      Wittelius, Biponti [Zweibrücken] 1603 - Biponti [Zweibrücken], Wittelius 1603. Folio (30 x 20 cm). 273 Seiten, [1] weißes Blatt. Etwas späteres Ganzpergament mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Einbandbezug am Rücken und dem Vorderdeckel beschädigt. Lederschließbändchen nur fragmentarisch vorhanden. Durchgehend gebräunt, teils stärker. Nur vereinzelt mit handschriftlichen Anmerkungen. Titelblatt mit mehreren alten, handschriftlichen Besitzvermerken. VD17 23:232203P. KTJ 1963, S. 20-31 (Laufner). Unter den Besitzeinträgen sind Seraphinus Henolt und der Mainzer Kanzler Franz Philipp Faust lesbar. Hauptwerk des ersten Trierer Stadthistorikers und der Versuch, die Reichsunmittelbarkeit der Stadt zu beweisen. Dr. Wilhelm Kyriander (ca. 1535-1579/80) war seit 1569 zehn Jahre in Diensten der Stadt Trier, ihr Syndikus und Stadthistoriker. 1565 hatte die Stadt wie schon 1364 die volle städtische Autonomie von Ihrem geistlichen Landesherrn, dem Kurfürsten, beansprucht, den Prozeß vor dem Reichskammergericht am 18. Dezember 1566 aber verloren. Sie setzte jedoch alles daran in einem zwölfjährigen "Papierkrieg in Form eines Monsterprozesses" (Laufner) die Reichsunmittelbarkeit durchzusetzen und engagierte einen geschulten Juristen, dessen Jahressalär mehr als das der beiden Bürgermeister und des Stadtschreibers zusammen betrug. Am 22. April 1571 erhielt der Protestant Kyriander vom städtischen Magistrat den Auftrag zur "Vollfürung unser schwebenden Rechtsverteidigung. ein Cronicon ufzurichten und die verlauffene Zeit und Mutationes, was sich bei Trier jederzeit zugetragen und geendert, zusammenzutragen und zu beschreiben". Die Obrigkeit der Stadt Köln ließ auf Betreiben des Trierer Erzbischofs die dort 1576 anonym erschienene erste Auflage noch während der Auslieferung beschlagnahmen und vernichten. "Aus Haß gegen den Trierer Erzbischof ließ Herzog Johann von Zweibrücken die Annalen neuerdings drucken und verbreiten" (Kentenich, Trier, S. 412f.). Erstmals 1603 - wie hier vorliegend - bis 1625 erschienen dann insgesamt vier Auflagen. Obwohl die "Früchte seines außergewöhnlichen Fleißes. die Nachwelt nicht nur erstaunen" lassen (Laufner), schlug das Unternehmen Reichsunmittelbarkeit fehl. So blieb es in Trier beim Alten und Goethe schrieb 1792 aus "einem alten Pfaffennest, das in einer angenehmen Gegend liegt". Einbandbezug am Rücken und dem Vorderdeckel beschädigt. Lederschließbändchen nur fragmentarisch vorhanden. Durchgehend gebräunt, teils stärker. Nur vereinzelt mit handschriftlichen Anmerkungen. Titelblatt mit mehreren alten, handschriftlichen Besitzvermerken. Etwas späteres Ganzpergament mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel.

        Uranometria

      Augsburg: Alexander Mair, 1603. hardcover. Celestial Atlas. 51 double page copperplate engravings of celestial charts. Folio 13" x 10". Rubricated edges. Original full blind stamped vellum with minimal warping. Beautiful title page depicts the figure of Atlas, the first professor of astronomy, and Hercules, the first student on astronomy, on pedestals on either side of the title. Along the top of the page, above the title, several other figures are featured, including Apollo, Earth goddess Cybele and Diana. The figure of Capricorn and a view of the city of Augsburg are featured below the title. The title page is followed by 3 leaves of text. Water stains and toning along the centerfold on many of the plates, marginal worm holes, foxing and many early repairs. An interesting feature about this atlas are the faint brown manuscript markings outlining other constellations appearing on the plates. The Pegasus plate, appears to be added at a later date, and includes Latin text on verso in manuscript, in a format similar to the original text. Text in similar ink also appears on the title page, below the original title, and reads, "Collegy Societatis Jesu Vienna Catalogue...1615", suggesting that this text and plate were added in 1615. The index at the end is also written in manuscript by the same hand. For a complete list of the notations, and flaws contact the gallery. This is Johann Bayer's rare first edition celestial atlas - Uranometria. Published in 1603, it was the first atlas to cover the entire celestial sphere and was published five years prior to the invention of the telescope, which would go on to revolutionize astronomy. When translated from the Greek, Uranometria means '"Measuring Heaven". Published by Alexander Mair, the atlas includes 51 star charts. The first 48 feature the 48 constellations, while the 49th chart includes 12 previously unknown constellations appearing in the southern sky. The last two charts represent the Overview of the Northern Hemisphere and the Overview of the Southern Hemisphere. Bayer's Uranometria was also among the first celestial atlases to show the stars around the South Pole.<br><br>Based on star positions from Ptolemy's "Almagest" and from Tycho Brahe's catalogue, Bayer's atlas plots over 2000 stars. One of the most popular atlases of the 17th century, given its exquisitely engraved charts, it was the first to label bright stars by Greek letters, a system still used today, and one that would become commonly known as the 'Bayer designation'.<br><br>Johann Bayer (1572 - 1625) was a German lawyer and astrologer born in Rain, Bavaria. After studying philosophy in 1592, he moved to Augsburg and pursued a career in law. His passion for astronomy lead him to publish the famous 'Uranometria", the most comprehensive pre-telescopic star catalog. He also introduces the "bayer designations' still in use today. He was appointed legal advisor to the city council of Augsburg in 1612. This is the first edition of his seminal work. A rare and important find.

        Historia medica, in qua libris IV. Animalium natura, et eorum medica utilitas exactè & luculenter tractantur. Cum iconibus eorum, ad vivum delineatis.Brussels, Jan Mommaert II, 1639. 4to. With woodcut device on title-page, a different woodcut of the same device on final page, 77 woodcut illustrations plus 3 repeats (4 signed "I.C.I." for Jan Christoffel Jegher). Contemporary sheepskin parchment over flexible boards.

      Krivatsy 1603; Nissen, ZBI 481; STCV (5 copies). Rare first and only edition of a well-illustrated handbook on medicinal uses of animals and animal products, by Willem vanden Bossche in Dendermonde (East Flanders). The wild and domesticated animals are arranged in four sections: birds and other winged animals (including a bat, eagle, falcon, vulture, owls, swan, goose, peacock, pheasant and parrot), mammalian quadrupeds (including a camel, horse, lion, elephant), fish and other marine animals, edible and inedible (including an eel, turtle, snails, frogs, otter and beaver), and insects, arthropods, reptiles, worms, etc.. The lice are shown with their host scratching his head and the leeches in use for bloodletting on a woman's arm. The beaver looks rather like a wolf with a fish body for a tail. The woodcut of a hedgehog is reused to illustrate the sea urchin! Bossche gives a description of each animal, quoting sources from antiquity to the seventeenth century, and then discusses its medical uses.With owners' inscriptions, owner's stamp and an occasional marginal manuscript note. The woodblock of locusts is damaged in all copies we have seen. With one quire slightly browned, a water stain running into the text in 3 quires and an occasional marginal defect, but still in good condition. The binding is wrinkled with a few small holes and with only remains of the ties, but otherwise good. A fascinating medical-zoological work.

        ORLANDO FURIOSO and I CINQUE CANTI

      F. Valgrisi and N. Moretti, Venice 1603 - Large octavo (7" x 10") bound in early full vellum, [16] 654 [32] pages. The complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, with Ruscelli's dedication to the Duke of Ferrara dated 1556 and an account of the life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Illustrated with an engraved title page, 51 full-page woodcuts, ornamental headpieces, and initial letters. The woodcuts, within decorative borders, are after the designs of Dossa Dossi, the Ferrarese painter, and are printed from the blocks of the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556. First published in 1516, this classic Italian romantic epic influenced many later works including Spenser's THE FAERIE QUEENE and Shakespeare's MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING. The action takes place against the background of the war between Charlemagne and his Christian paladins and the Saracen army which is attempting to invade Europe. However, Ariosto has little concern for historical or geographical accuracy, and the poem wanders at will from Japan to the Hebrides, as well as including many fantastical and magical elements, such as a trip to the moon and an array of fantastical creatures including a gigantic sea monster called the orc and the hippogriff. The poem grew in popularity as well in size after Ariosto's death, increasing from 40 to 46 cantos in 1532 and finally to the finished form of 51 cantos. Some of the impressions are weak, but most are quite presentable. Trimmed at the top close to the text and plate lines, affecting one line of text in the dedication; other margins quite adequate. Vellum soiled. Very Good or better [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        XII Caesarum Romanorum Imagines

      1603. VREDEMAN DE VRIES, Hans. XII Caesarum Romanorum Imagines. E numismatibus expressae, et historica narratione illustrata. By Franciscus Sweertius. 30 pp. Illustrated with engraved frontispiece and 12 engraved portraits with elaborate borders by Hans Vredeman de Vries. Small 4to., 200 x 140 mm, bound in eighteenth-century Dutch calf, spine gilt. Antwerp: Ionnus Baptista Vrintius, 1603. |~||~||~||~| First Edition in book form with the text by Franciscus Sweertius (1567-1629). A finely engraved series of portraits of the Roman Emperor's from Julius Caesar to Domitian, each set in elaborate grotesque boarders designed by Hans Vredeman de Vries. Vredeman de Vries (ca. 1527-1604) was a much celebrated Dutch architect and draughtsman whose model books and works on perspective disseminated the new artistic innovations of Renaissance Italy to Northern Europe. The present boarders feature a harmoniously intertwined cornucopia of ornamental and allegorical subject matter that surely would have been used as models for artists and designers. The plates first appeared as a suite entitled Icones Duodecim Caesarum Romanum published by Gerard de Jode around 1590 then appearing for the first time in book form in the present edition. Both the suite and book are rare. Spine with small professional repairs, a light marginal water stain on five leaves, some scattered spotting, overall a very nice copy with good impressions.

        Relaciones universales del mundo ... primera y segunda parte.

      Valladolid: Impresso por los herederos de Diego Fernandez de Cordoua Folio (27 cm; 10.5"). [4], 207, 110 ff. (without final blank and without the maps).. 1603–1599 Botero (1540–1617) was an Italian thinker, priest, poet, and diplomat, and after 1580 an expelled Jesuit. His Relaciones universales del mondo, originally published 1594 to 1595 in Italian, tells of the "universal church" (i.e., Catholicism) in various parts of the world, including America, the Old World, India, the circum-Mediterranean, Africa, China, the Philippines, Japan, and Southeast Asia, but also England, Scotland, Ireland, and "the realm of Prester John." More than a few scholars view this as one of the first demographic studies. This first edition, second issue in Spanish is the translation of Diego de Aguiar. It is composed of the sheets of first edition of 1600–1599 with a new title-page. Printed in roman type, double-column format, it offers a liberal sprinkling of large woodcut initials, some of which are historiated. Provenance: 19th-century private ownership stamp on verso of title-leaf; bookplate of the John Carter Brown Library (with small release stamp) on the front pastedown. 18th-century mottled sheep, raised bands, gilt spine extra; spine gorgeously bright and covers with some abrasions. Title-page and final leaf with foremargins excised and the leaves mounted; first folio 113 with short tears repaired with with cello tape now darkened. Occasional foxing and the other odd spot or stain only; all edges red and a blue ribbon placemarker. A text volume only, this lacks the maps and is priced accordingly; it is an important and famous work with a good provenance in an otherwise very handsome copy, for the reader.

        A new, cheape and delicate Fire of Cole-balles, wherein Seacole is by the mixture of other combustible bodies, both sweetened and multiplied.London: Peter Short dwelling at the signe of the Starre on Bredstreet-hill, 1603.

      "First edition, the superb Macclesfield copy bound in contemporary vellum gilt, of this important work by "Elizabethan London's most curious student of nature" (Harkness, p. 8), which first introduced the process of making coke from coal, a technological innovation that proved crucial in the industrial revolution. This is an extremely rare book - indeed, this is probably the only surviving perfect copy (see below). "The technique of making coke from coal [was] suggested in 1603 by Hugh Plat as a process similar to making charcoal from wood" (Osborne, p. 234). "Coke's superior crushing strength allowed blast furnaces to become taller and larger. The ensuing availability of inexpensive iron was one of the factors leading to the industrial revolution" (Newgera, p. 89). "Plat's approach to his many collaborators and the natural knowledge they shared with him was rigorous, and prefigures in significant ways ... the scientific method" (Harkness, p. 214). "Plat's work should not be interpreted as a weak anticipation of [Francis] Bacon but as a very strong stimulus to Bacon's philosophy of science" (Conner, p. 300). ESTC locates copies at British Library [lacks A1], Bodleian [lacks A1, ex Juel-Jensen], Birmingham University [lacks A1]; Marsh's Library Dublin [missing], Glasgow University [apparently lacking one leaf - presumably A1 - as pagination is given as 30 pp.], Folger [sheet A frayed, affecting title & text; ex Sion College], Huntington [lacks A1]; no other copy located in auction records.

As the Macclesfield sale catalogue notes (Part 2, p. 12), "It is probably not unreasonable to suppose that anything published before 1683 [in the Macclesfield Library] belonged to him [i.e. John Collins (1625-83)]. At some time after Collins's death his books and papers came into the possession of the mathematician William Jones (1675-1749), who bequeathed his library to the second Earl. ".

        Theatrum orbis terrarum

      Antwerp: Jan Baptist Vrients, 1603. 3 parts in one volume (including the 'Parergon' and 'Nomenclator'), folio. (18 7/16 x 12 inches). Mounted on guards throughout. With full period hand-colouring throughout. Hand-coloured engraved allegorical general title, with full-page engraving of the arms Philip II of Spain on the verso, engraved full-page memorial to Ortelius incorporating a small circular portrait of him, full-page engraved portrait of Ortelius, hand-colored engraved section-title to the 'Parergon' with architectural surround, hand-coloured engraved vignette on letterpress section title to the 'Nomenclator'. 156 double-page hand-coloured engravings (151 mapsheets, 2 costume plates, 3 views), numerous hand-coloured woodcut initials. Contemporary red morocco, covers bordered and panelled in gilt and blind, covers with a large central design in gilt, expertly rebacked to style, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, compartments with a repeat decoration in gilt (expert restoration at board edges) A very rare example of Ortelius's Renaissance masterwork: the first true atlas, here with full contemporary hand colouring. The colouring in this copy is without doubt the finest that we have ever seen. This Latin edition published by Jan Baptist Vrients is one of the most complete issues of the 'Theatrum Orbis' and includes both the 'Parergon' and 'Nomenclator.' The Theatrum... of Abraham Ortelius was one of the most brilliant and innovative of all Renaissance books. It was the first true atlas in the modern sense of the word, and as such, it introduced an entirely new and standardized method for the study of geography. For the first time in one volume, all parts of the globe were treated in a comprehensive and uniform manner, and thus it presented as complete a picture as was then possible of the whole world. Ortelius published editions of his atlas not only in Latin, the traditional language of the scholarly elite, but in the six major European vernaculars: German, Dutch, French, Italian, English and Spanish. The Theatrum was therefore equally at home in the library of a scholar in Paris, a country gentleman in Kent, or a merchant in Grenada. This widespread dissemination had profound results in an age when geographical knowledge was in a rudimentary state: the information laid out in the Theatrum became the universally accepted vision of the world. Another strategy used to make the atlas more accessible to the public was the inclusion of beautiful embellishments in the popular mannerist style, thus appealing to contemporary aesthetic tastes, and aligning the Theatrum with the other great artistic accomplishments of the age. In speaking of the maps in the Theatrum , the noted art historian, James A. Welu comments on "their richness of ornamentation, [they are] a combination of science and art that has rarely been surpassed in the history of mapmaking ... Ortelius's Theatrum is known for its numerous decorative cartouches, which undoubtedly added to the atlas's long popularity" ( Art and Cartography , pp. 145-146). Ortelius played a pivotal role in disseminating the revelations of the important explorations and cartographical works of his time. The enthusiasm he and his colleagues felt for their task is suggested in the quote from Cicero at the bottom of the world map map, which may be loosely translated: "How can human affairs be taken seriously by one who contemplates the great world and all eternity?" Further, the Theatrum was the first major printed work of any kind to include scholarly citations of authorities (i.e. the original mapmakers), thus introducing for the first time the concept of footnoting to Western scholarship. Ortelius further included a massive appendix (the Parergon ), consisting of a detailed classical atlas, to appeal to Renaissance Europe's fascination with the ancient world. In its comprehensive coverage of the world, the uniform excellence of its maps, the standardized style and format, the extensive use of the vernacular for marketing, its scholarly citations, and massive classical appendix, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of Abraham Ortelius had no precedent. Cf. Burden 64 (map of the Americas) & 74 (map of the Pacific); cf. Shirley 158 (world map); van der Krogt Koeman III, 31:053; c.f. Printing and the Mind of Man 91.

        Para que los indios Yanaconas no pueden ser detenidos en las Chacaras contra su voluntad

      1603 - N.d. [1603]. Lima. Antonio Ricardo. In folio (316 mm x 220 mm). 4 pp. Modern vellum. Moderate damp staining and edge wear, not affecting; extensive contemporary transmittal notes on final 2 pages. First edition. An extremely rare and early Peruvian imprint with a strong South American ethnological content: Velasco complains intensely on the poor treatment of South American Indians, claiming they are being held as captives, treated as slaves, and deprived of religious evangelization. The Yanaconas was a term used by the Spanish to refer to the Quechua Indians used in the &#147;encomiendas&#148;, or to refer to those employed in servitude; however it was a rather ambiguous term, which was also used pejoratively in other parts of South America. Originally, the Yanaconas [also Yanakuna or Yana] were the Indians from the Inca Empire under the employment of the Inca or the religious establishment, who previously worked the ayllu system; some were granted social status and could own land. The Yanaconas were far from slaves, which the imprint denounces in full outright criticism as to the way they were being treated as of late by the Spanish. The Yanaconas favored the Spanish from an early stage, and forged an alliance with them, even in detriment of their former system of hierarchy and Inca nobility, aiding the Spanish defeat the Incas. This imprint, besides being important from a historical point of view, and dealing with a rather scarcely treated subject (that of rightful treatment of Indians workers), is as well extremely rare and one of the earliest produces of the first South American printing house (number 19 in Medina´s La Imprenta en Lima). Extremely rare, we could only find one copy in OCLC, (Colegio de Mexico), and one other at JCB; no copies in Spain. Only one copy has appeared in the trade, offered by Rosenbach in 1948 for 285 u$s, which appears to be this one. Medina, Lima, 19. Vargas Ugarte, Impresos Peruanos, 30. Sabin, 98800.

        Historie di quattro principali citta del mondo, Gerusalemme, Roma, Napoli e Venetia. Aggiuntoui vn compendio dell'istorie dell'Indie

      appresso Giorgio Greco, Venice 1603 - EXCELLENT EDITION WITH WOODCUT ASTRONOMICAL DIAGRAMS AND TABLES 4to. pp. (xvi), 449 (i.e.439) (i).Italic letter. Woodcut printer&#146;s device on title, floriated woodcut initials woodcut and typographical headpieces, small woodcut astrological diagrams with several astrological tables, early monogram G.N.P. in blank margin of title price? 3.10 below. Light age yellowing, some very light browning in places, tiny tear in outer blank margin of title. A very good, clean copy in contemporary vellum over boards, all edges speckled red. Excellent edition of Zappullo&#146;s description of the four principal cities of the world appended with a long and important description of the New World. "The first edition of a turn of the century, Counter -Reformation history of the three principal cities in the world - Jerusalem Rome and Naples, published in Naples in 1598 by Michele Zappullo, brings together Naples classical inheritance and the common view of successive epochs. Zappullo recounts world history as a succession of ages in the light of God&#146;s intervention into human affairs. According to Zappullo, whereas Jerusalem was sacred to the Jews, . Rome was the seat of the gentile . Naples on the other hand proved to be the first city of Europe converted to Christianity and the refuge of Christianity during the persecution of the primitive church, and since then has remained steadfast in its ancient faith. . And with the passing of 1600 without an end to the world, Zappullo&#146;s subsequent editions were able to expand his argument to the spread of Christianity to the Venetians and to the people of the New World." John A. Marino &#145;Becoming Neapolitan: Citizen Culture in Baroque Naples&#146;. Zappullo added the city of Venice and his description of the Indies to the second and subsequent editions; Venice due to its long history not subject to its enemies and the Indies as the hope and fulfillment of the spread of God&#146;s word to all of mankind. The substantial account of the New World, pages 341-422, deal primarily with Central and South America, but also mentions Canada, Labrador, and the St. Lawrence River, and even Japan and India. There is a chapter on astronomy at the end. "Michele Zappullo, mourned the long reign of the Devil in the New World, with the consequent loss of millions of souls. Zappullo charged the Indians, both men and women, with being cruel, bestial, treacherous, senseless, ignorant, inconstant and thievish; .He offered graphic depictions of the various Aztec modes of human sacrifice, but did not indicate that these practices were limited to Mexico. Zappullo claimed that sodomy was so common among the Indians that men married other men, with the one who played the part of wife performing all the tasks usually assigned to women. In close imitation of Gomara, Zapullo scornfully depicted the poverty of Indian life. The Indians lacked all things necessary for human comfort, such as wheat, wine and the olive: mills, beasts of burden and iron. They had no weights, measures or numbers; no music or letters; indeed, none of the liberal arts." Benjamin Keen &#145;The Aztec Image in Western Thought&#146;.

The latter's preface explains that the Annual Letter for 1600 had not arrived, so this Sopplimento had been appended instead to Valignanos's letter for 1599. Both report on the changing political conditions in Japan following Hideyoshi's death in 1598. In his letter Valignano expressed his hopes that the political impasse in Japan would continue despite the tension that marked the relations of the different governing bodies. He recognised that the church would prosper under a politically divided regime. He described the political factions that emerged and made predictions about the future political situation. The political instability was a boon for the Jesuit missions and Valignano also announces that the mission had achieved 40,000 baptisms since February of that year. "Jesuit documentation is particularly useful for this turbulent period. The missionaries knew the country well enough to be able to express their personal opinions. Nevertheless, when explaining the evolution of the political situation in Japan to the outside world, they transmitted expectations that were very similar to those of the Japanese population in general. Thus, their accounts are particularly interesting and useful for our understanding of these decisive years that preceded the coming to power of the Tokugawa dynasty." Joao Paulo Oliveira e Costa, 'Tokugawa Ieyasu and the Christian Daimya During the Crisis of 1600.' The annual letters, apart from their political and religious information, also constituted the only up-to-date first-hand account of Japan, its cities, economy, industries, armed forces, geography, climate and people, that was then available in western Europe. "Valentim Carvalho's supplement to the Annual letter of 1600, published in 1603, reports Ieyasu's friendliness and favours towards the mission and judges that the mission is in as good a state as it was in 1586, before Hideyyoshi's anti-Christian edict" Donald F. Lach 'East Asia.' Both Carvalho and particularly Valignano were involved at the highest level of the interaction between the Japanese authorities and Jesuits, and provide extraordinary insight into trade negotiations, the shifting political situation, and the delicate balancing act required to ensure the safety of the missions.

        SLOVENIA &#150; Heraldry]. [Coat of arms of David Pantaleon "Carniolang" from the Album Amicorum of Wilhelm Necker].

      - This well-executed work, heightened in gold and silver, is the coat of arms of David Panteleon "Carniolang" (meaning a native of Carniola, Inner Austria) and is dated August 5, 1603. Most importantly, to the side of the arms is written, in archaic colloquial Slovenian employing the Bohori?&#146;s alphabet, "Jeli je Bug sa nas du nam bo super" (roughly translated: &#145;If God is with us we will be great&#146;). Importantly, this motto represents an early surviving example of the manuscript use of the Slovenian language following Bohori?'s alphabet. These precepts were first codified by the Protestant author Adam Bohori? (c.?1520 &#150; 1598) in his book Articae Horulae (1584), which is considered to be the first grammar book of the Slovenian language. Slovenian had been used extensively for almost thirty years before Bohori?&#146;s work by several Slovene Protestant authors. It was most notably employed by Jurij Dalmatin (c.?1547 &#150; 1589) when he published the first complete Slovenian translation of the bible (1584). David Pantaleon was born into a learned and well-connected Protestant family that had established themselves as part of the bourgeoisie in Ljubljana. His father, Melchior Pantaleon, hailed from Styria, born in a village near Ptuj, but moved to Ljubljana in his youth. Melchior studied in Tübingen and worked in Strasbourg, before returning to Ljubljana in 1576. He rose to become the city secretary and a councilor and maintained close connections with many of the major Slovenian Protestants of the period. This circle included Adam Bohori? and Jurij Dalmatin. Melchior Pantaleon is mentioned together with Bohori? and Dalmatin in the letters of the most famous Slovenian Protestant, Primoz Trubar (1508-1586), who published the first two books written in the Slovenian language in Tübingen in 1550 (Theodor Elze, Primus Trubers Briefe, mit den dazu geho?rigen Schriftstu?cken, pp. 544 and 586). David Pantaleon was raised in this circle. He attended the Protestant gymnasium in Ljubljana where Adam Bohori? served as dean between 1565 and 1582 and 1595 and 1598. Unusually, the language of instruction for the introductory classes was Slovenian. Unfortunately, the school was closed in 1598 by the religious zealot Archduke Ferdinand III and Bohori? was compelled to leave the country. In 1592, David enrolled at the University in Tübingen, then a great centre of Protestant learning. He subsequently travelled to other cities and spent some time at the University of Dole, France, where he presented the coat of arms to Wilhelm Necker in 1602. He returned to Ljubljana and became the city secretary, the same post previously held by his father. However, David Pantaleon, like many other prominent Protestants in Inner Austria, was caught in the crosshairs of Ferdinand III&#146;s Counterreformation. He ran into trouble with the authorities and it became clear that his days in Ljubljana were numbered. In 1616, he was relieved of his government post and the following year, David and his two brothers, Jakob and Joseph, and their families went into exile, never to return to their native land. David Pantaleon&#146;s experiences were typical of the Protestant bourgeoisie in Inner Austria. During the height of Ferdinand III&#146;s (who became Holy Roman Emperor in 1619, ruling as Ferdinand II) Counterreformation many educated people, including most of the nobility, left the country, taking their intellectual property with them. This had a devastating effect on the region&#146;s economy and culture. It is estimated that about 800 private libraries were moved out of Inner Austria during this period. The present coat of arms is a rare and important artifact of South Slavic culture, due to the presence of a passage in vernacular Slovenian, written by a man who had direct contact with the contemporary framers of the language. Surviving manuscript examples of written Slovenian from the late 16th and the beginning of the 17th Century are very rare, and so this coat of arms is truly significant. Refer

Bien qu'il fut un humaniste très éclairé et un profond érudit, ami de bien des poètes (Muret, Ronsard, Baïf.), il est l'auteur d'une poésie légère et particulièrement spirituelle, sans afféterie, nourrie par l'Antiquité, où les jeux de mots et de rimes émaillent les poèmes. Professeur d'éloquence et de belles-lettres, Passerat publiera très peu de son vivant, il était pourtant fort apprécié par ses pairs.
