Avila, Francisco de (1573-1647)?
Manuscript, 1644. [vi]+450+[1 blank]+19 index] pages. Duodecimo (6" x 4 1/4") bound in period vellum with hand written title to spine. Dedicated to Beato Luis Gonzaga. Original manuscript.<br /><br />The work is attributed to Francisco de Avila. He was curate or vicar in the province of Huarochiri of Peru, later curate at Huánaco, finally Canon of the Church of La Plata (now Sucre), in Bolivia. Born in Peru as a foundling (quorum parentes ignorantur he says himself); date of demise unknown. He was one of the most active investigators of Indian rites and customs of his time. In 1608 he wrote a treatise of the "Errors, False Gods, and Other Superstitions of the Indians of the Provinces of Huarochiri, Mama, and Chaclla", of which unfortunately only the first six chapters are known to exist and have been translated into English. It is, even in its incomplete form, an invaluable contribution to the knowledge of the Peruvian Indians and their primitive lore. In 1611 Avila wrote an equally important report on the Indians of Huánaco in eastern Peru, of which the unpublished manuscript. is extant. Such writings greatly mitigate the charges which the destruction of fetishes and other objects of primitive worship of the Indians have called forth against the Church.<br /><br />The manuscript was probably written to teach Quechua speaking children the use of Spanish. It is divided into three chapters: I. Declination and conjugations. II. Latin and Greek declination. III. Romance. Genres and past. The teaching is rudimentary for the treatment of the way to teach to children, and very eas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Odoardo Farnese, Duke of Parma and Piacenza (1612-1646).
Piacenza: December 1644., 1644.. Very good. - Over 60 words penned in an unidentified hand on 10-7/8 inch high by 8-5/8 inch wide creamy white watermarked paper with an attached integral address leaf. He sends Christmas greetings ("Santo Natale") to Marquess Francesco Capizucchi (1605-1678), the brother of Cardinal Raimondo Capizucchi. The letter is boldly signed by Odoardo Farnese with his abbreviated smudged signature. The letter has dispatch slits meant to accommodate ribbons and is folded. The Duke's armorial paper seal is attached with red wax on the address leaf. The text printed along the edges of the seal reads: "ODOARD. FAR. PAR. ET. PLA. DVX. V." There is some minor soiling with tiny holes at the folds. Very good. Together with a copper plate engraved portrait titled "Odoarde Farnese par la grace de Dieu Duc de Parme, pleisance castr. Seigneur Sabion Roncil, etc." The 6-1/4 inch high by 4-5/8 inch wide copper plate portrait, as measured from the plate marks, is engraved on 9-1/4 inch high by 6-1/2 inch wide creamy white paper. Titled under the oval image, a "fleur-de-lys" decorated shield topped by a crown is depicted at top left and the number "119" is engraved within laurel branches at top right.

HELMONT, Johannes Baptista van
Jodocum Kalcoven. 1644 1ed van Helmont Medicine Opuscula Medica Fever Pathology Plague Paracelsus Jan Baptiste van Helmont was an early 17th-century Dutch physician and mystic who made important and lasting contributions to pneumatic chemistry and the scientific understanding of gas. One of his most important medical works was published in 1644, the year he died, ‘Opuscula Medica Inaudita’. This book was a collection of Helmont’s treatises on stones, fevers, pathology, and the plague. According to Heirs of Hippocrates, “In this work, Helmont established his name as one of the founders of biochemistry, although some authorities believe that he is perhaps overrated because of his vacillations between mysticism and science. In any event, his discovery of digestive juices in the stomach and intestine, and especially his first use of the specific gravity of urine for diagnostic purposes, mark him as a man of no insignificant importance in the history of medicine” Item number: #10351 Price: $950 HELMONT, Johannes Baptista van Joannis Baptistæ Van Helmont, Toparchæ in Royenborch, Pellines, &c.

ENRIQUEZ GOMEZ, Antonio.
Rouen, Laurens Maurry, 1644. 4to, pp. [viii], 144; minute paper flaw in the gutter at the bottom of the first leaf, else a clean, crisp copy in contemporary limp vellum.Rare first edition, and the only edition to be published during the author's lifetime, of this Spanish dramatized version of the Fall.Segovia-born playwright, novelist and poet Antonio Enriquez Gomez (1601-1663), of Portuguese-Jewish descent, was originally known under the name of Enríque Enríquez de Paz. Forced into exile in France following allegations of heresy, he assumed the name of Enríquez Gómez and became secretary to Louis XIII. Gómez returned openly to profess Judaism a few years later while in Amsterdam. On returning to Spain, though, he fell into the hands of the Inquisition, was condemned, burned in effigy in 1660, eventually arrested, and died in prison.Gómez' literary affiliation was mainly with the dramatic school of Lope de Vega (to whose posthumous panegyrics he contributed a sonnet). La Culpa del primero pelegrino is dedicated to Marguerite of Lorraine, the wife of Louis XIII's brother Gaston. It is a versified dialogue recounting the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise. The theme reflects the synthetic role and efforts of marrano culture: Adam is the perpetrator and victim of the original sin of Christian doctrine, but his condition is described - in the title itself – primarily as that of the archetypical exile, a man banned from his land. Whilst critics have attacked the verbosity of his style and his indulgence in catalogues (enumerations of characters, of vices, sins, professions … [Click Below for Full Description]

Born in Bergamo, he came to chemistry late in life but quickly mastered the art, and travelled to Germany and France before settling in Milan, where he earned the reputation of 'a new Asclepius' thanks to his advanced practice of spagyric medicine and the dispensation of very effective chemical remedies. 'It is apparent that by the 1640's Paracelsian medicine had gained momentum in Italy and that iatrochemical theories were being adopted by a number of Italian physicians. [ ] In 1644 there appeared the first Italian translation from Paracelsus, made by the aforementioned Ludovico Locatelli, who included a version of Paracelsus' Erklärung über etliche Aphorismen des Hippokrates in his Teatro d'arcani. Unlike Bardi, Locatelli was a fervent Paracelsian; he espoused Paracelsus' medicine and philosophy, and explicitly rejected traditional medicine. Locatelli, who travelled to Germany in 1642, maintained that chemical reactions took place … [Click Below for Full Description]

The Savary's were an important noble mercantile family during the 17th and 18th centuries.

His son Jacques Savary des Brulons (1657-1716) began the Dictionnaire universel de commerce, d'histoire naturelle, d'arts et metiers, in 1686 but the work was completed after his death by his elder brother the Abbé Louis Philémon Savary (1654-1727) in 1723.

Odoardo Farnese, Duke of Parma and Piacenza (1612-1646).
Piacenza: December 1644. - Over 60 words penned in an unidentified hand on 10-7/8 inch high by 8-5/8 inch wide creamy white watermarked paper with an attached integral address leaf. He sends Christmas greetings ("Santo Natale") to Marquess Francesco Capizucchi (1605-1678), the brother of Cardinal Raimondo Capizucchi. The letter is boldly signed by Odoardo Farnese with his abbreviated smudged signature. The letter has dispatch slits meant to accommodate ribbons and is folded. The Duke's armorial paper seal is attached with red wax on the address leaf. The text printed along the edges of the seal reads: "ODOARD. FAR. PAR. ET. PLA. DVX. V." There is some minor soiling with tiny holes at the folds. Very good. Together with a copper plate engraved portrait titled "Odoarde Farnese par la grace de Dieu Duc de Parme, pleisance castr. Seigneur Sabion Roncil, etc." The 6-1/4 inch high by 4-5/8 inch wide copper plate portrait, as measured from the plate marks, is engraved on 9-1/4 inch high by 6-1/2 inch wide creamy white paper. Titled under the oval image, a "fleur-de-lys" decorated shield topped by a crown is depicted at top left and the number "119" is engraved within laurel branches at top right. Although the artist is unidentified, the engraving is attributed to French painter & engraver Balthasar Moncornet by Emile Socard in his "Catalogue de la Bibliotheque de la ville de Troyes".

(titre avec vignette naïve gravée sur bois, préface, argument), 173 pp., un f. vierge, 56 pp. [Dialogue entre deux gentilshommes volontaires des Ducs de Modène et de Parme].Brunet II, 774. Il existe plusieurs tirages à la même date de 1644, qui est celle de l'originale française (l'originale italienne est de 1643), sans qu'il soit facile de déterminer lequel y correspond. Dans tous les cas, l'adresse de Villefranche est fictive : comme pur nombre de pamphlets subversifs de l'époque, le nom est là pour faire comprendre qu'on a pu s'exprimer sans contrainte. Il s'agit là du dernier ouvrage de l'écrivain Ferrante Pallavicino (1615-1644 décapité à Avignon), largement scandaleux de son temps pour ses publications violemment hostiles à l'Eglise de Rome, à la papauté, et plus spécialement à la famille Barberini. Dans cette satire, c'est Jésus-Christ lui-même qui demande le divorce d'avec son épouse l'Eglise romaine, coupable de multiples adultères et fornications. Dieu envoie alors saint Paul pour explorer la cause, et ce dernier invite à accorder la demande de Jésus ... On imagine l'écho que cette pièce put avoir à la fois en Italie (où le texte se transmettait sous le manteau), et dans les pays protestants qui en firent leur miel

Martial; Jacques Auguste de Thou
Condition: Très bon état. Livre en latin. Amsterdam, 1644. Ce livre est relié en veau brun clair avec un dos entièrement décoré du monogramme IAG dans chaque panneau et avec les côtés parfaitement unis sauf pour le blason de Thou au centre de chaque côté. Il était probablement destiné à Jacques Auguste de Thou, troisième fils du célèbre bibliophile, appelé communément le second de Thou. Le monogramme IAG sur le dos sont composées des initiales combinées de ses père et mère et les armes du côté sont celles de la famille de Thou. Il fut le plus célèbre patron de la reliure durant la dernière partie du XVIe siècle. Fils de Christophe de Thou, premier président du Parlement de Paris, il hérite de sa précieuse bibliothèque contenant plusieurs livres à destination de Grolier, que celui-ci a présentés à Christophe, en remerciement de lui avoir sauvé la vie et l'honneur. Jacques Auguste était président du Parlement sous Henri IV, fonction que son fils occupa après lui. Il avait une bibliothèque de 8 000 volumes reliés dans une variété de styles. Il comprenait des reliures Fanfare de la période tardive dans lesquelles les spirales étaient abondantes et le feuillage élaboré et délicat; le travail en pointillé de Le Gascon à ses débuts; veau de couleur fauve orné de lignes dorées unies; vélin blanc estampillé avec des bras; et, le plus souvent, des livres recouverts de maroquins, de rouges, d'oliviers et de citrons, parfaitement unis, à l'exception de son excellent coût des armes. Ces bras varient considérablement à différentes périodes de sa vie, dans la succession suivante. Avant so … [Click Below for Full Description]
