"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 Guicc … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 één 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kurtzer vnd General
Augsburg o Dr (Valentin Schönig) "den 10 Septembris Anno" Format: Kl-4° [8] S Mit großer Holzschnitt-Titelarabeske Moderner Pappband in Pergamentstil minimal abgegriffen, 1585. Nicht nur Gebete, sondern Hygiene bewahrt vor der Pest*** Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses außergewöhnlich seltenen Berichts über die große Pest am Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts. Über das VD16-Besitzstandsverzeichnis sind lediglich drei Exemplare nachweisbar, in München, Wien und Budapest. Die Zuweisung an den Augsburger Drucker Valentin Schönig konnte erst neuerdings von Herrn Ulrich Kopp in Wolfenbüttel vorgenommen werden. Die anonyme Pestschrift ist von besonderem Interesse, da sie nicht - wie in der Zeit meist üblich - eine theologische Rechtfertigung der Krankheit und eine Anleitung zum Gebet um Linderung und Abklingen der Epidemie enthält. Vielmehr handelt es sich um einen Aufruf zu Sauberkeit, Hygiene und Vermeidung der Ansteckung, die der anonyme Autor der Frömmelei ganz bewusst gegenüber stellt, was einer kleinen aufklärerischen Sensation gleichkommt, die allerdings – das zeigt die Geschichte – wenig Gehör fand: „Derweil alle Krankheiten auß undanckbarkeit und ungehorsame gegen Gott dem Herren Christo herkommen, und der Tod, so darauff volget, der Sünden Sold ist: So wird in diesen schweren läuffen, dem Menschen nichts bessers und hilflichers zur erhaltung der gesundheit und des lebens sein, dann besserung und rechtschaffne Buß, sampt warem glauben, dadurch man zu Gott unserm güttigen Vatter betten, und in umb seinen schirm und täglichen segen anruffen kann, und dann also mit gutem auffmercken, … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOTMAN, François
[Genève, Eustache Vignon], 1585). ____ Première édition (?) Il existe plusieurs éditions sans lieu ni date de ce célèbre et vigoureux pamphlet contre le Pape. Cette édition est ornée d'un bandeau à lyre et angelots qui se retrouve dans les "Ad Danielis Hofmanni demonstrationes ad oculum" de Bèze, chez Vignon, même année. On peut donc la considérer genevoise. Celle-ci comporte un errata in-fine et une citation "Nahum 3", au bas de la page de titre. La seconde partie de l'ouvrage reproduit la bulle de Sixte V imprimé à Rome par les héritiers Blado en 1585 avec sa page de titre (feuillet P6). Le "Brutum fulmen" a été traduit par la suite sous le titre de "Protestation et defense pour le Roy de Navarre Henry III, premier Prince de France, et Henry Prince de Condé, aussi Prince du mesme sang, contre l'injuste et tyrannique Bulle de Sixte V. publiée à Rome, au mois de Septembre 1585, au mespris de la maison de France."

Antverpiae, Ex officina Christoph. Plantini. 1585 202pp, ornamental woodcut titlepage border. 16mo. Sl. marginal tear without loss to A2. A good copy; some passages underlined, a handwritten index on final endpaper & inner back cover, several ownership names struck through on titlepage & inner front cover. Contemporary blind stamped pigskin, covers blind tooled with multi line & ornamental borders, a centre panel stamp depicting the figures & text beneath, 'Grammattic, Dialectica, Retorica, Aritmetica', back cover shows the figures of 'Musica (2), Geometria, Astronomi', spine divided into five panels, book block with carmine red edges; darkened but in good sound condition.This edition was first published in 1566 and was based on a larger octavo edition which Poelman, 1512-1581, had prepared for Plantin the year before. It was this text, with a slightly variant imprint, and a preliminary dedication, that launched Plantin's series of 24mo classical editions for travellers. 1585 was an important year in Plantin's printing, as following the capitulation of Antwerp to the Spaniards in August he returned to the city after two years of self-imposed exile in Leiden. This 16mo edition was produced by Plantin's son-in-law Jan Moretus at the Antwerp office whilst Plantin was still away in Leiden. For a detailed analysis of this subject see David J. Shaw.

GONZALEZ de MENDOZA, Juan.
Rome: Bartholome Grassi, en la Stampa de Vicentio Accolti, 1585. Small octavo, without the blank leaf at end of preliminaries; in nineteenth-century quarter vellum and pebbled paper boards, flat spine gilt with coronets at head and tail of spine and ownership stamp of the Conde de Casa Rojas. The very rare first edition of the most important early history of China and a significant early work on commodities and colonial activities in the East Indies as well as the West Indies and South America.This was 'the most influential and detailed work on China prepared in the sixteenth century... Before the end of the century Mendoza's compendium had been translated into most European languages and had become one of the best-sellers of its day. Its popularity may be accounted for in part by the great and unsatisfied demand which existed everywhere in Europe for a comprehensive and authoritative survey of China in the vernacular languages... In fact, the authority of Mendoza's book was so great that it became the point of departure and the basis of comparison for all subsequent European works on China written before the eighteenth century... ' (Lach, I, pp. 743-4). The bibliographer Brunet claims that this was the first book printed in Europe to contain Chinese characters (two appear on p. 104).Mendoza's book was also important for its information on the East Indies and Southeast Asia. Lach identifies only three major sources for this early period: the letters of the Jesuit missionaries in the far east, narratives by commercial travellers from Europe, and 'the accounts of two Spani … [Click Below for Full Description]

Neste desenvolvido estudo sobre a enfiteuse Caldas Pereira tentou criar uma doutrina jurídica acompanhada de uma visível preocupação social que melhorasse a condição dos camponeses foreiros.

Rémy BELLEAU
Gilles Gilles. Our copy meets the first volume of the second collective edition (1585) at the second volume of the first (1578).The first volume contains five books of the poet and the Loves eschanges new gemstone, the Speech from the truth taken from Ecclesiastes, sacred Églogues taken from the Song of Songs, the two days of La Bergerie and celestial Appearances of Aral, a Greek poet (or 198 pieces, encrypted streaming, the text follows the 1578 edition). The second volume contains the Anacreon, various poems (Small inventions, Sonnets, Speech, odes, songs, lamentations, Cartel, epigrams, epitaphs), the comedy The Known and the Tomb of Remy Belleau.XX Binders full red morocco signed Huser, Jansenist back with five nerves, double nets gilded on the cuts and caps, wide gold lace framing of paper contreplats to the tank, all edges gilt. Very nice copy.Remy Belleau quickly joined the college Coqueret alongside Ronsard, Du Bellay, Baïf, then Pleïade in 1554. He published in 1556 his translation of the Odes of Anacreon, who had considerable success with its lightness and its largest accuracy. He was the first translator of the works of Sappho. His Precious stones are something new, combining the symbolism of stones and scientific knowledge. The Sheepfold, pastoral poem evoking Italian poetry, mixing poetry and narrative prose, was also crowned with great success in his time. Belleau was above all a great admirer and connoisseur of Greek poets where he drew his simple and graceful, without affectation. It remains the most famous poet of Pleïade after Ronsard and Du Bellay. He is … [Click Below for Full Description]

VIMERCATO, Giovanni Battista.
, . . 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.

Mercator, Gerard
16DE-EEUWSE KAART VAN ZEELAND'Zelandia Comitatusâ?', 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 Meridonalisâ?'.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 één 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:â?' Zelandia Comitatus, Geschiedenis en Cartobibliografie van de provincie Zeeland tot 1860â? … [Click Below for Full Description]

Da San Concordio, Bartolomeo (1262-1347)
Florence and Paris: Giorgio Marescotti, 1585. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 12mo. 36 ff., 389 (i.e. 379) pp. Each page bordered and delicately printed in italic. Later (18th-century?) Italian vellum, edges stained red, spine label lacking, wear (biopredation?) of the parchment along the head and tail of spine, in no way affecting binding structure, or the text which is immaculate. Tiny wormhole in last two leaves affecting a few letters. A fresh and crisp copy. The editio princeps of a major medieval Italian text by one of the earliest Humanists. The "Lessons to be Learned from the Ancients" is a pedagogic work based on teachings by classical Latin authors such as Virgil, Cicero, Horace, Ovid, Seneca, and Terence, and more than one hundred others, including Thomas Aquinas, Jerome, Boethius, Gregory, and Isidore. "No Italian before Petrarch extolled the importance of studying antiquity as a guide to life more clearly than did Bartolomeo da San Concordio" (Ronald G. Witt, In the Footsteps of the Ancients: The Origins of Humanism from Lovato to Bruni, p. 187). Originally written in Latin as "De documentis antiquorum" (which itself was not printed until 1601), around 1305 Bartolomeo personally translated the present work into the Florentine vernacular with great elegance and lucidity. Described as being both a treatise of philosophy and a manual of virtue, the work is divided into 40 "Distinctions" and became popular because of its moderate and balanced treatment of sins, virtues, and fortune (Christopher Kleinhenz, Medieval Italy: An Encyclopedia, pp. 99- … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
