Montemayor, Jorge de.
Nürnberg, Michael Endter, 1661. - Zweite deutsche Ausgabe des bedeutenden europäischen Schäferromans in der Bearbeitung Harsdörffers, so zuerst 1646 erschienen; beide Ausgaben sind äußerst selten. Der Roman war bereits 1619 von Kuefstein übersetzt und veröffentlicht worden. Harsdörffer überarbeitete diesen Text, passte ihn den Lebensverhältnisen des städtischen Patriziats an und fügte als Teil 3 die deutsche Fassung von Gil Polos 'Los cinos libros de la Diana enamorada' (1564) hinzu, die er unter Berücksichtigung der lat. Fassung von Caspar von Barths 'Erotodiscalus' (1625) übersetzte. Der unvollendete Roman Montemayors (1559) mit seinen Liebesgeschichten in ländlicher Szenerie war von größtem Einfluss auf die europäische Schäferdichtung. Dieses spanisch geschriebene Buch des Portugiesen Montemayor (um 1520-1561) war das erste Werk einer neuen Gattung auf der Iberischen Halbinsel, die Sannazaro ('Arcadia' 1504) in Anknüpfung an den Hirtenroman 'Daphnis und Cloe' in die europäische Literatur wiedereingeführt hatte. "Unter dem Einfluß der 'Diana' des Montemayor entstanden sowohl die 'Arcadia' (1590) des Engländers Philip Sidney, die ihrerseits in Deutschland von Martin Opitz bearbeitet wurde, als auch die 'Astrée' (1610) des Franzosen Honoré d'Urfé" (KNLL). "Mit der Hauptfabel des Romans, der unglücklichen Liebe des Schäfers Sereno zur Schäferin Diana, sind mehrere Nebengeschichten verbunden. Trotz der vorherrschenden Idyllik spielt dies alles nicht in einem erfundenen Arkadien, sondern ist hineingestellt in die Berge der spanischen Landschaft León . Die Naturschilderungen er … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pieter MORTIER (1661–1711). Amsterdam 1695. Copper engraving with full original colour and mounted text in the middle (Margins partly re-backed with small repaired tear in the lower right corner, otherwise in a good condition): 42,5 x 52,5 cm (21 x 17 inches).
- Highly decorative folio size table of contents with stunning original colour from Atlas Nouveau by Pierre Mortier, shows Atlas on the left-hand side, the personification of Geography on the right, and an interior of a library with ancient geographers on the bottom. Pierre Mortier (1661-1711) was one of the most prominent commercial map publishers of his era. A Dutchman of French Huguenot extraction he maintained privileged contacts in Paris, and found ways to find financial advantage from new French geographic discoveries. Based in Amsterdam, Mortier benefitted from the Dutch Republic’s highly developed print market and lenient censorship laws. After his death, the business was continued by his heirs who later forged a partnership with Jean Covens, forming the firm of Covens & Mortier, which operated until 1774.

- Das Book of Kells enthält so manche Miniatur des frühen Mittelalters, die zu den schönsten zählt, die je geschaffen wurde. Bis auf zwei sind alle Seiten dieser Handschrift mit einer fast unbeschreiblichen Fülle symbolträchtiger und mystischer Malerei ausgeschmückt. Die Handschrift beeindruckt sowohl in der Anzahl als auch in der Größe der Pergamentseiten, die durchschnittlich die Maße von 33 x 25 cm aufweisen. Es wurde nicht für den täglichen Gebrauch und auch nicht für das Studium gefertigt, sondern sollte ein geheiligtes Werk sein und an hohen Festtagen auf dem Altar das Wort Gottes repräsentieren. Das Book of Kells wurde vermutlich im Kloster Iona um das Jahr 800 von unbekannten, genialen Künstlern geschaffen. Ein erster Hinweis auf seine Existenz findet sich in einem Bericht von 1007 über einen Diebstahl in der Kirche von Kells, in dem das Buch "Das große Evangeliar des Columcille, die Hauptreliquie der westlichen Welt" genannt wird. Bald darauf wurde das in Kells vergrabene Buch aufgefunden. Es blieb in Kells, bis man es während der Regierungszeit Cromwells aus Sicherheitsgründen nach Dublin brachte. Um 1661 übergab es Henry Jones, Bischof von Meath, dem Trinity College. Seither wird es in der Bibliothek des College in Dublin gehütet.Das Book of Kells enthält vor allem die vier Evangelien. Aber auch andere Texte fanden Aufnahme: etwa am Anfang der Handschrift Kanontafeln, die die Konkordanzverzeichnisse enthalten, die von Eusebius von Cäsarea zusammengestellt worden waren, oder für das Kloster Kells wichtige besitzrechtliche Urkunden. Der lateinische Text wurde in st … [Click Below for Full Description]

A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591-1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.

Ignatius a Jesus.
Rome, typis Sacrae Congregationis de Propaganda Fide, 1661.. Small 4to. (2), 60 pp. Modern contemporary-style ivory vellum, handwritten title on spine.. Extremely rare first edition of this precious Persian grammar printed in Rome on the presses of the "Propaganda Fide". The third work of this kind, preceded only by those of Louis de Dieu (Leiden 1639) and of Greaves (London 1649). Willems notes that G. B. Raimondi, as early as 1614, produced a grammar in Rome for the use of missionaries which remained virtually unknown in the west, but this existed only in manuscript. The grammars of Greaves and of the present author were both "largely based on De Dieu" (Smitskamp). - Ignazio di Gesu (Carlo Leonelli) was a 17th century Italian missionary. He "belonged to the Order of Discalced Carmelites, and preached the Gospel in Turkey, Asia Minor, Armenia, and Persia, where he stayed over a long period. He especially tried to convert to the Catholic faith the so-called sectarians of Saint John (in eastern Mendai). He returned to Rome in 1650" (cf. Hoefer). An account of his travels was included in the collection of Thevenot. His present small work, though not the work of an orientalist nor indeed a scholar, is still a true grammar based on elements collected during the author's journeys. - Some light foxing and browning as common, slight abrasion on title (vignette very slightly affected), lacks final blank leaf. Old library shelfmark in ink to title. A very good copy. - Brunet III, 405. Schwab 863. Smitskamp 310 c.

APOLLONIUS Pergaeus and ARCHIMEDES (attributed to)
Florence, Giuseppe Cocchini, 1661. Folio (348 x 230 mm), pp [xxxvi] 415 [1, blank], with numerous woodcut diagrams in text, title in red and black, correction slips pasted on pp 300, 312 and 352; a very clean, crisp, large-paper copy in contemporary Italian brown morocco, gilt fillets and panels on sides and gilt-panelled spine, gilt edges. First edition, a beautifully bound, large-paper copy, of books V-VII of the Conics, the most original parts of Apollonius's treatise on conic sections. Books I-IV were translated and published in 1537, and at the time it was believed that the remaining books were lost. 'In the first half of the seventeenth century the Medici family acquired an Arabic manuscript containing Books V-VII of Apollonius's Conics, which had been lost up to that time. In 1658, with the help of the Maronite scholar Abraham Ecchellensis, Giovanni Borelli prepared an edited Latin translation of the manuscript, which was published three years later. This was a valuable addition to the mathematical knowledge of the time, for whereas Books I-IV of the Conics dealt with information already known to Apollonius's predecessors, Books V-VII were largely original. Book V discusses normals to conics and contains Apollonius's proof for the construction of the evolute curve; Book VI treats congruent and similar conics and segments of conics; Book VII is concerned with propositions about inequalities between various functions of conjugate diameters' (Norman catalogue).'The fifth book reveals better than any other the giant intellect of its author.

A very good copy. DAVID BLONDEL (1591 - 1655), was a French Protestant clergyman, historian and classical scholar. In 1650 he succeeded G. J. Vossius in the professorship of history at Amsterdam. His works were very numerous; in some of them he showed a remarkable critical faculty, as in his dissertation on Pope Joan (1647, 1657), in which he came to the conclusion, now universally accepted, that the whole story is a mere myth. Considerable Protestant indignation was excited against him on account of this book. His work on the Sibyls of classical times was first published in French in 1649.

(1 blank), 792, (18) pp. 756, (24) pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine titles; all edges of vol. 2 sprinkled in red.. Early duodecimo reprint edition of Della Valle's complete "Viaggi", published while the first complete edition was still under the press. Della Valle's account is highly sought after as one of the earliest printed sources for the early history of Dibba, the coastal region at the northeastern tip of the United Arab Emirates, today ruled by the Emirates of Fujairah and of Sharjah. - Pietro della Valle (1586-1652) left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine, proceeding to Baghdad and then into Persia, where he married and sojourned in the court of Shah Abbas. While staying with the Sultan of Bandar Abbas, he "met the son of the ruler of Dibba who was visiting. From this he learned that Dibba had formerly been subject to the kingdom of Hormuz, but was at that time loyal to the Safavids who in 1623 sent troops to Dibba, Khor Fakkan and other ports on the southeast coast of Arabia in order to prepare for a Portuguese counter-attack following their expulsion from Hormuz (Jarun). In fact, the Portuguese under Ruy Freire were so successful that the people of Dibba turned on their Safavid overlords, putting them all to death, whereupon a Portuguese garrison of 50 men was installed at Dibba. More Portuguese forces, however, had to be sent to Dibba in 1627 as a result of an Arab revolt. Curiously, two years later the Portuguese proposed moving part of the M … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemp. richly gilt calf, leading edges and spine gilt (tiny defect to upper spine-end and hinge). Marbled pastedowns.. First edition of this rare work on precious stones and pearls found in the East and West Indies, written by a Parisian "marchand orphevre". Dedicated to "La Grande Mademoiselle" Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans, Duchess of Montpensier and niece of Louis XIII, with her finely engraved portrait by L. Boissevin (which, according to Graesse, is frequently lacking). This "very early, and important treatise on gemstones, gold & silver" (Sinkankas) includes a chapter dedicated exclusively to pearls, a subject with which the author was especially familiar (cf. ibid.), and the Persian Gulf is stated as one of the main locations of pearl fishing: "on pesche les perles en divers endroits du monde. Dans le Golfe Persique, principalement aux environs de l'Isle d'Ormus & Bassora: aupres de Baroyn [i.e., Bahrain], Catiffa, Iuffa, Camaron, & autres lieux de ce Golfe [...]" (p. 74). "The first chapter attempts to reconcile differing views of various writers, as cited by Berquen, on the origin of gemstones and precious metals, with following chapters taking up the principal gemstones, and some minor ones, as diamond, sapphire, topaz, ruby, spinel, emerald, amethyst, aquamarine, hyacinth, opal, chrysolite, iris, vermeille, garnets, carnelian, turquoise, quartz varieties, pearl, coral and amber, and lastly, a chapter on g … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small octavo (6 1/2 x 4 1/16 inches; 164 x 103 mm). [viii], 103, [1, blank] pp., one fold-out plate. Roman and italic type. Woodcut initials, head- tailpieces.

Later endpapers with original marbled endpapers bound in. An excellent copy of a very rare book. Housed in a fleece-lined half black morocco clamshell case. "During 1661 a further work was published by Kircher which brought a refreshingly rational approach to a problem worrying the people of Naples. Mysterious crosses had been appearing on clothing and all manner of fabrics. In this Diatribe de prodigiosis crucibus Kircher proved that the suspected indication of heavenly wrath was little more than the presence in the air around Vesuvius-dominated Naples of minute specks of volcanic ash, settling on the texture of woven cloth." (John Fletcher. A study of the life and works of Athanasius Kircher, p. 51).
