      THE FIRST "ANTI-MACHIAVEL" 8vo. (16), 639 (i.e. 637), (19) pp. With a woodcut device on the title and on the last leaf. 18th century calf, richly gilt spine with gilt lettering on red morocco label, red edges, marbled end-leaves, old entry of ownership on the title page, a few old marginal annotations, some very light damp-stains, a very fine copy.FIRST EDITION of the most significant French contribution to political theory before Bodin's République, dedicated to the Duke of Alençon, who joined the Huguenots in September 1575. If Gen-tillet is today a more or less forgotten man, if his main work lies in oblivion, superseded by the eighteenth century Anti-Machiavel of that arch Machiavellian, Frederick of Prussia, it is nonetheless true that Gentillet in his own time and into the next century was one of the most influential personalities in the anti-Machiavellian polemic. This is testified by the fact that his Discours was reprinted repeatedly until the middle of the seventeenth century (cf. S. Anglo, Machiavelli: The First Century Studies in Enthusiasm, Hostility, and Irrelevance, Oxford, 2005, pp. 271-324)."A convincing re-assessment of the historical relevance of the book cannot be achieved without replacing it in the context of the political and religious situation in France at the time when it was written, and of the attitude, concerns, and aspirations of the church of Geneva, that authorized its printing and in all probability greatly contributed to its wide circulation... To realize that the most specific and profound reason for his anti-Machiavellism is in direct relation to the distance that separates him from the monarchomachs, and precisely in his attempt to find a different justification – one not involving the rejection of the lex regia, the law establishing the absolute power of kings - for the rebellion against the court, overrun by foreigners and infected by Machiavellism" (Innocent Gentillet, Discours contre Machiavel. A New Edition, A. D'Andrea e P.D, Stewart, eds, Firenze, 1974, pp. XIII).Machiavelli had offered the ruler a set of "maxims' by which to rule. He had arrived at these "maxims' after years of political observation and had taken pains to present historical evidence to support his theories. His method had been to illustrate po-litical reality, to derive a standard of political conduct based on what was, rather than on what should be. Gentillet could not, therefore, refute facts and historical evidence with pious platitudes. He must try to counter the arguments of Machiavelli with more convincing facts. For this reason, he opened his preface with a general discussion on the means by which man comes to knowledge of things. Then looking at Machiavelli's theories he tries to prove that he was either ignorant of the things which he was discussing or that he had perversely twisted historical evidence to suit his wicked purpose. Gentillet never quite made up his mind which line to take. He presents Machiavelli both as lacking in judgment and as a clever falsifier. It was enough to say that his political experience had been limited to the affairs of a tiny Italian republic. How could one compare Florence with the great kingdom of France? Since Machiavelli had presented his theories in the form of "maxims', Gentillet proposed to draw from the Discorsi and especially from Il Principe a group of "maxims' which he would then set to refute. He found fifty such "maxims'. Taking care to give his sources, Gentillet began his rebuttal, questioning the historical interpretations, challenging the assumptions of Machiavelli, and offering what he considered to be a crushing array of counter-evidence drawn from biblical sources, Roman and French history, the technique being that of a debate (cf. V. Kahn, Reading Machiavelli: Innocent Gentillet's Discours on Method, in: "Political Theory", 22/4, 1994, pp. 539-560; and E.M. Beame, The Use and Abuse of Machiavelli: The Sixteenth Century French Adaption, in: "Journal of the History of Ideas, 43/1, 1982, pp. 41-43).Gentillet may have been an idealist in comparison to his enemy Machiavelli, but he always demonstrated that his arguments on the working of government were based on long observation of the working of the law and the constitution. For him law was a professional reality. His conviction is admirable, and his intuition of the things to come, although sometimes imperfectly understood, intriguing.The Discours is therefore an important document revealing the hesitations and contradictions not only of its author but also of French society prior to the "grand siècle' (cf. C.E. Rathé, Innocent Gentillet and the first "Anti-Machiavel', in: "Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance, XXVII, Genève, 1965, pp. 188-225).The emblem which decorates the title page is significant. It is, in fact, a symbolic presentation of the main thesis of the work. It shoes a crown supported by three columns and the motto: "Consilia, pietas, politia fermant coronam'. The work itself is divided into three sections of unequal length entitles Conseil, Religion and Police. The argument, presented by Gentillet is that sovereignty vested in the Crown, rests upon three supports: council, religion and what the calls "police' (i.e. the working policy of the government).Innocent Gentillet was born at Vienne in the Dauphiné into a family that was early won over to the Reform. He seems to have been for some time after the year 1547 a page at the court of Henry II. He then spent some time in the military before taking up studies, first in theology and later in law. He became a respected and influential personality in the affairs of the Dauphiné. He was found among those refusing to take an oath required by the Edict of Pacification in March 1568. He escaped the Massacre of St. Bartholomew (1572) by emigration to Geneva. After the "Paix de Monsieur' he became member of the Parlement of Grenoble and later president of the court established by the Duke of Die. He was made president of the Parlement of Gre-no-ble, but took again refuge in Geneva after the Edict of Reunion in 1585. He wrote a work with suggestions for practical reform in administration, Briève remonstrance à la noblesse de France (1576), a defence of the Huguenots, Apologie ou defence pour le chrestiens de France (1578) and a denunciation of the Council of Trent, Le Bureau du Concile de Trente (1586) (cf. H.J. Schäfer, Innocent Gentillet, sein Leben und besonders sein "Anti-Machiavel', ein Beitrag zur Publizistik der Bartholomäusnacht, Diss., Bonn, 1929, passim).Two variants of the title page of the first edition are extant: ours is GLN 2587. The work was first attributed to the press of François Estienne, what soon was realized to be impossible, because he was then absent from Geneva. The attribution to Jacob Stoer (H.-J. Bremme, Buchdrucker und Buchhändler zur Zeit der Glaubenskämpfe: Studien zur Genfer Druckgeschichte 1565-1580, Genève, 1969, p. 66), had been confirmed by examination of the latter's types.Adams, G-439; Universal STC, no. 1419; Innocent Gentillet, Discours contre Machiavel.

        Moscauw [Moscow].

      Antwerp after 1575 - Double-page engraved map with fine hand-colour. Dimensions: 350 by 490mm. (13.75 by 19.25 inches). A beautiful example of this striking decorated map, celebrating Moscow under Ivan the Terrible. Finely coloured with good margins. This beautifully coloured map is taken from the great 16th century work Civitates orbis terrarum. Based on Sigismund von Herberstein's own 1547 map, it shows the city of Moscow from a slightly elevated viewpoint across the frozen Moskva River. The walled centre of the city is depicted with its many churches and rows of houses, and filled with people and horse-drawn sleighs, others of which are shown, along with skiers, on the river to the right. In the top left corner is the nicely adorned coat of arms of the city. In the foreground are depicted four armed Russian soldiers on horseback. The German caption above them indicates they are wearing the typical "Moscovite war armament". These graphically reflect the growing military power of Moscow under Grand Duke Ivan IV (Ivan the Terrible), who was the first to assume the title of Tsar of Russia and who established the city as the capital of the Grand Duchy of Russia in 1547, not long before this image was made. Next to the soldiers appear two types of cattle, typical for the region. The first one is the European bison and the right one the auroch, an extinct type of large wild cattle that inhabited Europe, Asia and North Africa. As the aurochs became rarer - becoming extinct in 1627 -, hunting it became a privilege of the nobility. Both images together with the caption in German, telling the difference between the two species ("This is a bison, called Suber by the Poles, Bisont or Damthier by the Germans, and aurochs by the ignorant" and "This is an urus, called Tur by the Poles, Aurochs by the Germans and bison by the ignorant"), are also based upon Herberstein's famous work on Russia from 1556. The text on the back is in French. "Scarcer are the copies with German or French text. (.) It seems that the Civitates was mainly intended for the educated reader: there are far more editions in Latin than in German and French" (Koeman). First published in Cologne in a series of six volumes between 1572 and 1617, the Civitates attempted to present, for the first time, a systematic account of all the major settlements and cities of the then-known World. The subsequent atlas proved hugely popular with the new urban merchantile elite, who were hungry for information on the far flung cities of the world.

      Illustration of the inauguration of the Leiden University on 8th February 1575. A procession of personages displayed in four rows with text in letterpress added on the right in Latin and on the lower border in Dutch with names of the represented men and symbolic items. All the subjects treated at this University are here represented along with historical personages related to them. For example the Bible (nr.3) is followed by the four Evangelists, Law (nr.8) by some of the most important Roman jurists, like Papinianus and Ulpianus, Medicine (nr.13) is followed by Hippocrates, Galenus, Dioscorides and Theophrastus, and so on. The procession continues with members of the city council, eminent professors and patrons of the institution. The first generation of scholars at the University of Leiden came almost exclusively from abroad, and its curators went to great effort to hire the best known scholars of the day. In the first quarter-century of its existence, almost sixty percent of the professors came from outside the Dutch Republic, half of them from the Southern Netherlands. As it appears from the explanatory texts names of professors were Latinized. In fact we read Casparus Coolhasius (nr.25) who was teaching theology, Theodorus Nieuwburgius (nr.28) professor of law, Petrus Forestus (nr.34) professor of medicine, assisted by Laurentius Orschotius (nr.37). Gerardus Bontius (nr.40) was a medical doctor, however he was assigned to teach mathematics. Cornelius Grotius (nr.43) uncle of the most famous Hugo Grotius (at that time unborn) was asked to teach philosophy. The procession is closed by soldiers with flags and weapons, some of them firing, and musical instruments. On the canal proceeding from left towards the right a triumphal boat carrying Neptune, Apollo and the Muses, also making music, ideally accompanying this great inauguration. Lettered on the top center:'INWYDING DER UNIVERISTEIT TOT LEYDEN Anno 1575', in letterpress on the right:'EXPLICATIO / NUMERORUM. /1. Nucol. Hug. Gaal. Capit..... F. Neptunus', on the bottom:'UYTLEGGING. / 1. ClaasHuygensz Gaal, Capitein ... F. Neptunus'. In letterpress on the lower right corner in decorative typographical frame:'Gedrukt / te / LEYDEN / by / PIETER VANDER Aa.' This print was used as illustration in the pubblication by J.J. Orlers 'Beschryvinge der stad Leyden' (1781), first volume, p. 608. Etching and letterpress on paper; platemark: 199 x 447 mm; total: 246 x 490; upper margin pasted on cardboard, folded on the right and other light traces of folding towards the bottom; tiny dirt spot on the text on the right.

        Cairus quae olim babylon Aegypt maxima Urbs

      Colonia 1575 - Veduta a volo d'uccello della città del Cairo e del territorio cirostante con le nte piramidi. Nel cartiglio in basso a destra, una legenda numerica 1-17 esplicativa delle scene rappresentate. Interessante è la citazione in alto a destra, dai Commetari (1518) del riformatore Joachim von Watt (lat. Vadianus) al De situ orbis di Pomponio Mela, che riflette la cultura morallizatrice dell'epoca "Queste piramidi in Egitto non erano altro che l'ostentazione della ricchezza dei re; In questo modo i re, o meglio le bestie coronate, speravano di scrivere i loro nomi sulla terra, e che la loro fama durasse più a lungo; tuttavia, nulla al mondo è più effimero della fama. Infatti non perdura né il nome dell'architetto né il nome del re folle che fece erigere una piramide" L’opera è inserita nel "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", il primo atlante devoto esclusivamente alle piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo. Stampato in sei volumi tra il 1572 ed il 1617 ebbe grande fortuna e diffusione, tanto che ne furono stampate diverse edizioni tradotte in latino, tedesco e francese; gli intagli dei rami sono attribuiti a Franz Hogenberg e Simon van de Noevel. Incisione in rame, finemente acquarellata, testo tedesco al verso, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A bird's-eye view of Cairo and the surrounding countryside, with depictions of the pyramids and the Sphinx. A legend describing the view is enclosed in a strapwork cartouche at bottom right. The text above the view of the pyramids reflects the disdain with which the non-Christian nations were viewed at the time. "These pyramids were nothing but an idle display of royal wealth. In this way the kings, or rather the crowned beasts, namely hoped to make their names immortal on earth and to keep their memory alive for a long time. Nothing in the world is of less fame, however, since neither the architect nor the insane king who built a pyramid is recorded." From Civitates Orbis Terrarum, by published between 1572 and 1617. Within the six volumes, 531 towns and cities were depicted on 363 plates, providing the reader with the pleasures of travel without the attendant discomforts. Braun wrote in the preface to the third book, "What could be more pleasant than, in one's own home far from all danger, to gaze in these books at the universal form of the earth . . . adorned with the splendor of cities and fortresses and, by looking at pictures and reading the texts accompanying them, to acquire knowledge which could scarcely be had but by long and difficult journeys?" Braun and Hogenberg incorporated an astonishing wealth of information into each scene beyond the city layout and important buildings. The plates provide an impression of the economy and prominent occupations, and illustrate local costumes, manners and customs. Copper engraving, later hand colour, German text on the verso, in very good condition. Dimensioni 485 335mm

        Novum Domini nostri Jesu Christi Testamentum Syriace. Antwerp, Christoffel Plantin, 1575. Long 24mo (11 x 6.5 cm). With Plantin's woodcut golden compasses device. Set in Hebrew type (4 sizes of meruba) with incidental roman. Recased in old vellum, new endpapers.

      Adams B1802; Darlow & Moule, 8952; Voet 668. Plantin's lovely little miniature edition of the New Testament in the ancient Syriac language, probably published in this pocket-sized format for the convenience of students and other scholars. Plantin's son-in-law Franciscus Raphelengius, who had begun to establish his reputation as an orientalist when he helped prepare the Polyglot, added an appendix to this edition, giving unpublished variant readings from an important Cologne manuscript. The New Testament relates stories that would have first been told (and in some cases probably also written down) in Aramaic, the vernacular language of Palestine in Jesus's time. Syriac, another dialect of Aramaic, served as the vernacular language of much of the Middle East. The Syriac text therefore provides valuable clues to the Aramaic sources of the New Testament.In very good condition. A lovely little Syriac New Testament, well printed by Plantin.

By: Braun & Hogenberg Holy Land - Jerusalem Date: 1575 Publication: Civitates Orbis Terrarum Hand colored p. 53 Size:13.3 x 19 inches 33.8 x 48.3 cm. CONDITION - SEE CAREFULLY PHOTOS RIGHT EDGE CUT OFF FOXING STAINS, MAINLY TO EDGES AND LOWE RIGHT CORNER TRACKS OF STRIPS, TEAR TO FIELD TO UPPER EDGE DAMAGE TO LOWER RIGHT CORNER LIGHT CREASING   As is often the case with 16th and 17th century maps, this map has a complicated publication history. According to Ancient Maps of Jerusalem, a web site produced by the Jewish National and University Library and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the map is an exact copy of Braun and Hogenberg's plan of Jerusalem (from Civitates... Theatrum des cites du monde, Brussels, 1575. Vol. I, No. 53.). Braun and Hogenberg in turn had copied the view on the right from one published a few years earlier by Gerard de Jode (1509-1591) in Novae Urbis Hierosolymitanae topographica in Antwerp (1571?). The de Jode map bears an inscription stating that it is drawn after a map by Peter Laicstain and published in Germany in 1570 (no known copies of which exist today). Examples of Belleforest's, Braun and Hogenberg's, and de Jode's versions of this map may be found on the Ancient Maps of Jerusalem web site (see References below). The web site also notes that pre-19th century renderings of Jerusalem tended to be more artistic productions than geographically accurate ones, combining scenes and locations from different historical periods and incorporating biblical concepts associated with the sites depicted. Belleforest's map is typical of its era in these respects. François de Belleforest typified the "Renaissance man" - a prolific French author on a variety of subjects, as well as a poet and translator; in all he produced over 50 volumes including his translations.  Born into a poor family, he eventually made his way to Paris where he met other young writers. He wrote on cosmography, morals, literature and history, authored the first French pastoral novel, La Pyrénée (1571), and from 1568 served as historiographer to the king. He translated works by German, Italian, Latin and Greek authors into French, including a renowned translation and adaptation of tragic tales by the Italian writer Matteo Bandello, published in seven volumes from 1564-82. One of those stories served as William Shakespeare's source for Hamlet. Georg Braun (1541-1622) and Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590) were among a flourishing group of cartographers based in Cologne, Germany, in the late 16th century, known for their major work Civitates Orbis Terrarum (1572-1617). The set usually was composed of six volumes, containing about 530 maps, mainly of cities in Europe, as well as some in Britain and on other continents. The plates comprise the first general collection devoted solely to topographical views. Many were the earliest engraved views of these towns. The inclusion of rural scenes, transportation routes and buildings remain an important record of the period. According to map scholar R.V. Tooley, the Braun & Hogenberg series "forms a wonderful picture book of Europe in the 16th century." Georg Braun was the editor of Civitates Orbis Terrarum, and Frans Hogenberg the chief engraver. They based their views mostly on existing maps. A large part of their work derived from Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, published in 1570 by the Antwerp cartographer Abraham Ortelius. This work was considered the first modern published atlas. Indeed, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum was in many respects the model for the Civitates, with similarities in titles, as well as the formats, layouts and order of the plates. The accompanying texts were in many cases also based on Ortelius' work, as Braun indicated in the preface to the first part of the 1572 edition. Braun and Hogenberg also utilized drawings by other artists, notably the Antwerp artist Joris Hoefnagel (1542-1600), who had traveled through most of Western Europe.

      Roma 1575 - Veduta tratta dal "I Vestigi dell’Antichità di Roma Raccolti et Ritratti in Perspettiva con ogni diligentia da Stefano Dv Perac Parisino". Etienne Duperac, nativo di Bordeaux o Parigi, si trasferisce presto a Venezia, dove apprende l’arte dell’incisione realizzando vari soggetti da Tiziano, principalmente per l’editore Giovanni Francesco Camocio. Arriva a Roma nel 1559 dove si dedica allo studio dell’architettura e delle antichità, con particolare attenzione alle opere di Michelangelo. A Roma conosce Onofrio Panvinio, archeologo ed antiquario, che lo influenza e lo introduce allo studio delle antichità romane. Come tutti gli artisti provenienti dal Nord Europa, rimane affascinato dalla maestosità delle rovine romane, decidendo di studiarle e raffigurarle. Le precedenti rappresentazioni dei monumenti di Roma, ad esempio quelle eseguite da Hieronimus Cock intorno al 1550, erano pittoriche ed arricchite da elementi di fantasia. La notevole importanza delle vedute di Roma del Duperac sta nel fatto che furono rappresentate con assoluta precisione archeologica e topografica, tanto da essere oggi studiate con grande attenzione dagli studiosi di archeologia, poiché spesso rappresentano monumenti e siti oggi andati perduti. View taken from "I Vestigi dell’Antichità di Roma Raccolti et Ritratti in Perspettiva con ogni diligentia da Stefano Dv Perac Parisino". Etienne Duperac, a native of Bordeaux or Paris, he soon moved to Venice, where he learned the art of making various subjects by Titian, mainly for the publisher Giovanni Francesco Camocio. He arrived in Rome in 1559 where he devoted himself to the study of architecture and antiquities, with special attention to the works of Michelangelo. In Rome knows Onofrio Panvinio, archaeologist and antiquarian who influences him and introduced him to the study of Roman antiquities. Like all artists from Northern Europe, was fascinated by the majesty of the Roman ruins and decided to study them. The above representations of the monuments of Rome, such as those performed by Hieronymus Cock in 1550, were painted and embellished with elements of fantasy. The great importance of the views of Rome Duperac lies in the fact that they were represented with absolute precision archaeological and topographical, as to be now studied with great attention by scholars of archeology, monuments and sites as they often are now lost.

        Breve resumen de la vida y martyrio del inclyto Mexicano, y proto-martyr del Japon, el Beato Felipe de Jesus. Añadidas algunas obvias reflecciones en honor del mismo Heroë esclarecido, y de esta dichosisima civdad felize en ser su pátria. Por un eclesiàstico de este arzobispado, afecto del santo, quien lo dedica á la exemplarísima, religiosísima provincia del santo evangelio de esta civdad de México.Mexico City, "Oficina Madrileña" [literally "Madrid office", a name used by the Jáuregui heirs], 1802. 4to (19.5 x 14 cm). With engraved title-page dated 1801, an engraved portrait of Felipe de Jésus (both engravings by Montes de Oca) and extra-illustrated with 15 (of 30) engraved plates also by Montes de Oca, from the closely related 1801 print series originally issued with the same engraved title-page. With the engraved title and all 16 plates coloured by a contemporary hand and many words, letters and punctuation marks on the two title-pages coloured red. Contemporary Mexican tanned sheepskin mottled in an irregular tree pattern, gold-tooled spine.

      Medina, Imprenta en Mexico 9461; Palau 35446 & 184665 & 363045; Sabin 76029; WorldCat (10? copies of Resumen, including some incomplete, and 3 copies of Vida). Rare account of the life and Japanese martyrdom of the patron saint of Mexico (and first Mexican saint of any kind), Felipe de Jésus (1575 or ca. 1572-1597), with 15 additional plates from the extremely rare and closely related print series of De Jésus's life, issued one year earlier. The engraved title-page, portrait, and the 15 additional plates from the 1801 print series were all produced by José María Montes de Oca (1668-1748), one of the most important book illustrators and engravers of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and all are here coloured by a contemporary hand. De Jésus was a Franciscan missionary who grew up in Mexico and worked at Manilla in the Philippines from 1590 to 1596. On his way back to Mexico a storm forced his ship to land on the Japanese coast, where it was confiscated and he and the other passengers and crew imprisoned. The fact that there were soldiers and cannons on board lead the Japanese authorities to interpret the landing as an attack, so De Jésus and the others were arrested, imprisoned at Kyoto, their ears were cut off, and at Nagasaki on 5 February 1597 they were crucified and executed (pierced by two spears). The print series that supplied the extra illustrations, with the engraved title Vida de San Felipe de Jesus protomartir de Japon y patron de su patria Mexico, is Montes de Oca's finest work, one of the earliest print series published in Mexico, and the 15 plates added to the present book include De Jésus's arrival in the Philippines, his ship in the storm, his imprisonment in Kyoto and his execution at Nagasaki. The. The delicate engravings add visual power to Munibe's account of De Jésus's life. If Munibe gives the correct date of birth, De Jésus was only 21 when martyred in Japan.With a faint pencilled inscription on the back of the engraved title-page. With a worm hole through the front board and nearly half the leaves, occasional small marginal worm holes, and an occasional faint smudge or spot, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The colouring sometimes bleeds through the paper, but since the plates are blank on the back this presents no problems. The binding shows several chips and scuffs, but the lowest 3 gold-tooled flowers on spine are well preserved and the whole remains structurally sound. Very rare extra-illustrated copy of an early Mexican work on Japan, in a contemporary Mexican binding.

        La Sacra Famiglia riceve un cesto di frutta da una giovane donna

      1575 - Bulino, firmato in lastra in alto a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Francesco Salviati. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione, sebbene priva di indicazioni sull’inventore del soggetto, deriva da Francesco Salviati e può essere ricondotta agli inizi del periodo romano di Diana Scultori, intorno al 1575-1576. La datazione e l’attribuzione al Salviati sono possibili grazie ad un’altra incisione di Diana, dello stesso soggetto - in controparte rispetto a questa e con alcune varianti - datata in lastra 1583 e con un’iscrizione che indica espressamente Francesco Salviati quale inventor del disegno. In passato, Bartsch, Brulliot e Nagler, non conoscendo l’incisione del 1583, ne avevano ipotizzato una derivazione da Primaticcio. La scena mostra la Sacra Famiglia che riceve in dono un cesto di frutta da una giovane donna, alle cui spalle si mostra, quasi timidamente, un bambino. A fare da sfondo, delle architetture. Sul piedistallo a sinistra, accanto alle figure, si legge la firma DIANA. Engraving, signed at upper left. After Francesco Salviati. A magnific impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, very good conditions. The work comes from Francesco Salviati and can be traced back to the early Roman period of Diana Scultori, circa 1575-1576. The dating and attribution to the Salviati are possible thanks to another engraving of Diana, of the same subject - in counterpart with respect to this and with some variations - dated 1583 in the plate with an inscription that indicates expressly Francesco Salviati as inventor of the drawing. In the past, Bartsch, Nagler and Brulliot, not knowing the engraving of 1583, it had assumed a derivation after Primaticcio. The scene shows the Holy Family who receives the gift of a fruit basket from a young woman, behind which shows, almost shyly, a child. In the background, the architecture. On the pedestal to the left, next to the figures, it reads the signature DIANA. Bartsch, XV, 14; Nagler, V, p. 420; Bellini, p. 187, 16. Dimensioni 166 236mm

A differenza del Muenster, questa opera è pubblicata in una sola edizione, e risulta pertanto molto rara. Le carte incluse sono differenti, e derivano da Ortelius, Braun & Hogenberg oltre che dal Muenster. Alcuni legni sono invece ripresi utilizzando le matrici pubblicate per la prima volta nel 1552 nella Cosmografia di Lione da Guèroult & Balthazar Arnoullet (1517-1556), nel Premier livre des figure set pourtraitz des villes plus illustre set renommées d’Europe, contenente 9 immagini urbane, perlopiù copiate dalla Cosmographia di Sebastian Muenster.

        Puteoli / Baiae

      Braun & Hogenberg, Cologne 1575 - View. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 11.5" x 19.25" These two bird's-eye views, Pozzuoli (Puteoli) above and Baia (Baiae) below, are together on one sheet. They show both cities as located on the Gulf of Naples. The numerous ships around Pozzuoli reference its history as an important Roman port, while in the view of Baia, the remains of an ancient Roman thermal bath alludes to the city's prized springs. Small figures gesture animatedly while tending to the tasks of daily life on the Italian coast. The print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. Latin text on verso. It is in very good condition with some wear, particularly to the edges of the print. Ink stain near the upper right corner as printed. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. These views demonstrate the high quality of their work.

        Alexandri Nevylii angli, de furoribus Norfolciensium . .

      London: Henrici Binnemani, 1575. FIRST EDITION. Each book with separate title, both within woodcut border, and with full-page heraldic device to verso, second title with printer's device. Lacking the 2 folding plates. Contemporary English calf, re-backed with red morocco spine label; dampstains, some quite heavy, and small marginal tears and worming; upper margins of text cut short, but all headlines intact. Marginalia and text corrections in a contemporary hand. From the library of the eminent Shakespearian scholar Charles Tyler Prouty, with his bookplate. First edition. Neville (1544-1614) was secretary to Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury. He composed the present account of Kett's rebellion in Norwich under Edward VI (1549). His work, though no apology, nonetheless included words which annoyed the Monarchy, and led to replacement of the offending pages. Here, the cancelled text remains. The second part is a description of the city of Norwich and its antiquities to which a list of its mayors and sheriffs is added. An important work on one of the principal popular protests against the social change in England resulting from the Reformation.

        Dialogue, de la longitude: est-oueste, De T. Bessard d'Auge en Normandie. Qui est, la premiere partie du miroer du monde: contenant, tous les moyens, que l'on pourroit avoir tenues, en la naviguation, iusqu'à maintenat: que, les deux filles de cosmographie, asçavoir, geo-graphie, & hydro-graphie, en mettent un nouveau, & plus-seur, en avant: touchant le fait de cette longitude, tant par mer, que par terre

      Rouan: Martin le mesgissier, 1575. FIRST EDITION. THE FIRST FRENCH BOOK ON NAVIGATION. Woodcut printer's device on title, full-page woodcut portrait of author facing impressive full-page woodcut coat-of-arms. With 20 text woodcuts, including illustrations of instruments, and 3 tables. Nineteenth-century vellum; small repairs to title-page and to lower corner of coat-of-arms. FIRST EDITION of this extremely rare treatise, the first work printed in France on navigation and one of the earliest attempts to determine longitude at sea. As a mathematician and instrument-maker, Bessard believed this could be accomplished by fixing one's position vis-a-vis the stars; his instruments, which are illustrated here, support this conclusion. Notwithstanding, he was well aware of the needs of seamen, and his methods for determining longitude at sea were successfully followed by navigators and seamen. An early description of South America is also included, undoubtedly drawn from Bessard's first hand experience.Bessard (also Bossard), born in Putot-en-Auge, became an accomplished mathematician and designer of navigational instruments, publishing in 1572 L'aigle-compas de T. de Bessard, d'auge en Normandie. However, most of his life was passionately spent in travel, both at sea and by land, and Bessard is remembered as one of the most renowned voyagers in sixteenth-century France. We could locate only three other copies of this work: British Library (STC-French, 51), the Bibliotheque Nationale (12,647) and the Crone Collection of the Scheepvaart, the Dutch Maritime Museum (Crone Library, 77), which copy appears incomplete.
