De Bry, Johann Theodor.
Frankfurt, Erasmus Kempffer, 1601-1628.. Folio (220 x 317 mm). 12 books bound in 4 volumes. With 10 engr. title pages, 252 engraved illustrations, 3 engr. views, 17 engr. maps, and 3 armorial engravings. Bound at the end are 5 extra maps and views (including a world map and a view of Jerusalem) from Marino Sanuto's 1611 "Liber secretorum fidelium crucis". Slightly later Spanish limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Ties.. All twelve books of Theodore de Bry's "Petits Voyages", the greatest single collection of material on early voyages to the East Indies and considered unique in its extraordinary wealth of cartographical and visual material on Africa, India, and South Asia. Notably, book seven includes Gasparo Balbi's groundbreaking account of the Middle East, first published in 1590 as "Viaggio dell' Indie Orientali" - a mere 16 years before this present issue, making this the second appearance in print altogether and the first Latin translation. Balbi, a Venetian jewel merchant, travelled extensively in the Arabian Peninsula in search of precious stones. From Venice he sailed for Aleppo, proceeding to Bir and from there overland to Baghdad, descending the Tigris to Basra, where he embarked for India. While in the Persian Gulf, he studied the pearl industry, noting that the best pearls were to be found at Bahrain and Julfar. He refers to islands in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (including Sir Bani Yas and Das) and to several coastal settlements that were to become permanently established, such as Dubai and Ras al Khaima. Balbi was the first to record the place names along the co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Crónica do imperador Clarimundo é um romance de cavalaria português, escrito por João de Barros e publicado pela primeira vez em Coimbra em 1522. A obra, que finge ser traduzida do húngaro, conta a vida e feitos do cavaleiro Clarimundo, que chega a ser Rei da Hungria e Imperador de Constantinopla e do qual, segundo o livro, descendem os reis de Portugal. Termina prometendo uma segunda parte, que não se chegou a imprimir. Clarimundo foi reimpresso em Lisboa em 1522 e 1601, e em Coimbra a 1555. Apesar de que os livros de cavalarias caíram de moda e de ser uma obra bastante volumosa, manteve sua popularidade durante um período considerável, já que mesmo atingiu duas edições mais no século XVIII, uma em 1742 e outra em Lisboa em 1790.

A few words or names crossed off of printed title. One of the major tragedies of the author.

For most critics L'amovr tiranniqve now seems like an attempt to rival Corneille's El Cid, 1637.

"Verdient [...] einen Ehrenplatz in der Geschichte der Augsburger Buchillustration, ist es doch reich mit Kupferstichtafeln ausgestattet. Unter den Entwerfern war der bayerische Hofmaler Friedrich Sustris (um 1540-1599), der Tafel II, III und VIII vorzeichnete. Durch Position und Größe hervorgehoben ist die ganzseitige Illustration auf Tafel II, auf der die Madonna mit Kind über einer Vedute von Augsburg schwebt. [...] Der subtilen Vorzeichnung von Sustris entspricht eine feinlinige, ein wenig altertümlich wirkende Stichelführung, die Faltenwürfe und Inkarnate differenziert behandelt und auch den steinernen Bildsockel [...] zu charakterisieren versteht."

Es ist seine erste Veröffentlichung, bevor er sich der Anatomie der Sinnesorgane widmete (Pentaesthesion. Venedig 1609). Casserius genoß schon früh so viel Anerkennung und Ruhm, dass ihm die Universitäten von Parma und Turin einen Lehrstuhl anboten, den er jedoch ablehnte.

Titel in Schwarz und Rot gedruckt.. Pergament der Zeit mit hs. Rückentitel und spanischen Kanten ohne die Bindebänder, teils leicht fleckig und etwas angestaubt sowie bestoßen.. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. Die wichtigste Quelle für Johann Kaspar Lavater*** Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten wichtigen physiognomischen Traktats "De humana physiognomia", Hauptwerk des neapolitanischen Arztes, Philosophen, Alchimisten und Schriftstellers Giovanni Battista Della Porta (1535-1615), das in vier Bänden in Vico Equense, seinem Geburtsort, im Jahre 1586 erschienen war. Das Kardinal Luigi d'Este gewidmete Werk wurde außergewöhnlich erfolgreich und beeinflusste den Schweizer Physiogomen und Freund Johann Wolfgang Goethes, Johann Kaspar Lavater maßgeblich (1741-1801). Lavater baute auf Della Portas System seine ebenfalls in vier Bänden aufgeteilte "Physiognomischen Fragmente zur Beförderung der Menschenkenntnis und Menschenliebe" (1775-78). Grundgedanke ist die Rückführung der menschlichen Physiognomie auf Grundformen und Typen, denen sich definierte Charaktereigenschaften zuweisen lassen - und die bei Della Porta mit bestimmten Tierköpfen korrespondieren. So setzte er Menschen mit kleinen Ohren den Affenkopf, mit langer Nasen dem Hundskopf, dem Menschen mit Hakennase den Hahn gegenüber und antwortet auf die Fragen "Waß … [Click Below for Full Description]

Porta, Giovanni Battista della.
Frankfurt, Romani Beati Erben, 1601.. . Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des frühen physiognomischen Werkes. "Della Porta preceded Lavater in attempting to estimate human character by the features. He was the founder of physiognomy and this is one of the earliest works on this subject" (Garrison/Morton zur lat. Ausgabe von 1586). Porta (1535-1615) war neapolitanischer Arzt, Universalgelehrter und Dramatiker. Durch seine Methodik und Objektivität gilt er als einer der ersten Naturwissenschaftler im modernen Sinne. Im Jahre 1558 veröffentlichte er die "Magia naturalis", die ihn bekannt machte. Eine von ihm zwei Jahre später in Neapel gegründete Gesellschaft zur Erforschung der Natur, die "Academia Secretorum Naturae", mußte auf Befehl des Papstes wieder aufgelöst werden. Endgültig berühmt machte ihn seine 1563 erschienene profunde Schrift über Kryptologie mit dem Titel "De furtivis literarum notis" (Anmerkungen über versteckte Buchstaben). Das vorliegende Buch, 1586 unter dem Titel "De humana physiognomia" erschienen, ist Portas zweites Hauptwerk. Seine Beschäftigung mit Magie und Physiognomie führte 1592 dazu, daß er sich vor der Inquisition zu verantworten hatte. Daraufhin zog er sich von wissenschaftlicher Arbeit zurück und wandte sich der Literatur zu. Seine Komödie "La Trappolaria", eines von vielen erfolgreichen dramatischen Werken, erschien 1596. - Nach VD17 Variante B mit der Kustode "XX Figur" statt nur "XX" auf dem letzten Blatt des "Register" genannten Inhalsverzeichnisses. - Titel mit kleinem altem Adelsstempel.

We are prone to think today of physiognomy as antiscientific, but it was in fact a way of emphasizing the dependence of behavior on body, a sort of physiological psychology."-Diamond 23.5.
