Bei Leonhard Fronspergers Kriegsbuch handelt es sich um das bedeutendste Quellenwerk über das frühneuzeitliche Kriegswesen. Es beschreibt Kriegsrecht und Kriegsartikeln, Wehr- und Heeresordnung, die Gefechtslehre der Truppe sowie die Verwendung der Artillerie. Das Buch behandelt aber auch die Bewaffnung, Kanonen, die Ausrüstung, das Proviantwesen sowie Feldverschanzungen und den Kampf um befestigte Plätze. Neben ausführlichen Darstellungen und Beschreibungen der Kriege wieder den Türken, enthält der letzte Teil auch Predigten von Luther gegen die Türken. Leonhard Fronsperger (ca. 1520-1575) gilt als der bedeutendste deutsche Schriftsteller des Militärwesens des 16. Jahrhunderts. 1566 wurde er im Türkenkrieg vom Kaiser zum Feldgerichtsschultheiß erhoben. Sein Kriegsbuch war sehr beliebt und enthielt derart viele als wichtig und unentbehrlich angesehene Darstellungen, dass es selbst 1819 noch nachgedruckt wurde. Jost (Jodocus) Amman (1539 - 1591) war ein Zeichner, Kupferätzer und -stecher, Formschneider, Maler und Buchautor. Der gebürtige Schweizer kam 1561 nach Nürnberg, erhielt 1577 das Bürgerrecht der Stadt und lebte dort bis zu seinem Tod. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten und fruchtbarsten Zeichner und Formschneider seiner Zeit. Er gab zahlreiche Bücher mit Holzschnitten heraus, unter anderem Stammbücher, Turnierbücher, Kriegsbücher, Wappenbücher, Trachtenbücher, Kräuterbücher, Arzneibücher, Tierbücher und Hebammenbücher. Außerdem schuf er Illustrationen zur Bibel, zu Ausgaben antiker und zeitgenössischer Autoren und zu Sachbüchern verschiedenster Bereiche. Das wohl bedeutendste Kriegsbuch der frühen Neuzeit, das mit den weltberühmten Kupferstichen und Textholzschnitten Jost Ammans reich geschmückt ist, ist heute äußerst selten.

         Antique Print-PLAN-BRAGA-BRACARA AUGUSTA-PORTUGAL-Braun-Hogenberg-1596

      - Antique print, titled: 'Nova Bracarae Auguste Descriptio.' - A bird eye's view / plan of Bracara Augusta in Portugal. A 16th-century map of Braga, when the city was enclosed by its mediaeval wall. The large building in the centre is the Cathedral, while the Episcopal Palace and courtyards can be seen above the cathedral and the ancient Castle of Braga. Etching / engraving with original hand colouring on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This plan was first published in the 1596 ed. of the famous six volume town book : 'Civitatis Orbis Terrarum.', published in Cologne, 1572-1617 by Georg Braun. The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. The sixth and the final volume appeared in 1617. This great city atlas, edited by Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg (he created the first four volumes of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum. The fifth and sixth volume was created by Simon van den Neuwel (Novellanus), eventually contained 546 prospects, bird-eye views and map views of cities from all over the world. Braun was greatly assisted in his project by the close, and continued interest of Abraham Ortelius, whose Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was, as a systematic and comprehensive collection of maps of uniform style, the first true atlas. The Civitates, indeed, was intended as a companion for the Theatrum,but appeared even more succesfull. Over a hundred of different artists and cartographers, the most significant of whom was Antwerp artist Georg (Joris) Hoefnagel (1542-1600), engraved the copper-plates from drawings. He not only contributed most of the original material for the Spanish and Italian towns but also reworked and modified those of other contributors. After Hoefnagel's death his son Jakob continued the work for the Civitates. A large number of Jacob van Deventer's (1505-1575), also known as Jacob Roelofszof, unpublished works, plans of towns of the Netherlands were copied, as were Stumpf's woodcuts from the Schweizer Chronik of 1548, and Munster's German views from the 1550 and 1572 editions of his Cosmographia. Another important source for maps was the Danish cartographer Heinrich van Rantzau (1526-1599), beter known under his Latin name Rantzovius, who provided maps of Northern Europe, specially of Danish cities. The Civitates provided a uniquely comprehensive view of urban life at the turn of the sixteenth century. Other sources were the maps of Sebastian Munster from around 1550 and , and of. Braun added to the maps figures in local dress. This feature was anticipated in Hans Lautensack's etched view of Nuremberg, 1552, those groups of citizens in the rural foreground add further authenticity to the highly accurate topographical details of what was effectively Germany's cultural capital at that time. Braun's motives for adding figures to the views, however, went further: as stated in his introduction to book 1, he believed, perhaps optimistically, that his plans would not in consequence be scrutinized for military secrets by the Turks, as their religion forbade them from looking on representations of the human form.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Frans Hogenberg' after an anonymous artist.

Surprisingly rare complete set of the greatly expanded second Dutch edition of the collected works of René Descartes, translated from the Latin by Jan Hendrik Glazemaker, here adding well over 300 pages of additional works. Descartes (1596-1650), one of the most brilliant and original thinkers of all time, was born and educated as a Catholic in a Protestant region in France's Loire valley, but worked as a military engineer for the Dutch Protestant army in his early years and returned to the Dutch Republic in 1628 to study further at the universities there. He remained for twenty years, taking advantage of the Republic's intellectual freedom and Amsterdam's position as the most important centre of the world book trade. Descartes established our modern notions of empirical science and built the foundations for the work of Spinoza, Newton, Leibniz and many others. His work ranged widely over the fields of philosophy, mathematics, mechanics, light and optics (including practical aspects, such as lens grinding and telescopes), astronomy, ballistics, anatomy, sexual reproduction, music, "passions of the soul" and much more, all covered in the present collected works. In nearly every field he made major contributions to knowledge, often debunking widely held beliefs. Volume 4 contains his correspondence.The principal works named in the four titles above are accompanied by numerous additional works Some browning at the end of the main text in volume 1 and in the middle of volume 2. Still in very good condition with further only occasional minor browning or foxing and a small marginal tear in one title-page, and with large margins. The bindings slightly dirty but still very good. The definitive Dutch edition of Descartes's works: nearly 3000 pages in 4 volumes.

Texto a dos columnas con apostillas marginales. Portada con anotaciones manuscritas. Facsimilados 7 folios. Juan López de Marieta (Vitoria, 1555-Madrid,1611), fue un notable hagiógrafo dominico, autor de numerosas obras religiosas entre las que destaca este importante santoral, al estilo de los flos sanctorum. La Primera Parte es emisión de la Historia ecclesiastica y flores de santos impresa en Cuenca, en casa de Iuan Masselin, en 1594, pero con distinta portada y cambio en los preliminares. La Segunda Parte se la dedica a doña Beatriz de Haro, marquesa de Carpio, de origen vasco, que abandonó la vida cortesano por el retiro en el convento de dominicas de Córdoba, siguiendo el modelo de otras aristócratas. La última obra, el Tratado de las fundaciones de las Ciudades y Villas principales de España, se acerca a una corografía civil, en la que intenta, siguiendo a cronistas como Esteban de Garibay, debatir en torno al origen de los nombres de las localidades más importantes de España. Así, trata de Vitoria, San Sebastián, Fuenterrabía y Vergara; Vizcaya; Pamplona, Estella, Olite y Tafalla, entre otras, con una visión novedosa en cuanto al análisis de su origen y toponimia. La Historia eclesiástica de Marieta, pese a haber sido puesta en tela de juicio por la crítica ilustrada por el problema de las fuentes sobre las que se sustenta, fue relevante en su época, como muestra, por ejemplo, el que sirviera a Miguel de Cervantes como fuente para su comedia El rufián dichoso. Referencias.¿ Palau, nº. 151859, señala «Es difícil reunir las cinco partes», y de hecho gran parte de los ejemplares conservados en bibliotecas públicas carecen de alguna parte o mútilos de varios folios.

L'opera si compone di tre parti: Descrittione del Real Tempio, et Monastero di Santa Maria Nuova di Monreale (già pubblicata a Roma da Francesco Zanetti nel 1588), che descrive il monastero da un punto di vista architettonico ed storico-artistico, ivi comprese le modifiche apportate alla fine del XVI secolo; Vite de gli Arcivescovi, Abbati, et Signori di Monreale; ed infine Sommario de i privilegi dell'Arciuescovato di Monreale, ossia l'elenco dei privilegi concessi da imperatori, pontefici e re alla diocesi di Monreale dal 1174 al 1592. Il libro fu pubblicato sotto il nome del Lello, poeta, matematico e segretario al servizio del cardinale Ludovico de Torres, più tardi arcivescovo di Monreale, ma molti repertori ne attribuiscono in realtà la paternità a quest'ultimo. II. Prima edizione. Questa seconda opera, benché venduta a parte, risulta molto spesso legata insieme a quella del Lello. In alcuni esemplari si trova unita all'opera una mappa xilografica della diocesi di Monreale, incisa nel giugno del 1597 da un certo Ludovico Rondanini per conto del Torres (Descrittione dell'Arcivescovato di Monreale con le sue Terre, e di tutto il Territorio diviso in settantatre Feghi.), che in realtà fu stampata separatamente.

      In Vinegia, presso Altobello Salicato 1596 - Cm. 15,5, cc. (24) 187 + 1.c.b. Legatura antica in piena pergamena molle con traccia di titoli su tassello al dorso. Sguardie posteriori. Tracce di polvere al margine esterno (più marcate in alcune carte centrali), fioriture sparse, qualche macchietta e sporadici piccoli aloni. Nel complesso esemplare più che discreto. Leonardo Fioravanti (1517-1588), medico bolognese, fu una figura atipica nel panorama scientifico del tempo in quanto annoverabile tra i pochi seguaci di Paracelso. Così la voce F. nel Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (vol. 48, a cura di Anna Mainardi): "Si distinse per un accentuato interesse alla sperimentazione che lo indusse a trascurare nella pratica la rigida separazione consuetudinaria dei ruoli dei medici, degli speziali e dei cerusici. Il suo tentativo di fare del medico il protagonista dell'intero processo terapeutico, dalla diagnosi alla preparazione dei farmaci alla chirurgia e il fatto che egli scrivesse in volgare i suoi trattati, seguendo anche in ciò l'esempio di Paracelso, furono spesso considerati lesivi della dignità della professione medica ed esposero il F. a denigrazioni e persecuzioni". L'opera è divisa in cinque libri: "Nel primo de' quali si tratta de' secreti più importanti nella professione medicinale. Nel secondo s'insegnano molti secreti appartenenti alla Cirugia; et si mostra il modo d'esercitarla. Nel terzo si contengono i secreti più veri, et più approvati nell'arte dell'Alchimia. Nel quarto si scrivono molti belletti che usano le donne per apparer belle. Nel quinto si comprendoni i secreti più notabili in diverse arti et esercitij". Cfr. Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Äußerst seltener Mode-Einblattdruck.Las mich mein Lobben tragen / darnach thu du nit fragen / ist doch nur Affenspil. Original-Kupferstich.

      ohne Verleger, Ort oder Jahr. (Köln, J. Bussemacher?), vor 1596.. Format des Abdruckes ca. 31 x 23,5 cm, Blattgröße ca. 38,2 x 27,3 cm. Montagereste am linken Rand, beide Ränder etwas gebräunt, das Blatt mit sehr vereinzelten kleinen Braunspuren und schwache Knickspuren, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. Nicht bei Faust, Harms oder Drugulin. - Äußerst selten und von uns nur in der Staatsbibliothek Berlin nachweisbar. Der Druck nimmt die im 16. Jahrhundert besonders in den Niederlanden unter Bürgerlichen beliebte Modeerscheinung des Tragens großer Halskrausen auf die Schippe. In Person eines Affens, der besagte Krause um den Hals trägt und dem Betrachter des Blattes einen Spiegel vorhält, erzählt unser Einblattdruck, daß der Modenarr mit seinem wahren Ebenbild im Spiegel als das wiedergegeben wird, was er wirklich ist: ein Affe. „Besich in diesem Spiegel fein wie gros und breit dein Lobben (d.i. eine Halskrause) sein, hast Du sie grosser dan ich thu, bleib du ein Af, las mich mit Rhu", Darunter zwei Dreizeiler: „An meim geschlecht ich nit verzag / Das ich die grossen lobben trag / Dan nachzuthuen ist affenspil / Deer brüder mein sindt noch gar vil / Deen halt Ich diesen Spiegel fuer / Damit ein Aff den andern ruer." Oben links eine Notenzeile: Cantat Simia (Lasse fare mj), in der oberen rechten Kartusche ein Zweizeiler in Latein, Italienisch, Französisch und Niederländisch, den Schluß nahelegend, daß das Blatt für den Export (aus dem Raum Köln?) entstand: „Simia quod facinent homines imitatur ut ipsum / Simia sic hominum quilibet esse cupit. - La cose me piacce coussi / Parque tu lasse fare mi. - Faisant la Singe uns grand meruaille / Pend dnus homme à soy pareille. - Het past tverstant end reden mijn / Hoe dat den mensch en Sinne mach fijn." - Die rechte Hälfte einer Folge von 2 Einblattdrucken (das Gegenstück zeigt einen Narren mit Spiegel, siehe SBB) deren Motiv in Th. de Bry's ‚Emblemata saecularia' (1596) in verkleinerter Wiedergabe und unter Herausnahme der Bildunterschrift (bei de Bry stattdessen: Aspice ut ingentes...) verwendet wurde, auch verwendete de Bry dort das Wort ‚Krös' statt ‚Lobben' (siehe Hollstein 240-287).

      17th century. Oil on vellum, framed in gilt frame. Good condition, frame slighly damaged. (31x24cm). On the back in ink some notes on the genealogy of the Van Dam family. Willem van Dam (Amersfoort 1596 - Leiden 1673) was a mennonite who fled in 1618 with his brother Peter to Holstein where he founded Friedrichstadt on the Eider. He was the son of Peter van Dam and Digna van Leemputte. Peter van Dam was a son of Pieter van Dam and Marie Verborch (also written as Verburgh). Digna van Leemputte was a daughter of Jan Jacobsz. van Leemputte and Catharina de Berges ten Essendelle (famous as Trijn van Leemput in Utrecht for demolishing the castle Vredenburgh in 1577).

When this city was besieged by Ernesto and his cousin Raimondo Montecuccoli on the 13th of August 1629 Van Dam decided to surrender the city a day later. Van Dam was prosecuted and banished for life for this betrayal. The Staten of Utrecht changed that verdict in 1631. In 1635 he became mayor of Amersfoort again and would serve 11 times more in this capacity. In 1648 he became member of the Staten-Generaal of the Netherlands. In the disastrous year 1672 he fled with his second wife Johanna, daughter of Rombout Hogerbeets, to Leiden, where he would die a year later.

Allde, Frampton, an En glish merchant, was imprisoned by the Inquisition for many years. This is the first of several translations he made from Spanish texts relating to the New World. It was his most successful effort, undertaken to offset the idle hours of confinement, and was printed in three editions. His readership in Britain was clearly more interested in the pharmacology offered by the newly discovered continent than the more politically and expansionists texts he later offered.

Es beschreibt Kriegsrecht und Kriegsartikeln, Landsknechte, Wehr- und Heeresordnung, die Gefechtslehre der Truppe sowie die Verwendung der Artillerie. Das Buch behandelt aber auch die Bewaffnung, Kanonen, die Ausrüstung, das Proviantwesen sowie Feldverschanzungen und den Kampf um befestigte Plätze. Neben ausführlichen Darstellungen und Beschreibungen der Kriege wieder den Türken, enthält der letzte Teil auch Predigten von Luther gegen die Türken. Leonhard Fronsperger (ca. 1520-1575) gilt als der bedeutendste deutsche Schriftsteller des Militärwesens des 16. Jahrhunderts. 1566 wurde er im Türkenkrieg vom Kaiser zum Feldgerichtsschultheiß erhoben. Sein Kriegsbuch war sehr beliebt und enthielt derart viele als wichtig und unentbehrlich angesehene Darstellungen, dass es selbst 1819 noch nachgedruckt wurde. Jost (Jodocus) Amman (1539 - 1591) war ein Zeichner, Kupferätzer und -stecher, Formschneider, Maler und Buchautor. Der gebürtige Schweizer kam 1561 nach Nürnberg, erhielt 1577 das Bürgerrecht der Stadt und lebte dort bis zu seinem Tod. Er gilt als einer der bedeutendsten und fruchtbarsten Zeichner und Formschneider seiner Zeit. Er gab zahlreiche Bücher mit Holzschnitten heraus, unter anderem Stammbücher, Turnierbücher, Kriegsbücher, Wappenbücher, Trachtenbücher, Kräuterbücher, Arzneibücher, Tierbücher und Hebammenbücher. Außerdem schuf er Illustrationen zur Bibel, zu Ausgaben antiker und zeitgenössischer Autoren und zu Sachbüchern verschiedenster Bereiche. Das wohl bedeutendste Kriegsbuch der frühen Neuzeit, das mit den weltberühmten Kupferstichen und Textholzschnitten Jost Ammans reich geschmückt ist, ist heute äußerst selten.

         Grammatiqi suraya aw kaldayata (.)]. Grammatica Syriaca, sive Chaldaica.

      Rome, Giacomo Luna, Tipografia Medicea Orientale (in Typographia Linguarum externarum), 1596. - 4to. (44), 480 pp. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title. First - and likely only - edition. The first large-scale Syriac grammar, the third ever written (following those of Caninius, 1554, and Widmanstetter, 1555). Composed by the Maronite priest Jiris Ibn Mikha'il ibn 'Amira, it was printed by the Maronite scholar Ya'qub ibn Hilal (Giacomo Luna), who worked at the Medicean Press under Raimondi and was responsible for the Arabic and Syriac publications issued between 1590 and 1594. In 1595 he started printing on his own, and possibly took over some of the types of the Vatican Press. The work is listed as a Propaganda Press imprint ("olim typis nostris impressi") in Amadatius's 1773 "Catalogus", which shows the continuity that was felt to exist between the Medicean Press, the intermediate stage of Luna and Stephanus Paulinus, and the Propaganda Press. In the preface Raimondi is mentioned as the instigator of the work. - The 24 pt Syriac "serto" types were cut in 1590 by Jean Cavaillon for the Medicean Press. In the beginning a Syriac alphabet is presented, in three different scripts: "estrangelo" (this word possibly here used for the first time), "serto", and a Nestorian script possibly in type. This Nestorian script, a cursive form of estrangelo, is introduced here for the first time. In 1633 a slightly different type-face was used for Bellarmino's Catechism. - Some browning and brownstaining throughout, as common; the first few quires loosened. 18th century library stamps to title page; bookplate of Flavio Camillo Borghese, Prince of Sulmona (1902-80), on pastedown. Quite rare; a second edition, supposedly produced in 1645 (cf. Nasrallah, p. 10), is not attested in libraries. Edit 16, CNCE 1541. Adams A 965. BM-STC Italian 356 (s. v. "Jiris"). Brunet I, 231. Zenker, p. 132, no. 1534. Smitskamp, PO 184. Vater/Jülg 388. Nestle 13. Duverdier, Impressions, 198. OCLC 7238840.

         Raunanza de' fiumi.

      Girolamo Discepolo, 1596. In 4°, cc. (12). Frontespizio e testo all'interno di un bordo xilografico. Marca editoriale al frontespizio. Cartone moderno, lievi bruniture, ma nel complesso bella copia. RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE dedicata dal traduttore Giacomo Antonio Bianchini a Nicolò Brognonico (Verona, 1 dicembre 1595). Il poema originale latino, "Fluviorum conventus", già pubblicato da Discepolo nel corso dell'anno precedente, si trova sulle ultime 4 carte del volume, dopo la versione italiana. Poco si conosce di Flaminio Valerini, poeta Veronese del quale sono noti numerosi versi occasionali, in prevalenza indirizzati a nobili locali. Probabilmente era in buoni rapporti con diversi signori veneziani come Leonardo Mocenigo e Marino Grimani (cfr S. Maffei, Verona illustrata, Milano, 1825, III / 2, p. 428). Modifica 16, CNCE 33542 (solo 2 copie a Verona); L. e M. Carpanè Menato, Annali della Tipografia Veronese del Cinquecento, (Baden-Baden, 1989), p. 527, n. 611..

         Epistolarum Astronomicarum libri. Quorum Primus hic illustriss: et laudatiss: Principis Gulielmi Hassiae Landtgrauii ac ipsius Mathematici Literas, unaque; Responsa ad singulas complectitur.

      Uraniburg, (Ex Officina Typhographica Authoris - on colophon), 1596. 4to. Nice 19th century half calf with raised bands and gilt title-label to spine. Corners bumped, otherwise very nice. First four leaves with a bit of old ink-spotting, mostly to top of f.2, affecting headline, which is still fully legible. Otherwise an exceptionally nice, clean, and fresh copy with only the lightest of brownstaining to blank upper margin of some leaves. Ff. B(1)&2 with a neatly closed tear, affecting a few words, but to loss. Printed on somewhat primitive paper (made by Brahe himself), of varying quality, which also goes for the print (also printed by Brahe himself), which also varies in clarity and quality. (40), 309 pp. + 1 leaf with Brahe's full-page woodcut printer's device. With many tables and wodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text, two of them full-page, depiting Uranienborg (the plan on slightly larger paper, which is folded at the edge), one 2/3 page being a map of Hven (constituting the third map of Hven, here in the very first printing). The very rare first edition, first issue - printed by Brahe himself on his private press, in few copies only, on paper from his own paper mill - of this milestone of astronomical literature, containing detailed instructions for the construction of astronomical instruments. The work contains many of Brahe's seminal observations for the first time in print and also the highly important map of Hven in the first printing, which cemented Brahe as a pioneer in the technique of cartographic measurement. Friends of Brahe, in particular Henrik Rantzau, urged Brahe to publish his correspondence, which was known to contain information of crucial importance to the development of astronomy in the 16th century. Brahe accepted and began printing of his early correspondence. The printing of this is known to have started long before 1590, however - as with all of Brahe's major works from the printing-office on Hven, it took many years before the book was finished. The contents mainly consist in the letters exchanged with Landgraf Wilhelm of Hessen and his Court-astronomer, Christoffer Rothmann. Included in the book is a description written in German of the buildings and instruments found at Hven."This is the early correspondance of Brahe with the learned Landgraf William of Hesse containing detailed instructions for the construction of astronomical instruments. Brahe's observatory at Uraniborg, on the island of Hveen in Denmark, is shown; here the the last of the pre-telescope observations were made, which enabled Kepler to discover the laws of planetary motion. Printed on Brahe's private press in few copies". (Dibner)."[C]orrespondence with other scholars was an important mechanism by which Brahe communicated his results, became known to others, and managed his scholarly reputation. His letters were also used to acquire astronomical data, collaborate with others, and conduct disputes over priority and credit. In common with many scholars of the period, Brahe circulated some of his correspondence with a wider audience in manuscript. But Brahe also acknowledged the significance of letters for his astronomical enterprise by publishing the letters he exchanged with Landgrave Wilhelm IV of Hessen-Kassel and the Landgrave's astronomer, Christoph Rothmann, as the "Epistolarum astronomicarum" (1596); as this title suggests, further volumes of astronomical letters, exchanged with other correspondents, were planned and begun, but remained unfinished at Brahe's death in 1601." (Mosley). The later so famous third map of Hven is printed here for the first time. It was printed again in two years later, in Brahe's "Astronomae instauratae mechanica" and was later reproduced by Kepler, in 1627, on the title-page of his "Tabulae Rudolphinae". "The map must have been drawn at the earleist in 1592, as it shows the paper mill and system of ponds completed in that year... The 1596 map, according to the German cartographic historian Herman Richter (1939), "makes a wholly modern impression", and, in the use of triangulation, "Brahe stands out also as one of the pioneers in the technique of cartographic measurement" (Richter 1939: 58)." European Rural Landscapes, p. 216). The work proved to be highly influential and sought-after, so more copies that the very limited number of the first printing were in immediate demand. Thus, new issues appeared in 1601 and 1610. The first issue is extremely scarce in private circulation and only few copies are known on private hands.

      Frankfurt, Andree Wechsels Erben, 1596. - Äußerst seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des bedeutenden Gesandtschaftsberichts in vier Briefen, gesammelt erstmals 1589 in Paris erschienen. Ogier Ghislain de Busbecq (1522 - 1592) war Diplomat in den Diensten der Habsburger in England wie in Spanien. "Im Herbst des Jahres 1554 schickt Ferdinand I. Busbecq als Botschafter zu Süleyman I. nach Konstantinopel, damit er einen Waffenstillstand mit dem Osmanischen Reich aushandele, um das geschwächte Reich der Habsburger zu entlasten. Busbecq bricht am 23. November 1554 von Wien auf und reist mit seinem Gefolge im Wagen zunächst nach Buda, von dort auf der Donau nach Belgrad, anschließend wieder auf dem Landweg über Nisch, Sofia und Adrianopel nach Konstantinopel. Am 20. Januar 1555 in Konstantinopel angekommen, findet Busbecq den Sultan jedoch nicht in seiner Residenz vor. Er erfährt, dass sich Sultan Suleiman gerade auf Reisen in Kleinasien befindet, so dass er ihm weit in den Osten, in die alte Königsstadt Amasya, nachreisen muss. Nach dreiwöchigem Warten reist Busbecq ihm über Ankara hinterher, um schließlich am 7. April 1555 in Amasya in einer Audienz mit dem Sultan einen sechsmonatigen Waffenstillstand auszuhandeln. Als er den Sultan endlich antrifft, hat dieser augenscheinlich gerade keine Lust auf Friedensgespräche und weist ihn mit den Worten 'Güzel, güzel', 'schön, schön', ab. Zum Trost schenkt er Busbecq ein paar Tulpen- und Hyazinthenzwiebeln, dazu einige Fliederpflänzchen. All dies bringt Busbecq mit nach Hause und führt diese Pflanzen unter Vermittlung seines Freundes Charles de l'Écluse (latin.: Carolus Clusius) dadurch in Westeuropa ein. Auf ihn geht die Bezeichnung der Tulpe (türkisch und persisch Lale) als Tulipam zurück: anscheinend hatte er den Namen des Turbans (türkisch tülbent), an dem Blüten oft getragen wurden, für den Namen der Pflanze selbst gehalten" (Wikipedia). Im November 1555 verlässt Busbeck Wien erneut und bricht wieder nach Konstantinopel auf, wo er bis 1562 für sechs Jahre als Botschafter in Konstantinopel wirkt. "His letters contain perhaps the most interesting of all accounts of Turkish life, and his description and analysis of the Ottoman state can hardly be superseded" (Blackmer). – Aus der Bibliothek des sachsen-weimarischen Kammerjunkers, Schriftstellers, Agrarökonomen und Gelehrten Georg August von Breitenbauch (1731-1817), mit dessen gestoch.

        Reliqua Librorum Friderici II. De arte venandi cum auibus, com Manfredi regis additionibus. Ex membranis vetustis nunc primùm edita. Albertus Magnus De Falconibus, Asturibus, Accipitribus.

      Augsburg, Ioannes Praetorius, 1596. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful red full morocco binding with five raised bands to richly gilt spine. Gilt ornamental borders to boards and centrepieces consisting in a gilt crown. All edges of boards gilt and with blind edge-decorations. Corners, hinges, and capitals neatly restored. A small stamp to title-page. Title-page browned and spotted and a - mostly vague - dampstain up until p. 36. A small repaired loss to outer blank margin of one leaf of index, far from affecting print. Otherwise internally very nice, clean and bright. (16), 414 pp. + 1 leaf with printer's device. With the large double-page woodcut illustration depicting the emperor on his throne with the two kneeling falconeers presenting their falcons to the emperor. Scarce first edition of this seminal classic on hawking and falconry, considered the best and most comprehensive treatise on the subject as well as the first real ornithology text, which has survived to the present day. The work is hailed as "the first zoological treatise written in the critical spirit of modern science" (Review of Casey Wood's new edition of the work, Stanford University Press) and arguably constitutes the greatest ornithological work of the Renaissance, paving the way for modern zoological science. Falconry was probably brought to Europe with the fall of the Roman Empire, when the Huns and Alans arrived from their eastern homelands. Though practiced in antiquity and favored in China and the Near East, falconry reached its zenith under the medieval Arabs, who probably introduced it in Sicily. Frederick II of Hohenstaufen, King of Sicily and Jerusalem, King of the Germans and Holy Roman Emperor, ruling most of what is now Italy and Germany as well as various territories around the Mediterranean (including Malta and Palestine), wrote his groundbreaking work about falconry in order to preserve the more than two-thousand-year-old cultural technique of falconry, introduced through Sicily to the rest of Europe. Based upon Arabic sources and his own intensive observations and studies about the anatomy, life, and learning patterns of the magnificent birds of prey, Frederick II compiled this monumental treatise, which in its factual and systematic presentation is unmatched in its time and still highly significant for falconry today.The astounding work is generally considered the lengthiest written work by any reigning monarch of Europe until his time and the defining standard of this unique form of hunting with birds. Appropriately, the eagle became the heraldic symbol of Frederick's Hohenstaufen dynasty as emperors - an ancient Roman ensign inherited by the Germanic peoples.The book was written in the 1240'ies and is dedicated to Frederick's son, Manfred, who later added notes to the work. The original manuscript is now lost, but other manuscript versions exist. This first printed version of the text is meticulously edited by Jean Vesler and contains both Manfred's notes and Albert the Great's treatise on hunting with falcons and hawks that he wrote during his stay in Rome. Frederick II knew of all important literature on the subject, also Arabic, and took all of this into consideration when writing his seminal treatise. However, almost all of his work is completely original and is based upon his own experiments and observations. For example, the text explains how he covered the eyes of the vultures because he wanted to find out if birds used the sense of smell while hunting and how he experimented with eggs to see if they would hatch only by the warmth of the sun. The result is a truly scientific book that rests upon facts and a scholastic work that approcahes its subject matter from Aristotle and onward, with the scepticism and minuteness necessary for establishing modern zoological science.
