        USE OF ROME

      Germain Hardouyn 1533 [with Calendar covering 1520-32], Paris - 207 x 125 mm. (8 1/8 x 5"). 92 (of 96) unnumbered leaves (without A1, C8, D8, and I1). Remnants of green brocade over old, thin (perhaps contemporary) wooden boards. WITH 12 SMALL MINIATURES AND 17 LARGER ONES (five of the latter full-page, and the others from a half to two-thirds of a page), ALL COLORED BY A CONTEMPORARY HAND (lacking a miniature on each of three missing leaves); ALSO WITH EVERY PAGE (except those featuring a larger miniature) ENCLOSED BY A HAND-PAINTED DECORATIVE OR INHABITED FRAME, the frames always in pairs, with a conventional border of plants, fruits, and geometric shapes on one page and on the opposite page a border constituting an original painting of an outdoor scene, always containing humans and/or animals, MANY OF THE INHABITED FRAMES OF IMMENSE CHARM, even if essentially naïve in style. Front free endleaf with (illegible) early ink inscription. Not in Adams or Brunet. Binding quite worn but still (remarkably) sound, and not without a certain antique charm. A bit of worming to endleaves, front free endleaves slightly loose, margins somewhat thumbed from devout use, paint occasionally rubbed or smudged without loss to decoration, last gathering with light dampstain to lower fore-edge corner (not affecting borders), other lesser defects, but an excellent specimen despite its imperfections, the text generally clean and consistently fresh on creamy vellum, and the richly colored decorations very well preserved, with paint intact. In addition to containing 29 miniatures of various sizes, as intended by the publisher, this is a well-loved Book of Hours of very great charm because of its special added feature--what amounts to 84 original paintings in the form of distinctive borders depicting delightfully imaginative outdoor scenes. However quaint they may appear next to the work of the Limbourg brothers, these frames are remarkably diverting, showing as they do grotesques cavorting with woodland creatures, birds, or fearful humans; dogs dancing on their hind legs to the accompaniment of musicians with drums and pipes; animated hunts featuring hounds, archers, fleeing rabbits, graceful doomed deer, and fierce wild boar; a woman baking bread; a woodsman by a bonfire; a man charming a snake-like creature by playing a horn; a woman shearing sheep; shepherds serenading their flocks with bagpipe tunes; a rooster confronting a fox; Saint Jerome and his lion, and so on. The miniatures enclosed by these borders are themselves of considerable interest, being richly hand colored and lavishly heightened with gold, but their conventional elegance is outshone by the lively, whimsical frames, whose homespun immediacy forges a strong connection between us and the past. We are irresistibly drawn to speculate about the person for whom this was created--no doubt a seriously devout believer, as the book's signs of use indicate, and someone in touch with the elemental dimensions of life. This printed Book of Hours is rare: copies seem to have appeared at auction just twice, in 1969 and 2002. More importantly, in 40 years of bookselling, we have never seen original painted compositions of this sort comprising the borders, as here, in any Book of Hours, manuscript or printed.

        Comedia intitolata i Tre Tiranni,

      recitata in Bologna a N. Signore, et a Cesare.(In fine:) Vinegia, Bernardino de Vitali, 1533, - in-4 (191 x 135 mm.), ff. (72), caratt. corsivo; leg. antica p. perg. rigida, tit. su tassello al dorso. Figura simbolica sul titolo. Precedono il testo la dedica dell'A. al Card. Ippolito de Medici, datata 25 lug. 1533, e un avviso ai lettori di A. Vellutello in cui si "svela l'allegoria della Favola". Prima edizione, rarissima, di questa commedia, in 5 atti in endecasillabi sciolti, che è l'unico testo teatrale del lucchese A. Ricchi, composto all'età di appena diciott'anni. Venne rappresentata a Bologna per le feste dell'incoronazione di Carlo V, alla presenza del Papa Clemente VII e del Duca di Firenze, «che potevano apparire, per una singolare allusione, i protagonisti della commedia. Il titolo è però ispirato al fatto che tre uomini, un vecchio, un giovane e un ricco, nutrono violenta passione per una fanciulla; ma in realtà il vero tiranno di tutta la vicenda è l'amore, che obbligas alla fine i tre personaggi a sottostare a un destino quale essi non si ripromettevano.La commedia, originale, bizzarra, e ricca di ''spirito'' è equilibrata con sapiente decoro e con dosato allegorismo» (Chiesa, Teatro ital. del Cinquecento, n. 198). Vivacemente disegnata risulta la figura del parassita Pilastrino, ''ghiottone e cinico'', avvicinabile, secondo Sanesi (I, p. 271) al Margutte del Pulci. Esemplare fresco e marginoso (lieve restauro all'angolo super. bianco degli ultimi 27 fogli). Allacci p.782. Mango 34. BMC 554. Adams R-484. Clubb 726. Regestein 515. Soleinne IV, 4126.

        DE REBUS OCEANICIS & ORBE NOVO DECADES TRES: QUIBUS QUICQUID DE INVENTIS NUPER TERRIS TRADITUM, NOVARUM RERUM CUPIDUM LECTOREM RETINERE POSSIT, COPIOSE, FIDELITER, ERUDITEQUE DOCETUR EIUSDEM PRAETEREA LEGATIONIS BABYLONICAE LIBRI TRES

      Basel, 1533. Folio. Bound to style in old vellum. Some very light dampstaining in margins. Discreet contemporary marginal annotations throughout. Very good. This esteemed early Americanum contains Martyr's initial three Decades, first published in 1516, supplemented in this edition by an abridgement of the fourth Decade. Martyr, a native of Italy, served the Spanish court in numerous capacities: soldier, priest, courtier, chaplain, teacher, historian, and ambassador. "In 1520 he became secretary to the Council of the Indies and later was appointed by emperor Charles V as the first official chronicler of the Indies. Although Martyr never set foot in the New World, he used his privileged position as a courtier to gather a great wealth of information from documents and through personal interviews. Following the model of the Latin historian Titus Livius, the Decades are volumes written in Latin divided into ten books each. They cover all aspects of the New World - the geography, the natural world...the natives, and all major events after the discovery" - Delgado-Gomez. Based on firsthand information the author was able to access through his position on the Council of the Indies, the Decades include accounts of the discoveries of Columbus, Vespucci, Cabot, and Cortés. In addition there is information concerning the conquest of Mexico and details regarding Spanish settlements in the New World including Florida, Cuba, Hispaniola, and the Caribbean. Included in this edition, as in the 1516 printing, is Martyr's account of his embassy to Egypt in 1501 on behalf of King Ferdinand. A nice copy of this fundamental text by the first Spanish historian of the New World.

        Le Bon Mesnager. Au present volume des prouffitz champestres et ruraulx est traicte du labour des champs, vignes, jardins, arbres de tous especes

      Nicolas Cousteau for Galliot Dupré, Paris 1533 - FIRST EDITION thus. 4to pp. [xvi] 185 [iii]. Lettre B?tard in double column. Title in red and black with grotesque calligraphic initial L, white on black woodcut crible and floriated initials, two woodcut illustrations, woodcut coat-of-arms on final leaf, repairs in blank, engraved armorial bookplate of Damaso G Arrese on pastedown shelf label above. Title fractionally dusty, far lower blank corner repaired, occasional slight browning, the odd marginal mark. A very good clean copy, in early C19th calf, by Koehler, covers bordered with a triple gilt rule, spine with gilt ruled raised bands with compartments gilt ruled to panel designs, edges and inner dentelles gilt, rebacked with original spine laid down a.e.g. Exceptionally rare edition of this free French translation, the first to use this title, of the ‘Opus Ruralium Commodum’ by Pietro de’ Crescenzi, one of the most influential treatises in agronomy and agriculture. The work is illustrated with two fine woodcuts; the first represents the publisher offering his work to Francis I, signed with the Lorraine cross, a garden scene in the background with beehives, and the the second shows a husbandman sowing grain. Translated into many languages, the work was widespread in manuscript from the beginning of the 14th century and in printed editions since 1471. The author, born in Bologna around 1233, was trained both in the Dominican schools and Bologna University, gaining extensive knowledge in logic, medicine, natural sciences and law. His career focused on this last field, and after being appointed ‘iudex’ (judge) he received assignments that took him all over Italy for more than thirty years. During his travels Crescenzi had the chance to visit a great number of rural villas and farms, developing a passion for agronomy and farming. Once retired, he dedicated himself to the project of writing an agronomical treatise in which to convey knowledge and techniques, ancient and modern, theoretical and practical; his efforts gave birth to the ‘Ruralium Commodum’. In his treatise the author often refers to classical and mediaeval authorities, such as Palladio, Varro, Albertus Magnus, Avicenna and the ‘Geoponika’, but he does not hesitate to confute their thesis, adding extensive considerations based upon the practical experience of the many farmers he had known. An interesting aspect of the essay is the public it was conceived for, the 14th century bourgeoisie, especially the class of jurists and notaries who had invested in farms and lands, and needed to obtain a good yield. The work, divided into twelve books, provides a well-structured analysis of all the aspects of running a farm: having identified all the requirements that a good farm must satisfy to be chosen, it enumerates the different kinds of plants and how to cultivate them. The third book is devoted to fields and their produce, while the fourth, examining in depth the cultivation of vine and the practice of winemaking, constitutes an excellent source for the history of mediaeval enology. Chapters from six to nine analyse trees and fruits, herbs, woods and gardens, at chapter nine starts a dissertation upon animals, husbandry and veterinary, followed by a chapter devoted to hunting and falconry. The practical, original approach of the treatise is demonstrated by the last two chapters, which after summarising the contents, reorder them according to the monthly and seasonal farming calendar. Appended to this edition is a thirteenth book on how to plant and maintain trees by "Gorgole de Corne". A wonderful practical treatise, beautifully printed in fine lettre Batard, of great interest for the development of agriculture, enology and farming practice. Not in BM STC Fr. C16th. Brunet II, 417. Schwerdt I, p. 127. Souhart 121. Petit 639. This edition not in Simon. French [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De triangulis planis et sphaericis libri quinque, ... Including : PEURBACH, Georg. Tractatus ... super propositiones Ptolemaei de sinubus & chordis.Basel, [Heinrich Petri, Petrus Pernas, 1561]. With : (2) SANTBECH, Daniel. Problematum astronomicorum et geometricorum sectiones septem, ...Basel, Heinrich Petri, Petrus Pernas, 1561. 3 works in 2 volumes bound as 1. Folio. With many astronomic and geometric woodcut illustrations in text. Blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, possibly contemporary but refurbished in the early 18th-century. Lacking fastenings.

      DSB XI, pp. 348-352; VD 16, M6571 (8 copies); Zinner 2269 and 2273. Rare third, augmented edition, edited by Santbech, of Regiomontanus's works on plane and spherical trigonometry, first published in 1533. His intention was to provide astronomers with the mathematical techniques essential for their studies. The result was the first systematic treatise on plane and spherical trigonometry to be published in the West, establishing trigonometry as an independent discipline. His sine tables give values for every tenth of a degree, a first step in the transition to decimal calculations. The short treatise by Regiomontanus's teacher Peurbach on the computation of sine functions forms an integral part of this Regiomontanus edition. Santbech's work has its own title-page and series of signatures, but it is generally bound with the Regiomontanus and matches it typographically.In very good condition, with only a small marginal hole and a water stain in a few preliminary leaves. The binding is slightly rubbed but still good, with traces of brass fastenings formerly present.

        Stoicheion Bibl. XV Ek ton Theonos Synousion. Proklou bibl. IV

      J. Herwagen, Basel 1533 - EXTENSIVE EARLY ANNOTATIONS AND DIAGRAMS EDITIO PRINCEPS. Folio pp. (vi) 268, 115 (i). Greek letter, title page with printer's device repeated on verso of final leaf. First leaf of text within woodcut ornamental border (early manuscript Greek index in outer margin), woodcut headpieces and initials, printed mathematical diagrams throughout. Very extensive early Greek manuscript annotations and corrections to the whole of the first 61 pages (Book I) and the last 115 (Proclus' commentary in Greek and Latin) with numerous manuscript diagrammatic worked examples, very clear and legible. A very good, crisp, clean, widemargined copy, stamp erased from the verso of title page, in polished North European calf, c. 1700. An important copy of the editio princeps of Euclid's Elements together with the first edition of Proclus' commentary. The systematic and close annotations to Book I and the Proclus commentary, where the text has actually been illustrated by way of precise geometric illustrations, make this an extremely valuable copy in determining how both texts were received and used (and the relationship between them) in the first generations after their publication. It is highly unusual to find either of them consistently annotated in the same (or any) hand from beginning to end and even more so where, as here, the annotations constitute a critical commentary and do not just emphasise or note repetition of the text. Book I is the single most important book, in which Euclid outlines all of the fundamental ideas he will expand on in the rest of the work. The volume provides a rare window into the mathematical thought processes of its day. This is the first edition to have printed illustrations incorporated in the text, rather than in the margins, so it is the first in which extensive marginal worked examples were in fact possible. A work of international, cooperative scholarship, the Greek text was edited by the German Simon Grynaeus, Professor of Greek at Basle, with the assistance of the first Latin translation made directly from the Greek by the Italian Bartolomeo Zamberti, and two Greek manuscripts provided by the Frenchmen Lazare Baif and Jean Ruel. To this Grynaeus added Proclus' commentary on Book I from a manuscript provided by John Claymond, first President of Corpus Christi, Oxford. The work opens with a long dedication to Cuthbert Tunstall, Bishop of Durham, author of the first printed English arithmetic whom Grynaeus had met through Tunstall's good friend Thomas More and to whom Grynaeus presented a copy of the present work in thanks for More's favour during Grynaeus' visit to England. In fact this was the only comprehensive edition of the Greek text until David Gregory's in the early 18th century and it formed the basis of all later editions and translations until the 19th century. "Euclid's 'Elements of Geometry' is the oldest mathematical textbook in the world still in common use today. (.) [It] is a compilations of all earlier Greek mathematical knowledge since Pythagoras, organized into a consistent system so that each theorem follows logically from its predecessor, and in this lies the secret of its success. (.) The 'Elements' remained the common school textbook of geometry for hundreds of years and almost one thousand editions and translations have been published." Printing and the Mind of Man p. 14 on the first Latin edition. Proclus' commentary on Book I, here printed for the first time, is of great value in its own right. First, it is a unique source of information on the geometrical knowledge of the thousand years prior to Euclid, otherwise almost certainly lost to us. Second, it is perhaps the earliest significant contribution to the philosophy of mathematics linking it to all sorts of intellectual speculation; Morrow p. xxxii describes it as "one of the most valuable documents in ancient philosophy." It had not been reprinted up to modern times. The quintessential Renaissance volume and one of the corner stones [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        graecé:] Elementa geometria.

      Basle, Johannes Herwagen, 1533 - Folio (296 x 197 mm), pp [xii] 268; 115 [1] with printer's device on title and last leaf, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text, woodcut border around opening page of the text; title a trifle dust-soiled, small portion of blank corner of first three leaves repaired, a very attractive copy in eighteenth-century French mottled sheep, inscription on title 'Collegii Lemovicensis Societ. Jesu Catal. inscriptus, 1672'. £28,500Editio princeps of Euclid's Elements, and of Proclus' commentary on the first book of the Elements. The first printing of Euclid was a Latin translation in 1482, but the original Greek text had to wait a further fifty-one years before its appearance. The Greek text was edited by Simon Grynaeus, a German Protestant theologian and philologist. The printer Johann Herwagen introduced the innovation in this edition of printing Euclid's diagrams within the text.The commentary by Proclus on the first book of Euclid's Elements is the first printing of the earliest work on the philosophy of mathematics. It was written in the fifth century by the Neoplatonist mathematician and philosopher Proclus who as 'the last great systematiser of the Greek philosophical inheritance . exerted a powerful influence on medieval and Renaissance thought' (Oxford classical dictionary).'Because of his interest in the principles underlying mathematical thought and their relation to ultimate philosophical principles, Proclus' commentary is a notable - and also the earliest - contribution to the philosophy of mathematics. Its numerous references to the views of Euclid's predecessors and successors, many of them otherwise unknown to us, render it an invaluable source for the history of the science' (DSB).Adams E980; Thomas-Sandford 7; Norman 730; Stillwell 210

Diogenis Laertij De vitis, decretis, & responsis celebrium philosophorum Libri decem, nunc primum excusi. Basel: Hieronymus Froben und Nicolaus Episcopius 1533. 4°. Erster griechischer Druck der nach den Schulhäuptern gegliederten Sammlung der Lebensbeschreibungen, Lehren und Aussprüche der berühmt(er)en antiken (griechischen) Philosophen aus der Feder des spätantiken Philsophiehistorikers Diogenes Laertios (aus Laerte in Kleinasien? 3. Jh.), nachdem das Werk in der lateinischen Übersetzung des Ambrogio Traversari aus der ersten Hälfte des 15. Jahrhunderts von ca.1472 bis 1524 schon zwölfmal erschienen war, davon achtmal in Italien, dreimal in Paris und zuletzt 1524, nach einer griechischen Handschrift - wohl der dann auch hier zugrundegelegten - ergänzt und verbessert in Basel (GG 92). Die Handschrift haben die Drucker vom bedeutenden Wittenberger Gräzisten und Hebraisten Matthaeus Aurigallus [Goldhahn ! CS], dessen Schrift über hebräische geographische Namen auch in Basel nachgedruckt worden ist, zur Verfügung gestellt bekommen, worauf sie auch in ihrer Vorrede aus ihrer Offizin vom 14. März 1533 an die studiosi hinweisen, die im übrigen von ihren Druckerplänen und dem Inhalt des vorliegenden Werkes handelt. Täglich wachse ihr Verlangen, beginnen sie, die höheren Studien zu fördern. Hiermit möchten die Möglichkeiten schritthalten, diese Arbeit zum öffentlichen Nutzen der studiosi aufzuwenden. Sie meinten, genügend Gewinn gemacht zu haben, wenn sie feststellten, dass ihre Arbeit den Gelehrten und ernsthaften Studenten willkommen und fruchttragend sei. Doch bei allen Erfolgen dürfe man in diesem Geschäft nicht ruhen. Es solle also aus ihrer Offizin jedes Jahr etwas für die studiosi beider Sprachen Unterhaltsames und Nützliches hervorgehen, jetzt neben anderem das Werk des Diogenes Laertius über Leben, Aussprüche und Lehren der berühmten Philosophen, das in der Übersetzung des Mönchs Ambrosius schon lange in aller Hände sei, eines recht gelehrten Mannes, dem alle philologoi sehr viel verdankten. Diese Sammlung mehr von kurzen Hinweisen als von Aussagen sehr vieler Autoren habe nur ein vielseitig gelehrter und erfahrener Mann ins Lateinische übersetzen können (Curio, der 1524 die Verbesserungen seiner neuen Ausgabe hervorhebt, urteilt hierüber allerdings weniger positiv). Und doch werde man bei einem Vergleich des griechischen mit dem lateinischen Diogenes des Ambrosius leicht den Unterschied zwischen der reinen Quelle und dem immerhin nicht so trüben Tümpel feststellen. Wer jedoch Diogenes Laertius gewesen sei, habe man noch nicht erkennen können. Es gebe keine Vorrede von ihm, sondern er beginne nach Art des Aristoteles sogleich mit dem Stoff, und er werde, soviel sie wüssten, von niemand im Altertum zitiert. Laertius heisse er nach der Stadt Laerte in Kilikien (man weiss auch heute kaum mehr über ihn, auch die Herkunft aus Laerte ist immer noch nur eine Hypothese). Er müsse in den alten Autoren sehr bewandert gewesen sein und zitiere sie gewissenhaft. Das wäre sehr praktisch für die studiosi, wenn alle namentlich aufgeführten Autoren erhalten wären (da man dann noch mehr Ansätze für ausführlichere Lektüre in ihm hätte), obwohl er mehr Eifer auf das Sammeln als Urteil auf die Auswahl und Anordnung verwandt zu haben scheine (dies entspricht schon vollkommen seiner heutigen positiven wie negativen Beurteilung). In den Aussagen der Philosophen sei er knapper als erwünscht und gestehe zuweilen, viel weggelassen zu haben. Im Sammeln von Epigrammen sei er hinwieder zu gewissenhaft, indem er oft seine eigenen Verslein beifüge, die kaum etwas zur Sache täten, so dass man argwöhnen könne, er habe sich sein Werk vorgenommen, um seine kleinen Gedichte der Nachwelt aufzudrängen. Sonderbar aber, dass Ambrosius aus Überdruss an diesem Teil des Werkes, wie seiner unwürdig, verzichtet habe, die zahlreichen Verse metrisch gleich wiederzugeben, obwohl dies nicht wenig zum Schmuck des Stoffes beitrage. Wenn ihm selber Sinn, Übung oder Zeit dazu gefehlt habe, habe er diese Aufgabe an andere delegieren können, was Theodorus Gaza bei der Übersetzung der Schriften des Aristoteles getan haben solle, wie Hausfreunde von ihm berichteten. Dies zu ergänzen dürfte jetzt jedem Gelehrten leichtfallen, da nun der ganze Diogenes griechisch vorliege. In einigen Aussprüchen der Philosophen habe es Obszönes; daher eigneten sich diese Bücher mehr für Gelehrte als für das zarte Alter. Doch diese Unbequemlichkeit müsse man in den meisten Büchern der alten Griechen schlucken: man müsse hier dem Beispiel der Ärzte folgen, die in den selben Gärten und Wiesen Heilpflanzen sammelten, in denen Schierling und Wolfswurz wüchsen. Es sei aber dienlich, auch die Gifte zu kennen, damit man sie erkenne. Die Druckvorlage - exemplar, in diesem Fall eines Erstdrucks eindeutig eine Handschrift - habe ihnen der berühmte Professor des Hebräischen und Griechischen Matthaeus Aurigallus zukommen lassen, worauf sie hinweisen müssten, damit auch er seinen Anteil am Ruhm erhalte. Wenn die studiosi diesen Druck so redlich aufnehmen sollten, wie sie ihn dienstbeflissen zur Verfügung stellten, würden sie freudiger Grösseres anpacken, das auch mehr Nutzen bringe (im selben Jahr sind bei Froben und Episcopius u.a. die griechischen Erstdrucke der Geographie des Ptolemaeus [GG 277] und des Periplus Arrians [GG 250] erschienen).

        [LIVES OF THE FAMOUS PHILOSOPHERS, in Greek.]... Diogenis Laertij De vitis, decretis, & responsis celebrium philosophorum Libri decem, nunc primum excusi

      Basel: Hieronymus Froben e Nikolaus Episcopius, 1533. The Editio Princeps, the first printing of the work in the original Greek. Greek and roman type. Woodcut printer?s device of Johann Froben by Hans Holbein der Jünger [The Younger] on the title-page and on fol. CC4v (Heitz-Bernoulli 50). Woodcut decorated headpieces, decorated and animated initials on black ground, from different alphabets designed by Holbein; on fol. a1r 8-line initial, showing Heraclitus and Democritus, from the capital Latin alphabet of May 1520 drawn by Holbein and by Jacob Faber (cfr. Hollstein?s German, xivB, n. 119). 4o (210x146 mm). Collation: 1, 2, 3, 4, a-z4, A-Z4, aa-zz4, AA-CC4 (fols. 1v, CC4r blank). [8], 573, [3] pp. , In a very rarely encountered contemporary binding of Dutch blind-tooled leather over wooden boards. The covers are framed by two borders of blind tooled fillets, a floral tool at each corner; the central panel is divided into diamond designs with rosettes on the upper cover and fleur-de-lys on the rear. Turn?"ins and cords fixed at the inner boards. Antique spine and clasps renewed at a somewhat later date and accomplished with the greatest skill. The guard leaves are composed of two bifolia from a 14th-century manuscript breviary. [8], 573, [3] pp. A beautiful and fine broad-margined copy in a wonderful contemporary binding, faint waterstaining to the inner corner of the first quires, a minor repair to the gutter of the first leaves, two tiny wormholes in the last three quires. Provenance: John Alfred Spranger (1889-1968; book-plate on front pastedown and stamp on title-page). EXTREMELY RARE FIRST PRINTING OF THE EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THIS REMARKABLY IMPORTANT BOOK AND A COPY WHICH IS OF THE VERY FINEST STATE AND CONDITION. The editio princeps of Diogenes Laertius? Lives of the Famous Philosophers, is the most important source of our knowledge in the history of Greek philosophy, from Thales to Pyrrho. The text was known only in the Latin translation by Ambrogio Traversari (1386-1439), which made its first appearance in print in Rome around 1472 and which was widely reprinted during the fourteenth and the first decades of the sixteenth century. This is the first printing of the book in its original language. The edition is dedicated by the typographers Froben and Episcopius to the scholars, and in their epistle they declare their publishing plan: to print at least a work per year able to combine usefulness and pleasure. The text follows a manuscript provided by the professor of Greek and Hebrew at the University of Wittenberg Matthaeus Goldhahn (1480-1553), called Aurigallus, probably a copy of the codex Raudnitzianus Lobkowicensis vi.F.c.38, at the time preserved in Komotau (Bohemie), in the house of the politician Bohuslav Lobkowitz von Hassenstein (c. 1460-1510), and presently in the Library Národní Knihovna of Prague.

        FLAMINII NOBILII LUCENSIS LOGICAE FACULTATIS IN PISANO GYMNASIO DOCTORIS QUAESTIONES LOGICAE. Ad Cosmum Medicem florentinorum, et senensium ducem.

      Prima edizione. Opera dedicata al Granduca Cosimo de' Medici. Testo latino. Cm.15,3x10. Pg.191, (1). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Fresco esemplare. Flaminio De Nobili (Lucca, 1533 - 1591), scrittore, teologo e filosofo di origine garfagnina (l'antico nome di famiglia era Della Pieve), fu allievo di Aonio Paleario, e quindi compì gli studi universitari di medicina e filosofia a Pisa e a Ferrara. Fu a Lucca Priore in San giovanni, Rettore in San Pietro Somaldi e Canonico in Santa Maria Forisportam, e stretto corrispondente del Tasso, con cui collaborò a lungo addirittura nella revisione della "Gerusalemme liberata". La sua opera prima fu il "Trattato dell'amore humano", scritta a Ferrara nel 1556 e stampata l'anno successivo dal Busdrago. Il presente trattato filosofico, qui in prima edizione, vide anch'esso la luce per la cura dei tipi del nobile Vincenzo Busdraghi (Lucca, 1524 - 1601), titolare di una celebre impresa tipografica, attiva nella sua città natale dal 1549 fino al 1605, dopo essere stata rilevata dal figlio. Usando come marca lo stemma di famiglia, un dragone alato con volto da vecchio, pubblicò tra l'altro preziose edizioni del Pontano, dell'Interiano, del Bandello e di Lorenzo il Magnifico, oltre a Statuti di magistrature lucchesi. Le "Quaestione logicae" furono ristampate nel 1563.

First editions of two complementary works, in matching format, similar layout and beautifully and extensively illustrated, devoted to the lives, history and military careers of the three most important stadtholders and Princes of Orange to the time of publication, including a great deal of information on the Eighty Years' War and the Dutch conquests, trade and commerce in the Americas in general and Brazil in particular. In the present copy the engraved title-pages, portraits, coat of arms and illustrations are all beautifully coloured by a contemporary hand, most of them highlighted in gold. The three protagonists are William the Silent of Nassau (1533-1584), leader of the Dutch revolt against Spain and spiritual father of the independent Dutch Republic that took form soon after his assassination, and his two sons Maurits (Maurice) (1567-1625) and Frederick Hendrik (1584-1647) who succeeded him as Princes of Orange and Dutch head of State.Something must have gone wrong with the printing or colouring of Maurits's portrait, for one can see that the portrait was printed on the leaf, but another print from the same plate has been pasted over it as a cancel.With a small tear in the foot of one map and water stains at the foot of the leaves in both works, but otherwise in very good condition. The bindings have cracks in the joints. Beautifully coloured copies of two magnificently illustrated works on the Princes of Orange and Dutch activities in Brazil and elsewhere.

Minor dampstain to fore-edge slightly affecting margins, some spotting and toning to contents, slight crease to edge of second volvelle. Excellent condition with all volvelles in working order. First enlarged edition with the addition of the Libellus de locorum describendorum ratione, & de eorum distantiis inveniendis of Gemma Frisius, in which Frisius first described the principal of triangulation for use in surveying. The Cosmographia of Petrus Apianus was one of the most popular books of the century. With material derived from the Luculentissima quaedam terrae totius descriptio of Johann Schöner (Nuremberg, 1515), Apianus gave vivid descriptions of the newly discovered lands in the New World. The other popular feature was the volvelles designed to help with practical mathematical problems relating to time-telling, the calendar, and astronomy and astrology. The first edition was published at Landshut, 1524, with three volvelles. Apianus' book was then corrected by the noted cartographer-mathematician-physician Gemma Frisius for the second edition of 1529, in which a fourth volvelle showing the phases of the moon was included. An abridged version called Cosmographiae introductio, was published in Ingolstadt, 1531, containing a number of woodcut illustrations but no volvelles.

        Elementa Geometriae

      [:in Greek]. Woodcut printer's device on title & verso of final leaf, first page of text with a woodcut decorative border, & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l., 268; 115, [1] pp. Folio, 18th cent. mottled calf (upper blank margin of title -- 2.7 cm -- renewed & title carefully backed at an early date), double gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Basel: J. Herwagen, 1533. Editio princeps in Greek of Euclid's Elements, one of the great books in the history of the exact sciences. This is also the first Euclid to have the diagrams inset in the text. The Greek text was edited by Simon Grynaeus, professor of Greek at Basel University. Grynaeus used two manuscripts -- one sent by Lazarus Bayfius from Venice and the other supplied by John Claymond, president of Magdalen and later of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. The Elements occupy 268 pages, followed by 115 pages containing the four books of the commentary of Proclus on the first book of the Elements. This commentary "is of considerable value for the study of ancient Greek geometry because of the historical information which it contains, derived from the lost works of Eudemos...and Geminos."­Sarton, I, p. 403. Grynaeus dedicated this edition to Cuthbert Tunstall, Bishop of Durham and the author of the first English arithmetic. A fine crisp copy. Thomas-Stanford 7. .

        Historia Ecclesiastica quam dominus Gaufridus Boussardus curavit.

      Lyon, Benoît Bonyn for Jacopo & Francesco Giunta, 6 September 1533. - Small 4to. [20] + 96 leaves. Lettre bâtarde. Text in 2 columns. Title in red & black within ornamented woodcut border. Woodcut initials. Giunta device on last (otherwise blank) page. Modern morocco. Rare Lyons edition of this Latin redaction of one of the prime sources on the early Christian Church by Geoffroy Boussard (1439-1522), professor of theology at the Sorbonne, and university chancellor in 1487. The original Greek text was first published only eleven years later by Estienne (1544). Eusebius Bishop of Caesarea (165-340 AD), known as “Father of Church History”, discusses the lives of the first successive bishops and their seas, the writings of Christian theologians, the great heresies, the Jews, and the early martyrs. Book I contains a detailed life of Jesus Christ; book X closes with Christ’s death. The editor, Boussard, represented his university at the Council of Milan in 1511; he also published treatises on the celibacy of priests (1505), and an interpretation of the Seven Penitential Psalms (1519). Adams records no copy of this edition in Cambridge University libraries. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Greek:] Elementa geometriae.

      Johann Herwagen,, Basle: 1533 - Folio. [vi], 268, 115 pp. With woodcut device on title and colophon, decorated woodcut border to first page of text and numerous woodcut diagrams. Contemporary English calf, neatly rebacked, remains of ties, later endpapers. A very good copy. Editio princeps of Euclid's Elements and of the important commentary by Proclus on the first book. The first printing of Euclid in 1482 was a Latin translation from an Arabic manuscript, but the original Greek text did not appear for a further half-century. The Greek text was edited by Simon Grynaeus, a German Protestant theologian and philologist. This edition is also important for the innovation of geometrical diagrams within the text, rather than in the margins as had been the case with the earlier printed editions.The commentary by the Neoplatonist mathematician and philosopher Proclus on the first book of the Elements is the earliest extant criticism of Euclid's fifth postulate on the existence of parallel lines, the study of which led, after a further fifteen hundred years of effort, to the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry by Gauss, Bolyai and Lobachevsky. It is also the first printing of the earliest work on the philosophy of mathematics. "Because of his interest in the principles underlying mathematical thought and their relation to ultimate philosophical principles, Proclus' commentary is a notable - and also the earliest - contribution to the philosophy of mathematics. Its numerous references to the views of Euclid's predecessors and successors, many of them otherwise unknown to us, render it an invaluable source for the history of science" (DSB).

      Paris, Simon de Colines 1533. - Folio. (36) lvs., 101 lvs., (1) leaf (blank); (10), 42; (10), 53, (3), 13 lvs. Lacking zhe last blank leaf. With a large rinter's device ("Tempus" device 2 [see Renouard p. 104] and numerous woodcut initials.Contemporary calf (splitting and rubbed, the edges, foot and head of spine have been repaired, upper hinge torn) with some blind-stamping and gold embossed ownership mark on both covers.Second Colines edition, and simultaneously the 2nd edition of the zoological writings of Aristotle in this compactness and completeness. Schweiger and Hoffmann record a Colines edition in 1522 (apart of those in 1524 and 1533) but that one seems to be a mistake: verifiable in 1522 is only an edition with Aristotle's ethical works by Colines. With the issue of the collected works presented here Aristotle (384 - 322 B.C.) can be considered "The founder of biology and . first of all Zoologists". There is a wide variety of themes, as shown from the following titles: "The origination of animals", "the history [actually types] of animals", "The motion of animals.", "Anatomy ." The fact that Aristotle left the research into botany to his friend and pupil, Theophrast, resulted in the first three works of Aristotle generally being issued together with the works of Theophrast in the Incunabula editions and in numerous editions throughout the 16th century and only relatively later on were the zoological works of the philosopher issued together. Title recto and verso with owner's markings (the recto partly removed using sharp knife, causing small holes in the paper). Later end-papers (original vellum strips preserved). Title recto and verso with ownership entries (recto party erased causing paper defects without touching text / device). Free end-papers, margins of title, first leaves and last leaf with paper defects due to humidity; outer corner of 1 leaf teared off.
