         Biblia Sacrosancta Testamenti Veteris & Noui, iuxta vulgatum quam dicunt aeditionem

      J. and F. Frellon for Hugues de La Porte and heirs of A. de La Porte, Lyons 1544 - Folio (348 x 246 mm). Woodcut printer's device (Baudrier 7) on title, 91 woodcuts, including one repeat, in the Old Testament and seven in the New Testament. Early 20th-century brown crushed levant morocco gilt, spine gilt-lettered with monograms "VM" and title, gilt coat of arms of Prince d'Essling with his motto "Victor et fidelis" on both sides, edges gilt, by Lortic. Binding with a few minor scuffs; washed and pressed. Provenance: Victor Massena, Prince d'Essling (1836-1910) (binding); acquired from Philip Hofer, 1962. SECOND LATIN BIBLE FROM THIS PRESS TO INCLUDE THE HOLBEIN ILLUSTRATIONS; the first was printed in 1538. The text follows the Vulgate, edited with notes by Robert Estienne, which were proscribed by the theological faculties of Louvain and Paris and placed on the first papal Index. In 1538, Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel printed both the first edition of Holbein's Icones (including eighty-six of the cuts used here in the Old Testament), for the Frellons, and the first Bible to contain the Holbein cuts, for Hugues de La Porte. La Porte published new editions of the Holbein Bible in 1544 and 1551 with only minor changes in the cuts. Holbein's woodblocks, which may date from 1529-1530, were influenced by other illustrated Lyons Bibles, most notably the 1521 Bailly edition (itself modeled on earlier Giunta editions) and the 1520 Gueynard edition. Holbein's illustrations set a new standard for Bible illustration and were widely copied for later editions published in Lyons, Paris, Zurich and Antwerp. Although this 1544 edition does follow the 1538 closely, it is not a page-for-page reprint. In this edition, one Icones block for II Kings I has been added between nos. 37 and 38, but no 42, Abisag, is omitted and replaced by a repetition of no. 63, Esther. Two other subjects by a different hand have been added at Genesis iv and ix. Brun, p.153; Harvard/Mortimer French 72; Woltmann, Holbein II, p.173. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Der alt gloub. Das der Christen gloub von anfang der wält gewärt habe, der recht waar alt unnd ungezwyflet gloub sye, klare bewysung Heinrychen Bullingers [.].

      - [Colophon: Zürich, Christoph Froschauer], 1544. 8vo. 64 lvs. Early twentieth-century leather with blind-stamped ornaments. VD 16 B 9602; Staedtke 102; Rudolphi 307; Vischer C 330; Kuczynski 339. Fourth German edition of Bullinger's early treatise on the Christian faith. It was first published in Basel in 1537 and reprinted by Froschauer in 1539, 1542, and 1544. In line with the claims of his significant treatise on the covenant, Bullinger emphasizes the substantial unity between the Old and New Testament in this treatise. It was his aim to demonstrate the antiquity of the Christian religion and in particular the catholicity of the truth of the Reformed faith. He argued that the Reformation represented only the rediscovery and restoration of the old faith and had nothing to do with any innovation, like the Roman Catholics maintained. 'Der alt gloub' has been translated into Latin, English, and Dutch. - Old owner's inscription on title page, upper margins closely trimmed, first leaves and lower margins stained.

         Lettera autografa firmata del celebre Bibliotecario dei Farnese. Figlio illegittimo di un Orsini del ramo di Mugnano, le sue doti intellettuali gli avevano fatto presto guadagnare la protezione di Gentile Delfini, che si occupo' della sua formazione e lo presento' in seguito ai Farnese. Nel 1544, egli figurava gia' sul "rotolo de' familiari" a carico del Cardinale Alessandro, sebbene fosse a servizio del Cardinale Ranuccio come Bibliotecario, incarico che svolse per l'intera vita. E al Cardinale Farnese (dest. autografo alla quarta con sig. cart. e taglio della carta in diagonale non lesivo del testo) e' indirizzata proprio questa lettera datata Roma xxi di luglio 1576 in cui l'Orsini descrive un procedimento (alchemico?) che sta eseguendo per conto del Cardinale "Hoggi e' spirato il tempo che V.S.M. s'era contentata di prefigere a'quel negozio & qui non s'ha altro di piu' senonche' la materia tutta che io scrissi a V.S.M. stara' nel fuoco (_) La persona coniettura che sara' disposta affatto per la reduttione, quale dice di voler principian il giorno seguente (_) come prima sara' messa in fuoco per cinque (ore?) la istessa materia tutta ma in boccio grande di vitro (_) estando le cosi in fini, staro' aspettando (quello) che V.S.M. risolvera' di fare perche' in nero non venendosi_etc.". Annibal Caro, il Segretario di Alessandro, fin dal 1555 presentava l'Orsini come "un giovane di molto merito, il quale e' molto amico mio".

         Coniecturae de ultimis temporibus, ac de fine mundi, ex sacris litteris.

      - Nürnberg, Johann Petreius, 1544. 8vo. [32] lvs. (last blank). Wrappers. VD 16 O 997; Seebass 38.3; Adams O 355. Very rare Latin edition of Osiander's conjectures on the end of the world, published in the same year and by the same publisher as the two other Latin editions. It was supposed to carry forward Melanchthon's commentary on Daniel by offering a more exact calculation of the prophesied epochs. Of the four conjectures, the first deals with the prophecy of Elijah, the second calculates the years that had elapsed between Adam and the flood, the third connects Christ's age on earth with the end of the church -Osiander stresses that, although no man could know the exact time of Christ's coming, true Christians might comprehend its closeness within certain limits- and the fourth predicts from Daniel that Rome would twice achieve world dominance. The three Latin editions of Osiander's conjectures were quickly followed by a German edition in 1545 and an English translation in 1548. - Owner's ticket on inside front wrapper, small wormhole in inner margin of first four leaves (not affecting the text), and inside rear wrapper stained.

         Cosmographia, das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt, ...Basel, heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri, 1628. Folio (38 x 24.5 cm). With engraved title-page, letterpress title-page printed in red and black with woodcut portrait of Münster on the back, 26 numbered double-page woodcut maps on inserted bifolia, 72 double-page woodcut maps, plans and views on integral leaves, and about 1500 woodcut illustrations in the text (including repeats) showing maps, plans, views, plants, animals, monsters, etc. Contemporary vellum.

      Sabin 51396; VD17 23:230709C (7 copies); cf. H.L. Ruland, “A survey of the double-page maps in thirty-five editions of the Cosmographia Universalis 1544-1628 of Sebastian Münster ...” in: Imago Mundi XVI (1962), pp. 84-97; for Münster: DSB IX, pp. 580-581. Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200. From the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-1657) in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's Suecia antiqua et hodierna, are loosely inserted); several annotations in Swedish on the pastedowns.One leaf of the register restored affecting part of the text (replacement from a smaller copy of the 1614 edition), frontispiece reinforced in the gutter margin, some occasional thumbing and a few dog-eared leaves, otherwise a very good and clean copy, with the paper nearly untrimmed (tranchefiles still visible). Binding also very good, lacking the flyleaves.

         Patent of nobility (Real Ejecutoria de Nobleza) comprising a judgement of the court of Valladolid, confirming the noble status of Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez of Cogolludo, province of Guadalajara, Spain.

      Valladolid, Spain, d.d. 1544. Full vellum. 33 x 22 cm. Two pieces of rope attached to front cover to open and close it, but one piece partly missing. Writing in ink on front cover, small damage poorly repaired. Clumsily bound wih a piece of green and pink rope. Pages slightly grimed in the margins but generally good. (18) pages court judgement on vellum, manuscript, calligraphic, text. First page lavishly illustrated with a coat-of-arms and decorated in the margins with flowers and animals. With gold in the text. Comes with a manuscript letter d.d. 5 January 1547, 2 pages on paper. This rare and beautifully executed court judgement comprises the patent of nobility for two brothers, Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez, from the town of Cogolludo in the province Guadalajara (Spain). It dates from 1544, in the reign of Emperor Charles V, King of Spain. It holds the sentence of the court of Valladolid which, besides having their properties reinstated, also confirms their recognition as old noble status (hidalguia) after hearing evidence from elders (persons mentioned as being more than 80 and more than 60 years old) and respected inhabitants of the city Cogolludo. Contained within is the instruction pertaining to the return of their estates. Of special interest is the magnificent miniature detail on this parchment with a loaded coat of arms with several specific Spanish heraldic elements. The brothers seem to have objected on the 7 of April 1543 to being treated as ordinary tax payers (pecheros) and having lost their properties. They sued the Imperial authorities who appeared by the licentiates Pedroza and Hunjedo. As representatives in Toledo are mentioned the licentiates Oviedo and Diego de Alfaro. H141

         Biblia Sacrosancta Testamenti Veteris & Noui, iuxta vulgatum quam dicunt aeditionem

      Lyons: J. and F. Frellon for Hugues de La Porte and heirs of A. de La Porte, 1544. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (348 x 246 mm). Woodcut printer's device (Baudrier 7) on title, 91 woodcuts, including one repeat, in the Old Testament and seven in the New Testament. Early 20th-century brown crushed levant morocco gilt, spine gilt-lettered with monograms "VM" and title, gilt coat of arms of Prince d'Essling with his motto "Victor et fidelis" on both sides, edges gilt, by Lortic. Binding with a few minor scuffs; washed and pressed. Provenance: Victor Massena, Prince d'Essling (1836-1910) (binding); acquired from Philip Hofer, 1962. SECOND LATIN BIBLE FROM THIS PRESS TO INCLUDE THE HOLBEIN ILLUSTRATIONS; the first was printed in 1538. The text follows the Vulgate, edited with notes by Robert Estienne, which were proscribed by the theological faculties of Louvain and Paris and placed on the first papal Index. In 1538, Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel printed both the first edition of Holbein's Icones (including eighty-six of the cuts used here in the Old Testament), for the Frellons, and the first Bible to contain the Holbein cuts, for Hugues de La Porte. La Porte published new editions of the Holbein Bible in 1544 and 1551 with only minor changes in the cuts. Holbein's woodblocks, which may date from 1529-1530, were influenced by other illustrated Lyons Bibles, most notably the 1521 Bailly edition (itself modeled on earlier Giunta editions) and the 1520 Gueynard edition. Holbein's illustrations set a new standard for Bible illustration and were widely copied for later editions published in Lyons, Paris, Zurich and Antwerp. Although this 1544 edition does follow the 1538 closely, it is not a page-for-page reprint. In this edition, one Icones block for II Kings I has been added between nos. 37 and 38, but no 42, Abisag, is omitted and replaced by a repetition of no. 63, Esther. Two other subjects by a different hand have been added at Genesis iv and ix. Brun, p.153; Harvard/Mortimer French 72; Woltmann, Holbein II, p.173.

         Patent of nobility (Real Ejecutoria de Nobleza) comprising a judgement of the court of Valladolid, confirming the noble status of Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez of Cogolludo, province of Guadalajara, Spain.

      - Valladolid, Spain, d.d. 1544. Full vellum. 33 x 22 cm. Two pieces of rope attached to front cover to open and close it, but one piece partly missing. Writing in ink on front cover, small damage poorly repaired. Clumsily bound wih a piece of green and pink rope. Pages slightly grimed in the margins but generally good. (18) pages court judgement on vellum, manuscript, calligraphic, text. First page lavishly illustrated with a coat-of-arms and decorated in the margins with flowers and animals. With gold in the text. Comes with a manuscript letter d.d. 5 January 1547, 2 pages on paper. This rare and beautifully executed court judgement comprises the patent of nobility for two brothers, Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez, from the town of Cogolludo in the province Guadalajara (Spain). It dates from 1544, in the reign of Emperor Charles V, King of Spain. It holds the sentence of the court of Valladolid which, besides having their properties reinstated, also confirms their recognition as old noble status (hidalguia) after hearing evidence from elders (persons mentioned as being more than 80 and more than 60 years old) and respected inhabitants of the city Cogolludo. Contained within is the instruction pertaining to the return of their estates. Of special interest is the magnificent miniature detail on this parchment with a loaded coat of arms with several specific Spanish heraldic elements. The brothers seem to have objected on the 7 of April 1543 to being treated as ordinary tax payers (pecheros) and having lost their properties. They sued the Imperial authorities who appeared by the licentiates Pedroza and Hunjedo. As representatives in Toledo are mentioned the licentiates Oviedo and Diego de Alfaro. H141

         Pescatoria et ecloghe.

      [Venezia, Giolito de Ferrari, 1544 or 1566]. Small 8vo (14.3 x 9.7 cm). Title page with large, engraved vignette[184] pp., contemporary vellum. Spine with black morocco label and gilt title. Red and white mottled edges.l Apparently the first edition of this work in verse, perhaps in the "tradition" of Oppian. Written by Matteo, conte de (or di) San Martino (1494-1556), an Italian scholar and linguist. According to Brunet, "Cette édition ne porte ni lieu d'impression ni nom d'imprimeur, mais elle a sur le frontispiece le Phénix, marque Giotto de Venise". Interestingly, a smaller version of the same vignette is repeated on the errata leaf verso. The publishing date is uncertain. Westwood and Satchell date it from 1566, but 1544 has been mentioned as well. Cancelled bookplate on front pastedown (Harvard Library, from the bequest of Mary P. C. Nash in memory of her husband Bennett Hubbard Nash, Instructor and Professor of Italian and Spanish 1866-1894). Small cancelled stamp on title page verso. Otherwise a very good clean copy.

      Adams M-1063 (incomplete); Chadenat 6400; Harrisse 112; VD 16, M2326. The first and only edition to be edited by Christianus Vurstisius of the pioneering geographical works two classical Latin geographers, Mela and Solinus.

Lacking 3 maps. Corner of 1 map repaired at an early date, slightly affecting the border, ocean and 1 small island, and tears in the gutter of one bifolium not affecting text, also partly repaired.

Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200.

Binding also very good, lacking the flyleaves.

         Amstelredamum, Nobile Inferioris Germaniae Oppidum

      Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. View. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13.5" x 19.25" This plan of Amsterdam, based on Cornelis Antoniszoon's 1544 woodcut plan, shows the city with its medieval walls and defense systems. Published circa 1572, the map celebrates the city's booming commerce and trade by showing its rivers and canals teeming with ships of all sizes. At the center of the city is the dam of the Amstel River, which was lined with public buildings. Red colored roofs of buildings throughout the city accurately depict the common medieval style of Dutch architecture. Among them, the extravagant size of churches indicates their architectural and social prominence. A small key with two figures in the lower left corner identifies these and other important buildings, while text in the upper right corner describes Amsterdam's growing commercial prominence. The city's coat of arms is at the upper left. Latin text on verso. The map is in good condition with few chips and tears, not affecting the image. Candlewax stain on ship near center of bottom edge of image. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," first printed atlas of the towns of the world. The 6-volume collection comprised 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities, with Hogenberg's collaboration on the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. This plan of Amsterdam demonstrates the high quality of their work.

The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200. From the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-1657) in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's Suecia antiqua et hodierna, are loosely inserted); several annotations in Swedish on the pastedowns.One leaf of the register restored affecting part of the text (replacement from a smaller copy of the 1614 edition), frontispiece reinforced in the gutter margin, some occasional thumbing and a few dog-eared leaves, otherwise a very good and clean copy, with the paper nearly untrimmed (tranchefiles still visible). Binding also very good, lacking the flyleaves.
