Petrarca, Francesco
Lugduni: Apud Samuelem Crispinum 8vo (16.8 cm; 6.625"). [16] ff., 96, 93–396, 381–683 (i.e., 703), [1 (blank)] p.. 1601 Famous as he is for his sonnets and influence on the development of the Italian language, to understand best why Petrarch (1304–74) is often labelled the father of Renaissance humanism, one must read and know his correspondence, his epistolarum. In this edition they are, as stated on the title-page, "Opus non paucis mendis repurgatum & multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C. quae ut à caeteris dignosci possint ex Epistola ad lectorem praefixa intelligetur." The reference to "multis epistolis auctum ex vetusto codice bibliotecae I. Chalasii I. C." refers to the 65 letters found in the library of Johannes Chalasius, of Nîmes, and => published here for the first time. The volume is in roman type and has the Crispinus printer's device on the title-page, woodcut initials, and headpieces. This is one of several issues of an edition differing only in the imprint and in slight variations of paging. 18th-century half "white" calf, gilt spine, raised bands, boards covered with red and white combed paper; edges rubbed; two spine compartments lighter than others, some captions shaved by binder's knife. Old institutional bookplate (no other markings); 19th-century pencilling and pen notes on front free endpaper. A clean and nice copy.

Good dark impression; some soiling and spotting mainly to blank margins; light creasing to centre fold and two horizontal creases to lower blank margin; very short tears to lower edge and corners somewhat ragged. Abraham Ortelius,[ 1527-1598] Flemish Cartographer . produced the first modern Atlas "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" in 1570. printed by Aegidus Coppen Diest. There were numerous editions thereafter with texts in various languages; the printing of such was taken over by Chrstoffel Plantijn in 1579 . Ortelius himself drew all the maps in manuscript before passing them to the printers. there is conjecture that he may have engraved some of the plates as well The 1595 Latin text edition is the most complete produced during his lifetime, containing all the maps of the 1593 edition plus those of the the"Additamentum" and the"Pareragon" or Ancient geography. The " Additamenta" were supplements to the original Atlas; at the same time Ortelius replaced some maps with new ones showing the same place; some plates were also reworked . Ortelius was Geographer Royal To Phillip II of Spain from 1575. He also worked closely with Braun & Hogenburg on the "Civitas Orbis Terarum".

[MATTHEW OF WESTMINSTER]
Francofurti, [i.e. Frankfurt]: Typis Wechelianis Apud Claudium Marniu & Heredes Joannis Aubrii, 1601. [8], 696pp, [24]. Contemporary seventeenth-century calf, with double blind-rule to boards and gilt dotted-roll to edges. Expertly and sympathetically rebacked to style, with original morocco lettering-piece laid down. Lightly rubbed to surfaces, corners of boards exposed with loss of calf, lacking original ties. Bookplates of T.P. Young and Minster Acres library to FEP. Rebacking has revealed fragment of manuscript on vellum binder's waste used in the construction of the original binding. Early ink inscription of Chas. Le Gros to title. Some marginal loss to fly-leaves, with later (nineteenth century?) manuscript reference to the authorship of this work in Nicholson's history, else internally clean, crisp and well margined. The Flores Historiarum (or 'Flowers of History') chronicles in Latin the history of England from the creation through to 1326. It's authorship, undoubtedly a collaborative effort in the later medieval period, is unknown - early ascriptions to 'Matthew of Westminster' were set aside in Victorian times when English historian Henry Richard Luard identified that this was in fact Matthew Paris - but likely the work of several monks at the Abbies of St. Albans and Westminster sucessively. Edited by Archbishop Matthew Parker for its first appearance in print in1567, and an almost immediate successor edition of 1570, the text of this Frankfurt edition reprints the later. This early English chronicle was particularly valued for its detailed account of the events … [Click Below for Full Description]

VILLAMENA, FRANCESCO.
Roma, 1601 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte e bulino, cm 35 x 50 circa (alla lastra) più margini; il nome dell'Autore, inventore e incisore della rappresentazione, ?F. Villoemena jn.?, è riportato in basso a sinistra, in lastra, su una sorta di cartiglio inserito nella scena che, in corrispondenza della zampa del cane, assomiglia a un sasso su cui la zampa anteriore alzata sembra stia per poggiare; al verso del foglio, a circa metà del lato destro (destro del recto e sinistro del verso), in corrispondenza del braccio sinistro in movimento di uno dei due uomini più spostati sulla sinistra della scena (quello che nella mano destra, più bassa, tiene pronto per essere lanciato un sasso), è presente la nitida filigrana della pigna d'uva sormontata da coroncina (o giglio). L'opera è anche nota coi titoli ?La baruffa di Bruttobuono? o ?La rissa dei popolani?. Il Villamena illustra qui, in una magnifica scena realizzata alla riconoscibile maniera dell'incisore, con una incisione caratterizzata da grandi figure e ampi tratteggi che molto lasciano alle parti bianche del chiaroscuro, un episodio di ordine pubblico realmente accaduto nel 1601: sullo sfondo una probabile campagna romana, e in primo piano lo scoppio di una lite, frequentissime in quel periodo a Roma, con l?intervento di un capopopolo per fermarla. Francesco Villamena (Assisi, verso il 1566 ? Roma, 1624), disegnatore, pittore e incisore al bulino, operò a Roma nel primo quarto del XVII secolo. Secondo la tradizione, fu allievo di Cornelius Cort, ne copiò le incisioni, e lavorò, in età giovanile, con Agostino Carrac … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. Este livro está na origem ou baseia-se na lenda de que o Conde D. Henrique era filho dum Rei da Hungria.(Wikipedia). Encadernação inteira de pele século XVIII. Com varios restauros profissionais, reforço de papel no frontispicio, nas primeiras paginas e varios furos de bicho. Obra rara. Bom exemplar.
