Su mujer, Tamar, murió en 2013, también a los 96 años. Tras su fallecimiento su biblioteca fue vendida.).- // Dificilísima primera edición, muy escasa en bibliotecas y todavía más en comercio, de esta descripción de los parajes de Palestina, protagonistas del Nuevo testamento. El éxito de la crónica, en parte debido a los grabados que ofrecían a los fieles cristianos las imágenes de cómo eran realmente los santos lugares, hizo que a esta edición original de 1654 siguieran en breve la también muy cotizada de 1655 procedente de la imprenta plantiniana de Amberes, y la de Barcelona, realizada por Antonio Arroque, que no lleva grabados. En la Imprenta Real de Madrid volvió a imprimirse en 1656 (edición frecuente en comercio) y en 1664; y Antonio Mureto la imprimió en Paris, en 1666, en la última de las ediciones del s. XVII. Hay ejemplares -este, no- de esta primera edición que están expurgados en la p. 144 (numerada 134), para repudiar la forma en que Antonio del Castillo exculpaba a Longinos (el soldado que clavó la lanza a Jesús crucificado), lo que forzó que en siguientes ediciones se añadiese por delante una cita del evangelio de san Juan en la que se afirma que Jesús ya estaba muerto antes de ser alanceado. El autor del grabado de la portada, Johaness Frideric Greuter (1600-?), era hijo del también artista grabador de Estrasburgo Mathieu Greuter. Casado dos veces en Roma, la primera en 1618, parece que siempre ejerció allí, por lo que el encargo del grabado debió realizarlo Antonio del Castillo a su paso por esa ciudad en su regreso de Palestina a España. El resto de los grabados que cubren la primera mitad de la obra carecen de firma. Valorado de antaño, Palau señala "42 fr. Paris en tafilete por Petiti-Simier, luego 150 fr. Bachelin, 21 libras Magg Bros en 1927, 150 pts. en 1951." En España sólo localizamos dos ejemplares de esta primera edición, uno en la Universidad Complutense y otro en la abadía de Montserrat. Fuera de España solo la hemos localizado en cuatro bibliotecas: Biblioteca nacional de Holanda, Biblioteca regional de Württemberg y bibliotecas universitarias de Harvard y del estado en Viena.- Refs.: Brunet, I, 634; Graesse, II, 66; Heredia, 2878; Palau, 48038.

      London: Livewell Chapman 4to (18 cm, 7.1"). [2], 14 pp.. 1654 Sole edition. John Spittlehouse was a Fifth Monarchist and determined controversialist who supported Cromwell until concluding that Cromwell was not, in fact, the new Moses. Here the author uses a great many capital letters and Biblical quotations to argue in favor of the dissolution of Parliament and against maintaining a standing army, since the army had taken to apostasy and hypocrisy. (Spittlehouse also wrote The Army Vindicated, in their Late Dissolution of the Parliament; his postscript here notes that his position on the army had changed since the publication of that pamphlet.) ESTC and WorldCat locate only six U.S. institutional holdings of this item. Later plain paper wrappers, spine reinforced with cloth tape. Title-page, first text page, and two other pages institutionally pressure-stamped; first text page with inked annotation in inner margin and numeral in lower margin. Light offsetting and spotting; first and last pages dust-soiled.

        Lagenia; Anglis Leinster - [The County of Leinster]

      Amsterdam: Janssonius. Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. . Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1654. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50.5 cm x 40 cm Mounted: c. 70 cm x 60 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem ?- buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia)

        Lagenia; Anglis Leinster - [The County of Leinster].

      Amsterdam, Janssonius, 1654.. Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50.5 cm x 40 cm Mounted: c. 70 cm x 60 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours.. Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem - buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia)

        Anatomia hepatis

      London: Du-Gard for Pulleyn, 1654. "Glisson's Capsule"GLISSON, Francis (1597?-1677). Anatomia hepatis. Cui praemittuntur quaedam ad rem anatomicam universe spectantia. . . . 8vo. [48] 458 [14]pp. 2 folding engraved plates, engraved text illustration, text woodcuts. London: Du-Gard for Octavian Pulleyn, 1654. 165 x 111 mm. Vellum c. 1654, author's name in ink in a later hand on spine. Very fine, crisp copy. Long neat marginal note in pen in an early hand, a few pencilled notes in the same hand. Minute early owner's signature (?) on front free endpaper, along with gift inscription dated October 9, [19]23 from Harry Friedenwald (1864-1950), author of The Jews and Medicine (1944-46; G-M 6501.1), to Louis P. Hamburger.First Edition. Garrison-Morton 972. The first book printed in England to present a detailed account of a single organ based on original research, and the most important book to date on the physiology of the digestive system. Glisson used advanced anatomical methods, such as casts and injection of colored fluids, which enabled him to illustrate the vessels of the liver (portrayed in the two engraved plates). He described the passage of blood from the portal vein to the vena cava, and proved that lymph flows not to the liver, as was then believed, but from it, passing to the recently discovered capsula communis. This fibrous capsule, which Glisson was the first to describe accurately, is now known as "Glisson's capsule." "Educated at Cambridge, where he later served as Regius Professor of Physic, Glisson was part of the extraordinary ferment in medicine and the life sciences that occured in the two English universities in the earlier seventeenth century. Like his influential colleague and friend, William Harvey, Glisson epitomized the English style of biological research: he was theoretically conservative and non-dogmatic; and at the same time he was committed to a rigorous program of experimentation, precise observation, and accurate description. His principal publications, especially the Anatomia hepatis, join an experimental exactitude and direct observation of the particular with a felt concern to preserve basic Aristotelian and Galenic traditions of natural philosophy. . . . Glisson's classic work on the liver . . . was based on dissections that Glisson had done over a decade earlier. It was the first work to recast fundamentally the physiology of the abdominal organs, to delineate the structure and function of the liver, and to identify and describe the fibrous tissue encasing the liver (Glisson's capsule). It also introduced Glisson's important concept of 'irritability,' in which he argued that irritation was the organism's way of recognizing substances to be expelled. The property of irritability was thus basic to the health of the organism" (Grolier Club, 100 Books Famous in Medicine, 29). DSB. Lilly, p. 67. Norman 911. Russell 322.

An very attractive copy, handsomely bound. 1654 Commentary on "The Shakespeare of the Mancha" First edition of this commentary on Cervantes, with three early references to Shakespeare. Gayton's Pleasant Notes Upon Don Quixote constantly departs from its ostensible subject to introduce colorful anecdotes of contemporary London. One of the "Sons of Ben," the group of poets and playwrights that gathered around Ben Jonson, Gayton was well-informed about the playwrights of his day The book is especially valued as an early source of three early references to Shakespeare. Shakespeare is named in a list of admirable English writers on p. 21; on p. 95, Don Quixote is called "The Shake-speare of the Mancha"; and on p. 150, in a discussion of poets and mistresses, includes Shakespeare among those English poets who amorous inclinations were restrained by matrimony: "Our Naton also hath had its Poets, and they their wives: To passe the Bards: Sir Jeffery Chaucer liv'd very honestly at Woodstock, with his lady ... and wrote against the vice most wittily, which Wedlock restrains. My Father Ben [Jonson] begate sonnes and daughters; so did Spencer, Drayton, Shakespeare ..." The English translation of the first part of Don Quixote (by Thomas Shelton) appeared in 1612; the second part, also by Shelton, in 1620. Shakespeare died in 1616, and the first edition of his collected plays appeared in 1623.

Se publican varios documentos que sustentan la posición del obispo, entre ellos títulos, provisiones, patentes, cartas,

      1654 - 37 ff. 1654. Impresos numerados, pequeñas manchas de humedad en algunas páginas sin afectar la lectura del texto. En general en aceptable estado de conservación. Este valioso impreso permite adentrarnos en el conflicto que surgió entre Fray Bernardino de Cárdenas, obispo de Asunción, y los padres de la Compañía de Jesús del Paraguay, quienes expulsaron hasta en tres oportunidades al obispo a fuerza de armas para evitar que visitará las misiones del Paraná, Uruguay e Itati. Este conflicto durará cerca de 20 años, extendiéndose desde 1640 hasta 1660 Natural de la Paz, Fray Bernardino de Cárdenas, es quizás el obispo boliviano más famoso de todo el periodo colonial, polémico personaje sobre el cual se ha escrito mucho. Nació en Chuquisaca el 20 de Mayo de 1579, siendo sus padres Don Celestino Félix de Cárdena y Doña Teresa Ponce. Cuando apenas contaba con 15 años de edad, fue enviado a estudiar en Lima, en el Colegio San Martín, considerado entonces el mejor colegio de humanidades del virreinato. Hacía 1600 aproximadamente, cuando apenas contaba con 21 años, Fray Bernardino profesa como sacerdote en el convento San Francisco de Jesús de Lima, y desde entonces se dedica a la labor misionera. Fue guardián de los Convento de Chuquisaca y Lector e Teología de Prima, Visperas, (1614) y Potosí (1620); misionero entre los lecos y chunchos de Apolobamba (1621-1627). Intervino eficazmente para lograr la pacificación en un levantamiento de indígenas en Songo, Challada, Chcapa y Simaco en el departamento de La Paz (1625). Hacía 1628, lo encontramos destinado a la doctrina de Camata, lo que le brindó la oportunidad de recorrer como misionero itinerante gran parte de los actuales territorios del Perú y Bolivia, destacándose como predicador en quechua y aymara. Al año siguiente fue nombrado por el Concilio Provincial Platense delegado para la extirpación de la idolatría. En 1634, publica el Memorial y relación verdadera de las cosas del Reino del Perú”. El 18 de mayo de 1640 Fray Bernardino es nombrado Obispo de Asunción en la Gobernación del Paraguay. Desde el comienzo empezaron los conflictos con los padres jesuitas, quienes cuestionaron su nombramiento, y Fray Bernardino sólo pudo tomar posesión de su diócesis el 20 de mayo de 1642, iniciando entonces una visita a las reducciones jesuitas. Poco tiempo después, un nuevo conflicto surgió a raíz de la diferente visión de Fray Bernardino sobre el servicio personal de los indios. Los jesuitas no aceptaban que los indios de sus reducciones trabajaran para los españoles, punto de vista que no compartía el obispo. Mientras que en las Audiencias de Lima y Charcas la mayor parte de las doctrinas de indios se encontraban en tierras bajo el mando de los españoles, en el Paraguay la situación era completamente diferente. Por otra parte, Fray Bernardino dio oídos a la leyenda de la existencia de minas de oro en las reducciones e informó en ese sentido a Chuquisaca, Lima y Madrid, afirmando que los jesuitas se enriquecían en perjuicio de la corona. La desavenencia más grave se dio sin embargo, por su oposición al catecismo guaraní usado por los jesuitas. Los acusó de herejía, por usar palabras no adecuadas. En realidad, ese catecismo era el de Fray Luis de Bolaños, franciscano, aprobado por dos sínodos diocesanos. Su obispado en el Paraguay dura desde 1640 a 1649 en que es expulsado y mandado preso a un convento de la orden. Comienzan largos años de vida errante dedicándose nuevamente a la predicación de los indios a la vez que se lleva adelante su defensa ante las autoridades para poder lograr nuevamente su obispado. El franciscano Fray Juan de San Diego y Villalón quien firma estos escritos, fue quien se ocupó de redactar los memoriales respondiendo a las acusaciones planteadas por los jesuitas. Recién en 1665 obtiene de la Santa Sede la aprobación de su nombramiento sin las bulas papales y se le ofrece nuevamente la sede episcopal que no acepta por su avanzada edad.

        The Combate between the Flesh and Spirit: as also the wofull with-drawing of the spirit of God, with the causes thereof, and walking in, and after the Spirit, together with the blessednesse thereof, being the summe and substance of XXVII. sermons preached a little before his death ... to which is added The Christians directory, tending to direct him in the various conditions that God God may cast him into, in XV. sermons

      London: Printed by T.R. & E.M. for J. Rothwell, 1654. First edition. Modern cloth. A very good copy; rebound in cloth with new endpapers, faint institutional blind-stamp to title page, tiny deaccession stamp to rear endpaper, occasional faint dampstain or foxing, but quite clean. 8vo. Does not contain 'The Christians directory' (Wing L3145) which may have been issued separately in 1653. Christopher Love (1618?"1651), clergyman, converted to evangelical Christianity in 1633 when he heard William Erbury preach. Later he was appointed chaplain to the regiment at Windsor Castle; but from 1646 on believed that heretics in the army were the greatest threat to Presbyterianism and so became a central figure in an attack on the republic. In 1649 Love became involved in a plot to return the exiled Charles II to the throne of England, for which act he was condemned to death and beheaded three years before this volume was printed. "The volumes of posthumously published sermons show that Love was an able preacher whose method was to apply Calvinist doctrine to both comfort and humble his flock before God," (DNB). This volume was the property of Rev. William De Loss Love, Jr, most probably of Hartford, CT. ESTCR202772. Wing (2nd ed.) L3149 (Variant?).
