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 71 [112]; van den Broecke:118.

        Essais Edition nouvelle, trouvee apres le deceds de l'Autheur, reveue & augmentee par luy d'un tiers plus qu'aux precedentes Impressions.

      Paris Chez Michel Sonnius 1595 - The Definitive Edition and First Folio Edition MONTAIGNE, Michel de. Les Essais.Edition nouvelle, trouvee apres le deceds de l'Autheur, reveue & augmentee par luy d'un tiers plus qu'aux precedentes Impressions. Paris: chez Michel Sonnius, 1595. The Definitive edition and the first folio edition. Folio. [24], 523, [1 blank], 231, [1 errata] pp. Modern maroon morocco. Morocco spine label, raised bands, old gilt edges. Contents skillfully washed and sized, a few marginal tears not affecting text, some scattered pencil marginalia. A very good copy. This edition, edited by the French bluestocking Marie de Jars, Demoiselle de Gournay (1566-1645), has some claim to be the definitive edition of Montaigne's Essais. Mlle de Gournay, who as a very young girl had travelled to Paris to meet her intellectual hero, was Montaigne's adopted daughter. After Montaigne's death, his widow presented Mlle de Gournay with the philosopher's copiously annotated copy of the 1588 edition of his Essais, the last issued during his lifetime and the first to include the third book. Having inserted Montaigne's additions, marked the alterations, and translated all the quotations, Mlle de Gournay sent the proofs to Bordeaux, where the poet Pierre de Brach collated them against another copy with Montaigne's annotations deposited in the convent of the Feuillants in Bordeaux. "The edition thus produced in 1595 has with justice passed as the standard, even in preference to those which appeared in the author's lifetime" (Ency. Brit.). Copies were also issued with the imprint of Abel l'Angelier. STC French Books, p. 317; Adams M-1622 (both l'Angelier imprint); Graesse IV, 579 ("aujourd'hui la principale edition de Montaigne, pour l'authenticite du texte").

        Palaestinae Sive Totius Terrae Promissionis Nova Descriptio (A New Representation of Palestine or all the Promised Land...)

      Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1595. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14 x 19.5". This lovely historical map of the Holy Land extends from Berytus (Beirut) to the Nile Delta and the map reaches south to the Red Sea. Dotted lines marked with numbers show the path of the Israelites out of Egypt over the course of 42 years, from the assembly of the tribes at Raemses to the crossing of the Red Sea, then the eventual journey across the Jordan River just north of the Dead Sea into Palestine. A text box in the upper left describes the region, and a cartouche in the lower left holds the title and scales. Both are elaborately decorated with scrolls, plants, and sculptural figures of animals and centaurs. This is the third edition of the map as recognized by the three ships (van den Broecke 172). It was published in Ortelius's famous "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which is historically considered the first modern atlas. It is in good condition with full margins. Some light staining in the margins and a crease to the lower corner. Latin text on verso. Abraham Ortelius (1527--1598), a Flemish cartographer and geographer, is widely regarded as one of the important and influential cartographers in history. He is known for his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which was the first modern atlas.

        Britannicarum Insularum Typus

      Antwerp, 1595. Copper engraving, 36 x 50 cms, recent-hand-colour, Latin text on verso. First published in 1595, Ortelius’ map, reduced from the two sheet version in the ‘Parergon’, depicts the British Isles in antiquity, using information derived from Diodorus Siculus, Pliny, Appian, Tacitus, Caesar, Strabo and other ancient writers. Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum is generally considered the first modern atlas of the world, originally published in 1570. Ortelius gathered the best available cartographic knowledge and presented it in a consistent style in a single volume, with text. The Theatrum was very decorative and hugely popular amongst the wealthy and educated, running into over forty editions in Latin and the major European languages. For Ortelius himself, however, his atlas of ancient geography, the Parergon, was a "personal work" (Koeman). He regarded himself as an antiquary and, rather than copying other people's maps, he drew the originals himself; they were subsequently engraved for him by the master engraver Jan Wierix.

        Aeneae Troiani Navigatio, as Virgilii sex priores Aeneidos

      Antwerp, 1595. Copper engraving, 34.5 x 49 cms, recent-hand-colour, Latin text on verso. First published in the 1595 edition of the ‘Parergon’ (see below), this map of the eastern Mediterranean depicts wanderings of the legendary Trojan prince Aeneas after the fall of Troy, “according to the first six books of Virgil’s Aeneid”, the epic poem which served as Rome’s foundation myth. Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum is generally considered the first modern atlas of the world, originally published in 1570. Ortelius gathered the best available cartographic knowledge and presented it in a consistent style in a single volume, with text.

On another mission to Charles V in 1535-1536 he heard the news of Moore's execution.

E' questo il primo libro italiano di ginecologia. La prima edizione del 1595 è di incredibile rarità, rare sono anche le successive edizioni del XVII sec. in quanto era l' unico testo in volgare dell' epoca soggetto ad un uso pratico molto intenso. Assai importante è la prima descrizione del taglio cesareo dove afferma che il bacino stretto è una precisa indicazione per l' intervento.

      Frankfurt am Main:: [s.n.],, 1595. 8vo. 8vo (155 x 93 mm). [30] pp., [1 blank leaf], 560 pp. Woodcut title ornament, woodcut initials. Fresh, clean copy (single wormhole in text). Contemporary vellum tooled in silver-gilt, edges gauffered and gilt'; lacking fore-edge ties, slightly rubbed, small tear to front pastedown at gutter. PROVENANCE: ownership inscription on title (Hermannij H L) of Hermann IV, Landgraf von Hesse (1607-1658, son of the dedicatee); Nordkirchen Castle bookplate.***& & FIRST EDITION, in a presentation binding, of Henri Estienne's "strangest work" (Schreiber), a dialogue lampooning the archaizing Latin style of the Flemish humanist Justus Lipsius (Joest Lips, 1547-1606). Although later recognized as the "founder of seventeenth-century neo-Stoicism" and one of the most influential prose stylists of his age, during his lifetime and the following century Lipsius, an ally of the Jesuits of Louvain, was harshly criticized, often no doubt for religious motives. Critics mocked not only the elliptical Tacitean Latin style that he affected in his latter years (a departure from the Ciceronian style of his early works), but also his character and supposedly inconstant religious beliefs. Estienne's satire reveals the tendency of his contemporaries to mix questions of rhetoric with religious politics, for in the middle of his literary spoof Estienne interjects a long and apparently incongruous debate on the Turks (with whom the Catholic powers were suspected of harboring an alliance), against whom he urges a war of extermination. Scaliger, as cited by Renouard, reported that this led to Estienne's book itself being ridiculed and mockingly called De Latinitate Lipsiana adversus Turcam. & & This copy, with its prettily tooled binding and finely gauffred edges, was inscribed by the learned Hermann (IV), Landgraf of Hesse, son of the dedicatee Moritz ”the [even more] Learned” Landgraf of Hesse (1572-1632). The Schloss Nordkirchen bookplate combines the arms of Mária von Plettenberg-Wittem (1809-1861) and her husband Graf Miklós Ferenc Esterházy de Galántha (1804-1885), to whom she brought the castle (constructed in the early 18th century) as part of her dowry. Along with its "superb library," Schloss Nordkirchen passed in 1903 to Herzog Engelbert-Maria von Arenberg (1872-1949), the 9th duke of Arenberg, who also inherited his father's library; his son Engelbert-Karl (1899-1974), the 10th duke, began selling off the ducal library in 1951 (cf. Claudine Lemaire, “La bibliothèque des ducs d’Arenberg, une première approche,” Liber amicorum Herman Liebaers (1984], 81-106).& & Adams S-1764; VD16 E-4017; Renouard 157.2; Schreiber 225.

Provenance: Contemporary Latin motto inscribed on front free endpaper, "Fide Sed Cui Vide [trust, but be careful, in whom]/ Johannes"; Harlan Nissen, his sale, Christie's 8th November 1996, lot 103. THE FIRST TRUE "ATLAS"-THE WORD CHOSEN BY GERARD MERCATOR TO DESIGNATE A COLLECTION OF MAPS AND ONLY LATER ADOPTED BY ALL GEOGRAPHERS First edition of the first part of Mercator's Atlas, published after Mercator's death by his son Rumold, to proceed the already published second and third parts "Galliae Tabule Geographicae" (1585 and "Italia" (1589). Typesetting of the preliminary text and of descriptive text to maps corresponding generally to Koeman's state A. Most maps are in Koeman state B, although maps V, VI, XIV, XV, XVII, XVIII, XX, XXIII are in state A (where there is a discernable difference between the two states). For nearly sixty years, during the most important and exciting period in the history of modern mapmaking, Gerard Mercator was the supreme cartographer, his name, second only to Ptolemy, synonymous with the form of map projection still in use today. Although not the inventor of this type of projection, he was the first to apply it to navigational charts in such a form that compass bearings could be plotted on charts in straight lines, thereby providing seamen with a solution to an age-old problem of navigation at sea. The influence of his revolutionary ideas transformed land surveying, and his research and calculations led him to break away from Ptolemy's conception of the size and outline of the continents. Unlike the work of Abraham Ortelius, a contemporary and equally celebrated cartographer, Mercator's maps are original. While Ortelius engaged in the reduction and generalization of already existing maps, Mercator checked current knowledge of the earth's topography against its fundamental sources and drew maps in an original manner. Mercator was born in Rupelmonde in East Flanders. He studied in Louvain under Gemma Frisius, a Dutch astronomer and mathematician, and began his career as a cartographer in that city, where the excellence of his work eventually won him the patronage of Charles V. In order to escape religious persecution, he moved in 1552 to Duisburg. There, he continued to produce maps, globes and instruments, including his most celebrated work, a world map on eighteen sheets drawn to his new projection (1569). In later life he devoted himself to the preparation of his three-volume collection of maps to which, for the first time, the word "atlas" was applied. The word was chosen, he wrote, "to honor the Titan, Atlas, King of Mauritania, a learned philosopher, mathematician, and astronomer." Mercator's sons and grandsons were all cartographers and made their contributions in various ways to the great atlas. His son Rumold, in particular, was responsible for the complete edition of 1595.
