        Metropolis Salisburgensis, continens primordia christianae religionis per Boiariam et loca quaedam vicina. - II. Derselbe. Bayrisch Stammen Buch. Der erst (ander) Theil Von den Abgestorbnen Fürsten, Pfaltz: March: Landt: und Burggraven, Graven, Landt und Freyherrn, auch andern alten Adelichen Thurnier Geschlechtern deß löblichen Fürsthenthumbs zu Bayrn. Zusammen 3 Teile in 1 Band.

      Ingolstadt David Sartorius und 1585-1586 1582 - 4 Bl., 826 (recte 328) S., 1 Bl. Errata; 18 Bl., 375 S., 2 Bl. (letztes weiß); 2 Bl., 410 S., 1 Bl. Mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titel von I und zwei wiederholten Wappenholzschnitten auf den Titeln zum Stammenbuch sowie dazu je 12 gestochenen Wappentafeln (wiederholt). Fol. (33,5 x 23,5 cm). Holzdeckelband der Zeit mit blindgeprägtem Schweinslederbezug und zwei intakten Schließen. Vereint die grundlegenden Hauptwerke Hundts zur bayerischen Geschichte in erster Ausgabe in einem Band. - Mit der "Metropolis Salisburgensis" lieferte er "eine Beschreibung der Kirchenprovinz und Urkundenedition zugleich. Dieses Werk sowie das bald folgende 'Bayrisch Stammen-Buch' (1585/86), die genealogische Beschreibung des bayerischen Adels, bildet nicht nur eine wertvolle Ergänzung zu Aventin, sondern den Beginn einer neuen historiographischen Epoche für Bayern, durch die begrenzte Zielsetzung, die Konzentration auf ein Teilgebiet, wie durch die dabei angewandte Methode des Urkundenbeweises" (Spindler II, 808). - Die lateinisch abgefaßte "Metropolis" befaßt sich mit der Geschichte der Bistümer Salzburg, Freising, Regensburg, Passau und Brixen sowie den Klöstern der Kirchenprovinz, das komplett deutschsprachige "Stammen Buch" liefert "eine Art Matrikel des Turnieradels, sorgfältig und mit kritischer Gründlichkeit gearbeitet, für Hundts Zeit ausgezeichnet durch ein ungewöhnliches Maß von Urkundenverwendung. Viele Angaben sind durch keine andere Quelle überliefert. Der 1. Teil behandelt über 120 abgestorbene, der 2. Teil über 50 damals noch blühende Adelsgeschlechter" (NDB X, 65). Hundt verfaßte noch einen dritten Teil des "Stammen Buchs", der aber erst 1830 im Druck vorgelegt werden konnte. - Hundt (1514-1588) gehörte unter Herzog Albrecht V. zu den einflußreichsten Beratern der bayerischen Politik, nach seiner aktiven politischen Karriere fand er die Zeit für die vorliegenden historischen Werke. Verheiratet war er in dritter Ehe mit Ursula, einer Tochter von Simprecht von Benzenau (Pientzenaw), Burgherr von Kemnat und Vogt von Kloster Irsee (deren Genealogie denn auch im zweiten Teil recht ausführlich behandelt wird). - Der erste Titel ohne das weiße Schlußblatt. Das "Stammen Buch" am Ende beider Teile mit den sehr seltenen 12 gestochenen Wappentafeln (beidseitig bedruckt und numeriert 1-23) mit Wappen der im Werk erwähnten Adelsgeschlechter. Die Wappen wurden wohl nur wenigen Exemplaren beigegeben, lediglich in einem der digitalisierten Exemplare der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek ist die Folge ebenfalls vorhanden. Auch den bei Lentner und Pfister angebotenen Exemplaren fehlten die Tafeln. - Etwas gebräunt, die Ränder leicht fleckig, im unteren Rand stellenweise gering wasserrandig. Der schöne zeitgenössische Prägeband leicht berieben und wenig fleckig, Bezug an den Stehkanten teils etwas aufgeplatzt, eine Schließbefestigung etwas lädiert. - Zur Provenienz: Titel mit zeitgenössischem Besitzvermerk "Sigersreiter" (?), die Beschreibung der Familie "Ahaimer" (Stammen Buch II, 53) mit interessanten genealogischen Ergänzungen einer Hand des frühen 17. Jahrhunderts, wohl von Georg Achaz Riederer, Sohn des Hanns Georg Riederer, Forstmeister und Rat zu Burghausen: Neben seinem Namen steht: "Ich hab noch so lang es Gott gefellig ist". *I.

        Della Metamorfosi cioe Trasformatione del Virtuoso.

      In 4° (mm 197x144); legatura recente in pergamena molle realizzata con materiale antico; pp. (12), 319, (1) segnate †4, *², A-Rr4. Con stemma del dedicatario sul titolo e marca tipografica al verso dell'ultima carta. Fregio tipografico al verso della 3 carta preliminare. Grandi iniziali figurate. Ottima copia."PRIMA ED ASSAI RARA EDIZIONE" (G. Passano, I Novellieri italiani in prosa, Torino, 1878, pp. 563-565) e primo libro stampato da Tintinnassi ad Orvieto.Alla dedica di Ascanio Giacobacci a Giacomo Buoncompagno, duca di Sora, figlio naturale di Gregorio XIII e grande mecenate, segue l'avviso de L'autore a un suo amico, con cui questi accompagna il dono del libro e spiega di non voler rivelare il proprio nome. L'opera, fortunatissima, venne ristampata con le correzioni dell'autore a Firenze dai Giunti l'anno successivo e, quindi, di nuovo nel '91, nel '98, nel 1608 e nel 1615 sempre dai Giunti. Fu tradotta in francese (La metamorphose du vertueux) e stampata a Parigi nel 1611."Questo libro... è un romanzo degno in molte parti della elegante penna del Firenzuola. In esso l'autore narra, sotto finto nome, che Acrisio povero e costumato giovinetto di San Marcello, vinto dalle preghiere della madre, lascia la sua terra natia e la fanciulla del suo cuore, la virtuosa Clori, per recarsi a Napoli a cercarvi le paterne ricchezze. Riconosciuto da un suo parente le recupera, e lieto si rimette in via per la patria: senonché, prima di giungervi, per certi incantesimi della figliuola di quel suo parente, è mutato in serpe. Molti sono i casi, che, ora lieti ora tristi, gli accadono durante la trasformazione, né egli puote ritornare alla primiera forma, che presso l'amata giovane lasciata in duro abbandono. La quale muore poco appresso, dopo averlo ripreso aspramente de' suoi errori, e datigli molti avvisi salutari ed esortazioni al vivere virtuoso. Questa è l'orditura del romanzo, il cui scopo morale è che non la donna di città , in cui è simboleggiata la virtù speculativa, né le giovani della campagna, che figurano la morale, ma la sola Clori, per la quale s'intende la grazia divina, ci può rendere la divina immagine. Ed affinché piacevole e fruttuosa ad un tempo ne riuscisse la lettura, ai ragionamenti morali e teologici di cui è arricchito, volle l'autore far succedere bellissime descrizioni della montagna pistoiese, amene Novelle, e squisite ottave. Aggiungendovi eziandio i leggiadri madrigali, e gli allegri rispetti che, forse da fanciullo, aveva udito cantare da vergini labbra all'aere puro de' suoi colli nativi. Nelle tredici Novelle sparse nell'opera (cioè 12 nel libro III ed una nel libro IV) sono con bel garbo narrati avvenimenti di streghe e strane fattucchiere" (Passano, op. cit.).I racconti degli strani incontri del protagonista con demoni, streghe, santi e donne di ogni tipo e la narrazione dei casi capitati ad Acrisio sotto forma di serpe, come il rapimento da parte di un'aquila, nonché le varie digressioni e novelle, sono svolti con grande garbo e freschezza.Lorenzo Gerbi firmò tutta la sua produzione con due pseudonimi, quello di Lorenzo Selva, usato per le opere profane, e quello di Evangelista Marcellino per gli scritti religiosi. Egli, predicatore francescano e cronista dell'ordine, nacque in Toscana nel 1530 e morì nel 1593 (cfr. V. Capponi, Biografia Pistoiese, Pistoia, 1878, p. 253; inoltre L. Wadding, Scriptores Ordinis Minorum, Roma, 1906, p. 74).Rosato Tintinnassi, nativo di Perugia, si trasferì ad Orvieto nel 1580. Quivi rilevò la bottega di Luciano Pasini e fu attivo fino al 1585, distinguendosi per la grande cura editoriale delle sue edizioni (complessivamente nove, tutte in volgare). Secondo Gianolio Dalmazzo (Il libro e l'arte della stampa, Torino, 1926, p. CCVI) dal 1582 egli lavorò in società con Baldo Salviani. Utilizzò due marche: la prima, quella qui presente, rappresenta del fumo che si leva verso il sole in un paesaggio con alberi entro cornice figurata e con il motto "Et caelum terrena petunt"; la seconda mostra tre piante di cardi che separano quattro piante di granturco e riporta il motto "Nec me spineda retardant".R.

        Kunst- und Welt-Erfahrner General-Ingenieur. Das ist: Follständige Unterweisung, wie ein jede Statt, Schloss und Pass nach der heutigen neuen Art, ..., mit allerhand Gattungen Schantzen zubefestigen und zubeschützen. ...[Zürich], Johann Melchior Hardmeyer, 1677. 4to. With 23 single-page, 1 slightly larger folding and 2 double-page engraved figures. 18th-century(?) blind-tooled half sheepskin(?), with an armorial portrait roll near the spine on each board.

      Jähns, p. 1375; Jordan 1582 (2 copies); VD17, 7:665090V (1 copy). Rare first and only edition of a brief course in the art of fortification, with 26 excellent engraved figures, not naming the author, but attributed to Johann Ardüser (1584/85-1665), mathematician city engineer of Zürich, who also worked as a fortifications engineer in Naples, Venice, Sweden and Württemberg. The plates show many fortification plans, both symmetrical and asymmetrical, but also perspective views, profiles and diagrams. The text is attributed to Ardüser based on an early manuscript note in one copy, but the dedication is signed from Zürich by Caspar Hardmeyer, presumably a member of the Zürich printing and publishing family of that name. Since most of the engraved figures are printed in pairs on double-page copper plates, a pair can be inserted as one double-page or two single-page plates, so that the number of plates reported varies, but a complete set contains figures A-Cc. The double-page plate with figures Bb and Cc is shaved at the fore-edge, very slightly affecting the figures. Textleaves are very slightly browned with an occasional minor spot, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The binding is rubbed, with the backstrip tattered and partly lost and with a few worm holes, but the sewing structure remains sound. Rare first and only edition of a course in fortification by the Zürich city engineer.

Encadernação recente em pergaminho rígido ao gosto da época com rótulo vermelho na lombada. Ilustrado com um mapa [de 3 ?] desdobrável da autoria de Ortelius: « Orbis terrarum hunc tÿpum, secundum Pomponii Melae | traditionem delineabat Ab[raam] Ortelius 1582» (26x18 cm). Sabin não refere obra e não refere mapa. Obra contém o mais antigo texto geográfico conhecido escrito em latim. Obra clássica muito reeditada: foi impressa pela primeira vez em 1471, com oito edições incunabulares subsequentes, enquanto que até 1530 houve praticamente uma nova edição a cada dois anos. Obra de importância para a compreensão do mundo Renascentista. Embora nesta obra o autor se ter essencialmente preocupado com o mundo tal como era conhecido pelos gregos e romano, também abrangeu partes de África e um conhecimento da Índia. Esta edição não é referida por Sabin. Tem um mapa dobrável que é uma interpretação de Abraão Ortelius do mundo descrito por Pomponio Mela, intercalado em uma página desdobrável hors-text, com o título: «Orbis terrarum hunc tÿpum, secundum Pomponii Melae | traditionem delineabat Ab [raam] Ortelius 1582» (26x18 cm). Possivelmente, faltando dois mapas adicionais neste exemplar. [EN] This is the oldest surviving geographical text written in Latin. It enjoyed readership for centuries in manuscript and was first printed in 1471 with eight subsequent incunabula editions, while in the 16th century to 1530 there was virtually a new edition every other year. It was a book of interest and importance for understanding the Renaissance world. Although Mela's work is solely concerned with the world as known by Greeks and Romans, one should remember that their world did encompass portions of Africa and a knowledge of India. This edition is not refered by Sabin. It is 2 volumes bound in one volume with a folding map [of 3 maps??] which is an interpretation of Abraam Ortelius of the world described by Pomponio Mela. It is interspersed in a folding page hors-text with the title «Orbis terrarum hunc tÿpum, secundum Pomponii Melae | traditionem delineabat Ab[raam] Ortelius 1582» (26x18 cm).

        De la Vérité de la Religion Chrestienne: contre les Athées, Epicuriens, Juifs, Mahumedistes, et autres Infidèles. Seconde édition reveûe par l'Autheur.

      A Anvers, de l'Imprimerie de Christofle Plantin, 1582. - in-8. 16ff. 774pp. 1f. Plein maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, double encadrement de filets dorés sur les plats avec le chiffre entrelacé "FMDB" au centre des plats (reliure de l'époque dans le style Henri III). Très rare édition de l'un des plus célèbres textes français d'inspiration protestante. Paru chez Plantin près de dix ans après le massacre de la Saint Barthélémy, cet ouvrage qui affirmait la supériorité de la religion chrétienne sur les autres religions, en particulier l'islam, fit l'unanimité aussi bien chez les protestants que chez les catholiques. Il est dédié à Henry, roi de Navarre et futur Henri IV, dont l'auteur fut l'un des amis et conseillers les plus proches. Cette seconde édition est la première au format in-8. Elle est aussi rare que l'originale parue l'année précédente, au format in-4, chez le même imprimeur. Rousseurs assez prononcées mais bel exemplaire relié en maroquin rouge au tournant du 17e siècle. Il porte un monogramme doré au centre de chaque plat "FMDB" ainsi qu'une inscription manuscrite sur le dernier contreplat: "Besiers 1623. Bonnefous". Il s'agit probablement d'un membre de la famille de Bonnefous qui donna plusieurs juristes à la ville de Béziers, au 17e et au 18e. Brunet, III, 1911. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Typis Zachariae Lehmani, 1582., Vitaebergae: - 16 cm. Small 8vo. 75, [1] pp. Signatures: A-E? (A2 missigned A3; E7. Lacks E8 [blank]). Plain wrappers. Laid into quarter green morocco, cloth sides, folding box [23 cm.]. Occasional early ink marginalia. RARE: no record of copies found on market. First edition, one of two known issues. VERY RARE & EARLY ACCOUNT ON PERSPIRATION, CRYING & BLOOD. A classical account on perspiration, crying, and blood [all fluids]. O'Malley writes for the DSB, "such then curious but rational problems as why boys ought not to be forbidden to cry, why sobbing usually accompanies weeping" â€" apparently referring to this work. Thorndike, who notes the author's work on the classical writers, Galen and Rasis, notes further that he was not a physician who ascribed to the occult sciences: "he also discussed such questions as why boys should not be forbidden to cry, why sobbing generally goes with tears. . ." [p. 230]. The Bayerische Staatsbibliothek copy has an added 2 leaves, marked as signature "[-]2", which is a preface by Paulo Alberto [Paulus Albertus], not available in this copy, but supplied in facs. The text refers to bloody sweat, noted by Stolberg, "Modern medicine acknowledges such phenomenona as 'hematidrosis' but premodern accounts of bloody sweating may well have to be taken in a much wider sense, including what physicians today would consider as bleeding disorders." â€" Michael Stolberg, "Sweat. Learned Concepts and Popular Perceptions, 1500-1800," within: Manfred Horstmanshoff, Helen King, & Claus Zittel (editors), Blood, Sweat and Tears: The Changing Concepts of Physiology from Antiquity into Early Modern Europe, Brill, 2012 (p. 509). Alberti, born in 1540, Naumburg, Germany, a year later his father died. He and his mother relocated to Nuremberg (1541). Remarkably, the city paid for Alberti's education, including his doctoral studies at the University of Wittenberg (1574), rising to become Professor of Philosophy and Physics in Wittenberg, then Professor of Medicine, and in 1582 becoming physician to Duke Friedrich Wilhelm of Saxony. He last residence was in Dresden where he passed away. He wrote tracts on the pancreas (1578), on the lacrimal apparatus, De Lacrimis, (1581). In 1585 he published, Historia plerarunque partium humani corporis, membratim scripta, et in usum tyronum retractatius edita, Vitaebergae, excudebant Haeredes Iohannis Cratonis. ". . . some years later the German anatomist Salomon Alberti (1540â€"1600) published his studies of the lacrimal apparatus in a volume entitled De Lacrimis." "Initially, tears were considered to be more or less similar in composition to other body fluids, in particular sweat and urine." â€" Ad Vingerhoets, Why Only Humans Weep: Unravelling the Mysteries of Tears, 2013, pp. 51, but does not mention this text. â€" DSB.

        Opus novum, cunctis de sanitate tuenda, ac vita producenda studiosis apprime necessarium; in quatuor libros digestum.

      Basel Henricpetri 1582 - (31 x 20,5 cm). (20) 383 S. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt, Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem letzten Blatt, wenigen Textholzschnitten und zahlreichen figürlichen Holzschnitt-Initialen. Halblederband des 19. Jahrhunderts. Zweite Ausgabe seines bekannten diätetischen Werkes, erstmals 1580 in Rom erschienen. "This posthumously published work deals largely with hygiene, diet, and geriatrics" (Heirs). - "Famous as a philosopher and physician, Cardano was one of the most interesting personalities of the Italian Renaissance and one of the most learned men of his time. He covered almost every branch of knowledge in his writings; philosophy, mathematics, physics, hygiene, medicine, astronomy and astrology, and theology. He was an early follower of Paracelsus and his advanced thinking as well as his disputations and obstinate character made many enemies for him" (Heirs 246). Cardanus versucht, ebenso wie Paracelsus, die Theosophie, die Astrologie und die Kabbalah mit der Heilkunde zu vereinen. Seine Grundsätze beruhen auf dem Einfluss der Gestirne und der Kraft der Zahlen. Er nimmt auch nur zwei "Qualitäten" an, von denen er alles ableitet, eine warme und eine feuchte. - Der Titelholzschnitt zeigt ein Porträt des Verfassers in prächtigem Rollwerkrahmen. - Exlibris. Erstes und letztes Blatt angefalzt. Titel verso mit Notizen von alter Hand. Stellenweise gering gebräunt und etwas wasserrandig bzw. braunfleckig. Oberes Kapital bestoßen.

        Atiquae Urbis perfecta imago accuratissime delineata, iuxsta antiqua vestigia Ambrosius Brambilla pictor in banc formam reduxit, et aeneis tijpis incidit: Anno Domini 1582.

      "Magnifico esemplare della seconda edizione della rarissima pianta archeologica incisa da Ambrogio Brambilla per l'editore Claudio Duchetti. Esemplare di secondo stato, con indirizzo di Giovanni Orlandi e la data 1602. Descrizione tratta da S. Bifolco- F. Ronca, ""Cartografia e Topografia Italiana del XVI secolo. Catalogo ragionato delle opere a stampa"" che sarà pubblicato nel 2018. Titolo & iscrizioni A sinistra al centro Atiquae Urbis perfecta imago accuratissime delineata, iuxsta antiqua vestigia Ambrosius Brambilla pictor in banc formam reduxit, et aeneis tijpis incidit: Anno Domini 1582. A destra in basso in un cartiglio legenda numerica di 100 rimandi a luoghi e monumenti notabili, distribuita su tre colonne, cui segue CLAUDII DUCHETI FORMIS ROMAE MDLXXXII. Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro con il nome dei punti cardinali SEPTENTRIO, MERIDIES, ORIENS, OCCIDENS, il nord a sinistra. Carta priva di scala grafica. Acquaforte e bulino, dimensioni mm 380x484. Pianta archeologica a proiezione verticale con elevazione dei soli monumenti antichi, incisa da Ambrogio Brambilla per l'editore Claudio Duchetti. Si tratta di una fedele replica della pianta del Duperac-Lafreri del 1573. Con la divisione ereditaria della tipografia Lafreri del 1581, la lastra incisa da Duperaca viene in possesso di Stefano Duchetti, come risulta nell'inventario del 1581 (n. 31) dove è descritta come "Roma con li monti dif.o Imperaiale". Da qui probabilmente nasce l'esigenza per Claudio Duchetti di far incidere una nuova lastra che rappresenti la pianta archeologica di Roma. Il Brambilla implementa la legenda, portandola a 100 rimandi numerici, contenuti nel cartiglio da una forma molto similare al modello. La pianta è inserita in alcune copie dello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. La lastra fu ereditata da Giacomo Gherardi ed è inserita nel catalogo della vedova di questi, Quintilia Lucidi, del 17-19 ottobre 1598 (n. 350 descritta come "Roma antica reale"). Infine venne acquisita, nel 1602, da Giovanni Orlandi che la ristampò inalterata con la sola aggiunta del proprio imprint. Stati & edizioni: 1°: come descritto, CLAUDII DUCHETI FORMIS ROMAE MDLXXXII. 2°: aggiunto nel cartiglio l'imprint Ioannes Orlandi formis romae 1602.

        Histoire de l'expedition Chrestienne au royaume de la Chine, entreprinse par les PP. de la compagnie de Iesus.Lyons, for Horace Cardon, 1616. 8vo. With engraved title-page and full-page engraved portrait of prince Philippe Guillaume of Orange, and large folding plan (42.5 x 15 cm). Contemporary overlapping vellum.

      De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, col. 240; Cordier, Sinica, col. 810; Löwendahl 58; Lust 839; cf. Hanotiau 14 (2nd French edition). The first French edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci, an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault, who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). Binding rubbed; folding plan with clean tear and slightly wrinkled; some occasional staining. Good copy.

Very scarce first edition of the important Rheims New Testament, the first Roman Catholic version in English, translated from the Vulgate.Like the Geneva Bible, the Rheims New Testament was "produced by religious refugees who carried their faith and work abroad. Since the English Protestants used their vernacular translations, not only as the foundation of their own faith but as siege artillery in the assault on Rome, a Catholic translation became more and more necessary in order that the faithful could answer, text for text, against the 'intolerable ignorance and importunity of the heretics of this time.' The chief translator was Gregory Martin(c. 1542-1582)? Technical words were transliterated rather than translated. Thus many new words came to birth? Not only was [Martin] steeped in the Vulgate, he was, every day, involved in the immortal liturgical Latin of his church. The resulting Latinisms added a majesty to his English prose, and many a dignified or felicitous phrase was silently lifted by the editors of the King James's Version, and thus passed into the language" (Great Books and Book Collectors 108). While Martin was responsible for the translation, the controversial textual annotations in defense of Catholic doctrine are attributed to Richard Bristow, one of the supervisors of the project; most copies of this edition were purportedly suppressed and destroyed because of these notes (some of which were removed from later editions). The New Testament was issued separately and first, in the hope that its successful sale would finance prompt production of the Old Testament; the two-volume Old Testament did not, however, appear until 1609-10 due to insufficient funds.

        Antique Print-NETHERLANDS-FRIESLAND-GRONINGEN-Ortelius-c. 1582

      - Antique print, titled: 'Oost ende West Vrieslandts beschrijvinghe. Utriusque Frisiorum Regionis Noviss: Descriptio. 1568.' - A nice full color example of Ortelius' map of Groningen, Friesland and part of Drenthe and Overijssel. Also part of Germany is shown. Including a larger compass rose, sailing ships and an elaborate cartouche. Latin tekst on verso. Copperplate engraving / etching with hand colouring on hand laid paper. Description: Source unknown, to be determined.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Abraham Ortelius' after an anonymous artist. Abraham Ortelius was born 1528 in Antwerp. He studied mathematics, Greek and Latin and travelled a lot across Europe. He established a business in dealing with books and drawing maps. His first remarkable map was a 8 sheet world map in the year 1564, but only three copies have survived. In 1570 he issued the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", the first modern "Atlas" with uniformly sized maps in a systematic collection. The term "Atlas" was not used until Mercator introduced it 20 years later. Most of the maps in Theatrum have been engraved by Frans Hogenberg. At the time of publication, the atlas was the most expensive book ever printed. Nevertheless it was a big success and around 7000 copies have been printed until 1612 in many editions and six different languages. Beside the Theatrum, Ortelius compiled a series of historical maps and published it in the "Parergon Theatri" which was bound with the Theatrum from 1579 onwards or published separately. Condition: Good, given age. Light soiling near the bottom of the middle fold. A few small spots. Middle fold partly reinforced on verso. Original middle fold as issued. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: BG-B3-34 The overall size is ca. 22.6 x 16.3 inch.

        Two manuscript estate indentures relating to Hawkins's property at Chatham, established as a Royal Dockyard in 1567. Signed by Sir John Hawkins and Dame Margaret Hawkins respectively.

      Chatham, Kent: , 1582 & 1599. 2 sheets vellum, folio (measuring 424 x 569 mm and 335 x 503 mm respectively). Manuscript in an English secretary hand. Both with wax seals on vellum tags, that of 1582 bearing Hawkins's "merchant's mark" and that of 1599 his arms (sable on a point wavy, a lion passant or, in chief three bezants, crest, a demi Moor in his proper colour, bound and captive, with annulets in his arms and ears). Prickings visible along left margin (made as a guide for ruling the sheets). Creased where folded, only light soiling, seal on document of 1599 partially cracked but whole, overall both indentures in excellent condition. A superb example of the signature of one of the great sailors of Elizabethan England, the first document showing him acquiring land at Chatham, established as a Royal Dockyard by Elizabeth I in 1567. Sir John Hawkins (1532-1595), merchant, privateer and naval commander, was cousin to Sir Francis Drake "but [Hawkins] arguably knew more about seamanship and did more for his country than Drake. During several voyages in the 1560s Hawkins demonstrated to his countrymen that good profits could be made trading in the Spanish ports of the West Indies. He also introduced his queen and his fellow merchants to the loathsome business of slave trading, where even greater profits could be made by men whose consciences were not of exceeding tenderness" (Harry Kelsey, Sir John Hawkins: Queen Elizabeth's Slave Trader, Yale 2003, p. xiii). Hawkins played a pivotal role in the slave trade, proving "the possibility of extending the long-established English triangular trade via Guinea to Brazil - in which his father had taken a pioneering role thirty years earlier - to a new, and readily available commodity, namely African slaves, and to a new Caribbean destination, where Spanish colonists welcomed slaves as an important constituent element in their internal economy - a valuable, harder-working, and longer-living antidote to the chronic wastage of the aboriginal population, and furnished more cheaply than their own compatriots managed via Seville" (ODNB). The earlier of the two indentures is dated 22 January 1582, signed "John Hawkyns", and bears his wax seal: with this document William Barnes of Chatham (a "chief master" - or captain - in Elizabeth's navy), conveys to Sir John Hawkins of London, then treasurer of the navy, a house, storehouse, two yards, an adjoining garden near Chatham Street, together with a section of land called "The Quay" and some marshlands both belonging to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, altogether procured for £100. The document further mentions a bond in £160 for quiet possession of the house by Peter Hills of Rotherhithe in Surrey, yeoman, to William Barnes (30 January 1577), and recites the lease made 15 October 1545 for The Quay and marsh by George Bowne, master of St. Batholomew's Hospital in Kent, to Walter Hayte of Rochester, tailor, for 99 years, which was by 1582 vested in William Barnes. The witnesses are listed as Walter Portryff, Thomas Maynerd and Miles Toogye. The attached red wax seal bears a fine impression of Hawkins' "merchant's mark" - the design appearing to incorporate a hawk's talon, presumably a play on his name - and a fine example of his signature. In the most famous portrait of Hawkins, at the National Maritime Museum, Hawkins is pictured holding a seal on a ring but close inspection shows that it is not the same as either of the two seals used on these documents. William Barnes would have been well known to Hawkins as he was one of two "chief masters" - the other being Thomas Gray - of the group appointed by Elizabeth to the special investigation commission that was looking into the state of the navy. ODNB records that "Hawkins bought a house in Deptford, and soon afterwards another in the city, in the parish of St Dunstan-in-the-East, which he retained for the remainder of his life" but would presumably also have had lodgings at Chatham while he oversaw the fitting-out of ships. Interestingly, Saint Bartholomew's Hospital, alluded to in both documents, had, following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, been reduced to a "poor show of a decayed hospital" (William Lambarde, Perambulation of Kent,1576); however, when Chatham became a Royal Dockyard in 1567 the meagre estates which had formerly only supported a decayed hospital became more valuable. In fact property values rose to such an extent that an attempt was made to seize the land for the Crown. Dated 20 May 1599, the second document records Dame Margaret Hawkins (d.1619), leasing The Quay and the marsh to the governors of the hospital of Sir John Hawkins in Chatham. A fine example of her signature at foot. A deed of ratification of leasehold estate and surrender of interest in the head-lease, the text recites the lease for 99 years by George Bowne (which subsequently came to Sir John Hawkins, who built a dwelling house on part of the land) and the grant of a lease by the feoffees of such parts of the premises in which Sir John Hawkins claimed a freehold estate (Henry Palmer, kt, Thomas Hughes, Hugh Vaughan and Richard Reynoll, esqs), to Christopher Chapman, merchant, of the messuage, gardens, wharf, storehouse and half an acre of marsh for 21 years from 25 Mar 1597 at £8 (1 May1597). Dame Margaret now ratifies Christopher Chapman's leasehold interest and, as the executrix of Sir John Hawkins, assigns to the governors such interest as she may have in the quay and marsh under the head-lease of 1545. The witnesses are recorded as Anthony Lewes, Richard Holman and John Cureton. The seal attached to this second document shows the arms of Sir John Hawkins and a fine example of Margaret Hawkins's signature. Chatham is still home to the Sir John Hawkins Hospital - an almshouse for sailors - the brainchild of Hawkins, conceived some time during 1593; "the institution received a royal charter in 1594" (Kelsey). It is possible that some of the land purchased in the present indenture of 1582 was used as the site of the Hospital; while the indenture of 1599 indicates the expansion of the Hospital. Hawkins was also a co-founder of the famous Chatham Chest, "a fund for disabled seamen which was founded in 1590 by Drake, Sir John Hawkins and Lord Howard of Effingham. Seamen paid 6d. a month from their pay into the fund; the chest in which the money was kept is now in the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich" (Uden & Cooper, A Dictionary of British Ships and Seamen, 1980, p. 83). Hawkins's position in British history has been summed up succinctly: "This many-talented man was one of the greatest of his age: seaman, navigator, strategist, administrator, businessman, Member of Parliament, innovator and patriot" (ibid).
