        Cytisus Columellae/ Cytisus V.Clusy.

      Artist: Besler Basilius ( - 1629) Nuremberg; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca 1613 1561 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Right margin some restorations; - size (in cm): 47 x 38; - description: 4 beautiful representations of Fabaceae 1.edition of the Hortus Eystettensis, printed and issued from the Basilius Besler in Nuremberg 1613. This year is the 400 anniversary of the first edition!; -vita of the artist: Basilius Besler (1561?1629) was a respected Nuremberg apothecary and botanist, best known for his monumental Hortus Eystettensis. He was curator of the garden of Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, prince bishop of Eichstätt in Bavaria. The bishop was an enthusiastic botanist who derived great pleasure from his garden, which was the only important European botanical garden outside Italy. The work was named Hortus Eystettensis (Garden at Eichstätt). The emphasis in botanicals of previous centuries had been on medicinal and culinary herbs, and these had usually been depicted in a crude manner. The images were often inadequate for identification, and had little claim to being aesthetic. The Hortus Eystettensis changed botanical art overnight. The plates were of garden flowers, herbs and vegetables, exotic plants such as castor-oil and arum lilies. These were depicted near life-size, producing rich detail. The layout was artistically pleasing and quite modern in concept, with the hand-colouring adding greatly to the final effect. The work was first published in 1613 and consisted of 367 copper engravings, with an average of three plants per page, so that a total of 1084 species were depicted. [Attributes: First Edition]

Anno 63' e sul frontespizio 'Georgius Gebelius Rothenburgensis mutuo dedit humiliter Laurentio Erleri Anno 1563', a p. 541 figura la seguente nota, probabilmente della stessa mano 'Iste liber finitus est septimo die octobris a D.M.

        MAP OF THE WORLD: ORBIS DESCRIPTIO.

      Copper engraving (Very Good, slight traces from the text on the back), 23,5 x 32 cm (9.2 x 12,6 inches). - Venice: Vincenzo Valgrisi 1561. This classic 16th century map of the world was published in La geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino, nuouamente tradotta di Greco in Italiano, by a Venetian author Girolamo Ruscelli, and was based on Giacomo Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. The map is adapted from the oval projection used in Gastaldi's larger world map and is presented on Roger Bacon's circular projection, also used by Tramezzino's large world map of 1554. This is the first state of the map, when two maps were still engraved on one plate and the images were separated after printing. That is why the upper part of the plate does not have a neatline.

        De Re Medica, libri tres: Jacobo Sylvio medico interprete.

      Parisiis, Apud Aegidium Gorbinum, 1561, 8, (14), 200 leaves, Pergamenteinband der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschild einige Seiten angegossen etwas fleckig trotz der Fehler ein schönes Exemplar. Another of the more than forty works attributed to Mesuë the Younger, this one deals with the principles of medicine and the use of drugs, laxatives, and antidotes."Masawayh al-Mardini (known in the West as Mesuë the Younger) is supposed to have been a Jacobite Christian who lived in the tenth century. Since none of his writings has been found in its original language and no Arabian historian or bibliographer seems to know him, it is now believed that a Latin author (perhaps an Italian) of the early thirteenth century assumed the name of Mesuë, hoping thereby to gain ready recognition for his works under the guise of the ninth century Syrian physician who wrote in Arabic. At any rate, his writings were accepted as genuinely Arabian and held such a place of importance that" it passed through more than 30 editions up to 1581 and influenced all later pharmacopeias.This is an early translation from the Arabic by Jacques Dubois, known as Sylvius."Jacques Dubois (1478-1555) a most able anatomist and one often quoted both by contemporaries and by medical men for many years to follow, Dubois (also known as Jacobus Sylvius) was Vesalius' teacher at the University of Paris. He was a staunch Galenist and, when Vesalius cast open doubt on much of Galenic "law," Dubois turned on his former pupil, denounced him, and thus caused Vesalius some of the unhappiness which was later to accumulate to such a great degree."

        CHRONOGRAPHIA O REPORTORIO DE LOS TIEMPOS EL MAS COPIOSO Y PRECISO QUE HAST AHORA HA SALIDO A LUZ.

      Seville: Juan Gutierrez, 1561. - [9],219 leaves. Woodcut map of the New World on verso of leaf i4, woodcut map of Eastern Hemisphere on verso of leaf i1. Woodcut illustrations and initials throughout. Woodcut portrait of the author on the titlepage. Small quarto. Contemporary limp vellum. Fore-edge of titlepage worn and with several small closed tears but no loss of content. Institutional ink stamp of the Jesuit College at Cordoba on verso of titlepage. Several instances of neat, early ink notes and emendations. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. The extremely rare fourth edition of Chaves' important early work on chronography and astronomy, featuring an early map of the New World. The first edition appeared in Seville in 1548, followed by editions printed in that same city in 1550 and 1554. Chaves (1523-74) was a distinguished mathematician, cosmographer, and poet living in Seville, and the first occupant of the chair for cosmography at the Casa de Contractacion. He was one of the first cosmographers to publish a map of the New World, appearing on the verso of leaf 68 in this edition. Chaves' New World map is an early and notable map of North American and South America. Burden notes that the map "does show knowledge of some of the latest geographical findings; the Gulf of California and Cartier's expeditions in Canada. The Yucatan is correctly shown as a peninsula." The map is surrounded by twelve named windheads. The map of the Eastern Hemisphere names the continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa. The illustrations include several representations of solar eclipses with their future dates of occurrence, as well as astrological symbols (with attendant tables). EUROPEAN AMERICANA states that the first Gutierrez edition printed in Seville appeared in 1566, inexplicably neglecting to note the present edition. The present edition is listed in Palau, who also locates a copy in the British Museum that is without a date but is assumed to be 1561. OCLC and NUC together locate only four additional copies of this 1561 edition, at the University of Arizona, Dartmouth, Indiana University, and the John Carter Brown Library. Very rare, and with an important map. ADAMS C-1422 PALAU 67452. MEDINA, BHA 186. BM STC (SPANISH), p.23. SHIRLEY 86A. BURDEN 15. JCB 1:211. OCLC 2471493.

"The twelve books of Agricola's treatise...embrace everything connected with Renaissance mining and metallurgical industries, including administration, the duties of companies and workers, prospecting, mechanical engineering, ore processing and the manufacture of glass, sulfur and alum. Book VI provides detailed descriptions of 16th-century mining technologies, such as the use of water-power for crushing ore and the improvements in suctions pumps and ventilation that became necessary as mine shafts were sunk deeper underground; it also includes an account of the diseases and accidents prevalent among miners, along with the means of preventing them.

        Opera omnia. Middelburg, Zacharias Roman, 1663 (parts 1635-1663). 9 works in 1 volume. Folio. With an engraved general title-page, 10 letterpress title-pages (1 with an engraved view; the other 9 each with any of 6 different woodcut astronomical diagrams), full-page portrait of Lansbergius by W. Delff, 1 folding and 4 double-page engraved plates and 1 large folding letterpress table, many diagrams and tables in text. Contemporary vellum.

      Bierens de Haan 2678; STCN (7 copies); DSB VIII, pp. 27-28; NNBW II, cols. 775-782; cf. Vermij, The Calvinist Copernicans, pp. 73-99. The complete mathematical and astronomical works, in Latin, of (Johan) Philip van Lansberge (1561-1632), one of the most famous mathematicians and astronomers of the Dutch Republic during its golden age. These collected works were published by Zacharias Roman at Middelburg who had also published many of Lansberge's works separately. He assembled the present compete works primarily by reissuing the separate editions that had been printed earlier, but printed new preliminaries, the previously unpublished Horologium and apparently parts of the Tabulae motum coelestium. We number them here according to the numbered list of contents in the preliminaries, but there are several bibliographical irregularities. What we call item 4.5 does not appear in the list but is apparently a normal part of the book. Item 5 (the Horologium) is the first edition, published 31 years after Lansbergius's death and item 4.5 (the Sphaera plana) is the first Latin edition.With an early owner's name on the half-title, repeated with another at the head of the dedication, all difficult to decipher, but clearly Geo[rge] ... and probably ... Brook. The binding with some small cuts and somewhat dirty. In good condition.The Opera contain the following works, all with many woodcut illustrations in the text:- 1-2: Triangulorum geometriae libri quattuor ... Item Cyclometriae novae libri duo. Ab autore recognita, multisque in locis aucta. Middelburg, Zacharias Roman, 1663.- 3: Uranometriae libri tres. In quibus lunae, solis, & reliquorum planetarum, & inerrantium stellarum distantiae à terra, & magnitudines, hactenus ignoratae perspicue demonstrantur. Middelburg, Zacharias Roman, 1662.- 4: In quadrantem tum astronomicum, tum geometricum; nec non in astrolabium introductio.

      Venezia 1561 - Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1561. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare in meravigliosa coloritura coeva. Carta tratta dalla Geographia di Claudio Tolomeo, a cura del Ruscelli, pubblicata in Venezia in più edizioni tra il 1561 ed il 1598. La carta è basata sulla medesima opera di Giacomo Gastaldi (1548), che probabilmente disegnò personalmente anche queste mappe, incise dai fratelli Livio e Giulio Sanuto. La peculiarità di queste mappe è che sono incise due per lastra e successivamente tagliate, di conseguenza il segno del rame appare solo su tre lati per ogni mappa. Il testo di Ruscelli e le sue carte sono considerate come il miglior atlante moderno fino alla prima versione del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius del 1570. Solo la loro enorme diffusione ne impedisce una valutazione sostenuta nel mercato antiquario. ORIGINAL COLOURING!!!! Etching with engraving, about 1561. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in perfect condition. Example in wonderful contemporary coloring. The map comes from Ptolemy's Geographia, edited by Ruscelli, published in Venice in multiple editions between 1561 and 1598. The map is based on the same work of Giacomo Gastaldi (1548), which probably also personally drew these maps, engraved by the brothers Livio and Giulio Sanuto. The peculiarity of these maps is that they are recorded two for plate and subsequently cut, consequently the sign of the copper appears only on three sides for each map. The text of Ruscelli and his maps are considered as the best modern atlas to the first version of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius of 1570. Only their ubiquity prevents an assessment supported in the antique market. Dimensioni 270 190mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The woorkes of Geffrey Chaucer, newly printed,

      (colophon: Imprinted at London, by Jhon Kyngston, for Jhon Wight,), 1561. with divers addicions, whiche were never in printe before: With the siege and destruccion of the worthy citee of Thebes, compiled by Jhon Lidgate, Monke of Berie. As in the table more plainly dooeth appere. Folio (328 x 216 mm). Late 19th-century red morocco by Riviere, spine gilt lettered direct and decorated with blind tooled rules and scrolling floriate motifs, sides with concentric blind tooled ornamental panels and Tudor roses, all edges gilt, blind ruled turn-ins. Large woodcut of Chaucer's arms on title, broad woodcut border to divisional titles for Canterbury Tales and Romaunt of the Rose (both showing Henry VIII at the head), woodcut of the Knight heading the text of the Canterbury Tales, woodcut initials. Neat book label (dated 1899) of the Irish judge William O'Brien (1832-1899), whose discerning library is a microcosm of late 19th-century taste in book collecting, and included a handful of medieval manuscripts, incunabula, Aldine editions, three Shakespeare folios, 16th-century English books and handsome editions of English literature; subsequent labels of Milltown Park Library; title page and first leaf of Prologue with some restoration at margins, some leaves with repairs to closed-tears, very occasional light staining, repairs and marginal restoration to final leaf 3v8 (affecting a few letters), some leaves professionally washed. First Stow edition, the fifth edition overall of Chaucer's collected works, the issue without the woodcuts in the Prologue. The traditional view of the two issues of this 1561 edition has been that the illustrated issue was printed first, and then the cuts omitted in the second issue because the woodblocks were worn out. Recently however, it has been contested that the printer came into possession of the cuts belatedly, and the unillustrated issue appeared first (see David R. Carlson, "The Woodcut Illustrations in Early Printed Editions of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales", in Chaucer Illustrated: Five Hundred Years of the Canterbury Tales in Pictures, British Library, 2003). This was the first publication of the historian John Stow (1524/5–1605), who had earlier worked on William Thynne's Chaucer edition of 1532. Now primarily remembered for his Survey of London (1598), Stow was an antiquary whose work rivalled and complemented that of his friend Camden. Derek Pearsall has shown how Stow's scholarly skills were slighted because of his humble origins and his trade as a tailor, held to be inappropriately lowly to introduce England's first poet. It was Thomas Speght who belittled Stow, yet he was happy to incorporate notes which Stow supplied him into his own 1598 edition. There were several editions of Chaucer during the 16th-century and this one may well have been used by Shakespeare as a source-book for the story of Troilus and Cressida. Provenance: 16th-century ownership signature on title page of "H. Westfaling" (also initialed "H. W." on divisional title to Canterbury Tales), probably Herbert Westfaling (or Westphaling) - or possibly his son, also Herbert - of Mansell Gamage, Herefordshire, bishop of Hereford. Herbert Westfaling's family originated in Westphalia and he entered Christ Church in 1547 aged fifteen. Archbishop Parker mentioned him in 1570 as a possible bishop of Oxford and he was consecrated bishop of Hereford in January 1586, where he was known for his zeal in converting Roman Catholics, "and was regarded by the lords in council as a fit and able person to be employed in conferences with Jesuits and other recusants... His personal library contained works by leading reformers of his time, his will mentioning the works of Calvin in folio, which he donated to Christ Church, Oxford, and nine volumes by Wolfgang Musculus, which he bequeathed to Hereford Cathedral Library. Shortly before his death he donated £20 to the Bodleian Library for the purchase of new books" (ODNB). Westfaling was "known for his gravity" (ibid.) and Francis Godwin, who succeeded him as bishop of Hereford, commented that he had scarcely ever seen him laugh. There is some inked marginalia (presumably in his hand), largely noting particular – and perhaps unfamiliar - words used by Chaucer, but at the end of the appearance of the Doctor of Physic in the Prologue he remarks against the Doctor's fondness for gold, "Golde is loved of physicions"; and he has marked with a diminutive trefoil device in the margin at folio 101 (The Parson's Tale), and underlined the passage, concerning the fall of Eve and "the delite of the flesh". A complete and handsomely bound copy of one of the most attractive Elizabethan editions of Chaucer.

        La geografia di Claudio Tolomeo. . . .; Espositioni et introduttioni universali. . . .; Discorso universale di M. Gioseppe Moleto mathematico. . .

      Venice: Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1561. FIRST ITALIAN EDITION. Each part with separate title page with large woodcut printer's device. Contemporary half calf with speckled boards; first title page with minor dampstains, but the interior overall excellent. Contemporary ownership inscription on title. First edition of Ruscelli's translation into Italian from Greek of Ptolemy's Geographia. The 64 double-plate copper-engraved maps are enlarged copies of those created by Giacomo Gastaldi for his 1548 edition of Ptolemy and executed by the engravers Giulio and Livio Sanuti. Of special interest here is that Ruscelli's translation is based on the original version in Greek as opposed to a further critical editing of later Latin translations. Ruscelli points out that Ptolemy was Egyptian, and writing in Greek led him to using long sentences and a punctuation that could lead to misinterpretation of his text. Ruscelli is also the first of Ptolemy's translators that actually explains the mathematical projections and location coordinates. He analyzes the various units of measurement in geography and by the end of the first book he describes how to draw a geographic table in a bi-dimensional representation that remains proportional to the earth's orbit, as well as explaining where to print the names of cities, landmarks, etc. on each map. The second part is the Espositioni et introduttioni universali, a treatise on geography, in which Ruscelli confirms that terrestrial spheres on paper (globes) were produced in Italy in the first half of sixteenth century in a limited number and in small sizes, and that he was himself involved in crafting those. In the last part, Discorso universale di M. Giuseppe Moleto mathematico, Moletti addresses the issue of geographical coordinates and how to measure them. He also deals with the Ptolemaic cycles and the origin of the winds related to the use of a compass. Ruscelli (c. 1504-1566) was a Venetian editor that worked for the famous Valgrisi publishing firm as curator of various Italian classics. He introduces several important innovations in this volume through his 37 "modern" maps, which cover Europe, Africa, Asia and the New World. He also includes a double hemisphere world map, very early for an atlas, as well as a rare world sea chart. Also included is Ruscelli's revised and updated Zeno map of the Arctic. First published only three years earlier, the Zeno map describes a purported journey in the 1390's to Greenland, Iceland, the mythical islands of Frisland and Icaria, and what is now thought to be Newfoundland and Labrador. Here, Ruscelli eliminates the land bridge between Greenland and Norway. This map became the standard chart of the Arctic and Greenland for many years. His maps will later serve as a model for the artists that have decorated the Vatican galleries. Giuseppe Moleto or Moletti (1531-1588) was an Italian mathematician and a prominent professor of mathematics at the University of Padua best known for his Dialogo intorno alla meccanica (Dialogue on mechanics). He advised Pope Gregory XIII on establishing his new Gregorian calendar and was certainly acquainted with Galileo, sharing with him works dealing with gravity.

        Le Tre Parche

      1561 - Bulino, 1561, datato in lastra, in alto a destra, nell’iscrizione: "IULIUS MANTUA INVE / H. COCK EXCUDE 1561". Da un disegno di Giulio Romano. La scena rappresenta le tre Parche, Cloto, Lachesi e Atropo, intente a tessere il filo del Fato. L’iscrizione latina, nel margine inferiore, ne ricorda i compiti: Clotho colum baiulat: Lachesis net: Atropos occat Il bulino riproduce l’invenzione di Giulio Romano per un bassorilievo in stucco nella Sala degli Stucchi a Palazzo Te, che occupa la parte centrale del soffitto. Lo stesso soggetto, in controparte, era stato inciso a bulino, qualche anno prima, nel 1558, da Giorgio Ghisi. A lungo si è ritenuto che Cort abbia quindi riprodotto proprio la stampa del Ghisi, sebbene con alcune differenze che riguardano anche l’ambientazione della scena. Poiché il secondo stato della lastra del Ghisi reca il privilegio reale francese, già i Lewis avevano ipotizzato che Giorgio avesse riprodotto un disegno allora disponibile in Francia. Il modello per l’incisione del Cort, dunque, come sostenuto già da H. Hymans, piuttosto che lo stucco, sarebbe stato il medesimo disegno utilizzato dal Ghisi che, del resto, risulta presente ad Anversa dal 1550 al 1555 dove lavora proprio presso la bottega di H. Cock. Le due stampe rappresenterebbero, quindi, due interpretazioni indipendenti del medesimo modello. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, con l’indirizzo di H. Cook. Splendida prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, sporadiche e lievi fioriture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1561. Lettered in top left corner "IULIUS MANTUA INVE / H. COCK EXCUDE 1561". In the margin "CLOTHO COLUM BAIVLAT, LACHESIS NET ATROPOS OCCAT". The scene shows the three Fates; three allegorical women sit together in a compartment spinning wool. The same subject was engraved by Giorgio Ghisi, in 1558. The engraving reproduces the central stucco-relief executed after the design by Giulio Romano in 1530-31 in the Sala degli Stucchi, Palazzo del Te. It has been argued that Cort probably copied it through the engraving of 1558 by Giorgio Ghisi. The French royal privilege added to the second state of Ghisi’s plate suggests that Giulio's drawing found its way to France, and Giorgio Ghisi probably executed his engraving there. This hypothesis makes plausible that Cornelis Cort's reversed version of the same composition was engraved after the same drawing and not copying Ghisi's print. Superb example of the first state of two, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to platemark, occasional foxing, in very good condition.
