      1525 - Vienne: Michael Servetus, 1541. Woodcut, printed area 285 x 430mm. One of the earliest obtainable maps to show the New World, this example being the fourth and last issue of the Fries reduction of Wäldseemüller's famous map, which is the first printed atlas map devoted to the Americas and said to have been compiled with the assistance of Columbus himself. It shows the eastern coasts of America and the western coast of Europe & Africa 55º North to 35º South, with a rudimentary 'Florida', Cuba, Hispaniola and Jamaica. In his version Fries added a Spanish flag over Cuba and a vignette scene in South America depicting cannibals and an opossum, both reported by Vespucci. It was Wäldseemüller's world map of 1507 that first used the name 'America', placing in southern South America, after Vespucci, who explored that region and proved it was not part of Asia. When the name began to be used for the entire landmass Wäldseemüller used this map to emphasise Columbus's importance: a Latin text above 'Terra Nova' reads 'This land and the adjacent islands were discovered by Christopher Columbus on the mandate of the King of Castile'. This map was originally intended not for an edition of Ptolemy but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller: his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of the 'Geography'. The title, as above, is on the reverse within a plain border. BURDEN: 4.

         Interessante ms. perg. datato 24 ottobre 1525 costituito da 36 fogli (di cui 34 utilizzati per la scrittura) relativo all'atto di acquisto dei monaci cistercensi di San Martino dei Bocci (Parma) di diversi appezzamenti di terreno in Valserena (indicati con topoinmi quali la Longirolla, la Chiozola ed altri) redatti dai notai Johannes Baptista de Balesiis e Hyeronimus Gnoziis. Il testo e' vergato in scrittura umanistica corsiva, in latino. Coperta in cartone grezzo, con titolo ms. (macchia di umidita'). Il monastero di san Martino de' Bocci detto 'Certosa di Paradigma', fondato nel 1230 da Gerardo Bianchi, fu sede dei cistercensi di Citeaux. L'attivita' di intervento sul paesaggio da parte dei monaci riguardo alla bonifica dei terreni e alla creazione di zone a coltura, si riflette sul nome Valserena, resa tale dopo essere stata liberata dai 'bocci', cioe' da sterpaglie e pruni.

         Contra novum errorem, de sacramento corporis et sanguinis domini nostri Iesu Christi, epistola Ioannis Bugenhagij Pomerani.

      - [Augsburg], [Simprecht Ruff], 1525. 8vo. [4] lvs. Disbound in later brocade wrappers. VD 16 B 9389; Geisenhof 170; Knaake III, 126. Rare Latin edition of one of Bugenhagen's polemical treatises against the Zwinglian interpretation of the Eucharist. Between 1525 and 1529 the differences between Lutherans and Zwinglians about the nature of Christ's presence in the Eucharist had been expressed in an acrimonious pamphlet war. Both parties rejected the doctrine of transubstantiation, but Luther and his followers retained the notion of a real corporeal presence of Christ in the bread and wine, while the Zwinglians did not. Bugenhagen's 'Contra novum errorem' was published primarily against Zwingli and appeared in the late summer of 1525. It was printed in Wittenberg, Nürnberg, Dresden, Speyer, as well as in Augsburg. - A few marginal wormholes (not affecting the text, except for one tiny wormhole which slightly affects the woodcut border on the title page) and one wormhole in the text (slightly affecting about four letters).

         1525 Handwritten Reformation Manuscript Zwingli De Caena Dominica Lord’s Supper

      Transcribed from: [Tiguri : In aedibus Christophori Froschouer, anno 1525, mense Martio. First edition] - 1525 Handwritten Reformation Manuscript Zwingli De Caena Dominica Lord’s Supper “I beseech Christ for this one thing only, that He will enable me to endure all things courageously.” Ulrich Zwingli A contemporary, original handwritten manuscript of Ulrich Zwingli’s ‘De Caena Dominica’. This work is an identical transcribed version of the 1525 first edition of Zwingli’s letter addressed to Matthew Alber. This eucharistic letter was written in 1524 to Alber, the preacher at Rutlingen, discussing the Lord’s Supper. According to Johnson and Leith, “Zwingli would come to incorporate this exegesis into his later theology, and soon thereafter in 1525, this move would precipitate a conflict with the Erasmian Catholic Joachim am Grut before the city council. As a result of Zwingli’s victory in this conflict, the Mass in Zurich was abolished and a form of the [Lord’s] Supper thought to be more in accord with apostolic practice was instituted.” (Johnson, Leith 314) The original letter was also copied in manuscript form, and not initially delivered to Alber. The hope here was to avoid quarrels with Martin Luther. (Smith & Jacobs, 345). While this example is completely handwritten, it maintains the integrity of the original printing – font styles, attention to text placement – with the only major difference being the lack of a title page and an unillustrated first initial.

      1525 - Stampato in Vinegia per Giovanniantonio et fratelli da Sabbio del mese d'Agosto l'Anno del Signore mille cinquecento venticinque [1525]. In-4 (210x150 mm.), pp. (24), cc. 201, pp. (120). 1 tavola incisa nel testo a doppia pagina raffigurante la provincia di Avignone. Legatura in piena pelle in stile retrospettivo (a imitazione di legature monastiche del primo 500), dorso a nervi con fregi geometrici a secco. Bell'esemplare con lievi e marginali segni del tempo, completo anche della carta bianca C4. Prima edizione del Canzoniere con il commento di Alessandro Vellutello, che ebbe di qui in poi un'immensa fortuna di pubblico e di critica, essendo stato ristampato circa trenta volte. Il Canzoniere è preceduto dalle vite del Petrarca e di Madonna Laura, scritte sempre dal Vellutello, e seguito dai Trionfi, annunciati da un frontespizio autonomo. E' questa inoltre la prima volta in cui il Canzoniere appare diviso in tre parti, con i Trionfi che ne costituiscono una quarta e distinta parte. Per la sua rarità questa stampa venne in passato ritenuta immaginaria, come si legge nel commento del Serassi alle Rime del Patrarca stampate nel 1746 in Bergamo dal Volpi.

         Opus Novum Gildae Britannus Monachus cui sapientis cognomentum est inditum, de calamitate excidio, et conquestu Britanniae.

      Antwerp (?) C. Ruremond (?) 1525 - "The Only Early Work Covering the Phase of British History to Which Arthur is Commonly Assigned" (The Arthurian Encyclopedia) GILDAS. Opus Novum Gildae Britannus Monachus. cui sapientis cognomentum est inditum, de calamitate excidio, et conquestu Britanniae. [Antwerp: C. Ruremond, 1525 (?)]. First edition. This work has usually been, and often continues to be, attributed to the printer Pynson in London in 1525; Dennis Rhodes in his 1979 article in The Library (IV, 1979, pp. 355-360) attempts to identify different title-pages, and considers the title at hand to be that printed by Ruremond circa 1525-27. Text is edited by Polydore Vergilius and R. Ridley. Octavo. Nineteenth century morocco, gilt. A few leaves closely shaved affecting an occasional letter. A very good copy of a rare and important work. Gildas (516? - 570? [Annales Cambriae put his death at 572]), probably a monk, was an important early British historian who became known as Saint Gildas the Wise. He attended the school in Wales founded by Saint Illtud, though his style hints that he may also have studied elsewhere or that the curriculum at Wales was broader and more Roman than might be expected. His De Excidio Britanniae (On the Ruin of Britain) is the only work of its period covering time period to which King Arthur is assigned, yet does not mention Arthur by name (Gildas seems oddly reluctant to name names in general, with the exception of Ambrosius in the fifth century). Gildas' allusion to the important battle of Mount Baden is a well-known crux: Welsh tradition attributes this triumph solely to Arthur, yet Gildas dose not name the commander. Pollard and Redgrave, STC, 11892: "Not an STC book. See The Library IV (1979) pp. 355-360." HBS 66936. $2,750 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Strassburg Johannes Grüninger for Johannes Koberger 3 April 1525 - Folio (40.5 x 26.3 cm). Printed title within elaborate woodcut border, 27 double-page maps of the ancient world, 22 double-page maps of the modern world, one full-page map of Lotharingia on verso of map 46, together 50 woodcut maps, most with Latin text on versos enclosed in elaborate woodcut borders, mounted on vellum guards, woodcut diagrams in the text (one by Dürer), including one full-page of an armillary sphere. Contemporary half blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, two clasps; lacking one strap. Fine example of Fourth Strassburg edition of Ptolemy. The work includes the first printed map in an edition of Ptolemy to name America, the first printed map of Southeast Asia, and the first printed map of China. The list of contributors is a veritable 'who's who' of German Renaissance publishing: the text was translated by Wilibald Pirckheimer using the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the editorship of Johann Huttich; the ornamental woodblock designs on the reverse of the maps are attributed to Albrecht Dürer, who also contributed the woodblock of the armillary sphere. The present edition was printed for Johann Koberger by Johann Grüninger, using the woodblocks of the first Grüninger edition of 1522. The present edition features 27 woodcut maps based on Ptolemy and 23 'modern' maps based on geographical knowledge of the time. All are in the trapezoid shape developed by the German cartographer Nicolaus Germanus in 1460. The 'modern' section was copied by Lorenz Fries, in a reduced format, from maps prepared by Waldseemüller in 1513, and accordingly contains new maps of North America and the West Indies, Lorraine, Switzerland, Crete, North Africa, Southern Africa, Southern Asia and the World. To that group Fries added three maps: South East Asia and the East Indies, China and Japan, and a navigational map of the world. The two former are the first separate printed maps of the regions they depict. With the exception of Quinta Asie Tabula, the maps are from the same blocks as those of the 1522 edition. Map 47 is single page on verso of map 46. Map 50, Orbis typus universalis by Laurentius Fries, is the first map in a Ptolemy in which the name America is used. The account of the discoveries of Columbus and others is on the back of Map 28. The dedication by Bilibaldus Pirckeymherus, dated at Norenberge. Kalendis septembris. Anno Salutis nostre. M.D.XXIV., begins on the verso of the title and ends on the verso of folio 2. Index Ptolemaei (with half-title within illustrated border): [68] p. at end. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Eyn Schrecklich geschicht und gericht Gotes uber Thomas Müntzer / darynn Gott offentlich desselbigen geyst lügenstrafft und verdamnet (A gruesome story and judgment by God over Thomas Müntzer, whose spirit God has punished and damned for his lies)

      NP: NP, 1525. First edition. Hardcover. g. Octavo. (4) 12pp. (Benzing, Lutherbibliographie, 2168). Bound in decorative brown paper-covered boards. Title within historiated woodcut border. Decorative initials. The ornate woodcut border on the title page depicts the judgment of Paris at the bottom, a motif unrelated to the content of this pamphlet but a popular theme for 16th Century printers. Our copy is a rare variant only held by the Staatsbibliothek Berlin (there attributed to Josef Klug) but the text was published a number of times in various locales by different printers in 1525, i.e. Michael Blum, Leipzig, Jakob Schmidt, Speyer, Stöckel, Leipzig, Heinrich Steiner, Augsburg, Friedrich Peypus, Nürnberg, and others. The designs and the layout, even spelling of the text vary from printer to printer, including variant copies of the same printer. Considering the rebellious, inflammatory situation in Germany it can be assumed that this publication devised by Luther was a pamphlet to be distributed extensively to help quell the insurgence of the peasants. The polemic pamphlet by Martin Luther was directed against Thomas Müntzer and published in 1525, the year of Müntzer's death. Müntzer was an fellow Christian and follower of Martin Luther's. As early as 1519 he started to develop his own teachings considering Luther's reformation not radical enough. "The study of the Theologia Germanica recommended by Luther, and of the works of Tauler and other mystics exercised a not inconsiderable influence upon him" (Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia). Müntzer became instrumental in the Anabaptist movement and a major leader in the peasant uprising in Germany, a revolt against feudal oppression during the 1520s. He was captured at the Battle of Frankenhausen in 1525, tortured and executed. Luther cites letters of Müntzer to prove his blasphemous and radical influx going as far as arguing that Müntzer's execution represented God's judgment. In the introduction of this pamphlet Luther identifies Thomas Müntzer as schismatic claiming he speaks with the devil's tongue in God's name. Luther offers proof of Müntzer's ways in publishing some of Müntzer's letters wherein, according to Luther, he defies God and commits blasphemy, describing the poor peasants following Müntzer as lost souls for all eternity. Two of the letters published here were addressed to Albrecht VII. von Mansfeld who participated in the Battle of Frankenhausen in 1525, defeating the revolt to end the so-called Peasant Wars. The first letter by Müntzer is a blatant appeal to peasants to engage in armed revolt against the ruling miscreants ("Lasst euer schwerd nicht kalt werden von blut" - don't let your swords get cold from blood); it contains geographical and personal references, quotes various passages of the Bible and promising the help of God in this struggle, dated 'Mühlhausen, Im XXV, Jar. - 1525, Thomas Müntzer A servant of God against the godless.' The other letters address Count Albrecht VII. von Mansfeld. Quoting a number of Biblical sources, Ezekiel 34, Daniel 39, Matthew 3, etc., Müntzer pleads to stop the tyrannic rage and torture of the Christians calling Albrecht a martyr for the devil. Two letters are dated Frankenhausen, Freytags nach Jubilate. Anno XXV, respectively 1525 (Friday after Jubilate, Sunday after Easter), the third letter Donnerstag nach Jubilate. Anno 25 (Thursday after Jubilate). The pamphlet closes with Luther's elaborate appeal addressing the captured and revolting peasants to repent and submit to the grace of God and believe that God will lead them to the blessed peace. Text in German, Gothic script. Some wear along edges of binding with paper stickers at head of spine and lower corner of front cover, this with year and reference number, some scuffing of boards. Small library sticker on inside font cover with stamp and color exlibris of The Woodruff Collection at Emory University. Front free endpaper age toned with chips along edges, loose.

         Geographicae enarrationis libri octo Bilibaldo Pirckeymhero interprete. Annotationes Joannis de Regio Monte in errores commissos a Jacobo Angelo in translatione sua.

      Johannes Grieningerus, communibus Johannis Koberger impensis excudebat. [Imprint from colophon: recto of leaf Q8], 1525 - First map in an edition of Ptolemy to name 'America' Folio atlas (406 by 265mm), title within ornamental woodcut border, and 50 numbered woodcut maps (27 double-page maps of the ancient world, 22 double-page maps of the modern world by Lorenz Fries, and one full-page map of Lotharingia on the verso of map 46), mounted on vellum guards, most maps with descriptive text on verso enclosed within elaborate woodcut borders (said to be the work of Hans Holbein and Urs Graf), woodcut diagrams in the text, contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over oak boards, metal clasps.Collation: A-M(6), N(4), O(6), 50 numbered double-page woodcut maps a-e(6), f(4), P(6), Q(8) [Collophon]. Fourth Strassburg edition. The text was translated by Wilibald Pirckheimer, using the notes of Johannes Regiomontanus, perhaps under the editorship of Johann Huttich. The ornamental woodblock designs on the reverse of the maps are attributed to Albrecht Dürer, who also contributed the woodblock of the armillary sphere. The present edition is the second one printed by Gröninger. However, all maps are printed from the woodblocks of the first Gröninger edition of 1522.The maps are all drawn on the trapezoid projection developed by the German cartographer Nicolaus Germanus (1420-1490) in 1460. 27 are drawn according to Ptolemaic theory, and a further 23 'modern' maps have been added, which incorporate contemporary knowledge.The 'modern' section was copied by Lorenz Fries, on a reduced format, from the maps prepared by Waldseemüller for the 1513 Strassburg edition of Ptolemy, and accordingly contains updated maps of North America and the West Indies, Lorraine, Switzerland, Crete, North Africa, Southern Africa, Southern Asia and the World.To that group Fries added two entirely new maps, which were the first separately printed maps of the regions they depict: one of Southeast Asia and the East Indies, and one of China and Japan. He also added his own navigational map of the world.The 50 woodcut maps, with the exception of 'Quinta Asie Tabula', are from the same blocks as those of the 1522 edition. Map 47, is a single page on the verso of map 46. Map 50, 'Orbis typus universalis', by Lorenz Fries, is the first map in a Ptolemy in which the name 'America' is used. Maps 28, 34, 49, and 50 relate more or less to America, and are described in a note to the preceding edition. The account of the discoveries of Columbus and others is on the back of Map 28.

Such features along with decorative elements like the blue painted initials on dark read grounds and "banderoles", scrolls included in miniatures with mottoes or heraldic elements, are common throughout the Master and his workshop's oeuvre.

This is a beautiful copy, in a very nice binding of an important edition of Homer's Odyssey. This edition of The Iliad and The Odyssey by Johannes Lonitzer (Lonicer), is dedicated, with an epistle in Greek, to Philipp Melanchthon, perhaps the most influential of the Northern European Humanist scholars of the early sixteenth century. With the encouragement of Martin Luther, Melanchthon took up the Chair of Greek at the University of Wittenberg in 1518 and began his lectures on Homer in the same year. He inspired a generation of German classical scholars, including Lonitzer, to produce editions or translations of Homer. Wolfgang Köpfel was a printer in Strasbourg (Argentorato) siding with the reform movements and operating as a clandestine printer-propagandist for some of the more radical elements within the Strasbourg Reformation. His uncle, also called Wolfgang Köpfels (Latinised to Capito) was, like Lonitzer and Melanchthon a classical scholar, theologian and reformer in Strasbourg. This important edition brings together a number of significant figures from the early sixteenth century German Humanist and Reform movements. With this edition of The Odyssey is the Batrachomyomachia or the Battle of Frogs and Mice. This is a comedic parody of the Iliad, attributed to Homer, but according to Plutarch the work of Pigres of Halicarnassus. This edition also includes three biographies of Homer by Herodotus (more properly pseudo-Herodotus), Plutarch and Dio Chrysostom.

A truly lovely copy, housed in a custom-made full leather box with gilt title to spine. 139 ff. The exceedingly scarce first edition of Pomponazzi's collected works, a milestone publication of Renaissance philosophy, which constitutes the authorized "opera" of Pomponazzi and brings together for the first time the known body of writing of arguably THE most important philosopher of the Renaissance, disseminating them to a wider audience. This seminal publication, printed in the year of Pomponazzi's death, remains to this day the standard edition of and the main source of reference to the works of "The last Scholastic and the first man of the Enlightenment" (Sandy, Randall, Kristeller). It greatly influenced the dissemination of his works and thought and came to directly influence philosophical and scientific thought of centuries to come. "Pomponazzi's thought and reputation were extremely influential in the centuries after his death. Even before it was printed, his treatise "On incantations" circulated widely in manuscript among philosophers, physicians and early modern naturalists (see Zanier 1975). Due to his mortalist theory of the soul, 17th-century "free thinkers" regarded Pomponazzi as one of their own, portraying him as an atheist (see Kristeller 1968; Paganini 1985). Enlightenment thinkers of the 18th century pushed to extremes his distinction between natural reason and faith, while 19th-century positivists, such as Ernest Renan and Roberto Ardigò, saw in Pomponazzi a forerunner of their own beliefs and a champion of naturalism and empiricism." (SEP).Pietro Pomponazzi (1462-1525) was an author of both commentaries and original philosophical treatises and also as such a key figure in the Aristotelian tradition of the Renaissance. Pomponazzi stood at a crossroad in the history of Aristotelianism - he still studied the great logicians and natural philosophers of the 14th century, which his Italian humanistic colleagues had given up (focusing instead on "man" and his place in the universe), but at the same time he had a highly original approach to the teachings of Aristotle and a unique uninhibited approach to the nature of the universe; as opposed to his contemporaries, he responded philosophically to the achievements of humanism, always seeking the truth and the "naturalist" explanation. With his wide-ranging works, published together here for the first time, Pomponazzi was a fore-runner of that difficult to define critical Aristotelianism, which sought to find the true meaning of the works of Aristotle, lay them bare and develop them further, in order to find the true nature of the universe - to explain how the world functions without any preconceived notions (like the belief in Christ, etc.). "This freedom from doctrinal orthodoxy - quite rare among Renaissance Aristotelians - was one of Pomponazzi's real contributions to the progress of scientific thought. By refusing to be bound by specific position, by constant testing and doubting. Pomponazzi brought the firm conclusions of the scholastic Aristotle to a dead end. And in doing so, he opened up a whole new philosophy of nature." (Pine, p. 19). As such, Pomponazzi occupies a truly unique position in the history of Renaissance philosophy. "Pomponazzi's thought, by combining Averroism and Alexandrism, could not be squeezed into one category or the other. Indeed all such divisions were too simple when applied to him." (Pine, p. 5). With his magnificent undoctrinal works of pure thought and reason, Pomponazzi inaugurated a tradition that was to become dominating in following centuries, founding an entirely new philosophy of nature and paving the way for the acceptance of a later mathematical view of nature. "During the twelve decades or so between Pomponazzi's arrival (1484) and Galileo's departure in 1610, the learned community that Shakespeare called "fair Padua, nursery of arts", achieved a distinction in scientific and medical studies unmatched elsewhere in Europe. Thus, Pomponazzi's career in northern Italy brought him close to the most exciting advances of his time in science and medicine. In keeping with the nature of his university appointments, he approached Aristotle from a perspective quite distant from Bruni's humanism or Lefèvre's theologizing. [...] Pomponazzi's Aristotelianism developed entirely within the framework of natural philosophy". (Copenhaver & Schmitt, p. 105).

      Strasbourg: Johannes Grüninger 1525 - Wood-cut with full original colour, verso text with originally coloured decorative margins (Very Good, slightly stained in white margins, old burn hole in the upper part of the image - exactly on the spot where fire of a torch, depicted verso in decorative margin should be), 31 x 39 cm (12.2 x 15.4 inches). Early wood-cut map of France with stunning original colour. This early wood-cut map of France, with fascinanting rare to find original colour, was made by Lorenz Fries and was published in the second edition of his atlas, issued in Strassburg in 1525. Lorenz Fries: Groundbreaking Renaissance Cartographer- Lorenz Fries (c. 1485 - 1532) was an Alsatian physician and mathematician, educated at the universities of Pavia, Piacenza, Montpellier and Vienna, who collaborated with Martin Waldseemüller on a project that was never completed owing to the latter’s death. Fries was fascinated with his late friend’s cartography, particularly Waldseemüller’s great atlas, Claudii Ptolemei viri Alexandrini (Strasbourg: Johannes Schott, 1513). It featured 47 maps, of which 27 represented traditional Ptolemaic conceptions, while 20 were entirely new, modern maps. Fries worked with Johannes Grüninger, one of Waldseemüller’s publishers, to produce a reduced-sized edition of Waldseemüller’s atlas, the first edition of which was printed in Strasbourg in 1522. Importantly, Fries’s atlas included three ‘new’ maps that were not featured in Waldseemüller’s work, a navigational World map and the first printed maps of China & Japan and Southeast Asia (being the present map). The 1522 edition of Fries’s work was evidently issued in very limited numbers, as it is today exceedingly rare. In 1525, a second edition was published by Grüninger, with the same compliment of maps and an improved text written by the eminent intellectual Wilibald Pirkheimer, who worked from the notes of the legendary astronomer and mathematician Johannes Regiomontanus. After Grüninger’s death in 1531, his son Christoph sold the materials for Fries’s Ptolemy to two Lyon publishers, the brothers Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel, who published a joint edition in 1535. The Trechsels hired Michael Servetus (Villanouanus), a controversial scholar who was later burned at the stake for heresy, to rework Pirkheimer’s text. This edition of the atlas was entitled Clavdii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis Libri Octo. In 1541, moving production to the nearby town of Vienne, Gaspar Trechsel alone published an edition. While the original 1522 Grüninger woodblocks were used to print all four editions, and geographically the maps from each edition are the same, their border decorations were altered and (where applicable) verso text changed with each edition, so making the maps from each issue distinguishable. Lorenz Fries’s work had an enduring legacy, as it greatly influenced the endeavours of great cartographers such as Sebastian Münster and Giacomo Gastaldi.

         Lettera autografo di Francesco I Re di Francia. Agosto 1525 ?

      1525 ?. Lettera autografo di Francesco I Re di Francia. Agosto 1525? In-8° grande, 1 f., 16 righe con firma e data? Ben conservata. Francesco I (nato François d'Orléans; Cognac, 12 settembre 1494 - Rambouillet, 31 marzo 1547) è stato re di Francia dal 1515 alla sua morte. Era il figlio di Carlo di Valois-Angoulême (1459 - 1º gennaio 1496) e di Luisa di Savoia (11 settembre 1476 - 22 settembre 1531) e fu il primo della dinastia regale dei Valois-Angoulême, che si estinguerà con la morte del nipote Enrico III, avvenuta nel 1589. La madre, rimasta vedova, dovette provvedere all'educazione dei figli e si avvalse dell'aiuto del suo confessore, Cristoforo Numai da Forlì. Ciò, forse, spiega l'interesse che Francesco dimostrò, anche da re, per le questioni religiose. L'8 maggio 1514 Francesco sposò Claudia di Francia (1499 - 1524), figlia del re Luigi XII, della Casa di Orléans, e duchessa di Bretagna. Dato che Luigi non lasciò eredi maschi e che la lex salica rimaneva l'unico documento giuridico che regolasse le questioni di discendenza, negando alle donne la possibilità di salire al trono, alla morte di Luigi, avvenuta nel 1515, Francesco, Conte d'Angoulême, gli succedette nella reggenza di Francia. Nella corsa al potere del Sacro Romano Impero perse l'elezione alla carica imperiale (1519) in favore di Carlo V d'Asburgo, che riuscì a comprare i voti degli elettori grazie al sostegno finanziario del banchiere tedesco Jacob Fugger. Uff. pacco 3.

         Untitled [Tabula IIII Asiae] Tabula IIII Asiae

      Strassburg: Johannes Gruninger, 1525. unbound. Map. Uncolored woodcut. Sheet measures 15.25" x 20.5". This rare and early Ptolemaic woodcut map dating to 1525 depicts the region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Persian Gulf, covering Israel, Palestine or Holy Land, Syria, Jordon, Lebanon and Iraq. Includes Cyprus. This map was included in the 1525 Strasbourg edition of the Lorenz Fries' "Geographia" of Ptolemy, published by Johannes Grüninger. Verso includes Latin text and includes a key to important locations marked on the map. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the centerfold and some discolorations. Minor foxing.

Lorenz (Laurent) Fries (c.1490 - c.1531) was a physician, astrologer and geographer born in Alsace. After studying medicine and spending time at several European universities, he settled in Strasbourg in 1519, where he met published and printer Johann Grüninger. With Grüninger, he worked on a new edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", which was published in 1522 and 1525 and included woodcut maps reduced from Martin Waldseemuller's "Geographie Opus Novissima". Fries eventually had to move out of Strasbourg which marked the end of his cartographic career. He would continue to write on medicine, astrology and religion until his death in c.1531. The subsequent 1535 and 1541 edition of Fries' "Geographia" were published posthumously.

Johann Grüninger (c.1455 - c.1532) was a Swabish printer and publisher based in Strasbourg and was known at the time to be the most prolific printers in Strasbourg. He was associated with the Saint Die group of scholars formed by, amongst others, Martin Waldseemüller. After his death in 1531 or 1532, his son Christoph sold his map plates to Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel from Lyon who published the later editions of the "Geographia".

Claudius Ptolemy (90-168 CE) was a Roman geographer and mathematician living in Egypt, who compiled his knowledge and theories about the world's geography into one seminal work. Although his maps did not survive, his mathematical projections and location coordinates did. During the Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman works, "Geographia" was rediscovered by monks and based upon Ptolemy's detailed instructions, the maps were recreated. The first printed edition of "Geographia" with maps was published in Bologna in 1477. Very scarce.
