        Relatione delle feste fatte in Palermo nel 1625 per lo trionfo delle gloriose reliquie. Di S. Rosalia vergine palermitana. Scritta dal dottor don Onofrio Paruta, canonico della chiesa metropolitana di Palermo, figlio di Filippo. E poi perfettionata da don Simplicio Paruta monaco cassinese. E dal medesimo dirizzata all'illustrissimo Senato di Palermo

      4to (200x145 mm). Collation: [π]4 †4 A-T4 V2 X4 Y2 Z4 [χ]2. Half-title, engraved frontispiece, [12], 176, [4: errata corrige] pp. and [4] folding plates engraved by Francesco Nigro and Francesco La Barbera after Gerardo Astorino and Vincenzo La Barbera. Richly gilt modern morocco binding, original sprinkled edges. Minor restorations to the outer margin of the first leaves without loss, small worm track in the gutter of a few leaves not affecting the text, tears repaired along the folding of one plate, all in all a very good copy.EXTREMELY RARE ORIGINAL EDITION of this festival account attributed to Filippo Paruta, but edited by his son Simplicio, who also signs the dedication to the Senate of Palermo, and published posthumously under the name of his other son Onofrio.In the note to the reader Onofrio provides a detailed list of the works (orations, occasional writings, inscriptions for ephemeral architectures, etc.) of his father Filippo, who was the secretary to the Palermo Senate and the major responsible for the iconographic program realized on the occasion of the 1625 festivity.At the beginning of the 1620s the viceroy Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy rebuild the Accademia dei Riaccesi, which gathered in the Royal Palace, and entrusted the scholar and mathematician Carlo Maria Ventimiglia with the direction of the academy. Around his figure gravitated many of the artists and scholars who designed the program and the solemn procession of the relics of St. Rosalia, held in June of 1625 as a sign of gratitude for deliverance from plague. Among them were the painters and architects Gerardo Astorino and Vincenzo La Barbera, the engraver Francesco Negro, the scholar Martino La Farina, who conceived the allegorical arch of the Genoese nation, and, above all, Filippo Paruta, who was linked to Ventimiglia also by a common passion for numismatics and antiquities. Paruta was involved in all literary activities related to celebratory events since the end of the sixteenth century. In 1625 he inspired the triumphal arch that the Senate erected in Piazza Villena and was responsible for the account of the festivities, which however was actually published only after his death in 1651.The constitution of such a large and complex team to be entrusted with the creation of the apparatuses testifies of the importance of that event that officially marked the beginning of the cult of St. Rosalia. The solemnity of 1625 had no immediate follow-up and only in 1649 the feast of St. Rosalia was formalized with all those peculiarities that would characterize the following decades. In 1625, in addition to the impressive processions and solemn ceremonies to which all local communities, religious and civil, took part, two magnificent horse rides were organized; one, in particular, took place at the conclusion of the festivities, after the solemn mass in the cathedral. Then followed fireworks, organized by the German nation, tournaments and jousts. At the very end the nobility walked in gala dresses along Via Colonna (cf. M.

        Philosophicall Rudiments concerning Government and Society.

      London: Printed by J. G. for R. Royston,, 1651. Or, A Dissertation Concerning Man in his severall habitudes and respects, as the Member of a Society, first Secular, and then Sacred … Duodecimo (142 x 80 mm). Contemporary calf, spine neatly rebacked to style, compartments double-ruled in black, raised bands, boards ruled in black with triple-rule centre panel with floral corner motifs also tooled in black, red edges. S4 bound in after B8 as recorded by MacDonald & Hargreaves. Engraved title page and 3 plates, woodcut initials. A few neat pencil annotations to the text including a reference to Locke on page 224, small ink inscription to front free endpaper. Extremities a little rubbed, endpapers browned from turn-ins, small puncture to upper margin of E2 and nick to upper edge of O3, minor loss to fore edge of R1 not affecting text, overall a very good copy with very occasional spotting to lightly browned contents. First English edition (first published in Latin in 1642) of De cive, the first full exposition of Hobbes's political thought to appear in print and the work which "established Hobbes's reputation among select intellectual circles" (ODNB). Hobbes wrote De cive ("On the citizen") as the third section of a planned three-part treatise on the elements of philosophy, although the first two parts, De corpore and De homine, were in fact published several years after the appearance of De cive, in 1655 and 1658 respectively. De cive presented "his solution to the problem of moral conflict, a solution in which politics came to the rescue of ethics. The book begins with an account of the state of nature, that is, in a situation without civil government. It has often been supposed that Hobbes believed that conflict arises from man's inherent selfishness, but … this is a mistaken interpretation. Selfishness or self-concern is a neutral principle: men in well-functioning society are as selfish as those outside it. Hobbes made this point clear … 'it does not follow from this principle that men are evil by nature…'" (Tuck & Siverthorne, pp. xxii-xxvi). Philosophicall Rudiments is accompanied by three engravings, heavy with royalist iconography. Noel Malcolm, one of the editors of the Clarendon Edition of the Works of Hobbes, explains that the engravings were "selected by the printer … from a previously published collection of allegorical engravings by Wenceslaus Hollar, entitled Emblemata nova. In their original context the first was on the theme of 'despising wealth'; the second on 'the sword of Damocles'; and the third on the theme of 'innocence' … Taken out of their original context and placed in a political treatise, however, these three engravings take on a very different significance. All three now seem to be on the special theme that appears to connect them, the theme of kingship – and, what is more, they give the impression of treating the holder of that office in an almost hagiographical way … This quasi-religious Royalist iconography is entirely in tune with what we know about the political sympathies of the bookseller Richard Royston, who had gone to extraordinary lengths to promote the royal cause ever since the outbreak of the Civil War" (Malcolm, pp. 236-238).

        Trattato della pittura ...

      Paris: Appresso Giacomo Langlois,, 1651. Novamente dato in luce, con la vita dell'istesso autore, scritta da Rafaelle Du Fresne. Si sono giunti i tre libri della pittura, & il trattato dell statua di Leon Battista Alberti, con la vita del medesimo. Quarto (376 × 249 mm). Contemporary mottled calf professionally refurbished (joints and corners repaired, new label to style), decorative gilt spine, marbled edges. Additional engraved title by René Lochon (incorporating a portrait of Leonardo), portrait of Alberti, 73 plates (19 of which are after Nicolas Poussin) in the text (illustrative or diagrammatic), title vignettes, head- and tailpieces and initials. Much of gilt rubbed from spine, divisional title to Alberti's "della Pittura" misbound before Alberti general title, old grease stain to engraved title, pale dampstain in gutter of first few gatherings, scattered marginal stains and signs of handling otherwise a very good copy, complete with the medial blank [R4]. Editio princeps of Leonardo's Treatise, also published by Langlois in a French translation the same year, although this did not include the two treatises by Alberti; Brunet gives precedence to this edition in Italian, which is virtually doubled in size by the addition of Alberti's Trattato della pittura and Trattato della statua. Together these texts comprise the foundational practical treatise on Renaissance art. "The idea for a publication of Leonardo da Vinci's treatise on painting was probably initiated by [the French writer and theorist on art and architecture] Fréart de Chambray with the participation of Charles Errard. Errard, a painter, ornamentalist, and architect of the Church of the Assumption in Paris, was director of the French Academy in Rome from 1666… In 1651 the two editions of the Leonardo treatise appeared – the first-ever publications of this work. The French edition was translated by Fréart and the Italian… edited by Raphael Trichet Du Fresne, a numismatist, bibliophile, and collector of antiquities and art objects for the Duc d'Orleans. The Fréart and Du Fresne editions of the Leonardo treatise were both published by the same press, Langlois… another close relation between the two editions is the collaboration of the artist Errard, who, who was a friend of both Fréart and Du Fresne. He aided Fréart with his French translation and Du Fresne in his explanation of the graphic parts of the Italian text. And he provided the illustrations which were used by both editors for their separate editions… The Errard illustrations were taken from drawings either by Poussin or another artist from his school, drawings that were intended by Poussin as informal descriptive illustrations for the Leonardo text. They were sketched in a manuscript of the Della pittura owned by the great art and antique collector Cassiano del Pozzo, secretary to Cardinal Francesco Barberini. With the aid of Pozzo, Poussin first saw Leonardo's treatise in the Barberini library… Despite similarities, the two preparations of Leonardo's treatise were by editors with different approaches to the original, which was, in its untouched state, simply a collection of pragmatic observations on nature, proportions, movement and weight of the body, light and shade, gestures and expression, colour and reflection, and landscape and perspective… Du Fresne was well able to undertake this first edition of a difficult work. Editor of the royal press from 1640, he brought out at least seventy editions, many with frontispieces designed by Poussin… [his] version of the treatise was the result of a collation of several manuscript versions of the original. On the other hand, Fréart's translation was based on a single source, the manuscript with the Poussin drawings… Although Du Fresne parallels Fréart's dedication [of the French translation] to Poussin with a dedication of the two Alberti treatises to Charles Errard, he also provides a more conventional dedication of the entire work to the queen of Sweden [the celebrated Christina], with a second dedication to Pierre Bourdelot, physician to the queen, and with whom Du Fresne had accompanied the queen to Rome… Leonardo's treatise on painting would not be printed again until the eighteenth century and the emergence of a new kind of classicism" (Millard). Provenance: ownership inscriptions of Heneage Finch on engraved and letterpress titles; almost certainly the diplomat and third earl of Winchilsea (1627/8-1689), in 1660 the first peer to be appointed to the embassy in Constantinople. "In 1657-8 he travelled extensively on the continent, acquiring a lifelong love of Italy and antiquities" (ODNB); it is most likely that he purchased this copy on that excursion. With later ownership inscriptions (on the same pages) of another Finch.

        Leviathan (.) or the matter, forme, & power of a common wealth ecclesiasticall and civil.

      London Printed for Andrew Crooke at the Green Dragon in St. Pauls Church-yard 1651 - First edition, first issue (with boar's head device to title-page). Folio (28.75 x 19.5 cm), [6], 248, 247-256, 261-396 pp., additional engraved title-page, folding table, complete, text continuous despite pagination, modern calf antique, gilt arabesque to upper cover, a fine example with wide margins. A classic work on statecraft and a landmark of western philosophy. Written during the English Civil War (1642–1651), Leviathan argues for a social contract and rule by an absolute sovereign. Hobbes wrote that civil war and the brute situation of a state of nature ("the war of all against all") could only be avoided by strong undivided government. Hobbes begins his treatise on politics with an account of human nature. He presents an image of man as matter in motion, attempting to show through example how everything about humanity can be explained materialistically, that is, without recourse to an incorporeal, immaterial soul or a faculty for understanding ideas that are external to the human mind. Hobbes describes human psychology without any reference to the summum bonum, or greatest good, as previous thought had done. Not only is the concept of a summum bonum superfluous, but given the variability of human desires, there could be no such thing. Consequently, any political community that sought to provide the greatest good to its members would find itself driven by competing conceptions of that good with no way to decide among them. The result would be civil war. There is, however, Hobbes states, a summum malum, or greatest evil. This is the fear of violent death. A political community can be oriented around this fear. Hobbes goes on to advocate the desirability of a Commonwealth in which a subject authorises and gives up any right of governing himself to this man, or to this assembly of men, on this condition;" that thou give up, thy right to him, and authorise all his actions in like manner". The work is wide-ranging, dealing with matters as diverse as tax and religion. Apart from the text, the book is also notable for its remarkable engraved title-page by Abraham Bosse. It has two main elements, of which the upper part is by far the more striking. In it, a giant crowned figure is seen emerging from the landscape, clutching a sword and a crosier, beneath a quote from the Book of Job—"Non est potestas Super Terram quae Comparetur ei. Iob. 41 . 24" ("There is no power on earth to be compared to him. Job 41 . 24")—linking the figure to the monster of that book. The torso and arms of the figure are composed of over three hundred persons, in the style of Giuseppe Arcimboldo; all are facing inwards with just the giant's head having visible features. The lower portion is a triptych, framed in a wooden border. The centre form contains the title on an ornate curtain. The two sides reflect the sword and crosier of the main figure – earthly power on the left and the powers of the church on the right. Each side element reflects the equivalent power – castle to church, crown to mitre, cannon to excommunication, weapons to logic, and the battlefield to the religious courts. The giant holds the symbols of both sides, reflecting the union of secular and spiritual in the sovereign, but the construction of the torso also makes the figure the state.

Senare pergamentband, ryggen med röd titeletikett, första arbetet med blått främre snitt och det andra med rött, övre och nedre snitt röda. Med Sophie Adlersparres namnteckning på försättsbladet, daterat 1874, samt på första titelbladet. Collijn sp. 530 resp. sp. 462 & 481-81. Almquist s. 116. Rudbeck 24 (för konungastyrelsen). Första sällsynta upplagan av Loccenius juridiska lexikon. En andra utkom 1665 och en tredje 1674. Som forskare i svensk rätt och som lärare introducerade Loccenius rättsvetenskapen i Sverige, och behovet av ett lexikon som definierade och översatte det ålderdomliga svenska rättsspråket till latin var stort. Loccenius arbetade även ständigt vidare på detta lexikon och varje ny upplaga innebar förbättringar. På slutet finns ett ?Explicatio perigrinarum aliquot dictionum feudalium?, i vilket en mängd feodala termer förklaras ha germanskt (d.v.s. langobardiskt och gotiskt) ursprung. Johannes Loccenius (1598-1677) från Holstein blev doktor i juridik i Leiden 1625. Samma år blev han inkallad till Sverige av Gustav II Adolf till en professur i historia i Uppsala. År 1628 blir han professor Skytteanus, 1648 universitetsbibliotekarie, 1651 rikshistoriograf och 1667 assessor i antikvitetskollegiet. Här bunden tillsammand med andra upplagan av Johannes Bureus edition av Konungastyrelsen. Den gavs egentligen ut tillsammans med Sveriges rikes lagböcker 1650, vilka saknas här. Sophie Adlersparre (1823-95), en av pionjärerna i Sverige inom kvinnosaksrörelsen och en av grundarna av Fredrika-Bremer-förbundet.

"The fame of the gardens of Heemstede (near Houten in the province of Utrecht) was, and still is, considerable. In literature both at home and abroad the design of this garden is listed only after Het Loo, Zeist and De Voorst [the palaces of William III and the leading noblemen of his court] as a highlight in Dutch garden art. Heemstede owes this renown above all to Daniel Stoopendaal's glorious aerial view"( Anglo-Dutch Garden).In good condition, with only a few small rust spots and two small holes, and with a small tear repaired. Mice appear to have nibbled at the upper right margin of each sheet, but politely stopped before reaching the border. A magnificent view of sumptuous formal gardens.

Very rare first and only edition in the original Italian, of a pamphlet detailing the visit of the Siamese embassy to Rome, under de guidance of the Jesuit Guy Tachard, where they would meet with Pope Innocent XI.The French Jesuit missionary Guy Tachard (1651-1712) was sent on two occasions to the Kingdom of Siam by Louis XIV, as part of an embassy to achieve a commercial agreement with King Narai of Siam. Its capital, Ayut'is, became a French Macao for merchants and missionaries from and to the further east. On his return from Siam in 1688, Tachard went to Rome in his capacity as ambassador of the King of Siam, carrying gifts and a letter from King Narai to Innocent XI. He was accompanied by Siamese mandarins and two catechists from Tongking. The mission from Siam was officially received by Pope Innocent on 23 December 1688 at a splendid public ceremony. They were unaware that Narai had meanwhile died and that during his final illness an anti-French mandarin had seized power, killed most of his family and married his daughter, taking the throne on Narai's death. The revolution severed Siam's ties with Europe, excepting only the Dutch.First leaf detached. Browned, a minor water stain in the corner of the fore-edge margin and a white spot at the upper right corner of the first leaf caused by the removal of a location number. A very rare pamphlet on the Siamese embassy to Rome.

        Manvale exorcistarum, ac parochorvm, hoc est tractatus de curatione, ac protectione divina

      Bergamo: Marco Antonio Rubei, 1651. FIRST EDITION. Complete with half title, woodcut initials and headpieces; lacks first blank. Early vellum with manuscript title on spine; despite occasional browning an excellent copy. Inscription on title page of St. Pervi dated 1664. First edition of this extraordinary manual on exorcism that was placed on the Index in 1727 by the Sacred Congregation. The author, a Franciscan friar and professor of theology, offers a theoretical and practical handbook to clergy in charge of dealing with cases of demoniac activities and behaviors. He first defines the nature of diabolical possession and sets the guidelines for an exorcism, citing multiple cases of demonic possession. Brognolo specialized in the process of identification and diagnosis of possessions of preternatural origin. He dedicates much of his work to the analysis of the unmistakable signs of the possession, providing detailed descriptions of the symptoms of the presence of evil, detailed formulae for the recognition of the state of demoniacal possession, for the discovery of a demon's name, for the cause of possession, and most importantly the step-by-step directions for the expulsion of demons. Brognolo also lists a variety of poor and ill-chosen techniques some exorcists use, among them slapping possessed people and beating them in cruel and ferocious means inappropriate and sinful for exorcists. He attacks priests who touched their female patients immodestly and in a manner that causes excitement. Growing anxiety concerning the moral standards of the clergy was a major part of the post-Tridentine reform of the clergy. This book enjoyed a large success thanks to the support of his Franciscan order before it was placed on the Index due to the perception that Brognolo was overly critical of the Church and its approach toward exorcism. Brognolo (1607-1677) was a theologian and member of the Franciscan order since 1625. He claimed in particular the validity of adjuring in the practice of exorcisms. Although he published other works, the bewitched and diagnosis of the possessed were the main focus of his studies. In addition to the Manuale exorcistarum, he published Alexicacon, hoc est, Opvs de maleficiis, ac morbis maleficis (Venice, 1668) on the symptoms and diagnosis of possession.
