        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, Chateau 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 Andre 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.

        Le Imprese Illustri. Aggiuntovi nuovamente il Quarto Libro da Vincenzo Ruscelli da Viterbo.

      Francesco De Franceschi, 1584 - 1583, in Venetia, - 4 libri in numerazione continua in un vol. in-4° (245x174 mm), pp. (28), 496, 8, 82, (2), legatura coeva in piena pergamena floscia con titolo manoscritto al dorso e sul taglio inferiore. Frontespizio inciso con bordura architettonica con figure allegoriche e stemma del dedicatario, Guglielmo Gonzaga, Duca di Mantova e del Monferrato; nella cornice più piccola del frontespizio, impresa editoriale con allegoria della Pace effigiata come donna seduta con cornucopia nella destra e fiaccola capovolta nella sinistra. Altri tre frontespizi incisi, rispettivamente all’inizio del II, del III e del IV libro, 2 tavole a doppia pagina, 145 emblemi incisi in rame di varia grandezza, anche a piena pagina. Alcuni aloni sulle ultime carte, le due tavole a doppia pagina sono leggermente rifilate, ma bella copia fresca e con le incisioni ben impresse. Edizione definitiva e preferibile per completezza alle precedenti (il quarto libro compare in edizione originale; la prima edizione dei restanti tre libri è del 1576) di uno dei maggiori libri di emblemi del Rinascimento italiano, pregevolissimo per la dovizia e l'eleganza delle incisioni, effigianti, entro ricche bordure, i più svariati soggetti: animali, uccelli, piante, sole, stelle, ecc. Gli emblemi incisi a piena pagina sono per sovrani, principi e personaggi di alto rango, i più piccoli per quelli di minore rilievo; i due emblemi a piena pagina sono rispettivamente per Carlo V e Filippo II. Il Ruscelli, ben noto poligrafo viterbese nato attorno al 1504, morto a Venezia nel 1566, fu fondatore dell'Accademia dello Sdegno di Roma, traduttore della "Geografia" di Tolomeo, curatore di edizioni di classici, primo commentatore dell'"Orlando Furioso", editore del "Canzoniere" del Petrarca e del "Decameron", autore di trattati sulle imprese ("Le imprese illustri") e di altri noti volumi ("Del modo di comporre in versi", "Commentarii della lingua italiana"), tra i quali, forse, l'anonima compilazione dell'"Alessio Piemontese". Fu amico dell'Ariosto, di Bernardo e Torquato Tasso, dell'Aretino e del Dolce (questi ultimi due divennero poi suoi acerrimi rivali) e la sua attività editoriale fu spesa tra Roma e Venezia, dove pubblicò per importanti stampatori come il Sessa e il Valgrisi. Praz, Studies in XVII Century Imagery, 482. Mortimer, 449 e 450 (altre edizioni): "Useful for not only the devices themselves but for the coats of arms included in the elaborate borders on most of the devices and for miscellaneous information about the owners".

        Le imprese illustri del S.or Ieronimo Ruscelli. Aggiuntovi nuovam. te il quarto libro da Vincenzo Ruscelli da Viterbo. Al serenissimo principe Guglielmo Gonzaga Dvca di Mantova et Monferato

      In Venetia: appresso Francesco de fracescu Senesi, 1584. Leather Bound. Small quarto. [28], 496pp; 82pp. Completely illustrated throughout with a wide variety of full-page & vignette-size engravings (often as chapter headings), as well as numerous decorative tail-pieces and woodcut initials. The title-page to Book I is guarded at the inner margin, and has a few repairs to the fore-edge; a few illustrations are trimmed a little close to the edge (especially the folding plates at p108 & p195-- and for some reason the second folding plate duplicates the first). In a contemporary vellum binding, splitting a bit in two places at the rear joint, some other bubbling and cracking to the rear cover; a sound copy though, with a large majority of the plates in very nice condition. In general many impressions are on the 'lighter' side but crisp, and clean. Small private library bookplate inside the front cover, mid-twentieth-century owner's name in ink, light ink stamp on the title-page's inner margin; a Very Good copy. // One of the more famous of Italian emblem books, published nearly twenty years after the noted alchemist Girolamo Ruscelli's death, by his brother Vicenzo. In addition to reprinting the 1566 original edition, this 1584 version contains a fourth book by Vincenzo. Though there is not evidence of its being excised, our copy appears to lack an 8pp section preceding this fourth book. Image or additional images available upon request

        THE DISCOVERIE OF WITCHCRAFT, WHEREIN THE LEWDE DEALING OF WITCHES AND WITCHMONGERS IS NOTABLIE DETECTED, IN SIXTEEN BOOKS . . . WHEREUNTO IS ADDED A TREATISE UPON THE NATURE AND SUBSTANCE OF SPIRITS AND DEVILS

      London: [Henry Denham for] William Brome, 1584. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. A Desirable Copy of one of the Great 16th Century English Books, Ours a Remarkably Lucky Survival. 184 x 140 mm (7 1/4 x 5 1/2"). 14 p.l., 352, [4], 353-560, [16] pp. FIRST EDITION. Early (probably 17th century) black morocco, covers with gilt roll-tool border of alternating crown devices, palmettes, and fleurs-de-lys, spine gilt in diapered compartments, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With decorative woodcut initials, eight woodcut charts in the text, and four full-page woodcuts of conjurers' devices. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of Holland House. Toole Stott 618; Hall, "Old Conjuring Books," pp. 47-62; Osler 3950; Norman 1915; STC 21864. Vague wear to leather, spine gilt rather muted, but the early binding very expertly restored now, solid and quite pleasing. Title page somewhat soiled, the text trimmed close at head with occasional grazing of headlines and page numbers, light, inoffensive dampstains on about a third of the leaves, usually confined to the corner margins (see below), four gatherings with small wormhole at gutter, occasional minor smudges and other trivial imperfections, but still an excellent copy internally--especially in relative terms--of a book almost always found defective or, if complete, in woeful condition. One of the major publications from a 16th century British press, this is a rare complete copy of the earliest English skeptical attack on the belief in witches; as a by-product, it is also the first English account of the conjurer's art. Our copy is a remarkable three-fold survival in that it has escaped the order by James I to destroy all copies, has held up under the typical avid use of a work on such a fascinating topic, and (of particular interest in the present case) has emerged from the ravages of the London Blitz. A man of reason and science, Reginald Scot (1538?-99) was appalled at the frequency of witchcraft prosecutions in England, which nearly always ended with the conviction of some mad, or merely poor, old woman. His indignation, deepened by attendance at the trial of Margaret Simons in 1581, spurred him to write this treatise denouncing the belief in witches and other supernatural manifestations as against both religion and reason. He divided so-called witches into four categories: the poor and marginalized, mostly women, who were subject to the hostility of their neighbors; individuals who were mentally disturbed and deluded into believing they had supernatural powers; conjurers who used sleight of hand and other tricks to fool people into believing they had magical powers; and genuinely malevolent individuals who had indeed harmed others, but with poison rather than witchcraft. Scot compares the manifestations of witches' apparent supernatural powers to the impressive dexterity and illusion of jugglers and magicians. The four large woodcuts here depict the tools employed by such entertainers--trick knives and awls that gave the appearance of piercing one's head or tongue, and a large wooden contraption used in a beheading illusion. His comparisons are apt and convincing, and, as such, his presentation comprises the original exposition in English of the art of the conjurer. Scot's denial of the existence of demons and the supernatural was actually considered heresy by the church, and it particularly raised the ire of King James, who had written his own work on demonology, a fact that led to the order to burn Scot's book. Defenders of Scot included John Webster, among others, and one Anglican cleric later observed that the "Discoverie" was "one of the few instances in which a bold spirit opposes himself to the popular belief, and seeks to throw protection over a class of the defenceless." This copy was once in the celebrated library at Kensington's Holland House, assembled by Henry, third Lord Holland (1773-1840), where it remained until September of 1940, when the building was ravaged by German bombs. The volumes that survived the resulting fire were invariably damaged by rain that fell while the library was open to the skies--our volume bears some pale waterstains from this disaster. It was one of the "rare and beautiful volumes" salvaged from Holland House and sold at Hodgson's in May of 1948. One rarely sees complete copies of "The Discoverie of Witchcraft," and when they do appear in the marketplace, they are almost always in terrible shape; furthermore, the work almost never surfaces, as here, in an early binding.

[14], 260 [i.e. 256], [xiv] ff. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered title to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear, spine ends and corners bumped, hinges starting, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns. Attractive woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, heavier in a few places, faint dampstaining to lower corner of text block. Fore-edges of title page and following three leaves carefully mended with no loss to text. Early annotations to front free endpaper, small signature to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. Ivo, Bishop of Chartes, was an important canon lawyer who played a key role in the resolution of the investiture crisis. The most significant conflict between church and state in the medieval era, it concerned the authority of European monarchs to control the appointments, or investitures, of bishops, abbots and other church officials. This collection of 285 opinions, or "letters," discusses legal aspects of political, institutional and religious subjects. Several deal with the investiture crisis and its background. Other editions were published in 1585 and 1610, the latter designated "Editio Secunda." OCLC locates a handful of copies in North America, 1 in a law library, UC-Berkeley, which has a 1610 edition.

Spines very slightly rubbed at head and tail, corners very slightly worn, old private library number label on first pastedown of Volume I, title page laid on old paper, missing tip of top corner, slightly browned, early signature across centre, some pages lightly age-browned, intermittent pale damp-staining, occasional small light stains, many leaves trimmed, occasionally affecting side notes or running title, occasionally just catching the edge of an illustration, small chip to 1 fore-edge margin, 1 lower corner torn off, with loss of side note and part of 1 word of text, 1 small top corner torn off, no loss, tiny closed tear to 1 upper margin. Bindings tight and firm. A good sound set of a scarce work, rare in first edition. The first 2 parts of this work, L'Histoire des Plantes and L'Histoire des Plantes Aromatiques, qui croissent en l'Inde, tant Occidentale qu'Orientale, are a translation by Geofroy Linocier of Antoine du Pinet's Historia plantarum first published in Lyon in 1561. Pinet (d. 1584) condensed the work of the Italian botanist P. A. Mattioli to produce one of the earliest pocket herbals. Arranged alphabetically, each plant is illustrated in woodcut, named in several languages and described briefly including information on where the plant can be found, and what its "qualities" were. The five remaining parts were added by Linocier who took the information from Gesner the Swiss physician and naturalist and other authors: L'Histoire des Animaux a quatre pieds; L'Histoire des Oyseaux; L'Histoire des Poissons; L'Histoire des Serpens; Entier discours et maniere de distiller les eaux de toutes sortes de plantes, & la vertu qui en provient. Adams D1146 and L734; Brunet, III, 1090-1091. Although in Part II plants from Florida, Nicaragua and other South American locations are mentioned, the work is not listed in Sabin.

      23 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern boards. Frankfurt am Main: 1584. The spring 1584 catalogue of the Frankfurt Book Fair. The catalogues of the Frankfurt Book Fair, issued twice a year by Georg Willer starting in the autumn of 1564, created a revolution for the book trade. "Before that date printers visiting the fair must have had to write out by hand countless lists of new books to send to their customers: thereafter they could send copies of the fair catalogue to the local booksellers all over Europe, who in turn passed them on to their customers...The fair catalogue was a co-operative effort: the printers coming to the fair sent in advance title-pages of the books they were bringing, so that Willer could arrange them in subject order before printing his catalogue."-Pollard & Ehrman, p. 77. These "catalogues represent the first international bibliographies of a periodic character, attempting to list every six months all new publications issued in Europe, and they can be considered the prototype of today's Books in Print. The books are arranged by subject; for the first time, place, publisher, and date are always mentioned."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 24-(according to Breslauer and Folter, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the autumn 1568 issue at Harvard). All Willer catalogues are extremely rare. According to OCLC, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the 1574 issue (but see above). It is interesting to note that Dr. Breslauer did not have any 16th-century issues. The earliest copy in the Broxbourne Library is spring 1577. Fine and fresh copy. Some offsetting from opposing pages. From the library of Thore Virgin (1886-1957). .

        Eiusdem Chronicon de Regibus Francorum

      1584. Ivo, Saint, Bishop of Chartres [c. 1040-1116]. Juretus, Franciscus, Editor. Eiusdem Chronicon de Regibus Francorum. Paris: Apud Sebastianum Nivellium, 1584. [14], 260 [i.e. 256], [xiv] ff. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary vellum with lapped edges, early hand-lettered title to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear, spine ends and corners bumped, hinges starting, vellum just beginning to crack through pastedowns. Attractive woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, heavier in a few places, faint dampstaining to lower corner of text block. Fore-edges of title page and following three leaves carefully mended with no loss to text. Early annotations to front free endpaper, small signature to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. Ivo, Bishop of Chartes, was an important canon lawyer who played a key role in the resolution of the investiture crisis. The most significant conflict between church and state in the medieval era, it concerned the authority of European monarchs to control the appointments, or investitures, of bishops, abbots and other church officials. This collection of 285 opinions, or "letters," discusses legal aspects of political, institutional and religious subjects. Several deal with the investiture crisis and its background. Other editions were published in 1585 and 1610, the latter designated "Editio Secunda." OCLC locates a handful of copies in North America, 1 in a law library, UC-Berkeley, which has a 1610 edition.

        Pervviae Avriferae Regionis Typvs/Florida/Gvastecan

      Three maps on one sheet; the first covering Columbia, Equador and Peru, the second; Mexico on the Gulf side, and the third; Florida and southern U.S. coast. Although the map of Florida was one of the most influential maps of the area, establishing the format for many that followed. The other two maps on the sheet are equally important and are among only a few maps of Spanish origin printed in the 16th century. Bearing in mind they are maps of the centre of Spanish activity in the New World and also the gold trade. It seems unbelievable that the Spanish would have allowed the information to be used. Ortelius' source was probably Geronimo Chaves himself, Spanish Hydrographer to the King. From "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" by Ortelius , latin edition of 1603. Copperplate with later hand colour, in good condition.Van den Broecke 15. Anversa Antwerpen 460 335

        Italiae novissima descriptio avctore Iacobo Castaldo Pedemontamo.

      Incisione in rame, 360x510, testo latino.Prima edizione in splendida impressione della seconda carta d?Italia, che dal 1584 rimpiazza la lastra precedente: il più evidente elemento di diversità sono le due figure di Nettuno e della sirena ora affiancati e non più abbracciati. Tratta da ?Theatrum Orbis Terrarum?, il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo; la geniale intuizione di Ortels, latinizzato successivamente, fu appunto questa: prima d?allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione ed i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti ?Atlanti Lafreriani? erano costituiti su richiesta raccogliendo carte di alcune zone, ignorando le altre. Ortelius riunì in un unico corpus la produzione cartografica eterogenea del periodo, costituendo la base per un?impresa editoriale di enorme successo, pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612.Esemplare splendido, in freschissima impressione, con insignificante restauro marginale alla piega centrale ed una piccola mancanza restaurata in prossimità di Cremona.

CAMILLO, Giulio, detto Delminio. - Nacque nel Friuli circa il 1480. Mandato a Venezia vi intraprese i primi studi di umanità si interessò agli studi di cabala e di filosofia ermetica, entrò nell'ambiente degli Asolani, se è vero che quella fu l'occasione in cui Erasmo, allora a Venezia per la stampa degli Adagia, divise col C. più d'una volta il letto. In questi anni (e già - sembra - dal soggiorno a San Vito) matura, sulla spinta dei suoi interessi retorico-oratori, mnemotecnici ed ermetico-cabalistici, dapprima l'idea d'una enciclopedia delle scienze organizzata secondo l'armonia del corpo umano e, infine, l'idea di un teatro, di un vero teatro ligneo - in scala ridotta - di stile vitruviano, come proiezione reale dell'arca della memoria. In esso il C. intendeva rappresentare, per "luoghi" materiali, una vera topica o alfabeto universale comprensivo di tutte le arti e le scienze, che, visualizzate per mezzo di simboli e memorizzate in cartigli distribuiti in sette ordini o gradi, avrebbero costituito una summa paradigmatica dello scibile e una via spedita a cogliere e impossessarsi di ogni più minuta nozione. Questo "edificio della memoria" avrebbe dovuto rappresentare in una visione unitaria la serie organica e armonica dell'universo, cabalisticamente suddiviso in mondo sovraceleste, celeste e sublunare....

        Orlando Furioso nuovamente adornato di figure di rame da Girolamo Porro Padovano.

      in Venetia, appresso Francesco de Franceschi Senese, 1584. 1584 In-folio antico (285x195mm), pp. (40), 654, (32) di incipitario delle stanze del poema, (2) bianche + 43 ff. di "Osservationi del Sig. Alberto Lavezuola, sopra il Furioso di M. Lodovico Ariosto" + 2 ff. b. Legatura antica in p. pergamena rigida con dorso a 4 nervi rilevati (restauri alle cerniere). Frontespizio con titolo entro sontuosa bordura architettonica incisa su rame. 51 magnifiche tavv. incise su rame da Girolamo Porro a p. pag., una in principio di ogni canto proemiale (46 per il "Furioso", 5 per i "Cinque Canti"). Come nella totalità degli esemplari la tavola XXIII figura due volte, sostituendo la tav. XXIV; tale tavola conteneva una raffigurazione di San Giovanni e di Astolfo che al momento della stampa dell'opera venne direttamente soppressa in quanto ritenuta blasfema. I rami sono basati su quelli della precedente edizione del 1566 del Valgrisi. Antica firma di possesso obliterata al margine superiore del frontespizio. Bruniture consuete di non grave entità. Ex-libris nobiliare. Bell'esemplare nell'insieme. "È questa, a parer di molti, la più sontuosa edizione del Furioso. Certo, superba essa appare per le incisioni su rame a piena pagina del Porro e per quelle, altrettanto leggiadre, che inquadrano gli argomenti dei singoli canti" (Agnelli / Ravegnani).
