GÓNGORA, Luis de
Brusselas, Francisco Foppens 1659 - 4º menor (16,2 x 21,9 cm) 8 h. inc. port. con grabado calcográfico, 650 p., 10 h. de tabla. Pasta española del siglo XVIII, lomo liso, hierros dorados, y tejuelo rojo: obras de gongora. Magnífico ejemplar, muy limpio y marginoso de esta cuidada y estimada edición del poeta más influyente y original del Siglo de Oro español. Su producción poética, como sucedía en la época no fue publicada hasta después de su muerte, eso sí tuvo una amplia difusión a través de copias manuscritas y contribuciones sueltas recogidas en diferentes colecciones. 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. Conceptos que acabaron por relegar su poesía hasta que la revalorizaron los poetas de la llamada Generación del 27. Palau, 104633 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(Fine de Brianville, Claude Oronce.
. . VD17 23:641786Y; HKJL II, 407. - Sehr seltenes heraldisches "Lehrspiel" (über KVK für uns nur 4 Expl. nachweisbar, davon 2 ohne die Kupfer). Gegenüber der 1659 in Lyon erschienenen Originalausgabe sind erhebliche Änderungen vorgenommen worden. So wurden im deutschen Sprachraum mehr oder weniger unbekannte Adelshäuser durch einheimische ersetzt. Deshalb wird auf dem Titel auch darauf verwiesen, dass das Buch lediglich der Idee des eigentlichen Autors Claude Oronce Fine de Brianville (1608-1674) folge. Diese "Idee" ist recht einfach. Es gibt 52 Tafeln (Karten), die alle das Wappen eines Herrscherhauses zeigen. Dieses wird zusätzlich auf der Spielkarte heraldisch korrekt beschrieben. In der linken oberen Ecken des Blattes ist der Farbwert der Karte angebracht. Zu jeder Karte gibt es im Buch ein erläuterndes Kapitel zum Wappen selbst sowie zur Geographie und Geschichte der jeweiligen Herrschaften. Jedes Kapitel ist um die Zuordnung zu erleichtern in der Überschrift ebenfalls mit dem Farbwert gekennzeichnet. Eine interessante Interpretation der Kupfer liefert Hans Legband, der sie in Beziehung zur Ständeordnung des Deutschen Reichs setzt und dabei eine italienische Ausgabe ausführlich beschreibt (Zu den Quaternionen der Reichsverfassung. S. 495ff. In: Archiv für Kulturgeschichte, Bd. 3 (1905) - Online abrufbar). Da in der ersten französischen Auflage einige Adelige moniert hatten, dass ihre Wappen dem Kartenwert "Bube" bzw. "Valet" zugeordnet worden waren, änderte der Autor die Bezeichnung in der zweiten Auflage in "Chevalier". Dies ist in der deutschen Ausgabe übernommen wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Magnífico ejemplar encuadernado de época en pergamino. En la lomera tejuelo en rojo. =Entre todos los libros españoles que aprovechan la estructura discursiva emblemática, el de don Diego Saavedra Fajardo es el que mejor trasluce las preocupaciones del mundo hispánico de su momento. Fondo histórico y político concreto de la España de la primera mitad del siglo XVII. =En 1640, cuando aparece la primera edición de la Idea de un príncipe político cristiano representada en cien empresas, la disgregación del Imperio español es un hecho evidente en las sublevaciones de Cataluña y Portugal, culminación de una larga serie de conflictos que, desde la asunción del poder por el conde-duque de Olivares, se van intensificando en todos los frentes. El conocimiento directo y en primera persona de las complejidades de la negociación política, no siempre inmaculada, unido a una reflexión moral plegada a los valores de la Contarreforma, más el destilado de amplias lecturas, desembocan en una obra cuyo primer propósito será orientar e instruir al buen gobernante.

Leopold I; Maria Theresia;
Good. 1659-1798. Hardcover. Very rare collection of 139 original 17th to 18th century royal orders (patents). The overwhelming majority are 18th century, and a significant number are orders by Maria Theresia, each in Gothic print and carrying the German Seal "L. S." There are also patents of Leopold I, Sixth Earl of God (presumably William Stanley) , and other nobility of the Holy Roman Empire. Of the 139 documents, 34 are bound as folding plates that are suitable for framing. The remaining 105 patents range from 2 pages to several pages in length, one of which carries a red wax nobility seal. All documents are in German language. The vast majority carry a handwritten notation in antiquated 17th century ink giving the date the orders were issued or delivered, typically on the last page or back side of the patent. There may be other information in the handwritten notes and signatures, but because it is in German and handwriting is often difficult to make out, cannot be certain what the notes say or names signed. Note: the signatures are not at the end of the documents, but rather are either at the top of the first page or the reverse side, often upside down. However, they appear to be of possible significance as if perhaps they were by officials in charge of recording the delivery or date of issuance of the documents. Many of these patents contain woodcut headers and/or footers including what may be a few Coats of Arms. The documents appear to be arranged in random order (not chronological). The first two documents have worming in the lower right margin extending into the te … [Click Below for Full Description]

(London), 4 x 6 inches tall full leather bound, blind stamped floral design to covers, four raised bands and gilt ruling to spine, decorative endpapers, [16], 312 pp. Minor rubbing to covers. Boards very slightly bowed. Apart from minor staining to the margins of the last few leaves, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of a rare early English printing of this spiritual classic. The English Short Title Catalog records copies at only six institutions in North America - the Folger Shakespeare, Yale, Georgetown, the Newberry, University of Texas and UCLA. References: Wing (2nd ed.), H3882; Thomason, E.1791[1]; ESTC No. R209684. ~Z~ Walter Hilton (circa 1340/45-1396) was an English Augustinian mystic. He appears to have received a legal education, possibly at the University of Cambridge, but in the early 1380s he turned away from the world and became a solitary. Some time later, he joined a religious comunity; 1386 is often suggested as the date of his entry as an Augustinian Canon Regular into Thurgarton Priory, in Nottinghamshire. He wrote most of his best known works thereafter, including this, The Scale of Perfection, which was probably completed in the late 1380s. The first book of The Scale is addressed to a woman recently enclosed as an anchoress, providing her with appropriate spiritual exercises. The second book, which opens by addressing itself to Hilton's former reader, who, he says, has further questions, seems from its style and content rather to be addresse … [Click Below for Full Description]

It continues in use to this day in parts of the Arab world. Through this encyclopedic work, the author exerted "perhaps a wider influence in the eastern and western hemispheres than any other Islamic thinker" (PMM). "The 'Qanun' [...] contains some of the most illuminating thoughts pertaining to distinction of mediastinitis from pleurisy; contagious nature of phthisis; distribution of diseases by water and soil; careful description of skin troubles; of sexual diseases and perversions; of nervous ailments" (Sarton, Introduction to the History of Science). The present part is dedicated to a discussion of feverish illnesses. - Binding bumped at extremeties.

The second series with 6 prints by Johannes de Ram (ca. 1647-1696) showing the Dutch convoy protecting trade ships, probably on their way to the Orient. The third (anonymous) series shows inhabitants of the Orient in some scenes trading with Dutch merchants and with Dutch ships in the background.

DONCKER, Hendrik.
Amsterdam, 1659. Original colour with later additions, with gold highlights. 435 x 540mm. A fine example. The first state of this impressive chart of the west coast of America, which was updated the following year to show the Caribbean coast of Central America. Orientated with north to the left, it shows from a promontory called 'Aguebela de Cato' just north of California south to near Arica in Chile. However it is for its representation of California that this chart is so important, as it 'depicts California as an island on a larger scale than any earlier sea chart' (Burden). Insets show two other great cartographical mysteries: the partial outline of Tasmania, according to Tasman; and the mythical island of Yedso to the north of Japan. A third insert shows the islands around the Ladrones. See KOEMAN Don 2 for the first atlas issue, in 'De Zee Atlas Of Water-Waerelt.'

[SOREL, Sieur de Souvigny, Charles].
Paris: Charles de Sercy, 1659. Duodecimo, contemporary speckled calf, spine gilt between raised bands. Very scarce: first edition of this description and history of an imagined kingdom, an allegorical satire on French court and society. Sorel (1597-1674) novelist and historian, wrote a vast array of works, many issued anonymously or pseudonymously: he 'professa toute sa vie pour les lettres une ardeur indefatigable' (NBG). This tremendous output has made a complete bibliography of his works a difficult undertaking, but even a brief overview shows his astonishing diversity: satires, histories, fables, etc. The Rélation Véritable is a satire on French mores, followed by Sorel's Discours sur la Nouvelle Allégorique, an approving comparison of Sorel's invented kingdom of Sophie and Antoine Furetière's earlier Nouvelle Allégorique, ou Histoire des derniers troubles arrivez au royaume de l'eloquence. Slightly browned but a very good copy.
