Di questa ristampa che mal a proposito suol indicarsi come contraffazione, l’editore del Decamerone, 1761, porge una nota di oltre 450 spropositi E’ l’originale 1527 una delle edizioni del Decameron più famigerate per correzione, e detta comunemente la Ventisettana. Que’ giovani fiorentini, che si presero cura di emendare il testo, ci furono ricordati dal Manni (Istr. Decamer. c. 642), e sono i seguenti: Bermardo di Lorenzo Segni, Antonio di Niccolò degli Alberti, Francesco di Lorenzo Guidetti, Schiatta Bagnesi, Piero Vettori, Antonio Franchini il vecchio, e Baccio OBartolomeo de’ Cavalcanti. Eglino superarono in fatto di diligenze usate da’ loro antecessori Niccolò Dolfin, Aldo Manuzio, Andrea Asolano ec., e le loro fatiche furono coronate di sì buon successo, che sin a’ moderni tempi tutte le numerose ristampe dovettero lasciare alla ventisettana il primato; intendasi quelle che hanno il testo intero, mentre … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBLIA LATINA, N.T. - ERASMUS ROTERODAMUS, (Desiderius), trans. and ed.
Basel, Joh. Froben, 1527. Title with woodcut printer's device and architectural border with 8 decorative woodcut borders in the text, and numerous figured woodcut initials and decorative borders by Urs Graf, Ambrosius Holbein, and Hans Frank, different woodcut printer's device on last leaf verso. 4 leaves, 710, (1) pp.; (28) leaves. Folio. 17th-century calf, back gilt (joints and foot of spine somewhat restored). Old ms. name on title. Basel, Joh. Froben, Febr. 1527. An important document of its time and of the humanistic spirit, present here in its 4th printing. In the early years of the 16th century the demand for the original text of the New Testament began to mount and Erasmus (1467-1536) soon saw the necessity to translate the original Greek text into Latin. This translation was closer to the original Greek than before. In addition Erasmus contributed text notes. They show mistakes that ancient theologians had made during their translation, and revealed misunderstandings that had arisen due to the lack of knowledge of the text copyists. This first text-critical edition of the New Testament was one of the most important foundations for Reformation theology. The commentary "In Novvm Testamentum" with its "Annotationes" were the ferment of theological discussion at that time. It is of great value and was published probably in a total of eight editions as an indepent work, as listed by most of the bibliographers. The first edition of this work appeared in Basel in 1519. Later numerous excerpts and vernacular versions circulated. - Some little wormholes in the last 30 leave … [Click Below for Full Description]

ULPIANUS of Emesa and Valerius HARPOCRATION.
Adams U50 & H69; Ahmanson-Murphy 213; EDIT16, 37751; Renouard, p. 104, no. 4. Second edition of the Greek commentaries and scholia on Demosthenes written by Ulpian of Emesa who taught rhetoric at Antioch in the reign of Constantine (324-337 AD) and wrote a number of declamations and rhetorical works. He is best known as the reputed author of the present scholia on the speeches of the greatest of all ancient Greek orators, Demosthenes (384-322 BC). Demosthenes's orations provide a very interesting insight into the life and culture of Athens during a period when he was attempting to rally the Athenian people against Philippus and Alexander the Great, the rulers of Macedonia, using all his gifts as an orator. The present second edition, printed and published by Aldus Manutius his father-in-law Andrea Torresano d'Asola and his sons, who ran the press until Aldus's son came of age, follows the text of Aldus's first edition. Torresano's presswork is excellent.On leaves 89-119 follows the Dictionarium decem Rhetorum (Lexicon of the ten orators) by Valerius Harpocration of Alexandria. Harpocration's dates are uncertain, but he was probably active in the second century AD. The Dictionarium contains words, including proper names, and phrases, mainly from the orators, in alphabetical order, generally assigned to their sources, with explanations of points of interest or difficulty. Besides stylistic details Harpocration gives valuable notes on architectural, religious, legal, constitutional, social and other antiquities.The title-page and last leaf are slightly browned, the former has … [Click Below for Full Description]

Luca. CAMBIASO
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.

Luca. CAMBIASO
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.

Caviceo, Jacopo.
Paris: [Pr. by Nicolas Couteau for] Galliot du Pr�, [1527]. 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 p … [Click Below for Full Description]

FANTI Sigismondo
Giunta Iacopo. in-folio (325x217 mm), ff. (19), CXXVIII (i.e.126), (1), legatura moderna in marocchino blu (firmata Alain Devauchelle) entro astuccio. Prima edizione nella seconda tiratura (nella prima tiratura il colophon è datato 1526) del celebre lavoro del Fanti che rientra in un genere la cui genesi si può rintracciare nelle medievali sortes apostolorum o sortes prophetarum e l'antecedente più immediato nel Libro de la Sorte di Lorenzo Spirito. Lo schema divinatorio del Fanti si presenta infatti come una complicazione rinascimentale del più semplice schema di Spirito e, mentre le domande di Spirito sono di carattere decisamente più privato, quelle di Fanti vertono soprattutto sulla sfera dell'organizzazione sociale o socio-cosmica. Basato su una possibile scelta di ben 72 quesiti, legati ad una apparato iconografico sontuoso, il lettore viene poi indirizzato ad una delle 12 tavole della "Fortuna", che segnano le direzioni del mondo, quelle fondamentali (Oriente, Occidente, Settentrione e Austro) e quelle intermedie. Il passo successivo è verso le 12 "Case", cioè casate nobiliari selezionate tra le più note dell'Italia di primo Cinquecento (Orsini, Colonna, Medici, Aragona, Gonzaga, Este, Baglioni, Vitelli, Sforza, Feltre, Gritti e Bentivoglio). Qui si trova il rinvio alle 72 "Rote", ogni foglio presenta ai lati personaggi illustri e nel corpo centrale due cerchi molto elaborati. A quello superiore si accede gettando due dadi, a quello inferiore stabilendo l'ora. L'iconografia di questa sezione combina un immaginario estremamente composito con riferimento al mondo "natu … [Click Below for Full Description]

HIGDEN, RANULF
Southwerke: by my Peter Treueris at ye expences of Iohn Reynes boke seller at the sygne of saynt George in Poules chyrchyarde, 16 May 1527. Third Edition. Written in the 1320s, translated to English in 1387, and first printed by Caxton in 1480, this history of the world is the major work of Benedictine monk Ranulf Higden (ca. 1299-1364) of Chester; it is also the first universal history to appear in print. According to DNB, "[Polycronicon] offered to the educated and learned audience of fourteenth-century England a clear and original picture of world history based upon medieval tradition, but with a new interest in antiquity, and with the early history of Britain related as part of the whole." The work was originally divided into seven parts (for the seven days of creation in Genesis), and ended coverage of events in 1342. John Malvern (d. ca. 1414) added a final book covering the years 1348-81; it was translated by William Caxton and added to his 1482 edition. It appears in our volume as "Liber ultimus." Higden's history was enormously popular from its earliest days; DNB notes that there are more than 100 manuscripts of its Latin text surviving, and that ownership of such copies extended beyond the usual cathedrals, monasteries, and universities to smaller churches, members of the nobility, and wealthy merchants. DNB speculates that our printer Peter Treveris (fl. 1525-32) may have been an immigrant, as were many early printers, or he may have come from a Cornish family named Treffrey (sometimes spelled "Treveris"). At his workshop in Southwark, he issued some 30-40 books, … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

ULPIANUS of Emesa and Valerius HARPOCRATION.
Adams U50 & H69; Ahmanson-Murphy 213; EDIT16, 37751; Renouard, p. 104, no. 4. Second edition of the Greek commentaries and scholia on Demosthenes written by Ulpian of Emesa who taught rhetoric at Antioch in the reign of Constantine (324-337 AD) and wrote a number of declamations and rhetorical works. He is best known as the reputed author of the present scholia on the speeches of the greatest of all ancient Greek orators, Demosthenes (384-322 BC). Demosthenes's orations provide a very interesting insight into the life and culture of Athens during a period when he was attempting to rally the Athenian people against Philippus and Alexander the Great, the rulers of Macedonia, using all his gifts as an orator. The present second edition, printed and published by Aldus Manutius his father-in-law Andrea Torresano d'Asola and his sons, who ran the press until Aldus's son came of age, follows the text of Aldus's first edition. Torresano's presswork is excellent.On leaves 89-119 follows the Dictionarium decem Rhetorum (Lexicon of the ten orators) by Valerius Harpocration of Alexandria. Harpocration's dates are uncertain, but he was probably active in the second century AD. The Dictionarium contains words, including proper names, and phrases, mainly from the orators, in alphabetical order, generally assigned to their sources, with explanations of points of interest or difficulty. Besides stylistic details Harpocration gives valuable notes on architectural, religious, legal, constitutional, social and other antiquities.The title-page and last leaf are slightly browned, the former has … [Click Below for Full Description]
