      Ernst Vögelin (Druck: Hans Rhambaw), Leipzig 1571 - Folio (34 x 21,5 cm). Mit zahlr. teils figürl. Initialen. Titel in Rot u. Schwarz. 6 nn., 255 numer., 3 nn. Bl. Schweinsldr. d. Zt. auf 4 Bünden, halb über die Deckel gezogen m. Rollenstempel-Prägung, Überzugspapier aus einer alten Pgt.-Handschrift in Schwarz, Rot, Blau. Rotschnitt. VD16 D 753. - Seltene erste Ausgabe von 1571 (kein Ex im JbdAPr 1950ff.), der ein Jahr später eine Titelauflage folgte. - Melchior Kling, 1504-1571, Kanonist, " ist ein Beispiel für den Bildungsaufstieg im 16. Jh. ebenso wie für die aus dem Kontinuitäts- und Vermittlungsgedanken der Reformationsjuristen erwachsenen politischen Möglichkeiten und Komplikationen." (NDB 12,76-77). - "Seiner nach langer Vorarbeit 1572 [recte 1571, wie vorliegendes Ex. zeigt] endlich erschienenen systematischen Bearbeitung des Sachsenspiegel-Landrechts blieb eine breitere Beachtung verwehrt, da noch im selben Jahr die kurfürstlich-sächsischen Konstitutionen den Sachsenspiegel als primäre Rechtsquelle ablösten. Entsprechend bis heute unbeachtet blieb sein Werk auch - zu Unrecht - in der sich seit dem 19. Jahrhundert entwickelnden Rechtsbuchforschung, die den Sachsenspiegel und die ihm verwandten Quellen nicht mehr aus primär juristischem, sondern vielmehr historischem Interesse in den Blick nahm." (BBK XXIV,940f.). - 2 Bl. fehlen und sind durch Kopien ersetzt. Einband etw. berieben u. angeschmutzt. 3 Ecken nachträglich m. Pgt. verstärkt. Innendeckel m. hs. Eintrag (Widmung v. Medem (?) an D.

        Tine insula, e citte antiqua posta nella Arcipelago

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio,, 1571 - Zacharakis, C. G.: A Catalogue of printed Maps of Greece, 3rd edition, #790/516. - Eine sehr seltene, frühe Ansicht von Tinos, einer Kykladen Insel im Ägäischen Meer, aus Camocios Isole Famose. Gezeigt ist die Insel belagert von mehreren Kriegsschiffen. Dieses Blatt ist vom ersten Zustand der Platte gedruckt, ohne die Zahl in der unteren rechten Ecke und ist äußerst selten auf dem Markt zu finden. Zu den begehrtesten kartographischen Arbeiten zählen die Italienischen Atlanten des 16. Jahrhunderts. Neben den sogenannten Lafreri Atlanten, einer individuellen Zusammenstellung von Karten verschiedener Größen, entstanden bei den Venezianischen Verlegern Camocio und Bertelli auch einige Atlanten mit Karten von einheitlicher Größe und Machart. Einer der wichtigsten dieser Atlanten, ist der erstmals 1566 von Camocio herausgegebene Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime, eine Zusammenstellung von Karten der Gebiete, welche unter Einfluss der Venezianer standen. Dargestellt wird die Situation während der Belagerung Wiens 1566, sowie die Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Venezianern und Türken im Mittelmeer während der Jahre 1570-1573. Beinhaltet sind vornehmlich Karten der Mittelmeer Küsten, die wichtigsten Inseln, sowie Stadtansichten. Der Atlas wurde zwischen 1566 und 1574 von Camocio ohne Titel herausgegeben, ab 1575 erschien die Kartensammlung, gedruckt von den original Platten, bei Donato Bertelli. - Mit original breiten Rändern, selten, da Blätter aus Camocios Isole Famose zumeist am und in den Plattenrand beschnitten sind. Etwas fingerfleckig im Rand. Sehr gutes Exemplar in kräftigem Abdruck. - A very rare, early view of Tinos, an island of the Cyclades in the Aegean Sea from Camocio's Isole Famose. Showing the island sieged by battle ships. This copy is printed from the first state of the plate, without the number in the lower right corner. The Italian atlases of the 16th Century are among the much sought after cartographic rarities. Besides the so-called Lafreri atlases, a compilation of individual maps of various sizes, the Venetian publishers Camocio and Bertelli issued a few atlases with maps of uniform size and style. Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime is one of the most important of these atlases, issued first by Camocio in 1566. It comprises a collection of maps of the areas under the influence of the Venetians. Shown is the situation during the siege of Vienna in 1566, and the battle between the Venetians and Turks in the Mediterranean during the years 1570-1573. Mainly included are maps of the Mediterranean coasts, the main islands, and city views. The atlas was published between 1566 and 1574 by Camocio without a title, after 1575 it was issued by Donato Bertelli with a printed title, also printed from the original plates. - With original wide margin, which is rare, since sheets from Camocio's Isole Famose often cut along or within the plate marks. Some soiling in lower right margin. A very good copy with a strong impression.

        De l'Heur et malheur de mariage, ensemble les loix connubiales de Plutarque, traduictes en françois, par Jehan de Marconville

      pour Jean Dallier, Paris 1571 - CURIOUS WORK ON THE PROS AND CONS OF MARRIAGE 8vo. ff. (viii) 83 (i). Roman letter, italic side notes. Woodcut publishers' device on title-page, floriated woodcut initials and head-pieces, book plate of Charles V. D. Elst on pastedown. Light age yellowing. A very good copy in C19 French crushed red morocco ‘Jansenist’, signed Hardy-Menil, spine with raised bands, gilt title, edges with double gilt rule, inner dentelles richly gilt, a.e.g., joints slightly crushed at head. Rare second edition of this curious work on the pros and cons of marriage, first published in Paris in 1564, concurrently with another work examining the good and evil of Women; both are mentioned in the privilege given to Jean Dallier at the end of this book and were probably complementary. Marconville published many works which presented arguments, for and against, in a tradition derived from Erasmus, and prefiguring Montaigne’s Essais. The present work addresses such things as adultery, marriage ceremonies both christian and pagan, degrees of consanguinity, how to punish a wife, jealousy and the unhappiness caused by being married to a "Mauvais Femme". "Some French Catholics who began cautiously endorsing marriage were Jean Bouchet, Jean de Marconville and Francois de Billon. Jean de Marconville was a Catholic who sought the unity of the Church, but objected to the use of force against the Protestants. He addressed the issue of marriage in his ‘De l'Heur et malheur de mariage’ , published in 1564. The stated premise was that men and women were meant to be married. He advocated marriage as security ‘ . against the disordered affections of the flesh and against the vices of incontinence and sensuality.’" Yvonne Petry. ‘Gender, Kabbalah, and the Reformation.’ This was taken in part and reworked from a French translation of Mexia’s ‘Diverses Lecons’ by Claude Gruget. "Marconville conceals Mexia as a source, juggles the order of Mexia’s three linked chapters on marriage and leaves his reader with a false impression of his source material. Marconville borrowed and compiled from Mexia’s ‘Diverses Lecons’, but more importantly he changed the meaning and context of the examples. Marconville transformed Mexia’s writings on variety and diversity into an argument for monogamous Christian marriage. . Marconville’s work . echoes Mexia and copies his phrases, but alters them slightly to emphasise the more formal requirements of the public ceremonies required for a legitimate marriage. For Mexia, the consent alone (seul consentment) of the couple suffices, helped along by ceremonies. For Marconville a more public (solonnel) arrangement is required to demonstrate this consent that he emphasises as ‘mutual’. Lyndan Warner ‘The Ideas of Man and Woman in Renaissance France: Print, Rhetoric, and Law’ Very little is known of Marconville's life. A country gentleman born about 1540, he was a fairly prolific writer in the popular philosophical vein and a friend of a number of better known literary contemporaries such as Thevet and Belleforest. Hofer (NBG) describes his works on women as "recherchés pour leur singularité". This Edn. not in BM STC Fr. Adams M-551. Brunet III 1408. "Traités assez recherchés". Cioranescu 14017 (1st ed.).

Die erste Edition wurde 1534 in Mainz veröffentlicht, demselben Jahr in dem Martin Luther die komplette Übersetzung des Neuen und Alten Testaments vollendet hatte. Nach der katholischen Übersetzung des Neuen Testaments von Hieronymus Emser im Jahr 1527 bildete die Bibelübersetzung von Johann Dietenberger die erste katholische Vollbibel mit Neuem und Alten Testament. Drei Jahre darauf erschien 1537 mit der Bibel von Johannes Eck eine weitere katholische Komplettübersetzung. Die Dietenberger-Bibel war im Gegensatz zur Lutherbibel in einer leicht oberdeutschen Sprachform gehalten, während die Übersetzung des Ingolstädter Theologen Dr. Eck sehr starke bairische Züge hatte. Dies führte dazu, dass die Bibel von Johann Dietenberger in den katholischen Regionen außerhalb Bayerns und Österreichs die meist gedruckte Bibel wurde.

This copy is printed from the first state of the plate, without the number in the lower right corner. It is extremely rare to find this sheet on the market. Stylianou notes to this plate: 'The plan is an accurate outline of the fortified town and the palazo and the Piaza are correctly positioned. The citadel is marked simply as Castello. There is no indication of orientation, but north should be in the right bottom corner. At the top left, a note tells us: Loco ditto Fontanelle. In questa e larmata di Mustafa general de turchi et qui si sbarcono li turchi et si a brusio la naue uenuta di Nicosia carica di pregioni. At the top right, another note states: Qui e acamparo Mustapha assai longi della citta et tiene miglia 3 di exercito. The several formations of the besieging forces are inscribed, Piadieri turcheschi, Turthi (cavalry in attack) Caualeria (in formation), Ianiceri (two formations), Arcieri, Stradioti (small cavalry formation, centre left). In their midst a sortie of foot-soldiers with their guns blazing, is marked, Cristiani; they advance towards the attacking Turchi (cavalry). Between them, two horses, their riders dead on the ground, are marked, Scaramutia. A location near by is marked as Loc(o)do ditto col(le) delli Hebrei. At the bottom right, an inlet of the outer port is marked, la cala d(i) S. Catarina; above it, a small tower is marked Torre de loc(an)da; above this we have the Casale di S. Alessio. On the left, by the sea, two formations of field-guns are blazing towards the town, one of them marked Forte and the other (bottom), Forte dove turchi bateuano le 3 naue et il porto. In the inner harbour, by the walls, are le 3 naue. At the entrance to the outer harbour are the Galee turchesche che guardauano il porto. In the open sea there are several ships, some with their guns blazing. Those with their sails up (top left), bear crescents on their sails. This pictorial representation of the siege, is based on contemporary amounts, in its main features. There is no imprint, but the workmanship of the engraving appears to he similar to the siege of Nicosia. Famagusta fell to the Turks on the

        Corfu insula antiquamente detta Malena

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio,, 1571 - Zacharakis, C. G.: A Catalogue of printed Maps of Greece, 3rd edition, #777/504. - Eine sehr seltene, frühe Karte von Korfu aus Camocios Isole Famose. Gezeigt ist die Insel umgeben von venezianischen Galeeren. Mit einer schöne Renaissance-Kartusche und Kompassrose. Dieses Blatt ist vom ersten Zustand der Platte gedruckt, ohne die Zahl in der unteren rechten Ecke und ist äußerst selten auf dem Markt zu finden. Zu den begehrtesten kartographischen Arbeiten zählen die Italienischen Atlanten des 16. Jahrhunderts. Neben den sogenannten Lafreri Atlanten, einer individuellen Zusammenstellung von Karten verschiedener Größen, entstanden bei den Venezianischen Verlegern Camocio und Bertelli auch einige Atlanten mit Karten von einheitlicher Größe und Machart. Einer der wichtigsten dieser Atlanten, ist der erstmals 1566 von Camocio herausgegebene Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime, eine Zusammenstellung von Karten der Gebiete, welche unter Einfluss der Venezianer standen. Dargestellt wird die Situation während der Belagerung Wiens 1566, sowie die Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Venezianern und Türken im Mittelmeer während der Jahre 1570-1573. Beinhaltet sind vornehmlich Karten der Mittelmeer Küsten, die wichtigsten Inseln, sowie Stadtansichten. Der Atlas wurde zwischen 1566 und 1574 von Camocio ohne Titel herausgegeben, ab 1575 erschien die Kartensammlung, gedruckt von den original Platten, bei Donato Bertelli. - Mit original breiten Rändern, selten, da Blätter aus Camocios Isole Famose zumeist am und in den Plattenrand beschnitten sind. Etwas fingerfleckig im Rand, dort auch Gekritzel von alter Hand. Sehr gutes Exemplar in kräftigem Abdruck. - A very rare, early map of Corfu from Camocio's Isole Famose. Showing the island surrounded by Venetian galleys with a nice renaissance cartouche and a compass rose. This copy is printed from the first state of the plate, without the number in the lower right corner. It is extremely rare to find this sheet on the market. The Italian atlases of the 16th Century are among the much sought after cartographic rarities. Besides the so-called Lafreri atlases, a compilation of individual maps of various sizes, the Venetian publishers Camocio and Bertelli issued a few atlases with maps of uniform size and style. Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime is one of the most important of these atlases, issued first by Camocio in 1566. It comprises a collection of maps of the areas under the influence of the Venetians. Shown is the situation during the siege of Vienna in 1566, and the battle between the Venetians and Turks in the Mediterranean during the years 1570-1573. Mainly included are maps of the Mediterranean coasts, the main islands, and city views. The atlas was published between 1566 and 1574 by Camocio without a title, after 1575 it was issued by Donato Bertelli with a printed title, also printed from the original plates. - With original wide margin, which is rare, since sheets from Camocio's Isole Famose often cut along or within the plate marks. Some soiling and scribble by old hand in margins. A very good copy with a strong impression.

        Nuovo Ragionamento del Fabricare le Fortezze. [with] Modo di formare con prestezza le moderne battaglie di picche, archibugieri, et cavalleria

      Giovanni Francesco & Pietro Maria de' Marchetti, Brescia 1571 - THOMAS KNYVETT'S COPY FIRST and only early editions 4to., ff. [iv] 35 i.e. 34 ; [iv] 30 [i]. Two works in one, separate t-ps to each. Roman letter, Aldine-style anchor and dolphin device to both t-ps, illustrations and diagrams to both works, one double page to first, 3 double to second, woodcut initials and large ornaments. Three bifolia diagrams to first work unsewn as issued, first t-p very slightly soiled. Very good unsophisticated copy in contemp. English calf, a bit rubbed, blind panel with gilt central and corner fleurons, spine gilt in compartments, morocco lettering piece, small restoration, lacking ties. 14th C English vellum ms stub, rubricated, blue initial, 16th C ms autographs of Thomas Knyvett in Italic and Secretary hands on 1st t-p, armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on pastedown, Shirburn castle blindstamp at head of first 2 ll, early press mark inside front cover and classification on blank verso of last. The first work is an argument on how to build fortresses to make them safer, both in theory and practice, a reminder of the prestige Cataneo enjoyed as a military architect and mathematician whose treatises had a powerful influence on military building across the Mediterranean and the coast of Africa. It also covers how to measure great distances. The second explains in great detail how to calculate the necessary numbers and arrange formations of pikemen, artillerymen and cavalry, how to march and be effective in battle, with the help of illustrations. Sir Thomas Knyvett (1539-1618), barrister, of a leading Norfolk family with estates in Lincolnshire, Suffolk, Staffordshire and Yorkshire started to build his splendid collection after the first flood of books and manuscripts from the monastic libraries. At his death his library numbered approximately 1,400 titles and 70 manuscripts on various subjects, as recorded in his library catalogue now in Cambridge University Library, which also received much of his collection in 1715. Favouring original texts, he became proficient in many languages, nurturing a particular love of Italian, owning at least 80 Italian books. Never a very rich man, the size of his library is extraordinary for the period, and it is likely that many of his books were obtained second hand. This binding is typical of those bound for his collection. Of the five works by Cataneo listed in his catalogue (which mentions this volume), none were later gifted to Cambridge. i. BM STC It. 158.

        Rerum a Societate Iesu in oriente gestarum. Accessere de Iaponicis rebus epistolarum libri 4, item recogniti, & in latinum ex hispanico sermone conuersi

      apud Sebaldum Mayer, Dillingen 1571 - JESUIT MISSIONS IN THE EAST. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. ff. (viii) 228 (iv). Roman letter. Historiated woodcut initials, ‘liber collegi moguntini socetatis Jesu’ (Mainz) in contemporary hand on title and verso of penultimate leaf, crossed out, stamp of ‘Dom S. Aloys Jerseiens S. J’ (Jersey) on title, small C19th label of ‘Dom. Laval S.J.’ on pastedown partially covering contemp. bibl. note, small C19th stamp on fly with shelf no. pasted beneath, couple of early ms notes in Latin and German above. Title fractionally dusty, the odd marginal mark. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary blindstamped pigskin over boards, covers triple blind ruled to a panel design, panels with blind floral rolls, blind fleurons at center, spine with raised bands, blind tooled in compartments, later calf label gilt, upper joint cracked at head, a little worn and rubbed. Rare first edition of the first attempt to write a detailed history of the Jesuit missions in the East, especially in Japan, and one of the most important and diverse compilations of letters relating to the Jesuit mission in the Far East; prefaced by Acosta's important "Commentarius", the work includes some 39 letters dating from between 1548-1564, most of which relate to Japan. As early in the 1550’s influential Jesuits argued for an official synthesis of letters from the missions, motivated in part by the fear that someone else would do it for them, and in part to promote their enormous successes in the east. The text is based on a manuscript ‘Historia dos missiones do Oriente até o anno de 1568’ written by the Portuguese, Manuel da Costa. Da Costa, a Jesuit missionary and bibliographer who taught at Coimbra where most Jesuit letters were available in uncensored form. His manuscript was sent to Rome, translated into Latin, and was given to the young novice Giovanni Pietro Maffei (1533-1603) to prepare for publication. Maffei added the ‘De Japonicis rebus epistolarum’ containing abridged Latin translations of letters sent from the Jesuits working in Japan until the year 1564. In his introduction Maffei congratulates Da Costa on his effort in summarizing the contents of the letters together in the commentary. Maffei was later to write the hugely successful ‘Historiarum Indicarum libri XVI’, much praised for its excellent treatment of Japan. The letters begin with the Japanese convert Paul's letter from Goa written in December 1548, followed by two famous letters of St. Francis Xavier published here for the first time. The first of these is written from Malacca in June 1549, the second on his arrival in Japan dated Kagoshima, November 1549. Letters by Frois (1532-1597), Vilela (1525-1572), and Almeida (1525-1583) are of particular interest in that they give much detail of Japanese religion, culture, and customs. This work was reprinted and translated many times, and made a significant contribution to early European perceptions of the east. A very good copy of the rare first edition of this seminal work that paints one of the earliest detailed pictures of Japan, from the Jesuit college in Mainz now the Johannes Gutenberg University.

Covers with intricately entwined bands and giltstamped cover title within ovals: "PRO|BLE|MA" (front cover) and "A|RIS|TOT|ELI|S" (back cover). Edges goffered and gilt. In protective case. Splendid work by Jakob Krause (1531-1586), Germany's foremost Renaissance bookbinder. A rare presentation copy commissioned by Elector August of Saxony, and thus a great sign of the Elector's favor, as August of Saxony was adamant that his court officials worked for him only (cf.

P34]) and the same stamps (Schmidt E41, e. g.) cf. the presentation copy for Count Palatine Johann Casimir in the Bibliotheca Palatina. - The book, first published in 1551, is not actually a translation of Aristotle, but rather a compilation from Aristotle, Hippocrates, Avicenna, Galenus, Averroes and other philosophers, physicians, and scholastic theologists (cf. Hoffmann I, 350). The final 42 ff. contain "Ausserlesene Fragstücke, Marci Antonii Zimare [.] An den Durchleutigsten Fürsten [.] Johannem Castriotum". - Rare; no copy recorded in OCLC.

Bookplate to front pastedown. A handsome copy. * First edition. Also known as the Henrican Canons, the Reformatio Legum Ecclesiasticarum is a revision of Catholic canon law intended for the newly established Church of England. It was written between 1550 and 1552 by the Commissioners on Revision of the Ecclesiastical Laws, which was headed by Thomas Cranmer, the Archbishop of Canterbury. One of the first acts of the English Reformation, it is an important source of information about the state of English canon law and church discipline in the mid-Tudor period and the challenges faced by the reformed church's leaders. It was edited by John Foxe after Cranmer's death and translated into Latin by Cheke and Haddon. Although it was never ratified by Parliament, it was highly esteemed by later lawyers and for many years an unofficial authority in ecclesiastical courts. According to the ESTC, this book may have been published in 1572, "since Walter Haddon, who died on 21 Jan. 1572, is referred to in the preface as 'clarissimae memoriae.'"

        Disputationum de medicina nova Philippi Paracelsi Pars Prima [-quarta].

      Basle, Peter Perna, [1571-] 1573 - Four parts in one vol, 4to (212 x 145 mm), pp [xvi] 267 [17] [3, last blank]; [viii] 284; [vi] [1, blank] 258 [22]; [iv] 310 [1, blank] [28], with woodcut devices to titles, and a fine woodcut portrait of Paracelsus at the end of the first part; old Jesuit inscription at head of title, a couple of small, old marginal repairs, some very light browning, a fine copy in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, two clasps, ownership inscription to front free end-paper, bookplate on front paste-down. £5000First editions, a rare complete set of Erastus' famous work; most surviving copies comprise two or three parts only. 'The first comprehensive refutation of the Paracelsians was that of the Swiss physician and theologian, Thomas Erastus. He had been commissioned by the Duke of Saxony for this purpose, and in 1572-73 the four parts of his Disputationes de Medicina nova Paracelsi appeared in print. Erastus was willing to grant to Paracelsus some credit for his ability as a chemist and for pointing out some errors in Galen, but in general Erastus stood as the foremost sixteenth-century defender of medieval tradition .'Erastus was utterly opposed to the philosophic system of Paracelsus. The neo-Platonic unification of the corporeal and the spiritual with their continuous transition and conversion was objectionable to him for theological reasons. He could not accept the opinion of Paracelsus that Creation could be likened to a chemical separation. Furthermore, he castigated Paracelsus for his conception of the microcosm . He accused him of Gnosticism, and among other things complained of his belief in miracles, the power of amulets, and the use of spoken words in incantations. In medicine - and Erastus like Paracelsus was a physician - he was at odds with his compatriot over the humoral system . Erastus placed special emphasis on the three principles - a truly monstrous innovation which deserved to be refuted at length . For his part, Erastus held firmly to the traditional elements, and stated that if the chemical art does not decompose samples to the three principles, it does decompose them to the four elements . It was his view that Paracelsus had made his fundamental mistake in his concept of "element". In his belief in the noncorporeality of an "element" he was led to conceive of it as similar in nature to the spirit or soul of a substance, a concept which Erastus vigorously denied' (Debus, The English Paracelsians p 39).The fine woodcut portrait is presented with a note by Conrad Gesner, calling Paracelsus a poor vagabond, and a drunkard given to gambling, and condemning his use of the German vernacular, instead of academic Latin.Provenance: Walter Pagel (1898-1983), German pathologist, medical historian, and Paracelsus scholar, with his signature on front free end-paperAdams E910 (faulty copies only); BMSTC German p 285; Durling 1383 (the first two parts only); Neu 1314 (the first part only); Parkinson and Lumb 763 (the first two parts only); Waller 2778 (the first part only); Wellcome 2057, 2058, and 2059 (the first three parts only)

        Trattato degli elementi raccolto da vari autori di filosofia et ridotto in chiaro et breve sommario per M. Stefano Breventano, cittadino di Pavia

      Appresso Girolamo Bartoli 1571 In 4, cc. (4) + 37 + (7). Gora a 10 cc. interne. P. pg. coeva. Edizione originale poco comune di quest'opera dedicata ai fenomeni legati ai quattro elementi: fuoco, aere, acqua e terra. Poco si sofferma sui primi due, il fuoco viene diviso in due categorie: l'elemento puro, senza alcuna mistura, cagione dell'essere, l'altro ? cagione di corruzione. Grazie al fuoco si generano le piante, tempera la fredda influenza della luna ecc. Si sostiene poi che il fuoco celeste non consuma alcuna cosa mentre il nostro terrestre consuma la materia cui si appiglia, risolve le pietre in metalli, riduce l'arse pietre in calcina ecc. L'aere viene definito 'sottile ma d'una sottigliezza ottusa', l'aere col movimento si raffredda, non c'? cosa che pi? riempa che l'aere il quale stando fermo si corrompe. Questo ? diviso in tre regioni: soprana, bassa e mezzana. Tratta poi delle generazione dei venti - .l'aura si genera dalle humide fumosit? che salgon dai fiumi o dalle valli .ma sormontando il sole si consuma e svanisce. - . L'acqua signoreggia a tutti gli altri elementi, dice Breventano, questa ha 3 propriet?: di stendersi, giova a figurar forme artificiali, ultimo fa feconda la terra mollificando la sua durezza. Spiega poi l'origine delle piogge con l'evaporazione dell'acqua del mare e che i pesci si nutrono di acqua ma mescolata con gli altri tre elementi. Tratta poi le acque termali spiegando la genesi con il passare su fene metallifere, solforose, nitrose ecc. e ognuna d? giovamento a parti diverse del corpo, profondendosi in molti esempi (Abano, Lucca, Acqui ma anche Chio, Ethiopia, Schiavonia ecc.). Vengono descritte, peraltro, le acque presenti nelle Valli Bergamasche e Bresciane che generano il gozzo (quio denominato gavacciolo). Dopo le fonti l'autore descrive i laghi citando il Maggiore come caratterizzato da grande pescosit? e pericolosit? per le tempeste, quello di Garda come popolato da carpioni che si nutrono di sabbie dorate. Cita il Po' che nasce dal Monte Vesulo e il Timavo che scorre sottoterra. Cita poi il fiume Imera in Sicilia, che si divide in 2 rami e uno ? di acqua salata e i casi in cui un teremoto pu? far nascere un fiume come farlo scomparire. Termina con l'acqua dei pozzi e con gli effetti delle varie acque sul corpo. L'ultimo elemento descritto ? la terra che Breventano divide anch'essa in 3 parti. La parte pi? pura dice trovarsi al centro - .grave, soda et immobile. se si potesse far un buco in essa che riuscisse dall'uno hemisferio all'altro et entro si gittasse un sasso, quando questo fusse arrivato al mezzo si fermerebbe. - Passa poi ad una descrizione geografica affermando la terra essere tutta abitata come dimostrato dalle esplorazioni delle Americhe, tratta dell'Africa ecc. La parte finale ? dedicata alla geologia, descrivendo le varie tipologie di roccie e gli effetti di queste sui terreni e sulle piante ma sopprattutto, i fenomeni vulcanici, come l'Etna, le Isole Eolie sulle quali si dilunga, e una quantit? di fenomeni vulcanici in Italia e altrove (Rieti, Pozzuoli ma anche la Frigia, Scozia ecc.). L'utima parte ? dedicata ai terremoti che egli sostiene essere generati dall'aria che cerca d'uscire dalle vene della terra e di questi descrive i vari effetti. Del Breventano ? nota un'opera rimasta manoscritta interamente dedicata ai terremoti e che nella sostanza non si discosta da quanto affermato in queste pagine. Bidello dell'Accademia degli Affidati in Pavia, ? noto per una storia di questa citt? e per altre opere di carattere scientifico. ITA

        Zvydhollandia stricte sumta

      - This region in South Holland and Brabant is surrounded by rivers and marshes. Blaeu renders the map beautifully and depicts dykes, canals, polders and peat moss farms most prominently rather than emphasizing towns and roads. This region is now an extensive tidal freshwater wetlands preserve and a national park. The map is in excellent condition with full margins, no text on verso, possible separate issue map for use in a composite atlas. 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. A treat to see in black and white. Map. Engraving. Image measures 15 x 20". Sheet measures 18.25 x 22".

Mit 43 Holzschnitten von Tobias Stimmer.

      [Strassburg: Josias Rihel 1571]. 371 Blatt. Geprägtes Ganzleder der Zeit auf Holzdeckeln und vier Bünden, Folio, 36 x 22 cm.. (UNVOLLSTÄNDIGES EXEMPLAR, vorne fehlen 18 Blatt und hinten 6 Blatt Register. Einband etwas bestoßen, berieben und fleckig, die Schließen fehlen, vorderer Holzdeckel gebrochen, Zustand im Preis berücksichtigt, detaillierte Beschreibung weiter unten!) Der zweite Band erschien 1572. Das vorliegende Exemplar beginnt mit Blatt 7, es fehlen Titelei, 12 Blatt Vorreden und Register, sowie 6 Blatt des Textes, hinten fehlen 6 Blatt Register, die ersten und letzten Blatt stärker angerändert und teilweise mit Verlust der gedruckten Marginalien, die letzten 4 vorhandenen Blätter sind falsch zusammengeheftet und liegen lose bei, sonst ist der Text vollständig. Die fehlenden Blätter liegen als KOPIEN auf weißem Papier unserem Exemplar bei! Blatt 31-48 sind verbunden und folgen auf Blatt 54, andere Blätter sind falsch foliiert. Die Blätter haben teilweise Einrisse - 2 längere - und kleine Fehlstellen, Blatt 274 einen Abriss mit Textverlust, teils Wurmspuren meist im weißen Rand und kaum Buchstabenverlust, kleine Feuchtigkeitsränder, das Papier ist teilweise etwas gebräunt bzw. braun-, finger- und anderweitig fleckig. Auf dem vorderen und hinteren Spiegel, sonst nur ganz vereinzelt finden sich zeitgenössische Marginalien. Der schöne blindgeprägte, zeitgenössische Einband hat zwei 2 cm lange Einrisse am unteren Kapital, die Schließen fehlen, das Leder ist an den Ecken aufgeplatzt, sonst aber in dem Alter entsprechenden guten Zustand. Die Prägungen mit Rollen, Stempeln und Streicheisen in drei Rahmen zeigen Bilder von Heiligen. - Ludwig Rabus (Memmingen 1524 - 1592 Ulm) war lutherischer Theologe, Schüler Luthers, ein begabter Prediger und ein protestantischer Eiferer. Nach Aufenthalten in Tübingen, Wittenberg und Straßburg wurde er 1556 Superintendent in Ulm und war "aufs eifrigste bemüht, die letzten Überreste des katholischen Kirchenwesens, des Zwinglianismus, Wiedertäuferthums, Schwenkfeldianismus (...) auszurotten, dagegen das orthodoxe Luthertum in Kirche und Schule fest zu begründen." (ADB). Martyrologe wie "Historien der Märtyrer" waren ein Mittel im Glaubenskampf und sollten die Anhänger der gegnerischen Konfession durch die Schilderung vorbildlicher Lebens- und Leidensgeschichten bekehren. Die Holzschnitte zeigen vornehmlich die verschiedensten Arten von Folter und Hinrichtungen wie Scheiterhaufen, Enthauptung mit dem Schwert, Fallbeil, wilde Tiere, Steinigung, Säge und Kreuzigung. Die Holzschnitte stammen von dem Schweizer Künstler Tobias Stimmer (Schaffhausen 1539 - 1584 Strasbourg), lediglich die beiden Holzschnitte 65 verso und 68 recto weichen in Form und Stil von den anderen ab und könnten von einem anderen Künstler stammen. In seiner Straßburger Zeit ab 1570 hat Stimmer zahlreiche Illustrationen für Bücher geschaffen, das vorliegende Buch finden wir in der online-Recherche aber kaum erwähnt. Die Holzschnitte erinnern an Holbein und Urs Graf und messen jeweils 11,8 x 14,4 cm, sie sind jeweils von 5 Holzstöcken gedruckt, die in unterschiedlichen Kombinationen verwendet werden. Leisten oben und unten und zwei flankierende Druckstöcke bilden einen Rahmen, in dessen Mitte der eigentliche Druck steht. Der Rahmen zeigt religiöse und mythologische Motive, für jede Position des Rahmens gab es 4 unterschiedliche Druckstöcke. Für das zentrale Bild mit den Maßen 7,1 x 7,1 cm konnten wir 28 verschiedene Druckstöcke feststellen! Von den Illustrationen Stimmers fehlen in vorliegendem unkompletten Exemplar der Titelholzschnitt und der Holzschnitt verso, ebenso der Holzschnitt zu "Abel" auf Blatt 1 mit einem weiteren Motiv im zentralen Bild, das im restlichen Buch nicht wiederholt wird. Tobias Stimmer gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Künstler seiner Zeit, da viele seiner Werke verloren gegangen sind, ist sein Name wenig bekannt. - ADB-Onlinefassung (für Rabus: 27, S. 97-99 und Stimmer: 55, S. 630-633); VD 16: R 51. - Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.

        Griecken. "Graeciae Univerae Secundum hodierum situm Neoterica Descriptio

      Greece: Antverpiæ"/Antwerp.. " ghedruckt by Gieles van Diest." 1571/3. Copper engraved map of Greece after Jacob Gastaldi from Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" 1571 edition; coloured ;Dutch text to verso. The map is from the first Dutch text edition of the "Theatrum". Good dark impression; ligtly toned; old red crayon lines from Arta to Lamia and on the Isthmus of Corinth, various other pencil underlinings; Short centrefo0ld split at lower margin [repaired to verso]. Abraham Ortelius,[ 1527-1598] Flemish Cartographer . produced the first modern Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" in 1570. printed by Aegidus Coppen Diest. There were numerous editions thereafter with texts in various languages; the printing of such was taken over by Chrstoffel Plantijn in 1579 . Ortelius himself drew all the maps in manuscript before passing them to the printers. there is conjecture that he may have engraved some of the plates as well Ortelius was Geographer Royal To Phillip II of Spain from 1575. He also worked closely with Braun & Hogenburg on the "Civitas Orbis Terarum". After his death the plates were purchased by Jan Baptiste Vrients in 1601 who published further editions until 1612.
