These gardens had been started in 1596 and designed by Besler's colleague, Joachim Camerarius the Younger (1534?1598), a physician and botanist. Upon Camerarius death in 1598, Besler had the remainder of Camerarius plants moved to Eichstätt and carried on the work of planting and supervision.

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.

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). OCLC lists copies in US at Chicago, Harvard, Indiana and West Virginia.

Early 19th century half calf. First German edition of the finest early printed book on tournaments.

According to Graesse (II, 629), the Latin edition of the same year has different illustrations, which he describes as "moins bonnes", and the same is true for Feyerabend's Frankfurt edition appended to Rüxner's "Thurnier Buch" (1566).

FALLOPPIO, Gabrielle.
Marco Antonio Ulmo and Gratioso Perchachino, Venice. 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).

REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes [Georg von PEUERBACH, Daniel SANTBECH
Heinrich Petri & Peter Perna, Basel, 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]

Gastaldi, Giacomo.
1561. Engraved map, printed from two copper plates (750 x 483 mm). Framed (96: 70 cm). "The first modern map of the Arabian peninsula" (Al-Ankary), here in the extremely rare second state as produced by Paolo Graziani. Still the most sought-after map of the region Gastaldi's two page wall-map served as a model for all further mapping of the peninsula until the 19th century. Gastaldi is regarded as "the most important 16th century Italian cartographer. His maps are very rare, as they were issued separately to order and were not part of an atlas" (Al-Qasimi, 1st ed., p. 23). Gastaldi used various sources including Portolan charts of the region drawn by the 16th-century Portuguese explorers. Many details, such as the coastline of the Arabian Gulf, certain coastal towns, or the peninsula of Qatar, are mapped and named for the first time. It is the most valuable of the early maps of the region. "Although the shape of the peninsula is distorted by modern standards, the Qatar peninsula and Bahrain are both shown - details that are missing on some maps produced up to almost 300 years later" (Stuart McMinn Catalogue). - The present example is a rare variant edition, bearing the imprint of Pietro de Nobilis, a successor of Lafreri in Rome after 1580. Also, above the scale of miles is a further imprint reading: "In Roma appresso Paulo de Graciam." Tooley located only a single example of this state in the Beans collection (now sold).

Pliny the Elder, Plinius Secundus
Symphorien Barbier for heirs of Jacobus Giunta, Lyon France, 1561. Beautiful, and complete Naturalis Historia (Natural History) of Pliny the Elder in 37 books (in four volumes); the binding style exudes antiquity, with titling in an old hand on the top-edge and spines. About the Work - Pliny the Elder (born Gaius Plinius Secundus, AD 23–79) was a Roman author, naturalist and natural philosopher, a naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and friend of emperor Vespasian. Spending most of his spare time studying, writing, and investigating natural and geographic phenomena in the field, Pliny wrote the encyclopedic Naturalis Historia (Natural History), which became an editorial model for encyclopedias. His nephew, Pliny the Younger, wrote of him in a letter to the historian Tacitus: "For my part I deem those blessed to whom, by favour of the gods, it has been granted either to do what is worth writing of, or to write what is worth reading; above measure blessed those on whom both gifts have been conferred. In the latter number will be my uncle, by virtue of his own and of your compositions." Pliny the Elder died in AD 79, while attempting the rescue, by ship, of a friend and his family, in Stabiae, from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which already had destroyed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The wind caused by the sixth and largest pyroclastic surge of the volcano’s eruption did not allow his ship to leave port, and Pliny probably died during that event.

Gastaldi, Giacomo.
1561. Together 3 maps, each on two sheets joined (447 x 744 mm; 480 x 752 mm; 480 x 732 mm). Stored in custom-made half morocco case with gilt title to spine. Gastaldi's mapping of Asia, published in three parts, is considered one of the most influential cartographical ventures in the 16th century. All three maps would go on to be prototypes for the depiction of the region well into the early 18th century. As official cosmographer to the Venetian Republic, Gastaldi had access to the most up-to-date geographical information in compiling his maps, which represent the most accurate and detailed renderings of their time. Having been established in the city for two decades, by the late 1550s Gastaldi was devising the large-scale monumental masterpieces that would confirm his legacy. The travels of Marco Polo, published in Ramusio's "Navigationi et viaggi", heavily influenced Gastaldi's geography of these three maps, which are considered to be far superior to all previous maps of Asia. The "Prima Parte" covers Asia Minor and the Levant coast to Afghanistan, including Persia, northern Arabia, and the Caspian Sea; the second map centers on the Arabian Peninsula extending from the Horn of Africa to Calcutta; while the third and final part provides a magnificent perspective of India, the Malay Peninsula, and southern China. - The first part, in the second state, is printed by Lafreri in Rome, the other two are published in Venice by Gastaldi himself.

Contemporary vellum (some old repair). A fine copy of the second edition (first 1556) of the 'first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times' (Printing and the mind of man)./"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 sixteenth-century mining technologies, such as the use of water-power for crushing ore and the improvements in suction 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. 'De Re Metallica' remained the standard textbook on mining and metallurgy for over two hundred years". (Norman catalogue).//The fine woodcut illustrations, illustrating all aspects of mining, metallurgy, and mining tools and machines, are attributed variously to Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch and Blasius Weffring. /Agricola was town doctor of Joachimsthal, 'a silver-mining community on the east side of the Erzegebirge mountains in what i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Woodcut printer's device of "Prudence" with the motto Prudentia negotium non fortuna ducat on each title and full-page on verso of last leaf of each part, woodcuts historiated initials, text woodcut illustration of an alchemical instrument (sigilla hermetis), contemporary manuscripts notes. Contemporary vellum, a bit worn, with faint notes on covers; some browning and minor staining. Manuscript note on second title that suggests that Rossello is an alias for D. Panizza of Venice (?). Also of interest is the different spelling of Venice, "Venegia" on the first title and "Venetia" on the second. First edition, extremely rare, of this important and enigmatic treatise of alchemical, pharmaceutical and herbal formulas containing almost every remedy and new mode of therapy for illness as well as the ability to remain in good health. Among the topics described are recipes for plague amulets to aphrodisiacs and formulas from lip balm to paint pigments and cleaning teeth. In addition to the many other beauty treatments, the second book illustrates how to prepare "special waters" used to heal a variety of diseases. Noteworthy is the author's description of his preparation of camphor, quicksilver and sulfur to make a universal medicine. Of special interest (especially given the question of the gender of the writer) is the formula for a mixture of quail testicles, large winged ants, musk, and amber to treat erectile dysfunction.

Ochino, Bernardino.
[apud Petrum Pernam. 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. Binding: 18th-century brown morocco, spine => gilt over-the-top extra and with the gilt supra- libros of Count Hoym. All edges gilt over old marbled edges. With a silk place marker.

Chaucer, Geoffrey.

This is the fourth edition of the Workes, following the first of 1532, which included the first printed appearances of a number of Chaucer's verse and prose pieces, among them the Book of the Duchess and the Legend of Good Women. Editor William Thynne examined a number of manuscripts and printed versions in order to provide what he considered the most accurate renditions possible of the texts; his work helped to shape and direct the Renaissance perspective on Chaucer and his canon. That the text is printed in double columns of => black-letter ? this being late for that, except in realms of serious law or theology ? will have lent it an air of "auctorite" and, perhaps, of pleasantly suitable archaism for its original readers; the printer has also supplied => decorative woodcut initials in a variety of sizes, some historiated, some signed "I.R.," and one with a backwards "N," while the "Knight's Tale" opens with => a large woodcut of the armored knight, mounted and with jousting lance in hand.
