Hotman, François.
Printed by Henry Bynneman]. One of six different editions printed in 1573 describing the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre as told by an enraged French Huguenot jurist who unintentionally avoided it due to a teaching assignment at the University of Bourges. According to the ESTC, the six editions were produced by four printers, one edition in Basel by T. Guarin, one in La Rochelle by B. Berton, and four in London by Henry Bynneman or W. Williamson, all but one bearing a false location. This offering is an altered version of an earlier printing with two leaves reprinted and one reimposed to remove any mention of Bynneman. Hotman here writes under the pseudonym of Ernestus Varamundus, although the work is also sometimes erroneously attributed to Théodore de Bèze and Hubert Languet. In England, Hotman was the main narrative source for the first, "historical" portion of Marlowe's The Massacre at Paris (Paul Kocher, PMLA {1941}, 349-68). Binding: Early 19th-century speckled calf, spine compartments gilt-stamped and one with a gilt red leather label; covers with gilt double rules, board edges and turn-ins with gilt single rules, all edges gilt. Signed with stamp by Roger de Coverly, an apprentice of Zaehnsdorf. => A very pretty "container" for some very un-pretty history. Provenance: Armorial bookplate of the Marquess of Bute's Cardiff Castle on front pastedown; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. A rather uncommon edition, with searches of WorldCat, NUC, and COPAC revealing only one U.S. copy (Huntington L … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIZZARRI ou BIZZARI (Pietro), BELLEFOREST (François de) traducteur
Paris, Nicolas Chesneau, 1573. In-8° (168 x 110 mm), plein vélin souple de l'époque à rabats, (1) f. de titre, (46), 286 p., (1) f. bl. Rarissime première édition française, dans la traduction de François de Belleforest, "plus rare et plus recherchée que l'édition latine originale publiée à Bâle la même année" (Blackmer). Important représentant de l’historiographie humaniste, Pietro Bizzari (1530-1584) se convertit très tôt au protestantisme et quitta Venise. Entré en relation avec les principales personnalités de l’Europe des humanistes, il exerça d’importantes responsabilités universitaires, éditoriales, politiques et diplomatiques, à Wittenberg, en Angleterre sur la recommandation de Philipp Melanchthon, auprès d’Edouard VI, de James Stuart et de la reine Elizabeth Ier, puis à Bâle, à Anvers au sein du cercle de Plantin et auprès de l’électeur Auguste de Saxe au service duquel il entra. Cet ouvrage demeure l’une des sources contemporaines fondamentales sur le conflit qui opposa, de 1570 à 1573, l'Empire ottoman à la République de Venise appuyée par la Sainte-Ligue, sur l’histoire de la conquête Chypre (1570-1571) par les Turcs et sur les relations entre l’Empire ottoman et Venise, l’auteur ayant été un protagoniste direct des événements et ayant eu accès à des documents inédits et de première main.

Garcaeus, Johannes [the younger].
1573. 8vo. (208) pp. With 2 folding tables and numerous diagrams in the text. Half vellum. Second edition (first published in 1556). "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.). Although the author's high opinion for Copernicus is not based on the latter's heliocentric model, but on his role in the preparation of the Prutenic Tables, Garcaeus does aptly characterise the revolutionary astronomer as "nostrae aetatis artifex praestantissimus" (E8v). - Occasional slight browning; some insignificant edge defects; a very good copy altoget … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plate: 't Beleg van Haerlem' (view at the siege by by the Spaniards in 1573 of the city of Haarlem). Etching/engraving on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This scarse plate orginates from: ‘Beschrijvinge ende lof der stad Haerlem in Holland’ by Samuel Ampzing (Haarlem 24 June 1590 – 29 July 1632). Ampzing was a Dutch minister, poet and purist. Born to the minister Johannes Ampzing in Haarlem, in 1616 Samuel became a minister himself at Rijsoord in Strevelshoek, and in 1619 at the Sint-Bavokerk in Haarlem. In 1617, he began writing a description of Haarlem ‘Beschrijvinge ende lof der stad Haerlem in Holland’ in poetic form, aided by Petrus Scriverius. Its poetry was printed and published in 1628. This history of the city was not superseded until Pieter Langendijk's nearly a century later. As a foreword to this book, Ampzing wrote a dissertation on the Dutch language, in which he also wrote about the rules of rhetoric; this foreword was also sold separately in 1628 under the title ‘Taelbericht der Nederlandsche spellinge’ (‘Treatise on Dutch spelling’). Later he also wrote an extra "Laurel Wreath to Laurens Janszoon Koster" at the end of it. The book includes some plates by Willem Outgertsz Akersloot after designs by Pieter Saenredam and Jan van de Velde.Artists and Engravers: The attractive plates were drawn by Pieter Jansz. Saenredam (Assendelft, 1597 – 1665 Haarlem. Saenredam was a pioneering Dutch painter of church interiors and topographical views. He was among the first architectural painters to emphasise topographical accuracy in his drawings, although in his pain … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

Between a10 and A[1] are two stubs which might be cancels, but the collation agrees with Adams. In the Sextus, a superb 3/4 -page woodcut of pope Boniface VIII receiving the book of Decretals from a kneeling St Gregory, his colleagues grouped behind. This cut is repeated in the Clementinae. With 3 woodcut tables of consanguinity and affinity, and the woodcut devices of Plantin & co. (signed P. B.), and that of Nuyts alone (on the two titlepages). With engraved initials. Contemporary full parchment, manuscript title on spine, remains of ties. Adams B2447.

The second and third parts in the present volume were farmed-out by Plantin for printing to Philip Nuyts, and bear the latter's own two titlepages with the date 1572 and his printer's mark (in one of these, a reader anxious not to be prurient, has inked out a lascivious image).

THE PRE-SOCRATICS - HERACLITUS, DEMOCRITUS, EMPEDOCLES, XENOPHAN, CLEANTHOS, TIMONUS, EPICHARMUS. - [EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THE FRAGMENTS OF THE PRE-SOCRATICS]
(Geneva), Stephanus, 1573. 8vo. Later (ab. 1850) green half calf with gilt title-label to spine. Spine with a bit of wear, especially to upper capital. Light occassional brownspotting and a light damp stain to ab. 10 leaves. A fine copy. Annotations in ink to front free end-paper and to some blank pages. Pencil annotations to final free end-paper and to margins. 222 pp. ¶ The very rare first edition of the first anthology of pre-Socratic thought. This milestone publication, edited by Henri Estienne and with Latin notes by J.J. Scaliger, constitutes the first printing of the surviving fragments of Pre-Socratics - the originators of Greek philosophy - and the first work devoted solely to Pre-Socratic thought. Up until it was published, the modern world had only known the Pre-Socratics indirectly, e.g. through references in Plato or Aristotle. <br>"Modern interest in early Greek philosophy can be traced back to 1573, when Henri Estienne (better known under his Latinized name Stephanus) collected a number of presocratic fragments in "Poesis philosophica"." (Giannis Stamatellos: "Introduction to Presocratics", p. 7). <br><br>Within the history of modern philosophy and modern thought in general, the importance of the present work can hardly be over-estimated. Containing for the first time on their own the fragments of the pre-Socratic philosophers: Heraclitus, Parmenides, Pythagoras, Empedocles, Xenophanes, Cleanthes, Democrates, etc., this foundational work is "A VOLUME OF MAJOR IMPORTANCE TO THE HISTORY OF WESTERN THOUGHT, which rightly belongs on the same shelf with the first … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

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.

Bizzarri (oder: Bizzari), Pietro::
Paris, Sebastien Nivelle,, 1573. 48, 286 pp, 1 f (blank). With folded birds-eye view in woodcut. 8° (165 x 115 mm). Rebound late 20th century by using limp Italian vellum of the 16th century. Atabey 110-111 (for the Latin edition); IA. 119.709; Cioranesco 3425 (no printer); Blackmer 147; Göllner 1612 (Chesneau imprint). Very rare first edition in French language, translated from the Latin by Francois de Belleforest, and published in the same year as the Latin edition. Pietro Bizzarri (1530 - 1584) had converted early to Protestantism and had the leave Venice therefore. For several years he had lived in England and Germany, and he is remembered as an important humanistic historian. Later onwards he had commented on the conflicts between Venice, the Holy League, and the Ottoman Empire, and especially this work on the conquest of Cyprus is regarded as the best contemporary report. This is a variant issue with the imprint of Sebastian Nivelle; another imprint with the same collation was published the same year in Paris by Nicolas Chesneau. According to Blackmer is this French edition much rarer than the Latin original published at Basle the same year. This copy is also remarkable as it is an entirely complete copy with the map/birds-eye view of Methoni and Navarino (here bound in after the introduction). This map (273 x 398 mm) is mentioned on the title-page verso, "Le Relieur notera, qu'au feuillet 285 doibt mettre le plant & Aßiete des Villes de Modon & Navarin", but it appears, again according to Blackmer ("may never have been published since it appears to be missing in ever … [Click Below for Full Description]

DU BELLAY (Martin)
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. Fin politique, il était informé de nombreux secrets d'Etat, et du Piémont, renseignait le r … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

TITIUS LIVIUS PATAVINUS (59 BC-17AD) [LIVY] – MACÉ, Jean, printer (d. 1588?)
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). Period French calf stamped in gilt with central wreath lozenge and monogram PB over semy of fleur-de-lis, marbled endpapers; (title lightly browned and stained, some slight wear, edges rubbed, otherwise good). 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]

ORTELIUS, Abraham
Antwerp: (1573-[98]). 360 x 490 mm., in fine later wash colour, with some browning in the margin, not affecting the map, otherwise in good condition.; This map of Ireland is one of the most attractive ever published. It is by the great cartographer Abraham Ortelius who compiled the first modern atlas as we know it entitled 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. His map of Ireland is derived from his own wall map of the British Isles published in 1564. It first appeared in 1573 in the 'Additamentum' to the atlas. This is an example with French text to the verso from the 1598 edition in the third state with the re-hatching of the coastline.
