      Eichstatt 1613 - Basil Besler published "Hortus Eystettensis", the earliest large folio botanical, at Eichstatt near Nuremburg, in 1613.

The garden that he organized and illustrated for his patron was both ornamental and experimental, and the large book he had engraved after his drawings was unique. The prints, made by a team of master engravers, are strong and exquisitely done. Engraving. Very good condition apart from some slight offsetting, mild creasing, and a few skillfully repaired tears and small losses in the bottom margin.

        Piper Indicum Cordatum

      Eichstatt 1613 - 21 1/8" x 16 3/8" BESLER, Basil [1561-1629]. "Piper Indicum Cordatum." A selection from "Hortus Eystettensis." Hand-colored copperplate engraving. Eichstatt, 1613. Approximate paper size 21 1/8 x 16 3/8 inches. Basil Besler's great botanical work is a landmark of botanical documentation and pre-Linnaean classification, as well as one of the most splendidly stylized and aesthetically powerful botanical works ever produced. Besler was an apothecary and botanist who managed the gardens of Bishop Johann Conrad in Eichstatt, Germany. The Bishop's remarkable garden was one of the most extensive in Europe, containing a huge variety of European shrubs and flowering plants, as well as exotic specimens from Asia and the Americas. Besler used this encyclopedicresource as the basis for the "Hortus Eystettensis," in which he studied and depicted over a thousand flowers, representing 667 species in all. With the Bishop's patronage, he worked both as artist and publisher, directing a team of ten artists and engravers in creating 374 plates over 16 years. Published one hundred and fifty years before Linnaeus created his thorough system of classification, Besler's great florilegium represents an impressive early attempt to classify plants for the benefit of botanists, doctors and apothecaries. Each plant is given a distinct and often descriptive Latin title, and related species are grouped together on the same plate, or over a series of plates. Almost all specimens are shown complete and accurately colored, including delineations of their root systems. While Besler's work is obviously motivated by a scientific impulse to document and describe a remarkable collection of species, the beautiful presentation and dramatic stylization of the illustrations also convey a sense of the visual grandeur of the Bishop's great garden. Each specimen is placed on the page with an artist's understanding of formal and spatial relations. Most notably, the stylized depiction of foliage and root systems betrays a lively baroque sensibility, as the plants seem to dance across the page.

        I. Narcissus nobilis Orientalis polyanthos mixtus II. Narcissus de Argiers Polyanthos totus luteus. III. Narcissus Orientalis albusodo ratus calice stellato.

      Basil Besler, Nuremberg 1613 - Basil Besler's great botanical work, "Hortus Eystettensis ." is one the most impportant botanical books ever published.The author, Basilius Besler (1562-1629), was a Nuremberg apothecary and botanist.The work commemorated the celebrated gardens of its patron, Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, Prince Bishop of Eichstatt. 'The Book is horticultural rather than botanical, and is the earliest pictoral record of flowers in a single garden. It is divided into Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter sections and is concerned almost entirely with ornamental plants.The plates depict over 1000 flowers representing 667 species, many of them exotics appearing for the first time. The original drawings (most of them now in the University Library, Erlangen) took sixteen years to complete. With Bishops patronage Besler worked as an artist, autor and publisher directing a team of ten artists and engravers. The most important being Wolfgang Kilian of Ausburg. The work was completed in Autumn 1613.References: Nissen 158; Pritzel 745; Hunt 430; Blunt pp95-97; Hans Baier, Aus dem Antiquariat, n.95, 1970, pp.273-280; Coats, The book of Flowers., Image Size : , Platemark Size : 475x395 (mm), 18.75x15.5 (Inches), Paper Size : 564x440 (mm), 22.25x17.25 (Inches), Hand Colored, Copper Engraving

        Sorgumfructu rubro. Pl. 344

      Eichstatt: 1613 - Size: 545 × 440 mm. Mounted size: 730 x 640 mm. Very good condition, large margins, text on reverse. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. A wonderful 'life size' botanical print of Sorgum from Basilius Besler's epic work; the 'Hortus Eystettensis'. Besler was a Nuremberg apothecary, commissioned in 1600 by Konrad, the Bishop Prince of Eichstatt, to engrave the contents of his extensive gardens. The resulting 374 plates (illustrating more than a thousand flowers), were arranged according to the yearly seasons. When the book was first published in 1613, it was the largest book ever printed, and the scarce, coloured versions of the prints sold for ten times the price of those sold in black and white. Besler worked on the drawings for almost sixteen years, supervising a team of at least six engravers. The impressive size and scope of these elaborately produced copper engravings certainly make the Hortus Eystettensis one of the most ambitious and stunning botanical publications in the entire history of botanical illustration.

        Lachrimae lachrimarum. or The Distillation of Teares Shede For the untymely Death of The incomparable prince Panaretus. [Bound with:] — Lachrymae Lachryma or The Spirit of Teares Distilled The third Edition, with Addition of His Owne.

      [London: Printed by Humphrey Lownes, 1612 & 1613] - 2 works in one volume, small quarto (179 × 140 mm). Nineteenth-century green straight-grain morocco by Thomson of Edinburgh (with ticket), lately rebacked to style, covers with blind decorative roll border and gilt ornaments inside corners, wide turn-ins gilt all round, gilt edges. Bookplate of Sir Thomas Brooke (1830–1908), of Armitage Bridge House, near Huddersfield. Somewhat closely trimmed, the second work neatly extended with plain paper at fore and lower edge margins to match the page size of the first, printed headlines and signatures in second work shaved. Overall, very good copies of two rare editions. First work: white-line woodcut title with Prince Henry's arms, text within woodcut borders throughout, collates A-D4 (lacks final sig. D4, which has the woodcut border on recto but no text). Second work: white-line woodcut title with royal arms, text within woodcut borders on first 12 leaves, the remainder mostly letterpress save 2 leaves printed with white-line royal arms on black, collates A-B4, C8 (-C8, as issued), D-G4. Both works somewhat eccentrically collated, but textually complete. Second and third editions of these funerary verses, the sombre theme echoed in the design, the text predominately set in deep black woodcut borders with funerary ornaments either side. The promising life of Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales (1594–1612), eldest son of James VI of Scotland and I of England, was publically celebrated from the beginning. Nativity poems, banquets, tilts, and masques attended his birth; in his life, he inspired the praise of authors such as George Chapman, John Davies, Michael Drayton, Henry Peacham, and Francis Bacon, who dedicated the second edition of the Essays (1612) to him; and his sudden death from fever (now thought to be typhoid) was mourned in print by Thomas Campion, Joseph Hall, George Herbert, and Walter Ralegh, among others. Sylvester (1563–1618), who had depended on Prince Henry as his chief patron, was particularly effusive in his grief. The first edition also includes elegies in English, French, Latin, and Italian by the royal tutor, Walter Quin. The third edition is in two parts: the second part has a letterpress divisional title, "Sundry Funeral Elegies " dated 1613, and contains poems by John Donne ("Look to Me, Faith; and look to my Faith, God"), Sir William Cornwallis, Sir Edward Herbert, Sir Henry Goodyere, and Henry Burton. Both editions are bibliographically complicated, the first edition appearing in various combinations of sheets which "may exist in reimpositions which have not yet been adequately studied" (ESTC). STC designates this variant "Anr. ed.", two of the three copies cited matching this in having A3r line 4 "Cædars" and B3r line 10 "Hee". In this variant the colophon is omitted from D4r (this leaf lacking in this copy), though it retains the frame of woodcuts. STC 23577 & 23578 ; Keynes, Donne, 72 (3rd ed.)

Schweinslederband der Zeit auf 4 Bünden über Holzdeckeln mit abgeschrägten Deckelkanten. 2 intakte Schließen. 8vo. Jeweils erste Ausgabe. Sammelband mit drei Schriften des flämischen Jesuiten Lessius (1554-1623), darunter sein berühmtes, in zahlreichen Auflagen und Sprachen verbreitetes Werk über die Kunst, lange zu leben und sich bis ins hohe Alter die körperliche und geistige Gesundheit zu erhalten. Dem beigefügt ist die Abhandlung "De vitae sobriae commodis" des italienischen Hygienikers Luigi Cornaro (1467-1566), auf dem Lessius' Werk beruht. "Even now not without interest" (Cath. Enc. IX). - Beigebunden sind Lessius' seltenes Werk über die Vorsehung und die Unsterblichkeit der Seele, ebenfalls "translated into different languages, even into Chinese" (ebd.), sowie seine Abhandlung über die Wahl des geistlichen Standes. - Der etwas beriebene Einband mit Plattenstempeln innerhalb von Feldherrnkopf-Rollen. Aus der Bibliothek des Jesuitenkollegs Hall in Tirol mit entspr. hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel (datiert im Druckjahr 1613). Später, wie durch Titelstempel ausgewiesen, in der Haller Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek. Der kaiserliche Protonotar Florian Waldauf (auch: Baldauf; um 1450-1510; 1495 in Antwerpen Gegenzeichner des Vorvertrags zur habsburgisch-spanischen Doppelhochzeit) und seine Frau Barbara hatten 1501 der Pfarrkirche in Hall eine Marienkapelle, eine Reliquiensammlung und ein Predigtamt gestiftet. Die Stadt Hall als Verwalterin der Waldauf-Stiftung hatte dafür zu sorgen, "das alle jar etliche puecher nach anzaigen des predigers zum predigambt gekauft und in der heiligen capellen liberei an ketten gehangen und versorgt werden"; ferner sollten der Bibliothek Bücher aus den Nachlässen der Prediger und Meßkapläne zukommen. Entgegen der Anordnung Waldaufs wurde die Bibliothek kaum durch gezielte Ankäufe vermehrt, sondern größtenteils durch die zufällige Übernahme von Büchern und Schenkungen, hauptsächlich von Geistlichen, Stiften und Schülern. Der bekannteste Vorbesitzer ist Johannes Eck. "Nach 400 Jahren ihres Bestehens und nur fallweisem Zuwachs schien das Interesse am Fortbestand der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek als geschlossener Sammlung verlorenzugehen. Obendrein war das Stiftungsvermögen im Ersten Weltkrieg vollends untergegangen. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde eine unbekannte Anzahl wertvoller Handschriften und Drucke an Privatpersonen in Hall und Umgebung ausgehändigt, um sie vor der Beschlagnahmung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu sichern. Nach Kriegsende wurde jedoch keines dieser Bücher rückerstattet" (Hdb. der hist. Buchbestände in Dtl.). I: De Backer/Sommervogel IV, 1737, 13. Krivatsy 6913. Parkinson/L. 1453. Vgl. Hirsch/H.
