        Antique Print-TARTARIAE-ASIA-JAPAN-TARTARY-NORTH AMERICA-Ortelius-c. 1580

      - Antique print, titled: 'Tartariae Sive Magni Chami Regni typus.' - Map of Tartary, Japan and the West Coast of North America, from the 1612 Latin edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terarrum, the first modern atlas of the World. The map provides a remarkable early representation of what was then the Tartar Kingdom, extending from the Caspian Sea in the west to China, Japan and Russian Asia in the east. The also includes a remarkable early treatment of the Northwest Coast of America, California and the Southwestern US. The map is the earliest obtainable map to name California, and includes the 7 cities of Cibola in the Southwestern US, although only 6 cities are actually shown. The Straits of Anian are also named. The map includes a very curious early treatment of Japan and marvelous detail in Tartary, Asian Russia and China, including Marco Polo & Prester John notes, several vignettes, 2 decorative cartouches, sailing ships and sea monster. Several vignettes depict the tents of the Tartar kings. The map is richly annotated in Latin. Latin text on verso. Copperplate engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined. Ref: References: Van der Krogt 3, 8050:31; Van den Broecke, 163.3; Burden 41; Wagner, 81; Karrow, 1/67. Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Abraham Ortelius' after an anonymous artist. Abraham Ortelius was born 1528 in Antwerp. He studied mathematics, Greek and Latin and travelled a lot across Europe. He established a business in dealing with books and drawing maps. His first remarkable map was a 8 sheet world map in the year 1564, but only three copies have survived. In 1570 he issued the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern "Atlas" with uniformly sized maps in a systematic collection. The term "Atlas" was not used until Mercator introduced it 20 years later. Most of the maps in Theatrum have been engraved by Frans Hogenberg. At the time of publication, the atlas was the most expensive book ever printed. Nevertheless it was a big success and around 7000 copies have been printed until 1612 in many editions and six different languages. Beside the Theatrum, Ortelius compiled a series of historical maps and published it in the "Parergon Theatri" which was bound with the Theatrum from 1579 onwards or published separately. Condition: Good, given age. A few small worm holes near middel fold, one in bottom margin. Light staining and some spots in the margins. Original middle fold as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: BG-B1-43 The overall size is ca. 22.8 x 17.6 inch. The image size is ca. 18.6 x 13.8 inch. The overall size is ca. 57.8 x 44.8 cm. The image size is ca. 47.2 x 35 cm.

        Aurea practica criminalis . ex recognitione Arnoldi Baert.Coloniae, apud Maternum Cholinum , 1580.

      Coloniae, apud Maternum Cholinum 1580 - Cm. 16,5, pp. (24) 667 (61). Nota manoscritta al frontespizio: ex libris Petri Molinaei [Pierre du Moulin (1568-1658), teologo riformatore]. Ottima legatura coeva (verosimilmente tedesca) in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso e piccole unghie. Ben conservato. Iacopo da Belviso (1270-1335) fu consigliere a Napoli di Carlo II d'Angiò e giudice della Gran Corte. Influenzato dalla dottrina ultramontana fu autore di un'autorevolissima produzione scientifica; a questo proposito menzioniamo il commento ai Libri Feudorum e quello alle Autentiche. L'importanza della sua dottrina si può desumere anche dall'attenta lettura di giuristi come Bartolo, Baldo e Giason del Maino che ne fanno un punto di riferimento costante per le proprie teorizzazioni. Della sua formazione sappiamo invece che studiò a Bologna con Francesco d'Accursio e Dino del Mugello. La Practica criminalis, edita per la prima volta a Lione nel 1511, ottenne subito grande successo editoriale. Nonostante la storiografia contemporanea abbia fortemente messo in dubbio l'attribuzione della paternità, quest'importante opera rimane una delle fonti criminalistiche più ricercate e ambite nel mercato antiquario.

Jost von Meggen, a native of Lucerne, was the commander of the Swiss papal guard and had the distinction of being the first commander of the Swiss guard not to die in battle. He embarked on his trip to Jerusalem from Venice in July of 1542 in the ship "Santa Maria," under the command of Lucas de Segna, with 17 pilgrims all carefully named in the text. They stopped at Cyprus where another group of pilgrims joined them, arrived at Jaffa on 21 August and in Jerusalem the 26th, and left Jerusalem for their return trip on 7 September.    The travel account remained in manuscript at the time of Meggen's death in 1559. Jobst Segesser was responsible for editing and seeing it through the printing process.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).    Searches of NUC and WorldCat find fewer than ten U.S. libraries reporting ownership.    => Sole pre–20th century edition.         Adams M1035; VD16 M1910; Bucher 498; Tobler 72; Röhricht 66.

      A Paris, Pour Lucas Breyer, tenant la boutique au segond pillier de la grand’ salle du Palais, 1580. - (27) ff, portrait gravé, 173 pp, (2) ff. In-8 en demi veau glacé bleu nuit daté en queue 1580. Un ouvrage de vulgarisation qui combat les préjugés et superstitions populaires liés à la science et à la médecine modernes. Le chap. XXII a par exemple pour titre : "Contre ceus qui iuget de la suffisance des medecins par le succes, qui et deu souuan à l'heur, plus qu'au sauoir". L'auteur liste également toute une série d' "erreurs populaires et propos vulgaires" qui ne manqueront pas d'amuser, citons notamment : "293. Pourquoy les fames s'anuyret mal aisemant, & les viehars facilemant.", ou encore "307. Et il vray, que la tristesse ampeche les fames de conceuoir ?" Le livre est écrit selon une très expérimentale (et curieuse) réforme de l'orthographe qui simplifie l'écriture. Cet exemplaire provient de la bibliothèque de Raspail, dont il porte le timbre humide sur la page de titre, ce qui est une rencontre signifiante compte-tenu des travaux de Raspail lui-même ; il publie notamment en 1845 son "Manuel de Santé à l'intention des milieux populaires". Un livre fort rare et fort curieux. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ORGUEILLE ET FOLLIE

      Published c. 1580 this plate, Pride and Folly, belongs to a series of four designs for tazzas by de Bry. Medallion with a double head; if turned around the print shows a profile of a satyr, reminding of Folly. The border is decorated with fantastic creatures, themes and symbols referring to Superbia like a peacock, the mistress of Babylon, the fall of Phaeton, the Fall of Marcus Curtius, Adam and Eve under the tree. Part of a series of four plates with a medallion in a wide border with grotesques with figures, animals and vines on a dark ground. The border around the medallion and the outer edge include Dutch and French verses. It has been suggested that the male profile might be that of Pope Paul IV (born Gian Pietro Carafa, 1476-1559) who instituted the Inquisition as a political organ of the Church, to control not only dogmatic issues but also political and economical businesses. Under his papacy was introduced the 'Index librorum prohibitorum' and 'ghettos' for the Jews were institutionalized with the 'Cum nimis absurdum' bull (1555). This bull revoked all the rights of the Jewish community and placed religious and economic restrictions on Jews in the Papal States, renewed anti-Jewish legislation and subjected Jews to various degradations and heavy restrictions on their personal freedom. Signed within internal border: 'T. D. B. F.'. On the verso unknown collector's mark.

      Artist: Cluverus (Clüver) Philipp (-1622) Leiden; issued in: Leiden; date: 1603 1580 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Some minor repairs; size (in cm): 36 x 49; description: Decorative map of Italy with the Islands of Sardegnia and Corsica, not text on reverse. ; - vita of the artist: Philipp Clüver (Philippus Cluverius) 1580- 1622 was an Early Modern German geographer and historian. Clüver was an antiquary, who was given a special appointment at Leiden as geographer and put in charge of the universitys library, but his lifes project, it developed, was a general study of the geography of Antiquity, based not only on classical literary sources, but ? and this was his contribution ? supplemented by wide travels and local inspections. He became virtually the founder of historical geography. Clüvers Germaniae antiquae libri tres (Leiden, 1616) depends on Tacitus and other Latin authors. A volume on the antiquities of Sicily, with notes on Sardinia and Corsica (Sicilia Antiqua cum minoribus insulis ei adjacentibus item Sardinia et Corsica), published at Leiden by Louis Elsevier in 1619, is a useful source, with many reference from writers of Antiquity and maps that are often detached and sold to map collectors.

        La pesca delle perle

      1580 - Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium Di ritorno ad Anversa dal suo lungo viaggio in Italia, lo Stradano conobbe Philip Galle, già allievo di Hieronimus Cock e da poco dedito all’arte dell’editoria. I due proggettarano la produzione di una serie di soggetti venatori, ispirati agli arazzi della villa di Poggio a Caiano. Il Galle all’inizio diede alla luce una serie di incisioni senza numerazione, alla quale fece seguita una seconda stesura composta da frontespizio e 44 tavole numerate. La fortuna immediata dell’opera convinse l’editore a proseguire la collaborazione con lo Stradano che venne così impeganto nell’esecuzione di nuovi disegni, con temi venatori esotici ed inusuali. Questo nuovo ciclo fu dapprima pubblicato separatamente, ed in seguito unito al precedente, costituendo al vasta serie di 104 tavole, intitolata appunto Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae. La serie è databile tra il 1578 (data sul frontespizio) e 1596. Come già gli arazzi della villa di Poggio a Caiano, l’opera è raggruppata per argomenti suddivisi in tre vaste categorie: animali terrestri, d’aria e d’acqua. All’inizio le scene di caccia furono incise dallo stesso Philip Galle che successivamente impiegò altri membri della sua famiglia ed assistenti vari quali Adriaen e Jan Collaert, Theodor e Cornelis Galle e Carolus de Mallery. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, leggeri segni di usura nell’angolo inferiore destro di alcune tavole, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni circa 256x201. Hollstein VII p. 81, 528-567; A. Baroni Vannucci, pp. 371 – 389. Once back in Antwerp, after a long trip to Italy, Stradano met Philip Galle, former pupil of Hieronumus Cock, who had recentely devouted himself to the art of printing. They planned together the realization of hunting subjects, inspired by the tapestry of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano. At the beginning, Galle realized a series of engravings without numbers, to which a second edition followed, with title page and 44 numbered plates. The sudden fame of his work convinced the printer to go on with his cooperation with Stradano, who realized new drawings with uncommon and exotic hunting subjects. The new series was published first separately, then together with the first edition, forming a wide series of 104 plates, named Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae. This work can be dated between 1578 (on the front page) and 1596. As for the tapestry of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano, the work is divided in three wide categories: terrestrial, air and water animals. At the beginning the hunting scenes have been engraved by Philip Galle himself, who then hired other members of his family and other assistants, among which Adriaen and Jan Collaert, Theodor and Cornelis Galle and Carolus de Mallery. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, light signs of wear on lower right conrner of some of the plates, small repairs perfectly executed, in general in good condition.

The second part with an engraved title-page showing a full-length portrait of Don Diego Sarmiento de Acuña, Count of Gondomar and 2 large engravings in text, showing the Spanish Parliament with a devil and a bishop and the English Jesuit-Council.

      Knuttel 3529 (part 2: cf. 3056: a similar ed. of part 1); Sabin 78376 & 78377; STC 22100.2 & 22103.3; STCN (3 copies of part 2: cf. 2 similar eds. of part 1). Two rare popular pamphlets warning English and Dutch Protestants against the machinations of Spain, by the fervently anti-papist minister and pamphleteer Thomas Scott (ca. 1580-1626). Both pamphlets describe in detail how the Spanish Parliament under the direction of Gondomar, the Spanish Ambassador to England from 1613 to1622 (and influential thereafter), plotted against the English, greatly helped by the many high-placed Jesuits in England, over whom Gondomar also held his sway. Both parts claim to be translations of original Spanish reports, but they were in fact invented by Scott as pieces of political propaganda. There are several editions of both parts and the order of publication is unknown. First accepted by many as genuine history, the pamphlet caused a great stir and was immediately suppressed in England, but it was found to have been printed abroad, probably in the Netherlands. Of special interest in the present English edition are the fine engravings, which do not appear in the Dutch translation.With the bookplates of James Bindley (d. 1818), William Stirling (ca. 1895?) and Gordon W. Jones. Part 1 in very good condition, with some stains and repairs in the gutter margin of the 2 outermost leaves; part 2 slightly browned and a few leaves with waterstains, but still good. Part 1 has been trimmed slightly smaller than part 2. Two anti-Spanish political pamphlets, both of American interest.

      - Landwehr, Emblem Books Low Countries 618-619; Praz, pp. 450-451; STCN (5 copies); WorldCat (4 other copies). Rare first edition of the most popular work of Dirck Pietersz. Pers (1580-1662), reformed bookseller/publisher and poet. For almost a century, Pers managed to reach a large audience with this work that was reprinted more than 15 times during the 17th century. This success can mainly be ascribed to the fine combination of edifying religious songs and enigmatic emblems. It was based on Hadrianus Damman’s emblem book from 1578. Landwehr records 2 issues of this edition; with 5 (1st issue) respectively 4 (2nd issue) lines of errata on the verso of the last leaf and a repetition of emblem 3 as the first emblem. Our copy has 4 lines, and the correct emblem (no. 5) as first emblem, thus making this the second corrected issue.With bookplate. Spine rubbed, but binding otherwise good. Some occasional thumbing and spots and the gutter of the title-page restored. Very good copy.

      Chez Claude Micard 1580 - - Chez Claude Micard, A Paris 1580, In-12 (8x12,3cm), 573ff., relié. - Nouvelle édition de la traduction de Pierre Saliat parue pour la première fois en 1556 au format in-folio. L'ouvrage d'Herodote est complété par George Gemisthe (dit Plethon) sur l'histoire des Grecs après la mort d'Epaminondas à Matinée. Page de titre dans un encadrement Renaissance. Reliure en plein maroquin vieux rouge ca 1860 signée Capé. Dos à nerfs orné de 4 petits fleurons. Titre et date dorés. Encadrement à froid sur les plats avec fleurons angulaires. Tranches sorées. Riche frise intérieure. Mors, coiffes et coins frottés. La foliotation passe de 344 à 445 sans manque. Bel exemplaire. La popularité d'Herodote sous la Renaissance fut immense, alors même qu'il avait été sévèrement critiqué par les auteurs grecs qui le suivèrent. Sa façon très libre d'écrire l'histoire, mêlant récits de voyages, études de moeurs, réflexions politiques et légendes fut un modèle pour les écrivains du XVIe siècle. Le découpage en 9 livres correspondant aux neufs muses daterait du Ier siècle de notre ère. On y distingue une histoire de l'empire Perse, les guerres médiques et des digressions sur Athène et Sparte. George Gemisthe fut un philosophe bysantin néo-platonicien de la fin du XIVe siècle ; il se voulait l'héritier de la culture hellénique.

Contemporary limp vellum, lacking ties, spine hand lettered in ink. Early inscription to title page, pencil note to front pastedown and endpapers. Spine ends and corners rubbed, covers a little marked, pastedowns creased and with a few tears, margins a little browned and with a few small nicks to fore edges, a very good copy. One of two editions printed in 1580 of "one of the perennial documents of anti-tyranny" (PMM), originally published the year before. Although there is some doubt about the authorship as it was published under the pseudonym "Stephanus Junius Brutus, Celta", it is typically attributed to the Calvinist diplomatist and writer Hubert Languet (1518-1581), though it has also been suggested to be the work of Philippe de Mornay. It is a vindication of the people's right to resist tyranny, and its impact can be measured by noting the times and places at which it has been translated or reprinted (London, 1648 and 1689; Paris, 1789; Berlin, 1848). It is bound as issued with De iure magistratum, a similar protest against tyranny in relation to religious matters, by the Protestant theologian Théodore de Bèze. The other 1580 edition was printed by the leading Protestant printer in Basel, Pietro Perna, together with a Latin translation of Machiavelli's The Prince.

[Engraved title-page:] The second part of Vox populi, or Gondomar appearing in the likeness of Matchiavell in a Spanish Parliament, wherein are discovered his treacherous & subtile practises to the ruine as well of England, as the Netherlandes. Faithfully transtated[!] out of the Spanish coppie by a well-willer to England and Holland.Gorinchem [= London], "Ashuerus Janss" [printed by Nicholas Okes], 1624. 2 separately published parts in 1 volume. 4to. The second part with an engraved title-page showing a full-length portrait of Don Diego Sarmiento de Acuña, Count of Gondomar and 2 large engravings in text, showing the Spanish Parliament with a devil and a bishop and the English Jesuit-Council. Half red sheepskin (ca. 1800), with blind-stamped coat-of-arms of William Stirling Maxwell on front.

      Knuttel 3529 (part 2: cf. 3056: a similar ed. of part 1); Sabin 78376 & 78377; STC 22100.2 & 22103.3; STCN (3 copies of part 2: cf. 2 similar eds. of part 1). Two rare popular pamphlets warning English and Dutch Protestants against the machinations of Spain, by the fervently anti-papist minister and pamphleteer Thomas Scott (ca. 1580-1626). Both pamphlets describe in detail how the Spanish Parliament under the direction of Gondomar, the Spanish Ambassador to England from 1613 to1622 (and influential thereafter), plotted against the English, greatly helped by the many high-placed Jesuits in England, over whom Gondomar also held his sway. Both parts claim to be translations of original Spanish reports, but they were in fact invented by Scott as pieces of political propaganda. There are several editions of both parts and the order of publication is unknown. First accepted by many as genuine history, the pamphlet caused a great stir and was immediately suppressed in England, but it was found to have been printed abroad, probably in the Netherlands. Of special interest in the present English edition are the fine engravings, which do not appear in the Dutch translation.With the bookplates of James Bindley (d. 1818), William Stirling (ca. 1895?) and Gordon W. Jones. Part 1 in very good condition, with some stains and repairs in the gutter margin of the 2 outermost leaves; part 2 slightly browned and a few leaves with waterstains, but still good. Part 1 has been trimmed slightly smaller than part 2. Two anti-Spanish political pamphlets, both of American interest.

        [engraved title:] Pia desideria emblematis elegiis & affectibus SS. Patrum. illustrata ... Antwerp, Hendrik Aertssens I, 1624 (repeated in colophon). Small 8vo (15.5 x 9.5 cm). With letterpress half-title, richly engraved allegorical title-page, full-page engraved coat of arms of the dedicatee, Pope Urban VIII, full-page engraved introductory emblem, numbered "0", all on integral leaves, and 45 numbered engraved emblem plates by Boëtius à Bolswert. Half tanned sheepskin (ca. 1850), gold- and blind-tooled spine.

      De Backer & Sommervogel IV, col. 513; Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) III, Bolswert 145-192; Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 345; Porteman, Emblematic exhibitions, p. 17, fig. 6; Praz, pp. 143 ff.; STCV 6826501 (4 copies). First edition, in the original Latin, of the most popular spiritual love emblem book ever published, illustrated with the beautiful emblematic designs of the great baroque artist Boetius Adamsz. van Bolswert (ca. 1580-1633). Herman Hugo (1588-1629), a Jesuit priest who lived in Antwerp and elsewhere in the southern Low Countries, made the genre popular throughout Europe with his Pia desideria and especially its beautiful emblems by Van Bolswert. Its emblems, mixing heart-warming scenes of tenderness with dire warnings to sinners, even inspired the Protestant Jan Luyken's Jesus en de Ziel. Though the use of the Latin language would have demanded a fairly well-educated reader, it was still the language of the Catholic Church and the book clearly spoke to the common people. For this reason, the emblems depict people (often represented by putti) in daily life.With early owner's inscriptions on title-page mostly erased and a 17th-century interlinear inscription between the first lines of the dedication, and a 20th-century bookplate of Jos van der Steen. With a small rust hole in 1 leaf and an occasional, usually marginal brown stain, but still in very good condition. A seminal emblematic work mixing heart-warming scenes with dire warnings, both from daily life.
