ANDROUET DU CERCEAU, Jacques.
BAL 95; Berlin Kat. 4699; Fowler 26; Vagnetti EIIb29. First edition of a beautifully illustrated manual on perspective for use of painters, sculptors and architects by Jacques Androuet Du Cerveau (ca. 1520-1584), one of the most fertile architects of the second half of the 16th century. He started the Pont-Neuf at Paris by order of Henri III, but the civil war prevented its completion. By order of Henri IV he worked at the gallery of the Louvre, but being a Protestant, Androuet had to flee Paris. The present work teaches the art of perspective in 60 lessons, offering gradually increasingly difficult problems as aids to the artist in constructing perspective views. The lessons are clearly illustrated with one plate for each lesson. The plates have great charm, thanks to both the arrangement of the illustrations and by the clear and strong designs. Most were etched by Androuet du Cerceau himself, and show perspective views and projections first of geometric figures and solids, then of increasingly elaborate buildings, architectural details and landscapes.With small tears repaired in three plates, only 1 affecting the pictorial image, and a small rust hole in another, but still in good condition. Kept in half morocco velvet-lined box. Recased, with the parchment somewhat stained.

Abulcasis (Albucasis, Abu al-Qasim al-Zahrawi) / Argellata, Pietro.
(Venice, Giunta, 1 March 1520). - Folio (225 x 315 mm). 159 (misnumbered: 155), (1) pp., final blank. With numerous initials and woodcuts in the text; colophon and printer's device printed in red. 19th-century half calf with giltstamped green spine label. Early, very rare edition of the surgical section of Albucasis's "Al-Tasrif", the "first rational, complete and illustrated treatise on surgery and surgical instruments. During the Middle Ages it was the leading textbook on surgery until superseded by Saliceto" (Garrison/M.). Includes nearly 200 woodcut illustrations of surgical instruments, including a forceps for extracting a dead fetus - a device of his own invention, still in use in modified form. - Abu al-Qasim, hailed as the "father of modern surgery", specialized in curing disease by cauterization. He designed several devices used during surgery, for purposes such as inspection of the interior of the urethra, applying and removing foreign bodies from the throat, inspection of the ear, etc. In his "Al-Tasrif" he described how to ligature blood vessels almost 600 years before Ambroise Paré. Al-Qasim was also the first to describe a surgical procedure for ligating the temporal artery for migraine, also almost 600 years before Pare recorded that he had ligated his own temporal artery for headache that conforms to current descriptions of migraine. His use of catgut for internal stitching is still practised in modern surgery (catgut apparently being the only natural substance capable of being absorbed by the body). - Occasional browning and waterstaining; insignificant wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Luther, Martin
Leipzig: Melchior Lotter, 1520. Very Good. Quarto. [35] ff. (lacking final blank; minor dampstaining at outer margins). Modern speckled boards, preserved in custom fitted protective box). Extremely early German edition of Martin Luther's Tessaradecas consolatoria ("The Fourteen Spiritual Consolations"), written in 1519, first printed in 1520, here translated by Luther's friend Georg Spalatin (pseudonym of Georg Burkhardt, 1484-1545). The elaborate woodcut border was executed by H. Vogtherr the Elder. AN IMPORTANT GERMAN REFORMATION PAMPHLET. When Luther's Elector, Frederick the Wise (1485-1525), returned to his residence at Torgau, after participating in the election of Emperor Charles V, at Frankfurt am Main, in the summer of 1519, he was stricken with a serious illness, from which there seemed little hope of his recovery. Concerned for his noble patron, and urged by Georg Burkhardt (a.k.a. Georg Spalatin), his friend at court, to prepare a "spiritual consolation" for the Elector, Luther wrote "The Fourteen Spiritual Consolations," one of his finest devotional writings; in conception and execution it remains one of the most original of all his works. Its composition falls within the months of August and September of the year 1519. On August 29th, the Day of the Beheading of St. John Baptist, we find Luther writing in Part I, chapter vi: "Does not the example of St. John Baptist, whom we commemorate on this day as beheaded by Herod, shame and amaze us all?" On September 22d, he sends the completed manuscript (in Latin) to Spalatin, requesting him to make a free translatio … [Click Below for Full Description]

TEXTOR [WINSHEMIUS], Jodocus (d. 1520)
Basel: 1520. 4to (207 x 152 mm). 62 pp., 1 leaf. Title within four-part woodcut border with putti and grotesques, two large white-on-black woodcut initials, printer?'s woodcut device on final colophon leaf. A large copy in fine condition. Wrappers from an early manuscript leaf on vellum, possibly from a pontifical or breviary, containing neumes and part of an initial with blue and red penwork decoration. *** Second edition (first Erfurt 1518) of a popular and now rare reformist treatise on confession, considering the sacrament through the perspective of the Ten Commandments. A native of Windsheim, west of Nuernberg, known under at least 15 variant names (cf. the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek authority list) including Jodocus or Judocus Textor or Textoris (Latinization of Eckart), or Jodocus Winshemius or Windshemius, or Jodocus Textoris de Winsheim, the author received his BA and MA from the University of Erfurt, where he later taught on the faculty of arts. From 1517 until his death three years later he preached at the cathedral chapter of Haug, at that time outside the Würzburg city gates. While advocating religious reform, Textor?'s outlook was closer to the conservative views of Wimpfeling and Johann Geiler von Kaisersberg, who ?"conceded to the classical authors no more than a limited role in their educational and cultural program?" (Cont. of Erasmus 2:448), than to the humanist ideals of his contemporary at Erfurt, Eobanus Hessus, who nevertheless supplied the five-line poem that is printed on the title-page of the present work.

Schlichter späterer Interims-Umschlag. .. Zweite Ausgabe. Italiens Reaktion auf die Thesen Martin Luthers*** Zweite Ausgabe der nur zweimal gedruckten, überaus seltenen Schrift des Dominikanerpaters Tommaso Radini Tedeschi da Piacenza (1488-1527), der sich hier mit den Thesen und reformatorischen Ansätzen Martin Luthers auseinandersetzt, "nunc vero secundo Lipsiae apud Melchiorem Lottherum seniorem est excusa. Anno M.D.XX. Mense Octobris" (Kolophon). Die erste Ausgabe war im katholischen Köln im selben Jahre 1520 erschienen (VD16 R 84).Tommaso Radini Tedesci stammt aus Piacenza, trat in den Konvent von S. Eustorgio in Mailand ein und erlangte Berühmtheit ebenso als Theologe wie als Dichter mit seinem Hauptwerk der "Calipsichia". "Tommaso Radino, dell'ordine de' predicatori, buono teologo, ma miglior oratore e poeta, che fece la Calipsichia' col 'Siderale Abisso'. Manco in Roma nel tempo dell'infelice captura di essa dall'essercito di Carlo V imperatore nel 1527". In seiner vorliegenden Schrift wird Luther vorgeworfen, mit seiner Neuerungsbewegung als Ketzer den Ruf der deutschen Fürsten wie der deutschen Völker verunglimpft zu haben ("Nationis gloriam violantem oratio"). Das Werk ist insofern von Bedeutung, da es nicht in erster Linie die Meinung der Päpste selbst, sondern eines humanistisch gebildeten Italieners wiedergibt - und damit zu einer höchst interessanten Schilderung Deutschlands aus der südlichen Sich … [Click Below for Full Description]
