      Basel: Johannes Hervagius, 1532. - Folio (12 x 8 2/8 inches). Woodcut printer's device on title-page and last leaf, LARGE WOODCUT FOLDING MAP (a bit spotted, one or two small holes at creases), woodcut illustrations in the text (early gatherings lightly browned, a few mostly marginal pale stains and one or two spots). Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden bevelled boards, each panel decorated in panels with broad fillets of alternating roll tools of portraits of "Venus" and "Lucretia" with the date 1532, and a heads in medallion roll, filled in with tudor rose and thistle tools, spine in five compartments with four raised bands, with early paper library labels in two, brass clasps and catches (extremities scuffed with some minor loss); preserved in brown morocco backed slipcase and chemise. Provenance: The near contemporary ownership inscriptions of Johannes Craesselius on the title-page, whose name appears in a copy of Rithaymer's "De orbis terrarum situ com- pendium" 1532, now at the University of Graz; manuscript library catalogue designation of the Society of Jesus, Graz dated August 1633 on the title-page; and a later inscription placing the book in their Mathematical library dated 1674 also on the title-page; Frank Sherwin Streeter (1918-2006), his sale, Christie's, Frank S. Streeter Library: Navigation, Pacific Voyages, Cartography, 16th April 2007, lot 273, $50,400 First edition, with the celebrated world map "Typus cosmographicus universalis", with an ANGEL AT EACH POLE WITH A CRANK TO TURN THE WORLD ON ITS AXIS which at the time of the first edition was a visual representation of Copernican theory predating by 11 years publication of his "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium" , the issue with "Asia" printed in large letters and "Tropicus Capricorni" printed above the tropical line. Shirley attributes the cartography of this map to Münster and the border decoration to Holbein, who was working with several Basel publishers at the time. It is of particular interest especially for its "richness of artistic decoration" (Shirley). The work contains accounts of the voyages of Cadamosto, the three voyages of Columbus, Nino, Pinzon, Vespucius, Cabral, and part of the Fourth Decade of Peter Martyr, "also many other pieces which do not relate to America" (Sabin). Begining with Madrignano's latin version of the "Paesi novamente retrovati", and followed by ten accounts, all of which had been previously published except the second, they include Vespucci's letter to Piero Soderinin Gonfalonier of Florence, recording his four voyages which was first published in 1507 as an appendix to Waldseemuller's "Cosmographiae Introductio"; the first publication of a letter from King Manuel of Portugal to Leo X relating the conquest of Malacca and the relief of Goa by Albuquerque; Madrignano's Latin translation of the "Itinerario" of Ludovico di Varthema, printed Rome 1510; Brocardus's description of the Holy Land; the travels of Marco Polo; the travels of Hayton the Armenian; a description of Russia by Matthias of Miechow first published in Cracow in 1517; another description of Russia by Paolo Giovio, first published in Rome 1525; Peter the Martyr's Fourth Decade, fist published in Basel in 1521; and an account of the antiquities of Prussia by Erasmuns Stella, also Basel 1510 (Modern Language Review, volume II, 1907).

        T. LIVII PATAVINI HISTORIARUM AB URBE CONDITA DECADIS QUINTAE LIBRI QUNQUE NUNC PRIMUM EXCUSI. [Together with]: TITI LIVII PATAVINI DECADUM XIIII EPITOMAE. LUCIUS FLORUS. (2 books bound in one volume, as issued).

      Florentiae (Florence]: Bernardi Juntae [Bernardo Giunta], May 1532., 1532.. Good. - Small octavo, 6-1/2 inches high by 4 inches wide. Bound in full early natural vellum titled in holograph on the spine. The covers are slightly warped and stained. The collation is as follows: [1] blank, leaves [1] through 131, and [1] leaf illustrated with an attractive printer's mark; followed by leaves [1] to 52, with an attractive pictorial title page illustrated with a variant printer's mark. (The leaves are numbered on the rectos only, thus the first book has 264 pages and the second book has 104 pages). The colophon is printed on the verso of leaf 131. As issued, pages 42, 44 and 46 are misnumbered as 34, 6, and 38 respectively. There is evidence of early worming affecting the endpapers and pastedowns as well as the inner and outer edges of the last page. The hinges are cracked and the rear endpaper is torn. There is otherwise only occasional minor foxing and faint occasional staining. Good. Mounted on the front pastedown is Leo Samuel Loschi's discreet attractive book label "Ex libri Leonis S. Olschki bibliopolae Veneti". Leo Samuel Olschki founded the Libreria Antiquaria Editrice in Verona, Italy in 1886. The firm moved to its permanent home in Florence in 1897. It is among Italy's most distinguished publishers of important works in the humanities.This book subsequently came into the collection of Arthur Mullin, with his serpent & anchor bookplate mounted on the front pastedown.As noted by Bandino ["De Florentina Juntarum Typographia"], the second work by Lucius Florus does not include a date or identify a printer. However, the Giunta mark with 2 infants holding a lily and with cornucopias at their sides is present on the title page.The Roman historian Titus Livius [Livy] (64 or 59 BC to 17 AD) was responsible for the monumental history of Rome, "Ab Urbe Condita". It is his only surviving work and only a fragment of it exists. The book offered here describes the fifth decade and of that only the first five books remain. These give an account of the Roman war with the Macedonian King Perseus. The corruption of several Roman governors is described as well as the Third Punic War.

      Paris: Galeotus a Prato, 1532 Following his victory in the Battle of Marignano in September, 1515, Francis I of France, barely 21 years of age, negotiated with Pope Leo X to form what would become known as the Concordat of Bologna. It was signed in Rome on August 18, 1516, and confirmed the King's right to tithe, and the Pope's right to collect all income the Catholic Church made in France. But most importantly it would prove to be the ground rules for the limited Reformation in France in the coming years. The present book contains the text of the Concordat, as well as the Pragmatica Sanctio, the Pragmatic Sanction of Bourges (1438), which the Concordat of Bologna was designed to supersede. The Pragmatica Sanctio is glossed by Cosma Guymier. Octavo, 141 x 86 x 18 mm (binding), 138 x 83 x 14 mm (text block). a-r8, 136 ff. Bound in contemporary calf, unlettered.

Provenance: Attractive early manuscript cipher to upper pastedown containing letters K, N, E, T, O, and L; on pastedown, in manuscript, large K with "15" underneath; in manuscript to head margin of title, 17th-c. inscription: Collegij Societatis Jesu Meebliniæ M. B.; in manuscript beneath title, illegible inscription with cipher dated 1549.

A fine wide-margined copy, complete except for a single missing blank. ---- Adams D-1044; Fairfax Murray German Books 152; Bohatta 20; DSB IV, pp. 259-60. FIRST LATIN EDITION, in two parts, of Vier Bücher von menschlicher Proportion first published 1528 in German. Unlike his Italian contemporary, Leonardo da Vinci, who published nothing, Dürer lived and worked in the world of printing and engraving. Dürer's treatise on human proportion was the earliest of the three theoretical works written in his later years. He began formulating mathematical rules for the proportions of the human form soon after his first trip to Venice in 1494-95. For his mathematical formulations he drew upon the works of antiquity as well as the Italian rediscoveries; as for his other theoretical works, his goal was to establish a scientific basis for aesthetics and to provide practical guidelines for draftsmanship. "The book is the synthesis of Dürer's solutions to his self-imposed formal problems; in it he sets forth his formal aesthetic... Dürer's aesthetic rules are based firmly in the laws of optics--indeed, he even designed special mechanical instruments to aid in the measurement of human form. He used the height of the human body as the basic unit of measurement..." (DSB). Book IV is of the greatest interest as it presents for the first time many "new, difficult, and intricate considerations of descriptive spatial geometry... Dürer's chief accomplishment as outlined in the Four Books is that in rendering figures... he first solved the problem of establishing a canon, then considered the transformation of forms within that canon... In so doing he considered the spatial relations of form and the motions of form within space" (DSB). Camerarius' translation popularised the fame of the book throughout Europe. "Without Camerarius' translation, Dürer's writings would not have achieved exceptional dissamination in Europe. Without Camerarius translation, Michelangelo would never have seen Dürer's theory of proportion" (translation from Dürer Katalog, Nürnberg, 1971). - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        The workes of Geffrey Chaucer, newlie printed, with dyvers workes whiche were never in print before: as in the table more playnly dothe appere.]

      London: by Thomas Godfray, 1532 - Folio (312 x 213 mm). Contemporary blind-tooled calf lifted from the original binding and relaid on heavy boards and rebacked to style (a pencilled note dates the restoration 1946), the sides panelled with a stylised wheatsheaf roll and a decorative roll incorporating heads, the fore edges showing the marks where clasps and catches were formerly attached. Housed in a dark brown cloth flat back box. Early ownership inscriptions of John Rappe in French, one in The Romaunt of the Rose (foot of sig. 2E3v) dated 8 June 1583; early ownership inscriptions of Ro: Tirell (=Tyrell) at head of The Canterbury Tales part-title and again at head of The Knight's Tale, and of Thomas Lanham at foot of Troylus and Creseyde part-title; some early underlines and contemporary marginalia throughout; front free endpaper with pencilled note (in the hand of Lord Kenyon?) stating that the book was bought at the sale of Captain Walter Tyrell's books, Christie's 1891; modern bookplate of Robert S. Pirie. A few minor marks or stains, last leaf with paper restoration at upper outer corner and loss of part of the foliation number and just touching one letter of the colophon, a very good copy. 394 (of 397) leaves (lacking A1–3, supplied in good quality facsimile). Black letter, text in double columns. 20 woodcut illustrations from 15 blocks, section-titles within woodcut compartments (McKerrow & Ferguson 19) for "The Romaunt of the Rose," "Troylus and Creseyde," "Boetius de consolatione philosophie," "How Pite is Ded and Beried in a Gentyll Hert," and "The Testament of Love," all with continuous foliation and signatures, QQ3 cancelled as usual and replaced by four leaves incorporating Robert Henryson's Testament of Criseyde. First complete collected edition of Chaucer and the first attempt to collect into a single volume the complete writings of an English author. The Canterbury Tales alone had been first printed by Caxton, first without and then with woodcuts, before Pynson attempted something like a collected edition in three separate publications of c.1526, but Godfray's publication "was the first attempt at a critical edition and for over 200 years provided the standard text of The Canterbury Tales" (Hayward). Only The Canterbury Tales is illustrated: the cuts of the Knight and Squire are copies from Pynson's 1526 edition (Hodnett 2066, 2067), while the remaining 13 were cut for Caxton's 1483 edition (Hodnett 214–236). The editor was William Thynne, clerk of the kitchen and of the green cloth to Henry VIII, and recipient of numerous grants and appointments. Thynne provides the first printed editions of a number of Chaucer's major works in verse and prose, including The Book of the Duchess, The Legend of Good Women, Boece, and The Treatise on the Astrolabe. He also printed a large number of works not by Chaucer, including poems by John Lydgate, Thomas Hoccleve, Richard Roos, and Robert Henryson, giving the volume an additional if accidental value as a poetical miscellany. The introductory materials to the edition are prefaced by an unsigned dedication to Henry VIII by Sir Brian Tuke, the king's secretary, arguing for the poet's pivotal role in the development of the English language. The publisher Thomas Godfray was associated with some of the more radical propagandists of the Tudor revolution and Thynne's edition began a gradual process in the 16th century by which Chaucer was established both as the father of English poetry and claimed for the nation as a proto-Reformer, so that John Foxe the martyrologist would eventually acclaim him as "a right Wycliffian". In its care and attention lavished on primarily secular literature, it also provided the model for the folio editions of the Jacobean dramatists. This is much the most complete copy to have appeared in commerce in the past 40 years. The only other substantially complete copy in that period was the William Morris–Richard Bennett–Michael Tompkinson–Albert May Todd copy, lacking six leaves (A1, A4, Uu

      [colophon: Augspurg: Hainrichen Stayner], 1532. 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). [4], 26 ff. Only edition of an important early and practical military manual that Lienhart Fronsperger felt merited inclusion in his Kriegssbuch (Franckfurt am Mayn, 1573). The threat to Germany from the aggressive advance of the Turkish empire was the precipitating cause for Busteter to compose his German-language treatise on the practical aspects of warfare: mustering, payments, siege, attack, defense, treason, logistics, diplomacy, and so on. The work is addressed to the authorities of Augsburg.    The text is in fraktur and the title-page is illustrated with => a large woodcut of four foot soldiers and a drummer in a forest.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel (“AHA”) at rear.    Searches of WoldCat, NUC, and COPAC locate only one copy in the U.S. (Newberry Library) and one in Britain (British Library).         VD16 B9990; Index Aurel. 128.290; Hohenemser 1423.

        Enchiridion psalmorum, quos sanctae memoriae clarissimus vir Hulderichus Zvinglius ex Ebraica veritate latinitati donavit, & mira claritate illustravit (.).

      - Tiguri, apud Christophorum Froschouer [Zurich, Christoph Froschauer], 1532 Fort volume in-16 (110 x 71 mm), peau de truie sur ais de bois biseautés, dos gothique à 3 nerfs, plats entièrement ornés d'un large décor d'encadrement de filets et motifs végétaux estampés à froid, fermoirs de bronze doré (reliure germanique de l'époque), 226 [i.e. 206] f., (1) f. bl. [sign. a-z, aa-cc8]. Edition originale très rare, comme toutes les éditions des écrits du réformateur alémanique. Cette traduction des psaumes d’Ulrich Zwingli a été publiée à titre posthume et préfacée par son ami et proche collaborateur l’humaniste, philologue et hébraïsant Léo Jud (1482-1542). Fondateur de la liturgie zurichoise, celui-ci eut une influence déterminante dans la diffusion de Zwingli. Ulrich Zwingli (1484-1531) est l’introducteur et le principal artisan de la Réforme en Suisse, qu’il initia à partir du soutien de la ville de Zurich, pour la propager à travers la Confédération. Il trouva une mort prématurée au combat lors de la seconde bataille de Kappel qui opposa Zurichois et cantons catholiques. Il traduisit ce psautier directement de l’hébreu, afin de rester au plus près du sens originel, mais également pour offrir une version plus conforme à l’esprit de la Réforme. L’imprimeur du livre, Christoph Froschauer (1490-1564), a été l’un des premiers à exercer à Zurich. Très entreprenant, il joua également un rôle central dans la diffusion de la pensée zwinglienne. Il a notamment été l’imprimeur de la célèbre "Bible de Zurich" (ou "Bible de Froschauer"). Le texte est imprimé à l’aide d’un grand nombre de polices de caractères, des caractéristiques de corps, graisse et italique très variées, dont des notes en caractères hébraïques. Quelques petites taches d’encre éparses. Quelques annotations d’époque en marge p. 66-68. Ex-libris anciens biffés sur le contreplat et le titre. (Bibles imprimées du XVe au XVIIIe siècle conservées à Paris, n°3290. VD 16 B 3151, Vischer, C-204. I. Zinguer, 'L'hébreu au temps de la Renaissance', p. 40).

        Anfang, Ursprung und herkommen des Thurniers in Teutscher nation

      Simmern: Hieronymus Rodler, 1532. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (319 x 216 mm). 220 leaves. Gothic type. Title with large woodcut initial A and arms of Charles V on verso. One folding woodcut plate of a tournament (between fols. 33 and 34), two full-page and 246 smaller coats-of-arms and 39 half-page woodcuts including repeats. Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, stamped with ornamental rolls forming panels which contain figures of the Evangelists and Virtues. Lacking one clasp and catch, remnants of original leather spine panel; marginal tear in final leaf, some pale dampstaining in fore-margins at beginning and end, some intermittent pale staining and spotting. Provenance: Windhagen Library (17th-century inscription on title); Charles Fairfax Murray (1849-1919, bookplate; sold Christie's 10 December 1917, lot 386); purchased from William H. Schab, 1959. THE FAIRFAX MURRAY COPY OF THE SECOND EDITION, printed by the same printer and using the same cuts as the 1530 first edition. A magnificently printed and illustrated German woodcut book, describing tournaments and festivities. The 36 tournaments held in different German cities are described in the order of the events: arrival, festivities, tournament, celebration of the victor, departure from the town etc. The coats-of-arms are those of the victors of the tournaments and those of the towns where the tournaments were held. The woodcuts are generally attributed to Master H.H., who illustrated another work for Rodler in 1531 (an adaptation of Dürer's Unterweysung der Messung), and was identified by Bonnemann as Hans von Hunsrück, i.e. Johann II, Count Palatine of Simmern, who financed the publication of Ruxner's book at his private press. The folding plate depicts all stages of a tournament. Not in Adams. BM/STC German 761; Bonnemann, Rodler, 4; Brunet 1471; Fairfax Murray German 373 (this copy). Lipperheide Tb 10.

        Herbarum vivae eicones ad naturae imitationem -Novi Herbarii tomus II -De vera herbarum cognitione appendix

      Strasbourg: Johann Schott, 1532. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Two volumes bound in one (the appendix added to vol.II), folio (287 x 188 mm). Vol. I: Title within woodcut allegorical border, 4- and 5-part borders to several pages, woodcut arms of Strasbourg, ornamental and historiated initials, head- and tailpieces, 86 woodcuts of plants by Hans Weiditz; vol. II: Title within woodcut allegorical border, 4- part border on 2 pages, 49 woodcut illustrations by Weiditz, ALL COLORED IN A CONTEMPORARY HAND. 18th-century mottled calf gilt, edges gilt. Rebacked preserving original gilt spine panels, repairs to corners, some slight drying; A4 in volume I bound after b4, lacking blanks b4 and G6 in the first volume and H4 and S6 in the second, small stain in lower margin of first title and first text leaf, some leaves lightly browned, occasional minor staining. Provenance: Johannes Beusler (early ownership inscription on title); Jean Charles Patin (inscription dated 1817 on front flyleaf noting that he is a native of Manneville and currently farming in Bézu-la-Forêt); purchased from William Schatzki, 1971. FINELY COLORED COPY of the second edition of volume I (the first was 1530) and FIRST EDITION OF VOLUME TWO OF THE FIRST BOTANICAL BOOK TO CONTAIN REALISTIC AND ACCURATE ILLUSTRATIONS. Referred to as "the first great mind in modern botany" (Hunt), Brunfels' most revolutionary contribution was his choice of artist accurately to portray these "living portraits of plants." The magnificent woodcuts executed by Weiditz were taken from watercolors drawn directly from nature and delineate botanical details well beyond their known function in the taxonomic literature of the time. The first volume was reprinted to be sold with the second, and this is how many sets are constituted. The appendix at the end of the second volume contains the first published writings of both Jerome Bock and Leonhardt Fuchs. After Brunfels's death, a third volume was published (1536-39) and was illustrated after different artists.

Reliure plein veau marbré (postérieure), dos à cinq nerfs, titre doré sur p. de t., filets et fers dorés, tranches rouges, coupes filetées. Coins et coupes usés, coiffes manquantes.. 10.5/15.5 cm., 4 ff., 276 pp.. Très belle typographie d'une composition et d'une précision stupéfiantes. Jolies lettrines gravées. Dernière page remontée sur onglet. Un carré de papier à été découpé au centre de la page de titre, sans doute pour faire disparaître une marque de propriété manuscrite dont on distingue les contours… * Simon de Colines Devise : Hanc aciem sola retundit virtus. - Virescit vulnere virtus Imprimeur-libraire, libraire juré de l'université de Paris (1522), graveur et fondeur de caractères. - Né entre 1470 et 1480, peut-être en Champagne. Succède à l'imprimeur-libraire Henri Estienne dont il épouse la veuve. De 1522 à 1526, fait travailler avec lui son beau-fils Robert I Estienne. Décédé avant juin 1546. Entre 1520 et 1531, Simon de Colines grave une vingtaine de polices de lettres romaines et italiques directement inspirées par les caractères d’Alde Manuce. Il est le chef de file de la première génération de graveurs de lettres parisiens, c’est probablement lui qui forme la génération suivante, celle d’Augereau et de Garamont. Dans le courant des années 1520, les polices gravées par Simon de Colines commencent ainsi à remplacer ainsi les fontes d’ancien style que les imprimeurs parisiens continuaient à employer.

        EXTRAICT OU RECUEIL DES ISLES NOUVELLEMENT TROUVEES EN LA GRAND MER OCEANE OU TEMPS DU ROY DESPAIGNE FERNAND & ELIZABETH SA FEMME, FAICT PREMIEREMENT EN LATIN PAR PIERRE MARTYR DE MILLAN, & DEPUIS TRANSLATE EN LANGUAIGE FRANCOYS...

      Paris: Simon de Colines, 1532. [8],207 leaves. Small quarto. 18th-century calf, gilt, inner dentelles; rebacked to style, spine gilt with leather label. Bookplates on front pastedown. Some minor soiling. Scattered notations in Spanish in an early hand. Very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. First French edition, and the first collection of voyages printed in the French language, collected by Peter Martyr, the first historian of the Americas. "Peter Martyr (1457-1526) was born near Lake Maggiore. He was a contemporary and friend of Christopher Columbus, Vasco da Gama, Hernan Cortes, Ferdinand Magellan, Sebastian Cabot, and Amerigo Vespucci. Through his friendship with these explorers, as well as from his official position as a member of the Council for the Indies in Spain, he was able to obtain authentic original documents and much valuable information about the discoveries made by the early navigators. His works were held in the highest esteem by his contemporaries and are indispensable as a primary source for the history of the Americas" - Hill. This edition consists of a slightly abridged translation of Peter Martyr's first three Decades (from DE ORBE NOVO, first published in 1516 in Alcala de Henares), and three "narrations," the first being a translation of the first edition (Basel 1521) of Martyr's fourth Decade; the second and third are abridged translations of the Second and Third Letters of Cortes, first published in 1524 at Nuremberg. Cortés' famed Second Letter, dated Oct. 30, 1520, provides a vivid account of the conquest of Mexico, describing the people he encountered and fought en route to the Aztec capital. He relates his conflict with his rival Velazquez and gives a wonderful description of the buildings, institutions, and court at Tenochtitlan. It is here that Cortés provides a definitive name for the country, calling it "New Spain of the Ocean Sea." This letter is also important for making reference to Cortés' "lost" first letter, supposedly composed at Vera Cruz on July 10, 1520. Whether that letter was actually lost or suppressed by the Council of the Indies is unknown, but there is little doubt it once existed. The text is the first major announcement to the world of the discovery of major civilizations in the New World, and as such is a work of surpassing importance. Martyr's work also touches on Cuba and the West Indies. In addition to numerous Spanish notations in an early hand, this copy bears the bookplates of Theodore Bauffremont-Courtenay, Prince Duke of Bauffremont (1793- 1852), Cavalry Colonel, supporter of the Duchesse de Barry and aide to the Duke de Bordeaux; and Prince Constantin Radziwill (1850-1920), founder of Monte Carlo and father of Leon Radziwill, Proust's friend and model for the character Robert de Saint-Loup. A rare work, seldom met with in commerce. Only two copies have appeared at auction in the last sixty years. The DuPont copy realized $48,400 in 1991. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 532/1. CHURCH 64.

        Amorini con struzzo

      1532 - Bulino, 1532 circa, monogrammato in lastra con la lettera B nel dado; a sinistra, RAPHA. VR.IN. e a destra ANT: LAFREII.FORMIS. Secondo stato di quattro o cinque, con l’indirizzo di Lafrery aggiunto. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. La scena raffigura tre putti che giocano con uno struzzo. L’incisione è la seconda di una una serie di quattro matrici, incise intorno al 1532 e basate sugli arazzi, di invenzione di Raffaello, tessuti in Francia su richiesta di Leone X (1475 – 1521), e destinati allo zoccolo della Sala di Costantino. Gli arazzi sono attribuiti dal Vasari a Giovanni da Udine. Le matrici subirono molti ritocchi nelle edizioni successive curate da Orlandi e De Rossi, e nel 1823 furono censurate per volere di Leone XII (1760 – 1829). Bella impressione, ricca di toni e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, completa oltre la linea del margine, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1532 circa, signed on plate with monogram B in the die, at right. Lettered along bottom 'Rapha ur in / Ant Lafrerii formis. Second state, of three four or five, with the Antonio Lafreri's publisher's address added. The scene shows three putti standing before a large garland, the one in the middle rides an ostrich, the one at the right pull a feather from its tail and one below crouches holding its leg. The plate is the second from a series of four, based on the tapestries, in turn based on Raphael’s drawings, woven in France for pope Leo X (1475-1521). Vasari attribues the tapestries to Giovanni da Udine. The plates were very retouched in the subsequent editions published by Orlandi and De Rossi, and in 1823 were censored at the behest of Pope Leo XII (1760-1829). Beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, complete beyond the margin line, in excellent condition. Raphael Invenit, p. 137, no. II.2; Bartsch XV.208.33; Passavant II.259.2 Dimensioni 284 207mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Eckfehlstelle, dadurch sehr kleiner Textverlust, Vor- und Nachsatz, Titelei u. S. etw. fleckig, Bll. teilw. leicht wasserrandig. -- Die Constitutio Criminalis Carolina (CCC) oder Carolina von 1532 gilt heute als erstes allgemeines deutsches Strafgesetzbuch. In der Übersetzung aus dem lateinischen Original ins Deutsche heißt sie Peinliche Gerichts- oder Peinliche Halsgerichtsordnung Kaiser Karls V.. Peinlich bezieht sich hierbei auf das lateinische poena für Strafe und bezeichnet Leibes- und Lebensstrafen. Auf sie stützte sich die Methode der so genannten peinlichen Befragung (Folter) bei der Erwirkung von Geständnissen. Die Einführung der Carolina schuf die Voraussetzung für die massenhafte Durchführung von Hexenprozessen zwischen 1580 und 1680 in Deutschland. Unschuldige Menschen gerieten in die Fänge eines erbarmungslosen Vernichtungsapparates, aus dem es in der Regel kein Entkommen gab. Jede und jeder musste befürchten, Opfer zu werden. -- Wir akzeptieren VISA und MASTERCARD. Credit cards accepted. ---

        De Partu Hominis et quae circa ipsum accidunt.

      Frankfurt: Christian Egenolph, 1532. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. De Partu Hominis et quae circa ipsum accidunt. Frankfurt: Christian Egenolph, 19 October 1532. 80 unnumbered leaves. Signatures: A-K8. Colophon on K8r. Woodcut illustration on title-page, woodcut illustrations in text. [Bound with] II. BARBARO, Francesco. De re uxoria libri duo. Hagenau: Johann Setzer (heirs), 1533. 52 unnumbered leaves. Signatures: A-E8 F4 G8. Colophon and printer's woodcut device on G8r. Two works in one volume. 8vo (152 x 95 mm). Contemporary blind-stamped polished calf, spine with 5 raised bands (expertly resored, ties lacking). Internally quite fresh and only very little browned, light dampstain to lower blank margin of some leaves. The woodcuts in first work with roman numbering in ink, a few short annotations elswere. Provenance: Etienne Tarnier, presentation copy to François Herrgott*, Jean Blondelet library. A fine, well margined copy. ----I. VD16 R2861; cf. Heirs of Hippocrates 200 (1551 edition). First edition in Latin of Der swangern Frauwen und hebammen Rosegarten (first published in 1513). This extremely popular book on midwifery, which treats obstetrics as a separate subject in its own right, survived 40 editions. Eucharius Roesslin's son, also called Eucharius and also the town physician of Frankfurt, was responsible for this Latin translation. His father was responsibility for the midwives, therefore he wrote in the vernacular as midwives were unlikely to be conversant with Latin. The 21 pictorial woodcuts are of obstetrical subjects, mostly of the various positions of the foetus in utero, plus two medallion portraits on colophon page, one ornamental woodcut initial. II. VD16 B 356; Panzer VI, 111, 359. First edition of the treaty on marriage offered by the Venetian humanist Barbaro (1390-1454) to his friend Laurent de Medici on the occasion of his marriage in 1416 with Ginevra Cavalcanti. Among the duties of women, he insists on the need for noble women to breast-feed their infants themselves. Includes a beautiful mark of the pharmacy Setzer on the last leaf. *Dedication from the gynecologist Tarnier to Professor Herrgott, dated 1886/Paris. Inventor of the forceps and a supporter of Lister's aseptic practices, Etienne (or Stéphane) Tarnier (1828-1897) devised for the premature Incubator, reducing infant mortality by almost 30% in the Maternity Hospital in three years. Most of his work was published in the "Traité de l'art des accouchements" published under the names of Tarnier and his assistant Burin. His dedication to François Herrgott (1814-1907), professor in the faculty of medicine of Nancy and historian of medicine, occupies the whole verso of the first flyleaf. One can imagine that the few annotations in red ink are by Herrgott's hand. Our copy is quoted by Herrgott in his Essai d'une histoire de l'obstétricien, Paris, 189, II, p. 28. Very Good.

        T. LIVII PATAVINI HISTORIARUM AB URBE CONDITA DECADIS QUINTAE LIBRI QUNQUE NUNC PRIMUM EXCUSI. [Together with]: TITI LIVII PATAVINI DECADUM XIIII EPITOMAE. LUCIUS FLORUS. (2 books bound in one volume, as issued).

      Florentiae (Florence]: Bernardi Juntae [Bernardo Giunta], May 1532., 1532.. Good. - Small octavo, 6-1/2 inches high by 4 inches wide. Bound in full early natural vellum titled in holograph on the spine. The covers are slightly warped and stained. The collation is as follows: [1] blank, leaves [1] through 131, and [1] leaf illustrated with an attractive printer's mark; followed by leaves [1] to 52, with an attractive pictorial title page illustrated with a variant printer's mark. (The leaves are numbered on the rectos only, thus the first book has 264 pages and the second book has 104 pages). The colophon is printed on the verso of leaf 131. As issued, pages 42, 44 and 46 are misnumbered as 34, 6, and 38 respectively. There is evidence of early worming affecting the endpapers and pastedowns as well as the inner and outer edges of the last page. The hinges are cracked and the rear endpaper is torn. There is otherwise only occasional minor foxing and faint occasional staining. Good. <p>Mounted on the front pastedown is Leo Samuel Loschi's discreet attractive book label "Ex libri Leonis S. Olschki bibliopolae Veneti". Leo Samuel Olschki founded the Libreria Antiquaria Editrice in Verona, Italy in 1886. The firm moved to its permanent home in Florence in 1897. It is among Italy's most distinguished publishers of important works in the humanities.<p>This book subsequently came into the collection of Arthur Mullin, with his serpent & anchor bookplate mounted on the front pastedown.<p>As noted by Bandino ["De Florentina Juntarum Typographia"], the second work by Lucius Florus does not include a date or identify a printer. However, the Giunta mark with 2 infants holding a lily and with cornucopias at their sides is present on the title page.<p>The Roman historian Titus Livius [Livy] (64 or 59 BC to 17 AD) was responsible for the monumental history of Rome, "Ab Urbe Condita". It is his only surviving work and only a fragment of it exists. The book offered here describes the fifth decade and of that only the first five books remain. These give an account of the Roman war with the Macedonian King Perseus. The corruption of several Roman governors is described as well as the Third Punic War.

        De Symmetria partium in rectis formis humanorum corporum, Libri in Latinum conversi (per J. Camerarium).

      Nürnberg: in aedib. viduae Durerianae, 1532. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (301 x 204 mm). 80 unnumbered leaves (last blank). Signatures: A-E6 F4 G-N6 O4. Title with 8-line verse to the reader above Dürer's woodcut monogram, gothic letter text in single and double columns, woodcuts throughout including 85 full-length figures of the human body. 18th-century vellum over pasteboards with gilt-lettered morocco spine label (extremities little rubbed, corners bumped, little worming to boards, head of spine and endpapers), marbled endpapers, blue-colored edges. Minor browning and spotting to text, title and a few other pages with light brown stains, erased stamp(?) on final leaf. Provenance: bookplate with monogram "VGL" to front pastedown and small stamp to title-page. A fine, unmarked and unrestored copy. ----Adams D-1044; Fairfax Murray German Books 152; Bohatta 20. - First Latin edition by Camerarius of book I and II of the "Vier Bücher der menschlichen Proportion" (books III and IV were published in 1534 under the title "De varietate"). The woodcuts are derived from the German edition of 1528. Unlike his Italian contemporary, Leonardo da Vinci, who published nothing, Dürer lived and worked in the world of printing and engraving. Dürer's treatise on human proportion was the earliest of the three theoretical works written in his later years. Dürer began formulating mathematical rules for the proportions of the human form soon after his first trip to Venice in 1494-5. For his mathematical formulations he drew upon the works of antiquity as well as the Italian rediscoveries; as for his other theoretical works, his goal was to establish a scientific basis for aesthetics and to provide practical guidelines for draftsmanship. "The book is the synthesis of Dürer's solutions to his self-imposed formal problems; in it he sets forth his formal aesthetic... Dürer's aesthetic rules are based firmly in the laws of optics--indeed, he even designed special mechanical instruments to aid in the measurement of human form. He used the height of the human body as the basic unit of measurement..." (DSB). Erste lateinische Ausgabe der 1528 deutsch erschienenen grundlegenden Proportionslehre der Renaissance. "De Symmetria" umfaßt Buch I u. II des deutschen Werkes. Die Illustrationen sind die der Original-Ausgabe. Ein von Bohatta vermuteter erster lateinischer Druck der "Symmetria" von 1528 existiert nicht. Very Good.
