Plutarch (c.46-120 AD); North, Sir Thomas (1535-1604)
London: London: By Richard Field for John Norton, 1603. 3rd Edition . Full leather. Very Good. Folio; [16], 1103, [1]; [4], 136, [32]pp. In contemporary full calf over five raised spine bands (somewhat worn with minor loss of leather to corners and head of spine), with blind rolls above and below spine bands and to board margins, later gilt-lettered red leather spine label to second compartment, and later gilt-lettered date direct to spine in bottom compartment. Old marginal repairs to title page with loss of two letters, tear to lower corner of Y2 with loss of a few words, tears to Gggg and Aaaaa4 without loss, sporadic unobtrusive ink and water stains and occasional marginal pencillings, rear pastedown unglued, overall a clean and substantively complete copy with woodcut portraits to each life. Early inscription at inner margin of closing blank by Troylus Atkinson, Oxford inn-keeper turned bookseller, indicating his acquisition of the book on 2 August 1627 for 16s 8d; mid-19th century ownership label of Thomas Beale Cooper (doctor of medicine of Bengeworth, Evesham, Worcestershire), with lengthy ink inscription to opening blank about the book probably in Cooper's hand. The influence of Plutarch's lives on Shakespeare's Roman plays is well established and much studied and whilst scholarship suggests his use of the 1579 or 1595 editions, both Anthony and Cleopatra and Coriolanus both post-date this 1603 edition. Increasingly uncommon early example; ESTC S112873, citing 8xUK and 6xUS institutional locations.

Plutarch
London: Arnold Hatfield, 1603. Folio, early full calf, raised bands. [viii], 1363, [1 blank p.], [62] pp., engraved title-page headpiece. In a recent custom-made clamshell box, in half brown calf and brown cloth, with raised bands. First edition in English of Plutarch's Moralia. Although Plutarch is best known as a biographer, over half of his work consists of philosophical writings. In addition to his discussions of several classical schools, Plutarch writes on a wide variety of subjects, from marriage, the proper education of children, and how to tell a flatterer from a friend to the morality of meat-eating, the face of the moon, and the relative intelligences of land and sea animals. In this varied light, a more appropriate title might have been the one given to the first Latin translation ever printed: Apothegmata, originally from the Greek word "to speak out," was printed in Venice by Johannes Vindelinus de Spira in 1472. However, further translations into other languages took the title Moralia from the initial 14th century gathering of eleven of Plutarch's ethical writings into a single manuscript (Parisinus Graecus 1672). These translations were hugely influential: Goethe and Schilling both read Plutarch, and Montaigne's Essays draw much inspiration, both in form and content, from the Moralia. This first edition in English, translated out of the Greek by Philemon Holland and printed with his commentary in 1603, was very likely read by the likes of Shakespeare, Bacon, Dryden, and others. An unsophisticated copy. Although of uncertain date (to the present cataloger), t … [Click Below for Full Description]

BAYER, Johann (1572-1625)
Augsburg: C. Mangus, 1603. Folio. (14 1/8 x 10 inches). Engraved title, 3 preliminary text leaves, plus 51 double-page engraved celestial charts with text recto and verso. Printer's device on verso of final chart. Scattered early manuscript annotations. Expertly bound to style in early mottled calf, spine with raised bands in six compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt First edition of the first accurate star atlas. Earlier star catalogues followed Ptolemy's Almagest in using verbal descriptions to describe the location of stars within the 48 northern constellations of classical astronomy, an awkward system that occasioned constant errors and misapprehensions. Bayer, a lawyer and amateur astronomer, was the first to identify the location of stars within a constellation by the use of Greek letters (with the addition of the Latin alphabet for constellations with more than 24 stars). This simple innovation greatly facilitated the identification of stars with the naked eye, just five or six years before the invention of the telescope. Bayer's stellar nomenclature is still in use today. Bayer used Brahe's recent observations for the northern sky, and included, in chart 49, twelve new southern constellations observed by the Dutch navigator Pieter Dirckzoon Keyzer and reported by Pedro de Medina. To simplify identification of the stars Bayer included in his typographic descriptions both the traditional star numerations within each constellation and the many names for the constellations employed since Ptolemy. … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHAVIGNY (Jean de).
A Lyon, chez Pierre Rigaud, 1603. in-8. Titre gravé. 8ff. 639pp. 4ff. Plein veau, dos lisse orné (reliure vers 1800, coins émoussés avec petits manques, quelques défauts et traces d'épidermures). Edition Originale. Natif de Beaune, Jean de Chavigny (1536-1604) fut l'élève, le secrétaire et l'ami de Nostradamus. Ce sont ses notes, prises au cours de leurs conversations, qui servirent à éditer les fameuses "Centuries" du célèbre astrologue provençal. Après la mort de ce dernier en 1566, il publia quelques ouvrages comme celui-ci, fruits de ses propres travaux astrologiques et qui sont tous réputés d'une grande rareté. L'ouvrage fut réédité à deux reprises, en 1606 et 1607. La présente édition originale est notamment la seule à posséder un magnifique titre allégorique gravé, signé par le graveur Jacques de Fornazeris et représentant Henri IV . "Très proche par son métier et par son style de Thomas De Leu et de Léonard Gaultier, Jacques de Fornazeris a suscité peu d'études alors qu'il occupe une place non négligeable dans l'histoire de la gravure en France dans la dernière décennie du 16e siècle et au tout début du 17e" (Dictionnaire des graveurs-éditeurs et marchands d'estampes à Lyon aux XVIIe). Note manuscrite ancienne sur le contreplat supérieur: "Les ouvrages de ce visionnaire bien connu sont rares et fort recherchés". Marge supérieure rognée très court, coupant par endroits le titre courant et la pagination. Bon exemplaire par ailleurs. Caillet, I, 2305. Brunet, I, 1828. Cantamessa, Astrologia Ins and Outs, 1528.

Remigio CANTAGALLINA (Borgo San Sepolcro, 1582 circa; Florence, 1656).
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 u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lope de Vega y Carpio (Félix)
colophon: Pedro de Madrigal, 1603. title within woodcut architectural border, woodcut portrait of Lope on [.]7v, woodcut arms of Tellez Giron on f. 312v, cut a little close with some headlines just touched, water-staining in the first half and more particularly the first quarter (but not a disaster), a few fragments of blank corners torn away, and small hole in the first leaf of the Exposicion touching a couple of letters, ff. [8], 312 (various errors in signatures and pagination), [30], small 8vo, early 19th-century half English calf, rubbed, upper joint and top of spine repaired, early English provenance (see below), inscription of Aurelio M. Espinos (also see below) and his book label on front free endpaper, sound. Early (third or fourth) edition of Lope de Vega's extraordinarily successful pastoral novel (partly in verse), first published in 1598 and going through more than 40 editions within a century. All the early editions are rare: WorldCat records only the BL copy of this, though Profeti adds a few more, Arsenal, Wolfenbüttel, Hispanic Society, and Florence: not in the BNSpain. Verso of the title inscribed: 'John Winstanley liber [.] / ex dono Margaret ?Sotherno / 1641', John Winstanley's signature (the ascenders just cropped) on the page opposite. The inscription of A.M. Espinosa is dated 1908, noting it as a gift from T.S. Bell, which means this is Espinosa Senior, father of the noted folklorist Aurelio Macedonio Espinosa.

PARACELSUS (AUREOLI PHILIPPI THEOPHRASTI BOMBASTUS VON HOHENHEIM)
Straßburg; in Verlegung Lazari Zetzners Buchhändler, 1603. in 4° (33 x 21 cm. ca.); pp. (8), 691, (13); solida leg. in mezza pergamena con piatti marmorizzati; illustrato con 62 xilogr. e numerosi simboli e sigilli astrologici. Rara e non comune edizione sulla magia e l'alchimia del noto medico svizzero. Paracelso (1493 - 1541), alchimista, astrologo e medico, fu una delle figure più rappresentative del Rinascimento; si laureò all'Università di Ferrara. Personaggio controverso e controtendenza (dal suo nome Bombastus è derivato in inglese l'aggettivo bombastic, che indica una persona piena di sé ed arrogante). Fu il primo a raccomandare l'uso di sostanze minerali e di prodotti chimici per la cura delle malattie dell'uomo diversamente da quanto esposto nelle precedenti dottrine dove ci si limitava all'uso di piante ed estratti vegetali. La maggior parte delle opere fu dettata al suo pupillo prediletto, Johannes Oporinus, il quale si occupò di pubblicarle dopo la morte dell'autore

BOSSCHE, Willem vanden.
, . . 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.

Folio (225 x 353 mm). German manuscript on paper, splendidly illustrated. 440 leaves (including 119 blanks), complete (later pencil foliation 1-439, skipping a leaf after 188). 24 pages painted in full colour showing a continuous procession beneath panels of text, two of these pages with fold-out extensions pasted on, 64 illustrations of full-length masked and costumed figures identified by coats of arms and beneath text panels outlining the carnival of that year. Contemporary panelled pigskin stamped in blind with brass cornerpieces, remains of clasps. All edges red. Stored in a brown cloth box with leather lettering-piece. A splendid authorial copy of a 1603 chronicle of the city of Nuremberg, combined with pictorial presentation of its most celebrated public spectacle (a so-called "Schembartbuch") and precise records of the city's civic appointments and government. Commisioned by William Kress von Kressenstein, a member of one of Nuremberg's most renowned patrician families, the present manuscript is illustrated with a total of 88 elaborate, full-page watercolours by a skillfull and experienced artist, obviously trained in the Augsburg-Nuremberg area with such masters as Hans Schäufelein, Hans Sebald Beham, or Jörg Breu the Younger. Mentioning numerous members of the Kress family, the Chronicle (ff. 1-224 in our manuscript) reports notable events from the founding of the city in 1139 until 1603 and is especially remarkable for including an account of a 1592 parade of the municipal militia, not otherwise documented in such detail: 24 pages in full colour form a continous … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paola Zito, "Il Nuovo Mondo e la Vera Fede.

This letter is considered an example, on Bartoli's path, of "geography transferred on morality". [Attributes: First Edition]

Rettore del Collegio gesuitico di Macao, Carvalho (1559-1603), scrive la sua lettera annuale, relativa non solo a Macao ma anche a Nanchino e Shaozhou (Sciantuno): il documento si distingue per originalità rispetto agli altri rapporti consimili, descrivendo dettagliatamente, in particolare, un tifone che colpisce Macao, oltre al sistema di governo cinese e all'impatto della scienza occidentale sugli studiosi locali. "Although the format is a report on what were then the three centres of the mission in 1601, some twenty years after the opening of China proper, and so treated Macau, Nanjing, and Shaozhou, it contains in its 108 pages much "curious" as well as "edifying" information to use the illuminating distinction of the later French Jesuit collections" (v. Paul Rule, "The historiography of the Jesuits in China"). First edition. The principal of Jesuitic college in Macao, Carvalho (1559-1603) writes his annual letter, not only about Macao but also about Nanchin and Shaozou: the document stand out for its originality (also a typhoon is described, beyond the chinese government system and the local impact of European science)."Although the format is a report on what were then the three centres of the mission in 1601, some twenty years after the opening of China proper, and so treated Macau, Nanjing, and Shaozhou, it contains in its 108 pages much "curious" as well as "edifying" information to use the illuminating distinction of the later French … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALIGNANI, Alessandro
Zannetti, Roma, 1603. In -8°, pp. 102, cartonato, tagli rossi. Prima edizione. Valignani era un missionario gesuita, originario di Chieti, che ebbe un ruolo fondamentale nell'introduzione del cattolicesimo in Estremo Oriente. Mandato nelle Indie nel 1573, otto anni dopo la sua adesione alla Compagnia del Gesù, mise a punto un metodo di proselitismo definito "adattazionismo", e basato sull'attenzione a evitare conflitti con le religioni e le culture locali, in contrasto con le linee di condotta francescane e domenicane. V. arrivò in Giappone nel 1579, e vi rimase fino al 1581, predicando la necessità per i gesuiti di vivere in accordo alle classi di appartenenza rispecchiate nella gerarchia buddista giapponese, e questo per non entrare in contrasto con quella cultura. Il precetto sarebbe stato aspramente criticato non solo dagli ordini rivali ma anche dai gesuiti stessi. In questa lettera al padre provinciale Claudio Aquaviva si mette in evidenza come l'accentuarsi dei conflitti politici in Giappone potesse incoraggiare il successo del proselitismo cattolico. First edition. Valignani was a Jesuit missionary who had a fundamental role in introduction of Christianims in Far East, where he was sent in 1573, eight years after having joint the Society of Jesus. He developed a proselytism method based on avoiding clashes and conficts with local religions and cultures, in contrast with the Franciscan and Dominican behaviours. He arrived to Japan in 1578 and left the country in 1581, preaching the need to live in accord to local buddhist hierarchy, to avoid conflict with that cultur … [Click Below for Full Description]
