Opening nine-line woodcut initial Q. This work containing, "Le imprese heroiche et morali ritrovate da M. Gabriello Symeoni Fiorentino" on p. [168]-215. Dedicated to the Duc de Montmorency (dated 15 May 1559). Text in italic. Later vellum; (only slight browning at front, otherwise clean). Large armorial bookplate of Edward Francis Searles (1841-1920), his no. 2111. Searles was a Massachusetts-native and successful interior and architectural designer with a "connoisseur’s library" of rare books. Modern armorial bookplate of Bibliotheque I.G. Schorsch on the front flyleaf. Giovio’s original Dialogo dell’imprese was written as a dialogue between him and his friend Ludovico Domenichi (1515-1564). His was the first treatise devoted entirely to imprese, those personal devices that exemplified sixteenth-century thought on self. First published in 1555 in an unillustrated duodecimo edition, Paolo Giovio’s Dialogo dell’imprese was not issued in the present format until 1559 by Rouille in Lyon. It was first presented in a joint edition with Gabriello Simeoni’s emblems in 1561, again with Rouille, and then reprinted in 1574, as here. Simeoni’s text replaced Giovio’s historical … [Click Below for Full Description]

FOUCQUE (Michel)
Paris, Jehan Bien-né, 1574. 1 vol. petit in-8°, veau marbré glacé, dos à nerfs orné de fleurs de grenade dorées entourées d'un double filet doré, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches rouges. Reliure du XVIIIe siècle, mors fendillés, coins émoussés, coiffes élimées, fente au dos. 514 pp., (7) ff. Signatures : [A-Z]8 [Aa-Kk]8. Edition originale de ce long poème d'environ 16 000 décasyllabes sur la vie du Christ, qui s'appuie le plus près possible du texte des Evangiles. L'auteur, Michel Foucqué (ou Foucques), était vicaire perpétuel de Saint-Martin de Tours. Il était né en 1514 à Sainte-Cécile-sur-le-Loir près de Flée dans le Maine. Il avait déjà composé son poème sous François Ier, le soumit à l'approbation des docteurs en 1560, mais le texte ne fut imprimé que quelques mois avant sa mort en 1574. Il avait composé d'autres poèmes dans le même genre, mais qui sont restés inédits : une vie des apôtres et une vie de Saint Martin entre autres, dont l'auteur promet la prochaine publication à la fin de cette vie de Jésus, mais il est probable que son livre n'eut que peu de débit et que l'éditeur renonça à publier les autres manuscrits après la mort de l'auteur. De toute rareté. Cioranescu, 10225; Taschereau, 1451; Hauréau, Hist. litt. du Maine V, 1; FVB; 20183; Renouard III, n°668; manque à Barbier-Mueller.

BERTRAM (Bonaventure-Corneille)
Genève, Eustache Vignon, 1574. 1 vol. in-4°, vélin souple à rabats, titre écrit à la plume au dos. Reliure de l'époque, petit manque angulaire au plat sup. Bon exemplaire. (12) ff., 440 pp. Signatures *4 4 4 [A-Z]4 [Aa-Zz]4 [AA-II]4. Mouillure angulaire sur les 50 premiers feuillets. Annotations marginales anciennes à l'encre brune. Edition originale et unique de cette grammaire comparée de l'hébreu et de l'araméen, avec des commentaires sur leurs rapports avec les autres dialectes sémitiques, le syriaque et le chaldéen. Bertram, humaniste protestant originaire de Thouars dans le Poitou, avait été l'élève de Turnèbe et de Stracelius avant de s'intéresser aux langues orientales que lui enseignèrent Ange Caninius, Jean Le Mercier et François Roaldès. Ayant évité de peu les effets de la Saint-Barthélemy, il choisit de s'exiler à Genève où il fut nommé professeur d'hébreu à la place d'Antoine-Rodolphe Chevalier à qui cette grammaire doit beaucoup. Il fut l'un des meilleurs orientalistes de son temps et fut le premier protestant à entreprendre une traduction de la Bible en français d'après l'hébreu.

SAXTON, Christopher - LEA, Philip
London: (1574-[c.1693]). 340 x 495 mm., trimmed close on three sides, signs of old folds from a smaller volume, light toning to edge of top margin, otherwise a very good example.; A later edition of Christopher Saxton's 1574 map of the county also offered earlier. This is the original plate with many alterations, including a change of title cartouche, 8 armorials along the top, a plan of Norwich with a further armorial below and the addition of roads. This state of the map is the first folio map to show the roads of Norfolk, it is only pre-dated by the playing card map by Robert Morden of 1676. The boundaries of the hundreds are re-engraved and the names added.Philip Lea flourished 1666-1700 as a cartographer, globe and instrument maker and map seller. His atlases were rarely uniform usually being made to order and his editions of Saxton's atlas are similarly varying in content although built around his stock of the original plates. These he acquired sometime around 1689, but from whom is unknown. The fate of some of the plates is unclear but two, Devon and Northumberland, never reappear suggesting that they might have been lost in the Fire. They were replaced by a plate engraved for Lea; that of Devon is signed by Francis Lamb and is offered here under Philip Lea. That of Essex appears to have been unavailable for reasons unknown as Lea issued another. However the original was eventually acquired as examples of Lea's second edition often utilise the Saxton plate. Middlesex was first replaced by John Ogilby's plate of the county c.1673 which had been acquired by Lea. Then … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAXTON, Christopher
London: (1574). 340 x 490 mm., in early outline colour with some recent embellishments. With some marginal nicks repaired, light surface soiling and minor staining, de-acidified.; Saxton's map of Norfolk holds the position of being the first of the maps to be finished according to Evans and Lawrence. Only that of Oxfordshire was completed in the same year. This reflects both counties significance to Elizabethan England. They also show that the project was still in its infancy and its formula was still undergoing development. The Norfolk map includes all of the Hundreds as do four other counties including Cornwall. It is however the only one to letter them to a key upper right. This example is in the usual second state, the first being an early pre-issue. It is the only map engraved by Cornelis de Hooghe who was a pupil of Philip Galle in Antwerp and the only known work by him during his time in England. He famously claimed to be a natural son of Emperor Charles V (Charles I of Spain) and was executed in 1583 after being implicated in a plot against the life of William I, Prince of Orange (William the Silent). Christopher Saxton produced one of the earliest national surveys of any kind and the first uniformly conceived cartographic survey of England and Wales. It was begun in about 1574 and completed by 1579: 'in the long list of British atlases the first name is also the greatest, the name of Christopher Saxton' (Chubb). Saxton (c.1542-c.1610) was born in the Dunningley, West Riding of Yorkshire. While the details of his early life are sketchy, it is known that he attended … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fendt, Tobias.
[Breslau, Crispin Scharffenberg], 1574. Folio. Engr., ill. title page, (10) pp., 129 plates (numbered 1-125 and 3*, 13*, 21*, and 22*). Half vellum, bound c. 1700. All edges gilt. First edition of the principal work of the Polish artist and engraver, containing depictions of tombstones and funerary monuments from antiquity to the 16th century. Commissioned by the Imperial councillor Sygfried Rybisch from Breslau. Very rarely encountered with all 129 plates. The present copy bears an Imperial privilege on the title page, added in contemporary ink calligraphy, which protected the work against reprinting for the duration of eight years ("Cum Gratia et Privilegio Caes[aris] Ma[jes]t[atis] at VIII annos") - a statement not to be found in any copy available for comparison (in printed or written form). - Binding rubbed; interior occasionally slightly bronstained and waterstained. From the collection of the Nuremberg jurist Johann Konrad Feuerl(e)in (1725-88). A catalog of his vast library was published during his lifetime in two volumes (Schwabach, 1768-79; cf. Bogeng III, note 240); after his death, two sales catalogs appeared (1793 and 1803). Not in ABPC; only two complete copies at German postwar auctions (1959 und 1999 [Donaueschingen]), the latter certainly without the present privilege. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

He was educated at the Latin school in Rochlitz; and then he studied at the University of Leipzig (1516-1519). During this time, he Latinized his name to Apianus (apis in Latin means "bee"; "Biene" is the German word for bee). In 1519, Apianus moved to Vienna and continued his studies at the University of Vienna, which was considered one of the leading universities in geography and mathema … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham Ortelius
Diest, 1574. Am 20. Mai 1570 war laut Kolophon der Druck des Welttheaters Theatrum Orbis Terrarum mit zunächst 69 Karten auf 53 Kartenblättern fertig gestellt (Edito princeps). Er gilt als der erste moderne Weltatlas der Neuzeit. Für seine Meisterleistung wurde Abraham Ortelius daraufhin am 20.Mai 1573 von König Philipp II zum Geographus Regius ernannt. Ein Jahr vor erscheinen des hier vorliegenden erweiterten Atlas mit nun 70 Karten. Abraham Ortels stammt aus einer schwäbischen Familie, der Großvater war Wilhelm Ortels aus Augsburg. Ihn zog es nach Antwerpen, wo er sich ab 1460 als Apotheker niederließ und 1512/13 verstarb.Augsburg ist übrigens die einzig erwähnte Stadt auf deutschem Gebiet (Heiligen Römischen Reiches) auf der Weltkarte Typus Orbit Terrarum. Abraham Ortels, später trug er die latinisierte Form Ortelius wurde nach eigenen Angaben am 16. März 1527 (Zeit der Umstellung Julianischer Gregorianischer Kalender, deshalb auch oft 4. April) in Antwerpen geboren und starb ebenda am 28. Juni 1598. Er studierte klassische Sprachen und Mathematik und war zunächst als Buch-, und Kartenhändler tätig. Deshalb reiste er viel und lernte auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse u.a. auch Gerhard Mercator (Kremer) kennen, woraus eine gute Zusammenarbeit und Freundschaft wurde. Ausserdem war er gut mit Pieter Brueghel d. Ä. befreundet mit dem er auch eine längere Italienreise unternahm. Frans Hogenberg (Civitates Orbis Terrarum) stach seine Karten in Köln. Ortelius vermutete als erster dass die Kontinente aufgrund der Umrisse früher einmal zusammenhängend waren und durch Erdbeben und F … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOUBERT, Laurent.
A Lyon: Par Jean de Tournes, Imprimeur du Roy, 1574. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION (the second chronologically) of this rare monograph on one of the two great problems of Renaissance surgery, the treatment of wounds by firearms (the other was epidemic syphilis). As Joubert says on the title-page, this edition is greatly expanded with several new sections from the first of 1570, which had 132 pages. The third of the new sections is on burns. Joubert was a distinguished physician of Montpellier, professor of medicine in the university and dean of the faculty. He served in the royal army in the campaign of 1569. He was to within a few years an exact contemporary of Paré, but although Paré's book on the same subject had been published nearly thirty years earlier, Joubert makes no mention of him. The wonderful presentation inscription from the author in this copy is so unusual in a book of this kind. It is to Joubert's close friend Claude Formy ("Claude the converted"), a fellow convert to Protestantism, physician, and leader of the Reformation in Montpellier. The two collaborated on a biography of Guillaume Rondelet, who was Joubert's teacher and Formy's cousin. Very rare; for instance Wellcome has the first but not this second edition, Durling (2635) has this edition (possibly incomplete at the beginning) but not the first (although it is now in the online catalogue). Three copies are located in the USA, and 1 in the UK. It is not in the Bibliothèque Nationale.8vo, pp. (xvi), 256, (40). Half-page woodcut portrait of the author on p. (x), four divisional title-pages, de Tournes' wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAXTON, Christopher
London: (1574). 340 x 490 mm., in early outline colour. With some light brown offsetting lower right corner, otherwise a good example with the early bunch of grapes watermark.; Saxton's map of Norfolk holds the position of being the first of the maps to be finished according to Evans and Lawrence. Only that of Oxfordshire was completed in the same year. This reflects both counties significance to Elizabethan England. They also show that the project was still in its infancy and its formula was still undergoing development. The Norfolk map includes all of the Hundreds as do four other counties including Cornwall. It is however the only one to letter them to a key upper right. This example is in the usual second state, the first being an early pre-issue. It is the only map engraved by Cornelis de Hooghe who was a pupil of Philip Galle in Antwerp and the only known work by him during his time in England. He famously claimed to be a natural son of Emperor Charles V (Charles I of Spain) and was executed in 1583 after being implicated in a plot against the life of William I, Prince of Orange (William the Silent). Christopher Saxton produced one of the earliest national surveys of any kind and the first uniformly conceived cartographic survey of England and Wales. It was begun in about 1574 and completed by 1579: 'in the long list of British atlases the first name is also the greatest, the name of Christopher Saxton' (Chubb). Saxton (c.1542-c.1610) was born in the Dunningley, West Riding of Yorkshire. While the details of his early life are sketchy, it is known that he attended Cam … [Click Below for Full Description]
