        The Historie of the great and mightie kingdome of China

      London: Printed by I. Wolfe for Edward White,1588. - GONZALES DE MENDOZA, Juan (1545-1618). The Historie of the great and mightie kingdome of China, and the situation thereof: Togither with the great riches, huge Citties, politike governement, and rare inventions in the same. Translated from Spanish into English by Robert Parke. London: Printed by I. Wolfe for Edward White, and are to be sold at the little North doore of Paules, at the Signe of the Gun, 1588. 8vo., (7 2/8 x 5 4/8 inches). Woodcut device on title-page, 3 woodcut Chinese characters in the text on pages 92 and 93, one 10-line historiated initial, 1 9-line historiated initial, 5 9-, 8-, or 7-line floriated initials, 2 woodcut head-pieces, 3 -tail-pieces (natural weakness to page 183/184 leaving a small hole affecting the text).

Provenance: The Harcourt Family, with the engraved armorial bookplate, on the front paste-down, of Aubrey Harcourt (1852-1904), of Nuneham Park and Stanton Harcourt, High Sheriff of Oxford, Deputy Lieutenant of Oxfordshire, and Justice of the Peace, their sale Sotheby's London, 4th November, 2014, lot 189. First edition in English, of the revised and most complete edition of this EXCEEDINGLY RARE HISTORY OF CHINA, in a fine contemporary Elizabethan binding. Regarded as one of the most important and influential Elizabethan books of exploration and discovery. The first edition in Spanish was published in Rome in 1585 and this translation is taken from the revised Madrid edition of 1586. It was translated by Robert Parke, as he says himself, at the request and encouragement of the celebrated Richard Hakluyt, before the publication of his own "Principall Navigations". Arranged in three parts, the first part contains an account of the fifteen provinces of China "euery one of them is bigger than the greatest kingdome that we doo vunderstand to be in all Europe" (page 13), and descriptions of cities, towns, architecture: "in al places there be men excellent in architecture: and the necessaries that they have to build with is the best in the word" (page 16), of costume, religion, Kings and Emperors, taxes, the army, judicial system, navy, printing, fishing with ducks, artillery, marriage customs and criminals. As such, this is the first major survey of China in English, although travelers had been writing down their adventures to China since the first decades of the second millennium. The first account to appear in English was a rendering of Portuguese Galeote Pereira's 1565 description of China, as "Reportes of the Province of China" published by Richard Eden in his "History of Travayle in the West and East Indies", a translation of Peter Martyr, the second edition, published in 1577. The three woodcut Chinese characters/letters, found on pages 92 and 93, are THE FIRST TO APPEAR IN A EUROPEAN BOOK. Mendoza's account proved immensely popular and it ran to some 33 editions, in several languages, between 1585 and 1613. Actually Mendoza never visited China himself, but in 1562 he sailed for Mexico where he acquired original reports from Augustinian and Franciscan missionaries to the Philippines and China recounting the economics, politics and customs of those distant lands up to 1583. He also had access to a collection of works in Chinese acquired by Martin de Rada (or de Herrada) (1533-1578) in Fukien in 1575. The second part is devoted to three Spanish expeditions: that of Martin de Rada to the Philippines in 1575, Pedro de Alfaro's journey in 1578, and allegedly that of Martin Ignacio de Loyola in 1581, which was actually details of Tordesillas' voyage from Manila to China, [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        EPIPHANIUS. Ad physiologum. Eiusdem in die festo Palmarum sermo. (Greek & Latin text.)

      Ex Officina Christophori Plantini,, Anverpiae 1588 - (16), 124, (11) pp. With woodcut printer's device on title, 1 full-page portrait of St. Epiphanius & 25 half-page engraved illustrations after Pieter van der Borcht within typographical borders. Old limp vellum with title in old hand on spine. (Spine a bit dam., binding trifle soiled, faint drawing on front side, first free endpaper gone, a bit browned/foxed). Second edition. The first was published in Rome a year earlier. Rare. Though not an emblem-book proper Epiphanius Ad Physiologum had a great influence on emblem-literature, and is rightly recorded among emblem-books in all catalgoues.' (Praz). A good copy of the second edition of the Greek text of this important bestiary, wherein is a collection of allegories based on the qualities of animals. It includes bees, frogs, serpents and birds. The fine engravings have been attributed to Peter van der Borcht. Saint Epiphanius of Constantia, (born c. 315, near Eleutheropolis, Palestine¿died May 403, at sea; feast day May 12), bishop noted in the history of the early Christian church for his struggle against beliefs he considered heretical. His chief target was the teachings of Origen, a major theologian in the Eastern church whom he considered more a Greek philosopher than a Christian. Epiphanius¿ own principles were discredited by the harsh nature of his attacks. Epiphanius studied and practiced monasticism in Egypt and then returned to his native Palestine, where near Eleutheropolis he founded a monastery and became its superior. In 367 he was made bishop of Constantia (Salamis) in Cyprus. He spent the rest of his life in that post, spreading monasticism and campaigning against heretics. His orthodox views conflicted with those of the Roman emperor Valens, who governed in the East from 364 to 378 and who had embraced Arianism, but Epiphanius was protected by the veneration in which he was held for his sanctity. In 403 Epiphanius went to Constantinople to campaign against the bishop there, St. John Chrysostom, who had been accused of sheltering four monks expelled from Alexandria for their Origenistic views. Becoming convinced of the falsity of this and related charges made by Bishop Theophilus of Alexandria (who wanted to depose John), Epiphanius set sail for Cyprus but died en route. A zealous bishop and a revered ascetic, Epiphanius was lacking in moderation and judgment. These defects are reflected in his writings, of which the chief work is the Panarion (374¿377), an account of 80 heresies and their refutations, which ends with a statement of orthodox doctrine. His Ancoratus (374) is a compendium of the teachings of the church. His works are valuable as a source for the history of theological ideas. (Encyclopaedia Brittanica) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        LUCA. Tuscia nobiliss. Italiae Regio LUCAM urbem in mediterraneis ostentat Romanorum quondam Coloniam. Veduta assonometrica della Città di Lucca. Incisione su rame di Georg Braun.

      Incisione originale su rame tratta dal quarto volume de "Civitates Orbis Terrarum in aes incisae et excussae, et descriptione topographica morali et politica, illustratae", Coloniae Agrippinae, 1572-1617. Formato della tavola cm.35x52 (margini cm.42x55). Testo descrittivo, in latino, al verso. L'incisione è opera del calcografo fiammingo Franz Hogenberg. L'incisione è tratta dal quarto dei sei volumi che compongono l'Opera, stampato presumibilmente attorno al 1588. > Bedini / Fanelli, "Lucca, Iconografia della città", 40: "La stampa offre una rappresentazione fedele della città nello stato in cui si apprezzava nella seconda metà del XVI secolo .... Il valore della pianta è notevole come documento sia per la storia della città sia di un nuovo modo di rappresentazione della realtà urbana; in essa si individuano chiaramente la struttura a maglia regolare della città romana, la successiva fase di crescita medievale e la nuova dimensione conseguente la costruzione delle mura". Nuti, "Ritratti di città, visione e memoria tra Medioevo e Settecento": "la prima inedita immagine di Lucca, quasi sicuramente elaborata su una pianta tracciata durante i lavori di costruzione delle nuove mura, che si vedono per lunghi tratti già in piedi". Citti, "L'immagine della città nell'iconografia urbana del secolo XVI" [in "I palazzi dei mercanti nella libera Lucca del '500. Immagine di una città-stato al tempo dei Medici", a cura di Isa Belli Barsali]: "la prima rappresentazione con caratteri di scientificità poiché gli alzati si riferiscono a una base planimetrica verificata geometricamente. E' perciò utilissimo documento della città nel XVi secolo, sia per quanto riguarda le mura che per i palazzi, esattamente disegnati, alcuni messi in grande rilievo". Codice libreria 141734.

        Epigramme du XVIe sur l'assassinat du duc de Guise.

      - 1 manuscrit 1/2 In-folio fin XVIe (vers 1588-1589) Dérelié. Chiffré page 189. bon Manuscrit d'une épigramme anonyme, en latin, sur l'assassinat du duc de Guise : « Aut nihil aut Cæsar tentavit Guisius esse [Ou César ou rien : ce fut le but que Guise rechercha sa vie durant]: Et nihil et Caesar morte favente fuit [Grâce à sa mort il fut l'un et l'autre, et César et rien]. Cæsareo occubuit fato, virtutibus impar [Il subit le sort de César, sans être égal à son modèle] Cæsaris; patriæ hostis ut ille suæ [Mais fut comme lui mis au rang des ennemis de la Patrie]. Inventus, abiere doli, fraudesque nefandæ. [Alors on fut délivré de ses intrigues et de ses basses manoeuvres] Sic morte incipit Guisius esse nihil » [Voilà comment par sa mort Guise commença à n'être plus rien]. « Non potuit mortis insidias vitare senatu [César ne put éviter le piège mortel du Sénat], Cæsar dum primum quærit in Urbe locum [Dans sa conquête du pouvoir suprême à Rome]. Induit bis fictam dum sub pietate coronam [Le jour où par deux fois on le couronna fictivement, sous prétexte de piété] Detecta poenas proditione luit. [Sa trahison fut découverte et il eut son châtiment] Dissimiles vita, moribus, virtute fuerant [Différents par leur vie, leur moeurs, leurs qualités] Fato persimiles renituere pari ». [Un destin semblable les réunit dans une même célébrité]. Deux strophes liées l'une à l'autre par la référence à la devise de César Borgia reprise par le Duc de Guise. La première illustre le Aut nihil et la seconde le Aut Ceasar. Elles sont animées d'un esprit d'opposition à la Ligue.

        Mathematicae Collectiones a Federico Commandino Urbinate in latinum conversae, et commentariis illustratae.

      Pesaro, Girolamo Concordia, 1588 - Folio (306 x 205 mm), ff [4, including blank] 334 [recte 332], with woodcut printer’s device on title, several historiated woodcut initials and numerous woodcut diagrams in text; faint marginal waterstain on a few leaves at the end, slight marginal spotting on some gatherings, a very good copy in contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spine. First edition of Pappus’ Collection, translated with commentary by Federico Commandino. It is ‘by far the most important of Pappus’ works . without it, much of the geometrical achievement of his predecessors would have been lost forever. The Collection deals with the whole body of Greek geometry, mostly in the form of commentaries on texts which it is assumed the reader has to hand. It reproduces known solutions to problems in geometry; but it also frequently gives Pappus’ own solutions, or improvements and extensions to existing solutions. Thus Pappus handles the problem of inscribing five regular solids in a sphere in a way quite different from Euclid; gives a broader generalization than Euclid to the famous Pythagorean theorem, and provides a demonstration of squaring the circle which is quite different from the method of Archimedes (who used a spiral) or that of Nicomedes (who used the conchoid). ‘Perhaps the most interesting part of the Collection, measured by its influence on modern mathematics, is Book VII, which is concerned with the problems of determining the locus with respect to three, four, five, six or more than six lines. Pappus’ work in this field was called “Pappus’ problem” by René Descartes, who demonstrated that the difficulties which Pappus was unable to overcome could be got round by the use of his new algebraic symbols. Pappus thus came to play an important, if minor, role in the founding of Cartesian analytical geometry. And it is another mark of his originality and skill that he spent much time working on the problem of drawing a circle in such a way that it will touch three given circles, a problem sophisticated enough to engage the interest, centuries later, of both François Viète and Isaac Newton. ‘For his own originality, even if his chief importance is as the preserver of Greek scientific knowledge, Pappus stands (with Diophantus) as the last of the long and distinguished line of Alexandrian mathematicians’ (Hutchinson Dictionary of Scientific Biography). ‘He formally defined analysis and synthesis as they are still commonly applied in the solution of geometrical riders. Pappus stumbled upon the projective invariance of the cross-ratio of four collinear points and other related results reclaimed by modern projective geometry; and he gave the first recorded statement of the focus-directrix property of the three conic sections. He formulated the “centrobaric” theorems, frequently attributed to Paul Guldin (1577-1643), for calculating the volume and surface generated by a plane figure rotating about an axis in its own plane. He discussed theoretical mechanics, the equilibrium of a heavy body on an inclined plane, the use of the mechanical powers, and the construction of mechanical toys’ (Biographical Dictionary of Scientists). See DSB X pp 293-304 for an extensive discussion of the Collection. Adams P223; Pietro and Bonelli 151; Riccardi I 364 11 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Courtier of Count Baldessar Castilio, devided into foure Bookes

      London: John Wolfe, 1588. First Polygot Edition. With English, Italian and French text in parallel columns. Finely bound to style in full calf, stamped in gilt and blind, raised bands, plain end papers. First two leaves sized and remargined, small corner torn from A1, minor soiling and some faint dampstaining to leaves. Several leaves with light pencil markings to the margins. Contemporary owner's signature on the title page (Thomas Hutton 1565/6 - 1639). Despite the flaws an excellent copy overall. Ex Rosenbach collection, with card laid in. "On a chilly evening in early March 1507, high in the Appenine Mountains of northern Italy, a group of cultivated gentlemen and ladies sit around the fire in the audience chamber of the Duchess of Urbino discussing the qualities of the perfect courtier. Such is the setting of one of the most celebrated books of the Italian Renaissance...an international best-seller for a century after its first publication in 1528" (Albury). The Book of the Courtier is an allegory about the ethical responsibility of courtiers to guide and positively influence their prince, placing social responsibility upon the court for its leader's actions. Rulers and their courtiers must be educated in order to properly perform their functions; without judiciousness and wisdom, the system breaks down. Upon its translation to English, The Book of the Courtier became an important source for Shakespeare, who referenced Castiglione in multiple plays including the Henriad, tragedies such as Hamlet, and comedies such as Much Ado About Nothing and As You Like It.

Nicolau Clenardo (Nicolas Cleynaerts) nasceu na Flandres em 1493 e morreu em Granada em 1542. Licencia-se em Teologia na Universidade de Lovaina (1519). Passa por Paris, seguindo depois (1531) para Salamanca, em Espanha, onde se dedica ao ensino particular e público. Em finais de 1533, André de Resende, a convite de D. João III, trá-lo para Portugal, onde se destaca como professor das letras clássicas. É mestre do infante D. Henrique, arcebispo de Braga, quando este reside ainda na corte em Évora. Quatro anos mais tarde encontra-se a exercer o seu ensino em Braga. O sonho de aprender árabe e de pacificamente converter os Maometanos ao catolicismo levam-no para Granada e, dois anos depois, para o Norte de África (1540). Regressa a Granada em 1542, onde vem a falecer sem ter concretizado o seu sonho. As suas cartas, escritas em latim (publicadas em 1566 e 1606) são fundamentais para o conhecimento da sociedade portuguesa do século XVI, não só no campo cultural mas também nos campos económico e social.

Juan. 1620», together with stamps of a library, «Stiftsbibliothek St. Gallen 17407», inside the binding board and at the bottom of spine. Contemporary notes with grammar concepts of Greek and Latin, handwritten within the text and on the end-papers. Nicolau Clenardo (Nicholas Cleynaerts) was born in the Flanders in 1493 and died in Granada, Spain, in 1542. Graduated in Theology at the University of Leuven (1519). Then went to Paris, and later (1531) to Salamanca, Spain, where he was a private and public teacher. In late 1533, André de Resende, at the invitation of the King John III, called him to Portugal, where he was a professor of classical languages. As professor of the prince he resides in the Court Palace in Évora. Four years later he was called to the city of Braga. His dream of learning Arabic and peacefully convert to Catholicism the Muslim took him to Granada and two years later to North Africa (1540). He returns to Granada in 1542, where passes away without having achieved his dream. His letters written in Latin (and published in 1566 and 1606) are essential to the knowledge of society of the 16th century, not only in the cultural but also in the economic and social fields.

        Arnsberg

      Braun & Hogenberg 1588 - Original antique birds-eye-view map of Arnsberg in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, printed more than 415 years ago. This spectacular town plan was published by Braun & Hogenberg, Cologne, in their Liber Quartus Urbium Praecipuarum Totius Mundi, circa 1588. The image area measures 32 x 43 cm [12¾" x 17"] on a double-folio sheet, with generous margins on all side. There's a decorative title cartouche at the top center. The view is from the west, and a large castle sits on a hill above the town. A stout wooden bridge crosses the Ruhr, near the remains of an earlier bridge which had been destroyed or washed out. A helmsman steers a small merchant ship down the river, and in the foreground there's a group of figures, including a nobleman, knight, and guard. Another man herds three pack-laden donkeys along the road, on their way to the bridge. Original hand color. There's a full-page of Latin text on the reverse side, with a large initial cap. Condition: This map is in very good condition, with a vertical center fold, as issued. There's an old paper repair at the upper right, just to the north of the Kloster Winckhusen monastery. Please see the scans, which include a view of the reverse side, and feel free to ask any questions. This is an original, authentic antique map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine. It was compiled by Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg, publishers of history's most opulent collection of town maps and illustrations. This map would make a very handsome and dramatic display in your den or office. It would also make a perfect gift, and we'll include our helpful framing tips for your reference, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.

        Clarorum ligurum elogia

      ex Officina Hieronymi Bartoli, 1588. Cm. 25, pp. (8) 265 (3). Marchio tip. al frontespizio e da alcuni splendidi capilettera xilografici. Bella legatura coeva in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso. Alone alle prime ed ultime (in questo caso assolutamente marginale) cc., qualche trascurabile e sporadica fioritura, peraltro esemplare fresco e marginoso, nel complesso ben conservato. Uberto Foglietta (1518-1581), celebre storico genovese, scrisse fortunate opere sulla storia della città ligure, denunciando gli abusi dell'antica nobiltà locale. Allontanato dalla Repubblica, fu in seguito al servizio di Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia e del cardinale Ippolito d'Este. Revocato il bando, nel 1576 rientrò a Genova, dove fu nominato storiografo della Repubblica. Quest'opera raccoglie gli elogi di oltre 150 illustri personaggi genovesi e liguri. Non comune. Cfr. Lozzi, I, 2275; Iccu; non in Brunet e Graesse. .

        D. Magni Ausonii Burdig. viri consularis opera. A Iosepho Scaligero, & Elia Vineto denuo recognita, disposita, & variorum notis illustrata (...) Adiectis variis & locupletissimis indicibus.

      (Geneve), Typis Iacobi Stoer, 1588. 16mo. 2 volumes in 1: (XXXII),350;247,(1 blank),(14 indices) p. 18th century calf, back recently and decently restored. 13 cm (Ref: GLN-3290; Schweiger 21; Graesse I,259; Smitskamp p. 118) (Details: Back with 4 raised bands, recently and expertly restored. Morocco shield with gilt lettering in second compartment. Boards with blind triple fillet borders. Elaborately blind tooled rectangles on both boards. Edges of the boards gilt, edges of the bookblock dyed red. Title within woodcut borders, right edge of the title slightly cut short. The second volume has a title of its own, it contains 'Iosephi Scaligeri Iul. Caes. F. Ausonianarum lectionum libri duo', to which have been added notes of A. Turnebus, Hardianus Junius, G. Canter, J. Lipsius & E. Vinetus) (Condition: Endpapers renewed. First title slightly soiled and having a name on it) (Note: Decimus Magnus Ausonius of Burdigala (Bordeaux), ca. 310-394, was according to H.J. Rose an example of the senile degeneration of 4th century Latin literature, and the first glimmer heralding the full day of French literature. He wrote trifles, sometimes pretty or clever, often tiresome. (H.J. Rose, 'A History of Latin Literature', London 1967, p. 527/29). H.G. Evelyn White, the editor of the Loeb edition, is even more negative: 'As poetry (...) the great mass of his verse is negligible'. The chief value of Ausonius' work is according to him historical. (Loeb Classical Library, Ausonius, Cambr. Mass., 1919. p. VII) The 'Neue Pauly' is more positive: 'Ausonius repräsentiert eine Kultur der Bewahrung und des Erbes. Allenthalben greift er auf die griech. und lat. Lit. zurück, über die er souverän verfügt, und gestaltet anspielungs- und voraussetzungsreiche pretiöse Gebilde von formalem Raffinement'. (Der Neue Pauly, 2,334) Alexander Souter is in the Oxford Classical Dictionary full of praise: 'His numerous poems, written in various metres (...) are of considerable interest, in both subject-matter and style. There are over a hundred epigrams, some of which are in Greek and others translated from Greek. There are 25 letters. His correspondence with Paulinus of Nola is the most notable part of these. The Ephemeris includes many poems in various metres, dealing with daily life. The Parentalia is a collection of short poems in memory of deceased relatives of the poet. The Commemoratio Professorum Burdigalensium is of interest for the history of education. (...) This account by no means exhausts the list of minor poems, throughout which the author's minute knowledge of Virgil is apparant and his Christian faith is not obtruded. His most important poem is the Mosella which still attracts readers. It is a rhetorically fashioned laudatio in 483 hexameters and describes in considerable detail the various fish to be found in the river as well as some of the fine buildings on the banks and other features, the whole constituting a series of episodes, composed, like the rest of Ausonius' verse, according to rule'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 154) § The 2 French scholars mentioned on the title, Joseph Juste Scaliger,1540-1609, and Elie Vinet, or Elias Vinetus, 1509-1587, had probably nothing to do with the editing of this new Ausonius edition of 1588. It was produced, according to the very short preface, by the jurist P.B. Cestius I.C, or Petrus Baudoza Cestius, 1557-1627. It is further explained that it is based on the earlier edition of Scaliger, Antwerp 1575, with corrections of typographical errors. Vinetus had published an edition with his commentary in 1580) (Provenance: Name on title: 'Jacobus Levinus'. At the end of volume 1 written: 'John Rocherus, 1794') (Collation: ¶-¶¶8 a-y8 (minus blank leaf y8); A-Q8, R4 (minus last blank leaf R4) (Photographs on request)

        Il Tesoro della Sanità. Nel quale s' insegna il modo di conservar la Sanità, & prolungar la vita, et si tratta della natura de' cibi, & de' Rimedij de' nocumenti loro. Con la tavola delle cose notabili

      appresso Andrea Muschio, in Venetia 1588 - In-8° (168x110mm), pp. (16), 328, legatura settecentesca in p. pergamena rigida con titolo calligrafato al dorso. Impresa tipografica incisa su legno al titolo con un'aquila e un aquilotto in volo che fissano il sole radiante e, sullo sfondo, paesaggio con castello entro cornice figurata; entro un cartiglio spicca il motto Sic crede. Dedica a stampa a Sisto con sue armi pontificie incise su legno. Altra dedicatoria a donna Camilla Peretta. Fregi tipografici ornati o istoriati su legno. Qualche brunitura normale, lievemente rifilato al margine superiore. Bell'esemplare. Ristampa veneziana di questo trattato sugli effetti del cibo e del vino sulla salute, pubblicato per la prima volta in latino a Pesaro nel 1565 col titolo De bonitate et vitio alimentorum; la prima edizione in volgare apparse invece a Roma nel 1586. Il trattato, improntato al classico modello del regimen sanitatis, discorre dei più svariati alimenti (i frumenti, i vegetali, le carni, pesci, i condimenti, i vini) ed è, di fatto, un rifacimento in volgare di un inedito De victus et exercitationis servanda rationeconservato a Modena (Cfr. Kristeller, Iter Italicum, I, p. 387). Classico regimen sanitatis, l'opera si articola in due parti: la prima riguarda le sei cose non naturali (aria, moto e quiete, sonno e veglia, inanizione e replezione, accidenti dell'animo, cibo e bevande), la seconda esamina gli alimenti per generi e specie, indicando di ciascuno, per rubriche, nomi, qualità, scelta, giovamenti, nocumenti e rimedi. Chiaro, agile e divulgativo, il Tesoro divenne un prontuario diffusissimo, fu ristampato in vari luoghi e passò dall'originale in 4° a formati sempre più maneggevoli, in 8°, in 12° e perfino in 16°. (Tiziana Pesenti in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, vol. 42, 1993).Castore Durante (Gualdo Tadino, 1529-Viterbo, 1590), fu medico personale di Sisto V e studioso di botanica. Durling, 1333.

      Colonia 1588 - Incisione originale su rame tratta dal quarto volume de "Civitates Orbis Terrarum in aes incisae et excussae, et descriptione topographica morali et politica, illustratae", Coloniae Agrippinae, 1572-1617. Formato della tavola cm.35x52 (margini cm.42x55). Testo descrittivo, in latino, al verso. L'incisione è opera del calcografo fiammingo Franz Hogenberg. L'incisione è tratta dal quarto dei sei volumi che compongono l'Opera, stampato presumibilmente attorno al 1588. > Bedini / Fanelli, "Lucca, Iconografia della città", 40: "La stampa offre una rappresentazione fedele della città nello stato in cui si apprezzava nella seconda metà del XVI secolo . Il valore della pianta è notevole come documento sia per la storia della città sia di un nuovo modo di rappresentazione della realtà urbana; in essa si individuano chiaramente la struttura a maglia regolare della città romana, la successiva fase di crescita medievale e la nuova dimensione conseguente la costruzione delle mura". Nuti, "Ritratti di città, visione e memoria tra Medioevo e Settecento": "la prima inedita immagine di Lucca, quasi sicuramente elaborata su una pianta tracciata durante i lavori di costruzione delle nuove mura, che si vedono per lunghi tratti già in piedi". Citti, "L'immagine della città nell'iconografia urbana del secolo XVI" [in "I palazzi dei mercanti nella libera Lucca del '500. Immagine di una città-stato al tempo dei Medici", a cura di Isa Belli Barsali]: "la prima rappresentazione con caratteri di scientificità poiché gli alzati si riferiscono a una base planimetrica verificata geometricamente. E' perciò utilissimo documento della città nel XVi secolo, sia per quanto riguarda le mura che per i palazzi, esattamente disegnati, alcuni messi in grande rilievo". 100 gr.

        Declaration . sur sa prise des armes, pour la iuste defence des villes de Sedan, & Iametz, Frontiers du Royaume de France, & sous la protection de sa Majesté

      no printer 1588 - a bit of staining, surface abrasion to title-page, a little worming in the inner margin, A4 and C1 reinforced at inner margin, pp. 21 plus final blank leaf, 8vo, later (not new) wrappers. François de La Noue,1531-91, called Bras-de-Fer on account of his prosthetic iron arm, was one of the most celebrated generals of the age, and a champion of the Huguenot cause - Sedan being a refuge for Protestants fleeing the French Wars of Religion. In complex political and dynastic circumstances, La Noue sprang to the defence of the young Charlotte de La Marck, the heiress to the Duchy of Bouillon, the Principality of Sedan. There are several versions of this brief text, all rare, this the rarest. The regular edition, if so we may term it, was printed in Verdun, also in 1588, and there was another edition, with a false Verdun imprint, actually printed in London. An English translation appeared the following year, and there was also a German one. As a Protestant champion La Noue had a following in England, and he was in fact a confidential correspondent of Walsingham.

La lettera "Ai Romani" è un testo in lingua greca, scritto da Paolo di Tarso, l'Apostolo dei Gentili ( Romani 11, 13 ), indirizzata ai Cristiani dell'Urbe,da egli stesso ritenuti come "noti"in tutto il mondo per la loro grande fede.La più lunga di quelle da lui compilate,viene considerata la sua più importante eredità teologica e soprattutto composta, per spiegare che la salvezza si ottiene solo attraverso il Vangelo di Cristo.Il testo ha forma di lettera ma, data la sua complessità, non rientra in alcun canone epistolare specifico, per cui può, a ragione, essere definita una sorta di "Trattato in forma di lettera".

Rara cinquecentina giuridica piacentina dedicata nella sua interezza al diritto testamentario e ai fedecommessi (il fedecommesso è propriamente una disposizione testamentaria, già in uso nel diritto romano e oggi ammessa in termini molto ristretti, per cui un erede o un legatario è tenuto a conservare i beni ereditati e a trasmetterli alla sua morte ad altra persona indicata dal testatore). Il Pietra (Piacenza, 1512-ivi, 1608), illustre giureconsulto, fu uditore generale del cardinale Capo di Ferro in Romagna e patrocinatore legale in Roma, nonché Presidente del Consiglio Ducale su nomina di Ranuccio Farnese. Tra le altre sue scritture, il "Tractatus de iure quaesito per principem non tollendo". L'editore Bazzachi, o Bazachi, le cui pubblicazioni iniziarono nel 1576, fu il capostipite di una dinastia di tipografi che rimase attiva sino al 1746. Cfr.

        Iok en ernst: dat is; Allerlei deftige hofredenen, quinkslagen, boerteryen, raadsels, spreuken, vragen, antwoorden, gelikenissen; en al wat dien gelijkvormigh met de naam van apophtegmata verstaan wordt. ... 't Eerste deel [all published].Amsterdam, Jacob Lescaille, 1644. 4to. With engraved vignette on title-page. Contemporary vellum, traces of ties.

      STCN (7 copies of this issue); Te Winkel IV, pp. 327-328. First edition of the first and only volume of a collection of apophthegmata aptly titled Jok en ernst ("Jest and earnest"), by the cousin of Johan de Brune, the elder (1588-1658), who is now better known, but in his heyday less popular than his younger namesake. It includes 240 anecdotes all accompanied by extensive commentary. It is this combination of witticisms with a broad knowledge that gives this book its intellectual charm.Johan de Brune, the younger (1616-1649) was raised partly in England by his uncle Francicus Junius, a pioneer of Germanic philology, and partly in Amsterdam by the Dutch humanist Vossius. He was well-read at an early age, and was compared to Montaigne and Bacon by his contemporaries, but his early death prevented him from living up to these comparisons.A restored tear and some minor waterstains in the lower margins, the title-page slightly browned and some occasional spots, otherwise in very good condition. Binding somewhat soiled, but still very good.
