        HIPPARCHUS, /DE RELIGIOSO /NEGOTIATORE. /Disceptatio /MEDIASTINUM inter ac TIMOTHEUM /QUAE NEGOTIATIO A RELI- /gioso statu Abhorreat. /lucubratio RENATI A VALLE, /Magistri in Theologia.

      Francopoli: Petrus Salvianus, 1642, Francopoli - (8), 224 pp. Original latin, first edition. Small 8to (165*100 mm). Contemporary full vellum, title (Hipparcus. de Relig. Negotiator:) on spine calligraphed in black. Small part of front edge of front board chipped. Interior browned, small signature on front flyleaf. Alltogether in fine condition taking into account age and rarety. This is the first and only edition in the original Latin. A French translation (Hipparque.) was published in 1645 in France (Orange?) and a new translation (Le Moine Marchand.) in 1714 in Amsterdam (see Kress 2925), reprinted in 1761. 3 copies in BNF, another one in OCLC (Un. of Chicago) the description of both with exactly matching title and collation. Hipparchus refers to one of the first period dialogs of Plato, which in 1818 has been translated in French under the title: Hypparque ou l'amour du gain. This very well summarises the content of this older book, which is a comment to a bill issued by pope Urbanus VIII. The text of this bill is included at the end of the present work (pp. 220-224), dated Romae, die 29. Augusti 1637. The bill prohibits Roman Catholic priests to negotiate. Evidently such a prohibition was necessary. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Provincia Brixiana cum confinijs 1642.

      Dalla ?Chorographica descriptio Provinciarum et Conventum minorum S. Francisci Capucinorum??, Iussu Ioannis a Montecalerio, Roma, 1643 (prima edizione). Incisione in rame, b / n, 22 x 30,5 (alla lastra) più margini. Tavola senza testo al verso, sul lato ds. titolo entro piccolo e semplice cartiglio, con il nome della Provincia. Margine graduato su tutto il perimetro; senza reticolato; scale grafiche sul lato ds., sotto il cartiglio. Ciascuna delle carte è preceduta e rilegata insieme a un foglio che fa da frontespizio alla singola carta della provincia, e ciascun foglio è inciso e diversamente decorato con precisazioni di appartenenza ecclesiastica e laica; in questo caso il foglio manca. L'atlante, voluto dall''ordine dei frati cappucini, e relativo alle province cappuccine, era stato iniziato in forma manoscritta dal ministro generale dell'ordine, padre Silvestro da Panicale nel 1632 e doveva servire da sussidio geografico per le visite generali. Alla sua morte il successore Padre Giovanni di Montecaliero, al quale spesso viene erroneamente attribuita la paternità delle carte, incaricò padre Massimino da Guechen di proseguire l'opera. Gli incisori delle lastre furono appunto Massimino da Guechen, Bernardino Burdigalensis e Ludovico Monteregali. L? Autore fu ecclesiastico e geografo a Roma. L?opera, un atlante comprendente le 25 province dei Cappuccini (fra cui una carta dell'Italia che funge da tavola quadro di unione dell'atlante), fu ristampata a Milano nel 1711 e nel 1712 da Giovanni Battista Cassini, mentre le precedenti edizioni delle carte rappresentanti le sedi dei Padri Cappuccini (prima ediz. Roma 1643, seconda ediz. Torino 1646) presentano caratteristiche simili (meno sintetiche rispetto alle successive). Tra i nomi degli incisori taluni citano Maximinus da Guchen, l'editore è Giovani Montecaliero. Affascinante carta in cui vengono evidenziati i toponimi significativi per la presenza ecclesiastica e conventuale e peraltro, in virtù della sua schematicità, di scarso interesse cartografico e non riconducibile ad alcun precedente modello. (Cfr. Lee, Philips, A list of geographical atlases, VI, 7650; Roberto Borri, L?Italia nell?antica cartografia 1477 - 1799, p. 128, carta 170). Poco reperibile. Alcune pieghe della carta e difetti marginali ma nell'insieme in discreto stato di conservazione.

        The Flaming Hart, or,The life of the glorious S. Teresa, Foundresse of the Reformation, of the Order of the all-immaculate Virgin-Mother, our B. Lady, of Mount Carmel, this History of her Life, was written by the Saint herselfe, in Spanish, and is newly, now, translated into English.

      Antwerpen, Ioannes Meursius, 1642. 8vo. Near contemp. full calf over wood with 2 brass clasps intact. Blindtooled lineborders on spine and covers. Weak handwritten title on a red titlelabel on spine. (72),660,(12) pp. A few small inkspots, a few pencil underlinings, oherwise clean.. First edition of the second English translation of St. Teresa's famous autobiography (the first on being from 1611, by Michael Walpole, also published in Antwerp). St. Teresa (1515-1582) was an outstanding figure in the Spanish Renaissance, reformer of the Carmelite Order and founder of the Discalced Carmelites along with John of the Cross. She was canonized 1622 by Pope Gregory XV. To this day, her work is considered to be one of the most exalted examples of Mystical writing, and she continues to be widely revered both as a saint and as a writer.The translator, Sir Tobie Matthew (1577-1655), was one of the most notable converts of 17th century England. He was the son of the Archbishop of York. He became member of Parliament, and later member of the House of Commons. He frequented Elizabethan court, and upon the advent of King James I he joined his court as well, receiving a generous grant from him insuring his financial future. He converted to Catholicism after having traveled throughout Italy and France. Upon his return to England he was imprisoned for several months during the Papist persecutions. He fell in and out of favor with the royals on a number of occasions, and suffered a few exiles. Interestingly, whenever he wasn't in exile, he was to be found either in the closest circles of the King and Queen, or with his friend Francis Bacon, with whom he stayed after one of his exiles, in 1617. It was during this time that Matthew translated Bacon's Essays into Italian. Some of their correspondence is included in a 1660 volume published by John Donne Jr. (1604-1662).It is still argued whether or not Matthew was a Jesuit. His 1907 biographer and self-described "kinsman," Arnold Harris Mathew, points out that he bequeathed all his earthly possessions to the order, and that he was indeed ordained by none other than Cardinal Bellarmino himself (perhaps the most famous Jesuit of the era, widely remembered for his role in the Galileo process).Matthew was a member of Gray's Inn, where he met the man who was to be his best friend, Francis Bacon. The great man himself, in a letter of introduction to the famous Spanish ambassador Conde Gondomar, refers to him as "... domini Tobiae Matthaei, qui mihi est alter ego..." Another notable convert of the era was Richard Crashaw (1612-1649). He was one of the main figures in the so-called group of Metaphysical poets, though his literary production has been generously called "uneven." This is no small part due to the fact that his style might be more closely associated with Spanish mysticism. Indeed, one of his best known poems is "The Flaming Heart Upon The Book And Picture Of The Seraphical Saint Teresa," largely based on and inspired by Matthew's book.Both Matthews's translation and Crashaw's poem played no small role numerous confrontations sparked by the Catholic mystical corpus with between Protestants and Catholics in 17th century England

[2], 11, [3] p.; 19 cm. Signatures: A-B4. (4to). Disbound. Title within ornamental border; first page of text has engraved head-piece and initial.

        La logique francoyse diuisée en trois parties selon les trois actions de l'entendement. Contenant plusieurs belles & curieuses disputes & questions filosofiques qui enseignent a bien discourir & raisoner.

      1642 - Utrecht, H. Borculoy, 1642. 8:o. (15,1 blank),287 pp. Contemporary vellum with some traces of a hand-written title and numbering on spine. Blue sprinkled edges. A bit closely cut. Occasional dampstains in the outer margin. With a long note by Erich Vigelius that he has given the book to Carl Piper in 1713 and C. F. Piper's signature dated the same year. From the library of Biby manor. Jean Louys D'Arsy is probably mostly known for his great Flemish-French dictionary. Eric Vigelius (1657-1731) was vicar of Ängsö church at Ängsö manor, which the Piper family had acquired in 1710. This copy was presented by him to Carl Fredric Piper (1700-70) who already at the age of nine was registered student at the University of Uppsala. In this Latin note Vigelius writes that he presents the book as a token of appreciation of Piper, known for his impressive readiness to learn and his high moral standards. His father, Carl Piper, was at the time in inprisonment in Russia where he eventually died in 1716. The son was later President of the Swedish administrative court of appeal and a fellow of the Academy of Science. This copy has probably been bought by Ulric Celsing (1731-1805) on the auction at Ängsö in 1803 where C. F. Piper's fine library was dispersed. Celsing was a diplomat and his book collection became the foundation of the library at Biby manor. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

London: printed for John Tap, 1630. 92p., unnumbered. Two vols. in one, sm. 4to, early speckled calf, spine gilt, brown morocco label (spine rubbed, upper cover detached). With numerous woodcut diagrams. Aside from the loose cover, a very good crisp copy; bookplate and small blindstamps of the Macclesfield library. STC 19966 and 19968a (also listed as Wing P2297A); Adams and Waters, English Maritime Books, 2900. Third edition in English; preceded by editions of 1614 and 1630, as translated, with additional material, from the Latin text published at Heidelberg in 1595 (with the "Canon," or tables of trigonometrical functions, added in 1600). The revised STC tentatively assigns this printing of the Pitiscus text to 1642, without explanation; rights to the book had been assigned to George Hurlock in 1634. The supplementary tables of sines, etc., are the sheets as printed in 1630, with the original title-page preserved. Pitiscus was the first to use the term trigonometry, and he is sometimes credited as well with having invented the decimal point, as adapted by Napier in his work on logarithms. "Although Pitiscus worked much in the theological field, his proper abilities concerned mathematics, and particularly trigonometry. His achievements in this field are important in two respects: he revised the tables of Rheticus to make them more exact, and he wrote an excellent systematic textbook on trigonometry, in which he used all six of the trigonometric functions." -- DSB, Of additional interest is the section (pp. 177-208) added by the translator Ralph Handson, describing some of the uses of trigonometry in solving problems of navigation; in 1633 Handson also published a broadside relating to bookkeeping, of which a single imperfect copy survives.

        Mémoires sur les actions les plus éclatantes et sur les droits les plus prestigieux des Comtes et Ducs, Chefs de la Royale Maison de Savoie (Manuscrit)

      - Trois volumes in-folio sur cinq, comprenant au Tome I : de Berold de Saxe, premier Comte de Savoie à Amédée Septième. 214 pages avec une préface de l'auteur. Tome IV : Charles Emmanuel Premier. 190 pages. Tomes V : de Victor Amédé Premier à Charles Emmanuel Second. 139 pages. Histoire finissant en 1642 et se terminant par « Fin des mémoires de Savoie composées par le C.R. ». Cet ensemble est une copie tout début XVIIIè du manuscrit jamais publié du Chanoine Rambert de la Sainte Chapelle de Chambéry, mort en 1728. On fait référence à cet ouvrage dans « Manno » biblio tome 1, « Foras » Tome 5, pages 57 à 60, « Grillet » Tome 2, page 143, « S.S.H.A » Tome 28, pages XXXIII à XXXVII. Deux exemplaires complets existent à la bibliothèque Royale de Turin, et un exemplaire chambérien est passé dans les mains de Mr Mugnier qui le considère, quoique criticable, d'une agréable écriture. En effet on y trouve Berold de Saxe, totalement inventé afin de créer une filiation honorable à la famille de Savoie, mais aussi de multiples anecdotes forts curieuses, jamais justifiées dans leur provenance. Le Chanoine Rambert fut Evèque d'Aoste en 1727 juste avant sa mort lors de son voyage à Chambéry en 1728. Il fait partie de la famille chargé de la Baronnie de Chatillon et des Seigneurs de Chautagne. Les 3 volumes manuscrits sont reliés dans un carton d'époque avec dos devenu muet avec les marges frottés. Le tome IV a des traces d'humidité et le tome V une trace de vers.

De theologia gentili, et physiologia Christiana, sive, De origine ac progressu idololatriae, ad veterum gesta, ac rerum naturam, reductae: de que naturae mirandis, quibus homo adducitur ad Deum. Liber I, et II

      Amsterdam: Jioh, & Corneium Blaeu, 1642 - Scarce second edition of Maimonides' tract on idolatry with an important new foreword "to the Reader" by Isaac Vossius, brother of the recently deceased translator, Dionysius Vossius (1612-1642), as well as a new dedicatory poem by Caspar Barlaeus. Maimonides' text is usually accompanied, as it is here, by the massive commentary by Gerardus Vossius (father of Isaac and Dionysius) DE THEOLOGIA GENTILI - a book said to have been an iinfluence on Isaac Newton; his library contained an "extensively dog-eared" copy of the book (John Harrison, THE LIBRARY OF ISAAC NEWTON, Cambridge University Press, p. 258). This particular copy has a very distinguished provenance. Dr. Frederic Gardiner was an Episcopal clergyman, Biblican scholar, founder of the American Exegetical Society, and author of several books (including a Harmony of the Gospels). Henry Ferguson, of Stamford, Ct., "studied theology in the Berkeley Divinity School. In 1872 he was made rector of Christ Church in Exeter, N. H., and in 1878 rector of Trinity Church, Claremont, in the same state. In 1883 he became professor of history and political economy in Trinity College, a position he filled with distinguished credit until commencement in 1906, when he resigned to become rector of St. Paul's School, Concord, N. H. In 1873 he married Emma J. Gardiner, daughter of Professor Gardiner of the Berkeley Divinity School - His original specialty was Hebrew-" (Norris Galpin Osborn, ed., MEN OF MARK IN CONNECTICUT, Vol I, p. 132) Second edition of each title. 2 books bound in one volume vols., 4to.

        Academias morales de las musas ?.

      Bordeaux, Pedro de la Court, 1642. - Copper-engraved title-page. Full-page copper-engraved portrait. Woodcut initials, elaborate woodcut headpiece at beginning of dedication, repeated on pp. 1, 115, 227, and 323, other woodcut headpieces and typographical vignettes. Ruled divisional titles on pp. 75, 181, and 275. Engraved title, (12 ll.), engraved portrait, 478 pp., (2 ll.). Leaves ii and ii2 bound after ii3 and ii4; several leaves incorrectly signed. 4°, nineteenth century quarter calf over marbled boards (worming to leather on upper cover), two black leather labels, gilt letter, edges sprinkled red. Title backed. Minor worming, almost exclusively in margins, but touching a few letters of text. Some small, fairly light waterstains, restricted to first 60 or so pages, a bit larger and slightly heavier in first few leaves. Light browning. Overall almost in good condition. ---- FIRST EDITIONS of both works.Scholarly accounts of the author's life differ widely, and much research remains to be done to sort out the conflicting assertions, although the following may be reasonably accurate. Enriquez Gomez (1600-1663), the son of Portuguese Jews, was probably born in Cuenca (some say Segovia, others Lisbon). Entering the military at the age of 20, he rose to the rank of captain before fleeing to France in 1636 amid growing suspicions concerning his religious beliefs. He lived in Bordeaux, Rouen, and Paris, where he secured an appointment as secretary to Louis XIII. While in France Enriquez Gomez also pursued a distinguished career as a novelist, poet, and playwright. There are rumors of earlier @pliegos or @sueltas; his first certain published book (preceded only by a pamphlet, @Triumpho lusitano, which appeared in 1641), @Academias morales (Bordeaux, 1642), contains various poetical works and four comedias. Surely due to its rarity, some bibliographers, never having seen a copy, repeat the erroneous and improbable date of 1612 instead of 1642 for the first edition. Two years later he published perhaps his best-known work, the picaresque novel @El siglo pitagórico y vida de D. Gregorio Guadaña (Rouen, 1644). Enriquez Gomez's dramatic output numbers over two dozen comedias - most composed in the Calderonian manner - and possibly includes several written under the pseudonym(?) Fernando de Zárate. The Inquisition was a frequent target of Enriquez Gomez's pen, especially in the second part of his @Política angélica (Rouen, 1647) where he called for various reforms, particularly relaxation of its emphasis on @limpieza de sangre which had perhaps prompted his own flight a decade earlier. Despite having been burned in effigy at an auto da fé in Seville in 1660, Enriquez Gomez returned there shortly afterward. He was arrested by the Inquisition and died in Seville in 1663, perhaps while still imprisoned.---- @Répertoire bibliographique des livres imprimés en France au XVIIe siècle XIV, 153, no. 975 (without mention of the engraved title or engraved portrait; locating 6 copies including the BL and HSA).

It is rich in details of the progress of the Society of Jesus in both Asia and America. In fact, it seems that every event associated with the Church all over the world was intended to be registered. It also doesn´t appear to be a common book, not a copy is registered as having sold at auction. Embellished with a handsome engraved title page by Navarro. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      1642 - An important and early chart of eastern Brazil. c.1642. Amsterdam. A very good example, wide margins, contemporary colour. 500 mm x 385 mm. The map features strong detail of the coastline, with some rather fictitious places and an exaggerated eastern tip. By the first half of the 17th century, Brazilian inland was mostly unknown; this map reflects the relative ignorance regarding the geographical reality of the immense landmass. Embellished with two cartouches –one with the Dutch coat of arms-, two compass roses, and sailing ships. Published in Blaeu’s Atlas Maior, Dutch edition.

        Ã” [He Kaine Diatheke]

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1642. Fol., (4), 453, (3) pp. [A-Iii4]. Text in Ancient Greek (Koine). Strong contemporary mottled calf binding with minor restoration, top cover stamped in gilt with the insignia of the Earl of Coningsby, gilt lettering and decoration to backstrip. Engraved decorations throughout, including an engraved title-page by Claude Mellan. Page 291 (PaulÕs 2nd Corinthians, Chpt. 6) with stains, though text still legible. Very good. GaramondÕs Greek types from mid-sixteenth century, used at the Estienne dynasty of printers, accepted still as the most beautiful Greek types ever devised, became a precious part of the equipment of the Imprimerie Royale when Richelieu established it in 1640; and among the splendid early folios from the Imprimerie Royale was this Greek Testament of 1642, known as the Mazarin edition. This copy came from the library of Leonard and Lisa Baskin with their several book labels.& & ÔA handsome copy of the so-called Ã’Mazarin editionÓ of the Greek New Testament. The Imprimerie Royale had been established in 1640, at the behest of Cardinal Richelieu; it produced a number of distinguished editions in its first years. Cardinal Mzarin assumed control of the press (and much else besides) on RichelieuÕs death in 1642; the present edition was printed under his auspices. Textually, it is closely based on the Elzevir edition of [1624]; it adds a 30 page appendix of Ã’Variae lectiones.Ó It is an attractive edition, well-printed in a clear Greek face, and with generously proportioned margins; the engraved decorative material works very well with the letterpress text, and the title-page, drawn & engraved by the great Claude Mellan, is particularly pleasing (a version of the design was adapted for use by the Oxfod University printers). Updike called the edition Ã’fine,Ó Darlow and Moule Ã’magnificent,Ó and Dibdin Ã’splendid.Ó & & Ã’One of the impressive folios from the first generation of books printed at the Manufacture Royale de lÕImprimerie, which Richelieau had persuaded Louis XIII to create two years earlier, this New Testament shoes off the increased fonts of the Grecs du Roi to excellent effectÓ (Fletcher, Printing for Kingdom, Empire, and Republic: Treasures from the Archives of the Imprimerie Royale, p. 77).& & Updike, Printing Types, 1927, p. 240; Darlow & Moule 4687; Dibdin, Greek and Latin Classics. 4th ed. Vol. 1, p. 137.

        Discurso politico sobre o se aver de largar a Coroa de Portugal, Angola, S. Thome, & Maranhão, exclamado aos Altos, & Poderosos Estados de Olanda

      1642 - Protest against the actions of the Dutch Admiral Corneliszon Jol in Africa and Brazil. 1642. Lisbon. Antonio Alvarez. In 4to (190 mm x 140). 6 ff. Modern marbled boards, leather label on upper board. Some light damp staining, overall fine. First edition in Portuguese. The work was translated from “Copia primae allegationis legatus ad ordines generales Foederati Belgij” (Hague, 1642). Andrada Leitão protests against the activities of Admiral Cornelius Corneliszon Jol (also known as Pé de Pau) and other attacks on Portuguese possessions by the Dutch, in violation of the ten-year peace treaties between their country and Portugal signed in 1641 and 1642. He mentions specifically the fleet under Jol that went to Angola and S. Thomé, and the activities of the same Admiral in Maranhão and Pernambuco. He also argues that the newly independent kingdom of Portugal should not be treated as a vassal of Spain, with whom the Dutch were at war. Andrade Leitão (d. 1655) was chosen to pronounce an oration at D. João IV's coronation in 1640, and became so trusted by D. João that he was appointed Ambassador Plenipotentiary to England and then to Holland. He also went as Ambassador Plenipotentiary to the peace congress at Munster and Osnaburg in Westphalia.

The first edition of a learned essay on the origins of the American Indians. It was a reply to Grotius who had argued in 1642 that the American Indians were descendants of Norsemen, Ethiopians, and Chinese, basing his theory mainly on linguistic arguments. Hornius criticized Grotius's philological approach and placed the origins of the American peoples in Scythia, Phoenicia, Carthage and China. The work is bound with Blesdijk's famous biography of the Anabaptist leader David Joris, edited by Jacobus Revius. First published in 1559, it remains the most important source for the life and teaching of David Joris.Fine copies.

        (Sefer Yezir = Hebrew title) id est LIBER IEZIRAH qui Abrahamo patriarchae adscribitur, una cum commentario rabi Abraham F. D. super 32 Semitis Sapientiae, a quibus liber Iezirah incipit. Translatus & notis illustratus

      Amsterdam, apud Joannem & Jodocum Janssonios, 1642.a Joanne Stephano Rittangelio. THIRD TRANSLATION INTO LATIN 1642, with parallel Hebrew and Latin texts in 2 columns. Small 4to, approximately 200 x 140 mm, 7¾ x 5½ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, title page printed red and black, 2 engraved plates of the cabbalistic tree, pages: (8), 208, lacking final Errata leaf, bound modern full calf, ornate blind stamped border to covers, raised bands to spine, small blind motif in compartments, gilt lettered red morocco label, new endpapers.

A good plus copy of a rare book lacking only the Errata leaf. This work on the Sepher Yetzirah (Sefer Yezir and various other spellings) or "Book of Formation", perhaps the oldest Rabbinical treatise of Kabalistic philosophy which is still extant, originates possibly from as early as the third centuiry AD. The first Latin translation was made by Guillaume Postel and published in Paris in 1552; a second translation by Johannes Pistorius was published in the In Tomas Primus of "Artis Cabalisticae" in Basle in 1587. Rittangel (1606 - 1652) was Professor of Hebrew at the University of Konigsberg and his version is the first to give parallel texts. He also added the "32 Paths of Wisdom" in Hebrew and Latin, followed by the commentary on the the Paths of Wisdom (also in Latin and Hebrew), and an explanation by him of it. The commentary is now believed to be by the 14th century writer Joseph ben Shalom ha - Ashkenazi. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.
