Incisione originale su rame tratta dal quarto volume de "Civitates Orbis Terrarum in aes incisae et excussae, et descriptione topographica morali et politica, illustratae", Coloniae Agrippinae, 1572-1617. Formato della tavola cm.35x52 (margini cm.42x55). Testo descrittivo, in latino, al verso. L'incisione è opera del calcografo fiammingo Franz Hogenberg. L'incisione è tratta dal quarto dei sei volumi che compongono l'Opera, stampato presumibilmente attorno al 1588. > Bedini / Fanelli, "Lucca, Iconografia della città", 40: "La stampa offre una rappresentazione fedele della città nello stato in cui si apprezzava nella seconda metà del XVI secolo .... Il valore della pianta è notevole come documento sia per la storia della città sia di un nuovo modo di rappresentazione della realtà urbana; in essa si individuano chiaramente la struttura a maglia regolare della città romana, la successiva fase di crescita medievale e la nuova dimensione conseguente la costruzione delle mura". Nuti, "Ritratti di città, visione e memoria tra Medioevo e Settecento": "la prima inedita immagine di Lucca, quasi sicuramente elaborata su una pianta tracciata durante i lavori di costruzione delle nuove mura, che si vedono per lunghi tratti già in piedi".

Paris 1588 In-8 de 395-(1) pp., vlin souple rabats, traces de lacets (reliure de l'poque). Pamphlet attribu au ligueur plusieurs fois emprisonn pour ses prches, Nicolas Rolland du Plessis catholique royaliste, hostile aux politiques aussi bien qu'aux huguenots (Hauser). Son discours sur les dsordres et misres de ce Royaume fut imprim trois reprises en cette mme anne 1588 - sans pouvoir dresser la chronologie des tirages - et rpandu par toute la France. Il rclame la guerre l'hrtique et en mme temps moins d'impts, en rformant l'attribution des offices et bnfices. Contre la mauvaise distribution des richesses, il admet un certain luxe pour les grands, mais condamne absolument celui de la bourgeoisie. Le roi devrait imposer les plus riches pour soulager les petits et promulguer des lois somptuaires, surtout contre le luxe des vtements fminins, etc. Nombreux passages souligns parfois accompagns de notes manuscrites anciennes. Feuillets liminaires roussis avec cernes clairs ; galerie de ver sans atteinte au texte sur plusieurs cahiers ; vlin frip.

APULÉE.
Lugduni Batavorum [Leyde], Ex officina Plantiniana, 1588, 2 tomes en un vol. in-8, vélin à recouvrement, dos lisse portant les nom, titre, éditeur et année manuscrits, tr. rouges mouchetées (rel. de l'ép.), [24]-432 et 298-[38] pp., index. (CN30) Titre complet : L. Apuleii Madravensis opera omnia quae exstant, emmendata et aucta : Cura Petri Colvi Brugensis; cum eiusdem ad omnia Uberioribus notis. et Petri Colvi in L. Apuleii opera omn ia notae uberiores. "Rare deuxième édition comportant les importantes notes de Pierre Colvius".De la plus insigne rareté, l'édition originale fut imprimée par le même l'année précédente, en 1587. Elle fut rééditée chez le même par Bonaventura Vulcanius (1538-1614) en 1594, cette fois-ci au format in-16. Apulée, inspirateur de Boccace, du Don Quichotte de Cervantès ou encore du Gil Blas de Santillane de Lesage, demeure le seul exemple d'un sophiste accompli dans la littérature latine. De même, il reste l'un des derniers représentants de Platon et l'un des premiers de la philosophie néo-platonicienne. C'est sur les conseils du philologue Juste Lipse (1547-1606) que Colvius, philologue et juriste brugeois alors âgé de vingt-et-un ans entreprit d'éditer cette brillante et savante édition. Pour l'archéologue gantois Joseph-Emmanuel-Ghislain Roulez (1806-1878), Colvius passera à la postérité pour avoir été "le premier qui montra la bonne voie à suivre dans l'emploi des manuscrits et ressources qu'offre pour la correction du texte la connaissance du style particulier à Apulée et autres écrivains africains comme lui", et d'ajouter : "Ni avant ni … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAUN, GEORG – HOGENBERG, FRANZ.
Dal "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", Colonia, 1588 circa. Incisione in rame, colore d'epoca, cm 33,3 x 50,2 (alla lastra) più margini; titolo in basso a sinistra, posto entro riquadro, stemma della città in alto a destra, due figure in basso a destra; 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. Questa pianta di Bologna si trova nel quarto dei sei volumi dell'opera (Bibliografia: R. V. Tooley, "Dictionary of Mapmakers", 1979, pp.79 e 305; G. B. Comelli, "Piante e vedute della città di Bologna", Bologna, 1914, p.81, n.7; A. Brighetti, "Bologna nelle sue stampe. Vedute e piante scenografiche dal Quattrocento all’Ottocento", 1979, p.10; V. Roncuzzi – Roversi - Monaco, "La raccolta di piante della città e di carte del territorio bolognese conservate nella Biblioteca Comunale dell’Archiginnasio", L’Archiginnasio, 1983, p. 204). 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, rie … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) & HOGENBERG, Franz (1535-1590)
[Koln: G. Kempen, ca. 1581-1588] - Single sheet (sheet size 15 7/8 x 20 7/8 inches; 13 4/8 x 17 2/8 inches to the neat line) full margins showing the plate mark. A fine engraved detailed map of Brightstowe, the title as a headline and within an elaborate mannerist strap work cartouche lower left, three personages lower left, coat of arms upper right; exceptional original hand color in full (one or two pale marginal stains, vertical fold mark, a little toned at the edges). An attractive bird’s-eye view of Brightstowe (Bristol) from the German edition of the ‘Civitas Orbis Terrarum’. An exceptionally fine and detailed view of Bristol, the important and ancient city on the banks of the River Avon, the ‘Civitas Orbis Terrarum’, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. This magnificent bird's eye view shows the streets and buildings of the City with the river running through it, in great detail surrounded by open countryside in which sheep safely graze. The "Civitates " was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates " contained lite … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georg BRAUN & Franz HOGENBERG
Anversa e Colonia, 1588. Grande pianta della città stampata su due fogli, ispirata alla celebre carta del Pirro Ligorio, tratta dal Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Il grande atlante di città edito da Georg Braun e per la maggior parte inciso da Hogenberg contiene 546 vedute e mappe di ogni parte del mondo; è la prima opera di questo genere mai stampata. Questa straordinaria ricostruzione di Roma durante il regno di Augusto, arricchita da una cospicua legenda con 269 richiami, costituisce il lavorò più ambizioso contenuto nel Civitates Orbis Terrarum, del quale oltretutto è una delle sole tre mappe a doppio foglio. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva, leggeri restauri perfettamente eseguiti per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. A good example, with fine original colour, of the Braun & Hogenberg Plan of Rome, first published in the 1588 edition of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Braun & Hogenberg's view is based upon the work of Pirro Ligorio. However, the title banner and lower key embellishments are completely revised, the former lacking the strapwork used by Braun & Hogenberg and replaced with a tapestry style fringe, while the lower key is now embellished with images of two nobles. Rome is shown from the west in a bird's-eye view that was a major achievement in its day. It includes the most important buildings from antiquity, several aqueducts, the Aurelian Wall and large arterial streets. The three figures in Roman garb in the foreground underscore the aim of meticulous reconstruction. Mont Testaccio is shown on the far side of the Tiber in the lower right-hand edg … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cecil, William.
London I. Vautrollier for Richard Field 1588 - Small Quarto. 18cm x 13cm. 19pp. First edition (in setting that collates A-B). Beautifully bound in quarter pigskin over marbled boards to style, pink title label. new endpapers. Internally clean and bright. Woodcut printer's device to title page. Blind stamp of North Library to title page; from the Tony Sweeney collection. Woodcut headpiece to Aii. A scarce contemporary account issued anonymously by the Chief Advisor (or Spymaster if we're being blunt) of Elizabeth I, regarding the destruction of the Spanish Armada and the subsequent annihilation of many of its survivors who were despatched on the beaches of Galway by the local populace. The final two leaves detail the ships lost and their crews in 1588 with an additional list of men and ships lost in the two months preceding. Apart from the fascinating period detail and providing an understanding of the professional and detailed nature of the Elizabethan propaganda machine under Cecil, this ephemeral pamphlet rarely seen at all (only two or three copies in auction since 1961), occasionally seen bound with "A Copie of A Letter Sent Out of England." provides a harrowing account of what the enemies of the crown could expect when washing up on the shores of the scepter'd isle: "He inviteth also that there was at the same time another great ship cast away in Tereawley.and all the residue of that ship are slain and drowned.Meleghlen Mac Cab, A Galloglasse, killed 80 of them with his Galloglasse axe."

GRANADA (Luis de).
Con licencia en Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. in-folio. 6ff. 121pp. (i.e.119). + 186pp. 1f. + 249pp. (i.e.247). Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition barcelonaise de cet ouvrage du dominicain espagnol Luis de Granada (1505-1588), initialement publié en 1561 à Lisbonne. "L'influence des écrits de Louis de Grenade est encore très mal connue, mais il est hors de doute qu'elle fut durable. Très apprécié par saint Charles Borromée, sainte Thérèse d'Avila et Saint Pierre d'Alcantara, ses contemporains, il fut l'une des principales sources d'inspiration de Saint François de Sales" (Laffont Bompiani). Le présent texte fut notamment l'un de ceux édités en chinois aux Philipines au début du 17e siècle par les missionnaires espagnols. Belle marque de l'imprimeur Jaume Cendrat sur le titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Titre en rouge et noir. Réparation ancienne dans le blanc du titre où une fenêtre avait été découpée. Mouillure angulaire à la fin du volume, quelques rousseurs et autres salissures. Palau, 107920 (avec un autre nom de libraire).

Antique print, titled: 'CXCI Questa e un altra sorte di machina, laquele e molto utile', Two counterweight catapults outside a city wall. Several men are filling a ditch with rubble while a guard with musket walks the wall. Engraving on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This print originates from a rare, monumental and valuable book: 'Le diverse et artificiose machine del Capitano Agostino Ramelli', Paris, 1588. This interesting book ('one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises') is a series of engravings of various machines devised by the engineer Agostino Ramelli. Born in southern Switzerland, Ramelli served in the French army during the Wars of Religion (1562-98) and proved himself a competent engineer during the 1572 siege of La Rochelle which brought him to the attention of the future King Henri III (reigned 1574-89). In 1588, Ramelli published this book, written in Latin, French and Italian which provides detailed images of both civic and military machines. More than half of the volume consists of engravings of pumping machines and water mills, while another large section is devoted to ingenious siege engines. It is unknown how many of these proposals were actually used; some are recognisable today, particularly the use of pistons to raise water from one level to another, but others appear too complex and seem to indicate that Ramelli produced this work to demonstrate his knowledge of mechanics rather than to serve as a guide to the practical uses of technology. The book was of great technological importance. References for the book: Adams R … [Click Below for Full Description]
