        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)]

        I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura [The Four Books of Architecture]

      Venice: Domenico de'Franceschi. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. First edition of arguably the most influential architectural book in the Western World, with over 200 woodcut illustrations. PMM 92. "Palladio'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'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… 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… 'Palladianism' became a party label in the world of connoisseurship and England blossomed with buildings 'in the Palladian style'-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).

 "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's neo-Renaissance followers include Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, and Thomas Jefferson.  In fact, Jefferson's designs for his Monticello estate and the University of Virginia were based on Palladio's  Four Books, which Jefferson referred to as his "Bible".

 Venice: Domenico de'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'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'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. Two small old collection stamps on title and repaired, at an early time, in two blank places where an owner's name was removed. Contemporary owner has supplied an index on the back paste-down; later owner'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'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'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'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 'second class' 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.

        Americae sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio

      Antwerp 1570 - From the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The first state of one of the most beautiful and important of all sixteenth-century maps of America. This celebrated map was included in the first edition of the Theatrum, and all subsequent editions to 1587. The Theatrum is one of the true landmarks in the history of cartography. It was the first true atlas in the modern sense of the word (i. e. the first bound volume of maps which attempted to give comprehensive coverage to the entire world, and on a uniform format.) The map's geography was adapted from the corresponding portion of Mercator's wall map of the world (1569), and is distinguished by a large bulge on the west coast of South America, which was removed from the map's second state (1587 and later.) It is beautifully embellished with a large strapwork title cartouche and lovely surrounding floral motifs. Copper-engraving with full original color. Some staining and a couple of repairs, overall a good example. Sheet size: 16 1/4 x 21 1/4". Inventory#: p195pmat.

        Europea from Theatrum Orbis Terrarum

      Antwerp - 16 1/2" x 20 3/4" ca. 1570-1581. Each succeeding decade following the first New World discoveries created its own revolution of knowledge, but a watershed in the growth and illustration of geographical information was the atlas published in 1570 by Abraham Ortelius, a businessman native to Antwerp. The Theatrum Orbis Terrarum was the first atlas in the modern sense of the word, as Ortelius compiled the best existing maps, re-engraved them on a standardized format, and included them with text in one volume. This was a landmark innovation, and the Theatrum was arguably the first printed production to have a major impact on the world perspective of contemporary Europeans. Despite their relationship as competitors, Ortelius and his fellow cartographer Gerard Mercator were close friends, and together they represented the major proponents of the most celebrated period in the history of early-modern mapmaking. Ortelius's maps are rightly considered among the most beautiful ever produced, and the seamless combination of science and art is nowhere more visible than in his landmark map of Europe. Although the element that first strikes a viewer is the high visual appeal of the brightly colored and finely engraved map, it was in fact an extremely sophisticated summary of the most advanced geographical knowledge of Ortelius¿s time. Ortelius had gathered maps by the best existing contemporary cartographers, including Mercator, Giacomo Gastaldi, and Olaus Magnus, in order to assess the most recent strides in delineating the shape of the continent. As a result of his discerning judgment in sorting geographical fact from geographical fiction, this map was ultimately one of the most accurate made available to late 16th-century Europeans. Accompanying the advanced geographical knowledge that the map presented is an amazing wealth of visual detail. The maps of Ortelius boast examples of the most beautiful Renaissance strapwork ever engraved, and the decorative cartouche is crowned by a representation of the Roman myth of Jupiter and Europa, the classical figure from which the continent took its name. Rightly celebrated for unequalled beauty as much as for outstanding discovery, this map represents a monumental moment in the history of mapping.

Fourth collected edition in (originally published in Lyon, 1560, and Paris 1563 and 1564; all scarce) containing the source material for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Small octavo (4 3/4 x 3 in; 120 x 76 mm). [1,blank], 436, [3], [1, blank] ff. Contemporary full vellum. Yapp edges. Inked title to spine. Bookplate of Mandelle Memorial Library (Kalamazoo, Missouri), with its embossed stamp to titlepage. Vellum soiled, as expected. Small half-inch split to upper joint. A wonderful copy of an extremely rare book. Housed in a quarter black morocco clamshell case.OCLC/KVK record only one copy in libraries worldwide; institutionally rarer than the 1560 (3 cc) and 1563 (2 cc) editions. Only one copy has come to auction within the last thirty-six years, at Christie's-NY, May 22, 2001, lot 288 (with foxing, ink and damp stains); it sold for $9,600 ($8,000 plus 20% premium). No copies of the prior editions have been seen at auction during the same period. There are only two known copies of the 1564 edition, one of which has been rebound. The volume under notice is the earliest available edition in a contemporary binding.The first edition of Dominican friar Matteo Bandello's stories in the original Italian was published in Lucca, 1554. It contained 186 tales in various styles and genres ranging from the comic, bawdy, tragic, sentimental, and horrific. In 1559, Pierre Boisteau published a freely adapted French translation of six of Bandello's short stories. In the same year François de Belleforest published French translations of twelve more of Bandello's stories. In 1560, an edition from Lyon brought these eighteen stories into a single volume, reprinted by Vincent Norment & Jeanne Bruneau in Paris 1563 and 1564, and by Laurens Chancelier, Paris, 1564. The volume under notice reprints these earlier editions, each an extreme scarcity, the volume here only slightly less so. It was these French translations that won broad European popularity for Bandello's tales.It was Arthur Brooke's 1562 English rendering into verse of Boisteau's French translation of Bandello's La sfortunata morte di dui infelicissimi amanti (here as L'Histoire de deux amans, dont l'un mourut de vénin, l'autre de tristesse ), under the title The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet, that William Shakespeare directly used as the basis for his classic drama. The original Brooke is virtually unobtainable in the marketplace, with only two institutional copies recorded and no auction records since 1975. Yet, as Stuart Gillespie notes, "It is clear that Brooke was working with a story already familiar to the English audience" (Shakespeare's Books, p. 67), and while Shakespeare extensively reworked Brooke's stiff and tortured verse, the basic narrative was already part of his consciousness to re-imagine as his own. The differences between the Brooke and Shakespeare narratives are as distinct as their similarities but they both owe their existence to Bandello.This volume, then, is much ado about something, something very special, a rare and rich opportunity to possess the original source for arguably the most famous and celebrated tragic drama in the English language by the Western world's most venerated playwright. Romeo and Juliet is believed to date from between 1591 and 1595. It first appeared in print in the quarto edition of 1597. Cf. Brunet I, 638 (Lyon edition). Cf. Adams B145 (variant imprint). Cf.

        La Descrittione Della Prima Parte dell'Asia, Il Disegno della Seconda Parte dell'Asia, Il Disegno della Terza Parte dell'Asia

      1570. THE BEST SIXTEENTH CENTURY MAPS OF ASIA Copper-plate engravings: each approx: 21" x 30" Venice: 1570 References: David Woodward, The Maps and Prints of Paolo Forlani (Chicago, 1990), 36; Robert W. Karrow, Mapmakers of the Sixteenth Century and Their Maps (Chicago, 1993), 30/85.2, 30/91.1, 30/92.1. Giacomo Gastaldi was the most celebrated Italian cartographer of the sixteenth century. He was also one of the first true professionals in that field in the sense that - unlike most contemporary cartographers who frequently filled multiple roles, acting as publishers and/or engravers - Gastaldi specialized in the drafting and design of maps, only rarely becoming involved in the technical aspects of their commercial distribution. As official cosmographer to the Venetian Republic, moreover, Gastaldi had access to the most up-to-date geographical information in compiling his maps, and many of them represent the most accurate renderings of their time. Such is the case with his landmark maps of Asia, which were printed as three separate but complementary "parts." Part one of the three Gastaldi maps of Asia was published in 1559 and covered the geographical area of Turkey and the Middle East. Only two years later Lafreri published his version of the map and in 1570 the Venetian engraver Girolamo Olgiato produced a very close copy of the Lafreri edition. It can really only be distinguished by the addition of Olgiato's imprint and the removal of Lafreri's. After completing the large-scale map of Southeastern Europe, Gastaldi, once again, returned to work on his mapping of Asia. The second and third parts were published in 1561. Part two covers the modern geographical areas of Egypt, Ethiopia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, part of Iraq and Iran, Pakistan and the west coast of India. Gastaldi's part three of Asia was published in 1561, at the same time as part two, and like his other maps proved to be extremely influential to later depictions of the continent. The published travels of Marco Polo, that had appeared in Ramusio's Navigationi et viaggi (see no. 52), governed Gastaldi's rendering and the geography of this map is considered to be far superior to all previous maps of Asia. In 1570 Girolamo Olgiato published a reengraving of this map and incorporated the additions that had been made in Forlani's 1565 edition. The Philippine Islands are now visible in their entirety. The map covers the geographical area of India to Japan and China to the East India Islands.. Book.

A first manuscript version of the Anglica historia, covering events to 1513, was completed in 1512–13 and is now preserved in the Vatican Library. This work was first published at Basel in 1534 by Johann Bebel, but in a version that only went down to 1509.

        Memoires du voiage de Constantinople de Jacques de Bracle seigneur de Bassecourt. Manuscrit du XVIe siecle.

      No place, c. 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. - Stephane Yerasimos, Les Voyageurs dans l'Empire Ottoman (XIVe-XVIe siecles), Ankara, 1991, pp. 286f.

        Posliednee puteshestvie okolo svieta Kapitana Kuka s obstoiatel'stvami o ego zhizni i smerti ...St Petersburg, P.B. [= Peter Bogdanovich], 1788. 8vo. Contemporary sprinkled calf, decorated endpapers block-printed in red and green paste.

      Beddie 1570; Forbes 154; Howes 11435; Strathern, Navigations 631 (vii); cf. Holmes 40 (first German ed.); Kroepelien (1st and 3rd Russian eds). Extremely rare second Russian edition, revised and augmented, of Heinrich Zimmermann's valuable account of Cook's third and final voyage, with a description of Cook's death at Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii. Zimmermann's account is followed by articles on Tahiti, a life of James Cook, and an essay on America in general, abridged from the Akademicheskiia izviestiia for 1781 and not included in the first Russian edition of 1786. Though Cook famously discovered Hawaii during his third voyage, Russian interest centred on his explorations of the American Northwest coast, where Russian fur traders had tried to establish permanent posts since the 1770's. Indeed, the first permanent Russian settlement was established only four years prior to the present publication.Zimmermann's account was first published in Germany in 1781; it was the earliest account of Cook's final voyage to appear on the continent. It has an "ingenuousness and charm which differentiates it from the other accounts. His appreciation of Cook's character deserves to rank with that of Samwell" (Holmes). Foot of title-page with owner's entry (in Russian), back of title-page with stamp of the Russian book collector B.A. Êðûëîâà, last page and flyleaf with owner's stamps. Inner front hinge cracked, some smudges, binding chafed, spine damaged at head and foot, some wormholes. Overall a very good copy of an extremely rare Russian edition of Zimmerman's account.

Foebadi, sive Foebadii liber contra Arianos. Quae Athanasii, Anastasii & Cyrilli sunt, & quae Foebadii, nunc primum eduntur.

      N.pl. (Geneva), excudebat Henricus Stephanus, 1570.. 8vo. (14),24;431 p. 18th century vellum 17.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann I, 387; Renouard, Estienne p. 133; Graesse I,243; Adams A 2091; Butterweck, Athanasius Bibliographie, p. 64/65; Dibdin p. 196: scarce and estimable) (Details: Two morocco letterpieces on spine; borders of covers gilt; marbled endpapers, red edges; nice copy) (Condition: Lacking the last blank in the first preliminary gathering; the Opusculum of Foebadius is not bound at the end, but immediately after the praefatio) (Note: 'Editiones principes'. Renouard tells that the Manuscript of the Athanasius was bought in Geneva by Henri Estienne from a Greek visitor, and that the other works were found in the library of Germain Colladon by P. Pithou, and were handed over to Estienne. Henri Estienne, 1528-1598, the scholar/publisher who ruined himself over the publication of the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (1572), and his Plato (1578). Theodorus Beza, 1519-1605, a Calvinist theologian who became for nine years professor of Greek at Lausanne. He is best known for his Latin translation of the New Testament, his critical Greek edition of the New Testament, and for being the founder of the University of Geneva. Athanasius, 295-373 AD, is the most famous of the Alexandrian bishops, and adversary of Arian. Because of his struggle with the Arians Athanasius was banished for 17 years. In his works he fiercely defends the dogmata of the church against heretics like Arian) (Collation: §8 (minus §8) a8 b4 A - 2C8 2D - 2E4) (Photographs on request).

        Anitii Manlii Severini Boethi Inter Latinos Aristotelis Interpretes et Aetate Primi, et Doctrina Praecipui Dialectica

      4to. Limp vellum wrappers. 712pp (four pages per leaf, hence approximately 178pp). Good plus overall. Outer wrappers rather soiled, but sound; two-line contemporary ink ownership inscription near bottom of title page; preliminary leaves age toned and occasional sporatic age toning throughout text; occasional light foxing. Early (not first) printing of this oft-reprinted text, a tight and attractive copy. Roman philosopher Boethius (ca. 480-524) wrote his most famous work, "The Consolation of Philosophy," while in prison in Pavia for conspiring against his former friend Theodoric, ruler of Rome, who named Boethius consul (510) and head of government and court services (520); in 524 he was executed without trial. Boethius's translations and commentaries on the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle are credited with introducing him to the Western world. A millennium later, early printed versions such as this 1570 text reintroduced Aristotle to a far broader Western audience.
