        Payment receipt for (Sir) John Gell, made out and signed by William Humble.

      [London], 10. VI. 1656. - 1f. Oblong 8vo (c. 240:84 mm). Blank form filled in in ink, with papered seal. Payment receipt for the fifth installment for one of the earliest works in British printing history published by subscription, according to Dibdin (I, 23) "the first book ever published in that manner in England": "Received this [10th] day of [June] in the year of our Lord God [1656] of [Jn. Gell Esq.] the summe of [two Pounds] being the [fourth] payment of [ten pounds] by him subscribed or promised, towards the printing of the Bible in the Original & other learned Languages: Witness my hand and seal, the day and the year above written". The Bible edition for which Gell was eventually to pay 10 pounds is the Polyglot Bible edited by Brian Walton (1660-61), "the most accurate and best equipped of the great Polyglots" (Darlow/Moule, 23). The Oxford-educated orientalist Walton drew up a scheme for the project as early as 1847: "[H]aving secured the approval of the Bishops of London, Ely, Salisbury, Rochester, Lincoln, and Exeter, in 1652 he invited subscriptions for the forthcoming Bible, and entrusted the funds to the management of a worthy London citizen, William Humble. This polyglot was one of the earliest publications printed by subscription in England" (ibid., 23f.). The "worthy London citizen" Humble, who administrated the subscription payments and in whose hand the present receipt is filled in, is in all likelihood the London bookseller of that name, whose shop "The White Horse" operated in Pope's Head Alley until 1659 (cf. Plomer, Dict. of booksellers & printers). - Printing commenced in 1653, and the first complete copies were issued in 1658, "though some copies were not issued till after the Restoration, 29 May 1660" (ibid., 24). As a Protestant theological work, the Bible was put on the 'Index Librorum Prohibitorum' as early as 1663, although it "could only be used by specialists, and these could hardly do without it" (cf. Reusch II, 119). Richard Simon admitted in 1692 that it "was praised by all Catholics, even in Rome" (cf. Reusch II, 125). In his 1899 DNB article on Walton, the great orientalist D. S. Margoliouth assesses the merits of the edition: "While the Polyglot was justly regarded at the time of its appearance as an honourable monument of the vitality of the church of England at a period of extreme depression, and, from its practical arrangement, has been of the greatest use to biblical students, with whom, having never been superseded, it still commands a high price, it would also seem to have been a most successful commercial speculation. Though not absolutely the first book printed by subscription in England, it was one of the earliest, and, as has been seen, liberal support was given the undertaking from the commencement; and whereas the price paid by subscription was 10 l., other purchasers probably paid far more; in a letter to John Buxtorf the younger at Basle, Walton puts the price at 50 l." (XX, 727). - Somewhat wrinkled and with minimal damage to the edges (some touching text).

      1656 - Incisione in rame. 50 x 60 cm. Acquarellatura probabilmente d'epoca. Proveniente da " 't Nieuw Groot Straets-Boeck, door Anthoni Jacobsz. 't Amstelredam, 1656". Anthonie Jacobsz fonda tipografia ed editoria ad Amsterdam, dove si specializza nella produzione di portolani e atlanti marini. A causa della morte precoce, la maggior parte delle numerose edizioni delle sue opere è apparsa dopo la sua morte e pubblicata da suoi figli, Giacobbe e Caspar, che hanno preso il nome di "Lootsman" (pilota di mare) per distinguerli da un'altra stampante del nome Jacobsz. Dopo Blaeu e Colom , Anthonie Jacobsz è stato il più importante compilatore di carte nautiche di Amsterdam nella prima metà del XVII secolo. Ottime condizioni.Copper engraving. 50 x 60 cm. Watercolored. Come from: 't Nieuw Groot Straets-Boeck, door Anthoni Jacobsz. 't Amstelredam, 1656. JACOBSZ ANTHONIE (THEUNIS) (1606-50). Anthonie Jacobsz founded a printing and publishing business in Amsterdam in which he specialized in the production of pilot books and sea atlases. As he died at a comparatively early age most of the numerous editions of his works appeared after his death published by his sons, Jacob and Caspar, who took the name 'Lootsman' (sea pilot) to distinguish them from another printer of the name Jacobsz. Following Blaeu and Colom, Anthonie Jacobsz was the most important compiler of sea charts in Amsterdam in the first half of the seventeenth century. In his new ZeeSpiegel issued in 1643 he increased the number of charts normally included in these books and enlarged them to folio size, which evidently proved popular. Editions in many forms appeared until 1715 and they were copied or reprinted by Pieter Goos, Hendrick Doncker and Jan Jansson, sometimes in competition with each other but usually in cooperation with the Lootsman brothers. 17mo secolo

        Jesuiten-S.Maria aquila mystica, Sandaeus M., 1645

      Sandaeus Maximilian, 1578-1656 - S. Maria, aquila mystica, R. P. Maximiliani Sandaei apud J. Munich, 1645 - 489 Seiten Titel S. Maria, aquila mystica, R. P. Maximiliani Sandaei Autor Maximilianus Sandaeus (S.J., Le P.) Verlag apud J. Munich, 1645 40 Bl., 489 Seiten, Index, orig. Pergament, kl. 8°, 12x8 cm., gering gebräunt, wenige Seiten mit kleineren Rissen, ohne Textverlust. SANDAEUS (van der Sandt, Vandersant, van den Sanden) Maximilianus, SJ, Verfasser polem., spirit. u. theol. Schriften, * 17. (oder 18.) 4. 1578 in Amsterdam, &#134; 21.6. 1656 in Köln. - S. begann seine phiolsoph. Studien zunächst in Groningen, vollendete sie dann aber aufgrund der schwierigen Situation der Katholiken in Holland 1597 in Köln am Collegium Tricoronatum mit dem Magister artium. Noch im selben Jahr ging S. nach Italien und trat am 21.11. 1597 in Rom in die Gesellschaft Jesu als Novize ein. S. absolvierte seine theol. Studien am Collegium Romanum. Von 1605-22 lehrte er als Prof. der Phil. u. Theol. in Würzburg, danach, 1622-27, als Prof. für Exegese in Mainz. 1627 wurde S. Oberer des bischöfl. Seminars in Würzburg. Ab 1631 lebte er in Köln und war dort als Studienpräfekt und Direktor der marianischen Kongregation tätig. 1645/46 nahm S. als Delegierter seiner Provinz an der 8. Generalkongregation der Jesuiten in Rom teil. Er starb am 21.6. 1656 in Köln. - S. gilt als erstaunlich belesener und stark allegorisierender Schriftsteller. Seine polem. Schriften stammen aus den Jahren 1616-21, in denen er sich mit den Lehren der Reformierten in seinem Heimatland Holland auseinandersetzte. Seine über 70 Werke behandeln vor allem Themen der Spiritualität und Frömmigkeit (Maria, Passion Christi) sowie eine mystische Theologie. In seiner »Theologia mystica« beschrieb S. die verschiedenen Arten der Kontemplation und die unterschiedlichen Stufen bzw. Phänomene der Mystik. In der »Pro theologia mystica clavis« stellte S. ein Wörterbuch der Begriffe der Mystik mit ihren jeweiligen Synonymen zusammen, wobei er eine Fülle von Zitaten aus der Literatur der Mystik verwendete (Ps.-Dionysios, Origenes, Bonaventura, Theologia deutsch, Tauler, Ruusbroec, Johannes vom Kreuz, Herp, Ludovicus Blosius, Ignatius von Loyola, etc.). Die vielfältigen mystischen Erfahrungen versuchte S. mittels scholastischer Kategorien und Begriffe zu erfassen, systematisieren und verteidigen (vgl. seine Verteidigung Taulers gegen die Angriffe durch Johannes Eck). Die »Pro theologia mystica clavis« wurde für die Kenntnis der span. Mystik des 16. Jh.s in Europa äußerst bedeutsam. Erwähnenswert ist, daß Johann Scheffler (Angelus Silesius) sie als Quelle benutzt hat. - Durch seine »Theologia mystica«, insbesondere die »Pro theologia mystica clavis« nimmt S. einen wichtigen Platz in der Geschichte der Spiritualität ein.

      Printed by T.R. for H. Twyford & G. Bedell. Printed by T.R. for H. Twyford & G. Bedell. 1656 [16], 250, [10]pp table, with preliminary & final blanks; 8vo.

Contemp. blind ruled calf, expertly rebacked in matching style, new red gilt morocco label. 19th century booksellers' descriptions pasted on to inner rear board. Bookplate of Ethel Mary Portal.ESTC R208904; Wing F947. The Banqueting House is the only remaining complete building of Whitehall Palace, the monarch's principal residence from 1530 until 1698 when it was destroyed by fire. Designed by Inigo Jones, its primary function was to host occasions of state, masques and plays, and it was the most prestigious reception room in the Palace. John Finet, as master of ceremonies to both King James and King Charles, records many of these events, including visits by French, Swedish and Venetian ambassadors and the ratification of the marriage of King Charles I to Henrietta Maria in 1625. It is written with the informality of an insider's knowledge, part gossip, part a record of the elaborate etiquette that surrounded such state events.

        POLITICALL REFLECTIONS Upon The GOVERNMENT Of The TURKS.  Nicolas Machiavel: The King of Sweden';s Descent into Germany: The Conspiracy of Piso and Vindex against Nero: The Greatnesse and Corruption of the Court of Rome: The Election of Pope Leo the XI: The Defection from the Church of Rome: Martin Luther

      London: Printed by J[ohn]. G[rismond]. for Thomas Robinson in Oxford, 1656. 1st edition (Wing O-518; cf Madan 2305 for a different edition). Period full brown calf boards with modern respining to style. Gilt lettered maroon leather title label in second spine compartm. Bit of splay to boards. Period po sums to eps. A VG copy.. [8], 112, 111 - 194 pp. Around 1650, Osborne left public service & moved to Oxford, where, for the "last eight years of his life he published a series of historical, political, and moral works, which were read widely during the Restoration and early 18th C. His thinking shows the influence of Hobbes, whose 'great acquaintance' he was (Brief Lives, 1.370)." Osborne is best known for his Advice to a Son, which made him somewhat a celebrity, and helped occasion Pepys' "fondly calling the author 'my father Osborne' and recording in his Diary that Sir William Petty listed the Advice with Browne's Religio Medici and Butler's Hudibras as the works 'most esteemed and generally cried up for wit in the world' (Pepys, Diary, 19 Oct 1661; 27 Jan 1664)." [ODNB]. Here in this work, Osborne reflects on the greatness of the Ottoman Empire, though Madan notes Osborne was taken to task for his section on Machiavel, for it greatly resembled a 1642 pamphlet entitled "The Atheistical Politician, or a Briefe Discourse concerning Ni. Machiavell". Politicall Reflections a somewhat scarce title in the trade, appearing at auction only a couple times a decade, where, we note on ABPC, in 2008, a 2nd edition fetched close to $3000.

Car is first of all a style, not only in his letters (love letters), and his poetry but also in his prose, see for example the delicious Metamorphoses. His works were the image of man, gallant, teaching fine language and good manners to those familiar with the Rambouillet hotel. His fame was great during his century and remains an emblem for the seventeenth century. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Cinquième édition des Œuvres de Voiture, dont l'originale est parue en 1648 ; et édition originale des Nouvelles œuvres de Voiture. Un frontispice de Mellan pour le premier volume, un bandeau et une lettrine dans l'épître et un beau portrait de l'auteur par Champaigne gravé par Nanteuil. Reliure en pleine basane brune d'époque.

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 si 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.

Wherein the definitions, divisions, places, descriptions, differences, names, vertues, times of flourishing and gathering, uses, temperatures, signatures and appropriations of plants, are methodically laid down. Whereunto is added, a discovery of the lesser world

      London: Printed by J. G. Nath. Brook, 1656. First edition, first issue, 2 parts in one, 12mo, [24], 175, [1]pp., signatures: A⁸(A1+a4) B-H¹² I⁴ (four leaves (a4), consisting of a dedication to Ellis Ashmole and a list of errata, inserted between A1 and A2), minor professional repairs to margins of several leaves, some light staining but otherwise text quite clean, new marbled endpapers, recent full calf, blind-stamp tool to both covers, red morocco title label. William Coles (1626-62), his enthusiasm for botany developed while he was at Oxford; he afterwards resided at Putney, Surrey, where he was a friend of Dr William How, founder of the Westminster botanic garden, and according to Wood (Athenae oxoienses), "he became the most famous simpler or herbalist of his time." As the Hunt catalogue notes, publication of this book was personally disastrous for Coles. Parts of the work formed a sustained attack on Nicholas Culpeper&apos;s astrological tendencies. However, in his haste to find a patron Coles had dedicated the book to Elias Ashmole, who unbeknownst to Coles was himself an astrologist. "This necessitated the removal of the most offending leaves in the dedication and the text, and Coles fairly leaned over backward in his attempt to win the favour Ashmole. However, the damage had been done, the new dedication still contained material that might easily have distressed Ashmole, and it seems clear that he must have refused permission for the use of his name." The present copy is the rare first issue, with the offending text and dedication present. Provenance: Manuscript ownership signature to verso of front-free endpaper "Thomas Thomas his Book Anno Domini 1711" & 1727; MS. recipe for "to make cordall [sic] water in May" to recto of front-free endpaper.

        Autograph letter signed "Giovanni Legrenzi" to a gentleman

      - Legrenzi "was one of the most gifted and influential composers of the latter half of the 17th century. Active in most fields of composition, he was an important force in the development of the late Baroque style in northern Italy." When he composed this letter, Legrenzi was the maestro di cappella of the Accademia dello Spirito Santo in Ferrara, "an institution devoted. to the performance of sacred music and oratorios." During his tenure in Ferrara (1656-1665), Legrenzi cultivated a number of indispensable aristocratic connections, the most important of which was with Ippolito Bentivoglio, "who was active in the affairs of the academy, a supporter of opera, librettist for at least two of Legrenzi&#146;s dramatic works and a lifelong patron and friend, who appears to have assisted him in obtaining first performances in Venice in 1664 and Vienna in 1665." Legrenzi wrote numerous letters to Bentivoglio up to 1685. He became vice- maestro di cappella at St. Mark's in Venice in 1681 and maestro di cappella in 1685. Stephen Bonta in Grove Music Online."In 1658, while employed at S Petronio, Bologna, [Rascarini] performed the male lead in the Bologna revival of P.A. Ziani's Le fortune di Rodope e Damira. He repeated the role at least three times in the following four years, and in 1659 and 1661 he sang in the Venetian premières of Cavalli's Antioco and Castrovillari's Pasife. From 1662 until his death (except for the period 1691&#150;9) he was contralto di camera to the Dukes of Savoy at Turin, performing alongside the famous castrato G.A. Cavagna. He was a member of the literary Accademia degli Incolti at Turin. His only surviving works are two cantatas for three voices." Lorenzo Bianconi and Jennifer Williams Brown in Grove Music Online.Autograph letters of Legrenzi are very rare. 1 page of a bifolium. Folio (ca. 299 x 213 mm). Dated Venice, February 15, 1659. Written in black ink on paper with watermark to each leaf. In Italian (with translation). Addressed to a high-ranking person, perhaps Legrenzi's lifelong friend and patron, Ippolito Bentivoglio, for whom Legrenzi is seeking singers. Legrenzi has been unable to meet his patron for "instructions about how I should keep and bring to Your Excellency's service the person already agreed upon." He goes on mentions the noted Italian composer and contralto, Francesco Maria Rascarini (d. 1706) and some music "specifically for Your Excellency." He awaits his patron's orders.From the collection of Max Reis.Slightly creased; partially separated at central fold; edges slightly frayed with minor loss to blank upper portion of first leaf; some bleeding to blank verso of first leaf; slight ink burn to third line of text affecting one word; several small perforations and minor staining to blank second leaf.

      Paris: Pierre Mariette, 1656. - A very nice, clean example of this important and rare map, which "influenced the cartography of Canada for the next fifty years. The eastern Great Lakes region is remarkably accurate, with the western ends of the lakes undefined for lack of reliable information. The possibility of a northwest passage at the bottom of Button's Bay was also to influence a considerable number of cartographers for the rest of the century."(Goss. Mapping of North America, map 33). Minor flaws include scattered creasing, light dampstain at bottom right corner, splitting a few inches along bottom of center fold, a small mild stain at bottom from a sticker that had been on reverse, a small tear near left edge and a few other imperfections. But otherwise bright with good outline color. Not laid down, and does not appear to have been cleaned or otherwise restored. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Aminta Favola Boscareccia.

      In Leida. Presso Giovanni Elsevier 1656 - 12mo, 128 x 73 mms., pp. [xxii], 84, contemporary or slightly later embroidered binding, with crowns in silver threads against a dark brown background, all edges gilt, with the late 17th or early 18th century bookplate of Charles-Louis Texier, comte d'Hautefeuille or possibly his father, Jacques Etienne Louis Texier, comte d'Hautefeuille on the front paste-down end-paper; no free end-papers, slight worming of lower front cover of binding,remnants of ties, but in general in very good shape for an embroidered binding. Tasso (1544 - 1595) composed Aminta in 1573 for a garden party at the court of Ferrara. "The play has a pastoral theme, and is set in the time of Alexander the Great. The characters are shepherds and nymphs. The story is about Aminta's love for the beautiful nymph Silvia, who does not return his attentions and prefers hunting. She risks rape at the hands of a Satyr but Aminta saves her; however, again she flees from him. Aminta, finding her blood-stained veil, attempts to kill himself. Now Silvia is remorseful, comes back to cry over Aminta's body who is still alive, and the two can happily marry, following the advice that older and wiser friends had been giving them" (Wikipedia).

        Commentaria posthuma

      Irenopoli [Amsterdam]: sumptibus Irenici Philalethii [Samuel Przypkowski] Folio (31.5 cm, 12.44"). 2 vols. in 1. I: [9] ff., 325 pp. (with [3] ff. section titles). II: [2] ff., 427 pp., [28] ff. (with [15] ff. section titles).. 1656 [i.e., 1665] Polish nobleman Jonas Schlichtingius (Jonasz Szlichtyng, 1592?-1661) commenced writing these New Testament commentaries in 1655, having fled to Cracow at the outbreak of war with Sweden. Although he was taken prisoner at Stargard in 1660 and his work confiscated, the Socinian theologian continued writing "through five bad sieges, in the middle of the fury of wars, and in captivity" (cataloguer's translation, f. **2v), and revising the commentaries until his death the following year. In a brief ad lectorem, the persecuted author declares, "I would not wish the Church held responsible [for these commentaries]. Whatever is said and written is [mine]. . . ." (f. [pi]4r). Schlichtingius left his opus in the care of his sons and two friends, John Preussis and Stanislaüs Lubieniecius: In the preface to this volume, the latter discusses his life and work including his exile from Warsaw in 1647 and imprisonment in 1660. Three copious indices to scriptural sources and references within the text close the collection. Woodcut devices grace the sectional titles; refined tailpieces and large initials against a floriated background decorate the volume throughout. There is scattered Greek type. Provenance: Early inscription "Middeldorpf" on front flyleaf; bookplate and stamp of Rochester Theological Seminary (later the Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School). Deaccessioned 2005. Evidence of readership: Sparse contemporary ink annotations; underlining throughout, heavy in quires A?-C, K, M, Eee, et alibi. First edition: Published as the seventh and eighth volumes in a series of nine, comprising the Bibliotheca fratrum polonorum (1665?-68, and a supplement in 1692). Contemporary northern-European style vellum over boards ruled in blind, panels with blind-stamped central cartouches, blue speckled edges and evidence of ties; old spotting and soiling with joints (outside) partially open but binding sound. Ex-library as above: Bookplate on front pastedown, stamp to title-page (only), old library sticker to spine. Some dust-soiling and foxing, small tears, and small holes, plus a few natural paper flaws; contemporary inkstains on three or four leaves (one causing a hole at R4). A strong, interesting copy.

        L'OTTICA DELLA NATURA E DELL'EDUCAZIONE INDIRIZZATA A RISOLVERE IL FAMOSO PROBLEMA DI MOLINEUX.

      Opera dedicata a Angelo Fabbroni. Cm.20,4x13,4. Pg.XVI, 228. Legatura cartonata coeva con rinforzo al dorso. Piatti decorati. Antiporta con vignetta calcografica. In fine al volume, con numerazione autonoma "Appendice all'ottica della natura e dell'educazione, Ossia Risposta alle censure di un professore anonimo" (pg.48). Fresco esemplare, fioriture marginali. Si tratta della edizione originale di un testo di ottica composto da Cristofano Sarti, docente nell'Università di Pisa, esattamente cento anni dopo la esposizione del celebre "problema di Molineux". Il filosofo naturalista William Molyneux (Dublin, 1656 - 1698) pose nel 1692, nel "Dioptrica nova", un quesito all'epoca di notevole risonanza, segnalato anche da Locke nel "An Essay Concerning Human Understanding": se cioè un cieco, cui improvvisamente fosse donata la vista, fosse in grado di riconoscere rapidamente una sfera da un cubo, cosa che aveva evidentemente sperimentato con facilità in assenza dell'organo visivo.

        Rara lettera per la maggior parte autografa 2 agosto 1656

      Rara lettera in italiano e francese per la maggior parte autografa firmata "Chretienne" indirizzata al Marchese Villa, cavaliere dell'ordine e Generale della Cavalleria. La prima metà della lettera, scritta dal segretario, parla dell'assedio di Verrua "hora vediamo che gli spagnuoli perduta la speranza di soccorrere cotesta piazza si volgono l’animo a dar qualche colpo a quelle di questi stati, e che disegnano come saprete sopra Verrua". Segue, sotto la firma del segretario, una parte autografa, in francese, di una nota personale della reggente indirizzata al Marchese, fedele generale sin dai tempi degli assedi del 1640. Maria Cristina di Borbone, duchessa di Savoia, fu moglie di Vittorio Amedeo I e dal 1637 Reggente del Ducato di Savoia, soprannominata "Madame Reale". Morì a Torino nel 1663. Tutte le lettere dei Savoia del '600 sono ritenute di grande rarità. 4 pagine di cui la prima interamente redatta, due bianche e l'ultima con indirizzo e sigillo in ostia. Perfette condizioni.

        Iter exstaticum coeleste... Hac secunda editione praelusionibus & scholiis illustratum... a P. Gaspare Schotto... Accessit ejusdem auctoris iter exstaticum terrestre, & synopsis mundi subterranei. -

      In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena rigida, titolo calligrafato sul dorso. Frontespizio allegorico inc. in rame, uno stemma a p. pagina, e 12 tavole f.t. (22), 689, (15) pp.; vecchio timbretto sul frontespizio e lieve naturale ossidazione della carta. L?Iter extaticum coeleste racconta in forma di dialogo un viaggio fantastico nel cosmo, alla luna, a Venere ed altri pianeti. E? una delle opere più curiose del noto gesuita, ed il suo unico scritto di astronomia. La prima edizione apparve a Roma nel 1656; il testo venne poi corretto e ampliato da Gaspar Schott (1608 - 66), amico e discepolo del Kircher, e ristampato a Würzburg nel 1660 con l?Iter exstaticum terrestre, in cui il viaggio immaginario prosegue sulla Terra (questa del 1671 è la seconda edizione collettiva). Kircher vi descrive le meraviglie del mondo vegetale e animale della superficie, quelle del mondo sottomarino, e le caratteristiche geologiche del mondo sotterraneo, anticipando così il suo celebre Mundus subterraneus del 1664. Caillet 5776. Cf. Merrill, Kircher, 12 e 14. Early edition of Kircher?s most curious work and the only one he devoted entirely to astronomy, followed by his first description of the nature of the Earth, the submarine and the underworld. Engr. frontispiece, engr. coat - of - arms on verso of title, and 12 engr. plates. Contemp. vellum, ms. title on spine; old stamp on title and some light uniform browning throughout.

        Il viaggio all'Indie Orientali. Con le osservationi, e successi nel medesimo, i costumi, e riti di varie nationi... con la descrittione degl' animali quadrupedi, serpenti, ucelli, piante di quel Mondo Nuovo, con le loro virtù singolari... -

      In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena, dorso con nervi e titolo calligrafato. Con un'antiporta allegorica disegnata da Giulio Bersani ed incisa in rame da Pietro Santi Bartoli. (24, inclusa l'antiporta), 482, (22) pp.; timbro del Conte Francesco Cardelli di Roma (sec. XVIII) sul frontespizio; uniformi bruniture. Prima edizione di questa stimata descrizione. L?autore fu inviato in India nel 1656 dalla Sacra Congregazione di Propaganda Fide e ?la relazione che ne scrisse è forse la più importante che fosse scritta nel secolo XVII. La geografia, l?etnografia e le scienze naturali vi hanno una parte essenziale e, dei cinque libri onde si compone la relazione, il III è tutto dedicato alla descrizione geografica dell?India e dei costumi dei suoi abitanti; il IV si riferisce alla fauna ed alla flora. Pochi moderni viaggiatori dell?India mostrarono maggiore diligenza, esattezza e spirito di osservazione...? (Amat di S. Filippo, Biografia dei viaggiatori italiani, pp. 423 - 424). Murchio rientrò a Roma nel 1658, e il suo resoconto include anche ampie notizie degli altri paesi visitati, quali la Turchia, Libano, Siria, Persia, Arabia (un capitolo è dedicato a Muscat, l?attuale capitale dell?Oman), Malta, ecc. Olschki, Choix, 19789. Vinciana, Aut. Italiani del ?600, 1404. Hünersdorff, Coffee, p. 1045: ?The present account is much more detailed than the usual contemporary reports...? First edition. The author went to India as a missionary in 1656, travelling through Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Persia, Arabia, Oman, Malta and other countries. After his return to Rome in 1658 he wrote this fascinating account, in which he describes places (many hitherto unknown to European travelers), people, customs, costumes, architecture, antiquities, food, natural history, etc. With an engr. allegorical frontispiece. 18th century collector?s stamp on title. Uniform browning throughout but generally a good copy bound in contemp. stiff vellum, ms. title on spine.
