Reliure postérieure plein maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs richement orné aux petits fers dorés . 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. Malgré cela, la conception cartographique erronée persista sur de nombreuses cartes européennes jusqu'au XVIIIe siècle [Attributes: First Edition; 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.

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.

"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."

'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.

      A fundamental early chronic of Peru, in a splendid Spanish binding. 1571. Seville. Hernando Diaz. In folio (297 mm x 204 mm). 4 ff. + 142 + 130. Contemporary Spanish blind tooled calf, recased, raised bands to spine, gently rubbed. Title to first part with loss of paper to upper margin restored just touching the border of the coat of arms, away from text, right margin as well but away from text, a few scattered foxing spots, Palencia´s signature at beginning and end, a fine copy. First edition, considerably rare; this is one of the most important early chronics on Peru and Latin America. Its rarity may be due to that in March 1572 it ?was forbidden to be circulated and ordered to be destroyed by the Council of the Indies? (Sabin); ?livre fort rare et tres-important? (Leclerc). Fernandez de Palencia (1520 ? 1581) was a Spanish historian, military and conqueror; he arrived in Peru in 1553, shortly after the region´s conquest, and was so an eye witness to the process of colonization. The contents of the work include Gasca´s period as President of the Audiencia of Peru, following the murder of Nuñez de Vela, Hurtado de Mendoza´s government, the insurrection lead by Hernandez Giron & later Pizarro, information on the natives, their administration & customs. Both titles bear large woodcut arms of Spain, the last leaf, as usual, with author´s signature. Sabin, 24133. Palau, 89549. Leclerc, Bibliotheca Americana, 1733.
