Kalbslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckeln mit Blindprägung und intakten Metallschließen. Zu I: Zweite deutsche Ausgabe seines naturphilosophischen Hauptwerkes; ein Kompendium des damaligen naturwissenschaftlichen und technischen Wissens. Es enthält die Übersetzung seiner berühmten Abhandlungen "De rerum varietate" und "De subtilitate". - U.a. mit Kapiteln zu: Alchemie, Botanik, Zoologie, Anthropologie, Physik, Astronomie, Edelsteinen, Geographie (auch Amerika), Handwerk und Technik, ferner Astrologie, Okkultismus, Wahrsagerei und Magie. - Cardanus (1501-1576), der berühmteste Arzt seiner Zeit, versucht der Medizin eine von der galenischen und hippokratischen Tradition unabhängige wissenschaftliche Grundlage zu geben. Durch seine Horoskope für gekrönte Häupter erlangt er großes Ansehen. Als Mathematiker führt er vermutlich die ersten Berechnungen mit komplexen Zahlen durch und entwickelt die Grundlagen der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie. Er beschreibt erstmals das nach ihm benannte "Kardangelenk" bzw. die "Kardanwelle". Für die Chemie bedeutend ist seine Theorie der Verbrennungsvorgänge, mit der er die Grundlagen für die spätere Phlogistontheorie legt. Als Naturphilosoph vertritt er die kosmogonische Vorstellung und versucht die Koexistenz von christlicher Glaubensgewissheit und Wahrheit wissenschaftlicher Forschung zu beweisen. Die große Bedeutung Cardanus' liegt in der Verbindung zwischen seinem enzyklopädischen Wissen und seinem schöpferischen Denken begründet, mit der er inspirierend auf zukünftige Forschergenerationen wirkte. - DSB 3, 64; VD16 C938; Ferguson I, 142; Wellcome I, 1303; Rosenthal 210. - Zu II: Vierte Ausgabe. Übersetzung der Bücher 7 bis 11 seiner "Historia naturalis" durch J. Heyden. - Enthalten ist die Beschreibung der Menschen, vierfüßigen Tiere, Fische, Vögel und Schlangen. - Die Holzschnitte von Amman stammen u.a. aus dem Tierbuch von 1569, dem Ständebuch, dem Kriegsbuch von Fronsberger sowie aus verschiedenen Bibeln. - VD16 P3556; Nissen ZBI 3190; Becker, Amman 7e. - Beide Titel in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt. - Stellenweise gering fleckig und mit kleinem Wasserrand am oberen Steg. Teil I ohne das letzte weiße Blatt der Vorstücke sowie Titelblatt mit kleiner Fehlstelle (mit wenig Buchstabenverlust) und Rand sauber angefasert. Die ersten und letzten Lagen mit Wurmspuren. Vorsätze und 2 weiße Blätter mit Eintragungen von alter Hand. Einband etwas berieben, bestoßen und mit Wurmgängen. Kapitale und Ecken teils sorgsam restauriert.

         LITTLETON'S TENURES In ENGLISH. Lately Perused and Amended

      London: Thomas Wight, 1600. 1st edition thus, i.e., by this publisher [Beale T-61; STC 15777]. Modern full brown leather binding with gilt stamped title lettering to spine. Red edgestain. Binding - Fine. Text block - VG, some browning to paper and with an early signature of one "Gerard" to t.p. Possibly Thomas Gerard, 1st Baron Gerard (c. 1564 - 15 January 1618) who was a Staffordshire and Lancashire landowner and politician, a member of six English parliaments for three different constituencies. Although a prominent member of the Essex faction in the reign of Elizabeth I, he avoided involvement in the Essex Rebellion and received greater honours, including a peerage, in the reign of James I. [Wiki].. 142, [2] ll. A Chart of Possessions, p. 2. 8vo: A - S^8. Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is a considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of a set of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books, and when necessary, hypothetical cases.

         In Epistolam B. Pauli Apostoli ad Hebraeos Commentarii. Cum quinque indicibus, quorum primus continet quaestiones Scripturae, secundus regulas, tertius eiusdem Scripturae locos explicatos, quartus est rerum atque uerborum, quintus Euangeliorum totius anni, in usum concionatorum.

      Köln, in officina Birckmannica sumptibus Arnoldi Mylii, 1600. 697 Seiten, XXXVIII unpag. Bl. Klein 8°. Pergamenteinband der Zeit. Das Buch bietet einen Kommentar zum Brief an die Hebräer aus dem Neuen Testament. Francisco de Ribera (Franciscus Riberae) verteidigt die bis Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts gültige Auffassung, dass der Brief von Paulus stammt und dementsprechend dem Corpus Paulinum zuzurechnen wären. Unter anderem wird auch die Frage der Autorschaft (im Proömium: De Autoritate et Autore) breit diskutiert. Der Kommentar reicht weit ins Detail und verweist für jede These auf die entsprechenden Stellen. Teilweise wird auf Griechisch und Hebräisch zitiert. Die in diesem Buch dargelegten Thesen entspringen wohl den Vorlesungen, die der Autor gegen Ende seiner Lebenszeit in der Universität von Salamanca hielt. Das vorliegende Buch erschien posthum. De Ribera starb in Salamanca 1591; das Privileg wurde in Segovia im Jahr 1593 erteilt. An erster Stelle ist der (heute als apokryph geltender) Brief selber abgedruckt. Es folgt der Kommentar, der bei weitem den größten Teil des Buches einnimmt und mit Verweisen am Rand versehen ist. Der Kommentar bezieht sich stets an konkrete Stellen und folgt in seinem Aufbau dem Brief selber. Er kann als Kommentar \"ad locum\" gelesen werden, wurde also wahrscheinlich als Nachschlagewerk konzipiert oder zumindest für einen solchen Gebrauch ausgelegt. An letzter Stelle sind fünf Indices abgedruckt: einer bezüglich Fragen der (heiligen) Schrift, ein weiterer mit den \"Regeln\" (anscheinend werden hier Übersetzungskriterien dargestellt), einer mit Stellenangaben, ein Sach- und Wortverzeichnis und ein Index mit Verweisen auf Inhalte des Kirchenjahres. Der Text hat einen großen Literaturwissenschaftlichen Wert, da viele wichtige Themen behandelt werden (Autorschaft, Translationstheorie, Authentizitätsprüfung, Stilvergleich…). Der Autor war ein angesehenes Mitglied des Jesuitenordens. Im Pergamenteinband wurde eine mittelalterliche Handschrift wiederverwendet. Es handelt sich hierbei wohl um ein Blatt aus einer Liederhandschrift mit gregorianischen Gesängen in Quadraturnotation und auf der Textgrundlage lateinischer Psalmen (Unxit te Deus…). Das Buch ist vollständig. Mit gefärbten Kopfschnitt. Der Rücken des Einbandes ist beschädigt (es fehlt ugf. die Hälfte desselben), ansonsten befindet sich das Buch in einem zeitgemäß guten Zustand.

         Polus Arcticus sive Tract. Septentrionalis. Coloniae, ex Officina Typographica Jani Bussemechers

      1600. Interessante mappa delle regioni polari artiche, basata su quella del Mercator del 1595. Il Polo Nord è mostrato come grande roccia circondata da quattro isole separate da fiumi. Il nord magnetico è rappresentato come una roccia isolata separata appena fuori dalla massa polare. Nell'America del Nord è riportato un riferimento alla California (California regio, sola fama Hispanis nota), curiosamente indicata a nord di El stretto de Anian. La mappa mostra i tentativi di Frobisher e Davis di individuare i passaggi settentrionali per Asia. La mappa è incorniciata da un disegno floreale con quattro cerchi posti uno in ogni angolo che contengono il titolo, le Isole Fær Øer, le Isole Shetland e la mitica isola della Frislanda. Important early map of the North Polar regions, based upon Mercator's map of 1595. The North Pole is shown according to legend as a large rock in a giant whirlpool and surrounded by four islands that are separated by rivers. The magnetic north is depicted as a separate island rock just outside the polar mass. In North America is an very early reference to California (California regio, sola fama Hispanis nota), curiously shown north of the El streto de Anian. The map depicts the attempts of Frobisher and Davis to locate the northern passages to Asia. The map image is surrounded by a floral design with four roundels in each corner. These contain the title, the Faeroe Isles, the Shetland Isles, and the mythical island of Frisland. Burden, P.D. 134; Meurer, P.H. (Cologne) Qua 79

Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is a considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of a set of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books, and when necessary, hypothetical cases.

Possibly Thomas Gerard, 1st Baron Gerard (c. 1564 - 15 January 1618) who was a Staffordshire and Lancashire landowner and politician, a member of six English parliaments for three different constituencies.

         In Epistolam B. Pauli Apostoli ad Hebraeos Commentarii. Cum quinque indicibus, quorum primus continet quaestiones Scripturae, secundus regulas, tertius eiusdem Scripturae locos explicatos, quartus est rerum atque uerborum, quintus Euangeliorum totius anni, in usum concionatorum.

      in officina Birckmannica sumptibus Arnoldi Mylii, Köln 1600 - Das Buch bietet einen Kommentar zum Brief an die Hebräer aus dem Neuen Testament. Francisco de Ribera (Franciscus Riberae) verteidigt die bis Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts gültige Auffassung, dass der Brief von Paulus stammt und dementsprechend dem Corpus Paulinum zuzurechnen wären. Unter anderem wird auch die Frage der Autorschaft (im Proömium: De Autoritate et Autore) breit diskutiert. Der Kommentar reicht weit ins Detail und verweist für jede These auf die entsprechenden Stellen. Teilweise wird auf Griechisch und Hebräisch zitiert. Die in diesem Buch dargelegten Thesen entspringen wohl den Vorlesungen, die der Autor gegen Ende seiner Lebenszeit in der Universität von Salamanca hielt. Das vorliegende Buch erschien posthum. De Ribera starb in Salamanca 1591; das Privileg wurde in Segovia im Jahr 1593 erteilt. An erster Stelle ist der (heute als apokryph geltender) Brief selber abgedruckt. Es folgt der Kommentar, der bei weitem den größten Teil des Buches einnimmt und mit Verweisen am Rand versehen ist. Der Kommentar bezieht sich stets an konkrete Stellen und folgt in seinem Aufbau dem Brief selber. Er kann als Kommentar "ad locum" gelesen werden, wurde also wahrscheinlich als Nachschlagewerk konzipiert oder zumindest für einen solchen Gebrauch ausgelegt. An letzter Stelle sind fünf Indices abgedruckt: einer bezüglich Fragen der (heiligen) Schrift, ein weiterer mit den "Regeln" (anscheinend werden hier Übersetzungskriterien dargestellt), einer mit Stellenangaben, ein Sach- und Wortverzeichnis und ein Index mit Verweisen auf Inhalte des Kirchenjahres. Der Text hat einen großen Literaturwissenschaftlichen Wert, da viele wichtige Themen behandelt werden (Autorschaft, Translationstheorie, Authentizitätsprüfung, Stilvergleich ). Der Autor war ein angesehenes Mitglied des Jesuitenordens. Im Pergamenteinband wurde eine mittelalterliche Handschrift wiederverwendet. Es handelt sich hierbei wohl um ein Blatt aus einer Liederhandschrift mit gregorianischen Gesängen in Quadraturnotation und auf der Textgrundlage lateinischer Psalmen (Unxit te Deus ). Das Buch ist vollständig. Mit gefärbten Kopfschnitt. Der Rücken des Einbandes ist beschädigt (es fehlt ugf. die Hälfte desselben), ansonsten befindet sich das Buch in einem zeitgemäß guten Zustand. Siehe Fotos. 697 Seiten, XXXVIII unpag. Bl.

         Malleus Maleficarum

      Malleus Maleficarum bound with 12 chapter's of Nider's writings on his Formicarius (pp. 694 - 806). Very good condition. Fine later leather binding. Two very significant works that were extremely influential. Occasional, infrequent, & scattered underlining, and relatively slight browning and foxing, considering the age.A very good conditioned book that is significant, rare, attractive, and bound with Nider's writing!I could find a 1519 modern rebound edition for $14,252 from an on-line seller, but could find no other 16th, 17th, 18th century editions."The Malleus Maleficarum, usually translated as the Hammer of Witches, is the best known and the most important treatise on witchcraft. It was written by the Catholic clergyman Heinrich Kramer (under his Latinized name Henricus Institoris) and first published in the German city of Speyer in 1487. It endorses extermination of witches and for this purpose develops a detailed legal and theological theory. It was a bestseller, second only to the Bible in terms of sales for almost 200 years.The Malleus elevates sorcery to the criminal status of heresy and prescribes inquisitorial practices for secular courts in order to extirpate witches. The recommended procedures include torture to effectively obtain confessions and the death penalty as the only sure remedy against the evils of witchcraft. At that time, it was typical to burn heretics alive at the stake and the Malleus encouraged the same treatment of witches. The book had a strong influence on culture for several centuries." (Wikipedia)------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------"The Formicarius, written 1436-1438 by Johannes Nider during the Council of Basel and first printed in 1475, is the second book ever printed to discuss witchcraft (the first book being Fortalitium Fidei). Nider dealt specifically with witchcraft in the fifth section of the book. Unlike his successors, he did not emphasize the idea of the Witches' Sabbath and was skeptical of the claim that witches could fly by night. With over 25 manuscript copies from fifteenth and early sixteenth century editions from the 1470s to 1692, the Formicarius is an important work for the study of the origins of the witch trials in Early Modern Europe, as it sheds light on their earliest phase during the first half of the 15th century.Nider was one of the first to transform the idea of sorcery to its more modern perception of witchcraft. Prior to the fifteenth century, magic was thought to be performed by educated males who performed intricate rituals. In Nider's Formicarius, the witch is described as uneducated and more commonly female." (Wikipedia)

         De apparitionibus spirituum tractatus duo: quorum prior agit De apparitionibus omnis generis spiritum, Dei angelorum, daemonum et animarum humanarum libri uno.

      Ex officina Mater. Cholini, 1600. In 8° (196x154); carte non num. 8, pagine 486, marca tipogr. al frontespizio. Cartonato settecentesco con titolo manoscritto al dorso. Il gesuita Peter Thyraes di Neuss (1546-1601) fu teologo attivo nel campo della demonologia. Nel 1582 diede alle stampe a Magonza il suo primo libro e nel 1594 pubblicò, oltre alla prima edizione del "Demoniaci, hoc est: de obsessis a spiritibus daemoniorum hominibus, liber unus", il "De variis tam spiritum quam vivorum hominum prodigiosis apparitionibus & nocturnis infestationibus libri tres... ". Questa rara opera è sostanzialmente una edizione ampliata e rivista del "De variis...", anche se si può considerare un'opera a sè stante, considerata la notevole differenza fra le due. E' divisa in due parti: la prima che tratta delle apparizioni di ogni genere di spiriti, la seconda contiene "De Divina.apparitione..". Buon esemplare genuino con usuali forti arrossamento della carta data la carta tedesca del periodo, le prime carte con fine traccia di tarlo al marg. sup. e da pag.107 a 127 e da 371 a 397 al marg. int. inf.

Gilbert was chiefly concerned with magnetism; but as a digression he discusses in his second book the attractive effect of amber (electrum), and thus may be regarded as the founder of electrical science. He coined the terms 'electricity,' 'electric force' and 'electric attraction'" (PMM). In Book One Gilbert "introduced his new basic idea that the earth is a gigantic lodestone and thus has magnetic properties" while in Book Two, his observations on the amber effect "introduced the vocabulary of electrics, and is the basis for Gilbert's place in the history of electricity" (DSB).

         1600. Ancient Greek Victory Odes to Olympic Games, among others, by Pindar. Bindings

      Paul Stephens, Geneva 1600 - This little book is a personal favorite of mine. The unique size/format, combined with the remarkably preserved contemporary binding make this one a true treat. The book is small, but still in its beveled oak boards, with non-molested clasps; the endbands hint at a white/green pattern, and the page edges show a faded green that must have added wonderfully to the book when it was first bound. This is a collection of the Ancient Greek author Pindar's Victory Odes, including the Olympic games, printed at the end of the 16th century (1600) in Geneva. This little work would make an excellent gift for a bibliophile athlete. The text is in Greek and Latin (facing pages). More on the Literature - "Almost all Pindar's victory odes are celebrations of triumphs gained by competitors in Panhellenic festivals such as the Olympian Games. In the 5th century, when there was an increased tendency towards professionalism, they were predominantly aristocratic assemblies, reflecting the expense and leisure needed to attend such events either as a competitor or spectator. Attendance was an opportunity for display and self-promotion, and the prestige of victory, requiring commitment in time and/or wealth, perhaps far beyond anything that accrues to athletic victories today. Pindar's odes capture something of the prestige and the aristocratic grandeur of the moment of victory. His victory odes are grouped into four books named after the Olympian, Pythian, Isthmian, and Nemean Games – Panhellenic festivals held respectively at Olympia, Delphi, Corinth and Nemea." – Wikipedia Physical Attributes - The signatures on the quires are eight leaves in length (e.g. - a1 to a8), which surprises me; I would have expected 12 or 24; tall 8vo. Measures 13 x 7 x 4 cm. Alum tawed pigskin over oak beveled boards with three spine ribs. Boards are blind tooled/pressed with one border roll and a central fleur-de-lis with corner leaves in the central compartment. Page edges lightly green, endbands also have a faded alternating white/green pattern. Pages - (2) 576 (2). Condition - See pictures. Shelf wear to binding with losses at edge corners, thumbing, etc. Spine has cracked from opening, and sunned (lighter than boards). Some remnants of library label at bottom of spine. Clasps and binding appear original, without repair. Green theme has largely faded from endbands and page edges. No writing on endpapers. Title page has ownership inscriptions at top and bottom margins (see pictures). Name "(Tillner?)" on back of title page. Some of the pages have light foxing. There are occasional light marks made by intrusions of moisture. Pages 572 and 573 both have an "x" written in the margin. Some dog-eared pages. With some evidences of 418 years, but the binding is in wonderful shape for its age, and the book does not see to have the typical book seller marks (indicating it hasn't been passed around a lot). 700 grams [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         The theorike and practike of moderne warres, discoursed in dialogue wise.

      London: printed by Peter Short,, 1600. Wherein is declared the neglect of martiall discipline: the inconvenience thereof: the imperfections of manie training captaines: a redresse by due regard had: the fittest weapons for our modern warre: the use of the same: the parts of a perfect souldier in generall and in particular: the officers in degrees, with their severall duties: the imbattailing of men in formes now most in use: with figures and tables to the same: with sundrie other martiall points. Comprehended in sixe bookes. London: printed [by Richard Field] for William Ponsonby, 1598; [bound after:] EDMONDES, Sir Clement. Observations, upon the five first bookes of Caesars Commentaries, setting fourth the practise of the art military, in the time of the Roman Empire. Wherein are handled all the chiefest points of their discipline, with the true reasons of every part, together with such instructions as may be drawn from their proceedings, for the better direction of our moderne warres. 2 works bound in 1, folio (281 x 184 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in manuscript, lacks ties. Barret: woodcut vignette to title, full-page woodcut arms of dedicatee on title verso, woodcut diagrams in text, leaf O1 (a singleton) is a folded diagram, full-page woodcut arms of author on last leaf verso (Y6v). Edmondes: 6 engraved plates (4 double-page). With 19th-century ownership inscriptions ("Mr R. Thomas, from Mr. Wm. Owen his cousin, North Wales" and "R. G. Thomas 1842, from his mother") and later ownership inscriptions of Spencer John Skipper, a South Australian-born journalist, and his eldest son Herbert Stanley Skipper (1880–1962), solicitor and promoter of libraries, all to the front pastedown. Barret diagram on F6v just shaved at fore edge margin; Edmondes first plate just shaved at fore edges, third plate with small loss of border at foot; these minor flaws consequent to the folding plates being bound in and trimmed as double-page. Vellum a little short at foot and likely re-cased at an early date, front joint split at head, small repair to fore edge of front cover, slight fraying to first two leaves of Edmondes, small dampstain at foot, lower third of folding leaf O1 in Barret skilfully reattached, a few minor marks and spill-burns, still a very good copy. First editions of two of the most authoritative of the military treatises issued in the period. At a time when England had largely been isolated from developments elsewhere, Barret derived his authority from "having spent the most part of my time in the profession of Armes, and that among forraine nations, as the French, the Dutch, the Italian, and Spaniard". His book, dedicated to Henry Herbert, earl of Pembroke, and his son William, later the co-dedicatee of the 1623 Shakespeare first folio, is finely printed by Shakespeare's Stratford schoolfellow Richard Field. The downfall of Shakespeare's Parolles in All's Well that Ends Well ("the gallant militarist … that had the whole theoricke of warre in the knot of his scarfe, and the practise in the chape of his dagger" – IV, iii) may be an echo of the book's title. Edmondes's work is a commentary on books 1–5 of Julius Caesar's Gallic Wars, together with an abridged translation of the books. "Edmondes explained that the work was directed at English soldiers and he supplemented his comments on Roman military practice with observations on contemporary campaigns, including those of the English forces in France and the war in Ireland, as well as the battle of Dreux of 1562 between the royal army and protestant forces in France. He also discussed the question of how to deal with an invasion of England, whether to oppose an invading army at the coast or to withdraw and offer battle later. His preference was to fortify the coast of Kent and oppose a landing. As well as military matters, he included an explanation of the causes of tides" (ODNB).

         Aphrica

      Johan Bussemecher excudit in Ubiorum Coloniae. Q. [Cologne, c.1600] - Copper engraved 210 x 290 mm An attractive quarto map of the continent of Africa, engraved by Johann Bussemacher for Quad's Geographisch Handtbuch. The continent is highly detailed, with numerous place names listed, and with rivers, mountains, and principal cities depicted pictorially. To the east, the Arabian peninsula is shown in full, as is Madagascar and the islands of the Indian Ocean. North, across the Mediterranean, the southernmost parts of Cyprus, Turkey, Greece, Sicily, Italy, Sardinia, and Spain can be seen, and off the west coast, the Atlantic islands, including the Canaries, the Cape Verde islands, and Tristan de Cunha are plotted. The map is further embellished by a large and decorative circular strapwork cartouche enclosing the title. On the left side of the plate, an extensive Latin description of the history and geography of the continent of Africa reads vertically. Matthias Quad (1557-1613) was a Dutch-German cartographer, geographer, author, engraver, and publisher. Born in the Netherlands, Quad was one of a number of leading lights in the mapmaking community of Cologne at the turn of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Aside from working as an engraver for Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum, Quad also partnered with Johann Bussemacher in the production of a number of smaller scale atlases, inspired by the success of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.
