        Colfo de Lodrin con parte Albania

      Venezia 1571 - 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. Map of the Balkan coast from Herceg-Novi in Montenegro to Durrës in Albania, marking Kotor. It was published in Camocio's 'Isole famose, porti fortezze e terre marittime sottoposte alla Ser.ma Sig.ria di Venezia', a description of the places claimed as subject to the Republic of Venice. 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. G.

        Le Cid Opéra en quatre Actes & dix Tableaux de M.M. Ad. D'Ennery, L. Gallet et Ed. Blau... Partition Chant & Piano... Académie Nationale De Musique. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: G. Hartmann [PN G.H. 1571.], 1885. Deluxe Limited Edition. Rare. The present copy "No. 11 Exemplaire réservé à Monsieur Léon Kerst." As Massenet's Manon was issued in a limited edition of 50 copies shortly before the publication of the present score, it seems likely that this edition of Le Cid was limited to approximately the same number of copies. The first performance of Le Cid confirmed Massenet's reputation as a successful opera composer, marking as it did his return to the Opéra for the first time since Le roi de Lahore eight years previously and coming a year after the double triumph of Manon by the Opéra Comique and the first performances in Paris of Hérodiade (Théâtre Italien). The De Reszke brothers Jean (tenor) and Edouard (bass) sang in Hérodiade and both were engaged for Le Cid... The loyalty of the De Reszke brothers and Pol Plançon (Count of Gormas) ensured considerable success for Le Cid both in France and America, and it achieved 150 performances at the Opéra by 1919." Rodney Milnes in Grove Music Online. Kerst, born in 1906, was a French music critic.. Large folio. Full teal blue cloth with black title label gilt to spine, all edges gilt, original publisher's dark brown decorative wrappers printed in red green, grey, and gold bound in. 1f.

        Il rapimento di Lucrezia

      1571 - Bulino, 1571, firmato e datato in lastra in baso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Tiziano. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. L’incisione deriva da un dipinto di Tiziano per Filippo II di Spagna, rispetto al quale risulta in controparte. Tiziano realizzò il dipinto nel 1571, quando aveva ormai superato gli ottant’anni. Nello stesso anno, Cornelius Cort ne fornisce la traduzione a bulino: la data 1571 si legge, insieme alla sua firma, sulla suoletta interna della pantofola di Lucrezia. L’oltraggio subito da Lucrezia, matrona romana, ad opera di Sesto Tarquinio, figlio di Tarquinio il Superbo, narrato da Livio, è l’episodio leggendario che determinerà la rivolta dei romani contro i Tarquini, la loro cacciata da Roma e il passaggio dalla monarchia alla repubblica. La donna, che preferì il suicidio al disonore, divenne poi simbolo di pudicizia e virtù coniugale. La scena rappresentata ha un tono drammatico: Lucrezia, nuda sul letto, con lo sguardo terrorizzato, tenta di difendersi dall’insano e violento desiderio di Sesto Tarquinio che le impone di tacere minacciandola con il pugnale, mentre sulla destra un uomo tira via la tenda per osservare. Nella concitazione, una pantofola scivola via dal piede di Lucrezia. Una delle prime stampe che Giacomo Gherardi pubbliherà, come erede dell’attività di Claudio Duchetti, sarà proprio una copia di questa incisione di Cort, datata 1586. Sia l’oltraggio che il suicidio di Lucrezia sono stati un tema molto diffuso nell’iconografia, soprattutto rinascimentale.Ne furono affascinati artisti come Luca Cranach il Vecchio, il Tintoretto, il Parmigianino, Guido Reni, e lo stesso Tiziano dedicò al tema interpretazioni diverse: la prima volta nel 1515, con Il suicidio di Lucrezia, che replicò più volte; nel 1570 circa con Tarquinio e Lucrezia, in cui compaiono solo Tarquinio e Lucrezia, che è in piedi e ancora vestita, e infine la versione del 1571, carica di un maggiore drammaticità. Tiziano ospitò l'incisore olandese Cornelius Cort a Venezia per circa due anni, autorizzandolo a incidere una serie di sue opere, tutte protette dal privilegio del senato di Venezia ottenuto nel 1567. Engraving, 1571, signed and dated at lower left. After Titian. Example of the first state of three. A Magnific impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in perfect conditions. The engraving comes from a painting by Titian for Philip II of Spain. Titian created the painting in 1571 , when he had already passed the age of eighty. In the same year, Cornelius Cort provides to the translation. The indignity suffered by Lucretia, a Roman matron, carried out by Sesto Tarquinio, son of Tarquinio il Superbo , narrated by Livy, is the legendary episode that will determine the revolt of the Romans against Tarquinio , their expulsion from Rome and the transition from monarchy to a republic. The woman, who preferred suicide to the dishonor, became a symbol of conjugal chastity and virtue. The scene has a dramatic tone: Lucretia, naked on the bed, looking terrified, tries to defend from the violent desire of Sesto Tarquinio which requires it to be quiet and threatened with a knife, while on the right a man pulls away the curtain to observe. In the excitement, a slipper slides off the foot of Lucretia. Whether the outrage that the suicide of Lucretia has been a very popular theme in the iconography, especially in the Renaissance. Titian hosted the Dutch engraver Cornelius Cort in Venice for about two years, authorizing it to affect a number of his works, all protected by the privilege of the senate of Venice obtained in 1567.

      Venezia 1571 - Anonima pianta prospettica della città basata sul modello del Maestro ICA edito da Domenico de Franceschi nel 1565. In realtà si tratta di una replica di riduzioni di qeusto modello, pubblicate a Venezia da Paolo Forlani, Ferrando e Donato Bertelli e anche G. F. Camocio. Se tutte queste piante citate sono note alle bibliografie, questa pianta è invece sconosciuta ai principali repertori cartografici sulla città (Schulz, Cassini, Romanelli-Biadene e Moretto). Ne abbiamo censito un esemplare nell'esemplare del "Isole che son da Venetia nella Dalmatia et per tutto l’arcipelago fino a Costantinopoli" conservato alla Stanford University. Incisione in rame, lievi pieghe di carta, con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Della massima rarità. Non descritta. Dimensioni 260 190mm

        Alsatia Landgraviatus, cum Suntgoia et Brisgoia

      Amsterdam - Map. Copperplate engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 15.5 x 31". Sheet measures 22 x 33" This map of the historic French region of Alsace focuses on the lower Rhine River. Oriented with north to the right, the map describes a fertile area of France that, due to the many tributaries of the river, has historically been well-known for its wine. Perhaps the lushness of the region can account for the map's, particularly risqué title cartouche, which features two scantily clad women flanking the region's seal. In fact, this image was so indecorous that it led one viewer--perhaps a monk--to censor out the women with black gouache. Professional cleaning, restoration, and enhancement has brought the map back to its intended appearance. Wide top and bottom margins with some tears not affecting the image. Two sheets joined, as issued, with French text on verso. Willem Blaeu (1571-1638) was a prolific Dutch mapmaker who started one of the most famous map publishing firms of the 17th century. It was at this time that the Dutch controlled the map trade, and their ornate and beautiful maps had immense popularity. Blaeu was instrumental in driving this dominance in his lifetime, and this legacy was continued by his sons. Expert repair to center fold and lower left corner chipped. Priced as is.

Henrique, com a legenda «HENRICVS CARDINALIS, INFANS PORTVGALIAE, LEGATVS A LATERE»]. OLYSIPPONE. Apud Antonium Gondisaluu[m] Typographum. Anno Domini M. D. Lxxi. [1571]. CVM PRIVILEGIO REGIO. In fólio (aliás gr. 8º, de 29x19,5 cm) com 480 [I] pags. Encadernação recente em inteira de pele com ferros rolados a ouro na lombada e em esquadria nas pastas. Primeira edição extremamente rara. Exemplar com falta de 1 fólio volante final (Hh) respeitante às autorizações (datadas de 1572 segundo o exemplar BNP RES 730 A) e a erratas tipograficas. Apresenta leves picos de traça marginais prefeitamente restauraveis, leves vestígios de humidade desvanecidos pelo tempo, pequenas manchas de tinta ferrogálica coevas causadas pelo uso do livro por copistas, pequenas falhas marginais de papel restauradas na folha de rosto e nos primeiros fólios sem perda de texto. Apresenta títulos de posse da época sobre a folha de rosto e no cólofon; adição de dois fólios manuscritos no século dezoito com um louvor ao autor - o Bispo Jerónimo Osório - onde se menciona o uso deste exemplar no Sameiro, por Frei Manuel Osório Cabral, encontrando-se estes fólios subscritos por Leonardo Pereira; título de posse da época sobre a folha de rosto: ?De Frei M[anu]el Os[o]r[io] Cabral? Obra fundamental para o conhecimento do período que precede os primeiros Descobrimentos Portugueses, (muito importantes geo-estrategicamente, mas que do ponto de vista economico foram relativamente pouco fructosos para a coroa), durante o qual Portugal tomou o dominio absoluto dos mares, por via comercial e militar, avassalando as nações do Oriente e do Extremo Oriente e erguendo um fabuloso empório à escala mundial. Tendo como base uma agil capacidade negocial de alianças politicas, conjugada com uma eficaz e cirúrgica utilização do seu poder militar, tanto naval, como de fortificação de praças, sempre apoiados por uma técnica avançada na utilização da artilharia. A falta do fólio volante final (Hh) neste exemplar, contendo o previlegio régio de D. Sebastião datado de Setembro 1572, seguido pelas erratas, levanta uma pertinente questão bibliográfica. Pensamos que muito possivelmente o fólio em questão nunca esteve presente neste exemplar e, provavelmente, não fez parte originalmente do corpo da impressão de 1571. Este fólio volante terá sido introduzido pelo impressor posteriormente. A colaborar esta nossa ideia existem vários indícios tipograficos: A) O facto de o impressor ter introduzido este fólio volante no fim da obra (último fólio), sendo que normalmente as licenças vêm depois da folha de rosto. B) A data do previlégio régio neste fólio ser posterior (Setembro de 1572) á data da folha de rosto da obra datada de 1571. C) As erratas ao texto da obra, presentes no verso do fólio volante Hh, apenas possiveis de executar com a totalidade dos cadernos já impressos, confimam-nos que as licenças foram emitidas e impressas depois da execução tipografica. D) Os dois últimos cadernos respectivamente Ff e Gg, contêm oito fólios de impressão numerados e com registo sequencial. O fólio volante final inumerado, em falta, apresenta o registo Hh e não faz parte de qualquer caderno. Tudo isto sugere que este fólio volante terá sido introduzido, um ano após a conclusão da impressão do corpo da obra. No verso da folha de rosto consta uma licença inquisitorial de Fr. Bartolomeu Ferreira (o famoso censor dos Lusiadas) dada por ordem do Cardeal principe D. Henrique, em 8 de Setembro do ano de 1571. O autor que foi tutor e mestre do rei D. Sebastião, dedicou a obra ao Cardeal D. Henrique, Inquisidor-mor do reino, ex-Regente e Conselheiro Régio, que encomendou a crónica de D. Manuel I ao Bispo de Silves e encarregou a sua censura a Bartolomeu Ferreira, e este aprovou a impressão. Em nosso entender é possivel que tenha sido necessário ou mes

        Astronomia nova sev physica coelestis, tradita commentariis de motibus stellae Martis, ex observationibus G.V. Tychonis Brahe.... [Faksimile].

      Kl.2, 1 Bl., 337 S., zahlr. Textabb., 1 Faltkarte,, OLdr. mit Rückenschild, Min. gebrauchspurig. Kepler (1571-1630) erbte von Tycho Brahe eine Fülle von sehr genauen Datenreihen über die Positionen der Planeten. Die Schwierigkeit war, darin einen Sinn zu erkennen, denn wie das nebenstehende Bild beispielhaft zeigt, sieht es so aus, als würden manche Planeten Schleifen am Himmel vollführen. Das liegt daran, dass die Umlaufbewegungen der anderen Planeten von einer Erde aus betrachtet werden, die selbst die Sonne umkreist.Kepler konzentrierte sich darauf, die Marsbahn zu verstehen, doch zunächst musste er die Bewegung der Erde genau kennen. Dafür brauchte er eine Vermessungslinie. Er benutzte Mars und Sonne als Basislinie, ohne die genaue Umlaufbahn des Mars zu kennen. Auf diese Weise wurden die Positionen der Erde berechnet und von diesen der Umlauf des Mars. So konnte er seine Planetengesetze ohne Kenntnis der genauen Abstände der Planeten von der Sonne ableiten, weil seine geometrische Analyse nur das Verhältnis ihrer Abstände benötigte.Im Gegensatz zu Brahe glaubte Kepler an das heliozentrische System. Ausgehend von diesem Gerüst verbrachte er zwanzig Jahre mit sorgfältigen Versuchen und Überprüfungen, um eine mathematische Beschreibung der Planetenbewegungen zu finden, die zu den beobachteten Daten passt. Nach etwa zehn Jahren fand er die ersten beiden der drei Planetengesetze.Zweites Keplersches GesetzAls Nachfolger Brahes erhielt Kepler vollen Zugang zu dessen Aufzeichnungen. Im Jahr 1600 war das Werk des englischen Arztes William Gilbert De Magnete, Magneticisque Corporibus, et de Magno Magnete Tellure ("Über den Magneten, Magnetische Körper und den großen Magneten Erde") erschienen, dessen Theorien zur magnetischen Anziehung Kepler sofort akzeptierte. Auf diese Weise gelangte er zu der Auffassung, die Sonne übe eine in die Ferne wirkende Kraft aus, die mit wachsender Entfernung abnehme und die Planeten auf ihren Umlaufbahnen halte, die Anima motrix. Dies war zu seiner Zeit ebenso spekulativ wie die Vermutung, zwischen den Bahnen der Himmelskörper und den platonischen Körpern bestehe ein innerer Zusammenhang. Der Gedanke der Fernwirkungskraft zusammen mit der Auswertung der Brahe-Beobachtungen führte Kepler zu der Entdeckung, dass die Bahn des Mars kein Kreis, sondern eine Ellipse ist. Dies ist nicht offensichtlich, da die Ellipsenbahnen der großen Planeten fast kreisförmig verlaufen. Kepler bemerkte auch, dass die Ellipse so im Raum angeordnet ist, dass einer ihrer Brennpunkte stets mit der Sonne zusammenfällt (erstes Keplersches Gesetz). Der zweite von ihm formulierte Satz besagt, dass eine von der Sonne zu einem Planeten gezogene Strecke in gleichen Zeiträumen gleiche Flächen überstreicht. Je weiter also ein Planet von der Sonne entfernt ist, desto langsamer bewegt er sich (zweites Keplersches Gesetz). Diese beiden Gesetze veröffentlichte er im 1609 erschienenen Werk Astronomia Nova (Neue Astronomie) bei Gotthard Vögelin in Frankfurt am Main.

Leone da Modena (Jehuda Arje di Modena, auch Leo Mutinensis, Judah Arye) jüdisch und profanwissenschaftlich gebildeter, äußerst eloquenter Autor, Dichter, Lehrer und (von Juden und Christen) gesuchter Prediger, venezianischer Rabbiner, Übersetzer, Verfasser einer Autobiographie und zahlreicher Schriften verschiedensten Inhalts und gilt als eine der kompliziertesten und undurchsichtigsten Persönlichkeiten der jüdisch-italienischen Kultur seiner Zeit. Leone führte ein unruhiges Leben: Er nahm einen Beruf nach dem anderen auf und wurde ein besessener Spieler, was ihn und seine Familie oft in finanzielle Bedrängnis brachte. Sein Lieblingssohn Mordechai starb im November 1617 bei alchimistischen Experimenten, in deren Folge ihn sein Vater tödlich vergiftet hatte. Das traf Leone Modena schwer, er unterzog sein bisheriges Leben einer strengen Selbstprüfung, deren Frucht die äußerst widersprüchliche Autobiographie chajje Jehuda ist, eine offen-ehrliche Abrechnung, in der er sich als gescheiterte Existenz bekennt und mit der er in seiner Zeit einzigartig dasteht.

A very good tight copy. Pedro Mexía (1497 - 1551) was a Spanish Renaissance writer, humanist and historian born in Seville. He studied humanities and law at Seville and Salamanca universities. He maintained correspondence with Erasmus of Rotterdam, Luis Vives and Juan Gines de Sepulveda. In 1548, he was appointed official chronicler of the court of Emperor Charles V. This is his major work "Silva de varia lección" first published in Seville in 1540. It proved extremely popular and was translated into French, Italian and English in the sixteenth century. It is an encyclopedic miscellany or mixture of subjects of interest across the diverse repertoire of humanistic knowledge of the time, taking material from many classical writers including Aulus Gellius, Ateneo, Macrobius, Valerius Maximus, Polidoro Virgilio, Plutarch and the Natural History of Pliny the Elder.

        Harmonices Mundi, Libri V. [Faksimile].

      4, 5 Bl., 255 S., zahlr. Textabb., OLdr. mit Rückenschild, Min. gebrauchsspurig. Nach intensivem Studium der Daten zur Umlaufbahn des Mars entdeckte Kepler (1571-1630) am 15. Mai 1618 das dritte der nach ihm benannten Gesetze, welches er in dem im Jahr 1619 veröffentlichten Werk Harmonices mundi libri V ("Fünf Bücher zur Harmonik der Welt") erläuterte. Danach ist das Verhältnis des Quadrats der Umlaufzeit T displaystyle T T eines Planeten zur dritten Potenz der großen Halbachse d displaystyle d d seiner Bahnellipse für alle Planeten dasselbe: T 2 / d 3 displaystyle T2/d3 T2 / d3 ist für alle Planeten gleich. Dies ist äquivalent zum dritten Keplerschen Gesetz.Kepler sprach in diesem Werk von einem harmonischen Gesetz. Er glaubte, dass es eine musikalische Harmonie enthülle, die der Schöpfer im Sonnensystem verewige. "Ich fühle mich von einer unaussprechlichen Verzückung ergriffen ob des göttlichen Schauspiels der himmlischen Harmonie. Denn wir sehen hier, wie Gott gleich einem menschlichen Baumeister, der Ordnung und Regel gemäß, an die Grundlegung der Welt herangetreten ist." Keplers Anschauungen entsprachen dem, was heute als anthropisches Prinzip bezeichnet wird. In einem weiteren Manuskript beschrieb er eine Zusammenstellung von Übereinstimmungen zwischen der Bibel und wissenschaftlichen Sachverhalten.

        Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque.

      Venice: Giunta, 1571. First edition, and a fine copy in a contemporary binding, of this very rare work which coined the phrase "circulation of the blood" (circulatio sanguinis, f. 111v) and provided the theoretical basis for Harvey's experimental and quantitative treatment in De motu cordis (1628). "Cesalpino preceded Harvey in the discovery of the concept of the circulation, and Harvey must have known of his ideas" (Garrison-Morton). "Cesalpino's most important medical studies concern the anatomy and physiology of the movement of the blood. He gave a good description of the cardiac valves and of the pulmonary vessels connected to the heart, as well as of the minor blood circulation; he also recognized that the heart is the center of the circulation of the blood and accepted the existence of the traditional synanastomoses of the arteries with the veins. He did not, however, discover the major circulation (first demonstrated in 1628 by William Harvey)" (DSB). "No-one who reads Cesalpino impartially can deny the eminent part that he played in the discovery of the circulation of the blood" (Castiglioni, p. 438). ABPC/RBH lists only three other copies in contemporary bindings sold at auction in the last 60 years: Norman copy, Christie's New York, March 18, 1998, lot 61, $36,800 ("title page stained at edges and with removed stamp"); Swann, May 24, 2001, lot 50, $33,350 ("wormholes through front cover & blank outer margin of opening leaves, title page stamped"); Friedman copy, Sotheby's New York, November 16, 2001, lot 29, $110,000 ("repaired tear to title page, spine head repaired, C4,5 guarded"). In their description of the Friedman copy, Sotheby's noted that "the only copy to surface at Anglo-American auctions in the past century was that of Haskell F. Norman." "In Quaestio IIII (ff. 107-112) of his Peripatetic problems, Cesalpino first made the critical point, repeated in his later works, that blood flows in a perpetual movement into the heart from the veins and from the heart to the arteries. This statement, as Pagel has noted, marked "a breakaway from Galen and a stepping-stone for Harvey" (p. 171); Cesalpino "replaced [Galen's doctrine] by the more sophisticated idea of arterio-venous plexuses in which the blood is conveyed to the organs by the arteries, although part of it comes from the veins. With this Cesalpinus seems to have taken a progressive step in the direction of the truth -- however far this is still removed from Harvey's idea of the closed arterio-venous circle" (p. 187). "Cesalpino examined contemporary medical and anatomical research in the light of Aristotelian rather than Galenic philosophy (the "Peripatetic" in this work's title alludes to Aristotle's Peripatetic school). His theory of the circulatio sanguinis as a rhythmic to-and-fro movement was based on the Aristotelian model of hot evaporating matter driven upward and then returning to its source after cooling; it emphasized both the continuity and circularity of the cardiovascular system and its essentially automatic, repeating character. Harvey used the same Aristotelian model in De motu cordis -- as a student at the Aristotelian University of Padua, Harvey could hardly have escaped noticing Cesalpino's work, which was very popular with students in Italy and Germany" (Norman). "In 1571, Andrea Cesalpino (1524-1603), with whose medical works Harvey must have also been acquainted, published Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque, a systematic book on the basis of the Aristotelian philosophical framework. In it, he described quite accurately the heart valves and the pulmonary vessels connected to the heart, as well as the pulmonary circulation. Although Cesalpino had not attained a thorough knowledge, founded on anatomical research, of the entire course of the blood, he speculated that the heart is the center of the circulatio sanguinis (blood circulation), a term that he coined, and specified that blood flows in a perpetual movement into the heart from the veins and from the heart to the arteries. He examined experimentally the difference between the blood flow in veins and that in arteries, and he deduced the presence of vasa in capillamenta resoluta, the invisible hair-like "capillaries," as he was the first to name them, between the two vascular networks; he did, however, acknowledge that these connections were "what the Greeks call anastomoses". "Cesalpino operated on living animals, exposed the pulsating arteries and accompanying veins, and investigated what ensued when he cut off the flow through them. He ascertained that when he ligated an artery, it bulged on the cardiac side, implying flow toward the periphery; in contrast, when he ligated a vein, the bulge ensued on the peripheral side, implying flow toward the heart. Moreover, in Quaestio IV of the Peripatetic Problems, the pulmonary circulation is identified unambiguously, although its function is considered to be one of cooling. In paragraph 11, Cesalpino states: "From the contact with cold air or water during its passage (through lungs or gills), nature has provided a cooling process. The lung, then, draws warm blood through the vein-like artery [vena arterialis, i.e., pulmonary artery] from the right ventricle of the heart and returns it through anastomoses to the arteria venosa [pulmonary vein(s)], which enters the left heart ... Dissection corroborates this 'circulatio sanguinis' from the right ventricle of the heart through the lungs and to the left ventricle of the same. For, there are two vessels which connect into the right ventricle and two into the left. Of these two, one introduces blood only, while the other conducts it out with its valves constituted for that purpose. The vessel which leads in is the great vein on the right which is called the vena cava. The one on the left, leading in from the lung, is small, and has a single coat like other veins. The vessel leading out on the left is the great artery and is called the arteria aorta; the vessel on the right is small, however, and leads to the lungs, and has two coats like other arteries." "The preceding excerpt bears upon the question of Cesalpino's place in history and demonstrates that he had probably penetrated into the enigma of the Circulation further than any other physiologist before Harvey--in Italy, he is regarded as the real discoverer. However, it is highly unlikely that this is a valid allegation. Consider the following: De Venarum Ostiolis, the treatise of the illustrious teacher of Harvey, Fabricius of Aquapendente, was published in 1603, more than 30 years after Cesalpino's own Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque, and a year after Harvey left Padua. It provides undeniable direct evidence of Fabricius's and indirect consequential evidence of Cesalpino's total ignorance of the simple hydraulics of blood in the systemic loop. "In it, Fabricius writes that the purpose of the valves in the veins was not to ensure the unidirectional flow to the right heart, but to prevent over-distension of the veins by blood passing through the venous trunks to their tributaries, and also to retard the progress of the venous current so as to afford each part, or organ, time to procure its proper nutriment (in agreement with the Galenic concept). Fabricius also noted that arteries do not need valves because they are not liable to over-distension, given the strength and thickness of their coats. Neither are valves needed to retard the blood stream, because in the arteries there is perpetual flux and reflux of blood (quod sanguinis fluxus refluxusque in arteriis perpetuo fiat). Such, then, was the state of understanding of the systemic loop taught by Harvey's teacher more than 30 years after the publication of Cesalpino's Peripateticarum Quaestionum Libri Quinque. "The understanding as to the function of the valves was ... that they were present to sustain the column of venous blood and thus prevent blood from stagnating at the extremities of the limbs with a consequent unequal distribution of nutriment--a view that was the only conceivable one without the complete refutation of the then current and universally accepted Galenic notions on the movements of the blood" (Pasipoularides). "Cesalpino (1519-1603) studied philosophy and medicine at Pisa, where he received the doctorate in 1551. Four years later he succeeded his teacher Luca Ghini as professor of medicine and director of the botanical garden at Pisa. In 1592 he was called to Rome as physician to Pope Clement VIII and, simultaneously, professor at the Sapienza, where he taught until his death" (DSB). Cesalpino is perhaps best known as a "botanist who sought a philosophical and theoretical approach to plant classification based on unified and coherent principles rather than on alphabetical sequence or medicinal properties. He helped establish botany as an independent science" (Britannica).

Ils sont chacun accompagnés de quelques vers, des huitains, de Georgette de Montenay. « Dessinée et gravée à l'eau-forte par Woeiriot, dont c'est l'un des meilleurs travaux, l'illustration montre des monuments, des fleurs et des feuillages, etc ; on y voit également des meubles, des vases et des ustensiles, rendus avec exactitude et charme, et des motifs emblématiques utilisés à plusieurs reprises dans des mises en scène variées comme la grande sphère ou le coeur. Il y a des figurations peu courantes : ainsi au trente-septième emblème, un « phantastiq », tournant le dos à une table chargée de victuailles, préfère contempler sur un mur la représentation peinte de celles-ci. » (Grands siècles & grandes images. Collection Roger Paultre de livres illustrés ). Pierre Woeiriot de Bouzey (1532-1596) est issu d'une grande famille d'orfèvres lorrains. Son grand père Pierre I, orfèvre et sculpteur, travailla au service du duc de Lorraine René II. Son père, Jacquemin de Woeiriot, serait un des auteurs des illustrations de l'ouvrage de perspective de Jean Pélerin dit le Viator. Pierre de Woeiriot est né à Neufchâteau vers 1531-1532. Il fut d'abord orfèvre comme les membres de sa famille puis se consacra à la gravure vers 1555 à la suite de voyages en Italie. Il s'arrêta à Lyon et découvrit le rayonnement de l'estampe lyonnaise. Installé à Nancy, il fera de très nombreux voyages à Lyon jusqu'en 1572. Il a gravé d'abord des modèles d'orfèvrerie puis des portraits et des illustrations. Son style, très personnel, se rapproche de celui de l'École de Fontainebleau mais aussi du style des burinistes lyonnais de cette époque comme Georges Reverdy ou le maître CC. (Exposition Renaissance à Nancy). Cet exemplaire, qui provient de la bibliothèque de Roger Paultre, contient une épreuve supplémentaire de l'emblème 18, d'un état différent, sans texte. On trouve parfois cette gravure collée sur l'emblème 18. Elle est reproduite dans l'ouvrage de Paultre, Les images du livre, 1991, p. 99. Exemplaire sans le portrait que l'on trouve dans quelques exemplaires et qui est daté de 1567. Celui de la collection Fairfax Murray, aujourd'hui à Harvard, provient clairement d'une autre édition (« evidently from an other edition ») dont on ne connait à ce jour aucun exemplaire. Baudrier ne décrit pas ce portrait. Provenances - Victor Masséna (1836-1910), Duc de Rivoli and Prince d'Essling, avec son supra-libris doré à la devise « Victor et Fidelis ». Petit-fils du maréchal d'Empire, il avait construit une exceptionnelle bibliothèque d'incunables et d'éditions illustrées du XVIe siècle.- Roger Paultre, avec son exlibris, grand collectionneur de livres d'emblèmes ; catalogue de sa vente (1993) N° 199. Très bel exemplaire, aux provenances prestigieuses.***** First known edition of the the first Protestant emblem volume.

        DON JUAN DE AUSTRIA - BATTLE OF LEPANTO: IOHANNES DE AUSTRIAE CAROLI I IMPERATORI FILIUS AETATIS SUE XXV. 1571.

      [Prob Venice] 1571 - Etching (Very Good, hardly noticeable age-toned, stripe of paper on the back in the margin), 22 x 15,5 cm (8.6 x 6.1 inches). A rare portrait of the military leader Don Juan de Austria, with scenes of the Battle of Lepanto below. 463 ships and almost 150.000 men were involved in this battle, where the Ottoman army was defeated. This rare etching shows a portrait of Don Juan de Austria from a profile surrounded by his coat of arms (above), Venetian coat of arms (left), Papal coat of arms (right), battle trophies and Turkish insignia, and small scenes from the sea battle of Lepanto below. Don Juan de Austria (John of Austria, 1547 – 1578) was an illegitimate son of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and a military leader in the service of his half-brother, King Philip II of Spain. On October 7 1571 he lead a fleet of the Holy League, a coalition of European Catholic maritime states arranged by Pope Pius V, in a sea ballet against an Ottoman fleet. This legendary battle, which took place by Lepanto, in Gulf of Patras, in Ionian Sea, was crucial to stop the Ottoman Empire from expanding further along the European side of the Mediterranean. The battle involved 212 ships on the side of the Holy league, sponsored mostly be the Spanish Empire, and 251 ships on the Ottoman side. Almost 150,000 soldiers and sailors all together fought on both sides. The Ottoman army was defeated and 15,000 soldiers were killed, 3,500 wounded or captured, 137 ships were captured and 50 ships sunk. The Holy League had suffered around 7,500 or soldiers, sailors and rowers dead, but freed about 12,000 Christian prisoners. This separately published engraving was probably made in Venice in the year of the battle. We could not find any references to this engraving in contemporary literature nor any examples in the institutions worldwide. The only other copy of the engraving we could trace, is mentioned as a part of a private collection in 1825, and marked as work by an anonymous Italian engraver (Verzeichnis der seltenen Kunst-Sammlungen . des K. Preuß. Hauptmanns Herrn Hans Albrecht von Derschau, Nürnberg 1825, p. 233. 2199).

        [Strabonos geographikon bibloi hepta kai deka]. Strabonis rerum geographicarum libri septemdecim. Basel, Heinrich Petri, (August) 1571.

      1571. Folio (230 x 327 mm). (116), 977, (3) pp. Printed in Greek and Latin parallel columns throughout. With 27 double-page woodcut maps (3 repeats), 7 smaller maps in the text, woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf, and several initials. Contemp. blindstamped leather. First printing of this edition, the first illustrated Strabo. Greek and Latin parallel text by Wilhelm Xylander (whose learned notes are appended to each book); a Latin-only edition was published at Basel the same year. Except for the world maps and the eighth map of Asia with its Scythian monsters, now deemed to fantastic for a scientific publication, this includes all the 'old' Ptolemaic maps from Sebastian Münster's Ptolemy editions published by Petri, newly arranged and distributed throughout the work within the respective chapters (cf. Hieronymus, p. 428). - Strabo had visited Egypt and sailed up the Nile in 25 BC. Even in the introductory chapters, the author provides important details on the Arabian Peninsula: "Adjoining the Ethiopians, a needy and nomad race, is Arabia: one part of which is distinguished above all other lands by the title of Felix [i.e., Hedjaz and Nejd-ed-Ared], and the other, though not dignified by that name, is both generally believed and also said to be pre-eminently blessed. Though Homer knew of Arabia Felix, at that time it was by no means wealthy, but a wild country, the inhabitants of which dwelt for the most part in tents. It is only a small district which produces the aromatics from which the whole territory afterwards received its name, owing to the rarity of the commodity amongst us, and the value set upon it. That the Arabians are now flourishing and wealthy is due to their vast and extended trade" (bk. 1, p. 36f.); "Arabia Felix is bounded by the entire Arabian and Persian Gulfs, together with all the country of the tent-dwellers and the Sheikh-governed tribes. [...] Beside the ocean the country is tolerably fitted for habitation of man, but not so the centre of the country: this for the most part is barren, rugged sand desert. The same applies to the country of the Troglodytic Arabians and the part occupied by the fish-eating tribes" (bk. 2, p. 131f.) Furthermore, books 15 and 16 are devoted entirely to the Orient (bk. 16 is on Arabia in particular), while the final book 17 discusses Egypt and Libya. - Among the fine roll-tools decorating this binding (dated 1580 and monogrammed "MHF") is a well-preserved Bible roll dated 1550. Contemp. note on the author on front pastedown. Provenance: near-contemporary ownership "Sum ex libris Philippi Scheele Pomerani" on title page; by descent to his nephew (?) Johann Scheele (d. 1641), landlord of Neklade near Bergen on Rügen island and known for his large library, with his early 17th century ownerships "Jean Scheele", "Ex bibliotheca Jeans Scheelen", and "Johan Scheelen mp". Some browning and brownstaining due to paper; slight waterstaining; occasional Greek marginalia. Slight edge defects to first few leaves. VD 16, S 9345. Adams S 1907. BM-STC German 834.

        Insulae Americanae in Oceano Septentrionali

      Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ( - 1638 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: 1630 1571 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Very good; size in cm : 38,5 x 52,5 - description: map of the Caribbean Islands - Vita of the artist: "Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who worked elsewhere, with over 15 printing presses running simultaneously, and in 1667 a second press was acquired at Gravenstraat. At the same time as producing the Atlas Maior, Blaeu was also publishing town plans of Italy, maps for globes, and other volumes. At its peak the Blaeu press managed to produce over 1 million impressions from 1,000 copper plates within four years."
