Lisbon, Por Pedro Crasbeeck, 1613. 4°, nineteenth-century (second half) quarter cloth over marbled boards (minor wear to corners) spine with short title gilt, text block edges sprinkled. Woodcut Bragança arms (in an unusual diamond shape) below a ducal coronet on title page. Title page within typographical border. Woodcut initials. A number of woodcut tailpieces, including one full page on leaf 432 verso. A few running heads and sidenotes touched; some dampstaining in index, final page somewhat soiled. In good to very good condition. Early title page ink inscription by Antonio de Sancta Thereza [2 additional words scored]. (9), 432, (28) ll. *** FIRST EDITION. A second edition appeared in 1619; there were editions in Spanish published at Madrid and Sevile in 1615. Bell writes that the mantle of Frei Thomé de Jesus, the most celebrated preacher of his time, "fell upon Francisco Fernandez Galvão (1554-1610), the prose of whose Sermões . . . is admirably restrained and pure." The author, a native of Lisbon, had evident oratorical talent at a rather early age: when he lectured at Coimbra soon after receiving his degrees there, his college audiences were held in rapt silence for as long as he spoke. After a dozen years as a royal preacher he left for Rome in 1585, where his skill was compared with that of Francisco Panigarola, Bishop of Asti. In 1590, when the Pope named him archdeacon of Villa Nova de Cerveira (archbishopric of Braga), he returned to Portugal, where he again found favor with the royal family. Fernandes Galvão bequeathed his manuscripts, including these sermons, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Das rechte Drittel des Blattes fehlt, es wurde vermutlich wegen eines Papierschadens entfernt. Alt in reliefierter Goldleiste gerahmt. Prachtvolles Blatt aus dem "Hortus Eystettensis", dem großartigsten Werk botanischer Buchillustration des 17. Jahrhunderts mit zwei Darstellungen des Goldlack. Zu verdanken ist der Hortus dem kunstsinnigen Johann Conrad von Gemmingen, Bischof von Eichstätt (reg. 1594-1612), der seinen Regierungssitz in ein Fürstenschloss umbauen ließ, mit prächtigen Gärten darunter. Der Nürnberger Apotheker Basilius Besler (1561-1629) legte im Auftrag dazu eine botanische Prachtpublikation vor, den "Hortus Eystettensis", den Garten von Eichstätt. Erstmals 1613 erschienen zeigt das Werk auf 367 ganzseitigen Kupfertafeln insgesamt 1084 Pflanzen. Ob diese allerdings tatsächlich alle im fürstbischöflichen Garten auf Willibaldsburg gehalten wurden, ist nicht gesichert. Papier gleichmäßig gebräunt.

Basil Besler; Kilian, Wolfgang
Basil Besler, Nuremberg. 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 : 473x395 (mm), 18.625x15.5 (Inches), Paper Size : , Hand Colored, Copper Engraving
