        Historie Fiorentine

      Bernardo Di Giunta, Florence 1532 - FIRST FLORENCE EDITION, possibly the first edition overall, of an essential Renaissance text. SCARCE. Niccolo Machiavelli did not write that which we call history today. For him, history and historiography were one and the same, and the Florentine Historie is the best example of that. In 1520, Machiavelli was commissioned by Giulio de' Medici to write an account of the history of Florence. The book he produced "is the first example in Italian literature of a national biography, the first attempt in any literature to trace the vicissitudes of a people's life in their logical sequence, deducing each successive phase from passions or necessities inherent in preceding circumstance, reasoning upon them from general principles, and inferring corollaries for the conduct of the future." (Britannica). It is all the more unusual because Machiavelli followed the humanist style "of inventing speeches. Even though he was not present and could not have been present, he puts appropriate speeches into the mouths of actual historical figures as if they were characters in a play of his. Fact, in their [the humanists] view, needs to be filled out with opinion, and it is the duty of the historian, in the absence of scribes and witnesses, to infer human intention and to make it explicit in speeches, adding sense to actions in order to arrive at truth." (Harvey Claflin Mansfield, Machiavelli's Virtue). The reason behind Machiavelli's historiography as history is that he believed that histories should not just tell an account of what happened and when, but should be beneficial to the people of which they speak. Today, our historians are meant to distance themselves from their subjects; to Machiavelli, an intimate relation to the country about which he wrote was a necessity. The Florentine Historie, therefore, was not solely a commissioned work, but a tribute to "Machiavelli's desire to write a history that would inspire all lovers of the common good of man in whatever age or nation." The speeches he fabricated, the emotions behind the mere events he wrote about "are developed beyond dramatic requirements into expositions of social and political truths suggested by Florentine events. Incidentally, these orations enabled Machiavelli to deal with the problem of the Medici." (Allan Gilbret, Machiavelli). While Florentine Historie would not be considered an honest historical account today, the history that was presented to the Cardinal, by then Pope Clement VII, is perhaps truer than mere factual history. Because "his historical context includes both the facts of his time, which would have influenced his writing of history, and the historiography characteristic of his time, together with the conception of history underlying those historiographic methods," he created a far more complete image of Florence than could ever be garnered from an impersonal examination of the city's archives (Mansfield). ON THIS EDITION: After Machiavelli's death in 1527 there was a rush to publish his remaining works, and a fierce competition began between the Roman printer Blado and the Florentine printer Guinta to be the first to press. Although Giunta had been given the approval of Machiavelli's heirs and rushed to honor his fellow Florentine with elegant editions of his works, both Blado's and Giunta's editions of The Florentine History appeared almost simultaneously. It is now presumed that Blado's Roman edition, dated 25 March 1532, preceded Giunta's by two days. Some copies of the Giunta edition are dated 27 March 1532 in the colophon, while others such as the present copy are dated 16 March 1532. It is possible that Giunta printed an incorrect 16 March date to convince the public that his edition was indeed first. Florence: Bernardo di Giunta, 1532. Quarto, contemporary full blind-ruled decorative calf rebacked. Without the four errata leaves, as usual. Two early signatures to title page.

Provenance: Duke of Devonshire (bookplate on the front pastedown) A crucial edition, with many important materials published for the first time. Second Latin edition of the second and third letters of Cortés to Emperor Charles V and the first to contain missionary reports from Yucatan and Mexico. Cortés gave his personal account of the conquest of Mexico in a series of five letters, or Cartas de Relación , which he addressed to Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor. The famed first letter was lost, making the second letter the earliest account by Cortés himself, describing the events in Mexico after his departure from Vera Cruz. The third letter continues the narrative, describing Mexican events from October 1520 to May 1522. The present work includes the second editions in Latin of the second and third letters (translated by Petrus Savorgbabus), as well as Peter Martyr's De Insulia (a condensed version of the lost first Cortés letter); a letter from Mexico by Martin de Valencia, dated June 12, 1531, which is the first printed report from the Yucatan; a letter from Bishop Zumarraga giving an account of the Franciscan schools in Mexico, their teachers, and the Indian converts; and a letter from Nicholaus Herborn dated 1532. These last three sections appear here in this edition for the first time. A rare edition, with only three other copies appearing in the auction records over the last thirty-five years.

A nice wide-margined copy in contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden bds., 1 brass catch, lacking clasps (covers scuffed, rear cover with a few small round wormholes, spine ends & corners worn, paper label on upper spine, tear in Tt4-6 – no loss). Sixth Edition of the Latin Translation by Marsilio Ficino, the first to contain the careful revisions of distinguished Protestant theologian Simon Grynaeus [1493-1541]. Grynaeus, a friend of Melanchthon and Erasmus, and professor of Greek at Heidelberg (1523) and Basel (1536), was also the editor of the second Greek edition of Plato, published at Basel in 1534. Ficino’s translation, begun in 1466 and first published in 1484-85, made his name famous in the history of scholarship and has been called "the best translation of that author Italy can boast." (Encyc. Britan., 11th Edn.) The manuscripts on which he worked were supplied by his patron Cosimo de’ Medici and by Americo Benci. While the translation was in progress, Ficino periodically submitted its pages for discussion and revision to Angelo Poliziano, Christoforo Landino, Demetrios Chalchondylas, and other fellow scholars who were members of the Platonic Academy. "Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) was the most influential representative of Renaissance Platonism. Together with Alberti, Pico della Mirandola, Cosimo de’ Medici, Politian, and Landino, he founded the Platonic Academy in Florence. Although several works of Plato had been available in Latin translations prior to the fifteenth century, Ficino made the first complete translation of the Platonic corpus into a Western language (1484). This publication marks a major point in the intellectual history of Europe. The work was of such high quality that it remained in general use until the eighteenth century.  (Univ. of Chicago, Berlin Collection) A fine early edition from a notable sixteenth century press.

Paris, Christian Wechel, 1535. (40) ff., including 10 double-page/extended leaves as described by Mortimer. First Latin edition of Dürer’s first book on the theory of art, the Unterweisung der Messung, bound with the first Latin edition of his treatise on fortification, "strictly speaking the first treatise dealing exclusively with this subject" (Krufft), with important material on urban planning and utopianism.1) Illustrated by Dürer himself, the Institutionum Geometricarum outlines the artist’s theory of "the work of art as a natural object", which became an accepted aesthetic dogma until the 19th century. Far more than the German original of 1525, this translation by the humanist Camerarius brought the treatise to the attention of the whole of Europe. As a theoretical statement by "the last major painter to be counted a significant geometer" (Kemp), the work is naturally of interest for applications in Dürer’s own oeuvre as well as for the history of perspective. After his encounter with Luca Pacioli in Italy, Dürer became convinced of how close the links are between art and mathematics and devoted himself to the study of form through the resources offered by arithmetic and geometry. The result was the present work. In this work Dürer teaches the principles of perspective and explains the application of practical geometry to drawing and painting. It became a very influential text as its audience broadened from artists to architects, sculptors, and different craftsmen and was translated and reprinted several times.Panofsky describes the treatise’s importance as three-fold: for the technical innovation in the construction of a perspective apparatus in which the eye of the observer is dispensed with entirely; for being the first literary document "in which a strictly representational problem received a strictly scientific treatment at the hands of a Northerner"; and for emphasizing that "perspective is not a technical discipline destined to remain subsidiary to painting or architecture, but an important branch of mathematics, capable of being developed into what is now known as general projective geometry" (Panofsky, p. 252).Book Three contains Dürer’s famous treatise on the just shaping of Roman capital letters and gothic or ‘Textur’ letters built up by means of small geometrical forms, a method original with Dürer. (This text was translated into English by R.T. Nichol for publication by the Grolier Club, Of the Just Shaping of Letters, New York, 1917.)2) Inspired by the artist’s witnessing the siege of Hohenasperg in 1519 and by fear of the advancing Turkish armies, Krufft writes, De Urbibus "employs a dual approach. On the one hand Dürer develops various alternatives for the construction of bastions to defend existing cities; this is the contemporary aspect. At the heart of the treatise, he outlines a utopian city, in which the nature of fortification merely serves as a spur to the depiction of a social structure organized on the ground.

        "Nova, et integra universi orbis descriptio" ("New Map of the Entire World")From Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus, Novis orbis Regionum

      Paris: Galliot Du Pré, 1532. THE MOST SPECTACULAR FRENCH RENAISSANCE DOUBLE-CORDIFORM MAP OF THE WORLD, DESIGNED BY A MATHAMATICAL GENIUS Woodcut: 13" x 16 7/8" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 64; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 66; R. V. Tooley, Maps and Map-makers (New York, reprint 1990), 38. Oronce Finé, the most eminent French cartographer of the sixteenth century, is celebrated for having employed a distinctive and influential cordiform (or heart-shaped) projection for world maps. This striking example, the first double-cordiform map ever published, was subsequently much imitated. Drawn in 1531, it first appeared in the 1532 Paris edition of Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus's Novus orbis regionum, a collection of travel accounts that had also been published in Basel several months before. As a double-cordiform representation, it shows the world divided into separate hemispheres, north and south, each depicted in the form of a heart or cordum that mirrors the other, with the two meeting at a central point on the Equator. The left or northern cordum encompasses Asia, Europe, part of Africa and America, while the right includes those parts of Africa and the New World that lay south of the Equator as well as "Terra Australis," the southern continent that was then little more than speculative. Based on sophisticated geometric principles for reducing the spherical earth to a two-dimensional image, Finé's delineation of the world was much copied throughout the sixteenth century. Oval formats, double-hemispheric maps, and ultimately Mercator's projection won out, but few of these other solutions to the problem of creating a world picture matched the aesthetic quality of Finé's heart-shaped image. In addition to the decorative nature of the double-cordiform projection itself, there are ornamental elements surrounding the margins: elaborate foliate patterning, putti bearing strapwork crests, allegorical figures, mermaids and so on. According to the scholar Rodney W. Shirley, moreover, the map was "a rendering considerably in advance of any others printed earlier." Remarkably, Finé showed the landmass of the South Pole to the exact mathematical delineation, a feat way in advance of his time. It is still unknown as to how he achieved it. The map also boasts several geographic developments, such as the naming of the Pacific Ocean beneath the tip of South America "Mare Magellanicum," while Central America incorporates place names that reflect the latest conquests and explorations of Cortez in that region. As with many earlier maps, the North American continent is depicted as an extension of eastern Asia, but Florida appears in its peninsular form and the rendering of the Gulf Coast is also recognizable. Overall, Finé's accomplishment was such that none other than Gerard Mercator, arguably the greatest cartographer of the sixteenth century, looked to this map when compiling his own landmark representation of the world in 1538..

Rare second (first Antwerp) edition of Claude de Seyssel's French translation of Eusebius's chronological church history, first published by Geofroy Tory in Paris in 1532. Written in Greek in the 4th century, Eusebius drew on a wide variety of sources, recording much valuable historical information that would otherwise have been lost. Seyssel's translation was based on Rufinus's Latin rendering of 401 AD.The three bastarda types are Vervliet B1, B2 and B5, all thought to have been cut by De Keyser himself. He had used the smallest, here in the main text (72.5 mm/20 lines or 10.5 point) since 1527 or 1530, but the two larger ones (94 mm or 14 point and about 180 mm or 26 point) make their first known appearance in the present book, where they are crisply printed from freshly cast type. Vervliet notes the middle size only from 1534, but it was used to set 7 lines on the present title-page and a line or two opening the first four chapters. The central panel of the panel stamp on the binding resembles those cited in Foot, Goldschmidt, Oldham and to a lesser degree Sorgeloos/Speeckaert, all dated ca. 1527-ca. 1534, but their outer panels are all similar to each other and differ greatly from the present example. We have found nothing similar to the present outer panel in the literature.With owners' entries on front pastedown: "SGS MGS/H. Spanofsky" dated 1555 and "Gott begnadt Hoffnung/Christ. Tenngler zum/Ramblsperg und Schaltenstain" (in Bavaria) dated 1563. In very good condition internally. The binding slightly chafed, cracks in the spine and hinges and head of spine chipped, but most of both panel stamps remains well preserved. Rare Antwerp edition of an important ecclesiastical history, also important for the printing types and panel-stamped binding.

        Opus de re medica, nunc primum integratum latinitate donatum, per Joannem Guinterium Andernacum.

      Paris, Simon de Colines 1532 - In-folio [335 x 217 mm]. Collation : (40), 47, (9), 39, (9), 127, (9), 48, (8), 24, (8), 83, (9), 158 pp., 1 f. bl. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure du XVIIIe.) Première édition de la traduction de Johannes Guinterius (Guinter von Andernach), le professeur de Vésale. Le "De Re medica", divisé en 7 livres, traite d'hygiène, de diététique, de pathologie, des maladies de la tête, de la lèpre, des maladies de la peau, des poisons, de pharmacologie et de chirurgie. Le plus grand médecin de l'époque byzantine était aussi un remarquable chirurgien. Son ouvrage est le meilleur manuel de médecine opératoire de l'Antiquité. Paul d'Aegine y enseigne plusieurs méthodes d'opération de la face, ce qui en fait un des premiers livres de chirurgie plastique. "The extreme practicality of the text and its consequent use doubtless accounts for its rarity today. Its section on surgery, Book VI, has been called the principal medical work of the Byzantine era." Stillwell 473. Cet ouvrage n'avait été jusqu'ici publié qu'en grec par Alde Manuce. Il a été publié la même année à Basle, dans une traduction d' Alban Thorer. Belle marque d'imprimeur sur le titre. Schreiber, S. de Colines 89 : "The first to publish a complete translation was therefore Johannes Guinterius, who . states that he used three Greek texts : the Aldine princeps, an ancient manuscript belonging to Janus Lascaris and a "codex of marvelous antiquity" belonging to Jean Ruel." Coins et coiffes usés. Petit trou de ver traversant tout le volume, un autre trou de ver avec perte d'une ou deux lettres sur les premiers 18 feuillets et qui se poursuit dans la marge. Durling 3551.

Folio (320 x 205mm). pp. (viii), 266, (66, including final blank); pp. 313, 5, (1, blank), title of first volume in woodcut border, full page woodcut coat of arms of Strassburg, 4 woodcut ornamental borders, and 138 woodcuts of plants, mostly full page. Contemporary limp vellum, old lettering on spine. A very fine Large Paper copy, much larger than copies we have had or seen. Both volumes in the second edition. The first edition of the first volume is exceedingly rare. "A genuine milestone in the history of the botanical sciences.. " (Tomasi & Willis. An Oak Spring Herbaria p. 31). "This is an important book. Brunfels was the first great mind in modern botany and as Sachs says, a new epoch of natural science began with Brunfels...."(Hunt 30). A celebrated herbal which marks an epoch in the history of botanic illustration. It was the first herbal illustrated with drawings which are throughout both beautiful and true to nature. The plants are represented as they are in the greatest possible artistic perfection by Weiditz, one of the best German illustrators, whose name appears in the book. "Weiditz accepted Nature as he found her. Was a leaf torn or drooping, a flower withered?- he observed the fact with the cold eye of the realist and recorded it with the precision of a true craftsman. The beauty was never wantonly sacrificed to mere scientific accuracy; the poet in him always triumphed, the artist in him always prevailed. His work must ever remain the high-water mark of woodcutting employed in the service of botanical illustration" (Blunt p. 47). Posthumously a third volume was published in 1536 by Michael Herr, which is seldon found with the first two volumes, and which was illustrated by an other artist. Nissen BBI, 257, 1b & 257, 2b; Hunt 30..

        Institutionum Geometricarum

      Paris: Christian Wechel, 1532. First Latin edition of Dürer&#146;s first book on the theory of art, the Unterweisung der Messung, bound with the first Latin edition of his treatise on fortification, &#147;strictly speaking the first treatise dealing exclusively with this subject&#148; (Krufft), with important material on urban planning and utopianism.1) Illustrated by Dürer himself, the Institutionum Geometricarum outlines the artist&#146;s theory of &#147;the work of art as a natural object&#148;, which became an accepted aesthetic dogma until the 19th century. Far more than the German original of 1525, this translation by the humanist Camerarius brought the treatise to the attention of the whole of Europe. As a theoretical statement by &#147;the last major painter to be counted a significant geometer&#148; (Kemp), the work is naturally of interest for applications in Dürer&#146;s own oeuvre as well as for the history of perspective. After his encounter with Luca Pacioli in Italy, Dürer became convinced of how close the links are between art and mathematics and devoted himself to the study of form through the resources offered by arithmetic and geometry. The result was the present work. In this work Dürer teaches the principles of perspective and explains the application of practical geometry to drawing and painting. It became a very influential text as its audience broadened from artists to architects, sculptors, and different craftsmen and was translated and reprinted several times.Panofsky describes the treatise&#146;s importance as three-fold: for the technical innovation in the construction of a perspective apparatus in which the eye of the observer is dispensed with entirely; for being the first literary document &#147;in which a strictly representational problem received a strictly scientific treatment at the hands of a Northerner&#148;; and for emphasizing that &#147;perspective is not a technical discipline destined to remain subsidiary to painting or architecture, but an important branch of mathematics, capable of being developed into what is now known as general projective geometry&#148; (Panofsky, p. 252).Book Three contains Dürer&#146;s famous treatise on the just shaping of Roman capital letters and gothic or &#145;Textur&#146; letters built up by means of small geometrical forms, a method original with Dürer. (This text was translated into English by R.T. Nichol for publication by the Grolier Club, Of the Just Shaping of Letters, New York, 1917.)2) Inspired by the artist&#146;s witnessing the siege of Hohenasperg in 1519 and by fear of the advancing Turkish armies, Krufft writes, De Urbibus &#147;employs a dual approach. On the one hand Dürer develops various alternatives for the construction of bastions to defend existing cities; this is the contemporary aspect. At the heart of the treatise, he outlines a utopian city, in which the nature of fortification merely serves as a spur to the depiction of a social structure organized on the ground... Related trades are placed side by side; smiths are to be housed near foundries, etc. The town hall and the houses of the nobility are sited near the royal palace. The whole system of organization is hierarchical and functional. Dürer thinks of every function of the city, right down to the taverns&#148; (Krufft, History of Architectural Theory, p. 110 ). Elsewhere Krufft suggests that Serlio employed the present treatise in book VI.According to Mortimer, the woodblocks are close copies of the 1527 German original.* 1)Mortimer, French I.182; Vagnetti E II.b7; Panofsky, The Life and Art of Albrecht Dürer, Chapter 8, &#147;Dürer as a theorist of Art&#148;, esp. 247-60; Kemp, The Science of Art, 53ff.; 2) Mortimer, French I.184; Fowler 113 (1527 German); Krufft, History of Architectural Theory, 110-111..

        Pausaniou Tes Hellados periegesis and Pausaniæ Graeciae descriptio accurata

      An indispensable guide to southern and central Greece in the 2nd century and the most important surviving classical work on early Greek religious practices, art, and architecture with authoritative treatments of the Apollo sanctuary at Delphi (60 pages in Book X), and the Zeus shrine at Olympia (110 pages of the Elis books), and with crucial detail on hundreds of sites and locales. "Pausanias is the only known reliable source on many aspects of early Greek history". (Habicht, p. 28) "Like Herodotus, Pausanias was a mine of ethnographic information about the classical world." (Ackerman, p. 128) "But the value of Pausanias to archaeologists and to all classical scholars is unique and astonishing" (Levi, p. 1). By general acclaim, the Kühn remained the most valued critical Greek text until well into the 19th century. Winckelmann used Kühn (Kochs) and Brunet states, "edition belle es très-correcte" (p. 454). EDITION: The first Kühn edition, bilingual Greek and Latin text in parallel columns with catchwords, supplementary matter in Latin and Hebrew, title in red and black decorated with printer's engraved, b/w pictorial mark, a 112 x 73 mm Pegasus (flying horse), texts decorated with chapter initials and arabesque woodcut head-and-foot pieces with botanical or classical motifs, with introductions to each book, now formatted in chapters and with added new notes, based in part on work of Isaac Casaubon, text principally from the critical Greek text by Wilhelm Xylander [1532-1576], completed by Friedrich Sylburg [1536-1596], their notes retained for each page. Latin translation: Romolo Quirino Amaseo [1489-1552]. FORMAT: Untouched, early, full vellum boards, sides stamped in center with a foliated arabesque botanical design circumscribing a portrait head, different for each side, the seven compartment banded spine decorated with gold leaf floral tools, with three mounted morocco lettering devices with gold leaf letters, numbers, and borders, these, decorated with finely executed bead and lozenge elements; all edges tinted red. SIZE: Folio, 358 x 233 mm, pages with full margins, 333 x 212 mm, as issued. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, except lacking blank front leaf: [26 pages]; 1-898 pages; 899-943 pp., each column as one page; (1); [75] pages, unpaginated indices; index 1, 29 leaves; index 2, 9 pages and index 3, 8 pages; [1] rear blank leaf. Guide to Greece provides details on hundreds of sites and villages in Attica and the Peloponnese, (Southern and Central Greece), only incidentally mentioning Northern Greece, and doesn't describe Crete. Pausanias begins his description of each city with a synopsis of its history. Book I (with separate title page): Attica on Athens (with much valuable detail on the Agora), Atticus and Megara; pp 1-109. Book II: Corinth on Corinth, Argolis and island of Aegina; pp. 109-202. Book III: Laconia; pp. 203-278. Book IV: Messenia; pp. 279-373, principally on its history. Books V + VI: Elis; pp. 374-450 and pp. 451-520. Book VII: Achaea; pp. 521-597. Book VIII: Arcadia; pp. 597-710. Book IX: Boeotia; pp. 711-797. Book X: Phocis, especially Delphi, and parts of Locris; pp. 797-898. CONDITION DETAIL: Owner Markings: minimal: neatly mounted shelf label top corner of pastedown: bookplate: some handwritten notations providing pages in subject index. Pages: excellent: exceptionally clean and bright with some cockling, about 15 pages with an isolated small margin spot: a preliminary page with a closed vertical bottom margin tear: p 88: a small fore-edge chip and soiling in inner margin: p. 95: minor top corner tear: pp. 645-646: bottom edge chip with light loss: pp. 647-648: tear in inner margin, tear in outer margin, and .75 mm tear in text with loss of 6 Greek letters: pp. 835-850: slight toning: pp. 915-916: head of fore-edge margin with slight loss: last index page with slight bottom corner crease, pen mark and slight toning . Covers: overall rubs and soiling: corners bent in. Upper Side: stamped design partially rubbed off: Binding: upper joint split at compartments 2 & 3 with splitting along much of spine, but nevertheless, reliably attached: hinges excellent: signatures solid: pages turn well and lie flat. Bookplate: print fine: mount o.k.: a top corner detached. PROVENANCE: Thomas Papillon Esq, of Acrise Place, Kent and Crowhurst Park, Sussex [1803-1883], his engraved b/w bookplate from a Thomas Cole design with distinctive butterfly motif at the center of his heraldic coat of arms with circumscribing Latin motto, "Ditat Servata Fides" (faith preserved enriches). Print is 98 x 84 mm in the plate, mounted on the half-title page. "The design was originally done for Burke's Heraldic Illustrations and later used as a bookplate" (British Museum). Laid-In-Note: handwritten pen & ink Dibdin quote on Kühn edition, not in Dibdin's hand, copier unknown. AVAILABILITY: Very Scarce: a worldwide search finds this edition highly sought after and collected with 80 institutional holdings, including at Princeton, Oxford and Cambridge: "Pausanias was Winckelmann's guide" (Pretzler). KÜHN: chair of Greek and Hebrew at the University of Strasbourg from 1685. REFERENCE: The 19th century Greek critical text that superseded Kühn was the Hitzig and Blümner published in 1856, both supplanted by the now authoritative Rocha-Pereira 2nd edition published in 1989.

        Protomathesis

      Architectural woodcut title border; a large woodcut of Urania & the author beneath a celestial sphere, repeated in the "Cosmographia" section; a large woodcut of a water-clock, repeated; 280 other woodcuts in the text; and numerous large initials & headpieces. 8 p.l., 207 (i.e. 209) leaves, one leaf of errata. Folio, most attractive early 18th-cent. mottled half-sheep & mottled boards (first two leaves a little discolored), spine gilt, pale brown & green morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: [G. Morrhe & J. Pierre], 1532. First collected edition, and a magnificent large copy of this beautiful book, containing the first printings of many of Finé&#39;s texts; this is his masterpiece of illustrated book production. The first two parts of the Protomathesis deal with arithmetic and geometry, the third with cosmography, and the fourth with gnomonics. Finé (1494-1555), "was Regius professor of mathematics and dedicated the volume to François I. Before Johnson&#39;s article and Brun&#39;s consideration of Finé, little attention had been paid to the statements made by Finé&#39;s contemporaries that he was considered as well versed in art as in the sciences. His work as a designer is closely related to his major fields of mathematics, astronomy, and geography, and his contribution to book production is particularly interesting in extending beyond the illustration to the ornamentation of scientific texts."-Mortimer 225. A fine and fresh copy, very crisp. With the blank leaves F8 and N6. Early 18th-century bookplate of "Co. Riccati." This was the noble Riccati family which held land near Venice. The family produced two prominent scientists: Jacopo Francesco (1676-1754) and his second son Vincenzo (1707-75). They both made important contributions to mathematics (see D.S.B., XI, pp. 399-402). There are a number of knowledgeable 18th-century annotations in this book which could well have been made by one of the Riccatis. &#10087; Hoover 312. Lalande, p. 50-"on trouve les cadrans plans horizontaux, verticaux, équinoxiaux; les cadrans sur les cylindres, les anneaux et les quarts-de-cercle; les hémisphères concaves et convexes; le cadran rectiligne universel des hauteurs; les heures italiques; l&#39;instrument pour trouver l&#39;heure par les étoiles, l&#39;anneau astronomique; un instrument propre à tracer les cadrans; c&#39;est un cercle équinoxial traversé d&#39;un axe, et un fil qu&#39;on tend sur les heures.&#39;&#39; Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 160-61.

      Cologne: ex officina Melchioris Novesiani, impensis Arnoldi Birckman, September 1532. Small folio, signed in 4s and 6s. (10 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches). [82] ff. Text in latin. Woodcut title-portrait of Charles V within a woodcut border of escutcheons of Spanish provinces and towns, the portrait repeated within decorative border-pieces on A1 and F1, large ornamental woodcut initials and border-pieces in text, woodcut printer&#39;s device at end. Later half calf and paper boards, gilt leather labels. Housed in a black morocco backed box. A crucial edition, with many important materials published for the first time. Second Latin edition of the second and third letters of Cortés to Emperor Charles V and the first to contain missionary reports from Yucatan and Mexico. Cortés gave his personal account of the conquest of Mexico in a series of five letters, or Cartas de Relación, which he addressed to Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor. The famed first letter was lost, making the second letter the earliest account by Cortés himself, describing the events in Mexico after his departure from Vera Cruz. The third letter continues the narrative, describing Mexican events from October 1520 to May 1522. The present work includes the second editions in Latin of the second and third letters (translated by Petrus Savorgbabus), as well as Peter Martyr&#39;s De Insulia (a condensed version of the lost first Cortés letter); a letter from Mexico by Martin de Valencia, dated June 12, 1531, which is the first printed report from the Yucatan; a letter from Bishop Zumarraga giving an account of the Franciscan schools in Mexico, their teachers, and the Indian converts; and a letter from Nicholaus Herborn dated 1532. These last three sections appear here in this edition for the first time. A rare edition, with only three other copies appearing in the auction records over the last thirty- five years.

The plants are represented as they are in the greatest possible artistic perfection by Weiditz, one of the best German illustrators, whose name appears in the book. "Weiditz accepted Nature as he found her. Was a leaf torn or drooping, a flower withered?- he observed the fact with the cold eye of the realist and recorded it with the precision of a true craftsman. The beauty was never wantonly sacrificed to mere scientific accuracy; the poet in him always triumphed, the artist in him always prevailed. His work must ever remain the high-water mark of woodcutting employed in the service of botanical illustration" (Blunt p. 47). Posthumously a third volume was published in 1536 by Michael Herr, which is seldon found with the first two volumes, and which was illustrated by an other artist. Nissen BBI, 257, 1b & 257, 2b; Hunt 30.
