        Plate from 'Academie de l'Espee'

      [Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir 1628 - A fine print from the most sumptuous book on fencing ever produced, which combines a strong design sense with beauty and historical importance, executed by one of the greatest engravers of the day. The image illustrates Thibault's theories of successful fencing using movement and mathematical principles. Thibault's work was produced during a period when the Italian rapier (or epee) held sway. "The Italians discovered the effectiveness of the dexterous use of the point rather than the edge of the sword. By the end of the 16th century, their lighter weapon.and simple, nimble, and controlled fencing style, emphasizing skill and speed rather than force, spread throughout Europe. Most of the wrestling tricks [used in earlier disciplines] were abandoned, the lunge was discovered, and fencing became established as an art" ( Encyclopaedia Britannica ). The present image marks the zenith of the use of the epee in Europe. "In the latter half of the 17th century, the sword and swordsmanship changed dramatically with a change in gentleman's dress. In France the court of Louis XIV set the fashion of silk stockings, breeches, and brocaded coats.As the long trailing rapier was unsuited to this form of dress, fashion decreed the wearing of a light, short court sword. The French style set in throughout Europe as the Italian had done earlier" (op. cit.). Cf. Vigeant p. 125; cf. Willems 302. Copper engraving by Nicolas Petri Lastman. Very good condition apart from a few skillfully repaired losses in the margins and several tears in the top margin.

Internally toned, but clean and unmarked.Rodrigo de Castro (1546-1627) was a Marrano doctor who fled the Inquisition and settled in Hamburg.

        Unpublished archive of 56 royal decrees signed by Philip III and Philip IV (some with a stamp) to the Audiencia of Guatemala. Manuscripts on paper, in Spanish.

      Signed at Valladolid, Madrid, San Lorenzo, etc., , @18 May 1600 to 15 June 1628. - Written in ink, in a variety of small, even, very legible hands. Folio (30.2 x 21 cm.), 99 leaves carefully removed from a bound volume and now stored in mylar sleeves in a blue cloth slipcase with 2 black leather spine labels. In very good condition. ---- The documents represent a remarkable, unpublished source for the history of the High Court of Guatemala during the first quarter of the seventeenth century, covering such subjects as the conquest and pacification of Indians in Honduras, granting of @encomiendas, diversion of royal monies, establishment of missions and convents, and disciplining of politically active priests. Through them we find out what the "local customs" of patronage and of usurpation of royal prerogative were. Through the reiteration of previously issued decrees we discover which decrees the court was ignoring, using the famous doctrine of "obedezco pero no cumplo." Through these decrees we glimpse royal patronage and royal displeasure.The broad categories are requests for information, demands for action, and orders ending existing practices. An example of the Crown's requests for information is a decree of 4 December 1601. The king sometimes received complaints that were best handled extra-judicially, often involving political activities of clerics, over whom the civil and criminal courts did not have jurisdiction and with whom, the authorities felt, the ecclesiastical courts would deal ineffectively. In one case, the governor of Honduras complained to the king that the dean of the church in Comayagua was disrupting attempts to recruit men for the defense of the port of Trujillo. The king expected that the @audiencia's information would be unbiased because of its physical and emotional distance from the local politics and squabbling in Honduras.An example of the Crown's demands for action is an ominous inquiry handed down on 28 June 1621. The king had "discovered" that "foreigners" were living in the New World. Since they were there illegally, he demanded a list of them and inventories of their possessions and land holdings. This was the beginning of the oppression of Portuguese settlers who had moved to the New World during the "Babylonian Captivity" of Portugal by Spain. Usually, however, the royal demands for action were grants of royal patronage or largesse, such as the order dated 10 July 1600, requiring the @audiencia to administer the terms of Philip's decree granting money to the cathedral in Santiago. On 4 July 1601, he ordered the court to give a chalice and bell to the mission church in Trindad de Sonsanate.The Crown was fully aware that the distance between it and its New World provinces would result in the development of local customs and practices. To a large extent, it tolerated these deviations. For example, on 31 May 1600, Philip accepted the @audiencia's appointment of the majordomo of the Royal Hospital. At other times, however, the Crown ordered the end of "local practices": on 12 December 1619, the king ordered the @audiencia to stop subdividing @encomiendas and parceling the subsections out as parts of government pensions.According to Clarence Haring (dean of American scholars of colonial Latin America in the 1940s-1950s), the @audiencia (high court) was "the most important and interesting institution in the government of the Spanish Indies." It was, he notes, "the center, the core, of the administrative system, the principal curb upon oppression and illegality of the viceroys and other governors." The first @audiencia was established in 1508 in Santo Domingo. Others sprang up as the Spaniards explored and settled the Americas. The Audiencia of Guatemala, which came into existence on 20 November 1542, through the New Laws, had a troubled and peripatetic beginning. The present collection documents various unstudied aspects of the presidencies of Dr. Alonso Criado de Castilla (1598-1611), D. Antonio Pérez Ayala Castilla y Rojas (1611-26) and Dr. Diego de Acuña (1626-33). More detaile [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Quaestionum Peripateticarum Lib. V... Daemonum investigatio peripatetica... Secunda editio. Quaestionum Medicarum Libri Libri II. De Medicament. facultatibus Lib. II... Nunc primum editi.

      Second, enlarged and more important, edition of this famous book on which the claims for Andrea Cesalpino as the discoverer of the circulation of the blood have been based.The Peripateticarum Quaestionum was his first published book; in it he was a follower of Aristotle rather than Galen, although he partially reformulated the former?s theories. ?Cesalpino?s most important medical studies concern the anatomy and physiology of the movement of the blood. He gave a good description of the cardiac valves and of the pulmonary vessels connected to the heart, as well as of the minor blood circulation; he also recognized that the heart is the center of the circulation of the blood and accepted the existence of the traditional synanastomoses of the arteries with the veins. He did not, however, discover the major circulation (first demonstrated in 1628 by William Harvey)? (DSB). ?No-one who reads Cesalpino impartially can deny the eminent part that he played in the discovery of the circulation of the blood? (Castiglioni, p. 438). Cesalpino was the first to use here the expression circulatio sanguinis (circulation of the blood) in a scientific sense.This edition contains the Quaestionum Medicarum and the De Medicamentorum Facultatibus for the first time. The former is important for recording the results of tying a vein and the first published statement concerning the centripetal flow in veins (on f. 234).G&M 756 (this edition), and see 755 for the first edition of 1571.

        Panegirico genealogico y moral del Excelent@mo. Duque de Barcelos.

      Lisbon, Por Pedro Craesbeeck, 1628. - Woodcut arms of the Duque de Barcelos on title, woodcut initials. (4), 68 ll. 4°, old (late seventeenth century [?], early eighteenth century [?]) calf (wear to corners, upper corner of front cover defective; head of spine somewhat defective), plain almost flat spine, with sewing bands slightly visable, covers richly tooled in gilt (some gilding rubbed), and with some tooling painted but severly rubbed), text block edges sprinkled red. Light dampstaining, mostly very small and limited to upper margins of a few leaves. Overall in very good to fine condition, in an unusual binding. Ink inscription in upper outer corner of front free endleaf: "Custou-me 600 reis // 20/10/[17?]78." ---- Rare FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this important genealogy of two of Portugal's wealthiest and most powerful families: the noble family of Barcelos, and its offshoot, the royal family of Bragança, which was to rule Portugal continuously from 1640 until 1910. In this work Alvia de Castro traces the lineage of the Condes de Barcelos (a title created in 1298) back to the early Christian kings of Castille and Navarre. He also describes the fortuitous unions which commingled Barcelos blood with that of the royal houses of Spain and Portugal: the third Conde de Barcelos, for instance, was the illegitimate son of D. Dinis; and the eighth Conde (and first Duque de Bragança) was the legitimized son of D. João I.Alvia de Castro states in the dedication that he wrote this work "en muestras de mi inclinacion a su grandeça," and the @Panegirico passed the scrutiny of the censors in Lisbon and Madrid. In hindsight, however, this is a rather subversive work: it justifies the claim of the author's patron, D. João (1604-1658), Duque de Barcelos, to the Portuguese throne. The previous royal line had been extinguished upon the death of D. Sebastião at the disastrous battle of Alcácer Quibir in 1578, and Portugal was now under Spanish dominion. D. João succeeded his father as eighth Duque de Bragança in 1630 and, in 1640, was proclaimed King João IV of Portugal.Born in Logroño, Alvia de Castro (1572-1640?), a knight of Calatrava, served as inspector-general of the Spanish royal armada and of Spanish naval and military forces in Portugal. While in Portugal he also published several other works, including a collection of military and political aphorisms (1621) and the @Memorial y discurso politico por la muy noble, y muy leal ciudad de Logroño (1633).---- Arouca C304.

      London: Printed for Nicholas Bourne, 1628.. [4],108pp. plus folding map. Frontispiece portrait. Modern brown morocco, gilt, by Aquarius, spine gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Frontispiece portrait trimmed outside original plate mark, expertly inlaid in larger sheet. Folding map fine. Minor expert marginal paper repairs. Paper loss on upper right corner of leaf I3 affecting a few letters of text, also expertly repaired. Overall a very nice, large copy. The first edition of one of the most important works in the history of exploration, the narrative of Sir Francis Drake's famous circumnavigation of the world in 1577-80, the first detailed account of the voyage to be published. The present copy is complete with the portrait of Drake and the highly important map of the world, usually lacking. Drake's circumnavigation, the second successful voyage around the world (the first being Magellan's expedition), extended British maritime power into the Pacific for the first time, threatened the Spanish empire in America to its heart, opened a new age in British seamanship, and made Drake a rich man. Sailing from Plymouth in December 1577, the expedition reached Patagonia in June 1578, weathered a near mutiny, and saw the second ship, the Elizabeth, turn back during the stormy passage of the Straits of Magellan. Drake sailed on alone in the Golden Hind, raiding Spanish commerce along the Pacific coast of the Americas and culminating his piracy with the seizure of a major treasure galleon. This exploit allowed him to pay a 4600% dividend to his backers on returning to England. In 1579 he explored northward up the California coast, discovered San Francisco Bay, and went as far north as Vancouver. He then crossed the Pacific, took on a cargo of spices in the East Indies, and went home by the Cape of Good Hope, arriving back at Plymouth in September 1580. It was the most heroic feat of seamanship of the age. For reasons of secrecy and diplomacy, the story of the voyage was kept veiled at the time, with brief accounts appearing much later in the works of Hakluyt and De Bry. This version, the first really detailed account, did not appear until after the death of James I. It is largely based on the narrative of the chaplain of the voyage, Francis Fletcher, but with considerable editorial additions and deletions, probably by Drake's nephew and heir. The portrait of Drake which appears here, showing him facing to the right, his arm over a globe and navigational instruments by him on a table, appears in two issues, one with the verses below the portrait in English, the other in Latin. Present is the Latin version (there is no known priority). The double hemisphere map of the world is of great interest and importance. Entitled "A New and Accurate Mappe of the World, Drawne According to the Best and Latest Discoveries That Have Been Made," it was engraved by Robert Vaughan. The margins contain various decorative figures and the portraits of circumnavigators Drake, Magellan, Cavendish, and Noort. A caption notes of the Straits of Magellan: "Twice in our age hath these straits been passed by Englishmen, the first was Sir Francis Drake Ano. 1578 the second by Mr. Thomas Cavendish in the year 1586." Kraus notes there are two issues of the map, one with the engraved caption "Fol. 61" in the upper left corner, the other without. The present copy is the latter issue, probably the second, since the erased "Fol. 61" from the plate can still be seen faintly (see Kraus page 84 for a reproduction of this map). A book of the greatest possible importance and rarity, one of the great classics of the Age of Discovery. CHURCH 413. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 628/37. JCB II(1):214. SABIN 20853. KRAUS, DRAKE 42.

        Plate from 'Academie de l'Espee'

      [Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir 1628 - A fine hand-coloured print from the most sumptuous book on fencing ever produced, which combines a strong design sense with beauty and historical importance, executed by one of the greatest engravers of the day. The image illustrates Thibault's theories of successful fencing using movement and mathematical principles. Thibault's work was produced during a period when the Italian rapier (or epee) held sway. "The Italians discovered the effectiveness of the dexterous use of the point rather than the edge of the sword. By the end of the 16th century, their lighter weapon.and simple, nimble, and controlled fencing style, emphasizing skill and speed rather than force, spread throughout Europe. Most of the wrestling tricks [used in earlier disciplines] were abandoned, the lunge was discovered, and fencing became established as an art" ( Encyclopaedia Britannica ). The present image marks the zenith of the use of the epee in Europe. "In the latter half of the 17th century, the sword and swordsmanship changed dramatically with a change in gentleman's dress. In France the court of Louis XIV set the fashion of silk stockings, breeches, and brocaded coats.As the long trailing rapier was unsuited to this form of dress, fashion decreed the wearing of a light, short court sword. The French style set in throughout Europe as the Italian had done earlier" (op. cit.). Cf. Vigeant p. 125; cf. Willems 302. Copper engraving, coloured by hand, by Egbert van Panderen. (Occasional small marginal tears).

Modern calf, gilt-lettered spine. Browned as usual, minor marginal dampstaining, small marginal wormhole, but otherwise very good. Signature of Samuel Horsley (1733-1806), Bishop of St. Asaph, on the title and a very few marginal notes, and corrections probably his.</p><p>First Continental Edition of Gilbert&#146;s De Magnete, originally published in London in 1600. &#147;One of the earliest monographs devoted to a particular branch of terrestrial physics, and one of the first published reports of an extensive series of linked, reconfirmed experiments&#148; (Heilbron, Electricity in the 17th and 18th Centuries, p. 169). The Sedini edition, printed in the Duchy of Pomerania, was prepared by Wolfgang Lochmann (1594-1643) and is extremely rare, much more so than the first edition. The large woodcuts of the first edition are here printed as copperplates, and the text was revised and enlarged. There are three issues of the Sedini edition: one with engraved title, the lower vignette showing a magnetic compass trailing after a ship (as in our copy); one with this vignette showing the compass on board ship; and one with printed title only. Roller notes that some examples have &#147;Authoris&#148; on the engraved title in the place of &#147;Ioh: Hallervordij,&#148; indicating that Lochmann apparently remaindered the sheets to Johann Hallervord, a well-known book dealer in the German city of Rostock. This copy once belonged to Samuel Horsley, Bishop of St. Asaph and a fellow of the Royal Society; Horsley was particularly interested in astronomical and geometrical science, and published an edition of Newton&#146;s Opera (1779-85) with his commentary.

      - Por la viuva de Alonso Martin, Madrid, 1628. De 6+ 178pp.+ 4. 19,7cm. Enc. "One of the most cultured Spaniards of his time, Tamaio de Vargas held the position of chronicler to the King of Spain. He left numerous works, among them this history of the restoration of Bahia. The author certainly had no lack of printed document and manuscript accounts from which to collect information for this book. The great Spanish victory caused the appearance of many signed and anonymous accounts (see Relação in this bibliography), apart from the writings of Bartolomeu Guerreiro, Fadrique de Toledo, Rodrigues de Burgos, Medeiros Corrêa, etc. (see under these names). Tamaio de Vargas states that he used a narrative "de mano del Maestro de Campo J. Vincencio Sanfelische Conde de Bagnolo" which was unprinted. It is probable that he also used another manuscript by D. Juan de Valencia y Gusman which was not printed. The Restauracion de la ciudad de Salvador has for a long time been a rare book. There are copies to which a view of Bahia has been added which does not form part of the work"; Reference from Bibliografia Brasilaina, Borba de Moraes, p. 845.

Seven vignettes or head and tail pieces. Two decorated initials. Roughened edges. Ink notations on cover and scholarly marginalia and underlinings throughout. After the parliament of 1628 was prorogued, King Charles I attempted to interpret its proceedings to the public in this interesting piece of 17th century royal propaganda. The document appeals to the public to support their king, though Charles believed his rule to be divinely ordained and did his best to govern and even levy taxes without consent of parliament. In the end, his stubbornness in these matters would have disastrous results for both England and himself.

      Antverpiae, typis Henrici Aertssenii, 1628. - in-16. 15ff. 456pp. 2ff. Plein vélin ivoire du temps. Seconde édition de ce fameux livre d'emblèmes, habituellement illustré en taille-douce et qui fut illustré ici, pour la première fois, au moyen de gravures sur bois.

Exemplaire portant une inscription manuscrite ancienne: "Hic liber ad me pertinet Barentz" il s'agit peut-être du peintre hollandais Michiel Barentsz qui fut peintre et graveur à l'eau-forte à Amsterdam entre 1625 et 1651 (cf. Benezit). Trace de cachet ancien découpée dans l'angle du titre. Nombreuses inscriptions manuscrites sur les feuillets de garde. Très beau tirage des gravures. Landwehr, 346.
