        Sylvanus

      1565 - Bulino, 1565, monogrammato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Frans Floris. Esemplare nel raro primo stato di tre con l’indirizzo dell’editore Hieronimus Cock. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva recante filigrana "corona con doppia C" (Briquet 9223, Strauss 156), con inusuali ampi margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Frans Floris, conosciuto anche con il nome di "Raffaello fiammingo", viene molto influenzato in realtà da Michelangelo, che conosce durante il suo lungo soggiorno italiano. Pittore e incisore, coniuga l’arte del Rinascimento italiano con l’estro della scuola fiamminga, creando una scuola che verrà seguita sino all’avvento di Rubens. L’incisione fa parte di una serie di sei Divinità rurali, realizzate da Cornelis Cort. Molto rara. Engraving, 1565, monogrammed in the plate in the bottom center. After Frans Floris. Example in the rare first state of three with the address of the publisher Hieronymus Cock. Magnificent proof, printyed on contemporary laid paper with watermarked "crown with double C" (Briquet 9223, Strauss 156), with unusual wide margins, in excellent condition. Frans Floris, also known by the name "The Flemish Raphael", is in reality very much influenced by Michelangelo, who knows during his long stay Italian. Painter and engraver, combines the art of the Italian Renaissance with the inspiration of the Flemish school, creating a school that will be followed until the advent of Rubens. The work is part of a series of six rural deity, made by Cornelis Cort. Very rare. Hollstein 169 I/III; TIB 52, 169. Dimensioni 220 290mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Prague, 1565. - Folio (235 x 314 mm). German ms. on paper with calligraphic captions and several half-titles. 453 ff. Contemp. blindstamped pigskin on wooden boards. Wants ties. Exceptionally attractive and important manuscript from the Bohemian Royal offices; the principal document of the Bohemian national finances in the second year of the rule of Emperor Maximilian II. A beautiful and hitherto unknown document of Renaissance bookkeeping in its well-preserved original binding. - In the present manuscript, Johann Rabenhaupt, head of the Royal bursary and responsible for the accounting year 1565, has testified the correct statement of revenues and expenditures by his signature on every page. The volume begins with an alphabetical index, arranged in double pages and listing revenues (on left) and payments (on right) by name. Among the payers and recipients are several important names, most of them members of German-Bohemian, Czech and Polish noble families, the Tyrolean glass manufacturer Sebastian Hochstetter von Scheibenegg (d. 1573), but also the great physician Pietro Andrea Mattioli (1500-77): "Petter Andreas Mathiolo [.] Ertzherzog Ferdinanden zu Osterreich LeipPhisicus, hatt zu farlicher Provision Ainhundert gulden Reinisch, die khun zwayundvierzig schockh Ainundfunffzig groschen drey pfennig behamisch; dieselb hab ich Ime für dreyzehen Monat Anzuraitten [.]" (f. 263v). Mattioli, known especially for his Dioscorides commentary, moved to Prague in 1552 as personal physician to Archduke Ferdinand, where he was later to be made head medical advisor to Emperor Maximilian II (cf. Hirsch IV, 168). The volume not only documents salaries, duties, and court expenditures, but also the receipt of border taxes, Turk taxes, tithes, loans, deposits, realties, costs of funerals and the Prague castle vineyard, etc. - Johannes Rabenhaupt von Sucha, the man responsible for this splendid Renaissance account book, was a descendant of an old Bohemian noble family which is also documented in the Palatinate, in Franconia, and in Upper Austria. Although there have been attempts at biographical studies of the Royal bursar Rabenhaupt (without knowledge of the present manuscript), historical science has been forced to admit its temporary failure in this respect (see literature below). - Slight worming to several ff. Some offsetting of ink, but generally very well legible and hardly browned. The finely blindstamped binding shows a wide border of arched friezes; the central compartment bears the ms. title. On the back cover, the friezes frame a roll representing Virtues; central compartment decorated with two parallel arched friezes. Edges, spine-ends, and endpapers with traces of professional restoration; otherwise perfect. Beket Bukovinská, "Wer war Johann Rabenhaupt? Unbeachtete Aspekte in den Beziehungen zwischen Prag und Südwest-Deutschland", in: Rudolf II, Prague and the World. Papers from the International Conference. Prague, 2-4 September, 1997.

        Seconda Tavola (showing the Indian subcontinent).

      A rare separately published Italian-school map of India, parts of Arabia, Sumatra, the Maldives, Pakistan and the Indian Ocean. Bertelli's map follows closely the first edition of Ramusio's woodblock map, published in his Delle Navigatione e Viaggi, and showing the region in an inverted orientation. Ramusio's woodblock was destroyed in a fire in 1557, so presumably only a few copies made it. The engraving itself is striking, with sea monster and ships sailing along the coastline. The topographic names in the Gulf region derive from the ones used by Portuguese explorers. The map is based on the latest Portuguese sources, whereupon the coastlines the peninsula of the Indian Subcontinent and Sri Lanka take on a modern form. However, the mouth of the Indus is too pronounced, and is located far to the east, on the wrong side of Gujarat. The map gives primacy to various details critical to the trade and commerce of the Portuguese Empire that dominated the Indian Ocean in the sixteenth-century. One will notice the key ports of Goa, Calicut, and Diu (in India), and Hormuz (in Persia), which were bulwarks of Lusitanian commerce. Rare, we can find two appearances of the map at auction in the past 30 years. Gole, Early printed maps of India 2. Al Qassimi TE 13 (cf. later Ramusio ed.).

Original full green vellum; heavily rubbed and darkened. With four manuscript pages at rear entitled, "Historia Lúdo?ico"[?]; marginalia (minor) p. 129. Very good. Rare. RECORDED THE EXTRAORDINARY – ONE OF THE WORLD’S EARLY ENCYCLOPEDIAS: Latin translation by Camillus Gilinus of the Italian original, which was never printed. Printed by Jean Beller (1526-1595). The work is a record of extraordinary events, or "memorable incidents", in history from the lives of famous men: Johannes Gutenberg and Christopher Columbus are both mentioned on page 634. "The anecdotal material is organized under eighty-nine headings, such as: On Majesty, On Fortitude, On Poverty, On Piety against Parents, On Military Stratagems, On Unusual Kinds of Death, etc. The work is an imposing encyclopedia of historical elementary materials of the kind that we find in the Vita Tamerlani of Enea Silvio and his successors." – Eric Voegelin, ?David L. Morse, ?William M. Thompson, History of Political Ideas: Renaissance and Reformation, 1998, p. 54. ". Fregoso’s text is the likely source for the humanist Girolamo Morlini’s story of a young girl’s transformation in a Neapolitan convent . This particular episode of spontaneous female-to-male sex change became an exemplary case and was routinely cited in both scientific and literary texts which discussed this marvel of physiology." – Suzanne Magnanini, Fairy-tale Science: Monstrous Generation in the Tales of Straparola . 2008. p. 58. Battista Fregoso (1450-1504) was the 40th Doge of the Republic of Genoa. He was educated by Raimondo Soncino, studying the humanities. He also studied the use of weapons. He was forced to flee to France, devoting himself to the study of writing and letters. When he did return home he was unable to regain his title. He was then banned again never to return.

        Ercole e il Centauro

      1565 - Bulino, 1565, privo di data, firmato in lastra in basso a destra. Da un dipinto di Frans Floris. Della serie "Le dodici fatiche di Ercole". Esemplare nel IV stato di IV, descritto da Sellink - Leeflang Eccellente prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al margine, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa stampa costituisce la tavola n. 1 di una serie di 10 fogli raffiguranti le fatiche di Ercole, incisa da Cornelis Cort nel 1563 e riproducente altrettanti dipinti di Frans Floris realizzati fra il 1554 ed il 1555 per Nicolaas Jongelinck, mercante e collezionista d'arte di Anversa. Uno solo di questi 10 dipinti è tuttora esistente e si trova in collezione privata; i disegni preparatori per l'esecuzione delle incisioni furono probabilmente eseguiti da Simon Jansz. Kies, allievo di Franz Floris. La serie di incisioni conobbe 4 edizioni, tutte pubblicate ad Anversa: la prima nel 1565, opera di Hieronymus Cock, che pubblica anche la seconda e la terza; mentre la quarta edizine è opera di Justus Goltzius, che corregge l’indirizzo del Cock con il suo. Il soggetto è piuttosto singolare poichè secondo Ovidio non è Ercole bensì Teseo a cacciare i centauri che, invitati al banchetto di nozze di Piritto e Ippodamia, iniziano a comportarsi selvaggiamente finchè uno di essi, Eurito, assale la sposa scatenando una lotta furibonda. Tale episodio non è neppure citato fra quelli leggendari delle fatiche di Ercole. Al verso, timbro di collezione Leroy Kirwin 'Roy' Burket (Lugt 3389) ed un secondo non identificabile. Engraving, 1565, signed on plate with the names of the engraver and the editor. After a painting by Franz Floris. From the series The Twelve Labours of Hercules. Example in the IV state of IV, according to Sellink – Leeflang. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed on the marginal line, in good condition. The Twelve Labours of Hercules in a suite of 10 engravings, edited for the first time in 1565 by the Antwerp publisher Hieronymus Cock who also published the second and the third edition. The last edition was edited by Justus Goltzius. The engravings reproduce the cycle of paintings made around 1555 by Frans Floris for the residence of the Antwerp merchant Nicolaas Jonghelinck; only one of these paintings has survived. The drawings Cort used as models were probably done by Simon Jansz. Kies, one of Floris’ pupils. The limited amount of space available in the room where the paintings were displayed obliged Floris to compress the twelve works into ten painted compositions, two thematically related episodes being combined on two of the paintings. Cornelis Cort also adopted this procedure but extended Frans Floris’ compositions to include a landscape backdrop. Cort’s engravings stand out for their concentrated, powerful technique and compositional coherence. The somewhat dry, unpolished linework gives the prints great expressive power which dramatically brings out the dynamism and the raw violence of the individual episodes. Cort’s disciplined burin technique with its dense hatching patterns gives both man and beast an almost sculptural plasticity and a tremendous physical presence, while the striking chiaroscuro effectively intensifies the pathos of the individual scenes. The subject is rather strange because according to Ovid is not Hercules but Theseus to hunt the centaurs that were invited to the wedding feast of Piritto and Hippodamia, they begin to behave wildly until one of them, Eurytus, assails the bride unleashing a furious battle. This episode is not even mentioned among those legendary labors of Hercules. Ex collection Leroy Kirwin 'Roy' Burket (Lugt 3389). Sellink M./ Leeflang H., 2000, v. III p. 32 n. 173; The New Hollstein 172–181 Dimensioni 290 230mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Tocquay, over Doggey, fortezza inespugabile ne Confini d'Ongheria & Transilvania

      Venezia 1565 - Veduta di Tokaj, città storica ungherese, assediata dall'armata turca. Situata sulla confluenza dei fiumi Tibisco e Bodgrod, è stata una delle prime fortezze ungheresi caduta nelle mani de Turchi, capitanati da da Zapolya, nel 1564. Ma fu riconquistata dalle truppe imperiali sotto il comando di Lazzaro von Schwendi nel 1565. Il primo spettacolare successo del partito cristiano nella guerra contro l'Impero Ottomano è il tema della presente incisione, opera di Domenico Zenoi, edita da Camocio e poi anche da Donato Bertelli. E 'l'archetipo di un tipologia di veduta che sarà poi ridotta e stampata nelle raccolte di città edite a Venezia a partire dal 1568. Un magnifico esmeplare del primo stato di tre, avanti l'indirizzo del Camocio, con pieni margini, condizioni perfette. Molto rara. Bird's eye view of Tokay. On the confluence of the Tisza and Bodgrod rivers was one of the first Hungarian fortress captured by Zapolya in 1564. But it was recoverd by imperial troops under the command of Lazarus von Schwendi in 1565. The first spectacular success of the Christian party in tha war is the subject of th epresent engraving by Domenico Zenoi, published by Gamocio and Donato Bertelli as a separate. It is the archetype for a number of followers. A magnific example of the first state, before the Camocio address, with full margins, perfect conditions. Very rare.

        De Maiorica Insula

      Venezia 1565 - Carta geografica di Maiorca a firma Ferrando Bertelli. Al centro dell’isola MAIORICA. In alto a sinistra in una targa con bordi ornati DE MAIORICA INSULA. MAIORICA ex duabus prope hispaniam ad orie[n]tem belearibus, sive gimnesis insulis altera maior et occidentalior contra iben iluminis ostia, à re sic dicta eius motropolis ad orientem solem septentrionem versus eodem nunc nomine quo et insula prius ut fetur palma vocata optimo portu, academia universali doctrina q[uae] lulliana nobilis ad meridiem vero alteram habet civitatem bollentiam sive pollentiam nomine Iuxta littora plana est et saecunda in interioribus vero contra, montibus referta et infaecunda. Ferando bertelli. Exc. Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro con il nome dei venti TRAMONTANA, MEZZODI, PONENTE, LEVANTE il nord è a sinistra. Carta priva di scala grafica e graduazione ai margini. La carta di Maiorca a firma Ferrando Bertelli, sebbene non datata, sembra essere la più antica di questa tipologia di mappe, ed appartiene ad un ampio progetto editoriale della tipografia Bertelli che realizza una serie cartografica dedicata alle isole del Mediterraneo, a partire da 1560 circa. Le carte sono, occasionalmente, poi inserite nella pubblicazione Civitatum aliquot insignorum del 1568 e più spesso nella successiva edizione della stessa opera datata 1574 e firmata da Donato Bertelli. Dal punto di vista cartografico le mappe non hanno nulla di attinente alla realtà delle isole; la carta di Maiorca è completamente rovesciata, probabilmente poiché incisa nello stesso verso del disegno dal quale è stata ripresa. Per questo la posizione di Palma, Capo Formentor e dell’isola di Dragonera risultano speculari. L’autore delle fonti cartografiche rimane sconosciuto. Delle carte delle isole Baleari del Bertelli esistono delle copie molto simili, e spesso si trovano negli atlanti lafreriani stampate sullo stesso foglio. Pertanto i repertori le hanno spesso confuse. La carta è altresì inserita nell’esemplare del Civitatutm Aliquot insignorum et locor[um] di Ferrando Bertelli conservato all’Università di Helsinki. Stati & edizioni: 1°: come descritto, a firma Ferando bertelli Exc. 2°: abrasa la firma del Bertelli.

        Ultimo disegno delli forti di Malta venuto nuovamente.

      Roma 1565 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1565, firmata e datata in lastra nel cartiglio. Esemplare nel rarissimo primo stato di quattro. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "aquila nel cerchio con corona" (Woodward 55), rifilata al rame e con margini coevi aggiunti, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Pianta dell’assedio del 1565 a La Valletta, realizzata nell’agosto del 1565, come dichiarato nel cartiglio Ant. Lafrej Romae formis 1565 de mese Augusti. Della lastra esiste un secondo stato sempre edito nell’agosto del 1565, un aggiornamento costituito da nuove informazioni giunte al Lafrery che parlava della costruzione di un ponte di barche all’interno di Dockyard Creek. Il primo stato della lastra quindi ebbe una bassissima tiratura ed è pertanto rarissimo, ne sono conosciuti solo 10 esemplari nelle raccolte lafreriane. La mappa, forse per la sua incredibile bellezza, ebbe due tirature successive curate a Giovanni Orlandi diversi decenni dopo. Meraviglioso esemplare di questo importante documento. Le vicende dell’isola di Malta, della costruzione della città fortificata, la guerra contro i Turchi e il celebre assedio dell’isola costituiscono motivo di grande interesse nella civiltà rinascimentale europea, tanto da produrre una relativa cospicua letteratura e soprattutto una notevole produzione iconografica del susseguirsi degli eventi. Il Grande Assedio di Malta del 1565 rappresenta una pietra miliare nella storia delle isole maltesi, e anche un punto di svolta nella guerra tra i cristiani contro le forze dell'Impero Ottomano, conclusa con la celebre battaglia di Lepanto nel 1571. Nonostante queste due sconfitte catastrofiche, i Turchi continuarono a fare incursioni lungo le coste del Mediterraneo occidentale per il resto del secolo, dopo aver recuperato Cipro dai Veneziani e Tunisi dagli Spagnoli, ma il declino del loro impero era ormai annunciato. L'Assedio di Malta, che durò da maggio a settembre 1565, fu seguito con trepidazione non solo a Napoli, Roma e Venezia, ma anche a Vienna, Londra e Madrid, a Parigi, Anversa e Bruxelles. La notizia della lentezza degli assedianti e della disperata difesa dell'isola raggiunse la Sicilia attraverso le lettere scritte dal Gran Maestro Jean de La Valette- Parisot, bozzetti di battaglie spediti dai Cavalieri dell'Ordine di San Giovanni e Relationi, scritte da soldati o marinai. Scene e mappe dell’assedio furono realizzate in Francia, Germania, Spagna e Italia per raccontare in immagini le diverse fasi della strenua resistenza di Malta contro le forze armate della Mezzaluna. In Italia i principali centri di produzione furono Roma e Venezia. Dato la finalità essenzialmente informativa di questi lavori, gli acquirenti non sempre si curavano della loro conservazione, ragione per cui sono oggi di incredibile rarità. Albert Ganado, il maggiore esperto di cartografia maltese, elenca oltre 60 lavori cartografici sull’isola, nelle loro varie diverse ristampe, concentrati nel brevissimo spazio di soli 10 anni. Etching and engraving, 1565, signed and dated in the plate. Example of the very rare first state of four. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "eagle in circle with crown" (Woodward 55), trimmed to the copperplate and with margins added, in a perfect state of preservation. Plant of the siege of 1565 in Valletta, carried out in August of 1565, as stated in the title "Ant. Lafrej Romae formis 1565 de mese Augusti". Of the plate there is always a second state published in August of 1565, an update consists of new information reached the Lafrery who spoke of building a bridge of boats in Dockyard Creek. The first state of the plate then had a very low circulation and is therefore very rare, there are only 10 known specimens in the Lafrery collections. The map, perhaps because of its incredible beauty, had two later issues by Giovanni Orlandi several decades later. Wonderful example of this important document.

        Il Porto di Malta

      Venezia 1565 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1565, firmata e datata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con il ritratto di Giovanni da Valletta aggiunto in basso a destra; tuttavia il primo stato della lastra può essere considerato come una prova di stampa. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nicolò Nelli è autore di diverse mappe e piante di Malta e la Valletta. Secondo Albert Ganado, il maggiore studioso della cartografia di Malta, questa mappa non è originale di Nelli ma realizzata usando e alterando la lastra dell’opera di Giovanni Battista Pittoni del luglio del 1565. Sempre secondo Ganado questa mappa sarebbe stata realizzata nell’ottobre dello stesso anno. Nelli modifica la lastra incisa dal Pittoni per raffigurare la battaglia del 11 settembre 1565 dove le truppe cristiane guidate da Ascanio della Corgna e Don Alvaro de Sande sconfissero i Turchi che fuggirono dall’isola. Il ritratto raffigura padre Jean de La Vallette-Parisot , il quarantanovesimo Gran Maestro del Sovrano Ordine di San Giovanni di Gerusalemme, da cui il nome della capitale di Malta, nominato nel 1557 per difendere l'isola dagli ottomani. Questa è l’unica mappa degli assedi che include il ritratto di Giovanni da Valletta, ed è assolutamente rarissima. Le vicende dell’isola di Malta, della costruzione della città fortificata, la guerra contro i Turchi e il celebre assedio dell’isola costituiscono motivo di grande interesse nella civiltà rinascimentale europea, tanto da produrre una relativa cospicua letteratura e soprattutto una notevole produzione iconografica del susseguirsi degli eventi. Il Grande Assedio di Malta del 1565 rappresenta una pietra miliare nella storia delle isole maltesi, e anche un punto di svolta nella guerra tra i cristiani contro le forze dell'Impero Ottomano, conclusa con la celebre battaglia di Lepanto nel 1571.

Example in the second state of two, with a portrait of John Valletta added at the bottom right, but the first state of the plate can be considered as a test print. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark unreadable, with margins, in excellent condition. Nicolo Nelli is the author of several maps and plans of Malta and Valletta. According to Albert Ganado, the greatest scholar of cartography of Malta, this map is not original but Nelli achieved by using and altering the sheet of Giovanni Battista Pittoni in July of 1565.

        Holland - C.D.H. (Cornelis de Hooghe), 1565.

      FAMEUZE C.D.H. KAART VAN HOLLAND ?Hollandiae quae olim Catthorum sedes fuit nulli regioni fertilitate cedit divitiis abundat?? [Holland, vroeger woonstede van de Catten, doet voor geen enkele streek in vruchtbaarheid onder?]. Kopergravure vervaardigd door C.D.H./Cornelis de Hooghe in 1565. 1ste staat (van 2). In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 38 ? 52 cm.?In dese caerte is met arbeijt cost ende moeite beschreven nae der conste der geographie ?t graefschap van Holland, ende ?t landt van Utricht, met alle andere omleggende frontieren van andere landen daer aen stotende, Oeck alle nijeuwe dikaigijen aenwassen ende andere veranderinge, geheellijck gelijck hollant nu terrijt is, elcke plaetse op haere wijnde, ende gerechte distancie ofte wijde vanden anderen, alsomen bijden compasse ende mate der milen hier inne gestelt, bevinden sal?Over het beperkte oeuvre van De Hooghe (1540-1583) is maar weinig geschreven. Zijn bekendste werk, de kaart van Holland en Zeeland, wordt door een gebrekkige signatuur (linksonder) ?C.D.H.? lange tijd aan verscheidene andere kaartmakers toegeschreven .De compositie van de kaart is van een opvallende schoonheid. Het geheel is tot in de kleinste details uitermate verfijnd, zorgvuldig en kundig gegraveerd. Bovendien verleent de compositie de kaart een bijna feestelijk karakter.Linksonder zien we een rolwerkcartouche met een opdracht aan Willem van Oranje, waarboven diens wapen is afgebeeld. Linksboven het wapen van Philips II. Het feit dat beide wapens zijn afgebeeld is uniek, er zijn geen andere kaarten bekend waarbij dit het geval is. Bovendien wijst dit erop dat de kaart is gereedgekomen, juist voordat de troebelen die de Tachtigjarige Oorlog hebben ingeluid een aanvang namen (laat in 1565). Sindsdien kwamen beide heren immers lijnrecht tegenover elkaar te staan.Rechtsboven is het wapen van Holland afgebeeld, temidden van een met guirlandes versierde lauwerkrans. Midden onder, in streng symmetrische renaissancestijl de schitterende ovale rolwerkcartouche met prachtig uitgevoerde licht- en schaduweffecten. Rechtsonder de verfijnd aangebrachte schaalaanduiding, waarop precies in het midden ter bekroning een passer is aangebracht. Bij de ori?ntatie is dit driehoeksmotief zichtbaar in de kompasroos boven de titel in de Zuiderzee.Temidden van de buitenste en van de binnenste cirkel waaruit de roos is opgebouwd, is een achttal in driehoek gegraveerde pijlertjes zichtbaar: windwijzers voor de acht basale windrichtingen. Dit driehoeksmotief is een subtiel eerbetoon aan de uitvinder van de driehoeksmeting: Gemma Frisius, de leermeester van Gerard Mercator. De driehoeksmeting maakte de moderne cartografie mogelijk. Buiten de buitenste cirkel ontspringen er 32 zgn. loxodromen [krommen over het aardoppervlak] aan de kompasroos en worden 32 windrichtingen benoemd. Onder de kompasroos een kunstig gelobde banderol met de titel. Verder zijn gelijkmatig verdeeld vele schepen afgebeeld, zowel in de Noord- als in de Zuiderzee.Wellicht het meest opvallende detail is de omlijsting van de kaart: een uitermate fijnzinnig gegraveerde sierrand waarbinnen de windrichtingen zijn aangegeven. Alleen al het aanbrengen van deze Moorse rand, van oorsprong een Arabisch motief, heeft de graveur vele dagen ?arbeijt ende moeite? gekost. Het graveerwerk van deze rand doet sterk denken aan de Antwerpse kunstenaar en goudsmid Caspar van der Heiden.Voorts is opvallend dat de belettering op de kaart zeer zorgvuldig is gegraveerd: zo zijn alle toponiemen horizontaal aangebracht, hetgeen rust brengt in de voorstelling. De gebruikte letter is, naast de gegraveerde hoofdletters, een sierlijk toegepaste cursief, die door Gerard Mercator in de cartografie werd ge?ntroduceerd. Kortom, dit alles beschouwend is dit een Rembrandt onder de kaarten. Tenslotte, kenmerkend voor dit exemplaar is de zeer goede drukkwaliteit, elk detail is haarscherp gestoken en komt ook als zodanig naar voren.Cornelis de Hooghe was een buitenechtelijk zoon van keizer Karel V en een van de meest intrigerende cartografen van de Lage Landen. De smokkelvaart vanuit Veere, via Ipswich naar Spanje, had hem een vermogend man gemaakt. Maar zijn wens om deel te nemen aan het grote spel in het politieke wespennest van de nog jonge Opstand van de Lage Landen, werd hem noodlottig. De Hooghe had de opdracht voor een tegenopstand ten gunste van de Spaanse bezetter aanvaard. Bij het slagen van het complot kon hij hertog van Gelre worden.

        ENCHIRIDION LOCORUM COMMUNIUM, ADVERSUS LUTHERUM, & ALIOS HOSTES ECCLESIAE

      Apud Nicolas Chesneau, via Jacobaea, sub scuto Frobeniano, & quercu viride, Parisiis 1565 - 117 x 83 mm. (4 3/8 x 3 1/4"). 230, [2] leaves. LOVELY CONTEMPORARY LIMP VELLUM FANFARE BINDING IN THE STYLE OF NICOLAS EVE, covers laced through, each cover with two frames, one of palms, the other flowers, enclosing a field of 15 ovals, the central oval with monogram "M M" surrounded by four closed "S's," remains of ties; smooth spine tooled with a palm branch frame and six smaller ovals containing a flower, faint ink titling near head. In a sympathetic modern vellum box. Front free endpaper with bookplate of Michel Wittock; each page of text within ink-ruled frame. Hobson & Culot 69 (this copy). A few creases to covers, small chip to tail of spine, the gilt just a little muted or eroded, occasional light foxing, other trivial defects, but still A LOVELY COPY, the binding completely solid and very clean, and the text with only the most minor defects. Full of elegance, beauty, and charm, this is a fine early example of what has come to be called a fanfare binding, and this particular volume has occasioned the attention of more than one eminent commentator. The main features of the fanfare style, in Glaister's words, "are interlacing ribbons" that form "compartments of various shapes, with emphasis given to a central compartment. This interlacing ribbon is bounded by a double line on one side and a single one on the other." Ornaments made with small hand tools "fill all the compartments except the central one and almost completely cover the sides." The fanfare style is perhaps most frequently associated with the work of Nicolas and Clovis Eve, court binders and booksellers to successive kings of France from about 1578 to 1634. It is generally believed that the term "fanfare" actually came from an early 17th century music book (the title of which begins with the word "fanfare") acquired by the bibliophile Charles Nodier in 1829. The book was bound for Nodier by the famous Parisian binder Joseph Thouvenin, using an appropriately retrospective design in imitation of the Eves' style, which from that point forward came to be known as "fanfare." Of the present binding, Hobson & Culot point out similarities in design and tooling to those on a binding likened by Gumuchian to the work of Nicolas Eve (see XII, 119 and Plate XLIV). Hobson & Culot also note the binding's similarity to those done for Pietro Duodo, with its repeating ovals and myriad small tools, but conclude, in the end, that it comes from the same workshop as the binding shown in Gumuchian, and not the workshop employed by Duodo. If this binding were not done by Eve himself, it was likely produced by someone who trained with him or worked for him. The delicate tooling emerges here as even more lacy and perhaps more sophisticated and lovely against its ivory vellum background than it would against the darker morocco used in the Gumuchian binding and in others of the period. The contents here, the famous anti-Lutheran tract "Enchiridion" (first printed in Cologne in 1525), is probably the most important work by Johann Eck (1486-1543), a leading force of the Counter-Reformation and the person largely responsible for procuring Luther's excommunication via the bull "Exsurge Domine" in 1520. This work is primarily a collection of theological arguments directed against Luther and other "enemies of the Church," but Eck also includes proposals for reform within the Church, such as improving the training of priests and addressing the abuse of indulgences. Our volume was recently part of the wonderful library of Michel Wittock, whose collection of European bindings was one of the grandest ever assembled. Full of elegance, beauty, and charm, this is a fine early example of what has come to be called a fanfare binding, and this particular volume has occasioned the attention of more than one eminent commentator. The main features of the fanfare style, in Glaister's words, "are interlacing ribbons" that form "compartments of various shapes, with emphasis given to a central compartment.

      FAMEUZE C.D.H. KAART VAN HOLLAND ?Hollandiae quae olim Catthorum sedes fuit nulli regioni fertilitate cedit divitiis abundat?? [Holland, vroeger woonstede van de Catten, doet voor geen enkele streek in vruchtbaarheid onder?]. Kopergravure vervaardigd door C.D.H./Cornelis de Hooghe in 1565. 1ste staat (van 2). In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 38 ? 52 cm.?In dese caerte is met arbeijt cost ende moeite beschreven nae der conste der geographie ?t graefschap van Holland, ende ?t landt van Utricht, met alle andere omleggende frontieren van andere landen daer aen stotende, Oeck alle nijeuwe dikaigijen aenwassen ende andere veranderinge, geheellijck gelijck hollant nu terrijt is, elcke plaetse op haere wijnde, ende gerechte distancie ofte wijde vanden anderen, alsomen bijden compasse ende mate der milen hier inne gestelt, bevinden sal?Over het beperkte oeuvre van De Hooghe (1540-1583) is maar weinig geschreven. Zijn bekendste werk, de kaart van Holland en Zeeland, wordt door een gebrekkige signatuur (linksonder) ?C.D.H.? lange tijd aan verscheidene andere kaartmakers toegeschreven .De compositie van de kaart is van een opvallende schoonheid. Het geheel is tot in de kleinste details uitermate verfijnd, zorgvuldig en kundig gegraveerd. Bovendien verleent de compositie de kaart een bijna feestelijk karakter.Linksonder zien we een rolwerkcartouche met een opdracht aan Willem van Oranje, waarboven diens wapen is afgebeeld. Linksboven het wapen van Philips II. Het feit dat beide wapens zijn afgebeeld is uniek, er zijn geen andere kaarten bekend waarbij dit het geval is. Bovendien wijst dit erop dat de kaart is gereedgekomen, juist voordat de troebelen die de Tachtigjarige Oorlog hebben ingeluid een aanvang namen (laat in 1565). Sindsdien kwamen beide heren immers lijnrecht tegenover elkaar te staan.Rechtsboven is het wapen van Holland afgebeeld, temidden van een met guirlandes versierde lauwerkrans. Midden onder, in streng symmetrische renaissancestijl de schitterende ovale rolwerkcartouche met prachtig uitgevoerde licht- en schaduweffecten. Rechtsonder de verfijnd aangebrachte schaalaanduiding, waarop precies in het midden ter bekroning een passer is aangebracht. Bij de ori?ntatie is dit driehoeksmotief zichtbaar in de kompasroos boven de titel in de Zuiderzee.Temidden van de buitenste en van de binnenste cirkel waaruit de roos is opgebouwd, is een achttal in driehoek gegraveerde pijlertjes zichtbaar: windwijzers voor de acht basale windrichtingen. Dit driehoeksmotief is een subtiel eerbetoon aan de uitvinder van de driehoeksmeting: Gemma Frisius, de leermeester van Gerard Mercator. De driehoeksmeting maakte de moderne cartografie mogelijk. Buiten de buitenste cirkel ontspringen er 32 zgn. loxodromen [krommen over het aardoppervlak] aan de kompasroos en worden 32 windrichtingen benoemd. Onder de kompasroos een kunstig gelobde banderol met de titel. Verder zijn gelijkmatig verdeeld vele schepen afgebeeld, zowel in de Noord- als in de Zuiderzee.Wellicht het meest opvallende detail is de omlijsting van de kaart: een uitermate fijnzinnig gegraveerde sierrand waarbinnen de windrichtingen zijn aangegeven. Alleen al het aanbrengen van deze Moorse rand, van oorsprong een Arabisch motief, heeft de graveur vele dagen ?arbeijt ende moeite? gekost. Het graveerwerk van deze rand doet sterk denken aan de Antwerpse kunstenaar en goudsmid Caspar van der Heiden.Voorts is opvallend dat de belettering op de kaart zeer zorgvuldig is gegraveerd: zo zijn alle toponiemen horizontaal aangebracht, hetgeen rust brengt in de voorstelling. De gebruikte letter is, naast de gegraveerde hoofdletters, een sierlijk toegepaste cursief, die door Gerard Mercator in de cartografie werd ge?ntroduceerd. Kortom, dit alles beschouwend is dit een Rembrandt onder de kaarten. Tenslotte, kenmerkend voor dit exemplaar is de zeer goede drukkwaliteit, elk detail is haarscherp gestoken en komt ook als zodanig naar voren.Cornelis de Hooghe was een buitenechtelijk zoon van keizer Karel V en een van de meest intrigerende cartografen van de Lage Landen. De smokkelvaart vanuit Veere, via Ipswich naar Spanje, had hem een vermogend man gemaakt. Maar zijn wens om deel te nemen aan het grote spel in het politieke wespennest van de nog jonge Opstand van de Lage Landen, werd hem noodlottig. De Hooghe had de opdracht voor een tegenopstand ten gunste van de Spaanse bezetter aanvaard. Bij het slagen van het complot kon hij hertog van Gelre worden. Bij het drukken van twee opruiende geschriften werd hij echter verraden, waarna hij werd onthoofd en gevierendeeld.Van zowel de eerste als de tweede staat van deze kaart zijn slechts enkele (in totaal 15 bekende) exemplaren bewaard gebleven, waarvan een handvol in particulier bezit.Literatuur:Hollandia Comitatus (Blonk) 2000, nr. 6.Caert Thresoor 2013-3 (Geradts): Cornelis de Hooghe (1540-1583) keizerlijke bastaard, kartograaf en opstandelingPrijs: ?22.500,- (incl. lijst).

        Commentaries

      1565. First Edition . CAESAR, Gaius Julius. The eyght bookes of Caius Iulius Cæsar conteyning his martiall exploytes in the Realme of Gallia and the Countries bordering uppon the same translated oute of latin into English by Arthur Goldinge. London: Willyam Seres, 1565. Small octavo, contemporary full dark brown calf sympathetically rebacked, blind-stamped centerpiece on both covers, raised bands, renewed endpapers; collation: *8; **4; Mm8; Nn2; A-Ll8. Housed in a full black morocco gilt custom clamshell box. $22,000.First complete edition in English of CaesarÂ’s Commentaries, a landmark translation by Arthur Golding from the original Latin, including the first translation into English of De Bello Gallico (The Gallic Wars), in contemporary binding.Caesar's only extant work apart from his history of the Roman Civil Wars and a few letters, his Commentaries is ""the most widely studied military handbook in literature and a model of clear, straightforward composition"" (Hornstein, 81). ""There are few better models of pure narrative than Caesar. He concerns himself almost exclusively with action. Characters and personalities are revealed by the kinds of action his people perform. He rarely discusses his plans beforehand with the reader. The results reveal the plans. The consequences award praise or blame"" (Rexroth, Classics Revisited, 97). The eighth book of the Commentaries was written by Aulus Hirtius, one of Caesar's generals and one of the consuls appointed immediately after Caesar's assassination. In addition to this work, Golding is also known as the translator of the influential English version of Ovid's Metamorphoses. ""It is quite certain that Shakespeare was well acquainted with his work"" (DNB). ""The first English translation of De Bello Gallico, with the eighth book by Aulus Hirtius"" (Pforzheimer). John Tiptoft's 1530 edition of the Commentaries in English consisted only of a series of excerpts, and while the title page claimed it to be from the original Latin, it was actually made from a French translation of the original. State of the colophon with printer's address ""at the signe of the Hedge-/hog"" (vs. ""Hedge-/hogge""), ""probably worked off simultaneously"" (Pforzheimer). Text printed in Gothic type. STC 4335.
