        Relatione del Reame di Congo et delle Circonvicine contrade, Tratta dalli Scritti & ragionamenti di Odoardo Lopez Portoghese Con dißegni vari di Geografia di piante, d’habiti, d’animali, & altro

      1591 - The best work written on Africa, and a landmark of travel literature, during the Age of Discovery. 1591. Rome. Bartolomeo Grassi. In 4to (225 mm x 165 mm). 8 pp. including engraved frontispiece + 82 + 1 ff. + 8 engraved + 2 folding maps. Elegant 20th century calf, double gilt fillet to boards, raised bands to spine, tooled and lettered in gilt. Internally very good, edges stained red, with good margins, the maps joined –as usual-, with fold marks, Congo with long closed tear and a little stained at gutter, larger map of Africa also shows light damp at gutter, but overall both good with the usual condition issues. 30,000 $ First edition; rarely found complete with the important folding maps and plates, of this landmark of travel literature: the eye-witness account of Odoardo Lopes’s 6 years in the Kingdom of the Kongo, 1578-84. The present work provided by far the most detailed knowledge of the African interior to date, as reflected both in its ethnographic text and illustrations and its highly important maps, which “completely chang[ed] the traditional Ptolemaic concept” of the Dark Continent, recording a level of knowledge of the interior which would not be surpassed until the expeditions of Stanley et al. The Italian adventurer Pigafetta encountered Odoardo Lopes during his stay in Rome from 1588-9, when Lopes was presenting a report of his travels to the Pope. Pigafetta prepared the present work in Italian as a faithful transcription of Lopes’ account, which chronicles his remarkable travels through the Kongo and down to Angola – probably the first Europeans to penetrate so deeply into the African interior. The narrative is rich in ethnographic detail, from the cannibalistic practices of the Azichi to native canoe construction to the bizarre flora and fauna Lopes encounters. The inhabitants of the Kongo, however, were clearly the most fascinating aspect of his travels, and 6 of the 8 double-page engraved plates depict native Congolese: in everyday dress; armed for battle; and traveling by hammock or by sedan. Plate 5 shows the dress of three classes of women in the Kongo: a noblewoman, a plebian, and a slave. The relations between tribes and neighboring kingdoms are also discussed, as is indigenous trade – including in slaves. Speaking of the vast Slave Market in Lunda (Angola), Lopes remarks that the Portuguese already purchase some 5,000 slaves a year; his narrative is filled with references to indigenous slavery and most of the plates depict a nobleman accompanied by his ‘servants’. Lopes was evidently deeply impressed with the profits to be made in this business, and it was his own “detailed plan” for an African-American slave trade which finally inspired the mass Portuguese-lead export of African slaves to the Spanish colonies of the New World (cf Hanke, p. 8). A remarkable document of the early exploration of the African continent, by far the most accurate written up to date, Pigafetta’s book is very rarely found complete, most often lacking the two large maps depicting the entire continent (minus West Africa) and a detailed view of the Kongo and Angola. These strikingly detailed maps are not only surprisingly accurate, but also consciously ignore the traditional Ptolemaic depiction of the African interior. “The map is thus highly important as well as rare, an important landmark in the historical cartography of the Nile water basin, completely changing the traditional Ptolemaic concept.” (Norwich, p 24). Pigafetta’s maps would in fact become the standard model for maps of the continent through to the end of the 17th century. “Recent work has shown that the late sixteenth century also saw a much more radical reinterpretation of the interior [of Africa], first published cartographically in Filippo Pigafetta’s Tavola generale dell’Africa in 1591 ” (Norwich’s Maps of Africa, p. xviii). “This work became an important source on the Congo and was frequently used by later writers and mapmakers What is probably [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Evangelium Sanctum Domini nostri Jesu Christi conscriptum a quatuor evangelistis sanctis, id est, Matthaeo, Marco, Luca, et Johanne.

      Rome, in typographia Medicea, MDXCI (1591), - in-folio, pp. 9-462, (1 contenente avviso e colophon); leg. leggermente posteriore p. perg. molle, tit. ms. al dorso (rifatto ). Splendida edizione figurata del primo evangelario in lingua araba con traduzione interlineare latina, composta da Antonius Sionita, (l'anno precedente era stata impressa un'edizione con il solo testo arabo). La Bibbia si presenta adorna di 149 finissime silografie a 1/3 di pagina (molte di queste monogrammate ''LP'' per Luca Pennis o Leonardo Parasole), tratte dai significativi disegni di Antonio Tempesta. Dopo l'ediz. del 1591 fu impressa quella del 1619, la quale differisce dalla prima per l'aggiunta di 8 pp., contenenti il titolo e la prefazione. Artefice principale della Typographia Medicea fu l'orientalista G.B. Raimondi, che ne divenne più tardi proprietario; dopo la morte nel 1614, la tipografia interruppe l'attività e fu trasportata a Firenze. Con molta probabilità, i fondi vennero poi acquistati da Cesare Malanimeus, il quale rimise in commercio le copie invendute dell'opera aggiungendovi una prefazione ''lectori philarabico'' con data 1774. Buon esemplare a pieni margini, ben conservato anche se con qualche foglio uniformemente brunito. Brunet II, 1122-23. Olschki Choix, 13955. Graesse II, 531: ''Les évangiles sont divisés par sections à la manière de l'église orientale, mais non pas en chapitres ni en versets. Il existe trois sortes d'exemplaires qui sont toutes en réalité de la date de 1591.'' [Attributes: Hard Cover]

And he the man whom nature self had made To mock herself, and truth to imitate With kindly counter under mimick shade, Our pleasant Willy, ah, is dead of late, With whom all joy and jolly merriment Is also dreaded and in dolour drent." "The Teares of the Muses" p.8 The reference is accepted to be the earliest notice by name of the immortal bard. STC 23078; ESTC S111266; Pforzheimer 968

      Ohne Druckort (Wittemberg) 1591; 32 unnummerierte Seiten mit Titelholzschnitt; neuerer Pergament-Einband aus altem handgeschriebenem Manuskript des 15.

Die Ander/ Über das ander Capitel des Propheten Joels/ Daraus genommen ist ein Christliche vermanung zu wahrer Buss und eiferigem Gebet wider den Türcken/ Zu diesen gefehrlichen Leufften gantz nötig und nützlich zu lesen. Zu Wittenberg gehalten. 36 Blätter; Wittenberg, M. Simon Grönenberg 1593; Zwei seltene und kulturgeschichtlich wichtige Drucke des 16. Jahrhundert. Das \"Christliche Bedencken\" Leysers, ein Lutheraner, beinhaltet ein Festhalten an der Traditon des Exorzismus bei der Taufe, gleichwohl eine gemilderte Form angestrebt wird, und dem \"Bepstischen Zeuber Exorcismum\" abgeschworen wird. Eine völlige Abschaffung wird in diesem Frühstadium der evangelischen Kirche aber noch nicht toleriert. Bei den \"Zwo Christlichen Predigten\" ist vorallem die zweite interessant, die aktuell auf die 1593 wieder aufbrechenden Türkenkriege Bezug nimmt und das Inferno einer Türkenherrschaft in Europa anprangert. Nicht zuletzt durch solche Predigten gelang es den Mitteleuropäischen Staaten, sich gegen die Türken zu solidarisieren und ihnen den Einbruch nach Europa zu verwehren. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        Exercitationes philosophicæ quibus universa fere discutitur philosophia theoretica, et plurima ac præcipua Peripateticorum dogmata evertuntur ... cum gemino indice.[Leyden]: in bibliopolio Commeliniano sumptibus viduae Joannis Comelini, 1620.

      First edition, extremely rare, of one of the earliest modern works on atomism. "Gorlaeus is counted among the founders of modern atomism, which he proposed as an alternative to Aristotelian matter theory. Because of his notion of atomic compounds, he is also regarded as a contributor to the evolution of chemistry" (DSB). "When David Gorlaeus (1591-1612) passed away at 21 years of age, he left behind two highly innovative manuscripts. Once they were published [as the present work, and as <i>Idea physicae</i> (1610), his work had a remarkable impact on the evolution of seventeenth-century thought. However, as his identity was unknown, divergent interpretations of their meaning quickly sprang up. Seventeenth-century readers understood him as an anti-Aristotelian thinker and as a precursor of Descartes. Twentieth-century historians depicted him as an atomist, natural scientist and even as a chemist. And yet, when Gorlaeus died, he was a beginning student in theology. His thought must in fact be placed at the intersection between philosophy, the nascent natural sciences, and theology" (Lüthy). This is a very rare book. In his review of Lüthy's book in 2012, Henri Krop wrote: "until now Gorlaeus's life and ideas have remained basically unknown because both his elaborate <i>Exercitationes philosophicae</i> and his <i>Idea physicae</i> are extremely rare and copies were unavailable in Dutch public libraries. (However since 1986 the libraries of both Leiden and Leeuwarden have acquired copies of the former.)" We have been unable to locate any copies in auction records.<br/><br/> "Gorlaeus's atomism, which took center stage in his <i>Idea physicae</i>, is however more fully embedded in the <i>Exercitationes philosophicae</i>. There, philosophy is defined as "the naked knowledge of entities" and thus identified with ontology. Each discipline, wrote Gorlaeus, tackles one type of entity, whereby physics deals with natural entities. His ontology distinguishes between self-subsisting entities (<i>entia per se</i>), which are defined as numerically unique, fully existing, unchanging, and indivisible, and the accidental compositions (<i>entia per accidens</i>) that are brought about when several <i>entia per se</i> gather. This view of reality is essentially atomistic, although primarily in a metaphysical sense. By denying universals and allowing only for individuals, it is also heavily indebted to medieval nominalism.. 8vo (154 x 89 mm), pp. [xxviii], 352.

With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors. The text of the Brevis narratio... describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours by a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of the Old World, this work presented the first accurate eyewitness depiction and account of Native Americans. In the mid-1560s two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Hugenot settlement in Florida. Among those accompanying Laudonnière was Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues: born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, he was appointed artist to the expedition which sailed in April 1564. Arguably the first western artist to visit the New World, Le Moyne recorded the scenery of Florida and the lives of the Timucua Indians in great detail, as well as charting the coastline of Florida and much of present-day South Carolina. Unfortunately, the nascent French colony was seen as a threat by the Spanish, the dominant European power in the region, and in September 1565 a force led by Pedro Menendez massacred the French colonists at Fort Caroline. Le Moyne and several others, however, made a miraculous escape. The story of their struggles was not published until 1588, when, at the instigation of Richard Hakluyt, Laudonnière's journal was published in Paris. Later that year, master engraver and publisher Theodor De Bry traveled to London, and met with Le Moyne in an unsuccessful attempt to obtain illustrations of the region to accompany a new edition of Laudonnière's journal. Following Le Moyne's death the following year, De Bry returned to London and purchased the watercolours from his widow. It was on this trip to London that De Bry met Hakluyt, who informed him of the British expeditions to Virginia, shared with him both Hariot's journal and White's watercolours from the expedition and suggested the publication of a series of illustrated voyages to America, beginning with Hariot/White and Laudonnière/Le Moyne. De Bry returned to Frankfurt and in 1590 published the former in Latin, German, French and English; the following year he published the latter in Latin and German, presumably having found that there was only a small market for the other languages. Le Moyne's extraordinary illustrations of the Florida Indians, which appear on forty-two leaves of this work in their first published form, rank with those of John White as the best visual record of American Indians before the 19th century. They show all aspects of Indian life, including settlements, ceremonies, wars, agriculture, hunting, and preparation of food. They also show scenes of the French settlement and their involvement with the Indians. These images were widely copied for centuries, and many later supposedly original illustrations of American Indians are actually copies of Le Moyne's illustrations. A full list of the plates appears in Church. The map, which appeared for the first time with this text, is one of the most elaborate of the Florida peninsula to appear in the 16th century, giving the names assigned by the French and Spanish. Cumming provides an elaborate description, and John Matthew Baxter describes it as "…the most remarkable and important map, which has been preserved from the sixteenth century maps, of that part of the East Coast which lies between Cape Hatteras and Cape Florida … [It is] the first French map to show Florida … [and is] considered the most important map of Florida." Some copies of this first Latin edition include a leaf bound after the last of the plates which includes a colophon with the same wording as the final colophon -- it is not present in this copy, but Sabin notes that it is only found in "some copies."

        [Le Moyne's Florida] Der Ander Theyl der Newlich erfundenen Landtschafft Americæ

      Frankfurt: bey Johann Feyerabendt, 1591. Folio. (13 x 9 inches). Title pages to both the text and the plates with pasted on paper panels bearing the titles, the title page to the text with an additional small slip with the publishing details in German, all within an engraved surround (as issued), engraved arms on dedication leaf, final blank O6. 1 folding engraved map [Burden 79], 43 half-page engraved illustrations (42 after Le Moyne), 7 woodcut headpieces, all finely hand coloured by a contemporary hand. Expertly bound to style in 18th-century French red morocco, covers with triple gilt fillet border, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt hatching, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration of small tools around a central flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers, red stained edges A rare contemporary hand-coloured copy of the De Bry first edition in German of Le Moyne's Florida: the first eyewitness pictorial record of the region. Copies with contemporary hand-colouring are of the utmost rarity and were no doubt intended for the highest echelons of society, either as commissions or gifts. With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors.

Sabin writes that according to the Russian prince Serge Sobolewski, the noted collector of De Bry whose voluminous collection was purchased by James Lenox and is now at the New York Public Library, the German editions were "made with more care and better typographical arrangement than the Latin." In addition, the German-language editions of Le Moyne are considerably more scarce than the Latin. The contemporary hand colouring of this copy is extraordinary and of the utmost rarity. Le Moyne's Florida is a monument of early Americana and among the earliest and greatest of all illustrated works depicting Native Americans in the United States. Cf. Brunet I, 1320; Burden Mapping of North America 79; Church 179; Cumming & De Vorsey 14; cf. Sabin 8784; cf. Schwartz & Ehrenberg pp.64-7.

        Hand Colored Engraving from a German Language Edition of Le Moyne's Brevis narratio [ca. 1591 from De Bry's "Grand Voyages to the Americas"]: Sacrifice of the first-born, plate XXXIV

      1591. Very Good Condition. A single sheet from an early German edition of Le Moyne, likely the first German edition published in 1591, the year after the Latin. The engraving depicts the (almost certainly spurious) sacrifice of the first born son that Laudonnière (René Goulaine de Laudonnière c. 1529-1574) claimed to have witnessed among the indigenous people of Florida. Fine contemporary or early hand coloring, a few minor stains, browning, etc, worming in the inner margin, old paper repairs to the bottom left and right with loss of text. The ceremony depicts the mother morning in front of a tree stump while other women dance and the child is offered up to the king - all as described by Laudonnière. Size: Folio. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Americana; Exploration. Inventory No: 045842.

      Bugnion-Secrétan, La Mère Angélique Arnauld; Gognet, La Mère Angélique et Saint-François Sales; Asahina, 'Les deux Angelique de Port Royal', pp. 157-170; DBF II, p. 1061-1071. First edition of the biography of the famous abbess and reformer of Port-Royal, Mother Angélique de Sainte Magdelaine Arnauld (1591-1661) and notes on the history of Port-Royal, Maubuisson and other monasteries by her niece Angélique de Saint Jean Arnauld d'Andilly (1624-1684). Together with notes on her own life and the events at Port-Royal during the years she was abbess there. Angélique de Sainte Magdelaine Arnauld is famous for having reformed the Abbey of Port-Royal and other Cistercian abbeys such as Maubuisson in such a way that her monastery, of which she was abbess from an early age on, could become the centre of Jansenism in France. The many difficulties and even prosecutions which were the result of these reforms, are described in a very lively manner. These accounts form a very important source for the history of Port-Royal, frequently cited by the historiographer of the reform movement of Port-Royal, Sainte-Beuve. Blaise Pascal was one of her admirers.With an owner's inscription (Petri Dupré, 1770) and a library stamp of the Paters Assumptionists (Heide Huis) at Nijmegen. A good copy.

Size: 35 x 46cm., little brownish Verso text: Latin From: Speculum Orbis Terrae. Antwerpen, G. De Jode, 1593. (Van der Krogt 3, 2:02) "In 1578 Gerard de Jode published his Speculum Orbis Terrarum, an atlas aimed at competing with the Theatrum of Ortelius. However, the latter had first been issued in 1570 and had already built a commanding market presence, and so despite de Jode's longer standing reputation the atlas did not sell very well. Only a dozen or so examples have survived. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The rare editio princeps of the Arabic translation of the New Testament (bilingual with text in both Latin and Arabic), beautifully illustrated with 149 woodcut illustrations in the text. This work constitutes the very first printing by the Typographia Medicea-press, a printing-house set up by Pope Gregor XIII and Cardinal Ferdinando de 'Medici in order to promote and distribute Christian scriptures to the East and the book is considered the first successful printing of Arabic. Two issues of the work were printed, presumably simultaneously: "The more common is the Arabic-only text, which was printed in an edition of 4,000. [The present copy] is one of 3,000 printed with interlinear text in Arabic and Latin" (Duke University Magazine). The Arab-only edition states 1590 on the title-page "but 1591 in the subscription: to some of the copies is annexed a Latin translation" (Michaelis, "Introduction to the New Testament"). "Its first great Arabic publication was this edition of the Gospels, bearing the date 1590 on the title page, and 1591 at the end. Two versions appeared, one solely in Arabic and one with an interlinear Latin translation." (Library of Congress). Also British Library records this as "Editio princeps of the Gospels in Arabic" (OCLC: 6048476)Brunet lists that some of the bilingual copies were published with a preliminary leaf stating: "Sanctum Dei evangelium arab.-lat.". There are, however, no known copies with this alleged half-title and it was most like never published (OCLC: 505274823).The work was edited by Giovanni Battista Raimondi (1536-1614), a renowned Orientalist and professor of mathematics at the College of the Sapienza in Rome. Raimondi had travelled extensively in the Middle East and had thorough knowledge of Arabic, Armenian, Syrian and Hebrew. He is, however, most famous for being the editor at the Typographia Medicea-press and together with French engraver Robert Granjon (who also created the Arabic typography set in the present work) "bettered all previous attempts [to print in Arabic] in Europe, and would remain unsurpassed long after the press had closed. (Boogert, "Medici Oriental Press, Rome 1584-1614")"Antonio Tempesta, the engraver (cut bý Leonardo Parasole), had studied under Santi di Tito and Joannes Stradanus at the Accademia del Disegno in Florence (later working with Stradanus and Vasari on the interior decoration of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence), before travelling to Rome, where he executed various commissions, including frescos for Pope Gregory XIII in the Vatican and decorations for the Villa Farnese. Simultaneously with his frescos and panel paintings, he executed a large number of engravings. The illustrations for the present work are remarkable examples of Tempesta's work, noteworthy for their clear composition and narrative of the episodes depicted. Despite the quality of the prints made, the press never became an economic success and it went bankrupt in 1610. Scholars have noticed that presenting a work with beautiful scriptural illustrations, as the present, to Arabic-speaking Muslims, when Islam forbids religious illustration, showed little understanding of the culture and almost certainly hindered Pope Gregory XIII's missionary efforts."The press was not only an intellectual enterprise; it was also a commercial one. Raimondi clearly hoped to sell his books in the East, rather than the West, because the selection of the works he produced showed little consideration with the type of material European scholars in this period needed. While the works failed to sell in the Ottoman Empire, however, they did significantly stimulate the study of the Middle East in Europe.Ferdinando de' Medici had ordered Raimondi to print 'all available Arabic books on permissible human sciences which had no religious content in order to introduce the art of printing to the Mohamedan community.' Only more than a century after the Medici Press in Rome had closed, did it finally have the envisaged impact in the Levant; Ibrahim Müteferrika, the first Muslim printer, referring to it in his plea to the sultan to allow him to open his own printing house at Istanbul, which happened in 1729." (Boogert, "Medici Oriental Press, Rome 1584-1614").This copy was bought by Alessio Dra Segetto in Aleppo, Syria in 1871 and has five Waqf stamp.

Title page loose. A9 loose. Foxing throughout. Ink stains to top margin of ~50 pages. Minor damp stain to inside corner. Final volume of Huber?s first edition, Opera of Paracelsus, printed from 1589 - 1591. Paracelsus was an important Renaissance physician, alchemist, astrologer, and occultist. He is credited with being the founder of the disciple of toxicology. Paracelsus is best known for his independence of thought and his embrace of observation rather than slavish acceptance of old masters (Galen, Avicenna, Aristotle) of medicine. While deeply entrenched in the occult, Paracelsus?s great contribution was the liberation of medicine from the limitations of theology. This helped establish a strongly secular and ultimately modern scientific worldview. The Astronomia Magna is Paracelsus's bold attempt to bring together his philosophical, magical and theological ideas into one great synthesis and can be called Paracelsus's attempt at an early philosophy of science, which could have been groundbreaking for the 16th century, if it would have been received earlier. The Archidoxis Magica is in three parts: (trans) The Secrets of Alchemy, Of Occult Philosophy, Of the Mysteries of the Signes of the Zodiack, and details the medicial uses of the zodiac and relations of the planets as well as the abuse of such knowledge by witchcraft and necromancy. An important early medical work of the use of magic for curing disease. C. Webster, Paracelsus confronts the saints: miracles, healing and the secularization of magic.
