Giovanni Botero & Jan Matal & Lambert Andreas (c.1544-1617)
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.

Georg BRAUN & Franz HOGENBERG
1596. Due incisioni in un foglio raffigurnati Piazza San Marco e tratta dal dipinto di George Hoefnagle del 1578. Opera tratta dal Civitates Orbis Terrarum' di Braun & Hegenberg, edizione del 1598. La veduta sulla destra, raffigura il Palazzo Ducale durante l'incendio del 1577. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Two engravings on one sheet depicting the Cathedral & St.Mark's Square, Venice and the other shows the fierce fire that engulfed the Doge's Palace in 1577. After Georg Hoefnagel and published in Braun & Hogenberg's 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'. On the left we look across the piazza to the cathedral of San Marco, the Campanile dell'Orologio clock tower (left) and the Campanille bell tower (right). Our eye is thereby guided to the magnificent façade of the San Marco with its five portals; the four of the cathedral's five roof domes visible here are clearly indebted to Byzantine architecture.Above the central portal are the four horses of San Marco, the only surviving quadriga from Antiquity. The quadriga originally stood on the Arch of Nero in Rome but was taken by Constantine to Constantinople, where it was seized ad booty in 1204 and transported to Venice. The right-hand scene shows the view of the Piazetta from the Grand Canal, with the Biblioteca Marciana on the left, the Campanile dell' Orologio in the centre, San Marco to the right and the burning Doge's palace on the far right. The raging fire is convincingly depicted in all its drama, with rescue forces arriving from all sides to tackle the blaze. Troops are waiting o … [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.

Ercilla y Zuñiga, Alonso de
Condemning the cruelty towards the rebellious Araucanian Natives of Chile; a masterpiece poem of the 16th century. 1596. Perpiñan. Sanson Arbus. In 12mo (139 mm x 73 mm). 17 ff. + 323 + 2 ff. + 1 [blank]. Contemporary vellum, ties missing. A fine example of this rare book; only faint foxing spots, entirely genuine example.Third complete edition, comprising the three parts -the first edition, 1569, only contains the first part. The Araucana is set in 37 cantos in octavas, narrating the Spanish conquest of the Araucanian Indians, under the command of Garcia Hurtado de Mendoza (1535 - 1609), Governor of Chile and later Viceroy of Peru. It is one of most reliable sources on the conquest of the region, undisputed in its veracity and accuracy. Ercilla was well aware of the norm demanded to the chroniclers of the Indies: truth in what was seen and lived "adtestatio rei visae". The situation in Chile demanded the expansion south, deep within land of the fierce Araucanos, who needed to be pacified. The recently appointed Viceroy of Peru sent out an expedition to do so -which lasted from 1555 until 1562-, commanded by his own son, Garcia Hurtado de Mendoza; Ercilla first heard of the expedition from Alderete whilst in England, where he was as part of the group accompanying Philip to marry Mary Tudor. Ercilla´s adventurous spirit was awakened and shortly parted for Chile, participating in the young Governor´s campaign against the insurgent Indians from 1557.Ercilla was apparently distressed by the cruelty and brutality employed in the conquest and warfare … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle, con cornice in oro ai piatti, tassello al dorso, tagli in azzurro. Prima edizione in italiano di un grande classico della storia naturale dell'America Latina, che valse al Gesuita Jose de Acosta (1539-1600) l'appellativo di Plinio del Nuovo Mondo. La sua Historia rappresenta la prima descrizione dettagliata della geografia e della cultura dell'America del Sud. Nativo di Medina, andò come missionario in Perù, viaggiando in Messico, Bolivia, Cile; potè scrivere secondo quanto vide e imparò direttamente, lasciandoci una prima sistematizzazione della geografia di quella parte di mondo. E' altresì una imprescindibile fonte per la storia degli Aztechi. I primi quattro libri contengono un trattato sul cielo, sulla meteorologia e la geografia, parlano dei metalli, delle piante e degli animali; i restanti libri sono dedicati agli uomini che abitano il Mondo Nuovo, ossia la storia naturale relativa ai costumi e ai fatti degli Indiani: religione, riti, idolatria e sacrifici, politica e governo, e le profezie del popolo messicano. Parla tra l'altro del tabacco, del metodo per estrarre l'argento dalle miniere, del chili pepper o pepe lungo, dell'uso di coca. Palau 1991; Sabin 124.

Ce recueil d’arrêts du Parlement de Paris, fut publié pour la première fois en latin en 1596 chez Mettayer et Lhullier, sous le titre : Annaei Roberti rerum judicatarum libri IV. Il fut à nouveau traduit en français, en 1622, par J. Tournet. Dans sa dédicace à Achille de Harlay, l’auteur, après avoir loué l’éloquence et la sagesse du premier président du Parlement de Paris, explique sa démarche, à la fois juridique et rhétorique : présenter la langue du Palais, tout en l’embellissant. Par le fait de mettre à la disposition des praticiens les décisions du Parlement de Paris dans 71 affaires récentes (de 1571 à 1595), civiles et criminelles, cet ouvrage forme aussi comme une mise à jour de ceux de Jean De Luc, Jean Papon et Gilles Le Maistre. Cette publication est le fruit de l’expérience d’un avocat ayant fréquenté le palais pendant plusieurs décennies et conservé la mémoire des affaires plaidées (27 cas, soit un tiers environ) ou entendues (44 cas).

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.
