BOCCACCIO, Giovanni.
(Al verso del f. CCCLII:) Impresso in Vinegia per Gregorio de Gregori il mese di Maggio dell'anno MDXVI (Venezia, Gregorio de Gregori, 1516). in-4 (mm 206x135), ff. (2), CCCLII, (10, ultimo bianco), raffinata legatura d'amatore in marocchino nocciola con filetti a secco e in oro, terminazioni angolari fogliacee ai piatti, dorso a nervi con titolo e fregi floreali (firmata al contropiatto Riviere e Co.). Precede il testo dedica del Dofino "Alle gentil et valorose donne"; in fine Errata e Tavola dell'opera. Prima edizione in formato in-4 e prima a cura del Dolfino, che ebbe il merito di riordinare e presentare l'opera boccaccesca nella sua integrità: "Niccolò Dolfino, cui deesi questa rara e bella edizione, ebbe veramente il merito di fare i primi passi per ridonare al Decamerone la sua integrità; per lo che questa ed. salì in molta fama" (Gamba 169). Edizione estremamente stimata dal punto di vista filologico, è ricercata anche per la sua rarità (censita in sole 8 Biblioteche pubbliche italiane); "...oggi di una certa rarità. E' la prima edizione che uscisse nel formato di quarto, e la prima in cui si cercasse di ridurre il Decameron alla sua integrità", Bacchi della Lega, 34). Ottimo esemplare, a grandi margini (nota di possesso ms. al titolo ''1640... Jo. Giorgio Barichia Romano'', ex libris al verso bianco del primo f.; tracce di polvere al titolo).. Borromeo p. 7 e V: ''...primo comparve alla luce il più corretto degli altri''. Zambrini 37. Mostre Certaldo n. 48. Olschki n. 3 (questo esemplare).

DV1702-23) CALEPINO (Ambrosio).
(Paris), venudantur ab Jodoco Badio et Joanne Parvo, (1516). in-folio. 398ff. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure française du 18e siècle). Belle édition parisienne imprimée par Josse Bade du célèbre dictionnaire dont la langue française, non sans humour, a adopté le nom pour désigner "un petit carnet de poche" (Grand Robert). Paru pour la première fois en 1502 et souvent réimprimé, cet imposant volume devint le dictionnaire latin de référence jusqu'à la grande refonte du Thesaurus latin de Robert Estienne en 1531. Badius, sur le titre même de cette édition, "se plaint des contrefaçons dont ses impressions sont l'objet ; il vise certainement l'usage fait par Nicolas des Prés de son nom, à la souscription, et de l'emploi d'un cadre imité du sien" (Renouard). Page de titre réparée loin du texte, et encollée. Très bon exemplaire par ailleurs. Renouard, Bibliographie de Josse Bade, p. 256 n°5 (le n°4 est la notice d'une édition contrefaite par Nicolas des Prés comportant exactement le même collationnement). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

BERNO, Abbot of Reichenau &; ADILBERTUS, of Augsburg
1516). Title-page within fine woodcut border and 4 full-page woodcuts by Leonhard Beck, one further full-page woodcut probably also by Beck, text partially printed in red and black. 4to. [90]ff. Modern vellum. First edition of this beautifully illustrated work chronicling the lives of Augsburg?s patron saints, Afra, Ulrich and Simpert; an edition in German was published later in the year. The life of Ulrich, bishop of Augsburg from 923, is by Berno of Reichenau (died 1048), the life of the 4th century St. Afra and that of the 9th century St. Simpert, are by Adilbertus, bishop of Augsburg from 887-99. The editor was Veit Bild (d. 1529), priest and mathematician at Augsburg. The church of SS. Ulrich and Afra, illustrated here, was newly built in late gothic style from c. 1474-1500 as the abbey church of the Benedictines and held the burial vaults of all three saints. At the end are found prayers, responses and hymns commemorating the saints printed in red and black in gothic type. The fine woodcuts by Leonhard Beck, which belong to the best of his work, comprise of the one-piece title border, a woodcut of the three patron saints standing together in a hall, with armorial shields below, a detailed woodcut of each saint (St. Simpert, for example, saving a child from a bear) against a landscape background and within an architectural border, the final woodcut of a view of the church of SS. Ulrich and Afra is without a border and is described by Dodgson as ?perhaps also by Beck? This shows the building with two towers only, a third was added later, possibly with the help of funds … [Click Below for Full Description]

[viii], CCLVI, folio, late 18th- or early 19th-century ?Scottish (?Scott) Russia, single gilt fillet on sides enclosing an elaborate blind tooled border and central panel featuring a Greek key interspersed with foliage, spine blind tooled in compartments and lettered in gilt direct, wide inner dentelles tooled in blind and gilt and the green/gray paste-downs blind tooled, gilt edges, covers detached. An esteemed edition. There is a contemporary ownership inscription at the foot of the title. There is, possibly in the same hand, or one nearly as early, on the verso of the last leaf a transcription of William Whittingham's metrical versions of Psalm 23, 'The Lord is only my support', subscribed 'Andro Challmes' - although this calligraphic signature is more like the hand of another transcription of part of the same text lower down, which is written in an italic hand. Andro 'Chalmes' has also written his name on fol. CCLV verso. This points to a Scottish provenance, a supposition borne out by later ownership inscriptions.

Italy II, 535. - Extremely rare post-incunable. The first printed edition of Pausanias' Description of Greece, printed by the Aldine Press. This edition was established by Marcus Musurus from the fifteenth century manuscript, which is now in Florence. It is described by N.G. Wilson as "one of the best of the editiones principles" (From Byzantium to Italy, p.155). Pausanias (ca. 115, Lydia - 180, Rome) was a renowned writer and geographer from Greek Asia Minor who devoted ten or twenty years to travelling in mainland Greece during and after the reign of Hadrian, in the brief golden age of the Roman Empire (2nd century A.D.). He is famous for his Discription of Greece, a comprehensive travel guide that describes ancient Greece from firsthand observations. A crucial link between classical literature and modern archaeology and very valuable for the study of the topography, mythology and archeology. Kühnius adopted the text of this Aldine edition. - - THIS BOOK IS NOT AVAILABLE IN OUR SHOP IN THE OUDE HOOGSTRAAT. PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT IF YOU WANT TO SEE THE BOOK. - -.

Separate t-p to each with printer's anchor and dolphin device, repeated on verso of last:very slight soiling to first t-p, two very small repairs to blank verso of final leaf of first part touching a handful of letters on recto, lower outer blank corner of final leaf restored. A very good clean, well margined copy in contemporary limp vellum remains of ties, '50' in contemporary hand at foot of title page, several early ms. case-marks to inside upper cover, a very handsome volume in its original binding. Part I comprises the second much expanded Aldine edition of Bessarion's great defense of Plato and Platonism, written in response to the translation of the 'Laws' by George of Trebizond who had taken advantage of its publication to print a sharp criticism of Plato and exalt Aristotle. Bessarion, one of the great humanists and Hellenists of the mid C15 had studied philosophy under Gemistus Pletho and imbibed from him a love of Plato, happily shorn of Gemistius' hatred of Aristotle. Bessarion rather advocated a synthesis of the two systems of learning, perceiving and appreciating their many points of contact and in the present work (ch. 5) demolishes Trebizond's attack by the simple device of enumerating verbatim all the errors of his translation and faults in his commentaries. The second part of the present work, here printed for the first time, comprises Bessarion's own translation of Aristotle's metaphysics and book one of those of Them … [Click Below for Full Description]

Every one who undertook the study of botany, or the identification of medicines swore by his words. Even as late as the beginning of the seventeenth century both the academic and the private study of botany may almost be said to have begun and ended with the text of Dioscorides" (Greene, Landmarks of Botanical History, p.219).

Aldus, Platon und Aristoteles - Bessarion:
Venedig, Werkstatt des Aldus & Andrea Torresani, 1516. - Folio, circa 32 x 21,8 cm. 8 Bll., 116, 55 (rec 53) SS., 1 Bl., mit 3 Druckermarken Marmoriertes Leder des 18. Jh., mit Rückenvergoldung und marmorierten Vorsätzen Adams B834; Renouard, Alde, 77, 6; EDIT 16 CNCE 5645. Erste erweiterte Ausgabe der bedeutenden Verteidigung Platons und des (Neo-)Platonismus durch den Kardinal Bessarion (1408-1472) in zwei Teilen, deren erster 1503 erschienen war, während der zweite hier erstmals abgeduckt ist. Ziel der Kritik ist Georg von Trapezunt (1395-1484), der in einem Vergleich der beiden grossen griechischen Philosophen Platon hinter Aristoteles gestellt hatte. Bessarion verzichtet auf eine Schmälerung der Verdienste des Aristoteles und betont stattdessen die Gemeinsamkeiten der beiden philosophischen Systeme. Die Autorität des Georg von Trapezunt schwächt er allein schon dadurch, dass er einen langen Katalog all dr Fehler aufzählt, die ihm bei der Edition und Kommentierung von Platons Nomoi unterlaufen waren (dieser Ausgabe hatte er mit seine Platonkritik beigegeben). Bemerkenswert ist auch der Raum, den Bessarion Platons Verdiensten um die Mathematik gibt. - Der zweite Teil enthält dann im Erstdruck die Übersetzungen der Metaphysik durch Bessarion aus dem Griechischen. - Sehr eleganter Druck aus dem Haus des 1515 verstorbenen Aldus Manutius, das von seinem Schwiegervater Andrea Torresano (1451-1528) weitergeführt wurde. - Die ersten und letzten Blätter im Innenbug unten mit kleinem braunem Fleck, im grössten Teil dazwischen kaum oder nicht sichtbar, am Ende auch kleiner Feuchtf … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: chez lÕAuteur, Barrois, Eberhart,, 1815-16.. 2 vols in 1, 4to, xlviii, 197, (3), 138; 348, (2, errata)pp. Light damp stain to first quire. Later red cloth, old gilt morocco label. Very good. ¦ First Edition, very rare. One of the classic books in the study of the occult sciences, in which Fabre-dÕOlivet (1767-1824) attempts to reconstruct the knowledge of ancient Hebrew claiming that the Book of Genesis had been mutilated and reduced to nonsense through bad translations and only by a thorough study of Samaritan, Chaldean, Syrian, Arabic, Greek and Chinese could its true meaning be reconstructed. His analysis of the roots of Hebrew presents it as a language whose grammar is applicable to most other languages. Vol. 1, mainly linguistic, is followed by a translation of the ten first chapters of Genesis, interpreted according to its spiritual meaning: this very detailed comparative study, to which many annotations and references are added, was put on the Index.

[Spanish Monarchy, c.16th - c.17th].
A manuscript collection of 32 miscellaneous documents relating to the Spanish Crown and its European foreign policy at the height of its power in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The documents cover a period beginning with the reign of Emperor Charles V (1516-56) and ending in the 1630s with that of Philip IV (1621-65). It includes known, important documents such as Charles V's letters of advice to his son, the 'Raggionamento di Carlo Quinto imperatore al Re Filippo ...' and 'Acuerdos del emperador Carlo V para su hijo' (18 January 1548); the letter from the Marqués de Pescara reporting to Charles V on the Battle of Pavia fought on 24 February 1525 and in which the French king, Francis I, was captured by Imperial-Spanish forces; and, the account arrest, imprisonment and death in 1559 of the Archbishop of Toledo, Fray Bartolomé de Miranda y Carranza. The majority of the documents, however, are less well-known though equally valuable for the history of the period. Among the lengthiest (ff. [50]) is the 'Discurso sobre la constitucion en que se hallan las cosas del Mundo este año de 1630 á 20 de Junio' which after commenting on the chaotic state of European affairs contains sections on Germany, France, Britain, Poland, Denmark, Sweden, Transylvania, the Netherlands, Italy, the Papacy, Venice, Genoa, Florence, Mantua and Monferrato, Parma, Modena, Urbino, Naples and Spain. Most of these documents relate to the Spanish Crown's relations with Portugal following Philip II's accession to the Portuguese Crown in 1580, the Papacy and the Italian Wars of the seventeent … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mandat, "das nyemannd aus dem hailigen Reich unnd sonnderlich Teutscher nacion weder zu Ross noch fuess, dem künig von Franckreich als unnserm und des Reichs offenbaren veinde zu diennst zuziehen" erlaubt sein solle, "sonnder wo dieselben so also des willenns weren, erfarn, angegriffen, und an irem leib gestrafft, auch der die darüber bey Franckreich beleiben, hab und gueter, als verwürckt und haimgefallen, eingezogen werden sollen [...]". - Kaiser Maximilians geschickte Heiratspolitik hatte das Haus Habsburg mit Spanien alliiert; aus der daraus entstehenden Einklammerung Frankreichs erwuchs der zweieinhalb Jahrhunderte währende sog. habsburgisch-französische Gegensatz, der erst mit Kaunitz' "Renversement des Alliances" ausklingen sollte. Das vorliegende Mandat geht dem Tod Ferdinands II. von Aragón und dem darauf folgenden Thronantritt von Maximilians Sohn Karl (als Carlos I., später Kaiser Karl V.) um eben eine Woche voraus. - Mit gedr. Handzeichen des Kaisers und einer gedr. Gegenzeichnung von Kanzler Cyprian von Serenthein. Kl. Fraßspur (etwas Papierverlust im Text). Verso von zeitgenöss. Hand bezeichnet: "Mandata das niemant in Franckreich zu roß oder fuß ziehenn soll".
