         Taurica chersones vs. Nostra aetate przecopsca et Gazara dicitur

      Artist: Mercator Gehard ca ; issued in: Duisburg; date: ca1585 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 31 x 40; - description: Map shows the Ukrain with the peninsula Krim and the black sea; - vita of the artist: "Gerardus Mercator (1512 - 1594)He was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician. He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. He is renowned to the present day as the cartographer who created a world map based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. In his own day he was the world's most famous geographer but in addition he had interests in theology, philosophy, history, mathematics and magnetism as well as being an accomplished engraver, calligrapher and maker of globes and scientific instruments. He wrote few books but much of his knowledge is to be found in the copious legends on his wall maps and the prefaces that he composed for his atlas ,the first in which the term "atlas" appears and the sections within it.

         Examen du livre des recreations mathematiques.Rouen, Charles Osmont, 1643, 8vo. With numerous woodcut illustrations illustrating the problems. Contemporary limp vellum.

      - Worldcat (1 copy); for Mydorge: DSB IX, pp. 598-599; Hattab, Descartes on forms and mechanisms, pp. 90-92; Thorndike VII, pp. 593-594. Very rare fourth edition of the commentary of Claude Mydorge (1585-1647) on the Récreations mathématiques by "H. van Etten" (Jean Leurechon). Mydorge corrected the numerous mistakes made by Leurechon in these mathematical diversions and "added several physical experiments as well as comments that he claimed were intended only for his friends". Several of examples and comments by Mydorge, also appear in the works of his friend Descartes, making it "reasonable to conclude that many of the other mechanical problems discussed by Mydorge in this work were also known to Descartes and one can easily imagine Descartes as one of the friends participating in the discussions of these problems alluded to in the prefatory remarks" (Hattab).The "diversions" consist of numerous problems for which a mathematical solution is presented, most of them illustrated by a woodcut. For instance, Mydorge (following Leurechon) informs the reader how to make water in a glass boil without fire, "to make a door open from both sides; to build a bridge all round the earth which will not fall when its supports are removed; to keep all the water in the world in the air without a single drop falling to earth". The third chapter, on fireworks, contains even more spectacular problems, such as "if all the gunpowder in the world were put in a globe of glass or paper and set on fire all at once, what would happen? Nothing, since the pressure would be equal in every direction" (Thorndike).Binding soiled and spine with a few holes; lower part loose in binding. First 50 pages creased; several marks and thumbing throughout. A fair, probably well-used copy.

         Perspectiva. In qua, quae ab aliis fuse traduntur, succincte, nervose & ita pertractantur, ut omnium intellectui facile pateant. Nunc primum in lucem edita. Opera & studio Joannis Combachii.Frankfurt, Wolffgang Richter for Antonius Hummius, 1614. 4to. With 8 full-page woodcuts printed on both sides of four leaves inserted as plates, and numerous woodcut figures and illustrations in text, several full-page. Modern plain paper boards.

      - DSB I, pp. 377-384; VD17 23:236968W; cf. Kemp, The science of art, pp. 26, 211, and 269; Vagnetti DB5. First edition of a famous work on optics by the English natural philosopher and mathematician Roger Bacon (ca. 1220-ca. 1292). Bacon was well read in Arabic and ancient Greek sources on optics and perspective, a subject hardly studied in Europe during the earlier Middle Ages. The main sources for his theories were the writings of Euclid, Ptolemy and Alhazen (Ibn al-Haytham), and he followed Robert Grosseteste concerning the importance of light and in his emphasis on the use of lenses, not only for burning, but also for magnification to aid natural vision. Bacon advised magnifying glasses for old people as well as for people with weak eyes. The Perspectiva belonged to Bacon's Opus maius, compiled in manuscript in 1266-1267. The present edition was based on a medieval manuscript and was edited by Johann Combach (1585-1651), professor of philosophy at Marburg in GermanyWith a stain on the title-page and two on the last blank, probably from removing old stamps, browned throughout with a few small spots, but overall in good condition. Binding with some water stains, but otherwise good.

Davon sind etwas mehr als zweitausend erhalten, in denen Isidor an Mönche, Priester, Bischöfe, Soldaten, Generäle und Kämmerer schreibt, an die Patriarchen Theophilus und Kyrill und an Kaiser Theodosius II. Er übt dabei scharfe Kritik an Missständen der damaligen Kirche, insbesondere am Ehrgeiz, der Liebe zum Luxus und der Bauwut der höheren Geistlichkeit, wo er sich entsprechend einige Feinde schuf. - Eleganter zweispaltiger Druck parallel Latein und Griechisch, besorgt von Jacques de Billy (1535-1581), der als Anhang mit eigenem Titel seine Sacrae observationes beigibt. - Durchgehend regliert, wenige alte Anmerkungen, etwas gebräunt, nur vereinzelt leicht fleckig, etwas die ersten sechs Blatt im Innenrand angeschmutzt, sonst meist sauber. Vorsätze mit neueren Notizen, Einband beschabt. ". [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Strigel, a student of Melanchton, became professor of theology at Jena after studying in Freiburg im Breisgau, Leipzig, and Wittenberg. Disputes with Matthias Flacius Illyricus (1520-1575) led to his departure to the University of Leipzig in 1563, but he was suspended from that post a couple of years later because of suspicions that he held Calvinist views of the Lord's Supper. He finally moved to the Palatinate, where he openly confessed a Reformed understanding of the sacrament and taught at the University of Heidelberg from 1567 until his death in 1569. - I: A few pen underlinings.

      Paris, Apud Claudium Baaleu (.) in Curia Albretica (am Ende: Execudebat Petrus Hury), IX. Februar 1585. - 4 Bl., 706 S., 15 Bl. 12°. HLeder (18. Jhdt) mit Rückenschild und dezenter -vergoldung; Sprengschnitt. Die Ausgabe ist identisch mit der im selben Jahre erschienenen bei R. Rezé (Paris), die ebenfalls Hury druckte; sie geht zurück auf die von Johann Sambucus (János Zsámboki; 1531-84; ungarischer Mediziner; Historiograph von Maximilian II. und Rudolph I.; Jöcher IV, 90) veranstaltete Antwerpener Plantin-Ausgabe von 1566 (vgl. STC French Books, Suppl. 62), von der hier auch die Vorrede übernommen wurde, und enthält wie die Rezé-Ausgabe Beiträge von G. Morelli (Guillaume Morel aus Zono/Bergamo; Leibarzt von Maximilian II.; Jöcher III, 663) und dem Lutheraner David Chytraeus (d. i. D. Kochhoff; 1530-1600; Jöcher I, 1906). Der Drucker Petrus Hury (oder: Hyry) stellte seine Arbeit verschiedenen, teils disparaten Interessen zur Verfügung: So druckte er den prominenten Lutheraner Chytraeus, aber auch den Katechismus des katholischen Heiligen P. Canisius (1588; BM STC English 4568), wobei diese Ausgabe in Englisch und somit entweder für die englischen Religionsemigranten oder die verfolgte katholische Minderheit in England bestimmt war. Auch machte er sich verdient, indem er den kroatischen Humanisten Mirko Mikulic für Westeuropa druckte. Von vorliegender Ausgabe ist (laut KVK im Mai 2017) weltweit nur ein weiteres Exemplar bekannt (HAB Wolfenbüttel). Etwas berieben; Rücken mit einigen kleinen Wurmlöchern; am Fuß einseitig mit kleinem Einriss; Titelei am Kopf stark beschnitten, dadurch geringe Beschädigung des Textes; insgesamt recht knapp beschnitten.

Genova, Rare first edition of this work which Brunet calls ?ouvrage curieux, qui a beaucoup de succès dans le temps? Written to celebrate the unification of the crowns of Portugal and Castille, this comprehensive history of the Portuguese empire includes a chronology of Portuguese kings since 1090. The first book mentions Columbus and the Portuguese settlement in Brazil and also reports on Portuguese activities in Africa and India. In addition, the role of the Jesuits is discussed at length. It also discusses China, Japan, France and the Low Countries. Brunet believes that the name of Conestaggio was a pseudonym and that the work was written by Juan de Silva, condé de Portalegre, who had accompanied Dom Sebastian to Africa as Spanish Ambassador.

         L. Annaeus Seneca A. M. Antonio Mureto correctus et notis illustratus ad Matthaeum Contarellum TT. S. Stephani in Monte Caelio S. R. E. Presb.

      Bartholomaeum Grassium, Rome 1585 - A very handsome copy of this elusive early printed edition of the great Roman Stoic philosopher and statesman Seneca; dating back to 1585, the last work edited by the great Christian humanist Antoine Muret, a copy with good provenance with a Chatsworth bookplate, (even showing shelving information) it also has the coronet and D for the Duke of Devonshire in gilt on the spine, from the famed Chatsworth House library collections of the Dukes of Devonshire. This rare 1585 Muret edition of Seneca was recently studied by the Warburg Institute scholar Jill Kraye [see "The Humanist as Moral Philosopher: Marc-Antoine Muret’s 1585 Edition of Seneca"], who sees it as a yet understudied but key link between the two other important humanist editions of Seneca, the Erasmus edition and the later Lipsius edition. WorldCat (OCLC) lists only 24 copies of this edition worldwide, held at libraries such as Harvard, Yale, the Folger Library and Oxford. It is a handsomely printed edition, a folio, finely rebound with leather spine and gilt lettering; a large full page finely engraved portrait of the famous editor, as well as an engraved printer’s device with a double-headed eagle, and some handsome engraved initials and head and tail pieces. The spine separated into six compartments by five raised bands; title, author and date in gilt. 531pp. (with some numbering irregularities as called for in bibliographies, i.e.on the opposite (verso) side of 509 the page number is 610, on to 615, the opposite side of which is 516 etc, text continuous and correct.], 8 unnumbered pages in the front comprising prefatory material and engraved portrait, 18 unnumbered pages at end, including index. A few old and very faded ink notations in the margin in an early hand, otherwise clean and unmarked. The title page is somewhat worn, appears to have been strengthened and slightly trimmed, page 1 with small corner torn, pages show only minor age-toning. Seneca, the great stern Stoic, needs little introduction to students of ancient Rome; he was one of the greatest Roman Stoic philosophers, who had immense influence in Roman and Medieval history. His works were copied by monks and scribes, and survived to influence Europeans in the Renaissance and early modern period as well as Americans during independence; recently, his works have achieved new prominence. Seneca, or Lucius Annaeus Seneca (often known simply as Seneca, or Seneca the Younger) was born around 4 BC in the Roman province of Spain, he died in AD 65. He was known sometimes as a Middle Stoic, combining elements of Stoicism, Cynicism and Epicureanism in a classic Roman mixture. Seneca wrote clearly and brilliantly about ethics, moral education, psychology and natural philosophy. For eight years he served as an advisor to the Emperor Nero, and attempted to guide his government according to Stoic ideals. The early Christian church believed that he had known Saint Paul and therefore granted his works legitimacy and preserved them. Seneca also inspired early Americans, including John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who praised him as a fine moralist and as an example to the new Republic. Seneca died as bravely as his Stoic ethics commanded -- ordered by Nero who suspected him (wrongly) of treason, he severed several veins, immersed himself in warm bath, and surrounded by friends, calmly died. The editor, Antoine Muret (Latinized Muretus) was one of the most important Renaissance Christian humanists. He was known by many as Europe’s best Latinist -- he only spoke Latin in public orations, and served the French king in that capacity before going to Rome. He was also praised as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, hence this careful scholarly edition of Seneca which has been praised for its accuracy and understanding of the Latin complexities of the great and eloquent Roman philosopher. Overall a fine and very rare edition of the great Roman Stoic, in an important Renaissance edition from a great classical schol [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

CristÛv?o da Costa, better known as Cristobal de Acosta because he published his famous work under this name for the first time in Spanish, in Burgos, in 1578, and as Acosta the African, because he was born in a Portuguese colony in Africa. In Goa (India) enrolled as a physician in the service of the troops of the newly appointed Portuguese viceroy Luis de Ataide (1517-1580). In East India he followed the troops throughout Goa, Cochin and other settlements, where alongside his medical activity he kept several gardens of medicinal plants that he used as one of his sources for botanical information.The studies he wrotes about plants during his travel in west India were so important for his life, that when he returned in Burgos (Spain) he focused all his efforts writing his main work"Tractado Delas Drogas, y medicinas de las Indias OrientalesÖ "The entire set of woodcuts that illustrated the Burgos edition of Acosta' s book can only be admired in either that first edition or in the Venetian edition of Francesco Ziletti, (our copy) who commissioned a copy of them for their use in the Italian translation, but larger in size and more beautifully printed than in the original, and he printed this edition in 1585, the edition to which this copy we have on offer corresponds. This edition is the only one that reproduces the text in its entirety, as well as the original prints, including the two devoted to the elephants. Indeed, the last chapter of the book leaves the plant kingdom and offers a 'Treaty on the Elephant and its qualities', the first Western study on the Indian elephant, where along with its description and behaviour, the virtues of their tusks are described.

         Auli Gellii Noctes Atticae, seu Vigiliae Atticae. Quas nunc primum a magno mendorum numero magnus veterum exemplatium numerous repurgauit

      Paris: Henri Estienne. Good with no dust jacket. 1585. Leather. This book is bound in full leather; it is complete, with pagination as follows: [6] 23 [1 bl. 3 1 bl.] 587 [1 bl. 74 2 bl.], 16 3 1 bl. 205 [1 bl.] pp. Dark smooth leather with attractive blind stamping, spine appears to have been beautifully repaired. Renewed endpapers, a book plate on the end paper and a red stamp plate on the verso of the first free endpaper, title page has red ruling, a black ink mark at bottom, text clean and unmarked, some quires more browned than others (as is common with this edition), minor foxing but otherwise quite nice, binding strong. This is the very scarce and important early 1585 imprint, bound in full handsome calf, the so-called Stephanus edition of the classical Roman author Aulus Gellius, a fascinating collection of anecdotes of ancient world on everyday life as well as history and philosophy, with beautifully engraved initials and head and tail pieces -- and something of a bibliographical mystery. . According to the bibliographer Dibdin, this book was printed at the instigation of the famous Parisian printer and classicist Henry Stephanus, and although for years it was also attributed to his printing house, the real printer is still unknown. In addition to the complete works of Aulus Gellius in 587 text pages, it includes a separate 205 page book, separately numbered, of Stephanus' detailed notes on Gellius., which are of considerable value.The title page of the book indicates that notes of Ludovic Carrionus are appended but, as in most extant copies of the work, they are not (they were apparently only included in a few copies at the end of the print run). This edition of Aulus Gellius was printed after a two-year period during which no Estienne edition was printed at all, owing to his ambitious works on Thesaurus and Plato which nearly ruined the famous printer. 'The second part of the volume consists of Estienne's valuable commentary on 7 books of Gellius... Estienne has provided his text and the various parts of his commentary with several dedicatory prefaces, addressed to various prominent French magistrates...the longest and most interesting preface, however, is addressed to his son Paul. This famous preface is the most important autobiographical document Henri Estienne has left to us, and gives us our only glimpse into his father's household' (Schreiber). It is a rare and esteemed book, called at the Pinelli sale ALiber admodum rarus@, WorldCat (OCLC) lists only 14 copies held worldwide; 8vo 8" - 9" tall .

Philippi on recto of following blank page. On the cover there are also three date stamps. The oldest is a cardinal stamp with the date 1769 handwritten over it. The next stamp, circular, is dated much later, from 1870 or 1871, with the acronym M.D.I.P.D.R.D.I. shaped around the circumference and C.G. on the inside, corresponding to the  Ministero Della Istruzione Pubblica Del Regno D Italia. Commissione Governativa . [Giovanni Battista Sguario narrates that  with the occupation of Rome by the Italian troops (20 September 1870) and the annexation of Lazio to the rest of Italy, religious corporations were abolished and forced to give their book collections to the municipalities. The Government Commissioner, Ettore Novelli, before closing the convents definitively, expropriated any furniture, documents and books. It was at this time that  Commissario Governativo. Ministero della Istruzione Pubblica del Regno d Italia was purposely written in the volumes, with a round stamp with the initials M.D.I.P.D.R.D.I. and C.G. in the centre.  (...) all ended in the purest abandonment for over ten years and many volumes of value disappeared to be sold to antique dealers, especially foreign ones. The British Museum of London has (...) a book without author or printer, published around 1520 that details, on the last page, the date of entry:  ¡1873! ](1). Finally, the third stamp, also round, is from the library of the Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary, in Philadelphia, founded in 1832. The same stamp also on front pastedown.- // Refs.: Brunet, II, 1662; Cordier, Sinica 1878, col. 3, Sinica 1904, col. 8; Palau, 105495; Salvá, II, 3330; Sabin, 27775; Tavera, Biblioteca Filipina, 1199. We state that this copy corresponds to a preliminary state of the first edition for two main reasons. The first is that to print the book in Rome, Juan González de Mendoza requested the licence and papal privilege. The just elected Pope Sixtus V issued a motu proprio dated 13 June 1585, granting him privileges for the translation of the work into Italian and for its publication, both in Spanish and in Italian. In the usual copies from the first edition, the papal motu proprio occupies the complete recto and verso of leaf (2. Next, on leaves (3 and (4 and the recto of leaf (5, a dedication by the author to Fernando de Vega y Fonseca (1529-1591) appears, the then president of the Royal India Council. And between that dedication and the note to the reader, which occupies leaves (6 and (7, on the verso of leaf (5 a last minute notice from the author is found, warning that when he had just about  finished the printing of this book, with only the motu proprio from His Holiness left, I received a letter from Spain, on the first of July of this year of 1585, from Father M. Fray Pedro de Rojas, Visitor of the Province of Castilla... where he said that a caravel had arrived from the Indies, a few days earlier, where there were letters shipped to him... in which he was notified about the King of China was looking forward to receiving, the King and his kingdom, the Catholic faith and doctrine from the Gospel ... I consider this such good news, that I didn t want to fail communicating it here to the Christian community... The information in this announcement would imply that the printing of the work was not completed until the month of July in 1585. Instead of this sequence of preliminaries, the copy that we offer lacks both the text of the papal license and of the author s final note to the reader, but without this implying that it is missing any leaves because they are all present, with the two sides of leaf (2 and the verse of leaf (5 blank. In addition to this, leaf (3 is wrongly signed with the same signature, (4, as the following leaf. The only reasonable explanation is that the state of the first ply of this edition was printed before the printing of the License and the last minute note; therefore, prior to July of 1585. If the author had requested the license from the Pope, commenting on the title-page that he had the Pope s privilege, and was eager to spread the (false) news of the conversion of the  King of China , it is not conceivable that he had agreed to disseminate the work without the license and without the announcement. From this point of view, therefore, the copy offers a state that corresponds to a time earlier than that of the dissemination of the work. The second reason, which ratifies the previous hypothesis, is that the title-page of our copy has clear variations compared to the well-known title-page of the first edition, that is: 1.- On the imprint only  a costa de Bartholome Grassi is written, without the mention of the printer following,  en la Stampa de Vincentio Accolti . 2.-The coat of arms of Fernando de la Vega y Fonseca appears more centred on the title-page because the last line of text  Con vn Itinerario del nueuo Mundo , which on usual copies appears over the coat of arms, is absent here. Our thesis is that, as the work was printed by Accolti and includes the Ytinerario del Nuevo mundo, the title-page had to be recomposed for the dissemination of the work. And then there was a problem with one typo because the majority of copies have a bad impression or are missing the letter  u in the word  Agustin , in the ninth line(2) A letter that, however, is perfectly and clearly defined on the title-page of this copy something that can only be possible because the typo had not suffered any damage yet. Therefore, in our opinion, the copy we are offering would be one of the few assembled with the sheets as they were printed before July 1, 1585: before the forgotten mention of the printer, as well as the note informing readers that the volume contained the Ytinerario del nuevo mundo were added to the text-block; before the wrong (4 signature of the third leaf was corrected; and before the motu proprio from the Pope and the latest announcement to the reader were composed to be printed in the spaces reserved for this purpose. On the completeness of this issue, it should be stated that also contains the blank leaf that follows the index, which is missing in many other copies. The only information we have managed to get in relation to the existence of volumes released in this preliminary state is that, in 1964, the New York bookshop Edward Eberstadt & Sons put up a copy for sale, whose whereabouts we haven t succeeded in locating, for the not so insignificant figure of 3500 dollars of the time. Although from the title-page, González de Mendoza already claims to have been ordered to travel to China, he himself said he could never complete the journey. In early 1580 he went to Mexico (where he had previously been in his youth, between 1562 and 1574), with the intention to continue on to the Philippines and to go from there to China, but failed to do so. Nevertheless, he took the chance to consult all the manuscripts stories of the travels to Philippines, the East Indies and China made by the Franciscan, Augustinians or Jesuits missionaries that he could found in Mexique, halfway in the Spanish route from Spain to its Philipines possesions. With the accounts of Augustinian Martín de Rada (1533-1578), from 1575 -whom Gonzalez de Mendoza calls Martin de Herrada(3), and of the Franciscans Pedro de Alfaro (¿-1580) and Agustín de Tordesillas, from 1579(4), he wrote the second part of the book. At the beginning, he arranged a first part to present the kingdom of China to Europeans, created with information from other correspondence and from the books printed in China that Rada had brought with him in 1575 (of which he makes a mention of in Chapter 18 of the first part)(5). And to complete the book that he was publishing following the express request of Pope Gregory XIII, deceased during the printing of the book(6), he added, upon transcribing it, the Ytinerario within which Father Martin Ignacio de Loyola (?-1606) wrote an account of his journey from Seville to China and his return journey following the Portuguese route through India and the Cape of Good Hope. As the success of the work was extraordinary and within a few years more than 30 editions were made in Spanish, Italian, French, English and Latin, copies of the first edition became increasingly rare. In the world of bibliography is often mentioned the milestone that on pages 104-105 Chinese characters were printed for the first time in a European workshop. Also that Europeans were surprised to learn that in China the press had already been working for 500 years before it began in Europe. For our part, as the author is often a little neglected in these accounts, we would like to point out several comments made by his own hand to bring him closer to the forefront. Such as the comment made where he compares the Chinese invention of the press with that of another Chinese invention, artillery:  ... of what I said, I think it is clear what was proposed in this chapter of the antiquity of the artillery of that kingdom, and having been invented there, where it also seems clear that the invention of printing took place, something so contrary to the first invention and with such different effects, as we can see . Or like the news that he casually dropped in about one of the most common types of printed texts in China in the 16th century:  there were many bookstores with greetings already printed that people went with to visit other houses, which were put into little bags that were kept under the ends of their sleeves to gift them upon arrival, as a good manners present. Or, finally, the inclusion of the new a at the redraft of the chronicle of Martin Ignacio s trip from Mexico to the Philippines in his book, in the recounting of the visit to the Island of Thieves (Mariana Islands), and how these islands owed their name to the pillaging that Magallanes suffered there, it seems that Gonzalez de Mendoza could not help ruling that its inhabitants  can Lecture to the gipsies from Europe (7).

Those who do so will be surprised with the realisation of the number of manuscripts that González de Mendoza dealt with at the time, all of them in Mexico at the time, and currently dispersed across numerous archives in different countries.
