PETRARCA FRANCESCO.
Siviglia, per Joan Varela de Salamanca, 1524. In-folio; 4 cc., 169 cc., 1 c. Legatura di Leigthon Brewer in tutto marocchino nocciola con impressioni a secco ai piatti e al dorso di gusto rinascimentale, titoli al dorso e fregi in oro ai labbri, tagli dorati. Restauro all'angolo e parzialmente al margine basso bianco a scalare nelle prime 8 carte e, in misura minima, nelle ultime 4, qualche piccolo segno di tarlo riparato al margine bianco di alcune carte. Esemplare appartenuto a Federico II Gonzaga (1500-1540) e proveniente dalla biblioteca di Charles Butler of Warren Wood Hatfield (ex libris). Esemplare appartenuto a Federico II Gonzaga, Duca e Marchese di Mantova, figlio di Isabella d'Este e Francesco II, con attestato manoscritto coevo al margine bianco superiore del titolo: "Ill mi. dni. March. Mantue", di una rara edizione, stampata a Siviglia, in spagnolo, dei "Rimedi" di Petrarca. Mirabile esempio di "gotico spagnolo", il libro Š introdotto da un titolo impresso in rosso con grandi caratteri tipici, circondato da una elaborata bordura architettonica xilografica con figure, incisa in nero. In fine altro grande legno con le armi di Consalvo di Cordova a cui l'edizione Š dedicata. Assai interessante la provenienza di questo volume: sono note lettere di Federico in merito a libri a lui donati o da lui ricercati in anni in cui la corte di Mantova anche per attenzione e cura di Isabella d'Este, sua madre, divenne un punto di riferimento per artisti, letterati e studiosi. Charles Butler (1821-1907) fu letterato e appassionato collezionista di libri e d'arte antica. La sua … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plinius Secundus, Gaius (Pliny the Elder).
(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. ''W … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOETHIUS.
Venice: Ottaviano I Scoto & C., 1524. Venice: Ottaviano I Scoto & C.,, 1524. En lector candidissime Severini Boetii de consolatu philosophico deque disciplina scholastica divina opuscula... Folio (322 x 215 mm). Contemporary polished calf, red morocco label and two hand written paper labels to spine, spine and front boards elaborately decorated in blind. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown, neat ink annotations to title page. Minor wear to extremities and a few marks to boards, hinges cracked but holding, a little foxing and dampstains to contents, an excellent copy. Second edition thus, with pseudo-Thomas Aquinas's and Jodocus Badius Ascensius's commentaries, 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 expressed" (John Marenbon, The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). The linguistically and philosophically intricate De consolatione philosophiae was vastly influential in the Middle Ages and remains of foundational importance to the modern philosophy of religion today. Badius Ascensius's predominately philological commentary for schoolboys was first published in 1498 and was extremely popular in the following decades; the commentary of pseudo-Thomas often accompanied Badius's in print.

STÖR, Thomas.
- O.O., Dr. u. J. (Augsburg, H. Steiner, 1524). 4to. 24 Bl. Mit großem, fast ganzseitigen Titelholzschnitt nach S. Beham. Moderner Umschlag. Einer von drei Drucken im gleichen Jahr. Umfangreichste Schrift dieses evangelischen Laien. Um den verwüsteten Weingarten des Herrn wieder fruchtbar zu machen, müssen die ungelehrten und geistlosen Prediger und Pfarrherren eines ungottseligen pharisäischen Wandels vom Predigtamt entfernt werden. An ihrer Stelle sind den Gemeinden "menner aines christlichen lebens, und hailsamer leer (zu) verordnen". Entsprechend enthält die Schrift im ersten Teil eine massive Kritik am alten Klerus, den "bösen Gärtnern" und "geistlichen Böcken", die den Weinberg als ihre Pfründe missbraucht haben. Interessant ist der zweite Teil, in dem der Verfasser in Anlehnung an das Urchristentum ein demokratisches Gemeindebild entwirft: Wahl des neuen Seelsorgers aus der Gemeindemitte heraus. Wichtig dabei ist nicht, dass er ein studierter Mann sei. Obwohl gute Schriftkenntnis zur Auseinandersetzung mit den Altgläubigen nötig sei, komme es doch vor allem auf den christlichen Lebenswandel an. Möglicherweise gehörte der Verfasser zum linken, spiritualistischen Flügel der Reformation. Der Titelholzschnitt zeigt Jesus und Paulus in einem Weingarten, der von Böcken geplündert wird. - Hayn/Got. VII, 446: "Sämmtlich Raritäten!"; Kuczynski 2571; VD 16 S 9214. - Gebräunt u. etwas fingerfleckig, einige Bl. mit schmaler Feuchtigkeitsspur im Außenrand, die ersten 4 Bl. mit kl. Randläsuren.

Peter APIAN (1495-1552) . Holzschnitt und Typendruck (leicht gebräunt und fleckig, Manuskript im Rand unten, ansonsten gut erhalten), Blattmaße: 21 x 16 cm.
- Jahr : Aus Cosmographicus liber (Fol. 4v), erstm. publ. Landshut 1524. Das vorliegende Blatt stammt aus dem Cosmographicus liber des deutschen Renaissance-Gelehrten Peter Apian (1495-1552), bei dem es sich um eine umfassende Anleitung zu den Bereichen Astronomie, Kartographie, Geographie, Navigation und Instrumentenherstellung handelt. Die ganzseitige, schöne Holzschnitt-Illustration einer Armillarsphäre befindet sich im ersten Kapitel des Traktats („Prima pars huius libri di Cosmographiae et Geographiae principiis [ ]"), in dem Apian die beiden Wissenschaftsgebiete der Geographie und Kosmographie vorstellt und voneinander abgegrenzt. Eine Armillarsphäre (lat. armilla „Armreif", sphaera „Kugel"), auch Weltmaschine genannt, ist ein astronomisches Gerät und dient der Darstellung der Bewegung von Himmelskörpern, das vorrangig ab der Mitte des 15. Jahrhunderts in Europa Verbreitung fand. Eine Armillarsphäre besteht aus mehreren gegeneinander drehbaren Metallringen, die insgesamt die Form einer Kugel bilden. Dieses Gebilde ist in der Regel in einem Gestell montiert, in dessen Mitte - gemäß des damals herrschenden geozentrischen Weltbildes - sich eine Erdkugel befindet. Nach der Einführung des Teleskops in die Astronomie durch Galileo Galilei zu Beginn des 17. Jahrhunderts trat die Armillarsphäre als Beobachtungsinstrument immer mehr in den Hintergrund, da sie aufgrund ihrer Bauweise nur schlecht mit einem Teleskop bestückt werden konnte. In den folgenden Jahrhunderten wurde die Armillarsphäre daher vorrangig zu einem Gegenstand künstlerischer Darstellung und zum … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRST GIUNTA EDITION, very rare. Celsus' De medicina, written c. 30 C.E., is the oldest Western medical document after the Hippocratic writings, the earliest major medical treatise written in Latin to survive, and the first of the treatises on medicine from the ancient world to be published in English. Prior to this edition of Celsus, fragments of Hippocrates, such as the Hippocratic Oath, were translated into English, but virtually all of Hippocrates, Galen and other classical writers on medicine and surgery waited until the nineteenth or twentieth century to be translated. Celsus remains the most important source of present-day knowledge of medicine in the Roman empire. … [Click Below for Full Description]

(HOMER)
(Venetiis [Venice]: In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Asulani Soceri, 1524). Third Aldine edition. Two volumes. 8vo. 277 (1); 251, (1), (56) ff. Nineteenth century full vellum to style, spines with gilt lettering and gilt rules, patterned endpapers. Publisher's anchor device to the verso of the both works and recto of the first leaf of the second work. A few minor marks to the vellum, the colophon to volume II with a single track of worming, a very good set overall. The set was evidently made up in the 19th century, the volumes being very slightly different heights in their uniform bindings. Furthermore, the final 56 leaf section bound in at the rear of the second volume, comprising the Hymni and usually found at the front of the first volume, has been supplied from a copy of one of the previous Aldine editions of 1504 or 1517. Similarly 10-14 ff. in the Iliad have also been supplied from another copy of one of these earlier Aldine editions. In both cases the leaves are slightly shorter and the edges have been treated differently, the larger section speckled in red and the other slightly tinted. The printing is nonetheless of a piece with the rest of the work and it is textually complete.

STÖR, THOMAS).
- O.O., Dr. u. J. (Nürnberg, H. Hergot, 1524?). 4to. 10 Bl. (das letzte weiß). Mit großem, fast ganzseitigen Titelholzschnitt. Moderner Umschlag. Evangelisch laienchristliche Schrift gegen den Zölibat. Die Gabe der Keuschheit sei ungemein selten, Ehestand und Sexualität dagegen von Gott gewollt. Wer sich dem verschließe "und sich der Eheweiber enthelt, der muß gewißlich mit andern geschlechten der unkeüschait befleckt werden". Laut Vorrede Erstlingsschrift Thomas Störs, der abgesehen von zwei weiteren im selben Jahr veröffentlichten Schriften völlig unbekannt geblieben ist. Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist wohl ein Nachdruck der Erfurter Ausgabe von 1524. Der Nürnberger Hans Hergot druckte vor allem volkstümliche reformatorische Kleinschriften, häufig Nachdrucke, weshalb Luther ihn auch verklagte. Bekannt wurde Hergot im Zusammenhang mit den sozialradikalen Strömungen der Zeit. Er hatte Kontakt zu Thomas Münzer. Anfang 1527 nach der Niederlage der Bauern ließ er in Sachsen die sozialutopische Schrift 'Von der neuen Wandlung eines christlichen Lebens' vertreiben und war wohl auch selbst damit agitierend unterwegs. Ob er auch der Verfasser war, ist unklar. Jedenfalls wurde er verhaftet und am 20. Mai 1527 als Haupt einer revolutionären Verschwörung hingerichtet (vgl. NDB 8, 612). - Der Titelholzschnitt zeigt die eheliche Zusammenführung von Adam und Eva durch Gottvater ("Seyt fruchtbar und meret euch ."). Das Motiv ist dasselbe, die Darstellung aber wesentlich kunstvoller als im Erfurter Druck. - Hayn/Got.

Plinius Secundus, Gaius (Pliny the Elder).
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vives, Juan Luis.
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.

Folio. 18th-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. 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.
