         Brasilia et Peruvia. Ad Strenuu et Magnificu Dnm. D. Theodoricu Echter.

      1593 - Antwerp 1593 copper engraved map; overall 42 x 55 cm; plate 36 x 41,5 cm. fold as issued; paper evenly toned with some some faint discolouration; some faint off-set; additional printer’s creases; small marginal spit top c’fold; o/w exc. cond. One of the most decorative and early map of the South America! The map shows part of Central America and all of South America, with Tierra del Fuego being part of a large land mass that merges into Australia. The map is embellished with various sea creatures as well as sailing ships and native vessels. Within the map, various indigenous animals and people are depicted, some in conflict with conquering foreigners: there are two scenes, where the intruders are not fairing particularly well! The title is above the map with scroll work to either side. Nice strong impression, with watermark; on verso Latin text. Cornelius De Jode was the son of Gerard de Jode (1509-1591), a Dutch engraver, printer, printseller, publisher and cartographer. In 1578, he published an atlas ‘Speculum Orbis Terrarum’ which was re-published by his son, Cornelius, in 1593. Cornelius’ map of South America deviates from his father’s map in as much as the title is no longer within the map as well as omitting two insets of smaller maps; some of the decorative elements have been omitted as well. Maps both by father and son are very hard to come by as Speculum did not prove to be such a success as Ortelius’ atlases and the publication was very small. [ref: 3253]

         The profitable arte of gardening: to which is added much necessarie matter, and a number of secrets, with the phisicke helps belonging to each hearbe, and that easily prepared.

      London: Edward Allde, 1593. 4to (19.2 cm, 7.55"). [8], 164 pp. (lacking pp. 57/58, 65–68, 83/84, & final 92 pp. appendix); illus. Early, uncommon edition of the => first general treatise on gardening in English: an Elizabethan florilegium of growing advice and medicinal lore, compiled by an author who also published under the amusing semi–nom de plume "Didymus Mountain." For this popular work, Hill selected and "Englished" quotations and information from classic texts including those of Pliny, Cato, Theophrastus, Aristotle, Dioscorides, Galen, among others; it was originally published ca. 1558 under the title A Briefe Treatyse of Gardening.    The text, much of which is printed in black letter, is illustrated with three attractive in-text woodcuts of mazes and an enclosed garden (the latter first used on the title-page of the first edition, but appearing here in the text instead), as well as with a full-page diagram of "a proper knot for a Garden, where is spare rome enough, the which may be set either with Time or Isope, at the discretion of the Gardener." The appendices mentioned on the title-page (on beekeeping, husbandry, and tree grafting, under a separate title-page and with separate pagination) are not present in this copy.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         ESTC S104120; Henrey, I, 200; Hunt Botanical Cat., 167; Luborsky & Ingram, Guide to English Illustrated Books, 13495; Graesse, III, 279. Not in Adams or Brunet. Early 20th-century half blue cloth and marbled paper–covered sides, spine with gilt-stamped title; spine and edges sunned to tan, cloth showing some minor bubbling. Lacking pages 57/58, 65–68, and 83/84 as well as the final appendix as described above. Two leaves with unobtrusive, neatly done repairs and one with slightly more noticeable repair, not obscuring sense; one leaf with small hole and short tear in upper outer corner, not touching text. Center of volume with small area of worming at lower inner portions, generally in between lines but occasionally touching a few letters. Pages age-toned, some with mild to moderate waterstaining in most outer margins, with last portion more generally and darkly stained; scattered spots of mild staining and foxing elsewhere. => Imperfect, and so priced, but still scarce and desirable.

         In Sphaeram Joannis de Sacro Bosco. Commentarius. Nunc quarto ab ipso auctore recognitus, & plerisque in locis locupletatus.

      Lugduni, Sumptibus fratrum de Gabiano, 1593. - Petit in-4 de (4) ff., 551 pp., (22)ff. d'index, (1)f. de privilège. Nombreuses figures gravées sur bois. Belles marges (210 x 150 mm). Titre sali, légères mouillures à l'extrémité des marges de certains feuillets et un pâle mouillure fin d'ouvrage sans gravité. Vélin de l'époque. Belle édition commentée de la Sphère de Jean de Sacrobosco par le mathématicien et astronome jésuite Clavius (1537-1612). Jean de Sacrobosco, professeur de la Sorbonne au XIIIe siècle, connu aussi sous les noms de Jean de Halifax et John of Holywood, y fait une synthèse de Ptolémée et des mathématiciens arabes du IX eme siècle, Al-Battani et Al-Farghani. Dans son traité de la Sphère, il expose aussi les fondements de l'astronomie pré copernicienne, sans parti pris apparent. Le commentaire de Clavius, paru pour la première fois en 1570, est une présentation fidèle de l'astronomie ancienne et moderne. Celui-ci enseigna longtemps au collège des jésuites à Rome et fut à l'origine du calendrier grégorien (1582). Si Clavius qualifie Copernic "d'éminent restaurateur de l'astronomie dans notre siècle que la postérité fêtera et admirera toujours avec reconnaissance comme un second Ptolémée" son attitude à l'égard des theses de ce dernier reste prudente (citation de E. Knobloch sur l'oeuvre de Clavius). Surnommé « l'Euclide de son siècle » il fut également l'ami de Galilée et bien que resté attaché tout au long de sa vie au système de Ptolémée il valida finalement ses observations astronomiques en 1610. Bel exemplaire dans son vélin du temps.

         Coltura de gl'ingegni

      In 4to; pergamena semirigida coeva (mancano i legacci); pp. (16), 115, (1 bianca). Marca tipografica al titolo. Timbro a secco della Theological Society of Connecticut. Ex-libris del grande studioso Luigi Balsamo. Ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE IN ITALIANO dei primi dodici capitoli del primo libro della celebre Bibliotheca selecta (1593). Questa parte dell'opera, che divenne la più diffusa, apparve in prima edizione latina solamente nel 1604. La traduzione è dello stesso Possevino, il quale riorganizzò la materia in cinquantasei capitoli per facilitarne la lettura e il reperimento delle varie topiche (la ridisposizione del primo capitolo della Bibliotheca selecta che l'autore compì in questa occasione divenne definitivo e fu mantenuto anche per l'opera maggiore a patire dalla seconda edizione del 1603). Il manoscritto fu affidato dal Possevino a Mariano Lauretti, il quale lo pubblicò dedicandolo al barone Oswal Tropp. Nel privilegio Possevino ricorda di aver concesso la licenza editoriale dell'opera al tipografo vicentino Giorgio Greco (cfr. L. Balsamo, Venezia e l'attività editoriale di Antonio Possevino (1553-1606), in "La Bibliofilia", XCIII/1, Firenze, 1991, pp. 65-66 e 88).Più dettagliata e approfondita della Ratio studiorum gesuitica, la Coltura de gl'ingegni definisce con chiarezza gli obiettivi (sapienza e religione), i mezzi (interni: sviluppo psicofisico; esterni: insegnanti, libri, esperienza) e gli ostacoli di una corretta educazione (errori di metodo e corruzione dello studente attraverso il peccato con conseguente diminuzione delle sue facoltà intellettuali). Il libro discute quindi dei doni distrubuiti da Dio (in proporzione alla capacità di ciascuno, ed in modo da tenerlo adeguatamente impegnato), dei passaggi attraverso i quali si può risalire alle cose più elevate, infine dei libri e delle istituzioni culturali, che sono strumenti insieme di edificazione religiosa e promozione scientifica (cfr. A. Arcangeli, Postfazione, in: A. Possevino, "Coltura degl'ingegni", Sala Bolognese, 1990, pp. 5-13).Per il conseguimento di una corretta educazione, il cui scopo principale è quello di raggiungere la virtù cristiana, Possevino spiega quindi il curriculum ideale, descrive numerosi collegi e università europee, soffermandosi in particolare sui metodi d'insegnamento del Collegio Romano, discute di stampa, vendita e conservazione dei libri, censura, ecc. (cfr. G. Fell, a cura di, Pädagogische Schriften von Antonio Possevio, Freiburg i.Br., 1901, pp. 368-391).Di grande interesse sono anche i capitoli in cui Possevino spiega come gli insegnanti debbano prendere in esame le diverse inclinazioni individuali degli studenti, per sviluppare le loro capacità di apprendimento e far fruttare al meglio i loro talenti. "Zu dem umfassenden Schrifttum, das jene Bildungsauffassung in ihrer universalen Ausrichtung dokumentiert, gehört jener erste Teil der Bibliotheca Selecta, den Possevino 1598 in Vicenza in einer gesonderten Ausgabe unter dem Titel Coltura de gl'ingegni erscheinen liess. Es geht darin umfassend um die "doni che ne gl'Ingegni dell'huomo ha posto Iddio". Diese Wissensgaben, deren Mannigfaltigkeit und deren Ausrichtungen ("inclinationi"), werden gemäss der Widmungsadresse von Mariano Lauretti als "Cosmo" ganzheitlich gefasst. Wer sich mit diesem Kosmos befasst, entdeckt dessen ganzen Reichtum, der sich als ein nobles "teatro" darstellt und dem die "maraviglie chiuse nell'huomo" entsprechen. Der "intelletto" und der "ingegno" halten diesen Reichtum zusammen. Sie sind dem Menschen deshalb eingegeben, "per poter contemplare, et affaticarlo nelle speculazioni, che poi ne servono all'operare con modi virtuosi"" (W. Oechslin, Architektur als "Scienza speculativa", in: "Architettura è scienza. Vincenzo Scamozzi (1546-1616)", Vicenza 2003, p. 23 e sgg.).Antonio Possevino, nato a Mantova da una famiglia di orefici, dopo aver ricevuto un'educazione umanistica, divenne tutore di due principi Gonzaga, futuri cardinali. Entrò nella Compagnia di Gesù nel 1559. Fra il 1573 e il 1577 a Roma fu segretario del generale dell'ordine, Everard Mercurian. Gregorio XIII lo inviò come nunzio apostolico in Svezia, per indurre alla conversione Giovanni III che aveva mostrato inclinazioni verso il Cattolicesimo, quindi in Polonia, Lituania, Moravia e Transilvania, dove contribuì all'edificazione di seminari. Caduto in disgrazia presso papa Sisto V, fu esiliato a Padova, dove passò gli ultimi anni della sua vita dedicandosi alla stesura di diverse opere di carattere pedagogico e bibliografico. Nel 1574 cominciò la Bibliotheca selecta, la sua opera più importante, che fu completata solo dopo vent'anni di ricerche e compilazioni. Dopo di essa si dedicò all'Apparatus sacer (1603), bio-bibliografia di migliaia di autori ecclesiastici.Edit16, CNCE34701; A. de Backer-Ch.

         Aviso de Cazadores y Caça [bound after] De Exequendis Mandatis Regnum Hispaniae, quae rectoribus Ciuitatum dantur, & hodie continentur in titulo

      Second edition of this exceedingly scarce work on the chase and falconry, one of the earliest and most important of those written in Spanish in the 16th century; the work focuses on the laws of hawking and hunting, it was the first Castilian printed book on hunting and the first to deal with its legal and moral aspects. The treatise was first published in 1543 in Alcala, which is now scarce. "Avendano wrote the Aviso to show the Castilian aristocracy its responsibilities regarding hunting. He argued that hunting was made legal by natural law and ius gentium and could be controlled by the monarch only when hunting threatened the public interest" (John Marshall Carter, "Medieval Sport," in Journal of Sport History, vol. 9, no. 1, Spring 1982, p.71). Uhagon says of the present edition "Los ejemplares de esta segunda edicion son quiza mas raros que los de la primera". A rare book, of whish we find copies in the United States at University of Pennsylvania, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Library of Congress, UC Berkeley, and National Library of Medicine. The only comparable example to have appeared at auction was sold in 1992, lot 320, Sotheby´s, £5,500. Palau 197084 (first edition), 197089. Schwerdt II, p.46. Jeanson 1266. Uhagon 297.
