        Copia de una Carta que escrivio el Padre Tomas de Barros de la Compañía de Jesus en Junio de 622 al Padre General, en que declara lo que los de la Compañía hizieron en el Imperio de Etiopia, en el dicho año de 622

      N.d. [c1622]. N.p. [Madrid]. In folio (289 mm x 187 mm). 6 ff [9-14, complete]. Possibly early 20th century, half straight-grain-morocco, spine lettered in gilt, gently rubbed fine. A very clean copy only lightly browned, excellent. First edition. The 16th century was certainly the Age of Discovery, and the Jesuit Missions represent often the best sources of information of the places where they had a presence. c1600, the Portuguese, arguably in an effort to prevent Ottoman expansion, established a colony in Ethiopia; following this events, the Emperor Susenyos converted to Catholicism, favoring a Jesuit presence in the region. This presence was to be abruptly interrupted in 1634 following the abdication of Emperor Susenyos and rise of Fasiladas, who objected the reformations and the Jesuits. The letter is dated July 27, [1]622. Barros (1591 ? 1658) joined the order in 1610 in India, he was a teacher of humanities and philosophy; however, he is more known by his position as a Superior in Mogor and Tibet which granted him access to most available sources of information. The author relates the Residences at Gorgorá, Colelá and Fremoná, the Mission of Ancaxa and ends with a copy of the letter of Emperor Seltan Cegued. This letters were the ?newspapers? of their time, carrying news and relations and informing of the progresses achieved by the Order. Subsequently, they became the source of the informational power that characterized the Societas Iesu. Not in Palau (only mentioning a 1624 Barcelona edition). Sommervogel I, 928. OCLC records no copies.

The edges of the first and last leaves have been re-enforced, and a tear to the title page has been repaired - there is also a previous owner's name at the top of the title page, dated 1827. The Goatskin has attractive blind decoartion, including a diamond pattern panel marked off in the centre of the boards. He has also attached a pair of brass clasps attached to morocco tabs. A very pleasing copy of a scarce book. Woodcuts thoughout, to the rectos of most leaves of the first work.

        Citt? Antichissima in Toscana Metropoli.

      Roma, 1634 (con licenza de Superiori e Privil. del Somo Pont". Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 19,3 x 27,6 (alla lastra). Delineta da Piero Berrettini cortonese e disegnata da Giacomo Lauro Romano. In alto a sinistra stemma mediceo a sei palle; altri stemmi poco pi? in basso, sulla destra del foglio; legenda a quarantanove voci in due riquadri sempre sulla destra, nella parte bassa; in lastra in basso a sinistra, "I. Lauro Romano f. 1694"; poco pi? a destra "Piero Berettini Cortonese delin.". Il nome di Piero Berettini si riferisce a Pietro da Cortona, nato appunto come Pietro Berrettini (Cortona, 1569 - Roma, 1669), celebre pittore e architetto italiano. Non si conosce la data di nascita del Lauro, attivo prevalentemente in ambito romano come incisore, stampatore e conoscitore di antichit? tra il 1583 e il 1645. Il fatto che egli firmasse le sue opere come "Jacobus Laurus Romanus" lascia presumere che fosse originario di Roma e, al contempo, rende improbabile l'ipotesi di una possibile provenienza dai Paesi Bassi (Bertolotti, p. 221). Nulla si conosce della sua formazione. La prima testimonianza documentaria che attesta la sua presenza a Roma, in cui ? definito "intagliatore di rame romano", risale al 1583; mentre la sua prima stampa conosciuta ? un"Tiberio con la daga" (o "Il gladiatore"), pubblicata da C. Duchet nel 1585. Nonostante il Lauro abbia affrontato tematiche storiche, mitologiche e devozionali, ? noto soprattutto per la produzione di piante e vedute di citt?, a cominciare dalla veduta a volo d'uccello di Rocca Contrada (Arcevia), realizzata nel 1594 su disegno di E. Ramazzani (Anselmi). Nel 1599, basandosi su un disegno di Antonio Tempesta, incise e pubblic? una pianta di Roma, ristampata nel 1630, dal titolo "Septem Urbis ecclesiae cum earum reliquiis stationibus et indulgentiis". Negli anni 1630 - '45 il Lauro si dedic? alla pubblicazione di una serie di piante e descrizioni di citt? italiane e straniere in forma di piccoli opuscoli, alcuni dei quali furono raccolti nel 1639 sotto il titolo di "Heroico splendore delle citt? del mondo". In ognuno di essi il frontespizio ? seguito dalla dedica a un personaggio illustre, dalla pianta corredata di legenda, spesso derivata dall'opera di predecessori, e infine da una breve descrizione della citt?. Nell'opuscolo intitolato "Historia dell'antichissima citt? di Cortona in Toscana" del 1639 (Roma, Lodovico Grignani) la pianta della citt?, datata 1634, reca, oltre alla firma del Lauro, quella di Pietro da Cortona (vedi anche rist. anast., 1981, con il titolo "Dell'origine della citt? di Cortona in Toscana e sue antichit?"). La data di morte del Lauro non ? nota. Egli risulta gi? deceduto nel 1650, quando il teologo S. Gregorowic scriveva al figlio Michele per esprimergli stima e affetto (Ashby, I, p. 365). Rara veduta planimetrica di Cortona.,Margini un po' stretti oltre la battuta, due maccie sul alto sinistro del foglio, peraltro in bella impressione e in assai buono stato di conservazione.

Gustaf Adolf den andre och store/ Swerikes/ Göthes o[c]h Wendes konung/ storförste til Finland/ hertigh uthi Estland och Carelen/ herre utöfuer Ingermanland/ &c. fordom alles wår nådigeste konung/ &c. först öfwerläsin/ och efter h.k. m:tz nådige befalning/ strax ord från ord trykt blifvin/ och sedan imedlertijdh medh torftige register förbettrad/ och nu publicerat. (Uppsala, E. Mattsson), 1634. 4:o. (12),87,(1 blank,40) s. Enkelt nött hfrbd renoverat vid 1800-talets mitt med röd titeletikett i skinn. Titelbladet med svag fläck, litet skrapmärke i ramverket och i texten med förlust av en bokstav. Första och sista sidan förstärkta i inre marginalen. Fuktrand i nedre marginalen på s. (3) och missfärgningar på s. 1. De fyra avslutande bladen småfläckiga och med stor men svag fuktrand. Pärmens insida med raderad stpl, Carl Gethes namnteckning daterad 1858 och Kurt Winbergs exlibris. Ex. med breda marginaler ur Gustaf Bernströms bibliotek och med dennes anteckning "coll. cat".. Collijn 461-62. Utgiven av Johannes Bureus. "Konnunga styrilse" är en uppfostringslära för en ung kung skriven under svensk medeltid. Den kan vara författad för Magnus Eriksson ca 1330. Författaren är okänd, men troligen är verket en bearbetning av den italienske teologen och författaren Colonnas "De regimine principum" som var avsedd för Filip den sköne av Frankrike. Manuskriptet kom i Bureus händer via Johan Skytte och det stammar sannolikt ursprungligen från Vadstena kloster. Bureus hade redan 1624 arbetet färdigt för utgivning och Gustav II Adolf hade tankar på att anbefalla det för skolbruk. Det manuskript som Bureus använde sig av är i dag försvunnet och i äldre tid ifrågasattes arbetets äkthet. I och med fyndet av det s.k. "Vadstenafragmentet" i Helsingfors senatsarkiv 1867 har dock verkets äkthet bestyrkts. Schück har kallat Bureus utgåva "vår första egentliga textedition". Även om texten bygger på utländska förlagor är den både språkligt och innehållsmässigt en mycket lyckad och självständigt hållen bearbetning. En ny upplaga utkom 1650 och en ny edition utgavs av Schefferus 1669

        De Arte Bene Moriendi: libri duo

      Coloni Agrippin but Amsterdam Apud Cornelium ab Edmond i.e. G. J. Blaeu Coloniæ Agrippinæ [but Amsterdam] Apud Cornelium ab Edmond [i.e. G. J. Blaeu], 1634. 12mo. 4 7/16 x 2 inches), contemporary burgundy morocco with a series of triple gilt fillet borders forming an inner panel with a coat of arms in the center; spine with four raised bands, gilt tooling and titling. Board edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles; a.e.g A characteristic 17th century Dutch book (with its false Cologne imprint) opens with an historiated engraved title-page featuring an elegantly dressed man facing a draped skeleton holding a scythe; in the lower compartment is an angel resting one arm on a skull, with a broken hourglass and some flowers. On the verso of A2 there is a portrait of the Cardinal, facing the first page of text. Another engraving (A8 verso) depicts what must be a wake, with people eating and drinking, while in the background an angel leads a figure towards Heaven. The author of this contemplative work was a distinguished theologian, writer, and cardinal, born at Montepulciano, 4 October, 1542; died 17 September, 1621. It was first published in 1620, and editions appeared in several languages into the eighteenth century. In addition to his writings on a variety of subjects, he became involved with the early stages of the Galileo case, and when the Holy Office condemned the heliocentric theory it became Bellarmine's official duty to signify the condemnation to Galileo and receive his submission. Cardinal Robert Bellarmine stood, at the time of Galileo's first published writing on the subject of Copernicanism, as the Church's chief guardian against deviationists and its chief defender of orthodoxy.  Bellarmine had waged many battles on behalf of papal power.  He sought to create a papal superstate guided by the decisions of the Council of Trent.  Bellarmine attacked anti-Catholic laws in England, angering English leaders--many of whom accused him of responsibility for the infamous "Gunpowder Plot" to blow up Parliament.  In 1600, he framed the decision that brought Giordano Bruno, convicted heretic, to his death by fire at the stake. Bellarmine took on few of the splendid trappings that usually accompanied life as a cardinal.  He lived a prayerful and ascetic lifestyle.  Although noted for his candor and temper, Bellarmine also could be easygoing and even childlike.  One historian notes that he was famous for his "lighthearted punning." This work, written during one of his last annual retreats, is divided into two books, the second of which begins with a full-page engraving (K7 verso), showing a man in his bed surrounded by family and church preparing to die peacefully. The art of dying well has been the subject of prints and books since the middle ages, and people have always looked to the church for guidance. A very nice copy of an uncommon book.
