BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and Frans HOGENBERG (fl. c. 1540-1590).
Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. - Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 4/8 x 18 inches to the neat line). Fine engraving of the coats of arms of the county of Hainaut, the descriptive text within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (tears in the lower and outer margin affecting the image). A magnificent engraving of the coats of arms of the county of Hainaut in the Low Countries, from the very rare German edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. Hainaut became a part of the Habsburg Netherlands by the Treaty of Arras in 1482, and of the Spanish Netherlands from 1556. In 1579 Hainaut was a member of the Union of Arras which submitted to the rule of Habsburg Spain, while the northern Union of Utrecht formed the Dutch Republic in 1581.

Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town.

Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates " contained literally hundreds … [Click Below for Full Description]

Not long before this view was engraved, in 1572 representatives of all the cities of Holland, with the exception of Amsterdam, as well as the Watergeuzen, represented by William II de la Marck, gathered in Dordrecht to hold the Eerste Vrije Statenvergadering ("First Assembly of the Free States"), also known as the Unie van Dordrecht ("Union of Dordrecht"). During the meeting, the organization and financing of the rebellion against the Spanish occupation was discussed, Phillip II was unanimously denounced and William of Orange was chosen as the new stadtholder and recognized as the official leader of the revolt. Orange was promised financial support of his struggle against the Spanish and at his own request, freedom of religion was declared in all of Holland. The gathering is regarded as the first important step towards the free and independent Dutch Republic. Other gatherings such as the Union of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 2/8 x 15 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved views of the cities of Autun and Nevers, the titles within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches and decorated with the Royal arms, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (one or two pale marginal stains). Two magnificent views of the ancient town of Roman town of Autun, and Nevers on the Loire, from the very rare German edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. The "Civitates…" was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates…" contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known. Even for the larger, important cities, the "Civitates…" is of the utmost importance to the history of their topography..

By the time of this view Bergen-op-Zoom was one of the main armories and arsenals of the United Provinces. It naturally defended by marshland, and difficult to besiege because of its access to the sea.During the Eighty Years War the Dutch were able to hold Bergen-op-Zoom against seiges by Alessandro Farnese first in 1587, and by Ambrosio Spinola in 1622. Both sieges were unsuccessful and Bergen op Zoom got the nickname La Pucelle or The Virgin as it was never thoroughly beseiged.

A wealthy city, with its roots in the wool and textile industries, the Union of Atrecht (the Dutch name for Arras) was signed there in January of 1579 by the Catholic principalities of the Low Countries that remained loyal to king Philip II of Habsburg; it provoked the declaration of the Union of Utrecht, unifying the northern provinces of the Netherlands, until then under the control of Habsburg Spain. The Union of Utrecht is regarded as the foundation of the Republic of the Seven United Provinces, which was not recognized by the Spanish Empire until the Twelve Years' Truce in 1609.

[BARNAUD (Nicolas)]
s.l., [Genève] : [Guillaume de Laimarie ?], 1582. 1 vol. (125 x 192 mm), [8] ff., 647 pp., [5] ff., dans une reliure janséniste en plein maroquin rouge, initiales CR (pour Paul Couturier du Royas) dorées au centre des plats, dos à nerfs, roulette dorée int., tr. dorées (Reliure moderne). Ce curieux livre est un satire du règne de Henry III, attribuée à Barnaud, théologien protestant qui a beaucoup voyagé pour chercher la pierre philosophale. Cette virulente charge anticatholique est attribuée à ce médecin de Crest en Dauphiné et fameux pamphlétaire réformé, qui y dénonce la débauche qui a cours dans le royaume de France, contre laquelle il engage le roi à cultiver ces trois perles que sont : la Parole de Dieu, la Noblesse et enfin le Tiers. Chacune de ces perles est incluse dans un étui qui en cache et offusque les vertus : la Parole de Dieu est ensevelie dns l'Eglise papale, la noblesse enfouie sous les intrigues de Cour, le Tiers ruiné par les charges. L'ouvrage a surtout retenu l'attention par le décompte précis que la première partie offre de la prétendue "prostitution monastique" : pour chaque ordre religieux, chaque archidiocèse, Barnaud prétend connaître le nombre de concubinaires, de "femmes putains sacerdotales", de bâtards de prêtres, et même de sodomites. Le tout se rattache à la grande tradition de la dénonciation des excès sexuels des clercs, ancienne, et reprise et amplifiée dans la Réforme. Originaire de Crest en Dauphiné, Nicolas Barnaud (1539- entre 1604 et 1607) était médecin et se convertit au calvinisme vers 1566, mais sa vie est très mal documentée, et … [Click Below for Full Description]

John Fogny, Rheims. First Catholic Bible (New Testament) in English. Collation: a-c4 d2 A-5D4 5E2; [28], 745, [27] pp. With woodcut initials, head and tail pieces throughout. 1 vols. 4to (8-3/4 x 6-1/4 inches). THE FIRST ROMAN CATHOLIC NEW TESTAMENT IN ENGLISH. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HAWKINS, Sir John.
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 Englis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Claude DUCHET (Duchetti, 1579-1586) - Antonio LAFRERI (Lafrery 1512-1577) - Ambrosius BRAMBILLA (bis nach 1599).
Rom, . 1582 - Radierung (knapp beschnitten und alt aufgezogen, sehr leicht fleckig, ansonsten gut erhalten) 53,5 x 39 cm (21 x 15.3 inches). A broadside from the series Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae by Claude Duchetti and Antonio Lafreri shows the interior of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Seltener Einblattdruck mit Innenansicht der Sixtinischen Kapelle während einer Zeremonie aus einer von Claude Duchet erweiterten Ausgabe von Antonio Lafreris Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae (erstmals 1548). Am oberen und unteren Blattrand befinden sich der Titel und eine beschreibende Legende zu den einzelnen dargestellten Personengruppen und ihrer Rangfolge. Signiert und datiert (1582) in der Kartusche rechts unten. Antonio Lafreri (Lafrery, 1512-1577) war ein bedeutender Verleger und Drucker von Atlanten sowie von Stadtansichten des alten und modernen Roms, die sich vor allem bei Reisenden großer Beliebtheit erfreuten. Der vorliegende Druck stammt von seinem Neffen Claude Duchet, der die Werkstatt 1577 übernommen hatte. Der Stecher des Blattes Ambrosius Brambilla arbeitete häufig mit Lafreri und später auch mit dessen Neffen Duchet zusammen, so u.a. für den von Antonio Lafreri edierten Band Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae, der nach dessen Tod 1577 von Claude Duchet wiederaufgelegt und ergänzt wurde. Im Zuge dieser Maßnahme kommt auch das vorliegende Blatt mit der Sixtinischen Kapelle in die Sammlung (Kat. Ausst. Mirror of marvelous Rome 1979, N-5).

GONZAGA Curzio
(In fine:) Mantova, Giacomo Ruffinello, 1582. in-4, ff. (4), 217, (1); leg. coeva p. perg. molle con legacci (difetti al dorso e alle cerniere). Titolo in elaborata bordura architettonica, testatina ripetuta ad ogni canto, iniziali e finaletti silogr.; testo su due colonne in car. corsivo. Prima edizione, assai rara, di questo poema di 36 canti in ottave, stimato all'epoca ed elogiato anche dal Tasso (cfr. Belloni, Il Seicento, p,156). "L'opera, scritta in funzione encomiastica per celebrare la famiglia Gonzaga, narra le imprese compiute e le prove superate dal prode cavaliere Gonzago per ottenere l'amore della donna amata Ippolita-Vittoria .complicata dall'interevento del soprannaturale, con maghi e potenze infernali" (DBIt., LVII, p. 706). L'autore (1530 ca.- 1599), "figliuolo di Luigi dell'antichissima Casa de' Principi di Mantova" a Roma divenne amico del card. Carlo Borromeo. Oltre il "Fidamante", compose una commedia ed una "Raccolta di rime" di tono petrarchesco. Discreto esempl. marginoso (piccoli difetti, lavori di tarlo nei margini e lievi aloni d'umido). Non in Gamba, Melzi e Ferrario. Brunet, II, 1665. BMCST 308. Adams G-856. Olschki, Choix XII, 18508. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
