        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).

      s. l., s.n., 1593 - Et de la tenue des Estats de Paris durant la Ligue en l'an 1593.

        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.

On y découvre la lente et patiente oeuvre de rachat des parcelles viticoles, les relations de parentés et le détail des fortunes (avec notamment tout le détail pittoresque du mobilier, tel qu'on le relève, au hasard, dans tel contrat de mariage : serviettes, essuie-mains, nappes, une "coëtte remplie de plumes", cuillers, "une poille à frire neuve", coffre de bois, outils : "fausilles", râteau, etc.) Sans prétendre à l'exhaustivité, on signalera les dates d'une partie des documents sur parchemin : Un acte juridique manuscrit sur vélin daté de l'année 1593 / Acte sur vélin daté de "May 1608" / Acte notarié sur vélin daté du 24 août 1611 /Un acte juridique manuscrit sur vélin daté de l'année 1618 / Acte notarié sur vélin daté du 7 avril 1620 / Actes sur vélin datés de 1620 et 1628, acte d'achat Vélin 1659 / Acte d'achat sur vélin 1664 / Actes sur vélin datés de 1670, 1675, 1704 / Acte de mariage vélin 1728 / Acte sur vélin daté du 16 décembre 1739 autorisant un héritier à renoncer à la "constitution dottale" pour "s'en tenir à l'institution d'héritier" / Vélin daté de 1744 / Contrat de Mariage sur vélin, daté du 13 mai 1744, conclu entre Bernard Dumeyniou, habitant de la paroisse de Tauriac et de Pétronille Pannis / Vélin 1747 / Achat du 20 Août 1749 / Vélin 1750 / Acte d'achat sur Vélin 1763 / Vélin 1768 Langue: Français [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        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.

        Commentarius de Praecipuis Divinationum Generibus.

      Frankfurt apud Andrae Wecheli heredes, Claudium Marnium, & Ioan. Aubrium, 1593 - 8vo. pp [xxxii] 738 [l]. Roman, Italic and Greek letter, historiated woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, printer's device of unicorn with cornucopia on tp. and verso of last, two fold-out synoptic tables after preface, faded contemp MS ex libris at foot of t.p. of George Lindner. Slight age yellowing, a crisp and clean copy, contemp vellum over boards, blind ruled compartments on spine with title in ink, remains of ties, title and author inked on foreedge, all edges blue. Last edition published before Peucer's death, with a new, lengthy preface by the author. Going through four previous Latin editions, and later translated to French, "it seems to have been the most influential of his numerous writings which were concerned with the varied fields of medicine, astronomy, mathematics, natural history, and psychology", (Thorndike VI p. 493). On the whole the work approves of divination in natural circumstances - reading dreams, for instance, or the stars, but agrees with the Bible in condemning certain branches of divination related to demons and witchcraft. Peucer's bias is unflinchingly Protestant, denying the possibility of Miracles, and he attributing the successfulness of relics and invocations of saints to demons rather than divinity. "After discussing divination in general, he turns to oracles and theomancy, then to magic - which he thus incorrectly implies is a variety of divination, whereas the opposite is true - then to divination from entrails, to augury and aruspicina, to lot-casting under which he puts geomancy and divining from names and numbers and to dreams and their interpretation. Next he considers medical prognostications, meteorology and weather prediction, physiognomy and chiromancy, astrology, and last prodigies and portents" (Thorndike VI p. 495). He is highly suspicious of Alchemy as a purely devilish art on the one hand, but on the other entirely approving of Astrology - which he himself put to practice and considered essential to the study of medicine. 
Casper Peucer (1525 - 1602) was a prominent physician and scholar who studied with Melanchthon (and married his daughter) at the University of Wittenberg where he was appointed in turn professor of philosophy, mathematics, and medicine - his pupil John Garcaeus called Peucer the "most celebrated professor of mathematics in this academy". Peucer's religious views were influenced by his close relationship with Melanchthon, which deviated from the local Lutheranism in its Calvinist colourings, and when Melanchthon died in 1560 Peucer became a prominent religious authority. Although he climbed the academic ranks quickly, and gained appointment as physician to Augustus I, Elector of Saxony, his "Crypto-Calvinist" beliefs were his downfall. In 1574, letters discovered by his patron that expressed a desire to convert Augustus to Calvinism led to a twelve year imprisonment in Königstein Fortress, an experience he talks about at length in the introduction to the present work. After his release from prison in 1586, he became physician to the duke of Anhalf, where he remained until his death in 1602. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Chronica del famoso cavallero Cid ruy Diez Campeador

      \"El Cid\" With The Respected Editorial Revisions Of Lopez De Velorado[EL CID]. Chronica del famoso cavallero Cid ruy Diez Campeador. Burgos: Philippe de Junta y Juan Baptista Varesio, 1593.Sixth publication, with the respected editorial revisions of Lopez de Velorado;this edition is considered very true to the best original text and much better thanthe corrupted intervening editions. Folio. 318pp. Title page in red and black with woodcut coat of arms.Old vellum. Gently washed and sized. This edition is known for usual page spotting, here absent: text is generally fresh and clean. Title page has some restoration, affecting three letters. Very well margined. Overall a very good copy in an appropriate old binding. Housed in a custom quarter brown morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped.Early editions of the Chronicles (or History) of the eleventh century knight El Cid are quite rare. The book is part of the general chronicles and legends of Spain: this dealing with the exploits of the valorous knight who freed Valencia from the Moors. In the twelfth century his adventures are first chronicled in Poema de mio Cid. Further stories and ballads build on the legend through the fourteenth century until El Cid has been glorified into a hero of knightly and Christian virtue and patriotic zeal.The most famous retellings outside of Spain are Southey in English 1808 and, of course, Corneille in French in his famous play of 1637.The text at hand is an excellent study of the manners and customs of the era of the Knights of Spain; highly sought after by bibliophiles and appreciated by historians.HBS 66533.$10,000

In her left hand she holds an opened book and a palm leaf. Her feet rest on the globe; the garland of fruit which surrounds her shows a ribbon with a motto in Greek: 'Aletheia Pandamator', i.e. 'Allmighty Truth'.

Remains of his work survive in Festus; J.J. Scaliger, 1540-1609, produced a highly acclaimed edition in 1575. He was praised for his success at completing blank portions of the Farnese manuscript. The editor uses both Paulus Diaconus and Festus for a reconstruction of the text in strict alphabetical order, from A to V; Bernays tells us that the 216 pages with the 'Castigationes' of Scaliger are 'unverändert abgedruckt' in this edition of 1593 (Bernays p. 279). Scaliger's notes are followed by the notes of lesser gods, but nevertheless 'docti viri'. Ad 2: Asconius Pedianus, probably 3-88 A.D, produced for his sons a historical commentary on a number of the orations of the Roman politician/orator Cicero. Francois Hotman, 1524-1590, was a French protestant jurist and author) (Provenance: Engraved bookplate of Jonkheer Henri de Brauw, depicting his coat of arms) (Collation: Festus: q - 2q8, a - v8 x8 (minus x8 blank); A - V8 X2; 2A - 2E8 2F2.
