MÜNSTER, Sebastian.
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, wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arriano Lucio Flavio
appresso Michele Tramezino, 1544. In-8° antico (155x100mm), ff. (9), 178, (2), legatura settecentesca p. pergamena rigida con titolo in oro su tassello in pelle rossa al dorso. Tagli azzurri. Impresa tipografica al frontespizio e al colophon). Spazi guida per i capilettera. Registro ed explicit al recto della prima c. Normali bruniture, qualche alone lieve. Antica firma cassata al frontespizio. Bell'esemplare. Prima traduzione italiana, rara. Arriano di Nicomedia, vissuto nel II secolo d.C., fu scrittore fecondissimo d'ogni genere d'argomenti, dalla filosofia alla geografia, dalla storia alla caccia. Discepolo di Epitteto a Nicopoli, fu fedele seguace della sua filosofia stoica. L'amicizia con l'imperatore Adriano, forse conosciuto all'epoca della frequentazione di Epitteto, gli permise di ricoprire prestigiose cariche politiche; da un'iscrizione ritrovata a Cordova sappiamo che fu proconsole della Spagna Betica, e che, intorno al 130, assurse al grado di console. Nominato governatore della Cappadocia dal 131 al 136, riuscì ad amministrarla con grande competenza, respingendo nel 135 un'invasione dei barbari Alani. Si ritirò in seguito a vita privata, forse per incomprensioni con l'erede di Adriano, Antonino Pio, divenendo cittadino di Atene e rivestendovi varie cariche, tra cui spicca quella di arconte eponimo nel 145; in questo periodo si dedicò, inoltre, all'attività letteraria a tempo pieno, probabilmente componendo le sue opere più vaste e ispirandosi in maniera costante e sistematica a Senofonte. Ignoriamo l'anno della sua morte. STC Italian Books, p. 57. Brunet, I, co … [Click Below for Full Description]

JUAN AND , 523, ISCO PEREZ, COGOLLUDO, GUADALAJARA, COURT VALLADOLID
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 appear … [Click Below for Full Description]

DANTE.
(In fine) Impressa in Vinegia, per Francesco Marcolini, 1544. in-4 (mm.277x168), ff. 442 n.n. (ultimo bianco). Magnifica leg. coeva in marocchino scuro con doppio filetto oro formante una bordura ai piatti con fregi floreali angolari e centrali impressi in oro, tagli in oro goffrati (lievi e abili restauri alla cerniera anteriore), conservato entro astuccio moderno in tela. Testo in elegante carattere corsivo, racchiuso dal commento in corpo minore. Edizione Illustrata da 3 figure a piena pagina e 84 altre su 1/3 o 1/2 pag. in silografia, attribuite allo stesso Marcolini, ottimo disegnatore amico del Tiziano e del Sansovino; è giudicata la prima illustrazione moderna della Commedia, che servì da esempio per tutte le edizioni cinquecentesche. Le illustrazioni ''are an extension of the commentary, a more instructive form of illustration'' (Mortimer 146). Celebre edizione, tra le più ambite di Dante, la prima con il commento del Vellutello. (La Commedia assunse il titolo di ''Divina'' a partire dall'edizione Giolitina del 1555). Come descritto soltanto dal Fische a p. 8 tre versi del Purgatorio (II, 64-66; segn V 7) non furono inseriti in origine e in quasi tutti gli esemplari vennero aggiunti e stampati in un secondo tempo a mano con differenza di giustificazione e di inchiostratura.

BIBLE, in Latin
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 cop … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

San Martino, M.
[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. 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.

MELA, Pomponius and Gaius Julius SOLINUS
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. Vurstisius (1544-1588) was a professor of mathematics and theology at Basel and its first city historian. Mela's geographical survey of the inhabited world, the first geographical work in Latin, is preceded by Vurstisius's preface and an extensive index. It is followed by a geographical summary of the parts of the known world by Gaius Julius Solinus (3rd century).The woodcut map plates are numbered 1-33, but plate 33 contains 2 single-page maps and plate 26 (lacking in the present copy) contains 3 single-page maps, making 36 maps in total. Plates 28 and 29 were also printed on a single piece of paper, but were apparently intended for binding as 2 single-page plates, though in the present copy they appear as a single folding plate.With contemporary manuscript note on title-page, some underlining. 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.

MÜNSTER, Sebastian.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title-page in red and black with woodcut printer's device (repeated on MM6, the final page), a few woodcut initials and a few spaces for initals with only guide letters printed, woodcut headpieces. A small number of underlinings and marginal annotations in an old hand, mostly towards the front. Title-page a little grubby at fore-edge, occasional old marginal repairs, a little faint dampstaining to margins near the rear. Contemporary German blind-tooled panelled calf over bevel-edged wooden boards, with as-yet unidentified armorial tools to centre, raised bands to spine. Sympathetically rebacked, some chips and surface loss to corners, clasps lost, upper hinge separated a little but entirely sound.The first printing of the original Greek text of the works of Josephus, which remained the standard text for over three hundred years. A Latin translation had been printed and reprinted beginning in the incunable period. This Greek text was edited by Arnoldus Arlenius (1510-1582) together with Froben's in-house scholar Sigismund Gelen, working from a manuscript discovered by Arlenius in his cataloguing of the library of the Spanish ambassador to Venice, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (1503-1575). Froben set the text in the same fine Greek type he had used for the 1516 Erasmus edition of the New Testament.

BRAUN, Georg & HOGENBERG, Frans
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.
