      Govaerdt Schoevaerdts, Brussel 1644 - RARE VOLUME, published in Brussels in 1644. Full title: Het Leven Ende Miraekelen [Mirakelen] Vanden H. Philippus Nerius Stichter Vande Vergaderinghe Van Het Oratorie - Ghetrocken Uyt Verscheyden Zijne Beschreuen Leuens - Door Eenen Priester Vande Selue Vergaderinghe [OR Ghetrochen uyt verscheyden sijne beschreven levens-door eenen priester vande selve vergaederinghe]. TEXT in DUTCH. No illustrations. With a few woodcut decorative initials, & a few woodcut endpieces. Very scarce work, with Worldcat showing merely ONE LIBRARY holding a copy worldwide (Bibliothèque Nationale de France), which is the LATER 1696 Ghendt edition, & notes "La vie et les miracles de St. Philippe Neri" (The life & miracles of St. Philip Neri). "Philip Romolo Neri (1515-1595), known as the Apostle of Rome, was an Italian priest noted for founding a society of secular clergy called the Congregation of the Oratory. He was born in Florence, & received his early teaching from the friars at San Marco, the famous Dominican monastery in Florence. He chose to relocate to Rome in 1533. He cared for the sick & poor which, in later life, gained him the title of 'Apostle of Rome'. He also ministered to the prostitutes of the city. In 1538 he entered into the home mission work for which he became famous. In 1548, together with his confessor, Persiano Rossa, Neri founded the Confraternity of the Most Holy Trinity of Pilgrims & Convalescents, whose primary object was to minister to the needs of the thousands of poor pilgrims who flocked to Rome. In 1551 Neri received all the minor orders, & was ordained deacon, & finally priest. He thought of going to India as a missionary, but was dissuaded by friends who saw that there was abundant work to be done in Rome. In 1556 he began the institute with which his name is more especially connected, that of the Oratory. The members of the society undertook various kinds of mission work throughout Rome, notably the preaching of sermons in different churches every evening, a completely new idea at that time. He also spent much of his time hearing confessions, & effected many conversions in this way. Neri considered a cheerful temper to be more Christian than a melancholy one, & carried this spirit into his whole life. This was the secret of Neri's popularity & of his place in the folklore of the Roman poor. Many miracles were attributed to him. When his body was autopsied it was found that two of his ribs had been broken, an event attributed to the expansion of his heart while fervently praying in the catacombs. Philip Neri was a mystic of the highest order, a man of ecstasies & visions, whose greatest happiness was to be alone with God. Yet at the call of charity he gave up the delight of prayer & sought God by helping his neighbour. His whole life is that of the contemplative in action. Neri died on 25 May 1595, after having spent the day hearing confessions & receiving visitors. Neri was beatified by Paul V in 1615, & canonized by Gregory XV in 1622. His memorial is celebrated on 26 May. His body is in the Chiesa Nuova ("New Church") in Rome. Neri is one of the influential figures of the Counter-Reformation, mainly for converting to personal holiness many of the influential people within the Church itself." Small thick volume. Text in blackletter Gothic script. Laid paper. Bound in contemporary FULL VELLUM, raised bands, yapp edges, no external lettering. Covers with age-wear, front vellum ties partially torn (rear vellum ties complete), front & rear endpapers both detached (but present), old ink notation (dated 1772) to ffep, slight handling wear, otherwise a nice clean tight solid vellum-bound copy.

        Le parfaict joaillier, ou histoire des pierreries où sont amplement descrites leur naissance, iuste prix, moyen de les cognoistre, & se garder des contrefaites, facultez medecinales, & proprietez curieuses ... et de nouveau enrichi de belles annotations, indices & figures, par André Toll ...

Rare première traduction française faite par Jean Bachou et annotée par André Toll. C'est un des meilleurs livres anciens sur les pierres précieuses. De Boodt était médecin auprès du gouverneur de Prague. C'est à Prague qu'il s'est initié à l'alchimie et à la minéralogie. Son célèbre "parfait joaillier", paru d'abord en latin en 1609, est la première tentative de description systématique des minéraux, et des sels minéraux en les divisant selon leur dureté, leur taille, leur rareté, combustibles ou incombustibles, transparents ou opaques. Il utilise une échelle de dureté en trois degrés, et relève les formes cristallines de certains minéraux (triangulaire, quadratiques, et hexagonal). Il recense près de 600 minéraux qu'il a lui-même observé, en décrit leurs propriétés, les valeurs, les imitations, et les applications médicales supposées, et justifie l'action thérapeutique des gemmes. Il donne une liste de 233 autres espèces qui sont connues à son époque par les travaux de Pline et Bartholomeus Anglicus, entre autres. Il décrit avec soin les différentes méthodes de taille et de meulage sans oublier leur valeur économique. Son traité est illustré de gravures sur bois des différentes machines de polissage. Enfin il y a neuf chapitres sur les propriétés et utilisations de l'aimant et de la magnétite. ¶ Caillet n°1286 - Throndike VI. p.318 - Hoover coll. 147 - Sinkankas Gemology I.780 "by far the most thorough and complete up to date...

        Frauenzimmer-Gesprechspiele Bd. 4: Gesprachspiele, so bey teutschliebenden Geselschaften an- und außzuführen, vierter Theil].

      Nürnberg, Wolfgang Endter, 1644. - (38 [statt 40], 622, (78 [statt 82]) SS (ohne den rot-schwarzen Drucktitel). Mit gest. Kupfertitel (Fragment: nur die rechte Hälfte des Falttitels erhalten), 32 zumeist ganzseitigen Textkupfern, 9 Textholzschnitten (Handzeichen), zahlr. (teils emblematischen) Initialen sowie Noten. Pappband der Zeit. Qu.-8vo. Erste Ausgabe. Der vorliegende Band enthält auf S. 489ff. das sog. geistliche Waldgedicht "Seelewig", eine der ersten deutschen Opern mit der vollständigen Musik (vgl. MGG X, 12), da die Partitur der Schütz-Oper von 1627 verloren ist. "Beginning with vol. 3 the word 'Frauenzimmer' is omitted, presumably in order not to frighten away male readers [.] The wealth of content and the excellent appearance of the work have frequently been described. It was published periodically, though not at regular intervals, and may thus be regarded as the forerunner of a literary magazine. Subjects of all kind are discussed in the form of a free conversation in which six persons, of both sexes and different ages, take part. A great number of fine copperplates, some emblematic, others taken from contemporary life, illustrate the text, so that the work has become a treasure house for literary research. The opera 'Seelewig' is found in the fourth volume" (Faber du F.). Das Libretto zu diesem allegorischen Schäferspiel stammte von Harsdörffer selbst. Der Komponist Sigmund Theophil Staden wurde durch diese Oper und die "für Deutschland frühen Oratorien ein Bahnbrecher [.] Neun der 300 Harsdörfferschen Gesprächspiele enthalten Musik, ausschließlich von Staden. Nur 'Seelewig' ist durchkomponiert" (MGG XII, 1117). - Einband stärker berieben. Durchgehend braunfleckig bzw. wasserrandig; teils recht knapp beschnitten bzw. mit Randläsuren; es fehlen der Drucktitel sowie die letzten beiden Blätter. Am vorderen Innendeckel hs. Besitzvermerk des 18. Jhs. "J. B. Geschwendt", d. i. wohl der St. Galler Mediziner Johann Baptist Gschwend, der 1751 als Respondent einer Hallenser Dissertation ("De reliquiis variolarum, tam praeservandis quam curandis") nachgewiesen ist. VD 17, 23:234641E. Dünnhaupt S. 1982, 9.IV. Faber du Faur 502. Vgl. Jantz 1209 (nur Bde. 1, 2 und 8). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Widmungsgedicht mit U.

      [Wohl Rostock, 1644?]. - 1 S. Kl.-8vo. Widmungsgedicht in Pentametern für den aus Bunzlau gebürtigen Dichter und Orientalisten Andreas Tscherning (1611-59): "Cl. et eruditissimo viro Andreae Tscherningio poetae caes. laur. s. p. // Tscherningius ille, qui diu Parnassio / In monte vixit, musici mystes sacri / Frequens, amator pervigil mentis bonae [.]". Möglicherweise das Manuskript zu Huswedels Beitrag in der 1644 zu Tschernings Rostocker Promotion erschienenen Lobschrift "Acclamationes In Lauream Magistralem Viri Clarissimi Andreae Tscherningii" (VD 17, 125:018978A). Der hier verherrlichte Opitzianer Tscherning, der 1641 die erste deutsche Übersetzung einer arabischer Dichtung publiziert hatte, wurde anschließend in Rostock Professor der Dichtkunst. - Der aus Hamburg gebürtige und am Johanneum erzogene Huswedel wurde in Rostock Magister und studierte anschließend in Wittenberg und Leiden (wo er Joseph Justus Scaliger kennenlernte). Er wirkte in seiner Heimatstadt und in Rostock als Professor des Griechischen; wegen Konflikten mit den Hamburger Theologen blieb er ab 1628 vollends in Rostock. - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt; kleine Bugfalteneinrisse. Selten.

Il volume comprende anche gli scritti del Calco composti in occasione di matrimoni celebri:  Nuptiae Mediolanensium Ducum, Nuptiae Mediolanensium et Estensium principum, Nuptiae Augustae Quest'opera è nota come HIstoria Residua poiché comprende la seconda parte della storia di Milano del Calco pubblicata nel 1644 a continuazione della prima parte (Historia Mediolanensis in libros vigentii) che risale al 1627. Tristano Calco fu capo della biblioteca viscontea-sforzesca di Pavia, quando nel 1494 muore a Milano Giorgio Merula gli venne affidato il compito di continuare l'opera che il Merula stava scrivendo per ordine di Lodovico Maria Sforza; inizialmente il libro doveva dimostrare che la discendenza del Moro risaliva sino alla famiglia Visconti, ma quando il Calco prese in mano l'opera volle ricominciarla daccapo sicché da trattato sulle origini della famiglia Sforza l'Historia Mediolanensis in libros vigentii divenne cronaca dei fatti storici della città di Milano dalle origini fino al 1333. Quest'opera venne scritta contemporaneamente alla celebre storia del Corio, ma a differenza di quest'ultima, pubblicata nel 1503, l'Historia Mediolanensis non vide la luce fino al 1627, stampata su ordine del Consiglio dei decurioni di Milano che voleva dare inizio a una serie di pubblicazioni storiche sulla città di Milano.

Le maréchal de Toiras fut tué par une décharge d'arquebuse lors de l'attaque de la forteresse de Fontaneto d'Agogna, en Italie. (Saffroy, III, 49532 - Cioranescu, 10390 - Michaud, T. XLI, 637).

        Allegoria della Pace

      1644 - Acquaforte, 1644, firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Esemplare nel terzo stato di quattro, edito da Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "doppio cerchio e giglio", con piccoli margini, piccoli strappi di carta restaurati nella parte superiore, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera viene realizzata dal Testa quale omaggio al neo-eletto pappa Innocenzo X Pamphili, che nel 1644 veniva a succedere a Urbano VIII. La composizione del Testa è incentrata sul mezzo busto del nuovo pontefice, circondato da putti inneggianti alla Pace, uno dei quali porge una corona d’alloro al dio Tevere, seduto in maniera classica in primo piano sulla destra. La presenza della colombo e dell’olivo, simboli di pace, nello stemma dei Pamphili si prestano a celebrare il ritorno alla quiete dopo i lunghi anni della disastrosa guerra di Castro, negli ultimo periodo del papato di Urbano VIII. Bibliografia: Bartsch 31; Bellini 25 III/IV. Dimensioni 425x390. Etching, 1644, signed on lower centre plate. Example in the third state of four, published by Giovanni Giacomo de Rossi. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with "double circle and fleur-de-lis" watermark, small margins, small tears perfectly repaired on upper part, in very good condition. Testa realized this work to pay homage to the brand-new pope Innocenzo X Pamphili, who was succeeding Urbano VIII in 1644. The composition has been realized around the bust of the new pope, surrounded by putti celebrating Peace; one of them offers a laurel wreath to the god Tiber, who’s sitting on the right side, in the foreground. The dove and the olive tree, both symbols of peace, in the coat-of-arms of the Pamphili family, both celebrate the return of calm, after the Castro war under pope Urbano VIII.

Avec l’accord de Gassendi, Sorbière recueillit sous ce titre de ‘Disquisitio metaphysica’, les pièces de la polémique contre Descartes: ‘Dubitationes’ et ‘Instantiae’ (cf. Pintard, ‘Libertinage érudit’, p. 346). "La critique la plus systématique jamais entreprise de la métaphysique de Descartes. Insatisfait des réponses apportées par ce dernier, Gassendi soumet chaque page du texte des six ‘Méditations métaphysiques’ à ses "doutes" et "instances", passant l’ensemble de la métaphysique cartésienne au crible d’un matérialisme subtil et cohérent, enrichi des avancées scientifiques de son siècle. La ‘Disquisitio’ se présente ainsi comme la première confrontation radicale entre la tradition matérialiste et le dualisme moderne établi par Descartes ( ). Il formule pour la première fois l’antinomie qui gouverne tout le développement de la métaphysique moderne, et qui continue, sous des formes nouvelles, d’occuper les philosophes aujourd’hui" (Bernard Rochot, Ed. Vrin). L’éditeur, Joan Blaeu à Amsterdam, joint en tête de volume le texte même de Descartes: ses ‘Meditationes de prima philosophia’ en troisième édition. (Guibert, ‘Descartes’, p. 45-46. Tchemerzine-Scheler, II, 782). Bel exemplaire, frais, dans sa première reliure de vélin souple. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Amsterdam. 1644. - Three parts bound in one volume. [8],160,[8],13- 147,[90]pp. Three engraved titlepages, portrait of Linschoten, and thirty (of thirty-six) double-page plates (several folding), all in handsome original color. Folio. Old boards, skillfully rebacked in calf, retaining original leather labels. Some marginal waterstaining, some browning to text leaves, plates clean, one plate trimmed. Overall very good. Lacks the maps. A later edition of one of the great classics of early travel literature, originally issued in 1596. The first part, the ITINERARIUM., relates Linschoten's experiences during more than a decade in the East Indies before returning to Holland to write his book. This is the best account for that era of the sailing routes to the East Indies and the Portuguese establishments in India, the Spice Islands, and southeast Asia. From the time of its publication until the end of the next century, Linschoten was an essential aid to navigators in the east Indies, and his book made him "the leading geographical figure in Renaissance Holland" (Penrose). Linschoten wrote three separate works, the first being described above. The three are always found together, although they have separate titlepages and paginations in all editions. The second section, entitled REYS- GHESCHRIFT VAN DE NAVIGATIEN DER PORTUGALOYSERS IN ORIENTEN.ALS OOK VAN DE GANTSCHE CUSTEN VAN BRASILIEN.ITEM VAN'T VASTE LAND ENN DIE VOOR EYLANDEN LAS ANTILAS GHENAEMT, VAN SPAENSCH INDIEN, provides sailing directions for the East Indies, as well as for Brazil and the West Indies. The third section, BESCHRIJVINGE VANDE GANTSCHE CUSTE VAN GUINEA.EN TEGEN OVER DE CABO DE S. AUGUSTIJN IN BRASILIEN., describes the coast of Africa and South Atlantic navigation, as well as Brazil. All parts contain information concerning America, although most of it is concentrated in the second and third parts. Chronologically, this is the next to last edition of Linschoten, the final one appearing in 1663. This copy, while lacking the maps and several plates, is interesting due to its handsome contemporary coloring of the plates, all illustrating scenes in the East Indies.

        De Historia Plantarum libri decem, Graece et Latine.

      In quibus textum Graecum variis lectionibus, emendationibus, huilcorum supplementis: ... item rariorum plantarum iconibus illustravit Ioannes Bodaeus à Stapel ... accesserunt Iulii Caesaris Scaligeri ... Amstelodami, E. Laurentium, 1644. Folio (350 x 220mm). pp. (20), 1187, (1, blank), (87, index), (1, blank), with 1 engraved title-page and 675 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spine in 7 compartments with red gilt lettered label (old repair to spine). A fine copy of the best edition of this famous work, edited by Joannes Bodaeus Van Stapel. "It is interesting not only because of the brilliance of the editing, but, curiously enough, to the American botanist as well, for involving in the discussion certain species from Virginia, other parts of the world, and Asia. The illustrations of these plants have been largely overlooked in botanical history, because of their incidental presence in a work which might not be expected to contain anything of the sort. Some were merely borrowed from l'Ecluse or de Lobel, but others seem original in this work" (H.H. Barlett in 'Fifty-five Rare Books' quoted by Hunt). Theophrastus (the father of Botany) c. 374-c. 286 B.C., was the first to study plants in a scientific way. He gives the clearest and most accurate description of germinating seeds before Malpighi in the seventeenth century.//The 'Historia Plantarum' has a great South African interest as it incorporates four pages devoted to ten South African plants, including a Stapelia, drawn by Justus Heurnius. He was at the Cape in April 1624 on his way to Batavia as a missionary. (See Gunn & Codd. Botanical Exploration of South Africa, pages 21 and 22). Heurnius is the earliest known collector of South African plants. Some insignificant tiny worming at the lower margin, not affecting text of the first 50 leaves.//Hunt 240; Nissen BBI, Suppl. 1947nc.

        Tristani Chalci Mediolanensis historiographi, Residua. E bibliotheca patricij nobilissimi, Lucii Hadriani Cottae, nunc primo prodeunt in lucem, studio et opera Ioannis Petri Puricelli, . qui suos etiam illis indices & epitomas adiecit

      Ioannem-Baptistam & Iulium-Caesarem, Malatestas, Mediolani 1644 - In-folio, (44),120,(1), bella marca tipografica incisa in rame al frontespizio, fregi e capilettera in xilografia. Bella legatura del secolo sucessivo in piena pelle nocciola, ai piatti cornice in oro a motivi floreali e geometrici, al dorso fregi a reticolato, due bracieri stile impero e un'ape il tutto in oro, titolo su tassello. Ottimo esemplare assai fresco e ad ampi margini. Nel marzo del 1494, era morto a Milano Giorgio Merula. Questi aveva ricevuto da Lodovico Maria Sforza l'incarico di redigere una storia dei Visconti. L'opera era rimasta, alla morte dell'autore, interrotta al 1339. Al C., fu affidato l'incarico ufficiale di continuare la narrazione del Merula. Una volta iniziato il lavoro, egli rinunciò però a continuare il testo dell'Alessandrino, secondo l'incarico ricevuto, ma volle ricominciare l'opera dall'inizio, trasformandola da storia di una famiglia in storia di una regione e di uno Stato. La Historia va dalle origini di Milano al 1322 ed è divisa in 22 libri. Il C. non vide pubblicata la sua opera, che fu edita a Milano soltanto nel 1627, con il titolo Tristani Calchi mediolanensis Historiae patriae libri viginti, stampata dalla tipografia Malatesta. Nel 1644 Giov. Pietro Puricelli dava alle stampe i Tristani Chalci mediolanensis historiographi Residua, che costituivano una vera e propria appendice alla collana di cui si è detto, che si era fermata al secondo volume. Venivano così alla luce i due ultimi libri delle Historiae, le Nuptiae Mediolanensium Ducum, le Nuptiae Mediolanensium et Estensium Principum e le Nuptiae Augustae, di cui l'editore aveva rinvenuto nella biblioteca di Lucio Adriano Cotta i manoscritti, poi donati all'Ambrosiana.
