Er bezog 1506 die Universität zu Basel, gab sich hier besonders chemischen Studien hin, lebte längere Zeit bei dem als Alchemist bekannten TRITHEMIUS, machte dann grössere Reisen durch Europa, hielt sich an verschiedenen Universitäten Studien halber auf und genoss bereits um 1527 wegen seiner Kenntnisse einen solchen Ruf, dass er auf des bekannten Kirchenvaters, seines Landsmannes Oekolampadius Empfehlung als Nachfolger von COPUS 1527 zum Stadtarzt von Basel ernannt wurde.

Heidanus, Abraham,
Abraham Heidanus (Frankenthal 1597-Leiden 1678) minister and from 1648 professor in Leiden; moderate but convinced Certasian. In this book, which would be the reason of his discharge as professor, he opposes the '20 posities' imposed by the trustees of the University and the Burgomaster of Leiden on which it was forbidden to lecture. These forbidden positions included the works by Coccejus, Wittichius, Cartesius, Von Wolzogen: the last 'position' reads that philosophy is an explainer of the Word of God. Very rare.

Frontespizio architettonico inc. in rame con figure allegoriche ai margini e lo stemma di Vincenzo Gonzaga in alto, titolo in rosso e nero e con grande marca tipografica, 2 illustrazioni piccole e 22 a piena pagina inc. in legno n.t. che mostrano strumenti chirurgici e gli interventi descritti nel testo.

Prima edizione di questa fondamentale opera, la prima dedicata completamente alla chirurgia plastica. Il trattato dell'eminente chirurgo bolognese, allievo di Cardano e Aldrovandi, fu così apprezzato che lo stesso anno apparve a Venezia un'edizione pirata del Maietti, e l'anno dopo una non autorizzata a Francoforte. Tuttavia, la tecnica chirurgica per ricostruire nasi, orecchie e labbra di persone sfigurate da ferite o malattie veneree venne osteggiata dai medici del tempo, sia per il timore di complicazioni - la fase postoperatoria durava circa due mesi - che per l'avversione della chiesa, che la considerava un'ingerenza con l'opera di Dio, per cui la pratica cadde in disuso e solo agli inizi dell'Ottocento rinacque l'interesse per la chirurgia plastica.

DANFRIE, Philippe (1531-circa 1606)
Paris: P. Danfrie, 1597. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. 8vo in half-sheets (193 x 125 mm). Printed with Danfrie's second and fourth civilité types, 14 copper-engravings, 11 full-page, from 12 plates, four woodcut illustrations, 2 full-page. 17th-century panelled calf. Joints starting; some minor marginal dampstaining. Provenance: Jean Scheuez de Kembak (early owner's name on title); Prof. E. Andrade (pencil note); purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1967. FIRST EDITION OF DANFRIE'S SCIENTIFIC TREATISE ON THE GRAPHOMETER AND TRIGONOMETER, PRINTED BY THE AUTHOR AT HIS OWN PRESS IN HIS FAMOUS "CIVILITÉ" TYPES. Danfrie was a famous instrument maker, fine metal worker, and printer, who was appointed engraver at the Paris Mint in 1582. As an innovative printer he had been the first to cut a civilité font in Paris (1558), and for this book he created two new sets of civilité types. His was the second civilité fount, following Robert Granjon's, which was modeled on a different French hand. The civilité types used here "represent the native French handwriting at a stage of development later" than his and Granjon's types produced at mid-century. In this work Danfrie describes an instrument he invented for measuring angles, the graphometer, which became an essential tool for surveyors. The illustration of his own instruments and of their use which occur here were certainly prepared by him, and he may have engraved the plates himself. The privilege leaf (R4r) is in its first state, with lines 6, 9 and 10 ending "toutes di-", "pareil v", and "sans qu'au". Cart … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nardi Jacopo.
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.

Cornelis WYTFLIET
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.

STAPLETON, Thomas
Apud Haeredes Melchioris Sessae, Venetiis [i.e. Venice] 1597 - First part of two only. [26], 43-686 [i.e 680]pp. Contemporary limp vellum, title in manuscript to spine. Without cloth ties, recent paper label to upper board, some marking. Small marginal worm-trail to first half of text block, ink-stamp of Tullabeg Jesuit College to title, occasional light dust-soiling. Thomas Stapleton (1535-1598), theologian and controversialist. The circumstances of Stapleton's time led him to treat especially on the relation of the Pope to temporal power, a matter in which he ascribed more limited rights to the Pope than many Roman Catholic writers. Stapleton was one of the English authors on whose information Pius V relied upon when he issued his notorious bull against Elizabeth I. His Promptuarium was first printed in 1591, in two separate volumes; the first, Pars Aestivalis (i.e. Summer part) commenting on Gospel readings for the 24 Sundays after Pentecost, with the second, Pars Hyemalis (Winter Part), providing commentary on the remaining 28 Sundays.

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.

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.
