        Asia noviter delineata.

      Incisione in rame, dipinta a mano, 363x465. Rara edizione della carta dell'Asia, qui priva editorialmente della bordura ornamentale con i costumi e le vedute di città, sicuramente appositamente preparata ed inserita in qualche opera di viaggio, considerate le pieghe editoriali. W. Blaeu, astronomo allievo di Tycho Brahe, fondò un'officina per la costruzione di globi nel 1599; quasi immediatamente iniziò a pubblicare anche carte geografiche, giungendo nel 1630 alla creazione del primo atlante "Atlantis Appendix" e cinque anni dopo, della prima edizione in due tomi del "Atlas Novus". Dopo la sua morte nel 1638, a cura del figlio Johan si giunse nel 1662 alla pubblicazione del celebre "Atlas Maior" in 11 volumi. Nel 1672 un incendio distrusse l'officina e segnò la fine dell'attività. Bell'esemplare con margini brevi

Opera & studio Jonae Petri Gothi e Lincopensis. Adjecti etiam sunt ad calcem in usu tyronum indices duo, locupletissimi; prior sveco-latinus, posterior germanico-latinus, quorum uterq; integri lexici vicem supplere potest. Linköping, Christopherus Güntherus, 1640. Folio. a6,+ A6-4P6, 4O8, 4P6-4S6, 4T8,+ A6-B2 [av C6]. Lagat och uppfodrat titelblad, med bokstavsförluster, blad a5-6 uppfodrade i innermarginal, 4O-arket med papperlagning i övre hörn. De sista två bladen i det tysk-latinska indexet med papperslagning, med textförlust. Nött skinnband från början av 1700-talet, guldornerad rygg med upphöjda bind och titeletikett, trasig i övre kapitäl. Ur Germund Cederhielms bibliotek på Säby, med hans initialer, ur Christian Hammers, med exlibris, och ur Bengt Hesselmans, med hans namnteckning, daterad 1909. Diskret stämpel från Nordiska seminariet i Uppsala. Collijn sp. 703f. Uppslagsverket komplett, liksom det första svensk-latinska indexet, medan det sista, "Index germanico-latinus", med egen arksignatur, saknar 10 blad. De båda index är här interfolierade och försedda med blanka blad på slutet. Lexikonet påbörjades av Nicolaus Grubb och avlutades av Linköpingbiskopen Jonas Petri Gothus. Bra Linköpingproveniens! Jonas Petri Gothus var fram till 1624 rektor för katedralskolan i Linköping, dvs. trivialskolan i Linköping, som detta exemplar tillhört. 1624 blev han förflyttad till det nyinrättade gymnasiet i Linköping och 1637 utnämnd till biskop. Lexikonet var hans mest betydande lärda insats och under benämningen "lincopensen" var den i över 100 år det mest använda lexikonet. Även Grubb var anställd vid trivialskolan, men dog 1622. Jonas Petri gifte sig med änkan efter Grubb. Som varande en gammal skolbok från Linköpings trivialskola, så syns spåren av ett flitigt användande!

Translated into English, the "Historie of the Councel of Trent" chronicles the great Council that formed the modern Catholic Church. The Council of Trent played an important part in determining the outcome of the Counter-Reformation. Called for by Pope Paul Ill, the Council was finally disbanded in 1563; although it had a life span of 18 years, it was only engaged in talks for four and a half years. The Pope did not attend the meetings of the Council and he took no formal part in it, however his legates had to ensure that the pope?s views would always be put forward in order that there was no danger of the Council being superior to the Pope.The Council was called to examine doctrine and reform. Charles V had wanted abuses looked at first in an attempt to please the Protestants and hopefully tempt them back to the church. Once they were back they could look at doctrine. Paul III did not want this as reforms could financially damage him and concessions could diminish his authority. The result was that two separate sections dealt with reform and doctrine simultaneously. The Council of Trent did mark a turning-point in the history of the Catholic Church as it gave Catholics a certainty about their own beliefs and practices that had been lacking and offered a firm base on which the spiritual life of the Catholic world could be reconstructed

        Portulaca Sativa [Purslane]; Satureia Domestica [Garden savory (summer savory)]; Thymbra legitima [Winter savory]

      Eichstatt: 1640, 2nd edition. Hand-coloured engraving. In excellent condition with the exception of some paper loss on the left margin and in the bottom left corner. 20 3/4 x 16 1/4 inches. Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613. He worked on the drawings for the 374 copper engravings over a period of sixteen years using the plants in the garden of Bishop Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, his patron. Depicted in this florilegium were flowers, herbs, vegetables and newly discovered plants such as tobacco and peppers. Besler was, in modern terms, a botanist and horticulturalist, and he was familiar with real and alleged medicinal properties of various plants. Besler had the good fortune to live at a time when exotic plants were being shipped to Europe from all over the world. The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done.

        Imago primi saecvli Societatis Iesu a Provincia Flandro-Belgica eiusdem Societatis repraesentata. [Image of the First Century of the Society of Jesus]

      Antwerp: Ex Officina Plantiniana. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of one of the most important and celebrated texts of the Jesuits; a seminal text in spreading the influence of the Jesuits during the Counter-Reformation. Complete with engraved title and 126 engraved emblems including two world maps and the famous "Leone Belgico". In beautiful contemporary binding. "In 1640 the Jesuit order celebrated its 100th anniversary, for which a large number of festivities had been planned. One of the most prestigious events was undoubtedly the publication by the Antwerp Officina Plantiniana of the Imago Primi Saeculi Societatis Jesu. This impressive folio volume would become an icon of the Jesuit order at that time. Though the initiative was highly contested, the Jesuit order itself considered the volume to be a great success, and regarded it as a highly persuasive form of self-representation. A huge tome numbering more than a thousand pages, The Imago presents a chronological-thematic account of the history of the order, and contains a large number of rhetorical exercises, poems and emblems. These emblems were integral to the festivities of the Society's centennial, while simultaneously functioning as emblematic exhibitions ("affixiones") in the Antwerp Jesuit Church" (Marc van Vaeck, "Emblematic Versatility as a Strategy of Self-Representation"). On the importance of emblems to the Jesuits: "The Jesuits were the principal disseminators of the symbolic language that was developed in emblems and allegories beginning in the sixteenth century. In their influential educational system, the emblematic imagination was fundamental. The practical orientation of their pedagogy and their desire for intervention carried this creativity out to the plazas and streets, with a persuasive intent in the majority of instances. Their presence could be seen in both public and private spaces, but, in a deeper and more subtle manner, it could be appreciated in the mental habits of so many artists and writers who studied under the Jesuits. A disseminating nucleus of ideas and images was thus constituted, one that played with the mystery inherent in the symbolic image, in order to awaken attention and to achieve the maximum power of conviction within the sphere of the Counter-Reformation" (Rev. G. Richard Dimler, S. J., "Emblems and Symbols of the Society of Jesus"). Antwerp: Ex Officina Plantiniana, Balthasaris Moreti,1640. Folio, contemporary blind-stamped calf rebacked with portions of original spine laid-down; remnants of metal clasps. With rare half-title. Early owner inscription and small stamp on title. A few small rust spots, three leaves with small tears, minor dampstaining to outer corner of some leaves. A excellent copy in very handsome contemporary binding.

        Calceolus Mariae (Ladies Slipper) - Iris Pannonica Varigata (Dark variegated bearded Iris) - Iris Portugalica (Blue variegated bearded Iris) from Hortus Eystettensis

      Nuremburg:. 1640.. Second & preferred edition?. Published in an edition of 300 in 1613, the Hortus Eysttensis is the earliest large folio botanical and is considered one of the greatest botanical books ever created. This is a very strong impression, with an early hand notating the species names in German below the label for each flower. Archivally framed. The fresh, strong impression & absence of any bleed-through of text from the verso would suggest that this is the second & preferred edition, published in 1640, but it cannot be categorically stated because of the framing.
