        Herodiani Histor. Libri VIII. Cum Angeli Politiani interpretatione & huius partim supplemento, partim examine Henrici Stephani... (Zosimi comitis et exadvocati fisci, Historia novae...) [with] DIO CASSIUS. Rerum Romanum a Pompeio Magno ad Alexandrum Mamaeæ, Epitome authore Ioanne Xiphilino... [with] DIO CASSIUS. Romanae Historiae Ultimi Libri Tres..

      (I) [Geneva]: Excudebat Henricus Stephanus 1581; (II) Lutetiae [Paris]: Ex officina Roberti Stephani 1551 & (III) Romae [Rome]: Ex Typographia Chracas 1724. Three works bound in one volume, 8vo, (viii), 182, (2), 79, (1); 357, (3); xxviii, 186 pp. Printers' woodcut to each title page, second work cut close to the top margin with some loss of page numbers and headline, brief old inked inscriptions to the first two title pages. Bound in 20th century half vellum over marbled boards, black morocco spine labels detailing only the first work. Herodian's history, first printed 1502, was edited by Henri Estienne using the Latin of Angelo Poliziano. It was dedicated to the English poet and courtier Sir Philip Sidney, whom Estienne had befriended some years earlier. The second publication Estienne had dedicated to Sidney, "...he was concerned lest Sidney should be dissipating his intellectual gifts in the futile life of the court, and begins his dedication with three lines adapted from an epistle of Horace warning him against throwing away the gifts Apollo gave..." (Buxton). The second part is the editio princeps of Zosimus' history, albeit only the first two books. Described by Gibbon as "a very questionable judge of merit", Zosimus wrote in Constantinople around 500 AD. The second work is also an editio princeps, of Xiphilanus' abridgement of books 61-80 of Dio Cassius' history, originally produced in the 12th century and the only source for this part of the work. It is beautifully printed by Robert Estienne (Henri's father) almost entirely in the Grec du Roi type designed for him by Garamond. Three years earlier Estienne had first published the surviving text of the rest of the work. The third work, a later printing of Cassius Dio's history, is, like the Herodian and Zosimus, printed in double column, Greek and Latin parallel. A splendid collection of three early historians. Adams (I) H388 & (II) D513.

        A declaration of the recantation of Iohn Nichols (for the space almoste of two yeeres the Popes scholer in the Englishe seminarie or college at Rome) which desireth to be reconciled, and receiued as a member into the true Church of Christ in England ...

      London: Imprinted by Christopher Barker, 1581. Small 8vo (14.5 cm; 5.75"). [98] ff. Nicholls (1555–84?) was educated at Brasenose but did not take a degree. Instead, he left upon completion of his course work and returned to his native Glamorgan, Wales, where he soon obtained a curacy. In 1577 he left his position, gave up his allegiance to the Church of England, travelled to Rome, and voluntarily submitted himself to the => Inquisition where he formally recanted his Protestantism. He was welcomed warmly into the Roman Catholic Church, and in 1580 was back in England.    He was arrested in Islington, London, sent to the Tower, recanted his Catholicism, became an informer denouncing various Catholics of his acquaintance. His allegiance changed yet again in 1582, in Rouen, where he recanted his most previous recantation and was => very cautiously received back in the Church of Rome. Death came soon after.    "Nicholls died on the continent in want and, probably, depression, most likely in 1584. He has been condemned by biographers for his want of constancy in what are assumed to be genuine, if bewildering, changes of faith and profession. Yet it may have been the case that there was a kind of cynical consistency in his animal sense of self-preservation, one actively encouraged by the systems of religious repression and polarization under which he managed for a while to operate with some success" (ODNB). => He was clearly one of the most troubled figures in the history of Recusancy.    This copy of his Declaration has setting 2 of the title-page, setting 1 of leaf N1r, and setting 1 of L1r (see ESTC). The title-page has a handsome, elaborate woodcut frame/border in a typical "Barker" style; the prefatory "epistola" is printed in italics, the preface in roman, and the text in gothic (i.e., black letter).    Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate only seven U.S. libraries reporting ownership of this, not one a Catholic institution.    Binding: Signed binding by Bedford. Full sprinkled calf, round spine, raised bands, gilt spine extra. Gilt triple-rule border on both boards; gilt double-rule on board edges; gilt turn-ins including a gilt dentelle rule and a gilt floral vine roll. Red French swirl marbled endpapers. All edges gilt.         STC (rev. ed.) 18533; ESTC S113205; Franks 6551. Apparently beyond the scope of Allison & Rogers (rev. ed.).

        Sammelband mit 3 Werken von Jacob Middendorp und einem von Loos - 1. Loos, Cornelis, Illustrium Germaniae scriptorum catalogus.

      Mainz, Kaspar Behem, 1581. - circa 17 x 12 cm. 119 Bll., mit Wappenholzschnitt auf dem Titel verso Blindgeprägtes Schweinsleder d. Zt. auf Holzdeckeln mit Schließen (Deckelprägung: I M A 1584) "VD 16 L 2478. Seltene einzige Ausgabe dieser Sammlung von 89 Biographien deutscher und belgischer Schriftsteller, verfaßt von dem zunächst in Mainz wirkenden Theologen Cornelis Loos (1546-1595). ?Er siedelte später ins Trier'sche über, woselbst aber seines Bleibens nicht war, weil er durch Bestreitung des Glaubens an Zauberei und Hexenwesen Anstoß erregte. Er mußte 1592 seine Ansichten hierüber öffentlich zurücknehmen und das Trier'sche Gebiet verlassen. Er begab sich nach Brüssel und verwaltete daselbst kurze Zeit eine Pfarrei; des Rückfalles in seine widerrufenen Irrthümer bezichtiget, hatte er eine längere Kerkerhaft zu bestehen. Den Folgen einer zum dritten Male gegen ihn erhobenen Anklage kam sein Tod zuvor? (ADB). Was die ADB vornehm verschweigt, ist folgendes: Loos stand in Opposition zu Binsfeld (dem Verfasser eines der berühmtestesten Hexenbücher überhaupt). Und weil er dessen kruden Ansichten widersprach, wurde er eingekerkert (vgl. Emil Zenz, Cornelis Loos ? ein Vorkämpfer Friedrich von Spees im Kampf gegen den Hexenwahn, in Kurtrierisches Jahrbuch 21, 1981, S. 146-153). - VORGEBUNDEN: 2.

Die erste und umfangreichste, aber schon früh angefeindete Gesamtgeschichte der Universitäten, verfasst von dem katholischen Theologen und Historiker Jacob Middendorp (1638-1611), der als Domherr in Köln wirkte. Die erste Ausgabe erschien unter dem Titel "De celebrioribus universi orbis Academiis libri II" 1567 bei Peter Horst in Köln. 1572 erschien das Werk dann erstmals unter dem obigen, noch leicht abweichenden Titel (damals noch beschränkt auf die christliche Welt) bei Cholinus. Für die Ausgabe 1594 schrieb Middendorp das vierte Buch als ?pulcherimmam appendix? (so der Titel). "Middendorp était laborieux et instruit; mais, manquant de critique, il est fort sujet à prendre pour des vérités les rêves de son imagination. l auteur y débite beaucoup de fables et d?idées singulières sur les académies dont il recule l?origine jusqu?au déluge de Noë, et à la prédication des apôtres chargés d?enseigner les nations. Conring, dans la préface de la seconde édit. des Antiquitates academicae, a jugé avec trop d?indulgence l?ouvrage de Middeldorp; mais J. Henri de Seelen a relevé quelques-unes de ses erreurs dans son livre De academiis, Lubec, 1756" (Biographie universelle XXIX, 2). Aus heutiger Sicht (Revolvy): "A pioneer work in the history of education and universities. It gave legendary foundations for European higher education, and its history was contaminated by the forgeries of Annius of Viterbo, factors leading to its being discounted by later authors." - FERNER: 4.

Rare enlarged second edition of this important account of the Americas by a director of the Dutch West India Company, Johannes de Laet (1581-1649). As a director of the WIC, Laet was in a good position to have access to information from the great wave of Dutch seafaring in the early part of the 17th century. Each of the 18 constituent books is devoted to a different region of the New World. The first book treats the West Indies, the second Canada, the third Virginia, the fourth Florida, and the fifth Mexico. The sixth book devotes extensive space to discoveries in California, the Gulf of California, and New Mexico. The remaining books describe the northern coast of South America, Peru, Chile, and Brazil.The 14 maps are engraved by the famous Hessel Gerritsz., official chart maker of the Dutch East India Company. These maps are the very best of the Americas to appear up to this time of publication (only 10 appeared in the first edition); they illustrate the Western Hemisphere, the Caribbean, New France, New England and Virginia, Florida, Mexico and Central America, Terra Firma (north-western South America), Peru, Chile, far South America, Paraguay and the Rio de la Plata basin, Brazil, Guiana, and Venezuela. Some light dampstains, minor soiling, without first free endpaper, otherwise in very good condition.

        Cosmographia Universalis. Die eigentliche und warhafftige gestalt der Erden und des Meeres

      Heinrich Bünting - Map. Woodcut with hand coloring. Sheet measures 12" x 14.75" This unusual map by Heinrich Bunting dates to circa 1581. The map depicts the ancient world and focuses on the continents of Africa, Europe and Asia. Although the continents appear to be presented in a rudimentary manner, they do in fact reflect geographic reality, showing important cities, including those associated with the travels of Biblical characters. Of interest are the many oddities presented on the map. The bottom left of the map includes a part of the coast of Brazil (America Die Newe Welt). In Asia, the Caspian Sea and the River Ganges dominate. Taprobana (Ceylon or Sri Lanka) is labeled, but no landmass is noted. Africa presents the Ptolemaic conception of the Nile and the mythical Mountains of the Moon (Montes Lunea). A large island in the center is the the mythical island of Meroe, where the tombs of the Nubian Kings were supposedly located. The map hints to Bunting's famous depiction of the European continent as a queen and the Mediterranean Sea connects to the Black Sea. Perhaps the most important and intriguing feature of the map is the partial landmass that appears on the lower right labeled 'India Meridionalis'. The striking resemblance of this landmass to the western coast of Africa, appearing at approximately the same position as the then 'undiscovered' continent would be, this map gave rise to the speculation that perhaps Portuguese knowledge of Australia existed nearly 25 years prior to the Dutch discovery of Australia by Willem Janszoon in 1606. Most likely, the landmass is a depiction of the southern portions of the Malay Peninsula. Beautifully rendered oceans feature sea monsters. The map was one of the ten maps that appeared in Bunting's "Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae". The map is in good condition with overall age toning and wear along centerfold. Left and right margin with text partially cut off. Some text is colored over, making it partially visible. Heinrich Bünting (1545-1606) was a Protestant pastor and theologian. His "Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura" was a popular collection of woodcuts of biblical geography based on the travels of notable figures in the Old and New Testaments. This map is an important example of his popular work.

        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.

First edition of a landmark in the history of Dutch literature and the apogee of Dutch emblem books, written by one of the most important authors of the Dutch Golden Age, Pieter Cornelisz. Hooft (1581-1648). For Hooft's cousin, the great Amsterdam cartographer, printer and publisher Willem Jansz. Blaeu, this edition opened an impressive series of books presenting modern Dutch poetry and literature. The emblems are followed by 48 songs, poems and sonnets, 45 published here for the first time. A second and expanded edition followed in 1618.Slightly browned along the edges, a few minor spots and browned flyleaves. A very good copy.
