        Magnificat for 5 voices. Late 16th century "picture-motet" engraving, one of the very earliest examples of engraved music.

      [Antwerp]: Visscher, ca. 1595. Oblong quarto. 1 leaf (206 x 288 mm.). Engraving by C. Visscher after Jan Sadeler the elder (1550-1600), based on the painting by Maarten de Vos. A representation of the Magnificat, with the Virgin Mary in the center surrounded by four angels playing viols, a flute and a cornetto, with two additional singing angels on either side holding large carelles (erasable slate tablets) on which are printed the complete five-voice setting (words and music) of Verdonck's Magnificat, with the altus and bassus part on the left carelle, the superius and tenor canon in diapason on the right. Slightly worn; unevenly trimmed to just inside plate impression; "4" printed to lower right corner. A very good impression, with both music and text eminently readable. A reverse of Sadeler's 1586 engraving. RISM V1239 (the 1585 printing). Vignau-Wilberg: Music and Dance in 16th Century Prints, no. 63 (the 1585 printing), illustrated on p. 170. OCLC 271822365 (the present printing). Verdonck, a Flemish composer and singer, "became a pupil in Antwerp of Séverin Cornet, who included one work of the younger composer in each of his three publications of 1581... Two sacred works, appearing in copper engravings of the Virgin by Marten de Vos, are predominantly imitative; one of these, a Magnificat for five voices, features a strict canon derived from the tenor... Along with his mentor Séverin Cornet, Verdonck is an important exponent of the madrigal in the north." R.B. Lenaerts, et al. in Grove Music Online. "These engravings, sometimes known as 'picture-motets', show angels or biblical figures singing and playing from partbooks and may have been published in support of the Counter-Reformation... The composers, artists and engravers were all Flemish and these fine engravings, with the music complete and legible, bear witness to the thriving artistic life in Antwerp at the end of the 16th century... They are important in their own right as particularly beautiful and unusual examples of early music engraving." Susan Bain in Grove Music Online. One of the very earliest examples of engraved music.

      London: Richard Field for Bonham Norton, 1595.. COMPLETE SECOND EDITION. Quarto, in sixes (30 x 22cm), pp.[14], 865, 862-1098, 1101-1104, 1099-1100, 1109-1110, 1105-1108, 1111-1173 [29].

Plutarch's 'Lives' were first published in a French translation from the original Greek by Jacques Amyot in 1559. Thomas North then published his first collection of Lives in English, translated from Amyot's French, in 1579. This second edition followed in 1595 with some newly translated lives, and a third edition with further translations appeared finally in 1603. Shakespeare, among others, drew inspiration directly from this influential translation, with whole sections copied almost verbatim in 'Antony and Cleopatra'.

      - Santiago, Juan de (S.J.), De arte Rhetorica lilbri quatuor: in quibus eisudem artis praecepta artificiosa methodo explicantur ad Eloquentiam comparandam. Ad cuius finem pro appendice additum est brevissimum opusculum de conscribendis epistolis cum índice totius operis, Sevilla, Juan León, 1595 8º. (15 x 10 cms.), 9 hs. + 266 págs. + 7 hs. Portada con escudo xilográfico de la Compañía de Jesús. Pequeño sello de tinta en portada con monograma de la biblioteca jesuita de procedencia: "Casa Professa SSA". En la página 266 la marca tipográfica del impresor. Encuadernación en piel del siglo XVIII con falsos nervios, título en tejuelo y adornos dorados. Restauraciones de polilla en hojas iniciales sin afectar a texto. Ref.: Escudero y Perosso, nº 792; Palau, nº. 299871. El tratadito retórico del jesuita Juan de Santiago "o Juan de Jacobo" (Toledo, 1532-Marchena, 1604), es una obra muy rara. Tanto Escudero y Perosso como Palau la citan por el ejemplar conservado en Biblioteca Nacional de Madrid, al que cabe sumar tan solo otros tres ejemplares en bibliotecas españolas recogidos en el Catalogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico Español (CCPB000022911-3), y un quinto más, mútilo de portada y la hoja de erratas, custodiado en la biblioteca de la Universidad de Sevilla. Su obra, escrita a la zaga de la del padre Cripriano Suárez (S. J.), De arte rhetorica libri tres (Coimbra, 1562), que gozó de numerosas ediciones a lo largo del Quinientos convirtiéndose en el manual más utilizado por los colegios de la Compañía, muestra cierto conservadurismo, con un ramismo libre influenciado en buena medida por el Institutionum Rethoricarum (Lovaina, 1554) de Fadrique Furió Ceriol, al que no cita, y por la producción gramatical valenciano Pedro Juan Núñez. Resulta de gran interés el pequeño opúsculo sobre la escritura de cartas que incorpora a modo de apéndice. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sacra Famiglia

      Acquaforte, circa 1595, priva della firma dell'artista. Prova del raro primo stato di due, avanti l'aggiunta nel margine bianco della scritta "Guido Reni fecit". Magnifica impressione, nitida e contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Il Reni affronta questo soggetto in maniera molto simile per tre volte. Molto difficile ordinare cronologicamente le opere, a causa della mancanza di date e di documenti relativi. Tuttavia la notevole influenza del Parmigianino in questo lavoro e l'affinità stilistica con lo Stemma della famiglia Sforza (Bartsch 23) lascia presupporre che sia il più antico dei tre, quindi databile all'ultimo decennio del XVI secolo. Nella ripetizione di questo soggetto (Bartsch 10 & 11), esistono sostanziali differenze stilistiche nella maniera di incidere. Etching, circa 1595, without signature. Example of the rare first state of two, before the inscription "Guido Reni fecit". A magnific impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, perfect conditions. Guido Reni translate this subject, in the same way, three times. Very difficult to sort chronologically the works, due to lack of dates and related documents. However, the considerable influence of Parmigianino in this work and the stylistic affinity with the coat of arms of the Sforza family (Bartsch 23) suggests that it is the oldest of the three, so datable to the last decade of the sixteenth century. In the repetition of this subject (Bartsch 10 & 11), there are substantial differences in the manner of stylistic influence. Perfect example. Bartsch 9, TIB 004 I/II, Bertelà 858.

Contemporary manuscript annotations on the first blank, about 50 words in 12 lines, noting "Anno xty - Reginae Elizabethae," the "acte for the realife relief of the poor," and a remedy "For sore eise / Take id [one penny] worth of white coperes / Take a nue laid ege & leue in a / Litell of the glaier & take / A litell roninge water & put in the / Copperas & all the reast together / A set hit to gethr . . ."

Copper engraved map of part of Andaluzia, Spain from Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" 1595 edition; black & white. Latin text to verso. The map focuses on the area surrounding Seville; sea battle off Cadiz; fish & monsters. Good dark impression. Abraham Ortelius,[ 1527-1598] Flemish Cartographer . produced the first modern Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" in 1570. printed by Aegidus Coppen Diest. There were numerous editions thereafter with texts in various languages; the printing of such was taken over by Chrstoffel Plantijn in 1579 . Ortelius himself drew all the maps in manuscript before passing them to the printers. there is conjecture that he may have engraved some of the plates as well The 1595 Latin text edition is the most complete produced during his lifetime, containing all the maps of the 1593 edition plus those of the the"Additamentum" and the"Pareragon" or Ancient geography. The " Additamenta" were supplements to the original Atlas; at the same time Ortelius replaced some maps with new ones showing the same place; some plates were also reworked . Ortelius was Geographer Royal To Phillip II of Spain from 1575. He also worked closely with Braun & Hogenburg on the "Civitas Orbis Terarum". After his death the plates were purchased by Jan Baptiste Vrients in 1601 who published further editions until 1612. Van de Krogt :3; .Koeman: Ort29 18 [74]; van.de. Broecke:28.

        Quis evadet

      1595 - Bulino, fine del XVI secolo, con l'inidrizzo di Domenico Custos. Da un soggetto di Hendrick Goltzius. Meravigliosa prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, tracce di piega centrale orizzontael, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Soffiando bolle, un putto è appoggiato su un teschio che simboleggia la transitorietà. Gli studiosi fanno rilevare che Goltzius ha qui sintetizzato una combinazione del tipo italiana, il putto come simbolo della vanità e degli elementi della cultura emblematica olandese. Questo è sottolineato l'iscrizione Quis Evadet? (Chi sarà risparmiato?). Un'altra versione di questo soggetto pubblicato da Goltzius si basa su una composizione di Tiziano, ispirata da un'incisione di Agostino Carracci. Questa versione in controparte dell'opera di Goltzius, edita da Custos, è sconosciuta ai repertori. Engraving, end of XVI century, with the imprint of Domenicos Custos. After Hendrick Goltzius. A great impression, on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, showing trace of central fold, otherwise very good conditions. Blowing bubbles, the recliing boy is leaning on a skull that symbolizes transcience. Scholars points out that Goltzius ha here synthesized a combination of the Italian type putto as a symbol of Vanity and the Dutch elementes emblematic transcience. This is emphasized by the inscription Quis Evadet? (Who will be spared?). Another version of this subject published by Goltzius is based on a composition by Titian, as transmitted by an engraving by Agostino Carracci. This mirror image copy published by Custos is not listed in the literature. Hirschmann 110; Hollstein 110; New Hollstein (Dutch & Flemish) 128 (Hendrick Goltzius); Strauss 323; Bartsch III.97.10 (after Goltzius). Dimensioni 154 212mm

        Africa ex magna orbis terrae descriptione Gerardi Mercatoris desumpta. Studio & industria G. M. Iunoris

      Amsterdam 1595 - Questa splendida carta dell'Africa appare per la prima volta nell' Atlas sive Cosmographicae di Gerard Mercator, pubblicato postumo nel 1595. Come indicato nel titolo, questa mappa è realizzata dal nipote di Gerard Mercator, Gerard Mercator Jr. che ha desunto le informazioni dalla grande mappa del mondo di suo nonno del 1569. Mercator senior, a sua volta, ha utilizzato come fonti i lavori di Gastaldi e Waldseemuller. Questa mappa ha un alto grado di precisione in particolare lungo la costa che non è stata ineguagliata per tutto il XVI secolo (Klemp). Gran parte delle regioni interne del continente rimanda alla tradizione tolemaica; il fiume Nilo è mostrato con le sue sorgenti nei Lunae Montes. A differenza però di altri cartografi, Mercator non ricorre alle raffigurazioni di animali. L'unica figura nella mappa è quella leggendaria del Prete Gianni, nell'area nordorientale. Il grande cartiglio con il titolo è decorato con dei frutti e due satiri. Incisione su rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, lievi fioriture sui margini bianchi, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questo esemplare è tratto dall'edizione francese dell'Atlas sive Cosmographicae A classic map of Africa. The map first appeared in Gerard Mercator’s Atlas sive Cosmographicae., published posthumously in 1595. As stated in the title, this map is by Gerard Mercator's grandson, Gerard Mercator Jr. He extracted the information for this map from his famous grandfather's large world map of 1569. Mercator also used as sources the Waldseemuller and Gastaldi maps. This map has a high degree of accuracy especially along the coastline that was unsurpassed by any other 16th century cartographer (Klemp). Much of the interior of Africa defers to the traditions of Ptolemy; the Nile river is shown with the two lakes and the Mountains of the Moon across southern Africa. Mercator tried to adhere to a more scientific approach and did not include the numerous beasts of other cartographers. The only figure within Africa is the seated legendary priest-king Prester John in Ethiopia. The cartouche is quite decorative with fruit and two satyrs. This particular map is from a French edition of the Atlas sive Cosmographicae Copper engraving, original colours, in very good condition. Betz #31; Norwich #21; Van der Krogt (Vol. I) #8600:1A.

        Eglentiers poëtens borst-weringh.Amsterdam, Paulus van Ravesteyn for Jan Evertsz. Cloppenburgh, 1619. 4to. Contemporary vellum.

      Alblas, pp. 50-51; Borst & Verkruijsse, eds., pp. 486-487; Praz, p. 475. First edition, in Dutch, of a remarkable example of the cross-fertilization of English and Dutch literature in the early 17th century. Rodenburgh's Dutch adaption of Sir Philip Sidney's The defence of poesie (1595) and of excerpts from Thomas Wilson's The arte of rhetorique form the theoretical prose core of the present work about poetry and expresses this view as well. Rodenburgh complemented it with a great number of exemplary poems, short verse plays, occasional verse and emblematic poems, both borrowed and original, many published here for the first time.With early notes about the content on an endleaf. With occasional minor stains, mostly in the foot margin, a couple small marginal tears and a few tiny marginal worm holes, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. With the vellum slightly soiled and one headband partly detached, but binding still good. A landmark in the history of Dutch poetry.

I send it FROM ISRAEL airmail registered Clement Walker (died 1651) was an English lawyer, official and politician. As a member of the Long Parliament, he became an outspoken critic of the conduct of its affairs, and allied himself to William Prynne. Author of the History of Independency, which as a project with several editions included also his Anarchia Anglicana, he was a strong opponent of religious factionalism, and was imprisoned in the Tower of London, where he died without being brought to trial. He used the pseudonym Theodorus Verax. He was born at Cliffe in Dorset, and is said to have been educated at Christ Church, Oxford, but his name does not appear in the matriculation register. In 1611 he became a student of the Middle Temple, being described as son and heir of Thomas Walker, esq., of Westminster. Before the First English Civil War began, Walker was made usher of the exchequer, an office which he held till February 1650 Walker had an estate at Charterhouse, Somerset, and was reputed to be an enemy to Puritans; but on the outbreak of the war he supported the parliamentary cause, and on 1 April 1643 became a member of the parliamentary committee for Somerset. He was advocate to the court-martial which condemned Robert Yeomans and George Bouchier (Bowyer) for seeking to betray Bristol to Prince Rupert, and was at first a strong supporter of Colonel Nathaniel Fiennes as governor of that city. After the surrender of Bristol by Fiennes to Prince Rupert, Walker became his most bitter enemy, co-operated with William Prynne in publishing pamphlets against him, and finally secured his condemnation by a court-martial. One of these pamphlets[1] was complained of by William Fiennes, 1st Viscount Saye and Sele, father of Colonel Fiennes, to the House of Lords, on the ground that it impugned his reputation. Walker was consequently arrested, brought before the house, fined £100, and ordered to pay £500 damages to Lord Say. He refused to make the submission that was also demanded, alleging that it was against the liberty of the subject, and that, as he was a commoner and a member of a committee appointed by the House of Commons, he ought not to be judged by the lords without being heard also by the lower house. He was sent to the Tower (7 October 1643), but released on bail (3 November) after he had petitioned the commons and caused his articles against Fiennes to be presented to them. Walker was elected member for Wells about the close of 1645, and made himself notorious by his hostility to the Independents. After the triumph of the army over the Presbyterians he was accused of being one of the instigators of the London riots of 20 July 1647. Walker denied this; he described himself in his writings as opposed to all factions, both presbyterians and independents, and never a member of any 'juntos' or secret meetings. In his Mystery of the Two Juntos, published in 1647, he attacked with acrimony the corruption of parliamentary government which the Long Parliament's assumption of all power had produced. Expulsion and death In December 1648 Walker was one of the members who voted the king's concessions sufficient ground for an agreement with him, and was consequently expelled from the house by Pride's Purge. He remained under arrest for about a month, which did not prevent him from publishing a protest against the king's trial. On the publication of the second part of his History of Independency, Parliament ordered Walker's arrest and the seizure of his papers (24 October 1649). A few days later (13 November) he was committed to the Tower to be tried for high treason.Walker was never brought to trial, but remained a prisoner in the Tower until his death in October 1651. He was buried in the church of All Hallows, Barking. The History of Independency Walker's major work was a composite, consisting of: The Mystery of the two Juntos, Presbyterian and Independent, 1647 (reprinted as a preface to the History of Independency);The History of Independency, with the Rise, Growth, and Practices of that powerful and restless Faction, 1648, (part i.);A List of the Names of the Members of the House of Commons, observing which are Officers of the Army contrary to the Self-denying Ordinance, 1648 (subsequently incorporated in part i. of the History of Independency.);A Declaration and Protestation of W. Prynne and C. Walker against the Proceedings of the General and General Council of the Army, 1649, and Six serious Queries concerning the King's Trial (both reprinted in the second part of the History of Independency).;Anarchia Anglicana, or the History of Independency, the second part, 1649;The High Court of Justice, or Cromwell's New Slaughter House in England, being the third part of the " History of Independency," written by the same Author, 1651. The History of Independency and Anarchia Anglicana were published under the pseudonym of Theodorus Verax. One particular aim of the work was to show up the Anglia Rediviva of 1647, by Joshua Sprigge (and perhaps others), as myth-making in its account of the civil war just ended.[2] The Anarchia was answered by George Wither in Respublica Anglicana, where he alleges that the author is Verax (truth-telling) on the title-page but not in the others. According to John Aubrey, who derived his information from one of Walker's fellow prisoners, Walker wrote a continuation of his 'History' giving an account of the king's coming to Worcester, which was lost.[3] A fourth part of the History was added by a certain T. M., who published it with the preceding three parts in one volume (1661). In this volume is Walker's often quoted criticism of the democrats of the English civil war, in reference to spreading an awareness of meritocracy and the workings of government: "They have made the people thereby so curious and arrogant that they will never find humility enough to submit to a civil rule." An abridgment in Latin of part of the History of Independency, entitled Historia Independentiae, is included in Sylloge Variorum Tractatuum, 1649, and in Metamorphosis Anglorum, 1653.

        Holy Land - Abraham Ortelius, 1595.

      HOLY LAND WITH THE WANDERINGS OF ABRAHAM IN BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL COLOUR?Abrahami Patriarchae peregrinatio, et vita?. Copper engraving published by Abraham Ortelius as part of his Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, in the (rare) Latin edition of 1595. Beautiful original hand colouring. Size: 35,3 x 46,6 cm.During the sixteenth century in the Low Countries, while Gerard Mercator was the preeminent cartographical innovator and draftsman, his friend and rival Abraham Ortelius became the most important map and atlas publisher. Ortelius? atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, revolutionised geographical publishing. As he expanded it in subsequent editions, he included a number of maps important to the history of mapping the Holy Land; one of which being this beautiful map surrounded by vignettes of the life of the Patriarch Abraham.The map became part of the expanding supplement of historical maps, entitled the Parergon, that Ortelius appended to his atlas of modern maps. Largely the work of the master himself, the maps in the Parergon, and this one in particular, are the best engravings that reflect the widespread sixteenth-century interest in classical geography.Territorial divisions on the map are taken from the story Abraham in Genesis. Ancient tribal names are preserved in the regions of the Philistines, Amelechites, Jebusites, Cenezites, and Gergesites. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah still thrive along the southern Jordan in the ?Valley of the Forest of Salt?, which was to become the Dead Sea. An inset shows the stages of the wanderings of Abraham, from Ur of the Chaldees, the lower Euphrates Valley, to Shechem, Bethel, Damascus, Egypt, and Hebron.In keeping with the title and biblical theme of the engraving, twenty-two medallions depicting scenes from the life of Abraham leaving Ur, sacrificing on the newly built altars at Shechem and Bethel, receiving the promise of the land, the birth of Isaac, the expulsion of Hagar, the sacrifice of Isaac, and the burials of Sarah and Abraham.The Wanderings of Abraham is among the most elaborate of Ortelius? compositions. It demonstrates his combined skills as a cartographer and an artist, and his accomplishment as an historian. Ortelius imaginatively enlivened the earliest period of biblical history for the readers of his Parergon.Price: ?2.950,- (excl VAT/BTW).

      DE STAD GRONINGEN IN 16DE-EEUW?Groninga? In de tijd met de hand gekleurde kopergravure uit de Civitates Orbis Terrarum, ca. 1595 gemaakt door Georg Braun en Franz Hogenberg. Afm. (prent) ca. 32 x 44 cm.De Civitates orbis terrarum wordt beschouwd als de vroegste systematische stedenatlas. Hoewel het geen echte voorlopers had, bleek het werk direct in een behoefte te voorzien, omdat het sociale, politieke en economische leven van die periode zich afspeelde in de steden. Het werd een van de bestsellers van de late zestiende eeuw. De zes delen waaruit het werk bestond, verschenen tussen 1572 en 1618; alleen het eerste deel vermeldt echter bovenstaande titel. Georg Braun (1541-1622), kanunnik van de kathedraal van Keulen, schreef het voorwoord bij de eerste vijf delen en ook de begeleidende tekst op de versozijde van de plattegronden en stadsaanzichten. Veel materiaal voor dit stedenboek is afkomstig van de Antwerpse cartograaf Abraham Ortelius. Diens in 1570 verschenen Theatrum orbis terrarum heeft in een aantal opzichten model gestaan voor de Civitates.Simon van den Neuvel (Novellanus), Frans Hogenberg en (zijn zoon?) Abraham Hogenberg graveerden de koperplaten naar ?op bestelling? gemaakte tekeningen van onder anderen de Antwerpse schilder Joris Hoefnagel, zijn zoon Jacob Hoefnagel en Heinrich Rantzau. Niet alle platen in de Civitates zijn echter speciaal voor dit werk gemaakt. Een aantal is nagetekend van reeds bestaande plattegronden en stadsaanzichten, onder meer uit Sebastian M?nsters Cosmographia en Lodovoco Guicciardini?s Descrittione di tutti i Paesi Bassi.In veel gevallen, zoals ook bij de plattegrond van Groningen, zijn de prenten verlevendigd door er menselijke figuren aan toe te voegen. Dit diende een tweeledig doel: niet alleen werd zo de mogelijkheid geboden de gewoontes en kleding van de inwoners te laten zien, het moest ook voorkomen ook dat de Turken tijdens hun veroveringstochten gebruik maakten van de stadsaanzichten, aangezien de Islam het afbeelden van personen niet toestaat.Prijs: ?650,- (incl. lijst).

        Holy Land - Abraham Ortelius, 1595.

      HOLY LAND WITH THE WANDERINGS OF ABRAHAM IN BEAUTIFUL ORIGINAL COLOUR?Abrahami Patriarchae peregrinatio, et vita?. Copper engraving published by Abraham Ortelius as part of his Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, in the (rare) Latin edition of 1595. Beautiful original hand colouring. Size: 35,3 x 46,6 cm.During the sixteenth century in the Low Countries, while Gerard Mercator was the preeminent cartographical innovator and draftsman, his friend and rival Abraham Ortelius became the most important map and atlas publisher. Ortelius? atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, revolutionised geographical publishing. As he expanded it in subsequent editions, he included a number of maps important to the history of mapping the Holy Land; one of which being this beautiful map surrounded by vignettes of the life of the Patriarch Abraham.The map became part of the expanding supplement of historical maps, entitled the Parergon, that Ortelius appended to his atlas of modern maps. Largely the work of the master himself, the maps in the Parergon, and this one in particular, are the best engravings that reflect the widespread sixteenth-century interest in classical geography.Territorial divisions on the map are taken from the story Abraham in Genesis. Ancient tribal names are preserved in the regions of the Philistines, Amelechites, Jebusites, Cenezites, and Gergesites. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah still thrive along the southern Jordan in the ?Valley of the Forest of Salt?, which was to become the Dead Sea. An inset shows the stages of the wanderings of Abraham, from Ur of the Chaldees, the lower Euphrates Valley, to Shechem, Bethel, Damascus, Egypt, and Hebron.In keeping with the title and biblical theme of the engraving, twenty-two medallions depicting scenes from the life of Abraham leaving Ur, sacrificing on the newly built altars at Shechem and Bethel, receiving the promise of the land, the birth of Isaac, the expulsion of Hagar, the sacrifice of Isaac, and the burials of Sarah and Abraham.The Wanderings of Abraham is among the most elaborate of Ortelius? compositions. It demonstrates his combined skills as a cartographer and an artist, and his accomplishment as an historian. Ortelius imaginatively enlivened the earliest period of biblical history for the readers of his Parergon.Price: ?2.950,- (excl VAT/BTW).
