         Antique Master Print-RELIGION-GENRE-JESUS-HOUSE OF MARTHA-Bassano-Sadeler-1598

      - Antique Master Print, titled: 'Martha Martha solicita es - In Gratiam admodum ' - Christ in the house of Martha. Engraving on hand laid paper. Watermark: circle with a anchor. Description: Source unknown, to be determined. State: First state of 2. Ref: Hollstein 199. IconClass 73C7223. One of the famous "Kitchen"prints by Sadeler.Artists and Engravers: Made by 'Joannes Sadeler' after 'Jacopo Bassano'. Johannes Sadeler I (1550-ca. 1600) was a member of the engravers family Sadeler. The Sadeler family were the largest, and probably the most successful of the dynasties of Flemish engravers that were dominant in Northern European printmaking in the later 16th and 17th centuries, as both artists and publishers. The Sadelers were descended from "chasers," engravers of armour, from Aalst. Jan or Johannes de Saeyelleer or Sadeleer had three sons, all usually called "Sadeler": Jan I (1550 Brussels - 1600 Brussels or possibly Venice), Aegidius I (c. 1555 Brussels - c. 1609 Frankfurt am Main) and Rafael I (1560/61 Antwerp - 1628 or 1632). Another Sadeler, Marcus or Marco, was a printer and perhaps publisher who was working in Haarlem in c. 1586-87, and is presumed to be a member of the family, though it is not known where he fits in. Jan I was the father of Justus (c. 1572-c. 1620) and Marcus Christoph (active 1614 to after 1650). Aegidius I was the father of Aegidius II (c. 1570-1629 Prague). Rafael I was the father of Rafael II (1584 - 1627 or 1632), Jan II (c. 1588 - 1665 or later) and Filips (c. 1600, active to 1650). Aegidius II was the father of Tobias, who was active from 1670-75 in Vienna. Marten de Vos (1532-1603) was an Antwerp painter and draughtsman of the late sixteenth century. His travels to Italy made him adopt the Mannerist style. Jacopo Bassano (ca. 1510-1592) originated from Venice. He worked in the manner of Titian. His landscapes with biblical themes were very popular in the 17th. Century. Condition: Good, given age. Cut just outside the plateline, small damage lower left margin and some staining on the right side. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling.

Sottile fenditura alla cerniera del piatto anteriore restaurata esternamente e con rinforzo interno, sporadiche fioriture (più accentuate solo nelle prime e ultime carte) e lieve alone all'angolo delle prime carte, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Giovanni Botero (1543-1617) fu tra i principali scrittori politici del tempo; la sua Ragion di Stato rappresenta la massima espressione della reazione controriformistica agli scritti sullo Stato fioriti in tutto il Cinquecento (inevitabile il riferimento al Principe di Machiavelli). Botero teorizza un'azione del principe subordinata ai precetti della religione e finalizzata alla conservazione dello Stato. La ragion di Stato è infatti definita "notizia di mezzi atti a fondare, conservare e ampliare lo stato", da interpretare sempre sulla base del principio di prudenza. In appendice il testo di un'altra celebre opera boteriana, "Delle cause della grandezza delle città" e le aggiunte alla Ragion di Stato. Stimata edizione giolitina. Cfr.

         Thesaurus Litaniarum ac Orationum Sacer.

      Brussels: Rutger Velpius, , 1598. Cum suis advertus Sectarios Apologiis. Octavo (190 x 124 mm). Contemporary vellum with yapp edges, smooth spine with remnant of tawed leather, ties lacking, printed in red and black, title page with engraving vignette, coat of arms on verso. Pagination errors (p. 61 in place of p. 77, p. 34 in place of p. 343), final quires printed on inferior paper and red ink omitted from quires Y-Cc, final leaf pasted to cover. Of the Jesuit College of Louvain. With 39 engravings in the text. Extremities rubbed, inner hinges starting to pull away but still firm, lightly soiled, all quires from S onwards evenly browned as usual. An excellent copy, generally clean and well-margined. First edition. Thomas Sailly (c.1553-1623) was a Dutch writer and composer. He joined the Jesuits at the age of 27 and worked in Moscow for the union between the Catholic and Russian Churches. He later served as personal priest to Alexander Farnese (1545-1592), the Duke of Palma from 1586 to 1592, Governor of the Spanish Netherlands from 1578-1592, and one of the leaders of the Spanish Armada in 1588. Thesaurus Litaniarum ac Orationum Sacer is a devotional work with information about litany and prayers considered essential for Catholic observances. It was dedicated to Francisco de Mendoza (c.1550-1623), the Admiral of Aragon. It was put on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (Roman Index of Forbidden Books) after its contents were considered to be unorthodox. The attractive engravings are by the Flemish painter and etcher Peter van der Borcht (c.1530-1608).

         Corona e Palma Militare di Arteglieria

      Giovanni Antonio Rampazetto, Venice 1598 - FIRST EDITION. folio, ff. [iv] 58. Roman letter; woodcut portrait of the author in his study with military apparatus on title-page, woodcut historiated initials, 95 woodcut illustrations in text, printer's woodcut device on verso of last. C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on pastedown, Shirburn Castle blindstamp to first three ll, seventeenth-century inscription "Sutton Place"on flyleaf. Small ink splash to blank lower outer corner of t-p, title and verso of last fractionally dusty. A fine, crisp, very well margined copy (some fore-edges untrimmed), in high quality contemporary English tan calf, spine with raised bands gilt in compartments, covers gilt and blind ruled to a panel design, fleurons gilt at corners, gilt arabesque lozenge at centres, spine slightly worn at head and tail. A fine copy of the first edition of this important, rare and profusely illustrated work by Capobianco, Captain of the Bombardiers of the city of Crema, that brings together all the technical advances in artillery in the C16, dedicated to Antonio Prioli (future Doge of Venice) and Lunardo Rossetti. By the middle of the 16th century Italian theorists and military architects had perfected the bastioned system of fortification and the Italian method was an admired standard throughout Europe. "during the sixteenth century the emphasis shifts south of the Alps. And after 1550 Italian military writers dominate the field to the point of monopoly." (Horst de la Croix, 'The Literature on Fortification in Renaissance Italy'.) The use of cannons against these new bastioned fortresses required new tactical thinking, which Capobianco elaborates in this work. A veteran of many campaigns in both Italy and the Low Countries he was an expert gunner, though like many of his colleagues he was not a literary man, and his versatility and inventiveness are best shown by his plans and designs. A skilled bombardier, he presents the reader with a sweeping survey of the aims and techniques of artillery around the turn of the C16, starting with the technical use of cannon, their various types and specific purposes, the comparison of modern and 'antique' cannon, their manufacture, sighting etc. He then moves on to the tactics of artillery in defence and attack, the placement of cannons, their transportation, storage and the storage of munitions, the use of rockets and fireworks, and finishes with a brief but insightful description of 'modern' fortification, and bastion techniques. The binding of this copy is identical in style, with the same central arabesque tool, to a book bound for Thomas Knyvett c. 1610, see David Pearson, English book binding styles 1450-1800, page 9, fig. 1.3. Sir Thomas Knyvett (1539-1618), barrister, of a leading Norfolk family with estates in Lincolnshire, Suffolk, Staffordshire and Yorkshire started to build his splendid collection after the first flood of books and manuscripts from the monastic libraries. At his death his library numbered approximately 1,400 titles and 70 manuscripts on various subjects, as recorded in his library catalogue now in Cambridge University Library, which also received much of his collection in 1715. Favouring original texts, he became proficient in many languages, nurturing a particular love of Italian, owning at least 80 Italian books. Never a very rich man, the size of his library is extraordinary for the period, and it is likely that many of his books were obtained second hand. This binding is typical of those bound for his collection. Sutton Place, built in 1530 for Sir Richard Weston, is celebrated as a pioneer of the Renaissance style in England, an early Tudor House, innovative for the symmetry of its design and its Italianate terracotta decoration. It was later the home of J. Paul Getty. Not in BM STC It. Index Aur. 131.683. Riccardi I, 232. Cockle 673. Italian [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Descrittione de gli apparati fatti in Bologna per la venuta di N.S. Papa Clemente VIII. Con gli disegni de gli archi, statue, & pitture. Dedicata a gli Ill.mi Sig. del Reggimento di Bologna, da Vittorio Benacci stampator camerale

      4to (223x160 mm). [8] leaves and [8] plates, of which 2 are folding, designed and etched by Guido Reni. Signatures: A-B4. On the title page engraved arms of the city of Bologna. Woodcut initials. Modern stiff vellum with overlapping edges, red edges. Three heads and two jars drawn in red pencil by a contemporary hand on the verso of a plate. At l. A2 a contemporary hand has written a few lines to the epitaph dedicated to Clemens VIII, adding a reference to his death occurred in 1605. A different slightly later hand has added, on the last leaf verso, this long note: "fu giudicato il valore de velipassare 40m scudi d'oro / venne sua B.ne da Cento sino a Bologna per i campi havendo / il Regimento fatto fare una strada per mezzo de Periti, la quale / fu molto commoda per tutti essendo la pubblica cosi' cattiva per / le pioggie cadute che non si poteva andarvi. / Sua B.ne dono' a' Paggi che lo servirono nel tempo che / dimoro' in Bologna 1000 scudi d'oro che sono 75000 / de quattrini". Traces of a paper strip removed from the title page. Four plates slightly trimmed in the bottom edge. A very good copy on thick paper.Extremely rare first edition of this account of the festivities held in honor of the grand entry into Bologna of the Pope Clement VIII, en route back to Rome after a long visit to Ferrara.The etchings, designed and cut by Guido Reni, depict the triumphal arches and statues built for the event. These are Reni's first book illustrations. In answer to an apparently large demand, a second edition, bearing an additional plate (though not described in the text), was printed in Bologna by Benacci in 1599. Another edition, undated but surely issued slightly later, was printed in Bologna by Giuseppe Longhi under the title: Dissegni degl'apparati fatti in Bologna per la venuta di N.S. Papa Clemente VIII.A 23-year old Guido Reni was commissioned to design the city decorations and, in order to record his triumphal arches and columns, he executed a series of free sketches from which these etchings were produced.G.

Kart.mS.iS. *neuwertig* Die Diarien und Tagzettel des Kardinal-Erzbischofs von Prag, Ernst Adalbert von Harrach (1598-1667), die der Öffentlichkeit nun erstmals zugänglich gemacht werden, sind eines der umfangreichsten Selbstzeugnisse des 17. Jahrhunderts aus dem deutschsprachigen Raum. In ihrer inhaltlichen Multidimensionalität, ihrem Umfang und ihrer Aussagekraft sind sie vergleichbar mit prominenten Texten wie dem Tagebuch des Samuel Pepys, den Briefen der Lieselotte von der Pfalz oder den Memoiren des Kardinals de Retz. Die 54 überlieferten Jahrgänge, je zur Hälfte in deutscher bzw. italienischer Sprache verfasst, bilden eine bisher unbearbeitete, erstrangige Quelle für nahezu alle historisch arbeitenden Wissenschaften. Sie dokumentieren weit mehr als den Lebensweg und die Lebensräume eines Aristokraten als Amtsträger, im familiären Kontext oder in der adligen Gesellschaft der habsburgischen Erblande. Die Niederschriften eröffnen zugleich einen Blick auf die Geschichte der römischen Kurie insbesondere die Konklave der Jahre 1644, 1655 und 1667 , des Alten Reiches und Europas zwischen 1630 und 1667.

         Sefer HaMusar. [The book of conscience].

      Cracow Yitzchak ben Aharon 1598 - Quarto (19.5 x 14.5 cm), 140 leaves. Some stains and wear to edges of the few first and last leaves. Erased ownership inscriptions on title page and ownership inscriptions on empty last page. Berlin library stamp. New leather binding with gilt lettering. An important work on Jewish Ethics with Kabbalistic content. Rabbi Yehuda Klatz the First (Otzar HaRabbanim 6974; aka Judah ben Abrahahm Khalaz), was born c. 1450 in Spain. He left Castile of Granada in 1477 due to persecution of the Jews, passing through Malaga, then Honain, and finally settling in Talmasan (Tlemcen), Algeria in 1486, where he was appointed Dayan and was regarded as one of the great rabbinic figures of his time. This book was first published after his death, in Constantinople in 1537 (titled Sefer HaMefoar, with the name Sefer HaMusar as the subtitle), by his ancestor Rabbi Moshe Klatz, who was one of the Mekubalim in Safed; Rabbi Moshe added glosses according to the secrets (sod) of the Torah and the book of Zohar. This is a work of Jewish ethics, the Kabbalistic content of which was adapted primarily from the Zohar. Sefer HaMusar is essentially an abridgement of an earlier, extensive and scholarly work by Israel ben Josef ibn Al-Nakawa (Alnaque, d. 1391) named "Menorat HaMa'or". Klatz's adaptation made the book more accessible for the average person. The book is divided into twenty chapters and includes chapters on law, education, charity, repentance, trade, social behaviour, running a household, the Sabbath and other celebrations. This is the third edition of the book, printed by Yitzchak ben Aharon of Prostitz in Cracow. Only a few copies of this edition can be found in libraries around the world. Vinograd, nr: Cracow 205.

         La Novel Natura Brevium du Iudge Tresreverend Monsieur Fitzherbert..

      1598. London, 1598. with contemporary annotations. London, 1598. with contemporary annotations. Annotated Copy of a Work Highly Esteemed by Coke and Blackstone Fitzherbert, Anthony [1470-1538]. Rastell, William [1508?-1565]. La Novel Natura Brevium du Iudge Tresreverend Monsieur Anthony Fitzherbert Dernierement Revieu & Corrigee per Laucteur, Avecques un Table Perfect, Des Choses Notables Contenus en Ycel, Novelment Compose per Guilliaulme Rastall. London: In Edibus Thomae Wight, & Bonhami Norton, 1598. [xxxii], 271, [1] ff. Final leaf, a blank, lacking. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Recent period-style paneled calf, raised bands and blind ornaments to spine, endpapers renewed. Negligible light fading to spine. Title printed within woodcut architectural border. Moderate toning to text, early owner annotations to title page in neat small hand, early annotations to margins in several places, some slightly affected by trimming, but legible. A handsome copy. $2,500. * First published in 1534, the Nouvelle Natura Brevium is a manual of procedure written by a Judge of the Common Pleas during the reign of Henry VIII. Winfield notes that "Coke put it among the books which he considered most necessary and of greatest authority and excellency"; Blackstone considered it an authority as well. Compiled from the earlier Natura Brevia and the Registrum Brevium, it includes several original observations on the form and function of writs. Rastell's revisions include the addition of a table.

         Americae Sive Novi orbis Nova Descriptio - Por horden de don Antonio lopez de calatayud Herndo de Solis lohizo En Valladolid Anno de 1598':.

      - Kupferstich v. Hernando de Solis n. Abraham Ortelius aus Relaciones Vniversales del Mundo ., 1598 (1603), 34,5 x 47,5 Burden, The Mapping of North America, 129. - "Accompanying this Spanish translation of Giovanni Botero's popular Relaciones Vniversales del Mundo . were five newly engraved maps of the world and four continents. The book was a treatise on the political and geographical state of the world. - The map of America is a curious mix of the two similar maps by Abraham Ortelius of 1570 and 1587. The engraver, Hernando de Solis, chose to use the earlier Ortelius version of 1570 with the peculiar bulge to the south-western coastline of South America, and not the later more accurate map in which this was removed. - He did, however, incorporate the later map's new depiction of the Solomon Islands to the east of "Noeva Ginea". - He did not utilise any of the new nomenclature in North America on either the west or east coasts, most noticeably the addition of references to Virgina. - The only detail used from the 1587 map in North America is the broad river flowing southwards into the St. Lawrence River from a Lago Dagolesme. - In the lower corners are portraits of Vespucci and Columbus. - This well-engraved map is rarely in the book, which its itself scarce. - The inscription on the map shows that it was made in the year 1598 although the two-part book appeared in 1603. - The second of these parts is, however, dated 1599 and it is possible that an edition of this part alone occurred in that year. - Another explanation could be that the fact that it was published by the heirs of Diego Fernandez de Cordova, his death possibly causing the day". - The map with a lot of worm holes perfect restored mounted on old paper. - Very rare map. Sehr seltene Karte nach denjenigen von Ortelius für die spanische Ausgabe des populären Werkes von Botero, das in allen Ausgaben mit unterschiedlichen Karten versehen wurde. - Mit Plattenton, restauriert. - Zahlreiche Wurmlöcher und Wurmgänge hinterlegt, Fehlstellen sorgfältig nachgezeichnet. Auf altem Papier aufgezogen.

         Castello S. Angelo de Roma

      Amsterdam 1598 - Rarissima veduta di Castel Sant'Angelo tratta da "Le miroir du monde, ou Epitome du theatre d'Abraham Ortelis" di Z. Heyns edito ad Amsterdam nel 1598. La raccolta, un atlante, contiene della carte derivanti dalla produzione di Abraham Ortelius. Curioso il fatto che questa veduta sia la sola inserita nell'atlante. Xilografia, in perfetto stato di conservazione. A very rare 16th Century view of the St. Angelo Castle at the entrance to the Vatican. The work was published by Zacharias Heyns in his rare Le Miroir du Monde, ou, Epitome du Theatre d'Abraham Ortelius, published in Amsterdam in 1598. Zacharias Heyns was the son of Peter Heyns, who wrote the rhyming text for Ortelius' Spieghel Der Werelt, first published in 1577. Zacharias Heyns Le Miroir du Monde . . . was likely an attempt to continue the success of his father, although the maps bear no connection to Ortelius' work. As noted by Burden, all of the maps for this work are woodcuts, making it one of the last atlases to employ this means of printing. The atlas is highly sought after among collectors, prized for its rarity and the unique appearance of its maps. The second edition of 1615 is virtually unknown, with Koeman locating only 1 example at the Bibliotheque Nationale. M. Di Paola, Castel Sant'Angelo nelle sue stampe, p. 93, 29 (descritta come anonima). Dimensioni 175 137mm

Winfield notes that "Coke put it among the books which he considered most necessary and of greatest authority and excellency"; Blackstone considered it an authority as well. Compiled from the earlier Natura Brevia and the Registrum Brevium, it includes several original observations on the form and function of writs. Rastell's revisions include the addition of a table. A popular work, it went through numerous editions in Law French and English, the final appearing in 1794. It remains significant to this day for its descriptions of writs that were becoming obsolete in the early sixteenth century. The annotations range from few words to a sentence.

         Wahrafter, klarer, eigentlicher Bericht von der weiten, wunderbarer und die bevor getaner Reiss oder Schiffahrt bis in Indien... Aus Niderlandische sprach in hochteutch bracht durch Conrad Lew

      Extremely rare relation on Houtman's expedition to the East Indies in 1595-97, prepared by a yet un-identified shipmate, and describing the first incursion into the Spice Trade in the region; originally published in Dutch: Verhael vande Reyse de Hollandtsche schepen gedaen near Oost Indien (1597), of which Muller says "Nous ne connaissons qu'un seul exemplaire du Verhael", almost unobtainable. This is possibly the first edition in German -and the earliest obtainable edition-, printed the same year as Reschedt's edition (different in size and collation), although priority has not been established. Cornelis de Houtman (1565 - 1599) was a Dutch sailor, explorer, and merchant, usher to the era of Dutch trading and settling in Indonesia; he was also the younger sibling to Frederik de Houtman. In the early 1590´s, Houtman visited Lisbon, aiming to procure as much information on the Spice Islands as possible; upon his return to Amsterdam he -along with other partners- founded the Compagnie van Verre, forerunner of the Dutch East India Company, with the purpose of stopping the monopoly held by Portugal over the spice trade in the East Indies. Wasting no time, the company funded an expedition led by Cornelis, including three heavily armed ships and almost 250 men, which set sail from Texel on April 1595, arrived in 1596 at the port of Bantam (Java). The voyage itself was not profitable, and humanly disastrous, only 87 men returned, the ulterior gain was much higher, it ushered the Dutch entry into the trade in the East Indies; the Compagnie van Verre, along with others, merged to form the Dutch East India Company. Houtman's voyage is now known for being the starting point of the Dutch spice trade and colonization of Indonesia. "The failure of the Barents expedition to open up a route to the East by way of the North East Passage led the Dutch to attempt reaching the East by way of the Cape Route. The Expedition consisting of 4 ships under the command of Cornelis Houtman arrived at Bantam in Java in 1596, where they tried to get a cargo of spices. But hostilities with the Portuguese arose and the fleet was compelled to sail on. The circumnavigation of Java was the first recorded attempt of this kind by any European vessel. Much knowledge of the regions later to become the exclusive territory of the Dutch resulted from the voyage." (Cox I, p.262). Shortly after the return of the expedition, several relations would be printed, included, most famously, that of Lodewijcksz Prima pars descriptionis itineris nabalis in itineris in Indiam orientalem, Diarum Nauticum sue vera description trium navigationum admirandarum. Tiele, pp. 122.

         Descriptionis Ptolemaicae augmentum, sive Occidentis notitia commentario illustrata.

      Louvain: Gerard Rivius, 1598. Folio (11 7/8 x 7 5/8 inches). Roman and italic types, engraved title-page within fine historiated architectectural border, 19 double-page engraved maps (including a world map and 18 regional maps of the Americas), woodcut initials and head- and tailpieces (one insignificant marginal repair, occasional faint dampstains at lower margins). Contemporary pigskin over paste-board, covers elaborately decorated with a broad border of blind architectural roll-tools, surrounding small putti and floral tools and a central arabesque medallion on the front cover, and the ecclesiastical arms of a Bishop on the back cover, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, with the title in manuscript in one (small early repair at the head of the spine, traces of two pairs of ties, lightly soiled, extremities a bit scuffed). Provenance: 18th-century inscription "Geogr[aphy] III" on front paste-down; David Parsons (Collection of Voyages and Travels). ".as important in the history of the earliest cartography of the new world, as Ptolemy's maps are in the study of the old" (Phillips). An exceptional copy in a fine contemporary binding of "the earliest distinctively American atlas. It is as important in the history of the earliest cartography of the new world, as Ptolemy's maps are in the study of the old" (Phillips). Second edition, Rivius issue (edition shared with Johann Bogard). The maps are fine, early impressions: "Nova Francia et Canada," "Norumbega et Virginia," "Limes Occidentis," "Peruani regni descriptio," and "Chica sive Patagonica" all carry the date of 1597. First published by Johann Bogard in 1597. Cornelis van Wytfliet, secretary to the Council of Brabant, called his atlas of the New World a supplement to Ptolemy's "Geography", although the two works are actually quite separate. Dedicated to King Philip III of Spain, and covering the history of the first European encounters with the New World, its geography, and natural history, Wyfliet used as his source the works of Acosta, Hakluyt, de Bry and Ramusio. The fine maps, by an unknown engraver, include a double-hemispherical world map (Shirley 207) based on Rumold Mercator's influential 1587 map, eight maps of North America (Burden 100-107), ten maps of South America (Chile, Peru, two maps of Brazil, present-day Colombia and Venezuala, the northernmost coast of South America with the neighbouring Caribbean islands, Hispaniola, Cuba and Jamaica, and two maps of Central America), and one of Antarctica and are for many of the regions the earliest separate printed maps. Among the North American maps are the first map to use "Canada" in its title, the first printed map of central Canada, the first printed map devoted to California and the present-day Southwest of the US (embellished with a number of fanciful place names, based on Spanish sources); one of only three 16th-century printed maps of Florida, which includes surrounding regions such as Cuba and the coast north to the Outer Banks, and which is one of the few 16th-century maps of America to record any geographical information on inland areas; and the map "Norumbega et Virginia," only the second printed map to use the name Virginia, and which remained the most accurate map of the East Coast from the Carolinas to Canada until the publication of de Laet's map of the same area in 1630. Wytfliet's atlas was an immediate success, and six further editions, including three with French text, were published within the next two decades. Bogard issued two editions in 1597, the second correcting errors of pagination and with the maps bound in with the related sections of text.

         (City / Town Plan - Toledo, Spain): Toletum

      Braun & Hogenberg, 1598. Near fine, early color, latin edition (applicable text verso). Very decorative town plan of Toledo, Spain from this edition of the famous city atlas. Cherubim, palace, temple all present as separate images. These plans are well-known to collectors, and this particular item is increasingly uncommon. The full atlas was published in 6 volumes, in various editions, from 1572-1617. It was a collaborative work between many artists, engravers and cartographers (for a nice discussion of the history of this atlas, see Goss's THE MAPMAKERS ART, pp. 260-5). The map image measures 12.75x20 inches..
