Besler, Basilius.
Copper-engraved on folio sheet(18 3/4" x 15 3/4" plus margins), hand colored. Hand coloring probably done later, two corners creased, some edgewear, minor archival tape repairs, remnant of attachment tape in one margin, not particularly visible, slight soiling and foxing; but still a very bright, colorful, and attractive plate. Basilius Besler (1591-1629) was a pharmacist by training and worked in Nuremberg. He set up a garden in Nuremberg, and became a well known botanist where he lived. After being instructed by the Bishop of Eichstatt to create a botanical garden, he wrote about the garden, and produced his famous botanical atlas "Hortus Eystettenis" in 1613. This work contained a total of 1086 illustrations on 367 engraved plates. This illustration features common Oregano in a very colorful layout. basilius-besler.com

LE MOYNE, Jacques (c.1533-1588). - Theodor DE BRY
Theodor De Bry, Frankfurt, 1591. (13 1/2 x 9 5/8 inches). Engraved title, engraved section title, folding engraved map "Florida Americae Provinciae . descriptio", 42 plates after Le Moyne with letterpress titling above and text beneath, 2 engraved illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum, cloth ties, contained within a modern morocco backed cloth box. A fine wide-margined copy of the first Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. 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.

BUDELIUS, R. [RENÉ BUDEL]. - [STANDARD WORK ON COINAGE - THE FIRST OF ITS KIND]
Coloniae, Ioannem Gymnicum, 1591. 4to. Bound in a contemporary embossed full vellum binding. Spine with a bit of discolouring; marks from a removed paper title-label. Contemporary handwriting to second front free end-paper and to top of title-page. Internally very fine and clean. (76), 798 pp. (As usual with the typopgraphical errors: pp. 139, 234, 267,353, 685, 768 are numbered as 339, 202, 263, 343, 645, 778. These errors are to be found in all published copies. See Einaudi 737).. Scarce first edition of one of the earliest - and most important - works on coinage, dealing with weight and measure, as well as the value and devaluation of money. Apart from the seminal original contribution of Budel, this extensive work contains 29 contributions by earlier philosophers and theologians on the subject, - a compilation of almost every earlier treatise on the subject - which, in a true Renaissance spirit, makes it the very first compilation in economic history. ''De Monetis et re numaria remained the standard work on the subject for almost two centuries. (Nussbaum, A Note on the Idea of World Money). During the Renaissance, international banking saw a rise, which eventually resulted in a demand for one uniform European coinage. Budelius' thesis can be read as an ideological response to this demand, as he argued for precisely that: a unified market with one universal coinage. In this sense, his work anticipates by several hundred years many of the economic thoughts presented by the Classical economists during the second half of 18th century. Budelius discusses the metallic view an … [Click Below for Full Description]

L';ESPINE, Jean de (ca. 1505-1597)
[Geneva]: Jacob Stoer, 1591. 8vo (173 x 110 mm). [24], 761, [15] pp. Roman and italic types, shoulder notes, woodcut printer's device on title (Silvestre 1002), woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Contemporary blind roll-tooled alum-tawed skin, edges stained green (some minor rubbing). Provenance: Jesuits of Amberg (Bavaria), 18th-century inscription on title, later paper shelfmark label at foot of spine; a few 18th-century marginal notes and occasional underlinings in red ink in the last treatise.*** First Latin edition of four works of erudite spirituality by a significant but neglected advocate of French Calvinism in the period preceding the Edict of Nantes. An Augustinian monk from Anjou, de l'Espine corresponded wtih Calvin and eventually abandoned the cowl to embrace Protestantism. His pastoral works of spiritual edification and consolation, combining the traditional tropes and forms of Catholic pastoral literature with Calvinist convictions, met with great success and were widely translated, reaching readers in England, the Low Countries, and Germany: 89 sixteenth-century editions of his 19 works are recorded in the Universal Short Title Catalogue [USTC]. De l'Espine's role in the French Reformist controversies and his effectiveness as a proponent of a reasoned Reformist doctrine during this period of religious strife were recently examined by B. Roussel, for whom his writings belong to a group of major literary sources for modern understanding of the "interior life" of French Calvinists, supplanting the paucity of historical sources such as record … [Click Below for Full Description]

LUCAS J. WAGHENAER
Engraved map, 54x41,5cm Antwerp 1591-92 Published by Jean Bellère and Cornelis Claesz and replaced the "Universe Europe maritime..." from 1584 (see Kunstantikvariat PAMA, March 2011 entry 71 and the chart above). There are several changes to the previous map. The shape of Iceland is very different and more precisely, it extends further north and east to include Italy, the Finnish Bay and parts of The Adriatic sea, Russia and Novaya Zemlya. The chart shows close resemblance with Cornelis Doedsz' depiction of Scandinavia "Tabula hydrographica, tum maris Baltici..." (1589 or later). One of three recorded copies, all in institutions, is in theThe Norwegian National Library. The Doedsz chart was also engraved by the Van Doetecum brothers. Their engraved style is distinctive. They manage to provide incredible detail while maintaining absolute clarity. Our copy is in a strong, black impression with a delicate plate tone.. As commonly seen the left, right and lower margin are trimmed with some loss of the grade scale, the lower is trimmed into the bottom of the map. A fine, small restoration south-west of Iceland. The text verso slightly comes through in the Mediterranean. "Old" Koeman volume IV Wag 9B, William B.

VIÈTE, François.
First printing of Viète's <i>Ad logisticem speciosam notae priores</i> (one of his main works), together with the second edition of his <i>In artem analyticum isagoge</i>, "the earliest work on symbolic algebra [by] the greatest French mathematician of the sixteenth century" (PMM). The first edition of the <i>Isagoge</i>, published at Tours in 1591, is, together with the Lobachevsky, the rarest mathematical work in PMM, and this second edition is in fact rarer than the first in institutional collections [OCLC lists only copies in France and UK].<br/><br/> "The 'Introduction to the Art of Analysis' is the earliest work on symbolic algebra. Viète's greatest innovation in mathematics was the denoting of general or indefinite quantities by letters of the alphabet instead of abbreviations of words as used hitherto. Known quantities were represented by consonants, unknown ones by vowels; squares, cubes, etc., were not represented by new letters but by adding the words quadratus, cubus, etc. Viète also brought the + and - signs into general use. This algebraic symbolism made possible the development of analysis, with its complicated processes, a fundamental element in modern mathematics" (PMM). "This innovation, considered one of the most significant advances in the history of mathematics, prepared the way for the development of algebra" (DSB). <br/><br/> "To the treatises of the <i>Isagoge</i> belong <i>Ad logisticen speciosam notae priores</i> and <i>Ad logisticen speciosam notae posteriores,</i> the latter now lost. The first was not published during his lifetime, because Viète … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wolf). 1 blank leaf (not contemporary), 10 not numbered leaves, 228 pages, 1 not numbered leaf (with three volvells still to be cut), 1 blank leaf (not contemporary). Simple title page with a grotesque in the center. Thera are a lot of woodcuts representing tables, strange symbols, coded messages, tools to be used for the cryptography (these ones shall be used with the relevant volvells to be cut from the last page of the book). Full vellum modern binding with handwritten title on the spine. Title page with some repairs. A small lack of paper at the top of page 7 has been repaired with loss of some letters (see photo); tear restored at page 39, last sheet reinforced. Few small other repairs/reinforcement here and there (e.g. last sheet with volvells). In general, a very good copy. Very scarce counterfeit printed by John Wolfe of the first edition (Naples (Italy), 1563); second edition in absolute. Cryptography is a technique used to render incomprehensible to people not authorized to read it. Cryptography doesn't hide a message, but its meaning. The distortion of the message is carried out using a method agreed between the writer and people authorized to read it. By inverting the process, it comes out the original message. There exists two editions of this treatise printed in 1591: the present one, practically Identical to that one printed in Naple in 1563, and another one with correct place and date (Londini, apud Iohannem Wolphium) and with another dedicat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antuerpiæ ex officina Plantiniani, apud viduam, & Ioannem Moretum, 1591. Très belle édition de la Veuve Plantin, commenté par Laevius Torrentius. Remarquable page de titre avec sa gravure pleine page composée des douze portraits des Césars et sa marque d'imprimeur. Deux très larges lettrines et deux culs de lampe dans la préface et dans le Au lecteur. Nombreuses illustrations sous forme de monnaie tout au long du texte. Papier vergé d'excellente qualité. Peu de rousseurs. Laevinus Torrentius fut la personnalité la plus remarquable de Belgique pendant un quart de siècle. Archidiacre de Brabant et vicaire génral de Liège ou devenu evêque d'Anvers, il consacra sans relâche au culte des belles lettres les loisirs que lui laissaient des charges absorbantes. De ce labeur incessant naquit une abondante production littéraire et scientifique. Ses travaux philologiques, commentaires sur les œuvres d'Horace et de Suétone furent édités de son vivant, ou peu après sa mort. Torrentius, semble-t-il, se souciait bien davantage de la publication de ses œuvres poétiques.

En Madrid, por Luis Sanchez, 1591. 4to.; 8 hs., 412 folios. Encuadernación en pergamino, de la época. Rarísima traducción española de un clásico político del humanismo. La obra de Francesco Patrizzi, de Siena, Obispo de Gaeta, publicada originalmente en latín en Paris, Pierre Vidone, 1519, bajo el título «De Regno & Institutione Regis», y tal como registra Thomas Elyot (1490-1546) en su obra ««The Boke Named The Governour», publicada en Londres, 1580, fue junto a «Il Cortegiano» de Castiglione uno de los modelos utilizados por Erasmo para la redacción de su «Institutio Principis Christiani». La traducción al castellano de la obra de Patrizi aparece aquí realizada por Henrique Garcés «vezino de la ciudad de los Reyes, en el Piru», un curioso personaje que declara, en la dedicatoria a Felipe II, haber pretendido siempre ocuparse en Su Servicio «y con mas eficacia quando entendia podia dello redundar algun buen fruto al estado publico», confesando paladinamente que «ansi gasté no poca parte de vida y hazienda en descubrir y entablar en el Pirú el azogue y beneficio de plata con él». En medio del ajetreo de su actividad minera y especulativa se dedica a traducir la presente obra «por parecerme provechoso entretenimiento para herederos de grandes Reynos y Señorios, para que los que nuestro Señor os huviere dado comiencen desde los primeros rudimentos a habituarse en lo que a tan grande estado como les espera conviene».

LE MOYNE, Jacques (c.1533-1588). - Theodor DE BRY
Frankfurt: Theodor De Bry, 1591. Folio. (13 1/2 x 9 5/8 inches). Engraved title, engraved section title, folding engraved map "Florida Americae Provinciae ... descriptio", 42 plates after Le Moyne with letterpress titling above and text beneath, 2 engraved illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum, cloth ties, contained within a modern morocco backed cloth box. A fine wide-margined copy of the first Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. 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 whi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Theodor de Bry (1528-1598)
16th century engraving of Native Americans after painting by Jacques Le Moyne Theodor de Bry (1528-1598) Voyages to America Frankfurt: 1591 Hand-colored copper plate engravings, after drawings by Jacques Le Moyne 12" x 9"; 23 ½" x 20" framed Theodore de Bry was born in Liege (Belgium) in 1528 to well-to-do Protestant parents. He lived in Liege until the 1560s, when he was forced to flee to Strasborg to avoid the religious persecution. To earn his living in Strasborg, de Bry opened a goldsmith shop and also worked as an engraver. In 1588, de Bry moved to Frankfurt, and it was at this point late in his life that de Bry turned his attention and considerable skill as an engraver toward illustrating and reprinting works concerning the New World of the Americas. De Bry’s landmark volume is a striking visual interpretation on 16th century Native American culture in the Southeast. Jacques Le Moyne traveled to La Florida, as the entire region was known, in 1562 with a French expedition to encourage colonization of the New World. Le Moyne lived in the Huguenot colony at Fort Caroline, compiling an extensive collection of drawings to document the daily life and ritual practices of the local Indians. The colony was destroyed by the Spaniards in 1865, but Le Moyne was able to escape with his drawings. Theodore DeBry completed these stunning engravings in Frankfurt in 1591. The images of the New World convey a strong sense of the mystery and exoticism that characterized early European notions about the New World and it’s native “savages.” These images, including scenes of hunting, farmin … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE MOYNE, Jacques (1533-1588) [De Bry Voyages: Florida]
Frankfurt: Johannes Wechel for Theodore de Bry, 1591. Small folio ( 325 x 235 mm). [5], [1 blank], 30 pp., 42 leaves, [17] pp., including final errata leaf. Two engraved titles, large folding engraved map of Florida, 42 fine half-page engravings after Jacques Le Moyne, each with letterpress captions (engraved title to text mounted and with a few restored tears, engraved title to engravings cropped at foot, some mostly marginal dampstaining and softening of paper, fol. xxiii creased, lap of seated queen on plate 37 scribbled over by a modest reader). Later blind-stamped calf to a 16th-century style. First edition, and an excellent copy of Part II of the de Bry Grands Voyages, containing Jacques Le Moyne's narrative of the second French colonial attempt in North America, the ill-fated expedition to Florida under Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière. First published in 1588 (de Laudonnière's own account had appeared in 1586), this is the first illustrated edition. Le Moyne, who appears to have been employed as court artist under Charles IX, accompanied this largely Huguenot expedition, undertaken in 1564 in hopes of establishing a permanent settlement in the New World, which finished in disaster: the good relations initially established with the Indian tribes inhabiting the territories around the settlement site at St. Johns soon soured, and a few members of the French party became disaffected and revolted against their leaders. The final coup de grace came when a Spanish force attacked Laudonniere's stronghold at Fort Caroline. In the end Le Moyne was one … [Click Below for Full Description]
