Accesserunt ejusdem dissertatio De mari libero, et libellus singularis de aequitate, indulgentiae, et facilitate, necnon Joann. Frid. Gronovii V. C. notae in tomum opus De jure belli ac pacis. Editio novissima

      Due volumi di cm. 25, pp. (8) 648; (4) 267 (1), 44 (88). Sfera elzeviriana al frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero. Legatura coeva in piena perg. con titoli ms. al dorso. Pergamena un po' sporca, sporadiche bruniture e lievi fioriture sparse dovute alla qualità della carta, peraltro nel complesso esemplare ben conservato. Opera principale di Ugo Grozio (1583-1645) ritenuta dalla storiografia il fondamento del giusnaturalismo (dottrina che impone il diritto naturale come punto di partenza di ogni riflessione giuridica). La definizione, forse enfatica, di base del diritto internazionale porta il De jure belli ad essere considerato come una delle più importanti, diffuse e celebrate opere dell'intera età moderna. La presente edizione, forse napoletana, è corredata dalle note del Gronovio. Cfr. Sapori, 1465. Non in Brunet e Graesse..

The text also deals extensively with meteors and other heavenly bodies, astrology, witchcraft, portents, and medicine; the section on animals is important for its information on South American mammals.

        De Plantis Libri XVI

      20 p.l., 621, [10] pp. Thick 4to, cont. vellum (name erased from blank portion of title), yapp edges, ties gone. Florence: G. Marescotti, 1583. First edition of a rare book; this is the foundational work of scientific botany. The ideas of Cesalpino (1519-1603), "governed the development of botany in the 17th century and…extended into the 18th. He was perhaps the first great theorist in botany. His method was Aristotelian and deductive; but he based his principles on accurate observation…He was the first to describe in accurate detail the parts of flowers, seeds, and fruits, and based his analytic classification on those parts. He was perhaps the first to wrestle in print with the concept of species; and his solution, like those of many modern botanists, was based on the capacity of a group to reproduce its kind."-Rickett, "Botany from 840 to 1700 A.D." in Hunt Catalogue, Vol. I, pp. xxvii-xxviii. "The fullest statement of contemporary botanical theory and the most powerful contribution to its further development were given by Andreas Cesalpino in his De Plantis libri XVI…The whole work is of the greatest scientific and historical significance and deserves close attention. Written in clear but condensed philosophical style, its importance has not always been fully appreciated, in spite of the very high tribute paid to Cesalpino by Ray and Linnaeus."-Morton, History of Botanical Science, pp. 128-29. A fine and crisp copy. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 20. Printing & the Mind of Man 97. Sparrow, Milestones of Science, 34.

        BRITTANY, FRANCE. ZEE KAERTE VAN BRETAIGNE

      1583 - Copper engraving and etching, image: 52,5 x 34,5 cm Highly decorarive nautical chart of Brittany in France. Engraved by Joannes van Doetecum and published in 1583 in 'Spieghel der Zeevaerdt' by Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer. With a large Renaissance Cartouche and, ships and sea monsters. Johannes von Doetecum came from a famous Dutch family of engravers. The Doetecums developed a special technique of etching, highly regarded even by the contemporary artists. In 1609 Matthias Quad wrote, that the Jan and Lucas van Doetecum’ etchings made the images on the maps appear as hand-drawings. The technique remained the secret of the family and was forwarded to Jan’s sons Johannes Jr. and Baptista. (Ungefehrlich umb das Jahr 1570 haben zwey gebrüder Johan und Lucas van Doetecum eine ganz newe und uverkünstige art von etzen erfunden also daß sie allerley Figuren Landtaffeln / mit allen Schrifften und Littern darin / daß es lange Zeit von vielen verstendigen fur keine etzung / sonder einen reinen Schrift ißt angesehen werden.

Matthias Quad schrieb 1609 darüber in seinem Buch ‚Teutscher Nation Herligkeit : Ein außführliche beschreibung des gegenwärtigen Standts Germaniae‘: „Ungefehrlich umb das Jahr 1570 haben zwey gebrüder Johan und Lucas van Doetecum eine ganz newe und uverkünstige art von etzen erfunden also daß . es lange Zeit von vielen verstendigen fur keine etzung / sonder einen reinen Schrift ißt angesehen werden.

        Opus de emendatione temporum. Including: Computus Arabicus ecclesiae Antiochenae.Leiden, Franciscus Raphelengius (Officina Plantiniana), 1598. Folio (36 x 24 cm). With woodcut printer's device on title-page. Set in roman and italic types with long passages in Greek, Arabic, Hebrew, Samaritan and Ethiopic, shorter passages in Syriac, and zodiac signs, the Arabic, Samaritan and Ethiopic specially cut for use in the present book. Vellum (ca. 1630?).

      Adams S568; Fuks, Hebrew typography 15; Lane, Arabic type specimen of Franciscus Raphelengius, item 26 & p. xxv; Typ. Bat. 4476; cf. PMM 98 (1583 ed.); for the Arabic, Samaritan and Ethiopic types: Vervliet EXO 1, 2 & 3. Third and definitive edition, greatly revised and expanded by the author and printed by Plantin's son-in-law using a wide variety of non-Latin types, of a thorough scholarly study of classical, biblical and "oriental" chronology, by the leading linguist and linguistic scholar of his generation ("the greatest scholar of his age" PMM). Three of the non-Latin types (nashk Arabic, majuscule Samaritan and Ethiopic) were cut especially for this work. Scaliger and Raphelengius were far ahead of their time in viewing Arabic as an important field of study in its own right, and they showed sympathy for Arabic culture. Like their predecessors, they used Arabic for biblical exegesis, but they also studied the Quran, medical, mathematical and astronomical texts and other works originally written in Arabic. In the present work, Scaliger studied and compared the calendars and historical chronology of the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Jews and others, attempting to link them so that their dates could be related to those of the European calendar. Scaliger's work in this area "towers above that of his contemporaries" (PMM) and served as an essential key to modern historical scholarship. This was the first work ever set in Raphelengius's pioneering Arabic type, which set the stage for the Arabic types of Thomas Erpenius and others in the Netherlands and abroad: "it served as the foundation stone for a revolution in Arabic scholarship" (Lane). With a piece cut out of the title-page. It has been patched with a paper slip, and with further slips in the endpapers. With water stains in about a dozen leaves and occasional slightly browned patches, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The binding is slightly dirty, the spine-title faded and the headbands have lost much of their green thread.

        Carta de Donacíón (grant of land) Manuscript on paper. Early American commercial document

      Lima 1583 - (Peru) Aguerro, Diego de. Carta de Donacíón (grant of land) Manuscript on paper. Folio. 1 text page in a chancery hand. [Los Reyes = Lima] 19th December 1583. Signed by Diego de Aguerro, Ambrosio de Moscoso (scribe) & Francisco Onteriz. Grant of seven fanegas ‘de sembradura de trigo’ (of arable land) in Valle de Cañete (San Vicente de Cañete near Lima) given by Capitán Conquistador * Diego de Aguerro, town councillor and resident of Los Reyes to Doña Ynes Montesino, his godmother and the wife of Francisco Corte Rabanada in recognition of her good care of him – ‘porque fuys mi comadre y por muy buenas obras y servicios que me abbeys hecho que merecen mucha mas remuneración y premyo’. (A fanega was an extent of arable land, generally of 400 fathoms square). The donor, Capitán Diego de Aguerro, was one of the original 160 conquerors of Peru together with Francisco Pizarro. He had taken part in the battle of Cajamarca (16th November 1532), when the Inca army was destroyed, and received part of the regal ransom paid by the deposed king Atahualpa; he later served under Almagro in Ecuador, as co-founder of Quito and helped to found Lima, where he was appointed regidor, and became a generous donor of benefices, especially to the religious orders. The second text page contains a separate document: Deed of sale including an eleven year old negro slave: Carta de Venta (deed of sale) 1 text page in a chancery hand [Los Reyes = Lima] 19th December 1583. Signed: Diego de Montesino, Ambrosio de Moscoso (scribe) & Francisco Onteriz. Sale of half of 2 fanegas of land in the Valle de Yca (Ica in southern Peru) with a vineyard (‘una viña con seys myll posturas poco más o menos’) and Juan Criollo, an eleven year old negro slave. Sold by Diego Montesino of Los Reyes (Lima) to Capitán Diego de Aguerro, town councilor and resident in Los Reyes for 2000 pesos. Light fraying in margins, otherwise a very well preserved early American commercial document. * Title awarded to the 160 soldiers who had joined Francisco Pizarro in the conquest of Peru.

        S. Francesco riceve le simmate

      1583 - Bulino, 1583 circa, priva di data e firma. Unico stato. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La datazione proposta per questa incisione di Agostino, oscilla tra il 1581, suggerito da Bodmer, e il 1583, proposto da De Grazia. Casali-Calvesi la datano al 1582. In effetti, il paesaggio corrisponde sommariamente a quello degli Apostoli, eseguiti nel 1583, così come il volto del Santo di Assisi è affine per stile alle stesse figure. Engraving, about 1583, without date and signature. Good work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, perfect conditions. The date proposed for this work, oscillates between 1581, suggested by Bodmer, and 1583, proposed by De Grazia. Casali-Calvesi date it to 1582. In fact, the landscape corresponds roughly to that of the Apostles, executed in 1583, as well as the face of the Saint from Assisi is similar in style to the same figures.

        Mausoleo di Adriano

      1583 - Bulino, 1583, datato in lastra in basso a destra; con l’indirizzo di Claudio Duchetti. Esemplare nel primo stato di quattro descritto da Huelsen. Magnifca prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, leggere pieghe di carta, in ottime condizioni. Nel 1583 Claudio Duchetti pubblica questa ricostruzione del Mausoleo di Adriano, basata sull’illustrazione contenuta a pagina 6 nel libro di Antonio Labacco "Libro appartenente all’architettura", pubblicato a Roma nel 1559. La lunga iscrizione nel margine fornisce un’affermazione interessante, e cioè che l’imponente pigna di bronzo, oggi nel cortile del Belvedere, ma allora collocato nell’atrio della Basilica di San Pietro, originariamente si trovava proprio sulla sommità del mausoleo, come mostra la ricostruzione. L’incisione è inserita nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Engraving, 1583, dated in the lower margin, with name of editor Claudio Duchetti. Magnificient work on contemporary laid paper, thin margins, in excellent condition. In 1583 Claudio Duchetti published a reconstruction of the Tomb of Hadrian, based upon the illustration on page 6 in Antonio Labacco’s "Libro appartenente all’architettura", published in Rome in 1559. The anonymous print is inscribed with a long text below, with an interesting claim: the large bronze pine code then located in the atrium of Old St Peter’s, today in Belvedere, was originally located, as is shown in the print, on the summit of the structure. The engraving in included in Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Huelsen, n. 128 a/d; Witcombe, p. 326. Dimensioni 370 430mm

In seiner Jugend begeisterte er sich für Martin Luther. Nachdem er jedoch die "Nachfolge Christi" studiert hatte, konvertierte er, wurde katholisch (1552) und trat in das Franziskanerkloster in München ein. Nach seiner Priesterweihe im Jahr 1557 übersiedelte er 1559 in das Kloster in Ingolstadt. In Rom war er als Prediger vom Papst und von den Kardinälen sehr geschätzt. Der Papst schenkte ihm den Titel: "Sedis apostolicae concinator". Ferdinand II berief ihn nach Innsbruck, wo er die Nachfolge des Petrus Canisius Hofprediger wurde. Als solcher geriet "der wortgewaltige und streitsüchtige Franziskaner" (J. Gelmi) schnell mit den Jesuiten in Streit. Trotz allem erwarb sich N. für die Errichtung der Tiroler Franziskanerprovinz große Verdienste. Bald darauf wurde er (1580) Weihbischof in Brixen. Auch da gab es Streit um ihn: 1583 brach ein offener Konflikt aus mit dem Brixner Generalvikar Adam von Arz. Nach kurzem Aufenthalt in Lambach in Oberösterreich kam N. 1586 wieder nach Brixen. Lapidar umreisst Gelmi die Persönlichkeit des N.: "N. war begabt, aber exzentrisch und an vielen Konflikten durch seine grobe Art selbst schuld. Er erwarb sich um die Erneuerung der Tiroler Kirche große Verdienste." (S. 494). Sein Grab findet sich in der Hofkirche zu Innsbruck. - Die Holzschnitte zeigen Kämpfe der Truppen von den Türmen Babylons und des himmlischen Jerusalems gegen apokalyptische Drachen und Ungeheuer.

Modern vellum, flaps. 8vo, (16) 76 ll.A treatise on different types of fever (hectic, erratic, ?plague-like) and - what's more unusual - on the circulation of the blood. William Harvey gave a full description of the circulation of blood in 1628; this treatise thus comes in the wake of, and at the time of, the great discoveries on the blood. Galen placed the origin of blood in the liver and this view was not challenged before the 16th century. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Absent à Brunet et dans les catalogues français.

C'est en 1628 que William Harvey fera de la circulation sanguine une description complète, ce traité se situe donc dans le sillage et l'époque des grandes découvertes concernant le sang. Gallien avait situé l'origine du sang dans le foie et on ne verra pas autrement avant les remises en cause du XVIe siècle.

Veritas printer's device on the title: a woman, the naked truth, seated on a cubus, holding a radiant sun in her right hand; in her left hand she holds an opened book and a palm leaf; her feet rest on the globe; the garland of fruit which surrounds her shows a ribbon with the text in Greek: Alêtheia Pandamatôr, i.e. Allmighty Truth). (Condition: Vellum partly soiled. Right margin of title slightly thumbed; title slightly browning) (Note: Festus is a 2nd century grammarian, who produced an abbreviation of a lexicographic work by Marcus Verrius Flaccus, a wellknown antiquarian and grammarian living in Augustan Rome. Verrius compiled an enormous lexicon in 80 books, full of unusual, difficult, and archaic words, with discussions about customs, political institutions, belief and Roman law. Remains of his work survive in the epitome of 20 books made by Sextus Pompeius Festus. Festus also added examples found in other sources; the original work of Verrius is completely lost, and only 1 manuscript of Festus survived the Middle Ages in an heavily mutilated form. The first reliable text, which was a great improvement compared to earlier editions was published in 1559 by Antonio Agustin, 1517-1586, who made good use of the Farnese manuscript at Naples, and aimed at reconstructing the text in a strict alphabetical order from A to V, with the help of other Medieval epitomes of Festus. GLN 15-16 states that this edition is a reissue of an edition published in 1581 in Rome. According to Smitskamp 60 Fulvius Ursinus simply reproduces Scaliger's edition without mentioning his name. In the praefatio to the 62 pages with learned notes the reader is assured that this edition (of 1583) is a faithful transcription of the sole surviving MS of Festus) (Collation: A-N8, O4; A-C8, D8 (minus leaf D8) (Photographs on request)

        Ritratto di Johannes Stradanus

      1583 - Bulino, circa 1583, firmato in lastra in basso. Da un disegno di Jan van der Straet detto Stradano. Esemplare di secondo stato, con l’aggiunta delle scritte. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame ed applicata per un lato su antico supporto di collezione, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Goltzius incide tre differenti ritratti dell’artista fiammingo; questa lastra, incisa nel 1583 è la più antica delle tre, ed è ispirata da un disegno di Stradano da cui il Goltzius prende in prestito anche le figure allegoriche, come documenta un disegno oggi conservato agli Uffizi di Firenze. Le tre donne della cornice ornamentale rappresentano le allegorie dell’architettura, della pittura e del disegno. Bellissimo esemplare di questo suggestivo ritratto. Engraving, 1583 circa, signed on lower plate. After a drawing by Jan van der Straet, also known as Stradano. Example in the second state, with some writings added. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark and laid on collector’s paper, in excellent condition. Goltzius engraved three different portraits of the Flemish artist; this plate is the oldest and derives from a drawing of Stradano with whom Goltzius had business relations. The three women in the decorative frame depict the allegories of architecture, painting and drawing. Beautiful example of a striking portrait.

        Plumbinum

      Anversa 1583 - Veduta tratta dal "Mediceae Familiare rerum feliciter gestarum Victoriae et Triumphi. Elegantissimis iconibus a Johanne Stradano Flandro, artificiosissimo penicillo delineata & à Philippo Gallaeo in aes incisa ed edita 1583". I lavori, tratti dai disegni dello STRADANO, tuttavia portano date differenti e secondo Hirschmann le incisioni del Goltzius (autore assieme al Galle delle opere) sono databili al 1578.

      Anversa 1583 - Mappa tratta dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde Le Miroir du Monde è l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle. Due anni dopo, nel 1579, fu data alle stampe l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa, perché Heyns non aveva avuto il tempo necessario per la resa in versi, col titolo Le Miroir du Monde. Il successo di questa edizione francese, è provato proprio dalla seconda edizione pubblicata a soli 4 anni di distanza, nel 1583. Complessivamente Galle pubblicò 5 edizioni in lingua francese, di cui solo le prime due con il titolo Le Miroir du Monde; a partire dal 1588, e così per le edizioni del 1590 e del 1598, il titolo dell’opera fu modificato in Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, e il nome di Peeter Heyns non figurò più sul frontespizio. Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l’ultima – edita nell’anno della morte di Ortelius – conteneva ben 123 mappe. Map published taken from the second French edition of ‘Le Miroir du Monde’, published by Galle & Heyns in 1583, printed by Plantin. Le Miror du Monde is the French transaltion of the Duch poems Spieghel der Werelt, the first modern pocket-atlas, published by Philip Galle with text by Peeter Heyns in 1577, based on Abraham Ortelius’ Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The maps were drawn and engraved by Galle. Two years later, in 1579, Galle & Heyns published the first French edition: Heyns translated the Dutch poems into French prose because he did not find time to put them into rhyme. This French edition became very popular and in 1583 an amplified reprint appeared. Galle & Heyns published 5 French edition, two with the title Miroir, and three (1588, 1590, 1598) with the title Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, that appeared from 1588 onwards (Peeter Heyns’ name no longer figures on the title pages of the Antwerp editions). Second French edition of this rare miniature atlas, "enlarged with eleven maps. six are double sized" (Koeman p. 275). Compared to the first edition of 1579, which contained 72 maps, the second edition was increased by 11 new maps, for a total of 83 plates. Between 1577 & 1598 Galle issued 11 editions, all printed by Christopher Plantin. Koeman 331:12; Phillips 387 Dimensioni 110 80mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A DEFENSE OF THE SINCERE AND TRUE TRANSLATIONS OF THE HOLIE SCRIPTURES INTO THE ENGLISH TONG, AGAINST THE MANIFOLDE CAUILS, FRIUOLOUS QUARELS, AND IMPUDENT SLAUNDERS OF GREGORIE MARTIN, ONE OF THE READERS OF POPISH DIUINITIE IN THE TRAYTEROUS SEMINARIE OF RHEMES

      London: Imprinted by Henrie Bynneman, for George Bishop, 1583. FIRST EDITION. Written as an obviously truculent repudiation, this book is a response to Gregory Martin's 1582 Rheims New Testament translation and "Discoverie of the Manifold Corruptions of the Holy Scriptures." It is one of several polemical treatises Fulke (1528-89) produced as spokesman against the Roman Catholic side during his active participation in the continuing religious controversy of the period. According to DNB, during the last decade of Fulke's life, "no year passed without the appearance of one or more books [by him] in defence of Protestantism, and in confutation of the church of Rome. His language was unmeasured, and even in that age, he was conspicuous for the virulence of his invective against his opponents. His learning was, however, extensive and sound, and he was an able master of controversy." The printer, Henry Bynneman (d. 1583) took up his trade as stationer in 1566, and prospered as printer and bookseller. His greatest work was the printing of Holinshed's "Chronicles" in 1577. The present book was printed in the last year of his life. This volume once resided in the fine library assembled by several generations of barons Harlech at their Shropshire estate, Brogyntyn. The inscription is likely in the hand of the fourth Lord Harlech, William George Arthur Ormsby-Gore (1885-1964), a bibliophile who served as president of the National Library of Wales in the 1950s. According to DNB, he "added many rare books" to the family collection. This is an uncommon work: just two other copies have appeared at auction since the 1980s, and virtually all copies are found in sad condition.. 170 x 105 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). [6], 95, [1], 1-144, 147-514, 517-532, [4], 71 pp. (mispaginated as ESTC copy, but complete). FIRST EDITION. Late 19th century blue three-quarter morocco, raised bands, gilt titling. Title page with woodcut printer's device, woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials. Printed sidenotes in Greek, Latin, Hebrew, and English. Front flyleaf with ink inscription of "Harlech / Brogyntyn." STC 11430; Lowndes I, 845; Sayle 1511. Spine uniformly darkened, one corner lightly rubbed, three gatherings a bit browned, one leaf with small hole (paper flaw) affecting a shoulder note, but a fine copy of a book almost never found like this, clean and crisp with ample margins in a binding with few signs of wear. Written as an obviously truculent repudiation, this book is a response to Gregory Martin's 1582 Rheims New Testament translation and "Discoverie of the Manifold Corruptions of the Holy Scriptures."

        Lexicon greco-latinum novum.

      Guillaume Le Maire,, Genève, 1583 - In 4° (24 x 15,7). Bel frontespizio xilografico a bordura, testo in greco e latino, capilettera xilografici. Bell’esemplare fresco e marginoso in superba legatura coeva tutta pelle, riccamente impressa a secco e con doppia cornice oro con fregi iscritti ai piatti e grande emblema della fortuna senza delfino ornata da grottesche al piatto anteriore. Altro emblema al piatto post. Dorso a nervi ornato; un piccolo restauro a mancanza alla cuffia inferiore. Tagli dorati e bulinati. Tracce di lacci; ex-libris ottocentesco "Nordkirchen" al risguardo anteriore. Seconda edizione (1a: 1580) del Lexicon greco curata dall’erudito tedesco Johannes Scapula. L’abbondanza di testo e di citazioni tratte dalla monumentale opera dell’Estienne, impressa pochi anni prima valse a quest’opera l’accusa di plagio. Certo è che il successo editoriale però fu tutto dalla parte di questa versione, ampia ma concisa e agile nella struttura consultativa, il che ne spiega le numerose reimpressioni per tutto il Cinquecento e Seicento. L’emblema al piatto anteriore della donna che spiega una vela (la Fortuna) ebbe principalmente uso in Italia, ciò non toglie che anche in botteghe del Nord Europa sia stato adoperato, come in questo caso. La manifattura potrebbe essere localizzata a Norimberga oppure nell’area fiamminga. CHAIX/DUFOUR/MOECKLI, Les livres imprimés à Genève de 1550 à 1600, Genève 1966, p. 108.

        Tiipus Orbis Terrarum

      Anversa 1583 - Magnifico esemplare di questa rara carta del mondo di Philippe Galle, realizzata per la prima edizione dello Spieghel del Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577. Questa carta del mondo è una fedele ed accurata riduzione della prima mappa del mondo di Ortelius del 1570, che era la tavola di apertura del suo celebre atlante Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Shirley, 122; Koeman, Ort 1; Karrow: 1/6, van der Krogt AN: 0001:31A). La lastra incisa da Philippe Galle, reca la data del 1574, sebbene la prima edizione dell'Epitome (secondo il titolo che diventerà comune nei secoli successivi), sia stata pubblicata nel 1577. Questa mappa verrà utilizzata per le sole edizioni dell'Epitome edite dal 1577 al 1585, e sarà poi sostituita da una lastra più piccola, a partire dal 1588. A differenza delle altre carte dell'Epitome, il mappamondo ha un formato più largo. La citazione latina nel margine inferiore, già presente nel modello di Ortelius, è da Cicerone (Tusculanae Disputatianes IV. 1 7. 37) "Quid ei potest videri magnum in rebus humanis, cui aeternitas omnis, totiusque mundi nota sit magnitudo" ovvero "Che cosa, tra le vicende umane, può sembrare grande a colui al quale è nota la grandezza del mondo e l'eternità dell'universo?". La carta del mondo di Ortelius, incisa e firmata da Franciscus Hogenberg, è di fondamentale importanza per la storia della cartografia in quanto costituisce la PRIMA MAPPA DEL MONDO a essere realizzata per un atlante di formato uniforme e non composito, quali gli atlanti del Lafrery. Le fonti cartografiche della carta sono il mappamondo di Mercator del 1569, quello di Gastaldi del 1561 e il portolando dell'Atlantico di Diego Gutierrez. La forma ovale rimanda, invece, ad Appiano e Bordone. Esemplare tratto dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde. Le Miroir du Monde è l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle.

Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l’ultima – edita nell’anno della morte di Ortelius – conteneva ben 123 mappe. Fine example of Philippe Galle's rare map of the World, engraved for the first edition of his Spieghel del Werelt, the first miniature edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. This map is a neatly-engraved smaller copy of Ortelius' first world map plate, published in 1570, that is the first map of the Theatrum Orbis Terrrarum (Shirley, 122; Koeman, Ort 1; Karrow: 1/6, van der Krogt AN: 0001:31A). The Galle's plate is dated 1574 although the first printing of Galle's atlas did not taken place until 1577. The motto below the map is a quotation from Cicero (Tusculanae Disputatianes IV. 1 7. 37) Quid ei potest videri magnum in rebus humanis, cui aeternitas omnis, totiusque mundi nota sit magnitudo (For what human affairs can seem important to a man who keeps all eternity before his eyes and knows th [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
