Einziger Nürnberger Druck, die gleichzeitige Ausgabe bei Ramminger in Augsburg im VD 16 in drei Varianten. - Heinrich von Kettenbach (wohl bereits 1524/25 gestorben) war Franziskaner in Ulm, wo er in der Nachfolge Johann Eberlins seit 1521 reformatorische Predigten hielt und schließlich Mitte 1522 die Stadt verlassen mußte. Hans Volz charakterisiert ihn als "einen der zündendsten Volksschriftsteller aus dem ersten Jahrfünft der deutschen Reformation" (NDB VIII, 412). Im vorliegenden Druck bezieht er sich auch auf die Verhältnisse in Ulm. Der Nürnberger Drucker Stuchs geriet wegen einer (wohl dieser) Kettenbachschrift in Konflikt mit dem Rat der Stadt. (vgl. Benzing 354). - Kaum fleckig, einige Unterstreichungen von alter Hand, zwei Marginalien "Merck", einzeilige Eintragung im unteren weißen Rand des Titels teilweise gelöscht.

Baillie 32.- Panceroli (1523-1599) war Professor für Rechtswisenschaften in Padua.- Seinerzeit beliebtes Kompendium (EA 1599) über Erfindungen, Entdeckungen, Curiosa etc. in der Antike und in der Neuzeit. Beschrieben werden Edelsteine, Alchemie, Destillierkunst, Uhren (darunter Sonnen- und Wasseruhren), Theater, Turniere, Bibliotheken, Musik, Pferde u. a. Im zweiten Teil ein langes Einleitungskapitel über Amerika , wichtig wegen der Bemerkungen über die Verwendung der Bezeichnung Novus orbis - Neue Welt .

Anagnostes (Vorleser) zeigt, dessen wirkliche Existenz hiermit als Beweis angeführt wurde. "This new evidence consisted in a plate found in one of the editions of Panciroli's work mentioned above, representing the interior of a Frankfort printing-office in the year 1660, as indicated by the Roman numerals at the head. M. Madden points out, that in the background are two compositors at work without copy or copyholder (visorium), and explains this by the presence in the right hand top corner of a figure holding a manuscript, which, M. Madden assumes, he is reading aloud to the compositors .." (Bigmore-W. ausführl.- Gest. Titel stellenw. etw. flau im Abdruck sowie mit schwachem Stempel und Eckabriß, erstes Textbl. mit kl.

At the same time an interesting book for the history of printing because of a scene with a printing office, depicted on the engr. title, which was stated as a 'graphic proof' for the existence of a reader in the early days of typography, who dictates to the compositors (cf.

        Peculium Abrae. Grammatica Hebraea una cum Latino nuper edita per Doctiss. Virum Magistrum Abraham de Balmis Artium & Medicinae doctorem.

      Impressa Venetijs In aedibus Danielis Bo[m]bergi [Venise, Daniel Bomberger], 1523.. In-4, plein velin ivoire rigide de l'epoque, piece de titre de veau bordeaux, tranches rouges (quelques petites rep. de velin), [632] p. Edition originale et unique, tres rare, de la premiere grammaire hebreu des temps modernes, donnee dans sa version bilingue latin/hebreu. Tres complete et classee de facon methodique, cette grammaire est la premiere a confronter la science philologique judeo-arabe avec le systeme grammatical du latin et a traiter philosophiquement de la construction de l'hebreu. Elle est egalement la premiere a aborder la syntaxe de facon systematique, comme partie integrante, mais autonome de la grammaire. Son plan (phonetique, morphologie, syntaxe), qui se substitue au plan classique (nom, verbe, particule), est le premier du genre dans une grammaire hebraique. L'essai traite, par ailleurs, de sujets inexplores avant lui: combinaison des noms avec les verbes, des noms avec les noms, accord du nom et du verbe, etc. Il est ainsi cite comme l'un des essais philologiques le plus important de son temps. Abraham ben Meir de Balmes (Lecce c. 1440 - Venise, 1523), obtint un doctorat de medecine et de philosophie a l'Universite de Naples. Lorsque la communaute juive fut expulsee de cette ville, il se refugia a Venise, devint medecin du Cardinal Grimani et se consacra a la traduction d'oeuvres philosophiques et scientifiques arabes et hebraisantes. Son enseignement et ses travaux obtinrent un tres grand rayonnement tant a l'interieur qu'en dehors des cercles juifs. Homme de la Renaissance, de Balmes est considere comme l'un des principaux passeurs de la culture et de l'heritage judeo-arabe dans le monde chretien de son temps. Cf. David Tene, 'A. de Balmes and his Grammar of Biblical Hebrew', in History of Linguistics, 1996. (Adams, A.42. Heller, 'The 16th c. Hebrew Books', p.164-165. Vinograd, 'Venice', n°81).

        Itinerario de Ludovico de Verthema Bolognese ne lo Egypto ne la Suria ne la Arabia Deserta & Felice ne la Persia ne la India, & ne la Ethiopia. La fede el vivere & costumi de tutte le prefate provincie.

      Milan, Giovanni Angelo Scinzenzeler, (30 April 1523).. Octavo (185 x 130 mm). XLII ff. (A-E8, F2). Large woodcut on title with decorative woodcut border, putti above and below (Sander 7494 and pl. 93). Roman letter, numerous floriated white on black woodcut initials. Modern calf bound to style: covers with concentric frames in blind fillets, gilt fleurons at outer corners, central lozenge in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt.. Second original Italian edition, second issue of Ludovico di Varthema's famous travels to Arabia, Persia, and India: the highly important and adventurous narrative containing the first recorded visit of a Westerner to Mecca. His description of the Hijaz is especially valuable as it pre-dates the Ottoman occupation of 1520. All early editions of Varthema's "Itinerario" are exceedingly rare (even the 2013 Hajj exhibition at the MIA, Doha, only featured the 1654 reprint; cf. below). - Varthema, a gentleman adventurer and soldier from Bologna, left Venice at the end of 1502. In 1503 he reached Alexandria and ascended the Nile to Cairo, continuing to Beirut, Tripoli, Aleppo and Damascus, where, adopting Islam and taking the name of Yunas, he joined a Mameluke escort of a Hajj caravan and began the pilgrimage to Mecca. Varthema was amazed by what he observed: "Truly I never saw so many people collected in one spot as during the twenty days I remained there", he begins, and arriving at the Great Mosque, continues, "it would not be possible to describe the sweetness and the fragrances which are smelt within this temple." Thanks to his knowledge of Arabic and Islam, Varthema was able to appreciate the local culture of the places he visited. Impressed and fascinated, he describes not only rites and rituals, but also social, geographical, and day-to-day details. "I determined, personally, and with my own eyes", he declares in the prefatory dedication, "to ascertain the situation of places, the qualities of peoples [...] of Egypt, Syria, Arabia Deserta and Felix, Persia, India, and Ethiopia, remembering well that the testimony of one eye-witness is worth more than ten hear-says." His good fortune did not continue unabated, however: after embarking at Jidda and sailing to Aden, he was denounced as a Christian spy and imprisoned. He secured his release and proceeded on an extensive tour of southwest Arabia. Stopping in Sanaa and Zebid as well as a number of smaller cities, he describes the people, the markets and trade, the kind of fruits and animals that are plentiful in the vicinity, and any historical or cultural information he deems noteworthy. Returning to Aden, and after a brief stop in Ethiopia, he set sail for India. In addition to visiting Persia, Varthema explored the coasts of Malabar and Coromandel, including a very documented stay at Calicut at the beginning of 1505. He also purports to have made extensive travels around the Malay peninsula and the Moluccas. Returning to Calicut in August 1505, he took employement with the Portuguese at Cochin and, in 1508, made his way back to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope. - First published in 1510, Varthema's account became an immediate bestseller. In addition to his fascinating account of Egypt, Syria, the Arabian Peninsula, and the holy Muslim cities, "Varthema brought into European literature an appreciation of the areas east of India [...] which it had previously not received from the sea-travelers and which confirmed by firsthand observations many of the statements made earlier by Marco Polo and the writers of antiquity" (Lach, I. i. 166). "Varthema was a real traveller. His reports on the social and political conditions of the various lands he visited are reliable as being gathered from personal contact with places and peoples. His account of the overland trade is of great value in that we are made to see it before it had begun to give way to the all-seas route. He even heard of a southern continent and of a region of intense cold and very short days, being the first European probably after Marco Polo to bring back the rumor of Terra Australis" (Cox I, 260). - The fine title woodcut shows Varthema seated on a bench in front of a building, writing on a globe, behind him a set of dividers; in the background a landscape with a ship at sea and a castle. 18th-century collection shelfmark to title page. A very clean, appealingly-bound copy; a few minor traces of worming have been professionally repaired. Rare; only four copies in international auction records. OCLC lists five copies only (Yale, Trinity College Hartford, NYPL, BL, BnF). - Cf. exhibition cat. "Hajj - The Journey Through Art" (Doha, 2013), p. 91 (the 1654 ed. only). BM-STC 73. Blackmer 1719.

Einzige Ausgabe, erster von zwei Drucken mit minimalen typographischen Abweichungen. - Seltene reformatorische Schrift. Gerung war Prediger am Elisabethenkloster in Memmingen und ist dem Umfeld des Memminger Reformators Christoph Schappeler zuzurechnen, seine "Biographie ist wenig erhellt; ob Gerung in den Jahren 1524/25 noch in der Stadt weilte ist unsicher" (Blickle). In der vorliegenden Flugschrift tritt Gerung für ein neues Sakramentsverständnis ein: "Das Priestertum aller Gläubigen macht es überflüssig, daß die Laien den Priestern beichten, vielmehr ist der Beichte ihr eigentlicher Sinn zurückzugeben: durch die Sünde werden Menschen und Gott gekränkt, folglich hat der Sünder vor beiden seine Verfehlungen zu bekennen [...] Gerungs Beichtverständnis lebt auch aus der Hoffnung, daß sich so die alltäglichen Beziehungen zwischen den Menschen verchristlichen ließen. Kirchenkritik gewinnt hier einen starken gesellschaftsbessernden Zug" (Peter Blickle, Memmingen - ein Zentrum der Reformation, in: Geschichte der Stadt Memmingen I, S. 383). - Mit schöner ornamentaler Titelbordüre von Hans Weiditz. - Vereinzelt minimal stockfleckig.

        Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalità

      Title & A1r printed in red & black within ornamental strapwork woodcut borders, woodcut initials, & numerous woodcut diagrams in the margins including depictions of barrels, sacks, & weighing instruments. 8 p.l., 224 leaves; 76 leaves. Two parts in one vol. Small folio (313 x 220 mm.), early 19th-century vellum-backed marbled boards (occasional minor dampstaining or browning). Toscolano: Paganino de' Paganini, 20 December 1523. Second edition, the reprint of the extremely rare first edition of 1494, "the earliest printed book to treat algebra comprehensively. An important volume in that it contains the theories of Leonardo Fibonacci of Pisa (ca. 1170-1250), whose works transmitted Hindu-Arabic numerals and theories to the West and thus marked the beginning of the mathematical renaissance. It discusses double-entry bookkeeping and presents methods of accountancy that have stood the test of centuries. In includes part of the text of the Libro che tratta di mercanzie of Chiarini, first printed at Florence in 1481; and the influential theories of perspective advanced by Pacioli's former teacher, Piero della Francesca (ca.1416-1492)."-Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing, 203-(describing the 1st ed.). This is a most handsomely illustrated book. The first leaf of text has a large woodcut initial "L" depicting Pacioli standing with a book before him and a pair of compasses in his hand. On leaf E4v there is a full-page chart of hands showing the position of the fingers to signify numbers. This block is from the 1494 edition. The famous full-page woodcut "tree of proportion," printed in red and black on leaf L2r, is taken from Pacioli's Divina Proportione. The woodcuts in the margins depict mathematical and geometrical figures and measuring and weighing instruments. A very good and extremely large copy of this book with many outer and lower edges uncut. Most copies of this book have been cut down by the binder's knife so that the two fine full-page woodcut borders are trimmed or cropped. In our copy, there are ample margins around all four sides of both and none of the marginal woodcuts are touched. Early signature on title: "Ad usum Alexandri a Purificatione Scholarum Piarum." With some marginal annotations in two early hands. ❧ Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 58. Tomash P2. .

      [Antwerp: Philips Galle,, late 16th century]. Pair of engravings by Hans Collaert after Van der Straet. Uncoloured. Fine condition. In gold leaf frames.

The Flemish artist Jan van der Straet (1523-1605; otherwise known as Stradanus, or Giovanni Stradano) was born at Bruges and trained there and at Antwerp. He established himself in Florence about 1550. There he was employed as a designer of tapestries for the "Fabbrica degli Arazzi" which Cosimo de Medici had founded. Between 1550 and 1553 he executed works for the Vatican with the help of Francesco Salviati, who became a great influence on his style. He worked in Florence with Giorgio Vasari designing tapestries and frescoes depicting hunting scenes for Cosimo's villa at Poggio a Caiana near Florence.

        Isagogae Breves p[er]lucide ac uberrime in Anatomiam humani corporis a commun i[n] Medicorum Academia usitata

      Title within architectural woodcut border incorporating a dissection scene, 23 full-page anatomical woodcuts within typographical borders, & woodcut printer&#39;s device on recto of last leaf. 80 leaves. Small 4to, 18th-cent. marbled & speckled sheep (small restoration to fore-edge of f. 6 with loss of 8 words of marginal note on verso neatly supplied in facsimile, minor dampstain in lower margin of some leaves), spine gilt. [Bologna: B. Hectoris, 1523]. Second edition of Berengario&#39;s Isagoge, containing the loveliest and most important pre-Vesalian anatomical illustrations. Our edition contains three more anatomical woodcuts as well as some revisions to the illustrations; these alterations and additions emphasized the anatomy of the heart and brain, and include the first published view of the cerebral ventricles from an actual dissection. In 1521 Berengario published a commentary on the then obsolete anatomical compendium of Mondino. He added illustrations, which were the first anatomical illustrations taken from nature and the best and most important pre-Vesalian illustrations. He thus inaugurated a new epoch in anatomy, correcting numerous errors and pioneering independent research into the anatomy of separate parts of the body. In the following year he replaced his Commentaria, now seen as the most important forerunner of Vesalius, with his Isagogae, a digest written to accompany an actual dissection. It has the same arrangement as the Commentaria, uses many of the same woodcuts, and has additional anatomical observations including a description of the valves of the heart. This edition also re-uses the title-page border from the Commentaria, with some small alterations. "Berengario was the first anatomist to publish illustrated treatises on anatomy based on his own dissections. His Commentaria on the fourteenth-century Anatomia of Mondino was the first work since the time of Galen to display any considerable amount of original anatomical information based upon personal investigation and observation. The woodcut illustrations of muscle men posed before a landscape background in this work, while crude and lacking in detail in comparison to those in Vesalius&#39;s Fabrica, represent the model on which Vesalius based his series of larger and more scientifically portrayed muscle men. The title page of Berengario&#39;s work, with its small illustration of a dissection scene in the lower margin, many have suggested to Vesalius the idea for the dramatic and famous frontispiece to the Fabrica. Vesalius also borrowed from Berengario the concept of having particular anatomical figures perform specific actions, and repeated Berengario&#39;s trick of showing a skeleton holding a skull in each hand as a means of illustrating three separate views of the skull in one woodcut. Berengario was a connoisseur of the arts and it is probable that he knew of Leonardo da Vinci&#39;s anatomical drawings, as some of Leonardo&#39;s artistic techniques can be observed in the Commentaria&#39;s woodcuts."-Norman, Catalogue, p. 67, note to the Commentaria, of which the Isagogae is a textually condensed version. This is a particularly nice copy with good margins. The work is often marred by being closely trimmed with the woodcut borders cropped. &#10087; See Garrison-Morton 368 for the first edition; "this is the work by which Berengario is best known." Choulant & Frank, pp. 136-42. Herrlinger, History of Medical Illustration, pp. 80-83. Roberts & Tomlinson, The Fabric of the Body. European Traditions of Anatomical Illustration, pp. 70-83-"his description of anatomical structures was based not only on the classical authorities, but also on direct observation. He familiarity with anatomy came, he says from the dissection of hundred of cadavers. His close and critical reading Latin and Greek of classical, Arabic, and western medieval sources put him in touch with humanistic scholarship, with medieval and Arabic anatomy, and with scientific independent inquiry based on actual observations." .

        En tibi lector studiose strabonis geographicorum commentarios, olim a guarino veronese, and gregorio trifernate latinitate donatos, iam uero denuo a conrado heresbachio ad fidem graeci exemplaris auctorumque, qui huc facere uidebantur, nos aestimandis. basileae, in aedibus valentini curionis, '1523.

      In-folio (330x210mm), pp. (36) 566 (2). Solida legatura settecentesca in piena pelle maculata con dorso a 6 nervi. Bellissimo frontespizio figurato in xilografia (il titolo a stampa è incorniciato da ricchissime figurazioni allegoriche e dalle immagini dei poeti, dei filosofi e degli scienziati dell'antica Grecia) di Jacob Faber ed Hans Holbein il Giovane; il secondo f. e la pag. 1 sono decorati da due ricche bordure architettoniche intarsiate da composizioni vegetali e animate da volti e figure umane opera degli stessi artisti; grandi capilettera figurati con scene di giochi, putti, fregi con colonne, figure grottesche e animali fantastici e decorazioni xilografiche nel testo. Ampi indici. Carattere romano. Al verso dell'ultima carta, impresa tipografica in xilografia con figure allegoriche. Qualche difetto superficiale alla legatura e qualche alone chiaro, perlopiù al margine basso di alcune sezioni di carte (più marcato alle carte finali). Celebre ed affascinante cinquecentina di Basilea del ""De Situ Orbis"", la più antica opera geografica dell'antichità pervenutaci completa, che in 17 libri descrive il mondo conosciuto anticamente; la presente è anche la prima edizione in lingua latina (la traduzione è dovuta a Guarino Veronese e a Gregorius Tiphernas, mentre la cura dell'edizione è di C. Heresbach). Nei primi due libri l'autore introduce l'argomento tracciando una storia della geografia da Omero fino ai suoi tempi, poi discute la sua metodologia in polemica con geografi ""matematici"" come Eratostene ed Ipparco, dichiarando di adottare il metodo della geografia ""fisica"" (quella che oggi chiamiamo geopolitica), facendo della geografia una disciplina ""filosofica"", mirante a dare una descrizione dell'uomo e dello spazio in cui vive. A quest'introduzione generale segue la descrizione dell'Ecumene, il mondo conosciuto, in senso orario, seguendo la carta del mondo disegnata da Eratostene: Strabone parte da Spagna, Gallia e Britannia (libri III-IV), a cui segue una dettagliata descrizione dell'Italia (V-VI), di Europa del Nord, Illiria, Epiro (VII, mutilo), passa poi a Grecia ed isole ioniche ed egee (VIII-X). Infine Strabone si rivolge all'Asia: partendo dal Danubio e dalla regione armena (XI), descrive l'Asia minore (XII), per poi passare a Troade, Cipro e Cilicia (XIII-XIV), India e Golfo Persico (XV), zona arabo-mesopotamica (XVI), chiudendo la trattazione con Africa del Nord, Egitto, Libia, Mauritania (XVII). Strabone ci dà notizie basate su duplice provenienza: quella della sua personale esperienza di viaggiatore o delle notizie apprese da altri, l'altra è quella delle fonti scritte, letterarie e geografiche. Infatti spesso le descrizioni non sono attuali, ma riguardano realtà precedenti anche di due secoli. Il suo uso delle fonti è però contraddistinto da elevato senso critico ed intelligenza, non è mera compilazione, ma comparazione delle ipotesi e delle notizie discordanti eseguita con grande acume.
