        De Monarchia Hispanica . Editio novissima, aucta & emendata ut praefatio ad lectorem indicat

      Amsterdam: Louis Elzevir, 1653. 24mo., engraved title, all edges gilt; a very attractive copy in nineteenth-century full red morocco, gilt arms of Henry J.B. Clements on front cover , spine banded and gilt. Attractive small Elzevir edition of this utopian work by the famous Dominican friar Campanella. Chapter XXXI (pp. 274-288) is explicitly concerned with discoveries and settlements in the New World, and he recommends building forts at the mouths of all rivers and harbours "lest the English should break in and bring heresy." Written in 1598 or 1599, and rewritten soon after, this work prophesies the coming of a universal Christian monarchy (said to be the fifth such great monarchy in history) by the Spanish King. Curiously, it was first published in German in 1620, translated, probably by Besold, from Campanella's original manuscript: such an involved publishing history is not unlike many books in Campanella's oeuvre, testament to his unfailing trouble with ecclesiastical authorities; orthodoxy was not his strong point. The first English edition was published soon after this Elzevir edition as A Discourse touching the Spanish Monarchy (London, 1654); an Italian edition did not appear until 1840. Campanella's most famous work is his "City of the Sun", which was first published in 1623 but had been written during his long imprisonment by the Inquisition for sedition and heresy. The City of the Sun was a 'regimented, highly centralised, theocratic society characterized by breeding of human beings in accordance with science, subordination of individuals to the state, and absence of private property' (Gibson, St. Thomas More). It was an early and highly influential text in the development of the utopian genre, written by an author whose twenty-seven year stretch in prison seems to be a record for utopian writers. As Simon Ryan points out in The cartographic eye, although published 'long after many voyages south of the equator, Campanella's story can still utilise the easy transference from antipodes as opposite to antipodes as perverse…'.

        THE JEWEL HOUSE OF ART AND NATURE:

      London, printed by Elizabeth Alsop, 1653.Containing Divers Rare and Profitable Inventions, together with sundry new Experiments in in (sic) the Art of Husbandry. With Divers Chymical Conclusions concerning the Art of Distillation, and the rare practices and uses thereof. . Wherunto is added, A rare and excellent Discourse of Minerals, Stones, Gums, and Rosins (sic); with the vertues and use thereof. By D.B. Gent. Believed to be the third edition 1653 (first published in 1594, then reissued by Bernard Alsop and Elizabeth Alsop also in 1653 ), 8vo, approximately 190 x 130 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, 18 woodcuts in the text, pages: (8), 232, Collation: A - Z4, Aa - Gg4, bound in later half calf over marbled boards, rebacked to style with raised bands and previous gilt lettered red morocco label, previous endpapers retained. Marbled paper rubbed and discoloured, corners slightly worn, 1 with tiny repair, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, (John Bolton), title page slightly browned, outer corner tips missing, neat old paper repair to fore - edge, crease across middle, small light brown stain to A2 and very small neat repair to upper corner, occasional light age - browning, occasional small stain, no loss, closed tear to text on K3, expertly repaired with no loss, small tears with slight loss to 2 margins, neatly repaired, no loss of text, 1 word crossed through with neat correction above it, rear endpaper has later manuscript recipe, 10 lines in old ink, for a drink used in the East Indies. A good tight copy. Containing recipes and notes on manures, brewing, mnemonics, moulding and casting of metals, distilling (especially of essential oils), fishing etc., and with a description of his mechanical inventions. Trevor Hall states that this is the third book in English to contain conjuring tricks (page 208, Old Conjuring Books): 'As the author is chiefly remembered as a writer on agriculture it is curious that in the first section a number of conjuring tricks are described and The Art of Memorie'. See Toole Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring Books, 1581 - 1876, Volume I page 190, No. 572. Though mentioned in the conjuring bibliographies there are very few obvious conjuring tricks: "A Perspective ring that will discover all the cards that are neareth him that weareth it on his finger", how to hold a hot iron bar without burning one's flesh, secret of invisible ink.

His exploits are known through the posthumous publication in Lisbon of his memoir "Peregrinacao" (Pilgrimage) in 1614, of which our book is a translation of the French version. In the course of his travels in the Middle and Far East, Pinto visited Ethiopia, the Arabian Sea, China (where he claimed to have been a forced laborer on the Great Wall), India and Japan. He claimed to have been among the first group of Europeans to visit Japan and initiate the Nanban trade period. He also claimed to have introduced the gun there in 1543. It is known that he funded the first Christian church in Japan, after befriending a Catholic missionary and founding member of the Society of Jesus later known as St Francis Xavier. At one time Pinto himself was a Jesuit, though he later left the order. (Wikipedia). Lowendahl, Volume I, pages 39 - 40 and 54: "No work about Asia had a greater impact on 17th century European literature than Pinto's account of his adventures in the East."; Cordier, Bibliotheca Sinica, Volume III, 2068; Sotheby's, The Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Volume 9, 3215.

Gronovius, and an elegy on the waters of Spa, Also in this volume is Italia, inspired by his voyage to Italy, and Christina Augusta, which praises Queen Christina of Sweden, who had invited Heinsius to Stockholm to curate her library.

        De Auctionibus Libri Duo: Quorum Prior Venditiones, Posterior...

De Auctionibus Libri Duo: Quorum Prior Venditiones, Posterior Locationes Quae sub Hasta Fiunt Exequitur: Adjecto Passim Voluntariarum Auctionum Jure. Utrecht: Typus Johannis a Waesberge, 1653. [viii], 465, [32] pp. Quarto (7-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary calf, gilt spine with raised bands, edges rouged. A few minor scuffs to boards, some rubbing to extremities with minor chipping to spine ends, corners bumped and somewhat worn, boards slightly bowed. Title page with large woodcut device printed in red and black, woodcut decorated initials. Some toning to text, internally clean. A nice copy. * First edition. This interesting treatise discusses the Roman laws related to auctions, judicial sales and public contracts. Matthaeus was a jurist, professor of law at the University of Utrecht and the author of the influential treatise De Criminibus (1644).

Containing Divers Rare and Profitable Inventions, together with sundry new Experiments in in (sic) the Art of Husbandry. With Divers Chymical Conclusions concerning the Art of Distillation, and the rare practices and uses thereof. . Wherunto is added, A rare and excellent Discourse of Minerals, Stones, Gums, and Rosins (sic); with the vertues and use thereof. By D.B. Gent. Believed to be the third edition 1653 (first published in 1594, then reissued by Bernard Alsop and Elizabeth Alsop also in 1653 ), 8vo, approximately 190 x 130 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, 18 woodcuts in the text, pages: (8), 232, Collation: A-Z4, Aa-Gg4, bound in later half calf over marbled boards, rebacked to style with raised bands and previous gilt lettered red morocco label, previous endpapers retained. Marbled paper rubbed and discoloured, corners slightly worn, 1 with tiny repair, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, (John Bolton), title page slightly browned, outer corner tips missing, neat old paper repair to fore-edge, crease across middle, small light brown stain to A2 and very small neat repair to upper corner, occasional light age-browning, occasional small stain, no loss, closed tear to text on K3, expertly repaired with no loss, small tears with slight loss to 2 margins, neatly repaired, no loss of text, 1 word crossed through with neat correction above it, rear endpaper has later manuscript recipe, 10 lines in old ink, for a drink used in the East Indies. A good tight copy. Containing recipes and notes on manures, brewing, mnemonics, moulding and casting of metals, distilling (especially of essential oils), fishing etc., and with a description of his mechanical inventions. Trevor Hall states that this is the third book in English to contain conjuring tricks (page 208, Old Conjuring Books): 'As the author is chiefly remembered as a writer on agriculture it is curious that in the first section a number of conjuring tricks are described and The Art of Memorie'. See Toole Stott, A Bibliography of English Conjuring Books, 1581-1876, Volume I page 190, No. 572. Though mentioned in the conjuring bibliographies there are very few obvious conjuring tricks: "A Perspective ring that will discover all the cards that are neareth him that weareth it on his finger", how to hold a hot iron bar without burning one's flesh, secret of invisible ink.

      Lugd. Batavor, Apud. Abraham Commelinum et D. Lopez de Haio., 1653. - Lug. Bat. Apud Elzevirios, 1636.. O-Ganzpergamentband, Einband Gebrsp., Buchblock etwas gelockert, auf dem Vorsatz Papierschild der Brown-Lindsay Library, Hispanicae: Kupferstichtitelkblatt mit der Abbildung dreier Männer (knapp beschnitten), (2) Inhaltsverzeichnis (knapp beschnitten), 208 Seiten. Marchionis Princeps: Kupferstichtitelblatt mit Darstellung des Romulus, ihn umgebende Raben und der Säugescene der Wölfin, (26) mit Holzschnittvignetten und Initialien, 139 Seiten, 12,7 x 7,3 cm.. Buch 1. Der niederländische Humanist Weidner (1588 - 1655) demaskiert in seinem "Kompendium antihispanischer Vorwürfe" die "Geheimnisse des Spanischen Regiments". Er berichtet über die Greultaten der Inquisition, die Unterdrückung der amerikanischen Urbevölkerung, die Arroganz der Spanier in Portugal, Neapel, Belgien und Catalonien. Das Werk ist eine Reaktion auf die spanische Unterdrückung der Niederlande im dreißigjährigen Krieg. Buch 2. Jacob Bauer verzeichnet in seiner "Bibliotheca Librorum Rariorum" schon 1771 diese Ausgabe des Werkes Malvezzis als "Rarus libellus". Die Erstausgabe dieses Werkes erschien 1635 unter dem Titel "Ritratto del privato politico cristiano". Virgilio Malvezzi (1595 - 1653) geboren in Bologna wird von 1623 bis 26 in den Listen der spanischen Truppen in Italien und Flandern geführt. Anschließend bekleidet er mehrere Jahre einen hohen Posten in Bolognia. Ab etwa 1535 lebt er, auf Einladung des Duque de Olivares in Madrid am Hofe Felipe IV. Er war der erste Biographen weltlicher Personen, der zum ersten Mal "el interior ignorado" (Quevedo, Obras completas p. 1542) das Innere bis dahin ignorierte, miteinbezieht. Nach dem Fall des Olivares kehrt er nach Bologna zurück bearbeitet die Biographien von Coriolano und Alcibiades. 1554 stirbt er. (Agnes Delange, Criticon 2006, 61 ff.) Johan Jespersson Kruuss übersetzte das Werk Malvezzis ins Lateinische und schrieb das ausführliche Vorwort.

      Frankfurt, Johann Gottfried Schönwetter, 1653. Format: 4°.. [8], 342 S.. . Moderner Pappband mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschild und zeitgenössischem Vorsatzpapier. .. Erste deutsche Ausgabe,. *** Erste deutsche Ausgabe, "Itzo auß dem Frantzösischen in das Teutsch gebracht, und neben deß Cardinals Außflucht, Widerkehrung, auch der Printzen Conty und Longueville Verhafftung und Erledigung, und alles was gefährlich darbey allerseits vorgangen, vor Augen gestellet, und biß auff das 1652 Jahr continuirt" (Titel). Das Werk wurde aus den Schriften des in Italien geborenen, dann aber in Frankreich wirkenden Diplomaten, Kardinal Jules Mazarin (1602-1661) übersetzt und damit zum ersten Mal dem deutschsprachigen Publikum verfügbar gemacht. Im römischen Jesuitenkolleg aufgezogen war Mazarin zwischen 1634 und 1636 päpstlicher Nuntius in Paris, kam 1640 in die Dienste Kardinal Richelieus und erhielt 1641 selbst die Kardinalswürde. Mit harter Hand regierte der "Graue Kardinal" als Nachfolger Richelieus und wichtigster Wegbereiter und Garant des Absolutismus Frankreich. Er begleitete Ludwig XIV. bis zu seinem Tod. Für Deutschland waren seine außenpolitischen Schachzüge von höchster territorialer Bedeutung, was die vorliegende Publikation deutlich macht: So weitete er den Einfluss Frankreichs nach dem Ende des Dreißigjährigen Krieges beim Westfälischen Frieden (1648) aus und brachte den Rheinbund unter die teilweise Kontrolle Frankreichs (1658), das damit zur führenden Nation im europäischen Machtgefüge wurde Unwesentlich papierbedingt gebräunt, aber durchgehend sauber und in sehr gutem Zustand.

Edition originale de ce livre qui rend compte du sentiment general en ce milieu du siecle. L'auteur dresse le bilan terrifiant de cinquante annees d'histoire europeenne, de guerres, revolutions et conflits religieux, de massacres et de violences sans precedent, bilan qui le conduit a cet amer constat : "J'appelle ce siecle, le siecle de Fer a cause que tous les maux et prodiges sont arrives en gros qui n'ont ete au siecle precedent qu'en detail. Si les desordres furent grands en quelque coin, ils le sont en celui-ci partout". Huguenot ne a Verdun, l'auteur s'exila aux Pays-Bas en 1624 et devint un orangiste convaincu. L'ouvrage est dedie a Leopold-Guillaume de Habsbourg. Les premiers feuillets sont legerement effranges en marge. (Sources de l'Histoire de France, n°8454). Bon exemplaire..

His book is a compilation of the botanical knowledge available at that date, and is important as it shows another grouping attemp at a classification of the plants which he described. A number of woodcuts were especially made for the book from plants sent to the author by Lobel, l'Ecluse, and others, but for the most part were taken from previously published works" (Hunt 154). Dalechamp was a student of Rondelet and among his regular correspondents were Conrad Gesner, Joseph Justus Scaliger, Robert Constantin and Jean Fernel. First two leaves of each volumes have the outer margins somewhat browned, else a fine copy. Nissen BBI, 447..

He became a monk in 1610 and later was abbot of Villeloin (16261674). He was the author of many translations of Latin poets and was part of many salons, notably that of Madeleine de Scudery. He is best known for having collected 123.000 engravings (bought from him in 1667 by Colbert for Louis XIV for 28,000 livres) - this acquisition is considered the foundation of the cabinet of engravings in the royal library, though it was only constituted as a department in 1720.- Barbier III, ii 925 d

'His major work Mythologiae, ten books written in Latin, was first published in Venice in 1567 and became a standard source for classical mythology in later Renaissance Europe. It was reprinted in numerous editions; after 1583, these were appended with a treatise on the Muses by Geoffroi Linocier. By the end of the 17th century, his name was virtually synonymous with mythology: a French dictionary in defining the term mythologie noted that it was the subject written about by Natalis Comes".

        Moyen universel de pratiquer la perspective sur les tableaux ou Surfaces Irregulieres. Ensemble Quelques particularites concernant cet Art, & celuy de la Graveure [sic] en Taille-Douce.

      Paris, chez ledit Bosse, en l'Isle du Palais, 1653.. Petit in-4, pleine basane de l'epoque, dos a nerfs orne de caissons fleuronnes, tranches rouges (accrocs aux mors, coiffes usees, dos frotte), (8) p., 79, (1) p., 31 planches gravees hors-texte dont une depliante (plus le frontispice et la dedicace gravee compris dans la pagination). Edition originale de premier tirage. L'iconographie se compose d'un frontispice allegorique, d'un feuillet grave de dedicace au grand collectionneur Everhard Jabach, d'un titre grave portant : "Explication par figures et par discours par A. Bosse", et de 31 planches hors texte, dont une depliante, gravees sur 17 feuillets, l'ensemble grave par A. Bosse. C'est dans cet ouvrage qu'A. Bosse livra le resultat des recherches approfondies entreprises avec Robert Nanteuil, sur la question de la representation de la perspective sur des surfaces non planes ("tableaux ou surfaces de diverses situations & differemment courbes en voute, en angle"). "C'est a A. Bosse que revient l'approfondissement de la question de la perspective atmospherique, peut-etre en vertu de sa pratique d'aquafortiste, ou le travail des morsures necessite une grande maitrise de la differenciation des valeurs et des plans dans l'espace. La volonte de s'adresser aux peintres conduit Bosse a vouloir faire de ce principe rationnel une procedure qui s'inscrit dans la meme logique operatoire, numerique donc, que le devis arguesien, comme elle le pousse a penser la question non plus en termes seulement graphiques, mais en termes de couleurs" (cf. BnF, 'Exposition virtuelle', Abraham Bosse). (Brunet, I, 1127). Provenance: le graveur Nicolas-Jean-Baptiste de Poilly (1712-1780) avec sa signature autographe au verso de la garde blanche ("N.-B. de Poilly") et ex-libris du comte d'Haussonville, grand-louvetier du Roi. Bon exemplaire, bien complet du feuillet de dedicace qui manque souvent..
