GESSNER, C.
Franckfurt am Meyn, Johann Saur, in Verlegung Robert Cambiers erben, 1598. Folio (360 x 232mm). Leaves (6), 202, title printed in red and black, with some 700 woodcuts in the text of which many full page. Recent old style calf, spine with gilt ornaments and lettering, blind tooled covers. Third German edition. The first German edition was printed by Froschower and appeared in 1563. For the German translations, the text was abbreviated, some new woodcuts were added. The fine woodcuts were cut after paintings by Lakas Schan, some of which survive as part of the Felix Platter collection in the Basle University Library. The various publications of Gessner, 'considered the basis of modern zoology' (Horblit. One Hundred books famous in science, 39), are the foremost purely zoological works of the Renaissance period. His most original contribution to science was his introduction of illustrations as an aid to the study of biology. The shells are incorporated in the present work and chapter XV concerns shells only, with many illustrations. As usual some occasional light browning. A good copy. Wellisch A 26.6; Nissen ZBI, 1555.

BAUHIN, J.
insectorum, quae in & circa hunc fontem reperiuntur. Montbéliard, (J. Foillet), 1598. 4 parts in one volume, 4to (197 x 150 mm). pp. (42), 291, (1 blank); pp. (8, last blank), 222, with large portrait of J. Bauhin on verso of title and 210 woodcut illustrations of fossils, fruit, insects, etc. Contemporary (or slightly later) vellum. A very rare, most probably early issue with the portrait of J. Bauhin on verso of the title. This beautiful renaissance portrait shows the author with a plant in his right hand and his left hand on a skull. This portrait is not mentioned in any of the bibliographies we consulted. The copies we have sold or seen in the past did not have the portrait either. The only copy to have the portrait was the copy of the Alfred Schmid (Bern) collection which was auctioned at Reiss & Auvermann in 1983. The portrait has the dates 1541 and 1597, the first date being the date of birth and the other one the date of the portrait. The present copy does not have the 'Paralipomena' a 4 leaves (of which the last leaf is blank) supplement on fungi, which is most likely never present in this early issue with the portrait. First edition of one of the first illustrated books on fossils and minerals, preceded only by Gesner's 'De rerum fossilium' (1565), and also containing an important early record of cultivated fruit, with a series of important fruit illustrations. The work is a study of the petrifying springs of Bad Boll near Groppingen, Württemberg. 'This was the most detailed work on the subject written in the sixteenth century, and contains a lengthy appendix that … [Click Below for Full Description]

The most influential estate management book of the Renaissance, Estienne's book was reprinted throughout the 17th century. Covering hunting, gardening, viticulture, cookery, landscape architecture, and a host of other topics, Estienne's treatise was central to the notion, look and functioning of the country estate as the middle class emerged during the French and English Renaissance.

Poggio [Bracciolini, Gian Francesco]
8°, 2 Bl., 258 S., 9 Bl. (Tavola). Hübsche Holzschnitt-Initialen, Späterer OPerg.-Bd. (18. Jht.) m. Rückenschild, Kleine Fehlstelle a. Deckel (minimaler Pergamentverlust). Innen teilweise min. stockfleckig, Seiten unterschiedlich gebräunt. 30 S. a. unteren Steg etwas wasserrändig. Insgesamt schönes Exemplar. (BMC Italian Books 124). Erste italienischsprachige Ausgabe dieser klassischen Geschichte der Stadt Florenz von 1350 bis 1455 (erschienen unter dem Titel "Historia Fiorentina" in Venedig 1476). - Gianfrancesco (oder Giovanni Francesco) Poggio Bracciolini (1380 - 1459) war einer der wichtigsten Humanisten der italienischen Renaissance. Er studierte in Florenz und ging um 1402 nach Rom, wo Papst Bonifatius IX. ihn zu einem seiner apostolischen Sekretäre machte, eine Position, die er unter den Päpsten Innozenz VII. (gestorben 1406), Gregor XII. (abgedankt 1415), Alexander V. (gestorben 1410) und dem Gegenpapst Johannes XXIII. (abgesetzt im Mai 1415) behielt. Die Absetzung des Letzteren und die Länge des Konzils von Konstanz (5. November 1414 bis 22. April 1418) gab ihm die Zeit, in den Bibliotheken und Klöstern Deutschlands und Frankreichs nach antiken Texten zu suchen, die den frühen Humanisten bekannt waren, aber in Italien nicht mehr existierten. Er entdeckte lange verschollene Texte von Cicero, Tacitus, Quintilian, Vegetius, Marcus Manilius, Ammianus Marcellinus, Vitruv, Statius und Petronius und spezialisierte sich darauf, Fragmente anhand des Schreibstils bestimmten Autoren zuzuordnen und so verlorene Werke zu rekonstruieren.

Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Warmholtz 3279 resp. 3362. Rudbeck 942. Carlander III, 564ff. "Ausa Caroli" är sannolikt utgiven i september 1598. Warmholtz menar att "boken är ganska sälsynt". Sturcius eller von Sturtz var enligt Warmholtz livländsk adelsman. Hösten 1598 beredde sig Sigismund för en väpnad aktion mot hertig Karl, och anlitade då professorn i Rostock Kristoffer Sturcius för att under medverkan av Erik Sparre skriva agitationsskriften "Ausa Caroli", som innehåller en vederläggning av hertig Karls försvar av Söderköpings riksdagsbeslut. "Conscientia Caroli" är en på tyska avfattad smädesskrift mot hertig Karl som av Warmholtz (3362) betecknas som "oändeligen sällsynt". Den bör ha kommit ut omkring 1602 eftersom den nämner polackernas erövring av Wolmar i … [Click Below for Full Description]

PAUL BRACHFELD (German, active late 1500)
Engraving on paper, 19,8x25,5cm + 2 lines of text Frankfurt/Main c. 1598 The illustrations on the map refer to the destruction of the Spanish Armada in 1588 (refer to our English Waghenaer chart of Europe, item 51), the defeat of the French "Ligue" in 1589 and the fight for freedom of the Dutch against the Catholic Church, the Jesuits and Spain (illustration in upper right corner). For the attribution to the workshop of Brachfeld, see "Cartographia Curiosa 2" by Stephanie Hoppen (England 1982) entry 4 illustrated. Mrs. Hoppens says here: "An extremely rare single-sheet printing or broadside. The engraver is not known by name but his work is easily recognizable by experts as an etcher who worked with Paul Brachfeld in Frankfurt. We have not managed to trace any other copy of this rare map nor any mention of it in the bibliographies.". She refers to and thanks Professor Dr. Stopp in Mainz for the information. Further there is by H.A.M. van der Heijden in "De oudste gedrukte kaarten van Europa" (1992) a listing of a Dutch version (map 46) from c. 1598. He says that the origin of this Dutch print is also unknown. About Brachfeld very little information is available but copies of the print are known to have been published in "Historicae Relationis Continuatio" presented for the Frankfurt autumn book fair in 1598.. In very good condition. It is lightly age-toned. The upper margin is wide, the other three cut until plate mark. A soft printer's crease. See information in the text

A copy text of the first English edition of Linschoten's classic, the most important description of the East Indies in the Age of Discovery, translated from the first Dutch edition of 1596. Linschoten travelled to Goa in 1583 as a clerk to the Portuguese Archbishop of Goa, and remained there for six years. While in India he also served the Archbishop of Goa. Returning to Holland in 1592, he prepared his notes for the Amsterdam publisher, Claeszoon, in response to interest in the Netherlands and other European countries about commercial possibilities in Asia. As trade in the Far East was dependent on routes via America or Africa, his work eventually encompassed the entire globe, including Spanish and Portuguese activities in America. Linschoten's ITINERARIO, VOYAGE, OFTE SCHIPVAERT soon was considered the single most significant source regarding the East and West Indies and numerous editions were published in Dutch, Latin, French, German, and English.

[Drake, Francis]: Passe, Crispin van de, the Elder:
[Cologne. 1598].. Engraved portrait, approximately 4 1/2 x 6 1/4 inches. An excellent, sharp, crisp impression. Fine. In a blue half morocco slipcase. This rare portrait of Drake by Crispin van de Passe comes from an early volume of engraved portraits, EFFIGIES REGUM AC PRINCIPUM, EORUM SCILLICET (Cologne, 1598). Drake, who circumnavigated the globe in 1577-80, appears under the title, "most noble English knight, very experienced in all things nautical and military." "The portrait of Drake is of especial interest: it is a close copy of the smaller Hondius Drake portrait which in its first state exists in only two copies (Royal Geographical Society, and Huntington Library). It depicts him in bust, with a shield, and with a two-hemisphere terrestrial map displaying the track of his circumnavigation" - Kraus. De Passe's stylized monograph appears near the bottom of the portrait. Epigrammatic verses in Latin by Matthias Quad appear beneath the portrait. KRAUS, DRAKE 59. SABIN 58995. GRAESSE V:154.

RUSCELLI, Girolamo.
Venice: , c 1598. Size: 220 x 315 mm. Copperplate engraving. Map has been professionally cleaned. Good condition. Latin text. Ruscelli was an editor in Venice, who translated Ptolemy's 'Geographia' in to Italian. Maps were based on Gastaldi's earlier works of 1548 and then published as 'La Geographia di Claudio Tolomeo...'. The atlas ran to a number of editions. This map is from one of the later editions, as it displays slight signs of plate wear. This is a fascinating early map of the Arabian Peninsula.

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). Provenance: early notes to the front free endpaper. 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.

LINSCHOTEN, Jan Huyghen
John Wolfe, [1598]., London, - Engraved map extending from the Horn of Africa to Sumatra by way of Arabia and the Indian sub-continent, backed with fine tissue, tear to left part of map skilfully repaired. Linschoten's work was a significant advance in the mapping of India and the Middle East. As noted by Tibbetts, 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. Linschoten's maps are styled after Portuguese portolan charts of the 16th century, upon which the map is based. Linschoten acquired most of the information for the map while serving as the secretary to the Portuguese archbishop in Goa, India from 1583 to 1589. Of particular value were the sailing guides he obtained that not only provided the best sailing routes to the East Indies and its lucrative spice trade but also showed the way from port to port once there. Upon his return to the Netherlands, Linschoten published these documents with accompanying maps and his own descriptions of the area in his monumental Itinerario. Few books have had greater influence on historical events. Tibbets 46.

Pigafetta, Filippo:
Francofurti [Frankfurt]: Excudebat Wolffgangus Richter, impensis Io. Theo. & Io. Israel. de Bry, 1598. Folio. pp. [viii], 60, [vi] index, [ii] blank; ff. [i] divisional title, 14, + two (of four) folding copper engraved maps. Engraved title page by Joannes Theodore de Bry followed by dedication to Friedrich IV, Elector Palatine of the Rhine, with his engraved coat of arms, and with 14 plates in the letterpress in the second part. Early twentieth-century olive morocco by W.Pratt, gilt, spine sunned, a.e.g. Book-label of American bibliophile John Jay Paul dated 1912. The text follows the account of Portuguese traveller Duarte Lopes, a merchant active in Kongo in the late 1570s and early 1580s, who was sent by Kongo’s Catholic King Álvaro I as an emissary to the Pope. In Rome he encountered Italian humanist Filippo Pigafetta who published Lopes’ narrative in 1591 under the title: ‘Relatione del reame di Congo et delle circonvicine contrade’, later translated into Latin by Casiodoro de Reina. The de Bry edition, the first volume in the series of ‘Petits Voyages’ published by the de Bry brothers following the death of their father, Theodore senior, usually contains two maps in four sheets. The sheets showing southern and eastern Africa, often joined, are present; the sheets depicting western Africa are not present in our example. The map is significant, rejecting Ptolemy’s twin lakes of Zaire and Zaflan and his snow-capped Mountains of the Moon as the source of the Nile.

Adrien de Montigny for the Album de Croy
“Zelucq & Hodicq” 1596-1598 Watercolor on vellum 26” x 21” framed In 1580, Charles de Croy married Marie de Brimeu, the widow of another nobleman who had domains in Artois and Picardy, as well as Orchimont and Agimont. In the same year his parents, Phillipe the third Duke of Croy, and Jeanne, dame des Comines and de Hallium, gave him the principality of Chimay and the princely title that went with it. Upon their deaths in 1595 and 1581 respectively, he inherited more titles and land, most of it in Flanders in present-day Belgium. By 1595, it had become clearer that the management of his vast holdings required a high degree of administrative organization, and towards this end Charles engaged his court painter, Adrien de Montigny, of Valenciennes, to paint careful studies of the many castles, towns and estates he ruled. These splendid watercolors were the fruit of this enormous undertaking, executed between 1596 and 1598. Charles separated from Marie in 1584 and she regained her lands in 1599. These works were executed at the pinnacle of Charles power in terms of wealth and land ownership. Despite the impetus for their creation having come from administrative needs, they are sumptuously rendered, pristine watercolors of outstanding esthetic quality, clearly intended from their inception to be works of art above and beyond their documentary function.

ORTELIUS, Abraham
Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1598. unbound. very good. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 13 1/2" x 19 1/2" This influential 1598 map by Abraham Ortelius is the first engraved exclusive map of the Pacific Ocean. Emphasizing the growing importance of the region in expanding colonial trade, the map presents the Pacific Ocean based on the works of Frans Hogenberg, Mercator's World map from 1569 as well as the manuscripts of Bartomeo de Lasso. Ortelius pays fitting tribute to the voyages of Ferdinand Magellan, who, on a mission to find a route to the 'Spice Islands', became the first European to cross the Pacific and discover what is now known as the Strait of Magellan. Several interesting features appearing in this map relate to this historic voyage.
