        Gazophylacium rerum naturalium e regno vegetabili, animali et minerali depromptarum, nunquam hactenus in lucum editarum, fidelis cum figuris auneis ad vivum incisis repraesentatio opera Michaelis Ruperti Besleri medice et reipublicae Norib. physici ordinarii et officinarum pharmaceuticarum p.t. visitatoris senioris.

      . [Nueremberg], 1642. Folio (34.3 x 22.5 cm). Engraved title page and 33 (of 34) engraved plates. Later blind paper binding.* Very rare first edition of natural history objects and antiques in the Wunderkammer of the brothers Basil (1561-1629) and Hieronymus (1566-1632) Besler. This "proto-museum" was inherited and enriched by Basil's nephew, the Neuremberg physician and pharmacist Michael Rupert Besler (1607-1661). This 'treasury of natural things from the vegetable, animal, and mineral kingdoms' contains birds, shells (some delicately carved), corals, minerals, and typical Wunderkammer artefacts such as a unicorn horn, several 'Arcimboldo' grotesque of shells, antique coins and pretty polished marble slabs, along with such unica as the sword of the Bohemian knight Johann Zisca (c.1378-1424; leader of the Hussites). Many rare plants and birds are figured, along with ethnographic objects such as a Brazilian Indian girdle made from the nuts of the Brazilian tree Cerbera ahovai. The image of this plate was used for the border of Valentini's Museum museorum (Frankfurt 1714). Besler was a in Nuremberg, was a virtuoso scholar-collector, and also assembled an important collection of art and antiquities. These plates were reissued in 1716, and 1733. In this first edition there is no further text, other than the (sometimes extensive) plate captions. This copy is printed on blue proof paper, and before letters and numbers. Only the last plate bound in is on white paper. This is plate 13 in copies with numbering. Plate 14, with the intestines of the wolf, is lacking. This suggests that initially the plates were printed and perhaps distributed in a more random order and that this copy was bound before the work was truly finished. Some worm traces on the inner margin Cobres p. 102 n 10; Nissen ZBI, 346..

        La Retorica delle puttane. Composta conforme li precetti di Cipriano. Dedicata alla universita delle cortegiane piu celebri.

      "Cambrai" (but Venice), 1642.. 12mo. (153) pp., final blank f. Marbled half calf (c. 1780) with giltstamped spine labels and floral endpapers. All edges sprinkled in red.. Almost unobtainable first edition of the author's most notorious work: "Prima ediz. stamp. colla falsa data di Cambrai nel 1642" (Libr. Vinciana, p. 21). The "libro piu pornografico e piu aretinesco del '600" (Q. Marini, P. Aretino nel '600, in: P. Aretino nel cinquecentenario della nascita, p. 486). "The Rhetoric of Whores", a scandalous anti-Jesuit work, "demonstrates why Pallavicino was the only Italian author of his epoch capable of a coherent vision that integrated satire, skepticism, and naturalistic morality" (Muir, Culture Wars [Cambridge: Harvard, 2007], p. 90). The book is written in the form of a dialogue between an aged prostitute and her naive apprentice. The fifteen lessons of the old whore were based on Cipriano Suarez's "De arte rhetorica", the manual used in Jesuit schools. Muir pointedly notes, "By systematically pursuing the parallels between rhetorical persuasion and erotic seduction, Pallavicino demonstrates how the high art of rhetoric has the same instrumental character as the lowly deceptions of the prostitute." - Some browning throughout. Prettily bound; removed from the Nadasdy library with stamp on title page. Exceedingly rare: no copy in auction records internationally; the earliest recorded copy sold in 1960 (another false "Cambrai" imprint, but dated 1644). - BL (Italian Books) 647. OCLC 65523066. Cf. Libr. Vinciana 75 (1673 Villafranca ed. only). Englisch 605. Brunet IV, 1251.

        (In griech. Typen: Hi Kaini tou Jesou Christou Diathiki - Novum Testamentum Jesu Christi)

      (In griech. Typen: Paris 1642 in der Königlichen Druckerei) in Imperator-Folio (44 x 31 cm). Einspaltiger Bibeltext. Ausschließlich mit Garamonds Grecs du Roi hergest. griech. Bibeltext, die Verseinteilung im laufenden Text mit zarten arab. Ziff. andeutend. Einschl. Vortitel (aufgezogen) u. radiert. Tit. (verso: weiß): 2 nnff, 453, (1) pp. Restaur. Hbldbd m. verstärkten Ldecken auf 6 erhab. Bünden, farbenprächtige großmustr. Vorsätze u. sehr breite weiße Ränder (z. Vorder- u. Fußschnitt: 10 cm u. zum Kopf: 6 cm bei einem Satzspiegel v. 27x14,5 cm); fast durchgehend jedoch - infolge Blumenpressens u. chaotischer Kriegsereignisse - fleckig-gebräunt, hier u. da wasserfl. nebst Quetschfalten u. vereinz. Abklatsche der Radierungen, was stört u. traurig macht. Die vom Holocaust verursachten Einbandschäden sind inzwisch. fachmänn. behoben. Druckvorlage ist Stephanus Editio Regia von 1550 (Stuttg. C 66) ohne jegl. 'gelehrten' Beiwerks, gedruckt jedoch ebenfalls mit den 3 gängigen Grecs du roi von Claude Garamond (um 1480-1561, vgl NBG XIX 424). Dieses 'schwergewichtige' (3,9 kg) Bibelbuch war das Prestige-Objekt der gerade 2 Jahre zuvor von König Ludwig XIII (1601/10-1643) im Beisein von Richelieu u. Mazarin gegründeten Imprimerie Royal, deren erster Direktor der Buchaesthet Sebastian Cramoisy war. Mit dem Gründungsakt der Königl. Druckerei war - auf Betreiben Mazarins - der Auftr. zum Druck einer 8-bändigen lat. Folio-Bibel (Stuttg. D 1102) u. des Folio-NT-Graece (Stuttg. C 259) verbunden. Letzteres hat Richelieu (1585/1622-42) noch erlebt u. Mazarin (1602/41-61) hat sich ein unvergängliches Denkmal gesetzt. - Graphik als Zierde einer Bibel durfte nicht fehlen. Hiermit wurde Claude Mellan (1598-1688) betraut, ein Künstler in der Blüte seiner Schaffenskr., der nach Rückkehr v. etw. 20-jährig. Italien-Aufenthalt der 'Königl. Druckerei' empfohlen wurde. Hier erhielt er seinen erst. großen Auftrag: 21 große rad. Init. (7 zeilig), 21 große rad. Kopf- u. 11 Schlußvignetten u. ein total (Bild wie Schrift) radiertes Titelblatt (36,5x25 cm). - Fortsetzung:. Die Radierungen mit großartigen Schattenwirkungen zeugen von einer schier unerschöpfl. Phantasiefülle u. einem tiefen Verständnis für Symbolik u. Emblematik. - Solch ein künstler. "Wurf" (wie beim Titelbl.), der das Spannungsfeld v. 'Altem Bund' als 'nomos phobou' zum 'Neuen Bund' als 'nomos erotos' (und nicht: agapi!) sichtbar macht, lädt zum kurzen Verweilen ein, wobei wir das Herausstellen von E R O S einem Künstler verdanken: In den Basisblock eines darauf etwas quer gestellten Obelisken schlägt ein - nur in blassen Konturen erscheinender - Krieger mit dem Schwert in hebr. Lettern das 'Gesetz der FURCHT' in den Stein, während auf einem Podest knieend eine übermächt. weibl. Figur mit Flügeln in den Obelisken - u. dort in einen herzförmigen Blütenkranz - mit griech. Lettern das 'Gesetz des EROS auf dem Berge Sion' mit 'Liebespfeil' einritzt u. über den Köpfen wirbeln 3 geflügelte Putten das Spruchband mit 'HI Kaini Diathiki' durch die Lüfte. Solch ein Künstler hat es eigentl. gar nicht verdient, daß man seinen Namen erst nach intensivem Suchen! - ganz in Ornamenten versteckt - findet (p 315, Name 'auf dem Kopf'). - Stuttg.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("H. de Groot").

      Paris, 28. III. 1642.. ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse und Siegelspur (Faltbrief). Gerahmt hinter Glas.. An den schwäbischen Heerführer Christoph Martin Frh. von Degenfeld (1599-1653), unter dem Grotius' Sohn in der schwedischen Armee gedient hat und dem er seine Treue und Gefolgschaft versichert: "Nous touts qui sommes icy, moi, les Dames, le filz et la fille remercions vostre Illustrete de la souvenance qu'elle a de nous: et la prions de croire que ce qui a manque au traittement deu a ses qualitez est supple par l'affection qui a este, est, et sera toujours tres sincere [...]". - Degenfeld, der sich zunächst im Gefolge Wallensteins ausgezeichnet hatte, kämpfte schließlich auf der Seite der Schweden und mußte nach dem kaiserlichen Sieg 1634 nach Straßburg fliehen. Als Oberster General der fremden Reiterei in französischen Diensten überwarf er sich im Jahr der Abfassung des vorliegenden Briefes mit Kardinal Richelieu und trat als Generalgouverneur von Dalmatien und Albanien in venezianische Dienste. Hierauf dürfte sich Grotius mit der Erwähnung von Degenfelds neuem "lieu de repos" im vorliegenden Schreiben beziehen. Grotius selbst war zum damaligen Zeitpunkt schwedischer Botschafter in Paris; durch sein 1625 erschienenes Hauptwerk "De jure belli ac pacis" gilt er als Begründer des internationalen Völkerrechts. - Briefe Grotius' sind von größter Seltenheit; der vorliegende ist der einzige, der seit 1950 auf dt. Auktionen nachweisbar war (Autographensammlung Dr. Robert Amman, Stargardt 16. XI. 1961, Nr. 353).

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. Title page unevenly browned, showing signs of damp damage, small repair to upper corner, tiny chip to lower corner, a few old paper repairs on reverse to strengthen, lower third of next few pages lightly browned, diminishing to affect lower margin only and disappearing by page 31, small damp stain to upper margin of last few leaves, leaves throughout slightly wavy, small neat ink Hebrew inscription to title page. 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.

        Gloriosa coroa d? esforcados religiosos da Companhia de Iesu

      A primary source for the early experiences of the Jesuits in the East Indies and Brazil. 1642. Lisbon. Antonio Alvarez. In folio (278 mm x 185 mm). 6 ff. ?including full page coat of arms- + 736 + 7 ff. Borba de Moraes calls for 8 ff. of prelims ?not 6, as here-, however he appears to be the only one who does, quite possibly a variant. Contemporary limp vellum, a little soiled, ties lacking, entirely original condition. Some toning throughout as always for the paper used, generally good, genuine copy with its first binding.First edition. An important work on the Jesuit works in Brazil, Japan and the East Indies. It is rich in information and contains much detail on the life and apostolic missions of Jesuit missionaries in South East Asia, becoming one of the first and more substantial works on the subject. The section on Japan and South East Asia occupies roughly half of Guerreiro?s work. He opens with a description of Japanese history, geography, and customs and a commentary on the relations between missionaries and Japanese rulers, then moves on to list dozens of Jesuits ?many of them native Japanese- who died in Japan from the late 16th century to the 1630s. In the East Indies, he deals with India, Ceylon, and the Moluccas; in all cases, his details are from original sources and some times fresh as had previously not been printed. As a Jesuit, the access to information provided by the missionaries around the globe was made readily available to Guerreiro, who took advantage of his position and compiled his work with much care and focusing on the progress and experiences of the missionaries rather than the apostolic viewpoint, thus, a work of remarkable interest.Guerreiro?s section on Brazil occupies pp. 300-387, includes a summary of the discovery and settlement of Brazil, the type of resources found there, and the behavior and religious beliefs of the Indians, with a brief mention of cannibalism. He also describes the earliest Jesuit missionaries, giving their names and details of the murder of two of them by the Carijos. But what fascinates Guerreiro is the murder by Huguenot pirates in 1570 and 1571 of some 50 Jesuits en route to Brazil. Most prominent among the Jesuits was Ignacio de Azevedo (pp. 311-322), who had served several years earlier in Brazil and was returning there with 39 other members of the Company. While passing the Canary Islands their ship was captured by Jacques de Sores (the Exterminating Angel), a Huguenot pirate nominally serving under the Queen of Navarre who had become notorious for his sack of Havana in 1555. Guerreiro recounts the merciless deaths Sores inflicted upon every one of the hapless missionaries, for each of whom he compiled a 1 or 2 page biography. Particularly interesting are the comments by Sores, his crewmembers, and the crew and passengers of the Portuguese ship (pp. 373-7), which sound as if they were culled from an eyewitness report. Guerreiro also recounts the capture of a second Portuguese ship by the Huguenot pirates (pp.379-87); this time the pirates killed 12 Jesuits as well as the designated Governor-General of Brazil, D. Luiz de Vasconcellos.A. F. and Agustin Suarez sign the engraved title and coat of arms respectively. Alden-Landin, 642/65. Borba de Moraes, 380 ("much sought after and is very rare"). Rodrigues, 1169. Backer-Sommervogel III, 1913.

Jyske lov er Nordens ældste kongegivne lovbog og var gældende indtil den afløstes af Christian V's Danske Lov 1683; i hertugdømmet Slesvig vedblev den dog med at være grundlaget for den borgerlige retsforfatning helt frem til år 1900. I begyndelsen af Christian IV's regeringstid (1590) optrykte Matz Wingaard alle på den tid gældende love svarende til de 8 numre af denne bogs indhold. Den mest omfangsrige er Jyske Lov, som på dette tidspunkt havde vundet hævd på at gælde for hele Kongeriget og kongens dele af Hertugdømmerne. I Christian IV's regeringstid udkom flere hundrede enkelte forordninger og mindre love; nogle af disse blev i 1615 samlet i den såkaldte Lille Reces, og endelig i 1643 i et større værk: Store Reces. Peter Hake trykte Recessen og de andre på den tid gældende bestemmelser, herunder hele samlingen, som Wingaard havde trykt. Da behovet for lovtrykkene var stort, kopierede Salomon Sartor, Niels Michelsen og Jørgen Hantsch Wingaards tryk, så de i hele fremtoningen ligner 1590-trykene, også med det falske trykår 1590, men uden bogtrykkerangivelse. Niels Michelsen, der senere blev Norges første bogtrykker, har med stor sandsynlighed trykt småtrykkene på bestilling af netop Salomon Sartor; men han lavede ikke noget optryk af Jyske Lov, det gjorde kun Sartor og den tredie "trykforfalsker" Jørgen Hantsch. Sartors tryk er iøvrigt delvist trykt med materiel, som han overtog efter afdøde Matz Wingaard 1600. Bibl. Dan. I, 628-29. Thesaurus 168 + 427. Laur.

        The Holy State. By Thomas Fuller Bachelour Divinitie, and Prebendarie of Sarum

      Cambridge: Roger Daniel for John Williams, 1642 Book. Illus. by William Marshall. Very Good. Leather Bound. 1st Edition. [12], pp 1-122, pp 119-436, pp 436-441, [2] The first edition of Fuller's Holy State, bound as usual with The Profane State and printed in Cambridge. The seventeenth century binding is in full calf with five raised spine bands and a red morocco label stating 'Fuller's Holy State'. In an effort towards conservation, or perhaps a concession to fashion, a nineteenth century owner has covered the boards in printed paper with a wavy design on it. The binding is sound, with a little bumping to extremities and tenderness to hinges. The text block has speckled edges and internally the text is complete, with excellent impressions of the William Marshall's engraved portraits of Joan of Arc and the book's other subjects. The first blank, the engraved title and the following page bearing the Prince of Wales' arms all have a small triangle of paper loss to the lower outside page corners and worming in the opposite gutter. Interestingly the first blank is used by 'William Filsley' to record his ownership of the book in 1648 and the fact that he paid 8 shillings for it. The armorial bookplate of Sir Charles Mordaunt, Baronet, appears on the verso of the title page. The bookseller's invoice of Frank Hammond Fine Books (Birmingham) records that the book was sold from a catalogue to a clergyman in Cambridgeshire in 1954 for £7 15s. Although not his most popular work during his lifetime, Fuller's Holy State is now highly valued for the biographical account it offers of the many exemplary figures included, among them: Hildegard of Bingen, Sir Francis Drake, Bishop Ridley, Lady Jane Grey and Joan of Arc. ESTC R21710. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more information about this book..

        De originibus Americanis. Libri quatuor.

      - Ad 1: Alden & Landis 652/111; Borba de Moraes, p. 413; JCB II, p. 418; Sabin 33014; ad 2: V.d. Linde, David Joris 242; STCN (7 copies); cf. Mennonite Encyclopedia I, pp. 360-361. 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.

        Les antiquitez, histoires , et choses remarquables de la ville d'Amiens [Ensemble] Recueil de plusieurs nobles et illustres maisons vivantes & esteintes en l'estendue du ddiocese d'Amiens [.]

      Chez Sebastien Cramoisy 1642 - - Chez Sebastien Cramoisy, A PAris _1642, 2 ouvrages en un Vol. in Folio (22x35,5cm), 409pp. ; 441pp. (1), relié. - Troisième et meilleure édition, la plus complète, contenant l'édition du Recueil des illustres maisons du Diocèse d'Amiens avec sa propre page de titre à la date de 1642. Les deux ouvrages avaient paru dans des versions moins complètes, respectivement en 1621 et 1630. Le second livre porte l'emplacement après chaque nom de famille des armes qui n'ont pas été imprimées mais sont décrites dans la marge ; de rares exemplaires possèdent ces armes illustrées à la main en couleurs. Grande marque de l'imprimeur sur les 2 pages de titre. Première page de titre en rouge et noir. Faux-titre entre chaque partie du premier livre. Demi Basane début XXe marbré, pastiche d'une reliure d'époque. Dos à nerfs soulignés de filets à froid. Pièce de titre een veau rouge. Frottements coiffes, mors et coins. Le faux-titre général a été doublé et restauré en marge basse par une bande de papier ancienne. Adrian de la Morlière, chanoine de la cathédrale d'Amiens a rassemblé durant toute sa vie un nombre incroyable de matériaux sur l'histoire de sa ville. L'ouvrage procède sous forme d'articles et n'use pas de la forme classique mais sommaire de l'annale, mais les articles ont une évolution chronologiques, des romains jusqu'à l'époque contemporaine. On y distingue un catalogue des évêques d'Amiens, des Comtes et des gouverneurs ou lieutenants de la ville. Le traité sur les Maisons de Picardie renferment de précieux renseignements. Outre les éléments historiques, l'auteur a ajouté à la fin de chaque partie de nombreuses poésies de son cru. Bien que l'accent soit plus essentiellement mis sur l'histoire de la ville, on y trouve maints paragraphes sur les églises, les remparts et la description de la ville. "Quoique l"ouvrage de La Morlière soit mal écrit, il est cependant utile & nécessaire, & même assez rare" note Lenglet-Dufresnoy. Au lecteur d'aujourd'hui, l'ouvrage apparaîtra surtout désordonné dans sa première partie, mais plein d'enseignements sur la ville. 409pp. ; 441pp. (1) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
