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.
