He had traveled to Oaxaca to take control of the parish of San Francisco de la Mar, but was denied the parish upon his arrival. "I, Geronimo de Aldrete public notary of this city of Antequera Valle de Oaxaca on behalf of the king himself I certify and testify to the truth that on the 13th of August being in the Holy Cathedral of this city I saw the Father Frei Jacinto de Bargas presbyter priest of the order of Santo Domingo stating that he came to assume the parish of San Francisco de la mar offered to him by the Vice-patron but the Dean and the Chapter didn´t wanted to give it to him. And so it is put on the record his obedience coming here to assume this position by order of the Provincial Attorney General asking a testimony of it and so I handle the present document that it is written in the city of Antequera on the 16th of August of 1652."

When ordering from the US, parcels may be subject to import tax and duty charges, which the buyer is responsible to pay. 1652 1ed Theatrum Europaeum Geography ATLAS Maps City Views Illustrated Merian HUGE & EXTREMELY RARE FOLIO w/185 Copper Engravings! An absolutely incredible 17th-century German geography book filled with maps, city plans, and engravings "covering events in Europe through 1651. This first edition was the first edition printed by Schleder and is one of the very few editions of this book to ever see multiple reprints. This was also the first edition to see print after the death of the series' founder, Merian. This edition was intended to the sixth and final edition, but because of popular demand, another volume was written 11 years later, again by Schleder. While the content is incredible and historically accurate, the copper engravings have always been the strongest appeal, even in the 17th-century. Matthäus Merian der Ältere (1593 - 1650) was a Swiss-born engraver who worked in Frankfurt for most of his career, where he also ran a publishing house and was most known for his German-language history book "Theatrum Europaeum." Theatrum Europaeum was a journal on the history of the German-speaking lands by Matthäus Merian.

SCHYNVOET, Simon.
Berlin Kat. 3398 (2); Springer p. 42 (together with Schynvoet's series of vases, etc.); Thieme-Becker 30, p. 393. Beautiful print-series of elaborately decorated monumental columns designed as garden ornaments by Simon Schynvoet (1652-1727), a Dutch garden architect and art collector, many with coats of arms, portraits, historical or allegorical figures, views, etc. Many are anonymous and probably intended as general models, but 10 (including the title-plate and dedication-plate that serve as prints 1 and 2, were designed to commemorate specific events or people. Most of these are dated: 1689 (the Prince of Orange when crowned King William III of England) and 1697-1704 (including the radical theologian Balthasar Bekker, with a caricature medallion portrait), so the series was probably issued in that year or very soon after. The plates were engraved by his son, the draughtman and engraver Jacob Schynvoet (1685-post 1733), and by Jan Goeree (1670-1731), the most sought after engraver and book illustrator at the beginning of the 18th century.With the title-print somewhat foxed, but otherwise in good condition and untrimmed, preserving the deckles. A splendid series of garden art prints.

RUMPHIUS, Georg Everhard.
[24], 340, [43], [1 blank] pp.Second edition, in the original Dutch, of a monumental and splendidly illustrated account of Ambonese and other East Indian marine specimens excluding vertebrate fish, apparently drawn in the year of the death of the owner, Rumphius. The 60 large engraved plates show crustaceans, sea urchins, sand-dollars, starfish, shellfish, barnacles and coral, along with crystals, minerals, amber, fossils and even some man-made artefacts. Some plates show one large figure, others more than twenty small ones. Its precise descriptions and information on habitat anticipate modern marine biology.Rumphius, a German physician and naturalist, worked for the Dutch East India Company (VOC) from 1652 to his death, mostly on Ambon in the Moluccas. Traditionally the illustrations were attributed to Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717), but this has recently proven erroneous. Slightly creased, otherwise in very good condition and wholly untrimmed, leaving broad margins. Binding slightly rubbed and sides a bit soiled, but still firm and good.l Landwehr & V.d.

Small wormholes at end, mainly marginal, but a few in image of last 2 maps. With the usual browning to text and maps. ¶ First edition of the first full mapping of Schleswig-Holstein and the FIRST ATLAS PRINTED IN DENMARK. The work is highly esteemed, as the mapping and surveying by the Danish cartographer Johannes Mejer showed a precision which was without competition at its time. Mejer was educated in the tradition of Tycho Brahe and Longomontanus, and in the years 1638-48 he mapped Schleswig-Holstein and published these 37 maps in Danckwerth's description of Schleswig-Holstein. These maps were the best for nearly 150 years, and were used by Blaeu and other carthographers. The Danish King, Chr. IV, urged him to proceed with his mapping of Denmark, which he did for some years, making maps of Jutland and a general map of Denmark, in order to make a Nordic atlas, but only these 37 maps were published. Because the quality of the maps was of such a high quality compared with the surveying of the day, the Younger Blaeu used t … [Click Below for Full Description]

A remarkable sammelband containing the bulk of Oughtred's published works, with the exception of his Mathematical recreations and Trigonometry. Oughtred (1574-1660) was one of the most important and influential mathematicians of the first half of the seventeenth century and was much admired by Newton, who described him as "a man whose judgment (if any man's) may be safely relied upon" (Correspondence III, 364). Oughtred "exercised a formative influence on a host of young men with a mathematical bent, alike at the university level and at the instrument maker's bench" (Taylor, Practitioners, p. 192), notably including Christopher Wren, John Wallis, Seth Ward, Jonas Moore and Charles Scarborough. One of Oughtred's pupils, William Forster, visited him at his rectory at Albury, Surrey in 1630, and persuaded him to let him translate and publish his Latin treatises. 1.

CATHOLIC CHURCH. ROTA ROMANA. - [IN MAGNIFICENT BARBERINI-BINDINGS]
Venice, Turrin, 1652 + Augustae Taurinorum, 1652. Folio. Bound in two magnificent, splendidly gilt, contemporary, uniform full calf bindings. Profusely gilt all over. All edges gilt. Spines elaborately gilt; expertly restored at capitals, barely noticeable. Boards with large gilt elaborately ornameted frames, the inner ones with four beautiful ornamental fans in the corners (some thus call this style a "fan-binding"). Front board with centre-pieces consisting in the coat of arms of Antonio Barberini, with the three bees, inside an octagon that is also profusely ornamented. The centre-pieces of the back boards have been replaced early on with an anonymous coat of arms, to hide the identity of the previous owner. This has been done very well and is not noticeable at a first glance. This near-contemporary anonymous coat of arms, in the exact same style as the ornamentation and leather of the binding, is also place on the inside of the front board of vol. 1. Traces of the previous owner has also been removed by cutting out his name from the title-pages and from the first dedication-leaf of vol. 1. Light occasional brownspotting, but a overall a very well preserved, splendid set.Vol. 1 with engraved portrait of Clements Merlino to verso of half-title and with large engraved coat of arms of Antonio Barberini. Vol. 2 with large engraved coat of arms of Bernardino Spada. Engravings are by Zampa. Title-pages printed in red and black.

SCHEINER, Christoph
F.Fleshe, London, 1652. In 8vo. (6) ff + 254 pp. Woodcut tail and head pieces, initial letters and illustrations throughout the text. Some browning and foxing, but overall a good copy. Bound in full cartonee with inked title on spine; uncut leaves. In this book, Scheiner demonstrated for the first time that the retina is the actual organ of sight and explained the pupil changes known as "accommodation." He also devised the pin-hole test ("Scheiner's test") to illustrate accommodation and refraction. Rare second edition of the famous Fundamentals of Physiological Optics, with the first reports of his experiments on the human eye, Scheiner begins with the detailed anatomical description of the eye, so his schematic representation of the eye on page 17 with the first exact representation of the parts of the eye and the eccentric optic nerve entry became a milestone in the scientific presentation of the eye. According to Scheiner and Kepler, the retina is, according to earlier opinions, the perception of the image in the vitreous body or even in the lens, the actual seat of vision. - He removed the skins on the back wall of an ox's eye to the retina and placed a candle at some distance in front of the prepared eye. The inverted image of the candle flame could then be perceived on the retina from a position behind the eye. Later (in 1625) Scheiner started the same experiment with the same result on the human eye. His method of detecting the refraction of an eye with objective measuring methods is the oldest attempt to show the coincidence of two clusters of rays, which are still … [Click Below for Full Description]

Reliure de l'époque, coiffe sup. absente, accroc à la coiffe inf., coins émoussés.

Edition originale rare de cette pièce burlesque en vers publiée en imitation du Virgile travesti de Scarron dont la publication s'étala de 1648 à 1653. Le livre s'ouvre sur une "épîstre fort longue" à Henry de Savoie, archevêque de Rheims signée des initiales L.D.L., c'est-à-dire de Henri de Loménie comte de Brienne qui, au passage, s'attribue l'ouvrage. Mais en dehors de cette épître proprement dite, rien de permet d'enlever à Claude Petit-Jehan le mérite de la composition de cette oeuvre burlesque. Edition ornée d'un beau frontispice de Chauveau qui représente le vieux Virgile attablé qui se tourne vers un Virgile accommodé en marquis autour duquel s'affaire une troupe de petits-maîtres.

Wolfgang Endter
Wolfgang Endter, 1652. Die Weimarer Bibel : Der um die Bildung seiner Landeskinder bemühte Herzog Ernst I., der Fromme von Sachsen-Weimar (1601-1675) gab in der Nürnberger Druckerei eine Bibelausgabe in Auftrag, zu deren Ausstattung und Kommentierung Professoren der Universität Jena beigetragen hatten. Die Herausgeber waren die Theologen Johannes Gerhard (1582-1637) und Salomon Glassius (1593-1656). Kennzeichnend für die Weimarer Bibel ist die meist parenthetische Kommentierung des Bibeltextes, die in Klammern geschlossen und in kleinerer Type gehalten unmittelbar dem Bibelvers folgt. Das Textcorpus selbst ist nicht mit Bildern geziert. Hingegen sind den Weimarer Bibeln neben den üblichen Titelblättern zahlreiche erklärende Kupferstiche und inhaltsreiche Zwischentitelblätter als ganzseitige Kupfer beigegeben. Die Weimarer Bibel übernimmt die Tradition der sächsischen Herrscher, die seit der Reformation auch die Oberhäupter der jeweiligen Landeskirchen sind, sich unmittelbar nach Titelblatt und Privileg ganzseitig abbilden zu lassen und sich mit einem Lebenslauf vorzustellen. Damit wird die Bibelausgabe zugleich auch zur Ahnengalerie der Ernestinischen Linie Sachsens, die bis 1547 immerhin drei Kurfürsten gestellt hatte. Dennoch wird die Weimarer Bibel gerne auch als Kurfürstenbibel bezeichnet.

Extremities a little rubbed, leaves a shade less than bright with slightly browned edges, otherwise A FINE COPY, clean and crisp internally, the restored binding solid and not without appeal.An important contribution to the European debate over the origins of Native Americans, this treatise by Leyden historian Georg Horn supports the theory of Johann de Laet in essays Sabin describes as "supported by an infinite wealth of learning" and "display[ing] a high degree of erudition." The question of the origin of the inhabitants of the New World was of great concern to European Christians who wanted to validate the biblical version of the origins of man. In Renaissance Europe, how humans found their way to the isolated continents in the Western Hemisphere was as much a question of theology as it was of history or anthropology. When noted Protestant theologian Hugo Grotius entered the fray, he turned to philologists and classical historians--rather than to accounts by modern European explorers and missionaries--in support of his argument that North American Indians had Norwegian origins, that Central American peoples had come originally from Ethiopia, and that Peruvians were descended from shipwrecked Chinese.

NICOLS, Thomas.
First edition of the German translation of A lapidary, first published in English in 1652 and compiled by Thomas Nicols: ''the first independent gemological book by a British author . based firmly upon Boetius de Boodt'' (Sinkankas). Nicols lists all the true gems, but also covers fossils, coral, pearls, amber, etc. For each he discusses the forms, appearance, properties (diligently but somewhat sceptically reporting magical, mystical and medical claims), origins, classification, uses, prices, engraving on gems, etc. Nicols makes an intelligent synthesis of the earlier literature, as well as original contributions primarily in practical aspects related to jewellery, such as enhancing stones with reflective foils or dyestuffs, hardening softer stones, and the related subjects of falsification and adulteration.With a few minor smudges. Binding slightly stained. Overall in very good condition.l Carter, Sea of Pearls, p. 92; Sinkankas 4757; Schuh II, 3527; VD 17, 3:302273B; cf. Hoover 610 & 611; Ward 1656. [Attributes: First Edition]

PALAFOX Y MENDOZA, Juan de.
[Puebla de Los Angeles? Madrid?], n.pr., 1652. Folio (27.6 x 20.1 cm.), late eighteenth- or early nineteenth-century half mottled sheep over marbled boards (minor wear to corners; somewhat older smooth spine gilt neatly laid down), crimson leather lettering piece, short author-title gilt, Small typographical vignette on title page. Woodcut initial. In very good condition overall. Printed ticket of Sr. D. Juan M. Sánchez, Alcalá, 101, Madrid in upper outer corner of front pastedown. Another printed ticket of Sánchez, red on faded white, with item number, price paid, and "México - 1652 - Rarissimo" in ink manuscript, in upper outer corner of rear pastedown. (1), 157 ll. A-B2, B-Z4, Aa-Qq4, Rr2. *** FIRST EDITION? There are two other editions of the same year. One is also undated and without indication of place of printing or printer; it is similar, but with a different setting of type, and foliation skips from 77 to 80, followed by 77, again skipping to 80, while the final leaf 157 is wrongly numbered 158. The other, with 315 pp., bears the imprint Madrid: por Gregorio de Mata a costa de Antonio Riero y Texada, 1652. Palafox y Mendoza, energetic and beloved bishop of Puebla, was known as "the second Las Casas" because of his staunch defense of the Indians. As a direct consequence of his battles with the Jesuits, he was eventually transferred to the inconsequential See of Osma in Old Castile, where he died in 1659. His actions were finally vindicated by three papal briefs.*** Alden & Landis 652/156. Medina, BHA, 1173. Palau 209717. Sabin 58280. Streit II, 1873. Heredia 6831.
