Text page(s) included. Original copperplate engraving and etching on a vellin type paper. Watermark not visible on every sheet. Description: This attractive original old antique print / plate originates from: 'Les guerres de Nassau.', by G. Baudartius / G. Baudart, published in Amsterdam by M. Colin de Thovoyon in 1616. This important work on the first five decades of the 80 Years War raging in the Netherlands, Belgium and the western part of Germany from 1568-1648, was written from a Contra-Remonstrant point of view. Many of the plates are after 'Geschichtsblatter' by Frans Hogenberg and after plates from J. J. Orlers' work. New plates were added as well. Artists and Engravers: Willem Baudartius (1565-1640) was born in Deinse, Flanders, Belgium, had already fled the Inquisition for England in 1565, together with his family. Returning in 1577 to Ghent, Baudartius had to flee again in 1585, now to the Northern Netherlands, first he went to Leyden and then to Franeker, where he studied Hebrew with Drusius. Baudartius became a minister of the Dutch Reformed Church, at Kampen, Lisse, and Zutphen. In 1619, Baudart was invited by the Synode at Dordrecht to help translate the Bible into Dutch, and he settled in Leyden, where he devoted his life to translating and writing. The engravings were done by several engravers, amongst whom was Simon Wynhoutsz. Frisius (1580-1629). Condition: Fine. General ag … [Click Below for Full Description]

EUCLID.
[Colophon:] Pesaro: Camillo Franceschini, 1572. First edition of "the most important Latin translation [of Euclid] ... it was the foundation of most translations which followed it up to the time of Peyrard [1814]" (Heath, <em>The Thirteen Books of Euclid's Elements</em>, Vol. 1, p. 104). Euclid's <em>Elements</em> is the "oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today" (PMM). The <em>Elements</em> "exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible" (DSB). Federico Commandino was the most prolific Renaissance translator of Greek mathematical works, as well as the most mathematically competent. His translation was the first to be based upon a tolerably critical Greek original. Although thus far only the chief book-producing centers like Venice had been involved in printing Euclid, this new translation into Latin of the fifteen books of the <em>Elements</em> was produced in Pesaro, a provincial seaport on the Adriatic near Urbino.</p> <p>The first printed Latin translations of Euclid were the medieval translation from the Arabic by Campanus of Novara (Venice, 1482), followed by a Latin translation from the Greek by Bartolomeo Zamberti (Venice, 1505). These two translations, together with the <em>editio princeps</em> of the Greek (Basel, 1533), were the basis for all subsequent Latin editions for more than half a century, and for many translations after that. "However, the better part of this influence was interrupted suddenly and decisively by the fourth major version: the publication at Pesaro in 1572 of the Latin transla … [Click Below for Full Description]

The view of Jena shows "densely crowded houses, by monasteries and above all by the parish church of St Michael, rising above its surroundings with its distinctive spire. First mentioned in records in 1182, Jena received its charter in 1230. After belonging to the Lobdeburgs, in 1331 it passed into the possession of the Wettin family; from 1423 it formed part of the Electorate of Saxony. During the Peasants' was of 1524 the Carmelite convent and the Diminician monastery were destroyed. The university was founded in 1558 by Duke John Frederick II of Saxony. The printing industry, which had been flourishing in Jena since the start of the 16th century, rapidly gained in importance as the university expanded" (Taschen page 82).

Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 12 6/8 x 18 6/8 inches to the neat line). 5 fine engraved views of Tangiers, Safi, Ceuta, Asilah and Sale, all with EXCEPTIONALLY FINE, DELICATE ORIGINAL HAND COLOUR IN FULL, Latin text on verso (some browning and marginal staining and offsetting, one or two patches of brittle oxidation, short marginal tear not affecting the image). Five magnificent views of Tangiers, Safi, Ceuta, Asilah and Sale in North Africa, from the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. This engraving of Tangiers in Morocco "shows a fortified town, whereby only half the area within the walls is built up. The large building in the background may be the governor's residence. In 1471 the Portuguese attacked Asilah, whose inhabitants fled to Tangier. But that same year Tangier, too, was conquered, and remained in Potuguese hands until 1580" (Taschen 123). Ceuta " lies on a peninsula on the coast of North Africa, near the Strait of Gibraltar. There were three reasons for its conquest by Portugal in 1415: firstly, the peninsula had become a threat due to its location on the Strait of Gibraltar, where it could potentially provide the Muslims with a stepping-stone to Europe. Secondly, Ceuta was an important trading port via which goods from Africa, in particular gold, were brought to Europe. Thirdly, the peninsula offered Portugal a gateway to the unknown continent of Africa. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georg BRAUN & Franz HOGENBERG
1572. Pianta a volo d'uccello, dalla I edizione del Civitates Orbis Terrarum, il primo atlante devoto esclusivamente alle piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo. Opera in 6 volumi, pubblicati dal 1572 al 1617. I sei volumi delle Civitates, grazie alla ricchezza dell'apparato cartografico-iconografico (più di 350 tavole di grande formato contenenti le raffigurazioni di circa 600 luoghi urbani), alla cura tipografico-editoriale, alla dovizia di informazioni storiche e attuali sulle città e alla novità costituita dalla stessa sistematicità e completezza della raccolta, rimasero a lungo un modello insuperato del genere. Gli autori principali furono Georg Braun (1541-1622), che curò la parte testuale, e Frans Hogenberg, editore, incisore e probabile ideatore dell'opera. La pianta, pubblicata nel I volume dell'opera, è una copia, in formato ridotto, di quella del Camocio. La città è ritratta dal Gianicolo. Rispetto alla pianta del Camocio, sono aggiunte in basso le due figure della dama e del cavaliere, elemento decorativo distintivo di tutte le vedute dell'opera di Braun & Hogenberg. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione.

The city centre is dominated by the best-preserved work of antique architecture, namely the Pantheon (c. AD 120). In 609, under Pope Boniface VI, the round domed structure was consecrated and dedicated to the Virgin and all the Christian martyrs, and from then on became known as Santa Maria Rotunda.

The urban layout within the city walls is illustrated very clearly, as is the Seine flowing around the Isle de la Cité with the Sainte-Chapelle, the palace chapel. During the reign of Philip IV (Philip the Fair) the Tour d'Argent and Tour de César gatetowers and the Tour de l'Horloge clock tower were built. The city numbered some 200,000 inhabitants.

The urban layout within the city walls is illustrated very clearly, as is the Seine flowing around the Isle de la Cité with the Sainte-Chapelle, the palace chapel. During the reign of Philip IV (Philip the Fair) the Tour d'Argent and Tour de César gatetowers and the Tour de l'Horloge clock tower were built. The city numbered some 200,000 inhabitants. Just beyond the city wall at the top of the picture is the large Fort la Bastille. On a fictive hill three people clad in typical contemporary dress are shown from an idealized viewpoint. In the first half of the 16th century, France copied the stiff Spanish fashions: hence the man wears a Spanish cape with a stand-up collar and epaulettes over a padded doublet and hose, while the ladies wear … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and Frans HOGENBERG (fl. c. 1540-1590).
Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572 Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 12 6/8 x 18 4/8 inches to the neat line). 2 fine engraved views of Lubeck and Hamburg, the title and explanatory text within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, all with delicate original colour in full, Latin text on verso (some browning and marginal staining and offsetting, one or two patches of brittle oxidation, tear in the lower margin affecting the image). Magnificent views of Lubeck and Hamburg in Germany, from the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. The view of Lubeck shows "the "City of Seven Spires" on the Baltic Sea seen from the west across the inland harbour, with the city gates - the Holstentor, left, Molentor and Burgtor, right - and the spires of its seven Gothic red-brick churches, all of which evolved out of existing Romanesque churches. Rising magnificently on the left is Lübeck's Gothic cathedral (De Dom). Further right lies the church of St Giles (S. Tillien), then the imperial church of St Peter (S. Petri) and the town Hall. St Mary's (Unse Lefrowen Karck) served the merchants, city council and people of Lübeck and is considered the mother church of red-brick Gothic architecture in northern Germany: it would provide the model for some 70 churches in the Baltic region. On the far right, finally, is the church of St. James (S. Iakob), dedicated to the patron saint of sailors and fishermen" (Taschen page 86). The view of H … [Click Below for Full Description]
