        Michael/ Angelus/ Bonarotus/ Pinxit/ Adam/ Sculptor/ Mantuanus/ Incidit

      [Mantua, after 1532, before 1580, ca. 1550?]. 73 engraved plates on 36 sheets; each half-sheet measures 22.5 x 33 cm. Michelangelo as seen by art students of the next generation. This series of engravings, of individual figures from Michelangelo?s Sistine Chapel ceiling frescoes, was probably made for modelling studies by a Mantuan artist of whose ?uvre this isthe major part. Smudging in corners of the early sheets and indications of tracing ontheverso of plate 37 are the remains ofits use as a student book. Michelangelo?s accurate anatomy, dramatic foreshortening and unconventional positioning must have been exciting material for early students to work with. That Adam Scultori was no Michelangelo can be seen by comparing hands drawn by the two artists. Michelangelo could make a hand exciting; Scultori?s versionof the same feature only makes us appreciate the master all the more. The series of plates form an iconographic andnarrative progression: 2-21: nude male figures of the ceiling panels (Plate Ten depicts a figure destroyed long ago); 22-33: sibyls and prophets; 34-61:lunettes depicting ancestors ofChrist; 62-65: destroyed by Michelangelo in 1532 to make space for The Last Judgment; 66-73:eight spandrels complementing the lunettes. The engravings eliminate all detail that might detract from anatomy and the flow of fabric. In his ordering, Scultori obliterates Michelangelo?s logical sequence: the plates were intended not as an accurate record of the paintings but as anatomical studies.

His accesserunt Epistolae duae de felicissimo apud Indos Evangelii incremento ... Item Epitome de inventis nuper Indiae populis idololatris ad fidem Christi ... convertendis, Autore R.P.F. Nicolao Herborn

      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'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'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. This copy from the library of Spencer Compton, the eighth Duke of Devonshire, with the Chatsworth bookplate. Church 63; Harisse 168; H.V.Jones 21; Sabin 16949; Medina I, 86; Palau 63192; JCB I, 103-104; Balle 15.

      Fine large woodcut on title, several other large woodcuts & about 125 woodcuts in the text. 8 p.l., 280 leaves. Small folio, cont. blindstamped calf-backed wooden boards (a few unimportant wormholes to first fifty leaves, occasional minor stain), orig. clasps & catches. Strasbourg: H. Grüniger, 1532. Third edition (1st ed.: 1512) of the "Grosse Distillierbuch," the most extensive early handbook of pharmacology, which remained an authority throughout the 16th century. The special purpose of this book was to apply the methods of distillation with steam to separate the active principles of medicinal agents from the nonessential matter. This is a richly illustrated work with more than 125 handsome woodcuts depicting distillation equipment, furnaces, and anatomical subjects. The text describes the distillation of spirits from wine, mead, and fermented fruit juices, and the distillation of plants, roots, and flowers. There are sections on aromatic and empyreumatic oils, distilled vinegar, and other products of distillation. There are particularly good descriptions of the technique of distillation. For each plant, Brunschwig has provided its synonyms, indications, and valuable parts. Brunschwig (ca. 1450-ca. 1512), after receiving an education in surgery, traveled extensively through Alsace, Swabia, Bavaria, and the Rhineland as far as Cologne, practicing surgery and acquiring experience in the preparation of medicines, specifically in the technique of distillation. He finally settled in his native city of Strasbourg where he practiced medicine and became a writer on medical and pharmacological subjects. A very good copy in a contemporary binding. Two leaves -- P6 and Q1 -- carefully remargined at head and foot with several neat repairs (from another copy?). ❧ D.S.B., II, pp. 546-47. Durling 749. .

        "Typus cosmographicus universalis" from Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus, Novis orbis Regionum

      Basel: Hervagius, 1532. THE FIRST WORLD MAPS TO DEPICT THE THEORIES OF NICOLAUS COPERNICUS Woodcut: 143/4" x 22" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 65; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 67. While the Paris edition of Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus's 1532 Novus orbis regionum included Oronce Finé's double-cordiform map (see above, n. 9), the Basel edition of the same year included this very different cartographic treatment of the world on an oval projection. With the cartography ascribed to prominent cartographer Sebastian Münster and the execution to the celebrated German artist Hans Holbein the Younger, the map is particularly fine from an artistic standpoint, with sea monsters adorning the waves of the oceans, exotic animals and landscape views with curious classical architectural structures around the margins, along with less benign scenes depicting acts of cannibalism and animal sacrifice. These nightmarish fantasies of terrible creatures and terrifying customs in distant places surely reflect the flights of imagination that contemporary geographical discoveries inspired among western Europeans, and one might go so far as to say that Holbein inflected his rendering with a distinctly medieval sensibility. In another sense, however, the map was progressive, even groundbreaking, for it was one of the first world maps to reflect the Copernican theory of a heliocentric universe. Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), the Polish astronomer who famously argued that the earth orbited around the sun and rotated once daily on its own axis, was Münster's contemporary. Although Copernicus's groundbreaking book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres) was not published until 1543, his ideas-- spread through lectures, circulated in written pamphlets and via word of mouth-- were gaining currency among geographers and astronomers when Münster published this map. Before Copernicus, most scholars had upheld the Ptolemaic conception of a stationary earth at the center of the universe. Ultimately, the theories of the Polish astronomer proved too radical to escape controversy and were rejected by the Church. (Later scholars, most notably Galileo Galilei and Giordano Bruno, were ultimately put to death for upholding and expanding upon Copernicus's theories.) In the 1530s, however, the controversy had yet to crystallize, and Münster and Holbein's map demonstrates an adherence to the Copernican model with the inclusion of two angels vigorously turning crank handles at the north and south poles, as though physically rotating the planet on a giant spit. The significance of this map, therefore, is not just aesthetic, for it also visualizes a key moment in the history of science and a turning point in knowledge about the workings of the universe..

        OPERA OMNIA TRALATIONE MARSILII FICINI. Emendatione et ad Graecum Codicem collatione Simonis Grynaei Nunc recens summa diligentia repurgata.

      In-4 (mm. 325x220), p. pergam. molle coeva (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, 6 cc.nn., 959 pp.num., marca tipografica al frontesp. e al verso dell?ultima carta; ornato da bei capilettera figur. a vignetta e con alcuni diagrammi astronomici nel t. che illustrano il ?Tymaeus?. Questa importante edizione, introdotta da una dedica del curatore S. Grynaeus, dal proemio dedicato a Lorenzo de Medici e dalla ?vita? di Platone scritta da Marsilio Ficino (che termina con l?Indice), contiene 37 opere platoniche (inclusi i Dialoghi, i 10 libri ?de Republica?, i 12 libri ?de Legibus? e 12 Lettere), i Commenti al ?Convivium? e al ?Timaeus? del Ficino, il quale prepose l??Argumentum? ad ogni Dialogo. La traduzione in latino delle opere di Platone, fatta da Marsilio Ficino, è considerata la più importante di ogni tempo. Il filosofo (1433-99) si dedicò interamente al platonismo quando (1458) Cosimo de? Medici gli accordò, con la sua protezione, anche i mezzi per compiere tali studi. Iniziata nella villa di Careggi (donatagli da Cosimo) la traduzione dei dialoghi platonici, egli alternava il lavoro con conversazioni di argomento filosofico, politico, letterario con gli amici. Da queste discussioni ebbe origine l?Accademia platonica. Il Ficino, nel commento di Platone, dimostrava chiaro il suo intento di conciliare paganesimo e cristianesimo, filosofia e religione. (Così Diz. Treccani,IV, p. 728). La traduzione dei dialoghi iniziata nel 1466 fu pubblicata per la prima volta a Firenze nel 1484 ed è considerata tra le più alte produzioni dell?Umanesimo. Questa edizione, per la prima volta accuratamente ricorretta dal teologo protestante Simon Grynaeus (1493-1541), su un manoscritto greco, è particolarmente stimata. Cfr. Adams,II,1445, p. 90 - Graesse,V, p. 320. Con lievi uniformi arross. interc. nel t.; ca. 50 carte con aloni e fiorit., ma certam. un buon esemplare marginoso.

        "Terræ Sanctæ, quam Palæstinam nominant, Syriæ, Arabiæ & Schondiæ doctissima descriptio, una cum singulis tabulis earundum regionum topographicis"

      The complete book, second edition. Small-folio, 28x19,3cm Contemporary calf, both covers with a frame, a gilt floral stamp in the middle and in the corners. The spine in seven compartments, each with a gilt flower and a library number "FE.7" in lower (the binding possibly carefully restored) Titlepage (I), II - CXLII (1 - 142 leaves inclusive title and five diagrams in text), 14 leaves index, 8 double-page woodcut maps, 2 leaves (3pp) "Incastigationum mendarum." Strasbourg (1532) - 1536 The humanist and theologian Jacob Ziegler was born in Bavaria and spent much of his time travelling around in Europe. In the 1520s he lived in Rome, and here he was influenced by religious people and theologians from many countries, many escaping from their home country because of the reformation. Among the people he met are the four Scandinavian church officials: Erik Walkendorf, Archbishop of Trondheim; Olav Engelbrektsson, Archbishop of Uppsala; Johannes Magnus and Bishop Peder Månsson who apparently gave him valuable geographical information about the North as well as knowledge about the people who lived here. The main part of the book and seven maps of eight describing Palestine with corrections and additions to earlier sources like Ptolemy and the Bible. The rest of the book is devoted to Scandinavia and the North. This part is perhaps mostly notable for the accompanying map of the area "Octava Tabula Continet Cheronnesum Schondiam, Regna autem potasium, Norduegiam, Sueciam, Gothiam, Finlandiam, Gentem Lapones". The map sets a new standard after the Ulm map 1482 and is a key map in the history of cartography of the North. For the first time the axis of Scandinavia is running north - south. The peninsula of Finland is not only distinctly depicted by Ziegler but the name Finland ("Finlandia") is for the first time being introduced on a printed map. In the text Ziegler gives an account of Greenland and the Scandinavian settlements. The American continent is melted together with Greenland and the name "Terra Bacallaos" - Land of Codfish on the southern part represents Newfoundland. First published in 1532 this second and last edition is dated four years later. The two editions are basically the same, but the book was given a new title in 1536 and it was added 64 pages text "Terræ Sanctæ desriptio" and 28 pages index. Map number eight of the Northern regions is identical in both editions.One of many treasures in the National Library in Oslo is a manuscript codex of Ziegler's book written by Martin Richter, Ziegler's permanent secretary. It contents 380 pages and three maps including the map of Scandinavia.. A very fine, crisp copy in original condition and with good margins. In a representative binding. William B.
