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.

        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.

        Ducatus Silesiae Glogani vera delineatio

      Artist: Janssonius J- Hondius H (-1644) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdamca1650 1588 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 39 x 47 - description: map of the area around Glogau - 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.

        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.

      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.

Musica Transalpina. Cantus [Altus-Tenor-Quintus-Sextus-Bassus]. The Second Booke of Madrigalles, to 5. & 6. voices: translated out of sundrie Italian Authors & newly published by Nicolas Yonge. Titles within typographical border, full-page woodcut coat-of-arms of Sir Henry Lennard on verso of titles, & woodcut initials throughout. Six vols. Small 4to, bindings as above. London: Printed by Thomas Este, 1597. First editions and very rare; the Locker-Lampson (bookplate) - E.D. Church - W.A. White (?) - John Whipple Frothingham (bookplate) copies. These two madrigal anthologies of Yonge (d. 1619), "are important because they popularized the form in England and laid the foundations for an indigenous madrigal school by providing continental models for Elizabethan composers to imitate… "Yonge is best remembered today as the editor of two anthologies of mostly Italian vocal music published, with English texts, as Musica transalpina in 1588 and 1597. The first volume, containing fifty-seven 'madrigals' - the first recorded English use of the term, and applied here not only to true madrigals, but also to chansons, canzonets, and other forms-was international in scope. It none the less betrayed a certain local bias: of its eighteen composers, the most liberally represented was Alfonso Ferrabosco the elder, who had lived in England from 1562 to 1578. Yonge also included William Byrd's English setting of Ariosto's 'La verginella', the first stanza of which had appeared in Italian some months earlier in the composer's own Psalmes, Sonets & Songs. In the dedication, addressed to Lord Gilbert Talbot, Yonge suggested that the publication grew out of the need to supply suitable material for friends to sing at daily music meetings in his home. As the repertory provided was mostly Italian, and those unfamiliar with the language either did not participate or did so 'with litle delight', he sought more music in the vernacular. Finding few suitable native compositions, he borrowed English versions of pieces translated by 'a Gentleman', and these and others like them proved so popular that he was eventually persuaded to publish a selection. A third of the pieces were drawn from madrigal anthologies issued in 1583 and 1585 by Pierre Phalèse of Antwerp. The success of Yonge's first collection led to its reprinting in 1593 or 1594. His 1597 volume, containing only twenty-four items by eleven composers, was less influential, though six of its lyrics were reset by later composers, a higher proportion than the nine reset from the first volume."-ODNB. Provenance note: Frothingham (1878-1935), who at the time of his marriage in 1921 lived just up the street at 375 West End Avenue, was the nephew of William Augustus White (1843-1927), the great collector of Elizabethan literature and William Blake. Following his uncle's death, Frothingham inherited a portion of White's library which he removed to France and where it remained until very recently. Fine, complete, and handsome set. We can trace no copies being sold at auction since the 1930s and only one copy in the trade (William Schab's Cat. 14 in 1950, $1200). This is not the set listed in Bartlett's 1914 and 1926 catalogues of White's library. ? Grove, Vol. 20, p. 574. Locker-Lampson, The Rowfant Library, II (1886), p. 134.

Red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. All edges red.= The final, richly illustrated edition of this influential work on the history, geography, and natural history of the Near and Middle East by the French naturalist and explorer Pierre Belon du Mans (born 1517 - murdered in Paris, 1564). Belon travelled through these regions between 1546 and 1550 and made numerous observations on the plants and their use, on animals (including a great deal on herpetology), people (with their various costumes) and towns. The work includes a map/view of Alexandria, and of the Sea of Marmara. The two fold-outs are missing, as usual.

      1588. Large 4to (274 x 210 mm). 6 pp. on 4 leaves (final leaf blank), sewn. Latin chancery manuscript, ink on paper. Variously revised draft for a Papal decree, asking the cardinals and others to raise monies for the Church to fight the Turks as well as other heretics: "Sixtus V, in order to better govern the Church and safely protect it from all dangers, judges that the Church needs a larger amount of money. The first year the pontificate had 100,000 gold coins, as did the second, to make 1,000,000 gold coins to be guarded in the safe of the Castel Sant'Angelo. In order that they be safely guarded, two constitutions have been issued and an enormous fleet is to be prepared, as the Tyrant of the Turks as well as heretics and schismatics are a threat to the bark of Saint Peter, and large numbers of people are eager in both France and Germany to defend against the enemy. Sixtus V orders his dear brothers, the Cardinals of the Catholic Church, to bring the Holy See another 1,000,000 golden coins, and advises them how to collect the money and the divisions to be made among them for doing so, how often to pay, etc. [...]". As comparison with the final version shows, the present text underwent further editing, and not all changes here drafted made it into the final text. - Occasional slight browning and ink-bleeding, but very well preserved altogether.

        Ducatus Silesiae Wolanus

      Artist: Janssonius Johannes (-1664) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam ; date: 1630 1588 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Margins extended ; size in cm : 39 x 48 - description: Map depicts lower Silesia with the cities of Wolow (Wohlau), Winsko (Winzig), Herrnstadt, Chobie (Koben), Lubin (Lüben), Rützen, Gora (Guhrau) and 4 very decorative 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.

        Pascaart.

      Artist: Janssonius Johannes (-1664) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdamca1650 1588 - - technic: Copper print ; colorit: original colored ; condition: Very good ; size in cm : 42 x 54 - description: Sea Chart of the northeastern Atlantic Ocean with the coast of Africa, with the Azores, Canarias, Madeira, and Cape Verde. - 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, Kšnigsberg, 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.
