         Geschiedenissen van Don Juan.)

      (19e eeuw) - (46) folia. Opnieuw gebonden Leer met ribben en stempels, 8° (Folium 3 en 4 zijn met elkaar verwisseld. Handschrift met geschiedenissen omtrent de Spaanse legerleider en onwettige zoon van keizer Karel V, Don Juan, 1547-1578. Don Juan, ookwel Jan van Oostenrijk, was landvoogd van de Nederlanden aan het begin van de Tachtigjarige Oorlog. Hij was tevens legeraanvoerder en veroverde de stad Namen, viel Antwerpen aan en behaalde een grote overwinning in de Slag bij Gembloers. Zijn wederwaardigheden worden beschreven in dit handschrift, beginnende met zijn aanstelling tot landvoogd van de Nederlanden in 1577. Het werk bestaat uit 46 beschreven perkamenten bladen met daarop 12/13 regels en 4 blanco bladen. De hoofdtekst is geschreven met zwarte inkt waarbij de kapitalen zijn geschreven met rode ink of een enkele keer met blauwe inkt. Belangrijke namen zijn geheel in rode en/of blauwe inkt geschreven en het werk bevat 10 gedecoreerde kapitalen waarvan 3 met goud zijn gehoogd. De tekst is vrijwel een-op-een gekopiërd uit het werk over de beginjaren van de Tachtigjarige Oorlog door Willem Baudartius, 1565-1640. De opsteller heeft hierbij enkele gedeeltes die handelen over Don Juan verzameld en overgenomen. Het werk bevat daarnaast een persoonlijke noot in de vorm van een korte boodschap van de opsteller die zich uitgeeft als zijnde Jean François le Petit, 1546-ca. 1615: ''Ik sluijte mijne handschrifte met een cort Verhael van 't innemen 't welck door verned van de stede Baillu Potselserghe inghenomen en gheplonderd is gheweest ende waer ick Ian Francoys Petit Oogch-ghetuighe hebbe gheweest en als burger der stede na feytelijckheid alles met eene consiencieuslijke waerheid beschreven hebben voor mijnen en ter eere van sijnen feestelijcken dagch mijnen seer beminden vriend: Francoys Hallewijn. Heere van Swevegem gevolen tot het gouverneeren der stede van Cortrijcke Anno 1580. Geschenk toeghewesen aen mijnen ghetrouwigen vriend op sijnen feestelijken dach Franciscus Exaverius 3 Decembrius 1580. Ian Francoys Petit.'' Le Petit is geen onbekende, hij was historieschrijver en van zijn hand verscheen een historiekroniek over de Nederlandse Republiek. Echter is het niet aannemelijk dat het handschrift van zijn hand is, aangezien de tekst afkomstig is uit een publicatie uit 1616 en het handschrift van de tekst en het perkament waarop deze geschreven is wijzen op een veel latere datering. Het werk is gebonden in een fraai bewerkte, blind-gestempelde band door binderij Weckesser. Met op het voorplat een grote afbeelding van St. Joris en de draak en op het achterplat diverse sterren gevat in ruitmotieven. Tezamen een aantrekkelijk geheel bewaard in een gemarmerde cassette.) Baudartius, W. (1616). Afbeeldinge ende beschryvinghe van alle de veldslagen, belegeringen ende and're notabele geschiedenissen ghevallen in de Nederlanden, p. 238-337

Printer's woodcut device on title, woodcut initials, geometric diagrams throughout and occasional woodcut figures [balance scales [XXI-XXII], unknown device [XXXV], wedge [XXXIX], pulley [XL], well [LX], 2-man team with poles braced between them, on their shoulders in order to lift a heavy rock [LXII], concentric circles as in a solar system model, incl. rocks in place of planets [LXVIII]; f. XL bottom corner torn away. Early quarter vellum, marbled boards, later endleaves; worming at spine joints, vellum present, but gnarled. Ownership signature and black stamps on title. Very good. OF ARISTOTELIAN MECHANICS AND ITS PHILOSOPHY. First edition. This book ignited a debate "over the certainty of mathematics, which was sparked in 1547 by Alessandro Piccolomini's commentary on pseudo-Aristotle's Problemata Mechanica." â€" Niccolà Guicciardini, Isaac Newton on Mathematical Certainty and Method - Issue 4 â€" 2009, pp. 3-4. See also: Nicholas Jardine, "Keeping Order in the School of Padua," 1997. "Many sixteenth-century authors studied the Mechanical Problems." These include Niccolo Leonico Tomeo, Alessandro Piccolomini, Girolamo Cardano, and Niccolo Tartaglia. "Alessandro Piccolomini chose to make it more accessible by publishing a paraphrase of the work in 1547 in Rome: In mechanicas quaestiones Aristotelis, para phrasis paulo quidem plenior, shows both his erudition in the use of available manuscripts as well as his practical knowledge of the contemporary mechanical technology." â€" Nenci, pp. 9-10. "Piccolomini thus shows … the reasons for the success among humanists of the difficult text of the Mechanica: one draws from the text an intuition of a movement of rotation made up of constraints and forces rather than rigorous geometric analyses." â€" Walter Roy Laird, ?Sophie Roux, Mechanics and Natural Philosophy before the Scientific . (2008), page 159. "Piccolomini in effect elevates mechanics from an art to a science, by arguing that it is the contemplation of the causes and principles behind machines that is properly called mechanics. The use of these machines to produce useful effects is distinguished from the theory on which they are based, and his practical aspect is classified separately under the sellularian or humble arts." â€" Helen Hattab, Descartes on Forms and Mechanisms, (2009), pp. 95-6. Alessandro Piccolomini (1508-1578), student of the classics in both Padua and Rome, a master of Petrarchan style, was a member of the noble Piccolomini family that included two Popes. He came to reside in Padua, becoming established as professor of philosophy at the university. Though he was not an astronomer, he is best known for producing in 1540 the first star atlas, De la Sfera del Mondo. He was a prolific writer of works relating to philosophy, mathematics, mathematical astronomy, comedies, sonnets, literature and translated several works (Ovid's Metamorphoses, Aristotle's Poetics and Rhetoric, part of Vergil's, Aeneid) from Lain into Italian. See: article by Ronald Brashear, within: Thomas Hockey (ed.), Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, II, pp. 904-5. See: Rufus Suter, "The Scientific Work of Alessandro Piccolomini," ISIS, 60, pp. 210-222. FULL TITLE: In Mechanicas Quaestiones Aristotelis, Paraphrasis paulo quidem plenior.

      Norimbergae (Nürnberg) apud Iohan. Petreium, 1547. - 8vo (ca. 20,4x15,5 cm), späterer Ganzledereinband, 3 unnumerierte Blätter, 309 numerierte Blätter, mit einem Holzschnittportrait des Verfassers, zahlreichen Holzschnittdiagrammen und einigen gestochenen Initialen. VD16 C 941. Der italienische Renaissance-Humanisten Gerolamo Cardano (1501 -1576) arbeitete von 1526 bis 1532 als Arzt in Saccolongo und wurde 1541 Rektor des Kollegiums der Mailänder Ärzte. Ab 1543 hielt er in Mailand Vorlesungen über Medizin und 1544 nahm er einen Ruf als Professor für Medizin in Pavia an. Durch seine seit 1539 von dem Nürnberger Verleger Johannes Petreius gedruckten Werke, die zum Teil in Frankreich und der Schweiz nachgedruckt wurden, gelangte er zu europaweiter Berühmtheit. 1570 wurde er von der Inquisition inhaftiert und nach drei Monaten Haft unter Auflagen wieder freigelassen. Neue Ergebnisse zu den Gründen von Cardanos Verhaftung brachte die Öffnung der Archive der Inquisition in den 2000er Jahren. Ausschlaggebend für die Inhaftierung dürfte danach ein Gutachten zu seiner Schrift De rerum varietate gewesen sein. Ein anonymer Inquisitor warf ihm darin ketzerische Aussagen vor. Gerolamo Cardano gilt als einer der letzten großen Universalgelehrten der Renaissance mit einer erstaunlichen internationalen Bekanntheit zu Lebzeiten, die zu jener Zeit sonst eher bei prominenten Künstlern und Literaten zu beobachten war. In einem Ganzledereinband wohl des 18. Jahrhundert. Durchgehend etwas braunfleckig, ein größerer Teil der Seiten mit transparentem Überzug zur Stabilisierung der Seiten bezogen. Das Blatt 8 verso mit stärkerem Papier der Zeit hinterlegt. 1 Blatt mit Fehlstellen. Solides, fachmännisch restauriertes Exemplar. Enthält u.a. ca. 190 Horoskop-Diagramme in Holzschnitt. A collection of five books by Girolamo Cardano. Some of the statements contained in these tests will lead to his arrest by the Holy Inquisition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Late nineteen century binding, important later notes by José de Castillo (...) (1790?) on first blanc, second back and last blanc. The work is illustrated by precious engravings. Parchment season, lomo labeled. Very good example. Important volume containing four works by the Belgian philologist and humanist Justo Lipsio. The first, "De militia romana", is divided into two parts, and the second has its own title entitled "Analecta sive observationes reliquae ad militiam et hosce libros". This second cover presents slight typographic changes in the mark of the workshop of the Plantino. The work is about the Roman army, taken from the comments of the Roman historian Polybius, and contains valuable engravings and some xylographic engraving. To this first work follows "De amphiteatro", also in two parts, with a second titled: "Of amphiteatris quae extra Romam libellus, in quo form eorum aliquot et typi". It is an interesting text on the Roman amphitheater of the city and on some others that are outside of it, with extraordinary engravings calcográficos, some of great size. The third work, "Saturnalium sermonum" deals with the Roman feasts called saturnal and in particular, gladiatorial fights. Here, too, there are slight differences in the typesetting of the Plantino. And the fourth and final work, "Admiranda, sive de magnitudine Romana libri quattuor." Tertia ed. correctior, auctiórque.

Roman Empire. Military art. Army.Provenance Important / José de CastilloDès 10 ans, José del Castillo commence à assister à des classes de dessin des classes préparatoires à l'Académie royale des beaux-arts de San Fernando. Avec tant d'application qu'en 1751, le ministre José de Carvajal y Lancaster lui offre une bourse pour étudier à Rome sous la direction de Corrado Giaquinto.En 1753, le roi Ferdinand VI d'Espagne appelle Giaquinto à Madrid, lequel y va, accompagné de José del Castillo. Del Castillo reprend ses études à l'Académie de San Fernando et gagne la médaille d'or au concours de 1756, ainsi que la bourse officielle à Rome en 1758, où il part, tout jeune marié.Il coïncide là-bas avec Juan de Villanueva, qui voyage en Italie, puis rentre à Madrid en 1764.Il travaille alors comme peintre de cartons pour tapisserie à la Fabrique royale de tapisserie. Cela devient ça principale profession, avec quelques incursions dans la peinture religieuse, comme l'Abrazo de Santo Domingo y San Francisco (1783) dans la basilique de Saint-François-le-Grand, ou l'illustration de livres, dont les célèbres dessins réalisés pour l'édition du Don Quichotte d'Ibarra (1780).Le 6 mars 1785, il est élu Académicien de mérite à l'Académie de San Fernando, mais échoue dans son ambition de devenir Peintre de la Chambre du Roi. Il essaye également de devenir directeur de la Fabrique royale de tapisserie, avec le soutien du comte de Floridablanca, mais Ramón Bayeu, porté en très haute estime à la Cour, s'y oppose. Peu après la mort de celui-ci, il essaye à nouveau, mais sans plus de succès.Del Castillo est reconnu pour sa délicatesse, son élégance, ses couleurs agréables et rythmées, son tracé impeccable. Il a été très prolifique, aussi bien en huile sur toile, en gravure qu'en carton1.Il est parfois considéré comme appartenant plus aux courants européens qu'aux espagnols, représentés par Francisco de Goya et les frères Ramón et Francisco Bayeu.Sont particulièrement remarquables ses cartons pour tapisserie, dont certains sont d'une taille énorme et toujours présents dans le Musée d'histoire de Madrid et (es) de Madrid, ainsi qu'au ministère de l'Éducation (où sont notamment conservés El jardín del Buen Retiro, El estanque del Buen Retiro, La pradera de San Isidro). Une collection de peintures est également conservée à l'Académie de San Fernando2.Il réalise en 1784 une gravure sur le thème de la fuite en Égypte copiant un tableau de Luca Giordano qui se trouvait dans le Palais du Buen Retiro.

La Lande, p. 65-66, solo ediciones latinas, y Houzeau, 4836, solo 1548.- // Traduccion realizada por el propio Mizauld, apasionado de la Medicina, la Agricultura y la Astronomía, de su primera obra, publicada en latín el año anterior, 'Phænomena, sive aeria Ephemerides' (Paris, 1546)(1). En ella, con la fama de ser el primer libro de Meteorología publicado en francés -y, al parecer, la primera vez que aparece el término météorologie ('o, si prefieres, comentarios de todas las cosas del Aire') en esta lengua-(2), Mizauld instruía mediante aforismos, para que fuera fácil recordar las enseñanzas, cómo podían hacerse previsiones meteorológicas a partir de los datos del entorno, mediante la observación de los astros, del cielo y del paisaje, o del comportamiento de plantas y animales. No siendo una obra científica al no acudir a ningún tipo de instrumentación ni a la realización de experimentos, sí lo es en cambio al concebir que determinados fenómenos naturales eran concomitantes a diferentes situaciones climatológicas y al estimular que semejante conocimiento era de gran utilidad para que agricultores o marineros, por ejemplo, pudieran hacer previsiones para la mejor gestión de sus labores. En una deliciosa dedicatoria a Catalina de Médicis, en la que hace un bello panegírico de la bondad de que las obras de sentido práctico se tradujesen a la lengua materna ('o, si se prefiere, del país'), porque en griego o en latín eran de nula utilidad para las gentes comunes, resume bien el propio contenido del libro (en francés, en el original): "vuestra majestad podrá conocer (.) todas las mutaciones del aire y los cambios del tiempo, que puedan sobrevenir doquiera que se encuentre, por ciertos signos, evidentes para todos, que aparecen en el cielo, en el aire, en el agua o sobre la tierra. En el Cielo, por las cosas que pueden verse en torno al sol, la luna y las estrellas cuando se levantan o se acuestan. En el Aire, por los colores de las nubes, su situación y su materia, así como por los vientos, relámpagos, truenos y cosas semejantes.

         Las obras de Boscán y algunas de Garcilasso dela Vega. Repartidas en quatro libros. Ademas que ay muchas añadidas, uan aqui mejor corregidas mas coplidas y en mejor orden que asta agora han sido impressas.

      Roma, Antonio Salamanca 1547 - 8vo (153x98 mm). 271, (1 blank) leaves. Woodcut imperial coat-of-arms on the title-page. Contemporary or slightly later vellum over boards, spine with two small raised bands and inked title (below the title are the capital letters "ICO"; a later shelf label is pasted on the front cover). On the title-page later manuscript ownership's inscription: "Bibliot. Coll. Regien.". Loss of vellum in the lower part of the spine, small stain on the front cover, title-page a bit soiled, slightly browned throughout, insignificant dampstains in the upper margins of the last 10 leaves, but all in all a very good, genuine copy. RARE EDITION, probably the sixth or seventh, printed in Rome by the Spanish typographer Marco Antonio Martínez, better known as Antonio Salamanca from the name of his hometown, who was active in Rome between 1519 and 1547. Despite the corrections and additions announced in the title-page, the edition is a faithful copy of the first imprints of the work. The first edition of Boscán e Garcilaso's poetical works appeared in Barcelona on March 1543, followed by over twenty reprints issued before the end of the century, which testify the incredible success of this collection: Lisbon, 1543; Medina, 1544, 1553; Antwerp, 1544, [1545], 1550, 1554, 1556, 1569, 1570, 1576, 1597; Toledo, 1547, 1558; Lyons, 1549; Venice, 1553; Valladolid, 1553; Estella, 1555; Barcelona, 1554; Granada, 1575; Alcalá de Henares, 1575; Zaragoza, 1577. Boscán's poems are divided into three books: the first comprises his work of medieval tradition; the second contains ninety-two sonnets and ten "canciones' in the Italian style; book three includes the Epístola a Mendoza, the allegorical poem Octava rima and the famous poem Leandro, based on the ancient Greek fable of "Hero and Leander' (cf. W. Boutcher, "Who taught thee rhetoricke to deceive a maid?": Christopher Marlowe's Hero and Leander, Juan Boscán's Leandro, and renaissance vernacular humanism, in: "Comparative literature", Eugene, University of Oregon, 52, 1, 2000, pp. 11-52). Book four contains Garcilaso's poems. Under the influence of Petrarch and the Italian Renaissance poets as well as the Classical authors, Garcialso wrote elegies (Elegías), eclogues (églogas, including an égloga a Boscán), canzoni (Canciones), and sonnets (Sonetos), in which he admirably adapts the eleven-syllable line to the Spanish language. The collection was published after Boscán's death by his widow, Ana Girón de Rebolledo. Garcilaso had died in 1536 and Boscán had been charged with the task of editing some of his friend's works together with his own. But he also died a few months before the book was issued on March 1543. The main innovation of this collection and one of the major reasons of its big impact (with all the reactions that followed) lies in the idea itself of publishing together the two most innovative Spanish poets of the time. Despite its posthumous appearance, the edition was carefully prepared by Boscán. Even a most superficial analysis of the first 1543 edition (which is strictly followed by the present) reveals a clear editorial strategy. The disposition of the texts reflects, in an organic and consistent manner, the different stages of Boscán and Garcilaso poetic career, from the eight-syllable poems of the old Spanish tradition (which are almost completely neglected in the collection) to the newly-introduced Italian verse forms, and shows Boscán's aim of giving to the collection an international character and the dignity of the Classical and Italian poetry. The collection opens with a programmatic poem to the Duchess of Soma (not accidentally a woman; Boscán's detractors accused his poetry of being for women, "ser para mujeres"), in which Boscán expresses his judgment of the previous Spanish lyrics and explains his poetical program, shared with Garcialso, that was followed for more than a century by most of the Iberian poets (cf. P. Ruiz Pérez, Las "Obras' de Boscán y Garcilaso: modelo editorial y mod [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         ANITII MANLII SEVERINI BOETHI INTER LATINOS ARISTOTELIS INTERPRETES ET AETATE PRIMI, ET DOCTRINA PRAECIPUI DIALECTICA

      Venice, 1547. Quarto in marbled boards, vellum spine with title added in black ink and presumed collection number 205 at the tail of spine. Text block is mostly clean with 16th cent. annotations and some water staining to the final page and colophon. All in all an attractive early printing of an important work Roman philosopher Boethius (ca. 480-524) wrote his most famous work, THE CONSOLATION OF PHILOSOPHY, while in prison in Pavia for conspiring against Theodoric, Emperor of Rome, who had named Boethius consul (510) and head of government and court services (520). In 524 he was executed without trial. Boethius's translations of and commentaries on Aristotle included in the present text are credited with re-introducing the philosopher to scholars in the 16th century eager to read writings from the Greek golden age. A millennium later with the advent of printing, early versions such as this presented Aristotle to a wider Renaissance audience and helped to establish the present cannon of classical texts.

A French translation of Pasquino in estasi nuovo, a satirical dialogue between Pasquille and Marfoire in the manner of Lucian, celebrated for its attacks on the papacy and allusions to contemporaries and to contemporary events. The author studied at Turin where he was converted to Lutheranism at the age of twenty. He taught at Turin, Milan, Pavia, and other North Italian towns, and was arrested and imprisoned by the Inquisition. (The 'Dialogue de Probus' appended here describes his escape in 1537 from an archiepiscopal prison.) In 1542 Curione fled to Lausanne and in 1547 moved to Basel, where he was given the chair of Latin eloquence. His bibliography includes numerous pedagogical treatises, commentaries on Cicero's orations and rhetorical works, on Persius and Juvenal, and translations of Appian and Aeschines. Curione allowed two versions of this work to circulate in manuscript for several years and apparently did not supervise the passage of either into print. In 1543 a German translation 'auß Welscher Sprach' of the second, larger version was pub­lished by Philip Ulhart at Augsburg. 2 The next year both versions were printed in Latin at Basel and the second version was printed in Latin by Jean Girard at Geneva. Editions in Italian of both versions followed in 1545-1546. Our book published in 1547 is a French translation of the second Latin version.

Woodcut illustrations in text. Full recent leather, blindstamped on both covers, spine with raised bands. Cartoné slipcase. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS COMPENDIUM OF ASTRONOMY, ASTROLOGY, COSMOGRAPHY AND PHILOSOPHY.; the last section being reminiscent of Aristotle. The entire text consists of a dialogue between Etrusco, who asks the questions, and Vandalio, who supplies the answers. There is a curious woodcut map of the globe which shows part of the east coast of America, and the north of the "Austral" land, in addition to Europe, Asia and Africa.Alonso de Fuentes was a Spanish man of letters, famous mainly as the editor of cantos, religious or historical folksongs. This work is entirely different: it is a compendium of natural sciences, including cosmology, geography, astrology and astronomy. It is written in the form of a dialogue, in a curious and original manner. Questions are asked in the form of Italian verse, the answers are given in Castilian prose. The two partners in the dialogue are identified as Ethrusco (Italian) and Vandalio (Castilian). One is printed in Roman letters, the other in a Gothic book type. The 17 woodcut diagrams illustrate the contents of the book. There are maps of the world (one of them giving an idea of the Azores and America), the signs of the Zodiac, the course of the planets, eclipses of the sun and the moon; one map gives the course of the Nile with its probable sources, and so on.

Educated at the universities of Salamanca and Bologna, he read widely in law, medicine and theology.

         Psalmi Davidici Septvaginta Qvinqve, in Lyricos Versvs, servata Ecclesiasticae versionis ueritate et Hebraerorum uarietate, redacti.

      Lutetiae Parisiorum cum priuilegio ad sexennium, per Nicolaum Diuitem uia Sacerdotum, ad divae Genouefes, sub insigni geminae anchorae, 1547. - in-8. 8ff. 148ff. (mal chiffrés 158). Demi-basane (modeste reliure du XIXs., frottée). Edition Originale extrêmement rare de la versification des Pseaumes de David par le grand humaniste Jean de Gaigny (mort en 1549). Cet érudit, chancelier de l'Université et premier aumônier de François Ier joua un rôle remarquable dans l'essor de la Renaissance en France, en retrouvant et publiant d'importants manuscrits anciens. Il avait fait installer une imprimerie dans sa propre maison, rue des Prêtres Saint-Etienne-du-Mont, que dirigeait son neveu Nicolas Leriche. Elle avait pour enseigne deux ancres en sautoir. Jean de Gaigny fit graver un caractère spécial pour cette imprimerie, inspiré de l'italique aldine qu'il admirait beaucoup, et dont il confia l'exécution à Charles Chiffin, un orfèvre tourangeau. Une note préliminaire dans le présent volume, souligne la nouveauté de ce caractère en France, et annonce différentes publications à venir dans cette officine où se vendaient également d'authentiques impressions vénitiennes des Aldes. Les ouvrages imprimés chez Jean de Gaigny ont été rarement décrits et semblent peu nombreux. En fait l'activité de l'atelier ne dura que deux ans, jusqu'à la mort du grand érudit (1549) qui demanda par testament à ce que les matrices et poinçons de ses caractères soient vendus. Reliure modeste mais bon exemplaire intérieurement de cette très rare impression particulière. Il a appartenu au littérateur Edouard Thomas Simon (1740-1818), latiniste émérite qui fut bibliothécaire des Cinq-Cent puis du Tribunat, et qui a inscrit sa signature sur la page de titre. Cachet ancien de la bibliothèque de Jules du Moulin. Manque au NUC.

         De verreezene Hippolytus, ontdekkende de natuur, eigenschappen, toomelooze hartstochten, onkuische liefde, en ydelheid der vrouwen. [...] Amsterdam, Jacob van Royen, 1711.

      "8º: * 8 (*1 + pi)1 A-T 8 (-T8, blanco?), gepag.: 302 pp. Gegraveerde titelpagina, 8 gegraveerde platen buiten collatie en 9 gravures in de tekst, alle ongesigneerd. Contemp. perkament, veel aantekeningen in zorgvuldig, vroeg 20ste-eeuws handschrift op schutbladen en in de marges, verder fraai exemplaar. Lit.: Brunet III-178; Bibl. Gay-Lemonnyer II-482; Graesse III-285 (alle de Latijnse uitgave); Buisman 834; ; Mateboer 1547; Muller 483; Scheepers I, 447; Waller 720"."Nederlandse vertaling van het oorspronkelijk in het Latijn geschreven 'Hippolytus redivivus', dat in 1644 ergens in Nederland - een impressum ontbreekt - is gedrukt. In 1645 verscheen de eerste Nederlandse vertaling. De anonieme schrijver van het werk doet zijn uiterste best om op elk bladzij zoveel mogelijk slechts over de vrouw te vertellen, waardoor hij in staat is een groot aantal pagina's prikkellectuur te produceren. Hippolytos is een figuur uit de Griekse mythologie; toen hij weigerde op de avances van zijn stiefmoeder Faidra in te gaan, draaide zij de zaken om en vertelde zijn vader Theseus dat hij haar te na was gekomen. Dat kostte Hippolytos het leven, want op verzoek van Theseus liet de god Poseidon hem dodelijk verongelukken. Deze geschiedenis is door Euripides, Seneca, Racine en Vondel (naar Seneca) in een treurspel verwerkt. Eén van de platen (tegenover p. 273) is volgens Muller een vrije reproductie naar een zeer oude volksprent (16e eeuw) genaamd Bigorne en Scherminkel, twee reusachtige monsterdieren, waarvan het eerste alleen goede mannen eet en bijster vet is; het andere eet alleen goede vrouwen en is .... zeer mager. Jacob van Royen was van 1671 tot 1717 in Amsterdam werkzaam als boekverkoper. In 1679 gaf hij 'De verreesen Hippolytus' voor het eerst uit, in 1710 gevolgd door een tweede, sterk vermeerderde druk. Dit is een titeluitgave van die uit 1710: alleen het jaartal op de titelpagina is verschillend. L2935"
