RICHA Giuseppe.
Nella Stamperia di Pietro Gaetano Viviani in Via de' Servi, all'Insegna di GianoPrima edizione. Opera completa in dieci volumi. Cm.27x19,5. Pg.3804 complessive. Legature coeve in cartoncino semirigido, con titoli manoscritti ai dorso. Esemplari in barbe. Opera adorna da 40 tavole incise fuori testo, principalmente in grande formato, raffiguranti vedute e scorci della città e particolari artistici. Le tavole sono incise da Vincenzo Tarchi, J, Verkruysse, A.L. Galassi, Andrea Scacciati, etc. Figure calcografiche nel testo, capilettera e cartigli ornamentali incisi. All'antiporta del primo volume ritratto dell'Autore inciso in ovale da Francesco Allegrini su bozzetto di Giuseppe Zocchi. L'Opera tratta, con dovizia di particolari, degli edifici religiosi fiorentini, suddivisi nei quattro principali quartieri: Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella, San Giovanni e Santo Spirito. Il decimo volume uscì postumo. Il padre Giuseppe Richa (Torino, 1693 ?" Firenze, 1761) studiò nel Collegio Cicognini a Prato sotto i padri gesuiti, ordine cui si ascrisse nel 1747. Trasferitosi a Firenze tenne orazioni nella chiesa di San Giovannino della Congregazione di Santa Maria Maddalena penitente. La presente, monumentale, è frutto di approfondite ricerche. "Si tratta una ricostruzione storica e di una puntuale descrizione dello stato degli edifici sacri e dei loro possedimenti, anche artistici, all'epoca, estremamente preziosa per risalire alle origini di tanto patrimonio fiorentino alla vigilia delle dispersioni che seguirono le soppressioni monastiche. In gran parte si basò sulla lettura dell'opera i … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUEVARRE Andres - Piazza Carlo Bartolomeo (?)
Gio. Giacomo Komarek Boemo, Roma, 1693. In-8, pp. (8) 138, (2). Graziosa antiporta calcografica raffigurante un cardinale che esercita la Carità in San Giovanni in Laterano. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena con titolo inciso in oro su tassello al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione di quest'opera economica, convenzionalmente attribuita a Carlo Bartolomeo Piazza sull'ipotesi avanzata a suo tempo dal Melzi (II, p.189). Questa vecchia attribuzione è stata però recentemente messa in discussione da M. Fattica (La reclusione dei poveri a Roma, durante il pontificato di Innocenzo XII (1672-1700), in "Ricerche per la Storia Religiosa di Roma", Roma 1979, p. 116) e da Fiorani (Religione e povertà. Il dibattito sul pauperismo a Roma tra Cinque e Seicento, ibidem, p. 55); il primo ritenendo il testo derivato da "La Mendicité abolie", il secondo stabilendo esserne diretto autore lo stesso Andres Guevarre.

Buendía, José
Madrid: Antonio Roman 4to. [16] ff., 666 pp., [1] f. (without the portrait).. 1693 Jesuit priest Francisco del Castillo (1615?-73) was born in Lima and educated in the Jesuit Colegio Real de San Martín. He entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on the last day of 1631 and took his final vows in early 1650. Even before that, he had begun evangelic work among the black population and notably, as did the Testerian method used in Mexico among the Indian population, he => used drawings in support of his oral delivery. Castillo studied the Chiriguano language (of the Guarani family) in expectation of being a missionary among them, but was sent to Chile as a personal chaplain to the nephew of the Viceroy instead; and upon returning to Lima a few years later he learned that the mission to the Chiriguanos had been abandoned. Then, redoubling his work among the blacks, he learned "Angolan" (i.e., probably Bantu) in order to serve his flock, and he is said to have composed doctrinal works in that language which he left in manuscript. His work among the blacks was especially directed to those ("los desamparados") who had been abandoned, often to helpless homelessness, by their owners. Among other benefactions and with the support of the viceroy, the Conde de Lemos, he constructed a church for them, La Iglesia de los Desamparados; the biography devotes pp. 270 to 278 to describing it and pp. 294 to 312 to describing its statuary. => These pages (and the sheer number of them!) suggest the richness that serious sponsors could set forth even for the humblest in late-17th-century Peru. => … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guillaume Louis Colomyez, Toulouse 1693, In 8 (10x17,8cm), (18) 449pp., relié. - Rare first edition published just days before the History of Ximenez Flechier whose comparison provoked a controversy until the nineteenth century. While the book Fléchier tends to illustrate the holiness of Cardinal, one of Marsolier more critical, addresses "libertines, that party philosophers began to look up." Full contemporary calf. Back with five nerves ornate coffered and gilded finials. Part of title in red morocco. Small tear without loss of the lower cap, scuffs on covers, top corners and recessed bottom corners bumped. About this book, D'Alembert officially proclaim the superiority of the book Marsolier, while specifying that Fléchier "would have removed its competitor, if instead of considering Ximenes as a saint and politics, he had made a hypocrite sublime by skillfully used his views and beliefs of peoples handling with address, to cement his power, weapons that religion made him so powerful in the hands of the minister. "(quoted by Stephen D'Alembert Delacroix in his History of Fléchier) . Bookplate manuscript of the time the back of the page.

Chez Anisson & Posuel, Lyon 1693 - 2 voll. in 24, pp. (8) + 369 + (1b); 422. Annotazione manoscritta ai controp. ant. Carte brunite. Mancanze al dorso del I volume e al piatto anter. del II. Legatura in p. pl. coeva. Seconda edizione (I ed. 1691) del resoconto del viaggio in Spagna pubblicato anonimo ma scritto da madame D'Aulnoy, opera che conobbe numerose ristampe e traduzioni successive. Lo stile dell'A., spiritoso e salace, da' conto degli usi e costumi degli Spagnoli, del loro modo di vivere, delle leggi, del commercio, del lato devozionale e religioso del popolo intervallato con racconti di avventure e aneddoti di vario tipo. Ad esempio descrive che durante la cerimonia ufficialeÂper la pace di Nimega si distrasse e comincio' a leggere una copia del Don Chisciotte accidentalmente trovato. L'opera piacque molto ma fu presto anche criticata. L'A. - si disse - dall'inizio alla fine aveva raccontato una catena di episodi che avevano il solo scopo di schernire il popolo spagnolo e farlo apparire ridicolo cosi' come inattendibili erano i racconti delle sue vicissitudini. Foulche'-Delbosc disse che la prima parte del libro era la copia di altre opere di viaggio e arrivo' a sostenere che l'A. non era neppure maiÂstata in Spagna ma si era limitata a leggere le lettere che la madre, Madame de Gudannes, le aveva inviato da Madrid doveÂaveva vissuto. Marie-Catherine, baronessa d'Aulnoy (1650-105), scrittrice francese, fu costretta a sposarsi con François de La Motte, piu' vecchio di lei di quarantasei anni, col quale ebbe cinque figli.

FOIGNY, Gabriel de
London: for John Dunton, 1693. Duodecimo, shaving to head of final pages; a very good copy in contemporary plain calf, later lettering on the spine; slight wear to head and tail of spine but in very good condition. An antipodean hermaphrodite utopia. The first English language use of the words 'Australia' and 'Australians' in print.This rare English translation of 1693 contains the first anglicized usage of the words 'Australia' and 'Australian'. Ordinarily Matthew Flinders is credited as the first published author of the name 'Australia', as it appears in his Voyage to Terra Australis. However, Foigny's fantastic story predates this by more than a century.A curious book by any standards, A New Discovery of Terra Incognita Australis relates the adventures of hermaphrodite narrator Jacques Sadeur, born at sea and shipwrecked several times before reaching the southern continent. Here he finds an idealised society of large bodied hermaphrodites who live in harmony with one another. The author, Gabriel de Foigny, was a rebellious and libertine character 'constantly at loggerheads with the church authorities on account of his deplorable lifestyle and unacceptable behaviour' (Howgego). In the preamble to this book, Foigny leans on the reputation of Marco Polo, Magellan and de Quiros to bolster the factuality of the amazing southern continent, and even claims to have received written testimony from Sadeur himself to add credibility to the story. Indeed, a contemporary English newspaper account presents this publication as a true and factual voyage account.First published in Switze … [Click Below for Full Description]

Madrid, 1693. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Good Condition. Contemporary vellum worn, discolored and damaged at the edges. Front hinge cracked and text block coming away from binding. Endpapers ragged, dampstain to fore-edge throughout volume not affecting any text, a few pages opened poorly with tears in the margin. Clean otherwise and in the first, unexpurgated state with leaves 324, 325, and 341 present. Marca de fuego on top edge, a few neat manicules in the margins. Not printer listed and no place - Madrid ca. 1693 or 94. Palau I 145, Bibliotheca Mejicana 141 ("Extremely rare and interesting work containing a vast amount of information respecting the early missions in America"). 341 leaves. A scarce work on the missions in New Spain, unpopular and suppressed in Mexico. In addition to discussion of the missions in the various sections of Mexico (Yucatan, Zacatecas, Michoacan, Jalisco, etc.) Guatamala, Nicaragua, New Mexico, Florida and California are also mentioned. Ayeta describes how New Mexico's once thriving missions had been nearly abandoned - he doesn't mention it by name, but this was in the wake of the 1680 Pueblo revolt where the Pueblo people threw off the Spanish, killing 400 of them and driving some 2000 from New Mexico. It also suggests when this was written, as the Spanish reclaimed New Mexico in a bloodless re-conquest in late 1692. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Americana; Religion & Theology. Inventory No: 045459.

ALIGHIERI Dante.
Opera completa in tre volumi, contenenti le tre cantiche della "Commedia". Cm.20x13,3. Pg.(20), 261, (3 non numerate con errata); 273, (4 non numerate); 294, (5 non numerate). Legature coeve in piena pergamena rigida, con unghie, con titoli manoscritti ai dorsi. Minima mancanza al piatto anteriore del terzo volume. Tagli spruzzati. Alcuni cartigli e capilettera incisi. Fregio silografico al frontespizio del primo volume. Capolettera xilografico animato alla dedicatoria. Fresco esemplare, salvo fisiologiche lievi bruniture alle carte. Assai rara prima edizione, stampata a Lucca, della "Commedia" dantesca annotata dal Padre gesuita Pompeo Venturi (Siena, 1693 - 1752). L'opera venne stampata a spese della Compagnia del Gesù, curata da Giovan Battista Placidi, anch'egli senese e gesuita. E' unanimemente considerata come il primo commento moderno alla "Commedia", godendo di vasta fama e numerose ristampe sino alla metà dell'Ottocento. Su di essa spesero positive parole sia Vico (?difficil nesso di chiarezza e brevità?) che Croce.

Né à Orléans en 1644, Aignan avait été capucin dans sa jeunesse et de plus il avait travaillé au Louvre vers 1678 en qualité de chimiste. Devenu médecin du Roi et Docteur de la Faculté de Padoue, il avait élaboré des idées médicales opérant une curieuse synthèse entre la théologie, la médecine classique et la chimie. Dans cet ouvrage il désigne Galien et Hippocrate comme les véritables inventeurs de la médecine chimique, et il s'étend notamment sur la nature chimique de la digestion. Bon exemplaire.

London: for James Moxon, 1693. later stiff wrappers, half brown morocco slipcase and chemise. small 4to. later stiff wrappers, half brown morocco slipcase and chemise. 52 pages. First separate appearance. (Bigmore & Wyman, Vol. II, p. 62; Burke no.810; Wing M3020). This edition of the work gives every appearance of having been made from leftover sheets. The text appears to be from the same setting of type as the first edition of 1676. The plates are printed on thin paper, with the exception of Plate I, which looks like new work for this edition. They correspond exactly with the like-numbered plates from the section on letter-cutting in Moxon's Mechanick Exercises of 1683. . ." (Burke catalogue). This last work, subtitled The Doctrine of Handyworks, was the first published manual describing printer's tools and the various processes of printing. In this present Regulae Trium Ordinum, as in the 1676 original, Moxon models his types on Elzevir's, but modifies them with his mathematician's sense of rigid geometrical proportion (Bigmore & Wyman). Lacking title and dedication leaves and one of the seven plates. Title, dedication to Christopher Wrenn, and plate thirteen supplied in photo facsimile. From the Library of Jackson Burke.

First Edition. The Important First German Edition of Bekker's Masterful Refutation of Witchcraft - Published While Witches Were Still Being Burned in Massachusetts The important German edition which did much to spread the message of this work (published in the same year in Dutch). De betoverde Weereld is one of the most important text of what Jonathan Israel recently termed the 'Radical' Enlightenment. It caused a furor when it was first published in Holland and the firestorm quickly spread to Germany, France and England - where the book was translated and published within three years of its original appearance in Dutch. Bekker was a Reformed pastor who had caught the infectious disease of 'philosophizing' after the manner of Descartes and Spinoza - which, more than anything else, meant the freedom to reconsider received doctrine in the light of reason. Bekker previously had encountered difficulties with two of this earlier published works - an unconventional adult catechism [1670] and a book confounding the prevailing superstitions about comets [1683] - (there had been three spectacular sightings between 1680 and 1682).But nothing Bekker had previously written prepared the local clergy - or northern Europe - for the book that he published in 1691.

Thomasius, Christian.
Halle, Christoph Salfeld, 1693.. - Vorgebunden: Derselbe. Historia Sapientiae et Stultitiae. 3 Bände in 1. 8, 213; 158 S.; 2 Bl., 275 S. Ebenda 1693.. Zwei äußerst seltene komplette Monatsschriften, die eine mit deutschem, die andere mit lateinischem Text, die - entgegen Beckers und der herrschenden Auffassung - unabhängig voneinander sind. Die deutschsprachige Zeitschrift enthält meist unbezeichnete Aufsätze über Luther, Böhme, den Ketzer David Georg, über Mäßigkeit, über das Sehen eines Wahnwitzigen, usw. Die Beiträge der lateinischen Zeitschrift stammen überwiegend von Jacob Thomasius, Christians Vater.

Nachdem er sich in seiner Vaterstadt Leipzig mit aller Welt überworfen hatte, ging er - mit Ratstitel und Gehalt aus Berlin ausgerüstet - nach Halle, wo er Vorlesungen halten durfte, aus denen dann die juristische Fakultät hervorging, der Kern der Universität Halle. "In den ersten Jahren mußte Th. den Schülern ... Alles in Allem sein ... Er hielt ihnen nicht nur Vorträge über die gesammte positive Rechtswisse … [Click Below for Full Description]
