Johannes Janssonius (approx. 1588-1664) came from a family of printers and publishers and learned the book printing trade at an early age. In 1612 he married the daughter of Jodocus Hondius and thus became a member of one of the most important publishing families in the Netherlands. During the 1630s he went into partnership with his brother-in-law Henricus Hondius and published more editions of the Mercator/Hondius atlases with the addition of the name Jansson. He grew their publishing house in the fields of geography and cartography and published newly compiled world, sea and city atlases, always competing with the Blaeu publishing house. His main works were the "Atlas Majoris Appendix" (1639), the six-volume "Atlas Novus" (1638 ff.) and the monumental "Atlas Major" comprising eleven volumes (1647).

        Chios. "Chios Maris Aegæ ieiusdem nominis Insulae Civitas

      Greece: Cologne G von Kempen 1588. Copper engraved view of Chios from the fourth volume of Braun & Hogenberg's "Civitas Orbis Terrarum. " Latin text to verso; black & white as issued. The engraving shows the port and capital of Chios, seen from the east in a bird's-eye view. The town is represented as divided into the strongly fortified Byzantine Kastro and the town itself, which is defended on the landward side by massive watchtowers with a moat and a drawbridge. Windmills line the coast; A canon fire s out to sea from a tower on the sea wall; numerous ships and galleys. Decorative title cartouche The city is often locally referred to as "Chora" (????; literally meaning "town") or "Kastro" (??????) to distinguish it from the entirety of the island with which it shares the name. Originally the site of an ancient settlement, the town was first built at the north side of a natural harbour. By the 16th century, the walled town had been further fortified by successive rulers into a massive medieval castle, the "Kastro". Good Impression; occasional spotting , one dark above windmill in upper right; crease near centrefold; Map number reversed on verso 75 rather than 57. The "Civitas Orbis Terrarum" of Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg was the first systemstic city atlas, possible intended to compliment the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum "of Abraham Ortelius published in 1570. There is strong evidence that Braun, Hogenberg and Ortelius discussed the planned work, although some scholars believe it was influenced by Sabastien Munster's "Cosmographia" R A Skelton in his introduction to the facsimile edition [ 1965] puts the case f for the "Theatrum " of Ortelius being the model for the work ( "(it) is made abundantly clear by the similarity between the two works in title, in format and in the layout and serial order of the plates and text" First publishe in 1572 in Cologne just two years after Ortelius' " Theatrum" it was published in six volumes in the years between 1572 and 1617. Georg Braun [1541-1622], Canon of Cologne Cathedral wrote the preface for all but the last volume and also the text accompanying each plan or view on the verso. The plates were engraved by Frans Hogenberg and Simon Novellanus after the original drawings of Joris Hoefnagel[1542-1600] who travelled with Ortelius through Italy and also made extensive travels through France Spain and England Following the death of Frans Hogenberg the plates were engraved by Abraham Hogenberg, believed to be his son. Jacob Hoefnagel continued the work of his father following his death, particularly the Austrian and Hungarian cities. Other notable contributers were Heinrich Rantzau with maps and plans of northern Europe, especially Denmark and Jacob van Deventer's plans of cities in the Netherlands. . Braun corresponded with mapsellers and scholars throughout the world and it was his idea to include the figures of local inhabitants in the foreground of the plans and views, This was not just to add "Local colour" but believing the work could be of refence for Military use, particularly by the Turks. the insertion of images of the human form. specifically forbidden by Islam, was intended to prevent this.

Con otros tres breves tratados de la Excellencia de las principales obras penitenciales: que son Lymosna, Ayuno y Oración. Y agora de nuevo emendado y corregido por el mismo Padre.

      En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. - in-folio. 6ff. 295pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition barcelonaise de l'un des principaux ouvrages ascétiques de Luis de Granada (1505-1588), souvent considéré comme son chef d'œuvre. Le livre fut mis à l'Index en 1559, peu après sa parution en 1554 à Salamanque, et il valut à son auteur de sérieux démêlés avec l'Inquisition dirigée par Melchor Cano. "Los teólogos contemporáneos de la Reforma miraban con ojeriza los libros de devoción en lengua vulgar inclusos los de Fr. Luis de Granada, y ésta fué la causa de la prohibición de la Guia de Pecadores y la Oración y Meditación" (Menendez y Pelayo, cité par Palau). Belle marque d'imprimeur sur la page de titre et sur le dernier feuillet. Traces de mouillure angulaire. Palau, II, 399, qui en possédait un exemplaire (avec un autre nom de libraire et sans le feuillet portant la marque d'imprimeur à la fin).

All but the Hebrew grammar are in their first editions. Martin Trost (1588-1636) studied theology at Wittenberg University and took a special interest in oriental languages. He taught that subject at the gymnasium in Köthen, where he published a Syriac New Testament and Lexicon in 1621 and 1623. He returned to Wittenberg as professor of Hebrew in 1629. He first published his present Hebrew grammar at Copenhagen in 1627. Andreas Sennert (1606-1689) studied under Trost at Wittenberg, but also studied Arabic under Jacob Golius at Leiden. After Trost's death Sennert returned to Wittenberg as professor of philosophy in 1638 and succeeded Jakob Weller as professor of Hebrew and oriental languages there in 1640. Slightly browned throughout with occasional foxing, but otherwise in very good condition. Remarkably wide-ranging studies of oriental languages written or revised by the pioneering orientalist Andreas Sennert.

      London: by Thomas East: for Iohn Wight, 1588 . 3 volumes bound in one. Third printing in English of the first two works. The third work not generally included with the two prior texts and this, most likely a third issue as well. Provenance: Early ownership signature of &#147;Lewis Morris, His Booke&#148; written by hand on the cover; &#147;The Gift of Wm. Jones to me Lew...&#148; on the Proheme leaf and again &#147;Lewis Morris...&#148; on the first leaf of the first book of the ARTE OF WARRE. Woodcut tail-pieces and elaborate woodcut initials and capitals decorated in the backgrounds, seven engraved woodcut double-page designs for the Machiavelli showing battle plans and arrangements of soldiers; a profusion of plates and figures throughout the second work showing arrangements of soldiers on the field of battle, fine woodcut decorations, capitals and initial letters decorated in the backgrounds, engraved plates of fortifications, plans for artillery, mines and fireworks and engraved tail-pieces and printer&#146;s decorations; the third work with a series of tables and plans for the ordering of battle and the ordering of soldiers. Profusely decorated with woodcuts throughout the three important and seminal works. 4to, earlier vellum taken from a larger sheet used much earlier than the date of publication and most probably for the purpose of recording transactions, original deerskin ties. 109 ff. (= 218 pp.), [23 pp. figures, illustrations, designs and tables] pp.; [50 ff.] (= 101 pp. including plates,illustrations, designs, tables); [30 ff.] (= 61 pp. including designs, illustrations and tables). A well used and rather worn copy of this very rare book, but an extraordinary survival of a work almost never encountered at auction or in the marketplace. The Machiavelli misses its title-page but is otherwise complete as called for beginning with the Proheme, the other two works have both of their title pages and are complete as called for. Probably, two blanks are missing, one at the front and one at the rear of the volume. Edges are tattered on a number of the leaves at the front and the rear of the volume and there is some folding and creasing of many of the leaves. But this is an honest and absolutely contemporary copy of one of the most elusive works and earliest translation of any work of Machiavelli into English. It precedes the translation and publication of THE PRINCE by approximately 80 years. The two accompanying works are two of the earliest works in English or translations into English of works on war and battle and are replete with rare illustrations and plans for battle and warfare. VERY RARE AND ONE OF THE MOST ELUSIVE WORKS OF MACHIAVELLI TO OBTAIN IN ENGLISH. STC considers the Certain waies for the ordeyng of souldiers to be the second part of The art of warre; Bertelli-Innocenti, however, only mentions that these two works are found bound together in the British Library copy. The editions in Italian are generally found only with the Arte of Warre and are 109 folio leaves as here. It is thus probable that the second work is in fact a second text which is included with the Machiavelli and is, as Betelli-Innocenti states, merely bound with the first work as a matter of course in the English editions of Machiavelli.<br> This is an exceedingly early copy of Machiavelli&#146;s masterpiece on warfare and fortification. THE ART OF WAR was completed in 1520, after many years of work while Machiavelli was writing his DISCOURSES AND THE PRINCE. Machiavelli spent much of his life working as a military observer and advisor for several different masters. Any 16th Century editions of THE ART OF WAR are considered highly desirable and remain especially elusive.<br> Bertelli-Innocenti, pp. 47-48 no. 131;STC 17164

        Cancionero del excelentissimo Poeta George de Montemayor, de nueuo emendado y corregido. Dirigido al Ilustrissimo Señor Gonçalo Fernandez de Cordoua.

      Por la viuda de Alonso Gomez, Impressor del Rey. N. S., 1588 - 8 hojas, 176 folios, 5 hojas de tabla. Bella encuadernación del siglo xix en plena piel marroquin granate con gran composición de hierros dorados en el lomo, filetes y ruedas doradas en cantos y contracantos. Cortes dorados. Firmada Hardy Mennel. Supra-libros en ambos planos. Excelente ejemplar con ámplios márgenes. Únicamente tiene una restauración por antiguo sello en el verso de *4. Palau 177937. Ex-libris de Delfim Guimarâes en la guarda. Jorge de Montemayor, autor portugués trasplantado a la corte castellana, es uno de los escritores clave en la literatura española del Siglo de Oro; tanto intrínsecamente por su obra, como por la gran influencia que ésta ejerció en autores de primerísima fila, que lo citan entre sus maestros y lecturas preferidas. Montemayor, como autor cortesano escribió mucho y de muy varia índole. Fundamentalmente dos recopilaciones por él efectuadas y entregadas a los impresores recogen su labor. Se trata de sus Cancioneros, también denominados, de acuerdo con la temática de su contenido, "Obras de Amores", u "Obras de Humanidad" y las "Obras de devoción". Poca fortuna tuvieron las obras religiosas, incluídas en el índice de 1559. Las obras profanas quedaron a salvo del celo inquisitorial y las "Obras de Amores" fueron editadas varias veces en España (la primera edición española es la de Zaragoza, Nagera 1562). Esta edición madrileña también denomina en su folio primero a los poemas "Obras de Humanidad", y compone el texto con la misma disposición inaugurada por la edición de Amberes de 1558. Diez ediciones en treinta años es un número estimable para nuestro siglo xvi y muy especialmente para un poeta. La abundancia de ediciones de los poemas corrobora que la difusión de Montemayor fue verdaderamente amplia entre la población lectora de la época. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Florando de Castilla lauro de cavalleros, compuesto en octava rima, por el Licenciado Hieronymo de Guerra natural de Escalona.

      en casa de Juan Gracian,, Alcalá de Henares, 1588 - 8 hojas, 168 folios. Encuadernación del siglo XIX en plena piel con gran composición de hierros dorados en lomo y planos. Decoración que se repite en las guardas también de piel. Alguna mancha ocasional y una sombra de humedad muy tenue en apenas los diez últimos folios. Martín Abad 1009. Palau 116647. Simón Díaz, BLH, X, 5822. En el margen inferior de la última hoja hay una inscripción de propiedad del siglo XVII. En el margen de la portada figura un antiguo sello de procedencia: Roman Goicoerrotea, también quedan restos de uno igual en la última hoja. De este propietario es probablemente la inscripción de la hoja de respeto: "Este es uno de los libros mas raros que tenemos en lengua castellana. El celebre D. Alonso de Ercilla miraba con singular predileccion y respeto esta obra, de la cual creo que no existe otra edicion que la presente." Jerónimo de Huerta se dió conocer como poeta, publicando en su temprana juventud este libro de caballerías en verso. Consta de 13 cantos y pertenece a la escuela orlándica, aunque con grandes reminiscencias del Amadís y otros libros caballerescos en prosa. De estructura sencilla, el poema combina la octava con otras estrofas que, por lo general, se asocian a pasajes no narrativos, como cartas, carteles de desafío, lamentos o intervenciones sobrenaturales. Huerta elabora un poema entretenido, en el que es visible la huella de autores y obras diversas, desde el Orlando furioso hasta el Tirant lo Blanc, pasando por Garcilaso de la Vega, de quien llega a copiar algunos versos en su égloga tercera. En general el Florando es un mosaico de influencia diversas que le confieren una varidad que lo diferencia, en parte, del resto de los poemas caballerescos. Al final se plantea una continuación, como casi todos, pero el autor la deja en manos de algún «curioso» que tenga tiempo y ganas de afrontar el reto.El Florando fue nuevamente editado en la Biblioteca de Autores Españoles por Adolfo de Castro en el año 1855.

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. .

        In duos Archimedis Aequeponderantium Libros Paraphrasis Scholiis illustrata

      Hieronymus Concordia, Pesaro 1588 - 4to.,[29.7 x 19.7 cm], (2) ff., 202 pp., (1) f. Bound in 18th C mottled calf, some rubbing, with title gilt on spine. Ex libris of Alexander Henry Davis on front pastedown. Title soiled, cancel on p. 9, corner of 1 leaf torn, trace of former library stamp on f.R2, pp.155-58 misbound. Light toning on scattered leaves, but overall a bright copy, very good. First edition of an Archimedean work by Galileo¿s friend and early patron Guidobaldo del Monte. Guidobaldo¿s Liber mechanicorum (1577), regarded as the greatest work on statics since the Greeks, employed the mathematically rigorous proofs of Archimedean models in investigating static and mechanical questions; the present work develops many of those ideas in a paraphrase of Archimedes¿ ¿On the Equilibrium of Planes,¿ which applied geometry to hydrostatics and proved the law of the lever using pure geometry. These works had a profound and lasting impact on the methodology adopted by 16th C Italian scientists, most notably Galileo: ¿Guidobaldo was Galileo¿s patron and friend and was possibly the greatest single influence on the mechanics of Galileo¿ (DSB). In addition to his patronage, Guidobaldo also supported Galileo¿s bid for Chair of Mathematics at the University of Padua in 1592. Galileo himself, who was sent a copy of the present work, adopted Guidobaldo¿s analysis of the lever. Guidobaldo del Monte (1545-1607, born to a wealthy family from Urbino, was a soldier, military engineer, astronomer and mathematician. In addition to writing works of applied geometry and physics, he also wrote on perspective, and he developed mathematical instruments including the proportional and elliptical compass. * Riccardi II.179; DSB IX.487-489; Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica, 12033.

Sylburg edierte Sammlung von Historikern der "silbernen" Latinität. Mit Textvarianten, reichen philologischen Kommentaren und weiteren Beiträgen. Am Beginn die Fasti Consulares ac Triumphi Acti, von Carl Sigonius ediert und kommentiert. "Sylburg gehört zu den bedeutendsten Kennern der griechischen Sprache und Litteratur, die das 16. Jahrhundert aufzuweisen hat" (ADB). Vom Landgrafen von Hessen mit einem Ehrensold für seine wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten ausgestattet, war Sylburg später in der Heidelberger Bibliothek tätig, wo er den Katalog der griechischen Handschriften erstellte. - Ohne den zweiten Band. 1590 erschien noch ein dritter Band, der die "Scriptores graeci minores" enthielt. - Schöner, annährend zeitgenössischer Rollenstempelband des Eisenacher Lateingymnasiums im alten Predigerkloster: außen eine schmale Köpferolle mit der Bezeichnung "Hei - Dur" (Haebler I, 490, 3), danach ein breiterer Bogenfries, wovon wiederum eine Figurenrolle umschlossen wird (Salvator - Petrus - Paulus - Johannes: Haebler I, 490, 2 = ebd. II, 201: Dr. 134). Im Mittelfeld schöner Plattenstempel (ebd. I, 491, IV): Trinität in Kartusche, unten von Putti gestützt; oben links Wappenschild mit dem Hl. Georg, rechts das neunfach geteilte sächsische Wappen mit Rautenkranz. Über der Platte, getrennt durch mehrere Streicheisenlinien und eine Köpferolle mit Blattwerk (Haebler I, 490, 1?), ein zweizeiliges Textfeld "Schola Isennacen"; unten analog das Bindejahr "1613". Der Hinterdeckel gleichartig angeordnet, jedoch im Mittelfeld anderer Plattenstempel: Crucifixus mit Bundeslade (Haebler I, 490, II), oben monogrammiert "I.W.". Haebler spekuliert, ob hiermit womöglich der Dresdner Meister Jacob Weidlich bezeichnet wird: "Um einen sächsischen Buchbinder scheint es sich nach dem Wappen in Platte IV jedenfalls zu handeln; die selten auftretende Darstellung des hl. Georg in dieser Verbindung würde aber besser zu einem Meister mit diesem Taufnamen gepaßt haben. Dazu kommt, daß Weidlich wohl ein älterer Zeitgenosse des Jakob Krause gewesen ist, während Platte IV noch auf dem Einbande eines Druckes von 1603 [und hier sogar 1613] erscheint. Zu einiger Sicherheit ist jedenfalls darüber nicht zu gelangen" (I, 491). Haebler nennt einen in Zwickau aufbewahrten Band (Zehner, Similitudines biblicae. Leipzig 1603) mit eben demselben verwendeten Stempelmaterial. - Vorderdeckel minimal fleckig; am Hinterdeckel fehlt der untere Beschlag am Rücken; die Prägung jedoch sehr schön erhalten. Innen leicht gebräunt (Titel etwas stärker); einige Marginalnumerierungen des 20. Jhs. (Bleistift und Kugelschreiber) in den Fasti Consulares. VD 16, S 10349. Adams S 786. BM-STC German 845. Jöcher IV, 956f. ADB 37, 284. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        View of Santiago from A Summarie and True Discourse of Sir Francis Drakes West Indian Voyage

      Leiden, 1588. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT PUBLISHED WORKS RELATING TO THE CELEBRATED TRAVELS OF THE ENGLISH NAVIGATOR SIR FRANCIS DRAKE Copper-plate engraving with original hand color: 163/4" x 217/8" References: Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 81-83. This extremely rare and colorful plan is one of the most important published works relating to the celebrated travels of the English navigator Sir Francis Drake (1540-1596). In 1580, Drake had returned to great acclaim from his voyage around the world, the second successful circumnavigation after Magellan. One of Drake&#39;s primary goals for that journey had been to wreak havoc on Britain&#39;s rivals, Spain and Portugal. To that end, he terrorized Spanish towns on the Pacific Coast of South America while raiding Spanish and Portuguese ships for their booty (and occasionally kidnapping their pilots) before returning to England. In 1585, Queen Elizabeth I gave Drake - now a national hero - yet another mission to harass the Spanish in America. After inaugurating the voyage by burning the town of Vigo in northwestern Spain, Drake and his twenty-five vessels took Santiago in the Cape Verde Islands, and it is this attack that is depicted in this memorable view. After crossing the Atlantic, they captured Santo Domingo, Hispaniola and Cartagena, Colombia, and then descended on St. Augustine, Florida, sacking and burning the town. Proceeding to the recent English settlement of Roanoke Island, they took aboard its survivors, including the writer Thomas Harriot and the artist John White, and brought them back to Britain. This view was the first ever to be published of Santiago, which lies in the Cape Verde Islands off the west coast of Africa, and it includes depictions of animals inspired by the drawings of John White, such as a flying fish at lower right and a monkey towards the center. The artist, Baptista Boazio, was an Italian living in London who presumably obtained copies of White&#39;s drawings, as well as sketches of the towns and of Drake&#39;s attacks, from a member of the expedition. The view forms part of a series of four plans (the others being of Saint Augustine, Santo Domingo and Cartagena) that comprise the only known engraved works by Boazio, although he is well known for his manuscript maps. The plate for this map is generally thought to have been engraved in Leiden in 1588 to accompany the first edition (in Latin) of Walter Bigges&#39;s notable account of Drake&#39;s expedition, published in London the following year as A Summarie and True Discourse of Sir Francis Drakes West Indian Voyage. Bigges had been a captain on a ship in Drake&#39;s fleet, and one of the 750 men who were lost during the voyage, largely to disease. This view is one of the most significant and fascinating glimpses of Drake&#39;s landmark voyage, and as one of fewer than ten known copies, it is extremely rare.. Book.
