        Opera Omnia. Tomus III.

      Johannes Crato, VVitebergae ( Wittenberg ) 1553. 1. Auflage Dieser Ausgabe Goldgeprägter Halblederband Ordentlich. "Tomus tertius omnium operum reverendi viri, domini Martini Lutheri Doctoris Theologiae, Continens enarrationes Deuteronomij, Ultimorum uerborum Davidis, multorum Psalmorum pias, luculentas, & uaalde utiles. Catalogum singularum partium inuenies post praefationem". Pappbezogener Holz-Einband mit Lederecken und -rücken, Einriss vorderer Rückenfalz ohne Deckellösung, leichte Lockerung, Fehlstelle Filet oberhalb Kapitalband, goldgeprägter Rückentitel, 5 Bünde, solide und mit angenehmster Patina, Buchblock materiell gut und unversehrt, weitestgehend sauber, Namenseintragung von 1845 auf Vorsatzblatt, floral ornamental gestaltetes Titelblatt, dekorierte Initialen, kaum Stockflecken, sauber und klar gedruckt, 599 paginierte Seiten, ab dem Vorwort Wasserflecken am unteren Seitenrand, nicht den Text betreffend, insgesamt noch sehr gute Papierqualität. Eine Rarität!----Krafft: Hans K. (Crato), Buchdrucker zu Wittenberg im 16. Jahrhundert. Geboren, wie er selbst in seinem Drucke "Psalterium" (vgl. unten) angibt, zu Usingen in der Wetterau, in welchem Jahre ist nicht bekannt, gilt er wo nicht als ein jüngerer Bruder, so doch als ein naher Verwandter von Melanchthon's Freund Johann Crato v. Krafftheim (Bd. IV S. 567), der unseren K. nach dem Tode des Buchdruckers Georg Rhau (vgl. d.) nach Wittenberg gezogen haben mag. Wenigstens wurde ihm, obgleich noch mehrere nicht namenslose typographische Werkstätten daselbst bestanden, vor allen Anderen der Druck der meisten Melanchthonischen Schriften zugewiesen. Aus seinem äußeren Leben wissen wir, daß er seit 1567 Mitglied des Wittenbergischen Rathscollegiums war, welche Stelle er bis 1576 bekleidete und daß er, weil nach 1577 unter seinem Namen kein Buch mehr erscheint, wol in diesem Jahre gestorben ist. Seine Thätigkeit als Drucker begann mit dem Jahre 1549 und die Zahl der bis zu seinem Tode gelieferten Preßerzeugnisse beläuft sich auf 111, theilweise in wiederholten Auflagen, welche sich sämmtlich durch reine, große und splendide Lettern und ungemein sauberes Papier auszeichnen (aus: Wikisource).------This is volume III of Martin Luther's collected works, foreword by Philipp Melanthon, printed by Johann Crato (Hans Krafft), Martin Luther's own book printer, solidly bound on wooden board, leather spine with gilded title and ornaments, slight leather tear along the spine, nevertheless solid, excellent paper quality, almost no foxing, clearly printed, ancient water marks running throughout the pages (bottom edge), not affecting the text, several initials, altogether satisfying condition for this genuinely rare item.------Le tome III des oeuvres completes de Martin Luther avec introduction de Philipp Melanthon, reliure demi cuir, avec piece de titre, dorures, 5 nerfs, endommagee sur le plat de devant, neanmoins l'ouvrage reste solide, excellente qualite de papier et d'impression, initiales, pratiquement aucunes rousseurs, anciennes mouillures en bas des pages n'affectant pas le texte, dans l'ensemble solide et en etat tout a fait satisfaisant. 22 x 30 Cm. 2,8 Kg.

Pgtbd, alter Pappebezug - von einigen verbliebenen Resten abgesehen - entfernt, Spiegel, Vorsätze u. Textil-Schlaufen fachgerecht erneuert, insges. wohlerh. - Seltene EA des maßgebl. Ehe- u. Scheidungsrechts-Kompendiums auf der Basis der bibl. Lehre u. des weltl. Rechts aus den Anfängen der sich institutionalisierenden Kirchen der Reformation, vom Autor verfaßt als Thomas-Pastor zu Leipzig u. gewidm. d. Bürgermeister und den Ratsherrn der Stadt Leipzig, seinen "großgünstigen Herrn u. Förderern". "Sarcerius gehört zu d. gediegensten Persönlichkeit. im Kreis der luther. Theologen u. Schulmännern der Reformation. Ein Mann von ehrlicher, herzlicher Frömmigkeit u. reinem Wandel Besonders große Verbreitung fand sein 'Buch v. hl. Ehestand', 1553, in dem er neben eigenem auch eine reichhaltige Zusammenstellung aus der evangelischen Literatur (aus Luther, Melanchthon, Maior, Brenz, Bugenhagen u. Bullinger) über die verschiedenen Kapitel der Ehematerie bot" (RE XVII 482 ff). Seine Stellungnahmen zu den 'vielen Fellen' im Scheidungsr. werden in erster Linie verständlich unter seelsorgerlich-pastoralem Aspekt. Unvergessen ist Sarcerius in der ehemaligen Grafschaft Nassau-Dillenburg-Siegen, wohin ihn Graf Wilhelm von Nassau, der Vater von Wilhelm dem Schweiger (von Nassau-Oranien, 1533-1584), 1536 auf Empfehlung Martin Luthers berief. Segensreich war sein Wirken als Rektor d. Siegener Lateinschule u. darauf dann 10 Jahre als Superus der Geistlichen, bis daß der Ausbruch des Interims 1548 seiner Tätigkeit ein Ende setzte. - Fortsetzung:.

        P. Terentii Comoediae sex. Iam denuo castigatae, atque scholijs illustratae. Editae studio et labore Philippi Melanthonis ac Erasmi Roterodami.

      Leipzig, Georg Hantzsch, 1553.. Kl.-8vo. (16,2 x 10,6 cm). 213 (statt 216?) nn. Bll. Blindgeprägter Lederband der Zeit auf 3 erhabenen Bünden über Holzdeckeln, mit Rollenstempel und Streicheisenlinien und geprägtem Titel 'Terenti'; hinteres Gelenk mit wenigen, kleinen Wurmlöchern, Schließen fehlen, Leder mit Fehlstellen an den Schließen und an den Kanten.. Seltene Gesamtausgabe der Komödien des Terenz mit den bedeutenden Kommentaren der Humanisten Philipp Melanchthon und Erasmus von Rotterdam. Melanchthons Ausgabe des römischen Komödienautors Terenz war 1516 erstmals erschienen. Sie war höchstwahrscheinlich das Ergebnis einer Vorlesung des jungen Tübinger Dozenten. Melanchthons Einführung in die Terenz-Ausgabe ist bedeutend, da sie einen breit gefächerten und glänzend geschriebenen Überblick über die griechische und lateinische Komödiengeschichte gibt. Ein Brief und eine Abhandlung über Metrik von Erasmus von Rotterdam ergänzen die Ausgabe. - Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist bibliographisch für uns nicht nachweisbar. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um einen Nachdruck der Ausgabe Wittenberg, Lufft, 1547/48 (vgl. VD 16 T 429). Die exakte Schreibweise des Titels lautet: P. TEREN= // TII COMOE= // DIAE SEX. IAM DENVO CA= // STIGATE, ATQUE // scholijs illustratae. // EDITAE STVDIO ET LABO= // RE PHILIPPI MELAN- // THONIS AC // ERASMI // ROTERODAMI. - Der Text der am Schluß fehlenden Blätter d1 & d2 ist in alter Handschrift auf zwei lose beiliegenden Blättern ergänzt, das fehlende Blatt d8 war möglicherweise unbedruckt. Der zweifarbig gedruckte Titel stark beschnitten (ohne Textberührung) und auf altem Papier aufgezogen. Durchgängig mit Wasserrand und schwach wasserwellig, sowie mit in die Außen-, Kopf- und Fußstege färbendem Farbschnitt; einige Seiten mit Marginalien von alter Hand.

Personen), die 1553 gleichzeitig in 3 Sprachen erschien, näml. außer in Latein auch in Franz. u. Italien. (Baudr. IX 32, 204 ff), wobei der Druckergelehrte (Polyhistor) selbst der Autor der Texte ist. Dieses bebilderte 'Namenslexikon' fand regen Zuspruch u. wurde ein großer verleg. Erfolg, vor allem wegen der so lebensecht gestaltet. Porträts, die - wie er in der Widm. an Heinrich II. (dessen Porträt ist in fine zweimal) verrät - wirklich der 'Physiognomie gemäß' (der Autor gebraucht das griech. Wort: 'physiognomikos') gezeichn. u. per Holzst. wiedergeg. sind. - Fortsetz.:.

Divided into three parts, Belon extensively describes the natural history and the religion, customs and traditions of the peoples he encounters, with detailed observations on the pyramids, Mount Sinai, Damascus, and the consumption of opium. The fine woodcuts, attributed to Arnold Nicolai and Pierre Goudet (Gourdelle), include a hand-coloured map of the Dardanelles (Hellespont), a view of Alexandria, an illustration of a giraffe, and coins with Arabic inscriptions.

At 46 Belon was murdered in the Bois de Boulogne. - Contemporary owner's inscription on title page ("Ex libris Petri Drouotz") and several contemporary annotations (by the same?) in the margins.

        NOVUM TESTAMENTUM. Interprete Sebastiano Castalione

      Basel, Ioannes Oporinus, 1553.. NEW TESTAMENT 1553, Latin text. Second edition of Castalione translation, 8vo, approximately 170 x 95 mm, 6¾ x 3¾ inches, 501 pages with side notes, ruled throughout in reddish brown, title lined in yellow on title page, decorated initials to each book with same early pale yellow hand colouring, some capital letters lined in yellow throughout, bound in full antique calf, rebacked to style with gilt motif and title between raised bands, covers panelled in blind with gilt ornament at corners and in centre, all edges gilt, original red ruled endpapers. Corners worn with slight loss of leather to tips, lower cover worn with some loss of surface and loss of leather on fore-edge, small scrape to upper cover also, inner paper hinges repaired expertly, small armorial bookplate on first pastedown, closed tear to 2 margins, 1 just affecting text, neatly repaired, all still legible, tip missing from 2 corners, a few marginal notes and a few underlinings, both in very pale ink, contents otherwise clean, binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a Latin New Testament. The translator Sebastien Chatillon (1515-1563) was a French Protestant theologian and humanist. He was an associate of Calvin and an important figure in the early years of the Reformation. Through the influence of Calvin he was appointed rector of a school in Geneva, from which he was expelled on theological grounds in 1544. He subsequently became a professor of Greek in Basel and there published his famous Latin version of the Bible (1551). Calvin had refused permission for this in Geneva when he realised that Chatillon's translation threatened his authority on a number of points of theological interpretation. A separate edition of Chatillon's New Testament was issued also in 1551. A striking characteristic of Chatillon's Latin version is his use of classical substitutes for recognised ecclesiastical terms such as fanum for templum, respublica for ecclesia, collegium for synagoga. Chatillon also made a French version of the Bible from the Hebrew and Greek published in 1555 also in Basel. See Darlow and Moule, II,1 3720 and II, 2 6131.

        De Re Medica Libri Tres. Jacobo Sylvio Medico interprete. Cum annotationibus et scholiis eiusdem. Index locupletissimus cum Capitum, tum omnium quae scitu digna sunt operi praefixus est.

      S.l. (Paris), 1553. - Petit in-8. 248 feuillets chiffrés. 4ff. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs, encadrement à froid sur les plats avec fleurons dorés dans les angles (reliure moderne dans le style de l'époque). Ouvrage classique de pharmacie publié sous le nom du grand médecin arabe Yahya ibn Masawaih (775-857), qui fut directeur de l'hôpital de Bagdad et qui joua un rôle considérable dans l'avancement des sciences en Perse. Ce volume réunit sous un même titre trois ouvrages de pharmacie, dont l'un d'eux est aujourd'hui considéré comme apocryphe. "The 'Grabardin', or apothecary's manual (Antidotarium), of the eponymous or pseudonymous Mesue junior, now called 'pseudo-Mesue', a mysterious Latin compilation of the 10th or 11th century, of which the Arabic originals have never been found, was the most popular compendium of drugs in medieval Europe, and was used everywhere in their preparation. The Mesue treatise on purgatives divides the latter into laxative (tamarinds, figs, prunes, cassia), mild (wormwood, senna, aloes, rhubarb) and drastic (jalap, scammony, colocynth). The esteem in which these works were held is shown by the fact that a Latin translation of both was one of the first medical books to be printed (Venice, 1471). It passed through more than 30 editions up to 1581, and has influenced all later pharmacopeias" (Garrison). La traduction latine est due au médecin français Jacques Dubois (1478-1555). Inscriptions manuscrites anciennes dans les marges. Quelques salissures et traces de manipulation. Cf. Garrison, History of Medicine, p.133. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

De Conservanda bona valetudine scholae Salernitanae opusculum: Cum Arnoldi Nouicomensis, Medici et Philosophi celeberrimi [?] edita per Ioannem Curionem, et Iacobum Crellium. ITEM, De Electione meliorum Simplicium, ac Specierum Medicinalium, Rhythmi M. Othonis Cremonensis. De moderatione cibi & potus, item Somni et uigiliarum [.] ex Philippi Melanthonis de anima libro. Polybij de Victus salubris ratione priuatorum, Tractatus.

      - Frankfurt; Christian Egenolff, 1553. 8:o. 16x10 cm. (8), 146, (5) leaves (the last blank is missing). 18th century marbled wrappers. With 69 woodcuts in the text, some of them by Johann Faber von Kreuznach and by Hans Sebald Beham, depicting for instance medicinal plants, a hospital interior, the treading of grapes, a vomiting man, and a pig slaughter. Spine faded and with two L-shaped tears. The woodcut printer's mark on the title-leaf has been cut away. On the opposite page only the catchword is affected by this operation. A short tear in top margin of leaf 104, and in outer margin of leaf 128. A stain in lower margin of leaf 138. A few small specks and fingerprints scattered through the text, but contents are remarkably clean. In lower margin of leaf 13 (verso) and 58 (recto) a reasonably early owner has written a few short verses in latin, for instance: "Post coenam stabis, vel passus mille meabis" [After the meal, you should rise and walk at least one thousand steps], and "Caseus, anguilla nimis obsunt si comedantur" [Cheese and Eel becomes too heavy if they are eaten together]. This work on maintaining good health is traditionally attributed to the Catalan alchemist, astrologer and physician Arnald of Villanova (1235-1311), here edited by Jacob Crell and Joannes Curio. The first edition thus was published in 1545. "Of the knowledge emanating from [the Medical School at] Salerno, however, the work most influental on health practices of Europeans was of quite different character. A health manual, the so-called Regimen sanitatis, consisted of dietetic and pharmaceutical rules in verse form. The original collection of 364 verses presumably was edited and annotated about the year 1300, by one of the most progressive and chemically oriented physicians of the late Middle Ages, Arnald of Villanova. Although perhaps not intended originally for laymen, the treatise soon became popular, and after the invention of printing it appeared in all European languages in upward of 300 editions, accumulating additional verses and commentaries through the decades. The relatively simple and inexpensive pharmaceutical measures advocated in its pages probably was not the least appealing feature of this popular health guide for a continent." (Kremers and Urdang, History of Pharmacy pp. 32). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        La Nouvelle Natura Breviu[m] du Iudge Tresreverende Monsieur Anthonie

      1553. Fitzherbert, Anthony [1470-1538]. Rastell, William [1508?-1565]. La Nouvelle Natura Breviu[m] du Iudge Tresreverende Monsieur Anthonie Fitzherbert, Dernierement Renue & Corrige per Laucteur, Avecques un Table Perfaicte des Choses Notables Contenues en Ycelle, Novelment Co[m]posee per Guilliaumle Rastell, & Iammais per Cydeuaunt Imprimee. London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1553 [colophon date: 1560]. [xxxii] of [xxxiii], 271, [1] ff. The missing leaf is a blank. Octavo (6-1/4" x 4-1/4"). Nineteenth-century paneled calf, dentelles to board edges and interior, rebacked retaining earlier spine, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, edges rouged, marbled pastedowns, free endpapers lacking (or never present). Moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends, hinges cracked, armorial bookplate to rear pastedown. Title printed within woodcut architectural border. Some toning to interior, very faint dampstaining to portions of text, dampspotting to a few leaves, light soiling and some edgewear to title page. Annotations in early court hand to endleaves, title page and most of text. An appealing wide-margined copy. * First published in 1534, the Nouvelle Natura Brevium is a manual of procedure written by a Judge of the Common Pleas during the reign of Henry VIII. Winfield notes that "Coke put it among the books which he considered most necessary and of greatest authority and excellency"; Blackstone considered it an authority as well. Compiled from the earlier Natura Brevia and the Registrum Brevium, it includes several original observations on the form and function of writs. Rastell's revisions include the addition of a table. A popular work, it went through numerous editions in Law French and English, the final appearing in 1794. It remains significant to this day for its descriptions of writs that were becoming obsolete in the early sixteenth century. Most of the annotations in our copy are case references. Some offer commentary or cite passages in other treatises, such as Lambard's Eirenarcha. A few combine references to cases, commentary and a treatise citation.

        Codice Tudela

      2 volumes in slipcase. Volume 1 Text: 315 pages with tables, figures and bibliography. Volume 2 accordion facsimile codex. Folio (12" x 9") bound in original cloth beige cloth with brown lettering to spine and cover. Prolog by Donald Robertson. Epilog by Wigberto Jimenez Moreno. Correlation of the codex by Ferdinand Anders and S Jeffrey K Wilkerson. First edition.Museo de America, Codice del. Codex Tudela. Costumbres, Fiestas, Enterramientos y diversas Formas de Proceder de los Inidos de la Nueva Espana. Museo de America, Madrid. Ritual-calendrical and ethnographic. Valley of Mexico c 1553(?). European paper. 119 leaves. The discovery of this major manuscript was announced at the 28th International Congress of Americanists in Paris in 1947 by Tudela. Part of its pictorial content is a version of material in other manuscripts of the Magliabecchiano Group. The first four leaves have six full-figure portraits of various Indian types (Mexican woman, Tarascan Indian, Yope Indian, etc) and a drawing of a maguey plant. Five or six missing leaves had similar drawings, to judge from copied captions in the Escorial copy of the text. The next four parts of the codex contain: (1) drawings and Spanish texts illustrative of the gods and ceremonies of the 18 months of the 365 day year; (2) drawings and texts of other ceremonies, gods, sacrifices and customs; (3) year symbols for a 52-year period; and (4) drawings of ritual symbols on blankets. The drawings of the four parts parallel those in Codex Magliabecchiano, but the Spanish texts in the two manuscripts are different and each manuscript has drawings not in the other. Five pages from the sections cognate with Codex Magliabecciano have been previously published. The final section of the codex contains: (1) a Spanish text describing the native calendar in terms of the 20-day periods subdivided into periods of 13 and 7 days and (2) drawings and Spanish texts depicting and describing the 260-day divinatory almanac. The highly detailed latter section contains almost unique data relating to a four-way division of the tonalpohualli (four direction trees), pairs of gods for 13-eay periods, as well as data on the 13 birds and the Nine Lords of the Night. The final page has a drawing of a spread deerskin with day signs attributed to different parts of the body. This drawing, which has been published, was at that time the only part of this section of the codex that had been published.Condition:Text and codex in fine condition. Slipcase good with title "Tudela" written on the spine, some tear to edges and tape repair to spine foot.

A compendium of condensed decisions ('placita'), mixed with commentary, made by the supreme court in France (the Parisian Parliament) on ecclesiastical matters, the king and the nobility, the courts and the practice and implementation of law, civil life, and criminal justice. The "placita," dated (from 14th century to the author's time) but not quoted verbatim, are organised by subject and cover such miscellany as the ban on selling masks, the rights of bakers, commercial loans, Gallican church independence, marriage forced by rape, protections for surgeon's apprentices, etc. Book XI includes a section on the laws governing public auctions. The manuscript note in French at the front informs that the author Jean du Luc was first prosecutor at the Parliament of Paris and afterwards prosecutor general of Queen Catherine de Medicis, wife of Henri II. The ex libris in Latin on the title page reveals that the book belonged to another 'procurator generalis" in the Parisian Parliament. Adams, Books published in Europe 1501-1600, L1646.

        NOVUM TESTAMENTUM. Interprete Sebastiano Castalione

      Basel, Ioannes Oporinus 1553.. NEW TESTAMENT, 1553, Latin text. Second edition of Castalione translation, 8vo, approximately 170 x 95 mm, 6¾ x 3¾ inches, 501 pages with side notes, ruled throughout in reddish brown, title lined in yellow on title page, decorated initials to each book with same early pale yellow hand colouring, some capital letters lined in yellow throughout, bound in full antique calf, rebacked to style with gilt motif and title between raised bands, covers panelled in blind with gilt ornament at corners and in centre, all edges gilt, original red ruled endpapers. Corners worn with slight loss of leather to tips, lower cover worn with some loss of surface and loss of leather on fore-edge, small scrape to upper cover also, inner paper hinges repaired expertly, small armorial bookplate on first pastedown, closed tear to 2 margins, 1 just affecting text, neatly repaired, all still legible, tip missing from 2 corners, a few marginal notes and a few underlinings, both in very pale ink, contents otherwise clean, binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a Latin New Testament. The translator Sebastien Chatillon (1515-1563) was a French Protestant theologian and humanist. He was an associate of Calvin and an important figure in the early years of the Reformation. Through the influence of Calvin he was appointed rector of a school in Geneva, from which he was expelled on theological grounds in 1544. He subsequently became a professor of Greek in Basel and there published his famous Latin version of the Bible (1551). Calvin had refused permission for this in Geneva when he realised that Chatillon's translation threatened his authority on a number of points of theological interpretation. A separate edition of Chatillon's New Testament was issued also in 1551. A striking characteristic of Chatillon's Latin version is his use of classical substitutes for recognised ecclesiastical terms such as fanum for templum, respublica for ecclesia, collegium for synagoga. Chatillon also made a French version of the Bible from the Hebrew and Greek published in 1555 also in Basel. See Darlow and Moule, II,1 3720 and II, 2 6131.

        Candore della catholica verità

      Rome:: (the brothers Valerio, Dorico, and Luigi Bressani for) Vincenzo Lucrino,, 1553. 8vo. 2 parts in one, 8vo (149 x 90 mm). 178 pp., [2] ff. Italic type, headings in roman. Five full-page woodcut illustrations. Woodcut monogram of Christ on title, red-printed cardinal’s insignia and arms (in black) of Cardinal Morone opening the dedication (A2r), large papal insignia at end of part 1 (F7r), historiated woodcut initials, printer’s device on final recto. All woodcut illustrations and ornaments hand-colored. Later vellum over boards (lacking fore-edge ties).***& & FIRST EDITION of an illustrated anti-Lutheran polemic by a former Barnabite and inquisitor. Born Paolo Lorenzo Castellino, Davidico was expelled from the Barnabites of Milan in 1547 for arrogant conduct as well as apparently for stealing, before making his way up in anti-heretical circles. He ingratiated himself with Ignatius of Loyola by denouncing a popular preacher accused of heresy, Giuliano da Colle (who died in prison), and eventually landed the office of Apostolic Preacher under Pope Julius III. & & Davidico wrote several devotional and polemical works which he dedicated to influential prelates and personages close to the Papacy. Following publication of this book, its dedicatee Cardinal Giovanni Morone offered Davidico a position as Vicar in his diocese; within months the latter was caught selling absolution. Morone dismissed him from his charge, forced him to return the money and kicked him out of the diocese. A few years later, when Morone was incarcerated at the Castello San Angelo in Rome under suspicion of heresy, Davidico wrote a bitter denunciation of the Cardinal and testified against him.

        Il battesimo di San Paolo

      Bulino, 1553, datato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Maarten van Heemskerck. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, con l?indirizzo di Hieronimus Cock. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, irregolarmente rifilata al rame, leggere abrasioni perfettamente restaurate al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.Maarten van Heemskerck (1498 - 1574) è stato un pittore olandese del periodo detto rinascimento transalpino. La sua arte è stata influenzata dal viaggio in Italia, dove resterà per 4 anni a Roma, dedicandosi soprattutto allo studio dell'antico, mediante l'esercizio del disegno. Ritornato in patria, continuerà a rappresentare nei suoi quadri le antiche rovine di Roma usate per ambientare soggetti anche eterogenei. Si dedica anche alla grafica, caratterizzata da un particolare manierismo appreso in Italia, che ricorda il Parmigianino ed il Pontormo. Intuendo la grande potenzialità dell?incisione per la traduzione dei suoi disegni, l?artista inizia la collaborazione con alcuni editori ed incisori quali Hieroniums Cock. Sono note circa 600 incisioni derivanti dai suoi disegni. Dirck Volkertszoon Coornhert nacque ad Amsterdam, dopo aver viaggiato in Spagna e in Italia, si stabilì ad Haarlem. Rara incisione. Engraving, 1554, signed on plate, lower center. After Maarten van Heemskerck. Example of the first state of two, with the address of Hieronimus Cock. A beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, irregularly trimmed to copperplate, light abrasions perfectly restored, otherwise in good condition, Maarten van Heemskerck (1498 - 1574) was a Dutch painter of the Renaissance. His art was influenced by the trip to Italy, where he stayed for four years in Rome, devoted primarily to the study of antiquity, through the exercise of drawing. Returning to his homeland, will continue to represent in his pictures of the ancient ruins of Rome used to set subjects also heterogeneous. Dedicated to graphics, characterized by a particular mannerism learned in Italy, reminiscent of the Parmigianino and Pontormo. Realizing the great potential of the engraving for the translation of his drawings, he began working with some publishers and engravers such as Hieroniums Cock. Are known about 600 engravings from his own drawings. Dirck Coornhert Volkertszoon was born in Amsterdam. After traveling in Spain and Italy, he settled in Haarlem. For many years Coornhert he earned his living as an engraver, producing fine works. Rare engraving. The New Hollstein 394 I/II; Riggs, Hieronimus Cock, 113; The Illustrated Bartsch 55, 42.
