        Widerlegung Des Calvinischen Büchleins, so in vergangener Herbstmeß wider die zur Christlichen Visitation der Kirchen und Schulen im Churfürstenthumb Sachsen verfaste vier Artickel durch den Truck ausgesprenget worden.

      Wittenberg, Matthes Welack, 1593. Format: 8°.. [16], 224 S.. Mit in Schwarz und Rot gedrucktem Titel und ganzseitigem Holzschnitt.. Flexibler Pergamentband mit vier grünen Bindebändern (teils fragmentarisch) und hs. Rückentitel Pergament stärker gewellt, an Kanten aufgegangen, etwas sperrig.. Erste Ausgabe. *** Erste Ausgabe der seltenen Streitschrift des lutherischen Theologen und Professors an der Universitäten in Marburg und Wittenberg Ägidius Hunnius des Älteren (1550-1603). Er "nimmt unter den streng lutherischen Theologen der zweiten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts eine der ersten Stellen ein ... An gelehrter Gründlichkeit und Scharfsinn übertraf er seine gleichzeitigen Parteigenossen, an Verdienst ist er sogar der Dritte nach Luther genannt worden" (ADB). In seiner Schrift wandte sich Hunnius vehement gegen den Calvinismus und begründete damit die lutherische Frühorthodoxie und seine Lehre des "Gnadenuniversalismus". Eine zweite Ausgabe erschien 1600 bei Georg Müller in Wittenberg (VD16 H 6142). Von besonderem Interesse ist der große Textholzschnitt, der Christus als jugendlichen Salvator mit der Weltkugel zeigt, auf der man Adam und Eva am Baum der Erkenntnis mit Mond und Sonne sieht. Christi Hand ist zum Segensgestus erhoben, während sein Antlitz von der Strahlenaureole hinterleuchtet wird. Auf Wolkenbänken umgeben ihn 10 Putti, die die Arma Christi, die Marterwerkzeuge seines Martyriums präsentieren. Über seinem Haupte schwebt der Heilige Geist als Taube und ganz oben ist - der Trinität entsprechend - Gottvater als drei hebräische Buchstaben dargestellt. Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt, wenige Wasserränder, insgesamt wohlerhalten. - Vorgebunden: Chemnitz, Martin, Polycarp Leyser und Urbanus Rhegius. Enchiridion D. Martini Chemnitii. Darinnen die fürnembste Häuptstück der Christlichen Lehr, durch Frag vnd Antwort, auß Gottes Wort eynfältig vnd gründlich erkläret werden, Wie man fürsichtiglich, und ohne Ergernuß von den fürnembsten Artickeln Christlicher Lehr reden soll. Frankfurt, Johann Spieß, 1593. [21], 534, [2] S. Mit in Rot und Schwarz gedrucktem Titel und großer Holzschnitt-Druckermarke am Ende. - VD16 C 2180. Die kompendiarische Darlegung seiner Dogmatik anlässlich der Reformation des Herzogtums Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel erschien zuerst unter dem deutschen Titel "Die furnemsten hauptstiick der Christi Lehre, wie darin die Pastores examiniret und unterwiessen werden, 1569, Wolfenbüttel". Bis 1608 immer wieder aufgelegt, wurde sie zu einem Kernstück der orthodoxen Lutheraner der zweiten Generation. VD16 H 6141. Nicht im STC (vgl. aber STC 424).

        Martini Antonii Delrii ex Societate Iesu Syntagma tragoediae latinae : in tres partes distinctum. --

      1593 - Materia: Tragedias de Seneca, escritores antiguos latinos. Publicación: Antuerpiae : ex officina Plantiniana, apud viduam & loannen Moretum, 1593. 1ª edición Descripción fisica : [16], 188 p.; 315 p. Encuadernación pergamino de época con rotulo del titulo en el lomo. Notas: El tomo I contiene la vida de Seneca, versos y maximas, fragmentos de tragedias perdidas etc. El tomo II: contiene las tragedias de Seneca: Medea, Edipo, Thebais, Hipolito, Hercules furioso, Hercules en el Eta, Tiestes, Las troyanas, Agamenon. Conservación: Muy buen estado, pequeñisimo punto de polilla que solo afecta a l borde del margen.Falto de la parte tercera que son comentarios e indices de la obra. Martin Antonio del Rio, es un personaje relevante en la difusión de las tragedias de Seneca entre los escritores europeos del barroco. A su condición de personalidad española en Flandes, erudito universitario de carácter europeo y gran bibliógrafo, se une un factor tan notable como es su pertenencia a la Compañía de Jesús y su entrega a la interpretación y difusión de las tragedias latinas. El Syntagma fue leído con profusión en los colegios de los jesuitas. El libro trata de forma particular sobre la tragedia latina, pero Martín del Rios aportó numerosos datos sobre la griega, por razón de justificar posibles fuentes de las obras de Seneca, aunque su critica se preocupa fundamentalmente de analogías formales.

Discrete paper repairs to base of title and A2. Some worming to lower margin. Occasional ink underlining, else a crisp copy. The first edition of Elias Hasenmuller's history of the Jesuit Order, with an preface by Polykarp Leyser (1552-1610). Hasenmuller's experiences in training as a novice in the Society of Jesus, combined with his conversion to the Lutheran reformed Church in 1587, led to the composition of this critical account. As one of the earliest accounts of the vanguard of the counter-reformation composed by an ex-Jesuit, it was unsurprisingly swiftly translated into the vernacular (Frankfurt, 1594). Adams H 80..

Contemporary yapp vellum. An attractive copy of an important political text and Shakespearian source which was first published in 1568. The particular significance of Goslicius' book lies in its bearing upon Polonius, the well-meaning counsellor in Hamlet. Shakespeare must have been thinking of the Polishman Goslicius' book when he put into Polonius' mouth the sententious utterances of e.g. the famous lines "neither a borrower nor a lender be ."

        Centuria thesium de hasione et hasibili qualitate [...].

      O. O. u. Dr., 1593.. 20 unnum. Bll. Halbpergamentband. 4to.. Eine der umfangreichsten Fassungen des 16. Jhs. dieser auch ins Deutsche übersetzten Scherzdisputation, die erste in der "Hasenliteratur". "Zu Beginn des letzten Jahrzehnts des 16. Jahrhunderts erschien unter dem Titel 'Theses de hasione et hasibili qualitate' eine in der Art einer akademischen Disputation aufgemachte kleine Schrift ohne Ort und Datum [...] Wir kennen bisher weder ihren Verfasser noch den Druckort [...] Der Inhalt - in einem korrekten, fast eleganten Latein geschrieben - ist allzu zeitkritisch, um nur als ein Studentenulk aufgefaßt zu werden. Man möchte hinter ihm als Autor eher einen humorbegabten Gelehrten als einen Studenten sehen, der Sinn für Spaß hatte, aber in erster Linie doch Schwächen der Zeit aufzeigen und auf seine Weise einen Beitrag zur beliebten Narrenliteratur liefern wollte" (Lindner 288). Bis 1741 wurde die Schrift mindestens 25mal aufgelegt. - Papierbedingt durchgehend gebräunt. - Erman/Horn I, 7416. Nicht im VD 16. Nicht bei Hayn/Gotendorf.

        Hemispheriu Ab Aequinoctiali Linea, Ad Circulu Poli Arctici...ad Circuli Poli Antartici

      Antwerp, 1593. 320 x 523mm., double-page engraved world map on an equidistant polar projection, fine dark impression. A RARE MAP OF THE WORLD ON THE TWIN HEMISPHERICAL POLAR PROJECTION: A TESTAMENT TO ONE OF THE GREAT CARTOGRAPHIC RIVALRIES. This unusual map appeared in Cornelis de Jode's 1593 edition of the Speculum, an atlas initiated by his father, Gerard, in 1578. Although Cornelis' world map did not use the cordiform projection preferred by his father, it did employ a similar border scheme of windheads and clouds. Gerard De Jode was a contemporary-and rival- of Abraham Ortelius. The publication of his original Speculum was subjected to repeated delays in the granting of the royal privilege probably instigated by Ortelius himself, who may have used his important connections to ensure that his Theatrum was launched well before De Jode's atlas. In spite of its attractive maps, the Speculum did not sell well, and few copies were recorded. The second edition of the Speculum, revised and enlarged, was started by Gerard de Jode before his death in 1591, and completed by Cornelis, who prepared ten new maps including the presnet world map, North America, China, Australia and Alaska. Despite the difficulties surrounding the publication of the Speculum it must have had a good reputation, and Petrus Montanus mentions it in the same breath with Mercator's Atlas and Ortelius' Theatrum in his preface to Pieter Kaerius' Germaniae inferior' (Wardington Catalogue).

        Satyre Ménippée de la vertu du Catholicon d'Espagne.

      s. l., s.n., 1593 - Et de la tenue des Estats de Paris durant la Ligue en l'an 1593. Augmenté outre les précédentes impressions, tant de l'interprétation du mot de Higuiero d'infierno, & qui en est l'Autheur, que du supplément ou suite du catholicon. Avec les portraits de deux Charlatans, du Seigneur Agnosie, & la procession Martialle, & singerie de la Ligue. Plus le regret funèbre d'une Damoiselle de Paris sur la mort de son Asne Ligueur. Le plan de la Satire Ménippée appartient à Pierre le Roy, chanoine de Rouen et aumônier du cardinal de Bourbon. Les sieurs Nicolas Rapin, les poètes Jean Passerat et Gilles Durand, Florent Chrestien en rédigèrent chacun une partie ; Pierre Pithou, jurisconsulte, revit l’ensemble et amena l'oeuvre à son point de perfection. Les auteurs voulaient empêcher l'infante d'Espagne de devenir reine de France et soutenir Henri de Navarre. Ils voulaient défendre dans une oeuvre commune, les vrais intérêts de la France, qui voulait rester catholique et indépendante. Imprimé sur la Copie de l'année 1593. Très rare. Édition de la même date que la première. Elle est orné de 2 grandes figures sur bois repliées (La Procession de la Ligue et La Tenue des États) et de 4 petits bois dans le texte.

        Ratisbona (Regensburg)

      Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the ?Great Voyages.?Born and trained in Basel , Switzerland, in the early 1600?s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry?s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper.?Topographia Germaniae? was published around 1680 in partnership with Zeiller Martin who wrote the text. ?Topographia Germaniae? was one of the larges and most comprehensive publishing?s of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, Topographia Germaniae is comprised of 30 volumes with more than 2,000 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries.This engraving, "Ratisbona" measures 12.5" x 15.5" and is in excellent condition with a light pencil marking on the lower right corner. This map of Ratisbona, now called Regensburg, illustrates the Bavarian city in an areal and panoramic view. Regensburg is located on the confluence of the Danube and Regen rivers. History of the area dates back to the Stone Age. In 179 Romans built a fort on the site of the "Old City" which became an important Roman camp. Regensburg also has a history of governance as it became a free city in 1245, part of the Duchy of Bavaria in 1486 and independent again in 1496 (granted by the Holy Roman Emperor). This map includes a legend that labels numerous important locales within the city including churches, monasteries and other government buildings. As illustrated on the map, the coat of arms of Regensburg is still the double keys crossed.

        Horæ Recreationis, sive Facetiarum et Apophtegematum Centuriae II. In usum inclyta Academia Witebergenis Italice discit, collectæ à Catharino Dulci

      Witebergæ [i.e., Wittenberg]: Ex Officina Cratoniana, 1593. 12mo. Interleaved. A-C8 D1. INCOMPLETE, with 25 leaves only (of 40); lacking D2 through F8. Vellum, new endpapers. Bookplate. One interleaf bears manuscript translations into French of two of the anecdotes, in what appears to be an 17th- or early 18th-century hand. NOT IN OCLC; not in Hunt . Rare collection of sayings, anecdotes and jokes written and compiled from Francesco Guicciardini by Catharinus Dulcis, for young students of Italian. Dulcis was an itinerant scholar of languages, and evidently the first professor of French and Italian at the University of Marburg, who published his during a sojourn in Wittenburg in the 1590s. No copies of any edition of this book are recorded in OCLC, and a thorough search of online catalogues throughout Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy, and France, and Switzerland, has turned up only a single copy (University of Jena) of this peculiar and very interesting book - presumably the first by Dulcis - printed in Wittenberg, whose university provided a home to Martin Luther and Philip Melanchton - and where Prince Hamlet himself studied before returning to Elsinore upon his father's death. The dedicatee of Dulcis' little book makes this Danish-Wittenburg connection all the more intriguing: Dulcis dedicates his book to the learned nobleman, Doctor Holger Rosenkrantz, of Denmark. Albeit incomplete, a genuinely rare and fascinating book

        Die Statt Neuburg an der Donav (Neuburg on the Danube)

      Mathias Merian the Elder (1593-1650) was one of the most prominent members of the leading print publishing family of 17th-century Germany, known throughout Europe for his engravings of cityscapes and landscapes, his scientific books, and his editions of the noted series of travel books, the ?Great Voyages.?Born and trained in Basel , Switzerland, in the early 1600?s he began studying drawing, engraving and etching in Zurich with engraver Friedrich Meyer. Merian joined the Frankfurt publishing house of Johann Theodor de Bry in 1616 and, the following year, he married de Bry?s daughter Maria Magdalena. Merian gained his greatest acclaim as head of the family publishing house following the death of his father-in-law in 1623. He rapidly and almost single-handedly built up the house to become one of the most important in Europe, etching most of the plates himself until about 1645, when he increasingly relied upon the help of a growing staff of assistants and pupils, among them Wenceslaus Hollar, Rudolf and Conrad Meyer of Zurich, and his sons Matthaus and Casper.?Topographia Germaniae? was published around 1680 in partnership with Zeiller Martin who wrote the text. ?Topographia Germaniae? was one of the larges and most comprehensive publishing?s of its time with engravings of major European cities and historically important locations, each expertly engraved by Merian and his sons. In total, Topographia Germaniae is comprised of 30 volumes with more than 2,000 individually detailed engravings with maps and views of cities, towns, castles, fortresses and monasteries.This engraving, "Die Statt Neuburg an der Donav" measures 12.25" x 15.5" and is in very good condition with light staining throughout, ink marking on the back of the top left margin, and pencil marking on the lower right corner. This map illustrates the city of Neuburg, which lies on the Danube River in Upper Bavaria, Germany. Neuburg was the capital "Palatine-Neuburg" under the Holy Roman Empire in 1505, with a ducal palace and fortified wall built in 1530-1545. This well detailed city view shows the city with along the Danube River, the second longest in Europe. The fortified walls are shown with armed guards and those on horseback. A legend at the bottom of the map notes important locations within the city including numerous churches, buildings, the fortified walls, mountains and changing topography.
