        HALLANDIA NOVA ET ACCURATA DESCRIPTIO’. Detailed map of Halland on the West coast of Sweden between Göteborg and Helsingborg.

      Nicolaas Visscher ca. 1650 - 44x52cm. Figurative cartouche and scale of miles. Uncoloured. Excellent condition. This is an apparently unrecorded Visscher map, separately published, not appearing in any of the Visscher atlases. The map is identical to an Allard map of the same title. Koeman lists a Covens & Mortier composite atlas (C&M 11/488) which contains a map with the title "Hallandia apud Covens & Mortier", and the Library of Congress has a nine volume Covens & Mortier atlas (#3448 Vol.3/73) with a "Hallandia Nova et Accurata Descriptio" map without the Visscher address below the title. - A rare map, and one of the few devoted to Halland and north Schonen, held as Danish until 1645 when it was claimed by Sweden.

(17) (1bc.) ; (8) 173pp. (5), relié. - first edition of the car works and second edition of New works. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Seconde édition des Oeuvres (et première chez Courbe qui venait de récupérer le privilège) de Voiture et édition originale des Nouvelles oeuvres. Deux vignettes de titre par Picart. Un beau portrait par Champaigne. Reliure en plein veau écailles du XVIIIe. Dos à nerfs joliment orné de fleurons et d'étoiles, roulette en queue. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge. Triple filet d'encadrement su les plats. Dentelle intérieure. Tranches marbrées. Restaurations fines en coins et coiffes. Frottements. Premier feuillets jaunis avec petites mouillures marginales. Larges jaunissures sur les feuillets préliminaires des Nouvelles oeuvres. Voiture (1597-1648) fut toute sa vie un galant et un courtisan, brillant dans les salons et jouant aux jeux. Son talent épistolaire lui valut de mettre longtemps en France la prose à la mode, et ses poésies excellent dans le ton maniériste et précieux, même s'il sait tour à tour être trivial quand il le faut. C'est un personnage incontournable de la scène littéraire du début du XVIIe, un vrai personnage de Molière. Voiture, c'est tout d'abord un style, non seulement dans ses lettres (Lettres amoureuses) et ses poésies mais également dans sa prose, voir pour exemple les délicieuses Métamorphoses. Ses œuvres furent à l'image de l'homme, galant, enseignant le beau langage et les belles manières aux habitués de l'hôtel de Rambouillet. Sa renommée fut très grande durant son siècle et il demeure un emblème pour le XVIIème siècle.

        Pisgah-Sight of Palestine

      1650. FULLER, Thomas.A Pisgah-Sight of Palestine and the Confines Thereof, with the History of the Old and New Testament acted thereon.London: John Williams, 1650.First edition of this classic work, with engraved title page, engraved armorial plate, large detailed folding map of Palestine on two sheets, 20 double-page maps—including one of Jerusalem—and seven double-page plates. A very nice, crisp copy in contemporary calf boards.Fuller's work is noted for the splendid maps of the Holy Land, elaborately detailed with vignettes, emblems and scenes. "This curious and singular work is not a mere geographical work, but contains many things relating to Jewish antiquities, and to the manners and customs of the people" (Lowndes, 848). "Pisgah-Sight is one of the great books on the topography of the Holy Land" (Maps of the Holy Land, 130). Based on printed sources rather than actual travel, Fuller's great work reflects the European interest at the time in the topography of the Holy Land, as well as the Ark of the Covenant, the Tabernacle, and the Temple, all presumably of divine origin.Wing F2455. Gibson SVIII:1. Cox I:208.A few minor expert paper repairs to a few folding plates and plans. Pastedowns present but unstuck; strips of vellum cut from a charter of Richard II used to reinforce hinges. Light rubbing to corners and spine head. Internally very fine and crisp, an excellent and desirable copy in sound and attractive contemporary calf boards.

        Messe e motetti à 4. voci together with Salmi a 4 voci. Complete set of 5 manuscript partbooks for each work: canto, alto, tenore, basso, and organo (basso continuo). Ca. 1650-70

      5 volumes. Large quarto (ca. 285 x 223 mm). Contemporary carta rustica. All parts [18] pp. 1f. (ruled but without notation). Notated in black ink on paper with 10 rastrum-drawn staves per page. Partially uncut. Watermark at inner margins featuring flower on a four-leaved stem extending vertically from a hand. Each book contains the following pieces set to music: 2 Kyries, Glorias, and Credos, from two incomplete Mass Ordinaries; followed by the motets Omnes gentes, Properate mortales, Cantate Angeli, "Si quaeris miracula mors, Filii hominum, usquequo gravi corde?, and O mira o magna o nova o rara. Basso continuo part with customary figures, as well as textual and vocal cues. Manuscript note of attribution or ownership to upper wrapper of canto part: "Del S.r Carlo Steffano Brambilla." Executed in the hand of one principal scibe, each volume with texts of first page (Kyrie and the first part of the Gloria) in a second hand. Several staves of music and text in Omnes gentes and Properate mortales crossed out, "probably by a hand later than that of the original scribe," and which "seem to reflect post-compositional or performance decisions" (Robert L. Kendrick). Page 10 of organo (Properate mortales) with oblong strip of paper laid down over one line of text and music, with revised notation. Occasional small erasures, corrections, and notation extending into outer margins. Wrappers with minor dampstaining. Edges slightly worn, creased and cockled; occasional light foxing, scattered molding, and soiling, not affecting music; endpapers slightly trimmed along outer edges. "The Masses are both lacking the Sanctus and Agnus Dei. However, in mid-[seventeenth]-century Italy, these movements were normally set in a short (almost perfunctory) way, and the number of blank staves at the end of each Ordinary suggests that the scribe left room for brief settings to be added later (which did not happen)... The motets are on texts for typical feasts... Properate mortales is for Corpus Christi and possibly the Elevation of the Host at Mass; and the Si quaeris miraculat is a Responsory for the feast of St. Anthony of Padua (June 14)." Robert L. Kendrick. Together with: Anon. Salmi a 4 voci. Complete set of 5 partbooks for canto, alto, tenore, basso, and organo (basso continuo). Ca. 1650-70. 5 vols. Large quarto (ca. 285 x 223 mm). Contemporary carta rustica. Canto, alto, tenore, and basso [16] pp. (one page blank) each; organo 12 pp. Notated in black ink on paper with 10 rastrum-drawn staves per page. Partially uncut. Watermark at inner margins featuring flower on a four-leaved stem extending vertically from a hand. Each book contains the following pieces for the Divine Hour of Vespers set to music: the versicle Deus in adjutorium/Domine ad adiuvandum me (two different settings); the psalms Dixit Dominus (two different settings), Confitebor tibi Domine, Beatus vir, Laudate pueri (two different settings), Laudate Dominum, Laetatus sum in his quae dicta sunt mihi, Nisi Dominus; and the Magnificat canticle. Basso continuo part with customary figures, as well as textual and vocal cues. Occasional erasures, corrections, and notation extending into outer margins. Executed in the same hand of the principal scribe of the Messe e motetti à 4. voci described above. Wrappers with light to moderate dampstaining and occasional slight loss to spine; upper of basso part with numerous marks in black along outer edge; alto part partially detached; slight loss to upper corner of canto part slightly affecting music. Outer leaves of several parts slightly dampstained at inner margins not affecting legibility; occasional light bleeding, staining, and wear; final leaves trimmed at right edge. "These partbooks contain the five psalms of the so- called 'male cursus'... for Vespers of male saints and some other major feasts... plus two others need for the 'female cursus' for many of the Marian feasts and female saints. The final psalm of the latter, Lauda Jerusalem (Ps. 147), is lacking, but again here a significant amount of space seems to have been left for a setting of the text to be added later. This would have provided a complete five-Psalm group for many feasts in church's year... Stylistically, the music, with its homophonic declamatory verses/sections intermingled with more florid sections for small ensembles, seems typical of mid-Seicento concertato sacred music... " "The scoring also is actually a bit uncommon, if we think of the post- 1650 repertory, in which (at least in printed editions) psalm settings were for a changeable number of voices (from two to fives)." Kurzman and Schnoebelen, A Catalogue of Mass, Office and Holy Week Music... as well as the searchable database printed-sacred-music.org list only a few collections for four voices plus continuo. "This unvaried scoring again suggests use or origin for a given ensemble, probably without access to hiring outside singers (e.g. in a provincial cathedral or an urban church with limited resources)." Robert L. Kendrick. . All pieces apparently unpublished, perhaps unica. Not in RISM online. Undated, but Italian (Vigevano?) and from the second half of the 17th century. Watermark unlocated in any of the standard references. Carlo Steffano Brambilla (fl. 1650) may have been the composer of at least some of the masses, motets, and psalm settings in the present manuscripts. Only one other piece by him is known to exist: a Concerto à due voci, entitled "Fugiant nubila," which appears in Giovanni Battista Beria's Concerti musicali à due, tre e quattro voci, con una Messa à quattro concertata, et Introiti, Pange Lingua à quattro à capella. Opera terza. Milano: C Camagno vicino la Rosa, 1650. It is quite possible the Brambilla studied with Beria. As Robert L. Kendrick notes, "this was a typical practice for someone who was a student in order to have a composition published in his/her teacher's edition." Only two complete sets of the Beria partbooks are extant (Sibley Music Library at Eastman and Boston College). Ruth Watanabe: "Some Partbooks Printed by Italian Printers of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries," University of Rochester Library Bulletin Vol. XIII, no. 2 (Winter, 1958). RISM A/I/1 B 2028. Worldcat. A certain Carlo Stefano Brambilla, "Cancelliero, Ragionato, & Archivista" of Vigevano, also wrote a guidebook to the churches and history of his city, "La Chiesa di Vigevano," published in 1669, again in Milan, by "I fratelli Camagni vicino la Rosa" - presumably the same Camagni who issued Brambilla's "Fugiant nubila." "This Brambilla was a layperson (like the 'Sig.' of the partbooks), and his guidebook (p. 113) notes his own presence at a dedication in 1635; hence he was probably born no later than 1620. He also had some interest in music, as he noted polyphony on some nine occasions in his guidebook (e.g. p. 113), and recorded the cathedral singers (p. 80) as well." "Putting all this together, we might think of a possible scenario: there was only one person by this name, a non-professional composer in Vigevano, who studied with Beria in Mortara in the 1640s (the towns are approximately 13 km distant), and compiled his own settings for his cathedral thereafter. The translation of the body of St. Vitus to Vigevano in 1657 might lie behind one of the festal motets, and the Si quaeris miracula, normally associated with internal Franciscan devotion, might have been for the annual civic celebrations of the saint (c.f. La chiesa, p. 52). Vigevano had been devastated by the wars with France and Savoy in the 1640s and 1650s (ibid., p. 2), and the two collections present in this lot might have been intended to provide a basic liturgical repertory for the cathedral singers in the wake of destruction... It is also noteworthy that one of the [aforementioned] printed collections for four voices, Bagatti's Messa e salmi brevi, op. 2 (Milan, 1659) was dedicated to Attilio Pietrasanta, the newly installed bishop of Vigevano (in office 1659-1666), perhaps with the same intent. In terms of liturgy, Vigevano followed Roman rite from its founding in 1530, and so there are no traces of Ambrosian rite in these books, despite the city's proximity to Milan. In that case, the music might date from something like 1650-1670 and be related to Vigevano." Robert L. Kendrick. We would like to thank Professor Robert L. Kendrick of the University of Chicago for his kind assistance in the cataloguing of these items.

        Messe e motetti à 4. voci together with Salmi a 4 voci. Complete set of 5 manuscript partbooks for each work: canto, alto, tenore, basso, and organo (basso continuo). Ca. 1650-70

      5 volumes. Large quarto (ca. 285 x 223 mm). Contemporary carta rustica. All parts [18] pp. 1f. (ruled but without notation). Notated in black ink on paper with 10 rastrum-drawn staves per page. Partially uncut. Watermark at inner margins featuring flower on a four-leaved stem extending vertically from a hand. Each book contains the following pieces set to music: 2 Kyries, Glorias, and Credos, from two incomplete Mass Ordinaries; followed by the motets Omnes gentes, Properate mortales, Cantate Angeli, "Si quaeris miracula mors, Filii hominum, usquequo gravi corde?, and O mira o magna o nova o rara. Basso continuo part with customary figures, as well as textual and vocal cues. Manuscript note of attribution or ownership to upper wrapper of canto part: "Del S.r Carlo Steffano Brambilla." Executed in the hand of one principal scibe, each volume with texts of first page (Kyrie and the first part of the Gloria) in a second hand. Several staves of music and text in Omnes gentes and Properate mortales crossed out, "probably by a hand later than that of the original scribe," and which "seem to reflect post-compositional or performance decisions" (Robert L. Kendrick). Page 10 of organo (Properate mortales) with oblong strip of paper laid down over one line of text and music, with revised notation. Occasional small erasures, corrections, and notation extending into outer margins. Wrappers with minor dampstaining. Edges slightly worn, creased and cockled; occasional light foxing, scattered molding, and soiling, not affecting music; endpapers slightly trimmed along outer edges. "The Masses are both lacking the Sanctus and Agnus Dei. However, in mid-[seventeenth]-century Italy, these movements were normally set in a short (almost perfunctory) way, and the number of blank staves at the end of each Ordinary suggests that the scribe left room for brief settings to be added later (which did not happen)... The motets are on texts for typical feasts... Properate mortales is for Corpus Christi and possibly the Elevation of the Host at Mass; and the Si quaeris miraculat is a Responsory for the feast of St. Anthony of Padua (June 14)." Robert L. Kendrick. Together with: Anon. Salmi a 4 voci. Complete set of 5 partbooks for canto, alto, tenore, basso, and organo (basso continuo). Ca. 1650-70. 5 vols. Large quarto (ca. 285 x 223 mm). Contemporary carta rustica. Canto, alto, tenore, and basso [16] pp. (one page blank) each; organo 12 pp. Notated in black ink on paper with 10 rastrum-drawn staves per page. Partially uncut. Watermark at inner margins featuring flower on a four-leaved stem extending vertically from a hand. Each book contains the following pieces for the Divine Hour of Vespers set to music: the versicle Deus in adjutorium/Domine ad adiuvandum me (two different settings); the psalms Dixit Dominus (two different settings), Confitebor tibi Domine, Beatus vir, Laudate pueri (two different settings), Laudate Dominum, Laetatus sum in his quae dicta sunt mihi, Nisi Dominus; and the Magnificat canticle. Basso continuo part with customary figures, as well as textual and vocal cues. Occasional erasures, corrections, and notation extending into outer margins. Executed in the same hand of the principal scribe of the Messe e motetti à 4. voci described above. Wrappers with light to moderate dampstaining and occasional slight loss to spine; upper of basso part with numerous marks in black along outer edge; alto part partially detached; slight loss to upper corner of canto part slightly affecting music. Outer leaves of several parts slightly dampstained at inner margins not affecting legibility; occasional light bleeding, staining, and wear; final leaves trimmed at right edge. "These partbooks contain the five psalms of the so- called 'male cursus'... for Vespers of male saints and some other major feasts... plus two others need for the 'female cursus' for many of the Marian feasts and female saints. The final psalm of the latter, Lauda Jerusalem (Ps. 147), is lacking, but again here a significant amount of space seems to have been left for a setting of the text to be added later. This would have provided a complete five-Psalm group for many feasts in church's year... Stylistically, the music, with its homophonic declamatory verses/sections intermingled with more florid sections for small ensembles, seems typical of mid-Seicento concertato sacred music... " "The scoring also is actually a bit uncommon, if we think of the post- 1650 repertory, in which (at least in printed editions) psalm settings were for a changeable number of voices (from two to fives)." Kurzman and Schnoebelen, A Catalogue of Mass, Office and Holy Week Music... as well as the searchable database printed-sacred-music.org list only a few collections for four voices plus continuo. "This unvaried scoring again suggests use or origin for a given ensemble, probably without access to hiring outside singers (e.g. in a provincial cathedral or an urban church with limited resources)." Robert L. Kendrick. . All pieces apparently unpublished, perhaps unica. Not in RISM online. Undated, but Italian (Vigevano?) and from the second half of the 17th century. Watermark unlocated in any of the standard references. Carlo Steffano Brambilla (fl. 1650) may have been the composer of at least some of the masses, motets, and psalm settings in the present manuscripts. Only one other piece by him is known to exist: a Concerto à due voci, entitled "Fugiant nubila," which appears in Giovanni Battista Beria's Concerti musicali à due, tre e quattro voci, con una Messa à quattro concertata, et Introiti, Pange Lingua à quattro à capella. Opera terza. Milano: C Camagno vicino la Rosa, 1650. It is quite possible the Brambilla studied with Beria. As Robert L. Kendrick notes, "this was a typical practice for someone who was a student in order to have a composition published in his/her teacher's edition." Only two complete sets of the Beria partbooks are extant (Sibley Music Library at Eastman and Boston College). Ruth Watanabe: "Some Partbooks Printed by Italian Printers of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries," University of Rochester Library Bulletin Vol. XIII, no. 2 (Winter, 1958). RISM A/I/1 B 2028. Worldcat. A certain Carlo Stefano Brambilla, "Cancelliero, Ragionato, & Archivista" of Vigevano, also wrote a guidebook to the churches and history of his city, "La Chiesa di Vigevano," published in 1669, again in Milan, by "I fratelli Camagni vicino la Rosa" - presumably the same Camagni who issued Brambilla's "Fugiant nubila." "This Brambilla was a layperson (like the 'Sig.' of the partbooks), and his guidebook (p. 113) notes his own presence at a dedication in 1635; hence he was probably born no later than 1620. He also had some interest in music, as he noted polyphony on some nine occasions in his guidebook (e.g. p. 113), and recorded the cathedral singers (p. 80) as well." "Putting all this together, we might think of a possible scenario: there was only one person by this name, a non-professional composer in Vigevano, who studied with Beria in Mortara in the 1640s (the towns are approximately 13 km distant), and compiled his own settings for his cathedral thereafter. The translation of the body of St. Vitus to Vigevano in 1657 might lie behind one of the festal motets, and the Si quaeris miracula, normally associated with internal Franciscan devotion, might have been for the annual civic celebrations of the saint (c.f. La chiesa, p. 52). Vigevano had been devastated by the wars with France and Savoy in the 1640s and 1650s (ibid., p. 2), and the two collections present in this lot might have been intended to provide a basic liturgical repertory for the cathedral singers in the wake of destruction... It is also noteworthy that one of the [aforementioned] printed collections for four voices, Bagatti's Messa e salmi brevi, op. 2 (Milan, 1659) was dedicated to Attilio Pietrasanta, the newly installed bishop of Vigevano (in office 1659-1666), perhaps with the same intent. In terms of liturgy, Vigevano followed Roman rite from its founding in 1530, and so there are no traces of Ambrosian rite in these books, despite the city's proximity to Milan. In that case, the music might date from something like 1650-1670 and be related to Vigevano." Robert L. Kendrick. We would like to thank Professor Robert L. Kendrick of the University of Chicago for his kind assistance in the cataloguing of these items.

        1650 VALERIUS MAXIMUS MEMORABLE DEEDS & SAYINGS FULL MOROCCO LEATHER ROMAN EMPIRE TIBERIUS PHILOSOPHY

      DICTORUM FACTORUMQUE MEMORABILIUM 1650; Valerius Maximus; Amsterdam, D. Elsevir, 18th Century Full Rebound Leather; Latin Text; 6, 328 Pages; w2.6"xh4.7"; Extremely Rare!!! Great For any Latin/Philosophy Fan or Collector.  Great Gift Idea; Collectible Small Size!!!ATTRIBUTES:A Gorgeous, sleek full small red morocco leather cover design with wood grain surface, gold borders, ornate gold floral binding, gold gilding to cover/inner cover edges, gold page edges, marble end pages, with a Great illustrated title page and a few nice woodcut headings/initials, and a great read!!!SUMMARY: Factorum ac dictorum memorabilium libri IX ("nine books of memorable deeds and sayings", also known as De factis dictisque memorabilibus or Facta et dicta memorabilia) by Valerius Maximus (c. 20 BCE ?" c. CE 50) was written around CE 30 or 31. It is a collection of approximately a thousand short stories that Valerius wrote during the reign of Tiberius (42 BCE ?" CE 37). The stories are a variety of anecdotes illustrating how the ancient Romans lived. While the majority of the stories are of Roman life, he does have some foreign stories at the end of some chapters. Most of these are of Greek life and most of those are about Greek philosophers or famous kings.Several of the stories relate to moral subjects that parallel those in the Old Testament and New Testament. Valerius refers to his moral stories as "examples" that were to be used as moral guidance. Valerius' work on the preservation of moral values of the Roman Republic of the past was widely popular through the Age of Enlightenment, a literary life-span of some 1,700 years. People read Valerius' work for practical guidance in their everyday tasks for living a moral life. This work was especially used as a reference by writers and professional orators. BACKGROUND: Valerius Maximus was a Latin writer and author of a collection of historical anecdotes. He worked during the reign of Tiberius (14 AD to 37 AD).The style of Valerius's writings seems to indicate that he was a professional rhetorician. In his preface he intimates that his work is intended as a commonplace book of historical anecdotes for use in the schools of rhetoric, where the pupils were trained in the art of embellishing speeches by references to history. According to the manuscripts, its title is Factorum ac dictorum memorabilium libri IX (shorter title Facta et dicta memorabilia), "Nine Books of Memorable Deeds and Sayings." The stories are loosely and irregularly arranged, each book being divided into sections, and each section bearing as its title the topic, most commonly some virtue or vice, or some merit or demerit, which the stories in the section are intended to illustrate.Most of the tales are from Roman history, but each section has an appendix consisting of extracts from the annals of other peoples, principally the Greeks. The exposition exhibits strongly the two currents of feeling which are intermingled by almost every Roman writer of the Empire?"the feeling that the Romans of the writer's own day are degenerate creatures when confronted with their own republican predecessors, and the feeling that, however degenerate, the latter-day Romans still tower above the other peoples of the world, and in particular are morally superior to the Greeks CONDITION:Condition is Very Good.  Small wear to edges, boards darker/soiled in person/flash, old bookplate Edward Shipperdson, boards have slight bend inwards, small signature to top and bottom of title page, hinges/pages/text block are very good for 365 years old!!!

WITH HIS APOLOGIE FOR HIS VOYAGE TO GUIANA.BACKGROUND: Sir Walter Raleigh (circa 1554 ?" 29 October 1618) was an English landed gentleman, writer, poet, soldier, politician, courtier, spy, and explorer. He was cousin to Sir Richard Grenville and younger half-brother of Sir Humphrey Gilbert. He is also well known for popularizing tobacco in England.In 1584, Queen Elizabeth granted Raleigh a royal charter, authorizing him to explore, colonize, and rule any "remote, heathen and barbarous lands, countries, and territories, not actually possessed of any Christian Prince, nor inhabited by Christian People," in return for one-fifth of all the gold and silver that might be mined there. This charter specified that Raleigh had seven years in which to establish a settlement, or else lose his right to do so. Raleigh and Elizabeth intended that the venture should provide riches from the New World and a base from which to send privateers on raids against the treasure fleets of Spain. Raleigh himself never visited North America, although he led expeditions in 1595 and 1617 to the Orinoco River basin in South America in search of the golden city of El Dorado. Instead, he sent others to found the Roanoke Colony, later known as the "Lost Colony".The Discovery of Guiana is a book by Sir Walter Raleigh, who wrote this account one year after his 1595 journey to "Guiana", the Venezuelan region of Guayana. He also visited Trinidad. The book includes some material of a factual nature, but postulates the existence of a gold-rich civilisation on the basis of little evidence. CONDITION:Condition is Good+/Very Good.  Small wear to edges/boards, small name sticker Anthony Fair, Sotheby's ticket loosely inserted, small "w" on side of frontispiece and title page, frontispiece was trimmed on side or bound that way, pg 7 missing a little to side margin/no text affected, was some old glue to inner back hinge, last few ad pages sit/open a little off; rest of pages/hinges/text block are very good for 365 years old!!!

        Verdadera Imagen Que Representa El Transito Del Gloriosos Sn. . antiqua Capilla de la Ciudad de Santiago .'.

      - Kupferstich v. J. Coromina n. V. Velazquez, um 1650, 29,5 x 17 Das Blatt ist fälschlich als Jakobus aus Santiago de Compostela bezeichnet. - Es stellt aber Rochus von Montpellier (* um 1295 in Montpellier - 16. August 1327 ebenda) dar, ein Heiliger der katholischen Kirche, der der Legende nach auf der Pilgerfahrt nach Rom vielen Pestkranken half. - Als Rochus auf seiner Rückreise in Piacenza 1322 selbst mit der Pest infiziert wurde, wurde er von niemandem gepflegt. - Er empfahl sich Gott und ging in eine einsame Holzhütte im Wald. - Dort wurde er der Legende nach von einem Engel gepflegt, und der Hund eines Junkers brachte ihm solange Brot, bis er wieder genesen war und er nach Piacenza zurückgehen konnte, wo er weiterhin heilte, bis er dort die Pest besiegt hatte. - Als er wieder in seine Heimatstadt kam, erkannte ihn aufgrund seiner Verunstaltungen durch seine Pesterkrankung niemand, und er wurde unter dem Verdacht der Spionage ins Gefängnis geworfen. - Rochus dankte Gott für diese Prüfung und brachte geduldig fünf Jahre im Gefängnis zu, bis er starb. - Nach seinem Tod erkannte man ihn anhand eines kreuzförmigen Mals, das er seit seiner Geburt auf der Brust hatte. - Die Darstellung zeigt Rochus mit dem Hund im Kerker in Pilgertracht mit Jakobusmuscheln und Pilgerstab.

Binding Flexible full vellum time. Smooth back with respect to the posterior pen (dimmed) /. Crashed tail cap. First leaves with low folded right corner. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, rare, illustrée d'un frontispice, une vignette de titre, et un portrait en tête. La seconde partie est séparée de la première par un faux-titre. Traduction par François Charpentier, lequel composa également la vie de Socrate. Reliure en plein velin souple d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume postérieure (estompé). Coiffe accidentée en queue. Premiers feuillets avec le coin droit bas replié. Quelques cahiers légèrement ressortis. Deux parties composent cet ouvrage, le premiere est une biographie de Socrate, sorte de compilation basée sur tout ce que les auteurs de l'Antiquité ont écrit sur le philosophe, et mis en ordre ; la seconde est constituée par l'écrit de Xénophon : Les choses memorables de Socrate, soit Les mémorables, long ouvrage de souvenirs sur Socrate rempli de dialogues socratiques auxquels assista Xenophon lui-même. On pense que l'auteur rédigea le livre vers la fin de sa vie, celui-ci contient en tous les cas une charge plus nettement morale que les dialogues socratiques de Platon.

      Hans Hanssøn Skonning, Aarhus 1650. 4to. 332 blade (upagineret). Hver side med bred træskåret røskenramme. Samtidigt pergamentbind. Inskriptioner fra 1650 til 1924 på indersiden af begge permer. Første ejers (1650) navnetræk på titelbladet. Exlibris (Sigurd & Gudrun Wandel) på sidste blanke blad. Indvendige false svage.. Bibl. Dan. IV,246. Thesaurus 644. Danske Provinstryk 1482-1830 Ar 78. Velbevaret eksemplar af Aarhus-bogtrykkeren Hans Hansen Skonnings mest originale værk; som alt andet i hans produktion fremstillet på hans eget trykkeri og sandsynligvis på papir af egen fabrikation fra hans papirmølle syd for Aarhus. Eksemplaret udmærker sig ved, at samtlige ejere fra 1650 til 1923 har sat en inskription. De nyeste dokumenterede ejere omfatter Herman Lynge og Sigurd Wandel. Den første ejer anfører på indersiden af bagpermen, at han den 9. juli 1650 har købt bogen af Hans Hanssen Skaaning i Aarhus til en fordelagtig pris, under hvad bogen ellers plejer at koste. ** Den foretagsomme Aarhusbogtrykker er sandsynligvis selv forfatter til hele dette lange episke digt, det første originale danske (ti år før udgivelsen af Anders Arrebos skabelsesdigt), der er formet som en yderst selvstændig pastiche over Rævebogen. Dyreallegorien er tænkt som en kritik af samtidens sæder og laster, men er i al sin subtile handling sandsynligvis en satire over forholdene i embedsbogerskabet i Aarhus - hvor sandhed og retfærdighed har ringe kår, mens lasten fejrer triumfer. Efter al sandsynlighed er værket forfattet i had mod biskop Morten Madsen, der 1641 satte Skonning fra bestillingen som klokker ved domkirken i Aarhus. Med i billedet er også en skandaløs retssag mod biskoppens frue og hendes svigersøn, hvor det omtalte par blev beskyldt for utugt i bispegårdens have, som kunne følges fra glamhullet i domkirketårnet. Her kom Skonning ind i billedet som et muligvis noget malpropert vidne. Sagen gik bispefamilien imod, og Skonning kunne i 1649 genindtræde som klokker. Fornøjelsen blev kort, for i 1651 styrtede Skonning ud fra det omtalte glamhul, hvad hans bysbørn nok kunne se som Himlens straf for både det ene og det andet
