ARISTOTELES - ARISTOTLE
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). La … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cornelis Cort (1533-1578) was a reknown Dutch draughtsman and engraver. He was known as Cornelio Flammingo while he was in Italy (from 1565 until his death). He started an art academy in Rome, where Carracci was among his students.Frans Floris (1519/20-1570) was the foremost Antwerp artist of the mid-sixteenth century. Known as the Flemish Raphael, he was admired for his Italianate style, treatment of the body and approach to composition. As a result of his close relationship with the publisher Hieronymus Cock, who established the Quatre Vents press in the same years that Floris started to receive important commissions, the artist was able to harness the print medium as no Antwerp artist … [Click Below for Full Description]

Longtemps méconnu, Tacite ne suscita intérêt, éditions et travaux critiques que tardivement à la Renaissance. "Beatus Rhenanus publie (dans cette édition de 1533 des ‘Opera omnia’ de Tacite] ses deux commentaires: l’un stylistique et lexical, l’autre philologique, consacrés à l’ensemble de l’œuvre de l’historien latin.

[HISTOIRE AUGUSTE]
(1533) BM-STC German 842. Adams S 2025. Troisième édition de l'Histoire Auguste donnée par Érasme et Jean-Baptiste Egnatius. L'Histoire Auguste est le nom que l'on donne couramment depuis le début du XVIIe siècle à un recueil de biographies d'empereurs romains composé en latin au cours de l'Antiquité tardive, à la fin du IVe siècle. Ce recueil commence avec la vie d'Hadrien et s'achève avec celle de Numérien. Il couvre donc la période allant de 117 à 285 de l'ère chrétienne, avec cependant une lacune de seize ans, entre 244 et 260. S'apparentant à la continuation de l'œuvre de Suétone, cet ouvrage se présente comme une œuvre collective, rassemblant les travaux de six biographes - Aelius Spartianus, Julius Capitolinus, Vulcacius Gallicanus, Aelius Lampridius, Trébellius Pollion et Flavius Vopiscus. Diverses allusions placent explicitement la rédaction de ces biographies sous les règnes de Dioclétien et de Constantin Ier (284 à 337). Longtemps ce recueil suscita un sentiment ambigu : d'un côté, il est l'une des sources les plus abondantes sur une période mal connue de l'empire, de l'autre, il accumule les erreurs apparentes, les informations triviales ou suspectes. D'une manière générale, les premières biographies sont bien meilleures et plus fiables que les biographies des empereurs plus tardifs et que les biographies des usurpateurs. Exemplaire comportant quelques rousseurs éparses, complet. Belle marque d'imprimeur de Froben à la page de titre, répétée au titre intermédiaire de la page 545 et au verso du dernier feuillet. Nombreuses lettrines gravées sur bois d'après les i … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 ill … [Click Below for Full Description]

Martyr, Peter
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 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FRENCH RENAISSANCE LITERATURE].
Lyons: François Juste, 1533. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo, [14 x 6.3 cm]. (1) f., 80 ff., woodcut architectural title border incorporating printer's initials, 29 small woodcuts flanked by columns, black-on-white woodcut initials. Bound in 19th-century red morocco gilt by Trautz-Bauzonnet, gold-tooled green morocco doublures, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, in a pale blue chemise with green morocco spine label. Binding pristine, with the fine ex libris of its previous owners affixed to the front flyleaf. A 1-cm paper flaw at f. 38 affecting a few letters, very faint uniform browning. Only recorded copy of a very early illustrated edition (3rd) of this anonymous collection of 'nouvelles,' a literary genre presenting brief prose narratives taken from bourgeois life. The Parangon des nouvelles honnestes utiles et delectables, following the famous Les cent nouvelles nouvelles (c. 1460), collected vernacular tales purporting to be both true and current (i.e., relating to recent events, hence 'nouvelle') and so eschewed more established prose forms which relied on classical mythology, historical exempla, chivalric fantasy, and animal fable, in favor of reports on greedy merchants, drunken millers, lascivious housewives, and the like. Largely derived from the Decameron of Boccaccio, Lorenzo Valla's Apologues, Poggio Bracciolini's Facetiae and the anonymous Germanic Ulenspiegel, the Parangon packaged together old and new for popular consumption, resulting in what one scholar has called "a magma ready for every kind of metamorphosis" (Pérouse [1977], p. 7), that is to say, the unform … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 principle of triangulation for use in surveying.

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 Frisiu … [Click Below for Full Description]

VADIANUS, Joachim (Joachim von WATT).
Alden & Landis 534/31; Harrisse, BAV 189; JCB I, p. 460; Karrow 58/47.1; Sabin 98279 (erroneously dated 1533); Shirley 70; VD 16, V20. First edition of Vadianus's influential description of the world, with the very important map of the world depicting America for almost the first time, showing the complete outline of South America and according to Sabin "lacking in most of the copies located". The map is a reduced size copy of the world map attributed to Sebastian Münster published in Grynaeus's Novis orbis regionum ac insularum veteribus incognitarum ... (Basel, 1532) itself primarily based on Waldseemüller's map of 1507.Vadianus describes all the continents, seas and islands, regions, mountains and towns of the world, with separate chapters on Europe, Africa, Asia, Palestine and even Paradise, offering a geographical reading of biblical history. The description of America can be found on pp. 263-273. In the same year an octavo edition was published (without the map), later followed by several other editions.Small worm hole in the outer margin of pp. 175-226. Very good copy.

RISNER, Friedrich.
VD17 12:159504X; cf. DSB 11, p. 468; Poggendorff II, col. 648; not in Honeyman; Houzeau-Lancaster. Second edition of a renowned optical and mathematical work by Friedrich Risner (1533-1580), apprentice and colleague of Peter Ramus, the famous anti-Aristotelian humanist and educational reformer. The first edition appeared in 1606.Risner's mathematical abilities were highly praised by Ramus, who, in his will, even established a chair in mathematics at the Collège Royal de France with Risner as its first occupant. The first major result of the collaboration between Risner and Ramus was Risner's edition (1572) of two manuscripts discovered by Ramus: the first edition of Optics by Ibn al-Haytham (in Latin Alhazen), who worked at Cairo in the first half of the 11th century; and a greatly improved edition of Perspectiva by Witelo (in Latin Vitello), a Polish scientist of the second half of the 13th century. Alhazen's work preserved all that was known by the ancients in the field of optics, and Risner's edition and his own observations and corrections helped establish the science upon a new foundation. Risner's present Opticae, based partly on Witelo, appeared only posthumously, but was probably outlined by Ramus and further developed by Risner during the early years of their collaboration. It exerted a great influence on Snell and others.Badly browned, but otherwise in good condition, with an abrasion on the title-page and last text page (probably erasing a library stamp), not affecting the text.

MAFFEI, Giovanni Pietro.
Borba de Moraes, p. 508; Cordier, Japonica, col. 63; Sabin 43771. Second Cologne edition of a classic work on "the Indies", including both the West and East Indies. This important account of Portuguese discoveries and missionary work covers India, the East Indies, Persia, Japan, China, Brazil and other parts of America, and was written by the humanist and Jesuit Giovanni Pietro Maffei (1533?-1603). The first edition was published in 1588 in Florence, and the first Cologne edition appeared in 1589. Maffei's history almost immediately became very popular as it hit the market when curiosity about the Far East was at its height, and was repeatedly published in Latin and translated into Italian and French. Besides providing a systematic history of the missions, Maffei's work laid to rest many of the accusations that were then being made about the falsities and exaggerations being spread by the published letters.With a woodcut armorial bookplate on pastedown and some owners inscriptions on title-page. Some minor browning throughout and there were labels attached to parts two and three (one torn out), resulting in some minor stains in the margins of the facing leaves. A very good copy. Binding slightly soiled and with a couple minor restorations, but otherwise good. [Attributes: First Edition]

Montaigne, Michel de.
Three volumes (complete). Octavo. Volume I: [28],414,[26] pages/ Volume II: [4],608 pages / Volume III: [36], [4],468,[27] pages. Original Hardcover (contemporary calf with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached (this volume needs attention from a bookbinder). Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent.
