      Trois Dialogues de l' Exercice de Sauter, et Voltiger en l' Air. Avec les figures qui seruent à la parfaicte demostration et intelligence dudict Art. Par le Sr. Arghange, Tuccaro,de l' Abruzzo, au Royaume de Naples. Dedie' au Roy. Paris, chez Claude de Monstr'oeil, en la Cour du Palais, au Nom de Iesus,1599. In-4°, pergamena coeva, con titolo in oro in tassello sul dorso, taglio dorato. 1 f. b., 4 ff. (=8 pp.), 197 ff. (=394 pp.), 1 f. b. con diversi errori di numerazione manca la tavola segn. OO che si trova soltanto in pochissimi esemplari; essa è fornita separatamente in fotocopia. L' opera è illustrata da 87 figure incise il legno a piena o mezza pagina raffiguranti salti o volteggi circensi. Esemplare ben conservato della rarissima edizione originale del più antico trattato di acrobazia e di uno dei più bei libri illustrati francesi del tempo. Brunet, V, 972-73: Ouvrage assez rare. Toole Statt, Circus and alliend arts, II, 1693: An early technical work on aerobatics, with accompanging wood engravings. Of this work Pierre Bost writes: Ces trois dialogues sont accompagnés d' images très précises, comme géométriques... Arcangelo Tuccaro, nato a L' Aquila, visse a Parigi presso la corte di Carlo IX, come insegnante di ginnastica. Il Re lo considerò il re dei volteggiatori.Col consolidarsi nel periodo del Rinascimento di una nuova educazione fisica programmatica e cosciente, anche per gli acrobati o saltimbanchi tornò un periodo di dignità. E tra i molti, in quell'Europa italianizzata, primeggiarono gli italiani. Merita un particolare accenno tra questi, Arcangelo Tuccaro,il saltimbanco abruzzese favorito dei Re di Francia Carlo IX ed Enrico IV. Scrisse costui in un libro stranissimo che sul finire del 1500 ebbe un successo ragguardevole, tre dialoghi sull'esercizio del saltare e del volteggiare nell'aria, nei quali seppe esprimersi con talento e con lirismo, riconosciuto ed apprezzato dagli stessi eruditi francesi. Facendo parlare uno dei suoi assistenti, Arcangelo Tuccaro dice di se stesso: sta in palestra innalzando la architettura di uno di quei suoi salti ammirevoli da lui inventati. Mai prima di questo italiano, né dopo, si descrisse con più evidenza e verità la bellezza del salto: una architettura! Si tratta invero di una architettura fatta di movimenti e di slanci, che portano ad un vertice di levità, di grazia e di potenza, la pesante soma del corpo; e per un attimo illudono l'uomo".

        Ioannis Meursii Criticus Arnobianus tributus in libros septem. Item Hypocriticus Minutianus, & Excerpta MS. Regii Parisiensis. Editio altera, & melior.

      Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex officina Ludovici Elzevirii, 1599. 8vo. (XX),167,(23)(1 blank) Vellum 16 cm (Ref: Dibdin 1,215: 'an indispensable work to peruse, for those who are curious in the learning of the author'; Willems 44; Rahir 26; Berghman 1283; Schoenemann 1,166/67) (Details: 5 thongs laced through both joints; colophon at the end: 'Lugduni Batavorum, Excudebat Ioannes Balduini. Anno 1599, mense Julio') (Condition: Short title in ink on the back; vellum somewhat soiled; 2 hardly noticable pinpoint wormholes in the first 6 leaves; some foxing; name on front flyleaf erased, leaving a small hole) (Note: Arnobius, a teacher of rhetoric at Sicca Veneria in Numidia 'was suddenly converted to Christianity (ca. A.D. 295) and a year or 2 later, at the instance of his bishop, wrote seven books 'Adversus Nationes', Against the Pagans. His work throws light on the Christian-pagan debate immediately before the Great Persecution, while the venom of his attack on traditional Roman paganism shows that this was by no means dead'. (OCD 2nd edition p. 122) His style is easy-flowing. Arnobius makes little use of the New, and none of the Old Testament. His view of God is platonic. The unintended side effect of the efforts Arnobius and other Church Fathers to ridicule or crush paganism, was that their writings form an archive which preserves knowledge and practices of polytheism in the years of its decline in late antiquity. Just as the early christians bolstered their piety by contrasting it with the demonic foulness of pagan religion, so the protestants of the 16th century used their knowledge of pagan idolatry to scourge their catholic adversaries. Critics of Catholicism, like Calvin, compared catholic mass e.g. with the bloody rituals of the pagans, and used the sacrifices of the ancients to score theological points against their opponents. 'Protestants detected in the Catholic cult of images, the pagan idols so well described by late antique critics like Arnobius'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 678, s.v. Paganism) The work of Arnobius was first published in Rome in1542 (although the preface is dated 1543), containing as Book Eight the 'Octavius' of Minucius Felix. Other editions followed in 1546, 1560, 1580, 1582, 1583 & 1586. Joannes Meursius, or in Dutch 'Jan de Meurs', 1579-1639, was only 19 years old when he published the first edition of this celebrated 'Criticus Arnobianus' in Leyden in 1598. He studied under the genius J.J. Scaliger, who helped him to publish it. It was a work of philology and not of theology, and it enjoyed a mixed reception. Schoeneman observes that the book showed indeed the 'acumen' of the author's genius, but that it is more on others classical authors than on Arnobius and Minucius Felix. Meursius offers for the greater part animadversions, critical notes, conjectures and emendations. He did not consult manuscripts, but used his 'ingenium'. The next year, 1599, Elsevier published this second improved edition of the 'Criticus Arnobianus'. It was not 'augmented', as is usual with second editions, on the contrary, Meursius wisely cut a number of his rasher suggestions. In 1610 Meursius became professor of Greek at his own university. There, in Leyden, he produced the 'editiones principes' of a number of Byzantine authors, the 'editio princeps' of the 'Elementa Harmonica' of Aristoxenus (1616), and edited the 'Timaeus' of Plato with the commentary and translation of Chalcidius (1617). He wrote much on the antiquities of Athens and Attica. (J.E. Sandys, 'A history of classical scholarship', 1964, p. 311)) (Provenance: On the front pastedown in pencil the name of 'J.A.

        Navigatio ac itinerarium Johannis Hugonis Linscotani in orientalem sive Lusitanorum Indiam.

      Hagae-Comitis: Alberti Henrici, 1599. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio [30.2 x 19.7 cm]. 2 parts 1, (4) ff. (including an engraving on the title page, a full-page author portrait, and a full-page engraving of the arms of the Landgrave of Hesse, the work's dedicatee), 124 pp., 45 pp. (with an engraving on the title of part 2), (3) pp., with (36) engraved plates (all double-page or folding) and (7) folding engraved maps, woodcut initials. Bound in early speckled calf rebacked using original gold-tooled spine in seven compartments, original gilt title label laid to spine, blind-ruled borders to covers, red sprinkled edges. Minor rubbing to spine, boards and board edges. Ownership inscriptions of the front fly leaf and title page, unidentified armorial book label on verso of title, restored corner loss of first two leaves, full-page armorial plate backed with old paper and misbound as third leaf, minor old repairs to the folds of the Plancius world map, Spice Islands map remargined with some expert restoration to parts of decorative border, restoration to fold of Goa street scene engraving (at p. 30), some creasing and tender folds to Goa plan (p. 34), a few other plates reinforced on verso at an early time, ink stain added to preserve the modesty of a woman of Goa (p. 51), minor damp-staining to a few of the plates, toning to some others, an occasional stain or marginal annotation in the text. Barentsz' polar map and Plancius world map both excellent dark impressions on thick paper. Rare 1599 first Latin edition of the explorer, merchant, and historian Jan Huygen van Linschoten's (1553-1611) famous travel book, an account rich in information concerning the Dutch expansion in the East Indies and here richly illustrated with the same 36 engraved plates and 6 engraved maps of the Dutch first edition (1596), plus the celebrated - and often missing - first edition of Willem Barentsz's (1550-97) iconic polar map. "This edition of Linschoten is the only one in which Barentsz's famous map of the North Polar Regions appears. For some reason or other, possibly on account of the size and thick paper on which it was engraved, this map of Barentsz is nearly always lacking in otherwise perfect copies of this work" (Humphreys, p. ix). The map is considered the "first contribution of the Dutch cartography related to the Arctic Seas" (Jourdin and La Roncière, p. 32) and here illustrates a unique digest - not found outside this edition of Linschoten - of Gerrit de Veer's diary concerning Barentsz's three arctic journeys, a digest likely compiled and translated from the Dutch by Linschoten himself (See, Beke & Koolemans, p. clxix) who accompanied Barentsz on two of his Arctic voyages. The Barentsz map is the first of the Arctic based upon first-hand exploration, and which dispenses with the mythological arctic islands of Mercator. Barentsz sailed further north towards the arctic pole than any previous explorer. He was responsible for the discovery of Spitsbergen, and for much of Nova Zembla. The Barents Sea is named in his honor. This map was the finest and most accurate of the polar region that had appeared to date. It shows the track of Barentsz's third voyage, and the magnetic pole 75 degrees north. It was not surpassed in much of its detail for many decades, and would be copied by the firm of Hondius as late as circa 1660 (see Humphreys). It is thought that Barentsz drew this map while stranded in his winter quarters on Nova Zembla and that after his death it was brought home by commander Jacob van Heemskerk (1567-1607) to be published in 1598 by Cornelius Claeszoon (Beke & Koolemans, p. 290).

        The Principal Navigations, Voyages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation,

      London: George Bishop, Ralph Newberie and Robert Barker,, 1599?99?1600. made by sea or overland, to the remote and farthest distant quarters of the Earth, at any time within the compasses of these 1600 yeres: Divided into three several volumes, according to the positions of the regions, whereunto the were directed. 3 volumes, folio in sixes (volumes 1 and 2, 275 x 178 mm; volume 3 slightly taller, 278 x 180 mm). Volumes 1 and 2 in 18th-century marbled calf, neatly rebacked, twin morocco labels, leaf-form gilt border to sides, yellow edges, marbled endpapers; volume 3 recently rebound to style, red speckled edges, marbled endpapers. Text mainly in gothic letter. Woodcut vignettes to title pages, similar head- and tailpieces and figurative initials throughout the text. Vols. 1 and 2 tips lightly bumped, board-edges subtly refurbished, variable light browning, a few trivial marks, mainly in the margins. Vol. 1: title slightly marked, an old ownership inscription shaved at the head, very small hole to fore margin of sig. I2, inked inscription "Rob. Colyer" in a contemporary hand to fore margin of p. 117, small ink-stain to p. 208 obscuring two letters, p. 274 marked in the last few lines of the letterpress, the text not obscured, short chip to bottom edge of sig. 2A5 where clumsily opened, the text spared, pagination on pp. 559-60 corrected in a contemporary hand, mark to p. 595 obscuring the catchword only. Vol. 2: leaves sometimes closely trimmed at head, occasionally shaving the top rule, and just touching a couple a letters of the running head at p. 70, old marking to lower margin of pp. 228-9, the text unaffected, pale damp-stain to sigs 3F3-4. Vol. 3: light browning, occasional marginal spotting, faint tide-mark intermittently appearing at top edge, title with the slightly shaved ownership inscription, "Lord Fauconberg, Booke, 1677" and a few shallow chips to the fore edge, very small worm-track to fore margin from title to sig. A4, the text never affected, small spill-burn to lower margin of sig. I6, old, pale splash-mark to sig. M6, contemporary ink-stain to pp. 200-1 obscuring half a letter, small inked "B" to p. 502 fore margin, in a contemporary hand, a couple of small spill-burns to sig. R6, partially obscuring two letters either side, the sense still clear, and causing one minute interlinear hole. These flaws minor: a very good set that presents well. Second and "definitive" edition (Hill), the first volume in second state, with the cancel title page dated 1599 and the account of the sack of Cadiz (pp. 607-19) suppressed. An attractive set of the work considered "the prose epic of the modern English nation" (Froude), lacking the very rare world map as usual ("The map is often lacking from the book and may quite possibly not have been issued with it", ESTC), but with an evocative dual provenance (see below). This monumental work greatly enlarges the first, one-volume edition of 1589, and represents "the most complete collection of voyages and discoveries, by land as well as by sea, and of the nautical achievements of the Elizabethans. After studying at Christ Church, Oxford ? [Hakluyt] became the first lecturer on modern geography. Although Hakluyt himself never travelled farther than France he inspired some of the great overseas explorations of his time and was one of the leading spirits in Elizabeth maritime expansion. He met many of the great navigators?Drake, Raleigh, Gilbert, Frobisher and others?corresponded with Ortelius and Mercator" (Printing and the Mind of Man). The entire third volume is devoted to America, and the work also contains accounts of Russia, Scandinavia, the Mediterranean, Turkey, the Middle East, Persia, India, south-east Asia, and Africa. The voyages range from the fourth century to the exploits of Hakluyt's contemporaries, and include many printed for the first time. The account of the Cadiz expedition was suppressed after the leader Robert Devereux, Earl of Essex, returned in disgrace from an ill-conceived adventure in Ireland; he was executed for treason in 1601. Provenance: with the armorial bookplate of Matthew White, Viscount Ridley, 2nd Baron Wensleydale to the front pastedown of the first two volumes, and the ownership inscription of Lord Fauconberg, dated 1677, to the title page of the third. Thomas Belasyse (1627/8-1700), first Earl Fauconberg, married Mary, daughter of Oliver Cromwell, in 1657, and in May the following year was sent to Paris as ambassador-extraordinary, "but after the protector's death in September he took steps to safeguard his interests ? He served the crown loyally as lord lieutenant and actively pursued sectarians and plotters throughout the 1660s" (ODNB) and was appointed Charles II's ambassador-extraordinary to Venice in 1669. He fell out of favour under James II but played an important role in the convention of 1689, which transferred the crowns of England, Scotland and Ireland to William III and Mary II. Matthew White Ridley (1874-1916) was Conservative member of parliament for Stalybridge between 1900 and 1904, when he succeeded his father to the title of 2nd Viscount Ridley. He is best remembered for chairing the Tariff Reform League, and also served as private secretary to the Home Secretary from 1900 to 1902, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer Austen Chamberlain from 1902 to 1904. He was married to Lady Cornelia Spencer-Churchill, a first cousin of Winston, and died of illness shortly before he was due to travel to the Western Front with the Northumberland Hussars.

        Lycophronis Chalcidensis Alexandra. Poëma obscurum. Ioannes Meursius recensuit, & libro commentario illustravit. Altera editio aucta & innovata. Accessit Iosephi Scaligeri Iulii Caes. F. versio centum locis emendatior.

      Leiden (Lugduni Batavorum), Ex officina Ludovici Elzevirii. 1599. 8vo. (XVI),350,(18 index) p. Calf (19th century) 16 cm (Ref: Willems 39; Rahir 25; Berghman 835; Hoffmann 2,569; cf. Smitskamp, The Scaliger collection, no.93 for the first edition of 1597; Brunet 3,1247-1248; Ebert 12543; Graesse 4,309) (Details: Back elaborately gilt with four ornamental lozenges; brown lettering label; the covers are tooled with a triple gilt fillet border, cover edges gilt; edges of the paper marbled, marbled endpapers. The colophon on the last page reads: 'Lugduni Batavorum. Excudebat Ioannes Balduini. VIII. Kal. Maias. anno 1599') (Condition: Nice copy, some slight wear to the extremities, just a bit of rubbing to the joints. Some small, old ink marginalia. Last quire slightly browning, otherwise clean and fresh) (Note: Lycophron, 3rd cent. BC, was called to Alexandria in Egypt by King Ptolemaeus Philadelphos. There this tragedian wrote his Alexandra (or Kassandra), ca. 1474 iambic trimeters, in which Kassandra tells about the fall of Troy, and the fates of the Greek and Trojan Heroes. It is his only surviving work, which is full of the extreme and designed obscurity that the Alexandrians, who were fond of a style full of learned allusions and playful riddles, loved. Rose calls the Alexandra a monstruous riddle. 'In form it is the speech of a messenger, a servant of Priam, (...), coming to tell his master that Kassandra (= Alexandra) has just delivered a mysterious oracle. (...) The prophecy concerns the whole history of Troy, the Trojans and their descendants, together with the fates of the Greeks for many generations to come, and from beginning to end it calls nothing and no one by any wellknown name, personal or geographical'. (H.J. Rose, A handbook of Greek literature', London 1964, p. 336). For instance, Lycophron calls the mythical hero Heracles the 'Lion of the triple evening', expecting the reader to know that Heracles, when he was begotten, the night was thrice its normal length. This edition of 1599 is a revised and improved second edition. The first edition was produced two years earlier, in 1597, by the then 18 years old Dutchman Joannes Meursius, or in Dutch 'Jan de Meurs', 1579-1639. He was a student of the genius Joseph Justus Scaliger, born in 1540, who lectured since 1593 in Leiden till his death in 1609. Scaliger helped and encouraged his pupil in the production of this edition. In the preface Meursius tells us that he wouldnot have dared to edit such a dark and difficult text without the help of Scaliger. Scaliger helped him with the commentary and gave him permission to reprint his verse translation, with corrections. This metrical and smooth Latin translation had been published previously in Basel in 1566. The last 251 pages of the book contain the commentary of Meursius, 'quod sine interprete vix est ut quisquam intellegat'. (preface, leaf A8 recto) Meursius was later appointed professor of History, and of Greek (1610/13) at his own university. He is best known for his editions of byzantine authors, and for the books he wrote on the history of ancient Greece, for example on festivals, Eleusis, and the antiquities of Athens and Attica. His work was widely used as source by later ancient historians. (Sandys 2,310/11)) (Collation: A-Z8 a8) (Photographs on request)

        Geometria prattica tratta dagl'Elementi d'Euclide

      Rome, Stefano de Paulini, 1599 Folio, (57) leaves including 51 engraved plates ; contemporary vellum. One of the best descriptions and introductions to 16th-century mathematical, surveying and engineering instruments. This richly illustrated manual of Euclidean geometry by Pomodoro is important for its realistic representations and full descriptions of contemporary mathematical instruments. Indeed, plate 1 shows 16 Italian mathematical, surveying instruments of the time. Pomodoro explains the construction and uses of each of them. This is an unexpected and scarce documentation for Renaissance instruments. In the second part, Pomodoro gives an early general theory of surveying with a very early surveying circle or circumferentor. An important introduction to 16th-century scientific instrumentation. Scarce first edition, first issue, in contemporary binding.

        Poliorceticon sive de Machinis Tormentis. Telis. Libri Quinque. Ad Historiarum lucem. Editio altera, correcta & aucta.

      Antverpiae, Ex Officina Plantiniana, Apud Ioannem Moretum. M.D.XCIX. 1599. 1599 1 vol. in-4° (250 x 170 mm.) de [8] ff., 267 pp., [4] ff. 30 gravures sur cuivre dont 10 in-texte et 20 à pleine page comprises dans la pagination. Pleine basane d'époque, dos à nerfs muet orné de fers à froid. (quelques déchirures recollées, trous de vers marginaux, un angle restauré avec petit manque de texte p. 63). Curieux exemplaire de cet ouvrage sur les fortifications et machines de guerre, dû au prolifique Juste Lipse (1547-1606). Les premiers feuillets (titre avec vignette, dédicace, épître) sont ceux de la seconde édition de 1599, dont les bibliographes nous disent quelle compte 218 pp., mais le reste de louvrage, (à partir du 2ème feuillet) correspond à lédition originale en 267 pp., illustrée de 30 gravures, et publiée en 1596. Proche de limprimeur Plantin (dont la marque figure dailleurs au dernier feuillet du présent ouvrage) qui imprima la majorité de ses ouvrages, Juste Lipse est un humaniste flamand qui s'illustra dans de nombreux domaines. Cest sans doute lauteur que Plantin imprima le plus, et avec le plus grand soin, marque de son amitié indéfectible. La première partie de luvre de Lipse est essentiellement consacrée à la philologie, à la philosophie et aux historiens latins (Sénèque et Tacite). Citons : « Variae lectiones », 1569, « Antiquae lectiones », 1575 , « Epistolicae quaestiones », 1577, « Manuductio ad philosophiam stoicam » et « Physiologia Stoicorum », 1604), « De constantia in publicis malis », 1584 ; « Politicorum sive civilis doctrinae libri sex », 1589. Il enseigna brillamment lhistoire à Iéna (1572-1574). Catholique dorigine, il fut professeur à luniversité calviniste de Leyde de 1579 à 1591, et joua un rôle majeur dans la renaissance de la philosophie stoïcienne. Au plus fort des guerres de religion, l'uvre de Juste Lipse dresse le portrait du sage néo-stoïcien guidé par sa seule raison et affirmant une certaine autonomie par rapport aux pouvoirs religieux et politiques. Lipse va se faire antiquaire et publier une série de traités très techniques consacrés aux gladiateurs (1582) ou aux amphithéâtres (1584), en attendant le très controversé de Cruce (1593). Le présent traité, divisé en 5 livres, comprend des études sur les machines de siège, l'Art de la guerre et l'armée romaine. Les gravures représentent des machines de guerre, des fortifications, des béliers, des structures et des outils défensifs. Bel exemplaire.1 vol. 4to. 30 engraved illustrations (10 half-page, 20 full page). Contemporary sheep. First edition (with the 8 first pages of the second) of the Plantin Press edition of The War Engines of the Ancients (OE: 1596). Lipsius (1547-1606, the greatest Latin scholar of his age) describes engines of war such as the battering ram and the catapult, used both for the attack and the defense of fortified sites. The figures illustrate the engines themselves and show attacks from both land and sea. The engravings are attributed to Otto Venius (1558-1629), a painter of Leyden and Antwerp and teacher of Reubens. Venius wrote and published a number of works which were illustrated by plates from his own design. Fine copy. Van der Haeghen, II, 357 (2nd édition) et 361 (1er édition).

        L'Ottomanno

      Chez Vittorio Baldini, 1599. - Chez Vittorio Baldini, In Ferrara (Ferrare) 1599, in-8 (9,5x14,5cm), (31p.) 191pp. (1p.) 7pp. (1p.), relié. - Bound in piena epoca pergamena, tenuto lacci delle scarpe, come la quasi cancellato sulle contreplats penna al serbatoio. Molti piccoli per lavorare su superfici piane, due angoli urtato. Restaurato frontespizio da imbottitura, - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Seconde édition, parue un an après l'originale, ornée d'une marque d'imprimeur portant la devise "Cominus et eminus", soit "Qui s'y frotte s'y pique". Frontispice allégorique représentant deux femmes, l'une dotée des attributs de la justice et l'autre de la prospérité, debout sur un sol d'où émergent deux têtes enturbannées, symboles de l'armée ottomane mise en déroute par les forces chrétiennes hongroises.         29 lignes par page. Reliure en plein vélin d'époque, dos lisse avec titre à la plume presque effacé en tête.  Petits travaux de vers sur les plats. Page de titre restaurée en marge intérieure, petite coupure en marge intérieure p.43-44 sans manque. Les sources biographiques concernant l'auteur sont faibles. Issu d'une grande famille patricienne de Venise, il fut Procurateur de Saint-Marc. Dans l'adresse au lecteur, rédigée par Angelo Benaducci, il est décrit comme un « un gentilhomme très connu non seulement à Venise sa patrie, mais aussi dans le monde romain en tant que chambellan d'honneur du Souverain Pontife ».  L'ouvrage se divise en trois parties détaillées par l'auteur dans sa préface : - la première, sous forme de métaphore médicale, traite "del Capo, de' membri, e delle forze dell'Impero Ottomanno" ("de la tête, des membres et des forces de l'Empire Ottoman") - la seconde partie s'intéresse aux causes de la Guerre de Quinze Ans, son origine et ses avancées, depuis le début de ce conflit turco-hongrois sous Murad III - la dernière partie évoque enfin le danger pesant sur la chrétienté si cette guerre venait à durer Le texte se concentre donc sur un épisode particulièrement marquant de l'histoire ottomane, la Longue Guerre (ou Guerre de Quinze Ans), conflit opposant les Habsbourg aux Ottomans entre 1591 et 1606 environ. L'ouvrage concerne les règnes de deux sultans ottomans à la tête de l'Empire au cours de ce conflit : Murad III sous la gouvernance duquel les institutions déclinent sous l'effet des nombreuses campagnes militaires et son fils Mehmed III. C'est sous le règne de ce dernier que le conflit atteint son apogée. En effet, au moment même où il cherche à créer des alliances prospères en se tournant vers la France d'Henri IV afin de nouer de nouvelles relations censées ouvrir des voies commerciales contournant les terres hongroises, des conflits internes à l'Empire (soulèvement d'une partie de la noblesse) viennent fragiliser cette alliance. En dépit de ces troubles intérieurs, Mehmed III offre aux Turcs une victoire majeure face aux chrétiens à la bataille de Keresztes (1596) : cet épisode a très certainement influencé Soranzo dans son écriture en lui faisant redouter une victoire ottomane sur les armées hongroises, d'où le frontispice décrit précédemment.  Lazaro Soranzo propose une vision très contemporaine de la Longue Guerre mais aussi et surtout partisane : en effet, l'ouvrage est dédié au Pape Clément VIII qui, en 1595, avait organisé une alliance entre les puissances européennes chrétiennes afin de s'opposer à l'Empire ottoman. Il n'est donc pas surprenant de constater que l'imprimeur choisi pour éditer l'ouvrage soit Vittorio Baldini, imprimeur officiel de la cour ducale d'Alphonse II d'Este à Ferrare ; en 1598, la ville est rattachée aux Etats Pontificaux et Baldini prend le titre de "Stampatore Camerale" ("Imprimeur de la Chambre apostolique"), statut idéal pour publier un livre faisant l'apologie de la défense de la chrétienté.  Rare exemplaire relatant un épisode marquant de l'histoire ottomane sous un point de vue chrétien.
