Es wurde durch einen Ausdruck auf altem Papier ähnlich ersetzt, ist aber als Kopie erkennbar. - VD17 384:717401L. Graesse V, 103. Vgl. ADB XXXVI, 49. - Einzige deutsche Ausgabe dieser illustrierten Monographie über das sogenannte Turiner Grabtuch. Auf dem Leichentuch ist schemenhaft das Abbild eines Menschen erkennbar (Vorder- und Rückseite). Es wird von vielen Gläubigen als das Tuch verehrt, in dem Jesus nach der Kreuzigung begraben wurde und das demnach sein Antlitz abbildet. Der Ursprung des heute in einer Seitenkapelle des Turiner Doms aufbewahrten Tuchs ist nach wie vor ungeklärt. Moderne analytische Untersuchungen lassen jedoch auf eine mittelalterliche Entstehung schließen. - Der Verfasser Alfonso Paleotti (1531-1610) war Erzbischof von Bologna, die italienische Erstausgabe erschien 1606 unter dem Titel "Christi Crucifixi stigmata Sacrae Sindoni" in Venedig. Aus dem Italienischen übersetzt wurde es durch den Augsburger Benediktinermönch Karl Stengel (1581-1663), der auch zahlreiche eigene Schriften zur Kirchengeschichte verfaßte. - Einband etwas fleckig und gewölbt, das hintere Innengelenk gebrochen. Titel mit blassem Stempel und altem handschr. Eintrag. S. 45/46 mit sauber geschlossenem Randriss. Gut erhaltenes, innen weitgehend sauberes Exemplar. Nur vereinzelt gering fleckig.

Wegecjusz, pisarz łaciński z ok. 400 r. autor jedynego zachowango w całości rzymskiego podręcznika sztuki wojskowej w czterech księgach. Pierwsza z nich traktuje o doborze i szkoleniu rekrutów, druga księga mówi o organizacji wojska, trzecia księga mówi o strategii i taktyce a czwarta o zasadach prowadzenia oblężenia i wojnie na morzu. Autor oparł swoje dzieło na tekstach greckich i rzymskich pisarzy, wojskowych, polityków i inżynierów. Druga część dzieła, choć wydrukowana rok wcześniej, stanowi komentarz do dzieła Wegecjusza, wykraczający jednak daleko poza dzieje wojskowości w starożytności, gdyż autor szeroko się rozwodzi nad strategią i sztuką militarną w ogóle. Drzeworyty tekstowe ukazują schematy militarne, plany ataków, szyki wojsk i oddziałów, sposoby budowania obozu rzymskiego i machiny wojskowe. The book contains 2 military traties with numerous woodcuts in the text. Front endpaper is lacking. Good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

II, 294f.: \"Selten!\". Erste Ausgabe. Streitschrift des Lutheraners und Papst- und Jesuitengegners Heilbrunner. - Die Geißlerbewegung entstand 1260 in Italien und breitete sich rasch aus bis nach Deutschland. Sie erschien danach in mehreren Wellen, meist ritualisiert und gepaart mit apokalyptischen Vorstellungen bis sie 1349 durch die Kirche verboten wurde und in der Folge mehr im Untergrund weiterlebte. Die erste größere Auseinandersetzung mit den Protestanten fand anlässlich einer Geißlerprozession in Augsburg 1605 statt. Der Geißlerzug fand mit allen Leidensstationen in Bild und Darstellung statt und geriet zu einem politischen Manifest, nebenbei zu einem Kriegszug gegen die Lutheraner, der mit der Mächtigkeit seiner Bilder auch auf die Konversion zum katholischen Glauben abzielte. Vor allem der Augsburger Pfarrer Melchior Voltz und Heilbrunner mit dem vorliegenden Werk traten an die Spitze der polemischen Auseinandersetzung auf Seiten der Protestanten. - Heilbrunner 1548-1616 war ein Theologe aus Ebertingen in Württemberg, zuletzt Prälat in Bebenhausen. Er war ca. 30 Jahre Hofprediger zu Pfalz-Neuburg. - Sauber und sehr gut erhalten. Versand D: 5,00 EUR Jesuiten Religionskritik

      presso Altobello Salicato, 1607. Cm. 20,5, cc. (8) 200. Marchio tip. al frontespizio, testatine e alcuni capilettera xil. Testo in corsivo ed edizione ancora tipicamente cinquecentesca. Bella legatura novecentesca di foggia antica, in mezza pelle verde con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso; ampie punte e carta marmorizzata ai piatti. Trascurabile segno di tarlo limitato alle ultime due carte, con interessamente di alcune lettere. Qualche sporadica fioritura, peraltro ottimo esemplare, carte in stato di non comune freschezza. Francesco Sansovino (1521-1583), letterato e poligrafo, fu al centro della vita culturale del Cinquecento italiano. Fu autore, curatore o traduttore di ben 93 opere in meno di trent'anni di produzione letteraria. Quest'opera, che ebbe grande successo e circolazione, presenta notizie d'interesse storico, geografico, politico, economico e sociale riguardanti vari stati d'Europa. Solo le notizie su Ragusa, Genova e Lucca sono opera diretta dell'A., le altre furono invece rielaborazioni, traduzioni, o brani semplicemente mutuati dalle opere di Paolo Giovio, Gaspare Contarini, Alfonso Ulloa, Leandro Muzio, Ottaviano Vestrio ed altri. DI particolare interesse è l'ultimo capitolo, di fatto una libera traduzione dell'Utopia di Thomas More, "Del Governo della Repubblica di Utopia". Cfr.

        Britannia - 1607 the 6th Latin Edition, First Map Edition

      George Bishop, Ioannin Norton, London 1607 - 1607; William Camden; 6th Latin Edition, First Map Edition; London, George Bishop, Ioannis Norton; Full vellum binding, Latin Text; 10/860pp plus index. Full vellum binding, a little split inside at half title page, but still intact, spine with ink title inscription. Damage to the bottom of the spine, 20 mm hole with material missing. Occasional foxing and spotting. Ink dated inscription to FEP. Some worming to margins. Dorchester plate with slight worn damage to the middle section. Additional Decorative title page with map of Great Britain, Eight engraved plates of Coins with 12 coins to each plate. 57 (complete) engraved maps, 55 double page (William Kip/William Hole after Norden and Saxton), two single page (Rutland and Anglesey), map of Berkshire with five Heraldic Shields. Nice plate of Stonehenge, another of a similar or the same, numerous Latin stone type figures, numerous woodcut initials throughout, few other in text illustrations. Britannia is a county-by-county description of Great Britain and Ireland. It is a work of chorography: a study that relates landscape, geography, antiquarianism, and history. Rather than write a history, Camden wanted to describe in detail the Great Britain of the present, and to show how the traces of the past could be discerned in the existing landscape. By this method, he produced the first coherent picture of Roman Britain. Britannia was recognized as an important work of Renaissance scholarship, not only in England, but across the European "Republic of Letters". Camden considered having the 1586 Britannia printed in the Low Countries, and although that did not happen, the third edition of 1590, in addition to its London printing, was also published the same year in Frankfurt, and reprinted there in 1616. In 1612 parts were condemned by the Spanish Inquisition. An abridgement was published in Amsterdam in 1617 and reprinted in 1639; and versions of the text were also included in Joan Blaeu's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (published in Amsterdam in 1645) and in Jan Janssonius's Novus Atlas (again published in Amsterdam, in 1646).

Han havde sammmen med boghandleren Hans Aalborg og møntmesteren Nicolaus Schwabe fået kgl. privilegium på at optrykke den danske bibel i oktavformat. Resens oversættelse er den første danske efter originalsprogene i den forstand, at han reviderede de foregående danske bibeloversættelser og kun respekterede deres gengivelser, for så vidt som de stemmer med grundteksten. Denne teksttroskab er i nogen grad gået ud over læseligheden." (Christian IV og Europa, 1651).Bibl. Dan, I, 9. - Thesaurus II, 377.

(mm. 206x148), p. pergam. molle coeva con unghie, tit. ms. al dorso, pp. (8),594,(38), bel frontespizio figurato entro cornice architettonica, con al centro una piccola veduta di Genova; ornato da testatine, grandi iniziali figur. a vignetta e finali, tutto in xilografia. "Edizione originale" di questa ricostruzione storica degli avvenimenti militari e politici che coinvolsero Genova e la Corsica a partire dal 1553 sino al 1569 quando le armate corse, guidate da Alfonso Sampiero, figlio di Pietro, eroe della resistenza corsa ai genovesi, vennero definitivamente sconfitte. Cfr. Brunet,VI,25881. "Sampiero da Bastelica, uomo d'armi corso (1498-1567). Di umili origini, fu soldato mercenario prima con Giovanni delle Bande Nere, poi nelle truppe imperiali; infine, al servizio della Francia col grado di colonnello, si battè valorosamente a Fossano (1536), a Perpignano (1542) ove salvò la vita al Delfino, a Ceresole e a Vitry (1544). Ritornato in Corsica e divenuto erede della signoria d'Ornano per il suo matrimonio con Vanina d'Ornano, fu fatto imprigionare a Genova; liberato e recatosi in Francia, organizzò e diresse la spedizione (1553) che doveva ridurre l'isola sotto il re Enrico II e anche dopo la pace di Cateau-Cambrésis non abbandonò i suoi progetti filofrancesi. Sbarcato nell'isola (1564), accese la rivolta contro Genova; dominato dall'odio, offrì a più di un interessato protettore la sovranità dell'isola (Carlo IX di Francia, Cosimo de' Medici, il papa).

Edizione lionese di questo repertorio di responsi giuridici su varie questioni di diritto penale, seguite da una raccolta di decisioni del Tribunale della Rota Romana in materia criminale. Il Farinacci (Roma, 1544-ivi, 1618), illustre penalista, fu Consigliere della Sacra Consulta su nomina di Clemente VIII e Procuratore Generale Fiscale della Camera Apostolica su designazione di Paolo V e giudice inflessibile, noto per la facilità con cui comminava condanne a morte. Noto per aver difeso Beatrice Cenci nel suo famosissimo processo (un altro famigerato processo coninvolse poi lo stesso Farinacci, con l'accusa di sodomia, poi caduta nel nulla solo per la grazia accordatagli da Clemente VIII), i suoi trattati giuridici (primo tra tutti la Praxis et theorica criminalis) condensarono brillantemente le codificazioni del diritto penale sino ad allora elaborate in occidente, facendo scuola per molti decenni, anche se gli studiosi moderni hanno ridimensionato il suo apporto alla storia della giurisprudenza (Franco Cordero lo ha definito mago dello scibile penalistico confusamente blaterante; cfr. Criminalia. Nascita dei sistemi penali, Roma-Bari, Laterza, 1985). Cfr. (con bibliografia) Aldo Mazzacane in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, volume 45, 1995: Il Farinacci ebbe fama grandissima fra i contemporanei e i giuristi del tardo diritto comune e del primo ottocento, che tuttavia non mancarono di registrarne la propensione per il malaffare. Oggetto invece di aspre censure da parte degli illuministi, quale rappresentante tipico di un sistema penale da rifiutare, ha trovato nella storiografia moderna giudizi egualmente divisi tra il moderato apprezzamento e la severa condanna. Impegnato nel difficile compito di ridurre a scienza il diritto penale, secondo il Fiorelli, dalle tinte manzoniane con le quali Franco Cordero ha dipinto la penalistica di ancien régime egli appare, al contrario, con le sue nequizie morali e intellettuali, come un esempio di quelle lingue vendute che popolano il circo penalistico del Seicento.

      [1607]. 1607 - ante hac semper incognita longis itineribus peregrini Academici nuperrime lustrata.Engraved title & 5 folding maps, engraving in text & small woodcut illustrations. 8vo. Attractive nineteenth-century plum morocco, gilt, very lightly rubbed at edges, a.e.g., some signatures/ catchwords cropped. [16], 224pp. [London, H. Lownes for] Frankfurt: heirs of A. de Rinialme Mundus Alter was not ascribed to Bishop Hall until 1674, when the librarian of the Bodleian, Thomas Hyde identified Mercurius Britannicus. The work (a moral satire against the Church of Rome) is one of the earliest fictional voyages set in Terra Australis and was an inspiration for Swift's Gulliver's Travels. The maps show in some detail the imaginary great Antarctic continent, and two also include details of the Americas. First printed and published in London (with Frankfurt given on the titlepage and the false imprint of Ascanius de Rinialme) probably in 1605, a second edition appeared in 1606 (with 1607 on the title) printed in Hanau by Wilhelm Antonius, and published there with the same fictitious Rinialme name. The copy here described is a re-issue using sheets primarily from the first edition, London, with one sheet (D) from the Hanau reprint. The London edition may be distinguished by having catchwords on both the rectos as well as the versos of leaves throughout. The title page is in the rare first state, with vertical hatching on the plinth, and the maps which are each marked with page numbers. STC 12685.3cf. Church II, 54; Sabin, 29819.

        The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes

      ondon- William Jaggard, 1607 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A very scarce first edition of this illustrated bestiary. Collated: Lacking pages A1-6, B1, B3-5, C2-3, D6, FF1-6, I5, M1, X2, 3H4, 3Y1-8. Title page in facsimile. Lacking the plate of Durer's Rhinoceros. Pages often misnumbered, as indicated above. A fascinating work, scarce in any form and containing many of the illustrations for which the work is famous. Edward Topsell was an English cleric and author. He is best remembered for this work and a secondary volume, The History of Serpents. Topsell's work covers both real and mythological animals, including a striking plate of the Manticore, a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra. With the bookplate of Humphry Primatt, a clergyman and advocate for animals. Primatt wrote on moral issues in natural philosophy, attacking unnecessary cruelty to animals including that inflicted through hunting and other sports. Primatt's argument, founded in the divine goodness of God, argued that as all animals were created by God, justice must extend to them as it does to humans. An interesting provenance for a work of this nature. Despite its defects, this is an attractive copy for any collector, with a unique provenance. Condition: Rebacked in a calf binding with original boards preserved and contrasting red spine label. Externally, smart with light rubbing to the boards and very light bumping to the extremities. Hinges reinforced. Bookplate of Humphry Primatt to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages remarkably bright. Title page in facsimile. Lacking several pages as outlined in collation. Occasional small marginal closed tears, light dampstaining in places and brown stains to the pages 211-222. Lightly spotted throughout, heavier in places. Marginal loss to p313. Repairs to several pages, particularly first 10 pages, the gutter of pages 4, 11-14, 227, 433, 749-756 andmargin of p25, 97, 104, 179, 296, 435, 439, 457, 549. Heavy repairs to p441, the plate of the manticore. A few illustrations have been closely trimmed, particularly affecting the Cameleopard. Overall: GOOD.

        Progymnasmata alchemiae, sive problemata chymica, nonaginta et una quaestionibus dilucidata: cum lapidis philosophici vera conficiendi ratione.

      E Collegio Musarum Paltheniano, Frankfurt 1607 - 1606-1607. Three parts in one volume. 8vo (161 x 96 mm). [16], 254, [2], 136; 165 [1] pp., including separate title page to third part, dated 1606, printer's devices to each title-page and at end of second part. Contemporary full vellum, spine with gilt-lettered morocco label and manuscript shelf number (light wear to exremities, some spotting and soiling of covers, lacking first free endpaper). Text somewhat browned throughout, occasional brown spotting, first title with short tear at blank fore-margin and binders glue residues at blank gutter, occasional ink and pencil annotations and markings in contemporary hand. Provenance: illegible ink stamps on first title recto and verso. Good copy. ---- Ferguson II, 304; Duveen, p. 530; Ferchl 460; NLM/Krivatsy 10038; Thorndike VII, 159; Partington II, 161; STC R 1208; Verginelli 289. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of an important work on alchemy, divided into three parts: the third, dated 1606, is titled Lapidis philosophici true conficiedi ratio (the real method to realize the philosopher's stone). "Of the three parts, the first contains 64 problems, followed by chemical remedies. Part two is an Appendix of Chemical Questions, containing the remainder of the problems, numbered from 65 to 91. The third part contains two treatises on the pilosophers' stone of 20 and 12 chapters respectively. The former was reprinted by Manget in 1720 as the work of Marsilio Ficino" (Thorndike). The latter, on which Thorndike is silent, bears the caption title "Tractatus alter de lapide philosophico anonymi cuiusdam". The pseudonym of this 'anonymus' can be disclosed thanks to a comment by a contemporary learned reader. He noted on p.86 that he had already found this treatise in a work of 1604, and that it was reprinted again in the volume of Theatrum chemicum. On the basis of these references, the author is easily discernible: it is Martin Sendivogius. His text was reprinted after the first edition of the "Novum Lumen Chymicum" in 1604 (Ferguson II, 367), omitting the preface. The learned men added this in a clean Latin handwriting on three leaves at the end of the work. It is interesting to note that Ruland's work was also thoroughly studied and dictated by Isaac Newton. Martin Ruland, 1569-1611, also known as Martinus Rulandus or Martin Rulandt, a famous German alchemist, a disciple of Paracelsus, was Rudolf II's physician. The copy studied and annotated by Newton is part of The Frederick E. Brasch Collection of Newton and Newtonian now at Stanford University Library. The book is very rare. We can trace only one copy (this copy) at auctions in the past 50 years (Zisska & Kistner, 2004, sale 43, lot 447, sold EUR 1725). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        The Historie of Foure-Footed Beastes

      ondon- William Laggard, 1607 Book. Good. Hardcover. First edition.. A very scarce first edition of this illustrated bestiary. Collated: Lacking pages A1-6, B1, B3-5, C2-3, D6, FF1-6, I5, M1, X2, 3H4, 3Y1-8. Title page in facsimile. Lacking the plate of Durer's Rhinoceros. Pages often misnumbered, as indicated above. A fascinating work, scarce in any form and containing many of the illustrations for which the work is famous. Edward Topsell was an English cleric and author. He is best remembered for this work and a secondary volume, The History of Serpents. Topsell's work covers both real and mythological animals, including a striking plate of the Manticore, a creature with the body of a lion and the head of a man. Topsell was not a naturalist himself, and his worked was derived from the authority of earlier works. In doing so, Topsell repeats various amusing and now obviously fantastic features of animals, including the misbelief that Apes are scared of snails, and that Elephants worship the sun and the moon. Likewise, Topsell includes accounts of mythological creatures, showing only some scepticism when it comes to the existence of the Hydra. With the bookplate of Humphry Primatt, a clergyman and advocate for animals. Primatt wrote on moral issues in natural philosophy, attacking unnecessary cruelty to animals including that inflicted through hunting and other sports. Primatt's argument, founded in the divine goodness of God, argued that as all animals were created by God, justice must extend to them as it does to humans. An interesting provenance for a work of this nature. Despite its defects, this is an attractive copy for any collector, with a unique provenance. Condition: Rebacked in a calf binding with original boards preserved and contrasting red spine label. Externally, smart with light rubbing to the boards and very light bumping to the extremities. Hinges reinforced. Bookplate of Humphry Primatt to front pastedown. Internally, firmly bound. Pages remarkably bright. Title page in facsimile. Lacking several pages as outlined in collation. Occasional small marginal closed tears, light dampstaining in places and brown stains to the pages 211-222. Lightly spotted throughout, heavier in places. Marginal loss to p313. Repairs to several pages, particularly first 10 pages, the gutter of pages 4, 11-14, 227, 433, 749-756 andmargin of p25, 97, 104, 179, 296, 435, 439, 457, 549. Heavy repairs to p441, the plate of the manticore. A few illustrations have been closely trimmed, particularly affecting the Cameleopard. Overall: GOOD.
