Titolo ms. al dorso ornato. Prima edizione delle prime due opere; seconda edizione per il De Militia, trattato sull'arte della guerra delle milizie romane, prese ad esempio di tattica e strategia che l’autore pretendeva di emulare nella guerra contro gli spagnoli. L’umanista belga (1547-1606) fu sopratutto un attento filologo e studioso del pensiero politico, a lui si deve la corrente del "tacitismo" che mescola con attenzione le intuizioni di Machiavelli, al centro di un forte dibattito critico, con le letture di epoca romana di Cornelio Tacito.

        Rime di diversi in lode dell' Illustriss ma Sig ra Chiara Cornara degnissima Capitania in Verona

      Verona: Girolamo Discepolo, 1596. 4to (187 x 142 mm). [64] pp. Italic type. Woodcut Cornaro arms on title, type-ornament page borders throughout, historiated woodcut initials, woodcut or typographic tail-pieces, last page with typographic picture. Some minor staining. Original long-stitched carta rustica.*** Unrecorded separate edition of a collection of verses in honor of Chiara Dolfin Cornaro, daughter of the powerful Paduan financier and architectural patron Alvise Cornaro, and wife of the Capitano (military commander) of Verona, Giovanni Cornaro (from a different branch of the family). The anthology was published on the occasion of their departure from Verona, for Venice, Cornaro having been elected to the Council of Ten (he would become Doge of Venice in 1624, four years before his death). It is distinguished by the contributions of a woman: among the short verse contributions are three poems and a 24-page speech in honor of the Capitania by Ersilia Spolverini (ca. 1572- after 1597), a close friend of Chiara Cornara, and the only female contributor. The present edition is unrecorded by EDIT-16, but the contents appeared during the same year, with a variant part-title, in a larger verse anthology published in honor of both spouses, Varie compositioni scritte in lode de l'illustrissimo sig. Giouanni Cornaro, capitanio di Verona; & de l'illustrissima sig. Chiara Delfina sua consorte, Verona: Girolamo Discepolo, 1596 (Cicogna 2388; EDIT-16 CNCE 58564). (That edition is paginated [4], 233 [i.e.236] pp., according to EDIT-16, and the present edition is unpaginated.) Discepolo also issued a separate edition of Spolverini's oration, Oratione in lode dell'illust.ma signora Chiara Cornara, in which her name is not given (CNCE 58549). During the same year, and no doubt at the same time as these editions, Discepolo also published 2 Latin poems by Spolverini in praise of her friend, in an 8-page pamphlet titled Ad illustrissimam Claram Corneliam poemata duo (EDIT-16 CNCE 58560; those poems seem also to have appeared in the Varie compositioni). This literary oeuvre by Spolverini, entirely dedicated to her friend, "constitutes one of the most sustained bodies of encomiastic work written by a woman in praise of a female patron at this time" (Cox, p. 297-8). Evidence from another poem in the Varie compositioni "seems to indicate that the oration was commissioned from Spolverini by the ladies of Verona and delivered by her at a parting ceremony for Chiara Dolfin" (op. cit., p. 298). Copies of the present nearly vanished edition, as well, no doubt, as the other separately published Latin poems and the oration, were probably distributed to these ladies during the party, or otherwise circulated privately. Most of the contributors to the Rime, and to the larger collection, were patrician members of the Accademia Filarmonica of Verona, the first musical academy of Italy, founded in 1543. They include Marco Verità, Mario Dondonino, Aurelio Prandino, Alessandro Lafranchino, Ottavio Cipolla, Policarpo Palermo, Bartolomeo Tortelletti, Donato Salutello, Adriano Grandi, Orlando Pescetti, and Jacopo Battistella. The Cornaro family were prominent members of the Accademia, and the Rime are dedicated by Orlando Pescetti to two young sons of the honoree Chiara Cornara (she went on to have twelve children). Among the reasons Pescetti gives for dedicating the collection to these young boys is their participation as singers in his play or musical intermezzo Aristoclia during the last Carneval, where, he effuses, they displayed so much grace and talent in spite of their tender age, and which was performed with such magnificent costumes, thanks to the generosity of their father and all his family. Not in OCLC or EDIT-16, but there is a copy at the Biblioteca Civica in Verona. Cf. Alison Smith, "Women and Political Sociability in Late Renaissance Verona: Ersilia Spolverini's Elogio of Chiara Cornaro," in Donne di Potere del Rinascimento: Arcangeli, ed. (Rome, 2008), pp. 405-416; and Virgina Cox, Lyric Poetry by Women of the Italian Renaissance (2013), pp. 297-298.

Anden del bygger for størstedelen på den første danske lægebog ved Christian Pedersen fra 1533, men indeholder også en del originalobservationer og kure, ligesom han introducerer danske navne for medicinske planter hovedsageligt fra Slesvig. - Lauritz Nielsen Nr. 493 - Thesaurus: 273 - Bibl. Danica I: 799-800. PESTBOGEN er ligeledes af største sjældenhed. Den skriver sig ind i en tradition af pestskrifter, som startede med omtale i Christian Pedersens bog om urtevand, Morsing og Henrik Smids bog om "Pestilentzes Aarsag" og de giver recepter og foreskrifter på de midler, som skal anvendes imod pesten. Bartskær anfører, at på grund af krigen kan være vanskeligt at anskaffe de nødvendige ingredienser fordi tyskerne har besat de områder hvor den bedste medicin kan købes.Lauritz Nielsen nr. 494. - Thesaurus I, 274. - Bibl.

      presso Altobello Salicato, 1596. Cm. 15,5, cc. (24) 187 + 1.c.b. Legatura antica in piena pergamena molle con traccia di titoli su tassello al dorso. Sguardie posteriori. Tracce di polvere al margine esterno (più marcate in alcune carte centrali), fioriture sparse, qualche macchietta e sporadici piccoli aloni. Nel complesso esemplare più che discreto. Leonardo Fioravanti (1517-1588), medico bolognese, fu una figura atipica nel panorama scientifico del tempo in quanto annoverabile tra i pochi seguaci di Paracelso. Così la voce F. nel Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (vol. 48, a cura di Anna Mainardi): "Si distinse per un accentuato interesse alla sperimentazione che lo indusse a trascurare nella pratica la rigida separazione consuetudinaria dei ruoli dei medici, degli speziali e dei cerusici. Il suo tentativo di fare del medico il protagonista dell'intero processo terapeutico, dalla diagnosi alla preparazione dei farmaci alla chirurgia e il fatto che egli scrivesse in volgare i suoi trattati, seguendo anche in ciò l'esempio di Paracelso, furono spesso considerati lesivi della dignità della professione medica ed esposero il F. a denigrazioni e persecuzioni". L'opera è divisa in cinque libri: "Nel primo de' quali si tratta de' secreti più importanti nella professione medicinale. Nel secondo s'insegnano molti secreti appartenenti alla Cirugia; et si mostra il modo d'esercitarla. Nel terzo si contengono i secreti più veri, et più approvati nell'arte dell'Alchimia. Nel quarto si scrivono molti belletti che usano le donne per apparer belle. Nel quinto si comprendoni i secreti più notabili in diverse arti et esercitij". Cfr. Iccu..

      Ad volume I: N.pl. (Heidelberg), in Bibliopolio Commeliniano, 1596 - 1603. Ad volume II: N.pl. (Heidelberg), Ex officina Commeliniana, 1601. 8vo. 2 volumes in 1: (XVI),319,(1 blank); 30,(2 blank); 150; (VIII),152,(3 omissa),(1 blank) p.; (XVI) p.,260 columns. 19th century half calf. 17 cm (Ref: (VD16 ZV 14910; Hoffmann 3,478 and 479: 'Eine sehr correcte Ausgabe, zu der die griechischen Scholien gehören'; Brunet 5,782: 'édition peu commune, et qui mérite d'être mieux connue (...) en France'; Dibdin 2,486/7: 'a very excellent edition.

The composition of this Smitskamp item is different, it has a different general title; there is also a discrepancy in date between some parts; one of the parts, the Heinsius-part, does not seem to have the 3 p. Omissa which we find in our edition) (Details: (The composition of this convolute is explained at the beginning of our note below) 2 volumes in 1 binding. All parts belonging to the first volume have their own title. All title pages have a different printer's mark and a different layout. The general title of the first volume announces the text and Latin translation, and the contributions by Scaliger, Casaubon and Heinsius. A woodcut printer's mark of Commelinus heirs adorns this first general title, it depicts a woman, Veritas, sitting on a heap of defeated warriors, the legend is in Greek: HÊ ARETÊ NIKA TÊN DUNAMIN. The first 2 title pages of volume I,2 show 2 different versions of the printer's mark of Hieronymus Commelinus, one small, one big, both depicting a woman (Veritas), the naked truth, seated on a cubus, holding a radiant sun in her right hand. In her left hand she holds an opened book and a palm leaf. Her feet rest on the globe; the garland of fruit which surrounds her shows a ribbon with the text in Greek: Alêtheia Pandamatôr (Allmighty Truth) The second volume, containing the scholia, is adorned with a nice woodcut architectural border, and has no printer's mark) (Condition: Dull 19th century binding. Cover scuffed, front joint broken along the front side; paper slightly yellowing; small stamp on the first title; some old ink underlinings and annotations) (Note: This convolute is a combination of 2 Theocritus editions, the first of which was published by Hieronymus Commelinus in 1596, and the second by Johannes Commelinus in 1601 and in 1603. Volume 1 consist of 3 parts, the second of which in its turn consists of 2 parts. The composition is as follows: volume I: part 1, 2,1 & 2,2, and 3, and volume II. The first part of the 3 parts of volume I (vol. I,part 1) bears the general title, dated 1603, and it contains the Greek text, accompanied by a facing Latin translation. It numbers (XVI),319 p. The second part in its turn, (vol. I, part 2) consists of 2 parts, and has as general title for parts 2,1 and 2,2: Iosephi Scaligeri Iuli Caesaris F. emendationes ad Theocriti, Moschi & Bionis Idyllia. Isaaci Casauboni Theocriticarum lectionum libellus. It is dated 1596, and it numbers 30 p. It (I,2,1) contains the emendations of Scaliger only; then follows part I,2,2 containing the lectiones or observations made by Casaubon. It's title is: Isaaci Casauboni Theocriticarum libellus. Editio altera, uberior & melior. It is dated 1596, and numbers 150 p. Follows the last part of this first volume (I,3), the part with the emendations and observations of D. Heinsius: Danielis Heinsii emendationes et notae in Theocriti Idyllia bucolica. Accesserunt Epigrammata eiusdem, & Idyllia quaedam ab eodem & Hugone Grotio ita translata ut versus versui respondeat. It is dated 1603, and numbers (VIII),152,(3) p. The second volume (volume II) contains the Scholia edited by Zacharias Kalliergês: SCHOLIA HEURISKOMENA EIS TOU THEOKRITOU EIDULLIA, EK DIAPHORÔN ANTIGRAphôn etc. Its date is 1601, and it numbers (XVI) p. and 260 columns. The complicated structure of this convolute mirrors events within the printer's family of the Commelins. In 1597 Hieronymus, ca 47 years old, died in Heidelberg, probably victim to the plague. After his death his affairs were looked after by his less famous Amsterdam cousin Jan Commelin (Johannes Commelinus), who lived there since 1578. Jan was a publisher in Amsterdam since 1594. From the correspondence of Scaliger and the Flemish scholar Janus Gruterus, who taught in Heidelberg since 1592, it is clear that Jan Commelin was often in Heidelberg for business. He managed to keep on publishing in that city a great number of Commelinus editions till 1604. It seems that Jan Commelin found in the Heidelberg stock the Theocritus edition of 1596, and decided to improve the saleability of it by adding important material produced by Daniel Heinsius, and by adding the scholia/commentary of Kalliergês, called by Heinsius Graecus interpres. (See p. ):(3 recto, of the preface to Heinsius' part). This augmented edition called of course for the replacement of the old title of 1596 for a new title, with the name of Heinsius on it, dated 1603. The above mentioned Smitskamp copy, containing the contribution of Heinsius and scholia of Kalliergês, however preserves the original title of 1596. (See for Johannes Commelinus and the Heidelberg connection NNBW 10,199/200) § The Greek poet Theocritus, ca. 300 - ca. 260 BC, was a native of Syracuse. He is called the father or inventor of bucolic and pastoral poetry, and the reviver of the mime. His fame chiefly rests on his Idylls, written in hexameter verse and in the Doric dialect. His outstanding dramatic, descriptive and lyric qualities are best displayed in his bucolic poetry. Moschus, ca. 150 BC and also from Syracuse, is according to Suidas the next after Theocritus to write pastoral poetry. He was an imitator, like Bion. The style of Simmias of Rhodes, ca. 300 BC, shows affinity to Theocritus. § The French/Flemish publisher Hieronymus Commelinus, (Jérôme Commelin) 1560 - 1597, who established himself in Heidelberg in 1587, brought together for this Theocritus edition works of the best classical scholars of his day. In the preface to the contribution of Josephus Justus Scaliger (1540-1609) dated 1596, Hieromymus Commelinus tells that he received from Scaliger, when he visited him in Leiden, a valuable book and an emended version of a poem of Simmias, called 'Ovum'. To thank him for this magnificent gifts he promised his host to publish it, together with his notes on Theocritus and other bucolic poets. (Vol. I,1 p. 3/4) Commelinus added to the collection also a revised and augmented edition of an early work of the French scholar Isaac Casaubon, 1559-1614. (M. Pattison, 'Isaac Casaubon', London 1875, p. 534) This work of Casaubon was first published in 1584 in Geneva by Vignon as an appendix/ commentary to an edition of bucolic, georgic and gnomic poetry, as 'Isaaci Hortiboni Theocriticarum lectionum libellus'. (See for this 1584 edition: H. Parenty, 'Isaac Casaubon, Helléniste', Geneva, 2009, p. 53/55) In the preface to his part of the book (I,2,3) the young Dutch classical scholar Daniel Heinsius, 1580-1655, tells us that Johannes Commelinus (the successor of Hieronymus Commelinus) asked him to send him his notes and emendations to Theocritus. Heinsius did so, he says, with the consent and help of both Scaliger and Casaubon. Heinsius, who was the favourite student of Scaliger in Leiden, adds also the Latin translation of a number of Idyllia of his own hand and of his friend Hugo Grotius. Added is also a philological tour de force, a translation into Doric Greek of the 10th ecloge of Vergil, produced by his revered teacher Scaliger. The second volume of this book contains the scholia to Theocritus published by the Greek printer and wandering scholar Zacharias Kalliergês (Calliergis), 1473-1524, who copied manuscripts in the 'officina' of Aldus Manutius. In 1515 he produced a Pindarus edition which was to last 3 centuries. His Theocritus edition, the first which included scholia, dates from 1516.

        Daemonolatreiae libri tres

      Daemonolatreiae libri tres by Nicolai Remigii (Remy), 1596. Complete. Bound in a facsimiled, Renaissance-looking leather binding (vellum appearance) with green ribbon ties and a tooled spine and front cover (see photos). Very good condition. Minor flaws include the first few pages with browning on the bottom right corner, and two initial pages with a very small and hard to see worm hole (see close up photo of title page). Rare, significant, and infamous book on witchcraft and demonology. Rarely comes to market. I find only modern reproductions on the market...from my searches. Again, ultra-rare.This book is considered one of the most important books on demons and witchcraft. "Remy was a judge for the Duchy of Lorraine and tried many hundreds of witchcraft cases, sending as many as 800 of the accused to a slow and terrible death at the stake. As a result of his vast "experience", this present work was considered one of the most influential of the many works on witchcraft and demonology that came about as a result of the great witchcraze of the 16th and 17th centuries. It definitely influenced the work of several later demonologists such as Francesco Maria Guazzo and Martin Del Rio. Remy's work described a number of witchcraft cases and emphasized the truth of the diabolic pact supposedly made between a witch and the Devil himself and the horrible acts claimed to take place at the witches Sabbat. It also highlighted the fact that many witches were forced into the Devil's service either through trickery or violence, which was a change from several earlier works which claimed that witches made a willing choice to do evil. This in no way meant that Remy urged mercy for those who chose the dark path. Quite the opposite was true in fact. Remy draws on many ancient and contemporary sources for his arguments and stressed that the evil power of witches and other adherents to the Devil must be thoroughly rooted out of society by rope and flame. Remy is generally considered one of the more virulent demonologists, in line with other anti-witch writers like Jean Bodin or Heinrich Kramer. His work was influential until the end of the 17th century, when a belief in witches and demons was on a steep decline, and this book was frequently cited and reprinted. Montague Summers, the eccentric early 20th century occult historian, lauds praise on Remy for his determination to root out witchery by any means possible, even if that meant the torture and death of innocents. While repugnant to our modern morality, this work is important to an understanding of the witchcraze of the early modern period." (Amazon)

        Reliqua librorum Friderici II. Imperatoris, de arte venandi cum avibus, cum Manfredi Regis additionibus. Ex membranis vetustis nun primum edita. Albertus Magnus de falconibus, asturibus, & accipitribus.

      Augsburg, Johannes Praetorius (Hans Schultes), 1596. - 8vo. (16), 414, (2) pp. With magnificent double-page woodcut illustration and woodcut printer's device on title page (repeated on recto of final leaf). 17th century mottled calf, spine gilt. First edition, extremely rare. "The first edition of a classic on hawking, held to be the best and most comprehensive treatise, which, with original Italian and Latin manuscripts, has been the study and research by many writers" (Schwerdt). This classic treatise on ornithology and falconry was written by Frederick II (1194-1250), Holy Roman Emperor. Frederick's original manuscript is lost, but his work exists in two book versions, by his two sons Manfredi and Enzo. The most famous copy of this treatise is the manuscript commissioned by Manfredi, between 1258 and 1266, and contains twelve short additions made by himself. The present publication is the editio princeps of that version; the "1560 Venice" and "1578 Basel" editions mentioned by Lallemant, Souhart, etc. are spurious. The woodcut faithfully reproduces one of the miniatures in Manfredi's version (in the Vatican library): an expressive image of the Emperor with two falconers at his side. Also includes the treatise "De Falconibus Asturibus, & Accipitribus" (p. 357 ff.) by a German dominican philosopher and theologian Alberto Magno, written in Cologne between 1262 and 1280 and first time printed in Rome in 1478.

Eine vollständige Ausgabe des Fronsperger im Prachteinband wird derzeit beim Antiquariat Forum BV in den Niederlanden für den Preis von 18.500 angeboten. Bei Leonhard Fronspergers Kriegsbuch handelt es sich um das bedeutendste Quellenwerk über das frühneuzeitliche Kriegswesen. Es beschreibt Kriegsrecht und Kriegsartikeln, Wehr- und Heeresordnung, die Gefechtslehre der Truppe sowie die Verwendung der Artillerie. Das Buch behandelt aber auch die Bewaffnung, Kanonen, die Ausrüstung, das Proviantwesen sowie Feldverschanzungen und den Kampf um befestigte Plätze. Neben ausführlichen Darstellungen und Beschreibungen der Kriege wieder den Türken, enthält der letzte Teil auch Predigten von Luther gegen die Türken. Leonhard Fronsperger (ca. 1520-1575) gilt als der bedeutendste deutsche Schriftsteller des Militärwesens des 16. Jahrhunderts. 1566 wurde er im Türkenkrieg vom Kaiser zum Feldgerichtsschultheiß erhoben. Sein Kriegsbuch war sehr beliebt und enthielt derart viele als wichtig und unentbehrlich angesehene Darstellungen, dass es selbst 1819 noch nachgedruckt wurde. Jost (Jodocus) Amman (1539 - 1591) war ein Zeichner, Kupferätzer und -stecher, Formschneider, Maler und Buchautor. Der gebürtige Schweizer kam 1561 nach Nürnberg, erhielt 1577 das Bürgerrecht der Stadt und lebte dort bis zu seinem Tod. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten und fruchtbarsten Zeichner und Formschneider seiner Zeit. Er gab zahlreiche Bücher mit Holzschnitten heraus, unter anderem Stammbücher, Turnierbücher, Kriegsbücher, Wappenbücher, Trachtenbücher, Kräuterbücher, Arzneibücher, Tierbücher und Hebammenbücher. Außerdem schuf er Illustrationen zur Bibel, zu Ausgaben antiker und zeitgenössischer Autoren und zu Sachbüchern verschiedenster Bereiche. Das wohl bedeutendste Kriegsbuch der frühen Neuzeit, das mit den weltberühmten Kupferstichen und Textholzschnitten Jost Ammans reich geschmückt ist, ist heute äußerst selten.

        Antique Print-PLAN-BRAGA-BRACARA AUGUSTA-PORTUGAL-Braun-Hogenberg-1596

      - Antique print, titled: 'Nova Bracarae Auguste Descriptio.' - A bird eye's view / plan of Bracara Augusta in Portugal. A 16th-century map of Braga, when the city was enclosed by its mediaeval wall. The large building in the centre is the Cathedral, while the Episcopal Palace and courtyards can be seen above the cathedral and the ancient Castle of Braga. Etching / engraving with original hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This plan was first published in the 1596 ed. of the famous six volume town book : 'Civitatis Orbis Terrarum.', published in Cologne, 1572-1617 by Georg Braun. The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. The sixth and the final volume appeared in 1617. This great city atlas, edited by Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg (he created the first four volumes of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum. The fifth and sixth volume was created by Simon van den Neuwel (Novellanus), eventually contained 546 prospects, bird-eye views and map views of cities from all over the world. Braun was greatly assisted in his project by the close, and continued interest of Abraham Ortelius, whose Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was, as a systematic and comprehensive collection of maps of uniform style, the first true atlas. The Civitates, indeed, was intended as a companion for the Theatrum,but appeared even more succesfull. Over a hundred of different artists and cartographers, the most significant of whom was Antwerp artist Georg (Joris) Hoefnagel (1542-1600), engraved the copper-plates from drawings. He not only contributed most of the original material for the Spanish and Italian towns but also reworked and modified those of other contributors. After Hoefnagel's death his son Jakob continued the work for the Civitates. A large number of Jacob van Deventer's (1505-1575), also known as Jacob Roelofszof, unpublished works, plans of towns of the Netherlands were copied, as were Stumpf's woodcuts from the Schweizer Chronik of 1548, and Munster's German views from the 1550 and 1572 editions of his Cosmographia. Another important source for maps was the Danish cartographer Heinrich van Rantzau (1526-1599), beter known under his Latin name Rantzovius, who provided maps of Northern Europe, specially of Danish cities. The Civitates provided a uniquely comprehensive view of urban life at the turn of the sixteenth century. Other sources were the maps of Sebastian Munster from around 1550 and , and of. Braun added to the maps figures in local dress. This feature was anticipated in Hans Lautensack's etched view of Nuremberg, 1552, those groups of citizens in the rural foreground add further authenticity to the highly accurate topographical details of what was effectively Germany's cultural capital at that time. Braun's motives for adding figures to the views, however, went further: as stated in his introduction to book 1, he believed, perhaps optimistically, that his plans would not in consequence be scrutinized for military secrets by the Turks, as their religion forbade them from looking on representations of the human form.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Frans Hogenberg' after an anonymous artist. Author: Georg Braun (1542-1622), a cleric of Cologne. Engraver: Franz Hogenberg (1536-1588). Condition: Good, given age. Original middle fold, as issued. Several small stains in print and margin.

Contemporary and largely uniform blind-tooled vellum.

      STCN 101908407, 850528100, 850527104, 850527074 (5 sets of all 4 volumes plus individual volumes); cf. Guibert, Descartes bibliographie ... 17e siècle (recording Latin and French eds. only). Surprisingly rare complete set of the greatly expanded second Dutch edition of the collected works of René Descartes, translated from the Latin by Jan Hendrik Glazemaker, here adding well over 300 pages of additional works. Descartes (1596-1650), one of the most brilliant and original thinkers of all time, was born and educated as a Catholic in a Protestant region in France's Loire valley, but worked as a military engineer for the Dutch Protestant army in his early years and returned to the Dutch Republic in 1628 to study further at the universities there. He remained for twenty years, taking advantage of the Republic's intellectual freedom and Amsterdam's position as the most important centre of the world book trade. Descartes established our modern notions of empirical science and built the foundations for the work of Spinoza, Newton, Leibniz and many others. His work ranged widely over the fields of philosophy, mathematics, mechanics, light and optics (including practical aspects, such as lens grinding and telescopes), astronomy, ballistics, anatomy, sexual reproduction, music, "passions of the soul" and much more, all covered in the present collected works. In nearly every field he made major contributions to knowledge, often debunking widely held beliefs. Volume 4 contains his correspondence.The principal works named in the four titles above are accompanied by numerous additional works Some browning at the end of the main text in volume 1 and in the middle of volume 2. Still in very good condition with further only occasional minor browning or foxing and a small marginal tear in one title-page, and with large margins. The bindings slightly dirty but still very good. The definitive Dutch edition of Descartes's works: nearly 3000 pages in 4 volumes.

        Äußerst seltener Mode-Einblattdruck.Las mich mein Lobben tragen / darnach thu du nit fragen / ist doch nur Affenspil. Original-Kupferstich.

      ohne Verleger, Ort oder Jahr. (Köln, J. Bussemacher?), vor 1596.. Format des Abdruckes ca. 31 x 23,5 cm, Blattgröße ca. 38,2 x 27,3 cm. Montagereste am linken Rand, beide Ränder etwas gebräunt, das Blatt mit sehr vereinzelten kleinen Braunspuren und schwache Knickspuren, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. Nicht bei Faust, Harms oder Drugulin. - Äußerst selten und von uns nur in der Staatsbibliothek Berlin nachweisbar. Der Druck nimmt die im 16. Jahrhundert besonders in den Niederlanden unter Bürgerlichen beliebte Modeerscheinung des Tragens großer Halskrausen auf die Schippe. In Person eines Affens, der besagte Krause um den Hals trägt und dem Betrachter des Blattes einen Spiegel vorhält, erzählt unser Einblattdruck, daß der Modenarr mit seinem wahren Ebenbild im Spiegel als das wiedergegeben wird, was er wirklich ist: ein Affe. „Besich in diesem Spiegel fein wie gros und breit dein Lobben (d.i. eine Halskrause) sein, hast Du sie grosser dan ich thu, bleib du ein Af, las mich mit Rhu", Darunter zwei Dreizeiler: „An meim geschlecht ich nit verzag / Das ich die grossen lobben trag / Dan nachzuthuen ist affenspil / Deer brüder mein sindt noch gar vil / Deen halt Ich diesen Spiegel fuer / Damit ein Aff den andern ruer." Oben links eine Notenzeile: Cantat Simia (Lasse fare mj), in der oberen rechten Kartusche ein Zweizeiler in Latein, Italienisch, Französisch und Niederländisch, den Schluß nahelegend, daß das Blatt für den Export (aus dem Raum Köln?) entstand: „Simia quod facinent homines imitatur ut ipsum / Simia sic hominum quilibet esse cupit. - La cose me piacce coussi / Parque tu lasse fare mi. - Faisant la Singe uns grand meruaille / Pend dnus homme à soy pareille. - Het past tverstant end reden mijn / Hoe dat den mensch en Sinne mach fijn." - Die rechte Hälfte einer Folge von 2 Einblattdrucken (das Gegenstück zeigt einen Narren mit Spiegel, siehe SBB) deren Motiv in Th. de Bry's ‚Emblemata saecularia' (1596) in verkleinerter Wiedergabe und unter Herausnahme der Bildunterschrift (bei de Bry stattdessen: Aspice ut ingentes...) verwendet wurde, auch verwendete de Bry dort das Wort ‚Krös' statt ‚Lobben' (siehe Hollstein 240-287).

        Escutcheon with coat-of-arms of Willem van Dam (Amersfoort 1596 - Leiden 1673), mennonite and mayor of the city of Amersfoort, depicted with coats-of-arms of his grandparents Van Dam, Leemputte (Van Leemput), Verborch, De Berges ten Essendelle.

      17th century. Oil on vellum, framed in gilt frame. Good condition, frame slighly damaged. (31x24cm). On the back in ink some notes on the genealogy of the Van Dam family. Willem van Dam (Amersfoort 1596 - Leiden 1673) was a mennonite who fled in 1618 with his brother Peter to Holstein where he founded Friedrichstadt on the Eider. He was the son of Peter van Dam and Digna van Leemputte. Peter van Dam was a son of Pieter van Dam and Marie Verborch (also written as Verburgh). Digna van Leemputte was a daughter of Jan Jacobsz. van Leemputte and Catharina de Berges ten Essendelle (famous as Trijn van Leemput in Utrecht for demolishing the castle Vredenburgh in 1577). In 1626 after the death of stadhouder Maurits the political situation changed and the Van Dam brothers returned. In 1629 Willem became mayor of Amersfoort. When this city was besieged by Ernesto and his cousin Raimondo Montecuccoli on the 13th of August 1629 Van Dam decided to surrender the city a day later. Van Dam was prosecuted and banished for life for this betrayal. The Staten of Utrecht changed that verdict in 1631. In 1635 he became mayor of Amersfoort again and would serve 11 times more in this capacity. In 1648 he became member of the Staten-Generaal of the Netherlands. In the disastrous year 1672 he fled with his second wife Johanna, daughter of Rombout Hogerbeets, to Leiden, where he would die a year later. His son Pieter van Dam became lawyer (Advocaat ) for the VOC and secretary to the Heren XVII. Descendants of Van Dam married with Van Zegwaart, Graafland, Pit, Wttewael van Stoetwegen. H152
