VAN DER STRAET, Jan.
[Antwerp: Philips Galle, late 16th century]. Pair of engravings by Hans Collaert after Van der Straet. Uncoloured. In gold leaf frames. Each size: 29.5 x 21.5 cm (11½ x 8½ ins). Framed sizes: 43 x 35cm. Fine condition. A superb pair of sixteenth-century engravings showing hunting and fishing scenes. The Flemish artist Jan van der Straet (1523-1605; otherwise known as Stradanus, or Giovanni Stradano) was born at Bruges and trained there and at Antwerp. He established himself in Florence about 1550. There he was employed as a designer of tapestries for the "Fabbrica degli Arazzi" which Cosimo de Medici had founded. Between 1550 and 1553 he executed works for the Vatican with the help of Francesco Salviati, who became a great influence on his style. He worked in Florence with Giorgio Vasari designing tapestries and frescoes depicting hunting scenes for Cosimo's villa at Poggio a Caiana near Florence.

Gerung, Christoph.
Ohne Ort und Drucker (Augsburg, Heinrich Steiner, 1523. 12 Bl. Mit vierteiliger Holzschnitt-Titelbordüre von Hans Weiditz. 4° (20 x 15 cm). Moderner Kleisterpapier-Umschlag. Einzige Ausgabe, erster von zwei Drucken mit minimalen typographischen Abweichungen. - Seltene reformatorische Schrift. Gerung war Prediger am Elisabethenkloster in Memmingen und ist dem Umfeld des Memminger Reformators Christoph Schappeler zuzurechnen, seine "Biographie ist wenig erhellt; ob Gerung in den Jahren 1524/25 noch in der Stadt weilte ist unsicher" (Blickle). In der vorliegenden Flugschrift tritt Gerung für ein neues Sakramentsverständnis ein: "Das Priestertum aller Gläubigen macht es überflüssig, daß die Laien den Priestern beichten, vielmehr ist der Beichte ihr eigentlicher Sinn zurückzugeben: durch die Sünde werden Menschen und Gott gekränkt, folglich hat der Sünder vor beiden seine Verfehlungen zu bekennen [...] Gerungs Beichtverständnis lebt auch aus der Hoffnung, daß sich so die alltäglichen Beziehungen zwischen den Menschen verchristlichen ließen. Kirchenkritik gewinnt hier einen starken gesellschaftsbessernden Zug" (Peter Blickle, Memmingen - ein Zentrum der Reformation, in: Geschichte der Stadt Memmingen I, S. 383). - Mit schöner ornamentaler Titelbordüre von Hans Weiditz. - Vereinzelt minimal stockfleckig. Sehr schönes Exemplar. *VD 16 G 1642. British Museum, German Books, 356. Dodgson II, 153, 38. Kuczynski 898.

1523. Octavo (185 x 130 mm). XLII ff. (A-E8, F2). Large woodcut on title with decorative woodcut border, putti above and below (Sander 7494 and pl. 93). Roman letter, numerous floriated white on black woodcut initials. Modern calf bound to style: covers with concentric frames in blind fillets, gilt fleurons at outer corners, central lozenge in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Second original Italian edition, second issue of Ludovico di Varthema's famous travels to Arabia, Persia, and India: the highly important and adventurous narrative containing the first recorded visit of a Westerner to Mecca. His description of the Hijaz is especially valuable as it pre-dates the Ottoman occupation of 1520. All early editions of Varthema's "Itinerario" are exceedingly rare (even the 2013 Hajj exhibition at the MIA, Doha, only featured the 1654 reprint; cf. below). - Varthema, a gentleman adventurer and soldier from Bologna, left Venice at the end of 1502. In 1503 he reached Alexandria and ascended the Nile to Cairo, continuing to Beirut, Tripoli, Aleppo and Damascus, where, adopting Islam and taking the name of Yunas, he joined a Mameluke escort of a Hajj caravan and began the pilgrimage to Mecca. Varthema was amazed by what he observed: "Truly I never saw so many people collected in one spot as during the twenty days I remained there", he begins, and arriving at the Great Mosque, continues, "it would not be possible to describe the sweetness and the fragrances which are smelt within this temple." Thanks to his knowledge of Arabic … [Click Below for Full Description]

This edition also re-uses the title-page border from the Commentaria, with some small alterations.

Luther, Martin
Wittenberg: Printed by Jobst Gutknecht (not stated), 1523. First edition. Hardcover. g to vg. Quarto. 24 unpaginated leaves. Bound in 19th century brown leather with embossed decorative ruling and gilt lettering on cover. Gilt dentelles and edges. Yellow endpapers. Illustrated title border. The original Gutknecht edition has been disbound and every page is tipped into the book separately at the left margin; the pages are printed on front side and verso with last page blank. This is accompnaied by a unique unsigned 1864 manuscript, sixteen pages with red ruling, of the literal translation of Luther's "Maundry Thursday" sermon. The manuscript is penned in beautiful handwriting with three corrections carefully administered. The sermon opens with Jesus' appearance in the room where the apostles were gathering behind locked doors in fear of the Jews. The manuscript is dated March 1864 at the end. A footnote, marked (a) on page twelve of the manuscript after "Behold thus also are we one body, if we believe that no one is for himself, but every one kneels, (a)... " is explained after the date at the end of the translation and reads "An allusion to the manner of kneeling in the time of Luther, when the churches were extremely crowded, one behind another and between his feet." There are two versions of the Maundry Service recorded of which this is the shorter version (Benzing, Luther, 1752; D. Luther's Werke, Kritische Gesamtausgabe, Vol. 12, Weimar, Hermann Böhlau, 1891, p. 472, item B). Text in German.

Strabo.
1523. Folio (220 x 325 mm). (36), 566, (2) pp. With woodcut title border by J. Faber after Hans Holbein, 2 additional borders, printer's device, and numerous initials. Blindstamped limp leather on four raised bands. Early Latin translation of the geography of Strabo, who had visited Egypt and sailed up the Nile in 25 BC. - Even in the introductory chapters, Strabo provides important details on the Arabian Peninsula: "Adjoining the Ethiopians, a needy and nomad race, is Arabia: one part of which is distinguished above all other lands by the title of Felix [i.e., Hedjaz and Nejd-ed-Ared], and the other, though not dignified by that name, is both generally believed and also said to be pre-eminently blessed. Though Homer knew of Arabia Felix, at that time it was by no means wealthy, but a wild country, the inhabitants of which dwelt for the most part in tents. It is only a small district which produces the aromatics from which the whole territory afterwards received its name, owing to the rarity of the commodity amongst us, and the value set upon it. That the Arabians are now flourishing and wealthy is due to their vast and extended trade" (p. 30f.); "Arabia Felix is bounded by the entire Arabian and Persian Gulfs, together with all the country of the tent-dwellers and the Sheikh-governed tribes. [...] Beside the ocean the country is tolerably fitted for habitation of man, but not so the centre of the country: this for the most part is barren, rugged sand desert.

Erste Ausgabe; eine von zwei Druckvarianten. - Rhegius hatte 1520 begonnen, im Augsburger Dom evangelisch zu predigen. 1521 vertrieben, konnte er erst 1524 zurückkehren.

Auch die vorliegende Predigt unter dem Motto "Wer nit eingeet in den Schaffstall, durch die Thür.

- Nombre de document : 1 lettre autographe signée Nombre de page : 5 In-folio Adresse au dos avec languette de fermeture. Transcription complète jointe. bon Très belle et longue lettre entièrement autographe, reflet de l'ambiance lourde pesant sur la Cour de France après la défaite de la Bicoque et la perte du Milanais en 1522. On voit que le vaincu, le Maréchal de Lautrec, rentré en France, avait sauvé son crédit auprès du Roi, ayant su rejeter la responsabilité du désastre sur sa mère qui avait gardé l'argent pour payer les troupes par-devers elle ; celle-ci fit retomber la faute sur le surintendant des Finances Semblançay. Dans cette lettre l'évêque de Tarbes, secrétaire du Maréchal, rentré aussi en France à sa suite, assure Jean de Selve resté en Italie qu'il sera bientôt rappelé selon son désir, grâce aux démarches de Lautrec auprès de François Ier. Il se disculpe des accusations qu'on lui impute (portées par Galéas Visconti) car à la Cour l'heure est aux règlements de compte : Semblançay fut pendu. « [ ]. Monsr. vous savés et avés entendu les charges que l'on m'a mises sus.

Early Latin translation of the geography of Strabo, who had visited Egypt and sailed up the Nile in 25 BC. - Even in the introductory chapters, Strabo provides important details on the Arabian Peninsula: "Adjoining the Ethiopians, a needy and nomad race, is Arabia: one part of which is distinguished above all other lands by the title of Felix [i.e., Hedjaz and Nejd-ed-Ared], and the other, though not dignified by that name, is both generally believed and also said to be pre-eminently blessed. Though Homer knew of Arabia Felix, at that time it was by no means wealthy, but a wild country, the inhabitants of which dwelt for the most part in tents. It is only a small district which produces the aromatics from which the whole territory afterwards received its name, owing to the rarity of the commodity amongst us, and the value set upon it. That the Arabians are now flourishing and wealthy is due to their vast and extended trade" (p. 30f.); "Arabia Felix is bounded by the entire Arabian and Persian Gulfs, together with all the country of the tent-dwellers and the Sheikh-governed tribes. [...] Beside the ocean the country is tolerably fitted for habitation of man, but not so the centre of the country: this for the most part is barren, rugged sand desert. The same applies to the country of the Troglodytic Arabians and the part occupied by the fish-eating tribes" (p. 90f … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Wittenberg?: Nickel Schirlentz?, 1523]. Small 4to (19 cm; 7.5"). [12] ff. Schrodt and Vogelstein write of this work that it "is a bitingly sarcastic portrayal of the papacy across the ages. In crisp language the author juxtaposes quotes from the Gospel with words and actions of the popes. E.g., Christ sent out his apostles to preach and to convert the people. The pope sends his apostates to tax and subvert the world."    The title-page bears => a woodcut single-element border featuring a bearded near-naked man with a child and a naked woman opposite with a child; Adam and Eve, with Cain and Abel?    This is the issue without the colophon.    WorldCat locates => only two copies of any edition in North America and with COPAC finds only two copies of this edition in Great Britain.    Provenance: Ex–Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School library with its bookplate (properly deaccessioned).

Pegius, Martin
ca. 450 Bll (unpaginiert), mit Fig. u. Tabellen, 4, Priv. Leinen mit Rückentext (= Klassiker der Astrologie. Bd. 1). - Ackermann IV/ 447: "Vorzüglich gelungener, nur in 500 Exemplaren hergestellter Faksimile-Druck des sehr seltenen u. wichtigen Werkes, das auf dem Gebiet der Astrologie grundlegend ist." - Das von Martin Pegius (1523-1592) geschaffene "Geburtsstundenbuch" ist eines der bedeutendsten Lehrbücher der Astrologie, auf dem zahlreiche Nachfolger basieren, wie z.B. die "Kleine Deutsche Astrologie oder eine Enthüllung des menschlichen Lebens durch ein neues vollständiges Geburtsstundenbuch" mit einem Geleitwort des Leiters der dtsch. Rosenkreuzer-Bewegung, Heinrich Tränker (1880-1956). "Einen besonderen Reiz erhält das Buch durch das Christushoroskop, von welchem dasjenige des Bischofs Butler im Jahre 1669 berechnet, um ein sehr geringes abweicht." (Buchbesprechung in "Der Psychokrat" Okt. 1924). - Um den Juristen Dr. Martin Pegius, der damals in Salzburg lebte, ranken sich Mythen. Denn ihm u. seiner Frau war 1581 mehrfach "die Königin von Saba" erschienen. "So auch am dritten Osterfeiertag, dem 26. März 1581, an welchem Tage Frau Pegius von der Königin erfahren, daß den Bewohnern des Untersberges vor tausend Jahren prophezeit geworden sei, daß ein Mann namens Martinus, der in der Astronomie und Juristerei wohl erfahren, auferstehen und sie durch seine Fürbitte erlösen werde. Zwischen dem 14. und 26. März 1581 habe ihnen Gott einen Engel gesandt, der ihnen verkündete, daß Dr. Martin Pegius derjenige sei, von welchem die Prophezeiung sprach."

Güttel, Caspar).
O.O., Dr. u. J. (Zwickau, Johann Schönsperger d.J., 1523). Kl.-4°. 28 nn. Bll. (Lagen: d4-k4). Interimsbr. (etw. angestaubt, gering fleckig). Claus, Die Zwickauer Drucke des 16. Jhdts., S. 74, Nr. 7.- VD 16, G 3986.- Einzige Ausgabe des 4. und in sich abgeschlossener Teil der 6-teiligen Predigtsammlung des lutherischen Theologen und Reformators Caspar Güttel (od. Güthel), der zu den ältesten Freunden Luthers gehört. Geb. 1471 in Rötz, gest. am 24. Mai 1542 in Eisleben, erwarb er im Januar 1517 den Doktorgrad in Leipzig, trat aber im Ablassstreit auf Luthers Seite. Auf dem Heidelberger Konvent wurde er zum Prior in Eisleben gewählt. In der Krisenzeit des Ordens trat er auch in seinen Predigten für Luther ein. Auch als der Eislebener Konvent sich 1523 auflöste, blieb er in der Stadt und setzte seine Predigten fort. Seine Predigtsammlung erschien mit dem Haupttitel: "Quadragesimal oder etliche fastepredig, auß den Episteln un Euangelien". Siehe Claus S. 75 über die Druckgeschichte: "Dieser umfangreichste Druck der Schönsperger-Offizin in Zwickau führt die typographische Entwicklung in den ersten Monaten des Bestehens der Werkstatt deutlich vor Augen: Die ältere große Auszeichnungsschrift (Type 1) ist zunächst ziemlich rein vertreten, wird dann aber mit der großen Fraktur (Type 4) immer mehr vermischt . Dies führt zu der Schlußfolgerung, daß die Predigten über mehrere Monate hinweg, vom Mai/Juni bis September 1523, in Abständen gesetzt und gedruckt worden sind, was wahrscheinlich mit der Lieferung des Manuskriptes zusammenhängt. Offenbar hat Güttel das Manuskript nach und nach … [Click Below for Full Description]
