Busbeck, Angerius Ghislain v.
Frankfurt, Andree Wechsels Erben, 1596.. . Äußerst seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des bedeutenden Gesandtschaftsberichtes 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 Charl … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRANDS-JOURS DE LYON (1596)
Lyon: Thibaud Ancelin, 1596. FIRST EDITION. 8vo., 3 parts in 1 volume. I: 1 f. (tear through title-page), 6 pp. II: pp. 3-7. III: 5 pp. including separate title-page. Old blue wrappers, preserved in fitted cloth case (Cloverleaf Studios) SAMMELBAND OF THREE RARE 16TH-CENTURY "ARRETS" FROM THE "GRANDS-JOURS DE LYON" ISSUED IN THE YEAR OF ITS CREATION (1596). * "The Grands-Jours were assizes or extraordinary sessions, which the parliaments and other superior courts held, from time to time, in some city within their jurisdiction, at a distance from their ordinary place of sitting, to hear the complaints which the inhabitants of the province might make against the judges and other judicial officers who had jurisdiction there; and to procure, by their presence, expedition in the dispatch of affairs, and particularly of criminal causes, &c. The rare occurrence and solemnity of these assizes, together with the importance of the causes tried therein, and the rank of the persons by whom they were held, probably gave rise to the appellation of Grands-Jours. [...] Charles le Bel caused some Grands-Jours to be held at Paris, to inquire into the conduct of certain individuals accused of malversation; they were capitally punished. The Grands-Jours, which were held after that time in other cities, were established by letters-patent and commission of the king, to decide, in the last resort, on criminal causes, and civil causes to a certain amount, in the provinces, bailiwicks, seneschalsies and 'pays' named in the king's letters, and only during the time appointed by the same. It was par … [Click Below for Full Description]

[HOTELS, CABARETS, and TAVERNS]. France, Laws & Edicts (9 Jan. 1596 - Follambray)
S.l. (Paris): s.n., 1596. ONLY EDITION. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. 12mo. COLLATION: A4 + [B]2 = 6 ff., COMPLETE. Paginated [1], 2-11, [1] pp. (final blank).With large woodcut culs-de-lamp on A1. UNBOUND as issued, with the edges untrimmed. Final two pages with discoloration along early fold, affecting three lines of text with loss of a few letters. Preserved in a fitted cloth case by Cloverleaf Studio No other copy seems to be recorded. * Extremely early Royal edicts and regulations for Cabarets, Taverns, and Hotels, with special consideration given to issues of taxation. Herein are precise tax figures and detailed methods of payment (including penalties for non-payment) toward taxes on food and wine. Of particular interest: the capacity of Judges to rule on various crimes committed by the proprietors of said businesses, as well as the functions of the "Huissiers" and "Sergents" (two of the least-important officeholders appointed by the King). * Our pamphlet must be closely related to the unique Royal Act (Folembray: January 17, 1596) Edict, held by the Bibliotheque Nationale de France, namely the "Lettres de jussion rendues pour l'execution du reglement donne sur le fait des hôtelleries, cabarets et tavernes et pour le recouvrement de la finance de ceux qui n'ont pas paye leurs taxes ou qui ont refuse de le faire" (S.l., n.d.) -- the BnF example is paginated "17-23 pp." (sic) and therefore must have been extracted from a larger work, whereas ours is obviously a singular publishing effort. * In outstanding original condition.

SIRIGATTI, Lorenzo
1596. SIRIGATTI, Lorenzo. La pratica di prospettiva. Comprised of engraved title-page, 3 ff. text, 65 engraved plates (including the engraved half-title for the Libro Secondo), plus a woodcut printer's device at the end of the Libro Primo. Text on the verso of all plates in the first book with exception of plates 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 34, and 43, no text in the second book. Folio, 403 x 265 mm, bound in English eighteenth-century calf, red morocco spine label stamped in gilt. Venice: Girolamo Franceschi, 1596. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, dedicated to Ferdinando de' Medici by Sirigatti on 20 July 1596. La pratica di prospettiva is considered by many to be one of the most elegant works on perspective, and places Lorenzo Sirigatti among the important writers of his time on the subject: Barbaro, Vignola, and Egnatio Danti. "Questa è la più elegante delle edizioni di libri prospettici pei tipi, pei caratteri, per la carta" (Cicognara). The work is at once attractive and instructive. Libro Primo begins with twelve plates discussing the basics, depicting simple geometrical forms and their perspectival projections. This is followed by a series of 31 increasingly more complicated projections of stairs, facades, theater floor plans, column designs, portals, a lute, and a violin. The Millard catalogue draws specific attention to Sirigatti's contribution to stage design in the first book, noting that "he is the first to mention that the full effect of the perspective frame, for instance in a stage set, can be enjoyed only by those sitting along the main axis." This is demonstrated on … [Click Below for Full Description]

RUFO, Juan
Toledo, Pero Rodríguez 1596 - 8º menor (14,5 x 9,5 cm) 8 h. h. inc. port. con escudo real en madera, 270 fols. Pergamino del siglo XVII, rotulación posterior en lomo; estuche en holandesa, lomo en piel con adornos dorados. Edición príncipe de la obra más afamada del poeta crodobés y que supone una de las primeras muestras del género epigramático o paremiológico en la literatura española. Recoge 707 sentencias y máximas morales. Muestran la amplia experiencia vital de Rufo y se presentan en un estilo discreto dichos, aforismos, breves y brillantes reflexiones, en las que, además de la sagacidad y sensibilidad de su autor, se encierra la vida cotidiana de una época. La disposición de las máximas es la de breves anécdotas selladas con un dicho agudo. Como tantas otras obras de la literatura de los Siglos de Oro, constituye un breviario y boceto de las costumbres y usos de la época y revelan ingenio y donaire en el autor. Fue cronista de Juan de Austria, al que acompañó en la campaña de Granada contra los moriscos sublevados en 1568, y con quien compartió galera en la batalla de Lepanto. Su obra fue elogiada por Cervantes en el escrutinio de la biblioteca de Don Quijote. Es obra rara, de la que el CCPB sólo recoge cinco ejemplares en bibliotecas españolas. Salvá: “Los poquísimos ejemplares que se conocen de esta obra suelen estar faltos de la hojita de los preliminares.” Pérez Pastor, 421; Palau, 281192; Salvá, 2152. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

ERCILLA Y ÇUÑIGA, Alonso de
Perpiñán, Sanson Arbus 1596 - 12º (13,9 x 7,3 cm) 17 h. inc. port., 323 fols., y 2 h. Pergamino de época. Tercera edición completa, con las tres partes. En treinta y siete cantos, en octavas reales, se narra la conquista española de las tierras araucanas dentro del territorio que hoy ocupa Chile. La empresa abarcó los gobiernos de Pedro de Valdivia y García Hurtado de Mendoza, a quien el propio Alonso de Ercilla acompañó hasta territorio chileno, en 1557. El autor tuvo presente la norma reconocida por los cronistas de las historias verdaderas de Indias, que exigía adtestatio rei visae, la verdad de lo visto y lo vivido. En 1569, en el taller madrileño de Pierres Cossin, fue impresa por primera vez la primera parte de La Araucana. La distancia espacial y temporal con respecto a los hechos en ella narrados, le había permitido a Alonso de Ercilla reelaborar el material acopiado en el escenario americano hasta dotarlo de la forma poética y el propósito último pretendidos. El éxito de la publicación no se vio defraudado por el que obtuvieron la segunda parte, en 1578, reimpresa ese mismo año, y la tercera, ya en 1589. En 1590, en Madrid, por Pedro Madrigal, se publican la tres partes juntas. Del inmediato éxito editorial dan cuenta las cifras: se contabilizan dieciocho ediciones de La Araucana hasta 1632. Perfecto ejemplar, en su estado original. Palau, 80420; Salvá, 581 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Rainolds (John)
Joseph Barnes, 1596. lacking initial blank, faint browning around edges of last few leaves at either end pp. xiv, 646, square 8vo, recent half calf, original red stain to edges, good. 'Partly in order to continue channelling his proven disputatious skills against the Catholic church, Walsingham resolved in 1586 to endow at Oxford a special lectureship in controversial theology earmarked for Rainolds - who had in the meantime been licensed for the degree of DTh on 14 June 1585 - and convocation readily acquiesced. Walsingham promised to pay Rainolds £20 per annum and the latter, weary of the continued dissensions at Corpus, availed himself of the opportunity and resigned his fellowship in 1588, moving to Queen's College, where the provost, Henry Robinson, arranged room and board for him. Rainolds reciprocated by taking an active part in teaching at Queen's. 'Rainolds lectured three times a week during term, drawing consistently large audiences: 'never were any lectures in our memory so frequented as these in that university', wrote Daniel Featley, 'nor any in Cambridge, save those of Dr. [William] Whitaker' (Abel redivivus, 2.226). The lectures specifically targeted the Jesuit Robert Bellarmine, then a professor of theology at the Gregorian University in Rome. Walsingham instructed his agents at Rome to send him transcripts of the lectures that Bellarmine delivered there and, upon arrival, they were forwarded to Rainolds for immediate public rebuttal. Of particular interest to Rainolds was the refutation of Bellarmine's attempt to make the Apocryphal books an integral part o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bodeman, Das illustrierte Fabelbuch, 75.1; Fabula Docet 68; Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries F143; for Hagen: Thieme-Becker XV, p. 461; Wurzbach II, p. 632; not in Checklist Aesopic fables Pierpont Morgan Library; Hobbs, Fables; The fox and the grapes. First illustrated Phaedrus edition in the Netherlands, in the original Latin, richly and beautifully illustrated with 103 engravings. It is also the first edition edited by Laurentius. It contains the text of 92 Phaedrus fables with extensive annotations (the first edition of 1596 had only 64 fables). The fables are followed by an "index vocabularum" and an "index rerum & verborum". The preliminaries include several laudatory poems and a letter by Conrad von Rittershausen, who was the first to provide the Phaedrus fables with scholarly commentary, especially those of use for lawyers, published at Leiden in 1598. In the 17th century, especially in the Netherlands, these learned editions were very popular, offering an increasingly growing apparatus of word explanations, variants of texts, corrections of texts and personal comments. With the 1890(?) bookplate of Dr. Felix Durosier on pastedown. With the frontispiece very slightly shaved at the fore-edge, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding with some slight wear and a small crack in the front joint.

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.
