        Historien. Von des Ehrwirdigen inn Gott seligen thewren Manns Gottes, Doctoris Martini Luthers, anfang , Lehr, leben unnd sterben. Alles ordenlich der Jahrzal nach, wie sich alle sachen zu jeder zeyt haben zugetragen .

      Nürnberg, Johann vom Bergs Erben, 1568. 8°, 4 Bl., 212 S., , OPerg. d. Zeit , Vorderer fliegender Vors. fehlt, Titelblatt und 2 Bl. mit fachfrauisch reparierten Fehlstellen (Textverlust). Bl. 184/185 mit Ausriss (Textverlust) - ansonsten gutes Exemplar Preis in CHF: 1320. Die erste Biographie Martin Luthers.Johannes Mutheisus (1504-1565) studierte nach dem Besuch der Nürnberger Lateinschule 1523/24 zunächst in Ingolstadt. Als Erzieher auf Schloß Odelzhausen an der Glonn 1526/27 las er Luthers "Sermon von den guten Werken" und schloß sich bald darauf der Reformation an. Nach einem Theologiestudium in Wittenberg (1529/30) wurde er Lehrer in Altenburg. 1532 zum Rektor der Joachimsthaler Lateinschule berufen, baute er die dortige Schulbibliothek auf; sie ist nahezu unversehrt erhalten geblieben. 1540-42 studierte er nochmals in Wittenberg, vornehmlich bei Luther und Melanchthon ("Analecta Lutherana et Melanthonia", hrsg. v. G. Loesche, 1892). Als häufiger Gast im Haus Luthers schrieb er zahlreiche Tischreden nach (separat hrsg. v. E. Kroker 1903 sowie in der Weimarer Lutherausg., Abt. "Tischreden" IV, 1916, V, 1919). Nach seiner Ordination durch Luther im März 1542 folgte M. einem erneuten Ruf nach Joachimsthal, nunmehr in das Predigtamt, und wurde 1545 Pfarrer der jungen Bergbaugemeinde, die er in konfessionellen Wirren (namentlich mit Täufern), wirtschaftlichen Krisen (Rückgang der Silberausbeuten) und politischen Konfrontationen als Seelsorger bis zu seinem Tod 1565 vorbildlich betreute. Als das prot. Joachimsthal im Schmalkaldischen Krieg 1546 mit den Gegnern der Krone Böhmen sympathisierte, mußte M. in einer Audienz vor Kg. Ferdinand I. die Interessen der Bergstadt verteidigen. Zur inneren Konsolidierung der oft undisziplinierten und spannungsgeladenen Gemeinde trug er mit ausdrucksvollen Predigten bei. Davon sind etwa 1500 zum Druck gelangt; namentlich seine Hochzeits- und Leichenpredigten dienten lange Zeit als Muster prot. Kanzelberedsamkeit. Mit Vorliebe schuf M. Predigtzyklen, entweder biblischen Texten folgend (so die Korintherhomilien 1590, Sirach 1586, Leben Jesu 1568) oder mit aktuellen Bezügen. Zu letzteren gehören die zuerst unter dem Titel "Bergpostilla oder Sarepta" 1562 gedruckten 16 Bergbaupredigten, die beachtliche Aufschlüsse über Technik, Kultur und Sprache des Montanwesens liefern. Die fruchtbare Seelsorgetätigkeit erhielt durch freundschaftlichen Austausch mit dem Joachimsthaler Kantor und Liederdichter Nicolaus Herman wertvolle Anregungen. M. festigte seine Gemeinde, indem er ihr auf Anregung Melanchthons 1551 eine Kirchen-, Schul- und Spitalordnung schuf (Abdruck bei G. Loesche, I, S. 261-330). Seine rege Anteilnahme am Joachimsthaler Bürgerleben und Bergwesen schlug sich in der von ihm exakt geführten Chronik nieder. Er stand in regem Kontakt mit vielen namhaften Theologen (Melanchthon, Caspar Cruciger), Naturwissenschaftlern ( Georg Agricola, Valerius Cordus), Humanisten ( Georg Spalatin, Joachim Camerarius) und Poeten ( Eobanus Hessus, Johann Major). Joachimsthal verdankte ihm den Ruf eines angesehenen Kulturzentrums.Als bleibendes Vermächtnis M.s gelten seine 1566 veröffentlichten "Luther-Historien", die bis heute nahezu 50 Auflagen erlebten. Dieses erste, aus 17 zwischen 1562 und 1565 gehaltenen Predigten hervorgegangene, prot. Lebensbild des Reformators diente den Lutherbiographen und Reformationshistorikern als Quelle ersten Ranges.Als politisch wirkender Seelsorger hat sich M. um die Aussöhnung zwischen Deutschen und Tschechen in Böhmen im Geiste des Evangeliums bemüht. Hingegen blieben seine Vermittlungsversuche zwischen den reformatorischen Gliedkirchen in Böhmen im Ansatz stecken. Die für die Entwicklung des Protestantismus in Böhmen verhängnisvollen Angriffe M.s gegen alle Regungen des linken Flügels der Reformation müssen in Verbindung mit den sozialen und religiösen Spannungen gesehen werden, denen er in Joachimsthal begegnete. Angesichts seiner Verbundenheit mit Melanchthon ist es schwer verständlich, daß eine Mathesiuspostille während der kryptokalvinistischen Verfolgungen in Sachsen 1589 wegen angeblich antiphilippistischer Tendenzen, die von anderer Hand eingearbeitet waren, inkriminiert werden konnte.Im Unterschied zu seiner gewandten, in vieler Hinsicht von Luther beeinflußten deutschen Prosa in den Predigten erweisen sich die poetischen Werke M.s in deutscher und lat. Sprache als schwache Leistungen. Das betrifft gleichermaßen Gelegenheitsdichtungen wie Kirchenlieder, die nicht zu Unrecht in Vergessenheit geraten sind (vgl. G. Loesche, II, S. 188-219, u. R. Wolkan, Gesch. d. dt. Litteratur in Böhmen bis z. Ausgange d. XVI. Jh., 1894).Die Förderung seines Erbes setzt sich die 1960 gegründete J.-M.-Gesellschaft zur Aufgabe, die zwei Periodika herausgibt und eine J.-M.-Medaille verleiht. Eine M.-Forschungsstelle als Abteilung des "Instituts für Reformations- und Kirchengeschichte der böhm. Länder" befindet sich in Bad Rappenau. (NDB)

Piccole macchie alle prime carte, per il resto ottimo esemplare. - Stampato originariamente nel 1559 da Vincenzo Valgrisi, l'edizione impressa nel 1568 nell'officina di Varisco del Discorso sopra le medaglie de gli antichi del veneziano Sebastiano Erizzo si apre con la dedicatoria di Girolamo Ruscelli al sovrano polacco Sigismondo Augusto. Nella lettera, datata "Di Venetia, Il dì 4. di Marzo. 1559" e già apposta alla princeps, si sottolinea come il trattato ci mostri una "bellissima, et importantissima uia da far viuer le memorie delle cose nostre et degli antichi ma ancora le medaglie stesse; le quali non solamente in oro, et in argento per l'insatiabile ingordigia umana ma ancora in rame, ò in bronzo si veggono tanto ridotte à poche". Rispetto all'edizione del 1559, il testo dato alle stampe da Varisco è più esteso, con numerose aggiunte nella sezione intitolata Dichiaratione di molte medaglie antiche. Ulteriori ampliamenti sono poi riscontrabili sia nella successiva edizione del 1571, impressa sempre dal Varisco ed arricchita di una Dichiaratione delle antiche monete, che in quella più tarda del 1573. Lo stesso Erizzo possedeva una ricca e nota raccolta di medaglie, poi confluita nella collezione del nobile veneziano Giovanni Domenico Tiepolo di Almorò.

Lower corner of pp. 65-66 torn with the loss of the final letter in the catchword only, some intermittent browning, a few light marks, binding a bit worn, but sound. An early edition of Guicciardini’s account of Italian history in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, comprising books I-XVI. A further four books were issued separately and are not present here.& Charles Bradlaugh, lawyer, politician and freethinker, gained notoriety by refusing to take the oath of allegiance on entering Parliament, rather preferring to offer an affirmation on account of his atheism and republicanism. Provoking much consternation, Select Committees were formed to look into the matter and he fought for the right to sit in Parliament until he was finally allowed to take his oath in 1886. An act formally allowing M.P.’s to make affirmations was duly passed two years later. Joseph Mazzini Wheeler was of a similar mind to Bradlaugh, writing and publishing many works relating to atheism and freethinking, most famously his “Biographical Dictionary of Freethinkers“ published in 1889.

      Title printed in red & black. 103 unnumbered leaves, one blank leaf. Small 8vo, modern vellum over boards. [Colophon]: Augsburg: M. Franck for G. Willer, [1568]. First edition of a Paracelsian rarity. Paracelsus' commentaries on the first five of Hippocrates' Aphorisms had been published the previous year in Cologne. The present edition comprises his commentaries on all 25 aphorisms of the first section, and on six of the second. They are followed by treatises on the medical uses of corals and the herbs hypericum (St. John's worts) and persicaria (peachwort). A slightly different version of the section on hypericum was published in the same year by Adam von Bodenstein (Sudhoff 95). In his preface the anonymous editor gives what he calls an impartial discussion of Paracelsian ideas. He points out that Paracelsus' rude and aggressive style of writing and his personal conduct might have been regrettable, but now, 33 years after his death, the controversy should moderate since there is not such a chasm between the old medical school (Hippocrates and Galen) and iatrochemistry.

He also founded the Philadelphia Pathological Society, and served as the first curator of the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington, D.C." (Christie's NY 12/7/12) "Throughout this encyclopedic work on the structure and workings of the human body, Vesalius provided a fuller and more detailed description of human anatomy than any of his predecessors, correcting errors in the traditional anatomical teachings of Galen (which had been obtained from primate rather than human dissections), and arguing that knowledge of human anatomy was to be obtained only from human sources. Even more revolutionary than his criticism of Galen and other medieval authorities was Vesalius’s assertion that the dissection of cadavers must be performed by the physician himself.This ‘hands-on’ principle remained Vesalius’s most lasting contribution to the teaching of anatomy" (Norman Library). "Galen was not merely improved upon: he was superseded; and the history of anatomy is divided into two periods, pre-Vesalian and post-Vesalian" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Adams V606.

A manuscript copy of a 1568 manuscript map of what were then islands and waterways in Zeeland, covering the eastern half of Walcheren, most of Zuid-Beveland, the southern edge of Noord-Beveland and some smaller islands. It includes the cities of Middelburg, Veere, Vlissingen and Goes, and about twenty smaller towns and villages. It is executed in pen and watercolour in subtle shades ochre, blue, yellow, grey, green and pink and represents the cities and towns pictorially (with major churches and sometimes smaller buildings and fortifications), shows roads, 7 boats and ships in the water and sandbanks. The map was originally drawn by the surveyor Lieven Ruyte (ca. 1553-1601), apparently based on his own survey, and covers an area of about 19×27 kilometres. The original map of 1568 is said to have been in the hands of the town clerk of the city of Goes but is now known only from copies. With some foxing, mostly in or near the margins, but otherwise in very good condition. Some minor tears are confined to the margins and the map is very slightly worn along an old vertical fold.

        Año de 1567. Relacion del viaje que hizo Alvaro de Mendaña con el armada de S. M. al descubrimiento de las islas de Poniente o de Salomon

      Spain: 18th-century transcript of an original dated, 1568. Folio (310 x 210 mm), 18 leaves, manuscript in ink on paper, written in a fine and legible 18th-century hand; bound in plain red-brown boards. Mendaña's voyage across the Pacific and the discovery of the Solomons. Important original account of Mendaña's voyage across the Pacific from Peru and the discovery of the Solomon Islands in 1567-8, reproduced in 18th-century manuscript from a lost 16th-century original. This was an exceptionally important voyage, and the precursor to Pedro Fernandez de Quiros's subsequent voyage and his famous project to colonise what was then thought to be the Southern Continent. Mendaña's discoveries in the Solomons of Ysabel (Santa Isabel), Guadalcanal, and San Cristobal in 1567 led to his colonising voyage of 1595 to the nearby Santa Cruz ("Austrialia del Spiritu Santo" as it became known), in the course of which he died: the command of this second voyage was taken over by Quiros, beginning the most significant chapter in the history of discovery and colonisation in the southern hemisphere. The voyages of Mendaña and Quiros, as Oscar Spate has noted, were "among the most remarkable in the whole history of maritime discovery": This handsome manuscript was acquired by Sir Thomas Phillipps from the bookseller Henry Stevens along with other manuscripts from the library of Lord Kingsborough in 1860; catalogued by Phillipps as MS 16179, it was subsequently in the private collection of the late H.P. Kraus in New York. It is a companion manuscript to another held by the National Library of Australia (Phillipps MS 16224) with the same provenance from Kingsborough via Stevens (see A. N. L. Munby, Phillipps Studies IV, Cambridge, 1956, p. 198); the NLA ms. is numbered at the head of the first leaf "No. 1" while ours is marked "No. 2". Both mss. are in the simple red-brown paper boards typical of bindings done for Phillipps. The circulation of numbered copies of the same text would make a deal of sense in the context of a political discussion between relevant senior officials in the Spanish administration. Certainly an 18th-century copying of the manuscript for wider examination very likely had its genesis in the revived Spanish interest in maintaining their mastery of the Pacific and in reviewing the early history of Spanish America and the publication or reprinting in the 18th century of many 16th-century texts concerning this. This was not merely an antiquarian exercise and can be seen against the Bourbon monarchy's attempts to reform Spain's institutions and government. Although the Bourbons were keen to learn more about their present possessions, they were not especially interested in further exploration since they had enough on their plate already. The exception to this was to forestall the claims of rival imperial powers, as, for example, on the Northwest Coast. The Solomons ventures in the 16th century would have been of interest in this context, because their location (or rediscovery as they were 'lost' for two centuries) was closely linked to the 18th century attempts to find a Southern Continent - and the Spanish in the mid to late 18th century were not so much interested in discovering a Southern Continent as concerned that British attempts to do so would threaten their control of the Pacific and their possessions in South America. Knowing what was out there was, therefore, of great strategic importance to Spain. The National Library says of their manuscript: 'From 1567 to 1568, Alvaro de Mendaña, the 25-year-old nephew of the Governor of Peru, led the first European expedition into the South West Pacific. Previous Spanish navigators had sailed west from Mexico, following courses north of the Equator towards Asia. Mendaña, by contrast, sailed from Callao in a south-westerly direction, searching for islands believed to exist 600 leagues from the Peruvian coast. Incas were said to have visited the islands and brought back "gold and silver, a throne made of copper, a multitude of black slaves and the skin of an animal like a horse". 'In February 1568, after a voyage of three months, the Capitano and the Almirante reached islands that the Spaniards were later to name the Solomon Islands. Mendaña and his crew, together with 70 soldiers and four Franciscan friars, used as their base the island of Santa Ysabel, named after the patron saint of the voyage. They spent several months exploring the islands, including San Christoval, Malaita and Guadalcanal, as well as bartering and fighting with the islanders. Mendaña had orders to form a Spanish settlement and, had he done so, it is likely that the Australian coast would soon have been discovered. However, in August 1568 he decided to return to Peru. He sailed northwards through the Gilbert Islands and eastwards to the Californian coast, eventually reaching Callao in July 1569. Two centuries were to elapse before another European, Louis de Bougainville, re-discovered the Solomon Islands. 'In 1595 Mendaña made a second Pacific voyage, discovering the Marquesas Islands. He died at Santa Cruz and command of the expedition then passed to the pilot, Pedro Fernandez de Quiros. 'Mendana's original report to the Governor of Peru is lost, but two transcripts are held in Spanish archives. The National Library has now acquired another transcript of the report, dating from the eighteenth century. Written in Spanish in a clear hand on good paper, it is 34 pages in length. It describes the voyage from Callao to Santa Ysabel and ends abruptly in early May 1568. It differs slightly from the other transcripts in its use of nautical terms and in other ways; for instance, Mendana's name is spelt correctly, whereas one of the other transcripts refers to him as Davendana. It is a detailed narrative and an important source on the earliest contact between Europeans and the indigenous peoples of the South Pacific.' 'Stories of King Solomon's gold obtained from Ophir, a land of incalculable wealth somewhere east of Suez, went back to biblical times and haunted the imagination of the European oceanic explorers of the Renaissance, including Columbus. With the Spanish conquest of Peru, a new element was added, for tales circulated that the Incas had found gold and 'black people' in islands lying across the ocean to their west. Prompted by such dreams, and the prospects of converting the heathen, the Spanish, sailing from Peru, attempted to locate these elusive lands, a search which became bound up with the quest for the great Southern Continent. 'The resulting voyages - by Mendaña in 1567-9, Mendaña and Quiros in 1595-6, Quiros and Torres in 1605-6 - are among the most remarkable in the whole history of maritime discovery, alike in their geographical results (long misunderstood as they were) and as a story of high ideals, bitter disillusions and sufferings, baseness and grandeur' (O. H. K. Spate, The Pacific since Magellan I, Canberra, 1979, p. 121). In his bibliographical note on Spanish archival sources, Colin Jack-Hinton (The search for the islands of Solomon, Oxford, 1969) records two versions of the text, one in the Archivo General de Indias, the other in the Muñoz collection in the Real Academia de la Historia. These are transcript copies of the now lost 16th-century original submitted by Mendaña to Lope García de Castro, governor of Peru. No example of the narrative was known to either Alexander Dalrymple (Historical collection of Discoveries in the South Pacific Ocean, 1770) or James Burney (Chronological history of the discoveries in the Pacific Ocean, 1803). The text, which breaks off in May 1568, is noted by Jack-Hinton as 'of considerable value within the framework of source material'. The version in the Muñoz collection was transcribed for the 1864 publication Colección de documentos inéditos relativos al descubrimiento… América y Oceanía V, and an English translation appears in The discovery of the Solomon Islands by Alvaro de Mendaña (Hakluyt Society, 1901, pp. 95-158). Comparison with the Muñoz text as printed in 1864 demonstrates that the present manuscript was prepared by someone able to make intelligent textual emendations, sometimes including matters of nautical terminology.

        De praestigiis daemonum

      Basel: Oporinus, 1568. Basel: Oporinus, 1568. <p>Weyer [Wier], Johann (1515-88). De praestigiis daemonum, et incantationibus ac veneficiis libri sex, aucti & recogniti. 8vo. 697, [55, index]pp. Woodcut illustration. Basel: ex officinal Oporiniana, 1568. 195 x 122 mm. Blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, brass clasps, rebacked retaining original spine, rear endpapers renewed, some staining; boxed. Very good. Copious notes in an early hand on front endpapers, title and verso title.</p><p>Fourth edition, revised and enlarged. First published in 1563, Weyer&#39;s De praestigiis daemonum was the first major European work to take an empirical, scientific approach to the study of mental illness; it also represents one of the most celebrated exposés of the witchcraft delusion. Defying the authorities of the Inquisition and the doctrines of the Malleus maleficarum, which assumed the reality of witchcraft and demonic possession, Weyer asserted that most witches were actually suffering from mental illness. He backed his claim with careful descriptions of a number of case histories from his own clinical experience, containing some of the earliest references to purely psychological treatment. To emphasize the superstitious ignorance of doctors who adhered to demonological theory, Weyer analyzed the effects of the stupefying and hallucinatory drugs used in sixteenth-century medicine, attributing many aspects of witchcraft to their effects. He recognized the relationship between a highly suggestible temperament and mental instability, and described the phenomenon of mass contagion of mental illness. Weyer "was the first clinical and the first descriptive psychiatrist to leave to succeeding generations a heritage which was accepted, developed and perfected into an observational branch of medicine. . . . He reduced the clinical problems of psychopathology to simple terms of everyday life and of everyday, human, inner experience" (Zilboorg & Henry, p. 228). Garrison-Morton 4916 (first ed.). Zilboorg & Henry, pp. 208-235. </p>
