Rome, Giacomo Luna, Tipografia Medicea Orientale (in Typographia Linguarum externarum), 1596. 4to. (44), 480 pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title. First - and likely only - edition. The first large-scale Syriac grammar, the third ever written (following those of Caninius, 1554, and Widmanstetter, 1555). Composed by the Maronite priest Jiris Ibn Mikha'il ibn 'Amira, it was printed by the Maronite scholar Ya'qub ibn Hilal (Giacomo Luna), who worked at the Medicean Press under Raimondi and was responsible for the Arabic and Syriac publications issued between 1590 and 1594. In 1595 he started printing on his own, and possibly took over some of the types of the Vatican Press. The work is listed as a Propaganda Press imprint ("olim typis nostris impressi") in Amadatius's 1773 "Catalogus", which shows the continuity that was felt to exist between the Medicean Press, the intermediate stage of Luna and Stephanus Paulinus, and the Propaganda Press. In the preface Raimondi is mentioned as the instigator of the work. - The 24 pt Syriac "serto" types were cut in 1590 by Jean Cavaillon for the Medicean Press. In the beginning a Syriac alphabet is presented, in three different scripts: "estrangelo" (this word possibly here used for the first time), "serto", and a Nestorian script possibly in type. This Nestorian script, a cursive form of estrangelo, is introduced here for the first time. In 1633 a slightly different type-face was used for Bellarmino's Catechism. - Some browning and brownstaining throughout, as common; the first few quires loosened. 18th century library stamps to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Girolamo Discepolo, 1596. In 4°, cc. (12). Frontespizio e testo all'interno di un bordo xilografico. Marca editoriale al frontespizio. Cartone moderno, lievi bruniture, ma nel complesso bella copia. RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE dedicata dal traduttore Giacomo Antonio Bianchini a Nicolò Brognonico (Verona, 1 dicembre 1595). Il poema originale latino, "Fluviorum conventus", già pubblicato da Discepolo nel corso dell'anno precedente, si trova sulle ultime 4 carte del volume, dopo la versione italiana. Poco si conosce di Flaminio Valerini, poeta Veronese del quale sono noti numerosi versi occasionali, in prevalenza indirizzati a nobili locali. Probabilmente era in buoni rapporti con diversi signori veneziani come Leonardo Mocenigo e Marino Grimani (cfr S. Maffei, Verona illustrata, Milano, 1825, III / 2, p. 428). Modifica 16, CNCE 33542 (solo 2 copie a Verona); L. e M. Carpanè Menato, Annali della Tipografia Veronese del Cinquecento, (Baden-Baden, 1989), p. 527, n. 611..

BRAHE, TYCHO. - [BRAHE'S ASTRONOMICAL LETTERS IN 1ST ISSUE - PRINTED ON HIS OWN HANDPRESS ON HVEN]
Uraniburg, (Ex Officina Typhographica Authoris - on colophon), 1596. 4to. Nice 19th century half calf with raised bands and gilt title-label to spine. Corners bumped, otherwise very nice. First four leaves with a bit of old ink-spotting, mostly to top of f.2, affecting headline, which is still fully legible. Otherwise an exceptionally nice, clean, and fresh copy with only the lightest of brownstaining to blank upper margin of some leaves. Ff. B(1)&2 with a neatly closed tear, affecting a few words, but to loss. Printed on somewhat primitive paper (made by Brahe himself), of varying quality, which also goes for the print (also printed by Brahe himself), which also varies in clarity and quality. (40), 309 pp. + 1 leaf with Brahe's full-page woodcut printer's device. With many tables and wodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text, two of them full-page, depiting Uranienborg (the plan on slightly larger paper, which is folded at the edge), one 2/3 page being a map of Hven (constituting the third map of Hven, here in the very first printing). The very rare first edition, first issue - printed by Brahe himself on his private press, in few copies only, on paper from his own paper mill - of this milestone of astronomical literature, containing detailed instructions for the construction of astronomical instruments. The work contains many of Brahe's seminal observations for the first time in print and also the highly important map of Hven in the first printing, which cemented Brahe as a pioneer in the technique of cartographic measurement.

Busbeck, Angerius Ghislain v.
Frankfurt, Andree Wechsels Erben, 1596. Äußerst seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des bedeutenden Gesandtschaftsberichts in vier Briefen, gesammelt erstmals 1589 in Paris erschienen. Ogier Ghislain de Busbecq (1522 - 1592) war Diplomat in den Diensten der Habsburger in England wie in Spanien. "Im Herbst des Jahres 1554 schickt Ferdinand I. Busbecq als Botschafter zu Süleyman I. nach Konstantinopel, damit er einen Waffenstillstand mit dem Osmanischen Reich aushandele, um das geschwächte Reich der Habsburger zu entlasten. Busbecq bricht am 23. November 1554 von Wien auf und reist mit seinem Gefolge im Wagen zunächst nach Buda, von dort auf der Donau nach Belgrad, anschließend wieder auf dem Landweg über Nisch, Sofia und Adrianopel nach Konstantinopel. Am 20. Januar 1555 in Konstantinopel angekommen, findet Busbecq den Sultan jedoch nicht in seiner Residenz vor. Er erfährt, dass sich Sultan Suleiman gerade auf Reisen in Kleinasien befindet, so dass er ihm weit in den Osten, in die alte Königsstadt Amasya, nachreisen muss. Nach dreiwöchigem Warten reist Busbecq ihm über Ankara hinterher, um schließlich am 7. April 1555 in Amasya in einer Audienz mit dem Sultan einen sechsmonatigen Waffenstillstand auszuhandeln. Als er den Sultan endlich antrifft, hat dieser augenscheinlich gerade keine Lust auf Friedensgespräche und weist ihn mit den Worten 'Güzel, güzel', 'schön, schön', ab. Zum Trost schenkt er Busbecq ein paar Tulpen- und Hyazinthenzwiebeln, dazu einige Fliederpflänzchen. All dies bringt Busbecq mit nach Hause und führt diese Pflanzen unter Vermittlung seines Freundes Charles d … [Click Below for Full Description]

FREDERIC II (of Hohenstaufen) & ALBERT LE GRAND. - [THE GREATEST WORK ON FALCONRY]
Augsburg, Ioannes Praetorius, 1596. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful red full morocco binding with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Gilt ornamental borders to boards and centrepieces consisting in a gilt crown. All edges of boards gilt and with blind edge-decorations. Corners, hinges, and capitals neatly restored. A small stamp to title-page. Title-page browned and spotted and a - mostly vague - dampstain up until p. 36. A small repaired loss to outer blank margin of one leaf of index, far from affecting print. Otherwise internally very nice, clean and bright. (16), 414 pp. + 1 leaf with printer's device. With the large double-page woodcut illustration depicting the emperor on his throne with the two kneeling falconeers presenting their falcons to the emperor. ¶ Scarce first edition of this seminal classic on hawking and falconry, considered the best and most comprehensive treatise on the subject as well as the first real ornithology text, which has survived to the present day. The work is hailed as "the first zoological treatise written in the critical spirit of modern science" (Review of Casey Wood's new edition of the work, Stanford University Press) and arguably constitutes the greatest ornithological work of the Renaissance, paving the way for modern zoological science.Falconry was probably brought to Europe with the fall of the Roman Empire, when the Huns and Alans arrived from their eastern homelands. Though practiced in antiquity and favored in China and the Near East, falconry reached its zenith under the medieval Arabs, who probably introduced it in Sicily.

The first edition was also printed in Rome, in 1591. Just prior to his death in 1585 the Pope received in audience the young Japanese ambassadors sent to Rome by the Daimyos of Arima, Omura and Otomo.

One of the woodcuts in the present volume depicts the scene of the ambassadors' audience with the Pope, while others show the Jesuit novitiate at Usuki, the college at Funai and the seminaries at Arima and Azuchi.

LINSCHOTEN, Jan Huyghen van
Amsterdam: Jan Huygen van Linschoten. Map. Copperplate engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 15.25 x 21.5" This spectacular circa 1596 map of South America by Jan Huygen van Linschoten depicts the entire continent of South America with north to the right. The map includes Florida and the Caribbean. This early and important map is one of the most ornate maps of the continent ever made. Based on the work of Petrus Plancius, who inturn used Iberean sources for the coastlines, this map combines two of Plancius' maps, with exceptional detail. Although the coastlines, expecially along the Atlantic coast, show a striking departure from reality and the continent itself is bulging on the sides, several place names are included as are capes, bays, and settlements. The interiors, relatively unexplored at the time, note fictitious mountains and rivers. Several interesting vignettes throughout depicts cannibals in Brazil, Patagonian Giants and strange animals including one creature with a human face on a lion's body, with a stripped tail. Sea monsters and ships are also included in the ocean. Cartographically the map shows several speculations representing the limited knowledge of the region at the time. Terro del Fueggo, first reached by Magellan, is here shown to be part of the large speculated continent of Terra Australis that extends westward. Two elaborately ornate cartouches in the top left and bottom right include the Latin title and a Dutch description of the map. The engraver Arnold Floris van Langren identifies himself as Author et Sculptor of the map. The text describe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ranuccio, Farnese
Lettera autografo di Ranuccio Farnese - Parma 6/2/1596. In-4°, 4 pp. di cui solo la prima scritta e firmata. Al retro l' indirizzo del ricevente. In buono stato di conservazione. RANUCCIO Farnese, duca di Parma e Piacenza. - Fu il 4 duca di Parma e regnò dal 1592 al 1622. Era nato a Parma il 28 marzo 1569, da Alessandro e Maria di Portogallo. Prima ancora della morte del padre (1592), egli aveva governato il piccolo ducato in qualità di reggente, ma sempre sotto la sorveglianza di Alessandro che, obbligato dalle vicende politiche e militari del tempo a lunghe assenze, inviava di lontano ammonimenti e istruzioni al giovanissimo figlio. Morto il padre, sempre traendo profitto dall'esperienza politica paterna, emanò le costituzioni (1594), che diedero allo stato farnesiano la sua organizzazione definitiva. Amante degli studi, dotò di amplissimi privilegi (1601) l'università parmense, che risorse a nuova vita, anche per la fondazione e protezione del Collegio dei nobili o di Santa Caterina, dato a reggere ai gesuiti, uno dei più grandi collegi universitari d'Italia. Curò l'edilizia, tanto a Parma quanto a Piacenza: suo è l'ampliamento del Palazzo ducale e la costruzione del Teatro Farnese. Pacco 2.
