        De plantis Aegypti liber. [...] Accessit etiam liber de Balsamo alias editus.

      Venice, Francesco de Franceschi, 1592.. 4to. 2 consecutively paginated parts. (4), 80 (but: 84), (8) ff. (Pt. 2 has separate title page). With woodcut printer's device to t. p. and 50 large woodcut plant illustrations (many page-sized). 18th century marbled wooden boards. All edges sprinkled in red.. First edition of the earliest treatise on the native Egyptian flora, the author's most important scientific work. The Italian physician and botanist Alpini (1553-1617) spent three years in Egypt studying botany and hygiene as a companion to the Venetian Consul Giorgio Emi. He was "among the first of the Italian physician-botanists of the 16th century of examine plants outside the context of their therapeutic uses. Today this work is best known for containing the first European illustration of the coffee plant" (Hünersdorff). Alpini writes: "I saw in the garden of Halybey the Turk a tree [...] which is the source of those seeds, very common there, which are called Ban or Bon; from them everyone, Egyptians and Arabs alike, prepare a decoction which they drink instead of wine and which is sold in public bars just as is wine here and they call it 'Caova'. These seeds are imported from the Arabian peninsula [...]" (f. 26r, transl.). The coffee plant is pictured on f. 26v, captioned "Bon". - Binding rather rubbed and bumped (especially the spine); trimmed somewhat closely at upper edge; occasional brownstaining throughout with the odd waterstain; slight defect to title page repaired by a former owner. A good copy from the library of Karl Martin and Siri Hilda Karolina Norrman (1900-95) with their joint bookplate on front pastedown. - Edit 16, CNCE 1244. BM-STC Italian 20. Adams A 803. IA 103.853.

        Corpus Juris Civilis

      Venice: Iuntas, 1592 This is a 5-volume set of the CJC: Vols. 1-3 contain the Digest, or Pandects (the middle section in Vol. 2 called "Infortiatum'); Vol. 4, the first nine books of the Codex or Code of Justinian; Vol. 5, the last three books of the Codex, followed by the Novellas or "Novels," Imperial laws post A.D. 539, various edicts and extravagantes of "other princes," the Consuetudines Feudorum, the Lombard Laws, various other legal commentaries and finally the fourth part of the CJC, the Institutes of Justinian. Text is accompanied by the customary medieval glosses, chiefly those of Accursius and Bartolus. These volumes may not beautify a bookshelf, but are suitable for the student or scholar who delights in the satisfaction of physically handling historical source material. Their condition varies. Vols. 3-5 were rebound in lighter colored vellum, and probably at a later date than Vols. 1 and 2. Except for Vol. 2, which has significant tears at bottom of backstrip and a loose front cover, the bindings are basically solid. Title pages of Vols. 3 and 4 are damaged but repaired (see photo). Leaves mostly lightly browned, some more heavily. Very little foxing. Water stains in parts of Vols. 2, 3, and 4. Worm holes in margins of Vols. 3 and 5, affecting almost no text. Small burn holes (from pipe or candle?) on col. 2078 of Vol. 4. Seller is happy to answer any questions. Shipping wgt. is about 28 lbs.. Fair. /No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" Tall; 20 X 27.

        Plutosofia. Nella quale si spiega l'arte della memoria, con altre cose notabili, pertinenti tanto alla memoria naturale, quanto all'artificiale. -

      In - 4. Legatura dell'800 in mezza pelle, titolo e fregi oro sul dorso. Una figura umana a piena pagina inc. in rame e 4 diagrammi a piena pagina inc. in legno n.t. (6), 64 ff.; antica nota di possesso sul frontespizio; qualche fioritura. Seconda edizione (prima: 1592) dell?importante trattato dello scrittore calabrese, professore a Roma e a Padova, in cui sono raccolte 20 lezioni di mnemotecnica tenute a Palermo (nell?ultima esamina come dimenticare esperienze spiacevoli o traumatiche). ?Si tratta di una compilazione ispirata ad Aristotele e Quintiliano, e alla vasta pubblicistica cinquecentesca in materia (tra gli altri Lodovico Dolce e Giovan Battista Della Porta), privata dei riferimenti all'astrologia e alla medicina? (DBI 53, p.486). Interessante è la figura umana numerata (nella prima edizione era incisa in legno), ritenuta dall?autore un modello mnemonico più adatto per imparare e ricordare invece delle strutture immaginarie utilizzate da altri scrittori. Wellcome 2819. Young, Memory, 128. Yates, Art of Memory, p.165. Second edition. The work comprises 20 lessons on mnemonics (the last one suggesting how to best forget unpleasant experiences). With 4 full - page diagrams and an engraved full - page anatomical figure of a man accompanied by numbers. ?Instead of using words or letters of the alphabet, the author proposes a series of forty - two numbers attached to individual parts of the body... As a mnemonic model, the body has an advantage over imaginary structures as a site always available for reference in uniting numbers with places? (Claire Richter Sherman, Memory and Knowledge in Early Modern Europe, p.156). 19th century half calf; old name on title and some light foxing.

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Ex officina Plantiniana, apud Franciscum Raphelengium, 1592. Second Plantin edition (first was 1585). Printer's device on title page, woodcut diagram of a roman encampment on folded leaf, and 51 woodcuts in the text (machinery, battlements, weapons, etc.). [16], 320; [16], 480, [31] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary vellum, slightly soiled and bowed. First 150 pp. affected by slight worming. Second Plantin edition (first was 1585). Printer's device on title page, woodcut diagram of a roman encampment on folded leaf, and 51 woodcuts in the text (machinery, battlements, weapons, etc.). [16], 320; [16], 480, [31] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Plantin Vegetius, 1592. Magnificent edition of the classic by Vegetius, the fourth-century Roman military writer of whose personal life little is known, but whose book DE RE MILITARI has been constantly reprinted and translated into every modern language, has proved to be a primary source of our knowledge of Roman warfare. It contains 5 books: the first is on Recruits and Recruitment; the second, on the organization of the Legions (the Roman infantry); the third, treats of the operations of an army in the middle of a campaign; the fourth, on attacking and defending fortifications; and the fifth, on naval tactics. This edition, printed by the famous Plantin press, with their printer's device on the title page, was edited by the scholar Godescalcus Stewechius and is one of the earliest editions to contain a commentary on Vegetius, along with a discussion of the editor's sources. Equally important to the edition, however, are the illustrations, which have contributed greatly to a general picture of the Roman army.

The map is the new plate published from 1575, it has the lower case 'farfana' and the town 'Ara' above 'Aden' has disappeared. An interesting map of Asia with many topical pieces of information inserted, such as middle right: Hic Rhabarbarû tanta copia prouenit vt hinc ad omnes orbis partes vehatur :"Here one finds medicinal rhubarb in such quantities that it is exported to all parts of the world."; upper right: Hic vasa porcellinæ dicta finguntur: "Here vases of so-called porcelain are made."; upper right: Pons marmoreus 300 paß: "Here is a bridge made of marble, 300 strides long."; upper right: Vrbs Quinsai habet vt M.P.Venetus refert 100 mill. paß: in circuitu habetq. 12000 pontes: "The city of Quinsai, according to Mr. P. Venetus, is 100 miles in circumference, and has 12000 bridges." Good impression: paper evenly toned; some very light spoting Abraham Ortelius,[ 1527-1598] Flemish Cartographer . produced the first modern Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" in 1570. printed by Aegidus Coppen Diest. There were numerous editions thereafter with texts in various languages; the printing of such was taken over by Chrstoffel Plantijn in 1579 . Ortelius himself drew all the maps in manuscript before passing them to the printers. there is conjecture that he may have engraved some of the plates as well The 1595 Latin text edition is the most complete produced during his lifetime, containing all the maps of the 1593 edition plus those of the the"Additamentum" and the"Pareragon" or Ancient geography. The " Additamenta" were supplements to the original Atlas; at the same time Ortelius replaced some maps with new ones showing the same place; some plates were also reworked . Ortelius was Geographer Royal To Phillip II of Spain from 1575. He also worked closely with Braun & Hogenburg on the "Civitas Orbis Terarum". After his death the plates were purchased by Jan Baptiste Vrients in 1601 who published further editions until 1612.

Vegetius (Publius Flavius Vegetius Renatus), bekannter Kriegstheoretiker des ausgehenden 4. Jahrhunderts.

In antiken Quellen wird er vir illustris und comes genannt, daher gehörte er dem hohen römischen Reichsadel an. Das vorliegende Werk mit dem Kommentar des niederländischen Gelehrten für Geschichte und römische Altertümer Godescalcus Stewechius (1551-1586) ist der vierte Teil des Gesamtwerkes, das Buch zur Belagerungstechnik. Es gehörte bis in die Neuzeit zu den wichtigsten Werken zu diesem Thema, da es die beste diesbezügliche Beschreibung für die Zeit der Spätantike darstellt, die bis ins Mittelalter wirkte.

      ROMA: APPRESSO GUGLIELMO FACIOTTO, 1592. In 4. Dim. 33x23,5 cm. Pp. (28)+318+(38)+6. Raro esemplare del 1592, prima edizione italiana, di questo importante trattato di numismatica di Don Antonio Agustin (1517-1586), storico umanista spagnolo. L'opera venne pubblicata per la prima volta in spagnolo nel 1575. Ebbe molto successo, tanto che ad essa seguirono le edizioni italiane del 1592, 1625, 1648, 1650, 1736. L'opera è suddivisa in dialoghi tra l'autore e due ipotetici interlocutori. Le prime edizioni italiane contenevano undici dialoghi, l'opera venne poi arricchita di un dodicesimo dialogo e della vita dell'autore. Il nostro esemplare risulta completo di tutte le pagine editorialmente presenti nella prima edizione del 1592 ((12)+300+(32)+6) ma in più sono stati aggiunti dopo le prime 12 carte due quarterni (otto carte) tratte dall'edizione del 1736 che contengono la vita di Don Antonio Agostini, la bibliografia, note e indice e alla fine degli undici dialoghi il dodicesimo dialogo e le sei carte finali dell'edizione del 1736. I dialoghi descrivono le medaglie e quali tra di esse sono monete, i rovesci delle medaglie in particolare quelle che raffigurano virtù e Dei, provincie città e fiumi, edifici, animali, medaglie dell'Africa, Francia e Spagna, medaglie della provincia di Tarracona, della Betica e della Lusitania, iscrizioni, medaglie e iscrizioni false, le antichità romane scolpite nelle medaglie e della antica religione e Dei de Gentili. Dopo il fascicolo aggiunto del 1736 (dodicesimo dialogo e sei carte) è presente l'indice e un'aggiunta su una medaglia di Costantino che al colophon riporta "In Roma, appresso gli stampatori camerali". Il testo è impreziosito da quasi 1300 incisioni di medaglie e monete e 14 incisioni che rappresentano la misura delle medaglie, raffigurazione del Nilo, diversi archi di Roma tra i quali Arco Trionfale, Arco di Costantino, Arco di Portogallo).

The work was published for the first time in spanish language in 1575. The work had a great success, so much that followed the italian edition of 1592, 1625, 1648, 1650, 1736.

        Archetypa Studiaque Patris Georgio Hoefnagelii.

      Frankfurt, 1592. (165 x 220mm). 45 of 52 engraved plates. Loose sheets preserved in a plastic portfolio. A large portion of the first state. A beautiful and influential pattern book, one of the principal sources of seventeenth century still life painting. This work was engraved by the teenaged Jacob Hoefnagel (1573-1635), court painter to Emperor Rudolf II of Prague from 1602, under the supervision of his father Joris (1542-1601), last of the great Flemish miniaturists and manuscript illuminators./The title reads: "Archetype and verses by Joris Hoefnagel, his father, are presented, engraved in copper under the guidance of his genius and communicated in friendship to all lovers of the Muses by his son Jacob". Originally it was issued both in portfolio and as a bound volume and published in the imperial city of Frankfurt-am-Main, where Joris moved with his son in 1591 to escape religious persecution as a Calvinist in his native Antwerp. It was aimed to advertise his son's talents although this was the last time Jacob features as an engraver; he was trained and practiced as a painter./The complete work is divided into four parts, each containing an engraved title and twelve engraved plates illustrating natural history specimens, many of these reproduced for the first time. Jacob Hoefnagel drew from his father's small-scale cabinet miniatures and principally from a painted model book (which has not survived) which Joris Hoefnagel used for the illumination of some highly important manuscripts, especially those for Emperor Rudolf II at Prague./Joris Hoefnagel did not observe all his specimens from life and prototypes have been found for many (like the stag beetle from Dürer) but the majority of his images of plants and insects were done 'ad vivum'. The plates are arranged as if the specimens were items from a cabinet of natural curiosities or a 'Kunstkammer' like that of Rudolf II at Prague with its special focus on the microcosm and the world of small creatures. Many specimens are drawn to scale and each is combined into a composition that fills the entire printed area to form a pattern. They are viewed as if seen on a flat surface from above, often casting a shadow, with flowers attached to the left and right of the frame itself and therefore upright./There is a strongly religious content to the ensemble: a butterfly soaring upward from a pupa here becomes a symbol of the resurrection while the stag-beetle is to be interpreted as an image of Christ, for (according to tradition) it did not reproduce sexually. The whole work therefore is dedicated to the glorification of God in his smallest creatures: He is the 'Archetypa' at the centre of the whole work. Thea Vignau-Wilberg, in her fundamental work on the 'Archetypa' lists only twelve known sets of the first edition. "The 'Achetypa' was the first printed work to contain realistic representations of insects. Hoefnagel's engravings are in sharp contrast to the relatively stylised illustrations of previous publications and show many more details than the woodcuts in Aldrovandi's 'De insectis' which appeared ten years later" (E. Jorink. Reading the book of Nature in the Dutch Golden Age, 1575-1715 p. 191). //The set lacks: Pars I engraved title and plate 11, Pars II plate 9, Pars III plate 2 and Pars IV plates 10, 11 and 12. 21 plates are in fine condition, the others have minor paper repair or damage and 4 have more significant damage to the plates.//J. Hoefnagel: 'Archetypa Studiaque Patris Georgii Hoefnagelii 1592: Nature Poetry and Science in Art around 1600', Munich, 1994 (ed. T. Vignau-Wilberg).//BL STC p. 408; VD 16 H 4035 (Münich Staatsbibliothek); N.U.C. only lists an imperfect copy at Medical Center Library, Kansas City); Nissen 1954; BN Dép. Est. J B72.

        Le Court Leete & Court Baron Collect Per Iohn Kitchin De Graies Inne... Et Les Cases Et Matters Necessaries Pur Seneschals De Ceux Courts a Scier & Pur Les Students De Les Measons De Chauncerie [bound with] Retorna Breurum

      Richardi Tottelli. 1592. Hardcover. Rebound with remains of old covers and spine relaid, new spine label bearing gilt titles, some browning and spotting to first and last leaves, minor marginal chipping to title and upper outer corners of first few leaves not affecting text, some old ink underscoring and marginalia, close trimmed at upper margin shaving running heads in second half of volume, 'Retorna Breurum' with separate dated title page but foliation and register continous. Foliation [12] 289 [3], collation: A-A8 *4 A-Oo4. John Kitchin was a legal writer and was admitted to Gray's Inn in 1544 and called to the bar in 1547. Nothing is known of his life before this and he is most famous for his two works, 'Le Court Leete...' and 'Retourna Brevium...' first published in 1580 & 1581 respectively. While their content is drawn from records previously available in manuscript form, Kitchin reconstituted them with exposition under alphabetical headings that gathered together a great deal of learning from the year-books and later case law. His aim in this was to improve the knowledge of law students but he also expressed the desire to see manorial courts run by properly trained lawyers rather than the stewards who were merely the ‘servants’ of the lords and ‘ignorant in the law’. In this he was seeking to bring these courts under a broader and more uniform framework of Royal, as opposed to seigneurial, justice. These two works would continue be republished throughout the 17th century. , 8vo .

      Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden]: Ex officina Plantiniana, apud Franciscum Raphelengium , 1592 - Magnificent edition of the classic by Vegetius, the fourth-century Roman military writer of whose personal life little is known, but whose book DE RE MILITARI has been constantly reprinted and translated into every modern language, has proved to be a primary source of our knowledge of Roman warfare. It contains 5 books: the first is on Recruits and Recruitment; the second, on the organization of the Legions (the Roman infantry); the third, treats of the operations of an army in the middle of a campaign; the fourth, on attacking and defending fortifications; and the fifth, on naval tactics. This edition, printed by the famous Plantin press, with their printer's device on the title page, was edited by the scholar Godescalcus Stewechius and is one of the earliest editions to contain a commentary on Vegetius, along with a discussion of the editor's sources. Equally important to the edition, however, are the illustrations, which have contributed greatly to a general picture of the Roman army Second Plantin edition (first was 1585). 8vo.

Les commentaires de Stewachius (1557-1588) ont une page de titre particulière : Godescalci Stewechii Commentarius ad Flavi Vegeti Renati, De re militari libros. Accesserunt eiusdem G. Stewechii & Francisci Modii . Le texte de Polybe (livre VI de son Histoire) a été traduit en latin par Janus Lascaris (1445-1535). le dictionnaire militaire, 'Modesti libellus De vocabulis rei militaris' a été élaboré par Pomponius Laetus (1425-1497, ou Leto) et ses élèves d'après l'ouvrage de Vegece. Plein Velin d'époque souple à rabats. Traces de lacets. Titre à la plume noire. Bel exemplaire. Erreur du relieur : 49-64 ont été placées après la page 32, c'est ainsi qu'après la page 48 se trouve donc la page 65. Vegece fut un écrivain militaire romain vivant sous la seconde moitié de IVe siècle, et en dehors du fait qu'il fut fonctionnaire de l'empire, on sait peu de choses de sa vie. Il nous est resté de cet auteur un traité en 5 parties dont La premiere traite des recrues et du recrutement, la seconde de l'organisation de la Légion et des anciennes armées romaines, la troisième des manoeuvres militaires en campagne, la quatrième de l'attaque et de la défense des places fortes, la cinquième quant à elle concerne la tactique navale. Steewech, commentateur de cette édition, fut professeur à Pont A Mousson. Ex libris gravé aux armes de Jean-Baptiste Peyer, seigneur de Fontenelle. [16], 320, [16], 480, [32] pp. et une planche dépliante. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Lyon: Pour Thomas Soubron, 1592 - Quatrième édition collective, 2 tomes reliés en 1 volume in-12; T.I: 300 ff., portrait d"une édition XVIIIème monté en frontispice. T.II: 154 ff, [8 ff]. Fine reliure en maroquin citron de la fin du XIXème, plats encadrés d"un triple filet doré, dos à nerfs très joliment orné, gardes marbrées, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées. Quelques taches légères sur les plats, mais un très bel exemplaire, avec l"ex-libris de Philippe-Louis de Bordes-de-Fortage (malheureusement surchargé ainsi que les premières gardes du nom d"un propriétaire récent). Quatrième édition collective, (la première fut imprimée par Hamert Patisson à Paris en 1578). Le premier tome comprend: "Les Amours et nouveaux eschanges des Pierres precieuses: vertus & proprietez d"icelles" avec une table des pierres précieuses, le "Discours de la vanité", les "Eclogues sacrées", les Journées de La Bergerie et Les Apparences célestes d"Arat. Le titre du second tome porte: "Les Odes d"Anacréon Teien, poète grec, traduictes en François. Avec quelques petites Hymnes de son invention, & autres diverses poësies: Ensemble une Comédie". Poète de la Pléiade aux côtés de Ronsard, Du Bellay, Baïf, Desportes, Belleau fut très estimé de son vivant pour la simplicité, la grâce et la vivacité de ses poésies, inspirées de la manière des poètes grecs. Les "Amours des pierres précieuses", première pièce du recueil, mêlent de façon originale le symbolisme des pierres et leurs vertus physiques ou médicinales. Brunet Supplément, 103: "l"éditeur s"est permis de supprimer une partie d"un cahier qui suit la p.304 où se trouvent répétés des vers déjà imprimés dans le volume, sans s"apercevoir ou sans daigner tenir compte qu"il enlevait en même temps la table du premier volume et quelques autres vers". Les 6 feuillets non chiffrés en fin d"ouvrage après la table du T.II, qui manquent à certains exemplaires, sont une série d"épitaphes par Passerat, Le Baïf, Desportes, Ronsard, écrites pour la tombe de Belleau. Tchemerzine I, 573. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Della imprese trattato di Giulio Cesare Capaccio. In tre libri diuiso

      Naples ex officina Horatij Saluiana, appresso Gio. Giacomo Carlino, & Antonio Pace 1592 - FIRST EDITION. 4to. 3 vols. in one. ff. [xxxii], 84; 148; 60. Roman letter with some Italic and Greek. First title with Carlino and Pace’s woodcut device, smaller version on second and third titles and on verso of last, fine grotesque initials, head and tail-pieces and typographical ornaments, 303 woodcuts, mostly oval illustrations of ‘imprese’ with woodcut symbols and armorial shields in text, table within printed line border, autograph of ‘Estorici morin? Vecchio 1663’ on title, another scribbled out above. Light age yellowing in places with some minor light spotting, small hole in Yy1, original paper flaw, with loss of a few letters. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary vellum over boards, edges gauffered in blind, lower hinge split.
 First edition of this important and beautifully illustrated treatise on the use, meaning and creation of imprese, "The first emblem book to deal with flora and fauna, published three years before the books by Camerarius. The woodcuts are very delicate and charming" (Landwehr). Books 1-2 contain a general discussion of imprese, while book 3 contains many examples of imprese in the usual format of motto, illustration, epigram in verse, and explanation in prose. “In chapter 2 of book one, Capaccio discusses the difference between emblem and ‘impresa’ emphasizing the fact that the essence of the impresa is an intellectual conceit. The last chapter of the the first book deals with the significance of Colours.” Mortimer Harvard. "An impresa is a symbol comprising an image, identified as the 'body' and a motto, called its 'anima' (soul). The motto refers to a personal idea chosen by the inventor (whereas the emblem expresses a universal). The motto thus produces a playful disguise which is at the same time a revelation of its creator. It was mandatory that the motto eschew those universal meanings so characteristic of apophthegm, proverb, precept, enigma or question. The theorists further insisted that the language of the motto should be senior to the vernacular - Latin, Greek, or even Hebrew. Hence this 'anima' the soul of the impresa, was reserved for the learned, and hidden from the uneducated." 'Language and cultural Change', Lodi Nauta. Books of imprese quickly became a favored genre of the Renaissance. They are, as here, crammed with news, from classical historiography to contemporary events, including animalistic, astrological and poetic curiosities, and the relation of customs. The imprese's proximity to emblems, with the love of encoded expression helped to explain their success. Interestingly, the word “imprese” has evolved in Italian to refer also to ‘Company’ or ‘Business’ and thus the personal branding of renaissance imprese has extended into a far more modern concept of professional branding. A very good copy of this interesting and superbly illustrated work. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
