         Histoire dv S. Sacrement de Miracle. Reposant à Brvxelles, en l'Eglise Collegiale de S. Goudele, & des Miracles faictz par iceluy

      Brussels: Rutger Velpius, 1605. 8vo (151 x 93 mm). Collation: *8 **4 e8 A-S8 (S8 blank). [40], 266, [4] pp. Roman and italic types, shoulder notes. 16 engraved illustrations including title vignette, one plate and 14 three-quarter-page or full-page engravings printed in text quires, by Adriaen Collaert, the engraving on p. 242 signed by him; three engravings are corrections mounted over the original engravings (pp. 4, 17 & 28). Lightly washed, but a fine copy, with excellent, dark impressions of the engravings. Late 19th-century Jansenist brown morocco, turn-ins gilt, gilt edges (minor scuffing to joints and corners).*** only edition of a grim miracle book, overtly anti-Semitic, containing a disturbing reminder of the intimate historical links between persecution of the Jews and Christian piety. The cult of the Holy Sacrament of the Miracle, of which this edition contains the first complete printed account, originated in an infamous host desecration libel, used as justification for the arrest and murder of a group of Brussels Jews in 1370, by order of the Duke of Brabant, and the subsequent expulsion of the Jews from that duchy. According to the libel, a Jew named Jonathan, from Enghien, decided to steal and desecrate communion wafers in revenge for mistreatment of his co-religionists. To do this he bribed a recent formerly Jewish convert named Jean de Louvain to steal the ciborium from the church of Sainte Catherine of Molenbeek-Saint-Jean. Jonathan was assassinated and his widow and son Abraham fled with the ciborium to Brussels, where with a gathering of fellow Jews they purportedly engaged in desecratory stabbing of the wafers, which miraculously gushed blood. The frightened Jews were then said to have consigned the ciborium and its contents to another converted Jew, a woman named Catherine, charging her with hiding it in Cologne, but she succumbed to remorse and reported the act to the local curé. While the recovered Hosts were transported in a procession to the nearby Cathedral of St Michael and St. Gudula, patron saint of Brussels, the accused Jews were burned at the stake and the Jewish community was banished. St. Gudula with its miraculous hosties became a pilgrimage site, and the reliquary containing the hosts were paraded in an annual procession. The cult of the Sacrament of the Miracle was not discontinued until after WW II. Many subsequent alleged miracles enacted by the hosts are described here at length, as is a cold-blooded accounting of the monies taken from the Jewish victims by their persecutors. Also provided is the text of a papal indulgence for pilgrims to St. Gudula; the history of another miraculous host, at the Augustinian monastery in Louvain; and a life of St. Gudula. The title engraving shows Saints Michael and Gudula flanking a seated God-figure wearing a papal crown holding the Golden cross which housed the miraculous hosts (also illustrated on fols. b8v and p. 72), and in which they were hidden during the Calvinist Republic (1579-1585). The remaining engravings are illustrations of scenes from the libel, a depiction of the Louvain Host reliquary, and a full-length portrait of Gudula (signed by Collaert). In his dedication to the ruling monarch, Isabella, Infanta of Spain, dated 14 July 1605, the author, a priest and canon of St. Gudela, explains his motivation for relating this terrible tale. A few partial manuscript and printed accounts of the miracle in Latin and Flemish existed (see Adam), but none circulated in French, the international language of the people. Yden describes blushing at his French, explaining that Latin would have been easier for him, and his indecision as to whether to see his manuscript into print. (French was evidently also not the first language of the compositors, given the number of misprints and misspellings.) But besides informing the faithful, Yden explains, he intends to "confound the Heretics" (fol. *4v), referring to the Protestants, who denied transubstantiation and had publicly cast doubt on the tale of the miracle. The reliquary's reemergence in 1585 (recounted here), when the Calvinists were chased out, became another miracle to commemorate. Isabella and her husband Archduke Albert made the annual procession of the reliquary a state occasion. This implied parallel between the Jews and the Protestants had already been spelled out in the stained-glass windows of the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament of St. Gudule, made by Jean Haeck in the 1540s, and it had become commonplace to portray the supposed desecrations by medieval Jews as prefigurations of Protestantism. That theme pervades this work, not only in Yden's text. One contributor, in a preliminary Ode signed "C.D.P.," calls out jointly the "pauvre Juif" and the "hereticque abominable" (fol. **2r). Similar paired epithets or exhortations are scattered through the several preliminary verses, which include an Ode and Sonnet by the poet Maximilien de Wignacourt. Thus the work's resonance and raison d'être went beyond hagiography or miracle accounts. Renaud Adam, in the article cited below, situates Yden's text in the context of Habsburgian efforts to maintain Catholic dominance over the Southern Netherlands, and traces a gradual softening of the anti-Protestant message in later editions of the work (starting with Yden's own Flemish version of the text in 1608, in which he added witchcraft to his targets). OCLC locates a single copy of this edition in North America (Houghton). Brunet V, 469; cf. Renaud Adam, "L'Histoire de Saint sacrement de Miracle d'Étienne Ydens (1605), œuvre de dévotion ou œuvre polémique?," Revue Belge de Philologie et d'Histoire 92 (2014), 2:413-433.

         De Lumbricis, ...

      Basileae: Typis Iani Excertier, 1605, Kl.4, (12 pp.), Pappband. Sehr seltene Dissertation von Caspar Hofmann! Theses de lumbricis / quas ... Ad 8. Novemb. Pro Privilegiis in Medicina Doctoralibus disputabit Caspar Hofman, Gothanus Thuringus. Kaspar Hofmann, "einer der gelehrtesten Aerzte und zugleich Vertreter der alten Medicin im 17. Jahrhundert, am 9. November 1572 in Gotha als Sohn eines Schmieds geboren, studirte Medicin in Leipzig, seit 1592 in Strassburg und seit 1594 in Altdorf, hier unter TAURELLUS und SCHERBIUS. Ein ihm von letztgenannter Universität verliehenes Stipendium setzte ihn in den Stand, nach Padua zu gehen und dort seine Studien, speciell unter FABRIZIO AB ACQUAPENDENTE, fortzusetzen. Dann ging Hofman nach Basel, hörte FELIX PLATER und KASPAR BACHIN und wurde hier 1605 Dr. med. mit der Dissertation: "De lumbricis". 1606 kehrte er nach Deutschland zurück, wurde in Nürnberg, wo eine schwere Pestepidemie herrschte, an Stelle des Prof. TAURELLUS, der als ein Opfer seines Berufes gestorben war, zum "Pestarzt" ernannt. Später rückte Hofman auch in die durch den Tod des Letzteren erledigte Professur der Medicin in Altdorf ein, welche er etwa 40 Jahre lang, bis zu seinem am 3. November 1648 nach einer mehrjährigen Lähmung erfolgten Tode, inne hatte. Hofman war ein verbissener Anhänger der alten, speciell der GALEN'schen Lehren und Gegner der neueren Medicin, unter Anderem auch der HARVEY'schen Lehre vom Kreislauf. Eine von ihm geplante Ausgabe der Schriften GALEN'S mit verbessernden Varianten und Commentaren blieb unvollendet. Die Zahl seiner anderweitigen Schriften ist gross. Ausser einer Menge von Dissertationen schrieb er: "Lectiones caniculares de febribus malignis" (Basel 1606) - " Variarum lectionum libri VI, in quibus loca multa Dioscoridis, Athenaei, Plinii, Hippocratis, Aristotelis, Galeni, aliorumque, qua illustrantur, qua explicantur" (Leipzig 1619) - "Commentarii in Galeni de usu partium corporis lxumani libri XVII etc." (Frankfurt 1625, fol.) - "De thorace ejusque partibus commentarius tripartitus, in qua etc." (Ibid. 1627, fol.) - "Pathologia parva qua methodus Galeni practica explicatur" (Jena 1640) - "Institutionen medicarum libri VI" (Lyon .1645) - "De medicamentis officinalibus etc." (Paris 1646 Frankfurt 166ß) - "Institutionum suarum epitome in sex libros digesta" (Paris 1648 Frankfurt 1670 Heidelberg 1672) - "Tractatus de febribus" (Tübingen 1663) und noch viele andere, recht unbedeutende und meist nur die Ansichten der Alten, des GALEN , ARISTOTELES U. A. wiedergebende Schriften. - Uebrigens ist Hofman. nicht zu verwechseln mit dem aus Lemberg stammenden KASPAR HOFMANN, Professor der Medicin in Frankfurt a. 0., der in der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts lebte und durch eine vortreffliche Rede "De barbarie imminente" zuerst es wagte, das schamlose Treiben LEONHARD THURNEYSSER'S aufzudecken (cfr. HAESER, Gesch. der Med., II, pag. 111).

         Pharmacopoeia Bruxellensis: jussu amplissimi senatus edita. Brussels, Jan Mommaert II, 1641. Small 4to (19.5 x 15 cm). With engraved title-page by Cornelius Galle the elder after Anthonis Sallaert. 19th-century half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      - Daems & Vandewiele, pp. 70-71; Wellcome IV, p. 357. First edition of the first official pharmacopoeia of Brussels, containing numerous medicinal recipes and offering much insight into the 17th-century medical practice in the Low Countries. Brussels had begun discussing plans to establish a Collegium Medicum ca. 1605, but failed to do so. A 1636 plague gave city magistrates the impetus to compile a pharmacopoeia, however, and they commissioned four leading city physicians to compile the present Brussels pharmacopoeia. No apothecaries were officially consulted in the compilation of the Brussels pharmacopoeia, reflecting the growing status of physicians and declining status of apothecaries. Amsterdam had produced the first official pharmacopoeia in the Low Countries in 1636, based in part on Valerius, but the Brussels physicians chose to take the 1638 Paris Codex medicamentarius Parisiensis as their principal model.With early owner's inscription on title-page and early manuscript annotations in the margins of pp. 169, 175 and 213. Trimmed when rebound in the 19th-century, shaving the top of the title-page and the manuscript annotations, smudges and small waterstains throughout, and some minor damage to the lower inner corner of the first few leaves including the frontispiece. A fair copy. Spine partly restored, hinges cracked and some wear along the extremities.

         Proverbes commvns, et belles sentences pour familierement parler Latin & Francois a tous propos

      Paris: Pierre Ménier II, 1605. 16mo (108 x 75 mm). [64] ff. Type ornament title border, printer's woodcut device, woodcut initial and headpiece. Discreet marginal paper repairs to first half dozen leaves, causing loss to portions of title border, supplied in neat facsimile, a few other small marginal repairs. 19th-century green morocco, central gold-stamped arms of the Marquis de Morante, spine and turn-ins gold-tooled, g.e., by Trautz-Bauzonnet (joints & corners rubbed). Provenance: Joachim Gomez de la Cortina, Marquis de Morante, supra-libros; small inkstamp on title verso, JAR. *** A small-format collection of French proverbs with Latin translations, arranged alphabetically, providing a convenient short cut to wisdom and wit, this version professedly adapted for juvenile readers, and cheaply printed for quick sales and little pockets. The over 1100 French proverbs were compiled in the early sixteenth century, probably by the translator Jean Gilles, of Noyers (Nuits, in Burgundy, "Aegidius Nuceriensis"), a cleric of the University of Paris. His principal source was the collection of French Proverbes communs, compiled in the late 15th century by Jean de la Vesprie, Abbot of Clairvaux; of which the first complete text was published by Josse Bade in 1519. This edition also incorporates parts of another contemporary collection, assembled by Gilles' colleague Nicolas Du Puy (known as Bonaspes), who may have contributed some of the Latin translations. The 6-page supplemental section at the end, containing 14 sayings or expressions in French and Latin with explanatory paragraphs, was borrowed from the collection Proverbiorum vulgarium of Charles de Bouvelles (1st ed. 1531). This edition reprints a version that may have first been printed at Lyon by Benoit Rigaud in 1558, which eliminated 58 proverbs considered, according to the preface, unseemly or disrespectful of religion. A Latin poem (Ad lectorem hexastichon) following the preface states that the compilation is suitable for children and "unmarried girls." Gratet-Duplessis found the choice of proverbs omitted to have been arbitrary. (Perhaps this "censorship" was the act of a compositor who wished to avoid starting another quire!) The printer's preface contains an unabashed plug for the book, urging the reader to use it for both edification and social prestige. Brunet and Gratet-Duplessis date the edition to 1602, but the address in the imprint, "chez Pierre Ménier demeurant a la porte sainct Victor," was used not by Pierre Ménier I, but by his son, active from around 1605 (BnF authority file). A very good copy, from the library of the great Spanish bibliophile. I locate one other copy, in Hannover, at the Goffried Wilhelm Leibniz Bibliothek. Brunet IV:136; Gratet-Duplessis, Bibliographie Paremiologique, p.124, no. 8 ("1602"). Cf. Natalie Zemon Davis, "Proverbial Wisdom and Popular Errors," Society and Culture in Early Modern France, pp. 226 ff.

         De agro Frisiae inter amasvm & lavicam flumina. deque urbe Groninga in agro eodem: et de iure utriusqve. [bound with:] Series consulum, eorumque, qui ante eos consulari potestate fuere in civitate Groningana

      Groningen, Netherlands: Gerhard Ketel, Typographi ordinarii, 1605. First edition. 191,[1] pp. plus a number of inserted blank interleaves; 56pp. plus several blank interleaves, two bearing contemporary manuscript notes continuing work to 1613. Numerous setting errors in the pagination, but sequence complete. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary calf, tooled in gilt, gilt gauffered edges. Initials "D.D.R." and date of "1607" stamped on both boards, within gilt frame with corner ornaments and a central oval with internal floral devices. Extremities and joints rubbed, front joint worn but sound, vestiges of absent ties at fore-edge, modern bookplate on front pastedown, a few side notes in the latter work slightly shaved at foremargin by binder, early ink ownership inscription on rear pastedown, ink note of acquisition/provenance on front free endsheet ("Lot 203. Sotheby's Gallery 1892 E.H. Laurence Library"). First edition. 191,[1] pp. plus a number of inserted blank interleaves; 56pp. plus several blank interleaves, two bearing contemporary manuscript notes continuing work to 1613. Numerous setting errors in the pagination, but sequence complete. 1 vols. 8vo. An attractive copy of this work on the history of the Frisian territories by German historian and geographer Ubbo Emmius (1547 - 1625). From East Frisia himself,  Emmius wrote several works concerning the history of that coastal area, and a number of his titles appeared under the Elzevier's imprints in coming years. The first work is noted as the second book printed in Gronigen (the first being another work by Emmius printed in 1603) and one must assume the second work is also close in that sequence, particularly as it often appears bound with a number of the copies of the former title reported in OCLC. A rough and inadequate transcription of the ownership inscription on the rear pastedown suggests the original owner may have been "D.D. Doct. Daüide Robertüm"; a witty Latin couplet adorns the first blank along with two later ownership signatures. A beautiful book in a decorative contemporary binding, in near original condition.

         Monasticon Anglicanum

      3 volumes, folio, contemporary leather, modern rebacking in leather, new endsheets, illustrated with engraved pre title, some text illustrations and 108 plates many folding, [40], 1151; 3, [14], 2, 1057; [6], 378, 218, [379-392 first index in volume 3] pp. Leather scuffed in places, one plate missing top half, a second possibly missing bottom portion of plate, but image appears complete, another plate upside down, some soiling, foxing and normal aging, a few pages with tears, but not affecting text; overall nice set of a very rare first edition. William Dugdale (1605-1681) was born at the Shustoke rectory to an old Lancashire family, and was educated at the King Henry VIII School in Coventry. As a young man, he showed an inclination for antiquarian studies, and through a relationship with Sir Christopher Hatton was commissioned to make exact drafts of all the churches in England in 1641. After a visit to France in 1648 he continued his antiquarian studies in London, and collaborated with Richard Dodsworth on his Monasticon Anglicanum, which was published in 1655, 1661, and 1673. It has been reported that Dugdale himself sold copies to booksellers who passed them along to a small, but appreciative audience. The work provided a history of the various orders in England, and an account of the individual monasteries. While other major editions of this work were published in 1693, 1718 and 1846, because each volume was published separately, it is very difficult to find a complete set of the first edition. It is difficult to determine the right number of plates for this edition, but it appears this set has 108. The 1718 edition seems to have a larger number of plates. Dugdale's other major works include Antiquaries of Warwichshire (1656) and History of St. Paul's Cathedral (1658). The set includes a letter dated November 30, 1956 from a bookseller acknowledging the sale of the set to a buyer. Extra postage required.

Con un"incisione in rame di A. Blothelingh, 3 vignette incise, 11 carte incise ripiegate, 9 illustrazioni a piena pagina e ancora vignette e illustrazioni nel testo.Ottima copia. TERZA E MIGLIORE EDIZIONE della "Mensa Isiaca" di Pignoria, la prima significativa opera di egittologia (pubblicata inizialmente come "Vetustissimae tabulae aeneae sacris Aegyptiorum" nel 1605). "Mensa Isiaca" o la tavola di Iside era un tavola in bronzo scoperta tra le rovine del tempio di Iside a Roma nel 1525, o forse nel 1527, divenuto uno dei più noti manufatti egizi dell'epoca. Questa tavola in bronzo, che secondo molti era stata realizza a Roma nel corso del I secolo d.C., giunse al cardinale Bembo, che consentì a Pignoria di esaminarla. Numerosi studiosi formularono differenti ipotesi riguardo alla funzione della "Mensa Isiaca", ma la spiegazione di Pignoria risultò la più semplice e la più convincente: si sarebbe trattato di un rappresentazione delle ceremonie sacrificali secondo i riti egizi. Le illustrazioni furono realizzate da Aeneas Vico. Blackmer, 1312; Gay, 1567; Ibrahim-Hilmy, II, 119..

         America

      Venezia 1605 - Carta geografica del continente tratta dal "Le Relationi Universali" di Giovanni Botero. Il popolare libro del Botero ebbe numerose edizioni dal 1582 al 1671. La carta del Rosaccio appare appunto nella sola edizione del 1605, e talvolta si può trovare nelle tarde pubblicazioni della Geografia di Tolomeo, a cura dello stesso Rosaccio. La carta deriva da quella contenuta nella prima edizione, opera di Giovanni Lorenzo Anania (1582). Incisione in rame, bella coloritura a mano, in ottime condizioni. Early map of North and South America from the 1605 edition of "Le relationi Universli" by Giovanni Botero, published in Venice in 1605. The famous book of Botero has been published many times between 1582 and 1671. Rosaccio's map appears just in the 1605 edition, but it can be found also in late editions of Tolomeo's Geographia, edited by Rosaccio himself. This map is derived from the earlier maps by d'Anania from the 1582 and 1595 editions. In the Pacific is a huge Nova Guinea, which appears to be a part of Antarctica. Discoveries noted in the Pacific include the Ladrones (Guam). Copperplate with later hand colour, in good conditions. P. D.

Schneider, Simon Stevins mathematisches Werk (in: Gebhardt, Visier- und Rechenbucher), S. 72 f. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe von Stevins Trigonometrie, übersetzt und ergänzt von Daniel Schwenter, das einzige im 17. Jahrhundert ins Deutsche übertragene mathematische Werk des großen niederländischen Mathematikers, Physikers und Ingenieurs. Das Original ("Driehouckhandel") war zuerst in Stevins "Wisconstige Gedachtenissen" (Leiden 1605-08) erschienen, einer in den letzten Lebensjahren zusammengestellten Sammlung seiner mathematischen Schriften. In der Vorrede geht Schwenter ausführlich auch auf die trigonometrischen Arbeiten anderer Mathematiker ein, insbesondere auf Joachim Rhetikus und Bartholomäus Pitiscus, dessen vier Axiome zu sphärischen Dreiecken er Stevins Arbeit voranstellt. Zudem übernahm er nicht die von Stevin berechneten Sinustafeln, sondern fügte stattdessen die bis dahin unveröffentlichten Tafeln seines Lehrers Johann Praetorius bei, die er nach einem in seinem Besitz befindlichen Manuskript drucken ließ. Der Altdorfer Mathematiker, zu dessen Schülern neben Schwenter u.a. auch Kaiser Maximilian II. zählte, hatte sich intensiv mit trigonometrischen Berechnungen beschäftigt und die Tafelwerke seines Freundes und Lehrers Rheticus überarbeitet und verfeinert. - Kl. Bezugsfehlstelle am Vordergelenk und kl. Stoßstelle an der Vorderkante des Rückdeckels. Tls. gebräunt bzw. etwas braunfleckig, insgesamt recht gutes Exemplar!

        Discorso…sopra l'Apparizione de la Nuova Stella. E sopra le tre oscurazioni del Sole e de la Luna nel anno 1605. Con alquanto di lume del arte del Oro

      Woodcut Medicean arms on title. 36 pp. Small 4to, attractive antique calf (final five leaves a little stained & with some minor marginal paper repairs), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Florence: C. Giunti, 1605. First edition of this rare and important book on the new star of October 1604; it plays a significant role in the first great controversy of Galileo's scientific career in which he turned his back on the whole philosophical approach to science and sought reliable information and secure knowledge about the physical world through observations and calculations. The controversy which arose from the appearance of the supernova of 1604 was, simply, did the nova appear far beyond the moon - as believed by the astronomers - or did it occur in the sublunar region as believed by the Aristotelians who thought nothing new could be created in the heavens? Gualterotti (b. 1548), "knew Galileo as a young man and showed him how stars could be seen in daytime through a long hole in a castle wall. In 1605 he published books [this and the following work] about the new star of 1604…He also mentioned observations of stars through a dark tube, and from a letter written shortly after Galileo's telescopic discoveries it appears that he, like Porta, had employed a lens or lenses in a tube without developing the potentialities of the device. He was interested in alchemy and composed much poetry. He died at Florence in May 1639."-Drake, Galileo at Work, pp. 451-52. In the present book, Gualterotti provides a long and careful account of his observations of the new star which he first observed from Florence on 9 October 1604. He "favored generation of the new star from the gatherings of vapors and exhalations in the region of the outer planets. He wrote at some length on the flexibility and penetrability of the heavens, on the presence there of elemental material in a refined and purified state, and on the essential similarity of matter everywhere."-Drake, Galileo against the Philosophers, p. 59. Both Galileo and Colombe read this book carefully. In fact, according to Drake, Galileo believed that Gualterotti's views were the main reason Colombe wrote his Discorso of 1606, in which he attacked Gualterotti without naming him. Gualterotti also provides here an important and early scientific description of a sunspot. Although not a scientist of great note, Gualterotti was a significant figure within the scientific debate over the supernova, thanks to his anti-Aristotelian theories and his connections to Galileo. He is also important for being one of the first to use a telescope although he only used it to observe jousting matches. In a letter to Galileo in 1610, shortly after the publication of Sidereus Nuncius, Gualterotti wrote that he had developed a telescope in 1598. But, as it seemed to him to be "a feeble thing" he neglected it. Very good copy of a rare book. ❧ Carli & Favaro 14. Cinti 14-(& see his long detailed note on the scientific contents of this work).
