Vergilius Polydorus.
1671. (38), 511, (7), 100, (92) SS. Es fehlt das gest. Frontispiz. Pergamentband der Zeit auf 3 durchzogenen Bünden. 12mo. Einzige Ausgabe bei Elzevier; vereinigt die wichtigsten Werke (erstmals 1525 bzw. 1531 erschienen) des vielseitig interessierten Humanisten Vergilius Polydorus (um 1470-1555) aus Urbino. Er "excolirte die Literatur zu Bologna, und bezeigte zugleich grosse Lust zur Historie, Antiquitäten und Physic. Nach etlichen Jahren wurde er päbstlicher Cammermeister zu Rom; und als ihn der Pabst einst nach Engelland schickte, machte ihn König Henr. VIII aus besonderer Genade zum Archi-Diacono an der Kirchen zu Wells" (Jöcher IV, 1532). Das erste Werk, eine „véritable encyclopédie, remplie de détails et d'anecdotes curieuses" (Caillet), behandelt die Ursprünge menschlicher Künste, Wissenschaften, Religionen und Gesellschaftsformen, mit Kapiteln zu Astronomie, Magie, Medizin, Buchdruckerkunst und Bibliotheken, Jagd und Feste, Technik, Handel u. v. a. "While in England in 1526, he wrote a dialogue on prodigies [...] not printed until 1531" (Thorndike VI, 488f.). - „Ce volume est un de ceux que Daniel a fait exécuter à Leyde, par la veuve et les héritiers de Jean Elzevier" (Willems). Eine frühere Ausgabe in der Art der Elzevier-Drucke war 1644 bei Heger in Leyden erschienen. - Teils etwas braunfleckig und wasserrandig. Im Index das Bl. Ff12 mit kl. Eckausriß (minimale Buchstabenberührung). Über OCLC nur 1 Nachweis (Göttingen; kein Ex. in USA). Willems 1464. OCLC 46252439. Vgl. Rosenthal (Bibl. Magica) 8832. Vgl. Calilet 11087f. und 11090.

Trier, ca. 1680 (nach 1671). - Gr.-Fol. (ca. 44 x 32 cm). [7], 208 num. Bl. (o. d. wohl weiße fol. 89). Blattgröße 42,5 x 29,8 cm, Schriftspiegel ca. 38 x 24 cm. Mit ca. 160 Initialen in bunten Deckfarben und Tinte, zahlreichen Initialen in Rot sowie bunter Bordüre am Anfang. Musiknotation auf 5 schwarzen Linien. Hervorhebungen in Rot, einige Überschriften in alternierend bunten Buchstaben. Blindgeprägtes zeitgenössisches Schweinsleder über Holzdeckeln mit 5 (von 10) Messingbeschlägen auf den Deckeln. Mit Pergamentmanuskriptfragmenten wohl des 14. Jahrhunderts. Beschläge des Rückdeckels fehlen, Messingschliessen ergänzt. Buchblock gelockert, mehrere Blätter mit großen, teils alt laienhaft restaurierten Einrissen, wie bei Antiphonaren üblich, daher auch stellenweise mit Randläsuren, etwas gebräunt und fingerfleckig. Dekoratives Antiphonar, geschrieben für eine Kirche des Erzbistums Trier mit reicher Illumination. Die Lokalisierung ist aufgrund des Festkalenders am Ende unstrittig. Für die Datierung findet sich auf fol. 206r. ein Terminus post quem (Fest der Hl. Rosa von Lima, der ersten Heiligen Amerikas, heiliggesprochen 1671). Fol. 120r. mit montiertem Blatt aus einem älteren Antiphonar. Bei dem fehlenden herausgetrennten Blatt 89 handelte es sich wahrscheinlich um ein weißes, wie das folgende weiße Bl. 90.

Die Seitenansicht eines Gesichtes wird stark vereinfacht (mit wenigen Federzügen, sehr modern anmutend) in die Wölbung eingefügt.

China)
London 1671 - Copper engraving. Uncoloured. Size: 35.5 x 29 cm. (14 x 11½ inches) Very good condition; some light age toning of sheet and slight foxing, not affecting the image. This fascinating copperplate engraving comes from a famous work originally published in Dutch by the trade diplomat Jan Nieuhoff, but translated into English by the British mapmaker and publisher John Ogilby. The images provide a document of early western contact with China and come from the account written by the diplomat Jan Nieuhoff who was the steward of the first Dutch trade Ambassadors to China. The Dutch East India Company was keen to persuade the Emperor to open up the Chinese ports to the Dutch, and Nieuhoff joined Pieter van Goyer and Jacob de Keyser on the mission to visit the Emperor Chun-Chi. The work includes many remarks on Chinese manners and customs, together with a second part comprising a general description of the Chinese Empire. The fine plates and illustrations show town views in China, Tibet and Tartary, together with subjects such as costumes and natural history. Atlas Chinensis is a superb work on China, noteworthy not only for text, bringing notice of the mysteries of the East to English readers, but for the magnificent engraved illustrations and plates.

The Dutch East India Company was keen to persuade the Emperor to open up the Chinese ports to the Dutch, and Nieuhoff joined Pieter van Goyer and Jacob de Keyser on the mission to visit the Emperor Chun-Chi.
