Natale BONIFACIO (Sebenico 1537- ? 1592)
"Rarissima pianta prospettica della città, incisa da Natale Bonifacio per l'editore fiammingo Nicolas van Aelst, che la pubblica a Roma nel 1591. Descrizione tratta da Bifolco-Ronca, ""Cartografia e topografia italiana del XVI secolo. Catalogo ragionato delle opere a stampa"" (pubblicazione prevista per febbraio 2018): In alto, al centro in un nastro il titolo LA FEDELISSIMA CITTA DI GALLIPOLI. a sinistra lo stemma degli Asburgo di Spagna (Filippo II) con sopra la scritta IN OMNIA TECUM, a destra il gallo coronato stemma della città di Gallipoli con sopra la scritta NEC ANIMUS FATO MINOR.

[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]

Horozco y Covarruvias, Juan de.
Impresso por Juan de la Cuesta. 1591 (en el colofón 1589), Segovia. 311 folios, 29 hojas. 2 hojas (portadas de la segunda y tercera partes). Encuadernación de la época en piel jaspeada, hábilmente restaurada del lomo. Cortes pintados. Algunas hojas presentan ocasionales puntos de óxido, sombras de suciedad o algún defecto marginal. Palau 116236. Primer libro de emblemas impreso en España. Segunda edición calcada de la primera, únicamente cambia el año en la portada. Tal y como indica el título, la obra tiene una finalidad moral, por cuanto trata de consejos y advertencias con pretensiones didácticas, todo ello encaminado a la salvación de las almas. Alimenta el pensamiento de Horozco un neoestoicismo muy marcado reconocible en multitud de citas a Séneca, que predica la "virtus" como bien verdadero y recomienda al hombre paciencia ante la adversidad, templanza en los placeres e indiferencia hacia los bienes terrenos. Más erudito que creador, trabaja con un material de origen diverso, de manera que su obra asemeja mucho a una miscelánea o florilegio muy útil para predicadores, con el estímulo de la imagen visual y una rica representación de lugares de la Sagrada Escritura, patrística, filósofos, poetas y autores clásicos y modernos. El uso del idioma castellano viene justificado según su autor "por estar nuestra lengua tan extendida en el mundo que ya viene a ser tan general como la Latina, y aun a algunos les parece que más o lo será muy presto"; ello no le impide redactar la mayor parte de los motes de sus emblemas en latín, aunque también es posible encontrarlos en griego … [Click Below for Full Description]

SOLIS, Giulio Cesare.
Milan Michele Tini 1591 - 4to in eights, pp. [iv], 115; a very nice copy in contemporary limp boards (spine frayed but stitching sound). Early edition of this work by Giulio Cesare de Solis: first published in this form in Bologna in 1589. Prose descriptions of nine cities in Northern Italy are followed by long poems in ottava rima eulogising the principal northern cities. This Milan edition is the first to add Turin and Venice to the original seven - Mantua, Cremona, Lodi, Novara, Como, Alessandria and, given pride of place and by far the most space, Milan. Although his name is nowhere mentioned the author of the poetry in the book is Raffaello Toscano: his verse descriptions had already appeared with the title 'L'Origine di Milano' BMC Italian p. 632; EDIT 16 16907.

MENDOZA, Bernardino de;
Paris, Guillaume Chaudiere, 1591. In-8 de (28), 372 [9 derniers mal chiffrés], (19) ff., vélin ivoire à rabats, filets dorés en encadrement sur les plats, armes et devise dorées au centre, dos à nerfs plats orné de fleurons dorés (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale, parue d'abord en français, donnée un an avant l'Espagnole. Ambassadeur de Philippe II auprès de Henri III, Bernardino de Mendoza joua un rôle dans la formation de la Ligue. Représentant de son roi auprès de ce parti catholique, il se lia avec sa faction la plus extrémiste, celle des Seize. Ses Commentaires parurent dans un Paris aux mains de la Ligue et des Espagnols qui avaient obligé Henri IV à en lever le siège. En ce temps de guerre civile, ces récits des campagnes victorieuses des troupes du duc d'Albe - protégées par la faveur divine - contre les calvinistes révoltés aux Pays-Bas furent alors présentés comme un modèle et un encouragement pour les ligueurs. C'est à cette lecture pro-espagnole que nous convie le traducteur de Mendoza, Pierre Crespet, prieur du couvent des Célestins, dans son Epistre à la Noblesse catholique de France, mettant en garde contre "l'horrible blasphème de penser qu'un diadème peut entourer le chef d'un hérétique".

VD16; Index Aureliensis, IV, 151; BM STC Ger and Berkeley Law Library, later eds.; Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie, Band 2 (1875). Scarce, the OCLC locates only the copy at Harvard. This is a very interesting work on the law relating to all aspects of marriage by Joachim von Beust (1522-1597), lawyer and teacher at Wittemberg. During his studies at Leipzig Von Beust became acquainted with the writings of Luther. His first work on marriage, "Tractatus de sponsalibus et matrimonis ad praxin forensem accomodatus", was published in Wittenberg in 1582, in which he develops the first legal code for the protestant people of Saxony concerning marriage. Although based on catholic traditions, Von Beust, drastically departs from them by allowing divorce. And in the tradition of Luther, permitting divorce takes marriage from the control of the Church, to that of the State. The second part of the book details the grounds for the legality of divorce, in cases of fatal illness, domestic violence, disputes, impotence, adult … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ioa. Mariam Scotum, ma J. Wolf. Napoli (ma Londra) (1563 ma 1591) - Ioa. Mariam Scotum (ma J. Wolf). 1 foglio bianco (non coevo), 10 fogli non numerati, 228 pagine, 1 foglio non numerato (con tre volvelle ancora da ritagliare), 1 foglio bianco (non coevo). Semplice frontespizio che riporta al centro una grottesca. Nel testo parecchie incisioni xilografiche di tabelle, strani simboli, messaggi cifrati, strumenti da adoperare per la crittografia (questi ultimi devono essere utilizzati con le apposite volvelle da ritagliare dall'ultima pagina del libro). Legatura moderna in piena pergamena, con titolo manoscritto sul dorso. Frontespizio con restauri. Una lacuna restaurata a pag. 7 con perdita di poche lettere (vedere foto), strappo riparato a pag. 39, ultima carta rinforzata. Qualche altro piccolo restauro/rinforzo qua e là (es. nell'ultima carta con le volvelle). Nel complesso esemplare molto buono. Rarissima contraffazione della prima edizione stampata a Napoli nel 1563 ad opera dello stampatore John Wolfe e seconda edizione in assoluto. La crittografia è una tecnica utilizzata per rendere un testo incomprensibile a chi non è autorizzata leggerlo. La crittografia non nasconde il messaggio, bensì il suo significato. L'alterazione del messaggio viene eseguito con un metodo concordato tra chi scrive e chi è autorizzato a leggere. Invertendo il procedimento, si ottiene il messaggio originario. Esistono due edizioni di questo trattato di crittografia stampate nel '1591: la presente, praticamente identica a quella stampata a Napoli nel 1563, ed un'altra con luogo e data "corretti" … [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]

Suoi sono anche il primo trattato sulle malattie cutanee ed un'importante opera di pediatria. Dopo aver studiato medicina all'Università di Bologna ed aver conseguito nel 1555 la laurea all'Università di Padova, dove ebbe modo di conoscere personalmente il medico veneziano Vettor Trincavella, seguì a Roma il Gran Cardinale Alessandro Farnese. A causa della sua fama, infatti, i forlivesi lo inviarono come legato presso il papa Pio IV, dove rimase sette anni. Fu poi professore di medicina pratica in entrambe le università dove aveva studiato. A P … [Click Below for Full Description]

On arriving in Florida, they founded Fort Caroline, near present-day Jacksonville, at the mouth of the St. John's River, where they remained for fifteen months until the fort came under attack from the Spaniards (who were determined to drive the French out of Florida) at dawn on the 20th of September 1565.

Alpini, Prosperi.
Sub Signum Leonis, Venice, 1591. (198 x 138 mm). 26 pp. + [2], Latin text, woodcut device on title, two large woodcut illustration, ornamental initials, headpieces; light browning. Modern vellum-backed boards (new endpapers). From the Giancarlo Library of Scientific Books, Sub signum Leonis [heirs of C.T. Navó]. Reprint of a treatise on the qualities of the balsamum tree, first published in Venice in 1511. After obtaining his doctor's degree in 1578, Alpini settled as a physician in Campo San Pietro, a small town in the Paduan territory. But his tastes were botanical, and to extend his knowledge of exotic plants he travelled to Egypt in 1580 as physician to George Emo or Hemi, the Venetian consul in Cairo. In Egypt he spent three years, and from a practice in the management of date palms, which he observed in that country, he seems to have deduced the doctrine of the sexual difference of plants, which was adopted as the foundation of the Linnaean taxonomy system. He says that "the female date-trees or palms do not bear fruit unless the branches of the male and female plants are mixed together; or, as is generally done, unless the dust found in the male sheath or male flowers is sprinkled over the female flowers".
