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 woodcut illustrations, which have contributed greatly to a general picture of the Roman army. Adams V-337

First edition of the second French translation of a history of the conquest of Spain by the Moors, detailing events from 712 to 761 A.D., a description of Spain during the same period, and a biography of Almanzor (ca. 938-1002), the Islamic ruler of the Iberian Peninsula at that time. It was first published in Spanish in 1592, and according to the title-page the history itself is translated from an original 8th-century Arabic chronicle by "Abdulcacim Tarif Abentarique", but now generally believed to have been written directly in Spanish by the "translator", Miguel de Luna (ca. 1550-1619). The same seems to be the case for the biography of Almanzor by "Ali Abensufian". The complete volume was translated into French for the present edition by Guy Alexis Lobineau (1666-1727). With owner's inscription on title-page. Some very minor water stains in the head margin throughout, a couple smudges and the title-page slightly thumbed, otherwise in very good condition.

Stemma xilografica al frontespizio. Bellissime iniziali animate. Finalini ornati. Prima non comune edizione nella versione corretta e riveduta da Serdonati, di questa celebre storia fiorentina scritta dal grande umanista e storico originario di Terranuova (oggi Terranuova Bracciolini in provincia di Arezzo), Giovanni Francesco Poggio Bracciolini, nome umanistico Poggius Florentinus, (Terranuova, 11 febbraio 1380 – Firenze, 30 ottobre 1459). "È ricordato per aver rimesso in circolazione, sottraendoli a secoli di oblio, diversi capolavori della letteratura latina; su tutti, il noto autore latino Quintiliano.". La sua "Istoria" pubblicata per la prima volta in questa traduzione in volgare dai manoscritti originali latini, operata dal nipote di Poggio, Jacopo, venne edita per l’interessamento del grande traduttore e letterato, a lungo docente di grammatica, originario di Lamole (Firenze), Francesco Sardonati che corresse nuovamente la traduzione ed aggiunse le sue note. L’opera copre un periodo storico che va dalle origini di Firenze fino agli anni di Bracciolini con particolare attenzione al periodo che va dal 1250 al 1350. Bracciolini "È ricordato per aver rimesso in circolazione, sottraendoli a secoli di oblio, diversi capolavori della letteratura latina; su tutti, il noto autore latino Quintiliano . Nel 1403, ventitreenne, si recò a Roma con una lettera di presentazione di Salutati. Fu prima abbreviator, poi si fece strada nella cancelleria papale fino a raggiungere, circa nel 1410, la carica di secretarius domesticus, ossia segretario personale, dell’antipapa Giovanni XXIII, eletto al Concilio di Pisa. A causa delle vicissitudini del Grande Scisma d’Occidente (1378-1417) si trovò, per la sua posizione, a viaggiare per la Germania e la Francia, soprattutto per seguire i lavori del Concilio di Costanza (1414-1418). Il Concilio ebbe un esito infausto per Poggio: Giovanni XXIII fu deposto. Retrocesso di nuovo ad abbreviator e trattato con alterigia, Poggio lasciò l’incarico. Nel 1418 si recò in Inghilterra al seguito del vescovo di Winchester, il cardinale Enrico Beaufort e vi rimase quattro anni. Nel 1423 ritornò in Italia; durante il viaggio verso Roma passò per Colonia dove riscoprì una copia la Cena Trimalchionis, excerptum dal Satyricon. A Roma fu reintegrato nel suo incarico in Curia da Papa Martino V. Fu segretario anche dei successori Eugenio IV e Niccolò V, fino al 1453. Attivissimo, lavorava come segretario papale, gestiva uno scriptorium e trovava il tempo per effettuare traduzioni (specialmente da Senofonte e da Diodoro Siculo) e scrivere dialoghi d’argomento morale. Nel 1427 Poggio comprò una casa nel paese natale, la "Valdarnina". Successivamente vi tornò almeno una volta all’anno. Nel 1436, all’età di cinquantasei anni, si sposò con la diciottenne Vaggia Buondelmonti (nata Selvaggia di Ghino Buondelmonti), appartenente a una famiglia della nobiltà feudale fiorentina. Scrisse il dialogo An seni sit uxor ducenda per spiegare questa scelta tardiva. Vaggia gli diede sei figli: cinque maschi (Pietro Paolo, Giovanni Battista, Jacopo, Giovanni Francesco e Filippo) e una femmina (Lucrezia). Tutti i maschi intrapresero la carriera ecclesiastica, ad eccezione di Jaco

His decision was spurred by the imprisonment and trial by the Roman Inquisition of the famous philosopher and astronomer Giordano Bruno.

        Discours du siège de la Ville de Rouen : Au mois de Novembre 1591. Avec le pourtraict du Viel & nouveau Fort.

      Rouen, Richard l'Allemant, sd. (1592). - Petit in-8, (8)ff., 149 ff., (2)ff., avec un plan dépliant "portraict du vieil et nouveau fort de Saincte Catherine" en fac similé. Restauration de papier à 3 coins en fin d'ouvrage, sans le dernier feuillet blanc. Exemplaire lavé. Basane brune du XVIIIe, filet à froid sur les plats, dos à nerfs orné, roulette sur les coupes. (Dos pastiche, gardes renouvelées, anciennes restaurations parfaitement réalisées). Rare édition originale, avec le plan du fort Ste Catherine en fac similé. Dans son oeuvre non seulement l'auteur a vu ce qu'il raconte, mais il a pris dans la défense de la ville une part des plus actives; à chaque pas du récit on le rencontre à la tête de la Milice des Bourgeois, dont il était, depuis 1588, un des douze capitaines. Procureur en la Cour du Parlement de Rouen comme son père, une foi très vive et très ardente l'animait; ce n'est point seulement le citoyen qui agit mais avant tout le catholique passionné armé pour défendre sa religion qu'il croit en péril par l'arrivée de Henri IV, ce roi huguenot partisan de Calvin qui ne saurait à ses yeux prétendre à monter sur le trône de saint Louis. Accaparé par ses fonctions de Capitaine de la milice et les nécessités de mettre la ville en état de se défendre, il abandonne sa charge de procureur au profit de son gendre. Après le siège, Valdory sera promu lieutenant général du vicomte de Rouen en récompense de ses loyaux services. Ce passionnant récit de siège écrit "à chaud", sera imprimé quinze jours seulement après la fin des événements, chez Lallemant, tenant sa boutique au Portail des Libraires. *L.R. Delsalle: Devant Ste Catherine les Rouennais defient Henri IV ; Frère II, 586. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1592. unbound. Map. Uncolored engraving. Sheet measures 16" x 21". This beautiful 1588 map by Abraham Ortelius depicts Holland or the Netherlands in exceptional detail. The map covers the regions near the Wadden Sea roughly covering modern day provinces of North Holland, South Holland and Utrecht. The map, centered on Amsterdam, is oriented with north to the left. Topographical and geographical features such as mountains and cities are beautifully rendered in profile.<br><br>The waters surrounding the region are shown with waves and include several illustrations of ships throughout. This is the first state of the map, with later states showing a stippled sea rather than waves. Includes a large strapwork title cartouche, scale of miles with a divider in the lower left. The Royal coat of arms is presented in the top left. The map also includes a 16-point compass rose.<br><br>Ortelius based this map on the work of Jacob van Daventer. Published in the 1588 edition of Ortelius' famous "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which is historically considered the first modern atlas. Based on the text on verso, only 300 copies of this particular edition were ever printed (van der Broecke 79).<br><br>The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold. Minor foxing at places. Original plate mark is visible. Latin text on verso.<br><br> Abraham Ortelius (1527--1598), a Flemish cartographer and geographer, is widely regarded as one of the important and influential cartographers in history. He is known for his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which was the first modern atlas. Hard to find in black and white.

        Dialoghi di Don Antonio Agostini ... intorno alle medaglie, inscrittioni, et altre antichità / tradotti di lingua spagnuola in italiana da Dionigi Ottaviano Sada, & dal medesimo accresciuti con diuerse annotationi, & illustrati con disegni di molte medaglie & d'altre figure

      Rome: Guglielmo Faciotto, 1592. First Complete Edition. Good antiquarian condition. Folio. [xii], 300 pp., 16 ff. (Index), 6 ff. (Supplement). Fine woodcut surrounding title, woodcut initials throughout, repetitions of 3 different woodcut vignettes, and 1,299 woodcuts of coins and medals, plus 11 half-page woodcuts (see below). Bound in later Italian flexible vellum (18th-century?), worn and spotted, lettered in manuscript on spine "Don Agostini de Medaglie" (front hinges partially separating from textblock); title-page cropped along lower margin (without loss) and old ink inscription heavily cancelled; spotting and browning throughout as is true in all copies, with varying degrees (the present copy more so). Old marginal repair on leaf N1 (not affecting text); tear to outer margin of leaf Z1 (not affecting text) and Aa4. With faults, and priced accordingly, this copy is UNSOPHISTICATED and is preserved in a protective cloth case. This is, in all likelihood, the earliest book illustrated by a woman. This individual has been identified by Nagler et al. as the Roman artist and woodengraver Geromina Cagnaccia Parasole (ca. 1567-1622). Some of the large woodcuts bear the monograms G.A.P. (p. 124), P.M. (pp. 106 and 125), and P.M.F. (on the lower edge of the title border). Nagler advances the very plausible theory that the letter "M" was included in the above monograms to distinguish Geromina from her husband Leonardo ("Moglie" = wife). Leonardo was also a wood engraver of considerable abilities, and it is worth considering that the monogram L.P. on p. 126 is his. "Apart from Geronima's contribution to the present work, only a few woodcuts by her are known [these are after designs of Antonio Tempesta]. It seems very likely that this is the earliest known book in which illustrations by a woman are found. In the sixteenth century only 35 women are known to have been artists and according to our researches Geronima and Isabetta Parasole were the only women who contributed to book illustration in that period (SOURCE: Slatkin, Woman Artists in History, 1958, p. 38). Whereas an exact count of the number of woodcuts in this edition of Agustin's "Dialoghi" has apparently never been attempted, our copy contains a unique manuscript Table (France, 19th-century?) which calculates according to "Dialogue" no less than 1,299 woodcuts of coins and medallions, plus the woodcut frontispiece and 11 large woodcut illustrations. Not included in the Table are the two half-page woodcuts of Roman architectural inscriptions which appear on fol. 2v of the Supplement. Agustin's work covers Greek, Roman, and Paleochristian coins and medals. Besides portraits, many of the coins depict elephants, crocodiles, birds, mythical animals (such as griffins), etc. Also included is a discussion of Roman antiquities; these are illustrated with full- and half-page woodcuts) of six triumphal arches. Agustin (1517-1586) was an antiquarian, archaeologist, legal historian, and Archbishop of Aragon. The "Dialoghi" was originally published in Agustin's native Spanish (in 1587, illustrated with only 51 engraved plates). The Dialogues are eleven in number, and recall discussions between an antiquarian and two students. There are sections on how to identify medals and coins (and forgeries); the importance and function of coins and medals in history; the subjects of Roman coins classified by city, deity, buildings, and so forth. Agustin then proceeds to describe coins in "foreign" places such as Africa, France, and Spain. This is in every way an unabashed celebration of the Antique. Our copy contains the 6-leaf Supplement in which is described and illustrated a Constantinian coin recently found by the translator.

Mai 1592 als zweiter Sohn der Eheleute Heinrich Degenhard Schall von Bell zu Lüftelberg und Maria Scheiffart von Merode, einer rheinischen Adelsfamilie, geboren. Der Geburtsort lässt sich nicht mit Sicherheit nachweisen in der Regel wird Köln, wo die Familie ein Stadthaus in der Nähe von St. Aposteln besaß, genannt. Darüber hinaus wird auch die Burg Lüftelberg, die Anfang des 16. Jahrhunderts von Margarethe von Gymnich zu Lüftelberg als Mitgift in die Familie Schall von Bell eingebracht worden war, als Geburtsort für möglich gehalten. J. A. Schall von Bell besucht zunächst das von Jesuiten geleitete Collegium Tricoronatum in Köln. Von 1608 bis 1611 absolviert er am Collegium Germanicum in Rom ein Studium u.a. der Mathematik und Astronomie, bevor er am 21.10.1611 in den Jesuitenorden eintritt. 1613 beginnt er ein Studium an der Gregoriana in Rom in den Fächern Theologie, Mathematik, Physik und Astronomie,das er 1617 abschließt. Im gleichen Jahr wird er zum Priester geweiht. Mitte April 1618 reist J. A. Schall von Bell zusammen mit einer Gruppe anderer Jesuiten von Lissabon nach Goa, um sich dort der China-Mission anzuschließen. Bei einem anschließenden Aufenthalt in Macao (1619) lernt er chinesisch. Am 25.1.1623 schließlich erfolgt die Ankunft in Peking, wo er erste astronomische Berechnungen vornimmt. Von 1627 bis 1630 hält sich J. A. Schall von Bell in Singanfu (heute Xi'an) auf, wo er weitere Berechnungen von Mondfinsternissen anstellt sowie geografische Arbeiten erledigt. 1630 nach Peking zurückbeordert, erhält er den Auftrag, den chinesischen Kalender zu reformieren, eine Aufgabe von großer politischer Bedeutung. Als Hofastronom wird J. A. Schall von Bell Vorstand einer mathematischen Lehranstalt 1640 schließlich übersetzt er Agricolas "De re metallica" ins Chinesische. Nach dem Untergang der Ming-Dynastie (1644) wird J. A. Schall von Bell noch im gleichen Jahr als erster Europäer Direktor des Kaiserlichen astronomischen Amtes und von Kaiser Shunzhi aus der nachfolgenden Mandschu-Dynastie zunächst zum Mandarin 5. Klasse, 1658 dann zum Mandarin 1. Klasse ernannt und zu einem der wichtigsten Berater des Kaisers. 1664 wird J. A. Schall von Bell nach dem plötzlichen Tod des Kaisers wegen Hochverrats, Verbreitung einer falschen Religion und unrichtiger Berechnungen verhaftet und 1665 zum Tode verurteilt. Ihm wird vorgeworfen, den Tod des Kaisers dadurch provoziert zu haben, dass er Ort und Zeit der Beerdigung des Kaisersohnes falsch berechnete. Gestützt wird die Anschuldigung durch Intrigen von ortsansässigen Christen. Einige sich unmittelbar nach der Verurteilung ereignende schwere Naturkatastrophen (Erscheinen eines Kometen - gilt als Unglück verheißend - , schweres Erdbeben) führen zur Wiederaufnahme des Verfahrens und schließlich zum Freispruch. Am 15. Mai 1665 wird J. A. Schall von Bell von dem neuen Kaiser Kangxi aus der Haft entlassen. Johann Adam Schall von Bell stirbt schließlich am 15. August 1666 im Alter von 74 Jahren in Peking.

      Colonia 1592 - Incisione in rame, colorata, mm 197x283. Questa carta di ispirazione mercatoriana, stampata da Johannes Bussemacher, collaboratore di Quad, che firma in lastra "Iohan Bussemecher excudit" è inserita in varie opere: "Europae, totius orbis terrarum partis praestantissimae universalis et particularis descriptio" pubblicato dal 1592 al 1596, "Geographisch Handt-buch" del 1600 e "Fasciculus Geographicus" del 1608. Quad, nato in Olanda, si trasferì in Germania per sfuggire alle guerre di religione che imperversarono a fine Cinquecento diventando uno dei massimi esponenti della Scuola cartografica di Colonia, formata principalmente da rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi tra i quali spicca il fondatore Frans Hogenberg. Quad usò per la sua attività diversi pseudonimi, tra cui Cyprian Eichovius e Konrad Loew. A causa dei numerosi pseudonimi la sua vasta produzione editoriale è di grande fascino e rarità. Ottimo stato di conservazione con lieve ingiallimento della carta spesso molto brunita, testovisibile in trasparenza, come sempre.Meurer, Atlantes Qua 7/68 (62).
