CHRIEGER, Christophoro, after a drawing by Tiziano VECELLIO, Known as TITIAN
Venice: 1572. Uncolored woodcut, 2 sheets joined (First Edition). Printed on paper with watermark. Sheet size: 19" x 29" This swirling, vibrant and extremely rare Italian woodcut represents the decisive Battle of Lepanto. This is the first state of Christophoro Chrieger's outstanding work of which less than five examples are known. The watermark is of a shield with a unicorn. Chrieger, one of the most remarkable woodcut artists of his day who worked in the artistic capital of the world, Venice, was born in present-day Germany and died in 1590. He left behind an impressive oeuvre, including not only this woodcut but the many he contributed to Cesare Vecellio's La favorite del Turco ("The Sultan's Favorite"), one of the most famous early printed costume books covering the costumes of Europe and Ottoman Turkey. The landmark confrontation at Lepanto, fought on October 5, 1571, was waged between the Ottomans and members of the Christian Holy League. The Holy League's forces were made up of soldiers and equipment from the Republic of Venice, the Papacy (under Pope Pius V), Spain (including Naples, Sicily and Sardinia), the Republic of Genoa, the Duchy of Savoy, the Knights Hospitaller and others. In the end the Holy League soundly defeated the Ottomans' navy, thus ending the Ottomans' dreams of supremacy over the Mediterranean. The forces of the Ottomans and Holy League suffered heavy casualties during the Battle of Lepanto as this documentary woodcut amply demonstrates. The Holy League under the command of Don Juan of Austria fought with 206 galleys, 6 galleasses, and 1,815 guns … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wolfgang Kirchner, Magdeburg / Magdeborch, 1572. In German. Lacks at least the title page. I have trouble reading the Fraktur, so this is an approximation as the lettering appears: "Borrede op Dath Nye Testament" is the first line on the first page of text. Pagination (vii)," CCCCXXV" leaves (850 pages), (xix) Register. Condition: The first 3 leaves have some paper fill-ins to the margins, with no real loss of main text, but some loss of text to the marginal notes. Many pages have light waterstains, mostly to the margins. The pages have been trimmed with loss of marginal lettering. Both endpapers are intact. The colophon on the last page reads: "BedrIIcset (?Bedrucket) tho / Magdeborch dorch Wolff / gang Kirchner M. D. LXXII." The pages are tightly bound with not much foxing. The binding is period, full brown, worn and rubbed calf. The covers are well attached but there is cracking to the exterior hinges. The spine ends and the hinges are chipped. There are about 36 full-page woodcut illustrations, of which 26 are in the last book, "De Apenbaringe S. Johannis" (The Apocalypse of St. John). First letters of each book are ornately illustrated. The book measures 4 inches by 6-1/8 inches (100mm by 153mm). The pages measure 3-13/16 inches by 6 inches (95mm by 150mm). There is a 1789 owner's name on the frontpaper, with the name of "McKeon" stamped on the inner front cover. Size: 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and HOGENBERG, Frans (fl. 1540-1590).
Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. - Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center 8" tear and 3/4 inch gap.) Gorgeous antique map featuring two bird's eye views of Lisbon and Cascael; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Hand-colored and decorated with cartouche and Lisbon coat of arms. Lisbon's appearance in second place in this famous atlas is certainly no accident. Lisbon attained great wealth from the establishment of the Portuguese trade empire between Africa, India, and the Far East. In 1499, Vasco de Gama set out on a voyage of discovery, resulting in colonization of parts of Asia and South America. By the mid- 16th century, it was ranked amongst the largest of the cities belonging to the Civitates. This sheet contains two views of beautiful Lisbon; the top presents the whole city complete with the Romans and Moorish citadels in the background; and lower portion shows the Tower of Belem and the Geronimos Monastery. The view of densely packed houses reflects the idea of how bustling the city must have been for the 16th century. The lower portion of the plan showcases Cascais, a small fishing village in the vicinity of Lisbon. It is depicted here as a low, bird's-eye perspective from the sea. The church of Santa Maria mentioned by Braun in verso served the former Hieronymite monastery (c. 1502-1572). The 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' ('Atlas of the Cities of the World') by Braun and Hogenburg is the second oldest printed atlas in the history of world cartography; and the first atlas of towns.

L'op. è composta da 3 dialoghi, in cui Sofia e Filone discorrono, a livello filosofico, dell'amore. Ad es., nel 1° dialogo, spiega Sofia a Filone: ".son contrari affetti della vo-lontà, amare e desiderare. perché le cose che da noi sono stimate buone, quelle che haviamo et possediamo, l'amiamo; e quelle che ci mancano le desideriamo, di modo che quel che s'ama, prima si desidera; e di poi che la cosa desiderata s'è ottenuta, l'amore viene e manca il desiderio." (c.3). Gli altri 2 dialoghi hanno come titoli: II: Della Communità di amore; III: De l'origine di amore. [Diz. biografico univers. I 23 ricorda che il padre dell'Aut. fu il rabbino Isacco, nato a Lisbona nel 1437, consigliere di Alfonso V di Portogallo, riofrmatore delle finanze dei re di Spagna Ferdinando e Isabella e autore di opere religiose e dell'Aut. scrive: "suo figlio, cognominato Mastro Leone, scrisse Dialoghi d'amore, sotto nome di Leone l'ebreo".

BUONANNI, Vincenzo. (Dante)
In Fiorenza, nella Stamperia di Bartolomeo Sermartelli, 1572. In 4to (cm. 22); legatura coeva in pergamena molle con titolo elegantemente ms. al dorso all’epoca; front. con marca tip. in xilografia; pp. (8), 230 (6). Con una interessante figura in xilografia della "Geografia dell’Inferno". PRIMA edizione. V. Buonanni, nato a Firenze nella prima metà del ‘500 da nobile famiglia, fu cultore delle lettere classiche e di quelle italiane; fu membro dell’Accademia fiorentina; fu in rapporti abbastanza cordiali con i letterati del suo tempo e principalmente con A. F. Grazzini. Quando, alla fine del 1550, furono eletti i riformatori della lingua fiorentina, tra cui il Varchi, il Gelli e il Giambullari, il Lasca li invitò a chiamare tra loro anche il Buonanni. E’ questa l’unica edizione sul Poema di Dante ad apparire nella città natale del poeta tra l’edizione giuntina di Benivieni del 1506 e l’edizione dell’Accademia della Crusca del 1595. Il commento di B. per la sua familiarità ed uso della letteratura greca come paragone anticipa la famosa discussione su Dante iniziata dal misterioso Ridolfo Castravilla che attaccò la Commedia di Dante, nello stesso anno, per il suo discostarsi dalle norme della poetica Aristotelica nel suo "Discorso nel quale si mostra l’imperfettione della Commedia di Dante": La revisione di B. del testo di Dante, sulla base dei primi manoscritti, particolarmente sui 4 in suo possesso, sottolinea nelle sue intenzioni una nuova direzione sul fronte filologico che condurrà all’edizione critica dell’Accademia della Crusca del 1595.

BAGLIONE GIOVANNI (1573-1644).
Roma, Andrea Fei, 1642. In - 4ø; antiporta incisa in rame da J.F. Greuter da disegno dell'autore, 406 pagine, 1 carta. Assente, come in molti esemplari, il ritratto dell'autore. Legatura ottocentesca in mezzo marocchino verde. Titoli e riquadri in oro al dorso. Il taglio tocca il filo di riquadro alto dell'antiporta. Carta, a tratti un poco uniformemente ingiallita ma buon esemplare proveniente dalla biblioteca Georg Gronau (1868 - 1938, storico dell?arte, cui si devono studi fondamentali su Giovanni Bellini) e dalla biblioteca del noto storico dell'arte Eugene Muntz (1845 - 1902). Prima edizione rara dedicata al Cardinal Colonna. L'opera costituisce uno dei documenti pi-- importanti riguardanti gli artisti attivi a Roma tra il 1572 e il 1642 e si presenta come sorta di continuazione delle Vite vasariane. Le biografie sono circa 80, tra queste ricordiamo, quella del Caravaggio, del Vasari, dei Carracci, dello Zuccari, del Cavalier d'Arpino, del Bernini, del Dominichino, del Bassano e tra gli stranieri quella del Rubens e del Goltius. Proprio in quanto i testi del Baglione, come Š noto pittore attivo a Roma, riguardano artisti contemporanei, le notizie risultano attendibili essendo la loro trasmissione spesso per via orale o direttamente tramite le frequentazioni ed i contatti con gli artisti. Cicognara 2190. Fossati Bellani 1412. Schlosser Magnino, p. 460. Grassi II, pp. 37 - 38. Rossetti 672.

Lederband mit blindgeprägten Rollstempel- und Plattenverzierungen und 2 Schliessen., Einband und Innenansicht VD16 B 6021. - Nissen 182. - Pritzel 866. - Spätere illustrierte Ausgabe. - Im Gegensatz zum humanistisch geprägten Brunfels und eher in der volkstümlichen Tradition des "Gart der Gesundheit" stellte der Hornbacher Pfarrer Bosch sein Werk zusammen, "indem er sich ganz den heimatlichen Pflanzen widmet. Nicht nur erwanderte er sich deren Kenntnis in der freien Natur; zeitweise scheint er auch , als Leiter eines Botanischen Gartens in Zweibrücken, Gelegenheit zu eigenen Kulturversuchen genommen zu haben. Dementsprechend finden wir bei ihm reichhaltige Fundangaben und treffsichere phänologische Bemerkungen. Auch die ungemein anschauliche, humorgewürzte Beschreibung der Pflanzen zeugt von seinem nahen Verhältnis zur Natur". (Nissen S. 51). - Die Darstellungen, die an Weiditz und Fuchs erinnern, sind direkt nach Vorlagen aus der Natur geschnitten worden. - Bocks Kräuterbuch wurde bis ins 17. Jahrhundert mehrfach aufgelegt. ? Titelblatt mit Gebrauchsspuren, leimschattig, verso mit alten handschr. Besitzereinträgen und montiertem Papierausschnitt mit alter Handschrift. Papier nur vereinzelt fleckig und wasserrandig. Beide fliegenden Vorsätze fehlen.

Frankfurt, Godefridus Tampachius, 1610. In-4. Legatura del '700 in pelle maculata; dorso con nervi e tassello; qualche abrasione ma legatura solida. Numerose silografie n.t. (diagrammi, figure astronomiche ed alcuni strumenti a p. pag.). (16), 9-112, 28, 113-256, (16 ff. num. 257-272), 273-496, 499-822, (12) pp. (= 884 pp.) Frontespizio restaurato; fioriture e bruniture sparse, a volte marcate. Rara seconda tiratura della prima edizione di una delle opere più importanti del celebre astronomo, nella quale rielaborò la famosa relazione sulla stella da lui scoperta nel 1572. Contiene anche il primo catalogo stellare moderno che rimase valido per più di un secolo. La prima edizione venne pubblicata dal Keplero a Praga nel 1602. Questa è una nuova tiratura per la quale si utilizzarono gli stessi fogli; infatti soltanto il frontespizio ed alcuni preliminari furono ricomposti. DSB II, 401. Cinti, Galilei, 24. Houzeau & L.

It contains the first modern star catalogue and «important investigations on the new star of 1572 which Brahe had dicovered in Cassiopea. This discovery led to far-reaching consequences in the history of astronomy as this work became the foundation on which Kepler, and later Newton, built their astronomical system» (Sparrow, Milestones of Science, p. 12).
