DU BELLAY (Martin)
Paris, Pierre L'Huillier, 1571. 1 fort vol. petit in-8°, basane brune jaspée, dos à nerfs orné de caissons dorés. Reliure de la fin du XVIIe siècle, coiffes restaurées, mors sup. fendu sur qq. cm., qq. cahiers déboîtés. Ex-libris ms. Garnier feudiste au contreplat. (8) ff., 481 ff. mal chiffrés 289, (14) ff. de table, (1) f. comprenant 1 fleuron typographique. Signatures : at8 [a-z]8 [A-Z]8 [Aa-Qq]8. Quelques ff. effrangés en début de vol., galeries de vers marginales, atteignant rarement le texte. Première édition in-8°, imprimée par le même libraire que l'édition originale in-folio de 1569. Ces mémoires sont écrits dans un style naïf et souvent plaisant et couvrent la période de 1513 à 1547. Bien que partiaux (Montaigne les trouve trop favorables à François Ier), ils sont précieux pour qui s'intéresse à cette période, car les frères Du Bellay occupaient des positions éminentes sous le règne de François Ier. Guillaume, homme de guerre et diplomate fut nommé vice-roi du Piémont en 1537. Fin politique, il était informé de nombreux secrets d'Etat, et du Piémont, renseignait le roi sur ce qui se passait ou devait se passer en Flandre ou en Picardie Martin, également homme de guerre, était au fait de toutes les campagnes entreprises à cette époque. Guillaume et Martin étaient les oncles du poète Joachim du Bellay. Ce qui reste des Mémoires de Guillaume occupe les livres 5, 6 et 7, compris dans les Mémoires de Martin (le reste est perdu). Brunet I, 747; FVB, 16982.

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.

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.
