RICCARDI (Nicolo).
in Genova, per Giuseppe Pavoni, 1626. - 2 parties en 1 volume in-folio. 2ff. 429pp. et 23ff. 483pp. Reliure ancienne, plats refaits. Edition Originale fort rare de ce recueil de "raisonnements" théologiques à la gloire de la Vierge Marie composé par Nicolo Riccardi (1585-1639), surnommé "le Monstre de Rome" tant pour son obésité que pour l'énormité de son savoir scholastique. Natif de Gênes mais élevé dès sa plus tendre enfance en Espagne, Riccardi se fit remarquer par ses talents oratoires qui le firent nommer comme prédicateur à la cour de Madrid puis à Rome où il devint Maître du Sacré Palais en 1629. Ce livre publié en 1626 est son premier ouvrage. "Ses mouvements passionnés et la hardiesse des pensées l'entrainaient quelquefois jusqu'aux limites de l'hérésie" (Larousse). Riccardi est surtout connu de nos jours pour avoir autorisé en 1632 la publication des fameux "Dialogi" de Galilée dont il écrivit la préface, conduisant à l'un des épisodes les plus célèbres de l'histoire des sciences ("e pur si muove"). "Mais Galilée pouvait-il arriver à obtenir le permis d’imprimer ses "Dialogues sur le flux et le reflux de la mer"? Car dans son ouvrage il souhaitait apporter une confirmation de l'héliocentrisme grâce à une explication du phénomène des marées fondée sur le mouvement de la terre qu'il considèrait comme vrai. Le prince Cesi, Giovanni Ciampoli et Benedetto Castelli l'encouragent à se rendre à Rome avec le manuscrit du livre. Certes rien n’est assuré car, comme le montre un entretien entre Castelli et le cardinal Francesco Barberini, le mouvement de la terre p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 954. Den holländske köpmannen och ekonomiska skriftställaren Willem Usselinx (1567-1647) förvärvade som ung ingående kunskaper om handels- och kolonisationsmöjligheter i Amerika. Sedan han 1623 utmanövrerats från det holländska västindiska kompani han själv varit med om att bygga upp, erbjöd han sina tjänster till Sverige och Danmark. Han argumenterade för att Östersjöländerna skulle utvidga sin handel med Amerika. Usselinx idéer fick snabbt framgång i Sverige och Gustav II Adolf lät grunda ett svenskt kompani för handel med Västindien och Nordamerika redan 1626. Det fick namnet Söderkompaniet och i planen för detta ingick även den koloni som Sverige skaffade sig i Delaware. Finansieringen av kompaniet gick dock trögt och Usselinx försökte ihärdigt finna finansiärer utomlands, framförallt i Tyskland

GRIMALDI Giovanni Francesco (1605 - 1680) disegnò ed incise
BOLOGNA, metà del XVII secoloIncisione originale eseguita all' acquaforte su matrice di rame, in basso a sinistra indicazione dell' autore. Raffinato paesaggio animato inscritto entro tondo tipografico. La trasposizione su lastra eseguita con abile e fine tratteggio è opera di Giovanni Francesco Grimaldi, artista, scenografo ed architetto bolognese attivo perlopiù a Roma, noto per la sua abilità di disegnatore, incisore e pittore di paesaggi. A Roma dipinse decorazioni con vedute paesistiche nella villa Doria Pamphili ( da lui stesso progettata in collaborazione con Algardi ), nel palazzo Borghese, al Quirinale ed in S. Maria ai Monti. Grimaldi rappresenta la prosecuzione del particolare tipo di paesaggio creato da Antonio Carracci e dal Domenichino, che egli diffuse anche in quadri da cavalletto, ben identificabili per il colore brillante e smaltato, e in numerosissimi disegni di accurata fattura . Allievo dei Carracci a Bologna nel 1626 si stabilì a Roma, dove nel 1636 divenne membro dell'Accademia di San Luca .La sua attività si estese fino alla corte parigina di Luigi XIV , affrescando anche il Louvre ed il palazzo del Cardinal Mazzarino . Alcuni contributi recenti della storia dell'arte e della critica hanno approfondito aspetti specifici e peculiari delle sua produzione, impegnato nell'ambito della scenografia e degli allestimenti effimeri, emerge in particolare la sua forma di decoratore di interni in importanti ville e palazzi secenteschi di cui disegnò anche gli arredi e i giardini. Esemplare in buone condizioni conservative.

THOU, Jacques-Auguste de ( París, 1553-1617)
Apud Heredes Petri de la Roviere, Ginebra, 1626. Materia: Obra del siglo XVII de gran prestigio y fama. La Historia Universal que Thou comenzó en 1593 fue concebida sobre el rigor que ofrecía la metódica investigación. Es uno de los primeros intentos de parcialidad histórica, que se refleja en el tratamiento de los enfrentamientos religiosos. Esto llevó a enviar el original a Ginebra para su impresión y evitar la censura eclesiástica. Hasta el siglo de las luces, la obra fue un modelo de historiografía, siendo alabada por los grandes filósofos del momento como Voltaire, Lessing o Herder. Destacado e interesante es el relato histórico concerniente a América. Publicación: Ginebra, Apud Heredes Petri de la Roviere, 1626. Descripción: Folio. 350 x 230 mm. 5 tomos en 4 volúmenes V.1: [48], 810 p., [1] h. b., [52], [3] h. b. V.2; [2] h. b., 992 p., [14] p, [2] h. b.; V.3 : [3] h. b. 480 p., [80] p.

Bella encuadernación en plena piel de época, lomo con nervios, decoraciones en dorado, guardas decoradas en agua, cortes en rojo. Filetes en plano y contraplano. Texto en latín. Estado de conservación: Papel con ligeros puntos de oxidación metaloférrica propios de la época. Amplios márgenes. Lomos deteriorados. Tapa del vol. 5 suelta. Buen conjunto.

GUACCIUM FRANCISCUM MARIAM.
Ex Collegii Ambrosiani Typ. 1626 In 8°, m. pelle no coeva, pp. 391 + 39 inc. xilografiche (7,5 x 6 cm) raffiguranti Satana, nei suoi molteplici aspetti, con i suoi adepti ed alcune scene di malefici. Front. su ricca e pregevole inc. Testata. Capilettera. Tagli spruzzati blu, piatti marmorizzati. La stesura del Compendium Maleficarum si colloca molto probabilmente durante il soggiorno del suo autore in Germania, alla corte di Guglielmo III, duca di Julich-Clevenberg nel 1608. Frate dell'ordine di Sant'Ambrogio ad Nemus, Guaccio nacque a Milano in data incerta ma collocabile nei decenni centrali del Cinquecento. Risale, infatti, proprio al 1605 la sua convocazione al capezzale del duca Guglielmo, afflitto da una strana malattia. Ravvisando alcuni sintomi che per l'epoca non erano per niente rari, il frate pronunciò la sua diagnosi: era Satana, il perfido signore degli inferi, invocato dalla detestabile figura di un mediatore terreno che in cambio d'effimeri vantaggi gli avrebbe ceduto l'anima. Dopo aver giustificato il suo libro con lo scopo di contrastare l'arroganza degli stregoni, che andava sempre più crescendo, egli elencò i vari tipi di maleficio di amore e di odio, i legamenti, le malattie causate dai demoni; nell'ultima parte spiegò i rimedi divini e naturali per le vittime della stregoneria, oltre a dare formule per esorcizzare cibi e medicamenti.

SCHEINER, Christoph
Engraved allegorical frontis., fine engraved port. of the Duke of Bracciano, engraved vignette on title, & very many finely engraved illus. in the text (some full-page) depicting the author's observations of sunspots and the telescopes used by him. 20 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 784 pp., one blank leaf, [36] pp. Large thick folio (390 x 267 mm.), cont. vellum over boards (some wear to extremities, joint cracked but strong, light browning & occasional minor marginal dampstaining). Bracciano: [Privately Printed by] A. Phaeus, 1626-30. First edition, and a remarkable large and thick paper copy, of Scheiner's greatest work; this magnificent book, which is today very rare on the market, is the most richly and superbly illustrated astronomy book published in the first half of the 17th century. It describes and depicts Scheiner's observations of sunspots and his telescopes. We have never seen a large and thick paper copy of this book before; it is simply gigantic when compared to a normal copy (which usually measures about 348 x 240 mm.). In 1611, Scheiner constructed a telescope with which he began to make astronomical observations, and in March of that year, he detected the presence of spots on the sun. Scheiner's claim to the discovery of sun spots, independently of Galileo, was the origin of one of the most famous and heated controversies in the history of science. This book contains the summation of Scheiner's observations of the sun. He confirmed his method and criticized Galileo for failing to mention the inclination of the axis of rotation to the plane of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very good overall. Tight hinges and with all leather elements in sound condition, with just a bit of rubbing along the edges; paper-covered boards are edgeworn and rubbed along the faces; internally quite nice, with just a bit of occasional foxing.

Roger Bateman built Middleton Hall in 1626 (rebuilt 1825); Thomas Bateman Sr. (1760-1847) was a famed cotton magnate and later High Sheriff of Derbyshire noted for his exceptional library; his son William (1788-1836) was an amateur antiquarian and archeologist, and his only son, Thomas Jr. (1821-61), became a controversial pioneering archeologist known as the "Squire of Bateman" and the "Barrow Knight" because of his extensive excavation of barrows or burial mounds.

Andrade, Antonio de:
Lisbon: Mateo Pineiro, 1626.. 23 leaves. Small quarto. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Manuscript foliations in upper outer corner of recto of each leaf. A bit of faint spotting. Very good. The first Spanish language edition, following by a few months the first edition (which was printed in Portuguese), printed in Lisbon the same year. This is the second overall printing of Andrade's important letter. The first authoritative, printed account of a European traveller's visit to Tibet. Antonio de Andrade (1580- 1634) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary who entered the order in 1596. From 1600 to 1624 he was the principal missionary in the Indies. In 1624, with the support of the Moghul emperor, he set out for Tibet, hoping to make contact with a reported trans-Himalayan Christian community. Travelling north to the upper Ganges and then to Mana, on the present-day border of Tibet, he continued on past local resistance to the state of Guge, where he encountered his first Buddhists. Andrade successfully convinced the King to allow the teaching of Christianity, and returned to Agra, where he wrote the present letter to his superiors, relating his journey and his experiences. Andrade would ultimately return to Tibet two more times, consecrating a church at Tsaparang in 1626. Andrade's printed letter is crucially important as being the first authentic report of Tibet by a European who undoubtedly went there (the 14th-century visit of Odorico de Pordenone remains in dispute). It was very popular and quickly went through many editions. "Throughout Cathol … [Click Below for Full Description]

D'Aubigne, Theodore Agrippa
Heritiers de Hier. Comelin [i.e. Pierre Aubert], Amsterdam [i.e.Geneva], 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 valuable source for the … [Click Below for Full Description]
