        Littere clare memo. Ludovici XI. Franco[rum] Regis Christianissimi super abrogatione Pragmatice sanctionis in quarta Sessione Sacro sancti Lateranen. Concilii publice lecte et recitate.

      [Rom, Marcello Silber, 1512].. 4 unnum. Bll. (d. l. w.). Geheftet. 4to.. Sendschrift des französischen Königs Ludwig XI. an Papst Pius II. vom 27. November 1461, hier neu aufgelegt im Rahmen der 5. Lateransynode, die Papst Julius II. 1512 gegen das antipäpstliche Konzil von Pisa einberief. Das Laterankonzil verwarf unter anderem die 1438 unterzeichnete Pragmatische Sanktion von Bourges, die auf eine französische Nationalkirche abgezielt hatte. Trotz Ludwigs hier vorliegender Versicherung, er habe die Pragmatische Sanktion "im ganzen Reich und in der Dauphine" abrogiert, blieb sie dem Geiste nach in Kraft; 1463 und 1464 erließ er "eine Reihe von Ordonanzen 'zur Abwehr der röm. Übergriffe u. Herstellung der alten gallikan. Freiheiten'. 1567 hob er sie abermals auf, fuhr aber fort, ganz im Sinne der Pragmatischen Sanktion zu handeln" (LThK VIII, 425). Nachdem die Bischofsversammlung zu Rom 1510 auf Wunsch Ludwigs XII. erklärte, man habe sich an die Pragmatische Sanktion zu halten, verwarf das 5. Laterankonzil dieselbe endgültig; 1516 wurde sie von Franz I. durch das Konkordat ersetzt. Der vorliegende, vom Vatikan veranstaltete Druck von Ludwigs Abrogationsschrift sollte wohl die französische Kirche an gegebene Zusagen erinnern und die Grundlage für eine Lösung des Streits im Sinne Roms bereiten. - Am Schluß mit Kollationsbestätigung von Johannes Gerones, Notar der Apostolischen Kammer; darunter Nachdruckverbot von Balthasar Tuerdus. - Kl. Braunfleck am Titel. Fast unmerkliche Spuren früherer Faltung; letztes Bl. v. a. verso etwas gebräunt bzw. braun- und fingerfleckig. - Adams L 670. Edit 15, CNCE 31026. Nicht bei BM-STC Italian.

      Sans lieu ni date (c. 1512). - in-4. 30ff. ch. Cartonnage moderne. Edition rarissime, peut-être la première, du premier ouvrage du mathématicien et théologien flamand Josse Clichtove, né à Neuport en 1477, mort à Chartres en 1543. Il fit ses études à Paris sous Lefèvre d'Etaples, enseigna la philosophie et fut nommé ensuite chanoine théologal à Chartres. Il fut un des premiers à combattre les idées de Luther dans des "ouvrages remarquables par l'érudition, par le style et par la modération du langage" (Larousse). Ce traité de morale contenant les règles d'une vie droite et honnête, fut publié pour la première fois par Henri Estienne en 1512 et réimprimé plusieurs fois. Une traduction en Français parut en 1533 et une autre en 1761. La présente édition ne semble pas connue. Elle ne porte pas de date, de lieu ni de nom d'imprimeur mais est proche (même nombre de feuillets) d'une édition conservée à la Bibliothèque Nationale imprimée par Jehan Frellon sans date (vers 1512).

        Sicilae Regnum

      Amsterdam: Jocus Hondius. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13.25" x 18 7/8". Great map of Sicily. Nicely detailed geographic features, particularly in the erupting Mount Aetna. French text on verso. Full original margins, minor aging along edges. Tear to right margin and bottom edge. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

        Orbis Terrae Novissima Descriptio

      Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) / Jodocus Hondius (1563-1612)Orbis Terrae Novissima DescriptioAmsterdam: 1633 (third state)Hand-colored copperplate engraving29 ½" x 35 ¾" framedFor nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the story of modern mapmaking, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with forms of map projection still in use today. His influence transformed land surveying and his research and calculations lead him to break away from Ptolemy&rsquo;s conception of the size and outline of the continents, developing a projection that drastically reduced the longitudinal length of Europe and Asia and altered the shape of the Old World as visualized in the early 16th century. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, Mercator was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearing could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing seamen with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. Mercator&rsquo;s innovations, including the aptly named Mercator projection, continue to be employed in maps produced today, 400 years later.     The geographer died in 1594 after publishing just a few parts of the atlas that he had spent decades preparing. In 1604, after the death of Gerard&rsquo;s son Rumold, the plates for his maps were sold to the great Amsterdam cartographer, Jodocus Hondius, who brought out the first of the so-called &ldquo;Mercator-Hondius&rdquo; editions in 1606. Hondius continued to augment and perfect the atlas over the following years, constantly adding new maps and incorporating new discoveries and corrections. Unlike the work of Abraham Ortelius, a contemporary (and equally celebrated) cartographer, Mercator&rsquo;s maps were original. Ortelius engaged in the reduction and generalization of already existing maps, while Mercator, with his sense that scientific work should be original and new, checked the current knowledge of the earth&rsquo;s topography against its fundamental sources and drew maps in an original manner. Mercator was the most skilled mapmaker of his time, spearheading the Golden Age of Dutch cartography. This rare double hemisphere map of the world, originally published in 1602, was one of two maps by Gerard Mercator engraved by Jean le Clerc for the publisher Jodocus Hondius. Hondius made editions and edits to Mercators map, such as including the Islands of Queen Elizabeth off the tip of South America and erasing most of the coastline between South America and new Guinea. Hondius went to great effort to include a beautiful and informative frame to the map: Hondius&rsquo; favorite quote from the Psalms runs along the bottom, in the top corners are circles showing the wind names in Dutch and Italian, the lower corners have diagrams showing the phases of the moon and climate, and the center top and bottom are balanced by a pretty compass rose and astronomical sphere.Mercator&rsquo;s maps were unsurpassed in terms of accuracy, and no less attention was given to their beauty. This beautifully-colored double hemisphere map of the world represents a great opportunity to acquire the most spectacular map from this landmark publication by the foremost cartographer in history.  Reference: Shirley, The Mapping of the World

        PETRUS JORDAN Lectori S.D. en tibi nunc iterum candide lector Coelestium rerum disciplinae, atque totius sphaericae peritissimi, Johannis Stoeflerini . . .uariorum astrolabiorum compositionem seu fabricam, mecmpm eprimde, isii, ac uariarum utilitatum explanationem, ... typis nostris cudenda praesumpsimus ... redigenda, atq[ue] imprimenda curauimus

      Complete with all of the woodcut plates of astrolabes (with extended folding parts), text illustrations and diagrams, many full-page, and 2 folding. Wonderful printer&#39;s device on title and full-page device on the final colophon leaf. Early vellum-backed paste boards; interior very clean, probably washed; small discoloration on title and marginal wormholes on a few leaves. Some contemporary annotations, from the library of Owen Gingerich, with his bookplate. The work was originally printed in 1512/13 under the title Elucidatio fabricae ususque astrola. . . The present edition is probably the third printing, but published for the first time by Peter Jordan who had just established his workshop in Mainz. Stoeffler&#39;s treatise on the construction and use of the astrolabe was the most influential in the Renaissance. It was reprinted sixteen times and virtually every treatise on the astrolabe since has referenced it. The success of this work stems from the fact that it is clear, concise and complete, and that it required only a modest background to understand. There are detailed instructions on how to lay out the components of a planispheric astrolabe and how to use it for common problems, such as measuring the depth of a tank buried underground. Wonderful illustrations depict how to use astrolabes to solve different mathematical and other problems. The second part contains treatises on sundials, on geometrical measuring of altitudes, plane surfaces and depths, and well as chapters on horoscope casting and prognostics.& & Stoeffler (1452-1531), mathematician, astronomer and cosmographer, and professor of astronomy at Tübingen, was the teacher of Melanchthon, Schoener, and Sebastian Muenster. His calendars, almanack and astronomical tables enjoyed a great reputation throughout Europe for half a century. He was especially known for this work on the astrolabe and was considered "a leading authority on the methods of defining latitude and longitude in vogue at the beginning of the new era" (Sabin).&
