Great Britain. Laws, statutes, etc
[colophon: Londini: impressus in edibus Thome Bertheleti Small 8vo. 2 parts. I: 150 [i.e., 149], [3] ff.; lacks fol. 3 and part 2.. 1531] Magna Carta remains the most significant single milestone in the common Anglo-American legal tradition. It began the centuries-long process in English law of putting explicit legal limits on royal (and hence, by later extension, governmental) authority and of granting explicit rights to the ruled, a process that has led by circuitous and varying routes to many of the key provisions of the present British and U.S. constitutions. This compact, originally just between the king and his discontented barons, has been invested by time and later interpretation with real and mythological power far beyond its original intent and far beyond any other single document in English law. Appended to Magna Carta here are statutes passed before the reign of Edward III. Like most English law books of the period, this small volume (comfortable for "working use") is printed in black letter, except for the "Lectori" (i.e., "To the Reader") which is in roman. The languages of the text are Latin and Law French; the edition is a close reprinting of Pynson's 1527 edition, this last making sense as Berthelett succeeded Pynson as the royal printer. Provenance: Bookplate of the great royal collector Augustus Frederick (1773–1843), the Duke of Sussex and the ninth child of King George III of England. Early 19th-century English brown calf, recently rebacked; modest blind roll at perimeter of boards, gilt roll on turn-ins.

AGRIPPA Heinrich Cornelius, von Nettesheim (1486-1535)
PARISIIS APUD IOANNEM PETRUM, IN VICO SORBONICO. ANNO MDXXXI, (1531)Esemplare in buone condizioni Legatura coeva in pergamena ITALIANO Legatura coeva in piena pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso; al recto del foglio di guardia anteriore antiche  note manoscritte. 8 pagine non numerate (l'ultima bianca), compreso il bel frontespizio con titolo, ampia marca tipografica a silografia e antiche note manoscritte da più mani; seguono da IX a CLIX carte numerate;  mancanza del'ultima carta bianca. All'interno, poche antiche sottolineature e chiose manoscritte. Seconda edizione, stampata in contemporanea a quelle di Colonia e Anversa, quest'ultima ricalca riga per riga quella di Parigi qui in esame, la prima edizione apparve nel 1530 ad Anversa.  L'opera è un duro attacco sarcastico di Agrippa alla saggezza convenzionale degli eruditi. Nel testo si discute ogni sorta di sistematica comprensione intellettuale e si sostituisce la deduzione logica con una nuova forma di conoscenza occulta.   I vari argomenti trattati sono la musica, l'astrologia, la magia, la caccia, la medicina, la cabala, l'arte e l'architettura e la preparazione del cibo. "This work [De incertitudine] gives emphasis to the tension betweenthe verbum Dei and human knowledge, without providing any basis for the skepticism of which Agrippa has oftenbeen accused. Rather, at the beginning of the era of natural science, it is one of the first testimonials to knowledgeof the limits of human understanding Today Agrippa's importance is considered to lie in the social criticism that isembodied in his works on magic as well … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pürstinger, Berthold]
Augustae Vindelicorum [i.e., Augsburg]: Alexandrum Weissenhorn for Martin Silbereysen, 1531 - An early and important book, and a forerunner of the Catholic Counter Reformation. The book was written by Berthold Pürstinger (1465- 1543), known as the Bishop of Chiemsee from his episcopal see on one of the islands of the Bavarian lake of Chiemsee. Upon his retirement from the bishopric in 1526, Pürstinger devoted more and more of his energies to stemming the tide of Lutheranism via his writings - notably, in his TEWTSCHE THEOLOGEY (Munich, 1528), which was "the first extended Roman Catholic treatise on dogmatics in the German language and the first comprehensive and systematic presentation of the Roman doctrine in opposition to the Reformation. It thus has importance as literature and linguistically, and is directly connected with the beginnings of the Counter-Reformation - Luther's justification by faith alone is repudiated; the power and privileges of the pope are emphasized - " (Schaff-Herzog, IX, p. 360). Permission to publish a text such as this in German was given by the Church, on condition thatPürstinger translate it into Latin. Although aimed at a wider audience, Pürstinger's Latin translation is a much scarcer book, both in institutions and on the market, than its 1528 German predecesor. ABPC shows two copies at auction in the laste 35 years, the most recent, from 1995, bringing £600 (close to $1,000). This is a particularly handsome copy of Pürstinger Latin version, beautifully rubricated by a contemporary hand First edition in Latin of the author's Teutsche Theologe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hauptthema ist der Zusammenstoß der westlich-griechischen Welt mit der östlich-persischen Welt, der in den Perserkriegen gipfelte. Die zahlreichen Anekdoten, Reflexionen, Überlieferungen und Novellen lassen die damals bekannte Welt, ihre Länder und Völker sehr 'plastisch' vor dem Auge des Lesers entstehen. Die "Historien" begründeten Herodots Ruf als "Vater der Geschichtsschreibung". - Der Autor der kleinen Schrift "Das Leben des Homer" ist eigentlich unbekannt: die ersten Zeilen könnten einen Hinweis auf die Urheberschaft Herodots enthalten; heutige Forschung spricht allerdings von einem "Pseudo-Herodot". - Zwei weitere Schriften sind beigefügt: die "Apologia pro Herodoto" von Henry Etienne (auch - wie hier - Heinrich Stephanus genannt) und Auszüge der Geschichtsschrei … [Click Below for Full Description]

1531. [Freiburg in Breisgau, P. Willig], 1531. 8vo (152 x 95mm). [2], 3-55, [1], leaves. Recent boards, covered with old printed paper. The work of Marbodus is the earliest lapidary of the middle ages and also the one which is quoted more widely.

Bound ca. 1830 in crimson polished calf, covers with double gilt fillet surrounding two blind roll-tooled borders, smooth spine gilt with title lettered longitudinally within decorative cartouche, gilt edges, marbled endleaves, signed "Simier" at foot of spine. Notes in Latin in a contemporary French hand on final blank page. *** The first French beauty manual and treatise on products intended for female beautification. This is the second edition and the first Lyonese edition. This collection of recipes for cosmetics, perfumes and herbal treatments relies on easily available foods or plants, many requiring no more than a stove, and occasionally an alambic for distillation. Most of the concoctions are cosmetic: how to dye hair blond or black, make one's nipples firm and pretty, prevent a suntan, remove unwanted hair, warts, pimples, or freckles, whiten one's teeth, sweeten one's breath, brighten one's complexion, smell like roses, clean up ragged fingernails, or abolish wrinkles. Several remedies address common medical complaints - a child's cough, headaches, injuries occasioned by childbirth, and other gynecological issues (the latter written in Latin, to ensure that the readers consult a "clerc" or doctor). The second part is devoted to perfumes, powders, oils & soaps. A table at end provides for easy reference.

Francesco Maria Mazzola detto PARMIGIANINO (Parma 1503 ? Casal Maggiore 1540)
Acquaforte e puntasecca, databile al periodo 1531/40, priva della firma dell?artista. Esemplare nel terzo stato di quattro descritto da Mistrali, prima dei ritocchi a bulino. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?piccola corona? (Briquet 4674), con sottilissimi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L?interesse per la grafica da parte del grandissimo artista inizia durante il suo viaggio a Roma del 1524 dove frequenta Marcantonio Raimondi e la sua bottega, apprendendo la tecnica del maestro bolognese e l?uso dell?acido. A Roma conosce anche Ugo da Carpi da cui apprende la tecnica del chiaroscuro, ideale per la traduzione a stampa dei disegni. Proprio nella capitale il Parmigianino incide San Pietro e San Giovanni guariscono gli infermi (Bartsch 7), suo celebre primo lavoro grafico all? acquaforte derivante da un disegno di Raffaello, che rimane l?unica opera prodotta prima del ritorno a Parma. Tutta la restante produzione grafica risale quindi al periodo successivo al 1531. La scelta dell?artista di dedicarsi personalmente ad una tecnica considerata minore e marginale nasce probabilmente dall?intuizione di poter riprodurre in più esemplari i suoi lavori che attraverso l?uso dell?acquaforte rimanevano molto vicini all?immediatezza del disegno, senza mostrare quella rigidità di traduzione propria dell?incisione al bulino. Il Mazzola si dedicò all?incisione in modo sporadico, per le difficoltà che incontrava nell?usare l?acido; per questo i suoi lavori presentano spesso difetti di morsura, che contraddistinguono gran parte dell?opera grafica di q … [Click Below for Full Description]

ULSTAD, Philipp.
First edition, extremely rare, of this work which served as "a standard authority on the preparation and use of distillates for nearly a century" (DSB). OCLC locates just one copy in America and three in Europe (of which one is incomplete).<br/><br/> Ulstad emphasized the medical efficacy of chemical distillates, thus departing somewhat from conventional medical pharmacology and preparing the way, in part, for the more intimate connections between chemistry and medicine effected by his contemporary Paracelsus and the latter's disciples in the second half of the sixteenth century.<br/><br/> "Ulstad's work was based mainly on the writings attributed to Ramon Lull, Albertus Magnus, Arnald of Villanova, and John of Rupescissa. He was most clearly indebted to John of Rupescissa's doctrine of the fifth essence, namely, the substance that can be extracted from all mundane bodies by ordinary chemical methods and that is the chemically active principle of each body... He maintained that the fifth essence, although not incorruptible, was less corruptible than the four elements and owed its medical value to its ability to regulate the bodily humors and thereby preserve the human body from decay.<br/><br/> "Despite his use of alchemical terminology, Ulstad clearly dissociated himself from the enigmatic aspects of the alchemical tradition in offering his concise and rational account of the preparation of distilled remedies. Concerned with culling from the mediaeval alchemical corpus those techniques and ideas of practical utility, he ensured that they were made available to as large an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Title-page and a few other leaves with a bit of minor brownspotting; overall a very nice and well-preserved copy of this beautifully printed, extremely scarce work. Two quires with loose leaves. Floriated large initial at beginning. [32] ff. (being title-page, 29 ff. text, 1 f. errata, 1 f. blank). ¶ The exceedingly scarce second edition (the "Rome text") of "[t]he most famous of all medical poems" (Garrison & Morton), the poem which gave to the disease syphilis its name, being the most important edition of the work, the first complete edition (with the two lines of the first book printed for the first time - not found in any other contemporary editions of the work), the only authoritative version of the text to appear contemporarily, and by far the rarest edition - with only four known copies at the time of the official bibliography (Baumgartner and Fulton, 1935) (whereas the first edition from the year before, 1530, was known in 30 copies) - our copy also with the final blank leaf (H4), "not preserved in any copy examined" (Baumgartner & Fulton, p. 38)."The edition published at Rome (no. 2) in the following year is a finer piece of printing, AND IT IS EVIDENTLY A MUCH RARER WORK SINCE ONLY FOUR COPIES HAVE BEEN TRACED, WHILE AT LEAST 30 COPIES OF THE VERONA EDITION (i.e. the first edition) ARE KNOWN."

IOVIUS, PAULUS - PAOLO GIOVIO - JOVIO. - [GIOVIO'S FIRST WORK]
Basiliae (Basel), Froben, August 1531. Small 8vo. Very nice later (ab. 1700) full brown morocco, probably Italian, with gilt borders to boards, back richly gilt. Old library-label to lower back, scratch to front-board, white chalk-like staining to back-board. Internally a bit of brownspotting, but overall good condition. Contemporary marginal notes to three pp. Woodcut printer's device to t-p. and last leaf, a few woodcut initials. 144, (6) pp., 1 f. w. printer's device. With the ex-libris of Jeffrey Norton. ¶ Very rare Froben-edition of the first work by the Renaissance-historian Paolo Giovio. All early editions of this work are very rare.<br><br>Giovio was a gifted philosopher, medic and historian. He was born in 1483 in Come (Lombard) and was as controversial a person as he was an author. He died in 1552 in Florence, and this particular edition is thus printed in his lifetime. Three other editions appeared in his lifetime, all printed in Rome, in 1524, 1527, 1528, but the 1531-edition is the only one by as prominent a printer as Froben.<br><br>Giovio was very strategic and succeeded in connecting himself with the Medici-family, especially Giulio Medici, who was later elected Pope (Clement VIII); when he became Pope, Giovio was assigned chambers in the Vatican and in 1528 he was announced Bishop of Nocera. Giovio wrote historical and biographical works and essays; these works are said not to be taken as authorities, but in their entirety and with proper reservation they do have real value, especially because he gives a rich and lively picture of Italy in his own time.

[RODLER, Hieronymus ?] / JOHANN II OF PFALZ-SIMMERN
Simmern: H. Rodler, 1531. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio, [45] leaves (without last blank leaf). With numerous half and full-page woodcuts in text; 11 woodcuts with the red lines delineating perspective; title in printed in red and black. Early ownership inscription of "A. Volpi" on title-page. Modern black morocco in a fine antique style. FIRST EDITION and a fine copy of this elaborately illustrated introduction to linear perspective, a cogent vernacular text which played a key role in disseminating Dürer's projection method throughout Germany. The work effectively turns Dürer's treatise into a model book. Notably, many of the geometrical diagrams (especially those with the red overprinting) owe something to Pelerin-the brilliant illustrations juxtapose complex floor and ceiling patterns, cul-de-sacs in densely built up medieval streets with background landscapes, and church interiors with complex patterns of columns and vaulted ceilings. Some of the designs (D iiiir) are so enthralled to pattern at the expense of architectural reality that they are very likely designs for intarsia, or anticipate the playful fantasies found in model books later in the century. Another design Giiii r shows proto-cubist human figures and heads found in Lautensack's 1564 Kunstebuchlein.In his preface, Rodler tells the reader that Dürer's Underweysung der Messung (1525) was too difficult for most people to understand, although he acknowledges the great merits of the work. Rodler and the Duke, therefore, drew upon both the Underweysung and Dürer's Vier Büc … [Click Below for Full Description]
