AGRICOLA, George. Oratio de bello adversus Turcam suscipiendo, ad Ferdinandum Ungariae boemiaequ regem & principes Germaniae Basel, Froben, 1538.4to. Modern boards. With 2 woodcut printer’s devices. 18 lvs. First Latin translation of "Oration, Anred und Vermanung Herrn Ferdinandum zu Ungern" (Nuremberg, Peypus, 1531), an pamphlet on the Turkish wars in Hungary which began with the siege of Vienna in 1529. "Agricola gives a long-winded account of the Turks' cruelties and warns that Germany is now threatened by the Turkish forces. Hungary must be given every assistance." No writer has so praised the superiority of the Imperial armaments over the apparently weak Turkish weaponry. He stressed the superior arms of the German mercenaries, while the Turks had but flimsy pikes. Victory over a so poorly equipped enemy is nothing less than certain. His oration was written a few months after the siege of Vienna, which may explain his excessive optimism" (Kertbeny, p. 89 etc.). With preface by Georg Fabricius dedicated to Chemnitz and at the end a letter of Laurentius Bermannus to king Ferdinand, ex valle Joachimi April, 1530. A catholic with a broad humanistic education, George Agricola spent most of his life in Saxony as an educator, physician, scientist, and expert on mining and metallurgy. His outlook was more secular than that of the other pamphleteers. He viewed the Turkish question primarily as a militair and economic problem rather than as a divine visitation. In one respect his views resembled those of the other Catholic writers: he envisaged the eventual extirpation of the Islamic religion at the point of the sword.

BOSQUIER, Philippe. Orator Terrae Sanctae, et Hungariae; seu, Sacrarum Philppicarum in Turcarum barbariem. Douai, Ex typographia Laurentii Kellam, sumptibus Petri Borremans, 1606.Sm.8vo. Contemporary limp vellum. With engraved device on title of Sts. Peter and Paul and engraved plate signed Waldor, woodcut floriated initials. (32),422,(2) pp. With bookplate of the Mount Street Jesuits and their small library stamp in blank margin of titlepage, ‘Chris Hunt: lege age’ in contemporary m.s on flyleaf. - Rare first edition of these 'Philippics' by the Flemish Franciscan Philippe Bosquier (1561-1636), in which he excoriates the Turks for their persecution of Christians especially in Hungary. The engraved plate depicts with gruesome detail the torture upon the Hungarians, including the feeding to the dogs of Christians, by the Ottomans. Bosquier was born at Mons, studied theology at the University of Paris, and was sent to Rome where Cardinal Caesar Baronius became his patron. He was the author of thirty volumes of sermons and several plays, populist with strong moral themes, in which he attacks the Huguenots and the 'mondains'. Bosquier employs the same populist tone against the Turks, though he uses many classical and religious sources to back his arguments. He also includes a powerful plea for unity in the Church in face of the Ottoman threat. A rare work, that provides much insight into the Counter Reformation Church's reaction to the Ottoman invasion of Europe. Not in Apponyi, Blackmer or Atabey [Boeknr.: 32482 ]

"A synopsis of Paolo Giovio's 'Commentario delle cose de Turchi' and Marinus Barleti's 'Historia de vita et gestis Scanderbegi'" (cf.

In 1528 he was rewarded with a bishopric and became one of the most profilic historians of the era. This earliest historical work reflected his interest in what he regarded as the two greatest perils to Catholic Christendom - the Ottomans and the Lutherans. His eyewitness accounts of battles form a significant primary sources for the period. He was in contact with protagonists of the great events he so vividly described. He used the information he gleaned from his contacts to carry on an extensive correspondence that became a kind of proto-journalism. With his interests in history, literature, geography, exploration, medicine, and the arts, this man reflects almost the entire spectrum of High Renaissance civilization.Apponyi I, 234; Göllner, Tücica, 595; Blackmer Collection 690 (Venice 1541), Atabey Collection 499 (Rome 1535).

Seinen Spitznamen Türkenlouis erwarb er sich durch seine Erfolge im Kampf gegen die Osmanen im Grossen Türkenkrieg 1683-1699. Die Beute aus den Türkenkriegen befindet sich heute im Karlsruher Schloss. In der Schlacht bei Slankamen konnte er 1691 seinen größten Triumph erzielen und wurde Leopold I. zum Generalleutnant aller kaiserlichen Truppen ernannt. Dieser Titel wurde im 17.

(Erzsebet p. 60 - 63)Joris Hoefnagels made many landscape drawings during his travels in Europe. These later served as the models for engravings for Ortelius' Theatrum orbis terrarum (1570) and Braun's Civitates orbis (Cologne, 1572-1618). Hoefnagel worked on the Civitates his whole life and may have acted as an agent for the project, by commissioning views from other artists. He also completed more than 60 illustrations himself. He enlivened the finished engravings with a Mannerist sense of fantasy and wit by using dramatic perspectives and ornamental cartouches. Due to the topographical accuracy he heralded the realist trend in 17th-century Netherlandish landscape art. His son Jacob reworked in 1617 designs of his father for the sixth volume of the Civitates, which was published in Cologne in 1618. Volume 6 contains a homogeneous series of images of cities in Central Europe (in Austria, Bohemia, Moravia, Hungary and Transylvania), which are very consistent in their graphics. The views are in perspective, and only in a few cases, isometric and stand out through the accuracy of the information, the particular attention to the faithful representation of the territory, the landscape, the road conditions and the power of observation and refinement of interpretation [Boeknr.: 35362 ]

The eighth war between the Ottoman Empire and the Republic of Venice was initiated by Karl VI and was fought in the Peloponnese (Morea) in 1714-1718. The troops under Prince Eugene of Savoy (1663-1736) arrived on this front in 1716 and the Turks were first defeated at Peterwadein in 1716. In the same year the last Turkish possessions in Hungary, Temesvar, also fell. In 1717 Eugene defeated the Ottomans at Belgrade. Accounts of these battles and others are included in this work, as are the details of the Treaty of Passarowitz, signed on July 21st, 1718, when the Ottomans ceded territories in Serbia and Bosnia to Austria. Zum Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts, als der Große Türkenkrieg zwischen dem Osmanischen Reich und der Heiligen Liga christlich-europäischer Mächte mit dem Frieden zu Karlowitz (1699) seinen vertraglichen Abschluss fand, war die Bedrohung 5 Nordwesteuropas durch die Türken nicht mehr akut.

Eine solche Sicht auf den Osmanen und türkischen Feind bestimmt auch das überwiegend um Sachlichkeit bemühte Hungarisch- und Venetianisches Kriegs-Theatrum („einen deutlichen und ohnpassionirten Bericht geben“ Die in das Werk eingelassenen Visualisierungen, die Tabellen, die Zeitungsauszüge und die Augenzeugenberichte etc. bringen im Zusammenspiel mit den wortreichen, vielfach langatmigen Verbalbeschreibungen eine Art plurimedialen Schauplatz hervor. Dieser lässt sich einer bebilderten Gazette oder einem monatsperiodischen Kleinalmanach vergleichen. Im ersten Drittel des Jahres 1717 muss das vorliegende Werk auf den Markt gekommen sein, denn als Terminus ante quem können die Belagerung und die schließlich für die kaiserlich-österreichischen Truppen siegreiche Eroberung Belgrads von Mai bis August 1717 gelten.

LEU, Thomas de. Nagykanizsa. Paris, 1602.Etching and copper engraving, mounted on a larger piece of contemporary paper, text panels contemporarily separated from print and mounted on verso. Ca. 43 x 56 cm. Framed. Bird’s eye view of a battle fought in Hungary between forces loyal to the Habsburgs under the Duke of Mercœur and the Ottomans. « En cette Journée se voit comme l’armée Chrestienne campée à une demy lieue de Canise. & tout aupres de celle des Turcs, fit contre eux & soustint plusieurs efforts. » This commemorates the victorie of Philippe Emmanuel, the Duke of Mercœur, in a battle against the Turks, fought in Hungary in 1601. Published in Paris, likely shortly after Mercœur’s death in 1602. It was created by Thomas de Leu (1560-1612), a Flemish engraver who lived in Paris. Philippe Emmanuel de Lorraine, Duke of Mercœur was born in 1558 in Nomeny France. In 1589-90, he led the Catholic League in Brittany, in opposition to the ascension of the Protestant Henri IV to the French throne. After the league was defeated, Mercœur was persona not grata in France. Meanwhile, the Habsburg Empire was in the midst of the ‘Long War’ against the Ottomans. The Austrians felt a need to shore up their position in Lower Hungary. Rudolf’s brother, Archduke Matthias, was charged with leading the campaign. Mercœur was eager to redeem himself, fighting for a new cause. In 1597, he travelled to Hungary at the head of an army of 3,000 men composed of French recruits. He distinguished himself as one of the leading Habsburg commanders of the war and won important battles at Nagykanizsa and Györ. He besieged Nagykanizsa at the head of 15,000 troops against Ibrahim Pasha’s army of 60,000. His most famous battle was fought at Székesféhervár in September 1601. It is reported that after capturing the city he treated the Turkish governor with courtesy. [Boeknr.: 35276 ]

They made a large contribution to the development of Hungarian printing.The famous Hungarian Count Franz III Nádasdy’s work on Hungarian Imperial law, printed within the walls of his castle at Pottendorf. Count Franz Nádasdy (1622-1671), a Hungarian baron, Lord Lieutenant, Royal Council, Chief Chamberlain and Chief Justice, was doubly of royal descent. Specifically, he is descended from the line of the Anjou Plantagenet whose medieval ancestors settled as the Nádasd in Hungary. In 1665, Nádasdy gained control of Pottendorf castle and set up a printing shop where he employed the Antwerp printer and bookseller Jerome Verdussen. In 1667, Franz found himself at the head of the conspiratorial secret society. The next year, this printed work appeared from within the castle walls. The Cynosura is a self-compiled work that provided short comments on the recent subject index of Hungarian Imperial laws adopted until 1659. Two years later, and somewhat ironically, the unfortunate count found himself amid an uprising and armed rebellion and was later beheaded in 1671 for conspiracy against Emperor Leopold I of Austria. - Rare.

This booklet is interesting for Austrian history and its relation with Turkey. In the first section the revolt headed by Count Tököly is described. He heralded the discomfort felt by many Hungarians who saw the Turkish domination, relatively tolerant, being followed by the harsh Austrian one. After his defeat Tököly fled to Turkey. The other sections give a good surver of the military and diplomatic operations around the siege of Vienna. The book is not only a catalogue of battles and heroic deed in defence of the faith, but provides also i.a. descriptions of collections of the Royal Palace and the Imperial Library in Vienna.„Das lange Gedicht ist unmittelbar nach die Belagerung geschrieben worden.

RELATION DE CE QUI S'EST PASSÉ à la prise de Vicegradt & de Weitzen par les Imperiaux, & dans les deux combats donnez entre leurs troupes & celles des Turcs, le 17 & le 27 du mois de Juin dernier. (Paris, 2 Aoust, 1684). 4to. Old half calf, pink wrappers preserved. 8 pp. By 1683, the Ottoman Empire had spread westward until Vienne itself was under siege. Campaigns by the members of the Holy League, comprised of Austria, Poland and the Venetian Rupublic, finally brought relief to Central Europe, and negociations ended with the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1693. This Treaty, between Turkey on the one side and the countries of the Holy League on the other, resulted in Turkey's loss of Hungary, Transylvania, Croatia, Slavonia, Dalmatia, the Peloponnesus, and other territories. The Treaty also marked the beginning of the disintegration of the Ottoman Empire. This pamphlet pertains to the taking of Vicegard and Weitzen, two towns close to Budapest, by Charles, Duke of Lorraine and his Holy League forces, not long after they had relieved Vienna. Some months later, in early 1685, they also took Budapest from the Turks, and the Turkish hegemony in Eastern Europe was over.We have not located any copy in any library which we have consulted.

Map of Hungary after Comte Luigi Marsigli (1658-1730), an Italian military engineer who surveyed Hungary and the Danube 1696-99 after the peace agreement between Austria and the Ottoman Empire.Depicting the Christian territories in Europe under Ottoman rule. In 1687 the Christian allies regained Hungary and the south of the Peloponnese fell to the Venetians. These wars diverted the attention of the public to the European frontiers of the Ottoman Empire. Numerous maps were issued to illustrate the fighting between the Ottoman and the West. Commercial publishers in the Low Countries such as Johannes Danckerts (Amsterdam / ca. 1690) and Pieter Schenk (Amsterdam / ca. 1695) produced maps of south - east Europe in large format. They refer to the “Christian kingdom” of Hungary, Greece and the Peleponnese, and a ‘Cristianised’ Apollo is the main feature of the decorative cartouche. The basic purpose of these maps was to provide the European public with cartographic images of the contemporary theatre of war. (Tolias 2011, p. 219 - 223) [Boeknr.: 35366 ]

Il relate essentiellement les opérations menées en 1715-1716 dans le cadre de la Troisième guerre austro-turque, où Venise se trouva l'alliée des Habsbourg contre l'Empire ottoman: les Turcs voulaient en effet reconquérir la Morée (Péloponnèse), cédée à Venise par le Traité de Carlowitz (1699), et déclarèrent la guerre à la République dès décembre 1714, tout en menant une double offensive, terrestre et maritime, contre les possessions vénitiennes. Il fallut l'intervention des 70 000 hommes du Prince Eugène et la victoire autrichienne de Peterwardein (5 août 1716) pour soulager les Vénitiens, et mettre fin à la guerre. Par le traité de Passarowitz, signé le 21 juillet 1718, la Turquie cédait le Banat de Temesvar, la Valachie occidentale et le nord de la Serbie, mais gardait la Morée, que les Vénitiens avaient été incapables de reprendre.Navari, Collection Contominas, 748.
