        Tractatus brevis et utilis, de erigendis figuris coeli, verificationibus, revolutionibus & directionibus.

      Wittenberg, Johann Schwertel / Samuel Selfisch d. Ä., 1573.. (208) SS. Mit 2 Falttabellen sowie zahlr. Diagrammen im Text. Halbpergament. 8vo.. Zweite Ausgabe (EA 1556), eingeteilt in 22 Propositionen. "Brief Treatise on Erecting Figures of the Sky, Verifications, Revolutions and Directions [...] Garcaeus, who was born at Wittenberg and became a professor at Greifswald in 1561, was also the author of works which, judging from their titles, were more purely astronomical and meteorological [...] The work on erecting figures or schemes of the sky in on the other hand essentially astrological, although involving the determination of an accurate astronomical basis for such judgment, and Garcaeus expresses the request, 'in the name of all the studious', that his 'dearest teacher' at Wittenberg, Caspar Peucer, will sometime communicate the method of this Ptolemic doctrine to them. There also is given a poem covering a page and a half of Caspar Peucer to Garcaeus. - The phase of astrology to which the treatise [...] is chiefly devoted is genitures and their proper determination as a basis for prediction. There is much discussion how to determine the exact moment of birth. This problem involves that difference between true and astronomical days called equation of days [...]" (Thorndike X, 103f.). Obwohl er Kopernikus nicht wegen seines heliozentrischen Weltbilds schätzt, sondern in erster Linie wegen seiner grundlegenden Rolle bei der Verfertigung der 1551 erschienenen Prutenischen Tafeln (mit denen sich die Standorte von Sonne, Mond und Planeten berechnen ließen), charakterisiert Garcaeus den revolutionären Astronomen doch treffend als "nostrae aetatis artifex praestantissimus" (E8v). - Teils schwach gebräunt; einige unbedeutende Randläsuren; insgesamt gutes Exemplar. Sehr selten; das letzte Exemplar irgendeiner Ausgabe 1985 auf einer deutschen Auktion. - VD 16, G 463. BNHCat G 57. Zinner 2623. Lalande 98. Poggendorff I, 843. Kat.

        Historia naturale tradotta da Lodovico Domenichi con le postille in margine nele quali vengono segnalate le cose notabili citate da altri autori.

      Giovanni Vidali 1573 - Vinegia (Venise), appresso Giovanni Vidali, 1573. In 4 de 1100pp., reliure en plein parchemin souple de l'époque, plats et dos froissés et salis, manquent les lacets, avec 36 grandes lettrines historiées, portrait de l'auteur sur la page de titre, réparée dans l'angle inférieur externe, les deux pages suivantes sont aussi réparées sans gravité, manque de papier d'origine aux pages 247 et 249 réparé, affectant deux lignes en bas du texte, ex-libris de l'époque manuscrit à l'encre noire sur la page de titre, verso de la page de titre entièrement recouverte d'un texte manuscrit à l'encre noire, rousseurs éparses, papier bruni à certains feuillets, mouillures et petites taches de graisses dans les marges, bon exemplaire. Cette importante somme est une encyclopédie des Sciences Naturelles, une étrange combinaison de perspicacité, d'érudition et de connaissance populaire. Mais la grande valeur de cet ouvrage réside dans le fait qu'il révèle les connaissances que possédaient les contemporains de l'auteur aussi bien que celles de ses prédécesseurs, surtout parce que le plus souvent dans ses ecrits, Pline n'hésite pas à révéler ses sources. Le volume se décompose comme suit: après l'introduction, le livre 2 traite de la Cosmologie, les livres 3 à 6 traitent de la Géographie, le livre 7 d'Anthropologie, 8 à 11 de Zoologie, les livres 12 à 19 abordent la Botanique, les livres 20 à 32 traitent de la Médecine, enfin les livres 33 à 37 sont dediés à la minéralogie et la Sculpture, incluant le plus ancien compte rendu connu sur l'Art des anciens.

        CIVITATES ORBIS TERRARUM

      [Antwerp and Cologne], 1573. Apparently the FIRST EDITIONS of each volume . Hardcover. An Invaluable Visual Record of Medieval Europe, Complete with 363 Double-Page Maps and Views. 425 x 298 mm (16 3/4 x 11 3/4"). Six volumes bound in three. Apparently the FIRST EDITIONS of each volume. IN RECENT ORNATE RED MOROCCO REPLICA BINDINGS BY COURTLAND BENSON, covers panelled in gilt, raised bands, spines densely gilt in compartments featuring multiple antique tools. COMPLETE WITH six engraved allegorical title pages and 363 FINE ENGRAVED PLATES OF THE CITIES OF THE WORLD, two of these (Antwerp and Cracow) large folding plates, the rest double-page. Koeman II, B & H 1-6; NMM III, 459; Phillips, "Atlases," 59 (citing the 1612 edition). About 20 perecent of the plates carefully cleaned to brighten them, the other plates with only minor yellowing and slight foxing (mostly at edges), a handful of plates in weak impressions, other insignificant defects, but A REMARKABLY ATTRACTIVE SET with few of the almost inevitable signs of use internally (virtually no tears, for example, or fraying, dampstaining, thumbing, smudging, or worming), the engravings consistently clean and fresh, and the beautifully executed retrospective bindings unworn. This is an uncommonly seen complete set, with none of the typically fatal condition problems, of an invaluable visual record of Medieval Europe. The first serious attempt to give graphic representations of the world's main cities, this is a book, in Tooley's words, that is "a wonderful compendium of knowledge of life in Europe in the sixteenth century" and "one of the most valuable sources remaining to the student and historian of" that period. Tooley also calls it, more simply, "one of the great books of the world." The 16th century is notable for three remarkable cartographical achievements: the first uniform modern world atlas, Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum"; the first printed marine atlas, Waghenaer's "Spieghel der Zeevaerdt"; and the present volumes, the first uniform collection of plans and views of the cities of the world. Unlike the first two projects, the "Civitates" was not undertaken by one man, but was the result of teamwork, involving principally Georg Braun (or Bruin) and Frans Hogenberg, along with Joris Hoefnagel (and other contributors, who included Pieter Bruegel and Jacob van Deventer). Hogenberg seems to have been the most discerning commercial motivator of the group, recognizing that the atlas of Ortelius invited the creation of a complementary atlas of cities, and his assessment of audience needs was astute, as the project became a considerable success. The "Civitates" contains prospects, bird's-eye views, and maps of 546 cities, most of them in Europe, but some also from the Middle East and North Africa, and two from the New World (Mexico City and Cuzco). These are the first engraved views of many of the locations. One of the most charming features of the work is the depiction of locals in native dress, often seen in the foreground of the maps. In some they are nobles enjoying their leisure, in others, peasants hard at work. Tooley observes that in addition to its topographical value, the "work is of great interest as a record of the domestic life of the period, the town views, heraldic coats-of-arms, rural scenes, land and water transportation, public buildings, etc. It can make an equal appeal to the historian, geographer, the student of costume or the plain admirer of decorative art." Robert Burton agreed; in his 1621 "Anatomy of Melancholy," he recommends perusing "these books of Citties" as an uplifting activity for the armchair traveller. The combination of an initial 45-year span between the publication of the first and last volumes, and the plundering of copies for individual plates as decorative objects has inevitably depleted the number of complete copies of the "Civitates," and it shows up frequently sold as four or five volumes (of six) and very often with plates missing, no matter the number of volumes. Given its publication history and the fact that the work encourages avid readership, complete copies, when found, are almost invariably in deplorable shape. Our copy is distinguished by being complete and by having only defects that one can readily tolerate without great effort of forgiveness.

L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties: la première décrit le rôle des enseignants ainsi que les devoirs et les droits des élèves (étude, discipline, jeux); la seconde établit le programme des études humanistiques et littéraires, réparti sur sept années, avec notamment l'enseignement du théâtre et la mise en scène de petits spectacles; enfin la troisième partie évoque le programme de l'éducation religieuse dispensée au cours de la même période. "Verreept, sans être lui-même un jésuite, était un sympathisant de leur programme, mais il était aussi un professeur entièrement gagné aux méthodes pédagogiques déjà en usage aux Pays-Bas ( ). Son Institutionum Scholasticarum libri tres (Anvers, 1573) intégrait, et louait, le cursus jésuite qu'il avait recueilli à partir des programmes non publiés de neuf collèges différents" (Moss). Quelques rousseurs et salissures. Bon exemplaire relié au 18e siècle. Cf. Ann Moss, "Les recueils de lieux communs" (Droz, 2002), pp.290-291. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gründtlicher Bericht und Erklärung von der Juden Handlungen unnd Ceremonien, schelten und fluchen wider unseren Herren Jesum Christum und seine Kirchen: jren ubelthaten die sie alle tag wider die Christen handlen auch den unmenschlichen Wucher den sie brauchen

      Basel, S. Apiarius 1573.. 4 nn., LIX num., 1 nn. Bll. Karton. 19,5 x 14 cm. VD 16 L 2356. - Erste Ausgabe dieses seltenen Antijudaicums, in dem den Juden im religiösen wie wirtschaftlichen und kriminellen Bereich alle einschlägigen Laster und Verbrechen angedichtet werden. "In seiner Basler Zeit verfasste Marcus Lombardus eine zweite antijüdische Schrift. Diese stark polemische Druckschrift richtet sich an ein christliches Publikum und kann im weitesten Sinn als Weiterführung der handschriftlich erhaltenen Disputation, die wahrscheinlich vor 1552 entstanden ist, in rein traktathafter Form verstanden werden. Der Einfluss Luthers, der ab 1543 eine äußerst judenfeindliche Haltung einnimmt, ist offensichtlich" (G. Knoch-Mund, Leben und Werk des Marcus Lombardus, S. 348). - Marcus Lombardus, geboren als Sohn des Abramo da Conegliano zwischen 1510 und 1530 in Verona, konvertierte wohl nach 1550 vom Judentum zur Lutheranismus; wie für Konvertiten dieser Zeit nicht unüblich, wurde er auch gleich zum Antisemiten. - Etwas stockfleckig, stellenw. bräunende Feuchtigkeitsränder.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Known in the German-speaking world as "Ernst von Osterreich," this son of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II and Maria of Spain, was educated with his brother, Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II; in 1573 and 1587 he was a candidate for the throne of Poland; from 1576 on he served as governor of the Archduchy of Austria in 1590 he was named governor of Inner Austria; from 1594 until his death he served as governor of Spanish Netherlands. ALS in Italian, 1p lettersheet, 7½" X 12", Vienna, Austria, 1579 March 26. Very good. Slight bit of age toning and quite minor foxing; inconspicuous small paper loss at left margin (¼" X 2¼") bears old but expert replacement. Overall attractive, boldly written and easily legible. Writing to his cousin, the Duke of Savoy (Emmanuel Philibert, 1528-80, Duke of Savoy 1553-80), it reads (translation): "Sir: Mr. de la Cruz, your ambassador, gave me a letter from you several days ago, and although I wanted to answer it before this, I have been kept from it by various things, and I hope you will not take offense at my delay. You may be sure that I shall always endeavor to do for you all that I can, as I have often told Mr. de la Cruz, who has probably so informed you. He has told me of the warmth and good will that you feel for me, which I feel certain of, and I do not know how to repay you except in kind as you may always find in everything that I can very well do you for. May God keep you as I would wish...." Signed simply "Ernesto" with a flourish. Integral address leaf present, on which Ernest notes "Al Senor duque de Saboya my primo," with a small deep burgundy wax seal bearing his family crest still present. A choice example of this autograph. Ernest died at the relatively young age of 42, making his autograph material quite scarce.

        Europa Totius Orbis Partium amoenissima commoda iam recens absolutaque Descriptio

      Acquaforte e bulino, prima del 1573, firmata in lastra nel cartiglio da Joannes e Lucas Doetecum. Esemplare nel secondo stato, pubblicato nella prima edizione del 1578. Magnifica prova, con bellissima coloritura coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Al verso, testo latino e numero di pagina in carattere romano, V. Gerard de Jode, era cartografo, incisore, tipografo ed editore nella città di Anversa, attivo all?incirca nello stesso periodo di Ortelius. Nel 1547 ottenne il privilegio per l?attività editoriale, tuttavia non fu mai in grado di rappresentare un?effettiva minaccia per il suo rivale in affari. Per ironia della sorte, pubblicò il famoso Mappamondo del rivale, in otto fogli, nel 1564. Il suo atlante più importante, lo Speculum Orbis Terrarum, oggi estremamente raro, non poté essere pubblicato fino al 1578, ovvero otto anni dopo il Theatrum Orbis Terraum di Ortelius, che aveva ottenuto il monopolio per l?editoria cartografica ad Anversa. Le carte del De Jode furono finemente tradotte su rame nel tipico stile fiammingo dai fratelli Joannes e Lucas van Doetecum, i migliori intagliatori di mappe del tempo. Alla morte di Gerard, il figlio Cornelis pubblicò, nel 1593, una ristampa accresciuta dell?atlante. Etching with engraving, before 1573, signed on plate in the title by Joannes and Lucas Doetecum. Example in the second state, published in the first edition of 1578. Magnificent proof, contemporary colour, with margins, in perfect condition. In verse, Latin text and page number in roman font, V. Gerard de Jode, was a cartographer, engraver, printer and publisher in Antwerp, active around the same period of Ortelius. In 1547 he obtained the privilege for the publishing business, but was never able to represent a real threat to his business rival. Ironically, he published a major rival of the Globe, in eight sheets, in 1564. His most important atlas, Speculum Orbis Terrarum, now extremely rare, could not be released until 1578, ie eight years after the Theatrum Orbis Terraum of Ortelius, who had obtained a monopoly for the Cartographic Publishing Antwerp. The papers of De Jode were finely translated copper in typical Flemish brothers Joannes and Lucas van Doetecum, the best engravers of maps of the time. On the death of Gerard, the son Cornelis published in 1593, a reprint of the atlas increased. Anversa Antwerpen The New Hollstein, The Doetecum Family part III, p. 37, 561. 470 362

      Gedruckt zu Frankfurt am Mayn 1573 Allen Künstlern als Malern, Goldschmiden, Bildhauern..., 1 vol. in-8 format à l'italienne rel. moderne plein vélin, Gedruckt zu Frankfurt am Mayn, 1573, 1 f. (titre), 3 ff. (Vorrede), 107 ff. chiffrés - Beau recueil des illustrations de l'Histoire de Tite Live établi par le grand graveur d'origine zurichoise Jost Amman. Chaque feuillet d'illustration, gravé d'après les dessins de Johann Bocksberger, est enrichi dans les marges supérieures et inférieures d'un texte versifié rédigé par Heinrich Rebenstock à partir de l'oeuvre de Tite Live. Les superbes gravures sur bois présentent une très grande richesse de motifs, tant au niveau de l'architecture que de la faune ; les guerres puniques sont ainsi l'occasion d'introduire l'exotisme avec les dromadaires et les éléphants, et la planche 42 illustre le combat de Marcus Attilius Regulus contre un dragon ("Marcus Attilius Regulus bringt ein grossen Drachen um"). Les scènes de bataille sont évidemment très nombreuses, et les batailles navales succèdent aux sièges, les exécutions aux harangues, les ambassades aux triomphes. Les ff. 105 et 108 sont absents, mais un feuillet coupé en marges et remonté sans son texte a été intercalé après le dixième feuillet (il porte bien le monogramme de Jost Amman, et il s'agit manifestement du f. 105 ou 108). Les derniers feuillets 104, 106 et 107 ont été recoupés en marge (sans aucune atteinte aux illustrations, et sans atteinte ou avec atteinte très mineure au texte) et remontés. Rare et bon exemplaire proposant ainsi 107 ff. sur les 108 ff. The illustrations, conceived after drawings by Johann Bocksberger, are accompanied by verses by Heinrich Peter Rebenstock. The beautiful woodcuts, many of them battle scenes, contain a wealth of figures (camels, elephants and even a dragon can be found !). Lacking probably one leave in the "Vorrede" (frontispice) and leaves 105 and 108, but one leave, cut on its margins and bearing Amman's monogram but without his text and number was restuck and inserted after leave 10 (certainly the leave 105 or 108). Leaves 104, 106 and 107 were a bit cut on margins and restuck. A very interesting copy, almost complete with 107 on the 108 leaves. Brulliot, 1832 ; Brunet, I, 236 Allemand

Ad serenissimam atq; illustrissimam Elizabetham, Angliæ, Franciæ et hyberniæ virginem reginam. Frankfurt, Georgium Corvinum [Georg Rabe], impensis Sigismundi Feyerabend, 1573. 4:o. (18),+ (2, blanka),+ 281,+ (1) s. Sista sidan med utgivaren Feyerabends vapen i träsnitt och med Glads dito på titelsidans baksida. Titelbladet med bortklippt namnteckning i nederkant, något lagerfläckig, mest i början och mot slutet. Välbevarat något senare pergamentband, ryggen med handtextad titel, blå stänksnitt. Ur Johan Henrik Schröders bibliotek, med hans exlibris och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Bibl. danica sp. 41f. Thesaurus 295. Warmholtz 2714. Carlander III, 368ff. Första upplagan av Rasmus Glads stora diktverk om drottning Margareta I:s historia, lämpligt nog dedicerat till den engelska drottningen Elisabeth I. Erasmus Glad eller Cimbrius Erasmus Michaëlis Laetus (1526-82) var humanist och professor i teologi, men befann sig huvudskligen på resande fot runt om i Europa, där han skrev en mängd verk på vers; om sjöväsen, dedicerat till den venetianska republiken och dess doge, Moraliska samtal mellan växter och djur och även en allmän dansk historia (Res danica), dedicerad till danske kungen Kristian III. Det växte dock fram ett missnöje med hans långa utlandsvistelser och att han därvid misskötte sitt uppdrag som professor. Han avskedades 1574, men njöt fortfarande kunglig gunst och fick istället en gård i Köpenhamn och underhåll, så att han på ålderns höst kunde njuta sitt otium. Historieprofessorn Johan Henrik Schröders (1791-1857) bibliotek, "fullt af gamla sällsynta svenska böcker", såldes på bokauktion 1866 i Uppsala efter tryckt förteckning. Enligt Henrik Klemming rådde auktionsdagen sådan snöyra i Uppsala att många, både anbud och spekulanter, inte kunde komma fram till auktionen i tid. Böckerna såldes även ofta mycket billigt

Ex-libris [Luigi Imolae, physician to Pope VII] pasted on to pasted down front free end paper. Title written in contemporary hand to upper part of spine. Names written in contemporary hand and crossed out, except for 'Livius' and 'Imolae', to first title page. Very light uniform browning to leaves. All in all a fine and clean copy. (87), 477, (11), 328, (4) pp.. First edition of Charpentier's famous comparison of Aristotle and Plato - one of the most thorough and important works of its kind - which came to influence the way that the Renaissance viewed the two great thinkers and their works. The work, which is profoundly anti-Ramist and also as such drew great attention, constitutes a fabulous determination of the joint legacy of Aristotle and Plato and is one of the works that best illustrates the nuanced basis of Renaissance scholarship and philosophy. It is a curious but generally accepted conception that with the rise of the Renaissance came the fall of Aristotle. It is a fact that with the recovery of many lost works of ancient literature, the widening of the range of classical studies and the renewed interest in Plato, Aristotle was no longer the sole authority on a huge number of fields, as he to a certain extent had been viewed during the Middle Ages. That this should mean a total ignorance of the teachings of Aristotle must be considered somewhat of a myth (though a very frequently repeated one), and in fact with the grand humanists of the late 15th and early 16th century, the study of Aristotle fits perfectly with the broader comprehension of scholarship. The idea of nearing the thought of Aristotle to that of Plato and vice-versa is something that understreams much original thought of the Renaissance, and Charpentier's work, which explicitly and thoroughly compares and reconciles the two great thinkers, gives us a fabulous insight into Renaissance thought, as it is rarely presented."It was published at Paris in 1573. Charpentier shows a knowledge of other writers in this tradition, namely Boethius, Bessarion, George Trebizond, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola, Symphorien Champier, and Fox Morcillo, among others." (Riccardo Pozzo, "The Impact of Aristotelianism on Modern Philosophy", p. 20). Jacques Charpentier (1521-74), Professor of medicine and philosophy, Charles IX's physician, taught mathematics at the Collège de France and philosophy at the Collège de Bourgogne and was later appointed Rector of the University of Paris. He passionately defended Peripateticism and was renowned for his philosophical and religious intolerance. Despite his remarkable merits he is today perhaps best known for his feud with Petrus Ramus, French humanist and protestant convert with a liberal approach to Aristotelian teaching. In Ramus Charpentier saw the impact of Lorenzo Valla's criticism or Aristotle: "He thought that with Ramus the true idea of knowledge was in danger of eclipse", as expressed in the present work. Charpentier is often referred to as a Anti-Ramist due to his many - often fierce and personal - attacks on Ramus's teaching:"More intellectual provocative were three attacks by Jacques Charpentier. In 1551 as rector of the University Charpentier ruled that because Ramus did not teach the Aristotelian logic required by the statutes, his pupils could not enjoy the privileges of Paris university students. Rasmus appealed first to the assembly of regents of Philosophy and later to the Parliament of Paris. Before the Parliament Ramus outlined a programme of study in which grammar, rhetoric, and dialectic led first to natural and moral philosophy and later theology or law. He argued that his method of teaching avoided wasting time on scholastic technicalities and produced graduates who were better prepared for practical life. The effectiveness of this speech and the support of his patron helped him to avoid censure and obtain a royal lectureship." (Mack, A History of Renaissance Rhetoric 1380-1620, Pp. 153-4)."by 1565 he was leading opposition to the naming of Jacques Charpentier (no relation), a long-time adversary, to the royal chair of mathematics. Charpentier, who had by then succeeded Ramus as the Cardinal de Lorraine's protégé and who enjoyed Jesuit support, kept his chair; and Ramus, ever more threatened, in 1567 again fled Paris, taking refuge with the Prince de Condé." (DSB)
