LISBOA, Con las licençias necessárias. A despesa de ANTONIO CRAESBEECK DE MELO, Impressor de la Casa Real. Anno M. DC. LXXVI. [1676]. 2 volumes. De 20x15 cm. com [xvi]-312-[i]-[x]- 362 pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com ferros a ouro na lombada. Texto a duas colunas. Palau, 1990, vol. III, 425 e 426: ?Se dice que la primera edición se hizo en Valladolid, por Nicolás Tierry, 1529, fol. pero no conocemos ejemplares.? Frei António de Guevara (1480-1545) foi um dos escritores mais populares do Renascimento, sendo publicado mais de 600 vezes em toda a Europa. Procedia de uma família nobre das Astúrias e graças aos bons ofícios do seu tio entrou na Corte onde foi um escudeiro da rainha Isabel, a Católica. Ele era o protector de Soria, em 1518, e o Definidor da Província em 1520 esteve com o Imperador Carlos I durante a Guerra das Comunidades de Castilla, recompenso-o nomeando-o Pregador Real em 1521. Guevara acompanhou o seu amo na viagem a Inglaterra em Junho de 1522 - o que influencia nas suas obras - e em Maio de 1523 participou do capítulo geral da sua ordem em Burgos. Durante os anos seguintes, percorreu várias cidades de Castela com o Imperador participou na guerra contra os mouros e foi ferido em 1526. No início de 1527, Carlos V nomeou-o seu historiador oficial e mudou-se para o Valladolid em Junho para participar na reunião dos 24 de teólogos que se decidiram sobre as obras de Erasmo de Rotterdam. É muito possível que ele escrevesse os discursos importantes do Imperador pois acompanhou-o na canpanha da Tunísia, entre 1535 e 1536, e neste ultimo ano esteve em Roma na coroação do Imperador. Proferiu a oração fúnebre da Imperatriz (Toledo, 1538) e em 1537 foi proclamado bispo de Mondoñedo. Guevara morreu em sua diocese e foi sepultado na catedral. Fray Antonio de Guevara 1480 1545), Spanish writer and ecclesiastic, one of the most popular Renaissance writers (his works were published more than 600 times throughout Europe). He proceeded from a noble family of Asturias. Thanks to the good connections of his uncle he could raise into the Royal Court as a squire of Queen Isabella the Catholic. He was the keeper of Soria in 1518, and the Definidor of the province in 1520. He was with Emperor Charles I during the War of the Communities of Castilla, who rewarded him by naming him Royal Preacher in 1521. He accompanied his master on his trip to England in June 1522 (that trip later influenced his works) and in May 1523 attended the general chapter of his order in Burgos. During the years following toured various cities of Castile with the Emperor, participated in the war against the Moors and was wounded in 1526. At the beginning of 1527 Charles V appointed him his official historian and he moved to Valladolid on June to participate in the meeting of 24 theologians who would decid about the works of Erasmus of Rotterdam. It is very possible that he wrote the important speeches of the Emperor and accompanied him in the campaign of Tunisia - between 1535 and 1536 - and during this year he was in Rome in the coronación the Emperor. He acted as preacher at the funeral of Empress (Toledo, 1538) and in 1537 he was proclaimed Bishop of Mondoñedo. He died in his diocese and was buried in the cathedral.

In 12 de [1 titre gravé]-234-[3, 1b.]pp., reliure en plein maroquin rouge cerise de l'époque, dos lisse orné de caissons, fleurons, fers en écoinçon et points dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin vert pistache encadrée d'un filet doré, titre doré, deux petits trous de vers dans la partie inférieure de la charnière supérieure, filet doré sur les coupes, petits bâtonnets dorés en biais sur les coiffes, triple filet d'encadrement doré sur les plats avec poinçon doré sur chaque intersection angulaire des filets et fleurons dorés dans chaque angle des plats, armoiries dorées au centre de chaque plat de Madame Adélaïde, fille de Louis XV, ex-libris héraldique sur la seconde page de garde de Kerchove d'Ousselghem, petite déchirure marginale restaurée à la page 17-18, petit trou dans le texte des pages 65-66 sans gravité pour la lecture et la compréhension du texte, de nombreuses notes dans les marges, intérieur frais, tranches dorées, bon et bel exemplaire. Horace naquit en 65 avant J. C. à Venosa, aux frontières de l'Apulie et de la Lucanie, dans le sud de l'actuelle Italie, et décéda en 8 avant J. C à Tibur. Il reçu une éducation soignée et étudia le grec et la philosophie à Rome et Athènes. Suite à l'assassinat de Jules César en 44 avant Jésus Christ, il commanda une legion dans l'armée des > de Brutus. Après la bataille de Philippes le 22 octobre 42 avant J. C. et la défaite de Brutus (qui se suicida), face à octave et Marc Antoine, Horace, vaincu et amnistié retourna en Italie. Réduit à la pauvreté, il se mit à la poésie. En 17 avant Jésus Christ, il composa le ''Chant séculaire''. En 35 et 29 avant J. C. il publia les ''Satires'', recueils en hexamètres dactyliques de dix et huit pièces. Les épodes, publiées en 29 avant J. C., sont écrites en distiques, formées de 625 vers, dont 4 probablement apocryphes. Les odes furent publiées entre 23 et 7 avant Jésus Christ, en 4 livres de 3 038 vers, dont 6 apocryphes. Enfin les ''Epîtres'' furent publiées en 19/18 avant Jésus Christ, composés de 1 006 vers dont 7 probablement apocryphes, 270 et 206 vers. S'y ajoute ''l'Epitre aux pisons'', plus connu sous le nom ''d'Art poétique'' en 476 vers. Ce sont des lettres fictives dans lesquelles Horace y a déposé son testament spirituel et la quintessence de sa sagesse. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Paris Imprimerie Royale 1676 - First Edition of this Illustrated Edition OVID. [BENSERADE, Isaac de, translator]. Metamorphoses d’Ovide.

Quarto (10 7/8 x 8 inches; 277 x 200 mm). [14], 463, [1, blank], [8, table] pp. With engraved frontispiece title-page by Sébastian Le Clerc after Charles Le Brun. Engraved royal arms on the title-page, two cherub vignettes and 226 engraved illustrations by Le Clerc, Chauveau and Le Pautre. These illustrations are considered to be some of the finest work of Chauveau and Le Clerc. Contemporary mottled calf. Boards ruled in gilt. Spine with black morocco spine label, lettered in gilt. Spine stamped in gilt. Gilt dentelles and board edges. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Outer hinges starting and a bit rubbed, but still strong. Board edges a bit bumped and rubbed.

Issac de Benserade was an important poet in the court of Louis XIV and was the librettist for the composer Lully. His translation of Métamorphoses d'Ovid in the form of a rondeaux was considered a failure and negatively affected his reputation. "Benserade wrote rondeaus upon Ovid some of which are reckoned tolerable but upon the whole the attempt was too absurd for serious approbation and his Ovid without occasioning any controversy dropt into oblivion almost as soon as it was published, although it appeared in a highly ornamented 4to printed at Paris 1676 with engravings to the expence [sic] of which the king contributed 10,000 livres."

And the Illegality, Many Mischiefs and Inconveniences Which May Arrive to the People of England, By the Proposals Tendred to His Majesty, And the High Court of Parliament, For the Abolishing of That Old and Better Way, And Method of Justice, And the Establishing of a New, By Peremptory Summons and Citations in Actions of Debt. London: Printed for C. Wilkinson, 1676. [viii], 390 pp. Quarto (7" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt spine with raised bands and recent period-style lettering piece. Moderate rubbing to extremities, light scuffing to boards, bookplate residue and early owner initials to front pastedown, front endleaf re-hinged, later owner bookplate (of Dom. Joseph Ayloffe) to verso of title page. Moderate toning to text, occasional light foxing, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, light soiling to title page. Early corrections to text in a few places, interior otherwise clean. * First edition, one of two issues, the other dated 1677. Philipps, a Royalist lawyer and scholar of legal records, wrote several pamphlets and books proposing legal reforms. Most were well-circulated and taken seriously across the political spectrum, as can be seen by the considerable number of replies they generated. The present title proposes several procedural reforms, most notably the abolition of arrest for debt on mesne process. Both imprints are scarce. Including both, OCLC locates 2 copies in North American law libraries (LA County, Yale). Holdsworth, A History of English Law VI:610. English Short-Title Catalogue R3717.

This lovely plan of Paris described streets, buildings, gardens, parks, museums, cemeteries and notes the address of 67 prominent residents. The cartouche dedicates the map to Lord Simon Arnauld, the Marquis de Pomponne, an influential diplomat. An inset in the lower left shows the environs around Paris. Lutetia is floating in a cloud in the upper right representing the cities ancient roots. She holds up the people of Paris and the arms of the King. There is a two inch tear with expert repairs in the upper right and abrasions but overall still very good. Albert Jouvin de Rochefort, (1640-1710) was a French cartographer who did not produce many maps. Nicolas de Fer (1646-1720) was a prolific cartographer, engraver and publisher who took over the family map business from his mother when she retired. The business flourished and he gained a great reputation in his lifetime and was appointed 'Geographer to the King' in 1690. There is one other copy of this map in the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF). Scarce.

        The Kingdome of Scotland

      London: Basset & Chiswell, 1676. Copper engraving, 38.5 x 51.5 cms, recent hand-colour, light crease in the lower right hand corner, but generally a very good example; English text on verso. Cartographically Speed follows Mercator, but his is one of the most distinctive and decorative early maps of Scotland. The portraits in the borders originally represented James VI and I and his family, including a young Prince Charles. The royal family was burnished from the copper plate during the Interregnum and replaced with the ‘commoners’ seen here: a ‘Scotch’ man and woman, and a ‘Highland’ man and woman (notable as early depictions of tartan).

        Italia newly augmented by J: Speede

      London: Bassett & Chiswell, 1676. Copper engraving, a couple of short marginal nicks and tears, left-hand margin trimmed close the platemark by the binder and subsequently renewed, English text on verso. An attractive carte-á-figures map of Italy with eight vignettes of regional costumes down the sides, views of Rome, Genoa, Verona, Naples, Venice and Florence along the top. John Speed unquestionably remains the most significant English map-maker of the seventeenth-century. Speed's world atlas, his 'Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World', is the first world atlas by an Englishman, originally published in 1627. The atlas was completed towards the end of Speed's life (most of the maps were engraved in the mid 1620s) when Speed (1552-1629) was complaining of increasing blindness ("want of sight liberty and conference" in a letter of April 1626), so the precise extent of his involvement with his publisher George Humble's project is debatable, although the imprints explicitly credit Speed. As with Speed's English county atlas the plates were engraved by Hondius in Amsterdam, where the appropriate technical expertise was concentrated, and much of the cartography follows available Dutch models. Also Hondius had spent time in London and established strong ties with London publishers. Carte-á-figures maps are typically Dutch, popularised by Hondius. The technique was often reserved for maps of the continents (although Speed and Humble chose to present each country in that form). The copper plates passed through several hands until they were acquired by Bassett & Chiswell, who published their edition of both Theatre and Prospects in 1676.
