MAROZZO, Achille (1484-1553)
Antonio Bergolli, 1517. "Il vero creatore della scherma italiana, da lui inalzata ad altissimo grado" (Gelli) In 4to (mm. 206x150); legatura moderna in piena pergamena rigida con titolo manoscritto al dorso realizzata con materiale antico; cc. [8], 148. Segnatura: +8 A-S8 T4. Elaborato frontespizio xilografico e 84 figure (di cui 7 ripetute) in legno nel testo, di cui 56 a piena pagina. Ventotto di queste figure recano il monogramma "b", la cui attribuzione a Francesco Barattini o Giovanni Britto rimane dibattuta. Nei visi dei combattenti effigiati potrebbero esservi i ritratti del maestro e dei suoi allievi. Sul risguardo anteriore firma di appartenenza "Cesare Morbio". Firme cassate al frontespizio. Aloni e fioriture sparse, margine esterno delle ultime quattro carte abilmente rifatto senza danno al testo, ma nel complesso copia più che buona. RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE, dedicata al conte Guido Antonio Rangoni, della più celebre ed importante opera italiana di scherma del Cinquecento, che fu più volte ristampata nel corso del secolo. L'edizione veneziana del 1517, che alcune bibliografie danno come prima, si è scoperto essere una tarda ristampa del Sessa con data erronea. "Il trattato del Marozzo si fonda sui principi della scuola bolognese che dal Moncio allo Zangheri, ha dato all'Italia un vero esercito di eccellenti schermitori e trattatisti. Il Marozzo però, dette un maggiore e miglior sviluppo a questi principi, che non i suoi coetanei.

Mod. flexibler Pergamentband im Stil der Zeit unter Verwendung eines gewaschenen Manuskriptblattes. Erste Ausgabe. - Eines der seltensten Werke Reuchlins und eines der grundlegenden Werke zur Geschichte der Kabbala während der Renaissance, in der wiederholt christliche Gelehrte wie Pico della Mirandola, Postel, Agrippa von Nettesheim und Reuchlin versuchten, die Lehren der Kabbala dem Abendland zu vermitteln. "Mehr als zwanzig Jahre nach 'De verbo mirifico' hat Reuchlin seine christliche Deutung der Kabbala noch einmal aufgegriffen, unter dem Titel 'Über die kabbalistische Kunst (De arte cabalistica). An seiner grundsätzlichen These - die jüdische Kabbala als 'theologia prisca', die in einem spekulativ interpretierten Christentum zu sich selbst kommt - hat sich nichts geändert, nur dass Reuchlins Kenntnisse der Kabbala inzwischen erheblich zugenommen haben. Wiederum sind es drei Gesprächspartner, die sich am Rande der Frankfurter Buchmesse begegnen: der getaufte Moslem Marranus, der Grieche Philolaus, der den Pythagoreismus vertritt, und der kabbalakundige Jude Simon. Wiederum steht die Kabbala für das adamitische Wissen, das über die biblischen Vorväter in die griechische Philosophie gelangt ist. Reuchlin bildet vielleicht nicht den Anfang der christlichen Kabbala, aber er ist auf jeden Fall ihr erster Höhepunkt. Über Paulus Ricius, Agrippa von Nettesheim, Heinrich Khunrath, diverse Paracelsisten und Rosenkreuzer, Jakob Böhme, Abraham von Franckenberg, Daniel Cze … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOMER
Woodcut Aldine device on title page and verso of final leaf. 2-6 line initial spaces, all with guide letters. Greek type throughout, except preface and register in Roman type. 8vo (165 x 105mm). 251, [1]ff. Modern vellum, red edges (vellum a little soiled, some corners uncut). Venice, In Aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri, A fresh, clean second volume of the second Aldine edition of the works of Homer, containing his Odyssey in Greek (the first volume, not present here, contains the Iliad - volumes are in most cases found separately). The editio princeps of the poet?s works was published in Florence in 1488; Aldus? edition, however, was the first time that Homer?s works had appeared in octavo format. Alongside the Odyssey in this volume are the Batrachomyomachia (?Battle of Frogs and Mice?) and Homeric hymns, as well as the preface carried from the first edition, addressed to Cardinal Girolamo Aleandro. Renouard asserts that this 1517 edition is better and rarer than the first, from 1504, and more correct than the third, of 1524; indeed, that it is so superior to Aldus? first edition that ?it should be considered a new text.? It was the 1517 Aldine edition that humanist theologian and Reformer Philipp Melanchthon acquired, likely on publication, and heavily annotated. Sparse pencil annotation in modern hand, with pencilled line numbering ff.103v-111r. Waterstaining to head of some leaves, one ink stain touching text. UCLA Ahmanson-Murphy, 153. Renouard p.80, 3.

Forteguerri, Scipione (Carteromaco); Hans Holbein, illus.
apud Joannem Frobenium, 1517. First Swiss edition of Italian humanist Forteguerri's commentary on the subjects and important figures of classical Greek scholarship, ranging from astronomy to theology. This text was first published by the Aldine press in 1504 and later incorporated into Henry Estienne's Thesaurus linguae graecae. The work begins with an absolutely fabulous => woodcut title-page frame by Holbein featuring the story of Salomé and the beheading of Saint John the Baptist; a very large historiated initial precedes the text and Froben's device appears on the final page. The text is printed in single columns using roman type with shouldernotes and occasional quotations printed in Greek; red-inked accents have been added throughout for ease of reference. Evidence of Readership: An early reader has added unobtrusive underlining, side brackets, and interlinear notes in an early hand to almost every page; a more recent owner has added extensive bibliographical commentary in red and black ink to the front free endpaper. Provenance: The bookplate of J.R.P. Forrest of Edinburgh, possibly the first Baronet of Comiston, appears on the front pastedown; that of influential book collector and Spanish printing scholar James P.R. Lyell (1871-1948), who donated a sizable portion of his medieval manuscript collection to the Bodleian Library, appears below that of Forrest. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

CAESAR, Julius
1517. "If you must break the law, do it to seize power: in all other cases observe it!" - Julius Caesar A rare collection of civil war histories and Julius Caesar war commentaries edited and translated by Augustino Ortica della Porta. This beautiful example features illustrated initials and hand-drawn figures in-text. Julius Caesar's war commentaries are some of the most prolific military writings! While not specifically known for his writing, Julius Caesar wrote this book which would become a mainstay in the Latin literature canon. It focuses on first-hand account of Julius Caesar in the Callic wars, but it was written as though from a third-person view. Includes an incredible contemporary manuscript at the end of the work.

[ Trusler, John ]
London: Sold by I. Souter, [ca. 1815-17] Early edition, first published in 1800. Another edition was published in 1811. This work is based on a prose version published in 1790 and it uses most of the illustrations from that work. The verse version was aimed at a younger audience and the change from prose to verse was "with a view to making them more entertaining." All editions are scarce, known in nine copies or less. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, ruled and stamped in gilt, gilt spine with gilt-lettered black morocco label, all edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. Twelvemo. Fifty-six woodcuts by John Bewick. Light offsetting from engravings, the occasional minor stain. Contemporary bookplate of Fraser, Fourth Baronet of Ledeclune (Sir William August Fraser) on front pastedown, small ink stamp to lower margin of front flyleaf. A very good, clean copy John Trusler (1735-1820) was a Church of England clergyman author, printer, educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and is credited with publishing the first thesaurus to the English language. He was a compiler of others' works, the most famous of which was a "methodised and digested" version of Lord Chesterfield's Letters to His Son (1774), published as Principles of Politeness (1775). Proverbs in Verse is prefaced by Trusler's "On English Prosody, or Rules for Reading Verse" and contains more than fifty proverbs. [Attributes: First Edition]

LULL (or LLULL, or LULLUS), Ramon
Jacob Marechal for Simon Vincent, Lyons, 1517. Third edition, the first edited by the Lullist Bernard de Lavinheta (d. ca. 1530), of the Ars Magna, his greatest work, now recognised as perhaps the first work in computer science. "Lull invented an 'art of finding truth' which inspired Leibniz's dream of a universal algebra four centuries later . The most distinctive characteristic of [his] Art is clearly its combinatory nature, which led to both the use of complex semi-mechanical techniques that sometimes required figures with separately revolving concentric wheels - 'volvelles', in bibliographical parlance - and to the symbolic notation of its alphabet. These features justify its classification among the forerunners of both modern symbolic logic and computer science, with its systematically exhaustive consideration of all possible combinations of the material under examination, reduced to a symbolic coding . The Art's function as a means of unifying all knowledge into a single system remained viable throughout the Renaissance and well into the seventeenth century. As a system of logical inquiry, its method of proceeding from basic sets of pre-established concepts by the systematic exploration of their combinations - in connection with any question on any conceivable subject - can be succinctly stated in terms taken from the Dissertatio de arte combinatoria (1666) of Leibniz, which was inspired by the Lullian Art: 'A proposition is made up of subject and predicate; hence all propositions are combinations.

Montpellier. Ab 1263 versuchte er die alleinige Wahrheit der christl. Lehre zu beweisen um vor allem die arabische Welt zu missionieren. Nach seiner Auffassung muß der Glaube durch den Verstand unterstützt werden, der die Glaubenswahrheiten aus den Prinzipien einer christl. Universalwissenschaft, der "Ars Magna" od. "Ars generalis", so der vorlieg. Titel seines Hauptwerkes, ableitet. Gewicht in Gramm: 350 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Musaeus of Athens
ORPHIC FORGERIES Nov. 1517; Musaeus; Post Incunable; Venice, In Aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri; Full Rebound Limp Vellum; Illustrated; 80 Pages; Greek/Latin Text; w3.9"xh6.4"; Extremely Rare! ATTRIBUTES: •Limp full Vellum cover design, Yapp cover edges, •Printer's woodcut device to title page and last page, •Two nice illustrations of Hero and Leander's tale, •First 16 pages in parallel text of Greek/Latin (Hero and Leander), •Remainder in Greek, & a Wonderful Read! SUMMARY: • The text of Musaeus (following the Aldine editio priceps of [1494/95]) is in Greek, with a Latin translation by Marco Musuro; the text of 'Orpheus' is in Greek only. The Argonautica and Orphic hymns follow the editio princeps of Philippo Giunta (Florence, 1500), while De Lapidibus - exposed as a fourth-century A.D. composition by Tyrwhitt in 1781 - is printed here for the first time: see Renouard, Aldus, p. 81. •The surviving fragmentary 'Orphic' hymns, etc., are certainly not C7-C6BC, but (says a review of the recent standard edition-in progress) 'all pseudepigraphic', being Hellenistic and later: nonetheless they were long taken as genuinely ancient, by Dorat, Caster, and the young Scaliger, the last translating some as by Orpheus himself, 'vates vetustissimus'. BACKGROUND: •Musaeus of Athens was a legendary polymath, philosopher, historian, prophet, seer, priest, poet, and musician, said to have been the founder of priestly poetry in Attica. He composed dedicatory and purificatory hymns and prose treatises, and oracular responses. •In 450 BC, the playwright Euripides in his play Rhesus describes him … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALERIUS, Maximus; PLUTARCH
1517 Valerius Maximus Dictorum + Plutarch Parallel Lives Greek Philosophy 2in1 An exceedingly rare pairing of two Greek Classics! A rare post-incunable printing of Valerius’s “Dictorum et Factorum” or Historical Anecdotes. This work is a collection of short stories, sayings, and phrases, memorial to Tiberius Caesar, who was reigning during Valerius’ lifetime. These anecdotes depict ancient Greek life and philosophy as well as famous kings and Caesars. Many modern historians claim that Valerius’s work was taken from Cicero, Livy, and Sallust, as well as other ancient historians and philosophers, rather than creating original works. However, many of the topics he writes about were controversial and unusual for the time – he wrote on homosexuality within the Roman army and the aristocracy of ancient Greece. While homosexually itself was written on, it was only considered tolerable in a ‘master-slave’ relationship; not within a public and high status sense. Other topics include omens, revenge, superstitious cults, women lawyers, modesty, crimes, and conflicting political views. Notable names mentioned in this famous work include Scipio Africanus, Gaius and Tiberius Gracchus, and Alexander the Great! This 1517 Philip Giunta edition was edited by Antonio Francino who included Plutarch’s ‘Parallel Lives’ to this edition. The Plutarch was translated into Latin from the original Greek by Guarino Veronese. Item number: #3325 Price: $1250 VALERIUS, Maximus; PLUTARCH Valerius Max.

Printer's device to verso of final leaf. Title in an engraved Renaissance frame. Adams (p. 1). 18th-century calf. Leaf a 4 is erroneously marked a3, following on from a3. Traces of yellowy dampstains from leaf 87 to leaf 95, at first intensifying, then disappearing. Repair to inner margin of leaf 33 (with a section of old paper). A good copy. The author's principal work, which could be translated as "the fruits of knowledge" or "the fruits of a liberal education". The work is a kind of reflection on knowledge and moral education. It's a book that is close in spirit to Thomas More's Utopia, which had appeared a year before. Richard Pace praises that work, calling it a work of genius (p. 82 De Moro). It was in reading Pace's (1482-1536) book that Luther became aware of More's work, wanting very much to read it. De fructu bears detailed witness to the fruits of a humanist and liberal education under the Tudors, the author recounting in a fairly free conversational tone the reading of the Classics, knowledge, and awareness of morality, all with a pedagogical intent. The work remains valuable and remarkable testimony to a humanist education. Richard Pace bega … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cornelius Tacitus - Filippo Beroaldo
Ex officina minutiana, 1517. In-4°; cc. (10), CCXXXIII, (13). Al frontespizio nota di possesso manoscritta che recita "Publii Cornelii Taciti liber, qui Io. Bapta Porrus possidet": si tratta probabilmente del poeta Giovanni Battista Porro, milanese. Al frontespizio è anche impressa un'iscrizione a salvaguardia dei diritti dell'opera. Legatura in pergamena coeva, con nome dell'autore manoscritto al dorso. Edizione delle Storie di Tacito (che contiene anche De situ moribus et populus germaniae libellus, Dialogus an sui saeguli oratores antiquioribus et quare concedant, Vita Agricolae) frutto dell'interesse che papa Leone X nutriva nei classici antichi e nella volontà di pubblicare le loro opere proteggendo il "diritto d'autore" degli editori e commentatori delle stesse opere. La presente edizione delle Historiae di Tacito (55-120 d.C) fu curata con studio filologico da Filippo Beroaldo il Giovane (Bologna 1472-Roma 1518), umanista, nipote e allievo di Filippo Beroaldo il Vecchio, segretario di Leone X, che lo nominò prefetto della Biblioteca Vaticana. Beroaldo aveva già pubblicato da un codice manoscritto i primi sei libri degli Annali di Tacito, che gli valsero fama futura (Pastor IV, 1 "certamente nessun papa ha celebrato con maggior energia l'importanza dei classici" pp. 455-56). In fine al testo, oltre a due lettere del pontefice, vi è anche una lettera del grande giureconsulto, storico e poeta di ambito milanese (1492-1550) Andrea Alciati a Galeazzo Visconti. E' questa la prima volta che appare un suo scritto a stampa.
