TELESIO, Antonio. 1482-1534
Rome: Francesco Minizio Calvo, 1524. PRINTED ON VELLUM. Roman type, occasional shoulder notes. CONTEMPORARY ROMAN BINDING OF BLIND- AND GILT-TOOLED BROWN MOROCCO over soft paper boards (rubbed, corners slightly defective), quadruple-rule outer and inner blind frames, gilt straight and curved rules between the frames, larger gilt branches in the outer corners, smaller ones in the inner corners and flames in the middle, a gilt daisy above and below the gilt circular central medallion decorated with ropework and four impressions of the larger branch tool, blind decorated spine (crown and base slightly damaged), vellum pastedowns and their conjugate free endleaf stubs (see below), evidence of eight green fabric ties, all edges gilt. First Edition of the color theorist, classical scholar and playwright's first book of verse. From teaching Greek and Latin in Milan, Telesio was called to Rome in late 1523. Within a month of his arrival, he published praise of the newly elected Pope Clement VII, quickly joined the humanist circles of Giovio, Trissino and Vida, befriended Gian Pietro Carafa (the future Pope Paul IV) and found a patron in Gian Matteo Giberti, this book's dedicatee.  The present collection includes two pieces, "Cyclops" and "Galatea", that first sound themes central to Telesio's 1527 tragedy, Imber aureus. In other poems, a sailor laments the travails and dangers of the sea, and the author plays with with nomen omen in describing the gift from a Milanese nobleman named Lampius of an elaborately sculpted bronze lamp. Telesio likely composed verses on the dest … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUVERGNE, William of
Venezia: Bernardino I Stagnino, 1524. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. William of Auvergne was a 13th-century French philosopher and Bishop of Paris. He wrote several philosophical and theological works, many of which discussed the art of preaching, avoiding vices, doctrine, treatises on the mass and sacraments, theological wisdom, and commentary on Old Testament Bible books. This extremely rare and highly unique book carries with it several curiosities. The given engraved title page is for another work all together and the publishing and dating information printed in the colophon does not exist in any library database or reference work. This work is of the utmost rarity, unrecorded 16th-century book - not in USTC, Adams, or the worldcat library database!

PICO DELLA MIRANDOLA GIOVANFRANCESCO.
Bologna, Geronimo de Beneditti, 1524. Del mese de Aprile. In-4°; 55, 1 c. (errata). Titolo inscritto in una elegante cornice xilografica figurata considerata una delle più significate decorazioni a stampa del rinascimento italiano. Marca tipografica in fine. Legatura in tutta pergamena morbida: titolo originale manoscritto al dorso (minimo restauro alla cuffia superiore, piatti in tutta pergamena dell'epoca riadattata). Buon esemplare, ordinate note cinquecentesche ai margini bianchi di alcune carte. Primo trattato di demonologia pubblicato in lingua volgare, scritto da Giovanfrancesco Pico della Mirandola (Mirandola 1469-1533) nipote del grande filosofo Giovanni, e ispirato alle tematiche del "Malleus maleficarum". Questa prima traduzione italiana del "Strix sive de ludificatione daemonum", uscito l'anno precedente, fu curata dal domenicano e storico bolognese Leandro Alberti. Nel 1522 il frate domenicano Girolamo Armellini aveva aperto un processo contro una sessantina di persone per atti di stregoneria avvenuti, secondo il racconto dell'Alberti, in abominevoli sabba tenuti nella villa di Cividale, nella Signoria della Mirandola. Il 22 agosto 1522 venne messo al rogo il primo accusato, don Benedetto Berni, e la stessa sorte toccò l'anno successivo anche ad altre 6 persone. La dura reazione dell'opinione pubblica della signoria di Mirandola per queste condanne a morte, portò nel maggio 1523 Giovanni Francesco Pico a scrivere il dialogo "Strix, sive de ludificatione daemonum" per giustificare l'uccisione degli accusati. La Posizione del Pico, affidata al dialogo tra quattro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boethius as a Roman senator, consul, magister officiorum and philosopher of the early 6th century. He was born about a year after Odoacer deposed the last Western Roman Emperor and declared himself King of Italy. Boethius entered public service under the Ostrogothic king, Theodoric the Great, who later imprisoned and executed him in 524 on charges of conspiracy to overthrow him. While jailed, Boethius composed his Consolation of Philosophy, a philosophical treatise on fortune, death, and other issues, which became one of the most popular and influential works of the Middle Ages. As the author of numerous handbooks and as a translator of Aristotle, Boethius became the main intermediary between Classical antiquity and following centuries.First printed in Milan (c.1500). Boethius is considered "the fundamental philosophical and theological author in the Latin tradition" and "one of the rare philosophers whose thought, like Plato's, cannot be neatly separated from the complex literary form in which it is … [Click Below for Full Description]

APIANUS, PETRUS
Landshut, Johann Weissenburger für Petrus Apianus, 1524. Numerous woodcuts and 4 volvelles. (8), 104, (8, last blank) ff. Small 4to (195 x 152mm), contemporary limp vellum, The Very Scarce First Edition of one of the most important geographical and astronomical texts of the Renaissance, and one of the most significant and influential of the 16th century instrument books for navigators and travellers. Title-page with large woodcut illustration of a globe, woodcut coat-of-arms of Archbishop Matthäus Lang of Salzburg on title-page verso and last leaf of the foreword with a large woodcut depicting a sphere are printed in red and black. Borba de Moraes calls for 4 mobile diagrams (volvelles) on page 17, 24, 63 and on the first leaf of the appendix. This copy has these four mobile diagrams. The most important illustration with mobile parts is on page 63: it shows the world seen from the North Pole with quite a large piece of America. Petrus Apianus (1495-1552) was born in Saxony as Peter Bienewitz. He studied at the University of Leipzig from 1516 to 1519, where he took a Latinised version of his German name: Petrus Apianus. In 1520 he moved to Vienna, where he was part of the second Vienna school of cartography and produced his first world map there. He then moved again to Landshut, where he produced the ‘Cosmographicus liber’ in 1524, his first major work. The system for cartographic projection which Apianus used attained enormous success and was popularized by Münster and Ortelius. It was Petrus Apianus who designed the first map printed in a book to contain the name America ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

Quelques salissures.) ?Edition in-8° du Nouveau Testament en grec. Elle suit la toute première qu'Erasme fit imprimer en 1516. C'est l'un des premiers livres en grec issu des presses de l'imprimeur humaniste Wolfgang Köpfel (actif de 1522 à 1554), neveu du réformateur protestant du même nom, mieux connu sous sa forme latinisée de Wolfgang Capiton. C'est sans doute l?influence de cet oncle qui amena Köpfel à assurer dès 1522 la diffusion des écrits des réformateurs : Luther et Martin Bucer, qui donne sa spécificité à la Réforme strasbourgeoise, représente la moitié de sa production imprimée. Mais Köpfel imprime aussi des ouvrages en latin et en grec. En 1524, il publie un psautier grec et ce Nouveau Testament. Dans la préface, l'éditeur informe le lecteur qu'il a installé, près du Marché aux chevaux, un nouvel atelier où il se propose d'imprimer principalement des ouvrages en langue étrangère, ajoutant que si le public fait bon accueil à ce Nouveau Testament, il imprimera aussi l?Ancien Testament, avec les mêmes caractères.

Titolo un po' sporco, minime fioriture, ma ottima copia genuina.EDIZIONE IN PARTE ORIGINALE. «Nel 1546 aveva il Parabosco pubblicata la Prima parte delle rime in Venezia, presso Tommaso Botietta in 8vo, dirigendola ad Eleonora de' Medici duchessa di Firenze. In questa nuova pubblicazione del 1547 l'autore riprodusse una parte delle medesime composizioni, insieme con altre inedite e, considerandola come libro nuovo, la dedicò ad Anna da Este principessa di Ferrara, in lode della quale sono i primi sonetti che vi si leggono. Ma il Parabosco, come altri contemporanei, fu solito valersi delle cose proprie in più modi, e farne cucina con più salse. Le ottave in lode di Venezia, che sono stampate in questo libretto (p. 19), furono da lui ristampate l'anno 1548 nel Tempio della Fama; e così ne trasse trentadue ballate o madrigali (salvo errore nel contarli), per aggiungerli con altri nel Primo libro de' madrigali stampato nel 1551; e forse si trovano nei suoi rarissimi e quasi ignoti libri di Madrigali colla musica. La Seconda parte delle rime, dove stanno otto capitoli burleschi, uscì poi in luce nel 1555 a Venezia, presso Francesco e Pietro Rocca fratelli; ed in questa sono ripetuti tre sonetti della edizione giolitina» (S. Bongi, Annali di Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, Roma, 1890, I, p. 147).Le Rime d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homer
Venice: Aldine Press, 1524. Rare third Aldine edition of Homer's The Odyssey. Small octavo, original vellum with the title to the spine in manuscript, with woodcut Aldine device to title and final colophon leaf. In excellent condition with some minor toning to the leaves. Exceptionally rare, with only two having appeared at auction in the last 80 years. This is one of the earliest obtainable examples of Homer's landmark work. One of the two major ancient Greek poems attributed to Homer, The Odyssey is the second-oldest extant work of Western literature, while the Iliad is the oldest. The work was likely composed near the end of the 8th century B.C.E. in the Greek coastal region of Anatolia in an oral tradition which was more likely intended to be performed that read. The story details the epic ten-year journey of the Greek hero, Odysseus, King of Ithaca, who has been assumed dead after the fall of Troy.

Machiavelli, Niccolo. Illustrated by Claude Durrens
Soixante-Dix_Sept Bibliophiles, 1524. Soixante-Dix-Sept signed limited edition of Machiavelli's classic comedy, The Mandrake. Folio, loose leaves as issued, illustrated with 12 original lithographs by Claude Durrens, additional suite of lithographs in rear. One of only 77 copies signed by the artist on the colophon. In very good condition. housed in the original one quarter morocco and chemise slip case. Although The Mandrake was first published in 1524 and first performed in the carnival season of 1526, Machiavelli likely wrote the five-act comedy in 1518 as a distraction from his bitterness at having been excluded from the diplomatic and political life of Florence following the 1512 reversion to Medici rule. Both contemporary and modern scholars read the play as an overt critique of the House of Medici; however, Machiavelli set the action in 1504 during the period of the Florentine Republic in order to express his frustrations without fear of censure from patrons already ill-disposed towards him and his writing.

[Cortés, Hernando]
[N.p., 1524. Handcolored engraving, 16 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches. A bit toned at edges, dampstain to lower third. Very good. Framed. An expert facsimile of Hernando Cortés's extremely-rare map of Tenochtitlan and the Gulf of Mexico, commonly referred to as "Mexico City and the Gulf of Mexico." The map was originally engraved in Nuremberg and published with the 1524 first Latin edition of Cortés' second letter describing his adventures in the New World, titled PRAECLARA FERDINADI CORTESII DE NOVA MARIS OCEANI HYSPANIA NARRATIO.... This map is generally considered the earliest plan of any city in America, and was reportedly drawn from memory by Cortés in 1521. Owing to its importance, it has been reproduced many times over the centuries. This map was the first view Europeans had of a city that had, by that time, been leveled by Cortés. Scholars believe the map was based on an unknown map made by indigenous people in Tenochtitlan, since many of the elements of the map are a native construct. For example, the central plaza is large relative to the city, emphasizing its importance, but there are only the twin temples (Templo Mayor with temples dedicated to Huitzilopochtli and Tlaloc, the gods of war and rain, respectively), two skull racks (tzompantli) and a couple other structures. Yet, the Spaniards mention in their letters and other writings that the city center was bustling with activity. Later archaeological work has indicated that there were over seventy buildings in the plaza. This map reflects the importance of Templo Mayor in the mind of a native person rather tha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scholars believe the map was based on an unknown map made by indigenous people in Tenochtitlan, since many of the elements of the map are a native construct. For example, the central plaza is large relative to the city, emphasizing its importance, but there are only the twin temples (Templo Mayor with temples dedicated to Huitzilopochtli and Tlaloc, the gods of war and rain, respectively), two skull racks (tzompantli) and a couple other structures. Yet, the Spaniards mention in their letters and other writings that the city center was bustling with activity. Later archaeological work has indicated that there were over seventy buildings in the plaza. This map reflects the importance of Templo Mayor in the mind of a native person rather than a European exp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Strasbourg: Wolfgang Kopfel, 1524. Lovely Binding: Loss of title page: Marginalia: some Provenance. Very early Greek new Testament, the earliest published in Octavo (measures 6"x4"x1 5/8" or, according to sources, "foolscap octavo"): Published by Wolfgang Kopfel in Strasbourg with the assistance of is uncle, Wolfgang Capito. The text is the Erasmus translation from Latin to Greek, originally published in 1516 and considered quite controversial at the time. This is a very pretty copy with a very nice tooled design in gilt on front and rear and a heavily decorated spine. In very good condition, aside from the front board being off, this has some provenance attached with the name of ? Garnett/Magd.Hall/Oxford at the top of the first spare. Magdelen Hall was a residence hall at Oxford for boarding pupils of the grammar school. Below this is the name of "Geo. W.S. Friedrichsen/Washington DC c 1954". Friedrichsen was an editor for the "Shorter Oxford English Dictionary" among other accomplishments. There is also a much faded name written on the woodcut at the end as well as some interesting notations. There is some marginalia within. A very nice edition of an important early Testament.

VÉGÈCE.
Johannes Soter, 1524. In-12 (139 x 92 mm), 8 ff. n. ch., 67 ff. mal chiffrés 74, 1 f. n. ch. Maroquin olive, triple filet d'encadrement, dos lisse orné, tranches dorées, marge courte touchant parfois aux annotations (reliure du XVIIIe siècle). Le plus important traité militaire de l'Antiquité. L'ouvrage de Végèce sur l'art militaire, écrit à la fin du IVe siècle, est une compilation de textes antiques. Il est, depuis le Moyen-âge, la source officielle de ceux qui veulent écrire sur la guerre. On y traite de tous les aspects de la guerre et de sa préparation: recrutement et sélection des recrues, organisation militaire, discipline, logistique, hygiène aux armées, tactique, moral, logistique, génie, artillerie, guerre navale. Les sources du traité de Végèce sont romaines, car il les déclare supérieures aux grecques que le sort des armes a sanctionnées. Celse, Frontin, Caton, les constitutions militaires d'Auguste, Trajan et Hadrien sont évoqués par l'auteur, en plus de divers historiens comme Salluste. L'importance de ce texte fait de Végèce le premier auteur militaire ancien à être imprimé; c'est aussi le plus publié aux XVe et XVIe siècles. À la fin du XIVe et au début du XVe siècle, la plupart des éditions de ce traité sont couplées à d'autres textes anciens d'art militaire: ceux de Frontin, Élien et Modestus (cet auteur n'a en réalité jamais existé et le texte n'est qu'une reprise de Végèce ; la supercherie date de la fin du XVe siècle). Ce corpus est souvent désigné sous l'appellation de Veteres scriptores de re militari. Cette édition en latin fut la première allemande … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lucianus of Samosata.
1524. Basel: Valentin Curio, 1 September 1524.4to, [76]pp. Greek and Latin on opposite pages, historiated woodcut initials, woodcut printer's device at the end. Modern half vellum and decorative boards, at foot of title is a contemporary presentation inscription from "Menradus" (possibly the humanist Menradus Molther, d. 1558) to one "Matthaeus", monastic library stamp on title (partly defaced), profuse manuscript annotations in a contemporary hand on six pages of the Greek text. § (Description courtesy of Fred Schreiber, upon which I cannot improve). "The First Account in Literature of a Trip to the Moon. First separate edition in the original Greek of the True Story, the first account in literature of a trip to the Moon, by the second-century A.D. Syrian-Greek satirist Lucian of Samosata. In this first-person narrative the author sets sail with a crew of fifty companions from the Straits of Gibraltar, intending to sail across the Atlantic, but is swept away by a storm for seven days and seven nights, eventually landing on the moon; there the travelers observe the first interplanetary war in literature, fought between the "Selenitai" (People of the Moon) and the "Heliotai" (People of the Sun) over colonization rights to the Morning Star. The combatants, in true science-fantasy fashion, consist of fanciful creatures that are the spiritual ancestors of those found in Flash Gordon, Star Wars, and Star Trek: "Hippogypoi" (Vulture-Knights), "Hippomyrmekoi" (Ant-Knights), "Skorodomachoi" (Garlic-Fighters), "Psyllotoxotai" (Flea-Archers), "Lachanopteroi" (The Vegetable-Winged), … [Click Below for Full Description]

DÖBER, Andreas
Hieronymus Höltzel, 1524. <p>Only edition of this address by Andreas Döber, the Lutheran theologian and chaplain of the New Hospital at Nuremburg, in which he states he has "not stopped the beseeching of the Saints," in accordance with long established Roman order. Essentially, his action did not exclude the use of Latin from the hospital, a break from Protestant tenets. This got Luther's attention, and instead of raising his ire, he saw it as a path to reconciliation and compromise. An important and little-known work in the machine of the Reformation. <i>Quarto,</i> 185 x 145 x 1 mm. A4-B2 (<b>LACKS</b> B2, a blank); [5] <i>ff</i>. Bound in recent plain wraps of old paper. <i>Interior</i>: Minor damp to last leaf. VD16 D2101, Kuczinsky 601</p>

AULUS GELLIUS
[Paris]: Jodocus Badius Ascensius, 1524. Fifth Badius Edition of the first work; Third Badius Edition of the second work. These are two typical productions of the press operated by the French humanist scholar Jodocus Badius Ascensius, or Josse Bade (1462-1535), who, like the great Aldus Manutius, was known for his editions of classical writers annotated with his own commentary. As Paul White notes in "Jodocus Badius Ascensius: Commentary, Commerce and Print in the Renaissance," Badius "played a central role in the flourishing of humanism and print culture in the French Renaissance." In four decades of printing, Badius issued more than 1,000 books, including multiple editions of both works offered here; his Aulus first appeared in 1511, and the Macrobius in 1515. First printed in 1469, "Attic Nights," the only surviving work by the Roman grammarian Aulus Gellius (ca. 125 - ca. 180), is a vast and charming collection of information gleaned from conversation and reading, a compilation containing observations about grammar, history, philosophy, and many other subjects, the whole of considerable value to us not only for the feeling of the times it conveys, but also for the numerous excerpts it contains from the works of lost ancient authors. The second work contains the two major productions of Macrobius, "In Somnium Scipionis" and the "Saturnalia," first printed by Nicholas Jenson in Venice in 1472. Little is known about the author's life, but from his writings, we conclude that Macrobius was a pagan Neoplatonist living about the year 400, one of a band of scholarly holdouts a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Van Leyden, Lucas
Np: Np, ca 1524. Van Leyden, Lucas. 12 x 7.5 cm. One copper engraved plate. BARTSCH B13. Lucas van Leyden was among the first Dutch exponents of genre painting and is generally regarded as a very accomplished engraver. Born in 1494, the engravings herein are early efforts by a highly skilled engraver who learned his art at a very early age: the earliest known print by him (Mohammed and the Murdered Monk) dates from 1508, when he was perhaps only 14. 1524 date appears at lower left corner of the engraving at Abel's knee. Tipped onto paper leaf. Fine. Item #21854.
