ORTELIUS, Abraham (1527-1598).
Antwerp: Anthonis Coppens van Diest, 1573 Single sheet (16 4/8 x 21 2/8 inches, full margins showing the platemark). Latin text on verso. Fine engraved map of Russia, Tartary and Japan, the title and legend within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, the ocean decorated with galleons and a flying fish, with fine hand-colour in full. Each succeeding decade following the first New World discoveries created its own revolution of knowledge, but a watershed in the growth and illustration of geographical information was the atlas published in 1570 by Abraham Ortelius, a businessman native to Antwerp. The Theatrum Orbis Terrarum was the first atlas in the modern sense of the word, as Ortelius compiled the best existing maps, re-engraved them on a standardized format, and included them with text in one volume. This was a landmark innovation, and the Theatrum was arguably the first printed production to have a major impact on the world perspective of contemporary Europeans. Despite their relationship as competitors, Ortelius and his fellow cartographer Gerard Mercator were close friends, and together they represented the major proponents of the most celebrated period in the history of early-modern mapmaking. Ortelius's maps are rightly considered among the most beautiful ever produced, and the seamless combination of science and art is nowhere more visible than in his landmark map of Tartary. Although the element that first strikes a viewer is the high visual appeal of the brightly colored and finely engraved map, it was in fact an extremely sophisticated summary of the most adva … [Click Below for Full Description]

PICCOLOMINI, Alessandro.
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.

An excellent copy. 47 full-page woodcut star maps, 68 full-page woodcut tables, woodcut diagrams and historiated initials. 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. BMC/STC Italian p. 514 (second part only); Houzeau & Lancaster 2491; Kenney 142 & p. 237–8; Norman 1696 (for fifth edition of 1559); Riccardi I, 268-69.

Impresa tipografica incisa su legno ai frontespizi. Alla c. 1r altro frontespizio, con data del 1572: "Spaccio di Maestro Pasquino Romano". Timbri di estinta biblioteca ecclesiastica. Lavori di tarlo al margine interno di alcune cc., prime pagine brunite. Buon esemplare. Seconda e quarta edizione di queste due opere composte da Annibal Caro, nascosto sotto la finzione letteraria dell'inesistente dicitura "Academici dei Banchi" (Predella, Buratto e Fedocco sono nomi fittizi del Caro medesimo); le scritture sono relative a un'aspra polemica di carattere linguistico e politico tra il Caro e Ludovico Castelvetro, che aveva giudicato severamente un sonetto in lode della casa di Valois ("Venite all"ombra dei gran gigli d"oro") scritto dal Caro nel 1553 (Manzoni cita il sonetto nei "Promessi Sposi", alludendo proprio alla diatriba letteraria di cui esso fu il fomite). All'"Apologia" rispose poi in prima persona il Castelvetro, suscitando, come reazione a catena, alcuni violentissimi sonetti del Caro che diffondevano gravissime accuse contro il letterato modenese: ad esempio che avesse fatto assassinare Alberigo Longo, partigiano del Caro, e che egli fosse eretico e sacrilego. Le calunnianti accuse del Caro valsero al Castelvetro un processo del tribunale dell'Inquisizione che lo costrinse a lasciare Roma. Parenti, Luoghi di stampa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spine worn with loss of leather and headbands at spine-ends, corners worn, 4 leaves with minor marginal repairs without loss of text, a very good copy. Black letter and roman type in double column.

B4, pt. 1, HH1, pt. 2 and AAa1, pt. 3 cancelled. First edition, edited by the martyrologist John Foxe. Foxe had established his reputation as the leading chronicler of the English reformation with his first two editions of Acts and Monuments (Foxe's Book of Martyrs) in 1563 and 1570. In the latter he had promised that he would edit a collection of the works of William Tyndale, John Frith, and Robert Barnes; they would not be popularly published again until the Parker Society series of the mid-nineteenth century. "This book neatly combines two concerns that preoccupied Foxe for the remainder of his life. One of these concerns might be labelled apologetic: it was the desire to produce logical and theological arguments, buttressed by historical examples, which would induce Catholics and Jews to abandon their 'superstitions' and embrace the gospel.

La Rochelle, Pierre Davanter [Genève, Jacob Stoer], 1573. 1 fort vol. petit in-8°, veau brun, dos à nerfs orné de petits fleurons dorés, encadrement d'un filet doré sur les plats, médaillons ovale azuré au centre. Reliure de l'époque, qq. épidermures, coiffe inf. élimée, petite fente en tête à la charnière sup., qq. petits mq. de cuir sur les nerfs. Bon exemplaire. (8) ff., 1171 pp., (29) pp. de table. Signatures : *8 [a-z]8 [A-Z]8 [Aa-Zz]8 [AA-FF]8. Rousseurs et mouillures. Contrefaçon genevoise imprimée à la fausse adresse de La Rochelle. D'après E. Droz (Fausses adresses typographiques, dans Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance, XXIII, 1961), cette édition de 1573, tout comme celle de 1571 (à l'adresse de Heildelberg, pour Jean Mareschal) aurait été composée à Genève chez J. Stoer. Celui-ci aurait acheté à Jean Mareschal en 1571 les 576 premières pages et aurait imprimé lui-même les pp. 577 à 1171, ainsi que les 8 premiers feuillets. Dans cette édition de 1573, Stoer a changé le titre, toujours à une fausse adresse pour échapper aux poursuites, et recomposé les 8 premiers feuillets. Ces mémoires sont écrits dans un style naïf et souvent plaisant et couvrent la période de 1513 à 1547. Bien que partiaux (Montaigne les trouve trop favorables à François Ier), ils sont précieux pour qui s'intéresse à cette période, car les frères Du Bellay occupaient des positions éminentes sous le règne de François Ier. Guillaume, homme de guerre et diplomate fut nommé vice-roi du Piémont en 1537.

DANTI EGNAZIO (1536-1586).
Firenze, Giunti, 1573. In - 4ø; 4 cc., 110 pp., 18 cc.; legatura successiva in mezza pergamena con tassello al dorso. Fioriture non gravi. Buon esemplare, timbro di duplicato della Biblioteca Vittorio Emanuele di Roma al frontespizio (Duplum Bibliothecae V. E.). Prima edizione in volgare e unica edizione italiana del XVI secolo dell'Ottica di Euclide a cui si unisce la prima edizione assoluta della "Capita opticorum" di Eliodoro Larisseo. In fine vi Š poi di quest'ultimo testo la riproposizione della versione originale in greco e la traduzione latina. "Optik‚" pubblicato per la prima volta in "Euclidis Megarensis? elementorum libri XII" a Venezia nel 1505 Š considerato il capostipite di tutta la letteratura prospettica antica anche se ancora la trattazione della teoria della visione Š analizzata indipendentemente dalla problematica della sua rappresentazione grafica sul piano. Il "Capita opticorum" di Eliodoro di Larissa Š l'unica opera conosciuta del matematico greco e si ricollega per molti versi al testo euclideo. Entrambe le opere sono tradotte in italiano dall'umanista Egnazio Danti, noto scienziato, matematico e astronomo alla corte di Cosimo I de Medici che va ricordato anche per aver curato e portato a termine l'opera postuma del Vignola "Le due regole della prospettiva pratica" (1583).

Paris: Apud Ioannem Macaeum, 1573. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio (325 x 210mm). [42], 534pp., [6, index]. Woodcut printer’s device of Macé on title, Greek mythological creature of Opinio, amid motto “Dextra vincit, laeva perimit” (The right wins, the left destroys).

At once in the Bibliothèque du Grand Séminaire de Versailles, library label on front pastedown and stamped on title. The former Bibliothèque du Grand Séminaire was a long-standing, ancient library serving the religious community in Versailles until the late 19th century. The location currently serves as La bibliothèque diocésaine. Roman historian Livy saw the past as a storehouse of lessons. His monumental “History” examined the past and revealed precedents for change in the future. In all his “History” exemplified his acute sensitivity to contemporary problems. This sentiment would have been very relevant to the 16th-century reader, one such reason as it could have been a precursor to ideas of revolution. A student of Livy’s “History” would have also been aware of the nearly contemporaneous work “The Discourses on Livy” which was written in the early 16th century (c. 1517) by the Italian writer and political theorist Niccolò Machiavelli, best known as the author of “The Prince” and father of the modern republic. Roman historical works, such as those … [Click Below for Full Description]

22x16 cm. Pasta española época. Tejuelo. Hierros dorados en lomo. 7 h. (2 blancas), 194 fol. numerados, 2 h. (blancas) en papel de hilo (marca de agua de la fábrica de papel de José Silvestre, de Alcoy). Cortes tintados. Copia manuscrita (finales siglo XVIII o principios del XIX) de la edición de Granada (1573). De esta edición se conservan escasos ejemplares, bien porque se imprimieron pocos o por un uso intensivo. Hasta 1804 no se abordó una segunda edición (Madrid, Sancha), lo que seguramente justifica la confección de copias manuscritas. La transcripción respeta rigurosamente el texto, con una interpretación actualizada de la ortografía y de las abreviaturas.
