COORNHERT, Dirck Volkertszoon (1522-1590) - MACK, Georg the Elder (fl. 1556-1601) - HEEMSKERCK, Maarten Van (1498-1574)
Antwerp: Hieronymous Cock, 1556. Single sheet, mounted and framed (6 ¼ x 9 inches). FINE engraving and etching, with transparent wash and body color, highlighted with gold and silver. Provenance: Signed "GM," most likely Georg Mack the Elder. First edition. EXTREMELY FINE engraving by Coornhert after a drawing by Heemskerck, ILLUMINATED and SIGNED by Georg Mack the Elder. Exhibited in "Painted Prints: The Revelation of Color in Northern Renaissance & Baroque Engravings, Etchings & Woodcuts," 2002, no. 42, at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Number 7 in a series of 12 engravings entitled "The Victories of Emperor Charles V." "In 1556 Hieronymus Cock published a series of 12 engravings, with a separate title page, on the theme of the victories of Emperor Charles V. The designs were by Maarten van Heemskerck, and the plates were cut by Dirck Volckertsz. Coornhert...'The victories of Charles V' exalts the mighty deeds of the emperor. The title page refers to the prints as 'images of paternal triumphs' ('paternarum victoriarum imagines'), and the dedication is to Charles's successor as Lord of the Netherlands, so the series may well have been intended to urge Philip to follow in his father's footsteps... "Beneath the seventh print we are told that 'The emperor enters Tunis in triumph, victorious through his courage in the war; the African yields at once and is put to Flight.' 'The Africa' is the infamous pirate-admiral Barbarossa who terrorized the western Mediterranean, attacking the galleys of the Christians and transporting crew and passengers to serve as slaves.

PLINIUS SECUNDUS, Gaius.
Adams P-1556; BMC German, p. 704; Durling 3689 (imperfect copy); Hunt 23. First edition of Pliny's Natural history as edited by Johannes Caesarius (1468-1550), a humanist and close friend of Erasmus. Pliny's Natural history is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman Empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available at the time. It encompasses the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy, geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Pliny's accounts of some technical advances are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing (using water to wash away soil) in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding grain. Archaeological excavations have confirmed much of what he wrote. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf ... Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls ... [He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised ... The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 contains a chapter giving the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. With bookpla … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Nel 1444 vengono divulgati gli Elegantiarum libri sex (i sei libri sull'eleganza della lingua latina), pubblicati peré postumi nel 1471. L'opera raccoglie una serie straordinaria di passi desunti dai pié celebri scrittori latini (Publio Virgilio Marone, Cicerone, Livio), dallo studio dei quali, sostiene Valla, occorre codificare i canoni linguistici, stilistici e retorici della lingua latina. Il testo costitué la base scientifica del movimento umanista impegnato a riformare il latino cristiano sullo stile ciceroniano. La sua opera si basa su una profonda padronanza della lingua latina e sulla convinzione che sia stata proprio un'insufficiente conoscenza del latino la vera causa del linguaggio ermetico ed ambiguo di molti filosofi. Valla é convinto che l'uso corretto della lingua sia l'unico mezzo di comunicazione ed acculturazione: la grammatica ed un appropriato modo di esprimersi stanno alla base di ogni enunciato e, prima anc … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACROBIUS, Ambrosius Aurelius Theodosius (fl. circa A.D. 395-425)
Saturnaliorum, lib. VII. Ex uarijs, ac uetustissimis codicibus recogniti, & aucti. Uniform title: Commentarii in Somnium Scipioni. Lvgdvni [Lyon] : apvd Seb. Gryphivm, 1556. Octavo, contemporary binding dated 1560 of blind-embossed pigskin over wooden boards, two engraved metal clasps, a little rubbed but overall very good, title page with printer's device with motto "Virtute duce, comite fortuna", pp. 567; [73]; illustrated with diagrams and map, woodcut initials, marginal notes; internally clean, a fine copy. Text in Latin with quotations and examples in Greek. A mid-sixteenth century edition of the Roman fifth century writer Macrobius' hugely influential commentary on Cicero's In somnium Scipionis (The dream of Scipio), published in Lyon by Sebastian Gryphius (1493-1556). Cicero's work, the sixth book of De re publica, describes a fictional dream vision of the Roman general Scipio Aemilianus, set in the period immediately prior to the destruction of Carthage in 146 B.C.. The commentary of Macrobius, in essence a philosophical discourse on the nature of the cosmos which promotes the paradigm of a spherical earth, first appeared in print in Venice in 1472. However, the 1483 Brescia edition was the first to contain Macrobius' world map, one of the earliest printed maps to depict the world as a globe. This map, retained in subsequent editions (including the 1556 Gryphius) is also of immense importance because it shows the hypothetical Antipodes - Terra Australis Incognita. The existence of such a landmass was posited by Macrobius on the basis that it provided the earth with … [Click Below for Full Description]

Manzolli Pier Angelo (Marcelus Palingenius, anagramma)
Giovanni Tornes e Guglielmo Gaze, Lione, 1556. Volume in 16° cartonato, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli colorati, sguardie, frontespizio inquadrato da ampia cornice silografica (scritte a pennino), 366 pp., 41 carte d'indici. Poema latino in esametri suddiviso in 12 libri come i segni zodiacali in cui però l'astrologia riveste un ruolo marginale, essendo oggetto principale della poesia l'esoterismo, lo studio della pluralità dei mondi e soprattutto la condanna degli abusi ecclesiastici della Curia papale romana con simpatia per le tesi di Lutero e di Erasmo. Ebbe un rapido successo e fu molto apprezzato negli ambienti protestanti e del Nord Europa. Lautore, umanista, medico e poeta nato a Stellata, Ferrara nel 1500 e morto nel 1543, pubblicò quest'opera sotto lo pseudonimo di Marcellus Palingenius (le iniziali dei primi 29 versi del libro I danno proprio lacrostico di questo nome). Dopo la morte, nel 1549, Paolo III istituì un processo contro la sua memoria, le ossa furono riesumate e arse al rogo. Nel 1558 questo lavoro fu messo allIndice. In più che bello stato, corto nel margine superiore, sottolineature a pennino. Rara ed importante edizione.

Die Zierinitialen der Offizin Froschauer zeigen Szenen aus der biblischen Geschichte. Sie sind in der Züricher Bibel selten! "Die Initialen sind in Zeichnung, Darstellung und Schnitt vorzüglich. Ihr Duktus weist auf Niklaus Manuel Deutsch, teilweise nach holbeinischen Motiven" (...) Die Ausführung und Technik erinnert stark an den Bibel-Monogrammisten VS (Veit Rudolf Specklin)" (P. Leemann-van-Elck In: Gutenberg Jahrbuch 1938, S. 148) Die erste Gesamtausgabe dieser Bibel erfolgte 1531 in einem etwas kleinerem Format. (Vgl. unser Angebot Nr. 5325).

Paris: Jehan Longis, 1556. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to. [20.8 x 14.7 cm]. (10) ff., 123 ff, (1) ff. (printer's device on verso). Bound in modern red crushed morocco, raised bands, spine in six compartments, spine gold tooled and lettered, covers blind tooled, gold-tooled board edges, gold-tooled dentelles, blue ribbon bookmark, red sprinkled edges. Only very minor rubbing corners, bookplate inside upper cover. Title a bit dusty, inscription on title ('Masson'), minor pale spotting to first few leaves, a few minor marginal stains, contemporary signature to f. 80 ('Didier Langreve'?), verso of final leaf a bit dusty. Rare first French edition of the work considered "the first to give anything approaching a correct and detailed account of China and the Far East" (PMM), and perhaps the most influential travel book of all time. This first appearance in French should possibly be linked to topical interest in the wider world: The description of China in Münster's Cosmographia is mentioned in the preface and one should recall that the 1550's saw intensive French exploration and colonization in the Americas. "Marco Polo was a member of a prosperous Venetian family engaged in commerce. He set out with his father and uncle in 1271 on a journey to the East. Starting from Acre the party traveled through Persia and the Upper Oxus to the Pamir plateau, and then through Mongolia and the Gobi Desert to the extreme north-west of China, reaching Shantung in 1275. Here they sojourned at the court of Kublai Khan until 1292, finally arriv … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cicero, Marcus Tullius
Lugduni: Gryphium, 1556. Paperback. Good +. 1556. Full vellum wrappers, 12mo, 256pp + index. Binding good with wrapper loose/detached at rear hinge, exposing the original sewing and backing. The wrapper is partially cracked/open along part of the rear joint, with a small tear toward the top, possibly caused by hardening from an old lacquering or varnishing of the spine. The upper edge is chipped but the spine end is fine. There is an old adhesive remainder toward the bottom of the spine. The vellum appears to have been written on at some point, though the evidence of this is faint. Internally, the book is in very good condition with a light tidemark to upper corner of the last 40 or so pages, otherwise bright and clean. There is a nice printer's device on the title page, and the book is nicely printed in general. Contents are unmarked, a very nice copy of this scarce volume.
