        Cestria (Vulgo) Chester, Angliae Civitates

      Cologne: , 1581. Framed size: 510 × 600 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Latin text on verso Fine condition. This wonderful, early plan of Chester was published in the third volume (of 6) of Braun and Hogenberg's epic work 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'; published between 1572 and 1617. This monumental city atlas contained some 546 bird's eye city prospects and map plans. The work was originally published to accompany Abraham Ortelius' great atlas; the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570. This plan of Chester depicts it in Elizabethan times, with appropriate attired figures in the foreground, a inscription in Latin, numerous aristocratic and royal heraldic shields, and the coats of arms of the city itself and of the bishop of the city. The river Dee divides England from Wales and all of the principal buildings and fortifications within the city are listed and numbered. Chester was founded by the Romans, serving legion that was posted there to ward off the Celtic Welsh as an important harbour and defensive position. Following the withdrawal of the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons extended the walls in order to protect the city against incursions by the Danes.

        THE STRANGE AND DELECTABLE HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERIE AND CONQUEST OF THE PROVINCES OF PERU, IN THE SOUTH SEA. AND OF THE NOTABLE THINGS WHICH ARE FOUND THERE.

      London: Richard Iones, 1581. - 100 leaves. Woodcuts on first titlepage and in text. Small quarto. Full gilt morocco by Middleton, spine gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Trimmed close, affecting headlines but not text; some leaves with minor staining and soiling. Else good. The first English edition of one of the most important early histories of the Spanish conquest of Peru, first published in Spanish in 1555. Zarate was sent by the Spanish Crown to Peru to investigate its finances. He remained there for several years as treasurer-general, charged with looking into the region's financial affairs. He authored the present work from his notes upon his return to Spain. "This work, in four books, is, in fact, the foundation of all the subsequent histories of the events to which it refers, and the narrative is given with force and simplicity. The characters of the different heroes are clearly and strongly drawn, and there is a long, distinct chapter (9 of Book IV) on the appearance, conduct, and dispositions of Pizarro and Almagro. The accounts of the execution of Almagro, and of the assassination of Pizarro, are written with much spirit and picturesqueness; and the story of the misfortunes and final death of Atabaliba, the young Peruvian Inca, is very touching" - Church. The text is illustrated with interesting cuts, including the famous hill of silver at Potosi (depicted on the illustrated titlepage and again in the text) and one of llamas. CHURCH 126.

        EPISTOLAE CICERONIANO STYLO SCRIPTAE

      1581 - BUNEL, Pierre, and MANUZIO, Paulo. PETRI BUNELLI, GALLI, PRAECEPTORIS, & PAULAE MANUTII, DISCIPULI, EPISTOLAE CICERONIANO STYLO SCRIPTAE. Aliorum Gallorum Pariter et Italorum Epistolae eodem Stylo Scriptae. Geneva (Henri Estienne) 1581. Octavo. (vii)240(1)319pp. First and only authorized edition. A piracy may have been published in the same year. Estienne woodcut device on title (a philosopher standing at the foot of the Tree of Knowledge, and the motto "noli altum sapere.") The idea for this book stemmed from a conversation between the printer, Henri Estienne, who was known for his erudition, and King Henri III, the dedicatee. The King had asked why Italy, rather than France, claimed the most and best Ciceronian Latinists. Estienne went away and stewed a while, then described the conversation in Latin verse (quoted by Renouard), and published this comparison of letters written in Ciceronian Latin by Pierre Bunel (1499- 1546) and by the great editor of Cicero, Paulus Manutius, son and successor to Aldus. Estienne here champions French Ciceronians, printing the letter in which Manutius admits having learned to write correctly from Bunel, his companion of 40 years (p.111). Bunel's "Familiares aliquot Epistulae," (Paris, Estienne, 1551) was intended for juvenile readers ("in Adulescentiorum Ciceronis studiosorum gratiam"). The second portion, with its own half-title and pagination, contains the letters of Italians such as Longolio and Bembo, and the third, also with half-title, is a group of letters from French Latinists, including King Francis I. In early limp vellum, spine titled in ink. Pastedowns pulling loose; front fly adhering partially to paste-down; light spotting to title, and light marginal dampstain persisting to p.6; browning and corners torn off from pp. x-xi, not affecting text. Covers show age and soil. Small leather library label to spine. (Renouard 1581.5. British Museum 1084 i. 5. OCLC lists 3 copies in the USA).

Lorich studied in his native city, obtained a degree in theology in 1574 and became in 1581 dean of the theological faculty. He lectured for over thirty years and was elected several times rector of the Freiburg University. He was the author of numerous theological and devotional works, among them Der Wittfrawen Spiegel (1586), Cura corporis humani pia atque salubris:pro clericis, aliisque piis onmibus (1587), Pugna Spiritualis. Tractatus vere aureus: de Perfectione vitae Christianae (1599, in German: 1604), Fortalitium christianae fidei ac religionis adversus haereses horum temporum praecipuas (1606) (cf. K.-H. Braun, Jodocus Lorichius, in: "Freiburger Universitätsblätter", 137, 1997, pp. 61-64). The first work is the German translation of a letter by Bernard of Clairvaux to his sister on the education of a woman and is dedicated by the translator Lorich "to all young women and widows". The first letter by Jerome is a reply to Celantia, a lady of rank and a busy household administrator, who was asking for a rule of pious life, even though she was bound to a husband. This letter is not longer attributed to Jerome, of whose style it shows few traces. It has been ascribed in turn to Paulinus of Nola and Sulpicius Severus. The second letter is addressed to Laeta, the daughter of Jeromes co-ascetic Paula, on how to raise a female child. He, in short, views disembodiment as redemption, and therefore also as the final goal of education (cf. C. Landman, Education of the body of the female child: feminism in dialogue with Jerome, in: ¡°Studia Historiae Ecclesiaticae¡±, 32/1, 2006, pp. 147-161). VD 16, H-3506, K.-H.

Venetiis, apud Iuntas, 1581. Folio (335 x 220mm). Leaves (8), 272; (6), 277, (13, 1 blank), with printer's device on title and 39 woodcuts of plants in the 'De Simplicibus' section. Contemporary vellum, spine with later repairs (somewhat worn). Second illustrated edition, the first to include the commentary of Johannes Costaeus. Yahya ibn Masawaih or Mesue the younger is supposed to have been a Jacobite Christian living at Maradin on the Euphrates in the 10th-11th centuries. However none of his writings have ever been found in their original language and no Arabian bio- or bibliographer knows him and it is now believed that a Latin author of the early 13th century assumed the name. At any rate, these works gained soon authorative importance as the pharmacological quintessence of Arabic therapeutics, and the esteem in which they were held is shown by the fact that they belonged to the first medical books to be printed. The first book 'De Simplicibus' deals with the choice of purgatives according to their properties and actions and are divided into laxative, mild and drastic. The 'Grabadin', or apothecary's manual was the most popular compendium of drugs in medieval Europe, and was used everywhere in their preparation. It was also used in forming the first London Pharmacopeia. The book also contains a treatise on therapeutics, covering diseases of the head, chest and a fragment on hart diseases, as well as many commentaries on, additions to, the works of Mesue by other authors.Provenance: Bookplate of Edward Sandford Burgess; Horticultural Society of New York, bequest Kenneth K.
