Bookplate of Otto Orren Fisher and ink inscription dated 1724. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477.

ANGUILLARA, LUIGI - - [THE GREATEST BOOK OF BOTANY EVER WRITTEN IN ITALY]
Venegia (Venice), Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1561. Small 8vo. Contemp. full vellum. Covers a bit soiled and with remains of ink-writing on both covers. Small nicks to edges. Endpapers renewed with old paper. Old written owners name on titlepage: Antonio Cappini. 304,(32) pp. A few stains and a few scattered brownspots. Faint browning to lower margin of some leaves. Fine woodcut initials throughout.. The extremely scarce first edition of this botanical classic, which still remains an important source for historical nomenclature and floristic studies. "Little is known of Anguillara's early life. In 1539 he became associated with Luca Ghini at the latter's private botanical garden, first in Bologna, then in Pisa in 1544. Two years later, Anguillara became the first director of the botanical garden in Padua, the oldest of its kind in Europe. He remained at Padua, supervising a garden that received favorable notice from many distinguished visitors, until 1561... He became herbalist to the Duke of Ferrara and continued his botanical travels." (D.S.B. I:167). The present work is Anguillara's only known book. The work was written over a long period (1549-60) and is divided into fourteen 'pareri' ("opinions"), each of which is dedicated to a contemporary Italian physician. "(t)he book is principally devoted to the identification of the plants known to Dioscorides and the other ancient writers on materia medica. Because of his travels in Greece, Italy, France, and Asia Minor and his great personal knowledge of plant life throughout the Meditarranean basin, Anguillare was among the best-equip … [Click Below for Full Description]

GASTALDI, Giacomo (c. 1500-1566).
[Venice: 1561]. Two sheets joined (18 4/8 x 29 inches to the neat line, full margins showing the plate mark), matted. A fine woodcut map of Egypt and the Middle East, depicting the Horn of Africa, the Arabian peninsula and southern Persia, extending eastward to Calcutta. AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE EXAMPLE OF A VERY RARE MAP: THE FIRST ACCURATELY DRAWN LARGE-SCALE MAP OF THE MIDDLE-EAST. Part two, of three maps of Asia by Gastaldi, published between 1559 and 1561. It covers the modern geographical areas of Egypt, Ethiopia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, part of Iraq and Iran, Pakistan and the west coast of India. The published travels of Marco Polo, that had appeared in Ramusio's "Navigationi et viaggi" heavily influence Gastaldi's geography of this map, which is considered to be far superior to all previous maps of Asia. Gastaldi was "Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic, then a powerhouse of commerce and trade. He sought the most up to date geographical information available, and became one of the greatest cartographers of the sixteenth century" (Burden). Giacomo Gastaldi was, and styled himself, 'Piemontese', and this epithet appears often after his name. Born at the end of the fifteenth or the beginning of the sixteenth century, he does not appear in any records until 1539, when the Venetian Senate granted him a privilege for the printing of a perpetual calendar. His first dated map appeared in 1544, by which time he had become an accomplished engineer and cartographer. Karrow has argued that Gastaldi's early contact with the celebrated ge … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basil Besler (1561-1629)Illustrated plate from Hortus EystettensisEichstatt: 1613Hand-colored copperplate engraving (later color)35? x 30 1/4? framed in museum quality gold leaf frame using archival materials and UV plexiglassVery good conditionBasil Besler?s great botanical work is a landmark of botanical documentation and pre-Linnaean classification, as well as one of the most splendidly stylized and aesthetically powerful botanical works ever produced. Besler was an apothecary and botanist who managed the gardens of Bishop Johann Conrad in Eichstatt, Germany. The Bishop?s remarkable garden was one of the most extensive in Europe, containing a huge variety of European shrubs and flowering plants, as well as exotic specimens from Asia and the Americas. Besler used this encyclopedic resource as the basis for the Hortus Eystettensis, in which he studied and depicted over a thousand flowers, representing 667 species in all. With the Bishop?s patronage, he worked both as artist and publisher, directing a team of ten artists and engravers in creating 367 plates over 16 years. Published one hundred and fifty years before Linnaeus created his thorough system of classification, Besler?s great florilegium represents an impressive early attempt to classify plants for the benefit of botanists, doctors and apothecaries. Each plant is given a distinct and often descriptive Latin title, and related species are grouped together on the same plate, or over a series of plates. Almost all specimens are shown complete and accurately colored, including delineations of their root systems. While … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ruscelli, Girolamo
Venice, Ruscelli, Girolamo, 1561. North Atlantic. "Septentrionalium Partium Nova Tabula". Orig. copper-engraving from G. Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geography. Published in Venice, 1561. This map is a reduced version of the Nicolo Zeno map of 1558. With title above the map. 20,5:26 cm.. Burden: The Mapping of North America, nr. 29 - A map of the northern part of the Atlantic ocean with Greenlad and Iceland. Girolamo Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia included newly engraved copperplates by Giulio and Livio Sanuti. The curious fact is that this map is one of two that were engraved on the same plate, printed and than 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.

Several instances of neat, early ink notes and emendations. A very good copy. 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 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.

Basil Besler (1561-1629)
Basil Besler (1561-1629)Illustrated plate from Hortus EystettensisEichstatt: 1613Hand-colored copperplate engraving (later color)Sheet size: 22 1/2" x 17 1/2"Basil Besler’s great botanical work is a landmark of botanical documentation and pre-Linnaean classification, as well as one of the most splendidly stylized and aesthetically powerful botanical works ever produced. Besler was an apothecary and botanist who managed the gardens of Bishop Johann Conrad in Eichstatt, Germany. The Bishop’s remarkable garden was one of the most extensive in Europe, containing a huge variety of European shrubs and flowering plants, as well as exotic specimens from Asia and the Americas. Besler used this encyclopedic resource as the basis for the Hortus Eystettensis, in which he studied and depicted over a thousand flowers, representing 667 species in all. With the Bishop’s patronage, he worked both as artist and publisher, directing a team of ten artists and engravers in creating 367 plates over 16 years.    Published one hundred and fifty years before Linnaeus created his thorough system of classification, Besler’s great florilegium represents an impressive early attempt to classify plants for the benefit of botanists, doctors and apothecaries. Each plant is given a distinct and often descriptive Latin title, and related species are grouped together on the same plate, or over a series of plates. Almost all specimens are shown complete and accurately colored, including delineations of their root systems. While Besler’s work is obviously motivated by a scientific … [Click Below for Full Description]

Funk, Franz Ernst Theodor:
. . Einzige Ausgabe. - Funk beruft sich auf das bereits 1561 erschienene Werk "Nouvelle inventions pour bien bastir et a petits frais" des französischen Baumeisters Philibert de L'Orme, in dem dieser die Verwendung von Holzbohlen vorgeschlagen hatte, die aus mehreren Lagen dünner, kurzer Brettstücke zusammengesetzt werden. Er rühmt sich, dieses Verfahren als erster auf den Brückenbau angewendet zu haben u. hält es gegenüber anderen Verfahren für vorteilhafter, wenn sich die Bogenweite nicht über 120 rheinländ. Fuß (ca. 38 m) erstreckt. Nach diesem Verfahren hatte er 1799 bis 1800 in Minden die sog. "Bunte Brücke" über die Weser erbaut (Weite der sechs Öffnungen je 45 Fuß). Eine weitere Brücke erbaute er kurz danach in Rehme (heute Bad Oeynhausen) über die Werra. Vor allem die "Bunte Brücke" wird ausführlich erläutert u. mit anderen Holzbrücken (u.a. von Wiebeking) verglichen. - Die Kupfer mit Ansichten, Aufrissen u. Detaildarstellungen, darunter eine Brücke mit 120 Fuß Spannweite. - Funk (1768-1820) war seinerzeit Strombaumeister der Weser-Division im Königreich Westphalen. Später avancierte er zum Oberbaurat in Berlin. - Stempel u. Bibl.-Vermerke der Fürstl. Bibliothek Fürstenberg, Donaueschingen. Engelmann S. 107. - Malberg S. 131. - Bonacker 78. - Poggendorff I, Sp. 818 (nicht dieses Werk). - Umschlag etwas fleckig u. verblaßt, Rücken etwas eingerissen. Unbeschnittenes, nur gering stockfleckiges Exemplar.
