        IL PASTOR FIDO Tragicomedia pastorale.

      Venetia, presso Gio. Battista Bonfadino, 1590. In-16 gr. (mm. 199x140), mz. pelle mod., fregi e tit. oro al dorso, 138 cc.nn., grande marca tipografica al frontespizio (fontana con un solo zampillo che fuoriesce da un?'anfora; intorno alla base e all?'anfora teste grottesche; iniziali I.O.N. intrecciate e motto ?"Cohibita surgo?"). Testo in corsivo ornato da numerose testat., capilettera e finalini silografati. "Prima edizione", ?"dedicata al Ser.mo Carlo Emanuele Duca di Savoia, nelle Reali Nozze di S.A. con la Ser.ma Infante Caterina d?'Austria?". Cfr. Piantanida,IV,4075: ?"E?' in 5 atti, con prologo, e coro alla fine di ogni atto; l?'azione si svolge in Arcadia; non sono indicati i mutamenti di messinscena. Fu rappresentata questa pastorale la prima volta a Torino con grandissima pompa nel 1585 per le nozze di Carlo Emanuele con Caterina d?'Austria celebrate in quell?'anno, ma fu stampata cinque anni dopo in quest?'ediz., ormai ritenuta la "prima". (Alcuni bibliografi ritennero per prima quella stampata a Ferrara da Vittorio Baldini, pure nello stesso anno). E?' la pastorale più importante dopo l?'Aminta e con quella apre la numerosa serie di questo genere teatrale che nel Seicento ebbe il suo maggior sviluppo e la migliore fortuna; le sue ristampe furono moltissime (si videro oltre quaranta ediz. prima della morte dell?'A. e quelle posteriori neppure si contano); fu adattata in ogni maniera, tradotta in molti dialetti italiani (specialmente in quello napoletano ed in quello bergamasco) e nelle principali lingue straniere..?". Cfr. anche Graesse,III,167 - Gamba,555: "Rara" - Adams,I, p. 515 - Parenti, p. 283 - Di Domenico ?"Nuptialia della Bibl. Braidense?",37. Alc. cc. con uniformi lievi arross., altrim. esemplare ben conservato.

      (Köln, Quad?), ca. 1590.. Einblattdruck in Kupferstich. 26 x 34 cm. BSB, Einblatt VII, 24; Drugulin II, 345. - "Calvin, Luther und Papist an einem Tisch, Calvin schneidet einen Kalbsbraten, Luther spielt die Laute und der Papist isst einen Brei. Ratio wartet auf, der Widertäufer leckt die Pfanne aus, die Eintracht hat einen Hirsch gebracht" (Drugulin II, 344 zur holländischen Ausgabe, die er als "Confessions-Schmaus" bezeichnet; zur hier vorliegenden deutschen Ausgabe vermerkt Drugulin: "Copie von der Gegenseite und mit deutschen Versen ... Kupferstich aus Quads Offizin". Drugulin ordnet das Blatt unter 1570 ein, da Quad seine Tätigkeit erst 1587 in Köln beging, muss das Blatt entsprechend später entstanden sein - oder doch nicht aus seiner Offizin stammen. - Bis auf den Rand beschnitten, etwas gebräunt und leicht fleckig; im oberen Bereich eine dünne Papierstelle mit einem kleinen Loch.

        LA GIERUSALEMME LIBERATA Con le figure di Bernardo Castello; e le annotationi di Scipio Gentili, e di Giulio Guastavini.

      Genova, appresso Girolamo Bartoli, 1590. In-8 (mm. 242x170), p. pergam. settecentesca (risg. rifatti), tit. oro su tassello al dorso, pp.num. 11,(1),255,(1),71,(1),40, cc.nn. 4, con bel frontespizio figur. inc. in rame che include il ritratto del Tasso in medaglione; ornato da testat., grandi capilett., finali e con l?'Argomento di ogni canto racchiuso in eleganti cornici decorate, in silografia. Dedica di Bernardo Castello a Francesco de' Ferrari, in data Genova, 25 Aprile 1590, seguita da alcune Poesie di autori vari in lode del Tasso e del Castelli. In fine "Allegoria del Poema e Tavola di tutti i nomi proprii". L'opera è illustrata da 20 magnifiche tavv. a piena pag., disegnate dal Castello e inc. in rame. E?' questo uno dei rari esempl. che non ha la tavola del Canto IV duplicata con quella del Canto V. "Prima edizione illustrata dal Castello". Cfr. Gamba,948: "Buona per lo più reputasi la lezione.. ed oggidi' dee principalmente la sua fama all'ornamento delle figure, le quali furono intagliate con molta franchezza da Agostino Caracci e da Giacomo Franco. Quelle del Caracci sono ai Canti VI, VII, VIII, X, XII, XVI, XVII, XIX e XX". Nicola Franc. Haym.. nella Lettera al Lettore alla sua bella edizione del Tasso fatta a Londra nel 1724, loda grandemente questa ediz. dicendo: "L'edizione in quarto di Genova di questo celebratissimo Poema è fin'ora preferita ad ogni altra, e presentemente è divenuta si' rara che è difficile il rinvenirla". Cfr. anche Brunet,V,665 - Olschki,V,5721: "magnifiques figures" - Cicognara,1112: "Bisogna osservare che il rame del 4 canto non sia ripetuto nel 5 come succede in molti esemplari, altrimenti l'edizione è imperfetta" - Raccolta Tassiana della Bibl. A. Mai di Bergamo, n. 173: ?"Edizione molto pregiata per le figure del Castello e anche per le annotazioni ?". Benezit,III, p. 348: "Bernardo Castello ou Castelli (1557-1629), peintre et graveur.

        Santander.

      Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Cologne. c.1590, French edition. - Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Size: 355 × 320 mm. (14 x 12½ inches). Some showthrough of text from verso on left margin.Very good condition, but very small hole in top border. Beautiful view of the Spanish city of Santander. Showing the port and harbour, ships in the bay, mountains beyond and three women, a donkey and a baby in the foreground. Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum was a monumental work completed over 45 years between 1572 and 1617, and was one of the best-selling works of the late sixteenth-century. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first printed views of many towns). Ortelius, who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. George Braun wrote the text. There were a number of editions, but it is extremely difficult (and as Koeman says 'of secondary importance') to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates, their number and order does not vary.

        L'isole piu famose del Mondo.

      Heirs of Simon Galignani, Venice 1590 - Small folio [20.25 x 29.5], (6) (of 12) ff., including engraved title, 201, (1) pp., including 47 copper plate engraved maps in text. Note: bound contemporaneously without 2nd half of index (b signature). Complete with all maps. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum, borders of covers gilt-ruled with arabesque in center, spine gilt with double bands. Head of spine chipped, and some soling to covers. Engraved ex libris of Thomas Heath, Merchant of Exeter and another of the Western Reserve Historical Society, stamped withdrawn. Some soiling in outer margin of title and scattered leaves, faint waterstain in margin of others. Notwithstanding a fresh copy with the maps in excellent impression. Excellent enlarged edition of one of the most beautifully engraved Italian island books of the sixteenth century. L'isole piu famose was the first with maps engraved on copper; and with the Gastaldi edition of Ptolemy¿s Geografia, 1548, it was among the few geographical works of any kind illustrated with engravings. This edition of Porcacchi contains much more than the first. According to Phillips Atlases it contains 17 maps not in the edition of 1572, including two relating to America: Jamaica and Puerto Rico, here called ¿Isola di S. Giovanni¿ for San Juan. Also included are maps of Spagnola and CUBA, Altogether, pages 154 to 184 relate to America. The volume closes with ¿Descrizione del Mappamondo¿ and ¿Discorso intorno alla carta da navigare,¿ pages 193 to 201, illustrated with two splendid Lafrerian-style maps of the world engraved by the Paduan Girolamo Porro. Porro, well-known as a book illustrator, later engraved maps for the first small-format Mercator atlas and for a Ptolemy (both appearing in 1596). According to Shirley, the oval-shaped world map ¿is a finely-executed reduction of Camocio¿s large world map of 1567, one of the last in the long line of derivatives from Gastaldi's prototype of 1546.¿ * Adams P-1906; Sabin 64105; Shirley 127-28; see The World Encompassed 86.

        Egesippi

      Strasburg - Theodosius Rihel 1590 - The Works of Hegesippus and Josephus bound in one volume. Rebound in cloth. This book contains the works of Hegesippus and Josephus. The text of these works are in German. Hegesippus lacks all after folio 84, and Josephus lacks all before folio 73. With ink annotations throughout. Saint Hegesippus, c. 110 c. 180 AD, was a Christian chronicler of the early Church who may have been a Jewish convert and certainly wrote against heresies of the Gnostics and of Marcion. Hegesippus' works are now entirely lost, save eight passages concerning Church history quoted by Eusebius, who tells us that he wrote Hypomnemata in five books, in the simplest style concerning the tradition of the Apostolic preaching. St. Hegesippus appealed principally to tradition as embodied in the teaching which had been handed down through the succession of bishops, thus providing for Eusebius information about the earliest bishops that otherwise would have been lost. The American theologian Robert M. Price has recently questioned the historical authenticity of Hegesippus, suspecting that 'He-gesippus' may be a garbled version of 'Josephus'. Josephus, 37 c. 100AD, also known as Yosef Ben Matityahu and after he became a Roman citizen, as Titus Flavius Josephus, was a first-century Jewish historian and apologist of priestly and royal ancestry who survived and recorded the destruction of Jerusalem in AD 70. His works give an important insight into first-century Judaism. Josephus was an important apologist in the Roman world for the Jewish people and culture, particularly at a time of conflict and tension. He always remained, in his own eyes, a loyal and law-observant Jew. He went out of his way both to commend Judaism to educated Gentiles, and to insist on its compatibility with cultured Graeco-Roman thought. He constantly contended for the antiquity of Jewish culture, presenting its people as civilised, devout and philosophical. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is very mild wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages have some browning, withhandling marks throughout. The pages present of Hegesippus have browned watermarks, that do not affect visibility of the text. There are occasional browned watermarks throughout Josephus, most prominent between pages 99-102 and from 491 through to the Register. Many of the pages from Hegesippus have repairsto the bottom margins, that do not affect the text. There are repairs to folio 84 of closed tears, obscuring text. The fourth page from the rear of the text has repairs to closed tears that does not affect the text. There are copious inkannotations throughout. A label has been previouslypartially removed from the front pastedown. Overall the condition is very good, excepting the missing pages. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Late Sixteenth Century Copy Petition of the Mayor and Burgesses of Totnes, Devon

      c.1590 ? - The modern synopsis of the document is . "The Rt Hon Francis Earle of Bedford Lord Lieut of Devon (note in corner that the petition must be with (?) the Lords of the Council, not the Lord Lieut.) Recites Totnes is an ancient Corporation and the Mayor and ex-Mayor are the justices of the Peace within the Borough. That the town stands on the River Dart 7 miles from Dartmouth and from thence a daily passage by water within 4 miles of Torbay a spacious bay able to receive 500 ships and about 14 hrs sail from the coast of Normandy and Brittany and well -known to the French and others by continual trade. Is required to have a magazine of 84 barrells of powder with lead and match at the town charge. The principal strength is 60 trained soldiers 40 musketeers and 20(?) cornets who are summoned to general musters sometimes 6 or 8 miles from the town and that year 20 miles leaving the town naked and indefensible. The petitioners (?) to be allowed to raise a trained band of 100 and have same privilege as Weymouth Plymouth Dartmouth and Barnstaple to choose our officers and muster only within our precincts." On watermarked paper neatly folded and bound into half calf lettered in gilt along the spine with marbled boards. Delivered contemporaneously with the Armada (1588), this petition from the good officers of Totnes reflects the continued threat from across the channel, and the need for towns along the channel coast to arm themselves sufficently. Almost certainly a contemporary copy, it would seem unlikely the original is still extant, not found in the Devon Record Office Online Catalogue Size: 4to (unfolded 390 x 300mm) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Use of the Celestial Globe in Plano.

      - London, [By John VVindet] for Tobie Cooke, 1590. FIRST EDITION. Small 4to, ff. (iv), 43, (lacking final blank). Roman and Black letter. Woodcut printer's device on t-p (McKerrow 237), large floriated and historiated woodcut initials, woodcut head and tail pieces, "Willaim Rose his book 1735" on pastedown, "Moses Roses book" on verso of A4, "Moses Rose his book November 20 1797" on recto of E1, ms. account notes on pastedown and verso of title bleeding through onto recto, similar notes on rear fly leaves, occasional note in margins of text. T-p and verso of last dusty, t-p fore-edge slightly frayed, occasional light marginal waterstaining in upper and lower margins, the odd thumb mark and oil splash, small tear in lower blank margin of E3. A good copy, stab bound in contemporary limp vellum, vellum stubbs, binding agreeably soiled and creased. VERY RARE, only early edition of this work on the use of celestial globes. The text is in the form of a dialogue between a Scholar and Master and was intended to aid the student astronomer/ cosmographer/ navigator to recognize the stars and their constellations. It contains a table of stars listing their longitude, latitude, magnitude and constellation. There is also a description of the nova that appeared in Cassiopeia in 1572-4. This event was witnessed across Europe and attracted the attention of the best astronomers of the day, among them Tycho Brahe, who published his account in 1575. This new star initially reached the brightness of Venus. Hood recounts the various theories regarding this phenomenon (that it was one of the stars of Cassiopeia or a comet) with much of the argument centering on whether this new light moved or not. By showing that it remained fixed, Brahe proved that it was not an atmospheric disturbance, such as a comet, but a new star. While Brahe himself was not a supporter of Copernicus' theory, that the sun not the earth is at rest at the centre of the universe, his discoveries in relation to the nova made this theory easier to accept. ÊHood (fl. 1582-1598), a graduate of Cambridge, held the first English lectureship in mathematics and was one of the first popularisers of the 'new learning'. This appointment was initiated and financed in 1582 by Thomas Smith, to whom this work is dedicated, and the lectures were given in the city of London. Smith was the first Governor of the East India Company, Governor of the Muscovy Company and Treasurer of the Virginia Company and a patron of science, trade and exploration. Hood's publications, which ranged from an English translation of Ramus' 'Elements of Geometrie' to a guide for mariners, as well as his inventions of mathematical instruments, show the wide scope of mathematics as a discipline in the late C16. He also lectured on geography and navigation. He is credited with popularising astronomy and the Copernican theory in England. This is the first of his two works on the celestial globe; the second was published in 1592 ('The use of both the Globes Celestiall and Terestriall', London). In 1589 Hood was, with Hakluyt, one of the subscribers to Raleigh's Virigina Company; he invented a sector, ancestor of the slide rule and the calculating machine in 1598, the same year as Galileo.According to the present t-p, one could also buy from Mr Hood himself at his house in Abchurch Lane 'two hemispheres' (22 inch square) to use with the present text. They illustrate the various constellations and stars by human and animal figures. Regrettably however they were very rarely united with the book and where they have survived they have generally done so separately. 'There is a copy in the British Museum, the text (without the plates) being in the Library, and coloured impressions of the two planispheres in the Map Department. This is the only copy noted in the STC. Bishop adds three further copies inÊ America, i.e. Washington, New York P.L., and Charlotesville, and of these Charlottesville alone has any plate, and only the South Pola

        Hariot's Virginia.] Admiranda narratio fida tamen, de commodis et incolarum ritibus Virginiae, . Anglico scripta sermone a Thoma Hariot

      Theodor De Bry, Frankfurt 1590 - Expertly bound to style in early limp vellum. Housed in a black morocco backed box. A fine copy of the De Bry first edition in Latin of Hariot's Virginia: the first eyewitness pictorial record of the American southeast and the first illustrated account wholly dedicated to any portion of what is now the United States. The publication of this work by De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. It is without question the most important of the series both in terms of contemporary influence and modern historical and ethnographic value. The text describes the first British colony to be established in the New World and is here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours by John White, a member of the expedition. This work offered the first accurate accounts and eyewitness depictions of native Americans. In 1584, Sir Walter Raleigh received a ten-year charter to establish the first permanent English settlement in Virginia and over the course of the next five years four expeditions landed at Roanoke for that purpose. The second of those expeditions included mathematician and navigator Thomas Hariot and artist and later colonial governor John White. Upon his return to London, Hariot would privately publish in 1588 A Brief and True Account of the New Found Land of Virginia (extant in only 6 known copies) which detailed the explorations and discoveries during the 1585 expedition. The following year Hakluyt would include the text in his seminal Principall Navigations . In 1589, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London where he met Hakluyt, who told him of the British expeditions to Virginia and shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolours from the expedition. Hakluyt suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the work in Latin and German. John White's illustrations are among the most famous of early American images. White was the lieutenant-governor of the abortive colony, and a skilled artist. His carefully executed watercolours are remarkably accurate renderings of the Carolina Indians and their customs, costumes, rituals, hunting practices and dwellings. No other artist so carefully rendered American Indians until Karl Bodmer worked on the Missouri in the 1830s. The engravings after White are the best pictorial record of American Indians before the 19th century, while the important map within the work is the first detailed depiction of the Virginia coast and Carolina capes, showing the coast from the mouth of the Chesapeake to Wilmington, North Carolina. Arents 37; Church 140; Cumming & De Vorsey 12; European Americana 590/31; JCB I:396; Sabin 8784; Vail 7 (note). (13 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches).

      Francofurdi ad Moenum (Frankfurt am Main): [Sigmund Feyerabend] 1590. 16 Blatt, 440 Seiten, 16 Bl. Indices; 6 Bl., 456 S., 21 Bl. Blindgeprägter Schweinsledereinband der Zeit auf Holzdeckeln mit 4 Bünden, 19,5 x 12 cm.. (berieben und bestoßen, Schließen fehlen, dort kleine Fehlstücke im Leder, auch an den Kapitalen, hinterer Deckel gebrochen und geklebt, nicht ganz fachmännische Restaurierung der Verbindung der Deckel mit dem Rücken durch Leinen, Innenfalz durch Papier verstärkt, Buchblock und Seiten an den Rändern gebräunt und teilweise brüchig, teils angerändert oder kleine Einrisse, vereinzelt braunfleckig, S. 371/72 Eckabriss ohne Textverlust, teils falsch paginiert aber vollständig, kaum sichtbares Wurmloch bis Seite 4, Anstreichungen und Marginalien von zeitgenössischer Hand, im Ganzen noch ordentlich erhalten). Martin Chemnitz (Treuenbrietzen 1522 - 1586 Braunschweig) war lutherischer Theologe und Reformator. Zunächst einer der engsten Schüler von Melanchthon, überwarf er sich aber mit diesem im Jahr 1557. Er nahm am Wormser Unionskolloquium mit den Katholiken teil, bemühte sich, Streitigkeiten zwischen den protestantischen Richtungen beizulegenund war einer der bedeutendsten Theologen der nachlutherischen Zeit. 1565 schrieb Chemnitz sein Buch über das Konzil von Trient, in dem er sich in "einer sorgfältigen und für alle Zeiten epochemachenden Kritik" mit den Konzilsbeschlüssen auseinandersetzt. Die früheste Ausgabe, die wir nachweisen konnten, stammt aus dem Jahr 1574, ADB und NDB nennen 1565-73. "Examinis Concilii Tridentini" war weit verbreitet und erschien in zahlreichen Auflagen bis ins 18. Jahrhundert. Chemnitz' "theologischer Ruhm ward durch diese Schrift weit über die Grenzen Deutschlands hinaus verbreitet." Unser vorliegendes Exemplar trägt auf der Titelei den alten handschriftlichen Besitzvermerk "Sum G.C. Lauberi Diaconi Scarini Pastoris Bieberheimensis." Ein Gu. Cf. Lauber war von 1714 bis 1721 Pfarrer in Biebernheim, heute ein Stadtteil von St. Goar (Das Evangelische Rheinland, Bd. 1, S. 335f). Von diesem Pfarrer Lauber stammen höchstwahrscheinlich auch die Anstreichungen und Marginalien in diesem Buch und das handschriftliche Verzeichnis der 25 Sitzungen des Konzils auf der Rückseite des Titels. Der geprägte Schweinslederband hat auf den Deckeln Porträts, die vorne Melanchthon und hinten Luther zeigen sollen, in der Bordüre finden sich kleine Porträts, die wahrscheinlich die Apostel darstellen. "Das Konzil von Trient (Tridentinum), das von der römisch-katholischen Kirche als 19. ökumenisches Konzil gerechnet wird, fand in vier Sitzungsperioden zwischen 1545 und 1563 statt. Hauptanlass war die Notwendigkeit, auf die Forderungen und Lehren der Reformation zu reagieren." (wikipedia). - VD 16: C 2172; ADB und NDB, alles nach der online-Version.

        "Americae Pars, Nunc Virginia Dicta" " from A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Lande of Virginia (Part I of Theodore De Bry's Great Voyages)

      Frankfurt, 1590. THE FIRST MAP OF THE EARLIEST ENGLISH COLONY IN AMERICA Copper-plate engraving: 137/8" x 181/4" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed (Baltimore, 1952), n. 240; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 97-98; M.B. Pritchard & H.M. Taliaferro, Degrees of Latitude: Mapping Colonial America (Williamsburg, 2002), 61. John White's map of Virginia is, in the words of Lloyd Brown, "one of the most significant cartographical milestones in colonial North American history." Published in 1590, the map depicts the area from Chesapeake Bay to Cape Lookout in present-day North Carolina. It contains the first printed use of the name Chesapeake, "Chesepiooc Sinus," as well as depicting the positions of the Indian villages in the area, and it is adorned with the Royal Arms of England. White, an English artist who accompanied Sir Walter Raleigh on his 1685 expedition to found the first British colony in America, was among the earliest Europeans to illustrate and survey this part of the New World. His map of Virginia was the most detailed view of the area that had yet been attempted, and the earliest made available to a curious public when it was published, along with Thomas Hariot's written account, in A Briefe and True Report of the New Found Lande of Virginia (the first installment of Theodore De Bry's series "Great Voyages"). Most important, it represents the earliest printed map of the first English colony in America, and became the prototype of Virginia cartography and of depictions of the Chesapeake for almost a century. .
