As usual, the paper is lightly browned. Vol. III with some unimportant dampstaining in upper blank margins. ❧ Paul U.

         Corsendonca, sive Coenobii canonicorum regularium Ordinis S. Augustini de Corsendoncq, origo et progressus, auctore Ioanne Latomo, Throni Mariani iuxta Herentaliam Coenobiarcha. Ioannes Hoybergius S.T.B.F. Prior Corsendoncanus nunc primum edidit, continuavit & notationibus illustravit. Quibus non solum multa quae ad Brabantiae Historiam pertinent, sed & variorum Coenobiorum origines e tenebris eruuntur.

      Antwerp (Antverpiae), Apud Hieronymum Verdussium, 1644. 8vo. (XVI),180,(28 index) p. Calf. 15 cm (Ref: Beledimar 962; In STCV; NNBW 2,787/88) (Details: Back gilt and with 5 raised bands. Morocco shield in the second compartment. Edges of the boards gilt. Marbled endpapers) (Condition: Binding slightly worn, especially at the extremes. Trace of a bookplate on the front pastedown) (Note: Johannes Latomus (Bergizomius) was born in the Dutch city Bergen op Zoom in 1520, he died in Antwerp in 1578 in the 'Falconsklooster'. He was a son of Jacob Steenhauwers and Margaretha Vordeels, and made his profession in the Augustine monastery 'Marientroon' near Grobbendonk in the region of Herenthals, was appointed abbot (Coenobiarcha) of the priory of Corsendonk in 1551. He not only was a wise and amiable man, and a prudent administrator, but he was also considered an excellent poet, a conscientious historian and a great scholar. He saved the autograph of the 'Imitatio Christi' of Thomas a Kempis from oblivion. His best known work 'Corsendonca' describes the history of the former Augustine priory of Corsendonk, south of Turnhout. (NNBW 2,787/88) The priory was part of the chapter of Windesheim, and was founded in 1395 by Maria of Gelre, also known as Maria of Brabant, daughter of Duke Jan III of Brabant. The monastery was closed down by the emperor Joseph II in 1785; the closing became definitive in 1795. (See Wikipedia 'Corsendonk (Priorij) The history of Corsendonk, continued after Latomus' death by prior Hoybergius till 1642, fills the first 38 pages of the book. The rest consists of Hoybergius' notes. The priory was in the 17th and 18th century known for its scriptorium and Latin tuition. § Johannes Latomus was also an excellent Neolatin poet. Hofman Peerlkamp praises his poetry for its elegance: 'Carmina certe, quibus Elogia Joviani ornavit, elegantia, amoenitate, et acumine plerumque excellunt. Nec deest nitor et facilitas orationis'. (Hofman Peerlkamp, 'Liber de vita doctrina et facultate Nederlandicorum qui carmina latina composuerunt', Haarlem 1888, p. 118/19) § The 'Corsendonca' of Johannes Latomus Bergizomius is in ADB (Algemeine Deutsch Biographie, vol.18, p. 4) erroneously attributed to his namesake and contemporary, the German historian and theologian Johannes Latomus, 1524-1600, deacon of the Frankfurter 'Chorherrenstift St. Bartholomäi'. He wrote about the history of Frankfurt) (Provenance: On the front flyleaf: 'L. Mostelmans') (Collation: *8, A-N8) (Photographs on request)

In 1623 Janssonius owned a bookstore in Frankfurt am Main, later also in Danzig, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, Königsberg, Geneva and Lyon. In the 1630s he formed a partnership with his brother in law Henricus Hondius, and together they published atlases as Mercator/Hondius/Janssonius.Under the leadership of Janssonius the Hondius Atlas was steadily enlarged. Renamed Atlas Novus, it had three volumes in 1638, one fully dedicated to Italy. 1646 a fourth volume came out with "English County Maps", a year after a similar issue by Willem Blaeu. Janssonius' maps are similar to those of Blaeu, and he is often accused of copying from his rival, but many of his maps predate those of Blaeu and/or covered different regions. By 1660, at which point the atlas bore the appropriate name "Atlas Major", there were 11 volumes, containing the work of about a hundred credited authors and engravers. It included a description of "most of the cities of the world" (Townatlas), of the waterworld (Atlas Maritimus in 33 maps), and of the Ancient World (60 maps). The eleventh volume was the Atlas of the Heavens by Andreas Cellarius. Editions were printed in Dutch, Latin, French, and a few times in German."

         TOPOGRAPHIA BAVARIAE

      [Frankfurt am Main]: Matthaeus Merian, 1644 [but ca. 1660]. FIRST EDITION. Written, like a number of Merian books, by the German school official and miscellaneous author Zeiller (1589-1661), this beautifully illustrated publication is part of the splendid and justly celebrated "Topographia" series of books initiated by Merian (1593-1650) and continued by his heirs to a grand total of some 30 folio volumes, issued between 1642-88. The profusely illustrated works are of primary importance for the knowledge of Central European topography of the baroque era, and it is of great interest because of the very considerable artistic value of its engravings. Graesse notes that volumes (like the present one) covering Germany are especially valued for the accuracy of the illustrations, representing the country very much as it was at the time the books were produced. The present volume covers Bavaria, one of the loveliest parts of Germany. According to Wüthrich, Merian the Elder engraved most of the plates here himself, including some of the most beautiful in the series: "the Vogelschau and the Steinerne Brücke of Regensburg, Neuburg on the Danube, Passau, Landshut, and the market square at Munich"--the latter still recognizable to the modern tourist. The title page bears the date of 1644, though the actual publication date was at least 10 years later. Ours is the first printing of the work, without the appendix that would be added to a later, 132-page edition (still with title page dated 1644). The plates here are executed with considerable skill and charm, with the artist including details of costume and touches of daily life whenever scale permits. Because the Merian topographical works are illustrated books that would have invited avid use, they are usually found with serious defects; the present well-preserved copy is an exception.. 311 x 210 mm. (12 1/4 x 8 1/4"). 38, [2], 39-84 pp., [4] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary stiff vellum, holes for ties (now missing). With engraved title page, TWO FOLDING MAPS, AND 52 PLATES (40 double-page, mounted on stubs) SHOWING 91 VIEWS. Front free endpaper with early ink owner's signature; occasional early ink marginalia. Wüthrich IV,108, no. 19; Brunet V, 1529-30; Graesse VI, 509. Vellum somewhat soiled, but the binding entirely sound and very satisfactory. Not infrequent but always faint browning to margins, a hint of soiling or foxing here and there, other minor defects, but still an excellent copy internally, generally clean, rather fresh, and with strong impressions of the plates.Written, like a number of Merian books, by the German school official and miscellaneous author Zeiller (1589-1661), this beautifully illustrated publication is part of the splendid and justly celebrated "Topographia" series of books initiated by Merian (1593-1650) and continued by his heirs to a grand total of some 30 folio volumes, issued between 1642-88.

Tristano Calco fu capo della biblioteca viscontea-sforzesca di Pavia, quando nel 1494 muore a Milano Giorgio Merula gli venne affidato il compito di continuare l'opera che il Merula stava scrivendo per ordine di Lodovico Maria Sforza; inizialmente il libro doveva dimostrare che la discendenza del Moro risaliva sino alla famiglia Visconti, ma quando il Calco prese in mano l'opera volle ricominciarla daccapo sicché da trattato sulle origini della famiglia Sforza l'Historia Mediolanensis in libros vigentii divenne cronaca dei fatti storici della città di Milano dalle origini fino al 1333. Quest'opera venne scritta contemporaneamente alla celebre storia del Corio, ma a differenza di quest'ultima, pubblicata nel 1503, l'Historia Mediolanensis non vide la luce fino al 1627, stampata su ordine del Consiglio dei decurioni di Milano che voleva dare inizio a una serie di pubblicazioni storiche sulla città di Milano.
