        De re uxoria libelli duo. De re uxoria libri duo.

      - Haganoae, Seceriana [Haguenau, Jean Secer], 1533 (au colophon). Petit in-8, plein vélin moderne à la Bradel, dos orné d'un petit fer aldin au centre et daté en pied, titre doré, tranches rouges, 52 feuillets non paginés accompagnés de 3 lettrines, grande marque de l'imprimeur au colophon. Précoce édition, imprimée à Haguenau chez Jean Secer, de cet ouvrage composé à Florence en 1416 pour les noces de Laurent de Médicis, l'un des principaux traités de la période sur la question du mariage et du statut de la femme. L'ouvrage, très populaire au XVIe siècle, fut traduit dans les principales langues européennes. Il est l'une des sources de Jean Bodin. Envisageant l'institution familiale dans ses relations avec le fonctionnement de la cité, Barbaro examine la nature du mariage du point de vue social et légal. Le deuxième livre est plus spécifiquement consacré aux devoirs de la femme et à son rôle auquel il accorde un rôle central. "With his emphasis in the 'De re uxoria' on the family as the basic unit of state and society, and on the duties of wives in this context, Barbaro created a new literary genre. Aided by his studies of works from Greek antiquity, he gave the conventional treatise on family life a new twist (.). The 'De re uxoria' stands as a pioneering work on the subject of love, marriage, and family in the early modern period" (B.G. Kohl & R.G. Witt. ed., 'The Earthly Republic. Italian Humanists on Government and Society', Manchester, 1978, p. 186-187). "Petit traité rare et recherché pour sa singularité" (Osmont). (Panzer, 7, 111, n° 359 et 9, 472, n°359. VD16 B 356). Quelques piqûres, plus prononcées aux derniers feuillets. Bon exemplaire.

        Recanetum de musica aurea

      Romae Apud Valerium Doricum 1533 - FIRST EDITION Folio ff (iv) 93 (i) last blank. Roman letter, woodcut initials t.p. with printer's device of Pegasus, full-page woodcut of Phoebus/Apollo with his lyre surrounded by musicians and scene beneath of author presenting his pupils with violets, two full-page woodcuts depicting Guidonian hands, 13 full-page woodcut diagrams including music, 9 half-page diagrams concerning mode and tempo, and extensive woodcut music throughout. T.p margins restored, faded contemp. ex libris erased at head and case no. at either side of device, a few fore edges with small repair (no loss); a good, clean copy in clear impression. Modern red morocco by Laurenchet, covers triple-riled in gilt, gilt compartments on spine, a.e.g. FIRST EDITION, elegantly printed by Valerio Dorico, the only music printer in Rome for twelve years following the Sack of the city. Stephano Vanneo (1493-1540) was an Augustinian monk and choirmaster from Recanati, and his treatise on the 'golden' music from the monastery there is one of the best and most comprehensive of its time. Divided into three books, the first twenty or so pages provide historical context for the study of music; its place among the liberal arts; and its legendary discovery by Pythagoras, who noticed different tones produced from the beating of a blacksmith's hammers. The book quickly turns to practical instruction, with woodcuts depicting both front and back of the famous Hand of Guido of Arezzo (991-1050). These hands are the basis of modern musical notation, and are also used to teach sight-singing. Their illustration here was the most extended to date, going a full octave above and below what was normaly depicted. The rest of book one details intonation, intervals, and modes, and book two shows how these are written, reviewing the complete system of mensural notation that was used until around 1600. The final book discusses counterpoint for alto, bass and tenor, listing the rules of harmony and inversion in order of difficulty. Most interesting are the concluding chapters on the quality of the tone of voice, and the 'tying up' of words together in song. Polyphonic music such as counterpoint had been the object of criticism since 1322, when Pope John XXII attacked the style as 'lascivious', because it was rooted in secular music. The issue remained controversial during the Reformation, not only because of its links to lewd 'parody masses' but also because Protestants warned that the overly ornate layering of sound obscured the meaning of the words sung. A little over a decade after the publication of this textbook the Council of Trent prohibited all polyphonic singing that was not to the rigid standard of the so-called 'Roman School of Music', of which this book is a part. Favouring clear, distinctly pronounced words, the perfection of the School was the Missa Papae Marcelli of Palestrina, sung at the Papal Coronation mass well into the 20th century.

        [Opera] Cornelius Tacitus exacta cura recognitus et emendatus. Copiosus index rerum, locorum et personarum . . . Venice, Aldus, 1534 (colophon: heirs of Aldus Manutius and Andrea Torresani d'Asola, November 1534). Small 4to (21.5×13.5 cm). With the woodcut Aldine anchor device on title-page, repeated on the last page. Dark blue-green gold-tooled polished half sheepskin (ca. 1853), with the initials of the owner "L.L.B." (=Letterio Lizio Bruno) on the spine.

      Ahmanson-Murphy 275; Dibdin II, p. 450; Edit 16 27227; Renouard, pp. 112-113, no. 8; Sandys, Hist. class. scholarship II, p. 263.; USTC 857890 First and only Aldine edition of the works of Tacitus. It is based on the best of the famous Basel Tacitus editions by Beatus Rhenanus, printed and published by Froben at Basel in 1533 in folio format. The title-page notes that it has been carefully revised and corrected. It is much better than the first edition of Tacitus's complete works published by Beroaldi at Rome in 1515. Beatus Rhenanus of Schlettstadt (1485-1547), friend and biographer of Erasmus, edited many Patristic and classical authors. The editorial work and notes for his Tacitus text are among his most important contributions to scholarship. The text owes much to his corrections and he was generally distinguished for his fidelity to the readings of the manuscripts and for his critical caution in admitting conjectures.An early owner's name on the title-page has been partly erased, but an inscription dated 17 November 1853 at the foot of the title-page gives the owner as Letterio Lizio Bruno and another 1853 inscription by him (leaf 202r) adds "in Messina". Letterio Lizio Bruno (1837-1908), a well-known Italian poet and author in Messina and later in Palermo, is considered one of the most elegant writers of Sicily. The head and fore-edge margins of the title-page have been restored, there are some water stains and marginal restorations to a few other leaves and occasional minor browning, but otherwise in good condition. The binding is slightly rubbed and some of the sewing has broken at the hinges, so that the book block is only loosely attached to the boards. One of the best early Tacitus editions, the only one printed or published by the Aldine printing office.

        Bartoli De Saxoferrato. Prima Super Digesto Veteri. Inest Huic Volumini Commentariorum Bartoli .

      Sebastiani Gryphii Germanii, Lugduni 1533 - 214 leaves, title in red and black. Evidently an unrecorded copy. Harvard Law Library has a similar copy with 162 leaves. Princeton which has a large collection by Gryphius does not appear to have this title. Also instead of the standard printer's device of the Gryphon, here he has a wood cut of Bartoli lecturing to three rows of students with cherub borders and at bottom of border each cherub is slaying a gryphon with a sword. Sebastian Gryphius the printer was famous for his works on law and administration in Gothic script. The year after this volume he began using Roman type and he became the great printer of the early French Renaissance though his work did not have the clarity of Aldus. This work represents a rare variation in the paleography of the era and although there were at least two different printers who assisted Gryphius, we could not determine which style was represented here. Bound in full vellum raised bands with ropes for bands showing and with some vellum loss to spine, corners with wear or chew marks, some worming to edges of vellum penetrating only to outer margins of leaves, early if not contemporary marginal notes and textual notations all in Latin, in brown ink. Size: Folio (in 8s)

        David Georgen ausz Holand deß Ertzkätzers warhafftige Histori, seines Lebens, unnd verfürischen Leer, . . . Basel, (colophon: printed by Hieronymus Curio, September 1559), 1559. Small 4to. With 2 large woodcut gothic decorated initials (56 mm). Set in schwabacher types with incidental fraktur and the year of publication in Roman numerals. Disbound.

      Van der Linde 247; BMC STC German, p. 70; USTC 628444 (citing VD16); VD 16, D319; cf. Adams J-333 (Latin ed.). First German edition, of a rare and important early biography of the famous Dutch heretic and Anabaptist David Joris. Banished from Holland for his overt rejection of the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church, Joris fled to Friesland, where he met the Anabaptists. He joined them in 1533 after his baptism and tried to appease the disputing parties within the sect. Ecstatic and susceptible to flattery, he declared himself a prophet with a divine mission and supernatural powers. Soon he got many followers, but he and his group were also severely persecuted. In 1554, he came to live in Basle after five years on the run from the Dutch authorities. There he lived with his family as a rich and respected citizen under the name of Jan van Brugge, pretending to be a Reformed refugee while he still kept in touch with his followers in the Southern Netherlands. The present biography is especially valuable for Joris's life in Basle (1554-1556). With a small hole in 1 leaf, waterstains in the fore-edge and head margins, running slightly into the text, but still in good condition. Disbound and some of the sewing lost, so that 1 quire is detatched.

        Cosmographia introductio : cum quibusdam geometriae ac astronomiae principus ad eam rem necessariis

      Venice: Io. Antonius da Sabbio & others, July, 1533. Small octavo, with a large woodcut on title-page of an astrolabe enclosing the world, full-page astronomical woodcut on the verso, numerous illustrations and diagrams in the text, printer's device on last leaf; a few stains but a very good copy in old half red calf. Renaissance cosmography. Essential cosmographical text of the renaissance: the German humanist Apian, better known by the latinised form of his name as Apianus, produced a book in 1524 that became one of the most popular of all scientific works, an early geographical text with numerous woodcuts of the earth, the Zodiac, and examples of determining longitude and latitude. Its popularity was quite extraordinary by comparison with other popular books of the period: over nearly a century Apianus' text went through more than forty-five editions, in four languages, published in seven cities, by at least eighteen publishers. This rare early edition is an example of the popular shortened format of this widely-studied work on cosmography. It neatly summarises the Renaissance world view, and includes several references to Vespucci's discovery of America. The book is notable for 'the division of the earth into climatic zones, the uses of parallels and meridians, the determination of latitude, several methods for determining longitude including that of lunar distance, the use of trigonometry to determine distances, several types of map projections, and many other topics…' (Karrow). Apianus' work in its full-length form was first published in 1524; it first appeared in this popular format in Antwerp in 1532 or 1533. This is the second edition in this form, and the first of at least seven such editions produced in Italy in the sixteenth century.

J. Doc. dominum Hieronymum Gigantem Forosemproniensem locis suis insertis: cum Repertorio noviter summa diligentia elaborato.

      LYONE, J. WYT, 1533Legatura originale in piena pergamena rigida con titolo manoscritto al piatto anteriore e al dorso da antica mano; al contropiatto anteriore, ex - libris della famiglia Lantieri di Gorizia. 30 carte non numerate compreso il frontespizio con titolo in rosso e nero all'interno di elegante raffigurazione silografata, nota di possesso manoscritta da antica mano negli spazi tra i numeri della data di pubblicazione; CCCCLXXXI carte numerate. Testo in latino su due colonne, numerosissimi capilettera silografati nel testo. Azzone fu allievo del celebre glossatore bolognese Giovanni Bassiano e spesso si vide il suo nome accompagnato a quello di Ugolino del Prete, suo collega di insegnamento. La Summa è l'opera principale di Azzone, ebbe un immenso successo e rappresentò il manuale di diritto romano per eccellenza nel Medioevo. La prima versione, Summa super Codicem, fu scritta tra il 1208 e il 1210 e fu erroneamente attribuita a Rogerio. La conoscenza dell'opera era considerata obbligatoria per poter accedere al collegio dei dottori di legge, tanto che negli ambienti giuridici venne coniato un motto: "Chi non ha Azzo, non vada a palazzo", La Summa è l'esposizione sistematica di tutto il diritto civile sulla base e secondo l'ordine di quelle due parti del Corpus iuris che la scuola dei glossatori aveva fin dalle origini considerato le più adatte a questo genere di lavoro: il Codice, ridotto ai primi nove dei dodici libri, come sempre nella tradizione medievale, e le Istituzioni. Azzone presenta le due parti come un unico programma, di fatto unificandole. L'autore, consapevole della confusione generata nel diritto dalla somma di glosse che sommergevano il testo originale, promette agli studenti, agli "amabiles et praeclarissimi socii", che nella sua opera non troveranno "nihil obscurum, nihil dubitabile, nihilque contrarium legibus". Definitiva è, nel suo genere, la stessa Summa, che concluse una nutrita serie di somme uscite dalla scuola dei glossatori civilisti e fece cadere in dimenticanza tutte le precedenti. La Summa subì aggiunte fin dal sec. XIII, con tre appendici. Esemplare In discrete condizioni, vistose mancanze alla pergamena che ricopre il dorso con nervi rilevati scoperti, qualche pagina lievemente ossidata, piccole traforature di tarlo da pagina 226 a 245 e da pagina 444 a 460, all'interno del margine superiore senza perdita di testo. Altrimenti un buon esemplare.

Mit grosser Holzschnitt-Druckermarke ("Tempus" Marke 1 [Abb. s. Renouard S. 104]) und vielen Initialen in Holzschnitt.Kalbsleder d. Zt. (rissig, berieben, Bezugsfehlstellen an Kanten und Kopf sowie Fuss des Rückens ergänzt, Vordergelenk angerissen) mit sparsamer Blindpressung und goldgeprägtem Supralibros auf beiden Deckeln. Wohl zweite Colines-Ausgabe, zugleich zweite Ausgabe der zoologischen Schriften des Aristoteles in dieser Geschlossenheit und Vollständigkeit. Eine seltene Ausgabe. Schweiger und Hoffmann führen neben den Colines-Ausgaben 1524 und 1533 eine von 1522 an, die sich aber sonst nicht verifizieren lässt (es gibt aus diesem Jahr einen Colines-Druck mit den Ethiken des Aristoteles). Mit den hier versammelten Schriften gilt Aristoteles (384 - 322 v. Chr.) als "Begründer der Biologie und... Urvater aller Zoologen" (DNP 1, Sp. 1139/1140). Die Thematik ist weit gespannt, wie die folgenden Überschriften schon andeuten: "Über die Entstehung der Tiere", "Die Geschichte [gemeint: die Arten] der Tiere", "Die Fortbewegung d. T.", "Die Anatomie d. T." Die Tatsache, dass Aristoteles die Erforschung der Botanik seinem Freund und Schüler Theophrast überliess, hatte zur Folge, dass in den Inkunabelausgaben und in zahlreichen des 16. Jahrhunderts in der Regel die ersten drei aristotelischen Schriften mit den Werken Theophrasts gekoppelt und erst relativ spät alle zoologischen Werke des Philosophen zusammengeführt wurden. Spätere Spiegel, unter Verwendung wohl ursprünglicher Pergament-Streifen. Titel recto und verso mit Besitzereinträgen (der recto teils mitttels Rasur gelöscht, dadurch kleinere Papierdurchbrüche; Text / Druckermarke nicht betroffen).

        De re uxoria libelli duo. De re uxoria libri duo.

      Haganoae, Seceriana [Haguenau, Jean Secer], 1533 (au colophon).. Petit in-8, plein velin moderne a la Bradel, dos orne d'un petit fer aldin au centre et date en pied, titre dore, tranches rouges, 52 feuillets non pagines accompagnes de 3 lettrines, grande marque de l'imprimeur au colophon. Precoce edition, imprimee a Haguenau chez Jean Secer, de cet ouvrage compose a Florence en 1416 pour les noces de Laurent de Medicis, l'un des principaux traites de la periode sur la question du mariage et du statut de la femme. L'ouvrage, tres populaire au XVIe siecle, fut traduit dans les principales langues europeennes. Il est l'une des sources de Jean Bodin. Envisageant l'institution familiale dans ses relations avec le fonctionnement de la cite, Barbaro examine la nature du mariage du point de vue social et legal. Le deuxieme livre est plus specifiquement consacre aux devoirs de la femme et a son role auquel il accorde un role central. "With his emphasis in the 'De re uxoria' on the family as the basic unit of state and society, and on the duties of wives in this context, Barbaro created a new literary genre. Aided by his studies of works from Greek antiquity, he gave the conventional treatise on family life a new twist (...). The 'De re uxoria' stands as a pioneering work on the subject of love, marriage, and family in the early modern period" (B.G. Kohl & R.G. Witt. ed., 'The Earthly Republic. Italian Humanists on Government and Society', Manchester, 1978, p. 186-187). Petit traite rare et recherche pour sa singularite" (Osmont). (Panzer, 7, 111, n° 359 et 9, 472, n°359. VD16 B 356).

Marguerite de Valois fit de cette 'Violette de l'Ame' son livre de chevet.

      1533. An Important Contribution To The Early-Modern Recovery of Roman Law Du Rivail, Aymar [1491-1558]. Civilis Historiae Juris, Sive in XII Tab. Leges Commentariorum Libri Quinq, Iam Denuo Diligenter Recogniti. Historiae Item Juris Pont. Liber Singularis. Mainz: [Apud Ioanem Schoeffer], 1533. [xvi], 357 pp. Octavo (6" x 4"). Later quarter calf over patterned paper boards, red and black lettering pieces to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate rubbing to extremities, a few small scuffs to boards, joints just starting at ends, crack between front free endpaper and following endleaf. Title printed within attractive woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials, large printer device to verso of final text leaf. Toning, light soiling to title page, internally clean. Attractive. * Later edition. Du Rivail, who studied under Alciati, was a humanist jurist, historian and member of the parlement of Grenoble. As Peter Stein has observed, Civilis Historiae Juris, a set of commentaries on the Twelve Tables, was an important contribution to the early-modern recovery of Roman law from the obfuscations of the glossators and Commentators. It was first published in 1515 and went through four subsequent editions, the final in 1539. The laws identified erroneously or questionably as those of the Twelve Tables are included as well. The final section is a historical sketch of canon law entitled Historia Pontificii Iuris Liber Singularis. "He concentrated on the main account of the 'origin of law' in the Digest, the long fragment...from Pomponius, and supplemented it by reference to Livy's account of the early republic. Du Rivail sought to reconstruct the contents of the Twelve Tables, and, since that legislation was said to be inspired by the Athenian laws of Solon, he included all known provisions of Solon's law (Stein). 3 copies of this edition located in North America (at the National Library of Canada, UC-Berkeley Law School and the Library of Congress). Another copy located at Harvard Law School. Stein, Roman Law in European History 78. Adams, Catalogue of Books Printed on the Continent of Europe, 1501-1600 R592..

        Ian Hamilton's March

      Longmans, Green, and Co. Here is a collector-worthy copy of the U.S. first edition of Churchill's fifth book - the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill was first elected to Parliament the same year his two Boer War books - London to Ladysmith via Pretoria and Ian Hamilton's March - were published.  This American edition is considerably more scarce than the British; the publisher issued just 1533 copies (against 5003 British first edition, first printing copies).  The edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine.  Here is an unusually well preserved, near-fine example for collectors.  The red cloth binding is highly unusual in that it suffers almost none of the scuffing and uneven coloration endemic to this edition.  Most notably the spine remains absolutely uniform in color with bright gilt and only trivial wear limited to the spine corners.  There is slight overall soiling, but this does not detract from the overall appearance and particularly impressive shelf presentation.  The contents remain clean with no spotting.  The sole previous ownership mark noted is the remnant of a mostly removed bookplate at the rear pastedown.  The top edge gilt remains bright.  The fore edge is modestly age-toned.  The binding is very slightly loose at the front gutter but not enough to be called tender, with no damage to the binding integrity and no splitting of the endpapers.  A very handsome copy, scarce thus.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61.

Two parts in one small octavo volume. ciiii, clxxiii, [2, "The fautes escaped in the pryntynge"] leaves. Bound without final blank leaf.

An excellent copy of this extremely rare work. From the library of William Foyle with his bookplate. Housed in a custom quarter brown morocco clamshell. Only one other copy has appeared at auction in the last 25 years, the Bute-Martin copy, in which the second part was somewhat wormed and restored, costing a few letters per page. . "Thomas More's Debellation of Salem and Bizance is one of his most intriguing works.John Guy convincingly establishes that both St. German's Salem and Bizance and More's counterblast were written in the context of Henry VIII's attempt to secure a political revolution by altering the balance of power between church and state.This at last reveals the Debellation in it's true light , as a document that embodies the struggle between adherents of the old and new orders at a stage when the outcome was by no means certain (Alistair Fox's review of Volume 10 of The Yale Edition of the complete Works of St. Thomas More, edited by John Guy, in the Catholic Historic Review). "In 'The Apologye of Syr Thomas More, Knyght, made by him Anno 1533 after he had geuen over the office of Lord Chancellour of Englande' ([published] by W. Rastell), 1533.More defended himself against charges of undue length and personal abuse in his controversial writing; he renews the attack on Tindal and Barnes and on Christopher St. German, the anonymous author of 'The Pacifier of the Division between Spirituality and the Temporality,' and defends a rigorous treatment of heretics. This was answered by St. German in 'Salem and Bizance,' to which More retorted within a month in the 'Debellacyon of Salem and Bizance'.another vindication of the severe punishment of heresy" (D.N.B.). "Probably in 1532 [legal writer and contraversialist Christopher Saint-German] issued, anonymously, his 'Treatise concernynge the division betwene the spiritualite and the temporaltie'.In it Saint-German lays the blame of the division on the clergy. It is said to have been commended to Sir Thomas More for its moderation, in contrast to his own intemperance of language. Early in 1533 More made a vigorous attack upon it in his 'Apology', referring to the author as 'the pacifier'. This provoked a reply from Saint-German entitled 'A Dialogue betwixte two Englishmen, whereof one was called Salem and the other Bizance,' which ended the controversy" (D.N.B.). Gibson, More, 50.

        Ian Hamilton's March

      Longmans, Green & Co. Here is a superlative copy for collectors - as good as they come.  This is Churchill's fifth book and the second of his two books based on his newspaper despatches sent from the front in South Africa. It was during this conflict that Churchill was captured by the Boers. His daring escape made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career.  The publisher issued just 1533 copies of this first American edition, only printing (against 5003 British first edition, first printing copies).  The American edition is bound in pebble grain red cloth that proved quite susceptible to blotchy wear and soiling, particularly on the spine.  Offered here is a superlative, collector-grade example.  The red cloth binding is clean, tight, and square with vivid, unfaded color and bright gilt.  We note only very slight wear at the spine ends and corners.  The contents are likewise exceptional - crisp, clean, bright, and tight.  We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks of any kind.  All maps and plans are present and perfectly preserved, as is the frontispiece and tissue guard.  The top edge gilt remains bright with only slight scuffing.  The fore and bottom edges remain clean.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A8.2, Woods/ICS A5(ca), Langworth p.61

Mainz: [Apud Ioanem Schoeffer], 1533. [xvi], 357 pp. Octavo (6" x 4"). Later quarter calf over patterned paper boards, red and black lettering pieces to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate rubbing to extremities, a few small scuffs to boards, joints just starting at ends, crack between front free endpaper and following endleaf. Title printed within attractive woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials, large printer device to verso of final text leaf. Toning, light soiling to title page, internally clean. Attractive. * Later edition. Du Rivail, who studied under Alciati, was a humanist jurist, historian and member of the parlement of Grenoble. As Peter Stein has observed, Civilis Historiae Juris, a set of commentaries on the Twelve Tables, was an important contribution to the early-modern recovery of Roman law from the obfuscations of the glossators and Commentators. It was first published in 1515 and went through four subsequent editions, the final in 1539. The laws identified erroneously or questionably as those of the Twelve Tables are included as well. The final section is a historical sketch of canon law entitled Historia Pontificii Iuris Liber Singularis. "He concentrated on the main account of the 'origin of law' in the Digest, the long fragment...from Pomponius, and supplemented it by reference to Livy's account of the early republic. Du Rivail sought to reconstruct the contents of the Twelve Tables, and, since that legislation was said to be inspired by the Athenian laws of Solon, he included all known provisions of Solon's law (Stein). 3 copies of this edition located in North America (at the National Library of Canada, UC-Berkeley Law School and the Library of Congress). Another copy located at Harvard Law School. Stein, Roman Law in European History 78. Adams, Catalogue of Books Printed on the Continent of Europe, 1501-1600 R592.

        Regola da imparate scrivere varii caratteri de littere con li suoi compassi et misure: et il modo di temperare le penne secondo la sorte de littere che vorrai scrivere

      Venice: Nicolo d’Aristotile detto Zoppino, 1533. Very rare early augmented edition (second) of Arrighi’s treatise on writing containing both the writing samples and the instructions on preparing pen and ink, which were previously issued separately. (See below) Arrighi’s writing books were among the earliest and most influential of the genre, contributing significantly to the adoption of Italian hands throughout Europe. Ludovico Vicentino degli Arrighi (1475-1527) was a native of Vicenza but moved to Rome around 1510, where he entered the printing business. His ambition was to have his own printing house specializing in the production of limited-edition quality works for wealthy clients. He perfected his hand as a copyist for patrons such as Vittoria Colonna, Lorenzo de’ Medici and Machiavelli; through the patronage of Cardinal Giulio de’ Medici he was given work in the Papal chancery. He began composing a writing manual in 1522, and the resulting two volumes, La Operina and Il Modo de temperare le Penne were probably published in 1524 and 1525 respectively. (Osley, Becker). Arrighi took the blocks with him to Venice on a trip in 1527 and left them there; he subsequently had a falling out with his Roman partner Ugo da Carpi who had created a special type based on Arrighi’s design. As a result of this, subsequent Roman editions of Arrighi’s writing manual were based on recut blocks by da Carpi, while the Venetian editions by Zoppino used the original blocks. Zoppino’s editions were also the first to combine together the Operina and Il Modo, but only the present, second, edition includes Arrighi’s instructions for manufacturing fine ink.“If we compare the contents of Arrighi’s Operina and Il Modo with those of Tagliente’s Lo presente libro, we can detect, behind the general similarity, some important difference. Arrighi’s books are better presented and bear the stamp of a professional typographer; Arrighi has a higher proportion of white alphabets against a black background, an indication of Celebrino’s collaboration’ and his selection of models reveals the natural bias of a scribe trained in book hands and ecclesiastical work. He is thinking more of the Church than of the Foreign Office or Stock Exchange. His manuals, in other words, are cast in the mould of Rome rather than Venice.” (Osley, p. 34)OCLC: 1522 Operina: Newberry1523 Il modo: Newberry1523 Operina: Newberry1525 Operina: Newberry1532 Regola da imparare: Harvard* Becker, Practice of Letters 6; Bonacini 1968;. 4to.

      Basel: Joannes Bebelius, 1533.. [12],92 leaves. 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 Cortes. 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.

        Cosmographia introductio

      Venice,: Io. Antonius da Sabbio & others, July, 1533.. Small octavo, with a large woodcut on title-page of an astrolabe enclosing the world, full-page astronomical woodcut on the verso, numerous illustrations and diagrams in the text, printer's device on last leaf; a few stains but a very good copy in old half red calf. Essential cosmographical text of the renaissance: the German humanist Apian, better known by the latinised form of his name as Apianus, produced a book in 1524 that became one of the most popular of all scientific works, an early geographical text with numerous woodcuts of the earth, the Zodiac, and examples of determining longitude and latitude. Its popularity was quite extraordinary by comparison with other popular books of the period: over nearly a century Apianus' text went through more than forty-five editions, in four languages, published in seven cities, by at least eighteen publishers.This rare early edition is an example of the popular shortened format of this widely-studied work on cosmography. It neatly summarises the Renaissance world view, and includes several references to Vespucci's discovery of America. The book is notable for 'the division of the earth into climatic zones, the uses of parallels and meridians, the determination of latitude, several methods for determining longitude including that of lunar distance, the use of trigonometry to determine distances, several types of map projections, and many other topics...' (Karrow).Apianus' work in its full-length form was first published in 1524; it first appeared in this popular format in Antwerp in 1532 or 1533. This is the second edition in this form, and the first of at least seven such editions produced in Italy in the sixteenth century.Alden, 'European Americana', 533/3; Harrisse (BAV), Add 100; JCB, I, 107; Van Ortroy , 84.
