        Wappen und Stammbuch darinnen der Keys. Majest., Chur und Fürsten, Graffen, Freyherrn, deren vom Adel, etc. Mit kunstreichen Figuren durch den weitberühmpten Josten Amen gerissen sampt iren Symbolis und mit Deutschen Reymen geziert, (...) verlegt durch Sigmundt Feyrabendt.

      Frankfurt, S. Feyrabendt, 1589. 4o. Modern high quality gold decoratd full leather. Some wormholes throughout the bottom left corner, mainly in the margins. Many contemporary owner's marks and scribbles in ink on the title page, a.o. by John Goodington and John Bonoyer. Exlibris Daniel de Bruin. (7) pages text and 120 pages with full page woodcuts by and after Jost Amman. The woodcuts depict 61 coats-of-arms, 32 allegories and portraits (some may be portraits of the noblemen related to the coats-of-arms) and 27 costumes (tracht). Every plate comes with a poem of 8 lines presumably by Feyrabendt. This famous, rare and early book on heraldry and other subjects was intended for all those who love and appreciate the free arts. It is a showpiece of the skills of the artist Jost Amman, with great variety in the illustrations. The woodcuts of the coats-of-arms are wonderfully detailed and provide information for all those interested in heraldry. Jost Amman (June 13, 1539 - March 17, 1591) was a Swiss artist, celebrated chiefly for his woodcuts, done mainly for book illustrations. Amman was born in Zurich, the son of a professor of Classics and Logic. He was himself well-educated. Little of his personal history is known beyond the fact that he moved to Nuremberg in 1560, where he continued to reside until his death in March 1591. He worked initially with Virgil Solis, then a leading producer of book illustrations. His productiveness was very remarkable, as may be gathered from the statement of one of his pupils, that the drawings he made during a period of four years would have filled a hay wagon. A large number of his original drawings are in the Berlin print room. About 1,500 prints are attributed to him. He was one of the last major producers of woodcuts for books, as during his career engravings were gradually taking over that role. Sometimes he included both a cutter's knife and a quill pen in his printed signature on prints, showing that he cut his own blocks. Most woodcut artists normally let a specialist Formschneider cut the block after his drawing, but in these cases Amman did it himself. A series of engravings by Amman of the kings of France, with short biographies, appeared in Frankfurt in 1576. Sigismund Feierabend published a Bible in Frankfurt that was with woodcuts by Amman, the Panoplia Omnium Liberalium Mechanicarum et Seden-tariarum Artium Genera Continens, containing 115 plates, which is of great value. Amman's drawing is correct and spirited, and his delineation of the details of costume is minute and accurate. Paintings in oil and on glass are attributed to him, but none have been identified. Amman died in Nuremberg, Bavaria, aged 51. H148

        DELLA RAGION DI STATO, LIBRI DIECI Con $1Tre Libri delle Cause della Grandezza, e Magnificenza delle Città$2.

      Venezia, appresso I Gioliti, 1589. In-8 p. (mm. 223x146), bross. muta ottocentesca, 8 cc.nn., 367 pp.num., marca tipografica al frontesp. e fregio tipograf. al fine; ornato da testatine e pregevoli grandi capilett. figur. a vignetta, inc. su legno. "Prima edizione" collettiva - dedicata all’arcivescovo di Salisburgo Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau - del più celebre trattato italiano di politica dopo “Il Principe” di Machiavelli. Cfr. Diz. Biografico degli Italiani,XIII, pp 356-357: “Il cuneese Giovanni Botero (1544-1617) nel 1588 pubblicava "Delle cause della grandezza e magnificanza delle città" un’operetta di mole esigua ma lucida e penetrante, forse il suo capolavoro; viene elaborata in essa per la prima volta una teoria scientifica sulla dislocazione topografica e sull’incremento degli agglomerati urbani, che identifica precisi rapporti fra ambiente naturale, risorse economiche e sviluppo demografico. Allegato sin dall’anno successivo, quale appendice inseparabile, al più ampio trattato "Della ragion di Stato" (dato alla luce nel 1589 da Giolito de Ferrari), l’aureo opuscolo ne condivise lo straordinario successo editoriale.. L’opera "Della ragion di Stato" tentava di dare una risposta al problema politico centrale della Controriforma, la crisi aperta dal machiavellismo con il dissociare la politica dalla morale e con il ridurre la religione a strumento di potere. Tuttavia il successo di questo trattato, che dilagò per decenni con frequenti ristampe italiane e versioni in spagnolo, francese, latino e tedesco, non fu dovuto alle poche pagine dottrinali, bensì alla sistematica esposizione di tutta la nuova problematica che lo Stato moderno sorgente portava con sè: esazione fiscale, organizzazione militare, commercio, industria, amministrazione della giustizia, annona, urbanistica; meglio di qualsiasi altra opera di quell’età, il libro del Botero documenta il tipico trapasso, che allora si operava, dallo Stato patrimoniale di impronta feudale allo Stato di “politìa”, fondato sull’amministrazione oculata, la centralizzazione livellatrice, l’estinzione progressiva delle cariche ereditarie o venali. In questo orizzonte culturale un posto distinto spetta alle questioni economiche: in tema tributario il Botero sostiene la funzione preminente dell’imposta rispetto ai cespiti demaniali nel finanziamento della spesa pubblica e la prevalenza della tassazione dei redditi a sgravio delle gabelle sui consumi; inoltre tenta di conciliare il protezionismo delle nascenti manifatture con l’aspirazione alla liberalizzazione degli scambi e delle vie commerciali..”. Cfr. anche Gamba,1271: “Gio. Botero è stato uno de’ pochissimi autori del secolo decimosesto che abbiano trattato di politica e di scienze economiche. Il suo stile è piuttosto trascurato, ma chiaro e disinvolto, e senz’affettazione di traslati” - Adams,B,2548 - Bongi,II, pp. 432-33. Leggermente rifilato al margine sup., altrimenti fresco esemplare ben conservato.

        Epitome Theatri Orteliani, preacipuarum orbis regionum delineationes, minoribus talibus expressas...

      Antwerp: Philippo Gallaeo, 1589. FIRST LATIN EDITION. Contemporary (possibly the original) vellum overlaid onto early vellum; some marginal soiling and browning, index page partially torn, all maps clean. Contemporary ownership signatures on title. First Latin edition under this title, complete with the map plates engraved by Galle, and text printed by Plantin just weeks before his death. The previous Latin edition was first published in 1570 under the title Theatrum orbis terrarum, with Latin poetry rather than prose by Hugo Flavoliusd. Like the Theatrum this version was immensely popular and was translated in prose form into Dutch (1577), French (1579), Italian (1593), English (1603), and German (1604). The miniature version of Ortelius's atlas was mostly used by travelers, students and all those for whom the folio would be inconvenient. Copies were eagerly sought after and usually received considerable wear. The atlas was printed through the eighteenth century. Ortelius (1527-1598) was the father of the modern atlas. His Theatrum orbis terrarium was the world's first regularly produced atlas. Combining maps with comprehensive text, the Theatrum sets the standard for future atlases.

        Madonna col Bambino sulla Luna crescente

      1589 - Bulino, 1589, firmato e datato in lastra in basso. Da un soggetto di Jacopo Ligozzi. Esemplare di stato unico. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, piccolo restauro nell’angolo inferiore sinistro, per il resto in ottime condizioni. Il Carracci realizzò questa incisione durante il suo periodo fiorentino alla corte dei Medici quando venne probabilmente a contatto con il Ligozzi che dal 1578 era attivo a Firenze. Il soggetto fu subito molto popolare, come attestano le numerose copie, coeve e non, di questa stampa. Bibliografia: Bartsch 34; De Grazia 150. Dimensioni 170x210. Engraving, 1589, signed and dated on lower plate. After a subject of Jacopo Ligozzi. Example in one state. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmer to platemark with minor repair on lower left corner, otherwise in excellent condition. Carracci realized this engraving while he was working at dei Medici court in Florence; this was also when he probably met Ligozzi who worked in the same city from 1578. The subject was immediately very popular, as the many copies, both contemporary and not, certificate. Bartsch 34; De Grazia 150. Dimensioni 170x210. Dimensioni [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Castra Regis. [A Treatise on the Succession to the Crown of England].

      1589 - manuscript in a single attractive secretary hand with italic for emphasis, with title page then a dedicatory epistle "To the Queenes Highnes" (2 pages), 76 pages, plus blanks, 4to (200 x 145 mm), epistle signed by the author dated January 1568 [i.e. 1569], occasional light spotting and staining contemporary calf gilt with frame and oval decorative centrepiece, rubbed, small portions of leather eaten away at corners, base of spine, and lower cover, weak at hinges [with:] Autograph manuscript notes by Philip Bliss on Roger Edwardes and the Castra Regia, including transcripts of letters and documents, together with related correspondence (including an autograph letter signed by Sir Thomas Phillipps) and a draft of Bliss's introduction for his Roxburghe Club edition, c. 50 pages, 4to (215 x 170 mm), 1840s, calf-backed marbled boards, scuffed. [with:] Historical Papers I [including Castra Regia, printed from this manuscript], for the Roxburghe Club, presented by Philip Bliss and Bulkeley Bandinel (London, 1846), morocco-backed boards by Clarke and Bedford, slightly worn. An exceptional rarity: an original manuscript copy of an important and early contribution to the great political question of Queen Elizabeth's reign — the succession. Queen Elizabeth was, of course, the last Tudor: from the moment of her accession to the throne England was a heartbeart away from a crisis in leadership that could easily lead to civil war (as had happened in the previous century). The Queen came under enormous pressure from Parliament and indeed her council to name a successor but she resolutely refused to do so, knowing that this would immediately lead to a court in waiting that would be a natural magnet for disaffected courtiers. Debate over the succession continued throughout the reign, becoming increasingly febrile as Elizabeth aged and remained without children. Edwardes's argument is striking. Whilst most contributions to the debate argued in favour of one or other successor, or argued for the importance of establishing a succession in Parliament, Edwardes emphasised the personal nature of monarchical rule and the importance of strong monarchical authority. After surveying the rule of English monarchs since the conquest, he argued that Parliament had no business expressing a view on the succession and it was the Queen's right not to name a successor, especially if doing so would weaken her authority. An early draft of Castra Regia survives (BL, Lansdowne MS 95), as does another presentation copy dated March 1569 (BL, Add. MS 36705). This manuscript is of particular importance as the signature at the end of the epistle is Edwards's own, as is revealed by comparison with the two signatures in BL, Lansdowne MS 95, fols 4 and 5. The tract, perhaps unsurprisingly, found royal favour: "Never prince accepted any bookke better then the queene doth this" (quoted in Smith, p. 640). Edwardes revised the text later in the year after the Northern Rebellion (in which he fought) and this revised text enjoyed some circulation amongst Elizabethan politicians and councillors (Smith identifies six manuscripts including copies in the papers of Lord Burghley, Walter Mildmay, and Robert Beale). The current manuscript, despite the date of the preface, is an example of this revised text. Although more has come to light about Edwardes since Bliss wrote about him in the 1840s, many details of his life remain murky. His origins were in the Welsh gentry, he counted the Herberts of Pembroke amongst his relatives and John Dee amongst his friends, and he was employed as both a soldier and also a government spy amongst the Marian exiles in France. He followed Castra Regis with another tract on the succession, Cista Pacis Anglie (a copy of which has only recently come to light), in which he changed his mind about the need to establish the succession and found himself in the Tower for his trouble. He seems to have had a religious revelation in prison and devoted the rest of his

        Copricapo a forma di ventaglio

      1589 - Bulino, circa 1589-95, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra nelle prove di secondo stato. Esemplare nel raro primo stato di due, avanti lettera. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, intervento di restauro perfettamente eseguito nella parte bianca superiore, tracce di colla al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Scrive De Grazia "L’incisione è sempre stata interpretata quale rappresentazione di un ventaglio, ma deve trattarsi di qualche cosa d’altro, perché del ventaglio non ha l’impugnatura e quella al centro è troppo scomoda per consentirne un uso siffatto. Non esiste una spiegazione dei tre ovali nell’angolo basso a destra e di un quarto appena accennato un basso a sinistra. Diane Russel ha suggerito che forse l’oggetto era inteso quale copricapo da ritagliare e portare in una festa. In questo modo ciascuna scena negli ovali poteva venire alternata a piacere al busto e al paesaggio del copricapo". Se questa fu la sua destinazione probabile che sia realizzata nel 1589 in occasione delle nozze tra Ferdinando de’ Medici e Cristina di Lorena. Gli esemplari di primo stato sono assolutamente rarissimi. Engraving, about 1589-95, signed on plate at bottom left ( second state only). Example in the rare first state of two, before letters. Magnificent proof, rich tone, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the copperplate, restoration carried out perfectly in the white top, traces of glue on verso, otherwise in excellent condition. De Grazia writes "The engraving has always been interpreted as a representation of a fan, but it must be something else, because the fan does not have the handle and one in the center is too cumbersome to allow such use. There is no explanation of the three ovals in the lower right corner, and a fourth just mentioned a lower left. Diane Russell suggested that perhaps the object was intended as a cap to cut out and bring in a party. In this way each scene in the ovals could be alternated with pleasure at the bust and the landscape of the hat". If this was his destination likely to be realized in 1589 on the occasion of the wedding of Ferdinando de 'Medici and Christine of Lorraine.

        I Dioscuri di Monte Cavallo

      Roma 1589 - Le due statue virili della piazza del Quirinale raffigurano i Dioscuri, mentre trattengono per le briglie i cavalli scalpitanti, ed appartengono probabilmente all’antico tempio di Serapide edificato da Caracalla sul monte nel 217 a.c. Sotto papa Sisto V le statue furono collocate sulla nuova piazza, dopo un lungo restauro terminato nel 1585. L’incisione del Tempesta viene realizzata a pubblicizzare la nuova sistemazione antistante la residenza papale. L’opera è edita da belga Nicolas van Aelst, uno dei tanti tipografi trasferitosi a Roma nel XVI secolo, attirati dalla fiorente attività calcografica che si era sviluppata nella città. Incisione in rame, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "giglio e doppio cerchio", con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Timbro di collezione sul verso. Molto rara. Bibliografia: Bartsch 557. The two male statues of the square of Quirinale depict the Dioscuri, holding wild horses by the reins; they were probably part of the antique temple of Serapide built by Caracalla on the hill in 217 b.C. Under Sixtus V the statues have been placed on the new square after a long period of restauration ended in 1585. Tempesta’s work has been realized to publicize the new placement before the Pope’s residence. It has been printed by Nicolas van Aelst, a Belgian printer who had moved to Rome in the XVI century with many others; they were all attracted by the flourishing printing business that was developping in the city. Copperplate, printed on contemporary laid paper with "lily with double circle" watermark, with margins, in excellent condition. Collection stamp on verso. Very rare. Bartsch 557.

        1589 Magiae Naturalis by Porta Magic Alchemy Poison Gunpowder Occult Witches

      Neapoli, Apud Horatium Saluianum. D. D. LXXXVIIII. [1589] - 1589 Magiae Naturalis by Porta Magic Alchemy Poison Gunpowder Occult Witches EXCEEDINGLY RARE & IMPORTANT Folio Masterpiece One of the most impressive occult works on natural magic! “Magiae Naturalis” by Giambattista della Porta covers a variety of subjects including occult philosophy, astrology, alchemy, mathematics, and meteorology. It was one of the first works of ‘popular science’ and indeed was popular – it was continually reprinted in various languages through the mid-17th-century! This 1589 Naples edition is incredibly important in that it added new observations that were not previous published. While the earlier editions focused more on ancient world learning of that of Pliny, this edition includes “twenty books” on geology, optics, poison, cooking, metallurgy, magnets, cosmetics and perfume, gunpowder, and invisible writing! In the preface of the 1658 English edition, Porta states, “A certain Frenchman in his Book called ‘Daemonomania,’ Tearms me a Magician, a Conjurer, and thinks this Book of mine, long since Printed, worthy to be burnt, because I have written the Fairies Oyntment, which I set forth oreily in detestation of the frauds of Divels and Witches; That which comes by Nature is abused by their superstition, which I borrowed from the Books of the most commendable Divines I pas over other men of the same temper, who affirm that I a Witch and a Conjurer, whereas I never write here nor elsewhere, what is not contained within the bounds of Nature.” Porta describes that he is no magician, however, he does claim to know the secrets of special spells and potions. For instance, “to make a man believe he has changed into a bird or beast is done by infusing mandrake, stramonium or Solanum manieum, belladonna, and henbane, into a cup of wine.” According to Summers, “Porta says that he has known those who on drinking this menstruum imagined themselves to be fish, endeavouring to swim; or geese, hissing and trying to peck grass, and similar idle fancies.” Item number: #581 Price: $7500 PORTA, Giambattista della Io.

        Pela il Chiù (Roma: De Rossi XVII secolo)

      1589. Incisione in rame, 451 X 660 (404X523) cm. In alto l'iscrizione "Il piacevole e nuovo giuoco novamente trovato detto Pela il Chiu". Gioco di 56 caselle non numerate disposte in due ellissi. Ogni casella presenta una figura ed una combinazione di dadi. Le combinazioni vincenti o perdenti sono indicate con le sigle P (paga), T (tira). La sigla Q (quattrini) indica la posta da pagare o tirare. Agli angoli in alto a sinistra: "Questo foglio il bel gioco t'apresenta / Di Pelalchiv venuto in luce adesso / Col qual si fugir l'otio ti talenta / Ti potrai tratener tal hor con esso / Ma qui non ti pensar che si consenta / Giocar per vitio che no(n) te concesso / Ma s'il tempo utilme(n)te spende voi / Gioca per spasso e tira se tu poi."; in basso a sinistra: "Con sei quattrini un pezzo alegramente / Poi stare, e tener un spasso d'eccelenza / Ma perchè sappi il tutto intieramente / Del gioco ti dirò la continenza / Prima piglia tre dadi et habbi mente / Al ponto che frarai con diligenza / E come quel ch'ai fatto haverai notato / Cerca quel ponto attorno a quest'ovato."; in alto a destra: "Come hai trovato il punto che fatt'hai / Guarda quella figura di diritto / E second'essa ti governerai / Per che quel ch'ai a far troverai scritto / E s' haverai da tirar, tu tirerai. / S'hai da giontar anchor starai al ditto / Chi T. tira vuol dir. P. paga o gionta / E Q. quatrini il numero poi si conta"; in basso a destra: "Quei che nel fine il ponto scontrarano / Come a farina tirano i denari / Con l'honoranza e quei che più farano / Giontano sin che al numero sien pari; / E la meta le riffe tireranno. / Del gioco sempre e acciò che siate chiari / La riffa de diciotto l'altre avanza / Tira ogni cosa et anco l'honoranza. Ambrogio Brambilla incise la matrice in rame nel 1589 per l'editore Giovan Battista di Lazzaro Panzera di Parma, attivo a Roma negli ultimi anni del Cinquecento (cfr. un esemplare della tiratura originale conservato al British Museum, REG. 1869,0410.2460). Il rame venne poi ristampato durante tutto il Seicento dai De Rossi a Roma, che tolsero il nome di Panzera ma lasciarono il monogramma di Brambilla. Il gioco inventato da Brambilla fu copiato subito da altri editori italiani e servì da modello per la produzione sei-settecentesca italiana del Gioco del Pela il Chiù. Di conseguenza tutte le caselle relative alle diverse combinazioni che danno luogo a vincite e perdite rimasero fondamentalmente le stesse, con poche varianti. (Alberto Milano. Giochi da salotto, 2012). Il gioco è elencato nel magazzino di Vaccari del 1614 come 'Il giuco del gioco Chiù', insieme ad un piccolo gruppo di altri giochi, tra cui la famosa 'Oca' (Ehrle, 1908, p. 62). Essa appare anche nell'inventario De Rossi del 1648 che documenta la divisione dell'eredità da Giuseppe de Rossi l'anziano (Consagra, 1993, p.512). Evidentemente rimase popolare, perché nel Settecento esistevano ancora tavole (Bertarelli). Il linguaggio delle iscrizioni indica una fonte nell'Italia nordorientale. Questo esempio ha l'indirizzo di Giovanni Battista Panzera, un incisore e stampatore di Parma che aveva acquistato nel Borgo di Roma. Alcune opere di Brambilla portano il suo indirizzo. Forse a causa dei suoi contatti nel nord dell'Italia. Michael Bury, 'The Print in Italy 1550-1620'). Ambrogio Brambilla (active 1579-1599) fu in uncisore e cartografo italiano principalmente attivo a Roma.

      8. Titel in Rot u. Schwarz m. Holzschn.-Druckermarke. 4 Bll., 536 S., Späterer Pgmt.-Bd. m. durchzogenen Bünden u. goldgepr. Rückenschild. Erste dt. Ausgabe des bedeutenden Gesandtschaftsberichtes in vier Briefen, gesammelt erstmals 1589 in Paris erschienen. Die Übersetzung stammt aus der Feder von Michael Schweicker. - Ogier Ghislain de Busbecq (1522-1592) war Diplomat in Diensten der Habsburger in England wie in Spanien. - Im Herbst des Jahres 1554 schickt Ferdinand I. Busbecq als Botschafter zu Süleyman I. nach Konstantinopel, damit er einen Waffenstillstand mit dem Osmanischen Reich aushandele, um das geschwächte Reich der Habsburger zu entlasten. Busbecq bricht am 23. November 1554 von Wien auf und reist mit seinem Gefolge im Wagen zunächst nach Buda, von dort auf der Donau nach Belgrad, anschließend wieder auf dem Landweg über Nisch, Sofia und Adrianopel nach Konstantinopel. Am 20. Januar 1555 in Konstantinopel angekommen, findet Busbecq den Sultan jedoch nicht in seiner Residenz vor. Er erfährt, dass sich Sultan Suleiman gerade auf Reisen in Kleinasien befindet, so dass er ihm weit in den Osten, in die alte Königsstadt Amasya, nachreisen muss. Nach dreiwöchigem Warten reist Busbecq ihm über Ankara hinterher, um schließlich am 7. April 1555 in Amasya in einer Audienz mit dem Sultan einen sechsmonatigen Waffenstillstand auszuhandeln. Als er den Sultan endlich antrifft, hat dieser augenscheinlich gerade keine Lust auf Friedensgespräche und weist ihn mit den Worten Güzel, Güzel, schön, schön, ab. Zum Trost schenkt er Busbecq ein paar Tulpen- und Hyazinthenzwiebeln, dazu einige Fliederpflänzchen. All dies bringt Busbecq mit nach Hause und führt diese Pflanzen unter Vermittlung seines Freundes Charles de l'Ecluse [...] dadurch in Westeuropa ein. Auf ihn geht die Bezeichnung der Tulpe [...] als Tulipam zurück: anscheinend hatte er den Namen des Turbans [...], an dem Blüten oft getragen wurden, für den Namen der Pflanze selbst gehalten (Wikipedia). Im November 1555 verlässt Busbeck Wien erneut und bricht wieder nach Konstantinopel auf, wo er bis 1562 für sechs Jahre als Botschafter in Konstantinopel wirkt. His letters contain perhaps the most interesting of all accounts of Turkish life, and his description and analysis of the Ottoman state can hardly be superseded (Blackmer). - Enthält auch Busbecqs Ratschlag [...] wie man wider den Erbfeind christliches Namens und Bluts Krieg führen möchte [De re militari contra Turcam instituenda consilium]. - Einband min. berieben bzw. angestaubt. Fliegende Vorsätze entfernt. Titel m. Feuchtigkeitsfleck. Etw. gebräunt. - VD16, B 9867 IA 128.112 Göllner 2188 Kertbeny 1179.
