Il était considéré par ses contemporains comme l'un des meilleurs poètes de son temps, comparable au "Prince des poètes français", Clément Marot. De son vivant, il eut l'habileté de ne rien publier, afin de ne pas compromettre sa carrière de poète officiel du roi Henri II, d'où ses éditions posthumes Il avait ainsi pris soin de faire détruire une première édition de ses œuvres en 1547, dont deux exemplaires seulement subsistent.

        Asiae Nova Descriptio

      " Seconda versione della carta dell'Asia di Abraham Ortelius, inserita negli esemplari del ""Theatrum Orbis Terrarum"" di Ortelius a partire dal 1574. Deriva dalla mappa murale del continente dello stesso Ortelius, a sua volta basata sulle mappe di Giacomo Gastaldi (1559-1561). Esemplare tratto dall'edizione latina del 1603, edita da J. B. Vrients.

" Second version of Ortelius' map of Asia, pinted from 1574 in the ""Theatrum Orbis Terrarum"". Example from the latin edition of 1603. A fine example with fine later hand colour, showing perfectly repaired worm holes in the margins, otherwise, very good condition. Covers from Europe and Africa eastward to include all of Asia, the East Indies, Japan, and parts of New Guinea and Australia. From west to east, this map offers numerous elements worthy of further study. The Caspian Sea, according to the convention of the time, is presented on an east-west rather than north-south axis. Arabia is projected in a distended form. Further east in western China, Cayamay lacus is depicted. This mythical body of water was postulated by Ortelius to be the source great rivers of Southeast Asia. Indeed, Ortelius crisscrosses East Asia with a vast network of waterways advocating his belief that a water route existed through China to the North Sea and hence, via the Northeast Passage, to Europe. Still further east Japan appears in a distorted top heavy projection that resembles a tadpole. To the south Luzon is absent from the Philippine Islands. In the extreme southeast portion of the map Australia appears as 'Terrae Incognitae Australis.' East of China, two sailing ships ply the waters of the Pacific. A large decorative title cartouche adorns the lower left hand quadrant. Ortelius based this map on his own wall map of 1567. Literature: Suarez, T., Early Mapping of South-East Asia, p. 164-170.

Un volume in-16 (11,1x7,7 cm) de 280-(4) pages . Très légèrement court de tête, petite déchirure restaurée à la page de titre Denis Zacaire a dépensé la fortune familiale dans la recherche de la pierre philosophale. Il avait noté dans un cahier des milliers de recettes extraites des textes alchimiques et avait engagé les fonds destinés à ses études de droit à l'achat d'un laboratoire. Après des années de recherches infructueuses il rencontra un vieux sage qui lui conseilla d'arrêter de se disperser dans des procédés donnés par des personnages douteux et d'étudier plutôt les écrits des maîtres.

Slightly cropped. "Denis Zacaire or Dionysius Zacharius (1510?-1560 or 1570?) was born in Guyenne and sent by his parents first to Bordeaux and then to Toulouse, in order to study law. But his masters in both universities were alchemists; and by the time he got to Toulouse, Zacaire carried a notebook of thousands of recipes abstracted from alchemical texts and had committed the funds supplied for his legal studies to the purchase of a laboratory. When his tutor died of a fever contracted during alchemical endeavours, Zacaire's parents discovered his hermetic inclination and cut off his money. They conveniently died soon after, so that Zacaire, at his majority, let out their estate and devoted all of his income to a long series of processes suggested to him by an unknown Italian in Toulouse, an old abbe called the Philosopher. After raising more money from his relatives on the expectation of his going to Paris to seek a legal position, Zacaire executed some one hundred diverse experiments. After three years in Paris, he was commissioned by Antoine d'Albret, King of Navarre, to teach the secrets of alchemy for a very handsome fee. On his return after the completion of this assignment, Zacaire met, as seemed to be his wont, a stray old wise man who advised him to stop collecting processes and to study instead the writings of the masters. After two years he devised an entirely original experiment that, in 1550, yielded the Divine Tincture. Shortly after this success, his new bride murdered him in his sleep at Cologne and escaped with their servant and Zacaire's precious powder. He wrote but one work, Opuscule tres-excellent de la vraye Philosophic naturelle des metaulx (Lyon, Benoist Rigaud, 1574), which included commentaries on the Turba" (in "Alchemy a comprehensive bibliography of the manly P.Hall Collection") FINE COPY IN FULL MOROCCO BINDING Caillet [III, 11570], Brunet [V, 1516], Baudrier [III, 312] In 16 140g.

Complete with all 65 maps called for, each measuring ab. 19 x 26 cm. A great part of the maps have some background shadowing from the printers ink, mainly due to the fact, that this is the third Ruscelli-edition, where the plates have been used before. 3 printer's wood-cut devices and 20 smaller and larger woodcuts in the text. 2 woodcuts with Ptolemy shown observing. ¶ Third edition of Ruscelli's translation from Venice, 1561. The maps are printed from the same plates, with the exception of Ptolemy's map of the world, for which Malomba had returned to the original conical projection of Ptolemy. Moreover, one map is added: the map of "Territorio di Roma". In general the maps are enlarged copies of Gastaldi's maps from the edition of 1548 which came out in 8vo. The Ruscelli translation contains an important innovation, namely the division of the world map into two parts, one for the Old World and one for the New, as seen on the plate "Tavola Universal", depicting the 2 hemispheres. The atlas contains 27 ptolemaic maps and 38 new. 1 World, 1 Hemisphere, 10 Europe, 4 Africa, 12 Asia and 38 others. 10 of the maps relate to America.Philipps I:380. Sabin 66505.

He travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne. He is known for portraits and topographical views as well as historical allegories. He also produced scenes of contemporary historical events.George Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the "Civitates Orbis Terrarum".The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. The sixth and the final volume appeared in 1617. This great city atlas, edited by Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg, eventually contained 546 prospects, bird-eye views and map views of cities from all over the world. Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the work, and was greatly assisted in his project by the close, and continued interest of Abraham Ortelius, whose Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was, as a systematic and comprehensive collection of maps of uniform style, the first true atlas.

Later blind-stamped full calf, with gold lettered leather title label to spine. Raised bands. Two metal clasps. Decorative woodcut initials. Book housed in a modern custom-made orange cloth covered clamshell box, with gold lettering to spine.Originally published in 1536, Jean Calvin's seminal work of Protestant systematic theology "Institutio Christianae Religionis" was highly influential in the Western World. The book was first published in Latin in 1536, and in its original French language in 1541, with the definitive editions appearing in 1559 (Latin) and in 1560 (French). The first English language edition of Calvin's "Institutio Christianae Religionis" appeared in London in 1561, and was prepared by Thomas Norton, the son-in-law of Thomas Cramner. The book was reprinted in 1562. In 1574, a new edition of Norton' s translation appeared, with three hundred errors corrected and various other revisions and updates. The 1574 Norton translation remained the standard English translation of Calvin's Institutes for two centuries, until its final printing in Glasgow in 1762. "The Institution of Christian Religion" was written as "an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some previous knowledge of theology and covered a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone and Christian liberty. It vigorously attacked the teachings of those Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism, to which Calvin says he had been "strongly devoted" before his conversion to Protestantism." (For more information, see: Bruce Gordon's "John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion: A Biography" (2016), Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press).Binding partly soiled and discolored. Closed tear along front joint. Head and tail of spine chipped. One decorative metal clasp detached but present. Ex-library bookplate on inside of front cover, and stamp along fore-edge of first leaf (not affecting lettering). Previous owner's name and address dated 1817 at upper margin of fly leaf. Missing title page and last leaf of the Table mentionning parts of I. Peter, as well as I. John and II. John. Contemporary previous owner's marginalia throughout (not affecting lettering). Burn hole at lower part of leaves 179 to 187 (partly affecting lettering). Clamshell box in overall very good, binding in fair, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Jean Calvin (1509-1564) was a French theologian, pastor and reformer in Geneva during the Protestant Reformation. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism, aspects of which include the doctrines of predestination and of the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation, in which doctrines Calvin was influenced by and elaborated upon the Augustinian and other Christian traditions. Various Congregational, Reformed, Reformed Baptists and Presbyterian churches, which look to Calvin as the chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world. (From Wikipedia).

        THE LYUES OF HOLY SAINCTES, PROPHETES, PATRIARCHES, AND OTHERS, CONTAYNED IN HOLYE SCRIPTURE

      Henrie Denham and Richarde Watkins, London 1574 - 181 x 135 mm. (7 1/8 x 5 1/4"). 5 p.l., 328 pp. (lacking first blank). FIRST EDITION. Pleasing navy blue crushed morocco by Riviere (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers gilt with frame of French fillets, fleuron cornerpieces, large and complex central lozenge of small tools, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with fleuron centerpiece, volute cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins densely gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with morocco bookplate of W. A. Foyle, Beeleigh Abbey. STC 17303. A little rubbing to joints and extremities, first and last pages a little soiled, text lightly washed and pressed in keeping with the bibliophilic fashion of the day, but a clean, fresh copy, with leaves that crackle when turned, and in a lustrous binding. Attractively bound and from a distinguished collection, this biographical dictionary of figures from scripture contains not only the saints, prophets, and patriarchs, but also those who appear only in passing, like Damaris, a Christian woman in Athens mentioned in a Pauline epistle, and Asaph, a singer appointed by David to "the House of the Lord." The latter might have particularly resonated with Merbecke (also "Merbeck" and "Marbeck," ca. 1510-ca.1585), a musician and theologian who began his career as a choirboy in Saint George's Chapel, Windsor, where he later served as the organist for most of three decades. He cemented his place in the history of the Anglican Church by composing the first noted edition of the Book of Common Prayer. A strong Calvinist, he undertook the considerable project of preparing a concordance of the Bible, a feat for which he was tried and convicted of heresy. As evidence of his outstanding musical talents, Merbecke received a royal reprieve (while his three--no doubt less musically inclined--co-defendants died at the stake). He immediately went back to work on his concordance, which, when finally published in 1550, was the first complete such work in English. Our finely bound copy comes from the library of W. A. Foyle, co-founder with his brother of the famous Foyle's Bookshop in Charing Cross Road. The three large Foyle sales at Christie's held in 2000 were a bibliophilic highlight of the new century, and the sum of $19 million for which William Foyle's personal library sold in July set a record for private European collections. This work is rare in the marketplace: the last copy at auction seems to have appeared in 1982, and RBH and ABPC list only four copies since 1900. Attractively bound and from a distinguished collection, this biographical dictionary of figures from scripture contains not only the saints, prophets, and patriarchs, but also those who appear only in passing, like Damaris, a Christian woman in Athens mentioned in a Pauline epistle, and Asaph, a singer appointed by David to "the House of the Lord."
