DV1702-69) BAÑOS DE VELASCO Y AZEBEDO (Juan).
En Madrid, por Mateo de Espinosa y Arteaga, 1670. - in-4. Frontispice. 15ff. 359pp. 4ff. Plein vélin à rabat, éléments décoratifs en bandelettes de parchemin, grand initiale "S" sur fond doré sur le plat supérieur (reliure postérieure dans le style Mudejar). Edition Originale de ce très rare livre d'emblèmes par le chroniqueur espagnol Juan Baños de Velasco y Acebedo (1615-1682). Grand admirateur de la pensée de Sénèque, Baños répond ici à l'oeuvre de Alonso Núñez de Castro "Séneca impugnado de Séneca en cuestiones políticas y morales" (1651), dans laquelle ce dernier avait tâché de mettre en évidence certaines contradictions supposées de la pensée du philosophe et homme d'Etat romain, né à Cordoue. Structuré autour de 23 questions, toutes illustrées d'une gravure sur cuivre et richement argumentées, l'ouvrage constitue une sorte de bréviaire politique où l'auteur formule une série de conseils politiques et moraux à l'usage du monarque, défendant avec ardeur la noblesse de sang comme vecteur de la vertu et pilier de la bonne gouvernance. Beau portrait de Juan de Austria en frontispice, par Pedro de Villafranca. 19 des 23 gravures que totalise le corps d'ouvrage sont signées Marcos Orozco, les quatre restantes sont l'oeuvre de Diego de Obregón. Bel ex-libris héraldique gravé sur un feuillet préliminaire, datant probablement de l'époque de la reliure. Brunissures, mais bon exemplaire par ailleurs, dans une spectaculaire reliure postérieure de style Mudejar. Palau, 23442. [Attributes: First Edition]

KIRCHER, Athanasius.
Amsterdam Jean Jansson à Waesberge, 1670. First edition in French, folio, [xiv], 367, [xii]pp., additional engraved title, engraved portrait, 2 folding maps, 23 engraved plates (3 folding) as per list, numerous engravings in the text, modern calf antique preserving old end-papers, a very good example. 'One of the most influential books in shaping the European conception of China in its day' (Löwendahl). 'Gathering his work from other members of the Society [of Jesuits], Kircher wrote one of the century's most influential treatises on China. His primary purpose was to establish the authenticity of the Nestorian monument discovered in Sian, and to that end he produced in print the original Chinese and Syriac inscriptions on the monument, the Chinese text in romanization, and finally a Latin translation and his explication of the Chinese and Syriac texts. In addition, Kircher included a sizeable description of China and other places in Asia. For example, in a section devoted to Christianity in China, he sketched all the old overland routes, including that of Grueber and d'Orville from Agra to Peking, as well as giving a description of Tibet. Following what he thought to be the spread of idolatry from the Near East to Persia, India, and finally to East Asia, Kircher described the religions of China, Japan, and India. There are several chapters on government, customs, geography, fauna, flora, and mechanical arts of China, and a very interesting scholarly discussion of the Chinese language. There is a long Chinese-Latin dictionary. Kircher's volume contains several beautiful pict … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longhi, Gioseffo.
Bologna, Longhi, [1670s]. 1065 x 578 mm. Cloth-backed engraved view on 2 sheets joined, letterpress text pasted below (4 columns in Italian: "Descrizione della Città di Alessandria d'Egitto") with publisher's imprint. Matted. Unrecorded in the standard bibliographies and without counterpart in western libraries: a unique, large-scale view of Alexandria as seen from the north. Formerly the most powerful city of the ancient world after Rome, Alexandria came under Ottoman rule in 1517 and subsequently lost much of its importance to the new port of Rashid (Rosette), 40 miles east, though it would regain some of its former prominence with the construction of the Mahmoudiyah Canal in 1807. In Longhi's engraving, the Ottoman influence may be discerned in the people's clothing as well as in the city's architecture. Within the city are several mosques; the ancient obelisks are shown crowned with crescents. On the river Nile, which flows through the city and underneath the walls, the view depicts numerous trade boats and sailors. Outside the walls lies Pompey's Pillar. The Italian letterpress text pasted under the engraving provides mostly historical and geographical information. - Longhi's panorama seems to draw various aspects from previous works to create its own original representation of the Egyptian city. The perspective is similar to that used in Pierre Belon's 1553 "Observations" and in Braun and Hogenberg's 1575 "Alexandria, Vetustissimum Aegypti Emporium, Amplissima Civitas", published in their famous "Civitates orbis terrarum", but also to that in Mallet's smaller, almost … [Click Below for Full Description]

[SPLENDID CEREMONIES].
Original ink and ink-wash drawings of 5 triumphal arches and 3 catafalques (elaborate funeral biers), plus an additional line drawing of a 4th catafalque on the back of one leaf, all erected at various locations in the city of Siena in Tuscany: in the cathedral, in the piazza before the cathedral, in Palazzo Piccolomini and at the Porta Santuccio. The drawings are richly decorated with sculptures, bas-reliefs, columns, cartouches, vases, candelabras and decorations, including Christian and classical figures and putti. The five triumphal arches were all erected for the occasion of the entry of Alessandro Zondadari (1670-1745), the new archbishop of Sienna on 11 August 1715. He was the fourth and last son of Ansano Zondadari and Agnese di Mario Chigi. She was a niece of Pope Alexander VII and heir of her brother Cardinal Flavio Chigi, one of the most influential and powerful men in Siena. One catafalque was erected for the funeral of Alessandro Zondadari's older brother Marc' Antonio Zondadari (1658-1722), Grand Master of the Sovereign Military and Hospitaller Order of Knights of St. John of Jerusalem and Malta. Flavio Chigi went to great lengths to advance the prestige and power of his Zondadari relatives, paying many thousands of scudi to the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Cosimo III de' Medici (1642-1723) for hereditary titles he could pass on. It is therefore no surprise that the Zondadari arches and catafalques are accompanied by catafalques for the Grand Duke himself and his wife Margarita Luisa d'Orléans (1645-1721), daughter of Gaston, Duke of Orléans and brother of King Loui … [Click Below for Full Description]

Exemplaire bien complet du « feuillet d’errata présent seulement dans quelques exemplaires » (Graesse) « The Tractatus was printed five times in the seventeenth century. The successive editions were labeled T.1 to T.5 by Fritz Bamberger. 4 of these were in quarto, T.3 was an octavo volume. The quarto editions are so similar in appearance that the differences between them went unnoticed until 1865, when Graesse pointed out their typographical distinctions. I here list some features that may be helpful in distinguishing the editions. T.1 page 104 is numbered 304; in T.2 page 42 is numbered as 24 Moreover, in T.4 and T.5 the name of the fictitious publisher is spelt “Kunrath”, whereas in T;1 and T.2 it appears as “Kunraht”. The Tractatus was highly controversial; although formally banned only in 1674, it was considered illegal from its publication and there were attempts to have it repressed from the very start. So the Amsterdam publisher, Jan Rieuwertsz, had to be careful. He did not reveal his identity on the title page and when there was a demand for r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Am Textende eine Holzschnitt-Vignette: Kleiner Engel mit Noten in der Hand. Dahürebr Spruchband: «Musica discurae est». Diese Ausgabe zweisprachig Griechisch - Latein. - Epiktet (ca. 50-138) selbst hat keine Schriften verfasst. Bereits zu seinen Lebzeiten war jedoch sein mündlicher Unterricht sehr einflussreich. Die wichtigste Quelle für Epiktets Lehre stellt eine Sammlung von Lehrgesprächen dar. die sein Schüler Arrian. der vor allem als bedeutender Alexanderhistoriker bekannt ist. aus seinen Notizen zu Epiktets Vorlesungen in der griechischen Umgangssprache der Zeit als Handbuch zusammenstellte. Seine Lehre behandelt vor allem ethische Fragen und stellt die praktische Umsetzung philosophischer Überlegungen in den Vordergrund. Im Zentrum seiner Ethik stehen die innere Freiheit und moralische Autonomie eines jeden Menschen. Epiktet trennt strikt zwischen Dingen und Zuständen. die sich außerhalb der menschlichen Macht befinden und daher als gegeben angenommen werden müssen. und solchen. die das Innerste des Menschen betreffen und daher ausschließlich Gegenstand seines Einflusses sind. Außerdem entwickelt Epiktet ein Konzept der sittlichen Persönlichkeit. die nach seiner Ansicht das Wesen des Menschen darstellt.

BRUNEL, Antoine de.]
London, printed for Henry Herringman, 1670. - 8vo (165 x 105 mm), pp. [viii], 247, [1, blank]; slightly browned; contemporary sheep; extremities rubbed; some worming to front cover; remnants of label on spine; from the library of the earls of Macclesfield.First edition in English. A free and abridged translation of Voyage d'Espagne curieux, historique et politique, first published anonymously in 1665. Setting out from the Netherlands in 1651 in the company of François van Aerssen, Brunel toured France, Germany and Italy before travelling to Spain in March 1655. The party made its way to Madrid via San Sebastián, Vitoria and Burgos, returning to France at the end of June via Zaragoza, Tudela and Pamplona. Aranjuez and Alcalá de Henares are also described. Brunel compiled this account of his travels around 1657 using his own notes and those of Van Aerssen (who drowned on his return to the Netherlands and to whom the work is sometimes attributed).A Journey into Spain, in its portrayal of the country as religiously, politically and socially backward, demonstrates a conscious awareness in Europe of Spain's decline as a world power during the mid-seventeenth century. Brunel's account of his experiences in Spain confirm John Lynch's statement that the 'syndrome of rural poverty, depopulation, financial chaos, and recession of American trade produced Spain's first great crisis in the modern period. The crisis can be dated between 1598 and 1620, and it was a crisis of change, denoting a reversal of the economic trends of the sixteenth century. The worst was still to come.
