Chronik von Nürnberg, Mörder, Huren, Henker, Juden, Monster, fahrendes Volk, Exekutionen etc. -:
Wohl Nürnberg, um 1670. - Folio, circa 36,5 x 23,5 cm. 387 Seiten In Papphülle Annalistisch angelegte Chronik, geschrieben mit Tinte von einer Hand in einer sehr gut lesbaren deutschen Schreibschrift, im letzten Drittel mit zahlreichen Ergänzungen in Bleistift. Besonderes Interesse galt offenbar allem etwas Abseitigen und Kuriosen, auffallend oft werden Huren, Verbrecher, Zigeuner und andere Randgruppen erwähnt. - ?Diese Cronica ist alt, und ist geschrieben worden, von dem Sechzehenden Jahr an, nach Christi Geburt, biß uf die jezigen Zeiten.? D. h. bis zum Jahr 1665. Hier bricht sie unvermittelt ab, eventuell fehlen am Schluss einige Blätter. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt nicht auf den Haupt- und Staatsaktionen. Diese werden eher lieblos, pflichtgemäß hererzählt, der Schreiber hat ein deutliches Faible für die Kriminalgeschichte seiner Stadt, Hunderte von Hinrichtungen werden (teils mit schaurigen Details, einmal gelingt es dem Henker, mit einem Streich den Kopf und die beiden Hände abzuhauen) - fast möchte man sagen genüsslich - ausgebreitet. Daneben gilt sein Augenmerk auch merklich dem Schicksal der Juden. Als Beleg einige Einträge: Anno 1438 Am Charfreytag, bran es unter den Juden, und verbran den Christen viel Pfandt, aber die Juden dörfften Niemand nichts geben. - Anno 1439 Am Tag Simon und Judi, ward St. Lorentzen Chor angefangen, und zwo Stund auf den Tag, leget ein Weyh-Bischofff den ersten Stein, man that ihn ein Groß Ehr an, mit dem weyhen, und mit Meßsingen, und der Stein, war so groß, daß man ihn voneinander klüben must, und der Stein hat in der Mitten ein Creutz . … [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”.

Longhi, Gioseffo.
1670. 945 x 620 mm. Engraved view on 2 sheets joined, letterpress text pasted below (4 columns in Italian, 4 columns in Latin: "Descrittione del gran Cairo [...] Cairi quae olim Babylon") with publisher's imprints. Watermark Panzano. Unrecorded in the standard bibliographies and without counterpart in western libraries, this unique, large-scale view of Cairo reflects the economic and cultural effervescence of the second-largest city in the Empire: under Ottoman rule since 1517 and having expanded south and west from its nucleus around the Citadel, Cairo in the latter half of the 17th century was second only to Constantinople. The Ottoman influence may be discerned in people's clothing in the foreground as well as in the city's architecture. On the river Nile, the map depicts numerous trade boats and sailors. To the left are soldiers battling as part of a tournament; on the right are the Sphinx (wearing a necklace!) and the famous pyramids of Giza: those of Khufu, Khafre, and Menkaure, as well as the smaller pyramids. The centre of the city shows numerous mosques and gardens. The letterpress text pasted under the engraving provides mostly historical and geographical information (in Italian and Latin). - Longhi's panorama seems to draw various aspects from previous works to create its own original representation of the Egyptian city. Indeed, it bears some resemblance to Braun and Hogenberg's 1572 "Cairos, quae olim Babylon, Aegypti maxima urbs", published in their famous "Civitates orbis terrarum". There are also similarities with Donato Bertelli's "La gran città del Cairo" ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

TODESCHI PIETRO.
1670 c.. Incisione in rame, 405x513. Rarissima carta non proveniente da atlante, che deriva direttamente dalla raffigurazione dell'impero turco eseguita da Blaeu, il cui nome è anche riportato entro un cartiglio a destra. Todeschi fu editore bolognese specializzato nella ristampa di carte olandesi; la sua produzione, proprio per il mercato limitato e una conseguente limitata produzione, risultano piuttosto rare. Buon esemplare marginoso, con qualche restauro e margine inferiore molto breve successivamente ampliato con carta antica.

Pfeiffer, August.
1670. 4to. (32) pp. With many woodcut type specimens. Disbound. Only edition; one of several variant issues. - A congratulatory publication by the prolific Saxon oriental scholar August Pfeiffer (1640-98) who was said to know seventy languages. The present rare work is dedicated to the Duke of Saxony Johann Georg II on the occasion of his 15th anniversary as Elector. It contains 15 celebratory poems in the world's principal languages German, Latin, Greek, Hebrew (with Latin literal translation), Chaldaic (with Latin transliteration and literal translation), in the Jerusalem dialect, in Syriac (with Latin literal translation), Samaritan, Arabic, Ethiopian, Farsi, Ottoman Turkish, Coptic, Armenian, and Chinese (all with Latin transliteration and literal translation). The end is brought up by a "fusa vacui" (or stopgap), namely Psalm 103 in no less than 35 different languages (Hebrew, Chaldaic, Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopian, Samaritan, Farsi, Ottoman Turkish, Armenian, Coptic, Iberian, Greej, Latin, Italian, Sardinian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Saxon, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, English, Scots, Irish Gaelic, Hungarian, Polish, Czech, Serbo-Croatian, Chinese, Nahuatl, Inuit, and Quechua. - Browned throughout due to paper; binding loosened; old ownership to t. p. and page numbers throughout, but trimmed rather closely. This copy was bound from a defective set of sheets: several leaves (3 and 4 in each gathering) show a hole through the middle of the page, resulting in loss of text to several poems (mainly affecting Chaldaic, Arabic, Turkish, and Coptic).

Grimmelshausen, Hans Jacob Christoph v.
Nürnberg, Wolf Eberhard Felßecker, 1670. Erste Ausgabe der "antimachiavellistischen Staatsphilosophie auf der Basis biblischer Exempel" (Dünnhaupt), abgefasst in 6 "Discursen", wovon der letztere sich speziell an Leserinnen richtet. Grimmelshausen unterzieht vier biblische Gestalten einer religiös-theologisch fundierten Kritik. Jonathan, Saul, Joab und David werden, dem Grundsatz der "Zweiköpfigkeit", dem "Weiß und Schwarz" im 'Satyrischen Pilgram' folgend, als staatsmännisch handelnde Personen einander gegenübergestellt. Grimmelshausen preist, dem Zeitgeist folgend, das Gottvertrauen Davids als dauerndes Vorbild jeder Politik, gegenüber der sich die den "gottlosen Machiavellistischen Staatsregeln" folgende Handlungsweise Sauls als unwirksam erweist. "Das Werk wird im wesentlichen von einer Paraphrase der 1. Sam. 8-31 und 2. Sam. 3-24 berichteten Geschehnisse zusammen mit Zitaten aus Garzonis 'Piazza Universale' konstituiert . Die Anregung zur Abfassung der Schrift könnte die deutsche Übrsetzung von Malvezzis 'Davide perseguitato' (1638 und 1643) gegeben haben" (Weydt, 'Grimmelshausen', 1971, S. 104). Der 'Ratio Status' ist das zweite Werk Grimmelshausens, das offen unter dessen Namen veröffentlicht wurde. "The frontispice is undoubtedly designed by Grimmelshausen himself. This is the only Simplician work to which the author signed his real name" (Faber du Faur). Um so erstaunlicher ist, dass das Frontispiz weder in Scholtes Abhandlung 'Grimmelshausen und die Illustrationen seiner Werke' (1912) noch in seinem im selben Jahr erschienenen Werk 'Probleme der Grimmeslhausenfors … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roberts, A.
1670. Small 8vo. (8), 252 [but 254], (2) pp. (includes final leaf of ads). Contemporary calf, rebacked. First edition of this extraordinary account of an Englishman's capture by Barbary pirates and subsequent adventures as a slave in Algeria. The narrative is framed as an authentic journal of a deceased traveller, prepared for the press by a friend of the departed. Through this mechanism the reader is taken into a proto-novelistic fantasy, albeit one that must have been informed by genuine experience of Eastern travel. As a slave under numerous masters the author tricks his way variously into employment as the cook to the King of Algiers, is then demoted to Keeper of the King's Bath and secretly fathers a daughter with one of the King's wives. After an unsuccessful stint as a gardener's assistant he journeys in the service of an officer, collecting tribute money with the Algerian army and offers his services as an advisor to the Ottoman governor of Tlemcen. He recounts observations on the various peoples encountered and their customs and peculiarities, marvelling at flying serpents, lions and ostriches and skirmishing with an army of Arabs. Against a backdrop of mosques, minarets and palaces, the narrative is peppered with anecdotes of meetings with Barbary pirates, European renegados, and dalliances with alluring women of the Maghreb. - The author takes particular relish in recounting the details of his sexual adventures: "the women in this country keep much at home, but their minds and affections are more wandering abroad, because they are so recluse; whereas if they had … [Click Below for Full Description]
