Moderne analytische Untersuchungen lassen jedoch auf eine mittelalterliche Entstehung schließen. - Der Verfasser Alfonso Paleotti (1531-1610) war Erzbischof von Bologna, die italienische Erstausgabe erschien 1606 unter dem Titel "Christi Crucifixi stigmata Sacrae Sindoni" in Venedig. Aus dem Italienischen übersetzt wurde es durch den Augsburger Benediktinermönch Karl Stengel (1581-1663), der auch zahlreiche eigene Schriften zur Kirchengeschichte verfaßte. - Einband etwas fleckig und gewölbt, das hintere Innengelenk gebrochen.

Gerardus Mercator fue un cartógrafo flamenco famoso por idear la llamada "Proyección de Mercator". Lo novedoso de dicha proyección era que las líneas de longitud eran paralelas, lo cual facilitaba la navegación por mar al poderse marcar las direcciones de las brújulas con líneas rectas. Fue uno de los primeros que en utilizar la palabra Atlas para designar a un conjunto de mapas, y estimuló a Abraham Ortelius a hacer el primer atlas moderno. Posteriormente Mercator comenzó a elaborar su propio atlas que consistía en una versión corregida de los mapas de Ptolomeo.Lamentablemente, Mercator falleció en 1594 sin haber terminado su atlas. Fue su hijo quien concluyó la obra publicando todos los mapas que habían preparado juntos.

        Delineatio Regiae Civitatis Candy [Ceylon / Taprobana / Sri Lanka]

      Uncommon early view of the city of Ceylon -now Sri Lanka-, shown from above, intricately engraved; it shows a fortification at the center of the city, flanked at East by a river, and giving an idea of the architecture of the town. Four men in local costumes, in civilian and war-like attires, also illustrate the image. The island was under Chinese control until 1505, when the Portuguese first made an attempt of colonization; in 1517 the colony became permanent until the arrival of the Dutch in the early years of the 17th century, led by Joris de Spilbergen; this view likely represents the city under Dutch rule. Following a period of unrest, the Dutch finally settled and ruled the island for almost two centuries. Published in De Bry's "Little Voyages", a collection of voyages to the East Indies.

Reichenbach pursued his interest in aconites and delphiniums with dogged determination: in March 1819 he published Uebersicht der Gattung Aconitum , which was followed by the present work, published in two parts in 1820 and 1821. He never published a second volume, but started a new work which combined his observations on the aconite with the delphinium. Very good copy of a monograph on the herb aconite with fine engravings and early lithographs.

Aristophanes c. 446 ? c. 386 BC, known as the Father of Comedy, was a comic playwright of ancient Athens. Eleven of his forty plays survive virtually complete. These, together with fragments of some of his other plays, provide the only real examples of a genre of comic drama known as Old Comedy, and are used to define it. Aristophanes has been said to recreate the life of ancient Athens more convincingly than any other author. His powers of ridicule were feared and acknowledged by influential contemporaries; Plato singled out Aristophanes' play The Clouds as slander that contributed to the trial and subsequent condemning to death of Socrates although other satirical playwrights had also caricatured the philosopher.

      Leiden, (Lugduni Batavorum), Apud Joannem Patium, Acad. Typogr., 1607. 8vo. 3 parts in 1: (XXIII),(1 blank),408; (12),411,(4),(1 blank); (159 unnumbered pages),(1 blank) p. Vellum 17.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 2,585; Schweiger 1,204; Dibdin 2,232; Graesse 4,453; Ebert 13450; Brunet 3,1552) (Details: Two thongs laced through the joints. Each part has its own title, the first is in red & black. Woodcut printer's mark of Paets on the titles, depicting a winged young woman who holds a scythe in her left hand and an opened book in her right arm) (Condition: Vellum age-toned and spotted. Tiny hole in the vellum of the lower board. Both pastedowns detached. Bookplate pasted on inside of the upper board. First title finger soiled. Almost invisible pinpoint wormhole at the tip of the right upper corner of ca. 250 p. Paper yellowing) (Note: The Greek Platonist Maximus Tyrus, ca. 125-185 AD, was an itinerant philosopher, who left us 41 dissertations (dalexeis) on theological, ethical and philosophical subjects. These lectures are not great literature, nor specimina of great learning. Philosophical originality is not be be looked for in these lectures.The author offers a pleasant prensentation of a theme, and his lectures 'are simply eloquent exhortations to virtue decked out in quotations, chiefly from Plato, and Homer'. (OCD 2nd ed. 658) The themes are for example: 'die Lust (hêdonê, 29-33), sokratische Liebe (18-22), platonische Theologie (11), 'daimones' (8-9), Gebet (5), Weissagung und freier Wille (13), das Böse (41) und Wiedererinnerung (10)'. (Neue Pauly, 7,1074/75) Maximus Tyrius was widely read by humanists like Ficino, Bessarion and Poliziano. The 'editio princeps' was published in 1557 by the French scholar/publisher Henricus Stephanus. The next important and authorative edition was published in 1607 by the Dutch scholar Daniel Heinsius, 1580-1655, who was in 1607 librarian of the University of Leiden. In 1609 he succeeded as professor of Greek his praeceptor Josephus Justus Scaliger. The first 300 pages of the first part of this book contain the Greek text of the 'Dissertationes', followed by a number of Pythagorean fragments, and by 27 pages 'castigationes' on Maximus Tyrius by Henricus Stephanus. The pages 329-386 contain the Greek text of Alcinous' handbook of Platonism 'Introductio in Platonicam philosophiam'; the pages 387-408 contain Diogenes Laertius on Plato. The second part contains Heinsius's Latin translation of Maximus Tyrius and Alcinous; added are 33 pages with a Latin translation of the earlier mentioned Pythagorean fragments, made by the Dutch scholar Willem Canter. At the end 27 pages filled with Apuleius's 'De Deo Socratis liber, qui Maximi Dissertat. de eodem respondet'. Part 3 contains the notes of Heinsius. Heinsius based his edition of Maximus Tyrius on that of Stephanus, but 'quae corrupta erant emendavimus, quae obscuriora, leviter illustravimus'. (Part 1, leaf *6 recto) But he was a conservative and reserved text critic, 'Nobis', he explains 'temeritas nunquam placuit, et si quid in autoribus peccandum est, timidus videri malo quam audax'. (Part 3, leaf a4 recto/verso) Heinsius also produced the Latin translation and notes. In a 'Lectori' to the third part Heinsius tells that the French scholar Isaac Casaubon sent him a manuscript of Maximus Tyrius's 'Dissertationes'. It arrived too late for amending the Greek text and Latin translation, but Heinsius used it for and in his notes. Heinsius received also some excerpts (excerpta quaedam) of Sixtus Arcerius, and the Heidelberg professor Marquard Freher, 1565-1614, sent him a manuscript from the Palatine Library) (Provenance: Armorial bookplate of the barony 'Sinclair', a shield divided into 4 fields, flanked by 2 griffons, a baron's coronet on top, above which a peer's helmet with mantlings, and a crest, consisting of a swam on its nest. Each of the four fields is filled with what seems a ship under sail. Old manuscript shelfmark on and under the bookplate. The motto reads: 'Fide sed pugna', 'with faith, but with fist') (Collation: *8, 2*4 (leaf 2*4 verso blank); a-u8, x4, y-cc8; pi2, b-dd8, cc4, a-k8) (Photographs on request)

        Novo teatro di machine et edificii

      Padua, 1607. FIRST EDITION. Engraved title and 42 full-page engravings. Contemporary vellum, remnants of ties, title in ink on spine; signature and date (eighteenth century) crossed out on title, initials and notation to front and back paste-downs, very minor spotting and browning, overall an excellent copy. First edition. This was the first of many works detailing and illustrating machinery (including those by Ramelli, Besson, Strada, etc.), all based upon the unpublished Trattado di architectura by Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439-1501). Indeed, according to Norman, even Leonardo da Vinci had owned and annotated a copy of Francesco's treatise. Zonca's images, copied by many later writers, include inventions for mills such as a water mill running silk-spinners and a water-powered grain mill operated on a boat moored in a river, copper plating and printing presses, a barbeque spit turned by gears and a windmill, as well as a perpetual motion machine. "The work is noted for containing the first printed illustration of a gig-mill for raising nap on cloth, and for spreading knowledge of the mangle" (Norman). Zonca (1568-1602) was an Italian mechanical engineer. His book on machines went through four editions, and some of the plates were even published in a 1627 Chinese work on European mechanical arts, Qiqi Tushuo by Johann Schreck and Wang Zheng.

With 18 numbered hand-coloured plates (6 engraved and 12 lithographed), and 1 uncoloured engraved plate. Modern blue cloth.

Reichenbach pursued his interest in aconites and delphiniums with dogged determination: in March 1819 he published Uebersicht der Gattung Aconitum, which was followed by the present work, published in two parts in 1820 and 1821. He never published a second volume, but started a new work which combined his observations on the aconite with the delphinium. Very good copy of a monograph on the herb aconite with fine engravings and early lithographs.

        Novo teatro di machine et edificii

      Padua, 1607. FIRST EDITION. Engraved title and 42 full-page engravings. Contemporary vellum, remnants of ties, title in ink on spine; signature and date (eighteenth century) crossed out on title, initials and notation to front and back paste-downs, very minor spotting and browning, overall an excellent copy. First edition. This was the first of many works detailing and illustrating machinery (including those by Ramelli, Besson, Strada, etc.), all based upon the unpublished Trattado di architectura by Francesco di Giorgio Martini (1439-1501). Indeed, according to Norman, even Leonardo da Vinci had owned and annotated a copy of Francesco's treatise. Zonca's images, copied by many later writers, include inventions for mills such as a water mill running silk-spinners and a water-powered grain mill operated on a boat moored in a river, copper plating and printing presses, a barbeque spit turned by gears and a windmill, as well as a perpetual motion machine. "The work is noted for containing the first printed illustration of a gig-mill for raising nap on cloth, and for spreading knowledge of the mangle" (Norman). Zonca (1568-1602) was an Italian mechanical engineer. His book on machines went through four editions, and some of the plates were even published in a 1627 Chinese work on European mechanical arts, Qiqi Tushuo by Johann Schreck and Wang Zheng.

        De beroemde onderneming op de rivieren van London en Rochester gedaan den 21, 22 en 23 Junii des jaars 1667 .Rotterdam, Dirk Langendijk, Mattheus de Sallieth, Dirk de Jong, 1782. Oblong 1mo (47 x 58 cm). A large and extremely detailed engraved and etched view of the Battle of the Medway (pictorial image 42 x 58 cm), showing the stern of The Royal Charles in great detail, the capsized Loyal London in flames and the Dutch in row boats in the foreground, including Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, commander of the Dutch fleet, and Cornelis de Witt, deputy of the States General and brother of the Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt. With engraved captions at the foot, on either side of the De Witt coat of arms.

      - Muller, Ned. Historieplaten, 2261a; for Langendijk and Sallieth: Scheen, pp. 303 & 449. Large etched and engraved print showing the sensational and humiliating defeat of the English by the Dutch at the Battle of the Medway at Chatham, near Rochester. Langendijk places the viewer in the midst of the action, so that one sees the ships, people and the hand-to-hand combat on the rowboats in the foreground in the greatest detail. It was the decisive event of the Second Anglo-Dutch War, forcing the British to agree to end the war with a settlement favourable to the Dutch a month later. It was also the crowning achievement of the great Dutch admiral Michiel de Ruyter (1607-1676). The daring raid was planned by the Dutch Grand Pensionary Johan de Witt and carried out under command of Admiral De Ruyter, accompanied by De Witt's brother Cornelis.Trimmed down to the edges of the image and text, but without loss and in good condition, with only some traces of former mildew slightly affecting the caption and the water at the foot of the image, and a few tiny holes or small marginal tears repaired. The margins have been extended with Japanese paper. The most detailed and spectacular view of the Battle of the Medway.

      Tournes Jean de, 1607. 3 parti in 1 volume in-4° (mm. 243x172), pagine (4), 847 (Vecchio Testamento); 178 (i Libri Apocrifi); 314 (Nuovo Testamento). Grande impresa tipografica xilografica al frontespizio, testo su due colonne, testatine, capilettera e finalini xilografici. Lussuosa legatura inglese settecentesca in marocchino rosso con larga bordura dorata ai piccoli ferri sui piatti, titolo in oro al centro del piatto anteriore, ricchi fregi in oro ai comparti del dorso a cinque nervi. Piccoli strappi a quattro carte alle note marginali, per il resto splendido esemplare. Alla carta di guardia ex libris Hale of Anderley, sotto altro ex libris Robert Blagden Hale, di cui è presente anche una nota di possesso, alla stessa carta con indicazione: ''R.H.B. Hale 1854 May 5''; altro ex libris Estelle Doheny al contropiatto anteriore. Prima edizione della Bibbia Protestante in italiano, tradotta dall'ebraico e dal greco, nonchè commentata da Giovanni Diodati (1576-1649), convertito lucchese nato a Ginevra, amico di Paolo Sarpi e di Milton, professore di Ebraico e di Teologia all'Accademia, attivo membro della comunità accademica ginevrina. La sua stesura era già pronta nel 1603, quando Diodati, non ancora ventottenne, la presentò alla Compagnia dei Pastori di Ginevra. Questa traduzione fu di estrema importanza per le popolazioni di culto Valdese delle valli piemontesi, ed è alquanto rara, anche perché fu duramente avversata nei secoli dai cattolici. Esemplare di illustre provenienza: fu prima nella collezione Hale e poi venne acquisito da Estelle Doheny (1875-1958), ricordata per essere stata fra le prime grandi collezioniste donne di libri antichi negli Stati Uniti. Bibbia a stampa, n.116: ''L'apparato di note, poste in margine e in calce, mescolate ai riferimenti biblici, segnala spesso soluzioni alternative [..] Nell'esemplare esposto non figura né l'editore né la città''.

      Lyon, Pierre Rigaud, 1607. ____ C'est un recueil de sept prophéties - comme les sept étoiles des pléïades - publié pour la première fois en 1603. Elles sont commentées en rapport aux événements du XVIe siècle et comparées à celles de Nostradamus. Jean Aimé de Chavigny, (Beaune, 1524-1604) docteur en droit et en théologie, disciple de Nostradamus, a été son plus ancien commentateur. Le "discours parenetique" dont il est fait mention sur le titre a été publié séparément, avec sa propre page de titre et pagination. De ce fait, il "ne se trouve pas dans tous les exemplaires" comme l'indique Brunet, ce qui est le cas de celui-ci et de celui de la BNF. Provenance : "Ex-libris Lebers, membre de la Société de l'histoire de Normandie." (note à la plume du XIXe). Benazra, Répertoire chronologique nostradamique pp. 168. Brunet 1, 1828. Très bel exemplaire. ***** It is a collection of seven prophecies - as the seven stars of the Pleiades - published for the first time in 1603. They are discussed in relation to the events of the sixteenth century and compared with Nostradamus' prophecies. Jean Aimé Chavigny, (Beaune, 1524-1604) Doctor of Law and Theology, a disciple of Nostradamus, was his oldest commentator. The discourse "parenetique" which is mentioned on the title was published separately, with its own title page and pagination. Therefore, it "is not in all copies" as Brunet says, which is the case of this copy and the one in Bibliotheque Nationale de France.

        Les tragedies de Robert Garnier

      New collective edition, rare, eight pieces of the author, after the first full collective in 1585. italicized print.Bound in full brown sheepskin contemporary. Back with nerves decorated. part of title in red morocco. Coins and caps skilfully restored by a professional. Foxing. yellowed paper.Garnier (1545-1590) is undoubtedly the first great French tragedian. Most of his subjects are drawn from ancient times, but its last two pieces are firstly a Christian tragedy and the other a tragedy inspired by Ariosto. Friend of the poets of the Pleiades celebrating openly (contain the tragedies in the preliminary parts of poems Ronsart and Belleau, Baïf or even poems signed three), it was less appreciated by the court. His sense of tragedy is inherited from Seneca and Euripides where the tragic sense depends less on action than the sovereign word. Par Jean Fuzy A Paris 1607 In-12 648pp. relié

Accurata edizione, la più completa, di quattro famosi trattati di falconeria (editi a partire dalla prima metà del XVI secolo): l'opera di Franchières, noto anche come Francières, erudito cavaliere di Rodi attivo alla corte di Luigi XI, alla quale sono aggiunti i testi di Tardif, Artelouche e Bouchet sulla medesima materia. - II) Du Fouilloux, ff. (4), 124, (9), titolo in rosso e nero e con grande figura di caccia col falco; con 71 figure n.t., di cani di varia razza e quadrupedi da cacciare (cinghiale, lepre, volpe, tasso, cervo); numerose iniziali istoriate e ornate. Pregevole edizione del più famoso antico trattato di caccia a correre, scritto sotto il regno di Carlo IX ed edito per la prima volta nel 1561 a Poitiers, la prima traduzione italiana risale invece al 1615. Si tratta parimenti del più autorevole trattato antico sui cani, loro razze, malattie e rimedi: ''L'opera consta di LXIII capitoli seguiti da una serie di Ricette per risanare i cani di più sorte d'infermità'' (Ceresoli, p. 224). Esemplare assai bello di opere classiche di falconeria, stupendamente illustrate, che ebbero alcune ristampe nel XVI e XVII sec. Di notevole rarità. (Ex-libris John Wayland Leslie).
