Chinchon, Conde de (i.e., Luis Jerónimo Fernández de Cabrera y Bobadilla)
Odon [Spain]: No publisher/printer, 1628. Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [6] ff. In 1628 the Conde de Chinchon had just finished serving as the Treasurer General of the Consejo de Aragon and was preparing to travel to Peru to be the viceroy and captain general of that New World region. He served in that role from 1629 to 1639. The Count had extensive land, business, and political matters that had to be overseen while he was in Southern Hemisphere, and in this printed form => specifically printed for him he gives his power of attorney to Jose de Carvajal Agurto, "my secretary"; Juan de Olabarria, "my accountant"; and Juan de Alderete. They are empowered to administer his estates, collect rents, and to do "other diverse things." Considerable detail is given concerning the extent of their power, including appearing in his stead before courts and councils, dealing with lawyers, agents, and the clergy, and much more. => Never before have we seen a power of attorney printed specifically for a newly appointed viceroy and specifically stating that he needs it because he is to be a viceroy in the New World. Signed by several witnesses and with the Count's paraph. Bound in half cordovan morocco with marbled paper sides. Light waterstaining at edges and along center fold.

Rodrigo a Castro
Bibliopolio Frobbeniano, 1628-01-01. 3rd. Hardcover. Very Good. Third edition. Quarto. [24], 226, [22]; [4], 541, [41] pp, folding table. Contemporary vellum, yapp style edges, ink title. Soiling to vellum. Internally generally sound. Minor toning, scattered foxing. <br><br> Rodrigo de Castro (1546-1627) was a Marrano doctor who fled the Inquisition and settled in Hamburg. Friedenwald ('Jewish Luminaries in Medical History', pp 54-56) calls him "one of the foremost physicians in establishing gynaecology in the Renaissance period". The first part of this extensive work treats female anatomy, conception, obstetrics and breast-milk; the second part, describing female diseases, has a section on pregnant women. References: Krivatsky 2287. EJ V, 244. Wellcome II 312. <br><br>Provenance: Contemporary signature of Olaus Rigelius. From the library of Alfonso Cassuto, a noted collector of books authored by Iberian Jews. Cassuto's book plate on front paste down. An interesting thought is the impact of the loss of men like Castro on Spain and Portugal and its connection to the downfall of Iberian power in the forthcoming centuries.

Jarric, Pierre du
A remarkable source of information on Jesuits exploits in India, China & Brazil. 1628. Arras. G. Bauduin. In 12mo (168 mm x 102 mm). 5 ff. + 977 (i.e. 975) + 26 ff. Recent flexible vellum. A very fresh, crisp and clean copy, with minor toning to a few folios, else fine. Third edition of the second part, the only part to be reprinted separately, thus complete ?as this edition does not contain any other parts. First published as a part of Jarric?s ?Histoire des choses memorables advenuestant les Indes Orientales, que autres país de la decouverte des Portugais?, 1610 and the portion the most information on Brazil. This part is mainly based don Luiz de Guzman and deals with Africa, Brazil, India & China and so it constitutes a valuable and early source of information. ?Father du Jarric?s work, in spite of being a compilation (mostly from Fernao Guerreiro, Relacam Anual) is very valuable for the study of the Jesuits in Brazil [making a reference that it is indeed the second part that contains the most references on Brazil]?. Du Jarric (1566 ? 1617) was a French Jesuit Priest; although he never actually got to travel and perform missionary labour himself, he advocated to the narration of the travels of his fellow churchmen, mainly those of the Society of Jesus. The work contains an array of ?mainly- voyages and relations to and from Portuguese domains. Borba de Moraes, 426 (ref.). De Backer ? Sommervogel, IV, 751. Sabin, 35790.

Rara raccolta del 1628 delle principali opere di Pierre Matthieu (1563-1621) scrittore, poeta, drammaturgo e storiografo tradotte da diversi autori.

Sette opere sono scritte da Matthieu, solo una "De gli Stati di Francia et della lor possanza" è di Matteo Zampini (1519-1600). Quest'ultima è un'indagine storica sulle origini e natura degli stati e pone in relazione il loro potere con il potere regale. Lo scritto ebbe un notevole successo al tempo ed una certa influenza sul pensiero politico. La prima opera, prima traduzione italiana, descrive la vita di Luigi XI di Francia (1423-1483). La seconda è una sorta di dizionario di scienza politica dalle cui voci trarre una generale lezione di moralità. La terza è la descrizione della guerra fra Francia e Spagna fino alla Pace di Veruins (1598). La quarta è una genealogia della Reale Casa Borbone dal Re Faramondo sino ad Enrico IV. La sesta e settima descrivono la vita ed imprese eroiche di Enrico IV re di Francia e Navarra (1553-1610).

Chinchon, Conde de (i.e., Luis Jerónimo Fernández de Cabrera y Bobadilla).
No publisher/printer. In 1628 the Conde de Chinchon had just finished serving as the Treasurer General of the Consejo de Aragon and was preparing to travel to Peru to be the viceroy and captain general of that New World region. He served in that role from 1629 to 1639. The Count had extensive land, business, and political matters that had to be overseen while he was in Southern Hemisphere, and in this printed form => specifically printed for him he gives his power of attorney to Jose de Carvajal Agurto, "my secretary"; Juan de Olabarria, "my accountant"; and Juan de Alderete. They are empowered to administer his estates, collect rents, and to do "other diverse things." Considerable detail is given concerning the extent of their power, including appearing in his stead before courts and councils, dealing with lawyers, agents, and the clergy, and much more. => Never before have we seen a power of attorney printed specifically for a newly appointed viceroy and specifically stating that he needs it because he is to be a viceroy in the New World. Signed by several witnesses and with the Count's paraph.

CASTELLI, Benedetto [FERMAT]
Very rare first edition in French of two works which founded the modern science of hydraulics, and including <b>an original contribution by Fermat</b> which appears here for the first time. Only one other scientific work of Fermat was published in his lifetime (see below).<br/><br/> The first work is a translation of <i>Demostrazioni geometriche della misura dell'acque correnti</i> (1628). "Castelli's work is considered one of the cornerstones of modern hydraulics, and its importance is such that he is often claimed to have been the founder of the Italian hydraulics school. This treatise on the speed of liquids in channels and on the measurement of that speed is the first to enunciate the well-known theorem in hydraulics known by the author's name. Castelli proposed the first accurate and effective methods for measuring the volume of moving water. This fundamental step in hydraulic mechanics and engineering was accomplished by the geometric method of using the cross-sections of a river to measure the volume. He also discusses the relation of velocity and head-in flow through an orifice. Castelli's work is quoted by almost every major survey of hydraulics..." (Roberts & Trent, p. 66). <br/><br/> The present French translation of Castelli's work has a lengthy preface, 'a messeigneurs les commissaires... pour la jonction des mers,' signed by Saporta, on the great scheme (actually carried out under Louis XIV) to join the Mediterranean to the Atlantic by means of a canal joining the Garonne river to the Etang de Thau in the south, the famous Canal du Midi.

Five volumes bound in one (with the Concordance bound between the OT and NT). Later gilt paneled mottled calf, gilt spine label, marbled endsheets, to contemporary style. Bookplate of Joseph Yates, Clanna House. Trimmed rather close throughout, frequently costing register and/or page numbers, some head lines and a few catchwords; some scattered loss of some bottom lines late in the N.T., early ink inscription on first title, small discoloration to first several leaves, stain to lower fore-corners of 2M8 and 2N1, some occasional foxing, soiling and minor spotting, lacking A1 (blank) to BoCP; withal, a reasonably good gathering, neatly bound. An uncommon lot, including the first complete King James Bible printed in Scotland, and the first Edinburgh edition of the Book of Common Prayer. The Bible follows a separate printing of the New Testament in 1628. This edition, it is suggested, was printed in connection with the Coronation of Charles I in Edinburgh in June 1633. Some copies of this printing of the NT were accompanied by plates, but these were later additions (ca. 1638), and there are two settings of some of the sheets, which are frequently comingled. In this copy, the catchword at 3G1 is 'But'; 2F6v has the reading 'carkases'; the catchword at 3G1r is '37 But'; and the headline on 3K3r is 'Of Widows'.

Contemporary limp vellum, yapp fore-edges, original free endpapers (expertly recased with modern vellum preserving the original spine and covers, vellum ties renews, endpapers renewed). Provenance: early signature partially obscured on title-page and scholarly notes on verso of original free endpaper; with John Howell, bookseller. THE EARLIEST COMPREHENSIVE ACCOUNT OF TIBET First edition, and AN ATTRACTIVE COPY. Da Veiga was a Jesuit missionary principally in Ethiopia, and the first two sections of this book discuss the activities of the Jesuits in that country. In the third section, entitled "Das Covsas do Reyno do Gram Thybet, a que chamam Catayo, que de nono socederam nos Annos de 625. & 626". da Veiga recounts in five chapters how he accompanied Antonio de Andrade on his second journey into Tibet in 1625 to establish a permanent mission. Veiga includes an account of Andrade's first journey into Tibet from India in August of 1624, the first by any European to reach Tibet, and goes into great detail about their expedition, their work at Tsaparang, and negotiations with local lamas and the Tibetan religion. Geographically and politically inaccessible, Tibet was for many centuries a mystery to European explorers, the subject of myth and legend and persistent rumor that beyond the Himalayan mountains lay secluded Christian communities, the remnants of early evangelizing missions.

Francesco Corbelletti., Rome, 1628. 8vo (6 x 3 3/4 in.; 15.2 x 9.5 cm). Woodcut Jesuit device on title-page, woodcut initials, without the errata leaf as common; first few leaves lightly browned. Old vellum over paste-board, yapp edges. EARLY EUROPEAN EXPLORATION OF TIBET. First Italian edition, and AN ATTRACTIVE COPY. Dated Caparangue, (i.e. Tsaparang), August 15th, 1626, the first of the two letters printed in this small volume recounts Andrade's second visit to Tibet between 1625 and 1626. Born in the small town of Oleiros, Portugal, in 1580, Andrade entered the order of the Society of Jesus in 1596. Between 1600 and 1624 he was the Jesuit's chief missionary in the Indies, establishing a permanent mission in Agra. His greatest triumph for the church and for the history of exploration was undoubtedly his "discovery" of Tibet in 1624. Geographically and politically inaccessible, Tibet was for many centuries a mystery to European explorers, the subject of myth and legend and persistent rumor that beyond the Himalayan mountains lay secluded Christian communities, the remnants of early evangelizing missions. Andrade and his companion, Manuel Marques, began their long and arduous journey from Agra in the company of pilgrims in March of 1624. Reaching Delhi they donned Hindu disguises and travelled through the valley of Ganges to Hardwar "the Gate of Vishnu", to Srinagar in Garhwal, Badrinath and finally through the perilous Mana Pass to Tsaparang in August. They soon discovered that the rumours of Christian communities were untrue and they were treated with great kindness by t … [Click Below for Full Description]
