        FOREST Or Collection of Historyes No Lesse Profitable, Then Pleasant and Necessary, Doone Out of Frenche into English, by Thomas Fortescue

      London: John Day, 1576. VERY RARE ENGLISH PRINTING of Fortescue's translation, from a French version by Claude Gruget, of Pedro Mexia's "Silva de Varia Lecion." Engraved title-page within a very handsome historiated border, on the verso of which is a large engraved Fortescue coat of arms, printed in English Black Letter with engraved decorated initials throughout and engraved tailpieces. Small 4to (7.5" X 6"), bound in contemporary limp vellum, the spine lettered in antique manuscript, the fore-edge with leather ties still significantly intact, and curiously, with four leaves from the 16th century work "Voyage of the Wandering Knight bound in at the rear [6], 152, [4] ff., including final blank. Lacking signature oo (leaves 145-148) with no evidence that this signature was ever bound in. An attractive, clean and fresh copy, the text un-pressed, occasional early scholarly notations, the contemporary vellum with some expected wear, especially at the edges. VERY RARE. PUBLIC RECORDS SHOW NO COPIES HAVE APPEARED AT AUCTION AS FAR BACK AS THE 1970s, and there are no other copies known to be on the market. This is apparently the most elusive of the two rare English imprints, which OCLC lists in only 16 copies. Pedro Mexia's (1497-1551) work, in Fortescue's absolutely wonderful Elizabethan English, of tales covering the customs, practices and beliefs of the Romans, Greeks, Persians, Hebrews and early Christians with lessons to be learned from kings and authors on philosophy, science, astrology, government, military combat, religion and life. This is the major work of the Spanish Renaissance humanist and historian. It is an encyclopedic miscellany or mixture of subjects of interest across the diverse repertoire of humanistic knowledge of the time. The work takes material from the Attic Nights by Aulus Gellius, the Banquet of the Sophists by Ateneo, the Saturnalia of Macrobius, the Memorable deeds and sayings of Valerius Maximus, the Inventor of all things by Polidoro Virgilio, the Moralia and Parallel Lives of Plutarch and, above all, the Natural History of Pliny the Elder. It also contains work by Erasmus of Rotterdam, with whom he maintained correspondence. Traces of this miscellany can be found in works by Mateo Alemán, Cervantes, Shakespeare and Montaigne, to mention only a few of the authors he influenced.

        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).

Nizzoli’s chief work, a Latin glossary of words matched with Ciceronian equivalents Mario Nizzoli (1498-1576), or Marius Nizolius as he was known in Latin, was a professor at the University of Parma and one of the staunchest defenders of a strict Ciceronian imitation. His lexicon of Latin was based exclusively on the writings of Cicero and is regarded as ". one of the best known dictionaries from the 16th well into the 18th century (an edition was printed in England as late as in 1820). Leibniz wrote that this Lexicon would last as long as Cicero. The historian Arnold Toynbee has remarked that he was brought up on Nizolius in Latin school." (from "The Observationes in M. T. Ciceronem of Marius Nizolius" by Quirinus Breen /Studies in the Renaissance, Vol. 1, 1954 (1954), pp. 49-58). Nizzoli stood for the strictest kind of verbal imitation of Cicero an arranged his dictionary for the use of youth who aspired to attain the perfect style. This copy survives in good form in a wonderful period German binding of which others of the same style have been located. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1576. "A Worthy and Painful Work" Brooke, Sir Robert [?-1558]. La Graunde Abridgement, Collecte & Escrie per le Iudge Tresreverend Syr Robert Brooke Chivalier, Nadgairs Chiefe Iustice del Common Banke. [And] La Secounde Part du Graunde Abridgment.... London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottell, 1576. Two parts in one. [ii], 351; [i], 328 ff. Collates complete. Small folio (9-1/4" x 6"). Contemporary calf with recent rebacking, blind panels with large corner fleurons to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Moderate rubbing to board edges, a few minor scratches and scuffs, corners bumped and somewhat worn, hinges starting. Titles printed within woodcut architectural borders, woodcut decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to foot of text block, minor loss to fore-edges of title pages due to trimming. Tiny early owner signatures to title page of first part, interiors otherwise clean. An attractive copy. $1,250. * Second edition. Sir Robert Brooke was renowned for his great learning as a scholar and his probity as a judge. Holdsworth notes that Brooke's Abridgement "is based on Fitzherbert's Abridgement, but it contains much new material. In particular it abridges fully the Year Books of Henry VII's and Henry VIII's reigns." Brooke abridged nearly 21,000 cases under 404 alphabetical headings. He proceeded with great care and accuracy, and is understood to have had access to the original records of the Year Books. Coke calls the Abridgement "a worthy and painful work and an excellent repertory or table for the Year Books of the Law." It was first issued in 1573. Coke cited in Marvin, Legal Bibliography 151.

Winfield notes that "Coke put it among the books which he considered most necessary and of greatest authority and excellency"; Blackstone considered it an authority as well. Compiled from the earlier Natura Brevia and the Registrum Brevium, it includes several original observations on the form and function of writs. Rastell's revisions include the addition of a table. A popular work, it went through numerous editions in Law French and English, the final appearing in 1794. It remains significant to this day for its descriptions of writs that were becoming obsolete in the early sixteenth century. Winfield, Chief Sources of English Legal History 303.

Die Druckerei wurde von dem aus Reutlingen stammenden Sebastian Gryphius (Greyff; geboren 1493) gegründet, der von 1520 bis zu seinem Tode 1556 in Lyon gedruckt hat, seit 1528 selbständig. ?Seine Ausgaben klassischer Autoren wetteiferten mit denen von Aldus und Estienne.?

Appianos, griechischer Historiker aus Alexandreia, kaiserlicher Procurator, veröffentlichte um 160 eine Rhomaïke historia (Römische Geschichte) in 24 Büchern, soweit als möglich nach den verschiedenen von Rom unterworfenen Völkern geordnet. Ganz erhalten sind nur die Bücher 6?8 und 11?17: Kriege in Spanien, gegen Hannibal, in Afrika, in Syrien, gegen Mithradates und die Bürgerkriege (Rüdiger/Koppen, Kl. lit. Lex. 1, 1969). ?Die Quellenfrage ist viel behandelt, da Appian für wichtige Epochen (z.B. die Revolutionszeit) die Hauptquelle ist, und sehr schwierig. [.] Appian bewundert in einer noch gesicherten Zeit Roms Grösse und die Monarchie. Der historische Wert dieser Kriegsgeschichte hängt von den Quellen ab; Appian selbst gilt eher als Dilettant [.].? (Lexikon der Alten Welt, Zürich 1965, sp. 230, mit relativ einlässlichem Artikel). ?So viel hat sich in jedem Fall gezeigt, dass sich Appian in den verschiedenen Teilen seines Werkes nicht einer einzigen Quelle verschrieb.

Contemporary blindstamped Pigskin over wooden boards with ribbed back, Folio (the binding is worn at some places, 'Reformationsband' with many stamps on the boards depicting various saints. Johann Brenz (1499-1570) was a German reformer. Under the influence of Luther he reorganized his church at Hall, Suabia, but at the time of the Smalkaldie War, in 1546, he was obliged to flee to Württemberg. He was appointed minister of the Collegiate Church of Stuttgart in 1553, and is said to have been the first exponent of the Reformation there. In the controversies between Zwingli and Luther, he took the side of the latter, and with others wrote the famous Syngramma Suevicum (1525). He was a writer of great ability and popularity. One of his teachings was that the body of the Lord is everywhere present; hence his followers were called ‘Ubiquitarians.’) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Printer's device on title, large historiated woodcut initials and headpieces. Very light age yellowing. Good copies in crushed crimson modern morocco, panel ruled in triple-blind with gilt corner fleurons and gilt-stamped border, 3 ornaments to central panels. Spines gilt in 5 compartments with classical motifs of harps, columns and figures, a.e.r. In marbled box. i) Pedro Cieza de León (1518-1584) served in the Indies under Pizarro and lived for 17 years in Peru. His 'Istorie' is based on this long stay and his travels from place to place in the "Great Kingdom". Divided into 122 chapters it begins with the discovery of the Indies and the foundation of Panama, then describes historical events and geographical characteristics of the various provinces which Cieza visited, and offers a fascinating account of the habits of the indigenous peoples. "One of the more important sources for the early history of Peru. The author describes Peru's resources, vegetation and Indian tribes from personal experience, and also comments on Spanish administration of the region" JFB C256 on the second ed. Cieza never published a sequel to this 'Prima Parte' (though according to Sabin p.73 it exists in ms.). Nonetheless, these two related essays by the Spanish-American historian Francisco Lopez de Gomara are habitually treated as the second and third parts, the first being a history of the Western Indies, the second of Mexico. ii) Important early essay by Spanish-American historian Lopez de Gomara on the history of the New West Indies, "covering the discovery, early exploration and first settlement of the New World by the Spaniards," (Sabin on 1564 ed). Beginning with a discussion of the nature and location of the 'Antipodes' - meaning those places on the opposite side of the world - the text moves on to discuss the life and times of Christopher Columbus and a wealth of information on the religions, customs, geographies and appearance, of i.a. Honduras, Cuba, Venezuela, Peru and Nicaragua. The text discusses the division of territories between the Spanish and the Portuguese, the lives and achievements of the principal conquistadors, conflicts and allegiances with the natives including the Incas and reports mass deaths amongst the local population due to the introduction of alien germs such as smallpox. Although Francisco López de Gómara (c. 1511-1566) never actually visited the New World, through his close acquaintance with Cortés and leading conquistadors he had unparalleled access to first-hand testimony and documentary sources making this work "indispensable to the student of Spanish affairs after the conquest" (Sabin) and a prime resource for 16th century Latin-American history. iii) Continuation of Gomara's history of the West Indies, dealing primarily with the conquest of Mexico and focused on the personality of Hernán Cortés, leader of the Spanish expedition. Cortes' audacious adventures against Montezuma's Mexican empire from 1518 onwards aroused great interest in his native Spain, and won rich and extensive colonies for Charles V. The work contains a considerable amount of biographical, anthropological and topographical information, in addition to a detailed and lively account of Cortes' voyage and campaigns against the Aztecs, culminating in Spanish dominance over the former Aztec Empire. It concludes with a Nahuatl vocabulary and some general information on Aztec social customs, religious practices and cosmographical theories. i) "One [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La perspective avec la raison, des ombres et miroirs. London, John Norton [printed partly by Jan Mommaert the elder in Brussels and partly by Richard Field in London], 1612. Royal folio (52 x 28.5 cm). With engraved title-page and 80 etched and engraved illustrations: 64 on otherwise blank pages, mostly on integral leaves (2 across double-pages, further mostly full-page), and 16 on the text pages (from small to half-page). Contemporary dark brown calf. Rebacked, restored and with new endpapers.

      Cf. Berlin Kat. 4706; ESTC S124665 & S122163; Vagnetti EIIIb7: "opera molto chiara" (splendid work); VD17 1:080353E (London/Frankfurt issue); not in BAL; Fowler; Millard. First edition of a famous and original treatise on perspective by the prominent mathematician Salomon de Caus (1576?-1626), here in the very rare issue with the imprint of John Norton in London (alone) in 1612, with the name and date revised in the title-plate. The ESTC records 1611 London and 1612 London/Frankfurt issues of Caus's Perspective, but not the present 1612 London issue.Caus was renowned as an inventor of mechanical devices, both utilitarian and entertaining. His present work clearly explains and illustrates all aspects of perspective drawing, including intricate projections, optical illusions, shadows, anamorphic images and the mirroring of objects. With 2 contemporary perspective construction drawings in the foot margin of one page and some manuscript annotations. One plate has two small abrasions in the corner, but the book is further in very good condition, with only some small marginal tears and minor marginal water stains. Binding rebacked and restored, so structurally sound. A very rare issue of the first edition of a classic work on perspective, with 81 beautiful engravings.

London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottell, 1576. Two parts in one. [ii], 351; [i], 328 ff. Collates complete. Small folio (9-1/4" x 6"). Contemporary calf with recent rebacking, blind panels with large corner fleurons to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine. Moderate rubbing to board edges, a few minor scratches and scuffs, corners bumped and somewhat worn, hinges starting. Titles printed within woodcut architectural borders, woodcut decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining to foot of text block, minor loss to fore-edges of title pages due to trimming. Tiny early owner signatures to title page of first part, interiors otherwise clean. An attractive copy. * Second edition. Sir Robert Brooke was renowned for his great learning as a scholar and his probity as a judge. Holdsworth notes that Brooke's Abridgement "is based on Fitzherbert's Abridgement, but it contains much new material. In particular it abridges fully the Year Books of Henry VII's and Henry VIII's reigns." Brooke abridged nearly 21,000 cases under 404 alphabetical headings. He proceeded with great care and accuracy, and is understood to have had access to the original records of the Year Books. Coke calls the Abridgement "a worthy and painful work and an excellent repertory or table for the Year Books of the Law." It was first issued in 1573. Coke cited in Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 151. Holdsworth, History of English Law II:545. English Short-Title Catalogue S106717. Beale, A Bibliography of Early English Law Books R471, R472.

      S.l. (París), 1576 - . 33 cm. Sin paginar, pero 16 h., a doble cara. Enc. media piel, puntas * Se trata de la traducción coetánea de un edicto del rey de Francia Enrique III leído ante el Parlamento francés, sobre la paz y restauración del orden en la nación. El documento manuscrito contiene el concierto y orden que su majestad quiere y entiende sea guardado para el mantenimiento de la paz. Como comenta Michel Péronnet en "El siglo XVI, de los grandes descubrimientos a la contrarreforma" (AKAL, pág. 311), "Desde su llegada a Francia, Enrique III reculta un ejército e intenta reconquistar las provincias del sur (invierno de 1574-1575). El 6 de mayo de 1576 [muy poco antes, por lo tanto, de la redacción del presente edicto] se firma una nueva paz entre ambos bandos: la paz de Beaulieu o la "paix de Monsieur" en homenaje a Francisco Alençon [hermano del rey]. Las nuevas disposiciones que recoge, muchas de ellas presentes en estas páginas, son de gran importancia, pues servirán de base al posterior edicto de Nantes promulgado por Enrique IV en 1598 y que pondría fin a las guerras de religión. Entre dichas disposiciones, el monarca indemniza a todas las víctimas de San Bartolomé, concede la libertad de culto y ofrece garantías militares, entre otros, atribuyendo guarniciones defensivas a las tropas protestantes. historia de francia, guerras de religión, siglo XVI, enrique III, edictos

        Enthroned initial letter portrait of Elizabeth I

      Westminster: 20th July [1576]. 1 p., large folio, 22 x 29 inches, written in ink in a good departmental hand, the portrait c. 5 x 3 inches finely executed in ink and wash within the interlacing strapwork initial ?E?, folded, matted and framed with a portrait of the Queen. The seal is lacking but remains of the laces are present. Some staining along the top margin, small black dot in the centre of the Queen?s forehead. A fine and rare example of a contemporary letter portrait of Elizabeth I, at the age of 42. The document grants the Manor of Northaw and other lands in Hertfordshire to Ambrose Dudley, Earl of Warwick, in exchange for the Manor of Rosedale Priory transferred to the Crown. Auction records show 10 such portraits selling between 1987 and 1997, none since. The old description seems to originate from Maggs.

      Mexico City: Pedro Ocharte and Antonio Espinosa, 1576. Near fine. Single leaf 10 by 15 inches, printed on both sides on fine paper in red and black. The leaf begins with the chant "Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus" and a large two line woodcut 'P' in red. Near the bottom begins the 'Feria secunda post Pascha. Introitus", with the verse "Introduxit vos dominus in terram..." and beginngin with a large historialed woodcut intiial 'I' printed in red and black. On the obverse is found the beginning of the Gradual "Hec [sic] dies quam fecit dominus..." and with a large two line woodcut 'H' printed in red. The five line chant has staves printed in red with black notes, the stems on the virgae descending to the bottom line of music regardless of where they occur on the staff, a point which distinguishes this printing form many others. The first and third music selections are in the 'fah' clef; the introit in the 'do' clef. The term American Incunabula is generally used to indicate imprints in the Americas in the 16th century beginning with Mexico City in 1539. A little fingering and soil else this is a very good exemplar and quite rare. Only 4 copies of the Graduale are known (Library of Congress, Newberry Library, Biblioteca Nacional and one in private hands in Mexico. We have been unable to find a census of individual leaves form the Graduale but note that there are no copies of it otherwise available, nor are there many other American Incunabular available leaves either.

"Cum gemino Indice: priore verborum, locutionum & sententiarum: posteriore eorum quae Commentariis D. Lambini continentur". Testo latino. Cm.33,5x20,7. Pg.(8), 792, (56). Legatura in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso a quattro nervature. Un bollino cartaceo applicato al piatto anteriore. Al frontespizio marca tipografica raffifurante un serpente tra le fiamme che morde un mano divina, con il motto "Neque mors, neque venenum". Cartigli e capilettera incisi. Pubblicata la prima volta l'anno precedente, nel 1576, la versione del Lambino delle 20 commedie di Plauto, con ricchissimo apparato di commentari e note, è opera di grande rarità. Il presente testo ne costituisce una contraffazione assai stimata, al pari di quella pubblicata nello stesso anno a Lione. Tito Maccio Plauto (Sarsina, tra il 255 e il 250 a.C. ?" 184 a.C.) fu uno dei principali commediografi romani, esponente del genere teatrale della "Palliata" promosso da Livio Andronico, innovatore della letteratura latina. Assai popolare ai tempi di Cicerone, ebbe straordinaria capacità di rappresentare i caratteri umani, attingendo spesso alla letteratura classica greca. Dionisio Lambino, nome italianizzato di Denis Lambin (Montreuil - sur - Mer, 1516?"1572) fu un apprezzato filologo. Compiuti gli studi ad Amiens ed a Tolosa, passò nel 1550 al servizio del Cardinale De Tournon, con cui compì numerosi viaggi in Italia, segnatamente a Roma, Lucca e Venezia, ove tradusse dal greco in latino l'"Etica Nicomachea" di Aristotele. Tradusse poi Orazio, Lucrezio, Cicerone, Cornelio nepote e, appunto, Plauto. La prima edizione a stampa delle commedie plautiane risale al 1472, mentre la più diffusa, prima di quella del Lambino, fu quella del Camerarius (1552).

L'autore affronta il problema sia nel Mediterraneo, in particolare nel Mar Adriatico e nel mare di Corsica e Sardegna fino alle stretto di Gibilterra, sia nell'oceano. Diversi capitoli sono infatti dedicati all'Oceano Pacifico e soprattutto all'Oceano Atlantico, in cui le maree sono spiegate in base ad un fenomeno per cui lo stretto di Magellano causerebbe un ostruzione al costante flusso oceanico orientato da est ad ovest. Questo fenomeno, secondo lo Sfondrati, spiegherebbe anche la presenza di maree sulle coste del Brasile e la loro assenza nel Golfo del Messico a partire dallo stretto di Panama. Lo Sfondrati, scienziato e scrittore cremonese, fu attivo a Ferrara nella seconda metà  Cinquecento. Pubblicò anche un trattato In febrim (Torino, 1576) (cfr. F.

      Westminster: 20th July [1576]. 1 p., large folio, 22 x 29 inches, written in ink in a good departmental hand, the portrait c. 5 x 3 inches finely executed in ink and wash within the interlacing strapwork initial â??Eâ?, folded, matted and framed with a portrait of the Queen. The seal is lacking but remains of the laces are present. Some staining along the top margin, small black dot in the centre of the Queenâ??s forehead. A fine and rare example of a contemporary letter portrait of Elizabeth I, at the age of 42. The document grants the Manor of Northaw and other lands in Hertfordshire to Ambrose Dudley, Earl of Warwick, in exchange for the Manor of Rosedale Priory transferred to the Crown. Auction records show 10 such portraits selling between 1987 and 1997, none since. The old description seems to originate from Maggs.

        Folio 150 from the Graduale Dominicali, New Spain, 1576

      Mexico City: Pedro Ocharte and Antonio Espinosa, 1576. Near fine. Single leaf 10 by 15 inches, printed on both sides on fine paper in red and black. The leaf begins with the chant "Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus" and a large two line woodcut 'P' in red. Near the bottom begins the 'Feria secunda post Pascha. Introitus", with the verse "Introduxit vos dominus in terram..." and beginngin with a large historialed woodcut intiial 'I' printed in red and black. On the obverse is found the beginning of the Gradual "Hec [sic] dies quam fecit dominus..." and with a large two line woodcut 'H' printed in red. The five line chant has staves printed in red with black notes, the stems on the virgae descending to the bottom line of music regardless of where they occur on the staff, a point which distinguishes this printing form many others. The first and third music selections are in the 'fah' clef; the introit in the 'do' clef. The term American Incunabula is generally used to indicate imprints in the Americas in the 16th century beginning with Mexico City in 1539. A little fingering and soil else this is a very good exemplar and quite rare. Only 4 copies of the Graduale are known (Library of Congress, Newberry Library, Biblioteca Nacional and one in private hands in Mexico. We have been unable to find a census of individual leaves form the Graduale but note that there are no copies of it otherwise available, nor are there many other American Incunabular available leaves either.

        Discours sur les moyens de bien gouverner et maintenir en bonne paix un Royaume ou autre Principauté

A Treshaut & Tres-illustre Prince François Duc d'Alençon, fils & frere de Roy.A refutation of Machiavelli, in which the French lawyer and theologian Innocent Gentillet (1535-1588) condemns the ideas of Machiavelli whom he accuses of wanting to introduce impiety and immorality into government. And he accuses the Italians surrounding Catherine de Medicis of propagating Machiavelli's views. The Discours, which appeared first in Latin (in 1571), then in French, and much later (in 1602) in English, became a widely read text through to the mid-17th century. Gentillet agrees that the source of wealth in a State derives from a large population. Infighting and bad laws are detrimental to population growth and luxury is contrary to national welfare. Gentillet's Discours, known popularly as his Anti-Machiavelli, is notable as the first significant rebuttal of Machiavelli's political philosophy.* Probably Dr. Werner von Raven (born 1873), the son of a Prussian army officer, who studied medicine at the Kaiser Wilhelm Academy between 1896-98, qualifying as a doctor in 1902.

        Divini amoris pharetra: item, Iesu Christi ad animam fidelem alloquium, authore Ioan Lansperg Huic aeditioni primum accessit, Jesu Christi Crucifixi, & peccatoris colloquium saluberrimum, Iacobi Gruytrodij carthusiani, cum aliquot aliorum precibus

      Cologne: Apud Ludovici Alectorium & Heredes Jacobi Soteris, 1576. Contemporary German blind-tooled pigskin, spine with four raised bands, early paper spine label lettered in MS. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. Duodecimo (126 x 78 mm). [10], 466, [3] pp. Title page with an elaborate woodcut printer's device (an inverted Pentagram) Rare edition of this interesting work, which powerfully embodies the idea of the Sacred Heart (i.e. the Heart of Christ which was pierced by the lance of a Roman soldier) as the image for mystical contemplation and devotion. That the title page is adorned with an INVERTED PENTAGRAM and SCANDAVIAN RUNES is highly unusual. Harold Bayley, in his "Lost Language of Symbolism" illustrates and describes the present printer's device: "The characters appearing in the angles of fig. 596 are unknown to me, but they appear to be Runic" (pp. 257-258). * In this work, entitled "Pharetra divini amoris" (i.e. "Quiver of Divine Love") Lanspergius recommended that all the monks at the Charterhouse of Cologne pray before an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in their cells. The picture looked like a heart which had been pierced by a lance, with representations of feet and hands to associate it with the Five Wounds that Christ received on the Cross. * "Pharetra divini amoris" contains prayers, spiritual exercises and topics for meditation on the Divine Love, the Sacred Heart, and the Passion of Christ. * The author asserts that "Not only is the Sacred Heart the seat of all the virtues, but it is also the source of the graces by aid of which we acquire and preserve these virtues. Have devotion to the Sacred Heart all full of love and mercy; through It, demand all that you wish to obtain, by It, offer all your actions because the Sacred Heart is the treasury of all supernatural gifts. It is, so to speak, the way by which we unite ourselves more closely with God and through which God communicates Himself most lovingly to us" [Lanspergius, Pharetra divini amoris]. * The author was a "Carthusian monk and ascetical writer, b. at Landsberg in Bavaria 1489, d. at Cologne, 11 Aug., 1539. His family name was Gerecht, of which Justus is merely a Latin translation. The appellation, however, by which he is generally known is that of Lanspergius (of Landsberg), from his birthplace. After studying philosophy at the University of Cologne, he joined the Carthusian Order at the age of twenty (1509)...The chief feature of his writings is a deep, ardent, and tender piety. The love of God for man, calling for a corresponding love of man for God, such is his usual theme treated in various ways. One thing particularly worthy of mark is the frequency with which he speaks of the Heart of Christ, and pressingly exhorts every Christian to take the Sacred Heart as an object of special love, veneration, and imitation. Indeed it may perhaps be said that no one before him had laid down and explained so clearly the principles upon which that devotion is grounded, nor had so developed their practical application."

      S.l. [Nuremberg]: s.n. [Nikolas Knorr], 1576. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. Small 4to. 4 ff. (including final blank), blindstamp of now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut. Recent sympathetic quarter calf over sprinkled boards, red morocco lettering piece A contemporary German "newspaper" account of the Peace of Monsieur, being a Treaty of 63 Articles and concessions to the Huguenots, signed in Paris, with descriptions of ceremony and circumstance in which the Edict was delivered publically, including the regalia and robes of Henri III. Of this text no copy is listed in CCFr. "The proclamation of peace was made on the 14th day of May, 1576, the King proceeding in state to notify the same to the assembled chambers. The concessions made to the Huguenots, and the vast sums of money distributed, so incensed the public, that in the capital, and in many of the principal towns, the heralds were received with hissing and throwing of stones. The people of Paris, moreover, refused to permit bonfires to be lighted; and smashed the windows of any who, in obedience to the royal order, attempted an illumination. The placards announcing the peace, and the copies of the treaty signed at Beaulieu and posted in the public squares, were torn to shreds. When the King quitted the Chambers he desired to proceed to the celebration of a Te Deum in Notre Dame ; but the exasperation of the Parisians caused the ceremony to be deferred to the following day. This being accordingly done, not one individual of the chapter of Notre Dame was then to be prevailed upon to officiate at the thanksgiving canons, chaplains, and choristers, one and all, refused to sing a Te Deum for the dishonor done, as they averred, to the holy Roman faith. The clergy and choir of the royal chapel in the Louvre, therefore, were directed to intone the Te Deum, at which no personages of note assisted, excepting the public bodies present by mandate or state-precedent, and the nobles and ladies in the suite of the king and queen" (SOURCE: Martha W. Freer, Henry III, King of France and Poland: His Court and Times. From numerous unpublished sources, including ms. documents in the Bibliotheque Imperiale, and the archives of France and Italy, etc., 1888, vol. 3, pp. 105-106). Over a year after his coronation, Henri III found himself unable to cope with the intensity of the hostility between the Catholics and Protestants. He had been besieged in Paris by Protestant army, supported by his brother, Alencon. The royal army was quite unable to defend the capital and even less capable of fighting a battle, and the king was forced to sign peace terms on May 2, 1576, published as the Peace of Beaulieu on May 14, 1576. At this time Henri held a "lit de justice" in Paris to confirm the treaty establishing the "Peace of Monsieur." "The so-called Peace of Monsieur included the most liberal terms the Protestants were ever to receive during the civil wars. They were granted a large degree of religious freedom, given 'chambres mi-partis,' or tribunals with equal numbers of Catholics and Protestants, in all the 'parlements,' decreet full pardon and rehabilitation for all past transgressions and rebellious acts, and granted eight 'places de surete'" (SOURCE: James B. Wood, The King's Army: Warfare, Soldier's and Society during the Wars of Religion" p. 36). The edict gave Huguenots permission to worship and even to build churches, except in Paris and immediate surroundings. The king also submitted to Huguenot demands in publicly expressing his "very great regret and displeasure" over the events of the Saint Bartholomew's Day and reversing legal judgments against Admiral Coligny and others. See also N.M. Sutherland, The Huguenot Struggle for Recognition, 1980, pp. 228-231.

Rare first Italian edition, published in the same year and by the same printer as the second French one. "Fort estimée et recherchée pour les excellentes figures" (Olschki). Silvius re-issued the book in 1577 with a new title page; he simultaneously produced a German and a Dutch version, all with the same illustrations, considered "the first serious introduction to Turkish costume" (Atabey). The costumes include Janissaries, merchants, pilgrims, peasants, clerics, a physician, a cook, etc. "C'est la première série de documents sérieux sur les habillements du proche Orient" (Colas). The woodcuts, based on the etchings in the original edition, which appeared in Lyon in 1567/68, are usually attributed to Assuerus van Londerseel (Ahasver von Landfeldt), but Mortimer, Funck and Hollstein cite Antonij van Leest. "Nicolay was the royal geographer sent by Henri II to Constantinople to join d'Aramon's embassy in 1551.

        Candia & The City of Corfu. "Candia" & " La Cita de Corfu

      Greece: Cologne G von Kempen? 1576. 2 copper engraved views of the Venetian cities of Iraklion, Crete and Corfu from the second volume of Braun & Hogenberg's "Civitas Orbis Terrarum. " German text to verso; original old colour; 2 views on 1 plate. The upper view shows Iraklion known as "Candia" during the Venetian occupation seen from the sea with the castle and city walls, A fishing boat and galley to foreground. The lower view of the Old Fort and town of Corfu/ Kerkyra ; The citadel topped by "old "and "new" castles and separated by a moat from the city; many venetian galleys in the port and surrounding sea; various areas identified including San Rocho and "El Bazzaro" now known as the Spianada . Dark impression; old colour; light toning; occasional spotting, one darker rust spot to upper right corner of Candia ,another to port of Corfu.[near to one of the moored galleys] and on the sea side lower right ; some smudges and soiling, mainly to blank margins; old tear to lower plate near centre fold, approx. 90mm, with old repair to verso; A few stains to blank verso. The "Civitas Orbis Terrarum" of Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg was the first systemstic city atlas, possible intended to compliment the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum "of Abraham Ortelius published in 1570. There is strong evidence that Braun, Hogenberg and Ortelius discussed the planned work, although some scholars believe it was influenced by Sabastien Munster's "Cosmographia" R A Skelton in his introduction to the facsimile edition [ 1965] puts the case f for the "Theatrum " of Ortelius being the model for the work ( "(it) is made abundantly clear by the similarity between the two works in title, in format and in the layout and serial order of the plates and text" First publishe in 1572 in Cologne just two years after Ortelius' " Theatrum" it was published in six volumes in the years between 1572 and 1617. Georg Braun [1541-1622], Canon of Cologne Cathedral wrote the preface for all but the last volume and also the text accompanying each plan or view on the verso. The plates were engraved by Frans Hogenberg and Simon Novellanus after the original drawings of Joris Hoefnagel[1542-1600] who travelled with Ortelius through Italy and also made extensive travels through France Spain and England Following the death of Frans Hogenberg the plates were engraved by Abraham Hogenberg, believed to be his son. Jacob Hoefnagel continued the work of his father following his death, particularly the Austrian and Hungarian cities. Other notable contributers were Heinrich Rantzau with maps and plans of northern Europe, especially Denmark and Jacob van Deventer's plans of cities in the Netherlands. . Braun corresponded with mapsellers and scholars throughout the world and it was his idea to include the figures of local inhabitants in the foreground of the plans and views, This was not just to add "Local colour" but believing the work could be of refence for Military use, particularly by the Turks. the insertion of images of the human form. specifically forbidden by Islam, was intended to prevent this.
