Durling 2826 ; manque à Nissen, Pritzel et Hunt. Édition originale. Importante compilation de traités d'histoire naturelle de la Renaissance traduits en français par Geoffroi Linocier, "médecin de Tournon en Vivarais". Elle est basée surtout sur l'Historia plantarum, Lyon 1561, d'Antoine Du Pinet. L'ouvrage est complété par six autres traités (chacun avec sa propre page de titre) dont cinq sont tirés des œuvres de Gessner et d'autres éminents scientifiques de cette époque. On y trouve donc, après l'important chapitre de botanique, des détails sur les plantes aromatiques exotiques, sur les quadrupèdes, sur les oiseaux, sur les poissons, et sur les serpents. Le dernier chapitre, illustré de planches d'instruments gravés sur bois, est exclusivement consacré à la distillation des "eaux de toutes sortes de plantes, & la vertu qui en provient". Parmi les belles gravures on remarque celle consacrée aux momies ("plusieurs tiennent que la mumie n'est autre chose que le Pissaphaltum."), au rhinocéros, et au caméléon. Très bon exemplaire (en dépit d'un défaut de papier en marge blanche sur un feuillet) de ce charmant volume illustré. [Attributes: First Edition]

        De Rebus in Hibernia Gestis, libri quattor

      Christopher Plantin, Antwerp 1584 - FIRST EDITION, 4to, pp (ii) 3-264 (viii). Roman letter, some Italic, woodcut initials, printer’s device on title page. Light age yellowing, very slight foxing, a good, clean, wide margined copy in mid 19thC olive morocco, spine and edges gilt. FIRST EDITION of Stanihurst’s interesting and controversial history of Ireland. Opening with a dedicatory epistle to his brother-in-law, Patrick Plunkett, Baron Dunsany, Stanihurst, writing in Latin, gives a detailed description of Ireland’s geographical and enthnological features; one of his aims, he tells Plunkett, is to dispel Ireland’s obscurity and raise continental awareness of the country. The next three chapters narrate the Normans’ invasion of Ireland in 1169 (in support of Diarmait Mac Murchada, the ousted King of Leinster) and their subsequent settlement there, with extended descriptions of the arrival of Richard of Clare, Earl de Pembroke, known as Strongbow. The account ends at the beginning of the 13th century and the accession of King John. One of Stanihurst’s main sources was the 12th-century Welsh historian Giraldus Cambrensis, and the work ends with an annotated appendix of extracts from his Expugnatio Hibernica, from which Stanihurst’s numerous errors, pointed out by later editors, are believed to have derived. Stanihurst positions himself as a descendant of the Norman Irish settlers, rather than a ‘true’ Celtic Irishman, and is credited with coining the term ‘Anglo-Irish’. He was later criticised for his ‘want of sympathy with the native Irish and his prejudiced misrepresentations’ and his ignorance of the Irish language (DNB). Born in Dublin in 1547, the son of the Recorder of Dublin and Speaker of the Irish Parliament, Stanihurst went to Kilkenny Grammar School and thence to University College Oxford and both Furnivall’s Inn and Lincoln’s Inn. His tutor at Oxford was Edmund Campion, the Jesuit martyr, and Stanihurst accompanied him on research trips for Campion’s own history of Ireland. Raphael Holinshed asked Stanihurst to finish the Irish chapter of his Chronicles, but the result incurred the disapproval of the Privy Council. Due to political unrest and his association with Campion, Stanihurst was arrested and imprisoned in 1580. On release, he fled to Leiden, known for relative religious tolerance, where he published an innovative - and widely mocked - translation of the Aeneid, attempting to preserve Virgil’s original hexameter scansion. He also worked as an alchemist and advisor in Spain, under Philip II, but never returned to Britain, dying in Brussels in 1618. BM STC C16 Dutch p. 192. Voet. V 2228A "The work was actually printed at Leiden, but a number of copies received a title page with Plantin’s Antwerp Imprint.". Shaaber S 292. Adams S 1633. Brunet V 508.

        A Discourse upon Usurie.

      Roger Warde, London 1584 - RICHARD CRAKENTHORP'S COPY 8vo. ff (xvi) 201 (iii) Black letter, two large historiated woodcut initials, contemp. autograph Richard Crakenthorp on title, faint C19 library stamp of the Birmingham Law Society on B1 and O3; general age yellowing, mostly light. A good, clean, well margined copy in full modern calf antique. Second and last contemporary edition of Thomas Wilson's classic work on all aspects of usury in the form of a dialogue or, more accurately, speeches made between a rich merchant, a zealous preacher and a civil lawyer. This is the first authoritative work on the then vigorously debated subject by an English author and provides considerable insight into the economic life of Elizabethan England as well as a history of usorial prohibitions . Wilson himself was a doctor of civil law and sometime master of the court of Requests, unsurprisingly therefore, the lawyer has the best part. Wilson's professional background does bear fruit however as no common lawyer of the period would have been able to cite so freely the legal writers of ancient Rome, of the mediaeval schools and of modern European jurisprudence. The tone of the work is more practical than academic however, with propositions explained and justified by the use of practical and financial examples. What is particularly interesting to the modern reader are the techniques employed not to contravene the usury laws whilst still financing transactions and earning a good return on one's money. If these rules did nothing else they gave rise to a wide range of very sophisticated commercio-financial arrangements which otherwise would not have seen the light of day for centuries to come. The autograph on the title is almost certainly Richard Crakenthorpe's (1567-1624) Protestant divine and author of three published works, all controversial and anti Catholic, and "Popish Falsifications" that has survived in ms. only.

Antwerpen: Plantijn 1584). * Das von dem Mühlhausener Pfarrer Caspar Henneberger geschaffene neue Kartenbild des Preussenlandes (die Erstausgabe war 1576 als grosser Holzschnitt im Format 106 x 96 cm bei Georg Osterberger in Königsberg erschienen) gelangte in die Hände des bedeutenden Landkartenstechers Abraham Ortelius in Antwerpen, der die Karte verkleinerte und 1584 als Kupferstich in seinen Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" aufnahm. Aus der grossformatigen Vorlage hat Ortelius auch die ungewöhnlichen dreierlei Meilenmasse übernommen: grosse, mittlere und kleine Meilen. Diese Differenzierungen hatte Henneberger aus den Informationen der bei der Anfertigung der Karte befragten preussischen Fuhrleute entnommen: je nach Jahreszeit und Bodenbeschaffenheit kam man auf gefrorenen, trockenen oder schlammigen Wegen mehr oder weniger zügig voran, deshalb schienen die Distanzen zwischen den Orten grösser oder kleiner zu sein. Auch landeskundliche Details hat Ortelius von Henneberger übernommen: Vor der Samlandküste finden sich zwei Hinweise, dass man hier bei bestimmten Windrichtungen viel Bernstein finden könne: "Flante Zephyro hic multum Succini colligitur" (bei Westwind wird hier viel Bernstein gesammelt), in der Rominter Heide sind drei Hirsche und ein Jagdhaus "Romittisch Jagdtpude" eingezeichnet.

        Letter signed ("Caterine").

      Chenonceau, 2. IX. 1584. - Folio (34 x 24 cm). 1 p. on bifolium. Brown ink on paper, written in a clear gothic hand. Folded for sending and addressed on the outside, with a slot for a ribbon and traces of a red wax seal. Watermark: B [crowned heart] P, (with the feet of the letters toward the centre of the sheet). An informative letter written by the French regent Catherina de' Medici concerning the exchange of gifts between France and the Ottoman Sultan. Written in French, from Catharine's favourite palace, Château de Chernonceau in the Loire valley near Tours, to Jacques de Germigny (d. 1587 or 1596), French ambassador to the Ottoman Empire. Catherine, mother of King Henry III, last of the Valois kings of France, was a powerful and colourful figure (familiar in literature from the historical novels of Alexandre Dumas), often running the government for her son. In the present letter she arranges an exchange of gifts with the Ottoman Sultan Murad III (1546-95). Germigny had written to her on 17 July concerning various items he had selected, and she asks him to send the gifts from the Sultan to André Hurault de Maisse (1539-1607) at Venice, who was France's ambassador there. She also suggests a change in one item they are giving the Sultan: "J[']ay receu v[ost]re l[ett]re du xvij de juillet avec la liste des presens que ma faict la sultane mere du grand seigneur lesquelz vous me mandez avoir retenuz par devers vous pour me les faire apporter quant vous partirez de par dela pour venir trouver le Roy monsieur mon filz. Et pour ce quil pourra passer plus de temps jusques la que je ne le vouldrois et que je seray bien ayse d[']avoir plustost lesd[its] presens je vous prie de les envoier au Sr de Maisse ambassadeur du Roy monsieur mon filz a Venize lequel me les fera tenir par apres. Au surplus j[']ay a vous dire touchant Le Rouge que desire recouvrer de moy lad[ite] Sultane semblable a celluy que je luy ay cy devant envoie quelle trouve meilleur, et mieulx faict que celluy d[']Espaigne, que je n[']en ay plus maintenant, et ne seay en sorte du monde la recepte et facon de le faire qui est cau[s]e que je ne puis contenter a p[rese]nt lad[ite] Sultane de ce qu[']elle desire de moy en cest endrent, dont du suis bien marrye mais j[']adviseray si j[']en pourray avoir le moien par cy apres dont je vous advertiray [.]". Counter-signed by her Secretary of State, Pierre Brulart, and addressed to "Mons[ieur] de Germigny, ch[eva]l[ie]r de l[']ordre du Roy monsieur mon filz, son con[seill]er et amba[ssa]deur en Levant". The two-leaf folio was folded twice on horizontal folds, then briefly once more on a vertical fold without a sharp crease for sending. A cut through the sixteen layers would have had a ribbon through it and one can see traces of red sealing wax around the slot on the back. The letter was stored folded horizontally, and eight small worm holes run through the eight layers, but they barely touch an occasional letter of the text. There are also a few small marginal tears. In very good condition and with the whole sheet of paper untrimmed.

In questo celeberrimo manuale l?A. narra l'origine degli scacchi, spiega le regole del gioco (che corrispondono quasi completamente a quelle che conosciamo), dando per la prima volta un quadro completo delle aperture allora note. "Rarissima prima traduzione italiana" e seconda edizione (la prima è di Alcalà, 1561) di questo fondamentale trattato sugli scacchi del monaco spagnolo Ruy Lopez de Sigura (Zafra, 1530 ?" Madrid, 1580), uno dei primi grandi giocatori di scacchi e consigliere e confessore del re Filippo II. Nel 1560 si recò a Roma per alcuni impegni legati alla sua condizione di ecclesiastico e nella capitale dei papi ebbe occasione di sfidare alcuni dei più forti scacchisti italiani, tra cui Leonardo da Cutro, il celeberrimo "puttino", all'epoca accreditato come uno dei più forti del mondo. López non disponeva soltanto di un'eccellente conoscenza teorica: anche nella pratica la sua forza di gioco era enorme. Vincendo infatti l'importante sfida contro Leonardo da Cutro, venne riconosciuto dai contemporanei come una sorta di campione del mondo ante litteram.. Leonardo ebbe modo di prendersi la sua rivincita nell'agosto del 1575, quando Filippo II invitò a un torneo, presso la sua corte, i migliori scacchisti provenienti dai territori governati dalla corona spagnola (e, quindi, di buona parte delle penisole iberica e italiana): oltre agli stessi López e Leonardo, presero parte all'agone il siracusano Paolo Boi e Alfonso Cerón di Granada. La competizione è a tutti gli effetti il primo torneo magistrale della storia di cui ci sia giunta notizia. Il torneo fu vinto da Leonardo che ricevette un premio in denaro e l'esenzione dalle tasse della sua città, Cutro, per i successivi vent'anni, ma soprattutto ottenne la fama di essere il più forte giocatore al mondo. López perse la sfida diretta contro Leonardo per 2 a 3, patendo la rimonta dell'italiano dopo avere vinto le prime due partite, e dovette cedere le armi anche a Boi. La prevalenza degli italiani fu così completa, e lo scettro degli scacchi passò definitivamente dalla Spagna all'Italia. Cfr.

      Frankfurt (Francofurti), Apud haeredes Andreae Wecheli, 1584. - 8vo. LXXII,592,(88) p. Pigskin 18 cm (Ref: VD16 H2515. Hoffmann 2,236)(The 16th century binding of this book is important in the context of the cultural history of Lutheranism. The center panel of the frontcover shows a portrait of Johann Friedrich I, the Magnanimous, Elector of Saxony, 1503-1554, in full armour, with 3 lines of text: 'Victus eras acie, fidei con / stantia tandem victorem / ante homines fecit et ante deum'; on the backcover the blindstamped coat of arms of Johann Friedrich, who became after his death a kind of protestant Saint. He still is, for the 3rd of March, the day he died, is still commemorated in the evangelical church of Germany. Because this portrait also figures on a book held in the Penn Libraries, where it is described as 'Elector of Saxony, possibly August I, 1526-1586' (Cicero, Philosophical works, 1565, Call no: LatC C4855.10 1565), we will provide some details. Johann Friedrich I was an ardent follower of Martin Luther, he was a lifelong promotor of the reformatory movement and one of the movement's most important political leaders. Johann Friedrich was defeated and taken prisoner on the 24th of april 1547 by troops of the emperor Charles V in the neighbourhood of Mühlberg, 'mannhaft fechtend, am Backen verwundet' (fighting bravely, wounded on the cheek). He had to abdicate, but he refused to be converted to Catholicism. In captivity his political role came to an end, but in prison he became a protestant Saint. The duke was released in 1552, and his way home was a real triumph. In 1551 Matthes Gebel made a medal with the portrait of a bearded duke, with a scar on his left cheek. There is also an engraved portrait with a scar made in 1547, the year of the battle of Mühlberg. This scar on the left cheek, which is apparantly part of the iconography of the Duke, is clearly visible in the blindstamped portrait on the front of this book. So this must be a portrait of Johann Friedrich I) (Condition: Cover soiled and worn at the extremities; some damage to the head and tail of the back, and to the frontcover; corners heavily bumped; 2 old ownership entries on the title; small inscription on the front pastedown; small inscription on the verso of the title; occasional old red ink underlinings; some marginalia in the Apologia) (The provenance of this copy is Saxonian and Lutheran. 1: An old inscription on the flyleaf: 'Tout avec Dieu. Pour temoigner ma tres bonne amitie et affection, que je porte a Monsr. Jean Trölschen, je luy ay donne ceste livre priant de le prandre a bon gre, et deme(u)rant jusque au tombeau, Son bien humble et bien affectione serviteur M. Jean Ernst Gerard Jenensis'. There are two Lutheran theologians bearing the name 'Johannes Ernst Gerhard', father (1621-1668) and son (1662-1707). Both were born and educated in Jena. (ADB 8,772) Who 'Jean Trölschen' was, we do not know. 2: On the title in old ink 'Ex libris M. Johann Rolle . Vicar'. 3: Below the imprint an old ink inscription: 'Sum ex libris Christoph.
