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.

MAFFEI, Giovanni Pietro.
1533. 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.

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.

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]

Taccola, Mariano
181, 210 S., zahlr. ganzseitige Abb., Reg., Lit.verz. 4 Ln.mS.iS. *neuwertig*. With the rediscovery of Mariano Taccolas technical manuscripts, a primary source has been found for drawings and texts in treatises and sketchbooks of Francesco di Giorgio Martini. Taccola first conceived a new subject in Renaissance literature: rational descriptions and illustrations of utilitarian structures built by master masons, carpenters, millwrights, and artisans in the service of military lords. Taccolas complex and fascinating manuscript is being published fully in facsimile. It was a gift to Johann Albrecht Widmannstetter who studied law (1533-1542) in Siena, probably at the Studio or University where Taccola had been secretary while writing in the building arts. The volume that Taccola entitled Liber primus leonis and Liber secundis draconis was modified into a Notebook when he, in 1435-1438, added many small sketches around each main drawing existing on a folio, and added quires of paper after Book II for additional and later drawings. This edition includes, in the editors introduction, a short biography of Mariano Taccola, a history of his Notebook, a description of its sections, an account of Taccolas contribution to the history of thechnology, and a study of his influencce. Each of Taccolas several hundred drawings is identified, his Latin texts and notes are all transcribed an then translated into English. In one Appendix, the editors illustrate and interpret eight drawings identified as copies of Taccolas originals lost from his Notebook, and a second Appendix concerns the des … [Click Below for Full Description]

ESTE Ercole II d'
1533. 1 pagina in- folio, con segni di piegatura e indirizzo e sigillo al verso. Lettera chiaramente vergata e firmata dalla cancelleria ducale in merito alla raccomandazione di Giacomo Cagnaccini, inviata dalla famiglia Este all'allora governatore della città di Trento "Hieronimus Magnaninus", il cui nome si legge in calce sulla destra. Con la presente la famiglia ducale voleva garantire personalmente sulla probità e valore del neo-eletto Cagnacini nella commissione podestarile di Trento. Girolamo Magnanini fu amico di Ercole II d'Este e promosse la costruzione del celebre Palazzo Roverella in Ferrara; il Cagnacini fu dotto professore di diritto canonico e diritto civile nella medesima città. Curioso notare la controversa firma della missiva "Filius Alfonsus Dux Ferrarie", che farebbe propendere per un'attribuzione della stessa ad Ercole più che ad Alfonso. "La.. comunità de Trento ha eletto tre persone, per la Loro podestaria, tra li quali lui è uno degli nominati et mi prega voglia ridomandarlo.." Ercole II d'Este (Ferrara, 4 aprile 1508 ? Ferrara, 3 ottobre 1559) fu il quarto duca di Ferrara, Modena e Reggio (1534-1559).

APIANUS, Petrus.
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; 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 seco … [Click Below for Full Description]

GAURICUS, Lucas. [GAURICO, Luca].
First edition Venice: Sumptibus Lucentonii Juntae Typographi, 1533. A fine copy, with contemporary annotations, of these very rare ephemerides, containing tables as well as astrological prognostications for the years 1534 through 1551, each preceded by a special title page.?Horblit 447 (two leaves in in facsimile); Honeyman 1448 (10 leaves defective). According to Houzeau and Lancaster, the ephemerides are calculated after the Alphonsine Tables, and for the meridian of Venice. Astrologer and mathematician, Luca Gaurico was born at Giffoni, near Naples, in 1476 and died at Rome in 1558. As a mathematician he is best known for the first published Latin translations of Archimedes' works De Mensura Circuli and De Quadratura Parabolae (1503). He went on to publish an edition of Pecham's Perspectiva Communis (Venice, 1504), and Trapezuntius's translation of the Almagest (Venice, 1528). Rose (p. 120) suggests that Gaurico may have met Copernicus at Padua, as they were both at the university in the early years of the 16th century, and would have shared a common interest in Ptolemy and Archimedes. In 1531 he was appointed professor of mathematics at Ferrara, where Scaliger was one of his pupils. Gaurico's contemporary reputation stemmed from his astrological prognostications. He was appointed 'astrological consultant' to Catherine de Medici after correctly predicting (aged 14) the ascension to the papacy of Catherine's great-uncle Giovanni de Medici. He became famous throughout Europe after twice predicting in 1529 and 1532 the ascension of Alessandro Farnese who, as Paul III … [Click Below for Full Description]

JORIS, David (subject).
, . . 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.

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. 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. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as e … [Click Below for Full Description]
