        THE COMPLEAT SWIMMER: OR, THE ART OF SWIMMING: DEMONSTRATING THE RULES AND PRACTICE THEREOF, IN AN EXACT, PLAIN AND EASIE METHOD. NECESSARY TO BE KNOWN AND PRACTISED BY ALL WHO STUDIE OR DESIRE THEIR OWN PRESERVATION

      London: Printed by J. C. for Henry Fletcher, 1658. FIRST EDITION. This is the Britwell Court copy of a rare early work on swimming--the only copy to appear in auction records for more than 80 years. Just two books of instruction for swimmers were published earlier: "De arte natandi" (1538) by the Dutch writer Nicholas Winmann, and Sir Everard Digby's brief tract, published in Latin in 1589 and in English in 1595. As Percey explains in "To the Reader," the "only inducements to all actions . . . are pleasure and profit"; swimming offers the pleasure of "sporting our bodies upon and playing with the silver streams," and the profit of being healthful for our bodies. He offers advice on the proper seasons and weather for swimming (not on rainy days), and cautions against swimming every day. After covering the basic movements, he describes advanced maneuvers, including "the drawing on of boots" and "the leaping of the goat." ESTC locates just three copies in Britain (Birmingham, the Bodeleian, and the British Library), and five in the U.S. (Columbia, Yale, Huntington, Folger, the University of Illinois). OCLC finds additional copies at the Mariners Museum Library in the U.S. and the Bavarian State Library. Our previous owner was William Henry Miller (1789-1848), who began the great Britwell Court Library. It remained in the Christie-Miller family until the Britwell Library sale at Sotheby's in 1925 (lot 560). Since then, it has apparently resided in French private collections.. 145 x 90 mm.

        Amstelodami celeberrimi Hollandiae emporii delineatio nova

      Amsterdam 1658 - Splendida veduta prospettica, a volo d'uccello, di Amsterdam, durante il secolo d'oro olandese. La mappa è orientata a sud-ovest, e mostra il centro della città racchiusa all'interno delle mura medievali. I nuovi confini della città e il nuovo sistema di canali sono raffigurati con fortificazioni costruite sulla destra e disegnate con linee tratteggiate per mostrare l'area che doveva essere collegata al termine della costruzione. Migliaia di edifici piccoli sono mostrati divisi dal fiume Amstel, e molti mulini a vento punteggiano l'area esterna della città. Ai margini di destra e sinistra, una dettagliata legenda con 110 luoghi notabili. In basso, in primo piano, numerose barche a vela e banchine riempiono il porto. In alto a sinistra campeggia lo stemma della città, mentre a destra. Questa lastra di Janssonius è molto simile a quella omonima del Blaeu pubblicata nell'Atlante delle città, rispetto alla quale esclude la dedica e l'imprint in basso a sinistra. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare dell'edizione G. Leti del 1690. This attractive bird's-eye plan of Amsterdam shows the city during it's Golden Age as one of the leading trading empires of Europe. The plan shows the city center enclosed within the medieval town walls. The new expanded city limits and canal systems are depicted with fortifications built-out on the right and drawn in dotted lines to show the area to be enclosed on completion of the construction. Thousands of tiny buildings are shown divided by the Amstel river, with the stock exchange and fish market at center, and many windmills dotting the outer city wall. At left and right there is an impressive key with 110 numbered locations. In the foreground, numerous sailing ships and docks fill the busy port. The city's coat of arms is at left. Jansson's map is nearly identical to Bleau's version published in Groot Toonneel der Steden (Town Atlas of the Low Countries) but excludes the dedication and imprint at bottom left. Example from G. Leti edition, of 1690. Copperplate, finely hand colured, in very good condition. Koeman II, Ja12 (73). Dimensioni 540 430mm

        Hydriotaphia, Urne-Buriall, or, a Discourse of the Sepulchrall Urnes lately found in Norfolk. Together with the Garden of Cyrus, or the Quincunciall, Lozenge, or Net-work Plantations of the Ancients, Artificially, Naturally, Mystically Considered. With Sundry Observations.

      First edition. 8vo., pp.[xvi], 102 (i.e. 202 misnumbered), [vi]. Two full-page engraved illustrations plus one smaller illustration to the text, woodcut inititals and head-pieces, separate title-page to The Garden of Cyrus all three unpaginated leaves at end ('The Stationer to the Reader', 'Books Printed for Hen. Broome [...]', 'Dr. Brown's Garden of Cyrus'). Head edge trimmed a little close in places but causing no loss of text, final two gatherings lightly dampstained, occasional faint spots and smudges. Slightly later limp vellum, edges lightly sprinkled brown. Vellum rumpled and a little grubby, ties lost, endpapers replaced but still very good.Browne's (1605-1682) is one of the earliest English archaeological monographs, here found as usual with his work on ancient styles of planting. Hydriotaphia [...] was written for Thomas Le Gros of Crostwick, and The Garden of Cyrus for Nicholas Bacon of Gillingham; they were published together in 1658. 'Although professedly works of invention, and therefore displaying Religio Medici's wide and witty imagination, Hydriotaphia and The Garden of Cyrus had serious ends in view. They were written, like Pseudodoxia, out of books as well as experience, extracting and reweaving much erudite information on the funerary and horticultural practices of the ancients to provide a large context for personal observations. Hydriotaphia may be one of the first archaeological monographs in English, but the pictured and comparatively briefly described urns, now in the British Museum, are Saxon rather than (as Browne tentatively guessed) Roman, and the work's sole contribution to knowledge was Browne's discovery 'in an Hydropicall body ten years buried in a Church-yard' of 'a fat concretion' (later termed 'adipocere'). The tract has been enjoyed less for factual content than for its wit and solemn music, from the first chapter's reflection that the shallow burial of the deceased has 'left unto our view some parts, which they never beheld themselves' to the concluding declamation on the futility of all monuments compared to 'the extasie of being ever'. The addressee lost his father, Browne's patient, Sir Charles Le Gros, in 1656, which suggests that the much admired peroration on the triumph of Christian immortality over time, death, and oblivion was always the ultimate goal of the piece. The Garden of Cyrus, after expounding ancient patterns of planting, including much modern botanical information, and gathering together examples of quintuplicity in human artefacts, the natural world, and pagan and Christian numerology, likewise concludes in religious mood, invoking 'the mystical Mathematicks of the City of Heaven' which will ordain 'that time, when ... all shall awake again'. Nicholas Bacon, too, had recently been bereaved, in his case of successive heads of the family, his uncles Sir Edmund Bacon (Browne's 'true and noble friend') and Sir Robert Bacon, premier baronets, in 1649 and 1655. The dedication justifies coupling the tracts 'since the delightful world comes after death, and paradise succeeds the grave; since the verdant state of things is the symbol of the Resurrection, and to flourish in the state of glory, we must first be sown in corruption'. Both tracts, therefore, may have been conceived as works of consolation, exercises in the genre of Seneca's Moral Essays.' (ODNB)

        Miscellanea di opere religioso - devozionali tedesche del XVII secolo

      1658. 18 opere religioso-devozionali tedesche impresse prevalentemente a Monaco di Baviera fra il 1658 e il 1667 in un volume in-4° antico (200x157mm) in attraente legatura monastica coeva in piena pelle di scrofa su assi di legno con cornici plurime di filetti e ricchissime ornamentazioni a secco ai piatti. Dorso a 4 nervi rilevati con titolo anticamente manoscritto. Conservati i fermagli originali in pelle di scrofa e metallo. Tale tipologia di legatura ebbe estesissimo impiego nell'area tedesca durante i secoli XVI, XVII e XVIII, venendo prediletta per la sua solidità e perché essa ben si prestava alla fitta decorazione a secco tipica delle legature della Germania. Tutte le opere adunate nella miscellanea sono in carattere gotico e presentano talora il titolo entro una bordura ornamentale xilografica, nonché testatine o finalini ornati o istoriati xilograficamente. Usuali bruniture e fioriture dovute al tipo di carta, aloni leggeri ad alcuni ff., ma bello stato conservativo nell'insieme. Ex-libris figurato di Jakob Klatzkin (Kartoz-Brioza / Kartusskaya Berëza, attuale Bielorussia, 1882-Vevey, Svizzera, 1948), noto filosofo e pubblicista ebreo di tendenze sioniste, traduttore tra l'altro di Spinoza in ebraico; Klatzkin si segnalò per una radicale rilettura dell'ebraismo che negava ogni significato all'idea del popolo eletto e caldeggiava il ritorno degli ebrei nella terra degli antenati senza alcun cedimento allo sciovinismo. Comprende: 1) Opera religiosa di Andreas a Sancta Theresia (Andrea da Santa Teresa), carmelitano scalzo tedesco spentosi nel 1682, non identificata in quanto priva di frontespizio, di pp. 6 nn. + 36.

        Miscellanea di opere religioso - devozionali tedesche del XVII secolo

      1658 - 1667, München - Wien (et alii) 1658 - 18 opere religioso-devozionali tedesche impresse prevalentemente a Monaco di Baviera fra il 1658 e il 1667 in un volume in-4° antico (200x157mm) in attraente legatura monastica coeva in piena pelle di scrofa su assi di legno con cornici plurime di filetti e ricchissime ornamentazioni a secco ai piatti. Dorso a 4 nervi rilevati con titolo anticamente manoscritto. Conservati i fermagli originali in pelle di scrofa e metallo. Tale tipologia di legatura ebbe estesissimo impiego nell'area tedesca durante i secoli XVI, XVII e XVIII, venendo prediletta per la sua solidità e perché essa ben si prestava alla fitta decorazione a secco tipica delle legature della Germania. Tutte le opere adunate nella miscellanea sono in carattere gotico e presentano talora il titolo entro una bordura ornamentale xilografica, nonché testatine o finalini ornati o istoriati xilograficamente. Usuali bruniture e fioriture dovute al tipo di carta, aloni leggeri ad alcuni ff., ma bello stato conservativo nell'insieme. Ex-libris figurato di Jakob Klatzkin (Kartoz-Brioza / Kartusskaya Berëza, attuale Bielorussia, 1882-Vevey, Svizzera, 1948), noto filosofo e pubblicista ebreo di tendenze sioniste, traduttore tra l'altro di Spinoza in ebraico; Klatzkin si segnalò per una radicale rilettura dell'ebraismo che negava ogni significato all'idea del popolo eletto e caldeggiava il ritorno degli ebrei nella terra degli antenati senza alcun cedimento allo sciovinismo. Comprende: 1) Opera religiosa di Andreas a Sancta Theresia (Andrea da Santa Teresa), carmelitano scalzo tedesco spentosi nel 1682, non identificata in quanto priva di frontespizio, di pp. 6 nn. + 36.

La prima c. di testo reca in principio una citazione dal Vangelo di San Luca, Huic Domini salus facta est. 2) Andreas a Sancta Theresia, Erster Grundstein eines Geistlichen Gebäws: das ist: Ein andächtiges lobschuldiges Cantzel-Gespräch von dem Allerheiligsten Hochwürdigsten Sacrament des Altars, welches under der Octav dess H. Fronleichnambs mit hochansehenlicher Fest-Begängnuss Beylegung dess ersten Steins zu der Kirchen dess Hochwürdigsten Sacraments für die Barfüssige Carmeliter in der Statt Augspurg den 29. Junij gehalten hat Andreas von S. Theresia, Kempten, Dreher, 1666, pp. (6), 24. Titolo entro bordura xilografica. Edizione originale. 3) Padre Franz Josef (F.

        MALACA CONQVISTADA

      - POEMA HEROICO POR FRANCISCO DE SAA DE MENEZES. ANTIGAMENTE Impresso: agora refornado. OFFERECIDO A Real Magestade de el Rey Dom AFFONSO VI. Nosso Senhor. EM LISBOA. Com todas as licenças necessárias. Por Paulo Craesbeeck, anno 1658. In 8º de 19x13,5 cm. com [xii], 396 págs. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível com o título manuscrito na lombada e com atilhos apenas na pasta posterior. Apresenta oxidação natural do papel utilizado na impressão. Carimbo oleográfico de posse na folha de rosto e assinatura de posse no pé da folha de rosto: «Ferrão». As páginas preliminares inumeradas incluem uma dedicatória ao Rei D. Afonso VI, Ao Leitor, Licenças de 1655 a 1658, as peças em verso em louvor do autor já incluídas na 1ª edição e as erratas. Segunda edição. Valiosa obra clássica da literatura portuguesa e importante fonte para a história das conquistas portuguesas no Oriente, cuja primeira edição foi publicada em 1634. Foi traduzida para inglês em 1970. Esta 2ª edição é a mais importante das três edições publicadas até hoje, pois reflete a última versão do texto alterado pelo autor. O poema, que na 1ª edição tinha 1250 oitavas, nesta segunda edição passou a ter 1339 oitavas além de alterações em muitos versos e nos argumentos em verso de cada canto. Knowlton, tradutor da versão inglesa desta obra e estudioso da cultura e história portuguesa, publica um estudo em 1992 onde demonstra que o autor com essas alterações acentua as características barrocas do poema. A intenção do autor ao publicar esta 2ª edição foi incentivar o Rei D. Afonso VI a reconquistar Malaca, que estava nas mãos dos Holandeses desde 1641. Também segundo Knowlton, o autor terá tido acesso a informações sobre a Conquista de Malaca em 1511, que não constam de mais nenhuma outra fonte disponível, através de memórias conservadas pela sua família sobre antepassados que participaram na conquista. Malaca tem ainda hoje uma aura mítica (um dos grandes feitos de armas de Afonso de Albuquerque) e uma forte ligação a Portugal, apesar de ter sido ocupada por holandeses e ingleses. Nela existe uma comunidade de descendentes de Portugueses, com uma língua própria baseada no português antigo e forte ligação a Portugal. In 8º Dim.: 19x13.5 cm. [xii], 396 pps. Binding: Contemporary flexible parchment. Handwritten title on spine and clasps on the lower board. Natural foxing due to the paper which was used. Rubber ownership stamp on title page and ownership signature at the bottom of the title page: ?Ferrão?». The first unnumbered pages include: Dedication to His Magesty King Afonso VI, To the Reader, Licences from 1655 to 1658, poems praising the author, which are already included in the first edition, and errata. Second edition. Valuable classic work of the Portuguese literature and an important source for the history of the Portuguese conquests in the Far East, first published in 1634. It was translated into English in 1970. This second edition is the most important of three published until now, since it reflects the last version of the text changed by the author. The poem, which in the first edition had 1250 octaves, in this second edition has 1339, and also includes changes in many verses and the summaries in verse in each ?canto? Knowlton, translator of the English version of this work and a scholar of Portuguese literature and history, published in 1992 a study where he shows that the author has enhanced the baroque characteristics of the poem with these changes. The intent of the author, when publishing this second edition, was to encourage King Afonso VI to retake Malaca, which had been occupied by the Dutch since 1641. Also, according to Knowlton, the author had access to information about the Malaca conquest in 1511, not available from any other source, through memorabilia from his ancestors, who took part in the conquest, kept by his family. Malaca has, till today, a mythical aura (one of the great feats of Afonso de Albuquerque) and a strong connection to Portugal

        LETTERA MANOSCRITTA datata 10 Giugno 1658 indirizzata al Marchese Villa.

      1658. lettera manoscritta (mm.310x215) composta da 8 pagine non numerate (le ultime 2 bianche) e indirizzata "Al mach.e Villa si contenterà di decifrare questa da se stesso". La lettera è infatti interamente composta da cifre e nell'interlinea compaiono le parole corrispondenti che un anonimo ha anticamente già decifrato. L'autore della missiva, che si firma in calce ma non ci è possibile risalire al nome, scrive questa lettera da Modena il 10 giugno 1658: dal testo si evince che si preoccupa di dare indicazioni di tattica militare circa lo spostamento delle truppe nelle località di Tortona, Valenza, Frascarolo, la richiesta di approvvigionamento di munizioni, sacchi di farina, il passaggio di cavalli e fanti a Serravalle, invita il destinatario della lettera (il Marchese Villa) ad attraversare il Po ed aspettare le truppe per sorprendere il nemico, indica la volontà di gettare un ponte per passare l'Adda. Sono citate molte località: Trino, Mortara, Valenza, Tortona, il Ticino, Piacenza... Probabilmente siamo nell'epoca della guerra tra Francesco I d'Este (1610-1658), Duca di Modena, e la Spagna, quando con il suo esercito franco-piemontese progettava l'occupazione del Milanese; il Marchese Villa fu abile condottiero e guidava la cavalleria piemontese, la guerra durò fino al 1659. Ottimo stato di conservazione, salvo traccia di piegatura. [167]

      Paris, Thomas Jolly, 1658, in folio, de 4ff. VIII-225pp. & 2ff., illustré de 800 belles figures gravées sur bois de physiognomonie dont certaines à pl. page, pl. vélin souple époque, trou de ver peu visible en marge int. de qq. feuillets, qq. petites restaurations en marge et qq. infimes rousseurs éparses sinon bel exemplaire. Edition originale très rare de ce magnifique traité de métoposcopie et de physiognomonie. L'édition latine et la française parurent en même temps chez le même éditeur, mais d'après Osler la française serait la première. L'étude des caractères, tempéraments, penchants, et types morphologiques faite par Cardan repose sur 800 belles figures de la face humaine, des rides du front, des mains etc... Mais la méthode métoposcopique de Cardan repose beaucoup plus sur l'étude des rides et de leurs rapports aux signes astrologiques que les méthodes physiognomoniques classiques. Grillot de Givry rapproche la méthode de Cardan de la Chiromancie et qualifie l'ouvrage de "monument imposant de patience et de sagacité" et l'édition "d'à peu près introuvable". ¶ Dorbon n°622 "Ce rarissime traité, qui ne se trouve pas dans la collection des oeuvres de Cardan, est d'ailleurs l'un des meilleurs que l'on ait sur la physiognomonie..." - Krivatsy 2149 - Caillet n°2019 "Traité fort rare..." - Guaïta n°1227 - Osler 2242 - Thorndike V. chap.26 - cat.

        Opera Omnia Medico-Chemico-Chirurgica, tribus voluminibus comprehensa. Editio novissima et emendatissima ad Germanica & Latina exemplaria accuratissime collata.

      Geneva: Sumptibus Joan. Antonii, & Samuelis De Tournes. 1658. A fine copy, in contemporary vellum and with the often missing portrait, of "the best and most complete edition of Paracelsus' collected works" (Neville).?Dibner, Heralds of Science, no. 124. "According to Sudhoff, bibliographer of Paracelsus' works, this compendium of the works of Paracelsus, edited by Friedrich Bitiskius, is the most complete of the Latin collected editions. It contains virtually all of Paracelsus' medical and philosophical writings, as well as Tintoretto's beautiful portrait of Paracelsus, which is often missing" (Heirs of Hippocrates no. 215). "Philippus Aureolus Theophratus Bobastus von Hohenheim, also known as Paracelsus, remains one of the most controversial and remarkable personalities of the Renaissance. He has been described as a quack, a magician, and astrologer, and alchemist, as well as a brilliant physician, prophet, and genius. Sir William Osler called him the 'Luther of medicine,' and Fielding Garrison lauded him as 'the most original thinker of the sixteenth century.' He was perhaps all of these ... "His introduction of a new concept of disease, based on the idea that each disease is due to a specific external cause, [was] to replace the ancient notion of disease as an internal idiosyncratic imbalance of humors. Paracelsus's new idea of disease led him to new modes of therapy, using specific agents (often chemically derived) to battle against specific diseases. His followers founded the school of iatrochemistry, which flourished in Europe over the next century. Paracelsus made ether-like preparations that he used as sedatives and narcotics, and he introduced laudanum (tincture of opium) into the pharmacopeia. He advocated the use of minerals as therapeutic agents, including mercury, lead, copper sulfate, and antinomy. As a clinician, he was the first to describe congenital syphilis. He also gave the first description of cretinism, which he linked with goiter, and this in turn he connected to the mineral content of water. He studied the disease of minders and metallurgists and wrote the first monograph on an occupational disease. Forty years before Johann Weyer, he described the clinical manifestations of epilepsy, mania, and hysteria in a manner that was not improved on until Philippe Pinel and Jean-Étienne-Dominique Esquirol in the nineteenth century. In an age when the mentally ill were viewed as possessed by the devil and burned at the stake, he advocated humane treatment ... "As a surgeon, he treated wounds successfully using conservative methods, in contrast to the common practice of cauterization with boiling oil. He was the first to agree with the fourteenth-century French surgeon Henri de Mondeville that wounds must be kept clean, and Garrison described him as 'almost the only asepsist between Mondeville and Lister.' "Paracelsus was a voluminous writer ..., but his controversial views and antagonistic personality alienated publishers, and only a few of his books appeared during his lifetime." (Haskell F. Norman in One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine).

        Histoire des guerres civiles des espagnols dans les Indes, suivi de Suite des guerres civiles des espagnols dans le Peru

      Second French edition bringing together these two texts of Garcilaso de la Vega appeared for the first time in Spanish in 1650. Title frontispiece representing the foreground the landing of Spanish troops in the US and the second the beleaguered indigenous population at the heart of a city fire. In the lower part, a banner with the inscription "Quid non mortalia pectora COGIS auri sacra fames", taken from the Aeneid of Virgil and translated by Molière "O accursed hunger for gold, up where you do strength-Point to bring the heart of men. " Book decorated with banners and historiated initials.Bound in full vellum, flat spine decorated the head of a title to the almost erased pen. A dull corner, expertly restored title page in padding, pale wetting at the bottom margin on the latest notebooks.Bookplate family Nordkirchen pasted on the first contreplat. Ex-dono on the title page the initials "EHL".Illegitimate child of a conquistador and an Inca princess, raised in two different cultures, Garcilaso de la Vega (1539-1616) offers a unique view of the Inca civilization rejecting a Eurocentric vision. If in his royal Comment, published for the first time in France in 1633, de la Vega presented the history of the Inca rulers, he proposes here a story of conflict with lively Spanish settlers after their arrival in Peru. It is for him to translate the upheaval caused by these wars, both Aboriginal and both for the Spaniards. In his address to the reader, de la Vega explains that the Inca rulers had managed to found an empire made up of "the Virtues Morales, Policy, & Military"; the arrival of settlers and execution of Atahualpa - last independent emperor - upsets the established order and is seen as the expression of "Ambition" and "Greed" of these "new Hostes". De la Vega presents these events as an epic, seeking to show the reader "the various effects in this History, entertaining in Wonderland, and where the Author is studying to play their role in this scene the main of those who were the real actors. " Continuity of his first major work on the history of the Incas, kings of Peru, history of civil wars of Spanish in India offers the reader a wide panorama of Peruvian history in the few years following the conquest.Beautiful copy of major importance in the historiography of the Spanish conquest of Peru.

        Amstelodami celeberrimi Hollandiae emporii delineatio nova

      1658. Splendida veduta prospettica, a volo d'uccello, di Amsterdam, durante il secolo d'oro olandese. La mappa è orientata a sud-ovest, e mostra il centro della città racchiusa all'interno delle mura medievali. I nuovi confini della città e il nuovo sistema di canali sono raffigurati con fortificazioni costruite sulla destra e disegnate con linee tratteggiate per mostrare l'area che doveva essere collegata al termine della costruzione. Migliaia di edifici piccoli sono mostrati divisi dal fiume Amstel, e molti mulini a vento punteggiano l'area esterna della città. Ai margini di destra e sinistra, una dettagliata legenda con 110 luoghi notabili. In basso, in primo piano, numerose barche a vela e banchine riempiono il porto. In alto a sinistra campeggia lo stemma della città, mentre a destra. Questa lastra di Janssonius è molto simile a quella omonima del Blaeu pubblicata nell'Atlante delle città, rispetto alla quale esclude la dedica e l'imprint in basso a sinistra. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare dell'edizione G. Leti del 1690. This attractive bird's-eye plan of Amsterdam shows the city during it's Golden Age as one of the leading trading empires of Europe. The plan shows the city center enclosed within the medieval town walls. The new expanded city limits and canal systems are depicted with fortifications built-out on the right and drawn in dotted lines to show the area to be enclosed on completion of the construction. Thousands of tiny buildings are shown divided by the Amstel river, with the stock exchange and fish market at center, and many windmills dotting the outer city wall. At left and right there is an impressive key with 110 numbered locations. In the foreground, numerous sailing ships and docks fill the busy port. The city's coat of arms is at left. Jansson's map is nearly identical to Bleau's version published in Groot Toonneel der Steden (Town Atlas of the Low Countries) but excludes the dedication and imprint at bottom left. Example from G. Leti edition, of 1690. Copperplate, finely hand colured, in very good condition. Amsterdam Amsterdam Koeman II, Ja12 (73). 540 430

        EPITOME DE LA VIDA, ACCIONES, Y MILAGROS DE S. ANTONIO,

      - natural de la Ciudad de Lisboa, que vulgarmente se llama de la de Padua. Ilustrada con breues ponderaciones, añadidos los Elogios con que celebraron este Santo, Sumos Pontifices, Cardenales, Padres antiguos, y otros Autores graues. DEDICADO AL MISMO SANTO. [Vinheta xilografada com a imagem do santo]. Por el P. M. Fr. Miguel Pacheco Regular de la Orden de N. S. Jesu Christo, y Administrador del Hospital Real de S. Antonio de los Portugueses de Madrid. EN LISBOA CON LICENCIA. En la Officina de Henrique Valente de Oliueira. 1658. In 8º (de 14,2x9,5 cm) com [8], 250, [21] pags. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível (proveniente de palimpsesto de uma bula papal) com o título da obra manuscrito na lombada. Ilustrado com uma gravura xilografica de Santo António ao centro da folha de rosto. Exemplar com um leve vestigio de humidade à cabeça das folhas e vestigio de etiqueta comercial na dianteira da folha de rosto. Segunda edição, a primeira foi publicada em Madrid, por Julian de Paredes no ano de 1646. Esta obra foi posteriormente traduzida em portugês 2 vezes, sendo a primeira impressa em 1732 por Miguel Lopes Ferreira (escrivão dos contos do reino) e a segunda em 1735, pelo Padre José Pereira Baião. (vide Inocêncio VI, 241 e V, 96). Obra escrita e impressa em Madrid, pelo representante da Ordem de Cristo na corte espanhola, durante o périodo da Restauração da Independência portuguesa. O autor publicou também em 1675 a Vida da infanta D. Maria, filha de D. Manuel I. Obra que incide na vida e milagres de Santo António. No entanto o autor remonta a sua história até aos seus avós que eram da mesma familia de Godofredo de Bulhões, Duque da Lorena e Rei de Jerusalém. O autor recapitula a história de Portugal e da Europa quando descreve as gerações que precederam Fernando de Bulhões, que mudou o nome em António. Este santo, segundo o autor tem a ver com a 'estima' entre as pessoas, no entanto trata-se de um santo impiedoso para com os burlões e burlonas, vigaristas de toda a espécie que tem de ter um especial cuidado em não invocar o seu nome em vão (vide pags. 169-170). Santo António converteu os Albigenses (os Cátaros no Sul de França) pela palavra, e reformou os costumes depravados do seu tempo (vide pag. 240-241). Inocêncio VI, 245: «FR. MIGUEL PACHECO, Freire da Ordem militar de Cristo, cuja regra professou no convento de Tomar a 7 de Março de 1606.
