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]

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".

He was close to Charles the Bold, and after his death held the important position of maître d'hotel to his daughter Mary of Burgundy and her husband, and was sent on a mission as ambassador to France. He saw at close hand the dispute over Flanders between the kingdom of France and the dynasty of the Habsburgs after Charles' death. The area then held a central place in the Empire over which Charles V and his successors wanted hegemony. (Wiki).

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...''.

Girolamo Piatti
Franciscum de Fraciscis Senensem, Venice, 1591. A colorful binding housing a unique Jesuit work detailing the glorious nature a religious state might offer. Once belonging to a Carmelite hermitage in Italy, this beautiful work can now grace your libraries shelves. Written in Latin, the author is noted for his strong & beautiful use of the language, as well as his ability to quote fathers of the church and the Bible. In 1868 Patrick Mannock authored commentary for De Bono Status Religiosi providing the following introduction to the book: "A valuable old work, entitled, The Happiness of a Religious State, ?rst written in Latin by one of the Jesuit Fathers, and translated into English in 1632 ; a perfect cyclopaedia of itself on that all important subject. The gifted and, most likely, sainted author quotes largely from the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, as well as from a great number of other ancient writers, eminent for learning and holiness of life. His own reasoning is also terse and conclusive, and such as might be expected from so learned a source, where nearly every chapter abounds with so many passages from the Sacred Scriptures, the writings of the ancient Fathers and others. " "The Work is divided into three books, in one quarto volume. But ?rst we had better give the last paragraph of the preface to this book, premising that the translator’s style, though antique, will be found clear and impressive, and that the subject is of such importance as to deserve to be perused with deep and intense interest."
