[Luther, Martin].
O. O., um 1550.. Deutsche und lateinische Handschrift auf Papier. (14) SS., 1 w. Bl. (fol. 175-182). Geheftet. 4to.. Unbekannter, annähernd zeitgenössischer Textzeuge für den verschollenen Brief Martin Luthers, in dem der Reformator seinem Freund Graf Albrecht von Mansfeld von den Verhandlungen auf dem Wormser Reichstag berichtete. Luthers Brief wurde noch im Spätsommer 1521 mehrfach gedruckt (VD 16, L 5470-73), jedoch, wie der Adressat auf mehrfache Anfrage Herzog Georgs des Bärtigen (der gehört hatte, er sei im Brief angegriffen worden) zugeben mußte, "mit Veränderung". Die im Druck ausgelassene Stelle, die Herzog Georg aufgebracht hat, wird von der Weimarer Kritischen Gesamtausgabe ergänzt nach einer in manchen Details ungenauen Kanzlistenabschrift, die sich im Dresdner Archiv überliefert hat (Loc. 10299, 19b-21b). Die hier nun vorliegende Abschrift steht dem genaueren Text der Drucke näher, enthält jedoch den dort fehlenden, sonst nur in Dresden erhaltenen Text über den "wütenden" Herzog Georg und stellt somit die textgetreuste Überlieferung des vollständigen Briefs dar, mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit noch nach dem heute verlorenen Original kopiert: "Das ich aber zcu E. G. nicht kommen bin, ist meyn schult nicht. Ich muss mich lassen eynthun eyn zceit lang, weyß selbst nicht wye es ist bestellet, und alßo muß ich ander Leut rath hir innen, wye woll ungerne volgen.

Münster Sebastian, 1488-1552,Cos
Engelland/Albion, ,1550. Engelland/Albion, anno 1550, map, Sebastian Münster, woodcut, size of the leaf: 32x40 cm., brownish, waterstained on margins, small cracs, only on margins, one restored tear on upper margin (5 cm.). The second of Munster's maps of the British Isles, this important woodcut has North at the left-hand side of the page enabling a larger scale to be used than would have been possible with North at the top. A very considerable advance on any of the earlier maps, it had a very wide circulation, being issued in over twenty-five separate publications of Munster's Geographia and Cosmographia from 1540 until 1588, when an entirely new block was cut for the later editions. More than fifty rivers and some seventy or more named towns are shown, most for the first time on a printed map. The panel in the top left corner gives 'Interpretationes' of the Latin names into English whilst the Scottish flag is shown firmly planted in the sea! On the first edition of the map the text on the verso was contained within two pillars surmounted by a decorative archway. Identification of various issue dates is practically impossible without comparing loose maps with the complete dated atlases. In the late 1970's this map was still easily obtainable. Surprise is often expressed that North is not always shown at the top of the sheet on this, and various other, maps. Two reasons have been suggested for this: many of the very early maps were drawn in religious foundations and it is to be expected that East would be given prominence at the top - the Hereford World Map being an exampl … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRIPPA VON NETTESHEIM (Heinrich Cornelius)

[Lyon, Marcellin et Godefroy Beringen, ca 1550].. 2 volumes in-8 plein maroquin rouge, dos a nerfs ornes de caissons cloisonnes et fleuronnes, pieces de titre et de tomaison de maroquin, triple filets d'encadrement sur les plats avec fleurons d'angle, tranches dorees (rel. du XVIIIe s., petits accrocs aux mors et coif.), [24], 592 p. et [593] a 1193 (mal chiffre 1139), 44 p. d'index (le dernier f. est double), portrait de l'auteur au verso du titre, lettrines, figures gravees sur bois, leg. rouss. uniformes. Seconde et derniere partie ("Operum Pars Posterior"), en deux volumes, des oeuvres collectives d'Agrippa von Nettesheim, probablement livree independamment de la premiere. Selon la savante etude de Auguste Pros ('Corneille Agrippa: sa vie, ses oeuvres', note XXXI, p. 519-521), cette edition, imprimee en caracteres italiques, serait la plus ancienne des editions collectives d'Agrippa et "le prototype" des editions posterieures. "Edition rarissime, de toutes la meilleure et la plus complete. Elle est imprimee en caracteres italiques de meme grosseur partout, ne porte point de date d'impression et a, au verso du titre, un portrait grave sur bois de Corn. Agrippa" (Caillet, I, p. 12-13, n°84). Ces particularites la distinguent d'une contrefacon posterieure en 1156 p. portant la meme adresse. Le premier volume renferme, entre autres, le 'De Incertudine', suivi de 'In Artem brevem Raymundi Lulli commentaria' illustre de figures sur bois, du 'Liber de triplici ratione cognoscendi Deum' ainsi que le 'De Nobilitate & Praecellentia Foeminei sex … [Click Below for Full Description]

The last 3 texts are published here for the first time. It is "a valuable book of reference on the history of ancient measures. The book is also valuable to the student of Roman and Greek numerals, and of the various symbols of measures. Such works explain the origin of certain systems of measures employed before the metric system was developed, and of such symbols as are still used by apothecaries" (Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 171-73). Agricola also discusses the value of metals of all kinds and of money both in ancient and modern times. Title with small paper repair, two leaves with marginal repair. Some old library stamps as well as a release stamp. A very clean copy. Kress p. 123; Adams A.344..

Neuw India/Arabia/Persia/China-Cathay, ,1550. Neuw India/Arabia/Persia/China-Cathay,anno 1550, Münster Sebastian, edited by Sebastian Münster, in Cosmographia, german edition, "Neuw India/mit vilen anstossenden lendern/besunder Scychia/Parchia/Arabia/Persia etc." (1st Printed Map of Asia) Fine example of the first printed map of the Asia, by Sebastian Munster, from the 1550 edition of Munster's Cosmographia. The map shows Asia from the Caspian Sea and Persian Gulf to the Pacific. The Pacific Ocean shows an archipelagus of 7448 islands, a forerunner to the better understanding of Southeast Asia, which is largely unrecognizeable, although Java Minor and Major, Porne (Borneo), Moluca and several other islands are named. The map does not include Japan, which appears on the map of America. The northeastern coast of Asia is also omitted. Although largely based on Ptolemy's work, the map incorporates some of the more recent Portuguese discoveries. The outlines of the Indian subcontinent, between the Indus and the Ganges rivers are now in a more recognizable form, with "Zaylon" (Sri Lanka) correctly shown as an island. The Portuguese outpost sof Goa and Calicut, the first place where Vasco da Gama landed in 1497, are depicted. Further to the east "Taprobana" is also designated as "Sumatra.". The Portugese trading port of "Malaqua" is shown. Java is depicted as two separate islands. "Moloca," center of the spice island trade and the object of considerable conflict between Spain and Portugal is shown.

Colon, Hernando.
Spanien, c. 1550.. Spanische Handschrift auf Pergament. 24,7 x 28,5 cm (Schriftspiegel 16 x 21 cm). 2 Sp. 16 Zln. Mit großer Initiale L in roter, grüner und blauer Deckfarbe vor Goldgrund. Verso mit großer Miniatur sowie reichem Rankenwerk in Deckfarben und Gold.. Die "Historia del Almirante", die Lebensgeschichte des Christoph Kolumbus, soll um 1530 von seinem Sohn Hernando Colon (1487-1539) niedergeschrieben worden sein. Die Originalhandschrift ist verloren. Ein erster Druck erschien 1571 in italienischer Sprache. Die spanische Druckfassung von 1749 ist lediglich eine Rückübersetzung (vgl. Sabin 14674). Daher weicht sie an vielen Stellen von der hier vorliegenden Abschrift, die die Urfassung wiedergeben dürfte, erheblich ab. Nach dem Stil der Rankeninitiale mit dünnem Fleuronee (stark abgerieben) zu schließen, ist das Blatt unseres Manuskripts wohl im mittleren 16. Jahrhundert entstanden. Der Text beginnt mit "Los rebeldes perseverando en su mal animo el Almirante resolvio enviar contre essos al Prefecto su hermano que con buenas palabras sgredviese a juicio y arrepentimento pero con compania hastante para que si quisiesen onfendere oudiese resistirlos" (in der späteren Druckfassung: "Perseverando los rebeldes en su mal animo y proposito, llegaron hasta un cuarto de legua de los navios, a un pueblo de indios llamado Maima, donde despues edificaron los cristianos una cuidad llamada Sevilla.") - Das Blatt ist trotz des für Pergamentmanuskripte ungewöhnlichen Quartformats offenbar unbeschnitten.

Seltene Ausgabe seines beliebten, 1475 erstmals erschienenen Werkes, das besonders für die Berechnung von Horoskopen wichtig war. - Für die Deutung von Horoskopen spielt die Unterteilung des Himmels in Abschnitte, die sogenannten "Häuser", eine herausragende Rolle, da sie die Vorhersagen stark beeinflussen. Regiomontanus führt dazu eine selten gebrauchte Zählung der Häuser, beginnend am Ostpunkt des Horizonts, ein und berechnet die vorliegenden Tafeln. Mit ihrer Hilfe lassen sich die Häusergrenzen jeweils exakter bestimmen. Mathematisch gesehen handelt es sich dabei um eine Anleitung und Tafeln zur Umrechnung sphärischer Koordinaten. - "Dieses 'Tabulae directionum' genannte Werk enthält in der Hauptsache die Tafeln zur Berechnung der Häusergrenzen mit den zugehörigen Gebrauchsanweisungen. Im 14. Abschnitt kam er auf die verschiedenen Arten der Häuserberechnung zu sprechen. Unter Auslassung der ältesten und einfachsten Art, nämlich den Tierkreis in 12 gleiche Teile... zu teilen, welches Verfahren sogar noch Cardano anwendete, beschrieb er die 3 wichtigsten Einteilungen des Himmels... zugleich lieferte er alle Tafeln, die zur Berechnung eines Horoskopes, abgesehen von den Planetenörtern, nötig waren und lehrte in den Erklärungen an Hand von Beispielen die Benützung dieser Tafeln" (Zinner). - Regiomontanus war Professor für Astronomie und u.a. beteiligt an der von Sixtus VI. geplanten Kalenderreform. - Gestochenes Exlibris.

Caesar Augustae (Zaragoza), (à la fin:) Bartholomei a Nagera, 1550. - Petit in-8. 222ff. non chiffrés. Plein maroquin brun doublé, dos à nerfs orné, double filet doré sur les plats, doublure de maroquin havane guilloché à froid et encadré de filets et d'une guirlande dorée (reliure espagnole postérieure, vers 1950?). Précieuse édition de ce recueil des chants liturgiques qui étaient vocalisés pendant les processions des cisterciens espagnols. Elle fut imprimée à Saragosse avec la musique notée et peut être considérée comme la première édition complète du processionnal cistercien, car elle ne fut précédée que par un petit livret de 64 pages imprimé dans la même ville en 1516. Les processionnals sont des livres liturgiques contenant les paroles et la musique des chants qui accompagnaient les processions religieuses: essentiellement des répons, des antiennes et des hymnes. Il s'agit habituellement d'ouvrages manuscrits mais c'est principalement en Espagne, pays fortement attaché à la tradition des processions, que se développa au 16e siècle une activité éditoriale autour des processionnals. Le présent volume est rarissime. Nous n'avons pu en localiser que deux exemplaires complets (British Library et Washington University Pullman Library). En Espagne, les collections patrimoniales n'en répertorient que 4 exemplaires seulement, tous incomplets. Ordiozola, notamment, n'en connaissait aucun exemplaire complet.

Catholic church. Missale Romanum
[Spain, ca. 1550]. Folio extra (38.5 cm; 15"). [1] f. While the text of this leaf is standard for the celebration of the feast day of St. Blaise (i..e., Sanctus Blasius), its presentation on the vellum leaf is unique in its details, composition, and execution. The text is written in a later, modified version of Gothic rotunda in black and red ink, 21 lines per page. The recto has an illuminated, two-line capital D in blue on a gold field, a red flower in the center of the inner area of the D. The verso has an illuminated two-line capital P, in gold on a field of blue and white, the center of the open area of the P filled by a red flower. The inner margin of the recto verso is decorated with => a one-inch wide vine that ascends the entire length of the text block and is composed of leaves, flowers, and berries, this extending also a third of the way along the top and bottom margins; a colorful bird appears under the "laudem." Accomplished in red, green blue, and gray, this is accented with gilt. A very similar vine is found on the verso; but it incorporates a second bird and a large butterfly (or moth). Margin slightly irregular where once sewn in a binding. Red ink on verso (only) smeared where water fell on it and was carelessly wiped; birds, butterfly, and all but one flower of the border just fine. Overall a very nice and attractive leaf.

MACHIAVELLI, NICCOLO.:
No place or printer, 1550.. 1550, small 4to, approximately 210 x 145 mm, 8¼ x 5¾ inches, vignette portrait of the author on title page, at the rear are 7 double page plans of battles and encampments, Italian text, pages: 185 plus 18 unnumbered, bound in modern quarter blue morocco over marbled sides, raised bands, gilt motif in compartments and gilt lettering to spine, marbled endpapers and silk marker. Corners very slightly worn, a few pages lightly age-browned, an occasional small pale damp stain to margins. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. The present work is Part IV of an edition of Machiavelli's writings entitled Tutte le Opere all the volumes of which are dated 1550 on the title page with no place or printer (see Adams M9). Although Adams accepts the date of 1550, others believe that this edition was printed circa 1620 and possibly in Geneva (see Copac, copy held by Warwick University with identical collation). The Art of War (1521), one of only a few works of Machiavelli to be published during his lifetime, is a dialogue set in the Orti Oricellari, a garden in Florence where humanists gathered to discuss philosophy and politics. The principal speaker is Fabrizio Colonna, a professional condottiere and Machiavelli’s authority on the art of war. The basis for the book is the creation of a modern army.

Folio [33.5 x 21.5 cm], 404 pp., (12) ff., including architectural title, medallion portrait of Vasari on verso, and 83 woodcuts, of which 37 are full-page, plus 2 unsigned leaves which form upper extensions of the buildings pictured on A4v & Av5, bound following and preceding respective leaves (eg unmounted). Bound in 18th century half calf and patterned paper over boards, with calf corners, fore-edges marbled. Minor discoloration to small area of title. Ex libris of C.O. Riccati, most likely a relation of the mathematician Jacopo Francesco(1676-1754) on front end pastedown, and ownership inscription of the Jesuit college at Bologna on title. A few cuts printed to outer margin shaved. Pale waterstain to a few leaves, but generally a tall and fresh copy with good strikes of the cuts. Scarce, first illustrated edition and exceptionally fine copy of the first printed treatise on architecture (Latin editio princeps 1485), a learned amalgam of Vitruvius and 15th-century building practice generally regarded as establishing architecture as an independent subject. This is the second translation into Italian (first by Pietro Lauro, 1546), and its elegant Tuscan dialect and illustrations reflecting mid-sixteenth century building practice fundamentally fixed the text and its interpretation according to late Florentine Renaissance norms.

Sebastian MUENSTER (1488 - 1552)
Una nuova carta del mondo fu preparata da Sebastian Muenster nel 1550, per la sua Cosmographia; la carta, intagliata da David Kandel (monogramma in basso a sinistra), sostituiva quella apparsa nelle precedenti edizioni della Geographia e poi della Cosmographia. La mappa è basata su diverse fonti cartografiche, e tiene conto delle recenti scoperte in America di Verrazano (1522-24) e Cartier (1534-35); le coste occidentali del nuovo continente appaiono curiosamente nella parte destra della carta. Il mappamondo del Muenster è inoltre la prima carta che nomina il ?Mare Pacificum?, mentre l?Australia è presente sebbene non nominata. La carta è riccamente decorata da una cornice ornamentale con 12 putti che simboleggiano i venti; una serie di mostri marini sono presenti nel basso oceano. Xilografia, finemente colorata a mano, lievi restauri alla piega centrale perfettamente eseguiti, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Edizione latina. Bibliografia: Shirley, The Mapping of the World, 92. Dimensioni 380x265. Decorative full colour example of Munster's map of the modern world. This example is from the second woodblock, which includes the engraver David Kandel's initials. The map is richly embellished with sea monsters and 12 windheads. The map first appeared in the 1554 edition of Munster's Cosmographia. The map is based upon a mix of information derived from Verrazano's explorations (1522-24), who mistook the Chesapeake for the Indian Ocean, and Cartier's voyages (1534-35) up the St. Lawrence in search of the Northwest Passage. The west coast of America appears on the right side of … [Click Below for Full Description]
