NOORT, Olivier van.
48 pp.Rare edition of the famous account of the circumnavigation by Olivier van Noort (1559-1627) in the years 1598 to 1601. Van Noort was the fourth to circumnavigate the globe and the first Dutchman to do so. His predecessors were Magellan, Drake and Cavendish. He left Holland in 1598 with four ships and orders to attack the Spanish and Portuguese and harass them in any way possible. After many adventures Van Noort returned in 1601 with only one ship and only a few dozen of his crew. Those few had survived numerous skirmishes with the Portuguese and Spanish, and attacks by natives at Puerto Deseada and Tierra del Fuego, the former described here as "zeer groot van gestalte" (very large in stature) leading to tales of giants. They suffered from scurvy and survived on penguin meat and ostrich eggs. Van Noort's story was extremely popular and as the first Dutchman to sail round the world he was revered out of national pride, even though his voyage accomplished little.With a 19th-century owner's name on an endleaf and an occasional word underlined. In very good condition. Cloth of backstrip gone and cloth frayed at the corners. Rare edition of an account of one of the earliest voyages around the world.l Sabin 55444; STCN (5 copies); Tiele 809, p. 182; Tiele, Memoire, pp. 35-36.

STRABO.
[12], 843, [112]; [4], 282, [8] pp.Enlarged and corrected second edition of Strabo's Geographika including the notes by the French scholar Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614): one of the earliest and most important scientific treatises on historical geography. It contains the Greek text together with the Latin translation by Wilhelm Xylander (1532-1576) and is followed by Casaubon's notes. "Casaubon was but 28 years of age when he published his first celebrated edition of Strabo [in 1587]... The [present] second edition, published by Frederick Morel at Paris, is much more accurate and splendid than the first" (Dibdin). Together with the works of Ptolemy and Solinus, Strabo's Geographika constitutes the first attempt at a unified treatise of geographical knowledge. It was first printed in 1516 by the Aldine press at Venice. Strabo visited Egypt and sailed up the Nile in 25 BC. Books 15 and 16 are devoted entirely to the Orient in general and Arabia in particular, while the final book discusses Egypt and Libya.With two bookplates on paste-down. Title-page browned, with the lower outer corner torn off, a single minute wormhole in the gutter margin through the first half of the book, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed and front hinge partly split, but otherwise good. An essential source for Europe's earliest relations with the Middle East.l Brunet V, col. 554; Dibdin II, p. 433; Graesse VII, p. 604.

JORIS, David (subject).
David Georgen ausz Holand deß Ertzkätzers warhafftige Histori, seines Lebens, unnd verfürischen Leer, . . . Basel, (colophon: printed by Hieronymus Curio, September 1559), 1559. Small 4to. With 2 large woodcut gothic decorated initials (56 mm). Set in schwabacher types with incidental fraktur and the year of publication in Roman numerals. Disbound. [63], [1 blank] pp. First German edition, of a rare and important early biography of the famous Dutch heretic and Anabaptist David Joris. Banished from Holland for his overt rejection of the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church, Joris fled to Friesland, where he met the Anabaptists. He joined them in 1533 after his baptism and tried to appease the disputing parties within the sect. Ecstatic and susceptible to flattery, he declared himself a prophet with a divine mission and supernatural powers. Soon he got many followers, but he and his group were also severely persecuted. In 1554, he came to live in Basle after five years on the run from the Dutch authorities. There he lived with his family as a rich and respected citizen under the name of Jan van Brugge, pretending to be a Reformed refugee while he still kept in touch with his followers in the Southern Netherlands. The present biography is especially valuable for Joris's life in Basle (1554-1556). With a small hole in 1 leaf, waterstains in the fore-edge and head margins, running slightly into the text, but still in good condition. Disbound and some of the sewing lost, so that 1 quire is detatched. Van der Linde 247; BMC STC German, p. 70; USTC 628444 (citing VD16); VD 16, D319; … [Click Below for Full Description]

Occulta naturae miracula, ac varia rerum documenta, probabili ratione atque artifici coniectura duobus libris explicata, quae studioso avidoque lectori non tam usui sunt futura, quam oblectamento.Antwerp, Willem Simon (colophon: Gillis Coppens van Diest), 1559. 8vo. With Simons woodcut device on the title-page and a woodcut coat of arms on title-page of the second part. Contemporary gold- and blind-tooled calf. [16], 192 ll. First edition of a very popular Latin presentation of the secrets of nature, considering physiological, physical, medical, religious and moral topics, by Levinus Lemnius (1505-1568), attempting to explain extraordinary natural phenomena. "Bits of medical and natural lore are thrown together hit-or-miss" in this work, but it was not without importance "since it was often cited by subsequent learned authors, and since the numerous editions and translation of it show that is was well suited to the taste of the time" (Thorndike). Lemnius clearly intended both to educate and to entertain the reader. Despite his interest in the occult and his astrological beliefs in the influence of the stars and the moon on people, Lemnius always remains pragmatic. Examples are the effects of human saliva, whether it is better to sleep with ones mouth open or closed, whether people should drink white wine before red, the use of vinegar in times of plague, the quarrelsome effect of Poitou-wines and the amorous effect of Rhine-wines, and why not to sleep in the moons rays when you are drunk.With some contemporary(?) manuscript annotations on the first endleaf, which is half cu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Du Bellay, Joachim (1522-1560)
Paris:, 1559. FIRST EDITION.. Quarto:. Bound in 19th c. speckled calf, ruled in gold (hinges rubbed, small loss at head of spine.) A fine copy. Small clean tear to blank margin of plate. Printed in Latin and French. Morel’s printer’s device on the title. Attractive ornamental initials. With the oversized woodcut plate of the fictive, multi-tiered tomb of Henri II. On the verso of the plate is an epitaph within an architectural frame. I have not traced another copy with this added plate. Joachim Du Bellay has earned the epithet of ‘le poète du sépulcre’ because of his obsession with the image of the tomb. “[T]he genre of occasional poetry known as the ‘Tombeau’ came into vogue in 1536 when the death of the Dauphin François de Valois occasioned a number of poetic tributes… According to the original conception of the genre, the ‘Tombeau’ is a monument designed to protect its subject from oblivion and to confer on him immortal fame. In succeeding years, the deaths of famous figures occasioned more poetic tombs, and in 1547 after François I’s death there appeared the ‘Tumuli Francisci Valesii’, the first such work to call itself a tomb. “Du Bellay’s involvement with the genre dates back to the earliest stages of his career. In 1550 three English noblewomen, Anne, Marguerite, and Jane Seymour composed a hundred Latin distichs to commemorate the death of Marguerite de Navarre, and in the following year Du Bellay translated these into French as his contribution to the ‘Tombeau de Marguerite de Valois, Reine de Navarre’.

Chr. in Arpinum - 43 v. Chr. bei Formiae). Römischer Politiker, Anwalt, Schriftsteller und Philosoph. Cicero war der berühmteste Redner Roms und Konsul im Jahr 63 v. Chr. Cicero war einer der vielseitigsten, aber auch wankelmütigsten Köpfe der römischen Antike. Als Schriftsteller war er schon für die Antike stilistisches Vorbild, seine Werke wurden als Muster einer vollendeten, „goldenen" Latinität nachgeahmt (Ciceronianismus). Sein umfangreicher Schriftverkehr, insbesondere die Briefe an Atticus, beeinflussten maßgeblich und nachhaltig die europäische Briefkultur. Diese Briefe und sein übriges Werk liefern uns ein detailreiches Bild der Zustände Roms am Ende der Republik.

CINO DA PISTOIA.MONTEMAGNO .
Roma, Antonio, Blado 1559. Due opere in un vol. in-8°; 2 cc., 44 cc., 2 cc. (ultima bianca) - 4 cc., 16 cc.; elegante legatura moderna in tutta pelle con fregi in oro al dorso e ai piatti a imitazione dell'antico. Qualche lieve brunitura ma buon esemplare. Prima edizione molto rara delle rime di due poeti pistoiesi del '300: Cino da Pistoia (1270-1336) e Buonaccorso da Montemagno (1313-1390). Le due raccolte di versi furono allestite da Niccolò Pilli il quale raccolse una grande messe di materiale dal Varchi, dal Tolomei, da Gualteruzzi da Fano e da altri letterati che si preoccupavano in quel torno di tempo di rintracciare ed ordinare il grande patrimonio della poesia lirica italiana. Preziose in questo senso le prefazioni e postfazioni del curatore che si leggono nel presente volume, le lettere e i privilegi ottenuti dal Papa, dai Medici, dai Duchi di Ferrara, di Parma e Piacenza e da altri "potenti d'Italia". Le due edizioni sono distinte; diversissimi infatti risultano i caratteri e l'impianto tipografico; però esse furono progettate insieme e realizzate a breve intervallo l'una dall'altra. Si veda in proposito il privilegio di Ottavio Farnese stampato nell'ultima facciata della prima opera: "avendo egli [il Pilli] già preparato di mettere in luce le opere di M. Cino e del Montemagno...". Tuttavia piuttosto raramente si trovano legate insieme: ed infatti il Gamba (358 n.) prima dà notizia di un'edizione di Cino del 1559 "colle Rime del Montemagno" e poi (676) afferma di non aver mai visto l'edizione romana sempre del 1559 del Montemagno. Gamba 358 e 676 n. Bernoni 160.

IBN RUSHD, MUHAMMAD (AVERROES)
N.P, 1559. Biur Ibn Rushd MeSepher Havaya Manuscript in Hebrew, written in a Karaite hand, on paper. Composed by Caleb son of Eliyahu Torto. A rare manuscript of Ibn Rushd’s Middle Commentary on his abridged translation of Aristotle’s Generation and Corruption [Talḫiṣ kitab al-kaun wa-l-fasād]. A philosophical work originally written in Arabic and translated into Hebrew by Kalonymus ben Kalonymus. Ibn Rushd (Latinized as Averroes, 1126-1198) was a medieval Andalusian polymath who wrote on logic, Aristotelian and Islamic philosophy, psychology, political theory, mathematics, as well as the medieval sciences. His works were translated into several languages and greatly influenced European philosophy in the medieval period. Similarly, “Jewish Averroism” served as an important source in defense of Aristotelian philosophy within Hebrew writings especially in the 14th century. On Generation and Corruption (also known as On Coming to Be and Passing Away) is a treatise by Aristotle. Like many of his texts, it is both scientific; part of Aristotle’s biology, and philosophic. The philosophy is essentially empirical; as in all of Aristotle’s works, the deductions made about the unexperienced and unobservable are based on observations and real experiences.

The work presents a broad picture of the advantages of rural life in sixteenth-century Lombardy in the form of a dialogue between two gentlemen, Vitauro and Partenio. Vitauro, in whose voice can be recognized Taegio's own, maintains the superiority of rural life compared to urban life, He tries to persuade Partenio to leave Milan and settle in the country. One of the benefits Vitauro argues, of living in the countryside is the pursuit of 'otium' or honorable leisure, which involves indulging in reading and writing and engaging in learned conversations without any of the distractions that are typical of the urban environment. Taegio also distances himself from both his contemporaries and predecessors by separating the villa from its agricultural context.
