         De scripturis antiquis compendiosum opusculum.

      Parisiis, Apud Simonem Colinaeum, 1527, pleine basane de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, reliure habilement restaurée. - in-12 de 27 ff. n.ch. + 12 ff. blancs rajoutés, comportant qq. annotations du XVIIIe siècle ; "First Colines edition of a very useful treatise on the abbreviations employed in Roman inscriptions and other writings. The manuscript of this work, traditionally attributed to Valerius Probus, the foremost Roman grammarian of the first century A.D., was discovered by Poggio in 1417. In view of the great interest in Roman inscriptions shown by humanists and antiquarians, combined with the difficulty of interpreting their mysterious abbreviations, this handbook provided an invaluable aid. First printed at Brescia, 1486, the work was re-issued often, and served as a model for several Renaissance tracts." (Schreiber, Simon de Colines 23).

         Letter Signed to Henry of Valois, Duke of Anjou, later King Henry III of France. Dated 'Madrid a xxiiii. de Novembre 1572'.

      Written by a secretary, Gabriel de Cayas, with his signature. Folded leaf of paper with circular watermark. 30,3 x 21,7 cm. 10 lines in a neat chancellor's hand, with Philip's signature 'Yo El Rey' (I, The King) and 'buen Germano de.v.al' ('de vuestra alteza' = Good Brother of Your Highness). Folded as an envelope with address in the secretary's manuscript, and in a cursive hand 'La Depesche du Conte d'Arenbergue' (The Message of the Count d'Aremberg'). Traces of a wax seal. Some creasing and light browning. (Added: an extensive background dossier (partly in Dutch), including publications on the House of Aremberg.)l King Philip (1527-1598) wishes Henry of Anjou (1551-1589) luck with the birth of the daughter of his older brother, King Charles IX of France (1550-1574). He sends this letter to the Duke through Count Charles of Aremberg (1550-1616), who performed diplomatic services for him. The Duke of Anjou is invited to trust the Count of Aremberg in everything, to believe all he will say on behalf of Philip, and tell the Count whatever Anjou wants to happen. Philip will endeavor to provide Anjou with all the good will he is well-known for.Henry of Anjou was the younger brother of Elisabeth of Valois (1545-1568), Philip's third wife. But the term 'bueno germano' might as well be a formula of courtesy.You should see this letter in the light of the massacre of St. Bartholomews Day, when the leaders of the Protestant party in France were slaughtered, which had taken place three months earlier. Philip was excited about that bloody reckoning, it is the only time that is known of the King, that he laughed! The ambitious Duke of Anjou was regarded by many of his contemporaries as an important instigator of the St. Bartholomews Day Massacre. No doubt Philip was keen to keep Henry of Anjou on his side. The promise with the well-known goodwill refers to bribery.

         Horae in laudem beatissime virginis Marie. Secundum consuetudinem ecclesiae parisiensis

      Simon du Bois for Geoffrey Tory, Paris 1527 - Octavo. 140ff. With twelve woodcut illustrations from thirteen blocks, Tory's "pot cassé" device on title page and colophon, and each page with a four-piece border in twenty-six distinct combinations. The lower blocks of several borders feature coats of arms, including those of the king, François I; his mother, Louise of Savoy; Henri d'Albret, the King of Navarre; and d'Albret's queen, the sister of François. Text in lettre bâtarde, printed in red and black. With Almanac for 1528-1548. Bound in eighteenth-century crimson morocco with triple gilt rules on both panels, gilt turn-ins, flat spine gilt in four compartments, with two green morocco lettering pieces. Few light stains to both panels, some light rubbing to corners and outer hinges. A.e.g. Housed in a modern morocco-backed folding case. With the monogram stamp of noted Prussian collector Karl Ferdinand Friedrich von Nagler on bottom title-page margin. Leather booklabel of Paul Harth on front pastedown. This Book of Hours by Tory is significant on a number of levels, foremost in that it represents his first use of a set of borders, known as "moderne." These differ completely from those used in Tory's Roman Book of Hours, printed two years earlier by Simon de Colines. These borders, which feature detached flora and fauna mainly in outline, complement the outlined woodcuts, which offer another unusual feature of the edition. The format has led to the suggestion that they were intended to be filled in by an illuminator. Of the woodcuts themselves, Tory's use of a two-page spread to depict the Annunciation, which achieves the effect of the angel facing Mary from the opposite page, is an unusual and noteworthy treatment. Much has been written about the king in the Adoration of the Magi and the crow and horse in the Triumph of Death, each figure appearing fully inked rather than in outline: Mortimer notes that "(t)his particular technique represents a departure from the line-for-line transfer of a preliminary drawing into an exploration of the creative possibilities of the woodblock itself." Ultimately, the importance of Tory's French Book of Hours is that it exemplifies a more innovative approach to the incorporation of Italian Renaissance printing techniques in France. Small stain on title and colophon leaves, repaired fore-edge tear to three leaves, otherwise bright and crisp, with strong impressions. (Bohatta 330; Brun 232; Fairfax Murray 279; Lacombe 364; Mortimer 304). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Ein wunderliche weissagung, von dem Bapstum, wie es yhm bis an das ende der welt gehen sol, "ynn figuren odder gemelde begriffen, gefunden zu Nürmberg, ym Cartheuser Kloster, und ist seher alt. Ein vorred Andreas Osianders. Mit gutter verstendtlicher auslegung, durch gelerte lewt, verklert. Wilche, Hans Sachs yn Deudsche reymen gefasset, und darzu gesetzt hat.

      - O.O. u. Dr. (Zwickau, G. Kantz), 1527. 4to. 18 nn. Bl. Mit 30 Holzschnitten nach Erhard Schön. Neuer Pappband. Dritter von vier Drucken im Jahr der Erstausgabe, außerordentlich selten. - In Prosa, Versen und Bildern prangert die scharfe Satire gegen das Papsttum - auf Ersuchen Osianders von Hans Sachs mit Vierzeilern zu jedem Holzschnitt und einem Schlußgedicht versehen - den Verfall des Papsttums an, prophezeit das Ende der Päpste und preist Luthers Kampf. Der Nürnberger Rat hatte sich noch nicht zur lutherischen Lehre bekannt. Er hielt sich an die Beschlüsse des Wormser Reichstages, die den Verkauf protestantischen Schrifttums verboten. Nach Kenntnisnahme dieser Schrift ließ der Rat sie konfiszieren, alle schon zur Frankfurter Buchmesse abgegangenen Exemplare aufkaufen und vernichten. Hans Sachs erhielt Schreibverbot. - Um die Wirkung des Pamphlets zu steigern, schrieb Osiander einleitend, die Illustrationen gingen auf Wandmalereien des 13. Jahrhunderts im Nürnberger Kartäuserkloster zurück. Tatsächlich jedoch lagen der Polemik die 1515 in Bologna erschienenen "Vaticinia Joachimi" zugrunde. Die später auch von Paracelsus gedeuteten Weissagungen "stammten aus den Kreisen der strengen Franciskaner, der Spiritualen . Es herrschte in diesen Gemeinden visionärer Apokalyptiker eine tiefe Abneigung gegen die verweltlichte Kirche und ein leidenschaftlicher Reformdrang . Die Bilder zeigen in drastischen Darstellungen den Verweltlichungsproceß, in welchem der Papst schließlich vom Statthalter Christi zum Antichrist sich verwandelt hat" (Kawerau). Verglichen mit früheren Agitationstexten war es gerade diese Schrift, die "noch weit wuchtiger und eindrucksvoller gegen den römischen Antichrist zu Felde zog" (ebda.). - Unter den Illustrationen auch zwei Stadtansichten von Nürnberg und Worms. - VD 16, W 4645; BM STC, German 673; Keller/Goetze Enr. 27c (nennt irrig 20 Bl.); Muther 1146 (ausführlich zum Bildprogramm). Cf. Kawerau, Hans Sachs 72 ff.; Goedeke II, 417, 15; Kuczynski 2312; Hohenemser 58; Neufforge 359. - Fingerfleckig, etwas gebräunt u. wasserrandig. Titel mit Nummernstempel u. im Falz verstärkt; die untere Ecke fachmännisch ergänzt, ebenso an Bl. E3, dort auch einige Buchstaben sauber ergänzt. Am Ende kleine Wurmspuren im weißen Rand.

      - Large sometime hand-coloured engraved map of Ireland from a 16th-century French folio edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum with some minor neat repairs, not affecting map. Abraham Ortel.was born on April 4th, 1527, in Antwerp. He studied Greek, Latin and mathematics, and at the age of twenty set up as a map colourist and salesman, his sister aiding him. Business prospered and he made friends with the literati of his own and other lands…In 1570 his greatest work appeared - the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, or "Atlas of the Whole World". The publication of this atlas marked an epoch in the history of cartography. It was the first uniformly sized, systematic collection of maps of the countries of the world based only on contemporary knowledge since the day of Ptolemy, and in that sense may be called the first modern atlas…It is said that the great Mercator delayed the publication of his own atlas in order that his younger friend Ortelius might have the honour of being first in the field with a standardised atlas.The Theatrum achieved immediate popularity, four editions being printed in the first year (1570), and then edition followed edition, no less than 42 folio editions being printed between 1570 and 1612.

His early career is that of a businessman and most of his journeys before 1560 are for commercial purposes. In 1564 he completed a "mappemonde", eight-leaved map of the world, which afterwards appeared in reduced form in the Theatrum. The only extant copy of this great map is in the library of the University of Basle (cf. Bernoulli, Ein Karteninkunabelnband, Basle, 1905, p. 5). He also published a two-sheet map of Egypt in 1565, a plan of the Brittenburg castle on the coast of the Netherlands in 1568, an eight-sheet map of Asia in 1567, and a six-sheet map of Spain before the appearance of his atlas. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. In 1573 Ortelius published seventeen supplementary maps under the title Additamentum Theatri Orbis Terrarum. Four more Additamenta were to follow, the last one appearing in 1597.

         Orlandino qual tratta darme e damor per Limerno Pitocco da Mantua composto. Et con gratia novamente impress. 1527

      Rimini: Girolamo Soncino, 1527. 8vo (155x111 mm). LXVI leaves. Collation: A-P4 Q6. Title-page printed in red and black within an elaborated woodcut frame. Half-page woodcut vignette on l. II (showing Berta and Milone), the same used in the 1526 editions of De Gregori and Da Sabbio with some retouching. On the front pastedown bookplate of the booksellers from Barcelona "La Anticuaria Libreria de Llordachs Hermanos". 19th-century stiff vellum, red edges. Title-page soiled, some foxing and browning, ink and damp stains on a few leaves, tear on l. XIX with no loss, round worm hole in the outer margin of the first thirty leaves not affecting the text, pin worm hole in the first twenty leaves that slightly affects the title-page border, the frame of the woodcut on the following page and a few letters. All in all a good copy. On last leaf recto ownership's entry by a certain Eliezer bar Silomo Debauzo (?); at the verso two notes in Hebrew.THE PRESENT is the last edition printed by Soncino in Italy before moving to Constantinople. It is the third of eight editions of Orlandino published in the 16th century. The first edition of the poem was printed in Venice on July 1526 for the bookseller Niccolò Garanta by Gregorio de Gregori, followed a few months later by another edition, also issued for Niccolò Garanta, by the da Sabbio brothers, which also includes a reprint of Folengo's Chaos.Orlandino is a poem in octaves, which narrates the early years of Orlando, fitting into the semi-popular tradition of the 'cantari' dedicated to the childhood of the hero. The poem is basically divided into two sections: the background (Berta and Milone, Orlando's parents, falling in love) occupies six books, while the hero's deeds are narrated in the seventh and final canto. Soncino's edition omits a few stanzas of the seventh canto and the entire eighth canto, which contains an anti-clerical tale on the fake abbot Griffarosto.Orlandino is a harsh satirical work written in a hurry under a mood of indignation, not a long-meditated book such as the Baldus; a book in which the characters profess religious views tinged with Protestantism, reject papal authority, deride the sacrament of confession, and thunder against the sale of indulgences. It is a book apparently composed in three months ("mensibus tribus indignatio istud opus fecit", as stated in the preliminary verses) and dominated by a bitter spirit, which often overwhelms the comic skills of the author (cf. T. Folengo, Orlandino, M. Chiesa, ed., Palermo, 1991).Teofilo Folengo, born Girolamo, was a native of Mantua. He entered the Benedictine order in 1509. In 1525 he was dispensed from his vows and, along with one of his brothers, led a wandering life, before deciding to return to the church. He was re-admitted to the order around 1534, after four years of penance in which he lived as a hermit.In 1526 Folengo published in Venice two profane works, the Orlandino and the Chaos of Triperuno. In 1533 he wrote the religious poem, L'umanità del figlio di Dio, with the intention to redeem his past secular publications. In 1538 he was sent to Sicily near Palermo, together with many others monks from Mantua, eg Benedetto da Mantova, who between 1537 and 1539 composed the famous Beneficio di Cristo. Folengo wrote also a sacred representation, the Atto della Pinta, which was repeatedly staged. In 1542 he returned to the Veneto region. He died on December 9, 1544.His masterpiece remains however the poem Baldus published together with other works in macaronic Latin under the title Opus Merlini Cocaii Poetae Mantuani Macaronicorum (first edition Venice 1517, best edition Toscolano 1521) (cf. Teofilo Folengo nel quinto centenario della nascita, Atti del Convegno, 1991, Florence, 1993).USTC, 830143; Edit 16, CNCE42923 (1 copy at the Biblioteca nazionale Marciana in Venice); OCLC, 249563354 (1 copy at the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin); M.

         Bellissimo disegno a penna di Luca CAMBIASO. 1527 - 1585

      Bellissimo disegno a penna originale di Luca CAMBIASO. 38 x 27. Si consiglia a chi è interessato di venire a vederlo nel nostro negozio di Bologna previo appuntamento perchè il disegno non è presente in negozio. Luca Cambiaso (Moneglia, 18 ottobre 1527 - San Lorenzo de El Escorial, 6 settembre 1585) è stato un pittore italiano. Allievo del padre Giovanni, presto influenzato dagli artisti del fiorente manierismo genovese (primo fra tutti Perin del Vaga), che sviluppa nei suoi modi originali. Luca Cambiaso nasce a Moneglia il 18 ottobre 1527. Il padre è il pittore Giovanni Cambiaso (1495-1579), nato a San Quirico in Val Polcevera, luogo che aveva dovuto abbandonare per sfuggire alle truppe ivi accampate del connestabile di Borbone. Giovanni Cambiaso si era allora spostato a Moneglia, dove nacque Luca. Giovanni diede a Luca i primi insegnamenti pittorici e gli fece copiare i disegni dei maestri del Rinascimento italiano, modellare figure di creta e soprattutto studiare gli affreschi di Perin del Vaga, Domenico Beccafumi e Il Pordenone, da poco eseguiti nel palazzo di Andrea Doria a Fassolo.

         [Libro de Peregrino] Dialogue treselegant intitule le Peregrin, traictant de lhonneste et pudicq amour concilie par pure et sincere vertu, traduict de vulgaire Italien en langue Fra[n]coyse...

      Paris: [Pr. by Nicolas Couteau for] Galliot du Pré, [1527]. 4to (25 cm, 9.8"). [8], 169, [1 (facs.)] ff.; illus. First French edition of Caviceo's best-selling, often translated, and widely influential romance. The author had a complicated life which included dropping out of law school shortly before he could be expelled, becoming a court historian and diplomat in Parma, being banished from that city for seducing a nun (and possibly more than one), voyaging in the Middle East and India, and embroiling himself in various political intrigues before working his way to the post of Vicar General in cities including Rimini, Ravenna, and Florence. His classically inspired novel, first published in 1508 and dedicated to Lucrezia Borgia, is a romance in which Peregrin tells the ghost of Boccaccio all about his globe-spanning quest to satisfy his passion for the fair Genevre — with the plot incorporating the author's own travel experiences.    This first known French edition is uncommon: WorldCat reports => only three U.S. institutional holdings. The translation from the original Italian was done by "Maistre Francoys Dassy" — François Dassi, secretary to Jean d'Albret, King of Navarre, and to Louise Borgia, Duchess of Valentinois. The text is printed in an elegant lettre bâtarde and ornamented with numerous decorative capitals, with the title-page printed in red and black. In addition, this printing features three large woodcuts: Opposite the first page of the first chapter is a split scene showing the lovers as a youthful pair in the distance and as a mature couple in the foreground (with the lady holding her angelic baby in her lap), while another scene shows the hero making preparations for pilgrimage, and the third shows his search throughout "tous les pays habitables" for his lost love. The final leaf, bearing the printer's device, appears here in facsimile.    Binding: 19th-century calf, spine with gilt-stamped title, raised bands, and small circular gilt-stamped decorations in compartments; board edges and turn-ins with gilt rolls and covers framed and panelled in blind with gilt-stamped corner fleurons. All page edges stained red, red silk placemarker present and attached. Binding done by Koehler (with his stamp on front free endpaper).    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Brunet, I, 1701-02; Index aurel. 134.656; Moreau, Editions parisiennes du XVI siecle, III, 1158. This ed. not in Adams or Mortimer, French 16th-Century Books. Bound as above, spine and edges rubbed, sides scuffed. Endpapers with pencilled annotations and with binder's small rubber-stamp as above; title-page with date faintly inked in an early hand. Final leaf (printer's vignette) in facsimile, title-page with lower outer corner with small loss of paper in blank area repaired via excellent leaf-casting, and a similar excellent leaf-cast repair to two inner areas of last text leaf with a few letters supplied in pen and ink facsimile. One leaf with small printing flaw affecting a handful of words without loss of sense; three leaves at back with small semi-circulr areas of worming touching a few letters, also without loss of sense. Pages very clean and type very clear. => A scarce and desirable volume.

         HORAE, use of Rome, in Latin. Horae in laudem beatissime virginis Marie: secundum consuetudinem ecclesie parisiensis

      Paris: Simon Du Bois for Geoffroy Tory, 1527. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. 4to (196 x 139 mm). Collation: a-r8 s4. 140 leaves, bâtarde type, title printed in red and black, initials and headings printed in red throughout, printer's "pot cassé" device (Bernard, no. 9) on title and on verso of last leaf, each page within a four-part woodcut border of flowers, insects, animals and other ornaments, 13 large outline woodcuts, including the Annunciation on two facing pages, ruled in red. 18th-century French marbled calf gilt, edges gilt. Front joint repaired; slight marginal worming, repaired. Provenance: Pierre Bosuiel (bookplate); purchased from Georges Heilbrun, 1968. A FINE COMPLETE COPY OF THE THIRD TORY HOURS, AND THE FIRST APPEARANCE OF THESE ILLUSTRATIONS AND BORDERS. Each of Tory's three sets of Horae woodcuts represents an independent cycle of design. The renewed privilege granted to Tory on 5 September 1526 appears in both this edition (on a1v-a2r) as well as the octavo edition completed in Simon de Colines' shop on the previous day. This edition, however, contains the first use of the illustrations and borders "à la moderne" previously mentioned in the privilege of his 1524/25 Horae, which used the woodcuts of his "à l'antique" set. "Every page is enclosed in a charming border composed, after the manner of illuminated manuscripts, of detached flowers, fruit, foliage, birds, beasts, insects, &c., all in outline, the various portions of the blocks being combined in endless variety throughout. At the foot of each page is seen either a coat-of-arms or a device, personal or otherwise" (Fairfax Murray). Mortimer considered them somewhat less effective in their uncolored state than Tory's earlier "antique" set, and Pollard suggests that both borders and illustrations were intended to be filled in by an illuminator, as the designs are reminiscent of manuscript Hours. Striking among the illustrations is the dramatic use of black for Death's horse (and black crow flying overhead) in the Triumph of Death illustration, as well as the black figure for one of the Kings in the Adoration of the Magi. Each of the first three Tory Horae contain different cuts and borders, the second with colophon dated 21 October 1527 is printed in octavo format in roman type. Brun, p.232; Bohatta 330; Fairfax-Murray French 279; Harvard/Mortimer French 304; Lacombe 364-371. Fact and Fantasy 21.
