[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]

THIBAULT, Girard - Andries Jacobsz STOCK (1580-1648)
[Leiden: B. & A. Elzevir: 1628]. Copper engraving by Andries Jacobsz Stock. Very good condition apart from several skillfully repaired small losses and tears in the margins. 19 x 27 1/2 inches. 21 x 29 3/8 inches. 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 … [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 indepen … [Click Below for Full Description]

De BRY, Johann Theodore (1560-1623) and Johann Israel de Bry (1565-1609).
Caspar Rötel for Wilhelm Fitzer, Frankfurt, 1628. Part XII of "The Small Voyages", Folio (11 1/2 x 7 1/2 in.; 29.2 x 19 cm.). Engraved title-page and four engravings in the text; lacking the engraved map of China, browned, some leaves close-cropped affecting some headlines. 20th-century marbled paper wrappers. EXCEPTIONALLY RARE FIRST AND ONLY GERMAN EDITION of this part of De Bry's "Small Voyages,". Devoted to the Near and Far East, China and the activities of the Dutch in Asia, and including illustrations of naval warfare, monkey-like beasts offering tokens of Christianity to native chiefs, Chinese people making offerings to their gods, and worshiping devilish beasts. Inspired by a meeting with the celebrated Richard Hakluyt in London in 1587, de Bry published the first of his own collection of voyages relating to the Americas in 1590: Hariot's account of Virginia. In order to maximize profit he had editions published in English, Latin, French and German. He went on to publish five further parts before his death in 1598, when his sons Johann Theodor and Johann Israel took over the task of completing the "Great Voyages" and began the "Small Voyages", an oeuvre which eventually stretched to 25 volumes published over forty-five years.

GUATEMALA, Audiencia de los Confines.]
Signed at Valladolid, Madrid, San Lorenzo, etc., @, 18 May 1600 to 15 June 1628. 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. Written in ink, in a variety of small, even, very legible hands. 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 de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very good condition apart from some mild creasing and a small orange spot in the lower right side of the image near the plate number. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
