        "Praecatio d. Caeciliae pro virginitate conservanda orantis" (Über der Tür).

      1585. Kupferstich von J. Sadeler d. Ä. nach M. de Vos, Antwerpen ca. 1585. Ca. 21,5 x 27,5 cm (Darstellung). Gebräunt. Am linken Blattrand kleine Papierfehlstelle (hinterlegt) ausserhalb der Darstellung. Verso Abklatsch einer (Inkunabel?)-Rubrizierung. British Museum 1937,0915.113. Hollstein 305 (Sadeler). Hollstein 1086 (Maarten de Vos) [nach BM].. Kupferstich nach M. de Vos (1532-1603) von J. Sadeler d. Ä. (1550-1600), eine der ältesten Darstellungen gestochener Noten. Rechts unten signiert "Ioan. Sadler scalp. et excud / M. de Vos figuravit". Unterhalb der Darstellung 16zeiliges Gedicht in vier Spalten "VIRGO, fida Dei ... locus" signiert "D.R.L.D." Dargestellt ist die singende Heilige Caecilie, begleitet von einem Engel an einer kleinen Pfeifenorgel. Beide blicken auf einen Notenständer, der zwischen ihnen steht und auf dem sich die aufgeschlagenen Noten der fünfstimmig notierten Motette "Fiat vor meum" von D. Raymundi (Lüttich 1558-1646) befinden. Breitrandiges Exemplar des seltenen und gesuchten Blattes. Die gute Erhaltung ist womöglich auf die Aufbewahrung in einem Buch (Inkunabel?) zurückzuführen. St Cecilia with an angel playing an organ; between them is an eagle decorated lectern with music, showing the motet in five voices shown as an open choir-book. This is one of the earliest examples of engraved music.

Ore Novelment Imprimee & Corrigee, Ouesque Plusours Bones Notes, Letters, & Figures en le Margent, Et en le Pag. Mesme. Queux Notes Referre les Cases al Abridgement del Brooke, [et] Auters Lieurs del Ans. Et les Letters & Figures Monstront Toutes les Pointes del Arguments & Cases. London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1585. Colophon dated 1583. xxxi, xix, xv, xviii, xli, ii-xvi, ii-xvi, xiii, ii-xxvi, ii-xxx, ii-xxix, ii-xxix, ii-xxviii, xxxii, xvii, xvii, xiii, xli ff. Folio (10-1/2" x 7-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets and large central ornaments to boards, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed with marbled paper. Negligible light rubbing to extremities. Title printed within handsome woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials. Some toning to text, light foxing in a few places, minor worm holes to margins in a few places, light soiling to title page. Occasional annotations in tiny early chancery hand, some affected by trimming, interior otherwise clean. An attractive copy. * Covers regnal years 1-16, 20 and 21 Henry VII. With an index of cases, side-notes and cross-references to Brooke, Fitzherbert and other authorities. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the Year Books. As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings in Norman England they are of crucial primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. They also provide a richly detailed portrait of contemporary English life, customs and manners. The origin of the Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintains that they were records of cases made by lawyers for personal use. Though it is not known when the first manuscript volumes were compiled, it is clear that cases can be found to date from the 1270's and the series continues to 1535. Printed editions of the Year Books were first issued by William de Machlinia between 1481 and 1482. The present volume belongs to the so-called "Quarto Edition." Not a set in the conventional sense, thes.

        Summula [...] casus conscientiae, summa brevitate atq[ue] facilitate complectens.

      Passau, Matthias Nenninger, 1585.. (5), 225 Bll., 2 l. w. Bll. Grün ankolorierter Holzschnitt am Titel. Blindgepr. Schweinslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit 2 intakten Schließen. Hs. Rückenschildchen. Dreiseitiger Farbschnitt. 8vo.. Seltene erste Ausgabe des kirchenrechtlichen Handbüchleins für den Beichtigergebrauch; bis ins 17. Jahrhundert nachgedruckt. Der aus Vigevano stammende Dominikaner Cattaneo (1545-1609) war Bischof von Chiemsee. "Im Besitze großer Gelehrsamkeit, mit den akademischen Graden geschmückt, wurde er als Prediger und Professor und in den verschiedenen Ordensämtern mit vieler Auszeichnung verwendet. Dann des Lehramtes enthoben, erhielt er die überaus schwierige Stelle eines Provinzials für Ungarn. Die religiösen und politischen Wirren des Landes und die äußeren Gefahren von Seite der Türken machten dort einen Mann von ungewöhnlichem Geschicke nothwendig. Dieses bewies er aber in solchem Grade, daß ihm auf dem Generalcapitel zu Rom 1589 von neuem die ausgedehntesten Vollmachten übertragen wurden [...] Er hat eine Anzahl wichtiger, zum Theil oft aufgelegter theologischer Werke verfaßt. Besondere Erwähnung verdien[t] seine oft erschienene "Summula casuum conscientiae" [...] Er soll auch ein gewandter Kenner des Hebräischen gewesen sein und ein Werk 'Gegen die Hebräer' geschrieben haben" (ADB). - Der hübsche Einband mit Justitia-Platte vorn und Lucretia-Platte hinten (gering fleckig; kaum berieben). Über VD 16 ein einziger Nachweis (BSB München); lt. OCLC kein Exemplar in Amerika. - VD 16, C 1734. ADB IV, 74. Heimbucher I, 503. OCLC 165989646. Nicht bei Adams und BM-STC German.

        Conciliorum omnium, tam generalium, quam provincialium [...] volumina quinque.

      Venedig, Domenico Nicolini [da Sabbio], 1585.. 5 Bde. (22) Bll. (d. l. w.), 24 Bll., 1226, (2) SS. (6), (11) Bll., 1 w. Bl., 870, (2) SS. (4), 18 Bll., 986, (2) SS. (6), 15 Bll., 1 w. Bl., 927, (1) SS. (2), 14 Bll., 791, (1) SS. Titel durchgehend in rot und schwarz gedruckt. Jeder Band mit 2 versch. Druckermarken an Titel und letztem Bl. Blindgepr. Schweinslederbände der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit jeweils 2 intakten Schließen. Dreiseitiger Farbschnitt. Folio.. Die seltene fünfbändige Nicoloni'sche Konziliensammlung, die an Reichhaltigkeit alle früheren Sammlungen übertraf (vgl. LThK). - Alle Bände bis auf den ersten mit hs. Schenkungsvermerk am vorderen Vorsatz: "Dises Buech ist dem Herrn Spitelmaister unnd seinem Convent zu Memmingen von Herr Jacob Fugger dem Eltern verehrt worden Imm December Ao. 1588"; alle Bände am Rücken durch zeitgenöss. Beschriftung ausgewiesen als "Donum generosi dni. Baronus Jacobi Fuggeri" (das ursprüngliche Vorsatzblatt im 1. Band wohl verlorengegangen). Jakob Frh. Fugger (1542-98; ab 1560: Herr von Babenhausen, Wellenburg und Boos) war Sohn des Bankiers Anton Fugger (dem Neffen und Nachfolger Jakob Fuggers "des Reichen"). Der Beiname "der Ältere", der sonst den 1469 gestorbenen Stammherrn des Hauses bezeichnet, grenzt unseren Jakob von seinem gleichnamigen Neffen ab (1567-1626), der 1588 noch in Rom studierte und hernach Fürstbischof von Konstanz wurde. - Das im 13. Jh. gegründete Kreuzherrenkonvent im allgäuischen Memmingen widmete sich der Armen- und Krankenpflege. Nach einem Großbrand im Jahre 1477 wurde die Spitalkirche als gotische Hallenkirche mit Turm wiedererrichtet, womit der Anlage weitgehend die heutige Gestalt gegeben war. 1803 wurde das Kloster säkularisiert; die Bibliothek wurde zerstreut und die vorliegende Reihe kam hernach - wie durch Stempel am Titel ausgewiesen - in die Bibliothek des Franziskanerklosters Bad Tölz (nach der Säkularisierung 1828 wiedererrichtet und 180 Jahre später geschlossen). - Durchgehend mit kl. Wurmspuren; in Bd. 2 auch stärker (vor allem zu Beginn und gegen Ende; auch den Text betreffend). Die prächtigen, außergewöhnlich gut erhaltenen Schweinslederbände zeigen innerhalb einer Bogenfriesrolle und zwei negativ gestochenen Ornamentrollen insgesamt drei verschiedene, teils mit "I. B". bezeichnete Plattenstempel, von denen zwei bei Haebler nachgewiesen sind. Haebler nennt mit Jakob Bitmer auch einen im gegenständlichen Zeitraum (1587-93) tätigen Augsburger Meister, dem die Einbände möglicherweise zuzuschreiben sind. Einbände vereinzelt schwach berieben; Bd. 2 mit kl. Schabspur am Hinterdeckel, sonst von perfekter Erhaltung. - Adams C 2773. Edit 16, CNCE 13060. LThK VI, 185. OCLC 6967756. Nicht im BM-STC Italian. Zu den Plattenstempeln: Haebler I, 55f.: I.B. VI, Platten I u. II.

Complete apart from the missing blank. Early ownership inscription Johannes Stafford on back of last printed leaf. *This collection of works on the history of Britain and on Wales was edited by the Welsh historian David Powel (c.1552-1598) - "In 1585 Powel published three books in a single volume: (1) the Historia Britannica of Ponticus Virunnius, a summary of Geoffrey of Monmouth; (2) the Itinerarium Cambriae and the Descriptio Cambriae of Giraldus Cambrensis — this is the first printed text of Giraldus, but Powel's patriotism prevailed over his historical conscience, and he left out Giraldus's unfavourable judgements upon the Welsh; (3) a letter, De Britannica Historia recte intelligenda" (Welsh Biography Online). The DNB notes that Powel dedicated the 1st book to Sir Henry Sidney, to whom he had recently become chaplain - the 2nd book is dedicated to Sir Philip Sidney. Text in Latin. One of the earliest published works on the history and topography of Wales.

The most significant issue is about 20 leaves with considerable contemporary ink stains affecting the text, a few other leaves with less significant staining. (What is interesting about these stains is that they only occur on either the first or last pages of gatherings - which suggested that the stains occured in the print shop, once the sheets were folded but before binding. Perhaps this was an early proof, intended for disposal but subsequently bound up.) In several cases the ink has corroded the paper with a little loss of text (ff. A with slight loss to top corner just affecting headpiece; ff. Cc with about 15% loss; ff. Gg with about 5% loss, ff. Mm with minimal loss; NT title page with small hole removing the 'D' of Domini, and affecting a few letters of the following page). A few headlines shaved where trimmed off centre but generally the margins are good. A good copy with an interesting, if unexplained history, and good provenance. . Full Leather. Very Good/No dust jacket. 4to.

        Lettera annale portata di Novo di Giapone Da I Signori Ambasciatori delle cose iui successe l'anno MDLXXXII

      Venice: I Gioliti, 1585. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo., 103 pp. Bound in old vellum. Discrete former ownership stamp on title. Gutter margin of title reinforced; inconsequential toning, otherwise excellent. Rare early edition of this Jesuit letter containing news of missions and activity in Japan from the year 1582, the only edition (of 5 printed that year) to contain a title-page advertising the famous Japanese embassy of 1584-86. Significantly, the work also discusses the embassy, the participants and their noble lineage, and expresses the hope that the embassy will prove a convincing sign of the Jesuit's spectacular success in Japan (p. 7). The present imprint of this edition comprises the first entry in Boscaro's bibliography of printed works related to the embassy. It thus stands at the head of nearly 50 works printed in 1585 (alone) to record and commemmorate an event that-in addition to providing a public relations coup for the Jesuits-became a watershed moment in cross-cultural exchange between the Orient and the West: "no Japanese emissaries to Europe, either before or since, aroused comparable interest or enthusiasm" (Lach). In the annals of international relations between Europe and Japan in the 16th C, it is particularly noteworthy "how the physical presence of the Japanese [in Europe] stimulated an unexpected number of typographical presentations" (Boscaro), of which this particular Gioliti edition with the titlepage advertising the embassy-Portata de Novo Dal Giapone Dai Signori Ambasciatori-is the very first. Boscaro notes that there were four other editions of Coehho's letter published in Italy in 1585 around the time the embassy arrived in Venice on June 25 (including another by Gioliti), but none of these uses the embassy as a way to market itself.The report itself is also a significant document of the embassy's genesis: Coelho composed it in February 1582, the month that the embassy of four Japanese Christian converts departed from Nagasaki. In it, he describes the ongoing missionary activity across the country: e.g. in Hirado, Amasuka, Bungo, and especially Funai (Oita City), the home of a thriving Jesuit college. Presumably, the contents of this letter as the title suggests were "brought from Japan by the eminent ambassadors" as the latest news on the Jesuits current success in that faraway land.Though the embassy did not reach Lisbon until August 1584, it eventually was, as Coelho had hoped, a resounding success: from 1584-86 the four young Japanese nobles were the object of intense curiosity wherever they traveled, and they were treated to lavish receptions in Lisbon, Madrid, Florence, Rome, Venice, and other cities throughout Catholic Europe.OCLC: Cornell, NYPL, HU and Newberry. * Boscaro 1; Alt-Japan 812; Sommervogel II.1267; Cordier 78; Laures 169; Pagès 22; Lach I.2.690.

        American drawings of John White, 1577-1590, with Drawings of European and Oriental Subjects in two volumes, I, a Catalogue Raisonné and a Study of the Artist, II, Reproductions of the Originals in Color Facsimile and of Derivatives in Monochrome

      White was the expedition artist on Sir Walter Raleigh's first colonizing voyage to Roanoke Island in 1585. During a 13 months period he made watercolor drawings of the Algonquian speaking Indians of North Carolina, their settlements, and flora and fauna essential to their material culture, depicting for the first time many species native to the 'New World', and under Harriot's direction, drawing, "the most accurate map of any complex land mass-littoral charted in the 16th century" (Tise). Despite their extraordinary significance, the watercolors weren't published until the 20th century. They were primarily known through the highly influential engravings made from them by Theodore de Bry. This much cited scholarly work, 12 years in the making; "planned on a far more ambitious scale than any previous attempt"; has the first color facsimiles of White's drawings, 76 superb, original size pochoir (stencil print) plates, using color collotype printing and by hand application of secondary color with foil stencils. Limited to 620 examples, 300 for purchase in the U.S., this is no. 191 (stamped on the justification page), complete in the publisher's boards and slipcase with mounted labels. Printed in Great Britain by University Printing House, Cambridge, title pages with red & black letters, volume 1-text, volume 2-160 plates including 76 pochoirs printed on 1 side of the leaf, color collotypes in Paris by Imprimerie Duval from color photographs of the originals by Peter Parkinson and hand colored in Issy-Les-Moulineaux at Ateliers M. Beaufumé, (Thus, in actuality, the pochoirs are watercolors on a collotype printed base.), monochrome plates from photographs by the Studio of the British Museum, b/w collotypes made in Amsterdam by L. Van Leer and Co. To this day, the book is a highlight publication for both institutions. CONDITION DETAIL: Ex-library with minimal markings: in each volume, front pastedown with mounted label of New Jersey Historical Society stamped with 3 entries, gift of, deaccessioned and Dewey no., spines near foot with handwritten Dewey no. Volume I: Pages: Fine. Volume II: Plates: Very Good: slight wavy cockling. Boards: Nearly Fine: Vol. I: trace tap to top outer corner and small spot of bottom edge wear. Gilt: bright: Title Labels: slight rubs. Binding: Fine. Case: G+: no cracking, splitting, chips, etc, but with slight overall rubs, slight soiling and soiled inner paper lining. Summary: White's drawings are the first done by an English artist with any degree of scientific accuracy in North America, showing a range of objects and peoples for which no other early visual record remains: the details of dress, housing and village life are a primary source for knowledge of American Indian culture of the period. "White?s drawings are immensely important as unique anthropological records. From the first they were a much used visual reference, drawn on endlessly by illustrators." (Peter Campbell) White also worked under Thomas Harriot [1560?1621], the geometer and surveyor, "to produce a series of highly accurate maps" (Encyclopedia Virginia); by a significant margin, the most accurate and detailed of an area of the future U.S. to that time. "Whereas prior cartographers made use of chains to measure the width and height of land features and crude reckonings of the shape of bodies of water, Harriot-with compass, astrolabe and protractor-was able to triangulate the Outer Banks from fixed points." (Tise) The watercolors were sold in an album to the first Earl of Charlemont in 1788 by White's descendents. The British Museum acquired the album (damaged from stopping a fire) in 1866 and it is preserved in their Print Room. Availability: Scarce: Edition sold out within months of publication and there are more than 214 examples held by institutions. Volumes Size: Folio, 39.4 x 29 cm or 15.5 x 11.42 inches. Format: Publisher's wine cloth sewn with putty endpapers, top edges gilt, upper panels stamped in blind and decorated with White's heraldic shield design in gilt, spines with mounted black morocco title labels with gilt letters and borders and black cloth slipcase with lunette die cuts for slipping out volumes, inside lined with plain cream paper, upper panel with mounted 117 x 85 mm beige label with White heraldic shield design in black, and stating, John White of London Gentleman. Pagination: Confirmed complete; in addition to White's North American subjects, plates include engravings from de Bry, related works from the Sloane album, White drawings done in Puerto Rico and Florida, and the Pict suite, and Oriental subjects. Volume I: xvii, prelims, preface, ix-xiv, (1) page, 179 pp., (2) pp., with White album title autograph frontis, 4 figures, texts with footnotes, selected bibliography, pp 156-162, and index, pp 163-179.

        Lettera annale portata di Novo di Giapone Da I Signori Ambasciatori delle cose iui successe l'anno MDLXXXII

      I Gioliti Venice: I Gioliti, 1585. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo., 103 pp. Bound in old vellum. Discrete former ownership stamp on title. Gutter margin of title reinforced; inconsequential toning, otherwise excellent. Rare early edition of this Jesuit letter containing news of missions and activity in Japan from the year 1582, the only edition (of 5 printed that year) to contain a title-page advertising the famous Japanese embassy of 1584-86. Significantly, the work also discusses the embassy, the participants and their noble lineage, and expresses the hope that the embassy will prove a convincing sign of the Jesuit's spectacular success in Japan (p. 7). The present imprint of this edition comprises the first entry in Boscaro's bibliography of printed works related to the embassy. It thus stands at the head of nearly 50 works printed in 1585 (alone) to record and commemmorate an event that-in addition to providing a public relations coup for the Jesuits-became a watershed moment in cross-cultural exchange between the Orient and the West: "no Japanese emissaries to Europe, either before or since, aroused comparable interest or enthusiasm" (Lach). In the annals of international relations between Europe and Japan in the 16th C, it is particularly noteworthy "how the physical presence of the Japanese [in Europe] stimulated an unexpected number of typographical presentations" (Boscaro), of which this particular Gioliti edition with the titlepage advertising the embassy-Portata de Novo Dal Giapone Dai Signori Ambasciatori-is the very first. Boscaro notes that there were four other editions of Coehho's letter published in Italy in 1585 around the time the embassy arrived in Venice on June 25 (including another by Gioliti), but none of these uses the embassy as a way to market itself.The report itself is also a significant document of the embassy's genesis: Coelho composed it in February 1582, the month that the embassy of four Japanese Christian converts departed from Nagasaki. In it, he describes the ongoing missionary activity across the country: e.g. in Hirado, Amasuka, Bungo, and especially Funai (Oita City), the home of a thriving Jesuit college. Presumably, the contents of this letter as the title suggests were "brought from Japan by the eminent ambassadors" as the latest news on the Jesuits current success in that faraway land.Though the embassy did not reach Lisbon until August 1584, it eventually was, as Coelho had hoped, a resounding success: from 1584-86 the four young Japanese nobles were the object of intense curiosity wherever they traveled, and they were treated to lavish receptions in Lisbon, Madrid, Florence, Rome, Venice, and other cities throughout Catholic Europe.OCLC: Cornell, NYPL, HU and Newberry. * Boscaro 1; Alt-Japan 812; Sommervogel II.1267; Cordier 78; Laures 169; Pagès 22; Lach I.2.690.
