        [Pausaniou tes Hellados periegesis]. Hoc est, Pausaniae Accurata Graeciae descriptio, qua lector ceu manu per eam regionem circumducitur [...].

      Frankfurt a. M., Andreas Wechels Erben, 1583.. 3 Bände in 1. (12), 357, (1) SS. Spp. 359-508, (66) SS. (12), 302 SS. Spp. 303-352. Mit der wiederholten Druckermarke u. zahlreichen figürl. u. ornamentalen Initialen. [Beigebunden:] Lazius, Wolfgang. Historicarum Commemorationum Rerum Graecarum Libri [...]. Frankfurt, Wechel, 1605. Mit Druckermarke am Titel u. letzten Blatt sowie mehreren Textholzschnitten. Zeitgenössischer Pergamentband auf sechs durchzogenen Bünden m. hs. Rücktentitel, einfacher Deckelfilete u. übergreifenden Deckelkanten. Ohne die Bindebänder. Folio.. Prachtvoll erhaltener Sammelband aus dem Besitz des Nürnberger Gelehrten Joachim Camerarius (1566-1642) mit der zweiten Ausgabe von Pausanias' Werk im griechischen Originaltext; der beigegebene zweite Band enthält die lateinische Übersetzung der berühmten Griechenlandbeschreibung. Diese wurde erstmals 1516 bei Aldus "nach einem schlechten Mscr." (Schweiger) gedruckt, dann ist sie - nach zahlreichen lat. Übertragungen - erst wieder in vorliegender Edition auf Griechisch erschienen. "The Aldine edition is here corrected in many places, with the valuable notes and illustrations of Xylander; which, after his death, were continued by Sylburgius [...] The work also contains a description of Greece from Strabo, Ptolemy, and Pliny. The Latin Version separately printed, which is composed by Amasaeus [...], is said [...] to have been taken from MSS. much purer than those which formed the basis of a variety of preceding Latin editions of Pausanias" (Dibdin). Das beigebundene Werk des Wiener Humanisten Wolfgang Lazius über die Geschichte Griechenlands ist dessen Förderer Kaiser Ferdinand I. gewidmet. - Wie aus einem längeren, 1619 datierten Schenkungsvermerk hervorgeht, erhielt Joachim Camerarius den Band als Geschenk des Juristen Kaspar Jungermann (1567-1637, vgl. Jöcher in DBA I 615, 126), der als Bruder des auch in der eigenhändigen Widmung erwähnten und in der Wechelschen Druckerei als Korrektor beschäftigten Philologen Gottfried Jungermann (1581-1610) wohl über mehr als nur ein Exemplar des in ebendieser Offizin verlegten Werkes verfügen konnte. Der von Jungermann in dessen eigenh. Widmung (14 Zeilen m. eh. Paraphe am hinteren Spiegel) als hochgebildeter und am klassischen Altertum interessierter Humanist gerühmte Camerarius hielt sich zum Zeitpunkt der Schenkung als Rat und Leibmedicus des Fürsten Christian zu Anhalt in Leipzig auf, kehrte aber bald in seine Geburtsstadt Nürnberg zurück, um dem dortigen, von seinem gleichnamigen Vater (1534-1598) gestifteten Collegio medico als Dekan vorzustehen. Den nach der Dedikation obsoleten Besitzvermerk Jungermanns am Titel ergänzte Camerarius - ebenfalls eigenhändig - folgendermaßen: "Nunc Joachimi L. F. Camerarii, ex dono D[omini] D[omini] Caspari Jungermanni Gotofredi fratris; quod factum 22. April 1619. Lipsiae." - Kl. Exlibris des 19. Jh.s "Freiherr Walther Sterneak" im vorderen Innendeckel. - Im Handel selten, nur zwei Exempl. auf internat. Auktionen seit 1975. Sehr schöne, fleckenfrei erhaltene Drucke in einem Sammelband mit bedeutender Provenienz. - I: VD 16, P 1073. Adams, P 522. Dibdin 272. Schweiger I, 224. Hoffmann III, 48. Moss II, 386f. ("Very good and correct edition [...] Fine copies of this edition are not easily procured"). Graesse V, 177. Brunet IV, 454 ("belle"). II: VD 17, 23:231183F. Zu Camerarius vgl. Jöcher, Jäck (Pantheon), Will (Nürnb. Gelehrten), alle in DBA I, 175, 302-305.

        Les Tenures du Monsieur Littleton, Ouesque Certein Cases Addes...

      1583. Interleaved and Heavily Annotated 1583 Edition of Littleton Littleton, Sir Thomas [1402-1481]. West, William [fl. 1568-1594], Editor. Les Tenures du Monsieur Littleton, Ouesque Certein Cases Addes per Auters de Puisne Temps, Queux Cases vous Troveres Signes Ouesque Cest Sign[e] [fleuron] al Co[m]mencement [et] Al Fine de Chescun Deux, Au Fine que ne Poies eux Misprender pur les Cases de Monsieur Littleton: pur quel Inconvenience, ils Fueront Dernierment Tolles de cest Liver. Et cy un Foits Pluis Admotes al Request des Gentill Homes Students en le ley Dengleterre. Cum privilegio. 1583. [London: In Fleestrete Within Temple Barre, At the Signe of the Hand and Starre, By Rychard Tottill, 1583]. [ii], 103, 105-171, [24] ff. Title page of index, compiled by West, misbound after main title page. Interleaves. Octavo (5-3/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary limp vellum with lapped edges, thong ties. Light soiling and edgewear, a few minor stains, a few cracks to text block. Light toning to text, wide margins, extensive underlining and annotations to text and interleaves and endleaves in contemporary hand. An appealing copy. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases. The annotations in this copy are mostly interpretive; some are glosses, cross-references and case references. Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:573. English Short-Title Catalogue S108638.

        FRANCISVS DRAECK NOBILISSIMVS EQVES ANGLIÆ AN. ÆT SVE 43.

      Paris. [ca. 1583]. - Engraved portrait, oval with surrounding legend and text beneath, on laid paper (6 7/8 x 4 1/4 inches). Cut to just within platemark 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. GRIVEL 67 (2d state).

        Loci communes D. Petri Martyris Vermilii, Florentini, sacrarum literarum in schola Tigurina professoris: ex variis ipsius authoris scriptis, in unum librum collecti, & in quatuor classes distributi

      Londini: Excudebat Thomas Vautrollerius typographus, 1583. Folio. [24] ff., 1147 [46] pp.; 34 cm. Known in English as Peter Martyr, this Italian theologian represented the Catholic cause at the Colloquy of Worms in 1540 but later converted to Protestantism and was influential in Reformed theology and the English Reformation. Because of his adoption of Protestantism he fled Italy for Switzerland and the Reformers, Bucer and Zwingli's writings greatly shaping his thinking; and later, at Thomas Cranmer's invitation, he went to England where he was appointed to a professorship at Oxford University. His influence in England was great and is most noted in the development of the theology of the Eucharist and in the Book of Common Prayer. This is the second Latin edition printed in England of Peter Martyr's "Common Places," here "quam multa ad priorem editionem accesserint, ex admonitione quam prima pagina exhibebit, facilè lector deprehendet." The preface is by Rudolf Gwalther (1519–86), the editor was Robert Masson (fl. 1580), and Josias Simmler (1530–76) provided the "Oratio de vita et obitu . . . Petri Martyris" on op. [17–37] in the preliminaries. It was a posthumous work that gathers portions of his commentaries and writings and organizes them in a way that resembles what 20th- and 21st-century scholars would call "Systematic Theology." => Correspondence to and from fellow reformers (Calvin, Beza, etc.) ends the volume. Binding: Contemporary English blind-tooled calf over wood boards; evidence of leather and hook closures. Covers tooled in a typical late 16th-century London style, in blind, with a central diamond created using only two blind-embossing rolls and a double fillet tool. (We have identified one of the two rolls used.) Surprisingly, searches of NUC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate => only half a dozen copies in U.S. libraries (but unsurprisingly, many in Great Britain). STC (rev. ed.) 24668; ESTC S117884. Oldham, English Blind-stamped Bindings, plates XLVII, HM a (2) 771. Binding as above, well rebacked; leather of two corners lost and refurbished, new endpapers. Library pressure-stamp on title-page, no other markings; pinhole worming, heaviest at front and back; occasionally moderate but generally light, often lightest imaginable waterstaining in upper margins, this in one section also to lower margin up along gutter and impinging on corners of text, and to fore-edge in index. Some age-toning, some stray spotting. Overall actually a very good copy of a book => scarce in the marketplace.

RISM L947 (1583b); two holdings only in the U.S., at the Library of Congress and the Sibley Music Library). First published in Munich in 1567. & & Contains a number of Lassus's best-known lieder in various genres, including sacred lieder, drinking songs and love songs. & & "[Lassus] was one of the most prolific and versatile of 16th-century composers, and in his time the best-known and most widely admired musician in Europe...." & & "... The lieder are few in number only by the standards of Lassus’s prolific output in other genres... The proportion of sacred pieces among the lieder is high, even without counting the volume of psalms; this suggests that the German collections were intended for a somewhat different audience from that of the madrigals and the chansons... The sacred lieder use texts and melodies common to Lutheran and Catholic songbooks with Luther’s Vater unser im Himmelreich [present in this collection]... The psalm settings range from the rather simple tricinia of the 1588 collection (where they alternate with similar settings by his son Rudolph) to the great six-part psalm-motets such as Ich ruff zu dir [present], using paraphrased and cantus-firmus versions of the borrowed melodies, in the French–German volume of 1590. Among the secular texts chosen by Lassus are drinking-songs and lieder in which the bad effects of liquor are lamented (Mein Fraw hilgert) [present]; possibly the constantly expressed preference for wine over beer was a personal one... There are also melancholy and satirical pieces (Die zeit, so jetz vorhanden ist) [present], some love-songs of narrative character, and a few songs of nature-love." James Haar in Grove online& & The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music, with hundreds of items dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries.

Title page of index, compiled by West, misbound after main title page. Interleaves. Octavo (5-3/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary limp vellum with lapped edges, thong ties. Light soiling and edgewear, a few minor stains, a few cracks to text block. Light toning to text, wide margins, extensive underlining and annotations to text and interleaves and endleaves in contemporary hand. An appealing copy. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases. The annotations in this copy are mostly interpretive; some are glosses, cross-references and case references. Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:573. English Short-Title Catalogue S108638.

The first book of this text is of outstanding historical importance. Here, in thirty pages of admirably clear Latin, Cesalpino presented the principles of botany, grouping a wealth of careful observations under broad categories, on the model of Aristotle and Theophrastus. "Caesalpinus's philosophy is Aristotelian: plants have a vegetable soul which is responsible for nutrition and for the reproduction of organisms. Nutrition was believed to come from the roots in the soil and to be carried up the stems to produce the fruit. Hence, the roots, stems and fruit are the main characteristics selected by Caesalpinus as the basis for his classification" (PMM). Cesalpino was the first to elaborate a system of the plants based on a unified and coherent group of notions. By paying little attention to the medicinal uses of plants he raised botany to the level of an independent science. RARE: according to American Book Prices Current, only one other copy has sold in the last 30 years: the Norman copy, Christie's New York, 18 March 1998, lot 62. A copy brought up for auction at Zisska & Schauer in 2012 was withdrawn as being part of the Girolamini library theft. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition of Dodoens’ summation of his botany, the “most comprehensive botanical work, incorporating material from a number of his earlier books, including the Cruyderboeck.” The work divides plants into 26 families, introduces many new species, and also marks a stage in the development of plant anatomy. “It is of interest, too, in that Dodoens here made an attempt at an explanation of the parts of plants. It consists of only a page and a third ‘but the selection of the words explained and the substance of the explanations hit the essential points better than Fuchs.’ (Sachs)” (Hunt 143).

        Foxe's Booke of Martyrs. Volume I

      London - Printed by John Daye, 1583 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. An extremely scarce copy of thefourth edition of one of the most significant sixteenth-century works written,exemplifyingthe time and moodofthe Protestant Reformation, and having a great part to play in the formation of British history and culture. Almost invariably defective, this is thefourth edition after the first of 1563 and the last published in his lifetime. On better paper than the previous editions but retaining the original woodcuts of the first edition, recognised as the best. In this case just missing the title and the first leaf of the dedication to the Queen from the prelims, and the final blank. The whole work in two volumes should have five full page woodcuts as well as the 35 in text cuts in volume onehowever, the complete copy we have seen, has four of these in the second part, leaving us to believe this is complete as volume one with one full page woodcut inserted and unpaginated. Printers details from the last page YY7. The first three leaves are in red and black (the Kalendar). Volume I of two volumes. With one unpaginated woodcut platebetween pages 44 and 45,and thirty-five illustrations in the text. Issue points: many pages are misnumbered as called for, but all are present. Acts and Monuments by John Foxe (versions of which are popularly known as Foxe's Book of Martyrs) is a celebrated work of church history and martyrology, first published in English in 1563 by John Day. The book was lavishly produced and illustrated with over sixty exemplary woodcuts and was the largest publishing project ever undertaken in England. Popularly called The Book of Martyrs, Foxe's own title for the first edition (as scripted and spelled), is Actes and Monuments of these Latter and Perillous Days, Touching Matters of the Church. Foxe's temporal range was from the yeare of our Lorde a thousand unto the tyme nowe present. Following closely on the heels of the first edition (Foxe complained that the text was produced at a breakneck speed), the 1570 edition was in two volumes and had expanded considerably. The page count went from approximately 1700 pages in 1563, to over 2300 pages. Sixty woodcuts became one hundred and fifty, often stellar examples of woodcrafting expertise --and speed. The illustrations could not be borrowed from other texts, as was commonly practiced. They had to be newly cut precisely to illustrate particular details as Foxe wrote the stories of his own living (or executed) contempories, and linked England's suffering back to the primitive tyme. The fourth edition, published in 1583, the last in Foxe's lifetime, had larger type and better paper and consisted of two volumes of about two thousand folio pages in double columns. Nearly four times the length of the Bible, the fourth edition was the most physically imposing, complicated, and technically demanding English book of its era. It seems safe to say that it is the largest and most complicated book to appear during the first two or three centuries of English printing history. Published early in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and only five years after the death of the Roman Catholic Queen Mary I, Foxe's Book of Martyrs was an affirmation of the Protestant Reformation in England during a period of religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants. Foxe's account of church history asserted a historical justification intended to establish the Church of England as a continuation of the true Christian church rather than a modern innovation, and it contributed significantly to a nationalistic repudiation of the Roman Catholic Church. Foxe based his accounts of martyrs before the early modern period on previous writers, including Eusebius, Bede, Matthew Paris, and many others. He compiled an English martyrology from the period of the Lollards through the persecution of Mary I. Here Foxe had primary sources to draw on: episcopal registers, reports of trials, and the testimony of eyewitnesses. For the English Church, Foxe's book remains a fundamental witness t.

Esemplare lievemente rifilato, con qualche inevitabile fioritura ed alone, ma, nel complesso, in ottimo stato conservativo. Pregevole edizione veneziana, curata dal Porcacchi (l'edizione originale è del 1541), del capolavoro della storiografia rinascimentale, "the first history of Europe" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 85), la cui narrazione corre dalla calata in Italia di Carlo VIII sino al sacco di Roma del 1527 e alla caduta della Repubblica Fiorentina, nel 1530. Si tratta della seconda edizione impressa dall'Angelieri dopo quella del 1574. In principio, "Sententie sparse per l'Historia del Guicciardino, et raccolte a utile de gli studiosi", tavola degli autori con cui il Porcacchi raffrontò il testo guicciardiniano, un sonetto del Porcacchi entro cornice silografica istoriata, "Giudicio di Thomaso Porcacchi da Castiglione Aretino sopra l'Historia di M.

"Guicciardini wrote the first history of all Italy within the larger context of the European system of states and thus demonstrated the synchronistic interdependence of political events all over the continent...Bodin and Montaigne were early among Guicciardini's fervent admirers" (P.M.M., 85). "Guicciardini fu il primo storico serio, che rompesse con la storia locale e trattasse in modo universale la storia di un'unità geografica. Fra gli storici che si possono citare come suoi precursori nessuno lo agguaglia...Egli è il primo vero storico che libera la storia dai legami con un determinato Stato. Egli per la prima volta dà una visione esatta della politica intrenazionale" (Eduard Fueter, "Geschichte der neueren Historiographie"). Il Porcacchi (Castiglione Aretino, 1530-Venezia, 1582) fu letterato e storico e primo editore della lezione del testo guicciardiniano nella sua interezza; Remigio Fiorentino (Remigio Nannini) fu scrittore domenicano vissuto tra il 1521 e il 1581.

Vol. in 8vo di pp. (16), 287, (13), leg. antica in p. perg. floscia con lacci - non conservati - e tit. ms. al d.; stemma dei Medici al front. e marca tip. sull'ultima c. della prima segnatura, sotto all'imprimatur; bei capilettera, testatine e finalini. Cop. discretamente conservata, con qualche macchia, piega e segni di usura; antiche scritte ai contropiatti e alle sguardie, timbretto di bibl. religiosa al front. e iniziali mss. ai lati del titolo. Cc. in condizion non uniforme: talora molto ben conservate e talaltra affette da bruniture e arrossamenti, marcati su 7 delle 20 segnature - talvolta (segnatura. P) con differenze nette anche nei singoli fascicoli - particolarità peraltro riscontrata in altri due esemplari; si segnalano tre strappetti ai margini senza danno al t. ed una ampia mancanza all'ang. inf. della c. R1, che arriva a lambire un carattere; margini buoni. Es. discreto di ed. assai rara.
