In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

        Testamentum Novum, sive novum foedus Iesu Christi, D.N. Cuius Graeco contextui respondent interpretationes duae: vna, vetus altera, Theodori Bezae, nunc quartò diligenter ab eo recognita...

      [Genevae]: [Henricus Stephanus], 1588. Folio (33 cm; 13"). [6] ff., 555, [1 (blank)] pp., [8] ff. (lacks final blank leaf); lacks vol. II (Epistles, Revelation). An interleaved and heavily annotated copy of the Gospels and Acts of "Beza's third major edition [of the Greek New Testament]. The text follows that of the second major edition (1582) with only five exceptions" (Darlow and Moule). => One should note that the title-page proclaims this "quarta editio," and that this is Estienne's third folio printing of Beza's N.T.    Beza's New Testament Greek text is here accompanied by his Latin and the Vulgate (i.e., Catholic Latin) translations, the trio appearing in parallel columns on each page with => extensive notes that often fill as much as one-third to one-half of a page and with parallel references additionally set in the margins. The volume's title-page is printed in red and black and bears Henri Estienne's printer's device; a different finely wrought woodcut headpiece opens each book, with each column on those pages bearing a woodcut initial at its head, and a few of the books of the N.T. end with woodcut tailpieces.    Evidence of readership: An interleaved copy with => the vast majority of the leaves bearing an early 19th-century reader's notes and annotations. The notes cite references published as late as 1809 and it is clear that the natively German-speaking scholar was comfortable in Greek, Hebrew, Latin, and English.    Provenance: Ownership signature on title-page of Leon St. Vincent. Later in The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released; no markings).    The paper stock used for the interleaving has the classic ProPatria watermark and that and its countermark match Churchill's 151, which has a starting date of 1799.         Darlow & Moule 4650; Adams B1711. On the interleaves' watermarks, see: Churchill, Watermarks in paper in Holland, England, France, etc., in the XVII and XVIII centuries. 19th-century half vellum with German pastepaper over boards, spine with tinted and tooled label, text recased and new endpapers; vol. I (only) of this production, without the Epistles and Revelation. Title-page creased and dust-soiled, all leaves before pp. 9/10 rodent-gnawed in lower outside corner with loss of paper but not of text or manuscript annotation, and a bit of light waterstaining to rearmost leaves only. => An important edition and a singular copy.

        Lagenia Anglis Leinster - [The County of Leinster].

      Original, hand-coloured engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 50.5 cm x 40 cm Mounted: c. 70 cm x 60 cm Original Map with beautifully coloured cartouche and border-colours. Johannes Janssonius (1588, Arnhem buried July 11, 1664, Amsterdam) (born Jan Janszoon, in English often incorrect Jan Jansson) was a Dutch cartographer and publisher who lived and worked in Amsterdam in the 17th century. Janssonius was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder, a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. Elisabeth Hondius died in 1627 and he remarried one Elisabeth Carlier in 1629. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius. Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German. After Janssonius's death, the publishing company was continued by his son-in law, Johannes van Waesbergen. The London bookseller Moses Pitt attempted publication of the Atlas Major in English, but ran out of resources after the fourth volume in 1683. (Wikipedia)

        Manuscript document: indenture concerning the town of Howden

      1588 - PEARSON, Robert. Manuscript Indenture Regarding the Tithing of Howden. Entered into by Robert Pearson, Lewis Mordaunt, Marmaduke Grymston, and others. [Howden]: October 5, 1588. Large folio parchment sheet (25 by 26 inches), with original pendant wax seal. $1500.Original legal document in fine Elizabethan secretarial hand, tithing the corn crops of the farming town of Howden to establish a prebend, presumably for the local cleric. With original wax pendant seal.Modern-day Howden, in East Yorkshire, is still very much rural farmland: it tracks its borders "from Elm Tree Manor across the road heading between the two-works complex at Howdendyke to meet with the Trans Pennine Trail on the banks of the River Ouse, and so on over flat farmland to join the east bank of the River Derwent at Loftsome Bridge." This 1588 agreement between three town leaders establishes a stipend ("prebend") for an unnamed party, presumably the office of the local church (since the term "prebend" at the time almost always referred to the stipend given a clergyman). Funds were to be obtained from a tithe on sheaves of corn. Original seal bears the monogram WB.Folded parchment with usual soiling to exposed surfaces, wax chipped (not affecting clearly-impressed seal). A fine specimen of the Elizabethan legal hand.

        Europam sive celticam veterem

      Artist: Janssonius Johannes (-1664) Amsterdam; issued in: ca1700 1588 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 35 x 46,5 - description: Map shows total Europe with two beautiful cartouches - Vita of the artist: Johannes Janssonius (Jansson),( 1588- 1664) Amsterdam was born in Arnhem, the son of Jan Janszoon the Elder,a publisher and bookseller. In 1612 he married Elisabeth de Hondt, the daughter of Jodocus Hondius. He produced his first maps in 1616 of France and Italy. In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with English County Maps, a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name Atlas Major, there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of most of the cities of the world (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German.

Mercuriale's Censura operum Hippocratis. had previously been published by Junta in 1583. Girolamo Mercuriale spent his life between Popes, Cardinals, emperors and grand dukes, who often sought him out as a personal physician, he taught at the most renowned Italian Universities of Padua and Bologna. Whilst leading the field in medical research Mercuriale also was aware of the importance of the ancient physicians and spent much of his life in researching ,translating and interpreting their works All his great philological activities culminated in 1588 in the publication of what is considered, if not the first, at least one of the first critical editions of the works of the great physician Hippocrates. Rebound in modern half reversed calf over marbled boards, new endpapers; wear to joints. Decorative frontispiece damaged, censored [ Owners inscription excised?]with paper lacking and with old repair backed with plain paper; lacking lower vignette of Galen, Hippocrates, Avicenna & Aetius around the printer's device. Damp staining to upper margin of frontispiece and throughout index, entering text, also to lower right corner, until p85 of Volume I. Another damp stain to upper right corner worsening and then weakening from divisional title of Secunda classi in VolI through to page 46 of Quarta classi in Vol II; heaviest p73-319 of VolII just touching text. The decorative frontispiece by Jacobus Francus shows a Hippocratic physician's tasks In the frontispiece underneath the title, Hippocrates is shown against a background of the island of Cos, his birthplace. The text in the right-hand corner reads: 'Hippocrates averts the imminent plague'. The scene thus refers to the legend that Hippocrates saved Athens from the plague (430 BC) by building a large fire. Below this scene is missing the vignette of the four medical authorities: Galen (second century AD), Hippocrates, Avicenna (980-1037), and Aetius of Amida (fl. 530). Above the title page, Hippocrates seems to be giving a tablet 'dietetica' to a woman against a background of hunting and cooking. The square to the left shows other authors who wrote on dietetics, namely Diocles of Carystus (fourth century BC), Crateuas (fl. 90 BC), and Oribasius (fourth century AD). The square to the right indicate Hippocrates' other interests in exercise and taking in good air. The rest of the left-hand column relate to surgery, as it is headed with a banner, 'chirurgia'. Below it is a scene of two people engaged in some form of trepanning – Podalirius and Machaon were sons of Asclepius, described in Homer's Iliad as treating those wounded in battle. In the next scene, Galen is shown dissecting a body, with two of his contemporaries (whom he mentions in his work), Alexander Damascenus and Eudemus looking on. The next image below shows venesection and cupping, both forms of extracting humours. 'Nicolas Florentinus' refers to Nicolas Falcucci (d. 1411 or 1412), who had written a surgical tract as well as a commentary of Hippocrates's Aphorisms. The last scene shows the ancient anatomist Herophilus (fourth to third century BC) inspecting an instrument in front a table full of other instruments and jars (presumably for ointments and pastes) on shelves. At the bottom is written, 'tuto, cito iucunde (safely, swiftly and pleasantly)' a phrase similar to the one used in Vesalius's portrait. The right-hand column is headed by 'Phamaceutrica', with the authorities Aetius, Mesue (777-857), and Avicenna below, all of whom had written on medicinal drugs. Underneath them two further authors of medicinal drugs, Galen and Rhazes (865-925) are active, while Hippocrates loks on. On Rhazes' table is a prescription with the abbreviated names of 'diacatholicon' and rhubarb, both laxatives, but the true identity of the rhubarb was hotly debated in the period. Below this, Theophrastus (c. 371-c. 287 BC) and Dioscorides (40-90 AD), authors on medicinal material and plants, are depicted conversing in a formal garden. By this time, a garden for the study of medicinal plants had been well established at both the Universities of Padua and Bologna. Underneath is shown a device for distillation – a furnace with a large number of alembics. In the last scene, Andromachus the Elder, physician to Nero, and Mithridates V, King of Pontus (132-63 BC) are depicted in front of pharmacy jars and rows of various ingredients. Mithridates was believed to have taken small amounts of poison in order to protect himself against poisoning, and he mixed all known antidotes into one compound, called 'Mithridation', which became synonymous with a universal cure. Andromachus was reputed to have created a universal antidote that replaced the 'Mithridation'. 'Theriac' on the jar at the feet of Andromachus refers to the universal cure developed by Galen. In the sixteenth century, there was much debate among learned physicians about the ingredients of this theriac. [exhibitions.lib.cam.ac.uk] The wood engravings above the table of contents iof each Classis by Jacobus Francus. Hippocrates of Kos c. 460 – c. 370 BC), also known as Hippocrates II, was a Greek physician of the Age of Pericles (and is considered one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He is referred to as the "Father of Modern Medicine" in recognition of his lasting contributions to the field as the founder of the Hippocratic School of Medicine. This intellectual school revolutionized medicine in ancient Greece, establishing it as a discipline distinct from other fields with which it had traditionally been associated (theurgy and philosophy), thus establishing medicine as a profession. Girolamo Mercuriale /Heiron Mercurali (1530-1606), Born in the city of Forlì, the son of Giovanni Mercuriali, also a doctor, was educated at Bologna and Padua and Venice, where he received his doctorate in 1555. He was sent on a political mission to Rome. to treat pope of the time Paul IV. In Rome, he made favorable contacts and had free access to the great libraries, where with sweeping enthusiasm, he studied the classical and medical literature of the Greeks and Romans. His studies of the attitudes of the ancients toward diet, exercise and hygiene and the use of natural methods for the cure of disease culminated in the publication of his De Arte Gymnastica (Venice, 1569). With its explanations concerning the principles of physical therapy, it is considered the first book on sports medicine. The illustrations which accompanied the second edition of the work (1573) proved incredibly fertile to the Western imagination regarding the nature of athletics in the Classical world. Modern scholarship has recognized that these illustrations were largely speculative creations of Mercuriale and his collaborators. De Arte Gymnastica gave Mercuriale fame. He was called to occupy the chair of practical medicine in Padua in 1569. During this time, he translated the works of Hippocrates, and, armed with this knowledge, wrote De morbis cutaneis (1572), considered the first scientific tract on skin diseases; De morbis muliebribus ("On the diseases of women") (1582); ("On the diseases of children") (1583); De oculorum et aurium affectibus; and "Censura e dispositio operum Hippocratis" (Venice, 1583). In De morbis puerorum, Mercuriali observed contemporary trends in child-rearing. In 1573, he was called to Vienna to treat the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II. The emperor, pleased with the treatment he received (although he was to die three years later), made him an imperial count palatine. Mercuriale was a prolific writer, though many books were ascribed to him that were compiled from the works of others. He remained in Padua until 1587, when he began teaching at the University of Bologna. In 1593, he was called by Ferdinando de' Medici, the Grand Duke of Tuscany, to Pisa. Cosimo wanted to increase the prestige of the university there and offered a record salary of 1,800 gold crowns, to become 2,000 gold crowns after the second year.

        Mathematicae Collectiones Ed by Federico Commandino

      Numerous woodcut illus. & diagrams in the text. 4 p.l. (the last a blank), 334 (i.e., 332) pp. Folio, cont. limp vellum (title a bit soiled, last two leaves with some light dampstaining), ties gone. Pesaro: H. Concordia, 1588. First edition and a very fine and fresh copy of this uncommon book; this edition, providing the complete extant text, was the final work to be edited by Commandino and completes his life's work of reviving Renaissance mathematics by making available the best mathematical writings of antiquity. "In the silver age of Greek mathematics Pappus stands out as an accomplished and versatile geometer. His treatise known as the Synagoge or Collection is a chief, and sometimes the only, source for our knowledge of his predecessors' achievements. The Collection is in eight books, perhaps originally in twelve, of which the first and part of the second are missing... "Book VII is the most fascinating in the whole Collection, not merely by its intrinsic interest and by what it preserves of earlier writers but by its influence on modern mathematics."­D.S.B., X, p. 293-95­(and see pp. 294-98 for a full discussion of the contents). This concerns, in a passage on Apollonius' Conics, the attempt to conceive of the product of more than three straight lines as geometrical entities, known as "Pappus' Problem." Descartes devoted a major part of his own Géométrie to this, and solved it by the use of algebraic notation. "Pappus' problem thus inspired the new method of analytical geometry that has proved such a powerful tool in subsequent centuries. In his Principia (1687) Newton also found inspiration in Pappus; he proved in a purely geometrical manner that the locus with respect to four lines is a conic section, which may degenerate into a circle."­D.S.B., X, p. 296. Topics discussed in the other books include astronomy and mechanics. A very fine copy preserved in a green morocco-backed box. Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 214­"Within 25 years of Commandino's death the first step in founding the mechanics of the seventeenth century was to be taken by Galileo when, in criticising the inclined plane theorem of Pappus, the Tuscan mathematician adumbrated the notion of inertia. This step was not taken in an intellectual vacuum, but represents the culmination of the mathematical renaissance that had been achieved by the Restauratores."­(& see the whole of Chap. 9 for Commandino and this book). Smith, History of Mathematics, I, pp. 136-37.

        wherein is breefely set foorth the art of Limming, which teacheth the order in drawing and tracing of leters, Vinets, Flowers, Armes, and Imagerye, and the maner how to make sundry syses or groundes to lay Silver or Gold upon, and how silver or Golde shall be layed or limmed upon the syse, and the waye to temper Gold and Silver and other mettals and diverse kindes of colours to write or to limme withall uppon Velym, Parchment or Paper, and how to lay them uppon the worke which thou intendest to make, and how to vernish it when thou hast done, with divers other thinges verye meete and necessary to be knowne to all such Gentlemen, and other persons as doe delight in Limming, painting or in tricking of Armes in their colours, and therefore a woorke very meete to be adjoyning to the bookes of Armes

      Typographical device on title. Printed throughout in black letter. 11, [1] leaves. Small 4to, fine modern blue morocco, dentelles gilt, a.e.g. London: T. Purfoote, the assigne of R. Tottill, 1588. Fourth edition of one of the earliest English books of "secrets," or manual of practical arts; this text appears to be entirely of English origins. It was first published in 1573 and reprinted in 1581 and 1583; there were also editions of 1596 and 1605. All editions are very scarce; of this printing the NSTC (24255) records five copies: L18, O; F, PN, NY Metropolitan Museum. This is a very early English manual of instructions for painting and illuminating ("limming," or "limning"), particularly books and manuscripts. The following recipes are characteristic: "to temper golde or silver wherewith you may write with a pen or paint with a pencil"; "to temper Brasill wherewith to write, florish, or rule bookes"; "to make a kind of colouring called vernix, wherewith you may vernish gold, silver, and other colour or paintings, be it upon velim, paper, timber, stone, leade, copper, glasse, &c." The last leaf contains on the recto "the names of all such colours and other thinges as are mentioned and contayned in this present booke of limming, and are for the moste parte to bee solde at the apothecaries," and on the verso is an index to the various recipes. A fine copy. Books of this sort are perishable by nature and copies seldom appear on the market; many of those which do survive in institutional libraries are in less than perfect condition.
