        Jesuiten-S.Maria aquila mystica, Sandaeus M., 1645

      Jesuiten-S.Maria aquila mystica, ,. S. Maria, aquila mystica, R. P. Maximiliani Sandaei apud J. Munich, 1645 - 489 Seiten Titel S. Maria, aquila mystica, R. P. Maximiliani Sandaei Autor Maximilianus Sandaeus (S.J., Le P.) Verlag apud J. Munich, 1645 40 Bl., 489 Seiten, Index, orig. Pergament, kl. 8°, 12x8 cm., gering gebräunt, wenige Seiten mit kleineren Rissen, ohne Textverlust. SANDAEUS (van der Sandt, Vandersant, van den Sanden) Maximilianus, SJ, Verfasser polem., spirit. u. theol. Schriften, * 17. (oder 18.) 4. 1578 in Amsterdam, aEUR 21.6. 1656 in Köln. - S. begann seine phiolsoph. Studien zunächst in Groningen, vollendete sie dann aber aufgrund der schwierigen Situation der Katholiken in Holland 1597 in Köln am Collegium Tricoronatum mit dem Magister artium. Noch im selben Jahr ging S. nach Italien und trat am 21.11. 1597 in Rom in die Gesellschaft Jesu als Novize ein. S. absolvierte seine theol. Studien am Collegium Romanum. Von 1605-22 lehrte er als Prof. der Phil. u. Theol. in Würzburg, danach, 1622-27, als Prof. für Exegese in Mainz. 1627 wurde S. Oberer des bischöfl. Seminars in Würzburg. Ab 1631 lebte er in Köln und war dort als Studienpräfekt und Direktor der marianischen Kongregation tätig. 1645/46 nahm S. als Delegierter seiner Provinz an der 8. Generalkongregation der Jesuiten in Rom teil. Er starb am 21.6. 1656 in Köln. - S. gilt als erstaunlich belesener und stark allegorisierender Schriftsteller. Seine polem. Schriften stammen aus den Jahren 1616-21, in denen er sich mit den Lehren der Reformierten in seinem Heimatland Holland auseinandersetzte. Seine über 70 Werke behandeln vor allem Themen der Spiritualität und Frömmigkeit (Maria, Passion Christi) sowie eine mystische Theologie. In seiner "Theologia mystica" beschrieb S. die verschiedenen Arten der Kontemplation und die unterschiedlichen Stufen bzw. Phänomene der Mystik. In der "Pro theologia mystica clavis" stellte S. ein Wörterbuch der Begriffe der Mystik mit ihren jeweiligen Synonymen zusammen, wobei er eine Fülle von Zitaten aus der Literatur der Mystik verwendete (Ps.-Dionysios, Origenes, Bonaventura, Theologia deutsch, Tauler, Ruusbroec, Johannes vom Kreuz, Herp, Ludovicus Blosius, Ignatius von Loyola, etc.). Die vielfältigen mystischen Erfahrungen versuchte S. mittels scholastischer Kategorien und Begriffe zu erfassen, systematisieren und verteidigen (vgl. seine Verteidigung Taulers gegen die Angriffe durch Johannes Eck). Die "Pro theologia mystica clavis" wurde für die Kenntnis der span. Mystik des 16. Jh.s in Europa äußerst bedeutsam. Erwähnenswert ist, daß Johann Scheffler (Angelus Silesius) sie als Quelle benutzt hat. - Durch seine "Theologia mystica", insbesondere die "Pro theologia mystica clavis" nimmt S. einen wichtigen Platz in der Geschichte der Spiritualität ein..

        Zootomia democritaea: id est, Anatome Generalis totius animantium Opificii, libris quinque....

      1645. Noribergae, Literis Endterianis, 1645. 4to (185 x 140mm). pp. (24), including an engraved frontispiece and 2 engraved portraits, 408, (34), and many woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, a bit rubbed. "The earliest comprehensive treatise on comparative anatomy" (Cole p. 132). "It is the first printed book to deal exclusively with Zootomy. It is exceedingly rare" (Wood p. 564). The beautifully engraved frontispiece illustrates the meeting of Democritus and Hippocrates. "The first crude attempt at comparative anatomy was made by Marco Aurelio Severino (1580-1656), whose 'Zootomia Democritae' (1645), antedates Malpighi, Leeuwenhoek, and Swammerdam. The woodcuts show the viscera of birds, fishes, and mammals, with some phases of their development, and slight as are the comparative features, the book is the only thing of its kind before the 18th century" (Garsison p. 252). Severino corresponded with many important physicians and scientists such as William Harvey, John Houghton, Thomas Bartholin, Ole Worms, Volckamer and J.Vesling. The second portrait is a beautifully engraved portrait of Severino, the first portrait shows Giulio Iasolino, a professor of Napels. Some browning. Provenance: Bookplate of South Library (1860), and small blind stamp on first 3 leaves. Wood p. 564; Nissen ZBI,.

Jahrhunderts, hier in der breitrandigen Folio-Ausgabe. Die spätere Ausgabe erschien in Quart mit verkleinerten Nachstichen. - "This splendidly produced edition of Spigelius' Collected Works was edited by the Dutch physician, Johannes Antonides van der Linden... The magnificent folio volume is illustrated with 117 anatomical copperplates including the 77 plates from Casserio's legacy, originally prepared to illustrate Casserio's 'Theatrum anatomicum', a great anatomical atlas that was still unfinished and unpublished at his death. These and the other plates added by Bucretius are the most important of the post-Vesalian period and among the finest produced in the seventeenth century... With Spigelius the great age of Paduan anatomy comes to an end. He was the last of the Vesalian line..." (Hagelin). "Of first interest are the plates of Casserio and the twenty plates added by Daniel Bucretius for Spiegel's 'De humani corporis fabrica'. In addition to Spiegel's work, these volumes contain Gaspare Aselli's 'De lactibus sive lacteis venis', with four engravings; William Harvey's 'De motu cordis', with a fine version of the plate illustrating the valves of the veins; Johannes Walaeus 'Epistolae duae, de motu chyli & sanguinis; and Linden's 'De monstrosis vermibus, observatio rara'" (Heirs). - Titel verso gestempelt.

Blindgepr. Schweinslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln auf 4 Doppelbünden mit 2 intakten ziselierten Messingschließen. Hs. Rückenschildchen- und Signaturschildchen. Dreiseitiger Farbschnitt. 4to.. Zweite deutsche Gesamtausgabe. Aegidius Albertinus' klassische Barockübersetzung enthält auch de Guevaras beliebten Fürstenspiegel "Reloj de principes", welcher außer Lebensregeln zu allen möglichen Anlässen "auch Vieles über Kinderpflege, Erziehung und speziell auch gynäkologische und kosmetische Ratschläge" enthält (Hayn/G. II, 704). - Der schöne Rollenstempelband zeigt innerhalb eines Bogenfrieses eine Rollenstempelbordüre mit den beschrifteten Wappen des Römischen Reichs, von "Neu-Österreich" (Bindenschild), Oberösterreich und "Alt-Österreich" (niederösterreichisches Lerchenwappen); unter dem Bindenschild signiert "H P". Haebler (I, 329, 5), der offenbar von einem fast zur Unkenntlichkeit beriebenen Einband ausgegangen war, vermochte die Bezeichnungen nur teils zu lesen und zu deuten und las das oberösterreichische Wappen als das Nürnbergs, "allerdings heraldisch recht falsch gezeichnet [...] Leider sind die Wappenbezeichnungen überhaupt etwas undeutlich [..., und] es ist alles etwas unklar" (I, 330). Innerhalb einer schmalen ornamentalen Rolle stehen die Plattenstempel (I, 89, II u. III) der Justitia (vorne) und Fortuna (hinten) mit schöner Hausmarke über dem Monogramm "HD". Das bezeichnete Stempelmaterial weist Haebler dem 1600 gestorbenen Nürnberger Buchbinder Hans Pfister bzw. dem 1582 an der Pest gestorbenen Wittenberger Hans Dietz und späteren "Wittenberger Fachgenossen" (I, 90) zu; der vorliegende Band ist somit ein schönes Beispiel für die Weiterverwendung der Renaissance-Stempel noch weit bis ins 17. Jahrhundert hinein. - Durchgehend gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig; einige Griffregister (das letzte ausgerissen). Einband stellenweise berieben, insgesamt jedoch von schöner Erhaltung. - VD 17, 23:000185K. Dünnhaupt, 236, 53.1. Goedeke II, 583, 42. Palau 110.076. Vgl. Faber du Faur 901.

        Lucii Cornelii Europaei monarchia solipsorum. Advirum clarissimum Leonem Allatium. [Amsterdam: Elzevier], 1648. [Bound with] Regnum et regia Plutonis. Sive de Inferni et inferorum laudibus. Dissertatio festiva. Auctore. Vincentio Mussa.

      . Small 12mo. Two books bound together. Full contemporary vellum. 1.) J-C. Scoti, Monarchia solipsorum. Second Edition. pp. 158, [4]. First printed in Venice, 1645. This second edition was printed by Elzevier. Pages are generally clean. A bibliographical note (listing several references) and an old ownership inscription - "ex bibliotheca Kripperdorfia" - are written in old hand on the front blank. The Monarchia solipsorum is bitter satire written against the Jesuits which, in its day, caused quite a sensation. The author describes a secret society of "Solipsen" (those who wish to govern entirely) understood to mean the Jesuits. The supposed laws, secret instructions and clandestine operations of the organization are discussed. The author's name is given as Lucius Cornelius Europaeus which is a pseudonym. Authorship is usually attributed to an ex-Jesuit named Jules Clement Scoti. Some, however, believe Melchior Inchofer (who's name appeared on a later edition) is the true author. The book also contains a dedication to the Greek scholar Leo Allatius by Timotheus Cursantius. [Willems 1648; Berghman 1535; Querard, Les Supercheries 789; Caillet 10067 - listing the French translation and the 1645 edition]. 2.) Vincentio Mussa, Regnum et regia Plutonis. Frankfort: Johannis Berner, 1646. First Edition. pp. 174. LACKS frontispiece. Small piece missing from fore-edge margin of title page - neatly repaired with paper contemporary to the book. Pages are generally clean. An essay written in praise of Hell. Only edition. Uncommon. [Rosenthal 2241; Graesse Bibl. Magica, p. 8; VD17 39:115241D; ] Hardcover.

        The Philosophicall touch-stone: or observations upon Sir Kenelm Digbie's discourses of the nature of bodies, and of the reasonable soule

      London Printed for James Young and are to be sold by Charles Green 1645. First edition Small 4to. pp. [16], 131, [1]. With the required imprimatur leaf (sig. A1) before the title. Bound in modern blind tooled full calf after early style. An old bookseller's ticket is preserved and pasted on the inside front cover. A miniscule institutional stamp is present on one of the front blank free fly-leaves. Interior pages contain occasional spots of mild foxing / staining / wear. A small signature is written on the title page above the word "observation." A pair of initials are written and crossed out in an early hand following the last line of text on p. 131. Bound at the rear of this copy are 14 unnumbered leaves (the final of which is soiled) containing a postscript and a table of contents to a completely different work. Alexander Ross (1591-1654) was Chaplain to Charles I and vicar of Carisbrooke. His "Philosophicall Touch-Stone" was an important refutation of the unorthodox Aristotelianism in Sir Kenelm Digby's "Two Treatises." Ross touches on many issues relevant to science and chemistry including the atomic theory of the ancients, the composition of matter and the nature of light. Ideas concerning magnetism, color and sound are also discussed [See Duveen]. D. Rubin's bibliography of Sir Kenelm Digby states that Ross's treatise is " Probably the first English discussion of atomism after Digby's 'Two Treatises.'" [Duveen, p. 516; Neville Library II, pp.392-393; Krivatsy NLM 9953; Rubin, Sir Kenelm Digby 221; ESTC R200130]. Hardcover.

        Les Histoires dÕHerodote mises en Francois

      Paris: Antoine de Sommaville, en la Galerie des Meiciers, & Augustin de Courbe, 1645., Paris - Small folio. original vellum over stiff boards, expertly recased with new head and tail bands, hand titled in brown ink on spine. . Vellum with some slight staining, spine with some dust soiling, pastedowns split at vellum wraps, else a nice, tall, crisp copy. Illustrated with engraved tile page in red and black, chapter headings and tail pieces. First edition in the French language. Some copies have the later title page of 1646 added, this copy does not since it was published in 1645. Herodotus (484 BC - c. 425 BC) is thought to have been born in Halicarnassus; he was at one time banished from his home to the island Samos by Lygdamis. He returned to Halicarnassus and participated in overthrowing the tyrant, however, he was not in favor with the citizens and left for Thurii, an Athenean led colony in southern Italy. He is thought to have died there.Cicero named Herodotus ÒFather of History.Ó His ÒHistoriesÓ first appeared about 425 B.C. in Athens, and translated from the Greek (Ionian) into Latin by Laurentius Valla in about 1450, revised by Heusbach in 1537; Aldus Manutius published an edition in Greek in 1502 in Venice, and thereafter several editions in Greek and Latin appeared: 1541, 1565, 1584, 1592, 1594.He wrote in Ionian, which is a different language or dialect from Dorian used in Halicarnassus. He is considered Òthe Father of HistoryÓ although he has also been referred to as ÒFather of LiesÓ for his subjective descriptions of peoples and events. Some of this is related to monies received or not received by Thebands, Corinthians, Athenians, etc. that he wrote about.When The Histories were collected, they were broken into nine parts, each named after the nine Muses with Clio, the Muse of History taking claim over the first book. The rest of the book follows what can be seen as a loose history of four Persian kings. The history of Cyrus takes up the first book, Cambyses takes up Book 2 and some of three which leads into the dynastic history of Darius whose reign fills up the books up to 6, and finally Xerxes caps of The Histories in Books 7 and 8. This is perhaps the most broad way to get an overview of the crafting of The Histories although Herodotus learned, perhaps from Homer, that this method is excellent for storing great variety and movement of many narratives. The Persian-Greek Wars provided some time-line thematic structure (even though Herodotus would weave backwards and forwards in time at point), but other thematic structure is to be found as well throughout The Histories. One such theme was Herodotus's view of the interaction of human action and its influence on historical causation, that of retribution and vengeance and that those who wrong others will see their payment coming to them. Another such theme is Herodotus's commonly held Greek belief that pride goes before the inevitable fall. This hubris is often seen in Herodotus's histories as the expansion of empires. - egs(dot)edu.

        PHILIPPICA PORTVGVESA, CONTRA LA INVECTIVA CASTELLANA. AL REY NUESTRO SEÑOR DON IVAN EL IV.

      - POR EL P. M. FR. FRANCISCO DE S. AGVSTIN de la Prouincia de S. Antonio. Año de 1645. EN LISBOA. Por Antonio Alvarez Impressor del Rey. In fólio de 25,7x17,5 cm. com [xiv], 287 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele. Exemplar um pouco aparado à cabeça. Inocêncio II, 322. ?Fr. Francisco de Sancto Agostinho de Macedo, celeberrimo portuguez, e varão verdadeiramente encyclopedico, na phrase de Barbosa. Foi natural, não da cidade de Coimbra, como este diz, mas do logar e freguezia de Botão, que fica duas leguas distante. N. em 1596. Professou primeiramente o instituto jesuitico, entrando na Companhia aos 14 annos; passou depois em 1642 para a Ordem franciscana e provincia de Sancto Antonio dos Capuchos; e d"esta no anno de 1645 para a da Observancia, chamada de Portugal, cujo habito conservou até o fim da vida. - Elrei D. João IV o empregou successivamente nas embaixadas mandadas a França, Roma e Inglaterra, no intento de ser por estas potencial reconhecido como legitimo rei de Portugal. Foi muito acceito ao papa Alexandre VII, que o nomeou Mestre de Controversia no collegio de Propaganda Fide, Lente da Historia Ecclesiastica na Sapiencia de Roma, etc.; mas perdeu depois a graça do pontifice, por não condescender com elle na emenda de uma palavra, que o mesmo queria riscada no epitaphio, que Macedo fizera por sua ordem para o mausoleu de um seu domestico! Passou então para Veneza, onde no anno de 1658 defendeu por tres dias as mui faladas conclusões de Omni scibili, e depois no de 1667 outras, ainda mais famosas, que duraram por oito dias, intituladas Leonis Sancti Marci rugitus litterarii. A Republica lhe conferiu as honras de cidadão veneziano, mandando collocar o seu retrato na bibliotheca de S. Marcos, e lhe deu a cadeira de Philosophia moral na Universidade de Padua, que regeu desde 18 de Dezembro de 1667 até á sua morte, occorrida no 1.° dc Março de 1681. Philippica portuguesa contra la invectiva castelhana. Lisboa, por Antonio Alvares 1645. fol de XXIV 297 pag. Como escresveu este livro contra Filippe IV de Castella, quiz imitar Demosthenes, que intitulou Philippicas as suas eloquentes invectivas contra Philippe, rei de Macedonia. ?

La première traduction française établit par Chappuis date de 1580.

Ouvrage fondateur de la psychologie, comprenant des observations sagaces d'une grande validité et non sans humour. Après la première édition, l'oeuvre fut en partie censuré par l'inquisition, et ne put reparaître amendée et augmentée posthume qu'en 1594. Il eut une immense influence à travers toute l'Europe, grâce à de multiples traductions; plus de trente éditions et rééditions dans les principales langues européennes sont parues depuis lors.

Good. . Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes. The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie.

This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 42A. [311] British Isles Sussex

        De dignitate & augmentis scientiarum libri IX Ad regem suum. Editio nova, cum indice Rerum ac Verborum locupletiffimo.

      Franciscum Moiardum et Adrianum Wijngaerde 1645 - Leyde, Apud Franciscum Moiardum et Adrianum Wijngaerde, 1645. In 12 de 10 ff.-749pp.-1 f.-36 ff., reliure en demi maroquin rouge cerise du milieu du XVIIIème siècle, dos à 3 nerfs ornés de fines frises dorées, caissons finement dorés avec des fleurs delicatement dorées, titre estampé et doré sur le cuir du dos encadré d'un double filet doré, surligné et souligné d'un filet doré, plat en parchemin teinté de rouge, tranches dorées, frontispice orné d'une gravure mettant en scène un vieil homme assis avec un grand livre qui aide un jeune homme à s'élever, intérieur frais, bon et bel exemplaire. La première édition de cet ouvrage fut publiée en 1623. Dans ce livre, Francis Bacon (1561-1626) expose une théorie du savoir et de la connaissance tout à fait nouvelle et originale pour l'epoque, et en totale contradiction sinon opposition avec les théories précédentes issues de la Renaissance. Celui ci ne prétend pas construire une Encyclopedie summae, mais au contraire, une anti-encyclopedie, en perpétuel mouvement et augmentation. Pour le philosophe, la notion de connaissance doit être, peut être et est en constant développement. Cette nouvelle réalité permet de faire une place importante à des matières telles que l'Histoire en général, l'histoire naturelle en particulier, et faisant partie de cette dernière l'Histoire des arts mécaniques. Cette nouvelle classification est une ré-évaluation empirique, expérimentale et technologique des realités. Ainsi, les divers champs de connaissances et d'expériences sont reliés les uns aux autres au travers d'un empirisme critique élaboré, fruit des nouveaux concepts sus-cités. Francis Bacon (1561-1626), célèbre philosophe britannique, fut un des esprit politique les plus puissants de l'histoire anglaise, après des études principalement juridiques, il recouvra les plus hautes charges du Royaume, devenant Lord Grand Chancellier d'Angleterre. Il est également l'auteur de: '' Sermones fideles, ethici, politici, oeconomici: sive Interiora rerum. Accedunt Faber fortunae. Colores boni & mali, &c.'' (1597), ''Novum organum'' (1620), ''Atlantis Nova'' (1622), ''Scripta in naturali et universali philosophia'' (1653). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. In 1645 the Fourth volume, "Le Theatre du Monde ou Nouvel Atlas, Mis en lumiere par Guillaume et Jean Bleau. Quartiesme Partie. " with a dedication to " A la serinissme Princesse Henriette-Marie Reine de la Grande Bretagne, France & Yrlande. " was published; preface dated 1 October 1645. This volume consisted of 58 maps with description of all the British Isles. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. Blaeu eventually updated and extended the "Theatrum" producing the "Atlas Major" in various formats from 9-12 volumes Koeman1, Bl 42A. [357. ] British Isles Channel Islands Guernsey Jersey
