        Paesaggio con grande albero

      1603. Acquaforte e bulino, 1603, datata e monogrammata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa rara opera è parte di una serie di sei incisioni, della stessa misura e stile, datata 1603, estremamente all'avanguardia nella crescente passione fiorentina per il paesaggio. Furono anche forieri di un rinnovato interesse della città per l'incisione, che si sarebbe poi sviluppato ulteriormente negli anni a venire, principalmente sotto il patronato della famiglia Medici. Data la mancanza di punti di riferimento nazionali, l'artista cercò un modello nell'incisore nordico Paul Bril, al quale sembra essersi ispirato per la realizzazione di questa opera, in particolare al suo Paesaggio Montano con Eremita in Preghiera (Hollstein 3) o alle Vedute della Campagna Romana, datate 1590. Bril fu attivo in Francia e in Italia e morì a Roma nel 1626. Nelle composizioni di entrambi gli artisti, un enorme albero in primo piano forma il motivo principale, affiancato da un lato da elementi architettonici nella zona mediana e, dall'altro, da una veduta in lontananza. Per questa opera, Cantagallina sottopose la lastra a due diversi momenti di morsura per ottenere linee di diverso peso. La vista sullo sfondo che si intravede oltre gli edifici sulla sinistra è infatti piuttosto leggera, mentre le linee più ampie che delineano l'argine roccioso e le piante in basso al centro sono state evidentemente ottenute con una esposizione all'acido più prolungata. L'effetto che si ottiene è quello di un set da palcoscenico, con piani di recessione sfalsati, piuttosto che quello di una reale prospettiva. È stato poi usato il bulino per imbrunire le foglie in alto a sinistra nell'albero centrale e dare maggior vigore a quelle in alto a destra. Famoso principalmente per i suoi paesaggi realizzati a penna e inchiostro, Remigio Cantagallina fu attivo a Firenze per più di cinquanta anni, durante i quali realizzò più di sessanta incisioni datate tra il 1603 e il 1635. Oltre la metà delle sue opere rappresentano paesaggi, mentre molte altre sono rappresentazioni di festival e soggetti teatrali. Nativo di Borgo San Sepolcro, Cantagallina raggiunse la sua maturità artistica intorno al 1600. È possibile attribuirgli un solo dipinto, frutto della collaborazione artistica col fratello Antonio. Si tratta dell'Ultima Cena, realizzato dai due artisti nel 1604 per un monastero della loro città natale. Insieme ad Antonio e all'altro fratello Giovanni Francesco, anch'essi registrati come allievi, Cantagallina studiò presso la scuola di Giulio Parigi a Firenze. Mantenne una relazione lavorativa con Parigi per anni, incidendo i suoi soggetti teatrali e di festival. Potrebbe essere stato lui stesso ad incoraggiare Parigi, nel 1608, a rivolgere la propria abilità di artista verso l'incisione, per un lavoro a più mani in cui lui stesso fu partner. La potenza espressiva della morsura realizzata in più fasi di Cantagallina influenzò sicuramente Jacques Callot, con cui collaborò nel 1616 alla realizzazione di Guerra d'Amore. Nelle prime opere, i paesaggi di Cantagallina riflettono i prototipi dei panorami settentrionali; esiste tuttavia una serie di quattro incisioni più piccole, datate 1609 e rappresentanti eventi religiosi, di stile più miniaturistico, in cui le figure sono più briose e più vicine a quelle dei disegni di Parigi. I disegni dell'artista, molti dei quali datati, includono anche un album che documenta una gita nella parte settentrionale dei Paesi Bassi (1612 - 1613). L'ultimo disegno conosciuto è datato 1655. Nelle ultime opere Cantagallina era solito posizionare un enorme albero, di teatrale memoria, in primo piano; lo stile e l'esecuzione sono man mano divenuti topograficamente più accurati e più atmosferici. Etching and engraving, 1603, dated and signed at lower right. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with thin margins, in excellent condition. Famous mainly for his pen - and - ink landscapes, Remigio Cantagallina worked in Florence for fifty years; along this period, he realized more than sixty engravings between 1603 and 1635. Over a half of his works depict landscapes, while others represent festival and theatre subject. Cantagallina was born in Borgo San Sepolcro and he reached his artistic maturity around 1600. There is only one painting that can be ascribed to the artist, which he realized together with his brother Antonio. It is The Last Supper, painted in 1604 for a monastery in Borgo. Together with Antonio and the other brother Giovanni Francesco, both registered as students there, Cantagallina studied in the school of Giulio Parigi in Florence. He maintained a working relationship with Parigi for many years, engraving his theatrical subjects and his festivals. Very likely, it was Cantagallina himself who encouraged Parigi, in 1608, to use his ability in the art of engraving, and the two artists cooperated to the realization of a project. The power of the staged biting of Cantagallina influenced Jacques Callot, with whom he worked in 1616 on The War of Love. In the first period, Cantagallina's landscapes mirror the Northern prototypes; nevertheless, there is a set of four smaller engravings, dated 1609 and depicting religious events, which bears a more miniaturistic style, whose figures are more lively and closer the Parigi's drawings. The artist's drawings , many of which dated, include a sketchbook documenting a trip to the northern part of the Netherlands. The last known drawing bears the date 1655. In his last works, Cantagallina used to put a huge tree in the foreground, in the centre of the composition, reminding the theatrical scenes; his style and execution became more topographically accurate and more atmospheric. This rare work is part of a series of six engravings, with same size and style, dated 1603, which was in the forefront of the growing passion for landscapes in Florence. They were also foreboding of a renewed interest in etching in the whole city, which had its great development with the patronage of the Medici family. Since there were no national points of reference, the artist found his model in the Northern engraver Paul Bril, from whom he derived his inspiration for the realization of this plate, especially from his A Mountain Landscape with Hermit Praying (Hollstein 3) or his Views of the Roman Campagna, both dated 1590. Bril worked in France and Italy and died in Rome in 1626. In both Bril's and Cantagallina's compositions, a huge tree in the foreground becomes the central subject, flanked by architectural elements on one side and by a view in the background on the other. For this work, Cantagallina etched the plate twice to achieve lines with different weight. As a matter of fact, the view in the background behind the buildings on the left is very light, while wider lines outlining the rocky mound and the plants in the lower centre have been achieved with a longer exposure to the acid. The final effect recalls a stage set, with different recession planes instead that a real perspective. Cantagallina used also a burin to darken the leaves of the tree on upper left and to strengthen those on upper right. Reed & Wallace, Italian etchers of the Renaissance & Barocque, p. 210, 107.

Iniziò la sua carriera come costruttore di strumenti scientifici cimentandosi anche come stampatore delle sue stesse opere. Pubblicò infatti esaurienti trattati sulla costruzione di strumenti geometrici, oltre a celebri opere di linguistica e lessicografia, una per tutte il celebre Dizionario Francese - Tedesco - Tedesco - Francese. Di fede Calvinista dovette abbandonare le Fiandre nel 1584, da qui si trasferì prima ad Heidelberg dove avviò una scuola e più tardi nel 1590 si spostò a Norimberga dove i suoi successi ebbero effettivo inizio. Hulsius fu dapprima indìsegnante di lingue e pubblico notaio, ma soprattutto fu traduttore e autore di un impressionante numero di opere, per altro tutte assai approfondite, che stampava e vendeva egli stesso. E' celebre anche per la traduzione in tedesco e la pubblicazione di numerosi volumi sulle prime esplorazioni geografiche, attività che proseguì per tutta la vita, pubblicando ben 26 titoli tra il 1598 e il 1650. Pubblicò sempre da se un trattato sull'uso del quadrante e naturalmente queste biografie degli Imperatori Romani illustrate dalle monete antiche, che per la maggior parte provenivano dalla sua collezione. Morì a Francoforte nel 1606.

Claudio Acquaviva.. dal p. Valentino Carvaglio.Alessandro Valignano was a Jesuit missionary born in Chieti, who played an important role in the introduction of Catholicism to the Far East, and especially to Japan.Valignano joined the Society of Jesus in 1566, and was sent to East Asia in 1573 as Visitor of Missions in the Indies. It was his responsibility to examine and whenever necessary reorganize mission structures and methods throughout India, China and Japan. Valignano formed a basic strategy for Catholic proselytism, which is usually called "adaptationism". He attempted to avoid cultural frictions by making a compromise with local customs that other missionaries viewed as conflicting with Catholic values. His strategy was in contrast to those of mendicant orders including Franciscans and Dominicans, whom Valignano worked hard to block from entering Japan and later lead to the Chinese Rites controversy.Valignano left Macau for Japan in July 1579, leaving behind instructions for Michele Ruggieri, who was to arrive within days. Once Ruggieri started studying Chinese and realized the immensity of the task, he wrote to Valignano, asking him to send Matteo Ricci to Macau as well, to share the work. Ricci joined him in Macau on August 7, 1582. Together, the two were to become the first European scholars of China and the Chinese language.Valignano made the first visit to Japan from 1579 to 1582. In 1581, he wrote Il Cerimoniale per i Missionari del Giappone to set forth guidelines for Jesuits. In the writing, he mapped Jesuit hierarchy to that of Zen Buddhists even though he detested them. He claimed that, in order not to be despised by Japanese, every Jesuit should behave according to the class he belonged to. Such a luxurious life and authoritarian attitudes among Jesuits in Japan were criticized not only by rival mendicant orders but also by some Jesuits. In fact, Valignano remained in a minority within the Jesuits in Japan.On his first arrival in Japan, Valignano was horrified by what he considered to be, at the least, negligent, and at the worst, abusive and un - Christian practices on the part of mission personnel. He immediately began to reform many aspects of the mission. Language study had always been one of the core problems for the mission. By 1595, Valignano could boast in a letter that not only had the Jesuits printed a Japanese grammar and dictionary, but also several books (mostly the lives of saints and martyrs) entirely in Japanese.The need for a natively trained clergy was obvious to Valignano, and so, in 1580, a recently emptied Buddhist monastery in Arima province was converted into a nascent seminary. There twenty - two young Japanese converts began to the process of instruction towards holy orders. The process was repeated two years later at Azuchi, where the seminarians numbered thirty - three.Valignano's purpose is quite clear. The seminaries were typical Jesuit institutions of humanistic education and theological exploration but their style of living was wholly Japanese. They were carefully designed to blend, as much as possible, Japanese sensibilities with European ideology.As the scale of the mission began to expand rapidly, financial difficulties began to arise. All of the Jesuit institutions: the seminaries, the schools, the printing presses and the missions required money to finance. In 1580, when Father Vilela converted the daimyo Lmura Sumitada who controlled the port of Nagasaki, the port, which was then merely a small fishing village, was ceded as a gift to the control of the Society, as was the fortress in the harbor. Under Jesuit control, Nagasaki would grow from a town with only one street to an international port rivaling the influence of Goa or Macau. Jesuit ownership of the port of Nagasaki gave the Society a concrete monopoly in taxation over all imported goods coming into Japan.This breach of ecclesiastical practice did not go unnoticed by the heads of other European missions in the area, or by those who make their living via inter - Asiatic trade. Eventually, the Pope was forced to intervene, and, in 1585, the Holy See ordered an immediate cessation of all mercantile activities by the Society.In his last years Alessandro Valignano exercised his position as Visitor by overseeing all of the Jesuit missions in Asia from the major Portuguese port of Macau, but his primary focus was always on the Japanese mission. By 1600, the Jesuit mission there was in decline because of persecution from the Kanpaku Toyotomi Hideyoshi and later, most severely, under the Tokugawas.Valignano died in Macau in January 1606. His legacy is extraordinary. The four Japanese who visited the Pope in 1586 (the first official Japanese embassy to western Europe) were sent by Valignano. He founded the St. Paul's Jesuit college in Macau. He visited Japan three times: in 1579 - 1581, in 1590 - 1592, and in 1598 - 1603. Valignano paved the way for a closer relationship between Asian and European peoples by advocating equal treatment of all human beings. He was a great admirer of the Japanese people and envisioned a future when Japan would be one of the leading Christian countries in the world (cf. J.F. Schutte, Valignano's Mission Principles for Japan, St. Louis, 1980, and U. App, The Birth of Orientalism, Philadelphia, 2010 pp. 18 - 24, 139 - 146).II - III) FIRST EDITIONS. Francesco Pasio, a native of Bologna, was a Jesuit missionary who worked in a number of places in East Asia, including Goa (1578), Malacca (1582), Japan (1583), and Macao, where he died in 1612. His superior was father Alessandro Valignano. He was Vice - provincial of the Order in China and Japan from 1600 to 1611. De Backer - Sommervogel, VIII, col. 405, VI, coll. 327 - 328, H.

        Ligvria nunc Oragenvensis/ Mantva Dvcatvs

      1603. Rarissima carta geografica, due carte stampate al verso e al recto del foglio, tratte dal "elitiae Italiae et index viatorius, indicans itinera ab urbe Roma ad omnes in Italia". Cyprian Eichovius è lo pseudonimo di Matthias Quad (Deventer 1557 - Colonia 1613). Come spesso succedeva all'epoca per sfuggire alle persecuzioni cattoliche contro i protestanti Matthias Quad usò per la sua attività diversi pseudoni¬mi, tra cui quelli noti di C. Eichovius, M. Quadus, M. Quad von Kinckelbach e quello di Konrad Loew. Fuggito dall'Olanda in Germania nel 1587, studiò ad Heidelberg e divenne poi uno dei più prolifici esponenti della cosiddetta Scuola Cartografica di Colonia, durata per circa mezzo secolo (1570 - 1620 ca.) e formata principalmente da rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi tra i quali spiccano lo stesso Quad e Frans Hogenberg che ne fu il fondatore. Nel 1594 Quad pub¬blica a Colonia Europae, totius terrarum orbis partis praestantissimae descriptio. Nel 1596 ca., sempre a Colonia pubblica Typus Orbis Terrarum, ad Imitationem Universalis Gerhardi Mercatoris, un planisfero sulla base dell'opera marcatoria - na e nel 1600 pubblica il suo primo atlante mondiale autonomo: Geographisch Handtbuch, che è anche il primo edito in lingua tedesca. Nel 1608 ne uscì una edizione in latino Fasciculus Geographicus con quattro mappe inedite incise da Johann Bussemacher, suo assiduo collaboratore. A causa dei suoi numerosi pseudonimi la sua vasta produzione editoriale rimane ancora da identificare completamente. Le carte del Quad ebbero poca fortuna poiché stampate nel periodo dei grandi successi degli atlanti Orteliani; pertanto nessuna ristampa dell'atlante è nota, rendendolo rarissimo e molto ricercato nel mercato antiquario.

Einbandbezug am Rücken und dem Vorderdeckel beschädigt. Lederschließbändchen nur fragmentarisch vorhanden. Durchgehend gebräunt, teils stärker. Nur vereinzelt mit handschriftlichen Anmerkungen.

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.

        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]

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.

        Historiae martyrum Gorcomiensium, maiori numero Fratrum Minorum, qui pro fide Catholica a perduellibus interfecti sunt anno Domini M.D. LXXII. Libri quatuor.

      Baltazaris Belleri, typographi iurati, sub Circino Aureo, Douai 1603 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo. pp. (xvi), 302. lacking last blank. Roman letter. Woodcut floriated initials, typographical head and tail-pieces. Light age yellowing, a few quires slightly browned (poor quality paper), insignificant worm trail at gutter over a few quires, rare marginal mark. A good, clean, copy in C19th three quarter vellum over speckled paper boards, a little soiled. Rare first edition of the best contemporary account of the massacre of nineteen Catholics by the &#145;Watergeuzen&#146; or &#145;Sea-beggars&#146; under the command of Willem II van der Marck, Lord of Lumey, at the town of Gorkum in 1572. Estius, born in Gorkum, was an important Counter Reformation theologian, who studied theology at Louvain, and became chancellor of Douai University where he worked closely with the English Recusants, Allen and Thomas Stapleton to edit the Bible of Douai, the standard Bible for English-speaking Catholics for three centuries. In 1569 William of Orange, who had openly placed himself at the head of the party of revolt in Holland, granted letters of marque to a number of vessels manned by crews of pirates drawn from all nationalities and by the end of 1569 there were 84 &#145;Sea Beggar&#146; ships in action. At first they were content merely to plunder both by sea and land, carrying their booty to English ports to refit and replenish their stores. However, in 1572, Elizabeth I abruptly refused to admit the Sea Beggars to her harbours. Without refuge, they made a desperate attack on Brielle, which they seized by surprise, in the absence of the Spanish garrison, on 1 April 1572. Encouraged by this success, they took Flushing. The capture of these two towns prompted several nearby towns to declare for revolt, starting a chain reaction resulting in the majority of Holland joining in a general revolt. In June, Dortrecht and Gorkum fell into their hands and at Gorkum they captured nine Franciscans monks with two lay brothers from the same monastery, and also rounded up the parish priests. "After enduring much suffering and abuse in the prison at Gorkum (26 June-6 July) the first fifteen martyrs were transferred to Brielle. On their way to Dortrecht they were exhibited for money to the curious and arrived at Brielle 13 July. On the following day, Lumey, the commander of the Watergeuzen, caused the martyrs to be interrogated and ordered a sort of disputation. In the meantime the four other martyrs also arrived. It was exacted of each that he abandon his belief in the Blessed Sacrement and in papal supremacy. All remained firm in their faith. Meanwhile there came a letter from William of Orange which enjoined all those in authority to leave priests and religious unmolested. Nevertheless Lumey caused the martyrs to be hanged in the night of 9 July, in a turf shed amid cruel mutilations. Their beatification took place on 14 Nov., 1675, and their canonization on 29 June, 1865." Catholic Encyclopaedia. Estius was still studying at Louvain when his native town was captured. His father, brother and uncle were imprisoned. Both his father and brother escaped, but Nicolas Pieck, his uncle, Superior of the Franciscan convent at Gorcum, was amongst those put to death.

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;. A very good copy of this most interesting work. BM STC It. C17th. p. 976. Alden 603/122. Sabin 106254. JFB Z3. Houzeau and Lancaster 12748. (1609 edn. only) Italian [Attributes: Hard Cover]
