Machiavelli, Niccolo
Florence: Bernardo Di Giunta, 1532. 1st Edition. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Grynaeus, Simon]
Basel, 1532. [48],584 [i.e., 586],[2]pp. Lacks the map. Folio. Full calf in period style, stamped in gilt. Slight worming to first hundred leaves, mostly affecting margins. Contemporary annotations throughout volume. A very good copy. First edition of one of the most important collections of New World material issued up to the time. Grynaeus is often given credit for this volume, somewhat unfairly, since the majority of the work was compiled by John Huttich. The work describes the voyages of Columbus and Vespucci, and prints various accounts of Portuguese discoveries in Brazil and the East, accounts of Marco Polo, and much of the material gathered by Peter Martyr. There are extensive accounts of almost all of the European voyages to the larger world. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 532/17. SABIN 34100. HARRISSE 171. JCB (3)I:104. STREIT I:28. MEDINA (BHA) 46n.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Busteter, Hans.
Hainrichen Stayner], 1532. 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).

ZWINGLI (Ulrich)
- 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tragicomedia del Epicuro Napolitano, intitulata la Cecaria, nuovamente aggiontovi un bellissimo lamento del Geloso con la Luminaria non piu posta in luce, con ogni diligentia revista, corretta, & ristampata. per Nicolo dAristotile detto Zoppino, Vinegia, 1532. In-24 gr. (mm. 147x93), p. pergam. ottocentesca, cornice con doppio filetto ai piatti e decoraz. oro al centro, tit. oro al dorso, tagli dorati, dentelles dorate ai risg., 32 cc.nn.

Nicola con la mitra seduto in cattedra). In fine due Madrigali de lautore medesimo. In questa composizione drammatica, tre ciechi, il primo dei quali accompagnato da una Guida, invocano la morte per la loro infermit causata dallamore. Dal loro incontro nasce l'occasione per una descrizione delle proprie sventure e delle bellezze delle donne amate. L'apparizione di un sacerdote d'Amore compie il miracolo di far riacquistare la vista ai tre ciechi. Questo in breve l'argomento della "tragicommedia". Fra le numerosissime edizioni uscite nel corso del sec. XVI, le prime riportano solo il "Dialogo di tre ciechi", mentre dal 1530 il testo viene completato dalla Luminaria (nella quale compare il sacerdote d'Amore), a formare l'intera composizione poi conosciuta e tramandata come "Cecaria".Alcune edizioni della "Cecaria" portano come nome dell'autore Antonio Epicuro, confuso con il contemporaneo Pietro Antonio Caracciolo e con il Notturno Napoletano, mentre altri h … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maestro del Dado
Incisione al bulino, circa 1532, della serie Storia di Psiche. Esemplare di terzo stato, con l’indirizzo dell’editore Antonio Salamanca, pubblicati circa nel 1540. Le opere derivano da disegni di ispirazione raffaellesca attribuiti dal Vasari a Michiel Coxie, che il Maestro del Dado conobbe a Roma nel 1532, epoca in cui si data la serie. I disegni riprendono gli affreschi analoghi nella Loggia della Farnesina, distrutti nel sacco di Roma del 1527. Il mito di Amore e Psiche, narrato da Apuleio all’interno delle Metamorfosi, era stato inserito da Boccaccio nella Genealogiae deorum. La storia lunga e densa di particolari narrativi della bella Psiche, adorata come Venere dai suoi concittadini, per questo invisa alla dea della bellezza ma amata appassionatamente da Amore, imponeva agli artisti e ai loro committenti una scelta piuttosto drastica degli episodi da raffigurare. La serie completa comprende 32 lavori, di cui alcuni opera di Agostino Veneziano. Bellissime prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, tracce di colla al verso, difetti minori, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Bibliografia: Bartsch 39-70; Raphael Invenit pp. 250/257, 1/32. Dimensioni 228x198. Engravings, 1532 circa, from the series Storia di Psiche. Examples in the third state, with the address of Antonio Salamanca, the publisher, printed approximately around the year 1540. These works have been realized after some Raphaelesque drawings, which Vasari ascribed to Michiel Coxie, who met Master Dado in Rome in 1532, the same period of the series. The drawings depict the frescoes in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ciceronis (M. T.)
Parisis apud Simonem Colinaeum* An. MDXXXII. Mense octobri., 1532. 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.

Martyr, Peter
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 p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Maestro del Dado
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 s … [Click Below for Full Description]
