         Terra Nova.

      1541 - The "first map devoted to America to appear in an atlas" Woodcut map. The "first map devoted to America to appear in an atlas" (Burden). The map is centred on the Atlantic Ocean, and shows the new discoveries in the Americas. North and South America are joined together as one landmass (according to Deák, it is the first map to do so). South America is populated by a group of cannibals and an opossum, albeit one made to look much more ferocious than in reality. The Spanish flag is shown planted in "Isabella Insul", or Cuba, where Columbus had landed on his first expedition on behalf of the Spanish crown. Columbus is also mentioned by name in the large text in South America as the discoverer of the New World. This map first appeared in Martin Waldseemüller's 1513 edition of Ptolemy's 'Geographia'. It was revised by Laurent Fries in 1522, who added the vignettes based on the voyages of Amerigo Vespucci, some nomenclature and further detail on Columbus' voyages in the scroll beneath Hispaniola. He also changed the inscription on America from 'Terra Incognita' to 'Terra Nova'. The verso text gives more details of Columbus' discoveries and concludes with a condemnation of the use of 'America' as the European name for the new continent, arguing that Columbus was there first. In fact, Waldseemüller himself had popularised the name 'America' through his world map, produced to accompany the 'Cosmographia introductio', published in collaboration with Matthias Ringmann and Jean Basin de Sendacour in 1507. It contains the first printed instance of the name 'America' being applied to the discoveries over the Atlantic: "The fourth part of the earth, we have decided to call Amerige, the land of Amerigo we might even say, or America because it was discovered by Amerigo". Waldseemüller himself was reluctant to identify America as a continent, and would never use the name America again. When he published his edition of Ptolemy in Strasbourg in 1513, he labelled South America "Terra Incognita" on his version of this map. However, nearly every significant mapmaker for the next quarter of a century relied on his work, popularising his geography and terminology. 1513 edition: Deák, Picturing America 5; Harrisse 210; Karrow, pp. 563-83; Sabin 66478.

The first staple contract, which set out the privileges to be enjoyed by Scottish traders, was drawn up in 1541. The introduction of the work is an historical account of the staple written by Charles Stewart, who was at that time the deputy conservator at London. The main text is written by James Yair, a minister of the Scottish Church in Veere (Campvere). Veere was Scotland's staple port from 1541 until 1799. Scottish merchants could export certain goods such as wool, coal, tiles, arms and ammunition to Veere without paying customs. Veere was a prosperous trading city during the 17th and 18th centuries.With the armorial book plate John Whitefoord Mackenzie (1794-1884), whose library was auctioned in 1886.

         Constantini Caesaris selectarum praeceptionum de agricultura libri viginti. Iano Cornario Medico interprete.

      Lyon, (Lugduni), Apud Seb. Gryphium, 1541. - 8vo. 349;(15 index),(2 blank) p. 18th century calf 16 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 1,422; Graesse 3,53; Ebert 8337; Not in Brunet) (Details: Back gilt, and with 3 raised bands. Boards with tripple fillet borders, and gilt floral ornaments at the corners. Woodcut printer's mark of Sebastianus Gryphius on the title, depicting a griffin, which mythological animal symbolizes courage, diligence, watchfulness, and rapidity of execution, used as a pun of his family name Gryph or Greif. From the claws of this creature hangs a big rectangular stone, symbolizing Constancy, beneath which hangs a winged globe, symbolizing Fortune. The motto is 'Virtute duce / comite fortuna', 'Virtue thy leader, fortune thy comrade', is a quote from a letter of Cicero to Plancus (Epistulae ad Familiares, liber X,3). Printed completely in italics) (Condition: Binding worn at the extremes. Boards slightly and superficially damaged. The right upper corner of the first 27 and the last 12 leaves repaired. A tear in the margin of the second leaf has been repaired skilfully and almost invisibly. Stains at the upper margin in the beginning, right margin slightly waterstained throughout. Name on the title) (Note: Famine (with the plague) was a great problem in France during the first half of the 16th century. There were serious food shortages and outbreaks of disease in the early 1520th. This scourge reached its peak in the crisis of 1545/46 which was perhaps the most terrible year in the history of 16th century Paris. Many thousands died of hunger. This period is marked by a dramatic fall in living standards. The gravity of the situation began to be reflected in the medical and agricultural literature of that time: how to avoid disease and preserve health in times of dearth on a poor diet of gruel, bread, broth and beer. The French humanist schoolmaster Robert Breton, whose ideas were heavily coloured by classical influences, published in 1539 his 'Agriculturae encomium', in which he emphasized the need to combine theoretical and practical learning in agriculture. 'The food produced in the countryside, he pointed out, was absolutely essential to the existence of the towns and the state itself'. (H. Heller, Labour, science and technology in France, Cambr. 1996, p. 66) Food, especially grain, was not only scarce because of the ignorance and poverty of the peasantry, but also because of warfare. Towards the middle of this century the provision of an adequate food supply became urgent. 'Beyond assuring the subsistence of the population, it was critical to maintaining the momentum of the burgeoning manufacturing sector of the economy. Sustaining profit margins in industry depended on controlling wages. Relatively low wages were only possible if the costs of grain (.) could be contained. As a result, one notes a growing preoccupation with agriculture among humanist authors'. (H. Heller, p. 65) § The basis for the reform of European agriculture was laid by the works of three Roman gentlemen-farmers and landowners Cato, Varro and Columella, and Constantinus Caesar's Geoponica. Between 1529 and 1550 eight Latin editions of the works of Cato, Varro, Columella and Palladius were published in Paris and Lyon. Palladius (1551) and Columella (1551, 1558) were also translated into French. The first Latin translation of the Geoponica was published in Basel by Froben & Episcopius in 1538, one year before the Greek 'editio princeps'. Hoffmann records between 1538 and 1550 six issues of the Latin translation, four or more of French translations, and three of Italian translations. The first Latin translation of the Geoponica was made from the same manuscript as the Greek 'editio princeps' by the German 'medicus physicus' Janus Cornar(i)us, or 'Johann Haynpol', 'Hagenbut' or 'Hanbut', 1500-1558. In the 'Praefatio' Cornarius remarks concerning the importance of his translation that it helps to understand and restore innumerable passages in Cato, Varro, Columella, Palladius, and even Pliny Maior,

         Indiæ Tabula Moderna.

      1541 - Vienne, Gaspar Trechsel, 1541. Woodcut, printed area 320 x 440mm. Southern Asia, with Eastern Arabia and the Persian Gulf to the South China Sea. Of interest is the transferral of Taprobana to the coast of the Malay Peninsula, and the appearance of Indo-China as a tiny peninsula marked 'fulicandora'. Over India is a depiction of 'suttee', Hindu widow-burning; however Fries has added a horned devil to add to the titillation. This is the last issue of Fries' reduction of Wäldseemüller's map of 1513, prepared not for a Ptolemy edition 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'. TIBBETTS: Arabia in Early Maps, 17.

Rare first and only edition of Rhegius' exposition of Psalm 52. As a way of training Protestant clergy, Rhegius regularly lectured on the Bible on weekdays, showing how he himself put his theory into practice. He seemed to have had a marked preference for the Old Testament, at least concerning the sermons and lectures that he selected for publication. In his exposition of Psalm 52, Rhegius encouraged and comforted believers and colleagues who are threatened by Satan, particularly in the person of Catholic rulers like Henry II of Wolfenbüttel. They are urged to praise God, just like David did, even though Doeg did slay the priests in Silo (1 Samuel 22). Rhegius' exposition of Psalm 52 was published within a few months after his death and is preceded by a foreword by Martin Luther. - Lower outer corner of most leaves slightly stained and one leaf with a few pen underlinings.

Full antique-style speckled calf, boards paneled in blind. Contrasting tan morocco lettering piece, gilt, gilt date at base of spine. Early red ruling throughout. Some damp-staining. Very occasional text marks. Some worming to leaves q5-N8, mostly marginal but clipping some sidenotes/ occasional letters of text. Edited by Johannes Benedictus of the Paris School of Theology in 16th C attempts to produce more accurate Bible translations. First complete edition printed by Simon Colline's in Nov. 1541. Fine woodcut initial letters; NT single column. No verse divisions (first used in 1546), but extensive marginal notes showing where the Latin differs from Hebrew and Greek originals, or where a more literal rendering required notice. Unpopular with Catholic Church, presumably striking of humanist revisionism in common with many Northern European translations, all editions edited by Benedictus were placed on the 'Index Expurgatorius'.

         De re vestiaria libellus, ex Bayfio excerptus: addita vulgaris linguae interpretatione, in adolescentulorum gratiam atque utilitatem. Secunda edition.

      ex officina Roberti Stephani typographi regii (Parisiis: excudebat Rob. Stephanus Hebraicarum et Latinarum literarum typographus regius, 1541 Id. April.), Parisiis - 8vo (170x108 mm), modern printed paper binding; pp. 68, [12]. Woodcut mark on t.-p. This children’s book deals with ancient Roman dress (from hats to shoes, incl. carpets, etc). It was edited by Charles Estienne (whose name is in the preface); at that time, he was tutor of J.A. de Baif, Lazare's son. Lazare de Baïf (1496–1547) was a French diplomat and humanist. His natural son, Jean-Antoine de Baïf, was born in Venice, while Lazare was French ambassador there. He published a translation of the Electra of Sophocles in 1537, and afterwards a version of the Hecuba. He was an elegant writer of Latin verse, and is commended by Joachim du Bellay as having introduced certain valuable words into the French language. Charles Estienne (1504–1564) was an early exponent of the science of anatomy in France. Charles was a younger brother of Robert Estienne I, the famous printer, and son to Henri, who Latinized the family name as Stephanus. He married Geneviève de Berly. After the usual humanistic training he studied medicine, and took his doctor's degree at Paris. He was for a time tutor to Jean-Antoine de Baïf, the future poet. References: IT\ICCU\BVEE\013094.

         Anatomiae, hoc est, corporis humani dissectionis pars prior [all published]. [ Anatomia Porci, ex traditione Cophonis; Anatomia Infantis, ex Gabriele de Zerbis]; [Bound with:] Anatomia Mundini, ad vetustissimorum, erundemque aliquot manu scriptorumm, codicum fidem collata, iustoq ue suo ordini restituta. Per Joannem Dryandrum ...

      Marburg; Marburg: Eucharius Gervicornus; Christian Egenolph, 1537; [1541]. A very attractive sammelband, comprising two rare illustrated works of pre-Vesalian anatomy, in their original untouched vellum binding: the enlarged second edition of Dryander's Anatomia capitis humani (1536), the first significant analysis of the anatomy of the head, united with his edition of the Anathomia of Mundinus, known as the "restorer of anatomy" for his innovative dissection practice. The illustrations are, with those of Berengario, the best that were published before Vesalius' Fabrica in 1543 (Lind, p. 297). The 1536 work, a thin quarto of 14 leaves containing 11 woodcut illustrations of the anatomy of the head, is of extreme rarity (only two copies at American/British auctions since the 19th century; neither Cushing, Osler nor Waller owned a copy). It was probably published in a small edition because Dryander intended it to serve as the preliminary to a full-scale illustrated anatomy, but the project was abandoned after publishing the first part, the present Anatomiae (hence pars prior). This copy is remarkable for having the folding table, which is almost always lacking (it is apparently lacking from the Wellcome and Waller copies, for example). The second work is the finest illustrated edition of the first book devoted to anatomy (and the first to incorporate new knowledge gained since antiquity). His illustrations, based on actual dissection, whether his own or others currently in circulation, make "Dryander's illustrated anatomical works ... an important milestone of anatomical illustration" (Persaud). It is particularly appropriate to find these two works bound together, because Dryander began his translation of Mundinus at the end of the Anatomiae, so the second work could be viewed as a continuation of the first. Like many humanist scholars of the period, Eichmann used a Hellenized version of his name, both Dryander and Eichmann translating as 'oak-man'. His likeness, later engraved by Thomas de Bry, shows him holding a small oak leaf by way of identification. ABPC/RBH record only a handful of copies of each work in the last 30 years: I. Christie's 2004 (lacking folding table) $9560; Christie's 1998 (Norman copy, $31050); Christie's 1988 ($11758); Sotheby's 1982 (lacking table, $5390); Swann 1979 ($8800). II. Jeschke 2011 (€7440); Swann 2007 ($7800); Christie's 2005 ($18000); Sotheby's 1990 ($2250); Christie's 1988 (£1600); Swann 1979 ($6800). Provenance: Contemporary ownership inscription on title of first work (Joseph Longis); rear paste-down with the marking of Blondelet, and with his preferred custom morocco box by Duval. "Jean Blondelet was probably the greatest, but least known, French collector of rare medical and scientific books in the 20th century" (Jeremy Norman). "Johannes Eichmann was born on June 27, 1500, in the small town of Wetter, north of Marburg in upper Hesse, Germany. The son of a wealthy burgher, he received his early education in a local school from the prominent theologian Johannes Poenilius. In 1518, he entered the University of Erfurt, where he received his degree under Dr. Matthew Moyer. Remaining at the university, he joined the College of St. Mary's Chapel to study under the physician Euricius Cordus. Cordus, the father of the eminent botanist Valerius Cordus (1515-44), was responsible for the education of the medical students at the university. Since he knew Eichmann's family in Wetter, he gave particular attention to Eichmann's early studies. Under his tutelage, Eichmann received his Master of Arts degree; he enjoyed anatomy and mathematics, but did well enough in medicine to earn a reputation eclipsing his teacher. "In 1524, Eichmann left the university: the pressures of the Reformation and the start of a plague forced him to flee to Bourges. According to Cordus, the university life had deteriorated: 'Priests and monks are getting married all the time. Our university is in decay, the licentiousness of the students is almost as great as the licentiousness of the soldiers in their field camps.' The plague followed him to Bourges, and sometime in 1527 or 1528, he moved to Paris to continue his medical studies. "It was during this period that the Renaissance emphasis on medical humanism was fostered by European universities, including those at Bologna, Padua and Paris. Galen's teachings, recently translated by physicians and botanists, ... were endorsed by Eichmann's teacher, Johannes Guenther (1505-74), who arrived at Paris at approximately the same time as Eichmann. Despite the stimulus of this classical scholarship, the educational milieu of medieval scholasticism still supported a dogmatic approach to learning and a blind devotion to Galenic tradition ... The dissection of human corpses had been established as a formal part of the medical studies in Paris and by 1530 the University was crowded with anatomists. Although crude, the public dissections were held three or four times a year. Nonstop, for obvious reasons, the professor of medicine supervised the hurried labors of a barber or surgeon with an "ostensor" pointing out the relevant structures. These older, more formal, techniques were challenged by the physician-anatomists such as Jacopo Berengario da Carpi (ca. 1460-1530), who recommended "hands on" dissection by the professor with attention to personal observation of anatomical detail. "Once the dissection was accomplished, the medical student had to return to non-illustrated texts for reference. For almost 200 years, Pietro d'Abano (1250-1316), Mondino de' Luzzi (Mundinus, d. 1326), Alessandro Achillini (1463-1512), Nicolo Massa (1499-1569), and Gabriele Zerbi (1468-1505) wrote extensively on human anatomy, even correcting Galen on minor points, without the aid of diagrams. Although several graphic texts had been published, the drawings were crude and followed Galenic theory with scholastic diligence. In 1518, Phryesen published the Spiegel der Artzny, which contained the earliest serial figures of brain dissection without descriptions. In 1523, Berengario published his Isagogae breves depicting several cross-sections of the brain. Unfortunately, the detail of the plates was inadequate, and the plates were not explained in the text. As a result of these ambiguous scholastic traditions, Eichmann learned his anatomy at a particularly contentious time. The confrontation of dogmatic reliance on Galenic anatomy and inadequate pictorial definition with a new emphasis on detailed observation during dissection led to academic confusion and bitter debate. "Eichmann left Paris in 1534 and obtained his degree in medicine at Mainz. The archbishop of Trier proclaimed him the royal doctor of Koblenz and Trier, and in 1535 he wrote his first non-medical text. Before Eichmann accepted the position at Trier, the chancellor of Prince Philip of Hessen asked him to accept the chairmanship of the department of medicine at the University of Marburg. Founded in 1527 by Philip, the Landgrave of Hesse, it was the first Protestant university; consequently, the position was important ... Although Eichmann received the faculty endorsement, the position was given to Johannes Meckbach, a friend of Eichmann's while he was at Erfurt. By June of 1535, however, the position was open again, and he was hired at a considerable salary of 95 florins a year. Eichmann held his first lecture in October of that year ... Although the university promulgated educational guidelines, which Eichmann followed, he concentrated on Galen's teachings, the Hippocratic aphorisms, and Avicenna's Canon ... "Dryander spent the rest of his life at the University of Marburg. Although he performed only two more dissections, in 1539 and 1558, he was a popular teacher, and graduated at least seven physicians under his personal guidance by 1546." I. "Although planning for a more comprehensive book involving the entire human anatomy, Eichmann gave drawings on the head and neck to his engraver, Georg Thomas. Thomas, a student from the university who graduated in 1534, was a local artist, sculptor and engraver. He spent most of his career in Marburg painting for the university or local religious orders. It is apparent that Thomas was responsible for all the drawings, although the quality varied from plate to plate. The first edition entitled Anatomia capitis humani was published by Eucharius Cervicornus Agrippina at Marburg in September of 1536. The second text, published in June 1537, contains a longer introduction, additional detail in the illustrations, and figures representing the thorax, heart and inflated lungs ... Eichmann included translations of Copho's Anatomia Porci [first printed in Lyon in 1523] and Gabriele Zerbi's De Generatione Embrionis. These sections comprise only 6 pages of the text and probably represented Eichmann's initial effort to publish a comprehensive anatomic text. "The dedicatory material profiled Eichmann as a physician devoted to anatomy as a practical science. He praised his two previous successors and thanked Prince Philip for "having been inflamed with an unbelievable love for his Academy of Marburg". As a prelude to a later work, Eichmann (now using the Latinized and more eloquent name of Dryander) wrote that he had drawn sketches of his dissections for the benefit of the medical students. The text included a letter to the Prince's Chancellor, John Hecuse, dedicating the work to him. Following the dedication, a poem by Reinhardt Hadamarius compared the head to a sphere similar to the "ball of the heavens ... just as heaven contains the foundation of all knowledge, the head (sphere) is the dwelling for human knowledge. Dryander complimented the works of Hippocrates, Galen, Avicenna and Cornarius, but "as far as I am concerned, everyone may teach and learn in his own way." A student of medicine, however, had to employ a "most exact regard for anatomy", for the "whole business of medicine seems to rest on anatomy as a base" ... "The first four illustrations are depicted with the layers of the skin and dura. In the first diagram, a cord was placed around the shaved scalp marking the limits of the skin incision and the scalp dissection. Dryander wrote that the circular saw should cut the skull at the level of the cord. The instruments at the bottom of the diagram were variously labeled "razors, circular saws, pincers, forceps, and stylets. In this illustration, he included Celsus' description of the head and Avicenna's description of the layers of the scalp. The second diagram outlined the thicker skin "from which the brain comes forth", and the pericranium, which was attached to the dura mater through the skull and responsible for the sensations of the head. The "seams" (sutures) of the head are described ... The third illustration outlined the surface of the brain after removal of the skull with the circular saw. The dura mater and the left, right and middle pathways of the brain are shown. Dryander wrote that the substance of the brain was larger in humans than in any other animal of similar structure, which explained the warmer heart, which had to cool the brain. The last illustration described the dura mater and pia mater with the left, right and dividing line of the brain. He wrote that the brain was divided into forward and rear sections; the forward was divided into left and right halves by the dura ... "The fifth illustration was curious. Dryander, using a razor, cut through the left side of the brain to the ventricles. The stripped dura mater, and the intact pia mater, were illustrated, while on the right half, the substance of the brain appeared like "small clouds." The remaining section was porrly described ... Here were multiple cavities filled with air which contributed to the sense of smell ... The sixth illustration outlined the lateral ventricles, curved in the manner of a "newborn moon" about three fingers deep to the surface. Dryander stated that on both sides around the base of the ventricles, there was a skin-like reddish substance called "the worm" which was composed of arteries and veins and was responsible for opening and closing the ventricles. Below these "worms" there was a certain part of the brain which resembled buttocks and terminated in the ventricle ... Then he described a meeting of the two forward areas of the brain in the third ventricle. Breath, processed in the forward ventricle, was transferred to the third ventricle to produce memory. The forward section of the brain was devoted to thinking, the middle to reasoning, and the posterior section to memory. "The seventh illustration outlined the tentorium, which had been stripped off ... The torculae was described as the "wine press of Avicenna." Around the letter D he described "breast-shaped pieces of flesh" (olfactory bulbs?) which may be associated with smell. Cranial nerves numbered I and II are called optic, while III, IV and V were associated with the senses, although not specifically described ... The optic nerves around the section labeled D came from the forward ventricles, joined together (optic chiasm), and were pulled apart to enter the eyes. Consequently, when one eye was closed, the entire "spirit" was carried over to the other. The ninth illustration depicted the neck dissection, and the tenth, eleventh and twelfth diagrams illustrated the base of the skull, jaw and full head from the front and back ... "The final illustration was the most interesting. The figure, without legend, was placed in the dedication but explained in the final section. It is a full face to the left with the impressive title "The total representation of all parts of the human head with their explanation." Turner was the first to note that this figure was a copy of Hundt's earlier work ... The anterior ventricles represented the sensus communis, the middle ventricle that of cogitative, and the posterior ventricle memorativa. The cranial sutures overlapped the three ventricles and the scalp, pericranium, dura mater and pia mater were stripped along the side. The "rete mirabile" was described for the first time in the text. Vision, hearing, and smell were shown with indicator lines drawn from these sense organs to the appropriate ventricle by means of "nerves and muscles". Dryander's final figure represented an attempt to reconcile hundreds of years of medieval physiology with his own anatomic observation. "Following the sections of Copho's Anatomia Porci and Zerbi's De Generatione, Dryander began his commentary on anatomy according to Mundinus. Four more plates described the thorax, inflated lungs, heart and pericardium, and thoracic cage. A poem by Hadamarius and an insert completed the text" (Hanigan et al). II. The first edition of Mondino's anatomy was published at Padua ca. 1475 (only three copies known) and most later editions are not illustrated, or only illustrated very sparsely. "The first outstanding anatomist worthy of the name ... the Anathomia of Mondino was the most used anatomical text up to the end of the sixteenth century, probably because it contained the most important technical indications in brief and concise form" (Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, pp. 341-3). "Mondino's chief work is his compendium of anatomy, Anatomia Mundi, completed in 1316, which made him, in Castiglione's words, 'the first outstanding anatomist worthy of the name.' Mondino's book dominated anatomy for over two hundred years. The major reason for Mondino's great popularity was the simplicity, conciseness, and systematic arrangement of his book, which is divided into six parts: (1) an introduction to the whole body and a discussion of authorities; (2) the natural members including the liver, spleen, and other organs in the abdominal cavity; (3) the generative members; (4) the spiritual members, the heart, lungs, trachea, esophagus, and other organs of the thoracic cavity up to the mouth; (5) the animal members of the skull, brain, eyes, ears; and (6) the peripheral parts, bones, spinal column, extremities. This organization was not the result of any philosophical approach to the subject but rather derived from the necessity of dissecting the most perishable organs first ... "Mondino should be regarded as the restorer of anatomy if only because his popular textbook and his experimental teaching were instrumental in preparing the revival of the subject. His text was the first book written on anatomy during the Middle Ages that was based on the dissection of the human cadaver; his efforts consolidated anatomy as a part of the medical program at Bologna and encouraged further study. His book also dominated the teaching of anatomy, and no real improvements were made upon it until 1521, when Berengario da Carpi wrote his famous commentary on Mondino" (DSB IX, pp. 468-9). "Mondino's book soon became a classic text; he was venerated soon after his death as a divine master and anyone who was found differing from his book was regarded as monstrous. For three centuries the lecturers on anatomy were required to use his book in their teaching, as may be seen in the statutes of many medical schools" (Castiglioni, pp. 344-5). "Dryander's notoriety as a consummate plagiarist was created in the years following the publication of the Anatomiae pars prior. In 1537, his publisher, Christian Egenolph, moved to Frankfurt, which had developed into one of the major publishing centers in Europe. In 1541, the Anatomia Mundini was published: this was the translation of the anatomical text of Mundinus which Dryander had anticipated in the Anatomiae pars prior. Although the text contained his earlier prints, it also used illustrations from Berengario, Phryesen and Versalius' Tabulae sex ... Within the following year, Dryander wrote to Vesalius requesting his opinion concerning a Hippocratic aphorism. This professional contact and Dryander's favourable standing led Vesalius in 1543 to include his name in the first edition of the Fabrica as a prominent anatomist, even though he ridiculed Dryander's use of a circular saw for opening the skull ... "not round as certain mathematicians illustrate in their books on anatomy." In a letter to his publisher, Oporinus, prior to the printing of the Fabrica, Vesalius chastised an unknown anatomist, who was "the slave of the sordid printer at Marburg and Frankfurt", for plagiarizing the plates of the Tabulae sex. As Vesalius later admitted, he was unaware at the time of the printing of the Fabrica that Dryander was responsible for the plagiarism. Sometime after this, Vesalius examined a letter written by Dryander to Dr. Eck, a mutual friend in Frankfurt, and learned that Dryander had criticized him for belittling Guenther, their former teacher at Paris. In 1555, Vesalius irrevocably discredited Dryander by omitting his name from the second edition of the Fabrica ... "Although they may have used woodcuts without the author's permission, Dryander and his publisher were not isolated practitioners of the art ... Even Vesalius' illustrations of the heart and pericardium are similar in conception to Dryander's and the "hourglass" and "inevitable fatum" seen in the Anatomiae pars prior were used in the Fabrica. Muddied by the turbulent publishing waters of the early 16th century, Vesalius' lasting charge of plagiarism was not completely one-sided" (Hanigan et al). I.

         Tabula Moderna Secundae Partis Aphricae

      [Vienne, 1541] - Woodcut with hand colour 430 x 312 mm An attractive example of Lorenz Fries' reduced edition of Waldseemüller's seminal 1513 woodcut map of southern Africa, this example from a later printing of the 1541 fourth edition of Fries' Ptolemaic Atlas, with text by Michael Servetus. Waldseemüller's original was the very first separate map of southern Africa to be published, depicting the discoveries of the Portuguese at the beginning of the sixteenth century, and has come to be recognised as one of the author's most important contributions to the history of cartography. Fries' map was first published in Strasbourg by Johann Gruninger in 1522, and while retaining Waldseemüller's cartography, embellishes his design with the addition of three enthroned African Kings, a pair of serpentine dragons and a basilisk, an elephant, and, most distinctively, a large portrait of the Portuguese King Emanuel riding a sea monster in the bottom right corner, in acknowledgement of the map's Portuguese sources. Apart from these fantastical additions, the centre of the African continent is largely devoid of detail, with only the putative Mountains of the Moon and the source of the Nile listed. By contrast, the coastline is very well detailed, with numerous place-names reflecting the increase in maritime interest in the area by the European kingdoms. Fries' maps were published in four different editions, by Gruninger in Strasbourg in 1522 and 1525, and, following Fries' death in 1532, by Johann Trechsel in Lyon and Vienne in 1535 and 1541. The Trechsel editions featured text by the Spanish humanist, Michael Servetus, writing in this case under the name Villanovus. Unfortunately for Servetus, his theological treatises drew negative attention from Protestant and Catholic corners alike, and in 1553 he was found guilty of heresy and burned at the stake, and this put paid to any future editions of Fries' atlas. The woodcut borders on the versos of Gruninger and Trechsel's editions are traditionally attributed to Hans Holbien and Durer respectively. The current example is something of an anomaly, as its lack of a title above the map block is consistent with earlier impressions, though the fact that the block has a prominent crack in the bottom right corner suggests it can only be a later impression from the final 1541 fourth edition printed in Vienne. Lorenz Fries (c.1490-1532) was born in the Alsace region and studied variously at the universities in Pavia, Vienna, Piacenza and Montpellier. After completing his studies, Fries set himself up as a physician in Alsace, and briefly in Switzerland, before finally settling in Strasbourg in 1519, by which point he had published several medical texts. It was in Strasbourg that Fries meet Johann Gruniger, an associate of the St. Die group of scholars who included Martin Waldseemüller. From 1520 to 1525 Fries worked with Gruniger as his cartographic editor, producing numerous reduced woodblock maps using the vast material of Waldseemüller's 1513 Ptolemaic Atlas. Martin Waldseemüller (11th September, 1470 - 16th March, 1520) was a German author, cartographer, and publisher, and one of the most significant figures in the history of cartography. His most celebrated achievement was the publication in 1507 of his Universalis Cosmographia, a monumental twelve-panel map of the world making use of the discoveries of Columbus and Vespucci, and being the first recorded use of the title 'America' to describe the New World. In addition to this, Waldseemuller's appendix to his Ptolemaic atlas featured some of the very first individual maps of European discoveries in the New World, East Indies, and Western and Southern Africa.

His close connection to the classical humanists in François I's circle has led some to speculate that the fine woocuts herein came from the worshop of Geoffroy Tory.

         Tabula Europae IX. Thraciae Civitates.

      Henri Petri, Basilea, 1541 - 1545. Carta geografica tratta dalla "Geographia Universalis Vetus et Nova Complectens", edita da H. Petri (realizzata a cura di B. Pirckheimer, Tip. H. Petrum). Incisione su legno, cm 31 x 40 circa (il foglio poiché non è visibile la battuta della lastra). Tavola tolemaica in posizione trapezoidale, inserita nella "Geographia" di Tolomeo e ripresa nell'edizione dello stesso Munster e in alcune edizioni della "Geographia" di Strabone. Titolo in alto, al centro, extramargine, "Tabula Europae IX"; al verso, in grande riquadro riccamente incorniciato da putti alati e festoni, il titolo "Nona Europae Tabula" e la numerazione 11 della pagina, testo latino; margine graduato su tutto il perimetro, senza scale grafiche e senza reticolato. Questa carta fu stampata nel 1541, 1542 e 1545; probabilmente poi nel 1552 e nel 1571; tutte le edizioni furono realizzate a Basilea. Alla sinistra del foglio, in basso, in piccolo riquadro, "Urbes Mysie Superioris", in un secondo piccolo riquadro, a fianco del primo, più basso e più centrale, "Civitates Daciae", alla metà del foglio, sulla destra, in piccolo riquadro "Thraciae Civitates". L'orografia della tavola è rappresentata da coni di talpa (spesso a doppia sommità e con il tratteggio a sinistra), l'idrografia con una doppia riga a decorso arbitrario, la superficie dei mari è tratteggiata; i centri sono indicati con casette; vi sono alcuni limiti territoriali. Molti sono gli errori relativi al territorio. Sebastian Münster (1488 - 1552) è stato uno dei più importanti cartografi tedeschi del secolo XVI. La sua Cosmographia, edita a Basilea nel 1544, rappresenta la prima descrizione tedesca del mondo intero e l'opera principale, dopo la "Cronaca di Norimberga" del 1493, nella rinascita degli studi geografici del XVI secolo in Europa. Titolo e concetto si riallaciano all'opera di Tolomeo, con lo scopo di descrivere tutto il mondo, anche l'America appena scoperta. Münster aveva visitato diversi dei luoghi descritti durante i suoi viaggi, per altri dovette ricorrere a fonti di seconda mano che raccoglieva assiduamente. La "Cosmographia" conteneva non solo le ultime mappe e vedute di tutte le città più famose, ma anche una serie di notizie enciclopediche di dettagli relative al mondo conosciuto e sconosciuto. Dopo la sua morte nel 1552, il figlio Henri Petri continuò la pubblicazione dell'opera. Complessivamente, sono apparse circa 40 edizioni della Cosmographia tra il 1544 e il 1628. Foglio in bella impressione e in buono stato di conservazione.

         Lexicon Graecolatinum, cui ad summum locupletato etiam Etymologiae vocum necessariarum omnium accesserunt. Edited by Valentinus Curio and Pierre Gilles

      Woodcut illustrated border by Hans Holbein on title & printer's device on verso of final leaf (otherwise blank). Greek & roman text in parallel columns. [440] leaves. Thick small folio (336 x 216 mm.), cont. German blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards (light marginal dampstaining, heavier at end with some weakness to final leaves; some spotting & light browning), one (of two) clasps. Basel: Johann Walder, 1541. Second edition of the Greek-Latin dictionary by Conrad Gesner (1516-67), commissioned by his friend, the Basel publisher Johann Walder. First printed in 1537, it was is Gesner's first publication, compiled from Pierre Gilles' Lexicon graecolatinum and other sources. Walder encouraged the 21-year-old scholar to prepare this compilation, and, although the first edition appeared anonymously, this work founded Gesner's fame as a great universal scholar, who later concentrated on scientific studies of botany and zoology, as well as bibliography. The fine woodcut border title by Holbein is an allegorical depiction of the path of life following the description by the ancient philosopher Cebes. Vecellio Fore-edge Painting: Two full-length figures of a Greek and Latin scholar stand in conversation before an arched window. The title is lettered in Greek vertically along the whole fore edge and in Latin horizontally below the lower (missing) clasp. The painted decoration is the work of Cesare Vecellio (1521-1601), a cousin and pupil of Titian, in whose studio Vecellio worked until Titian's death. Among Vecellio's major paintings is the altarpiece at Belluno Cathedral. In addition to the painted fore-edges executed for the Pillones, Vecellio also painted a room in the Palazzo Pillone with the Four Seasons and the Rape of the Sabines. In his famous book on costume and manners, De gli habiti antichi et moderni (Venice: 1590), Vecellio mentions the library and other collections of the Pillone family as well as their generous hospitality. For his imagery, Vecellio took each book's author or content, so there are a series of author portraits, as here, or scenes, maps and views. 172 volumes were decorated in this way, 154 with fore-edges painted by Vecellio and 21 with original drawings on their vellum covers by him and other artists. Provenance: 1. Bonaccorso Grino (d. 1553), binding; kinsman by marriage to 2. Odorico Pillone (1503-1593), Belluno; fore-edges. 3. Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), Armitage Bridge, Yorkshire; bookplate; sold by his heirs in 1957 to 4. Pierre Berès (1913-2008), Paris. The Pillone Library has long been celebrated. Noted already in the 16th century as a library of "molti e diversi libri," it is celebrated among bibliophiles today for the remarkable painted decoration of its fore-edges and as a rare survival up to the modern day of a Renaissance library. The Pillone family, originally of Val Cadore, was prominent in the civic history of Belluno. Their library at Villa Casteldardo outside Belluno was primarily formed by the father and son, Antonio (1464-1533), and Odorico (1503-94), the former a soldier and diplomat, the latter a learned jurist. In the 1580s Odorico Pillone (or possibly his son Giorgio) commissioned Vecellio to decorate the fore-edges of a substantial portion of the best books in the library with paintings related to the contents. The 172 volumes decorated by Vecellio have had a remarkably stable existence over the next four centuries, which accounts in large measure for their almost uniformly excellent state of preservation. They remained together with other family collections until 1874 when the library was sold to the Venetian antiquarian Paolo Maresio Bazolle. The decorated volumes were then bought en bloc by the Yorkshire baronet Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), and remained in his family until they were acquired and finally dispersed by Pierre Berès in 1957. Thanks to their unusual decoration and to the fact that the library remained intact until the 1950s, all of the Pillone books have been preserved in their original bindings. Binding: Contemporary south German (perhaps Munich) pigskin over inner bevelled wooden boards, sides panelled with roll-tools and stamps, spine with single flower-head in compartments. Originally two fore-edge clasps (one missing). This is one of the 59 books that Hobson calls "an unexpected element in the collection" (p. 34). Most of these were printed in Germany, some in France, only one in Italy. All are in German blind-stamped calf or pigskin bindings as the present copy. Odorico Pillone probably acquired these books, by gift, purchase or bequest, from his relation Giovanni Grino, who had inherited the collection from his father Bonaccorso Grino (Hobson, p. 36). ❧ Berès, Bibliothèque Pillone, 112.

         L’Ascensione di Cristo

      1541 - Bulino, 1541, datato in lastra in basso a destra 'Tomasius Barlachis / 1541', e firmato a sinistra, con il monogramma NB.F, sotto l’iscrizione 'RA.VR. / INVENT. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, con il monogramma dell’incisore NB.F e avanti l’indirizzo di Lafrery. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata la rame, minime peghe di carta visibili al cerso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La scena deriva da un disegno di Raffaello per uno degli Arazzi della Scuola Nuova, con scene della Vita di Gesù, disegnate per le Stanze del Concistoro. Opera rara in questa qualità di tiratura. Engraving, 1541, lettered at lower left 'RA.VR. / INVENT / NB.F', at right 'Tomasius Barlachis / 1541'. After Raphael. First state, of three, with the monogram NBF and before the address of 'Ant. Lafrerij'. A great impression, printed with tone on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the paltemark, light paper folds on verso, otherwise very good conditions. Bartsch thought it was after one of the Vatican tapestries. The composition derives from a cartoon attributed to Raphael for the Arazzi della Scuola Nuova, with scenes from the life of Christ, designed for the rooms of the Concistorio. Tommaso Barlacchi issued three engravings by Beatrizet: Joseph Explaining his Dreams to His Brothers; Ascension, and Christ in Limbo. Very rare.

      Vienne 1541 - "Carta pubblicata nella seconda edizione di Lione, in effetti stampata a Vienne nel Delfinato, nel 1541, della "Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae Enarrationis Libri octo " di Laurent Fries. La prima edizione della Geographia di Laurent Fries fu pubblicata a Strasburgo nel 1522, con le carte che furono copiate e nuovamente incise da quelle di Martin Waldseemülle dell'edizione di Tolomeo del 1520 e testo a cura di Pirckheimer. Nel 1525 viene stampata una seconda edizione a Strasburgo. Alla scomparsa del Fries e del Gruninger, le matrici furono acquistate dai fratelli Melchior e Gaspar Treschel che ne stampano una terza edizione a Lione nel 1535. Per il testo i due editori si servirono della supervisione di Michael Servetus, che curò la revisione del testo del Pirckheimer. Infine, nel 1541, Gaspare Treechsel pubblica a Vienne, nel Delfinato, questa quarta edizione, sempre con testo di Serveto. In questa edizione, rispetto alla prima di Strasburgo del 1522, il testo subì numerose modifiche, correzioni e aggiunte, ma i legni non furono modificati. L'unica variazione relativa a questa tavola è l'impaginato: il titolo qui è stampato in caratteri tipografici, quindi scompare il cartiglio con il titolo; inoltre, il verso della carta è privo di testo. Particolare curioso, l'Etna è rappresentato in attività col disegno della fiamma. Xilografia, in ottimo stato di conservazione." "An early woodcut Ptolemaic map of Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily, and southern Italy. With several towns and islands named. The active volcano Etna is shown with flames. From the 1541 edition of the "Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae "printed in Vienne by Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel, and text edited by Michael Servetus. Blank verso. Woodcut, in perfect condition." La Gumina (2015), n. 19; Valerio - Spagnolo, p. 124 n. 15 Dimensioni 402 277mm [Attributes: First Edition]
