RICCI, Matteo and Nicolas TRIGAULT.
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. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Nous autres, ignorants, étions perdus si ce livre ne nous eût relevés du bourbier... C'est notre bréviaire" (Essais II, 4) Renouard "Annales de l'Impr. des Estienne", p.160, n°17 ; Brunet IV, 738.

[BARNAUD (Nicolas)]
S.l., [Genève] : [Guillaume de Laimarie ?], 1582 1 vol. (125 x 192 mm), [8] ff., 647 pp., [5] ff., Maroquin rouge, initiales CR (pour Paul Couturier du Royas) dorées au centre des plats, dos à nerfs, roulette dorée int., tranches dorées (reliure moderne). Édition originale dédiée à Henri III. Ouvrage considéré comme l'un des grands textes polémiques du XVIe siècle, d'un grand intérêt pour l'histoire de France. L'auteur, huguenot, tente de démontrer au roi Henri III, que pour remédier au naufrage de son Royaume, il peut avoir recours à trois perles magiques : la Parole de Dieu, la vraie Noblesse et le Tiers-État, cachés dans un écrin qui n'est autre que le royaume de France. Il montre ainsi les véritables moeurs de son temps, dénonçant les biens du clergé, les vices de la noblesse, traite de la polygamie et de la prostitution et révèle plusieurs secrets relatifs au roi et à l'État. L'ouvrage, loué par Agrippa d'Aubigné, fut attribué à Nicolas Barnaud, alchimiste et médecin protestant de Crest en Dauphiné. Brunet suppose cependant qu'il serait de Nicolas Froumenteau «parce que le préambule et la fin de l'épître dédicatoire de novembre 1581 sont conçus absolument de même que le Secret des Finances de France». L'édition ne porte aucune adresse mais pourrait avoir été imprimée à La Rochelle dans un atelier typographique secret des réformés. Ex-libris manuscrit du XVIIe siècle en partie biffé, de la bibliothèque d'un couvent. Ce curieux livre est une satire du règne de Henry III, attribuée à Barnaud, théologien protestant qui a beaucoup voyagé pour chercher la pierre philosophale … [Click Below for Full Description]

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; 14 2/8 x 18 2/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Zurich, the title and sub-title 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 (central vertical crease, short tears in the lower margin affecting the image, one or two pale marginal stains). A magnificent view of the celebrated city of Zurich, the capital of Switzerland, and financial capital of Europe, 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. At the time of this view Zurich was a well-fortified and wealthy city, and for many years had been the centre of the Protestant Reformation in German-speaking Switzerland, led by Ulrich Zwingli. 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.

Fine engraved view of the city of Valenciennes, the title within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche, 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 marginal spots). A magnificent view of the city of Valenciennes 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. Valenciennes, at the time of this view, was wealthy from its wool and textile industries, and despite being part of the Hapsburg empire was a centre of Calvinism and protestant rebellion.

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 4/8 x 18 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Kampen, the title and key within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the arms of the city, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (short tear in the lower margin, one or two marginal spots). A magnificent view Kampen on the river Ijssel in Holland, 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. In 1572 Kampen was conquered from the Spaniards by Willem van den Bergh, a brother of William the Silent (William I, Prince of Orange 1533 -1584). But the city was soon back in Spanish hands, only to be re-taken in 1578, at the Siege of Kampen, led by George van Lalaing. The view shows that Kampen was a bustling city at the end of the 16th century, despite the conflicts of the Eighty Years War, and the fields opposite show textiles being laid out to dry.

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 engraved view of the city of Trento, the title within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (central vertical crease, short tears in the lower margin affecting the image with early tape repairs to verso, one or two pale marginal stains). A magnificent view of the city of Trento on the Adige river in Italy, 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. In the 16th century Trento came to political religious prominence with the Council of Trent (1545-1563), which gave rise to the Counter-Reformation. Under the Prince-Bishops of the time Renaissance Humanism floruished, part of the expression of which was the presence of a Jewish printing press. In 1558 Cardinal Madruzzo granted the privilege of printing Hebrew books to Joseph Ottolengo, although the books were printed by Jacob Marcaria. After his death in 1562 the press of Riva di Trento ceased printing, but not before thirty-four works had been published in the period 1558 to 1562, most of them bearing the coat of arms of Madruzzo. Prince-bishops ruled Trento until the Napoleonic era. The "Civitates…" was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way.

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 6/8 x 15 2/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Maestricht, 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 (marginal tear in the lower edge encroaching on the image, one or two marginal spots). A magnificent view of the town of Maestricht in the Netherlands, the birthplace of the European Union, 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. In 1579 the Maestricht was sacked by the Spanish army under general Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma (Siege of Maestricht, 1579). For over fifty years the Spanish crown took over the role of the dukes of Brabant in the joint sovereignty over Maestricht. In 1632 the city was conquered by Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange and the Dutch States General replaced the Spanish crown in the joint government of Maestricht 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

A magnificent view of the town of Tienen in Flanders, 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. Tienen is now best known for its sugar industry. 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..

Sluis, on the banks of the Zwin, was, like Damme, Monnikenrede, Hoeke, Muyden a wealthy port of Bruges, although as a result of the silting up of the Zwin, it too is cut off from the sea. In 1587, during the Eighty Years War, the duke of Parma took Sluis, and from there commanded the Zwin estuary. In 1604, Prince Maurits of Nassau, settled in the town, and built a line of fortifications that guarded access to the Zwin.

Rotterdam became the headquarters of the Dutch Admiralty in 1574 during the Dutch revolt under the command of William the Silent (William I, Prince of Orange 1533 -1584). The structure of the five Admiralties (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Firesland, West-Friesland and Zeeland) was eventually determined and defined in 1597 by the States-General of the Netherlands. Each Admiralty had branches for equipping warships, protecting overseas trade and traffic on the sea and rivers, collecting taxes, and jurisdiction over loot and price setting.

A exceptionally fine and detailed view of the City of Rouen, 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 magnificent view of Rouen shows the city during the reign of Henri IV of France. Building and roads are depicted in minute detail, including the famous cathedral which had been extensively damaged by the Calvinists and lightening on a number of occasions in the recent past. Henri IV often laid siege to the city, notably during the siege of December 1591 to May 1592, with the help of a Spanish army led by the Duke of Parma.

A magnificent view of the city of Passau at the confluence of the Inn and Danube rivers, 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. Shortly before this view was created Archduke Ferdinand I, representing Emperor Charles V, secured the agreement of the Protestant princes to submit the religious question to a diet. This led to the signing of the Peace of Augsburg in 1555. Passau is most famous, however, for its sword and blade making industry. The local smiths stamped their blades with the Passau wolf, which became so popular a motif that other cities' smiths, including those of Solingen, adopted it for themselves. By the 17th century, Solingen was producing more wolf-stamped blades than Passau was. In 1662, a devastating fire consumed most of the city. Passau was subsequently rebuilt in the Baroque style.
