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 Cort�s. 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]

Wittenberg, Nickel Schirlentz 1533. 4to. 56 Bll.nnum. Mit Holzschnitt-Titelbordüre (Geschichte der Salome) von Lucas Cranach. Marmorierter Halblederband mit Titelschild. Erste Ausgabe, erster Druck. Dieser Angriff auf Meßopfer und Priestertum war Luthers schärfste Streitschrift gegen den Katholizismus seit dem Augsburger Reichstag und Religionsfrieden und erregte entsprechendes Aufsehen. Die Schrift hatte auch später Bestand ". als eine der mächtigsten prinzipiellen Auseinandersetzungen des Protestantismus mit dem Romanismus." (Kawerau). Blatt 4-9 enthalten Luthers "Beichte" einer mitternächtlichen Disputation mit dem Teufel, was seine Gegner zu polemischen Spitzen nutzten, während er sie als schriftstellerisches Mittel nur fiktiv, jedoch mit bester Wirkung vortrug. Die viel verwendete Titeleinfassung (Luther Taf. 25) liegt in einem klaren Abdruck vor. - Alter Schenkungsvermerk auf Titel, Titel sauber angefalzt, nur leicht gebräunt. - VD 16, L-7242; Benzing 3076; WA 36. 182.

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]

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.

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.

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.

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. Re-backed and with some restorations to the boards.

RISNER, Friedrich.
1533. 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. Re-backed and with some restorations to the boards.

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.

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.

Agostino de MUSI detto "Agostino VENEZIANO"
Bulino, 1533, datato e monogrammato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre, avanti l’indirizzo dell’editore Antonio Salamanca. Magnifica prova, particolarmente contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, tracce di colla al verso, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La composizione raffigura una delle fatiche di Ercole, che soffoca Anteo in presenza della Terra, raffigurata con la donna seduta. L’incisione, nonostante sia realizzata nel 1533, viene eseguita nello stile delle opere fiorentine del Raimondi del 1508-10; sebbene derivi da un disegno di Raffaello, è tradotta in maniera "michelangiolesca", ed è stilisticamente simile al successivo lavoro del Veneziano, Gli Arrampicatori, che deriva appunto da Michelangelo. Ex collezione Earl Spencer Althorp (Lugt 2341a). Engraving, 1533, dated and signed with monogram on lower centre plate. After a subject by Raphael. Example in the second state of three, before the address of Antonio Salamanca. Magnificent work, extremely clear, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark of with thin margins, signs of glue on verso, in excellent condition. The composition depicts one of the twelve labours of Hercules, who suffocates Antaeus before the Earth, represented by a sitting woman. Although realized in 1533, the engraving shows the style of the Folrentine works of Raimondi (1508-10). Although it derives from a drawing of Rapahel, the style this works is close to Michelangelo’s.

Ronciere, Ch. de la.
2 Vol. Folio 32 x 22,5 cm. VII, 139 P., 42 Plates. Illustr. Original Kartonage with transparent film (slightly ripped and used). Jacques le Moyne de Morgues (c. 1533-1588) was a French artist and member of Jean Ribaults expedition to the New World. His depictions of Native American, colonial life and plants are of extraordinary historical importance. Until well into the 20th century, knowledge of Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues was extremely limited, and largely confined to the footnotes of inaccessible ethnographic bibliographies, where he figures as the writer and illustrator of a short history of Laudonnieres attempt in 1564-5 to establish a Huguenot settlement in Florida. In 1922, however, Spencer Savage, librarian of the Linnean Society, made a discovery that opened the way to the subsequent definition of Le Moyne as an artistic personality he recognized that a group of fifty-nine watercolors of plants contained in a small volume, purchased by the Victoria and Albert Museum in 1856 solely for its fine sixteenth-century French binding, were in fact by Le Moyne. Savages publications relating to this discovery prepared the way for subsequent attribution to the artist of other important groups of drawings and watercolors, which form the core of his known oeuvre. Le Moyne was born about 1533, in Morgues, some 7 miles east of Chateaudun, in the Loire Valley, France. The first thirty years of his life are undocumented, but it seems reasonable to suppose that he trained as an artist in his native town, which was at the time a notable center both for cartography and for illuminatio … [Click Below for Full Description]
