Primeira e única parte publicada. Na BNP apenas existe um exemplar incompleto. Obra escrita e publicada durante o domínio filipino em Portugal. O autor divide a obra nas várias excelências que se podem apontar a Portugal: as excelências da fertilidade terra; as excelências da Monarquia; as excelências da presença pessoal dos portugueses, a sua nobreza e o seu engenho; as excelências da Religião; as excelências da Justiça (a honestidade, a verdade, a fidelidade); as excelências da Fortaleza que demonstraram nas Descobertas e na conquista do Império ultramarino; as excelências da sua magnanimidade, clemência, e humanidade nos Portugueses; as excelências da Língua Portuguesa e dos costumes; e as excelências de quanto Portugal é estimado por Deus e pelos homens. INOCÊNCIO I, 276. "António de Sousa de Macedo, Fidalgo da Casa Real, Comendador das Ordens de Cristo e S. Bento de Avis, Doutor em Direito Civil pela Univ. de Coimbra, Desembargador da Casa da Suplicação, Secretario de Embaixada na Corte de Londres, e Embaixador aos Estados de Holanda, Secretario d’Estado d’El-rei D.

O Sr. Conselheiro José Silvestre Ribeiro a propósito deste livro, que não pode deixar de ser tido como um monumento de erudição, escrito com muita diligência e curiosidade, diz na sua Resenha da Litter. Port., tomo I pag. 18: «Grande prazer teríamos em particularizar algumas notícias d’esta obra, se não sentíssemos uma certa repugnância em praticar com um escritor português, que enjeitou a sua língua e escreveu em castelhano as Excelências de Portugal.» D’aqui resultaria sobre Macedo um estigma de condenação, que ele quis antecipadamente prevenir, quando na carta que ao princípio dirige ao Reino de Portugal, se escusa para com este, dizendo-lhe: «Perdonad, si dexada la excelente lengua portuguesa, escrivo en la castellana; porque como mi i [Attributes: Hard Cover]

ROBERT FLUDD'S TREATISE ON "CATHOLIC MEDICINE" WITH SECTIONS ON METEOROLOGY & STUDY OF PROPHECY AND URINE. First Edition of the "Medicina Catholica." "Apparently he was fond of lecturing his patients on his metaphysics, a habit which gave him the reputation of using 'chants' to work psychological cures. It would seem that it was a Hermetic philosophy which involved him in ceaseless controversy and, in the end, overshadowed his contemporary reputation as a successful physician and practical experimenter." â€" William Huffman, Robert Fludd and the End of the Renaissance, 1988. This work is part of the series of works (in four parts) that Fludd styled his "Medicinae Catholicae" and is sometimes found with the "Integrum Morborum." Contained are: "Prognosticon Supercoeleste" on the prophecies (pp. 1-96). This dealt specifically with meteorology and cosmology. See Fludd's "Prognosticon Meteorologicum." (pp.93-97, 98-165, including the Borealis). Iatromathematica (pp. 166-254). Signs of prophecy (pp. 154-183). … (pp. 184-203). Geomancy (pp. 204-212). Physiognomy (pp. 213-220). Chiromancy (pp. 221-232). His work on the study of urine (pp. 255-413) â€" including some sample of nativities or birth charts. Page 336 [misnumbered "334"] shows Fludd's drawing of the "kidneys with the aorta and vena cava, showing the drainage through the urinary vessels to the bladder. Also shown is the male anatomy of the testes, vas deferens, seminal vesicles and penis." â€" Adam McLean (p.466). Fludd's own anatomical work is heavily influenced by Vesalius and his great Fabrica of 1543 (just 88 years earlier). "Fludd was a successful London physician with good connections, but his prolific writings were much more concerned with neoplatonism and the occult than traditional medicine. His books were all printed on the Continent, as he did not have to pay towards the production costs which he would have done in London, with the result that they were little read in England." Circle of urinary colors. This plate depicts the Paracelsian physician in his chair, book open to the appropriate passages, with the figure surrounded by vials of different colored urine, which revolve heliocentrically around his seated body like planets in the Copernican system (here, the physician himself, his heart animated by the Holy Spirit, takes the place of the sun, the light of which resides in his heart. Only the alchemical golden color indicated a state of perfect inner health. "Here in the 'sun' (or central) position on Winthrop's chair sits a physician in his chair, expounding knowledge of urinary colors from a medical book proper open on a small table. Orbiting around this central figure are seven spheres filled with text poured into them from urine vials, which read, in a circular pattern beginning from the … right: 'Reds, ranging from a crocus-colour to that of intense fire, signify excesses in the digestion'; with the final sphere of gold and of course perfect health at top left: 'Golden colours alone are the sign of a perfect digestion.' This engraving is the vignette on the title-page of the section called 'Physiological Urinomancy' where Fludd devotes five books to diagnosis by examination of urine. â€" paraphrased or quoted from Kamil, p. 253. The physician is examining a specimen. "Color is determined by holding a specimen up to light traveling between the sun and the physician's heart. The pontil glass window forms circles … perhaps the window alludes to the light of grace opening the book of nature." â€" Kamil. REFERENCES: VD17 12:167434F; [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        THE HISTORY OF THAT MOST FAMOUS SAYNT AND SOULDIER OF CHRIST JESUS; ST. GEORGE OF CAPPADOCIA

      London: Printed for Henry Seyle, 1631. FIRST EDITION. Written to curry favor with Charles I after the author's appointment to chaplain-in-ordinary, this work seeks to affirm the existence of Saint George, the patron saint of England and the Order of the Garter. Charles had a special affinity for the Order and instituted a number of reforms to its rites and ceremonies, seeking to renew and bolster its symbolic importance and chivalric overtones. The present work pushes this agenda by parsing through ancient and Medieval sources that would legitimize and verify the existence of the saint, and by quieting critics who would cast doubts on the veracity of Saint George's life and deeds. Heylyn was no stranger to controversy and combative writing, but here he "adopted a more direct and less controversial route in the form of his History of St George . . . with an eye to Charles's particular and well-known enthusiasm for the Order of the Garter," according to the DNB. The book ends with an index listing all the Knights in the Order under each sovereign from Edward III to Charles I. Peter Heylyn (1600-62) was a lecturer on historical geography at Oxford and an advocate of high-church Anglicanism. He wrote more than 50 works in his lifetime, many of which were polemical and highly critical of his rivals and foes, particularly when their disgrace would serve to advance his own social position.. 183 x 140 mm. (7 1/8 x 5 3/8"). [20], 351 (i.e. 349) pp. (complete but with pagination errors). FIRST EDITION. Contemporary limp vellum, hinges neatly reinforced with modern buckram. With additional engraved title page. Front pastedown with the armorial bookplate of George Courtenay; front free endpaper with ownership signature of Alice R. Francis, Crofton Hall 1886. STC 13272. Small split at tail of upper joint, vellum a bit soiled and stained, but a very well-preserved original binding; engraved title with a small tear at edge (no loss), a hint of browning at edges internally, other trivial defects, but still an extremely pleasing copy, the text unusually fresh and clean, and with very good margins.

An English merchant introduced them to the court of the Great Mogul at Agra arriving in December 1609. Coverte with his companions started out for home from Agra at the beginning of 1610 choosing to travel overland through Kandahar, Esfahan, and Baghdad. They reached Aleppo in December 1610 and then took a ship back to England arriving in April 1611. Coverte's account of his travels was first published in 1612 and again in 1614.

Mist het bijgevoegde werk 'Bekentenis, Bekentenisse des gheloofs, na Godes heylige woordt'. Zeldzaam martelaarsboek uitgegeven door de 'Waterlandse Doopsgezinden' onder leiding van Jaques Outerman en Hans de Ries. Het werk beschrijft in het eerste stuk de dood van 615 martelaren, het tweede stuk bevat een uitbreiding met enkele verhalen welke zijn verzameld in de periode tussen de eerste en tweede uitgave. Deze uitgave van 1631 is de tweede uitgave van dit martelaarsboek, de eerste uitgave verscheen in 1615. De eerste uitgave bracht een kettingreactie van uitgaven teweeg tussen de Waterlanders en de Friezen, twee van de hoofdrichtingen van het toenmalige doperdom. De Friezen waren afgunstig op deze Waterlandse uitgave en kopieerden simpelweg De Ries' hoofdtekst, waarbij ze diens voorwoord vervingen, en publiceerden deze in het jaar 1617 te Hoorn. Dit martelarenboek wordt ook wel aangeduid als het 'Hoornse' martelarenboek en werd uitgegeven onder leiding van Pieter Jansz. Twisck en Syvaert Pieters. Van beide uitgaven verschenen twee edities wat resulteerde in vier gelijkende martelarenboeken waarvan deze uitgave het sluitstuk is. Dit is de eerste uitgave van een martelaarsboek dat de bekende naam van martelaarsspiegel in de titel heeft.

        Das Königliche Marck aller Länder / Das ist: Politischer Discurs Zwischen Polygamo und Monogamo von der Polygamia Oder Vielweiberey. auffgesetzt Und mit mehr als 100. Argumenten erkläret.

      26 nn. Bl.. 4 (19,8 x 16,3 cm). Moderne Interimsbroschur mit Leinenstreifen am Rücken. Johannes Leyser oder Lyser, 1631-84, Sohn des Polykarp Leyser II und damit Abkömmling einer bedeutenden Gelehrtenfamilie, geboren in Leipzig, gestorben irgendwo zwischen Paris und Versailles nach langer Zeit des Umherirrens in ganz Europa, wird gelegentlich und fälschlich als Pseudonym des Schauspielers, Musiker und Dichters Johann Peter Theodor Burmeister (1804-1870) aufgelöst, wohl weil dieser unter seiner zahlreichen Pseudonymen sich auch Johann Peter Lyser nannte (vgl. B. Pünjer in ADB, 18, S. 526f - Eintrag unter dem Vater vgl. auch Eymer 50). Leyser, studierter Theologe und Lutheraner, war lange Vorsteher der Landesschule in Schulpforta, die zwei Jahrhunderte später ein weiterer rebellischer Eliteschüler, Friedrich Nietzsche, besuchte. Leysers Anschauungen der Notwendigkeit von Polygamie als natur- und gottgegeben erzwangen den Bruch mit dem Vater, der Familie und der Gesellschaft insgesamt, die im Gegenzug seine Schriften verbot und verbrannte. Hayn/G. VI, 235: Jöcher II, 2629f. (Weller I, 36 - Druckort nicht aufgelöst). Bei dem Drucker "Cunrath", dessen Name leicht die Assoziation zum dem des berühmten Alchemisten Khunrath erlaubt und damit einer Mystifikation Vorschub leistet, handet es sich möglicherweise um den Hamburger Drucker Henricus Künrath, tätig 1670-93 (vgl. Gruys/de Wolf 48), damit wäre "Friburgus" die "Freie" Stadt Ham"burg". Einige kleinere Randläsuren wasserrandig fleckig und angegraut Unterstreichungen von alter Hand.

        An Explanation of the Fashion and Use of the Three and Fifty Instruments of Chirurgery. Gathered Out Of Ambrosius Pareus , the Famous French Chirurgian, and Done Into English, for the Behoofe of Yong Practicioners of Chirurgery, by H.C. (Helkiah Crooke).

      London, Printed for Michael Sparke. 1631 - Small folio (210 x 320mm, 8 1/2 x 12 1/2ins) mid 19th century half morocco, marbled boards, spine mostly stripped, sound. Title with wood-cut figure, (iv) including Printer to the Reader (a lurid and illustrated description of a deformed murderer), (vi Preface to the Chirurgians), (iv) including To The Younger Sort of Barber-Chirugrians, 60. Many wood-cut illustrations of instruments and procedures throughout. Very light waterstain to first few gatherings. First, largest, Edition STC 19189, 6063, sometimes found as a supplement to Microkosmographia. Also mentioned is an abbreviated issue of 1634 (also Russell 223). Pare, a barber surgeon, rose through military experience to be physician to the French monarch Henry II and his successors. "The father of modern surgery." (Baas, Outlines). Crooke, whose most famous and controversial work Mikrokosmographia shared the publisher Jaggard with Shakespeare, and was at best a compilation, was the first doctor to hold the office of Keeper of Bethlehem Hospital where some called him a pioneering reformer. However accusations of neglect of his patients and embezzlement led to his removal, the defence costs of which ruined him. In "Explanation" he fully acknowledges Pare's work, and adds his own very hands-on notes, enhanced by the comprehensive selection of fine illustrations. Label of Surgeon Major J.W.Fleming, a noted bibliophile, with his signature and m.s. presentation to the Army Medico-Churgical Society, Portsmouth on title-page.
