PHILIP II OF SPAIN, King
Written by a secretary, Gabriel de Cayas, with his signature. Folded leaf of paper with circular watermark. 30,3 x 21,7 cm. 10 lines in a neat chancellor's hand, with Philip's signature 'Yo El Rey' (I The King) and 'buen Germano de.v.al' ('de vuestra alteza' = Good Brother of Your Highness). Folded as an envelope with address in the secretary's manuscript and in a cursive hand 'La Depesche du Conte d'Arenbergue' (The Message of the Count d'Aremberg'). Traces of a wax seal. Some creasing and light browning. (Added: an extensive background dossier (partly in Dutch), including publications on the House of Aremberg.)* King Philip (1527-1598) wishes Henry of Anjou (1551-1589) luck with the birth of the daughter of his older brother, King Charles IX of France (1550-1574). He sends this letter to the Duke through Count Charles of Aremberg (1550-1616), who performed diplomatic services for him. The Duke of Anjou is invited to trust the Count of Aremberg in everything, to believe all he will say on behalf of Philip, and tell the Count whatever Anjou wants to happen. Philip will endeavor to provide Anjou with all the good will he is well-known for.Henry of Anjou was the younger brother of Elisabeth of Valois (1545-1568), Philip's third wife. But the term 'bueno germano' might as well be a formula of courtesy.We should see this letter in the light of the massacre of St. Bartholomew's Day, when the leaders of the Protestant party in France were slaughtered, which had taken place three months earlier. Philip was excited about that bloody reckoning, it is the only time that is known of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cornelis van WYTFLIET (1555-1597), Louvain, 1597, Copper engraving (fine, some areas of faint staining, some wormholes in blank margin, some paper thinness to centerfold, verso of outer margins backed by archival tape), image size: 23 x 28,5 cm
- This important and engaging map is the first to focus on the Río de la Plata region, printed in the first atlas dedicated to the Americas. The map embraces most of Paraguay, northern Argentina, Uruguay and the adjacent parts of Brazil. Visually is it focused on the broad Río de la Plata estuary and the courses of the "El grand rio de Parana’ (Paraná River) and the ‘Rio Lepiti’ (Uruguay River). While far from precisely accurate, the map provides a basic overall degree of verisimilitude to reality that makes it relatable to the modern viewer. The mapping was based on the observations of Spanish explorers, some of who ventured to the area in search of the ‘Ciudad de los Césares’ (City of the Caesars), a mythical metropolis of vast riches that allegedly exited in the interior. Not too far above the location of the modern Buenos Aires region is ‘S. Espirito’ (Santo or Espíritu Santo), at the confluence of the Carcarana and Paraná rivers, a short-lived settlement founded by Sebastian Cabot that existed between 1527 and 1529. The map features the ‘Rio de Buenas Arres’, although the city of Buenos Aires is not included, as it was founded in 1536, but abandoned in 1542. While reestablished in 1580, it was a minor settlement that did not yet warrant much attention. ‘Assumption’ (Asunción, Paraguay), founded in 1542, is erroneously shown to be on the ‘Rio Lepiti’ (Uruguay River), and not near the confluence of the Paraguay and Paraná, rivers, as is the case. It was by for the most important Spanish base in the region a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nuremberg: Hans Guldemundt, 1527. |~||~||~||~||~| Extremely Rare First Edition. Both graphically and textually incendiary, this work provided a beacon in the Protestant "war of words" at the beginning phase of the Reformation. "It was an opening salvo in the anti-papal and anti-Catholic propaganda campaign waged by Nuremberg's Lutherans" (Smith, Nuremberg, A Renaissance City, p. 167). Eyn wunderliche Weyssagung von dem Babstumb ("A Wonderful Prophecy of the Papacy") represents a collaboration of several of the leading reformist figures in Nuremberg at the time; its publication was intended to provoke a sensation.

Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title.. Rare and early Venetian edition of what is perhaps the most important medical text of the Middle Ages: the greatest work of Ibn Sina, hailed as "the most famous medical text ever written" (Garrison/M. 43). Based on the translation of Gerard of Cremona, edited and revised by Andrea Alpago of Belluno, who also included an extensive glossary of Arabic terms (no edition in the original Arabic was printed until 1593). In the illustrated title page, portraits appear of the great classical and medieval Islamic figures of medicine and philosophy: Asclepius, Hippocrates, Galen, Avicenna, Rasis, Plato, Aristotle, Theophrastus and Averroes. - Ibn Sina's "Keta-b al-qanun fi'l-tebb" ("Canon of Medicine"), written in Arabic but widely translated throughout the Middle Ages and the basis of medical training in the West as late as the mid-17th century. Completed in 1025, the Qanun is divided into 5 books, devoted to the basic principles of medicine, the Materia Medica (listing about 800 drugs), pathology, diseases affecting the body as a whole and finally the formulary. - Ibn Sina (c. 980-1037), known in the Western tradition as Avicenna, was physician to the ruling caliphs. The influence of his Qanun can hardly be overestimated. Translated into Latin in the 12th century, it became a standard textbook of Galenic medicine, influencing many generations of physicians.

Both titles within identical alegorical woodcut border depicting at its base a recumbent Cleopatra pressing adders to her breasts, Dionysus pulling the beard of an old man, etc.; illustrated with woodcut capitals, headpieces and fleurons; first page of NOCTES within large woodcut border depicting the founders of Cologne, Agrippa and Agrippina [all illustrations by Hittorp?]. 1 vols. Folio. Very interesting and beautifully decorated Cologne printings by Cervicornum -- who seemingly specialized in humanistic works and standard Latin classics such as these, working for the publisher Gottfried Hittorp. He may, alas, be best remembered by posterity for his piracy of Erasmus's edition (originally printed by Froben) of Epistolae Tres by Jerome in 1520, as well as Erasmus' Vita Hieronymi, taken from Erasmus' edition of St. Jerome's works printed by Froben in 1516.

Quintilianus, Marcus Fabius
Cologne: Apud Eucharium Cervicornum, sumptu et aere M. Godefridi Hittorpii, 1527. [4] ll., 330 pp.; [24] ll., 202 pp., [13] ll. Both titles within identical alegorical woodcut border depicting at its base a recumbent Cleopatra pressing adders to her breasts, Dionysus pulling the beard of an old man, etc.; illustrated with woodcut capitals, headpieces and fleurons; first page of NOCTES within large woodcut border depicting the founders of Cologne, Agrippa and Agrippina [all illustrations by Hittorp?]. 1 vols. Folio. Contemporary calf, covers elaborately ruled and tooled in blind; spine perished; internally, some soiling and staining throughout, but sound; in a quarter morocco slipcase with chemise. Very interesting and beautifully decorated Cologne printings by Cervicornum - who seemingly specialized in humanistic works and standard Latin classics such as these, working for the publisher Gottfried Hittorp. He may, alas, be best remembered by posterity for his piracy of Erasmus's edition (originally printed by Froben ) of Epistolae Tres by Jerome in 1520, as well as Erasmus' Vita Hieronymi, taken from Erasmus' edition of St. Jerome's works printed by Froben in 1516.

Münster, Sebastian.
Basel, Johann Froben, 1527. - 4to. (8), 434, (2) pp. With woodcut title border by Hans Holbein. (Bound with) II: The same. [Dikduk de-lishan arami. In hakhasda'ah] Chaldaica grammatica [.]. Ibid., 1527. (8), 212, (4) pp. Both works have woodcut printer's devices at the end. Contemp. blindstamped browns calf with 2 clasps. Sammelband containing two rare works by Münster: the first grammar of Aramaic written in Germany, a principal work, and the first German-produced Aramaic dictionary. "His dictionary [was] adapted from Pagninus's excerpt of Nathan Ben Yehiel's Arukh [.] Münster's most important work [.] was his Aramaic grammar, the first of its kind. The 'Chaldean' element in the Bible has of course long since been recognised, and people like Aurogallus and Fagius had treated the subject earlier in connection with their Hebrew studies. But just as Sanctes Pagninus was the first to exclude deliberately the Aramaic vocabulary from his Hebrew dictionary (1529), so Münster was the first to publish both a grammar and a dictionary devoted solely to Aramaic [.] A special feature of this grammar is the lexicographical introduction to the rabbinical Bible commentaries, with various Latin-Hebrew wordlists of technical terms. Münster also gives examples of the Sephardi and Ashkenazi rabbinical script in woodcut [.] The author compares the Aramaic with Arabic (called by him Saracenica lingua) which he quotes in transcription" (Smitskamp). - Binding restored; endpapers replaced. Obliterated contemp. ownership to t. p.; a few contemp. marginalia near the beginning of the grammar. I: VD 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]
