Cordus, Valerius; Coudenberg, Pierre (ed.)
Ludouicum Cloquemin et Stephanum Michaelem, Lyon, 1575. Early Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Full pig skin finely blind tooled but rubbed and worn; still intact and attractive, though with three raised bands on the spine. One or two small repairs to the hinges - housed in a custom chemise and leather backed slipcase. Small octavo (duo-decimo in size but bound in 8vo). Copious notes in an early hand fill the margins and endpapers as well as between many lines of what was obviously a working copy. Scattered underlining and a few marks to the text itself, but nothing rendering it illegible. A few minor dampstains in the margins, rear endpaper loose. With an Epitaph for Cordus and an appendix; 474pp plus the index. Cordus (1515-1544) was the author of one of the Renaissance's first major herbals, and this, the first real (surviving) pharmacopoeia which was prepared in manuscript in 1542 but was so popular in Nuremberg that they printed it and it became the official pharmacopoeia of the city. Cordus, remarkably given his young age and other accomplishments, is most famous for his discovery of a method for synthesizing ether. Size: Octavo (8vo). Text is clean and unmarked.

WILLER, Georg
18 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern boards (title a little spotted). Frankfurt am Main: 1575. The autumn 1575 catalogue of the Frankfurt Book Fair. The catalogues of the Frankfurt Book Fair, issued twice a year by Georg Willer starting in the autumn of 1564, created a revolution for the book trade. "Before that date printers visiting the fair must have had to write out by hand countless lists of new books to send to their customers: thereafter they could send copies of the fair catalogue to the local booksellers all over Europe, who in turn passed them on to their customers...The fair catalogue was a co-operative effort: the printers coming to the fair sent in advance title-pages of the books they were bringing, so that Willer could arrange them in subject order before printing his catalogue."-Pollard & Ehrman, p. 77. These "catalogues represent the first international bibliographies of a periodic character, attempting to list every six months all new publications issued in Europe, and they can be considered the prototype of today's Books in Print. The books are arranged by subject; for the first time, place, publisher, and date are always mentioned."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 24-(according to Breslauer and Folter, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the autumn 1568 issue at Harvard). All Willer catalogues are extremely rare. According to OCLC, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the 1574 issue (but see above). It is interesting to note that Dr. Breslauer did not have any 16th-century issues. The earliest copy in the Broxbourne Library is spring 15 … [Click Below for Full Description]

BELLE FOREST, Francois de
1575]., [Paris, 1575 - Belle Forest's fine woodcut plan 300 by 480mm (11.75 by 19 inches). Woodcut map, a few old folds strengthened. Howgego 3. Belle Forest based his plan upon Braun and Hogenberg's seminal map of 1572. The map depicts Elizabethan London in all its glory with bull and bear pits in evidence south of the River Thames, animals grazing in the nearby fields, and the river teeming with Tudor barges and sailing vessels. The only bridge across the Thames is London Bridge which joins the City of London to Southwark. The three cities of London, Westminster, and Southwark are depicted as quite separate entities at this time. In the foreground are four Londoners in traditional Tudor dress. The figures are flanked by text and, above the plan, the title is flanked by the royal and the City of London's coats-of-arms. Belle Forest use of woodcut, rather than Hogenberg's copper engraving, gives the plan a subtler look.The plan was published by Belle Forest in 'La Cosmographie Universelle de Toute le Monde' of 1575.Scale: 6 1/2 inches to one statute mile.

MAUROLICO, Francesco.
Venice: Franciscum Franciscium Senensem, 1575. First edition. First and only edition (see Rara Aritmetica) of the first clear statement of the principle of mathematical induction. "Francesco Maurolico is generally recognized to have been one of the foremost mathematicians of the sixteenth century" (Rosen); Cajori has called him 'the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century'. Only a few of his many works were printed, the present volume containing the majority of his published scientific writings in eight treatises, each published here for the first time: De sphaera liber unus (in which he criticized Copernicus); Computus Ecclesiasticus in summam collectus; Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum; Tractatus de lineis horariis; Euclidis propositiones elementorum; Musicae traditione; De lineis horariis; and Arithmeticorum. "The greatest number of Maurolico's mathematical writings are gathered in the Opuscula mathematica; indeed, the second volume of that work, Arithmeticorum libri duo, is wholly devoted to that subject and contains, among other things, some notable research on the theory of numbers. This includes, in particular, a treatment of polygonal numbers that is more complete than that of Diophantus, to which Maurolico added a number of simple and ingenious proofs. L. E. Dickson has remarked upon Maurolico's argument that every perfect number is hexagonal, and therefore traingular, while Baldassarre Boncompagni noted his proof of a peculiarity of the succession of odd numbers...

NEVILLE, Alexander
Henrici Binnemani, London, 1575. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

Abreo, Francisco de
Extremely scarce Spanish work pertaining to the Societas Iesu in the 16th century. N.d. [c. 1575]. N.p. [Toledo or Madrid]. In 4to (273 mm x 195 mm). 18 ; 6. Unbound in recent folder, perfect. A very clean and fresh copy, with contemporary handwritten marginalia and only lightly soiled. An extremely scarce work, CCPBE (Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español) registers only two copies, apparently incomplete [both quoting 16 pages instead of 18, stating ?Error de pag., de p. 15 pasa a 18?]. Abreo (c.1528 ? 1592), studied at the University of Salamanca where he received a degree as a lawyer; although it is uncertain when he became a Jesuit, he was consulted from an early age as a Jesuit Jurist from the Provinces of Castille and Toledo. His opposition to the government of the Societas Iesu gained him fame and enemies, but according to the ?Diccionario histórico de la compañia de Jesus?, his character was well reputed by the Inquisition, so he was able to continue as a Jesuit.  There are no printer details, but it´s supposed to have been printed c.1575. In the work Abreu writes in favor of the Bula Conservatoria, given by Popes Pius V (1504 ? 1572) and Gregorius XIII (1502 ? 1585), both pertaining to the Jesuit Order and it´s confirmation. Palau, 987 (only for Abreu´s part).

Very ample margins, crease towards lower edge, rust spot on upper margin, neither of these minor blemishes affect this superb engraving. Fine condition. Size: 45 x 34 cm. (17½ x 13½ inches) Alhama is a pretty, ancient spa town near Granada. This dramatic engraving, as seen from a nearby hilltop, shows the town perched above the Rio Alham in rolling countryside, while in the foreground, travellers wend their way on the hilly road from Granada. At the bottom of the hill is a bathhouse with steaming cones - 'los bainnos'. In the background, clouds swirl around the mountain tops. The engraving was published in Braun & Hogenberg's Civitates, an encyclopaedic atlas of town plans, that gives a fascinating insight into sixteenth-century Europe.

BESSARD, T(oussaint) de
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, … [Click Below for Full Description]
