Ruscelli Girolamo ( 1518 - 1566 ) Venedig
Artist: Ruscelli Girolamo ( - 1566 ) Venedig; issued in: Venice; date: ca 1564. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 18,5 x 25,5; - description : Map shows total Great Britain; - vita of the artist: Girolamo Ruscelli (1518-1566) was an Italian polymath, humanist, editor, and cartographer active in Venice during the early 16th century. Ruscelli is best known for his important revision of Ptolemy's Geographia, which was published post humously in 1574. It is generally assumed that Alexius Pedemontanus was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an ëAcademy of Secretsí that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelliís academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. The academy was later imitated by Giambattista Della Porta, who founded an ëAccademia dei Secretií in Naples in the 1560s.

Climacus, the author, frequents the analogy of Jacob's Ladder as a basis for his teachings. He outlines the thirty steps of the ladder which correspond to the age of Jesus at his baptism/beginning of his ministry. Saint John Climacus, also known as John of the Ladder, was a 7th-century Christian monk at the monastery on Mount Sinai. He is revered as a saint by the Roman Catholic, Oriental Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches. Of John's literary output we know only the Κλῖμαξ (Latin: Scala Paradisi) or Ladder of Divine Ascent. The Ladder of Divine Ascent, or Ladder of Paradise (Κλίμαξ; Scala or Climax Paradisi), is an important ascetical treatise for monasticism in Eastern Christianity written by John Climacus in ca. AD 600 at the request of John, Abbot of Raithu, a monastery situated on the shores of the Red Sea.

Ais de bois recouverts de peau de truie estampée à froid (reliure de l'époque, gardes renouvelées, dos refait). Edition Originale posthume de cette très rare collection de traités composés par le théologien Jacques Almain (né à Sens, et mort en 1515). Eminent professeur à l'Université de Paris, Almain fut l'élève du théologien John Major (1469-1550) et l'une des figures majeures du conciliarisme dans le sillage de Jean Gerson. L'application qu'il fit de ces doctrines à la philosophie politique et à la théorie du droit naturel, en particulier dans sa "Quaestio in vesperiis habita" qui fut publiée pour la première fois dans le présent recueil, le fit considérer comme une charnière importante vers les thèses de Locke sur la nature individuelle du droit naturel des sociétés. L'ouvrage contient également divers traités sur l'autorité de l'Eglise, sur la puissance des princes, sur l'usure, etc. "(He) analysed the status and power of the church and its relations with civil society, with particular reference to the definition and limitations of papal authority in relation to councils, bishops and the secular authorities" (The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy).

Marcantonio RAIMONDI
"Bulino, 1517-1518 ca, privo di data e firma. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata con filigrana "ancora nel cerchio", rifilata al rame, piccole abrasioni e restauri perfettamente eseguiti negli angoli inferiori, per il resto in ottimo sttao di consevazione. Salomone e la regina di Saba è una stampa inusuale in quanto si presenta completamente finita in tutte le sue parti incise e con grandi aree lasciate completamente vuote. Inoltre, presenta anche un problema di attribuzione. La maggior parte dei primi studiosi, a cominciare da Vasari, attribuisce l'incisione a uno dei seguaci di Marcantonio Raimondi. Mariette ha suggerito che Marcantonio ha solo iniziato l'incisione e che poi sia stata portata avanti da un artista minore. L'opinione è condivisa da Shoemaker, poiché molte delle figure sono lavorate in maniera imperfetta con una serie di brevi tratti paralleli che corrono perpendicolarmente ai contorni, e per via dei chiari errori nelle basi e nei capitelli delle colonne, nonché nel frontone sovrastante la porta del tempio, a destra. La prova incompleta di Marcantonio della ""Riconciliazione di Minerva e Cupido"" indica che la proposta di Mariette non è priva di fondamento. L'autore del modello per Salomone e Sheba non è argomento meno complesso. Mariette credeva che il modello di Marcantonio fosse la scena di Raffaello, dello stesso soggetto, nelle Logge Vaticane, e in effetti si potrebbe pensare che Raimondi si sia basato uno studio finale per l'affresco. Passavant ha anche riconosciuto la connessione dell'incisione con un affresco in una v … [Click Below for Full Description]

KENTMANN Johann
Tiguri[ Zurich]: S.n.[ J. Gessner]. First and only edition of this rare treatise. Printer's device to title and 11 illustrations to text of various stones found in the human body. Small historiated capitals.19th century paper binding, shagreen title piece, faint yellow dampstain from leaf 15 to end.This was the first treatise to describe stones or gallstones, each of the 12 chapters exploring a part of the human body where such stones are found (intestines, kidneys, vesicle, and so on). Additionally, the work discusses various non-digestible objects ingested by people. Kentmann (1518-1574) was both a mineralogist and doctor, and thus particularly well placed to write on this subject. [Attributes: First Edition]

BINDINGS - MOSAIC). (ALDINE IMPRINT). AESCHYLUS
Venetiis [Venice]: In aedibus Aldi et Andreae Soceri, February 1518. EDITIO PRINCEPS. This is the first printing of the extant tragedies of the Greek playwright Aeschylus in a splendid mosaic binding and with illustrious provenance. Surprisingly, the binding here is unsigned, but the quality of the workmanship and the materials confirm this as the work of a master artisan. Similar bindings have been produced by Trautz-Bauzonnet, Emile Mercier, and the Club Bindery. Our previous owner Robert Hoe was one of the founders of this last workshop, and a mosaic "répétition" binding created for him by the Club Bindery, and with his monogram on the doublure (as here), was shown in the Grolier Club's exhibit of mosaic bindings in 1902 and again in its exhibition in 1906 of books bound at the Club Bindery. It appears in "Bound to Be the Best" as #11. The perfection of the finishing would be typical of the work of Léon Maillard, one of the best finishers of his generation, who was lured to America by Hoe in 1897 to join the team at the Club Bindery. Scholars of the Greek Classics will note that our Aldine editio princeps contains six plays--"The Persians," "Seven against Thebes," "The Suppliants," "Agamemnon," "The Eumenides," and "Prometheus Bound"--rather than the seven known to survive from the estimated 70 to 90 dramas Aeschylus (ca. 525-455 B.C.) produced. The explanation includes one of the few failures of the Aldine editors: when Aldus' brother-in-law Francesco d'Asola was preparing the text, he did not catch an imperfection in his source manuscript: it was lacking several pages … [Click Below for Full Description]

1518. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. "Peter Barbo (Paul II) could feign good nature, when occasion served, but he was so mean-spirited that when could not obtain what he aimed at by praying, entreating, and requesting, he would join tears to make them sooner believed. Therefore, Pope Pius sued to call him 'the godly Mary.' - Platina, Lives. Originally printed in 1479, Bartolomeo Sacchi's Lives of the Popes, was one of the first works published on the history of the popes of the Catholic Church. However, Sacchi (more commonly called Platina) used the opportunity to offer extensive discussion on the history of Rome and the pagan life that was prevalent throughout Roman history, as well as make poignant attacks on Pope Paul II. It quickly became the standard reference work on papal history. This 1518 post-incunable printing includes a number of Platina titles including Lives, Contra Amores, and Falso et vero bono as well as a text by Raffaelo Maffei, De vita quatuor Maximi Pontifici (Life of the Four Greatest Popes).

MORE, Thomas
4to, pp. 166-271, [1]. Roman letter, little Greek; title within architectural border by Urs Graf with fool and satyr on columns, historiated initials, large printer's device on verso of final leaf; contemporary underlining. A good copy in early limp vellum, remains of alternating red and green silk ties, contemporary title inscribed on spine; endpapers renewed; bookplate of the Library of St. Benedict's Abbey, Fort-Augustus, Scotland, and earlier shelfmark label on pastedown; on front endpaper, Pirie's bookplate and early ms shelfmark; early autograph by an unidentified 'Federici Quinetij' on title, occasional underlining by this hand. Second edition of the verses written by the champion of English Catholicism. Thomas More (1478-1535) was the most skilled and appreciated scholar of Henry VIII's reign prior to the latter's break with Rome. His refusal to join the king's reformation cost him his life. His visionary depiction of the perfect government on the island of Utopia inspired generations of thinkers and politicians. Despite More's hesitations, the Epigrammata first appeared into print as part of the collection issued by Froben in March 1518 under Erasmus' and Beatus Rhenanus' supervision, together with Utopia and Erasmus's poems. A few months later, between November and December, Froben published the same three-part collection, apparently a er some revision by the author. Fairfax Murray points out that 'more o en than not the three parts (either edition) are found separately'. Indeed, the BL has an independent copy of the Epigrammata of March (11409.g.47.).

Miechowita, Maciej
[Sigmund Grim, Marx Wirsung], Kraków, 1518. Second edition. In later paper. Title in figural woodcut border. Woodcut initials throughout. (58) p.; a6, b-g3 [last blank not present]. The first accurate geographical historical and ethnographical description of Eastern Europe. Miechowa's work provides the first systematic description of the lands between the Vistula, the Don and the Caspian Sea, Russia, Ukraine, and Tartaria, or Ptolemy's Sarmatia Asiatica and Sarmatia Europea. Tractatus is also the source of the earliest authoritative information about the Rus' people and the Cossacks. The Tractatus is dedicated to Stanislav I Thurzo, bishop of the Bohemian town Olomouc, and divided into two books of which the first and longer is concerned with "Sarmatia Asiana". It gives definition and description of the different Western Asian peoples and their territorial expansions, which includes the Goths, Alans, Vandals, Swabians, Hungarians and the Tartars among them the Cossacks and Nogais people. The second book centers on "Sarmatia Europiana" and describes the parts of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (Lithuania and Samogitia) and Muscovy and the regions, the Scythian territories (Perm, Baskird, Iuhra, and Corela). Maciej Miechowita (Miechów or Miechowa; 1457-1523) was a Polish historian, astronomer, and physician, the author of the first printed history of Poland, Chronica Polonarum (1519). His treatise, Tractatus de duabus Sarmatiis Asiana et Europiana et de contentis in eis was first published by Jan Haller, also in Cracow, a few months before the present second edition (on October … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eine Inkunabelausgabe, die 1494 in Pavia erschien, ging der hier vorliegenden voraus. "Christofo Barzizza, um 1400, aus Bergamo, Neffe des (Grammatikers) Gasparinus Barzizius, 1434-1440 Professor der Medizin zu Padua. Sicher eine von dem Humanisten gleichen Namens verschiedene Persönlichkeit" (GW 3672 zur EA Pavia 1494). - Dieser in der Offizin des Sigismund Grimm, Doktor der Medizin, entstandene Druck ist sicher als ein Versuch zu verstehen, die Erkenntnisse der berühmten italienischen medizinischen Kapazitäten aus den Universitäten Pavia und Padua nördlich der Alpen weiterzuverbreiten. Nach dem Titelblatt ist das Buch "legenti cuilibet perutile" (für jeden Leser sehr nützlich), was an eine allgemeinbildende Schrift denken läßt. Mehrfach erwähnt sind auch die iuvenes, also junge Leute, wobei man zuerst an Studenten denken wird. Jedoch hat Augsburg zu Beginn des 16.

Busche, Hermann von dem.
Köln, Nicolaus Caesar, 12. April 1518. 4to. 60 Bll.nnum. Mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf Titel und einigen Holzschnitt-Initialen. Späterer Pergamentband (etwas fleckig und gebogen). Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe von Hermann von dem Busches Hauptwerk, einer in acht Teile gegliederten Schrift zur Verteidigung der humanistischen Bildung, in der er das Studium der Wissenschaften und Künste, vor allem der Beredsamkeit und der Dichtkunst, gegen die Anhänger der scholastischen Methode behauptet. Das Werk wurde von Erasmus, mit dem den Verfasser eine langjährige Freundschaft verband, hoch geschätzt (vgl. Allen, Ep. IV, 1110). Hermann von dem Busche (1468-1534), der Hauptvertreter des westfälischen Humanismus, stammte aus adliger westfälischer Familie und wurde auf Burg Sassenberg bei Münster geboren. Nach Studien in Deventer, Heidelberg, Rom und Bologna kam er in seine Heimat zurück und trat eine Stelle beim Bischof von Münster Heinrich von Schwarzburg an, die er jedoch bald wieder aufgab, um sich in Köln erneut zu immatrikulieren. Während der folgenden Jahre unterrichtete er in zahlreichen norddeutschen Städten, 1502 war er in Wittenberg, 1503 in Leipzig. Ab 1507 wieder in Köln tätig, wurde er einer der wichtigsten Verteidiger Reuchlins im Judenbücherstreit. 1516 oder 1517 verliess er Köln und trat eine Stelle als Rektor der Lateinschule von Wesel an, wo er die vorliegende Schrift verfasste und sie dem dem Grafen Hermann von Neuenaar widmete.

DEL CARRETTO, Galeotto.
(In fine:) Mediolani, ex officina Minutiana kalen. Septembris M.D.xviii. impensis Ioannis Iacobi e fratrum de Legnano (Milano, 1518). in-8 (140x100 mm), (124, segn. *2, A-O8, P10). Legatura pergamena rustica coeva, conservata in elegante astuccio mod. m. pelle. Edizione originale, rarissima, di questo componimento teatrale composto verso il 1504 e dedicato a Guglielmo, marchese di Monferrato, presso la cui corte l'A. si rifugiò dopo che il suo castello di Finale fu raso al suolo dai Genovesi. E' un ''dramma allegorico'' in versi, senza la divisione in atti, che tratta un argomento profano nella forma della sacra rappresentazione, ed che include "altri componimenti come la versione in terza rima della ''Tavola di Cebete'' e il riassunto delle ''Metamorfosi'' di Apuleio" (D.B.I). Il piemontese Galeotto Del Carretto (nato nel contado di Acqui poco prima del 1455 e morto nel 1530) è personalità di spicco nell'aristocrazia, nella vita politica e culturale italiana a cavallo dei secoli XV-XVI; fu poeta, scrittore di teatro e storiografo (la sua ''Cronica di Monferrato'' in ottava rima, rimasta inedita per secoli benché fosse conosciuta e citata, ha visto la luce soltanto nel 1898, per cura di Giorcelli, nella ''Rivista di storia della prov. di Alessandria, VII, pp. 8-107"). Di lui il Vallauri, nella sua ''Storia della poesia in Piemonte'', parla a lungo e molto bene, dichiarando che ''un nostro paesano fu quegli che scrisse nel 1502 la prima tragedia italiana, la Sofonisba'' (op. cit. I, p. 71). Bell'esemplare assai puro, a grandi margini, con antica nota di possesso di ''Pietro … [Click Below for Full Description]

DEL CARRETTO, Galeotto.
del molto magnifico et celeberrimo poeta signor Galeotto marchese Dal Carretto. (In fine:) Mediolani, ex officina Minutiana kalen. Septembris M.D.xviii. impensis Ioannis Iacobi e fratrum de Legnano (Milano, 1518). in-8, ff. (124, segn. *2, A-O8, P10). Legatura p. perg. rustica coeva, conservata in elegante astuccio mod. m. pelle. Edizione originale, rarissima, di questo componimento teatrale composto verso il 1504 e dedicato a Guglielmo, marchese di Monferrato, presso la cui corte, l'A. si rifugiò dopo che il suo castello di Finale fu raso al suolo dai Genovesi. E' un ''dramma allegorico'' in versi, senza la divisione in atti, che tratta un argomento profano nella forma della sacra rappresentazione, ed che include "altri componimenti come la versione in terza rima della ''Tavola di Cebete'' e il riassunto delle ''Metamorfosi'' di Apuleio" (D.B.I). Il piemontese Galeotto Del Carretto (nato nel contado di Acqui poco prima del 1455 e morto nel 1530) è personalità di spicco nell'aristocrazia, nella vita politica e culturale italiana a cavallo dei secoli XV-XVI; fu poeta, scrittore di teatro e storiografo (la sua ''Cronica di Monferrato'' in ottava rima, rimasta inedita per secoli benché fosse conosciuta e citata, ha visto la luce soltanto nel 1898, per cura di Giorcelli, nella ''Rivista di storia della prov. di Alessandria, VII, pp. 8-107). Di lui il Vallauri, nella sua ''Storia della poesia in Piemonte'', parla a lungo e molto bene, dichiarando che ''un nostro paesano fu quegli che scrisse nel 1502 la prima tragedia italiana, la Sofonisba'' (op. cit. I, p. 71). Bell'esemplare … [Click Below for Full Description]
