        Vita d'Antonio Giacomini Tebalducci Malaspini.

      ne le case de Sermartelli, 1597. In-4° (cm. 22), legatura settecentesca in cartonato alla rustica con titolo ms. al dorso; pp. [8] 77 [7] in buono stato e ad ampi margini; nota ms. al contropiatto del bibliografo cruscante Luigi Razzolini (XIX secolo), Ex libris al verso del frontespizio del più celebre Apostolo Zeno (XVIII secolo); fioriture sparse. Edizione originale molto rara del racconto della «bellissima vita» [Gamba 1533] del condottiero e politico fiorentino quattrocentesco detto Giacomino. Un mezzo eroe che iniziò come bancario in fuga per una grossa somma non contabilizzata; che fallì in un'impresa mercantile in Napoli; finalmente che fece carriera nel management militare del nuovo regime repubblicano di Firenze (1494), con brillanti intuizioni in merito all'inefficienza del sistema d'ingaggio dei capitani di ventura, al rivoluzionario utilizzo operativo delle milizie rurali, al geniale tentativo di deviare il corso dell'Arno per privare i pisani di acqua e transito. «Esemplare bellissimo appartenuto ad Apostolo Zeno» [Razzolini, nota ms.]. In stato molto buono e d'illustre provenienza.

        Hispania Nova

      Louvain 1597 - Magnifica carta geografica, tratta dall'opera Descriptionis Ptolemaicae Augmentum (Louvain, 1597), il primo atlante dedicato esclusivamente al Nuovo Mondo, e anche l'unico lavoro che si conosca di Cornelis Wytfliet. L'atlante fu così intitolato proprio perché era inteso come complemento della Geografia di Tolomeo che, naturalmente, non poteva comprendeva regioni che sarebbero state scoperte solo diversi secoli dopo. L'atlante di Wytfliet comprendeva 19 mappe: una mappa del mondo e 18 carte regionali, che costituiscono le prime, o tra le prime, mappe realizzate di specifiche aree del Nord e del Sud America. Le mappe sono accompagnate da testo, in cui vengono fornite nozioni di geografia, storia, etnografia, nonché una storia dell'esplorazioni e dei viaggi di C. Columbo (1492-1502), John Cabot (1497-98), Sebastian Cabot (1526-28), Francisco Pizarro (1527-35) ecc. L'opera fu pubblicata in diverse edizioni, l'ultima delle quali a Arnhem, dove, nel 1615, Jan Janssonius curò la versione col il testo in francese. Questa è una delle prime mappe del sud-ovest americano e del Messico, compresa la parte meridionale dell' attuale Texas, qui chiamata floridae Pars, con il Rio Grande, indicato come R. de Palmas. Incisione in rame, alcuni restauri lungo la piega centrale, nel complesso in buone condizioni. An excellent early copperplate engraving from Wyfliet's Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum, which was the first atlas to exclusively feature the Americas. "The only known geographic work by Wytfliet, Descriptiones Ptolemaicae Augmentum.can be described as the first separately published atlas devoted solely to the Americas. As a compiler instead of creator, his production has remained all the more valuable as an excellent summary of everything then known in the Spanish Netherlands concerning the New World. The maps in Wytfliet's Augmentum have been said to play the same part in the history of cartography of the New World as Ptolemy's maps do for the old, and they give us a valuable summary of the early cartography of America" (Martin & Martin, p. 75). Burden 105: "Published in the first atlas of America.this map concentrated on the Spanish area of influence in present-day Mexico. Like a lot of his maps, [Wytfliet's Hispania Nova] draws from Plancius' world map of 1592 amongst others. The area covered takes in all of present-day southern Texas up to the latitude of 30º north. No other states of the map are known and all issues are without text on the back." Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici (Wytfliet 1A), III, p. 219. Nordenskiöld 307. Wagner, Cartography of the Northwest Coast 190. Texas was then little known, and that is reflected in the paucity of information on this map, where the borderlands region is labeled Floridæ Pars and Medanos de la Magdalena. The rivers in the Texas borderlands are Rio de las Palmas, a large, unnamed river (perhaps the Rio Grande), Rio Bravo, and Rio del Oro. Wytfliet's atlas with nineteen maps relating to America was republished in 1598, 1603, 1605, 1607, 1611, and 1615, with no changes to the present map.Ornate title cartouche in the ocean area. Copperplate, some reapairs at central fold, generally in very good conditions. Burden, The Mapping of North America, 105 Dimensioni 290 230mm

With a folding table in vol. 8. 20th century vellum.

      Elliott, Maritime history... in the John Carter Brown Library (rev. ed.) 1093. Complete set of a compilation of all resolutions, ordinances, treaties and other statements and motions by the States General of the Dutch Republic, regarding all maritime matters. The collection starts in 1597 with the establishment of the five admiralties in the Dutch Republic and ends in 1771, although a few resolutions from the period of Habsburg rule (the oldest from 1487) have been included. Most of the resolutions concern trade, including the trade with the Baltic, East and West Indies, North Africa and the Turkish Empire, but also fishery, the equipage of battleships and the administration of the colonies in the West Indies, including slavery. Several tables give interesting information regarding the costs of the building and outfitting of ships and the formation of regiments for the colonies. One very large table presents the tariffs for all sorts of products, including numerous types of wood, glass, porcelain, fish and furs.A collection of resolutions had been previously published in two volumes in 1689 and 1694. In 1701 an expanded volume 2, present in the current collection, was published, with volume 3 following in 1721. Interestingly, a new and much expanded volume 1 was published in 1730. The present set, published during a course of over 70 years, includes these expanded editions of volumes 1 and 2. All indexes have been bound in the corresponding volume, instead of in a separate index volume.With the bookplates of the bibliophile Jan Willem Six de Vromade (1874-1936) and others. The binding somewhat smudged. Somewhat browned and stained throughout, most notably vol. 8, and with a small tear in the front fly leaf of vol. 6. A very good set of an important source for Dutch maritime history.

        État présent des Indes Hollandaises, contenant une peinture varie et fidelle du gouvernement."Batavia" [= Amsterdam?], [ca. 1780]. 8vo. With decorations built up from rococo fleurons. Contemporary wrappers.

      Cat. NHSM, p. 507; Landwehr & V.d. Krogt, VOC 1597; STCN (5 copies); cf. Smith Diehl, pp. 151-52. French translation of this thorough report and opinions on the present state of the Dutch settlements in the East Indies, containing accounts of their government, administration, navigation, declining trade, military, and possessions. The original Dutch edition (Nederlandsch India, in haaren tegenwoordigen toestand beschouwd) appeared most likely in the same year. Landwehr & Van der Krogt suggest that the two were published simultaneously and may have been printed in Amsterdam. An English translation was published in 1780 by G. Robinson in London.Wrappers soiled. Very good copy of this report on the present state of the Dutch East Indies.

        The garden of health: containing the sundry rare and hidden vertues and properties of all kindes of simples and plants. Together with the manner how they are to bee used and applyed in medicine for the health of mans body, against divers diseases and infirmities most common amongst men. . The second edition corrected and emended.London, Thomas Harper, 1633. 4to. Sprinkled calf (ca. 1800?), gold-tooled spine with the (ca. 1835?) WHM monogram of William Henry Miller.

      - Alden & Landis 633/67; Hunt 224; Krivatsy 6665. Second edition of an English encyclopaedia of practical medical botany for household use as well as for doctors and apothecaries, discussing about 420 plants, first published in 1597. It describes the plant's parts and their uses, the preparation of medicines from the plant and their use in treating various ailments, and includes some American plants that had only recently reached Europe when Langham wrote. The books emphasis on common plants that "are gotten without any great cost or labour", suggests it is intended for household use and for those who cared for the poor, but it also gives instructions for distillation and other processes that an amateur would be less likely to attempt than an apothecary. While the title must have been influenced by the 1485 Gart der Gesundheit or 1491 [H]ortus sanitatis, the text is quite independent. With worm trails slightly affecting the text in about 15 leaves, damage to the lower outside corner of a few leaves, affecting a few words on Z4, a smudge around the date on the title-page and slightly browned, but otherwise in good condition. The spine and hinges show some cracks and the boards a few small worm holes, but otherwise also good. A practical medical encyclopaedia describing about 420 medicinal plants and their uses, intended primarily for poor people.

L’anno seguente, nel 1598, lo stesso Franco stampa il celebre Viaggio da Venetia a Costantinopoli per Marre, e per Terra, et insieme quello di Terra Santa cioe Città, Castelli, Porti, Isole, Monti, Fiumi, e Mari, opera utile, à Mercanti, Marinari, et à studiosi di Geografia di Giuseppe Rosaccio, nel quale inserisce alcune sue carte, tra le quali questa. Giacomo Franco, figlio naturale del pittore e incisore Battista Franco e di tale Francesca da Urbino, nacque a Venezia, o forse più probabilmente a Urbino, nel 1550. Esercitò, sempre a Venezia, il mestiere di incisore, calcografo ed editore, benché nel suo testamento, rogato il 16 giugno 1620 dal notaio Fausto Doglioni, egli si definisca "desegnador". Il suo nome non ricorre mai negli atti dell'arte dei "libreri, stampatori e ligadori", mentre si trova negli elenchi della corporazione dei pittori, alle date 1606 e 1619, termini che indicano probabilmente l'anno di iscrizione all'arte, e quello di cessazione dell'attività. La sua attività di illustratore fu vastissima, ma la sua fama è legata sopratutto a due opere sul costume veneziano. Come incisore siglava per solito "Jacobus Francus, Giacomo Franco, Franco fecit"; come editore "Franco Forma". Etching with engraving, about 1597, signed on plate in the title. Beautiful impresson, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in excellent condition. Rare map included for the first time in Descrittione Geografica Delle Isole, Città, & Fortezze principali, che si trovano in mare nel viaggio da Venetia a Costantinopoli, con molte altre a queste vicine, di nuovo aggiunte printed in Venice in 1597 by Giacomo Franco . Giacomo Franco, the natural son of the painter and printmaker Battista Franco and that Francesca da Urbino, was born in Venice, or perhaps more likely in Urbino in 1550. Exercised, in Venice, the profession of an engraver, copperplate engraver and publisher, although in his will, drawn June 16, 1620 by the notary Fausto Doglioni, he defines "desegnador". His name never occurs in the acts of art "libreri, stampatori e ligadori", while it is in the lists of the painters' guild, the dates 1606 and 1619, terms that probably indicate the year of enrollment to the art, and to cessation. His work as an illustrator was very wide, but his fame is mainly due to two works on the Venetian costume. As for scoring siglava usual "Francus Jacobus, Giacomo Franco, Franco fecit" as a publisher "Franco Forma". Dimensioni 173 140mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Ashe's was the first abridgment of Plowden. Well received, it had a second edition in 1607 and was reissued in an English translation in 1650. First published in 1571 and covering the period of 1550-1580, Plowden's Reports marks the transition away from the cumulative method of the Year Books to one based on exposition and commentary. In most respects it is a precursor of the modern reporter. The annotations in our copy indicate patient study. The notes on the preliminary leaves are case references linked to the text. The notes to the margins are glosses and summaries of key points. Some sources, most notably the Pollard and Redgrave Short-Title Catalogue, give a publicaton date of 1598.

        Allegoria della Religione

      1597 - Acquaforte, 1597, firmata in lastra in basso. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Eseguita nel clima della Controriforma, l’opera è fortemente simbolica e rappresenta una personificazione della religione cristiana. In sembianze femminili e circondata da aureola, la Religio tiene con la mano destra un volume aperto, su cui sono incisi il primo e il secondo dei Comandamenti. Il suo abbigliamento è semplice, a indicare il disprezzo per gli eccessi mondani; il seno nudo a esprimere la purezza. Il gomito è appoggiato alla croce, da cui pende una briglia, simbolo della passione e resurrezione di Cristo quali elementi guida della chiesa e della vita cristiana. Sotto i suoi piedi, la morte, a indicare la vittoria del bene sul male, della luce sulle tenebre. La tecnica esecutiva è volutamente essenziale, in quanto la finalità dell’opera non è estetica ma didattica. L’attenzione dello spettatore deve essere tutta rivolta al messaggio della figura, non alla sua bellezza estetica. È interessante notare che, la stessa iconografia ricorre in incisioni di maestri fiamminghi contemporanei, come Pieter Baltens e Crispijn de Passe I, documentando in tal modo la circolazione culturale tra il Nord Europa e l'Italia. Degno di nota è il fatto che l'immagine della Religio ha le sue origini in un emblema protestante contenuto nella seconda edizione dei Poemata di Theodore de Bèze, il successore di Calvino. Molto poco si conosce della vita e opere di Domenico Vitus. Monaco dell’Abbazia benedettina di Vallombrosa, svolse un ruolo centrale nella diffusione a rispetto delle principali riforme introdotte da papa Gregorio XII nel clima della Controriforma. Tra il 1576 e il 1586 curò un’opera a stampa sui pricipali temi religiosi discussi all’epoca. Nagler sottolinea che l’opera di Vitus fu influenzata da Agostino Veneziano e Giorgio Ghisi. Alcune delle sue incisioni furono realizzate per lo Speculum di Antonio Lafrery. Opera molto rara. Virtually nothing is known about the life and work of Domenico Vitus. He was a monk at the Vallombrosa Benedictine Abbey in Tuscany which played a very active role in enforcing the major ecclesiastical reforms introduced by Pope Gregory XIII during the Counter-Reformation. Between 1576 and 1586 Vitus created a small printed oeuvre on largely religious themes. Nagler draws attention to the fact that Vitus was influenced in his work as an engraver by Agostino Veneziano and Giorgio Ghisi. He also produced a number of engravings for the Speculum of the Roman publisher Antonio Lafreri. The Pictura Religionis is missing from Nagler’s list. The work has been executed in a rough and rather crude engraving technique, which was not intended to achieve any aesthetic effect but rather to serve didactic and religious purposes, which was fully in keeping with the aims of the Counter-Reformation. The formal austerity of the execution matches the earnestness of the message. The work features a personification of religion. A winged, partially bare-breasted female figure, who is surrounded by a halo, holds in her right hand an open book, in which the first and second commandments in the Bible are inscribed as a motto. Leaning with her right elbow on the cross, from the crossbeam of which hangs a bridle, she tramples death underfoot. The simple clothing of Religio symbolises her contempt for worldly goods. Her bare breast stands for purity and the cross for peace. With her wings she teaches mankind to strive heavenwards and with the halo she drives out spiritual darkness. The bridle cautions moderation, while the pose adopted by Religio symbolises victory over death (see Ilja M. Veldman, Crispijn de Passe and his progeny (1564–1670). A Century of Print Production, Rotterdam 2001, p. 115). Interestingly enough, the same iconography can be found on engravings by contemporary Flemish masters, such as Pieter Baltens (Hollstein 9) and Crispijn de Passe I (Holl 628), thus documenting the

        Riuiera de Genova da Ponente & Riviera de Genova di Levante

      Bologna 1597 - Carta geografica tratta da L'Italia a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. Una prima stesura delle carte della Liguria viene realizzata dal Magini nel 1597, basandosi su un disegno fornitogli dal prete Orazio Bracelli e su informazioni ricevute dal Duca Gonzaga. Completamente ignorate, apparentemente, le carte a stampa realizzate precedentemente. La stesura definitiva avviene nel 1609, elaborando il manoscritto del Bracelli con altri disegni fornitogli da due gentiluomo genovesi non meglio noti. Ignorata, anche in questo caso, fu la carta di J.B. Vrients, edita nel 1608 nel "Theatrum" di Ortelius, prima carta a stampa della sola Liguria. Le carte vennero alla luce nel 1609, ad opera del Wright. Le due carte separate delle Riviere costituiscono una novità assoluta, modello per tutti i cartografi successivi.

        Presbiteri Iohannis Imperium

      Colonia - 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

        Jacobi de Vitriaco (.) libri duo. Quorum prior orientalis sive Hierosolymitanae, alter occidentalis historiae nomine inscribuntur. Omnia nunc primum studio & opera D. Francisci Moschi (.) edita.

      - Duaci, Ex officina typographica Balthazaris Belleri [Douai, Balthazar Bellère], 1597. In-8, plein vélin souple, dos titré à la plume (reliure ancienne), (46), 479 p., (1) p. bl., vignette de titre sur bois à la marque de l'imprimeur, portrait gravé. Edition princeps, rare, établie par l'historien humaniste François Mosch, docteur de l'Université de Douai sur un manuscrit aujourd'hui perdu. Portrait gravé sur cuivre hors texte du dédicataire, l'archiduc Albert d'Autriche, archevêque de Tolède. Contient une vie de l'auteur et des notes par André Van Hoye (1551-1631). Prélat de l'Orient latin, originaire de Champagne, Jacques de Vitry (ca. 1160-1240) devint Maître de l'Université de Paris, chanoine augustinien à Oignies et entra au service de l'évêque de Liège. Il prêcha la croisade contre les Albigeois, puis pour la Terre Sainte où il se rendit en 1216 comme évêque de Saint-Jean d'Acre. Il accompagna l'armée de la cinquième croisade et assista à la prise de Damiette. Revenu en Europe, il fut appelé auprès du pape en 1228. Cette ‘Histoire de Jérusalem’ est divisée en deux parties: "Historia orientalis" consacrée à la Terre Sainte et à l'histoire des Croisades, jusqu'à la cinquième; et "Historia orientalis", tableau social et religieux de l'Europe de son temps. Jacques de Vitry s'avère un grand historien et l’un des meilleurs observateurs de son époque. Souvent citée, son histoire demeure une source fondamentale pour l’histoire des croisades, d'autant plus que le manuscrit, anciennement conservé au prieuré des chanoines augustins d'Oignies, est aujourd'hui perdu. Parmi de nombreux détails, on remarque un passage qui témoigne que la boussole, dont on fait remonter l'origine au XIVe siècle, était déjà employée aux XIIIe s. pour la navigation. Sur cet ouvrage et cette édition princeps, cf. J.-F. Hinnebusch, ‘The Historia Occidentalis of Jacques de Vitry’, Univ. Press Fribourg, 1972, p. 65 et passim. (Adams, V-901. Brunet, V, 1326 souligne la rareté de ce volume. Duthilloeul, 'Bibliographie douaisienne', n°208). Quelques petits accrocs de papier et petits travaux de vers aux derniers feuillets. Des brunissures, plus soutenues à certains cahiers. Provenance: bibliothèque des marquis Terzi, éminente famille originaire de Bergame, avec ex-libris gravé et petite signature au titre. La bibliothèque fut dispersée aux enchères à Paris en 1861. Bon exemplaire.

        Wirtemberg ducatus

      Artist: Hondius Hendrik ( - 1650 ) Amsterdam; issued in : Amsterdam; date: 1610 1597 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Very good; size (in cm): 38 x 45 - description: Map of Würtemberg - vita of the artist: "Jodocus Hondius (1563 ?1612) was a Dutch engraver, and cartographer. He is best known for his early maps of the New World and Europe, for re-establishing the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator, and for his portraits of Francis Drake. He helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography in Europe in the 17th century. He was born in Wakken and grew up in Ghent. In his early years he established himself as an engraver, instrument maker and globe maker. In 1584 he moved to London to escape religious difficulties in Flanders.While in England, Hondius was instrumental in publicizing the work of Francis Drake, who had made a circumnavigation of the world in the late 1570s. In particular, in 1589 Hondius produced a now famous map of the bay of New Albion, where Drake briefly established a settlement on the west coast of North America. Hondius' map was based on journal and eyewitness accounts of the trip and has long fueled speculation about the precise location of Drake's landing, which has not yet been firmly established by historians. Hondius is also thought to be the artist of several well-known portraits of Drake that are now in the National Portrait Gallery in London.In 1593 he moved to Amsterdam, where he remained until the end of his life. In co-operation with the Amsterdam publisher Cornelis Claesz. in 1604 he purchased the plates of Gerard Mercator's Atlas from Mercator's grandson. Mercator's work had languished in comparison to the rival Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius. Hondius republished Mercator's work with 36 additional maps, including several which he himself had produced. Despite the addition of his own contributions, Hondius gave Mercator full credit as the author of the work, listing himself as the publisher. Hondius' new edition of Mercator's work was a great success, selling out after a year. Hondius later published a second edition, as well as a pocket version Atlas Minor. The maps have since become known as the "Mercator/Hondius series".In the French edition of the Atlas Minor we find one of the first instances of a thematic map using map symbols. This is a map entitled Designatio orbis christiani (1607) showing the dispersion of major religions.[1]Between 1605 and 1610 he was employed by John Speed to engrave the plates for Speed's The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine.Hondius died, aged 48, in Amsterdam. After his death, his publishing work in Amsterdam was continued by his widow, two sons, Jodocus II and Henricus, and son-in-law Johannes Janssonius, whose name appears on the Atlas as co-publisher after 1633.[2] Eventually, starting with the first 1606 edition in Latin, about 50 editions of the Atlas were released in the main European languages. In the Islamic world, the atlas was partially translated by the Turkish scholar Katip Çelebi. The series is sometimes called the "Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius" series because of Janssonius's later contributions." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        CRONICHE DE GLI ORDINI INSTITVITI DAL P. S. FRANCESCO. . . .PARTE PRIMA; DELLE CRONICHE. . . .PARTE SECONDA; DELLE CRONICHE. . . .PARTE TERZA

      Venice: Paulo Ugolino, 1597; Giolito, 1598; Erasmo Viotti, 1597. FIRST EDITIONS. While the highly ornate and animated decoration of these volumes is an instant source of delight for the eye, we are also fortunate to find here a very good state of preservation and a distinguished provenance, along with a text that provides a significant monastic history. Almost certainly executed in Venice at the end of the 16th century, the bindings obviously make up a three-volume set, but the decoration is slightly different from one volume to the next. The central, unifying oval on each cover marks them as having belonged to an "S. Bernarda Balbi." Since the "S" quite possibly stands for "Suora," the Italian word for a religious "sister," we are presented with the intriguing possibility that this set may have originally belonged to a nun. Although we could find no record of a Sister Bernarda, the Balbi name is instantly recognizable as belonging to n ancient and very wealthy Venetian family (the Palazzo Balbi was erected on the Canal Grande of Venice in 1582 and still stands today). The text consists of three separately published works that together form a three-volume history of the Franciscan Order by the Portugese Bishop and historian, Marcos de Lisboa. In the third volume, gathering Nn has been incorrectly imposed, and there seems to be a page that was never printed, but other copies, like the one examined at the Biblioteca Classense in Ravenna, have the same problem. The favorable condition of the bindings suggests that these volumes have been well looked after over the years. Other than the Balbis, we know that they have passed through the collections of at least two other distinguished owners, most notably the famous bibliophile and representative of the Rothschild banking house, Baron Horace de Landau (1824-1903). Baron Landau had an outstanding collection, featuring much early printing as well as many important illustrated works and luxurious illuminated manuscripts; his library was disposed of through a number of sales in the late 1940s.. Vol. I: 205 x 147 mm. (8 x 5 3/4"); Vols. II & III: 215 x 153 mm. (8 1/2 x 6"). Three volumes. FIRST EDITIONS. BEAUTIFUL CONTEMPORARY VENETIAN RED MOROCCO, all boards heavily gilt with intricate acanthus leaves surrounding a central oval inscribed "S. BERNARDA" on the upper and "BALBI" on the lower covers, the larger two volumes incorporating bee and vase tools into the design; raised bands with densely gilt compartments, all edges gilt and gauffered. Each volume with a few woodcut initials and headpieces, title pages with printers' devices, volumes II & III with full page woodcuts following preliminary leaves. Front pastedown of each volume with the bookplates of the Vicomte de Cossette and Baron Horace de Landau. Volume II with one-inch crack to the lower joints, other trivial signs of use to the leather, the text with occasional negligible blemishes, light dampstaining to the lower corners of each volume (darker on the preliminary and final leaves and affecting a little more of the page in volume I); not perfect, but all of the defects minor, and in general A FINE SET, the elaborately gilt bindings remarkably lustrous, and quite clean throughout. While the highly ornate and animated decoration of these volumes is an instant source of delight for the eye, we are also fortunate to find here a very good state of preservation and a distinguished provenance, along with a text that provides a significant monastic history. Almost certainly executed in Venice at the end of the 16th century, the bindings obviously make up a three-volume set, but the decoration is slightly different from one volume to the next. The central, unifying oval on each cover marks them as having belonged to an "S. Bernarda Balbi." Since the "S" quite possibly stands for "Suora," the Italian word for a religious "sister," we are presented with the intriguing possibility that this set may have originally belonged to a nun. Although we could find no record of a Sister Bernarda, the Balbi name is instantly recognizable as belonging to n ancient and very wealthy Venetian family (the Palazzo Balbi was erected on the Canal Grande of Venice in 1582 and still stands today). The text consists of three separately published works that together form a three-volume history of the Franciscan Order by the Portugese Bishop and historian, Marcos de Lisboa. In the third volume, gathering Nn has been incorrectly imposed, and there seems to be a page that was never printed, but other copies, like the one examined at the Biblioteca Classense in Ravenna, have the same problem. The favorable condition of the bindings suggests that these volumes have been well looked after over the years. Other than the Balbis, we know that they have passed through the collections of at least two other distinguished owners, most notably the famous bibliophile and representative of the Rothschild banking house, Baron Horace de Landau (1824-1903). Baron Landau had an outstanding collection, featuring much early printing as well as many important illustrated works and luxurious illuminated manuscripts; his library was disposed of through a number of sales in the late 1940s.

        Ligvria ò Stato della Repubblica di Genova

      1597. Carta geografica tratta da L'Italia a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. Una prima delle carte viene realizzata dal Magini nel 1597, basandosi su un disegno fornitogli dal prete Orazio Bracelli e su informazioni ricevute dal Duca Gonzaga. Completamente ignorate, apparentemente, le carte a stampa realizzate precedentemente. La stesura definitiva avviene nel 1609, elaborando il manoscritto del Bracelli con altri disegni fornitogli da due gentiluomo genovesi non meglio noti. Ignorata, anche in questo caso, fu la carta di J.B. Vrients, edita nel 1608 nel "Theatrum" di Ortelius, prima carta a stampa della sola Liguria. Le carte vennero alla luce nel 1609, ad opera del Wright. Le due carte separate delle Riviere costituiscono una novità assoluta, modello per tutti i cartografi successivi.

        De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem, libri duo.

      Venice: Gaspare Bindoni, 1597. First edition, first issue, one of five known large and thick paper copies, of the first book devoted entirely to plastic surgery. Only two of these are in private hands: the present copy, in a contemporary binding, and the Norman copy, which is an ex-library copy in modern binding (sold Christie's New York, March 18, 1998, $29,900). "Tagliacozzi studied under Girolamo Cardano at Bologna and later became professor of surgery and anatomy at that institution. This work, "Concerning the surgery of the mutilated by grafting," is a classic in the history of plastic surgery and is especially noteworthy for its description of rhinoplasty. Rhinoplasty had been practiced in ancient India and, in the thirteenth century, by a family of itinerant Sicilian surgeons who kept the operation a family secret. The volume is divided into two parts: the first, "Theory of the art of plastic surgery," is about the structure, function, and physiology of the nose; and the second part, "Practice of the art," describes and illustrates the instruments and operative procedures for restoration of the nose, lip, and ear. Tagliacozzi also fully discussed the complications, such as hemorrhage and gangrene, that often occurred during these operations. The numerous full-page woodcuts are well-executed and illustrate many of the techniques described in the text. The immediate popularity of the work caused it to be pirated by another Venetian printer, and that is the edition mentioned by Osler" (Heirs of Hippocrates). Rhinoplasty was much in demand in the sixteenth century and later, both as a remedy for the grotesque deformity of 'saddle nose' caused by syphilis, and for injuries resulting from duels (the great astronomer Tycho Brahe had his nose sliced off in a duel, and was forced to wear a replacement reportedly made of silver and gold). "Although many earlier writers such as Celsus had discussed aspects of plastic operations, Tagliacozzi was the first to work toward establishing their scientific validity by publishing surgical procedures that had for generations been closely guarded secrets, and by improving these procedures in the light of the best medical knowledge of his day. Tagliacozzi described and fully illustrated the method of rhinoplasty that uses a graft from the patient's arm, as well as various cosmetic operations on the ears, yet his contemporaries refused to adopt his methods, possibly for fear of complications, or possibly because the Catholic Church regarded plastic operations as meddling with the work of God (after Tagliacozzi's death, the Church had his body exhumed and reburied in unconsecrated ground). Tagliacozzi's work remained virtually forgotten until the revival of plastic surgery by Joseph Contantine Carpue and Carl Ferdinand von Graefe in the early nineteenth century. "The series of twenty-two full-page woodcuts in Book III of De curtorum chirurgia depict Tagliacozzi's instruments and the individual steps of the various reconstructive operations through the post-operative stage. Tagliacozzi went to great expense to have these illustrations prepared, as he indicated in his letter of I6 July 1596 to the Senators of Bologna (reprinted in Gnudi & Webster, p. 175). The artist who created them remains anonymous, although he may have been one of the many artists patronized by Duke Vincenzo Gonzaga, a powerful supporter of the arts in Bologna and the man to whom Tagliacozzi dedicated De curtorum chirurgia" (Norman). Tagliacozzi was born in Bologna on 2 March 1545 and died there in 1599. He enrolled as a medical student at the university of Bologna in 1565, and was so gifted that while a student he was assigned the post of lecturer under the supervision of the professor of anatomy and surgery Giulio Cesare Aranzio (1530-99). He began teaching anatomy at the Ospedale della Vita Morte even before he completed his studies in 1570. "After Tagliacozzi graduated, Aranzio got him the position of lecturer in surgery at the university. In the meantime, this exceptional young man enrolled in the faculty of philosophy and after completing his studies in 1576, became a full member of the Collegio di Arti e Medicina, better known as the Collegio dei Dottori. "Aranzio played an important role in Tagliacozzi's professional career. He not only secured the post of lecturer in both anatomy and surgery for him but then designated him as the successor to his chair. As well as these well-deserved favours he apparently gave him operating experience, as Gnudi and Webster report: "Tagliacozzi was directly indebted to Giulio Cesare Aranzio for his first practical lessons on the Art." Does this mean that Aranzio also taught his student the technique of rhinoplasty? This would be plausible because he himself had mastered the procedure, as we learn from a work discovered by Gnudi and Webster. It appears that the Polish physician, Wojciech Oczko visited Italy from 1565 to 1569, remaining for a considerable time in Bologna. In his book Przymiot he wrote admiringly "what Aranzio, professor of surgery, used regularly to do [facere solebat] during my days in Bologna, employing the skin of the arm and without touching the muscle ... and there resulted a beautiful nose." However little is known about Tagliacozzi's activities as a surgeon before 1568, the year he wrote his famous letter to Mercurialis. "During the sixteenth century Gerolamo Mercurialis (1530 - ca. 1604) was one of the most influential figures in Italian medicine. He studied at Bologna and taught at the University of Pisa before becoming professor of medicine at Padua. He was the author of a systematic treatise on skin diseases in 1572 and well-known illustrated compendium on medical gymnastics in 1573. As a cultivated intellectual with a broad range of interests, he was appointed Superintendent of the Vatican Monuments by the Pope. "In 1585 Mercurialis published the first edition of De Decoratione Liber in which he mentions the nasal reconstructions that were being carried out in Italy: "In our time applause has been accorded for the discoveries of those who restored noses, certainly in Calabria," and adds, "There is also the excellent Tagliacotus in Bologna, who recently showed me, when I was there visiting, two patients whose noses had been reconstructed." "Tagliacozzi was fully aware of Mercurialis' influence in academic circles and "in Bologna on the 22nd day of February in the year of our Lord 1586" wrote him a letter to inform him that since his visit he had successfully completed another two nasal reconstructions ... until Tagliacozzi published his book, this four-page letter constituted the only source of information available on the rhinoplasty technique as it was practiced in Bologna. In his letter Tagliacozzi provided a concise and lucid description of the operation, although he expressed concern that its brevity might induce the inexpert surgeon: "... like a sailor who has learned [to navigate] from books, to attempt the operation without success, to the detriment both of the patient and the very reputation of the Art." "Tagliacozzi had good reason to be worried because he had already seen how his method could be misinterpreted or completely misunderstood. As he wrote: "Vesalius, Paré, Gourmelin and others have written that a small hole or cavity of prepared on the arm, in which the mutilated nose is buried until the flesh grows into it, and that this flesh is moulded into the shape of a nose." This of course was a wholly incorrect interpretation of the technique, which was to raise a flap on the arm and stitch it to the nose before separating it at a later operation. The nose was not "buried:" beneath the skin of the arm. "Tagliacozzi furnished instructions on the preparation of the patient for the operation. For example: "Briefly, any cacochymia [he probably meant any general illness] must be removed ... [Patients suffering from] a venereal disease must be rued out absolutely ... The bowels should be moved daily or be stimulated appropriately." However most of his letter covered the technical details of the operation itself. "An incision is made in the skin of one of the arms, right or left, down to the flesh, right down to the surface of the muscle; in other words, simple and solid skin is taken from the anterior brachial region." "One of his next points was destined to be either misinterpreted or completely ignored and remained a controversial issue for 150 years. Tagliacozzi wrote: "The removal of the bandage should be decided on the basis of the union and on a satisfactory nourishment of the skin and this will vary considerably according to the varying temperament of the patient. But when one observes a good union of the wound and a good nourishment of the skin, then one may cut the arm from the face." Tagliacozzi did not specify exactly how much time should elapse before dividing the flap, leaving it instead to the judgement of the surgeon. But he did conclude that "a period of about fourteen days is in general necessary for the process of thickening and solidification to become complete." These straightforward recommendations were often ignored by Tagliacozzi's detractors, who claimed that the patient must remain for no less than forty days in a very uncomfortable position with his arm attached to his face. This they believed made the operation unendurable. Tagliacozzi, no doubt having already had to persuade worried patients, took care to explain that "on the contrary the procedure is so well tolerated that, even leaving aside the outcome, [this procedure] has won universal admiration." "Tagliacozzi's instructions concluded with an explanation of how to splint and bandage the flap, a complex but necessary manoeuvre to ensure the proper shape of the new nose. Finally, he listed with pride the aristocratic patients, three Italians and a Belgian, whom he had successfully treated and announced to his illustrious colleague in Padua that he was writing a treatise in which every aspect of the operation would be thoroughly discussed. "[In 1597] Tagliacozzi published De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem under the auspices of the University of Bologna and with the financial support of Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua. The result was a unique work - the first text of plastic surgery in the history of medicine. [In it] the author analyses the principles of the operation, discusses the indications and contraindications, explains the healing process (cohalascere) as the flap becomes attached to the recipient site, and describes the surgical instruments (often of his own design) that were required. The problems of post-operative care and the prevention of complications are not neglected. All of the difficulties that a surgeon might encounter in the creation of a new nose are raised and discussed in detail. Finally, he explains how the flap could be used to repair other parts of the face" (Santoni-Rugiu & Sykes, pp. 185-9). Two issues of this book appeared in the same year: the second has the license printed on the verso of the title page, the first does not. According to Norman, all of the large and thick paper copies are of the first issue, as would be expected as they were presumably intended for presentation. Mortimer notes, however, that some first issue copies were printed on ordinary paper.

Contemporary half vellum over parchment boards made of old Hebrew manuscript, edges died in blue, manuscript lettering to spine and bottom edge, botton capital light wear, top capital with old repair, some gatherings with moderate toning.

        Novissima Urbis Romae descriptio A° M.D.LXXXXVII.

      1597. " - RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE - Pianta prospettica di Roma moderna, orientata con il nord a sinistra. La mappa fu pubblicata nel volume ""Pars antiquitatum Romanarum seu Topographia Romanae Urbis..."" di T. de Bry, edito nel 1597 a Francoforte. La pianta del De Bry è una copia, di formato ridotto, della pianta di Roma moderna di Ambrogio Brambilla, edita da N. van Aelst a Roma nel 1590. Della pianta del Brambilla ripropone, dunque, l'inconsueta rotazione di Piazza del Campidoglio, per mostrare la sistemazione michelangiolesca del Della Porta. Unica curiosa variazione, è la presenza del progetto di Sangallo per San Pietro. Vi sono visibili gli obelischi secondo la sistemazione voluta da Sisto V, e i tracciati delle grandi vie rettilinee corrispondenti al rinnovamento urbanistico iniziato sotto Gregorio XIII e proseguito sotto Sisto V. Nell'angolo sinistro, in basso, la sigla: T.D.B. Le indicazioni toponomastiche si trovano parte nella pianta, parte in una rubrica tipografica di 125 numeri, posta sotto lo schiaccio, nel margine inferiore del foglio, seguita dalla sottoscrizione Theodor. de Bry. La rubrica è presente soltanto nella PRIMA EDIZIONE della lastra, rispetto alla quale le edizioni del XVII sec, senza legenda, sono da considerarsi comuni. Acquaforte e bulino, completo dei margini tipografici originali, consueta traccia della piega centrale, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Bell'esemplare della rara prima edizione della pianta, con inchiostrazione molto densa." " RARE FIRST EDITION Modern Rome perspective map, oriented with north to the left. The map was published in the De Bry work ""Pars antiquitatum Romanarum seu Topographia Romanae Urbis ..."" Frankfurt, 1597. The De Bry's map is a copy, in reduced size, of the map by Ambrogio Brambilla, published by N. van Aelst in Rome in 1590. De Bry map repeats, therefore, the unusual rotation of the Piazza del Campidoglio, to show the Michelangelo'setting in the final construction achieved by Della Porta. The only one curious variation, is the presence of Sangallo's design for St. Peter. The visible obelisks are in accord to the arrangement ordered by Sixtus V, and the tracks of the straight roads corresponding to the urban renewal begun under Pope Gregory XIII and continued under Sixtus V. Signed at bottom left corner: T.D.B. In the lower margin, a key of 125 places, and the signature Theodor. De Bry. The key is just on the example of the first edition. Etching and engraving, with the original typographical margins, in excellent condition." Francoforte Frankfurt Marigliani, p. 178 n. 81 385 305
