(Werder, Diederich von dem; Übers. - Torquato Tasso).
Frankfurt, Daniel und David Aubrij u. Clemens Schleich, 1626.. . Erste Ausgabe der Werderschen Tasso-Übersetzung, von größter Seltenheit. Werder (1584-1657) stammte aus anhaltinischem Uradel. Bis 1622 hatte er sich große Verdienste sowohl als Truppenführer wie auch als Diplomat erworben, bis er nach Tillys Einfall in Hessen in Ungnade fiel und sich auf sein Rittergut bei Köthen zurückzog. "Hier unternahm er das Wagnis der Versübersetzung von Tassos großem Epos 'Gerusaleme liberata' ... W's Landesfürst, Ludwig Anhalt von Köthen, erwarb in ihm einen zuverlässigen Freund und Mitarbeiter, auf dessen fachmännisches Urteil er sich von nun an stets verlassen sollte. Jetzt erst begann die eigentliche Blütezeit der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft, die bis dahin noch nie literarisch hervorgetreten war" (Dünnhaupt). Mit seiner reichen Ausstattung wie kaum ein Buch dieser Zeit ist es "eines der schönsten des Jahrhunderts, ... vielleicht das bedeutendste auch. Es war das erste deutsche Gedicht seit den Tagen Staufischer Wortschönheit, das eine große Reimkunst erforderte" (Nadler). "In jedem Fall ist dieses großangelegte Gedicht ... eins der wenigen nicht durch Opitz bestimmten Werke. Feurig und reif zugleich hat Werder diese Übersetzung gemacht, ... auf Deutsch und mit den Mitteln seiner Zeit den heroischen Geist von Tasso's Epos so richtig und tief erfaßt, daß sein Werk zugleich die erste Großtat der neuen Bildungsdichtung und das letzte echte deutsche Rittergedicht genannt werden muß" (Wolfskehl im Katalog Manheimer). Die schöne Ausstattung mit der ziemlich großen Fraktur, den Seitenumr … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Galiani Celestino].
Libro manoscritto in - 4° (cm. 25,5), legatura coeva in p. pergamena rigida, titolo ms. al dorso, tagli marmorizzati; cc. [1] 112 [2 bb.] numerate in ottimo stato, con elegante calligrafia di gusto barocco, ampi margini, titolo al frontespizio inquadrato in ricca cornice calcografica; 1 ritratto della regina Cristina in antiporta aggiunto nel XIX secolo; antica firma di possesso alla carta 112 «Gio. Bernabei». Libro politico, ampia testimonianza inedita della regina transgender Cristina (1626 - 1689) che, affascinata dalla scienza e dall'alchimia, tentò di trasformare Stoccolma nell'Atene del Nord, abiurò il luteranesimo ed esiliò in sella a un cavallo verso Roma. Oltre alla spassosa descrizione dell'ambigua regina che «non ha punto del donnesco» [p.1], il libro racconta nei dettagli il suo viaggio nello Stato della Chiesa, la sua rinuncia alla Corona Reale, i suoi «disgusti» con gli spagnoli, la sua uccisione del marchese traditore; riporta poi un paio di sue lettere e il testamento in cui nomina unico erede il cardinale Decio Azzolini; in fine vi è un sonetto e l'indice. Il fatto che Cristina fosse nata con una spiccata ipertrofia clitoridea e che in vita avesse atteggiamenti mascolini (rifiutò Blaise Pascal in favore dell'amore gay per una dama) fomentò dilemmi sulla sua identità sessuale, tanto da condurre ancora nel 1965 un antropologo a riesumarne la salma per un esame [Hjortsjö C.H.. Drottning Christina. Lund 1966]. L'autore del manoscritto alimenta questi dubbi e viene da noi identificato in Celestino Galiani (1681 - 1753), zio e precettore dell'economista Ferdinand … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nominato archiatra del Granduca Ferdinando II, lasciò vari importanti studi tanto letterarari quanto scientifici, e morì a Pisa nel 1697. "I suoi studi, fra i quali quelli intorno alla generazione spontanea e al veleno delle vipere, rivestono particolare importanza nella storia della scienza moderna, per la loro opera di demolizione di alcune teorie di stampo aristotelico a favore di un'attività sperimentale e per la loro applicazione in campo medico di una pratica terapeutica di impostazione ippocratica, costruita su regole di prevenzione e sull'uso di rimedi esclusivamente naturali e su precetti di vita equilibrata.

Thirty Years' War]
Impressa en la ciudad Imperial de Augusta [i.e. Trier]: con facultad de la Sacra Magestad del Emperador, 1626. [16]pp. Small folio. Dbd. Contemporary manuscript docketing on p.[16] and contemporary ink underscoring on p.[7]. Some loss, repaired in silk, from chipping at gutter and from worming in several leaves, the latter affecting some text but not exceeding 1 x 1 inch in area. Closed tears in final leaf, repaired with very early paper on verso. Light staining and foxing. Overall very good. The original Spanish translation of an important invective against Louis XIII during the first phase of France's involvement in the Thirty Years' War. At the time of this publication in 1626, France had actively begun to support the Protestant side in the conflict, concerned with the political threat of the Hapsburg states that surrounded it on three sides (in Spain and Spanish-controlled Flanders to the south and north and the Holy Roman Empire in Germany to the East). In 1624, Cardinal Richelieu was appointed to the Royal Council of Louis XIII and immediately began to institute a vigorous anti-Hapsburg policy. The following year France joined England in subsidizing the efforts of Christian IV of Denmark to defend Lower Saxony against the Holy Roman Empire, beginning an involvement in the war that would eventually lead to its own military participation against its fellow Catholic powers. The present document is a long and detailed warning to Louis XIII against pursuing a course of actions that would pit France against the rest of the Catholic world. According to the document, itse … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alcune antiche annotazioni marginali a penna; carta qua e là un po? ingiallita o arrossata. Rara prima edizione italiana delle "Novelas Ejemplares". Le 12 ?novelas?, termine di origine italiana che Cervantes si felicitava di aver usato per la prima volta nella letteratura spagnola, vennero scritte tra il 1590 e il 1612 e pubblicate a Madrid nel 1613. «Nello svolgimento dell?arte cervantina, le Novelas ejemplares costituiscono nel loro complesso una nota pittorica e coloristica... dovunque si sente la serena gioia del raccontare, e dovunque traspare la felicità di cogliere le luci e le ombre della vita e di incidere in pochi tratti espressivi i gesti e le anime» (Treccani). Del Rio y Rico, Cervantes, 778. Palau, n. 53548: "Traducción concienzuda. Algunos versos se conservan en castellano, y en los márgenes se aclaran frases difíciles." Rare first Italian edition. A few old marginal ink annotations and some age browning here and there. Generally a good copy bound in early 19th century half vellum with two labels on spine.

Five volumes, folio (in sixes), with seven double-page engraved maps, and 88 smaller maps or illustrations in the text; additional ornamental title page to the first volume; a few marginal repairs, some of the in-text maps just trimmed by binder at margins, the Virginia and New England maps in in the fourth volume expertly backed on linen; generally in fine condition; in a handsome early 20th-century binding of dark brown crushed morocco, central gilt arabesque on covers, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers with inner gilt dentelle borders, by Pratt with his stamp in each volume. The classic anthology of exploration: 'This is one of the fullest and most important collections of voyages and travels in the English language' (Church). This is a splendid set (in a handsome binding by the 19th-century London binder Pratt) of the monumental sequel to Hakluyt's collection of voyages. The five mighty volumes, encompassing some twelve hundred separate narratives, 'hold many a stirring tale of bravery at sea, ice under a midnight sun in Arctic seas or, far away south, under a tropic moon or brazen noontide sun. They tell of parching thirst, and freezing cold, of chill winds that searched men to the bone, and of the hot breath of desert sands that scorched their flesh and drove them crazed to death...'

Daniel, Samuel
London: Printed [by Nicholas Okes] for Simon Waterson Folio (27.5 cm, 10.8"). [10], 222 pp.. 1626 [with] Trussell, John. A continuation of the Collection of the history of England, beginning where Samuel Daniell Esquire ended... London: Pr. by M[ary] D[awson] for Ephraim Dawson, 1636. Folio. [8], 260 pp. (pagination skips 243/44). Daniel (1562?-1619), a poet and historian, was educated at Oxford but left without taking a degree. He subsequently achieved great popular success and influence as a poet of the dolce stile, to the point that Spenser obliquely praised him in the Prothalamion and Shakespeare took his Civil Wars as a source for the history plays. In 1612 Daniel brought out his first important prose work, The First Part of the Historie of England. The present work completes that one, and after recapitulating the earlier history in just 22 pages, takes the story from the Conquest to the end of the reign of Edward III. Following that is Trussell's further completion of the history, extending through the life and reign of Richard III. The Collection is here in an early edition, following the first of 1618, and the Continuation in the => first edition. The main title is printed within a woodcut "arabesque" border and the text is in roman within line borders defining space for sidenotes.

"D'Aubigne, Theodore Agrippa"
Amsterdam [i.e.Geneva]: Heritiers de Hier. Comelin [i.e. Pierre Aubert]. 1626. "Second edition, revised and augmented; folio, pp. 20, 1189 columns, 744 columns (so paged), pp. [40]; top of spine chipped, 3 small worm holes through the upper cover and into the first few leaves; occasional light foxing, but generally a clean, sound copy in full contemporary calf, gilt. D'Aubigne (1552-1630) was the son of a zealous Huguenot who instilled in him an abiding protestant sympathy and an almost reckless disregard for personal safety in the Protestant struggle. He was present at the siege of Orleans where his father was killed. He soon after went to Geneva to study under Beza. From there he attached himself to the Huguenot army under the command of the Prince of Conde. Eventually he joined the retinue of Henry of Navarre, and proved himself of great service to the future king, both as a soldier and a counselor. After Henry's elevation to the throne, the king found d'Aubigne's rough manner and caustic criticisms tiresome (in his literary works he freely exercised his gift of sarcasm with regard to the king and his family) and the rift between the two widened when the king converted to Catholicism. By the time he published the third volume of the present work, it was ordered to be burned by the common hangman, so free and unguarded was its satire. He fled to Geneva in 1620 where he lived the rest of his life. The Histoire Universelle is the work for which d'Aubigne is best remembered, ""a lively chronicle of the incidents of camp and court life, [forming] a very va … [Click Below for Full Description]
