[Tradel, Georg].
Augsburg, Valentin Schönig, 1587. 4°. Mit Holzschn.-Titelvignette. 104 nn. Bll., Mod. Ppbd. Erstausgabe dieser offiziellen Gegendarstellung des Augsburger Rates zur im Vorjahr erschienenen Schrift „Augspurgische Händel“ des ehemaligen Augsburger Pastors und Superintendenten Georg Mylius (eigtl. Müller, 1548-1607). Die Stadt wehrt sich gegen die darin erhobenen Vorwürfe und rechtfertigt die Ausweisung des protestantischen Theologen. - Mylius hatte sich, als Papst Gregor XIII. 1582 den gregorianischen Kalender verordnete und Augsburg aus Kaisertreue die Reform übernahm, an die Spitze der örtlichen protestantischen Widerstandsbewegung gestellt, die den neuen Kalender zumindest für das Kirchenjahr boykottierte. „Darüber erbost, ließ der [Augsburger] Senat [Mylius] durch Bewaffnete aus der Stadt bringen, aber die Bürger befreiten ihn und führten ihn im Triumph zurück. Doch wurde er gezwungen, am 28. Mai 1584 die Stadt zu verlassen. Mylius wandte sich nach Ulm, wo er freundliche Aufnahme fand [...]. Im Juni 1585 [folgte er] einem Rufe als Prediger und Professor in Wittenberg“ (ADB XXIII, 143). Verfasser ist lt. Holzmann/B. der Augsburger Jurist Georg Tradel (1530-98). - Bl. A ij mit kl.

Raphaà«l Du Petit Val 1587 In 8vo, legatura di inizio Ottocento in pelle verde con dorso ornato in oro e tagli rossi (lievi spellature), pp. (16), 265, (6, di cui le ultime 2 bianche). Armi della città  di Rouen sul titolo, armi di Carlo di Borbone al verso del frontespizio. Minime fioriture, ma ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE della prima opera sulla storia, le antichità  e i monumenti della città  normanna di Rouen, che ai quei tempi era la seconda città  della Francia dopo Parigi e la più grande diocesi del regno con 1338 parrocchiani. Nella dedica al cardinale Charles de Bourbon, allora vescovo di Rouen, l'autore avverte di aver organizzato l'opera sul modello di quella di Gilles Corrozet sulle antichità  di Parigi. Dopo alcuni componimenti preliminari in lode dell'autore e della città , il volume si apre con la narrazione della fondazione della città  (avvenuta nell'anno 80 dell'era cristiana) e dei suoi primi anni di storia. Quindi continua con capitoli dedicati alle piazze, alle fontane, ai ponti, alle porte, alle macellerie e pescherie, alle chiese (con i loro arredi, organi e reliquie), ai monasteri, alle cappelle e alle confraternite della città . Elenca persino le strade dei vari quartieri, specificando per ciascuna le case e i palazzi principali. Fornisce quindi brevi notizie biografiche sui vescovi e sui duchi di Normandia e descrive le cerimonie compiute durante la tradizionale festa della Concezione della Vergine (sono riportate anche alcune poesie recitate nella circostanza, ossia un chant royal, una ballade e un rondeau, di H.

PICCIOLUS, Antonius, the elder (d. 1632) aka Antonio Piccioli
Bergomi [i.e. Bergamo]: Expensis Joannis Batistae Ciotti Senensis 1587. Small 8vo, †4, A-N8, O4, lacking O2-4, O2-3 (Index) supplied in facsimile, O4 blank, folding plate with mended tear with slight loss, uniformly browned throughout on account of the paper quality, bound in 18c. Italian paper boards, spine worn but sound.During the Middle Ages the art of palmistry was actively suppressed by the Catholic Church as pagan superstition. In Renaissance magic, palmistry (known as "chiromancy") was classified as one of the seven "forbidden arts." Therefore in Catholic Italy the present work would have been a surreptitious publication, frowned upon, possibly even banned, by the Church, which is probably the reason for its poor quality paper. It is uncommon in the market.

BARDI, Girolamo
Felice Valgrisio, Venice, 1587. FIRST EDITION 8vo. ff. [viii] 64. Italic letter, some Roman. Woodcut printer's device of hands grasping a caduceus to t-p, woodcut initials. Very light foxing to first few leaves. A very good, clean copy in C17 Italian vellum, ms title to spine, edges speckled red. First edition of Girolamo Bardi's important guide to the paintings in the Palazzo Ducale in Venice; the work is very rare, only one copy (Cambridge UL) is recorded in Adams. Little is known of Bardi's life, save that he came from a prominent Florentine family, which produced a number of authors and scholars. The present work is dedicated to Giovanni I Cornaro (1551-1629; Doge from 1625). In 1577, a huge fire damaged the Sala dello Scrutinio and the Great Council Chamber in the Palazzo Ducale, causing serious structural damage and destroying numerous important paintings. Architectural reconstruction work was completed by 1579-1580, and a committee was formed to commission new works of art and devise the iconographic programme which they should follow. Bardi was a member of this committee; the present work reveals not only his 'insider knowledge' of the practical implementation of the restoration project, but also his deep appreciation of art and the care with which the new decorative schema was devised. Many of the paintings from this mass commissioning were inevitably workmanlike, never wholly adequate replacements for the lost works by artists such as Gentile da Fabriano, Pisanello, Alvise Vivarini, Carpaccio, Bellini, Pordenone and Titian. But there were also inspired and innovat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Madrid: En casa de Pedro Madrigal, 1587. Two parts bound in one volume. [12],116; 244,[12] leaves, including one full-page plate. Small octavo. Contemporary calf, rebacked with original gilt backstrip laid down, gilt red morocco label. Binding edgeworn and rubbed, foredge of front board gnawed. Trimmed close, affecting the first word of the title and the running headline in the preliminary material. Ex- lib., with a small ink stamp on the verso of the titlepage and on the colophon page. Faint old stain in upper margin of second part, else quite clean internally. About very good. In a half morocco and cloth box. An early edition of Gonzalez de Mendoza, following the first of 1585, and the second and best edition to contain the Espejo narrative of early exploration in the American Southwest. Antonio de Espejo began his exploration of New Mexico in 1583, in the company of Fray Beltran and fourteen soldiers. The ostensible reason for his expedition was to find Fr. Agustin Rodriguez, who had disappeared in that region the previous year, but much more was accomplished than merely establishing the sad fate of the martyred Franciscan. A true wealth of new information about the traversed territory was garnered, and this is the first publication to include notice of that expedition (found in this edition beginning on leaf 165 of the second part). Most editions of this work do not contain the information about Espejo's New Mexican adventure, and Wagner says that the present edition is only the second with the Espejo narrative, following a Madrid edition of 1586, printed by Querino Ger … [Click Below for Full Description]

Camden, William
London, 1587. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title. Minor toning and soiling, but generally clean internally. Contemporary notations throughout text. Very good. Second edition of the first major topography of Britain. Camden was urged and encouraged to undertake this massive survey by Ortelius. Ten years in the making, the work forced the author to "get some knowledge of the Welsh and Anglo-Saxon languages, to read and read again both native and other historians, many of whose works still remained in manuscript, and to ransack and select from the public records" - DNB. The work was an immediate success, passing through three edition in the first four years. "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his BRITANNIA is the first book which shows the need to evaluate sources. It was the revolutionary subject matter, and its even more evolutionary treatment of the subject, which made it at once the vehicle and the model for research in all three subjects for the next two hundred and fifty years" - PMM.

"This very popular, varied, and lengthy tome of latin translations, ‘Writers of the Cabalistic Arts’, was surely, if there was one, the Norton Reader of Cabala of the Renaissance.

ORTELIUS, Abraham
Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1587. unbound. View. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 14.5" x 19.25". This impressive view of the Daphne (modern day Harbiye), a suburb of the ancient Greek and Roman city of Antioch (Antakya), located on the Orontes River in modern day Turkey, dates to circa 1601. Centered on the temple of Daphne which a dedicated to the Pythian Apollo, the view depicts the "paradise of Daphne", a park of wood and waters, an illustrates a perfect mix of history and myth. The view includes the temple complex surrounded by woods and fields and hills in the distance. The Orontes River can be seen in the left and top of the view. This view is from Ortelius's "Parergon Theatri", a series of historical maps based on ancient geography, published from 1579 onwards, which sometimes appeared as a separate publication and at times were included in the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". It is in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Stains in the margin, not affecting the image. Minor wormhole over title. Latin text on verso. Abraham Ortelius (1527--1598), a Flemish cartographer and geographer, is widely regarded as one of the important and influential cartographers in history. He is known for his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which was the first modern atlas. This is an uncommon uncolored example of this wonderful view by Ortelius.

s.e., Romae, 1587. In 16, pp. (8b) + 39 + (9b). Fr. nero e rosso. Bella vignetta inc. all'acq. al fr. raff. San Giovanni Decollato. Testo stampato in nero e rosso. Capilettera figg. Tarletto alle prime 5 cc. Antica cart. rustica. Rarissima raccolta di salmi, litanie e preghiere in lingua latina utilizzati dai membri della confraternita romana della Misericordia per accompagnare i condannati a morte nel momento estremo. Questa confraternita nacque a Firenze alla fine del 1400 con il nome di 'Confraternita di San Giovanni Decollato dei Fiorentini' con lo scopo di confortare i condannati a morte durante gli ultimi istanti di vita, e, una volta giustiziati, di dar loro dignitosa sepoltura. Nel 1490, Papa Innocenzo VIII canonizzo' la loro opera umanitaria con una Bolla Pontificia. La Confraternita divento' quindi 'Privilegia Venerabilis Arciconfraternitas Sancti Joannis Decollati', detta della 'Misericordia della Nazione Fiorentina in Roma'. Il Papa concesse alla confraternita come sede l'antichissima chiesa di S. Maria de Fovea. Alla vigilia di un'esecuzione, i Confratelli uscivano da una porticina della casa dell'Arciconfraternita nei loro sai e mantelli neri, dirigendosi verso le carceri di Tor di Nona o di Corte Savella, al lume di candela, e accompagnati dal suono di una campanella, per annunciare al popolo l'esecuzione dell'indomani. Dopo la lunga veglia notturna, scortavano il condannato, confortandolo fino alla fine. Quindi lo seppellivano nel chiostro della Confraternita, attraverso sette botole i cui coperchi di marmo portano ancora la scritta 'Domine, cum veneris judi … [Click Below for Full Description]
