Wien, Michael Zimmermann, 1561 - Die erste gedruckte Karte Tirols (noch vor den Kartenwerken von Warmund Ygl und Matthias Burglechner erschienen), sehr selten. - Atlantes Austriaci Zim / Lazius A Nr. 7. Kretschmer S. 810: "Die erste spezielle Karte des gesamten Landes schuf der Wiener Humanist W. Lazius 1561. Die erreichte weite Verbreitung als Kupferstich und seit 1573 durch Aufnahme in niederländische Atlaswerke von A. Ortelius, G. Mercator, G de Jode etc". - "Rhetiae Alpestris in qua Tirolis Com(itatus) descriptio zeigt Tirol auf einem Blatt in Kartengröße 455 x 360 mm und einer Plattengröße von 481 x 373 mm. Die Karte reicht vom unrichtig eingezeichneten Moosburg an der Isar bis Mühldorf am Inn im N und Mantua - Verona im S, im W von Comosee und den viel zu weit gegen N verzeichneten Innquellen bis zur Linie Radstadt - Bad Gastein und Lienz an der Drau im O. . Über die Entstehungszeit meint Feuerstein, die Jahre 1556 - 61 einsetzten zu können, u.zw. auf Grund des im CPV 7864 enthaltenen Gesuchs aus 1556 um Gewährung einer Beisteuer für die Reise nach Tirol und Friaul. Feuerstein meint auch, den Reiseweg Lazius von Kärnten durch Osttirol nach Südtirol aus der Karte ablesen zu können. Der Kartenentwurf beruht auf der Einzeichnung des Gerippes der Haupttäler von Inn, Etsch, Eisack und Drau, wo die Breite des Talbodens gegenüber den Talengen an Eisack und der Veroneserklause besonders hervortritt. Aus der vollkommen falschen Westorinetierung des Eisacklaufes als Fortsetzung des Pustertales von Brixen nach Bozen statt N - S, schließt Feuerstein auf die Verwendung der Deutsch … [Click Below for Full Description]

LANSBERGE (LANSBERGIUS), Philip van.
1561. 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by reissuing the separate editions that had been printed earlier, but printed new preliminaries, the previously unpublished Horologium and apparently parts of the Tabulae motum coelestium.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.

PICCOLOMINI, Alessandro.
Venice: Giordano Ziletti, 1561. Small quarto, with woodcut diagrams in the text; later patterned boards. A treatise on the globe and a survey of contemporary cosmographical knowledge and methodology by a well-known Italian astronomer and cosmographer. A senior figure in the church, a poet, and a writer on philosophy and science, Piccolomini (1508-1578) was appointed archbishop of Patrasso in 1557 and later archbishop of Siena.Piccolomini's Trattato is of interest to the history of antipodean theories: it was in this book that he most strongly argued his views about the make-up of the earth, contradicting the views associated with Aristotle and Ptolemy that there must be more water than land. His belief that the land mass must be greater than the oceans was more than just a disagreement with the classical writers, as it became a controversy played out in print between Piccolomini and his contemporaries Antonio Berga and Giambattista Bennedetti. Several of the 14 chapters here are devoted to the debate (the last, for example, is headed 'Digressione contra una vana imaginatione d'uno scrittore moderno, con laquale si pensa salvare la terra minore dell'acqua... ').The work contains several substantial references to newly-discovered lands, mentioning the Straits of Magellan along with several other references to the Americas, and discusses the Southern Ocean.Alden notes the 1558 edition of this work, but does not mention this one which has an identical collation. Minor staining to last (colophon) leaf and a few margins towards end; a very good copy.

REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes [Georg von PEUERBACH, Daniel SANTBECH
Basel: Heinrich Petri & Peter Perna, 1561. Rare augmented edition of "the first systematic treatise on plane and spheric trigonometry to be published in Europe. Although it drew heavily on Arabic sources, those earlier treatises had been either lost or forgotten by 1533 when Regiomontanuss work was first printed. Among the notable contents of this work are the sine law and perhaps the first European application of algebra to trigonometry. Indeed with De triangulis trigonometry was established as an independent discipline. Regiomontanus' original purpose, however, had been to furnish astronomers with a mathematical technique essential for their studies, and in this De triangulis had a success perhaps greater than its author could have dreamed of. For in 1539 Georg Joachim Rheticus presented a copy of the work's 1533 edition as a gift to Copernicus. The great astronomer had already written the trigonometrically-based portion of his De Revolutionibus without knowledge of his predecessor's treatise. After reading the new book, Copernicus modified the presentation of several of his own indispensable theorems by inserting two leaves in the manuscript of the De Revolutionibus. Hence, Rheticus' remark that Regiomontanus began the reconstruction of astronomy that Copernicus completed takes on a fuller meaning" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, pp. 99-100). This edition is augmented by two early allied treatises: 'Tabula sinuum ad 6000000 partes per I. de Regiomonte computata' and 'Tractatus super propositiones Ptolemaei de sinubus et chordis' by Peurbach. These contain … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUILANDINO (WIELAND, VILLANDINO, GUILANDINUS), Melchior(re).
- Adams G-1561; DSB XIV, pp. 335-336; Pritzel 3637. Second edition of important botanic observations made by Melchior Guilandino (ca. 1520-1589) during his voyage to the Orient. It contains five letters from Guilandino commenting on the work of the botanist Pietro Andrea Mattioli. One addressed to the famous naturalist Konrad Gesner (1516-1565), is followed by Gesner's answer. These letters are of great interest for botanical nomenclature in the 16th century. They are preceded by a prefatory letter by Patricius and followed by an essay by Guilandino describing the bird of paradise.Guilandino studied botany and pharmacology in Rome and became the protégée of Senator Marino Cavalli, Venice's ambassador there. He was a member of the board of the University of Padua and made journeys to Syria, Palestine and Egypt. In 1561, he was asked to become the second director of the Botanical garden at Padova. Manuscript trimmed down when rebound in the 19th-century(?, shaving off an early manuscript inscription on title-page, with a couple faint traces of foxing, thumbing and a minor marginal waterstain, a very small restoration in the lower gutter of the title-page and possibly washed, but still a very good copy.

GRATAROLI, Guglielmo [GRATAROLUS, Gulielmus].
First edition Basel: H. Petri & P. Pernam, 1561. Rare compilation of alchemy works. A fine copy, with provenance, of this very rare and important compilation of alchemical texts: including works by by J bir ibn Hayy n, Roger Bacon, Richardus Anglicus, Robertus Tauladanus, Giovanni Battista da Monte, Arnaldus de Villanova, Albertus Magnus, Ramon Llull, Aristotle, Avicenna, Johannes de Rupescissa, Guglielmo Grataroli, Giovanni Braccesco, and Giovanni Aurelio Augurelli. "Gratarolo was a native of Bergamo, where he was born in 1516. He went through the customary training, and then turned his attention to medicine. Having acquired a liking for Protestantism he settled in Basel in 1555, and remained there till 1562, when he was summoned to Marburg as professor of medicine. He, however, remained only a year there, and returned to Basel, where he practiced medicine and wrote several works." (Ferguson, I, p. 342). Hogart, R. Alchemy, 79; Duveen, D.I. Alchemica et chemica, p. 268; Ferguson, J. Bib. chemica; BM; BN; Hirsch, II, p. 634. Thorndike, V, pp. 600-16.Provenance: Signature from Giovanni Antonio Delfino 1506-1561.

Delfino was deeply involved as a scholar at the College of Spain in Bologna with task of public reader of metaphysics at the University of Bologna, Faculty of artists. Died in 1561 the same year as the printing of the book. Thus the signature must be dated the same year as the book is published in 1561. It … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRANCO, Pierre.
Lyon: Thibauld Payan, 1561. Second edition, almost four times the length of the first (1556), with 25 new illustrations including 22 instruments and three full skeletons. This is Franco's major work, very rare, a copy in an untouched contemporary binding and with a fine provenance. "Pierre Franco, creator of suprapubic lithotomy cataract operation and surgical repair of hernia with preservation of the testis, is considered to be one of the greatest surgeons of the Renaissance and a forerunner of urology" (Androutsos, p. 255). "Franco was influential in bringing operative surgery back into the realm of regular surgical practice, recapturing it from the ignorant hands of charlatans and itinerant "cutters." His major interest was in hernia surgery, to which he introduced several important innovations including an operation preserving the testicle (which was usually removed), a less risky incision at the base of the scrotum and methods for the surgical release of strangulated hernia. Franco was also the first surgeon to address himself seriously to the removal of bladder stones; he gave an account of perineal lithotomy and was the earliest to describe and perform the suprapubic incision" (Norman). Only two copies recorded on ABPC/RBH in the last 80 years. The only other copy we have located in commerce is in Ernst Weil's catalogue 5 (ca. 1947), no. 93 ("of great rarity", £100).

PARE, Ambroise
Paris, Jehan Le Royer, 1561. ____ Nouvelle édition de la 'Briefve collection de l'administration anatomique". Elle est augmentée de plus de 190 feuillets et, pour la première fois, illustrée. On y trouve un beau portrait de Paré à l'age de 45 ans, gravé sur cuivre, et 49 bois gravés. Les figures anatomiques sont d'après Vésale, celles qui concernent la chirurgie, d'après les propres observations de Paré. L'ouvrage est le résultat des nombreuses dissections qu'il a pratiqué avec Isnard Rostan de Binosque. Il s'adresse aux jeunes chirurgiens-barbiers, qui ne connaissant pas le latin n'avaient pas accès aux autres ouvrages d'anatomie. L'ouvrage d'Henri Estienne d'anatomie, publié en français en 1545, était bien trop onéreux pour des apprentis barbiers. Comme le décrit Janet Doe, on trouve des becquets collés sur trois feuillets qui corrigent le texte (feuillets cclxxv, nn4, nn5). Ex-libris manuscrit sur le titre et sous le portrait : Vaugeleen (?). Ex-libris François Moutier. Petite fente au bas d'une charnière, mais très bon exemplaire. Tous les premiers ouvrages d'Ambroise Paré, des livres d'usage et de petit format, sont aujourd'hui rarissimes. ***** New edition of 'Briefve collection de l'administration anatomique", much enlarged (more than 190 folios) and illustrated for the first time. With one copper engraving of Paré aged forty-five and 49 woodcuts, the anatomical ones according to Vesalius, the surgical ones according to Paré's own invention.

Le texte sur deux colonnes est en latin en lettres rondes, et en français en caractères de civilité. Ils imitent l'écriture cursive du temps, telle qu'elle était enseignée dans les écoles.

Le catalogue de la Bibliothèque de la Société de l'Histoire du Protestantisme français, (la seule bibliothèque à Paris a posséder cet ouvrage) annonce que cette lacune est probablement le fait de la censure.

FALLOPPIO, Gabrielle.
Venice: Marco Antonio Ulmo and Gratioso Perchachino, 1561. First edition, very rare, of the greatest Italian anatomical book of the sixteenth century, a detailed critical commentary on Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica. This is a fascinating copy with copious annotations by an early owner, in an untouched contemporary binding. "The large amount of new material [in the present work] included Falloppio's investigations of primary and secondary centers of ossification, the first clear description of primary dentition, numerous contributions to the study of the muscles (especially those of the head), and the famous account of the uterine ("Falloppian") tubes, which he correctly described as resembling small trumpets (tubae). He also gave to the placenta and vagina their present scientific names, provided a superior description of the auditory apparatus (including the first clear accounts of the chorda tympani and semicircular canals), and was the first to clearly distinguish the trochlear nerve of the eye. Vesalius responded positively to Falloppio's work with his posthumously published Examen on Falloppio (1564)" (Norman). "He was a careful dissector, a great observer, and an accurate recorder. He discovered and first described the chorda tympani and semicircular canals, correctly described the structure and course of the cerebral vessels, knew the circular folds of the small intestines. He enumerated all the nerves of the eye, and introduced a number of anatomical names. He is eponymously remembered by the Fallopian tube and the Fallopian aqueduct" (Garrison-Morton).

Besler Basilius ( 1561 - 1629 ) Nuremberg
Artist: Besler Basilius ( - 1629 ) Nuremberg; issued in: Nuremberg; date: 1613 1561 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 27 x 41,5 - description: Titlepage from the Hortus Eystetensis from Basilius Besler. - 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.

Besler, Basilius (1561-1629) Nürnberg
Artist: Besler Basilius (-1629) Nürnberg; issued in: Nürnberg ; date: 1613 1561 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: colored ; condition: Right margin in the middle, missing part restored ; size in cm : 47 x 39 - description: Splendourful representation of 3 Fritillaria is a genus of about 100 to 130 species of bulbous plants in the family Liliaceae, native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, especially the Mediterranean, southwest Asia, and western North America. The name is derived from the Latin term for a dice-box (fritillus) and probably refers to the checkered pattern of the flowers of many species. Plants of the genus are known in English as fritillaries. Some North American species are called mission bells. 1.edition of the Hortus Eystettensis, printed and issued from Basilius Besler in Nuremberg 1613. 2013 was 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 Ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Battista PITTONI detto "Battista Vicentino" (Vicenza 1520 - 1583)
1561. "Acquaforte e bulino, 1561, datata e firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti le scritte al verso e il numero tratto dalla serie ""Praecipua aliquot romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monumenta par baptistam Pittonem vicentinum mense september MDLXI"". Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con piccoli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Le vedute del Pittoni sono ispirate alle opere di Hieronimus Cock del ""Praecipua aliquot romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monumenta"". 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 circa. Example in the first state of two, before the text on verso, taken from ""Praecipua aliquot romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monumenta par baptistam Pittonem vicentinum mense september MDLXI"", inspired by the same work by Hieronimus Cock. 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. The examples of the first edition, are to be considered very rare." Roma Rome Passavant, Le Peintre Graveur, vol. VI, 1 - I/II. 305 216

GASTALDI GIACOMO/RUSCELLI GIOVANNI
1561. Copper engraving, mm 180x245. Engraved by Livio and Giulio Sanudo. Scarce first edition of one of the first separate maps of Cuba. Also includes Jamaica and northwestern Hispaniola and the Cayman Islands. It is a slightly enlarged version of the map which appeared in Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. From Ptolemy's Geographia, edited by Ruscelli, published in Venice in multiple editions between 1561 and 1598.The peculiarity of these maps is that two maps were engraved on one plate together and later separated for the book. This can be seen in the atlas by the fact that the plate mark of the map runs off the top of the page. In 1574 a new plate was used which lasted until the final edition of 1599The text of Ruscelli and his maps are considered as the best modern atlas before the first version of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius of 1570. Very good example, strong impression, light paper discoloration at centerfold.Kapp, Capt. Kit S., in MCC #24 The Printed Maps of Jamaica, #2

GUILANDINO (WIELAND, VILLANDINO, GUILANDINUS), Melchior(re).
Adams G-1561; DSB XIV, pp. 335-336; Pritzel 3637. Second edition of important botanic observations made by Melchior Guilandino (ca. 1544-1589) during his voyage to the Orient. It contains five letters from Guilandino commenting on the work of the botanist Pietro Andrea Mattioli. One addressed to the famous naturalist Konrad Gesner (1516-1565), is followed by Gesner's answer. These letters are of great interest for botanical nomenclature in the 16th century. They are preceded by a prefatory letter by Patricius and followed by an essay by Guilandino describing the bird of paradise.Guilandino studied botany and pharmacology in Rome and became the protégée of Senator Marino Cavalli, Venice's ambassador there. He was a member of the board of the University of Padua and made journeys to Syria, Palestine and Egypt. In 1561, he was asked to become the second director of the Botanical garden at Padova. Manuscript trimmed down when rebound in the 19th-century(?, shaving off an early manuscript inscription on title-page, with a couple faint traces of foxing, thumbing and a minor marginal waterstain, a very small restoration in the lower gutter of the title-page and possibly washed, but still a very good copy.

II: a?t8u4; [4] ff., 301 [i.e., 299], [1 (blank)] pp., [2 (1 blank)] ff.. 1561 or 1563] During his life Bernardino Ochino seems always to have been searching for something more. In 1504 he joined the Observant Franciscans, pursued a wide range of studies, and rose to be a provincial and later the vicar of the Cisapline province. But that was not enough and in 1534 he joined the stricter Capuchin Franciscans, rising to serve as their vicar-general. He ranged beyond the convent walls and was a very popular preacher. By 1542 he had come to the attention of the authorities in Rome who, having read his writings, exposed some of his beliefs as Protestant, especially with regards to the doctrine of justification. He fled to Geneva, then later to London, Zurich, Cracow, and eventually Slavkov, where he died of the plague. While in London (1547?53) he wrote the Labyrinth, originally in Italian but translated for publication into Latin, here, assailing the Calvinistic doctrine of predestination. The other work of his published in this volume, on the Last Supper of Christ, was also written in Italian: It also makes its first appearance in print here, also in Latin translation. In this copy the Labyrinth is misbound first; it is dedicated to Queen Elizabeth. The date of the printing of this volume remains uncertain with some assigning it to 1561 and others to 1563.
