        A Search made into Matters of Religion

      1615 - By Francis Walsingham Deacon of the Protestants Church, before his change to the Catholike. Wherein is related, how he first fell int his doubts: And how for final resolution thereof he paired unto his Majesty, who remitted him to the L. of Canterbury, and he to other learned men. And what the issue was of all those conferences. And how after this again he betooke him self to the reading of Protestant and Catholike Authors, for better finding out the truth: As also for discerning where, & on what side true or false dealing was to be found? and what the success of his search hath byn. Dedicated to the Kings most Excellent Ma.ty Second Edition. Small 4to (180 x 125mm). [24], 504, [8] pp. Title-page a little dusty and marked, some water staining to the lower fore-corners throughout, some occasional marking in places. 17th-century plain calf, ruled in blind, smooth spine ruled in blind, early paper label, red spinkled edges (carefully rebacked preserving the majority of the original spine, edges and corners neatly repaired, new endpapers). [Saint-Omer: Printed at the English College Press, STC25003. First published (also in Saint Omer) in 1609. The astonishing personal account of Francis Walsingham's (bap.1577-1647) conversion to Catholicism - printed on the English press at St Omer. ?.He [Walsingham] began to have misgivings about his position in the Church of England, after reading Robert Persons's book A Defence of the Censure (1585). So deep were his misgivings that he decided to set them forth in a memorial which he presented to James I at Greenwich on 6 April 1604; he was told by the king to discuss the matter with his new archbishop of Canterbury, Richard Bancroft. Under the latter's direction he had further discussions with two Anglican divines, William Covell and George Downame, as well as the former Jesuit diplomat Christopher Perkins?but to no avail. Finally, on meeting an imprisoned priest, Edward Tempest, he made a spiritual retreat and was reconciled to the Roman Catholic church. In 1606 Walsingham was one of forty-seven priests banished from England after the Gunpowder Plot. Entering the English College, Rome, on 27 October 1606 he was ordained priest on 12 April 1608 and was sent back to England the following April. However, on reaching Douai in June 1609 he retraced his steps to Rome and entered the Society of Jesus there. Now with the assistance and encouragement of Robert Persons, rector of the English College, he set forth an account of his spiritual pilgrimage in A Search Made into Matters of Religion (1609), with a dedication to James I. This work, by which he is said to have ?immortalized his name? Walsingham was sent on the English mission in 1616 under the alias of John Fennell, and there he laboured, as Foley says, ?with indefatigable zeal and abundant fruit? (Foley, 2.382), first in the Leicestershire district until 1633, then in the Derbyshire district until his death on 1 July 1647 there at the age of seventy-one. It is said of him that he engaged in ?many conferences with Protestant ministers, in which he displayed great learning and talent?, but that for the most part ?his mission lay amongst the poor, for it was his delight to instruct the ignorant and needy?, especially the children (ibid., 2.382). All the time he was never far from danger, especially from pursuivants; but he eluded their searches in ways that often seemed miraculous? (ODNB). Provenance: James Francis Anderton (c.1805-1853) of Haighton House, Lancashire.

        Filippica I e II.

      Filippica I. Carte 4. (s.l. nè data ma 1615). Molto simile alla variante b, ma con alcune differenze. Filippica II. Carte 4. (s.l. nè data ma 1615). Molto simile alla variante d. Cartine colorate del Settecento. Astuccio. Rarissime. Le Filippiche sono la più bella prosa patriottica della nostra letteratura (Ugo Foscolo). La questione del Monferrato diede origine a due scritture di polemica antispagnola e di spirito irredentistico: "Le Filippiche". Nonostante la prematura divulgazione, la stampa venne realizzata non prima del maggio del 1615 in quattro diverse tirature. Il contenuto della Filippica I è una esortazione ai principi italiani ad unirsi per "la causa comune" della libertà della patria, appoggiando il Duca di Savoia, elevato alla funzione di baluardo contro la sopraffazione spagnuola e di "liberatore d'Italia". La Filippica II, di tono più polemico che oratorio, invece dei toni unitari ripropone spunti irredentistici... I motivi antispagnoli, cui peraltro si mescolano elementi antifrancesi, si inaspriscono in puntate antirazzistiche che rilevano la inferiorità sociale e geografica della Spagna... Axs

A very good complete copy with an early mention of Shakepeare. John Stow (1524/5-1605), antiquarian and historian was born in London he built up a large library of manuscripts and antiquarian books. The Annales was first published in 1580 with the title Chronicles of England from Brute (the legendary first king of Britain). With the edition of 1605 Stow continued the history to the accession of James I. Our edition augmented and expanded by Edmund Howes reaches 1614. To Stow's brief Appendix on the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge is added a 26 page account of the colleges of London University by Sir George Buck. It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth-century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is a mention of Shakespeare: "Our modern, and present excellent Poets which worthily flourish in their own works, and all of them in my own knowledge lived together in this Queen's reign, according to their priorities as near as I could, I have orderly set down (viz) George Gascoigne Esquire, Thomas Churchyard Esquire, Sir Edward Dyer Knight, Edmund Spencer Esquire, Sir Philip Sidney Knight, Sir John Harrington Knight, Sir Thomas Challoner Knight, Sir Francis Bacon Knight, & Sir John Davie Knight, Master John Lillie gentleman, Master George Chapman gentleman, M.W.

      Lugduni [Leiden], Basson, 1615. Small 8vo. In contemporary limp vellum with ink titling to spine in contemporary hand. Traces after a small paper label to lower part of spine. Small paper label pasted on to top left corner of pasted down front free end paper. A very fine and well preserved copy. 5, (7), 94, (1) pp. ¶ The exceedingly scarce first edition of Sauter's seminal work constituting one of the very earliest treatises on bankruptcy, preceeding Thomas Goodinge's "The law against the bankrupts" (1695) - regarded as being the first work in English on the subject - by more than half a century. The work became an immediate success, a second edition was published the same year, and translations into the vernaculars soon followed. This testifies to the appetite in contemporary Europe for a work that tackled the phenomenon of bankruptcy from an economic, juridical, and moral perspective. Sauter here describes that bankruptcy is a phenomenon on the rise and that the primary cause of this is negligent accounting, fraud and deception as the most frequent causes. His position was that the integrity of contracts would then be considered the ultimate foundation of civil society and public order: "[F]idelity in performance of Covenants and Promises is one main foundation of a well ordered Commonwealth. [...] If Bankrupts the Arch-builders of fraud, utterly subvert and take this away, as indeed they do, who doubteth but that the Commonwealth, unlesse prevention be in time used, will shortly be ruinated? [...] If the Bankrupts weaken and violate performance of fidelity [...] the Commonwealth cannot florish, but become a body without a Soule" . (Sauterius 1640, p. 22 [The English translation]).Daniel Sauterius (or Sauter) a Dutch clergyman published the same year a treatise on business ethics. None of the major bibliographies list the first edition:Not in EinaudiNot in MattioliKress 159 (Only the German translation).Goldsmiths 713 (Only the English translation).

        Histoire de Louys XII, Roy de France, Pere du Peuple, et des choses memorables aduenues de son Regne, depuis l'an MCCCCXCVIII, iusques a l'an MDXV

        L'Idea della architettura universale

      1615. SCAMOZZI, Vincenzo. L'Idea della architettura universale. Two parts in one volume. Part 1: [xvi], 90, [7], 96-128, 125-193,[2], 194-218,[iv],219-352[34]pp. Part 2: [xii],172,[iv], 173-232, 235-269, [v], 271-370, [22] pp. (numerous misnumbered leaves throughout). Illustrated with two engraved title-pages, six engraved title-vignettes (repeated), one printed tavola, eight double-spread engravings (three woodcut and five engraved), 78 full-page illustrations (39 woodcut and 39 engraved), 18 woodcut head-pieces (repeated), and numerous historiated woodcut initials throughout. Folio, 350 x 233 mm, bound in contemporary Italian calf, spine divided into seven compartments with raised bands, skilfully rebacked, with the original spine laid down. Venice: Giorgio Valentino, 1615. |~||~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Scamozzi's L'Idea della architettura was called the "bulkiest architectural treatise written in Italy" (Wittkower) and next to the Quattro Libri of his teacher Palladio, it was the most influential architectural work of the first part of the seventeenth century. The publication of L'Idea was paid for by Scamozzi himself and is a lavish, beautifully printed book. The text and marginal notes are printed in a roman typeface, the numerous inserted Latin quotations are printed in italic. Each chapter begins with a historiated initial. All of the plates and most of the woodcuts are signed by Scamozzi. "Scamozzi, along with Sebastiano Serlio, Palladio, and Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola, was the most distinguished theorist of the Renaissance; like them he belongs to the artistic culture of northern Italy" (Martha Pollock, in Millard, Italian and Spanish, p. 386). "The last, the longest, and the most ambitious of the Renaissance treatises on architecture, the Idea constitutes a summa of Renaissance thought" (Ibid). Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616) intended to write ten books but only Books I-III and VI-VIII were completed by 1615. Fragments of his remaining four books were incorporated into later editions from Scamozzi's working manuscripts. Since architectural historians have assumed that the later editions cannot be read as Scamozzi would have written them, this 1615 edition has always been treated as the purest expression of Scamozzi's thought. Book I discusses general principles of architecture, Book II urban planning, Book IV contains Scamozzi's influential statement of the five Orders, and Books VII and VIII offers his views on building materials and techniques. A generally fresh, clean copy of a book that is normally found in lamentable condition. With the rare Registro leaf at end, which is frequently lacking. Almost all copies at auction have been either incomplete, in lamentable condition, or both. Avery's Choice ,54. Fowler 292. Millard, Italian 123. Berlin Katalog 2605. Cicognara 651. BAL, RIBA 2917.

        Declaración Magistral sobre las Emblemas de Andrés Alciato con todas las Historias, Antigüedades, Moralidad y Doctrina tocante a las buenas costumbres

      0 - López, Luis, Declaración Magistral sobre las Emblemas de Andrés Alciato con todas las Historias, Antigüedades, Moralidad y Doctrina tocante a las buenas costumbres., Nájera, Juan de Mogastón, 1615. 8º. mayor (22 x 17 cm.), 8 hs. + 472 folios con errores de foliación (en realidad 462 folios) + 7 hs., 210 emblemas ilustrados con xilografías (también con errores en su numeración). Encuadernación en piel de época restaurada. Ejemplar con pequeños restos de humedad y papel tostado por la tinta ferrogálica, habitual en los impresos del seiscentistas españoles. Galerías de polilla restauradas que no afectan al texto. Posee la singularidad de tener la xilografía del Emblema 169 impresa invertida, y no haberse impreso la xilografía del Emblema 190. Con todo, se trata de un ejemplar completo, con amplios márgenes. Primera edición castellana, de los comentarios a los emblemas del humanista milanés, Andrea Alciato. Posteriormente se reimprimirá en tres ocasiones más, todas ellas en Valencia, Gerónimo Villagrasa, 1665 y 1670, y Francisco Mestre, 1684. Alonso López, "El Pinciano", publicó en Lyon en 1549 la primera traducción al castellano de los emblemas de Alciato. Por su parte, Francisco Sánchez de las Brozas, "El Brocense", publicaría en latín sus comentarios de los emblemas, impresos también en Lyon en 1573. El humanista Juan de Mal Lara dispersó numerosas notas a los emblemas tanto en su Philosophía vulgar como en su Descripción de la Galera Real. La edición del extremeño Diego López viene a eclosionar la tendencia de fines del siglo XVI y XVII de incluir extensos y eruditos comentarios en las diferentes ediciones que aparecían en Europa de los emblemas de Alciato. En este caso, y pese al uso de la lengua vernácula, abundan las referencias a citas bíblicas y autoridades greco-latinas, que muestran la gran formación de este maestro de escuela de Valencia de Alcántara. Cabe destacar el carácter ingenuo de gran parte de los xilografías, en algunos casos cercanos a lo naif. En este sentido son destacables los emblemas dedicados a árboles (197-210), cercanos en su estética a los libros de botánica. Palau (nº. 139923), señala altas cotizaciones para esta obra, que además fue el primer libro impreso por Juan de Mongastón en Nájera, en un pequeño taller que compatibilizaba con sus trabajos en Logroño. La librería ofrece por tiempo limitado un descuento del 10%. El precio original de este ejemplar era de 1380 EUR. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Amphitheatrum aeternae providentiae divino-magicum. Christiano-physicum, nec non astrologo-catholicum. Adversos veteres philosophos, atheos epicureos, peripateticos et stoicos. -

      Lyon, de Harsy, 1615. In-8. Pergamena antica impressa a secco su assicelle di legno, dorso anticamente rifatto (remboîtage). (24), 336, (8) pp.; lieve e uniforme arrossatura della carta. Rara edizione originale. Vanini nacque a Taurisano presso Otranto e studiò a Napoli e a Padova; «esaltato come libero pensatore, detestato come ateo, annoverato fra gli scettici e fra gli averroisti, il Vanini può venir considerato come un diffusore e ripetitore, in forma esplicita e spesso estrema, della filosofia panteistica della natura del Cardano, del Pomponazzi, del Telesio» (Treccani). Dopo esser fuggito dall'Italia si recò in vari paesi europei e nel 1619 venne arrestato a Tolosa, processato e condannato al taglio della lingua e al rogo. Quest'opera ottenne inizialmente il permesso per essere stampata, ma una sua più attenta lettura poco dopo la pubblicazione, convinse le autorità a vietarla e a distruggere tutti gli esemplari rintracciabili. Caillet 11028. Dorbon 5060: «rarissime édition originale de cet ouvrage du célèbre philosophe et athée...». Rare first edition of this work in which the Italian philosopher professes «to set divine magic, Christian phyiscs, and Catholic astrology over against the ancient philosophers, atheists, Epicureans, Peripatetics, and Stoics...» (Thorndike VI, 568-573). Old blind-stamped vellum over wooden boards, spine repaired (remboîtage); mild uniform toning of the paper.

Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      - BMC STC Italian, p. 245; Palau 87526; USTC 806217 (8 copies); not in WorldCat. Rare first and only(?) edition of the Italian translation of the first (and only published?) part of a chivalric romance, generally known as the Félix Magno, translated by Camillo Camilli (d. 1615). The original Spanish was first published in four parts at Barcelona by Carlos Amorós in 1531 entitled Los cuatro libros del valerosisimo caballero Félix Magno. The romance deals with the life and history of Félix Magno, the son of King Falángriz of Great Britain and Queen Clarinea, on a quest for glory. A large part of the work is dedicated to struggles with Moors and Turks. Like most chivalric novels, it was heavily influenced by stories of King Arthur and similar romances like Amadis de Gaule. Our copy contains only the first part (with the running title Fatti di Felicemagno - parte prima through the whole work), and it appears the other parts were not published in translation at all. Lacking the final leaf containing only the colophon and its blank verso. With two owner's entries on paste-down. Small marginal hole on the title-page and following 3 leaves, very slightly browned with some occasional minor foxing. Binding with a few holes and the foot of the back board slightly damaged. Overall in good condition.

        L'IDEA DELLA ARCHITETTURA UNIVERSALE. Divisa In X Libri.

      per Giorgio Valentino, 1615. In-4 gr. (mm. 351x228), 2 parti in 1 vol., p. pelle bazana settecentesca (risg. rifatti), dorso a cordoni (restaur.) con ricca decorazione e tit. oro su tassello, tagli marmorizzati. "Prima parte": pp. (16),90, 1 c.b.,(5), 96-218, (4), 219-352, 1 c.b.,(16) - "Seconda parte": pp. (12),172,(4), 173-269,(5) 271-370,(20), incluse due bellissime antiporte figur. inc. in rame, con un piccolo ritratto di Scamozzi sotto il titolo. L'opera è composta di soli 6 libri, ciascuno con proprio frontespizio con grande marca tipografica xilografata. Il testo è ornato da pregevoli testate, grandi capilettera figur. e finali inc. su legno. Le illustrazioni, firmate da Scamozzi, sono così suddivise: la prima parte contiene 36 tavole xilografate (di cui 3 a doppia pag.) e 4 a doppia pag. inc. in rame - nella seconda figurano 40 tavole inc. in rame (di cui 1 a doppia pag.) e 6 incise su legno. "Prima edizione" di questa celebre opera. "'L'idea dell'architettura universale' è un testo che ebbe una certa importanza nello sviluppo delle teorie artistiche del Seicento. Concepito dallo Scamozzi in dieci libri, per seguire l'esempio di Vitruvio, uscì solamente in sei (e precisamente I, II, III, VI, VII e VIII). Il primo libro, dopo una lunga introduzione dedicata alla teoria artistica, presenta un elenco storico dei più importanti architetti e scrittori d'architettura. Il secondo è dedicato all'esposizione delle norme teoriche che regolano la costruzione delle città, alle considerazioni sulle caratteristiche peculiari dei luoghi in cui furono edificate le città più importanti d'Europa e contiene un trattato d'architettura militare. Il terzo descrive le costruzioni civili e ne illustra i differenti metodi di edificazione seguiti nei vari Paesi europei. Il sesto libro spiega i cinque ordini, il settimo tratta dei materiali da costruzione e l'ottavo delinea i principi che devono ispirare la direzione dei lavori di architettura". Cfr. Fowler,292 - Schlosser-Magnino, 415-17 - Berlin Katalog,I,2605. Il vicentino Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616), figlio di Giandomenico, editore e studioso delle opere del Serlio, fu architetto di gran fama, attivo nella Repubblica Veneta e al di fuori dei suoi confini. Sono sue le Procuratie Nuove a Venezia; a lui rimonta anche la notevolissima pianta della città e della fortezza di Palmanova nel Friuli, e il progetto per una delle più memorabili e affascinanti architetture dell'Austria, il Duomo di Salisburgo. Lievi aloni sulle prime 8 cc.; più o meno pesanti al marg. infer. di 42 cc. (nel 7° e 8° libro); ultime 2 cc. restaur. al marg. bianco. A parte questi difetti è certamente un buon esemplare.

        Archimedes. Opera quae extant.

      Paris: Apud Claude Morel, 1615. The complete works of Archimedes, the first edition edited by David Rivault. Folio, bound in full calf, title page in red and black. With 551 woodcut illustrations in text, large printer's device on title. This work contains the Greek text with a Latin translation alongside and has extensive explanatory notes. Brunet considered this one of the two finest editions of Archimedes, the founder of hydrostatics and theoretical mechanics. Brunet I 384; Graesse I 180. In excellent condition with light toning to the text. "Together with Newton and Gauss, Archimedes is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever known, and if his influence had not been overshadowed at first by Aristotle, Euclid and Plato, the progress of modern mathematics might have been much faster. As it was, his influence began to take full effect only after the publication of this first printed edition which enabled Descartes, Galileo and Newton in particular to build on what he had begun" (Printing and the Mind of Man). He anticipated modern calculus and analysis by applying concepts of infinitesimals and the method of exhaustion to derive and rigorously prove a range of geometrical theorems, including the area of a circle, the surface area and volume of a sphere, and the area under a parabola. Other mathematical achievements include deriving an accurate approximation of pi, defining and investigating the spiral bearing his name, and creating a system using exponentiation for expressing very large numbers. He was also one of the first to apply mathematics to physical phenomena, founding hydrostatics and statics, including an explanation of the principle of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative machines, such as his screw pump, compound pulleys, and defensive war machines to protect his native Syracuse from invasion.

        L'IDEA DELLA ARCHITETTURA UNIVERSALE. Divisa In X Libri.

      Venetiis, per Giorgio Valentino, 1615 In-4 gr. (mm. 351x228), 2 parti in 1 vol., p. pelle bazana settecentesca (risg. rifatti), dorso a cordoni (restaur.) con ricca decorazione e tit. oro su tassello, tagli marmorizzati. "Prima parte": pp. (16),90, 1 c.b.,(5), 96-218, (4), 219-352, 1 c.b.,(16) - "Seconda parte": pp. (12),172,(4), 173-269,(5) 271-370,(20), incluse due bellissime antiporte figur. inc. in rame, con un piccolo ritratto di Scamozzi sotto il titolo. L'opera è composta di soli 6 libri, ciascuno con proprio frontespizio con grande marca tipografica xilografata. Il testo è ornato da pregevoli testate, grandi capilettera figur. e finali inc. su legno. Le illustrazioni, firmate da Scamozzi, sono così suddivise: la prima parte contiene 36 tavole xilografate (di cui 3 a doppia pag.) e 4 a doppia pag. inc. in rame - nella seconda figurano 40 tavole inc. in rame (di cui 1 a doppia pag.) e 6 incise su legno. "Prima edizione" di questa celebre opera. “'L'idea dell'architettura universale' è un testo che ebbe una certa importanza nello sviluppo delle teorie artistiche del Seicento. Concepito dallo Scamozzi in dieci libri, per seguire l'esempio di Vitruvio, uscì solamente in sei (e precisamente I, II, III, VI, VII e VIII). Il primo libro, dopo una lunga introduzione dedicata alla teoria artistica, presenta un elenco storico dei più importanti architetti e scrittori d'architettura. Il secondo è dedicato all'esposizione delle norme teoriche che regolano la costruzione delle città, alle considerazioni sulle caratteristiche peculiari dei luoghi in cui furono edificate le città più importanti d'Europa e contiene un trattato d'architettura militare. Il terzo descrive le costruzioni civili e ne illustra i differenti metodi di edificazione seguiti nei vari Paesi europei. Il sesto libro spiega i cinque ordini, il settimo tratta dei materiali da costruzione e l'ottavo delinea i principi che devono ispirare la direzione dei lavori di architettura”. Cfr. Fowler,292 - Schlosser-Magnino, 415-17 - Berlin Katalog,I,2605. Il vicentino Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616), figlio di Giandomenico, editore e studioso delle opere del Serlio, fu architetto di gran fama, attivo nella Repubblica Veneta e al di fuori dei suoi confini. Sono sue le Procuratie Nuove a Venezia; a lui rimonta anche la notevolissima pianta della città e della fortezza di Palmanova nel Friuli, e il progetto per una delle più memorabili e affascinanti architetture dell'Austria, il Duomo di Salisburgo. Lievi aloni sulle prime 8 cc.; più o meno pesanti al marg. infer. di 42 cc. (nel 7° e 8° libro); ultime 2 cc. restaur. al marg. bianco. A parte questi difetti è certamente un buon esemplare.

      Lisbon, Por Pedro Crasbeeck, 1615 [colophon dated 1614 on leaf 147 verso]. - 4°, later seventeenth- or early eighteenth-century speckled sheep (spine wormed and defective in three of five compartments, corners worn; label missing), spine with raised bands, some gilt, text-block edges sprinkled red. Title page within typographical border, with typographical vignette in the form of a cross above imprint. Woodcut initials. Typographical headpiece. Numerous woodcut tailpieces. Minor marginal worming to a considerable number of leaves, never affecting text. Occasional very light small waterstains. In good to very good condition. Old ink inscription in blank portion of title page: "Este livro he do // uso do mosteiro // de S. Joseph". (12), 149, (1 blank), 147, (1 blank, 24) ll. *** Second edition in Portuguese, reprinted from the original Lisbon: Pedro Crasbeeck, 1611 edition.Bell writes that the mantle of Frei Thomé de Jesus, the most celebrated preacher of his time, "fell upon Francisco Fernandez Galvão (1554-1610), the prose of whose Sermões . . . is admirably restrained and pure." The author, a native of Lisbon, had evident oratorical talent at a rather early age: when he lectured at Coimbra soon after receiving his degrees there, his college audiences were held in rapt silence for as long as he spoke. After a dozen years as a royal preacher he left for Rome in 1585, where his skill was compared with that of Francisco Panigarola, Bishop of Asti. In 1590, when the Pope named him archdeacon of Villa Nova de Cerveira (archbishopric of Braga), he returned to Portugal, where he again found favor with the royal family. Fernandes Galvão bequeathed his manuscripts, including these sermons, to Amador Vieira, a long-time member of his household, with permission to publish them if he so desired; the word "traduzidos" on the title page is hence misleading, since Vieira collected rather than translated them. Innocêncio comments, "Estes Sermões são muito estimados, e o seu auctor tido em conta de um dos melhores theologos e prégadores, que no seu tempo floreceram entre nós. Doutrina solida . . . exposta em estilo conveniente, e adequado aos assumptos, com linguagem mui pura, corecta, e copiosa . . ."The preliminary leaves include two sonnets to the author in Portuguese by Christovão Garcia Frões and Francisco Nunes de Avila, as well as two neo-Latin epigrams, the first by Fr. Isidor Barreira, the second unsigned. There are also two leaves of dedication, and an eleven page "Prologo ao lector".*** Arouca G11 (calling for [11], 149; 147, [24] ll., and citing a single copy in the BN, Lisboa).

        Le mechaniche dell'illustrissimo sig. Guido Uballdo De' Marchesi. Tradotte in volgare dal Signor Filippo Pigafetta nelle quali si contiene la vera Dottrina di tutti gli istromenti principali da mover pesi grandissimi con picciola forza. A beneficio di chi si diletta di questa nobilissima scienza e massimante di capitani di guerra, ingegnieri, architetti d'ogni artefice, che intenda per via di machine far opre meravigliose e quali sopranaturali. Et si dichiarano i vocaboli & luoghi più difficili

      appresso Evangelista Deuchino, 1615. In-8°, pp. (8), 240, bella marca tipografica incisa raffigurante due ancore in mare unite da nastro recante motto: His sufulta, numerose illustrazioni nel testo, l'ultima carta bianca è compilata con appunti manoscritti, legatura in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso, restauro integrativo all'angolo inferiore del piatto superiore, carte di guardia anteriori rinnovate. Seconda edizione in volgare. L'opera costituisce la prima trattazione sistematica dell'argomento. Presentata come un completamento degli studi svolti dal suo maestro Commandino, essa delinea in un breve schizzo lo sviluppo storico della meccanica e sottolinea a più riprese la centralità dell'insegnamento archimedico... Dal punto di vista metodologico insisteva sulla inscindibile complementarità nello studio della meccanica tra dimostrazione matematica e considerazione fisica: si delineava in tale modo su questi presupposti il tentativo di una trattazione rigorosamente geometrica dei problemi, sottoposta al vaglio costante dell'esperienza... L'importanza attribuita dall'autore alla verifica fornita dall'esperienza appare chiara nella discussione di alcuni problemi relativi all'opera, sollevati da Giacomo Contarini : in una lettera del 1580 al senatore veneziano, lo scienziato affermava il costante controllo sperimentale cui venivano sottoposte le sue conclusioni "...prima che io habbia scritto cosa alcuna sopra le mechaniche, mai (per non far errore) ho voluto determinar cosa alcuna per minima che ella sia, se prima io non vedeva con effetto che la esperienza si confrontasse apunto con la demonstratione, e di ogni minima cosa ne ho fatto la sua esperienza". Il Pigafetta, nelle note aggiunte alla sua traduzione delle Mechaniche, ricorderà che Guido Ubaldo, per controllare una sua dimostrazione, aveva fatto "sottilissimamente lavorare bilancie... una delle quali ho io veduto in mano dell'illustre signor Gio. Vicenzo Pinello, mandatagli dall'istesso autore". Treccani Il Guido Ubaldo ebbe numerosi contatti con Galileo il quale si era rivolto a lui per sottoporgli alcuni teoremi relativi al centro di gravità dei solidi, destinati a "supplire a quello che si desiderava nel libro del Comandino" dedicato all'argomento.
