        GENEALOGIE ET LA FIN DES HUGUENAUX, et découverte du Calvinisme

      Benoist Rigaud à Lyon 1572 - In-12 de 157 pages relié en velin avec 4 lacets. Coiffe supérieure un peu usée, petites déchirures, quelques petites taches, mais bon exemplaire. Deux bois gravés: l'un représentant les guenons au pied de la croix se moquant du lion, l'autre, le Diable régnant sur les guenons. Ce livre est un véritable appel au meurtre: il bestialise les protestants (les hu-guenaux) en les transformant en guenons (hu-guenons); le lion (les lyonnais) a le droit de les exterminer, puisque le Diable règne sur elles. Le représentant du Diable est ici Nostradamus. Cet appel au meurtre sera suivi d'effet puisque une semaine après le massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy commenceront les Vêpres lyonnaises. Les protestants, piégés par le gouverneur Mandelot, se font massacrer dans tout Lyon, et notamment dans la prison de Roanne, sur le site de laquelle est édifié le Palais de Justice (les XXIV colonnes). La rue qui relie la cathédrale au Palais de Justice s'appelle toujours rue Mandelot. Les protestants doivent apprécier. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Compendio das Chronicas da Ordem de Nossa Senhora do Carmo.

      (Lisbon), Antonio Gonçalvez, 1572. - Title-page with woodcut border comprised of caryatids, flowers and fruit. Full-page woodcut of the Carmelite arms on the final leaf. Large woodcut initials. Text in 2 columns. (10 ll.), 220 pp., (1 l.). Folio (28.2 x 19 cm), eighteenth-century (third quarter?) mottled sheep, spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments (a few pinpoint wormholes), crimson leather lettering piece in second compartment from head, gilt short title, text block edges rouged. Four small holes in title page, touching a few letters without loss. Minor worming at fore-edge, not affecting text. Mild dampstain on a few leaves. Overall in very good condition. Stamps of the Duques de Lafões on verso of title-page and on first leaf of main text. ---- FIRST and ONLY (?) EDITION of this Carmelite chronicle, followed (in Book 2) by precepts, exhortations and rules for living. After flourishing in England during the thirteenth century, the Carmelite Order spread throughout Europe. A separate and distinct branch, the Barefoot Carmelites, was formed after St. Theresa of Ávila instituted monasteries and nunneries with much stricter rules of observance. This reformed branch did not enter Portugal until the 1580s, but the original Order was popular there in the mid-sixteenth century, and by the late sixteenth century, had more monasteries than any other religious order in Portugal except the Jesuits and Franciscans. Chapters 19-21 of Book 1 (pp. 76-92) chronicle the history of the Carmelites in Portugal and the exploits of the fourteenth-century feudal lord, Nuno Álvarez Pereira, who is said to have introduced the Order into Portugal.@Provenance: Collection of the Duques de Lafões. The second Duque de Lafões, D. João Carlos de Bragança Sousa Ligne Tavares Mascarenhas da Silva (1719-1806) was of the closest possible affinity to the royal house: his father was the legitimized son of D. Pedro II. A nobleman of great talent and public spirit, he led the aristocratic opposition to the Marques de Pombal. He was also a man of great culture, and while living in exile during Pombal's tenure assisted both Gluck and Mozart. In the quarter-century after Pombal's fall, the Duque de Lafões became a dominant public figure, holding high public offices and founding the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa to assure that Portugal would share the benefits of the Enlightenment. (See Castro e Almeida, @Lista de ex-libris heráldicos portugueses 205, and @Grande enciclopedia XIV, 543-5.)

        Odysseia (Greek): Odyssea. Eiusdem Batrachomyomachia, Hymni, aliaq(ue) eius opuscula, seu catalecta. Edited by Hubert van Giffen

      Strassburg: [ca. 1572]. 8vo (183 x 115 mm). Collation: *8 A-Z Aa-Zz Aaa-Fff8 Ggg10 hhh8 iii10 (inner bifolium of sheet Ggg misbound between iiii5 and iii6). [8 leaves], 837, [1] pp., [25] leaves. Rihel?'s woodcut device on title, woodcut initials. Editor?'s dedication to Count Ludwig von Oettingen (*2r-A1v). Text in Greek on versos, in Latin on facing rectos. Shoulder-notes. Scholia and Latin index at end. First few leaves slightly spotted, one or two minor marginal dampstains. Bound in contemporary German green silk velvet over laminated paper boards, sewn on four double cords, the covers blocked in gold with an arabesque and strapwork centerpiece and pair of matching cornerpieces, the latter of slightly different design on each board; the spine with traces of an oval tool, evidence of two pink or red fore-edge ties, edges gilt and gauffered; very worn and rubbed, backstrip fragmentary, lower headcap gone, joints split. *** unrecorded issue of a bilingual odyssey in its original gold-blocked velvet binding. The philologist Hubert van Giffen (1534-1604) edited classical texts for the publisher or publishing firm of Theodosius Rihel (father, son and grandson all shared the same name), which served the Strassburg university community. Rihel published this Greek and Latin Odyssey with the Batrachomyomachia and the Homeric hymns concurrently with Giffen?'s separate edition of the Iliad (also undated but whose dedication is dated April 1572; the two were apparently issued simultaneously and the other variants of this edition are sometimes catalogued under the Giffen/Rihel Iliad, although there is no general title-page). Later editions of both followed. The German online imprint catalogue VD16 (Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachbereich erschienenen Drucke des 16. Jahrhunderts) records four separate Rihel editions of the Odyssey, all undated, two of which VD16 dates to 1572 and the two others to 1588 and 1592. Our copy appears to be a variant issue of one of the [1572] editions, VD16 H 4697 = H 4622 = H 4644, which is paginated 837, [1] pp., [25] leaves, as here, but does not contain the 16-page dedication to Count Ludwig von Oettingen (dated September [1572?]). The three other editions all seem to include the dedication (one of the them, VD16 ZV 22787, dated to [1572], is not digitized) but are all paginated 827, [1] pp., [26] leaves. The present text consists of the same sheets as VD16 H 4697 (comparison was made to the digitized Bayerische Staatsbibliothek copy), but the preliminary leaves are new to this issue, and bifolium A1.8 was reset to accommodate the dedication. The title (fol. *1r) in our issue is differently worded, and the verso contains a note from the editor to the reader concerning Homeric vocabulary. As leaf A1 in the earlier issue (VD16 H 4697) contained the title (with blank verso), the outer bifolium of quire A (A1.8) had to be reset; the new A1 contains the last two pages of the dedication. The typesetting of fol. A8 in our copy is very close (though not identical) to that of VD16 H 4697, but noticeably a side-note on A8v was omitted from this issue. According to Nicholas Pickwoad, who neatly described the binding as ?"the ghost of a once rather lovely binding?", the structure and manner of execution of this velvet-covered binding localize it to Germany. Blocking on velvet and woven silks was carried out with a powdered glaire, and this method was no doubt used throughout Europe. Fragile velvet bindings ?"in any recognisable shape?" are relatively rare, except in aristocratic and royal collections. As an exceptionally expensive material velvet was reserved for luxury bindings. Although the material of this book seems to have been woven from the ends of different color batches, causing a faintly striped effect, it would nonetheless have been costly. It is clear that this copy belonged to a personnage of rank, perhaps to the dedicatee himself. Cf. Brunet 3:372; Hoffmann 2:316; on Rihel, cf. Benzing p. 449. Grateful thanks to Nicholas Pickwoad.

        Portrait, Brustbild nach rechts im Rechteck mit Bildunterschrift.

      - Nach 1572, Anonym nach Philipp Galle, Kupferstich, Plattengrösse 145 x 102 mm auf 215 x 115 mm. Inscription: - - ANDREAS VESALIUS BRUXELLENSIS / ANATOMICORUM FACILE PRINCEPS - Corporis humani qui membra minut [sic] secaret - Vesalio nullus doelior extiterat, - Hic Medicis auxit & artem. - Dum subit internas qua latuere vias - - "It will be seen that this inscription, modifying somewhat the lines of Benedictus Arias Montanus (whose name is now suppressed) reproduces that of the third edition of Philipp Galle's engraving (sec supra, 4 (c)), which is here imitated, with the omission of the words " auxit, Pictoribus." - - The plate is a very close copy, reversed (en contre-partie) ; that is to say, Vesalius turns to the right. The face, however, is narrower, and the head relatively smaller, although it is actually a little higher. In spile of a number of small variations, the copy is on the whole remarkably successful, although the mouth is more pinched and pouting -in which respect it prepares the way for the important woodcut of Stimmer and Maurer which we shall presently examine. - Owing to the space above the head having been reduced-the inscription in the original plate being suppressed-and half an inch (1-3 cm.) having been sacrificed at the bottom, the portrait is smaller by three-quarters of an inch."

        Cusco, Peru. " Cusco, Regni Peru In Novo Orbe Caiut. "

      Americas: Cologne Theodori Graminæi. 1572. Copper engraved view of the Inca capital Cusco. Peru from the first volume of Braun & Hogenberg's "Civitas Orbis Terrarum. " Original full colour; verso blank The view shows the city of Cusco, the palace and temple, with a procession in the foreground of an Inca King, possibly Atahualpa, being carried aloft on a covered throne by his subjects. Good impression; toned with some damp staining and soiling to blank margins; side margins trimmed to platemark, as it has been divided from the view of Mexico city on one side. The "Civitas Orbis Terrarum" of Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg was the first systemstic city atlas, possible intended to compliment the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum "of Abraham Ortelius published in 1570. There is strong evidence that Braun, Hogenberg and Ortelius discussed the planned work, although some scholars believe it was influenced by Sabastien Munster's "Cosmographia" R A Skelton in his introduction to the facsimile edition [ 1965] puts the case f for the "Theatrum " of Ortelius being the model for the work ( "(it) is made abundantly clear by the similarity between the two works in title, in format and in the layout and serial order of the plates and text" First publishe in 1572 in Cologne just two years after Ortelius' " Theatrum" it was published in six volumes in the years between 1572 and 1617. Georg Braun [1541-1622], Canon of Cologne Cathedral wrote the preface for all but the last volume and also the text accompanying each plan or view on the verso. The plates were engraved by Frans Hogenberg and Simon Novellanus after the original drawings of Joris Hoefnagel[1542-1600] who travelled with Ortelius through Italy and also made extensive travels through France Spain and England Following the death of Frans Hogenberg the plates were engraved by Abraham Hogenberg, believed to be his son. Jacob Hoefnagel continued the work of his father following his death, particularly the Austrian and Hungarian cities. Other notable contributers were Heinrich Rantzau with maps and plans of northern Europe, especially Denmark and Jacob van Deventer's plans of cities in the Netherlands. . Braun corresponded with mapsellers and scholars throughout the world and it was his idea to include the figures of local inhabitants in the foreground of the plans and views, This was not just to add "Local colour" but believing the work could be of refence for Military use, particularly by the Turks. the insertion of images of the human form. specifically forbidden by Islam, was intended to prevent this.

Outside the Mediterranean other European Islands and important trading nations are shown: The British Isles, Ireland ,Scotland, Iceland Holland and Gotlandia. The non-European maps include 4 maps of the Americas; Cuba, Hispaniola, the continent of North America [ this is a reduced-size version of Forlani's very important map of North America published in Venice in 1565 which was the first of the land mass as a single geographic entity - and the first atlas map of North America.] and a birdseye view of Temistitan, or Mexico city. Africa only has a map of Madagascar here called St Lorenzo,; whilst Asia is represented by Tapprobana [ Sri Lanka/ Ceylon] and the Molucche islands or East indies. Two world maps finish the Atlas, an oval world mapwhich is according to Shirley, a reduction of Camocio's large world map issued in 1576. The last map is a Carta Maritima focused on the Atlantic showing the Old and New Worlds and the unknown continent of Antarctica with numerous rhum lines for navigation. Extremely dark impressions of all the maps. Title page with ownership label pasted to lower margin, chipped at right edge and strengthened to verso of lower right edge, damp stained mainly to margins. Some foxing to prelims.

Lightly toned throughout darker to pages 35 & 37 (Description of Negroponte and of the island of Sicily) and to text pages 83 & 85. Some general finger staining and soiling to outer margins . Tomaso Porcacchida Castiglione (1530 ?" 1585) was an Italian writer, born in Tuscany. He lived in Venice in 1559, where he joined the celebrated printer Gabriele Giolito in making a collection of works from Greek historians and other Greek writers, all pertaining to the nation's history. He also published various works in poetry, history, antiquities, and geography, as well as translations of several Greek authors and improved editions of several valuable Italian works. He first published his Isolario in 1572 in Venice and it would be republished and augmented in the succeeding years finally containing 47 maps. The maps were engraved by Girolamo Porro. whilst Porcacchi provided the descriptions. The "Isolario" follows the tradition started by Sonetti and Bordone of "Island "books Girolamo Porro (c. 1520 - after 1604) was an Italian engraver on wood and on copper. He was born at Padua, but worked during the greater part of his life in Venice. He engraved for a book entitled Imprese illustri di diversi, published by Camillo Camilli in 1535. He also executed the plates for the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, published at Venice in 1584 ; for the Funerali antichi di diversi Popoli et Natione, by Tommaso Porcacchi, published in 1574; and the portraits for the Sommario delle Vite do' Duchi di Milano by Scipione Barbuo, 1574. The maps in Girolamo Ruscelli's translation of the Geographia of Ptolemy, 1574, and the maps in Porcacchi's Isole piu famose del Mondo, first published in 1572, are likewise by him.

Copper engraved map of Greece after Jacob Gastaldi from Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" 1571 edition; black & white; German text to verso. The map is from the first German text edition of the "Theatrum". Good dark impression; modern colour; ligtly toned and some light soiling. Abraham Ortelius,[ 1527-1598] Flemish Cartographer . produced the first modern Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" in 1570. printed by Aegidus Coppen Diest. There were numerous editions thereafter with texts in various languages; the printing of such was taken over by Chrstoffel Plantijn in 1579 . Ortelius himself drew all the maps in manuscript before passing them to the printers. there is conjecture that he may have engraved some of the plates as well Ortelius was Geographer Royal To Phillip II of Spain from 1575. He also worked closely with Braun & Hogenburg on the "Civitas Orbis Terarum". After his death the plates were purchased by Jan Baptiste Vrients in 1601 who published further editions until 1612.

        Tennochtitlan, Mexico City. "Mexico, Regia et celebris Hispaniæ Novae Civitas

      Americas: Cologne Theodori Graminæi. 1572. Copper engraved view of the Aztec capital of the New World: Tenochtitlan, Mexico City,f rom the first volume of Braun & Hogenberg's "Civitas Orbis Terrarum. " blank verso. The view of Mexico city, or Tenetchtitlan is taken from a map in the letters of Hernan Cortes published in 1525. Good impression; evenly toned; remargined on right marginas it is half of the page . The "Civitas Orbis Terrarum" of Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg was the first systemstic city atlas, possible intended to compliment the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum "of Abraham Ortelius published in 1570. There is strong evidence that Braun, Hogenberg and Ortelius discussed the planned work, although some scholars believe it was influenced by Sabastien Munster's "Cosmographia" R A Skelton in his introduction to the facsimile edition [ 1965] puts the case f for the "Theatrum " of Ortelius being the model for the work ( "(it) is made abundantly clear by the similarity between the two works in title, in format and in the layout and serial order of the plates and text" First publishe in 1572 in Cologne just two years after Ortelius' " Theatrum" it was published in six volumes in the years between 1572 and 1617. Georg Braun [1541-1622], Canon of Cologne Cathedral wrote the preface for all but the last volume and also the text accompanying each plan or view on the verso. The plates were engraved by Frans Hogenberg and Simon Novellanus after the original drawings of Joris Hoefnagel[1542-1600] who travelled with Ortelius through Italy and also made extensive travels through France Spain and England Following the death of Frans Hogenberg the plates were engraved by Abraham Hogenberg, believed to be his son. Jacob Hoefnagel continued the work of his father following his death, particularly the Austrian and Hungarian cities. Other notable contributers were Heinrich Rantzau with maps and plans of northern Europe, especially Denmark and Jacob van Deventer's plans of cities in the Netherlands. . Braun corresponded with mapsellers and scholars throughout the world and it was his idea to include the figures of local inhabitants in the foreground of the plans and views, This was not just to add "Local colour" but believing the work could be of refence for Military use, particularly by the Turks. the insertion of images of the human form. specifically forbidden by Islam, was intended to prevent this.

        Quilatador de la Plata, Oro, y Piedras

      Large woodcut device on title with arms, surmounted by papal & royal crowns and numerous woodcuts & woodcut initials in the text. Printed tables in the text. 4 p.l., 71 leaves, one leaf. Small 4to, fine 19th-cent. Jansenist binding of crushed red morocco by Thibaron-Echaubard (as usual, washed), dentelles gilt, a.e.g. Valladolid: A. & D. Fernandez de Cordova, 1572. First edition and very scarce. Arfe (1535-95), studied anatomy at Salamanca and became a celebrated artisan in precious metals. Trained as a goldsmith by his father, he was a leading figure of the Spanish artistic style known as "Plateresque," which was based on elaborate gold and silver designs. "Early, much respected treatise written for the edification of apprentices, goldsmiths, and jewelers as well as those interested in precious metals and cut gems generally. The first two books describe methods of assaying, purifying, and alloying silver and gold, with several quaint woodcuts of a balance, weights, receptacles, smelting furnace, etc. The ratios of precious to base metals are carefully tabulated and explained, also the marks that must be used to signify purity, the use of the touchstone and alloy points, and other information deemed essential to the successful and legal use of the precious metals... "For the gemologist, however, it is the last book that is of great importance because it contains some of the earliest reliable, detailed information on weighing, sizing, and valuing precious gems. Treated: diamond, ruby, emerald, spinel, balas (spinel), sapphire, emerald of Brazil (probably green tourmaline), topaz, jacinth (zircon), amethyst (sapphire in part), chrysolite, sardonyx, garnet, rock crystal, pearl, turquoise, agate, coral, 'comerina,' bezoar, 'litropia,' prase, amber, niccolo agate, jasper, and chalcedony. All are described and some discussed in terms of sources, types, and magical and medicinal virtues. More important, however, most of the gems are compared in terms of value and to other standard gemstones of top rank. An excellent feature is the insertion in the text of numerous small cuts of faceted gems of specified sizes so that visual estimates of weight can be made. Numerous tables give gemstones, weights in 'quilates,' and values in Spanish reales. It is this book that Lenzen, Qualitätsmerkmale des Diamanten, 1966 claims as the first printed appearance of the 'square of the weight' rule for pricing cut diamonds. This rule was later repeated by Tavernier in his Travels (which see), and probably due to the scarcity of the present work and the wide publicity given to Tavernier's book, it came to be called the 'Tavernier rule.' Under pearl, in which is depicted a diameter gauge, a similar pricing rule is observed. Very rare."-Sinkankas 215.

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.

The map is criss-crossed with "rhumb lines" (lines showing the course of a ship that keeps a constant compass direction and drawn as lines on a map that cut across all meridians at the same angle). The rhumb was devised by Portuguese sailors to demonstrate 32 points of a mariners compass. The Atlantic is labeled "Mare Del Nort", the Pacific "Mare Del Sur". America is "Nova La Florida Spagna" Very good, bright condition. The map is pictured in "The Mapping of the World: Early Printed World Maps 1472-1700" by Rodney W. Shirley.

        [Archetypa Studiaque Patris Georgio Hoefnagelii]. Venetiis, aput Iust. Sadeler, circa 1614.

      A suite of 38 engravings (145 x 210mm) after Hoefnagel's 'Archetypa'. Old boards. Copies by Justus Sadeler of Hoefnagel's beautiful and influential pattern book, one of the principal sources of seventeenth century still life painting. Hoefnagel's 'Archetypa' consists of 4 parts with 52 engravings. Sadeler copies Hoefnagel, albeit with quite some changes. The lettering is different and there are a number of spelling mistakes. Many of the plates are slightly different adding small animals or replacing others. The second plate of the present work is dedicated to 'All' Illmo Sigr. mio Sigr. et Pron. Colmo. Il Sigr. Lorenzo Soranzo Podestà et Capitano di Treuiso' engraved by Jo. De Fris. DD. Each plate is illustrated with insects, small animals, flowers, fruits, vegetables, etc, most have captions in Latin.//Sadeler's suite of plates seems to be even rarer than Hoefnagel's original. We offered in our catalogue 290 no. 40 (2011) a copy with 39 plates (one more plate than the present copy) and according to Dr. Sam Segal that copy was the most complete copy known. He only knows of 2 copies. One copy formely in the library of C.G. van Tubbergen, Haarlem with 31 plates and another one with 19 plates. WorldCat lists a copy in America with 37 plates, which was purchased from Lathrop Harper's catalogue 197 no. 58. It is however unknown if Sadeler's suite of plates ever contained the same number of plates as Hoefnagel's work.//Justus Sadeler (Antwerp 1572?-c. 1620) was a member of a famous family of engravers and the son of Jan Sadeler I. "He was a pupil and assistant of his father, whom he followed to Munich and then to Italy. In 1601 Justus was recorded in Venice, where he spent the greater part of his career... Justus left a very small number of his own works... Otherwise his oeuvre consists mainly of copies after prints by Adrian Collaert, Joris Hoefnagel, Hendrick Hondius and Hans Vredeman de Vries" (Dictionary of Art). /"The series of engravings in the 'Archetypa', published in Frankfurt in 1592 - showing close-up portraits of plants, insects, and small animals, with their sources in paintings by Joris Hoefnagel - immediately aroused the admiration of lovers of art and nature. The impressive depictions of the 'little world', the microcosm, were intended not merely as representations, but through their penetration into form and structure were also meant to provide a means of explaining the plan of creation - the macrocosm. Joris Hoefnagel was the last significant miniaturist of the late sixteenth century. His fame was, and continues to be, based on the illuminated manuscripts and cabinet miniatures that he produced on commissions from the Emperor Rudolf II and other courtly patrons. His son Jacob, building on his father's fame, produced a series of engravings based on his father's nature motifs, under the title 'Archetypa'... the engravings are accompanied by epigrams that give the images an emblematic quality extending beyond superficial representation" (T. Vignau-Wilberg p. 7).//The full title of Hoefnagel's work is: 'Archetypa studiaque patris Georgii Hoefnagelii Jacobus F. genio duce ab ipso scalpta omnibus philomusis amice D. ac perbenigne communicat'./[Archetype and verses by G Hoefnagel, his father, are presented, engraved in copper under the guidance of his genius and communicated in friendship to all lovers of the Muses by his son Jacob]./Later copies of Hoefnagel's 'Archetypa', are known to have been published by Christian Weigel in Nürnberg, Jeremias Wolff in Augsburg, as well as single sheets by Nicolaes Johannes Vischer in 1630.//A very clean copy with strong and fine impressions with wide margins. The leaves measure 220 x 295mm.//T. Vignau-Wilberg. Archetypa Studiaque Patris Georgii Hoefnagelii. München 1994; Nissen ZBI, 1954.
