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 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..

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 x 18 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved images of the cities of Chartres and Chateaudun in France, the titles within fine mannerist cartouches, decorated with the Royal arms and the arms of the cities, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (margins a bit browned). Exceptionally fine and detailed views of the Cities of Chartres and Chateaudun in France, 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. This pair of magnificent views show the cities during the reign of Henri III of France, shortly before Henri IV was crowned in Chartes in 1589. Buildings and roads are depicted in minute detail, including the famous cathedral where Henri IV was crowned.

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 x 16 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Bergen-op-Zoom, the title within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche and decorated with the Royal arms and the arms of the city, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (one or two pale marginal stains). A magnificent view of the town of Bergen-op-Zoom in the southern Netherlands, 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. 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.

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.

An exceptionally fine and detailed view of Bristol, the important and ancient city on the banks of the River Avon, 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.

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 3/8 x 18 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Arras, the title and key within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, 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 marginal stains). A magnificent view of the city of Arras in northern France, 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. 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]

(Bible, New Testament,)
Rheims: John Fogny, 1582. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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 English … [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). Literatur: Claude Duchet: AKL XXX, 2001, 201 - Ambrosius Brambilla: AKL XIII, 1996, 575; ThB IV, 1910, 521 - Antoine Lafreri: AKLONLINE; ThB … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Gessner, Conrad; Pseud.:] Euonymus Philiater.
4to. 2 pts. in 1 vol. (8), 368, (18) pp., final blank. (8), 305 (but: 307), (13) pp. Both title pages printed in red and black. With 2 different woodcut title vignettes and numerous text woodcuts. Contemp. blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards with bevelled edges. Remains of clasps. All edges red. Principal alchemistical work of the Swiss physician, botanist and zoologist Gessner: the first complete German edition of the "Thesaurus de remediis secretis", translated by the Zürich theologian Johann Rudolf Landenberger and the physician Johann Jakob Nüscheler. The first part had appeared in German in 1555; only in 1569 did Caspar Wolf edit the posthumous Latin first edition of the second part, based on Gessner's notes. "This collection of recipes for medicines, the distillation of essential oils, and winemaking was first published under the pseudonym Euonymus Philiatrus because Gesner considered it not quite up to his own exact standards. It became his most popular book" (Wellisch). The woodcuts picture various destillation apparatus. - Binding rather rubbed; interior somewhat fingerstained; paper defects to the final three leaves of the index professionally restored (including portions of lost text). As always, the year of printing on the title page, stated as "1582" in Roman numerals, has been corrected to "1583" in slightly different ink. Contemp. ownership of the surgeon Christoff Zirckendorffer in red and brown ink ("A[nn]o 16[0]1 Jar") on the flyleaf. VD 16, G 1809, ZV 25033. Graesse III, 69. Wellisch A 32.18 & B2.14.

MUZIO Girolamo
Con un trattato, intitolato la Varchina: doue si correggono con molte belle ragioni, non pochi errori del Varchi, del Casteluetro, e del Ruscelli. Et alcune bellissime annotationi sopra il Petrarca. In Vinegia, appresso Pietro Dusinelli, 1582. in-8, ff. (12), 216, legatura moderna in pergamena rigida, titolo al dorso. Marca edit. al tit., iniziali istoriate; precede il testo dedica dell'opera ad Antonio Eudemonoiani. Prima edizione della raccolta postuma curata da Giulio Cesare Muzio, figlio dell'autore, comprendente: una lettera al Cesano e al Cavalcanti sulla superiorità dello stile del Boccaccio su quello del Machiavelli; una a Renato Trivulzio, contro le tesi sostenute nel Cesano dal Tolomei; una del 1572 al Veniero per criticare l'edizione parigina del Corbaccio curata dal Corbinelli; la Varchina, composta tra il 1573 e il 1575, ove, a partire dalla polemica contro l'Ercolano del Varchi in nome dell'italianità della lingua volgare, il Muzio estende le proprie osservazioni alle opere del Castelvetro, del Dolce, del Ruscelli; infine un commento al Petrarca. I testi offrono un'importante testimonianza di quella che fu nel dibattito linguistico cinquecentesco la posizione rigorosamente anti-toscanista del Muzio (Padova 1496 - Firenze 1576, il cui vero cognome era Nuzio, oriundo di Capodistria, Justinopolis, per ciò detto Iustinopolitano), che fu invece a favore della ?lingua degli scrittori'. Buon esempl. (provenienza: nota di possesso del XVI secolo manoscritta al tit. di Giovanni Francesco Mariani). Gamba 1528. STC 458. Adams M-2075. Graesse 638. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
