Sistema ou Compilação de leis vigentes em Portugal e no Brasil, instituídas no reinado de Felipe II da Espanha, publicadas por Felipe III, e estabelecidas pelo Rei D. João IV de Portugal. Fonte muito importante para estudos sobre a história do direito, sobre qualquer aspecto da história do Século XVII e XVIII e sobre a vida em sociedade nesta época. Os primeiros fólios apresentam as leis da Doação das terras, jurisdições, e direitos da Casa da Rainha que se juntaram nesta edição por ordem de D. João IV. Segue-se o Prólogo (com a conformação das Ordenações por D. João IV) após o qual aparece o primeiro livro das Ordenações, com 298 páginas, o qual contém os regimentos dos magistrados e oficiais de justiça.

O quinto e último. livro da Ordenações com - 179 pags e 5 pags de índice – trata-se da génese de um código penal, prevendo também as penas para os crimes de deficiente organização administrativa dos agentes do Estado. Estas leis - Ordenações - tiveram vigência no Brasil até o fim de 1916, quando começou a vigorar o Código Civil. Segundo o Prof. Alves Dias (in Um olhar sobre as Ordenações. Biblioteca da Cortes, 180 anos. Edição da Assembleia da República. 2017): « A restauração assinalada a 1 de Dezembro de 1640 não tira de vigência a recopilação dfas Ordenações que até esta data se usa. João IV sancionou-a como legislação sua: Hei por bem de minha certa ciencia, poder real e absoluto. de rvalidar, cofiorm,ar, promulgar, e de novo ordenar e mandar que os ditos livroa das ordenações e leys que nelas andam se cunoram e guardem com o se até ao presente praticaram e observaram, como se por mim novamente foram feitas, e ordenadas, promulgadas e estabelecidas. Bastou um pouco de engenho e a impressão de um pouco mais de uma duzia de folhas para apagar as mrcas mis clareas dos ultimos reinados e actualizar as Ordenações com legislação mais premente. Numa informação enviada ao Rei, Tomé Pinhero de Mello. a 10 de Mrço de 1643, explica como o manda fazer. [.] O processo de renovação da legislação - que deste modo deixa de ser Filipina para ser Joanina - é aplicada tanto aos exemplares que estão distribuidos e em uso pelo reino como à queles que aonda se encontram para venda.

        Nobiltà di Genova. di Agostino Fransone del fu Tomaso nobile genovese all'ill.mo & ecc.mo signor prencipe Doria.

      Nella Stamparia di Pietro Giovanni Calenzano e Gio. Maria Farroni, Genova 1636 - In-folio di carta imperiale (460x340 mm.); 36 tavole incise in rame e 4 cc. di indici impressi. Legatura coeva in piena pelle con fregi in oro al dorso. Bell'esemplare, magnificamente impresso su carta forte. Prima e unica edizione di questa testimonianza rara e preziosa di storia genealogica e, al contempo, della fioritura del gusto barocco più autenticamente genovese. Le tavole sono tutte incise da Jérôme David da disegni di Luciano Borzone, il quale dipinse paesi, fiori, frutti, animali, drappeggi e stendardi con quel meraviglioso ed energico tratto ch'egli aveva appreso direttamente da Malò, lungamente dimorante a Genova. L'opera s'apre con un ritratto dell'autore (1), segue il bellissimo frontespizio emblematico (2), la dedicatoria ai Doria (3), lo stemma della repubblica (4), un secondo frontespizio con la classica veduta di Genova dal mare (5), la raffigurazione di San Giorgio (6). Seguono 30 tavole che raffigurano le armi delle famiglie nobili investite dei poteri politici e ripartite nei 28 Alberghi istituiti dalla riforma doriana del 1528, integrate, come afferma lo stesso Franzoni, da "quell'altre che prima vi furono aggregate di volontà delle parti e quelle ancora che dopo detto anno e sino a quello del 1576 vi sono state aggiunte, e quelle che nell'istesso anno 1576 e dopo sono state fatte nobili". Questa affascinante opera finisce con otto pagine di stampa senza numerazione di pagina che contengono gli indici delle famiglie. Bibliografia: Manno, V, 25222. Cicognara, 2032. Spreti, 1579.

        Virginiae Item et Floridae Americae Provinciarum nova Descriptio

      Affascinante carta dei territori della Florida, Carolina e Virginia. Il titolo è iscritto in maestoso e decorativo cartiglio arricchito dalle raffigurazioni delle diverse tipologie di insediamenti: sulla sinistra "Civitatum Floridae Imitatio" mentre sulla destra "Civitatum Virginiae Forma". Lungo il lato sinistro si trova anche la rappresentazione di "REgis et rginae habitus in Florida provincia" con la puntualizzazione che le persone della plebe non sono molto differenti. Altri elementi quali: la rosa dei venti, la raffigurazione dell'imbarcazione tipica degli abitanti della Florida e mostri marini contribuiscono ad aumentare l'aspeto decorativo ed allo stesso tempo veicolano curiose informazioni. Al verso testo latino e l'indicazione "Ssss", che in accordo con Koemann, permette di datare la carta al 1636 o 1638. Coloritura coeva. Qualche segno del tempo, ma nel complesso buon esemplare.

Selden argues that England's jurisdiction extends, in fact, to all waters surrounding the isles. "Like all the works of Selden, the book is of tremendous erudition....

        Manuscript copy of three works: 'Il Catholico di Stato' (1625), Intrichi del nostro tempo' (1635), and 'L'huomo del Papa & del Re' (dated here 1636).

      Italy 18th-cent. - MS, 4to., writing to 635 unnumbered pages (262; 108; 175). A clean manuscript written in a neat flowing hand. Light foxing, occasional blotching, ink cuts through paper in some places at title, in all nevertheless very good. Bound in contemporary vellum boards, label red morocco gilt, edges mottled blue (some worming at head and tail). An eighteenth-century Italian's manuscript copies of a controversial political pamphlet of the earlier seventeenth century, and two responses of the time. The revisiting of these texts in the Age of the Enlightenment suggests the interest of the arguments to the secular thought of the later age. The 'Catholico di Stato' was a defence of the religious accommodation and anti-Habsburg foreign policy of Louis XIII and his minister Cardinal Richelieu, against a party that took the opposite views citing religious justification. The author Jérémie Ferrier (1576-1626) was ex-professor of Calvinist theology at Nîmes and a Catholic convert. He was tasked to write the pamphlet by the cardinal. "Distinguant politique et Église, temporel et spirituel, Ferrier élabore sous l'influence de machiavélisme une théorie qui sépare strictement morale civile et principes religieux" (Franceschi). Juan Antonio de Vera Figueroa y Zuñiga, Conde de la Roca (1583-1658), the sometime ambassador to Savoy and Venice, wrote a response from a Habsburg perspective, while a pamphlet in support (and against the Conde) was written either by Bénigne Milletot, a counsellor to the king from Burgundy, or possibly the royal historiographer Jean Sirmond. The first and third were published both in French and Italian. Sylvio Hermann De Franceschi, 'La genèse Française du Catholicisme d'étate et son aboutissement au début du ministériat de Richelieu', Annuaire-Bulletin de la Société de l'histoire de France, (2001), pp. 19-63, see p. 30.

        Ioannis Wouweri Dies aestiva, sive De umbra paegnion. Una cum Iani Dousae F. in eandem declamatione. Editio postrema castigatior, & adjectionibus in fine locupletior.

      Oxford (Oxonii), Excudebat G. Turner Impensis Guilielmi Webb, 1636. 12mo. (XXVIII),156,(22 index),(2 blank) p. Later calf. 15 cm (Ref: ESTC S120326) (Details: Back with five raised bands, and elaborately gilt. Boards with blind double fillet borders) (Condition: Small pencil note on the front pastedown and the title) (Note: The German scholar Johann von Wowern, or Wower, or Wouwer, 1574/75-1612, son of a Dutch religious refugee, studied law at the university of Marburg, and went in 1593 to Leiden to continue his studies, especially classics, at the newly established university. There he stayed for five years and established relations with the Dutch scholars Meursius, Scriverius, Heinsius and Baudius, and also with Scaliger. The arch-enemy of Scaliger, Caspar Scioppius, suggested maliciously that Scaliger had entertained illicit sexual relations with Wower. Wower published an edition of Petronius' 'Satyricon' (Lugd. Bat. 1596), the recension of which 'contains enough felicitous emendations to earn him the kind of immortality reserved to the chosen few: a place in the apparatus of modern critical editions'. (L. Deitz, 'Ioannes Wower of Hamburg, Philologist and Polymath. A Preliminary Sketch of His Life and Works', Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes Vol. 58 (1995), p. 138) Wower furthermore published Apollinarius Sidonius' Opera (Lyon 1598, reissued 1617), a rather worthless and partly plagiarized edition; Firmius Maternus' 'De errore profanarum religionum' (Hamb. 1603, reissued 1645), which was to remain the standard text for more than two centuries; 'Octavius' of Minucius Felix, (Hamburg 1603); 'Ad Q. Septimii Florentis Tertulliani opera emendationes epidicticae' (Francof. 1603 & 1612); Apuleius' 'Opera' (Hamb. 1606). His 'Syntagma de graeca et latina Bibliorum interpretatione' and 'Epistolarum centuriae duae' were published posthumously (Hamb. 1618). In 1610 Wower published in Hamburg his 'Dies aestiva sive de umbra paegnion', or 'A Summer's Day, or: a playful Poem on Shade'. The 'Summer's Day' 'belongs to the genre of mock-serious encomia in which so many humanists excelled and of which Erasmus's 'Praise of Folly' is the best-known example. These learned disquisitions praising lice, fever, baldnes, the bull of Phalaris, or the 'ens rationis', indeed anything unhealthy, ridiculous, preposterous, or unintelligible, tend to be amusing only at surface level concealing as they do the bitter pill of the moralist. Wower's short praise of shade is no exception and his intricate definitions of shade in general and the species into which it divides are clearly surservient to another purpose, albeit not a particularly original one: 'In this life, we pursue less things themselves than their shadows and semblances. Therefore, I fancied a sustained stroll and an incursion into (the realm of) Shade to give it my most heartfelt embrace. Indeed ... everything that mortals pine for and strenuously seek is... changeable, deceptive, unstable and liable to vanish with the precipitate haste of a shadow; a wise man should not even wish for these things'. (Dies Aestiva, 1610, p. C2 recto) The theme is trite, but its exposition and variations show great literary skill and perfect mastery of the Latin language. For what it is worth, I would not hesitate to qualify the Paegnion as a little 'chef d'oeuvre' of its kind'. (Op. cit. p. 141) See for Wower also 'Wowern' in: 'Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie' 44 (1898), p. 220) The 'Dies Aestiva' was reissued in 1617 and 1636. § The last 33 p. contain 'Iani Dousae F. in Laudem Umbrae declamatio'. This piece was first published in Leiden in 1591, by Wower's friend, the Dutch humanist scholar Janus Dousa (1545-1604), together with a 'Carmen' on this same subject. The poem has been omitted in this 1636 edition) (Provenance: On the front pastedown in pencil: 'Peter v.

Or A briefe elaborate discourse, prooving Timothy to be no bishop (much lesse any sole, or diocæsan bishop) of Ephesus, nor Titus of Crete : and that the power of ordination, or imposition of hands, belongs jure divino to presbyters, as well as to bishops, and not to bishops onely. Wherein all objections and pretences to the contrary are fully answered; and the pretended superiority of bishops over other ministers and presbyters jure divino, (now much contended for) utterly subverted in a most perspicuous maner. By a wellwisher to Gods truth and people.

      Publisher and place of publication not given [Amsterdam : Printed by J.F. Stam] 1636 - 12mo (180mm X 145mm) tract bound as a hardcover with dark-brown cloth covered spine, leather corner tips, and beige boards. pp: 173, [2],[1 errata] - pagination error: p165 for p173. Signatures: A later state of STC 20476: A-T4, V2 (V3 through X4 cancelled by X-Y4 Z2) - new leaves possibly printed in London (STC). Head-pieces, ornate initial letters; printed margin text. Going by the 1819 date shown on watermark end-papers, binding is circa first quarter of 19th century, although front board has since been reattached very competently by combination of cloth spine covering and a discreet glued-paper inner hinge reinforcement. Provenance: bookplate of John William Whittaker to front paste-down, along with a previous owner name with 1857 date inked below - this name also inked to upper margin of first page of text; and armorial bookplate of William Allen Potter to ffep recto. Good condition. Sturdy binding with wear to fore-corners; front board reattachment very competently performed and holding very well - an inner hinge repair after front fly-leaf. All leaves secure, and although text-block is trimmed with upper and lower margins trimmed to 10mm and 15mm respectively to nearest line of text (all page no.s and next page first word tags not affected), fore-margins are still generous, Leaves are mostly clean and crease-free, but title page and last two leaves (p[173], [2], [1 errata]) are creased and age-dulled. Last two leaves also have their lower quarter sections missing or torn away affecting a few lines of text, while title-page also has a light water stain down one half, as well as a 35mm closed fore-edge tear. pp1-18 also have fore-edge closed tears (though not as large as the title page tear,) along with light water contact evidence to lower corner. p17/18 has a 65mm tear that cuts through text, and p158-172 have a discoloured patch to lower sections that progressively become larger towards the end leaves, though text remains clear through this. Overall a nicely preserved copy of this very scarce first edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This piece was first published in Leiden in 1591, by Wower's friend, the Dutch humanist scholar Janus Dousa (1545-1604), together with a 'Carmen' on this same subject.

        Traduccion latina que ha hecho el Doctor Señonqui en Lengua Castellana, de un tratado que compuso en Latina Guillermo Vandevoy. E. C. D. D.

      Impressa en Valanson (Madrid?), por Jacome Corifio, 1636. - in-4. 99ff. (dont 98 numérotés). (1f.blanc). Plein vélin souple de l'époque. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage curieux de Juan de Quiñones, magistrat madrilène de la cour de Philippe IV. Ce violent réquisitoire contre les Français est présenté sous la forme d'un traité historique qui disserte sur les mœurs françaises, les relations de l'Espagne et de la France depuis le 14e siècle, ainsi que sur la supposée alliance des Français avec les Turcs pendant le siècle d'or. C'est un livre obscur à plusieurs égards. D'une part, le lieu d'impression et le nom de l'imprimeur ne sont répertoriés nulle part et paraissent avoir été inventés. D'autre part, certaines sources attribuent l'ouvrage au médecin hollandais Guillaume Van Den Bossche, mais cette hypothèse semble être erronée et le nom de Vandevoy indiqué au titre paraît n'être qu'une fantaisie. L'ouvrage contient deux curieuses gravures à l'eau forte de Francisco Navarro, graveur espagnol au sujet duquel Bénézit indique qu'on connaît de lui "des planches d'armoiries parues en 1632 à Madrid et le titre pour un ouvrage militaire publié en 1642. Il a également gravé des titres pour divers ouvrages d'architecture et des portraits d'Horace, Perse et Juvénal". Juan de Quiñones a laissé plusieurs ouvrages remarquables, tous écrits en espagnol, parmi lesquels un traité sur les sauterelles (1620), un discours contre les gitans (1631), une relation des éruptions du Vésuve (1632) et un curieux traité de minéralogie sur le charbon (1634). Le présent volume est une véritable rareté. Nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire dans les collections américaines (à l'Hispanic Society of America de New York, cf. N.U.C.) et seulement deux exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (Biblioteca Nacional et Biblioteca de Oviedo). Très bon exemplaire dans son vélin d'origine. Palau, 245389.

Reliure moderne en vélin ancien, titre manuscrit au dos. Papier légèrement bruni, galerie de vers marginale sur une trentaine de feuillets, dont une dizaine réparés en marge intérieure, autrement bon exemplaire, avec le tampon ex-libris armorié de l"avocat Charles Henneguier (Montreuil, Pas de Calais 1811- Hazebrouck 1872) sur la page de titre. Précurseur du premier journal français (la Gazette de Théophraste Renaudot), le Mercure Français est une publication annuelle fondée par l"imprimeur Jean Richer. Relatant faits divers et nouvelles du monde entier, elle comptera au total 25 volumes, dont 20 publiés de 1611 à 1638 chez Richer avec une périodicité presque annuelle, et 5 publiés de manière aléatoire par Théophraste Renaudot jusqu"en 1648. Ce dix-neuvième tome, qui relate les faits marquants de l"année 1633, est particulièrement intéressant au chapitre du Canada. Il contient (pp. 771 à 802) la relation des évènements survenus en Nouvelle-France, et (pp. 802 à 867) la relation originale du dernier voyage de Champlain au Canada pour y prendre le poste de gouverneur, qu"il occupa jusqu"à sa mort en 1635. Ce récit détaillé, "relation d"une honneste personne qui fit le voyage avec luy", est d"un intérêt considérable sur le plan des coutumes indiennes et décrit par le menu les relations complexes entre les indiens Hurons alliés des Français, les Iroquois, et les vaisseaux anglais qui malgré les traités conclus tentent de gêner les établissements français.

Dritte Ausgabe der bedeutendsten Gegenschrift gegen Hugo Grotius und dessen Abhandlung über die Freiheit der Meere von 1609. Grotius' Schrift, verfasst im Auftrag der 1602 gegründeten niederländischen Ostindien-Kompagnie, richtete sich zwar primär gegen die spanisch-portugiesische Konkurrenz im Seehandel, erregte aber vor allem auch in England große Aufmerksamkeit und rief dort die Gegner des freien Seehandels auf den Plan. Seldens Schrift war bereits 1617 verfasst, aber erst 1635 veröffentlicht worden. Selden argumentierte für eine sehr weit gefasste nationale Hoheits-, Schutz- und Wirtschaftszone für die ungestörte Ausübung der Handels- und Fischereirechte rund um England. Die beiden Karten zeigen die westeuropäische Küste von Norwegen bis zur Biscaya mit den britischen Inseln sowie England bis zur Grenze nach Schottland. Der vorliegenden Ausgabe sind erstmals die beiden im Titel genannten Beigaben vorangestellt. Da sie ihrerseits die holländischen Handelsinteressen stützten, wurde der Verkauf der Ausgabe in England durch königliches Dekret verboten. - Ter Meulen/Diermanse, Écrits sur Grotius 57; vgl. Cat.

Rare fourth edition of a Dutch translation of the 1636 Amsterdam Pharmacopoea. Unlike the original Latin edition, the Dutch translation not only lists ingredients, but also provides recipes to prepare the medicines.

A list of medical titles printed and sold by the publisher appears on the final page.The original Latin Pharmacopoea Amstelredamensis, the first Dutch pharmacopoeia, with recipes for nearly 200 medicines, was compiled anonymously by Nicolaes Tulp (1593-1674) by order of the city of Amsterdam, to serve as an official legal standard for the correct preparation of numerous medicines. Several cities in the southern Low Countries and Germany, and even London, had produced pharmacopoeias before any Dutch city and Tulp based his on those published in Augsburg, Cologne and London, primarily on the 1622 edition of the Pharmacopoea Augustana (providing about 85% of the content), with some material from the 1627 Dispensatorium Coloniense and the 1627 edition of the Pharmacopoea Londinensis.Browned and spotted throughout, with a few small holes and with a large water stain in the lower margin.

      Artist: Janssonius Johann ca ; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca1636 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at centerfold; - size (in cm): 41 x 48; - description: Map shows the cities of Danzig, Marienburg and Elbing with the Baltic sea.; - vita of the artist: "Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        Machiavels Discourses. upon [sic] the first Decade of T. Livius

      London: by Thomas Paine for William Hills and Daniel Pakeman,, 1636. translated out of the Italian; With some marginall animadversions noting and taxing his errours. By E[dward]. D[acres]. Duodecimo (142 x 82 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked to style. With first and last blanks A1 and Ee12; sig. B1 cancelled, as usual, the correct text printed on preceding a11–12. Armorial bookplate of H. C. R. P. Combe. Light marginal dampstaining, paper flaw in blank lower outer corner of T1, small paper loss at fore-edge margin of 2B2 slightly entering rule border, a little tight in the gutter (seemingly inevitable in this book), a very good copy. First edition in English of Machiavelli's Discorsi sopra la prima deca di Tito Livio (1531). Machiavelli's works had been circulated in manuscript and widely discussed in England, but not published until the breakdown of press censorship in the period leading up to the Civil War. This edition was followed in 1640 by the same translator's version of The Prince. "Machiavelli founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind – it should be remembered that a parallel work to 'The Prince' was his historical essay on the first ten books of Livy" (PMM 63). STC notes two variants of the title, with no precedence between them: in the present variant, the word "animadversions" is printed in italic; in the other, it is printed in roman.

      Printed by William Iones for Iames Bowler 1636 - with additional engraved title-page (which extends the title further), engraved frontispiece, diagram on printed title, 2 woodcut plates, and 2 printed slips, 1 folding, bound in, numerous diagrams and illustrations in the text, some full-page, others nearly so, slightly browned, a few patches of minor staining, one leaf with 2 small holes, 1 in the fore-margin, 1 with minor loss to text, [xii], 78, [2], 79-113, 116-163, [1]; 266; 56, 59-64, 67-75, [1]; [114], 4to, contemporary calf, double blind fillets on sides, on the upper cover, at the outer upper corner there is a sequence of numbers from 1 to 10 blocked in blind, descending vertically, the sequence repeated half way through below (an unusual feature), repeated, one line only, on lower cover, rebacked, corners and edges repaired, fly-leaf at the end ruled in columns in red, small blue paper label inside front cover with a name scratched out, much later pencil annotations and workings in pencil in a few places. A good, large, complete copy of the second and best edition of Gunter's collected writings (called The Works in the third edition of 1653), edited by Samuel Foster, with additions, including a chapter on the mathematics of fortification, not published before. The volume is in four separately numbered parts, comprising the Booke of the Sector, Booke of Crosse-stafte, Use of the Canon and Table, and the Canon Triangulorum, the last with a separate title page. Waters says the Booke of the Sector 'must rank with Eden's translation of Cortes's Arte de Navegar and Wright's Certaine Errors as one of the three most important English books ever published for the improvement of navigation . . . [Gunter] opened up. . . an entirely new field, that of arithmetical navigation' (Art of Navigation, p. 359). And further, 'Gunter's exposition of finding a ship's position by calculation since it was eventually published to the world, must be classed as one of the most influential scientific works on navigation.' 'Easily the most substantial of Gunter's works was The Description and Use of the Sector, the Crosse-Staffe and other such Instruments (1623) which explained instruments which he had designed. Apart from the two mentioned in the title it also included an astronomical quadrant and a 'cross-bow'—an alternative to the backstaff used by sailors for solar altitude measurements. Although this instrument did not become popular the others all did, in one form or another. The Gunter sector was a much more complex instrument than Thomas Hood's. It allowed calculations involving square and cubic proportions, and carried various trigonometrical scales. Moreover it had a scale for use with Mercator's new projection of the sphere, making this projection more manageable for navigators who were only partially mathematically literate. The sector was sold as a navigational instrument throughout the seventeenth century and survived in cases of drawing instruments for nearly three hundred years. The most striking feature of the cross-staff, distancing it from other forms of this instrument, was the inclusion of logarithmic scales. This was the first version of a logarithmic rule, and it was from Gunter's work that logarithmic slide rules were developed, instruments that remained in use until the late twentieth century' (ODNB). A scarce book anyway, it is often found incomplete (e.g. the Macclesfield copy). The matter is not helped by the fugitive nature of the inserts (sometimes called plates, but really inserts), and the fact that one of the plates is a volvelle, intended to be cut out. For some reason, the additional engraved title is sometimes missing. Several of the text illustrations extend well beyond the boundary of the text, and are therefore liable to cropping. In this copy only one if these is touched, and that barely. (ESTC S103555; see Taylor p. 196)

        Naufragio da nao N. Senhora de Belem feyto na terra do Natal no Cabo de Boa Esperança,

      1636 - & varios sucessos que teve o Capitao Joseph de Cabreyra, que nella passou à India no anno de 1633. First edition. Small 4to. Very good in period style half calf. 69, [3]pp. Lisbon, Lourenco Craesbeeck Impressor d'El Rey, Rare. Joseph de Cabreyra was Admiral of the fleet while in command of Nossa Senhora de Belem which was wrecked off the coast of the Cape of Good Hope in 1635 returning to Portugal from India. Among the passsengers was Father Jerome Lobo, who had spent the previous nine years as a missionary in Abyssinia. He was to report on the collapse of the Ethiopian mission and the subsequent expulsion of the clergy. This account relates not only the disaster but his subsequent securing of provisions such as rice, biscuit and meat, as well as despatches from the King, from the wreck in heavy seas off the South African coast. They were advised by a previous survivor of a shipwreck of the dangers of travelling overland and so Cabrerya built two boats from material gathered on the shore. They sailed from the Natal coast in January 1636, rounding the Cape successfully before reaching Luanda in Angola two months later. The work was reproduced in the third volume of Gomes de Brito's collection of early shipwreck in 1735. This is the original edition with the licence leaf at the end. OCLC locates 7 copies. No copies of this work have appeared at auction in the past 30 years. Mendelssohn, p242; cf Howgego I, L138. [Attributes: First Edition]
