This 1560 Bible was published by Francois Jaquy, a Genevan publisher who was known for his printing of bibles, prayer books, and Calvinistic catechisms. He printed works that were intended to supplement the Christian (Calvin) faith and reinforce the beliefs. Jaquy is quoted, himself, as saying: “We are so weak that if we have no help, we lose all courage immediately’ (Pettegree 106). This fine printing includes the Jaquy printer’s emblem on the title page which depicts a warrior fitted with the Armor of God. In addition to the scripture itself, this Bible is paired with musical notation of the Psalms of David.

         Opusculum, in quo una oratio, & duae questiones: altera de certitudine, & altera de medietate mathematicarum continentur .

      Padua, Gratioso Perchacino, 1560 - 4to (94 x 48 mm), ff 40, with printer's device on title; small wormhole on blank inner margin of title, not affecting text, and another touching a few letters on last two leaves, a very nice, crisp copy in early patterned wrappers.First edition of this rare work on the philosophy of mathematics, and a work important to Galileo's assertion of mathematics as the foundation of scientific truth. Barozzi argues that mathematics is based on divine truth and is therefore capable of expressing philosophical certainties, a position derived from Proclus, who is quoted extensively. At the end of the Opusculum there is a reference to his translation of Proclus, which was published in the same year.'In 1560 he published Opusculum, in quo una Oratio, et duae Quaestiones: altera de certitudine, et altera de medietate Mathematicarum continentur. This was written to argue against the views of Alessandro Piccolomini on the nature of mathematical certainty published in Commentarium (Rome, 1547). Barozzi argues that mathematical certainty derives from the nature of its proofs: . the certitude of mathematics is contained in the syntactic rigour of demonstrations.It is not, therefore, inferior to logical certainty. In addition he argues that mathematical certainty, from the human standpoint, is superior to metaphysical certainty. For although metaphysical certainty is superior in absolute terms, due to the superiority of God, relative to human understanding mathematical certainty is superior' (MacTutor History of Mathematics online).'Barozzi . focused his interest on proving the scientificity - and not just certainty - of mathematics by stressing its middle position (medietas) between philosophy and metaphysics, both in the order of nature (ontology) and in the order of knowing (epistemology). This doctrine he deemed common to Aristotle and Plato and was the source of recognizing mathematical demonstrations as equivalent to demonstrations potissimae. The compatibility between the objects of a science and the kind of demonstrations it used led, according to Barozzi, to the inescapable recognition of the higher status of mathematics relative to philosophy.'The debate over the status of mathematics in the sixteenth century signaled the beginning of a structural shift on the medieval map of knowledge toward a different understanding of the place of mathematics' (Rivka Feldhay, 'The use and abuse of mathematical entities: Galileo and the Jesuits revisited' pp 85-88, in The Cambridge Companion to Galileo).Galileo owned a copy of this work and Clavius praised it as inspirational in his introduction to his commentary on Euclid's Elements.The work is dedicated to Cardinal Daniele Barbaro (1513-1570), mathematician, architect, and translator and commentator on Vitruvius. Barbaro was friends with Palladio and Tasso. He also served as Venetian ambassador to the court of Edward VI in London.Barozzi (1537-1604), a Venetian patrician, taught mathematics at the University of Padua. His 'edition of Proclus's commentary on the first book of Euclid's Elements was the first important translation of this work, for it was based on better manuscripts than previous efforts had been' (DSB).Provenance: my copy, sold to Beltrame library in 1998Riccardi I 82.2; OCLC records Burndy (Huntington), Harvard, Wisconsin, Yale, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma for North America

         1560 Geneva Bible; First Edition

      Rouland Hall 1560 - Bible in English [The Geneva Bible, First Edition] THE BIBLE AND HOLY SCRIPTURES CONTEYNED IN THE OLDE AND NEWE TESTAMENT, TRANSLATED ACCORDING TO THE EBRUE AND GREKE, AND CONFERRED WITH THE BEST TRANSLATIONS IN DIVERS LANGUGES . GENEVA: PRINTED BY ROULAND HALL, 1560. 4to (9 x 6 3/4 in.; 229 x 172 mm). Roman type, text in double columns, divided into verses, woodcut vignette on general title-page (lacking), repeated for New Testament title-page (present), 25 woodcut text illustrations. Textually complete, beginning with the Chapter Title of the Book of Genesis. Later calf binding. Includes a custom book box for its continued protection and preservation. First edition of the "Geneva Bible," the first complete Bible in English printed in roman type with verse divisions. "More scholarly than any previous translation, it was largely the work of William Whittingham (1524?–79), afterwards Dean of Durham, Thomas Sampson (1517?–89) and Anthony Gilby (d. 1585)" (PMM). In contrast to Tyndale's and Coverdale's early versions, the tenor of the Geneva Bible's arguments and explanatory notes was Calvinist rather than Lutheran. In the New Testament the terms "elder" and "congregation" replaced "priest" and "church." The notes to the Apocalypse are stridently anti-Papist, for instance the scarlet woman of Revelation 17:4 is identified as "the Antichrist, that is, the Pope with ye whole bodie of his filthie creatures." "The community of Marian exiles in Geneva who translated and printed this first edition followed the distinctive features of contemporary French Genevan Bibles—convenient size, roman type, numbered verse divisions, and the inclusion of historical tables, explanatory pictures, plans, and maps . These visual aids reflect Genevan concern that even the 'simple reader' should understand obscure passages of scripture" (Luborsky & Ingram). Another innovation in the Bible was the introduction of many famous phrases that were retained in the Authorized Version, such as "smite them hip and thigh," and "vanity of vanities." Although never formally adopted in England, the Geneva Bible remained the most popular of all versions for three generations, with one hundred and forty editions printed between 1560 and 1644.

         APRILIS [The twelve months with views of Dutch towns; set title]

      Representation of the month of April within the series of the 'Twelve months with views on Dutch towns'. Here is 'Het Leeprosen huys by Haerlem', the hospital for the leprous and mentally ill people in Haarlem as it looked in the beginning of the seventeenth century. As a matter of fact this etching is a real document of a building complex that was heavily remodelled during the centuries according to its different functions. In 1320 begun the building of the hospital, just outside the city walls. Here were taken for the quarantine the sicks from lepra and plague but also, since 1560, mentally ill people. This was probably the oldest health institution in the Netherlands. On the left the Sint-Jacobskapel (ca. 1319-1477) and in the center the buildings for the mentally ill. In the foreground a portion of a field where peasants are sowing; on the right foreground two gentlemen on horseback overlooking the landscape. On the right background some boats on a canal. In the sky, above in the center the zodiacal sign of the Taurus. Inscribed on the bottom:'APRILIS' and four lines of Latin text:'Si Ver nidificum venit, et aeidis ... novis seminibus seges.' numbered on the bottom right:'4' Etching on paper, trimmed to platemark; total: 275 x 363 mm; crease on the top right margin, on the sky, top left corner slightly damages but not affecting the plate; wonderful impression; Franken & van der Kellen (1883) nr. 153, p. 81; hollstein 37

         The secretes of the reverend Maister Alexis of Piemont. Containing excellent remedies against divers diseases, woundes, and other accidentes, with the maner to make distillations, parfumes, confitures, dyinges, colours, fusions, and meltinges...

      Nycolas England. 1560-62. Part 1 8vo, parts 2 & 3 4to. 3 vols bound in one. Twentieth century full brown calf, spine with raised bands and black morocco gilt lettering piece; pp. [vi] + 122 + [10]; [iv] + 161 + [15]; 79 + [9], bound with engraved title pages; long contemporary manuscript note to verso of title page of vol 1, occasional marginal notes in ink, discreet repairs to edges of a few leaves in vol 3, a little faint browning, otherwise very good. Third English edition of vol 1, first English editions of vols 2 & 3. Translated from French by William Warde. This is a rare, early collection of these celebrated books, attributed to Girolamo Ruscelli (1500-1566), an Italian alchemist and physician. It deals primarily with pharmaceutical subjects but also gives guidance on, for instance, dyeing animal skins and making invisible ink. The work marks the swelling interest in Paracelsian, experimental medicine and the rejection of Galen's teaching; many of the medicines and cures described are highly dramatic, and often involve incredibly cruel processes such as melting a red-haired dog in oil. Others seem purely superstitious, such as giving a woman a boiled hare concoction for breakfast to gauge how fertile she is. It was hugely influential, especially in Britain where natural philosophers such as Francis Bacon were to follow the experimental example, and was translated into every European language. It was the first book to introduce the idea of science as a search for the secrets of nature, with Alessio as a wandering professor of the arcane. Indeed, later writings by Ruscelli claim that the Secretes were the result of work by his very own 'Academy of Secrets' that he founded with a group of humanists in Naples in the 1540s, the first recorded scientific society. This, then, is a work that helped to usher in the Scientific Revolution. Tomita 3 and 9; Levinson Catalogue 60 I 17 (1595 edition) "it is one of our early sources for the history of psychiatry".

         Meubles

      Paris: circa 1560. The set of 46 engravings, plates 190 x 140 mm, sheets 320 x 210 mm, good impressions, watermark Edmond de (?), with margins. 19th-century calf gilt. Four plates re-margined, old reinforcements along gutters, occasional pale staining and paper toning, otherwise in good condition. Provenance: purchased from Librairie de Nobele, 1982. In the 16th century, Du Cerceau and Jan Vredeman de Vries each issued albums of furniture designs, the first of their kind to appear. The plates show beds, tables, one chair, twenty buffets and armoires so elaborate that no ordinary cabinetmaker could have made them. The buffets are especially ornate, displaying caryatids, sphinxes, masks, garlands of fruit or flowers, trophies, vases, etc. "Although many pieces are shown built on platforms to raise them off cold stone and tile floors, comfort appears to have been a minor consideration. The beds are shallow wooden boxes with all sorts of decorative protuberances-lion masks, swans, snakes, and monsters-on which to bruise the human body" (Janet Byrne, Renaissance Ornament Prints and Drawings, New York, 1981, p.110). From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

      Copper engraving, mm 280x400, signe and dated Venetjis æneis formis Bolognini Zalterij Anno. MDLXVI (1566).Perfect wide margined copy with original marginsA MILESTONE IN CARTOGRAPHY OF NORTH AMERICA. THE FIRST MAP ENTIRELY DEVOTED TO THE CONTINENT AND THE FIRST DETAILED MAP TO SHOW THE STRAIT OF ANIAN SEPARATING ASIA AND AMERICA. The map was engraved by the veronese Paolo Forlani, as recently stated by Woodward, and not by Bolognino Zaltieri as previously attributed, who published the second state (like ours) adding his name to the plate. It is the first detailed available map to depict the Strait of Anian; a few previous maps had already depicted the Strait of Anian, (whose name origins from a Marco Polo's 1559 edition), but not with such detail, being all world maps. Forlani based his map largely on the western part of a Gastaldi world map published from 1561, even if important sources are also Cartier's discoveries (1534-42), and some spanish explorations, like the Francisco Vasques de Coronado one (1540-42):Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), 80; David Woodward, "The Forlani Map of North America," Imago Mundi 46 (1994): 29-40; Burden, The Mapping of North America, 33; Meurer (Strabo) 191; Cohen, "Mapping of the West", pages 29-30.

         Io. Fernelii Ambiani de abditis rerum causis libri duo, postremo ab ipso authore recogniti, compluribusque in locis aucti, ad Henricum Franciae Regem Christianissimum . Editio postrema

      Parisiis, Apud Andream Wechelum 1560. In-8 relié plein vélin à recouverment de l'époque. Titre, 425, 36 pages et 1 feuillet blanc, marque de l'imprimeur au recto du dernier feuillet. Papier jauni par endroit, mouillure marginale sans aucune gravité. Dans son traité De abditis rerum causis, Fernel décrit les maladies épidémiques, endémiques, virulentes et contagieuses dont la syphilis, l'éléphantiasis et la rage, très négligées par la littérature médicale de son temps. Il développe une doctrine étiologique selon laquelle les maladies contagieuses épidémiques et pernicieuses ne se propagent que s'il existe des prédispositions dans la population. Enfin il crée le terme de physiologie et s'intéresse à la « chaleur innée », que nous appelons aujourd'hui température corporelle. Troisième édition des dialogues de Jean Fernel, médecin du roi Henri II. Bel exemplaire.

         La Prima Parte dell'historie del Peru [together with] La Seconda Parte delle Historie Generali dell’ India.

      1560 - A fine example of two important early chronicles of discovery, illustrated with a large copy of Bellere´s map of the Americas. 1560 and 1557. Venice. Giordano Ziletti and Andrea Arrivabene. Two works bound in one, 4to (155 x 100 mm). 1 ff., [16], 216, [2] pages, one fold out woodcut map; 1 ff., [32], 324 pp. Contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in ink, slightly faded, rubbed, with traces of marbled paper. Both works in fine, fresh, and wide-margined copies; map folded, also in very good condition. 25,000 $ A fine and genuine copy of two famous accounts of Spanish adventures in the New World: the first, by Pedro Cieza de León (1520-1554) is the work he wrote after returning from the New World, ‘La Prima Parte dell'historie del Peru’; the second, by Francisco López de Gómara (c.1511-c.1566), “the first history of Mexico printed” (Wagner). Cieza de Leon´s work stands with those of Xerez and Zarate as the most reliable and early chronicles of Peru; Cieza had become a conquistador after seeing Hernando Pizarro return from the Indies laden with treasure as a boy, and participated in several campaigns in present-day Colombia and Lima. He was the first historian to write a global history of the Andes. His work describes military campaigns against rebellious natives, expeditions to make contacts with remote rulers supposedly possessed of enormous wealth, and the everyday hardships of life in South America. He often used native informants, and picked up local habits quickly: he describes making a breastplate out of tapir skin. “The first part.was the only one to be published in the sixteenth century. It describes the geography, history, and ethnology of the Viceroyalty of Peru.” (Hill 297). Lopez de Gómara was not a conquistador, but had direct access to Hernán Cortés and the other explorers returning from the New World. He compiled their accounts into a general history of Spanish activity in the area, albeit one which emphasised the role of Cortés, his voyages and expedition to Cuba, Santo Domingo, and Honduras, and the conquest of Mexico. Furthermore it includes valuable details on the life in America, native languages, ethnographical material, and what little information was available on California and the Southwest at such an early date (records Cortés’ expeditions to the western coast; the discovery and naming of California; the Ulloa voyages along the coast of Upper California; the preliminary journey to Cibola of Fray Marcos de Niza; and the expedition to the fabled Seven Cities by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado). ““Including the expeditions of Cortés in 1535, Francisco de Ulloa in 1539, and Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo in 1542” (Mathes). Cortes´ biography is tightly linked t the history of Mexico; Gomara´s work was swiftly supressed (1553, by order the Crown), possibly due to Cortes´ family opposition and claims to their rights in Mexico–which naturally included copious details of the Conqueror´s life. Despite this prohibition, this early chronicle of the new Continent was re-printed several times in the 16th century, and translated into Italian, English, French, and other languages. Lopez de Gomara (c.1511 – 1559) was secretary to Cortes upon his return to Spain, and praises him much –looked upon as a valiant men, and a hero- a position that allowed him access to otherwise secret and first-hand sources of information. It was in fact, the most frequently cited history of the American territories, even when defending Spanish actions in the colonization process. Of particular interest is the map in López de Gómara’s work of the Americas, after the original by the Antwerp-based scholar and printer Jean Bellère, which is “excessively rare” (Burden). For his depiction of North America, Bellère used details from the explorations of Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón, Estêvão Gomes and João Álvares Fagundes, which accounts for the extraordinary number of place names for so early a map.

Madrid, widow of Alonso M. de Balboa, 1617. Folio. With woodcut coat of arms on title-page, repeated at the end of books 1, 2 and 3. Contemporary parchment.

      Alt-Japan-Katalog 1151; Cordier, Japonica, cols 290-291; Palau 226932. Rare first edition of a history of the persecution of Christian missionaries in Japan and Japanese converts to Christianity, written in Spanish by the Portuguese Jesuit Luys Piñeyro (1560-1620). The history is in five books followed by lists of martyrs, a table of chapter titles, etc. Initially the religious activities of the Jesuits, who arrived in 1549, were tolerated by the Japanese government. Upon seeing the brutal converting methods and the destruction of Japanese temples outside the metropolitan provinces, Shogun Hideyoshi changed his policy towards the Christians in 1587. Churches were demolished, and priests were ordered to leave the country. In 1616 a new edict was issued, ordering not only the expulsion of foreign priests but also demanding the death penalty for Japanese Christians who refused to renounce their beliefs. Many of the deported priests simply defied the Japanese government and returned to Japan, but only few were actually executed. The present work describes the background to the deteriorating relations between the Japanese rulers and the representatives of Christianity. Piñeyro also deals with the determination of the Jesuits to continue to preach their religion even in the face of persecution.Early ownerships inscription at foot of title-page. In very good condition, with ample margins and crisp paper.

         Iconologia, of uytbeeldingen des verstands: ... Om uyt te drucken, en te vinden, 't begrip van alle sinnebeelden, invallen, devijsen of sinteykenen. ...Amsterdam, Dirck Pietsz. Pers, 1644. 4to. With engraved allegorical frontispiece and 196 emblematic woodcut illustrations (ca. 8.5 x 6 cm) in the text by Jan Christoffel Jegher. Parchment (ca. 1725?).

      Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 683; Praz, p. 474. First Dutch edition, newly and extensively illustrated, of a famous encyclopaedia of iconology, the Iconologia of Cesare Ripa (1560- 1645). It describes about 650 symbolic human or semi-human figures, illustrates nearly 200, and was intended as a guide for all kinds of artists, writers, orators and amateurs. In the present 1644 edition the Amsterdam publisher, bookseller and poet Dirck Pietersz. Pers (1581-1659) translated and edited Ripa's text and Castellini's additions and made further additions of his own. He also included 196 woodcut illustrations cut for this edition based on a selection of those in the 1630 edition. It was in this form that Ripa's work was best known to artists in the Dutch golden age and it remained in use by painters and designers for the decorative arts far into the 18th century. With water stains throughout, serious in the first few and last few leaves, and marginal tears or restorations in a few leaves, but still in good condition and with large margins. The binding is uniformly abraded but structurally sound. An important source of knowledge and inspiration for artists of the Dutch golden age.

      Frankfurt, David Zöpffel, um 1560. - circa 15,5 x 10,5 cm. 144 Blatt (das letzte weiss), mit zahlreichen Textholzschnitten Pergament d. 19. Jh. "VD 16, R 3113. Adams I, 89; Cantamessa, II, 3889, Anm. Sechster Druck dieser Sammlung kurioser Traktate zu verschiedenen okkulten Wissenschaften wie Handlesekunst, Wahrsagen aus Gesichtszügen, Astrologie etc. von Johannes Indagine (um 1467-1537; eigentlich Johannes von Hagen, auch Johannes Rosenbach). "Überregionale Bedeutung gewann Indagine auf dem Gebiet der damals ebenso modischen wie umstrittenen Astrologie sowie auf den damit verwandten Feldern der Chiromantie und Physiognomie. Er beriet u. a. die Kurfürsten von Mainz und Brandenburg vor der Kaiserwahl 1519, und es scheint, daß seine Horoskope eine Verschiebung des Wahltermins mitbewirkt haben. Die möglicherweise erstrebte Stelle eines Hofastrologen bei Karl V. hat er nicht erreicht. 1522 veröffentlichte Indagine seine 'Introductiones apotelesmaticae'. Dieses bis in das ausgehende 17. Jh. trotz päpstlicher Indizierung häufig nachgedruckte Werk mit dem von Hans Baldung Grien angefertigten Porträt Indagines auf dem Titelblatt und den veranschaulichenden Holzschnitten Hans Wechtlins im Innern hat im Deutschland der frühen Neuzeit wesentlichen Anteil an der Verbreitung der Lehre von der Deutung des Körperbaues, des Gesichts und der Handlinien. Indagine beruft sich wiederholt auf Julius Firmicus, Marsilius Ficinus u. a., doch erheben eigenständige Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen sein Werk über eine reine Kompilation" (NDB X, 168).Die schönen Holzschnitte zeigen neben dem Verfasser auf dem Titel jeweils paarweise gegenübergestellte physiognomische Portraits, figürliche Planetenbilder sowie chiromantische und magisch-astrologische Holzschnitt-Figuren. - VD 16 datiert "um 1560".

      Alt-Japan-Katalog 1151; Cordier, Japonica, cols 290-291; Palau 226932. Rare first edition of a history of the persecution of Christian missionaries in Japan and Japanese converts to Christianity, written in Spanish by the Portuguese Jesuit Luys Piñeyro (1560-1620). The history is in five books followed by lists of martyrs, a table of chapter titles, etc. Initially the religious activities of the Jesuits, who arrived in 1549, were tolerated by the Japanese government. Upon seeing the brutal converting methods and the destruction of Japanese temples outside the metropolitan provinces, Shogun Hideyoshi changed his policy towards the Christians in 1587. Churches were demolished, and priests were ordered to leave the country. In 1616 a new edict was issued, ordering not only the expulsion of foreign priests but also demanding the death penalty for Japanese Christians who refused to renounce their beliefs. Many of the deported priests simply defied the Japanese government and returned to Japan, but only few were actually executed. The present work describes the background to the deteriorating relations between the Japanese rulers and the representatives of Christianity. Piñeyro also deals with the determination of the Jesuits to continue to preach their religion even in the face of persecution.Early ownerships inscription at foot of title-page. In very good condition, with ample margins and crisp paper.

Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con piccoli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Le lastre del Pittoni furono successivamente ristampate, nel 1582, nell’opera di Vincenzo Scamozzi "Discorsi sopra l'Antichità di Roma". Queste prove, più stanche, recano al verso il testo descrittivo. Gli esemplari di prima tiratura, sono da considerarsi molto rari. Etching and engraving, 1560, signed in the plate in the bottom center. Example in the first state of two, before the writing on the reverse. Magnificent proof, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the copperplate or with small margins, in excellent condition. The plates by Pittoni were later reprinted in 1582 and included in the Vincenzo Scamozzi "Discorsi sopra l'Antichità di Roma", where the views are weaker and with a descriptive text, on verso.

         A Profitable Booke of Maister Iohn Perkins, Felowe of the Inner.

      1560 - -->**Fol. 91 supplied in facsimile**. Rare Imprint of A Profitable Booke That is Not Listed in Beale Perkins, John [d. 1545]. A Profitable Booke of Maister Iohn Perkins, Felowe of the Inner Temple Treating of the Lawes of Englande. [London]: Apud Richardum Totell, [c.1560-1565]. 19, 168 ff., [1] pp. Leaf F7 (Fol. 39) and fore-edge of Leaf N3 (Fol. 91) supplied in facsimile Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary calf, recently rebacked in period style, blind rules to boards, gilt-edged raised bands and gilt title to spine. A few scratches and creases to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, corners and a few sections of board edges worn, pastedowns removed. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, light edgwear to some leaves. Early owner initials to title page in miniscule hand, annotations in similar hand to margins of a few leaves. An appealing copy of a rare imprint. $750. * Early edition of a work first published in 1528. Main text in Law-French, preface in Latin. A popular work during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries that was held in high regard by Coke, Perkins' Profitable Booke went through numerous editions in both English and Law-French. Devoted mostly to the land law as developed in the Year Books, it is divided into the following topics: grants, deeds, feoffments, exchanges, dower, curtesy, wills, devises, surrenders, reservations, and conditions. This copy does not have a publication date, but its colophon, pagination and printing errors suggest either 1560 or 1565. The colophon reads: "Imprinted at Lon-/ don in fletestrete with-/ in temple barre, at the signe of/ the hande and starre, by/ Richarde Tottle"; leaf 154 is numbered 167. All of the imprints listed in Beale have printed dates. However, Pollard and Redgrave list two undated imprints with the provisional dates of 1560 and 1565. Records on OCLC with an identical colophon, pagination and printing errors of our copy state 1560, except for Harvard, which gives a provisional date of 1559. Our copy thus falls between the 1555 and 1567 Tottel editions. OCLC locates 7 copies. Holdsworth, History of English Law V:388.

        Regionis subalpinae vulgo Piemonte appellatae discriptio, aeneis nostris formis excussa

      Roma 1560 - Importante carta geografica del Piemonte, impressa su singolo foglio reale, per la prima volta stampata a Roma dal Lafrery nel 1560 circa, qui nella successiva ristampa a cura di Petro de’ Nobili, databile all’ultimo decennio del XVI secolo. L’attribuzione alla paternità dell’opera si deve a Roberto Almagià, seguito poi dal Tooley. Sebbene non sia certo quale sia la prima carta a stampa della regione (Perini sostiene che questa derivi da un’anonima carta veneta del 1553), questo lavoro può essere definito come il primo vero rilievo della sola regione, con particolare attenzione per la zona alpina. Orientata con il nord in alto, la carta presenta una toponomastica particolarmente ricca. Della carta esiste un secondo stato con la data aggiunta, 1564; pertanto questo con l’indirizzo di Pietro de Nobili può essere considerato come il terzo, definitivo, stato della mappa. Incisione in rame, in buone condizioni. Pubblicata nel L’Italia e le sue regioni nella bottega dell’incisore, a cura di Vladimiro Valerio, pag. 34, tav. 8. Almagià XVIII; Tooley 446; Perini p. 43. Interesting geographic map of Piedmont, printed on a single large sheet, published for the first time in Rome by Lafrery around 1560, here presented in the second edition published by Petro de’ Nobili at end of the XVI century. The attribution of this work is due to Roberto Almagià, followed afterwards by Tooley. Though it is not the first printed map of the region (Perini states it derives from an anonymous Venetian map of 1553), this work can be defined as the first analysis concerning uniquely the Piedmont, particularly the Alps. Oriented from North to South, the map presents many toponyms. A second state, bearing the date 1564, is known; therefore, the present one with the address of Pietro de Nobili can be considered as the third, final state of the map. Copper engraving, in excellent condition. Published inside the L’Italia e le sue regioni in the artits’ workshop, edited by Vladimiro Valerio, pag. 34, tav. 8. Almagià XVIII; Tooley 446; Perini p. 43. Dimensioni
