DIONYSIOS Periegetes - POMPONIUS MELA - (Pseudo-)AETHICUS - SOLINUS.
(Genf), Henricus Stephanus 1577.. 4°. (4) Bll., 158 Ss., (8) Bll.; (4) Bll., 47 Ss., (1) S. (weiß); 152 Ss. Mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke. Flexibles Pergament d. Zt. (stark gebräunt, fleckig, Rücken mit kleinem Einriss) mit handgeschr. Rückentitel und Rückenschildchen mit Bibliotheks-Signatur; ohne die Bindebänder. 1547 war eine Dionysius-Edition bei Robert Estienne in Paris erschienen, die in der vorliegenden durch seinen Sohn erheblich erweitert wurde; in der Zusammenstellung mit Mela und Solinus erste Ausgabe (der Eustathius-Text erschien erstmalig in der R..-Estienne-Ausgabe 1547, die Kosmographie des Pseudo-Aethicus ist häufiger mit Dionysius in einer Ausgabe vereinigt gewesen). Dionysios Periegetes stammt aus Alexandrien und verfasste seine Orbis descriptio unter Hadrian. Diese Geographie in Versform war bis ins 19. Jahrhundert ein vielgelesenes Werk, die hohe Wertschätzung im Mittelalter zeigt sich z.B. an dem ausführlichen Eustathius-Kommentar. Pomponius Mela schrieb Mitte des 1. Jahrhunderts nach Christus das älteste erhaltene geographische Werk der Römer; intensiv rezipiert wurde es in der Frührenaissance (Boccaccio, Petrarca). Die unter dem Namen des Aethicus überlieferte Kosmographie stammt wohl von einem Autor des 8. Jahunderts, der der frühkarolinischen Hofgeschichtsschreibung nahegestanden hat. Solinus (3. Jh. n. Chr.) schließlich verfaßte eine eng an Plinius angelehnte Sammlung von Merkwürdigkeiten. Vorderer Spiegel mit wiederholter Laßberg-Bibliothekssignatur, vorderer Vorsatz mit handschr.

(Varthema, Lodovico di.
London, Richard Jugge, 1577.. 4to. Title leaf, (8), 466, (6) ff. (numerous misnumberings). With historiated woodcut initials. Modern crushed red morocco by Pratt, boards paneled and gilt, spine gilt with raised bands, all edges gilt.. The first English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous travels to Arabia, Persia, and India: the highly important and adventurous narrative containing the first recorded visit of a Westerner to Mecca. All early editions of Varthema's "Itinerario" are exceedingly rare (even the 2013 Hajj exhibition at the MIA, Doha, only featured the 1654 reprint; cf. below). - Varthema, a gentleman adventurer and soldier from Bologna, left Venice at the end of 1502. In 1503 he reached Alexandria and ascended the Nile to Cairo, continuing to Beirut, Tripoli, Aleppo and Damascus, where, adopting Islam and taking the name of Yunas, he joined a Mameluke escort of a Hajj caravan and began the pilgrimage to Mecca. Varthema was amazed by what he observed: "Truly I never saw so many people collected in one spot as during the twenty days I remained there", he begins, and arriving at the Great Mosque, continues, "it would not be possible to describe the sweetness and the fragrances which are smelt within this temple." Thanks to his knowledge of Arabic and Islam, Varthema was able to appreciate the local culture of the places he visited. Impressed and fascinated, he describes not only rites and rituals, but also social, geographical, and day-to-day details. "I determined, personally, and with my own eyes", he declares in the prefatory dedication, "to ascertain the si … [Click Below for Full Description]

JOSEPHUS, FLAVIUS
Basileae: J. Froben, 1544; Geneuae: apud Eustathium Vignon, 1577. EDITIO PRINCEPS of Josephus. This is a pleasing contemporary copy of two important Greek accounts of the classical world--the first printing in the original Greek of Froben's Josephus, which was for generations the standard history of the Jews upon which subsequent editions were based, and Arrian's account of his circumnavigation of the Black Sea, which seems to contain the earliest map to show separately the immediate region of that body of water. Born in Jerusalem to Jewish parents, Josephus (ca. 37 - ca. 100) was swept up in the Jewish rebellion against Rome begun in 66, and eventually captured by Vespasian's troops. Brought before the commander, he was inspired to prophesy that Vespasian would become emperor. As a consequence of this propitious forecast, his life was spared, and when the prophecy came true two years later, he was freed, awarded Roman citizenship, given the Vespasian family name of Flavius, and eventually pensioned on an estate, where he devoted the rest of his life to writing Jewish histories. Included in this corpus are his "Jewish Antiquities," comprising 20 books on the history of the Jews from the Creation to the outbreak of the war with Rome; "The Jewish War," eight books covering the years of the revolt until 73, written largely from his own knowledge; a narrative of his own life, apparently to defend himself against the charge that he had been the cause of the Jewish rebellion; and two books "Against Apion," an attempt to dispel current misrepresentations of the Jews.

At the height of the witchcraft delusion he argued that witches were mentally ill women who deserved humane treatment instead of torture and punishment. Weyer reduced the clinical problems of psychopathology to simple terms of everyday life and everyday, human, inner experiences" (Garrison / Morton 4916 zur Ausgabe 1563). Diese im Quart-Format gedruckte Ausgabe enthält erstmals auch das "Liber apologeticus". Weyer schrieb das Werk 1561 auf Schloß Hambach bei Jülich, wo Weyer (auch Wier, Weier geschrieben) Leibarzt von Herzog Wilhelm war, dem das Buch gewidmet ist.

The Catholic Encyclopedia (1917) online notes that the work contains "many valuable topographical and archaeological observations." Nicely printed in italic type (without maps), the work has a good index. The separate title-page of vol. II gives Isole appartenenti alla Italia, dated 1576. Venice is treated here, as an island, not as part of "the mainland."

Top corner of front board bumped and a small tear to upper front hinge and lower back hinge, otherwise very nice. Repair to one leaf (a ii), otherwise Internally very nice and clean. Old owner's inscription to title-page. Large title-woodcut. Woodcut initials and vignettes.

The rare second edition of Bodin's seminal main work, in which "sovereignty" is defined and treated extensively for the first time. "Bodin's "statement of sovereignty" is the first systematic one in modern European philosophy, and thus deserves a landmark status." (SEP). The work is also the first to coin the term "Political Science"; it occupies a central place in European political thought and immensely influenced all thinkers on the subject throughout centuries. "... for the next three centuries the political thought of the West will be preoccupied with these ideas, with a new theory of the State and with the concept of Sovereignty." (Catlin, A History of the Political Philosophers, 1950, p. 207).The extremely scarce first edition, first issue of the "Six Books of the Republic" appeared in 1576 and bears this date on the title-page, a second issue of the first edition also appeared, like this second edition bearing the year 1577 on the title-page.

Marginal annotations in cont. hand, some shaved. A nice copy w. only occasional minor brownspotting and a damp stain to top of first four, and a few later, leaves, not affecting text. Also a damp stain to lower margin of about 30 leaves, mostly towards end, barely affecting text. Last leaf soiled and w. repair to bottom, not affecting text. Owner's inscription to title-page stating that Stephanus Johannes from Copenhagen, Denmark, bought the book in Wittenberg in June 1622, inscription shaved. (8), 792 pp., ff. (28, -Index). ¶ The rare counterfeit-edition of the excellent Lambinus-edition of Plautus' works, which originally appeared in 1576. A counterfeit-edition also appeared in Cologne in 1577, and they are both of as great value to Plautus-scholarship as the 1576-edition, all three being of about equal scarcity.The work is especially esteemed for its commentaries, emendations and notes by Lambinus. "The celebrity of Lambinus in almost every classical work which he edited, has already been frequently noticed. Of this admirable edition, Lambinus lived to finish only the first twelve comedies; but his colleague, Helius, professor of Greek, completed the work, partly by transcribing what remained in Lambinus's hand-writing on the subsequent comedies, and partly by the insertion of his own notes, and emendations of the text. In forming the edition, many MSS. And ancient publications were consulted. "I … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Anon. and John of Austria]
Anvers [Antwerp]: Guillaume Sylvius, 1577. First edition (pp. [73], [82]). Quarto (19 cm), early nineteenth century full calf, five raised bands, fancy gilt titles and decorations to spine and edges. An early document associated with the wars for Dutch independence and the founding of the Dutch republic, describes those events arising out of the repression of Dutch protestants by the appointed agents of Philip II, the Hapsburg King of Spain.  The first section of the book is an account of the various repressive measures undertaken by the king and his agents; the second comprises a number of letters (the originals in Spanish with French translations) to and from John of Austria implicating him in such activities. In 1576, following the death of Requesens, his governor-general for the Netherlands (which included Belgium, Luxembourg, and a piece of northern France), Philip selected his half-brother John of Austria to regain control of the region and put down once and for all the rebellious Dutch cities and towns. Philip employed a mercenary army to occupy the region and prosecute his campaigns against the Dutch protestants, but, partly because he was also fighting an expensive war against the Turks and was therefore often short of funds, his hired armies often went unpaid or at best were paid irregularly. Periodically, then, Philip's mercenaries mutineed and turned for satisfaction on the nearest promising civil population, cutting wide swathes through the country, looting and pillaging as they went. In the result, Philip's occupation of the Netherlands was unpopular even amon … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guevara, Antonio de, Bishop (1480-1545), Sir Geoffrey Fenton
London: 1577: Ralph Newberrie. Printed: 1577. 1539-1608 Quarto in eight's, 7.5 x 5.25 inches. Third edition, both works. A4, A-Z8, Aa-Cc6, Dd4. Ù2, A-Y8. The final blank, Y8, is present in this copy. This is a fine copy in later parchment over stiff boards with gold tooled boards and spine. A few fine worm trails and a bit of light waterstaining do little to impede appreciation of this copy. The signature and stenciled ownership marks of William O'Grady appear on the front free endleaf. The tasteful stencil of a horse's head is repeated on the title page and in the margin of the first page of the letter to the reader. Courtesy books were very popular across continental Europe and England in the sixteenth century. Written to convey proscriptive advice for kings, princes, and members of the court, they may be understood as the very earliest literature of 'self-help.' These books are filled with advice, deeply rooted in history, and firmly guided by standards of morality. Their overwhelming popularity is evidence that they reached an audience far beyond the ruling elite. Any literate person with enough disposable income to purchase such a book would have access to advice meant for princes. The sentiment is thoroughly populist. As we reflect on social conditions of the past, these courtesy books provide at least two important avenues to explore. Firstly, the actual content gives concrete information about social norms and ideals. Secondly, the rippling effects of the publication of these works, their popularity, and the dissemination and adoption of their content into the c … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Richarde Iugge, 1577.. Title-leaf, [8],466,[6] leaves, with numerous misnumberings. Historiated initials. Small, thick quarto. Modern crushed red morocco by Pratt, boards paneled and gilt, spine gilt with raised bands, a.e.g. Lightly washed, and very clean internally. A beautiful copy. One of the first English language versions of some of the most important early New World narratives. Eden first published his translations, primarily drawn from Peter Martyr and Francisco Oviedo, in 1555. The present book is not a second edition of that work but an entirely new one, edited by Richard Willes. While it also draws its main text from those two great Spanish chroniclers, a number of additions are present in this volume which did not appear in the 1555 version, and obsolete material is omitted (see Church for a list of additions and deletions from the 1555 edition). The main interest of Willes as editor was in the East, and this has been called "the first comprehensive account of Asia to be published in England," according to E.G.R. Taylor. Additions include an account of Frobisher's explorations in search of a northeast passage, the best 16th-century report on China in English, and the first account of Japan in English. Also included is the first English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous travels to Arabia, Persia, India, and possibly the Spice Islands in 1502-7. Varthema, an Italian, learned Arabic, acknowledged Islam, travelled to Mecca, and was one of the first Europeans to report extensively on the East.

Pesaro: H. Concordia, 1577. First edition of a scarce and important book. "From the time of its publication in 1577 Guidobaldo's Liber Mechanicorum was indeed recognized as the most authoritative treatise on statics to emerge since antiquity, and it remained pre-eminent until the appearance of Galileo's Two New Sciences in 1638. It marks the high point of the Archimedean revival of the Renaissance. Not only did Guidobaldo establish statics on the rigorous mathematical procedures of Archimedes, but he also introduced an historiography of mechanics which was designed to legitimise the Archimedean revival."-Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 222. Most of the present work is concerned with the theoretical discussion of machines and the introduction contains an historical essay on the engines used by the ancients. Monte (1545-1607), was Galileo's patron and friend for twenty years and was possibly the greatest single influence on the mechanics of Galileo.
