RUGHESI, Fausto.
Rome: Rughesi, c.1597. Two sheets conjoined as issued, total 530 x 700mm. Trimmed to neatline probably as issued. A fine map of Africa, decorated with an ornate title cartouche and numerous ships and sea-monsters. Peculiarly the dedication to the Duke of Mantua and his armorial in the top corners have been masked by placing oval paper patches on the copper plate, leaving two unprinted areas. It is known from correspondence between Annibale Chiepo and Rughesi that the Duke failed to pay the second half of his promised commission to Rughesi, causing the publisher to remove the references to the duke. The only cartographic work of Fausto Rughesi, a Tuscan architect working in Rome, was a set of maps of the world and four continents, all originally dedicated to Vincenzo Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua (1562-1612). Gonzaga employed Giovanni Antonio Magini as tutor to his sons and has Magini's Atlas of Italy dedicated to him. Even individually Rughesi's maps are extremely rare: Betz and Burden could find only two examples each of the Africa and America respectively, and neither mention the two blanked-out areas. BETZ: 36, 'exceedingly beautiful, finely-engraved map of Africa. All of his maps are exceedingly rare'; See SHIRLEY 206 & BURDEN 108.

[2] 728, [52] S. mit zahlreichen Zierstücken und Initialen. Folio, flexibler Ganzpergamenteinband der Zeit. (Buchblöcke gelöst).

Der Spätscholastiker Suarez hat als Lehrer und Schriftsteller vor allem die Aristotelische Philosophie interpretiert und kommentiert. Seine " Metaphysischen Disputationen" mit Index zur Metaphysik des Aristotels wurden auch von den Protestanten als Lehrbuch verwendet.(...) Sie sind zu einer Hauptquelle für die Kenntnis scholastischer Philosophie bis in die Gegegnwart hinein geworden; aus ihnen hat unter anderem Leibniz geschöpft." (Ziegenfuss, II, 662 ff.) Die klassische spanische Bindung gelöst, aber wohlerhalten.

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.).

Wytfliet, Cornelis van
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.

Athenaeus, of Naucratis
[Heidelberg]: Apud Hieronymum Commelinum, 1597. Folio, 36cm, 702, [50] pages. Index. Text printed in Latin and Greek in parallel columns. One of the most important works of late classical antiquity dealing with food, wine and table customs, dating from the third century A.D. The book is a fictionalized symposium of 21 artists, writers, musicians and surgeons, discussing all things which, according to Greek custom, should adorn a banquet. The names of the most famous gastronomists and most celebrated cooks are recorded, and the text of a recipe from a lost cookbook by Mithaecus is quoted -- the earliest recipe by a named author in any language. The virtues and qualities of various wines are the subjects of lengthy discourses. Table ornament and decoration are also treated. Full leather with raised bands and gilt-lettered spine. Some rubbing and chipping to leather extremities, minor damage and text loss to final leaf of index, else VG+ or better, a clean and tightly-bound copy. This copy is from the library of English politician and philologist John Horne Tooke (1736-1812). [Bitting, pages 18-19; Cagle 448; Crahan, One Hundred Sixteen Uncommon Books on Food & Drink 8].

Giovanni Antonio MAGINI (1555 - 1617)
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 bea … [Click Below for Full Description]
