        [Livres à Figures] Titi Livii Patavini, Romanae historiae principis, libri omnes, qvotqvot ad nostram aetatem peruenerunt

      Francforti ad moenum (francfort sur le main): apud Johannem and Sigismondum Feyerabendt, 1578. relié. in Folio (38x25cm). Première édition? Nos recherches ne nous ont permis de trouver qu’une réimpression de 1589. Par ailleurs, les catalogues consultés (France, Allemagne, Autriche, Angleterre, Harvard) ne font pas mention de cette edition ni d’une édition antérieure. Edition illustrée d’un titre frontispice et de 100 figures sur bois (10 x 15 cm) dans le goût de la renaissance maniériste, avec de nombreuses scènes de batailles et de meurtres. Certaines répétées plusieurs fois. Plein Vélin contemporain. Dos muet. Une mouillure centrale et marginale sur la preface, une signature ancienne sur la page blanche et en marge basse du frontispice : Taillandier. Une mouillure en milieu d’ouvrage dans les coins gauches et droites sur une centaine de pages. Certaines pages brunies. Sigismond Feyerabend fut un fameux éditeur et un graveur. Il est d’ailleurs possible que les gravures soient de sa main (bien que la manière semble italienne), un monogramme a été apposé sur certaines, un H, avec une queue partant de la barre droite de la letter, peut-être un C. Il fut l’éditeur et l’ami d’Erasme et sa contribution à l’édition de textes antiques en allemagne fut importante. Tite Live (-59 à 17 ap. J.C) naquit à Padoue et vécut à Rome, il croyait profondément à la grandeur de Rome et se distinguait comme un fervent patriote, des 142 livres de sa monumentale histoire de Rome, il ne nous reste que 35 livres. Bien qu’il fut critiqué comme historien quant à son exactitude (erreurs chronologiques…) il est considéré comme un des plus fiables historiens de l’antiquité. - apud Johannem and Sigismondum Feyerabendt, Francforti ad moenum (francfort sur le main) _1578, in Folio (38x25cm), (35) (1bc) 905pp. (1bc) (23)., Un Vol. relié. - Livres à Figures Un Vol. relié

        [Divina Commedia] Dante con l'espositioni di Christoforo Landino et d'Alessandro Vellvtello sopra la sua comedia dell' Inferno, del Purgatorio, & del Paradiso... con tavole argomenti, & allegorie, & riformato, riveduto, & ridotto alla sua vera lettura, per Francesco Sansovino, fiorentino

      Venice: Appresso Giovambattista, Marchiò Sessa, et fratelli, , 1578. Hard cover. Folio (32 cm); [28], 163, [4], 164-392 leaves. Woodcut portrait of Dante within elaborate frame on title page ("del gran naso"), and 96 woodcut illustrations in text (including twelve repetitions). Woodcut initials and head ornaments. Sessa cat-and-mouse device at colophon and in several headpieces. Bound in 19th-century (?) vellum over boards. Titled in ink on spine. Title page somewhat toned and mounted. All leaves guarded along fore-edge after GG5. Occasional foxing and browning; dampstains along outer margins resulting from guarding in latter half of text block, and more invasive dampstains in last five quires. Old ownership stamps on title page. References: Adams D-108; Mortimer 148 (1564 ed.); Iconografia Dantesca p.73; Gamba 390; Fiske Dante 9-10 and 584. Second of the esteemed "gran naso" editions (so-called for the proboscis evident in the title-page portrait vignette) published by the Sessa brothers first in 1564. The text was lightly revised by Francesco Sansovino from Aldine edition of 1502. Ludwig Volkmann, in Iconografia Dantesca, singles out the "gran naso" editions as the first "truly modern" 16th-century versions of Dante, displaying in their illustrations a sophisticated concept of the ancient world. "The poets wear togas and laurel crowns, Charon and Phlegias are modern demons, Cerebrus is a three-headed dog and not a devil, and so on…. These illustrations served as models for a long series of posterior editions."

Three separately published works bound in one. Attractive 18th century sprinkled calf, raised bands, spine panelled in gilt featuring large pomegranate centerpieces, red morocco label. Each title with woodcut initials (the third with woodcut headpieces and tailpiece); first two titles with many diagrammatic illustrations in the text; second title with three folding charts (two of them large); and first title with engraved illustrated title page, 12 engraved and 60 woodcut illustrations and diagrams in the text (some of these illustrations comprising rather attractive little scenes). Latter two titles printed in black letter. Front pastedown with armorial shelf label, and head of first title page with small embossed stamp, both of the Macclesfield library. Front endpaper with the titles of the three works written out in a neat 19th century hand. Verso of second title page with ink ownership inscription: "Weybread. John Flatman owneth this book," dated 1672. Foot of title page and prefatory leaf of third title with the ownership signature of Ra[lph] Dowcett. First work: Riccardi I, 211. Second work: Taylor 36 (citing earlier edition); STC 15417. Third work: STC 11123; Taylor 119; Sabin 2495. Head of spine a bit rubbed, a hint of wear elsewhere, but the binding completely sound and quite attractive, with very lustrous boards. First work: one opening of preface a little soiled; second work: text with a few trivial ink stains, folding charts with two minor tears and one early paper patch on blank verso; third work: one prefatory leaf with closed tear from head into several lines of text (old translucent paper repair on recto covering two Latin words and with letters in two dozen words slightly displaced), title page and last leaf a little soiled, corners of first few leaves lightly dampstained, most leaves trimmed close at head (parts of some headlines and woodcut decoration lost). In all other important respects, a really excellent copy internally, THE FIRST TWO WORKS QUITE BRIGHT AND FRESH and with very ample margins (the first work in extraordinarily fine condition). This is a very appealing and valuable collection of three rare early surveying books, comprising an important and handsomely printed Italian treatise from the 1620s and two English works that provide a good picture of the field of surveying as it was understood during the last two decades of the 16th century and the first decade of the 17th century in Britain. The work by Oddi, which takes its title from the measuring square ("Squadro"), shows the reader how to survey accurately fields that are anything but square, using a method based on equilateral triangles. The author also addresses the creation of house plans and the measuring of heights. A number of diagrams and mathematical tables, as well as charming surveying scenes, are included. Riccardi calls it a "rare and also valuable work by reason of the quality of the printing." Muzio Oddi (1569-1639) studied mathematics and drawing in his youth, but initially made the military his profession. He was an artillery officer in the service of Francesco Maria II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino, but was found guilty of revealing secrets of state to the duke's wife, Duchess Livia, and was imprisoned from 1600-09. Oddi spent this time profitably writing mathematical treatises, and he taught mathematics in Milan after his release. Leigh's treatise on land surveying, first published in 1562, also deals with the mathematics of surveying, the title page promising that his book will give directions for "the measurying of all kindes of landes, be it meadowe, pasture, errable, woode, hill, or dale." But Leigh cautions the reader that a good surveyor must record much more than dimensions. Rents must also be calculated, as well as all dues owed on the land. (Leigh's work has been printed here without gathering "H," but presumably this is as it should be, since our collation matches that of the University of Pennsylvania copy described in NUC, and the text does not seem to lack anything.) Valentine Leigh (d. 1563) wrote on diverse topics, including on "the most mightie Conqueror, Death." William Folkingham (fl. 1610), who also wrote treatises on shorthand and on achieving a long and healthy life, promises in his part of the present book the "materiall, mathematicall, mechanicall and legall parts" of surveying. But perhaps the most intriguing parts of his treatise have to do with various soil types and trees, for these sections make it clear that his book has been written at least partly with an audience of colonists in mind. He expects that the work will be useful not only for farmers in England, but "for all under-takers in the plantations of Ireland or Virginia." All three of these works are quite rare. NUC lists five copies of our first (and only) edition of Oddi's book, eight of our first printing of Folkingham's book, and just two of our edition of Leigh's book (as well as five of the 1577 printing--an earlier edition of 1562 is said once to have existed, but there seem to be no known copies today). Listings in ABPC verify these works' rarity: since 1975 (in addition to the present volume), just three copies of the first two printings of the Leigh work have appeared, along with three each of the Oddi and Folkingham books.

Den naturvetenskapligt intresserade Gustaf Fredrik Hjortberg (1724-76) är biograferad av Sten Lindroth, som i honom såg ett fint exempel på den upplyste prästen.

        "Universalis Tabula Iuxta Ptolemaeum"

      Contemporary outline-coloured engraving, 34,5x48cm Cologne 1578 "One of the most elegantly engraved of the Ptolemaic World maps..." (Shirley). The map was published in G. Mercator's revision of Ptolemy's "Geographia" 1578 and later and shows the traditional ancient World. It was printed as late as 1730, but after 1619 the border was extensively reworked and replaced by allegorical figures.. The margins partly shaved into the map line, laid down on good paper.

        "Septentrionalium Regionum Svetiæ, Gothiæ, Norvegiæ, Daniæ"

      Contemporary hand-coloured engraving, 37x49,5cm Antwerp (1578) - 1593 The map is also a work of art. The copper plate was elegantly engraved by the Van Doetecum brothers and is geographically based on Liévin Algoet's large woodcut map from 1562 (Ginsberg 21). De Jode's map publishing business was already from the start in the shadow of Ortelius, even though the quality of the maps is similar or sometimes even better than that of Ortelius. The business failed and only two editions (1578 "Speculum Orbis Terrarum"and 1593 "Speculum Orbis Terrae") were published. Maps of either edition are scarce and are desirable pieces for collectors.. Cropped into the grade scale, affecting some letters of the reverse text on the left hand side. The bottom scale with some small paper damages. Some small oxidizing cracks in the area of Poland. W.B. Ginsberg "Printed Maps of Scandinavia and the Arctic 1482 - 1601" Entry 28, fig. 28.2, Hoem no.15, Koeman Jod 2, Bramsen no.46)
