        "Li quatro ordeni delle Terre di Germania". Manuscript by an unknown hand.

      N. p. o. d., [Italy, c. 1570-1610].. ½ folio leaf (divided vertically), written on one side.. Elegantly disposed manuscript list of a series of princes and places in the Holy Roman Empire, written in a fine late 16th-century italic hand, supplemented by a contemporary hand. - Curious listing of names of places and potentates in 'Germany' (actually, within the Holy Roman Empire, since the Duke of Lorraine and the Count of Savoy are included), enumerating every class by fours - e. g. four dukes, four landgraves, four cities, four vicars etc. Evidently either a jeu d'esprit or perhaps for a literary purpose, the piece is without any identification. Including the additions in another hand, there are 12 groups of four in all (a total of 48), enough for a deck of playing cards. In addition, the second hand has inserted digits from 1 to 12 randomly beside each group. Could this be the plan for a proposed pictorial set of cards? - Slightly browned and with small damages to edges.

        "Flores historiarvm per Matthaeum Westmonasteriensem collecti, praecipuae de rebus Britannicis ab exordio mundi vsque ad annum Domini. 1307. [Edited by Matthew Parker.]"

      London: ex officina Thomae Marshij, 1570. London: ex officina Thomae Marshij. 1570. "Folio, pp. [10], 440, 466 (i. e. 468 - a single unsigned leaf inserted between 3T1 and 3T2), [22], including the genuine blank leaf [4Q6] at the back; title within architectural border (McKerrow & Fergusson, 132), 14- line woodcut arms on A1r, 2 7-line pointille woodcut initials; contemporary full calf, blindstamped panel with fleurons in the corners enclosing a monogram, double-ruled border on covers, 18th century morocco label; joints cracked, small chips out at the top and bottom of the front cover at the joint; internally clean but with some light pencil erudite marginalia; a good copy with an interesting Irish provenance: the title-p. with an 18th century inscription ""Ioannes Carpenter Archepus Dublin et Hibernia Primus 1770"" and with a further inscription on the verso of the title-p. in Gaelic: ""Do leabhnaibh ,,,"" beneath which is Carpenter's engraved bookplate. A further inscription at the top of the second leaf reads: ""Th.

In fact, the work is a compilation from several authors and chronicles. Book 1, covering up to the year 1066, follows closely the Chronica major of Matthew Paris. Book 2 is an abridgment from the same work, with additions partly compiled and composed by various writers at St. Albans and Westminster, covering 1067-1307. The additions from 1259-1273 have been attributed to William Rishanger. The Chronica major is based on an earlier work by Roger of Wendover also known as ""Flores historiarum"", probably based in turn on an earlier St. Albans chronicle. The whole was edited by Matthew Parker. & & STC 17653a.3."

        cum Regulis confectis per Patres a Tridentina Synodo delectos, auctoritate Sanctiss. D. N. Pij IIII, Pont. Max. comprobatus. Cum Appendice in Belgio, ex mandato Regiae Cathol. Maiestatis confecta

      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.

        Italiae Novissima Descriptio Auctore Iacobo Castoldo pedemontano.

      Anversa, 1570 ? 1580 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 35,8 x 50,3 ca. (alla lastra) più margini, titolo in alto a destra, entro cartiglio con grotteschi e volute geometriche; scala grafica in bs. a ds. con soprastante sirena; quattro punti cardinali evidenziati su nastri; vascelli, pesci e divinità nel mare, allegorie; margine graduato su tutto il perimetro, senza reticolato, testo latino al verso. Carta dell'Italia che deriva da quella disegnata dal cartografo piemontese Giacomo Gastaldi e facente parte del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" di Abrahm Ortelius, edito nel 1570 ad Anversa; quest'opera conobbe un'enorme fortuna tanto che fino al 1612 ne furono realizzate ben 42 edizioni. Questa carta, rispetto a quella prima edizione (edita sia con testo latino che con testo francese al verso), contiene tuttavia alcune varianti negli elementi decorativi. Nella prima edizione, le due figure mitologiche, Nettuno e la Sirena, sono abbracciate in atteggiamento ?amorevole?, tanto che si presume che la versione sia stata sottoposta a censura, costringendo l' Ortelio a realizzare una variante alla carta nel 1584. L' elemento che aiuta a collocare queste carte è appunto il Nettuno con la Sirena nel Mare Tirreno: nella prima edizione sono posti una di fronte all'altra, quasi nell'atto di amoreggiare, mentre nelle edizioni successive, per motivi di censura, i due personaggi si affiancano in una posa più casta. La nostra carta presenta i due amanti del mare nella seconda postura, quella più composta; si tratta quindi di una edizione un poco posteriore alla prima che, con lievi modifiche, riproduce la prima versione ma che, rispetto a quella, gode di maggiore rarità. In ogni caso l'esemplare ha ancora il testo latino al verso; a questa versione ne seguono altre con ulteriori modifiche nel cartiglio e in alcuni altri particolari; o di dimensioni ridotte, come quella di Goffredo de Scaichi, datata 1619; altri esemplari di ridottisme dimensioni sono stati poi inseriti in piccoli atlanti dell'epoca. (Rif. Bibl.: Borri, carta n. 44, p. 50). Una mancanza all'angolo superiore sinistro, piega editoriale, buona conservazione.

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

      Venedig, Bolognino Zaltieri, 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 September 8, 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.

      Appresso Dominico de' Franceschi but Giovanni Battista Pasquali Venetia: Appresso Dominico de' Franceschi [but Giovanni Battista Pasquali], 1570. Hardcover. A Famous Counterfeit Palladio, and an Unlikely Survival in an 18th Century Paper Binding. 365 x 267 mm (14 3/8 x 10 1/2"). 2 p.l., 63, [1] pp.; [1] leaf (title), 76 pp.; [2] leaves, 42 pp., [2] leaves; [1] leaf (title), 131, [1] pp. AN ORIGINAL BINDING OF FLEXIBLE TEXTURED PAPER BOARDS BACKED WITH DAUBED PAPER, the volume contained in a modern wooden folding box covered in patterned paper and with a gilt-stamped cloth back. With engraved title pages and 218 ARCHITECTURAL ENGRAVINGS, 158 OF THEM FULL-PAGE. Fowler 232. Covers with large, faint water spots, lower cover with one-inch tear to fore edge, paper split over one spine band, general wear to spine and extremities, but the insubstantial original paper binding remarkably solid and certainly pleasing as an unlikely survival. Faint dampstains to lower third of leaves in final gathering and to inner margin of parts of books III and IV, occasional minor marginal stains, mild foxing, or thumbing, but an extremely bright and fresh copy with wide margins. This is a famous facsimile of an early edition of Palladio's widely influential work on architecture, offered here in a most intriguing binding. The brainchild of architectural historian Tommaso Temmanza and the British Consul in Venice, Joseph Smith (1673/4?-1770), it is universally recognized for its very accurate reproduction of the first printing of 1570, with especially fine engraved versions of the original woodcuts. A famous collector and connoisseur whose library of early printed books was a frequent stop on the Grand Tour of the Continent, Smith partnered with printer G. B. Pasquali to issue limited editions of fine replica copies of great works in his collection. Perhaps he did this out of an altruistic desire to make the masterpieces available to others, or perhaps his motivation had more to do with the financial reversals he suffered from bank failures in England. Goethe, a great admirer of Palladio, acquired a copy of Smith's edition on his Italian tour, describing it as "not actually the first edition, but a very conscientious copy, edited by an Englishman. One must concede to the English that they have always known how to appreciate what is good." He even visited Smith's grave on the Lido, noting "to him I owe my copy of Palladio, and I offered up a grateful prayer." The binding here is particularly noteworthy: to begin with, 18th century books bound in paper are not especially common, and it is next to impossible to imagine that an original paper binding like this one would survive intact on a visually engaging large folio architectural book that invites frequent use. For more on the contents and author, see the previous item.

Occasional marginal dampstaining. Overall a very good copy. "According to Professor A.W. Ward, the popularity of this book may be safely asserted to have greatly exceeded that of any other didactic poem- the species of literature to which it belongs- ever written in a European tongue." (Pforzheimer 41) "His [Barclay's] stay at Ottery was brief but notable for the production of his first major work, The Ship of Fools, the translation of Sebastian Brant's Narrenschiff (1494) into English verse. It was printed in London in December 1509 (when Barclay had left the college) by Richard Pynson, who published most of the author's subsequent works. Barclay embellished his translation with copious additions. He dedicated it to Thomas Cornish, warden of the college and suffragan bishop in the diocese of Exeter, who may have been responsible for bringing him to Ottery, and included complimentary references to Henry VIII, Sir John Kirkham of Paignton, Devon, and John Bishop, rector of St Paul's Church, Exeter. The work enabled him to mount attacks on a range of contemporary social groups and practices: attacks which accord with traditions of social criticism going back to the fourteenth century, while reflecting some of the concerns of humanist writers in the early sixteenth. His targets included fond parents and ungrateful children, inconstant and evil women, all who wore extravagant clothes, pluralist clergy, ignorant gentlemen, avaricious merchants, corrupt lawyers and physicians, riotous servants, and sturdy undeserving beggars. He also took the opportunity to settle some private scores. The secondary clerks of the college were singled out for their unwillingness to learn, the neighbouring parish clergy for ignorance and worldliness, and a group of named men of Ottery (who appear to have been ordinary laity) for being frauds and thieves. The work shows a sympathy with humanist Latin, and criticizes those attached to the medieval grammar of Alexander of Ville-Dieu rather than to the works of Priscian and the Renaissance grammarian Giovanni Sulpizio."

        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.

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 qualità della carta, l?ampiezza del margine, la forma de? caratteri, l?incisione delle tavole concorrono tutte insieme a rendere pregevole l?edizione, la quale è al certo superiore a tutte le altre di quel secolo che trattano di fortificazioni...» (Marini, Bibl. di fortificazione, pp.27-29).

      Carta geografica del nuovo mondo tratta dalla grande mappa del mondo del Mercator, 1569. Prima delle tre versioni usate da Ortelius nelle varie edizioni del suo atlante, quelle edite tra il 1570 ed il 1575. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due con le isole Azorre giustamente denominate ?Las Acores? invece di ?Canariae insule?. Coloritura coeva, leggere abrasioni, per il resto in ottime condizioni. The second 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. 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. It is beautifully embellished with a large strapwork title cartouche and lovely surrounding floral motifs. Copperplate, fine original colouring, generally good conditions.

        Russiae, Moscoviae et Tartariae descriptio.

      Incisione in rame, colorata d'epoca, mm 350x445, ricca di fascinose raffigurazioni di animali e scene di vita delle popolazioni indigene; tratta dall'originale disegnato dal mercante inglese Jenkinson della "English Muscovy Company", disegnato nel 1562. Egli viaggiò spesso in Russia e Bukhara verso la fine degli anni '50. Inserita dalla prima edizione in "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Ortels, latinizzato successivamente, fu appunto questa: prima d'allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione ed i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti "Atlanti Lafreriani" erano costituiti su richiesta raccogliendo carte di alcune zone, ignorando le altre. Ortelius riunì in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Questo esemplare proviene dall'ultima edizione latina del 1612; in bella coloritura antica, molto ben conservato sebbene su carta brunita, comune nelle ultime edizioni, ampi margini. Restauro ai margini est. della piega centrale. Van den Broecke, 162.
