        Regnum Monomotapae

      Acquaforte e bulino, priva di firma. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, consueta piega centrale, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.La mappa, appartiene agli atlanti editi dalla cosiddetta Scuola Cartografica di Colonia. Per circa mezzo secolo, Colonia fu il centro più importante nella produzione cartografica cinquecentesca, dovuta principalmente a rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi che fuggivano dalle persecuzioni religiose. Tra i principali esponenti della Scuola, citiamo Matthaeus Quad, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero e Frans Hogenberg, che ne fu il fondatore. Gli atlanti spesso venivano pubblicati in forma anonima o con l?utilizzo di alcuni pseudonimi proprio a causa dei problemi politici e religiosi che caratterizzavano il periodo storico. Jan Matal o Metellus, francese di nascita è attivo a Louvaine ed a Colonia, dove si rifugia proprio per sfuggire alle persecuzioni dei regnanti cattolici e dove muore nel 1597. Fu tra i maggiori cartografi del tempo e, insieme al Quad e al Hogenberg stesso, il principale esponente della scuola coloniese. Giovanni Botero (1544 ? Torino 1617) è stato un presbitero, scrittore e filosofo italiano, autore delle Relazioni universali, un trattato di geografia politica pubblicato per la prima volta a Roma nel 1591 senza illustrazioni cartografiche. L?opera divenne subito molto importante ed oggetto di studio in tutta Europa, dando inizio praticamente allo studio della demografia. Lambert Andreas (attivo tra il 1590 ed il 1598) fu principalmente editore, tuttavia, alcune delle mappe nelle sue pubblicazioni sono a lui stesso attribuite, sebbene in maniera dubitativa. Dal punto di vista cartografico le mappe sono una derivazione delle carte pubblicate ad Anversa da Abraham Ortelius, per la prima volta nel 1570. L?intaglio delle mappe viene attribuito a Frans Hogenberg. La carta che presentiamo è tratta dall?edizione tedesca delle opere di Giovanni Botero, denominata Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, edita nel 1596 da Lambert Andreas, che nello stesso anno pubblica anche l?edizione con testo latino. La grandissima rarità dell'opere della scuola di Colonia, insieme alla scarsità di informazioni su queste mappe ?segrete?, contribuisce al fascino di questa importante carte, caposaldo di ogni collezione cartografica. Bibliografia: Meurer, Atlantes Colonienses Die Kolner Schule der Atlas Kartographie 1570-1610, pp. 74/78, BOT 2; Ginsberg, Printed Maps of Scandinavia and the Arctic, pp.150/153, 35 & 36; Suarez, Early Mapping of Southeast Asia, pp. 186/7, 104; Burden, The Mapping of North America, p. 115, 90; Shirley, Early Printed Maps of the British Isles, p. 83, 189; Borri, L?Italia nelle antiche Carte, p. 95, 106; Walter, Japan a Cartographic Vision, 20; Tibbets, Arabia in Early Maps, p. 57, 50. "Etching with engraving, without signature. Beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, showing the usual center fold, small spots, otherwise in excellent condition.The map belongs to the so-called atlases published by the Cartographic School of Cologne. For nearly half a century, Cologne was the most important mapmakers center in the XVI century, mainly due to Dutch and Flemish refugees fleeing religious persecution. Among the principal members of the School, include Quad Matthaeus, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero and Frans Hogenberg, who was its founder. The atlases were often published anonymously or using pseudonyms precisely because of some political and religious problems that characterized the era. Jan Matal or Metellus, French-born Louvaine and is active in Cologne, where he took refuge just to escape persecution from the Catholic monarchs and where he died in 1597. He was one of the major cartographers of the time and, together with the Quad and Hogenberg itself as the leader of the Cologne school. Giovanni Botero (1544 - Turin 1617) was a priest, Italian philosopher and writer, author of universal relations, published a treatise on political geography for the first time in Rome in 1591 without cartographic illustrations. The work quickly became very important and studied throughout Europe, beginning almost to the study of demography. Andreas Lambert (active between 1590 and 1598) was primarily a publisher, however, some of the maps in its publications are attributed to himself, albeit in doubt. From the point of view cartographic maps are a derivation of the papers published by Abraham Ortelius in Antwerp, for the first time in 1570. The carving of the maps is attributed to Frans Hogenberg.The present work is taken by the German edition of the works of Giovanni Botero, Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, published in 1596 by Andreas Lambert, that same year also publishes the edition with Latin text. The great rarity of the works of the school of Cologne, together with the paucity of information on these maps ""secret"", contributes to the charm of this important works, the cornerstone of any collection mapping."

Nel 1244, quando Luigi organizza la settima crociata, Joinville decide di seguire il suo Re ed unirsi ai Cavalieri Cristiani. Durante la crociata fu confidente e consigliere del Re. Le sue cronache costituiscono una importante testimonianza sulla figura di S. Luigi e sugli eventi della crociata, narrati con stile semplice ma ricco di dettagli umani e psicologici.

        Les Quinze Ioyes de Mariage, Extraits d'un vieil exemplaire ecrit a la main, passez sont quatre cens ans.

      Rouen : Chez Raphael du petit Val, devant la grand porte du Palais. 1596 . Second 'de Rosset' Edition 12mo, A-H12, 186, [6] pp, printer's woodcut device on title, large woodcut on page 19, t-p and last leaf dust-soiled, a few leaves cut close at head, 19c. green calf a little rubbed. t.e.g., circular engraved armorial bookplate of Edward Grisbach on front pastedown. A libertine satire, thought to have been written early in the 15th century, providing a riotous critique of married women but also an important insight into the economic and social life of the period. The text first appears in two very rare incunable editions, Lyons c.1480 (of which ISTC locates copies at Paris BN and Poitiers BM), and Paris c. 1499 (located in 3 copies, Paris BN, Chantilly and Jena ULB). Sixteenth century editions are given by both Brunet and Tchemerzine as Paris undated, Lyon, C. Nourry 1520, Lyon, Arnoullet undated, all described as "fort rare", followed in 1595 by the first of innumerable editions of the text edited by Francois de Rosset.("... son texte est, aux jugement de M. Jannet, le meilleur de tous ceux qui ont paru avant 1853" - Brunet). After extensive electronic searches we are able to claim that all editions before the 18th century are very rare. Of the 16th and 17th century editions we have located no copy of any edition before 1596, 2 copies of the present edition (Exeter Cathedral and All Souls' Oxford), a copy of a 1607 edition in the British Library and a 1621 edition in the Bodleian Library, both of which are also held by the Austrian National Library. The next edition recorded is 1726, held by Princeton, Yale, UC Irvine, and Bryn Mawr. A 1734 edition is recorded at UCLA, U Cincinnati and National Library of Spain, but the earliest at Harvard and New York PL is the 1837 edition. Apparently an excessively rare text until rediscovered by Jannet in 1853, since which it has been constantly reprinted.

        [ICONES, HABITUS GETUSQUE INDORUM AC LUSITANORUM PER INDIAM VIVENTIUM, TEMPLORUM AEDIUM, ARBORUM, FRUTUM, HERBARUM, AROMATUM]

      Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz ca. 1596 1604. [Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, ca. 1596-1604].. Twenty-nine (of thirty) plates, plus two maps and one extra plate. Oblong quarto. Contemporary Dutch vellum, gilt. Cockled, soiled. Marginal stains on two plates; one plate chipped in margin, not affecting text. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. This extremely rare portfolio of plates consists of fine early impressions of Linschoten's famous views of Portuguese Asia. They are among the first eyewitness illustrations of the East to reach Europe, and were by far the most widely disseminated. Donald Lach has called them "a watershed in Europe's pictorial impression of Asia." They rank among the most influential images of the period, and appeared in the many subsequent editions of Linschoten's works. The illustrations were executed by Joannes and Baptista Doetechum from sketches brought back by Linschoten. Linschoten described the images of the people, places, methods of travel, and animals of Asia as "counterfeits from life," which would give a realistic representation of what he saw, but also a general perception of the reality of the distant East. In the present copy, a large, double-page view of Goa is missing, while two maps, one of Mozambique and one of Ascension Island, have been added. Also added is an untitled panorama of an Indonesian or Malaysian procession. This plate is likely connected to the 1598 Claesz publication of Houtman & Loewijk's account of the first Dutch expedition. It seems clear that the present item is one of the very rare issues of the plates produced for separate sale by Linschoten's publisher, Cornelis Claesz. Claesz sold the images and maps separately from the ITINERARIO..., under a title translated as THE FIGURES AND MAPS OF JAN HUYGHEN. He used Latin and Dutch captions, as in our copy, in order to increase the images' marketability. Four similar sets of Linschoten plates are known, but only one of these, at the Atlas van Stolk in Rotterdam, has a titlepage. The other three copies which, like ours, lack titlepages, are at the Universiteitsbibliotheek in Amsterdam (containing all the plates), the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel and the Amsterdams Scheepvaort Museum (lacking some plates as well as the titlepage). They all have Latin and Dutch text beneath each image. In Tiele's MEMOIR (1867), on page 103 he discusses an edition of the ICONES... containing twenty-nine plates and no titlepage. Ernst Van Den Boogaart, who has produced a fine study of the publication history, iconographic significance, and coded messages of Linschoten's work, examines these issues in great detail. The Linschoten plates were produced to accompany his famed ITINERARIO..., in which he gave his perceptions of the culture, customs, and societies of Asia. Linschoten had lived in Goa for six years from 1583, and while he never ventured far from the Portuguese capital, he did have an "avaricious thirst for knowledge which enabled him to get detailed information of land and sea as far afield as the Spice Islands and China" (Boies Penrose). He released his work at a time when Europe was desperately in need of knowledge about the Far East. A wonderful collection of Asian and early travel iconography, in an exceptionally rare edition.

First edition of all three parts, and EXCEEDINGLY RARE. "This important work contains all the knowledge and learning related to the East and West Indies and navigations to those parts that was available at the end of the sixteenth century. It was held in such high esteem that for nearly a century a copy was given to each ship sailing to India as a guide to the sailing directions. The fact that most copies were in continual use is in no doubt the reason that FINE COPIES , EXPECIALLY WITH ALL CORRECT PLATES AND MAPS , ARE SO VERY RARE" (Hill). Linschoten travelled extensively, he went to Goa between 1583 and 1589, and joined Willem Barents's first and second voyages into the Kara Sea in 1594 and 1595, and he combined his first hand accounts with translations of original Spanish and Portuguese documents. "Linschoten's work, along with Hakluyt's, served as a direct stimulus to the building of the vast English and Dutch overseas empires" (Hill).

        Phytopinax [Greek title] feu envmeratio plantarum ab Herbarijs noftro feculo defcriptarum cum earum differentijs

      Basle: Per Sebastianum Henricpetri, 1596.. Small quarto, pp (22), 669, (9), woodcut vignette to t.p., woodcut portrait, woodcut colophon, various small woodcut initials, title page slightly tender at the margins, and lacking the top corner, though no loss of print, pages browned at margins, but otherwise in remarkably good condition. [Bound with] Icones Plantarum aliqvot hactensis. I page of text, 8 woodcut plates of plants. Contemporary vellum a little marked, and with slight loss towards the base of the spine, Greek title, author and date in ink in probably a Victorian hand on spine, [the date is incorrect by five years], a very early ink inscription on the front endpaper which also carries a modern bookplate lightly attached. [RARE. Although not containing the fine woodcuts of the later work, this preceedes the Pinax by 27 years and is a remarkable foreshadowing of the binomial system - Bauhin states in the preface that, for the sake of clearness, he has applied one name to each plant, and added also some easily recognisable character. This has led many commentators to describe him as the founder of the natural system. Overall a remarkably good copy of an extremely scarce work] .

        Orationi. Novamente Poste in Luce.

Handwritten paper title-label to spine. A few leaves evenly browned , and some leaves with a damp stain to upper margin, mostly faint. a bit of light brownspotting, but overall a nice and clean copy. Very discreet "stamp" to title-page ("tarquin") and a handwritten symbol with initials (a cross with A. L. M. F. at the ends) to verso of title-page. Woodcut allegorical title-vignette, woodcut printer's device to colophon, and large woodcut initial at beginning. A lovely printing. (8), 215, (1). With a preface, in which Speroni's friend Ingolfo Conte de Conti dedicates the work to the Duke of Urbino. ("Di Padoua di 16. Decembre, 1596").. The scarce first edition of Speroni's highly important work of orations, which is responsible for establishing the entire genre of moral orations and for Speroni's reputation as the first Italian orator. Sperone Speroni, one of the important cultural figures of the time, known from Torquato Tasso, his pupil, as "Sperone, who possesses fully all the arts and sciences", counts as the dominant literary figure on the "terraferma" in the generation following Bembo. During the early 1520s Speroni studied with the greatest of the Renaissance philosophers, Pietro Pomponazzi, and by the 1530s had become a major light at Padua, where he became professor of logic and general philosophy. Due to his eminent oration skills and his widely acknowledged and remembered speeches, he became known as the first Italian orator, and as the first modern thinker to incorporate moral themes into his speeches"Il passait pour le premier orateur de l'Italie... il a réussi dans ses poésies par la grâce et la vivacité, enfin, selon Ginguené, "son style en prose est un des meilleurs de cd siècle"... il est le premier Italien qui ait traité dans ce genre des questions de morale." (N.B.G.)He is widely famed for having helped found and shape the Paduan Accademia degli Infiammati (1540).The present work contains his 9 famous orations that each in their way came to influence the development of rhetoric, morals and politics of the Renaissance. In his "In morte del Cardinal Pietro Bembo", he showed that a great literature might be produced if Petrarch were studied and imitated in Italian just as the classics were in Latin, directly influencing the emergence of Petrarch-scholarship.But the most famous of the orations is probably the controversial "Contra le Cortigiane" ["oratin against the Courtesans"], in which he accuses the courtesan of being a glutton and vain, and taking advantage of the name "corte" (court), which associates her erroneously with the noble and honourable environment of the court. "Oh, diabolic pride! Base prostitute, of which state, and of which subjects are you a mistress?". His words finally metamorphose her from woman to serpent or half beast and half devil. (See: Paola Malpezzi Price, "Moderata Fonte: Women and Life in Sixteenth Century Venice", p. 74). The collection of his orations in the first printing became highly influential in the late Renaissance and came to determine the development of the art of writing speeches as well as a certain way of presenting philosophy and moral thought to the people
