      Strasbourg, Christian Müller, 1576 - Folio (305 x 196 mm), ff [14, including blank] 188 [1] [5, without terminal blank], title in red and black, printer's device on verso of last leaf, with 58 woodcuts in contemporary hand-colouring; old repair to top of title page, some marginal spotting and browning, some contemporary marginalia, a very good copy in contemporary limp vellum, front cover with monogram G.W. (minor repair to foot of spine).First edition of this rare and unusual herbal, with fine contemporary colouring executed in gouache and watercolours. Carrichter arranges plants according to the zodiacal classification. Hunt categorises this work as 'an example of that astrological medical thinking which practical scientists had battled against for hundreds of years'. 'Much stress is laid on the hour at which herbs ought to be gathered, particular attention being paid ascribed to the state of the moon at the time' (Arber p 258). It resembles in its approach Thurneisser zum Thurn's herbal, which it preceded by two years. Bartholomäus Carrichter was a physician to the Holy Roman Emperors Maximilian II and Ferdinand I. The present work was published under his pseudonym Philomusus.Durling 867; Hunt 123; Nissen BBI 332

      Michael Manger, Augsburg 1576 - Kl.-8vo. (ca. 16,5 x 11 cm). Blindgeprägtes Schweinsleder über Holzdeckeln mit geprägter Jahresangabe "1579" und zwei punzierten Messingschließen, 464 n.n. Bll. Sprache: Latein, Titel in Schwarz und Rot gedruckt. VD 16: R 3691. Vgl. Adams R 907 (Ausgabe 1579). STC 760 (Erste Ausgabe 1563). Zum Autor: ADB 29, 634 f. - Martin Ruland (der Ältere, 1532-1602) war eigentlich Arzt und Alchemist, ein Anhänger der Paracelsus-Lehre. Darüberhinaus war er aber auch ein "ausgezeichneter Hellenist" (ADB), der neben den Synonyma auch noch eine "Grammatica minor graeca" und andere Werke veröffentlichte. Diese Ausgabe der Synonyma wurde von Manger wohl für den Verleger Georg Willer gedruckt, der sich ab 1565 verschiedene Druckwerke mit kaiserlichen Privilegien schützen ließ, darunter ausdrücklich die Synonyma (Gier/Janota, Augsburger Buchdruck. S.38 f.), offensichtlich ein Bestseller der damaligen Zeit, der nicht unberechtigt nachgedruckt werden sollte. - Schöner zeitgenössischer Einband mit der Darstellung einer Kreuzigungsszene im vorderen Mittelstück und dem Wappen des Magdeburger und Halberstädter Erzbischofs Sigismund von Brandenburg (1538-1566) in der Mittelplatte des Rückdeckels. Möglicherweise wurde der Band noch posthum für die bischöfliche Bibliothek angeschafft und entsprechend gebunden. - Einband nachgedunkelt und etwas fleckig, Rücken an der Oberfläche rissig, Ecken angeplatzt, die Schließen intakt.

         Marcelli Palingenii Stellati poeta doctissimi Zodiacus vita: hoc est, de hominis vita, studio, ac moribus optime instituendii Libri XII.

      1576 - Lugduni, apud Ioannem Tronesium, 1576, 16mo (cm. 7 x 11,5) legatura in piena pelle coeva, dorso a tre snodi, con fregi in oro al dorso e ai piatti, dorso e punte restaurate, pp. 366-(78). Manzolli attaccò i dissoluti costumi del suo tempo in un ampio discorso filosofico sulla natura e sul comportamento umano. La sua analisi si estendeva al clero e al papato che egli esecrava per la loro ipocrisia. Opinioni così dure non potevano passare sotto silenzio e lo Zodiacus vitae fu ben presto messo all'indice e molte copie delle prime edizioni furono rapidamente distrutte dall'Inquisizione. Il suo autore venne accusato dopo la morte di praticare la magia; il suo corpo venne riesumato e bruciato pubblicamente per ordine dell'Inquisizione.

Frankfurt, Christian Egenolff, 1576. 8vo. Title-page in red and black ink, some woodcut initials. Contemporary limp vellum.

      Durling 2595; Hagelin, p. 23; Thorndike II, pp. 488-513. Second edition of a work by Petrus Hispanus (1215-1277). The main text is followed by the so-called Hippocratic oath which physicians had to take. It is widely believed that the oath was written by Hippocrates, in the Islamic world known as Boqrat, himself, or by one of his students, to establish certain ethical standards. "[Hispanius'] Thesaurus pauperum became perhaps the leading brief medical manual during the remainder of the Middle Ages ... The work was intended to be a condensed compilation and it's title, "The Treasure of the Poor", indicates that it was written especially for the benefit of poor students and medical practitioners, who could not afford many books" (Thorndike). The work gives easily available solutions to ailments and diseases, making much use of animal parts.Bookblock detached from binding, and some leaves detached as well. Browned and with some pencil annotations in the margins, otherwise still in good condition.

Heeren Staaten Generaal der Vereenighde Nederlanden ter eenre, ende verscheyde koningen, princen en patentaaten ter andere zyde. The Hague, Jacobus Scheltus, [between 1742 and 1759]. 4to. With a general title-page, followed by an index and 73 treaties, nearly all with their own title-page containing the original imprint and a woodcut of the Dutch lion (the arms of the States General) and a few with Van Wouw's printer's device. Contemporary vellum, with each treaty with a letterpress label attached, giving the index numbers.

      Myers, Manual of collections of treaties 1433a (doesn't distinguish eds.); STCN (6 copies); cf. Asher 176-180. Rare mid-18th-century edition of a collection of 73 treaties between the Dutch Republic and countries in Europe, including Belgium, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden. Since most treaties concern both the ending of hostilities and overseas commerce, many concern the Dutch East India Company (VOC), the Dutch West India Company (WIC) and the Dutch colonies. Several include translations of the treaties.The collection opens with the Union of Delft signed on 25 April 1576 by Willem I (William the Silent), Prince of Orange, and the provinces of Holland and Zeeland, which made a definitive federation of the two provinces, and ends with the treaty of commerce signed on 15 June 1701 between the States General and the King of Denmark and Norway. These documents represent some of the founding documents of the Dutch Republic along with assorted political documents and memorabilia of the Eighty Years War.Several other editions appeared under the same title, with a varying number of included treaties, ranging from 48 to 94.With a bookplate and a library label on paste-down. A few of the labels attached to each treaty are torn off, leaving a tiny tear in the right margin. Very good copy.

         Regia via crucis. Antwerp, Balthasar Moretus (Officina Plantiniana), 1635. 8vo (18 x 11.5 x 4 cm). With engraved title-page showing Christ, Saint Teresa of Avila and 2 unidentified men and 38 full-page emblematic engravings. Richly gold-tooled calf (ca. 1665), each board with the arms of (apparently) Abbot Placidus Buechauer (1611-1669) of Kremsmünster, gilt and elaborately gauffered edges.

      - Funck p. 328; Landwehr, Emblem Books Low Countries 271; Praz, p. 361; STCV 6843143. First edition (first issue), the only edition in the original Latin, of a lovely devotional emblem book with an engraved title-page and 38 engraved emblems, all on the theme of the holy cross, all engraved by Cornelis Galle the elder (1576-1650), at least the title-page after a drawing by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1648). The history of the present copy is unusually interesting and well documented. The first documented owner was Jakob Adalbert Schrenk(1634-1674) best known as a composer of church music. The 1650 inscription on the title-page shows that when he was 15 or 16 he gave it to Gotthard Freyd, then also at Kremsmünster. The book found its way to the Abbot at Kremsmünster, Placidus Buechauer (1611-1669), who had it splendidly bound before his 1669 death. With water stains at the head of one quire and the half-title speckled with ink(?), but generally in very good condition. The binding shows a few small wormholes, minor cracks or small abrasions and lacks the ties, but is still very good, with the tooling well preserved.

         Les jugemens astronomiques des songes, par Artemidorus, autheur ancien & renommé. Plus Le Livre d'Auguste Niphe des divinations, & Augures, par Antoine du Moulin

      Nicolas Bonsons, Paris 1576 - Plein veau pastiche Un volume in-16 (116x70 mm), 89-(6)-49 feuillets . Quelques petites déchirures, mouillures claires Ce traité d'interprétation des rêves - Oneirokritika, en grec - est le seul et unique ouvrage antique de ce genre qui nous soit parvenu dans son intégralité. Artémidore rédige un traité technique très fouillé qui a été extrêmement populaire durant tout le Moyen-Âge et a profondément influencé les mentalités. Freud tenait cet ouvrage en grande estime et en saluera l'importance dans Die Traumdeutung. La première traduction française de l'Onirocriticon date de 1546, mais seule la traduction des trois premiers livres sur les cinq fut alors publié (Trad. par Ch. Fontaine, chez Tournes à Lyon). En 1547 Marnef y ajoute le livre d'Augustin Niphe sur les divinations et augures (traduit par Antoine du Mouilin). En 1555 Tournes publie enfin la traduction des cinq livres et y ajoute celle d'un petit traité de Maxime Valère touchant les songes. Notre édition est la première complète de la traduction des cinq livres d'Artémidore, du petit traité de Maxime Valère et du livre de Niphe sur les divinations. Nous n'avons pas trouvé d'autre exemplaire de cette édition dans les bibliothèques publiques, à l'exception, peut-être, d'un exemplaire à la bibliothèque Sainte Geneviève (collation identique, mais page de titre manquante).

La sua analisi si estendeva al clero e al papato che egli esecrava per la loro ipocrisia. Opinioni cos" dure non potevano passare sotto silenzio e lo Zodiacus vitae fu ben presto messo all'indice e molte copie delle prime edizioni furono rapidamente distrutte dall'Inquisizione.

         Le cacce senza la bordura

      1576 - Il più importante impegno dello Stradano per l’arazzeria medicea fu l’esecuzione dei cartoni per il ciclo di 28 arazzi con scene di caccia destinati alla villa di Poggio a Caiano (1567). Queste incisioni appartengono al più antico gruppo di illustrazioni incise su disegno dello Stradano, ideate da Hieronimus Cock. Con grande lungimiranza egli intuì la fortuna che l’opera avrebbe riscosso, stipulando con lo Stradano un contratto per un numero cospicuo di disegni. La serie più antica consta di 6 tavole con la bordura incise a partire dal 1570. Successivamente alla morte di Cock la vedova publicò altre due serie da 6 tavole, una nel 1574 e l’altra, quella che proponiamo, nel 1576. Magnifiche prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "p gotico" (Briquet 8892 ove presente), con sottili margini, leggeri segni di usura nell’angolo inferiore destro di alcune tavole, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni circa 292x215. Hollstein IV p. 190, 512-514; A. Baroni Vannucci, pp. 354 /355, 685, 7/12. The most important work Stradano produced for the Medicean tapestry was the realization of the cartoons for the 28 arrases cycle with hunting scenes, which were intended to be hung in the Poggio a Caiano Villa (1567). These engravings belong to the most ancient production after Stradano’s drawings, realized by Hieronimus Cock.He had the farsightedness to understand that this work would have had great success, so he signed a contract with Stradano to have a considerable amount of drawings. The most ancient series consisted of 6 plates with plain rims engraved from 1570. After Cock’s death his widow published two more series of 6 plates, one in 1574 and the other one, which is also the one we are presenting, in 1576. Excellent works, printed on contemporary laid paper with "gothic P" watermark, with small margins, light sings of wear and tear on lower right margin of some plates, small repairs perfectly executed, in general in very good condition.

Domherrn von Santo Stefano in Verona Pietro Francesco ZINI (1520?-1574). Ephraem, der seinen bleibenden Wohnsitz in Edessa nahm, gilt als Begründer der Schule der Perser. Er wohnte als Einsiedler in einer Höhle nahe bei der Stadt, studierte und schriftstellerte unter Beten und Fasten und trat öfter als Bußprediger und Ketzerbestreiter auf. E. ist ein hervorragender Theologe und Schriftsteller der alten syrischen Kirche, ihr größter Redner und Hymnendichter. Er schrieb zahlreiche Kommentare zu biblischen Büchern und dogmatisch-polemische Werke. Vieles wurde ins Griechische übersetzt, aber auch ins Armenische, Arabische und Äthiopische. E. wird als Heiliger verehrt und wurde 1920 zum Doctor ecclesiae erklärt. (vgl. dazu Bautz I, 1519-1520).

        Opuscules

      Jacques Boscare, Douai 1576 - Woodcut printer's device on title, woodcut tailpieces. Contemporary calf, elaborate gilt embossing including a decorative lozenge on front and back covers inscribed "EN ESPERAT I DE CORTEVVILLE DESIRE FAICTIA CUIR M LXXVII," spine in compartments, front hinge reinforced, with elegant gauffered edges. Overall a spectacular binding and copy of an incredibly rare work. First and only (?) printing of this compilation of poetry in French and Latin with some additional verses in Italian and Flemish, a rare and unique example of a humanistic pursuit. The first twenty-four pages offer humorous sonnets and verses by Antoine Blondel and authors involved with his local poetic society (see below). Some of these poems lightly poke fun at Blondel and generally the various genres and forms of poetry. The volume is dedicated to Mademoiselle Marie d'Espinoy; nineteenth-century historians debated her identity, suggesting two possible sixteenth-century women: Philippotte Christine (also known as Marie-Philippine, Philippe-Chretienne, or Marie-Christine) de Lalaing (1454-1582), wife of Pierre de Melun (d. 1594), Prince of Epinoy; or Marie de Melun (d. 1634), daughter of Hugues de Melun (1520-1553), Prince of Epinoy, who married Lamoral (1563-1624), Prince of Ligne, a knight of the order of the Golden Fleece (Souvenirs de la Flandre wallonne, 50). The Antoine Blondel credited for this text was almost certainly the esteemed knight Antoine Blondel II (d. 1603), Baron de Cuinchy, Lord of Manicourt, Ghore, Villers-au-Bois, Saulchoy, Verquigneul, and Lambres. Blondel also served as Colonel of the Walloon regiment. In commendation for his command of the infantry in Malta against the Ottomans in 1565, he was awarded the title of Baron de Cuinchy-Prevot on September 20, 1586 by Philip II of Spain (Courcelles, p. 9). He eventually married Madelaine de Bercus with whom he had three children, Jacques II, Antoine-Floris, and Louis. Blondel lived in Milan where he excelled at all the arts of a gentleman, before returning to Cuincy where he established the small "banc poetique," a group dedicated to spinning verses about youthful beauty (Pettegree, 5859).In regards to the inscribed binding, we are certain that it is not related to the Blondel family's heraldry or armorial motto. However, the name Corteville may refer to the Flemish Corteville (Courteville or Cortewille) family, suggesting that the book was previously owned by a member of that noble clan. There is evidence that the family was based in Northern France, which was at the time part of Flanders (for example in Steenvoorde). One family member, Josse de Corteville, Lord of Polinchove, was tasked with a secret mission by Philippe II in 1577 (Parenty, 355).We have located only two other extant copies of this work at the Douai Bibliotheque municipal and Versailles Bibliotheque municipal. No copies located in OCLC.
