First edition, and a fine copy, of this voluminous work, one of the best of the 17th century on the wonders of animate nature and physical phenomena. The first volume is dedicated to the wonders of the human race (monsters, etc.) but contains also one of the most complete treatises on demonology, including angels and ghosts. The second volume treats animals and atmospherical phenomena, richly illustrated with plates. There are of course numerous references to electricity, lightning and thunder. The text also deals extensively with meteors and other heavenly bodies, astrology, witchcraft, portents, and medicine; the section on animals is important for its information on South American mammals. Schott (1608-66), a Jesuit and disciple of Kircher, rendered definite services to scientific investigation by his correspondence with numerous experimenters and mechanicians and by publicizing the achievements of contemporary physicists. Very nice copy. Bookplate of Docteur François Moutier. ? Caillet 10004-(calling for 42 plates only). Thorndike, VII, Chap. 21. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         De Plantis Libri XVI

      20 p.l., 621, [10] pp. Thick 4to, cont. vellum (name erased from blank portion of title), yapp edges, ties gone. Florence: G. Marescotti, 1583. First edition of a rare book; this is the foundational work of scientific botany. The ideas of Cesalpino (1519-1603), "governed the development of botany in the 17th century and…extended into the 18th. He was perhaps the first great theorist in botany. His method was Aristotelian and deductive; but he based his principles on accurate observation…He was the first to describe in accurate detail the parts of flowers, seeds, and fruits, and based his analytic classification on those parts. He was perhaps the first to wrestle in print with the concept of species; and his solution, like those of many modern botanists, was based on the capacity of a group to reproduce its kind."-Rickett, "Botany from 840 to 1700 A.D." in Hunt Catalogue, Vol. I, pp. xxvii-xxviii. "The fullest statement of contemporary botanical theory and the most powerful contribution to its further development were given by Andreas Cesalpino in his De Plantis libri XVI…The whole work is of the greatest scientific and historical significance and deserves close attention. Written in clear but condensed philosophical style, its importance has not always been fully appreciated, in spite of the very high tribute paid to Cesalpino by Ray and Linnaeus."-Morton, History of Botanical Science, pp. 128-29. A fine and crisp copy. ❧ Dibner, Heralds of Science, 20. Printing & the Mind of Man 97. Sparrow, Milestones of Science, 34.

         Symbola Heroica. [Latin translation from the French by Joannes Gubernator].

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1583. - 16mo. pp. 319, [1]. woodcut printer's device on title. 216 woodcut emblematic heraldic devices. contemporary blind-stamped calf, covers paneled in blind with central oval ornament (traces of gilding) (joints rubbed, 2 wormtracks throughout touching a number of words or woodcuts). Bibliotheca Elseghemensis bookplate. Third Plantin Press Edition of the Latin translation by Joannes Gubernator (first: 1562), which combines the popular emblematic heraldic devices of Paradin (179) with those of Simeoni (37). The woodcuts are the same as those used in Plantin's 1567 edition except for one, which has been recut. The Paradin illustrations are ultimately based on the original Lyons blocks attributed to Bernard Salomon which were published in 1551 and 1557. Paradin's work in particular played a major role in the European emblem tradition. It is traditionally assumed that Shakespeare was acquainted with Paradin's 'Devices', upon which the devices of the knights of Pericles, Act II, sc. ii are based (see J.H.Green, 'Shakespeare and the Emblem Writers', p. 75 & Praz pp. 220-21). Voet (Plantin Press) 1954. Adams P-295. BM STC Dutch p. 165. Praz p. 445. cfLandwehr, 'Emblem Books in the Low Countries', 470. See Mortimer, Harvard French 16th Century Books, 409-10.

      1583 - Copper engraving and etching, image: 52,5 x 34,5 cm Highly decorarive nautical chart of Brittany in France. Engraved by Joannes van Doetecum and published in 1583 in 'Spieghel der Zeevaerdt' by Lucas Janszoon Waghenaer. With a large Renaissance Cartouche and, ships and sea monsters. Johannes von Doetecum came from a famous Dutch family of engravers. The Doetecums developed a special technique of etching, highly regarded even by the contemporary artists. In 1609 Matthias Quad wrote, that the Jan and Lucas van Doetecum’ etchings made the images on the maps appear as hand-drawings. The technique remained the secret of the family and was forwarded to Jan’s sons Johannes Jr. and Baptista. (Ungefehrlich umb das Jahr 1570 haben zwey gebrüder Johan und Lucas van Doetecum eine ganz newe und uverkünstige art von etzen erfunden also daß sie allerley Figuren Landtaffeln / mit allen Schrifften und Littern darin / daß es lange Zeit von vielen verstendigen fur keine etzung / sonder einen reinen Schrift ißt angesehen werden.

      Sans lieu (Genève), Apud Guillielmum Leimarium, 1583. - Fort volume in-4. 8ff. 824pp. 376pp. 53ff. Veau brun, dos à nerfs, décor à froid sur les plats (Reliure moderne dans le goût de l'époque). Cet important lexique grec-latin, publié sans nom d'auteur, pourrait être celui composé par l'imprimeur et érudit protestant Jean Crespin, ami de Théodore de Bèze. Mais il pourrait s'agir aussi de celui réalisé par le philologue allemand Jean Scapula. Employé dans l'imprimerie d'Henri Estienne, Scapula avait participé à la correction du magnifique "Thesaurus Grecae Linguae", le "magnus opus" d'Estienne et en composa un abrégé dont le titre complet est proche du notre (cf. NUC). Titre dans un bel encadrement architectural gravé sur bois, avec des personnages et des grappes de fleurs et de fruits (marge extérieure consolidée). Bon exemplaire.

Third and definitive edition, greatly revised and expanded by the author and printed by Plantin's son-in-law using a wide variety of non-Latin types, of a thorough scholarly study of classical, biblical and "oriental" chronology, by the leading linguist and linguistic scholar of his generation ("the greatest scholar of his age" PMM). Three of the non-Latin types (nashk Arabic, majuscule Samaritan and Ethiopic) were cut especially for this work. Scaliger and Raphelengius were far ahead of their time in viewing Arabic as an important field of study in its own right, and they showed sympathy for Arabic culture. Like their predecessors, they used Arabic for biblical exegesis, but they also studied the Quran, medical, mathematical and astronomical texts and other works originally written in Arabic. In the present work, Scaliger studied and compared the calendars and historical chronology of the Greeks, Romans, Persians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Jews and others, attempting to link them so that their dates could be related to those of the European calendar. Scaliger's work in this area "towers above that of his contemporaries" (PMM) and served as an essential key to modern historical scholarship. This was the first work ever set in Raphelengius's pioneering Arabic type, which set the stage for the Arabic types of Thomas Erpenius and others in the Netherlands and abroad: "it served as the foundation stone for a revolution in Arabic scholarship" (Lane). With a piece cut out of the title-page. It has been patched with a paper slip, and with further slips in the endpapers. With water stains in about a dozen leaves and occasional slightly browned patches, but otherwise in very good condition and with generous margins. The binding is slightly dirty, the spine-title faded and the headbands have lost much of their green thread.

         Libro de enfrenamientos de la Gineta, por Eugenio Mançanas, ensayador dela casa dela Moneda de Toledo por su Magestad.

      Toledo, Juan Rodriguez, impressor y mercader de libros for Pecho Rodriguez,1583. - Small 4to. [4] + 38 + [4] leaves. Roman letter. Large title woodcut portrait, 6 full-page woodcuts, 17 vertical half-page woodcuts, full-page woodcut heraldic device at end; 25 ornamental initials (1 large & historiated, 1 medium-sized). 18th century quarter sheep, decorative boards with worm-damage repaired. An early influential treatise on how to bridle and to shoe a horse ‘a la gineta’, a style of riding developed in Renaissance Spain for hunting bulls. The rider was taught the role of the bit as essential means of communication between himself and the horse; he learnt to use short stirrups with slightly bent legs to ensure maximum spur contact which allowed fast stops and sudden changes of direction, essential for out manoeuvering a bull. The technique was also widely practised in contemporary Spanish-dominated southern Italy, where horses of Spanish origin were called “Ginnetti” (jennets or light coursers). The book is divided into 22 chapters discussing the correct bit for each horse based on studying many differences in horses’ mouths, 7 chapters on shoeing including remarkable woodcuts of a horse’s skull, hoofs, and 2 iron horse shoe patterns, and a third part with 18 striking illustrations (1 full-page & 17 vertical half-page) of diverse elaborate bits designed to control the horse which are thought to be of north African origin. The jinetes were developed during the reconquest of Spain from the Moors, whose light cavalry tactics the Crusaders adopted during the 14th century. The fine title portrait of the author (11.5 x 8.8cm), is followed by the royal privilege granted by Philip II with a license for another ten years confirmed by Juan Gallo de Andrada, royal clerk, dated 10th March 1580. The brief dedicatory address to Don Diego de Cordoba, the royal riding master, patron of the author, is joined by his 2-page reply. The volume ends with an address to the reader, a five-page index, and a final leaf with the dedicatee’s arms on verso. All woodcuts bear the author’s initials. Eugenio Mançanas, described on the title as assay-master to the royal mint at Toledo, was already deceased at the time of the issue of the second licence. Pérez Pastor Toledo, 361, describing the woodcuts as identical to the 1570 first edition except for the horseshoe patterns on pp24 & 28, states that the portrait and dedicatee’s arms at end appear here for the first time in this second edition.The high contemporary esteem and demand for this work is reflected by the fact that its author sent 300 copies of the 1570 edition from Toledo to the rector of the university of Mexico. Cf: G.R.G.Conway, Francisco Cervantes de Salazar and Eugenio Manzanas, 1571-1575; a bibliographical note on the Libro de enfrenamientos de la gineta by Eugenio Manzanas, of which three hundred copies were sent by the author to Dr Francisco Cervantes de Salazara in Mexico from Toledo in 1571. Palau 156230; Salva 3367 (1570 edition); USTC 339757. Repairs of worming in margins of title, second and last leaf; faint traces of waterstaining in tailend outer corners, otherwise well preserved.

         Carta de Donacíón (grant of land) Manuscript on paper. Early American commercial document

      Lima 1583 - (Peru) Aguerro, Diego de. Carta de Donacíón (grant of land) Manuscript on paper. Folio. 1 text page in a chancery hand. [Los Reyes = Lima] 19th December 1583. Signed by Diego de Aguerro, Ambrosio de Moscoso (scribe) & Francisco Onteriz. Grant of seven fanegas ‘de sembradura de trigo’ (of arable land) in Valle de Cañete (San Vicente de Cañete near Lima) given by Capitán Conquistador * Diego de Aguerro, town councillor and resident of Los Reyes to Doña Ynes Montesino, his godmother and the wife of Francisco Corte Rabanada in recognition of her good care of him – ‘porque fuys mi comadre y por muy buenas obras y servicios que me abbeys hecho que merecen mucha mas remuneración y premyo’. (A fanega was an extent of arable land, generally of 400 fathoms square). The donor, Capitán Diego de Aguerro, was one of the original 160 conquerors of Peru together with Francisco Pizarro. He had taken part in the battle of Cajamarca (16th November 1532), when the Inca army was destroyed, and received part of the regal ransom paid by the deposed king Atahualpa; he later served under Almagro in Ecuador, as co-founder of Quito and helped to found Lima, where he was appointed regidor, and became a generous donor of benefices, especially to the religious orders. The second text page contains a separate document: Deed of sale including an eleven year old negro slave: Carta de Venta (deed of sale) 1 text page in a chancery hand [Los Reyes = Lima] 19th December 1583. Signed: Diego de Montesino, Ambrosio de Moscoso (scribe) & Francisco Onteriz. Sale of half of 2 fanegas of land in the Valle de Yca (Ica in southern Peru) with a vineyard (‘una viña con seys myll posturas poco más o menos’) and Juan Criollo, an eleven year old negro slave. Sold by Diego Montesino of Los Reyes (Lima) to Capitán Diego de Aguerro, town councilor and resident in Los Reyes for 2000 pesos. Light fraying in margins, otherwise a very well preserved early American commercial document. * Title awarded to the 160 soldiers who had joined Francisco Pizarro in the conquest of Peru.

This 1583 printing is taken directly from the extended French language version which first appeared in 1557 by Tournes.

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. Vredeman de Vries (ca. 1527-1606) was a much celebrated Dutch architect and draughtsman whose model books and works on perspective disseminated the new artistic innovations of Renaissance Italy to Northern Europe.Plates numbered 1-8 second issue with engraved numbers. Plates numbered 1-20 with engraved captions: Dorica (plates 1-6); Ionica (plates 7-13); Corinthia (plates 14-20).Ad2: Second Edition of the first German translation of Vitruvius (First Edition, Nuremberg, 1548).Translated by Walter Hermann Ryff. Trained as an apothecary, Ryff, who called himself "surgeon" or "doctor" in his over 200 recorded works, largely compilations of medical and or pharmaceutical texts, was one of the most important agents for the spread of scientific knowledge in the 16th century. Apart from the actual architecture, the work also deals with many technology related objects, water and thermal springs, mill technology, grain grinders as well as measuring instruments and sundials among others. The marvelous woodcuts, are tentatively attributed to the engravers Peter Flötner, Hans Brosamer, and Virgil Solis; their sources include the 1521 Como edition of Vitruvius.Some marginal water staining, binding a little soiled, overall a very good, broad margined handsome copy.PROVENANCE: Christoph Vom Hagen, with initials and coat-of-arms stamped on front cover.

         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."

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
