      Artist: Janssonius J- Hondius H (-1644) Amsterdam; Issued in: Amsterdam; date: c 1664 1588 - Artist: Janssonius, J.- Hondius, H. (1588-1644) Amsterdam; Issued in: Amsterdam; date: c. 1664; - Condition: Perfect condition; Map depicts the river Donau on two maps. The source of the river Brigach and Breg in Germany. The the river flow in Austria, Slowakia, Hungary, Serbia to Belgrad.Johannes Janssonius ( 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.

        Marci Hieronymi Vidae Cremonen. Albae Episcopi, Opera, quorum catalogum sequens pagella continet

      apud Franciscum Osannam Impress. Ducalem, 1588. In - 24° (13,6x7,7 cm), pp. 480, legatura coeva in pelle con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso a 5 scomparti. Al dorso, al primo scomparto in alto, mancanza di centrimetri 2,8x3 e, nel bordo inferiore dell'ultimo scomparto in basso, mancanza dalla forma irregolare: queste lacune sono state reintegrate da intervento di restauro eseguito con pelle di colore un po' più scuro e di tipologia differente rispetto alla pelle della legatura; le parti integrate si presentano lisce, senza decorazioni. Piccola mancanza reintegrata anche nell'angolo inferiore sinistro del piatto posteriore. Al frontespizio, nell'angolo superiore destro, piccola lacuna reintegrata con carta giapponese (vedi foto). Tra le pagine 349 - 356, qualche errore di numerazione, ma testo completo e scorrevole. Alle pagine 305 e 395 due piccole abrasioni nel testo ben restaurate, con reintegro di alcune lettere a matita: a pagina 305, reintegrate, al rigo 15, " - bet inge - " di "iubet ingenti", al rigo 16 " - um a - " di "virum ac" e al rigo 17 " - edit - " di "aggreditur"; a pagina 395, al rigo 1 " - aq(ue)" di "sitientia q(ue)", al rigo 2 "vident - " di "videntq(ue)" e al rigo 3 " - o" di "vulgo". Leggere arrossature ad alcune pagine, dovute al tipo di carta. Per il resto, ben conservato. Contiene: Poemata omnia, tam quae ad Christi veritatem pertinent, quam ea quae haud plane disiunxit a fabula, utraque seorsum ab alteris. Primo loco continentur: Hymni de rebus divinis, nunc primum editi; Christiados libri. Secundo autem volumine: De arte poetica libri; De Bombyce libri; Scacchia liber; Bucolica, Eclogae. Carmina diversi generis, pleraque non antehac edita. Tra i vari scritti, di notevole interesse i poemetti didascalici sul baco da seta e sugli scacchi. Marco Gerolamo Vida, letterato ed ecclesiastico italiano, nacque a Cremona nel 1485. Dopo i primi anni di formazione trascorsi alla scuola dell'umanista cremonese Nicolò Lucari, fu mandato a proseguire gli studi a Mantova, dove frequentò le lezioni di Francesco Vigilio. Durante il soggiorno mantovano entrò nell'ordine dei Canonici regolari della Congregazione di San Marco. Rientrato a Cremona nel 1505, si dedicò agli studi di teologia e filosofia e alla poesia in lingua latina. Risalgono a questo periodo, fra l'altro, le redazioni di due poemetti didascalici, uno sul gioco degli scacchi, Scacchia ludus, iniziato probabilmente nel 1507 e terminato nel 1513, che ebbe un notevole successo, con decine di edizioni e traduzioni in varie lingue, e uno sul baco da seta, De bombyce. Verso il 1510 si recò a Roma: qui strinse rapporti con numerosi intellettuali e artisti e si fece apprezzare come poeta. Nel 1533 ricevette la nomina a vescovo di Alba, ove però si recò solo nel 1535, momento dal quale si dedicò interamente alla propria missione pastorale. Nel 1545 partecipò al Concilio di Trento. Morì ad Alba nel 1566. Oltre ai componimenti sopra ricordati, tra le sue opere meritano menzione: la Christias, in sei libri, sorta di Eneide cristiana in esametri sulla storia della Redenzione, in stile virgiliano; i Poeticorum libri tres, una poetica che celebra il culto della latinità di fronte all'ellenismo ormai trionfante; il trattato in due libri De reipublicae dignitate, in una prosa modellata su Cicerone; le Constitutiones Synodales, documento del primo concretarsi dei propositi e degli ideali della Controriforma.

        Africa Tabula XII

      1588. Rarissima carta geografica dell'Africa. La mappa è tratta dalla 'Geografia di M. Livio Sanuto : distinta in XII libri : ne quali, oltra l'esplicatione di molti luoghi di Tolomeo, e della Bussola, e dell'Aguglia, si dichiarano le Prouincie, Popoli, Regni... dell'Africa. Con XII tauole di esse Africa in dissegno di rame / aggiuntiui de piu tre Indici da M. Giouan Carlo Saraceni... ; [aiutato a ciò da Giulio suo fratello, che di propia mano tagliò tutti li Rami'. Si tratta del primo atlante dedicato esclusivamnete all'Africa, con le tavole disegnate da Livio Sanuto e finemente tradotte in rame dal fratello Giulio. L'opera venne pubblicata postuma a Venezia nel 1588, da Damiano Zenaro ed a cura di Carlo Saraceni. Incisione in rame, restauri perfettamente eseguiit alla piega centrale e a dei fori di tarlo presenti nella parte bianca superiore ed inferiore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rara ed affascinante mappa dell'Africa. "A very rare map of Africa. The map is taken form 'Geografia di M. Livio Sanuto : distinta in XII libri : ne quali, oltra l'esplicatione di molti luoghi di Tolomeo, e della Bussola, e dell'Aguglia, si dichiarano le Prouincie, Popoli, Regni... dell'Africa. Con XII tauole di esse Africa in dissegno di rame / aggiuntiui de piu tre Indici da M. Giouan Carlo Saraceni... ; [aiutato a ciò da Giulio suo fratello, che di propia mano tagliò tutti li Rami'. First printed atlas of Africa, published postumously by Sanuto's friend Saraceni who added the tables of contents and the preface on the life of the author. The maps were drawn by Sanuto and finely engraved by his brother Jules. The atlas is divided into twelve books, the first containing notes on scientific observation, the declination of the magnetic needle and corrections to the work, the second explains the divisions of Sanuto's prospective description of the world, and the other ten on Africa which was the only section he completed before his death. Livio Sanuto (c.1520 - 1576), was a Venetian cosmographer, mathematician and maker of terrestrial globes. Sanuto was one of the so - called Lafreri school of engravers, whose output signalled the transition between the maps of Ptolemy and the maps of Mercator and Ortelius. Livio and his brother Giulio, planned a massive and comprehensive atlas to include maps and descriptions of the whole world, which he believed would be more accurate than any previously published. Unfortunately, he died in 1576 having only completed 12 maps of Africa. The 12 maps were eventually published in 1588 by Livio's brother Giulio, under the title ""Geografia Di M. Livio Sanuto..."" . In the compliation of this and the other African maps, Sanuto relied on Gastaldi's 1564 map and Portuguese sea charts for the mapping of the coasts and for information about the interior, used accounts by Duarte Barbosa and João de Barros. After its publication in 1588, this work was copied by other leading map makers for nearly a century afterwards. Seas are decorated with contemporary sailing vessels and monsters. Etching with engraving, some expert repairs at the central folds and at worm holes along the upper and lower edge, otherwise in good condition." Venezia Venice Betz n. 22; Norwich n. 15. 520 400

        Manuscript draft for an apostolic constitution regarding his third bull.

      Rome, 27. IV. 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. Cf. Bullarum diplomatum et privilegiorum Sanctorum Romanorum Pontificum. Taurinensis editio, vol. IX (1865), p. 1-4.

Gilt letterpiece of calf on the spine. Woodcut printer's mark on the title. Woodcut initials. Folding maps of Hispania and of Gallia.

Ownership entry on front & rear pastedown. Small wormhole in the blank outer margin of the last leaf, slightly affecting also the last but one leaf) (Note: This Caesar edition was produced by the grandson of the famous Venetian humanistic scholar and printer Aldus Manutius, the founder of the Aldine Press. He was the son of Paullus Manutius, and the last member of that printers' dynasty. He died without heir in 1597. This Caesar edition is a reissue of those previously published in 1575 and 1559 by his father Paullus Manutius. Aldus Manutius the Younger added a commentary of his own. The 140 preliminary pages of this Caesar edition contain the preface to the Aldus edition of 1575 and of 1559; further a treatise of Johannes Jocundus (Jucundus) on animals and some defence devices; a treatise of Io. Buteo and of Leo Bapt. Albertus on the building of wooden bridges; a list of peoples, kings, towns and rivers in Gaul; a collection of testimonia on Caesar in the work of Cicero, collected by Fulvius Orsinus; fragments of several works of Caesar; the report on Caesar by the late antique historian Eutropius. At the end, after the text of Caesar, we find an alphabetic list of Gallic places, peoples, rivers and montains, compiled from the work of Caesar and Tacitus by Raymundus Marlianus; then ca. 70 pages commentary (called scholia) of Aldus Manutius the Younger) (Provenance: On the title the elegant 18th century (?) note: 'Ex libris Francisci Ferri'. There are several candidates for Franciscus Ferrus, or Francesco Ferri. On the front pastedown and the pastedown in the rear: 'Ex libris familiae Rossi, 1824'. There are quite a number of Rossi families in Italy.

Gregorio López murió en 1560 y, cuando su hijo Domingo se dipuso a reimprimir la obra, el nieto del glosador, Gregorio López de Tovar, elaboró un ?repertorio? de términos para remitir más fácilmente a las leyes de partida pertinentes, articulándolo en tres índices: uno, enorme, en latín, extrayendo todas las materias tratadas (y en qué sentido) en las leyes y en las glosas; un resumen de este, pero en romance, para facilitar la primera aproximación, y otro, de los titulos de las leyes, desglosado en cuatro partes (no por este orden) con el índice de titulos aparecido en ediciones anteriores, el índice de nuevas entradas a añadir a ese, un índice conjunto de los dos anteriores con sus voces intercaladas y, finalmente, otro de los titulos de las leyes del derecho canónico a las que se adecuaban las leyes de las 'Partidas'. Cuando la imprenta de los Portonaris desapareció de Salamanca, López de Tovar, consciente de las ventajas (materiales y públicas) que le reportaba que el texto fijado y glosado por su abuelo de las ?Partidas?, que eran la legislación en vigor en lo civil, fuera el ?oficial? -así lo estableció una cédula de 1555 que se mantuvo vigente hasta el siglo XIX, cuando se transfirió a la edición realizada por la Academia de la Historia-, López de Tovar, decíamos, hizo publicar esta edición, copia página a página de la anterior, pero en Valladolid, en el tipógrafo real de la ciudad donde el nieto ejercía de fiscal en la Real Chancillería.

        Seravallum celeberrimum Marchiae Tarvisinae in Agro Forojuliensi opp. (idum).

      - Dal "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", Colonia, 1588 circa. Incisione in rame, colore d’epoca, cm 33,7 x 48,8 (alla lastra) più margini; ricco cartiglio centrale riccamente ornato e con didascalia descrittiva, titolo in alto, ai lati del cartiglio e tra due stemmi laterali; testo latino al verso. George Braun (1541 - 1622), chierico di Colonia, è stato il principale curatore del "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", per la prima volta pubblicato a Colonia nel 1572, poi edito ad Anversa e a Colonia fino al 1618, anno in cui apparve il sesto e ultimo volume. Queste le principali edizioni: 1572, vol. I; 1575, vol. II; 1581 vol. III; 1588 ca. vol. IV; 1598 ca. vol. V; 1618 vol. VI. Questi volumi vennero pubblicati originariamente in latino, e poi ristampati in tedesco e in francese. Il volume VI comprendeva un’edizione di piante supplementari. Dopo il 1618 le lastre divennero di proprietà di Abraham Hogenberg, il quale si incaricò delle successive riedizioni. Alla sua morte, le lastre vennero acquistate da Jan Jansson il quale, usandole come base, pubblicò un’edizione in otto volumi, riedita a sua volta negli anni successivi. Veduta della città con resa prospettica. Per Serravalle transitava una parte dei traffici commerciali che intercorrevano fra l’Europa centrale e Venezia e qui avevano sede celebri fonderie specializzate nella costruzione delle campane e fabbriche d’armi, come ricorda anche Georg Braun nel commento alla pianta di Serravalle dello stesso "Civitates": "celebrem armorum obellicorum officinam, pannorumque, vim ac frumenti negotiatione inclytum emporium. perpetuos habet montes, per quos Germani Serauallum, emporium illis gratissimum, frequentant.". Buon esemplare a pieni margini e in tenue ma bella coloritura.

        Walonis Messalini De episcopis et presbyteris contra D[ionysium] Petavium Loiolitam dissertatio prima.

      "Walo Messalinus" is a pseudonym for Claude Saumaise (or Salmasius, 1588-1653), a Huguenot classicist and theologian probably best noted for his attacks on the papacy. In this treatise he argues against the Jesuit patrologist Denis Petau that bishops and presbyters were the same in the early church, and thus that presbyterian polity was more primitive. The text of this => sole edition is printed in roman with a goodly amount of Greek, while the title-page is printed in black and red and ornamented with a woodcut vignette of a man digging beneath the motto "Fac et spera." => "Do and hope." Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 8432 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882).

Contemporary leather binding. Poor. "Folio (326x211mm.); [12], 475, [25] p.; sign.: (:)6, a-z6, A-R6, S4, T6; typographic mark on title page.- // Contemporary binding, damaged, with some loss to the board edges and to the upper front corner; upper half of spine and the leather losses in the joints replaced soundly but without it being an outstanding job; remains of gilt fleur-de-lis and crosses in spine compartments; boards framed in gilt fillet with gilt-stamped conventicle supralibris. Some darkening to paper with waterstains of different sizes, especially in the second half of the book.- // Prov.: Handwritten ex-libris on title page from the library  aux Augustins de Rennes .- // Final version (the previous versions were from 1574 and 1581) of the Antidotarium speciale by the Swiss physician Joahaness Jakob Wecker, published two years after his death at the request of his widow, Anna Weckerin, who, in turn, had earned herself a great reputation within the medical community for her food recipes to meet the needs of the sick. In fact, urged by the colleagues of her dead husband, she wrote a cookbook, 'Ein Koestlich new Kochbuch', published in 1597, the year of her death, which figured the most convenient diets for patients(1). The work of Wecker, who first studied and taught humanities (1544-1560) and then gained a doctorate in medicine at the University of Basel and who, thanks to his services during the plague of 1565, was awarded the contract as the first doctor in the city of Colmar, has been obscured by the celebrity he achieved after the persecution suffered following the publication in the 1582 of 'The seventeen books of Secrets', which became a European best-seller and was immediately condemned by the Catholic Church, including it in the Roman Index of forbidden works. This circumstance forced him to abandon the practice of medicine to return to Basel and devoted himself to the teaching of philosophy, logic and rhetoric(2). The  books of secret were recipe books with solutions to everyday life s practical situations, ranging from dyes to medical remedies, going through animal feed, remedies against woodworm or ointments to prevent hair loss. A variant of these books that became quite popular were the rustic mansion books, with answers to everything needed on a farm, for the house, its inhabitants, livestock and agriculture. Rooted in the Latin  De Rustica , a whole genealogy can be traced up to the  Dictionaries for practical life in the city and in the country from the 19th century, or the  industrial recipe books of the 20th century. But another variant is related to science, natural philosophy as it was called, and more specifically to experimentation. Its origin should be attributed to the 'Academy of the secrets'  the first constituted association of experimental science. This association was created in Naples by a group of doctors and humanists, from which the most well-known is Girolamo Ruscelli (1500-1566), and its significance should be situated in the publication, under a pseudonym, either by the collective, or by Ruscelli, of 'The book of Secrets of Alessio Piemontese', printed in 1555 in Venice, by Sigismondo Bordogna. A book that began with some very promising indications for preserving youth and for delaying senescence, a subject with a great tradition, both in manuscript and printed forms. The work was a huge success, which grew and reached several hundreds of editions in all languages across Europe over the following two hundred years(3). From among its translators and disseminators, it was Wecker however, that opened a line that would later become conflicting. After the translation into Latin of the book by Ruscelli in 1559 (and therefore being the one who most contributed to its initial dissemination in Europe), during the following years he continued publishing new editions (1560, 1561, 1563, 1568 ..., and the translation into German in 1569)(4), in which, in addition to collecting Ruscelli s modifications, he added more secrets taken from other authors. Until 1582, when he changed the format and its fate. In 'The XVII Books of Secrets' he introduced a natural philosophy approach, where he began reflecting on how to know the ultimate truth, the possibilities of man in regard to knowledge and on the nature of God, to move later to go presenting the secrets (i.e., solutions) to situations and problems in spheres such as the body (of their evils, on health and remedies), terrestrial animals, fish, birds (their care and use), metals, stones and gems, houses (location, garden, clothing, fountains...), climate, sciences, mechanical arts or different human behaviours, providing thus the catalogue of the techniques used in Europe in laboratory preparations. Focusing exclusively on this aspect, in 1574 Wecker published the first version of an 'Antidotarium Speciale', a genuine pharmacopoeia of remedies and drugs divided into three books, which he expanded in 1581 and whose latest version, as we noted earlier, his wife sent to print after Wecker s death. He called this pharmacopoeia  special because it included the recipes used to elaborate medicines under three main features: the matter that was involved in its elaboration-from fire to animal excreta, going through seeds or bones  to which he dedicates the first book; the consistency or how to apply the medicine  from waters or syrups, to poultices, pills or incenses , to which he dedicated the second book; and those designed for grooming  from lotions to oils, going through types of baths or ointments , as the object of the third book. What he indeed does under this first division is a strictly Galenic classification, of the recipes, medicines and remedies depending on the qualities and grades, and a therapeutic classification, in function of the organs or the diseases to which they are intended. Thus this recipe book would be an archetype of the complexity in which the building of the remedies for health (and beauty) derived, constituted on the basis of the Hippocratic-Galenic medicine.- // Refs.: Ferguson, II, 534; Herzog, 263.- // (1) The full title is Ein Koestlich new Kochbuch: Von allerhand Speisen an Gemuesen Obs Fleisch, Gefluegel, Wildpet, Fischen und Gebanchens.

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.

      Syriac in the classical Edessene literary form is still the sacred language of several Eastern Churches and is the language of this lexicon. The dialect in ancient times was spoken in the north of Syria and in Upper Mesopotamia around Edessa. Trost (1588-1636), a professor of theology at Wittenberg, compiled this dictionary and issued it two years after publishing his much-praised edition of the Syriac New Testament with an accompanying Latin translation; the Lexicon was likewise lauded, primarily for its completeness. This and Trost's Syriac New Testament are among the earliest books printed in Cöthen, Upper Saxony. => This is the sole edition of the dictionary and it is uncommon in commerce.
