Benzoni, Girolamo:
Geneva: Eustatium Vignon, 1578.. [32],480,[12]pp. 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 - … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small quarto. 19th-century black morocco, gilt, spine gilt extra, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Extremities rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Foredge of titlepage neatly remargined. Very good. The first English edition of one of the most important early chronicles of the Spanish conquest of the New World, and one of the two chief accounts of Cortés' conquest of Mexico, the other being provided by Bernal Diaz. It is one of a handful of English language publications about the New World to appear in the 16th century, and an attractively printed work, with several large woodcut initials. Lopez de Gomara was Cortes' secretary for a number of years, and made use of his unparalleled opportunity to gather information from the primary source relating to the extraordinary exploits surrounding the overthrow of the Aztec empire. "Contains the first printed accounts of the Cortes expeditions to California, the expeditions of Francisco Ulloa, Marcos de Niza, Coronado, the subsidiary expeditions resulting from the last, and the voyage of Cabrillo" - Wagner. The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. The English translation was prepared by Thomas Nicholas, who abridged the original. A vital Elizabethan Americanum. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 578/41. WAGNER SPANISH SOUTHWEST, 2pp. SABIN 27751. CHURCH 123.

Staphylus, Friedrich.
Ingolstadt, In der Weyssenhornischen Truckerey durch Wolffgang Eder, 1578. - Der evang., dann kath. Theologe Friedrich Staphylus (eig. Stapelage; 1512-64) studierte Theologie in Padua und Wittenberg, wo er 1541 den Grad eines Magister artium erwarb, und erhielt 1546 auf Empfehlung Melanchthons eine Theologieprofessur in Königsberg, die er 1548 nach einer Fehde mit dem Humanisten Gulielmus Gnapheus niederlegte. Staphylus blieb weiterhin Rat des Herzogs, ging jedoch nach vergeblichem Kampf gegen Andreas Osiander 1551 nach Danzig. Er übersiedelte nach Breslau, konvertierte 1552 zur kath. Kirche und gründete eine kath. Schule sowie eine Druckerei in Neisse. Seit 1554 war Staphylus Rat Kaiser Ferdinands I., nahm 1557 am Wormser Religionsgespräch teil und veröffentlichte anschließend seine „Theologia M. Lutheri trimembris epitome" (1558), die viele Gegenschriften hervorrief. 1558 wurde Staphylus von Herzog Albrecht V. von Bayern zu seinem Rat ernannt, 1559 auf dem Augsburger Reichstag zum Dr. theol. et jur. can. promoviert. Seit 1560 lehrte er als Prof. der Theologie in Ingolstadt. - Ad 1) Dritte Ausgabe, gegen den Göppinger Superindendenten Jakob Andreä gerichtet. - Ad 2) Zweite Ausgabe, erstmals 1565 posthum erschienen.

Ilustrado con 49 xilografías con plantas raras a toda página incluyendo el retrato del autor y 72 con bellas capitulares. La última parte es un TRACTADO DEL ELEPHANTE Y DE SUS CALIDADES y esta ilustrado con unas xilografías de este animal. Enc. en pasta española del siglo XIX. 19x14. Por Martín de Victoria, impressor de su Magestad. Burgos, 1578. Este libro dio a conocer en Europa las plantas asiáticas más importantes desde el punto de vista medicinal y de su utilización como especias, entre ellas, la canela, la pimienta, el clavo de olor, la nuez moscada, el tamarindo, el ruibarbo, el jengibre, etc. Durante muchos siglos, los europeos habían consumido sus productos, que llegaban desde Oriente a través de la famosa "ruta de las especias" o "de la seda", pero ignoraban las plantas de los que procedían. Cristóbal Acosta realizó largos viajes por el Asia oriental, en curso de los cuales "las vio ocularmente", las estudió y las "dibujó al vivo". A su regreso a España, expuso en esta obra los resultados de su trabajo, ofr eciendo casi medio centenar de grabados de sorprendente exactitud, que fueron las primeras imágenes impresas sobre el tema. Como apéndice, la obra contiene un Tractado del elephante, que también es el primer estudio monográfico publicado acerca de este animal, con dos grabados que terminaron con las fantásticas representaciones del mismo circulantes hasta entonces en Europa.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Richard Tottell] [colophon:] ¶ Imprinted at London in Fleetestreete within Temple Barre at the signe of the Hand and Starre by Rychard Tottyl. the xv. of October. 1578., 1578. Book. Very Good. Leather. 1st Edition. Description: Sm. 8vo (5¾ × 4 in): t-p., 116, [3] leaves. Early calf, embossed medallions to top and bottom covers. · Register: 8º: A-P^8 (E2 signed "E1"). · Condition: Rubbed at edges; no front free end-paper; signature on title obliterated; worm trail in lower shoulder starting at f. 82, just affecting a few letters in a few of the catch phrases in the margin; paper clean and bright. · Comments: The regular printed series of yearbooks petered out in the reign of Henry VIII. However, Robert Brooke included in his Abridgment (printed 1573) many cases from the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI and Mary, either from his personal observation or from manuscript reports. To make those reports conveniently available, Bellewe culled these cases from the Abridgment, where they were scattered under many headings, and arranged them by regnal year. Bellewe also included at the end of the collection cases from readings in the Inns of Court, as well as other cases not in print and rules of pleading. There are two variant issues of this first edition; in one (STC 3821), the first word of the title is spelled "ASCVN"; the other (offered here) is "ASCVNS". · References: Beale R479; STC 3821.5; Cowley 72..

- Par Benoist Rigaud, à Lyon 1578, In 16 (7,5x11,5cm), (1) 221ff. (2), relié. - Nouvelle édition. Rare. La plus ancienne édition trouvée dans les bibliothèques est celle de 1568, détenue par la British Library. Page de titre à encadrement gravé. Brunet III, 207. Reliure en plein veau granité XVIIIe. Dos lisse à la Grotesque. L'oeuvre est une adaptation romanesque des Sept sages de Rome. La mention de traduction italienne réfère à La compassionevoli avvenimenti d'Erasto (1542), imitation narrative ; de nombreux pays européens donnèrent eux-mêmes une version comme l'Espagne et l'Angleterre. L'histoire des Sept sages est de tradition orale, Son origine est complexe, et certains parlent d'une origine arabe dont le livre de Sinbad serait le modèle ; l'occident connut cette histoire par le texte latin écrit au commencement du XIIe par Dam Jehans. Le fils de l'empereur Dioclétien est appelé, après avoir été enseigné par sept sages, au chevet de son père mourant. Sa belle mère, la reine, en tombe amoureuse et l'accuse de viol. Condamné à mort, les sept sages racontent chacun une histoire au roi qui sursoit l'exécution d'un jour. La reine sera en définitive condamnée à mort.

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.
