- Antique print, titled: 'Pondere Quod victus sudaret Olympifer Atlas.' - This print shows Hercules relieving Atlas taking temporarely the world on his shoulders. Engraving on hand laid paper. Description: Plate 10 of 10 from 'The Labours of Hercules', published in 1563 by Hieronymus Cock. After a lost series of 12 paintings by F. Floris painted 1554-55 for the villa of the merchant and art collector Nicolaas Jongelinck in Markgravelei near Antwerp. State: 2nd state w/ numbering. Ref: NH 181 (From series NH 172-181).Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Cornelis Cort' after 'Frans Floris'. Cornelis Cort (1533-1578) was a renowned Flemish draughtsman and engraver. He was known as Cornelio Flammingo while he was in Italy (from 1565 until his death). He started an art academy in Rome, where Carracci was among his students. Frans Floris (1519/20-1570) was the foremost Antwerp artist of the mid-sixteenth century. Known as the Flemish Raphael, he was admired for his Italianate style, treatment of the body and approach to composition. As a result of his close relationship with the publisher Hieronymus Cock, who established the Quatre Vents press in the same years that Floris started to receive important commissions, the artist was able to harness the print medium as no Antwerp artist before him had done. Nearly all Netherlandish printmakers active between 1550 and 1570 worked from Floris’s designs. Condition: Very good, given age. Some light remains of attachment on rear. Margins cropped close to plate edges. Slight paper loss in corners. Paper edges a bit chipped. General age-rela … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spine with five raised bands, compartments with gilt vignettes; boards with elaborate tooling, gilt-stamping, and brass clasps.l An important early treatise on the art of dialectics, written by the Polish theologist, filologist, humanist, and rector of the Academy of Krakow, Jakob, or Jacub, Górski (Jacobus Gorscius, ca. 1525-1595). "Górski was an early Polish representative of Stoicism. He wrote a famous Dialectic (1563) and many works in grammar, rhetoric, theology and sociology. A professor at Kraków University, he was an erudite man whose Dialectic gives evidence of extensive acquaintance with new currents and authors, but he was more erudite than independent as a thinker. He tended to eclecticism and sought to reconcile the Stoics with Aristotle" (Wikipedia). Rare. OCLC records less than ten copies outside Poland, and none outside northern Europe. We have found no auction records during the last 50 years. Binding rubbed, corners more so. Clasps wanting. A tear in the folded chart, otherwise internally a very good, clean copy.

Commendone, Giovanni Francesco, cardinal (1524-1584).
Oblong 12mo. 1 p. A catchphrase of radical Lutheranism, apparently quoted ironically by the Cardinal to expose the extremism of his opponents: "Incipit hareticus fieri, qui scripta Lutheri / Carpit, et infernum, ni resipiscat, adit" ("He who attacks Luther oversteps the threshold of heresy, and, unless he repents, goes to hell"). The Strasbourg Protestant theologian and Hebrew scholar Tobias Speccer (1563-1622) quoted the lines (in a slightly more extensive version, with variation) in his essay, "De vera Iesu Christi Ecclesia & Pontificia Romana opposita", published in 1617 in an academic volume celebrating the centenary of the Ninety-Five Theses, the primary catalyst for the Protestant Reformation. In this context, they give evidence of the extreme reverence Luther enjoyed among his disciples more than seven decades after his death. - Cardinal Commendone had performed various papal missions to the courts of Protestant rulers. The numerous letters which he wrote during his 1560/61 mission to Germany to invite the Catholic and Protestant Estates to the re-opened Council of Trent present a picture of the ecclesiastical conditions in the country during those times. - Some worming. 18th-century authentification note ("Autographum Cardinalis Commendone") in red ink at the foot of the clipped page.

He is best known for his early maps of the New World and Europe, for re-establishing the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator, and for his portraits of Francis Drake. He helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography in Europe in the 17th century. He was born in Wakken and grew up in Ghent. In his early years he established himself as an engraver, instrument maker and globe maker. In 1584 he moved to London to escape religious difficulties in Flanders.While in England, Hondius was instrumental in publicizing the work of Francis Drake, who had made a circumnavigation of the world in the late 1570s. In particular, in 1589 Hondius produced a now famous map of the bay of New Albion, where Drake briefly established a settlement on the west coast of North America. Hondius' map was based on journal and eyewitness accounts of the trip and has long fueled speculation about the precise location of Drake's landing, which has not yet been firmly established by historians.

REISSNER, Adam.
Frankfurt Georg Raben Sigismund Feyerabend and heirs of Weigand Han, 1563. Folio (31.5 x 21.3 cm). [12]pp., including title page with woodcut device, 635, [33], double-page woodcut map, 42 woodcut illustrations in text. Contemporary blind-stamped calf, morocco lettering piece. Fine example, in attractive contemporary binding, of first edition in Latin of this important illustrated history of Jerusalem, before its destruction by the Romans. Adam Reissner, a German mystic and poet, was the pupil of Johann Reuchlin, a German humanist and prominent scholar of Greek and Hebrew. Reissner taught theology for many years and wrote historical and theological works, including an 'anti-papal history.' He later made a name for himself as a writer of hymns. In this book, considered one of Reissner's most important works, he describes Jerusalem in detail, with all its holy landmarks. Reissner paints a picture of'Heavenly Jerusalem,' in stark contrast to what he sees as the 'Satanic Babylon' of corrupt papacy. For Reissner, a supporter of the Protestant reformer Caspar Schwenckfeld, Jerusalem represents a community of true believers, in constant battle with the Antichrist of Rome. With constant comparisons of historical events to selected Bible passages, Reissner eventually comes to the conclusion that judgment day has arrived. The lovely woodcut illustrations by Virgil Solis were taken (or possibly copied) from the Luther Bible, published in 1560 by the Frankfurt publisher Sigmund Feyerabend. This edition is a translation of the first volume of the German edition, published the same year … [Click Below for Full Description]
