[ZARATE, Augustin de]
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. First English edition of a primary account of Peru 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, where he remained 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 title and again in the text), and one of llamas.

BRAUN, George, & Franz Hogenberg.
Cologne: 1581. Framed size: 510 x 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. Taschen.

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.

BUNELLUS, PETRUS, AND MANUTIUS, PAULUS
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.

Paris: Mamert Patisson for Rob. Estienne, 1581. 8vo, 30 leaves. Woodcut Estienne device on title-page, little light marginal water stain, page some rippled. Apparantly inscribed by the author at the top of the title-page: "Hotamanus Author D(ono) D (edit) 1583 Kal. Jan." The top margin is trimmed so it is not possible to read the name on the donee. Bound in modern limp vellum, a nice clean copy. Renourad 183.1; Cioranesco 11566; National Library: 2752256R, not in Schriber. Scarce, the OCLC locates 5 copies, 4 in the US (IBV, HHG, NLM, PPC). Rare, not American Book Prices Current in the last 25 years. This is a legal tract on the law concerning the divorce or annulment of a marrage due to impotence or frigidity. France didn't follow the Tridentine edicts but Henry III's Edit de Blois of 1580. This tract was later issued in 1610. Francois Hotman (1524-90) was a French jurist born in Paris. Though his father was a serious Catholic and councellor to the Parliament in Paris, Hotman converted to Protestantism (1560) and was later implicated in the conspiracy of Amboise and ended up spending large parts of his life in Switzerland. He lectured in law at numerous universities and his stature brought overtures from the courts of Prussia, Hesse and Elizabeth's England. He traveled to Frankfurt with Calvin and was entrusted with confidential missions from the Huguenot leaders to German potentates, carrying at one time credentials from Catherine de Medici. "His most important work, Franco-Gallia (1573), was in advance of his age, and found favor neither with Catholics nor with Huguenots … [Click Below for Full Description]

Braun, Georg and Hogenberg, Frans:
Cologne, c. 1581. Copper engraving, 35.5 x 44 cms, fine original hand colour, some colour offsetting, German text to verso. Plan of Namur in Belgium. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum was one of the most significant cartographic works of the late sixteenth-century, printed over 45 year period between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first accurate surveys of many towns) and was inspired in part by the scope of Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terarrum which gathered together the best available geographical information. Town views and plans were all taken from direct observation rather than improvised in the manner of some earlier geographical works - it was not unknown for the same view to appear in more than one guise. Georg Braun wrote the text and Ortelius himself - who travelled through Italy with the artist Joris Hoefnagel - supplied a significant proportion of the material, which was then engraved by Simon Novellanus and Frans Hogenburg. Later contributors included Abraham Hogenberg and Jacob Hoefnagel, who continued their fathers' work. There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and, according to Koeman 'of secondary importance') to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary.

MESUA, J. (also YAHYA IBN MASAWAIH)
medicamentorum, Libri duo. Quorum prior Antidotarium, posterior de appropriatis vulgo inscribitur... His accessere Plantarum in Libro simplicium descriptarum imagines ex vivo expressae... 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 dise … [Click Below for Full Description]
