One of the rarest works on Drake, describing his Caribbean raid of 1572 The second edition, after the first of 1626, of this account of Francis Drake's highly successful raid against the Spanish in Panama in 1572-73, one of his early Caribbean raids of plunder and harassment. Sabin states of this edition: "It differs from that of 1626 in having had the advantage of the incorporation of the errata of the latter date under the personal superintendence of the nephew of the great voyager. The last four leaves are larger than the rest of the book." The expedition of fifty-two Englishmen attempted to seize Nombre de Dios, but were repulsed when Drake was wounded in the shoulder. After many reversals and hardships, the British managed to waylay an entire pack train of Peruvian silver, bringing home a fortune. Drake's bold move was approved by Queen Elizabeth, who shared in the plunder, but the politics of his raid on Spain during a period of ostensible pea … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALERIANO CASTIGLIONE
In 16. Dim. 15x9 cm. Pp. 225. Edizione originale del 1628 di questa nota opera politica scritta da Valeriano Castiglione (1593-1663) appartenente all'antico casato dei Castiglioni, letterato ed accademico. L'opera è un trattato di precetti politici importantissimo per il pensiero politico del seicento. Fu questo saggio a dare maggiore fama all'autore, da allora considerato il primo trattatista politico del suo tempo. Il saggio aveva lo scopo di insegnare ai principi cattolici la ragion di stato cristiana contro le cattive ragioni di Stato di Machiavelli e Bodin. Il modello dello statista per Castiglione era rappresentato da Emanuele I di Savoia, a tal punto che i contemporanei lo accusarono di aver fatto da prestanome per la stesura dell'opera e che in realtà l'autore fosse proprio il Savoia. L'opera si articola in una serie di cinquanta massime che vengono esposte nell'opera, tra le quali: il principe sia considerato nel maritarsi, nel lasciarsi dominare dalle donne, conservi al sua reputazione, non sia crudele, castighi i delitti, non offenda i sudditi, non permetta che il fisco sia rigoroso, sia benefico verso i poveri, si avvertito circa le insidie del veleno, distrugga i fuoriusciti, bandisca i duelli, permetta ai sudditi gli spettacoli ecc... Bella xilografia rappresentante il giglio fiorentino al frontespizio. Collazionato e risultato completo. Alto valore. Copertina in mezza pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso; pergamena applicata su cartoncino ottocentesco. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stevini, Simonis [ Simon Stevin ]. Danielis Schwenters, editor and contributor
Nürnberg: Simon Halbmayer, 1628. Vellum bound First German edition of a Dutch work published earlier in Stevin's Wisconstige Gedachtnissen (Complete Works) (1605-08) Very Good Duodecimo. 2 complementary works bound in one volume. Contemporary vellum over boards. Slight wear to edges and corners. Many pages have foxing, more so in the pages of the Axiomata. A few pages have very slight tears at foredge. A small rectangle has been cut from the lower corner of the first free endpaper. Binding has a small nick at foredge of back board. Vellum slightly scuffed. with light soiling. [24]154 [10], [182] p. Large printer's device on last page. Many simple geometrical woodcut illustrations, primarily of triangles. Contains the first 2 parts of Stevin's work on trigonometry translated into German from the original Dutch, with 4 axioms (Pitisci Axiomata) from Bartolomeo Pitiscus added by Schwenters in his forward. The second part of the book is a work consisting of tables for sine, tangent and secant added by Schwenters. The work does not include the 3rd part of Stevin's Trigonometry, which covered spherical triangles - indeed, Schwenters states Stevin did no writing in this area, which is incorrect. The original edition of this work is titled "Driehouckhandel". The translator for this work is unknown and was perhaps Schwenter himself, but appears not have had access to a complete copy. (Struick, Principle Works of Simon Stevin, II B p. 755). Less desirable than Dutch editions but still a scarce work on Trigonometry by one of the more important mathematicians of the early Dutch indepe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Considerabile un passivo rifacimento dell’innovativo modello iniziale che lo stesso Mercator realizzò nel 1589, ne conserva la nuova impostazione con proiezione mercatoriana, ma anche gli errori e le imprecisioni che verranno riportati anche nelle carte successive. Si trova in "Atlas minor Gerardi Mercatoris. Typis Jean Janssonius", l’incisore è Petrus Kaerius. Scheda bibliografica tratta da "Il territorio trentino-tirolese nell’antica cartografia" di Gino Tomasi, scheda n. 21. \r Formato: Incisione su rame di dimensioni 12,5x17,5 cm. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo. Lievi bruniture ai margini.

THIBAULT, Girard - [?Simon Van de PASSE (1595-1647)]
[Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir, 1628. Copper engraving by ?Simon Van der Passe. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a small loss in the top margin. 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. 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.

[WINE] [S.V.]
1628. Rare first edition of this anti-Semitic broadsheet, a derisive attack on the perceived Jewish monopoly on the German wine industry during the Thirty Years War. A wealthy, Janus-headed merchant rides on a large wine barrel wagon, driven by a devil straight towards Hell’s flaming maw. Identified as Jewish by the circular patch on his jersey which Jews were required by law to wear in Germany, as well as the caricatured facial features, the figure draws on the iconographic tradition of Bacchus as well as the subversive mockery of Carneval parades. The rich allegory is reinforced by 20 Lutheran Biblical verses, many from the Old Testament, all aimed at depicting the prototypical Jewish wine merchant as a covetous and grasping profiteer for whom divine justice waits. The protagonist travels with vintner symbols including the watering-can helmet, weights and other measures, and a waving pennant with five wine-related icons, including the vintner’s horseshoe-shaped hoe and a siphon. While his bulging moneybags and fine clothing are clear signs of prosperity, the tally sticks and flaying knife in his left hand represent usury. With the terms “wine”, “brandy” and “vinegar” inscribed on his torso, he clearly controls all elements of the trade. His two faces are accompanied by the joint motto, “Lying in the barrel, lying in the countryside”, representing the double monopoly over both production and distribution. Although unsigned, the etching was most likely produced in the Rhine and Moselle region. One of the casks in the wine ce … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vellum bound First German edition of a Dutch work published earlier in Stevin's Wisconstige Gedachtnissen (Complete Works) (1605-08) Very Good Duodecimo. 2 complementary works bound in one volume. Contemporary vellum over boards. Slight wear to edges and corners. Many pages have foxing, more so in the pages of the Axiomata. A few pages have very slight tears at foredge. A small rectangle has been cut from the lower corner of the first free endpaper. Binding has a small nick at foredge of back board. Vellum slightly scuffed. with light soiling. [24]154 [10], [182] p. Large printer's device on last page. Many simple geometrical woodcut illustrations, primarily of triangles. Contains the first 2 parts of Stevin's work on trigonometry translated into German from the original Dutch, with 4 axioms (Pitisci Axiomata) from Bartolomeo Pitiscus added by Schwenters in his forward. The second part of the book is a work consisting of tables for sine, tangent and secant added by Schwenters. The work does not include the 3rd part of Stevin's Trigonometry, which covered spherical triangles - indeed, Schwenters states Stevin did no writing in this area, which is incorrect. The original edition of this work is titled "Driehouckhandel". The translator for this work is unknown and was perhaps Schwenter himself, but appears not have had access to a complete copy. (Struick, Principle Works of Simon Stevin, II B p. 755). Less desirable than Dutch editions but still a scarce work on Trigonometry by one of the more important mathematicians of the early Dutch indepen … [Click Below for Full Description]
