        Autricum, Prolemeo in Gallia Lugdunensis Urbs; vulgo, cum Villa nouano, Chartres / Chasteaudunum, Comitatus vulgo Dunoys in Gallia Oppidum primorium

      Braun & Hogenberg, Cologne - Two bird's-eye plans on one sheet. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13" x 18.75" These two bird's-eye plans on one sheet depict the French cities of Chartres and Châteaudun. Chartres is shown from the southeast, with its famous cathedral at the center of the frame towering over the comparatively diminutive city around it. This prized church became the model for many other Gothic churches and is nearly synonymous with the city in which it is located. A number of lesser churches are also shown in detail, as are houses, fields, and gardens. Similarly detailed is the map of Châteaudun, shown from the east as to clearly illustrate how the city leans up against the ridge of the hill to its right. This city's prominent buildings are the 12th-century chateau at the top right and the church of La Madeleine at the upper left. Its seal and coat of arms are also rendered. he print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. Latin text on verso. The plans are in very good condition with some overall toning and wear to the title of the Chartres view. Chips in the margins not affecting the image. Some mat burn and margin folds from being previously framed. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. These views demonstrate the high quality of their work.

Complete works of Samuel Marolois (1572-1627), including the works of his predecessor Jan Vredeman de Vries (1527-ca. 1606/08) that were edited with numerous additions by Marolois. Marolois was a French mathematician, who published in the Low Countries and taught Henricus Hondius. Here all the works are edited, corrected and revised by Albert Girard, who also revised the mathematical works of Simon Stevin. Marolois's Geometria presents a thorough pictorial course of all aspects of geometry and its application to measurement, proportion, surveying, perspective, etc. His Fortificationis , first published at The Hague in 1615, represents the most outstanding text book, richly illustrated, on the Dutch art of fortification at the beginning of the 17th century. Vredeman de Vries's Architectura , originally the third volume of his Perspectiva , gives a pictorial course in the basic rules of architectural design, with plates by De Vries and his most gifted pupil and successor, Hendrik Hondius (1573-1650). The text consists mainly of the explanations of the plates.In good condition, with the lower outside corner of the first part of the second volume frayed, without affecting the text; some minor water stains and foxing. Bindings worn but skillfully repaired. Rare early editions of Marolois's works, issued with a general title-page and in a contemporary binding.

        Gregorio XIII

      1572 - Bulino, 1572 circa, privo di firma e dati editoriali. Bella impressione, nitida e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana "doppia stella nel cerchio", margini di circa 1,5 – 2 cm, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nella parte inferiore dell’immagine, una didascalia in latino su due righe 'Gregorius XIII Pont Max Assumptis Pontificalibus insignis quod coronationis munus nuncupatur populo benedicens vaticanum ingreditur VIII KAL M.D.LXXII' La scesa rappresenta papa Gregorio XIII, al secolo Ugo Boncompagni, sulla sedia gestatoria che benedice la folla, mentre fa il suo ingresso in Vaticano, il 24 giugno 1572. Il cardinale Boncompagni, bolognese fu eletto pontefice il 13 maggio del 1572, il giorno di S. Gregorio Magno, per cui scelse per sé il nome del santo. Com'è noto, Gregorio XIII riformò il calendario giuliano, allora in vigore, da allora denominato calendario gregoriano; mentre splendida testimonianza dei suoi interessi scientifici, storici e letterari è la Galleria delle carte geografiche in Vaticano, oggi inserita nel percorso dei Musei. La Galleria è lunga 120 metri, larga 6. Le pareti sono per intero ricoperte dalla rappresentazione delle regioni d’Italia nella restituzione cartografica del grande matematico e geografo Egnazio Danti. La stessa lastra verrà utilizzata da De Cavalleris, per l’insediamento di Sisto V, successore di Gregorio XIII, nel 1585, correggendo lo stemma araldico, la data e il nome del Pontefice. L’abrasione della lastra è visibile e lascia intravedere il testo sottostante. Interessante e rara opera. Engraving, ca. 1572, without date and signature. Lettered along bottom 'Gregorius XIII Pont Max Assumptis Pontificalibus insignis quod coronationis munus nuncupatur populo benedicens vaticanum ingreditur VIII KAL M.D.LXXII' A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with watermark "double star", and margins of about 150/200 mm, in a very good condition. The scene depicts pope Gregorius XIII, seated on the gestatorial-chair, giving his blessing to his loyal and devoted supporters. Cardinal Ugo Boncompagni was elected pope on May 13, 1572 after a one-day conclave. He is best known for commissioning and being the namesake for the Gregorian calendar, which remains the internationally accepted civil calendar to this day. Splendid testimony of his scientific historical and literary interests, is the Gallery of Maps in the Vatican. The same plate was late printed by De Cavalleris in 1585, in honor of Sisto V.

        Rime

      Comin da Trino, 1572. 8vo (151x102 mm). (15, lacking the first blank leaf), 121 [i.e. 126, leaves 54, 63, 64, 107 and 108 repeated in numbering], (6) leaves. With a woodcut device on the title-page and at the end. Contemporary vellum, spine covered by a red paper with label and ink title, slightly rubbed and worn, a good and genuine copy. FIRST EDITION (variant issue in which the blank leaf Q7 is replaced by a bifolium containing a sonnet by Domenico Venier and the errata). The volume is dedicated by Celio Magno to Giulio Contarini (Zara, October 20, 1572) and also contains a life of Molino written by the painter Giovanni Mario Verdizzotti, a pupil of Titian. This verse collection represents a kind of summa of the Venetian neo-Petrarchism and contains at the end a "tombeau poétique' in Molino's memory, including verses by Lauro Badoer, Girolamo Fioretti, Federico Frangipane, Giorgio Gradenigo, Pietro Gradenigo, Nicolò Macheropio, Celio Magno, Domenico Vernier, and some anonymous authors (cf. E. Taddeo, Il manierismo letterario e i lirici veneziani del tardo Cinquecento, Rome, 1974, pp. 73-91). "Nel 1569 muore Girolamo Molino. Gli amici, Domenico Venier in primo luogo, promuovono la pubblicazione delle sue rime; Celio Magno le dedica a Giulio Contarini. Il compito di scrivere la vita dell'autore è affidata al Verdizotti. Anche in questo caso egli coglie l'occasione per dare al libro un particolare sapore. Si celebra la collaborazione fra grandi personaggi di generazioni diverse: si ricorda l'amicizia del giovane Molino con i vecchi maestri, il Bembo, Triphon Gabriele, il Trissino, e con personaggi illustri, con cui minore era lo stacco generazionale, come Domenico Venier, il Navagero, Daniele Barbaro, Bernardo Cappello, Luigi Cornaro, lo Speroni, Bernardo Tasso, Giulio Camillo. Il Verdizotti ricorda anche che l'amore per la poesia volgare conviveva nel Molin con l'interesse per la pittura, la scultura, la musica, e che anche conosceva la lingua ebraica, oltre al greco e al latino. Interessante è anche il ritratto morale del personaggio, non si sposa per non turbare l'otium degli studi letterari, ma non è certo insensibile al fascino delle belle donne; accetta raramente incarichi pubblici, ma si indigna per il cattivo uso che altri ne fanno: si arrabbiava, scrive il Verdizotti, contro coloro che "carichi di ricchezza e ornati di grande autorità, non facessero molte cose degne di loro, come si può tener per certo ch'egli fatto haverebbe'. La vita del Molin scritta dal Verdizotti tende dunque a tramutarsi nella celebrazione di un ambiente, nella appassionata rievocazione di un momento magico della vita culturale veneziana" (L. Bolzoni, La stanza della memoria. Modelli letterari e iconografici nell'età della stampa, Turin, 1995, p. 36). "Since musical activity in Venier's salon functioned as a pastime rather than a central activity, and since the academy kept no formal records of its meetings, concrete evidence of links between musicians and men of letters is scarce... Among literati the most intriguing link may be found in the figure of Molino, Venier's aristocratic poet friend and acquaintance of Parabosco. Molino's stature in Venetian society was considerable, despite family battles that cost him an extended period of poverty and travail. A bust sculpted by Alessandro Vittoria for the tiny Cappella Molin in Santa Maria del Giglio - where a great number of reliquaries owned by the family are still preserved - portrays Molino as the embodiment of gerontocratic wisdom. In 1573 his posthumous biographer, Giovan Mario Verdizzotti, wrote that of all the arts Molino had delighted in understanding music most of all. The remark is supported by earlier evidence. Several composers based in Venice and the Veneto - Jean Gero, Francesco Portinaro, and Antonio Molino (no relation) - set Molino's seemingly little-accessible verse to music before its publication in 1573, four years after the poet's death... Molino himself may have performed solo song, as Stampa seems to hint in a sonnet dedicated to him with the words "Qui convien sol la tua cetra, e "l tuo canto, / Chiaro Signor' ("Here only your lyre is fitting, and your song, / eminent sir'). In Petrarchan poetry the idea of singing, and singing to the lyre, is of course a metaphorical adaptation of classical convention to mean simply poetizing, without intent to evoke real singing and playing. But Stampa's poems make unusual and pointed separations between the acts of "scrivere' and "cantare' that suggest she meant real singing here. Other contemporaries specifically point up Molino's knowledge of theoretical and practical aspects of music. In 1541, Giovanni del Lago dedicated his extensive collection of musical correspondence to Molino, whom he declared held "the first degree in the art of music' ("nell'arte di Musica tiene il primo grado'). Further, he claimed, "Your Lordship... merits... the dedication of the present epistles, in which are contained various questions about music... And certainly one sees that few today are found (like you) learned... in such a science, but yet adorned with kindness and good morals'. Del Lago's correspondence was theoretically oriented in church polyphony. One of its most striking aspects is its recognition of connections between music and language that parallel those embodied in the new Venetian madrigal style. Del Lago insisted that vernacular poetry be complemented with suitable musical effects and verbal syntax with musical phrasing. In discussing these relationships he developed musically the Ciceronian ideals of propriety and varietas. His dedication to Molino therefore presents a fascinating bridge between patronage in Venier's circle and developments in Venetian music. Yet taken in sum these sources show Molino's musical patronage embracing two different traditions, each quite distinct: one, the arioso tradition of improvisers and frottolists; the other, the learned tradition of church polyphonists.

      Adams L300; Caillet 6237; Dorbon 2509 ("très rare"); cf. "Of ghosts and spirits walking by night by Ludwig Lavater, 1572" at: British Library online. Second edition of the Latin translation of a work on ghosts, phantoms and apparitions of people who have passed away, written by the Swiss theologian Ludwig Lavater (1527-1586). Besides ghosts, it deals with strange sounds, voices, inexplicable events and peculiar accidents occurring after someones death. Lavater denies that souls or ghosts of the dead could appear. If someone does see these apparitions, he should be aware that they aren't the souls of the deceased, but the work of demons. "As a Protestant, Lavater rejected the idea of Purgatory... as an outdated Catholic concept. This greatly complicated the idea of 'ghosts', often thought to be visitations by human souls that were not at rest, such as those who died unbaptized or in tragic or violent circumstances. Without Purgatory, ghosts could only be visitations from Heaven or Hell. Lavater felt they were more likely to have come from Hell, and this meant that many ghosts were demonic and their requests dangerous: they could be trying to lure humans into damnation, for example by persuading them to commit murder or suicide" (British Library).Minor water stain in the lower and upper margins of the last 40 leaves and in the upper margins of the first 15 leaves, otherwise a very good copy.

        Autricum, Prolemeo in Gallia Lugdunensis Urbs; vulgo, cum Villa nouano, Chartres / Chasteaudunum, Comitatus vulgo Dunoys in Gallia Oppidum primorium

      Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. Two bird's-eye plans on one sheet. Copper engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13" x 18.75" These two bird's-eye plans on one sheet depict the French cities of Chartres and Châteaudun. Chartres is shown from the southeast, with its famous cathedral at the center of the frame towering over the comparatively diminutive city around it. This prized church became the model for many other Gothic churches and is nearly synonymous with the city in which it is located. A number of lesser churches are also shown in detail, as are houses, fields, and gardens. Similarly detailed is the map of Châteaudun, shown from the east as to clearly illustrate how the city leans up against the ridge of the hill to its right. This city's prominent buildings are the 12th-century chateau at the top right and the church of La Madeleine at the upper left. Its seal and coat of arms are also rendered. he print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. Latin text on verso. The plans are in very good condition with some overall toning and wear to the title of the Chartres view. Chips in the margins not affecting the image. Some mat burn and margin folds from being previously framed. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. These views demonstrate the high quality of their work.

        Die neuwen inseln so hinder Hispanien gegen Orient bey dem Land Indie ligen

      Heinrich Petri, Basel 1572 - Map. Uncolored woodcut. Sheet measures 12" x 15.25" This important and influential 1572 map by Sebastian Munster is the first map to show North America and South America in their true continental forms. It is also significant in that it names the Pacific Ocean (Mare Pacificum) and the first printed map to ever show Japan (Zipangri), here appearing based on the accounts of Marco Polo. First published in 1544 in his Basel edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", this map made several appearances in about 40 subsequent editions in 6 different languages. This particular map is the 13th state and appeared in the 1572 German edition of Munster's "Cosmographia". The map established some notable cartographic conventions of the time. Most notable is the oddly shaped North America without the California landmass. Florida, clearly identifiable, is connected by a narrow isthmus to "Francisca" further north east. Presumably so named after Francis I who sponsored Verrazano's expedition. This reflects the belief at the time of the Sea of Verrazano, a possible route to the West Indies. Yucatan appears as an island and Temistian empties into the Caribbean. A more recognizable South America depicts a bulging northwest and notes the region supposedly inhabited by Cannibals in modern day Brazil, with a vignette depicting human body parts. The map includes a very early appearance of the Straits of Magellan. Magellan's ship 'Victoria' also appears in the Pacific. A Spanish flag is seen flying on Puerto Rico while a Portuguese Flag appears in the South Atlantic, depicting their respective influence in the New World. Munster's inclusion of this map in his popular 1544 edition of "Cosmpgraphia" is also believed to have sealed the fate of "America" as the name for the New World. The map is in good condition with minor foxing at places. Minor wear along original centerfold and verso repair near top center margin. Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477. Professor Sebastian Munster (1488-1552) was a German cosmographer, humanist, theologian and scholar. His seminal work "Cosmographia" was published in numerous languages and is considered the most popular book of the 16th century. Furthermore, Munster is also credited with contributing to a revival of geography in Germany. This example is an exceptional example of this influential map.

Ein Jahr später fertigte er eine detaillierte Karte von Leeuwarden an, die von Pieter Bast gedruckt wurde. Von 1604 bis 1608 beaufsichtigte er die Anlage der Festungen in Bourtange, Delfzijl und Bellingwolde. Etwa 1610 zog er nach Bunde. Das Bunder Neuland war seit 1604 mit Hilfe Amsterdamer Investoren eingepoldert worden. 1616 wurde Sems bei Einpolderungen bei Bredstedt hinzugezogen und beteiligte sich am Kanalsystem von Christianshavn auf Amager, kehrte aber 1618 zurück, um Grenzstreitigkeiten bei Ter Apel mit der Provinz Drente zu klären. 1621 war er wieder in Bunderneuland. Der Polder war inzwischen eine Art "Niemandsland" , was zu Streitereien zwischen dem Niederländern und Graf Enno III. führte. Ostfriesland stand aber schon seit Jahren unter derart niederländische Herrschaft, dass Enno sogar die Aufnahme Ostfrieslands in die Niederlande beantragte. Dies scheiterte jedoch an den Landständen. Im dreißigjährigen Krieg nutzen die Niederländer Ostfriesland allerdings als winterlichen Versorgungsstützpunkt und quartierten, ohne dass Enno irgendetwas hätte unternehmen können, ab 1622 die gefürchteten Truppen des Söldners Ernst von Mansfeld im Lande ein. 1623 befand sich Sems in Groningen und gab im gleichen Jahr sein Buch De arithmetische fundamenten in Emden heraus. Um diese Zeit wurde er auch zum Deichgrafen von Bunderneuland ernannt. 1625 wurde sein Polder bei Bredstedt durch eine Sturmflut wieder zerstört. 1626 erhielt er den Auftrag eine Karte vom Gebiet nördlich von Pieterburen zu zeichnen und zwei Jahre später arbeitete er am Festungsbau in Westerwolde mit. Er geriet aber zunehmend in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten, so dass von 1629 bis 1632 seine Einnahmen gepfändet wurden. 1635 starb er, nachdem er sich kurze Zeit in Niederländisch-Brasilien an Festungbauten beteiligt hatte.

        Traité élémentaire de paléontologie ou histoire naturelle des animaux fossiles, considérés dans leurs rapports zoologiques et géologiques.Geneva, Jules-Guillaume Fick, 1844-1846. 4 volumes. 8vo. With 73 lithographed plates (1 hand-coloured, as published). Contemporary half tanned sheepskin, marbled sides.

      BMC NH, p. 1572; Dean II, p. 266; Nissen ZBI, 3176; Ward 1777 (Paris issue); Zittel, pp. 366-367; cf. Wood, p. 519 (2nd edition). First edition of an influential handbook on palaeontology by the Swiss zoologist and paaleontologist François Jules Pictet de la Rive (1809-1872), illustrated with 73 lithographed plates containing numerous smaller illustrations. Pictet starts with an introduction to paleontology, and continues to discuss the fossils of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, molluscs and plants."Feeling the want of a hand-book, he prepared his Traité élémentaire de paléontologie (4 vols. 1844-1846). In the first edition Pictet, while adopting the hypothesis of successive creations of species, admitted that some may have originated through the modification of pre-existing forms. In his second edition (1853-1857) he enters further into the probable transformation of some species, and discusses the independence of certain faunas, which did not appear to have originated from the types which locally preceded them" (Encyclopaedia Britannica).Each volume with the ca. 1880 bookplate of the Portuguese palaeontologist Paul Choffat (1849-1919) and the slightly later stamp of Jean Cuaz. Slightly browned and foxed, with the "explication des planches" of volume 1 (pp. 369-371) loosely inserted. Bindings rubbed along the extremities and slightly worn at the top and bottom of the spine, but otherwise in good condition.

      Gedruckt zu Augspurg, durch Mattheum Francken (Matthias Franck), 1572. - 9 Bll. ("Vorrede an den Liebhaber diser Kunst"), 382 num. Bll. [= 764 S.], Titel in rot/schwarz, Titelrückseite mit blattgroßem Wappenholzschnitt u. 117 kleinere Holzschnitte im Text, 8°, Goldgepr. Leder d. Zt. mit vier Bünden Vgl. VD 16, R 1146-47; Houzeau-Lancaster 2658 (ob eine von H.-L. genannte EA von 1568 existiert ist strittig u. wird auch in anderen Bibliografien nicht erwähnt); Adams R 357; Zinner 2501; Honeyman 2626. - Bedeutendes, sehr frühes astrologisches Werk in deutscher Sprache, nach dem Erstdruck von 1569 erschienen innerhalb von 8 Jahren fünf Aufl. Unter dem Titelanfang „Astronomia Teutsch", erschienen allerdings, auch früher, mehrere Schriften unterschiedlichem Inhalts. - Der Astronom u. Mathematiker Nicolaus Rensberger (1566-1576) vertrat im Gegensatz zum Determinismus die Auffassung, dass die Astrologie ein göttliches Werkzeug sei, um (im christlichen Sinn) ein besserer Mensch zu werden. Denn die Berechnungen bieten die Möglichkeit, angeborene Eigenschaften durch Selbsterkenntnis zum Besseren zu wenden. Die Weiterführung dieses Gedankens machte die moderne psychologische Astrologie erst möglich. Allerdings sind im vorliegenden Werk auch Texte anderer Autoren zusammengetragen. Das "Verzeichnis der Drucke des 16. Jh." nennt die Astronomen Johann Dryander, Jakob Köbel, Johannes Stöffler u. Johannes Eichmann. So sind einige Texte u. Holzschnitte dem bereits um 1550 erschienen Buch von Johannes Regiomontanus "Temporal. Des weitberühmten M. Johann Küngisperger natürlicher Kunst der Astronomey kurtzer Begriff [.]" (VD 16 M 6577) entnommen. - Das Werk besteht aus 4 Teilen: (I) Wie man soll rechnen den Mitteln und waren Lauf der Planeten. [Planetenlauf und Kalender für 1500-1606. Finsternisse. Erwählung der Häuser. Wirkung der 12. Zeichen und 7 Planeten. Jahresherrscher. Sternverzeichnis. Revolutio anni.]; (II) Das ander Buch. Das Buch von der Revolutionen der Jaren der Welt / Und was die Planeten bedeuten [.]. [Deutung der Revolutio anni und Jahresherrscher.]; (III) Das dritte Buch / oder Tractat / zeigt an / ein kurtzen un gerechten weg [.] [Judicium der Nativität durch N. Rensberger.]; (IV) Das vierdte Buch / Darinne wirdt angeziegt / wann der effect der Sternen wircken werde [.] [Deutung der künftigen Jahre aus dem Horoskop.]. - Im ersten Teil: 27 Seiten in rot/schwarz gedruckt (u.a. mit "Sonnenlauff"-Tafeln). Die Textholzschnitte zeigen die versch. Phasen der Sonnen- u. Mondfinsternisse von 1501-1605. In einer alten Titelaufnahme wird eine Planetenscheibe erwähnt, die fast immer fehlt. Wir haben keinen bibliographischen Nachweis gefunden, dass eine Scheibe vorhanden sein muss. In den Ausgaben von 1569 u. 1575 nach dem Titelblatt noch 2 ungezählte Bll., in denen der Verfasser das Buch einer Persönlichkeit der Zeit widmet (1569 "Herrn Waldrico Probsten", 1575 "Christoff Bernharten von Senholtzdorff"). Diese 2 Bll. fehlen in der vorliegenden Ausgabe. - Es handelt sich hier um eine Dublette der Augsburger Staatsbibliothek im geprägten Schweinsledereinband, die regulär in den Verkauf gelangte. Einband fleckig, bestossen u. beschabt; unteres Kapital mit Ausriss; Schließbänder fehlen; Vorsatz mit Dublettenstempel; Titel mit kl. Bibl.-Stempel; Blatt 8 mit kl. Papierläsur u. Buchstabenverlust; eine min. Randbeschädigung; wenige Spuren von Wurmfraß (ohne Textberührung); wenige Seitenränder mit schwachen Feuchtigkeitsrändern, sonst ein erstaunlich frischer u. guter Buchblock. Trotz der versch. Ausgaben selten.
