West introduced his precedents with theoretical discussions of the relevant legal principles, drawing upon civilian and continental scholarship. The book, which came to be regarded as a work of authority, was useful and popular, and rapidly revised in two parts.

        Peruviae Auriferae Regionis Typus. Didaco Mendezio Auctore/ La Florida. Auctore Hieron. Chiaves/ Guastecan Reg.

      Amsterdam: 1592 - A very early original color copper engraved map of the Spanish empire in the New World, made up of 3 maps on one sheet: the largest showing central and South America (Peru); the second showing Florida and the southeast; and the third, Guastecan (Huasteca), a northeastern province of Mexico. The map of Florida is important as it is the first regional map of the southeastern section of North America, and shows the discoveries of Spanish explorers such as Cabeza de Vaca and Hernando de Soto, including a distorted representation of the Mississippi River (named 'Rio del Spirito Santo'). First published in Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". Burden 57: "(La Florida) is one of the very few maps printed in the sixteenth century that was based upon original Spanish sources. They were very protective of their knowledge of the Americas, a considerable source of their wealth. The author of this map, Geronimo de Chaves, was the Cosmographer Royal to Philip II of Spain". The map of Florida is considered to be the first to show any interior detail of the present day United States, and was set the standard for mapping the region for the century to come. Latin text on verso with first letter hand colored & decorated with griffins; the number '9' at the lower right. The present map is from the 1592 Latin edition, according to Cartographica Neerlandica (Background for Ortelius Map No. 15):1592L9 (last line, left aligned: feruentum). Image size: 18 x 13". Paper size: 20 3/4 x 17 1/8". Printed accurately, but not square on the page, sits tilted slightly toward the left. References: Van den Broecke, M. 15; Burden, P.D. 57; Cumming, W.P. (SE) 5.

        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]

        (griech. + lat.) Ilias

      Straßburg, Theodosius Rihel (um 1592).. 8°. 893, (1) S., (37) Bll. (letztes weiß). Holzschnitt-Druckermarke (Heitz, Tafel XXXII, 15; differierend vom Digitalisat unter VD 16, H 4660). Blindgeprägtes Schweinsleder d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln (VD stark, RD etwas fleckig, nachgedunkelt) mit altem handgeschr. Rückentitel und zwei Schließen. Griechisch-lateinische Ausgabe. Die genaue Ausgabenbestimmung erfolgte nach VD 16: H4658 differiert in der Kollation, H 4659 im Satzspiegel der Widmung (s. die jeweiligen Digitalisate). Der Autor, der am Beginn abendländischer Kultur steht, hat im Laufe der Jahrhunderte die unterschiedlichsten Interpretationsansätze erfahren; gerade in den letzten Jahrzehnten hat die klassische Philologie immer konturierter das Bild von Homer als einem Dichter herausgearbeitet, der mündlich tradierte Epik ("Oral Poetry") aufnahm und diese Einzelteile zu einem Ganzen formte; dazu - so nimmt man an - bedurfte es der Schriftlichkeit, und so steht Homer am Beginn einer auf schriftlicher Fixierung aufbauender Literatur. Eine seiner Leistungen liegt damit in der Ausformung und Zusammenbindung ursprünglich vereinzelter Teile. Er setzt die Einzelepisoden "zueinander und zum Ganzen in Bezug, ordnet und gewichtet die Szenen und schafft dadurch aus den Einzelheiten, wie es griechischem Geist entspricht, ein einheitliches Ganzes ... Dazu kommt ein Zweites. Homers Gestalten sind keine Marionetten ..., die sich ... weidlich als tüchtige Haudegen herumschlagen, sondern erfahren eine menschliche Vertiefung, die sie zum Prototyp einer neuen Menschlichkeit werden lässt" (L. Voit im Nachwort zur Artemis-Ausgabe). "Seit dem 6. Jh v. Chr. zu Schulbüchern geworden, durch Rhapsodenvorträge überall im griechischen Sprachraum verbreitet, von vielen Gebildeten auswendig gelernt, sind Ilias und Odyssee von unabsehbarem Einfluss auf die griechische Sprache, Literatur und bildende Kunst gewesen, sie wurden prägendes Beispiel der griechischen Vergangenheit und Bildner des griechischen Selbstbewusstseins." (KNLL 8, 23). Es ist nicht übertrieben zu sagen, dass Homer neben den Olympischen Spielen zu den wichtigsten Elementen eines gesamthellenischen Bewusstseins einer in Stadtstaaten organisierten griechischen Welt gehört. Der Streit zwischen Agamemnon und Achilleus und das daraus folgende Zentralmotiv des Zorns stellen ein wichtiges Band dar, um die einzelnen Episoden zu verknüpfen und die Personen zu individualisieren. "Diese Geschichte ist eine Reflexion der Oberschicht-Problematik des 8. Jh. Angesichts eines rasanten wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Aufbruchs (DNP 5, Sp. 693). Vorderer Spiegel mit kleinerem Ausschnitt und zwei handschr. Besitzereinträgen, einer davon auf Titel recto wiederholt; dort 4 kurze ausgestrichene handschr. Einträge.

        Typed Manuscript Signed, in English, with many handwritten corrections, 7 separate pages, London, 1941

      In honor of his Czech heritage, Kokoschka writes on the contributions of John Amos Comenius, (Komensk in Czech,) (1592-1670) a religious refugee, pioneer in education, and one of the earliest champions of universal education. Comenius believed in the role of science in society and promoted his belief that the enlightenment of mankind was ahead. Kokoschka?s essay compares the life and work of Comenius, specifically when he visited England in 1641, to the present time of post-war reconstruction and how universal education must still be the most important goal of society. His essay begins, ?The visit of... Comenius... evokes our particular interest to-day because official voices are now encouraging the aim of re-making the foundations of the social order, just as they were on the eve of the English Civil War when the famous exile paid his visit to England." Kokoschka presents information on England in the 17th century, saying ?there was... no fear of foreign ideas... Mystical strains... awoke again in the social unrest... existing order... had come into opposition... with this Christian principle of the human dignity of the individual.? He comments on Comenius? thought, ?Salvation is at hand ? through education,? and presents his own views on how education suffered after World War I. Kokoschka felt that as Comenius believed in fighting illiteracy, that fight needed to be continued now. ?Mass education seems sometimes to have been a failure. But Comenius? plan has not yet been realized. The resolve of the democratic peoples that this crusade against Fascism shall not again fade out... can perhaps best be furthered by focusing attention on the problem of how to free the individual by removing the primary cause of his bondage, that is, education for national ends.... With the break-up of the middle-ages, nationalism rose to a position of dominance over all human affairs. Nationalism has made the tone of popular thought sometimes inhuman...superhuman, but never... normal and human. We need a covenant on the guiding principles of of [sic] rational education....? Kokoschka?s essay ends with an appeal. ?Democracy underrates the growing complacency and despair of the backward masses.... The essential principle of his [Comenius] educational plan translated into modern language demands from world Democracy an international scientific control of mass-education by a board of internationally minded educational experts and scientists.... A World Education Board... would be the greatest instrument ever forged in the interest of world democracy, and thus indeed a realisation of Komensky?s [Comenius] highest aims.? Kokoschka then signs in full with place and date. Rust stain and small tear at top of first page
