"..On doit lui assigner un des premiers rangs parmi les restaurateurs de l'art de guérir en Europe. S'il a porté trop loin la haine contre les Arabes, il a du moins fixé l'attention sur les écrits des Grecs, qui sont en effet la source la plus pure de la vraie médecine", annota lo Chaumeton nella voce da lui dedicata al Fuchs nella "Biographie Universelle" del Michaud (XVI, p. 142), rimarcando come il Fuchs avesse fornito anche importanti precetti sui purganti, sui bagni, sulle febbri, sulla sifilide, che ebbe il merito di dimostrare essere una nuova malattia per gli europei, portata direttamente dal Nuovo Mondo (pare … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mesa, Cristobal de
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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

D M Jansonio (Michael ab Isselt)
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. This copy is in six books and is in a possibly contemporary binding with raised bands, red title label and the remains of gilt decoration to the spine. It has wear but is in good condition. Contents: Initial blank; title page with winged mercury design; Epistola dedicatory 4pp; Index 26pp; books - primus pp 1-84; secundus pp 84-174; tertius pp 175-255; quartus pp 256-358; quintus pp 359-512; sextus pp 513-683 - including 'Brevis rerum turcas et christianos per ungariam.. at pp 673-683; epilogus pp 684-685; Finis with emblem. The contents are in very good condition. The paper is browned but generally clean. There is a small paper flaw at p24; small loss from the bottom margin of p463 not affecting text; some light marking on p477; some light ink lining on pp 604-605; and a ragged bottom margin, not affecting text on p663. 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.

PONA, Francesco.
ICCU (9 copies); Landwehr, Romanic emblem books 610; Praz, pp. 151-152. First edition of a religious emblem book in Latin, built around the theme of the heart, written by the Marinist poet, writer, doctor and philosopher Francisco Pona (1594-1654). The illustrations, largely etched and unsigned, are slightly primitive in execution, but have the heart-felt charm of folk art. Pona's works ranged from scientific treatises and history to poetry and plays. In 1651 he was appointed the official historian to the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III.With the early owner's inscription of a painter ("pictoris"), Dominicus Dentonus, at the foot of the title-page. In good condition, with only some small worm holes in the foot margin of the last two leaves and some minor marginal soiling. Binding wrinkled and soiled. [Attributes: First Edition]

TOKUSEN, artist
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.".

Blaeu, Willem Janszoon. (1571 - 1631).

Handcoloured ! Professionally cleaned, historical map, beautifully and professionally mounted/retsored on see-through, acid-free paper. Price includes worldwide free shipping. 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. Orig … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).
