        [Babel] sive Discursus de confusione linguarum, tum orientalium: Hebraicae, Chaldaicae, Syriacae, Scripturae Samariticae, Arabicae, Persicae, Aethiopicae [...]. Nuremberg, Simon Halbmayer, 1629.

      1629. (16), 144, (4) pp. With woodcut printer's device on t. p., 3 full-page engravings in the text (including specimens of Arabic) and numerous ornamental woodcut initials and vignettes. - (Bound with) II: Hackspan, Theodor. Disputationum theologicarum & philologicarum sylloge [...]. Nuremberg, Johann Andreas Endter & Wolfgang Endter, 1663. (8), 616, (43) pp. T. p. in red and black. With several ornamental woodcut vignettes and head- and tailpieces. - (Bound with) III: Lipmann-Mühlhausen, Jom-Tob. Liber Nizachon Rabbi Lipmanni. Nuremberg, Wolfgang Endter, 1644. 4to. (14), 512, (24) pp. With additional engr., ill. t. p. Contemp. vellum with ms. title to spine. Nuremberg sammelband concerning problems of oriental philology and text exegesis, written or edited by notable Protestant scholars. - I: Early scientific work of comparative linguistics, comparing Hebrew, Arabic, Aramaic, Ethiopian, Latin, Greek, French, etc. in great detail regarding grammar, lexicon, and phonetic inventory. Christoph Crinesius (1584-1629), an orientalist from Bohemia and "well versed in the Hebrew, Chaldaic, and Syrian languages" (cf. Jöcher), had studied and taught at Wittenberg before becoming a preacher in Gschwendt. After the Protestants' eviction from Austria he became professor of theology in Altdorf; the present work was first published in two parts in Wittenberg in 1610. - II: Collection of theological and philological disputations by Hackspan, who is considered "next to Salomon Glass the most important Hebraist of his age. He also studied the Rabbis closely and made use of the knowledge thus gained for theology. Furthermore, he was familiar with the Arabic and Syrian language" (cf. ADB X, 299). After delivering an excellent disputation, Hackspan was made professor of oriental languages at Altdorf although he held no degree. - Numerous passages in Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, and Syrian type. - III: The first printed edition of the Sefer nizzachon, the major work of the great apologist and cabbalist Jom-Tov ben Salomo Lipmann of Mühlhausen (fl. after 1400). In this "Book of Victory", written before 1410, Lipmann attacks "central Christian teachings, especially Christian interpretations of individual Biblical passages [...] The work, which presupposes a thorough acquaintance with the New Testament, created a sensation among Christians and provoked the Brandenburg Bishop Stephan Bodecker to respond with a treatise of his own" (cf. Jüd. Lex. III, 1119). Edited by the distinguished orientalist Theodor Hackspan (1607-59), who had by a dramatic feat acquired the work theretofore existing only as a secret manuscript circulating among the Jewish community: "Hackspan visited with several students a Jew in Schnattach, with whom he had frequently spoken of the Nizzachon, but from whom he had never succeeded in obtaining it. During the visit he made the Jew so trustful that he showed him the Nizzachon, and while the students, as had been planned, ensnared the Jew in arguments and discourse, Hackspan seized his chance, got in a ready coach with the Nizzachon and left the Jew standing. As soon as he arrived at home with his booty he cut up the book, and Schnell, Blendinger, Frischmuth and other men well versed in the Rabbinic language had quickly to copy it so that one could return it to the Jew, who came for it the very next day. And through this fine deceit this evil book came into the Christians' hands and later into print" (cf. Will). - The Hebrew text (constituting the major part of the work) was printed in Altdorf, the Latin text (likewise paginated from right to left) in Nuremberg. The appendix contains numerous passages in Arabic. - With autogr. owner's mark "Ex libris Maresii" [probably Samuel Maresius (1599-1673, Gröningen theologian)] on flyleaf. Front pastedown with autogr. owner's mark of M. D. Winter [i. e. Magister David Winter (1643-99, Wittenberg philologist)] and Hebrew-Yiddish owner's mark "Ha-Sefer jehert [A]dolf Mobring [?]"; a few underlinings in the text. Slightly browned throughout. T. p. of II (Crinesius) expertly re-margined. Occasionally slightly waterstained, otherwise a good copy of the rare major work of the cabbalist Lipmann in a contemporary sammelband. I: Jöcher I, 2198. VD 17, 14:053983L. - II: VD 17, 12:123782K. Will, Nürnb. Gelehrten-Lex. II (DBA I 452, 385). - III: Steinschneider I, 1411: 5854, 1. VD 17, 23:270299X. Will, Nürnb. Gelehrten-Lex.

        Historia della venuta à Venetia occultamente nel 1177 di Papa Alessandro III e dela vittoria ottenuta da Sebastiano Ziani Doge.

      [Venice, Evangelista Deuchino]. 1629 - 4to. [4]f including title within elaborate engraved border + 344p. Some ornamental woodcut initials. Boards. First edition of the Venetian Benedictine monk's vivid account of the historic secret peace meeting of Pope Alexander III and the Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa held at Venice on 24th July 1177 in the presence of the incumbent Doge Sebastiano Ziano (1172-78)and of the resulting military advantages secured for the Republic. The lower panel of the engraved title page shows the Emperor kneeling before the Pope with the Doge standing on his right in the presence of bishops. The upper border incorporates portraits of St Peter and St Mark. Venice was part of the anti-imperial Lombard league of cities that defeated Frederick Barbarossa at Legnano (1176). The Emperor thus had to recognize the supremacy of the Papacy. The imprint is the last recorded from the press of the celebrated Venetian typographer Evangelista Deuchino. A good copy; right blank margin of first 3 leaves strengthened. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Oeuvres de N. Frenicle, conseiller du Roy et general en sa Cour des Monnayes.

      1629 13 parties en un volume in-8, demi-vélin blanc à la Bradel, dos lisse orné d'un petit fleuron central, titre et date calligraphiés à la plume (rel. du XIXe s.), (1) f. de titre, (6) p. de prélim., 268 p. et (1) f. de faux-titre, (6) p. de prélim., 172 p., (5) p. de table. Paris, Jean de Bordeaux, 1629. Première édition collective, partagée avec Toussainct du Bray, des oeuvres de Nicolas Frenicle, réunissant ses hymnes, élégies, sonnets et églogues. Conseiller à la cour des monnaies, l'auteur n'avait que 29 ans lorsqu'il publia ce recueil. Ami de Chapelain, Frenicle participa au groupe des "Illustres Bergers", compagnie littéraire constituée vers 1625 avec Guillaume Colletet, Jean Ogier de Gombauld, Louis Mauduit, Claude Malleville, Antoine Godeau, les frères Germain, Philippe Habert, etc. Ces jeunes gens, qui prirent modèle sur les héros de l'Astrée, se réunissaient pour cultiver la poésie dans les environs de Paris, sur les bords de la Seine. A la fois ouverts au classicisme naissant et sensibles à la spiritualité de la réforme, réunis par leur admiration pour Ronsard et Malherbe, ils s'efforçaient de concilier leur ferveur religieuse avec une littérature galante, voire gaillarde.Selon Lachèvre (cf. infra), Frenicle avait participé au Parnasse satyrique, et comme tel, fut incriminé en 1623 par le Parlement de Paris.Contient, parmi les pièces préliminaires, des pièces de L. Mauduit, J.-C. Villeneuve, C. Morin, A. Godeau, C. Malleville et Deslandes.La troisième partie ("Eglogues") figure sous page de titre et pagination particulières.(Arbour, Toussaint Du Bray', n°281.

François, & Jean le Verrier Prestre, domestiques du dit sieur de Bethencourt. Et Mise en lumiere par M. Galien de Bethencourt, Conseiller du Roy en sa Cour de Parlement de Rouen.

      A Paris, chez Jean de Heuqueville et Michel Soly, 1629. (Traicte de la Navigation) - A Paris, chez Michel Soly, 1630. (Decouverte des Canaries). 1629 2 vol. in-12° (170 x 112 mm.) de : I. [5] ff. (Titre, Sommaire de ce Traicte), 303 pp. ; II. [10] ff. (Titre, Epître de Bergeron, Préface, Privilège du Roy), 208 pp., [6] ff. (Table des matières). Portrait de Jean de Bethencourt par Balthasar Moncornet p. 5. (N.B. : Il fût imprimé sur des papiers de qualité différente, il s'agit pour cet exemplaire du papier le plus blanc et le plus fin). Plein veau moucheté aux armes de Louis Urbain Le Fèvre de Caumartin (1653-1720), un ami Voltaire, dos à cinq nerfs ornés, pièces de titre de maroquin rouge, filet d'encadrement à froid des plats, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches dorées sur marbrure. (Très petits trous de ver à la fin du premier vol., affectant quelques lettres, ainsi que sur une douzaine de pp. à la fin du second vol.) Bel exemplaire de cet Americana de toute rareté, bien complet de ses deux parties, unique édition de la toute première publication française consacrée à lhistoire des explorations maritimes. Ce remarquable ouvrage, aussi rare sur le marché que ses contemporains le « Champlain » et le « Lescarbot », est méconnu de nombreux bibliophiles : il nest ainsi passé en vente publique aux Etats Unis quune seule fois en 30 ans. Le première partie : « Le Traité des Navigations et des Voyages et découvertes », constitue un historique du monde de lexploration aux premiers temps des découvertes, surtout focalisé sur les périples des Français, réunis par léditeur Pierre Bergeron. Elle souvre sur une étude détaillée des différentes méthodes de navigation : compas, quadrant, longitudes se référant à Gilbert, Plancius et Stevin ainsi quà dautres sources anciennes. Des chapitres traitent en détail des expéditions en Nouvelle France du Sieur de Mont, Lescarbot, Poutrincourt, Champlain, Cartier, Alfonce... Sont aussi relatés les voyages français en Floride de Sebastien Gavot et Jean Ribaut ainsi que la funeste expédition de Laudonnière. Dautres explorateurs européens sont évoqués, notamment les plus connues des expéditions espagnoles, portugaises et anglaises, ainsi que celles des Russes, des Suédois et des Hollandais, aux Amériques mais aussi en Chine, au Japon, au Tibet et en Europe... Sont ainsi relatées les relations comme la découverte du Brésil, les explorations de Vespucci, et plus tard les expéditions de Villegagnon... Le second texte, qui relate la conquête des Canaries par Jean de Béthencourt, en 1402 [-22], fut rédigé par deux chapelains de la famille de ce dernier : Pierre Bontier et Jean le Verrier. Un des premiers illustres représentants de cette vaste famille d'origine normande aujourd'hui présente au Portugal, aux Açores et en Amérique du Sud, Jean de Béthencourt, originaire de Grainville en pays de Caux sembarqua en 1402 pour La Rochelle, puis lEspagne avant de cingler vers les Canaries avec deux navires. Louvrage relate dans le détail, par de courts chapitres, chaque étape et péripétie du voyage et de la conquête de larchipel par lintrépide aventurier. Un très joli portrait gravé de lexplorateur, avec son blason, fait face au premier chapitre et une large table analytique achève louvrage. Bien quoccasionnellement mentionné comme un travail séparé (notamment par Penrose and Borba de Moraes), il est évident que le "Traicté des Navigations", tant par son propos que par son contenu, est lié au premier ouvrage, lequel le mentionne expressément dans son titre. Provenance : Louis Urbain Le Fèvre de Caumartin ( blason doré sur les plats). Très bel exemplaire. 2 vols. 12mo. Jean de Bethencourt's portrait by Balthasar Moncornet. Full calf with the arms of Louis Urbain Le Fèvre de Caumartin (1653-1720). Fine copy of this scarce Americana, complete with the 2 parts and portrait, only edition of the very first French publication dealing with the history of maritime explorations. The texts of the first part were compiled by Pierre Bergeron: it's a wonderful history of world exploration at the age of discovery, concentrated on French' voyages. The second part, written by Pierre Bontier and Jean le Verrier, is an account of the conquest of the Canary Islands by Jean de Bethencourt. Rare, with a nice portrait. Borba de Moraes I, p. 87; Gagnon I, 1679 & 3556; JCB II, p. 219 & 227; Sabin 4850 & 5073.

        Nova Virginiae Tabula

      1629. La mappa ha la sua principale fonte nel primo stato dell'opera realizzata da Smith nel 1612, sebbene sia leggermente più larga e più finemente incisa. Il primo stato di questa lastra fu pubblicato da Hondius. Nel 1629 W. Blaeu acquistò la lastra di Hondius, ne cancellò il nome per sostituirlo con il suo, da cui il secondo stato. La mappa è conosciuta anche per la sua rappresentazione, in alto a destra, di Capo Powhatan, che agita la sua pipa mentre è seduto, come recita la didascalia, come quando il capitano John Smith veniva condotto da lui come prigioniero. Smith non era solito servirsi dell'assistenza dei nativi per aggiungere informazioni alle sue opera. Questa mappa della Virginia si impose come riferimento per le altre dell'epoca, fino alla pubblicazione dell'opera di Augustine Hermanns nel 1673. L'opera è una delle rappresentazioni più dettagliate della regione del Chesapeake, apprezzata dai collezionisti di mappe della zona. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, testo tedesco al verso, sporadiche fioriture, per il resto in otimo stato di conservazione. The map is based on the first state of Smith's map, 1612, and is slightly larger and more expertly engraved. The firts state of this plate was published by Hondius. In 1629 the Hondius plate was purchased by Blaeu who deleted Hondius' name and added his own to the imprint, constituting the second state. The map is, in part, famous for its depiction, upper left, of Chief Powhatan, waving his tobacco pipe, and seated, as the caption says, in state when Capt. John Smith was delivered to him prisoner. Smith was unusual among early mapmakers in acknowledging the assistance of native American informants. This map was the first widely disseminated version of the Smith map and therefore higly influential on other maps of the period and became the standard map of the region until Augustine Hermanns map of 1673. The map is one of the most detailed map of the Chesapeake region to date and is an essential map for collectors of this region. Copper plate, printed on contemporary laid paper, occasional foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Example from German edition of Blaeu's Atlas Amsterdam Amsterdam Burden 193 485 380

The text is the authoritative edition of Seneca's philosophical writings by the humanist and classical scholar Justus Lipsius (Joost Lips) (1547?1606), described by his admiring correspondent Michel de Montaigne as one of the most learned men of his day (Essays II.12), who is considered the founding father of Neostoicism. Lipsius intended to combine Stoicism and Christianity, producing a new philosophy that would help individuals to live through the difficult period of the religious wars and establishing constancy as the most important of the virtues.

        AUGSBURG IM 30-JÄHRIGEN KRIEG: BILDAUSSCHNITT NACH EINEM FLUGBLATT NACH DER EINNAHME AUGSBURGS DURCH KÖNIG GUSTAV II. ADOLF VON SCHWEDEN.

      - Satirisches Bild aus der 2. Hälfte des 17. Jrhs. nach einem Flugblatt („Die durch Gottes Gnad erledigte Stadt Augspurg") nach der Einnahme der Stadt Augsburg durch König Gustav II. Adolf von Schweden im Zuge des Dreißigjährigen Krieges. Das Bild zeigt im Hintergrund die Stadt Augsburg sowie in der Ferne Landshut, Freyburg, München, Würzburg und Main. Im Vordergrund liegen erschlagen auf dem Boden die monströse Gestalt eines siebenköpfigen, bekrönten Drachen und eines Widders mit Barett, unter dessen Schnauze ein Schriftstück mit der Inschrift „Ablas Pro Peccatis" zu sehen ist. In der typischen Position des Siegers steht, mit noch immer gezückten und wie zum letzten Streich ausgeholtem Schwert, die ritterliche Gestalt des schwedischen Königs Gustav II. Alfons. Ursprünglich war das Bild im Kontext eines Flugblattes mit dem Titel „Die durch Gottes Gnad erledigte Stadt Augspurg" und einer erklärenden Bildunterschrift verortet. Zum geschichtlichen Hintergrund des Flugblattes: Mit dem durch Kaiser Ferdinand 1629 erlassenen Restitutionsedikts hatte die Rekatholisierung des bikonfessionellen Augsburg begonnen, die mit erheblichen Restriktionen gegen die protestantische Bevölkerung verbunden gewesen ist. Während in Augsburg die Gegenreformation voranschritt, nahm der Krieg durch das Eingreifen des schwedischen Königs Gustav II. Adolf jedoch eine entscheidende Wende – nach dem 1. großen Sieg der Protestanten unter der Führung des schwedischen Königs, Breitenfelde, begann der Triumphzug Gustav II. Adolfs und seiner Armee durch Deutschland. Am 24. April 1631 erfolgte die Einnahme Augsburgs, das zum Symbol des unterdrückten Protestantismus in Süddeutschland geworden war. Gustav II. Adolf wurde in der protestantischen Propaganda als „Löwe aus Mitternacht" betitelt sowie als Verfechter der wahren Lehre und als Befreier der Protestanten aus ihrer papistischen Knechtschaft inszeniert (Lang 1974, S. 76 und S. 80). Deutlich wird dieser Blickwinkel auf den schwedischen König auch auf dem vorliegenden Kupferstich: DGustav II. Adolf wird als schlagmächtiger Rittersmann dargestellt, der die beiden monströsen apokalyptischen Schreckenswesen niedergeschlagen hat – es handelt sich um Allegorien der katholischen Schreckensherrschaft, wie auf einem vorhergehenden Stich (Blattnr. NVI) deutlich wird - die Augsburg und Umgebung kurz zuvor noch fest in ihrem Griff gehabt hatten. Das Schild „Ablas Pro Peccatis" weist auf den Ablashandel der katholischen Kirche hin, der durch die Protestanten abgelehnt wurde. Das Bild wurde ursprünglich für ein Flugblatt konzipiert, das mit dem Titel „Die durch Gottes Gnad erledigte Stadt Augspurg" und einer erklärenden Bildunterschrift zum politischen Hintergrund versehen war. Es gehörte weiterhin wohl zu einer mehreren Blätter umfassenden Reihe (Blattnr. NVII). Das vorhergehende Blatt (Blattnr. NVI), das wir ebenfalls führen, hat die Unterdrückung der Augsburger Protestanten durch das Restitutionsedikt von 1629 zum Thema. Die auf dem vorliegenden Blatt niedergeschlagenen apokalyptischen Wesen, thronen hier noch herrschend über die Stadt.

William Pemble c.1592-1623, was a puritan divine, born as a son of a clergyman. His father was poor, and his education was provided for by John Barker. After his graduation he removed to Magdalen Hall, where he became reader and tutor. He proceeded M.A. on 9 June 1618, took orders, and was made divinity reader of Magdalen Hall, a post which he filled with great distinction, being an able exponent of Calvinism, and famous as a preacher. He was loyal to the Anglican church, though anxious that the terms of conformity should be made easier to his party. His aquirements in various branches of learning were very remarkable. It would seem that his labours and studies exhausted his strenght and shortened his days. Pemble's works were all posthumous, edited and published by his friends.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Philosophia Magnetica, in qua Magnetis Natura penitus explicatur, et Omnium quae hoc Lapide cernuntur, causae propriae afferuntur.

      - Engraved title & several engravings & numerous woodcuts in the text. 8 p.l., 412, [12] pp. Folio, cont. half-sheep & marbled boards (minor worming towards end), spine gilt, black leather lettering piece on spine. Ferrara: F. Succius, 1629. First edition, Jesuit issue, and a very fine copy. "Perhaps the most significant discovery of the century following Gilbert was that of electrical repulsion. This effect seems first to have been noticed incidentally by Cabeus, who, in his Philosophia Magnetica (1629), describes how filings attracted by excited amber sometimes recoiled to a distance of several inches after making contact."–Wolf, A History of Science, Technology, and Philosophy, I, p. 303. Cabeo also relates his many experiments on the possibility of telegraphic communication by means of magnetized needles and gives the first picture of the sympathetic telegraph, an imaginary magnetic telegraph which sometimes appeared in early electrical literature, fancifully prefiguring the actual telegraph. It was supposed to operate by synchronous activation of two instruments with alphabetic dials whose needles had been magnetized by the same magnet. Cabeo (1586-1650), taught theology and mathematics in Parma for many years until he settled in Genoa where he taught mathematics. Handsome and large copy. There are three issues (no priority) of this book: the first issue has a royal coat-of-arms at the head of the title; the second issue has the coat-of-arms replaced by the Jesuit emblem; and the third was produced for export to Germany and has an added printed title with a Cologne imprint. ?

        Le Machine. Volume nuovo et di molto artificio da fare effetti maravigliosi

      tanto Spiritali quanto di Animale Operatione, arichito di bellissime figure con le dichiarationi a ciascuna di esse in lingua volgare e latina. All'Ill. monsignor Tiberio Cenci Vescovo di Iesi. Roma, ad istanza di Iacomo Manuci per Iacomo Mascardi, 1629, - in-4, 80 fogli complessivi in tre sezioni, numerate: (3), 1-40; 1-14; 1-23, leg. coeva in p. pelle, tassello e fregi oro al dorso. Titolo entro bordura architettonica figurata inc. in rame; illustrato da 77 tavole in silografia a piena pagina nel testo al recto di altrettanti fogli, di varie e interessanti macchine. Prima ed unica edizione di grande opera classica di tecnologia del Seicento, l'ultima della trattatistica rinascimentale. Il Branca (1571-1645) si segnalò in opere di architettura a Roma, a Loreto e Assisi, e la presente opera gli assicurò un posto di primo piano tra gli scrittori di trattati scientifici, precursori della tecnica meccanica moderna. Vi espone (fig. 25) la progenitrice delle moderne turbine a vapore ad azione, cioé l'applicazione della potenza espansiva della turbina. La grande rarità di questo libro è dovuta alla presente unica edizione data alle stampe ed alla sua scarsa diffusione, contrariamente a quanto avvenne per le opere analoghe di Zonca e Besson, che conobbero svariate edizioni in diverse lingue. Bell'esemplare, assai puro (lievissimo arrossamento uniforme della carta). Dibner, Heralds of Science 175. Riccardi I, 188-9: «Raro e ricercatissimo». Horblit 172. Wheeler Gift 96. Cultura delle macchine p. 46 e 90. Manca alla Hoover Coll. e al Cat.Vinciana. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Philosophia Magnetica, In Qua Magnetis Natura Penitus Explicatur. Et Omnium Quae Hoc Lapide cernuntur, causae propriae afferuntur .

      Johann Kinckius, Francesco Succi, Cologne and Ferrara: 1629 - 1 FIRST EDITION, COLOGNE ISSUE, OF THE FIRST WORK TO DISCUSS ELECTRICAL REPULSION, "PERHAPS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT DISCOVERY OF THE CENTURY FOLLOWING GILBERT." – WOLF. THE FIRST WORK TO DISCUSS ELECTRICAL REPULSION. "On p. 194 of this famous work of the great Italian Jesuit will be found the first recognition of electrical repulsion. Gilbert’s discoveries and theories are freely discussed, the latter often adversely. Sympathetic telegraphy disproved (page 301); magnetic field mapped out by iron filings; also diagrams of the magnetic (lover’s) telegraph. Cabeo opposed the views of Copernicus on astronomy, as well as those of Gilbert on terrestrial magnetism. Copies of this first edition are much sought after." – Wheeler Gift. "An important work on the loadstone. A curious chapter.institutes a comparison between electrical and magnetical attraction.The PHILOSOPHIA MAGNETICA is the second Latin book published on electricity." – Mottelay. The Cologne issue adds a new typographic title-page and resets the dedication leaf (conjugate leaf) beginning "Ludovico XIII" [see Wellcome description]. The Papal arms which were at the top of the engraved title-page are replaced with the Jesuit emblem and the last line of the title beginning with "multa quoque dicuntur." has been added. It seems fairly obvious that Succi printed two variants of the book, one intended for the German trade; the paper of the book is distinctly a superior Italian printing on fine paper except for the added leaves which are on the typically browned paper of seventeenth century German books. Probably Kinkius printed these two leaves and sent them to Italy to be added to his issue of the book. This copy is in a typical Italian binding of the time which implies, in this cataloger’s mind, that Succi supplied the books with the changes in a finished form to his German counterpart.

        COMMERCE MAP - ITALY, TYROL & SWITZERLAND: CARTA NOVA ACCURATA DEL PASSAGIO ET STRADA DALLI PAESI BASSI PER VIA DE ALLEMAGNA PER ITALIA ET PER VIA DI PAESI SVIZERI À GENEVA, LIONE ET ROMA : PER SERVIZIO DELLI MARCHANTI ET VIAGIANTI IN.

      - Rare road map shows the routes for travellers and merchants from the north of Italy to Bohemia, the Netherlands, and east France, across Germany and Switzerland. It embraces the area of the Alps, north Italy, Tyrol, Bavaria and south Germany, and parts of Slovenia and Istria. The key in the upper margin lists the distances. The map was published by a Dutch cartographer Frederick de Wit (1629/1630 – 1706), but made on comission by merchants of Bregenz. The city, known as a major trading center since the times of antiquity, is shown here in the center of the map. The unusual orientation of the map is intentional in order to fit in all the routes between the north of Italy and the Netherlands. This map is very rare on the market. It was probably published seperately and sometimes included in composite atlases (atlas factices).

        Copia de la carta, que el obispo de Arequipa Fray Don Pedro de Perea ... escriuiò al rey nuestro Señor Don Felipe IV. deste nombre, prouando la certeza que tiene, el auer sido la Virgen concebida sin pecado original ...

      Impresso en la Ciudad de los Reyes [i.e., Lima]: Por Geronymo de Contreras Small 4to (20 cm; 7.75"). [24] ff. 259, [1] pp., [18] ff.. 1629 Perea (ca. 1567–1630), an Augustinian who served as bishop of Arequipa from 1617 until his death, was a defender of the native population of his bishopric against the abuses of local officials and encomienda holders. Here he is the defender of Mary and the Church doctrine that she had been conceived free of original sin. Further he writes, "y no poderse definir en la Iglesia la opinion contraria." He adds, "Van añadidos en esta copia, los motivos, y principios, assi de nuestra fè, como de teologia, y algunas consideraciones cerca de la fiesta, en que funda el obispo su opinion, para poder mas facilmente satisfacer a las objeciones que pusieren a este nuevo pensamiento, los poco afectos a esta fiesta, que no se pusieron en dicha carta, respeto de no cansar a su Magestad alargandola." Interestingly, the bishop had sent copies of the manuscript of this work to several prominent clerics in Spain to read and comment on, and one of them has provided an approbation to print it. Provenance: Marca de fuego on the upper edges of a Franciscan monastery. We know of no book or database for identifying which monastery used which ones, in Peru. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only two copies in U.S. libraries. Searches of COPAC, CCPB, and the OPAC of the Spanish National Library locate no copies, and a search of KVK finds only one copy. Contemporary limp vellum with remnants of ties, lacks front and rear free endpapers. Stains in some margins; some waterstaining in different margins in different places, not seriously into text. Unwormed and crisp. A rather good copy.
