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.

        Remberti Dodonaei Mechliniensis medici caesari Stirpium historiae pemptades sex sive libri XXX.

      Antuerpiae: Ex officina Christophori Plantini Folio (36 cm; 14"). [10] ff., 860 pp., [13] ff., illus.. 1583 Written and printed during the second decade of the Dutch Golden Age (1570–1670), this => first edition of Dodoens' Stirpium historiae pemptades sex is coveted today by collectors of printing for the excellent typography of the Plantin Press, by collectors of early illustration for van der Borcht's detailed woodcuts, and by collectors and scholars of natural history for the important contributions to botany that the author incorporates. Hunt says of this that it is the "First edition of Dodoens' last and most comprehensive botanical work, incorporating material from a number of his earlier books, including the Cruydeboeck"; it was the basis for Gerard's famous English herbal. Rembert Dodoens (1517–85), a Flemish physician and botanist, was fully immersed in the Renaissance method of pursuing knowledge, whether derived from ancient texts or from new discoveries and personal observation, or combining the best elements of both streams. That is what he did with his Cruydeboeck and with Stirpium historiae pemptades sex. Coming as it does during the first hundred years after the discovery of the New World and concomitant knowledge of New World plants, the Pemptades illustrates and discusses such new discoveries as maize, tobacco, mechoacan, and nopal. The => 1298 woodcut illustrations here were commissioned by Plantin from the Flemish artist Pieter van der Borcht (1545–1608), a pupil of Pieter Brueghel the Elder. Thomas Gloning (Rembert Dodoens und sein Cruyde Boeck) says van der Borcht is held to be one of the most gifted botanical painters of the 16th century. Provenance: College of Pharmacy of the City of New York. Evidence of readership: A reader of the late 16th century has corrected some of the text and has added interesting marginalia in Latin that expounds or expands on sections of it. A later reader, probably of the late 18th or early 19th century, has labeled some of the woodcut illustrations with the plant names using Linnaean and post-Linnaean taxonyms. For example some have "W" at the end of the Latin name, for Carl Ludwig Willdenow (1765–1812), others "Schmidt" for F.W. Schmidt (1764–96), most just have an "L" at the end, for Linnaeus. Recent quarter mottled brown calf with green and red stone-pattern marbled paper sides; raised bands, each accented above and below by single gilt rule and with gilt center devices in five spine compartments. Library stamp as above on title-page and three other pages. Minor worming in some, a very few, margins, most notable in upper margins of pp. 260–89; gently age-toned, and a few leaves with browning or foxing; overall => a crisp, clean, decidedly desirable copy.

        Lexicon Graecolatinum recens constructum. In quod, tanquã in Thesaurum, dictiones propè innumerabiles collectæ sunt, ad communem studiosoru linguæ Græce utilitatem.

      Apud Guillielmum Leimarium, Genevæ 1583 - Grand in-8 de (16)-824-376-(106) pp., veau brun, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure XVIIIe siècle). Deuxième édition du lexique grec de Joannes Scapula, qui fut publié pour la première fois en 1580. Joannes Scapula, né en Allemagne dans la seconde moitié du seizième siècle, fut correcteur dans l'imprimerie de Henri Estienne, et à l'exemple de son maître, est aussi compté parmi les lexicographes grecs. Le Lexicon graecolatinum, compilation du Thesaurus graecae linguae de Henri Estienne publié en 1572, lui valut d'être accusé de plagiat. Selon Renouard (I, 139), « la compilation écourtée de Scapula eut la fortune de beaucoup d'abrégés : bien moins chère, et en apparence d'usage plus facile, elle se vendit, se réimprima pendant que le Thesaurus restait dans le magasin de son auteur. » Il en résulta un dommage considérable pour ce dernier, tandis que Scapula rendit la science plus accessible par le bon marché auquel on se procurait son livre. L'appendice contient : De Graecae linguae dialectis, ex scriptis Joannis Grammatici ; Corinthus de dialectis ; ex Plutarcho excerpta de dialectis, de tropis, de schematis et homerico eorum usu ; verborum quorundam themata quae magna ex parte vel sunt anomala vel poetica ; de Graecorum notis arithmeticis compendium ex Hadriani Amerotii scriptis ; Herodiani de iisdem tractatus ; de mensibus et eorum partibus ; de veteri et recta graecae linguae pronuntiatione.

Y, sin embargo, y pese a la extrema delgadez del papel, muy buen ejemplar.- Proc.: Pequeño ex-libris de tampón en lado derecho de la portada, ilegible.- // Tercera edición, revisada y aumentada, de la primera obra publicada por Francisco Vallés ?el divino?, las Controversias médicas y filosóficas sobre la obra de Galeno, de las que todavía haría otras dos ediciones antes de morir. Las Controversias resultaron tan interesantes que provocaron una anécdota célebre. En 1580, el médico protestante alemán Johannes Kraft [Johannis Cratonis, en su forma latinizada], que disponía de un ejemplar de la primera edición de 1556, decidió que merecián ser difundidas y pensó en hacer una edición. Pero ni tenía ni consiguió noticias -o eso dijo- de quién era Valles, más allá de lo que aparecía en el libro publicado 25 años antes. Decidió, pues, llevarla a cabo sin consultar al autor, de quien ni siquiera sabía si estaba aún vivo, pero lo hizo ?corrigiendo y puliendo el texto?, lo que vino a ser no solo criticar el latín en el que estaba escrito y contradecir algunas de las proposiciones que contenía, sino también cambiar aquellas otras de las que más discrepaba sin cortarse en criticar a su autor. Salió impresa la traduccón al año siguiente, 1582, en Francfort, en la imprenta de los herederos de Wechel. Su sorpresa llegaría de inmediato al enterarse de que Valles estaba vivo, de que había enviado el texto revisado y ampliado al impresor Plantino de Amberes y que este había rechazado imprimir esa tercera edición precisamente porque el libro acababa de ser publicado en Alemania. Así se enteró Vallés de esa impresión para la que no le habían pedido permiso. No le quedó, pues, más remedio que volver a acudir a una imprenta peninsular para publicar la actualización de sus Controversias (1). Al mandarla a imprenta, Valles la complementó con un texto nuevo, Comentario sobre los cinco primeros libros de los medicamentos simples, de Galeno, que tiene así en esta su primera edición (2). La impresión de la obra se hizo de modo preconcebido para ser publicada conjuntamente con las Controversias, imprimiéndose primero estas -colofón de 1582-, luego la novedad -colofón de 1583- y disponiendo una portada conjunta para ambas. La portada común es la responsable de la atribución de la tercera edición de las Controversias a 1583 en vez de a 1582.- // Refs.: CCPB, 000027258-2; Martín Abad, Alcalá de Henares, 942; Palau, 350893.- // (1) Para esta anécdota y sobre las Controversias, es imprescindible la antología preparada por Jose Maria López Piñero y Francisco Calero: Los temas polémicos de la medicina renacentista: Las Controversias (1566) de Francisco Valles y la medicina renacentista.- Madrid: Csic, 1988.

Rembert Dodoens (1517–85), a Flemish physician and botanist, was fully immersed in the Renaissance method of pursuing knowledge, whether derived from ancient texts or from new discoveries and personal observation, or combining the best elements of both streams. That is what he did with his Cruydeboeck and with Stirpium historiae pemptades sex. Coming as it does during the first hundred years after the discovery of the New World and concomitant knowledge of New World plants, the Pemptades illustrates and discusses such new discoveries as maize, tobacco, mechoacan, and nopal. The => 1298 woodcut illustrations here were commissioned by Plantin from the Flemish artist Pieter van der Borcht (1545–1608), a pupil of Pieter Brueghel the Elder. Thomas Gloning (Rembert Dodoens und sein Cruyde Boeck) says van der Borcht is held to be one of the most gifted botanical painters of the 16th century. Provenance: College of Pharmacy of the City of New York. Evidence of readership: A reader of the late 16th century has corrected some of the text and has added interesting marginalia in Latin that expounds or expands on sections of it. A later reader, probably of the late 18th or early 19th century, has labeled some of the woodcut illustrations with the plant names using Linnaean and post-Linnaean taxonyms. For example some have "W" at the end of the Latin name, for Carl Ludwig Willdenow (1765–1812), others "Schmidt" for F.W. Schmidt (1764–96), most just have an "L" at the end, for Linnaeus. Recent quarter mottled brown calf with green and red stone-pattern marbled paper sides; raised bands, each accented above and below by single gilt rule and with gilt center devices in five spine compartments. Library stamp as above on title-page and three other pages. Minor worming in some, a very few, margins, most notable in upper margins of pp. 260–89; gently age-toned, and a few leaves with browning or foxing; overall => a crisp, clean, decidedly desirable copy.

En el caso de Pietro Andrea Mattioli, afincado en Trento, este inició su trabajo sobre "Los seis libros de la materia medicinal de Dioscórides" hacia 1533, siendo su primera publicación la traducción de los cinco primeros libros al italiano, en 1544, desde la versión latina de Jean Ruelle (que se había impreso por primera vez en Paris, Officina Henrici Stephani, en 1516). Empleada también por Miguel Servet para sus comentarios, la versión de Ruelle fue la más seguida en el siglo XVI hasta que, en 1598, Jean-Antoine Sarasin (Saracenus) publicó en Frankfurt la que a partir de entonces pasó a ser considerada como la definitiva.

        FRANCISCVS DRAECK NOBILISSIMVS EQVES ANGLIÆ ANo ÆT SVE 43

      [London, 1583. Matted and framed. A fine, black impression, expertly laid down on a larger sheet. Slight wear to upper edge. Very good and handsomely presented. This handsome and striking print is generally considered the finest contemporary portrait of Sir Francis Drake. It has been attributed as the work of the engraver, Hondius, since the 18th century, although Kraus and others suggest it might be the work of Remigius Hogenberg. Only two copies are known of the first state of the print. This is a copy of the second state, probably printed by George Vertue in the 18th century, from the original copper plate, which he altered by adding additional shading to the background. Drake is shown standing, holding a baton in one hand and a helmet in the other. He looks the viewer squarely in the eye. The mole on his nose and short-cropped hair testify to the trueness of the unidealized portrait. Behind him, by a window, hangs a globe. The caption below the portrait makes reference to the circumnavigation. The image forcefully conveys the appearance and personality of the man. A cornerstone for any Drake collection. Kraus used this portrait as the frontispiece for his book on Drake.

        Boni et Mali Scientia: The Science of Good and Evil

      Antwerp 1583 - 12 intaglio engravings on thick laid paper, based on images from Genesis, after drawings by Maarten de Vos. Slightly dusty in borders, a couple of small wormholes affecting blank margin only. Engravings measure 185x260mm, sheets 245x335. Explanation below each scene in a clear italic. A very good copy in modern quarter calf over cloth boards. 1. TITLE PAGE: BONI ET MALI SCIENTIA Central title, the surround featuring Adam and Eve dozing on either side and the serpent and apple beneath, implements of agriculture - for threshing, sowing etc; musical instruments and weapons of war. Bartsch 7001.017 S2. Wurzbach 8.1. Le Blanc 39. 2. CREATION OF MAN AND WOMAN Highly detailed scene, featuring lions, a fox and a porcupine in the foreground round the feet of Adam and Eve and God, whose outline is hazy and who walks on a cloud. In the middle-ground appear numerous trees and God sending the couple to sleep on the banks of a river. In the background, mountains rise into the distance, and a bucking horse and camel appear on the shores of a great sea. This engraving served as the model for Jacob Bouttat’s ‘Paradise’, a painting in the Museo de Navarro, Pampalona. Bartsch 7001.018 S2 1. THE FALL OF MAN Set in the garden of Eden, in the background we see Eve picking fruit from the tree of life and handing it to Adam, while in the tree above them coils the Serpent, half snake and half man, his arm outstretched towards Eve, against a backdrop of trees. In the foreground we see God expelling the couple, now clothed in branches, from Paradise. Around His feet lie a bird, a lioness, a deer and a magnificent spiky hedgehog. This engraving served as the model for Jacob Bouttat’s ‘El Peccado’. Bartsch 7001.019 S2 1. ADAM AND EVE AFTER THE FALL Expelled from Paradise, in the background we see Adam and Eve pursued by a sword-wielding angel, in front of which appear an elephant, a camel, an ostrich, a unicorn. A leafy bank rises on the left on which graze goats and rabbits, while in the foreground we see a well-muscled Adam working in his fields while eve looks on, babe in arms and toddler and chickens at her feet. This engraving served as the model for Jacob Bouttat’s ‘Adam trabajando el campo’. Bartsch 7001.020 S2 1. CAIN AND ABEL AT WORK IN THE FIELDS Against a backdrop of rolling hills, once more punctuated by a camel, we see Abel tending a herd of cattle and sheep, a pair of rams locking horns at his feet, while Cain drives a belligerent ox. To the right a cottage shows a family scene. This engraving served as the model for Jacob Bouttat’s ‘Cain Agricultor y Abel Pastor’. Bartsch 7001.021 S2 1. THE OFFERING OF CAIN AND ABEL Against the now common pastoral-familial background, the scene shows Cain and Abel making sacrifices of fruit & vegetables and a lamb, while God stands in the smoke. In the middle distance we see the murder of Abel. This engraving served as the model for Jacob Bouttat’s ‘Sacrificios de Cain y Abel’. Bartsch 7001.022 S2 1. THE CURSE OF CAIN Before a thatched cottage in which his wife stirs a pot and cradles her child, Cain is building, numerous sheep and donkeys at his feet. A vengeful God appears on the left, a mountain path rises in the rear. This engraving served as the model for Jacob Bouttat’s ‘Cain con su mujer y su hijo Enoch’. Bartsch 7001.023 S2 1. ENOCH BUILDING A TOWN A scene of intense industry showing men breaking rocks, mixing mortar, collecting water and building walls in the foreground, a town with thatched houses and a castle behind, interspersed with beasts of burden and labourers. Bartsch 7001.024 S2 1. THE DESCENDANTS OF LAMECH Depicting the house of Lamech with his two wives, Ada (light) with her shepherd and musician children, and Sella (darkness) with her daughter Pleasure and blacksmith son, here shown wielding rocks. In the background rural scene Lamech is shown with his corpse at his feet, the town behind. Bartsch 7001.025 S2 1.

        FRANCISVS DRAECK NOBILISSIMVS EQVES ANGLIÆ AN. ÆT SVE 43

      Paris, 1583. Cut to just within plate mark and inlaid into later wove paper sheet. Later ink inscription on verso reading "from Holland / 1809." Minor wear and soiling. Matted. Very good. A clean impression of the second state of this famous portrait of Sir Francis Drake at age forty-three, shortly after he returned from circumnavigating the globe, the basis for most of the later images of him. The image is taken from a portrait purportedly painted from life by Jean Rabel the Elder and is said to be a credible likeness of the famed navigator. The legend beneath the portrait indicates the dates of Drake's circumnavigation, listing Rabel as the painter and Thomas de Leu as the engraver. Thomas de Leu (1560-1612), a pupil of Rabel's, moved to Paris around 1576 and became one of the most noted portrait engravers of his time. This engraving of Drake was the basis for many later images of him, including the well-known engravings by Jodocus Hondius and Crispin van de Passe. The earliest graphic image of one of the greatest figures in maritime history.

      Parisiis : apud Ægidium Beys, 1583. - 1583 Nonius Marcellus Proprietate Lost Works Ancient Rome Navigation Philosophy Very Rare Encyclopedia of Peripatetic Philosopher Nonius Marcellus was a Roman grammarian of the 4th or 5th century AD. His only surviving work is the De compendiosa doctrina, a dictionary or encyclopedia in 20 books that shows his interests in antiquarianism and Latin literature from Plautus to Apuleius. Nonius may have come from Africa. The full title of his work, Noni Marcelli Peripatetici Tubursicensis de Conpendiosa Doctrina ad filium, indicates that he was a Peripatetic philosopher from Thubursicum in Numidia. It has been printed under a number of titles, including De proprietate latini sermonis and De varia significatione Verborum. It is also one of the major sources for lost works of the ancient Roman Republic. It consists of words, short definitions, and then quotations of authors. It is one of three major Latin dictionaries preserved from antiquity. In addition to grammar, this work includes chapters on subjects including food, costume, and navigation.

        Trevisanus De chymico miraculo, quod lapidem philosophiae appellant. Dionys. Zecharius Gallus de eodem. Auctoritatibus variis Principum huius artis, Democriti, Gebri, Lullii, Villanovani confirmati et illustrati per Gerardum Dorneum

      Basel, Petri 1583.. 3 Bll., 198 S. Prgt. des 17. Jhdts. Brüning, Alchemistische Druckwerke 0750; Adams B 737; Duveen 69 und 178; VD16 B 2008; Ferguson I, 222 (nur die 2. Ausgabe von 1600); Nicht im JbdA seit 1950. - Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe, herausgegeben vom Theosophen und Alchemisten Gerhard Dorn (1530 - ca. 1584). Dorn ist besonders als Übersetzer und Herausgeber von Paracelsus bekannt, den er ins Lateinische übersetzte und somit europäischen Gelehrtenkreisen zugänglich machte. Vorliegende Schrift enthält bis p. 48 einen Text des Bernardus Trevisanus, eines angeblichen italienischen Alchemisten des 15. Jhdts., darauf folgend das "Opusculum Philophiae Naturalis Metallorum" des Dionysius Zacharias und ab p. 117 die Annotationes des Nicolas Flamel. Dorn druckte die Texte in seinem bekannten Theatrum chymicum 1602 noch einmal ab. --- Von besonderem Interesse ist der für mich leider nicht namentlich zu bestimmende Vorbesitzer, ein Alchemist und Paracelsist: Vorgebunden 8 eng beschriebene Blätter, das Exemplar ist fast nach jedem Textblatt mit einem weißen Blatt durchschossen, viele davon mit tls. ausführlichen Anmerkungen. Tls. auch mit Marginalien von derselben Hand. Die handschriftlichen Bemerkungen offenbaren einen tiefen Einblick in die Materie, so finden sich Zitate aus Paracelsus, tls. auch in Verbindung mit Bibelstellen, Rezepete, alchemistische Symbole etc., teils lateinisch, teils deutsch. - Der Einband etwas altersfleckig, ein Gelenk mit kleiner Läsur, Rückenschild mit Absplitterung, eine Kante aufgeraut. Es fehlen die Bindebänder. Zum Schluss einige weiße Blätter herausgetrennt. Auf dem Titel ist "Trevisanus" mit Goldfarben nachgezogen, sowie ein kleines Symbol in Goldfarbe gezeichnet. A2 und A3 im Vorwort mit minimalen Hinterlegungen, bei A3 einige Buchstaben unauffällig hs. ergänzt.

Ecoutons Brunet II, 1076, à ce sujet : 'Cet ouvrage piquant a été édité à Genève, en 1578, et non à Paris ; selon plusieurs bibliographes. L'auteur y a prodigué son immense érudition, mais en même temps s'y est permis certaines plaisanteries un peu hardies, qui lui attirèrent une verte semonse du conseil de Genève, par suite de laquelle il jugea prudent de s'absenter... Il en existe deux autres d'Anvers, 1579 et 1583, in 16, qui ne sont guère moins rares que la première, et dont le prix est assez élevé.' Reliure en plein veau milieu XIXe. Dos à nerfs orné, dans le goût d'une reliure du XVIIe. Frottements. Manque le coin bas droit du feuillet 97 avec perte de quelques lettres au dernier mot. Dialogues satiriques, raillant les comportements de cour, les modes vestimentaires et de langages (la mode de prononcer à l'italienne les mots français par exemple, ou les conventions de langage sur les titres). Henri Estienne s'y cache sous le nom de Jean Franchet. La drôlerie et la moquerie sont souvent poussées fort loin, et l'ensemble se lit avec la plus grande délectation. Les deux dialogues sont précédés de poésies adressées aux courtisans non moins drôles et satiriques.
