        Antique Print-TURKESTAN-AFGHANISTAN-STEPPE-NOMADS-Ptolemy-Mercator-1578

      1578 - Antique print, titled: 'Asiae Tab. VII. (On map: Scythia intra Imaum ).' - Original antique map of Ancient Scythia. A beautiful Ptolemaic map Central Asia east of the Caspian Sea and what is now Turkestan, the Steppes, Afghanistan and beyond. The Himalayas and Northern India run across the bottom of the map. Embellished with a sea monster, and nomadic figures with lifestock inhabiting the steppes. With a decorative, scrollwork cartouche. From the an early ed. of Mercator's Ptolemy Atlas: 'Claudii Ptolemaei Tabulae Geographicae Orbis Terrarum Veteribus Cogniti.' This Atlas was first published in 1578 and re-published in 1584, 1605, 1618/1619, 1695, 1698, 1704 and 1730. For the 1698 ed. the plates were reworked wit new cartouches and a new title engraving. Of all the editions of Ptolemy the Mercator editions are considered the finest in execution. It was Mercator's intention to produce an Atlas of the classical world, not a current atlas, made as a companion to his modern atlas. We have not been able to determine the exact pre 1798 ed. of this map. Any input appreciated. State: 1st State, before the rework in 1698. Hand coloured engraving on hand laid (verge type with chainlines) paper. Watermark: coat of arms Made by 'Gerard Mercator' after 'Ptolemy'. Gerard Mercator (Kremer) was born in Rupelmonde in Flanders and studied in Louvain. He made his first map in 1537 and became a cartographer and globe maker. In 1552 he moved to Duisburg, Germany where he published his famous 18-sheet world map in 1569 with his own new projection, today called Mercator projection. Later he decided to publish a new edition of Ptolemy's Geographia. Followed by his major work, a 3 volume collection of maps to which the word "Atlas" was applied the first time. The first volume was published 1585, followed by the second in 1589 and the third one after his death in 1595 by his son Rumold. A second edition of all three parts was published 1602. In 1604 Jodocus Hondius acquired the plates and published several editions together with his sons Jodocus II and Henricus until 1633. More editions followed until 1666 by Janssonius who was in partnership with Henricus. Some of the plated where also used in W.J. Blaeu in 1630. Very good, given age. Original fold as issued. Some paper loss at corners margin, not effecting image. Paper edges with some chipping. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling. Please study scan carefully. The overall size is ca. 53 x 38.5 cm. The image size is ca. 46 x 34.5 cm. The overall size is ca. 20.9 x 15.2 inch. The image size is ca. 18.1 x 13.6 inch. Storage location: PCO-B1-12

        Peplus Italiae... Opus, in quo illustres viri Grammatici, Oratores, Historici, Poetæ, Mathematici,

      In 8vo; legatura di fine Seicento in marocchino rosso, piatti con filettatura a secco, dorso a cinque nervi con tassello verde, tagli dorati, risguardi in carta marmorizzata (cerniere deboli, piccolo danno alla parte inferiore del dorso); pp. (16), 128. Leggere bruniture, ma ottima copia.RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo catalogo di uomini e donne che in Italia dal Trecento al Cinquecento si sono distinti in tutte le più importanti discipline del sapere. Il Peplus comprende quattro libri e procede in ordine cronologico. Il libro I si apre con Dante; il IV si conclude con Giovanni Carga. Benché l'opera contenga personalità distintesi nelle più diverse discipline, gli uomini di lettere e i loro protettori la fanno da padrone: il libro I, ad esempio, oltre a Dante, presenta infatti tra gli altri Petrarca, Boccaccio, Valla, Platina, Poliziano, Landino, ma anche Lorenzo e Giovanni de' Medici; nel libro II figurano vicini Aldo Manuzio e Alberto Pio. Delle duecento biografie complessive, quelle di autori cinquecenteschi sono le più numerose. Due sole le donne: Vittoria Colonna e Veronica Gambara. Ogni voce comprende un epigramma e un breve testo in prosa che descrive brevemente i meriti della persona citata. Enfin, le dernier volume publié par Toscano sera un petit livre de renseignements bio-bibliographiques (en vers et prose), sur les auteurs savants de l'Italie - son Peplus Italiae de 1578, publié, encore une fois chez Fédéric Morel à Paris et encore une fois sous l'égide de Dorat et de son approbation liminaire, mais dédié cette fois-ci, d'après ce qu'on lit sur la page de titre, au nouveau comte-évêque de Cahors lui-même, Antoine d'Ebrard, fils du grand diplomate de Catherine de Médicis, Jean d'Ebrard, baron de St-Sulpice en Quercy. Le jeune évêque était aussi le neveu de Christofle d'Ebrard de St-Sulpice - abbé commendataire de l'abbaye bénédictine de Marcilhac-sur-Célé, grand archidiacre de l'église cathédrale de Cahors et chancelier de l'université de Cahors -, pour qui Toscano composa une langue description poétique d'une grotte, ou crypte merveilleuse de Marcilhac-sur-Célé (Cryptae Massiliacensis Topographia) - très bel exemple de l'ekphrasis - qui figure a la fin du Peplus Italiae (pp. 119-124)" (G.H. Tucker, Jean Dorat et Giovanni Matteo Toscano, lecteurs des Pytiques de Pindare en 1566: le double témoignage des ouvrages publiés (1575-1580) de Toscano et d'un livre annoté par lui (1564-1566-7), in: ''Jean Dorat poète de la Renaissance'', a cura di Ch. De Buzon e J.-E. Girot, Genève, 2007, p. 205).Giovanni Matteo Toscano nacque probabilmente a Roma, nonostante in un componimento che compare all'inizio del Peplus sia chiamato 'Gentilhomme Milanois'. Nulla si sa della sua vita: né quando lasciò l'Italia, né per quanto tempo visse a Parigi, dove tra il 1575 e il 1580 furono pubblicate tutte le sue opere. Come si apprende dai suoi scritti egli studiò a Roma, Milano e Bologna, e fu allievo di Pirro Ligorio, Bartolomeo Marliani, Aonio Paleario e Carlo Sigonio. A Parigi Toscano seguì le lezioni di Denis Lambin, forse da lui conosciuto precedentemente a Roma quando questi era in visita alla città eterna al seguito del Cardinal de Tournon, e divenne amico di Jean Dorat. Divenuto un apprezzato poeta di corte, nel 1565 apparve a stampa la sua prima opera, un poema celebrativo in memoria di Adrien Turnèbe. Tutti gli altri suoi componimenti (Octo cantica sacra, i Poemata e una traduzione latina dei Salmi), nonché l'antologia poetica da lui curata Carmina illustrium poetarum italorum, furono pubblicati tra il '75 e l'80 (cf. S.P. Revard, Joannes Mattheus Toscanus and the limits of Italian Humanism, in: ''Confini dell'umanesimo letterario. Studi in onore di Francesco Tateo'', Roma, 2003, pp. 1165-1176).Bibliothèque Nationale Paris, FRBNF31482550; BMC, French Books, p. 423; G.H. Tucker, Forms of the ''Medieval'' in the ''Renaissance'': A Multidisciplinary Exploration of a Cultural Continuum, Charlottesville, VA, 2000, p. 203..

        [OPERA] CON L'ESPOSITIONI DI CHRISTOFORO LANDINO, et D'Alessandro Vellutello. Sopra la sua Comedia dell'Inferno, del Purgatorio, del Paradiso. Con tavole, argomenti, & allegorie, & riformato, riveduto, & ridotto alla sua vera lettura, per Francesco Sansovino Fiorentino

      Appresso Gio. Battista, & Gio. Bernardo Sessa, fratelli, 1578. Second issuance of the first edition with a portrait of Dante. With a fine woodcut title page and 96 woodcut illustrations, including three full-page, 77 large cuts in the text, and numerous head- and tailpieces. Printer's woodcut device on the final leaf. Folio (320 x 218 mm), in a binding of handsome contemporary antique Italian vellum over boards. Original calligraphic titling on the spine panel in Renaissance style. [28 ff.), 163, [4 ff.], 164-393. A copy in a pleasing state of preservation. The text leaves are crisp quite clean, with just a few normal blemishes here and there. Some typical toning to a few of the quires as is normal with the printing of this book. Only the most occasional of the usual spotting of staining. Dante portrait outlined in pen. RARE 1596 EDITION OF THIS HISTORIC PRINTING OF ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS IN THE MIND OF MAN. This is the highly important edition of Dante edited by Francisco Sansovino, incorporating two commentaries: that of Christoforo Landino, which first appeared in the Florentine edition of 1481, and the noteworthy commentary of Alessandro Velutello, first published at Venice in 1544. The volume includes extensive introductory matter by all three commentators, and a running commentary that virtually overwhelms the poem itself. The woodcuts in this edition are taken from those in Velutello's edition of 1544 and represent a departure, both iconographically and stylistically, from those in the Brescia, 1487 edition--they appear more accomplished and more confident in execution. Francesco Sansovino recovered Vellutello's commentary, never printed in Italy again until this time (except for a Lyonese reprint of 1551). This edition, printed here first in 1564, is very important because it is richly illustrated with many woodcuts taken from the edition of 1544 printed by Marcolini. The portrait of Dante on the title-page, inspired in Vasari's tradition, is very famous and this edition is in fact commonly know as 'of the big nose'. The sources of the portrait have probably to be found in two paintings by Vasari, now at the Oriel College of Oxford and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Cleveland.

      "Carta geografica inserita nella ""Geografia""di Claudio Tolomeo a cura di Gerard Mercator, pubblicata in varie edizioni tra il 1578 ed il 1730. Mentre Mercator è forse meglio conosciuto per le sue mappe moderne, uno dei suoi obiettivi era quello di produrre la propria versione della ""Ptolemy's Geographia"". L'atlante, pubblicato nel 1578, comprendeva 27 mappe di Tolomeo, accuratamente restaurate, perfettamente incise e completate da un indice di nomi di luoghi e da una mappa allargata del Delta del Nilo. Un totale di 8 edizioni sono state pubblicate tra il 1578 e il 1730. Incisione in rame, bella coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione." Nice full color example of Mercator's Ptolemaic map of Italy. While Mercator is perhaps best known for his modern maps and the map projection which bears his name, one of his life goals was to produce his own version of Ptolemy's Geographia. As a second installment of his Atlas sive Cosmographia . . ., Mercator published an authentic version of Ptolemy's seminal work, deliberately devoid of the distracting interpretations and misinterpretations by earlier editors intent on improving the Egyptian geographer's seminal work. Mercator's goal was an accurate portrait of Ptolemy's second-century view of the world. To understand the present, the mapmaker believed, one must appreciate the past. The atlas, published in 1578, included Ptolemy's twenty-seven maps, carefully restored, handsomely engraved, and supplemented by an index of place names and an enlarged boundary map of the Nile Delta. A total of 8 editions were published between 1578 and 1730.

        L"Alcoran des Cordeliers. Tant en latin qu"en François. C"est à dire, Recueil des plus notables bourdes & blasphemes impudens de ceux qui ont osé comparer Sainct François à Jesus Christ: tiré du grand livre des Conformitez, jadis composé par frère Barthelemi de Pise, Cordelier en son vivant. Parti en deux livres. Nouvellement y a été ajoutée la figure d"un arbre contenant par branches la conference de S. François à Jesus Christ. Le tout de nouveau reveu & corrigé,

      Genève: Guillaume de Laimarie, 1578 - Fort in-12; Première partie: [viii: titre, Conférence, Préfaces de Luther et Conrad Bude], 334p., [1p.] Aux Cordeliers, 1 planche dépliante des conformités en deux parties. Seconde partie: 13 - 382p. Reliure ancienne en maroquin rouge (reteintée?), plats ornés d"un encadrement à froid et fleurons dorés, dos à nerfs muet. Ex-libris gravé de Germain Barré, curé de Mouville près Rouen. Fameux ouvrage polémique préfacé par Luther contre l"ouvrage du cordelier Barthélémy de Pise, paru au 16ème siècle, et qui soulignait les similarités entre les vies de Saint François et de Jésus Christ. Les deux préfaces de Conrad Badius et de Luther sont l"occasion d"un déchaînement verbal particulièrement violent contre les moines cordeliers "pernicieuse secte de diables gris", "puante bouche" ainsi que les "papistes et cagots". Il reprend le récit hagiographique de Saint François écrit par Barthelemi de Pise en lui ajoutant de nombreuses notes particulièrement virulentes contre les Cordeliers et les Papistes.

        Asiae VIII Tab / Medius meridianus 160, ad quem applicantur reliqui iuxta rationes parallelorum 42 u 54.

      Artist: Ptolemy/ Gerhard Mercator Claudius ca ; issued in: Bruxelles; date: ca1578 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Small tears at the margin restored, little stains and browning; - size (in cm): 35 x 40,5; - description: Decorative map shows a part of China with Mongolia and many decorative representations as tents, hunting scene, cows etc.The rare first issue from Mercator?s definitive edition of Ptolemy?s Geography. This map depicts the area now known as China and Mongolia. Specifically, it shows the lands of Scythia Extra Imaum and Serica. Scythia Extra Imaum refers to the territory of the nomadic Scythians to the east of the Tian Shan mountain range, and the several vignettes within the map illustrate various aspects of nomadic life. Serica was a mysterious land thought to be the source of silk: indeed, the placename literally means ?the land where silk comes from.? Meeting in this map are two of the most important figures in the history of geography. Geographic data and mapmaking instructions left by the Alexandrian, Claudius Ptolemy (fl. A.D. 127-180), became the foundation of mapmaking as we know it today. And it was Gerard Mercator (1512-1594), the great Flemish geographer, whose edition of Ptolemy was considered the most accurate. In particular, Mercator?s maps conformed more closely to Ptolemy?s original design than any of the several earlier editions. Mercator?s became the standard text, with many editions following this one as late as the 18th century. Mercator in 1540 published Literarum latinarum, the first instructional handbook in the use of the italic hand to appear outside of Italy. It was also the first work to offer instruction in the use of italic script in the engraving of maps. The maps in Mercator?s Ptolemy are arguably the finest demonstrations Mercator provided in the use of italics. Moreover, ?the beauty and legibility of the best sixteenth and severteenth-century Dutch maps can be traced in large measure to Mercator?s influence? (Karrow, p. 382). ; - vita of the artist: Gerardus Mercator (1512 - 1594)He was a cartographer, philosopher and mathematician. He is best known for his work in cartography, in particular the world map of 1569 based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. He is renowned to the present day as the cartographer who created a world map based on a new projection which represented sailing courses of constant bearing as straight lines. In his own day he was the world's most famous geographer but in addition he had interests in theology, philosophy, history, mathematics and magnetism as well as being an accomplished engraver, calligrapher and maker of globes and scientific instruments. He wrote few books but much of his knowledge is to be found in the copious legends on his wall maps and the prefaces that he composed for his atlas ,the first in which the term "atlas" appears and the sections within it." Claudius Ptolemy ( arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

        The Seconde Part of the Mirrour for Magistrates, Conteining the Falles of the Infortunate Princes of This Lande. From the Conquest of Cæsar, Unto the Comyng of Duke William the Conqueror

      Imprinted [by Thomas Dawson for] Richard Webster, [London] 1578 - First edition. Title-page with woodcut architectural border (McKerrow 161), woodcut initials. [vi], 66 ff. Collation: *^4 **^2 A-Q^4 R^2. 12mo. First edition of the Second Part. The first and only separate edition of the "Seconde Part" of this important Tudor sourcebook, being a continuation of John Higgins' "First Parte," published first in 1574, itself a prequel to William Baldwin's "Last Part," first published in 1559. Thus this edition fills the gap chronologically between the Higgins first part (which ends with the birth of Christ) and Baldwin's last part (which begins in the 14th century), and includes the stories of Guidericus, Carassus, Helena, Vortiger, Uther Pendragon, and others. The Higgins and Baldwin parts were published by Thomas Marshe, who was not involved in this printing. The Pforzheimer catalogue notes that this is the only work to bear Richard Webster's name in the imprint: "In this instance his role was that of publisher for the volume was printed by Dawson, possibly with the aid of his partner, Thomas Gardiner. There is reason, therefore, to doubt that Webster was a printer."Although not particularly rare in institutional holdings, this Seconde Part has appeared infrequently on the market - the last copy at auction was the Robert Pirie copy, lacking a signature, which sold for $4,750. ESTC S104601; Grolier, Langland to Wither 177; Pforzheimer 736. Provenance: Robert Truelove (contemporary inscription on verso of ff. [vi], some marginalia) Full period style calf, covers with blind-ruled borders, red morocco spine label. Title trimmed with some loss to border, fore-edge margin of **1 and lower margin of A1 torn away and mended, with some loss to text, toned and stained throughout Title-page with woodcut architectural border (McKerrow 161), woodcut initials.

        1578 Albertus Magnus Paradisus Animae Ethics Metaphysics in MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT

      Coloniae : Apud Ludouicu[m] Alectorium & haeredes Iacobi Soteris, anno 1578. - 1578 Albertus Magnus Paradisus Animae Ethics Metaphysics in MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT “Do there exist many worlds, or is there but a single world? This is one of the most noble and exalted questions in the study of Nature.” – Albertus Magnus Albertus Magnus was a 13th-century Dominican friar known for his contributions to philosophy and natural sciences such as mathematics, astronomy, and metaphysics. His work represents the entirety of European knowledge from the 13th-century, particularly in pairing Aristotelian knowledge with Christian doctrine. This exceedingly rare 16th-century printing is of Albertus’ writings on ethics and virtue. In this book, his view points on natural philosophy are discussed in relation to the development of a Christian’s relationship with God and whether or not Aristotelian philosophy would hinder that spiritual growth. Albertus begins this work with describing the love for God: “True love for God is completed when there is no more searching for him, for the sake of nobility, goodness, wisdom, holiness, and perfection; he is the God.” Like in many of his works, Albertus compares metaphysical and philosophical ideas to moral goodness and religion.

        The Seconde Part of the Mirrour for Magistrates, Conteining the Falles of the Infortunate Princes of This Lande. From the Conquest of Cæsar, Unto the Comyng of Duke William the Conqueror

      [London]: Imprinted [by Thomas Dawson for] Richard Webster, 1578. First edition. Title-page with woodcut architectural border (McKerrow 161), woodcut initials. [vi], 66 ff. Collation: *^4 **^2 A-Q^4 R^2. 12mo. Full period style calf, covers with blind-ruled borders, red morocco spine label. Title trimmed with some loss to border, fore-edge margin of **1 and lower margin of A1 torn away and mended, with some loss to text, toned and stained throughout. First edition. Title-page with woodcut architectural border (McKerrow 161), woodcut initials. [vi], 66 ff. Collation: *^4 **^2 A-Q^4 R^2. 12mo. First edition of the Second Part. The first and only separate edition of the "Seconde Part" of this important Tudor sourcebook, being a continuation of John Higgins' "First Parte," published first in 1574, itself a prequel to William Baldwin's "Last Part," first published in 1559. Thus this edition fills the gap chronologically between the Higgins first part (which ends with the birth of Christ) and Baldwin's last part part (which begins in the 14th century), and includes the stories of Guidericus, Carassus, Helena, Vortiger, Uther Pendragon, and others. The Higgins and Baldwin parts were published by Thomas Marshe, who was not involved in this printing. The Pforzheimer catalogue notes that this is the only work to bear Richard Webster's name in the imprint: "In this instance his role was that of publisher for the volume was printed by Dawson, possibly with the aid of his partner, Thomas Gardiner. There is reason, therefore, to doubt that Webster was a printer." Although not particularly rare in institutional holdings, this Seconde Part has appeared infrequently on the market - the last copy at auction was the Robert Pirie copy, lacking a signature, which sold for $4,750. ESTC S104601; Grolier, Langland to Wither 177; Pforzheimer 736. Provenance: Robert Truelove (contemporary inscription on verso of ff. [vi], some marginalia)
