Item Description: Martino Nuti, Anversa, 1605. Volume in 8° legato in pergamena con alette, titolo calligrafico al dorso, al verso del primo piatto exlibris nobiliare incollato, sguardie, frontespizio con marca silografica (firma a pennino in parte abrasa), 35 carte di dedicatoria ed indici, 478 pp., bianca finale. Il magnifico resoconto del Maffei sulle Indie orientali in questa splendida edizione del primissimo seicento. L'opera comprendeva anche un volume di lettere CHE NON È PRESENTE, corollario alla relazione che è completa per se stessa. Discettare sulla Storia delle Indie è pleonastico, tanto essa è conosciuta ed apprezzata. Va detto che le edizioni d'alta epoca sono tutte ricercatissime e di difficoltoso reperimento. Per tale ragione la si propone seppur mancante del volume delle lettere che, si ribadisce, è un corollario all'opera. In ottimo stato, rarissime insignificanti mende d'uso ed arrossature, carta forte e frusciante, molto ben stampata ed impaginata, tagli colorati. Sempre disponibili all'acquisto del volume mancante.

On upper cover initials AEAH gilt at head ‘1611’ at foot, remains of ties. The best and most complete Latin edition of this classic history of the Indies edited by Maffei and now including first hand materials in the form of letters from the Jesuit missions, particularly in the far East. The first half of the vol, approximately, comprises the story of European voyages, discovery and settlement in the East Indies, whilst the rest deals mainly with India proper, China and especially Japan. The second half is mostly translated or edited by Maffei,though some by the Scottish Jesuit John Hay of Dalgety, but apart from a short geography by Acosta the authors are the missionaries themselves. The work also includes an account of Ignacio Azevedo and the Brazilian martyrs. This edition probably comprises the most comprehensive work on the society, customs, language and beliefs of the Japanese, and the history of their dealings with the western barbarians, which had yet appeared in Europe. It is testimony to the enormous interest the work aroused that it was still being reprinted into the early C.19. According to JFB cat. John Hays' De Rebus Japonicus is often lacking, as is Maffei’s important life of the Society’s great founder. Prelinger was an C18 German theologian, doctor of divinity and author, sadly AEAH remains unidentified. The thick soft deerskin and binding decoration point to a Polish-Lithuanian origin.

Historiarum Indicarum Libri XVI.Antwerp, Martinus Nutius, 1605.With: MAFFEI, Giovanni Pietro.

Item Description: Ad 1: Alt-Japan-Katalog 916; Borba de Moraes, p. 509; Cordier, Japonica, col. 64; Lach I, pp. 325-326; Sabin 43773; ad 2: De Backer & Sommervogel V, col. 296. Early 17th-century edition of a classic work on "the Indies", including both the West and East Indies, considered the best (Sabin) and the most complete (Borba de Moraes) of the many Latin editions. Most of Maffei's work is concerned with the Portuguese conquests and the Jesuit stations in India, the East Indies, and regions around the Arabian Sea to about 1557. The first 5 books appear to follow rather closely the model of Barros. Book VI, dealing with China and book XII, which is mainly concerned with Japan, are heavily indebted to Valignano's account of those countries. The second part includes a selection of Jesuit letters written from the Indies and translated by Maffei.It is bound with Maffei's renowed life of Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.Several owners' entries on title-page of first work, some browning, new endpapers, binding slightly dirty, otherwise in good condition.

Historiarum Indicarum libri XVI. Selectarum, item, ex: MAFFEI, Giovanni Pietro.

Item Description: Borba de Moraes, p. 508; Cordier, Japonica, col. 63; Sabin 43771. Second Cologne edition of a classic work on "the Indies", including both the West and East Indies. This important account of Portuguese discoveries and missionary work covers India, the East Indies, Persia, Japan, China, Brazil and other parts of America, and was written by the humanist and Jesuit Giovanni Pietro Maffei (1533?-1603). The first edition was published in 1588 in Florence, and the first Cologne edition appeared in 1589. Maffei's history almost immediately became very popular as it hit the market when curiosity about the Far East was at its height, and was repeatedly published in Latin and translated into Italian and French. Besides providing a systematic history of the missions, Maffei's work laid to rest many of the accusations that were then being made about the falsities and exaggerations being spread by the published letters.With a woodcut armorial bookplate on pastedown and some owners inscriptions on title-page. Some minor browning throughout and there were labels attached to parts two and three (one torn out), resulting in some minor stains in the margins of the facing leaves. A very good copy. Binding slightly soiled and with a couple minor restorations, but otherwise good. Bookseller Inventory # HAG9DO1Z1C78
