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: Very good; - size (in cm): 38 x 48; - description: Map shows total Catalonia. - 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 in Bloemgracht, not including engravers who … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 ?)

Fletus et risus figure dans l'Alciat de 1547 et Inimici dans la Métamorphose de 1557. Dans Vulpes et Ciconia (N° 208, page 247), non pas la version de 1547 où l'on voit la cigogne insérer son bec dans le vase, mais celle où elle cherche maladroitement à boire dans une flaque d'eau, la forme du renard est bien de Salomon, et d'autres détails, comme le bec ouivert de l'oiseau font penser à lui. 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.

LATIMER, HUGH
London: John Day, 1571 [i.e., 1572]. Apparently the FIRST PRINTING of this collection. This is an especially appealing unsophisticated copy of a collection of compelling sermons by one of the moving forces in the reform movement in England. From his position as bishop of Worcester and advisor to Henry VIII, Latimer (ca. 1485-1555) exerted a remarkable influence in the rise of English Protestantism. According to Britannica, it was "the preaching of Latimer more than the edicts of Henry that established the principles of the Reformation in the minds and hearts of the people; and from his preaching, the movement received its chief color and complexion. . . . It is possible to learn from them more regarding the social and political condition of the period than perhaps from any other source, for they abound, not only in exposures of religious abuses, and of the prevailing corruptions of society, but in references to many varieties of social injustice and unwise customs, in racy sketches of character, and in vivid pictures of special features of the time." Though Latimer has been seen as accommodating his religious views to Henry's political purposes, his sermons reflect considerable courage in that they attack corruption and hypocrisy in churchmen of all denominations. Like others in the forefront of the English Reformation, Latimer was subject to turbulent reversals of fortune, and when Mary ascended to the throne, he was defined as a heretic and died in flames. According to Oldham, binder F. D. was active in London from 1554 to 1580 and was almost certainly a German immigrant … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
