STRADANUS, Johannes (Jan van der STRAET).
[1], 104 engraved ll.Rare complete set of Stradanus's magnificent series of 104 large hunting prints, including falconry, fishing and even bee-keeping, engraved in the years 1578 to ca. 1596 by Philips Galle and others associated with him. It includes scenes of catching birds of prey and of hunting with them, not only hawks or falcons, but also owls. The other hunting prints show the hunting of elephants, various wild cats, wild boars, bears, crocodiles and other big game, apes (putting on boots!), smaller animals such as rabbits, badgers and porcupines, but also unicorns, fauns (playing pan-pipes!), giant snakes, dragons, sea monsters and other mythical creatures. Some scenes are certainly disturbing for anyone who cares about animals: one shows a live elephant with its trunk cut off. The Belgian Johannes Stradanus "was employed by Duke Cosimo de' Medici in Florence, who commissioned him to make a number of designs for tapestries representing fowling, fishing and hunting scenes, for the adornment of twenty rooms in the Palace of Peggio-a-Cajano. The present set of 'Venationes' was engraved from these beautiful and original compositions" (Schwerdt).With a ca. 1900 armorial bookplate of C.M. Wakefield. With numerous mostly marginal tears (about 18 repaired with tape), a few running into the caption and about 5 into the print image, one leaf with browned margins and the last sheet cut down close to the plate at the head, fore-edge and foot, stitching holes from a previous binding in the gutter. Each leaf is a full sheet, but about 20 have been backed with half-sheets of 19th- … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE BAILLIF, Roch, sieur de la Rivière. d. 1598
Rennes: [J. du Clos] for P. Le Bret, 1578. Contemporary vellum (soiled and stained), later manuscript spine title, evidence of four pigskin ties, slightly overlapping edges, ruled in red. Only Antiquarian Edition: "The Demosterion provides the most extensive documentation of early French Paracelsianism" (Baudry, tr.). Half in French and half in Latin, its six parts present, in order, a short introduction to Paracelsian doctrine, a distillation of its principles into three hundred bilingual aphorisms, a work on divination, a dictionary of Paracelsian terms, a chiromantic essay and a balneological and mineralogical description of Brittany. Together, the texts address alchemy, geomancy, astrology, ethics, dietetics, physiology, pathology and cures for ulcers, leprosy, edema, plague, gout and paralysis.  Schematic, the first plate is dated 1 December 1578. It outlines the method for determining which remedy cures which ailment according to Paracelsian principles. The large woodcut of the second plate has seven rings that present the movement of the Moon through a sidereal month, that note enterprises and therapies favored on each day and indicate astrological influences and medical humors.  Enterprising, Le Baillif suffered prison time for currency counterfeiting and escaped assassination. He practiced and lectured in medicine in Paris, then was expelled, having crossed the University's medical faculty. He returned to Brittany, amassed a fortune treating local nobility and published a stream of popular Paracelsian books and pamphlets. In the late 17th century, he w … [Click Below for Full Description]

The newly discovered Silesian armorial manuscript by Johann Siebmacher - - Siebmacher, Johann
Wroclaw, 1578. Oblong-8vo [170 x 220 mm] 152 leaves with 2280 painted coat of arms over pre-printed stencils. Bound together with a handwritten register on 41 leaves. 18th century quarter vellum binding. --------------------------------------- The present armorial is the most extensive, and artistically most valuable surviving Silesian armorial from the 16th century. It was used as the direct model for the first printed Silesian armorial, the Scharffenberg'sche Wappenbuch, as well as for the the Silesian section in the first two volumes of Siebmacher's Wappenbuch. It is therefore the most important source for unadulterated Silesian coat of arms from the 16th century. ---------------------------------------------- We attribute the present manuscript to Johann Ambrosius Siebmacher (1561-1611), a German coat of arms painter, engraver and publisher. His major work is his extensive Wappenbuch, which is one of the most important sources of heraldry of the German speaking regions. Siebmacher himself edited only two volumes in 1605 and 1609 in Nuremberg. After his death in 1611, the work was continued by Paul Fürst, who had acquired Siebmacher's copperplates and published further volumes in 1656, 1657 and 1665. ----------------------------------------------------- Surprisingly, nothing is known about Siebmacher's apprenticeship and life in Nuremberg. This could be because he probably spent a long time abroad. The present manuscript demonstrates that Siebmacher had close ties to Wroclaw, and perhaps there he received his education as a heraldist, engraver and printer.

SUSAN, Issachar ben Mordecai ibn.
[in Hebrew:] Sefer Ibur shanim.Venice, Giovanni di Gara, [5]339 [= 1578/79]. Small 4to (19.5 x 15 cm). With the title set in an elaborate woodcut architectural arch and 6 round woodcut calendrical or astrological diagrams with text. Set entirely in Hebrew type, the main text in semi-cursive (rabbinical) and the headings in meruba, each of the two styles in at least 3 sizes. Contemporary limp sheepskin wrap-around cover with flap and fastened with strap. 136 ll., including the blank leaf [108]. Rare second (first authorized) edition, by far the best, of an extremely important work on Jewish calendrical calculations, also in relation to the liturgy, choice of readings, customs and dates for holidays. In addition to being a seminal work on the calendar and chronology, it records customs and liturgical practices (minhagim) of the ancient Jewish communities of Palestine (including even lore about the weather), whose traditions were already threatened and in many cases were soon to be lost as a result of the influx of Sephardic Jews after their expulsion from Spain in 1492 and Portugal in 1497. It also includes similar information about the communities in northern Africa, as well as astrological and astronomical information.Susan (ca. 1510?-1572) was a Maghribian (northwest African) Jew, probably born in Fez, in what is now Morocco. He moved to Jerusalem at an early age and studied with Levi ibn Habib, chief rabbi there from 1525, in the early years of the Ottoman control of Palestine. He studied further in Safed then briefly sought work in Thessaloniki in 1539, when he was alrea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rare early edition of a French translation of López de Gómara's chronicle, one of the most important historical works on the discovery of the New World, first published in Spanish in 1552: "of outstanding merit and exceptionally well informed" (Parry).López de Gómara (ca.1511-ca. 1566), historian at Seville, is particularly famous for his descriptions of Hernán Cortés. Although he visited the Americas only after Cortés's death, he had direct access to Cortés (as his chaplain) and other "conquistadores" on their return to Spain and related their stories. He also had access to many documents that have since disappeared.

LE BAILLIF, Roch, sieur de la Rivière. d. 1598
Rennes: [J. du Clos] for P. Le Bret, 1578. Contemporary vellum (soiled and stained), later manuscript spine title, evidence of four pigskin ties, slightly overlapping edges, ruled in red. Only Antiquarian Edition: "The Demosterion provides the most extensive documentation of early French Paracelsianism" (Baudry, tr.). Half in French and half in Latin, its six parts present, in order, a short introduction to Paracelsian doctrine, a distillation of its principles into three hundred bilingual aphorisms, a work on divination, a dictionary of Paracelsian terms, a chiromantic essay and a balneological and mineralogical description of Brittany. Together, the texts address alchemy, geomancy, astrology, ethics, dietetics, physiology, pathology and cures for ulcers, leprosy, edema, plague, gout and paralysis.  Schematic, the first plate is dated 1 December 1578. It outlines the method for determining which remedy cures which ailment according to Paracelsian principles. The large woodcut of the second plate has seven rings that present the movement of the Moon through a sidereal month, that note enterprises and therapies favored on each day and indicate astrological influences and medical humors.  Enterprising, Le Baillif suffered prison time for currency counterfeiting and escaped assassination. He practiced and lectured in medicine in Paris, then was expelled, having crossed the University's medical faculty. He returned to Brittany, amassed a fortune treating local nobility and published a stream of popular Paracelsian books and pamphlets. In the late 17th century, he was (and re … [Click Below for Full Description]

Collation: *^4 **^2 A-Q^4 R^2. 12mo. Full period style calf, covers with blind-ruled borders, red morocco spine label. Title trimmed with some loss to border, fore-edge margin of **1 and lower margin of A1 torn away and mended, with some loss to text, toned and stained throughout. First edition. Title-page with woodcut architectural border (McKerrow 161), woodcut initials. [vi], 66 ff. Collation: *^4 **^2 A-Q^4 R^2. 12mo. First edition of the Second Part. The first and only separate edition of the "Seconde Part" of this important Tudor sourcebook, being a continuation of John Higgins' "First Parte," published first in 1574, itself a prequel to William Baldwin's "Last Part," first published in 1559. Thus this edition fills the gap chronologically between the Higgins first part (which ends with the birth of Christ) and Baldwin's last part (which begins in the 14th century), and includes the stories of Guidericus, Carassus, Helena, Vortiger, Uther Pendragon, and others. The Higgins and Baldwin parts were published by Thomas Marshe, who was not involved in this printing. The Pforzheimer catalogue notes that this is the only work to bear Richard Webster's name in the imprint: "In this instance his role was that of publisher for the volume was printed by Dawson, possibly with the aid of his partner, Thomas Gardiner. There is reason, therefore, to doubt that Webster was a printer." Although not particularly … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venice, appresso Giovambattista Marchiò Sessa et fratelli, 1578. Folio (316 x 213 mm.), [28], 392 leaves. [i.e. 396, four leaves unnumbered between 163and 164], woodcut portrait of Dante within architectural oval frame on title-page andninety six woodcut illustrations in text, woodcut initials and ornaments, Sessa cat andmouse device at end. A few leaves slightly browned and foxed but a very good copy in contemporary Italian limp vellum, with Dante's name on spine.Beautifully-illustrated, much praised second folio impression by the Fratelli Sessa, edited by Francesco Sansovino. Together with the first of 1564 and the third of 1596, it is one of the three Edizioni del Gatto, from the cat used as printer's device, or Edizioni del Gran Naso, from the handsome woodcut portrait of Dante with his trademark nose.The 96 woodcuts portraying scenes from the poem were cut after those designed by Alessandro Vellutello for the Marcolini edition of 1544. Influential for artists as different as Federico Zuccaro and William Blake, the illustrations were inspired by illuminated medieval manuscript of the Commedia (Brunner, Illustrierung, 49). The text, adapted from the 1502 Aldine edition, is framed by an innovative double-column commentary which features, for the first time together, the glosses of Cristoforo Landino, first printed in 1481, and the more recent ones by Vellutello, of 1544. These were theoretically diverse, one following Aristotelianism and the other Neo-Platonism, as well as often in disagreement on the detailed interpretation of the theological narrative?e.g., Vellutello c … [Click Below for Full Description]
