        Imperaratoris Justiani Institutionum Libri IV

      Amsterdam 1647 - Justinien Ier (527-565) ~ Imperaratoris Justiani Institutionum Libri IV ~ A Amsterdam, 1647. I-18, vélin époque, 304 pp., frontispice. Le Code de Justinien, plus connu sous le nom scientifique de corpus juris civilis est la plus grande compilation de droit romain antique. Ce code est issu de l'ambition de Justinien Ier, empereur de l'Empire romain d'Orient. Celui ci souhaitait disposer d'un code de droit utile à son empire et fidèle à la tradition romaine. L'œuvre est à mi-chemin entre codification et compilation. Bien qu'ils aient repris les textes classiques, les auteurs ont su adapter des textes d'époque très différentes (théoriquement toute l'histoire romaine !), de la Loi des Douze Tables aux constitutions impériales du Bas-empire, pour constituer un ensemble cohérent, assez différent du droit romain classique, car accordé au christianisme. Cette œuvre législative prend une importance fondamentale en Occident car c'est sous cette forme reçue de Justinien que l'Occident médiéval, à partir du XIIe siècle adopte le droit romain, ancêtre de notre droit. Justinien était tellement sûr de la pérennité du corpus qu'il abrogea tout le droit antérieur, conféra une autorité équivalente à l'ensemble de l'œuvre, et interdit même tout commentaire du Digeste, " clair comme de l'eau de roche ". Vers 900, l'empereur Léon le Sage commanda la traduction de l'ensemble en grec, pour le rendre compréhensible aux juristes byzantins. Cette version grecque fut intitulée Basilica. Liber primus :I:1 De iustitia et iure I:2 De iure naturali, gentium et civili I:3 De iure personarum I:4 De ingenuis I:5 De libertinis I:6 Qui quibus ex causis manumittere non possunt I:7 De lege Fufia Caninia sublataI:8 De his qui sui vel alieni iuris sunt I:9 De patria potestateI:10 De nuptiis I:11 De adoptionibus I:12 Quibus modis ius potestatis solvitur I:13 De tutelis I:14 Qui dari tutores testamento possunt I:15 De legitima adgnatorum tutela I:16 De capitis minutione I:17 De legitima patronorum tutela I:18 De legitima parentum tutela I:19 De fiduciaria tutela I:20 De Atiliano tutore vel eo qui ex lege Iulia et Titia dabatur I:21 De auctoritate tutorum I:22 Quibus modis tutela finitur I:23 De curatoribus I:24 De satisdatione tutorum vel curatorum I:25 De excusationibus tutorum vel curatorum I:26 De suspectis tutoribus et curatoribus Liber secundus :II:1 De rerum divisione II:2 De rebus incorporalibus II:3 De servitutibus II:4 De usu fructu II:5 De usu et habitatione II:6 De usucapionibus et longi temporis possessionibus II:7 De donationibus II:8 Quibus alienare licet vel non II:9 Per quas personas nobis adquiritur II:10 De testamentis ordinandis II:11 De militari testamento II:12 Quibus non est permissum testamenta facere II:13 De exheredatione liberorum II:14 De heredibus instituendis II:15 De vulgari substitutione II:16 De pupillari substitutione II:17 Quibus modis testamenta infirmantur II:18 De inofficioso testamento II:19 De heredum qualitate et differentia II:20 De legatis II:21 De ademptione legatorum II:22 De lege Falcidia II:23 De fideicommissariis hereditatibus II:24 De singulis rebus per fideicommissum relictis II:25 De codicillis Lber tertius :III:1 De hereditatibus quae ab intestato deferuntur III:2 De legitima adgnatorum successioneIII:3 De senatus consulto Tertulliano III:4 De senatus consulto Orphitiano III:5 De successione cognatorum III:6 De gradibus cognationis III:7 De successione libertorum III:8 De adsignatione libertorumIII:9 De bonorum possessionibus III:10 De adquisitione per adrogationem III:11 De eo cui libertatis causa bona addicuntur III:12 De successionibus sublatis (.)

He taught school for some years but commenced professional poet when he moved to London in the early 17th century, where his first three books of epigrams were printed in 1606. In all, he published ten books of epigrams, which were unusually popular and enthusiastically collected by the cognoscenti of the `7th century book world.

        LE GLORIE DE GLI INCOGNITI O VERO GLI HUOMINI ILLUSTRI DELL'ACCADEMIA DE' SIGNORI INCOGNITI DI VENETIA.

      Apresso Francesco Valvasense. Venecia, 1647 - . 24 cm. Portada calcográfica precede a la tipográfica, [16], 432 pág. (sign. a-b4 A-3H4). Ilustr. con 2 grabados calcográficos a plena página (uno de ellos portada) y 106 retratos calcográficos de los personajes venecianos de los que trata la obra que preceden a los respectivos artículos. Frisos y capitulares xilográficos. Enc. moderna en medio pergamino, nervios, tejuelo, corte superior pintado. Rarísima obra que ha sido mayoritariamente atribuida a Girolamo Brusoni, nacido en 1610 (Michel & Michel v. 1 p. 222, también A. Belloni, Il seicento, p. 382), aunque hay quien la vincula a Giovanni Francesco Loredano (1607-1661, fundador de la Accademia) -Tiraboschi y Foscarini- y Giovanni Battista Moroni (Autori italiani del '600 n. 3607 y Melzi, v. 1, p. 465). Publicada a cargo de la academia por el "segretario", en el prefacio se anuncia un segundo volumen en preparación que, aparentemente, no llegó a publicarse. La Accademia degli Incogniti (Academia de los desconocidos) fue una sociedad de librepensadores, sobre todo nobles, que ejercieron una influencia significativa sobre la escena cultural y política veneciana a mediados del siglo XVII. Fundada en 1630, entre sus miembros se contaban historiadores, poetas y libretistas (entre ellos Giacomo Badoaro y Givoanni Francesco Busenello, que trabajaron para Monteverdi). A menudo utilizaban un lenguaje secreto para escribir y publicaban sus trabajos de forma anónima. La Accademia fue muy activa en la promoción del teatro muscial en Venecia y fundó su propio establecimiento, el Novissimo. Aunque a menudo fueron tratados de libertinos e inmorales, sus miembros fueron siempre respetados y ejercieron como senadores o consejeros de la República. La Accademia, pues, fue un centro de poder político no oficial durante décadas y su influencia sólo comenzó a decaer a finales de la década de 1650. Finalmente, se disolvió en 1661. La portada calcográfica fue grabada por Giacomo Pecini. Istituto Italiano per il Catalogo Unico IT\ICCU\TO0E\007607.

        A pair of prints of early-16th century Tulip varieties

      [Frankfurt or Amsterdam, 1647. A fine highly decorative pair of 17th-century tulip portraits from Sweert's 'Florilegium' The Dutch florist Emanuel Sweert produced his 'Florilegium' at the behest of the Emperor Rudolf II of Austria. Six editions were published in Frankfurt (1) or Amsterdam (5) between 1612 and about 1647. The present pair of Tulip prints are amongst the most beautiful of the images produced for the 'Florilegium': the flowers of 24 varieties are shown with brief explanatory text beneath each one, all beautifully arranged in ranks that echo the patterned precision with which they were grown by 17th-century gardeners. Tulips today are highly appreciated for the joyful range of colours and the elegant shapes they present in early spring. At the time when the present images were printed, Tulips were the main horticultural obsession. Their growing was essentially a pastime for the rich and powerful. The search for new varieties (particularly the bi-colour or 'broken' varieties) reached its zenith in Amsterdam in the 1620s and 1630s with a sort of 'dot-com' speculation and investment frenzy when individual bulbs fetched more than a medium-sized house. Cf. Hunt 196; cf. Nissen BBI 1920 &1922; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 13.546. Copper engravings, with expert modern hand-colouring.

        Sweet Bean

      - Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) Watercolor transfer print Paper size: 20” x 14” 31” x 24” framed This spectacular examples of Maria Sibylla Merian’s work are from one of a very few transfer-print watercolor volumes known to exist. Merian herself prepared the volume. After an uncolored print was made, she applied dampened paper to it, pressing by hand to create an image of the print in reverse. In this volume she chose to block out the plate numbers and then add by hand, to some images, numbers and notations. Merian then painstakingly watercolored the dried paper herself, ensuring that the colors were true to the specimens she had seen in South America, and also allowing her style to emerge with greatest clarity. The volume was not meant for sale, and its intended purpose cannot be known with any certainty. Perhaps it was created as a gift for a wealthy and important patron, perhaps Merian meant to keep it herself. What can be stated without a doubt is that these splendid images represent a unique opportunity to acquire original works by an artist who broke barriers as a woman, as a scientist and artist, and whose accomplishments are no less impressive today than they were in her time.
