About this Item: Basilea: Heinrich Petri, 1551. Xilografia di mm. 247 x 386. Carta vergata. Edizione tedesca. Marginalmente lungo il lato superiore, al di fuori del legno ed in caratteri romani, i numeri di pagina clxxxviii, clxxxix, il titolo: "'Contrafehtung der furnemen statt Venedig sampt den umbligenden inseln" . Nella pianta diversi nomi in latino ed italiano (in tedesco Teutsch-haus: Fondaco dei Tedeschi). In basso a sinistra il monogramma C. S. con sottostante il cavallo. A destra del monogramma due grandi riquadri con inserite due brevi descrizioni della città in caratteri tipografici: "Die Statt Venedig hat 62 pfarkirchen und 41 closter. Sie hat so vil canalen/ oder wasser fluss als sie gassen hat. Es seind darin 400 offentlischer brucken und /steg on die besundere gezelt.Item schiff so man zu allen hantierungen brauchen/ mag findt do bey 8000. Im werckhaus Arsenal genant das mit einer mau/ren umbfangen ist seind stets 400 meister und gesellen dieon underlass grosse /morschiff bereiten undmachen. In der inseln Murano macht man die hubschen/ Venediger undcrystalliner glasser, die man haraus und in alle lender bringt./Es begreifft umsich die stadtt Venedig acht welcher eilen. Und wie wol sie gar-/im more light, ist siedoch beschirmrt vonn demongestimen more durchein naturlich/ gestad so sich umb die statt umbherzencht gleich als ein onberwegliche mauer,das/ dem more demsturm nimpt das es die statt niuberfallen mag. An funft ortern hat es / breite lucken, dardurch man faren mag besunder bey den zweien Castellen zu Latin/ Duo propugnacula genant und bey der bischiffichen statt Chioza, die 25 mey-/len von Venedig ghen Ferrar zu ligt. Es ligen 25 inseln umb die statt und werden fast/ alle von geistlichen leuten bewonet ". Vi è ripetuta la rappresentazione convenzionale città -laguna già ideata da Bordone, ma esasperata ancor di più nella deformazione delle distanze e delle superfici. La prospettiva della città si differenzia per il punto di vista più ribassato rispetto le piante di Giovanni Andrea Vavassore e del Bordone; innegabile è invece, una certa affinità con laconcezioneprospettica del De' Barbari. La prima edizione della Cosmografia con laveduta di Venezia è del 1550, in tedesco, le successive edizioni appaiono fino al 1628. Malgrado la massiccia tiratura sembra che il legno non sia stato ripassato o rifatto. L'unica modifica notata è la cancellazione della scritta in alto a sinistra "Brenta fl" in alcuni esemplari della tarda edizione in lingua tedesca.

Dionysii Alex. et Pomp. Melae Situs orbis: DIONYSIUS Periegetes, Pomponius

About this Item: [Geneva], Henri Estienne II, 1577., 1577. 4to, pp. [8], 135, 134-158, [16]; [8], 47, [1 blank]; 106; 107-152; text in Latin and Greek, woodcut Estienne device to title, occasional ornaments and marginal diagrams; lightly browned, small tide-mark in gutter; late 18th-century vellum over boards, neatly rebacked in 19th century with gilt red morocco lettering-piece, two binder's blanks dividing texts; boards marked and slightly bowed; a very good copy.First edition thus of a collection of classical geographical texts, described by Schreiber as 'Estienne's important and beautiful edition . published (as he states in the preface) because his father's edition of Dionysius (1547) had long become unobtainable'. 'Henri has made important additions to his father's edition, which include his own Latin translation of the geographical poem of Dionysius, with his notes on the text and on the commentary of Eustathius; he also prints the three Roman geographical tracts by Pomponius Mela (with the annotations of Olivarius), Solinus (with the textual comments of Delrio), and Aethicus Ister (with the notes of Josias Simler who had published the editio princeps two years earlier)' (Schreiber).Provenance: from the library of Sir Mark Masterman-Sykes (1771-1823), with his arms in gilt to upper cover (British Armorial Bindings, University of Toronto, stamp 5), his inscription at head of front pastedown ('Cat V1. P.211. MMS Sledmere'), and 3 short Latin marginalia (washed but legible) to Solinus. A prominent bibliophile and a founding member of the Roxburghe Club, Sykes collected primarily early printed books, with significant interests (among others) in classical texts and topography. His 'splendid, curious, and extensive library' was dispersed at auction by R.H. Evans across twenty-five days in 1824, when the present volume sold to the bookseller Bohn. Armorial bookplate of Henry Harden LL.B.; with his occasional pencil annotations in Latin, Greek, and English.Adams D648; Renouard, Estienne, p. 145; Schreiber 200. Seller Inventory # T3634

About this Item: Imp. herederos de Luca Antonio Giunta. Venecia, 1543, 1543. . 20,5 cm. 8 h., 103 fol. Profusamente ilustr. con grabados de figuras geométricas y astronómicas. Capitales decoradas. Marca tipográfica en portada y colofón. Enc. posterior en tafilete roja, ruedas doradas en planos, lomera cuajada con inscripción, con una pequeña restauración. Notas manuscritas en portugués y latín de un antiguo poseedor. * Primera edición de este tratado de astronomía del matemático y astrónomo siciliano Francesco Maurolico (Francesco da Messina). Se trata de una importante obra que contiene primerísimas referencias a las discusiones coetáneas sobre la rotación de la Tierra alrededor de su eje y las innovadoras teorías divulgadas aquel mismo año en el De revolutionibus de Copérnico, aunque Maurolico se alinea junto a los defensores del modelo geocéntrico de Eudoxo. Alude también a los recientes descubrimientos de Colón y Vespuccio. La Cosmographia está dividida en tres diálogos, un género de gran éxito en el Renacimiento en que se vehiculan algunos de los textos científicos más importantes de la época -recuérdese el caso de Galileo. Está dedicada al gran humanista y coleccionista el cardenal Pietro Bembo. A diferencia de otros ejemplares, se añade la dedicatoria al lector, fechada en 1542, donde se ofrece una útil lista de los parámetros astronómicos utilizados en la obra. America, Colón, Vespucio.
