        [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.

Hieronymus Bock (Latinised Tragus) (1498 - February 21, 1554) was a German botanist, physician, and Lutheran minister who began the transition from medieval botany to the modern scientific worldview by arranging plants by their relation or resemblance.The details of his life are sketchy. In 1519 he inscribed at the university of Heidelberg. He married Eva Victor in 1523, and was schoolteacher in Zweibrücken for nine years. He became the prince's physician and caretaker of the kitchen garden of the count palatine and in 1533 received a life-time position as a Lutheran minister in nearby Hornbach where he stayed up to his death in 1554.The first edition of his Kreutterbuch (literally "plant book") appeared in 1539 unillustrated; his stated objectives were to describe German plants, including their names, characteristics, and medical uses. Instead of following Dioscorides as was traditional, he developed his own system to classify 700 plants. Bock apparently traveled widely through the German region observing the plants for himself, since he includes ecological and distributional observations. His 1546 Kreutterbuch or "herbal" was illustrated by the artist David Kandel. [Wikepedia]. In the wine world, Bock is noted for having the first documented use of the modern word Riesling in 1552 when it was mentioned in his Latin herbal. Bock's description of oak apples is noted in the entomologists data base.The grass genus Tragus and spurge genus Tragia are both named after him

        Plate 66, Veve du Chateau de St. Cloud du cote de la Grance Avenue a la Seconde Grille

      Paris: late 18th century - This superb hand-colored engraving, Plate 66, Veve du Chateau de St. Cloud du cote de la Grance Avenue a la Seconde Grille, from the late 18th century measures 19.75&#148; x 26.75&#148; and is in excellent condition with light foxing in the margins. This engraving illustrates an entrance into Chateau St. Cloud, a residence of French rulers built in 1572, and owned in 1658 by Louis XIV's brother, "Monsieur", Philippe, duc d'Orléans. This dramatic and vibrant scene shows courtiers and noblemen entering one of the side gates, by horseback, foot or carriage, to the expansive courtyard of Chateau St. Cloud. This engraving uses perspective in a dynamic way, with the trees in the foreground extremely tall and the buildings and surrounding foliage reducing in size as they move further away. During the mid to late 18th century, the trend amongst European artists, printmakers and publishers, was to visually record their own country's architectural treasures, and the natural beauty of their gardens. Motivated by national pride, artists and printmakers began to publish views of their most-admired estates and grounds. In addition to being a visual record of the countryside, they were meant to encourage public recognition of national treasures. These prints were meant to be purchased by the English and foreign tourists whom desired a memento of their travels. Louis XIV (1638-1715), the Sun King of France, had grown up during a civil war between rival factions of aristocrats, known as the Fronde, and wanted a site where he could control the French government by absolute rule. Louis settled on the royal hunting lodge at Versailles , which had been acquired by Louis XIII in 1632, and over the following decades expanded it into the largest palace and grounds in the world. It was Louis XIV's hope to create a center for the royal court at Versailles . Beginning in 1669, the architect, Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), began a detailed renovation of the château. The Château of Versailles, outside of Paris , was converted into a spectacular royal palace in a series of four major and distinct building campaigns. By the end of the third building campaign, the Château had taken on most of the appearance that it retains to this day, except for the Royal Chapel in the last decade of the reign. Louis XIV officially moved to Versailles , along with the royal court, on May 6, 1682. Louis had several reasons for creating such a symbol of extravagant opulence and stately grandeur, and for shifting the seat of the monarch. By moving the royal court and the seat of the French government, Louis XIV hoped to gain greater control of the government from the nobility, by requiring that nobles of a certain rank and position spend time each year at Versailles, Louis prevented them from developing their own regional power and kept them from countering his efforts to centralize the French government in an absolute monarchy. Thus, many noblemen had to either to give up all influence, or to depend entirely on the king for grants and subsidies.

Primer pliego traspuesto, pero texto completo. * Primera edición de la sinopsis del Nuevo Testamento a cargo de Nicholas Harpsfield alias Alanus Copus (1519-1575), historiador, apologista y párroco inglés. Harpsfield estudió derecho en Oxford y se relacionó con el círculo de Thomas Moore, del que escribió una biografía. A mediados del siglo XVI, tras el acceso al trono de Eduardo VI y el establecimiento de las políticas religiosas de la reforma inglesa, que no eran de su agrado, dejó Inglaterra para proseguir sus estudios en Lovaina. Sin embargo, regresó a su país natal en 1553 y se convirtió en arcediano de la diócesis de Canterbury. Supervisió centenares de juicios contra los protestantes y promovió otros por herejía. En The Book of Martyrs, John Foxe se refiere a él como el más resentido y de menor compasión entre los arcedianos implicados en las persecuciones marianas y lo hace directamente responsable de numerosas muertes. Tras oponerse al régimen de Isabel I y negar su apoyo al juramento de supremacía fue condenado a prisión, de donde salió poco antes de su muerte.

Die beiden berühmten, nach Volcher Coiters Biographen Robert Herrlinger "vollends originell[en] und wegweisend[en]" Kinderskelett-Tafeln aus den "Externarum et internarum principalium humani corporis partium tabulae" (Nürnberg, 1572). Nachdem der jungverstorbene Mediziner Coiter (1534-76), ein in Nürnberg wirkender Friese, nach seiner Zeit in Italien an keiner Universität mehr lehrte, hatte das Werk zunächst nur einen sehr eingeschränkten Leserkreis, und seine "Auflage kann nicht groß gewesen sein" (Herrlinger, 57). Bei den hier vorliegenden Tafeln handelt es sich um "die ältesten bisher bekannten [Abbildungen] aus dem Gebiet der Embyrologie und Kinderanatomie. Es handelt sich um zwei große Falttafeln von über einem halben Meter Höhe [.] Die erste zeigt das Skelett eines halbjährigen Kindes von schräg vorne, die zweite von schräg hinten; auf dieser ist als 'Abb. 3' ein kleines Skelett einer dreimonatigen Fehlgeburt hinzugefügt [.] Alle Abbildungstafeln sind wie immer mit V.C.D. signiert. Wenn sie auch nicht völlig korrekt sind, so ist vor allem an den beiden großen Kinderskeletten bemerkenswert, wie Coiter versucht, in reiner Schwarz-Weiß-Technik Knorpel und Knochen als zwei verschiedene Materialien zu kennzeichnen: er punktiert den Knorpel und läßt den Knochen weiß. Noch heute ist diese Art der Knorpeldarstellung üblich [.] Coiters Kinderskelette haben Schule gemacht. Felix Platter bringt in seinem anatomischen Lehrbuch von 1583 ebenfalls, als zweiter, Kinderskelette, die ohne Coiter kaum denkbar sind [.] Wirklich neue, bessere Abbildungen vom foetalen und vom kindlichen Skelett gab erst Thomas Kerckring (1670). Coiters Abbildungen waren ein ganzes Jahrhundert lang maßgebend gewesen" (ebd., S. 80). - Etwas braunfleckig; kl. Einrisse alt hinterlegt. VD 16, ZV 3754. R.

        La Historia del Mondo Nuovo

      Pietro & Francesco Tini, Venice 1572 - Bound in contemporary limp vellum with title inked on spine, later endpapers, leaf 103 with repaired marginal tear. Some worming and staining to binding, some spotting, occasional foxing; several early ownership inscriptions scored on title; generally very good. Scarce first complete edition (with 19 woodcuts) of the second printed work devoted to the customs of the American Indians illustrated from life. This edition is augmented with a section on the Canary Islands and an extra plate. Benzoni¿s is one of the earliest accounts of the European colonial establishment in America by a writer who was not Spanish, and the spirited woodcuts (all but one of which show Native Americans) were among the first to give Europeans images of Indians and their activities. Their ethnographic value has long been acknowledged, and they were the source for the De Bry engravings, which of course reached an even wider audience. The historical and ethical value of the work is also considerable: ¿Along with Las Casas¿ Brevissima relación de la destruyción de las Indias, the Historia is considered one of the two foundation stones of the Black Legend of Spanish cruelty to the Indian.¿ Benzoni (b. 1519), a native of Milan, came to the Caribbean as a young man in 1541 and visited the Greater Antilles, the Spanish Main, and Central America, thereafter sailing from Panama to Peru. Penrose notes that he ¿covered more ground than any other writer of the times, for with the exception of Mexico he had traveled with some thoroughness throughout Spanish America.¿ For extensive illustration of American Indians, the Historia was preceded only by Thevet's Les Singularitez de la France AntarctiqueI 1558, which focused on Brazil. * 1) Adams B 688; Sabin 4791; Sturtevant, ¿First Visual Images of Native America,¿ and Keen in First Images of America I, 417-54 & 108; Penrose, Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance, p. 299. 2) Renouard I, 134.18; Adams V 624.

[ In 1541, Girolamo Benzoni left his native Milan for a fifteen-year trip through South and Central America. He published this account of his travels in 1565. Shocked by experiences of Spanish cruelty toward the Indians, Benzoni denounced the mistreatment. He also criticized importation of African slaves. Although Benzoni has been criticized for exaggeration, his work provides a compact history of the Americas from the arrival of Columbus to the conquest of Peru, from firsthand perspective not coloured by Spanish bias. His crude woodcut illustrations give a glimpse of indigenous life before it was altered by European civilization.] Second printed work devoted to the customs of the American Indians, illustrated from life among the first to show images of the Indians to the Europeans.

Charles IX. en sa bonne ville et cité de Paris le mardy sixiesme jour de mars, avec le couronnement de. Madame Élisabet d'Austriche, son espouse, le dimanche vingtcinquiesme, et entrée de ladicte dame en icelle ville le jeudi XXIX. dudict mois de mars M D LXXI.' ~ A Paris, Denis du Pré pour Olivier Codoré, 1571-1572 In-4, 1 vol, vélin à rabat, liens en cuir (reliure de l&#146;époque). Edition originale de &#146;un des pluys beaux livres de fête du XVIe siècle, relatant le couronnement de la reine Elisabeth d&#146;Autriche épouse de Charles IX et fille de l&#146;empereur Maximilien II à Saint-Denis, et l&#146;entrée des souverains dans la capitale. Cet ouvrage est dû à Simon Bousquet, échevin parisien chargé d'&#146;organiser la fête et d&#146;'agencer les décors. Il s'&#146;était alors tournés vers Ronsard et Dorat qui prirent en charge la mise en scène et fixèrent le thème (l&#146;heureuse rencontre de la France et de la Germanie), un peu à la manière d&#146;impresarios modernes, reprenant là le rôle parfois dévolu dans l&#146;ombre à Geoffroy Tory ou, plus encore, à Jean Poyet. Ce sont ces deux poètes qui firent alors appel au merveilleux artistes de la sculpture française : Germain Pilon, à Le Conte pour la charpenterie, et, pour la perspective et les peintures, à Pierre d&#146;Angers et Nicolo dell&#146;Abbate, le célèbre émule du Primatice à Fontainebleau; la relation est agrémentée de plusieurs pièces de Ronsard, Antoine Du Baïf, Amadis Jamyn, Jean Dorat ~ Elle est illustrée de 16 gravures sur bois et hors texte, par Olivier Codoré, nom abrégé, selon Mariette, du valet de chambre et graveur en pierres fines du futur Henri IV, surnommé Coldoré à cause de l&#146;abondance de colliers qu&#146;il exhibait volontiers. Elles représentent la décoration, inspirée de l&#146;entrée d&#146;Henri II en 1549 ( la ville de Paris lui donna une solennité particulière, n&#146;épargnant aucun effort pour en souligner le caractère majestueux : les décors et les édifices furent dessinés et construits sous la direction des plus grands artistes, Jean Cousin, Jean Goujon et Philibert de l&#146;Orme). L&#146;ornementation est de style de l&#146;école de Fontainebleau. La trame antiquisante et symbolique de l&#146;&#156;uvre sert ainsi de support aux tendances artistiques profondes de la Renaissance française, dont ce livre marque une forme d&#146;apogée et rappelle les gravures de l&#146; Hypnerotomachie ou Discours du songe de Poliphile .

        Les Vies des Hommes illustres, Grecs & Romains, comparees l&#146;une avec l&#146;autre Par Plutarque de Chaeronnee, Translatees premierement de Grec en Francois par maistre Iaques Amyot.

      Lyon: Pour Loys Cloquemin & Estienne Michel 1572 - some spotting and fingersoiling, second leaf with a short handling tear in gutter, ownership inscription to title-page dated 1635, ff. [vi], 436, [33], folio, late eighteenth-century quarter calf, sponge-mottled boards, red morocco lettering piece to spine, rubbed and worn, institutional bookplate to front pastedown, sound A rare and probably pirated early printing of Jacques Amyot&#146;s famous translation of Plutarch&#146;s Lives. The first edition appeared in 1559 and it saw an official second edition in 1565 followed by a third in 1567, all by Michel Vascosan in Paris. By 1572 Jacques du Puys was producing an edition in Paris (although with a colophon attributing the printing to Jean le Preux in Lausanne), with Francois le Preux adding one at Lausanne in 1574; according to ODNB it is from this latter printing (although there called the third) that Sir Thomas North produced his version that provided Shakespeare with his access to Plutarch. These official printings were not the only ones on the market, however: &#145;The popularity of Jacques Amyot&#146;s translations of Plutarch is indicated by the numerous contemporary editions and contrefaçons&#146; (Sharratt, &#145;A Rare Edition of Amyot&#146;s Plutarch&#146;, Forum for Mod. Lang. Studies, VII.4 p. 409), and more than one article has been written identifying pirated editions or counterfeit copies. This edition appeared the same year as another folio from du Puys in Paris, which is an entirely different thing: the du Puys printing has 646 leaves in the main text and printed portrait medallions at the head of each biography, while this is much slimmer and fits more text on each page by omitting almost all decoration. This also appears to be much rarer; we have been unable to locate any copy with this imprint and date in the BNF, COPAC or Worldcat, the closest thing being a 1578 set of four octavos from E. Michel in Lyon in the National Library of Scotland. (Not in Adams)

        Le Devote Meditationi Di S. Agostino. Con Li Soliloquii, & Il Manuale: Nella Volgar Lingua Tradotte [The Devotional Meditations of Saint Augustine, With His Soliloquies and Manual, Translated Into Italian - With Woodcuts]

      Gio. Antonio Bertano. Hardcover. B00NFS4VB8 In Italian. 1572 Gio. Antonio Bertano (Venice, Italy), 3 x 4 inches tall full vellum bound, 43 half-page woodcut engravings, [10], 376 pp. Minor staining and remnants of label to spine of vellum covers, which splay open slightly. Worming to the first seven leaves, mostly effecting the title page and the Tavola delli Capitoli (Table of Contents). Lower third of the title page lacking, with soiling, worming and chipping to the rest of the page, which is mounted on a laid sheet. Minor worming to the table of contents with just an occasional loss of a letter. Cracking between pp. 374-375, but the binding holds firm. Pencil notation to rear pastedown. Otherwise, apart from occasional minor soiling, slight creasing and a couple of tiny closed page-edge tears, a very good copy of a rare, richly-illustrated sixteenth century vernacular edition of the Pseudo-Augustinian &#39;Meditations, Soliloquies and Manual of Augustine of Hippo.&#39; OCLC (Nos. 557387767, 771097709) locates only two copies of this edition worldwide, at the British Library&#39;s St. Pancras Library in London and at British National Bibliography in Wetherby, West Yorkshire. Several Latin and vernacular editions of Augustine&#39;s Meditations, Soliloquies and Manual were printed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries throughout Europe, but despite their popularity (or perhaps because of their popularity, and use by the faithful), few copies survive. It is now understood that these books were not in fact written by Augustine of Hippo, but only attributed to him. Their authorship is best characterized as compilatory, with anonymous 13th century Augustinian monks skillfully bringing together materials gathered from Augustine&#39;s &#39;Confessions,&#39; as well as the Bible and several important medieval religious writers, including Hugh of St. Victor (circa 1096-1141), Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), Isidore of Seville (circa 560-636), Bernard of Clairvaux (1090-1153) and Jean de Fecamp (circa 990-1078). These Pseudo-Augustinian books were in fact so popular that they delayed the translated publication of Augustine of Hippo&#39;s genuine works (including his genuine &#39;Soliloquies&#39;) during the 17th century and later. Long before the first English translation of Augustine&#39;s &#39;City of God&#39; (1608) and &#39;Confessions&#39; (1620), these Pseudo-Augustinian works had not only been published in English, Italian and other European languages (both as collections and separately), but had achieved ernormous popularity and even engendered a &#39;publishing war&#39; between protestant and Roman Catholic translators and publishers. .

It provides a significant source for the first half of the of the 15th century, recounting in considerable detail the civil war between the houses of Orleans and Burgundy, the occcupation of Paris and Normandy by the English, the exploits of Joan of Arc and the ending of the Hundred Years War. <br>Monstrelet [c. 1390-1453], was in the service of Jean de Luxembourg throughout much of the period he describes, and much of what he relates to he either saw at first hand or heard from an eye-witness.
