        De Clandestinis Coniugiis Libellus [bound with] De Pace Religiosa

      1594. Monner, Basilius [1500-1566]. De Clandestinis Coniugiis Libellus. [Erfurt: Typis Martini Wittelij : Impensis Otthonis a Risuuick], 1594. 78, [1] ff. [Bound with] Schilter, Johann. De Pace Religiosa Liber Singularis: Accesserunt Acta, Consilia, Responsa & Similia hoc Argumentum Illustrantia. Strasbourg: Sumptibus J. Reinh. Dulsseckeri, 1700.

Later annotations to front pastedown and free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine. * First editions. Monner, a professor of law at the University of Jena, offers a Protestant critique of clandestinity, a matrimonial impediment in canon law. It holds that a marriage is valid only if it is conducted in the presence of witness and a priest or deacon. Schilter, a Ratskonsulent in Frankfurt and professor of law at the University of Strassburg, was a sophisticated jurist and a pioneering scholar of comparative law and legal history. De Pace Religiosa is an analysis of the Peace of Augsburg (1555), which effectively settled the Thirty Years War and established the legal groundwork for two co-existing confessions (Catholicism and Lutheranism) in the German states of the Holy Roman Empire.

        Les Tenures du Monsieur Littleton, Ouesque Certaine Cases Addes

      1594. Littleton, Sir Thomas [1402-1481]. West, William [fl. 1568-1594], Editor.

Contemporary calf, blind rules and large central arabesques flanked by initials to center of boards, rebacked retaining spine with raised bands, clasps lacking, endpapers renewed. Some scratches and nicks, edges of boards mended, hinges cracked. Some toning to text, light browning to outer margins, edgewear to preliminaries and final few leaves. Wide margins, annotations to most leaves, early owner signature (Henry Bradsharve) to center of title page. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases. The annotations in this copy are mostly case references, but many are interpretive; some are case references. Holdsworth, A History of English Law II:573.

Contents generally very good, clean and complete, with a few small faults: the title page to vol. I a little worn and marked with the lower corner tip missing but not affecting any lettering, a few pages very lightly stained; pp. 18-32 with a tear/chip at the base of the gutter with slight loss of a few letters; but lost letters replaced in contemporary autograph, this may have been a binding fault as these pages are not quite straight with a few marginal notes slightly shaved.

        Das vierdte Buch von der neuwen Welt... [bound with:] Americæ das Fünffte buch

      Frankfurt: Johann Feyrabend, 1594, 1594-1595. 2 parts in one volume, folio. (13 x 9 1/8 inches). Title pages, and two section titles to both parts with pasted on paper panels bearing the titles, all within an engraved surround (as issued), 1 full-page engraving of arms. 2 folding engraved maps [the 1st: Burden 83], 1 half-page portrait of Christopher Columbus, 2 half-page engraved emblematic illustrations, 46 half-page engraved illustrations, woodcut headpieces, all with period hand colouring. Expertly bound to style in 16th century vellum. First edition in German of the first two parts of Benzoni's noted history of the European conquest of America: this copy with extraordinary full period hand colouring. A very fine copy of the German edition of Parts IV and V of De Bry's celebrated Grand Voyages, here with the plates and title pages with remarkable contemporary hand colouring. In these two parts, De Bry reprints the first two sections of Girolamo Benzoni's work on the Spanish conquest of the West Indies, which was first published in Italian in Venice in 1565 under the title Historia del Mondo Nuovo. The De Bry edition is notable for its spectacular illustrations and its fine maps of the Indies. The illustrations are comprised as follows: Part IV with 24 coloured plates plus two half-page coloured plates in the text (one showing Columbus's landing), plus a coloured folding map of the Caribbean; Part V with 22 coloured plates plus a half-page coloured portrait of Columbus, plus a folding coloured map of Mexico. The three parts that make up De Bry's rendition of Benzoni (the first two of which are present here) record the events surrounding Columbus's discovery, relations with Native Americans, atrocities committed by Indians and Europeans, Pizarro's exploits in Peru, etc. Chauveton's anti-Spanish slant provided De Bry with the gory details of Spanish barbarity which are brought to life in the meticulous engravings that illustrate this volume. De Bry's sensationally illustrated edition of Benzoni has stood as a solid landmark of illustrated Americana. Such scenes as Columbus' meeting with Ferdinand and Isabella, or the Spanish atrocities toward the Peruvian Indians, though not based on first hand experience, have survived the centuries largely for their compelling visual rendition of events. The first part includes a detailed and handsome folding map of the West Indies, "Occidentalis Americae partis...Anno MDXCIIII," which depicts the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico from northern Florida to the South American coast. The second part contains a folding map of Mexico, "Hispanae Novae sive Magnae, recens et vera descriptio." Theodor De Bry " was born in 1528 and died in 1598, after having published Parts I to VI of the Great Voyages. He was a skillful engraver, and many of the plates in these parts were from his own burin ... After the death of Theodor De Bry the series was continued by his widow and two sons, Johann Theodor and Johann Israel De Bry, who in 1599 issued Parts VII and VIII, and in 1602, Part IX. With this part it is presumed the publishers intended to close the series, as it bears the title: Nona & Postrema Pars" (Church). This part was first published in both Latin and German between 1590 and 1595. At the time this work was published, hand-colouring was an expensive luxury applied only to works that were intended for the highest echelons of society, either as commissions or as gifts. The colouring in the present example is the work of a professional, and the work would clearly have originally resided in one of the great libraries of Europe.

        Il Segretario. Dialogo nel qual non sol si tratta dell'ufficio del Segretario, e del modo del compor Lettere ma sono sparsi infiniti Concetti alla Retorica, alla Loica & alle Morali pertinenti.

      appresso Ruberto Megietti,, in Venetia, 1594 - In-4° (207x151mm), pp. (22), 186, (2), legatura coeva p. pergamena flessibile con titolo manoscritto verticalmente in antico al dorso. Alcuini disegni antichi al piatto anteriore; una bordura e un disegno vergati da antica mano al piatto di tergo. Impresa editoriale al frontespizio con due galli, uno dei quali becca chicchi di miglio e, al centro, la pianta con le pannocchie, il tutto entro cornice figurata con motto "Non comedetis fruges mendacii". Testatine e capilettera xilografici istoriati, dedica a stampa dell'autore al Cardinale Ascanio Colonna. Ampio indice preliminare. Antica nota di possesso al risguardo. Aloni al margine inferiore del risguardo, del frontespizio e delle prime cc. Sparsi aloni e fioriture; alcune gore alla legatura. Più che discreto esemplare. Prima edizione di questo trattato composto dall'autore del "Pastor Fido"(che a lungo era stato segretario presso varie corti) sull'ufficio del segretario e sull'arte e la tecnica del comporre le lettere, steso in forma di dialogo. "L'amara diagnosi sulla reificante condizione moderna del mestiere delle lettere è al centro anche del filosofeggiante Segretario, il trattato sull'arte cancelleresca edito nel 1594. Pensato in origine come una Lettera delle lettere di corredo esplicativo alla sua antologia epistolare, l'opera ben presto si espanse, significativamente in coincidenza con l'abbandono del servizio estense, in un concettoso dialogo che affronta, oltre a una minuziosa e interessante precettistica retorica, anche il problema della dignità dell'intellettuale, nel suo gioco di rapporti con il sapere e il potere e nella sua degradante realtà di uno scrivere espropriato "come altrui vuole". Pur nella consapevolezza scettica della negatività dei tempi, il Guarini non rinuncia alla ricerca di uno spazio anche minimo di autonomia per il letterato: emerge così la proposta, indubbiamente moderna, di uno statuto professionale da ricercarsi in un ruolo alto e specialistico di tecnico della persuasione e del consenso. In tale direzione è da leggersi anche la complessa discussione epistemologica sulla natura e il fine della retorica che introduce il dialogo, dove la scelta degli interlocutori (Girolamo Zeno, Sebastiano Venier, Iacopo Contarini, Francesco Moresini) e il luogo dell'urbana conversazione, il celebrato "Mezzado" contariniano, raduno civile dei "più eccellenti ingegni" della Repubblica (p. 70), denunciano apertamente la volontà polemica di fungere da osservatorio critico da cui giudicare valori e disvalori del modello cortigiano."

        Orbis Terrarum Typus De Integro Multis in Locis Emendatus

      Amsterdam, 1594. ONE OF THE FIRST MAPS TO SHOW THE DOUBLE HEMISPHERICAL FORM AFTER RUMOLD MERCATOR'S WORLD MAP OF 1587 AND THE FIRST MAP TO USE DECORATIVE PICTORIAL BORDERS Engraving: 17" x 23" References: Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 187. At the time of its publication, Plancius's large-scale, overwhelmingly detailed and decorative map of the world represented innovations in mapmaking on several levels. A minister of the Reformed Church in Holland, Plancius became an expert on navigation and on Dutch explorations to the Indies. He was one of the first to appreciate the significance of earlier Portuguese charts, and in 1602 was appointed official cartographer to the Dutch East India Company. As such, he had access to privileged information regarding the latest geographical discoveries, information not available to many of his competitors. This world map was first issued separately in 1594 or shortly thereafter, engraved by Jan van Doetecum, a craftsman of great skill whose signature appears in the lower left-hand corner and who was associated with a number of Plancius's maps. The two main terrestrial hemispheres are based on those in Plancius's earlier world map of 1590, updated by geographical details and with the addition of two celestial spheres. Korea is drawn as a peninsula for the first time ever on a map, and Japan is shown with an improved, if still not entirely correct, outline. New Guinea, which had previously been represented as a separate island, is now joined to the southern continent named "Magallanica". The elaborate pictorial borders were inspired by drawings in the works of Theodore de Bry, published a few years earlier, and were another of Plancius's innovations that established a pattern of cartographical decoration that lasted for over a century. Symbolical female figures, landscape vignettes, and highly animated illustrations of animals indigenous to each area represent the regions of the world. Included are elephants and camels, a giraffe, a unicorn, an ostrich, the footless bird of paradise, parrots, snakes, monkeys, a rhinoceros, a crocodile, and a giant armadillo. Plancius's map had a widespread influence on other mapmakers and is rarely available to collectors.. Book.

        [Paris] Satyre menippee de la vertu du catholicon d'Espagne. Et de la tenue des estatz de Paris

      S.l.: S.n., 1594. relié. In 8 (10,5x16cm). L’édition de 1593 donnée pour être l’originale est en fait de 1594, comme toutes les éditions à la date de 1593 (elles contiennent en effet toutes des événements se rapportant à la date de 1594). Le tirage de la première édition n’ayant pas été suffisant, il en fut fait de nombreuses réimpressions en 1594. Cependant le premier texte de la Vertu du Catholicon fut bien édité pour la première fois en 1593 à Tours mais il ne contenait que 15ff. Toutes les éditions avec plusieurs textes sont plus tardives. Brunet V, 143. Rare. Particularités de cette impression : le premier texte sur le Catholicon n'est pas paginé. Plein Parchemin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume. Une mouillure pâle sur les premiers feuilllets, allant s'estompant. Notes du possesseur à la plume noire sur les pages de garde, qui donne notamment une table des matières. Travail de vers du feuillet 51 au feuillet 64, sans gravité. Très célèbre pamphlet, satirique, contre la ligue et les ligueurs, ses chefs et ses partisans, qui se réunirent à Paris en 1593. Cette édition se compose donc de la vertu du catholicon, de l’abrégé de la farce des estas de la Ligue, des 7 harangues, de l'épître du sieur d'd'Angoulvent, du trépas de l’asne ligueur, et enfin du discours sur l'explication du mot De Higuiero Inferno. On attribue le Catholicon à Pierre le Roy et les vers à Jean Passerat et Pierre Rapin, les Harangues à J. Gillot. Cette réunion d’insignes et talentueux lettrés confèrent une portée et une valeur très littéraire au pamphlet (la Satire connut des éditions jusqu’au XIXe avec succès). 'A la fois une comédie, un pamphlet et un coup d’Etat, la Satyre Ménippee fraya la route a Henry IV vers le trône' (P. Larousse).
