ALDROVANDI (ALDOVANDUS), Ulisse.
1599. Adams A-647; BMC NH I, pp. 26-27; Nissen, BBI 14; Nissen, IVB 18; Nissen ZBI 66, 68, 70, 72, 74-78; for Aldrovandi's museum: Findlen, Possessing nature, pp. 17-31; Stafleu & Cowan, pp. 28-29. Ten first (1599-1668) and three later (1634-1638) editions forming the complete works of Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605), an Italian botanist, pharmacologist and a professor of botany at the university of Bologna. This massive encyclopaedia, most volumes published posthumously, was based on natural history specimens and drawings in Aldrovandi's own museum in Bologna. Already in the 1570s he welcomed visitors from near and far to his museum and at his death in 1605 he left it to the city of Bologna, making it the first institutional herbarium.Aldrovandi, hailed as the "Pliny of his time", was the author of several encyclopaedic works on natural history, the Opera being his most extensive work and also the largest collection of natural history illustrations published before the 18th century. Many of the illustrations in these 13 volumes are the work of Jacopo Ligozzi. The original drawings are still in Bologna and have been made available online. The Aldrovandi herbarium was the biggest of the 16th century herbaria and gives the most complete picture of the plant world as known at the time in Italy.In very good condition, with some waterstains and occasional browning. One volume has the head of the backstrip restored and several have cracks in the hinges, but the bindings remain good.

Binsfeld, Peter:
Brunntruti (i.e. Porrentruy), Jean Fabre. 1599. 8°. 30 n.n. S., 704 (recte 730) S. Schweinslederband mit blindgeprägter Rollstempelverzierung, Medaillon auf den Deckeln und zwei intakten Metallschliessen. Nicht in der «Bibliographie du Jura» von Amweg. - Selten wie alle frühen Drucke aus dem Fürstbistum Basel. Das Lehrbuch der Pastoraltheologie, in dem der Trierer Weihbischof Peter Binsfeld (1545-1598) diesen Begriff prägte, war weit weniger erfolgreich als dessen Schriften gegen die Hexerei. Binsfeld stieg vom armen Bauersohn bis in die höchsten deutschen Kirchenämter auf. Gefürchtet für seine Gnadenlosigkeit bei der Verfolgung von Hexen und Zauberern fanden seine Schriften grosse Verbreitung. Zwei Jahre nach seinem Hexentraktat erschien 1591 das vorliegende Lehrbuch in Trier, das sich hauptsächlich kirchenrechtlich begründet. - Mit handschriftlichem Besitzvermerk eines Niklaus Nietlispach aus dem Jahr 1601 mit einer kleinen Zeichnung auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz. Sprache: lateinisch.

POMODORO, Giovanni.
Apresso Stefano de Paulini, Rome, 1599. First edition, first issue, of this finely illustrated manual of Euclidean geometry and its practical applications for surveyors, architects and others, unusual for being printed in folio, and a rather large folio for the period. The first plate illustrates surveying and measuring instruments; this is followed by a series of plates with Euclidean geometrical diagrams, and then by attractive plates of surveying and measuring problems, including architectural plans and elevations of buildings and streets. Many of the surveying scenes include figures in gentlemanly or military costumes or nude. The first 44 plates were designed by Pomodoro, but he died before the work was complete and the text was provided by Giovanni Scala (1547-1600), who also supplied a further seven plates. The fame of Pomodoro’s treatise is attested by the fact that, just one year after its publication, it was cited by the architect Giorgio Vasari the Younger (1562-1625) (the nephew of the art historian of the same name) in his manuscript Raccolto di varii instrumenti per misurare con la vista: six of the 76 folios of the manuscript refer to Pomodoro, and Vasari traced illustrations from Tavolas I and XLI-XLIV (Brusaporci, p. 216). This is a very rare book: OCLC lists 5 copies in US (Burndy, Cornell, Harvard, Iowa State, Michigan); COPAC lists BL and Wellcome only; ABPC/RBH record only one copy sold at auction since the Honeyman sale (Christie’s, 6 June 2001, lot 384, £4230, modern binding).The treatise begins with the description of the principal instruments for dr … [Click Below for Full Description]

STEVIN, Simon.
Ex officina Plantiniana apud Christophorum Raphelengium. Academiae Lugduno-Batavae Typographum, Leiden, 1599. First Latin edition of Stevin’s extremely rare and important work on the determination of longitude using magnetic variation. Originally published in Dutch as De Havenvinding, "the [Latin] translation appeared almost simultaneously with the original Dutch version" (Crone et al, p. 375); English and French translations followed later in the same year. "In a seafaring nation like the Dutch republic matters of navigation were, of course, of great importance. In addition to his astronomical works, Stevin approached the subject of determining the longitude of a ship, a problem that was not fully solved until the nineteenth century. Several previous authors had suggested that longitude might be determined by measuring the deviation of the magnetic needle from the astronomical meridian, a suggestion based on the assumption that the earth-wide distribution of terrestrial magnetism was known. Since the determination of latitude was well known, such a measurement would allow the sailor to chart longitudinal position against the latitudinal circle. Stevin, in his booklet, gave a clear explanation of this method; he differed from Petrus Plancius and Mercator in that he did not rely upon a priori conceptions of the way in which geomagnetic deviation depends upon geographical position. Although he was willing to offer a conjecture about this dependence, Stevin insisted on the necessity of collecting actual measurements from all possible sources and urged the establishment of an e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Veer, Gerrit de
Venice: Giovanni Battista Ciotti, 1599. [4],79 leaves, with thirty-two in-text engravings, including five maps. Small quarto. Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript spine title. A few patches of light staining to vellum, slight biopredation at lower corners. 20th-century bookplates in front endpapers. Light foxing to titlepage, light dust soiling and few stray ink marks throughout. A very good copy, overall. The first edition in Italian, published the year after the Dutch and Latin editions, of a classic collection of three Dutch northern voyages during 1594-97 led by William Barents. Two issues of Giunio Parisio's translation were printed the same year, the present one by Giovanni Ciotti and the other by Porro. Veer's narrative of shipwreck off Nova Zembla and a terrible winter, in which a number of the crew froze to death and many others were eaten by polar bears, is a remarkable narrative of heroism in exploration. The fine engravings are reduced versions of the illustrations in the first edition. During the first voyage of 1594, the coast of Nova Zembla was successfully explored right up to its most northern point. The second voyage of 1595 proved a failure when pack ice blocked the passage of the ships between the Straits of Vaigatz and the mainland as late as the summer months, the result of an especially harsh Arctic winter. The third voyage, of 1596-97, which takes up the greater part of the volume, ranks as one of the greatest in the history of polar exploration. The expedition sailed in a northerly direction, discovering Bear Island and Spitzbergen. Unable t … [Click Below for Full Description]

CLEMENTE VIII PAPA
Apud impressores camerales, Roma, 1599. Quattro pagine (un foglio in -4° ripiegato) contenenti tre lettere di Clemente VIII. Si dà il permesso a Francisco De Montilla, missionario francescano in Oriente di prendere delle reliquie dall'Italia per portarle nelle Filippine (dove Clemente, nel 1595, aveva elevato Manila a sede metropolitana). Ferrara era passata sotto il dominio dello Stato Pontificio a gennaio del 1598, cioè pochi mesi prima della redazione di queste lettere: per sottolineare l'importanza del recupero della città, Clemente prese possesso di persona della nuova provincia, dove avrebbe soggiornato fra il maggio e il novembre di quell'anno. La richiesta dell'altare, argomento della prima di queste tre lettere, proveniva da Antonio de Cordoba y Cardona, ambasciatore spagnolo a Manila: da notare che la Spagna decidette, nella questione della successione ferrarese, di mantenersi neutrale. Four pages (a folded leaf in -4°) including three Clemente VIII's letters. Permission is given to Francisco de Montilla, a Franciscan missionary in Far East, to take holy relics from Italy, to be bringed in the Philippine (were Clemente, in 1595, raised Manila to metropolitan seat). Ferrara become under the Vatican dominion on january 1598, a few months before these letters were written. To underline the importance of having recovered this city, Clemente went himself to the city, where he stayed between may and november of that year. The request of an altair, subject of the first letter, had been done by Antonio de Cordoba y Cardona, performative Spanish ambassador in Manila: it ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. English. 1599. Geneva?Tomson?Junius.
Impr. by the deputies of Christopher Barker 1599 [i.e., 1633 or later], London. At least five editions appeared with this 1599 imprint, almost none of which were actually printed that year. Darlow and Moule note, "The phenomena of the various editions described under the year 1599 . . . constitute one of the most curious problems in the bibliography of the English Bible." Clearly there was a demand (by English Puritans and by Pilgrims in the Low Countries and America, among others) for Geneva Bibles, with their strongly Protestant marginal notes, well after they could no longer be printed openly in London. Pocock is of the opinion that recognizing this, Robert Barker "adopted" various early-17th-century Amsterdam and Dort Genevas; the back-dating and "back-attributing" on their title-pages would have associated these with and effectively disguised them as a popular and approved Bible printed by his own father, who died in that year and whose press he took over in the year following. STC attributes the whole array of editions purely to Stam in Amsterdam, who as publisher also would have benefitted from the fame and innocuousness in England of Christopher Barker's actual 1599 edition, though he would have had no reason in Dutch law for disguise. The text at hand here is the Geneva version (as usual, without the Apocrypha), with Tomson's revised New Testament and Junius's Revelation ? but this copy thoroughly muddies the waters with a title-page supplied from another copy, possibly even the genuine 1599 printing. The New Testament title-page also gives 1599 (as does the coloph … [Click Below for Full Description]

A few patches of light staining to vellum, slight biopredation at lower corners. 20th-century bookplates in front endpapers. Light foxing to titlepage, light dust soiling and few stray ink marks throughout. A very good copy, overall. The first edition in Italian, published the year after the Dutch and Latin editions, of a classic collection of three Dutch northern voyages during 1594-97 led by William Barents. Two issues of Giunio Parisio's translation were printed the same year, the present one by Giovanni Ciotti and the other by Porro. Veer's narrative of shipwreck off Nova Zembla and a terrible winter, in which a number of the crew froze to death and many others were eaten by polar bears, is a remarkable narrative of heroism in exploration. The fine engravings are reduced versions of the illustrations in the first edition. During the first voyage of 1594, the coast of Nova Zembla was successfully explored right up to its most northern point. The second voyage of 1595 proved a failure when pack ice blocked the passage of the ships between the Straits of Vaigatz and the mainland as late as the summer months, the result of an especially harsh Arctic winter. The third voyage, of 1596-97, which takes up the greater part of the volume, ranks as one of the greatest in the history of polar exploration. The expedition sailed in a northerly direction, discovering Bear Island and Spitzbergen. Unable t … [Click Below for Full Description]

STEFANONI, Pietro (ca. 1589-1642)
In folio (mm. 272x200). Dedica calcografica e 9 tavole incise in rame su 46. Aloni e fioriture, macchie e traccie d'uso. Quello che rimane dell'opera che completa comprenderebbe in totale 47 carte. Le tavole sono in gran parte sciolte. Legatura dei primi dell'Ottocento in mezza pelle con titolo in oro al dorso ("Stefanoni Scuola del Disegno"). Al contropiatto la nota "Rarissimo" e l'ex-libris "Roma Libreria di Luigi de Romanis Piazza di Sciarra sul Corso nº 319". Album modello, pubblicato dallo Stefanoni a Roma nel primo quarto del Seicento, che raccoglie 46 tavole non numerate, raffiguranti studi anatomici, ritratti, animali, ecc. L'album deriva in gran parte della raccolta, apparsa nello stesso periodo, di Luca Ciamberlano e Francesco Brizio intitolata Scuola perfetta per imparare a disegnare tutto il corpo humano e tratta da disegni di Agostino e Annibale Carracci. Le tavole recano in calce il monogramma "P.S.F." (Pietro Stefanoni fecit). Il ritratto di Santa Lucia Vergine è datato 1599. Una tavola reca il monogramma "IBC". Pietro Stefanoni (Valstagna, 1557 circa-Roma, 1642 circa), antiquario e collezionista, fu attivo a Roma come editore di stampe a partire dall'ultimo decennio del XVI secolo. Nel febbraio del 1595, Stefanoni ottiene dal cardinale Enrico Caetani la licenza di scavare nei sotterranei della propria abitazione, nei pressi del Portico d'Ottavia, per estrarre reperti archeologici. Nel 1598 Ulisse Aldrovandi lo ricorda come esperto di antichità nei suoi appunti e nelle sue opere. Al naturalista bolognese, Stefanoni inviò il celebre foglio raffigurante un … [Click Below for Full Description]

Deputies of Christopher Barker, London, 1599. Geneva version of the Bible. Quarto, bound in 18th century calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label, marbled endpapers, rebacked. An excellent example with the first woodcut title page lightly abraded at the upper right. Upon Queen Mary's accession in 1553, "publication of the English Bible ceased in England. Many Protestants who fled to the Continent were attracted to Calvin's Geneva. Among these exiles were eminent English Bible scholars who began work on a new translation" (The Bible: 100 Landmarks 62). First published in 1560, the Geneva Bible--often called the "Breeches Bible" for its unique rendering of Genesis 3:7--was "more scholarly than any previous translation. [It] achieved immediate popularity and exerted an extremely powerful influence. The Geneva Version included prefaces, maps and tables; and for the first time in an English Bible the verses were divided and numbered. It has been more properly called the Elizabethan family Bible, since it was this version which was the first to enter the English home" (PMM 83). "It became the textus receptus for the Puritan element in England. It was read by Shakespeare, Bunyan and the soldiers of the Civil War, and is thus of cardinal importance for its influence on the English language, literature and thought" (Great Books and Book Collectors, 105-8).

Wormhole against the blank lower edge of the last 7 gatherings. Front pastedown slightly damaged. Name on front flyleaf. Flyleaf in the rear removed. Paper somewhat yellowing) (Note: The origins of Latin panegyric lies in the ancient institution of the 'laudatio funebris', and developed into eulogy in relation both to deceased (laudatio) and to living persons (gratiarum actio). 'In the imperial age the 'gratiarum actio', formerly addressed to Senate and People was delivered in honour of the Emperor. (.) A collection of such speeches was found by Aurispa, 1433, in a Mainz manuscript (now lost) under the title 'XII Panegyrici Latini'', in which emperors are eulogized with ingenious and fantastic artificiallity.

'In the imperial age the 'gratiarum actio', formerly addressed to Senate and People was delivered in honour of the Emperor. (...) A collection of such speeches was found by Aurispa, 1433, in a Mainz manuscript (now lost) under the title 'XII Panegyrici Latini'', in which emperors are eulogized with ingenious and fantastic artificiallity. The collection is of considerable historical interest, and throws much light on 4th-century Gaul. It contained (I) Pliny's 'gratiarum actio' to Trajan on Pliny's elevation to the consulship.

ERASMUS DESIDERIUS
sumptibus haeredum Andreae Wecheli, 1599. Cm. 33,5, cc. (6), coll. 1984, cc. (102). Marchio tip., testatine e capilettera xil. Legatura sei-settecentesca in piena pelle, dorso a 6 nervi con titoli ms. Piccole mende alle cuffie, fenditure di pochi cm. alle cerniere, sporadici e lievi aloni, trascurabili macchiette. Esemplare nel complesso genuino e ben conservato. Gli Adagia rappresentano una sorta di manifesto umanistico, finalizzato al superamento della filosofia medievale attraverso l'esercizio storico-filologico. "A riprova dell'arditezza intellettuale che Erasmo dispiega nei sei proverbi lunghi del 1515 vale anche la durezza con la quale la censura intervenne su di essi. Non potendo fare a meno degli Adagia come repertorio di erudizione e di cultura classica, l'Italia post-tridentina decise di rielaborarli a proprio uso e consumo. Ad avallare l'erudizione espurgata e quasi ad assumerne la paternità, - il nome del vero autore doveva sprofondare nell'oblio, insieme con tutti quegli eretici e luterani ai quali veniva allora accomunato - fu chiamato Paolo Manuzio.... questa metamorfosi dell'editore del 1508 nel censore del 1585 (o complice di censori) sintetizza efficacemente la parabola che la cultura italiana percorse durante il Cinquecento" (cfr. Silvana Seidel Menchi, Adagia, Torino, 1980, p. lx). Importante edizione in-folio non censurata e uscita dai celebri torchi di Wechel che nel Cinquecento stampò i principali testi politici europei. Cfr. Kvk; Adams E 466..
