         Traictez philosophiques. Par le Sr D. V. Pr. Pr. au Parl. de Pr. [= sieur Du Vair Premier Président au Parlement de Provence].

      Paris, Abel Langelier 1606 - 2 parties en un vol. in-8, [2] ff. n. ch. (titre dans un encadrement floral gravé, table des opuscules et privilège), 144 pp., 196 pp. (De la Constance et consolation ès calamitez publiques), texte entièrement réglé, maroquin vieux-rouge, dos lisse orné d'un semis de feuillages dorés en long, double encadrement de triple filet doré sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Petits accrocs en coiffe inférieure, petite mouillure claire suprapaginale, traces de restaurations. Edition originale de la toute première collective des textes philosophiques de Du Vair (1556-1621), exprimant le meilleur du stoïcisme chrétien de la fin du XVIe siècle. Elle contient : La Philosophie morale des Stoïques (1600), Le Manuel d'Epictète (1591), Les Responses d'Epictète aux demandes de l'Empereur Adrian, Exhortation à la vie civile, et, en pagination séparée, De la Constance et consolation ès calamitez publiques (1597). Cioranescu, XVI, 9318. Les deux plats comportent, dans un cartouche lauré le chiffre dissocié F (plat supérieur) M (plat inférieur). Il s'agirait de celui du poète François de Malherbe (1555-1628), ami proche de Du Vair. L'on aurait ainsi un émouvant témoignage des liens entre les deux auteurs. Une autre interprétation attribuerait ce chiffre à Françoise de Montmorency-Fosseux, dite "la belle Fosseuse", maîtresse d'Henri III de Navarre, futur Henri IV, de 1579 à 1581. OHR 2293, ne signale pas ce chiffre, donnant seulement les armes de Malherbe, qui couvraient la plupart de ses ouvrages. [Attributes: First Edition]

[12] ff. ; 427 pp. ; [5] pp. Clari Bonarscii est l'anagramme de Charles SCRIBANI. Seconde édition, parue 1 an après l'édition orginale, qui est une défense des Jésuites contre les attaques des Calvinistes. Charles Scribani est un Jésuite né à Bruxelles. "Pendant 40 ans qu'il vécut à Anvers, on le regarda comme l'arbitre de tous les différents de cette ville. Plusieurs Princes, entre autres Ferdiand II, Philippe IV, lui donnèrent des marques distinguées de leur estime. Il a laissé plusieurs ouvrages. Celui qui a fait le plus de bruit est son Amphitheatrum honoris, qu'il publia sous le nom de Clarus Bonarscius, anagramme de son nom. Il n'est pas étonnant qu'on ait dit tant de mal de ce livre. Les artifices et les procédés des Calvinistes y sont mis dans un trop grand jour, pour ne pas les avoir irrités. on sollicita vivement Henri IV de faire brûler ce livre; mais quelle fut la surprise des adversaires de Scribani, quand ils surent que Henri IV avait écrit une lettre d'éloge à l'auteur, accompagnée de lettres de naturalisation!".

         Indiae Orientalis pars septima [.].

      Frankfurt, Wolfgang Richter, 1606. - Folio (210 x 319 mm). (4), 126, (4) pp.; 22 ff. Title within engraved figurative border. With an engraved vignette, 22 engraved plates (2 of which double-page). Contemp. brown calf with gilt borders and decoration on middle of covers; blindtooled spine rebacked. Traces of ties. Book seven of Théodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies, which is considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material. Crucially, this much-sought volume includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the coast of modern Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and Oman. Practically "none of the names of places on the coast between Qatar and Ras al Khaima occur in other sources before the end of the eighteenth century" (Slot). The volume also comprises the account of Joris von Spilbergen's voyage to Ceylon in 1601-04 (with excellent plates). - Calf slightly worn, some browning due to paper. Title browned in the margins; some foxing to plates. Contemporary ownership inscription of Thomas Knyvett in upper margin of title (partly obliterated by a later owner), dated 27 June 1608; also inscribed "perlegi (I finished reading) 20 Octob. 1608 Tho. Kny." near lower edge of the title. Armorial bookplate and later ownership of "T. Norcliffe" on inside of upper cover. Thomas Knyvet, 1st Baron Knyvet (also Knevytt, Knyvett, Knevett, Knevitt; 1545-1622) was an English courtier and Member of Parliament who played a part in foiling the Gunpowder Plot.

Europaweit, lange Zeit maßgebliche Ausgabe der unter Kaiser Justinian I. (527-565) geschaffenen Kodifikation des römischen Rechts, bearbeitet durch den bedeutenden, französischen Juristen Dionysius Gothofredus (1549-1622). Seit dem 13. Jhdt. kennt man für das große Gesetzeswerk der Spätantike die Bezeichnung Corpus iuris civilis`. Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts faßte der Rechtsgelehrte Gothofredus die gesamten textkritischen Arbeiten zusammen und publizierte eine eigene Ausgabe mit Kommentaren und exegetischen Noten. Diese von Gothofredus bearbeitete Version nennt man auch Littera Gothfrediana`, sie hatte bis in das 19. Jahrhundert hinein Gültigkeit, wo sie schließlich durch die Edition des Theodor Mommsen abgelöst wurde. Die Bearbeitung G.`s wurde mehr als fünfzigmal neu aufgelegt, darunter, alleine zu dessen Lebzeiten, dreimal in verschiedenen Ausgaben (Die erste erschien mit einem kurzen Kommentar 1583, die kommentarlose zweite 1587 und die dritte samt Glossen 1589).

         De lo schermo o vero scienza d'arme. (2 Parts).

      Copenhagen, Henrik Waldkirch, 1606. Folio. Later marbled paper binding with handwritten title to spine. A neat repair to blank margin of title-page, no loss of imprint, and A3 with a repaired lower corner, resulting in loss of four words, supplied in old hand. Tiny loss to lower blank margin of last three leaves, far from affecting printing. Apart from that a very nice copy with only some light brownspotting to the first leaves. Engraved title-page inside a large composition in baroque-style (Jan Halbeeck) and on verso of title the Danish Royal Coat of arms (Halbeeck), engraved portrait of King Christian IV, to whom the work is dedicated (drawn and engraved by Nicolaus Andrea). Title to the second part with a large engraved portrait of Fabris (Nic. Andrea, after Melchior Lorck). (6), 256, (2) pp. The work comprises 190 splendid half-page engravings (ab 15 x 18 cm.), showing all sorts of difficult fencing positions, each with two naked fencers (engraved by Jan Halbeeck and Francesco Valeggio). The scarce first edition, first issue of this splendid work, which not only constitutes one of the most important works ever produced on combats with rapier and dagger, but also the first Danish book with copper-engravings and one of the absolute highlights of Danish book production. Chs. Richard Cammell in "Philobiblon" 1936 calls it "the most complete work produced in this art...It is also the first book printed in Denmark to have copper-engraved illustrations". The work is also known as "The Fencing Book of Christian IV", as the book was dedicated to and made for the great king, whose fencing instructor Fabris was. Salvator Fabris (1544-1618) was an Italian fencing master from Padua, who taught in many European cities, most notably Denmark, where became fencing master to King Christian IV. It was during his time in Denmark that he published his splendid work on fencing, which became a fencing bestseller all around Europe. The work was reprinted numerous times up until until 1713 and translated into several different languages. In 2005 the work was translated again into English. The splendid first printing was done by Henrik Waldkirch and is regarded as one of the very finest examples of baroque printing. "The type of book that this work represents was, at the time of its appearance, something quite new in this country, and if the book had not contained a specific reference to it, one would never imagine that it had been produced in this country as early as 1606." (Own translation from the Danish - in L. Nielsen: "Den Danske Bog" p. 101). "Fabris divides his work into two books and six parts. The first book treats throughly the question of broad principles and of the more 'academic' actions with the rapier alone, or accompanied with dagger or cloak; it discusses in a very exhaustive manner the relative value of the past and present methods. The second book is one wherein is demonstrated certain rules with which it will be possible to strike the enemy from the moment the sword is drawn, without halting or waiting any time, principles which has never been treated by any master or writer" (Thimm p. 97). The book was immensely influential and was plagiarized by many other fencing masters, just as Fabris' style was adopted by several official fencing institutions (e.g. the University of Jena).A second issue appeared in Padua in 1624.Brunet II:1155; Birkelund nr. 37; Thesaurus 456; Cockle: 754.

         Tabularum geographicarum contractum libri quinque

      Amsterdam: Cornelius Nicolai, 1606. THIRD EDITION. Allegorical engraved title and 174 engraved maps. Contemporary vellum, ties present; old light dampstain extending from upper margin affecting a number of leaves. Significant early annotations to numerous leaves and rear endpapers. Bertius' Tabularum geographicarum was the finest and most important edition of the Caert thresoor, Barent Langenes' miniature atlas first published in 1598. Langenes (fl. 1598-1610) was a publisher in Middelburg and most likely the author of the text of the well-known and popular work that set the standard for the miniature atlas. Bertius' revised Latin text and Ptolemaic arrangement first appeared in 1600 and remained influential throughout the following century. All of the maps are up to date, and of particular interest is the fact that the text is geared toward the specific maps as opposed to reciting general information. The fifth part of the present edition features 15 maps devoted to America, including Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica, the Yucatan, Hispaniola, Peru and Brazil, among others. Bertius (1565-1629) grew up in Beveren in Flanders and as a young man traveled widely in Europe. He moved to Amsterdam as a refugee from religious persecution, and after completing his education became a professor of mathematics and librarian at Leyden University. In 1618 he moved to Paris and became official cosmographer to Louis XIII. He was related by marriage to Jodocus Hondius and Pieter van den Keere. In addition to his miniature atlas, he is known for his editions of Ptlemy's Geographia (based on Mercator's edition of 1578).

         Den kleynen herbarius ofte kruyt boecxken, .Rotterdam, Pieter van Waesberge, 1637. Small 8vo. With woodcut device on the title-page. 20th-century boards covered with marbled paper.

      - Not found recorded; cf. BMN I, p. 502; Krivatsy 6188; KVK & WorldCat (similar 1606, 1614, & 1638 eds.). Only copy located of the only known Rotterdam edition of a very popular household medical guide for the use of the common folk, by Heyman Jacobs (active 1596-1645), identified on the title-page only as "H.I.", a Catholic in Haarlem who wrote two books on folk medicine, as well as folk and school books on other subjects.

         La Madonna della scodella

      1606 - Acquaforte, 1606, firmata e datata in lastra in alto a destra. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre, con l’indirizzo dell’editore Van Aelst. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, sottili margini oltre l’impronta del rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il disegno preparatorio all’opera, in passato nella collezione Mariette ed oggi al Louvre, evidenzia la naturale semplicità della composizione, che distingue il lavoro da quelli del passato. La Madonna della scodella, è la prima incisione dell’artista realizzata nel XVII secolo, e si discosta stilisticamente dal precedente Sileno ebbro del 1600. Caratterizzata da un notevole contrasto di luce e ombra, e dalla semplificazione, quasi geometrica, delle figure, riflette nell’ambito della grafica le tendenze che il Carracci applicava nella sua produzione pittorica. Ex collezione Städel Museum, Städelsches Kunstinstitut und Städtische Galerie, legs J. K. Brönner (Lugt 306). Etching, 1606, signed and dated in the plate in the top right. Example of the third state of three, with the address of the publisher Van Aelst. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, thin margins, in excellent condition. The preparatory drawing, in the past in the Mariette collection and now at the Louvre, highlights the natural simplicity of the composition, which distinguishes the work from those of the past. T The Madonna della Scodella, is the first etched work that Carracci made ??in the seventeenth century, and differs stylistically from the previous Drunken Silenus of the 1600. 0 Characterized by a remarkable contrast of light and shadow, and by simplification, almost geometric, shapes, reflected in field of graphic the trends that Annibale applied in his paintings.
