SOPHOCLES.
Anteverpiae. Ex officina Christophoi Plantini Architypographi Regii 1579 - Small 8vo, 116 x 76 mms., pp. [vi], 431 [432 - 4445 continuation of Canter's notes, 446 colophon dated 1580], three initial blanks before title, the recto and verso of the leaf before the title-page with notes in an 18th century hand, and the ownership inscription, "C. H. Van Heimenberg/ 1737" on the top margin of the verso, contemporary vellum, with yapp edges; single small worm hole running through the extreme gutter margin of most leaves (barely visible, and well away from the text), binding a little age-soiled, and at some stage, pastedowns seem to have been lifted and a previous owner has neatly excised most of each of them, to reveal the structure of the binding beneath, including a small stub of vellum manuscript. The classical scholar Willem Canter (1542 - 1575) prepared this text while living in Louvain. Sandys claims that his classical scholarship "opens a new era as an editor of The Tragic Poets of Greece. His edition of Sophocles (1579).remained in use for more than two centuries" (History of Classical Scholarship, II, 216 - 216). The modern editions of Sophocles by R. D. Dawe use some of Canter's conjectures. In his earlier edition of the texts of Euripedes, Canter established the way in which the choral odes were enumerated by the terms "Stophe" and "Antistrophe," and he follows the same procedure here and in his edition of Aeschylus.

Abraham ORTELIUS (1528 - 1598)
Questo esemplare, fonte di ispirazione per De Bry, Quad e Hondius, ha costituito il principale modello per la rappresentazione di questa regione per tutta una generazione. Sebbene Herrera (Cosmografo Reale Spagnolo) e Wytfliet iniziassero al loro produzione cartografica ben 20 anni dopo Ortelius, tuttavia la loro opera fu nettamente inferiore. Entrambi i cartigli inseriti della mappa sono copie dei disegni di Hans Vredeman de Vries, pubblicati per essere utilizzati dai cartografi, che realizzavano i disegni sul rame in modo che, una volta stampati, fossero lo specchio dell?originale. La mappa mostra l'area che, approssimativamente, corrisponde ai moderni stati messicani del Michoacan, Jalisco, Mayarit, e Guerrero, nonché la Valle dei Messico. Edizione spagnola del 1608. Incisione in rame con splendida coloritura coeva, in ottime condizioni. Bibliografia: Van den Broecke, Ortelius 13. Dimensioni 500x 340. Spanish edition of 1608. The map shows an area corresponding roughly to the modern Mexican states of Michoacan, Jalisco, Mayarit, and Guerrero, plus the Valley of Mexico. This was the standard map of the area for a generation, copied by De Bry, Quad and Hondius. Even though Herrera ( Spain 's Royal Cosmographer) and Wytfliet worked 20 years after Ortelius, they produced inferior maps of the area. Both cartouches in the map are copies of designs by Hans Vredeman de Vries. These were published for use by engravers, who would trace the patterns onto the copper plates, creating a mirror image of the original design when printed.

STAPLETON, Thomas (STAPLETONO, Thoma Anglo, S. Theologiae Doctore, & in Academia Duacena, Controversiarum Professore Regio et Ordinario)
Apud Michaelem Sonnium 1579 1 vol. in-folio (340 x 225) reliure plein cuir espagnole d'époque de style "plateresque", triple encadrement à motifs de petits portraits en médaillons estampé à froid sur plats, ais de bois, anciennes traces de fermoirs, Apud Michaelem Sonnium, via Iacobaea, sub Scuto Basiliensi, 1579, 16 ff. n. ch. (titre, privilège, préface et tables), 513 pp., [1] pp., 12 ff. n. ch. (index). Intéressant exemplaire de l'oeuvre du célèbre controversiste catholique anglais (1535-1598), dans une belle reliure espagnole contemporaine, tout à fait caractéristique du style "plateresco" (rel. frottée, 1 mors fendu, mais bien solide, bon intérieur, malgré qq. petites mouill. marginales et de rares piq. de vers). Après ses études à Cantorbéry et au séminaire de Winchester, l'avènement d'Elisabeth contraint Thomas Stapleton à la fuite en Belgique devant les persécutions anti-catholiques. Professeur d'Ecriture Sainte à Douai puis à Louvain, il mourut avant son élévation au cardinalat souhaitée par le Clément VIII. Döllinger estimait fort cet ouvrage, peut-être moins érudit mais plus profond que du "De controversis christianae Fidei" de Bellarmin. Libraire très instruit et renommé, chef d'une célèbre lignée d'imprimeurs, Michel Ier Sonnius avait repris la marque de Michel Fedanzar dont il avait racheté le fonds : la vipère de l'Ile de Malte s'attachant sans lui nuire aux doigts de saint Paul, avec la devise "Si Deus pro nobis, quis contra nos ?".

Jan MATAL o METELLUS (Poligny 1510 - 1597 ca.)
Carta geografica tratta dal rarissimo Itinerarium Europae Provinciae edito a Colonia tra il 1579 e il 1588. Conosciuto anche come Itinerarium Orbis Christiani, questo atlante fu pubblicato anonimamente a causa dei problemi politici e religiosi che caratterizzavano il periodo storico, come spesso succedeva aal'epoca per sfuggire alle persecuzioni cattoliche contro i protestanti. L'opera fa parte degli atlanti editi dalla cosidetta scuola Cartografica di Colonia, durata per circa mezzo secolo (1570-1620 ca.), e formata principalmente da rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi tra i quali spiccano lo stesso Matthaeus Quad e Frans Hogenberg, che ne fu il fondatore. Le mappe sono attribuite alcune a Jan Matal ed altre a Michael von Eitzing. Jan Matal o Metellus, francese di nascita ed attivo a Louvaine ed a Colonia, dove si rifugia prprio per sfuggire alle persecuzioni dei regnanti cattolici e dove muore nel 1597. Fu tra i maggiori cartografi del tempo e, insieme al Quad e al Hogenberg stesso, il principale esponente della scuola coloniese. Alcune delle mappe del Matal sono poi successivamente incluse nelle successive pubblicazioni postume, e recano il testo al verso. Dal punto di vista cartografico le mappe sono una derivazione e basate sulle carte pubblicate ad Anversa da Abraham Ortelius, per la prima volta nel 1570; le incisioni delle mappe sono invece attribuite a Frans Hogenberg. La grandissima rarità dell'opera, insieme alla scarsità di informazioni sulle opere "carbonare" edite a Colonia, contribuisce al fascino di questa importante mappa, caposaòdo di ogni collezione cartograf … [Click Below for Full Description]

ESTIENNE, C. & J. LIÉBAULT.
Strassburg, B. Jobin, 1579. Folio (302 x 200mm). pp. (12), 643, (1), (34), title with attractive woodcut border and text printed in red and black, 1 large woodcut portrait and 30 large woodcuts in the text. Contemporary calf, spine with 4 raised bands. Very scarce first German edition of this famous work on agriculture, gardening, cattle raising, as well as hunting and hawking. Chapters XLV, XLVI and XLVII concern falconry. The work was first published as 'Praedium rusticum' 1554 by Carolus Stephanus (French Charles Estienne). An amazingly popular French version 'L'agriculture et maison rustique' was first published in Paris 1564, translated by his son-in-law, Jean Liébault, it became a Renaissance bestseller with at least 80 editions by the fall of Napoleon. The work was translated into the English, German, Dutch, Italian and Scandinavian languages. It is a veritable encyclopedia of country living, with large sections on orchards and fruit. Charles Estienne belonged to the famous dynasty of Parisian printers, he was however a poor businessman and died imprisoned in 1561 at the Châtelet. "Dieser Übersetzung lag eine der Ausgaben von Charles Estienne et Jean Liébault, 'L'Agriculture et maison rustique' zugrunde, die bereits Jean de Clamorgans 'La chasse du loup' als Anhang hatte und zwischen 1567 und 1578 erschienen ist" (Lindner 563.01). The fine woodcuts are after Tobias Stimmer, J. Amman among others probably cut by the printer Bernard Jobin himself. The work consists of seven parts: 1. Von dem Feldbau und ordentlicher Anstellung einer Meyerey...; 2. Von Anstellung der Gä … [Click Below for Full Description]

RECORD, Robert. [RECORDE, DEE, John (Ed.)]
London: John Harison, 1579. A very rare and early edition of ‘the first commercial arithmetic of any note used in the English schools’ (Smith), by ‘the founder of the English school of mathematical writers’ (DSB). Only one other complete copy of this issue is known (see below). All sixteenth-century editions of this book are rare.<br/><br/>& & ‘Recorde is primarily remembered for his mathematical texts. His first publication was his most basic and popular, The Grounde of Artes (1543), an elementary introduction to arithmetic written in dialogue form. After several reissues, the book was enlarged in 1552 with a new dedication to Edward VI which draws on Recorde’s mint experience ... After Recorde’s death the Grounde was edited first by John Dee and then by a string of successors, passing through at least forty-five editions up to 1699 ... Recorde's works were intended as an accessible and readable introduction to mathematics, rather than a repository of elevated or novel results. His preferred dialogue form and choice of the vernacular were meant to render a previously forbidding subject familiar to all, especially those unskilful in Latin. His concern with pedagogical order and his own experience of teaching led him to emphasize the presentation of propositions over the proof of their validity; he believed that students could more readily grasp the subject if the exposition of results was separated from demonstration’ (ODNB). <br/><br/>& & “The first edition (1543) dealt only with whole numbers, covering the fundamental opera … [Click Below for Full Description]

Se divide en cinco libros: el primero es una descripción del cielo y del origen del mundo; el segundo versa sobre el zodíaco; el tercero sobre la elaboración del horóscopo; el cuarto analiza la influencia de los astros en los diferentes pueblos, y el último explica la influencia de los planetas según su posición. Esta edición es la primera edición crítica, publicada por Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609), destacado humanista conocido porque fue el primero en poner de relieve la importancia en la historia y el pensamiento antiguos de las civilizaciones persa, babilonia, egipcia y también la judía.

SCHOPPER, Hartman
Francof. ad Moenum [Frankfurt]: Nicolaus Bassaeus, 1579. 10/4/2009. Very Good. Third edition of the first Latin translation of *Reynard the Fox*, previously published in 1567 and 1574. 24mo. 496, [20]pp. 57 woodcuts by Jobst Amman. Utilitarian later (probably early 20th Century) cloth with morocco spine label gilt. Trimmed but with reasonable margins. A small worm hole on the first few leaves, a very good or better copy. The Reynard cycle of stories (satirical allegories rather than stories for children), in which the trickster fox outwits his enemies, often the greedy and dull-witted wolf, arose in the 10th and 11th Centuries and were popular throughout medieval Europe in several languages, most notably in the French versions. Several more modern translations derive from Schopper's Latin version.

Valverde de Hamusco, Juan de
Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 16 May 1579. (ANATOMY) 4to. With 42 full page engraved anatomical plates by Pieter and Franz Huys (re-engraved after Gaspar Vecerra's engravings for the 1556 Rome edition of Valverde), all but 15 after the woodcuts for Vesalius' FABRICA. Lacking leaf A1, engraved title page. A-V4 [-A1]. [3]-172, [2] ff. Contemporary vellum. Ink stamp of medical society of Sarthe (Fr.) in margin of a few leaves, foot of A2 torn away in margin. Wellcome 6481; Adams V235; Choulant-Frank, p. 206; Mortimer Italian 513 (1560 Venice edition) . Beautifully produced Plantin edition of this noted 16th century anatomical work, with the text of Vesalius's Epitome. Valverde (fl. 1560) was a Spanish physician who trained in Padua under Vesalius and Colomobo, and who first published his text in Spanish in 1556 with certain improvements to Vesalius, using for the most part the woodcuts for Vesalius (re-engraved by Beccara) as the basis for the illustrations. There were, however, 15 new cuts introduced, including the famous image of the flayed man holding aloft his own skin ("possibly suggested by Michelangelo}s flayed skin in the Sistine Chapel", according to Ruth Mortimer). Here Valverde's text is printed in Latin by the great Antwerp printer Christopher Plantin, whose press issued some of the greatest illustrated books of the 16th century, along with the EPITOME of Vesalius, with the plates magnificently re-engraved by the Flemish artists/engravers, Pieter and Franz Huys of Antwerp

London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1579. [viii], 424 ff. With dedication and table. Collates complete. Octavo (6" x 4"). Seventeenth-century calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and later lettering piece to spine, early hand-lettered title to fore-edge of text block. A few shallow scuffs to boards, some rubbing to extremities, front board beginning to separate, rear joint starting, some chipping to spine ends, corners bumped, pastedowns lacking, partial crack to text block between ff. 192 and 193. Light soiling to title page, toning to text. Annotations in neat early chancery hand to several leaves, later owner signature of William Jones to title page. An appealing copy. $1,500. * First edition. An important early work on writs, Theloall's Digest owes its origin to the suggestion of Staunford that it would be a good idea if lawyers would write treatises on the other titles of the abridgments similar to his study of the Title "Prerogative." Staunford illustrated his meaning by showing how the Title "Brief" might be treated. Theloall chose this title, and wrote a treatise on it for his own use. The manuscript, having been lent, eventually found its way to a printer. "It deserved to be printed, as it is the most orderly treatise on procedure, founded on the Year Books, that had yet appeared... Historically, it comes between the older commentaries upon writs and the modern books on procedure.": Holdswort … [Click Below for Full Description]
