        Fabulae.

      Venice: Joannes Tacuinus da Trino, 1519. Octavo, bound in contemporary paper covered boards, gilt titles to the spine. Woodcut device to the title page, annotations in an contemporary hand. In excellent condition with some browning, final leaf reinforced at margin. Only one example of this work has appeared at auction in the last 70 years. Rare and desirable. Aesop's Fables, or the Aesopica, is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and storyteller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 564 BC. Of diverse origins, the stories associated with his name have descended to modern times through a number of sources and continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic media. The fables originally belonged to the oral tradition and were not collected for some three centuries after Aesop's death. By that time a variety of other stories, jokes and proverbs were being ascribed to him, although some of that material was from sources earlier than him or came from beyond the Greek cultural sphere. The process of inclusion has continued until the present, with some of the fables unrecorded before the later Middle Ages and others arriving from outside Europe. The process is continuous and new stories are still being added to the Aesop corpus, even when they are demonstrably more recent work and sometimes from known authors. Manuscripts in Latin and Greek were important avenues of transmission, although poetical treatments in European vernaculars eventually formed another. On the arrival of printing, collections of Aesop's fables were among the earliest books in a variety of languages. Through the means of later collections, and translations or adaptations of them, Aesop's reputation as a fabulist was transmitted throughout the world. Initially the fables were addressed to adults and covered religious, social and political themes. They were also put to use as ethical guides and from the Renaissance onwards were particularly used for the education of children. Their ethical dimension was reinforced in the adult world through depiction in sculpture, painting and other illustrative means, as well as adaptation to drama and song. In addition, there have been reinterpretations of the meaning of fables and changes in emphasis over time.

        In hoc volumine continentur. Nervae & Traiani, atq; Adriani Caesarum vitae ex Dione, Georgio Merula Interprete..

      Aldus Manutius: [Venetiis, i.e. Venice], [1519]. [8], 422ff, [2]. Seventeenth-century (Scottish?) speckled calf, contrasting red morocco lettering-piece gilt. A handsome copy, with slightest of wear to joints, spine and some faint cracking to calf of lower board. Internally a remarkably fine, fresh, crisp copy. Seventeenth-century armorial bookplate of John Hay, Marquis of Tweeddale to FEP. With some marginal manuscript notes, in Latin and occasionally shaved, in the hand of Francisci Bologneti whose name is also inscribed to head of title. A compilation of the biographies of late Roman emperors, designated heirs and unsuccessful usurpers, between 117 and 284, from Hadrian to Carinus/Numerian. Long considered the work of six Scriptores, it has been known as the Historia Augusta since the publication of Isaac Casaubon's critical edition (Paris, 1603). Four centuries of classical scholarship have explored this troublesome text, known in the main from 9th and 10th century manuscripts but cited in works of the 6th, without coherent agreement on authorship, editorial involvement, date of composition and possible revision, original sources or its degree of historical value. The editio princeps appeared from the press of Bonus Accursius (Milan, 1475), with the first Aldine press edition appearing in 1516. This present, second, edition is extended by some 28 pages and considered the better of the two. From the library of John Hay, 1st Marquis and 2nd Earl of Tweeddale (1626-97), influential Scottish politician during the Commonwealth, following the Restoration and, after the Glorious Revolution, appointed Lord Chancellor of Scotland. Listed in Hazlitt's Roll of Honour (1908), recent auction and sale records suggest Hay had an extensive library of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century works in Italian and Latin, bound variously on the continent and within the British Isles. Adams S 781. Ahmanson-Murphy 181. Edit-16 16 CNCE 17204. Renouard 87.8. Second Aldine edition. 8vo.

        P. Fausti Andrelini foroliuiensis Hecatodistichon.

      [Paris]: V[a]enundatur a M. Nicolao De Barra, [1519]. 4to (19.7 cm, 7.75"). [30] pp. (final blank lacking). Posthumous — but still early — edition of Andrelini's collection of epigrams addressing a variety of groups and topics, including readers, sleep, and faith; here in => the first edition edited by Jean Vatel and with his commentary. Andrelini (ca. 1462–1518) was an Italian humanist, friend of Erasmus (until a dramatic break in 1511), and poet royal to both Charles VIII and Queen Anne of Brittany. Vatel was a similarly intriguing Renaissance man — the "data" page of the website of the Bibliothèque Nationale de France designates him, "Clerc, humaniste, professeur de grec, traducteur et commentateur, éditeur, dessinateur de caractères typographiques et imprimeur-libraire." Andrew Pettegree and Malcolm Walsby's bibliography of pre-1601 French books shows that Vatel was greatly interested in Andrelini and edited at least a dozen of his works; his commentary for this text was subsequently reprinted numerous times in the 16th and 17th centuries.    The text is neatly printed in two different sizes of roman font with one decorative and one historiated initial (a Virgin and Child); a sizable printer's device appears on the title-page. Searches of the NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC reveal only one U.S. institution (Yale) reporting owning this edition.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Moreau, Éditions parisiennes du XVI siècle, II, 1972; Brunet, I, 271–2; Graesse, Trésor de livres rares, I, 121; not in Adams. On Andrelini, see: Contemporaries of Erasmus, I; Pettegree & Walsby, French Vernacular Books: Books Published in France before 1601, 53120. Modern red foliate patterned paper–covered boards with gilt orange leather spine label, final blank lacking. Short interior tear without loss to title-page (perhaps a paper flaw?); light waterstaining and/or offsetting from old binding to upper outer corners and a little dust-soiling or creasing (the latter perhaps in the press). Light pencilling on one endpaper and one pencilled word on final page. => In fact withal a very pleasing little book.

        Ars Transmutationis Metallicae ... [with, as issued] Commentarium theoricae Artis Mettalicae Transmutationis.

      [Venice: Tacuino, 1519 (colophon of part I dated September 1518)]. First edition of one of the greatest rarities in the alchemical and chemical literature; this is an exceptionally interesting copy, bound with twelve leaves of contemporary script conveying an all-encompassing 'tree of human endeavours', charting the features and visually suggesting the relative position of human faculties and of most fields of knowledge, an extraordinarily wide-ranging array that includes disciplines such as economics and politics amongst more traditional trivium and quadrivium 'artes', and of course alchemy. "Pantheus wrote against spurious alchemy and he deals partly with the assay of gold and partly with the chemical preparation of various substances which were made at Venice in his time and were used in the arts. He describes, for example, the manufacture of white lead and of an alloy for mirrors. Pantheus was a priest at Venice, but seems nevertheless to have been devoted to chemical research" (Ferguson). It has only been recognised in the present century that the Ars transmutationis metallicae is also an important, and very early, contribution to atomism, the precursor to modern atomic theory. Emil Offenbacher, the most important dealer in alchemy and chemistry books of the last century, described the first edition of this book as "almost unobtainable today" (his Cat. 37 (1985), item 137, in which he described the 1550 edition). The greatest collector of early chemistry books of the past century, Roy G. Neville, never found a copy. ABPC/RBH list just one copy in the last 80 years (and that in a modern binding). OCLC lists three copies in US (Claremont Colleges, Delaware, Madison (Wisconsin)). "During the course of the sixteenth century, a pronounced trend emerged toward the permeation of Christian Kabbalah with alchemical symbolism. This convergence of alchemy and Kabbalah was perhaps to be expected as both arts were concerned with knowledge of creation. Both arts, too, advocated a secret transmission of knowledge from master to pupil, with initiations, ordinations, and revelations from God and his angels. To a certain extent, the kabbalists' reduction of language to its elemental letters corresponded to the alchemists' reduction of matter to its primal state; the permutation of letters and words corresponding to the circulation and combination of elements and substances. The first known combination of alchemy and Kabbalah can be found in the works of the Venetian priest Giovanni Agostino Panteo (d. 1535), who develops a hybrid "Kabbalah of Metals" in two works: the Ars transmutationis metallicae (Art of metallic transmutation, 1519) and Voarchadumia contra alchimiam (Voarchadumia against alchemy, 1530)" (Forshaw, p. 149). The alchemical atomist tradition may originate with the De lapide philosophorum attrinuted to one Frater Effararius or Ferrarius, a work probably of late mediaeval origin, much of which is a commentary on Geber's Summa perfectionis. Geber's work advocates a corpuscular theory, in which the smallest parts of matter are particles resistant to decomposition by the techniques of the laboratory, but which are not absolutely indivisible as advocated by the atomists. "Brother Effararius's atomistic interpretation of Geberian corpuscular theory received considerable expansion in the early sixteenth century, with the publication of Giovanni Agostino Pantheo's Ars et theoria transmutationis of 1518. Pantheus, a Venetian priest, was deeply interested in linking alchemy to the Cabala, but also in microstructural explanations of matter. He begins these speculations by commenting on a passage from Aristotle, ... a 'heterodox' version of Aristotle's definition of mixture ... In Pantheus the Aristotelian passage appears thus: "Therefore according to the Philosopher in Book One of De generatione et corruptione, 'mixture is the union of the altered miscibles conjoined per minima.' Note 'miscibilium', that is, of the elements." The genuine Aristotle had of course said in Book 1, Chapter 10 of De generatione that 'Mixture is the union of the altered miscibles.' The astonishing addition of the words per minima to this definition of mixture has the effect of turning Aristotle into an outspoken corpuscularian, or as Pantheo would have it, an atomist. For the Venetian priest immediately adds the gloss ... "Likewise note 'per minima', that is, through indivisibles. For if something could be divided, then it would not be a minimum, since every part must be less than its whole. Therefore it appears that the mixture of the elements is brought about through minima, that is, per indivisibilia. And that 'element' is the smallest of existing bodies appears through its definition. For 'element' is the smallest particle of the body." After making it clear that he considers Aristotle an atomist, Pantheo then goes on to apply this theory to the alchemical process of 'putrefaction,' whereby a metal or other substance is dissolved into minimal particles. He explicitly compares the dissolution to the procedure of calcination, saying that both involve the loss of an interparticular 'glue'. Pantheo proceeds to develop an elaborate analogy between the body-to-be-putrefied and a home-to-be-demolished: "For an integral whole (for example a house) consists of integral parts. When one part has been destroyed or removed from its place, which it had before, the form in the whole, or the essence of the whole house, is destroyed, although the stones, boards, and cement from which the house was made remain. So it also happens in our subject. For when the moisture is separated from its own place which it had in the elemental mixture, as it were an integral part in the whole, and this occurs through heat raising it, and separating it from the other parts, the form and essence of the mixture itself is annihilated wholly. But the substance of the moisture is not annihilated, nor can it be." This interesting comparison rests on an analogy between the mortar joining the building-components of the house to the humidity glueing the elemental particles of a dissolving metal together ... It is interesting to note that precisely the same house-analogy is used in Isaac Newton's chymical notebooks to describe putrefaction" (Newman, pp. 302-4). "In his preface to the pope [Leo X], Pantheus describes his booklet as very recently put together from varied reading of the philosophers. He wishes it to contain the sincere truth of the secret of transmutation, to abolish deceits and incredulity, to reveal the stone to the sons of wisdom and to conceal it from the ignorant. Reading his book would have saved those who have followed false interpretations all their time and expense. Similarly in a second preface to the reader he promises to elucidate completely this most weighty theme of the transmutation of metals. Actually he only succeeds in making the matter more mysterious by various charts, diagrams and columns of letters and numbers as well as the Tetragrammaton and Greek and Hebrew characters. After the manner of the Lullian alchemical treatises he sets letters for stages in the process of transmutation and gives diagrams of the four elements and primary qualities ... Numerical equivalents are given for the different letters of the alphabet, and the totals are added up at the base of the columns ... "After the Art of Metallic Transmutation ends with the date, September 7, 1518, there follows a new title page inscribed, 'Commentary of the Theory of the Metallic Art of Transmutation.' It is addressed to a noble Pole named William Hyerosky. In it Pantheus alludes to 'those Institutes of ours edited in former years' and over which he has heard that Hyerosky pores day and night. He denies that these Institutes were incomplete as published and left something for verbal interpretation like the cabala. But he now explains what his Hebrew characters represent and the numerical value of some letters. He adds some recipes, then reverts to columns of numbers in his closing pages. It is at the close of this Commentary that we find the final date of publication, December 30, 1518. It is not quite clear whether by the title, Institutes, Pantheus refers to the preceding Ars transmutationis, which may have circulated in manuscript form for some time before being printed, or to some other earlier production of his. "It seems probable that, after the publication of this volume of 1518, someone called to the attention of its author or the papal court or the Venetian government the existence of a papal decretal and a decree of Venice against alchemists. For in 1530 Pantheus brought out with the same printer at Venice a book entitled, Voarchadumia contra alchimiam: ars distincta ab archimia et sophia. As this title suggests, he now professed to be writing not on alchemy but on Voarchadumia, an art distinct from alchemy. This Voarchadumia he represented as true wisdom, the very opposite of alchemy, a sort of 'cabala of metals' ... Yet he repeats most of his work of 1518 in the course of the Voarchadumia ... Both the Voarchadumia and the work of 1518 were reprinted together at Paris in 1550, and again, but omitting both the papal edict and the preface to the pope, in the second volume of Zetzner's Theatrum chemicum as published in 1615 and in 1659" (Thorndike, pp. 538-40). Duveen, p. 449 ("of great rarity"); Ferguson, II, p. 167; Hoover 623; Stillwell 866. Thorndike, V, pp. 537-40. This first edition not in Schmiedler, Geschichte der Alchemie.

        [HISTORIAE AUGUSTAE SCRIPTORES]. NERVAE & TRIANI, ATQ; ADRIANI CAESARUM VITAE EX DIONE [etc.]

      Venice: Aldus and Andrea Torresani, 1519. Second Aldine Edition. This is a beautiful example of an Aldine printing in a most appealing modern binding. The text consists of various writings by Roman rulers, and most notably retains the speech of the salacious third century emperor Heliogabalus to the gathering of prostitutes ("meretrices"), which is sometimes lacking in other copies because of its potentially offensive material. The first Aldine edition of this text was published in 1516, but this second edition, as Renouard points out, is more extensive. Our copy comes from the libraries of two prominent Irishmen: Edward Sullivan (1822-85), a distinguished lawyer and member of Parliament, and his longtime friend William O'Brien (1832-1899), a judge of the High Court of Justice. Both were avid collectors with similar interests in early printing and incunabula, including an excellent selection of Aldines.. 166 x 92 mm. (6 1/2 x 3 5/8"). [8], 422, [2] leaves.Edited by Gian Battista Egnazio. Second Aldine Edition. ELEGANT 19TH CENTURY BROWN MOROCCO BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed on the front turn-in), covers with black morocco border and alternating thick and thin gilt rules, central gilt Aldine device, raised bands, compartments with black morocco onlays similar to the border, gilt titling, turn-ins delicately gilt, all edges gilt. With printer's device on title and final leaf. Ruled in red (now faded to brown). Front pastedown with the bookplate of William O'Brien dated 1899 and the bequest label to the Milltown Park Library, bookplate of Sir Edward Sullivan; free endpaper with small label noting author and date. Renouard, p. 87 (8); Ahmanson-Murphy 159. Leaves with just the occasional trivial blemish and a small marginal stain touching two signatures towards the end, but A SPLENDID COPY, the text consistently excellent, and THE LOVELY BINDING IN PRISTINE CONDITION. This is a beautiful example of an Aldine printing in a most appealing modern binding. The text consists of various writings by Roman rulers, and most notably retains the speech of the salacious third century emperor Heliogabalus to the gathering of prostitutes ("meretrices"), which is sometimes lacking in other copies because of its potentially offensive material. The first Aldine edition of this text was published in 1516, but this second edition, as Renouard points out, is more extensive. Our copy comes from the libraries of two prominent Irishmen: Edward Sullivan (1822-85), a distinguished lawyer and member of Parliament, and his longtime friend William O'Brien (1832-1899), a judge of the High Court of Justice. Both were avid collectors with similar interests in early printing and incunabula, including an excellent selection of Aldines.

        Las Obras

      8vo (153x98 mm). 271, (1 blank) leaves. Woodcut imperial coat-of-arms on the title-page. Contemporary or slightly later vellum over boards, spine with two small raised bands and inked title (below the title are the capital letters "ICO"; a later shelf label is pasted on the front cover). On the title-page later manuscript ownership's inscription: "Bibliot. Coll. Regien.". Loss of vellum in the lower part of the spine, small stain on the front cover, title-page a bit soiled, slightly browned throughout, insignificant dampstains in the upper margins of the last 10 leaves, but all in all a very good, genuine copy. RARE EDITION, probably the sixth or seventh, printed in Rome by the Spanish typographer Marco Antonio Martínez, better known as Antonio Salamanca from the name of his hometown, who was active in Rome between 1519 and 1547. Despite the corrections and additions announced in the title-page, the edition is a faithful copy of the first imprints of the work. The first edition of Boscán e Garcilaso's poetical works appeared in Barcelona on March 1543, followed by over twenty reprints issued before the end of the century, which testify the incredible success of this collection: Lisbon, 1543; Medina, 1544, 1553; Antwerp, 1544, [1545], 1550, 1554, 1556, 1569, 1570, 1576, 1597; Toledo, 1547, 1558; Lyons, 1549; Venice, 1553; Valladolid, 1553; Estella, 1555; Barcelona, 1554; Granada, 1575; Alcalá de Henares, 1575; Zaragoza, 1577. Boscán's poems are divided into three books: the first comprises his work of medieval tradition; the second contains ninety-two sonnets and ten "canciones' in the Italian style; book three includes the Epístola a Mendoza, the allegorical poem Octava rima and the famous poem Leandro, based on the ancient Greek fable of "Hero and Leander' (cf. W. Boutcher, "Who taught thee rhetoricke to deceive a maid?": Christopher Marlowe's Hero and Leander, Juan Boscán's Leandro, and renaissance vernacular humanism, in: "Comparative literature", Eugene, University of Oregon, 52, 1, 2000, pp. 11-52). Book four contains Garcilaso's poems. Under the influence of Petrarch and the Italian Renaissance poets as well as the Classical authors, Garcialso wrote elegies (Elegías), eclogues (églogas, including an égloga a Boscán), canzoni (Canciones), and sonnets (Sonetos), in which he admirably adapts the eleven-syllable line to the Spanish language. The collection was published after Boscán's death by his widow, Ana Girón de Rebolledo. Garcilaso had died in 1536 and Boscán had been charged with the task of editing some of his friend's works together with his own. But he also died a few months before the book was issued on March 1543. The main innovation of this collection and one of the major reasons of its big impact (with all the reactions that followed) lies in the idea itself of publishing together the two most innovative Spanish poets of the time. Despite its posthumous appearance, the edition was carefully prepared by Boscán. Even a most superficial analysis of the first 1543 edition (which is strictly followed by the present) reveals a clear editorial strategy. The disposition of the texts reflects, in an organic and consistent manner, the different stages of Boscán and Garcilaso poetic career, from the eight-syllable poems of the old Spanish tradition (which are almost completely neglected in the collection) to the newly-introduced Italian verse forms, and shows Boscán's aim of giving to the collection an international character and the dignity of the Classical and Italian poetry. The collection opens with a programmatic poem to the Duchess of Soma (not accidentally a woman; Boscán's detractors accused his poetry of being for women, "ser para mujeres"), in which Boscán expresses his judgment of the previous Spanish lyrics and explains his poetical program, shared with Garcialso, that was followed for more than a century by most of the Iberian poets (cf. P. Ruiz Pérez, Las "Obras' de Boscán y Garcilaso: modelo editorial y modelo poético, in: "Calíope", vol. 13, no. 1, 2007, pp. 15-44). Juan Boscán Almogávar (Joan Boscà i Almogàver in Catalan) was born in Barcelona somewhere between 1487 and 1492. Around 1507, he moved to the court of Fernando and Isabel, where he became a student of the Italian humanist Lucio Marineo Siculo, who taught him how to translate Italian and Classical poetry into Spanish. In 1522 Boscán was appointed as a tutor to Fernando Álvarez de Toledo, Duke of Alba. In this same year, he participated with his close friend Garcilaso de la Vega (whom he had first met at the Spanish court) to the defense of Isle of Rhodes against the Turkish invasion. Boscán fought against the Turks again in 1532 in Vienna with Álvarez de Toledo. Boscán died on September 1542, while he was working at the publication of his and Garcilaso's poems (cf. G.B. Kaplan, ed., Juan Boscán, in: "Sixteenth-Century Spanish Writers", vol. 318: Dictionary of Literary Biography, Chicago, 2006, pp. 14-21). Boscán was the first poet to incorporate hendecasyllable verses into Castilian. Together with Íñigo López de Mendoza, who wrote sonnets in the Italian style, Boscán was one of the first to use the present-day structures of the sonnet in Spanish poetry. It was Andrea Navagero, Venetian ambassador to Spain, who persuaded Boscán to abandon the traditional eight-syllable verses of Spanish poetry (cf. A.J. Cruz, Imitación y transformación: el petrarquismo en la poesía de Boscán y Garcilaso de la Vega, Amsterdam-Philadelphia, PA, 1988). At the Spanish court, in the 1520s, Boscán was also influenced by another Italian ambassador and a friend of Navagero, Count Baldassare Castiglione. Boscán was urged by Castiglione himself and Garcilaso to translate Castiglione's epoch-making book Il Cortegiano into Spanish; his translation was published in 1534 to great success (cf. M. Morreale, Castiglione y Boscán: el ideal cortesano en el renacimiento español, Madrid, 1959). If Boscán was the pioneer of the new Spanish poetry, there is no doubt that Garcilaso de la Vega was the most influential poet to introduce Italian Renaissance verse forms, techniques and topics to Spain. His poetry was very popular during his lifetime and has continued to be so without interruption until the present. He had a great influence on all the major subsequent Spanish authors, such as Jorge de Montemayor, John of the Cross, Miguel de Cervantes, Lope de Vega, Luis de Góngora and Francisco Quevedo (cf. R.P. Sebold, Garcilaso de la Vega en su entorno poético, Salamanca, 2014). Garcilaso was born in Toledo between 1501 and 1503, the second son of nobleman who granted him an extensive education and after his death a sizeable inheritance. Garcialso mastered five languages (Spanish, Greek, Latin, Italian and French) and learned how to play many music instruments. In 1520 he joined the imperial guard of Charles V and in 1523 was made a member of the Order of Santiago. Garcilaso took part in most of the campaigns conducted by Charles V in Italy, Germany, Tunisia and France. In 1532, for a short period, he was exiled to a Danube island, where he was the guest of Count György Cseszneky. Garcilaso fought his last battle in France, dying on October 1536 in Nice from an injury sustained in the battle of Le Muy (cf. B. Creel, Garcilaso de la Vega, in: "Dictionary of Literary Biography", vol. 318: Sixteenth-Century Spanish Writers, G.B. Kaplan, ed., Chicago, 2006, pp. 62-82). Edit 16, CNCE7190; P.

        Pomponius Mela Julius Solinus Itinerarium Antonini Aug Vibius Sequester P Victor De regionibus urbi Romae Dionysius Afer de Situ orbis

      Florence: the heirs of Filippo Giunta, 1519. Small octavo, italic letter, capital letters neatly rubricated; numerous annotations of differing vintage; an excellent copy in contemporary Italian vellum, flat spine lettered and banded in gilt. Scarce edition of this important collection of classical geographical texts, closely based on the Aldine edition published a year earlier, and including the especially famous works by Pomponius Mela and Julius Solinus. Pomponius Mela's work (see previous item) is the classic early exposition of the argument that the known landmasses in the northern hemisphere must have antipodean counterparts to balance them. Solinus was a legendary Roman geographer whose Polyhistor survived in manuscript until the age of printing, first appearing in print in Venice in 1473. His text, much of it based on Pomponius Mela, also incorporated material from Pliny's Natural History, as well as remarks on a number of historical, social, religious and natural history questions. Other material in this edition includes a translation into Latin of the Periegesis of Dionysius Afer, a 1st-century Greek world geography.

        Biblia cum summarioru[m] apparatu pleno quadrupliciq[ue] repertorio insignita

      Lyon: Jacques I Mareschal [for Simon Vincent], 1519. 8vo (180 x 126 mm). [30], 500, [54] pp. (with pagination errors). Title and first table printed in red and black, text in two columns, indices and Gothi summary in 3 columns, publisher's woodcut device (Baudrier no. 2) on title and verso of final leaf (otherwise blank), full-page Creation woodcut in six compartments within ornamental border, facing first page of Genesis, historiated woodcut initials throughout; red paragraph marks to opening page and some red highlighting to the facing woodcut border. Mainly faint marginal dampstain in upper margins, light discoloration to outer margins. Contemporary Flemish(?) blind-tooled calf over wooden boards, sides with leafy roll-tool border enclosing central panel with intersecting triple fillets forming a saltire design, the compartments filled with a repeated foliate tool arranged symmetrically, one (of two) fore-edge clasps, two catches; many deckle edges preserved (worn, a few small chips to leather, pastedown endpapers renewed). Provenance: early ownership inscriptions on title: Mr[?] Cornelius Adamus ter Borch[?] / Nu 7; and Siba Lÿken(?); contemporary marginal notes and some text markings (crosses in margins and underlinings) in first few books (Genesis-Deuteronomy); 17th and/or 18th-century mainly philological annotations in Genesis and Exodus and in the indices, including full-page of notes on 2E5v.*** A sixteenth-century Lyonese Bible printed in very small types and with woodcut illustrations; this copy with abundant contemporary annotations and in a contemporary blind-tooled calf binding, probably Flemish. Mareschal's Bibles were bestsellers; this is the fourth of six octavo editions from his press. The publisher Simon Vincent belonged to the powerful Compagnie des Libraires in Lyon, whose members helped Mareschal during his early years, impressed by his skill, conscientiousness and sobriety ("a rare trait among printers of this period," notes Baudrier), qualities which contrasted markedly with those of the printer Michel Topie, whose press Mareschal had acquired in 1512 (Baudrier 11:383). The text of Mareschal's octavo Bibles follow that of the Bible printed in Basel by Johann Petri, which was the first Bible to contain marginal notes citing canon law. Petri's edition included a six-line commendatory poem by Matthias Sambucellus on the title, which is repeated in Mareschal's editions, here with the first word of the last line incorrectly given as "Omne" instead of "Omine." The apparatus includes four tables and a glossary of Hebrew names. The last two quires contain a rhyming mnemonic Biblical summary, by the minorite friar Franciscus Gothi, in which each four-line verse summarizes a Biblical chapter. It is not recorded by Baudrier or Gültlingen; apparently buyers had the choice of including it or not in their copies. This portable glossed Bible, densely and economically printed, with no break between the OT and NT, is nonetheless enlivened by hundreds of historiated woodcut initials from woodcut alphabets designed by Guillaume Leroy, who also designed the six-part full-page woodcut of the Creation (cf. Baudrier 11:380, 397, and 448). Adams B-997; Pettegree & Walsby III:57271. Darlow & Moule 6093 (note); Baudrier,11:401; Gültlingen 2:209, no.56 (neither listing the Gothi quires).

        Ars Transmutationis Metallicae…

      Woodcut diagrams in the text (several full-page), tables, & woodcut border on folio 3r. Large & handsome woodcut initials. Printing in Greek & Hebrew. 38 numbered leaves. Small 4to, antique vellum (a little warped). [Venice: J. Tacuinus, 1519; colophon of first part dated 7 Sept. 1518]. First edition of one of the greatest rarities in the alchemical and chemical literature; I have been looking and waiting for a copy for nearly forty years. Emil Offenbacher, the most important dealer in alchemy and chemistry books of the last century, described the first edition of this book as "almost unobtainable today" (his Cat. 37 (1985), item 137, in which he described the 1550 edition). It is also interesting to note that the greatest collector of early chemistry books of the past century, Roy G. Neville, never found a copy. "Pantheus wrote against spurious alchemy and he deals partly with the assay of gold…and partly with the chemical preparation of various substances which were made at Venice in his time and were used in the arts. He describes, for example, the manufacture of white lead and of an alloy for mirrors…Pantheus was a priest at Venice, but seems nevertheless to have been devoted to chemical research."-Ferguson, II, p. 167. Fine and large copy. ❧ Duveen, p. 449-"of great rarity." Hoover 623. Stillwell 866. Thorndike, V, pp. 537-40-"He promises to elucidate completely this most weighty theme of the transmutation of metals. Actually he only succeeds in making the matter more mysterious by various charts, diagrams and columns of letters and numbers as well as the Tetragrammaton and Greek and Hebrew characters…Other alchemical authorities cited are Hermes,…Ioannitius, Avicenna, Rodianus, Rosinus, and Vincent. Some of these Pantheus could have consulted only in manuscripts.".

Maiis), in folio piccolo, leg. settecentesca in piena pelle, piatti inquadrati da cornice in oro a triplo filetto con ferri fitomorfi agli angoli interni, dorso a sei nervi, con titolo e ferri floreali in oro negli scomparti, tagli spruzzati, cc. [4], CLXXXIX, [19], bianca la carta II4. Con marca editoriale al recto di c. II3. Le ultime carte non numerate recano libri dell'Argonautica allora attribuita ad Orfeo. Esistono esemplari che recano in fine altre 6 carte di indice: ma come risulta chiaro da una analisi delle copie presenti in ICCU la variante principale dell'edizione è come il nostro esemplare, senza l'indice finale. Precede il front. una carta che reca l'elenco, manoscritto nel Settecento, delle edizioni a stampa di Valerio Flacco. Volume importante, curato dall'umanista bolognese Giovanni Battista Pio: l'"editio princeps" di Valerio Flacco fu pubblicata a Bologna nel 1474, ma G.B. Pio trovò nuovi codici e ripubblicò il testo con gli ultimi due canti che mancavano e con l'aggiunta dell'Argonautica. Qualche spellatura esterna, qualche restauro ben fatto al dorso, la punta inferiore del piatto anteriore rifatta, ma senza dubbio bell'esemplare. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        In Novum Testamentum ab eodem denuo recognitum, annotationes, ingenti nuper accessione per autorem locupletatae.

      Basel: (Johann Froben), 1519. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio [34.5 x 22.5 cm]. 576 pp., lacking final two leaves Bb vii-viii (address to readers, errata, index ternionum, and printer's device). Handsome woodcut title page given to Ambrosius Holbein, woodcut initials throughout. Bound in contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden boards, somewhat rubbed, some wormholing, chipping on spine, clasps missing, raised bands, remnants of vellum manuscript pastedown inside back cover. Some page toning and waterstaining, occasional marginal chipping and small tears not affecting legibility of annotations.First collected edition of Erasmus of Rotterdam's annotations to his Greek New Testament, containing manuscript marginalia derived from the polymath Sebastian Münster's Hebrew translation of the Gospel of Matthew. The volume recalls the importance of Hebrew studies among Renaissance humanists and serves as a fascinating reminder of the double role played by Jewish language and culture during the Protestant Reformation. Fervent Reformers examined Jewish antiquities both to equip themselves better in arguments with contemporary rabbis and to understand more clearly the original Hebrew texts that lay behind the Latin Vulgate defended by so fiercely by sixteenth-century Catholics. In a precise sixteenth-century humanist hand, an unidentified scholar painstakingly copied out the Latin/Hebrew commentary from Münster's Evangelium secundum Matthaeum in lingua Hebreica (Basel, Henricus Petrus, 1537) into his Erasmus. This contemporary scholiast shows some facility with Hebrew, fluidly reproducing the language's difficult characters (but rarely quoting longer Hebrew passages in their entirety). The Book of Matthew was a natural point of focus for Christian Hebraists: Early church authorities, including Jerome, held that Matthew's gospel had originally been composed in Hebrew, not Greek, and so humanists asserted that a proper reexamination of the text must account for the peculiarities of the ancient Jewish language. (At one point, as if to hearten himself about the importance of his Hebrew labors, our unidentified annotator notes that even Erasmus confirms the patristic opinions concerning Matthew's textual origins.) Modern scholars agree: "High Renaissance humanists like Erasmus found it second nature to argue that one must study texts in their original languages, including Hebrew" (A. Grafton, p. 100).Nor was word-for-word copying considered a rote or passive activity at that time. Anthony Grafton stresses the importance of "copying as a tool of scholarship," noting that Isaac Casaubon (d. 1614) copied out the Hebrew book of Esther in emulation of Demosthenes, who was said to have copied the histories of Thucydides eight (!) times. "[Joseph] Scaliger [d. 1606] did the same, starting - as many did - with the medieval Hebrew text of the Gospel of Matthew, part of a commentary on which he copied out in his own hand" (A. Grafton, p. 103). Our anonymous sixteenth-century scholar formed part of this intellectual milieu.The purpose of Münster's project, though, was more than philological. Having worked with Jews and having studied with the scholar-poet Elia Levita (d. 1549), he sought to directly counter contemporary Jewish misunderstanding about Christianity by writing to rabbis in their own literary language and by reworking the misleading Hebrew translation of Matthew then current, a now lost text associated with Spanish scholar Shem-Tov Ibn Shaprut (c. 1380). In his manuscript copy the anonymous annotator of this volume omitted both Münster's direct Hebrew address to contemporary Jews and Münster's Hebrew edition of Matthew, focusing instead on Münster's rich philological notes and keying them to the appropriate passages in Erasmus. *VD16 E 3093; Adams E 887; Anthony Grafton, "The Jewish Book in Christian Europe: Material Texts and Religious Encounters."

        Facetie poggii. Poggii florentini oratoris facundissimi facetiarum aureas libellus . . .

      Venice: Cesare Arrivabene, 1519. Full Calf. Very Good. Scarce, with no copies of this early edition of a Humanist jest book found on OCLC First Search, and very few copies found prior to the date of this edition. 142 by 102 mm. 122 pp. Engraved illustration on title page and engraved initial devices throughout. Printer's device on colophon. "Facetie" means jest book as used here. Thus this is a collection of humorous and off-color tales and anecdotes. Bracciolini (1380-1459) was an early Florentine Humanist who rediscovered a good number of important Classical works buried away in monasteries. He also devised a much used form of script, and he excelled in writing dialogues, a particular genre of writing widely practiced in his day. Of all his own writings, it is "Facetie" that is today the best known. Condition: typical warping of the vellum boards. Light soiling spread evenly over vellum. Some soil along title edge. Generally the interior is clean.

        Pomponius Mela. Julius Solinus. Itinerarium Antonini Aug. Vibius Sequester. P. Victor De regionibus urbi Romae. Dionysius Afer de Situ orbis...

      Florence: the heirs of Filippo Giunta, 1519. Small octavo, italic letter, capital letters neatly rubricated; numerous annotations of differing vintage; an excellent copy in contemporary Italian vellum, flat spine lettered and banded in gilt. Scarce edition of this important collection of classical geographical texts, closely based on the Aldine edition published a year earlier, and including the especially famous works by Pomponius Mela and Julius Solinus. Pomponius Mela's work (see previous item) is the classic early exposition of the argument that the known landmasses in the northern hemisphere must have antipodean counterparts to balance them. Solinus was a legendary Roman geographer whose Polyhistor survived in manuscript until the age of printing, first appearing in print in Venice in 1473. His text, much of it based on Pomponius Mela, also incorporated material from Pliny's Natural History, as well as remarks on a number of historical, social, religious and natural history questions. Other material in this edition includes a translation into Latin of the Periegesis of Dionysius Afer, a 1st-century Greek world geography.

Erste Ausgabe dieser Sammlung von Klage- und Anklageschriften Huttens wegen der Ermordung seines Vetters Hans v. Hutten durch Herzog Ulrich von Württemberg. Besonders die 5 Anklagereden (hier im Erstdruck) und der Dialog 'Phalarismus' (zuerst 1517) sind oratorische Meisterleistungen, in denen der konkrete Rechtsfall publizistisch höchst wirksam hineingestellt wird in den übergreifenden politischen Konflikt zwischen der freien Reichsritterschaft und dem sich herausbildenden Territorialfürstentum. Anlass der Veröffentlichung war der Versuch des bereits geächteten Herzogs, sich mit Waffengewalt wieder in den Besitz seines Landes zu setzen. - Die Sammlung wird nach dem angeblichen Druckort Burg Steckelberg als 'Steckelberger Sammlung' bezeichnet. Diese Angabe diente jedoch nur dazu, den tatsächlichen Drucker Johann Schöffer in Mainz vor Verfolgung zu schützen.
