REUSNER, Nicolaus.
Strasbourg, Bernard Jobin, 1590. With Jobin's woodcut printer's mark on title, large woodcut coat-of-arms of the dedicatee, King Frederick II of Denmark (1534-1588), and 100 fine woodcut portraits by Christoph Murer (2 by Tobias Stimmer). Each page with woodcut frame. (8) leaves, 428 pp., (8) leaves. Small 8vo. Mod. vellum, edges gilt and gauffered. Strasbourg, Bernard Jobin, 1590. An outstanding German woodcut book with a fine collection of portraits after Christoph Murer (1558-1614), in its second Latin edition. It is an iconographic source for 16th-century German and Swiss humanism, scholarship, reformation, medicine, natural history, and music, containing many uncommon portraits. Among those appearing in the book are Apianus, Brant, Copernicus, Paracelsus, Bullinger, Albertus Magnus, Zwingli, Oecolampadius, Hus, Gesner, Vesalius, Hutten, Luther, Savonorola, Schwenckfeld, Münster, Amerbach, Oporinus, Melanchthon, and others of equal note. Andresen's attribution of these portraits to Stimmer has been refuted, not only on stylistic grounds - Stimmer had been dead for three years when they were first published (1587); only the portraits of Mathias Flaccius Illyricus and Paracelsus are after Stimmer. - Old. ms. ownership entry on title, very light browning. - VD 16 R 1428; Adams R-410; STC (German) 734; Fairfax Murray 362; Stimmer catalogue (Basel), no. 119; Muller, Bibl. strasbourgeoise III, p. 596, no. 211; cf.

De Bry, Theodore (1528 - 1598) and John White (1550 - 1606)
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 depictio … [Click Below for Full Description]
