This 1583 printing is taken directly from the extended French language version which first appeared in 1557 by Tournes. The incredible 122 woodcut engravings in this edition depict many famous Bible scenes including Noah’s Ark, The Tower of Babel, Tempting of Adam and Eve, and many more from Genesis through Maccabees.

Ad1: First edition for both suites. Hans Vredeman de Vries' book Hortorvm Viridariorvmque elegantes... is considered to be the first book which presents a group of garden projects in the Renaissance style.

         S. Francesco riceve le simmate

      1583 - Bulino, 1583 circa, priva di data e firma. Unico stato. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La datazione proposta per questa incisione di Agostino, oscilla tra il 1581, suggerito da Bodmer, e il 1583, proposto da De Grazia. Casali-Calvesi la datano al 1582. In effetti, il paesaggio corrisponde sommariamente a quello degli Apostoli, eseguiti nel 1583, così come il volto del Santo di Assisi è affine per stile alle stesse figure. Engraving, about 1583, without date and signature. Good work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, perfect conditions. The date proposed for this work, oscillates between 1581, suggested by Bodmer, and 1583, proposed by De Grazia. Casali-Calvesi date it to 1582. In fact, the landscape corresponds roughly to that of the Apostles, executed in 1583, as well as the face of the Saint from Assisi is similar in style to the same figures.

         Germani Audeberti Aurelii Venetiae ad Sereniss. Ac. Sapientiss. Venetiarum. Principem Nicolaum Deponte et Illustriss. Atq. Prudentiss. Senatores. Patriciosq. Venetos.

      Venetiis, Apud Aldum, 1583, plein vélin de l'époque (taché), titre manuscrit à la plume à l'envers, au bas du dos. -Mouillure sur la majorité des ff. - in-4 de (16)-181 pp. Edition originale.Renouard, Alde, p. 233 n° 6.Germain Audebert est né à Orléans vers 1520. Il prit le chemin de l'Italie en 1539 pour y séjourner plusieurs années. De retour à Orléans, il y cultiva les lettres en "humaniste des plus distingués" et entretint des relations avec "une foule d'érudits et de beaux esprits." (Picot)."En 1574, c'est au tour de son fils, Nicolas, de faire le pèlerinage humaniste qui consiste à parcourir l'Italie [ ]. Le jeune Nicolas emporte avec lui de longs fragments des trois poèmes composés par son père sur Venise, Rome et Naples. On entrevoit ici que la fonction des poèmes de Germain lors du voyage de Nicolas est de fournir à ce dernier un moyen d'entrer en contact direct " avec les hommes doctes les plus renommés" en leur soumettant un texte qui bien souvent leur renvoie une image flatteuse d'eux-mêmes." (Le poète et son œuvre, Actes du colloque de Valenciennes, 1999, pp. 85-86)."Son premier ouvrage, qui est consacré à la louange de Venise, est le plus important. Le poème, divisé en trois chants, contient une description exacte, et parois même très minutieuse, de la ville des doges. Son histoire, sa construction, ses poissons et ses coquillages, ses monuments, ses palais, ses trésors, ses gondoles, ses théâtres et ses foires attirent successivement l'attention de l'auteur. Germain rappelle avec reconnaissance l'accueil bienveillant qu'il reçut de Guillaume Pellicier, qui dirigea de 1539 à 1543 l'ambassade de France. Grâce à lui, il put monter sur le Bucintoro un jour de grande fête. Le poète n'oublie pas les grands hommes de Venise. Il cite particulièrement Pietro Bembo, Andrea Navagero, Gio. Battista Cipelli, dit Egnazio, qu'il avait entendu lui-même parler avec éloquence, Ermolao Barbaro, Gasparo Contarini, Domenico Venler, enfin et surtout Paolo Manuzio. [ ]Germain Audebert pria l'ambassadeur de Venise en France, Lorenzo Priuli, qui retournait auprès de la Seigneurie, [de faire, de son ouvrage] hommage au grand Conseil. La présentation eut lieu le 31 mars 1583, et les Vénitiens furent si charmés du poème qu'ils décidèrent, le jour même, de donner à l'auteur le titre de chevalier, plus une chaîne d'or, du prix de 200 écus, et une médaille de Saint Marc. Il fut arrêté, en même temps, que l'ouvrage serait imprimé à 400 exemplaires aux frais de la République. Il parut en effet en 1583." (Emile Picot, Les Français italianisants du XVI siècle, II-p. 157).

De tan feroz y ejecutiva que fue como tribunal de defensa de la pureza de la fe en esos espacios, muy pronto tuvo que reorientar parte de su trabajo volviendo a dirigirlo contra la magia y la brujería, como había hecho entre finales del s. XV y principios del XVI. A facilitar este cambio contribuyó la obra editorial del teólogo dominico aragonés Francisco Peña, célebre desde que en 1578 editase en Roma, con comentarios, rescatándolo del original manuscrito del s. XIV, el 'Directorium Inquisitorum' del dominico catalán Nicolás de Eymeric(1). Tras la edición del 'Directorium', Peña preparó otra docena de obras recuperando textos referidos al oficio y a los procesos inquisitoriales, acompañándolos siempre, aunque el nunca actuase de inquisidor, de notas y comentarios orientados a perfeccionar las prácticas inquisitoriales y su documentación procesal(2). Una de esas publicaciones fue la antología que viene encuadernada en primer lugar en este volumen, con ediciones en Roma, 1584, y Venecia, 1596 -la que ofrecemos-, en la que recogió dos obras del dominico Bernardo Rategna y dos textos breves de Jean Gerson. De Rategna, la 'Lucerna inquisitorum', la 'Linterna para los inquisidores', y el 'Tractatus de Strigibus', el 'Tratado sobre las estirges', seres mitologicos de quienes se decía que chupaban la sangre(3). De Gerson, su protesta en materia de fe y los signos de la herejía. La elección de los textos de Rategna se debía sin duda a su carácter pragmático, a la ayuda que suponían para la práctica profesional de los inquisidores, puesto que la 'Lucerna inquisitorum' es un genuino manual actuación procesal ordenado por entradas alfabéticas y el 'Tratado sobre las estirges' una guía para poder reconocerlas. La elección de los textos de Gerson, en cambio, tenía más que ver con el soporte filosófico para justificar la existencia y la actividad de la Inquisición aunque ello supusiera una traición al pensamiento original. A fin de cuentas, una de las contribuciones teológicas fundamentales de Gerson (junto a la defensa de los concilios frente a los papas y a las órdenes religiosas) se centró en el 'arte' del reconocimiento de los espíritus, el discernimiento de si un pensamiento religioso sostenido era o no ortodoxo, entre lo que se incluía también la diferencia entre mística y posesión o embrujamiento. Praxis iudiciaria inquisitorumLa segunda de las obras encuadernadas en este volumen es la 'Praxis iudiciaria inquisitorum' del dominico Umberto Locati, preparada después de su resignación como obispo y que, de tan meticulosa acerca de cómo debe procederse en un juicio de la inquisición, fue elogia [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Zt., vorne mit figürlicher Platte (Potrait August Kurfürst von Sachsen), hinten Wappen "VD16 S 4514; Goed II, 364; ADB XXXIII, 150f. Erste Ausgabe dieses umfangreichen Werkes, in dem der protestantische Dichter Schuward das Wesen und Wirken der Regenten erklärt. Die Liste der Quellen zu Beginn ist sehr eindrucksvoll und tatsächlich werden einige Hundert Autoren zitiert mit Aussagen darüber, wie ein Herrscher sein sollte, wie er oft tatsächlich ist, wie es ihm und seinen Untertanen gut oder schlecht ergehen kann und wie er entsprechend enden könnte etc. Interessanterweise nimmt das Kapitel über die Laster der Regenten den weitaus grössten Teil ein, wobei nicht nur die Untaten der römischen Caesaren aufgezählt, sondern auch lange Listen neuzeitlicher Korruption aufgeführt werden. Schliesslich folgen Kataloge mit Herrschaftsabfolgen sortiert nach verschiedenen Ländern. "Die Regententafel zählt z. B. 48 biblische Ehrentitel und 46 Laster der Obrigkeit auf, bringt aber auch nützliche historische und geographische Uebersichten." (ADB). - Hübscher Prägeband, vorne mit Portrait des Kurfürsten August von Sachsen. Deckel kaum sichtbar hinterlegt, Vorsätze erneuert, äusserlich kaum merkliche Restaurierungen. Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, wenige Lagen stärker, etwas fleckig, zu Beginn und am Ende etwas knittrig in den Rändern, insgesamt aber gut erhalten und in hübschem, dekorativem Einband.

         Mausoleo di Adriano

      1583 - Bulino, 1583, datato in lastra in basso a destra; con l’indirizzo di Claudio Duchetti. Esemplare nel primo stato di quattro descritto da Huelsen. Magnifca prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, leggere pieghe di carta, in ottime condizioni. Nel 1583 Claudio Duchetti pubblica questa ricostruzione del Mausoleo di Adriano, basata sull’illustrazione contenuta a pagina 6 nel libro di Antonio Labacco "Libro appartenente all’architettura", pubblicato a Roma nel 1559. La lunga iscrizione nel margine fornisce un’affermazione interessante, e cioè che l’imponente pigna di bronzo, oggi nel cortile del Belvedere, ma allora collocato nell’atrio della Basilica di San Pietro, originariamente si trovava proprio sulla sommità del mausoleo, come mostra la ricostruzione. L’incisione è inserita nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Engraving, 1583, dated in the lower margin, with name of editor Claudio Duchetti. Magnificient work on contemporary laid paper, thin margins, in excellent condition. In 1583 Claudio Duchetti published a reconstruction of the Tomb of Hadrian, based upon the illustration on page 6 in Antonio Labacco’s "Libro appartenente all’architettura", published in Rome in 1559. The anonymous print is inscribed with a long text below, with an interesting claim: the large bronze pine code then located in the atrium of Old St Peter’s, today in Belvedere, was originally located, as is shown in the print, on the summit of the structure. The engraving in included in Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Huelsen, n. 128 a/d; Witcombe, p. 326. Dimensioni 370 430mm

In seiner Jugend begeisterte er sich für Martin Luther. Nachdem er jedoch die "Nachfolge Christi" studiert hatte, konvertierte er, wurde katholisch (1552) und trat in das Franziskanerkloster in München ein. Nach seiner Priesterweihe im Jahr 1557 übersiedelte er 1559 in das Kloster in Ingolstadt. In Rom war er als Prediger vom Papst und von den Kardinälen sehr geschätzt. Der Papst schenkte ihm den Titel: "Sedis apostolicae concinator". Ferdinand II berief ihn nach Innsbruck, wo er die Nachfolge des Petrus Canisius Hofprediger wurde. Als solcher geriet "der wortgewaltige und streitsüchtige Franziskaner" (J. Gelmi) schnell mit den Jesuiten in Streit. Trotz allem erwarb sich N. für die Errichtung der Tiroler Franziskanerprovinz große Verdienste. Bald darauf wurde er (1580) Weihbischof in Brixen. Auch da gab es Streit um ihn: 1583 brach ein offener Konflikt aus mit dem Brixner Generalvikar Adam von Arz. Nach kurzem Aufenthalt in Lambach in Oberösterreich kam N. 1586 wieder nach Brixen. Lapidar umreisst Gelmi die Persönlichkeit des N.: "N. war begabt, aber exzentrisch und an vielen Konflikten durch seine grobe Art selbst schuld. Er erwarb sich um die Erneuerung der Tiroler Kirche große Verdienste." (S. 494). Sein Grab findet sich in der Hofkirche zu Innsbruck. - Die Holzschnitte zeigen Kämpfe der Truppen von den Türmen Babylons und des himmlischen Jerusalems gegen apokalyptische Drachen und Ungeheuer.

Not in Brunet or other French catalogues. Not in French National Library's Italian catalogue either. Modern vellum, flaps. 8vo, (16) 76 ll.A treatise on different types of fever (hectic, erratic, ?plague-like) and - what's more unusual - on the circulation of the blood. William Harvey gave a full description of the circulation of blood in 1628; this treatise thus comes in the wake of, and at the time of, the great discoveries on the blood. Galen placed the origin of blood in the liver and this view was not challenged before the 16th century. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Absent à Brunet et dans les catalogues français.

C'est en 1628 que William Harvey fera de la circulation sanguine une description complète, ce traité se situe donc dans le sillage et l'époque des grandes découvertes concernant le sang. Gallien avait situé l'origine du sang dans le foie et on ne verra pas autrement avant les remises en cause du XVIe siècle.

      (Genève), apud Petrum Santandreanum, 1583. 8vo. (1),196,(18),62 p. Vellum 17 cm (Ref: 1 GLN 3005; Schweiger 2,354, Smitskamp 60) (Details: Six thongs laced through the joints. Printer's mark on the title. Veritas printer's device on the title: a woman, the naked truth, seated on a cubus, holding a radiant sun in her right hand; in her left hand she holds an opened book and a palm leaf; her feet rest on the globe; the garland of fruit which surrounds her shows a ribbon with the text in Greek: Alêtheia Pandamatôr, i.e. Allmighty Truth). (Condition: Vellum partly soiled. Right margin of title slightly thumbed; title slightly browning) (Note: Festus is a 2nd century grammarian, who produced an abbreviation of a lexicographic work by Marcus Verrius Flaccus, a wellknown antiquarian and grammarian living in Augustan Rome. Verrius compiled an enormous lexicon in 80 books, full of unusual, difficult, and archaic words, with discussions about customs, political institutions, belief and Roman law. Remains of his work survive in the epitome of 20 books made by Sextus Pompeius Festus. Festus also added examples found in other sources; the original work of Verrius is completely lost, and only 1 manuscript of Festus survived the Middle Ages in an heavily mutilated form. The first reliable text, which was a great improvement compared to earlier editions was published in 1559 by Antonio Agustin, 1517-1586, who made good use of the Farnese manuscript at Naples, and aimed at reconstructing the text in a strict alphabetical order from A to V, with the help of other Medieval epitomes of Festus. GLN 15-16 states that this edition is a reissue of an edition published in 1581 in Rome. According to Smitskamp 60 Fulvius Ursinus simply reproduces Scaliger's edition without mentioning his name. In the praefatio to the 62 pages with learned notes the reader is assured that this edition (of 1583) is a faithful transcription of the sole surviving MS of Festus) (Collation: A-N8, O4; A-C8, D8 (minus leaf D8) (Photographs on request)

         EUROPAE

      Anversa 1583 - Rara carta dell'Europa disegnata e incisa da Philippe Galle per la prima edizione del suo Spieghel der Werelt, tascabile, il primo atlante tascabile, edito nel 1577 in lingua olandese. La mappa, sostanzialmente basata su quella grande edita nel Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius, rispetto alla quale è più aggiornata e ricca nella toponomastica, presenta numerosi elementi decorativi, quali navi e mostri marini. A differenza delle altre carte dell'Epitome, questas mappa ha un formato più largo. La lastra fu utilizzata solo per poche edizioni dell'opera, di qui la sua rarità. Esemplare tratto dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde. Le Miroir du Monde è l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle. Due anni dopo, nel 1579, fu data alle stampe l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa, perché Heyns non aveva avuto il tempo necessario per la resa in versi, col titolo Le Miroir du Monde. Il successo di questa edizione francese, è provato proprio dalla seconda edizione pubblicata a soli 4 anni di distanza, nel 1583. Complessivamente Galle pubblicò 5 edizioni in lingua francese, di cui solo le prime due con il titolo Le Miroir du Monde; a partire dal 1588, e così per le edizioni del 1590 e del 1598, il titolo dell’opera fu modificato in Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, e il nome di Peeter Heyns non figurò più sul frontespizio. Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l’ultima – edita nell’anno della morte di Ortelius – conteneva ben 123 mappe. A fine example of that uncommon map of all Europe, designed and engraved by Philippe Galle for the first edition of Spieghel der Werelt, the first modern pocket-atlas, based on Abraham Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, published in 1577. This map appeared in only a handful of editions of the miniature atlas, consequently is quite rare. Europe map published by Galle is larger that the other maps in the atlas. Numerous decorative features including ships, sea-monsters and so on can be seen in elaborate design. This example was published in the second French edition of ‘Le Miroir du Monde’, published by Galle & Heyns in 1583, printed by Plantin. Le Miror du Monde is the French transaltion of the Duch poems Spieghel der Werelt, the first modern pocket-atlas, published by Philip Galle with text by Peeter Heyns in 1577, based on Abraham Ortelius’ Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The maps were drawn and engraved by Galle. Two years later, in 1579, Galle & Heyns published the first French edition: Heyns translated the Dutch poems into French prose because he did not find time to put them into rhyme. This French edition became very popular and in 1583 an amplified reprint appeared. Galle & Heyns published 5 French edition, two with the title Miroir, and three (1588, 1590, 1598) with the title Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, that appeared from 1588 onwards (Peeter Heyns’ name no longer figures on the title pages of the Antwerp editions). Second French edition of this rare miniature atlas, "enlarged with eleven maps. six are double sized" (Koeman p. 275). Compared to the first edition of 1579, which contained 72 maps, the second edition was increased by 11 new maps, for a total of 83 plates. Between 1577 & 1598 Galle issued 11 editions, all printed by Christopher Plantin. Dimensioni 217 161mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Ritratto di Johannes Stradanus

      1583 - Bulino, circa 1583, firmato in lastra in basso. Da un disegno di Jan van der Straet detto Stradano. Esemplare di secondo stato, con l’aggiunta delle scritte. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame ed applicata per un lato su antico supporto di collezione, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Goltzius incide tre differenti ritratti dell’artista fiammingo; questa lastra, incisa nel 1583 è la più antica delle tre, ed è ispirata da un disegno di Stradano da cui il Goltzius prende in prestito anche le figure allegoriche, come documenta un disegno oggi conservato agli Uffizi di Firenze. Le tre donne della cornice ornamentale rappresentano le allegorie dell’architettura, della pittura e del disegno. Bellissimo esemplare di questo suggestivo ritratto. Engraving, 1583 circa, signed on lower plate. After a drawing by Jan van der Straet, also known as Stradano. Example in the second state, with some writings added. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark and laid on collector’s paper, in excellent condition. Goltzius engraved three different portraits of the Flemish artist; this plate is the oldest and derives from a drawing of Stradano with whom Goltzius had business relations. The three women in the decorative frame depict the allegories of architecture, painting and drawing. Beautiful example of a striking portrait. TIB pp.193/194, 187 II/II; Baroni Vannucci pp. 442/443, 790.1; Strauss 181; Holllstein 217. Dimensioni 130x205. 1500 Dimensioni 130 205mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Elegantissimis iconibus a Johanne Stradano Flandro, artificiosissimo penicillo delineata & à Philippo Gallaeo in aes incisa ed edita 1583". I lavori, tratti dai disegni dello STRADANO, tuttavia portano date differenti e secondo Hirschmann le incisioni del Goltzius (autore assieme al Galle delle opere) sono databili al 1578. La serie è composta da tre parti: questa opera è tratta dal "D. Caroli V. Caesaris et Illustriss. Cosmae Medices. Gestae", che raffigura le battaglie vittoriose di Carlo V e Cosimo dei Medici su Piero Strozzi, 1553/1554. Secondo lo Strauss (che elenca le opere di Goltzius) sono nel primo stato di due o di tre. Incisione in rame, piccoli margini, leggere abrasioni, strappo di carta restaurato,nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Rara. Dimensioni 295 220mm

         A DEFENSE OF THE SINCERE AND TRUE TRANSLATIONS OF THE HOLIE SCRIPTURES INTO THE ENGLISH TONG, AGAINST THE MANIFOLDE CAUILS, FRIUOLOUS QUARELS, AND IMPUDENT SLAUNDERS OF GREGORIE MARTIN, ONE OF THE READERS OF POPISH DIUINITIE IN THE TRAYTEROUS SEMINARIE OF RHEMES

      London: Imprinted by Henrie Bynneman, for George Bishop, 1583. FIRST EDITION. Written as an obviously truculent repudiation, this book is a response to Gregory Martin's 1582 Rheims New Testament translation and "Discoverie of the Manifold Corruptions of the Holy Scriptures." It is one of several polemical treatises Fulke (1528-89) produced as spokesman against the Roman Catholic side during his active participation in the continuing religious controversy of the period. According to DNB, during the last decade of Fulke's life, "no year passed without the appearance of one or more books [by him] in defence of Protestantism, and in confutation of the church of Rome. His language was unmeasured, and even in that age, he was conspicuous for the virulence of his invective against his opponents. His learning was, however, extensive and sound, and he was an able master of controversy." The printer, Henry Bynneman (d. 1583) took up his trade as stationer in 1566, and prospered as printer and bookseller. His greatest work was the printing of Holinshed's "Chronicles" in 1577. The present book was printed in the last year of his life. This volume once resided in the fine library assembled by several generations of barons Harlech at their Shropshire estate, Brogyntyn. The inscription is likely in the hand of the fourth Lord Harlech, William George Arthur Ormsby-Gore (1885-1964), a bibliophile who served as president of the National Library of Wales in the 1950s. According to DNB, he "added many rare books" to the family collection. This is an uncommon work: just two other copies have appeared at auction since the 1980s, and virtually all copies are found in sad condition.. 170 x 105 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). [6], 95, [1], 1-144, 147-514, 517-532, [4], 71 pp. (mispaginated as ESTC copy, but complete). FIRST EDITION. Late 19th century blue three-quarter morocco, raised bands, gilt titling. Title page with woodcut printer's device, woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials. Printed sidenotes in Greek, Latin, Hebrew, and English. Front flyleaf with ink inscription of "Harlech / Brogyntyn." STC 11430; Lowndes I, 845; Sayle 1511. Spine uniformly darkened, one corner lightly rubbed, three gatherings a bit browned, one leaf with small hole (paper flaw) affecting a shoulder note, but a fine copy of a book almost never found like this, clean and crisp with ample margins in a binding with few signs of wear.Written as an obviously truculent repudiation, this book is a response to Gregory Martin's 1582 Rheims New Testament translation and "Discoverie of the Manifold Corruptions of the Holy Scriptures."

         Lexicon greco-latinum novum.

      Guillaume Le Maire,, Genève, 1583 - In 4° (24 x 15,7). Bel frontespizio xilografico a bordura, testo in greco e latino, capilettera xilografici. Bell’esemplare fresco e marginoso in superba legatura coeva tutta pelle, riccamente impressa a secco e con doppia cornice oro con fregi iscritti ai piatti e grande emblema della fortuna senza delfino ornata da grottesche al piatto anteriore. Altro emblema al piatto post. Dorso a nervi ornato; un piccolo restauro a mancanza alla cuffia inferiore. Tagli dorati e bulinati. Tracce di lacci; ex-libris ottocentesco "Nordkirchen" al risguardo anteriore. Seconda edizione (1a: 1580) del Lexicon greco curata dall’erudito tedesco Johannes Scapula. L’abbondanza di testo e di citazioni tratte dalla monumentale opera dell’Estienne, impressa pochi anni prima valse a quest’opera l’accusa di plagio. Certo è che il successo editoriale però fu tutto dalla parte di questa versione, ampia ma concisa e agile nella struttura consultativa, il che ne spiega le numerose reimpressioni per tutto il Cinquecento e Seicento. L’emblema al piatto anteriore della donna che spiega una vela (la Fortuna) ebbe principalmente uso in Italia, ciò non toglie che anche in botteghe del Nord Europa sia stato adoperato, come in questo caso. La manifattura potrebbe essere localizzata a Norimberga oppure nell’area fiamminga. CHAIX/DUFOUR/MOECKLI, Les livres imprimés à Genève de 1550 à 1600, Genève 1966, p. 108.

         Tiipus Orbis Terrarum

      Anversa 1583 - Magnifico esemplare di questa rara carta del mondo di Philippe Galle, realizzata per la prima edizione dello Spieghel del Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577. Questa carta del mondo è una fedele ed accurata riduzione della prima mappa del mondo di Ortelius del 1570, che era la tavola di apertura del suo celebre atlante Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Shirley, 122; Koeman, Ort 1; Karrow: 1/6, van der Krogt AN: 0001:31A). La lastra incisa da Philippe Galle, reca la data del 1574, sebbene la prima edizione dell'Epitome (secondo il titolo che diventerà comune nei secoli successivi), sia stata pubblicata nel 1577. Questa mappa verrà utilizzata per le sole edizioni dell'Epitome edite dal 1577 al 1585, e sarà poi sostituita da una lastra più piccola, a partire dal 1588. A differenza delle altre carte dell'Epitome, il mappamondo ha un formato più largo. La citazione latina nel margine inferiore, già presente nel modello di Ortelius, è da Cicerone (Tusculanae Disputatianes IV. 1 7. 37) "Quid ei potest videri magnum in rebus humanis, cui aeternitas omnis, totiusque mundi nota sit magnitudo" ovvero "Che cosa, tra le vicende umane, può sembrare grande a colui al quale è nota la grandezza del mondo e l'eternità dell'universo?". La carta del mondo di Ortelius, incisa e firmata da Franciscus Hogenberg, è di fondamentale importanza per la storia della cartografia in quanto costituisce la PRIMA MAPPA DEL MONDO a essere realizzata per un atlante di formato uniforme e non composito, quali gli atlanti del Lafrery. Le fonti cartografiche della carta sono il mappamondo di Mercator del 1569, quello di Gastaldi del 1561 e il portolando dell'Atlantico di Diego Gutierrez. La forma ovale rimanda, invece, ad Appiano e Bordone. Esemplare tratto dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde. Le Miroir du Monde è l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle. Due anni dopo, nel 1579, fu data alle stampe l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa, perché Heyns non aveva avuto il tempo necessario per la resa in versi, col titolo Le Miroir du Monde. Il successo di questa edizione francese, è provato proprio dalla seconda edizione pubblicata a soli 4 anni di distanza, nel 1583. Complessivamente Galle pubblicò 5 edizioni in lingua francese, di cui solo le prime due con il titolo Le Miroir du Monde; a partire dal 1588, e così per le edizioni del 1590 e del 1598, il titolo dell’opera fu modificato in Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, e il nome di Peeter Heyns non figurò più sul frontespizio. Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l’ultima – edita nell’anno della morte di Ortelius – conteneva ben 123 mappe. Fine example of Philippe Galle's rare map of the World, engraved for the first edition of his Spieghel del Werelt, the first miniature edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. This map is a neatly-engraved smaller copy of Ortelius' first world map plate, published in 1570, that is the first map of the Theatrum Orbis Terrrarum (Shirley, 122; Koeman, Ort 1; Karrow: 1/6, van der Krogt AN: 0001:31A). The Galle's plate is dated 1574 although the first printing of Galle's atlas did not taken place until 1577. The motto below the map is a quotation from Cicero (Tusculanae Disputatianes IV. 1 7. 37) Quid ei potest videri magnum in rebus humanis, cui aeternitas omnis, totiusque mundi nota sit magnitudo (For what human affairs can seem important to a man who keeps all eternity before his eyes and knows th [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

         De plantis libri XVI

      Florence: Georgium Marescottum, 1583. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut printer's device on title and on the colophon, woodcut initials. Full calf, gilt decorations in an antique style, morocco spine label, spine label; minor waterstain to index leaves. Faint contemporary ownership signature at foot of title page. An excellent copy. First edition of the first "rational system of plant classification" (PMM). Cesalpino's work became the foundation of scientific botany and the first articulation of the modern concept of species. With the knowledge of the existence of a greater number of plants, a method of scientific classification was needed. This era began with Cesalpino, who created his system of classification based upon plant morphology. "He insisted that distinctions among species should be made only according to similarity or dissimilarity of forms, and that 'accidental' attributes, such as medicinal use and habitat, must not be considered; in doing so, he elevated botany to the level of an independent science" (Norman). The first section of this ground-breaking work contains the general system of comparative study, retaining the traditional divisions of trees, shrubs, half-shrubs and herbs, but further sub-dividing them into different categories according to their seed, fruit and flower. The remaining sections describe over fifteen hundred plants, placing them into fifteen classes. Cesalpino focuses on the roots, stems and fruit as the basis for his classification. It is in this taxonomy that the De plantis most decidedly marks an epoch in the history of botany. The effect of this work was enormous, profoundly influencing botanists that followed, including Linnaeus in his famous works on classification, his Systema naturae of 1735 and his Classes plantarum in 1738. Indeed, Linnaeus' own fully annotated copy of De plantis now resides in the library of the Linnean Society. Cesalpino (1519-1603) was born at Arezzo in Tuscany and studied under Ghini at Pisa, where he graduated in medicine, and thereafter succeeded Aldrovandi as director of the garden at Bologna, in 1555 becoming professor of botany. He later became a professor in Rome and physician to Pope Clement VIII.

        1583 Hadrianus Junius Polyglot Dictionary Lexicon Dutch Latin Byzantine Plantin

      Antverpiae : ex officina Christophori Plantini, M. D. LXXXIII, [1583]. - 1583 Hadrianus Junius Polyglot Dictionary Lexicon Dutch Latin Byzantine Plantin "An important multilingual dictionary offering many subjects in German, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, and sometimes English.” – Adams (J, 450). Hadrianus Junius (1511-1575) was devoted to linguistics, lexicography, and philological work. He is most-remembered now for his emblematica, but in creating his ‘Emblems,’ he also wrote this dictionary. He scoured through existing encyclopedias and other lexicons to write his own. He was greatly influenced by Byzantine writing, and his successful research was noted as accurate by his contemporaries. The vast majority of Junius’s works were published by either Plantin or Froben, two very well-known and respected 16th-century publishers. Christopher Plantin, the publisher of this work, published only 2,500 copies of this edition – a reissue of the 1577. Item number: #530 Price: $ 950 JUNIUS, Hadrianus Nomenclator, omnium rerum propria nomina variis linguis explicata indicans : multo quam antea emendatior ac locupletior Antverpiae : ex officina Christophori Plantini, M.
