Contemporary green vellum. 175, [1] pp. Rare multi-lingual edition of a famous treatise on children's education by Plutarch, edited as a school book, printed in four different types, one for each of the parallel texts: Greek, Latin, French and German, in four columns on facing pages and with Latin notes in a fourth type in the left margins. Plutarch's essay was edited and translated by Theodore Vietor, pedagogue and professor of Greek at the Latin School in Marburg, Germany. We have found no information about Vietor of his edition of Plutarch.Plutarch's essay discusses the best education and care to give babies, children and adolescents, with specific advice for parents. The present edition starts with "Epigramma" by Christopher Mulder, a short speech by Philip Melanchton to the youth of Wittenberg, dated 1519, a dedicatory letter by Vietor to Maurits of Hessen and his son Otho, dated at Marburg, December 1597, and the author's preface, also dated December, 1597.

1612.

Agréable exemplaire. Titre orné d'un médaillon gravé en taille-douce avec le buste d'Horace, 103 figures emblématiques à pleine page gravées à l'eau-forte (comprises dans la pagination), 212 pp., (1) f. Légère trace d' auréole en marge inférieure de texte qui part de la page 171 à 206 -voir photo-.‎ ‎Seconde édition de l'un des plus célèbres livres d'emblèmes du XVIIe siècle. C'est l'une des plus estimées. La première édition des emblèmes de Vaenius avait vu le jour à Anvers en 1607. Ce livre constituait un événement majeur de l'histoire de l'emblème et il fut réédité jusqu'à la fin du XVIIIe siècle. L'ouvrage était en rupture avec les précédents livres d'emblèmes, avec une iconographie prépondérante sur le texte (Vaenius était peintre, il fut le maître de Rubens), et de thèmes laïques au détriment des thèmes religieux habituels. Chaque emblème occupe presque entièrement la page de droite (avec en dessous le texte français de Meyere et de Cordemoy) alors que les textes explicatifs tirés d'Horace, Sénèque etc. avec leur adaptation hollandaise par Vaenius figurent page de gauche. Le texte latin présente quelques changements (ajouts ou altérations) par rapport à l'édition originale de 1608. En revanche, les gravures sont les mêmes. Les deux tirages de la première édition comprenaient la traduction du texte en flamand et français ou en anglais et italien. Dans cette sec … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rhodius, Ambrosius (praeses)
Wittenberg: Wolfgang Meissner, 1612. Written by a Polymath who Worked with Brahe and Kepler4to. Woodcut tail piece. [14] ll. 18th century wallpaper wrappers, corners of wrappers chipped, some light wear to spine, lightly browned internally, early manuscript numeration indicating that this was once bound in a receuil. The extremely rare FIRST & ONLY EDITION of Rhodius' early study of food and drink. Sections discuss how digestion works; the effects of food and drink on one's health; and what diet is best for those that are sick. Organized into 120 points, the Disputatio is supported by citations to classical authors (such as Galen and Hippocrates) and for the wine collector, it is interesting to note that items 86 to 99 pertain to wine. There is with no known copy in American libraries. The 120 points are followed by a series of questions asked and answered. These include: Does water nourish a person, or is it just a vehicle for digestion? Can diet be changed to combat specific illnesses? Should one get extremely drunk twice a month to maintain health? (One argument in support of heavy drinking is that vomiting helps to expel undesirable bodily fluids.) Ambrosius Rhodius (1577-1633) was a fascinating scientist. While a young mathematician, in 1600, he was sent to work with Tycho Brahe in Prague, where he also spent a considerable amount of time with Johannes Kepler. He returned to Wittenberg in 1601 where he became a professor of philosophy in 1601 and later took his medical degree in 1610. (This was published two years later.)

IGNATIUS OF LOYOLA, SAINT (1491-1556)]; Ribadeneira, Pedro de (1526-1611), various artists
Paris: Jean le Clerc, Rue Sainct Jean de Latran, 1612. Album: Bound in modern marbled boards. A broad-margined set on thin paper, mild marginal soiling, light stain to map, a few short, discreetly repaired tears to margins (far from the images), trivial stains. Overall very well preserved and complete. Very rare. An engraved suite of the life and miracles of Ignatius of Loyola, produced shortly after Ignatius' beatification in 1609 and meant to advance his canonization. The plates depict scenes from the life of Ignatius as described in Pedro Ribadeneira's Life of Loyola, with engraved captions describing the scenes. These are reduced copies of the Antwerp series produced in Theodoor Galle's workshop in 1610. They reproduce the work of the artists Cornelis Galle (1576-1650) [title, plates 2, 5, 10]; Theodoor Galle (1571-1633) [plates 1 and 6]; Adriaan Collaert (1560-1618) [3,7,9,14]; Jean Collaert (1560-1618) [15]; and Karel van Mallery (1571-1635) [4,8,11,13]. Plate 12 is unattributed."In about 1600 Pedro de Ribadeneira, author of the most widespread early biographies of Ignatius of Loyola, commissioned a series of sixteen large paintings illustrating the life of the founder of the Jesuit Order for the Jesuit house in Madrid. A few years later, as the campaign for beatification and canonization of Ignatius gained momentum, he had prints made after these paintings, which were published in Antwerp in 1610. Although the original paintings by Juan Mesa are lost… seven drawings for these prints have been identified in the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg…"Ignatius was … [Click Below for Full Description]

BLAEU, Willem
Amsterdam,: Willem Blaeu,, 1612. 1608 [but 1612]. Large engraved wall map, on four sheets joined, with traces of original colour, decorative boarder of the local populace, and major ports, together with descriptive text, title in manuscript, and engraved foliate border, some significant loss to map and text. Blaeu's landmark map of Africa, which was "of such importance that for the next 100 years numerous mapmakers throughout Europe... copied [it] in both design and content" (Betz). The map of Africa depicts the European conception of the continent at the dawn of the seventeenth century, an especially interesting juncture when the coastlines were well-explored, but its heart remained an enigma. Blaeu was influenced by Giacomo Gastaldi’s large map of 1564, which was copied in Antwerp by Cornelis De Jode, as well as Abraham Ortelius’s maps of 1595. He also considered the maps present in Filippo Pigafetta’s book on the Congo, based on the explorations of Duarte Lopes (1591) and the map included in the second edition of Giovanni Battista Ramusio’s 'Navigatione et Viaggi' (1550), in addition to Portuguese sources included in Jan Huygens van Linschoten’s 'Itinerario' (1596). In west Africa, Blaeu depicted territorial divisions similar to Gastaldi and Ortelius, labelling both Barbaria and Libya Interior. The Niger and Senegal Rivers combine to flow into the Atlantic as one great system, with an apocryphal Lake Niger being the source for the latter. The great entrepot of Tombotu (Timbukto) is shown and the Gold Coast is based on a map by Luis de Texiera, which found i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary dark brown calf. Rebacked, restored and with new endpapers. engraved title + [5], 49, [16] ll. including engravings. First edition of a famous and original treatise on perspective by the prominent mathematician Salomon de Caus (1576?-1626), here in the very rare issue with the imprint of John Norton in London (alone) in 1612, with the name and date revised in the title-plate. The ESTC records 1611 London and 1612 London/Frankfurt issues of Caus's Perspective, but not the present 1612 London issue.Caus was renowned as an inventor of mechanical devices, both utilitarian and entertaining. His present work clearly explains and illustrates all aspects of perspective drawing, including intricate projections, optical illusions, shadows, anamorphic images and the mirroring of objects.

Das güldene Büchlein Plutarchi, von der Kinderzucht. Frankfurt, Erasmus Kempffer, 1612. 8vo. Set in 2 columns. Contemporary green vellum. 175, [1] pp. Rare multi-lingual edition of a famous treatise on children's education by Plutarch, edited as a school book, printed in four different types, one for each of the parallel texts: Greek, Latin, French and German, in four columns on facing pages and with Latin notes in a fourth type in the left margins. Plutarch's essay was edited and translated by Theodore Vietor, pedagogue and professor of Greek at the Latin School in Marburg, Germany. We have found no information about Vietor of his edition of Plutarch.Plutarch's essay discusses the best education and care to give babies, children and adolescents, with specific advice for parents. The present edition starts with "Epigramma" by Christopher Mulder, a short speech by Philip Melanchton to the youth of Wittenberg, dated 1519, a dedicatory letter by Vietor to Maurits of Hessen and his son Otho, dated at Marburg, December 1597, and the author's preface, also dated December, 1597.

LANCRE, Pierre de
Paris: Jean Berjon, 1612. Jean Berjon, 1612. Virtually impossible to find. First impression of the text, without the modification of the title page and last 2 sheets. According to Guaita (461), only the modified copies were delivered to the public. As such, this version is not quoted by bibliographers and we were not able to trace any institutionalsed copy of it. The modification is evidenced by the existence of the so called "duplicate copies", the only ones which still contain the initial print of the last sheet of the book as in our copy, in parallel with the modified reprint of the last two sheets. These are part of the edition already shared with Nicolas Buon, published the same year, but after the initial printing, done by Berjon (see Guaita's double copy, printed by Buon and ex. Ouvaroff, double, printed by Berjon). Our copy contains only the first print of the last sheet, where the text is finished on line 25-e on page 568 with the words "font des malefices". The duplicate copies also contain this sheet and, in addition, the reprint made later of this last sheet, that is to say the final version, where the text resumes at line 25-e with "qui me fait conclure", and continues until the middle of page 569, with page 570 blank (see Caillet, quoting the copy of Ouvaroff). Only the copies containing the rewritten version of the last pages (567 - 570) were delivered to the public (see copy BNF or Lyon), therefore with the collation giving 570 pages instead of 568, and non-duplicates, which is why the duplicate copies are in their turn almost impossible to find.

Antwerp, ex officina Plantiniana, apud viduam & filios Ioannis Moreti, 1612. First edition, handsomely bound, of this classic history of the ancient Benedictine Abbey of Fulda undertaken by the Jesuit historian, Christopher Brouwer (1559-1617), who was rector of the Jesuit College which had been established there in 1571. During his time in charge of the school one of its most famous pupils was the future Jesuit polymath Athanasius Kircher (1602-80). Brouwer's history is notable for its use of early manuscripts from Fulda's library that are now lost, such as four from the 9th century, the Supplex Libellus, a manuscript of the abbot Hrabanus Maurus' poems, Rudolf of Fulda's Miracula sanctorum and Candidus' Vita Aegil. From the Vita Aegil, the life of Abbot Eigil, Brouwer also includes three engraved illustrations (pp. 90 & 170) copied from a now lost series of images which illustrated the manuscript making it the first known illustrated biography, possibly b … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUONARROTI, Michelangelo, SCULTORI [GHISI], Adamo.
Rome, Jo. Bapta. de Rubeis, 1612. Octavo (197 x 156 mm.), portrait of Michelangelo in ovale and 73 engravings. Light browning, an ink spot on the first page, a very fine copy in contemporary Italian limp vellum with manuscript title on spine.The scarce first edition, second state, of this superb collection of 73 engravings after Michelangelo's frescos in the Sistine Chapel, with a portrait of the painter.Produced to facilitate the study of anatomy and models for artists-in-training, and in general to provide reproductions of those not easily accessible masterpieces, the plates were engraved by the Mantuan artist Adamo Scultori (also called Ghisi, 1530-74) and probably first printed by Giovanni Battista de' Rossi (de Rubeis) in Rome, c.1580. Michelangelo's portrait, dated 1612 and not systematically present, shows the painter aged 74.The number of recorded plates is variable, with Brunet listing 74, Bartsch and Le Blanc 72, and Steinmann/Wittkover 72 to 74. With 73, this copy collates like those at Pierpont Morgan and the Royal Collections. The plates portray the sybils and prophets, and individual figures of men, women and children in various poses, extracted from Sistine Chapel frescoes. In particular, they also reproduce frescoes that are no longer extant.
