Tesauro Antonino
Giovanni Domenico Tarino,, augustae Taurinorum, 1590. In f° (33,3 x 23). Cc. ff. (24), 236, (12). Titolo impresso in rosso e nero; grande stemma araldico in silografia sul titolo, numerose iniziali xilografiche. Non è presente il ritratto del T. in antiporta. Una lieve gora al titolo con timbro ottocentesco "Haereditis Pirovanae"; qualche annotazione manoscritta sparsa; leggere fioriture sporadiche, comunque bell'esemplare a pieni margini in legatura tardo Settecento mezza pelle e angoli, piatti in carta maculata; titoli su tasselli al dorso, tagli spruzzati. Prima edizione, non comune, delle Novae Decisiones del Tesauro, ideale seguito e ampliamento delle Decisiones di un'altra grande figura del diritto piemontese: Ottavio Cacherano. Come la grande maggioranza degli esemplari che passano sul mercato e nelle pubbliche biblioteche non è presente il ritratto dell'autore. L'opera contiene innumerevoli informazioni sulla società piemontese del XVI secolo, compresi contratti e pratiche economiche ma l'opera del giurista fossanese (1526-1593) che fu al servizio di Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia è sopratutto noto per la moderna visione di definire con rigore i limiti del potere del Principe nei confronti delle rappresentanze dei Senatori del Ducato. Un ampio studio approfondito sulla vita e le opere dei Tesauro (l'altro è il figlio Gaspare Antonio, anch'egli giurista) si trova in: Maria Teresa Guerra-Medici: Principi e giuristi nella prima età moderna. Antonino e Gaspare Antonio Tesauro Magistrati del Duca di Savoia. Ed. Esi, 1983. ICCU/EDIT16, n. 34998. Questa ed. non in BM-STC e A … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham ORTELIUS (1528 - 1598)
1590. "Carta della Tracia antica, che si estende da Bisanzi (Istanbul) e dallo stretto del Bosforo alla Macedonia, pubblicata da Abraham Ortleius. La regione comprende l'attuale Grecia nordorientale, la Bulgaria meridionale e la Turchia nord-occidentale. Questa mappa appartiene a una serie di carte storiche conosciute come il ""Parergon Theatri"" che apparve dal 1579 in poi, a volte come una pubblicazione separata e talvolta incorporato nel Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. La mappa si basa sulla mappa di Gastaldi dell'Europa sudorientale e sulle informazioni di numerose fonti antiche, in particolare Herodoto, Plinio, Strabo, Appiano, Virgilio, Plutarco e Sidonius. Incisione in rame, finamente colorata a mano, in ottimo stao di conservazione." Fine map of ancient Thrace, extending from Byzantium (Istanbul) and the Bosphorus Straits to Macedonia, published by Abraham Ortleius. This map belongs to a serie of historical maps known as the Parergon Theatri which appeared from 1579 onwards, sometimes as a separate publication and sometimes incorporated in the Theatrum. This finely engraved map shows Thrace, present-day north eastern Greece, southern Bulgaria, and northwest Turkey, and identifies main settlements with their original latinised names. The map is based on Gastaldi's 1560 map of South East Europe, and on information from numerous ancient sources, specifically Herodotus, Plinius, Strabo, Appianus, Virgilius, Plutarchus, and Sidonius. Portions of the Black Sea, Sea of Marmara, and Thrakikon Pelagos, all stipple engraved and fully colored, make this a very handsome map. Van den B … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura in mz.pelle moderna con piatti marmorizzati ottocenteschi. Il volume ha subito pesanti e non ortodossi restauri, che tuttavia ne garantiscono la completezza e la piena fruibilità. In dettaglio le prime quattro carte presentano antichi rinforzi cartacei ai margini, mentre le carte D, D2, T6, V, V2, V3 E V4 sono unite in riproduzione fotostatica su carta vecchia. Antiche chiose manoscritte. Al frontespizio stemma di Ravenna inciso in cornice decorativa. Cartigli e capilettera ornamentali. Al verso della carta T5 è impressa a piena pagina la marca tipografica degli stampatori Pietro e Camillo Giovannelli in cornice rettangolare decorata: una stella cometa con sette piccole stelle tra le punte, con il motto in festone "Inter omnes". La presente edizione originale degli Statuti della città di Ravenna si deve alle cure del giureconsulto Girolamo Ruggini, che fu ambasciatore del Governo prima a Bologna e poi a Roma presso Paolo III e Giulio III. Così Serafino Pasolini in "Huomini illustri di Ravenna antica" (pg.97): "Riformò le nostre leggi Municipali in eloquente, e peritissimo stile, le quali nell'anno 1590 furono date in luce da Fabbio Ruggini. Così mirabili riuscirono nelle materie legali Agostino Ruggini suo fratello, e Gio.

LIBRO NOVO DI ABACO.
Asti, appresso Bartholomeo Manzolino, 1590. In-8ø; 142 pp., 1 c. (bianca). Marca tipografica al fontespizio, testatine e capilettera decorati, qualche figura geometrica nel testo. Legatura settecentesca in tutto cartoncino alla rustica. Un leggero alone marginale e qualche piccola macchia ma buon esemplare. Edizione sconosciuta stampata ad Asti di questo nuovo adattamento di un popolare manuale per far di conto indirizzato ai mercanti, notevole per le testimonianze di cultura economica, dagli usi della partita doppia agli scambi valutari sul territorio italiano. Le stampe astigiane sono in s‚ rare, ma in tutto eccezionali risultano quelle estranee all'ambito religioso di commissione diocesana. I Manzolino, con Bonaventura, Antonio e Stefano, furono stampatori attivi a Torino da fine Cinquento a tutto il secolo successivo. Prima di quest'edizione, fecero pubblicare ad Asti solamente un'orazione funebre (1594), avvalendosi dei torchi di Virgilio Giangrandi, che nel 1588 aveva riportato in citt... l'arte tipografica con il fratelo Giovanni, su invito del vescovo Francesco Panigarola. Manca a Smith, a Riccardi, a Cerboni e alla Catalogazione delle cinquecentine piemontesi della Bersano Begey.

Münster Sebastian (1489 - 1552) Basel
Artist: Münster Sebastian ca ; issued in: Basle; date: ca1590. - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 29 x 16; - description: Map shows the city of Antwerp, on reverse map shows the coat of arm of Gellern; - vita of the artist: Sebastian Münster (1488 ? 1552) belongs to the very important Comographers of the Renaicance. He issued his first famous Cosmographia in 1544 with 24 double paged maps with German description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts , some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe. His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias.

Adrichem, van Christian Kruik (1533 - 1585)
Artist: Adrichem van Christian Kruik ca ; issued in: Cologne; date: ca1590 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 36 x 39,5; - description: Decorative and rare map of the lands granted to the Tribes of Zabulon or Zebulun, Issachar or Isachar and the western half of the tribe of Manasseh at the time of Joshua's division of the Twelve Tribes. The map shows the Sea of Galilee westward to the Mediterranean. Many Biblical illustrations include a dramatic scene where Jonas is being cast from a sailing ship into the open maw of the awaiting whale. This map, among the most attractive of the series, shows the Sea of Galilee in full with several scenes from the life of Jesus, including the walking on water episode, Jesus preaching from a boat, and others.This map is the fourth of ten maps of the Holy Land prepared by Christian van Adrichem for publication in his Theatrum Terrae Sanctae. Adrichem's maps for the Theatrum were made between 1580 and 1585, but were published posthumously by his associate, Gerardis Brunius of Koln, in 1590. The publication went through several later editions and served as a basis for most subsequent maps of the Holy Land well into the 18th century. ; - vita of the artist: Christian van Adrichem (1533- 1585) was born in Delft. He was ordained in 1566, and was Director of the Convent of St. Barbara in Delft before being expelled by the storm of the Reformation. His works are " Vita Jesu Christi" (Antwerp, 1578) and Theatrum Terrae Sanctae et Biblicarum Historiarum (Cologne, 1590). This last wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Adrichem (a.k.a. Adrichom), Christiaan van.
[colophon: Coloniae Agrippinae: Officina Birckmannica, sumptibus Arnoldi Mylij, 1590]. Folio (38.5 cm; 15.125"). [6] ff., 286 pp., [15] ff.; [12] fold. or double-page engr. maps. Wonderfully detailed study of the Holy Land. Adrichem (1533–85) was a Delft-born priest (a.k.a., Christianus Crucius) who wrote several works on Jerusalem and the Holy Land. His important and influential Theatrum Terrae Sanctae is famous for its engraved maps, but because he used contemporary sources that are now lost, his text is justly sought for its descriptions of Palestine and the antiquities of Jerusalem as these were to be known during the last half of the 16th century.    This is universally held to be the first edition, with subsequent editions in 1593, 1600, 1613, 1628, and 1682, and it was translated into several languages, including English. Clouding the bibliographic record however are poorly catalogued copies at Harvard and the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek: A copy at Harvard purports to have been printed in 1589, but with no indication of where or by whom. The Bayerische Staatsbibliothek copy is variously reported as having been printed in Köln in 1582 (Index Aurel.) and 1585 (its OPAC and WorldCat). We believe the Harvard and Bayerische Staatsbibliothek copies to be erroneously catalogued, leading to these questionable dates of production.    The volume here begins with an engraved allegorical title-page, has woodcut initials and tailpieces, and bears => 12 folding or double-page engraved maps filled with small details, including sea monsters. The text, printed in roman type in d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham ORTELIUS (1528 - 1598)
1590. Bella e decorativa carta storica centrata sul Mar Nero tratta dalla rara edizione del Parergon, il primo atlante storico mai pubblicato. Il Parergon fu inizialmente concepito dall'Ortelius come appendice del suo Theatrum Orbis Terrarum ma visto il notevole successo di queste carte storiche divenne in seguito un lavoro indipendente e rimase la fonte principale di tutti i lavori simili per tutto il XVII secolo. A differenza delle carte del mondo conosciuto che vennero disegnate secondo molteplici fonti, le mappe del Parergon, sono opera originale dell'Ortelius stesso ed in tutte queste curiose carte traspare l'amore e la passione dell'Ortelius (studioso del mondo antico, antiquario ed instancabile visitatore di luoghi di rovine e siti archeologici) per la storia degli antichi. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Detailed engraved map of the Black Sea by Abraham Ortelius. Covering the Black Sea with Ukraine, Crimea, and the surrounding countries. With two Renaissance cartouches. This map belongs to a serie of historical maps known as the Parergon Theatri which appeared from 1579 onwards, sometimes as a separate publication and sometimes incorporated in the Theatrum. Copperplate, with fine later hand colour, very good condition. Van Den Broeck 213; Zacharakis #1623.

Vincenzo Maria CORONELLI (Ravenna 1650 - Venezia 1718)
1590. Affascinante mappa dell'Oceano Atlantico e dei litorali dell'America, dell'Europa e dell'Africa realizzata da Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, uno dei più importanti mappatori del fine del XVII secolo. La mappa fornisce un dettagliato ritratto delle coste atlantiche dell'America, accreditando la scoperta iniziale dell'America ad Antonio Zeno di Venezia. La pubblicazione della mappa coincideva con un periodo in cui la credibilità della supposta scoperta di Zeno era assai accreditata, dopo i suoi primi rapporti oltre 100 anni prima. Le coste americane presentano numerosi dettagli, con più di 100 nomi di località e decine di fiumi costieri. Mappa in condizioni molto buone, con con colore originale. Fascinating chart of the Atlantic Ocean and the contigous coastlines of America, Europe and Africa, by Vincenzo Maria Coronelli, one of the most important map makers of the late 17th Century. The map provides a detailed treatment of the Atlantic Coastlines of America, crediting the intial discovery of America to Antonio Zeno of Venice. The publication of the map coincided with a period where the credibility of Zeno's supposed discovery was at a high point, following its earliest reports over 100 years earlier. The coastal features of America are identified in fine detail, with more than 100 place names identified and dozens of coastal rivers shown. Copperplate with fine original colour, very good condition. Burden 679.

- Map : 'Anjou per Gerardum Mercatorem '. (Map of Anjou.) Map of Anjou in France. Copper engraving by Gerard Mercator. Copperplate engraving on verge type hand laid paper with watermark. Description: Published in Amsterdam by Mercator / Hondius ca. 1600.Artists and Engravers: Mercator was born in Rupelmonde in Flanders and studied in Louvain under Gemma Frisius, Dutch writer, astronomer and mathematician. The excellence of his work brought him the patronage of Charles V, but in spite of his favor with the Emperor he was caught up in the persecution of Lutheran protestants and charged with heresy, fortunately without serious consequences. No doubt the fear of further persecution influenced his move in 1552 to Duisburg, where he continued the production of maps, globes and instruments. Mercator's sons and grandsons, were all cartographers and made their contributions in various ways to his atlas. Rumold, in particular, was responsible for the complete edition in 1595. The map plates were bought in 1604 by Jodocus Hondius who, with his sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, published enlarged editions which dominated the map market for the following twenty to thirty years. Condition: Fine; general age related toning; some light staining from handling. Middle fold a bit separated, backed, but barely visible. A few false fold lines, flattened. Storage location: B17-31 The overall size is ca. 20.7 x 15.9 inch. The image size is ca. 18.3 x 13.8 inch. The overall size is ca. 52.5 x 40.5 cm. The image size is ca. 46.5 x 35 cm.

An unrecorded issue (1 of at least 7) of a rare and important 1590 Bible edition, the corrected "deux aes" Bible, based on the first edition of 1562 (New Testament 1559), which remained the standard Dutch Reformed Bible until the official Dutch States translation, published in 1637. It was translated from Luther's German by Godfried van Wingen (the New Testament by Johannes Dyrkinus), after comparison with several other versions, and includes many notes, some also taken from Luther and some by Augustin Marlorat, as well as Petrus Danthenus's metric psalms with music notes. The Amsterdam bookseller Laurens Jacobsz. initiated the publication of the present corrected text of the "deus aes" Bible and the maps to accompany it, publishing the folio edition with maps himself, but sharing the quarto edition with four other publishers. Although Jacobsz.'s name does not appear in the present issue, he was originally trained as a binder, operated his shop at the sign of the gold-tooled Bible and Fontaine Verwey gives evidence to link him with the panel stamp on the present binding.

Ca.1590-1610. Größe ca. 6 x 7,5 cm. Die Ansichten sind in sehr gutem Zustand und auf 2 größeren Kartonblättern montiert. Die Herkunft der Drucke ist nicht geklärt. Der berühmte Antiquar H.P.Kraus verkaufte diese Probedrucke in den 1980er Jahren. Es sind scheinbar Probedrucke, flämischer oder holländischer Herkunft, die für eine nicht realisierte große Wandkarte hergestellt wurden. The collection of 25 views includes vignettes of:in the Americas: Havana, Potosí (Bolivia) and Cusco; in Europe: Bergen (Norway), Stockholm, Antwerp and Pozzuoli (Italy); in Africa: Ceuta (Iberian enclave in Morocco), Tangiers, Salé (Morocco), Azammour (Morocco), Tunis, Mombasa, Elmina Castle (Ghana), Ascension Island and the island of St. Helena; in Asia: Aden (Yemen), Diu (India), Goa (India), Kozhikode (India), Kannur (India), Ternate (Maluku Islands, Indonesia), Tidore (Maluku Islands, Indonesia), and finally, a view of an Encampment of Tartar Warriors. The views within the roundels were generally predicated on the most authoritative recent sources. Many of the views are based on those published within the first four volumes of Georg Braun (author) & Frans Hogenberg?s (engraver) Civitates Orbis Terrarum (6 vols, 1572 ? 1618), the first great ?town book?, featuring bird?s eye views of cities in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. Inspired by Ortelius?s ground-breaking world atlas Theatrum Orbis Terraum (1570), which featured all of the world?s known regions in detail, this monumental endeavour featured 546 views and maps of cities.
