        Epítome de la bibliotheca oriental, y occidental, nautica, y geográfica ... Añadido y enmendado nuevamente en que se contienen los escritores de las Indias orientales, y occidentales, y reinos convecinos China, Tartaria, Japón, Persia, Armenia, Etiopía y otras partes.

      En la oficina de Francisco Martinez Abad, 1737. Antonio de León Pinelo (1589-1660) was a Spanish-colonial historian. Born in Cordova de Tucuman and educated at the Jesuit college of Lima, he left the New World for Spain in 1612 and there enjoyed a highly successful career, becoming attorney of the Council of the Indies and later a judge in the Casa de Contratacion in Seville. His Epitome was originally published in Madrid in 1629 and is here in the second edition as => enlarged and annotated by Andres Gonzalez de Barcia: It was the first bibliography for the field of Americana and to this day it remains a important source for scholars and collectors of the colonial era of the New World for its => wealth of bibliographic data and most especially information about manuscripts. Rich says of this edition that it is, "The most complete general bibliography of geographical works, travels, missionary reports, etc." And LeClerc echoes him: "ouvrage extremement important pour la bibliographie americaine." The work is handsomely printed (although erratic in its pagination and signature markings), in double-column format, featuring title-pages in black and red with an engaging small engraved vignette of a ship between pillars reading "Plus" and "Ultra." Provenance: Ownership stamp of Carlos Sanz in several places.

Luzán Claramunt was Spain's principal exponent of the Franco-Italian theories of poetics and though he failed miserably as a constructive critic, he practiced destructive criticism very effectively on the works even of Lope de Vega and Calderon!

        Historia des Yncas Rois du Peru . on a joint a cette edition L'Histoire de la conquete de la Florida

      Jean Frederic Bernard, Amsterdam 1737 - 2 volumes. [xxxvi]+540+[15 index] pages with title in red and black, frontispiece and ten additional plates, one folding map and index; xxiii+373+[iv] pages with title in red and black, five plates with one folding and two folding maps. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 7 1/2") bound in contemporary calf with six raised spine bands with black and red labels in three compartment lettered in gilt, half titles in both volumes. (Palau 85403; Sabin 98752). Provence The Explorers Club Collection. This French translation of Vega is noted for its fine plates after Picart and includes maps of the Mississippi region with Hennepin's Discovery of a Country greater than Eyurope, Florida and northern New Spain, later Texas. This two volume set contains two of his most famous works. In volume one the Comentarios Reales de los Incas (part 1: 1609; part 2, the Historia General del Peru was published posthumously in 1617). In volume two La Florida del Inca was published in Lisbon (1605). Garcilaso de la Vega, the "Inca," was born Gomez Suarez de Figueroa in Cuzco on April 12th, 1539. His father was the prominent conquistador captain Sebastian Garcilaso de la Vega y Vargas. His mother was Isabel Suarez Chimpu Ocllo, niece of Inca Huaina Capac and concubine to the Spanish captain. Her status as Inca princess and mother of his first-born son did not prevent Sebastian Garcilaso from later marrying a well-born Spanish woman (dona Luisa Martel, who was only four years older than Gomez) and marrying Isabel off to a commoner (Juan del Pedroche). Their son was thus one of the first Peruvian mestizos, and both sides of the family took care to ensure that he was exposed to the traditions of their respective cultures. He learned first Quechua and then Spanish before embarking on an elementary study of Latin in Cuzco. The first volume of this history recounts the origins and rise of the Inca empire, using accounts sent by native friends in Peru as well as Garcilaso's own childhood memories which were filled with stories handed down by Inca relatives. Again, the overall impression conveyed by the work is that the Incas ruled their realm wisely and well, on the classical model of pagan Rome. Their only real flaw was their unwitting idolatry, and Garcilaso lauded Spanish attempts at proselytization. His message, however, was clear: the Incas were a noble people deserving to be treated with respect and perhaps allowed a role in the governance of their own territories. With the publication of the Florida, Garcilaso's attention returned to the New World. For years he had collaborated with Gonzalo Silvestre, a survivor of de Soto's expedition to what are now the southeastern United States, to give an epic account of that voyage. Garcilaso's narrative used classical allusions to at once make the conquistadors into heroic figures and depict the Indians as noble pagans analogous to the ancient Romans and Greeks. The Explorers Club is an American-based international multidisciplinary professional society with the goal of promoting scientific exploration and field study. The club was founded in New York City, and has served as a meeting point for explorers and scientists worldwide. In 1904, a group of men active in exploration met at the request of Henry Collins Walsh, to form an organization to unite explorers in the bonds of good fellowship and to promote the work of exploration by every means in its power. Among these men were Adolphus Greely, Donaldson Smith, Henry Collins Walsh, Carl Lumholtz, Marshall Saville, Frederick Dellenbaugh, and David Brainard. After several further informal meetings, The Explorers Club was incorporated on October 25, 1905. Women were first admitted in 1981, with a class including Sylvia Earle and Kathryn Sullivan.

Cette seconde édition, bien mieux imprimée que la précédente, utilise les mêmes estampes et jusqu’au frontispice. L’édition originale publiée à Anvers pendant l’exil de l’auteur est extrêmement rare, une partie de l’édition ayant brûlé dans le magasin du libraire. Dans cette édition, la lettre de Newcastle à ses fils (Charles Vicomte de Mansfield, et Henry Cavendish) est comprise dans la pagination et occupe les 3 premières pages. La conclusion au lecteur et les additions qui forment un supplément paginé à part dans la 1ère édition, occupent dans celle-ci, les pages 215 à 231. William Cavendish, 1er Duc de Newcastle (1592-1676), grand seigneur, homme de guerre, et célèbre écuyer anglais. Nommé gouverneur du prince de Galles en 1638, il mit sa fortune et son armée au service des rois Jacques Ier, Charles Ier et Charles II. Mais la jalousie des grands seigneurs et les guerres l’amenèrent à s’exiler à Anvers, ruiné. S’étant de tout temps occupé d’élevage et d’équitation et ayant acquis une grande expérience dans ce domaine, il fit construire un manège et acheta plusieurs chevaux. Sa réputation en tant qu’écuyer devint universelle et c’est à ce moment qu’il composa et fit imprimer sa Méthode et Invention nouvelle de dresser les Chevaux.

Non s'ha da dimenticare che molte di queste dirimenti portarono nell'arco dei secoli piuttosto sovente a controversie anche pesanti fra l'Ordine e la Santa Romana Chiesa arrivando molte volte al limite dello scisma.

        Autograph Letter Signed and Subscribed, (Princess, 1686-1742, daughter of Vincenzo Gonzaga, 1634-1714, from 1692 Duke of Guastalla, and wife, 1709, of Francesco Maria de' Medici, 1660-1711, brother of Cosimo III and Duke of Rovere)

      1737 - in Italian with translation and transcription, signed "La Principessa Eleonora Gonzaga di Toscana", to "Sacred Royal Majesty", CARLO VII of Naples & Sicily, (1716-1788, younger son of Philip V, from 1759 Carlos III of Spain), distantly related to her husband as a descendant of Cosimo II, expressing her pride in "Your Majesty's Sovereign commands", but explaining she had not been able to thank him previously, "having rigorously to keep to my convalescence for some time, given the relapses which at every turn put me in considerable danger, and likewise . a most severe ophthalmia, putting me in peril of losing an eye, which prevented . paying my respects to so great a Sovereign as Your Majesty . to whom I am proud . to show my gratitude . may You pardon my involuntary error . I shall be proud to contribute as much as I can to your service where you shall grant me opportunity although up till now you have not employed your humble servant", 2 sides 11¾" x 8¾" and blank conjugate leaf, Florence, 28th May outer half of both leaves lightly waterstained without loss, in a few places the ink has gone through the paper but effect is barely noticeable A rare signature. In 1709 Cosimo III, with three children but no grandchildren, persuaded his brother Francesco to obtain dispensation from being a Cardinal, in order to marry and produce an heir for Tuscany. However the marriage was fruitless, and Francesco died in 1711, leaving enormous debts. Both Philip V of Spain and the Emperor Karl VI wanted Tuscany. In 1731 Don Carlos inherited Parma from his mother's Farnese uncle, giving him a foothold in Italy, and he garrisoned Tuscany with Spanish troops. Then in 1735 he re-conquered Naples and Sicily, detached from Spain in 1707 and 1713 respectively following the war with Austria, and in May 1735 was crowned at Palermo as Carlo VII. But Austria continued to press, and by January 1737 had replaced Carlo's troops with her own. Shortly before Gian Gastone, the last reigning Medici, died in July 1737, Austria forced him to accept Francis, Duke of Lorraine and husband of Maria Theresia of Austria, as his successor.

        Africa Secundum legitimas Projecttionis Sterrographicae regulas et juxta recentissimas relationes et observationes…

      c1737., Nuremberg: 1737 - Engraved double page (24 1/2" x 21 "), hand colored, large title colored cartouche in bottom left corner. Scattered browning, soiling, and dampstaining, which affects the image somewhat, but not overly obtrusive, lower portion of vertical fold crudely closed on verso, but repairable, some repairs to corners, wide margins, small publishers letterpress key labels mounted on lower left margin; despite its faults a still very attractive map. This handsome 18th century map of Africa presents Homann's 1715 map of Africa updated by Johann Matthias Hass to include new cartographic developments included by Delisle and D'Anville in their maps. The decorative cartouche shows Europeans negotiating with an African prince, with exotic flora and fauna including lions, a leopard, elephants, a rhino, a crocodile, tropical birds and an unidentified reptile complete the composition. An interesting feature of the cartouche is that the African prince is sitting on the back of another person. The map appears to provide an accurate depiction of Africa in the early part of the 18th century, without many of the fictitious lakes and rivers of earlier maps. Homann focuses on the known coastal regions of the continent, leaving the interior sections largely blank or marked Terra Incognito. On this map Egypt, Nubia and Abyssinia are shown as distinct entities. Norwich # 83.
