        Theses de hasione et hasibili qualitate [.].

      No place, c. 1600. - 4to. Latin ms. (black and red ink) on paper. (12) pp. Disbound. Contemporary ms. copy of this mock disputation which spawned an entire genre of "hare literature", also translated into German. "The early years of the last decade of the 16th century saw the publication of a pamphlet dressed up as an academic disputation, entitled 'Theses de hasione et hasibili qualitate'. It bears no place or year of printing; its author and publisher are unknown [.] The text, written in a precise and almost elegant Latin, is too critical to be regarded as a mere student prank. The author, it would seem, was probably a witty scholar rather than a student, one endowed with a sense of humour but who first of all wished to show up the deficiencies of his times, thus contributing to the popular genre of fool's literature" (cf. Lindner 288). By 1741 the work had been republished at least 25 times. - Browned throughout due to paper; some edge defects. T. p. ruled in red. Cf. Erman/Horn I, 7416.

        Prima Parte della Arithmetica

      Brescia, Vicenzo Sabbio 1600 - RARE FIRST AND ONLY EARLY EDITION -------------------FIRST EDITION, Folio. Pp (xviii) 412 (iv). Italic letter within printed double-line border,numerous printed mathematical calculations in text. Title within elegant architectural border, large medallion portrait of the author aged 48 at foot, contemp ms '40' beneath. Fine engraved portrait of the dedicatee Christopher Papa of Nuremberg with woodcut initial and ornamental headpiece in next, further woodcut initials and ornaments. Contemp. printed correction slip pasted to contents table, very occasional early ink marginalia and corrections, prob of Antonio Orsetti, his contemp. autograph on fly. Slight age yellowing, prelim blank with oil marks, a very good, clean, well-margined copy in contemp. vellum over boards.----------------------------------Rare first and only early edition of this handsomely produced, important, arithmetical textbook devoted to practical and commercial arithmetic and a leader in its field. Although described as 'Prima Parte' it is in fact the only part ever printed. Zuchetta was a mathematician from Genoa; in his preface he apologizes to the reader for writing in his provincial 'Genoese' rather than the by now general Tuscan. "The 'Prologo' is a curious dissertation on the 'Arti Scienze, & altro,' with some ninety-eight arguments to show the need for arithmetic on the part of all classes of humanity. The farmer, the musician, the thief, the cook, the prelate, all are shown to have need of number; and Nature, Intelligence and even God himself make use of it. The book presupposes a knowledge of the arithmetic of integers, and opens with a treatment of fractions. The rule of three, in all of its forms, and with the most unbusinesslike numbers, is then discussed at great length and this is followed by various complications of the Regoladel Cattaino, 'cosi detta da gli Arabi inventori di quello, ch'in lingua nostra significa falso posizione'. The latter part of the book [everything after p. 175] treats of such topics as partnership, barter and alligation."(Smith, cit. infra) Much of the text deals with mercantile transactions, especially those involving more than one currency and tables of exchange rates are given for all the major trading centres likely to be of interest to Italian merchants - a full page is given of the currency rates in London, 'sterlini' against the principal Italian currencies. Apart from its obvious mathematical interest (though it produced or developed no new theories) the work is obviously of considerable interest to the social, economic and legal historian. Antonio Orsetti evidently had a significant library, particularly of scientific and mathematical works, as an appreciable number can still be traced. He was clearly acquiring quite systematically in the first part of the 17th C, regrettably however we have discovered nothing more about him. Scevolini Domenico, mathematician of XVI century was one of the last and most thoughtful proponents of judicial astrology in Italy before the suppression of the art by the index and the inquisition.-----------------------BM STC It. p. 745. Brunet V 1544 "seule partie publiée". Smith, Rara Arithmetica pp. 425-26 (reprod. t-p). Not in Kress or Goldsmith's. Riccardi I (ii) 674 "rarissimo vol. in bel. carat. corsivo.é apprezzto come uno dei migliori trattati di arithmetica mercantile." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Collection of Japanese Woodblock Prints (Ori Ehon) (Ukiyo-E)

      - Red decorative cloth over boards, royal folio (13-7/8 x 9-3/4 inches [35.3 x 24.7 cm]) containing well over 100 feet (54 feet each side) of mid 19th to early 20th century Japanese prints with 40 singles, 3 diptychs, and 28 triptychs in an ORI EHON (ORI - folding; E - picture; HON - book). With a good selection of different artists such as Yoshitoshi - Moonlight on the Ruin and a variety of Kabuki actors also being well represented along with some early Manga. Colors are bright and unfaded with most prints showing good register. Occasional offsetting and minor soil, a few prints noted with tiny amount of insect damage under magnification. Please inquire for a complete set of photos and/or a detailed description of individual prints. "ehon - or 'picture books,' in Japanese. . are one of the true glories of Japanese art but are little known today, even in Japan, because of their great rarity . their breathtaking exuberance, sophisticated artistry, sensuality, unparalleled originality, intellectual gravity, playful spirit, and lightness of touch. Ehon are part of an incomparable 1,230-year-old Japanese tradition. Created by artists and craftsmen, most ehon also feature essays, poems, or other texts written in beautiful, distinctive calligraphy. They are by nature collaborations: visual artists, calligraphers, writers, and designers join forces with papermakers, binders, block cutters, and printers. The books they create are strikingly beautiful, highly charged microcosms of deep feeling, sharp intensity, and extraordinary intelligence.The earliest ehon were made as religious offerings or talismans, but the great flowering of ehon began in the early modern period (1600-1868) and has continued, with new media and new styles and subjects, to the present."

L6 verso contains Short's woodcut device and colophon dated 1600. Twentieth century blind ruled calf. Faint ink stains to the fore edge of some leaves and a small candle burn to the blank foot of D7. A very good copy. ESTC S 2504 with 2 locations in UK and 2 in USA. It is sometimes found bound with two other pseudo-Augustinian devotional works but from the number of separately bound copies of various editions listed by ESTC it must also have been available separately. Thomas Rogers (c.1553-1616) was vicar of Horringer, Suffolk. An active controversialist, he published a number of translations of popular religious texts, the best known being his translation of Thomas Kempis in 1580. He frequently claims that his translations are 'purged from divers superstitious points' or similar wording.

        Erster (-ander) Theil, aller Schrifften, Bücher unnd Tractätlein.

      Bruck an der Thaya, Druckerei des Prämonstratenserstiftes, 1599-1600. - Folio. 2 vols. With figural titble borders and 13 woodcuts in the text. (7), 663 [but: 661], (15) ff. (17), 546 [but: 545], (10) ff. Contemp. vellum; spines and covers attractively gilt; gilt supralibros. First edition of the collected works of the Tyrol Jesuit Scherer (1559-1605), rector of the Viennese college and a fervent preacher of counter-reformation. His polemics against Osiander, Heerbrand, and other Lutherans occasioned a long series of printed refutations. Scherer's writings prove that he was "ein rühriger, gewandter, schlagfertiger Schriftsteller [.] und sich zugleich durch einen für jene Zeit ganz vorzüglichen Stil auszeichnete [.] Darunter sind von bleibendem Werthe namentlich 'Neun und zwaintig Predigen . von Notis, Merck- und Kenn-Zeichen der wahren und falschen Kirchen', eine gründliche, durchaus praktische, für das Volk leicht verständliche Abhandlung über die Kirche" (Wetzer/W.). Part 2 contains (at the end) the famous children's catechism. - Printed at the first and only 16th and 17th century press in Bruck an der Thaya (Louckem pod Znojmem) in Moravia, established in 1595 by abbot Sebastian II from Baden near Vienna. The printer was probably Bartholomäus Albert Fuhrmann; until the press was closed in 1608, it produced merely 22 known works. - Title page with contemp. ms. note by Johann Rupert Hegemüller, to whom the author himself had presented the volumes as a gift. Later in the collection of the Austrian local historian Candid von Engelshofen (1803-66; with his library stamp and shelfmark on title page); then in the library of the Bohemian nobleman Franz Graf Thun-Hohenstein (1809-70; with his heraldic bookplate on the front pastedown). Last in the collection of the Austrian industrialist Dr. Friedrich Petrina (1911-2004; with his etched bookplate on front pastedown). - Title page with insignificant defects to upper edge. Spine of vol. 2 with slight defects to upper spine-end; attractive giltstamping largely oxydized. Altogether a fine and clean copy with interesting provenance.

        Loggie de Rafaele nel Vaticano (3 volumes in one), together with Rossi's Ager Puteolanus (for a total of four volume in one)

      Late 1600s; 1652 - A total of 64 leaves with plates depicint the Loggie designed by Raphael and then Rossi's (Roccio's) work. The works herein, designated by the dedicatee, are "D Nicolao Simonellio Picturae omniumq bonarum Artium Cultori eximio", with a total of 15 plates, including the title page; "Eminentissimo AC Reverendissimo Principi Camillo Maximo S.R.E. Cardinali Amplissimo Bonarum Artium omniumq Nobilium Disciplinarum Patrono ac Macenati Meritissimo", 43 scenes on 21 leaves, including title page; Serenissimo Principi Leopoldo Medici", 15 leaves including title; the Ager Puteolanus, 13 leaves, including a full page map. The oblong volume measures 16 by 11 inches, 41 by 28 cm. The calf of the boards has some cracks, scuffs, chips and edge losses, and while not entirely dessicated, it is not fresh. The ornamented spine is drier and suffers losses at the tips. The gutters have some minor starting in the upper reaches and the cords are revealed. Nonetheless the full calf binding, even in its compromised state, does complement the material well and is worth preserving. The free endpapers have crunch creases, both in the front and rear. Otherwise, the binding is tight internally, and the plate leaves, while they have some scattered minor soilage, are generally bright, crisp, clean and qualify this as a superior example of the works contained herein.

        Conibas regio cum vicinis gentibus - very early [1600 undated] map of central Canada

      America sive Novis Orbis [1600], Cologne - SCARCE TO RARE EDITION VERY EARLY MAP OF CENTRAL CANADA Size: 6.7 x 8.5 inches. 17.0 x 21.5 cm. Uncoloured.With wide margins. Paper very slightly age-toned. Very good condition. German text on verso. 1st German edition of this map."Wytfliet and Metellus produced the first separate printed maps of the Southern Hemisphere. Both are foundation maps of America and Australia. The Wytfliet is known to have been produced in 1597, the Metellus, which is much rarer and seldom available on the market, is usually dated 1598 but some scholars have argued the possibility that it may precede the Wytfliet. This interesting map is a slightly reduced version of Cornelis Wytfliet's 1597 map of the same title., The basic cartography derives from Gerard Mercator's world map of 1569, which first depicted a large body of water inland in the extreme north. There has been much speculation as to what this might refer to. It has been suggested that it could be a record of a voyage unknown to us that visited Hudson Bay, it could even be remnants of the Verrazano sea theory.This is an early [1600] printed map of present-day central Canada. Published in the German edition of JosÈ de Acosta's De Natura Nova Orbis, first published in Salamanca, 1588. Acosta was a Spanish Jesuit missionary, historian and cosmographer. The included maps, however, are attributed to Metellus. In the America sive Novis Orbis of 1600, he is named as the cartographer of the maps but, most probably, did not see their completion as he died in 1597. The work was finished by Matthias Quad.Reference: Kershaw #42 [Attributes: First Edition]

        De vocis auditusq organis historia anatomica

      Ferrara: Baldino, 1600-1601. <p>Beautifully Illustrated Classic of Comparative Anatomy</p><p>Casserio, Guilio (1552-1616). De vocis auditusque organis historia anatomica. Folio. 2 parts in 1 vol. [60], 191, 126, [2]pp. Fine and unusual engraved titlepage, portraits of Casserio and of the Duke of Parma, and 33 (of 34) exquisite anatomical plates, paginated in the text. Our copy is one of those printed with a blank verso 2M3 in part 2 instead of plate XII, considered by researchers to be an earlier issue; a facsimile of this plate is tipped in for continuity. [Ferrara: Victorio Baldino, 1600-1601.] 386 x 264 mm. Vellum c. 1601, spine and margin of back cover repaired, light wear. A little light browning and offsetting, occasional faint dampstains, otherwise a very good copy. </p><p>First Edition. Casserio was a student of Fabrici, and succeeded him in the chair of anatomy at the University of Padua. Like Fabrici, Casserio attempted to explain human anatomy by reference to the lower animals, and his De vocis, containing the first comparative studies of the vocal and auditory organs, represents one of the sixteenth century&#146;s most ambitious investigations in comparative anatomy. The work is divided into two treatises, on the anatomy of the larynx and on that of the ear. In the first, Casserio compared the human vocal apparatus to those of other mammals, birds, amphibians and even insects. He recognized the larynx to be the principal organ of voice, gave the first precise description of the cricoid-thyroid muscles and accurately depicted the superior and inferior laryngeal nerves, which he correctly assumed to originate from cranial nerves. He also was the first to understand the complex sound-producing organs on the abdomen of the cicada. In the second treatise, Casserio provided the first detailed comparative account of the auditory ossicles, the first adequate description of the mammalian osseous labyrinth, and the first representation of the ear of the fish&#151;this last all the more remarkable in that, up to this time, no one had believed fishes to possess a sense of hearing.</p><p>None of De vocis&#146;s full-page engravings, including the title engraving and portraits, are signed. The drawings for them have generally been attributed to the German painter and etcher Joseph Maurer, on the basis of a passage (cited in Choulant) in the treatise on the ear; however, recent research indicates that the engraved title and two portraits are most likely the work of Jacopo Ligozzi (1547-1626), who also illustrated specimens for the Bolognese naturalist Ulisse Aldrovandi. In accuracy and artistry, the anatomical illustrations rank with the woodcuts of Vesalius, and, like the Vesalian illustrations, they provided a model and a standard for subsequent draftsmen.

Contemporary calf over wooden boards, metal furniture and clasps; rebacked, one catch missing, covers rubbed. Housed in a black cloth solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Woodcut device (McKerrow 119) on title, large woodcut arms on verso, numerous text woodcuts, some full-page, large folding woodcut diagram (lightly browned), historiated woodcut capitals, head- and tailpieces. Provenance: Leiden, Royal Academy ("Acad. Lugd." stamp on binding, and ink lettered at top and bottom edges, "Publica auctoritate vendidi W.G. Pluym" duplicate stamp on title); bookplate of Samuel Verplanck Hoffman (1866&#150;1942), president of the New York Historical Society, member of the Grolier Club, whose important collection of astrolabes was acquired by the Smithsonian in 1959. Lightly browned at beginning and end, a good copy. 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 &#39;electricity,&#39; &#39;electric force&#39; and &#39;electric attraction&#39;" (PMM). In Book One Gilbert "introduced his new basic idea &#133; that the earth is a gigantic lodestone and thus has magnetic properties" while in Book Two, his observations on the amber effect "introduced the vocabulary of electrics, and is the basis for Gilbert&#39;s place in the history of electricity" (DSB).

Index. mit 2 wiederholten Holzschnitt-Druckermarken auf den Titeln. Roter Maroquinlederband der Zeit mit rotem goldgeprägtem Rückenschild, Deckelfiletierung mit 4 Eckfleurons, floraler Rückenvergoldung und Ganzgoldschnitt. VD16 ZV 3112. - Band 4 (1876), S. 54. und VD16 ZV 9446. - "Casmann: Otto C., Theologe und Philosoph, gestoreben am 1. August 1607, war ein Schüler des Goclenius, wurde erster Lehrer der Schule zu Steinfurt und darauf Schulrector und Prediger zu Stade. Er suchte sich in der Philosophie von der Autorität der Aristotelischen Philosophie zu befreien und einen selbständigen Standpunkt zu gewinnen, blieb aber dabei auf halbem Wege stehen. Auch eine zu Frankfurt 1601 erschienene Apologie vermochte seinen Schriften keinen durchschlagenden Erfolg zu erringen. Dennoch ist er nicht ohne Verdienste um Logik, Psychologie, Moral und Politik und namentlich seine Arbeit über die empirische Psychologie verdient in Erinnerung gehalten zu werden." (ADB) - Die angebundene Dialektik von Petrus Ramus (i.e. Pierre de la Ramée, 1515 - 1572) erschien im Original 1555 auf Französisch und gilt als der erste französisch verfasste philosophische Text. Raméé lehrte am Collège de France. Er trat 1562 zum Calvinismus über. Der Ausgabe ist die Rhetorik von Omer Talon, in der Bearbeitung von Ramus, mit einem separaten Titelblatt, aber durchgängiger Pagination beigegeben. "Ramus war ein Gegner der aristotelisch-scholastischen Philosophie; schon der Titel seiner Magisterthese von 1536 hatte angeblich (Freigius zufolge) gelautet: &#132;Quecumque ab Aristotele dicta essent, commentita esse" (&#132;Was immer Aristoteles gesagt haben mag, sei erlogen"). Er entwickelte stattdessen eine neue, nicht-aristotelische Logik. Darin ersetzte er (in den Institutiones Dialecticae) den aristotelischen Syllogismus durch ein System von Dichotomien (vgl. Ramismus) in der Tradition des spätmittelalterlichen Logikers Rudolf Agricola (1444-1485). Mit der vernichtenden Kritik Francis Bacons (im Novum Organum, 1620) schwand die Anhängerschaft dieser Logikkonzeption. Auch moderne Logikhistoriker wie etwa Carl von Prantl sehen die logische Kompetenz und Innovativität des Autors kritisch.Ramus übte jedoch großen Einfluss auf den englischen und amerikanischen Puritanismus arminianischer Prägung aus. Nachdem Ramus in der Bartholomäusnacht ermordet worden war, wurden seine Schriften von Johann Thomas Frey (latinisiert Freigius oder Frigius; 1543-1583) veröffentlicht, der sich als der legitime Erbe des Philosophen ansah." (Wikipedia). - Beide Werke scheinen Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts im nichtkatholischen Deutschland weit verbreitet auf den Lehrplänen der Universitäten gestanden zu haben. Allein um Frankfurt (Frankfurt, Hanau und Oberursel) erschienen von Casmanns Rhetorik im Jahr 1600 4, verschiedene Ausgaben. Das vorliegende Exemplar ist ab dem Bogen I verbunden, jedoch vollständig. - Papier gleichmässig leicht gebräunt. - Vorderdeckel mit kleiner Wurmspur.

In the Preface, the anonymous editor credits the Frankfurt printers Marnius and Aubrius for this project: "viri pij, de literis & literatis iam-pridem optime meriti, quum de Latinis Concordantiis excudendis suscepissent consilium, & nostram opellam ea in re petissent, hunc ordinem sequi visum est". He dates the Preface Nonis Februariis, anno primo seculi Millesimi sexcentesimi [1600] and cites six previous Concordances 1555-1584 on which this work is based. The printers Johann Aubry (d.1601) & Claude de Marne (d.1610) were sons-in-law of Andreas Wechel and his heirs in the business. Another copy of this book was owned by Francis Bacon (1561-1626) who recorded the price he paid, 13s 4d (Book Auction Records 1909). 1 volume.

      N.p , n.d. [later 18th century] - Manuscript facsimile on vellum of a rare erotic work, "Conjectures of Women," an excerpt from William Coquillart's legal parody DROITS NOUVEAULX, printed circa 1600 in Rouen by Abraham Cousturier. The work was again printed in a limited facsimile edition in 1830. "Présomptions signifie ici conjectures. D'apres l'extérieur des femmes, leur air, leur habillement, l'auteur présume leur conduite cachée; et il entre dans des détiails grossièrement obscènes" (Brunet). The present mansucript is attributed to the 18th-century calligrapher F.F. Fyot 12mo. Manuscript in French, written in a roman hand in brown ink, 27 lines, recto and verso, on vellum. 8 leaves, including title with hand- drawn vignette and border. Early 19th-century red straight-grain morocco gilt, blue silk doublures and endleaves, a.e.g., by Thouvenin (signed "Thouve" in gilt on the spine), near fine. Cf.

        [Hebrew text: Pirke avot.] Sententiae et proverbia rabbinorum. Ludovico Henrico Daquin interprete. Ad illustrissimum Cardinalem Franciscum de la Roche-Foucault magnum Franciae Eleemosynarium, episcopum Sylvanectensem, &c. Paris, Sebastian Cramoisy, 1620. 16mo. Contemporary limp sheepskin parchment.

      BM, Cat. of Hebrew books, p. 552; WorldCat (6 copies). First edition of a collection of rabbinical sayings, expressions and proverbs in Hebrew, with a parallel Latin translation on the facing pages. Henri Daquin compiler and translator in Latin was born in Avignon in 1600, the son of a learned rabbi from Carpentras, Mardochee (1578-1650), who converted to Christianity at Aquino in the Kingdom of Naples. Louis XIII appointed the father professor of Hebrew at the College de France. This must be the earliest scholarly work by his son Louis-Henri. The Catholic Church placed it on the index of prohibited books on 2 December 1622, but that did not prevent the publication of a second edition at Paris in 1626.Good copy, with some faint browning in the last quires and stain in the right-hand margin throughout.

        Le Theatre d&#39;Agriculture et Mesnage des Champs

      Finely engraved architectural title-page by Mallery with Henri IV seated on his throne in a garden, eight fine woodcut vignettes, fine woodcut initials, and 13 large woodcuts in Chapters XIII & XIV. 9 p.l., 3-1004, [20] pp. Folio, 18th cent. mottled calf (minor scuffing to binding extremities), spine gilt, contrasting lettering piece on spine. Paris: J. Metayer, 1600. First edition of the first great French work on agronomy -- in its widest sense -- to be published. In this book, Serres devotes substantial sections to hunting, cookery, practical medicine, irrigation, forestry, viticulture, vegetable gardening, medicinal plants, fruit trees, silk cultivation, the management of servants, etc., etc. The author also discusses the duties of the mistress of the house and remedies for all manner of diseases suffered by men and animals. The work is divided into eight books, one of which is devoted entirely to wine and the culture of the grape. At the head of each book is a pretty woodcut vignette (145 x 68 mm.) enclosed within an ornamental border. These show various scenes on the estate: cows, the dairy, etc.; in the next ploughing and sowing are in progress; the third illustrates viticulture and the wine press; others show milking scenes, bee-hives, landscape gardening, forestry, and at the end a hunting scene with falcons. Serres (1539-1619), a Protestant, took part in the religious struggles in his native Vivarais. After 1573, he retired to his family&#39;s property of Pradel where for more than a quarter of a century he tried to revive the estate. It was there that he wrote this great book, based on his own experience and on the classical texts concerning agriculture. Henri IV also had taken a strong interest in the economic regeneration of France and the present work became, in effect, a manifesto for the King&#39;s new policies. Serres became a royal counselor in 1599 and advised Henri IV on various agricultural and economic projects. A very good and fresh copy. Minor foxing and a few unimportant marginal dampstains. Single tiny wormhole in lower margin of first third of book. &#10087; En Français dans le Texte 79. Simon, Bibliotheca Bacchica, II, 619. Vicaire, pp. 788-89. .

        Bibliothecae inclytae Reipub. Augustanae utriusque tum Graecae tum Latinae Librorurm et impressorum et manu exaratorum Catalogus

      [Compiled by Georg Henisch]. Typographical border round title (very slightly shaved at outer margin). 559 pp., [38] leaves. Agenda chancery 4to (303 x 96 mm.), cont. pigskin-backed wooden boards (smallish stain to first two leaves, one wooden corner chipped), orig. clasps & catches. Augsburg: V. Schönigk, 1600. A wonderfully well-preserved copy, from the private collection of Helmuth Domizlaff, of the second earliest catalogue of an institutional library (preceded only by the extremely rare catalogue of the Leyden University Library in 1595). Augsburg was, after the Palatina, the most important public library in Germany and the present catalogue became a valuable reference tool for the contemporary scholar. Our catalogue of the library of the Imperial City of Augsburg is one of the rarest of the great institutional library catalogues and certainly, from the point of view of its format, one of the strangest. It was printed in the very unusual agenda format, probably for ease of carrying (it would fit in a deep pocket). While it has been speculated that some copies were also printed in quarto size, I do not believe any such example exists. Archer Taylor wrote, in his Book Catalogues, regarding this catalogue, "it is said to have been printed in one hundred copies only" (p. 94). Augsburg&#39;s library "must have been one of the most important public libraries in the Europe of its time: many thousand works by over 4,000 authors are accurately described and arranged according to first names. It must have represented a valuable reference tool for the contemporary scholar."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 41. Both books and manuscripts are described. The author index at end, arranged by first name, is extremely advanced and includes authors of secondary texts, editors, etc. Georg Henisch (1549-1618), philologist and mathematician, studied medicine at Basel and went to Augsburg as professor of logic and mathematics. He served as head of the medical school, president of the city&#39;s gymnasium, and librarian of the Augsburg City Library. He was a highly esteemed scholar of the time as an editor of Greek texts and as an astronomer. Very fine copy, in fresh condition. Rather taller than the Breslauer copy (288 mm.). Contemporary ownership inscription of Joseph Anthony Rauch, dated 1733. &#10087; Peignot, pp. 42-43-"Ce volume a la hauteur d&#39;un in-folio, mais il n&#39;a que la moitié de la largeur; voilà pourquoi on l&#39;appele dimidiatum volumen."

        Novi orbis pars borealis, America scilicet, complectens Floridam, baccalaon Canadam

      Cologne: laminis Iani buxemechers, [1600]. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (sheet size: 14 4/8 x 11 4/8 inches; 9 x 11 4/8 inches to the neat line; framed size: 21 x 23 inches). A fine engraved map of North America by Johannes Bussemacher, the title and note within a frame beneath the map. A MAP OF NORTH AMERICA FROM THE FIRST ATLAS PUBLISHED IN GERMAN First edition, from Matthias Quad&#39;s general atlas of the world, "Geographisch Handtbuch", 1600. The atlas was largely an expansion of his earlier &#39;Europae totius orbis terrarum&#39; of 1592. It was a landmark moment in publishing, the work being the first atlas to be composed in German. Johannes Bussemacher was employed by Quad to engrave the map of North America which is a reduced version of Cornelis de Jode&#39;s &#39;Americae pars borealis&#39;. It is one of the earliest maps to concentrate on North America alone. De Jode condensed information for the map, which excludes the extreme northwest, from current wall maps and he was the first to make use of both John White and Jacques le Moyne&#39;s east coast cartography, although he inaccurately placed it. Quad here continues the mistake of placing the nomenclature of Virginia too far north. A long narrow waterway to the north represents the North West Passage; Lago de Conibas is also indicated. Some names have been surprisingly left out, notably Bermuda, St. Augustine, Roanoke and Chesapeake. A curious &#39;second&#39; peninsula is shown to the west of Florida which could be an early depiction of the Mississippi delta. Below the map is a panel with descriptive text. Quad included this map in a second edition of the atlas called Fasciculus Geographicus and published in 1608. It was also included in the German edition of Botero entitled Allgemeine Weltbeschreibung published in Munich, 1611, and again the following year. There is only one know state of this map (Burden). A prolific member of the "Cologne School of Cartography," Matthias Quad completed his training in Holland before arriving in Germany in 1587. Beginning in 1570, Cologne became a haven for Dutch cartographers eager to seek refuge from religious and political persecution at home. The migration continued for more than forty years resulting in a renaissance of Dutch mapmaking headed by Matthias Quad and Frans Hogenberg. Meurer states, "Quad&#39;s work is probably more extensive than is generally recognized." He is known to have published under a number of pseudonyms, including Cyprian Eichovius and Konrad Loew, in order to avoid difficulties resulting from his Reformed faith.W. Bonacher, Introduction, in the facsimile of Quad&#39;s Geographisch Handtbuch of 1600 (Amsterdam, 1969); P.D. Burden, The Mapping of North America (Rickmansworth, 1996) no. 133; W.

        [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.
