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

      Wahrscheinlich Antwerpen spätes 16. Jahrhundert. 3 Blatt. Ca. 6 x 4,7 cm. (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. Dezember 1603 in Antwerpen), war ein flämischer Maler des nördlichen Manierismus. - Thieme-Becker XIX, Seite 31ff. (für Jode), Th.-B. XXXIV, S.555 f. (für Vos).

        Epigrammata Graeca, selecta ex Anthologia. Interpreta ad verbu[m], & carmine, ab Henrico Stephano: quaedam & abaliis. Loci aliquot ab eodem annotationibus illustrati. Eiusdem interpretationes centum & sex unius distichi, aliorum item quorundam epigrammatum variae.

      - [Genève], execudebat Henricus Stephanus, 1570. In-8 (175 x 115 mm), vélin souple de l'époque, titre manuscrit au dos, (4) f. et 311 p. [sign. a-t8, v4], vignette de titre à la marque des Estiennes, caractères romains, italiques et grecs, bandeaux, titres courants. Edition en partie originale imprimée avec soin par Henri Estienne, à l’aide d’une grande variété de polices de caractère. L’ouvrage est composé d’une sélection de 260 épigrammes grecques, qu’Henri Estienne enrichit de ses propres traductions en prose et en vers, ainsi que de quelques pièces de son ami Paul Schede (Paulus Melissus). Selon Fred Schreiber, la partie la plus intéressante réside dans les multiples traductions qu’Henri Estienne donne de certaines épigrammes (p. 265-296): il offre, ainsi, 106 versions différentes du même distique, une performance qui lui procurait une si grande fierté qu’il l’annonce dans la page de titre, expliquant même, dans sa dédicace au comte Otto von Solms-Sonnenwalde, qu’il avait accompli ce tour de force poétique pour combattre l’ennui qu’il éprouvait lors de ses voyages à cheval. Cette publication causa l’emprisonnement de l'auteur, qui n’avait pas sollicité l’autorisation préalable du Conseil de Genève. (Graesse II, 506. Renouard, ‚‘Estienne‘, 134, n° 4. Schreiber, ‚‘The Estiennes‘, n° 177). Une page de parchemin manuscrit et enluminé a été utilisée comme fond pour la reliure. Petite signature ex-libris de l'époque sur le titre : S. Bartholomae Noviomensis [Noyon]. Trois lignes manuscrites anciennes en grec sur la première garde blanche. Bel exemplaire, grand de marges, bien conservé dans sa première reliure de vélin souple.

        Picture scroll of an Imperial wedding procession.

      Probably Constantinople, second half of 16th century.. Gouache paintings raised in gilt on paper roll, mounted on cloth, 11 cm in height, total length 1.96 metres (divided into two parts of 390 and 1570 mm each), depicting an Ottoman wedding procession with captions in Italian. Matted and framed.. A unique and outstanding record of a 16th century Imperial wedding procession at the Ottoman court, nearly two metres in length. The scene is divided into several sequences: 1) Five groups of riders with musical instruments (trumpets, drums, and cymbals. 2) Two dignitaries carrying ornamented standards (or plants?), followed by "Aga eunuchi della sposa". 3) "Aga che mena il cavallo della Sposa" (Aga leading the bride's horse). 4) The bride on horseback, inside a tent draped in gold and surrounded by four men (possibly Muslim clerics?). 5) "Donne che vano dietro alla novizza", wearing white niqabs. 6) A eunuch leading a large red covered wagon in which we can glimpse other veiled women. 7) "Altro eunuco, Aga cioe guarda Dame". 8) Several dignitaries, mounted and bearing arms. 9) The "paggi della sposa", bearing flowers. 10) Musicians: "trombetta e timpano che servono la sposa", followed by more eunuchs and riders. 11) An elder, bearded dignitary in a white turban and royal robes closes the procession, followed by a single rug-bearer. - For over a century after the fall of the city in 1453, the Venetian and Genoese ambassadors in Constantinople represented the only effective channel for the West to build trade relationships with the Ottoman Empire. A new generation of Genoese and Venetian nobles from the wealthy merchant families maintained commercial ties with the East by taking advantage of these political liaisons. To their eyes, the Turkish world with its customs and traditions, so very different from those of the Western world, would certainly appear worthy of being observed closely and depicted in all its detail. Here, a gifted amateur painter, very likely an educated Western commercial traveller, has recorded in scroll form an entire nuptial procession, crowded with elegant, sumptuously-dressed figures occupying various roles and offices. The Italian captions in a late 16th-century hand identify several characters and their functions. The entire scene revolves around the central figure of the bride, served by a group of eunuchs and accompanied by "paggi" (pages) and veiled bridesmaids. The bride is, in fact, invisible to the viewer, hidden behind the draperies of a tent on horseback. Very well visible, on the other hand, are the richly coloured garments worn by the mounted dignitaries accompanying the parade, all wearing their specific headdress, a distinguishing feature of their office within the Ottoman courtly society. The colourful scene gives evidence not only of the artist's talents for decoration and ornament, but also of his uncommon attention to ethnographic detail: clearly, the observer of this procession aimed to record truthfully the various figures he saw, individualizing them by their different features. The beards, moustaches, shoes, and headdresses in this scroll are certainly not drawn indiscriminately, but rather are a direct, faithful record of the participants in a foreign society's ritual, a world whose exotic charm continued to attract the Western traveller and made him preserve the Turkish interpretation of a familiar courtly event in this sweeping panorama. The wedding procession perfectly condenses the cross-section of Ottoman noble society and its protagonists in all their various functions at the end of the 16th century. Very similar processions are depicted in the Dryden Costume Album (Trinity College, Cambridge, MS R.14.23) and the Kassel University Library's Ms. hist 31 (p. 115), both of which are considerably shorter and folded in leporello style. All these late 16th century books and drawings testify to the increased contact in this period between Europe and the Ottoman Empire and to the subsequent interest in Ottoman culture. While the European taste for the Orient could sometimes veer towards the fantastical, these manuscripts give evidence of genuine and sensitive intellectual enquiry. Images of the Ottoman Empire became fashionable souvenirs of Oriental travel from the 16th century onwards and would remain in vogue until the 19th century. - Occasional chipping with slight loss to colours; remains of a collection label, but generally well-preserved.

      Lugduni, apud Haeredes Iacobi Iunctae, 1570. In-16 p. (mm. 161x108), p. pergam. molle antica con legacci (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, 227 cc.num., 1 c.b., con alc. disegni astronomici nel t. "Edizione originale" di questa rara opera del carmelitano Francesco Giuntini (Junctinus o Junctin) (1523-1590), maestro di teologia, letterato e uno degli astrologi più famosi della seconda metà del Cinquecento. Fu tra i primi a ripudiare le antiche tavole astronomiche e ad usare quelle di Copernico, pur non accettandone la riforma. Cfr. Cantamessa, ?"Astrologia?", I,1838: ?"Autore, 3 anni più tardi, dell?'enorme "Speculum astrologiae" nel quale quest?'opera è riprodotta, il Giuntini anche qui scrive di astrologia, sia pure esclusivamente riguardo alle cosiddette Rivoluzioni, cioè agli oroscopi per ciascun anno o per anni determinati, calcolati e tracciati sulla base dell?'oroscopo di nascita, o radicale ("Radix").. Giuntini, come tutti gli astrologi dei secoli XVI e XVII, ha l?'irresistibile tentazione di drammatizzare?". Cfr. anche Adams,I,J-439 - Caillet,II,5694: ?"Junctin était correcteur de l?'imprimerie où a été édité cet ouvrage?" - Non citata dal Riccardi. Qualche lieviss. uniforme arross. altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

        Opera di M. Bartolomeo Scappi, cuoco secreto di Papa Pio Quinto divisa in sei libri

      Roma, 1570. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Good Condition. Full early vellum with modest soiling and discoloration, author penned to spine, lengthy inscription in Italian on the front pastedown. Lacking the title (with an attractive old manuscript facsimile tipped in) and preliminaries (starting on page 1), and any blanks as well as 6 plates comprising the frontis portrait, the folding papal banquet, the main kitchen, the room next to the kitchen, the machine to turn spits and the foot warmer. 22 plates present, one detached, old pen marks on the verso of another, modest general soiling, heavier in spots - good impressions generally. Scattered age toning and occasional mild stains to the text, small dampstain to the upper margin in one section, mild worming in the lower margin in another, small hole on the final leaf touching a few letters. A largely complete copy of a book, because of it's enormous utility, often found in even worse shape. 369 (including a section of curious foliation between 128 and 140), 7, and 22 leaves of plates. Vicaire 771 (Venice) , Cagle 1182 (Venice), Oberle 75 (the 1605 ed.), Bitting 419. The first Roman edition (the first year as the first Venetian with different pagination but the same plates - no priority has ever been established, though Scappi was working in Rome) of the greatest cookery treatise of the Renaissance. Not until La Varenne's Cuisinier Française in 1651 would a work of even roughly comparable importance be published and that is absent talk of the remarkable engravings - including the first fork ever pictured - depicting the method and implements of a new sort of cookery. Though sprung from and describing elaborate banquets of mind-boggling complexity (one banquet that he describes has 159 dishes), the individual recipes were suitable for middle class tables, and remain fully recognizable as staples of Mediterranean cuisine - not until Elizabeth David published Mediterranean Food in 1950 would England start to contemplate eating this well. Size: 4to (quarto). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Cooking, Wine & Dining; Inventory No: CAT000072.

For all practical purposes the earliest purchasable text in English of &#145;The Ship of Fools&#146;, preceded only by an edition of the same translation published by Pynson late in 1509, and a translation by Henry Watson published by Wynkyn de Worde earlier the same year, both of which are now very rare. The main text is a rather loose rendering of &#145;Das Narrenschiff&#146;, a satirical poem by the humanist poet Sebastian Brant (1458 - 1521), published originally in German in 1494, but based not upon Brant&#146;s original but on a Latin version by Jacob Locher, first published in 1497 and here included as a parallel text (printed in Roman type, the English text being in Gothic), with hints from the version in French by Pierre Rivière dating from the same year, and also from a version in Dutch. The Barclay text is supplemented not only by side-notes, but also by interpolations in verse, by Barclay, for the most part identified as such by sub-titles. The woodcuts in the present edition are from the same blocks that were used by Pynson in the original edition of Barclay&#146;s translation, and were cut after the Parisian copies made for the 1497 French translation. The Parisian blocks in their turn were imitations of the woodcuts used in the original German edition (Basel, 1494), which used to be ascribed to Dürer, though are now considered to have been the work of the Master of the Bergman Printing House. &#145;Das Narrenschiff&#146;, in which each of the one hundred and eleven fools contained in the ship embody some vice or other human imperfection, was one of the most popular books of its time. Added in this edition are two extra related and interesting texts: &#145;The Mirrour of good Maners. Conteining the foure Cardinal Vertues, compiled in Latin by Dominike Mancin, and translated into English by Alexander Barclay priest, and Monke of Ely. At the desire of the righte worshipfull sir [sic] Giles Alington Knight.&#146; [ff.(1)-(42): (STC 17243, the second edition of a translation of &#145;De quattuor virtutibus&#146; first published c.1518), and &#145;Certayne egloges Of Alexander Barclay Priest, Whereof the first three conteyne the miseryes Of Courtiers and Courtes of all princes in generall, Gathered out of a booke named in Latin, Miseriæ Cvrialium, compiled By Eneas Siluius [PICCOLOMINI, i.e., Pope Pius II] Poet and Oratour.&#146; [ff.(1)-(24): (a reprint of STC 1384/5)]. The limp vellum wrappers of this volume could never have been intended as a permanent binding. It must have been expected that the purchaser of so expensive a thing as a thick folio volume would have it properly bound in leather over boards (conceivably of oak). At the time this volume was published, printers were still usually their own publishers, and it is a reasonable assumption, therefore, that the book was bound as we now see it for, or by, Cawood - for as McKerrow notes &#147;many of the early printers were also binders&#148; (Introduction to Bibliography, 1928, p.121). Limp vellum wrappers represented a cheap way of protecting the text until a purchaser were found. If this is the case, the printer&#146;s waste used for the end-papers is not without interest, since it consists of two preliminary leaves from a folio Great Bible, and Cawood himself, who died in 1572, printed editions of the Great Bible in 1568 and 1569 - just one year before the present volume. The end-papers, however, are not from Cawood&#146;s Great Bibles, but apparently from the seventh edition of the Great Bible, printed in 1541 by Richard Grafton, the leaves concerned being headed alternately &#145;The Prologue&#146; and &#145;To the Reader&#146; and being identifiable as to their origin by the existence at the end of the Prologue beneath the words &#145;God save the King&#146; of two pairs of large initials, in each case &#145;H&#146; and &#145;R&#146;, the first pair decorated and an inch high, the lower pair some two and a half inches high and of very elaborate design, and also by the signature mark, which is a Maltese cross. Between the upper pair of initials is what appears to be an ownership inscription in an early (court) hand, now largely illegible. The question arises, if the volume were so dressed for Cawood, how he came to be using a 1541 Great Bible as waste-paper in 1570? - and it is an interesting speculation that he may earlier have been using it as printer&#146;s copy. The missing leaves are ¶1 (title); D1, I5, Q6, Cc2 and Cc5, Ff2, Oo6 (Fols.9, 53, 96, 152, 155, 170, and 222 in &#145;Stultifera Navis&#146;); the second C3 and C4 (&#145;Mirror of Good Manners&#146;); C and D 1, 2, 5, and 6 in the (third and fourth &#145;Eclogue&#146;). In this copy the following errors of foliation have been noted: 31 marked 13, 99: 96, 150: 156, 191: 188, 200: 100, and 201: 205. STC (2nd ed.) 3546; Pforzheimer, 41; ESTC S107135.

        S. Thomas.

      - Holland or Antwerp, ca. 1570 - 1580. Engraving. 53 x 34 mm.*Bartsch IX, 545 and cf. VIII No. 49. Pauli, Beham, No. 45a and No. 51a. Nagler, Monogrammisten III No. 1519 (No. 7): 'Sehr gut gestochen sind die Apostel . Diese sehr schönen Blätter'. Hollstein, Dutch, XIII 61. Very good impression on thick laid paper of this beautiful engraving showing S. Thomas holding a lance in his right hand, with subscription 'S. Thomas, HSB (Hans Sebald Beham)'; in the left lower corner the minuscule monogram HSD; in the left upper corner the number 7. The original suite of the 12 Apostles was made by Hans Sebald Beham (Nürnberg 1500 - Frankfurt a.M. 1550) in 1545 - 1546. According to Nagler the Monogrammist HSD lived in Holland or Antwerp ca. 1570 - 1580, where he made also engravings after Peter van der Borcht, which were published in Amsterdam, and after Pieter Breughel the elder. According to Hollstein he lived ca. 1546 - 1580 in Antwerp. Nagler praises the high quality of this engraving and disagrees with Bartsch, who ascribes this print to a German master. S. Thomas is the patron Saint of architects. - Lightly browned; left and right side with thread margins, upper and lower margins cut to the plate-mark. From the famous Viennese collection of Franz Gawet (1762 or 1765 - 1847) with his signature on verso (Lugt No. 1069). His collection is well-known for its very high quality.[(5450)]

PMM 92. "Palladio&#39;s lasting influence on architectural style in many parts of the world was exercised less through his actual buildings than through his textbook. This is divided into four sections: orders and elementary problems, domestic building, public building and town planning and temples. Palladio&#39;s style was directly inspired by Roman classical models through the writings of Vitruvius and Alberti. Its characteristics are those of classicism: symmetry, order, fixed mathematical relations of the parts to each other and to the whole, logic and monumentality&hellip; In spite of the vogue for the baroque and the fact that Palladio left no immediate successors, his book exerted a powerful influence on contemporary architecture and classical ideals until the end of the eighteenth century. In England&hellip; &#39;Palladianism&#39; became a party label in the world of connoisseurship and England blossomed with buildings &#39;in the Palladian style&#39;-two centuries after Palladio had created it. From England the style made its way into Scotland, Ireland and America" (Printing and the Mind of Man 92).&#8232;&#8232; "The Quattro Libri exerted an astonishing impact on the architects and architecture of the centuries following its publication, and helped make Palladio the most imitated architect of all time" (Wiebenson, Architectural theory and Practice).  Palladio&#39;s neo-Renaissance followers include Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, and Thomas Jefferson.  In fact, Jefferson&#39;s designs for his Monticello estate and the University of Virginia were based on Palladio&#39;s  Four Books, which Jefferson referred to as his "Bible".&#8232;&#8232; Venice: Domenico de&#39;Franceschi, 1570. Folio, early (possibly contemporary) Italian vellum. Expert (and likely early) unobtrusive reinforcement to the hinges of the versos of the first two leaves. Two tiny wormholes to first few leaves; a few spots of dampstaining in the first few gatherings; otherwise text exceptionally clean and crisp with unusually wide margins. An outstanding copy in beautiful early Italian vellum.

      Basil:: P. Perna,, 1570.. Third and final, enlarged edition of Olympia&#39;s Opera to be edited by Celio Secondo Curio "revised during his dying hours" and which also includes his dedication to Queen Elizabeth of England.. 8vo, [16] 511. With woodcut printer&#39;s device and elaborate woodcut border facing the beginning of the text. Bound in contemporary green vellum with red fore-edges which are tooled in blind.

Contemporary owner has supplied an index on the back paste-down; later owner&#39;s inscriptions on front paste-down; some light toning of paper. This is a much enlarged edition of her work, the second edition was only 278 pages. § VD 16, M 6288; Adams M 1740; Erdmann 116. Olympia Morata (1526-1555) was born in Ferrara and first educated by her father. In 1540 she was invited to become the companion of Anna d&#39;Este, sister of Francis I. At the court of Ferrata, Olympia also met Celio Curio, classical scholar and early convert to Protestantism, who later was to become the executor of her writings. To this period belongs her declamations on Cicero&#39;s Stoic Paradoxes and In Praise of Mutius Scaevola ... a Latin translation of a novel of Boccaccio, two Greek poems and a few letters. After a visit from the Pope, the death of her father and the scrutiny of the Inquisition, Morata was banned from the court in 1548. With her marriage to Andreas Grunthler, she left Italy to finally reside in her husband&#39;s native city of Schweinfurt where she was able to resume her studies. They left during the siege of Schweinfurt and her husband was able to find a position in Heidelberg. However, their health was destroyed and they died of the plague. Erdmann notes: "Morata surely was one of the most learned women of her age. For her, learning was not a mere ornament, but her true identity. She also was one of the very first women whose writings were put on the index. In fact her name is found on the list of prohibited authors of the &#39;second class&#39; in the Clementine Index of 1596

        Il Soldato . nel quale si tratta di tutto quello, che ad un vero soldato, & nobil cavalliere si conviene sapere, & essercitare nel mestiere dell'arme .

      Venice, Gabriel Giolito di Ferrara, 1570 (colophon: Venice, Giovanni Griffio, 1569). - Small 4to. [8]f + 254p. Without last blank leaf. Roman & italic letter. Title with Giolito's phoenix device incorporated in cartouche and ornamental head-piece, a full-page woodcut of a condottiere on a war horse, 13 textual woodcuts, 26 letter diagrams showing troop formations (1 full-page), decorative woodcut initials and ornaments at beginning. 18th century vellum. First edition, second issue. A general treatise on the art of war by a Bolognese author in the Parman service. Book I is devoted to the duties of a commander and his senior officers; book II treats infantry tactics and battle orders - the author advocates separate formations of pike-men and arquebusiers, each made up in rows of six, marching in parallel order for mutual support; book III on fortification appears to be largely based on Maggi & Castriotto's Fortificatione delle città (- see Jähns 820); book IV instructs on drawing up plans for siege craft and on guarding a conquered city. The splendid full-page woodcut of a mounted condottiere in full armour facing the first page of text is thought to be based on Titian's equestrian portrait of the Emperor Charles V, although the fleur-de-lys decor of the caparison would suggest a French king. Published by Giolito as part of his historical series 'Collana historica' under the editorship of Tommaso Porcacchi. Mora's dedication to Ottavio Farnese, Duke of Parma, is dated 23 June 1569; most of this edition printed by Griffio was acquired by Giolito, who added a preface by Tommaso Porcacchi to Lodovico Malaspina and a new title page with the date 1570 - Bongi, Giolito, II, pp300-304; see also Promis, C., 'Gl'ingegneri e gli scrittori militari bolognesi del XV e XVI secolo' in Miscellanea di storia italiana, vol.4 (1863), pp685-6. A very good, crisp copy. Adams M-1738; Bongi II, pp300-304; Breman 218; Cockle 539; Jähns 726 & 820; Jordan 2598; Mortimer 314 (with reproduction of title, full-page woodcut & a text-page with diagram of battle formation made up by arrangement of letters); Riccardi II,182; Spaulding & Karpinski 29.
