Mit Holzschnitt - Titelvignette. Erste Ausgabe dieser Sammlung. Pergament d. Zt. (stark gebräunt, etwas fleckig) mit handschriftl. Rückenschild (etwas beschädigt). Die Bedeutung von Martin Opitz (1597 - 1639) liegt nicht zuletzt darin, dass er mit seinen Gedichtsammlungen nachweisen will, dass die deutsche Sprache die gleichen poetischen Qualitäten hat wie andere große Kultursprachen; damit leistet er einen ganz wesentlichen Beitrag zur Emanzipation des Deutschen gegenüber dem Lateinischen; zugleich legt er wichtige Grundlagen dafür, dass das Deutsche sich auch wirklich zu einer Literatursprache entwickelt. Seine Gedichtsammlungen verstehen sich als Muster; deshalb enthalten sie verschiedene Gattungen. Ganz zeittypisch orientieren sie sich an großen Vorbildern: Opitz war von der Lehrbarkeit der Kunstformen überzeugt, die "imitatio" von Vorbildern spie … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le Maistre, Antoine
No place [Port Royal]: No publisher/printer 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.25"). 2 parts in 1 vol. 106 pp., [7] ff., 199, [1] pp., [3] ff.. 1644 Port Royal and Jansenism are synonymous in the history of France in the 1630s and 1640s. Various members of the related Le Maistre and Arnauld families, including Antoine Le Maistre, were drawn to Port Royal for religious or spiritual reasons, Antoine's translation there from Paris having been due to his attraction to the teachings of Jean Du Vergier de Hauranne (abbé de Saint-Cyran) who had introduced Jansenism into France. Le Maistre (1608?-58) gave up a promising and young legal career, for he was not yet 30. Despite his youth, he had attracted the attention of Cardinal Richelieu who did not take kindly to his defection; almost coincidental with Le Maistre?'s arrival in Port Royal was Jean Du Vergier de Hauranne?'s arrest and imprisonment at the cardinal?'s instigation. The present work, published after Du Vergier?'s death in 1643, defends him against attacks by Jesuit writers. This is the second edition, published the same year as the first. This edition in 8vo format, the first having been in 4to. Evidence of readership: Early underlining, a few marginal notes, and other notes on blank pages. Searches of WorldCat and COPAC locate two copies in the U.S. and three in Britain. All located copies are in 4to format. Contemporary vellum over paste boards, a significant piece of vellum missing from spine (i.e., missing for a long, long time). 19th-century bookplate, light staining here and there, some age-toning; some soot-soiling to top edge and o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Strada Famiano
Apud Paulum Baleonium, Venetiis, 1644. In-8° piccolo (160 x 105 mm) pp. [14] 1b, 480, [32] legatura in piena pergamena coeva, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli spruzzati. Margine superiore piuttosto ridotto. Restauro al dorso, nel complesso buon esemplare. Quarta edizione. B. Croce, Storia dell'età barocca in Italia, Laterza 1929. Olschki e Cat Vinciana citano altre edizioni. Famiano Strada fu letterato, storico e moralista nato a Roma (1572-1649) . Entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù nel 1591 e per quindici anni insegnò eloquenza al Collegio Romano. Frutto dell'inclinazione letteraria furono questi scritti pubblicati a Roma per la prima volta nel 1617 con il titolo: Prolusioses et Paradigmata eloquentiae, più tardi ristampati, dopo attenta revisione, a Lione nel 1627 con il titolo definitivo di Prolusiones accademicae. L'opera é suddivisa in tre libri, nel primo prevalgono le considerazioni di ordine morale e politico; nel secondo si prospettano le varie maniere dello stile poetico; nel terzo, accanto a molti giudizi sui poeti antichi e suoi contemporanei, affiora anche una diagnosi del seicentismo, di cui lo Strada rivela con precisione alcuni caratteri. E' questa la sua opera più famosa insieme all'altrettanto fortunata De bello Belgico in cui lo Strada si allontanò dai comuni imitatori di Tito Livio per uno stile latino più moderno e vivace.

FARINATI, Paolo
30 double-page engraved plates, including the title, each on a stub. 8vo, cont. speckled calf, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: A. Bosse, 1644. First edition of this very appealing and handsome series of engravings by Abraham Bosse after designs by the Italian artist and draughtsman Paolo Farinati (1524-1606). Farinati's chiaroscuro drawings were often used as "modelli." The plates depict small cupids and angels (22 plates) and eight plates of masks. Paolo Farinati was a highly productive painter and draughtsman from Verona, whose paintings are preserved in many churches. "Farinati's drawings are held in high esteem and , according to Mariette...he was a gifted draughtsman whose compositions show the influence of Paolo Veronese, though he fails to match Veronese's expressiveness of light and refinement."-Benezit, Vol. 5, p. 474. Appended at the end are four additional plates from Bosse's Différentes manères de Dessiner et Peindre (1667) and the suite of four double-page engravings for his Les Quatre Éléments (1630?). These four are entitled "Lefeu," LAir," "Leau," and "La Terre." A very fine copy in fresh condition from the Macclesfield library. The engravings are richly inked. Early engraved bookplate with legend at foot: "This Book is to be sold by J. Groenewegen & A. vander Hoeck in the Strand." They were Dutch emigré booksellers who issued catalogues in London ca. 1723-24. .

Titolo entro doppia cornice, varie figure schematiche e diagrammi nel testo, tabelle e operazioni matematiche. Secondo il Riccardi è: "Pregevolissima operetta di aritmetica elementare" della quale il bibliografo registra ben 11 edizioni. Una è del 1586 che presumibilmente è da ritenersi la prima edizione. Non abbiamo trovato altri riferimenti bibliografici neppure su Michel-Michel, Autori italiani del '600, Libri e Sotheran. Per notizie sull' autore padovano, morto nel 1594, vedi: Vedova G. "Scrittori padovani" 1832-36 vol. I 238. Per errore del legatore, sono state posposte 4 carte della tavola dei capitoli, inserite all' inizio, ma l' opera è assolutamente completa. Qualche carta lievemente ombreggiata, peraltro esemplare bello, nitido e genuino. Raro così ben conservato dato l' uso pratico cui era destinato. * Riccardi I 288.[f48]. Libro. Book Condition: buono.

Knox, John [1505-1572]
Edinburgh (?), No date. (?). Hardcover (Half Leather) . Good Condition. This copy was rebound early in its life & is now in 1/2 leather, poor condition, covers detached, quite worn. Title page and preliminary section, 'to the reader' & Preface are missing about 12 pages. Evidence of considerable handling with edge wear and smudges, some close trimmed pages. On the front fly leaf is an inked inscription that this is the Edinburgh printing of 1644, which may be correct. Included is the "Appellation" & "Letter" to Queen Mary. An inked note on the fly leaf says this copy was given by Mrs. Laing, widow of Malcolm Laing, to 'J. B." in 1853. Since the inked name, Margaret Laing, 1819, is at the top of the 1st page of the Preface, this would seem to be accurate. Malcolm Laing [1762-1818] edited Knox's works and also published a History of Scotland. Size: Square 8vo. 76 + 458 +139 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 4 lbs.

It was Desmarets who initiated the lengthy literary battle known as the ‘Querelle des Anciens and des Modernes’ by declaring that the true models for modern French literature were Romance legends and the Bible rather than classical Greek and Roman authors.

Contemporary mottled calf (head and tail of spine slightly worn). Ward & Carozzi 254. First edition in French of Boodt's fundamental manual on mineralogy and gemmology. Boodt (ca.1550-1632), court physician to Rudolf II, 'made the first attempt at a systematic description of minerals, dividing the minerals into great and small, rare and common, hard and soft, combustible and incombustible, transparent and opaque. He usues a scale of hardness expressed in three degrees and notes the crystalline forms of some minerals (triangular, quadratic, and hexangular). ... He enumerates about 600 minerals that he knows from personal observation, and describes their properties, values, imitations, and medical applications. There are also tables of values of diamonds according to their size and short description of the polishing of precious stones' (Wlodzimierz Hubicki in DSB). The woodcuts illustrate crystals, gemstones, and a variety of cutting and polishing equipment.
