      Londini (London): Thomas Vautrollerius, 1581. Later edition. Hardcover. fair to g+. Octavo (8 1/8 x 6"). [18], 3-336pp, as issued. 19th-century 3/4 morocco over marbled paper covered boards, with gold lettering and ruling to spine. Engraved title vignette. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials. P. De Loselerius Villerius' dedication to Henry (Hastings), third Earl of Huntington, followed by Beza's preface.Originally published in 1574, this 1581 edition of "The New Testament of our Lord Jesus Christ" is translated out of the Greek, and annotated by Theodore Beza (1519-1605), a French Protestant Christian theologian and scholar who played an important role in the Reformation. A member of the monarchomaque movement who opposed absolute monarchy, he was a disciple of John Calvin and lived most of his life in Switzerland. The annotations are mainly Beza's, but some were taken from J. Camerarius. Beza's annotations reflect the same theology of predestination, and at some points the same polemical thrust, as his treatises, though in a necessarily more compressed presentation. For example, on John 6:37, Beza noted, "The gift of faith proceeds from the free election of the Father in Christ, after which follows necessarily everlasting life. Therefore faith in Christ Jesus is a sure witness of our election, and therefore of our glorification, which is to come." On Romans 9:18, Beza wrote that the doctrine of reprobation vindicates God from the charge of unrighteousness.

        Asia secunda pars terrae in forma Pegasir

      Magdeburg 1581 - La mappa di Bunting è una delle prime rappresentazioni cartografiche dell'Asia nella forma del mitico cavallo alato, Pegaso. Il cavallo è disegnato abbastanza realisticamente, con una buona dose di immaginazione necessaria per visualizzare la mappa. La testa rappresenta l’Asia Minore con la bocca formata da Istanbul. Le ali contengono Asia centrale e Siberia. Il Mar Caspio appare orizzontalmente tra le ali e la sella. La Persia è delineato sul DORSO?? del cavallo, mentre le zampe anteriori formano l’Arabia. Le zampe posteriori rappresentano l’India e la Malesia. Secondo la mitologia greca, Pegaso, figlio di Poseidone e di Medusa, domato da Atena, divenne il cavallo delle Muse. E’ indubbiamente curioso che un’immagine di origine pagana sia stata utilizzata in un’opera sulla Terra Santa. L'Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura è stato pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1581 e quindi ristampata in dieci edizioni diverse. Xilografia, finemente colorata a mano, restauri perfettamente eseguiti ai laiti, nel complesso in buono sttao di conservazione. Bunting's map of Asia in the shape of the mythical winged horse Pegasus is among the earliest cartographic. The horse is drawn fairly realistically, with a good deal of imagination required to view the map. The head represents Asia Minor with the mouth at Istanbul. The wings portray Central Asia and Siberia. The Caspian Sea appears horizontally between the wings and the saddle. Persia is delineated on the horse blanket with the forelegs forming Arabia. The hind legs represent the Indian and Malay peninsulas. The winged horse of Greek mythology is the son of Poseidon and Medusa, was tamed by Athena and became the horse of the Muses. This obviously pagan origin of the image makes its appearance in a Holy Land travel book a bit of a mystery. A very famous, rare and curious cartographic representation of Europe from Bunting's Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura. For this map Bunting chose a design originated by Joannes Bucius in 1537. Europe is here in a shape of woman wearing a crown of Spain, France and Germany form the neck and bust, Bohemia the heart, Italy the left arm holding an orb (Sicily) and Denmark the right arm holding a scepter with Britain as the flag. The remainder of the figure is a flowing robe with Greece and Russia at the feet. It seems to personify a Spanish domination of Europe under the reign of Philip II. The representation has also identified as Mother Church and a tie in with the mythical princes Europa who was raped by Zeus. The earliest depiction of Europe as a woman is believed to be by the 14th Century Pavian Cleric Opicinus de Canistris for the papal court, then at Avignon. The woman represents the Mother Church, who is being seduced from the true path. In 1537 the Tirolese cartographer Johann Putsch celebrated the Hapsburg rule over Europe by presenting a placid "Europa Regina" wearing Charles V's Spain as a crown and Ferdinand's Austria as a medal at her waist, representing the triumph of the Hapsburgs. Later editions of Europe as a queen were issued by Sebastian Münster, Heinrich Bunting, and Matthias Quad. The Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura was published for the first time in 1581 and aftewards re-issued in ten different editions. Fine later hand colouring, perfectly executed repairs at the left and right margins, otherwise good conditions. Advertising Dimensioni 360 245mm

(i.e. 435) p. Seconde édition publiée la même année que l'originale, très largement augmentée par rapport à celle-ci éditée sous le titre de ‘Les secrets des thrésors de la France’. "Premier essai méthodique de statistique de l'histoire" (Baudrillart), l'ouvrage constitue une source fondamentale sur les conséquences financières, politiques et sociales des guerres de religion (1550-1580). Rédigé par un protestant français et publié sous ce pseudonyme de Froumenteau, l’essai a été parfois attribué à Nicolas Barnaud. Pour chacun des quatre-vingt-dix diocèses français, l'auteur fournit les statistiques des impôts royaux, rançons, rapines de la soldatesque, entretien des troupes, finances ecclésiastiques, villages ou bâtiments incendiés ou détruits, massacres collectifs ou exécutions, viols, clercs assassinés, nobles et soldats tués, etc. Ce constat, qui aurait été dressé à la demande des états de Blois - selon l’aveu même de l'auteur dans sa préface -, contribua à mobiliser l’opinion sur l’ampleur des désastres occasionnés.

        Traitté des arcbusades, divisé en trois parties, avec plusieurs autres traittés concernant cette matière. Tierce édition, sur l'exemplaire de l'auteur, augmenté presque d'un tiers.

      Lyon, Jean de Tournes, 1581. ____ Un des rares livres de chirurgie écrit en français à la Renaissance. Il contient neuf études sur le traitement des blessures d'arquebuses et diverses questions de médecine et de chirurgie. On traitait alors les plaies d'armes à feu en les brûlant à l'aide d'un fer rouge ou d'huile bouillante. Laurent Joubert, tout comme Ambroise Paré, montre l'absurdité de telles pratiques, les balles d'arquebuse n'étant pas venimeuses comme on le croyait alors. Joubert répond dans cet ouvrage à quantité de questions, telles que : A l'amputation d'un membre, est-il bon de le couper à la jointure, ou vaut-il mieux s'en abstenir ? Ou bien : Est-il possible qu'aucun prenne la pissechaude vérolique par l'accointance d'une femme qui soit bien nette de vérole ? Médecin ordinaire d'Henri III et d'Henri IV, chancelier de l'Université de Montpellier, Laurent Joubert a écrit tous ses ouvrages en français, à destinations des chirurgiens qui pour la plupart n'entendaient pas le latin. Pour la Biographie médicale, cet ouvrage "renferme les préceptes les plus judicieux sur la nature et le traitement des plaies d'armes à feu. Joubert prouve qu'elles ne sont point produites par le venin, ni la brûlure, et conclut que tout se borne à la contusion et à la solution d'unité." Cette troisième édition est la plus complète. On y trouve pour la première fois plusieurs textes, dont : Une "apologie de Nicolas Poget contre Joseph Du Chesne touchant le problème, s'il est possible d'envenimer les balles d'arcbouse" et la "Question des huiles, s'ils doivent être nécessaires à la curation des plaies, ulcères, tumeurs, douleurs & autres maux externes que traite le chirurgien." La première édition, qui date de 1570, ne compte que 68 pages. Illustré par un portrait de Joubert dans les feuillets liminaires. Exemplaire un peu court de marges, bien relié au XIXe siècle, couleur du dos passée. Ex-libris gravé contemporain de la reliure : Dr. O.G.

        Gnomonices libri octo, in quibus non solum horologiorum solarium, sed aliarum quoque rerum, quae ex gnomonis umbra cognosci possunt, descriptiones geometrice demonstrantur.

      Rome: Francesco Zanetti, 1581. First edition of Clavius' masterwork on the theory and construction of sundials, "la plus grand ouvrage existent sur la gnomonique" (Houzeau & Lancaster). Clavius considers the astronomical background, the geometrical theory and the various construction methods. The design of sundials occupied many mathematicians in this period, such as Giovanni Battista Benedetti, Federico Commandino and Sebastian Münster. This topic, which requires the stereographic projection of circles on the celestial sphere onto the plane of the equator, was related to that of perspective and the study of the shadows of curves, which was of course also of interest to painters such as Albrecht Dürer. "Clavius describes fixed and portable dials, and includes diagrams for most of them. In common with earlier texts, some instruments are illustrated with two diagrams, one showing the construction details, and one showing the finished instrument" (Eagleton, p. 151). Clavius' edition of Euclid (1574) led him to being given the respectful title of "the Euclid of the 16th century", he substantiated (and also taught) Galileo's work on the heliocentric cosmology, and he was also deeply involved in the construction of the Gregorian calendar. Provenance: Library stamps and undecipherable inscription of the Minorites of St. Thomas of Turin on first page of dedication, and their ownership inscription on front free endpaper; signature of Joseph Ancona, also on front free endpaper. Costantino Sigismondi has framed Clavius' contribution within the context of an expanding early-modern world and the crucial role played by the Jesuits in the development of science in China: "The Jesuit scientist Christopher Clavius (1538-1612) was the most influential teacher of the renaissance. His contributions to algebra, geometry, astronomy and cartography are enormous. He paved the way, with his texts and his teaching for 40 years in the Collegio Romano, to the development of these sciences and their fruitful spread all around the World, along the commercial paths of Portugal, which become also the missionary paths for the Jesuits. The books of Clavius [including the present work] were translated into Chinese, by one of his students Matteo Ricci "Li Madou" (1562-1610), and his influence for the development of science in China was crucial. The Jesuits become skilled astronomers, cartographers and mathematicians thanks to the example and the impulse given by Clavius. This success was possible also thanks to the contribution of Clavius in the definition of the ratio studiorum, the program of studies, in the Jesuit colleges, so influential for the whole history of modern Europe and the western World" (Sigismondi).

Book Two is on particular transmutations, with a figure of a furnace. Book Three deals with rarer preparations, especially from minerals, and has chapters on those from mercury, sulphur, vitriol, tartar and arsenic. Book Four treats of more secret ways of making, from vegetable simples, extracts, distilled waters, balsams, essences and salts philosophic. But its fifth and last chapter is on extraction of essences and tinctures from all sort of stones. The fifth is devoted to various rarer and more secret remedies for all diseases of the human body from head to heel" (Thorndike).Very good copy, with only a few minor spots. The binding with a few wormholes, rubbed along the extremities and the spine chipped at the foot, but still firm.

        Î—ΡΩΔΙΑΝΟΥ ΙΣΤΩΡΙΑΝΟΥ ΒΙΒΛΙΑ . Η. Herodiani Histor. Lib. VIII. Cum Angeli Politiani Interpretatione, & huius partim Suplemento, partim Examine Henrici Stephani: utroque Margini adscripto. Eiusdem Henrici Stephani Emendationes quorundam Græci contextus Locorum, & quorundam Expositiones. Historiarum Herodianicas subsequentium Libri duo, nunc primùm Græcè editi.

      Classical Authors: [Geneva]. excudebat Henricus Stephanus. 1581. Small 4to. pp. [viii], 182, [ii], 79, [i]. (editio princeps of Zosimus.) With woodcut Estienne device to title page. Parallel text in Greek and Latin. Calf re-backed; 6 raised bands; gilt tooling matched to that of original boards red title label. Exlibris "Charlton Byam Wollaston "to front paste down; marbled end papers. Described by Dibdin as 'an elegant, rare and critical edition', with notes and textual revisions by Henri Estienne. The Latin translation is Politian's, and that accompanying Zosimus is by Leunclavius. This is the first edition of any part of Zosimus, although Estienne only printed the first two books. The volume was dedicated to Sir Philip Sidney. "For this edition of Herodian … Estienne has thoroughly revised, and made additions to, the popular Latin translation of Angelo Poliziano; he prints his corrections, additions, and textual comments in the margins. The second part consists of the editio princeps of the Roman history, written in Greek, by Zosimus, who wrote in the early sixth century, and whose work is our most important source for the period 395-410; Estienne has added his own Latin version" [Schreiber]. Zosimus is the main printed source for the British revolt of 409 AD and the 'Rescript of Honorius' Calf re-backed. Lightly toned. Herodian or Herodianus ,Herodian of Antioch (c. 170 – c. 240), was a minor Roman civil servant who wrote a colourful history in Greek titled History of the Empire from the Death of Marcus in eight books covering the years 180 to 238. His work is not entirely reliable although his relatively unbiased account of Elagabalus is more useful than that of Cassius Dio. He was a Greek (perhaps from Antioch) who appears to have lived for a considerable period of time in Rome, but possibly without holding any public office. From his extant work, we gather that he was still living at an advanced age during the reign of Gordianus III, who ascended the throne in 238. Beyond this, nothing is known of his life. Herodian writes (i.1.§ 3, ii.15.§ 7) that the events described in his history occurred during his lifetime. Photius (Codex 99) gives an outline of the contents of this work and passes a flattering encomium on the style of Herodian, which he describes as clear, vigorous, agreeable, and preserving a happy medium between an utter disregard of art and elegance and a profuse employment of the artifices and prettinesses which were known under the name of Atticism, as well as between boldness and bombast. He appears to have used Thucydides as a model to some extent, both for style and for the general composition of his work, often introducing speeches wholly or in part imaginary. In spite of occasional inaccuracies in chronology and geography, his narrative is in the main truthful and impartial However, some charge him with showing too great a partiality for Pertinax Brunet 3:119; Graesse 3:253; Dibdin II:15; Adams H-388; Renouard 149/7; Schreiber 209; Classical Authors History Herodian Zosimus Henri Estienne Henrici Stephani

        Apologie ofte Verantwoordinghe des doerluchtighen en hooghgeborenen vorsts ende heeren, heeren Wilhelms van Godes ghenade Prince van Orangien...teghen de Ban ofte Edict by forme van proscriptie ghepubliceert by den Coningh van Spaeg

      Leyden: Charles Silvius, 1581. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. Early full vellum, modest soiling and wear, spine and edges scraped, new endpapers, mild scattered foxing, old catalog entry pasted to endpaper - generally quite clean. Written originally in French in 1580 in answer to King Philip of Spain putting a bounty on his head for his actions against the crown in the form of an Edict of Proscription, it was published in Dutch, English and German in 1581. 130pp, printer's mark at rear, largely printed in black letter. A vital step forward in propaganda - in addition to vilifying the Spanish for the Proscription levied against him, William held Philip and the Spanish directly responsible for the problems in the Low Country. It led directly to the 1581 Act of Dismissal which rejected Philip's hold on the Netherlands. He was assassinated by Balthasar Gérard in 1584 who was looking to collect on the 25,000 crown bounty.
