[Biblia arabico-latina - Evangelium].
1591. Folio (260 x 366 mm). (4), 9-462, (2) pp. Title page printed in red and black, with the Medici arms. With 149 text woodcuts by L. N. Parassole after Antonio Tempesta. Contemporary Italian flexible boards with ms. title to spine. The rare first re-issue, with new preliminary matter only, of the first Gospel printing in the interlinear Arabic and Latin version, prepared at the same time and printed by the same press as the first Arabic-only Gospel. These were the first works ever produced by Ferdinando de' Medici's "Medicea" press, founded by Pope Gregory XIII to spread the word of Christ in the Orient. Supervised by the able scholar Giovambattista Raimondi (1536-1614), its strength lay in oriental, especially Arabic, printing. After Raimondi's death, the press relocated to Florence. - The Arabic text is printed in Robert Granjon's famous large fount, generally considered the first satisfactory Arabic printing type; as all early printed editions of the Arabic Gospels, it is based on the Alexandrian Vulgate (cf. Darlow/M. 1636). The Latin version is by Leonardo Sionita. As issued in 1591, the work began with page 9, without a title page or any preliminary matter at all: "the intended prefatory matter was apparently never published" (Darlow/M.). The 1619 re-issue contains 4 pages of preliminary matter (title page and a note "typographus lectori"); there exist copies with two additional leaves of dedications not present here. Another re-issue, much more common, was released in 1774. - Occasional browning; a good, untrimmed and hence wide-margined copy in its original tempo … [Click Below for Full Description]

De Bry, Theodor.
1591. Folio. Bound in 9 uniform magnificent late 19th century full green morocco bindings with gilt centrepieces, gilt lines to edges of boards and gilt line-frames to inside of boards. All edges gilt and all volumes signed W. Pratt. A lovely set, exquisitely and uniformly bound, magnificently restored in the most gentle and respectful of manners, of the entire original run of De Bry's "Great American Voyages" (supplied by extra variant copies of volumes IV and VIII), the magnificent work that is responsible for shaping the European image of the New World, inventing it in the minds of the masses. Presenting a broad view of European conquests in America and the first contact with the American Indians, De Bry's Great American Voyages represents the first attempt to introduce in Europe - and on a large scale - a pictorial image of the New World as a whole. With it, the first iconography of the American Indian had been created, and most Europeans glimpsed for the first time the wonders of the New World in the illustrations present here. For more than a century, the European view of the New World was dominated by the present work. Theodor de Bry himself published the first six parts (in German and Latin simultaneously), and after his death, his widow and his two sons issued the three following parts. "It appears that they intended to stop there" (Sabin III, 20). However, 17 years later, Johann Theodor decided to publish another three volumes (1619-24). These are not present here. The present set is a mix of the German and Latin volumes (which appeared simultaneously), and as alw … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBBIA ARABIC
Medicae Tipogr, 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.

Francfurt, Iohannes Wechel & Petrus Fischer, 1591. 12mo. Lovely full calf binding from ab. 1800, with five raised bands and gilt ornamentations to spine. Blindstamped line-borders with gilt corner-pieces to boards. Inner gilt borders and all edges of boards gilt. Marbled end-papers. Old book-plate to inside of front board and a small stamp to title-page (from the Beltrame-library). A bit of wear to extremities and leather at hinges worn, otherwise very nice. Apart from a slightly dusty title-page, only minimal browning or spotting internally. A very nice copy indeed. Some leaves slightly shaved at top, just touching a few headers. With numerous woodcut illustrations throughout. (8), 217, (3) pp. ¶ The extremely scarce first edition of one of Bruno's main works, one of his key cosmological texts, being the earliest and most important of his three long Latin poems with prose accompaniment and thus one of the most influential works of the Renaissance. It is in this foundational work that "the greatest thinker in Italy during the sixteenth century" (Paterson) defines the triple minimum, which consists in the monad (being the basis of metaphysics), the mathematical point (being the basis of geometry), and the atom (being the basis of physics) and thus presents the basis for his theory of nature and the universe. It contains much of the author's ripest thought and his first description of his seminal doctrine of the minimum, by which he was the first Western thinker (since Plato) to introduce the atomistic theory of space.

Annibale CARRACCI (Bologna 1560 - Roma 1609)
1591. Acquaforte, 1591, datato in lastra in basso verso il centro, e firmato Carra: in. a sinistra, sul masso. Esemplare nel secondo stato di quattro (o terzo di cinque) con l'excudit dello stampatore Pietro Stefanoni aggiunto lungo il margine inferiore. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il disegno preparatorio di questa incisione si conserva al Louvre, ed è in controparte rispetto all'incisione. Bohn in TIB menziona un altro disegno preparatorio, oggi agli Uffizi che, secondo la sua opinione, doveva essere probabilmente un primo bozzetto per l'incisione, di cui la concezione di base è già formulata ma si riscontra un interesse maggiore per il paesaggio. Presso la Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna, si conserva un altro disegno di Annibale, ritenuto da De Grazia copia della parte superiore dell'acquaforte, e modello per un probabile piccolo dipinto devozionale, alla stregua del San Francesco adorante il Crocifisso. Un altro dipinto, della collezione Denis Mahon, mostra strettissime affinità con la stampa. Il dipinto è considerato come autografo del Carracci dallo stesso Mahon, che lo fa risalire al 1586 - 87, mentre Longhi, nel 1960, lo ha considerato come copia seicentesca derivante proprio da questa acquaforte. De Grazia collega questa incisione al dipinto carraccesco Venere e Adone, oggi al Prado. In particolare nota che le pose di Venere e Amore, e della stessa Maddalena derivano dall'incisione di Agostino modellata sul dipinto del Tintoretto Minerva che allontana Marte dalla Pace e dall'Abbondanza.

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 – prob … [Click Below for Full Description]

September 1591 ebenda) stammte aus der albertinischen Linie der Wettiner war seit 1586 Kurfürst von Sachsen. Er zweitälteste Sohn seines Vaters, Kurfürst August von Sachsen (1526–1586), und wurde nach dem Tod seines älteren Bruders Alexander 1565 zum Kurprinz. Seine Regierungszeit ist besonders von den Streitigkeiten im Zuge der Reformation bzw. auch den unterschiedlichen reformatorischen Lagern geprägt. Christian I. starb nach einem längeren Magen- und Darmleiden erst 30-jährig während einer Jagd. Er wurde im Freiberger Dom bestattet.

BIBBIA ARABIC
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]

STC 23078; ESTC S111266; Pforzheimer 968. ONCE ACCEPTED AS BEING THE EARLIEST REFERENCE TO SHAKESPEARE. The following lines, published in Shakespeare's 28th year, form a part of a lamentation over perversions of public taste: "All these, and all that els the Comick Stage.... Are now despized and made a laughing game. 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 was once accepted to be the earliest notice by name of the immortal bard. It is now believed that "Willy" is Spenser's friend Sidney.

Sontag nach Trinitaris. 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

GORLAEUS (VAN GOORLE, VAN GOOIRLE), David.
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/> "Go … [Click Below for Full Description]
