        The Scholemaster

      London: printed by John Daye,, 1570. Or plaine and perfite way of teachyng children, to understand, write, and speake the Latin tong, but specially purposed for the private brynging up of youth in Jentlemen and Noble mens houses, and commodious also for all such, as have forgot the Latin tonge, and would, by themselves, without a Scholemaster, in short tyme, and with small paines, recover a sufficient habilitie, to understand, write, and speake Latin. Small quarto (182 x 130 mm). Eighteenth-century polished calf, gilt panelled spine with raised bands, sides with double gilt fillet borders. Dark red goatskin pull-off case by Riviere-Mounteney with raised bands and gilt lettering. Black letter, title within border of typographical ornaments, woodcut initials and typographical tailpieces, large woodcut printer's device on colophon leaf. Ruled in red throughout. Occasional spots and some finger-soiling, a few headlines shaved, an excellent copy. First edition of the most important Tudor work on education. Known for his beautiful handwriting, Roger Ascham (1514/15?1568) was appointed tutor to Princess Elizabeth in 1548, Latin Secretary to Queen Mary in 1553 and private tutor to Queen Elizabeth in 1558. The Scholemaster was written at the suggestion of Sir Richard Sackville following a debate over dinner with Sir William Cecil and others on the question of flogging children. Ascham was vehemently opposed to the practice. Ascham was particularly influenced by the educational ideas of his long-time friend and correspondent, the Strasburg humanist Johann Sturm. The Scholemaster is divided into two books: the first describes the ideal tutor and scholar and draws heavily on Plato; the second treats the method of instruction by double translation using proper imitation of classical models, and draws equally heavily upon Cicero. The book remained unpublished at his death and was published by his widow Margaret, who signed the dedication. "This book, which popularized the educational views of Renaissance Englishmen, has made Ascham famous among educational theorists, and one of the most influential of their number. He was concerned to rear an élite capable of assuming what he considered their proper place in serving the commonweal, and he wrote in English to guarantee as wide an audience as possible, thus opening up ideas previously hidden from those who knew no classical languages" (ODNB). Provenance: Wyllyam Hardyan[?], near contemporary inscription at foot of second leaf; old ink Latin inscription on title; Henry Cunliffe, bookplate; extensive notes on front free endpaper in a 19th-century hand; Sotheby's, 1946 (£62); Scribner's collation note dated March 1949 on rear pastedown; Harold Greenhill and H.

Der Einband, vorne datiert mit 1572 und monogrammiert mit IB (= der Drucker Johannes vom Berg?

Zu Leben, Werk, Editions- und Rezeptionsgeschichte des Predigers Mathesius (1504-1565) vgl. Jöcher II,101ff Goedeke II 101, 190, 629 VD16 M 1494 RGG III, 2048. Er genoß das Vertrauen Luthers und Melanchthons und war häufiger Gast bei L.s Tischgesprächen, von denen er etliche mitschrieb und edierte. Vorbildlich kümmerte er sich um die Bergbaugemeinde Joachimsthal (ab 1545), was ihm schließlich, auch wegen der Bedeutung des Silberbergbaus in Joachimsthal, die Begnadigung durch Ferdinand I. einbrachte, als er im Schmalkadischen Krieg wegen Hochverrat angeklagt war: Urache war seine Parteinahme für die falsche (protestantische) Seite. Vorliegende 17 Predigten (von insges. ca. 1500 überlieferten M.s), in denen er die Biographie Luthers lieferte, erschienen posthum zuerst 1566, dies ist also die zweite Ausgabe, und zählen neben den "Sarepta" (Bergwerkspostille) zu seinen Hauptwerken. Sie sind die "bahnbrechende erste eigentliche Lebensbeschreibung Luthers" (RGG, III, 2048). Provenienz: aus dem Besitz des pietistischen Erbauungsschriftstellers Erdmann Heinrich Graf Henckel von Donnersmarck mit dessen hs. Besitzvermerk auf Innendeckel. Nach dem Studium und folgender Reisetätigkeit lernte er z. B. Francke, Arndt und Spener kennen und blieb ihnen verbunden. Es gelang ihm nicht, eine öffentliche Stelle zu erreichen, so dass er als Herr auf Pölzig in Sachsen-Altenberg privatisierte und sein Seelenheil anstrebte. ADB 11, 731.

        Sechs kleinformatige Porträts auf drei beidseitig bemalten Blättern. Originale Tuschzeichnungen eines holländischen Meisters auf getöntem Büttenpapier.

      (kleine Randläsuren) Laut Katalogeintrag eines renommierten Berliner Buch- und Kunstauktionshauses wurden diese Zeichnungen von Herrn Holm Bevers, Hauptkustos für niederländische und englische Kunst, Kupferstichkabinett der staatlichen Museen zu Berlin, Preußischer Kulturbesitz (SMPK) für das Auktionshaus begutachtet: Die vorliegenden Darstellungen stammen vermutlich aus einem Bilderbogen mit Darstellungen zeitgenössischer Antwerpener Gelehrter und Humanisten. Diese Darstellungen könnten dem Umkreis von Pieter de Jode zuzuordnen sein. Darstellungen desselben Formats sind zudem wohl als Vorzeichnungen zu Kupferstichen von Marten de Vos bekannt. - Pieter de Jode der Ältere (geb. 1570 in Antwerpen gest. 9. August 1634 in Antwerpen) war ein flämischer Kupferstecher und Verleger, Marten de Vos, auch Martin oder Maerten de Vos (geb. 1532 in Antwerpen gest. 4.

He began his career as a lawyer. Educated in law at the Universities of Parma and Bologna, where he may have taught after finishing his studies, he went on to a career as a church official and was considered to be one of the finest canonists of his time. His Commentaria, also known as the Apparatus in Quinque Libros Decretalium, is a influential commentary on papal decrees in the books of the Corpus Juris Canonici. Our 1570 edition is enhanced by the commentary of Roselli and the appended interpretive summary/index by Ubaldi, which includes notes by Legge. A second edition was published in 1571.

Hofprediger an der Hofburgkapelle zu Wien. Immer wieder hatte er die Erzherzöge Ernst, Matthias und Maximilian als Zuhörer. Dadurch trug Scherer sehr zur Festigung und Verteidigung des Katholizismus in den österreichischen Landen bei. Aus seinen gedruckten Kanzelreden erfahren wir, wie er selbst gegen Juden und Moslems polemisierte. Seine Vorstellungen von Teufelsaustreibungen und Hexenwahn waren stark übertrieben, ja gefährlich. Zugleich aber gewann er viele Menschen zum katholischen Glauben zurück, der berühmteste unter ihnen war Melchior Klesl, der berühmte spätere Oberhirte in Wien. - Einband berieben u. fleckig.

      Sevilla, vende se en Casa de Francisco de Aguilar, 1570. - in-4. 248ff. chiffrés. Plein vélin souple du temps (corps d'ouvrage un peu biaisé, plats frottés). Edition Originale. Ce dictionnaire bilingue espagnol-italien, le premier du genre en Espagne, est aussi le second vocabulaire espagnol après celui de Nebrija et il contient pour la première fois plus de 200 mots espagnols nouveaux. "En ese aspecto de originalidad en relación a la lexicografía precedente, sobre todo en relación a Nebrija, es en el que queremos insistir aquí, listando algunos vocablos que De las Casas incorpora a su obra, vocablos que no había tenido entrada en la lexicografía anterior y cuya fecha de primera documentación debe ser adelantada" (Acero). L'ouvrage connut un succès considérable et il fut réimprimé à une quinzaine de reprises jusqu'au début du 18e siècle. Cette première édition, imprimée à Séville où résidait l'auteur, est peu commune et bien qu'on en recense une quinzaine d'exemplaires complets dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (cf. CCPB), les collections italiennes n'en localisent qu'une poignée d'exemplaires et WorldCat, pour sa part, n'en répertorie qu'une dizaine. Page de titre salie, tache d'encre dans la marge inférieure de deux feuillets (sans atteinte au texte). Annotations et nombreux passages soulignés par un lecteur de l'époque, avec une indication manuscrite barrée sur la page de titre "A Salamanca fr. P. de Soria". Cf.

      Woodcut printer's device of the golden compass on title. 119 pp. Small 8vo, 18th-cent. Belgian mottled calf (head of spine a little chipped, joints rubbed), sides gilt, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine (label partly flaked away). Antwerp: C. Plantin, 1570. [as usual, bound after]:PHILIP II, King of Spain. Philippi II. Regis Catholici Edictum De Librorum prohibitorum catalogo observando. Woodcut printer's device of the golden compass on title. 8 unnumbered leaves. Antwerp: C. Plantin, 1570. In the struggle against the rising tide of Protestantism the need for catalogues of forbidden books became obvious. Local authorities in many countries compiled a number of these. The Council of Trent in 1563 laid down the rules to be followed in the future and made an official index, published by order of Pius IV in 1564. Phillip II tried to improve the list by adding a separate list of prohibited books in the Spanish Netherlands. I. First edition of Plantin's important printing of the famous index of prohibited books first published in 1564 as a direct result of the Council of Trent. Following the title and the bull of Pius IV (pp. 3-5), the ten basic rules designed to govern and regulate the activities of publishers and censors are published. Then, starting on page 15, is the list itself of forbidden authors and their books which continues through page 55. The books are classified alphabetically within three groups: authors of whom all works are condemned, authors of whom certain works - or parts of works - are condemned, and anonymous works. In the next section, following a four-page preface, we find on pages 61-117 an extensive appendix of books prohibited in the Spanish Netherlands, including books in French, Flemish, and Spanish. Among them are works by Rabelais and books printed by Plantin himself! The appendix was probably compiled by the Spanish theologian and scholar Benito Arias Montano (1527-98) at the order of the Duke of Alva. Pages 118-19 contain an extract from the bull of Paul V. Plantin shared the lucrative monopoly of printing the Indices of prohibited books with the Brussels printer Michel van Hamont. This monopoly symbolized the good relations the two printers enjoyed with the Spanish authorities. There are two issues of this work published in the same year, one with 112 pages and, as with the present copy, 119 pages. According to Voet, the texts are identical and the priority is uncertain. II. As is often the case, this Index is preceded by the edict (or ordinance) issued in the name of Philip II which serves as a sort of introduction to the Index. It includes instructions on how the Index should be implemented: the listed books had to be burned within three months of the publication of this edict. Very good copies of two important works which are scarce on the market. Contemporary ownership inscription on first title dated 1570 with some additional annotations on verso of final leaf of the Index. With a note on the rear free endpaper stating the book was rebound on 17 August 1756. ? Voet 1445 & 1443.

      Title with astrological diagrams and printed in red & black. Numerous woodcut diagrams in the text & woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. [442] leaves including the three blanks (**6, A8, & Y6). Thick folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over wooden boards (minor foxing, see below for a further description of the binding), orig. clasps & catches. Basel: [S. Apiario] for S. Henricpetri, 1570. First edition and a wonderful copy in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards with the original clasps and catches of one of the first "scientific" books on astrology in which the author used his knowledge of mathematics and astronomy to make predictions. It spawned numerous successors, several of which were very influential in the German Rosicrucian movement. WorldCat locates no copy in the U.S. Pegius (1523-92), a lawyer and astrologer, was counsel to the prince bishop of Salzburg and the author of a number of German-language treatises on various legal matters such as foreclosure auction law and hereditary building rights. This is by far his most important book. In his preface, dedicated to Provost Neuhauser of the monastery of Saint Zeno near Reichenhall in Upper Bavaria, Pegius explains at length his reasons for writing this book. He states that "Raitkunst," (the art of reckoning using arithmetic), "Erdmesserey" (measuring the earth), and "Gestirnenkunst" (the art of the stars) shall be the foundation of learned instruction in astrology. "Pegius' treatise begins with the [mathematical] Four Species before discussing astrology proper, with numerous astronomical interpolations, and ending with sections on chronology and calendar making."-A.D.B., Vol. 25, p. 318 (in trans.). The later years of Pegius' life were not happy. He and his wife began to have visions of the Queen of Sheba who told them local inhabitants of Untersberg near Salzburg had received a prophesy one thousand years ago, that a man named Martin, well-instructed in astronomy and law, would be resurrected and they themselves would be redeemed by his intercession. God sent an angel to Pegius and his wife in March 1581 announcing Pegius was the one spoken of in the prophecy. Pegius' wife was suspected of witchcraft and both husband and wife were incarcerated for life. This has always been considered an important book in German culture; there were facsimile editions published in 1924 and 1977. Binding: Two of the roll stamps are signed: Christ on the Cross (Haebler, Rollen- und Plattenstempel des 16. Jahrhunderts, I, 150.2 and Kyriss in Festschrift Haebler (1937), p. 138.2), plus stamp "MG" (Haebler I, 150.6 and plate I, 25, and again Kyriss in Festschrift Haebler, p. 139.6). Fine fresh copy.

Rara edizione delle Commedie di Terenzio curata dal filologo francese Vincent Cordé (Vincentius Cordatus) e pubblicata dagli eredi di Federico Torresano (Andrea, Girolamo e Bernardino) con la sottoscrizione &ldquo,Bibliotheca Aldina&rdquo,. Come precisato nella prefazione indirizzata a Girolamo Torresano, Cordé aveva inviato a Parigi a Bernardino Torresano molti dei suoi scritti perché fossero pubblicati, ma quest'ultimo glieli rinviò indietro, invitando il Cordé a rivolgersi ai suoi fratelli tipografi attivi a Venezia. Il commento del Cordé fu quindi stampato nella città lagunare senza grande successo, mentre poco dopo Bernardino decise di lasciare Parigi e fare ritorno a Venezia. Questa edizione, affatto comune, ha la particolarità di riportare in fine, nella pagina opposta a quella che reca la marca tipografica, un poema di dieci versi in lode della celebre insegna aldina (Anchorae Aldinae Venetae): &ldquo,Delphino Veneto circumdatur anchor simplex&hellip,&rdquo,. Questo poema pare essere stato stampato solo in questa occasione. Edit 16, CNCE33996, Renouard, pp. 210-211, nr. 19, Adams, T-364, Ahmanson-Murphy, 1079.

The leaf has suffered some from recycling, but it retains much of the grand feeling of the original.. 411 x 259 mm. (16 1/4 x 10 1/4"). Double column, 47 lines of text in a transitional Caroline minuscule. With majuscule rubrics in red and WITH A HANDSOME SEVEN-LINE WHITE VINE INITIAL in red, blue, green, and yellow. Testamenta written across top left column of recto in a 16th century hand, note at bottom of verso indicating that this leaf was used as a wrapper for a collection of documents dated from 15 May 1570 to 18 February 1572. Recto a little yellowed, a couple of horizontal creases and a series of needle holes from spine stitching, half a dozen small patches of faded text, but still in surprisingly good condition for a binding wrapper, the verso quite clean, the margins ample, the text almost entirely legible, and the lovely white vine initial well preserved.

        Palmosa Patmo antiquam.e detto Insula...

      1570. Rara carta di Patmos edita a Venezia da Camocio. Quest'opera, come era usuale per Camocio e altri editori suoi contemporanei, fu messa in commercio come carta sciolta prima di essere poi inserita nel volume Isole famose, porti, fortezze e terre marittime sottoposte alla Serenissima Signoria di Venetia, ed altri Principi Christiani, et al Signor Turco, nouamente poste in luce. In Venetia alla libreria del segno di San Marco. Di questa circolazione separata dal volume, esistono delle prove prive di numerazione, vendute come fogli sciolti, che si trovano in alcune raccolte lafreriane. Gli esemplari con la numerazione sono, invece, quelli inseriti negli Isolari. Raro primo stato di due. In buono stato di conservazione. THE RARE FIRST STATE of the map of the island by Camocio. In parallel to the IATO assembled in Rome and Venice, the Venetians continued to issue collections in the form of Isolario, expanded to contain plans and bird's - eye - views of towns and fortresses. Like the larger maps of The IATO these smaller ones were first issued for a loose sheet circulation, and then assembled in booklet form for interested customer. This developments suggested by a few surviving copies of a booklet first circulated with a varying number of contents, without title page or date of issue, and later with un undated title page and then with the contents more uniformly arranged and, finally supplied with an engraved consecutive numbering. The booklet usually passes under the name "Isole Famose, porti , fortezze e terre maritime sottoposte alla Ser. Sig. di Venetia" (1571) and bear the Camocio's name as a publisher. Venezia Venice G.

        Historia di Zighet, ispugnata da Suliman, re de' turchi, l'anno MDLXVI. Nuovamente mandata in luce. Venedig, Bolognino Zaltieri, 1570.

      1570. 4to. 24, (2) pp. With woodcut printer's device to t. p. 18th century marbled wrappers. Rare second Italian edition (published a year after the almost unobtainable first Turin printing) of this historically important account of the events of the Battle of Szigetvár, fought between the Turkish and the Habsburgian forces. The final page treats the number of Turkish soldiers killed in the battle. - On 8 September 1566, after a month-long siege, the Ottoman army captured the fortress of Szigetvár and beheaded the defender, Miklós Zrínyi; more than 20,000 soldiers died. Shortly before the decisive battle, Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent, who personally led the campaign, died of old age after a reign of 46 years - the longest in Ottoman history. In spite of the Turkish victory, the death of their leader, the heavy losses suffered during the siege, and an early winter caused the Ottoman army to withdraw to Istanbul. Only in 1689 did the Hungarians re-capture the city. - The first edition ("Historia Sigheti") was published in Latin by Caspar Stainhofer in Vienna in 1568. It was purportedly a translation from the Croat language, prepared by Samuel Budina (cf. Apponyi 422). The supposed author, Fran Crnka (Ferenc Czerno), was Zrínyi's surviving chamberlain. According to Göllner, the actual author (though more likely, the editor) may have been Alfonso de Ulloa (d. 1580), who also published "Commentari della Guerra" and "Historie di Europa", both appearing at Zaltieri's press in the same year as the present work. - Extremely rare; a single copy at auctions internationally since 1950.

The present treatise, based on notes dictated in his lectures, is a "clear and well-arranged account of the Canon trial, occasionally treating - and occasionally attacking - legal practice in Saxony" (cf. Stintzing/L.). - III: Latin Novella collection (limited to 98 tituli, as all early vulgate editions). - Slightly browned; small tear to f. s4 of the Novellae.

Jöcher/Adelung II, 1756): "Vvulphgangi Halleri Studiis inscr[...] Emptus Tubingae Anno 71 mense Julii." The attractive binding, apparently created for Haller or personalized for him somewhat later with his initials and the year of acquisition, shows the Seven Liberal Arts (front: plate-stamp of Grammatica - Dialectica - Retorica - Arithmetic; back: Musica - Geometria - Astrologia: Haebler I, 459, plates VII and VI) within a roll-tooled border of generals; horizontal bars of front cover stamped "WHD" ("Wolfgang Haller Doctor") and "1571". The bookbinder "HVM", who used these plates according to Haebler, "probably worked in the border area between Baden und Wuerttemberg" (ibid., p. 460). Binding slightly rubbed; minute traces of worming to front cover; altogether very attractively preserved.

        La Avarchide del S. Luigi Alamanni, gentilhuomo fiorentino.

      nella stamperia di Filippo Giunti, e fratelli, 1570. In 4º, pp. [8] 325 [3]. Con il ritratto calcografico dell'autore a c. A4v. Marca tipografica Giuntina incisa sul frontespizio e sull'ultima carta. Leg. piena pergamena semifloscia. Poema cavalleresco composto sulla falsariga dell'Iliade di Omero, ma con soggetto e ambientazioni Arturiane. Intitolata Avarchide da Avaricum, l'odierna Bourges in Francia, descrive l'assedio di questa città, capitale del Berry, dove si immagina nel 500 d.C. un conflitto tra i Celti cristiani e i Germani pagani; per l'elemento romanzesco il poema si ispira al Lancelot du Lac. Alamanni dedicò gli ultimi anni della sua vita a quest'opera. Disperando di non riuscire a terminare la revisione del testo, pregò il figlio Battista di pubblicarla dopo la sua morte. Prima Edizione a cura di Battista Alamanni, autore della dedica a Margherita di Francia, duchessa di Savoia e Berri. Cfr. Gamba, 20; Haym, p. 197; Melzi-Tosi, p. 9.

        Memoires du voiage de Constantinople de Jacques de Bracle seigneur de Bassecourt. Manuscrit du XVIe siècle. No place, c. 1570.

      1570. 4to (210 x 135 mm). French manuscript on paper. 90 ff. Flemish Bastarda in black ink, 26 lines. Bound with 16 strictly contemporary specimens of Turkish marbled paper, a series of 28 watercolours, heightened in gilt and two extensive, early 19th century manuscript additions (complete transcript of the the travelogue and a biography of the author). Slightly later vellum with ms. title. Unique, fascinating and unpublished manuscript containing the account of a diplomatic journey to the Ottoman Empire in 1570. Braeckle (1540-71), a Flemish physician, "assisted Charles Rym Baron de Bellem, Ambassador of Maximilian II in Constantinople, probably as a secretary. He wrote an account of his journey, which contains interesting details about the places he visited, the manners and customs of the inhabitants, incidents, etc." (Aug. Vander Meersch, in: Belgian National Biography II, 903). Leaving Prague on 13 March 1570, the mission passed through Vienna and then Hungary and Czechoslovakia before entering Ottoman territory, visiting the mosques and caravanserais of Sokollu Mehmed Pasha (c. 1505-79), Grand Vizier of Sultan Selim II (1524-74) who ruled the Turks at the time of Rym's and Braeckle's journey. Their stay in Constantinople lasted from 31 May to 12 August 1570, permitting the author to describe several monuments and works of art. During the journey back they travelled through Bulgaria, Serbia (they were held in Belgrade for nearly a month), and Hungary. The mission ended with their return to Germany on 23 October 1570. Jacques de Braeckle died shortly afterwards, in 1571. - The ms. is accompanied by a beautiful set of 28 original watercolours heightened in gilt. Showing Turkish people in traditional costumes, such illustrations were usually fashioned for sale to travellers in Constantinople or passed on to western merchants. However, as the present set includes the caravanserai of the diplomatic legation, it is extremely likely that these were created with the sole purpose of illustrating the diplomatic mission of Charles Rym, described within the present manuscript. The figures are captioned next to the subjects (16th century Italian script in black ink), indicating that the legends were recorded after the plates were collated and sewn together, or that they were included in books before insertion into the present volume. Among the illustrations are the caravanserai of the ambassadors to Constantinople, Sultan Selim II, the Mufti, costumes of Ottoman dignitaries and the military, a Persian, a Moor of Barbary, a lady in burqa, a Bulgarian, a giraffe, etc. The author of the Italian captions may have been the ambassador Edoardo Provisionali: he was responsible for several diplomatic missions and is known to have appreciated the Ottoman culture; furthermore, de Braeckle left Constantinople in his company (cf. Yerasimos). The manuscript is also bound with 16 remarkable specimens of 16th c. Turkish paper (title in French in pen on the first sheet: "papier de Turquie"). At the beginning of the volume is a transcription, calligraphed in an elegant French cursive of the early 19th century (18 unnumbered ff., black ink, 21 lines per page). The volume ends with a short biography of the author (2 pp., black ink, with the arms of de Braeckle). Yerasimos provides a detailed chronology of the journey, listing the major cities visited as well as monuments and curiosities noted by the travellers. - Only three manuscript copies of the present travelogue are recorded, mostly restricted to family use: two copies are in the National Archives of Belgium in Brussels (Fonds 692 Lalang, 8f., cf. Yerasimos); a third copy is bound in a miscellany and kept at the communal Archives of Ghent. - Binding rubbed, spine detached, in excellent condition internally.

        Thusciae Descriptio Auctore Hieronimo Bellarmato.

      1570. Anversa, 1570 circa. Edizione tratta dalla prima edizione del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", incisione in rame, colore d'epoca, cm 32 x 49 (alla lastra) più margini, testo latino al verso, in alto a ds. titolo entro cartiglio a volute. Il "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" è stato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo. Prima di allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione, e i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti "Atlanti Lafreriani" erano costituiti su richiesta, raccogliendo carte di alcune zone e ignorando le altre. La geniale intuizione di Ortelio fu appunto quella di riunire, in un unico corpus, la produzione cartografica del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo che sarebbe stata pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Magnifico esemplare, a pieni margini e in bella coloritura, molto ben conservato.
