About this Item: Georgium Marescottum, Florence, 1583. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut printer's device on title and on the colophon, woodcut initials. Full calf, gilt decorations in an antique style, morocco spine label, spine label; minor waterstain to index leaves. Faint contemporary ownership signature at foot of title page. An excellent copy. First edition of the first "rational system of plant classification" (PMM). Cesalpino's work became the foundation of scientific botany and the first articulation of the modern concept of species. With the knowledge of the existence of a greater number of plants, a method of scientific classification was needed. This era began with Cesalpino, who created his system of classification based upon plant morphology. "He insisted that distinctions among species should be made only according to similarity or dissimilarity of forms, and that 'accidental' attributes, such as medicinal use and habitat, must not be considered; in doing so, he elevated botany to the level of an independent science" (Norman). The first section of this ground-breaking work contains the general system of comparative study, retaining the traditional divisions of trees, shrubs, half-shrubs and herbs, but further sub-dividing them into different categories according to their seed, fruit and flower. The remaining sections describe over fifteen hundred plants, placing them into fifteen classes. Cesalpino focuses on the roots, stems and fruit as the basis for his classification. It is in this taxonomy that the De plantis most decidedly marks an epoch in the history of botany.The effect of this work was enormous, profoundly influencing botanists that followed, including Linnaeus in his famous works on classification, his Systema naturae of 1735 and his Classes plantarum in 1738. Indeed, Linnaeus' own fully annotated copy of De plantis now resides in the library of the Linnean Society.Cesalpino (1519-1603) was born at Arezzo in Tuscany and studied under Ghini at Pisa, where he graduated in medicine, and thereafter succeeded Aldrovandi as director of the garden at Bologna, in 1555 becoming professor of botany. He later became a professor in Rome and physician to Pope Clement VIII.

About this Item: 12mo (137 x 78 mm). Mit gefalteter Kupfertafel (mit Plan und Ansicht von Christianopolis). 220 S., 1 Bl. Errata. Schweinslederband d. Z. mit Blindprägung. Strasbourg, Heirs of Lazar Zetzner, 1619. Erstausgabe des ersten lutherisch geprägten utopischen Staatsromans, zusammengebunden mit drei weiteren Schriften Andreaes in Erstausgaben. Die ebenso berühmte wie seltene Realutopie stellt zugleich Höhepunkt und Wende in Andreaes Leben und Schaffen dar. Erst durch die später folgende Resignation kann Andreae als Vorläufer des Pietismus gelten, als der er vielfach gesehen wird. Der hoch gebildete und weit gereiste Andreae widmete den grössten Teil seines Lebens der pädagogischen Arbeit, er hoffte eine fundamentale Reform des heimischen Erziehungssystems zu verwirklichen. Als Lehrer konnte er im Lauf der Zeit einige dieser Ideen in die Praxis umsetzen, auch stellte er den ersten Plan für ein wohlgeordnetes Gymnasium auf. Unmittelbaren Einfluss auf Andreaes in Briefform verfassteReipublicae Christianopolitanae descriptio hatte sein Besuch der Stadt Genf im Jahre 1611. Zwar teilte er die Lehren Jean Calvins nicht, billigte aber dennoch die calvinistische Sittenstrenge der Genfer. Seinem pädagogischen Reformkonzept verlieh Andreae mit diesem Werk, das in der deutschen Literatur das einzige Idealbild einer Gesellschaft in einem christlichen Stadtstaat darstellt, Gestalt. Obwohl Andreae die Insel Capharsalama (hebräisch für "Dorf des Friedens"), auf der Christianopolis liegt, als eine Welt en miniature beschreibt und alle Elemente eines Staates aufweist, beabsichtigte der Verfasser nicht, dass sie von Leuten bewohnt werden sollte, die dort zufällig waren, sondern nur von solchen, die durch gemeinsame Ideale und Prinzipien zusammengekommen waren. Andreaes unmittelbarer Erfahrung mit sozialen Reformen ist es wohl zu verdanken, dass seine Utopie eine Konkretheit besitzt, die in den meisten seiner Vorbilder fehlt. Sein Erziehungssystem übte grossen Einfluss auf Johann Amos Comenius, ein bekennender Verehrer Andreaes, und auf englische Schriftsteller wie Milton, Hartlib, Drury und andere aus. Die gefaltete, nicht signierte Kupfertafel zeigt auf der linken Hälfte den quadratischen Grundriss von Christianopolis und rechts die Ansicht des christlichen Gemeinwesens als zentralisierte befestigte Stadt in Vogelschauperspektive (vgl. dazu: Der utopische Architekturentwurf des Johann Valentin Andreae, in: Rainer Lächele, Hrsg., Das Echo Halles, Tübingen, 2001, S. 59-92). - Die Tafel im Falz etwas gebräunt und mit zwei kurzen Einrissen, minimaler Papierverlust im Kopfsteg links (ausserhalb der Platte), Text etwas gebräunt. - Negley 30; Dünnhaupt I, 23; Gardner, Rosicrucian Books, 38; FdF 128; Wolfstieg 42371; C.

Der Kupfertitel zeigt das Tor zu einem Tempel oder Museum, in dessen Inneren sämtliche Wissenschaften und Handlungen des Menschen kunstvoll und präzis in Bildern dargestellt werden. "Ohne Zweifel handelt es sich bei diesem Tempel um eine bildliche Darstellung des von Andreae bewunderten Theatrum vitae humanae des Theodor Zwinger und zugleich eine Vorwegnahme des Orbis pictus des Comenius . Die noch von Dünnhaupt und Betz erwähnte Ausgabe von 1618 existiert nicht und geht auf eine Erfindung von Mälzer zurück, der das Exemplar im Evangelischen Stift Tübingen falsch beschrieben hat" (C.

Sehr schöner Sammelband mit vier berühmten und seltenen Schriften Andreaes, Begründer des Rosenkreuzerbundes und einer der bedeutendsten evangelischen Theologen des Barockzeitalters.

About this Item: heirs of Lazarus Zetzner, 1619. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Fine sammelband of four scarce first editions of works by the Renaissance theologian, Lutheran reformer, and self-proclaimed founding Rosicrucian Johann Valentin Andreae (1586-1654), including his celebrated Reipublicae Christianopolitanae, a Protestant vision of the Christian Utopia. The volume includes a folding engraved plate, often missing, depicting two views of the perfect city: a bird’s-eye view of its walls, courtyards, and central tower, together with an aerial blueprint of its symmetrical architectural layout. Like its famous predecessor, More’s Utopia (1516), Andreae’s Christianopolis describes the ideal Christian society from the perspective of a visiting narrator, in this case the shipwrecked pilgrim Cosmoxenus Christianus, who observes the city’s inhabitants, social institutions and way of life. As Thompson has remarked, however, the work’s “blueprint for establishing a small community of scholar-craftsmen”—in contrast to the stratified castes of Utopia—marks it as “a Lutheran alternative to the Jesuit collages of the counter-reformation, and a Christocentric alternative to the Rosicrucian myth” with which Andreae was also associated. Many of the work’s 100 chapters, e.g. The Library, The Pharmacy, The Natural Science Laboratory, Mathematical Instruments, Astrononomy etc., also testify to Andreae’s education in the humanities and natural sciences: he read Erasmus and Lipsiu, studied mathematics under Maestlin, and corresponded with Kepler until the latter’s death in 1630. Manuel also notes that, unlike Utopia or Campanella’s City of the Sun (a near-contemporary of the present work), the progress of Andreae’s narrator through his surroundings represents a private spiritual journey, one that perhaps prefigures Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress (1678): “Christianopolis is the history of an adept in an ideal Lutheran community, and the alterations of his inner being, his exaltation through the sight of the meticulously ordered Christian city, is the heart of the work.” Bound first in the volume is Andreae’s Herculis Christiani luctae, which includes veiled biographical material on his Tübingen friend and mentor Tobias Hess (1558-1614); Christianopolis is followed by Turris Babel (1619), an anonymously published satire of the Rosicrucian movement, and Civis Christianus, a didactic examination of religious hermeticism. *Reipublicae: Dünnhaupt 23 (‘Erster evangelisch orientierter utopischer Staatsroman im Geiste von Moore’s Utopia und Campanella’s Sonnenstaat’), Faber du Faur I.128, Gardner 38; Herculis: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 46, Gardner 30; Turris: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 285, Gardner 39; Civis: Cimelia Rhodostaurotica 284, Gardner 42.

About this Item: Strasburg, heirs of Lazarus Zetzner, 1619. Together four works in one vol., 12mo; very lightly browned; excellent copies in contemporary yapped vellum, spine lettered in ink; early inscription in ink on upper margin of the Herculis Christiani luctae (bound first); 18th-century notes on rear free end-paper; 19th-century bookplate of 'James Brown Thornton' on front paste-down.a fine sammelband of four first editions by andreae, including his famous christian utopia.I. 'In this portrait of an ideal Christian society science and orthodox Lutheran religion are completely integrated; while knowledge of Christ is the highest good, physical science becomes a major human preoccupation that has been sanctified . The Christianopolis departs in significant ways from its utopian contemporaries. It is fervently Christocentric, and the observer who is the protagonist is not a wooden robot; he is psychically transformed by the experience of the holy city. Christianopolis is the history of an adept in an ideal Lutheran community, and the alterations of his inner being, his exaltation through the sight of the meticulously ordered Christian city, is the heart of the work. By contrast, nothing much happens to Bacon's sailors shipwrecked on New Atlantis; though they feel amazement and gratitude for the kind treatment they receive, they do not undergo a spiritual conversion. As for the Genoese captain who has seen the glories of Campanella's City of the Sun, he is nothing but a figurehead, in haste to sail away once his tale has been recounted.'The hero of Christianopolis is Cosmoxenus Christianus, a stranger, a pilgrim who suffers from the corrupt uses of the world; the allegory is not disguised. Raphael Hythlodaeus, the hero of More's Utopia, is presented as a member of Vespucci's expedition functioning on a realistic level, and More's artifice throughout is to preserve verisimilitude. Andrea's pilgrim embarks on the ship named Fantasy; after it is wrecked, he is washed ashore on Caphar Salama (named for the place where Judas Maccabaeus conquered Nicanor's forces), an island whose inhabitants live in community under a spiritual rule. Caphar Salama is described in fifty chapters covering all aspects of the society under as many headings. The guardians of Christianopolis first submit the outsider to a moral examination, which he passes. Immersion in the sea, represented as a baptism, has prepared him for a new life . Andreae's man has been restored to the dignity forfeited by Adam's transgression, and through the Holy Spirit he has entered upon a new relationship with nature .'Andreae does not rely on the mere mechanics of a social utopia to bring about the general reformation of mankind. They are a part of the propitious setting of a Christian renewal; but only after men have undergone an inner transformation can they realize a terrestrial Christianopolis that will be both a simulacrum and a foretaste of the heavenly city. Universal brotherhood, godliness in men's hearts, must precede the establishment of Christianopolis' (Manuel and Manuel, Utopian Thought in the Western World, pp. 289-305).The folding plate, which is sometimes missing, shows a plan and a birds-eye elevation of Christianopolis. 'In its quadratic shape the topography of the Christian city is reminiscent of the plan of Solomon's Temple, which has been interpreted as a type of Christian rule. The concentric arrangement of the squares reminds of the rings of Campanella's City of Sun which, however, depict the heliocentric universe and are to be interpreted astrologically, not Christocentrically' (Translated from Wilhelm Schmidt-Biggemann, 'Von Damcar nach Christianopolis. Andreaes "Christianopolis" als Verwirklichungskonzept der Rosenkreuzerideen', in Rosenkreuz als europäisches Phänomen im 17. Jarhundert, Amsterdam, 2002).II, III & IV. The Herculis Christiani luctae includes biographical material on Andreae's friend and mentor, Tobias Hess; Turris Babel is Andreae's 'critical assessment and analysis of the unexpected effects.

About this Item: Würtemberg, 1724. The celestial vault in paper A pair of engraved star charts of the northern and southern hemispheres on a conical projection, joined. Johann Ludwig Andreae (1667-1725) was born in Messtetten, Würtemburg, and followed his priest father into Holy Orders in Tübingen. In 1711, he moved to Esslingen where he began to make globes. His work was part of the early eighteenth century explosion of globemaking in Germany, centred particularly around Nuremburg and makers such as Georg Eimmert and Johann Baptist Homann. He is known to have produced globes of between five and ten inches in diameter, having the construction carried out in the commercial centre of Nuremburg; he also appears to have been assisted in some way by the Rector of the Egidian Gymnasium, Samuel Farber (1657-1716), whose name appears on one globe. On some of his output, presumably as a commercial incentive, Andreae left a blank cartouche to be filled in according to the purchaser's wishes. He was succeeded by his mathematician son Johann Phillipp (c.1700-after 1757).Andreae is only known to have produced two celestial broadsheets; the present charts. They are centred on the equatorial poles using a polar equidistant projection with geocentric orientation. The maps are influenced by Coronelli and could be bent into cones and viewed from the inside to give an illusion of the celestial vault. 430mm diameter (each); approximately 430 by 800mm joined.

The first edition was printed 1554 and it had fewer and smaller illustrations in the text. "The use of illustrations to aid in describing and identifying plants was taken up enthusiastically by the Italian botanists. Ghini himself planned an illustrated work which was not carried out, but he helped and encouraged Mattioli to proceed with his Commentarii in VI Dioscoridis Libros which appeared with over 500 mostly excellent figures only a dozen years after Fuchs, and a few years later was reissued with some 1200 figures.his commentaries on Dioscorides became practically a general flora: they were immensely popular in Europe because of their mostly excellent illustrations, and many edition were published in Latin, Italian, German and Czech." (A.G. Morton). In Germany it was published under the title "New Kräuterbuch" and according to Sarton, Mattioli became a magnet of botanical information. - Pritzel 1559. - Choulant p. 80 - Nissen BBI: 1305.

About this Item: Hard Cover. Condition: Good. Cum Claudij Minois ad eadem Commentariis & Notis Posterioribus. Quibus Emblematum omnium aperta origine, mens auctoris explicatur, & obscura omnia dubiaque illustrantur. LUGDVNI. APVD HAERED. GVLIELMI ROVILLII. M.D.C. [Lyon, 1600]. In 8º (17x11,5 cm). Col: [31], 816, [29] pags. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com ferros a ouro e a seco rolados em esquadrias nas pastas e com ferros dourados em super-libris (com o emblema de Agnus Dei em ambas as pastas). Obra ilustrada com gravuras de emblemática [emblemata] reproduzindo elementos arquitecturais, com motivos sagrados e motivos profanos, acompanhando os comentários às máximas ou motes latinos. Os livros de "emblemática" contendo representações pictóricas cujo significado simbólico é expresso em palavras foram produzidos em grandes quantidades e em vários idiomas durante os séculos XVI e XVII. Nos estudos do Renascimento e do Barroco, os críticos literários e os historiadores de arte reconhecem cada vez mais a importância deste tema: emblema/emblemática. A emblemática fornece pistas importantes e mostra - com brevidade de estilo – a preocupação com a natureza eterna do homem e as suas contradições; o ouvido atento ao discurso oral popular; o desdobramento da personalidade; a loucura; a reflexão sobre a existência humana; a relação entre o homem e a mulher; a luta entre a razão e a paixão; e uma sátira à sociedade, às suas regras e aos seus governantes. A beautifully illustrated book with Emblematic - or emblemata - engravings with scriptural (writen) mottoes and commentary. Contemporary binding in full calf - blind tooled in decorative frames and gilt at super-libris with an emblem of Agnus Dei. Andrea Alciato or Andreas Alciatus (1492-1550) commonly known as Alciati was an Italian jurist and writer. He is regarded as the founder of the French school of legal humanists. Alciati is most famous for his Emblemata, published in dozens of editions from 1531 onward. This collection of short Latin verse texts and accompanying woodcuts created an entire European genre, the emblem book, which attained enormous popularity in continental Europe and Great Britain. Emblem books containing pictorial representations whose symbolic meaning is expressed in words were produced in great quantities and in numerous languages during the 16th and 17th Centuries. Today literary critics and art historians increasingly recognize the importance of the emblem in Renaissance and Baroque studies. Emblematica provides important clues and shows - with brevity of style - concern for the eternal nature of man and its contradictions, the attentive ear to the popular speech, the unfolding of the personality, madness, the reflection on human existence, the relationship between man and the woman, the struggle between reason and passion, and to the satire of society and its rules and rulers. Adams I, p. 20 (earlier editions) - Brunet I: 147 ff (many editions). - Landwehr 23-32 (earlier, german printed editions) Language: Latim / Latin Location/localizacao: M-7-D-7.
