Ferrer de Valdecebro, A.
. Madrid, M. Alegre, 1670. 4to, 20 ll, 205 numbered leaves (a few inconsistent), 15 ll of tabla general (general index), and one engraved portrait of San Vicente Ferrer and 18 engravings in the text, all of the birds discussed. Limp vellum with beautifully contemporary calligraphed title on the spine. New flyleaves.* Rare first illustrated edition. An interesting mixture of fact and fancy that throws much light on popular ideas regarding the ornithology of Spain in the 17th century, in which (with some information of value) one finds the usual pious adjuncts to be expected from this author. Although Wood only quotes 17 plates, we think it should have 18 as our copy has. It deals with the Aguila (eagle), Buytre (buzzard), Ciguena (stork), Garza or Garca (heron), Cisne (swan), Fenix, Pelicano (but the illustration suggests that the writer did not know this bird), Halcon (falcon), Gavilan (harrier), Buho (owl), Grulla (crane), Papagayo (parrot), Ansaron (goose), Avestruz (ostrich), Pavo Real (peacock), Cuervo (crow), Paloma (pigeon), and the Gallo (chicken). Some marginal foxing and one right corner of the text (p. 143) with some slight loss of paper, but without touching the text itself. New flyleaves and a library stamp on the title-page. Palau 90597 mentions a first, unillustrated edition from 1668. However, we find no references to that edition elsewhere. In any case, this is the first illustated edition, with an engraved portrait of the author. The Licencia de la Orden is dated 30 de Setiembre 1669, the Aprobation Octubre 23 de 1669. Several later editions appeared. Wood, … [Click Below for Full Description]

His most important work is the Saturnalia, an account of a long dicussion held during a symposium on the occasion of the Saturnalia. The subjects discussed are grammar, philology, mythology, history. Macrobius also produced a commentary on the Somnium Scipionis of Cicero. The work of this late antique writer is important because he rescued opinions and passages from works that have been lost. The Dutch classical scholar Johannes Isaac Pontanus, 1571-1639, was born at sea (hence his name), when his parents were on their way to Denmark. There he was for some time a helper of Tycho Brahe (NNBW I,1417). In 1606 he became professor of Mathematics at the University of Harderwijk.

KIRCHER, Athanasius
Amsterdam: Janssonius à Waesberge & Weyerstraet, 1670. Large quarto frontispiece, portrait plate, two folding maps and 22 plates (complete for this edition), numerous other illustrations integral to the text; some intermittent foxing and browning, very good in recent vellum with leather ties, spine lettered in period style. "Shouldn't be left to the worms" First French edition of an influential encyclopaedia of the Chinese empire, much expanded from the earlier Latin edition of 1667 to include a Chinese-French dictionary - 'the first Chinese vocabulary ever printed in the West' (Merrill). The book was compiled by Jesuit polymath Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680), a prolific author who published over 40 works on a wide variety of topics. As a young man Kircher aspired to preach in China; although this ambition was never realised he enjoyed much contact with Jesuits who had returned from the East. In his preface Kircher writes 'Father Martin Martini of Trent, the illustrious author of the Chinese Atlas and my former pupil, communicated to me many things, his keen insight having been well trained for this by his mathematical studies. He left out nothing of the curiosities or customs of those tribes.' In addition to Martini, Kircher conversed at depth with other missionaries, including Michal Boym, Philip Marino, Johann Grüber and Henry Roth. He openly acknowledges this book is the fruit of their work: 'While I am writing this, they are here with me, and continually tell me things… While the fathers were working for the salvation of souls, they lacke … [Click Below for Full Description]

SABATINI, Francesco.
Bologna: Sabatini, 1670, 455 x 555mm Bottom right corner rebuilt with manuscript reinstatement. Otherwise a very fine example. A very rare and attractive carte-à-figures map of Asia, engraved by Pietro Todeschi, the side panels with native costume figures and miniature vignette views of major towns and cities, amongst which are shown Goa, Macao and Calcutta. Of interest in the map is the North-Eastern truncation of China/Siberia, presumably so due to a belief in a North-West passage through the Straits of Anian. This map was published by Francesco Sabatini, one of the many fringe figures in Italian map-making and publishing in the late seventeenth century. Unfortunately, even accurate dates for his life and death elude us, while his work life can be established only by the rough dating of his maps dependent on the dedications on those maps bearing them, but he was apparently active as a printer and publisher (and possibly engraver) in the 1670s, probably in Bologna. This a contemporary piracy of Dutch carte-à-figures maps, popularised in the first part of the seventeenth century, although it seems likely that the map was plagiarised from intermediate Italian copies, perhaps by Stefano Scolari, an engraver and publisher (or possibly two different men) active from the 1640s to 1660s.

SABATINI, Francesco.
Bologna, Francesco Sabatini, c.1670, 455 x 560mm. Top margin restored with small manuscript reinstatement above Algier's view, A very fine dark impression. A very rare and fine carte-à-figures map of Africa engraved by Pietro Todeschi, with vignette scenes of regional types to the left and right and cities along the top and bottom borders. This map is signed by Sabatini, in the dedication to a Bolognese nobleman, Marchese Andrea Paleotti, and his wife Christine Dudley, Duchess of Northumberland, grand-daughter of Sir Robert Dudley, the famous Elizabethan mariner and chart-maker, who was exiled to Florence in the early seventeenth century. Christine was born in 1649, and married Paleotti in 1663. A legendary beauty, she had a scandalous love-life, partly encouraged by her husband, who died in 1689. Published by Sabatini, one of the many fringe figures in Italian map-making and publishing in the late seventeenth century.

HOBBES, THOMAS. - [THE LATIN LEVIATHAN]
Amsterdam, Bleau, 1670. 4to. Contemporary full vellum. A bit of minor browning. A nice, clean, and solid copy. (4), 365, (3 - Indices) + 10 (Index) + 1 (Scripturae Scrae + Eerratum) pp.. Scarce first separate Latin edition of Hobbes' groundbreaking main work, the work from which the "social contract" theory originates. The Latin edition of Hobbes' main work is of great importance to the study of the Leviathan and to the understanding of the development of Hobbes' thought. Not only does the Leviathan become accessible to readers all over Europe when appearing in the Latin version, "[a]another fact of importance is that Latin was natural to Hobbes and that the Latin version of "Leviathan" may represent his views more closely than the English." (Macdonald&Hargreaves p. XI).All later editions of the Latin version of "Leviathan" are greatly corrected and none of them appear in the same version as the present one (which is identical to that which appeared in the Opera), which provides us with the text in the form that comes closest to what Hobbes himself desired his masterpiece to be. "[...] Given these results, we may conclude that LL [i.e. the Latin Leviathan] should be counted an important source for the text of the English "Leviathan". LL is definitely more than a translation that teaches us little or nothing about the text translated. On the contrary, it is based on an independent manuscript copy of "Leviathan", and more specifically on a copy Hobbes had kept with him all the time and had apparently continued to annotate and correct. The variants of LL must therefore be trea … [Click Below for Full Description]

PALLAVICINO SFORZA PIETRO.
Ex Officina Plantiniana Balthasaris Moreti, 1670. Tre volumi di cm. 25, pp. xx, 814 (46); (4) 820 (52); (4) 898 (46). Bell'antiporta figurata, marchi tipografici ai tre frontespizi ed alcuni bei fregi tipografici bel testo. Bella e solida leg. coeva in piena pelle, dorsi a piccoli nervi con ricchi fregi e titoli in oro. Esemplare fresco e marginoso, in eccellente stato di conservazione, con solo qualche abile restauro alle cuffie superiori. Si tratta della rara prima edizione latina della Storia del Concilio di Trento scritta dal cardinale Sforza Pallavicino. L'originale (in volgare) apparve a Roma nel 1656 e si propose in una distinta posizione anti-sarpiana dando vita ad un vero e proprio dualismo dottrinale con la Storia del Sarpi. Per garantirne una circolazione europea Giovanni Battista Giattino eseguì la presente traduzione in latino che fu ristampata, sempre ad Anversa (in un volume), nel 1673. Fu più volte riproposto anche nel corso del diciottesimo secolo. Non comune. Cfr. Brunet (IV, 326):. "Traduction recherchée...".
