Dès 1594, l'ancien ligueur Pierre Matthieu avait publié ainsi une Histoire des derniers troubles de France dans laquelle il laissait apparaître son allégeance royaliste toute fraîche. En effet, bien qu'il eût témoigné dans le passé de son attachement pour les princes de Guise et la Ligue catholique, il fut du nombre des députés que les habitants de Lyon envoyèrent à Henri IV en février 1594 pour l'assurer de leur fidélité. Le roi ayant, l'année suivante visité cette ville, Matthieu fut chargé de surveiller toutes les cérémonies relatives à la réception royale. Il se rendit par la suite à Paris, où la protection de Pierre Jeannin lui permit d'obtenir le titre d'historiographe. L'ouvrage, constitué de quatre livres comprend : Livre I, contenant " ce qui s'est passé depuis les premiers mouvemens de la L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Botero & Jan Matal & Lambert Andreas (c.1544-1617)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Later sheep, rebacked. Complete with the Lopes-Pigafetta map of Africa which overthrew the old Ptolemic idea of the the Mountains of the Moon being the source of the Nile with a vast central lake , and instead showed that the Nile flowed from a pair of lakes, one above the other on the same meridian. Although the work of Lopes and Pigafetta enjoyed considerable success in the short term, the enduring popularity of Ortelius' Atlas meant that the myth of a huge central lake was perpetuated by de Jode, Blaeu, de Wit, and others was perpetuated well into the eighteenth century. Lopez lived at Loanda from 1578 to 1587 before returning to Rome at the request of the King of Congo, Don Alvaro, in a vain attempt to interest Pope Sixtus V in the Congo. Pigafetta's compilation, derived from Lopez's notes, is largely devoted to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Second 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.

BINDINGS - VENETIAN). MARCOS DE LISBOA
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 an 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. Oth … [Click Below for Full Description]

GARNIER (Robert)
Lyon, Jean Pillehotte, 1597. 1 vol. petit in-12, vélin, titre calligraphié en rouge, noir et bleu au dos. Reliure de la fin du XIXe s. Bon exemplaire. 622 pp. mal chiffrées 620. Signatures : [A-Z]12 [Aa-Cc]12. Il manque le dernier feuillet blanc. Edition peu commune des huit tragédies de Robert Garnier. Robert Garnier (La Ferté Bernard 1544 - Le Mans 1590) est reconnu comme le plus grand auteur tragique de la Renaissance. On ne sait pas si ses tragédies furent réellement jouées en son temps, mais elles furent beaucoup lues et le théâtre classique du XVIIe s. lui fit de nombreux emprunts. Cette édition fut remise en vente en 1601 et 1602 à l'adresse de Cloquemin. Tchemerzine-Scheler III, 429c; Baudrier II, 348. Arbour, 2326; FVB, 22376.

JACQUES DE VITRY
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.

Schweinsleder über Holzdeckeln mit 1 (von 2) Metallschliessen, 3 (von 8) Eckbeschlägen und 2 Mittelstücken. VD16 B 2830. - Leemann-van Elck, Die zürcherische Buchillustrationen von den Anfängen bis um 1850, S. 83-86 und Leemann-van Elck, Die Bibelsammlung im Grossmünster zu Zürich, Nr. 23: Leemann-van Elck: ?Diese von dem Nachfolger Froschauers, Johannes Wolf, gedruckte Foliobibel verwertete im Neuen Testament, das 1596 erschien, erstmals die 1574 vorgenommene, vermehrte Angleichung an den Grundtext. Auch die übrigen Teile wurden durchgesehen. Wiederum griff man zu der gehaltvollen, eingehenden Vorrede Leo Juds. Das Vorwort des Buchdruckers ist von Johannes Wolf neu bearbeitet, Der schöne, barocke Titelrahmen blieb der alte, von Jost Amman gezeichnete, nur die Büchermarke in der untern Bordüre änderte man entsprechend ab. An die Stelle des bisherigen Kopfholzschnittes zur Genesis trat ein neuer, von dem talentierten Zürcher Maler Christoph Murer entworfener. Die Zeichnung trägt den Stempel des Barock, zeigt aber nicht nur stilistisch, sondern auch dogmatisch eine Umgestaltung. Die evangelische Glaubenslehre gestaltete sich aber zusehends strenger und zurückhaltender, so dass man nunmehr dazu gelangte, das Bildnis Gott-Vaters durchwegs auszumerzen. Bei dem neuen Schöpfungsgebilde erschien die Person Gottes daher nicht mehr in der Darstellung. Dafür steht nunmehr das hebräische Tetragramm Jahve (Jehova) in einer Wolke, im Strahlenglanz der Sonne, in dessen Lichtschein die … [Click Below for Full Description]
