        Exhortation to the Diligent Studye of Scripture... Translated into Englissh. And an Exposition Into the Seventh Chaptre of the First Pistle to the Corinthians

      At Malborow in the londe of Hesse: By my Hans Luft [= Antwerp, Johan Hillen van Hoochstraten, 1529], MDXXIX. XX daye Junij. [1529]. EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION of Erasmus' "Paraclesis". This first edition, the only English sixteenth century printing to include Luther's Commentary. Title within an elaborate woodcut border, historiated woodcut initial "L" coloured by hand, a second historiated initial "T" uncoloured. 8vo, bound in the original contemporary limp vellum with original deerskin or calf ties. [80] ff.(with the blanks A7-8 and I8 preserved]. A wonderful survival of an extremely rare book, complete, a very pleasing copy with some traces of use, slight mellowing or aging to the paper, an old unobtrusive dampstain towards the end of the volume. EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION PRINTING IN ENGLISH, 1529, OF ONE OF THE CORNERSTONE WORKS IN THE HISTORY OF HUMANISM AND OF THE RENAISSANCE. TO OUR KNOWLEDGE, NO COPIES ARE EXTANT ON THE CONTINENT. Eramus's Paraclesis, or Exhortation, was prefaced to his 1516 edition of the New Testament in Greek with facing Latin translation. Made famous by his call for making the scriptures available and accessible to the unlearned, the Paraclesis also succinctly summarizes Erasmus's "philosophy of Christ. It's translation into English with the inclusion of the Luther commentary serves most probably to suggest that a reformist agenda was shared by each, uniting both men, 'a claim which the Paraclesis with its clarion call for change does not in fact belie; and it serves as a bold political end by yoking together two major antagonists so as to suggest unity between them. Probably for these two reasons, as well as for the fact that Luther was regarded as Europe's most renowned heretic, his commentary on I Corinthians 7 was dropped from all editions after [this] the first." "Whatever else it might be, Paraclesis [AN EXHORTATION... in English] is a cogently argued text in support of the Bible in the vernacular, and it is this particular thrust of the work that must have drawn the early English reformers to it, since they too, like Erasmus, spoke eloquently, and at length - even drawing authority from history - in support of the Bible in English...[i]ndeed, only three years before he translated this Erasmian Exhortation to the diligent study of the Bible, Roye himself had been involved, to some degree at least, with William Tyndale in the English translation of the New Testament, published at Worms....Thomas Wolsey condemned the work at Paul's Cross and ordered all copies of it burnt....Erasmus himself, saw the wisdom of providing the English nation with a Bible that all Christian citizens, rank and status notwithstanding, could read and understand." "And truly I do greatly dissent from those men, which would not that the scripture of Christ should be translated in to all tongues, that it might be read diligently of the private and secular men and women. Other as though Christ had taught such dark and insensible things, that they could scant be understand of a few divines. Or else as though the pith and substance of the Christian religion consisted chiefly in this, that it be not known. Peradventure it were most expedient that the counsels of kings should be kept secret, but Christ would that his counsels and mysteries should be spread abroad as much as is possible. I would desire that all women should read the gospel and Paul's epistles, and I would to God they were translated in to the tongues of all men, so that they might not only be read, and known, of the Scots and Irishmen, but also of the Turks and Saracens. Truly it is one degree to good living, yea the first (I had almost said the chief) to have a little sight in the scripture, though it be but a gross knowledge, and not yet consummate, be it in case that some would laugh at it, yea and that some should err and be deceived. I would to God, the plowman would sing a text of the scripture at his plowbeam, and that the weaver at his loom, with this would drive away the tediousness of time. I would the wayfaring man with this pastime, would express the weariness of his journey. Him do I count a true divine which not with crafty and subtle reasons, but that in heart, countenance, eyes, and life doth teach, to despise riches. And that a Christian ought not to put confidence in the succor, and help of this world: But only whole to hang on heaven. Not to avenge injury. To pray for them that say evil by us. To do good against evil. That all good men should be loved and nourished indifferently, as the members of one body. That evil men if they can not be reformed and brought into a good order ought to be suffered. That they which are despoiled of their goods, and put from their possessions, and mourn in this world, are very blessed and not to be lamented. That death is to be desired of the chasten,[5] since it is nothing else, but a going to immortality. If any man being inspired with the Holy Ghost do preach and teach these and such other things, if any man exhort, entice, and bolden his neighbor unto these things, be ye a very and true divine, though he be a weaver, yea though he dig and delve. But he that accomplisheth and fulfilleth these things in his life and manners, he really is a great doctor. Peradventure another which is not Christian shall more subtly dispute, by what manner the angels understand: howbeit to persuade and exhort, that we may here live pure and immaculate from all vices and iniquities. And to lead an angellic life, that is the office and beauty of a Christian and divine. If any man would object, and say that these are gross, and unsavory things. To him would I none otherwise answer. But that Christ chiefly hath taught these things. And that the Apostles to these have us exhorted. This learning and doctrine be it never so unsavory hath brought us forth so many good Christian, and so thick swarms of faithful martyrs. This unlearned (as they call it) philosophy, hath subdued under her laws the most noble princes so many kingdoms, so many nations . . . ." "Erasmus was perhaps both the most brilliant and most important leader of German Humanism. In 1498 he traveled to England, with money for the trip earned by acting as tutor to three Englishmen from whom he also obtained valuable letters of introduction. During his stay he made the acquaintance at Colet of Oxford, Thomas More, Latimer, and others, and with each he developed a relationship which ripened into lifelong friendship. Colet showed him how to reconcile the ancient faith with humanism by abandoning the scholastic method and devoting himself to a thorough study of the scriptures. Consequently, on his return to the Continent he took up with ardour the study of Greek at Paris and Louvain. The present work was probably translated by William Roye, amanuensis of William Tyndale, and was included in several editions of Tyndale's New Testament. As the book was forbidden, also on account of the inclusion of a Luther commentary, copies were smuggled into England and the larger part of them destroyed. Ref.

That the wi fe separate not hyr silfe fro the m If she separate hir silfe / let hir re maine vnmaryed / or be reconciled vnto hir husbande agayne. And let not the husbande put a waye his wife.To the remnaunte speake I d not the lorde. If eny brother have a wife that beleveth not. If she be c tente to dwelle with him / let him not put hyr a waye. And the wom which hath vnto hyr hus bande and infidele / yf he consente to dwelle with hir let hir not put hem a waye.¶ The Apostle proce deth forthe. For the vnbelevinge husbande is sanctified by the wyfe: And the vnbelevinge wife is sanctified by the husbande. Or elles were your chyldre vnclene: but now ar they pure.But d yf the vnbelevinge depar te / let him departe. A brother or a sister is not in subiection to soche.

Art thou loo sed from a wyfe? seke not a wyfe: But d yf thou take a wyfe / thou haste not sinned / like wise yf a vir gine marye / she hath not synned: Neverthelesse soche shall have tro ble in theyr flesshe: but I faver yow.Bretherne let every man whe rin he is called / ther abyde with God.This saye I bretherne the ty me ys shorte / yt remayneth that they whiche have wifes be as th ough they had none: and that they that wepe be as though they we pt not: and that they that reioyce be as though they reioysed not: And that bye / as though they po ssessed not: And they that vse this worlde / as though they vsed yt not / for the fassion of this worlde goth away.I wolde have you with out ca re. The single m careth for thin ges of the lorde / how he maye ple ase the lorde: but he that hath ma ried careth for th ges of the wor lde / howe he maye please his wife There is difference betwene a vir gyn d a wife. The single wom careth for the thinges of the lorde that she may be pure both in body and also in sprete: but she that ys maried careth for thinges of the worlde / howe she maye please hir husbande.This speake I for your profite and not to tangle yow in a snare: but for that which is honeste and comly vnto you. And that you ma ye quietly cleave vnto God with out distraction or separacion.yf enyman thynke that yt ys vncomly for his virgyne yf she passe the tyme of mariage / and yf so nede requyre / let hym do what he listeth: let them be coupled in matrimony.Neverthelesse he that purposeth surely in his harte havinge no ne de / but hath power over his aw ne wyll: d hath so decreed in his herte / that he wyll kepe hys vyr gen / doth well.So then he that ioyneth hys vyrgen in mariage / doth well And he that ioyneth not hys virgen in mariage / doth better.The wyfe ys bounde vnto the la we so longe as her husbande ly veth. yf her husbande slepe she ys at liberye to mary with whome she wyll / only in the lorde but she ys happyar yf she so abyde in my indgemente.

      Straßburg, Beck. 1529 - Ca. 29,5 x 19,2 cm. [140 (statt) 143] Bl. Gotische Type, 2 Spalten. Mit ca. 400 teils wiederholten Holzschnitten. Modernes Halbpergament unter Verwendung von älterer Papiermakulatur. Drei Blätter (s4, y5 und z6) auf altem Papier faksimiliert. Offenbar vollständig gewaschen, dennoch leicht gebräunt, teils fingerfleckig, teils wasserrandig (erste Bl. stärker). Einige Bl. mit deutlichen verbliebenen Spuren von ausgewaschenen (Tinten-?) flecken, an einer Stelle mit Verlust von 6 Buchstaben (Kopie anbei). Die letzten Blätter mit ausfasernder oberer Ecke. VD16 H 5125. Ritter, Repertoire bibliogr. Nr. 1205 (unter Hortus Sanitatis). Schreiber, Kräuterbücher S. XXVlll. Der „Hortus sanitatis", ein lateinisches Kräuterbuch, wurde erstmals 1491 in Mainz von Jacob Meydenbach gedruckt. Das Werk ist in fünf Abschnitte gegliedert: »De Herbis«, »De Animalibus« (Landtiere), »De Avibus« (Vögel und andere flugfähige Tiere), »De Piscibus« (Wassertiere) und als letzter Teil »De Lapidibus« (Edelsteine, Erze und Mineralien). Hier vorliegend eine von zwei Straßburger Ausgaben des Jahres 1529 (die andere bei Grüninger), welche den Kräuterbuchteil beiseite lassen und lediglich die Teile zwei bis fünf drucken. „Reinhard Beck übernahm 1511 die Pryssche Offizin, und er und Grüninger scheinen die alten, dem letzteren gehörenden Stöcke unter sich geteilt zu haben. Grüninger behielt nur diejenigen, die er zu Neuauflagen von Brunschwigs Destillierbuch brauchte, während Beck mit den übrigen und den Prysschen Bildern seine verschiedenen Hortus-Ausgaben druckte . Wahrscheinlich hatte bei der Teilung der Holzstöcke zwischen Beck und Grüninger ein Abkommen stattgefunden, denn so lange der alte Beck lebte, scheinen sich beide nicht in die Quere gekommen zu sein. Das änderte sich aber, als Balthasar Beck die väterliche Druckerei übernahm. Dieser druckte 1529 den Gart der Gesuntheit (also den zweiten Teil mit den Tieren usw.) mit den Prysschen Stöcken, von denen jedoch mehr als ein Viertel durch Alter zugrunde gegangen war." (Schreiber zitiert nach Ritter). Sehr seltener Straßburger Druck, lediglich zwei Exemplare im Jahrbuch der AP 1950-2016 (1956 und 1983) !

        MANUSCRITO. REGULA FRATRUM REGULArium Ordinis dominini nostri Iesu Christi, ex magna Regula gloriosi patris Benedicti desumpta.

      - [Regra dos Monges da Ordem de Cristo, extraída e baseda na Magna Ordem de S. Bento, manuscrita em pergaminho do final do século xv ou inicio do século xvi] In 4.º 24x17 cm. Com [ii], 48, [vi] fólios. Encadernação da época inteira de pele sobre tábuas de madeira com ferros (florão e cercadura) a ouro em ambas as pastas, cansadas, e com fechos metálicos. Ilustrado com capitulares e algumas passagens redigidas a vermelho. Os últimos 6 fólios sem numeração apresentam uma "tabella temporia litterarii Martyrologii" e um cerimonial com as indicações em português e as orações e cantos em latim. Manuscrito português do final do século XVI, redigido em latim sobre pergaminho, posterior à "desmilitarização" da ordem no ano de 1529, "quando a comunidade viria a sofrer uma reforma imposta pela Coroa, que encarregou (1529) o antigo provincial dos Jerónimos, Frei António de Lisboa, de fazer respeitar a observância da Regra de Calatravra. O Prior e os freires, que se tinham oposto ao projecto, foram colocados em igrejas da Ordem, sendo substituídos por 12 noviços (1532), que se sujeitaram a uma regra reformada, e obrigados a viver como monges de clausura" [Vasconcelos e Sousa, Ordens Religiosas em Portugal das origens a Trento, pag. 499]. Concordante com a leitura do final da introdução epistolar do documento: "omniaque verba qua a nobis latine sunt reddita, consona esse ijsdim qua in vulgari sermone à frate Alfonso Provinciali Jeronimiano, et nuper ex decreto summi Pontifiis Gregorii XIII, confirmata sunt.": 'todas as palavras em latim são traduzidas por nós em linguagem vulgar de acordo com o Irmão Afonso e Provincial da Ordem dos Jerónimos, e confirmadas por decreto do Sumo Pontífice Gregório XIII.' [Papa desde 1572 até à data da sua morte]. Contém, pela mesma mão do texto, notas marginais manuscritas remetendo esta regra resumida para a Grande Regra (Magna Regula) de São Bento. Apresenta manuseamento e notas coevas de diferentes mãos. Contém uma "Forma Absolutionis" manuscrita nas folhas de guarda com cariz apócrifo, e a introdução epistolar "Obsernatissimis fratribus, ordinis domini nostri Iesu Christi", ou dedicação, redigida nas primeiros 2 fólios numerados, contextualizando a razão pela qual foi executado este documento: "Illud etiam Observatione dignu duxi: mi hoc nomime (Prior nimirum) usu fuisse, quod omnibus (quib uis ordine praeficiuntur) communius vidi batur: licit in Conventu Tomeriensi, cum consuetudini cum etiam statutis". ORDEM DE CRISTO: Fundada pela Bula Ad ea ex quibus de João XXIII (14-3-1319) em resultado de uma longa negociação sobre o destino dos bens do Templo (Templários) em Portugal. Tendo-se evitado, em 1312, quando se extinguiu a Ordem do Templo, que os seus bens na Península fossem entregues aos Hospitalários, o monarca português insistiu (1313-1318) no vínculo dos Templários ao serviço do rei à defesa do reino. Talvez influenciado pela solução encontrada em Aragão, com a criação da Ordem de Montesa, optou por suplicar (1318) a criação de uma nova milícia de Cristo, sediada em Castro Marim junto à fronteira marítima com as terras dos mouros. Com recurso às novas soluções técnicas trazidas da Palestina, ergueu-se em Tomar o castelo (1160-1171), por certo pensado para albergar o convento da Ordem. Foi construída uma igreja poligonal, a charola, que seguia de perto a igreja do Santo Sepulcro. Igreja dotada de um selo próprio (1181) e por vezes citada como o mosteiro da Ordem (1209) devia hospedar uma comunidade numerosa, ainda que não se conheça a sua dimensão efectiva. Talvez não andasse longe de 30 professos, como mais tarde sucederia com o convento da Ordem de Cristo. Regra de S. Bento, abreviada, adaptada e acrescentada a partir da Regra Maior, conforme título no terceiro fólio: 'REGULA FRATRUM REGULArium Ordinis dominini nostri Iesu Christi, ex magna Regula gloriosi patris Benedicti desumpta': Regra dos Freires Regulares da Ordem de Nosso Senhor Jesus Cristo resumida da Grande Regra do glorioso padre São Bento [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        In XII Prophetas minores enarratio. Eiusdem in Cantica Canticorum

      Colonia, ex officina Eucharij Ceruicorni, 1529. In-8°; 276 cc. non numerate; carta lievemente brunita. Bella legatura coeva parlante in tutto marocchino nocciola, doppia cornice con triplo filetto ed elementi floreali a secco, losanga centrale di foglie e ramoscelli in oro contenente il titolo sul piatto anteriore e l?immagine della Fortuna con la vela sul retro; pochi trascurabili segni di tarlo, cuffie leggermente consumate. Firma di possesso tardo cinquecentesca (Claudii Dactyli) sul contropiatto posteriore. Esemplare proveniente dalla bilioteca Novacco (ex libris). Significativo esempio di legatura rinascimentale bolognese di gusto veneziano, eseguita probabilmente dal "secondo Maestro alla vignette". De Marinis al nø 3061 bis censisce come bolognese una legatura eseguita con ferri molto simili a quelli qui utilizzati, correggendo Gumuchian che l?aveva illustrata e catalogata (nø 63), come veneziana. L'editore confonde l'autore dei commenti biblici, il monaco di Auxerre fiorito nell'ottavo secolo, con il contemporaneo e omonimo vescovo di Halberstadt, anch'egli esegeta. La firma di possesso sul risguardo posteriore è quella di Claudio Dattilo, sacerdote romano, bibliofilo e corrispondente di Federico Borromeo, cui don• un codice per la neonata Biblioteca Ambrosiana nel 1623. Molti dei suoi libri sono oggi nella Biblioteca Diocesana di Siena. 8°; 276 ll.; lightly browned. Elegant contemporary light-brown morocco (untouched), triple-fillet gilt double panel with blind-tooled floral pieces, gilt central wreath with title on frontal cover and Fortuna with a sail on rear (a few small wormholes, head and tail bands slightly rubbed). 17th-century owner's signature "Claudii Dactyli" on rear pastedown. Excellent copy from the Novacco library (bookplate to front pastedown). Remarkable example of a Bolognese Renaissance binding upon Venetian models, probably made by the "secondo Maestro alla vignette". De Marinis ( n° 3061 bis) records as a Bolognese product a binding with very similar tools, correcting Gumuchian's attribution to the Venetian area (n° 63). The publisher mistook the author of these Biblical commentaries (a monk from Auxerre flourished in the eight century) for a contemporary namesake, the bishop of Halberstadt, who was also a learned exegete. The owner's signature on the rear pastedown belongs to Claudio Dattilo, a Roman prelate, bibliophile and correspondent of Federico Borromeo. In 1623, he presented one of his manuscripts to the newly-established Ambrosiana library. Several books of his are held in the Biblioteca Diocesana of Siena. Hobson-Quaquarelli, Legature bolognesi del Rinascimento. De Marinis, La legatura artistica III, 3060 e 3061 bis. Gumuchian n° 63.

Lower margins throughout browned and with some repairs, some leaves in the middle having some heavy wormtracts in lower margins. Some corners at end restored. In the second work a wormtract in outer margins, but decreasing toward end. Upper right corners with a faint dampstain. ¶ Scarce early editions of these works that only later obtained the name of "Memoires", and they are a major primary source for 15th century European history. Commines is called "the first critical and philosophical historian since classical times" and "the first truly modern writer"."In 1498 (fifteen years after the death of Louis XI of France), Commines's work was completed (first published in 1524 in Paris), and is considered a historical record of immense importance, largely because of its author's cynical and forthright attitude to the events and machinations he had witnessed. His writings reveal many of the less savory aspects of the reign of Louis XI, and Commines related them without apology, insisting that the late king's virtues outweighed his vices. He is regarded as a major primary source for 15th century European history."The Mémoires are divided into "books", the first six of which were written between 1488 and 1494, and relate the course of events from the beginning of Commines' career (1464) up to the death of King Louis. The remaining two books were written between 1497 and 1501 (printed in 1528), and deal with the Italian wars, ending in the death of King Charles VIII of France."Brunet II,189-190. - Adams 2441 and Adams 2443 (but not quite the same collation). - Tchemerzine III, 452-54 (but differences in collations).

"I never thought", observed Luther, "that Emser had been so venomous as I now see he is. He knows better than he writes, which I easely perceive in his New Testament, where he was compelled to make use of my translation. But to preserve Duke Georg's favour he occasionally altered words against his conscience, but that master whom he serves will pay his wages."Adams B, 1780.

        Ein Regiment: wie man sich vor der newen Plage, der Englische Schweyss genant bewaren unnd so man damit ergriffen wirdt, darynn halten sol / durch Euricium Cordum / der Artzney Doctorem und Prof. zu Marpurg.

      Nürnberg, bey, Peypus, 1529, 4, 8 nn. Bll. (l.w.), regliert und rubriziert flex. Pergamenteinband. "Rrapidly fatal viral infectious disease appeared in England in 1485, persisted for the summer months and disappeared as winter approached. This pattern of infection re-appeared in 1508, 1517, 1528, and finally 1551. The epidemic never returned. It had no respect for wealth or rank, and predominantly attacked males between the ages of 15 and 45 years. The incubation period was frighteningly short and the outcome normally fatal. The symptoms of acute respiratory disease and copious sweating were characteristic, providing the name 'the English sweating disease'. It was never in the big league of killer epidemics, such as plague and influenza, but its pockets of instant lethality in communities gave it a special ranking of horror. The infective cause of this disease remained a total mystery until it was compared with Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) in 1994." by Bridson, Eric English 'sweate' (Sudor Anglicus) and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, The British Journal of Biomedical Science, 2001Euricus Cordus (1486-1537) was a Professor of Medicine at the University of Marburg and municipal physician in Bremen this book was the first medical book published from the new University in Marburg. He is also known for his 13 volumes of neo-Latin epigrams, which mark him as one of the genre's most significant representatives in the 16th century."Das "Regiment" des Euricius Cordus ist unter den bekannten Marburger Frühdrucken die älteste medizinische Schrift. Zur Veröffentlichung kam es aus aktuellem Anlaß: Im Sommer 1529 griff der "Englische Schweiß", eine bis dahin nur auf England (und selbst in Schottland und Irland nicht aufgetretene) Epidemie, erstmalig auch auf den europäischen Kontinent Uber. Das Hauptsymptom dieser Krankheit bestand in Übelriechenden Schweißausbrüchen, denen Schüttelfrost und rasch ansteigendes Fieber vorausgingen sie führte in vielen Fällen zum Tode, konnte aber andererseits bei richtiger Therapie rasch zum Abklingen gebracht werden. Als sie sich von Norddeutschland aus immer weiter ausbereitete und Ende August 1529 auch Hessen bedrohte, bat der landgräfliche Kammersekretär Johann Raw von Nordeck Euricius Cordus, eine zur landesweiten Verbreitung bestimmte Schrift Über die Seuche, ihre Vorbeugung und Heilung zu verfassen. Drei Tage später hatte dieser das gewünschte Werk beendet, und nach zwei weiteren Tagen lag auch der Druck fertig vor." Euricius wendet sich an Bürgermeister und Rat der Stadt Marburg "sampt allen vntersassen des Furstenthums zu Hessen." Er beschreibt die Krankheit als "eyn schnei ynwendig vergifftig fieber / aus bösem blut des hertzen vnd vberiger verstoreter feuchtung des vmbringenden hertze(n)schreyns aus bösem vnnd vergifftigtem lufft geursacht." Die allgemeine Vergiftung des Körpers greife so rasch um sich, daß es nicht einmal mehr wie bei der Pest zur Beulenbildung komme. Zur Vorbeugung empfiehlt er bestimmte Arzneien, deren Zusammensetzung er im einzelnen angibt. Wer von der Krankheit ergriffen wird, soll sich unverzüglich zu Bett legen und kräftig schwitzen, jedoch nach Möglichkeit ohne die eher schädlichen Feder- oder Pelzdecken. Im Übrigen soll der Kranke "ym ersten anstoß nit zu sehr erschrecken / Denn wilche ein solch regiment gehalte(n) haben / seind meistlich alle auffgestanden." Dem Marburger Erstdruck vom 4. September 1529 folgten aus Rhodes Offizin in wenigen Tagen zwei Neudrucke. Von ihnen ist der eine auf den 10. September 1529 datiert, der andere dagegen nur mit einer Jahreszahl versehen. Beide haben eine an den obengenannten Kammersekretär Raw von Nordeck gerichtete Nachschrift, in der Euricius u.a. einen inzwischen eingetretenen Heilungserfolg mitteilt. Auch außerhalb Marburgs fand die Schrift lebhaftes Interesse. Insgesamt sind fünf Nachdrucke aus Augsburg, Nürnberg (2), Tübingen und Straßburg bekannt, alle aus dem Jahr 1529.Marburg scheint von dem Englischen Schweiß zunächst verschont geblieben zu sein. Als aber Anfang Oktober 1529 das Religionsgespräch stattfand, fiel die Seuche doch noch in der Stadt ein, so daß die Verhandlungen zwischen Luther und Zwingli überstürzt abgebrochen wurden. Euricius Cordus (eigentlich Heinrich Ritze bzw. Ricius, geb. i486 in Simtshausen bei Wetter, gest. 1535 in Bremen) studierte in Erfurt, wo er 1516 die Magisterwurde erhielt. 1517/18 bekleidete er das Rektorat der Erfurter Marienstiftsschule. Anschließend wandte er sich dem Studium der Medecin zu und promovierte 1521 in Ferrara zum Doctor utr. med. Zwei Jahre später wurde er Stadtarzt in Braunschweig. 1527 folgte er dem Ruf Landgraf Philipps an die neugegründete Universität Marburg und wurde deren erster Medizinprofessor. Nach verschiedenen Mißhelligkeiten mit seinen Kollegen siedelte er 1534 nach Bremen Uber, wo er allerdings nur noch ein Jahr lang als Stadtarzt und Gymnasiallehrer wirkte. -cf.

        Libri de re rustica M Catonis M Terentii Varronis M Iunii Moderati Col

      S.l.|[Paris]: Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade], 1529. Fine. Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade], S.l. [Paris] 1529 et 1524 pour les deux textes suivants, in-folio (20,5x31,5cm), A6 A8 a-t8 v6 x8 et Aa6 †4 A-O8 et Aa10, relié. - First Paris edition of Libri re rustica illustrated a title frontispiece representing a printing stage, and various mythological scenes framing. A handwritten annotation time on the title page. Beautiful initials. This edition contains a glossary of Giorgio Merula, comments from the Old Filippo Beroalda the thirteen books of Columella, and the table of Aldus Manutius in day length and size of shadows, following the teachings of Palladius. Third edition in Josse Bade page for Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, after those of 1515 and 1519. It is followed by a special pagination pamphlet entitled De die natali Censorinus. Repeated frontispiece title page. Initials identical to the previous text; representing a broad band of astronomers, and many other vignettes and astronomical diagrams in-text. A very important card Macrobius representative climatic zones. Binding full rigid vellum vintage cream. Back to six nerves. Title to the contemporary pen the book in the first box and label later in the second. Clasps remains. All red sprinkled edges. Some underlining and marginal notes of the time. Some pale foxing and marginal tears without missing. A corner tear without loss of text miiii sheet of the second text. Particularly fresh copy. The Libri re rustica is a meeting of didactic prose on agriculture and rural life, left by the four great ancient agronomists Cato the Elder, Varro, Columella and Palladius; are approached cultivating fields and gardens, beekeeping, fisheries, rural economy (recipes, medicine), as well as planting work. These texts are traditionally printed in collective editions and adopt a scientific tone and non-literary as could be the Virgil in his Georgics. Thus, from 1472 and until the middle of the eighteenth century, these texts will be published periodically and collectively under the umbrella of Europe's largest printers, first in Italy, the cradle of humanism, then in France and Germany. In the second half of the century, it was rather separate editions, it will then wait for the renewed interest in the second half of the eighteenth for agricultural realities and see these works published again. The second part consists of the famous commentary Dream of Scipio by Macrobius, and seven books of his Saturnalia, philosophical banquet taking place in the eponymous period during which twelve debaters hold forth on the history and Roman philosophy and offer explanation of Virgil texts. These Saturnalia are also an opportunity for a debate on food and their properties. De die natali ("From the day of birth") deals with the birth and human life, days, months, years, religious rites, it is an important wealth of information about the uses of Antiquity: calculation of term birth, zodiac, the Pythagorean theory of music and the planets, and the influence on gestational age. It speaks of life divided into climatic periods or years, and its duration limited to eighty or a hundred years. Censorinus also provides many historical chronological markers. Very nice set of texts quite symbolic of the renewed interest of the Renaissance authors for classic ancient texts or minor, and confirms the vision of a perfect and harmonious Rome. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition parisienne du Libri de re rustica illustrée d'un titre-frontispice représentant une scène d'imprimerie, ainsi que diverses scènes mythologiques en encadrement. Une annotation manuscrite du temps sur la page de titre. Belles lettrines. Cette édition contient le glossaire de Giorgio Merula, les commentaires de Filippo Beroalda l'Ancien sur les treize livres de Columelle, ainsi que la table d'Alde Manuce sur la durée du jour et la taille des ombres portées, suivant les enseignements de Palladius. Troisième édition chez Josse Bade pour Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, après celles de 1515 et 1519. Elle est suivie sous pagination particulière d'un opuscule de Censorin intitulé De die natali. Page de titre-frontispice répétée. Lettrines identiques au texte précédent ; un large bandeau représentant des astronomes, ainsi que plusieurs autres vignettes et schémas astronomiques in-texte. Une très importante carte de Macrobe représentant les zones climatiques.   Reliure en plein vélin rigide crème d'époque. Dos à six nerfs. Titre à la plume contemporain de l'ouvrage dans le premier caisson et étiquette plus tardive dans le second. Restes de fermoirs. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Quelques soulignements et annotations marginales de l'époque. Quelques pâles mouillures et déchirures marginales sans manque. Une déchirure en coin sans perte de texte au feuillet miiii du second texte. Exemplaire particulièrement frais. Le Libri de re rustica est une réunion de textes didactiques en prose sur l'agriculture et la vie à la campagne, laissés par les quatre grands agronomes antiques Caton l'Ancien, Varron, Columelle et Palladius ; y sont abordés la culture des champs et des jardins, l'élevage des abeilles, la pêche, l'économie rurale (recettes de cuisine, de médecine), ainsi que les travaux de plantation. Ces textes sont traditionnellement imprimés dans des éditions collectives et adoptent un ton scientifique et non littéraire comme avait pu le faire Virgile dans ses Géorgiques. Ainsi, dès 1472 et jusque vers le milieu du XVIIIème siècle, ces textes seront régulièrement et collectivement édités sous la coupe des plus grands imprimeurs européens, d'abord en Italie, le berceau de l'humanisme, puis en France et en Allemagne. Dans la deuxième moitié du siècle, on fit plutôt des éditions séparées, il faudra ensuite attendre le regain d'intérêt de la seconde moitié du XVIIIème pour les réalités agricoles et voir ces œuvres éditées à nouveau. La seconde partie est constituée du célèbre Commentaire du Songe de Scipion par Macrobe, ainsi que des sept livres de ses Saturnales, banquet philosophique se déroulant à la période éponyme et durant lequel douze devisants dissertent sur l'histoire et la philosophie romaine, puis proposent une explication des textes de Virgile. Ces Saturnales sont aussi l'occasion d'un débat sur les aliments et leurs propriétés. De die natali (« Du jour de naissance ») traite de la naissance et de la vie de l'homme, des jours, les mois, des années, des rites religieux, il s'agit d'une importante mine d'information concernant les usages de l'Antiquité : calcul du terme de la naissance, zodiaque, la théorie de Pythagore sur la musique et les planètes, et l'influence sur la durée de gestation. Il y est question de la vie divisée en périodes ou années climatériques, et de sa durée limitée à quatre-vingts ou à cent ans au plus. Censorinus fournit aussi de nombreux repères chronologiques historiques. Très bel ensemble de textes tout à fait symbolique du regain d'intérêt des auteurs de la Renaissance pour les textes antiques classiques ou mineurs, et qui confirme la vision d'une Rome idéale et harmonieuse.

        L'Amoroso Conuiuio di Dante, con la additione, & molti suoi notandi, accuratamente reuisto & emendato

      Ff. 124. Nicolo di Aristotile detto Zoppino: Vinegia, 1529. - 1529 Convivio by DANTE Alighieri Philosophy Politics Vernacular Encyclopedia A very rare, 16th-century printing of Dante’s Convivio – a vernacular encyclopedia on philosophy, politics, linguistics, science, and history. Dante Alighieri (c. 1265 – 1321), was a major Italian poet of the Late Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, originally called Comedìa (modern Italian: Commedia) and later christened Divina by Boccaccio, is widely considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature. Convivio is a work written by Dante Alighieri roughly between 1304 and 1307. This unfinished work of Dante consists of four trattati, or "books": a prefatory one, plus three books that each include a canzone (long lyrical poem) and a prose allegorical interpretation or commentary of the poem that goes off in multiple thematic directions.

        Liber historiarum partium Orientis, sive Passagium Terrae Sanctae, Haythono, ordinis Praemonstratensis, authore, scriptus anno redemptoris nostri M. CCC.

      Haguenau: per Iohan Sec[erius, 1529. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to. [19.2 x 14.1 cm]. (71) ff., (1) f. integral blank, including woodcut border on title and 1 large historiated initial. Bound in recent speckled boards, blue edges. Minor edge wear to back and boards, bookplate inside upper cover. Minor browning to quire L, a few contemporary annotations. Internally excellent. First Latin edition and an internally excellent copy of this account of Asia and the Middle East, which along with Polo, formed one of the few eyewitness sources for Asia from the Middle Ages: According to Lach, in its French redaction (Fleur des histories d'Orient), it formed an important source for Mandeville's knowledge about the Mongols and the great Khan, and even into the 16th century, it was a general source for Grynaeus & Huttich for Eastern matters. (Lach I.l.78, 179). The work is by the Cilician Armenian prince, statesman and general Hetoun of Korikos (d. 1308), and contains a wealth of information on Mongol and pre-Ottoman history, as well as eyewitness records of military campaigns in the Holy Land and Near East during the 13th century. Hetoun's work was composed in three books: Book I, a geographical survey of fourteen countries in Asia and the Near East; Book II, an account of pre-Ottoman military history in Central Asia; and the much longer Book III, an extremely detailed history of the Mongol Empire, including the rise of Genghis Khan and the Empire's rapid expansion during the 13th century. Book IV proposes a new crusade against the Ottomans, led by an alliance of Armenian and Mongol armies. As the nephew of Hetoun I, King of Cilician Armenia, Hetoun witnessed and often participated in many of the military, political and diplomatic upheavals described in the present work, such as the Arminian/Mongol victory over Egyptians invading Cilicia (c. 1299). He served as a general in Mongol campaigns, journeyed to the Caucusus, and even claims that he witnessed the inauguration of Mongol Khans. The author also gathered much of his information from his father and uncle, both of whom had traveled throughout the Far East in the mid 13th century. Within Book III (Ch. LXVI), Hetoun categorically states that his Mongol history from the accession of the regent Abaqa Khan (r. 1265-1282) to its conclusion is drawn from his own eyewitness experience. Though the author is identified on the title page as a Premonstratensian monk-and though he is often referred to in later sources as "Frère" or "Abbé"-Hetoun evidently entered the Cypriot order only briefly, during a short political exile from the kingdom of Cilician Armenia, where he was a member of the royal family. Shortly afterward, he was sent to Rome, and then to Poitiers, where he composed the present work in 1307 by dictating it to his secretary, Nicolaus Falcon. The popularity of Hetoun's history is attested by the existence of 15 manuscript copies of the original French text of 1307 and over 30 manuscript copies of the Latin, a translation that was undertaken by Falcon that same year. The printed bibliographic record is murky: it is presumed that the present Latin edition postdates an undated French edition printed in Paris and Lyon during the early 16th century. The present edition was printed five more times during the 16th century, and by 1595, the work had also been translated into German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch. * VD 16 H 870. For the historical circumstances surrounding the work, cf. Burger and Bedrosian, A Lytell Cronicle [critical edition of the 1520 English translation by Richard Pynson]; and Burger, "Cicilian Armenian Métissage and Hetoum's La Fleur des Histoires de la Terre d'Orient," in The Postcolonial Middle Ages (ed. Cohen), pp. 67-83.

      Gourmont Gilles de, 1529. in-4 (245x172 mm.), ff. (8), 80, legatura 700esca in pergamena. Impresso in caratteri romani e con varie parole in greco, illustrato da 116 straordinarie figure in silografia, inoltre su sei fogli sono illustrate le lettere di 13 diversi alfabeti: ebraico, greco, di fantasia e cifrati. Titolo racchiuso in bordura figurata, che include l'impresa tipografica di Tory. Altra grande marca dello stesso stampatore e colophon al recto dell'ultimo foglio. Edizione originale del notissimo trattato di calligrafia e tipografia, in cui con grande arte e fantasia il Tory illustra in forma assai personale le proprie idee e regole sulla grammatica e l'ortografia del francese a inizio XVI secolo, sull'origine e lo sviluppo del carattere romano e, per terminare, analizza la costruzione dei vari alfabeti. G. Tory, incisore, calligrafo, tipografo francese (Bourges ca. 1480-Parigi ca. 1533), studiò a Roma e a Bologna, quindi insegnò a Parigi letteratura e filosofia curando nel contempo edizioni di opere erudite, tra cui il De re aedificatoria di Leon Battista Alberti (1512) e numerosi Libri d'ore. Con la sua opera di illustratore e di calligrafo promosse in Francia il passaggio dalla scrittura gotica ai caratteri rinascimentali per cui disegnò numerosi alfabeti. Il Champfleury, è uno dei più famosi e rari figurati del rinascimento francese. Esemplare assai puro e bello (tre antiche firme di appartenenza sul titolo). PRIMA EDIZIONE del piu celebre libro illustrato del Rinascimento francese, ideato sulla scorta di Pacioli (1509) e Duerer (1525) per celebrare l'origine e lo sviluppo del carattere Romano, analizzandone la costruzione e il disegno. L'opera edivisa in tre parti: la prima concerne il francese, la seconda l'origine del carattere romano e la terza la costruzione delle lettere dei vari alfabeti. Le incisioni nella seconda sezione dimostrano come i rapporti proporzionali nel disegno delle lettere derivino dalle proporzioni umane, idea che fu di Leonardo e Pacioli, ripresa in ambito francese da Jean Perreal. Nella terza sezione Tory fornisce un accurato e minuzioso manuale pratico per la realizzazione delle singole lettere, sulla scorta di analoghi manuali italiani di calligrafia coevi. Edito sei anni dopo la sua stesura, Tory aveva ottenuto il privilegio di stampa sin dal 1526 come riportato in un suo volume del 1527.

      Lyon, (Etienne Gueynard (?), 1529. ____ Ouvrage de la plus grande rareté. Cette édition, imprimée à "L'isle galique dicte Lyonnoise" a été publié la même année qu'une édition parisienne. Allut, le bibliographe de Champier, affirme (p. 235) que "toutes les éditions anciennes sont introuvables. Je n'ai jamais vu celle de Paris 1529 et je ne connais que trois ou quatre exemplaires de celles de Lyon 1529, 1579 et 1648." A la suite, du même : - Cy comence ung petit livre du royaume des Allobroges dit long temps apres Bourgogne ou Vienois. Avec l'antiquité & origine de la tres noble & ancienne cité metropolitaine & primace des Allobroges, Vienne sus le fleuve du Rosne. (20) ff. "Opuscule d'une excessive rareté", nous dit Allut. "Ces deux petits livres appartiennent au même volume et tout exemplaire où ils ne sont pas réunis doit être considéré comme imparfait. La cupidité de certains libraires, a profité de ce que ces pièces sont sans pagination et ont chacune leur signature, pour les dépecer et en faire deux plaquettes qui se vendent séparément à des prix exorbitants." Selon une note ancienne au crayon que porte une page de garde : "L'ex. de la vente Coulon (1845) n° 743 avait été adjugé 285 F., prix énorme, presque trois fois le prix de la Chronique de Nuremberg de la même vente." Relié à la suite, probablement du même : - Les nouvelles venues à Lyon de la réception de nos seigneurs les Dauphins & duc d'Orléans en France. (4) ff. Ecrit à l'occasion de la délivrance des enfants de France, retenus en otages à Madrid. Cet opuscule d'une très grande rareté, à été imprimé avec les mêmes caractères que les ouvrages précédents. Allut estime "vraisemblable" que Champier en soit l'auteur. La première ligne du dernier feuillet de cet opuscule a été rognée par le relieur. Le médecin lyonnais Symphorien Champier (1471-1538) jouissait de son vivant d'une renommée considérable. "Homme extraordinaire, tout à la fois poète, soldat, magistrat, médecin du Duc de Lorraine, théologien, historien, botaniste, véritable image de ce temps de la Renaissance qui produisit des génies si complets et si divers."

      Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade]. First Paris edition of Libri re rustica illustrated a title frontispiece representing a printing stage, and various mythological scenes framing. A handwritten annotation time on the title page. Beautiful initials. This edition contains a glossary of Giorgio Merula, comments from the Old Filippo Beroalda the thirteen books of Columella, and the table of Aldus Manutius in day length and size of shadows, following the teachings of Palladius.Third edition in Josse Bade page for Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, after those of 1515 and 1519. It is followed by a special pagination pamphlet entitled De die natali Censorinus. Repeated frontispiece title page. Initials identical to the previous text; representing a broad band of astronomers, and many other vignettes and astronomical diagrams in-text. A very important card Macrobius representative climatic zones.Binding full rigid vellum vintage cream. Back to six nerves. Title to the contemporary pen the book in the first box and label later in the second. Clasps remains. All red sprinkled edges. Some underlining and marginal notes of the time. Some pale foxing and marginal tears without missing. A corner tear without loss of text miiii sheet of the second text. Particularly fresh copy.The Libri re rustica is a meeting of didactic prose on agriculture and rural life, left by the four great ancient agronomists Cato the Elder, Varro, Columella and Palladius; are approached cultivating fields and gardens, beekeeping, fisheries, rural economy (recipes, medicine), as well as planting work. These texts are traditionally printed in collective editions and adopt a scientific tone and non-literary as could be the Virgil in his Georgics. Thus, from 1472 and until the middle of the eighteenth century, these texts will be published periodically and collectively under the umbrella of Europe's largest printers, first in Italy, the cradle of humanism, then in France and Germany. In the second half of the century, it was rather separate editions, it will then wait for the renewed interest in the second half of the eighteenth for agricultural realities and see these works published again.The second part consists of the famous commentary Dream of Scipio by Macrobius, and seven books of his Saturnalia, philosophical banquet taking place in the eponymous period during which twelve debaters hold forth on the history and Roman philosophy and offer explanation of Virgil texts. These Saturnalia are also an opportunity for a debate on food and their properties.De die natali ("From the day of birth") deals with the birth and human life, days, months, years, religious rites, it is an important wealth of information about the uses of Antiquity: calculation of term birth, zodiac, the Pythagorean theory of music and the planets, and the influence on gestational age. It speaks of life divided into climatic periods or years, and its duration limited to eighty or a hundred years. Censorinus also provides many historical chronological markers.Very nice set of texts quite symbolic of the renewed interest of the Renaissance authors for classic ancient texts or minor, and confirms the vision of a perfect and harmonious Rome.

Bourdigné s'érige ainsi en véritable défenseur des historiens et de leur travail et les présente comme « les vaillants et belliqueux chevaliers qui pour renommée bataillent continuellement contre la mort et font tant par leur prouesse que renommée obtient victoire ». À une époque où l'histoire fait partie des Belles-lettres et n'est pas véritablement reconnue comme une discipline indépendante, il est remarquable que les historiens soient ainsi considérés. La somme de Bourdigné est ainsi riche en détails et apte à éveiller l'intérêt du lecteur. Il est donc notable de constater qu'il emprunte à la manière historienne du Moyen-Âge en proposant un récit sous forme de chroniques : riche en détails romanesques, à la précision historique parfois délaissée mais faisant néanmoins preuve d'une véritable érudition. En effet, il explique dans le prologue que sa décision d'écrire des annales et des chroniques n'est pas anodine, ce biais permettant selon lui d'« avoir expérience des cas advenus au temps passé comme si nous avions été présent quand ils avaient produit leur effet ». Ce livre joue ainsi un rôle charnière dans l'historiographie angevine et plus largement gallicane en liant deux manières historiennes : celle médiévale représentée par les chroniques et celle qui naît à la Renaissance, issue d'une logique humaniste prônant un récit plus linéaire et moins enclin à la subjectivité. Somme sur l'histoire angevine mais aussi, plus généralement, sur l'histoire gallicane, cet ouvrage est célébré par Bertoldi dans ses Angevins célèbres pour ses "maints précieux détails" dont Bourdigné se fait le "témoin oculaire". Très rare édition originale de la toute première histoire du duché d'Anjou.

      Paris (Parisiis), Ex officina Rob. Stephani, 1529. (Colophon at the end of both volumes: 'Excudebat Robertus Stephanus Ann. M.D.XXIX. prid. Cal. Ian'). 8vo. 2 volumes in 1: (XI),(1 blank),224; 54,(6 index),(2 blank) leaves Calf 17 cm (Ref: Renouard p. 30, 1529/23; Schweiger 2,804 & 1139; Brunet 4,722; Fabricius/Ernest 2,413; Graesse 5,345; Ebert 17343) (Details: Back with 5 raised bands. Boards with blindstamped decorated borders. On both titles a printer's mark, depicting an olive tree, right of the trunk a branch, which has just been trimmed, is falling, on the left the motto of the Stephanus family: 'Noli altum sapere, sed time', in English 'Donot be high-minded, but fear'. (Epistola Beati Pauli ad Romanos 11,20) Paper of excellent quality) (Condition: Binding very scuffed, head & tail of the spine chafed, two corners and one band on the back creased. Four names of former owners on the title have been made illegible with ink by one M. A. Doullay. Very small & civilized annotations on the first 14 leaves in old ink) (Note: The Roman civilian administrator Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, 61-112 A.D, published 10 books of literary letters, consisting of short essays, character sketches and sensible observations. The letters paint the high society of the young Roman empire. The ninth book contains Pliny's correspondence with the emperor Trajan. Pliny is famous for his description of the eruption of the Vesuvius on the 24th of August in 79 A.D. He was a nephew of the encyclopaedist Pliny the Elder, who died, observing the eruption from afar, overcome by poisonous fumes. Pliny the Younger held under Trajanus a number of magistracies. In 111 or 112 he became governor of Bithynia. From here he was in constant correspondence with the Emperor. His letters, which were conceived of as artistic productions, are more or less epistolary essays. In the late antiquity and later in the Renaissance the literary letter had a widespread influence. § The second work in this convolute (Liber) 'De viris Illustribus in re militari & in administranda republica', was long time ascribed to Plinius Minor, or Aurelius Victor. This work enjoyed a great popularity among humanists and on schools. Nowadays its name is (edition of Pilchmayr): 'Incerti Auctoris liber de Viris Illustribus Urbis Romae'. It contains more than 75 biographies of famous Romans from Romulus to Pompeius and Sulla. When it was written no one knows, some say first or second century A.D., others the fourth. § The third work is a collection of short biographical sketches of C. Suetonius Tranquillus, ca. 70-140 A.D., one of the most learned men of his age, and a friend of Pliny. It contains 'vitae' of twenty Roman grammarians and sixteen rhetoricians. § The last work is the 'Liber Prodigiorum' or 'De prodigiis' (Book of Prodigies) by the late antique author Julius Obsequens (4th century). It draws on Livy and is a concise account of the wonders and portents that occurred in Rome in Republican times. § This collection of texts is a reissue, with more or less the same title, of the Aldus editions of Pliny of 1508, and with corrections of a few typographical errors of 1518. It was produced by the French scholar/printer Robert Estienne, or Robertus Stephanus, 1503- 1559, who started his career as a publisher in 1527. He produced during his career 8 'editiones principes', a famous 'Thesaurus Linguae Latinae' and an important folio edition of the New Testament. His books were printed in beautiful type. This Plinius of 1529 is a very early example of his activity and his type) (Provenance: On the title only one legible name: 'Ex lib. A. Doullay'. On the front fly leaf in pencil: 'G. Kinard, Donné par M. Jean Monier, Tagne 1910'.

        Practica...gemacht auff Europen, anzufahen in dem nechstkunfftigen Dreyssigsten Jar, Biss auff das Vier und Dreyssigst nachuolgend

      Large woodcut on title. 8 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern black morocco in the Jansenist style by Laurenchet. [Nuremberg: F. Peypus, 1529]. A variant printing of the first edition of Paracelsus' second printed work; all books by this author printed during his lifetime are of the greatest rarity. The printing recorded by Sudhoff -- with the same place and printer -- contains six printed leaves; our copy has eight leaves. In Sudhoff 2, the Practica ends on A4v and the "An die Astronomos" occupies B1r-B2r; in our copy the Practica ends on the top of B2v with the "An die Astronomos" occupying the rest of B2r-B4r. The copy in the Wellcome Library is identical to our example. In this slender work, Paracelsus demonstrates his skill in astrological forecasts. It was a very successful book with at least five printings in 1529 and 1530 (including Nuremberg, Augsburg, and Strasbourg). See Sudhoff for a lengthy description of the woodcut on the title-page. Very good copy. Final leaf with a repaired hole affecting about three words. Sudhoff 2­(variant not known to him). Zinner 1387­(issue not determined). This variant unknown to VD16.

        Von Geschoss, Büchsen, Pulver, Salpeter und Feuerwerck. Wie man solich eygentlich zurichten sol. Was dabei einem Büchsenmeyster und Schützen zuwissen nötig

      Large woodcut on title depicting men loading & charging a cannon (signed "MF"). 24 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern vellum over boards (single small & unimportant wormhole running throughout). Strasbourg: C. Egenolff, 1529. First separate edition of the first monograph on gunpowder and its ingredients and methods of manufacturing them. This is an extremely rare book - as are all of the later 16th-century editions - and this is a very fine and fresh copy. It is still uncertain who actually invented gunpowder, one of the most dramatic and far-reaching technical inventions of all time. All who have examined the text have reached different conclusions regarding its date and authorship: Jähns dated it ca. 1425 and attributed it to Abraham von Memmingen, master-gunner to Duke Friedrich IV of Austria. Thorndike dated it ca. 1422 (see Vol. V, p. 34) and Hassenstein considered it a work of about 1420 and by Conrad von Schöngau. Partington says "it was pieced together from several sources, no doubt of very different dates."-History of Greek Fire and Gunpowder (1960), pp. 152-58. The treatise begins with a series of twelve questions and answers for a master and pupil in which the theory of the explosion of gunpowder is given. Then follows a description of its materials and remarks on ordinary and special gunpowder, particular guns and methods of shooting, and different incendiary compositions. Great importance is given to the correct proportions of gunpowder's ingredients. The work also contains a formula for blessing a gun. The anonymous author discusses the heavy demand for saltpetre as an ingredient of gunpowder. He describes how it can be produced on new walls in damp places or in stables or from latrines which have not been used for a long time, and teaches how to purify saltpetre, a process still used in Lavoisier's days. Finally he describes the manufacture of granulated or "corned" power which was used for handguns and other small arms until the end of the 18th century. The text was first printed early in 1529 at Augsburg as part of the first German language edition of Flavius Vegetius, Vier Bücher der Ritterschaft, and was separately reprinted later in the same year - the present edition - by Christian Egenolff at Strasbourg. Altogether, Egenolff and his heirs issued eight editions of the treatise: in 1529, 1531, 1534, 1550, 1559, 1569, 1582, and 1597. A fine copy with many lower edges uncut, from the library of Denis Duveen. Calligraphic initial at head of title a little cropped. This is the sort of book which would have been read to death by gunners, fireworks manufacturers, and makers of saltpetre and gunpowder. OCLC locates only one copy in America, at Yale, and that copy lacks the splendid title-page. ? Hassenstein, Das Feuerwerkbuch, (1941), p. 600. Jähns, Geschichte der Kriegswissenschaften, I, pp. 392-400 & 591.

        Lettera autografo di Francesco Orsini d' Aragona - Roma 28/4/1529

      28/4/1529. Lettera autografo di Francesco Orsini d' Aragona - Roma 28/4/1529. Un foglio in 8°oblungo (29 x 22 cm.) di 13 righe. Parole, firma autografo. Ben conservata. La famiglia Orsini è una tra le più antiche famiglie principesche e papali dell'aristocrazia romana e italiana, da sempre schierata con la parte guelfa. Vari suoi rappresentanti sono stati protagonisti illustri nella storia italiana del Basso Medioevo e del Rinascimento. Da questa famiglia provengono ben due papi: Niccolò III ovvero Giovanni Gaetano Orsini, Benedetto XIII nato Pietro Francesco Orsini, nonché 34 cardinali. Autentici artefici della politica pontificia nel XIII secolo, durante la cattività avignonese si scontrarono con gli interessi della famiglia Colonna, dando luogo ad una famosa rivalità che ebbe fine solo con la riappacificazione del 1511 voluta da Giulio II della Rovere. I loro titoli e feudi furono numerosi: prefetto di Roma, gonfaloniere della Chiesa, principe assistente al Soglio pontificio, gran connestabile e gran cancelliere del Regno di Napoli, signori di Soriano nel Cimino, località in provincia di Viterbo dove edificarono un castello, duchi di Gravina, duchi di Bracciano e di Amalfi, principi di Vallata, di Solofra, di Roccagorga, di Vicovaro, di Vasanello, di Monterotondo, di Amatrice e di Taranto, conti di Muro Lucano, di Tagliacozzo, di Caserta, di Pitigliano e di Nola. Furono insigniti dell'Ordine del Toson d'oro, dell'Ordine Teutonico, dell'Ordine dello Spirito Santo.
