        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. Bibliografia: Meurer, Atlantes Colonienses Die Kolner Schule der Atlas Kartographie 1570-1610, pp. 74/78, BOT 2; Ginsberg, Printed Maps of Scandinavia and the Arctic, pp.150/153, 35 & 36; Suarez, Early Mapping of Southeast Asia, pp. 186/7, 104; Burden, The Mapping of North America, p. 115, 90; Shirley, Early Printed Maps of the British Isles, p. 83, 189; Borri, L?Italia nelle antiche Carte, p. 95, 106; Walter, Japan a Cartographic Vision, 20; Tibbets, Arabia in Early Maps, p. 57, 50. "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."

Rarissima "prima edizione" di questa ?guida? dedicata agli esorcismi, soprattutto volta a curare vittime della stregoneria. Per assicurarsi un rito efficace lo Stampa si basava sulle preghiere e sulle sacre scritture piuttosto che ricorrere a intrugli di erbe e ad elaborate procedure come era tipico dell?epoca. Le ?guide? per gli esorcismi furono in gran voga verso la fine del XVI e nel XVII secolo; inizialmente la chiesa cattolica favorì la loro pubblicazione ma la grande diffusione finì per portare a veri e propri abusi: gli esorcismi non autorizzati, effettuati sia da ciarlatani che da preti radicali, erano fiorenti all?epoca della pubblicazione di "Fuga Satanae". Pietro Antonio Stampa, sacerdote che visse e lavorò in Lombardia, a Chiavenna, strutturò la sua ?guida? in modo da attrarre sia i laici che il clero, traendo ispirazione dalle sue preghiere. Cfr. Adams,II, p. 229 - manca alla British Library e al Brunet. Corto del marg. sup., con qualche alone ma certamente un buon esemplare.

        Virginiae Item et Floridae

      Henricus Hondius (1597-1651)Virginiae Item et FloridaeAmsterdam: 1647Hand-colored copperplate engraving28 ½" x 32 ¼" framed Virginiae Item et Floridae by Henricus Hondius was published in Amsterdam in 1647. This map is a beautifully detailed, hand-colored copperplate engraving of Virginia and Florida with accompanying Latin text. The map and its’ publisher Henricus Hondius both have wonderful histories. Hondius, the younger son of famed map publisher Jodocus Hondius, was born in 1597. Like his father, Henricus was a cartographer and engraver. Jodocus’s great contributions to world of cartography included publishing an updated Meractor’s Atlas, working with John Speed and others. Henricus, following his father’s death in 1612, established his own branch of the family business in 1621. He published an edition of Mercator’s-Hondius Atlas in 1641. Virginiae Item et Floridae was added to the 1647 addition of the Atlas. This map is a derivative from a series of other maps that had been elaborated on over time. Hondius’s information was received via the early maps of John Smith, an early colonist who sailed from England to Jamestown, Virginia in 1607. Given instructions to find gold, silver, and the quickest route to the Pacific, the only task Smith accomplished was to create a detailed, geographical cartography of the Chesapeake Bay Area. Smith’s interaction with the Native American tribes, particularly the Powhatan and the Susquehanna, meant that he could include the indigenous names for rivers, inlets and places on his map. Smith published early versions of the map in 1606, but it wasn’t until 1612 that his pamphlet, A Map of Virginia With a Description of the Contrey, reached a wide audience outside of England. Smith’s map continued to remain the most influential for other cartographers until the end of the seventeenth century.Hondius’s map is a copy cut from his brother, Jodocus, and cartographer William Blaeu’s plates from 1629. The cartography of Florida is derived from the work of Jacques Le Moyne. Hondius’s map is the fifth derivative from Smith’s. His attention to detail is excellent. The large, cartouche not only clear states what the map is depicting but also has two arms that show early indigenous settlements. The settlement on the left is in Florida and the one on the right is in Virginia. The content of map is rather sparse for inland areas, but the coastal areas are clearly labeled. A few rivers reach inland. The mountains are clearly illustrated. Other such embellishments include two deer and a lovely turkey. From Virginia, the land extends into Florida (Note that the coastline of the states of South and North Carolina and Georgia are greatly shortened.) where areas are labeled and outlined in pink and green. The sea is depicted in light blue, and where a few ships sail so do several sea creatures. The lower corner of this map includes a smaller cartouche labeling coordinates and a compass with rhumb lines. The only figures on the map are depictions of Native Americans; four are at sea in canoes, while two larger figures grace the top of Florida. Dressed in traditional costume, they stand on top an elaborate Latin inscription. Not all the place names are written in Latin, some retain their original Native American spelling. Since this map is derived from a compilation of sources not all the information is correct. Next to the two standing figures is a large lake that flows to the Atlantic and is labeled R de May. While the River May is clearly depicted and is topographically accurate it does not flow from or into a great lake. Hondius’s map is a wonderful assimilation of various aspects of cartographic history making it a delightful addition to one’s collection. Similar versions and copies grace the collections of the New York Public Library, Yale, John Carter Brown, Duke and Harvard University.

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.
