        Idea principis christiano-politici 101 sijmbolis expressa ?.

      Amsterdam, Johann Jacob Schipper, 1659. - 103 nearly full-page engraved emblems. Engraved title, (11 ll.), 831, (1) pp., (2, 2 blank ll.). 12°, contemporary stiff vellum, edges rouged (some soiling, short split at top of upper joint). Slightly browned. Fine impressions of the engravings. ---- An early edition of this enormously popular work, with over a hundred nearly full-page, nicely engraved emblems, present in fine impressions. First published in Munich, 1640, the @Idea went through more than twenty editions in the original Spanish, and was translated into French, Italian, English and German as well as Latin. After Quevedo's @Política de Dios and the works of Gracián, it is the finest Golden Age treatise on statecraft, covering the education of a prince, his relations with ministers and subjects, his duties as head of state, and his duties to himself in old age and in preparation for death. The emblems at the beginning of each chapter are pictorial statements of the chapter's lessons. Saavedra wrote it as a Christian reply to Machiavelli's cynicism, for the benefit of Balthasar, son of Philip IV, who died too young to profit by its advice. "It is written in a compact, sententious style, with much quaint and curious knowledge of history, and with a large and not always judicious display of learning. But in many points it reminds us of Sir Walter Raleigh's 'Cabinet Council' and Owen Feltham's 'Resolves' . . . " (Ticknor III, 185).Saavedra Fajardo (1584-1648), a native of Algezares in Murcia, spent 40 of his 64 years in the diplomatic service.---- Palau 283483.

        Autograph letter signed "Giovanni Legrenzi" to a gentleman

      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. In quite good condition overall. . 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’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 1691–9) 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.

        Stehenden und liegendes Pferd, im Hintergrund ein Gutshof, nach einer Radierung von K. Dujardin.

      - Bleistift, mit doppelter Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf Bütten, unten bezeichnet „nach Dujardin von W. Kobel"; auf braunen Papier montiert, dort links unten bezeichnet „W. Kobel.". 18,7:13,7 cm. Es ist bekannt, daß Kobell verschiedentlich Radierungen (Aquatinta) anfertigte, so nach holländischen Meistern wie D. Maes (1659-1717), W. Romeyn (1624-1694), J. Ruisdael (1628/209-1682), P. Wouwerman (1619-1668), aber auch nach J. le Ducq (1629-1676/77) oder C. Lorrain (1600-1682) (vgl. Andreas Andresen, Handbuch für Kupferstecher I, Hildesheim/New York 1982, S. 760 ff.). Es waren gerade diese Kopien, die zunächst seinen Ruf als Künstler begründeten. K. Dujardin (1622-1678) hatte, wie andere der sogenannte „italo-holländische" Maler der Utrechter-Schule, Vorbildcharakter. Daher ist nicht auszuschließen, daß Kobell dessen Kompositionen auch als Vorlage für graphische Reproduktion wählte (vgl. Wichmann 1970, S. 35, S. 106). In seinen Schlachtenbildern bzw. Darstellung von Reitergefechten nutze Kobell ein solches am Boden liegendes, verwundetes oder sterbendes Pferd als wichtiges Gestaltungselement, das meist, wie in unserem Blatt, den Vordergrund bestimmt (vgl. Wichmann 1970, Kat. Nr. 469, 848 und 850). Wilhelm von Kobell war zunächst Schüler der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie. 1792 von Kurfürst Karl Theodor zum Hofmaler ernannt, zog er 1793 nach München, wo er – von wenigen Auslandsaufenthalten abgesehen (Wien 1809, Paris 1810) – bis zu seinem Tod ansässig war. 1814 erfolgte die Berufung zum Professor für Landschaftsmalerei an der Münchener Akademie, die er bis 1862 führte. 1817 wurde dem Künstler die persönliche, 1833 der erbliche Adel verliehen. Kobell zählt zu den wichtigsten Münchner Künstlern, der Hauptwerke des Biedermeier schuf.

A view of 17th century English common law. The first edition of the third part of Bulstrode's reports. Dean's Memo and Brown's Bibliography list the second edition of this text was in John Marshall's law notes. An interesting excerpt, "The poorest person living, were not the Law his refuge, would be yet more unhappy then his present condition can make him, for be he never so mean he is within its care, and the greatest Person living is not exempted from its Power" And, "But is is not a licentious Liberty which the Law gives us, but a real Freedom, a freedom from Slavery and Tyranny." (Speaking of the Liberties of England, referencing Lord Coke.) Bulstrode draws deeply from the Western legal tradition, citing Justinian's code, Coke, Hooker, Aristotle, the Magna Carta, Roman law, etc. Much of the legal basis of law he presents is familiar to modern English and American jurists, and political philosophers. Edward Bulstrode (c.1588-1659) was a noted English jurist. During the 1620s-1630s, he served on the courts of chancery, king's bench, and Star Chamber. Bulstrode's best know work was his law reports, 'covering king's bench suits in 1610 17, and 1625 6, as well as some poor-law assizes cases from the early years of Charles I. These were translated by Bulstrode from his original law-French notes into English, the first reports to have been so published by their author." - Wilfrid Prest, Bulstrode, Edward (c.1588-1659), Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004.

        Observationum medicarum... centuria quarta

      Lyons: Antoine Cellier, 1659. First Description of Aortic StenosisRIVIERE, Lazare (1589-1655). Observationum medicarum, & curationum insignium centurae tres. . . . Edited by Simeon Jacoz. 4to. [8], 311, [9]pp. Lyons: Antoine Cellier, 1659. 225 x 167 mm. Speckled sheep c. 1659, rubbed, small wormhole in front cover. Some foxing, browning & dampstaining, old repair to one leaf. Very good copy. Old signature and notes on endpapers. First Edition. Riviere was the first to describe stenosis of the aortic valve, from a case that he treated in 1646. GM 2727 cites Riviere's description of this condition in his Opera medica universa (1674), of which the present work is the first edition; the description appears here on p. 177, and is entitled "Cordis palpitatio & pulsus inaequalitas." Riviere also brought Paracelsian iatrochemistry into the curriculum of the University of Montpellier, and it was under his auspices that Alexander Fraser introduced the Harviean theory of the circulation into the University's curriculum in 1636. An edition of the present work was published in The Hague in the same year as this Lyons edition. As Riviere was French it is reasonable to presume that the Lyons edition was first. Hirsch.

The concision and reticence of the classics were as nothing to him. He was ambitious always to clothe them in the garb which they might have worn had they been not mere Englishmen, but fantastics of his own age ..." - The Cambridge History of English and American Literature.

        Morea. "Morea olim Peloponnesus

      Greece: Amsterdam Joahannes and Cornelius Blaeu. 1659. Original coloured, copper engraved map of the Peloponnesus from Joan Blaeu's "Atlas Mayor. sino Cosmographia Bavania en La Qual Exactamente Se descrive La tierre, El mar Y El Cielo " Double page; folio; Spanish text to verso. The map shows the Peloponnesus with the gulf of Corinth to the north, the islands of the Saronic Gulf and Cerigo/ Kithera Decorative old coloured title cartouche surmounted by the Ottoman flag; scale cartouche to upper right; ships to sea. From the scarce Spanish text edition of the" Atlas Major". Original colour; minor spotting worse to margins; left margin trimmed but ample; two worm tracks [approx 10mm] to each side blank margin; short split at lower centre fold & crease to lower left corner [backed with archival tape] . Willem Janszoon Blaeu [1571- 1668] had set up the business in Amsterdam 1596 following studies with the famous astonomer Tycho Brahe. In 1630 Willhem published his first atlas "Atlas Appendix", having published maritime cartography, books, charts and pilot guides for previous thirty years. Appointed Hydrographer of the V. O. C. ( United East India Company)in 1633 he died in 1638. leaving the company to his sons Joan and Cornelius Of Cornelius little is know; his name appearing on in the prefaces of books and atlases only until c1645. Dr Joan Blaeu [ 1596-1673] who had studied at Leiden took over the management of the business and established its fame. He was also appointed Hydrographer to the V. O. C. ( 1638), but his interests leant more to geography than maritime cartography. His aim was" a full description of heaven, earth and water" ( Koeman) which was unachievable. but his work produced the magnificent "Atlas Major" and the Town books of the Netherlands and Italy; works unsurpassed in history and modern times. The "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum " or "Atlas Novus" Willem Blaeu's great project enlarging the "Appendix" was advertised in 1634, was first published in a preliminary edition in 1635. (preface dated 10-3-1634) two volumes. The final edition comprising again two volumes with 109 & 99 maps respectively with German text also published 1635; an edition with Dutch text, (preface dated 22-4-1635) 104 & 103 maps; French text( preface dated 1-7-1635) 105 & 103 maps; and with Latin text (preface dated "ipsis Aprillis")105 & 102 maps. In 1640, after Willem's death a Third volume with French text and comprising 58 maps of Italy and 8 of Greece, was published; later the same year an edition was produced with Latin text. Still in 1640, variant editions in both languages were issued with an appendix of 4 maps of the British Isles as a precursor to the Fourth volume, which would be a complete description thereof. This would appear in 1645. The "Atlas Novus" was eventually extended to six volumes with the addition of a fifth volume, Scotland in 1654 and the following year a sixth the "Atlas Sinensis"of Martini. Joan Blaeu recognised that the wealthy patrons who would buy such an atlas were primarily concerned with display, thus aesthetic considerations were emphasised: the quality of the paper, binding, beautiful typography and bright colour, making maps from the Blaeu printing house amongst the most decorative of their time. The rare Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior occupies an extraordinary place within the Blaeu epic. In contrast to the editions in other languages, its volumes were printed serially over fifteen years, printed in more limited quantity, bore different titles, and were not numbered. The genesis of this project came with the decision to produce the Spanish Atlas Nuevo, with the volume relating to Scotland first published in 1657, and that on China the following year. In 1659 the volumes relating to Northern Europe, Eastern Europe and England were produced, along with second editions of the two volumes already published. Even before Joan Blaeu had made preparations to publish the Atlas Maior in other languages, he decided to turn the extant volumes of the Atlas Nuevo into the first five volumes of the Atlas Mayor. The long process of production meant that there were variations in title and imprint, as well as the collation of specific volumes. The volume on Spain was the last to be printed, before a fire which broke out in Blaeu's Gravenstraat workshop on the night of 22-23 February, 1672. It destroyed many of the original copperplates and printed sheets for the Atlas Mayor, and led to production of the projected eleventh volume, relating to Asia, Africa and America, being abandoned. The Atlas Mayor (the Spanish edition of the Atlas Maior) is the rarest edition of what De la Fontaine Verwey called "the greatest and finest atlas ever published".

      Reasons for the Dutch-Portuguese war, very rare. 1659. Hague. Henricus Hondius. In 4to (198 mm x 150 mm). 56 pp. Wrappers. Title slightly soiled, overall uniform toning.First Dutch edition. The Manifest is a translation of the Razam da guerra entre Portugal, e as Provincais Unidas dos Paizes Baxos (Lisbon 1657). Contains references to the troubles in Brazil between the Dutch Republic and Portugal, which resulted in 1661 in the loss of the colony by the Dutch. The Dutch-Portuguese War was an armed conflict involving Dutch forces in the form of the Dutch East India Company and the Dutch West India Company, against the Portuguese (1602 ?" 1663). During the conflict, Salvador de Bahia for instance, would change hands back and forth twice; raids and acts of privateering were common as well. The result of the war was that Portugal won in South America (Dutch Brazil) and Africa (Angola and São Tomé), and the Dutch were the victors in the Far East and South Asia. The war was concluded in 1661, and the terms were settled with the treatise "Articuli Pacis" (1663). The work includes a reply to Sousa de Macedo: Manifesto of the lies and fictions with which it is filled, and also a short and true account of the faithless and perjured proceedings of the King of Portugal and of his subjects, and that they are themselves the true reason and even the commencement of this war.Knuttel, 8173.

Ein wunderschöner alter Druck in hervorragendem Zustand.+++ Johannes Philippson von Schleiden (1506 / 1556), berühmt unter seinem Pseudonym Sleidanus, gelang es mit Herausgabe seines letzten und gerade einmal 50 Blatt umfassenden Werkes 'De quatuor summis imperiis' die Vorlage eines Standardwerkes. Dies hatte zur Folge, dass sein Werk nicht nur binnen kurzem in mehrere europäische Sprachen übersetzt wurde, auch erweiterten andere Autoren in seinem Namen und unter Fortführung des Titels sein Werk. Die Bedeutung des Ursprungswerkes von Sleidanus ist schnell erklärt. Es ist eine der ersten Universalgeschichten des westlichen Abendlandes, die im Wesentlichen basierend auf dem Quellenstudium des Alten Testaments, nicht nur die europäisch-christliche Monarchie, sondern auch die Babylonische, Griechische und Römische Geschichte eingehender würdigt. Noch im Jahre 1659 legt Gabriel Tzschimmer (1629-1694) Sleidanus' Werk in erheblich erweiterter Form auf, wobei die Ausgabe inzwischen auf über 600 Seiten angewachsen ist. So sind auch die Jahre ordentlich dazu gebracht und diesselben von Anno 1494 bis 1658 erweitert worden Ironischerweise vergisst Tzschimmer dabei die Ursprungsintention Sleidanus' und konzentriert sich in seiner Ergänzung ausschließlich auf die Geschichte der deutschen Kurfürstentümer. Dem Werk an sich hat es nicht geschadet, denn hierdurch liegt uns ein hervorragendes Quellenwerk der Deutschen Geschichte des 17. Jahrhunderts vor.

        Primavera y Flor de los mejores romances y sátiras que se han cantado en la Corte. Añadidas diversas poesías.

      Pablo, Pablo del Val 1659 - 12º (10,1 x 5 cm) 225 fols., 3 h. de tabla. Papel muy amarronado, algunas hojas resquebrajadas. Corto de margen lateral externo. Plena piel del XIX, greca gofrada en planos, lomo con nervios. La Primavera y flor de los mejores romances recopilados por el Licenciado Arias Pérez, se publicó por vez primera en Madrid, en 1621 pero ésta es la primera edición en contener las dos partes. De acuerdo con muchos estudiosos este cancionero goza de circunstancias especiales. Surgido a partir del Romancero General de 1604, de Pedro de Moncayo, para la fecha de su edición tanto público como poetas sentían ya cansancio del género del romance, el cual, según él, sufre una involución. La Primavera y flor ofrece ya un nuevo tipo de romance, más ligero y accesible que los de antaño, ligereza que comparten otras formas estróficas cancioneriles emparentadas con los romances. El anonimato de estos nuevos poemas ha sido arduamente combatido por los filólogos, quienes coinciden en el liderazgo de Lope y Góngora, con algunas atribuciones de romances jocosos y satíricos a Quevedo. Sin embargo, las quintillas incluidas en la Primavera, permanecen entre los poemas definitivamente anónimos. El recopilador, Pedro Arias Pérez, con ser un personaje oscuro del que no se ha sabido gran cosa, logró que su colección fuese sumamente popular durante casi cincuenta años, es decir, aproximadamente hasta 1670. Irradiadas desde Madrid, las cinco ediciones conocidas de la Primavera llegan a todos los centros urbanos de su tiempo en la Península, algunos de los cuales darán a luz numerosas reediciones. El gusto por la poesía culta es indiscutible, porque de hecho en estos cancioneros es el poeta cortesano, identificable o anónimo, el protagonista. Otra característica aparentemente contradictoria es que al lado de la novedad de estos poemas pastoriles se conserve un cierto arcaísmo de muchos de ellos, lo que se explica como un remanente del llamado por él pre-petrarquismo del siglo XV. [Ecos cancioneriles en poetas novohispanos del siglo XVII, Rocío Olivares Zorrilla] Es obra muy rara en todas sus primeras ediciones. De ésta tan sólo se conserva un ejemplar en España, en la BNM, según el CCPB. Palau, 16537, Salvá, nota al 334 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Pocos poetas han suscitado una polémica tan encrespada y significativa. El “Gongorismo” fue una auténtica piedra arrojada al lago de los círculos cortesanos. Góngora creó una nueva forma lírica basada en la ornamentación de lo externo y el hermetismo del contenido.
