        Descriptio Publicae Gratulationis Spectaculorum et Ludorum

      ex Officina Plantiniana, Antwerp 1595 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. Folio. pp. 174 [ii]. Roman and italic letter, historiated woodcut initials, head-and tail-pieces, title within engraved architectural border depicting Neptune and Athena, second t.p. after prelims within architectural border with allegories of Time and Fame, topped by double-headed eagle, cherubs holding globes. 29 full-page engravings and 4 double-page engravings by Pieter van der Borcht (1545-1608), all in extraordinarily clear, strong impression. Light age yellowing, occasional fingermarks to margins, slight tear to inner margin at F3, but a lovely, clean, fresh and well-margined copy in handsome contemporary calf, boards treble-ruled in blind, central gilt medallion, floral ornaments in each corner and six spine compartments, corners worn, cracking to extremities of joints on spine, remains of silk ties. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this magnificent festival book celebrating the entry of Archduke Ernst of Austria into Antwerp on 14 June 1594. The condition and detailing of the engravings indicates this must have been one of the earliest copies off the press. They were executed by Pieter van Der Borcht after drawings by Cornelius Floris II and Joos de Momper from the designs of Martin de Vos. The first double-page engraving depicts Ernst's parade approaching the city, images of the city entrance, the columns, stages, and arches erected in the town in honour of the occasion, the city theatre, and a two-page musical score for 6 voices of the song performed to welcome the Archduke. The pageantry continues with an engraving of the 27-foot statue erected in the marketplace of the giant Antigonus who once controlled Antwerp and was known for cutting off the right hands of mariners who did not pay him tribute. The city was liberated by another giant, Brabo, who cut off Antigonus' own hand, the legendary origin of the hands on the city's heraldic arms. The festivities end with nautical displays, fireworks and jousting, each frozen in time by their own splendid double-page engravings. Each is accompanied by descriptions of the festivities, and a commentary on their allegorical significance, by Joannes Bochius (1555-1609), a prominent lawyer and poet from Brussels who was an active official in the local government. The work provides a vivid depiction of the pageantry of the age and, the exuberant showmanship of a hopeful city: Antwerp had suffered sack, siege and plunder at the hands of Spaniards and Italians throughout the 1570s and 80s, its population halved to 55,000 by 1589. "What is unmistakable, once the real plight of the city is realized, is the extent to which the various spectacles prepared for 1594 convey the city's desire to put a brave front on its position, asserting, particularly, through the allegories on the arches of the foreign merchant communities, that the golden age which the city had enjoyed under Charles V was not lost beyond recall" Whether or not Ernst, a minor member of the Hapsburg family could deliver the town remains to be seen: "His relative unimportance is emphasized by the fact that Ernst was never invested with the titles of Margrave of Antwerp or Duke of Brabant" and thus was not entitled to the full ceremonial welcome. (Davidson and Van der Weel, cit. infr.). To add to the misfortune, Ernst died in Brussels 8 months later in February 1595, so the work ends with a funeral oration, a memorial as well as a tribute.

        Marius Nizolius sive Thesaurus Ciceronianus post nunquam fatis laudatas op

      Basileae [Bâle]: Sebastianum Henricpetri [Sebastian Heinrich Petri], 1595. Fine. Sebastianum Henricpetri [Sebastian Heinrich Petri], Basileae [Bâle] 1595, (20p.) 1626 col. (11p.), in-folio (20,5x33cm), relié. - Basel edition, supplemented and enriched by Basil Zanchi, Marcello Squarcialupi and Caellii Secundi Curionis. Brand of printer (allegorical scene forge) inset on the title page and large vignette on the back of the last leaf, the same pattern with frame composed of Renaissance allegorical characters. Some initials, a headband and a cul-de-lamp. Lexical Concordance originally published in 1535 under the title Mr. Tullium Ciceronem Observationes in Latin text in two columns of 85 lines. Cardboard posterior shabby: the back is missing. Lined paper margins on the back of the title page. Angular lack filled in sheet 1-2 in upper margin with small affect the text. Some pale foxing, foxing. Browning of paper features German and Swiss papers of that time. Like the Tabula Aurea (gold table) Bergama to the work of Thomas Aquinas, The Thesaurius Ciceronianus is essential to read the huge corpus of vocabulary work of Cicero and indispensable to its study, including teaching. Renaissance found in Cicero's classic, she exhumed the manuscripts and editions abound; it is the Latin author the least controversial and most studied, both in the religious world as civil, hence the need for this lexicon for determining the correct reading his work. "This book, very useful for the understanding of Cicero, first appeared under the title of Observationes in Ciceronem eg Prato Albuini (Brixiae), 1535". (Brunet IV-84). --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition de Bâle, complétée et enrichie par Basile Zanchi, Marcello Squarcialupi et Caellii Secundi Curionis. Marque de l'imprimeur (scène allégorique de forge) en médaillon sur la page de titre et grande vignette au verso du dernier feuillet, au même motif avec encadrement Renaissance composé de personnages allégoriques. Quelques lettrines, un bandeau et un cul-de-lampe. Concordance lexicale initialement parue en 1535 sous le titre Observationes in M. Tullium Ciceronem Texte en latin sur deux colonnes de 85 lignes. Reliure en plein cartonnage postérieur défraîchi : le dos est manquant. Papier doublé en marge au verso de la page de titre. Manque angulaire comblé au feuillet 1-2 en marge supérieure avec petite atteinte au texte. Quelques pâles mouillures, rousseurs. Brunissures du papier caractéristiques des papiers allemands et suisses de cette époque. A l'instar de la Tabula Aurea (table d'or) de Bergama pour l'oeuvre de Thomas d'Aquin, Le Thesaurius Ciceronianus est le lexique indispensable à la lecture du corpus énorme de l'oeuvre de Cicéron et l'élément indispensable à son étude, notamment à son enseignement. La Renaissance a trouvé en Cicéron son grand classique, elle en exhumera les manuscrits et les éditions abonderont ; il est l'auteur latin le moins contesté et plus étudié, tant par le monde religieux que celui civil, d'où la nécessité de ce lexique déterminant pour la lecture correcte son oeuvre. «Cet ouvrage, d'une grande utilité pour l'intelligence de Cicéron, a paru d'abord sous le titre d'Observationes in Ciceronem, ex Prato Albuini (Brixiae), 1535». (Brunet IV-84).

        THE FLORENTINE HISTORIE Written in the Italian tongue, by Nicholo Macchiavelli, Citizen and Secretarie of Florence And translated into English by T B [Thomas Bedingfield] Esquire

      London: Printed by T. C. [Thomas Creede] for W. P. [William Ponsonby]. 1595. First English Edition. 222 pages. Decorated with woodcut engraved ornamental title page and engraved head and tailpieces. Tiny (3mm deep) chip to the fore edge of the title page and the first few leaves are just a little browned but overall a lovely clean and crisp copy with good margins. Lacking the blank terminal leaf. finely bound in recent 'Grolier' period style full calf binding. Spine with five raised bands. Compartments ruled, lettered and fully decorated in gilt. Burgundy title label, gilt. Triple blind ruled border on boards, surrounding a triple blind ruled panel which frames an elaborate decorative onlay and gilt design. A lovely copy in a fine period style binding of this rare work. "The first example in Italian literature of a national biography" (Britannica). "In the Florentine Histories Machiavelli has the chance to make the protagonists speak in their own voices to persuade or dissuade their fellow-citizens to uphold or reject a course. He can show deliberative rhetoric in action, and make ancient Florentines speak to the Florentines of his times to urge them with powerful and wise words not to imitate the errors that caused the decline of the city." Maurizio Viroli, Machiavelli. In 1520, Machiavelli was commissioned by Giulio de' Medici to write an account of the history of Florence. The book he produced "is the first example in Italian literature of a national biography, the first attempt in any literature to trace the vicissitudes of a people's life in their logical sequence, deducing each successive phase from passions or necessities inherent in preceding circumstance, reasoning upon them from general principles, and inferring corollaries for the conduct of the future." (Britannica). It is all the more unusual because Machiavelli followed the humanist style "of inventing speeches. Even though he was not present and could not have been present, he puts appropriate speeches into the mouths of actual historical figures as if they were characters in a play of his... Fact, in their [the humanists?'] view, needs to be filled out with opinion, and it is the duty of the historian, in the absence of scribes and witnesses, to infer human intention and to make it explicit in speeches, adding sense to actions in order to arrive at truth." (Harvey Claflin Mansfield, Machiavelli's Virtue). The Florentine Historie was not a dispassionate, purely factual account, but a tribute to "Machiavelli's desire to write a history that would inspire all lovers of the common good of man in whatever age or nation." The speeches he fabricated, the motivations behind the events he wrote about "are developed beyond dramatic requirements into expositions of social and political truths suggested by Florentine events." (Allan Gilbret, Machiavelli). Because "his historical context includes both the facts of his time, which would have influenced his writing of history, and the historiography characteristic of his time, together with the conception of history underlying those historiographic methods," he created a far more complete image of Florence than could ever be garnered from an impersonal examination of the city's archives (Mansfield). With translator's dedication and Machiavelli's own Introduction ("Proeme"). (Pollard and Redgrave 17162.)

På sidan 143 återfinns texten om templet i Ubsola med sin staty föreställande de tre gudarna Thor, Wodan & Fricco.

Very rare second edition in Dutch (dated in the same year as the first) of Juan González de Mendoza's very popular work on China, "one of the most influential early books on China to be published in Europe" (Reed & Demattè). It offers a detailed description of China together with lengthy accounts of several recent missionary voyages."The book's first section is a survey in three sections that introduces China's history, antiquities, architecture, populace, religious beliefs and ceremonies, agriculture, military organization, and government. ... Mendoza's volume also contains descriptions of Japan and the Philippines and a chronicle of Spanish missions in the New World" (Reed & Demattè).The tight binding means that the inner ends of the lines of text run deep into the gutter, but the innermost letters can be seen. With underscoring and annotations in the margins of the first half of the book and a small hole in H4 with the loss of a couple of letters. In good condition.

        America sive India Nova,.

      Duisburg 1595 - Fine hand color; excellent condition. One of the most visually distinctive, early maps of the Western Hemisphere. Its cartography was the work of Gerard Mercator, "the greatest name in geographical science after Ptolemy" (Tooley), but the map¿s design and execution were the work of the elder¿s grandson, Michael, shortly after Gerard¿s death in 1594. The map¿s format is both unusual and elegant: the map is set within a circle surrounded by a design of interlocking acanthus leaves and cornucopias. There are roundels in the four corners, with three of them containing maps--of the Gulf of Mexico, Cuba, and of Hispaniola. An interesting detail on the map is what is most likely the Hudson River in the area here called ¿Norombega¿. By the end of the 16th Century, the river and the great harbor at its mouth that had been discovered by Verrazano in 1524 had all but vanished from maps. Its depiction here suggests Mercator's independent-minded acceptance of Verrazano's discoveries. Also of interest is the large, interior lake in North America called "Mare dulcum aquarum," which could be based on an Indian report of one of the Great Lakes. However, since it is well north of the Great Lakes, it could also represent James Bay or Lake Winnipeg. The map was extrapolated from Mercator's landmark world of 1569 by his grandson, Michael, for inclusion in the senior Mercator's atlas of 1595. Burden 87; Goss, J. Mapping of North America #19.

Triple blind ruled border on boards, surrounding a triple blind ruled panel which frames an elaborate decorative onlay and gilt design. A lovely copy in a fine period style binding of this rare work. "The first example in Italian literature of a national biography" (Britannica). "In the Florentine Histories Machiavelli has the chance to make the protagonists speak in their own voices to persuade or dissuade their fellow-citizens to uphold or reject a course. He can show deliberative rhetoric in action, and make ancient Florentines speak to the Florentines of his times to urge them with powerful and wise words not to imitate the errors that caused the decline of the city."- Maurizio Viroli. - Machiavelli. Niccolo Machiavelli did not write that which we call history today. For him, history and historiography were one and the same, and the Florentine Historie is the best example of that. In 1520, Machiavelli was commissioned by Giulio de' Medici to write an account of the history of Florence. The book he produced "is the first example in Italian literature of a national biography, the first attempt in any literature to trace the vicissitudes of a people's life in their logical sequence, deducing each successive phase from passions or necessities inherent in preceding circumstance, reasoning upon them from general principles, and inferring corollaries for the conduct of the future." (Britannica). It is all the more unusual because Machiavelli followed the humanist style "of inventing speeches. Even though he was not present and could not have been present, he puts appropriate speeches into the mouths of actual historical figures as if they were characters in a play of his... Fact, in their [the humanists] view, needs to be filled out with opinion, and it is the duty of the historian, in the absence of scribes and witnesses, to infer human intention and to make it explicit in speeches, adding sense to actions in order to arrive at truth." (Harvey Claflin Mansfield, Machiavelli's Virtue). The reason behind Machiavelli's historiography as history is that he believed that histories should not just tell an account of what happened and when, but should be beneficial to the people of which they speak. Today, our historians are meant to distance themselves from their subjects; to Machiavelli, an intimate relation to the country about which he wrote was a necessity. The Florentine Historie, therefore, was not solely a commissioned work, but a tribute to "Machiavelli's desire to write a history that would inspire all lovers of the common good of man in whatever age or nation." The speeches he fabricated, the emotions behind the mere events he wrote about "are developed beyond dramatic requirements into expositions of social and political truths suggested by Florentine events. Incidentally, these orations enabled Machiavelli to deal with the problem of the Medici." (Allan Gilbret, Machiavelli). While Florentine Historie would not be considered an honest historical account today, the history that was presented to the Cardinal, by then Pope Clement VII, is perhaps truer than mere factual history. Because "his historical context includes both the facts of his time, which would have influenced his writing of history, and the historiography characteristic of his time, together with the conception of history underlying those historiographic methods," he created a far more complete image of Florence than could ever be garnered from an impersonal examination of the city's archives (Mansfield). With translator's dedication and Machiavelli's own Introduction ("Proeme"). Pollard and Redgrave 17162.

        Defensio sexus muliebris, opposita futilissimae disputationi recens editae, qua suppresso authoris & typographi nomine blaspheme contenditur, mulieres homines non esse.

      Leipzig, Michael Lantzenberger [für Henning Grosse], 1595. - 4to. (62) pp., last bl. f. With woodcut printer's device on t. p. (Bound with) II: Admonitio theologicae facultatis in Academia Witebergensi, ad scholasticam iuventutem, de libello famoso & blasphemo recens sparso, cuius titulus est: Disputatio nova contra mulieres, qua ostenditur, eas homines non esse. Wittenberg, Matthäus Welack's widow, 1595. (12) pp. Boards (c. 1900). Edges sprinkled in red. The two most important literary reactions to the scandalous anonymous antifeminist polemic, "Disputatio nova contra mulieres, qua probatur eas homines non esse" (no place, 1595; VD 16, ZV 4618), which had denied the humanity of women (and thus their capacity for salvation). The pamphlet sparked a surge of 16th and 17th century satires. The Theology department in Wittenberg warned its students against reading the book, while the Leipzig Professor of Hebrew, Simon Gediccus (1551-1631), published an apology of the female sex in which he refutes the pamphlet word for word. - Somewhat browned throughout due to paper; ms. note on last f. From the collection of the German lawyer Christian Friedrich Eberhard (1753-1818) with his bookplate on the front pastedown. Both works are very rare; neither one in German auction records since 1950. I: VD 16, G 652. - II: VD 16, W 3701. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
