        Satire op de hygiëne - Crispijn de Passe naar Hendrick Goltzius, ca. 1600.

      Worst maken; satire op de hygiëne, ?Jannot en Margot", kopergravure uit ca. 1600 door Crispijn de Passe.Het idee voor de scène komt van Hendrick Goltzius (?HGoltius jnve[n]t[or]?'), hetgeen zeer uitzonderlijk is in Goltzius? verder zeer sophisticated oeuvre. Een oudere vrouw (Margot) vult een darm en maakt een worst. Een man (Jannot) met een narrenkap op z'n rug legt een hand op haar schouder en wijst naar waar ze mee bezig is. Jannot lacht omdat zij bloedworst maakt in een weinig hygiënische mand en over het zakje voor haar gezicht dat zou moeten voorkomen dat haar neus in de worst druppelt. Margot antwoordt dat Jannot gek is, zij vindt zich zelf zeer wel hygiënisch en heeft ook het zwijn binnengelaten dat ze bij de haard laat zitten. Margot meent dat het zwijn het liefst bij Jannot wil zijn, Jannot is immers zo slim als een bloedworst (gemaakt van zwijn). De gevulde worst is een dubbelzinnige verwijzing naar ontlasting. De komische discussie tussen de twee gaat over de hygiëne op dat gebied.De nabij Venlo geboren Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1616) leerde het vak van glasschilder bij zijn vader Jan Goltz te Duisburg. Van 1574 tot 1576 kreeg hij les in de graveertechniek van de uit Haarlem uitgeweken dichter, graveur, theoloog en wijsgeer Dirck Volckertsz Coornhert te Xanten. In navolging van Coornhert vestigde hij zich in Haarlem, waar hij in 1582 een bloeiend atelier had. Samen met de Vlaamse schilder-theoreticus Karel van Mander en de schilder Cornelis Cornelisz richtte hij in Haarlem een ??Academy? op. In deze periode perfectioneerde Goltzius een extreem elegante stijl, beïnvloed door het maniërisme van Bartholomeus Spranger.In 1590-91 reisde hij naar Italië, waar hij enkele maanden in Rome verbleef en waar hij de beroemdste antieke beelden natekende. De kennismaking met de werken uit de oudheid en Renaissance betekende een ommekeer in Goltzius? stijl, die soberder en realistischer werd. Na zijn terugkeer in 1591 ontstonden zijn meest beroemde prenten, de zogenaamde ?Meisterstiche?', taferelen uit het leven van Maria gemaakt op de manier van oude meesters als Albrecht Dürer en Parmigianino. Tegen 1600 begon Goltzius ook te schilderen. Zijn schilderijen hebben meestal mythologische onderwerpen. Zijn tekeningen hebben belangrijk bijgedragen aan de ontwikkeling van de kunst in zijn tijd, vooral door zijn weergave van het landschap en de (naakt)figuur. Het Teylers Museum organiseerde in 2003 een grote overzichtstentoonstelling van het werk van Goltzius.De prentenuitgeverij van Crispijn de Passe (1564-1637) was bijzonder productief (ca. 14.000 prenten) met een grote variëteit aan onderwerpen en genres (onder meer produceerde hij geïllustreerde boeken in samenwerking met een boekdrukker, wat een tamelijk nieuw fenomeen was). De Passe hield het productieproces voor een groot gedeelte in eigen hand door zelf ook te graveren en ontwerpen te leveren; zijn drie tekenende en graverende kinderen werkten al jong in het bedrijf mee. Zij opereerden eerst vanuit Keulen, later vanuit Utrecht, met nauwe handelscontacten in Londen en Parijs en richtten zich op een internationale klantenkring.Referentie: New Hollstein Dutch XV, nr. 645; Crispijn de Passe and his progeny (1564-1670): a century of print production, door Ilja M.Veldman (2001), p.144 Er ligt een exemplaar van deze gravure in het RijksprentenkabinetPrijs: VERKOCHT.

        Romane Historie

      1600. First Edition . LIVY. The Romane Historie Written by T. Livius of Padua. Also, the Breviaries of L. Florus: with a Chronologie to the whole Historie: and the Topographie of Rome in old time. London: Adam Islip, 1600. Thick folio (8 by 13 inches), contemporary full paneled brown calf rebacked in calf-gilt, red morocco spine label, raised bands. $12,000.First edition in English of Livy's monumental history of Rome, translated by Philemon Holland, scarce in contemporary paneled calf.Titus Livius commenced his great history between 27 and 25 B.C., completing it only shortly before his death in A.D. 17. His genius lay in lively storytelling rather than critical history; his aim was to rekindle his fellow Romans' patriotic spirit by recounting their ancestors' heroic deeds. ""Livy's heroes were to revive again and again—in 18th-century Virginia and in Revolutionary Paris. There are still statues in the public parks of the founders of the American and French Republics clad in the togas or the armor of Cincinnatus or HoratiusÂ… Livy, not Virgil, gave Rome her epic"" (Rexroth, 92-93). ""This was the first of that stately array of folio translations of the classics which issued from the pens of Philemon Holland, the 'translator generall in his age"" (Pforzheimer 495). ""Holland's knowledge of Greek and Latin was accurate and profound, and his renderings are made in a vivid, familiar and somewhat ornamented English"" (Drabble, 469). The section on the ""Topographie of Rome in old time"" is translated from the work of J. Bartholomew Marlian. With woodcut-engraved title, initials, head- and tailpieces, woodcut portrait of Livy, and a woodcut-engraved portrait of Queen Elizabeth, to whom this edition is dedicated, on verso of title. Occasional mispagination as issued without loss of text; without initial blank. STC 16613. Brueggemann, 634. Harris, 94. Lowndes, 1374. Owner signature. Early inked marginalia.Interior with some leaves expertly cleaned; first two and several other leaves with expert paper restoration, including a bit of loss to one letter on title page; a few leaves with minor wormholing; expert restoration to boards.

        La Dafne.

      Florence, Giorgio Marescotti, 1600. - 4to. (24) pp. With armorial woodcut to title page and printer's device to verso of final leaf. Modern half vellum with handwritten spine title and marbled covers using old material. Exceptionally rare first publication of the libretto of the first opera in musical history, also the first opera libretto ever printed. The music by Jules Caccini and Jacopoto Peri, composed for the first performance on the occasion of a carnival soirée at the Palazzo Corsi in Florence in 1598, is lost. Ottavio Rinuccini (1562-1621), who also wrote the textbook for "Euridice", was not an occasional librettist, but a court poet among who also composed sonnets and verse drama (cf. Honolka, Geschichte des Librettos, p. 22). The present libretto was probably published for a later performance at the Corsis' in August 1600 (for the history of genesis and performance history cf. the extensive account in Sonneck I, p. 339-345). Rinuccini's "Dafne" was again performed, with new music by Marco da Gagliano (1582-1643), in 1608: this score is preserved to this day, and the opera has been performed repeatedly on European stages throughout the 20th century. - Marescotti's fine woodcut device on the final page shows a naval emblem with the motto "Et vult et potest". Very occasional slight browning. On leaf C2v the setting error "DEL" has been corrected by "AL" pasted over the erroneous word. A fine copy. Edit 16, CNCE 29328. BM-STC Italian 556. Sartori 7015. Sonneck 339. Wotquenne 47. Wolffheim II, 1083. Fuld 61.

        Mosè e il serpente di bronzo

      1600. "Bulino, 1600, firmata in lastra, nel margine inferiore "Dominicus Custos Chalcographus humill. obseruantiae ergo DDdt. Augustae Vindelicor.". Da un soggetto di Ferraù Fenzoni. Nel margine inferiore, l'iscrizione latina: "Hic serpens animat, quos exanimauerat alter; Vnus ut innumeras mortes tulit anguis Auerni. Ore extincta salus quae fuit, aere redit. Sie vitas Agni mors tulit innumeras." ; "Reverendiss.o Principi et Dno. D. Wolfgago Praeposito ac Dno [...]lvacensi. Principi svo Clementiss.o" . Nell'immagine, in basso su una pietra, il nome dell'inventor "Ferav. Fenson. Fav. Inv" Ferraù Fenzoni. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""grande scudo con vaso e grappolo d'uva"", rifilata al rame, leggere pieghe centrali, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Margine inferiore rifilato con perdita dell'ultima riga di testo, contenente le parole "Anno Santo." La splendida opera riproduce l'omonimo affresco realizzato dall'artista Ferraù Fenzoni (1562-1645), detto anche Ferraù da Faenza, per decorare la Scala Santa. Il pittore faentino, tra il 1587 e il 1591, fu coinvolto, insieme ad una ventina di artisti, nella decorazione della Scala Santa, diretto da Domenico Fontana per volere di Sisto V. Il progetto prevedeva un ciclo di affreschi che ricopriva volte e pareti delle scale, annullando qualsiasi elemento murario e mirando al raggiungimento di una esclusiva rappresentazione pittorica. Del Mosè e il serpente di bronzo sono noti due disegni preparatori: uno conservato presso il Museo nazionale di Budapest, dove è rappresentato un nudo che si contorce cercando di liberarsi da un serpente, e l'altro nel Gabinetto dei disegni e stampe degli Uffizi, che presenta uno schizzo dell'intera composizione. La scena biblica rappresentata è basata sul Libro dei Numeri 21, 4-9, Dopo che Edom si rifiuta di far passare Israele, Mosè decide di aggirare da sud l'ostacolo, il popolo fa voto a Jahvé per poter vincere il re di Arad che sbarrava il cammino di Atarim. Nonostante la vittoria, Israele prese a lamentarsi ancora una volta con Mosè. Come punizione Dio invia loro dei serpenti velenosi che, coi loro morsi causarono la morte di diversi Israeliti. Il popolo allora supplicò Mosè di pregare il Signore per allontanare i serpenti.). Il Signore disse a Mosè: ""Fatti un serpente e mettilo sopra un'asta; chiunque, dopo essere stato morso, lo guarderà resterà in vita"". Mosè allora fece un serpente di rame e lo mise sopra l'asta; quando un serpente aveva morso qualcuno, se questi guardava il serpente di rame, restava in vita. L'affresco di Fanzoni fu tradotto a bulino anche da Francesco Villamena, nel 1597. Questa incisione del Custos fu realizzata in occasione dell'Anno Santo del 1600." "Engraving, 1600, inscribed at lower margin "Hic serpens animat, quos exanimauerat alter; Vnus ut innumeras mortes tulit anguis Auerni. Ore extincta salus quae fuit, aere redit. Sie vitas Agni mors tulit innumeras." ; "Reverendiss.o Principi et Dno. D. Wolfgago Praeposito ac Dno [...]lvacensi. Principi svo Clementiss.o. Dominicus Custos Chalcographus humill. obseruantiae ergo DDdt. Augustae Vindelicor." . After a subject by Ferraù Fenzoni. A very good impression, printed with tone on contemporary laid paper with ""large shield with a vase with grapes"", trimmed to the paltemark, light central folds, otherwise good conditions. Lacking the last line of text, with words "Anno Santo" (Holy Year). The scene reproduces the famous fresco by the artist Ferraù Fenzoni (1562-1645) for the Scala Santa. All the frescoes in the palace were executed by a group of painters directed by Giovanni Fontana. Two preparatory drawings of the fresco are known: one kept at the Budapest National Museum, which shows a naked writhing trying to get rid of a snake, and the other one in the Cabinet of Drawings and Prints of the Uffizi, that presents a sketch of the entire composition. The biblical scene represented is based on the book of Numbers 21: 4-9, In the biblical story, following their Exodus from Egypt, the Israelites set out from Mount Hor, where Aaron was buried, to go to the Red Sea. However they had to detour around the land of Edom. Frustrated and impatient, they complained against Yahweh and Moses, and in response God sent ""fiery serpents"" among them. For the sake of the ones who were repentant, Moses was instructed by God to erect a ""serpent of bronze"" which was used to heal those who looked upon it. Moses made a bronze snake and mounted it on a pole. The fresco was also engraved by Francesco Villamena in 1597. Custos' work was printed for the Holy Year 1600."

        [Album amicorum of Wilhelm Bökel junior].Stettin (Szczecin, Poland), Helmstedt, Jena, Leipzig, Groningen, Leiden and Rotterdam, 1616-1651. 4to. Manuscript on paper, with most entries in Latin, and mottos also in Greek, French and German. Title-page with an elaborate cartouche in coloured gouaches highlighted with gold, with "GVIELMVS BOCKELIVS/IVNIOR" in silver below his coat of arms and above a scene perhaps showing Lucretia. Further with 49 coloured gouaches highlighted with gold showing coats of arms, costumes and various scenes (some cut out and mounted on the album's leaves), a pen and ink wash drawing, 23 full-page engraved portraits, 18 full-page engraved views, an engraved image of Mercury, and 12 full-page engraved emblems. Modern gold-tooled calf, gold-tooled board edges, new endpapers.

      For Wilhelm Bökel: Georg Erler (ed.), Die jüngeren Matrikel der Universität Leipzig, vol. I, p. 37. Elaborately illustrated album amicorum of Wilhelm Bökel junior, with contributions by eminent scholars and noblemen. Bökel (or Böckelius), born in Stendal (Germany) ca. 1600, was the son of a physician and studied law in Stettin (Szczecin in Poland), Helmstedt, Jena and Leipzig. Most of the contributions date from his time in Leipzig (1621-1624), but the album also includes entries from prominent noblemen from Pomerania and the Baltic region, such as Philip II, Duke of Pomerania, and Jacob Kettler, Duke of Courland and Semigallia. Most of the contributions are in Latin (with some mottoes in French, German and Greek) and 25 are illustrated with the coat of arms of the contributor in coloured gouaches, highlighted with gold. The 23 engraved portraits, several by or after Lucas and Wolfgang Kilian, show European rulers and clergymen. Also included is a view of Venice in coloured gouaches, highlighted with gold, and another of a woman throwing herself on a sword, perhaps intended as Lucretia.Loosely inserted is a manuscript index and 4-page manuscript report on the album by Johannes Bodel Nijenhuis, noting that it was sold at auction in Leiden by C.C. van der Hoek on 3 March 1854, as well as a copy of the report by C.W. van der Hoek, dated 30 March 1854. Some soiling and an occasional leaf with a few letters of the text or the edge of a drawing very slightly shaved, but otherwise in very good condition.

      - For Wilhelm Bökel: Georg Erler (ed.), Die jüngeren Matrikel der Universität Leipzig, vol. I, p. 37. Elaborately illustrated album amicorum of Wilhelm Bökel junior, with contributions by eminent scholars and noblemen. Bökel (or Böckelius), born in Stendal (Germany) ca. 1600, was the son of a physician and studied law in Stettin (Szczecin in Poland), Helmstedt, Jena and Leipzig. Most of the contributions date from his time in Leipzig (1621-1624), but the album also includes entries from prominent noblemen from Pomerania and the Baltic region, such as Philip II, Duke of Pomerania, and Jacob Kettler, Duke of Courland and Semigallia. Most of the contributions are in Latin (with some mottoes in French, German and Greek) and 25 are illustrated with the coat of arms of the contributor in coloured gouaches, highlighted with gold. The 23 engraved portraits, several by or after Lucas and Wolfgang Kilian, show European rulers and clergymen. Also included is a view of Venice in coloured gouaches, highlighted with gold, and another of a woman throwing herself on a sword, perhaps intended as Lucretia.Loosely inserted is a manuscript index and 4-page manuscript report on the album by Johannes Bodel Nijenhuis, noting that it was sold at auction in Leiden by C.C. van der Hoek on 3 March 1854, as well as a copy of the report by C.W. van der Hoek, dated 30 March 1854. Some soiling and an occasional leaf with a few letters of the text or the edge of a drawing very slightly shaved, but otherwise in very good condition.

        De magnete, magneticisque corporibus, et de mango magnete tellure; Physiologia nova, plurimis & argumentis, & experimentis demonstrate.

      London: Peter Short, 1600. First edition of "the first major English scientific treatise based on experimental methods of research. Gilbert was chiefly concerned with magnetism; but as a digression he discusses in his second book the attractive effect of amber (electrum), and thus may be regarded as the founder of electrical science. He coined the terms 'electricity,' 'electric force' and 'electric attraction.' His 'versorium', a short needle balanced on a sharp point to enable it to move freely, is the first instrument designed for the study of electrical phenomena, serving both as an electroscope and electrometer. He contended that the earth was one great magnet; he distinguished magnetic mass from weight; and he worked on the application of terrestrial magnetism to navigation. Gilbert's book influenced Kepler, Bacon, Boyle, Newton and, in particular, Galileo, who used his theories [in the Dialogo] to support his own proof of the correctness of the findings of Copernicus in cosmology" (PMM). "Gilbert provided the only fully developed theory ... and the first comprehensive discussion of magnetism since the thirteenth century Letter on the Magnet of Peter Peregrinus" (DSB). Although this book does appear with some regularity on the market, copies such as ours in fine condition and in untouched contemporary bindings are rare. Dibner Heralds of Science 54; Grolier/Horblit 41; Heilbron, Electricity in the 17th and 18th Centuries, pp. 169-179; Norman 905; PMM 107; STC 11883; Wellcome 2830. "During the fifteenth century the widespread interest in navigation had focused much attention on the compass. Since at that time the orientation of the magnetic needle was explained by an alignment of the magnetic poles with the poles of the celestial sphere, the diverse areas of geography, astronomy, and phenomena concerning the lodestone overlapped and were often intermingled. Navigators had noted the variation from the meridian and the dip of the magnetic needle and had suggested ways of accounting for and using these as aids in navigation. The connection between magnetic studies and astronomy was less definite; but so long as the orientation of the compass was associated with the celestial poles, the two studies were interdependent ... "Gilbert divided his De magnete into six books. The first deals with the history of magnetism from the earliest legends about the lodestone to the facts and theories known to Gilbert's contemporaries ... In the last chapter of book I, Gilbert introduced his new basic idea which was to explain all terrestrial magnetic phenomena: his postulate that the earth is a giant lodestone and thus has magnetic properties ... The remaining five books of the De magnete are concerned with the five magnetic movements: coition, direction, variation, declination and revolution. Before he began his discussion of coition, however, Gilbert carefully distinguished the attraction due to the amber effect from that caused by the lodestone. This section, chapter 2 of book II, established the study of the amber effect as a discipline separate from that of magnetic phenomena, introduced the vocabulary of electrics, and is the basis for Gilbert's place in the history of electricity ... "Having distinguished the magnetic and amber effects, Gilbert presented a list of many substances other than amber which, when rubbed, exhibit the same effect. These he called electrics. All other solids were nonelectrics. To determine whether a substance was an electric, Gilbert devised a testing instrument, the versorium. This was a small, metallic needle so balanced that it easily turned about a vertical axis. The rubbed substance was brought near the versorium. If the needle turned, the substance was an electric; if the needle did not turn, the substance was a nonelectric. "After disposing of the amber effect, Gilbert returned to his study of the magnetic phenomena. In discussing these, Gilbert relied for his explanations on several assumptions: (1) the earth is a giant lodestone and has the magnetic property; (2) the magnetic property is due to the form of the substance; (3) every magnet is surrounded by an invisible orb of virtue which extends in all directions from it; (4) pieces of iron or other magnetic materials within this orb of virtue will be affected by and will affect the magnet within the orb of virtue; and (5) a small, spherical magnet resembles the earth and what can be demonstrated with it is applicable to the earth. This small spherical magnet he called a terrella ... "In discussing coition Gilbert was careful to distinguish magnetic coition from other attractions. For him magnetic coition was a mutual action between the attracting body and the attracted body. At the beginning of the De magnete he explained several terms that were necessary for understanding his work. One of these was "magnetic coition," which he said he "used rather than attraction because magnetic movements do not result from attraction of one body alone but from the coming together of two bodies harmoniously (not the drawing of one by the other)" (P. Fleury Mottelay, William Gilbert of Colchester ... on the Great Magnet of the Earth, 1893, p. liv) ... "Book III of the De magnete contains Gilbert's explanation of the orientation taken by a lodestone that is balanced and free to turn, that is, the behavior of the magnetic compass ... the orientation of the compass was simply an alignment of the magnetic needle with the north and south poles of the earth. Gilbert gave numerous demonstrations of this with the terrella as well as directions for magnetizing iron. "By the end of the sixteenth century, navigators were well acquainted with variations from the meridian in the orientation of the compass. Thus, after discussing orientation, Gilbert turned in book IV to the variations in that orientation. Here he again used the comparison of the phenomena that can be demonstrated with the terrella and those that occur on the surface of the globe. Just as a very small magnetic needle will vary its orientation if the terrella on which it is placed is not a perfect sphere, so will the compass needle vary its orientation on the surface of the earth according to the proximity or remoteness of the masses of earth extending beyond the basic spherical core. Also, the purity of these masses (the amount of primary magnetic property retained by them) will affect the orientation of the compass just as stronger lodestones have greater attractive powers than weaker ones. "The next magnetic movement that Gilbert discussed was declination, the variation from the horizontal. This phenomenon had been described by Robert Norman in his book on magnetism, The New Attractive (1581). Although Norman had also given an effective means of constructing the compass needle so that it would not dip but would remain parallel to the horizontal, he had made no attempt to account for this strange behavior. As with the other magnetic effects of the compass, Gilbert explained declination in terms of the magnetic property of the earth and the experiments with the terrella. The small needle placed on the terrella maintained a horizontal position only when placed on the equator. When moved north or south of this position, the end of the needle closer to one pole of the terrella dipped toward that pole. The amount of dip increased as the needle was moved nearer the pole, until it assumed a perpendicular position when placed on the pole. A compass on the earth, according to Gilbert, behaved in a similar manner. "In discussing the variations from the meridian and the horizontal, Gilbert suggested practical applications of his theory. Navigators of the period were concerned with determining the longitude and latitude of their positions on the open seas. Since the deviation from the meridian was constant at a given point, Gilbert thought that if the seamen would record these variations at many points, an accurate table of variation for various positions could be compiled and the problem would be solved. He included detailed instructions for the construction of the instruments necessary for this task ... "The final book of the De magnete, book VI, deals with rotation and in this section Gilbert expounded his cosmological theories. Without discussing whether the universe is heliocentric or geocentric, Gilbert accepted and explained the diurnal rotation of the earth. From the time of Peter Peregrinus' Letter on the magnet, written in the thirteenth century, rotation had been considered one of the magnetic movements. The assumption was that a truly spherical, perfectly balanced lodestone, perfectly aligned with the celestial poles, would rotate on its axis once in twenty-four hours. Since the earth was such a lodestone, it would turn upon its axis in that manner and thus the diurnal motion of the earth was explained. The theory was taken from Peter's Letter; the application to the earth was Gilbert's addition ... Much of the criticism directed by Bacon and others against Gilbert's writing was based upon the sixth book of the De magnete, where Gilbert extended to the cosmos his magnetic theory and the results obtained from his experiments. "Throughout the De magnete, Gilbert discussed and usually dismissed previous theories concerning magnetic phenomena and offered observational data and experiments which would support his own theories. Most of the experiments are so well described that the reader can duplicate them if he wishes, and the examples of natural occurrences which support his theory are well identified. Where new instruments are introduced (for example, the versorium, to be used in identifying electrics), directions for their construction and use are included. The combination, a new theory supported by confirming evidence and demonstrations, is a pre-Baconian example of the new experimental philosophy which became popular in the seventeenth century" (DSB). Folio, pp. [xvi], 240, woodcut printer's device (McKerrow 119) on title, large woodcut arms of Gilbert on title verso, one woodcut folding plate, 88 woodcut illustrations and diagrams in text (4 full-page), ornamental woodcut headpieces and initials.

        The Principal Navigations, Voiages, Traffiques and Discoveries of the English Nation, made by Sea or over-land, to the remote and farthest distant quarters of the Earth...

      London: George Bishop, 1598-1600. Three volumes in two, folio, woodcut historiated and decor ative initials and head-and tail-pieces; a most attractive set in early nineteenth-century English dark blue straight-grain morocco, spines panelled in gilt between raised bands incorporating anchor devices, sides panelled in blind and gilt, all edges gilt, rose-pink silk flyleaves and doublures within blue morocco outer borders. A handsome set of the best edition of one of the classics of travel literature and the first English collection of voyages; Hakluyt's collection will always be the primary source for the history of early English exploration, as well as one of the gems of Elizabethan letters: "It is difficult to overrate the importance and value of this extraordinary collection of voyages" (Sabin); "an invaluable treasure of nautical information which has affixed to Hakluyt's name a brilliancy of reputation which time can never efface or obscure" (Church).Hakluyt himself was the first lecturer on modern geography and one of the leading spirits of Elizabethan maritime expansion (PMM). The work is devoted to New World discoveries and the British colonisation of America, and although published a few years before the Dutch voyage of the Duyfken to the west coast of Cape York in 1605, it is significant that by the time of this edition, Hakluyt was able to include the first tentative forays of the English into the South Seas, whether round Cape Horn or through the Straits of Magellan. As a result, Hakluyt's book represents the pinnacle of Elizabethan geography, but is also among the earliest published works on British expansion into the Pacific.This is the much preferred second edition, greatly expanded from the single-volume original version of 1589 and effectively a new work - 'the first edition contained about 700,000 words, while the second contained about 1,700,000... This was indeed Hakluyt's monumental masterpiece, and the great prose epic of the Elizabethan period. In design it was similar to the first edition: the first volume concerned voyages to the north and northeast; the second volume, to the south and southeast; the third volume, to America. All sections were expanded; the first two were approximately doubled and the American part was almost tripled.'Much that was new and important was included: the travels of Newbery and Fitch, Lancaster's first voyage, the new achievements in the Spanish Main, and particularly Ralegh's tropical adventures. At first sight the expanded work appears a vast, confused repository, but closer examination reveals a definite unity and a continuous thread of policy. The book must always remain a great work of history, and a great sourcebook of geography, while the accounts themselves constitute a body of narrative literature which is of the highest value in understanding the spirit and the tendencies of the Tudor age... ' (Penrose, p. 318).The third volume of 1600 includes most of the New World material, not only cataloguing many of the early American discoveries, but also representing the cusp of early voyages into the Pacific, notably in the section entitled "A Catalogue of divers English voyages, some intended and some performed to the Streights of Magellan, the South Sea... to the headland of California, and to the Northwest... ". Printed here are not only reports of the voyages of Drake and several of his compatriots, but also an early account of the important 1586 voyage of Thomas Cavendish, and discussions of major voyages which were destined for the South Seas but failed to round Cape Horn, including those of Edward Fenton (intended for China), Robert Withrington, and the failed 1591 second voyage of Cavendish.Volume 1 of this copy has the first state of the title-page (dated 1598 rather than 1599 and mentioning Essex's "famous victorie" at Cadiz in 1596). The seven leaves of text describing the affair were excised from most copies of the book at Queen Elizabeth's behest, following the disgrace of the Earl of Essex; here, as sometimes, they are present in the version printed to complete the censored copies, probably in about 1720. As with virtually all copies, the book does not have a world map which had been intended to accompany the third volume but was only actually issued with a handful of copies.This is an excellent copy of this great book, with engraved armorial bookplates of an earlier collector David Hodgson, and later bookplates of G.W. Hartley. Some slight staining; slight wear to joints.

Woodcut printer's device on title-page, 7 full-page illustrations, errata on final leaf. Nineteenth century half sheep with gilt letting piece (rebacked). Provenance: Library of Hugh Selbourne. A fine, wide-margined set, collated complete. ----I. Norman 751: DSB IV, p.509-11; H. B. Adelmann, The Embyological Treatises of Hieronymus Fabricius of Aquapendente, 1942. FIRST EDITION of the author's treatise on embryology which summarizes his investigations of the fetal development of many animals, including man, contained the first detailed description of the placenta and opened the field of comparative embryology. He also gave the first full account of the larynx as a vocal organ and was first to demonstrate that the pupil of the eye changes its size. "De formato foetu, illustrates the way in which nature provides for the necessities of the fetus during its intrauterine life. It treats specifically of the umbilical vessels, the urachus, the fetal membranes, fetal waste products, the 'carnea substantia' (placenta), and the uterus. The treatise includes comparative studies of morphological details in dogs, cats, rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, sheep, cattle, goats, roebuck, horses, pigs, birds, sharks, and man. Fabrici's description of the umbilical cord and its vessels is accurate, as is his differentiation of the action of the umbilical vessels in various animals; he also provides an adequate description of the right and left atria of the heart, the foramen ovale and the ductus arteriosus, the vena cava, and the pulmonary vein in the fetus" (DSB IV, p.510). II. Norman 752; Garrison-M. 466; DSB IV, p.509-10; NLM/Krivatsy 3826; Osler 2559; Nissen, Zool. 1328; Wood 1621; H. B. Adelmann, The Embyological Treatises of Hieronymus Fabricius of Aquapendente, 1942. FIRST EDITION. Although published after Fabrici's death, De formatione ovi et pulli is his earliest surviving treatise on embryology. The work is divided into two parts, of which the first deals with the formation of the egg and the second with the generation of the chick within the egg. The plates include the first printed illustrations of the development of the chick." (Norman). De formatione ovi et pulli is divided into two parts. The first, in three chapters, deals with the formation of the egg. The first chapter discusses the three bases of animal generation given by Aristotle (the egg, the seed, and spontaneously from decomposing materials). In the second chapter of De formatione ovi et pulli Fabrici states two functions of the 'uterus': the formation of the egg and, immediately thereafter, its nutrition. The chapter closes with a discussion of the formation of the shell; the third chapter concerns the usefulness of the uterus. The second part of the treatise, also in three chapters, is concerned with the generation of the chick within the egg and begins with a description of the eggs of various species. Many of the notions and arguments set forth in the first part of the book are then summarized. The second chapter of the second part deals with the three basic functions of the egg: the formation, growth, and nutrition of the chick. The last chapter of the treatise returns to teleology to consider the utility of both the egg and the semen of the rooster. De formatione ovi et pulli is illustrated with seven plates, of which only the first three are labeled. The last five plates are the most significant since they represent the first printed figures of the development of the chick, beginning with the third or fourth day of incubation (DSB IV, p.509-10). Very Good.

Iulius Casserius (1552-1616) was professor at the University of Padua from 1609 until his death in 1616. "In 1609, the chair of surgery and anatomy was subdivided into one chair of anatomy, which remained to Fabricius, and one of surgery, which was assigned to Iulius Casserius from Piacenza. However, as happened in the past, Casserio also replaced Fabricius in anatomical demonstrations when the older master was absent or ill. Casserius' family was very poor and he moved to Padua probably as a servant to some student (Sterzi, 1910; Riva et al., 2001). In Padua, he became assistant to Hieronymus Fabricius ab Aquapendente [...] However, Casserius took his degree in medicine and philosophy, probably in about 1580 [...] and first began to give private lectures on anatomy. Fierce rivalry developed between Fabricius and Casserius, and finally led to the separation of a chair of anatomy and a chair of surgery [...] In 1614, Casserius was also made a Knight of St. Mark. (A. Porzionato et al., The Anatomical School of Padua. The Anatomical Record, Vol. 295, no. 6, 2012, p.908). De Vocis is the first book that "focuses on studies of the vocal apparatus of mammals (dogs, cats, cows, etc.), birds, amphibians, and insects such as the grasshopper, cicada and the like. It also provides the first accurate description of the laryngeal muscles and nerves. The second book features the structure of the ear, and "contains the first clear description of the ossicles, comparative studies of the auditory ossicles of various animals, and anatomical descriptions of the inner ear that were far more accurate than any given before, as well as a detailed account of the external ear muscles." (Grolier/Medicine). De Vocis is "a masterpiece of book illustration and the most beautiful book ever published on the ear and throat in man and in lower animals". "Casseri [...[ investigated the structure of the auditory and vocal organs in most of the domestic animals. The book includes a description of the larynx more accurate than that of any previous author" (Garrison-Morton)."Medical historians rank the accuracy and artistry of the illustrations in this and other works of Casserio in the same category as those of Vesalius, with Casserio setting the standard in copperplates as Vesalius had done with woodcuts" (Eimas, Heirs of Hippocrates).

Very rare first edition of a religious emblem book by the eccentric millenarian theologian Petrus Serrarius (1600-1669). It contains 45 emblems (measuring ca. 75 x 48 mm) with engraved texts underneath and an explanatory letterpress poem on the facing pages. The work is divided into three parts with fifteen emblems each. The emblems are probably engraved by the publisher Savry after the plates Boëtius à Bolswert made for Herman Hugo's Pia desideria, the most influential religious emblem book published in the Netherlands (Antwerp, 1624). Serrarius was born in Flanders and lived for many years in Amsterdam calling himself "priest of the General Church". He was a friend of Comenius and wrote many controversial theological works leading to a conflict with the official church and especially with professor Maresius of Groningen University. With library stamp on title-page. Slightly browned with some occasional small spots and thumbing, bookblock weak in binding and red colour on the woodcut on last page. Binding scratched on boards. Otherwise a good copy.

        Plantarum tum patriarum, tum exoticarum, in Walachria, Zeelandiae insula, nascentium synonymia.Middelburg, Richard Schilders, 1610. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      - Arendts, supp. 148; Kuijlen & Wijnands, pp. 32-34; Pritzel 7027. First edition of a record of about 1600 plants that could be found on the island Walcheren (including the cities of Middelburg, Vlissingen and Veere) in Zeeland, connected to the mainland since 1871. It covers not only the native species, but also garden plants brought from other regions and even many exotic plants in Middelburg's important botanical gardens, including 4 pages on tulips and a page on tobacco, cultivated at Veere on Walachria before any other Dutch site. It therefore serves as an important primary source for Dutch botany as the Netherlands was establishing its position as the leader in that field. The plants are arranged alphabetically, with alternative names used by other authors and in various languages, as well as references to the literature. The concordance of plant names also makes the book "indispensable for a modern reconstruction of the old catalogues" (Kuijlen et al.) and shows the growing problems of nomenclature in the early seventeenth century before Caspar Bauhin began to normalize plant names. With a small tear in the title-page and some worm holes in the upper outside corner, slightly affecting an occasional page number, but not touching the text. Otherwise in very good condition. The binding is slightly dirty but also very good.

      große Original-Lithographie von Gresset (im Stein signiert) nach einem Gemälde von Matter auf rückseitig unbedrucktem schweren Büttenblatt, bildliche Darstellung ca. 32 x 58,5 cm, Blattgröße ca. 43 x 63 cm, im breiten Blattrand außerhalb der bildlichen Darstellung einige wenige alt hinterklebte Einrissse und etwas Alterspatina, ansonsten sauber und bemerkenswert gut erhalten, sehr selten und für uns anderenorts weder antiquarisch noch in Museen oder Bibliotheken nachweisbar - This most famous old view of the city of "Thann in the year 1600" is already known from a reproduction on French postcards of the 1920s, but the artist and the printer have remained unknown so far. Since we discovered the original a few years ago, we know that this impressive view of Thann is a large lithography painted by F.J. Gresset, a brilliant lithographer and printmaker with his office in Thann itself, painted on stone after a drawing of an unknown artist named "Matter".

      1600. "Pianta prospettica della città edita a Siena da Matteo Florimi. Descrizione tratta da Bifolco-Ronca, ""Cartografia e topografia italiana del XVI secolo. Catalogo ragionato delle opere a stampa"" (pubblicazione prevista per febbraio 2018). Titolo & iscrizioni In alto il titolo SENA VETUS CIVITAS VIRGINIS. In basso a sinistra l'imprint editoriale Matteo flor. for. Lungo il margine inferiore, legenda numerica di 119 rimandi a luoghi e monumenti notabili, distribuita su diciassette colonne. Carta priva di orientazione e scala grafica. Acquaforte e bulino mm 380x512. Notizie storico critiche Pianta assonometrica della città, derivante dal modello disegnato da Francesco Vanni e pubblicato da Peter de Jode nel 1597. Il foglio edito da Matteo Florimi ripropone, in forma semplificata e più approssimativa nel segno, l'immagine Vanni-De Jode, di cui riutilizza anche il titolo. Nella legenda, ai riferimenti toponomastici direttamente derivati dal modello, aggiunge anche le porte, che nella prima erano indicate direttamente sulla città. Dati i rapporti di collaborazione esistenti tra Florimi e i due autori della pianta grande, è possibile che la data di edizione delle due sia abbastanza ravvicinata. Sempre nel 1597 Florimi pubblica le lastre sulla vita di Santa Caterina, incise dal De Jode su disegno del Vanni. E' probabile quindi che la pianta di Siena preceda cronologicamente, seppur di poco, le altre piante di città pubblicate dallo stesso Florimi, databili tra la fine del XVI e gli inizi del XVII secolo. Stati & edizioni: non sono note ristampe, tuttavia alcuni esemplari della mappa, di tiratura più tarda, possono essere attribuiti ai torchi dell'editore senese Pietro Petrucci, che acquisì gran parte delle lastre del Florimi.

        LA CITTA DI NAPOLI GENTILE

      1600. "Pianta prospettica della città edita a Siena da Matteo Florimi. Descrizione tratta da Bifolco-Ronca, ""Cartografia e topografia italiana del XVI secolo. Catalogo ragionato delle opere a stampa"" (pubblicazione prevista per febbraio 2018). Titolo & iscrizioni In alto al centro il titolo LA CITTA DI NAPOLI GENTILE. Lungo il margine inferiore, legenda numerica di 75 rimandi a luoghi e monumenti notabili distribuita su tredici colonne, cui segue nell'ultimo riquadro l'imprint editoriale Matteo Florimj for. Jn Siena. Al centro della carta nel mare una schematica rosa dei venti il nord-ovest in alto, e evidenziata da un compasso la scala grafica Canne 100 pari a mm 28. Acquaforte e bulino mm 396x525. Notizie storico critiche La pianta della città di Napoli di Matteo Florimi è, come nello stile dell'editore attivo a Siena, una fedele contraffazione di un prodotto antecedente. In questo caso deriva dalla pianta di Mario Cartaro (1579) e non dalla successiva di Duchetti, come dimostrano i 75 rimandi della legenda, identici alla pianta del Cartaro e non a quella del Duchetti che invece ne conta 77. Il Florimi si limita solo a cambiare la veste grafica della pianta, conformandola ai modelli figurativi che si andavano affermando nei primo Seicento. In particolar modo cambia il modo di rappresentare il mare; al sobrio puntinato del Rinascimento viene contrapposto questo fitto tratteggio che simboleggia quasi un moto ondoso. La scritta relativa al Mar Mediterraneo è grande e svolazzante, più simile ai tipi nordici. Del resto l'incisione della lastra è attribuita ad Arnold van Scherpenseel, meglio noto col nome italianizzato di Arnoldo de Arnoldi, stretto collaboratore del Florimi per un breve, ma intenso e produttivo, periodo (1600-1602). Stati & edizioni: non sono note ristampe, tuttavia alcuni esemplari della mappa, di tiratura più tarda, possono essere attribuiti ai torchi dell'editore senese Pietro Petrucci, che acquisì gran parte delle lastre del Florimi.

        IL VERO DISEGNO DELLA FORTEZZA DI CANISIA

      1600. Pianta prospettica della città di Nagykanizsa (in italiano Canissa) durante l'assedio del 1601. Pubblicata da Giovanni Orlandi nel 1602, l'opera è anche conosciuta attraverso questa ristampa del fiammmingo Henri van Schoel. Sebbene priva di data può essere ricondotta al 1609, anno nel quale l'Orlandi si trasferì a Napoli e cedette il suo enorme archivio calcografico all'editore fiammingo. Nagykanizsa nel 1601 fu stretta d'assedio dai Turchi e il duca di Mantova Vincenzo I Gonzaga partecipò all'impresa. La resistenza dei Turchi fu sfavorevole e il duca Vincenzo si ritirò. Stati & edizioni: 1°: con imprint Giovanni Orlandi le stampa a Pasquino l'anno 1602 in Roma. 2°: abraso l'indirizzo di Orlandi e la data. Imprint Henricus van Schoel formis. Bibliografia: a) Ganado (1994): VI, p. 200, n. 38. Censimento: 1°: Fano, Federiciana; Malta, National Library. 2°: Roma, Istituto Central per la Grafica (2). A bird's-eye view of the siege of Nagykanizsa, 1601, in the edition by Henri van Schoel. In 1601, a small Ottoman force held the fortress of Nagykanizsa in western Hungary against a much larger coalition army of the Habsburg Monarchy, while inflicting heavy losses on its besiegers. This battle was part of the Long War between the Ottoman Empire and the House of Habsburg, lasting from 1593 to 1606. The plate was published the first by Giovanni Orlandi in 1602. The van Shoel's edition, without date, probably was published around 1609, when Orlandi moved in Naples and sold his plates to the Flemish editor. Literature: Ganado (1994): VI, p. 200, n. 38.

Na Officina FERREYRIANA. M. DCC. XXV. [1725]. In 4º gr. (de 30x21 cm) com [4], 468 pags. Encadernação do final séc. XX inteira de pele ao gosto da época. Exemplar com 2 ex-libris oleográficos armoriados coevos sobre a folha de rosto. Rara 4ª edição portuguesa editada por Miguel Lopes Ferreira. Bela impressão barroca estampada sobre papel muito alvo e com grande sonoridade. A folha de rosto impressa a duas cores, apresenta ao centro um curioso monograma tipográfico [F.M.P.?]. O texto a foi impresso a duas colunas, adornada com vinhetas tipográficas e capitulares xilográficas. A Peregrinação é uma obra de caráter novelesco, ímpar na literatura mundial pelo seu estilo, uma obra de arte de grande classe, uma das maiores criações romanescas produzidas na Península Ibérica por um autor de elevada sensibilidade artística e com notável capacidade para criar personagens, espectáculos e pequenas novelas inseridas na narrativa principal. É a primeira obra a nível mundial que transmite a tomada de consciência da unidade do mundo, através da sua diversidade, consequência do encontro de civilizações resultante dos descobrimentos portugueses. Baseada na vasta e rica experiência obtida pelo autor na sua aventurosa vida, durante os anos de juventude e nas viagens pelo Oriente, a sua apresentação do mundo exótico oriental e da reacção dos portugueses de quinhentos ao ambiente asiático, apesar de não ser factualmente exacta, tem muito de verdade. Foram estas características que a tornaram um bestseller mundial no século XVII e XVIII, (6 edições castelhanas, 4 inglesas, 6 francesas, 6 holandesas, 2 alemãs) pois era a primeira informação de conjunto sobre o Extremo Oriente, com o atractivo especial de apresentar essa informação sob uma forma romanesca, que conseguia atingir públicos mais vastos do que os tratados históricos e descrições oficiais. A obra tem afinidades com D. Quixote de Cervantes e com a novela picaresca espanhola, apesar de ao contrário desta não ser só duramente sarcástica e negativa, mas conter, além disso, sentimentos positivos e a esperança num aperfeiçoamento dos seres humanos. A obra de Mendes Pinto é uma percussora do Orientalismo e do Exotismo muito em voga nos séculos XIX e XX, mas tem a superioridade de não ter só um aspecto turístico, distanciado, característico das referidas tendências, tem, pelo contrário, uma aproximação de grande inteligência, sensibilidade e receptividade a estas novas civilizações. A Peregrinação inclui numerosas críticas indirectas à mentalidade e a comportamentos negativos dos portugueses tal como o espirito de casta levada a extremos, veja-se a história dos portugueses a cumprir trabalhos forçados na construção
