Firenze: Nella Stamperia S.A.S., 1658. |~||~||~||~||~| Very Rare First Edition. A superlative copy preserved in original condition of this exciting festival book, describing and illustrating the operatic performance of June 18, 1658, at the Teatro della Pergola in Florence. This was the third opera to be performed in the new theater. L'Hippermestra was commissioned to honor of the birth of the first son of Philip IV and Maria of Austria called Infante Felipe Próspero (1657-1661). The book was dedicated to "Don Luigi de Aro, Conte D'Olivares." Luis Méndez de Haro, Conde de Olivares (1598-1661), was the chief minister and favorite of Philip IV. He was the nephew and successor to the Conde Duque Gaspar de Olivares, chief minister of Spain during 1621-1643. The exceptional etched plates depict the stage sets of the principal scenes from the opera. L'Hippermestra was written by the Florentine poet Giovanni Andrea Moniglia to music already provided by the Venetian composer Francesco Cavalli. One plate is signed Sil. Allius fecit; identified in the second work Descrizione Della Pressa D'Argo (p. 32) as Silvio degli Alli, an artist working under the patronage of the Principe Cardinale Gio. Carlo di Toscana. Each of the large folding etchings depicts an elaborate scene with characters in costumes; the costumes for the leading character Ipermestra were donated by the Grand Duchess. The scenes are set within the architectural proscenium of the Teatro della Pergola, constructed two years earlier in 1656 by Ferdinando Tacca. It was the private theater/opera house of the Grand Duke and survives as one of the oldest extant Italian theatres. Its inaugural production was an opera buffa, called Il podestá di Colognole, by the author of L'Hippermestra, our G.A. Moniglia. An exceptionally fine copy. Very rare; three copies in OCLC worldwide for both titles: Ad. 1, Univ. of CA. Berkeley, Beinecke Library, Brandeis Univ.

      [Madrid?, not before August 1658]. Folio (283 x 202 mm). 2 parts: [5], 49; 29 leaves. Text of part 1 in Italian, printed in italic type with wide margins for side-notes (legal citations and documents) in Spanish in roman type; part 2 in Spanish in two columns. Two woodcut capitals. Occasional light foxing. bound by the papal bindery for pope alexander vii in contemporary Roman red gold-tooled goatskin, double fillet frame with flowering plant tools at inner corners, central papal arms built up from a number of tools including a tiara, keys, swags and heraldic charges, and with an angel?'s head, hanging bouquet tools, and ornamental fleurons or arabesques, spine with repeated fleuron tool, gilt edges (discreet restoration to head and tail of spine). Provenance: Pope Alexander VII (Fabio Chigi, r. 1655-1667); early clerk?'s note on title; ?"Doppio?" written in ink in an early hand on lower cover; large ink shelfmark on front pastedown; Cardelli of Rome, twin 18th-century armorial inkstamps on title (Bibliot. Com. Fran. M. Cardelli Rom[a]e). *** A remarkable association copy of two tracts defending Bernardino de Cárdenas, Bishop of Paraguay, in his bitter dispute with the Jesuits, which lasted over two decades, causing major difficulties for the Catholic Church. The Papal dedication and binding testify to the broad ramifications of what began as a local power struggle in one of the New World?'s poorest colonies but developed into a conflict bringing into play powerful alignments and highlighting some of the most pressing issues of the colonial era ? temporal versus religious power, the struggle between colonists and the seats of imperial government, and the exploitation of native Americans and their crucial role in colonial politics. A Franciscan friar and active preacher from upper Peru, Cardenas was appointed to the bishopric of Paraguay in 1638. The papal bulls consecrating his appointment were lost en route, and in 1641 Cardenas requested that he be consecrated by the bishop of the diocese of Córdoba. Overriding the objections of the Jesuits, who considered it obligatory to wait for the Holy See?'s approval, Cardenas obtained the backing of the civil authorities and took up office in Asuncion. For various reasons relations deteriorated between Cardenas, who was popular with the Paraguayan settlers, and the Jesuits, backed by the provincial Governor Don Gregorio de Hinestrosa, and in 1644 the bishop threatened to expel the entire order from Paraguay. At this point matters escalated quickly, with the settlers backing Cardenas, and the governor calling in a mission-trained Guaraní militia to defend the Jesuits (?"the formation of Guaraní militias trained by Catholic priests was a distinguishing feature of these [Jesuit] missions... Ethnic soldering ... was quite common throughout many Spanish colonies?" [Ganson, p. 47]). Cardenas was compelled to leave Paraguay on the grounds that his consecration had been invalid. But in 1647, upon the retirement of Hinestrosa, he returned, and when the governor?'s more moderate successor died in 1649, the residents of Asuncion named Cardenas himself Governor of the province. Foreshadowing conflicts to come, ?"it is said that upon accepting the post Cardenas declared ?"The voice of the people is the voice of God?" (Lopez, p. 61). He quickly decreed the expulsion of the Jesuits from the capital, and they were ejected by a mob. The viceroy of Peru supported the Jesuits and ordered their reinstatement; when Cardenas refused, the viceregal government sent a force of several hundred Guaraní against Asuncion; they quickly subdued Cardenas?'s militia (an event that was to mark the consciousness of Paraguayan settlers). Cardenas was first jailed and then exiled, and his supporters punished, but, continuing to protest his treatment, he obtained the backing of the Spanish, who were suspicious of the Jesuits?' loyalty since the order had strongly supported the Portuguese declaration of independence in 1640. Cardenas was finally reinstated as bishop of Asuncion in 1660, but, too old and frail to make the journey back to Paraguay, he remained in Upper Peru as bishop of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, until his death in 1668. Throughout these tempestuous years the paper mill was churning in Madrid. The Throughout these tempestuous years the paper mill was churning in Madrid. The present documents are among a few defenses of Cardenas which reached the Papal Court. The first tract is an Italian version, submitted to the Pope, of a defense action pleaded before the Council of the Indies in 1654 by Alonso Carrillo, attorney for the Royal Council of the Court of Spain. Carrillo?'s defense of the legitimacy of Cardenas?'s consecration contains an account of the events of Asuncion, including occasionally lurid details of its conquest by the Jesuits?' Guaraní army. The second tract, written by a cleric, provides legal opinions (the last dated August 1658) of prominent Spanish jurists approving Carrillo?'s representation of the case. Technically two separate works, and occasionally catalogued as such, the two tracts were issued together, as is evident from the title. Sabin records a third part, in 15 pages, which is absent from the recorded extant copies: presumably the copy he described was bound with one of the other tracts emanating from the case. Several of the tools on the present binding match tools associated with the papal binders, which are reproduced by G. V. Tolomei in Legatura romana barocca (cf. the tiara, keys, swag and fleuron in the second to last row on plate VII, and the second pair of fleurons in row 2, plate VI). A number of different versions of the same tool motifs can be traced to the Roman bindery or group of binderies often referred to, following Anthony Hobson, as the ?"Rospigliosi?" bindery, after one of its most prominent patrons (Cardinal Giulio Rospigliosi, later Clement IX), and which was patronized by royalty, aristocracy and dignitaries of the church. ?"The fact that there are some different versions of similar tools points to a large atelier, where a number of binders and finishers were at work simultaneously?" (M. Foot, Henry Davis Gift I, p. 330). The present binding predates the accession of the brothers Gregorio and Giovanni Andreoli to the post of official binders to the Vatican, in 1665. As Sabin noted, the publication of these memoirs was ?"most probably intended for private circulation,?" and copies are scarce. OCLC locates copies at the Lilly Library, Bibliothèque nationale de France, and Bibliothèque Ste. Geneviève, and of the 1654 Spanish edition OCLC lists copies at the JCB, Lilly Library, and National Library of Chile.

Lopez, The colonial history of Paraguay: the revolt of the Comuneros, 1721-1735, pp. 59-63; B. A. Ganson, The Guarani Under Spanish Rule in the Rio De La Plata (2003), p. 47.

"...In Italy, in the latter half of the sixteenth century, came a striking example of the difficulties which science still encountered even after the Renaissance had undermined the old beliefs. At that time John Baptist Porta was conducting his investigations, and, despite a considerable mixture of pseudo - science, they were fruitful. His researches in optics gave the world the camera obscura, and possibly the telescope; in chemistry he seems to have been the first to show how to reduce the metallic oxides, and thus to have laid the foundation of several important industries. He did much to change natural philosophy to a vigorous open science. The society founded by him for physical research, called themselves Otiosi (i.e., Men of Leisure) and made it a condition of membership that each man must have contributed a new discovery or fact in natural science. Their Accademia Secretorum Naturae was soon suspect, from its name and deeds, of dabbling in the occult. Della Porta was denounced to Pope Paul V and called to Rome to explain the reports of witches' salves and necromantic arts. Happily justifying his devout search for truth and his campaign against charlatans, he returned cautioned but unblemished and was able, later in life, to help establish and become Vice - President of the Academy of the Lynxes (its name symbolised the struggle of scientific truth against ignorance), of which Prince Federico Cesi was President and Galileo the most illustrious member". Notes taken from encyclopaedia. The date on the title page has a dropped 5 which at first glance looks like a 9, but is without doubt a 5. The name of the printer confirms this, as the printer changes to John Wright in the 1669 edition. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. POSTAGE AT COST.

Rarissima "edizione originale" di questa mitica opera, fra le più ricercate di tutta la storia della letteratura equestre, di cui offriamo soltanto la parte iconografica così composta: - antiporta incisa, a doppia pagina + 42 tavole, pure a doppia pagina, incise in rame e numerate. Magnifiche sono le illustrazioni, per numero e qualità: disegnate da Abraham van Diepenbeke di Anversa ed incise in rame da vari illustri artisti di questa città, le tavole sono impostate come vere e proprie composizioni pittoriche e, similmente a quelle del Pluvinel, fanno riferimento alla storia. Vi figurano: parecchi ritratti dell'A. nella sua apoteosi (su un carro trionfale trascinato da centauri e circondato da cavalli inginocchiati; in volo a cavallo circondato da cavalli seduti, ecc,), personaggi della sua famiglia, il Re Carlo II d'Inghilterra, come pure castelli, dimore, parchi, ecc., sullo sfondo. Per lo più le tavole rappresentano "des chevaux, des airs de manège, des haras, des chasses, des mors et des épérons, etc. Malgré les incorrections de dessin dans la représentation des chevaux - comme toujours à cette époque - ces planches ont une véritable valeur artistique..

I suoi interessi scientifici vengono allora contaminati da una forte tendenza al misterico; da questa sperimentazione nasce "Physica Curiosa", il suo testo più celebre.

Il lavoro di Keplero sulla camera oscura gli permise di risolvere uno dei più importanti enigmi sull'ottica del tempo: il funzionamento dell'occhio,  con l'immagine capovolta formata sulla retina. Egli correttamente confrontò la camera oscura con l'occhio partendo dall'idea che  Leonardo da Vinci aveva nell'identificare il ruolo della lente e la retina. Questo esperimento fu realizzato nel 1657 da  Kaspar Schott, con l'occhio di un bue. Come sappiamo, l'immagine sulla retina non è destinato ad essere 'visto' ma viene inviato attraverso il nervo ottico al cervello, dove viene tradotto. Esemplare con forti ossidazioni a molte pagine, dovute alla scadente qualità della carta.

All'interno, 21 tavole fuori testo incise su rame, 1 tavola sinottica ripiegata.                                      a supervisione dello scienziato Athanasius Kircher presso l'università di Würzburg. È noto a livello scientifico principalmente grazie ai suoi studi fisici concernenti i principi della meccanica; perfeziona poi le bacchette moltiplicatrici di Nepero, apportando un piccolo contributo a quello che può essere considerato un prototipo di macchina aritmetica. I suoi interessi scientifici vengono allora contaminati da una forte tendenza al misterico; da questa sperimentazione nasce "Physica Curiosa", il suo testo più celebre.

      London: Edward Dod, 1658. Fourth Edition. Three-Quarter Leather. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾. Book. [16] plus 468pp plus [16] Alph. Table plus 73 pp for Urn Burial and Garden of Cyrus essays. Modern 3/4 calf with marbled boards pristine. Tightly bound. Pages of Pseudodoxia have light soilage on some pages, and one page with small tear/chip in corner, but overall in fine condition. Some light dampstaining on bottom of final pages bound in (Garden of Cyrus) and a tiny wormhole affecting the top edge of some pages thereto, not affecting text. Otherwise, this is a fine copy overall. Includes a plate of four urns and another plate of geometric design before final essay. The key work, Pseudodoxia, is one of the precursors of the Enlightenment. Brown attempted to dispel superstitions, and under the influence of Bacon, apply reasoning, observation and objectivity to examine a host of old wive's tale, religious dogma, and the like.

        Animalium: Historia Sacra

      Amsterdam: Jan Jansson, 1658. 5th edition of a book very popular in its time, which includes natural histories of dragons, unicorns and many other seldom-seen beasties. 16mo in stiff vellum boards, probably original (though the endpapers are not), with leather stitching probably added later. Edges stained blue. The engraved title page depicts many creatures both familiar and strange. Good; the repair of the binding makes it quite stiff, broken at title page (1cm portion of title page attached to fep). Spot stains on rear board; some stains on outer pages but mostly very clean. The title page bears an interesting history of owners: at the bottom is written "Ad libros Johannis Mulleri pertice", probably the 1st owner; then there is "J.D. Mauser ex patr. libr. 1742"; also "Plagwitz - Leipzig 1880". All are written quite small. The type is very small here but well printed, by a publisher known for some early editions of the Mercator Atlas. 631 pp. + indices..

Together, with a most naked and punctual Relation of the late Bloudy Massacre, 1655. And a Narrative of all the following Transactions, to the Year of Our Lord 1658. All which are justified, partly by divers Ancient Manuscripts written many hundred Years before Calvin or Luther, and partly by other most Authentick Attestations. The true Originals of the greatest part whereof, are to be seen in their proper Languages by all the curious, in the Publick Library of the famous University of Cambridge. Collected and compliled with much pains and industry, By Samuel Morland, Esq. During his abode in Geneva, in quality of His Highness Commissioner Extraordinary for the Affairs of the said Valleys and particulary for the Distribution of the Collected Moneys, among the remnant of those poor distressed People.

      London, Henry Hills, for Adoniram Byfield 1658. (68) 709 p. Rebound half Leather with ribbed back and richly decorated with stamps, Folio (with multiple engravings in the text, without the map and portrait of the author. Samuel Morland 1625-1695, was a diplomatist, mathematician and inventor. In 1655 Morland was sent by Oliver Cromwell on a mission to Italy to protest at actions taken against the Waldensians by the Duke of Savoy. During his residence in Geneva, Morland prepared minutes, and provured records, vouchers and attestations from which he might compile a correct history of the Waldenses. In 1656 Morland arrived at Whitehall, and shortly afterwards received the thanks of a select committee appointed by Cromwell to inquire into his proceedings. Two years later he published this work, 'The History of the Evangelical Churches of the Valleys of Piemont &c.' This volume, which was illustrated with sensational prints of the supposed sufferings of the Waldenses, 'operated like Fox's Book of Martyrs'.).

Das Stück Peter Squentz, hier mit Noten, ist ein wichtiges frühes Beispiel für die Rezeption von Shakespeare in Deutschland. "The English influence is beyond question, and is confirmed by the figure of the Pickelhäring. The English Comedians presumably performed the Midsummer Night's Dream in Germany... Gryphius' text often departs very far from the original, but some passages read almost like a translation..." (Faber d.

        D. Justiniani, Sacratissimi Principis, Institutionum, sive Elementorum, libri quatuor, Notis perpetuis multo, quam hucusque, diligentius illustrati, Curo & studo Arnoldi Vinnii I. C. Editio postrema ab Auctore recognita.

      Amstelaedami Ex Officina Elzdeviriana 1658 - 12mo, 133 x 71 mm.s, pp. [xxiv], 643 [644 - 646 blank], with fine additional engraved title-page, with the Elzevir device as vignette on the printed title-page, contemporary red morocco, gilt-ruled border on each cover, spine richly gilt in compartments, all edges gilt; slight wear to base of spine, but generally a very good and attractive copy, with two early, probably contemporary hand-written ownership labels on the front paste-down end-paper: "Jullienne" and "J. B. Q. Malaclie." It would be pleasant to think that the first label and autograph is that of the art collector Jean de Jullienne (1686 - 1766). Arnoldus Vinnius (1588 - 1657) was one of the leading jurists of Europe in the 17th century, and this commentary on Justinian is his most important work. His commentary on Justinian, with the text, was first published in 1642, and this was the first edition to be published after his death. In his autobiography, My Own Life, David Hume noted that his "Family [had] a Notion that the Law was a proper Profession for me: But I found an unsurmountable Aversion to every thing but the Pursuits of Philosophy and general Learning; and while they fancyed that I was poring over Voet and Vinnius, Cicero and Virgil were the Authors which I was secretly devouring."

        Guerras Civiles de Inglaterra y trágica muerte de su Rey Carlos.

Primera edicion española de la obra del conde ferrariense Bisaccioni, gentilhombre de Luis XIV y perfecta encarnación del aventurero de altura. La traducción se debe al Preceptor de Carlos II, Don Diego López de Albornoz, quien utiliza para aleccionadores fines hispánicos lo sucedido en Inglaterra a la cabeza de Carlos I (1600-1649) haciendo ver cuan útil sea la Historia al Príncipe «mostrando en agenos escarmientos lo que se deve seguir, lo que huir y lo que con buen arte se deve apartar».

William Style was one of the law reporters forced to cease publishing his law reports in Law French and he voices his criticism in the preface thus: "I have made these reports speak English, not that I believe they will be thereby more generally useful, for I have been always and yet am of opinion, that that part of the common law which is in English hath only occasioned the making of unquiet spirits contentiously knowing, and more apt to offend others than to defend themselves; but I have done it in obedience to authority, and to stop the mouths of such of this English age, who, though they be confessedly different in their minds and judgment, as the builders of Babel were in their language, yet do think it vain, if not impious, to speak or understand more than their own mother tongue." Reports printed in black letter. ESTC R7640. Wing S6099. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
