Diese Rolle ist mir auch in Linz und Salzburg begegnet, aber immer als vereinzelte Erscheinung" (Haebler I, 403).

        Discorsi politici (...), Nei quali si considerano diversi fatti illustri, e memorabili di Principi, e di Republiche Antiche, e Moderne. Divisi in due libri. Aggiontovi nel fine un suo Soliloquio, nelquale l'Auttore fa un breve essame di tutto il corso della sua vita (...).

      Venetia, Domenico Nicolini, 1599.. 2 parties en un fort volume in-4, pleine basane marbree (dos refait, plats d'origine conserves), (22) f. dont titre, 636 p., (1) f. de colophon et 21 p., (1) p. de colophon, impression en italique, lettrines historiees, bandeaux et culs de lampe, portrait de l'auteur en grande vignette de titre. Edition originale posthume de l'oeuvre principale de Paolo Paruta, publiee un an apres sa mort, prolongement des recherches entreprises par Machiavel. En theoricien de la raison d'Etat, l'auteur etudie les causes de la grandeur et de la decadence de l'Empire romain qu'il compare a la republique venitienne, pour conclure en faveur de cette derniere. Si les institutions politiques varient inevitablement selon le lieu, les circonstances et les moeurs, la personnalite du souverain et sa " virtu " doivent constituer un exemple absolu pour ses administres. L'ouvrage est cite comme l'une des sources de Montesquieu. A la suite, sous pagination separee: un 'Soliloquio', interessante meditation de l'auteur sur son propre parcours et sa vie passee, sans doute inspiree par Saint Augustin. Homme d'Etat et historien venitien, Paolo Paruta fut historiographe de Venise, senateur, gouverneur de Brescia, ambassadeur et procurateur de Saint-Marc. (Adams, P.363. Brunet, IV, 392. Graesse, V, 144). Quelques petits soulign. anciennes au crayon en marge. Tres bon exemplaire..

      1599. 1599 Venetian Edition of the Consolato del Mare [Consolato del Mare]. Ca da Mosto, Alvise [1432-1488]. Il Consolato Del Mare.

[xvi], 232; [4], 37 [i.e. 74] pp. The second part, Il Portolano del Mare, has title page and separate foliation. Quarto (7-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary vellum, spine repaired, pastedowns renewed, ties lacking. Minor edgewear, light soiling and a few stains to boards, which are slightly bowed. Attractive woodcut head-pieces, tail-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning, minor worming in a few places with negligible loss to text. Early owner signature to title page, contemporary underlining and check marks to a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. An appealing copy. * Later edition. A landmark in the development of maritime law, the Consolato del Mare was first published in Barcelona in 1484. A digest of the law and practice commonly followed by the commercial judges in the chief ports around the Mediterranean, it became a maritime common law of the Mediterranean and a foundation for subsequent European maritime laws and customs. Its circulation was widest in Italy, especially among the Venetians, but it was also influential in Western Europe. In addition to maritime law, it contains a great deal of information about the day-to-day operations of a ship and practical advice on seafaring. Il Portolano del Mare, an appendix, is usually attributed to Alvise Ca da Mosto, a Venetian navigator who made two voyages to Guinea in the service of Portugal's Prince Henry the Navigator. Adams, Catalogue of Books Printed on the Continent of Europe, 1501-1600 C2538..

        Opera quae exstant. Ad Exemplar quod I. Lipsius quintum recensuit

      Paris, A. Drouart 1599 (dritter Teil: 1590). Drei Teile in einem Band.. 8°. (2) Bll., 790 Ss., (1) Bl. (weiß), (12) Bll., 568 Ss., (24) Bll. (letztes weiß), 24 Bll. Mit wiederholter Druckermarke und verschiedenen Zierstücken in Holzschnitt. Prachtvoller goldgepr. roter Maroquineinband mit Wappen des Gerichtshofes von Franche-Comte in Dole auf Vorder- und Rückendeckel (kaum berieben, Vordergelenk beschabt) ohne die Bindebänder; dreiseitiger Goldschnitt (etwas abgegriffen). Seltene und umfassend kommentierte Ausgabe. Diese Ausgabe umfasst die Werke des Tacitus, den Kommentar von Iustus Lipsius sowie in dem kurzen dritten Teil die Anmerkungen des Josias Mercerus (diese in der Ausgabe Paris, A. Drouart 1590). Tacitus (ca. 55 - ca. 120 n. Chr.) hat mit seinem historisch-politischen Schrifttum bis in die Neuzeit hinein gewirkt. In der Lebensbeschreibung seines Schwiegervaters Agricola (De vita Julii Agricolae) portraitiert er einen römischen Senator, der auch unter einem böswilligen Kaiser (Domitian) senatorisch-adlige Tugenden bewahrt; Agricolas militärische Erfolge als Statthalter in Britannien werden dabei eher überzeichnet. De origine et situ Germanorum, die Schrift über Lebensraum und Sitten der Germanen, urteilt strikt aus römischer Persepektive: je weiter von den Grenzen des Römischen Reiches entfernt, umso wilder gebärden sich die Germanen. Tacitus' Angaben über Herkunft und Sitten stellen - trotz vieler Ungenauigkeiten - eine erste Ethnographie der Germanen dar. Außerdem hat er einen klaren Blick für ihr militärisches Potential: In seinen Augen stellen sie die Hauptfeinde Roms dar. Der Dialog über die Redner (Dialogus de oratoribus) zeigt eine interessante Gegenbewegung: Je höher das Niveau der Rhetorik, umso fragiler die staatliche Ordnung. Die beiden historischen Hauptwerke sind nur unvollständig überliefert. Die Historiae behandeln den Zeitraum der flavischen Kaiser (69 - 96 n. Chr. Anhand des Vierkaiserjahres (69) gestaltet Tacitus die Fragilität des römischen Systems, die v.a. im Versagen und in der Opportunität der tragenden politischen Gruppen liege: des Senates, der stadtrömischen Bürgerschaft und des Heeres. Die Annales greifen weiter zurück und stellen den Zeitraum von der Machtübernahme des Tiberius bis zum Tod Neros dar (14 - 68 n. Chr.). Auch hier zeichnet der Autor ein überwiegend negatives Charakterbild der Kaiser. Ordnungspolitische vertitt Tacitus aristokratische Vorstellungen mit Beteiligungrechten der senatorischen Oberschicht, lehnt aber eine Demokratisierung, die das Volk einbeziehen würde, ab; Chaos wäre seiner Ansicht nach die Folge. Der ausgezeichnet erhaltene Einband zeigt auf Vorder- und Rückendeckel den gleichen goldgeprägten Dekor: auf einen schmalen umlaufenden äußeren Fries folgt ein großes Mittelfeld mit arabeskenartigen, sehr fein gearbeiteten Eckstücken und einem ovalen Mittelstück; das trägt am oberen Rand einen Engelskopf mit Flügeln und rundherum eiförmige Bordürenverzierungen. Innen befindet sich das Wappen der Franche-Comte mit dem von Lorbeerzweigen und auf jeder Seiten von einem in eine Andreaskreuz verschlungenen Hobel eingefassten, gekrönten und bewehrten Löwen mit der umlaufenden zweigeteilten Devise "VIGILAT ET CUSTODIT / SUPR DOLAE SEN COMIT BURG". Es handelt sich hierbei um einen Wahlspruch des Parlements von Franche-Comte (s. Chassant-Taussin, Suppl. S. 500 und 548, Gauthier/Lurion Nr. 30 mit Abb., Olivier 1153), das im 16. und 17. Jahrhundert in Dole und Salins tagte; Ludwig XIV. verlegte den Sitz 1676 nach Besancon (s. Olivier). Lt. Olivier wurden Drucke in derartigen Einbänden von dem Gerichtshof dem Jesuitenkonvent in Dole als Preisschrift zur Verfügung gestellt. Durchgehend leicht gebräunt (erste Bll. etwas stärker), stellenweise Ränder etwas wasserfleckig oder mit kleinen Papierrestaurierungen (Text nicht betroffen). Ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar in einem ungewöhnlichen Einband.Schweiger II, 1000; BMSTC (French Books) 412 (Impressum: Buons Witwe)..

        Les Ans ou Reports del Raigne du Roye Edward le Quart, Novelment...

      1599. [Yearbook]. Edward IV. Les Ans ou Reports del Raigne du Roye Edward le Quart, Novelment Revieu et Corrigee en Divers Lieux. Ouesque un Table Perfect des Choses Notables Contenus en Ycel. Auxy vous Aves in Cest Impression las Cases icy Referres al Abridgement de Brooke, & As Auters Lieurs del Common Ley. London: In Aedibus Thomae Wight & Bonhami Norton, 1599.[i], 10, 29, 28, 44, 8, 12, 32, 25, 53, 19, 11, 21, 10, 8, 33, 12, 8,30, 10, 19, 84, 51, [40] ff. Folio (11-1/2" x 8").

Some rubbing to extremities, a few shallow scuffs to boards, corners bumped, pastedowns loose and edgeworn, as are other endleaves and title page, later armorial bookplate (of W.J.R.Powell) to verso of front board. Title printed within handsome woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials. Light toning to text, faint dampstaining to upper margins in a few places, finger smudges to a few leaves, internally clean. A nice copy. * Covers regnal years 1 to 22 of Edward IV. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the Year Books. As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings in Norman England they are of crucial primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. They also provide a richly detailed portrait of contemporary English life, customs and manners. The origin of the Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintains that they were records of cases made by lawyers for personal use. Though it is not known when the first manuscript volumes were compiled, it is clear that cases can be found to date from the 1270's and the series continues to 1535. Marvin suggests that the Year Books are as old as the time of William the Conquerer. As Marvin has pointed out, these are the "venerable books" from which Littleton, Hobart, Hale and Coke drew "so much valuable ore, melting it into ingots and refining and sending it abroad as the correct coin of the Common Law." Printed editions of the Year Books were first issued by William de Machlinia between 1481 and 1482. The present volume is one of the so-called "quarto edition." These volumes were issued separately with various dates.

Em 1559 tornou-se professor de filosofia e em 1561 o primeiro professor de ciências naturais em Bolonha. No curso de sua vida iria montar um dos mais extraordinário gabinetes de curiosidades. Este 'teatro' de História Natural continha cerca de 7.000 exemplares dos quais ele escreveu uma descrição em 1595. Entre 1551 e 1554 organizou várias expedições para um herbário: as primeiras expedições botânicas. Possivelmente o seu herbário continha cerca de 4760 exemplares em 4117 fólios de 16 volumes, conservados na Universidade de Bolonha. Tinha vários artistas, incluindo Jacopo Ligozzi, Giovanni Neri, e Cornelio Schwindt, fazendo ilustrações de espécimes. A seu pedido e sob a sua direcção foi criado em Bolonha, em 1568, o Jardim Botânico, agora a Orto Botanico dell'Universita di Bologna. Legou a suas vastas colecções de botânica e zoologia, ao Senado de Bolonha. Até 1742 as colecções foram conservadas no Palazzo Pubblico, em seguida, no Palazzo Poggi, e foram distribuídos entre várias bibliotecas e instituições no decorrer do século XIX. Em 1907, uma parte representativa foi reunida no Palazzo Poggi, em Bolonha. Binding: Remake of the contemporary hard parchment, with title written at spine; new endpapers; old dampstains. Profusely illustrated with woodcut prints of birds from places discovered on Earth. In the scientific category of birds bats are included all together. The birds are presented in the cycle of predation devouring other birds. The work displays engravings with the external and internal anatomy of birds. The book is subtitled History of Birds and these are presented in their material and symbolic relationship with the different known human societies, for example: the 16th European society with its heraldic elements; in the antiquity with the representation of the divine avatars in Egypt; in America with headdresses and feather clothing of the Amerindians; etc. Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605) was an Italian naturalist. Linnaeus and Buffon reckoned him the father of natural history studies. He is usually referred to, especially in older literature, as Aldrovandus; his name in Italian is equally given as Aldroandi. He obtained a degree in medicine and philosophy in 1553 and started teaching logic and philosophy in 1554 at the University of Bologna. In 1559 he bec

Casaubon divided it into two kinds; supernatural which was 'a true possession, whether divine or diabolical,' and natural 'whereof all men are capable' to which belonged the delusions and hallucinations of the insane; the first not less real for being rare, the second common. "Casaubon had read 'The Life of Sister Katharine of Jesus' published at Paris, 1628, 'a long contexture of severall strange raptures and enthusiasms, that had hapned unto a melancholick, or if you will, a devout maid.' Despite approbations from a cardinal, an archbishop, a bishop and several doctors of divinity, Casaubon could find 'no great matter of wonder' in it but instead 'a perpetuall coherence of naturall causes.' Disturbed 'that what by such, and so many, was judged God, and Religion, should be nothing but Nature and Superstition,' he determined to investigate the whole matter thoroughly and this book was the result. Its main purpose was to survey historically cases and opinions so as to distill and preserve the belief in true divine intervention from adulteration with 'natural enthusiasm' with which it was often confused to its disrepute: 'to embrace a cloud, or a fog for a deity; it is done by many, but it is a foul mistake: let him take heed of it.' " 'A Treatise Concerning Enthusiasm,' was an enlightened work since in it Casaubon set out to show how various enthusiasms, such as 'divinatory,' 'contemplative,' 'rhetorical,' 'precatory,' and others could arise from mental abnormalities without supernatural intervention or imposture. Read today in this sense it was a psychiatric treatise devoted to mental illness with religious coloring and the special problems raised by it. The first extract shows how epileptic phenomena in particular made it difficult to accept all mental illness as 'natural.' This was partly because of the dramatic effect of sudden, short-lived, episodic disturbances of consciousness accompanied by convulsions in otherwise normal persons which had given epilepsy its popular name of sacred disease and rise to Hippocrates's famous pronouncement: 'it appears to me to be nowise more divine nor more sacred than other diseases, but has a natural cause from which it originates like other affections. Men regard its nature and cause as divine from ignorance and wonder, because it is not at all like to other diseases.' Another difficulty was that persons suffering from minor epileptic conditions such as temporal lobe disturbances with twilight, dreamy or confusional states - surprisingly known to Casaubon and called by him 'a more gentle and remiss kind of Epilepsie' - often report hallucinatory experiences as of another world. These are sometimes elaborated into delusional systems on religious themes. - 'for it is natural to those that have been epileptical to fall into melancholy' - especially if repetition of vivid experience perhaps reinforced by a feeling of reminiscence or deja vu has convinced the patient of direct contact with superior powers. A third difficulty was the overzeal in religious matters or religiosity which is a common manifestation of epileptic personality change. "The mental disturbances in another group of patients seemed also to be inexplicable on natural grounds, namelly those whose 'distemper' was 'confined to some one object or other, the brain being otherwise sound and sober' such as the 'poor woman in Warwick-shire' mentioned by Joseph Glanvill, 'whose habitual conceit it was, that she was Mother of God, and of all things living, and yet when I diverted her to anything else of ordinary matters, she spoke usually with as much sobriety and cold discretion, as could well be expected from a person of her condition.' This apparent paradox of 'a sober kind of distraction' as Casaubon called it, has always been a major stumbling block in psychiatric systems and classifications. [.] Casaubon realized that it touched on the fundamental question whether insanity 'was an error of imagination only, and not of understanding.' and wondered whether by natural means one faculty could be 'depraved' without the other. This dichotomy between an 'intellective' or 'ratiocinative' and an 'imaginative' faculty is still implied in the current psychiatric distinction of mental illness into 'thought disorder' or schizophrenia and 'affective disorder' or manic-depressive psychosis, and of course forms the basic tenet of the McNaughton Rules (1843) by which 'a defect of reason, from disease of the mind' is the ultimate medico-legal test for the presence or absence of absolving insanity."

Light toning to text, faint dampstaining to upper margins in a few places, finger smudges to a few leaves, internally clean. A nice copy. * Covers regnal years 1 to 22 of Edward IV. It is difficult to overestimate the importance of the Year Books. As a series of notes on debates and points of pleadings in Norman England they are of crucial primary sources for our knowledge of medieval common law. They also provide a richly detailed portrait of contemporary English life, customs and manners. The origin of the Year Books is unknown. Maitland believed that the earliest volumes were notes taken by law students in court copied for the use of pleaders in later cases. Holdsworth maintains that they were records of cases made by lawyers for personal use. Though it is not known when the first manuscript volumes were compiled, it is clear that cases can be found to date from the 1270&#39;s and the series continues to 1535. Marvin suggests that the Year Books are as old as the time of William the Conquerer. As Marvin has pointed out, these are the "venerable books" from which Littleton, Hobart, Hale and Coke drew "so much valuable ore, melting it into ingots and refining and sending it abroad as the correct coin of the Common Law." Printed editions of the Year Books were first issued by William de Machlinia between 1481 and 1482. The present volume belongs to the so-called "Quarto Edition." Not a set in the conventional sense, these volumes w

        [Holy Bible] The New Testament of Our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Volumes)

      London: Deputies of Christopher Barker, 1599 [1633/1639?]. As. Hard Cover. Good. Vol I: [1], 61. VOl. II: 62-121, [1]. 8vo. Title, Cont: "Translated out of Greeke by Theod. Beza: With briefe Summaries and expositions upon the hard places by the said Author, Ioac. Camer and P. Leseler, Villerius. Englished by L. Tomson. Together with the Annotations of Fr. Junius upon the Revelation of S. Iohn. Imprinted at London by the Deputies of Christopher Barker, Printer to the Queenes most Excellent Maiestie. 1599." No prelims present. Title page, as in Herbert 1599, is the 24-compartment woodcut frame, with the tents of the 12 tribes on the left, figures of the 12 Apostles on the Right, inner corners of the four Gospel authors, with the symbols of the Dove and Angus Dei, the lamp, and two open books. Title is enclosed within a heart-shaped frame. At the base of the cut is a line of music. A preliminary leaf has a page of notes from "the printer to the diligent reader." Verso of this leaf is "The description of the holy Land conteining the places mentioned in the foure Evangelists...." above a map with a legend below. The Book of Matthew starts on p. 3 and text block goes through p. 61b. Pages 62-121b are in a second cover. Page 110b, which precedes the Book of Revelation, contains a chart "The Order of Time." These two volumes appear to have been hand-bound in a set of trimmed leaves, which was then sewn with cord, and bound in boards covered with marbled paper, with spine and all edges bound with once-ivory vellum. Covers are soiled and warped with trim in various stages of disintegration, but have accomplished the purpose of protecting the contents. Only traces of foxing, with integrity of the stock quite surprising. Inside each book is a printed label "Joseph Angus." Title page is detached from binding, and first leaf is partially detached. All other pages holding tight. There are occasional marginal notes and underlinings in brown ink. Presumably the notes of Joseph Angus (1816-1902), a noted Baptist theologian and historian who was a member of the New Testament Company for the Revision of the Scriptures for the American Bible Union. His extensive personal library formed the foundation of the Angus Library at Regent&#39;s Park College, Oxford, England, of which Angus was Principal 1849 - 1893. STC 2177/2179.

        La Pompa Funerale fatta in Napoli nell&#39;Esquie del Catholico Re Filippo II di Austria

      Naples: Stigliola, 1599. Hardcover. Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to., (4) ff., 147 pp., 1 large folding plate [70 x 24 cm] signed by Domenico Fontana, backed on linen. Woodcut blasón on title-page. Bound in modern marbled paper over boards. Some toning, and minor discoloration to join of plates, but generally good.Very rare first edition of the funeral exequies held in Naples for Philip II of Spain, containing a large folding engraving of the baroque mausoleum designed for the occasion by Domenico Fontana, who with della Porta had completed St. Peter&#39;s Cathedral after Michelangelo&#39;s death. The engraving depicts both the façade and floor-plan of the mausoleum: a hexagonal tabernacle of Corinthian columns surrounding a central bier, with emblems painted on the base, entablature and modillions, and a dome that bears a striking resemblance to St. Peter&#39;s cupola, which Fontana had completed less than a decade before. Unlike contemporary catafalques, which were usually built from wood and painted with trompe l&#39;oeil &#39;sculpture&#39;, Fontana&#39;s mausoleum was more than an occasional piece: Caputi states clearly that while some of its elements were finte di marmo (faux marble), others were of true colored marble or marmo gentile. Prior to discussing the monument&#39;s lavish ornamentation, the author also treats the proportional design of its arches, dome, pilasters, columns etc. The presence of a floor-plan, and Fontana&#39;s inclusion of functional ornament such as the cupola lantern (adapted from his design for St. Peter&#39;s), indicate that the present monument was also a work of some architectural ambition. The plan is sometimes found in copies of Fontana&#39;s 1604 second edition of the Obelisco, but is not found invariably; the text in the present work relating to the occasion is not reprinted.OCLC: Berkeley.*ICCU; Praz p. 297; Graesse VII, 155.

      London: Christopher Barker, nd. (1599). Full Leather. Near Fine binding. Octavo. There is no title page because these were printed to be put in the Geneva translation of the Bible as a concordance. There are several editions. This was printed by Christopher Barker [Printer to her majesty the Queen], and not one of his deputies. Therefore would have had to be printed by or before 1599 when Barker died. All editions until 1615 have the date 1578 on the second leaf, as this copy does. Rebound in a most handsome period binding; title label says "Hervey&#39;s Tables" rather than "Herrey&#39;s Tables".

        The Bible, That is, The Holy Scripture Conteined in the Olde and Newe Testament, Translated According to the Ebrew and Greeke

      London: Imprinted at London By the Deputies of Christopher Barker..., 1599. Brown Calf half-leather with marbled boards, binding likely late 18th-early 19th Cent., "Bible/1599" in gilt on spine, 6 narrow gilt (not raised) bands. Leather clean and firm, minor repairs to hinges, but marbled boards quite rubbed. Text block trimmed down from 4to to 8vo, without any loss of text (or printed marginalia). Engraved general title page and New Testament title page lacking, but supplied in matching facsimile; printed general title is present (dated 1599), and original. Repairs to gutter of "How to take profite in reading the Holy Scriptures", affecting text of this and "Names and order of all the Bookes" on the verso. Missing text and numbers neatly restored on matching paper. Text is that of the Geneva version, with Tomson&#39;s revision of Beza&#39;s New Testament, and Junius&#39;s Revelation. Several woodcuts throughout, illustrating Genesis, Ezekiel &c., also a map of the Holy Land preceding the NT. Apocrypha is not present after OT, nor is the Psalter after NT. Publisher&#39;s colophon dated 1599 on final page of text after Second Table of "principall Things". This copy is quite possibly one of the "1599" Barker quartos actually printed in the early 17th Cent. in the Low Countries for surreptitious import into England to satisfy a continuing Puritan demand for an alternative to the King James version. 2 bookplates on the f.p.d. and the verso of the f.f.e.p., both ex-libris John Haxton of Markinch. Haxton was a noted Victorian collector of 16th & 17th Cent. English Bibles, which passed to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland upon his death in 1899. The better part of these now reside in the National Library of Scotland. However, at some point in the early 20th Cent. it seems this particular volume strayed from the flock, likely deaccessioned by the Scots Antiquaries for its perceived defects..

        Ducato di Parma et di Piacenza

      Carta geografica tratta da "L'Italia" a cura di Fabio Magini, edito a Bologna tra il 1620 ed il 1640. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. la carta del Ducato dei Farnese probabilmente deriva da un inedito manoscritto in possesso dell?autore, in quanto non presenta analogie significative con le altre opere realizzate in precedenza sul territorio di Parma e Piacenza; nell?ordine quella del Cock nel 1551, del De Jode nel 1578 e del Mercator nel 1589. L?Almagià rileva che per la parte relativa al parmense il Magini si servì di un inedito fornitogli da Smeraldo Smeraldi, mentre per il territorio di Piacenza di alcune notizie ricevute da Paolo Bolzoni, dal quale attese invano una carta dettagliata, e da altre fonti. Iniziata da Arnoldo Arnoldi, la lastra venne probabilmente terminata dal Wright intorno al 1607. " This map derives from an unknown manuscript belonging to the author since it is not similar to any previous ones representing the Duchy of Parma and Piacenza, such as those by Cock (1551), De Jode (1578) and Mercator (1589). According to some authors Magini's sources were Smeraldo Smeraldi for the territory of Parma and Paolo Bolzoni for the one of Piacenza. The plate itself was probably made by Wright around 1607. Slightly spoiled at margins, overall in very good conditions.-Italy according to Magini: a cartographical model for posterity-Giovanni Antonio Magini was born in Padua in 1555, dedicating himself to the study of astronomy from an early age. In 1588 the Senate of Bologna appointed him Lecturer of Astronomy at the local university, choosing him instead of Galileo Galilei. His friendship with the Duke of Mantua, Vincenzo Gonzaga, helped Magini in his quest to obtain cartographical material for map-making from the various sovereigns ruling the different italian states at that time. Because of Magini's early death in 1617 this effort was made known by his son Fabio when he published the atlas ""L'Italia"" in Bologna in 1620. This is the first example of an italian atlas and is made up of 24 pages of descriptive text and 61 maps of the italian peninsula. Although this work was published posthumously, it can be entirely ascribed to Magini. He began drawing this maps around 1594, with the one depicting Bologna and its surrounding territories being the first. They were all printed before 1620 in draft editions which were then revised and updated for the final version. These draft proofs are extremely rare, although sometimes available for sale, and exhibit substantial differences in respect to the maps finally included in the atlas. Two of the most famous engravers of the time, Arnoldo Arnoldi and the englishman Benjamin Wright, were entrusted by Magini to engrave the plates. As we shall see in the presentation of the separate maps, they derive from different sources, both known and unknown, and therefore represent the result of an original work of critical analysis and compilation. This atlas had an important influence on the cartography of the italian peninsula for the following two centuries, beginning from Ortelius and going on to the principal dutch cartographers and editors.
