        Joannis Metropolitani Euchaitensis versus iambici in principalium festorum pictas in tabulis historias atq[ue] alia varia compositi.

      In Collegio Regali, excudebat [M. Bradwood for] Ioannes Norton, in Gr[a]ecis, &c. regius typographus, 1610. One of the first two books printed at Eton, both in Greek and both printed in 1610. The Byzantine poetry here is from the pen of John, Mauropus, an 11th-century teacher, hymnographer, orator, Byzantine Greek poet, and correspondent of scholars. This, the editio princeps, was edited by and has the notes of Matthew Bust (1543 or 1544-1613), Fellow of Eton College and father of his namesake who was Master of Eton (1611-30). The prefatory matter and notes are printed in Latin in italics and the main text is in a large greek face; the actual printer's name is from STC. Searches of STC, WorldCat, and ESTC locate many copies in Britain and even Europe, but only five in U.S. libraries. Provenance: 18th-century ownership inscription at top of title-page: "Petri Bonifantii." Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia). => An amazing early English schoolbook!

        Illustrated manuscript on paper, one blank leaf, 173 leaves, each with a full-page richly colored trade mark, in many hues including silver, of the iron mills active in the Sankt Gallen area of Upper Styria in Austria. Small 4to (190 x 145 mm.), cont. blind-stamped panelled vellum (a little worn & defective), orig. clasps & catches

      - [Styria; ca. 1610-20]. An important document for the early history of iron ore mining, refining, and trading in the Erzberg region of Styria, the most important ore mining area of Central Europe. These activities have continued from Roman times and were especially important in the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. This illustrated manuscript is a directory of the devices of all the iron mills likely active in the Sankt Gallen area in the early 17th century. These devices comprise a maker's mark - usually a geometrically shaped symbol but sometimes in the shape of an object such as an imperial orb, a cluster of grapes, a fish, or a mineworker - placed over a large figuratively and ornamentally designed cartouche in a variety of forms containing the name of the mill, i. e. of its current owner. Among these owners there are a number of women. Each of these devices is richly colored; the coloring is fine and fresh. Thanks to the names entered in the directory, its provenance and date may be exactly determined, as almost every entry can be assigned to a known iron mill proprietor in the Sankt Gallen area. The Pantz family is represented by Abraham, Christoph and Sebastian, active on the Pölzenbach stream near Sankt Gallen and at Weissenbach on the river Enns; we know that Sebastian died in 1613. The Schweinzer family, who also owned an iron mill at Weissenbach, likewise has three entries: Adam, Blasius (his symbol a fish) and Elias, the latter two being recorded as iron mill owners in 1604 and 1617 respectively. Wolf Scheichenfelder II was active at Sankt Gallen between 1587 and 1625 and Georg Thalhammer (mentioned in 1609) milled at Oberhof near Sankt Gallen. Other names prominent in the mining industry of northern Styria ca. 1600 include Händl, Haydn (Franz, his symbol a crossbow), Kohlthaler, Schrapacher, Stubmer (Matthias, his symbol a clover leaf), Winterl, and Würschenhofer. The miniatures include two floral wreaths (leaves 45 and 111), perhaps intended to contain half-titles, possibly with retrospective dates. It seems that the initial blank leaf (unnumbered, but of the same paper as the rest of the manuscript, so not a flyleaf) was intended to be supplied with a title on completion of the manuscript. However, this never happened, as the directory was used only at the time when it was written and then seems to have been forgotten about - which would explain the manuscript's fine and fresh condition. The cartouches are supplied with names only on the first 32 leaves (a few are left blank here, the entry on leaf 32 is only rudimentary). The final leaf provides an overview of colour variants, giving simple maker's marks as examples. The watermark (a curved escutcheon filled with a number of unidentifiable figures) is not in Piccard. Fine condition. Inner hinges strengthened, a few old and minor repairs to a few leaves, some light soiling and browning to edges at beginning, otherwise only some occasional foxing. ?

Das erstmals 1593 (1603 erstmals illustriert) erschienene Werk des Cesare Ripa (1555-1622) gilt als eines der bedeutensten Emblembücher des 17. Jahrhunderts mit großem Einfluss auf die Bildende Kunst und Literatur. Aufbauend auf Studien antiker Bild- und Schriftquellen, auch der Bibel, gab Ripa abstrakten Begriffen, Künsten und Wissenschaften, Tugenden und Lastern, Affekten und Leidenschaften ein Bild. Aus heutiger Sicht ist das Werk Ripas bedeutsam für die Entschlüsselung barocker allegorischer Darstellungen. Das Buch war, gemäß einem in der Renaissance üblichen Verfahren, nicht systematisch, sondern alphabetisch angeordnet. Jedem Begriff entspricht in dem Buch ein Bild mit einer Beschreibung der allegorischen Figur oder Personifikation. Die Holzschnitte hier mit verschiedenen Renaissance-Zierleisten geschmückt. - DIESES OBJEKT UNTERLIEGT DER DIFFERENZBESTEUERUNG.

        Cartas Morales y Consolatorias. Traduzidas en lengua Castellana por Madama Francisca de Passier. De nuevo corregidas y anadidas de siete Cartas, traduzidas por Cesar Oudin, Secretario Interprete de su Magestad Christianissima.

      Paris, Anthoine du Breuil, 1610. - in-8. 4ff. 152ff. 7ff. Demi veau, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque). Seconde édition espagnole, la première complète, des Lettres de Nerveze. En 1605 était parue à Thonon-les-Bains (Savoie) la première traduction en espagnol des "Epitres Morales" du poète français Antoine de Nerveze (1570-1624), secrétaire du roi Henri IV. La traductrice était une femme connue pour ses talents, Françoise de Passier. Cette femme cultivée disparut prématurément sans avoir pu terminer la traduction et par conséquent cette première édition de Thonon-les-Bains ne contenait pas la totalité du texte original. Aujourd'hui d'une extrême rareté, il s'agit de l'un des premiers livres imprimés dans cette petite ville de Savoie. Peu après la mort de sa traductrice, Nerveze prit l'initiative d'éditer à nouveau son livre en espagnol et il confia la réalisation de la présente édition, ainsi que la traduction du fragment manquant, au traducteur d'espagnol du roi Henri IV César Oudin, qui devint peu après le premier traducteur de Don Quichotte en français. Dans la préface rédigée pour cette seconde édition, adressée à "Don Diego Pimentel, Conde de Gelves, del Consejo Supremo de Guerra de su Magestad Catholica y su Castellano del Castillo de Milan", Oudin expose les circonstances de sa mise en chantier: "despues de la muerte de ladicha Dama no quiso el susodicho de Narveza que quedase la obra imperfecta y por esta causa aviendo el cobrado un ejemplar de la impresion de Tonon comunicomelo para que cotejando la traduccion Espanola con el original Francés yo mirase si acaso o por descuido los impressores huvieran dexado passar algunas faltas y asi lo repassé con la mayor diligencia y cuydado que pude, segun mis ordinarias ocupaciones me dieron lugar a ello, tambien acabé de traduzir las Cinco Cartas que quedavan del libro, juntamente con otras dos que anadio el Autor". Oudin évoque également dans ce texte liminaire "Madama de Passier, Dama en verdad digna de mucha gloria y alabanza por su raro ingenio y levantado espiritu y por aver sido dotada de tantas y tan excelentes virtudes, como claramente se conoce en esta traduccion que ella hizo de Frances en Espanol de las Cartas Morales y Consolatorias del Senor Narveza". Texte bilingue, espagnol et français, sur deux colonnes. Bel exemplaire dans une fine reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque. Aucun exemplaire dans les bibliothèques américaines (cf. NUC).

        Antwerpen panorama - Jan Bapitst Vrients.

      MAGISTRAAL GEZICHT OP DE REDE VAN ANTWERPEN?Antverpia??, kopergravure in vier bladen voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1610 door Jan Bapitst Vrients, hier in een uitgave van na 1652. Deels in de tijd, deels later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: (prent) ca. 43 x 219 cm, (lijst) 80 x 255 cm.De rede van Antwerpen heeft een fascinerende aantrekkingskracht uitgeoefend op kunstenaars: geen enkele havenstad in de 16e en 17e eeuw heeft zo vaak haar rede of delen van die rede weergegeven gezien op schilderijen en prenten. Enkele grafische kunstenaars hebben het gewaagd in monumentale gezichten een overzichtsbeeld te geven van het ganse toenmalige havencomplex. De drie voornaamste pogingen werden stuk voor stuk meesterwerken in het genre: de anonieme houtsnede van 1515, de gravure van Frans Huys van 1556, en het redegezicht van 1610 door Jan Bapitist Vrients.Opdrachtgevers voor het vervaardigen van dit stadsgezicht waren de aartshertogen Albrecht en Isabella die over de Habsburgse Nederlanden regeerden van 1598 tot 1621.In 1609 kwam men in Antwerpen tot een akkoord over een wapenstilstand, waarop het Twaalfjarig Bestand volgde en de erkenning van de Verenigde Provinci?n als soevereine macht. Met de be?indiging van de vijandelijkheden en het daaruit voortvloeiende herstel van de landbouw, nam de welvaart bij de terugkerende bevolking toe. De protestanten die eerder de zuidelijke Nederlanden hadden verlaten, werden onder nieuwe wetgeving nu gedoogd. Deze gebeurtenissen bij elkaar waren aanleiding voor een stemming van overwinning en lof, uitgebeeld in dit panorama.De gravure van Vrients toont boven het stadsbeeld allegorische voorstellingen in de toen doorbrekende barok-stijl. Van links naar rechts: het wapenschild van Brabant; een bazuin blazende Faun, de Overvloed, de Macht geflankeerd door de Zege en Gerechtigheid; de Stad Antwerpen met Mercurius en vreemdelingen die schatten brengen; het wapenschild van het markgraafschap Antwerpen. Links bovenaan een cartouche met een 18-regelig Latijns lofdicht op Antwerpen onder de titel ?De magnificentia urbis Antverpianae??; het cartouche rechts kent wederom een lofdicht in het Nederlands en Frans:?De Lotharinger Vorst, de eerste Hendrik bou[w]de Nu al voor soo veel eeuwen mijn wallen aan de Schelde Doch wat is ?t dat men stoft op daden van den ouden Als een verdiende lof u dapperheyd niet melt Sie vremdeling, mijn schat mijn huijsen, toorens, kereken, Mijn wallen en het Slot daer uijt ik word bewaakt Gae heen en segh dan vrij die duijsen wonder werken Heeft burger van mijn stadt in voorsped self gemaakt.??Jan Bapitist Vrients (1552-1612) specialiseerde zich in de uitgave van kaarten. Na de dood van Abraham Ortelius (in 1598) en Gerard de Jode (in 1591) was hij de enige belangrijke Antwerpse uitgever die de cartografische traditie uit Antwerpen?s Gouden Eeuw voortzette, zij het ten dele met materiaal van zijn voorgangers: hij kon onder meer van Ortelius? zuster de koperplaten van de fameuze kaartenmaker kopen en daarmee het Theatrum Orbis Terrarum van Ortelius herhaalde malen heruitgeven.Het redegezicht van 1610 is dan ook uitzonderlijk in het oeuvre van Vrients. Niet bekend is of hij persoonlijk de prent gegraveerd heeft, of dat hij enkel als uitgever van het werk heeft gefungeerd. Sommige bronnen suggereren dat de plaat is gemaakt door Hans Rem die in 1606 ook een groot aangezicht van Amsterdam maakte.Vrients overleed in 1612. Zijn materiaal werd publiekelijk geveild in april van dat jaar. De koperplaten van Ortelius werden gekocht door Balthasar en Jan Moretus, maar andere liefhebbers waren eveens komen opdagen. De koperplaten van het redegezicht moeten de weg naar het Noorden hebben gevonden. Op bepaalde afdrukken komt de naam van plaatsnijder Johannes Loots (1630) uit Amsterdam voor, ook zijn er exemplaren bekend met de naam van Claes Jansz Visscher (1652).Dit exemplaar zonder naam van een uitgever moet na 1652 zijn verschenen.Literatuur: zie Holstein XLIX, 61; Delen ?Iconographie van Antwerpen?? 613Prijs: ?16.500,-.

        DESCRIÇÃO DO REINO DE PORTVGAL.

      - Por Duarte Nunez do Leão, desembargador da casa da suplicação. Dirigida ao illustrissimo & muito excelente sñor Dom Diogo da Sylva, Duque de Francauilla, Conde de Salinas & Riuadeo, Presidente do conselho da coroa de Portugal. [Vinheta xilografada com o escudo das armas reais de Portugal]. EM LISBOA. Impresso com licença, por Iorge Rodriguez. ANNO. 1610. In 8º (de 18,5x13,5 cm) com [12], 161 [i. é 162] fólios. Encadernação da época em pergaminho flexível com título manuscrito na lombada, preservando atilhos. Cortes das folhas carminados. No interior da guarda anterior encontra-se palimpsesto impresso. Bela impressão sobre papel de linho muito alvo e espesso, adornada com capitulares xilográficas decorativas ao longo do texto. A folha de rosto é ilustrada com uma tarja tipográfica emoldurando o texto, ao centro encontra-se gravado um brasão com as armas reais de Portugal.O último fólio preliminar não numerado apresenta ao centro um medalhão emblemático oval, decorado com uma palmeira e o sol nascente, no campo exterior o mote: "Omnia Omnibus". Espécime bibliográfico de grande raridade. Exemplar com um ex-libris do século XIX, "W. E. Frere". Apresenta grande sonoridade do papel. A folha de rosto e o último fólio encontram-se espelhados nas margens do verso com uma pequena tira de papel. É de notar o facto deste exemplar apresentar uma correcção manuscrita no título da folha de rosto (na palavra Descrição » Descripção) executada pela mesma mão do exemplar da BNP, logo indicando que os exemplares foram possivelmente todos corrigidos nesta inovação ortográfica adoptada por Duarte Nunes de Leão, porém ainda não consensual na sua época. Segundo o sobrinho do autor, Gil Nunez do Leão, que submeteu ao Rei a petição para autorizar a publicação da obra, não foi efectuada qualquer alteração ao texto original, ainda que nos últimos anos da sua vida o autor tenha pretendido fazê-lo, o que não aconteceu devido à sua doença. Diz Gil Nunez do Leão no prólogo ao leitor: ?Este livro acabou o Doutor meu tio de compor nos termos que que está no ano de 1599, estando neste tempo recolhido na vila de Alverca por causa do mal que nos Deus livre que então houve neste reino? Importantissimo subsídio para a historiografia portuguesa, actualmente lida e estudada em teses disponíveis. Aqui, o autor transmite um conjunto alargado de conhecimentos de várias àreas do saber ? Direito, Geografia, Sociologia, Economia, História - e a obra aparece-nos redonda e completa sem que pareçam faltar mais capítulos. O autor começa com a explicação sobre o direito administrativo romano, as divisões e mudanças dos termos e limites dos círculos judiciais e o que se acrescentou posteriormente, quando Portugal se tornou um país soberano. Segue-se a descrição geográfica das cidades, vilas e rios da Lusitânia. A partir da página 18, o autor apresenta a teoria do direito romano que organiza os ?Jurídicos Conventos?, os municípios de Direito do Lácio, os municípios de Direito Itálico, o conceito complexo de Colónia Romana, as várias maneiras em que havia as mesmas colónias e a presença de importantes colónias romanas em Portugal (como por exemplo Beja) das quais o autor comprova a existência através de vestígios epigráficos e arqueológicos. Apresenta-se a partir do fólio 23 a descrição das serras e montanhas de Portugal, particularizando a Serra de Sintra com toda a sua mitologia ligada aos cultos do Sol e da Lua. Os rios Tejo, Guadiana, Mondego, Zêzere, Lima, Vouga e Douro apresentam descrições individuais e desenvolvidas com os seus afluentes e os locais dos seus cursos. No fólio 40 são mencionadas as riquezas naturais e as produções em Portugal. Descrimina por região as minas de ouro, prata, jaspe, turquesas e pirites, mas também as pedreiras e em particular as que exportam as pedras das mós dos moinhos para as Índias Ocidentais e Orientais e até mesmo o barro que é exportado pelo bom sabor e cheiro que confere à água armazenada nos potes. Também o sal, o azeite e o vinho são

        Of the cities of God

      George Eld, London 1610 - Woodcut device on title. Contemporary calf rebacked with original backstrip laid down, both covers stamped with central gilt decoration; first two leaves repaired on edges, minor browning to fore-edges, otherwise a very nice copy with the ownership signature on title of Dan Baker dated 1822 as well as inscription that the book was "purchased from Dan Baker by J.M. Moore" dated 1824. First edition in English, translated by John Healey from the Latin version edited by Juan Luis Vives (1492-1540), the famed Spanish scholar who was encouraged by his friend Erasmus to work on Augustine's (354-430) great treatise. Vives's De causis has been compared to Bacon's Organon. Healey (d. ca. 1609) was unable to correct the printing of his translation before his death as the dedication to the Earl of Pembroke by Thomas Thorpe (printer of Shakespeare's Sonnets) implies. Thus Healey's translation remained the sole English version until Dr. Dods's translation of 1871, and is one of the most enduring examples of Elizabethan prose. De civitate Dei influenced world history from the middle ages to the end of the eighteenth century, and its power is still present, for example, in international law.

        LA NAISSANCE MIRACULEUSE DE LA CHAPELLE DE BETHLEEM EN FRANCE, fondée en l'Abbaye Royale de Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul de Ferrieres en Gâtinais, au diocèse de Sens

      A Paris, Chez Gilles Blaisot, Imprimeur 1610 - LA NAISSANCE MIRACULEUSE DE LA CHAPELLE DE BETHLEEM EN FRANCE, fondée en l'Abbaye Royale de Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul de Ferrieres en Gâtinais, au diocèse de Sens. Avec plusieurs Chartes des premiers Rois etc. Le tout recherché par Dom Guill. Morin, parisien religieux de ladite Abbaye. Dédiée à la Reine. A Paris, Chez Gilles Blaisot, Imprimeur, 1610 1 volume in-12 (152 x 92 mm) de 2 pages de titre, 3 feuillets non chiffrés (épître à la Reine datée du 1er jour de Janvier 1610 et des vers (stances) à l'honneur du Bethleem des Français), 169-(3) pages. Reliure de l'époque plein parchemin souple. Manque de parchemin en pied. Solide reliure. Traces d'anciennes mouillures sans gravité et peu visibles. Un coin de page découpé (pp. 35/36) sans atteinte au texte. Complet. Une belle vignette gravée sur bois dans un encadrement occupe le verso du titre daté 1610. L'autre titre, placé devant, est identique à l'autre mais porte la date de 1613. ÉDITION ORIGINALE RARE. Ferrières était le siège d’une célèbre abbaye bénédictine, fondée peut-être par Clovis. Son existence est attestée dès le début du VIIe siècle, elle aurait alors été fondée par des disciples de saint Colomban. Dans le Dictionnaire des abbayes et monastères publié en 1856 par l'abbé Migne, elle est décrite comme ayant été fondée en 630 par le duc Wandelbert sous le nom de Bethleem Ferrariæ qui signifie Bethléem de Ferrières. Selon la tradition, le premier sanctuaire édifié en ce lieu commémorait la vision miraculeuse des saints évangélistes Savinien et Potentien qui, la nuit de Noël, ont vu en songe la crèche de Bethléem. Dom Morin, Grand Prieur de Ferrières (depuis 1610) et auteur de cet ouvrage, cite un certain nombre de miracles, qui tendent à prouver que les pèlerins ne sont pas toujours déçus : Les témoins interrogés, touchant les miracles opérés par la miséricordieuse puissance de Notre-Dame de Bethléem, racontèrent qu'ils en avaient vu plusieurs, et qu'ils étaient même si fréquents que les gens ne sortaient plus de leur maison pour constater ces faits. [ ] Jean Moschefol assura pareillement que sa femme ayant mis au monde un enfant mort, le voua à Notre-Dame de Bethléem. Puis, l'ayant porté sur l'autel de la chapelle, se mit à prier et à conjurer la Vierge Marie de ressusciter son enfant. Or, une demi-heure s'était à peine écoulée qu'on s'aperçut que cet enfant vivait. Aussitôt on le baptisa et il vécut plus de dix ans. Mais les miracles recensés ne concernent pas que des enfants : L'an 1411, Pierre du Cymetière chargé par le roi Charles VI, de faire exécuter un arrêt du conseil privé par les habitants d'Orléans, fut saisi par ceux-ci et jeté dans la prison de la Tour-Neuve. Espérant peu du côté des hommes, et se souvenant des éclatants miracles qu'on disait opérés à Ferrières, il fit vœu en l'honneur de Notre-Dame de Bethléem. Or, à peine eut-il formulé son serment, que, soudain, une muraille s'ouvre devant lui, et le prisonnier s'évade au grand étonnement des Orléanais qui regardaient le fait comme impossible. Morin a agrandi l'église en ajoutant les deux chapelles latérales. A sa mort, le 21 mai 1628, les moines ont déposé son corps dans cette chapelle qu'il avait fait édifier. Sur sa pierre tombale, il est représenté vêtu de la coule, large robe que les moines revêtent pour les offices. En haut, dans chaque angle, se trouvent les armes de sa famille. Notre exemplaire a cette particularité de posséder les deux pages de titre, celle de l'édition originale de 1610 et celle de remise en vente de 1613, chez le même libraire. Il y a sur la page de titre datée 1613 un ex dono manuscrit de l'auteur (ex dono aucthoris) et un ex libris d'un frère de la Congrégation de St Maur à l'abbaye de Fleury située à Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire (Loiret). Il s'agit très probablement du premier possesseur de ce volume à qui l'auteur en aura fait don entre 1613 et son décès en 1628.

        Newe geometrische und perspectivische Inventiones etlicher sonderbahrer Instrument ?

      Frankfurt am Main, Wolffgang Richter and Anthonius Humm, 1610 - 4to (193 x 148 mm), pp 38 [2, blank], with engraved title, half-page engraved arms on dedication, and three engravings, lettered A-C in the text (first two being half-page and the third full-page), and 3 folding engraved plates; some slight waterstaining to pp 19-33, small repaired tear to one plate, a very good copy in quarter tan calf and pasteboards, title in gilt on spine, red sprinkled edges.First edition, containing the first published illustrations of Galileo's proportional compass, of this illustrated treatise on instrument making by the Ulm mathematician and military architect Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635). This work is principally important in the history of science and technology for its engraved technical illustrations of Galileo Galilei's famous 'proportional compass' - the first such illustrations to appear in print - and for its revealing anecdote about of how Faulhaber came to learn of the instrument and of its inventor, 'Gallileus de Gallilei Professor zu Padua'. This device - more accurately described as 'Galileo's Sector' to distinguish it from the various 'compasses' which appeared in the late sixteenth century - has been called the forerunner of the pocket computer, and so revolutionary was its utility that it 'suddenly made it possible for nearly everyone to deal effectively with almost any [mathematical] problem arising in practical matters by following rather simple instructions' (Drake, p 10). Galileo invented his remarkably useful instrument around 1596, calling it the geometrical and military compass. The device bears nine sets of lines or scales for calculating square and cube roots, determining interest rates, making monetary exchanges, squaring the circle, performing trigonometric calculations for surveying, and determining specific weights of metals and stones (essential for artillery). Galileo first described this instrument in 1606 in a privately printed user's guide La Operazione del Compasso. (printed in only 60 copies in his house) to accompany the instrument but without illustrating it so as to minimize the risk of piracy, a serious and chronic problem for him at the time. In the present work, Faulhaber explicitly credits Galileo with being the instrument's first inventor ('and not I'), and illustrates the two sides of the proportional compass for the first time in print, on separate folding plates, with his calibrations stressing its mercantile qualities with adjustments for the measuring standards of Ulm. He includes a summary of the instrument's wider uses and marvels at its flexibility, noting that his good friend, the excellent painter Georg Brentel of Lauingen (1581-1634) has already devised a way to use it for recalibrating sundials (Brentel would publish on Galileo's invention in 1614).The Galileo scholar Stillman Drake tells us that Faulhaber's text relates (p 27) 'that his acquaintance with [the instrument] dated from a visit paid to him (probably in 1603) by Mathias Bernegger en route from Austria to Strassburg. Faulhaber had recognized the value of the instrument, although he considered some of its scales less useful than others that he put in their places. He said further that before publishing he had made careful inquiries to determine the name of the original inventor and had learned that this was Galileo Galilei, professor of mathematics at Padua. Because Bernegger seems never to have visited Italy, it is probable that he had seen the silver example of the instrument sent by Galileo to the Archduke of Austria and in that way knew of its inventor. Faulhaber's inquiries were probably made because of other claimants who appeared in the meanwhile' (Drake, p 26), professing to be the author and/or maker of Galileo's remarkable device. In two further sections of the present volume, Faulhaber discusses his improvements to several (non-Galilean) instruments used in the accurate construction of pictorial perspective and presents a secret invention (newe geheime Invention) for land sur

        Antwerpen panorama - Jan Bapitst Vrients.

      MAGISTRAAL GEZICHT OP DE REDE VAN ANTWERPEN?Antverpia??, kopergravure in vier bladen voor het eerst uitgegeven in 1610 door Jan Bapitst Vrients, hier in een uitgave van na 1652. Deels in de tijd, deels later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: (prent) ca. 43 x 219 cm, (lijst) 80 x 255 cm.De rede van Antwerpen heeft een fascinerende aantrekkingskracht uitgeoefend op kunstenaars: geen enkele havenstad in de 16e en 17e eeuw heeft zo vaak haar rede of delen van die rede weergegeven gezien op schilderijen en prenten. Enkele grafische kunstenaars hebben het gewaagd in monumentale gezichten een overzichtsbeeld te geven van het ganse toenmalige havencomplex. De drie voornaamste pogingen werden stuk voor stuk meesterwerken in het genre: de anonieme houtsnede van 1515, de gravure van Frans Huys van 1556, en het redegezicht van 1610 door Jan Bapitist Vrients.Opdrachtgevers voor het vervaardigen van dit stadsgezicht waren de aartshertogen Albrecht en Isabella die over de Habsburgse Nederlanden regeerden van 1598 tot 1621.In 1609 kwam men in Antwerpen tot een akkoord over een wapenstilstand, waarop het Twaalfjarig Bestand volgde en de erkenning van de Verenigde Provinci?n als soevereine macht. Met de be?indiging van de vijandelijkheden en het daaruit voortvloeiende herstel van de landbouw, nam de welvaart bij de terugkerende bevolking toe. De protestanten die eerder de zuidelijke Nederlanden hadden verlaten, werden onder nieuwe wetgeving nu gedoogd. Deze gebeurtenissen bij elkaar waren aanleiding voor een stemming van overwinning en lof, uitgebeeld in dit panorama.De gravure van Vrients toont boven het stadsbeeld allegorische voorstellingen in de toen doorbrekende barok-stijl. Van links naar rechts: het wapenschild van Brabant; een bazuin blazende Faun, de Overvloed, de Macht geflankeerd door de Zege en Gerechtigheid; de Stad Antwerpen met Mercurius en vreemdelingen die schatten brengen; het wapenschild van het markgraafschap Antwerpen. Links bovenaan een cartouche met een 18-regelig Latijns lofdicht op Antwerpen onder de titel ?De magnificentia urbis Antverpianae??; het cartouche rechts kent wederom een lofdicht in het Nederlands en Frans:?De Lotharinger Vorst, de eerste Hendrik bou[w]de Nu al voor soo veel eeuwen mijn wallen aan de Schelde Doch wat is ?t dat men stoft op daden van den ouden Als een verdiende lof u dapperheyd niet melt Sie vremdeling, mijn schat mijn huijsen, toorens, kereken, Mijn wallen en het Slot daer uijt ik word bewaakt Gae heen en segh dan vrij die duijsen wonder werken Heeft burger van mijn stadt in voorsped self gemaakt.??Jan Bapitist Vrients (1552-1612) specialiseerde zich in de uitgave van kaarten. Na de dood van Abraham Ortelius (in 1598) en Gerard de Jode (in 1591) was hij de enige belangrijke Antwerpse uitgever die de cartografische traditie uit Antwerpen?s Gouden Eeuw voortzette, zij het ten dele met materiaal van zijn voorgangers: hij kon onder meer van Ortelius? zuster de koperplaten van de fameuze kaartenmaker kopen en daarmee het Theatrum Orbis Terrarum van Ortelius herhaalde malen heruitgeven.Het redegezicht van 1610 is dan ook uitzonderlijk in het oeuvre van Vrients. Niet bekend is of hij persoonlijk de prent gegraveerd heeft, of dat hij enkel als uitgever van het werk heeft gefungeerd. Sommige bronnen suggereren dat de plaat is gemaakt door Hans Rem die in 1606 ook een groot aangezicht van Amsterdam maakte.Vrients overleed in 1612. Zijn materiaal werd publiekelijk geveild in april van dat jaar. De koperplaten van Ortelius werden gekocht door Balthasar en Jan Moretus, maar andere liefhebbers waren eveens komen opdagen. De koperplaten van het redegezicht moeten de weg naar het Noorden hebben gevonden. Op bepaalde afdrukken komt de naam van plaatsnijder Johannes Loots (1630) uit Amsterdam voor, ook zijn er exemplaren bekend met de naam van Claes Jansz Visscher (1652).Dit exemplaar zonder naam van een uitgever moet na 1652 zijn verschenen.Literatuur: zie Holstein XLIX, 61; Delen ?Iconographie van Antwerpen?? 613Prijs: ?16.500,-.

      Colonia Allobrogum (Geneva), no printer's name, Venundantur in Officina Fabriana, 1610. In fine additus est eiusdem autoris tractatus novus de signaturis rerum internis. Very early edition 1610 (first published in Frankfurt in 1608), 2 parts in 1 volume, the tract "De signaturis rerum internis," has a separate half-title page and pagination, but the register is consecutive throughout. Latin text, small 8vo, approximately 160 x 100 mm, 6¼ x 23¾ inches, engraved device of Sebastian Gryphius (griffin) on first title page with motto "Virtute Duce", no printer named, a few head- and tailpieces and decorated initials, 2 large woodcuts (pages 319 and 323), and lists of alchemical signs and symbols on KK8-LL1, pages: (40), 1-364, (60); (14), 1-92, (36), collation: ¶-¶¶8, ¶¶¶4, A-MM8, NN4 (-NN4 which is a blank), bound in full modern calf, raised bands to spine, gilt titled black morocco label, top edges brown, new endpapers. The preliminary pages contain "De vera antiqua philosophica medicina elegia" by Ulrich Bollinger, found at the end of the volume in other editions. Title page and following 12 leaves very slightly browned at edges, tiny worm track in text from ¶5-A1, another starts on C1 and continues to D8 with partial loss of some letters, all easily legible, top corner missing on 6 leaves of prelims, no loss of printed area, small chip to fore-edge margin of ¶5 due to paper flaw, no loss, A1 repaired neatly in inner margin, L8r (page 175) is misprinted so that the fore-edge margin is very wide and the inner margin is not visible, all still easily legible, occasional very light margin water staining, occasional very slight browning. A very good copy of an early edition. The editions printed at Geneva do not have the engraved title page that is found in the Frankfurt editions. There is another edition printed in Geneva in 1610 which has the same title page as ours with the Gryphius device but underneath Coloniae Allobrogum states "excudebat Paulus Marcellus" with no mention of Officina Fabriana. Otherwise the text is printed as ours. Oswald Croll [c. 1560 - 1609] was a professor of medicine and alchemy at the University of Marburg in Hesse, Germany. A strong proponent of alchemy and of using chemistry in medicine, he attempted to influence thinkers of his day towards viewing chemistry and alchemy as two separate fields. He published one volume in 1609, the year of his death, containing two books "Basilica Chymica" and "De signatura rerum" plus a long preface in which he expounds the ideas of Paracelsus to whom he was devoted. Basilica Chymica is a comprehensive summary of his researches, methods of preparation, and studies into chemical medicine or iatrochemistry. He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Tractatus novus de signaturis covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.

He pushes for the understanding and recognition of chemical compounds and the medicinal value of herbs and other processes first advanced by Paracelsus. It also discussed matters such as compound remedies, chemical organisation and acted as an introduction to chemistry in later years. The Tractatus novus de signaturis covered the relation of alchemy and chemistry to other fields of science, especially botany, suggesting the use of the doctrine of signatures to determine the medical property of plants.

        The Province of Ulster described with inset of "Enis Kelling Fort on Lough Farne", title cartouche and Scale cartouche showing "The Scale of Irish Miles".

      Sudbury & Humble,, 1610. London, Sudbury & Humble, 1610 [c.1627]. Original engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 51.2 cm wide x 38.3 cm wide. Mounted: ca 71 cm wide x 57 cm high. Excellent condition of this early, uncoloured Speed map of Ulster. Two tiny holes in outer margins only. John Speed (1552 ? 28 July 1629) was an English cartographer and historian. He is known as England's most famous Stuart period mapmaker. Speed was born at Farndon, Cheshire, and went into his father's tailoring business. While working in London, his knowledge of history led him into learned circles and he came to the attention of Sir Fulke Greville, who subsequently made him an allowance to enable him to devote his whole attention to research. As a reward for his earlier efforts, Queen Elizabeth granted Speed the use of a room in the Custom House.nnHis atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine was published in 1610/11, and contained the first set of individual county maps of England and Wales besides maps of Ireland [five in all] and a general map of Scotland. Most, but not all, of the county maps have town plans on them; those showing a Scale of Passes being the places he had mapped himself. In 1627, two years before his death, Speed published Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World which was the first world atlas produced by an Englishman. There is a fascinating text describing the areas shown on the back of the maps in English, although a rare edition of 1616 of the British maps has a Latin text - this is believed to have been produced for the Continental market. Much of the engraving was done in Amsterdam at the workshop of Jodocus Hondius. His maps of English counties are often found framed in homes throughout the United Kingdom.nnHe is buried with his wife in St Giles-without-Cripplegate church, Fore Street within the Barbican Estate in the City of London. A memorial to John Speed was also erected behind the altar of the church. According to the church's website, "[His was] one of the few memorials [in the church] that survived the bombing" of London during The Blitz of 1940?1941 ... The website also notes that "[t]he cast for the niche in which the bust is placed was provided by the Merchant Taylors' Company, of which John Speed was a member." His memorial brass has ended up on display in the Burrell Collection near Glasgow.nnIt was with the encouragement of William Camden that Speed began his Historie of Great Britaine, which was published in 1611.[7] Although he probably had access to historical sources that are now lost to us (he certainly used the work of Saxton and Norden), his work as a historian is considered mediocre and secondary in importance to his map-making, of which his most important contribution is probably his town plans, many of which provide the first visual record of the British towns they depict.nIn 1627 George Humble published the Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World, printed by John Dawson. This is the world map from this atlas with John Speed's name in the title, but not attributed to Speed's authorship.nnIn 1611, he also published The genealogies recorded in the Sacred Scriptures according to euery family and tribe with the line of Our Sauior Jesus Christ obserued from Adam to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a biblical genealogy, reprinted several times during the 17th century.

        Le pantheon Huguenot decouvert et ruiné contre l'aucteur de l'Idolatrie papistique, ministre de Vauvert, cy devant d'Aigues mortes

      chez Pierre Rigaud.. First Edition. Rare. The work will then be translated into Latin in 1613 as a frontispiece depicting the Pantheon of Hadrian broken and various characters. Dedicated to Henri IV. Parchment full contemporary. Smooth spine with respect to the red pen. A piece of parchment missing on the back (1,5x2,5cm) and the lower flat (3x1cm). Laces still present, but short. First cover page detached. From p. 222, a gallery to 1cm in height in the middle of the text, this gallery two holes become larger or smaller, then evolving to a greater extent on the index (3cm). Back linking books of the book, which takes less lacks some seams. A part of the reading of a Protestant book, Idolatry papistical (even wrote him in response to a first book Richeome, Huguenot Idolatry) Jesuit Louis Richeome shows that the Protestant heresy is not only idolatrous and iconoclastic, but also worshiping the moon and Venus, the Devil and other pagan deities, such as Saturn. Richeome was very popular in his time as a polemicist and writer, was nicknamed the French Cicero, he never ceased to defend the Jesuits against attacks from all sides, and lay siege to Henry IV and to place themselves under his protection in all his books. It is now considered one of the forerunners of devout humanism, played by François de Sales. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Magnum Mare del Zur cum Insula California

      Artist: Wit de Frederick ( - 1698 ) Amsterdam; issued in : Amsterdam; date: 1680 1610 - - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; condition: Very good; size (in cm): 49,5 x 57 - description: chart of the Pacific Ocean - vita of the artist: Frederik de Wit (1610 ? 1698) His Atlas began to appear around 1662 and by 1671 included anywhere from 17 to 151 maps each. In the 1690s he began to use a new title page "Atlas Maior" but continued to use his old title page. His atlas of the Low Countries first published in 1667,was named Nieuw Kaertboeck van de XVII Nederlandse Provinciën and contained 14 to 25 maps. De Wit quickly expanded upon his first small folio atlas which contained mostly maps printed from plates that he had acquired, to an atlas with 27 maps engraved by or for him. By 1671 he was publishing a large folio atlas with as many as 100 maps. Smaller atlases of 17 or 27 or 51 maps could still be purchased and by the mid-1670s an atlas of as many as 151 maps and charts could be purchased from his shop. In ca.1675 De Wit released a new nautical atlas. The charts in this atlas replaced the earlier charts from 1664 that are known today in only four bound examples and a few loose copies. De Wit?s new charts were sold in a chart book and as part of his atlases. De Wit published no fewer than 158 land maps and 43 charts on separate folio sheets.In 1695 De Wit began to publish a town atlas of the Netherlands after he acquired a large number of city plans at the auction of the famous Blaeu publishing firm?s printing plates.Dating De Wit's atlases is considered difficult because usually no dates were recorded on the maps and their dates of publication extended over many years.
