      Geneva, 1578. Later limp vellum, later ink title on spine, marbled foredges. Covers slightly bowed. Unobtrusive contemporary ink signature on titlepage, very occasional contemporary manuscript annotations, trimmed closely at top margin, not affecting text, moderate tanning. A good copy. First Latin edition of Benzoni's important early account of the New World, translated from the first edition printed in Italian in 1565. Benzoni's history is the first significant work on the Americas based on firsthand observations by a non-Spaniard, and was one of the most widely disseminated texts of its day. This edition also includes the Latin translation of Nicolas Le Chailleux's DISCOURS DE L'HISTOIRE DE LA FLORIDE, first published in Dieppe in 1565, an account of the French expedition to Florida in the mid-16th century. Born in Milan, Benzoni spent fourteen years travelling through the Americas, beginning in 1541. He was familiar with the Antilles, Guatemala, and the west coast of South America, and provides descriptions of these regions, as well as a history of the New World from the arrival of Columbus to the conquest of Peru. The work is also notable for containing an early account of the use of tobacco. Engaged in commerce, Benzoni quickly developed an intense enmity for the Spanish and their administration, and he treats them quite unfavorably in his text. He denounces the Spanish for their treatment of the Indians - in contrast, a good portion of the text describes Indian life before it became corrupted by European contact - and the author is also critical of the Spanish for their importation of slaves to America. "[The work] contains interesting details about the countries he visited, but abounds in errors and often in intentional misstatements. What Benzoni states about the Antilles is a clumsy rehash of Las Casas. His reports on the conquests of Mexico and Peru bristle with errors" - CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA. Despite these inaccuracies, the wide distribution of his book made Benzoni the single most influential figure in describing the New World to Europe in the mid-16th century. His work went through many printings, though Arents notes that "it appears never to have been permitted to circulate in Spain." Its final and perhaps most influential version was as parts IV-VI of De Bry's GRAND VOYAGES, where its anti-Spanish slant helped to advance the "Black Legend" of Spanish depravity in the New World. One of the two Geneva issues of 1578, presumably this has precedence as it was issued without the errata leaf and has not been corrected. Although this issue is not mentioned in EUROPEAN AMERICANA, Sabin, or Servies, the JCB catalogue describes a second copy, uncorrected, "with 'Genevae' on title, lacking the leaf of corrections....

Dutch translation of 'A relation of a journey' by George Sandys (1578-1644), one of the most famous travel books of the seventeenth century. Sandys travelled to the Levant in 1610 and spent a year in Turkey, Palestine and Egypt before returng to England to become a bishop. His observations first appeared in 1615 and his text was soon regarded as a special authority on the Levant. Between 1616 en 1673 another 6 English edition appeared. In 1653 the first edition of the Dutch translation was published in Amsterdam by Jacob Benjamin. The translation (by ‘J.G.’ ) has in the past erroneously been attributed to J. Glazemaker, but it was in fact made by the mennonite Amsterdam pharmacist Johannes Grindal (1616-1696), who translated more than 20 English books into Dutch. A second edition appeared in Utrecht by Lambert Roeck in 1654. The present copy belongs to the third and final edition, published by the Amsterdam bookseller Baltes Boekholt in 1665 (printed by Paulus Warnaer). B0113

        Torneo fatto sotto il Castello d'Argio Da' SS Cavalieri Bolognesi il di IX. Febraio 1578

      Per Giovanni Rossi, Bologna 1578 - AN ACCOUNT OF A CHIVALRIC TOURNAMENT FIRST EDITION. 4to. pp. 112. Roman and Italic letter within printed line border, title with woodcut ornaments, woodcut historiated initials, discreet restoration at blank upper margin of title and gutter of last leaf, very light age yellowing in places. A very good copy in eighteenth century rose and gilt embossed paper boards, later eps. Rare first edition of this fascinating description of a chivalric 'tournament' held in Bologna for the carnival of 1578, containing descriptions of the various scenes enacted for the occasion, including the names of the participants and details of the poems and songs recited. It is a blow by blow account with speeches, poems and songs reported verbatim. The local participants are identified by the stylised names of chivalric romance, 'gli Cavalieri Ardenti, Fideli, placito' and the rest by place of origin eg "Cavaliero di Scotia, Cavalieri Portoghesi". The 'knight of Scotland' speech is of particular interest as he may be identified with the semi-mythical James Crichton better known as "The Admirable Crichton" who arrived in Italy at around this time having served in the French army. In his speech the 'Scottish Knight' makes many references to Merlin and to the 'Great Queen of Scotland' and his adventures and travels in France. The show was staged in the Piazza delle Scuole (now the Piazza Galvani) on a gigantic platform, which was built up above the heads of the surrounding onlookers. This was the second and last tournament organized by the Accademia della Viola, initially founded in 1561 as the Academy dei Desti, by Ettore Ghisileri, Legnani Vincent and others, with the intention of reviving the ancient traditions of the knightly orders of Europe. The present account was compiled by Pompeo Vizani (1540-1607), also a member of the Academy of Viola, who signed the work under the pseudonym Antenor Garisendi. Vizani, a descendant of an important aristocratic Bolognese family, also helped organize the spectacle. At the end of the volume he recalls, not without some pride, that. "questi signori Cavalieri per motivo proprio, et senza altra occasione, che del Carnovale, fanno quello, che a' pena fanno altre Citta' a' contemplazione, et con l'aiuto de' loro Principi, et con grandissime occasioni". A most interesting insight, and first hand account, of popular chivalric entertainment in late Renaissance Italy. This first edition is rare with few copies in libraries outside Italy; we have been able to locate only three copies in the US. Not in BM STC It. C16th or Adams Graesse or Brunet. Edit 16, CNC 20438.

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]

        Nizoliodidascalus, sive, monitor Ciceronianorum Nizolianorum

      Henri Estienne, Geneva 1578 - "FROM THE LIBRARY OF LOUIS IV'S FIRST MINISTER FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. (viii), 200. Roman letter, some Greek, Estienne's 'Noli Altum Sapere' woodcut device on title, small woodcut initials and headpieces, 'bibliotheca Colbertina' in C17 French hand at head of title, Antoine Buade's armorial bookplate on pastedown (Guigard II p. 101), C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on fly, Shirburn Castle blind stamp to head of first three leaves, a few early marginal annotations in Greek with underlinings. A very good, clean, well margined copy in contemporary limp vellum with yapp edges, lacking ties. First edition of Henry Estienne's erudite attack on Mario Nizzoli's popular 'Thesaurus Ciceronianus' and all such 'Ciceroniana', the last in a trilogy of works on the subject, starting with 'De Latinitate falso suspecta' (1576) and his 'Pseudo-Cicero' (1577). It had become fashionable in the sixteenth century to imitate the style and phraseology of Cicero, which Estienne agreed was fine to up a point, as long as it was practiced with discernment. In order to imitate Cicero correctly you had to know his work well which involved considerable labour, until Mario Nizzoli came to the rescue with his Thesaurus, providing easy access to Cicero's works which were deconstructed and arranged alphabetically. Although the work itself was judiciously constructed it lead to a plethora of bad imitations of Cicero, to the point that all Latin not sufficiently Ciceronian was looked down upon. Henri Estienne was critical of these excesses and pointed out the idiocy of slavishly following Cicero to the exclusion of all other great Roman writers. "Il s'attache à faire voir le ridicule de ces intolérants singes de Cicéron, qui non contents de ne l'étudier que dans un dictionnaire, se privent volontairement des enseignements précieux qu'offrent les autres grands écrivains de l'antique Rome." Renouard p. 413. The work is dedicated to Henri's friend Hubert Languet, renowned for his strong political opinions, notably in his 'Vindiciae contra Tyrannos' published by Henri Estienne and translated into French by Francois Estienne. A very good, totally unsophisticated copy with tremendous provenance. From the library of Antoine Buade, Comte de Paluau, whose small but important library "formé avec gout" (Guigard II p. 101) was sold in 1633, thence to the immense library of Jean-Baptiste Colbert. The library of Colbert grew with the man himself. Born in 1619, from 1645 to 1651 he was assistant to Michel Le Tellier, secretary for the army, from 1651 to 1661 he served as financial intendant for Cardinal Mazarin, and from 1661 to 1683 he was first minister for Louis XIV, one of the most influential men in C17 France. Colbert appointed the mathematician and scholar Pierre Carcavi to oversee his library, and in 1667 when Carcavi became a keeper for the Royal Library, Etienne Baluze succeeded him. Under Baluze the library grew enormously. When Colbert died in 1683 his library contained 23,000 books and 5,212 manuscripts. It passed to his son, the marquis de Seignelay, and Baluze continued to be its librarian until 1700. It was sold in 1728, most of his manuscripts were purchased by the King, while his printed editions were sold at auction all over Europe. This then passed, with many of Colbert's books, to the extraordinary library of the Earls of Macclesfield. Not in BM STC Fr. C16. Renouard p. 446 no. 2. Adams 1781.

        Nova Totius Galliæ Descriptio. Carta Galicana.

      1578 - Antwerp, 1578, First Edition. 350 x 505mm. Lower centerfold reinforced , otherwise a very fine example. An uncommon map of France, engraved by brothers Lucas and Jan van Doeticum and published in the first edition of de Jode's 'Speculum Orbis Terrarum'. Despite being a map of France it shows the Low Countries, Switzerland and Germany east to the Rhine, Savoy and northern Italy with the course of the Po river. It is believed that de Jode had his maps ready for publication in the early 1570s but could not get a license, apparently because of interference by Ortelius, who wanted to protect his own 10-year privilege for the 'Theatrum'. By the time that expired in 1579 it was to late for De Jode to compete with Ortelius: his 'Speculum' sold poorly, as did the second, expanded edition of 1593, published by Gerard's widow and sons. After 1600 the plates were bought by Jan Baptiste Vrients, who also acquired the Ortelius rights; De Jode's maps were never printed again. Thus all editions of the De Jode maps are scarce.

        Synonymia Geographica, Sive Popularum, Regionum, Insularum

      Antwerp: Plantin, 1578. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. [23 x 16.5 cm], (4) ff., 417, (1) pp., (1) f. Bound in contemporary vellum over flexible boards, head slightly chipped; early signature on t-p. Woodcut 'golden compass' device of the Plantin press on title. Generally good. First edition of this early modern geographical dictionary, published alongside the first Plantin edition of Ortelius' successful Theatrum orbis terrarum (Antwerp 1579), and listing thousands of names, both ancient and modern, for "peoples, regions, islands, great and small towns, mountains, foothills, forests, seas, bays, lakes" etc. depicted in the atlas. Earlier versions of the Synonymia had previously appeared as indices to the atlas, containing a little over 2,000 entries; "in all, this first version of Ortelius' geographical dictionary in the form of a separate book includes approximately 10,000 entries" (Meurer). Ortelius' methodology in the present volume differs from that of his earlier indices: a parallel glossary of non-Latin names has been turned into a bilingual appendix, and Ortelius relies almost completely on classical authors, quoting moderns only when he cannot go straight to the source. The significance of these alterations, for the author's role not as mapmaker but as linguist and lexicographer, is hard to overstate: his introduction declares that he undertook the new Synonymia largely out of frustration at the scholarly inadequacy of current Latin lexica (including earlier editions of his own), which frequently printed inexact or even nonexistent terms, sometimes on dodgy authority. * Voet 1835; Skelton, Theatrum orbis terrarum facsimile, 1964; Meurer (in Abraham Ortelius and the First Atlas, ed. Voet), pp. 331-346.

Der Titel in einem Holzschnittrahmen, der Kolophon halb abgerissen. Titelblatt mit Einriß. Auf dem vorderen fliegenden Vorsatz recto ein älterer handschriftlicher Eintrag: "Dr. Rittner. Nr 4." Insgesamt etwas wasserranding, stellenweise leicht gebräunt, verknickt und/ oder eingerissen. Die Holzschnitte von Muller (tätig 1564 - 1572) etwas flau. "[Plantin] employed the woodcutters, Gerard Jansen van Kampen, Cornelis Muller and Arnold Nicolai, to produce the blocks with the illustrations." Arnoud S. Q. Visser in "Joannes Sambucus And The Learned Image" (2005). Textlich übrigens die Grundlage für Montaigne, der allerdings die Ausgabe von 1570 benutzte und heftig annotierte. Zum Einband: Neben der Jael auf beiden Deckeln ein aus "Kandelabern" gebildeter Rahmen, darüber und darunter werden die genannten Monogramme, bzw. Jahreszahlen jeweils von Stempeln mit Sonnenmotiv eingerahmt und in der Mitte von einem Blatt-Stempel akzentuiert. "Jael wird als die "Frau des Keniters Heber" (Ri 5,24) vorgestellt. Ihr gelingt es, den Kanaanäer Sisera mit einer List zu töten und so wesentlich zum Sieg israelitischer Stämme über Kanaan beizutragen. Sie nahm Sisera auf dessen Flucht in ihr Zelt auf, reichte ihm Milch und Sahne und tötete ihn, indem sie einen Zeltpflock durch seine Schläfe bohrte (Ri 5,24-27). Ob Jael in dieser Szene zugleich als verführerische Frau und tötender Mann vorgestellt werden soll (so B. Lindars 1995), ist fraglich. Sie steht eher im Kontrast zur Schilderung von Siseras Mutter, die zur Untätigkeit gezwungen ist und verzweifelt auf die Rückkehr ihres Sohnes wartet (Ri 5,28-30). Auf jeden Fall zählt die Szene zum festen Bestandteil der Schilderung der Deboraschlacht. Vielleicht war es ein Freundschaftsvertrag zwischen Kenitern und Israeliten, der Jael dazu veranlasste, Sisera als Feind des Bundespartners zu töten (Ri 4,17b). Die Tötung mit einem Zeltpflock hat Jael in Israel berühmt gemacht, weshalb sie gerühmt werden soll. Im Deboralied wird sie deshalb ausdrücklich als "Gesegnete" tituliert (Ri 5,24).

Il Peplus comprende quattro libri e procede in ordine cronologico. Il libro I si apre con Dante; il IV si conclude con Giovanni Carga. Benché l'opera contenga personalità  distintesi nelle più diverse discipline, gli uomini di lettere e i loro protettori la fanno da padrone: il libro I, ad esempio, oltre a Dante, presenta infatti tra gli altri Petrarca, Boccaccio, Valla, Platina, Poliziano, Landino, ma anche Lorenzo e Giovanni de' Medici; nel libro II figurano vicini Aldo Manuzio e Alberto Pio. Delle duecento biografie complessive, quelle di autori cinquecenteschi sono le più numerose. Due sole le donne: Vittoria Colonna e Veronica Gambara. Ogni voce comprende un epigramma e un breve testo in prosa che descrive brevemente i meriti della persona citata. Enfin, le dernier volume publié par Toscano sera un petit livre de renseignements bio-bibliographiques (en vers et prose), sur les auteurs savants de l'Italie - son Peplus Italiae de 1578, publié, encore une fois chez Fédéric Morel à  Paris et encore une fois sous l'égide de Dorat et de son approbation liminaire, mais dédié cette fois-ci, d'après ce qu'on lit sur la page de titre, au nouveau comte-évêque de Cahors lui-même, Antoine d'Ebrard, fils du grand diplomate de Catherine de Médicis, Jean d'Ebrard, baron de St-Sulpice en Quercy. Le jeune évêque était aussi le neveu de Christofle d'Ebrard de St-Sulpice - abbé commendataire de l'abbaye bénédictine de Marcilhac-sur-Célé, grand archidiacre de l'église cathédrale de Cahors et chancelier de l'université de Cahors -, pour qui Toscano composa une langue description poétique d'une grotte, ou crypte merveilleuse de Marcilhac-sur-Célé (Cryptae Massiliacensis Topographia) - très bel exemple de l'ekphrasis - qui figure a la fin du Peplus Italiae (pp. 119-124)» (G.H. Tucker, Jean Dorat et Giovanni Matteo Toscano, lecteurs des Pytiques de Pindare en 1566: le double témoignage des ouvrages publiés (1575-1580) de Toscano et d'un livre annoté par lui (1564-1566-7), in: ''Jean Dorat poète de la Renaissance'', a cura di Ch. De Buzon e J.-E. Girot, Genève, 2007, p. 205).Giovanni Matteo Toscano nacque probabilmente a Roma, nonostante in un componimento che compare all'inizio del Peplus sia chiamato 'Gentilhomme Milanois'. Nulla si sa della sua vita: né quando lasciò l'Italia, né per quanto tempo visse a Parigi, dove tra il 1575 e il 1580 furono pubblicate tutte le sue opere. Come si apprende dai suoi scritti egli studiò a Roma, Milano e Bologna, e fu allievo di Pirro Ligorio, Bartolomeo Marliani, Aonio Paleario e Carlo Sigonio. A Parigi Toscano seguì le lezioni di Denis Lambin, forse da lui conosciuto precedentemente a Roma quando questi era in visita alla città  eterna al seguito del Cardinal de Tournon, e divenne amico di Jean Dorat. Divenuto un apprezzato poeta di corte, nel 1565 apparve a stampa la sua prima opera, un poema celebrativo in memoria di Adrien Turnèbe. Tutti gli altri suoi componimenti (Octo cantica sacra, i Poemata e una traduzione latina dei Salmi), nonché l'antologia poetica da lui curata Carmina illustrium poetarum italorum, furono pubblicati tra il '75 e l'80 (cf. S.P. Revard, Joannes Mattheus Toscanus and the limits of Italian Humanism, in: ''Confini dell'umanesimo letterario. Studi in onore di Francesco Tateo'', Roma, 2003, pp. 1165-1176).Bibliothèque Nationale Paris, FRBNF31482550; BMC, French Books, p. 423; G.H.

      Geneve, Henricus Stephanus (Henri Estienne), 1578.. Folio, circa 40 x 26 cm. Title with woodcut device, 4 (instead of 17) ff., 542 pp.; (without 4 ff.), 992 pp; 1 (of 4) ff., 416, 139 pp. Contemporary vellum with gilt covers, spine with two later labels. Adams P 1468; Schreiber 201. First complete edition of the works of Plato and the standard reference for quotations until today - the Estienne pagination is found in the margins of modern text editions. Greek and Latin parallel text throughout. The new Latin translations are by Jean de Serres, who is also the author of the three dedications, that are lacking in many copies for religious or political reasons (to to Queen Elizabeth, to Jacob VI of Scotland and to the Republic of Bern). The first volume is also lacking the preface by Henri Estienne, again because he was a protestant. This copy, as many others has obviously a catholic provenance where all protestant evidence was removed (first title with an inscription of a Jesuit College from 1669). The dialogues of Platos are though absolutely complete with the entire Greek and Latin text. - First title with small old inscripitons, endpapers with later armorial bookplate (around 1900: F. Sydney Parry). Minor browning, somewhat dusty, all three volumes with waterstain to upper white margin, not touching the text. All volumes rubbed and dusty, volumes 1 and 3 with cracked front hinges that are though solid, not loose. Altogether a very good copy with mostly clean text (apart from marginal staining). - Condition and lacking preliminary leaves strongly taken into account - the price for a nice copy with the dedications would by at least twice as high! - No shipping to Switzerland!.

        The Concordance, The First Alphabet.

      Christopher Barker 1578 - The Concordance;- 1578 The First Alphabet of directions to common places, containing all the Hebrew, Caldean, Greek and Latin. By Robert F. Herrey 1578 Two right profitable and fruitfull Concordances, The “First” Alphabet of directions to common places, containing all the Hebrewe, Caldean, Greeke and Latin words, and names scatteringly dispersed throughout the whole Bible, with their common places following every of them. And the “Second” comprehending all such other principall words and matters, as concerne the sense and meaning of the Scriptures, or direct unto any necessary and good instruction. Published in London : By Christopher Barker, printer to the Queenes most excellent Maiestie, [1578]   This 1st. edition was printed as a separate Book by Christopher Barker in 1578 with a forward by the Author Robert F. Herrey.;- With 92 Pages;- According to A Short-Title Catalogue of Books 1475-1640 by A.W. Pollard & G.R.Redgrave, The Concordance, Begins on A2 With the opening page “ The Preface to the Christian Reader, touching the two Alphabets ensuring”. The Date 1578 is on the second page;- above, “Thine in the Lord, Robert F. Herrey.” Robert F. Herrey's, concordance dated 1578 was bound with the Geneva Bible. The Herrey concordance sets forward three purposes. One purpose seems to set the prooftext goal of his and all later concordances: "I have likewise by themselves placed all, and as many proper and useful English words, as are contained in the same Bible, conducing to the finding out of the most fittest sentences, and best common places, tending to the proving or verifying of any article and doctrine, concerning our Christian faith and Religion, or belonging to any other godly or necessary instruction: so as if thou would understand what is to be learned in the Scriptures touching God or his power, his wisdom, or his love, his mercy, or his truth, his justice, his promises, his plagues, or his punishments" (emphasis mine). Herrey then appends a long list of who can benefit by understanding various doctrines and ideas. Then the Concordance started to be published by Christopher Barker and Family two years later, in all Geneva Bibles of 1580 to 1615. Re-bound in Burgundy red leather, in good collectable condition. The Concordances is Complete, Part One & Two. No other copies of the year of 1578 are held in C.O.P.A.C. or any other Institutional Libraries in the World, so this is the only true 1st. Edition Copy found. Later editions 1580 or later are in some Libraries. The  Imprinted at London : by the Christopher Barker, Printer to the Queenes most excellent Maiestie. Christopher Barker Printer’s device to the final page. The Barker Family printer most of the English Bibles. Christopher Barker the father of a printing dynasty. A concordance is an index. The idea is simple. Look up a word in the index and see a list of pages where the word occurs in the book. In the Bible concordance the list is of chapters and verses rather than pages. For example, look up "begat" in a Concordance of the Authorised or King James Version of the Bible and find that "begat" is listed 228 times in 142 verses if the three citations in the Apocrypha are included. There is a lot of begatting (begetting) in the Good Book. The fascinating fact that people get themselves begat 228 times in the Bible is only slightly less impressive than the fact that John Marbeck compiled the first English concordance of the entire Bible over four centuries ago. His work on the concordance got him accused of heresy. This makes the first English list of biblical begats about four hundred years old. His first concordance was destroyed by fire coincidentally with his sentence to die at the stake for heresy so, after his release from a death sentence and pardon, he hit the books again and got the abbreviated version published in 1550. Although Cruden's Preface is a good short history of the Bible Concordance, perhaps the most popular early concord [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
