        Divers poemes, partie inventions, partie traductions, et la plus part non encor' imprimez. (Reliés ensemble:) les regrets, et autres oeuvres poetiques, le tout reveu, et corrigé de nouveau

      Paris, Federic Morel 1569 - Brunet I, 749 ff.; cf. Tchemerzine III, 92 (éd. orig. 1558), Des Français à Rome, 59. (première éd.). - Joachim du Bellay , poète français, né près de Liré (1522-1560), Ami et collaborateur de Ronsard, il rédigea le manifeste de la Pléiade, Défense et illustration de la langue française (1549). Du séjour qu'il fit à Rome comme secrétaire de son cousin le cardinal, il rapporta deux recueils poétiques : les 'Antiquités de Rome' et 'les Regrets' (1558), qui expriment ses déceptions et ses nostalgies . (Le Petit Larousse). Bien qu'ayant retrouvé son ami Olivier de Magny, les tracas domestiques s'ajoutèrent rapidement à la lassitude du spectacle de la Rome pontificale. Son séjour dura quatre ans. Cet opuscule introduit les grandes traditions de Rome dans la poésie française. Du Bellay y exprime sa mélancolie en face des ruines d'un passé glorieux, soumises au travail pernicieux du temps. - Die beiden sehr seltenen poetischen Werke des französischen Lyrikers sind wie die Erstausgaben von 1568 bzw. 1558 bei F. Morel erschienen. - Der angebundene zweite Titel: 'Les regrets' enthält den Appendix: Le premier livre des antiquitez de Rome, contenant une generale description de sa grandeur, et comme une deploration de sa ruine. Plus un songe ou vision sur le mesme subiect, du mesme autheur . - Beide Werke sind denkwürdige Höhepunkte der Lyrik in der französischen Renaissance. In diesen Sonetten offenbart Du Bellay Grundzüge seiner Kunst, die auch später noch allenthalben wiederkehren Wir spüren die tiefe Erregung, die als emotionales Denken und Betrachten der ganzen Dichtung Du Bellays besonders eigen wurde Sein Verwandter, der Kardinal Du Bellay, nimmt ihn mit nach Rom in der Eigenschaft als Sekretär, Intendanten, Kassierer, kurzum zu seinen persönlichen Diensten in französischen Versen träumt er davon, wie er dort, an der erhabenen Stätte des alten und neuzeitlichen Rom, Philosophie und Mathematik, Medizin und Jura, Theologie und alle Künste studieren wird.

        La guerra d’Atila, flagello di Dio. Tratta dall’Archivio de’ prencipi d’Este. Di nuovo ristampata gli argomenti inanzi à ciascun libro & con la tavola delle cose più notabili, poste parimente nel margine, aggiuntavi da m. Alemanio Fino con la dichiaratione d’alcune voci oscure che nell’opera si contengono fattavi dall’istesso.

      In Vinegia, appresso Domenico Farri, M D L XIX. (1569) - Un volume in-8° (150 x 99), cc. 103, (12). Legatura ottocentesca in piena pergamena con titolo in oro su tassello rosso al dorso. Marca tipografica dei Farri con il sole in cornice. Capilettera istoriati; testo corsivo. Una piccola lacuna nel lembo inferiore del frontespizio (in corrispondenza di una nota di possesso di mano antica: “Di Giovanni ”). Ottimo esemplare genuino. L’opera pubblicata anonima in una prima edizione a Ferrara da Francesco Rossi nel 1568, fu ristampata a Venezia nel 1569; Gamba, Serie 1160, giudica che quest’edizione, «che ha le dichiarazioni delle voci oscure e gli Argomenti di Alemannio Fino», sia da preferirsi alla princeps. Il Barbieri, pionere degli studi romanzi, fu incaricato da Alfonso II d’Este, con lo scopo di rivendicare l’antichità del blasone nella lite di precedenza con i Medici, di «ridurre in prosa italiana l’Attila, il poema francoveneto di Nicola da Casola (conservato nel ms. della Bibl. Estense di Modena W. 8, 16-17). Il compendio, parziale, apparve anonimo nel 1568 (ristamp. Venezia 1569, con glossario e argomenti). La pregevole traduzione, con coloriture arcaiche (ma non è vero, come asserì il Tiraboschi che per primo la riconobbe al B., che l’intento fosse di far passare la traduzione per opera antica, ché la prefazione dice che l’opera “hora è stata ridotta brevemente in volgare italiano secondo il suo vero sentimento”), mostra una notevole penetrazione del contesto linguistico e senso di stile. La breve prefazione, se è del B., sarà stata manipolata, ché vi si parla dell'opera di Nicola da Casola come stesa “in lingua provenzale”, mentre il B., che non confuse mai le due lingue, in un ricordo del ’ 65 la dice composta “in lengua francesca antica”. La traduzione fu assai ammirata dal Galvani (lo studioso modenese erede in certo modo del B. in età puristico-romantica: cfr. Osservazioni sulla poesia de’ trovatori, Modena 1829, p. 16), ristampata a Parma nel 1843 e studiata poi dal Rajna e dal Vandelli» (DBI, voce di G. Folena). Edit 16, scheda CNCE 4165.

        Florum, et Coronariarum Odoratarumque nonnullarum herbarum historia. Altera editio.

      - Antwerp, C. Plantin, 1569. 8vo (165 x 107mm). pp. 311, (9), with Plantin's device on title and 109 mostly full-page woodcuts by Arnaud Nicolai and G. van Kampen after drawings by Pieter van der Borcht. Contemporary vellum over boards (spine worn). The second edition (first 1568) of Dodoens' study of ornamental and fragrant plants, one of the earliest treatises on 'garden flowers'. The work includes many of the recent introductions from Asia Minor, bulbous plants in particular, that were transforming European gardens. "Dodoens' 'Florum, et coronariarum' was devoted to those flowers, ranging from herbaceous annuals and perennials to rare bulbous plants, that were traditionally used in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to form garlands and wreaths, 'coronae'; in fact, a garden planted with such flowers was sometimes referred to in this period as a 'hortus coronarius'. Among the flowers he describes are the rose, violet, lily, marguerite, marigold, amaranth, iris, narcissus, anemone and carnation and sweet-smelling herbs such as thyme, marjoram, lavender and lavender cotton. In the second edition of this work, which was published in 1569, Dodoens included descriptions of the tulip (p. 107), the 'Flos africanus' or tagetes (p. 62), and the 'Chrysanthemum perunianum' or sunflower (pp. 305-6), which, as the auhor explained, is crowned with flowers of 'exceptional size' and is native to 'Peru and other American regions''' (Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora, p. 156).Rembert Dodoens (1517-1585), Flemish physician and botanist, was one of the three great Flemish botanists of the second half of the sixteenth century, the others being Clusius and L'Obel.The second edition is a slightly modified version of the first edition. It has 5 entirely new woodcuts, four were used to replace four illustrations in the first edition. Small stamp on title.Provenance: P. Bodenheim, P. Keller on free endpaper, bookplate of Ernst Conrad Stahl, 'ex libris Henrici Schriber ? Palens S. M. O. on title.Hunt 104; Nissen BBI, 514. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Orbis Terrae Compendiosa Descriptio

      Duisburg - Engraving with original hand-color. For nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the history of modern map making, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with forms of map projection still in use today. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, he was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearing could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing seamen with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. Mercator's monumental world map of 1569, which survives today in only three copies, was his major statement propounding the use of such a projection, and demonstrating how it might be drafted. The influence of his revolutionary ideas as illustrated by that map transformed land surveying, and his research and calculations led him to break away from Ptolemy's conception of the size and outline of the continents. This drastically reduced the longitudinal length of Europe and Asia and altered the shape of the Old World as visualized in the early sixteenth century. Unlike the work of Abraham Ortelius, a contemporary (and equally celebrated) cartographer, Mercator's maps are original. Ortelius did what most of the atlas-makers of our time engaged in: the reduction and generalization of already existing maps. Gerard Mercator, with his sense that scientific work should be original and new, checked the current knowledge of the earth's topography agaist its fundamental sources and drew maps in an original manner. This splendid map represents a re-working of Mercator's great world map of 1569 by his son and successor Rumold, who transformed it into double-hemispherical form in 1587 and incorporated it into editions of Mercator's long-lived and inlfuential Atlas from 1595 onwards. It had first appeared in Isaac Casaubon's edition of Strabo's Geographia in 1587. The engraving is a model of clarity and neatness, with typical cursive flourishes to the lettering of the sea names. Surrounding the hemispheres is a strapwork border, while between them at the top margin is an armillary sphere and at the bottom an elaborate compass rose. Gerard Mercator's prominent south-west bulge to the coastline of South America is retained. This superb map represents a seminal moment in the history of cartography, for it was primarily this map that diffused knowledge of Mercator's Projection throughout the world.

        LETTRE signée "Catrine", adressée à François de Beaumont, baron des Adrets, localisée et datée "à Collonge les Royaulx, le XXVme jour de Decembre 1569".

      - Une page (185 X 225) ; pliure horizontale renforcée au verso par une bande de papier, deux taches claires au centre n'altérant pas le texte, deux mentions manuscrites anciennes. Au verso mentions manuscrites : " A Monsieur de Beaumont chevalier de l'ordre du Roy monsieur mon fils " et " Lettre de la Reine receuë le vendredi penultiesme jour de decembre 1569 par Artignon concernant les garnisons du Chasteau du Loir " . Une lettre de Catherine de Médicis au sanguinaire baron des Adrets. Dans cette missive la reine informe François de Beaumont que son fils, le duc d'Anjou, futur Henri III, a écrit au marquis de Boissy de " desloger de [sa] ville et baronnye de Chasteau du Loir [et] l'exempter de toutes garnisons de gens de guerre ". Elle ajoute qu' " a ceste cause je vous prye de tenir la main a ce que les pauvres habitans et subjectz de madite baronnye puissent estre conservez en ladite sauvegarde et soulagez le plus qu'il sera possible ". Catherine de Médicis souhaite, à travers cette "dispense", épargner ses sujets des crimes et atrocités commis par ces hommes de guerre. En effet la guerre civile règne en France et le conflit entre catholiques et huguenots est prétexte à de sanglants massacres ; dans l'intervalle qui s'écoule entre août 1568 et août 1570 les horreurs de la guerre atteignent leur comble. François de Beaumont, baron des Adrets, est notamment affreusement célèbre pour la mort et la torture qu'il répand dans le Dauphiné partout où il passe, signalant ses triomphes par le carnage et la dévastation, détruisant les églises et frappant les populations d'une terreur dont le souvenir ne s'est pas encore éteint. La tradition rapporte qu'à Montbrison et dans d'autres villes, il obligeait les prisonniers à sauter du haut d'une tour sur la pointe des piques de ses soldats et qu'il marquait son passage aux arbres des chemins en y suspendant les cadavres de ses victimes. Ce document montre la volonté de la reine à faire triompher son désir d'union et de pacification du pays. Ses efforts furent d'ailleurs momentanément récompensés après la signature le 8 août 1570 du traité de paix conclut à Saint-Germain. Mais le souvenir de Catherine de Médicis restera toujours associé à celui d'une reine froide et sanguinaire, instigatrice du massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy (24 août 1572).

        Chart of Northwestern Europe and the Mediterranean

      Venice: Paolo Forlani, 1569. THE FIRST PRINTED SEA CHART OF THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA Copperplate engraving: 21" x 32" References: David Woodward, The Maps and Prints of Paolo Forlani (Chicago, 1990), 81.01. The cartographic oeuvre of Portuguese mapmaker Diogo Homem emblematizes the exceptional richness of nautical cartography produced in the western Iberian Peninsula in the 1500s. Homem specialized in portolan atlases, and his beautifully illuminated manuscripts survive in the collections of the Russian National Library, the British Library and several other repositories. Portolan charts are the predecessors of the modern navigational chart and first appeared in the Mediterranean world during the thirteenth century. Prior to the rediscovery of Ptolemy in the early fifteenth century, they were the most accurate maps available, compiled from the cumulative knowledge of generations of navigators. Such maps were highly effective in allowing mariners to chart a course from one port to another since directions, indicated by intricate networks of rhumb lines (lines of bearing), tended to be remarkably accurate. To chart a course, navigators simply used a straight edge to connect their point of departure to their destination, then aligned their ship parallel to the rhumb line closest to the course and followed that bearing according to astronomical observations or a magnetic compass. For determining directions at sea, portolan charts were unmatched in efficacy for centuries. In contrast to the case with most other Portuguese cartographers, Homem's original portolan charts were occasionally translated into print. The son of cartographer Lopo Homem, Diogo worked in London, Lisbon and Venice, and probably succeeded his father as Master of Navigational Charts for King Manual I of Portugal. Having worked in Venice, Homem had connections with many Venetian publishers of cartographic material, and the only printed examples of his maps originate from that milieu. This exceptionally rare map is the first state of Paolo Forlani's version of Homem's nautical chart showing Northwestern Europe and the Mediterranean. This map was greatly admired (and hence imitated) by contemporary cartographic publishers. Ortelius made mention of it in the Theatrum orbis terrarum of 1570 (see below, n. 22), while Antonio Lafreri of Rome copied it in a new plate in 1572. The map is a prototypical sea chart, with no interior detail but rather a plethora of labels signaling the locations of ports along the coastlines. Rhumb lines, indicating wind directions, radiate from points throughout the map, forming a matrix that navigators could use in tandem with an onboard magnetic compass to plot their ship's course from one port to another. Such navigational maps were of particular importance in a thriving commercial port such as Venice, which served as the main European gateway between Europe and the East.. Book.

        L'Art de naviguer. Contenant toutes les reigles, secrets, & enseignemens necessaires a la bonne navigation

      The important French edition, with Nicolay?s map of the Atlantic. 1569. Lyon. Guillaume Rouille. In 4to (238 mm x 175 mm). 4 ff. + 226 + 3 ff. + folding map. Contemporary limp vellum, possibly Spanish, ties as fragments, spine lettered in ink. A fine copy of wide margins, with light and unobtrusive damp stain to first leaves; upper right margin of title page restored without loss and away from text.Second edition in French; translated by Nicolas de Nicolai. The original edition was published in Spanish at Valladolid in 1545 under the title "Arte de Navegar". Its appearance changed the curse of navigation and redefined it in the century of discoveries (i.e. Sir Francis Drake carried a copy in his circumnavigation); it is considered the first practical treatise on navigation.The work is illustrated with over 80 woodcuts in text, including a World map after Appian (pp. 38), a striking image of the vessels going to the Indies (pp. 24) and most importantly the folding map of the North Atlantic. Medina´s map suffered several alterations from it´s first edition in 1545, this edition is considered amongst the best, the first having compass roses, actually assisting navigation, it is one of the first portraying the North Atlantic, Gulf Stream, and the trade routes to and from Spain."[Medina], who was with Cortes, may be said to have been the founder of the literature of seamanship." (Church, 98); "The known parts of North America and the northern half of South America are depicted in surprisingly accurate form. Cartier?s incursion into the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Cabot?s explorations of the eastern seaboard, and the coastal surveys of Vespucci in South America are all reflected. Europe and Western Africa are illustrated in fine engraved detail." (Cf. Dorothy Sloan, 1989, 6-108). It was subsequently reproduced in Cortes? Breve compendio and Medina?s Regimiento de Navegacion in 1552. Medina (1493 ?" 1576) was a cleric appointed cosmografo de honor in 1549 by Emperor Charles the V, after having served as librarian to the Duke of Medina. The illustration comprehends 90 woodcuts in text and the folding map with rhum lines of the Atlantic. "The French edition is now considered valuable on account of its map, on which are shown names of places on the coast of North America for the first time on any published map." (Murphy, 1654a).Provenance: Célestins de la Sainte-Trinité de Marcoussis (inscription "Celestinorum de Marcoussiaco 1643" on title), and an old contemporary note on first blank. Sabin, 47345 (for the 1554 edition).

        The Last Judgment

      Michelangelo´s Last Judgement before censorship. [ca. 1569]. Narrow margins, to thread; well-inked impression, with strong contrasts. 323 mm x 230 mm.Striking engraving by Rota (1520 ?" 1583), reproducing Michelangeo Buonarroti´s masterpiece, the Last Judgement (Sixtine Chapel, Rome), as it appeared before its restoration by Daniele da Volterra, who was commissioned to over paint the nude figure´s genitalia ?"which remains covered to-date. Dedicated to Emmanuel Philibert, Duke of Savoy (1528 ?" 1580). The print is different from the actual painting only in the inclusion of Buonarroti´s oval-portrait at the top.The scene is breath-taking, the bottom is dominated by chaos and daemons punishing and receiving the condemned, in contrast to the top, which portrays the saved with Jesus Christ at the middle, flanked by Cherubs and Angels, filled with allegories. The fact that Buonarroti´s portrait is included, thusly attributing authorship to him, is not a common feature in prints from the Renaissance.Excellent engraving, evidently an early impression well inked, showing strong contrasts and allowing the viewer to visually comprehend the complexity of all the characters included.

Première édition de la traduction française de l'Epitome de Vésale. A cette traduction annotée, Jacques Grévin a ajouté un chapitre : "Brefe Declaration des Parties du Corps Humain". Il a illustré ce volume des 40 planches anatomiques de Thomas Geminus, des copies de celles de la "Fabrica", mais qui sont gravées sur cuivre. Jacques Grévin (1538 -1570) était médecin, poète et auteur de pièces de théâtre et ami de Ramus, de Du Bellay et de Ronsard. Il a été le médecin de la duchesse de Savoie, sœur de Henri II et c'est à sa cour qu'il mourut à l'âge de 32 ans. La planche montrant Adam et Eve est dépliante. Marque de l'éditeur sur le premier et dernier feuillet. Une petite déchirure, à cause d'une signature grattée, réparée sur la page de titre, une tâche d'humidité sur les cinq premiers feuillets, reliure habilement restaurée. Bon exemplaire.
