DEL MAINO, GIASONE [JASON DE MAYNO]
Lyon: J. Crespin for J. Giunta, 23 October 1526. This is a rare Lyon edition of a legal textbook by a renowned Italian jurist in a binding decorated with stamps attributed to the Antwerp binder Johannes de Dutche, also known as L'Allemans. The illegitimate son of an Italian nobleman, Del Maino (1435-1519) studied at the University of Pavia, where he subscribed to the views of the great Medieval jurist Bartolus de Saxoferrato on Roman law. A brilliant orator, he taught at the law schools of Pavia, Padua, and Pisa in addition to writing books of commentary on the Justinian Corpus Juris. The present work is a "very clear" [Praeclarissima] guide to causes of action and lawsuits. The attractive binding can be traced to a Flemish workshop. Fogelmark identifies these panels showing John the Evangelist, accompanied by his eagle, writing his gospel on Patmos, as "the Johannes de Dutche panel," noting specimens of it in the Royal Library in Brussels and the State Library in Augsburg. According to Weale, de Dutche was admitted to the bookbinders' guild in Antwerp in 1502, and was still in business there in 1509. His talent is evident in the design of the Saint John panel: the Evangelist sits, legs crossed, beneath a tree, writing on a scroll, while his eagle stands facing him, its legs similarly arranged, holding the saint's inkwell in its beak. We can see tufts of grass, barren limbs, and distant mountains beneath a starry sky. The level of detail is impressive, and the scene is remniscent of those in miniatures from Books of Hours. This volume was once in the collection of the grea … [Click Below for Full Description]

The spine head- and tail-caps were repaired at some point in the past. The leather covers have some stains and scuffs, but are overall in good condition. In the center of each cover is a gold-gilt supra libros with the inscription "COLLEGIUM VITRIACENSE." Inside front cover has small library stamp from Jean Clavreuil in Paris. (See photos.) It is in very good shape considering that in just 9 years it will be 500 years old. Pliny the Elder (Gaius Plinius Secundus) was a Roman scholar, author, naturalist, and natural philosopher who lived in the First Century AD. He was educated in literature, oratory, and law at a young age and then entered military service where he eventually became a commander. He worked under the reign of several Roman emperors including Nero, Vespasian, and Titus. He was a prolific writer being the author of at least 75 books on a wide variety of subjects. His last and most famous work was Naturalis Historia (Natural History) published in 77 AD. It consisted of 37 books in ten volumes that pulled together all that was known about the natural world at the time. In Book One he cited the authors of all of his sources which totaled almost 4,000. Subjects include the arts, astronomy, agriculture, botany, ethnography, geography, mathematics, medicine, metallurgy, mineralogy, pharmacology, physiology, and zoolo … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIANCHINI, Giovanni.
Giunta Lucantonio, Venice. First edition edited by Luca Gaurico, second edition overall (first, 1495), of ?the largest set of astronomical tables produced in the West before modern times? (Chabas & Goldstein, p. viii). ?Bianchini set out to achieve a correction of the Alfonsine Tables ? the standard in Europe for a couple of centuries by the time he wrote ? with those of Ptolemy. He was a great admirer of Ptolemy and critical of the corrupted Ptolemaic and Alfonsine texts then in current use? (Tomash, p. 141). This second edition contains almost twice as much astronomical data as the first. ?Bianchini?s set of auxiliary tables for computing planetary latitudes in the edition of 1526 was not included in the editio princeps of 1495, despite the fact that these tables appear in manuscript copies ? they appear in a manuscript copied by Copernicus? (Goldstein & Chabas, p. 458). Bianchini was ?the first mathematician in the West to use purely decimal tables? (Feingold, p. 20), at the same time as Al-Kashi in Samarkand, and he also used negative numbers and the rule of signs. Bianchini (d. 1469), an astronomer attached to the Ferrara court of the Este, was considered by his disciple Regiomontanus to be the greatest astronomer of his time, and his Tabulae was one of the most sophisticated and widely-disseminated fifteenth-century attempts to correct the Alfonsine Tables, the thirteenth-century planetary tables that were relied upon by all astronomers and navigators well into the sixteenth century.

LIBURNIO NICCOLO
Gregorio de Gregorii, Venice, 1526. 4to. (204x143 mm). [4], 73, [1] leaves. Collation 4 A-H8 I6 K 4, One on the first tangible result of this interest is its legacy to lexicography: the first monolingual dictionary of italian was published in Venice in 1526. Wich could be translated as The three fountains of master Nicolo Liburnio, in three volumes, following the grammar and eloquence of Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio. First edition of this important work, which represents the first history of Italian linguistic tradition. In Le tre the humanist Liburnio illustrates the language and syntax employed by the three Crowns, i.e. Dante Alighieri, Francesco Petrarca, and Giovanni Boccaccio, contrasting the linguistic reform proposed by Gian Giorgio Trissino. The first Book contains the well-known Difesa di Dante. These three great authors (the three fountains, or sources of eloquence) are used as models, in keeping with the position expressed by the lexicographer in one of his previous works. Bound in full contemporary vellum, inked title, red edges.Occasional ligth foxing, Very good copy. In Italian. Hardcover [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

HIERONYMUS SANCTUS.
Valencia, Jorge Costilla, 30 gennaio 1526. In-folio; 10 cc. non numerate, 300 cc. con numerose xilografie lungo il testo e a piena pagina. Legatura spagnola dell'epoca in tutta pelle, decorata a secco con motivi floreali e geometrici ai piatti e al dorso (minimi restauri). Qualche piccolo restauro alle prime carte, occasionali brunite e lievi macchie marginali, sottile segno di tarlo al quaderno E. Buon esemplare. Rarissima seconda edizione della traduzione castigliana delle lettere di San Girolamo e uno dei capolavori della tipografia spagnola, di gusto gotico per le numerose illustrazioni xilografiche che accompagnano il testo. Di grande pregio il frontespizio architettonico, le raffigurazioni a piena pagina di Girolamo penitente (c. +1v) e di Girolamo nello studio (c. +x), le 23 grandi vignette (alcune ripetute), le 7 bordure e le numerose iniziali ornate ed istoriate. La traduzione fu approntata dall'umanista Juan de Molina (ca. 1485-1552), estimatore di Erasmo, poi processato dall'Inquisizione spagnola. Come esplicitato nella dedica alla duchessa di Ganda, Molina cambi• l'ordine delle lettere per agevolare la lettura e questa potrebbe essere la ragione dell'eccentrica collazione (il primo foglio del secondo quaderno porta per errore la segnatura Aii). Solo 8 copie complete di frontespizio sono registrate in istituzioni pubbliche, nessuna in Italia. Palau VI, 408. Bosch I 144. Sim¢n D¡az XV 894.

(A la fin:) Florence, Heredi di Philippo di Giunta, 1526. in-folio. 146ff. ch. Veau brun mod. dans le goût de l'époque, plats ornés de filets à froid. Très rare édition de la première traduction italienne de l'histoire de la guerre entre les Juifs et les Romains qui aboutit à la destruction de Jerusalem. Flavius Josèphe était Juif lui même et fut le témoin oculaire des évènements qu'il décrit. "La participation de l'écrivain aux faits relatés, ainsi que d'autres éléments autobiographiques, confèrent à la narration une grande vivacité; son intérêt est encore rehaussé par les procédés propres à l'hitoriographie: discours, digressions, descriptions, etc ." (Dictionnaire des Œuvres). Belle impression des Junte. Marge supérieure du premier feuillet habilement reparée sans atteinte au texte. Bon exemplaire, bien relié.

Contemporary blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, upper cover with narrow decorative roll with initials ?I.S.?, centre panelled by blind fillets and decorated with fleurons and inner roll, lower cover with wide ornamental border with centre made up of repeated narrow vertical roll, spine with three raised bands, compartments decorated with small tools, remains of clasps and catches, title lettered in ink on upper cover, initial ?T? on fore-edge, sprinkled edges, fragments of medieval manuscript used as binder's waste, (front fly-leaf removed, lower cover rubbed). First edition. A superb copy of one of the most important documents of the Reformation, Erasmus' treatise on ?Free will?, which marked in print his final break with the reformers and his challenge to Luther in particular. Erasmus had been under pressure to write against Luther from many quarters across Europe, including Henry VIII, to whom he sent a manuscript draft of the work and who, on publication, was observed by Vives reading the final text with delight (Epistle 1513, Allen V, 576/4-6). His ?Diatribe? or ?Discourse? defended the freedom of the will, the liberty of man in relationship to God, against the denial of this freedom as advocated by Luther. Erasmus was against what he perceived as Luther's move towards determinism where, if all was the act of God, then mankind could do nothing by his own free will. His work has been de … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLORES JUAN - Lelio Aletiphilo - Lelio Manfredi
Gregorio de Gregori (per Niccolò Garanta), (al colophon) Venezia, 1526. In 8°; cc. 39, (1). Bella bordura al frontespizio, con putti, maschere, uccelli; un capolettera inciso su legno e all'ultima pagina la bella marca tipografica incisa su legno, di Niccolò Garanta, con un delfino nel mare sotto il cielo stellato. Eleganta stampa in corsivo. Legatura ottocentesca in mezza pelle con titolo in oro al dorso.Bell'esemplare marginoso; qualche traccia d'umido che nulla toglie alla sua estetica. Il nome dell'autore è al principiio della lettera di dedica alla "sua signora". Il traduttore dal castigliano al volgare italiano è come appare Lelio Aletiphilo che dedica l'opera a Scipione Atellano.Prima edizione italiana.La materia della novella di Juan de Flores, che nella versione originale spagnola aveva titolo La historia de Grisel y Mirabella, è una fortunata prosecuzione della Fiammetta di Boccaccio e più volte sarà ripresa nella novellistica amorosa del Rinascimento. Si tratta apparentemente dell'amore, in realtà si disquisisce sulla condizione femminile, e la trama si chiude con vendetta delle donne verso colui che le le calunniava.La traduzione dal castigliano è presumibilmente opera di Lelio Manfredi, se in lui si riconosce Lelio Aletiphilo, giurista e valente letterato ferrarese della prima metà del XVI secolo, traduttore per Isabella d'Este. "Secondo Libanori (p. 187), il M. fu dottore in legge; trascorse gran parte della sua vita a viaggiare per l'Europa, apprendendo molte lingue straniere, in particolare lo spagnolo. Mise a profitto le sue conoscenze per la corte di Manto … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cfr. Manzi. Tip. napoletana nel '500: ..."Vaghe sono le notizie che si hanno del nostro Villani. V'è chi lo confonde con l'omonimo fiorentino e lo dice tale; Ma il nostro non ha nulla a che fare con quello. Molto controversa è l'epoca in cui visse; comunque sembra attendibile che sia fiorito in pieno Trecen-to. Della questione si sono occupati Summonte. Mazzella. Sanfelice. Mazocchi. Chioccarelli. Bartoli. Soria. E' pure posto in dubbio che sia stato Villani l'A. delle Chroniche. V'è chi come il P. Agnello Ruggiero. seguito da altri. sostiene che l'A. sia Bartolomeo Caracciolo-Carafa; il Rogadeo. ritiene che le Chroniche siano opera di varii autori e che il Villani le abbia condotte fino ai suoi giorni. preceduto dal Caracciolo e che altro scrittore vi abbia aggiunto le ultime notizie".

LEO AFRICANUS, Johannes.
Adams L482; Gay 258; USTC 1136; Sabin 40044. Well-produced and illustrated first edition of the French translation of a justly celebrated work from the first half of the 16th century, describing the geography of Islamic Africa and Arabia, with the illustrations coloured by a contemporary hand. It was originally written in Arabic around 1526 by the Islamic scholar Hasan ben Muhamed el-Wazzan-ez-Zayyati (1485-1552). His work long remained the principal source of information on the geography of Africa in general and the Sudan in particular. He is thought to have written his description of Africa directly in Italian, although he certainly relied also on Arabic notes, some of which he might have composed while travelling in Northern Africa. Some occasional minor foxing and browning and the last leaf of the second volume reinforced and with a large tear restored. Very good copy.

FABRIZI ALVISE CINZIO.
Venezia, Bernardino e Matteo de i Vitali, 1526. In-folio; 4, 194 cc., assenti le ultime due bianche. Al recto della prima carta il testo iniziale "Alli lettori" Š incorniciato da una larga bordura rinascimentale, la stessa usata per l'Isolario del Bordone. Grandi iniziali ornate e figurate, la prima con probable ritratto dell'autore. Buona legatura di Thompson della fine dell'800 in tutto marocchino nocciola con larga fascia rettangolare decorata in oro con motivi rinascimentali ai piatti, piccoli fregi al dorso, filetti agli orli, merletto interno e tagli dorati. Buon esemplare. Prima ed unica rarissima edizione. Il volume, subito dopo la stampa, venne affidato all?esame dei censori e quindi messo all?indice e mai pi-- ristampato. L'opera, dedicata al Papa Clemente VII, Š composta da 45 capitoli in terza rima ognuno dei quali ha per argomento un proverbio, per un totale di 42.000 versi. In realt... questi 45 capitoli contengono altrettante novelle spesso assai libere e licenziose. La satira nei confronti del Papa, dei frati di San Francesco alla Vigna di Venezia, di varie altre autorit..., e il contenuto, giudicato osceno, delle novelle, causarono censure, sequestri e dissequestri dei volumi in vendita che comunque furono posti all'indice e diventarono rarissimi e molto ricercati da collezionisti e bibliofili gi... dal ?700.

Poliziano [Politianus], Angelo
[Paris: Iodocus Badius Ascensius {Jehan Petit}, [1526/27]. 4to (20.9 cm, 8.2"). [4], CLXXXVIII, CVII–CLXXXIIII [i.e., CCVII–CCLXXXIIII] ff. (pagination extremely erratic; lacking signature B from lib. IX). Attractive, uncommon Petit printing of these widely read, much-esteemed letters by a Florentine humanist of the 15th century and some of his illustrious peers. Born Angelo Ambrogini but commonly known as either Poliziano or Politian[us], the author tutored the children of Lorenzo de' Medici, taught at the University of Florence, and not only translated Latin and Greek classics but also produced significant poems of his own in both Latin and Italian. His writings were read and praised by Erasmus, Pico della Mirandola, Battista Guarini, and many other eminent scholars of the Renaissance — with Erasmus going so far as to make use of Poliziano's Epistolae (as they were originally titled) for his Adagia.    The scholarly commentaries by François Du Bois and Josse Badius Ascensius appear here as shouldernotes, sometimes wrapping entirely around the main body of text, which is printed in Latin and Greek with a variety of woodcut decorative capitals used throughout, including criblé and historiated initials of which one is a particularly nice P featuring Adam and Eve with the Tree of Knowledge. Two letters of Hermolaus Barbarus are given both in the original Greek and in Latin translation by Jacques Toussain. This Petit printing is => extremely uncommon, with WorldCat locating only one institutional holding in the U.S. and one in the U.K. (with the date given as 1527 in the latte … [Click Below for Full Description]
