(SVAVE, PEDER).
(Leipzig, Melchior Lotter ?, 1527). Lille 4to. Nyere helbind i grøn langnarvet maroquin. Forgyldt stregramme samt bred forgyldt rammebort på begge permer. Indvendig forgyldt bordure. Stregforgyldning på kanter. Et ornamentalt forgyldt stempel i midten.Ryggen med forgyldt titel og forgyldt ramme. Bindet udført af Morley - Oxford. (28) blade. På titelbladet det danske rigsvåben i stort træsnit udført af Lucas Cranach d.æ. Enkelte svage brunpletter. Velbevaret. ¶ Det yderst sjældne originaltryk af Svaves indlæg i striden mellem Chr. II og Fr. I. Defensoratet for Chr. II var forfattet af Cornelius Scepper og Svaves indlæg her går på Fr.I's vegne hårdt i rette med dette defensorat. Svave var en af Luthers mest hengivne disciple og fulgte ham til rigsdagen i Worms 1521. "Allersenest fra begyndelsen af 1526 kan S. være trådt i den danske konges tjeneste; thi allerede samme sommer havde han forfattet et svar (Friderici Daniæ Regis ... ad Christierni Patruelis calumnias responsio) på et af Cornelius Scepper forfattet forsvarsskrift for Christian II. Selv om Frederik I også i de følgende år lod S. udarbejde andre lignende skrifter blev det dog i højere grad på anden måde at Frederik I drog nytte af den lærde og dygtige pommerske adelsmands arbejdskraft. Han gjordes således også 1526 til lærer for kongens næstældste søn hertug Hans. Desuden anvendtes S., med titel af sekretær, fra 1528 til diplomatiske sendelser, og det er næppe for meget sagt at han blev den af Frederik I mest benyttede diplomat."(DBL).Lauritz Nielsen, 260 (med årstallet 1527) - Bibl.

GIOVIO (Jovius), Paolo (1483-1552). -
Roma, Francesco Minzio Calvo, 1527. In-4 (19,3 x 13,1 cm.). Legatura del '900 in pelle con copertina del '700 alle armi di Sir William Burrell riapplicata sul piatto superiore. Titolo entro ampia bordura silografica floreale. (44) ff.; lieve alone sulle prime cinque carte. Rara seconda edizione della prima opera del Giovio, interessante per l'ittiologia e la gastronomia (edizione originale: Roma, Calvo, 1524). Nel 1515 Giovio entrò a servizio del cardinale Giulio de' Medici che nel 1523 ascese al soglio pontificio col nome di Clemente VII. La vicinanza al papa fece dello storico ed umanista comasco una personalità molto richiesta alla corte pontificia e quest'opera nasce dalla sua partecipazione a feste e banchetti papali, di cui era diventato un assiduo frequentatore. Vi descrive oltre quarantacinque pesci e crostacei di mare e d'acqua dolce; di ognuno fornisce la descrizione fisica, il luogo di pesca, e in particolare le caratteristiche culinarie, con aneddoti e citazioni di Plino, Galeno, Platina e altri autori. Sul verso della carta D1 c'è un osservazione sui navigatori spagnoli e portoghesi che alle isole Canarie si rifornivano di storioni prima di affrontare l'Oceano in cerca di "nuove terre del mondo non conosciuto". Adams 636. Sander 3169. Ceresoli 288. BING 952. Second edition of this important treatise on ichthyology and gastronomy (first edition: Rome, Calvo, 1524).

BOCCACCIO Giovanni
Heredi di Philippo Giunta. In-8 (mm. 205x128), p. pergamena antica, tit. ms. al dorso, 8 cc.nn. (frontesp., 6 di Indici, l'ultima bianca), 284 cc.num., con due marche tipografiche una al frontespizio e una all'ultima carta. "Rarissima edizione originale della Ventisettana", la più corretta ed importante tra le antiche. Le varie edizioni del Decamerone, a partire dalla prima del 1470, presentavano un testo fortemente corrotto e alterato. Un gruppo di giovani intellettuali e studiosi fiorentini, tra i quali ricordiamo Bernardo di Lorenzo Segni, Antonio degli Alberti, Francesco di Lorenzo Guidetti, Schiatta Bagnesi, Pier Vettori, Antonio Francini ed anche Bartolomeo de Cavalcanti, diedero vita nel 1527 a questa nuova edizione corretta. Prezioso, per questo lavoro, fu un codice del Mannelli e uno di casa Cavalcanti, non rinvenuto da loro, ma utilizzato attraverso un riscontro fatto da Francesco Berni. "E' l'originale 1527 una delle edizioni del Decameron più famigerate per correzione, e detta convenientemente la "Ventisettana". Quei giovani fiorentini che si presero cura di emendare il testo furono ricordati dal Manni.. e le loro fatiche furono coronate da buon successo che sin ai moderni tempi tutte le numerose ristampe dovettero lasciare alla "Ventisettana" il primato". (Gamba,172). "Il existe peu de livres qui aient acquis une valeur d'estime et en meme temps une valeur d'argent proportionnée à celle que depuis plus de deux siècles a conservé ce volume.. Edition correcte et soignée d'un livre dont s'enorgueillit la littérature italienne, elle fut presque à son apparition con … [Click Below for Full Description]

Petits travaux de vers dans les marges de qq. ff. Rare réunion de trois textes capitaux de l'humaniste Guillaume Budé. Le De asse, paru pour la première fois en 1515 est son plus célèbre ouvrage.

THEOPHYLACTUS Archiepiscopus Bulgariae
(Cologne, P. Quentel) 1527. 4to. (6), 362 lvs. Contemp. blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards (darkend, soiled, edges and corners rubbed), spine labels, 1 clasp (of 2). Thus first edition, scarce. According to Hoffmann the commentaries to the letters of Paul as published in translation under the name of Athanasius of Alexandria had appeared as early as 1477 and 1518, Quentel gives 1527 as the first issue under the correct author's name. Similarly, Hieronymus (Griechischer Geist) Erasmus von Rotterdam, in the dedication of an edition of Chrysostomos makes the comment „the commentaries to the letters of Paul which someone ascribed to him (i.e. Athanasius), are clearly the work of Theophylactus" (No. 397). The work was first printed in the original Greek in the 17th century. Theophylactus (1050/60 – post-1107) came from Euboia, enjoyed a high standard of education in Constantinople and became a priest and professor for public speaking (rhetoric); Emperor Michael VII engaged him as tutor to his son. Against his wishes he was appointed Archbishop of Ohrid (Bulgaria) and remained there for 25 years as metropolitan of the Bulgarian church. His commentaries to the four gospels and to Paul's letters belong to the standard works of Byzantine Exegesis. The well-preserved binding has unusual decoration: an outer framework is decorated with roll work showing a drum, a horn and a candelabra, within this the next frame is decorated with single stamp work showing the pomegranate motif, another roll of candelabra follows and a pair of figures. Front and back covers are the same. The EBDB … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHILIP II OF SPAIN, King
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUDÉ, Guillaume (c.1468-1540)
Cologne: Ioannis Soteris, February 1527. Thick 8vo (150 x 100mm). 560pp. Woodcut vignette title depicting scenes for the “Three Graces” of Greek mythology, caption in Greek for “Charites.” Woodcut initial I supported by two putti. Italic type. Printed marginalia. Contemporary stamped pigskin over beveled boards, remnants of metal clasps, gilt-stamped in center with heraldic lozenge (rubbed, spine chipped, not severe). This copy underlined and annotated in Greek and Latin, somewhat heavier at front, show a learned bi-lingual scholar used this copy. Guillaume Budé, famed French scholar and court humanist, was a leading figure of the French Renaissance and eagerly sought to achieve “all-embracing” knowledge, both human and divine. Budé corresponded with some of the most learned men of his time, amongst them Erasmus, who called him the “marvel of France,” and Thomas More. Even more, King Francis I, enjoyed to associate himself with Budé and considered him a valued member of the educated milieu; royal tutors, readers, and literary advisors. The Pandectas consists of annotations and commentary to the first twenty-four books of the “Pandects” or Digest of Justinian. This, Budé’s first great work, appeared at the end of November 1508; it was an outgrowth of his earlier legal studies. Like most of Budé’s works, the prestigious Parisian publisher Badius first published the Pandectas. The term “altera (a)edition” in this copy does not, in this case, mean a second edition; it is a “second batch” of notes, not replacing the first one. Budé’s w … [Click Below for Full Description]

HAECHT GOIDTSENHOVEN, Laurens van.
Landwehr, Emblem and fable books 558; Praz, p. 427; STCN (5 copies); WorldCat (8 other copies). First and only edition of a French adaptation of a Latin emblem book by Laurens van Haecht Goidthoven (Laurentius Haechtanus Goidtsenhovius, 1527-1603). The Latin edition was first published in 1579 at Antwerp by Gerard de Jode (1517-1591), entitled Mikrokosmos, and contained the same 74 engraved emblems as the present edition. It is an edifying work, using the traditional structure of an emblem book: motto, pictura, epigram. Each emblem is accompanied by a French motto above, a citation from the Bible below and a French poem on the facing page. De Jode and Van Haecht enlarged their scope, however, representing a range of curious subjects from Greek and Roman legends, including Arion and the dolphin, Penelope and Odysseus, Cyrus and Tomyris, and many more. The present edition reuses the engraved title-page of Joost van den Vondel's Den gulden winckel der konstlievende Nederlanders: a Dutch adaptation of the Mikrokosmos, which was first published in 1613 by Dirck Petersz. The publisher printed an engraved cartouche with the present French title to be mounted on the Dutch title-page.Leaves S2 and S3 are misbound. Slightly foxed throughout, with some plates rather worn, the outer margins of the first 12 leaves restored and a stain in inner margin of first two leaves. Binding rubbed along the extremities.

GOES (GÓIS), Damião de.
Ad 1: Adams G820; Lach II, book 2, p. 23; Sabin 17688; cf. Gay 2631; ad 2: Graesse IV, p. 685. Ad 1: second edition of Goes's early and very popular work on Ethiopia, including his translation of the exposition on the principles, practices and rituals of the Ethiopian Christians by the Ethiopian emissary Zagazabo, who was sent to Portugal in 1527 to win recognition for the Ethiopian church as a member of the Western Christian community, and an exchange of letters between Manuel, Dawit, João and the Pope concerning the Ethiopians, previously published by Paolo Giovio. As an introduction, Goes added his own history of Portugal's relations with Ethiopia and the search for Prestor John. Although the great Portuguese humanist Damião de Goes (1502-1574) never visited Ethiopia himself, the present work is important because of its uncensored native sources. It contained so many references to rituals and practices considered shocking that it was banned, causing Goes to be dismissed from the Portuguese court. It also includes a reference to Columbus and his voyages.Ad 2: First and only edition of a description of Spain by the Belgian physician Ludovicus Nonnius (1553-1645), well known to today's art world because he had his portrait painted by Peter Paul Rubens. It is an erudite work containing numerous references to authors from classical antiquity.In Ad 2 the bifolium *5.6 is misbound in quire X and X2.5 in X3.4, but still complete. Some leaves slightly browned, two leaves with some thumbing and the head and foot of the title-page of ad 2 slightly damaged, otherwise in very good co … [Click Below for Full Description]
