Oppian aus Syrien widmete sein Lobgedicht der jagd (Cynegetica) dem Kaiser Caracalla (nach 211). Offensichtlich kannte er das Werk seines Namensvettern und wollte wohl eine Ergänzung dazu verfassen.

After taking his degree in Ferrara, he worked at various medical schools and then became professor of anatomy at Ferrara, in 1548, but already in 1549 he was called to the University of Pisa, then the most important university of Italy. In 1551 Falloppio was invited by Cosimo I., Granduct of Toscany, to occupy the chair of anatomy and surgery at the university of Padua. He also held the professorship of botany and was superintendent of the botanical gardens. It has sometimes been asserted that he was jealous of certain of the great discoverers in anatomy and that this is the reason for his frequent criticisms and corrections of their work. However as Heinrich Haeser (an authority in the history of medicine) noted that Falloppio was known for his modesty and deference to his fellow workers and especially to Vesalius. His purpose in suggesting corrections, therefore, was the advance of the science of anatomy. None of his works, except his "Anatomy" (Venice, 1561 ), were published during his lifetime. (Zitat)

With an index of cases, side-notes and cross-references to Brooke, Fitzherbert and other authorities. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the Year Books. As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings in Norman England they are of crucial primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. They also provide a richly detailed portrait of contemporary English life, customs and manners. The origin of the Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintains that they were records of cases made by lawyers for personal use. Though it is not known when the first manuscript volumes were compiled, it is clear that cases can be found to date from the 1270's and the series continues to 1535. Printed editions of the Year Books were first is.

Hauptwerk des spanischen Jesuiten Juan de Maldonado (französisch: Jean Maldonati, 1533-83), gefeiert als Pionier der Exegese. Als Lehrer der Philosophie und Theologie am Pariser Collegium von Clermont brach er mit der scholastischen Tradition und erzielte damit eine sensationelle Popularität unter seiner Hörerschaft. 1576 ließ ihn die Sorbonne aus Paris entfernen. In Bourges verfaßte er seinen Evangelienkommentar und wurde Visitator der französischen Provinz. Nach seinem Tod im Alter von nicht einmal 50 Jahren hinterließ er nur Manuskripte. "Durch seine Bibelkommentare, vor allem sein Hauptwerk über die vier Evangelien, verdient er als einer der Gründer der theologischen Exegese Ansehen" (Bautz, BBKL V, 613ff.).

        Castilla aurifera cum vicinis Provinciis

      A foundation map for Colombian and Panamanian cartography. c.1597. Louvain. A fine example with wide margins, minor toning. 297 mm x 230 mm. Wytfliet?s important and early map of Colombia; it extends from the most western part of Venezuela ?showing the Maracaibo Lake with a wide mouth and identifies several places and rivers- up to Panama ?naming Darien and several places on the mainland Colombia as Bogota, Antioquia, and a couple of islands on the Pacific. On the northern frontier, the Caribbean, just showing a few small islands. It is illustrated with a cartouche on the upper left. Predates the Viceroyalty of Nueva Granada by almost 150 years, and can be regarded as the earliest map ever made to focus on Colombia.The map was published in Wytfliet?s Descriptionis Ptolemaicae Augmentum, an enhancement to Ptolemy´s Geographia, dedicated to the Americas and intended as a systematic description of its parts, it was the first atlas of the Americas.

        Declaration De L&#39;usage Du Graphometre. - Traicte De L&#39;usage Du Trigometre

      Paris: Danfrie, 1597. 8vo., (7 1/8 x 4 6/8 inches). 14 fine copper-engraved plates, including two duplicates, four woodcut illustrations, including two full-page (pale waterstains throughout). 18th-century speckled calf gilt (hinges weak, extremities scuffed). First edition, with the second state of the privilege leaf, with lines 6, 9 and 10 ending "toutes", "pareil", and "sans que". Describing Danfire&#39;s ingenious invention of an instrument used by surveyors to measure angles, which remianed popular with a few modifications well into the 19th-century. A fine metal-worker and engraver, and maker of mathematical instruments in metal and paper, Danfrie also invented the type used to print this book. Of the seven known types created by Danfrie, the ones used here are the second and fourth of his Gothic-cursive Civilite types, a font first created to mimic French script by Robert Granjon. Danfrie&#39;s early Civilite types were used in books printed by him and Richard Breton. Danfrie was appointed "graveur general des monnaies de France" in 1582. Mortimer, Harvard Italian 163; Carter and Vervliet, Civilite Types, 280."

      "Bengodi" [i. e. London, John Windet f. John Wolfe], "21 October 1584" [but: c. 1597]. - 8vo. 3 pts. in 1 vol. (12), 228, (8), 401, (1), 142 pp., final blank f. With woodcut in the text (pt. 3, p. 107). Wants the blanks at the beginning and end of pt. 2. 18th-century calf, covers ruled in gilt; title to prettily gilt spine; leading edges and inner dentelle gilt; marbled endpapers. All edges red. Secont reprint (printed for the original publisher) of the first collected edition of Aretino's famous 'Conversations', printed by John Wolfe in London in 1584. According to Brunet, there are, including the original, four different editions (of which ours is the second) misleadingly bearing the date of 1584 on their titles, all recorded in a very small number and "entre lesquelles, jusqu'ici, il y a eu peu de différence pour le prix" (Brunet). Only through Woodfield's research did a distinction and localisation of the various reprints become possible, but the Nordmann copy with the same imprint as ours is still catalogued as "extrement rare [.] comme les 3 autres" (Bibliothèque érotique Gérard Nordmann. Christie's Paris, 27. IV. 2006, lot 34 [Est. EUR 20,000-30,000], but unsold). - Both the first and second part consist of three 'giornate', whereas the third part bears the title: "Commento di Ser Agretso da Ficarvolo (= Annibale Caro), sopra la prima ficata del Padre Sicco (= F.M. Molza). Con la diceria de nasi". - Collected edition of the Dialogues of Pietro Aretino (1492-1556), famous Italian satirist and protégé of Giovanni de'Medici, whose licentious and burlesque works earned him a great notoriety. All the author's works were put on the Roman Index in 1558. In the Dialogues the three states of the Italian woman - nun, wife, whore - are discussed, "although the work is more a training manual on how to become a prostitute" (H. P. Kraus. Cat. 204, 8). - Corners bumped. Somewhat browned; trimmed rather closely. Corner loss to E6 in pt. 3 (loss of pagination). Old catalogue clipping mounted on flyleaf; engraved armorial bookplate of the Florence canon Giulio del Riccio (d. 1750) on front pastedown. Woodfield 46-47. Enfer 209-211.

        Abruzzo Ulteriore Regione del Regno di Napoli

      Prima, rarissima, versione della carta dell?Abruzzo Ulteriore del Magini, antecedente alla versione successivamente publicata postuma dal figlio Fabio Magini nel L?Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini, stampato per la prima volta a Bologna nel 1620. Tutte le carte dell?atlante vennero alle stampe prima del 1620, nelle loro stesure provvisorie, che successivamente furono corrette ed aggiornate per l?edizione definitiva. Tali prove sono rarissime, talvolta reperibili sul mercato, e presentano differenze sostanziali con quelle poi incluse nell?atlante. La differenza maggiore in questa mappa consiste nella mancanza del cartiglio, che verrà poi inserito in basso a destra. La carta deriva direttamente da quella realizzata da Natale Bonifazi nel 1587, rispetto alla quale presenta però meno informazioni. Per la realizzazione delle lastre il Magini si servì di due dei più famosi intagliatori dell?epoca; il belga Arnorldo Arnoldi e l?inglese Benjamin Wright. Incisione in rame, foglio applicato su antico supporto di collezione, lievi difetti ai margini bianchi in basso, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Almagià pag. 20. Dimensioni: 460x350. . First and very rare version of Magini's map of Abruzzo Ulteriore, previous to the one that his son, Fabio, published as a posthumous work in L?Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini, Bologna, 1620. All the maps of the atlas had been already published before 1620, though in their temporary versions; they were corrected and updated before the final edition. These examples are quite rare, sometimes available on the market, and bear essential differences with those published in the atlas. The main difference about this map is the lack of the cartouche, added later on lower right. The map derives directly from the one realized by Natale Bonifazi in 1587, though here less information are shown. To engrave his plates, Magini called two among the most famous artists of his time: the Belgian engraver Arnorldo Arnoldi and the English Benjamin Wright. Copper engravings, laid on collector's paper, minor imperfections on lower white margins, otherwise in good condition. Bibliografia: Almagià pag. 20. Dimensioni: 460x350. Bologna Bologna

        Calecuty Regnum

      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. Lambert Andreas (attivo tra il 1590 ed il 1598) fu principalmente editore, tuttavia, alcune delle mappe nelle sue pubblicazioni sono a lui stesso attribuite, sebbene in maniera dubitativa. Dal punto di vista cartografico le mappe sono una derivazione delle carte pubblicate ad Anversa da Abraham Ortelius, per la prima volta nel 1570. L?intaglio delle mappe viene attribuito a Frans Hogenberg. La carta che presentiamo è tratta dall?edizione tedesca delle opere di Giovanni Botero, denominata Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, edita nel 1596 da Lambert Andreas, che nello stesso anno pubblica anche l?edizione con testo latino. La grandissima rarità dell'opere della scuola di Colonia, insieme alla scarsità di informazioni su queste mappe ?segrete?, contribuisce al fascino di questa importante carte, caposaldo di ogni collezione cartografica.

"Etching with engraving, without signature. Beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, showing the usual center fold, small spots, otherwise in excellent condition.The map belongs to the so-called atlases published by the Cartographic School of Cologne. For nearly half a century, Cologne was the most important mapmakers center in the XVI century, mainly due to Dutch and Flemish refugees fleeing religious persecution. Among the principal members of the School, include Quad Matthaeus, Johannes Metellus, Giovanni Botero and Frans Hogenberg, who was its founder. The atlases were often published anonymously or using pseudonyms precisely because of some political and religious problems that characterized the era. Jan Matal or Metellus, French-born Louvaine and is active in Cologne, where he took refuge just to escape persecution from the Catholic monarchs and where he died in 1597. He was one of the major cartographers of the time and, together with the Quad and Hogenberg itself as the leader of the Cologne school. Giovanni Botero (1544 - Turin 1617) was a priest, Italian philosopher and writer, author of universal relations, published a treatise on political geography for the first time in Rome in 1591 without cartographic illustrations. The work quickly became very important and studied throughout Europe, beginning almost to the study of demography. Andreas Lambert (active between 1590 and 1598) was primarily a publisher, however, some of the maps in its publications are attributed to himself, albeit in doubt. From the point of view cartographic maps are a derivation of the papers published by Abraham Ortelius in Antwerp, for the first time in 1570. The carving of the maps is attributed to Frans Hogenberg.The present work is taken by the German edition of the works of Giovanni Botero, Theatrum oder Shawspiegel, published in 1596 by Andreas Lambert, that same year also publishes the edition with Latin text. The great rarity of the works of the school of Cologne, together with the paucity of information on these maps ""secret"", contributes to the charm of this important works, the cornerstone of any collection mapping."
