         Novae Methodi Pro Explanandis Hippocrate et Aristotele specimen, Clarissimis Scholae Parisiensis Medicis, D.D.

      Parisiis, Apud P. Rocolet Typographum Regium in Palatio, 1665. - 3 parties en 1 volume in-8. 14ff. 158pp. 71pp. (i.e. 69) 3ff. 43pp. 1f. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné, étiquette imprimée (reliure frottée). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage dans lequel le médecin et physicien Marin Cureau de Lachambre (1596-1669) proposait l'ébauche d'une nouvelle lecture d'Hippocrate et d'Aristote. C'est le seul livre de l'auteur paru en latin, peut-être parce qu'il fut publié en hommage à la Faculté de Médecine de Paris. La dernière partie, avec titre et pagination séparée, contient la première édition en français de la Physique d'Aristote, "la plus obscure et la plus subtile de toutes les pièces que l'Antiquité nous a laissées". Cette œuvre de jeunesse que l'auteur avait entreprise à l'invitation du chancelier Séguier, était restée inédite et Cureau expose, dans un long avertissement au lecteur, l'histoire de cette traduction ainsi que les écueils rencontrés dans son travail. Exemplaire un peu court de marges. Reliure frottée. Bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Real Grandeza de la Serenissima Republica de Genova traducida en lengua italiana por Carlo Esperon [scritta in lingua spagnola e poi aggionta e tradotta da C. Sperone]

      - Madrid, por Ioseph Fernandez de Buendia el Ano 1665 (in Genova, per Gio: Battista Tiboldi, 1669). In folio (182x118 mm.), cc. (9) + antiporta, pp. 351, (1). Elegante antiporta allegorica incisa in rame, nota di posesso al frontespizio "Peragallo, Lisbona 1884". Elegante legatura in mezza pelle, fregi e 2 tasselli al dorso. Testo in italiano e spagnolo. Esemplare molto bello, freschissimo e ottimamente impresso su carta forte, completo dell'antiporta allegorica di grandiosa fattura inciso da Marcus Orozco (mancante a quasi tutti gli esemplari), e appartenuto al celebre americanista genovese Prospero Peragallo. Molto probabilmente è questa la prima ed unica edizione. Infatti, benché i dati editoriali e la premessa indichino una precedente edizione madrilena in idioma spagnolo (che l'autore stesso sostiene essergli stata cagione di "gran borrasche") e benché il Soprani (Scrittori della Liguria, p. 69) la menzioni già nel 1667, senza averla mai veduta, col titolo castigliano di "Honores Regios merecidos della Serenissima Republica di Genova", si segnala che non risultano essere state mai censite copie di questi fogli madrileni e lo stesso Palau, riferendo che "desconocemos la edicion de Madrid que hace suponer la portada descrita", lascia alludere che ci si possa ritrovare di fronte a una falsa indicazione (non risultando per di più credibile che un'opera prodotta per "ubbidire a un gran ministro della Corona di Spagna" possa rappresentare argomentazioni anche solo prudentemente contrastanti con gli interessi di quella corona medesima). I propositi encomiastici del lavoro dello Speroni ci vengono premessi già col disegno dell'elegante antiporta: l'allegoria di Genova, trainata da grifoni, sovrastata dalla "Fama" e con la città racchiusa tra i monti magnificamente intagliata sullo sfondo, cavalca i due emisferi dell'antico e del nuovo mondo ornati dal motto "unus non sufficit orbis" e tagliati dalla scritta "auspice Columbo". Ai Genovesi, dunque, si deve la duplicazione del mondo così come a Genova è d'obbligo il riconoscimento dei cosiddetti "onori regali" (che comportavano l'assentimento circa il suo dominio assoluto sul mare Tirreno). Al fine di raggiungere lo scopo prefissato nella sua opera, lo Speroni "si era messo a ricercare dentro le storie di ogni paese e - cosa notevolissima in quel tempo - negli archivi patrii i documenti di quella grandezza. Ed era riuscito, a detta del Lopez, il primo storico dell'impero coloniale genovese: il primo e, per almeno due secoli, l'unico" (cfr. S. Rotta, Genova e il Re Sole, in "El siglo de los genoveses", a cura di P. Boccardo e C. di Fabio, Milano, Electa, 1999, pp. 286-291). Bibliogr. Palau, 104625. Soprani, Scrittori, pp.68-69.

Dimensions du volume : 135 x 85 mm. Reliure de l'époque plein vélin à coutures apparentes (reliure hollandaise). Titre à l'encre au dos (bien conservé). Bel exemplaire au vélin très frais (à noter un petit trou dans le secon plat, sans gravité). Intérieur très frais. Petit manque angulaire à un feuillet du premier ouvrage, sans atteinte au texte. Quelques passages soulignés à l'encre verte ou rouge, dans le premier ouvrage seulement. Le premier ouvrage est de Jan Jonston (1603-1675), scientifique né en Pologne ayant migré en Ecosse en 1622. Il est connu pour ses différents ouvrages sur l'Histoire Naturelle. Sa Thaumatographia Naturalis (ou description des merveilles de la nature) a paru pour la première fois en 1632. Outre l'aspect scientifique on trouve dans ce recueil sur les animaux, les plantes, les météores, les fossiles, les oiseaux, etc., nombre d'anecdotes curieuses et étranges. Johnston évoque le somnambulisme. Il rapporte ainsi qu’un jeune homme sortait toutes les nuits de son lit, vêtu seulement de sa chemise ; puis montant sur la fenêtre de sa chambre, il sautait à cheval sur le mur et le talonnait pour accélérer la course qu’il croyait faire. Un autre descendit dans un puits et s’éveilla aussitôt que son pied eut touché l’eau, qui était très-froide. Un autre monta sur une tour, enleva un nid d’oiseaux et se glissa à terre par une corde, sans s’éveiller. Un Parisien, de même endormi, se leva, prit son épée, traversa la Seine à la nage, tua un homme que, la veille, il s’était proposé d’assassiner ; et, après qu’il eut consommé son crime, il repassa la rivière, retourna à sa maison et se mit au lit sans s’éveiller. (cité par Colin de Plancy dans son Dictionnaire infernal). on y lit nombre de superstitions et croyances anciennes sur les propriétés des plantes notamment. A propos de la bétoine (Stachys officinalis) par exemple Johnston dit que non seulement elle éloigne tout ce qui est redoutable, mais qu’elle a la propriété de faire sortir tous les os cassés. Cet ouvrage est un excellent compendium des connaissances dans le domaine pour l'époque. Il a été réimprimé de nombreuses fois. Cette édition de Leyde est une très jolie édition en petits caractères, très bien imprimée. Références : « A treatise on natural wonders, divided into ten categories : the new stars, the elements, meteors, minerals, plants, birds, quadrupeds, insects and other ‘bloodless’ animals, fish, and men.» (Norman 1177) ; Garrisson Morton, 287. Le second ouvrage contenu dans ce volume est l'oeuvre d'un inconnu. La première édition date de 1597 (sous un titre légèrement différent) et seule l'épître dédicatoire est signée Henningus Grosius Bibliopol. ce qui a fait croire que l'ouvrage était entièrement de lui (il a découvert et publié le manuscrit). On trouve au début du volume un catalogue des auteurs cités tout au long, depuis les auteurs de l'antiquité jusqu'à ceux de la Renaisance. Ce sont plus de 900 petites histoires de spectres et de revenants. Il n'existe pas d'édition en français de ce volume. Le titre-frontispice à l'eau-forte est très joli et montre une sorcière et son chaudron, entourée de diables et de spectres ailés.

This is only the second translation of the BCP into Greek, following the first by Elias Petley in 1638. There were apparently two settings of this edition produced by printer John Field in the same year, under the same title and imprint, with priority not established; the present example has line six of the main title-page all in capital letters, and the "Alma mater Cantabrigia" device following the last page of the Psalter — but while the sun is on the left and the cup on the right of the Psalter title-page device, they are reversed on the New Testament title-page, apparently indicating that the New Testament is from a variant post-dating the BCP and Psalter.    Binding: Contemporary mottled calf Cambridge-style, covers framed in double gilt fillets and panelled in triple gilt fillets with gilt-tooled corner fleurons; spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt-ruled compartments.    Provenance: Front free endpaper with early inscription in red pencil: "Gibson's [/] Queens [/] Oxon.

         1665 Sermons of Byzantine Orthodox Saint John Chrysostom Constantinople 3v SET

      Paris : Chez Pierre Le Petit, 1665. - 1665 Sermons of Byzantine Orthodox Saint John Chrysostom Constantinople 3v SET “Happiness can only be achieved by looking inward & learning to enjoy whatever life has and this requires transforming greed into gratitude.” John Chrysostom A rare 17th-century printing of John Chrysostom’s sermons and homilies. Chrysostom was one of the most important Early Christian Church authors and preachers and is most remembered for his sermons and homilies. He preached on many different subjects, but his most frequented topic was helping the needy. Chrysostom calls for followers of Jesus to set aside their material desires to help the poor, often in a way that shamed the rich and guilted them in to giving. “Do you pay such honor to your excrements as to receive them into a silver chamber-pot when another man made in the image of God is perishing in the cold?” (Chrysostom in Liebeschuetz) This three-volume edition was edited and translated by Isaac Lemaistre de Sacy.

         L'AMBASSADE DE LA COMPAGNIE ORIENTALE DES PROVINCES UNIES VERS L'EMPEREUR DE LA

      - Leyde 1665, Meurs. Old velum, gold stamped, very good, few marginal tears neatly repaired, 2 parts in 1, 35 double page & 109 half page engravings, 134p., plate list, tall folio 24 x 38 cm., usual binding wear, spine cracks but solid.RARE A beautiful early work, magnificently illustrated, nearly 150 plates & engravings with extensive description of China. Nieuhoff was the chronicler and draftsman for the first Dut- ch Embassy there. In the mid-17th century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and wanted to gain trade access in the China Trade. In the face of great opposition they succe- eded in sending merchants to Canton. Nieuhoff made drawings during his travel to Canton & Peking, and were used to make the first engravings of China to be published in England. This work is the record of the Dutch Embassy's efforts in China. These efforts were thwarted by Portuguese Jesuit inrigues. * THE FIRST FRENCH EDITION: This First French edition consists of 290 pages of main text followed by: AVIS AUX CURIEUX. Copie d'une lettre ecrite en Batavie par NN. a Mr. N. Marchand de la ville d'Amfterdam, en date u 2. Feverier 1659, pp. 289-290. New pagination continues in the Seconde Partie: from page 1-134, with title: DESCRIPTION GENERALE DE L'EMPRIE DE LA CHINE. This is followed by a list of plates in parts I and II. * The illustrations depict all of the major cities,the flora and fauna, manners, dress & curiosities of China. With a beautiful and original folding map of China by Nieuhoff. A rich primary source for early meetings between the East and West. * The work and its map were done by Nieuhoff, then copper engraved by Hollar. The count of plates differ between the various editions. There are various ways to count the plates, there is no standard, we count them as 'full page' and as 'text plates' which seems logical. Some 'full page' plates actually have two illustrations on them. The actual location of some of the full-page plates will also vary, according to the "list of plates" issued with this book. This is entirely normal. *** This early account of China covers a wide variety of subjects including a large section on newly discovered plants, herbs and fruits of South China. It begins with a double page copper etched map of all China, Corea, part of Japan, Formosa, South to the Kingdom of Cannan [Annam or Viet-nam], Tartary. It includes and shows the outlined provinces with rivers noted, and the small cities along the great rivers; lakes, animals, flora and fauna. Additionally covers landscapes, views of villages, temples, people &c. * THE TEXT & COPPER-ETCHED PLATES: Major cities such as Canton, Nan-an, Kan-Chou, Nanking, Kiu Kiang, An King, Wuhu, Yang Chow are nicely illustrated and described. Peking also are carefully described and noted, with key & distance chart of miles. A meticulous description of the people, laws, customs, provinces given in much detail. The work is lavishly illustrated with fine examples. Each edition of this title had variant numbers of plates. These high-quality copper plates illustrate the manners, costume and customs of the Chinese. * This embassy was Europe's first attempt to open China to the west. A truly superb and marvelous primary resource. Stunning, documenting an important beginning in European contact and diplomatic history with China. Books of this period, size, and caliber have now become exceptionally scarce, and seldom found complete in excellent condition. * JAN NIEUHOFF [1618-1672] & THE DUTCH: Jan [John in English] Nieuhoff was the steward, chronicler and draftsman for the first Dutch embassy to China. In the mid-17 century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and decided to gain access to China and a share of the Chinese trade. After a great deal of Chinese opposition, the Dutch did manage to succeed in sending some merchants to test the trade waters of Canton. The drawings during Nieuhoff's travels of both Canton and Peking were also later used to produce the first engra

         The Travels of Sig. Pietro della Valle, a noble roman into East India and Arabia Deserta . Whereunto is added A Relation of Sir Thomas Roe's Voyage into the East-Indies.

      J. Macock, for John Martin and James Allestry, London 1665 - [4], 480 pp., imprimatur leaf facing title page, 3 engraved plates on two leaves, Lacking engraved map, woodcut illustrations and diagrams in text, early calf, rebacked with spine gilt in six compartments, lightly rubbed, occasional light damp staining, a few ink splash marks & spots, early ownership inscriptions of Robert Davies & John Chowler on title, (with authorship note for Roe’s "Voyages", ascribing it to Edward Terry), and that of Horace Bridges on fly leaf. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF THIS FASCINATING VIEW OF THE EAST AT THE HEIGHT OF THE MOGHUL EMPIRE, comprising the third part of the author's Viaggi . cioè la Turchia, la Persia, e l'India. The text comprises a series of fifty-four letters written to the physician Schipano of Naples during Valle’s extensive tour. "Disappointed in love and filled with a desire to see the world" (Penrose), Della Valle left Venice in 1614 on a pilgrimage to Palestine. From Sinai he proceeded to Damascus and Aleppo, then crossed Mesopotamia to Baghdad, thence into Persia where he married the Circassian Setti Manni, who accompanied Della Valle on his further travels. In Persia he spent some time at the court of Shah Abbas, but his wife died at Persepolis in 1623. His travels took him farther east to the coast of India as far as Calicut, and from Goa to Muscat, thence to Aleppo by way of Basra, finally reaching Rome in 1626. Della Valle’s personal wealth allowed him to travel and observe at will. His account includes detailed descriptions of music, dance and food, whereas Thomas Roe's account contains descriptions of his voyage, religion, society, customs and governance. Pietro Della Valle was one of the most remarkable travellers of the seventeenth century; he was also a leading figure in the cultural life of his age. Unlike most travellers of the time, he was motivated by ethnographical, linguistic and artistic matters, rather than trade, conquest or missionary zeal. He signs himself here as "il pellegrino" (the pilgrim), but in the largely secular sense of seeking to broaden his aristocratic classical education by embracing the civilizations of the East - including eventually an eighteen-year-old girl, whom he married in 1616 and whose death in childbirth in 1623 precipitated his return to Italy. Della Valle first traces his voyage from Rome to Constantinople via Ancona, Bologna, Ferrara and Venice across to observe the great ruins of Troy (".per dire meglio Campos ubi Troia fuit e vedute le gran ruine di quella famosa Città.") and the Hellespont, pointing out Abydos and Sestos, made famous by the tale of Hero & Leander. He arrived at Constantinople on 15 August 1614 and describes the opening of the Dardanelles at the Black Sea, and Scutari. He describes his voyages as well as the cities he visited, including travelling with camels, which he judges much slower and more troublesome than horses. There is a dramatic description of crossing the River Mehi in India, using elephants and local oxen, made difficult by the converging currents from the river and the sea-water. Elsewhere he reports cultural, linguistic and artistic curiosities of the places he visits, often sending back examples of his finds to Italy. Many are still conserved in museums in Rome and Dresden. Della Valle's travelogues were published through many editions and in different languages. The greatest numbers of letters are dated from Persia (n. 1-18), ten letters from Constantinople and four from India.

      Amsterdam, Baltes Boekholt (col.: Paulus Warnaer), 1665. Contemporary vellum, bumped and stained. Inside some minor stains. With an engraved frontispiece and 29 engraved plates.Titlepage and fist gathering worn at the edges, traces of use. Dutch translation of 'A relation of a journey' by George Sandys (1578-1644), one of the most famous travel books of the seventeenth century. Sandys travelled to the Levant in 1610 and spent a year in Turkey, Palestine and Egypt before returng to England to become a bishop. His observations first appeared in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. Between 1616 en 1673 another 6 English editions appeared. In 1653 the first edition of the Dutch translation was published in Amsterdam by Jacob Benjamin. The translation (by ‘J.G.’ ) has in the past erroneously been attributed to J. Glazemaker, but it was in fact made by the mennonite Amsterdam pharmacist Johannes Grindal (1616-1696), who translated more than 20 English books into Dutch. A second edition appeared in Utrecht by Lambert Roeck in 1654. The present copy belongs to the third and final edition, published by the Amsterdam bookseller Baltes Boekholt in 1665 (printed by Paulus Warnaer). B0113 The book is illustrated with an attractive frontispice that shows the religious nature of the book, with full figure portraits of Achmet and Iris with their attributes and with four symbolic medallions. This frontispice looks like the one of a London edition by R. Field in 1621, but is different in the details. Clearly this earlier English version was used as the example. Some of the plates inside this Dutch copy are different from the one from London and some are the same. There are different types of illustrations: some full page plates show historical and biblical scenes from the countries that Sandys visited, such as Chios and Turkey. There are also plates of city plans and noteworthy buildings such as the Temple in Jerusalem. All these plates do not appear in the London copy. From there on follow in-text topograpic plates that are oddly maneristic in the way the landscape and clouds are depicted. These are the same as the ones in London. More research is needed on the re-use of the plates between the Dutch and English edition and why some plates had to be replaced and others not.

         1665 Ralph Austen Treatise of Fruit-Trees Agriculture Devotional Wine Gardening

      Oxford : Printed by William Hall, for Amos Curteyne, 1665. Third edition, revised. - 1665 Ralph Austen Treatise of Fruit-Trees Agriculture Devotional Wine Gardening “The understanding which before was darke, and ignorant of spirituall things, then becomes enlightened and apprehensive of spirituall things.” Ralph Austen, Fruit-Trees A fascinating work by the gardener who popularized cider as a beverage! Ralph Austen was a 17th-century English writer on gardening who wrote ‘A Treatise on Fruit-Trees’, which discusses pruning, grafting, and other important aspects of growing fruit-bearing plants. While the majority of the work deals with agriculture and horticulture, there are spiritual themes such as the attributes of God in comparison to fruit trees. Some researches claim that this work was not as popular as similar titles because of the association of two varying topics. This work includes Austen’s ‘Observations on Francis Bacon’s “Naturall History as it concerns fruit-trees”’ or Sylva Sylvarum. It also includes recipes on making wines, ciders, and beers; how to properly grow apples, but also how to apply regeneration of seeds to the regeneration of the Christian heart into Christ.

He "...yearned for the intellectual delights of Rome, and after twenty-five years in Italy he suffered from German winters and had to have his own hypocaust installed...Exhausted, it is said, by overwork on his books, he died in 1666." DSB XII, p.211. "Steganography fallas into two branches, linguistic steganography and technical steganography. Only the first is closely related to cryptography. The technical aspect can be covered very quickly: invisible inks have been in use since Pliny's time. Onion juice and milk have proved popular and effective through the ages (turning brown under heat or ultraviolet light)." - Friedrich L. Bauer, Decrypted Secrets: Methods and Maxims of Cryptology, p.8. Provenance: Hedwig & Eberhard Frey. Eberhard Frey (1872-1963) was a German writer and art critic and a collector (and writer about) of bookplates. See: Richard Braungart, Deutsche Exlibris und Andrere Kleingraphik der Gegenwart.

      London (& Paris): et veneunt Parisiis, apud Fredericum Leonard, 1665.. Good+. 1665 & 1657. Full Leather. [24], 552, [24] p. pages; Lexicon Geographicum, in quo Universi Orbis Oppida, Urbes, Regiones, Provinciae, Regna ... Antiquis Recentibusque Nominibus appellata, suisque distantiis descripta recensentur ... Authore Fr. Philippo Ferrario ... Editio nova ... Adnectitur Tabula Longitudinis ac Latitudinis Urbium & Oppidorum per totum terrarum Orbem, ex ejusdem Philippi Ferrarii Epitome Geographica desumpta. Londini : et veneunt Parisiis, apud Fredericum Leonard, 1665. Contemporary full leather, (suede, or reversed calf), six raised bands on the spine, edges of the text decoratively sprinkled red. This binding shows considerable rubbing and scuffing, with most of the decorative stamping eroded from the spine (the author and title are stamped in gilt directly in the second panel, and this is now just legible), with rubbing and loss along portions of the hinges (particularly the rear), the lower headband is partly missing, and there are several scrapes and two loose strips of leather on the rear cover. Internally some scattered foxing and a small Jesuit library stamp no the title page (no other marks). A sound copy, complete. This is a geographical dictionary by Filippo Ferrari, who taught mathematics and astronomy at the University of Pavia. He published an early version of this major work in 1605 [Epitome Geographicum] but the full text was not published until the year after his death, in 1627 - [ Mediolani [Milan]: Apud I.I. Comum, 1627]. This particular edition was prepared in England by William Dillingham (1617?-1689), master of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. The first part of the text appears to be a reissue of the edition printed in London by Roger Daniel in 1657. There are separate title pages to part 2 (Lexici Geographici Pars altera) and the table of longitudes (Adnectitur Tabula Longitudinis ac Latitudinis Urbium & Oppidorum per totum terrarum Orbem). Both of these have the London imprint of Roger Daniel, 1557. The mention of London on the title page of this (partial?) 1665 edition is enough to earn a citation in Wing F 815 (British Library copy only). That British Library copy is the basis of a digital reproduction (see Yale, National Library of Australia, etc.) In the description accompanying this, it is stated that the BL copy is "Imperfect: tightly bound, stained and faded with slight loss of print." Our copy is nicer, (with two leaves showing a paper flaw at the top margin which does not affect the text block -- Fff 2&3). It is interesting that the collation of the first part in this 1665 version is identical to the 1657 edition produced by Daniel in London (right down to the mistaken duplication of the page numbers 150-1 on two consecutive pairs of pages). This was necessary to match up with the stock of Daniel's 1657 originial "Pars altera" which has pagination and signature marks continuous with the first part). In all, a sound and complete copy of a scarce geographical lexicon, in its original binding (which is worn, but quite serviceable). Roger Daniel is better known as a printer in Cambridge, but he certainly worked in London as well (where he is known to have printed a portion of the Shakespeare Third Folio). Collation: *4, **4, A-3Z4, &c.6, A-C4 - [C4 is blank]. [24], 552 ("150-1" repeated), [24, "Tabula Longitudinis"] & [2, blank] pp. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

         Caliope's cabinet opened. Wherein gentlemen may be informed how to adorn themselves for funerals, feastings, and other heroick meetings. Also here they may know their place and worth, with all the degrees and distinctions of honour in the realm: shewing how every one ought to take place, with the titles due to them; with other things of antiquity very observeable.

      London printed by G.M.* for Will. Crooke at the three bibles on Fleet-Bridge 1665 - 8vo., (4) + 66 + (2)pp., with 7 small woodcuts in the text, contemporary plain ruled sheep, head and foot of spine just a little worn else a very good crisp copy. First edition. A charming little book of etiquette dedicated by the author 'To the Worshipful Thomas Clifford, Esquire, and to the worshipful Henry Ford, Esquire, Justices of the Peace, for the County of Devon'. The author provides the reader with the rules of precedence of all and sundry from farm workers, and shopkeepers at the lowest level, through various ranks of craftsmen and the science-based professions (the Doctor of Physick, the orator, mathematician, geometrician, astronomer, musician and poet). There is a substantial section on funerals, including a table of what effectively were death duties, and also a useful index. The author seems to be otherwise unknown. * The printer, identified by Wing, was George Miller. [Attributes: First Edition]

Cuerpo desprendido; rotura con falta en lomo; algunas llamadas de atención manuscritas en los márgenes.- // Proc.: Exlibris manuscrito del convento de San Lorenzo de Velletri y un sello de tampón ilegible.- // Refs.: Caillet, III, 7203.- // Las primeras ediciones de este compendio de prácticas y normas para el ejercicio de su 'oficio' por los inquisidores, escrito por el inquisidor Eliseo Masini da Bologne, las imprimió en Génova Giuseppe Pavoni en 1621 y en 1625. Fallecido el autor en 1627, en Roma apareció en 1639, impresa por los herederos de Corbelletti, una edición ampliada, sin que se sepa quien fue el responsable de los cambios. Un dato relevante es que, a partir de esa edición, el Sacro arsenale comenzó a mencionar la Instrucción, que Roma venía difundidendo en secreto desde 1621, de evitar propasarse en los tormentos para estimular las confesiones en los procesos de brujería con el fin de evitar inculpaciones falsas. Una instrucción que tenía su origen último en la revisión que se hizo del célebre proceso de Logroño de 1612 y sus desmanes. Las novedades respecto a 1621 incluían que el repertorio de los 200 criterios que todo inquisidor debía tener en cuenta aumentó hasta alcanzar 300, y que las nueve partes originales de su obra aumentaron a 10 por la inserción de un breve capítulo sobre cómo proceder en los casos de poligamia.Catorce años después, en 1653, Sebastiano Zecchino volvió a imprimirlo en Génova, con el texto corregido y ampliado aún más, también de mano desconocida, aunque en esta ocasión se mencionaba haber tenido en cuenta las obras del laico Prospero Farinacci, de Antonio Santarelli, de Antonino Diana, de Cesar Carena, de Juan Bautista Larrea y de Filippo Pascale (este, en materia de patria potestad en el caso de los herejes), modificando y ampliando algunos pasajes. Esa versión ampliada impresa en 1653 fue la que volvió a imprimirse en 1665, en Bolonia, a instancias de Paolo Baglioni, curiosamente, en dos ediciones diferentes con el mismo pie de imprenta. Una, con una viñeta de iconografía jesuítica en portada, a la que corresponde este ejemplar, y otra donde la viñeta representa a la Trinidad. Compartiendo exactamente el mismo texto, la misma paginación y las mismas signaturas, son dos composiciones tipográficas diferentes para las que se emplean capitales y adornos tipográficos diferentes, y tipos también parcialmente diferentes. Ambas variantes de 1665 presentaban una novedad: se publicaron acompañadas de un apéndice, de autoría desconocida, con paginación y signaturas propias, que falta con mucha frecuencia, titulado Aggionte al sacro arsenale della Santa Inquisitione, en el que se recogen un listado de publicaciones prohibidas, el modo de expurgar los libros de oraciones y sucesivos decretos y constituciones referidos a las confesiones. A partir de esta, todas las ediciones posteriores del Sacro arsenale (1679, 1693, 1705.) mantendrán el Aggionte incorporado como última parte del libro. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Are to be sold by Roger Rea the Elder and younger at the Golden Crosse in Cornhill against the Exchange, [1665]., [London], - Rare Roger Rea edition of Speed's map of Bermuda Double-page engraved map, fine contemporary outline hand colour, upper left and right margin skilfully repaired, top margin trimmed to neatline. The map bears the imprint of Roger Rea the Elder and Younger. The Reas had purchased the rights to Speed's work from William Garrett in 1659, who had previously purchased them from the widow of William Humble in the same year. Skelton suggests that the father and son intended a new edition of the atlas for the Restoration of 1660. However, the atlas would appear not to have been published until 1665. This is borne out by an advertisement in the Term Catalogue by the subsequent owners of the plates, Thomas Bassett and Richard Chiswell, in 1675: "Mr John Speed's. Geography of the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland. together with his Prospect. all in one entire Volume, hath been, for seven Years past, out of Print, the greatest part of an Impression, then newly Printed, being destroyed by the late dreadful Fire, 1666". This is borne out by the rarity of the Rea edition of the atlas. There is evidence that they planned an edition of 1666, as there are impressions of Sussex, Buckingham and Derby, with Rea's imprint, which bear that date. Rea would later sell the plates to Bassett and Chiswell, who would publish a new edition in 1676.
