ZANCHI, Giovanni Battista Bonadio de'
Venice: Pinio Pietrasanta, 1554. FIRST EDITION. Title within elaborate architectural border, separate leaf with portrait of the author, 17 decorative woodcut initials and 8 woodcut text illustrations (5 full-page). Bound in decorative modern boards. Other than a couple of very small and mild damp stains, a lovely large copy. First edition of the first Italian book devoted exclusively to fortification of cities. It was preceded only by Durer's Etliche underricht, zur befestigung der Stett (1527). Italian works by Valle (1521) and Cataneo and Tartaglia (both 1554) contained only chapters on the subject. Zanchi (1515-1586), a military engineer in the Venitian service under Marcantonio Colonna, took part in several campaigns including the long siege of Siena where he became acquainted with Belluzzi, and was a friend of Girolamo Maggi. He remarks that "the invention of artillery had necessitated a new system of fortifying cities, and that those who might have been qualified by experience to write on the subject were not sufficiently versed in its theory to do so" (Cockle, 767). The system he describes herein is the favoured Italian bastion trace, limited to the square (with acute-angled bastions but already with an attempt to reinforce the curtains) and the octagon (again strengthening the curtains). This design improved the defense of the fortress as covering fire had to be provided often from multiple angles. The woodcuts are among the earliest showing the new pentagonal form of bastion. Zanchi left the manuscript of his work with Girolamo Ruscelli when he h … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

GOMARA (Francisco Lopez de)
Anvers, Jean Bellere, 1554. - 1 vol. petit in-8°, veau brun estampé à froid sur ais de bois, dos à nerfs orné de fleurons à froid, encadrement de filets et de roulettes à froid sur les plats, fleuron à froid dans le cartouche central. Reliure du temps, mors épidermés. Ex-libris au contreplat de C. de Beaurepaire et ex-libris héraldique du XVIIIe s. (15) ff. (sur 16), 287 ff. et 1 vignette gravée sur bois dans le texte (bison). Signatures : [A-B]8 [A-Z]8 [Aa-Nn]8. Il manque le feuillet de titre (joint en fac-similé) ainsi que la carte hors-texte. Quelques cernes dans les marges. Chronique fondamentale pour l'histoire de la découverte de l'Amérique, la Historia general de las Indias fut rédigée par Gomara vers 1551 à partir d'une abondante documentation recueillie tant dans les ouvrages de Cortès, Anghierra, Oviedo, que des témoignages d'anciens conquistadors. Bien que son récit manque totalement d'objectivité, puisque Gomara cherche autant que possible à montrer les bienfaits de la christianisation des indiens et à légitimer les violences des conquistadors, il demeure le plus vaste et le plus complet ouvrage publié au XVIe siècle sur la conquête du Nouveau Monde. L'édition originale fut publiée en deux parties à Saragosse en 1552. Notre édition est l'une des deux impressions anversoises de 1554, l'autre ayant été donnée par Martin Nucius (en 300 ff.) Notre exemplaire ne comprend que la première partie, qui est consacrée à la découverte de l'Amérique par Christophe Colomb, et à la conquête de l'Amérique méridionale et centrale. La seconde partie, publiée la même année est con … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Munster
circa. 1554, Basel - Latin text on versoThe Cosmographia by Sebastian Münster (1488 ? 1552) from 1544 is the earliest German description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French (translated by François de Belleforest), Italian, English, and even 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 fascinating woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel). It was most important in reviving geography in 16th century Europe., Size : 255x340 (mm), 10x13.375 (Inches), Hand Colored
