It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts , some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe. His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias.

Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

Libro de Jesus Hiio de Syrach, qu'es llamado, el Ecclesiastico. traduzido de Griego en lengua Castellana En Leon [i.e. Strassburg]: en Casa de Sebastian Grypho [i.e. Augustin Fries], 1550. First edition in Spanish of Ecclesiasticus. Small octavo (6 x 3 5/8 inches; 151 x 91 mm). [3], 109 leaves. With numerous woodcut initials.

"A native of Burgos educated at Louvain and Wittenberg, Francisco de Enzinas (1518-52) was a humanist scholar and Protestant convert who produced the first Spanish version of the New Testament, printed in 1543 in Antwerp. He formed a partnership with the Strassburg printer Augustin Fries to publish Spanish translations of Greek classics and the remainder of the Bible, of which he was only able to complete Psalms, Ecclesiasticus, Job, and Proverbs before his death. Baudrier VIII, 241 (not having seen or located a copy, citing Brunet supplement II, 712)" "Even before the complete edition of Castellio's Latin Bible appeared Enzinas, who had already produced a Spanish Bible [New Testament] in Antewerp (in 1543), had translated the Psalter, the Wisdom of Solomon, Jesus Sirach [present copy], and the book of Job into Spanish. All of these appeared with the false address 'En Leon, en casa de Sebastian Grypho', though they were in fact his translations from manuscript versions of Castellio's edition. Enzinas continued to work on his translations until his death on 30 December 1552. He had planned to have his Spanish Bible printed in Geneva, but this (fortunately for Calvin) never came to pass." (Gilly, Spanien und der Basler Buchdruck, pp. 342-9, 510-11.) Found in (Sebastian Castellio, 1515-1563: Humanist and Defender of Religious .By Hans R. Guggisberg, Bruce Gordon). "FRIES, Augustine: printer in Zurich and Strasburg began to print at the former place about 1540. In 1547 he printed two books in English by John Hooper [Heitz p. 39]. Soon after this he moved to Strasburg and there printed among other things several works in Spanish by Franzisco de Enzinas in 1550 and 1551 [Wiffen I pp 179 etc.]" (A Century of the English Book Trade: Short Notices of All Printers.

        Orlando Furioso dirigido al principe Don Philipe nuestro Señor, traduzido en Romance Castellano, por don Ieronymo de Urrea. An se añadido breves moralidades arto neceßarias a la declaratio[n] de los ca[n]tos, y la tabla es muy mas aumentada.

      Lyon, Macé Bonhomme for Guillaume Rouillé, 1550. - 4to. 436 p + [4]p index. Roman & italic letter. Text in 8-line heroic cantos printed in 2 columns. Title with printer’s device surrounded by grotesque architectural woodcut border, large oval woodcut portrait of author on recto of 2nd leaf, 46 woodcut illustrations in the text (50 x 90mm) with ornamental horizontal borders, 2 historiated woodcut initials. Renaissance style morocco binding gilt; top edge git (Pacchiotti,Torino). The influential first Spanish translation of the celebrated epic romance in octavos considered one of the greatest literary achievements of the Italian Renaissance. The final version of Ariosto’s parody of the chivalric legends of Charlemagne and the Arab invasions of France was published in Ferrara in 1532 to be translated into Spanish as early as 1549 by Jerónimo Jiménes de Urrea (c1510 — c1573), Aragonese writer and a distinguished soldier from Epila, Zaragoza. Urrea’s translation is an acknowledged major source for Cervantes’s Don Quixote which contains numerous references to Orlando Furioso. The 45 cantos are dedicated to King Philip II of Spain. It was first published at Antwerp in 1549 and is here offered in its second printing. The charming woodcuts showing heroic feats are impressions from blocks cut for the attractive Giolito editions (‘the first Ariosto illustrations of any artistic merit’ – see Mortimer, Italian 16th Century Books, I, 36). Top margins shaven, 2 quires toned, last leaves with light waterstain, margins of 2 leaves strengthened, otherwise a good copy with an early old ownership initial stamp in tailend margin of title.

        Das Heilig Judisch Land mit Ausztheilung der Zwolff Geschlechter

      Basilea 1550 - Esemplare pubblicato nella "‘Cosmographia oder beschreibung Aller Lander.", edita a Basilea nel 1588. Per la realizzazione di questa mappa, Munster si basò su quelle di Mercator e Ziegler, arricchendola con numerose vignette. L’orientazione insolita della mappa vede l’Ovest in alto con la linea costiera che corre da sud-ovest a nord-est. la zona litoranea, è notevolmente accurata per il periodo, e va da Sidone e la terra dei Fenici nel nord, a Gaza nel sud. Gli ultimi nove accampamenti degli israeliti erranti durante l'esodo sono mostrati insieme con le divisioni tribali. Il cartiglio contiene un indice delle località che appaiono sulla mappa, con ogni voce in grassetto seguito dal corsivo per i nomi alternativi con cui il sito era conosciuto. Xilografia, finemente colorata a mano, in ottime condizioni. Published in ‘Cosmographia oder beschreibung Aller Lander.’, Basle 1588. Munster based this map of the Holy Land on maps by Mercator and Ziegler and filled it with numerous woodcut vignettes. The unusual orientation of the map places west at the top with the coastline running southwest to northeast. The shoreline is remarkably accurate for the period, covering from Sidon and the land of the Phoenicians in the north, to Gaza in the south. The last nine encampments of the wandering Israelites during the Exodus are shown along with the tribal divisions. The cartouche contains an index of place names that appear on the map with each boldfaced entry followed in italics by the alternative names by which the site was known. Woodcut, with fine colour, very good condition. Dimensioni 345 365mm

Para la portada, Masséna, V, 2096 y 2226.- // Publicada por primera vez en la inencontrable edición napolitana de 1521, el tratado de della Valle conoció más de 20 ediciones en 100 años, traduciéndose en 1529 y 1554 al francés y en 1620 y 1644 al alemán. Se ha sugerido que parte de la obra de Diego de Álava y Viamont, El perfeto capitan, instruido en la ciencia militar, y nueva ciencia de la artillería, impresa en 1590, pero escrita varios años antes, era una traducción, lo que pese a la semejanza del título no es cierto. La obra de della Valle, la primera en su género, está muy relacionada con que en el siglo XVI se produjeron dos drásticas novedades en lo que al arte militar se refiere. La primera, que el peso que haste entonces venía concediéndose a la caballería y a las batallas a campo abierto como el núcleo de las guerras cedió ante la importancia cobrada tanto por los pequeños asedios como por la infantería dotada de armas de fuego. La segunda, que la ciencia de las fortificaciones, que hasta entonces era materia propia de los tratados de arquitectura, pasó a ser una necesidad a desarrollar durante las acciones militares, no solo por los asedios (tanto para realizarlos como para resistirlos), sino también por la necesidad de considerar lo relacionado con la artillería y la balísitica: la presencia de los cañones obligaba a pensar en cómo hacer mayor daño en las fortalezas y, simultáneamente, en cómo fortificarse para minimizar los efectos de los cañonazos enemigos. Ambas circunstancias estaban relacionadas con que el XVI fue un siglo en el que los ejércitos 'nacionales' estaban dispersos en multitud de focos, de modo que los capitanes al mando en cada uno dependían de sus propios conocimientos técnicos para los necesarios planteamientos estratégicos. No en vano el siglo XVI verá la aparición de academias de oficiales, con la Mecánica y las Matemáticas como parte de las disciplinas en las que formarse. El tratado de della Valle no es propiamente ni un tratado de fortificaciones ni uno de artilleria, sino, como certeramente decía en el título, consejos para el desarrollo de las acciones militares reuniendo los conocimientos de los que debería disponer un oficial para mantener la disciplina, llevar a cabo asedios o defenderse contra ellos, combinar los ataques de tropas y de artillería o resistirlos, proteger a tropas y maquinaria en trincheras, etc., con ilustración de los medios necesarios. ¡Incluso ofrece un modelo de escafandra con tubo de respiración para atacar andando bajo el agua!

        Arte subtilissima, por la qual se enseña a escrevir perfectamente, hecho y experimentado, y agora; de nuevo añadido

      Saragossa, Pedro Bernúz, 1550 (23 July). The Arte subtilissima is the revised second edition of the first calligraphy and handwriting manual published in Spain. The woodblocks of the first edition (1548) are re-employed, except for three; twenty-four "Tablas mas estudiadas y mas esmeradas que antes" are added, and these enlarge the book by two gatherings (sixteen leaves). One of the new blocks is dated 1547, seven are dated 1550, and sixteen are undated. J.P.R. Lyell's complaint that Iciar's writing books were "thumbed out of existence" is validated by modern bibliographical tools: ten copies of the 1548 first edition, some just fragments, are recorded in public collections worldwide. Our 1550 second edition is less rare, but equally difficult to find complete and in good condition: twelve copies are recorded public collections, of which at least four are incomplete. [img-2371-left-large_default] Fig. 1. A monument of the Spanish Renaissance ( height of binding 197 mm) Iciar, Juan de Durango (Viscaya) circa 1522-after 1572 Logroño? Arte subtilissima, por la qual se enseña a escrevir perfectamente, hech o y experimentado, y agora; de nuevo añadido. Saragossa, Pedro Bernúz, 1550 (23 July) quarto (194 × 133 mm), (86)ff. signed A 6 B-L 8 , not foliated or paginated. Woodcut compartment on title-page incorporating insignia of the dedicatee Philip (later Philip ii, King of Spain), fine woodcut portrait of the author aged 25 (folio A4 verso), each letterpress text page enclosed by a four-piece woodcut border (of which there are four designs), full-page woodcut writing samples (some cut white-on-black using criblé techniques), every block (or group of blocks) signed by the cutter Juan de Vingles either in full, with his mark of a sacred heart surmounted by a crown (in one design supported by the lion of Lyons), or his initials idv ; devices of the printers Jorge Coci and Pedro Bernúz on final leaf. 1 provenance Earls of Macclesfield, Shirburn Castle, embossed stamp on title-page and following two leaves, exlibris South Library dated 1860 on paste-down -- Sotheby's, 'The Library of the Earls of Macclesfield, Part Six: Science P-Z plus Addenda', London, 26 October 2005, lot 2237 Repaired when rebound in the eighteenth-century: title-leaf laid down, margins of folios F5 and F6 repaired, marginal paper repairs in other leaves (occasionally touching borders and signature letters), slight staining; however, for a book of this kind, in unusually fine state of preservation. binding eighteenth-century English calf; gilt frame on covers, spine gilt in compartments. The Arte subtilissima is the revised second edition of the first calligraphy and hand­writing manual published in Spain. Like the Italian manuals on which it is modelled, it shows a wide range of styles and alphabets, including the chancery italic, book hands (roman and italic), commercial hands, Roman capitals (including a set copied with few modifications from Dürer), the gothic script, the rotunda, capitals suitable for illumination, monograms and Greek and Hebrew alphabets. The work was an immediate success (six editions appeared before 1566) and continues to be esteemed to this day: 'There can be no doubt that Yciar's book has to be counted among the finest calligraphic copy-books to be found anywhere at any time'. 2 [img-2368-left-large_default] Fig. 2.LeftPortrait of the author cut by Juan de Vingles. Page height 194 mm The author, the Basque Juan de Iciar, worked from about 1547 until about 1573 at Saragossa, a centre of culture and the cradle of Spanish printing, as a teacher (of writing and arithmetic) and as a copyist, particularly of choir and service-books for church use, which he wrote in a gothic rotunda style (he is shown on the title-page writing a formal alphabet in a book with one hand and holding a choir book in the other). His aim was to teach children as well as adults, and in the instructions which accompany his specimens, Iciar - influenced by his fellow countrymen Juan Vives and Alejo Vanegas - considers various pedagogical problems, such as whether children should be taught reading before writing, or simultaneously (folios A5-6), and recommends as teaching aids sheets of tin ('hojas de Flandres', D5 verso - the idea is similar to that underlying the use of slate and chalk: the child rubs out mistakes with his fingers, and becomes less inhibited in his writ­ing) and alphabets carved in tablets of wood or metal ('una tablilla de box, o de metal muy lisa', L4 verso - an apparatus mentioned by Quintilian, endorsed by Erasmus and Palatino: the pupil moves a pen in grooves cut into the letters, until the shapes and movements become natural). The second edition, as befitted its new dedication, to the prince Philip, Regent of Spain, was revised as an elegant picture book. The author, or perhaps his printer, lightened the text: some instructions (notably the 'Trata de letra Aragonesa', on folio E8 verso in the 1548 edition) were abbreviated, some recipes ('para bermellon... para hazer tornasol... para hazer verde lino... agua gomada; y para destemper la clara del hueuo... para preparar la glossa', folios B6 recto-B8 verso in the 1548 edition) were excised, and the concluding 'Trato del modo como este libro se hizo', in which Iciar described how the blocks were made for his book (folio I7 in the 1548 edition), was deleted. A new 'Epistola Al Lector' and Latin verses in praise of the author by 'Blasij Spesij Doctoris Medici' are introduced. [img-2369-left-large_default] Fig. 3.LeftOne of the new blocks cut by Juan de Vingles for this second edition. RightA block reprinted from the first edition (1548). Page height 194 mm [img-2370-left-large_default] Fig. 4. 'Letras de Compas para Illvminadores', cut by Juan de Vingles. Page height 194 mm The woodblocks of the first edition are re-employed in the second edition, except for three (two models of a 'Letra Gotica Echada' and a 'Trata de la letra tratizada', folios D5 recto-D5 verso, D6 verso in the 1548 edition). To their number, twenty-four 'Tablas mas estudiadas y mas esmeradas que antes' ('Epistola Al Lector', A3 verso) were added, and these enlarge the book by two gatherings (sixteen leaves). One of the new blocks is dated 1547, seven are dated 1550, and sixteen are undated. 3 In the new prefatory letter, Iciar claims that certain mistakes ('algunas faltas') in the old blocks have been corrected, and that other blocks have been improved by the addition of flourishes ('muchos rasgos '). The corrections seem to be no more than several erasures of the date '1548' and substitution of '1550' (e.g. C2 recto, C2 verso). The alteration of old blocks to enhance their decorative effect was more systematic; a typical embellishment is the stippling of the background of blocks printed white-on-black (e.g. C6 verso, C7 recto, E6 verso, H3 recto, H3 verso). This work, together with the presentation of Iciar's text within broad frames of newly-cut border ornament (two pieces are dated 1550), and the introduction of an attractive sub-title (a block from the Jorge Coci-Pedro Bernúz stock, in use since 1548; see reproduction by Sánchez p.354), make this one of the most beautiful books of the Spanish Renaissance. Iciar's engraver was Juan de Vingles (1498-circa 1552), a son of the Lyonese printer Jean i de Vingles (active 1493-1513), whose device of the initials iv within a crowned heart he adopted. Juan is first recorded in Spain in 1534, when he cut a block for the printer Carlos Amorós of Barcelona; 4 in 1535, he was working at Saragossa for Pierre Hardouyn; in 1547-1550 he was collaborating with Juan de Iciar; and he is last heard of in 1552, working as a publisher at Pau in the south of France, in partnership with Henri Poivre. He took his inspiration from many sources, including Lyonese editions of Horae and Alciati's Emblems, printed in 1548. 5 The woodcut border enclosing the title is from the block utilised for the 1548 edition, printed by Bartholomé de Nágera 'a costas de Alonso de Frailla, y Iuan de Iciar, y Iuan de Vingles', on 22 August 1548 (Sánchez no. 278). The fine and highly original woodcut por­trait of Iciar also was cut for the first edition, and it reappears in Iciar's Arithmetica prac­tica printed at Saragossa by Pedro Bernúz 'a costa del auctor y de Miguel de Cepilla [Zapila] mercador d'libros', on 16 February 1549 (Sánchez no. 285). It seems that Miguel de Zapila was involved also in publishing the 1550 Arte subtilissima: the title-page of the copy reproduced by Cotarelo y Mori (pl. 72) has his imprint 'A costa de Miguel Cepilla mercader de libros' added in the lower margin. J.P.R. Lyell's complaint that Iciar's writing books were 'thumbed out of existence' 6 is vali­dated by modern bibliographical tools: perhaps ten copies of the 1548 first edition, some just fragments, are recorded in public collections worldwide. 7 Our 1550 second edition is less rare, but equally difficult to find complete and in good condition.
