Jan MATAL o METELLUS (Poligny 1510 - 1597 ca.)
1579. 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 car … [Click Below for Full Description]

Francesco FERRETTI (1523 - 1593)
1579. Elegante piccola carta geografica dell'isola tratta dai 'Dialoghi Notturni del Capitano Francesco Ferretti Cavaglier di S. Stefano' edito ad Ancona da Giovan Battista Ciotti, nel 1604. Si tratta della seconda edizione del celebre isolario del Ferretti (per la prima volta edito nel 1579), che contiene 28 mappe di isole europee incise in rame, e rachiuse dentro una cornice ornamentale di forma rotonda, che conforisce alle carte un'inusuale e particolarissima forma. Questo raro trattato che fornisce nozioni scientifiche e militari, oltre che geografiche e matematiche. La parte geografica costituisce il corpus principale dell'opera, con le 28 mappe raffiguranti le principali isole del Mediterraneo rappresentate con l'inusuale forma circolare, finemente intagliate da Michelangelo Marelli. Le carte derivano da quelle intagliate da Girolamo Porro per l'Isolario di Porcacchi, edito per la prima volta nel 1572. Ogni carta è racchiusa entro una cornice ornamentale, e mostra le linee dei venti. Il titolo, racchiuso nella parte superiore, è molto grande ed è espresso con la formula Ragionevol' Forma et vera postura del' Isola di, seguito dal nome dell'isola. Le mappe sono di piccole dimensioni ma molto accurate. L'opera del Ferretti venne ristampata nel 1608 con il titolo di Arte Militare.

[KARASUMARU, Mitsuhiro, ed.?]
1579. 36 full-page woodcuts, each with an accompanying poem. 18 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. blue wrappers (rather worn & rubbed), early manuscript title label on upper cover "Shokuni kasen Mitsuhiro kyo sen" ["Immortal Artisan Poets selected by Lord Mitsuhiro"], new stitching. [Japan: mid-Edo]. In the late 9th century, a new kind of poetry competition was developed in Japan: the utaawase. Themes were determined, and a poet chosen from each team, the Left and the Right, wrote a waka (a poem) for each given theme. The host appointed a judge for each theme and gave points to the winning team. The team that received the largest number of points was the winner. At first, utaawase was simply a playful entertainment, but as the poetic tradition deepened and developed, it turned into a serious aesthetic contest, with considerably more formality. The tradition continued well into the 19th century. In the 18 competitions in the present work, the theme is various occupations. Many of the 18 competing pairs of are deliberately unlikely matches. But each pair of poems is related by clever plays on words, suggestions, or obscure connections, requiring an extremely refined intellect to find the connections. The 18 pairs of poems appear on verso and recto of each leaf with accompanying woodcuts. Some of the competitions are between a doctor and a sorcerer, a monk and a bookbinder (?), a carpenter and a blacksmith, a sword sharpener and a metallurgist, a nun and a blind musician, a dyer and an armorer, a lacquerware maker and a box maker, a gambler and a boatman, a needl … [Click Below for Full Description]

ex Off. Christ. Plantini, Antuerpiae, 1579. In folio (345x240 mm.), pp. (8), 802, (2), XXXV ("Leges novae Reip. Gen."); ottima legatura del tempo in piena perg. con tit. ms. al dorso in carattere gotico di grande modulo. Insegna tipogr. al tit., al verso del quale vi è la croce di san Giorgio in xilogr. (arma di Genova) in rosso. Prima edizione di questa importante storia annalistica genovese, oggi di difficile riperimento, riportata anche nelle svariate bibliografie sull'America in quanto comprensiva delle relazioni dei viaggi nel nuovo mondo. Una decina di anni dopo questa impressione, l'opera venne messa all'Indice e qualcuno ventilò trovarvisi "cento passi inquinati di Eresia", riconducendo la delazione al Foglietta, che stava proprio in quegli stessi anni concludendo la sua analoga e celeberrima opera annalistica.

BENZONI (Girolamo).
Genève, Eustache Vignon, 1579. Petit in-8 de (12) ff., 726-(7)-(3 bl.)-104 pp.; basane marbrée, dos à nerfs orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches rouges (reliure du XVIIIe siècle). Première édition française, traduite de l'italien par Urbain Chauveton. On ne connait de l'auteur que ce qu'il dit de lui-même dans son ouvrage: embarqué pour les Antilles en 1542 en quête d'aventures et de fortune, il passa quinze ans dans les territoires exploités par les Espagnols et fut témoin de leurs méthodes de conquête. Il visita les Antilles, le Guatemala, le Nicaragua, le Mexique, Panama, le Pérou et le Venezuela. Il revint en Europe en 1556 mais, après avoir perdu dans un naufrage les "quelques milliers de ducats" qu'il avait gagné, il ne lui resta que ses souvenirs. Son ouvrage, très critique vis à vis des Espagnols, fut très bien accueilli et rapidement traduit en plusieurs langues. Le traducteur ajouta au texte de Benzoni, un Brief discours et histoire d'un voyage de quelques François en la Floride, & du massacre autant injustement que barbarement executé sur eux par les Hespagnols, l'an 1565, rédigé par lui d'après le texte de Nicolas Le Challeux "Discours de l'histoire de la Floride contenant la cruauté des Espagnols contre les subjets du Roy en l'an mil cinq cens soixante cinq..., publié sans nom d'auteur en 1566. Bon exemplaire de cet ouvrage peu commun. Mouillure claire à quelques feuillets, petite galeire de vers aux premiers feuillets, petit accroc restauré à la page de titre.

Sehr schönes, sammelwürdiges Exemplar dieser sehr seltenen Ausgabe. Es handelt sich hier um ein sehr reich von einer Hand kommentiertes Exemplar.

[KARASUMARU, Mitsuhiro, ed.?]
1579. 36 full-page woodcuts, each with an accompanying poem. 18 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. blue wrappers (rather worn & rubbed), early manuscript title label on upper cover "Shokuni kasen Mitsuhiro kyo sen" ["Immortal Artisan Poets selected by Lord Mitsuhiro"], new stitching. [Japan: mid-Edo].In the late 9th century, a new kind of poetry competition was developed in Japan: the utaawase. Themes were determined, and a poet chosen from each team, the Left and the Right, wrote a waka (a poem) for each given theme. The host appointed a judge for each theme and gave points to the winning team. The team that received the largest number of points was the winner. At first, utaawase was simply a playful entertainment, but as the poetic tradition deepened and developed, it turned into a serious aesthetic contest, with considerably more formality. The tradition continued well into the 19th century.In the 18 competitions in the present work, the theme is various occupations. Many of the 18 competing pairs of are deliberately unlikely matches. But each pair of poems is related by clever plays on words, suggestions, or obscure connections, requiring an extremely refined intellect to find the connections. The 18 pairs of poems appear on verso and recto of each leaf with accompanying woodcuts.Some of the competitions are between a doctor and a sorcerer, a monk and a bookbinder (?), a carpenter and a blacksmith, a sword sharpener and a metallurgist, a nun and a blind musician, a dyer and an armorer, a lacquerware maker and a box maker, a gambler and a boatman, a needle maker and a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gerard DE JODE (1509-1591).
[Antwerp, circa ], 1579. Copper engraved map sheet with full contemporary colour and silver highlights, with no text on verso, recently remounted upon a larger sheet of paper with added French lines in gilt and blue (Very Good, excellent original colour, map trimmed to neatline as it was once bound in a contemporary atlas factice), map proper: 35 x 49 cm (13.8 x 19.3 inches). FRANCE: Nova Totius Galliae Descriptio. A stunning example of a separately issued de Jode map of France was coloured in the late 16th century in the style of the frescoes of the Gallery of Maps in Vatican. Author: Gerard DE JODE (1509-1591). This is a beautiful example of a great classic map of France by Gerard de Jode. This example, corresponding the 1578 state, was published separately without text on the back and bound in an atlas factice. It was originally coloured with a magnificent late 16th full hand colour, close to the frescoes of the Gallery of Maps in Vatican, which were made between 1580-1583. Such colouring, which is more typical for the murals, and is seldom seen on works of paper. It is amongst the most decorative 16th century colouring we have encountered. Separately Published Maps by de Jode - This ia a separately issued edition without text on the back, corresponding to the state, published in 1578 atlas Speculum Orbis Terrarum by Gerard de Jode. As most of the 1578 de Jode maps were issued with text on the back in an atlas, examples were also sold by the author separately without the text (Shirley, p. 51, no. 119; KOEMAN, Atlantes Neerlandici, vol. 2, p. 206).

Traduction faite sur la version latine de Lorenzo Valla.Précieux exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de Françoise-Louise de Warens, dite Madame de Warens.Née à Vevey en 1699 dans une famille de petite noblesse protestante, Françoise Louise de la Tour, devenue Mme de Warens, s'établit à Annecy en 1726 où elle vécut d'une pension de la cour de Savoie dont elle fut parfois l'agent secret. Devenue catholique, elle recevait volontiers les nouveaux convertis et ouvrit sa porte au jeune Rousseau, apprenti genevois en fuite, de treize ans plus jeune que celle qui deviendra « Maman » ; Mme de Warens le prit sous son aile, l'éduqua, le forma et finira par l'aimer.

SAXTON, Christopher
Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Gloucestershire Double-page engraved map, fine original hand-colour in outline, some offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. This map of Gloucestershire is the first map ever produced of the county, and was created by Christopher Saxton as part of his royal commission to survey the entirety of England and Wales. His findings were compiled in the first national atlas, his 'Atlas of England and Wales', containing 33 other county maps in addition to Gloucestershire. The cartographer has depicted its forests, hills, cities, towns and rivers as small illustrations, each labelled with their name in English, while the surrounding counties are denoted by their Latin titles. Despite its location in the county of Somerset, Bristol is represented on the South border due to the significance of the city. Similarly, certain border towns and villages in Wales are depicted for defensive and administrative reasons. So too the settlements on the coast and along the banks of the River Severn are carefully recorded. In fact, on the personal copy held by Lord Burghley, the Secretary of State, annotations to this region point towards his concern of enemy attacks via these waterways. Within the county, the most prominent cities are depicted as collections of buildings and spires, namely Gloucester, Cheltenham and Cirencester. The village of Hales, in the North of the county, came to be of significance for Saxton when he was called to testify at a legal case concerning the Abbey there.

Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Essex Double-page engraved map, fine original full-wash colour, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. In 1575, Christopher Saxton was authorised by the Queen's Privy Council to survey and map the counties of England and Wales, a task which he had completed by 1579, when the resulting maps were compiled and published in his seminal Atlas of England and Wales. This map of Essex is one of the 35 maps included in the atlas, and the first county map of Essex ever to be produced. It records the county's landscape and settlements, represented by small illustrations of Churches, enclosed parklands, rivers, bridges, and the occasional hill. Details of the surrounding counties, labelled with their Latin names, are also included, most prominently London, represented by a mass of buildings, intricately illustrated. Saxton has also expressed certain features of Essex which would be of interest to the crown, such as the Blockhouse Fort on Mersea Island, an unlabelled beacon South West of Colcester, and New Hall in the crown estate of Boreham, previously home to Queen Mary. Alongside its administrative function, Saxton's county maps were commissioned as a tool for defensive planning, and for this reason coastal areas receive particular attention. Lord Burghley, then Secretary of State, annotated his personal proof copy of the Essex map with details about coastal settlements and local gentry, noting 'Heyghfeld fayre and fatt, Barndon park better than that, Coppledon beares a Crown, Copthall be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Monmouthshire Double-page engraved map, fine original hand-colour in outline, some offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. In 1575, Christopher Saxton was authorised by the Queen's Privy Council to survey and map the counties of England and Wales, a task which he had completed by 1579, when the resulting maps were compiled and published in his seminal Atlas of England and Wales. The first map in the Welsh section of the atlas is of Monmouth, the first map of the county ever to be produced. On receiving his commission, the cartographer was issued a warrant, instructing "all Justices of the Peace, Mayors or others in Wales to see [him] conducted to any towre, castle, high place or hill, to view that county". There was no similar edict made out to officials in the English counties, perhaps suggesting that Saxton may have anticipated some hostility from the Welshmen whose lands he was to examine. The cartographer was nonetheless able to record the settlements and landscape of Monmouthshire, depicted pictorially with illustrations of the county's hills, rivers, woodlands, villages and towns. Abergavenny, Uske, Monmouth and Chepstow are the most prominent towns, while larger hills dominate the West side of the county. Small enclosures are used to depict the estates of the local gentry, a system that also explains the small enclaves of 'Welshe Bycknor' and 'The Fothol' separated from the main region to the North. The 1536 Act of Union allocated land based on its aristocratic … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAXTON, Christopher
Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Worcestershire Double-page engraved map, fine original hand-colour in outline, some offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. In 1576, the Privy Council of Queen Elizabeth I gave Christopher Saxton royal authority to survey the counties of England and Wales, in order to produce a series of maps later to be collected into the first national atlas ever produced. This map of Worcestershire, or 'Wigornia', is the fourth of the 34 county maps included in the work, and the first comprehensive representation of the county. The rivers, towns and cities illustrated on the map are labelled with their sixteenth century English names, while the surrounding counties are noted in Latin. Of particular importance for Lord Burghley, who commissioned the maps along with courtier Thomas Seckford, were the estates of the gentry. As Secretary of State, this information was essential for administrative and defensive matters, and on his personal proof copy, Burghley's handwritten annotations list the influential residents of Worcestershire, along with their lands and properties. Similarly, the border areas between counties receive particular attention on Saxton's maps, as evidenced here by the areas surrounding Malvern, the Forest of Wire, and the Vale of Euesholiue (modern Evesham), which include details of towns and cities outside the county boundary. Characteristically, the map features the county name, written in Latin, within an elaborate red and blue cartouche in the top right corner. T … [Click Below for Full Description]

Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Pembrokeshire Double-page engraved map, fine original hand-colour in outline, some offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. In 1575, Christopher Saxton was authorised by the Queen's Privy Council to survey and map the counties of England and Wales, a task which he had completed by 1579, when the resulting maps were compiled and published in his seminal 'Atlas of England and Wales'. Included in the Welsh section of the atlas is this map of Pembrokeshire, the first map of the county ever to be produced. After the 1536 Act of Union, Wales was officially incorporated into the Kingdom of Henry III, and for the rest of the Tudor period, the country largely benefitted from the increased trading opportunities that emerged. What had been smaller settlements grew into major towns, such as Tenby, Haverfordwest, Pembroke, Newport and St Davids, all of which are represented here as a collection of buildings. Saxton also records many of the smaller villages that populated the county, as well as expressing the landscape with illustrations of its rivers, hills and woodlands, albeit in less detail that the majority of the English county maps. For defensive reasons, the coastal areas receive greater attention, including the small islands a little way off the Welsh shore. It has been suggested that Pembroke was of particular significance as the closest part of the Kingdom to Ireland, for which reason it has been designated its own map while certain other counties are combined together.

Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Radnor, Breconshire, Cardiganshire and Carmarthenshire Double-page engraved map, fine original hand-colour, some offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. In 1575, Christopher Saxton was authorised by the Queen's Privy Council to survey and map the counties of England and Wales, a task which he had completed by 1579, when the resulting maps were compiled and published in his seminal 'Atlas of England and Wales'. On this map, the Welsh counties of Radnor, Breconshire, Cardiganshire and Carmarthenshire are presented together, but distinguished in colour. It is the first map to show cartographic representations of any of the four counties. With Wales having been officially incorporated into the Tudor kingdom by the 1536 Act of Union, it was essential for the Queen and her government to have accurate information about its settlements and landscapes. These are represented pictorially on this map, with hills, rivers, woodlands, towns and villages illustrated and labelled. The region of Radnor that borders Hereford receives particular attention, as do coastal areas, as places that might be of administrative or defensive importance. On undertaking his journey into Wales, Saxton was issued with a warrant instructing all Welsh magistrates to supply him with Welsh-speaking guides; these aids surely proved necessary in helping the cartographer to record locations such as Llanyhanglemantbrane, Blaynllynuye and Llestinan Kethitalgarth.

In 1575, Christopher Saxton was authorised by the Queen's Privy Council to survey and map the counties of England and Wales, a task which he had completed by 1579, when the resulting maps were compiled and published in his seminal 'Atlas of England and Wales'. According to Barber, the earliest of Saxton's county maps, and certainly the earliest map of Norfolk, the landscape and settlements of the county are recorded here in great detail, including small villages alongside larger towns and cities, most prominently Norwich, complete with a small but intricate illustration of its cathedral. Unlike Saxton's later maps, the estates and grounds of local gentry are not represented here, and the county's woodland areas are far more sparse. Nevertheless, the cartographer still depicts the major and minor rivers with their bridges, along with the hills that run down the West of the county and the 'Mershe Lande' towards the border with Cambridgeshire. Uniquely, he also includes a key in the upper right corner with corresponding to the administrative units into which the county was divided. It is one of only four maps to show their counties divided into 'hundreds' in this way. Alongside its function as an administrative tool, this map was designed to be used by the Secretary of State, Lord Burghley, for his defensive strategies in case of a naval invasion.

SAXTON, Christopher
Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Hampshire Double-page engraved map, fine original hand-colour, some minor offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. In 1575, Christopher Saxton was authorised by the Queen's Privy Council to survey and map the counties of England and Wales, a task which he had completed by 1579, when the resulting maps were compiled and published in his seminal Atlas of England and Wales. This map of Hampshire, or 'Southamtonia', presents the findings of Saxton's survey, and is the first printed map of the county ever to have been created. The characteristic features of the county are depicted pictorially, with the mass of trees in the South West representing the New Forest, and the South Downs shown as a collection of hills in the centre. The city of Winchester is prominently expressed, with a small but intricate illustration of its cathedral, along with several bridges crossing the River Itchen. Saxton's maps were designed both for ornamental purposes, as evidenced by the grand ships and questionable sea-creatures illustrated in the ocean, and to aid in administrative and defensive planning. For this reason, Hampshire's many coastal inlets and rivers receive particular attention because of their importance in the case of a naval attack. Indeed, when the Spanish Armada approached in 1588, the beacons shown on the top of the coastal hills proved to be essential to the military in conveying information. While Saxton included certain significant features of the surrounding counties, the I … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAXTON, Christopher
Christopher Saxton,, London, 1579. The first printed map of Warwickshire and Leicestershire Double-page engraved map, fine original colour in outline, some offsetting, contemporary annotation on verso in brown ink, some light marginal soiling. Warwickshire and Leicestershire are found together on the first map to ever show each county, as surveyed by Christopher Saxton. In 1576 the cartographer received the patronage of courtier Thomas Seckford and the authority of the Queen's Privy Council to map the settlements and landscape of England and Wales, a task that resulted in the first national atlas, his 'Atlas of England and Wales'. The Trent and Avon both feature prominently across the surveyed area, with their many bridges also illustrated. Along these rivers are found some of the counties' major towns and cities, such as Leicester, Rugby, Henley and Stratford (here 'Stretford'), the birthplace of Shakespeare. Such variation in the spelling of place names can be attributed to their distinct sixteenth century forms, but in some cases may simply be errors, since Saxton relied on information received verbally from locals. The map also expresses the natural landscape of the counties, with the hills along Warwickshire's southern border representing the topmost area of the Cotswolds. Surprisingly, however, the area marked as Bosworth is noticeably devoid of any hills, including that on which Richard III stationed his army before battle in 1485. This map is unusual for Saxton's county maps in that it includes a labelled road, Watling Street, along with the typical forests, estates … [Click Below for Full Description]

Les quatre livres réunis ici constituent un intéressant panorama de son œuvre à partir de son procès en 1578.

"Forbidden to practice medicine in Paris, he wrote this work to show publicly that gout, dropsy, epilepsy, pthisis (tuberculosis), gravelle (urinary calculus), and quartan fever are curable. The rest of the work is a defense of Paracelsus and his view that medicine cannot be practiced without a knowledge of alchemy, a fact known not only to Dioscorides, Rhazes, Avicenna, and Arnald of Villanova but also to men of his own time such as Fernel, Wecker, Adam of Bodenstein, and 'the learned Andernach, the premier physici … [Click Below for Full Description]

Demi-veau olive, dos lisse, titre en long et fleurons aux pointillés, tranches rouges. Reliure du XIXe siècle. Bel exemplaire, bien qu?un peu court en tête avec atteinte à quelques n° de pages. (Petite tache à un feuillet.)? ?Seconde édition des oraisons funèbres du roi Charles IX par Arnaud Sorbin. Elle est dédiée à Elisabeth d?Autriche. Le texte du sermon avait été publié dès 1574, quelques semaines après avoir été prononcé devant la cour. Le prédicateur y dressait un bilan glorieux de l?action de Charles IX, célébrant le roi défunt parvenu à rétablir l?unité spirituelle de ses sujets, au prix de sa vie même. Il expliquait que si le roi était mort si jeune c'est que les hommes, et plus particulièrement les hérétiques, ne s'étaient pas soumis à son autorité et avaient « tellement outré son c?ur » que peu à peu la tristesse avait causé sa mort. Ainsi lorsque les médecins ouvrirent le corps du roi il y découvrirent un c?ur « destié de perdicardie, sec et aride, de langueur et d?ennuy.» Enfin, Sorbin lançait un appel à Henri de Valois devenu roi de Pologne quelques mois plus tôt.

1579. Nur gering fleckig, kleine Einrisse im Falzbereich, insgesamt gut. "Instrumentum Weisthumbs Ihm Eßweiler Thall de dato 1579 9 sept." Umfangreiche handschriftliche Niederschrift des mündlich tradierten Weistums des Eßweiler Tals von 1579. Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier (32 x 21,5 cm), datiert 9. September 1579. Umfang: 32 neuzeitlich paginierte Seiten. Geschrieben vom Notar Michael Clodius aus Schwäbisch Hall, seit 1571 Stadtschreiber in Kaiserslautern, der bei der Verlesung des Weistums persönlich anwesend war. Erwähnt ist der oberste Grundherr Friedrich Cratz von Scharfenberg. U.a. über Aufgaben des Schultheißen, Falschmaß, Marksteine, Strafen für Körperverletzung etc., Schöffengericht, Hubergericht und Kanzelgericht, über fahrende Habe, Gewaltsachen, Apellation, Waidfang, Bienen, Finden von Schätzen... Zustand: Nur gering fleckig, kleine Einrisse im Falzbereich, insgesamt gut. Eßweiler (heute im LK Kusel) wurde 1296 erstmals urkundlich erwähnt und war Namensgeber des mittelalterlichen Verwaltungskomplexes Eßweiler Tal. "Als Weistum (bis 1901 »Weisthum« mit th, Abk. Weisth.) wird eine historische Rechtsquelle bezeichnet, die in der Regel mündlich überliefert oder nach Verhandlungen protokolliert wurde. Grimm führt den Begriff zurück auf "kollektive Aussage rechtskundiger Männer über das bestehende Recht", wobei hier in erster Linie der Vorgang der unmittelbaren Rechtsfindung gemeint ist und nicht die geschriebene Form. Das Weistum wird zum Teil auf Stammesrechte bis hin zum nordischen Thing zurückgeführt." (Quelle: wikipedia.).

Jan MATAL o METELLUS (Poligny 1510 - 1597 ca.)
1579. 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 all'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, caposaldo di ogni collezione car … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham ORTELIUS (1528 - 1598)
1579. Interessante mappa di Ortelius incentrata su Cremona e il fiume Po, con un grande cartiglio per la rappresentazione del territorio di Crema. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione latina del 1588 del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum La fonte cartografica, come indicato espressamente nel cartiglio in basso al centro (Antonius Campus pictor Cre/monensis descripsit, 1579), è il lavoro di Antonio Campi, il quale nel 1571 ricevette il privilegio di stampa per la sua mappa di Cremona e dintornti. Ortelius si basa su una versione manoscritta della mappa che fu pubblicata nel 1583. L'inserto con il territorio di Crema rimanda a una carta pubblicata da Forlani nel 1570, di cui è sconosciuta la fonte (Meurer p. 126, 89-90). Splendido esemplare in coloritura d'epoca, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nice full color example of Ortelius' map of the region centered on Cremona and the Padus River, with a large inset with a representation of the area of Crema. Example from the 1588 Latin edition of Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Cartographic source is the map by Antonio Campi (1536-1591 or later), who received a privilege for his map of the surroundings of Cremona in 1571. Ortelius' map is based on a manuscript version of this map, which was published in 1583. The inset of Crema goes back to an unidentified source, published by Forlani in 1570 (Meurer p. 126, 89-90). Cooerplate, original hand colours, with wide margins, in excellent condition. Ort 127 (Koeman/Meurer: 90, Karrow: 1/127, vdKrogtAN: 7030:31).
