Blaeu Willem Janszoon (1571 - 1638) Amsterdam
Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ( - 1638) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1635. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Some folds; - size (in cm): 38 x 49,5; - description: A striking full color example of Iceland. A stunning map, including an erupting volcano, sea monsters, sailing ships, decorative cartouches, compass rose and the spectacular landscape of Iceland. Carolius used Mercator's version of Bishop Gudbrandur Thorlaksson's map as his source. Nice wide margined example, in striking color.A fine map of Iceland, based on a map by Joris Carl (1601-25), a pilot from Enkhuizen. It is decorated with an ornate title cartouche, a pair of compass roses, a galleon and seamonsters. This map is one of the symbols of the intense rivalry between Jansson and Blaeu. Joris Carl's map was first engraved by Jodocus Hondius II (son of the firm's founder and Jansson's brother-in-law). When Jodocus died in 1629 many of his plates were sold to Willem Blaeu, who added his name to the plates and used them to publish his first atlas in 1630. Angered by the sale, Jansson had the Hondius plates slavishly copied. This plate, which only differs from Blaeu's by the lack of his name under the title, was first issued the same year. The lack of text on verso suggests this could be the first issue, from the 'Atlantis Maioris Appendix'. KOEMAN: Me 31a. Iceland is a Nordic island country in the North Atlantic. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active. According to the ancient manuscript Landnámabók, the settlement of Iceland began in 874 AD when the Norwegian c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blaeu Willem Janszoon (1571 - 1638) Amsterdam
Artist: Blaeu Willem Janszoon ( - 1638) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1610. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Some restoration at centerfold; - size (in cm): 35 x 48; - description: Map shows the west coast of Mexico with Guadalajara - vita of the artist: Joan Guilliemus Blaeu was the eldest son of Willem Janszoon Blaeu (1571-1638), and was probably born in Alkmaar in the province of Noord-Holland in the final years of the 16th century. He was brought up in Amsterdam, and studied law at the University of Leiden before going into partnership with his father in the 1630s. Although his father Willem had cartographic interests, having studied under the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe and having manufactured globes and instruments, his primary business was as a printer. It was under the control of Joan that the Blaeu printing press achieved lasting fame by moving towards the printing of maps and expanding to become the largest printing press in Europe in the 17th century.By the 1660s the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (or Atlas Maior as it had became known by this time) had expanded to between 9 and 12 volumes, depending on the language. With over 3,000 text pages and approximately 600 maps, it was the most expensive book money could buy in the later 17th century. The translation of the text from Latin into Dutch, English, German, French, and Spanish for several volumes created enormous work for those involved in typography and letterpress activities. It is estimated that over 80 men must have been employed full-time in the Blaeu printing house … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUCHANAN, George.
London: printed by John Day, [1571]. Small octavo (143 x 97 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, sides with gilt supralibros of a Tudor rose and the intials A.G. within a gilt frame, lacks ties. Modern folding case by J. F. Newman & Son of Dublin. Early ownership inscription to title; modern collector's bookplate of Howard Knohl. Vellum wrinkled at front fore edge, spine darkened, two small marks to title, a little browning to upper margins of first gathering (perhaps sometime reinserted), short closed tear at foot of M3, paper generally clean and strong, wide outer margins, retaining a few uncut fore edges, very good. Complete with final blank, Y4. First edition thus, a translation in Scots dialect of Buchanan's De Maria Scotorum Regina, from the Latin edition printed the same year, but including a number of items not in the Latin edition. Buchanan's attack on Mary may have been written under political instructions and certainly contains false allegations. In the wake of the rising of the northern earls in late 1569 and Elizabeth's excommunication in 1570, it was printed in both Latin and Scots by John Day, always keen to publish political tracts helpful to the regime, to justify Mary's continued incarceration in England.

Giovanni Francesco CAMOCIO (Attivo a Venezia tra 1558 - 1575)
In alto a destra, in un ovale ornato con fregi, il titolo Sardegna. Carta priva di graduazione ai margini, scala grafica e di orientazione che risulta in base all'immagine orientata con l'ovest in alto. Carta non datata. La carta del Camocio, pur essendo posteriore alla mappa del Licinio, non apporta novità per quanto riguarda i contenuti geo-cartografici. Scarsamente curata nell'incisione e nei dati geografici, nessun fiume viene indicato con il nome, diversi gli errori di trascrizione dei toponimi, anche l'orografia non è particolarmente curata. Questa carta fu inserita successivamente, e numerata come tavola 77, nell'opera 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.

Lugduni : Apud Guliel. Rouillium, 1571.

Joachim Camerarius l'Ancien - Bamberg, 12 avril 1500, Leipzig, 17 avril 1574 - Erudit allemand - Issu d'une famille dont le premier nom était Liebhard, et qui avait reçu le surnom de Camerarius, parce que plusieurs de ses membres avaient été chambellans. Il se fit de bonne heure connaître par des ouvrages érudits, enseigna le grec et le latin à Nuremberg (1526), et réorganisa les universités de Tubingue (1550) et de Leipsick (1552). Il joua aussi un grand rôle dans les affaires politiques et religieuses, embrassa un des premiers la réforme, se lia étroitement avec Philippe Melanchthon, l'aida à rédiger la Confession d'Augsbourg, fut chargé par le sénat de Nuremberg de plusieurs missions importantes, et jouit d'un grand crédit auprès des empereurs Charles Quint et Maximilien d'Autriche, ainsi que des ducs de Saxe Henri et Maurice.On lui doit :des traductions latines d'un grand nombre d'auteurs grecs, tels qu'Homère, Hérodote, Xénophon, Aristote, Sophocle, Thucydide, Démosthène, etcBernard Salomon (v. 1506-1561 ?)

L'attribution de certaines autres gravures est moins sûre, par exemple De Avecula et messe (N° 488, page 470) qui figure un homme avec un rateau pourrait être de lui, mais un autre personnage assis qui est trop trapu, et, bien que l'arbre soit plutôt convainquant, le ciel et le paysage ne lui appartiennent pasSALOMON : Bernard Salomon (v. 1506-1561 ?) - Dit aussi le Petit Bernard, B.

This treatise was posthumously published by Sebastiano Erizo and reprinted several times, with at least three editions in the 19th century. - Handwritten ownership of Andrea da Verrazzano on flyleaf.

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 star … [Click Below for Full Description]
