        ORLANDO FURIOSO di M. Lodovico Ariosto, tutto Ricorretto et di Nuove Figure Adornato

      Venetia: Vencenzo Valgrifi, 1603. A very early printing of the complete and corrected ORLANDO FURIOSO, also with the Life of Ariosto by Battista Pigna. Letters, tables and scholarly critical works by Ruscelli and others. Magnificently illustrated with 51 full-page woodcut engravings within ornate borders, using the blocks from the first Valgrisi quarto editon of 1556 (46 in the ORLANDO, 5 additional in the appended ?Cinque Canti?), also with engraved architectural titlepage, imprint set in type in a cartouche in the lower part of the border, type ornament with the title, medallion portrait of Ariosto from the Giolito portrait of 1542 from the profile by Titian, devices of Ariosto and Valgrisi?s serpent device, half titles and beautifully engraved decorated large head and tail pieces and large historiated and arabesqe capital initials, printed in double column, Italic. 4to, full antique Italian vellum over stiff boards, spine with terra-cotta morocco label lettered and decorated in gilt. *8, A - Z8; Aa - Vv8; ie [xvi], 654, [32]. A very handsome copy in proper period binding. The paper just likely mellowed and toned by time, very occasionally, headlines slightly shaved, first gathering cropped a bit, the vellum very well preserved, sturdy and handsome. RARE AND EARLY ILLUSTRATED PRINTING OF ONE OF THE FOUR CORNERSTONES OF ITALIAN LITERATURE. Ariosto?s great cantos inspired by the crusades are considered his crowning achievement. Though first published in 1516 Ariosto considered this edition incomplete and imperfect. He continued to work on correcting and enlarging it throughout the remainder of his life thus the first ?complete? ORLANDO FURIOSO was not produced till 1532, the year prior to the author?s death by consumption. The extraordinary merits of this work cast into oblivion the numberless romantic poetry which inundated Italy during this period. This flawless work powerful, elegant and cultivated. In description and narrative he excites the reader?s deepest feelings and displays a vivacity of fancy with which no other poet can vie. ?The ORLANDO blocks were cut for Valgrisi?s first quarto edition of 1556 and follow Niccolo Zoppino?s idea of providing one illustration to each canto but going far beyond the Zoppino blocks in skill of design and cutting. They are the first full-page illustrations for Ariosto. They were placed in the instructive tradition of the Marcolini Dante, the illustration is mentioned on the title-page and at the beginning of Ruscelli?s 1556 dedication to Alfonso d?Este, Duke of Ferrara. Ruscelli explains to the reader the application of the rules of perspective to the multiple scenes in these cuts. The upper part of the block often becomes a map, offering, as Philip Hofer notes, a tour of the canto by hippogryph. Valgrisi?s artist often varied from Giolito?s in his choice of the principal scene for illustration and relegated the Giolito subjects to his background. Valgrisi?s blocks are printed within borders with figures and grotesques. He was able to use the same blocks without borders in an octavo of 1556 for the popular market. There are two different border designs for the illustrations and two smaller cherub borders for the ?argomento? to each canto.?

        ORLANDO FURIOSO and I CINQUE CANTI

      Venice: F. Valgrisi and N. Moretti, 1603. Early Printing. Hardcover. 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. 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.

        Jornada y muerte del Rey Don Sebastian de Portugal, sacada de las obras del Franchi, ciudadano de Genoua, y de otros muchos papeles autenticos, ...[false imprint:] "Valladolid" [= unidentified place in Iberia], heirs of Juan Íñiguez de Lequerica [= unknown printer & publisher], “1603” [= ca. 1670?]. Small 4to (19 x 14 cm). With the woodcut coat of arms of the dedicatee Juan Fernández de Velasco, Duke of Frías, on the title-page. Mottled tanned sheepskin (ca. 1800?), gold-tooled spine.

      Goldsmith, BMC Spanish & Portuguese S225; USTC 5018554 (mixed with 2? other eds.); cf. Palau 293612. Rare reprint (rarely distinguished from the more common first edition of 1603) of an important Spanish account of King Sebastião I of Portugal's ill-fated 1578 invasion of Moroccan and his death in battle, copying the 1603 edition's imprint, date, woodcut arms on the title-page and even the typesetting errors and list of errata. King Sebastião I of Portugal (1554-1578) inherited the crown at age three after the death of his grandfather João III. Educated by Jesuits, he combined religious fanaticism with an unbounded admiration for the military, presenting himself as a Christian knight who would fight the "misguided" Muslims in Africa and rescue them from their faith. He got his chance when the deposed Moroccan Sultan Abu Abdallah Mohammed II asked for his help. In 1578 Sebastião invaded Morocco with a large and expensive force, joined by Abu Abdallah's army of Moors and other Muslim opponents of the Sultan Ahmad al-Mansur. Although Ahmad died during the invasion, Sebastião's inexperience and rash attack in the bloody and disastrous Battle of the Three Kings at Alcazarquivir in the north of Morocco led to his own death, that of 8000 Portuguese troops, including much of the Portuguese nobility, and the capture of 15,000 more. Sebastião's body was never found and many supporters refused to believe had died and awaited his return for decades. San Román indicates on the title-page that he made use of Girolami Franchi Conestaggio's 1585 history of the union of Spain and Portugal, but also many other authentic documents. Sebastião's death without issue set off a struggle for the succession to the Portuguese crown and after the brief reign of his great uncle as Henrique I, King Phillip II of Spain managed to unite the Spanish and Portuguese crowns in 1580. The present reprint dates after ca. 1660, probably from Pedro II's regency, when it would have served to bolster the legitimacy of the troubled monarchy.With an old library shelf-mark on an endleaf. With tears into the text of the last 2 leaves, one crudely repaired with tape, somewhat browned throughout, water stains in the foot margin of several leaves, and an occasional small hole, spot or stain, but with generous margins and most leaves in good condition. The binding with minor damage to the head of the spine and some corners, but otherwise very good. A close copy of the first edition (much rarer than the original) of an important record of the disastrous Portuguese invasion of Morocco in 1578.

All beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand and most highlighted with gold. 2 complementary works, each with 2 parts in 1 volume. Folio (32 x 21

      Ad 1: Alden & Landis 651/53; Borba de Moraes, p. 19; ad 2: Alden & Landis 651/110; Borba de Moraes, pp. 634-635. First editions of two complementary works, in matching format, similar layout and beautifully and extensively illustrated, devoted to the lives, history and military careers of the three most important stadtholders and Princes of Orange to the time of publication, including a great deal of information on the Dutch conquests, trade and commerce in the Americas in general and Brazil in particular. In the present copy the engraved title-pages, portraits, coat of arms and illustrations are all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand, most of them highlighted in gold. Truusje Goedings, expert in 17th-century Dutch colourists, has identified the colouring as the work of Frans Koerten (1603-1668), the most acclaimed Dutch colourist of the middle of the 17th century.Something must have gone wrong with the printing or colouring of Maurits's portrait, for one can see that the portrait was printed on the leaf, but another print from the same plate has been pasted over it as a cancel.With a small tear in the foot of one map and water stains at the foot of the leaves in both works, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings have cracks in the joints. Beautifully coloured copies of two magnificently illustrated works on the Princes of Orange and Dutch activities in Brazil and elsewhere.

        Polesino di Rovigo

      Bologna 1603 - - RARISSIMA TIRATURA ORIGINALE di G. A. MAGINI, prima del cartiglio in basso a sinistra - Prima, rarissima, versione della carta del Polesine del Magini, antecedente alla versione successivamente publicata postuma dal figlio Fabio nel 'L’Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini', stampato per la prima volta a Bologna nel 1620. Tutte le carte dell’atlante vennero alle stampe prima del 1620, nelle loro stesure provvisorie, che successivamente furono corrette ed aggiornate per l’edizione definitiva. Tali prove sono rarissime, talvolta si trovano occasionalmente negli atlanti fattizi di alcune biblioteche, e presentano differenze sostanziali con quelle poi incluse nell’atlante. La differenza maggiore in questa mappa consiste nella mancanza del cartiglio, che verrà poi inserito in basso a sinistra. Il cartiglio contiene la dedica di Fabio Magini. Come osserva Almagià, la datazione e le fonti di questa carta maginiana, rappresentano una questione abbastanza complessa. Sembra certo che il Magini attinga informazioni da Giovanni Bonifacio, come desunto da diverse lettere di questi inviate al cartografo padovano. In particolare l'opera sarebbe una fusione tra la mappa del territorio Trevigiano del Rover/Bonifacio del 1591 (Bifolco-Ronca tav. 53) e la carta del Polesine del 1602 (Bifolco-Ronca tav. 57) che il Bonifacio inviò al Magini, come risulta da una lettera del 28 gennaio 1603. Per la realizzazione delle lastre il Magini si servì di due dei più famosi intagliatori dell’epoca; il belga Arnorldo Arnoldi e l’inglese Benjamin Wright. Il presente esemplare mostra un'evidente serie di "difetti" di morsura, dovuti all'acido nell'uso dell'acquaforte. Tali "difetti" e le evidenti tracce di non pulitura della lastra, oltre al segno fresco e ricco di toni dell'incisione, lasciano pensare che questa sia una prova di stampa della lastra. Acquaforte e bulino, in perfetto stato di conservazione. RARISSIMA. Almagià, L'Italia di Giovanni Antonio Magini, pp. 44-5, n. 10. Dimensioni 475 345mm

Esemplare edito da Jodocus Hondius e tratto dall'edizione francese del Mercator/Hondius Atlas, circa 1630. Prima carta dedicata all'Italia dal grande umanista e geografo, considerato il vero fondatore della geografia storica. Con margini graduati e senza reticolato, l'opera è di chiara derivazione mercatoriana. Incisione in rame, in ottime condizioni. Magnifico esemplare, molto contrastato. An exceptional impression of this map of ancient Italy, engraved by Jodocus Hondius and published in Bertius's 'Theatrum Geographiæ Veteris'. It was not until 1630 that Jansson used this plate in his editions of the Mercator atlas. Copperplate, very good. R. Borri "L'Italia nelle antiche carte " (2011), scheda 87 Dimensioni 500 365mm

        Ligvria nunc Oragenvensis/ Mantva Dvcatvs

      Colonia 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.

Erste Ausgabe. - Coler (1530-1587) studierte in Wittenberg zunächst Theologie und Medizin, widmete sich später aber auf Anraten Melanchtons dem Studium der Rechtswissenschaft. Er ging an die Universität Leipzig und hörte dort bei dem berühmten französischen Juristen Pierre Loriot, der von der Universität Bourges gekommen war, als Vertreter der sogenannten humanistischen Jurisprudenz. Coler wurde später aber stark von den großen sächsischen Praktikern an der Universität Leipzig, zum Beispiel Modestinus Pistorius und Christoph Zobel, beeinflußt. Seine Professur in Jena gab er im Jahre 1569 auf, um als Rechtsanwalt in Leipzig seine berufliche Laufbahn fortzusetzen. Er wurde dort sogar Mitglied des sächsischen Appellationsgerichts. Im Jahre 1573 kehrte er an die Universität Jena zurück, wo er Ordinarius primarius der juristischen Fakultät wurde.

With 2 folding engraved maps, 15 folding engraved plates and 1 engraved plate, all except one signed by Daniel Veelwaard. Later green half cloth

      - Bierens de Haan 945; Kemper 1603; Saakes IV (1804), pp. 19, 50. First edition of an illustrated report on water management, published by three leading technical officers on behalf of the water board of Rijnland, here complete with all four appendices, sometimes lacking. In their report, Frederik Willem Conrad (1769-1805), Arie Blanken Jansz. (1766-1824) and Simon Kros (1746-1813) evaluate the several possibilities of connecting the river Oude Rijn with the North Sea. In 1803 a research commission chaired by Conrad came up with the present report, providing a definite scheme and an acceptable calculation of the costs. The water board accepted the proposals later that year and preparations for realizing the drainage canal commenced. In 1807 the outlet was completed, providing Rijnland with an excellent facility that proved its great benefits in the long term. The report includes several printed appendices and 18 engraved maps, profiles and technical drawings. Besides 2 overview maps, they include engravings showing several tracks of the proposed channel, detailed cross-sections, and profiles of soil test bores and the instruments used. Only very slightly browned, margins of a few plates slightly soiled, otherwise in very good condition. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities.

Algunas páginas amarronadas. Andreas Schott, Jesuita y humanista natural de Amberes, instalado en España, donde impartió griego en la Universidad de Toledo y en la de Zaragoza, publicó junto con el historiador alemán Johann Pistorius esta importante compilación de las obras históricas sobre la Monarquía hispánica más importantes publicadas hasta el momento. “Los escritos incluidos en la Hispania illustrata van desde las descripciones corográficas a las historias generales, pasando por –entre otros tipos–, libros de antigüedades, crónicas de reinados, así como historias bélicas o de sucesos importantes, vidas de santos, y cartas eruditas y de controversia. Ocupan también importante espacio los catálogos reales y nobiliarios, y las historias de reinos específicos de la Monarquía, en particular del aragonés. De entre los ochenta y siete escritos compilados por Schott y Pistorius –obra de sesenta autores distintos–, sobresalen diecisiete, casi todos ellos por encima de las cien páginas. Seis corresponden al primer tomo: Paralipomenon Hispaniae, de Joan de Margarit; las Historiae Hispanicae, de Rodrigo Sánchez de Arévalo; De Rebus Hispaniae, de Maríneo Sículo; el Chronicon Hispaniae de Juan Vassée; las Décadas sobre los Reyes Católicos, de Nebrija; y De rebus gestis Francisci Ximenii [de Cisneros], de Gómez de Castro. Del segundo tomo destacan cuatro obras: la ya mencionada De Portugalliae coniunctione., de Conestaggio; Antiquitatum Lusitaniae, de Lucio André de Rezende; De rebus Hispaniae, de Rodrigo Jiménez de Rada; y los veinte primeros libros de la Historia de rebus Hispanicis, de Mariana. El hecho de que esta última obra sea la más extensa de las elegidas por Schott –con 742 pp. en total–, revela un aprecio del jesuita por la obra de su amigo que confirma su probable adscripción a la defensa de una Monarquía Católica moderada y unida que realizara Mariana. “ [LA APORTACIÓN DE LOS JESUITAS A LA DIFUSIÓN DE LA HISTORIA: EL HUMANISTA ANDREAS SCHOTT Y SU HISPANIA ILLUSTRATA.

        De venarum ostiolis.

      Padua: Lorenzo Pasquati, 1603. First edition, very rare first separate issue (see below), "of the first systematic study of the structure, distribution and position of the venous valves. Although the valves of the veins had been observed previously by G.B. Canano and Amato Lusitano, Fabrici studied them anew on the basis of his own observations. Perhaps because he analyzed anatomical structures in terms of their purpose, he interpreted the function of the valves as slowing down the influx of blood in order to distribute it more evenly to the various parts of the body. Although Fabrici's analysis was in part erroneous, De venarum ostiolis became his most influential work, in that it inspired his student, William Harvey, to conceptualize the circulation of the blood" (Norman). "The sumptuously printed folios which Fabricius published in 1603-1604 were issued separately, and unbound. Though they escaped Choulant's notice, they are among the rarest and most beautiful works in the history of anatomical illustration. The plates are magnificent; in fact nothing on their scale had been seen since the days of Vesalius" (Franklin). The work is most often found bound as part of Fabricius' Opera anatomica (1625), without a separate title page. Franklin cites only the Royal College of Surgeons, the Royal College of Physicians, the Radcliffe Library (Oxford) and the New York Academy of Medicine - all copies bound up under the 1625 general title but with the 1603 title preserved - and a copy without separate title in the library of the Royal Society of Medicine. Unlike the copy Franklin used for his facsimile, the present copy (like the Norman copy and the copy in the Royal College of Surgeons) does not bear the words 'Superiorum Permissu' at the end of the text on p. 22. Since this license note does appear, in the same position, in the other four treatises published by Fabricius in 1603 and 1604, it is reasonable to suppose that copies without the license are earlier than those with it. AE/RBH list only 6 copies since 1950. "The first and foremost medium through which the influence of Padua on Harvey becomes palpable is the personality and teaching of the anatomical luminary of the school, Hieronymous Fabricius of Aquapendente (1537-1619). It was in 1603 that he published his treatise on the venous valves. He must have been occupied with it at the vey time when Harvey sat at his feet, namely between 1600 and 1602. It was a consideration of the arrangement of the venous valves in relation to the heart which, as Harvey told Boyle, touched off the spark of his discovery. The venous valves had been described before Fabricius, but the latter gave the first comprehensive anatomical account. He missed, however, the main point - their true function which is bound up with the centripetal direction of the venous blood flow. Fabricius remained an advocate of the Galenic assumption of its centrifugal direction, from the heart towards the periphery and the viscera. To have raised Harvey's criticism would, then, constitute Fabricius' main influence, as it also did with regard to essential questions concerning the generation of animals. It must be remembered, however, that Fabricius, the greatest pupil of the great Falloppio, the man who founded the celebrated Paduan Anatomical Theatre and School, could not have failed to direct his pupil's interest into the proper channels of dynamic anatomy and to the very foci of his lifelong endeavor - the blood vessels on the one hand and the generation of animals on the other. For it is to both of these fields that much of Fabricius' work has been devoted. In it the Aristotelian lead and especially the spirit of comparative anatomical enquiry is just as recognizable in Harvey's work. Indeed, the latter nominated Aristotle and Fabricius as his "leaders" (Pagel, pp. 19-20). "[De venarum ostiolis], published in Padua, consists of twenty-three folio pages, supplemented by eight beautiful plates. In it Fabrici reports that he had first observed the valves of the veins in 1574 (the first demonstration to his students was in 1578 or 1579), as was recognized by his student Salomon Alberti, who published, with Fabrici's permission, a preliminary illustration of the venous valves (Nuremberg, 1585). Although the valves of the veins had been studied previously by G. B. Canano and by Amato Lusitano (indeed, a dispute arising therefrom had involved Vesalius, Eustachi, and Falloppio), Fabrici made no use of their contributions, perhaps intentionally; he describes the venous valves ex novo, systematically and accurately. "His interest in reconciling his observations with the traditional Galenic concepts of function misled Fabrici into missing the real significance of the venous valves, however. He accepts the notion of the blood flowing centrifugally, drawn by the viscera, and interprets the function of the venous valves to be the slowing down of the influx of the blood to provide for its even distribution to various parts of the body. He thus gives a teleological account of the number, alternate positioning, and conformation of the valves, pointing out that they are not present in the large veins of the trunk, such as the vena cava, in which the blood flows directly to the viscera and vital organs; they are found instead in the veins of the limbs, where they prevent an excessive inflow of blood, which would both cause swelling and deprive the vital organs of nourishment. He describes the valves as corresponding to the openings of collateral branches of the veins and calls them ostiola. In addition to thus regulating the flow of the blood mechanically, the valves also serve to prevent excessive stretching of the blood vessels and to reinforce the walls of the veins. "This is demonstrated by the formation of varicose veins in those who do heavy work; the blood of such persons is more dense and held longer by the valves, which become dilated, then subside as the veins dilate. The valves are further demonstrable by the application of a tourniquet to the upper arm; they then appear as a series of regularly spaced knots on its surface. Fabrici observed that if, after ligating the vein, one pressed upon it with a finger, one could observe the valves in action--acting, he thought, to retard the progress of the blood; his misinterpretation may have been due in part to his confusion of laboratory observation with the clinical symptoms of valvular insufficiency that he had noted, particularly in cases of varicosity. "Perhaps the most notable contribution of De venarum ostiolis is that William Harvey drew upon it in beginning his studies of the circulation of blood. Harvey was the pupil of Fabrici--indeed, he even lived for a while in his house--and from Fabrici's work he obtained the illustrations that would, with substantial modifications, serve him for his De motu cordis" (DSB).

        Ritratto dell'imperatore Rodolfo II

      1603. "Bulino, 1603, in basso al centro 'S.C. Mtis. pictor Iohan ab Ach Inuentor.', seguito da tre righe in latino ""Augustissimo, Invinctissimo... Aegidius Sadeler. Anno M.D.C.III". Nella cornice ovale del ritratto 'Rvdolphvs II Romanorvm Imperator Avgvstvs: rex Hvngariæ.Bohe.etc.' Da un soggetto di Hans von Aachen. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, uno strappo longitudinale restaurato, a circa metà dell'immagine, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questo ritratto dell'imperatore del Sacro Romano Impero Rodolfo II (1583-1612), fu inciso da Aegidius Sadeler da un dipinto di Hans von Aachen. Il Sadeler era l'incisore ufficiale di Rodolfo II e, come lo scultore ufficiale - Adriaen de Vries, dedicò molte energie nei numerosi ritratti dell'imperatore. In questo ritratto allegorico, Rodolfo II è rapprsentato come trionfante: indossa la corona d'alloro del vincitore e un'armatura con una fibbia che porta le insegne dell'Ordine del Toson d'Oro. Inoltre, nell'iscrizione che circonda il ritratto ovale, è appellato Augusto.L'aquila e la capra dalla coda di pesce nella parte superiore della stampa sono emblemi che sono stati effetticamente utilizzati dal primo imperatore romano, nonché dai illustri predecessori di Rodolfo. Ai lati del ritratto sono personificazioni del regno illuminato di Rodolfo. A sinistra, un'erma di marmo con testa di Minerva, in piedi su un basamwnto su cui è scritto "constabit" (forte), rappresenta la ricca cultura umanistica promossa dall'imperatore a Praga; mentre a destra, la figura del Tempo, in piedi su un basamento con l'iscrizione INSTAT (continuo), rappresenta la promessa infinita del suo governo. Nella sezione in basso, due prigionieri turchi incatenati, sottomessi dai fulmini di Giove, simboleggiano l'inevitabile sconfitta dei nemici di Rodolfo. Ci sono state numerose varianti di questo ritratto ufficiale di corte, con lievi variazioni nella composizione e nell'iconografia. Sadeler, che successivamente lavorò come incisore imperiale anche di Mattia I e Ferdinando II, ottenne la licenza di pubblicare le sue lastre nel 1601." "Engraving, 1603, lettered plate, bottom center 'S.C. Mtis. pictor Iohan ab Ach Inuentor.', followed by three lines in latin on the lower margin, ""Augustissimo, Invinctissimo... Aegidius Sadeler. Anno M.D.C.III.' Lettered in the oval frame 'Rvdolphvs II Romanorvm Imperator Avgvstvs: rex Hvngariæ.Bohe.etc.'. After a subject by Hans von Aachen Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed close to the platemark, a restored longitudinal tear one skilfully restored longitudinal tear, near the center of the image, otherwise in very good condition. This allegorical portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor, Rudolph II (1583-1612), was engraved by Aegidius Sadeler, after a painting by Adriaen de Vries. Wearing the victor's laurel crown and dressed in armor with a clasp bearing the insignia of the Order of the Golden Fleece, Rudolf II is represented as a triumphant emperor. He is described in the inscription surrounding the oval portrait as Augustus. The eagle and fish-tailed goat at the top of the print are emblems that were indeed used by the first Roman emperor, as well as by Rudolf's illustrious, more immediate predecessors. Bracketing the portrait are personifications of Rudolf's enlightened reign. At left, Hermathena, standing on a plinth inscribed constabit (strong), represents the rich humanist culture presided over by the emperor in Prague; while at right, the figure of Time, standing on a plinth inscribed instat (continuous), represents the never-ending promise of his rule. In the section below, two shackled Turkish prisoners, subdued by Jupiter's thunderbolts, symbolize the inevitable defeat of Rudolf's enemies. There were numerous variations of this official court portrait, with slight changes in the composition and iconography. Sadeler, who worked successively as imperial engraver for Rudolf II, Matthias, and Ferdinand II, was awarded a license to publish his prints in 1601, prompting the increased circulation of glorifying portraits like this one. Aegidius Sadeler was the Rudolph II's official engraver. Like the imperial scultor Adriaen de Vries, Sadeler devoted him main portrait energies to depicting the majesty od Rudolf II."

Bonne édition augmentée, de cet ouvrage classique sur la possession démoniaque, le plus important traité composé par Petrus Thyraeus (1546-1601), jésuite, professeur de théologie à Mayence puis à Würzburg. Premier théologien à considérer la possession comme un phénomène objectif et indépendant de la conscience du sujet, il tente une approche systématique des phénomènes de possession. Il distingue, à cet effet, entre l’occupation du corps et de l’esprit, par le démon, et propose un classement des symptômes en fonction du sujet et des manifestations. En conclusion, il questionne la légitimité de l’intervention des hommes d’Eglise dans la pratique de l’exorcisme et si celui-ci doit être pratiqué quelque soit le démon ou le consentement du possédé.

        De brutorum loquela

      Padua: Lorenzo Pasquati, 1603. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (415 x 277 mm). [6], 27 [1] pp., index bound at beginning. Signatures: pi2 A-D2. Woodcut printer's device on title-page, ornamental woodcut initials and tail-pieces. Title-leave torn at gutter not affecting text. Recent half vellum, new endpapers. A fine, wide-margined copy. Exceedingly rare as here with the title-leave and final blank. ----FIRST EDITION of Fabrici's treatise on the language of beasts; "a subject very curious in itself, and which has by no means sufficiently attracted notice even in the experimental age. He demonstrates, from the different structure of the organs of speech, that no brute can ever rival man; their chief instrument being the throat, which we uses only for vowel sounds." (H. Hallam, Introduction to the literature of Europe in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries, Vol. 4, 1839, p.54-5). Whereas Fabrici's De locutione et eius instrumentis deals with the vocal organs of man, De brutorum loquela in turn "deals with the comparable, but more limited, activity in animals. 'Bruts' is the term Fabricius uses for 'animals' when he does not mean to include man among them. It is of course entirely appropriate for Fabricius to have separated these two treatments, since man is, as he says, the only animal which does have speech [...] and it is THE feature which so completely differentiates him from other creatures." (A. Wear et al., The Medical Renaissance of the Sixteenth Century, p.205). Very Good.

        Russiae, Moscoviae et Tartariae descriptio. Auctore Antonio Ienkesono Anglo, edita Londini Anno 1562...

      1603. Decorativa mappa della Russia basata, come espressamente dichiarato nel cartiglio con il titolo, sul lavoro di Anthony Jenkinson, edito a Londra nel 1562. Jenkinson compì diversi viaggi in Russia: nel 1559, 1561, 1566, 1567, e basò le sue mappe proprio sulle sue dirette osservazioni. Per la parte orientale di questa carta, si servì anche del lavoro di S. Herberstein, mentre per parte occidentale sulla mappa di A. Wied. La mappa è ricca di cartigli con testo di carattere storico ed etnografico. Decorano la mappa numerose vignette raffiguranti indigeni, animali e scene mitologiche. Splendido esemplare, pubblicato nell'edizione latina del 1603 del Theatrum Ortbis Terrarum. Incisione su rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Testo latino al verso. Decorative map of Russia by Ortelius. The cartographic source for this work, as declarated on the left cartouche, is Jenkinson's 1562 Russia map (Karrow 43/1, p. 318; Meurer p. 175-176). Anthony Jenkinson travelled in Russia in 1559, 1561, 1566 and 1567 and much was based on his own observations. Additionally, for the Eastern part of this map Jenkinson based himself on Herberstein, for the Western part on Wied. The vignettes include over a dozen indigenous and mythical scenes, costumed locals and animals. Copper engraving, finely hand coloured, in perfect condition. Latin text on verso. Example printed in the 1603 Latinb edition of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Anversa Antwerpen Ort 162 (Koeman/Meurer: 46, Karrow: 1/66, vdKrogtAN: 1800:31). 452 357

        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.
