[SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM]. HOLINSHED, RAPHAEL
London: John Harrison, George Bishop, Rafe Newberie, Henrie Denham, and Thomas Woodcocke, 1587. Second Edition. THE SECOND EDITION (1587) OF HOLINSHED'S "CHRONICLES": THE BOOK AND THE EDITION USED BY SHAKESPEARE AS A SOURCE FOR A DOZEN OF HIS PLAYS. "In 1548, the prominent London printer and bookseller Reyner (or Reginald) Wolfe ambitiously decided to produce a universal history and cosmography... of the world. After Wolfe's death in 1573, his assistant Raphael Holinshed took over the project, hired more writers and restrained its scope to the British Isles. The Chronicles was first published in 1577 in a two-volume folio edition, illustrated with numerous woodcuts. After Holinshed's death in 1580, Abraham Fleming published the significantly expanded revised second edition of 1587 in a larger folio format, this time without illustrations" (British Library). By scholarly consensus, it is the second (1587) edition, offered here, that Shakespeare used as the source of many of plays: "Shakespeare used Holinshed as a source for more than a third of his plays, including Macbeth, King Lear, and the English history plays such as Richard III. He used it in a range of ways, sometimes following the text of the Chronicles closely, even echoing its words and phrases; sometimes using it as an inspiration for plot details; and at other times deviating from its account altogether, either preferring other sources or his own imagination. Comparing Shakespeare's plays to Holinshed and other sources can provide rich insight into his creative intentions and processes, as well as giving us an id … [Click Below for Full Description]

Matham, Jakob (1571 ? Haarlem ? 1631)
Kupferstich, 1587, nach Hendrik Goltzius, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Wappen mit ligiertem Monogramm JS. 30,2:21,5 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung G, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Krystof, Abb. 20, S. 228, Bl. 8 der Ornatus-Folge; Bartsch 285; Hollstein 244, I (von III). ? Vor der Adresse von Visscher. Brillanter, gestochen scharfer Abdruck mit rau zeichnender Plattenkante und etwas Plattenton. Mit feinem Rändchen ringsum. ? Bis auf eine schwache Querfalte, einer minimalen Beschädigung der linken unteren Ecke und zwei winzigen Nadellöchlein von ausgezeichneter Erhaltung. Die Rötelzeichnung von H. Goltzius (1558-1617), nach der Matham das Blatt gestochen hat, befindet sich im Kupferstichkabinett in Berlin. Die Komposition gehört in eine thematisch nur lose zusammenhängende, acht Blatt umfassende Folge mit mythologischen und allegorischen Sujets. Die besondere Bedeutung von Goltzius ist u.a. auf seine Entwicklung einer besonderen Stichtechnik zurückzuführen, die die ?farbige" Wiedergabe von Gemälden ermöglichte. 1582 eröffnete der erfolgreiche Künstler in Haarlem eine große Stecherschule. Jacob Matham, sein Stiefsohn und Schüler, brachte Goltzius größten Respekt entgegen und bezeichnete ihn in einer Beischrift zu einem 1616 publizierten Stich, der das Porträt des Haarlemer Kupferstechers zeigt, als ?Ideal eines großen Geistes und Kopfes? (zitiert aus: Doris Krystof, Werben für die Kunst. Bildliche Kunsttheorie und das Rhetorische in den Kupferstichen von Hendrik Goltzius, Dissertation, Köln 1993, S. 18).

Nell'anno precedente alla stampa, Salviati era entrato al servizio di Alfonso II per scrivere una nuova storia dinastica degli Estensi, di cui la parte iniziale è riportata nelle pagine iniziali di questo libro: il lavoro sulla dinastia non sarebbe mai stato compiuto per l'aggravarsi delle condizioni di salute del S. e la sua morte nell'89.Leonardo Salviati (Florence 1539-1589) was a promoter of the Crusca Academy and between the editors of the first "Vocabolario", a book that includes, between its sources, also the present work, between "the most notorious lessons to honor the passed away cardinal" (cfr Dbi, v. Luigi D'Este).During the year before the print, Salviati was employed by Alfonso II to write a new dinasty report about Este family: the first part of this book consists of the beginning of that work, never finished because the illness and the death of Salviati two years later.

BRUNO, Giordano
[Wittenberg, Zacharias Krafft], 1587. In-16. Collation : (16), 80 [marqué 79] pp. Vélin. (Reliure du XIXe.). ____ Première édition. Rarissime comme tous les ouvrages de Giordano Bruno. Le titre peut se traduire par : "Sur la procédure et la recherche de la lanterne des logiciens". Il s'agit d'un commentaire méticuleux, et d'une critique, de la logique d'Aristote. "A Wittenberg, où Bruno séjourna pendant deux ans (1586-1588) nous le voyons exercer le rôle de professeur d'université, car les docteurs de Wittenberg, à sa grande joie reconnaissante, lui firent bon accueil et l'autorisèrent à enseigner dans leurs écoles". (Yates) Illustré par 7 gravures sur bois dans le texte. Giordano Bruno, né en 1548, était un frère Dominicain, philosophe, poète et mage. Il est célèbre pour ces théories cosmologiques qui s'appuyaient sur le modéle de Copernic, alors tout nouveau. Pour lui l'Univers était infini, et chaque étoile était un Soleil entouré des ses propres planètes, qui pouvaient être habitées. Il mena une vie mouvementée, parcourant toute l'Europe, étant souvent fort bien accueilli, jusqu'à que ces déclarations jugées hérétiques, son panthéisme affiché, le fassent prendre la fuite. Emprisonné à Rome, un procès pour hérésie lui a été intenté. Il se prolongea pendant huit années et Bruno finit sur le bûcher en 1600. Vu comme un précurseur immédiat des scientifiques du XVIIe siècle, sa mort tragique la première année du siècle est le symbole d'un tournant majeur dans l'histoire des idées. Frances A.

No colophon, as issued. Original decorative soft vellum. Decorative initials and tailpieces. This illicit early edition of Macchiavelli's "Art of War" was published in London by John Wolfe* (STC 17163 L: 54.a.17.). It is divided into a preface (proemio) and seven books (chapters), which take the form of a series of dialogues that take place in the Orti Oricellari, the gardens built in a classical style by Bernardo Rucellai in the 1490s for Florentine aristocrats and humanists to engage in discussion, between Cosimo Rucellai and "Lord Fabrizio Colonna" (many feel Colonna is a veiled disguise for Machiavelli himself, but this view has been challenged by scholars such as Mansfield), with other patrizi and captains of the recent Florentine republic: Zanobi Buondelmonti, Battista della Palla and Luigi Alamanni. After repeated uses of the first person singular to introduce the dialogue, Machiavelli retreats from the work, serving as neither narrator nor interlocutor. Fabrizio is enamored with the Roman Legions of the early to mid Roman Republic and strongly advocates adapting them to the contemporary situation of Renaissance Florence. Fabrizio dominates the discussions with his knowledge, wisdom and insights.

BONIFACIO NATALE
1587. Incisione in rame ad acquaforte e bulino, mm 353x492. Rarissima carta, molto pittorica, per cui Bonifacio viene ispirato dalla raffigurazione di Egnazio Danti nella Galleria Vaticana, anche se la prospettiva è del tutto originale così come i contenuti, come pare chiaro dalla dedica, ricavati da verifiche fisiche sul territorio. Al centro in alto il titolo e le armi del re di Napoli, Filippo II. A destra appaiono la scala grafica, la dedica ed una rosa dei venti ed in basso la firma dell'incisore "Nicolo Van Aelst Formis". Molto evidenti le città che Bonifacio riproduce nel loro effettivo dettaglio topografico. Da sempre definita come rarissima, anche dallo stesso grande studioso Almagià, fu stampata in questa unica edizione e non si conoscono tirature posteriori della lastra ad opera di altri editori.

Hendrick van CLEEVE (Anversa 1524 - 1589)
"Veduta inserita nella raccolta ""Ruinarum varii prospectus, ruriumque aliquot delineationes"". Hendrick van Cleve o Cliven III, figlio e allievo di William van Cleve, si trasferisce in Italia nella metà del XVI secolo; oltre ad un dipinto raffigurante una veduta di Roma, datato 1550, realizza un cospicuo numero di disegni che serviranno come modelli per l'opera incisa, realizzata al ritorno ad Anversa e pubblicata da Philip Galle nel 1587. Le vedute, che raffigurano principalmente Roma ma anche altre città europee, recano in basso l'iscrizione "Henri. Cliven. inven."" o ""Henri Cliven pingebat"" che ne attestano la derivazione ma non l'autografia. Incisione al bulino, bella impressione su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "A nice view taken from the rare ""Ruinarum vari prospectus ruriumq. Aliquot delinationes series"". Hendrick van Cleve or Cliven III, son and pupil of William van Cleve, moved to Italy in the second half of the XVI century; besides a painting depicting a view of Rome (1550), he realized a considerable amount of drawing which he afterwards used as preparatory for the engravings he realized in Antwerp and published by Philip Galle in 1587. The views, whose main subject is Rome but there are also other European cities, bear the inscription "Henri. Cliven. inven."" or ""Henri Cliven pingebat"" on lower part, which testify their origin, but not necessarily the fact that he realized them. Engraving, good impression on contemporary laid pape, very good conditions."

Valgrisi. In-8°; pp. (16), 215, cc. (8), 64. Con due frontespizi con marca tipografica. Legatura in piena pergamena molle coeva, tracce di usura. E' la prima edizione con le due opere insieme, e la prima della Dichiaratione. La prima opera è una guida artistica e storica della città di Venezia, concepita sotto forma di dialogo tra un Veneziano e un Forestiero; Schlosser, p. 321: "In questo periodo Venezia è già da lungo tempi la città dei forestieri per eccellenza...Il libretot veramente tascabile deve fornire tutte le cognizioni necessarie al forestiero; è redatto nella forma dialogata che ritornerà anche in seguito nella letteratrua delle guide... Un particolare valore di fonte ha la descrizione delle pitture del palazzo Ducale distrutte dal fuoco nel 1577, tanto più che Sansovino stesso ne aveva fatto una parte del programma letterario... Spiegazioni che riguardano solamente il puro contenuto ci dà un altro scrittore, pure di origine fiorentina, Girolamo Bardi, delle storie dipinte (1587) nella Sala del Gran Consiglio al Palazzo Ducale dopo l'incendio del 1577" (p. 321). La seconda opera qui unita in edizione originale descrive le pitture della Sala dello Scrutinio e del Gran Consiglio nel Palazzo Ducale, compresa un'opera del Tintoretto. Francesco Sansovino (1521-1586), nato a Roma, fu uomo di lettere, erudito e storico, la cui fama è legata anche alle descrizioni di Venezia, e alla divulgazione storica che attuò anche attraverso queste opere. Cicognara 4338; Lozzi 5895; Schlosser, 1935, pp. 330, 486. Alcune carte leggermente brunite.

Hendrick van CLEEVE
Anversa 1587 - Veduta inserita nella raccolta "Ruinarum varii prospectus, ruriumque aliquot delineationes". Hendrick van Cleve o Cliven III, figlio e allievo di William van Cleve, si trasferisce in Italia nella metà del XVI secolo; oltre ad un dipinto raffigurante una veduta di Roma, datato 1550, realizza un cospicuo numero di disegni che serviranno come modelli per l’opera incisa, realizzata al ritorno ad Anversa e pubblicata da Philip Galle nel 1587. Le vedute, che raffigurano principalmente Roma ma anche altre città europee, recano in basso l’iscrizione "Henri. Cliven. inven." o "Henri Cliven pingebat" che ne attestano la derivazione ma non l'autografia. Incisione al bulino, bella impressione su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A nice view taken from the rare "Ruinarum vari prospectus ruriumq. Aliquot delinationes series". Hendrick van Cleve or Cliven III, son and pupil of William van Cleve, moved to Italy in the second half of the XVI century; besides a painting depicting a view of Rome (1550), he realized a considerable amount of drawing which he afterwards used as preparatory for the engravings he realized in Antwerp and published by Philip Galle in 1587. The views, whose main subject is Rome but there are also other European cities, bear the inscription "Henri. Cliven. inven." or "Henri Cliven pingebat" on lower part, which testify their origin, but not necessarily the fact that he realized them. Engraving, good impression on contemporary laid pape, very good conditions. Dimensioni 242 170mm
