John SPEED (1552 - 1629)
1626. "Si tratta di una delle più emblematiche carte d'America mai prodotte, presentata qui nel suo secondo stato, con l'aggiunta di Boston, Conectacut, Lon Ile, Mary land and Carolina. La mappa è di grande importanza perché vanta tutta una serie di ""primati"": è la prima mappa inserita in un atlante a raffigurare la California come un'isola, e la prima a rappresentare con esattezza la costa orientale nord americana. Cartograficamente è basata sulle prime mappe dell'olandese Abraham Goos, ma segue gli aggiornamenti della mappa di Henry Briggs del 1625, in cui appunto la California ha una forma insulare. E' di rilievo la completa assenza dei Grandi Laghi - che nel 1626 dovevano ancora essere concepiti dai cartografi europei. Non è riportato nessuno dei regni leggendari: Quivara, Teguayo, Cibola, ecc sono noti. Nel Sud America è riportato il leggendario Lago Parime, nella Guiana, associato al mito di El Dorado; più a sud il mitico lago Eupana. Un'altra particolarità, è l'indicazione dello Stretto di Le Maire, che separa la Terra del Fuoco da un altro misterioso istmo chiamato ""States Land"", che in effetti corrisponde alla moderna Isola degli Stati. Il navigatore Jacob Le Maire aveva attraversato il canale tra le due isole, a cui darà il suo nome, durante la sua navigazione intorno a Capo Horn e nel Pacifico, nel 1615. Nell'Artico, sono riportate le due isole fantasma di Frislandia e Brasil, anche nota come Hy Brasil, di cui si narrava che fosse completamente avvolta dalla nebbia e che fosse visibile solo una volta ogni sette anni. L'ultima mappa a riportare l'isola del Bra … [Click Below for Full Description]

DOCUMENTO MANUSCRITO. SIGLO XVII. DELIBERACION SOBRE DISOLUCION DE LAS CORTES DE ARAGON. SEÑAL REAL DE FELIPE IV
La Junta de las materias de Aragon y Cortes dice lo que se le ofreze en razon de lo que VMgd. es servido mandar en la consulta inclussa sobre el punto de disolver las Cortes en este Reyno. [En este caso la disolución sería] por el medio de no darse otra prorrogacion, no ajustandose los Brazos a la concesion de la gente para la defensa de este Reyno con effecto, o, prometiendolo. Y porque la materia es te tanta gravedad y importancia como se dexa considerar ha dado mucho que discurrir a esta Junta en mas de una Sesion... [opinan que si siguen las Cortes y más en Zaragoza sin tratarse el tema del servicio al rey y más aún de la defensa en esa guerra de Cataluña, para lo cual fue concedida la prórroga antes de partir el rey, se estaría perdiendo el tiempo. Pues parece que este plazo sirve] solamente para recevir quexas de los Brazos de los Pueblos y particulares y para inquietarse con ellas y dificultarlo todo. Y asimismo por otra parte los daños que podrian seguir de disolverse las Cortes en el estado presente, assi por lo que podria turbar y desconsolar a los naturales... como por la disolucion de todos los Fueros de las del año 1626 y de otras antecedentes, porque si bien puede tener favorable interpretacion este punto, el ponerlo en disputa en estos tiempos no puede ser lo mas seguro, sino que lo sera el elegir lo justo y huir de lo dudoso. [Le dice la Junta al rey que hay plazo de actuación hasta primeros de diciembre, que es cuando vence la prórroga] y que mientras este dura no se pueden disolver las Cortes y que entretanto la materia de los aloxamientos se asentara como se puede esperar... aunque con algunas dificultades... y que concluido esto se ha de ajustar lo de la defensa... en que se puede prometer que entraran los Brazos mas llanamente... [intentando que en el plazo los Brazos entiendan la conveniencia de ayudar y evitar la disolución de las Cortes] pues si este intento no saliere bien en estos días antes del fin del termino... la Junta representará a VM

(THEMISTOCLES).
Roma, Ludovico Grignano, 1626. In-4ø; 70 pp., 1 c. (errata); al titolo stemma del dedicatario, papa Urbano VIII Barberini. Testo greco e latino su due colonne a fronte. Legatura in tutto cartoncino settecentesco alla rustica, dorso rinforzato in carta decorata. Frontespizio leggermente rifilato in basso, a sfiorare l'ultima riga a stampa. Editio princeps (testo originale greco con traduzione latina a fronte), tratta dall'unico manoscritto superstite di questo testo, la cui attribuzione a Temistocle risulta incerta: "queste epistole di Temistocle son tratte da un codice palatino del secolo X, che Š l'unico, per quanto si sappia, che le contenga. Esse furono pubblicate nel 1626, per la prima volta, da Joannes Matteus Caryphilus, vescovo greco, in Roma. L'editore le credette senz'altro autentiche; ma ci furono taluni, i quali sospettarono della frode? Le pretese lettere temistocliane, in tutto 21, sono dirette a quattordici personaggi. Di esse quella che ha pi-- importanza Š ? [quella] scritta a Polignoto" (Savelli). Schweiger I, p. 308. A. Savelli, Temistocle dal primo processo alla sua morte. Studio, Firenze 1893, pp. 49-50.

PRIMA RARA EDIZIONE, a cui ne seguì una seconda a Napoli l'anno successivo, di questo celeberrimo testo che conclude la serie di pubblicazioni sulla "controversia delle comete", che vide il gesuita savonese Orazio Grassi contrapporsi alla pubblicazione del Saggiatore di Galileo, grandioso testo che fu la replica di Galileo a un'opera precedente sempre di Grassi, il Libra astronomica ac philosophica (Perugia, 1619). Cfr. Museo Galileo, Istituto e Museo di Storia della Scienza, "Nato a Savona nel 1590, Orazio Grassi entrò a diciotto anni nella Compagnia di Gesù, divenendo presto professore di matematica. Il Grassi fu anche architetto, ma la sua fama è legata principalmente alla disputa sulle comete che lo oppose a Galileo. Nel 1618 l'apparizione di tre comete suscitò grande interesse nel mondo scientifico e Grassi fu incaricato dai propri confratelli di tenere una pubblica trattazione presso il Collegio Romano, che fu poi data alle stampe con il titolo “De tribus cometis ”. Sollecitato da più parti Galileo fu invitato a esprimersi su questo fenomeno celeste, che p … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPEED, John
are to be sold in popes head Alley against the Exchnage by I.S. and George Humble cum privilegio, 1626 [but 1627]. [London],: are to be sold in popes head Alley against the Exchnage by I.S. and George Humble cum privilegio,, 1626 [but 1627].. Double-page engraved map, with fine hand-colour in full. For this map Abraham Goos drew “on his engraving of North America in 1624, and the Briggs of 1625, to depict California as an island once more. He was the only Dutch cartographer to do so for some considerable time. There are five fewer place-names in California than the Briggs. He includes a similar faint northwest coastline and Strait of Anian. ‘Brasil' and ‘Frisland', remnants from the sixteenth century, make a stubborn appearance in the North Atlantic. The fledgling colonies of Plymouth in New England, and ‘Iames Citti' in Virginia, are both recognised. Decorating the whole are three attractive borders. The two sides illustrated the natives of the continent, the left bears those of the north, and the right those of the south. Despite the map's obvious attention to the English presence in North America, none of the eight towns represented in the third is from that part. This is owing to the lack of any contemporary views to draw on” (Burden). John Speed is perhaps the most famous single figure in the early history of the English map trade. He was a member of the Merchant Taylors' Company, made a freeman of the city in September 1580, and later Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. By training he was probably a rolling-press printer, but by interest he was a historian, and Q … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCHEINER, Christoph.
Bracciano: Andreas Phaeus, 1626-30. First edition. Hardcover. <p>First edition of the most lavishly illustrated astronomical work published in the first half of the seventeenth century, with many full-page illustrations of Scheiner's observations of the sun and of the optical instruments he had designed for the purpose. "For his masterpiece, Scheiner produced the first monograph on a heavenly body, the Sun. Even today it is still an impressive volume, with scores of engravings of sunspots and the various instruments needed for solar observations" (<em>Jesuit Science in the Age of Galileo</em>). "Scheiner's drawings in the <em>Rosa Ursina </em>are of almost modern quality, and there was little improvement in solar imaging until 1905" (Britannica). In this work "Scheiner agreed with Galileo that sunspots are on the Sun's surface or in its atmosphere, that they are often generated and perish there, and that the Sun is therefore not perfect. Scheiner further advocated a fluid heavens (against the Aristotelian solid spheres), and he pioneered new ways of representing the motions of spots across the Sun's face" (Galileo Project). Scheiner was one of the first to observe sunspots by telescope, in March 1611, and in 1612 he published his findings anonymously. This led to a famous controversy with Galileo, who claimed to have observed sunspots earlier, involving the exchange of several letters. Galileo then turned to other matters, notably the preparation of the <em>Dialogo</em>, but Scheiner continued his observations of sunspots, culminating in the publication of the present work … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale de ce très rare manuel trilingue, publié par Domenico Sforzino qui s'en explique dans un avis aux lecteurs: "Sçaichant que le R.P. Antoine Fabre avoit cest grammaire en trois langues, sçavoir Françoise, Italiene, et Espagnolle, très désirée, j'ay avec toute industrie et par tous les moyens tasché l'avoir entre les mains, pour mieux pouvoir embellir et orner vos estudes, et il y a long temps qu'auroit esté mise en lumière si le stampateur qui l'avoit commencée l'eusse peu poursuivre mais lon ny a peu faire autre. Ce que justifiera la diversité des Caractères ". En effet, l'impression du volume semble avoir été particulièrement chaotique si l'on peut en juger par les nombreuses erreurs de pagination, répétitions de texte et variantes de caractères qui le parsèment. Les exemplaires ayant été assemblés à partir de plusieurs jeux de feuillets, imprimés séparément par plusieurs imprimeurs, il existe de nombreuses variantes et le nombre de feuillets préliminaires peut varier d'un exemplaire à l'autre. Notre exemplaire est identique à celui décrit par le catalogue collectif italien. On trouve à la fin, avec une pagination séparée, un recueil de dialogues à l'usage des voyageurs, donnant un exemple de conversation entre un voyageur et un garçon hôtelier, entre deux amis, entre un messager et un marchand, entre un rentier et un receveur, etc. Ce p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Andrade, Antonio de
Mateo Pineiro, Lisbon, 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 Catholic Europe thi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il renferme deux textes de la reine complétés par des notes sur un ensemble de médailles lui ayant appartenu. En 1692, André Galdenblad fit plusieurs copies des Pensées de la reine Christine. Arckenholtz, le premier éditeur de ses œuvres cite notamment la copie qui appartint au comte de Bielke, celle conservée dans la "" superbe bibliothèque de Sir Hans Sloane à Chelsea "". La Bibliothèque royale de Stockholm en possède également une. Arckenhotz précisait: "" J'ai d'autant moins balancé à l'adopter [L'ouvrage de loisir] que cette Princesse a été reconnue pour l'Auteur, aussi bien que d'une brochure portant le titre de Réflexions diverses sur la vie & les actions du Grand Alexandre. L'une et l'autre pièce sera jugée digne d'elle, comme renfermant plusieurs Maximes et Pensées sublimes, qui approchent assez de celles des meilleurs Auteurs de ce genre."" L'ouvrage de loisir est une suite de réflexions morales, politiques et religieuses ordonnées en différents thèmes.

S.l., 1626. 1 fort vol. in-4°, parchemin souple, titre écrit à la plume au dos. Reliure de l'époque, petit manque de vélin à l'angle sup. du premier plat, qq. cahiers déboîtés. Bon exemplaire. (4) ff., 678 pp., (8) ff. de table. Manque le dernier feuillet blanc, plusieurs passages soulignés à l'encre brune, qq. mouillures claires en tête, galerie de vers dans la marge int. sans atteinte au texte. Seconde édition du premier volume des Mémoires. Il couvre la période la plus sensible des guerres de religion (1572-1589). Le grand capitaine huguenot s'était retiré en 1620 dans son château de La Forêt sur Sèvre où il mourut en 1623. Ses héritiers firent appel à un imprimeur de Saumur, Jean Bureau, qui installa ses presses au château de La Forest pour imprimer ces Mémoires. Le premier volume vit le jour en 1624. Comme l'explique Hauser, il ne faut pas entendre "Mémoires" au sens moderne du terme : il s'agit plutôt d'un ensemble de pièces de Mornay antérieurement imprimés ou inédites (pamphlets, lettres, instructions, pièces officielles etc.) Haag VII, 541; Arbour, 12309; Hauser, 1612.

Lyon, par Barthelemy Vincent, 1626 ; in-8. 64ff. n. ch.-511pp. mal ch. 509. Basane mouchetée , dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre rouge, tranches rouges. Reliure de la fin du XVIIème s. Epidermures sur les plats, coins et coiffes frottés. Mouillure claire marginale. Bon exemplaire cependant. Cet ouvrage est le seul connu de l'auteur : médecin originaire du Bourbonnais (vers 1550-vers 1630), il était allié aux familles De Lorme et Gaulmyn (qu'il nome ses "cousins"). Il fit ses études à Paris et explique lui-même dans son livre qu'il exerça pendant 17 ans à Thiers. C'est dans cette ville qu'il composa son livre, destiné à poursuivre les deux volumes que Joubert avait publié sous le même titre en 1578 et 1579. Il ne se contente pas de compléter l'oeuvre de Jourbert, il en corrige aussi plusieurs assertions. Cette suite est dailleurs beaucoup plus rare que les ouvrages de son prédécesseur. Elle n'a jamais été rééditée. L'ouvrage est précédé d'une dédicace au Prince de Condé, et de 5 pièces liminaires intéressantes (épîtres, lettres, poésies en latin, sonnets et acrostiche) dues aux De Lorme père et fils, et à Gaulmyn. Le texte débute par une longue préface, puis est divisé en 5 livres dédiés à divers médecins, ainsi qu'à feu son fils et à ses 3 petits enfants (livre 5) :De la complexion et coustume. - De l'air et des vestments. - De l'appétit et de la soif. - Des repas et de l'embonpoint.

Light age yellowing, light damp-stain to upper margin of opening gathering, the odd minor marginal spot or thumb mark. A very good, clean copy, in contemporary limp vellum. First edition of the authors first work, dedicated to George Abbot, Archbishop of Canterbury, a virulent attack on Arminianism, and the opening broadside in Prynne's lifelong polemical battle against all non puritans. Although Prynne had devoted himself to the Law his interests began to lie more and more with religious reform, which he tackled in the publication of several pamphlets. In particular he was opposed to Arminianism (the doctrine that God had given people the choice to accept or reject him) in the court of Charles I. Prynne was an ardent puritan and thus believed in predestination and original sin. In this work he harshly criticized the Arminians and was summoned to court to defend the publication. He avoided imprisonment and continued to publish pamphlets attacking the corruption of the theatre, the wearing of long hair, sport on Sundays etc.. This work is important in highlighting the beginnings of the political and doctrinal split that would lead to the civil war.

In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps).

Sandys, Edwin
A Geneve, Par Pierre Aubert, 1626. In 16° (cm 10 x 16,4), legatura piena pergamena coeva con legacci, pp (8), 323, (4), (1) bianca, esemplare in buone condizioni, ancora aldina incisa in legno al front., timbretto al verso. Prima edizione della traduzione in francese del pastore ginevrino Jean Diodati di opera messa all'Index della Chiesa di Roma al suo apparire (l'anno successivo uscì traduzione italiana, subito anch'essa messa all'Indice e ivi rimasta per secoli), scritta dall'uomo politico inglese Sandys (m. 1629). Il terzo protagonista delle vicende bibliografiche di questo libro proibito è fra' Paolo Sarpi (1552-1626), teologo e canonista della Serenissima, "eretico" e "apostata", inviso alla Chiesa Cattolica per i continui attacchi e denunce di abusi e corruzioni, così come pure ai Protestanti, scomunicato nel 1606, autore di opere poste all'Index. Quest'opera fu messa all'Index con decreto 17 dicembre 1623. al quale sono dovute le lunghe "Additions" in carattere corsivo alla fine di ogni capitolo, autore successivamente della versione in italiano. Opera dalla duplice valenza, in quanto veemente polemica contro la Chiesa di Roma e primo abbozzo di un confronto tra Chiesa ortodossa e Riformati, essa si scaglia contro difetti e pecche tradizionalmente riconosciuti alla Chiesa di Roma; contro "les cabales des Jésuites, où sont les vrayes profondeurs de Sathan"; le superstiziose venerazioni dei Santi, e soprattutto della Madonna; le leggende spacciate per miracoli; i vizi degli Italiani, che traspaiono attraverso la corruzione della Santa Sede; contro l'istituto dell'Inqu … [Click Below for Full Description]
