Later full vellum, title on label with gilt impression. 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.

        Ova paschalia sacro emblemate inscripta descriptaque.Ingolstadt, (colophon: widow of Joan. Simonis Knab), 1672. 2 parts in 1 volume. 8vo. With engraved title-page, engraved vignette on the title-page of the second part, and 103 engravings in the text (portrait of Ferdinand III of Bohemia and, 100 engraved emblems and 2 others). Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      Landwehr, German emblem books, 555; Praz, p. 504; cf. The John Carter Brown Library online. Reissue of the enlarged second edition of an emblem book by the Jesuit Georg Stengel (1585-1651). The first (1634) and second (1635) editions were published at Munich by Nicolas Henricus. Every chapter is headed by a finely engraved emblem in an egg-shaped form, with 4 small additional views in the corners. "In this most curious of emblem books, the author takes the egg as inspiration for meditations on Easter and the Eucharist. One hundred egg-shaped emblems explore the meaning of the egg within a Catholic theological perspective" (John Carter Brown Library). The range of meanings assigned to the egg through the ages provides a veritable paradise for the ardent iconologist. Great attention is shown for detail in both the emblems and the corner views, all engraved with excellent care. Each emblem is followed by extensive edifying readings. Some of the emblems show indigenous Americans (using them as inspiration for the following meditations) or relate directly to America.With some large water stains on the first three leaves and marginal water stains throughout, some occasional foxing. Otherwise in good condition.

        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 .

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.

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). (1) Director of the Consorzio delle Biblioteche di Viterbo, http://www.bibliotecaviterbo.it/storia_la-biblioteca-comunale-degli-ardenti/ (2) For instance, in the copy of the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, it can only be seen half-printed, in the copy from the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek it is hardly visible and in that of the Biblioteca Nacional de España, it is completely missing (as noted on the corresponding sheet), as also happens in the copy of the Biblioteca de Catalunya in Barcelona and in the copy of the Bibliothèque nationale de France.

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.

        Sermones B[eati] Ephraem Edessenae Ecclesiae diaconi Fratre Ambrosio eremita Camaldulensi, interprete

      In Agro Patavino [i.e., Torreglia]: In Sacra Eremo S[anctae] Mariae de Ruah, 1585. 8vo (15.7 cm, 6.325"). [12], 116 ff.; illus. St. Ephrem of Edessa (ca. 306–73), hymnographer and Doctor of the Church, is notable as being one of the few early deacons to enjoy a wide reputation as a preacher and theologian. He defended the orthodoxy of Nicea against the Arians, and his hymns were foundational for hymnography in both East and West.

Delft, Aelbrecht Hendricksz., 1585. 4to. Disbound.

      STCN (1 copy); Typ. Batava 6418 (same copy); not in Google Books; Picarta; WorldCat. Second copy located of the first and only edition of a proclamation issued by Maurits of Nassau, Prince of Orange, and the State Council of the United Dutch Provinces on 29 November 1585, forbidding maritime travel to and commerce with Spain, Portugal and other lands under the Spanish crown. Maurits issued it at a crucial turning point in the Dutch war of independence from Spain. Antwerp, the cultural and economic capital of the Low Countries had fallen to the Spanish siege in August 1585 and many on both sides expected that would be the end of the Dutch revolt. But the Dutch controlled the waterways and were able to cut off Spain's trade and therefore the sources of finance for the war, finally taking the upper hand in the revolt.An early owner has drawn a band across the blank shield in the title-page. With remnants from a later binding. Very slightly browned and with some minor marginal tears, cuts, etc., but still in good condition. Extremely rare proclamation.

St. Ephrem of Edessa (ca. 306–73), hymnographer and Doctor of the Church, is notable as being one of the few early deacons to enjoy a wide reputation as a preacher and theologian.

Opera & studio Ioannis 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.

With a large woodcut publisher's device on the title-page, 3 large folding woodcut plates, more than 30 woodcuts in the text, nearly all full-page, and numerous woodcut decorations. 18th-century stiff plain wrappers.

      Riccardi I, B-col. 603; Sotheran 15399; Ist. Cent. Cat. Unico (3 copies, 1 possibly a variant). Rare last edition of one of the most popular and best illustrated 16th-century accounts of sundials and their manufacture, with a new chapter describing and illustrating a moondial. After briefly explaining the principles and the various kinds of sundials, it discusses their manufacture. Included are horizontal and wall sundials, and the affect of the location. The last chapter, apparently unique to the present edition, is devoted to the moondial, a sort of nocturnal for telling time at night, but using moonlight rather than the position of the stars. The three large folding plates (about 32 x 38 cm) and the dozens of large woodcuts provide numerous diagrams to aid the reader in both understanding and constructing sundials.

With two early woodcut Chinese characters on p. 200 and p. 202. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      - Cordier, Sinica, cols. 14-15; Sabin 27781, cf. 27775; VD16 G 2658; cf. Reed & Demattè 1. First Latin edition of Juan González de Mendoza's very popular work on China, "one of the most influential early books on China to be published in Europe" (Reed & Demattè). It offers a detailed description of China together with lengthy accounts of several recent missionary voyages. It was first published in Spanish in 1585, when it was the first European book in which Chinese characters appeared. "The book's first section is a survey in three sections that introduces China's history, antiquities, architecture, populace, religious beliefs and ceremonies, agriculture, military organization, and government. Mendoza's volume also contains descriptions of Japan and the Philippines and a chronicle of Spanish missions in the New World" (Reed & Demattè). "According to Nicholas Antonio, the . Itinerary of the New World . was written by F. Martin Ignacio, and was never published separately. The itinerary gives curious details concerning the Canaries, St. Domingo, Jamaica, Cuba, Porto Rico, and especially Mexico. Ortelius, in his Atlas, declared that he had received more information concerning America, from this itinerary than from any other single book" (Sabin). Slightly browned throughout, title-page somewhat soiled and partly detached, otherwise in good condition with some occasional underscoring. Binding stained and with some minor damage to the extremities, but still firm and otherwise good.

Nombreuses erreurs de pagination : après la p. 184, on revient à 165 jusqu'à 186, puis la pagination passe à 209 jusque 216, puis revient à 197. La pagination revient en arrière à 204 jusqu'à 210, puis reprend à 233. Nouvelle erreur après la page 561, qui au verso passe à 512 et poursuit jusqu'à la fin. Le tout sans manque.    Importante édition, tant le genre du poème appelle les commentaires et l'érudition. La première semaine et la seconde sont des poèmes encyclopédiques qui suivent le déroulement de la Genèse et proposent au lecteur la somme des connaissances du monde. La poésie de du Bartas eut un immense succès en son temps, peut-être parce qu'on y trouvait également une foule d'enseignements sur les anciens, la science, les inventions. Goethe en fut un fervent admirateur, elle fut moins goûtée par la suite en France, qui la jugea bonne dans ses idées mais trop débridée à son goût. La Renaissance eut beaucoup de goût pour la paraphrase et la semaine qui est déjà une forme de paraphrase de la Genèse se voit ici à son tour paraphrasée, mais cette fois par un discours scientifique qui éclaire sa mise en œuvre et les dessous de son écriture, tant sur l'astronomie, la science naturelle, la botanique, les mathématiques, que l'ensemble des savoirs qui glorifient l'homme.

        pontificorum ordinum omnium omnino (all the orders of the catholics)

      Sumptib. Sigismundi Feyrabendij, Frankfurt. Woodcut of the Pope on title page, woodcut printer's device on recto of last leaf of first part, second title and recto of last. 103 half-page woodcuts, floriated initials and tail pieces in second part. First edition of this important work on the costumes of the clergy and religious orders, the fruit of the creative partnership of Jost Amman and publisher Sigismund Feyrabend, illustrated with over one hundred woodcuts, among the finest examples of the use of the woodcut for illustration. There is a short text by Franciscus Modius which traces the origins of the Religious Orders, and each cut is accompanied with Latin verses which include descriptions of the colours of the various habits, and details of the orders. The costumes represent the most important figures of the Roman Catholic Church (Pope, cardinal, patriarch, bishop, deacon, legate, canon, priest) and the medieval and modern Religious Orders (among the most significant, the Theatines, Benedictines, Vallombrosians, Celestines, Templars, Camaldulians, Hieronymites, Carthusians, Cistercians, Premonstratenses, Augustinians, Dominicans, Carmelites, Capuchins etc.). The illustrations depict the main monastic Orders (eg the largest, Benedictines), mendicant Orders (eg the Dominicans founded in 1215 by St. Dominic) and regular Clerics (eg the Theatines founded in 1524 by St. Cajetan and Caraffa, afterwards Paul IV). They also include nuns (such as Dominicans, Poor Clares, Brigittines.), women who, hardly less than men, played a great part in monasticism. All are standing, apart from the first four figures (Pope, cardinal, patriarch and bishop) who are enthroned. The costumes are in considerable detail with great verve and realism. Amman, whose career flourished after his move to Nuremburg in 1561, succeeded Virgil Solis as artist for the printer Carl Sigmund Feyerabend. He was hugely prolific; one of his pupils stated that the drawings he made over four years would have filled a hay wagon, about 1,500 prints are attributed to him. He was one of the last major artists producing woodcuts for book illustration, as during his lifetime engravings were gradually taking over. Although like most artists for woodcuts he normally let a specialist 'formschneider' cut the block to his drawing, he sometimes included both a cutter's knife and a quill pen in his signature on prints, suggesting he sometimes cut his own blocks. The book is GOOD + condition. The front board although attached, feels loose. The binding is all in tact and all pages are well bound. There are thumb marks and some very mild dampstaining to only a small handful of pages. 3 or 4 of the woodcuts have been rebacked to support them. Overall : a GOOD + copy with all woodcuts in place as they should be. A very rare item. . Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 1585.

        The Venetian Ball" 16th Century Engraving by Johann Theodor de Bry

      - This wonderfully detailed engraving was produced by Johann Theodorus de Bry, likely between 1585 and 1600. It is after a much larger, rectangular 1584 engraving by Hendrik Goltzius, which is, in turn, after a drawing by Dirck Barendsz. It depicts a lavish Venetian wedding, with the guests and entertainers gathered in a courtyard in front of the busy lagoon. Though the text de Bry added references Antenor (the legendary founder of Venice), it has been put forth that the wedding in question may actually be the 1555 wedding of Titian's daughter Lavinia. Barendsz studied under Titian, and it has been suggested that the two men are pictured speaking together on the lower right. The engraving measures approximately 6 1/2" in diameter. As seems to be typical, the paper is trimmed very closely at the top and bottom, with slightly wider margins to the sides. It measures approximately 6 1/2" x 7" overall. Portions of the square platemark are present, and de Bry's imprint ("Joan Theodorus de Bry, excud.") is clear along the lower edge. Johann Theodor de Bry (1561-1623) was a German engraver and publisher. He studied primarily with his father, Dirk de Bry, and inherited the publishing business from him. There is light foxing and toning, primarily in the blank margins. There are some small, scattered stains, again primarily in the blank margins, and one larger one running along the blank left edge of the sheet. Very good overall.

        Zeeland - Gerard Mercator, 1585.

      16DE-EEUWSE KAART VAN ZEELAND?Zelandia Comitatus?, kopergravure van Zeeland uitgegeven in 1585 door Gerard Mercator met rechts onderaan een fraai titelcartouche. Uit de atlas Belgii Inferioris Geographica tabulae. In de tijd (?) met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 35 x 49 cm.Gerard Mercator heeft zelf geen opmetingen verricht in Zeeland; zijn kaart berust grotendeels op de kaart die Jacob van Deventer rond 1550 had gemaakt. In overeenstemming met die kaart ontbreken de wegen.Mercator kiest er voor om in de bovenste helft van de kaart een groot deel van het zuiden van Holland weer te geven. Dit was nodig omdat op zijn kaart van Holland de Zuid-Hollandse eilanden en het Brabantse deel van Holland ontbreekt. Deze tot het graafschap Holland behorende gebieden staan op de kaart van Zeeland. Dit blijkt niet uit de titel van de kaart zelf, maar wel uit de tekst op de keerzijde: ?Zeelandt Comitatus et Hollandiae pars Meridonalis?.Het valt op dat de kaart juist in dit gedeelte is bijgewerkt. Bij Van Deventer bestaat het westen van de Hoekse Waard nog uit een schorrengebied, Die Gorsse van Egmont. Dit gebied werd door de graaf van Egmond ingepolderd en hier werd Beijerlant (Oud Beijerland) gesticht. Piershil is nu geen apart eilandje meer. Mercator geeft deze nieuwe situatie weer.Bij van Deventer is de Biesbosch ??n watervlakte, maar bij Mercator zijn er ondiepten afgebeeld met daartussen het oorspronkelijk verloop van de Oude Maas. Mercator geeft ook en aantal verdronken dorpen aan.Referentie:? Zelandia Comitatus, Geschiedenis en Cartobibliografie van de provincie Zeeland tot 1860?, D. en J.

        Antwerpen plattegrond - Braun en Hogenberg, ca. 1585.

      "Antverpia", gravure vervaardigd door Georg Hoefnagel. Gedrukt van twee koperen platen. Formaat ca. 46 x 79 cm. Uitgegeven te Keulen door Georg Braun en Frans Hogenberg als onderdeel van de?Civitates Orbis Therrarum?? ca. 1585. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd.De Civitates Orbis Terrarum wordt beschouwd als de vroegste systematische stedenatlas. Hoewel het geen echte voorlopers had, bleek het werk direct in een behoefte te voorzien, omdat het sociale, politieke en economische leven van die periode zich afspeelde in de steden. Het werd een van de bestsellers van de late zestiende eeuw. De zes delen waaruit het werk bestond, verschenen tussen 1572 en 1618; alleen het eerste deel vermeldt echter bovenstaande titel. Georg Braun (1541-1622), kanunnik van de kathedraal van Keulen, schreef het voorwoord bij de eerste vijf delen en ook de begeleidende tekst op de versozijde van de plattegronden en stadsaanzichten. Veel materiaal voor dit stedenboek is afkomstig van de Antwerpse cartograaf Abraham Ortelius. Diens in 1570 verschenen Theatrum orbis terrarum heeft in een aantal opzichten model gestaan voor de Civitates.Simon van den Neuvel (Novellanus), Frans Hogenberg en (zijn zoon?) Abraham Hogenberg graveerden de koperplaten naar 'op bestelling' gemaakte tekeningen van onder anderen de Antwerpse schilder Joris Hoefnagel, zijn zoon Jacob Hoefnagel en Heinrich Rantzau. Niet alle platen in de Civitates zijn echter speciaal voor dit werk gemaakt. Een aantal is nagetekend van reeds bestaande plattegronden en stadsaanzichten, onder meer uit Sebastian M?nsters Cosmographia en Lodovoco Guicciardini?s Descrittione di tutti i Paesi Bassi.Prijs: ?2.850,- (incl. lijst, excl. BTW).

        Nova et succincta vera tamen historia de amplissimo potentissimoque, nostro quidem orbi hactenus incognito, sed perpaucis abhinc annis explorato Regno China.Frankfurt am Main, [Sigmund Feyerabend(?), 1589]. 8vo. With two early woodcut Chinese characters on p. 200 and p. 202. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      Cordier, Sinica, cols. 14-15; Sabin 27781, cf. 27775; VD16 G 2658; cf. Reed & Demattè 1. First Latin edition of Juan González de Mendoza's very popular work on China, "one of the most influential early books on China to be published in Europe" (Reed & Demattè). It offers a detailed description of China together with lengthy accounts of several recent missionary voyages. It was first published in Spanish in 1585, when it was the first European book in which Chinese characters appeared. "The book's first section is a survey in three sections that introduces China's history, antiquities, architecture, populace, religious beliefs and ceremonies, agriculture, military organization, and government. ... Mendoza's volume also contains descriptions of Japan and the Philippines and a chronicle of Spanish missions in the New World" (Reed & Demattè). "According to Nicholas Antonio, the ... Itinerary of the New World ... was written by F. Martin Ignacio, and was never published separately... The itinerary gives curious details concerning the Canaries, St. Domingo, Jamaica, Cuba, Porto Rico, and especially Mexico. Ortelius, in his Atlas, declared that he had received more information concerning America, from this itinerary than from any other single book" (Sabin). Slightly browned throughout, title-page somewhat soiled and partly detached, otherwise in good condition with some occasional underscoring. Binding stained and with some minor damage to the extremities, but still firm and otherwise good.

Der Konvent in Mölln befasste sich vor allem mit der Abwehr des mystischen Spiritualismus, der durch die weite Verbreitung der Schriften Valentin Weigels in Norddeutschland Anhänger gefunden hatte. Hier vertrat Hunnius das Geistliche Ministerium Lübecks, leitete den Konvent u. fasste deren Beschlüsse in der vorliegenden Schrift zusammen, die 1634 erschien. - Einband etwas fleckig, berieben u. leicht bestossen Deckel mit Bohrloch ("Kirchenbücher" wurden oft durch Ketten gesichert) Innendeckel mit Besitzervermerken durchgängig gebräunt u. tlw. leicht braunfleckig, sonst ein gutes Expl.
