item 36246 INNOCENTIUS Papa XI - Johannes Walter Sluse ( SLUSIUS ) - Amadeo GUIMENIO - Francisco de MOYA - 1680 -IX - 16 Innocentius Papa XI. ad perpetuam memoriam. (text incipit . Cum (sicut accepimus) liber quidam, cui titulus. Adversus quorumdam expostulationes contra nonnullas Jesuitarum opiniones morales...). Romae (Roma), Ex Typographia Reverendae Camerae Apostolicae, 1680, one leaf imprint, broadsheet, 41 x 32 cm, with papal coat of arms in woodcut and two other woodcut vignests (saints). With a signed manuscript note stating that this imprint was collated against the original on November 13, 1680 by (Sigliaveli ?). Extremely rare official papal printed order to put a publication on the Index of forbidden books. The work was a publication by Amadeo Guimenio ; '' Adversus quorumdam expostulationes contra nonnullas Jesuitarum opiniones morales''. Amadeo Guimenio (real name Mateo de Moya) (Toledo 1626 - Madrid 1684) was a jesuit theologian. In his publication he maintained that many of the controversial religious ideas advocated by the Jesuits could in fact be traced back to theologians who had lived long before the Jesuit order existed. Already in 1665 the Sorbonne had censored this book. A huge controversy continued until this document finally prohibited the text in 1680. (See at length De Backer-Sommervogel Vol V col. 1349-1353);

item 11678 NATALIS Hieronymus - Jérôme NADAL - Jan WIERICX - Antoon WIERICX - Hieronymus WIERICX - Adriaen COLLAERT - Karel de MALLERY (engravers) - Bernardus PASSARO (designer) Evangelicae Historiae Imagines. Ex ordine Evangeliorum, quae toto anno in Missae Sacreficio Leguntur, in ordinem temporis vitae Christi digestae. (Suite of 154 engravings, modern impressions). Antverpiae (Antwerpen), excudebat Ioannes Galleus, 1647, suite of 154 engravings, modern impressions on thick japan paper. The first edition of these illustrations, a real masterpiece of Flemish bookillustration in the 16th century, appeared anonymously in Antwerp in 1593. An explanatory text with the plates was edited in 1594 (1595) by M.Nutius in Antwerp. Antoon Wiericx engraved 58 plates, 57 were done by Hieronymus Wiericx, 17 by Jan Wiericx , 11 by Adriaen Collaert, 9 by Karel de Mallery, 1 by Jan Collaert and 1 by the unkown engraver I.N. The drawings were made by the Roman draughtsman B.Passaro and are preserved in the Brussels Royal Library. In 1599 the plates were used for an edition of ''Meditationes Sopra Evangelii'' by A. Vivaldi. In 1607, after Jan Moretus had bought the plates from Scribanus, another edition was issued, as in 1647 (hence our frontispiece). A last record of the use of the plates is mentioned by A.Delen (Histoire de la Gravure..); ''Verdussen used 73 plates to illustrate a book by Maria Jesus de Agreda which was called Mystica Ciudad de Dios (editions in 1708, 1722, 1736, 1755)''. Finally the plates became the property of the Cistercian abbey at Westmalle (near Antwerp). Added is a typescript copy of a letter by M.Sabbe, former curator of the Museum Plantin-Moretus, dated June 17 1935, adressed to the Westmalle Abbey, in which he explains to the friars the history of their valued collection of the original plates. Added to this letter is a lenghty study on their history with transcriptions of articles by Rooses (Oud Holland), Delen, letters from 16th century jesuits, Goltzius etc...Presumably our impression of the plates was made around this date. One could deduce from the complicated history as sketched above that the plates must by now be fairly used and worn but this is not the case; the impressions are good and strong and still convey the superb mastery of the Wiericx brothers.

item 31366 ORLEANS Pierre Joseph d' - Pierre COTON La vie du Père Pierre Coton, de la compagnie de Jesus ; confesseur des Roys Henry IV et Louis XIII par le Père Pierre Joseph D'Orleans de la mesme Compagnie. Paris, chez Estienne Michallet, 1688, in-4°, 25,5 x 19 cm, title with engraved vignette + (10)nn pp + 361 pp, first page with a small portrait vignette , signed C. Vermeulen. Bound in contemporary vull leather, raised gilt spine, binding with some wear; headcaps gone, corners worn, title page a bit soiled and with 4 circular library stamps in blue ink. The celebrated French jesuit Pierre Coton (1564 - 1626) made friendship with king Henry IV and became also confessor to Louis XIII. His enemies tried to make him suspicious at the court for upholding the doctrine of regicide and for being involved with Ravaillac. They could never substantiate this. He remained confessor to Louis XIII until 1617. It seems he gained his influence by the sublime manner in which he preached.

Lisbone ( Lisboa ) , chez François-Louis Ameno , 1761 - 1766, 7 vols in-4°, 25 x 19,5 cm (format of vol. I) ; 27 x 21 cm (format of other vols). Ex-library copy with some stamps , uncut copies, some pages a bit browned , a few pages with waterstains. Bound in half cloth with marbled boards, a rather shabby set. The entire edition should contain 9 engravings. In our copy 5 are missing ( mostly portraits). The map of Malabar and Coromandel is present. This is a rare book containing a vicious attack on the Jesuit order and especially their missiological activities. The first two volumes deal with exclusively with the Jesuit Mission in Malabar. The third volume expounds on the animosity between Jesuits and Capuchins. The author was a capuchin and in this volume he declares to have changed his name for fear of being murdered by the Jesuits . Volumes IV treats the '' Malabar Rite''. Volume V describes the ''rebellion'' of the Jesuits against Pope Benedict XIV. At the end of this volume and continued in volume VI and VII are published the letters by the Jesuits written from their Missions in China, Japan and India in which they respond to the accusations and in which they defend their policies regarding their missiological enterprises. Almost all the letters are in Latin but a French or Italian translation is provided for in the text. The author ends his work with the wish that a papal bull might abolish the Jesuit order. In 1773 his wish was fullfilled and this book played certainly a large part herein.

This is the first bibliography of Jesuit writings by one of its founders. Ribadeneira (Toledo 1526 - 1611) entered the Society of Jesus on Sept. 18th 1540, at the age of fourteen and eight days before the approval of the order by Pope Paul III. This Lyons' edition is the second edition, as stated on the title. According the bibliography of De Backer-Sommervogel (Volume VI, col. 1754, item 13) there was an edition of 1602 (but De Backer never saw this edition). In 1608 Plantin-Moretus published an edition. It might be assumed that our edition is named second edition in reference to this Plantin-Moretus edition especially if we consider the author's preface which is dated November 1605 and the dedication to the Antwerp bishop Torrentius. The author lists not only the publications of his Jesuit collegues but gives also biographical details. At the end is a detailed list of all the Jesuit colleges around the world. E.g. in Japan there are 154 jesuits divided over 12 colleges.
