        Libellus In Quo Respondet Confutationi Fratris Egidij.

      Matthes Maler, Erfurt 1524 - First Edition of this rare Anti-Reformation tract by a fellow Augustinian who initially shared Luther's enthusiasms for change, but, as the movement to reform became more radical, Arnoldi placed religion unity above all other issues and began working against the Protestants. Very much of a personal position statement, this twelve part dialog between the author (speaking in the first person) and Egidius Mechler touches many controversial doctrinal points with a particular strong attack on the marriage of clerics. Some of the asides in the repartee are in German. -- Pegg 138; Hase 528. 76 leaves, some browning and pin worm holes, small defect on title page effecting 1 word. Gothic type, title printed within fine woodcut border dated 1521 of cherubs playing music, drawing Mars in a cart, etc. Short slim 4to, plain 19th Century vellum (slightly bowed), all edges red. Erphurdie: [Matthes Maler], 1524. A very good(+) copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Laberinto d'Amore di M. Giovanni Boccaccio Con una Epistola à Messer Pino de Rossi confortatoria del medesimo auttore Con: La Fiammetta del Boccaccio per Messer Tizzone Gaetano di Pofi novamente revista.

      II: Bernardino de Vitale, II: 1524. In 8° (mm 165x100); I: cc. num. 72; II: carte n.n. 116; segnatura a8, b8, - o8, p4 - q4; al colophon triangolo in silografia. Testo corsivo, capotesta con riquadri vuoti per i capolettera miniati. Solida pergamena semirigida antica, leggermente posteriore, dorso a quattro nervi e titolo manoscritto a inchiostro bruno. La prima opera è detta anche "Il Corbaccio", etimologia che sembra derivare dallo spagnolo Corbacho o dal francese Courbache, e sta a significare sferza contro le donne o riferirsi a un uccello nero (un corvo) simbolo dell'amore che rende folli; l'opera è scritta in volgare, seguendo lo schema delle rime petrose negli anni della maturità di Boccaccio, come sostiene il filologo Giorgio Padoan, nel 1365. Apre l'opera la lettera "Al gentile et valoroso giovane messer Francesco Tomacello da Fano, Lucio Paolo Rosello", sacerdote padovano, segue "Invettiva contra una malvagia donna. Detto Laberinto d'amore, et altrimenti il Corbaccio", con capolettera inciso in legno entro vignetta. Il carattere è di ispirazione manuziana e tutta l'impostazione imita il costume umanistico nelle aggiunte di dediche e testi introduttivi al lettore (il tipografo Alessandro Paganino, fu un riconosciuto imitatore di Aldo). La Fiammetta è scritta in prosa dall'autore verso il 1343 - 1344; si tratta di un monologo - confessione di una donna napoletana, che racconta la sua vicenda amorosa alle altre donne, per suscitarne compassione e potersi consolare delle proprie pene; questo tema erge l'opera a novella psicologica, in lingua moderna. Edizione molto rara.Ottimo esemplare, fresco, solo sporadiche fioriture; alcune antiche sottolineature a inchiostro bruno nel Corbaccio. Laberinto d'amore "Edizione assai rara, dopo la prima dei Giunti del 1516", Bacchi della Lega, 116 in nota: "Ediz.

Full XVI century vellum, manuscript title on spine. Finely printed in Paganino's Italic font, in imitation of the Aldine. A fine copy of this work about misogyny, but whether Boccaccio's text is descriptive or proscriptive has been a subject ot scholarly debate for several centuries. Anthony K. Cassell, in his 1975 translation of the work, asserts, that "the formal elements of the treatise are part of a wide artistic tradition and contest autobiographical intention and interpretation." Giovanni Boccaccio wrote Il Corbaccio in Italian in the mid - fourteenth century 1343 - 1344. From the mid - eighteenth century to the mid - twentieth century, critics interpreted the Corbaccio as autobiographical and misogynistic. Then, from 1947 to 1975, they interpreted the Corbaccio as fictional and misogynistic. For the next quarter century, leading critics described the Corbaccio as fictional and ridiculing of misogynists. Today, cutting - edge fourth - wave critics recognize that the Corbaccio is realistic and love - affirming. The Fiammetta written in about 1343 - 1344 is a monologue - confession of a neapolitam woman, telling her love stories to other women in order to get consolation of her pains It is quite simple but very striking and elegant, most appropriate for the text and printing within. It has been called the first psychological novel in a modern language. Laberinto d'amore "Edizione assai rara, dopo la prima dei Giunti del 1516", Bacchi della Lega, 116 in nota: "Ediz.

Quid autem singuli libri toto opere contineant, sequenti pagella, videre est.

      (Antwerp, Michiel Hillen van Hoochstraten for Franz Birckmann, 1524). - 4to (140 x 195 mm). (96) ff, numbered in an early hand (omitting f. 77). Elaborate woodcut border on title-page, featuring elephant and cherubim, and with several large woodcut initials in text. Bound in early limp vellum with manuscript title on spine; edges stained red. 17th century portrait of Vives added to inner cover. Lengthy, exegetical early annotations to the first book 'De Instituenda Virgine' along with readership markings. A very good copy from the Harrach Library (Austria/Madrid), with 19th century stamp on title. Very rare first edition of "the first systematic study to address explicitly and exclusively the universal education of women", commissioned by Henry VIII's wife, Catherine of Aragon, who was at the time rearing her own daughter, Mary Tudor. Translated and adapted by numerous followers, Vives' treatise would go on to be read in almost every European vernacular, often by women themselves. The first edition, however, is rare in census and in commerce - and contains passages, particularly on chastity and intellectual capacity, which were entirely re-written in later incarnations. A fundamental document for the role of women in Early Modern society - and particularly in Early Modern England - this copy is especially remarkable for its state of preservation. An early reader of Vives has here added his own comments to the chapters on the seclusion of maidens and examples of feminine virtue. - "De Institutione Foeminae Christianae" consists of 3 books, one for each stage of woman's life: maidenhood, marriage, and widowhood. In his preface to Queen Catherine, Vives quotes Aristotle to the effect that states which do not provide for the education of women deprive themselves of a great source of their prosperity; yet as Charles Fantazzi points out, Vives is in fact here caught in a delicate double bind, "insistent on a subordinate, submissive role for women, the text must take care to expound its message not only without alienating the queen but rather, indeed, with the goal of winning her favour." Despite its dedication and although Vives specifically adapts his prose style for a female readership, the treatise is hardly pro-woman: "the 'Education' is determined to be both a reference book for men on how to control their women, as well as an edifying treatise for women to absorb as a source of proper behaviour" (Kolsky). Nevertheless, Vives' praise of women's intellectual capacity and his advocation of some form of universal learning for females are viewed as landmarks for modern historians of women and gender. - According to Fantazzi, "'De Institutione' enjoyed an enormous popularity and was generally regarded as the most authoritative statement on this subject throughout the sixteenth century, especially in England, where it found favor with Catholics and Protestants alike. There can be no denying that merely by attaching such importance to the education of women, Vives laid the groundwork for the Elizabethan age of the cultured woman." It was rapidly translated into English, enjoying some nine editions in that language during the 16th century alone (cf. Higginbotham, p. 69). According to Pollie Bromilow, the dozens of vernacular translations were partly aimed at women themselves, who had no knowledge of Latin; and thus a large segment of its readership during the 16th century was in fact female. Appearing in an undated edition as early as 1528 or 1529, the English translation is rather an adaptation of Vives' text begun by Thomas More but completed by his household tutor, William Hyrde, who must have used the present edition in its preparation. - In 1538 Vives brought out a revised Latin edition reflecting many changes to the original text. This is the edition most commonly cited by scholars, probably thanks to its greater availability. The sections on maidens and the preservation of maidenhood (in all its meanings), however, were substantially re-written - notably, treating many of the same subjects which int [Attributes: First Edition]

      Io De Moylin (ad impensis Vincentii De Ferrariis de tridino) 1524 In 4, cc. 174. Frontespizio in rosso e nero con bella cornice xilografica e grande marca tipografica del trinese Vincenzo Portonari. Galleria di tarlo riparata che interessa il margine sup. delle cc. 17 - 34, senza particolari lesioni al testo. Antiche annotazioni agli ampi margini. Piena pergamena settecentesca con sguardie rinfrescate.  Terza edizione ma prima che raccolga anche i libri 5o e 6o, redatti negli anni 1522 - 23 e per la prima volta in questa edizione lionese a spese del Trinese Vincenzo Portonari. L'opera, la piu' nota di questo giurista nato a Buttigliera e cittadino astese, redatta in forma di quaestio, tratta dell'opportunita' del contrarre matrimonio, analizzato nelle parti che lo sconsigliano (libri I e II) e in quelle che lo incoraggiano (libri  III e IV) e raccoglie un ampissimo patrimonio di nozioni e luoghi comuni legati alla misoginia classica e medioevale insieme alle piu' aggiornate trattazioni sul tema. Il Nevizzano conclude nella sostanza a favore del contrarre matrimonio ma solamente in quei casi in cui le condizioni personali e di status permettano un corretto rapporto gerarchico nella coppia, propendendo comunque per una naturale inferiorita' della donna. La trattazione e' pero' molto ampia e si allarga all'importante quesito 'debeat se iudex continere in iudicando' al 'modum arguendi in iure' cosi' come al dirimere le lotte tra fazioni guelfe e ghibelline ecc. Nella seconda meta' del cinquecento l'opera venne messa all'indice a causa di certe citazioni tratte da opere di Martin Lutero e alla denuncia dei costumi corrotti del clero. Baudrier, V, 423 - 24.

Einer von etwa 10 Drucken im Jahr der Erstausgabe. - Nikolaus Herman(n)s erfolgreichste Schrift und eine der meistgedruckten Flugschriften der Reformationszeit. Zunächst anonym erschienen, wurde sie anfänglich sogar für eine Schrift Luthers gehalten. Hermanns spätere Bedeutung beruht vor allem auf seinen Beiträgen zur Entwicklung des evangelischen Kirchenliedes. In dem vorliegenden 'Mandat Jesu' wird zum erstenmal die literarische Form des Himmelsbriefes für die Zwecke der Reformation benutzt. Das Mandat kommt direkt von Jesus und evoziert die mittelalterliche Lehensordnung mit Jesus als Erbherrn, dem alle Getauften durch ihre Taufe gehuldigt haben. Der Evangelist Matthäus erscheint als Kanzler, Paulus als Hauptmann. Alle werden aufgeboten, um das an den Teufel verlorene Schloß (das von den Papisten verfälschte Evangelium) zurückzuerobern.

      1524 - One of the earliest jurist of the New World, a copy later owned by the foremost historian of the Americas of the 18th century. 1524. Salamanca. Gaspar de Rossiñolis. In folio (254 x 185 mm.) xlviii ff. [a-b8, c-f6, g-h4 [g4 blank]. Nineteenth century Spanish calf, tooled in simple gilt fillets, spine flat, with lettering labels. Title page slightly trimmed by the binder, just affecting the outer border, generally very good with the usual signs of deterioration common to Spanish gothics; ownership inscription on title page “De los libros de Don Andrés González de Barcia”. First edition. Palacios Rubios was a renowned jurist and humanist during the time of the Catholic Kings, acting as Minister to the Council of the Indies, President to the Council of the Mesta, and member of the Royal Council, amongst other high-ranking positions. In 1512 he wrote the famous Requerimiento, a standard work of importance to the colonization of the Americas, which was read to the American natives, instructing them to subdue peacefully; in it, the natives were informed they were vassals to both the Spanish monarch and the Pope, and that refusal to accept the fact –or even worst, resisting it- would bring as consequence the subjugation by force. This is the only work by Palacios Rubios ever written in Spanish, it possesses a strong political content, and it would also be his last, he died at 74, the same year it saw the printing presses. In the 18th century, Antonio de Sancha took on the re-impression of the work in a remarkably well-produced edition. Maggs Bros, Spanish Books, 1927: “The first edition of one of the earliest Spanish ethical works of the Renaissance. It is the only book which Palacios Rubios wrote in Spanish, and is his most literary work, in which he dwells upon the virtues of military heroism, and make a subtle analysis of this quality from the moral and psychological point of view” Rare, we could only trace one copy, sold at Sotheby´s, lot 288, 1952. Provenance: for an author of such a relevance in the history of early Spanish colonization of the Americas, a remarkable lineage, this copy belonged to one of the foremost eighteenth century Spanish bibliographers and historians, Andres Gonzalez Barcia, author of the Historiadores primitivos de Indias, and the revised editions of the Descripcion de las Indias Occidentales by Herrera, and Garcilasso de la Vega´s Historia del Peru and the Commentarios Reales.

Este mapa contém, na verdade, dois mapas em um fólio: um dos quais representa Tenochtitlan (Cidade do México), elaborado pelos Méxicas e oferecido a Cortez como um presente no período 1519-1521; junto com um mapa da costa do Golfo do México e parte do Sudeste dos actuais Estados Unidos, preparado quer pelo Méxicas ou por um explorador espanhol da época da conquista.

In 1664 he returned to Spain, to assume command of the war against Portugal after the defeat of John of Austriain 1663 in the Battle of Ameixial, near Estremoz. Caracena wasn't able to change the tide, and he was defeated in the Battle of Montes Claros, near Vila Viçosa in 1665. After the battle, Caracena was charged with treason and cowardice.

        Naturalis historiae opus.

      (Cologne, Eucharius Cervicornus, 1524). - Folio. (16), 311, (60) ff. Title-page and sub-title to index with ornamental woodcut border. Woodcut initials, head and tail pieces. Calf, gold-tooled ribbed spine with title-label. Sprinkled edges. First edition of the "Natural history" edited by Johannes Caesarius (1468-1550), a humanist and close friend of Erasmus. The original text was by Gaius Plinius Secundus (AD 23 - August 25, AD 79), better known as Pliny the Elder. He was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and personal friend of the emperor Vespasian. The text in the present edition is decorated with woodcut borders and many woodcut initials. - The "Naturalis Historia" is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available to Pliny. He claims to be the only Roman ever to have undertaken such a work. It comprised 37 books in 10 volumes and covered over 20.000 facts on topics including the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy , geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Some technical advances he discusses are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding corn. Much of what he wrote about has been confirmed by archaeology. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf [.] Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls [. He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised [.] The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 holds a chapter that gives the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. - Not only is it virtually the only work which describes the work of artists of the time, and has it become an important reference work for the history of art, due to the wide range of topics, the referencing system and index it became a model for later encyclopaedias. - With manuscript notes of multiple owners on pastedown (including written ex-libris by Antonii Mauritii Seguin 1713 and Mathon de la cour 1744). Some underling in text, and notes in the margins (partly lost due to trimmed edges). A very good copy with bookplate of De Ponsainpierre on pastedown. VD 16, P 3531. Adams P 1556. BM-STC German 704. Durling 3689 (imperfect copy). Hunt 23. USTC (11 copies). [Attributes: First Edition]

      [colophon: Venetiis: per Francisum de Bindonis Small square 8vo (14 cm; 5.5"). 98 [i.e., 96] ff.. 21 April 1524] Savonarola's detailed instructions for confessors are here newly edited by the philologist Lucas Olchinensis Panaetius (fl. 1518) and dedicated to Antonio Contarini (d. 1524), a patriarch of Venice. First published coincident with Savonarola's death, this manual was reprinted at least 42 times in the next 200 years and was so popular that the Pope in 1581 contributed a preface! Specifically addressed to young priests, it reviews various sins, describes the qualities of a good confessor, guides the reader through interrogation techniques, and assigns appropriate penances, thereby bearing => singular, significant witness to Savonarola's effective work as a conventional priest, not a radical public reformer loudly auguring the Apocalypse. The Rudimentary References of Elias de Ferrariis (d. 1348), another tool for novice priests, is appended starting on p. 45. A famous woodcut of Savonarola seated to the left of a desk in his cell, writing, beneath a crucifix and a window without bars, introduces an edition of his text that is neatly printed in Gothic type with two large, ten-line criblé woodcut initials beginning the major sections. Marks of readership: Sparse underlining, a couple annotations, and manicules, all in early ink. 20th-century patterned paper–covered boards, faded blue edges (with a few marginal stains from the blue paint); trimmed close, especially at foot. Repairs to first and final leaves affecting one word in the title and a few letters in the letter to the editor; small tear to one leaf's upper margin crossing headline without loss; final quire with most leaves repaired at gutter and two at the top inner margin; leaves 92 to end with both a very small semicircular area of insect-gnawing to fore-edges and a modest brown stain in the upper outer corners not affecting text. => A good, evocative little book.

      - (Augsburg, H. Steiner), 1524. 4to. 4 Bl. Mit floraler Holzschnitt-Titelbordüre. Moderner Umschlag. Lorenzo Campeggio hatte bereits 1522 für den dann schon nach kurzer Regierung verstorbenen Papst Hadrian VI. ein umsichtiges Gutachten zur Kirchenreform erstellt. Unter Hadrians Nachfolger Clemens VII. kam er als Legat nach Deutschland, wo er schnell erkennen musste, dass die Maßnahmen des Wormser Edikts gegen Luther nicht umgesetzt wurden und wirkungslos blieben. Als zudem noch auf dem Nürnberger Reichstag 1524 die Einberufung eines deutschen Nationalkonzils mit durchaus ungewissem Ausgang beschlossen wurde, betrieb Campeggio ein Bündnis der süddeutschen und rheinischen Fürsten gegen Luther. Der Regensburger Konvent (27.6. - 7.7. 1524) beschloss, um der Gegenseite den Wind aus den Segeln zu nehmen, die Beseitigung zahlreicher Missstände. Obwohl auch diese Maßnahmen nicht umgesetzt wurden, war der Konvent "das erste aus konfessionellen Gründen entstandene Sonderbündnis im Dt. Reich und markiert zugleich den Beginn der katholischen Reform" (Taddey, Lex. d. dt. Gesch. 1017).- Kuczynski 157; VD 16 C 626. - Leicht gebräunt. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Basel: Valentin Curio 7. März 1524. 4°. Auch nach dem frühen Tod des Ceporinus hat Curio sein Programm mit Griechischlehrbüchern fortgesetzt: im August 1523 erschienen die vier Bücher der Grammatik des Theodorus Gaza in lateinischer Übersetzung, bestehend aus der Übersetzung des Erasmus (Buch 1 und 2), ergänzt durch Übersetzungen von Conrad Heresbach, Jacques Toussain und Richard Croke (GG 31). Im März 1524 folgt nun die erste lateinisch verfasste griechische Grammatik, die seit ihrem Erstdruck durch Manutius von 1497 schon mehrfach nachgedruckte Grammatik des Urbano Valeriani (Urbanus Bellunensis, Urbano Bolzanio). . Ein Beispiel schlichtesten Unterrichts habe Gaza gegeben, und niemand sei ihm geschickter gefolgt als Urbanus. ."), + 37 (". Hier hat der Drucker dem Werk die ersten beiden Bücher der in seiner Offizin, zuvor Valentin Curios, seit 1529 schon mehrmals gedruckten Grammatik des Theodoros Gazes beigegeben, ohne die übliche Übersetzung. In seiner Widmung an die Schüler der griechischen Grammatik nennt der Drucker Moschopulos, den er ins 15. Jahrhundert datiert, den bedeutendsten unter den Grammatikern, die im vergangenen Jahrhundert die Wissenschaft wiederhergestellt (instaurare) hätten, was Philipp Melanchthon bezeuge. Worauf Walder an Beispielen seine Sorgfalt in der Behandlung des Stoffes darlegt und den Schülern zu einem solchen Lehrbuch gratuliert. Sodann weist er auf die ersten beiden Bücher der Grammatik des Theodoros Gazes hin, die er, ohne die lateinische Übersetzung, zum Vergleich beigegeben habe, und darauf, dass deren Text vielleicht durch Abweichungen von den andern Ausgaben überrasche: er habe ihn nach dem Wortlaut zweier Abschriften des Autors selber verbessert: die eine aus Besitz des Baptista Guarinus (des jüngsten Sohnes des Guarinus Veronensis), in Ferrara als Gazes dort lehrte niedergeschrieben, die andere aus dem des Bolognesers Codrus Urceus. .") + 287 (". von den unter ihm wie zuvor Valentin Curio in der Offizin erschienenen Autoren und Werken wie dem Lexicon Graecum (noch unter Curio 1532), Perottus (Cornu copiae 1532 Curio, Walder 1536) und Calepinus (1530, 1535, wieder 1538), den (griechischen) Grammatiken des Theodorus (Gaza: 1529, dann wieder 1540 [GG 37], 1541) und Urbanus (Bolzanus: 1530, 1535, dann wieder 1539). Und vom griechischen Lexikon plane er schon wieder eine neue Ausgabe (1537, dann wieder 1539, 1541). .") Der zeitgenössische Einband schreit nach einem guten Restaurator: der Block vollständig gebrochen, der Rücken nur noch aus Fragmenten bestehend, einzelne Seiten gelöst. Jedoch mit zahlreichen hübsch illustrierten Holzschnittinitialen in beiden Bänden.

Hier auch vereinzelt Wurmspuren im weißen Rand. Der beigebundene Urbanus recht sauber, nur sehr vereinzelt und schwach in den weißen Rändern Wasserspuren. Im Vergleich zum digitalisierten Exemplar des Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek fällt auf, daß beim Binden wohl das vorletzte weiße und das letzte Blatt des Gaza, das nur die Druckermarke des Walder zierte, vergessen wurde; beim erwähnten Exemplar der BSB sind jedoch die gedruckten Hinweise auf die Offizin auf dem Titelblatt und dem letzten Blatt unleserlich gemacht worden.

      [Nuremberg: Fridericus Peypus], 1524. Folio. [4],49,12 leaves. Lacks map, supplied in expert facsimile, and blank leaf leaf H8. Eighteenth century three-quarter vellum and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Bookplate of John Carter Brown on front pastedown, with deaccession stamp. Minor soiling in the text, else very good. Cortés' Second Letter: The Conquest of Mexico The first Latin edition of Cortés' second letter, after its original publication in Seville in 1522. The work was translated by Petrus Savorgnanus. This copy bears the portrait of Pope Clement VII on the verso of the fourth preliminary leaf, which is not found with all copies. Cortés' second letter, dated Oct. 30, 1520, provides a vivid account of the people he encountered and fought en route to Tenochtitlan, painting a picture of an impressive empire centered around a great city. He relates his scrape with rival Velazquez and gives a wonderful description of the buildings, institutions, and court at Tenochtitlan. It is here that Cortés provides a definitive name for the country, calling it "New Spain of the Ocean Sea." This letter is also important for making reference to Cortés' "lost" first letter, supposedly composed at Vera Cruz on July 10, 1520. Whether that letter was actually lost or suppressed by the Council of the Indies is unknown, but there is little doubt it once existed. The text is the first major announcement to the world of the discovery of major civilizations in the New World, and as such is a work of surpassing importance. As usual, the second letter is here bound with Peter Martyr's De Rebus, et Insulis Noviter Repertis.. ., which provides an account of the recently discovered islands of the West Indies and their inhabitants. It is often considered a substitute for the lost first Cortés letter. One of the most important early descriptions of Mexico and the first encounter of the West with the Aztec civilization, and a work of bedrock importance to the New World.

        Precatio Dominica in Septem Portiones Distributa.

      Basel Johann Bebel [not before August ] 1524 - 8vo. A-B8 C4: 20 leaves, the last a blank. With 8 outstanding illustrations by Hans Holbein the Younger, cut in metal by the Monogrammist CV Tiny tear in outer margin of last three leaves, last 4 leaves with light staining, mostly marginal.19th century vellum, gilt, shield shaped title label to upper cover, housed in slip-case.Hieronymus, Oberrheinische Buchillustration, no. 436a.; VD16 E-3448; Erasmus Online no. 3235 (not in Rotterdam); Bezzel 1620.This edition not in Adams nor BL /STC.I quote from unpublished papers of the late Jörg Schäfer, well-known dealer in rare books from Basel:?The existence of a concurrent Precatio Dominica edition printed by Johann Bebel with Holbein?s illustrations printed from the same blocks as in Froben?s [of the same year] is rather uncommon and quite puzzling. Though Froben?s edition is likely to be the earlier one, the impressions of the blocks in Bebel?s edition are generally better regarding both regular inking and pression. Furthermore, Bebel adorned the beginning of the text with a more suitable initial than Froben had done. For some reason, Bebel could use the 'A' from Holbein?s famous «Alphabet with Scenes from the Old Testament» which became available in August 1524 (cf. Basle Holbein Catalogue, 1960, no. 412; Woltmann 251; and Reinhardt, op. cit., p.238).Although it remains an enigma why Froben lent these blocks to Bebel, it is obvious that the younger printer, who had just set up his own officin in 1523, wanted to prove with this edition the excellency of his workmanship. It is evident that the blocks have been moved and handled with the utmost care; even a close examination and comparison of the impressions with those from Froben?s press did not yield the smallest damage or defect which so often occurs on succesively used printing material. It is tempting to ascribe this careful execution of a job to the printer?s respect for the artistic qualities of these outstanding illustrations; in any case it conforms to the professional estimation which in the years to come Johann Bebel enjoyed among his contemporaries. «Bebelium omnium chalcographum primum et principem esse, vere ac recte puto» , writes Jacob Milichius in a letter of 23 January 1531 from Wittenberg to Jacob Grynaeus (S. Grynaei epistolae, ed. W. Th. Streubner, Basel 1847, p. 19).? [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Juan López de Palacios Rubios fue un destacado jurista en la época de los Reyes Católicos. Fue Ministro del Consejo de Indias, Presidente del Concejo de la Mesta, miembro del Consejo Real, del Consejo de Castilla, redactor de las Leyes de Toro. En 1512 redactó el famoso Requerimiento que lleva su nombre, y que fue leído durante la conquista de América a los indígenas, conminándoles a someterse pacíficamente. En el texto se les informaba a los nativos que eran vasallos del monarca castellano y súbditos del papa y, en el caso de que opusiesen resistencia se les anunciaba que serían sometidos por la fuerza y convertidos en esclavos. Escribió importantes obras entre las que se encuentran escritos de carácter teórico sobre el duelo, el desafío y la filosofía militar, entre los que destaca el Tractado del esfuerço bellico heroyco, la única obra que escribió en castellano con un marcado carácter político y reimpresa lujosamente en el siglo XVIII por Antonio de Sanca. Falleció a los 74 años el mismo año de su publicación, en 1524. Maggs Bros, Spanish Books, 1927: “The first edition of one of the earliest Spanish ethical works of the Renaissance. It is the only book which Palacios Rubios wrote in Spanish, and is his most literary work, in which he dwells upon the virtues of military heroism, and make a subtle analysis of this quality from the moral and physchological point of view. he takes fine and notable examples from histiry and scripture and deduce a sound moral from each. An interesting tabla is appended, giving the summary of the previous chapters more or less in the form of maxims, as, for example: “it is not enough for a man to begin well if he does not end well”, “Virtue that is praised, tends to develop amongst youths”; “Illustrious death is better than obscure life”; “Both daring and fear are born of love”. Procedencia: Ejemplar que perteneció al bibliógrafo e historiador González Barcia, autor de los Historiadores primitivos de Indias, como reza en portada anotación manuscrita del siglo XVII: De los libros de Don Andrés González de Barcia. Algunas anotaciones marginales del XVII, ligeros puntos de oxidación. Margen lateral derecho de portada algo corto.

        Cosmographia sive descriptio universi Orbis... Adiecti sunt alii, tum Gemmae Frisii, tum aliorum auctorum eius argumenti tractatus ac libelli varij... -

      In - 4. Bella legatura moderna in stile dell'epoca in piena pelle con filetti e fregi dorati sui piatti, titolo impr. in oro, dorso con nervi e fregi impressi a secco. Con un globo sul frontespizio, un mappamondo a doppia pagina, moltissime illustrazioni n.t., 5 con parti mobili, e diversi graziosi capilettera, il tutto inc. in legno. (16), 478 (recte 465), (3) pp.; le pp. 73 - 81 e 426 - 429 saltate per errore di stampa, ma completo; frontespizio con piccoli restauri marginali e alcune carte lievemente ossidate; buon esemplare, completo di tutte le parti mobili e del grande mappamondo che spesso manca. La prima di tre tirature di questa importante edizione che, per l'aggiunta di diversi studi e commentari di vari astronomi (alcuni pubblicati per la prima volta), è molto più ampia delle precedenti composte per lo più da 50 - 70 carte (prima edizione: 1524). Ortroy, Apian, 59. Adams A - 1286. DSB I, pp. 178 - 179: «Apian was a pioneer in astronomical and geographical instrumentation... (his) first major work, Cosmographia, was based on Ptolomy. Starting with the distinction between cosmography, geography, and chorography, and using an ingenious and simple diagram, the book defines terrestrial grids; describes the use of maps and simple surveying; defines weather and climate; and provides thumbnail sketches of the continents. In its later form, as modified by Gemma Frisius, the Cosmographia was one of the most popular texts of the time...» The first of three issues of this greatly enlarged edition (earlier editions have about 50 - 70 leaves only): "Clement pronounces this the best edition" (Sabin 1751). For a list of the many additions by Gemma Frisius, Georg Peurbach, Sebastian Münster a.o., cf. Ortroy 59. With a globe on title - page, many woodcut initials, a folding world map, and many woodcut illustrations and diagrams, 5 with volvelles. Small marginal repairs to title and some occasional light toning of the paper; generally a good and complete copy, in an attractive period - style calf binding with gilt and blind - stamped ornaments.

Many of these devices are reproduced, such as battering rams, scaling machines, a helmet for use under water, some simple constructions of water clocks, & c. The third book deals with tactics and battle formations and is illustrated with many typographical diagrams.

Signed within the plate with Lucas&#39;s initial "L" and dated 1524. 2 or 3 very small and unobtrusive repairs. Very good impression. </p> <p>Lucas&#39;s famous engraving of a typical barber-surgeon at work. "It has been suggested that this engraving is a subtle indictment of the barber-surgeon. He is shown wearing elegant attire, whereas his patient is portrayed as a poor country bumpkin. In the artistic language of the day the large, heavy purse below the surgeon&#39;s right arm signalled an undue preoccupation with money" (Rutkow, Surgery: An Illustrated History, p. 121).

FILLED WITH WOODCUTS OF FACES AND THEIR CHARACTERISTICS AS WELL AS CLEARLY MARKED PALMS WITH INSTRUCTIONS FOR READING (approx 80 full page woodcuts of Palms alone!) An extremely rare an important edition of which I cannot readily trace other copies. Thorndike, in his classic 'History of Experimental Magic" pg 64. states the First Italian edition was printed in 1525 and a German edition at Strassburg in 1530. The book here is not recorded by him and predates that German edition by six years. The Book: Cocliti, B. Ein kurtzer bericht der gantzen Phiionomey und Ciromancy. Strassburg, 1524. small 8vo, mottled boards, internally very clean copy, handsome woodcuts throughout and fine dark impression, last leaf in facsimile. An extremely rare, well illustrated and important edition. The last earliest copy in the ABPC auction records is the 1534 edition in a very worn state. The 1536 edition realized last $747.00 at Sotheby's Oct 21st, 1980 lot 448. Physiognomy is the interpretation of outward appearance, especially the features of the face, to discover a person's predominant temper and character. Physiognomy has also been used as a kind of divination and is often associated with astrology. o Coclès, like others before and after him, tried to create a science out of something each of us does from time to time: judge a person by his or her facial characteristics. Physiognomists like Coclès are wont to say things such as "people with snub noses are vain, untruthful, unstable, unfaithful and seducers." Cocles extended the pseudo scientific analysis to palm reading, writing one of the most enduring and influential text on Chiromancy. 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]
