[12], 218, [22]; [42] pp.Sixth edition of a treatise, in form of a dialogue between Carolus Clusius and Theodorus Clutius, (based on their correspondence) on bees, beeswax and apiculture, edited by Clutius for the first time in 1597, followed by editions in 1619, 1627, 1648, 1653 and 1705.Theodorus Clutius (1546-1598) was a pharmacist in Haarlem, later in Delft where he managed a famous pharmacy and where he was William of Orange s court pharmacist. In 1593 he was asked by the Leiden University to lay out, in concert with Prof. Carolus Clusius, the first Hortus botanicus (Cruyt-tuin) in the Netherlands.

DELIGHTFUL 16TH CENTURY WORLD MAP?Universi Orbis Descriptio?, copper engraving made by Girolamo Porro for the Giovanni Magini?s ?Geographiae Universaetum Tum Veteris Tum Novae? published in Cologne by Peter Keschedt, 1597. Coloured by a later hand. Size (plate): 13 x 17 cm. (Frame: 31,5 x 34,5 cm)Girolamo Porro took Arbraham Ortelius? popular oval projection and reduced it to octavo size for Magini?s Geographiae. There is some loss of detail, but the information is very clearly presented. The world is surrounded by six winds, and the geography of the map is quite up-to-date.The great, hypothetical southern continent is shown along the bottom of the map, and the equally mythical islands around the north pole are also indicated.Porro shows a northwest and a northeast passage, both ending in a ?strait of Anian? separating North America from Asia.A delightful example of the current understanding of the world at the end of the sixteenth century. Two misspellings on this map differentiate it from the 1596 Venice edition. In the upper left top and bottoms of the map area is ?Terra Icognita? instead of ?Incognita? and ?Circulus Anterticus? instead of ?Antarcticus? as in the earlier version. The probability is that this represents a newly engraved plate.Price: Euro 595,- (incl. frame)?Literature: Shirley 203.

Gerard, John (1545-1612)
London: by [Edm. Bollifant for [Bonham Norton and] Iohn Norton, 1597. FIRST EDITION. Folio: A fine, complete copy in early 20th c. green morocco, gilt, by Riviere. First and last leaves gently washed, slight wear to engraved t.p., occ. light stains, very short wormtrail in outer margin of two signatures, occ. touching the text. Illustrated throughout with woodcuts of plants and an engraved portrait of the author. The title page is engraved and signed "Will[ia]ms Rogers inuen. et sculp." The rare first (only 16th c.) edition of the most famous of the early English herbals. It differs greatly from the subsequent editions (of 1633 and 1636), which were heavily altered by Thomas Johnson. The more than 1,800 woodcuts have a distinguished history. They were obtained from the publishers of in J. T. Tabernaemontanus' "Icones Plantarum" (1590) and many were copied from earlier woodcuts in the works of Dodoens, Mattioli, Fuchs, and other earlier herbalists.John Gerard is to this day one of the best known of English herbalists. In 1586 the Royal College of Physicians established a garden of physic and appointed Gerard its curator. Gerard also supervised the gardens of William Cecil, Lord Burghley, and mentions Burghley's garden frequently in his herbal. The genesis of this herbal was complex. At its core is the physician Robert Priest's translation of Dodoens' collected botanical works, the "Stirpium Historiae Pemptades Sex" (1583). Priest died before finishing the work and the task of completing the herbal fell to Gerard, who grafted onto Priest's work the catalogue of his own garde … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apologie ... sur La cabale des Reformez.[Lyon?, Jacques Roussin?], 1598. 2 works in 1 volume. 8vo. 17th-century gold-tooled calf; rebacked, preserving most of the backstrip. 224; 141, [1 blank] pp. First edition of an incendiary satirical pamphlet ("farce Rabelaisienne" - Pioffet) and one of the earliest editions of the author's defence of it, both attacking the Huguenot ministers of the Languedoc, three years after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes. Of special interest are some parts are written in Languedoc patois. La cabale raised a storm of protests, especially because it attacked the Huguenot ministers very personally under their full names. The present Apologie, responds to their threats and continues the attacks.Guillaume Reboul (1564-1611), a notorious French pamphleteer, came from a Huguenot family, converted to Catholicism, and was excommunicated almost immediately. As secretary to the Duke of Bouillon he cheated the Duke out of a large amount of money and fled to the Pope's Court at Avignon, where his ban was lifted. He then went to Rome where he became the protégé of Cardinal Baronius. He wrote several violent satirical pamphlets against the French Huguenots before and after the present La cabale and Apologie. When he also wrote a violent satire against the Pope (apparently never printed) he went too far and was sentenced to death and executed in his priso … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOSQUIER (Philippe)
(1597) Héricourt et Caron, Recherches sur les livres imprimés à Arras, pp. 44, 46 & 47. Seconde édition du Fouet de l'Académie (la première parut d'abord à Mons en 1596), et édition originale très rare de La Servitude, imprimées toutes deux à Arras par Guillaume de La Rivière. Le deuxième titre forme pour ainsi dire la suite et le complément du premier. Philippe Bosquier (1562-1636), natif de Mons, était religieux récollet ; il s'était acquis la réputation d'un bon prédicateur. Ces deux ouvrages sont des recueils de sermons ; Bosquier y fait preuve d'une grande érudition, mais utilise en parallèle de nombreuses expressions grossières. On trouve notamment dans le second ouvrage tout un ensemble d'arguments sur le porc, le monstre des animaux. Bosquier balance son porc, en quelque sorte. Vignette gravée sur bois sur le titre et jolie gravure sur cuivre au verso de celui-ci dans le premier volume. Exemplaire d'Arthur de La Borderie (1827-1901), historien et membre fondateur de la Société Archéologique et Historique d'Ille et Vilaine, avec son ex-libris portant la devise "Qui l'aborde rie". "Il a mis en œuvre pour faire rire ses auditeurs, le comique le plus bas, le plus burlesque et le plus grossier" (Journal de Verdun, avril 1753, p. 253). Si la page de titre de La Servitude indique la date de 1600, le dernier feuillet comporte un achevé d'imprimer, à Arras, daté du 1er octobre. Exemplaire rogné un peu court en tête, mais en bonne condition par ailleurs. [Attributes: First Edition]

Gianutio throws light on the laws of chess then in use, describing the different forms of both the king's leap and free castling. While soon superseded by the more extensive treatises of Salvio and Carrera, it is nevertheless highly significant as the first chess book produced by the late 16th-century Italian school” - Chicco / Sanvito “Lineamenti di una bibl. italiana degli scacchi” (A.M.I.S. 1987), n. 404 - Brunet,III,1374.

Francofurti: haeredes Andreae Wecheli, Claudium Marnium, et Joannem Aubrium, 1597. 1597 Aristotle ORGANON Greek LOGIC Philosophy Metaphysics Syllogism Wechel "From sense, therefore, as we say, memory is produced, but from repeated remembrance of the same thing, we get experience, for many remembrances in number constitute one experience"- Aristotle, Organon, Posterior AnalyticsA rare, late 16th-century Wechel printing of Aristotle's Organon. This book is the standard collection of the six works on logic by Aristotle - the treatises include "Interpretation," "Analytics," "Topics," "Refutations," and "Categories." Aristotle's lectures and essays on logic were rooted in metaphysics, but he chose to take a scientific approach to most of these works, rather than relying on judgment and opinion. The most famous contribution is the syllogism, or application of deductive reasoning arriving at conclusion. These works on logic were used throughout the middle ages as teaching tools, many of which helped lay the groundwork for modern mathematical logic. The Wechel printing house is known for publishing Greek classics, such as Aristotle and Homer's Iliad and Odyssey.Edited by Giulio Pace, this important edition became the standard edition of 'Organon' throughout the 17th-century.

1597. Woodcut of Virgin and child on verso of title. 12mo (130 x 80mm.) [24], 203, [1]p. Contemporary vellum ,titled in ink on spine, paper label at foot (lightly soiled, ties missing). The great Benedictine abbey of Einsiedeln abbey dedicated to Our Lady of the Hermits (a reference to St Meinrad the earliest inhabitant) is in Switzerland. Its abbot at the end of the sixteenth century, to whom this book is dedicated, was Ulrich Wyttwyler (1535-1600), who became abbot in 1585 after the disastrous fire of 1577 (which destroyed the library) necessitated the rebuilding of the abbey for which he largely paid. He was the author of a life of St. Meinrad (Friburg, 1587), and it is he who was responsible for the beautiful Benefactors' Book which starts in 1588. In the dedication to this book of Marian devotion, the editor Jodocus Lorich (1540-1612) speaks of the text being discovered there 'unknown and amongst other more obscure books' (elsewhere he calls it 'thesaurus insperato inventus'). He also states that there was a German version of the text made by Abbot Ulrich intended for publication along with a corrected text of the Latin aimed at those who 'prefer latin, or can read it more correctly than German'. This must be a reference to a book from the same press in the same year 1597, Peregrinatio:das ist: Bilgerfahrt der hochseligsten Jungfrawen und Mutter Gottes Mariae: ein uralts Büchlin von derselben und irs geliebten Sons auss dem latein durch Ulrichen Abbte. trewlich verteutschet, also edited by Lorichius.

JODELLE, Étienne
Benoist Rigaud, Lyon, 1597. Plein maroquin brun du dix-neuvième siècle, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré portant le titre doré, tranches dorées, gardes en papier marbré. Un volume in-12 (132x79 mm), (12)-298 feuillets Plat supérieur passé . Ultime édition collective, la troisième, contenant les Amours, Epithalame, Contr'Amours, Sonnets, Odes, suivis des trois tragédies, composées de longs monologues et de choeurs, dont la célèbre Cléopâtre captive, et Discours de Jules César avant le passage du Rubicon. On trouve enfin une longue Ode à la chasse adressée au roi Charles IX et les Vers funèbres sur la mort d'Estienne Jodelle composés par Agrippa d'Aubigné. Jodelle est recherché par les amateurs de théâtre et par les curieux de littérature cynégétique. Il est l'auteur de la première tragédie classique française, Cléopâtre, qui parut en 1552 et qui décida de la renaissance du théâtre en France. Cette tragédie montre combien les règles dramatiques étaient encore lâches à cette époque : elle est bien divisée en actes, mais le premier ne présente que des rimes féminines; les trois actes suivants sont écrits en vers de dix syllabes à rimes croisées et le cinquième est en alexandrins. Exemplaire finement relié par Duru (1850) Tchemerzine [p. 761 : "Édition aussi rare et aussi recherchée que les précédentes"] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Nineteenth-century full brown moro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philippe Thomassin (Troyes 1562 - Roma 1622)
1597. Bulino misure: mm 477 x 314 Incisore francese stabilitosi a Roma nel 1585. Abbiamo scarse notizie riguardanti la sua vita, ma sappiamo che è stato il primo maestro di Jacques Callot il quale ha imparato la professione di incisore nel laboratorio di Thomassin al suo arrivo a Roma nel 1609, all'età di 17 anni. Nel 1588 insieme al cognato, il pittore Jean Turpin, crea una società: egli realizzava incisioni (soprattutto soggetti religiosi da Barocci, Antonio Tempesta e Francesco Vanni) e Turpin si occupava della loro edizione e commercializzazione. Il loro sodalizio si concluse nel 1602 in seguito alla morte della moglie di Thomassin sorella della moglie di Turpin. L'autore perciò lasciò a Turpin circa duecentoquaranta lastre sulle quali Turpin si premurò di cancellare in nome di Thomassin, come nel caso del nostro foglio. Stampa raffigurante S. Caterina da Siena tra le rocce che tiene il Cristo Bambino tra le braccia e il giglio, mentre la Vergine li guarda con il Battista che le dorme accanto. Si vedono sulle mani della Santa le stigmate e in primo piano a sinistra Papa Gregorio XI tiene in mano un libro di preghiere. Soggetto tratto da un dipinto di Francesco Vanni. Impressione eccellente, toni nitidi e neri decisi. Con grande abilità dell'uso del bulino i contrasti chiaroscurali creano profondità al foglio e stagliano le figure dal paesaggio arboreo dello sfondo. Foglio rifilato alla battuta del rame. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Nel margine inferiore dedica dell'incisore al cardinale Ascanio Colonna in dodici righe di versi latini firmati da "Carm. Simonis Veronii' … [Click Below for Full Description]
