        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. 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.).

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".

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.

THE FIRST MODERN ATLAS This Latin edition of 1592 was vastly expanded from the first edition of two decades earlier and includes the appendix of historical maps known as the "Parergon" that represents Ortelius's most personal contribution to the volume. Abraham Ortelius first published his atlas, "Theatrum orbis terrarium" in 1570, and as Rodney Shirley noted in his study of world maps, ushered in an era when "pre-eminence in map publishing was transferred from Italy to the Netherlands, leading to over a hundred years of Dutch supremacy in all facets of cartographical production." Ortelius was a true pioneer in map publishing, and his innovations brought momentous changes to the world views of contemporary Europeans. Little is known about his training and early career, but his true accomplishment, was the publication of the "Theatrum". To compile the atlas, he drew upon his many contacts in the growing network of European cartographers to secure the best existing maps. He then had them re-engraved by the talented Flemish artist Frans Hogenberg (1535-90) such that all conformed to a standard format and graphic style, appended scholarly text to their versos, and published them as a uniform edition. The result was an atlas that was truly without precedent. Previously, collections of maps had been assembled into book form, but none conformed to the modern definition of the geographical world atlas. These earlier volumes fell into two categories. The first comprised map books made to order according to the desires and needs of an individual client ("composite atlases," sometimes called "Lafreri atlases"), and no two were alike. In contrast to Ortelius's atlas, few of these books included explanatory text, and they contained a m [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        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.
