Janssonius Johann (1588 - 1664) Amsterdam
Artist: Janssonius Johann ( - 1664) Amsterdam; issued in: Amsterdam; date: ca 1652. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Printed on 4 sheets; - size (in cm): je 40 x 51; - description: 4 maps showing the world after the Peutinger Table, a map of the Roman road network completed and revised between 250 and 500 A.D. The only surviving manuscript is in the possession of the Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna, it was made in 1265 by a monk in Colmar. Conrad Peutinger ( 1465 ? 1547) was a German humanist, jurist, diplomat, politician, and economist. Peutinger's name is mainly associated with the famous Tabula Peutingeriana, a medieval copy of a late antique world map of Roman roads from the British Isles up to India and Central Asia. It was discovered by the Viennese scholar Conrad Celtes, who in 1507 handed it over to Peutinger for publication. Parts of the map were not published until 1591 by the Antwerp-based publishing house of Jan Moretus and in 1598 by Peutinger's relative Marcus Welser and Abraham Ortelius.Its name derives from Konrad Peutinger, its owner around the time of Velser's publication.Peutinger's manuscript is in 12 sections but only 11 have survived--the first section is lacking, likely containing both Britain's road networks and the original title cartouche.; The form of the map is essentially that of a practical route map in strip form. There are detailed lines of roads and staging posts with the distances between them marked, but no representation of direction. Because of this, the format of the map is unfamiliar and a … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALERA, Cipriano
(Londres), en casa de Arnaldo Hatfildo, año de 1588. 8º. 8 h. inc. port., 488 p., 4 h. Plena piel de época, restauraciones con injerto en lomo. Primera edición muy rara. Es éste el primero de los libros que publicó; Cipriano de Valera –el único español nombrado en el Índice, referido como “el hereje español”–, y el más polémico de todos, pues supone un ataque al Papado y a la misa. El propósito de ambos tratados era demostrar con la palabra de Dios la falta de base del sistema papal y de la misa. En el tratado sobre el Papa hace una recopilación de los desmanes atribuidos tradicionalmente a los papas. Contiene una curiosa colección de refranes que reflejan el concepto que merecía en la mente popular el clero de aquellos tiempos. La idea principal del tratado es presentar a Cristo como el único mediador entre Dios y los hombres. Idénticos propósito y método se encuentran en el tratado sobre la misa. Palau, 348569; Salvá, 769;, que no llegó a tener esta edición, si refiere la segunda, de 1599, con el nº 3884. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

PAPPUS OF ALEXANDRIA
Pesaro: Girolamo Concordia, 1588. First edition. FIRST EDITION of arguably the most important source book for the works of the Greek mathematicians. The magnificent Horblit copy in contemporary (probably original) boards. Pappus of Alexandria , (fl 320AD) was "the most important mathematical author writing in Greek during the later Roman Empire, known for his Synagoge ("Collection"), a voluminous account of the most important work done in ancient Greek mathematics... Pappus seldom claimed to present original discoveries, but he had an eye for interesting material in his predecessors' writings, many of which have not survived outside of his work. As a source of information concerning the history of Greek mathematics, he has few rivals." Pappus's principal work "was the Synagoge (c. 340), a composition in at least eight books (corresponding to the individual rolls of papyrus on which it was originally written). The only Greek copy of the Synagoge to pass through the Middle Ages lost several pages at both the beginning and the end; thus, only Books 3 through 7 and portions of Books 2 and 8 have survived. A complete version of Book 8 does survive, however, in an Arabic translation. Book 1 is entirely lost, along with information on its contents... Such a range of topics is covered that the Synagoge has with some justice been described as a mathematical encyclopedia. "The Synagoge deals with an astonishing range of mathematical topics; its richest parts, however, concern geometry and draw on works from the 3rd century BC, the so-called Golden Age of Greek mathematics...

RAMELLI, Agostino.
for the author, Paris, 1588. Exceptionally fine copy, with distinguished provenance, of one of the most important books on the science and technology of machines in the renaissance, and one of the most famous illustrated books of the sixteenth century – a tour de force of book design. This is a splendid copy in contemporary French gilt vellum, ruled in red, and entirely untouched. We are not aware of a similar copy in quality since the Norman-Freilich copy (sold Sotheby’s 2001, $291,750). Provenance: Francoise d'Espinay de Bretagne, first wife of Henri de Schomberg, comte de Nanteuil (1604 gift inscription on front free endpaper); Princes of Liechtenstein (stamp on title); Otto Schäfer (sold Sotheby’s 1995, £38,900). A fundamental book in the history both of technology and of book design, and "one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises" (Norman). The scientific import of Ramelli’s work resides in his demonstration of "the unlimited possibilities of machines. For example, the dozens of water-powered pumps and mills shown in his treatise clearly demonstrated that non-muscular power could be substituted for horse- or human-power in any mechanical task requiring continuous or repetitive application of force, and the portrayal of over twenty types of water pump . destroyed the notion that there were necessary limits t the configuration or arrangement of a machine" (ibid.) About half of the engravings depict hydraulic devices, the rest showing military machines as well as fountains, bridges, cranes, foundry equipment, etc., and a smattering of innovative de … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRANADA (Luis de).
En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. in-folio. 4ff. 244pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition imprimée à Barcelone de ce traité de morale du dominicain espagnol Luis de Granada (1505-1588), l'un des grands textes classiques de la littérature ascétique espagnole. Sa première publication remontait à l'année 1556 et, condamné par l'Inquisition en raison de sa tonalité novatrice, il fut mis à l'Index en 1559. "Ecrivain précis et coloré, Luis de Grenade dispose d'une phrase ample et lente, imitée de l'art oratoire classique. Dans son argumentation, il a souvent recours aux subtilités de la scolastique; mais lorsqu'il décrit la misère du pécheur ou les ravissements de la vie spirituelle, sa prose se fait agile, poétique et extraordinairement docile à l'expression de ses sentiments" (Laffont Bompiani). "Esta obra, y el Libro de la Oración y Meditación, son las más célebres y leídas de Fr. Luis de Granada. Tanto es así, que es frecuente entre los bibliófilos, y en las tertulias que se originan en las librerías de viejo, recordar los innumerables casos de célebres personajes calificados de heterodoxos, y sin embargo seducidos por el admirable estilo y las riquezas literarias de la Guia de Pecadores y el Libro de la Oración y Meditación" (Palau). "The best known of his ascetical writings, and the one that achieved the greatest measure of success, is "The Sinner's Guide" (La Guia de Pecadores).

TARTAGLIA, Niccolò
[by Thomas Dawson] for John Harrison [the elder], London, 1588. First edition in English, very rare, of the first three books of Tartaglia's 1546 Quesiti et Inventioni Diverse, dealing with ballistics and expanding and correcting the treatment in his 1537 Nova Scientia, the first systematic treatise on the subject. The appendix of the translator Cyprian Lucar is compiled from writings on gunnery by contemporary authors. "Tartaglia proved both mathematically and experimentally that the trajectory of a missile fired from a cannon was a curved line throughout, thus contradicting the 'impetus' theory derived from Aristotle's Physics, which stated that a projectile's trajectory was described by two straight lines united by a curved line (Tartaglia was the first Renaissance scientist to point out serious flaws in the Physics). Tartaglia demonstrated that from the beginning of its flight, a projectile was affected by gravity, which, along with wind resistance, caused its forward velocity to lessen while increasing the speed of its fall. Tartaglia also observed a relationship between the speed of projection and the speed of fall: the greater the initial speed, the less the gravitational influence. Through experimentation, he determined that the maximum cannon range, at any given initial speed, was obtained with a firing elevation of forty-five degrees" (Norman Catalogue 2053). In fact, in the Nova Scientia Tartaglia argued that the path of a projectile consisted of rectilinear parts at the beginning and end of the trajectory, with a curved part between; it was only in the Quesiti t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jahrhunderts. Ein eigenes Kapitel (das 6.) ist den "Riesen oder sehr grossen Leuten zu vnsern Zeiten" gewidmet. Der dekorative Titelholzschnitt zeigt den Kampf zwischen David und Goliath. - Einige Lagen etwas gebräunt, sonst sehr gut erhalten.

LAURENS (Honoré de)
S.l, s. n, 1588. In-8, plein cartonnage vélin ivoire à la Bradel, titre doré et daté en pied, tranches rouges (rel. moderne), (1) f., (14), 368 p. [sign. a8 A-Z8]. Edition peut-être parisienne, publiée à la suite de celle d'Aix-en-Provence (1586), de cet essai représentatif de l'état d'esprit d'une partie des parlementaires de province pendant les Guerres de religion. Avocat général au Parlement d'Aix-en-Provence, Honoré de Laurens (1554-1612), qui deviendra archevêque d'Embrun, était favorable à la Ligue dont il fut l'un des principaux représentants locaux. Il composa cet essai très largement diffusé, pour glorifier l'édit de Nemours signé par Henri III le 18 juillet 1585, qui révoquait les édits de tolérance en faveur des protestants. L'auteur se fait le porte-parole d'une politique ultra-catholique et intransigeante dont il récapitule les principes. Il se réfère à des exemples historiques ou à certains de ses contemporains comme Jean Bodin, pour démontrer que l'unité religieuse est essentielle à la conservation des États. Il glorifie la mission sacrée des parlements - "glaive que Dieu [...] a mis entre les mains du prince" - dans leur combat contre l'hérésie et exhorte le roi, jusqu'à la menace s'il faiblissait, à lutter sans merci contre l'hérésie protestante. (Pallier, 'Imprimerie à Paris pendant la Ligue', 1585-1594, n°117, p. 245. Renouard, III, n°496). L'essai est précédé de nombreux éloges et sonnets des principales personnalités littéraires contemporaines d'Aix-en-Provence: Sigurian de Clapiers de Vauvenargues, César de Nostredame, Du Perier, Louis de Galaup de Ch … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARISTOTLE
A VERY RARE EDITION OF ARISTOTLE'S ETHICS IN LATIN. ARISTOTELES. Ethicorum ad Nicomachum libri decem Lyon, Apud Bartholomaeum Vincentium, 1588. £1500 8vo, (xiv) 919 (i). Roman and Italic letter. Printer’s device on title-page, motto “vincenti”, title partly underlined with blue pencil, ms. provenance note “Collegii Societatis Jesu Heidelbergae 1739”. Woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, and diagrams. Early ms. annotations: ex libris at top of front pastedown and, just beneath, a long gloss by a different hand, probably a student, on the history of Aristotle’s transmission from the East to the West, passing through the Arab language and the medieval Latin commentators. German bookseller Label Occasional blue, green and red pencils underlining, page edges infrequently lightly dampstained. In early vellum over boards, a.e.b. A lovely copy. This Latin translation of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics resulted from the collaboration of the Byzantine scholar Johannes Argyropoulos (1415-87), who emigrated in Italy after the fall of Constantinople by cause of the Ottoman invasion in 1453, and his pupil, the Florentine man of letters Donato Acciaioli (1429-78). They emended the original Greek text and translated it into Latin, providing it with a commentary. The book includes an opening letter from the philologist Antonio Francini da Monte Varchi to the Count Raimondo della Torre from Verona, celebrating the della Torre family for their generous patronage of the humanistic studies and praising the passion of his age for the translation of Greek classics into Latin.

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".

Lauther, Christoph, Jesuit priest (b. 1561).
4to (165 x 197 mm). Latin manuscript on paper in an elegant scribal hand, titles in red; written space ruled at right and left in red and blue ink. (2), 138 pp., final blank leaf. 19th-century half morocco. The only known source for this 16th-century Biblical comedy written by Father Christoph Laut(h)er of the Jesuit College of Lucerne; According to the contemporary annotations on the title page, the play - a dramatic poem in five acts which takes as its subject the Old Testament story of Joseph - was first performed at Michaelmas, 1588 in Lucerne's fish market before the papal nuncio and other notables; the character of the Pharaoh scattered coins - both real and fake, the latter made of lead - amongst the crowd. Indeed, one of the final acts is entitled "Distributio proemiorum: Rex Pharao nummos distribuet, Regina sexta ex floribus". Here, Pharaoh first makes a little speech in verse; then the prizes are distributed to each class of the Jesuit school, the king and the queen each pronouncing a distich. - Jesuit drama was practised in the colleges of the Society of Jesus between the 16th and 18th centuries as a way of instructing both students and audience in correct language use and oratory skills, assimilating Christian values, and imparting Catholic doctrine. The increasingly elaborately produced plays were therefore based on accounts from the Bible or saintly legends, often including musical elements and sometimes even ballet. The author of this play, Christoph Lauther, joined the Jesuits in 1579: after studying rhetoric and philosophy at Ingolstadt, he is recorded at t … [Click Below for Full Description]

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, K?nigsberg, 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 Heav … [Click Below for Full Description]

"On a chilly evening in early March 1507, high in the Appenine Mountains of northern Italy, a group of cultivated gentlemen and ladies sit around the fire in the audience chamber of the Duchess of Urbino discussing the qualities of the perfect courtier. Such is the setting of one of the most celebrated books of the Italian Renaissance...an international best-seller for a century after its first publication in 1528" (Albury). The Book of the Courtier is an allegory about the ethical responsibility of courtiers to guide and positively influence their prince, placing social responsibility upon the court for its leader's actions. Rulers and their courtiers must be educated in order to properly perform their functions; without judiciousness and wisdom, the system breaks down. Upon its translation to English, The Book of the Courtier became an important source for Shakespeare, who referenced Castiglione in multiple plays including the Henriad, tragedies such as Hamlet, and comedies such as Much Ado About Nothing and As You Like It.
