        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. Middendorp, Jacob, Academiarum universi terrarum orbis lbri tres, nunc recens locupletati & recogniti. Köln, Maternus Cholinus, 1583. 12 Bll. (letztes weiß), 634 SS., 11 Bll. (letztes weiss), mit Druckermarke auf dem Titel. UND: 3. Ders., Academiarum celebrium universi terrarum orbis, liber quartum. Köln, Goswin Cholinus, 1594. Titel, 70 SS., mit Druckermarke auf dem Titel. Zu 2 und 3: VD 16 M 5182 und ZV 10952. 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.

        Beschrijvinghe van West-Indien ... Tweede druck.Leiden, Elzevier, 1630. Folio. With engraved frontispiece, 14 folding engraved maps, and many text illustrations. Contemporary vellum.

      Alden & Landis 30/88; Borba de Moraes, p. 384; Sabin 38555; cf. Burden, The Mapping of North America 229-231. 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. unbound. 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.

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).

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 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.

      Thomas Vautrollerius, Londini (London) 1581 - 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

"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.
