        Candia vel Creta insula posta nel mare Mediterraneo

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio, 1571. 19,7 : 15,9 cm.. Zacharakis, C. G.: A Catalogue of printed Maps of Greece, 3rd edition, #786/512. - Eine sehr seltene, frühe Karte von Kreta 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. Sehr gutes Exemplar in kräftigem Abdruck. - A very rare, early map of Crete 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 in margins. A very good copy with a strong impression.

        Ordenliche Beschreibung des Christlichen, Hochlöblichen und Fürstlichen Beylags oder Hochzeit, so da gehalten ist worden durch den Durchleuchtigisten [...] Herrn Carolen, Ertzhertzog zu Osterreich [...] mit dem Hochgebornen Fräwlein Maria, geborne Hertzogin zu Bayrn, den XXVI. Augusti in der Kayserlichen Statt Wienn [...] in Teutsche Carmina gestelt [...].

      Wien, Blasius Eber, 1571.. 126 (statt 132) nn. Bll., jede Seite mit vierteiliger Holzschnittbordüre. Mit 129 (von 133) Wappenholzschnitten, 9 ganzseitigen figürlichen Textholzschnitten und 16 (davon 11 doppelblattgroßen) Holzschnittafeln. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband mit kalligraphischem Rückentitel. Dreiseitiger Farbschnitt, Bindebänder erneuert. Folio.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe des Hochzeitsbuchs für Karl II. von Innerösterreich u. Maria von Bayern; einer der schönsten und seltensten Wiener Drucke des 16. Jahrhunderts. Der wohl auch für die Organisation der mehrtägigen Feierlichkeiten mitverantwortliche Autor beschreibt "mit der Hilfe des [ihn begleitenden] klugen Zwerges die Hochzeitsfeierlichkeiten [...] Die 'ordentliche Beschreibung' ist in Reimen verfaßt, die Schilderung des Ringelrennens [und des Turniers] enthält allerdings auch Prosastellen" (Vocelka, 67). Aus der nur drei Jahre tätigen Offizin Blasius Ebers kennt Mayer nur sieben Werke; das vorliegende ist "sein bekanntes und zugleich sein Hauptwerk [...] Wirrich scheint dieses Gedicht als Geschenk an Fürsten, an den Adel, an Städte und Stände herumgesandt zu haben [...] Der Glanzpunkt des Werkes besteht in bildlichen Darstellungen der Wiener Bürgerwehr, von Vermummten, Turnieren. Diese Holzschnitte sind von verschiedenen Meistern. Die Druckseiten sind mit einem breitem Rahmen versehen, der Hasen, Füchse, Greife, Lämmer, Biber, Ziegen, Hirsche, Elephanten etc. in wunderlichen Blattranken zeigt" (Mayer). Nachdem die Holzschnittafeln separat verkauft wurden, variiert die Ausstattung der überlieferten Exemplare stark; Vocelka bringt eine Aufstellung und rudimentäre Kollation der ihm bekannten. Das "vollständigste Exemplar in Wien wird in der Bibliothek des Museums für angewandte Kunst aufbewahrt" (Vocelka, 67ff.) Vorliegend eines von nur zwei einigermaßen vollständigen Exemplaren, die in den letzten Jahrzehnten auf dem Markt zu verzeichnen waren. Das zuletzt bei Reiss versteigerte Exemplar enthielt keine einzige der oftmals gar als verschollen bezeichneten Holzschnittafeln; weiters fehlten der Titel und zumindest 3 Textblätter (Reiss 1995, Aukt. 59, 1258; DM 10.000). - Hier fehlen wie immer das Textblatt D4 und das letzte weiße Blatt, außerdem der Titel sowie die Bll. C10 sowie T2 und T7. Vorhanden sind aber 16 der insgesamt 22 Holzschnittafeln: die fast immer fehlenden 4 Tafeln mit den Fahnenträgern sowie die zehn zu einem mehrfach gefalteten Festzug montieren Holzschnitte mit der Darstellung des Aufzugs der Wiener Bürgerwehr, das große Reiterbild des Bürgermeisters von Wien nebst Gefolge sowie schließlich ein Doppelblatt mit Abbildung des Turniers. - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt, teils auch leicht fingerfleckig, einige alt hinterlegte Einrisse auf einigen Textseiten (jedoch durchwegs ohne nennenswerte Textberührung). Im ganzen ansprechendes Exemplar. - VD 16, W 3587 (stark inkompl.). Lipperheide Sc4 (mit 15 Tafeln). Mayer I, 112, 634. Goedeke II, 326, 4, 4. Drugulin II, 44. K. Vocelka, Habsburgische Hochzeiten 1550-1600, Wien 1976, S. 47-77. Vinet 659 ("volume de plus grand rarete"). Ruggieri 937 (mit genauer Kollation der Tafeln).

        Espositione dell'XI et XII cap. del IIII lib. d'Esdra: sopra gli accidenti passati, presenti, et futuri della reuolutione del grande, et tremendo imperio dell'Aquila: quarta, et ultima monarchia nel mondo. Nuovamente composta per l'eccellentiss. m. Marco Antonio Louisino vdinese, ...

      Venezia, Mattheo Boselli, 1571.. 8°. Mit 57, teilweise wiederholten, Holzschnitten im Text und halbeitengrosser Druckermarke auf Titel. (4), 92, (12) Bll. Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit (ohne Vorsätze, Deckel berieben).. Erste Ausgabe. Der in Udine wirkende Arzt Marcantonio Luigini (auch Louisino oder Lovisino, 1533-1576) appelliert in seiner Vorrede an Kaiser Maximilian II. (1527-1576), den gefahrvollen Kampf mit der Mutter aller Bestien zur Rettung des Christentums aufzunehmen. Gerichtet ist die Schrift gegen das expandierende Osmanische Reich, das im Oktober desselben Jahres in der Schlacht von Lepanto eine Niederlage durch die von Don Juan de Austria (Ritter Johann von Österreich), Generalkapitän der Meere, befehligte Armada hinnehmen musste. "It is hardly surprising that constant mention is made of the Turkish empire and its threat, a threat which in October of the same year, was roundly beaten at the battle of Lepanto by Don John of Austria. The text is a mishmash of apocalyptic texts and their interpretation and is clearly influenced by Joachimite and similar texts (for the background see M. Reeves, The influence of prophecy in the later Middle Ages, Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1969, passim). The illustrations, some repeated several times, include a small map of Constantinople and the Bosphorus" (Sotheby's cat. of 14 and 15 October 1999: The Library of Robert Michael Burrell Books on the Middle East, item no. 481). - Mit hs. Datum vom 12. August 1710 auf Unterrand des Titels, italienische Notiz auf Vorsatz. - Adams L-1539; BMC, STC Italian, 394; EDIT16 CNC 27062. First edition. The Udine born physician Marcantonio Luigini (also Louisino or Lovisino, 1533-1576), in his preface calls upon the emperor Maximilian II (1527-1576) 'to undertake the perilous conflict with the mother of all beasts for the salvation and foundation of the sacred christian religion against the roving philosophers, epicurean destroyers of divine providence, and against the heretic, enemies of the holy Roman church'. It is hardly surprising that constant mention is made of the Turkish empire and its threat, a threat which in October of the same year, was roundly beaten at the battle of Lepanto by Don John of Austria. The text is a mishmash of apocalyptic texts and their interpretation and is clearly influenced by Joachimite and similar texts (for the background see M. Reeves, The influence of prophecy in the later Middle Ages, Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1969, passim). The illustrations, some repeated several times, include a small map of Constantinople and the Bosphorus (cf. auction catalogue Sotheby': The Library of Robert Michael Burrell Books on the Middle East, item no. 481, offered on 14 and 15 October 1999).

        Problemata Aristotelis. Mancherley zweyfelhafftiger Fragen gründtliche Erörterung und aufflösung, Deß hochberühmten Aristotelis, und vil anderer bewerten natur erkundiger [...].

      Frankfurt am Main, Johann Wolff, 1571.. 152 nn. Bll. Brauner Kalblederband von Jakob Krause auf vier Doppelbünden über Pappe mit reicher Decken-, Rücken- und Stehkantenvergoldung. Decken mit reichem Band- und Flechtwerk und goldgeprägtem Deckeltitel im Oval "PRO|BLE|MA" (Vorderdeckel) und "A|RIS|TOT|ELI|S" (Hinterdeckel). Schnitt vergoldet und arabesk gepunzt. In Kassette. 8vo.. Prachtvolle, an die bekannten, vor allem durch die Bibliothek Groliers überlieferten französischen Vorbilder angelehnte Arbeit Jakob Krauses (1531-1586), der als der "bedeutendste deutsche Buchbinder der Renaissance" (DBE) gilt. Es handelt sich um einen der seltenen Geschenkbände des Kurfürsten August von Sachsen, die als "ein besonderer Gunstbeweis gesehen werden [müssen], denn August von Sachsen achtete bei jedem seiner Hofbeamten streng darauf, daß diese nur für ihn arbeiteten. So dürfte die Kurfürstin Anna nur städtische Buchbinder für sich arbeiten lassen: Die Krause-Einbände in ihrer Bibliothek waren seltene Geschenke des Kurfürsten August" (Bibl. Palatina [1986], I 252). Zu zwei in der Gestaltung der Decken und Rückenfelder identen und mit derselben Platte (145:92 mm Platte mit Bandwerk und Ranken [Schmidt Nr. P34]) und denselben Stempeln (u. a. Schmidt E41) hergestellten Einbänden vgl. den in der Bibliotheca Palatina befindlichen Geschenkband des Kurfürsten für den Pfalzgrafen Johann Casimir bzw. die Beschreibung eines, in der Landesbibliothek Dresden aufbewahrten Bandes aus der Bibliothek des Kurfürsten August (1071:KA 288) bei K. v. Rabenau: "Auf beide Deckel ist eine Platte mit einem schmalen leeren Rahmen aufgedruckt und füllt sie bis auf [...] einen äußeren Rand mit dreifachen blinden Streicheisenlinien. In der Mitte der Platte befindet sich ein Oval innerhalb einer exzentrischen Rollwerkkartusche [...] Um die Kartusche und teilweise durch ihre Einrollungen hindurch zieht sich ein Band, das nach einer Überkreuzung sich in eine breit ausladende Metallachse verwandelt, um dann in den äußeren Rahmen einzumünden. Das Bandwerk wird umspielt und in den äußeren Regionen durchdrungen von einem System dünner Ranken, die sich verbreitern und in mauresken Blättern und Blüten enden können. Ausgangs- und Knotenpunkte für diesen Überschwang sind die großen Kelchblüten in dem Beschlagwerk oben und unten sowie die miteinander verkoppelten Ranken seitlich der Mitte [...] Die fünf Rückenfelder haben die übliche konzentrische Abstimmung und den Wechsel von geometrischen Formen und einer kleineren Rankenbordüre" (ebenda, 86). - Zum Inhalt: Das erstmals 1551 erschienene Werk "ist keine eigentliche Ubsz. der aristotel. Probleme, sondern eine Samml. aus Aristoteles, Hippokrates, Avicenna, Galen, Averrhois u. a. Philosophen u. Aerzten und scholastischer Thelogen" (Hoffmann I, 350). Die letzten 42 Blätter enthalten "Ausserlesene Fragstücke / Marci Antonii Zimare [...] An den Durchleutigsten Fürsten [...] Johannem Castriotum". - Selten, kein Exemplar über OCLC nachweisbar. Kleinere Fehlstellen am Einbandrücken und den Ecken sorgfältig restauriert, Ausriß im Titelrand fachmännisch angegossen (ohne Textberührung). - VD 16, P 4903. Zu identen Einbänden Krauses vgl. Stamp. Pal. V 1715 (Palatina-Ausstellung 1986, E 8.4.2 und Farbtafel 176) bzw. K. v. Rabenau, Deutsche Bucheinbände der Renaissance (Brüssel 1994), Nr. 86 (mit zwei Farbabbildungen) sowie Schunke, Vorläufiges Verzeichnis der in der sächsischen Landesbibliothek zu Dresden erhaltenen Krause-Einbände. In: Zentralblatt für Bibliothekswesen 70 (1956), S. 256. Zur hier verwendeten Platte vgl. Schmidt, Jakob Krause (Leipzig 1923), Nr. P34 (Einzelstempel u. Typen unter E41 bzw. auf Tafel 61).

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio, 1571. 17,4 : 21,2 cm.. Eine sehr seltene, frühe Karte der kroatischen Adriaküste aus Camocios Isole Famose. Gezeigt ist die befestigte Stadt Zadar mit Umgebung während des Venizianischen-Türkischen Krieges mit Schlachtenszenen und venezianischen Galeeren. Mit einer Kartusche und einer 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. Kleiner Einriss gerade in Bild reichend hinterlegt. Etwas fingerfleckig im Rand. Guter, kräftiger Abdruck. - A very rare, early map of the coast of Dalmatia, centred on the fortified city of Zadar from Camocio's Isole Famose. Showing the Turks and Venetians at war with several battle scenes and galleys. With a 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. Small tear just into image backed. Minor soiling in margin. A good and strong impression.

      1571. Tudeschis, Niccolo de, Archbishop (Abbas Panoramitanus) [1386-1445]. Corsetti, Antonio [d. 1503], Editor. Repertorium in Loculentissimas Praelectiones quas Idem in Quinque Decretalium Libros Divino Prorsus Ingenio, Labore Incredibili & Studio Doctissime Iuxta ac Elegantissime Concinnauit. Ea Quidem in Quinque Diligentia Conflatum, Ut Numerorum Ratione Fidelissime Subducta, Nullibi aut Falli, Aut Decipipossis: Quamlibet in Compluribus Accessionem Certe Incredibilem, Et Depravatorum Emendationem Maxime Necessariam, Hac nota Praesignatam Acceperis.

Folio (12" x 8-1/4"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered titles to spine and foot of text block, which is neatly detached with pastedowns and well-secured by cords. Moderate edgewear, bowing and spine stains to vellum, locations of cords worn through. Light toning to text, heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves, small worm hole to inner margin of front endleaf and title page, internally clean. * Later edition. Tudeschi, a Benedictine canonist from Sicily, earned his doctorate in canon law at the University of Bologna. He taught at the Universities of Siena, Parma and Bologna. "It was his canonical works, especially his 'Lectura in Decretales' 'In Sextum,' and 'In Clementinas,' that won him the title of 'lucerna juris' (lamp of the law) and insured him great authority; he also wrote 'Consilia,' 'Quaestiones,' 'Repetitiones,' 'Disputationes, Disceptationes et Allegationes,' and 'Flores Utriusque Juris.' A fine edition of his works appeared at Venice in 1477; among later editions...published in 1617-18 (Venice) in 10 folio volumes is especially notable": Catholic Encyclopedia. First published in 1481, Repertorium collects his notes on the fifth books of the Decretals of Gregory IX. Each of these has a reference so it can be used in conjunction with any edition of that work. Complete in itself, this is part of an eight-title series of Tudeschi's works.

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."

Ortelius war zunächst Karten- und Buchhändler, bildete sich aber zum Kartografen weiter. Laut John Vermeulen hat Ortelius mit seinem Zeitgenossen Gerhard Mercator zusammen gearbeitet. Am 20. Mai 1570 erschien seine erste Ausgabe vom Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, der ersten Sammlung von Landkarten in Buchform. Atlanten trugen damals noch nicht diesen Namen. Diese Sammlung wurde zwischen 1570 und 1612 in 42 Ausgaben und in 7 Sprachen veröffentlicht: Latein, deutsch, flämisch, französisch, spanisch, englisch und italienisch. Anders als seine Berufskollegen referenzierte er klar die Quellen seiner Karten und Texten. Das Werk enthält unter anderem eine Abbildung der bis 1492 bekannten Welt und war damit bereits zum Zeitpunkt der Kartenerstellung rückblickend. Weiterhin häufiger referenziert wird eine Karte von Ortelius mit Europa, Mittelmeer, Nordafrika und Arabien im Fokus die aus dem Jahr 1601 (andere Schätzung: 1603 bis 1612) stammt. Sie trägt den Titel Geographia sacra (heilige Geografie) trägt und weiterhin eine verkleinerte, eingebettete Weltkarte enthält. Die Detail-Eintragungen wurden primär für die Levante und Mesopotamien vorgenommen, also mit den in der Bibel erwähnten Orten bis hin zum Versuch Orte aus der biblischen Paradiesbeschreibung zu fixieren. Allein schon die Darstellung der Flussläufe in Mesopotamien fällt dabei eher ungenau aus. Das Werk existiert in mehreren Versionen mit wechselnden Textfeldern und wurde oftmals coloriert. Es wurde unter anderem in den historischen Atlas von Joan Janssonius (1652 bzw. 1662) aufgenommen, wobei es sich hier nach Ansicht von Experten typisch um händische Kopien der Originalvorlage handeln dürfte. Ortelius gilt heute auch als der erste, der aufgrund der zueinander passenden Umrisse vermutete, dass die Kontinente früher einmal zusammengehangen hätten und später durch "Erdbeben und Fluten" zerbrochen seien, so dass dadurch einst Amerika, Afrika und Europa entstanden sind. Die These füllt nur eine kurze Passage in mitten seines Werks "Thesaurus Geographicus" und wird von Fachleuten als erster schriftlicher Beleg für die Grundlagen der Theorien zur Kontinentaldrift und der daraus entstandenen Plattentektonik gewertet, die sich faktisch erst im 20. Jahrhundert etablieren konnten. Literatur: * Meurer, Peter H.: Fontes cartographici Orteliani: das "Theatrum orbis terrarum" von Abraham Ortelius und seine Kartenquellen. Diss. Weinheim: VCH, 1991.

Life He was born in the city of Antwerp; which was then in the Habsburg ruled Seventeen Provinces and is now in Belgium. A member of the influential Ortelius family of Augsburg, he traveled extensively in Europe. He is specifically known to have traveled throughout the Seventeen Provinces; south and west and north and east Germany (e.g., 1560, 1575aEUR"1576); France (1559aEUR"1560); England and Ireland (1576), and Italy (1578, and perhaps twice or thrice between 1550 and 1558). Beginning as a map-engraver, in 1547 he entered the Antwerp guild of St Luke as afsetter van Karten. His early career is that of a businessman, and most of his journeys before 1560 are for commercial purposes (such as his yearly visits to the Frankfurt book and print fair). In 1560, however, when travelling with Mercator to Trier, Lorraine and Poitiers, he seems to have been attracted, largely by MercatoraEUR s influence, towards the career of a scientific geographer; in particular he now devoted himself, at his friendaEUR s suggestion, to the compilation of that atlas, or Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World), by which he became famous. In 1575 he was appointed geographer to the king of Spain, Philip II, on the recommendation of Arias Montanus, who vouched for his orthodoxy (his family, as early as 1535, had fallen under suspicion of Protestantism). In 1578 he laid the basis of a critical treatment of ancient geography by his Synonymia geographica (issued by the Plantin press at Antwerp and republished in expanded form a....

Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo (ou Garci Ordóñez de Montalvo) était un écrivain espagnol de la fin du Moyen Âge, connu pour être l'auteur d'une nouvelle version d'un roman de chevalerie du XIVe siècle - Amadis de Gaule - et d'une suite de ce roman, qui connut un grand succès alors que s'ouvrait la période des grandes découvertes, influençant les conquistadors lors de l'exploration du nouveau monde notamment Hernán Cortés et d'autres explorateurs dans leur désir de découvrir cette île, qu'ils pensaient trouver le long de la côte occidentale de l'Amérique du Nord. En 1539, Francisco de Ulloa, naviguant pour le compte de Cortés, explora le Golfe de Californie et la côte de la Péninsule de Basse-Californie déterminant qu'il s'agisssait bien d'une péninsule et non d'une île.

Il volume ha sofferto l'umidità alle ultime 50 carte, che presentano restauri al margine superiore con parziale mancanza del testo. Abili piccoli restauri alla legatura sguardie recenti. Nell'insieme discreto esemplare. Opera rara nonostante le numerose edizioni, Graesse, III, 175. Palau y Dulcet VI,445. L'autore (1481-1545) fu inquisitore di Toledo e Valenza, vescovo di Cadice e cronista di Carlo V. Questa sua opera, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1529, ebbe già al suo apparire notevole successo. In essa ".sono comprese molte sententie notabili et essempi singolari, appartinenti non solamente ai Principi Christiani ma a tutti coloro che desiderano di vivere civilmente e da veri et honorati gentil'huomini. Con la giunta del quarto libro novamente tradotto di lingua Spagnuola in Italiano, da la copia originale di esso auttore, et fatto maggiore con lettere, figure e postille si come si conoscerà al segno de la mano, posta in margine". Non mancano consigli per le principesse e gran signore ".se vogliono essere ben maritate & che esse devono procurarsi l'amore con l'essere virtuose e non con strigherie" Nella Spagna, avviata ad una secolare alleanza fra il Trono e l?Altare, il vescovo Antonio de Guevara offre al suo sovrano un ampio e meticoloso trattato in quattro libri che, intitolandosi al più prestigioso degli optimi principes romani, il Marco Aurelio naturaliter cristiano, vuole essere una esauriente trattazione di tutte le virtù, pubbliche e private, delle quali deve essere fornito colui che il volere divino destina al governo dei popoli. Francesco Portonaris , da Trino di Monferrato, oggi Trino Vercellese, si fa carico della traduzione e della stampa in Venezia, dell?intero trattato, a beneficio ed istruzione del suo signore, il duca di Mantova e marchese del Monferrato. Non ci è dato sapere quanto il predetto traduttore fosse a conoscenza della vita e delle opere del vituperato Machiavelli, magro e secco nella persona quanto il suo libretto De Principatibus. Chi volesse potrebbe utilmente misurarsi nella lettura del Marco Aurelio, e subito dopo svelarne la trama nascosta mediante una meditata e fruttuosa lettura de Il Principe. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Gregory is well-known for his writings, which were more prolific than those of any of his predecessors as pope. He is also known as Gregory the Dialogist in Eastern Orthodoxy because of his Dialogues. For this reason, English translations of Orthodox texts will sometimes list him as "Gregory Dialogus". He was the first of the popes to come from a monastic background. Gregory is a Doctor of the Church and one of the six Latin Fathers. He is considered a saint in the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church. Immediately after his death, Gregory was canonized by popular acclaim.

        Primus [-Secundus] liber modulorum quinis vocibus constantium. [Countratenor part only]

      Paris: Adrien le Roy & Robert Ballard. 1571. 2 volumes bound in one. Oblong octavo. 40 ff. in total consisting of 1f. (recto title within elaborate woodcut border, verso large decorative armorial woodcut), 1f. (recto dedication to the publishers, verso first page of music), ff. 3-20 (index to verso of final leaf); 2ff. (as above), ff. 23-40 (privilege to verso of final leaf). Fine large historiated woodcut initials throughout. & & A collection of 34 motets for 5 voices.& & Provenance: The collection of André Meyer (1884-1974).& & Slightly worn and browned; occasional foxing and other minor imperfections; first two leaves reinforced with paper tape to blank outer margins with no loss of text. . First Edition. RISM L845 (1571c), L847 (1571e). Lesure & Thibault nos. 149, 150. & & "[Lassus] was one of the most prolific and versatile of 16th-century composers, and in his time the best-known and most widely admired musician in Europe...." & & The motets of Lassus were admired in their own day not only for their beauty and technical perfection but also for their rhetorical power – their ability to move the affections through the use of rhetorical devices transferred into musical idioms." James Haar in Grove online& & "Lassus at times shows a strong liking for "irregular" harmonic "V-VI" progression... and uses it eloquently in... his five-part Tristis est anima mea [present in this collection], a composition in which Lassus provides a moving setting for Christ's words in the Garden of Gethsamane." Reese: Music in the Renaissance, p. 692. & & A fine example of 16th century music printing from this important Parisian music publisher. The two cousins, Adrien le Roy (ca. 1520-1598) and Robert Ballard (1525-/30-1588) received a royal privilege from King Henry II to print and sell music in 1551; their first publication dates from that year. "The most frequently published composer was Lassus, who was a personal friend of Le Roy. Le Roy & Ballard played an important part in disseminating his newest works in France and in Europe generally... The typographical material was particularly fine. The elaborate woodcut borders on the title-pages, the print4r's marks and the 'lettres grises' or historiated woodcut initials in several sizes in the style of Jean Cousin are superb exampes of French Renaissance graphic arts." Krummel & Sadie p. 161& & The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music, with hundreds of items dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries.

Repertorium in Loculentissimas Praelectiones quas Idem in Quinque Decretalium Libros Divino Prorsus Ingenio, Labore Incredibili & Studio Doctissime Iuxta ac Elegantissime Concinnauit. Ea Quidem in Quinque Diligentia Conflatum, Ut Numerorum Ratione Fidelissime Subducta, Nullibi aut Falli, Aut Decipipossis: Quamlibet in Compluribus Accessionem Certe Incredibilem, Et Depravatorum Emendationem Maxime Necessariam, Hac nota Praesignatam Acceperis. Corseti Etiam Lucubrationes in Nonnullis Impressionibus Omissas, Ad Posteritatis Utilitatem Praestitimus. Venice: [Apud Ioannem de Ghara], 1571. [cl], 44, [12] ff. Main text in parallel columns. Folio (12" x 8-1/4"). Contemporary vellum, early hand-lettered titles to spine and foot of text block, which is neatly detached with pastedowns and well-secured by cords. Moderate edgewear, bowing and spine stains to vellum, locations of cords worn through. Light toning to text, heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves, small worm hole to inner margin of front endleaf and title page, internally clean. * Later edition. Tudeschi, a Benedictine canonist from Sicily, earned his doctorate in canon law at the University of Bologna. He taught at the Universities of Siena, Parma and Bologna. "It was his canonical works, especially his 'Lectura in Decretales' 'In Sextum,' and 'In Clementinas,' that won him the title of 'lucerna juris' (lamp of the law) and insured him great authority; he also wrote 'Consilia,' 'Quaestiones,' 'Repetitiones,' 'Disputationes, Disceptationes et Allegationes,' and 'Flores Utriusque Juris.' A fine edition of his works appeared at Venice in 1477; among later editions...published in 1617-18 (Venice) in 10 folio volumes is especially notable": Catholic Encyclopedia. First published in 1481, Repertorium collects his notes on the fifth books of the Decretals of Gregory IX. Each of these has a reference so it can be used in conjunction with any edition of that work. Complete in itself, this is part of an eight-title series of Tudeschi's works.

      Title printed in red & black. 6 p.l., CCXXXVII, [25] leaves. Small folio, 18th-cent. half-vellum & speckled boards (first few leaves a bit soiled, some inoffensive worming at beginning & end). Nuremberg: D. Gerlach, 1571. Third edition, corrected and enlarged (earlier eds.: 1562 and 1564). Mathesius (1504-65), a close friend of Agricola and Luther, was the first pastor at Joachimsthal, the richest silver mine in Central Europe, located in the heart of the Bohemian mining district known as the Erzegebirge. The present treatise, delivered in the form of sermons, describes the processes of mining iron, copper, silver, gold, and other metals. Mathesius's "sermons on mining topics were extremely popular for he spoke in a 'bergkleuftigen' manner, in the familiar miner's tongue. Mining writer Wolfgang Paul said that these sermons related practical mining problems to Biblical stories 'in order to influence the miners' religious sentiment and the pleasure in the church as well as to deepen their professional interest'."-Hoover, p. 134. The final [25] leaves contain an invaluable historical "chronicle" of Joachimsthal. "Sarepta" at the beginning of the title refers to the ancient Phoencian mining town at the foot of the Lebanon mountains. A very nice and fresh copy. ❧ Ferchl, p. 345-"mit viel berg- und hüttentech."

Although the majority of his published works as translator were not literary, his wider reputation rests with his translation of Ovid's METAMORPHOSIS from the original Latin, which was widely influential on the likes of Marlowe, Spenser, and, of course, Shakespeare. The four missing leaves consist of the conclusion of Golding's "Epistle Dedicatorie" and of the opening of Calvin's Introduction "To the Reader." An uncommon book: ABPC notes only two appearances of copies at auction in the last two decades, both of them significantly imperfect. ESTC S107215. STC 4395.

'De regis institutione et disciplina, dedicado em 1572 a D. Sebastião (segundo resumo de Nair Nazaré de Castro Soares, na sua tese de doutoramento sobre esta obra) segue as normas ético-jurídicas da teorização aristotélico-tomista, imbuída do idealismo ético de Platão - síntese digna de um Cícero. Não fora o célebre bispo de Silves intitulado, sobretudo pelo colorido e vigor da sua frase límpida e ritmada, o Cícero português! Assim se compreende que a obra deste autor, humanista corresponsável na condução da respublica e orientação do seu príncipe, se torne o modelo paradigmático do ideal de príncipe, no século áureo da nossa história. Em suma, o De regis institutione et disciplina, verdadeiro espelho das realidades sociais e políticas do tempo, revela-nos a dimensão do humanismo estético-ideológico de um autor representativo de uma época, a sua concepção de príncipe ideal e a sua forma de encarar a problemática do homem, enquanto ser social e político, e enquanto pessoa, na sua finitude e transcendência'.

        PROKATALEPSIS ODER PRAEOCCUPATIO, DURCH ZWOLFF VERSCHEIDENLICHER TRACT

      1571. THURNEISSER ZUM THURN, Leonhart. PROKATALEPSIS ODER PRAEOCCUPATION, DURCH ZWOLFF VERSCHEIDENLICHER TRACTATEN; GEMACHTER HARM PROBEN. Frankfurt: Johann Eichorn, 1571. First edition. Folio. Pp. [4], lxxxv, [2,1 blank]. Title red and black within an elaborate woodcut border. The first word in the title is transliterated from Greek. Portrait on Aii, framed by strapwork incorporating laboratory equipment and two nudes pouring chemicals. Colophon, on Hiiij recto, p.[lxxxv11]. Ex library, with the only markings being two faint, inconspicuous stamps. Bound in 18th century marbled boards, with new spine. The method of analysis and conclusions described in this book are noted by Johann Carl Moehsen p.72 and by Sprengel (Geschichte der Medicin, Halle, 1827, ii., p.499). Thurneisser or Thurneysser, as well as five other spellings, was born in Basel in 1530. His father was a goldsmith. Arrested for selling gilt lead as gold, Thurneisser fled Basel, fought in the army of Albert of Brandenburg, was captured and imprisoned. By 1558 he was a metallurgist in the Tyrol, then from 1560 to 1570 was sent to many countries by the Archduke Ferdinand to research metallurgy. In 1569 he first published his Archidoxa and in 1570 the Quinta Essentia. He wrote on chemistry, alchemy, meteorology, pharmacology and medicine, making it up as he went along. From 1570 to 1584 he was a physician in the court of the Elector of Brandenburg, who put at his disposal an abbey in Berlin, where he had a laboratory as well as a printing press, employed 300 people, and amassed a large fortune. This he lost in a divorce from his third wife, and left Berlin for Rome, Florence and Cologne. History sees him now as a flamboyant charlatan. (Bibliotheca Chemica, p. 453; D.S.B.).

        Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica acltydrogrphica Tabula

      Willem Blaeu (1571-1638)?Nova Totius Terrarum Orbis Geographica acltydrogrphica Tabula?Amsterdam: 1606Hand-colored copperplate engraving31" x 35" framedThis classic single-sheet world map on Mercator's projection, first brought out by Blaeu in 1606, remained in active circulation, for over 50 years.  It is celebrated as one of the supreme examples of the mapmaker's art and was later reprinted in atlas form.  The most striking characteristics of Blaeu's map are the superb border decorations.  Along the top are allegorical representations of the sun and moon and the five known planets, while each side has four panels illustrating the elements and the four seasons, and along the bottom are seven vignettes showing the seven wonders of the world.  Blaeu maps are immediately recognizable by the beauty of their ornamentation.  Whereas 16th century publishers had decorated their maps with strapwork designs in black and white, Blaeu's maps were embellished with decorative swags, symbols, coats of arms, city views and large pictorial cartouches, and were hand-colored in the Baroque taste. As official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company, Blaeu had access to information regarding geographical discoveries that was unavailable to any of his competitors.  Blaeu published his first world atlas, the Atlantis Appendix, with 60 maps in 1630, and continued to produce new maps at such a rate that by 1634, he abandoned the single volume format and announced his intention to publish a new world atlas, entitled the Theatrum, which became the most monumental cartographic publication of the 17th century.  The acclaim that Blaeu's maps receive is based upon their extremely high production standards and geographical sophistication.  The splendid side decoration is one of Blaeu's most recognizable decorative flourishes, and the quality of the engraving, the paper, and coloring are of the highest order, placing Blaeu's work at the forefront of seventeenth-century cartography.  The maps are embellished in the Baroque style, and many, especially the world map, the centerpiece of the atlas, rank among the most beautiful ever made.

        Istria sotto il Dominio Veneto fra li Colfi Trigestino et Quarner?.

      Tra il 1560 ed 1575 Camocio pubblicò circa quaranta carte di grande formato e molte furono le carte di piccolo formato pubblicate sciolte tra il 1566 e il 1574, che andarono successivamente a formare il volume noto col nome "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". Le carte inserite nell?isolario di Camocio hanno la lastra ritoccata e un numero sequenziale aggiunto, mentre le prime prove sono caratterizzate dalla grande qualità di stampa e dall?assenza del numero. Bibliografia: Tooley?s, Dictionary of Mapmakers, vol. I, p. 228. Dimensioni 210x155. 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? (1574) and bear the Camocio?s name as a publisher.

      Antweriae, ex officina Chistophori Plantini, 1571. 4to (223 x 155mm). pp. (20), 332, (10), with 92 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum (some damage to right upper corner of the frontcover). First Latin edition of this important work on toxicology. The first French edition was published by Plantin in 1568. The present Latin edition was translated from the French by the Augsburg physician Hieremias Martius. Jacques Grevin (c. 1539-1570) was a French poet and dramatist and disciple of Ronsard. "Grevin was originally educated as a physician, and wrote several works on medical and scientific topics. His two books on poisons, while adding nothing new to toxicological knowledge, showed a distinctively skeptical and realistic attitude towards the writings of both classical and modern authors, with whom Grévin often disagreed. He also casts doubt on several superstitious beliefs, such as the efficacy of amulets against poison, or the turquoise's power to detect the presence of toxic substance. Two books on poisons was published with Grevin's verse translation of 'Theriaka' and 'Alexipharmaka', two didactic poems on poisonous plants and animals by the Hellenistic physician Nicander of Colophon (b. ca. A.D. 275)" ('The Haskell F. Norman library of Science & Medicine' 439, quoting the French edition). The excellent woodcuts show snakes, amphibia, scorpions, fish, a dog suffering from rabies, poisonous plants etc. Durling 2174; Nissen ZBI, 1713.
