First edition, from the atlas Geographia CL Ptolemaei Alexandrini, latin edition- 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 Ptolemys 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 ?Academy of Secrets? that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli?s academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. The academy was later imitated by Giambattista Della Porta, who founded an ?Accademia dei Secreti? in Naples in the 1560s. [Attributes: First Edition]

Champier, Symphorien.
Venundatur ab Iodoco Badio [Ascensio]. Florilegium of ancient and medieval thought on medicine, hygiene, diet, and general health, compiled by a prominent Lyonnese physician (1471-1539). Following that Rosa Gallica is an additional treatise on procedures for doctors, entitled Margarita in tribute to the author's wife, Marguerite Terrail. This is the 1518 reimpression of the 1514 first edition, both Renouard and Vicaire saying with certainty that it faithfully reproduces that original. Its title-page bears an attractive woodcut of the author holding an oversized rose and pointing to a book, while Marguerite (with a daisy in hand) sits nearby in an enclosed garden with a book of her own. Binding: 19th-century divinity-style calf, spine with raised bands, blind tooling, and gilt lettering; covers framed and panelled in blind fillets, each cover => preserving an on-laid original 16th-century Flemish stamped-panel stamp at center. The front cover panel shows St. Roche (patron saint of plague victims) in pilgrim guise, displaying a plague sore on his thigh to an angel on his right, with a dog on his left; the scene bears the legend "St. Roche libera nos a p[este]." The back panel is presents two columns of facing animals (dogs, geese, wyverns, and monkeys) with the surrounding legend, "deus dedit / deus abstulit, [signed] pe X c / sit nomen / domini benedictum." Goldschmidt tentatively sources the St. Roche panel in Cologne, and more confidently attributes the animal panel to Pieter de Keysere (Petrus Caesaris), active in Ghent ca. 1511-59. All edges gilt.

Prima ed unica edizione aldina di questa raccolta di antichi testi di geografia e cosmografia.

[Johann Soter for Johann Potken], 1518. Small fol., 144 leaves, a-y6, ç6, &6. Roman, Hebrew, Greek and Ethiopic letters; title within elaborate border with interlacing floral decoration; occasional dust-soiling and marginal foxing, couple of tiny wormholes at foot and, in the first gathering, also to outer margin, old marginal repair to first five leaves, light dampstain at foot of final gathering. A good copy in late seventeenth-century English calf with gilt border; rebacked and restored, a little scuffed; on title, shelfmark and ink stamp of the Royal Society ‘ex dono’ of Henry Howard (1628-1684). The second book to be printed in liturgical Ethiopic (Ge’ez) and the first polyglot psalter including that language. The editor, Johann Potken (c.1470-c.1525), was also responsible for the previous and earliest appearance of Ge’ez in print with his Alphabetum seu potius Syllabarium chaldaearum, published in Rome with Marcellus Silber in 1513. A Hebraist and clergyman from Cologne, Potken was at the time in the Papal city to serve Leo X. There, he got in touch with the Ethiopic community flourishing around the Church of St Peter of the Abyssinians, learnt Ge’ez from the pilgrim monk Thomas Walda Samuel and cut (or commissioned) an Ethiopic type for Silber, which he later brought back to Cologne and used for this Psalter. Curiously, Potken, the pioneer of Ethiopic printing, incorrectly called this language ‘Chaldea’, an ambiguous term which was commonly used in relation to Aramaic. An earlier polyglot Psalter featuring Arabic and Aramaic in addition to the Hebrew, Greek and Latin … [Click Below for Full Description]

His wife Apollonia (the erstwhile mistress of Emperor Maximilian) braved great dangers in joining him in his captivity, and they are both portrayed kneeling in prayer beneath a woodcut of the Coronation of the Virgin, which is repeated twice in this book.

Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO"
Bulino, 1518 circa, privo di firma. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su sottile carta vergata coeva "testa di Re con corona in un cerchio", rifilata alla linea marginale, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il foglio appartiene a un gruppo di incisioni delle stesse dimensioni raffiguranti giovani donne accanto a vasi antichi. I corpi, sommariamente coperti, sono di grande bellezza ed eleganza. Secondo il Bartsch questi soggetti derivano da Raffaello, mentre sia il Passavant che recentemente Oberhuber sostengono la derivazione da Giulio Romano o da Luca Penni. Timbro di collezione al verso sconosciuto al Lugt. Bibliografia: Bartsch, XIV, p.353, 474; Passavant, p. 594, 90; Oberuhuber, Roma e lo stile classico di Raffaello, p. 196, 130. Dimensioni 140x210. Engraving, 1518 circa, without signature. Magnificent work rich in shades, printed on thin contemporary laid paper with "King’s head with crown in a circle", trimmed to marginal line, light oxidations, otherwside in very good condition. This sheet belongs to a group of engravings depicting young women with vases. The bodies, which are not very much cloche, are extremely beautiful and elegant. According to Bartsch, these subjects derive from Raffaello, while both Passavant and Oberhuber said they are after Giulio Romano or Luca Penni. Collection stamp on verso, not listed by Lugt.

First and only edition of a treatise on stones found in the human body, including the first known detailed account of gallstones, well-illustrated with 11 woodcuts showing more than 30 objects. In addition to stones, it includes growths and indigestible objects swallowed, divided into twelve chapters according to the part of the body in which they were found. Johannes Kentmann (1518-1574), as both mineralogist and city physician of Dresden and Torgau, was ideally suited to discuss this subject. Conrad Gessner included Kentmann's treatise in his compilation, De Omni Rerum Fossilium Genere, but it is separately signed and foliated for separate publication as well.A very good copy with generous margins. The text of slightly more than one page struck through in ink. Fascinating doctor/mineralogist's view of "stones" found in human bodies.

Colophon on G2r: [Venice: In Aedibus Aldi, Et Andreae Soceri, October 1518]., 1518. 8vo. ff. 233, [3]. complete with the 2 blanks, B8 & G3. Aldine woodcut device on title & verso of last leaf. 19th century paneled calf. armorial bookplate of Henry Richard Vassall Fox, Third Baron Holland [1773-1840]. First Aldine Edition of this collection of ancient geographical texts. Mela’s was "the first extant geographical work in Latin and the only Roman treatise of the classical period devoted exclusively to that subject." (DSB) His descriptive survey of the habitable world (Europe, Africa, and Asia) includes remarks on manners and customs, details on spectacular phenomena, and speculation on the causes of tides. "Despite his general inferiority as a geographer, Pomponius knew more than Strabo about the positions of Britain, Ireland, and the coasts of Gaul and north Germany; he was also the first to mention the Orkney Islands. Pomponius exerted a considerable influence on early medieval authors, both on his own account, and because Pliny used and cited his work." (Ibid.) Solinus’s description of the classical world was based on Pliny’s Natural History and Mela’s geography. The Itinerarium compiled by Antoninus provides a brief survey of the whole of the Roman Empire. Vibius Sequester lists the names of the principal rivers, mountains, etc. known to the Romans. Victor’s work on the topography of ancient Rome, which appears here for the first time, is an important source for the identification of Roman ruins. The last text is Dionysius Afer’s treatise on cosmography. Renouard I 198.9. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marcantonio RAIMONDI
Bulino, 1518-1520 circa, monogrammato in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con scala e fiore", rifilata al rame, numerose pieghe di carta restaurate, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione riproduce, con qualche variazione, un rilievo dell’arco di Costantino Sulla sinistra del foglio, Traiano è accolto da Roma, personificata, e incoronato d’alloro dalla Vittoria, mentre sulla destra i soldati romani combattono contro i Daci. Raimondi rinuncia ad ogni cornice, così da conferire maggiore ampiezza alla scena, mentre lo sfondo scuro dà risalto e rilievo alle figure, con un effetto scultoreo ottenuto anche grazie all’uso del bulino arrotondato, che accentua i volumi. L’artista ha aggiunto, invece, il muro sullo sfondo a destra, che ricorre anche nell’incisione di Marco Dente, della stessa epoca, raffigurante un altro rilievo di Costantino. L’incisione di Raimondi si data generalmente all’inizio degli anni venti del XVI secolo, perché stilisticamente affine alle scene di Amore e Psiche e all’Incensiere di Francesco I. Stegeimer e Shoemaker ritengono probabile che il disegno stesso dell’incisione sia opera del Raimondi, mentre non trova seguito l’ipotesi di Delaborde, per cui l’invenzione sia da attribuire a Giulio Romano. Engraving, about 1518-1520, monogrammed lower right. Magnificent proof, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "shield with scale and flower", trimmed to copper, numerous folds of paper restored, otherwise in excellent condition.
