      Ex Officina Plantiniana, Antuerpiae - Amberes , 1594 - 1593 - - (*).Simplicium Medicamentorum ex novo orbe delatorum in Medicina usus est Historia; hispanico sermone duobus libris descripta a D. Nicolao Monardis, hispalensi medico. . 456 pp. y 3 hojas. La última con el emblemático grabado de la imprenta. El texto con numerosos grabados de plantas medicinales. Completo y conservado ejemplar encuadernado de época en piel. Lomera con nervios, florones y un tejuelo. =Garcia de Orta (Castelo de Vide, ca. 1500 — Goa, ca. 1568) fue un científico judío portugués del Renacimiento, médico, naturalista y explorador. Fue un pionero de la medicina tropical. La ocupación de Garcia de Orta en la India lo lleva extensamente por las costas occidentales de India, y mercadeó con especias y piedras preciosas, estableciendo contactos con otros mercaderes y médicos de muchas partes del sur de Asia y de las costas del océano Índico. Hablaba en portugués, castellano, hebreo, latín, griego y en árabe; y su obra muestra que también tenía conocimientos en persa, marathi, konkani, sánscrito y kannada. Tenía correspondencia y agentes que le enviaban semillas, planta, drogas y piedras preciosas. Evidentemente tenía un laboratorio y un jardín botánico. Su inestimable conocimiento de las especias orientales y de medicinas se revela en su única obra conocida, Colóquios dos simples e drogas he cousas medicinais da Índia , publicada en Goa en 1563. La primera edición de "Aromatum et simplicium aliquot medicamentorum apud Indos nascentium historia. " es de Amberes, 1567. En nuestra edición se suma la obra de Nicolás Monardes. Estas obras de García Da Orta y Nicolás Monardes en un mismo tomo son las obras más influyentes de la materia médica exótica del siglo XVI. Nicolás Bautista Monardes Alfaro (Sevilla, 1508 - Sevilla, 1588) fue un destacado médico y botánico español. Su trabajo más significativo fue Historia medicinal de las cosas que se traen de nuestras Indias Occidentales. En esta obra se propuso estudiar y experimentar con los productos y medicinas del Nuevo Mundo para explorar sus propiedades farmacológicas, aprovechando que Sevilla era el puerto de entrada al Viejo Mundo de las Indias Occidentales. Para ello cultivó en su huerto plantas americanas y describió por vez primera muchas especies como el cardo santo, la cebadilla, la jalapa, el sasafrás, el guayaco, la pimienta, la canela de Indias, el tabaco, el bálsamo de Tolú etc. Familiarizó a los europeos con la piña tropical, el cacahuete, el maíz, la batata, la coca o la zarzaparrilla. Su contribución a la farmacognosia fue muy relevante, como demuestra el enorme interés despertado por su obra: en poco más de cien años sus obras alcanzaron cuarenta y dos ediciones en seis idiomas. Fue el primer autor conocido en informar y describir el fenómeno de la Fluorescencia, entonces desconocido, en su libro Historia Medicinal (Sevilla, 1565), donde describe el extraño comportamiento de ciertas infusiones de Lignum nephriticum.

        Las Navas de Tolosa. Poema heroico

      1594 - The magnum opus of Mesa. 1594. Madrid. Por la biuda de P. Madrigal. 8vo (147 x 92 mm). 8 ff., 324 ff., 3 ff. Handsome light brown crushed morocco, signed Brugalla 1949, boards with gilt fillets and center pieces, all edges gilt, headbands, spine lettered and finely tooled in gilt. Slight soiling to title, overall a very fresh and clean copy, last 3 ff. with marginal restoration away from text. 5,000 $ First edition, the magnum opus of Cristobal de Mesa, a Spanish Jewish convert (c. 1559 – 1633), friend with Torquato Tasso, and with several other relevant Spanish literates and writers, including Miguel de Cervantes; his friendship with Tasso was, however, the alleged source of inspiration and inclination towards the epic. Mesa would later on translate Tasso´s Jerusalem Liberated into Spanish. The work narrates the battle of Las Navas de Tolosa, known in Arab history as the Battle of Al-Uqab, a crucial military engagement during the Reconquista, the Spanish medieval effort to conquer occupied Spain back from the Moors, where King Alfonso VIII of Castile and his allies (the Kings of Navarre, Aragon, and Portugal) met against the Berber Muhammad al-Nasir, fourth Almohad caliph in the last years of the 12th century and beginnings of the 13th. The battle was a decisive victory to the Christian coalition, and a heavy defeat for the Moors, which accelerated the crumbling down of their presence in the Iberian Peninsula. It is said that the Caliph had a guard of chained slaves surrounding him. Within the epic, Mesa gives room to dedicate to a love affair in the ranks of the Moors, between Abdalla and Xarifa.

        L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction [Jurisdiction] des Courts de la Maiestie.

      1594. First Edition of Crompton's Survey of the Courts [Crompton, Richard (d. 1599)]. L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction des Courts de la Maiestie de la Roygne: Nouelment Collect & Compose, Per R. Crompton del Milieu Temple Esquire, Apprentice del Ley. Si Seuris Index, Mitisis Corde Memento, Dicito, quae Possunt Dicta Decere Senem. London: In Aedibus Caroli Yetsweirti, 1594. [iv], 232 ff.

Woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, some leaves have faint dampspotting or edgewear. Small early owner initials and struck-through signatures to title page, one with burn-though, early annotations and underlining to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. $2,000. * First edition. Crompton was a bencher of the Middle Temple during the reign of Henry VIII and the author of several notable juristic works. L'Authoritie et Iurisdiction is considered to be his principal work. It is essentially a digest of the Year Books and other cases applicable to the subject. Turning to William Fulbecke's A Direction or Preparative to the Study of the Lawe (1600), we see that its value was recognized almost immediately: "Master Crompton has taken great paynes in this study, and his books are in every man's hands, which prooveth their generall allowance, his cases are very profitable, and apt for the title to which they are applyed, and so compendiously collected, that a man may by them in a few howers gaine great knowledge" (cited in Holdsworth). On a broader scale, Crompton offers legal justification for the creation of a rigidly hierarchical "natural" society governed by a powerful monarch. This attitude, articulated by Bodin among others, was shared by several conservatives in England and Europe during the Late Renaissance. Holdsworth, History of English Law IV: 212.

      Coloniae Agrippinae: Godefridum Kempensem , 1594 An extremely rare copy of Mercurius Gallogbelgicus - one of the earliest newsletters/periodicals, which appeared in the late sixteenth century. It was compiled by Michael ab Isselt, a dutch refugee in Cologne, and issued on a six monthly basis under the name of D M Jansonio. The name Mercurius chosen for association with Mercury, the swift messenger.

The final page has a torn side margin with loss, which has been repaired. The endpapers may have been replaced in an earlier repair - they are not new but are less toned than the rest of the work.

        Bussetsu Jizo bosatsu hosshin Innen Juokyo [trans.: The Buddha's Discourse on the Ten Kings of Karma and the Awakening of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva]

      Four double-page & 15 single-page illus. 30 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. patterned blue wrappers (rubbed), printed title label on upper cover, modern stitching. N.p.: 1594 [but most probably 18th century]. "The Ten Kings was actually written in China more than ten centuries after the Buddha's death and is not part of the traditional canon. This never diminished its popularity, however. There were many versions. This one, with its fifteen judges, is clearly based on the Chinese materials but may have been written in Japan (in Chinese, but with grammatical aids for Japanese readers) between the tenth and thirteenth centuries."-Keyes, Ehon. The Artist and the Book in Japan (NYPL), 5. This book, first published with woodcuts in 1594, went through many printings well into the 19th century. Our edition most closely corresponds to the Indiana University copy (number 5.2 in the bibliographical section of Keyes's book) which is dated "18th century or later." We believe it is an 18th-century printing based on the appearance of the original wrappers. Fine copy. ❧ Brown, Block Printing & Book Illustration in Japan, p. 22-"The book was written by the Chinese priest Zosen, and, according to the colophon in the Japanese edition, was published in China in the year 1582. Afterwards drawings were made from the Chinese originals by the Japanese priest Tokusen, and the work was republished in Bunroku 3, or 1594.".

        The Complete Angler. [Excellent Large Paper Bagster Edition]. or, Contemplative Man's Recreation: being a discourse on rivers, fish-ponds, fish, and fishing. In two parts: the first written by Mr. Isaac Walton the second by Charles Cotton, Esq. With the lives of the authors: and notes historical, critical, supplementary and explanatory by Sir John Hawkins, Knt.

      24 cm x 15 cm. VI, 512, [2] pages. Illustrated with 32 engravings by Philip Audinet, including portraits, fishing tackle and copper engravings of different fish, two large woodcuts, two engraved pages of music. Hardcover. Extraordinarily rebacked and restored original boards with 20th century spine. Gilt ornaments and wonderful spinelabel. Beautiful example of the rare Angler-companion in a tight and complete condition. This is the sought after large paper edition of Bagster. Izaak Walton (c. 1594 15 December 1683) was an English writer. Best known as the author of The Compleat Angler, he also wrote a number of short biographies that have been collected under the title of Walton's Lives. The Compleat Angler was first published in 1653, but Walton continued to add to it for a quarter of a century. It is a celebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse 6 verses were quoted from John Dennys's 1613 work The Secrets of Angling. It was dedicated to John Offley, his most honoured friend. There was a second edition in 1655, a third in 1661 (identical with that of 1664), a fourth in 1668 and a fifth in 1676. In this last edition the thirteen chapters of the original had grown to twenty-one, and a second part was added by his friend and brother angler Charles Cotton, who took up Venator where Walton had left him and completed his instruction in fly fishing and the making of flies. Walton did not profess to be an expert with a fishing fly the fly fishing in his first edition was contributed by Thomas Barker, a retired cook and humorist, who produced a treatise of his own in 1659 but in the use of the live worm, the grasshopper and the frog "Piscator" himself could speak as a master. The famous passage about the frog, often misquoted as being about the worm"use him as though you loved him, that is, harm him as little as you may possibly, that he may live the longer"appears in the original edition. The additions made as the work grew did not affect the technical part alone quotations, new turns of phrase, songs, poems and anecdotes were introduced as if the author, who wrote it as a recreation, had kept it constantly in his mind and talked it over point by point with his many friends. There were originally only two interlocutors in the opening scene, "Piscator" and "Viator" but in the second edition, as if in answer to an objection that "Piscator" had it too much in his own way in praise of angling, he introduced the falconer, "Auceps," changed "Viator" into "Venator" and made the new companions each dilate on the joys of his favourite sport. The best-known old edition of the Angler is J. Major's (2nd ed., 1824). The book was edited by Andrew Lang in 1896, followed by many other editions. (Wikipedia)

Willem Janszoon Blaeu also abbreviated to Willem Jansz. Blaeu, was a Dutch cartographer, atlas maker and publisher. Blaeu was born at Uitgeest or Alkmaar. As the son of a well-to-do herring salesman, he was destined to succeed his father in the trade, but his interests lay more in Mathematics and Astronomy. Between 1594 and 1596 as a student of the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe he qualified as an instrument and globe maker. In 1600 he discovered the second ever variable star now known as P Cygni. Once he returned to Holland, he made country maps and world globes, and as he possessed his own printing works, he was able to regularly produce country maps in an atlas format, some of which appeared in the Atlas Novus published in 1635. In 1633 he was appointed map-maker of the East Indian Company. He was also an editor and published works of Willebrord Snell, Descartes, Adriaan Metius, Roemer Visscher, Gerhard Johann Vossius, Barlaeus, Hugo Grotius, Vondel and the historian and poet Pieter Corneliszoon Hooft. He died in Amsterdam. He had two sons, Johannes and Cornelis Blaeu, who continued their father's mapmaking and publishing business after his death in 1638. Prints of the family's works are still sold today. Original maps are rare collector items. The Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer of Delft (1632-1675) holds a position of great honor among map historians. Several of his paintings illustrate maps hanging on walls or globes standing on tables or cabinets. Vermeer painted these cartographical documents with such detail that it is often possible to identify the actual maps. Evidently, Vermeer was particularly attached to a Willem Blaeu - Balthasar Florisz van Berckenrode map of Holland and West Friesland, as he represented it as a wall decoration in three of his paintings... Though no longer extant, the map's existence is known from archival sources and second edition published by Willem Blaeu in 1621, titled "Nova et Accurata Totius Hollandiae Westfriesiaeq. Topographia, Descriptore Balthazaro Florentio a Berke[n]rode Batavo". Vermeer must have had a copy at his disposal (or the earlier one published by Van Berckenrode). Around 1658 he showed it as a wall decoration in his painting "Officer and Laughing Girl", which depicts a soldier in a large hat sitting with his back to viewer, talking with a smiling girl who holds a glass in her hand. Bright sunlight bathes the girl and the large map on the wall. Vermeer's gift for realism is evidenced by the fact that the wall map, mounted on linen and wooden rods, is identifiable as Blaeu's 1621 map of Holland and West Friesland. He captures all of its characteristic design, decoration, and geographic content." His maps formed the bulk of the Atlas Maior, that became a collector's item in Amsterdam. One of Blaeu's globes was purchased at auction by Maarten Magielse, a Dutch salesman, for the record price of 60.000 euro, about 80.000. Magielse is now renting it to the globe museum in Vienna, where it is being exhibited. (Wikipedia)

Teils der "Histoire" (nach S. 128) mit fortfahrender Paginierung von derselben Hand eingefügt worden (der Hinweis dazu steht bereits am Vorsatzbl. d. 1. Teils), welche die (schon damals!) fehlenden Texteile vom Epitre handschriftlich wiedergeben. Adams M-901 (EA. v. 1594) - Die "Histoire des derniers troubles" beginnt mit der Herrschaft der Tres-Chrestiens Roys (Francois I, Henry II, Francois II ...) und reicht bis zum Friedensvertrag von Veruins unter Heinrich IV. Den Edicts (alle von Heinrich IV erlassen) folgt Histoire des guerres entre les deux maisons de France et dEspagne, die mit dem Vertrag von Veruins und dem Tod Philippes II aus Spanien 1598 endeten. Die Erstausgabe des damals schon in dieser Gestalt verfassten Werkes erschien in Lyon 1594-95. Laut Graesse ist der 5. Teil der "Histoire" nicht von Mathieu (vgl. Graesse IV, 443). Hauser schreibt hingegen, daß es zahlreiche nicht autorisierte Eingriffe fremder Hand gab (vgl. Hauser 1448). In einem handschriftlichen Vermerk (von alter Hand) auf eingefügten Vorsatzbll. wird vorl. Buch Michel HURAULT de lHospital zugeschrieben, einem Enkel des Chanceliers Michel de lHospital von Belesbat und Fa, der ihm seine Bibliothek vererbte. Die Verbindung zwischen Henri IV und dem Hause Belesbat ist belegt durch seine häufigen Besuche (die noch zu Navarras Zeiten begannen), und die nicht ohne einen gewissen Einfluß der schönen Henriette dEntragues standen. Dies könnte zu der Annahme führen, Hurault de lHospital hätte unter Pseudonym geschrieben. Auch Hauser belegt die Freundschaft zwischen Pierre Mathieu (1563-1621) und Heinrich IV, zu dessen Historiographen er 1594 ernannt wurde. Die im Buch enthaltenen handschriftlichen Hinweise auf Michel HURAULT de lHospital geben erneut ein Rätsel über die Autorenschaft dieses nicht uninteressanten Werkes auf.

        Historia della guerra fra Turchi, et Persiani, di Gio. Thomaso Minadoi da Rovigo, divisa in libri nove. Nella quale chiaramente si scuoprono la causa, I progressi, e tutti gli accidenti, e fattioni in quella avvenuti. Con una descrittone di tutte le cose pertinenti alla religione, alle forze, al governo, & al paese del Regno de Persiani?

      Venice: Andrea Muschio & Barezzo Barezzi, 1594. Hardcover. 4to. pp. [32], 383, [25]. With a 2 page engraved map. Text is printed in Italic type with decorative woodcut initials and head and tail pieces. Bound in modern quarter leather over 19th century marbled boards. Remnants of an early spine label are preserved. End papers are renewed in quality laid paper. Interior pages are generally clean but show occasional light toning, wear and scattered spotting. The title page contains mild discoloration; the inner margin is neatly strengthened (hardly noticeable); M. Maturin?s name is written in a miniscule hand on the upper margin. The map reveals mild spots of discoloration; a small chip and a neatly sealed tear (1 cm) are present on the outer margin; another sealed tear (2.5 cm) on the lower edge is accompanied by a couple tiny worm holes slightly affecting the printed border area. Giovanni Tommaso Minadoi (1545-1618) served as personal physician to Teodoro Balbi, the Venetian consul in Syria. While in Aleppo, Minadoi witnessed the outbreak of the Ottoman-Safavid War (1578-90) fought between the Turkish Sultan Murad III and the Persian Shah Mohammad Hodabanda the Blind. His book recounting the conflict (first published in Rome, 1587 and again in 1588) also records many interesting details of Persian culture (See Dizionario Biografico, Vol. 74, 2010). [Adams M-1456; Edit16: CNCE 31430]. Provenance: an earlier front paste-down is retained with the armorial bookplate of Maturin L. Delafield, a merchant from a respected New York family. According to ?The N.Y. Genealogical and Biographical Record? Vol. 47, Delafield did confidential work for Abraham Lincoln and his cabinet during the Civil War. Above the plate, a much faded note in pencil concerning G. Minadoi is attributed (by another penciled note) to Major Joseph Delafield (Maturin?s father). Joseph Delafield served in the War of 1812.

        Colloquia sive Exercitatio latinae linguae. Nürnberg, Paul Kauffmann, [1594].

      1594. 302, (34) SS. Mit Holzschnittdruckermarke am Titel und einigen ornamentalen Initialen in Holzschnitt sowie einer schematischen Holzschnittillustration. Pergamentband der Zeit auf 3 durchzogenen Bünden mit schöner Deckelblindprägung und hs. Rückenschildchen. 8vo. Eines der am häufigsten gedruckten Schulbücher; erstmals 1539 in Paris gedruckt; Estelrich zählt bis ins 18. Jh. über 200 Ausgaben. "25 Schülergespräche, die an Auflagenzahl, Kommentierungen und Übersetzungen gemessen, sich in ganz Westeuropa größter Beliebtheit erfreuten. [...] Das Werk ist Philipp II. gewidmet und soll Knaben zum Erlernen der lateinischen Sprache dienen, deren Kenntnis erst den Zugang zur Wissenschaft eröffne, wie es im Widmungsbrief des Verfassers heißt" (Brüggemann). Juan Luis Vives (1492-1540) war einer der berühmtesten spanischen Humanisten und Pädagogen; mit Erasmus und Budaeus bildete er das literarische Triumvirat seiner Zeit. 1523-28 war er Erzieher am Hof Heinrich VIII. von England und seit 1528 bis zu seinem Tode schriftstellerisch in Brügge tätig. "Seine Hauptbedeutung liegt in seinen pädagogischen Schriften. Im Allgemeinen lassen sich fast alle leitenden Principien der neuen Pädagogik auf Vives zurückführen, aber hoch überragt dieser die meisten Pädagogen durch die Betonung der Einheit von Unterricht und Erziehung" (Wetzer/W. XII, 1024ff.). - Die vorliegende Bearbeitung ist mit einem Kommentar und Worterklärungen (teils mit deutschen Übersetzungen) zu jedem Schülergespräch versehen von Johann Thomas Freige (1543-83), einem Philosophen und Anhänger des Ramus, geboren in Freiburg und längere Zeit in Basel tätig (vgl. ADB VII, 341ff.). Solche Kommentierungen waren für Vives' "Exercitatio" typisch: "Vives beabsichtigte mit seinem Werke, den Schülern für den gesamten Bereich des täglichen Lebens in Schule und Haus bis in die kleinsten Teile hinein mit den richtigen lateinischen Bezeichnungen an die Hand zu gehen, und er zog deshalb mit peinlicher Sorgfalt alle nur denkbaren Dinge und Verhältnisse in die Gespräche hinein. Wenn der Sprachschatz seiner Zeit erschöpft war, holte er neues Material aus den technischen Schriften der Alten; genügte das Lateinische nicht, so wurde das Griechische herangezogen und, wo auch dieses nicht ausreichte, zu neuen Bildungen nach der Analogie geschritten. Diese wohlanzuerkennende Absicht des Humanisten, eine möglichst weitgehende praktische Verwendung der lateinischen Sprache zu ermöglichen, brachte aber auch einen Vives nicht ohne Grund zum Vorwurf gemachten Uebelstand mit sich, dass nämlich die Lektüre der Schrift durch die fast erdrückende Fülle des Materials zu sehr erschwert wird. Um das Verständnis zu erleichtern, [...] schrieb [man] Erklärungen der schwierigen Worte und Stellen, oder man setzte neben den lateinischen Text eine Uebersetzung in der Sprache seines Landes" (Bömer, 163ff.). - Neuausgabe der 1582 bei Gerlach gedruckten Ausgabe durch Paul Kauffmann (1568-1632), der die Berg-Gerlachsche Offizin 1594 übernahm (vgl. Benzing 363). - Mit der Holzschnittillustration zum "Zwölfstein"-Brettspiel in Freiges Glosse zum sechsten Dialog. Einband etwas wellig; der Rücken alt mit dekoriertem Papier überzogen. Kl.

An seinen Bruder Maximilian (1558-1618) über den Kammerdiener Johann Baptist Caprin, ihren gemeinsamen Bruder Erzherzog Ernst und über den Türkenkrieg. - Der für die geistliche Laufbahn bestimmte jüngste Sohn von Kaiser Maximilian II. war 1577 Kardinal und Erzbischof von Toledo geworden und war von 1583 bis 1593 Statthalter von Portugal und seit 1596 auch in den spanischen Niederlanden. "Nachdem er mit päpstlicher Erlaubnis die geistlichen Würden niedergelegt und die Erbin der Niederlande, die Tochter Philipps II., Isabella Clara Eugenia, geheiratet hatte, war er seit 1599 selbständiger Landesfürst der Niederlande. Der Friede von Vervins mit Frankreich (1598) und der zwölfjährige Waffenstillstand mit den Generalstaaten (1609) schufen die Voraussetzungen für wichtige Aufbauarbeiten" (DBE). - Mit zahlreichen, meist alt hinterlegten Papierdurchbrüchen; etwas angestaubt und fleckig.

        Peregrinatio in Aegyptum, Arabiam, Palaestinam, & Syriam [...]. Studio et opera M. Christophori Donaveri, Ratisponensis. Nuremberg, Paul Kauffmann, 1594.

      1594. 4to. (4), 173, (3) pp. With the author's woodcut arms on verso of title page. Modern full calf with giltstamped red spine label. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. Rare: the first and only separate edition of one of the most important early descriptions of a journey through the Middle East. An English edition appeared in Churchill's "A Collection of Voyages and Travels" in 1704, a Russian edition was published in 1794. Martin von Baumgarten (also: Baumgartner, 1473-1535) from Breitenbach in Austria visited the Middle East from April 1507 to July 1508. He set off from Kufstein to Venice, then travelled via Croatia to Corfu, Crete, Cyprus, Egypt, Palestine, Damascus and Beirut, then back to Cyprus and returned to Kufstein by the same route. His account includes a report on the dexterousness of the Arabian youths in handling boats, of the capacity for swimming among the Arabs, and of Muslim circumcision. "The account of his travels was compiled from his diary and that of his servant" (Cox) by the Regensburg theologian Christoph Donauer (1564-1611), who also provides a biography of Baumgarten in the preface. - Upper hinge and slight paper flaw to fol. E4 professionally repaired. At the foot of the title page, the present copy is inscribed by Donauer to the Regensburg senator Georg Sigmund Hamman (1562-1627): "Ornatissimo viro, domino Georgio Siegismundo Hammano etc. compatri meo dilecto offero M.C.D."

      1594. Incisione in rame, mm 206x300. Testo latino al verso. Firmata in lastra "Joann Bussemecher excudit", mentre in basso a sinistra si nota la lettera Q, che sta per Quad. Questa carta di evidente ispirazione gastaldina, è inserita in varie opere: "Europae, totius orbis terrarum partis praestantissimae universalis et particularis descriptio" a partire dal 1594, "Geographisch Handt-buch" del 1600 e in "Fasciculus Geographicus" del 1608. In un riquadro in alto a sinistra è ritratto il re di Spagna Filippo II. 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. Buono stato di conservazione, ottima impressione con lieve arrossamento alla piega centrale. Meurer, Atlantes Coloniensis, Qua 43; Valerio-Spagnolo, Sicilia 1477-1861. La collezione Spagnolo-Patermo in quattro secoli di cartografia, 56; Dufour-La Gumina, Imago Siciliae, 100 Copper engraving, mm 206x300. Dark impression. Latin text. Signed "Joann Bussemecher excudit", and bottom left the letter Q, for Quad. This map is a reduced version Gastaldi model. From "Europae, totius orbis terrarum partis praestantissimae universalis et particularis descriptio" from 1594, "Geographisch Handt-buch" of 1600 and "Fasciculus Geographicus" of 1608. Good condition, light discoloration at centerfold The map belongs to the so - called atlases published by the Cartographic School of Cologne. For nearly half a century, Cologne was the most important mapmakers center in the XVI century, mainly due to Dutch and Flemish refugees fleeing religious persecution. Among the principal members of the School, include Quad Matthaeus, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero and Frans Hogenberg, who was its founder. The atlases were often published anonymously or using pseudonyms precisely because of some political and religious problems that characterized the era.

        De Cruce libri tres ad sacram profanamque historiam utiles. Una cum notis.

      Antverpiae Ex Officina Plantiniana, apud Viduam et J. Moretum 1594 In-4 de (16)-120-(8) pp., vélin de l'époque sous étui moderne. Edition originale de second tirage aussi rare que le premier. « C'est l'édition d'Anvers, 1593-1594, avec un I de plus à la fin du millésime du titre. Beaucoup de figures portent des retouches que les exemplaires de 1593-1594 n'ont pas » (Van der Haeghen). Traité du supplice de la croix chez les peuples de l'Antiquité que le philologue et humaniste brabançon Juste Lipse (1547-1606) composa pour témoigner de sa conversion catholique. L'auteur, dans ses notes, fait mention de quelques personnes avec qui il a été en rapport pour la composition de son ouvrage, notamment Delrio, Van Raphelengen père, Jean Boisot, Denis de Villers et Pierre Oranus. « Le troisième livre de Juste Lipse rassemble les manières extraordinaires d'employer le supplice de la croix. Il y explique ce que c'était que la fourche dont on se servait pour punir les esclaves ; comment on les élevait en croix avec cette fourche dont on se servait pour punir les esclaves ; comment on les élevait en croix avec cette fourche, et des différentes sortes de fourches. Il traite ensuite des différentes manières de crucifier, la tête en bas de travers, les pieds écartés ; de ceux qui étant attachés à la croix, étaient brûlés tous vifs ou exposés aux bêtes farouches. Enfin on attachait le corps des suppliciés à des croix ou à des gibets. Lipse examine ensuite de quel bois étaient faites les croix ; celui de chêne étant le plus fort, était le plus propre pour leur construction. Le lieu ordinaire où on les plantait était élevé, et les croix étaient hautes. Juste Lipse finit ce livre par la description des honneurs que Constantin rendit à la Croix, en faisant mettre ce signe sur ses drapeaux, sur les armes de ses soldats, sur les ornements impériaux : et conclut cet ouvrage par un éloge de la Croix par S. Jean Damascène. » (Nouvelle Bibliothèque des auteurs ecclésiastiques). Vignette de titre et 22 gravures sur cuivre in-texte dont 1 à pleine-page par Pierre Van der Borcht ; marque de Plantin in fine.
