A nice copy with an interesting association. * Later edition. First published in 1579 Kitchin's work is an important source of information on local courts and government. By outlining the differences between the previously undivided court, Kitchin, along with Coke, helped lay the foundations of modern legal theory. "In fact Kitchin was doing on a small scale what Coke was doing on a grand scale. Both were representatives of that school of literate Elizabethan lawyers...whose great and enduring work was the adaptation of medieval law and institutions to modern needs. Imagination necessarily played some part in this process of adaptation; and thus they are responsible not only for the enunciation of the rules of modern law, but also for legal and historical theories, the soundness of which was considered by many generations of lawyers and historians to be as incontestable as their statements of law." This copy belonged to Thomas Parker [1666-1

Abraham Ortelius (Ortels, Orthellius, Wortels, * 2. April 1527 in Antwerpen; † 28. Juni 1598 ebenda) war ein flämischer Geograph und Kartograf. Er entstammt einer von Augsburg in die südlichen Niederlande eingewanderten Familie. Er studierte erst bei seinem Onkel Jakob van Meteren und dann auf eigene Initiative Griechisch, Latein und Mathematik in Antwerpen. Ortelius war zunächst Karten- und Buchhändler, bildete sich aber zum Kartografen weiter. Laut John Vermeulen hat Ortelius mit seinem Zeitgenossen Gerhard Mercator zusammen gearbeitet. Am 20. Mai 1570 erschien seine erste Ausgabe vom Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, der ersten Sammlung von Landkarten in Buchform. Atlanten trugen damals noch nicht diesen Namen. Diese Sammlung wurde zwischen 1570 und 1612 in 42 Ausgaben und in 7 Sprachen veröffentlicht: Latein, deutsch, flämisch, französisch, spanisch, englisch und italienisch. Anders als seine Berufskollegen referenzierte er klar die Quellen seiner Karten und Texten. Das Werk enthält unter anderem eine Abbildung der bis 1492 bekannten Welt und war damit bereits zum Zeitpunkt der Kartenerstellung rückblickend. Weiterhin häufiger referenziert wird eine Karte von Ortelius mit Europa, Mittelmeer, Nordafrika und Arabien im Fokus die aus dem Jahr 1601 (andere Schätzung: 1603 bis 1612) stammt. Sie trägt den Titel Geographia sacra (heilige Geografie) trägt und weiterhin eine verkleinerte, eingebettete Weltkarte enthält. Die Detail-Eintragungen wurden primär für die Levante und Mesopotamien vorgenommen, also mit den in der Bibel erwähnten Orten bis hin zum Versuch Orte aus der biblischen Paradiesbeschreibung zu fixieren. Allein schon die Darstellung der Flussläufe in Mesopotamien fällt dabei eher ungenau aus. Das Werk existiert in mehreren Versionen mit wechselnden Textfeldern und wurde oftmals coloriert.

"IOVIS AMMONIS ORACULUM" Plate size 364 x 464 mm., contemporary coloured, cracked on margins, the surface of the map is in good condition. Reference vdB, Nr. 222: "numerous classical authors, specificalli Archelaus, Diogenes, Laertius, Plinius, Ptolemy, Diodorus, Plutarchus and Livius. The inset shows the oracle of Jupiter Amman, supposedly situated in present day Libya, where Alexander went to ask what would be the result of his expedition. He also expressed the desire to be buried there, but was eventually buried in Alexandria in Egypt. Ortelius derives his information on the oracle from Lucretius, Solinias, Ovidius, Lucanus and many others. He complains that more attention is paid by classical authors to Alexanders personal habits than to the regions and territories he conquered." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Arnhem: Johan Jansonius, 1598. Oblong folio, woodcuts, 15 plates and maps; large map of Bali, woodcut of birds and 24 coastal profiles; some early underlinings in the text; contemporary vellum, slightly stained, an excellent copy. The first Dutch voyage to the East Indies: this is one of two original descriptions of the voyage that survive (the other is by Lodewyckszoon). Lach, who points out that "Firsthand reports of insular Southeast Asia arrived in the Netherlands with Cornelis de Houtman's fleet in August, 1597", also notes that Rouffaer and Ijzerman have conjectured that "the author or more likely authors [of this narrative] had apparently sailed on the "Hollandia"; one of them was possibly a midshipman named Pieter Stockmans...".This very rare and important book gives a day-by-day narrative of this highly significant adventure, the first of what was to be an almost endless series of voyages made by the Dutch in the most ambitious and successful of all colonial ventures. The history of the VOC and their trading from bases in the East Indies effectively begins here, with a speculative voyage commissioned by a group of nine major Amsterdam merchants in 1595-1597. "In 1598, the year after its return, no fewer than twenty-five ships were sent out by merchants of the provinces of Holland and Zeeland alone..." (Lach).The narrative, richly illustrated with maps, views and plates, includes the often lacking Appendix, a pictorial pilot with woodcuts illustrating the coasts of the Cape of Good Hope, the waters of S. Bras, the Capes of St. Just and Augusta, and parts of the coasts of Madagascar, Sumatra and Java, as well as a fine full-page engraved map of the island of Bali.This is the first edition in Latin and thus the first international edition; a Dutch-language edition appeared in the same year, while a different, shorter version in Dutch had appeared the year before (entitled Verhael vande reyse rather than Journael vande reyse, it evidently derived from the same original journal; it was known to Tiele at the end of the nineteenth century in a single copy, and Alden in turn could cite only the Nederlandsch Historisch Scheepvaart Museum copy in 1980). Three issues of this Latin version are known: this version for distribution by an Arnhem publisher, another with the Paris address of Adrianus Périer, and - most often seen - an issue with the Middleburg address of Bernardus Langenese. This excellent copy of the Arnhem issue in original binding has the ownership inscription of Caspar a Mekerad, dated 1600, on the title-page.

        Prima pars descriptionis itineris navalis in Indiam Orientalem

      Amsterdam: Cornelis Nicolaus, 1598. Quarto, folding engraved plate, engraved map on the title-page, 48 engraved maps and illustrations; several woodcut coastal profiles and charts in the text; neat library-stamps on title; an excellent copy in old boards, respined in calf. A. The first Dutch voyage to the East Indies: this is one of two original descriptions of the voyage that survive (the other is attributed to Pieter Stockmans and others). This narrative is based on the original journal of Lodewyckszoon, one of the officers of the fleet, who sailed aboard the Mauritius - and so differs substantially from the other account.Houtman's voyage was the very first trading fleet sent by the Dutch to the East Indies: four ships were sent out in 1595 under the command of Cornelis de Houtman and Pieter Dirckz, three of which returned to the Netherlands in 1597. Their venture prompted the departure of several further fleets, culminating in the establishment of the VOC in 1602.The most significant geographical achievement of Houtman's voyage was that by sailing round Java it proved that it could not be part of the supposed southland (see Schilder, Australia Unveiled, ch. VI). The map on the title-page of this account shows the oceans and coasts navigated between Europe and the East Indies, including the promontory of a southern continent, with the names "Beach", "Lucach" and "Maletur", in close proximity to an island, "Java Minor".Lach points out that the book "contains the first continuous account of Bali in any European language, Its prosperity is described in... great detail...". The long and detailed description of Java is probably derived from Portuguese accounts, and "contains information about Portuguese trade and forts in the Moluccas where De Houtman's ships did not visit. Perhaps it came from Pedro de Tayde, the Malaccan-born Portuguese pilot who was so helpful to De Houtman's men in Bantam. In any case, it has not been found in any of the printed Portuguese sources".This is the first edition in Latin of this narrative: editions in Dutch and French were also published in Amsterdam in the same year. The engraved maps and illustrations are common to all three editions and are listed by Tiele (pp. 125-7), who notes that the folding plate of the bazaar at Bantam (present in this copy) is nearly always lacking.

        Manuscript collection of 29 decrees concerning the treatment of Indians on encomiendas

      1598 - Treatment of South American Indians in the Century of Discovery, an exceptional Decree evidencing the interest in the welfare of the native population. 1598. Asuncion [Paraguay]. In folio (size varies somewhat). 7 ff. (15 written sides) in Spanish cursive, signed by Hernandarias and others on final leaf; offered with 7 ff. (13 sides) of additional MS material bound before and after the decrees. Unbound. Exceptional 16th century manuscript written in Paraguay, including a collection of 29 decrees on the treatment of Indians under the encomienda system, promulgated during the earliest years of Hernandarias’s first tenure as Governor of Rio de la Plata province (Asuncion and Buenos Aires). Common to many 16th century Spanish colonies, the encomienda system effectively forced the indigenous inhabitants into slave labor in exchange for the salvation of their souls. The present decrees are important evidence of an interest in the welfare of the Indians prior to Hernandarias’ outright abolition of the entire encomienda system in 1603. “The feathered and painted beings the Spaniards encountered in America confounded the entire Spanish nation, from King to commoner. Who was the Indian? Was he man or beast? Was he a rational being? Could his land be expropriated? Could he be made to work and pay tribute? If he were mere beast, why should he not be enslaved? What type of religious instruction should he be given? Should the converted Indian be tithed? Could he be left to live alone, caring for his own needs, even governing himself as the Spaniards did? Today such questions seem shocking. But in the sixteenth century they were the order of the day” (Maria Paz Haro) Hernandarias’ proclamations of 1598-9 show a significant advance in attitudes towards these questions. The first few ordinances describe the burden placed on His Majesty’s Royal Conscience regarding the spiritual salvation of his native subjects, and regulate the effective teaching of the Christian religion to Indians (particularly singling out children for instruction). Regulations 5,6, and 8 forbid the forced transfer of Indians from one encomienda to another without permission from the governor; regulations 10, 11, and 12 ban general mistreatment of Indians, interfering with their fishing and hunting, and breaking up their families. At the same time, other ordinances – eg 18 – restrict the right of the Indian himself to migrate or travel freely. According to #25, Indians are obliged to provide food and shelter to any passing Spaniards for three days, but need not provide them with chickens or pigs, even if they have them to hand. The travelers must pay for any further hospitality required after those three days. In most cases, specific fines and prison sentences are set forth to punish disobedience – with all proceeds going to the Crown, of course, rather than the Indian victim. Key to Hernandarias’ legacy is his celebrated abolition of the punitive encomienda system beginning in 1603, which is often viewed as an enlightened response to his own upbringing as a criollo. Yet a recent review of native rights under colonial rule (Vaquero, 1993) suggests that Hernandarias’ eventual support for the abolition was very much an about-face, at odds with his earlier stance as a ruthless administrator: “Hernandarias was radically opposed to both the suppression of personal service and a tax [rather than forced labor] on the Indians on his lands. As his reputation was very great in Paraguayan society, his opposing position hindered, at first, the implementation of the Ordenances [abolishing encomiendas]. But his close relationship with the Jesuits, his frequent dealings with them, his friendship with Diego de Torres and his spirit of resilience and Christian sensibilities, made him reconsider his position so far to become an apostle of the new ideas and even renounce the lavish encomienda he held in Paraguay.” (Vaquero, trans., p. 160). The present document, then, provides evi

Notre exemplaire comporte sur son feuillet blanc liminaire la notice biographique suivante (rédigée à la plume) : "Thyrée (Pierre), jésuite allemand, né à Nuys dans l'Archevêché de Cologne en l'année 1546 ; frère puisné de Hermann Thyrée, jésuite comme lui et né dans la même ville. Il se distingua en qualité de professeur et de prédicateur. Il remplit pendant 27 ans consécutifs ces deux emplois, avec autant de succès que de zèle à Trèves, Mayence et Wurtzbourg." Ajoutons que le Dictionnaire de Biographie Chrétienne et Anti - Chrétienne de François Pérennès (Migne, 1851, tome III, colonnes 1331 - 1332) dénombre 22 ouvrages de ce savant confesseur, invoquant en cela l'autorité du jésuite Philippe Alegambe qui en avait dressé la liste. Enfin, J. de Blic dans la très courte notice qu'il consacre au Père Thyrée dans le Dictionnaire de Théologie Catholique de VACANT et MANGENOT (Paris, Letouzey et Ané, 1946, tome XV, colonne 1026) dit de son oeuvre "qu'elle révèle un attrait particulier pour l'étude du merveilleux."

Sein Vater, ein lebensfroher Mann, der sein Vermögen nicht schonte, ließ ihm eine gute Ausbildung zuteil werden, zunächst in Brüssel und Ath, seit 1559 bei den Jesuiten in Köln. Doch als der Vater erfuhr, daß der Sohn Jesuit werden wollte, schickte er ihn an die Univ. Löwen zum Studium der Rechtswissenschaft. Aber L.s ganze Leidenschaft gehörte dem Studium der Humaniora; Löwen war damals der Mittelpunkt der späthumanistischen niederländ. Philologie. Nach dem Tode des|Vaters gewann L. durch die Widmung seines philologisch-kritischen Erstlingswerkes "Variarum Lectionum libri III" an Kardinal Granvelle dessen mäzenatische Gunst. Granvelle nahm ihn als lat. Sekretär zu sich nach Rom, wo er ihn in den röm. Humanistenkreis (u. a. Paulus Manutius, Antonius Moretus) einführte. Während des zweijährigen Aufenthaltes studierte L., u. a. in der Vatikanischen Bibliothek, antike lat. Handschriften und verschaffte sich umfangreiche topographische und antiquarische Kenntnisse. 1570 kehrte L. nach Löwen zurück, um nach einem in Saus und Braus vergeudeten Jahr zu einer Reise nach Deutschland aufzubrechen, die ihn zuerst nach Dole und Wien (Begegnung mit den Humanisten um Kaiser Maximilian II.), dann nach Böhmen, Sachsen (Meißen) und Thüringen führte und schließlich 1572 mit der Annahme eines Lehrstuhls für Geschichte und Beredsamkeit an der luth. Univ. Jena endete. Was den 25jährigen eben zu der Zeit, als der Bürgerkrieg in den Niederlanden aufflammte und span. Truppen einen Teil seiner Besitzungen zerstörten, zur Annahme dieses ehrenden Angebotes und damit de facto zum Konfessionswechsel veranlaßte, wissen wir nicht. Auch die Motive schon nach 1½ Jahren Jena wieder zu verlassen, sind unbekannt. Immerhin fällt auf, daß L. sich nach Köln, wo er einst bei den Jesuiten in die Schule gegangen war, begab, dort de...

        Discours of voyages into ye Easte & West Indies.

      London, [printed by John Windet] for John Wolfe, [1598].. 4 parts in 1 volume. Small 2o (28 x 18 cm). With engraved title-page, 9 engraved folding maps (including a detailed map depicting Arabia, Persia and India) and 3 engraved folding views. All newly engraved after the Dutch edition. Further with 4 woodcut maps in text and engraved maps on the 3 part-titles. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum, later spine-label and ties; recased, with modern endpapers. Kept in modern slipcase.. First edition of the English translation of Linschoten's highly important work, opening the East for trade by the Dutch and the English. Until its publication no other book contained any comparable amount of useful information on the East and West Indies and it soon became required reading for all navigators sailing to the East. With chapters on the coast of "Arabia Felix" (that is, the southern coast of the Arabian peninsula), the island of Ormus and Islamic India. Also with a detailed map depicting Arabia, Persia and India by Langren. The interior has been taken from Gastaldi via Mercator's world map of 1569, but has been given interesting improvements: "The surprising fact about the representation of the [Arabian] peninsula is the close resemblance of the outline to that of a modern map when compared with other engraved maps of the time. There is a vague suggestion of the Qatar peninsula, which is not seen again until the nineteenth century" (Tibbets). - The book is divided into four parts. The first treats the East Indies, including eastern Africa and Arabia and extending to regions as far east as Japan. The second book describes the navigation of the coasts of West Africa around the Cape of Good Hope to Arabia, together with the coasts of the New World. Book three, based on the discoveries of the Portuguese Royal pilot Diego Affonso, contains sailing directions from Portugal to India, and instructions for sailing in the East Indies, from island to island. Similar instructions are given for the New World, particularly Brazil and Spanish America. Book four contains detailed information on the taxes and other income that the King of Spain extracted from his territories, both at home and overseas. - With the maps and plates trimmed closely to the edges and only one unobtrusively restored tear. A very good copy, with only a few occasional spots. Binding recased but also in very good condition. - Alden/Landis 598/57. Borba de Moraes, p. 488. Sabin 41374. Cf. Nave, Philologia Arabica 22. For the map of Arabia, Persia and India: Tibbets 46 & p. 23.

      1598. |~|WEIRD AND EXTRAVAGANT AND BIZARRE DIETTERLIN, Wendel. Architectura von Ausstheiling, Symmetria und Proportion der Fünff Seülen. Five parts in one, continuously foliated (partly in ms.), 210, [1] ff. Five etched and engraved titles (the same plate with re-engraved lettering used for the titles to parts II and IV, a different plate used for the titles to parts III and V), ten text leaves (including colophon leaf), of which one with a half-page etching, and 196 full-page etched plates, of which plates 196-197, 202-203, and 204-205 attached and fold-out (the fold-out portions cropped to platemarks), the foliation including a duplicate copy of plate 158. Most of the plates with engraved foliation, some revised in ink, and some revised in the plate; first few leaves with contemporary ms. foliation, 57 plates supplied from a different copy (of the second issue), cropped to platemark and mounted; colophon (also from second issue) cut round and mounted. Folio, 331 x 220 mm, bound by the "Elte Bindery" in early eighteenth-century Dutch mottled calf gilt, sides with center- and cornerpiece design with foliate roll border incorporating a parrot, slightly narrower inner roll with arabesque tools at corners, centerpiece lozenge built up from drawer-handle and other tools, spine gilt in compartments with red morocco lettering-piece, and mottled edges. Nuremberg: Balthazar Caymox, 1598. First Collected and Enlarged Edition of one of the most astounding architectural books ever produced, a masterpiece of draftsmanship intermixed with bizarre and extravagant fantasy. In this imaginative version of the traditional "column book," the Strassburg painter and decorator Wendel Dietterlin (1550-1599) provided a rich source of models for architects, designers, painters, sculptors, and cabinetmakers. Dietterlin's work was instrumental in disseminating Renaissance decorative and architectural forms in Germany. Depicted are columns, pediments, chimneys, fountains, altarpieces, picture and window frames, doorways, gateways, extraordinary aperçus through giant keyholes, etc., many with human figures, all in an inexhaustibly imaginative Mannerist style, and most incorporating a fantastical element, whether of detail or overall perspective. Some of the plates, with their plunging views and simultaneous perspectives, prefigure the "impossible realities" of the twentieth-century Dutch artist M. C. Escher. Dietterlin's Architectura has retained its international vogue as a model book that mixes bizarre animals and plant forms with architectural ornament which is then incorporated into the classical architectural Orders, i.e. Tuscan, Dorian, Ionian, Corinthian, and Composite. Dietterlin "conceives the column orders as little more than thematic categories or divisions into which fall a range of original decorative forms… Each book begins with plates relating the order's basic geometry or proportions, before passing to its decorative appurtenances with a lively if not sometimes nightmarish sensitivity. Terror and dementia are sometimes the impressions evoked by these images, as Dietterlin combines architectonic, human and animal forms with a pre-Piranesian sense of fantasy and humor that is unparalleled within the architectural literature of this time..." (Harry Francis Malgrave, Introduction, in Millard, Northern European, pp. 25-28). The bibliography of Dietterlin editions is famously complicated. The first two books were published in 1593 and 1594 in German and Latin. This first complete edition was published the same year with the text in Latin, and in Latin and French. At least two different issues of the German edition are recorded, as well as variant states of individual plates (cf. Fairfax Murray catalogue and Fowler). In comparing impressions of the present second issue copy to a privately owned copy of the first issue, we discovered precisely the same light impressions to several of the delicate engravings. This is a composite copy, assembled in the early eighteenth century by a Dutch owner from two separate copies, one of the first issue and one of the second issue: thus the preliminary material includes the general title from the first issue, followed by both the dedication leaf, to Daniel Soriau, from the second issue (which replaced the portrait), and the preface "to the reader" from the first issue; the colophon, cut round and mounted at end, is also from the second issue. This copy was bound by the so-called "Elte Bindery," active in Amsterdam from 1697 to 1722 (so named after a copy of a four-volume work, bound similarly to the present copy, which was acquired in 1983 by the National Library in the Hague from the bookseller Meijer Elte): cf. Jan Storm van Leuuwen, Dutch Decorated Bookbinding in the Eighteenth Century (2006), I: 287. Complete copies of any editions of Dietterlin's work are notoriously rare, and the fact that an owner of the early eighteenth century was obliged to make up a copy from two imperfect or damaged copies, which he then had elegantly bound by a foremost Amsterdam binder, testifies to its rarity - and desirability - two centuries after publication. Second dedication leaf extended at fore-edge; some discreet restoration to binding at joints. PROVENANCE: Effaced inscription at head of title.

        Geografia cioe Descrittione Universale della terra.

      Venice: Gio.Battista & Giorgio Galignani Fratelli, 1598 - 1597. - 2 parts in one volume. 4to., bound in 6s (12 x 8 4/8 inches). Two vignette title-pages. One full-page engraved double-hemisphere map of the world "Orbis Terrae Compendiosa Descriptio" by Girolamo Porro after Rumold Mercator to D1v, and 63 fine engraved half-page vignette maps, numerous woodcut diagrams and vignettes in text including two of the armillary sphere and woodcut initials. Contemporary limp vellum (torn without loss at the head of the spine). First edition in Italian, edited and corrected by Giovanni Antonio Magini and translated from his Latin edition of 1596, also printed in Venice, into Italian by Leonardo Cernoti. All the maps, 27 of the ancient world, and 36 of the modern world were first published in Magini's earlier Latin edition, except for Girolamo Porro's four small format world maps based on Valgrisi's 1561 edition. The double-hemisphere world map "Orbis Terrae Compendiosa Descriptio" is a reduction of Rumold Mercator's world map, and is described by Shirley as 'an exceptionally fine engraving in its own right'. The other three are after Mercator and Ortelius, each and the map of America in chapter XXXIIII (18 pges), show Chili with a distinctive bulge. Ptolemy's Geography, arguably the most influential cartographic account of the ancient world, was the point of reference for all Renaissance mapmakers. His compilation of what was known about the world's geography in the Roman Empire during his time (ca 90-168 ad). He relied on the work of others, in particular an early geographer, Marinos of Tyre, and on gazetteers of the Roman and ancient Persian Empire. He was a Roman citizen of Egypt who wrote in Greek. He was a mathematician, astronomer, geographer, astrologer, and poet (of a single epigram in the Greek Anthology). He lived in Egypt under Roman rule, and is believed to have been born in the town of Ptolemais Hermiou in the Thebaid. He died in Alexandria. The earliest known manuscripts of Ptolomy's "Geographia" date to about 1300. The first printed version was published in 1477, then 1488, and in Ulm in 1482. The present edition, published at the end of the 16th century, reflects the most important discoveries of that era. Sabin 66506; Phillips, Atlases, 405; Adams M-118; Shirley 193-96 and page XXIX.

        The history of the reign of Philip the Third, King of Spain

      Contemporary calf, rebacked; an excellent copy with the bookplate of the Franciscan Capuchin Library, Church Street, Dublin, on the paste - down. First Dublin edition, printed the same year as the first London edition. Divided into six books, the first deals with the life of Philip, with the remainder describing the various wars and the political state of Spain, its allies and enemies, during Philip?s reign, from 1598 - 1621. A significant focus of the history recounts Spain?s internal politics, including the expulsion of the Moriscos. A detailed and fascinating chronological work encompassing both the rise of the Spanish empire as well as the decline of its economy, all thoroughly tied to the nature and outlook of Philip and his counselors. Watson (1730 - 1781) was a philosopher and church minister; the book was completed after Watson?s death by William Thomson (1746 - 1817), a disgraced Scottish minister and librarian to the eighth earl of Kinnoull.

Expanding this theory to plants, he maintained that the external form of plants reveals their internal healing powers. The plants that resemble particular parts of the body should be considered as suitable medication for illnesses in those particular body parts. "The back view of a human head with a thick crop of hair is introduced into the block with the Maidenhair Fern, which is an ancient specific for baldness; a Pomegranate with its seeds exposed, and a plant of "Toothwort," with its hard, white scale-leaves, are represented in the same figure as a set of human teeth" (Arber, p. 209). Porta also discusses the resemblance of plants and animal parts. A study of the character of the animal would provide clues to the medical qualities of the resembling plant. Phytognomonica was first published in Naples in 1588.In very good condition.

Basel: Sebastian Henric-Petri, 1598. Folio (13 7/8 x 8 7/8 inches; 352 x 222 mm.). Woodcut title printed in red and black, with an oval portrait of Sebastian Münster within an engraved cartouche. 26 double-page woodcut maps including two world maps, 67 double-page town plans and views, many within ornamental woodcut borders, 2 folding panoramas of Heidelberg and Vienna, the latter dated 1548, approximately 1250 woodcuts in the text (including repeats), woodcut head-pieces and printer's device at end. large gothic initials. 14 ll, 1461, [1, blank], Colophon [1], Printers woodblock [1] pp.Contemporary German decoratively blind-stamped pigskin over beveled wooden boards. Spine with five raised bands, lettered in black ink in a contemporary hand. Covers with some inevitable staining, original clasps missing, but otherwise in remarkably fine condition. There are a few small marginal stains in the text but overall this is one of the cleanest copies that we have seen.Second edition with the renewed stock of woodcut maps. In the 1580s Sebastian Henric petri, the son of Münster's son-in-law and first printer, Heinrich Petri, was obliged to invest in commissioning a new series of woodblocks of the maps and views illustrating Münster's ever-popular survey and chronicle of the world. These appeared in the 1588 and succeeding editions. Although most differ little from their models, those showing the New World had to be drastically revised: the modern world map and the map of the Americas (Burden 58), both copied after Ortelius' 1570 maps by an unknown engraver, give a far more accurate though still not up-do-date depiction of the Americas than the primitive maps used in the 1544-1578 editions. Münster?'s Cosmographia also contained accounts of monstrous creatures living in the seas off uncharted lands. Tall tales of sea serpents and weird beasts were very popular with European society, most of whom would not have traveled outside of their home country. Some of the more outlandish creatures from travelers?' accounts have been depicted here, violently attacking either each other or ships of hapless sailors.The Cosmographia by Sebastian Münster (1488 ?- 1552) from 1544 is the earliest German description of the world.The Cosmographia had numerous editions in different languages including Latin French (translated by Francois de Belleforest, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 35 editions in 85 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts(some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Manuel Rudolph Deutsch and David Kendel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe.The 1550, 1552, 1554 and 1559 Basel editions contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias.Alden & Landis 598/73; Burmeister 83; Sabin 51395.

      Testo latino. Cm.17,3x10,2. Pg.(16), 574, (30). Unito, con frontespizio e numerazione autonomi, stesso editore e stesso anno, "Francisci Iureti ad Symmachum Notae", pg.(8), 184, (18). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con unghie e titoli manoscritti al dorso. Marca tipografica al frontespizio. Testatine e finalini calcografici. Minime chiose manoscritte d'epoca. Doppio ex libris applicato al foglio di guardia. Quinto Aurelio Simmaco (Roma, 340 circa ? 402 circa), appartenente ad una ricca famiglia, fu senatore, oratore e scrittore al declinare dell'Impero Romano. Sostenitore del paganesimo, ebbe una celebre diatriba con i Cristiani, segnatamente con il vescovo di Milano Ambrogio. Di lui rimane questo corposo epistolario, di grande interesse, composto da dieci libri, il primo con lettere ufficiali e gli altri nove con lettere private. L'edizione è a cura del giureconsulto Jacques Lectius (1558 - 1611), che fu a più riprese primo cittadino di Ginevra, mentre le "Note" all'Epistolario di Simmaco si devono al vescovo di Langres François Juret (1553 - 1626), traduttore anche di Seneca.
