        Dell' Historia di S. Luigi IX e delle Cose piu Memorabili occorse nella Guerra da lui fatta con Saraceni per l'Acquisto di Terra Santa

      nella Stamparia di Francesco Baba, Venice 1628 - FIRST EDITION thus. 4to. pp. (viii) 308 (xxxvi). Italic letter. Fine engraved architectural title with putti holding the arms of Louis IX above, signed M. Greuter, instruments of war and science to the sides, arms of the French Royal house beneath, woodcut printer’s device on recto of last, Large floriated woodcut initials, woodcut and typographical headpieces and ornaments, notes on the text in early hand on rear pastedown. Tiny worm holes to blank margins of t-p, small burn hole in engraved border, light mostly marginal spotting, small light waterstain in lower blank corner of first part, lower blank corner of Qq2 cut out, the occasional thumb mark and oil spot, small worm trail in blank upper margin towards end over two quires. A good, well margined copy, in contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, upper cover a little stained with ink spots, title ms. on spine. First edition of the Italian translation of this important and popular history of the crusades of Louis IX against the Turks for possession of the Holy Places, by the French historian, play-write and poet Pierre Matthieu, translated to Italian by Battista Parchi and dedicated by him to Angello Contarini the Venetian ambassador and patron of Galileo. (Contarini was sent to London in 1625 to congratulate Charles I on his accession.) Matthieu studied with the Jesuits, where he quickly mastered Latin, Greek and Hebrew, later studying law at Valencia and practicing at Lyon. He was among the members of a delegation sent by the people of Lyon to Henry IV in February 1594 to assure him of their loyalty. The king toured the city the following year and Matthieu was responsible for overseeing all the ceremonies for the royal reception. The success of his intervention, and the protection of his patron Pierre Jeannin in Paris, allowed him to obtain the title of historian at Paris. He was well received at Court, and on close terms with the King who was not averse to instructing him on the specifics of his reign. He fell ill in Toulouse while accompanying Louis XIII during the siege of Montauban and died at the age of 58. He was the author of numerous histories mostly covering the period of Henry III and IV and the civil wars, and a few monographs such as this one, which was particularly successful and was translated into both English and Italian. The works extensively covers the two crusades of Louis IX, which though unsuccessful bought him great prestige, and reflects the contemporary concern with the expansion of the Ottoman empire. Book one gives a brief history of Louis’s youth and his accession to the throne, and describes the background and preparations for Louis’ first crusades. Book two describes his approximately 15,000-strong army, that included 3,000 knights, and 5,000 crossbowmen, which sailed on 36 ships from the port of Aigues-Mortes, which had been specifically built to prepare for the crusade, and the arrival and stay in Cyprus; then his landing in Egypt and the capture there of the town of Damietta. Book three describes the march to Cairo, the siege of Mansourah, and Louis’ eventual defeat and capture. Book four describes the death of the King on his attempt at a second crusade and gives an account of his beatification. Much of his work is derived from Jean de Joinville’, Histoire de Saint Louis, though Matthieu’s account is particularly vivid and entertaining. A good unsophisticated copy. BM STC It, C17. II p. 558. Brunet III 1531 "Ouvrage recherchee a cause des pieces qu’il renferme." (of the edition of 1605). Italian [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Bullae et Decreta Recentiora

      1628. A Rare Collection of Seventeenth-Century Papal Bulls [Canon Law]. [Gregory XV (1554-1623), Pope]. [Urban VIII (1568-1644), Pope]. Bullae et Decreta Recentiora. [N.p.: S.n., c. 1628]. [viii], 298 pp. Quarto (8" x 6"). Contemporary limp vellum, early hand-lettered title and shelf number to spine, ties lacking. Moderate rubbing to extremities, chipping to center and foot of spine, corners bumped and lightly worn, hinges partially cracked, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning to text, somewhat darker in places, dampspotting in a few places, staining to some leaves. Early owner inscription (of a Jesuit library) to title page, a few brief annotations to text, interior otherwise clean. * With index. Arranged chronologically, this volume contains papal bulls and related documents from the pontificates of Popes Gregory XV and Urban VIII issued between 1621-1628. They offer an interesting perspective on the Church and Papal States at an important point in its history. (The expansion of political territory and church missions are two highlights from this period.) Analogous in organization to volumes of session laws, collections of papal bulls were issued sporadically from the fifteenth century onward. All are scarce today. OCLC locates 5 examples in North America, all from the seventeenth century, two in law schools (Harvard, UC-Berkeley). None are identical to our copy. Not in the British Museum Catalogue or Ferreira-Ibarra.

        Petits Voyages. Pars I-XII. [Including:] Gasparo Balbi. Navigationis ex Alepo ad regnum Pegui usque, novem continuis annis [.] absolutae descriptio.

      Frankfurt, Erasmus Kempffer, 1601-1628. - Folio (220 x 317 mm). 12 books bound in 4 volumes. With 10 engr. title pages, 252 engraved illustrations, 3 engr. views, 17 engr. maps, and 3 armorial engravings. Bound at the end are 5 extra maps and views (including a world map and a view of Jerusalem) from Marino Sanuto's 1611 "Liber secretorum fidelium crucis". Slightly later Spanish limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Ties. All twelve books of Théodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies and considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material on Africa, India, and South Asia. Notably, book seven includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the coast of modern Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Practically "none of th names of places on the coast between Qatar and Ras al Khaima occur in other sources before the end of the eighteenth century" (Slot). - A composite set, nine books in their first, the remaining three in their second edition. As several of the travellers were Protestants and their works banned by the Catholic church, this set was censored by the Spanish inquisition of Granada in 1708 (cf. vol. II, verso of title). Condemned authors are identified on the title pages, and various passages considered too crude or suggestive have been struck out or obliterated. In vol. X, a marginal note on p. 27 attempts to refute an account denouncing the cruelty of the Spanish in America. - Last in the library of Jean-Paul Morin, with his bookplate on the first flyleaf. Rather browned throughout, with occasional slight edge defects; two title pages are repaired. Wants a total of 11 plates, as well as the appendix on the Congo in vol. II and the Notice to the Reader in vol. IV. Balbi's section is complete and well preserved, with only two minor censorship marks. The only comparable copy in recent trade history is the Macclesfield set in contemporary gilt calfskin, auctioned off at Sotheby's in 2007 and currently offered by a U.S. dealer consortium for $150,000: that copy, however, is incomplete, wanting the final volumes XI and XII - the latter of which is "so rare that even Church lacked much of the text".

        Cosmographia, das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt [...].

      Basel, (Sebastian Henricpetri), 1628.. Folio (265 x 398 mm). Engr. allegorical title (with a portrait of Sebastian Münster within a cartouche at the bottom by Mathäus Merian), (24), 1752, (12) pp. Title page printed in red and black. With 26 double-page woodcut maps, woodcut portrait of Münster on verso of t. p., 72 double-page woodcut maps, plans and views, and about 1500 smaller woodcut illustrations of maps, plans, views, plants, animals, monsters, etc. in the text (including repeats). Contemp. vellum. All edges red.. A fine, tall, and very clean example of the final, largest and most important edition of Münster's monumental work. The "Cosmographia" by Sebastian Münster (1488-1552), a German cartographer and cosmographer, was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through 24 editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The present copy is of the last German edition, the best and most extensive one. It contains the newly cut woodblocks by Sebastian Petri in the "copperplate style" after the corresponding maps in the pre-1587 editions of Ortelius's "Theatrum". This includes the famous map of Sumatra with the inset of an elephant that had been moved from the map of Ceylon in the 1540 edition, as opinion shifted to make Sumatra the preferred candidate for the island of "Taprobana". Furthermore, 68 other maps and plans were published here for the first time. The famous map of Europe in the form of a queen (after Bucius 1537) appears on the verso of fol. E3. - In very good condition, with remargined paper (and some text) loss to the last leaf but one of the index at the end (but supplied with a replacement from a smaller copy of the 1614 edition). The best and most extended edition of the Cosmographia. Provenance: removed from the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-57), in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's "Suecia antiqua et hodierna", are laid in; several annotations in Swedish on the pastedowns). - Burmeister 86. Nordenskiöld collection 2, 159. Sabin 51396. Cf. Wessel, Von einem, der daheim blieb (Frankfurt, 2004); facsimile of this edition with introduction (1978).

        PIA DESIDERIA EMBLEMATIS, ELEGIIS & AFFECTIBUS SS. PATRUM ILLUSTRATA. Authore Hermanno Hugone Societatis Iesu ad Urbanum VIII Pont. Max. Sculpsit Christophorus à Sichem, pro P.I.P.

      Typis Henrici Aertssenii, Antverpiae 1628 - Testo latino. Cm.12,6x8,5. Pg.(30), 456, (2). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso a tre nervi. Tagli spruzzati. Con 46 "emblemi" incisi nel testo da Christoph van Sichem il giovane. Sempre nel testo 18 piccoli fregi ornamentali ovali, impressi su fondo nero, e numerosi altri finalini. Fresco esemplare. Peter Maurice Daly in "Companion to emblem studies" (Brooklyn, AMS Press, 2008; pg.109) definisce il presente testo "the most popular religious emblem book of the seventeenth century", tanto da conoscere 42 edizioni, solo in lingua latina. Ne è autore il padre gesuita belga Hermann Hugo (Bruxelles, 1588-1629), che compì gli studi di teologia e filosofia a Lovanio. Oltre a insegnare nei Collegi Gesuiti di Antwerp e di Bruxelles, svolse la pratica di cappellano militare al servizio di Ambrogio Spinola in Spagna e morì di peste a Rheinsberg. La presente costituisce la terza edizione dell'opera dopo quelle, sempre stampate ad Anversa, del 1624 e del 1627. Il ricchissimo apparato iconografico si deve alla mano di Christoph Van Sichem le jeune (1582 circa - 1658), uno dei maggiori illustratori dell'epoca, allievo di Jacques Gheyn, e sono ispirate a quelle di corredo alla prima edizione, opera di Boetius Adamsz a Bolswert (Bolsward in Frisia, 1586 circa - 1633), considerato con il fratello minore Schelte uno dei principali incisori a bulino al servizio di Rubens. L'Opera, attraverso le tavole assai significative, si articola in tre "libri" ("Gemitus Animae Poenitentis"; "Desideria Animae Sanctae"; "Suspiria Animae Amantis") in cui si espone il percorso per la salvezza, attraverso i gradini della purificazione, della illuminazione e della unione, accompagnando la parte grafica con i versi di Herman, principalmente ispirati ai Salmi. Le incisioni tendono a riprodurre scene di vita quotidiana, con due putti alati che simboleggiano l'Anima e l'Amore divino. > Praz, "Studies in 17th century imagery", 377.

La plume alerte et mordante de Spelta croque à merveille le portrait de la folie dans ses moindres atours. Livre singulier.

On notera qu'il fut sans doute un esprit frondeur, dont les idées libres lui valurent de nombreux déboires et voyages.

      BRONZINI CRISTOFORO - Three volumes, 4to; contemporary flexible vellum; (8), 142, (2), 130, (2), 126, (6) pp. + (2), 143, (1), 143, (1 blank), 130, (22) pp. + (12), 216, (8) pp. The first part is known in two different issues, our copy combines the two issues. On the front fly-leaf of the third volume is a full-page drawing showing an emblem with the initial PLC. Some browning, light dampstains, the front cover of a volume has slightly shrank, otherwise a very good, genuine copy. RARE FIRST EDITIONS. Bronzini was made cardinal by Pope Paul V in 1615. He then moved to Florence, where he conceived the idea of writing an ambitious work in praise of women. Della dignità et nobiltà delle donne should have originally comprised 24 parts (4 weeks of 6 days each), but the project was never completed. The first six days of the first week were written in 1618 and published between 1622 and 1625, while the first two days of the second week were printed respectively in 1628 and in 1632. Although already approved by the ecclesiastical authorities, the first book was condemned in 1622 "donec corrigatur" (cf. Index libror. prohib., Rome, 1664, p. 38). It is presumable that the condemnation refers to a previous edition, now lost, or that the edition was corrected while still under the presses. The work is written in the form of a dialogue. The scene is set in the Medici's garden in Rome during a hot summer. The interlocutors are six: three women, outstanding for their beauty, virtue and nobility (Margherita from Rome; Vittoria from Mantua; Leonora from Florence) and three men (the Prince of Tuscany; Tolomei from Ferrara, an opponent of women; Onorio, i.e. the author himself as defender of women) (cf. Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, XIV, 1972, pp. 463-64, M. Capucci). All parts of Bronzini's work are very rare. We are able to offer here the first three volumes. The fourth one, Della virtù e valore delle donne illustri dialogo di Christofano Bronzini d'Ancona. Diviso in quattro settimane; e ciascheduna di esse in sei giornate. settimana seconda, giornata settima, was issued in 1632 by Zanobi Pignoni. Catalogue of Seventeenth Century Italian Books in the British Library, London 1988, p. 155; G. B.

        Della libraria vaticana ragionamenti divisi in quattro parti. Ne quali non solamente si discorre dell'origine . ma anco con l'occasione delle pitture Con l'agiunta degli alfabeti delle lingue straniere, e con alcuni discorsi in fine de libri, e della stampa vaticana, e di molte altre librarie si publiche, come private in Roma. Con tre tavole.

      - 4to. (8), 331, (29) pp. With the printer's device on the title-page and at the end, a woodcut illustration of the Vatican library, and several specimens of exotic types (cf. A. Brogiotti e H.D.L. Vervliet, The Type Specimens of the Vatican Press, 1628, Amsterdam, 1968, p. 19). Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title on spine, new endpapers, lower inner margin of the title skillfully repaired, some light dampstains in the margin of the first quire, three manuscript entries inked out or erased on the title-page, light marginal foxing, but a very good, genuine copy. FIRST EDITION. A second issue was printed in 1608 under the title Vago, e diletteuole giardino di varie lettioni. A year later was published in Latin a more scientific work on the same subject with the title Bibliotheca Apostolica Vaticana by Angelo Rocca (1545-1620), head of the Vatican printing office and founder of the Biblioteca Angelica. The work, one of the earliest treatises on library science, is divided into four parts, each of which contains respectively 40, 16, 9, and 29 "discorsi'. In the first parts is mainly described the new library building commissioned by Pope Sixtus V and realized from 1587 to 1590 by Domenico Fontana, and the other urbanistic works executed by this architect. In the second part are delineated the paintings on the right wall of the Salone Sistino showing the ecumenical councils of the Church (from Nicea to Trent). The third part deals with the most famous libraries of the world as depicted on the left wall of the Salone. The last part are listed all who contributed to the invention of the alphabets as depicted on the pillars of the Salone. (cf. S.F.Ostrow, The Counter-Reformation and the End of the Century, in: "Rome. Artistic Centers of the Italian Renaissance", M.B. Hall, ed., Cambridge, 2005, pp. 287-289). Mentioned is also (Book IV, Discorso XXVII) the Stamperia Apostolica Vaticana, from which were probably borrowed the exotic types shown in the present work. The pontifical printing press, with technical and scientific staff in the direct service of the Holy See, having as its main purpose the publication and dissemination of knowledge of the manuscripts kept there, was established under Sixtus V with the bull Eam semper ex omnibus (April 27, 1587). A little later, the bull Immensa aeterni Dei (January 22, 1588) established a Congregation of Cardinals pro Typographia Vaticana, with the mandate of ensuring that the publications (including editions in the vernacular as well as in Latin, Greek and Oriental languages, in the original alphabets, relating mainly to the Holy Scriptures, the Church Fathers, collections of Papal Bulls, and other ecclesiastical works in defense of the faith) complied with the requirements of the Council of Trent (cf. J. Ruysschaert, La bibliothèque et la Typographie Vaticanes de Sixte V. Projects, étapes, continuités, in: "Miscellanea Bibliothecae Apostolicae Vaticanae" IV, Città del Vaticano, 1990, pp. 343-363). ".per la seconda [opera], quella di Pansa, rimangono oscure e la motivazione e l'impulso: anche se il volume è dedicato al Cardinal Scipione Gonzaga, non sappiamo chi abbia potuto autorizzare il giovane autore a fornire in lingua italiana, un resoconto di un'impresa ediliza e pittorica che era stata terminata, nei suoi tratti essenziali, appena da qualche giorno. Probabilmente anche qui fu lo stesso pontefice, compiaciuto per l'opuscolo di magnificazione poetica che Pansa gli aveva indirizzato nel 1588. e desideroso di completare la gamma delle informazioni celebrative sulla Biblioteca Vaticana, da una parte con il lavoro dotto e in latino, che Angelo Rocca aveva già intrapreso, dall'altra parte con una relazione divulgativa in lingua italiana da affidare al Muzio Pansa" (A. Serrai, Muzio Pansa e Angelo Rocca storiografi della Biblioteca Vaticana, in : "Il Bibliotecario",30, 1991, p. 2).

        De motu cordis & sanguinis in animalibus, anatomica exercitation: cum refutationibus Aemylii Parisani ... et Jacobi Primirosii.Leyden: Johann Maire, 1639.

      Third, but second complete, edition of the single most important and famous medical book ever published, containing Harvey's discovery and experimental proof of the circulation of the blood, which created a revolution in physiology comparable to the Copernican revolution in astronomy. Harvey's discovery was to become "the cornerstone of modern physiology and medicine" (Garrison-Morton). <i>De motu cordis</i> "is probably the most important book in the history of medicine. What Vesalius was to anatomy, Harvey was to physiology; the whole scientific outlook on the human body was transformed, and behind almost every important medical advance in modern times lies the work of Harvey" (Heirs of Hippocrates). This is the earliest edition that collectors can reasonably expect to obtain, the first edition (Frankfurt, 1628) being of the greatest rarity. The second edition (Venice, 1635), published with the <i>Exercitationes</i> of Emilio Parigiano (known as Parisanus), one of Harvey's many opponents, was fragmentary, lacking the plates, parts of the introduction and chapters I and XVI. In this edition, the publisher Maire restored these passages, included the illustrations, and also added the criticism and denials of James Primerose (<i>Animadversiones</i>, 1630) as a separate tract at the end of the book. The text of Harvey's treatise is printed passage by passage alternatively with the refutations of Parigiano.<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: S. Cunbert (ownership inscription "Bibliotheca medica 1722" on title); J.W.F. Stoll, Cologne 1796 (engraved bookplate); D. Lemberg, 1838 (owners name on title); Warren G. Smirl (his sale, Sotheby's London, 11 November 1994, lot 166, £18,400); Christie's New York, 14 April 2005, lot 120, $45,600). <br/><br/> "William Harvey (1578-1657), educated at Cambridge and Padua, became a successful physician in London. He was appointed physician to St Bartholomew's Hospital and to both James I and Charles I, and he accompanied the latter at the battle of Edgehill. <br/><br/> "Galen had regarded the veins as serving to convey to all parts of the body the nourishing blood elaborated in the liver. He recognized that both veins and arteries contained blood, and assumed that the arterial blood - clearly differentiable from the venous blood by its colour - was replenished where necessary from the venous supply through the septum of the heart. Sixteenth-century anatomists like Vesalius recognized that the septum was solid. The earliest published reference to the pulmonary or lesser circulation - passage of the blood from the right to the left side of the heart through the lungs - is in Servetus's theological treatise of I553, but as this was virtually unknown to medical men, the first real public enunciation must be regarded as the clear statement by Realdus Columbus in <i>De Re Anatomica</i> (1559). In I603 Harvey's teacher, Fabricius of Aquapendente, published a monograph on the valves in the veins - previously noted by others - the purpose of which he only partially understood. <br/><br/> "It was left for Harvey to combine these discoveries, to conceive the idea of a circulation of the entire blood system, and demonstrate it conclusively by an exhaustive series of dissections and physiological experiments. For twenty years Harvey pursued his objective in both human and comparative anatomy. He proved experimentally that the blood's motion is continuous and always in one direction, and that its actual amount and velocity makes it a physical impossibility for it to do otherwise than return to the heart by the venous route, the heart being itself a muscle and acting as a pump. He showed how the whole of the blood passes through the lungs, is returned to the left side of the heart, then passes through the general circulation and returns to the right side; he even suspected the existence of the capillaries connecting the smallest arteries with the smallest veins, but without the microscope he could not see them. They were discovered in 1661 by Malpighi. The arguments and demonstrations marshaled by Harvey were too cogent to admit of long resistance, and his work was accepted by medical men in his lifetime. Descartes used the discovery as a basis for his mechanistic physiology; English experimental scientists regarded the discovery as of equal importance with Copernican astronomy or Galilean physics; Lower supplemented Harvey's work by discovering the role of the lungs in supplying the arterial blood with air. With all this, Harvey's work did not effect any change in medical practice nor fundamentally alter contemporary views on physiology" (PMM). <br/><br/> It is significant that this edition was published at Leyden for, as Gjersten remarks, "it was in Holland that Harvey received his earliest and most committed support" (<i>Classics of Science</i>, p. 178). In his <i>Discours de la Méthode</i> (published the year before this edition by Harvey by the same publisher, Maire), Descartes had approved of the establishment of circulation, but differed with Harvey in the mechanism which achieved it: "he did not view the heart as a muscular pump but rather as an expansion chamber in which the blood is heated, rarefied and thus forced out of the heart. The Harveyan thesis was defended by an English physician, Roger Drake, at Leyden in 1640 and was further supported by publications from Sylvius (1614-72), Walaeus (1604-49) and Du Roy (1598-1679), all emanating from Leyden about the same time" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 179). <br/><br/> Heirs of Hippocrates 417; Grolier/Medicine 27 (first edition); Keynes 3; NLM/Krivatsy 5329; Parkinson and Lumb 1147; PMM 127 (first edition); Waller 4089; Wellcome I, 3070..

        America sive India Nova ad magnae Gerardi Mercatoris avi Universalis imitationem in compendium redacta

      Hondius, [Amsterdam 1628 - Copper-engraved map, early hand-colouring. French text on verso. Roundels at each corner with inset maps of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba and Hispaniola, the remaining containing the cartouche. (Expert restoration at sheet edges). A fine example of one of the most celebrated maps of the Americas, the only printed map by Gerard Mercator's grandson Michael. Made by Gerard's grandson Michael to complete the atlas begun by Gerard in 1584 ( Atlantis Pars Altera ), this map is noted for its outstanding design and beauty, particularly its symmetrical configuration of circular insets and Mannerist flow of vines, flowers and leaves surrounding the circular map. Largely based on Rumold Mercator's world map of 1587, this map aptly reflects 16th-century knowledge, theories and suppositions regarding the New World. Naturally, most of this new knowledge was coastal, and configurations of any large areas were greatly hampered by the lack of a sound means of determining longitude. Nevertheless, the collective accomplishment of explorers and mapmakers represented in this map is astounding, showing in a generally correct way the vast extent of the New World. "A few of the most famous theories are still present: a large inland lake in Canada, two of the four islands of the North Pole, a bulge to the west coast of South America and the large southern continent" (Burden). The map appeared in 1595 and 1606 editions of the Atlantis Pars Altera , after which the plate was sold to Jodocus Hondius, who reissued the maps in varying editions through 1639. The present example includes French text on verso (confirming it to be a Hondius issue), with signature mark "S" on verso, suggesting it to be from a 1628 edition of the atlas (see Koeman Me 28a).

        La destruttione di Gierusalemme del Sig. Conte Ridolfo Campeggi, e la prigiona del Santo Sepolcro di Christo, Del Signor Girolamo Tortoletti

      Rome: 1628. Small 8vo (141 x 96 mm). Collation: A-D8. 64 pp. (last page misnumbered ?"94?"). Small crucifixion woodcut on title. Slight browning. 18th-century pattern paper wrappers, blue-stained edges. *** ONLY EDITION. Campeggi's posthumously published verses in 114 stanzas in ottava rima relate in heart-rending images the siege and destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD 70. Descended from a noble Bolognese family, Count Campeggi (1565-1624) was an erudite and prolific author of libretti and madrigals and adept in most poetic genres of the early seicento. His verses, though skilled, bear occasional marks of the overblown Marinist style. Tortoletti's poem in 63 stanzas (pp. 43-64) appeared previously in 1625 (ICCU giving no locations) under the title used here as its drop-title: ?"Il santo sepolcro prigioniero. Lettera di Gierusalemme scritta a Roma.?" In it the personified Jerusalem, captive under Islamic rule, addresses Rome. During the same year Grignani published a discorso academic by Tortoletti on the "Turkish threat": Se l'Italia habbia forze sufficienti d'abbattere l'armi turchesche. The poems are prefaced by a dedication from the editor Federico Grossi to Vincenzo Moretti, dated 15 September 1628. No copies in OCLC, COPAC, etc.; ICCU lists 2 copies, both in Rome (Casatanense & Bib. Univ. Alessandrina). C. Mutini, art. DBI 17:470-72 (Campeggi).

      Elzevier, Leiden 1628 - Unquestionably one of the great book productions of the seventeenth century, if not of all time, and the most beautiful book of fencing extant. Many kings and princes of Europe gave their support to this sumptuous publication, and their grand engraved arms are each represented on the 9 dedicatory pages. The descriptions are printed in fine large type, with decorative initials, head and tail-pieces throughout. The book is very rarely found complete, with the portrait being especially scarce. This is a particularly fine sound copy, measuring 20.75 x 15.5 inches, providing good margins throughout. Bookplate of Lewis Richard Ashhurst inside cover. Despite the exquisite end result, the planned work relating to fighting on horseback was never realized. -- Willems 302; Brunet V 815; Lipperheide 2960; Rosenwald 1427; Copinger 4705. 2 books bound in one volume. Part I with 16 preliminary leaves including the beautifully engraved title, portrait, and 9 armorial plates, followed by 33 numbered engravings, all but one double-page, and each with 4-12 pages of explanatory text. Part II with 13 double-page plates and explanatory text. Including the title, there are 57 magnificent plates in all, engraved by Crispin de Pass, Bolswaert, Gellius, Stockius, and more than 10 other artists, depicting full-length figures in all manner of fencing attitudes, the floors covered with mathematical plans, and framed with fine decorative architectural backgrounds. Thick elephant folio, attractively bound in gilt-decorated 18th century calf. [Leyde: Bonaventura & Abraham Elzevier], 1628, though colophon and binding state 1630.

        Le blason des armoiries. (with) L' estat et comportement des armes. (with) Le tableau des armoiries de France.

      chez Rolet Boutonne, au palais, a l'entree de la petite Galerie des prisonniers 1628 - Folio. Three vols in one pp. 1) pp. [xii], 197, [iii]. 2) pp. [iv], 95, [i]. 3) pp. [viii], 70, [ii]. Roman letter. First two titles in red and black, large engraved printer&#146;s device on each, of two angels supporting the arms of Louis XIII, signed Picart on first, vol 1 with very numerous woodcut and engraved arms, vol two with woodcut arms and genealogical tables, small woodcut diagrams in text of third, all with fine floriated initials and head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, some leaves slightly browned, minor, light, marginal water-stains in places. Very good, clean, well margined copies, in contemporary limp vellum, slightly soiled, nibbled at edges in places, small stab hole in upper cover, upper edge a bit chewed. An excellent collection of three of the most important French works on heraldry, covering, between them all aspects of that art or science, all corrected and augmented and beautifully illustrated and printed. The first work by Bara concerns the history and tradition of heraldry starting with a general description of the forms in heraldry, with descriptions of the colours and form of arms and the use, meaning and history of the various symbols. The second part includes descriptions of the arms of a whole host of historical and mythical individuals, including Prester John, Alexander the Great, Hercules, and the arms of the Knights of the Round table, who were a significant element in medieval heraldry. (The identification of individuals from the Arthurian legends with particular arms is evidenced from as early as the 12th century, by the 15th century some 200 such arms had been attributed.) He also includes the arms of figures from the Old Testament, Greek and Roman mythology. The work ends with descriptions of the arms of the major houses of Europe and the high nobility of France. Scohier&#146;s work, regarded as one of the best French heraldic treatises, also starts with a general description of the form of arms. It then elaborates a method of compiling genealogies and describes how arms are passed from generation to generation, with significant sections on the rights and laws of the wearing of arms. The final work by Moreau is prefaced by an interesting letter addressed to &#147;La Noblesse Francoise&#148; describing the importance of arms and their heritage to the nobility and royalty. In it describes succinctly the purpose of this work, &#147;de rechercher les raisons des Armoiries tant principals, & substantielles, que parergues, & accessoires, comme de leurs Tymbres, Ordres, & Suports, & puis rebroussant iusqu&#146;a leur premiere origine, tascher de desfricher, & descouvrir l&#146;antiquite des plus grandes, & illustres.&#148;. As stated he researches the first origins of the use of arms and discusses in length the meaning of each major aspect of the design of arms and their first use, their original significance and modern interpretation. It is probable that the three works were put together by the publisher or a contemporary bookseller as they are complementary in design and use and represent the periods best works on heraldry. Brunet states that they are sometimes found together in this form. (Brunet, Bara I 642). 1) BM STC Fr. C17th B192. Brunet, I 642. Graesse I 287. 2) BM STC Fr. C17th S 475. Brunet V 234.
