Ruscelli Girolamo
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ruscelli, Vicenzo
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

SCOT, REGINALD
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ivo, Saint, Bishop of Chartres
1584. Paris, 1584. First edition. A Collection of Legal "Letters" by an Important Canon Lawyer and Bishop 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. $1,500. * 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."

WILLER, Georg
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.

GASTALDI JACOPO/ORTELIUS ABRAHAM.
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.

Abraham ORTELIUS (1528 - 1598)
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

Camillo Giulio
In Venetia, appresso Fabio, & Agostin Zoppini fratelli 2 tomi, 1584.2 tomi in un vol. in-12°, pp. 311;154, 1 b., legatura in piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al d. Buona copia. 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....

VITRUVIUS POLLIO Marcus
In-8 (mm. 242 x 180), p. pelle mod., eleganti cornici decorate e tit. oro ai piatti, dorso a cordoni con fregi oro, tagli marmorizz., 4 cc.nn., 505 pp.num., ornato da capilett. figur. e illustrato da numerose xilografie nel t. di vario formato. Terza edizione della traduzione del Barbaro, che deriva da quella veneziana del 1567, con nuovi legni per le xilografie. Il quarto capitolo del V libro di Vitruvio è dedicato all?armonia e alla proporzione armonica in relazione all?architettura. Nel trattato vi sono alcuni esempi di pentagrammi musicali, schemi armonici e una tavola nella quale l?armonia è distinta in tre generi: armonico, cromatico e diatonico. L?interesse per queste teorie fu in stretta correlazione con alcune problematiche connesse col teatro e con l?acustica. Con il risveglio culturale del Quattrocento fu ripresa la teoria pitagorica dell?armonia, teoria che Vitruvio aveva affrontato nel suo trattato, ma che aveva limitato all?acustica teatrale, seguendo l?impostazione del ?Timeo? platonico. Questa ristampa della traduzione del Barbaro, a 17 anni dall?edizione precedente, si rese necessaria per l?irreperibilità del volume, a conferma dell?estrema importanza e fortuna della lezione dello studioso veneto. Cfr. Studi e documenti d?architettura, n. 8, 45 - Fowler,413 - Cicognara,720. Leggerm. corto del marg. sup.; con lievi aloni margin. e qualche ingiallitura o fiorit., ma certamente un buon esemplare.

Waghenaer, Lucas Janszoon
Antwerp, 1584. Fine original hand colored map of the Algarve coastline (southern Portugal bordering the Mediterranean) from Waghenaer's "Spieghel der Zeevaerdt", the earliest one of this region. Mariners' Mirror was an atlas of nautical charts and sailing directions, with navigating instructions for western European coasts, the first of its kind in maritime cartography which set the standard for future map makers. Engraved by Baptist and Jan van Doetecum. With a highly ornate blue and rose bordered cartouche & sea monsters and galleons below. Image: 20 1/8 x 14", paper size: 20 1/4 x 14". Issued folded; with a small marginal repair to the top edge of the map near the fold, very good condition. "This work holds a unique place among the printed rutters of the sea in the 16th century because it is the first printed rutter with charts. Further, it outranks any other rutter of its period, with its splendid presentation of charts and text; as such it stood as a model for the folio-size pilot-guides with charts in the 17th century. Thanks to the unparalleled skill of the engravers, Baptist and Johannes van Deutecom, the original ms. charts by Waghenaer were transformed into the most beautiful maps of the period. The composition and the adornment have greatly contributed to the splendour of what originally were simple sketch-charts; the typography of the Plantijn printing house at Leiden further added to the quality of the book. In its concept, the text follows the traditional composition of the 16th century pilot-guides but the charts form a new element. One remarkable feat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Centre fold split in the lower margin. A repaired tear in the lower margin. Loss of a very small piece in the upper margin. A nice copy.. A beautiful map of Austria issued in 1584. The map includes Vienna and the Danube river. Many tributaries and lakes are clearly depicted. Among them Lake Neusidl. The map almost looks like a modern art work with three large fields in different colours. It was published for the the world´s first atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" published by Abraham Ortelius. The atlas was originally published in 1570 and then issued in many editions in several languages. The last edition in 1612. The present map was drawn after earlier maps by the austrian Wolfgang Lazius, a carthographer, historian and currator of the collections of the Holy Roman Empire. Text at the verso in latin.

Scot is as sharp as he is humane in his attack on "witchmongers" who seek "to pursue the poore, to accuse the simple, and to kill the innocent", pointing out how unreasonable it is to accuse vulnerable persons of having "power which onelie apperteineth to God". The first four books list the procedures of identifying witches and using torture to procure confession, found in the Malleus Malificarum as well as Jean Bodin's work. Scot quotes heavily form his sources, and refutes them only after. He suggests to his readers that they skip the next book, which discusses in detail the many "filthie … [Click Below for Full Description]
