WYTFLIET, Cornelius Van
Joannes Bogardus, 1597]. Map of the East Coast, from "the first atlas of America" Double-page engraved map (231 by 295 mm to the neatline, full margins showing the plate mark). The first edition of Wytfliet's map depicting the northeastern coast of North America from Virginia to Cape Breton in New France. "This was the most accurate map of the east coast until de Laet (1630), and only the second to use Virginia in the title. NORVMBEGA, used at first to delineate a large area and a mythical city, later came to be seen to represent the area of Penobscot River in present day Maine" (Burden 103). Despite it's relative accuracy when compared with earlier maps of the region, Wytfliet follows his predecessors De Jode and Gastaldi in placing the Chesapeake Bay too far to the north, at the latitude of Southern Maine. Wytfliet's 'Descriptionis Ptolemaicae Augmentum' was, as the title suggests, marketed as a supplement to Ptolemy's 'Geographia.' Its text was based on the writings of Ramusio, Hakluyt, de Bry, Acosta and others. The work was evidently popular as two further Latin editions appeared in 1598 and 1603. Provenance: The John W. Galiardo collection. Burden 103 [Attributes: First Edition]

VAN WYTFLIET, Cornelis
Louvain: Cornelis van Wytfliet, 1597. Map. Copper-plate engraving. Image measures 11.25" x 9.25". This important 1597 map is from the first atlas of the New World by Cornelis van Wytfliet. The atlas contains some of the first printed maps of the New World as well as a history of the voyages of Columbus, Pizarro, Verrazano and other explorers. This map depicts the East Coast of the North America from the Outer Banks of North Carolina to the Canada. The map is only the second map to use 'Virginia' as part of its title and was the most accurate map of the region until Joannes de Laet published his 1630 map 'Nova Anglia, Novvm Belgivm Et Virginia'. At the time, the name 'Virginia' referred to the entire Mid-Atlantic region. The map shows the early knowledge of the region (or lack thereof) just prior to the English voyages of discovery and settlement. Long Island and Cape Cod, two of the most prominent geographical features of the region are missing from the map, so is Hudson River. Because of the notoriously perilous waters around New England and Cape Cod and the Carolina Outer Banks, the regions between Nova Scotia and Virginia were usually avoided and hence poorly mapped. Other anomalies follow some inaccuracies from earlier maps, resulting in the entire coastline pushed northward by about 5 degrees. Chesapeake Bay appears too far north of its actual position, near present day southern Maine. What could be Cape Hatteras appears here as C. de las arenas also placed further north. The most fascinating highlight of the map is the name Norumbega which appears on the map. Thi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Domenico VITUS
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Arrivabene, Lodovico
Verona Girolamo Discepolo, 1597. First edition. Small 4to (21 x 15 cm), pp.[xxiv], 576 (mis-numbered '526'), [20, index], [2, blank]. A very good copy bound in 19th-century polished calf by Bedford, neatly rebacked. A few marks to calf. All edges gilt. Text washed. A chivalric romance set in China, which is depicted as the most virtuous nation known to mankind. Enzolom, a governor of ancient China, is portrayed as an exemplar of the excellent prince and the perfect captain. The eldest of his sons, the great Vitei, is the most valiant and wisest of all knights and kings. It is in the strange ambience of China that these exemplary men live and perform their great deeds. It is. the first in a long line of didactic works in prose in which China is celebrated as a model state. In short, the China that was revered in the Enlightenment is anticipated in this work of the late sixteenth century' (Lach II.ii pp. 220–23). Often seen as a purely literary fiction, this romance was grounded in substantial research by the author. Arrivabene drew from Mendoza's popular history of China, other contemporary European sources, Jesuit reports, and Ramusio's collection of travels for his literary depiction of China. Lodovico Arrivabene (circa 1530-1597) was the leading literary figure of the Gonzaga court at Mantua from 1589, well-known for his cosmopolitan interests. Cordier BS 17; Lach II, 2, pp.219-222; Lach & Foss, p.18; Löwendahl 35. COPAC records copies at the British Library, Manchester, and Oxford (two copies) only. [Attributes: First Edition]

WYTWYLER Ulrich, Abbot of Einsiedeln
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 thhis 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.

Custos Dominicus
Set of twenty-six engravings. [Augsburg, after 1597]. A complete suite of twenty-six plates (108-121x77-90 mm), in the second state of three. Each plate with 4-9-mm margins on all four sides. Plates numbered I-XXVI, at the bottom centre of each plate. Plate XII is signed with the unidentified monogram 'SBR' in reverse, and with the letter 'A' on the left side of the Roman number. Good impressions, very fresh.Exceptionally rare and complete suite of engravings attributed to the Flemish printer and engraver Dominicus Custos (1560-1612), active in Augsburg from 1590, here in their second, previously unrecorded state. A precious survey of the ornamental grotesque in late sixteenth-century-German graphic art, and an unusually playful testimony to the charm of some of the most imaginative and remarkable 'translations' of sixteenth-century French illustration. Until the discovery of this second-state set, only one copy of the first state (Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Cabinet des Estampes, Res. Tf-1-Fold, Marolles N° 222), and only an incomplete copy of what is now considered to be the third state (held at the Schloss Wolffegg, Kupferstichkabinett, but possibly now lost) were known. The Parisian, first-state edition of the Songes Drolatiques Allemands contains a proper printed title-page – Les Songes Drolatiques de Pantagruel ou sont continues plusieurs figures de l'invention de Maistre Francois Rabelais. Imprimé en Augustae Vindelicorum par Iean Pretoir, en despens du Dominique Custodis. M.D.XCVII – based on which art historians have attributed the role of the pub … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rara carta geografica inserita per la prima volta nella 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 stampata a Venezia da Giacomo Franco nel 1597. 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 "Jacob … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Cornelis WYTFLIET (Attivo intorno al 1590)
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.

Geneva Bible
1597. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An exceedingly rare 16th-century Geneva Bible compete with Old and New Testaments, the Apocrypha, Grashop's Bible Chart, and The Address to the Christian Reader. The Geneva version was translated into English by William Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, and Thomas Sampson. This 1597 printing is a near word-for-word reprint of the 1586 and 1588 Geneva versions. It is printed in double-column, black letter type with verse numbers (The Geneva Bible was the first English Bible to use verse numbers). Each page is filled with references and notes in the margins. Even after the 1611 King James English Bible was published, the Geneva Bible would still be popular edition of the Puritans into the mid-17th-century. The Church of England did not recognize the Geneva Bible as canon and thus had no official status in the English Church; however, all readers of the Geneva Bible were given aid in understanding scripture through the help of T. Grashop's Bible Chart which advises the reader on how to approach the biblical text. [Attributes: First Edition]

GALENOS
Venedig, Giunta, 1597. Folio. 104 Bl.; 72 num. Bl.; 341 (recte 333) num. Bl. (ohne das letzte weiße). Mit Holzschnitt-Titelbordüre (wiederholt), verschiedenen Druckermarken u. 6 mehrfach wiederholten Kopf- bzw. Trennleisten in Holzschnitt. Halbpergament um 1900. Luc-Antonio Giunta d.Ä., Gründer der berühmten Drucker-Dynastie, hatte bereits 1522 und 1528 zwei lateinische Werkausgaben Galens herausgebracht. Eine vollständig neue Übersetzung erschien dann 1541 unter seine Nachfolgern. Diese eigentlich dritte Ausgabe galt fortan nach Giunta-eigener Zählung als erste Ausgabe - das größte und bedeutendste Verlagswerk der Giuntas, an dem u.a. auch Andreas Vesal mitgearbeitet hat. Bis 1625 erschienen hiervon acht weitere Auflagen. "Alle diese Ausgaben sind in Deutschland sehr selten, und man schätzt, der größeren Vollständigkeit und Genauigkeit wegen, vorzüglich die neueren derselben" (Choulant 114). Vorliegend der häufig fehlende allgemeine Einleitungsteil mit dem Vorwort des Herausgebers Fabius Paulinus, der Lebensbeschreibung Galens, einer Inhaltsübersicht über alle Bände der Ausgabe und einer "Synopsis" oder kapitelweisen Inhaltsangabe aller Galenischen Schriften. Band 1 mit dem separaten Titel: Isagogici libri, qui, cum in totam artem medicam introducunt, in principio totius operis sunt locati: ut priùs in ipsis tyrones exerceantur, quàm ad difficiliora artis accedant. Band 2 mit dem Titel: Galeni librorum prima classis, naturam corporis humani, hoc est elementa, temperaturas, humores ... partium anatomas, usus, facultates, & actiones, seminis deniq(ue) foetuumq(ue) tractatio … [Click Below for Full Description]

RIBADENEYRA, Pedro de
Anvers, Emprenta Plantiniana, cerca Ivan Moreto, 1597. 8º (18,5 x 11,7 cm.) 437 p. inc. port. con escudo xilográfico de la Compañía de Jesús, 4 h. sin num. de tabla. Encuadernación de época en pergamino marfilado, hilos y rueda dorada en planos, gran florón central también dorado, hierros en las esquinas, cabeza y cortes dorados. Ex-libris heráldico en guarda superior: Bibliotheca Marchionis de Rafal. Segunda edicion, más rara que la primera impresa dos años antes en Madrid, de esta importante obra política del humanista y erudito español, en oposición a la Razón de Estado de Maquiavelo, dedicada al príncipe Felipe, hijo de Felipe II y futuro Felipe III. “Defiende Ribadeneyra una política inspirada en los preceptos cristianos en oposición a la política defendida por Nicolás Maquiavelo en El Principe. Se trata de rebatir con una serie de normas de conducta cristianas la “razón de estado” como argumento que justifica conductas inmorales, oponiendo a la maquiavélica otra verdadera “razón de estado” cristiana. Es por tanto, una obra escrita explícitamente contra la doctrina de Maquiavelo “turbia y ponzoñosa” como se deja ver claramente ya desde el propio título. Según la mentalidad de la época, estipula que el príncipe no debe consentir herejes entre los católicos, como argumenta en el cap. XXVI del Libro primero “Que los herejes deben ser castigados y cuán perjudicial sea la libertad de conciencia”. El príncipe debe procurar que todos sus súbditos vivan debajo de una misma fe y religión y que no haya diferentes sectas en sus estados, mas que lo debe procurar con medios suaves … [Click Below for Full Description]
