      - STCN (1 copy); VD17 23:242578S (2 copies); WorldCat (5 copies, incl. 2 the same); for the bindery: Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding I, pp. 228-284, 332-347 and 360-363. Very rare edition of the well-known German "Lobwasser Psalter", here published in the Netherlands (in the original German) and first published at Leipzig in 1573, including, with its own title-page but clearly published together, a hymnbook and catechism with translations, adaptations and texts by Martin Luther and Johannes Habermann (1516-1590).It is splendidly bound in contemporary Dutch richly gold-tooled red morocco. The binding uses 4 stamps (86/87, 106, 121 and 128) and 1 roll (XXXII) found in the stock of the so-called "Double Drawer Handle Bindery", active 1697-1742. The roll was later used by the so-called "Art Book Bindery" (III), active 1705-1741 and the "Houbraken Group" (III), active 1708-1721. This last used two more stamps that appear on the present binding (9 and 29), so the attribution remains uncertain, but since the two later binderies were not active until seven years after publication and the Drawer Handle Bindery is known for its bindings for the Wetstein firm, that association seems the most likely. This bindery is considered "the most important Amsterdam workshop of the eighteenth century" (Storm van Leeuwen).In very good condition, with only a few small spots or stains. Binding chipped along the extremities, most heavily at the head and foot of the spine, but otherwise good.

["Llwyd] wrote the Commentarioli Britannicae descriptionis fragmentum, a short historical and geographical description of Britain which he dispatched to Ortelius on 3 August 1568; it was published in Cologne in 1572 and is dedicated to Ortelius. It was translated by Thomas Twyne under the title The Breviary of Britayne and published in 1573. It was the first attempt to compile a chorographia of Britain as a whole. Central themes of Llwyd's work are his defence of Geoffrey of Monmouth (particularly countering the attacks of Polydore Vergil), and his belief in the integrity of the early British church." (Oxford DNB). While John Dee is generally credited for the creation of the term "British Empire" and first using it presumably in 1576, it is clearly noticeable that that "A Welshman named Humphrey Llwyd (1527-1568) used it some eight years earlier.In 1568 he wrote Commentarioli Britannicae descriptionis fragmentum, one of several sixteenth-century apologies for the Brut History. The volume was published in 1572, and a year later Thomas Twyne (1543-1613) produced an English translation entitled The Breuiary of Britayne. In Commentarioli there is one passage containing 'British Empire' : 'Caduanne also, who from Prince of Gwynedh, became Kynge of the Britaynes, and his sonne Cadwalla.whilst the British Empire was in decaying: were Valient kynges.' (Commentarioli page 75; Breuiary page 92). " ("John Dee, Humphrey Llwyd, and the Name 'British Empire.'" Bruce Ward Henry. Huntington Library Quarterly) ESTC S108126. STC 16636.

Première édition française, dans la traduction de François de Belleforest, "plus rare que l'édition latine originale publiée à Bâle la même année" (Blackmer). Important représentant de l’historiographie humaniste, converti au protestantisme, Pietro Bizzari (1530 - 1584) vécut et exerça des activités dans plusieurs pays européens puis entra au service de l’électeur Auguste de Saxe sur la recommandation de Philipp Melanchthon. Cette histoire de la guerre de Chypre traite de la quatrième guerre vénéto-ottomane qui opposa, de 1570 à 1573, l'Empire ottoman à la République de Venise appuyée par la Sainte-Ligue. Elle demeure l’une des bonnes sources contemporaines sur le sujet, l’auteur ayant eu accès à des documents inédits et de première main. Une carte annoncée à verso du titre ne figure qu’à un très petit nombre d’exemplaire. (Cf. Atabey 110-111. Blackmer, 147. Brunet, II, col. 1956 qui signale que cette édition est "rare".

         La Sfera di Proclo Liceo. (with) Trattato dell’Uso della Sfera.(with)PICCOLOMINI, Alessandro. Della Grandezza della Terra e dell’Acqua. Venice, Giordano Ziletti, 1561.

      Giunti 1573 - FIRST EDITION of first two works, second of the last. Small 4to. pp. (viii) 55 (i) 33 (iii) and ff. (iv) 43 (i). Roman and Italic letter. Woodcut crowned globe with five Medici spheres on first title page, woodcut sphere device on second, woodcut comet within baroque frame with putti device on last, Greek inscription from the Platonic Academy within ornamental frame preceding first text, woodcut initials and small diagrams throughout. Light age-yellowing, very light foxing to one gathering, a couple of small marginal ink spots, light thumbing in a couple of places. A very good, well-margined copy in contemporary Venetian green morocco, panel with small central arms, corner pieces, within two foliate and tendril outer borders, all in blind, spine in five compartments, small blind decoration to each, slight worn at head and tail, remains of paper label, speckled edges. First edition of Egnatio Danti’s translation of Proclus’ ‘Sfera’ and his companion treatise on the use of the sphere, and second edition of Piccolomini’s treatise on the proportions respectively of water and dry land of the Earth. According to Graesse there was a 1540 edition of the latter, but from Ziletti’s dedication a Venetian senator, it is clear that the book was first published in 1558. Houzeau & Lancaster lists a ‘very rare’ 1571 first edition of Danti’s translation and treatise, but it is probably confusing the latter with Danti’s commentary upon the translation of Sacrobosco’s ‘Tractatus de Spaera’ made by his grandfather Pier Vincenzo Rainaldi (called ‘Dante’ after the author of the ‘Divine Comedy’) and first published in 1571. Egnatio Danti (1536-86), referred to as ‘Cosmographer of the Grand Duke of Tuscany’ on these title-pages, was an outstanding scientist who taught at Pisa and Bologna, drew maps for Cosimo de’ Medici, designed a number of astronomical instruments (two of which were set up in Santa Maria Novella, Florence), brought about the reformation of the Gregorian calendar after having detected a 11-day error, wrote the first book to be published in Italy on the astrolabe (1569), and was appointed Papal Cosmographer and Mathematician by Gregory XIII (1580). His translation of Proclus’ ‘Sfera’, dedicated to Isabella de’ Medici, opens with a two-page life of Proclus and contains long and detailed annotations, often flanked by diagrams, for each of the fifteen chapters of the book. It ends with a five-page essay on how to study the stars without using scientific instruments. Proclus (412-485), illustrious Neo-Platonic philosopher from Constantinople, was also a fine astronomer who expounded the division of the celestial sphere with modern accuracy. Danti’s treatise on the use of the sphere is divided into thirty short chapters dealing with, i. a., how to make a sphere, determine the various positions of the sun and stars and the corresponding times of day and night, and study the Zodiac. The proportions of water and dry land was a much debated topic of the time. Like Aristotle, Leonardo was convinced that the quantity of water exceeded that of the land, and that a great quantity of water was collected in caverns underneath the surface of the Earth. Piccolomini was one of the first scientists to maintain the opposite. In his fifteen-chapter essay he provides detailed explanations of why, from the antiquity, the amount of water on the Earth had been thought to exceed that of the land, followed by the exposition of his own revolutionary theory. Alessandro Piccolomini (1508-1578), a typical Renaissance polymath, wrote poems along with scientific, philosophical and legal works. An important scientific collection in a very attractive binding, almost certainly Venetian. Both the Danti and the Piccolomini are also of interest as early Americana. BM STC It.

         Il Rota overo dell'imprese dialogo

I discorsi... sopra l'imprese: recitati nell'Academia d'Urbino: con la Tavola delle cose più notabili, che in loro si contengono. Bologna, Alessandro Benacci, 1575. 8vo.

Et una lettera alla illustre signora, la signora Barbara Callina. Nella quale, oltra le lodi di essa signora si racconta donde i filosofi antichi hebbero cognitione di Dio; e quai credettero,che fossero i principij delle cose. Del Selvaggio Academico Occulto, presidente dignissimo dell'Academia il Nebuloso. Brescia, Borella e Sabbio, 1566. 8vo. (32) ll. With a woodcut emblem on the title-page. (I:). RARE FIRST EDITION of this important treatise on the theory of "imprese', preceded only by Paolo Giovio's Dialogo dell'imprese militari e amorose (Roma, 1555). This form of personalized emblem date from the middle of the 15th century in the "revers de médailles' of Pisanello. The "impresa' was essentially in the same format as the common emblem, but it lacked a subscription and had various peculiar rules of construction. It consisted of a motto and a picture in mutual dependence, neither of which can function meaningfully without the other (cf. D. Drysdall, The Emblem according to the Italian"Impresa' Theorists, in: "The Emblem in Renaissance and Baroque Europe. Tradition and Variety", A. Adams e A.J. Harper, eds., Leiden 1992, pp. 22-32). Also Ammirato's treatise is written in form of a dialogue, the interlocutors being Nino de Nini, bishop of Potenza, the Florentine man of letters Alfonso Cambi, the physician and botanist Bartolomeo Maranta and the man who gave his name to the dialogue, the Neapolitan poet and playwright Bernardino Rota (1508-1575). The work is dedicated to Vincenzo Carafa and contains apart a comprehensive theory of the "impresa' also a very detailed description of the forty-six "imprese' Rota had depicted in his villa in memory of his deceased wife, Porzia Capece (he had already published a volume of poems dedicated to her in 1560). These "imprese' demonstrate how they can be used to construct a visitable space, which functions to a degree as a theatre of memory (cf. G. Arbizzoni, Imprese e poesia nel "Rota' di Scipione Ammirato, in: "Un nodo di parole e di cose. Storia e fortuna delle imprese", Roma, 2002, pp. 37-57, and A. Maggi, Identità e impresa rinascimentale, Ravenna, 1998, pp. 135-146; M. Favaro, Sulla concezione dell'impresa in Scipione Ammirato, in: "Italianistica", XXXVIII/2, 1998, pp. 285-298). Scipione Ammirato, historian, poet, novelist and playwright, was born at Lecce in the kingdom of Naples. His father intending him for the profession of law, sent him to study at Naples, but his own decided preference for literature prevented him from fulfilling his father's wishes. In Naples he frequented several literary circles and became a friend of the poets Bernardino Rota and Angelo di Costanza. Later he entered the church, resided for a time at Venice and was afterwards engaged in the service of Pope Pius IV. He took refuge in Lecce after a turbulent love affair and founded there the Accademia dei Trasformati. In 1569 he went to Florence, where he was fortunate in securing the patronage and support of Duke Cosimo I., who gave him a residence at the Medici Palace and the Villa Zopaja on the understanding that he should write his Istorie Fiorentine (which were published in 1600 and 1647 respectively). In 1595 he was made canon of the cathedral of Florence. Among his other works, some of which were only published after his death, are genealogies of noble families of Naples and Florence (cf. A. Vallone, Scipione Ammirato poeta, in: "Studi e ricerche di letteratura salentina", Lecce, 1959, pp. 29-96; and R. de Mattei, Il pensiero politico di Scipione Ammirato, Milano, 1963, passim; and U. Congedo, La vita e le opere di Scipione Ammirato, Trani, 1904, passim). Edit 16, CNCE 1565; Index Aureliensis 104.844 ; Universal STC, no. 809100; G. Arbizzoni, Emblems as imprese, in: "The Italian Emblem", D. Manuseto e E.L. Calogero, eds., (Glasgow, 2007), p. 13; D.S. Caldwell, The Sixteenth-Century Italian "Impresa' in Theory and Practice, (New York, 2004), pp. 43-57. (II:).RARE FIRST EDITION of Palazzi's disquisitions on "imprese' posthumously published by his brother-in-law, Pietro Viti da Fano. The work consists of four lectures delivered over a period of four days probably toward the end of 1569 and the beginning of 1570 in the Accademia degli Assorditi of Urbino. The work is greatly indebted to Luca Contile's Ragionamento sopra la proprietà delle imprese (Pavia, 1574). In his first Discorso Palazzi says that he was asked by the academy to speak on "imprese' and also provides an explanation of the "impresa' of the Assorditi. In the second Discorso he makes an accurate distinction between livery, "impresa' and emblem and deals with other kinds of symbolic image, such as ciphers and coat-of-arms (cf. S. Maffei, Giovio's 'Dialogo delle imprese militari e amorose' and the Museum, in: "The Italian Emblem", D. Mansueto e E.L. Calogero, eds., Glasgow, 2007, p. 36). In the third Discorso he presents his definition of the "impresa' and deplores the blunting of it in recent times (cf. S. Volterrani, All' 'Hostaria del mal tempo', il realismo emblematico di Padre Antonio Mirandola, in: "The Italian Emblem", D. Mansueto e E.L. Calogero, eds., Glasgow, 2007, pp. 192-193). The final lecture deals mainly with the 'corpi' of 'imprese': where to find them, which ones are suitable, and so forth (cf. D. Caldwell, The Sixteenth Century Italian 'Impresa' in Theory and Practice, New York, 2004, pp. 166-168). Giovanni Andrea Palazzi obtained his first education at Fano and later taught humanities at Gubbio, Imola and Urbino, where he was tutor to Lavinia della Rovere, daughter of Guidobaldo II. He wrote a eulogy of the humanists of Imola (1573). Some of his verses are found in the anthology Per donne romane rime di diversi, edited by Muzio Manfredi (Bologna, 1575). Probably he was one of the founders of the Accademia degli Assorditi of Urbino (cf. G. Arbizzoni, Note su Giovanni Andrea Palazzi e i 'Discorsi sopra le imprese', in: "Res publica litterarum", VI, 1983, pp. 9-18). Edit 16, CNCE32444; Adams, P-76; Universal STC, no. 846131; M. Praz, Studies in Seventeenth Century Imagery, (Roma, 1975), p. 443; G. Savarese e A. Gareffi, La letteratura delle immagini nel Cinquecento, (Roma, 1980), pp. 240-248. (III:) RARE ORIGINAL EDITION of this literary exercise written by a member of the Accademia degli Occulti of Brescia. It contains an eulogy on forests, the nickname of the author being "Il Selvaggio'(the Savage) and a letter addressed to the noblewoman Barbara Callini (d. 1568), who was an influential patron of the academy, who was honored with several poems written by members of it (cf. A. Maggi, Identità e impresa rinascimentale, Ravenna, 1998, pp. 97-115). Little is known about the life of Cosimo Lauro. He was a native of Brescia, wrote a history of the bishops and noble families (never published) of that town and was an active member of the Accademia degli Occulti, founded in the early 1560s, which promoted for nearly twenty years intellectual activities ranging from poetry to mathematical debates. For the academy Lauro wrote a kind of statutory document, Ragionamento fatto dal Seluaggio academico nel nascimento dell'Academia delli Occolti (1565) (cf. L. Bisello, "Di minute scintille un grande fuoco'. Parabola storica e testuale dell'Accademia degli Occulti, in: "Cenacoli: circoli e gruppi letterari, artistici, spirituali", F. Zambon, ed., Milano, 2007, pp. 221-245). Edit 16, CNCE 26867; Universal STC, no. 837639..

         La Universal Fabrica del Mondo La Universal Fabrica del Mondo dell'eccell. m. Lorenzo Anania della citta di Tauerna cosmografo, et teologo ; doue s'ha piena notitia de i costumi, leggi, città, fiumi, monti, prouincie, & popoli del mondo.

      Appresso Gioseppe Cacchis dell' Aquila,, In Napoli, 1573 - One of only two known examples complete with maps First edition. Four parts in one volume. Quarto,(205 by 150 mm). Collation: A4-I4, K4-P4, Q1, Q3-Q5, R4-U4, X1-X2, A1-I4, K4-L4, A4-F4, A4-E4. Title-page with decorative half-page woodcut border and printer's device, 4 pages dedicatory epistle and poem, 2 pages authors consulted, 4 pages errata, Europe 82 numbered leaves, Asia 44 numbered leaves, Africa 23 numbered leaves, [1 leaf blank], and America 20 numbered leaves, 4 fine folding engraved maps on trapezoidal projections, 4 historiated 11-line woodcut initials, one 9-line, one 7-line, and one 3-line, woodcut head- and tail-pieces (some browning and a few pale mostly marginal stains). Contemporary limp vellum, yapp fore-edges, title in manuscript on the spine (chipped with minor loss at the foot of the spine). Exceptionally rare: one of only two known examples complete with all four maps of the continents, the only example in private hands, the other in the Biblioteca Nacional de España. Anania's "Fabrica" is an influential 16th-century geography, a comprehensive survey of Europe, Asia, and the Indies: the fourth part: "Quattro trattato del Nuovo Mondo", 20-pages, concerns the Americas, and is illustrated with a superb map of North and South America and Terra del Fuego, with a portion of Greenland visible upper right entitled "Peru". This map, and the others in the book are very similar in style to Gastaldi's maps published with Mattioli's text of Ptolemy's "La Geografia" of 1547-1548. Burden reports: "For knowledge of this extremely rare map, known in only two examples, the author is grateful to Dr. Frtiz Hellwig. Cartographically it is difficult to identify any sources clearly but the north-east coast of North America appears to derive from the Ruscelli 'Tierra Nueva' of 1561 A Forlani type river system appears in the west along with California". The other maps are: "Europa" extending south to North Africa, east to Asia Minor (laid down, discreet repairs to old fold) "Asia" extending from eastern Africa and the Nile to the East Indies, the Indian Ocean decorated with sea monsters and sailing ships (printer's creases) "Africa" the Atlantic and Indian oceans decorated with sea monsters and sailing ships This first edition of Anania's "La Universal Fabrica del Mondo" is rare. Presumably a very small print run achieved immediate success, with subsequent editions following shortly thereafter in 1576, 1582, and 1597. Anania (1545 – 1609) was an Italian geographer, humanist, historian and theologian; the author of "De natura daemonum", 1570, a treatise supporting the existence of the Devil. A scholarly man, "it is hard to find an authority whose writing was in print before 1573 whom he does not list in his bibliography or cite in his text" (Lach, Asia in the making of Europe, II, 1977, p. 230). Alden & Landis. European Americana, 573/4; Burden 43; Sabin 1364 (the 1576 edition). [Attributes: First Edition]

         In sacram Divi Joannis Apocalypsim Praelectiones D. Guilielmi Fulconis Angli Cantabrigiensis.

      Thomae Purfoetii, [i.e. Thomas Purfoot], Londini, [i.e. London] 1573 - [4], 35, 38-131. Without terminal blank, with woodcut decorative title border. Recent red morocco, gilt. Marbled endpapers. Binding slightly marked. Slight soiling/dog-earing to margins at front, with neat marginal paper corner repairs to the first four leaves. Small worm-hole at head, occasionally touching running title. With the early ink inscriptions of Wiliam Rudge/Rowe, his name and a short motto Latinised, scored through in ink, to the foot of title, and initials 'N.T.' and inscription 'Nat. Tattersall pr. 18d' within the border area itself. Occasional underlining, manuscript Latin annotations and English biblical references to margins, apparently in Tattersall's hand. The first edition in the original Latin of puritan theologian and master of Pembroke College Cambridge William Fulke's (1536/7-1589) commentary on Revelation. Perhaps better known for his disputations with prominent Catholics such as Edmund Campion and exhaustive rebuttals of the Biblical translations of Gregory Martin, Fulke's work also included original Biblical interpretation. Like many Elizabethan Reformists, he saw the prophecy of St. John as a damning vision of the evils of Roman Catholicism in general and the Pontiff in particular. Recent Shakespearean scholarship has even flagged Fulke's comparison of Cleopatra to the whore of Babylon in this work as precedeing Shakespeare's own in Anthony and Cleopatra, first performed c.1607. The early owner of this copy, 'Nat. Tattersall', may have been the vicar of Oswestry of the same name, deprived in 1602. Outside of the UK, ESTC locates copies at only three institutions (Folger, Huntington and Perkins). ESTC S102719. STC 11442. Size: Quarto [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Chronica, das ist: Warhaffte ... Beschreibung, deß Umbkreiß und Gelegenheit der gantzen Welt ... [ORTELIUS, Abraham]. Cosmographia, das ist: Warhaffte ... Beschreibung, deß gantzen Erdbodems ...Frankfurt am Main, (colophon, vols. 2 & 3: printed by Johann Schmidt for Sigmund Feyerabend), 1581. 3 volumes bound as 1. Folio. With 3 title-pages, 18 woodcut illustrations (plus 15 repeats) in vol. 1, mostly half-page. Contemporary blind-tooled leather over wooden boards, red edges, and a pair of brass fastenings (1 clasp and anchor plate lacking), the catchplate on a leather strap and the catchplates and clasp with engraved decoration.

      USTC 659146 (7 copies); VD16, A2067 (8 copies); cf. Adams 852 (German ed. of 1573/74); Gay, Bibl. de Afrique et Arabe 2603 (other eds.); Howgego A76 (German eds. of 1566 and 1576). Second German edition in the present form, extensively illustrated, of "the first detailed description of Ethiopia" [Abyssinia] (Howgego), based largely on his voyages in the years 1515-1527, which included a six-year stay in Ethiopia. Álvarez (ca. 1485?-1536/41), a Portuguese Franciscan missionary, travelled to Ethiopia as chaplain on the voyage of Rui de Lima. He gives us the earliest detailed account of Ethiopia to be based in part on first-hand knowledge and therefore provides our most important primary source for the history, culture and topography of Ethiopia before it was invaded by Islamic troops under Ahmad ibn Ibrahim al-Ghazi of Somalia in 1529. Ethiopia at this time had large Christian and Islamic communities and the woodcut illustrations show court scenes of Ottoman and Christian rulers, siege and battle scenes and ships.The second work is a German translation of Historiae adversus Paganos, a history of the world written by Paulus Orosius (ca. 375-418/23) of Galaecia. Orosius had travelled along the entire Mediterranean coast of Africa, visiting Alexandria in Egypt, so his accounts of those regions carry special authority. The third work is largely a translation of the text of Abraham Ortelius's world atlas, Theatrum orbis terrarum, first published in Latin in 1570 and expanded over the years. The three works were clearly intended for publication together, but each has its own title-page.With an early owner's name cut out of the title-page, another struck through and replaced by a 1703 gift inscription, and a woodcut armorial bookplate on the pastedown. With an excision in the title-page to remove an owner's name the margins of the title-page somewhat tattered, an occasional browned sheet and some small worm holes and marginal waterstains, but further in good condition. An essential source for 16th-century Ethiopia.

        La sfera del mondo. Di nuovo da lui ripolita, accrescuita, & fino à Sei Libri, di Quattro che erano ampliata, & quasi per ogni parte rinovata, & riformata; De le stelle fisse, Libro Uno, Dove di tutte le XLVIII immag in celesti.

      Venice: Presso Giovanni Varisco, e Compagni; Per Giovanni Varisco, & compagni,, 1573 & 1570. Two works bound in one volume, octavo (205 x 147 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title on spine and bottom edge of edge block, deerskin ties. Ff. 30 misnumbered 20. 47 full-page woodcut star maps, 68 full-page woodcut tables, woodcut diagrams and historiated initials. Three or four small wormholes to spine and joints, scattered light foxing and old marginal dampstaining. An excellent copy. Eighth edition of the first printed star atlas, originally published in 1540. All early editions are rare. De la sfera del mondo is a traditional Ptolemaic-Aristotelian geocentric cosmography, but its appendix, De le stelle fisse, "represents the first printed star atlas, containing maps of the stars as opposed to simple pictures of constellations, and introducing the practice of identifying stars by letter, a method later adopted and expanded by Bayer" (Norman). Piccolomini was an early popularizer of science who wrote in the vernacular to extend scientific knowledge beyond the confines of church and university. Later Bishop of Patrae, Piccolomini belonged to the notable Sienese ecclesiastical family that produced two popes, including the great Renaissance figure Pope Pius II.
