      Paris: Robert Estienne, 27 January 1530. First Estienne Folio Edition Printer’solive tree device on title-page (Schreiber no. 3) Folio (305 x 202mm), 18th century polished calf, the spine with raised bands gilt ruled and bordered with double gilt fillet lines, red morocco lettering label gilt, the covers with wide gilt fillet rule. [10] 256 ff. A very fine copy, excellently preserved in original state with hinges tight and strong, the calf in beautiful condition, the textblocks clean, crisp and unpressed. This is also a large copy, of significantly greater dimensions than the Schreiber copy. RARE FIRST EDITION IN FINE ANTIQUE CALF OF THE FIRST ESTIENNE FOLIO PRINTING OF PLAUTUS. This was a highly important edition of the comedies of Plautus which was instrumental in the forming of Estienne’s highly influential THESAURUS “in which Estienne had virtually founded modern Latin lexicography” (thus replacing the outdated work of Calepinus). Estienne had failed to persuade any suitable scholar to compile a new Latin dictionary and so prepared for this work by reading and making exhaustive notes on the whole of Terence and Plautus; these notes were then written out and put in alphabetical order to form the basis of the new work. The PLAUTUS appeared a year before the THESAURUS but it is not clear whether this edition had already been projected, or whether it was a by product of the dictionary. ‘Plautus, the great comic dramatist of Ancient Rome lived until about 184 B.C. according to Cicero. He may, in certain respects be regarded as completely original, viz. in his development of the lyrical element in his plays....These lyrical metres of Plautus are wonderfully varied, and the textual critic does well not to attempt to limit the possibilities of original metrical compinations and developments in the Roman comedian. Plautus was a general favourite in the days of republican Rome. Cicero...admired Plautus as elegans, ubanus, ingeniosus, facetus (De offic. i. 29, 104)...(T)hat he found many admirers, even in the Augustian age, Horace himself bears witness. A number of his plays were lost for a period during the Middle Ages, but found in an ancient manuscript discovered in 1429. Aftere the revival of learning Plautus was reinstated, and took rank as one of the great dramatists of antiquity; cf. Shakespeare, HAMLET, I.ii. 420, where Polonius says, “The best actors in the world...Seneca cannot be too heavy nor Plautus too light.” ’ EB, 13. Provenance: 18th century engraved armorial bookplates of Robert Robinson, M.D. and William Adair.

        Viehartznei. Erziehung, Gbrauch, Lernung, Artznei in zûfelligen vnd natürlichen Kranckheyten, aller zahmen, dem menschen gebräuchlichen, vnd geheymen Thier vnd viehs

      Egenolff Woodcuts by Hans Weiditz depict a charming stockyard scene on the title page, and a trio of men with a horse on the first leaf (two of the three men have their eyes gouged out, presumably by a previous owner), plus 16 additional smaller text woodcuts of animals. Later vellum; interior lightly browned, faint water stain on first and last leaves, unobtrusive repair on the title page, otherwise an excellent copy. This rare treatise on veterinary medicine is distinguished for being the first illustrated edition from the 1530 printing. Much of the text is focused on equestrian care and medicine, with information on treating a variety of maladies including equine cancer and gallbladder disease. The latter part of the treatise explains the husbandry and medical treatment of other livestock, including mules, donkeys, oxen, sheep, pigs, dogs and birds, along with a short section on apiculture. A two page index follows the text.& & Although the author's name is unknown, the illustrations were done by Weiditz (1495-1537), a member of an elite group of woodcutters of the German Renaissance, which also included Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein, and Weiditz's teacher, Hans Burgkmair. He is known for his illustrations of secular books, particularly Otto Brunfels' acclaimed Herbarum vivae eicones, in which his innovative, realistic depictions of plant life were greatly influential.& & OCLC locates 3 copies, with only one in America (University of Michigan); Durling, 4600 (1550 ed.); Wellcome, 6603 (1550 ed.)

        Cristo tra i Dottori

      Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1530, priva di firma. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, minimi restauri perfettamente eseguiti al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La figura di Giacomo Franco è assai singolare nell?ambito della grafica italiana del Rinascimento e rappresenta una risorsa fondamentale per lo studio delle antichità classiche, dei temi e dello stile michelangiolesco. Nativo di Venezia si trasferisce a Roma circa nel 1530, ove apprende e si dedica all?arte dell?incisione, sotto la guida di esperti editori quali Antonio Salamanca e Antonio Lafrery; qui si sviluppa il suo interesse per le antichità classiche, che lo porterà a divenire la linea d?unione tra l?editoria romana e veneziana e a sviluppare e perpetuare l?interesse per lo stile classico dell?Alto Rinascimento. Probabilmente è una delle prime incisione del Semoleo, datandosi verso l?inizio del 1530, all?epoca del soggiorno romano, durante il quale egli sentì la forte suggestione di Raffaello e Raimondi, prima di volgersi a Michelangelo. Etching and engraving, 1530 circa, without signature. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the platemark, minor repairs on verso perfectly executed, otherwise in excellent condition. Giacomo Franco represents quite a peculiar figure in the Italian Renaissance graphic world and he is for sure a basic source for the study of classic antiquities and for the style and themes of Michelangelo. Franco was born in Venice and moved to Rome in 1530, where he learned the art of engraving thanks to the publishers Antonio Salamanca and Antonio Lafrery. In Rome, he also developed his interest for antiquities, which then led him to become the junction between the Roman and the Venetian publishing and to develop and perpetuate the interest for the classical style of High Renaissance. Bartsch 9; Rosa D?Amico in Incisori Veneti dal XV al XVIII secolo, p. 47, 179; Bertelà Reed & Wallace, Italian etchers of the Renaissance & Barocque, p. 53. 470x363.

      Bulino, 1530 circa. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, circa 1530. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Bartsch 81. Dim.52x83.
