Edges sprinkled in red.. Third edition of the famous "Hieracosophion", the second to contain the third book. - "Celebrated poem on falconry" (Schwerdt), written in Latin hexameters by Jacques-Auguste de Thou (1553-1617), a distinguished and highly erudite French nobleman. "His poem was reprinted by N. Rigault in 'Rei Accipitrariae Scriptores' in 1612 and also translated into Italian [...] De Thou succeeded his father, Christophe, as president of parliament; he was privy councillor to Henry III, and also to Henry IV of France, and keeper of his library. He was not thirty when he composed the elegant verses on hawking, which were probably inspired by the experience he gained of this noble sport during his sojourns at foreign courts" (ibid.). On p. 7, we find "an important note on the various kinds of hawks used for Falconry, with the Latin and French names for them" (Harting). - Very minor brownstaining; traces of an old bookseller's label on endpapers.

ORTELIUS, Abraham
Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1587. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 14 x 19.75". This map of the Holy Land proper shows the shoreline from Beirut to Gaza with east oriented to the top. It is the most modern of Ortelius's maps of the region, corresponding to the mid-16th century rather than the biblical imaginary, and shows the locations of prominent cities and forts. Yet, even as Ortelius endeavors toward a new level of accuracy, he does not abandon the decorative touches on his other maps. The elaborate title cartouche incorporates vignettes of the birth, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, and the map is further adorned with a bold distance scale featuring the head of Medusa. In the lower left is a dramatic vignette of Jonah plunging from a ship into the mouth of the whale. In the Dead Sea is text that describes the body of water, in Latin, as "inspiring remnants of Divine wrath." This is the second state of the map and was published in Ortelius's famous "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which is historically considered the first modern atlas (van den Broecke 173). It is in good condition with full margins. Some light staining in the margins and minor discoloration along the original fold. French 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.

Cet ouvrage, qui répond à la "Gigantomachia" de Ioannes Goropius (1518-1572), traite des hommes de taille extraordinaire, géants et colosses, connus dans l'histoire, mais décrit également ceux qui vivaient au temps de l'auteur, à la fin du seizième siècle. Des hommes de taille prodigieuse, en effet, étaient apparus en Italie (Sicile), en France (Bordeaux), en Espagne (Burgos), etc. Jean de Chassanion (1531-1598) était originaire de Monistrol en Velay. Il était protestant et a publié une histoire des Albigeois (1595). Cette édition de Spire, la seconde (Ière: Bâle, 1580) est très rare.

Raphaell Holinshed
London : Holinshed, Harrison, Jooker et al, 1587 A good copy of the Scottish part of Holinshed's Chronicles. First published in 1577, this work was revised and reissued (after censorship) in 1587.

The decorative title page is dated 1585. It lacks the final 4 leaves of the index (everything after I) and the Colophon - which gives the 1587 publication date. Contains: 2 blank leaves; decorative title page - with obscured signature and ink letters B.182 to top margin, small paper repairs to page edge; dedication 'to the Right worshipfull Maister Thomas Secford Esquire...with decorative headpiece and stunning initial capital, pp3-4; Contents list p5; authorship p6; The description of Scotland, pp7-23; title page - The Historie of Scotland dated 1585; dedication to the Right Honorable the Lord Robert Dudley, Earle of Leicester...p 27-28; The Historie of Scotland pp 29-464 - p 464 with 2 small stamps of Richard Hughes, Anglesey and letters B182; index 6pp - with further stamp and B182 to last index leaf; 2 blank pages. There is some browning and staining to some of the text leaves and the index leaves have substantial paper repair to edges.

Le nuvole nel bordo esterno sono sostituite da un decorativo cartiglio in classico stile fiammingo. La mappa è stata aggiornata; il Sud America assume ora una forma più corretta rispetto alla versione antecedente, Asia ed America sono separate e la California è correttamente dipinta come penisola. Magnifico esemplare, in bellissima coloritura coeva di questa importante mappa del Mondo di Ortelius. Ortelius' third and last world map is dated 1587 under the author's signature. The earlier border of clouds has been replaced by a more intricate and elegant lattice of strapwork and swag. The oval world map used previously has been updated in two major respects. South America now assumes the more correct shape anticipated in state 3 of Ortelius' second plate, and the Solomon Isles are marked for the first time. However, Ortelius shows the northern mainland's of Asia and America as separated by a narrow strait, 200 years prior to Captain Cook's thorough surveys of the area. California is properly shown as a peninsula. However, the map reflects the misconception held at the time that Tierra del Fuego was the northern tip of a massive southern continent. Indicative of its paramount importance, a copy of Ortelius' atlas is thought to have accompanied Sir Francis Drake on his circumnavigation of the world. Great copy in full original colour of this important map of the World. Anversa Antwerpen Shirley, 158; Van der Krogt 3, 0001; Van den Broecke, 3. 490 360

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 canonizzò la loro opera umanitaria con una Bolla Pontificia. La Confraternita diventò 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 judicare, noli … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine copy of an important French Bible, with an engraved title by Hoorbe. 1587. Paris. Jacques du Puys. Two volumes in folio (408 mm x 276 mm). 1 blank + 7 ff. + 619 + 1 blank; 1 blank +480 +1 ff. [title to New Testament] + 295 + 21 ff. + 1 blank. Sumptuous 17th century red morocco gilt, spine tooled and lettered in gilt, boards with arabesque centre device, surrounded by double gilt fillets and cornerpieces, inner dentelle gilt; rubbed and bumped, mainly hinges, some soiling and darkening. A few leaves toned and browned, some uniformly, but generally a very fresh and clean copy, with generous margins. A fine edition, finely bound in impressive morocco gilt, of a French translation of the Bible; generously illustrated with half and full page views, historic scenes and maps of the Holy Land and Biblical antiquities, buildings, monuments and places. As most of the woodcuts occur in the Old Testament, the motifs are mostly Jewish. The engraved title to the first volume does not appear to be present in all copies; in fact, a similar copy has been described as a presentation copy recently. The engraving shows the Crucified Christ flanked by the Royal family of France (Henry III, his wife and the Queen Mother, Catherine de Medicis). The illustration is composed of 32 woodcuts, half and full page. Not in Adams. Chambers (ref.), French Bibles, 513. Not in Brunet.

Ortelius began his career in cartography as a map colorist, and worked as a map and book dealer. Ortelius evolved into a keen and discerning expert on contemporary geographical knowledge and its expression in cartography, even traveling through Italy and France with Gerard Mercator (1512-1594), his friend and rival. In the 1560’s Ortelius conceived of the project that would win him international acclaim, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, widely considered the first modern atlas. Ortelius collected the best contemporary maps available, and had each re-engraved by the talented Flemish artist Frans Hogenberg (1535-90) into a standard format and graphic style, appended scholarly text to their versos, and published them as a uniform edition. He maintained the highest quality of paper, engraving and coloring, resulting in some of the most beautiful maps ever produced. The Theatrum proved to be a landmark advancement over previous collections of maps. Suddenly, curious Europeans truly seemed to have the world at their fingertips. From the time of its first printing until well after Ortelius’ death, international demand for the Theatrum continued unabated.
