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."

Valladolid, Spain, 1571. Contemporary Full Calf. Modern buckram cloth chemise and slipcase. . Good. Folio. 32 by 21 cm. 46 numbered vellum leaves, 49 vellum leaves in total, plus a few paper blanks front and rear. On an early page is a painting of the elaborate Cordoba family coat-of-arms, within which are several towers and armored figures depicted, and radiating out from are 25 banners. Also containing by our count 84 instances of illuminated lettering, most often a single letter but not infrequently a word or more, almost always in either case enclosed in a box or rectangle with other ornamentation surrounding the letter. The manuscript itself is essentially a record of a lawsuit involving the Cordoba family which brought to recover property improperly seized by the city of Talamanca in the collection of tax. In the suit the Cordobas asserted that on account of their nobility they were exempt from taxation. The family was able to establish their noble status and thereby prevail in the lawsuit. Thus the document is strictly speaking, not a straightforward patent of nobility, which is a document that accompanies an ennoblement or elevation in noble status ab initio but rather a testament to noble status that long predates the document. For many, the primary interest of the document, though, is not its literal contents but rather its age and beauty. As to the latter, there is the writing, the illumination and the illustration. The writing is in a Gothic script then in common use but to the untrained eye, quite inscrutable when it comes to reading it. Few wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Blaeu Willem Janszoon ( 1571 - 1638 ) Amsterdam
Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ( - 1638 ) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1620, 1571. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Tear on the left side perfectly restored; - size (in cm): 33 x 20; - description : Title page from the atlas.Toonneel de Aerdrycx oft nieuwe Atlas; - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Horatius Flaccus, Quintus
- Contemporary parchment binding. 120x80 mm, 16º: a-t#8 v#4 (v4 blanco), 308 [2] pp. On title page printer’s mark "Vincenti." Inner hinges broken, damaged title page (rebound), ex libris with pen "A. Bacigaleye,"; "Antonio Sisco M.D., 1715." Words with pen on last flyleaf, Latin text in pen on first flyleaf. These are the complete works by the Latin lyric poet Horace (Horatius) (65 – 8 BC), on the title page referred to as "facile princeps." His work has had a significant impact on the development of poetry in Europe. In 38 BC Horatius was admitted to the literary circle around Maecenas, after he was introduced by Virgil (Vergillius). Horatius was inspired by Greek examples (especially the archaic poets such as Sappho). He rises above the level of his predecessors though by his content and style. Horace’s style is distinguished by a large variety of serious and solemn language to almost everyday speech. His use of words is very precise and therefore his formulation always fits perfectly. For every ode in this publication the meter is chanted (bij elke ode wordt het metrum gescandeerd). This is a reprint of the edition that was published in 1554 by Antoine Vincent Lyon. In the colophon Symphorianus Barbier was listed as the printer of this publication. Rare edition.

MAGGI, Girolamo.
- Hale, Girolamo Maggi, in: Italian studies XL, 1, pp. 31-150. Second edition printed in Amsterdam, annotated and richly illustrated, of two works by the Italian scholar Girolamo Maggi, previously published separately, and originally written while incarcerated in Constantinople in 1571-1572. The author had been able to smuggle in some books and from these started writing De tintinnabulis, the first study on bells in history. Most of the book is dedicated to the history of the use of bells in classical antiquity and in the Islamic world, but a single chapter is devoted to the carillons in the Netherlands. Maggi describes the effect the carillon in Antwerp had on the city's inhabitants, with people jumping around and dancing in their houses and on the squares. Finally he laments the absence of this art form in Italy.During the writing of this treatise, Maggi's books had been taken from him. Subsequently he found inspiration to write a study of the equuleus, an instrument of torture from antiquity used "especially during the Christian persecutions. But was it a sharp-backed wooden horse on which a man was forced to sit while heavy weights were attached to his legs? Or was it not like a horse but like a pyramid? Or was it form of rack?" (Hale) The treatises were sent to the Holy Roman and French ambassadors in Constantinople in a request for aid. Nevertheless Maggi was strangled after an attempted escape, with the treatises being published posthumously in Hanau in 1608-1609.With an owner's inscription dated 1742 and a few marks on the title-page. Binding worn at the extremities … [Click Below for Full Description]

Calvin, Jean.
Apud Bartholomaeum Vincentium, 1571. Early edition of Calvin's lectures on Daniel, edited by Charles de Jonvilliers and Jean Budé and first published in 1561. Leaders like Luther, Calvin, and Melanchthon played a role essential to the Reformation in both legend and reality in interpreting the Bible for its readers; yet while (like the others) he championed the reading of the Scriptures in the vernacular, Calvin chose to present his notes on and explanations of various books of the Bible in the language of scholars -- Latin. In other words, effectively, he still expected the mass of believers to => rely on the intermediation of the clergy to assist them; but his works were => placed on the Index nonetheless, including this book, one of his many exegeses of the Old Testament. The Latin text here is printed in roman and italic with intermittent Hebrew, with decorative woodcut initials throughout. The title-page features the => large printer's device of Bartholomew Vincent. Curiously, most library records for this edition give Geneva as the place of printing, which is wrong. No place is given in the book itself; Vincentius, however, never printed anywhere except in Lyons. Thus, this is the first printing of the Latin text outside of Geneva, for the 1561, 1562, and 1569 edition all appeared there (the 1570 edition was an English-language translation from a London press). Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of lawyer and historian Guido Kisch (1889-1985, son of Rabbi Alexander Kisch and brother of medical historian Dr. Bruno Kisch), with inked inscription … [Click Below for Full Description]
