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.

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.

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.

LOPES, Duarte; Philippo Pigafetta.
London Printed by Iohn Wolfe 1597 - first edition in English. Small 4to., Two title-pages: woodcut device on first title-page (McKerrow 269), and arms of the dedicatee, the Archbishop of Canterbury, on verso, fleuron 4v in the uncancelled state (reading line 2 up "glyketroteron"), second title-page with woodcut fleur-de-lys (McKerrow 258), woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces, three engraved folding maps (two by William Rogers, being a map of the Congo in the second state with the arms of the King of Alvarus and a coastal map of Africa), 10 full-page woodcuts (two repeats); lacking blank leaf 2*2 and initial blank A1, preliminary quire dust-soiled and browned along top margin, minor browning in quire K, repair short crease fold tear affecting the word "Capo." 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]

Aretino, Pietro.
"Bengodi" [i. e. London, John Windet f. John Wolfe], "21 October 1584" [but: c. 1597]. 8vo. 3 pts. in 1 vol. (12), 228, (8), 401, (1), 142 pp., final blank f. With woodcut in the text (pt. 3, p. 107). Wants the blanks at the beginning and end of pt. 2. 18th-century calf, covers ruled in gilt; title to prettily gilt spine; leading edges and inner dentelle gilt; marbled endpapers. All edges red. 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. Christie's Paris, 27. IV. 2006, lot 34 [Est. EUR 20,000-30,000], but unsold). - Both the first and second part consist of three 'giornate', whereas the third part bears the title: "Commento di Ser Agretso da Ficarvolo (= Annibale Caro), sopra la prima ficata del Padre Sicco (= F.M. Molza). Con la diceria de nasi". - Collected edition of the Dialogues of Pietro Aretino (1492-1556), famous Italian satirist and protégé of Giovanni de'Medici, whose licentious and burlesque works earned him … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aesopus
In Venegia: Appresso Gio. Battista, & Gio. Bernardo Sessa, 1597. Duodecimo. Two parts in one volume. 414, [xiv]pp. A12-S12 [S11-S12 blank]. Separate title-page to "Favole." Title and each page of text within border of type-ornaments. Vellum, repaired. Illustrated. This work was printed by a variety of printers using the same woodcuts and ornaments. Although a good number of editions were printed in the sixteenth century, most did not survive their use in schools. The Czech National Library identifies a copy at the "Library of the ASCR - Praha, " with the same date and pagination, but without a printer's name. The Italian National Union Catalogue does not locate a copy, but it is conceivable that the 'Biblioteca Comunale Lorenzo Leonj, in Todi may have a copy. .

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.

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.
