        Quattro comedie [...] Cio' e Il Marescaleo, La Cortegiana, La Talanta, l'Hipocrito. Novellamente ritornate, per mezzo della stampa, a luce, a richiesta de conoscitori del lor valore.

      [London, John Wolfe], 1588.. Small 8vo. 4 parts in one volume. VIII, 285, (3) ff. With medallion portrait (legend: "D. Petrus Aretinus Flagellum Principum") on title (repeated three times). 19th c. calf (slightly worn).. Pirated edition of Aretino's "comedie" (the first appeared in Venice in 1553) printed by one of the most rebellious and outspoken of all the Elizabethan printers. Wolfe's production was in all probability chiefly destined for the European continent, as all of Aretino's works had been on the Roman Index since 1558; copies were offered for sale at the Frankfurt Book Fair of 1589. Aretino's comedies are considered the best of his works. They rank among the great works of Renaissance drama, and many of their leading characters were prototypes for later playwrights. 'La Talanta', for example, prepared the way for Shakespeare's character Falstaff. "[U]n frontespizo particolare ad ogni comedia [...] ha al fine una Lettera dell'Aretino a Daniele Barbaro" (Gamba). - One gathering misbound, but a nice complete copy. - Edit 16, CNCE 2486.

      . Paris, H. de Marnef & G. Cauellat, 1588. 4to. [xiv], 468, 1l. 18th century full tree calf. Spine with five raised bands, compartments rich gilt with floral patterns. 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. His reports are generally correct and not rooted in fantasy and hearsay as is often the case with his contemporaries, the sole exception being the illustration of a small dragon-like creature. Other woodcuts show trees, birds, mammals, snakes, a crocodile, a giraffe, a lobster, etc. Two illustrations cut short in the margin with minor loss. Some light, mostly marginal spotting but mostly clean. A fine copy in an attractive binding. Brunet, 4533 p. 762; Nissen ZBI, 304..

      1588. Strassburg, Bernard Jobin, 1588. Folio (315 x 215mm). pp. (16), 773, (1), (38). Title with woodcut border printed in black and red and about 30 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary blind ruled and stamped pigskin. The enlargement from the original seven to fifteen books. The publisher Bernard Jobin had first published the enlargement in 1587. The first German edition of this famous work on agriculture, gardening and cattle raising was also published by Jobin, in 1579. It was first published as 'Praedium rusticum' 1554 by Carolus Stephanus (French Charles Estienne). An amazingly popular French version 'L'agriculture et maison rustique' was first published in Paris 1564, translated by his son-in-law, Jean Liebault, it became a Renaissance bestseller with at least 80 editions by the fall of Napoleon. The work was translated into the English, German, Dutch, Italian and Scandinavian languages. It is a veritable encyclopedia of country living, with large sections on orchards and fruit. Charles Estienne belonged to the famous dynasty of Parisian printers, he was however a poor businessman and died imprisoned in 1561 at the Chatelet. "Dieser Übersetzung lag eine der Ausgaben von Charles Estienne et Jean Liebault, 'L'Agriculture et maison rustique' zugrunde, die bereits Jean de Clamorgans 'La chasse du loup' als Anhang hatte und zwischen 1567 und 1578 erschienen ist" (Lindner 563.01). The fine woodcuts are after Tobias Stimmer, J. Amman a.o. probably cut by the printer Bernard Jobin himself. First few leaves with some minor worming at the lower margin. Provenance: Bookplate of Bibliotheca Tiliana and library stamp of Biblioteka Julinska on second leaf. Lindner 563.04; VD 16E 4002..

Schweinslederband (dat. Eisenach 1613) auf 5 Doppelbünden über Holzdeckeln mit abgeschrägten Deckelkanten mit hs. Rückentitel. 7 von 8 ziselierten Messingeckbeschlägen mit Buckeln. 2 intakte Schließen. Dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. Folio (340:220 mm).. Einzige Ausgabe. - Bedeutende, von F. 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.

He studied medicine in Paris, where he took the degree of doctor, and then became a pupil of the botanist Valerius Cordus (1515-1544) at Wittenberg University, with whom he travelled in Germany. On his return to France he was taken under the patronage of Cardinal de Tournon, who provided him with the means for undertaking an extensive scientific journey. Starting in 1546, he travelled through Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt, Arabia and Palestine, and returned in 1549. In his book he describes the flora and fauna he encounters on his journey, antiquities and towns, and also the peoples and their lives and customs. Many illustrations show unusual animals and plants, 5 are of snakes, 1 shows a small dragon, the only one not based on observation.

        [AUTOGRAPH REPORT, SIGNED, DESCRIBING HIS SERVICE TO THE CROWN, HIS ADVENTURES, AND THE MALICE OF THE VICEROY OF NEW SPAIN, ALVARO MANRIQUE DE ZUNIGA]

      [Mexico]. 1588.. 60pp. Folio. Folded sheets, stitched. Top 1 1/2 inches of each leaf lacking from insect damage and damp. Minor soiling else. In a clear and legible hand. About very good. In a half morocco box. An interesting contemporary manuscript account written by Captain Martin de Herrera describing the misdeeds and abuses of the Viceroy of New Spain, don Alvaro Manrique de Zuniga, Marquis de Villamanrique, as well as Herrera's exploits in the New World. The DICCIONARIO UNIVERSAL DE HISTORIA DE GEOGRAFIA states: "This Viceroy, brother of the Duke of Bejar and a member of one of the most illustrious families of Spain, took up office on 17th October, 1585, and resigned in February 1590. He had bitter contentions with the Dominican, Franciscan and Augustinian Provincials over the question of compliance with the King's instructions with regard to the secularisation of the curacies which those orders administered.... In 1587 Sir Francis Drake seized the ship Santa Ana off the coast of California, bearing merchandise from China and Japan. Drake had travelled the Pacific previously, causing damage to the provinces of Jalisco and Sinaloa. The Viceroy had ordered the ships at Acapulco to be in readiness and nominated Dr. Palacios as head of the expedition, but although these ships pursued the English, they were unable to find them. "Grave questions arose between the Viceroy and the Audiencia at Guadalajara on judicial matters, which led to a rising of the troops on both sides. The news of these differences was probably exaggerated, but caused much uneasiness at the Court of Spain, which feared civil war, for which reason they hastened to remove the Marquis de Villamanrique from the supreme command, and appointed as Inspector (Visitador) the Bishop of Puebla, Do Diego Romano, who treated the Marques very harshly, ordering his property to be seized, even to the wearing apparel of the Marquesa; but although the Council for the Indies ordered the embargo to be removed, the Marquis died in Madrid without having recovered his property." This report, which gives the other version of the matter, is methodically divided into 101 paragraphs and describes in minute detail all his trespasses: the indignities to which he subjected the high ecclesiastical and other officials; his high-handed attitude in dismissing certain members of the Treasury, replacing competent administrators with his own servants; and a full catalogue of his iniquities. The writer states that he is not prompted by malice, but rather by an honest desire to serve his king and country's interests in reporting these incidents. The Governor began his campaign of annoyance by issuing orders before he had been properly sworn in as Viceroy. He then proceeded to dismiss as many officials as he pleased, in defiance of the King's express wishes, and appointed his own friends in the vacated positions. He ordered that Don Diego Caballero, a priest who reported certain irregularities to the Visitador, should be arrested and sent to Acapulco for banishment to Peru; he subsequently rescinded the order, and, to the indignation of the people, had the priest conveyed back to San Juan de Ulloa in a wooden cage, in which he passed through the Indian encampments and infected areas "with no other object in view than that this honored and esteemed priest should die under such conditions." Herrera was a particular bete-noir of the Viceroy, having been one of the principal informants against him. He states how he called on the Viceroy and told him that he had been "a respected resident of that city for twenty- five years, and had in every way served His Majesty (Philip II), helping to guard the city of Mexico with his arms and horses..."; and how he was at the port of San Juan de Ulloa when the corsair Juan Aquines [Hawkins] took it; and how he was amongst those who defended the port of Acapulco "against the corsair, Francisco Draque [Drake] when he sailed the Pacific." He relates how his ancestor, Captain Juan de Herrera had died in the service of the King, at Castelnovo; how his uncle, Francisco de Herrera, had arrested Francis I of France, and how his father's three brothers had died one day in the service of the Emperor (Charles V); and how he had been amongst the conquerors of the Philippines. His efforts to obtain permission to travel, the Viceroy ordered him to be arrested, his house searched and many of his papers seized. Herrera escaped, however, leaving behind his wife and children, and tried to board one of the ships of the Spanish fleet. Arriving at Tlaxcala, however, he sought sanctuary at the Franciscan monastery of Atiliqueza, where the Viceroy;s men ran him to ground, with warrants to seize him whether he happened to be in a monastery or a church. He was therefore obliged to flee to a place where the Viceroy had no authority. This lengthy report also includes a most interesting relation of the vicissitudes of Martin de Herrera and his brother, Diego; and of their efforts to enlist the sympathy of the Consejo de Indias. A fascinating contemporary accounting of sixteenth-century Spanish America. MAGGS, BIBLIOTECA AMERICANA III, 2652 (1925), this manuscript, then offered for the equivlant of $255.

        AUTOGRAPH REPORT, SIGNED, DESCRIBING HIS SERVICE TO THE CROWN, HIS ADVENTURES, AND THE MALICE OF THE VICEROY OF NEW SPAIN, ALVARO MANRIQUE DE ZUNIGA].

      [Mexico]. 1588. - 60pp. Folio. Folded sheets, stitched. Top 1 1/2 inches of each leaf lacking from insect damage and damp. Minor soiling else. In a clear and legible hand. About very good. In a half morocco box. An interesting contemporary manuscript account written by Captain Martin de Herrera describing the misdeeds and abuses of the Viceroy of New Spain, don Alvaro Manrique de Zuniga, Marquis de Villamanrique, as well as Herrera's exploits in the New World. The DICCIONARIO UNIVERSAL DE HISTORIA DE GEOGRAFIA states: "This Viceroy, brother of the Duke of Bejar and a member of one of the most illustrious families of Spain, took up office on 17th October, 1585, and resigned in February 1590. He had bitter contentions with the Dominican, Franciscan and Augustinian Provincials over the question of compliance with the King's instructions with regard to the secularisation of the curacies which those orders administered. In 1587 Sir Francis Drake seized the ship Santa Ana off the coast of California, bearing merchandise from China and Japan. Drake had travelled the Pacific previously, causing damage to the provinces of Jalisco and Sinaloa. The Viceroy had ordered the ships at Acapulco to be in readiness and nominated Dr. Palacios as head of the expedition, but although these ships pursued the English, they were unable to find them. "Grave questions arose between the Viceroy and the Audiencia at Guadalajara on judicial matters, which led to a rising of the troops on both sides. The news of these differences was probably exaggerated, but caused much uneasiness at the Court of Spain, which feared civil war, for which reason they hastened to remove the Marquis de Villamanrique from the supreme command, and appointed as Inspector (Visitador) the Bishop of Puebla, Do Diego Romano, who treated the Marques very harshly, ordering his property to be seized, even to the wearing apparel of the Marquesa; but although the Council for the Indies ordered the embargo to be removed, the Marquis died in Madrid without having recovered his property." This report, which gives the other version of the matter, is methodically divided into 101 paragraphs and describes in minute detail all his trespasses: the indignities to which he subjected the high ecclesiastical and other officials; his high-handed attitude in dismissing certain members of the Treasury, replacing competent administrators with his own servants; and a full catalogue of his iniquities. The writer states that he is not prompted by malice, but rather by an honest desire to serve his king and country's interests in reporting these incidents. The Governor began his campaign of annoyance by issuing orders before he had been properly sworn in as Viceroy. He then proceeded to dismiss as many officials as he pleased, in defiance of the King's express wishes, and appointed his own friends in the vacated positions. He ordered that Don Diego Caballero, a priest who reported certain irregularities to the Visitador, should be arrested and sent to Acapulco for banishment to Peru; he subsequently rescinded the order, and, to the indignation of the people, had the priest conveyed back to San Juan de Ulloa in a wooden cage, in which he passed through the Indian encampments and infected areas "with no other object in view than that this honored and esteemed priest should die under such conditions." Herrera was a particular bete-noir of the Viceroy, having been one of the principal informants against him. He states how he called on the Viceroy and told him that he had been "a respected resident of that city for twenty- five years, and had in every way served His Majesty (Philip II), helping to guard the city of Mexico with his arms and horses."; and how he was at the port of San Juan de Ulloa when the corsair Juan Aquines [Hawkins] took it; and how he was amongst those who defended the port of Acapulco "against the corsair, Francisco Draque [Drake] when he sailed the Pacific." He relates how his ancestor, Captain Juan de Herr

        Vinea domini. Cum breui descriptione sacramentor[um] et Paradisi, Limbi, Purgatorij, atq[ue] Inferni, a Cathechismo ... excerpta

      Venice:: Girolamo Porro,, 1588. 8vo. 8vo (169 x 114 mm). [12] ff., 186 [i.e., 190] pp., [1] blank leaf (ff. E7 with printer?s mark and E8 blank, between pp. 61 and 62, are unpaginated). Engraved title, medallion portrait of the author aged 69, and 13 engraved illustrations of which 12 full-page and 1 double-page, all by Porro; woodcut head-pieces and initials, large woodcut printer?s device on E7r. Part 2, the Dialogus de Sacramentis, with drop-title. Title rehinged and a bit stained at top, double-page engraving on a guard, with right-hand border and first two words of heading at top slightly shaved, small stain affecting double-page engraving and the engraving of Paradise on verso. Early 19th-century vellum over pasteboard, edges speckled red. ***FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, of this mystical treatise, beautifully illustrated by the Paduan-Venetian engraver Girolamo Porro (1529-1600). The author, identified on the title as a preacher from Cologne, is known only through a handful of devotional works. His treatise on the sacrament covers baptism to extreme unction, and contains chapters on paradise, limbo and hell, providing ample fodder for Porro?s rich visual imagination and skill with the burin. The double-page engraving, a vast overview of the Vineyard of the Lord, with the walled city of Jerusalem at top and Inferno at the lower right, is a visual index, containing multiple scenes from the Bible, all occurring on the same plane, or "simultaneously." These are letter-keyed to the 9 full-page engravings which show the sacraments within their relevant biblical context (Paradise, Purgatory, and Hell are not indexed). All but the last two include vines winding through the picture in visual reference to the Vineyard theme. Porro?s precise lines and densely packed mises-en-scène testitfy to the likely influence of the French goldsmith and engraver Jean Duvet, whose Apocalypse series appeared in 1555. The present copy is from the first issue, with Porro?s imprint, and the double-page plate and portrait are in their first states ; in the second issue the Porro imprint was erased and replaced with that of the heirs of Francesco Ziletti, the double-page engraving contains additional shading and hatching (still more was added for the Italian edition issued by Porro a year later), and the portrait is trimmed so that the copperplate does not overlap the typeset verses, as here. Our copy contains variant states of plates 2-5 and 8-9 (noted by Mortimer in the second Harvard copy), with letters keying the plates to the double-page engraving, and with the river completed in engraving no. 4. This copy is wider than the Hofer copy described by Mortimer, in which both edges of the double-page engraving are cropped. The errata page at the end of part 1 (59v), which in the 1589 edition was covered with a pasted down Crucifixion engraving, shows traces of paste here, as in the Folger copy (cf. Mortimer). Brunet Suppl. II:215 (this issue); Harvard/Mortimer 378; BM-STC Italian 502; EDIT-16 CNCE 35555.

James Haar in Grove online& & "Pride of place in Lassus's sacred output must go to the motets, just as in Palestrina's it goes to the Masses. There are no less than some 530 in all: the majority (almost two-thirds) are for five or six voices, while only one-fifth are for four voices, and there are small numbers respectively for seven voices upwards, or for just two or three - the little bicinia or tricinia as Lassus's contemporaries would have known them. These statistics are perhaps surprising, and not proportionate to our present-day appreciation of Lassus's motets, which has tended to favour the smaller textures - four-part and less - for reasons of practicality in performance or the study of counterpoint..." Roche: Lassus p. 1. & & A fine example of 16th century music printing from this important Parisian music publisher. The two cousins, Adrien le Roy (ca. 1520-1598) and Robert Ballard (1525-/30-1588) received a royal privilege from King Henry II to print and sell music in 1551; their first publication dates from that year. "The most frequently published composer was Lassus, who was a personal friend of Le Roy. Le Roy & Ballard played an important part in disseminating his newest works in France and in Europe generally... The typographical material was particularly fine. The elaborate woodcut borders on the title-pages, the print4r's marks and the 'lettres grises' or historiated woodcut initials in several sizes in the style of Jean Cousin are superb exampes of French Renaissance graphic arts." Krummel & Sadie p. 161.

        Articles pour proposer aux Estatz et faire passer en loy fondamentalle du Royaume.

      S.l. [Paris] 1588 - in-8, 14 pp., cartonnage Bradel de papier bleu, dos lisse, pièce de titre en veau cerise sur le plat supérieur (reliure moderne). Bon exemplaire. Il s'agit d'un programme émanant vraisemblablement d'un adhérent de la Ligue et visant à faire entrer la "catholicité" dans le groupe encore flou des Lois fondamentales de la monarchie. Sans sanction particulière des Etats, c'est ultimement ce qui s'imposera par la force des faits lors de la conversion de Henri IV. L'auteur demande aussi l'enregistrement de tous les canons dogmatiques et disciplinaires du Concile de Trente, vieille revendication du parti catholique qui, elle, ne recevra jamais de satisfaction jusqu'à la fin de l'Ancien Régime. Suivent de nombreux autres articles, pas spécifiquement liés au spirituel. Absent de SHF. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Libro de la Oración y Meditación: en el qual se trata de la Consideración de los principales mysterios de nuestra Fe. 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).

Au XVIIIe siècle, parurent deux réimpressions reproduisant la date, l'adresse et les colophons de l'édition de 1588, l'une due à Pierre-François DOUBLET (1705), l'autre à Pierre CHALOPIN (vers 1750).Rare exemplaire.

Profuse early ink annotations in several hands. · Comments: First edition of Ashe's first published work, issued just two years after the first edition of Dyer's Reports.

About two-thirds of the pages have annotations, for a total of approximately 644 annotations in at least three early hands. All of the annotations are in Law French. · References: ODNB, David Ibbetson, "Ashe, Thomas (c.1556-1618)"; Cowley 85; Beale R482a; STC 7391; ESTC S100017..

        Wesalia in Ducatu Clivensi Urbs Clara Opibus [Wesel]

      Cologne, c. 1588. Map. Copper engraving, 34.5 x 48 cms, recent hand-colour, Latin text on verso. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum - Cities of the whole World - was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns). Braun wrote the text and Ortelius - who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel - supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says ‘of secondary importance’) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary.

        Lettre de Monseigneur de Nevers présentée au Roy, estant en son Conseil le 6 aoust 1588.

      S.l. 1588 - in-8, 12 pp., un feuillet vierge, cartonnage Bradel de papier rose, dos lisse muet, étiquette de titre de veau cerise sur le premier plat (reliure moderne). Bon exemplaire. Louis IV de Nevers (1539-1595) a toujours louvoyé entre le soutein à Henri III et l'adhésion à la Ligue sans jamais se prononcer de façon nette. En revanche, il s'est toujours montré très hostile aux Réformés : cette pièce est un discours très ferme pour engager Henri III à lever deux fortes armées contre les Huguenots. Pas dans SHF.
