         Carta marina nuova tavola

      Venezia 1561 - Copper engraving, mm 175x240. Ruscelli's mariner's map is a slightly enlarged version of the map which appeared in Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. It features a stipple engraved sea and numerous rhumb lines radiating from seventeen focal points. The only change seems to be the omissions of the names Tierra Del Laborador and Tierra Del Bacalaos from the mass of land joining North America to North Europe. The map contains only minimal interior detail but includes several important ports and trading posts including, Zanzibar on the east coast of Africa and Cambay, one of Indiaís two main ocean ports, visited by Marco Polo in 1293. The Magellan Strait, at the southern tip of South America is labelled and Tierra del Fuego is shown as a very large island. The map appeared in 1562, 1564, 1574 and in Giuseppe Rosaccio's expended edition of Girolamo Russelli Geografia in 1598 and 1599. Girolamo Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia included newly engraved copperplates by Giulio and Livio Sanuto. A fairly good impression, good condition, very light paper discoloration at centerfold. Shirley, World, 111; Burden p. 34, Schilder p.123 cartografia.

      London: (colophon: Imprinted at London, by Jhon Kyngston, for Jhon Wight,) 1561 - Folio (328 x 216 mm). Late 19th-century red morocco by Riviere, spine gilt lettered direct and decorated with blind tooled rules and scrolling floriate motifs, sides with concentric blind tooled ornamental panels and Tudor roses, all edges gilt, blind ruled turn-ins. Neat book label (dated 1899) of the Irish judge William O'Brien (1832-1899), whose discerning library is a microcosm of late 19th-century taste in book collecting, and included a handful of medieval manuscripts, incunabula, Aldine editions, three Shakespeare folios, 16th-century English books and handsome editions of English literature; subsequent labels of Milltown Park Library; title page and first leaf of Prologue with some restoration at margins, some leaves with repairs to closed-tears, very occasional light staining, repairs and marginal restoration to final leaf 3v8 (affecting a few letters), some leaves professionally washed. Large woodcut of Chaucer's arms on title, broad woodcut border to divisional titles for Canterbury Tales and Romaunt of the Rose (both showing Henry VIII at the head), woodcut of the Knight heading the text of the Canterbury Tales, woodcut initials. First Stow edition, the fifth edition overall of Chaucer's collected works, the issue without the woodcuts in the Prologue. The traditional view of the two issues of this 1561 edition has been that the illustrated issue was printed first, and then the cuts were omitted in the second issue because the woodblocks were worn out. Recently however, it has been contested that the printer came into possession of the cuts belatedly, and the unillustrated issue appeared first (see David R. Carlson, "The Woodcut Illustrations in Early Printed Editions of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales", in Chaucer Illustrated: Five Hundred Years of the Canterbury Tales in Pictures, British Library, 2003). This was the first publication of the historian John Stow (1524/5–1605), who had earlier worked on William Thynne's Chaucer edition of 1532. Now primarily remembered for his Survey of London (1598), Stow was an antiquary whose work rivalled and complemented that of his friend Camden. Derek Pearsall has shown how Stow's scholarly skills were slighted because of his humble origins and his trade as a tailor, held to be inappropriately lowly to introduce England's first poet. It was Thomas Speght who belittled Stow, yet he was happy to incorporate notes which Stow supplied him into his own 1598 edition. There were several editions of Chaucer during the 16th-century and this one may well have been used by Shakespeare as a source-book for the story of Troilus and Cressida. Provenance: 16th-century ownership signature on title page of "H. Westfaling" (also initialed "H.W." on divisional title to Canterbury Tales), probably Herbert Westfaling (or Westphaling) - or possibly his son, also Herbert - of Mansell Gamage, Herefordshire, bishop of Hereford. Herbert Westfaling's family originated in Westphalia and he entered Christ Church in 1547 aged fifteen. Archbishop Parker mentioned him in 1570 as a possible bishop of Oxford and he was consecrated bishop of Hereford in January 1586, where he was known for his zeal in converting Roman Catholics, "and was regarded by the lords in council as a fit and able person to be employed in conferences with Jesuits and other recusants. His personal library contained works by leading reformers of his time, his will mentioning the works of Calvin in folio, which he donated to Christ Church, Oxford, and nine volumes by Wolfgang Musculus, which he bequeathed to Hereford Cathedral Library. Shortly before his death he donated £20 to the Bodleian Library for the purchase of new books" (ODNB). Westfaling was "known for his gravity" (ibid.) and Francis Godwin, who succeeded him as bishop of Hereford, commented that he had scarcely ever seen him laugh. There is some inked marginalia (presumably in his hand), largely noting particular – and perhaps unfamiliar - words used by Chaucer, but at the end of th

[About the excellent Prince of the Epirots, George Castrioti's, named Scanderbeg, life, character and deeds, especially against the Turks. Because of his famous exploits he was surnamed Scanderbeg, that is, Alexander the Great. Thirteen books by Marin Barleti of Shkodra] - A scarce early German translation of biography of the Albanian national hero Scanderbeg by the first Albanian historian Martin Barleti was published in Frankfurt in 1561. This is the second edition of the German translation of the Albanian national hero and military leader George Castriot, known as Skanderbeg (1405-1468). After leaving Ottoman service, where he served between 1423-1443, he led a rebellion against the Ottoman Empire in what is today Albania and Macedonia. The the first chapter describes Skanderbeg’s family. His father, Gjon Kastrioti, was fighting against the Ottomans on the Serbian side in the Battle of Plocnik (1386). Further text describes Scanderbeg’s life with emphasis on the battles with Ottomans, under sultan Murat II (1404-1451), who was defeated by Scanderbeg in 1450. The author Marin Barleti (c. 1450–60 – c. 1512–13) was a priest, author and historian from Shkodër in Albania. He is considered to be the first Albanian historian. Born in Shkodër (Shkodra, ital. Scutari), at the time a part of Venetian republic, he participated in the successful defence of the town against the Ottoman army, both in the first siege in 1474 and the second in 1478. A year later, in 1479, when Shkodër was ceded by the Ottoman Empire, Barleti escaped to Venice, where he published the first first-hand account on the battles of Shkodër. Martin Barleti’s first work De obsidione Scodrensi (The Siege of Shkodra) was published in Venice in 1504 and was in the next decades translated to many languages. His second work, on the Albanian national hero Scanderbeg, was published in Venice between 1508 and 1510 with a full title De Vita Moribus Ac Rebus Praecipue Aduersus Turcas, Gestis, Georgii Castrioti, Clarissimi Epirotarum Principis, qui propter celeberrima facinora, Scanderbegus, hoc est, Alexander Magnus, cognominatus fuit, libri Tredecim, per Marinum Barletium Scodrensem conscripti. The work is thought to be an Albanian cultural treasure and a foundation for all the following Scanderbeg studies. The first, very rare German translation of the book by Johann Pinicianus was published already in 1533, in Augsburg by Heinrich Steiner. This second edition, with a different title and illustrations was published in Frankfurt almost three decades later. All early translations of Barleti’s work are rare. We could only trace two examples of this edition in the auction records in the past generation.

He was curator of the garden of Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, prince bishop of Eichstätt in Bavaria. The bishop was an enthusiastic botanist who derived great pleasure from his garden, which was the only important European botanical garden outside Italy. The work was named Hortus Eystettensis (Garden at Eichstätt). The emphasis in botanicals of previous centuries had been on medicinal and culinary herbs, and these had usually been depicted in a crude manner. The images were often inadequate for identification, and had little claim to being aesthetic. The Hortus Eystettensis changed botanical art overnight. The plates were of garden flowers, herbs and vegetables, exotic plants such as castor-oil and arum lilies. These were depicted near life-size, producing rich detail. The layout was artistically pleasing and quite modern in concept, with the hand-colouring adding greatly to the final effect. The work was first published in 1613 and consisted of 367 copper engravings, with an average of three plants per page, so that a total of 1084 species were depicted. [Attributes: First Edition]

Xyl. initials and head-pieces. Printer’s woodcut device at title-page. Many xyl. illustrations in the text. UNCOMMON PAMPHLET BY JOHANNES DE SACROBOSCO ABOUT CHURCH CALENDAR. This copy is the B variation of the 1561 edition, without printing year at title-page. Johannes de Sacrobosco, also written Ioannis de Sacro Bosco (Genoa c. 1195 – c. 1256 in Paris), was a scholar, monk and astronomer who was a teacher at the University of Paris, recorded as originally from Genoa, Italy, residing scholar in Yorkshire and Scotland. He wrote a short introduction to the Hindu–Arabic numeral system which became the most widely read introduction to that subject in the later medieval centuries (judging from the number of manuscript copies that survive today). He also wrote a short astronomy textbook, Tractatus de Sphaera, which was widely read and influential in Europe during the later medieval centuries as an introduction to astronomy. In his longest and most original book, Sacrobosco correctly described the defects of the then-used Julian calendar, and, three centuries before its implementation, recommended a solution much like the modern Gregorian calendar. Provenance: Marginal handwritten study notes at some pages. References: IT\ICCU\LIAE\001284. OCLC, 28058516 (2 copies in USA and 1 copy in UK). Cond.: Presence of marginal water-stains at some pages and light spots. Overall, a very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Papaver flore multiplici incarnato/ Papaver flore multiplici purpurascente

      Artist: Besler Basilius ( - 1629) Nuremberg; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca 1613 1561 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 45,5 x 38,5; - description: Beautiful represntation of the poppy.1.edition of the Hortus Eystettensis, printed and issued from the Basilius Besler in Nuremberg 1613.400 anniversary of the first edition!; -vita of the artist: Basilius Besler (1561?1629) was a respected Nuremberg apothecary and botanist, best known for his monumental Hortus Eystettensis. He was curator of the garden of Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, prince bishop of Eichstätt in Bavaria. The bishop was an enthusiastic botanist who derived great pleasure from his garden, which was the only important European botanical garden outside Italy. The work was named Hortus Eystettensis (Garden at Eichstätt). The emphasis in botanicals of previous centuries had been on medicinal and culinary herbs, and these had usually been depicted in a crude manner. The images were often inadequate for identification, and had little claim to being aesthetic. The Hortus Eystettensis changed botanical art overnight. The plates were of garden flowers, herbs and vegetables, exotic plants such as castor-oil and arum lilies. These were depicted near life-size, producing rich detail. The layout was artistically pleasing and quite modern in concept, with the hand-colouring adding greatly to the final effect. The work was first published in 1613 and consisted of 367 copper engravings, with an average of three plants per page, so that a total of 1084 species were depicted. [Attributes: First Edition]

         MAP OF THE WORLD: ORBIS DESCRIPTIO.

      Copper engraving (Very Good, slight traces from the text on the back), 23,5 x 32 cm (9.2 x 12,6 inches). - Venice: Vincenzo Valgrisi 1561. This classic 16th century map of the world was published in La geografia di Claudio Tolomeo Alessandrino, nuouamente tradotta di Greco in Italiano, by a Venetian author Girolamo Ruscelli, and was based on Giacomo Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. The map is adapted from the oval projection used in Gastaldi's larger world map and is presented on Roger Bacon's circular projection, also used by Tramezzino's large world map of 1554. This is the first state of the map, when two maps were still engraved on one plate and the images were separated after printing. That is why the upper part of the plate does not have a neatline.

         De Re Medica, libri tres: Jacobo Sylvio medico interprete.

      Parisiis, Apud Aegidium Gorbinum, 1561, 8, (14), 200 leaves, Pergamenteinband der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschild einige Seiten angegossen etwas fleckig trotz der Fehler ein schönes Exemplar. Another of the more than forty works attributed to Mesuë the Younger, this one deals with the principles of medicine and the use of drugs, laxatives, and antidotes."Masawayh al-Mardini (known in the West as Mesuë the Younger) is supposed to have been a Jacobite Christian who lived in the tenth century. Since none of his writings has been found in its original language and no Arabian historian or bibliographer seems to know him, it is now believed that a Latin author (perhaps an Italian) of the early thirteenth century assumed the name of Mesuë, hoping thereby to gain ready recognition for his works under the guise of the ninth century Syrian physician who wrote in Arabic. At any rate, his writings were accepted as genuinely Arabian and held such a place of importance that" it passed through more than 30 editions up to 1581 and influenced all later pharmacopeias.This is an early translation from the Arabic by Jacques Dubois, known as Sylvius."Jacques Dubois (1478-1555) a most able anatomist and one often quoted both by contemporaries and by medical men for many years to follow, Dubois (also known as Jacobus Sylvius) was Vesalius' teacher at the University of Paris. He was a staunch Galenist and, when Vesalius cast open doubt on much of Galenic "law," Dubois turned on his former pupil, denounced him, and thus caused Vesalius some of the unhappiness which was later to accumulate to such a great degree."
