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.

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).
1533. 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.

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]

Theodor ZWINGER
1533. Theodor Zwinger (Basilea, 2 agosto 1533 - Basilea, 10 marzo 1588) è stato uno scienziato svizzero. Celebre medico e capo di una famiglia che per tre secoli si distinse per la propria attività scientifica.Figlio di una sorella dell'incisore Jean Oporin e di Leonard Zwinger, artigiano pellettiere, originario di Bischofszell, in Turgovia, discendente di un'antica e illustre famiglia, resa nobile nel 1492, per decisione dell'imperatore Massimiliano I.Perduto il padre a cinque anni, fu allevato dalla madre, risposatasi con Conrad Lycosthènes e studiò alla scuola del grammatico Thomas Plater, che gli insegnò i primi rudimenti delle lingue classiche. Ammesso nel 1548 nell'Accademia, seguì con profitto le lezioni ma, preso dal desiderio di viaggiare, partì da Basilea più carico di libri che di denaro e si diresse a Lione, persuaso che il proprio talento per la poesia non potesse non procurargli amici e mecenati. Qui frequentò per tre anni la tipografia dei Bering come proto.Andato a Parigi, vi frequentò i corsi dei più celebri professori, tra gli altri quelli di Pietro Ramo, del quale Theodor riconobbe in seguito la benevolenza. Dopo cinque anni, nel 1553, tornò a Basilea ma, dietro consiglio di Pietro Perna, editore di Lucca, espatriato per motivi religiosi, partì subito per l'Italia. Zwinger, dopo aver seguito i corsi dello Studio di Padova, andò a Venezia per perfezionare le conoscenze delle società più colte. Il patrigno, ormai malato, intendeva associarlo alla redazione delle sue opere e lo sollecitava di tornare a Basilea. Prima di lasciare l'Italia, ricevette la laurea … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Petrarca, Francesco.
[colophon: Stampato in Vinegia: per Giouann' Antonio di Nicolini & fratelli da Sabbio 4to (21.5 cm; 8.5"). [76] ff.. 1533] Extracted here from the first edition of Petrarch's works to be printed with Giovanni Andrea Gesualdo's commentary is Petrarch's Triomphi with the numerous comments of Gesualdo. => The Renaissance page management by which a short section of text may be printed as near-surrounded by a sea of commentary is on full show here. This offering contains the sectional title-page for I Triomphi, the dedication to Contessa di Colisano with a preface by Gesualdo, an introduction, and the poems, all neatly printed and ruled in red; the "triumphs" are love, chastity, death, fame, time, and eternity. Petrarch did not conceive of I Triomphi as a single, unified work: They do not represent a continuous writing, they differ in character one from another, and they were not assembled as a single poem until after his death. Still, once brought together the six are clearly Petrarch's greatest effort to bring the model of Dante's Comedy into his own canon. 18th-century quarter vellum over marbled paper–covered boards with "Petrarca – Trionfi" inked to spine, all edges speckled red; volume rubbed, especially at corners, boards gently bent inwards at fore-edge, light worming at spine, one small mark on front cover. Part of a larger work as mentioned above, with light pencilling on endpapers and one instance of old crayon, small signs of worming on front endpapers and most inner margins with several repaired, light waterstaining to upper inner margins and also across upper outer … [Click Below for Full Description]

EUCLID.
Baslleae [Basel]: Apud Joan. Hervagium, 1533. EDITIO PRINCEPS (the first edition in the original Greek) of the 'Elements of Geometry' of Euclid (fl. c. 300 B.C.). This work is the oldest mathematical textbook in the world still in common use today, and the one that has had the most long-lasting influence on the entire history of science; it "has exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible" (DSB). No other work of science can claim such importance combined with such antiquity. Much of the contents of the Elements was already known by Euclid's time, but its synthesis and an absolutely rigorous and inflexibly logical arrangement that defies improvement ensured its success and made the Elements a model for future generations. The first edition of 1482 is an outstanding piece of printing and an example for subsequent mathematical books, but it is textually flawed, being a translation into Latin from the Arabic and representing Euclid "very inadequately" (Ency. Brit., 1911). The present edition of the original Greek is therefore a very valuable text, edited by Simon Grynaeus from two manuscripts and dedicated to Cuthbert Tunstall, Bishop of Durham. It is also the first edition to print Euclid's diagrams inset in the text. Following the Elements are 115 pages containing the commentary on the first book of the Elements by Proclus (412-485 A.D.). 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 G … [Click Below for Full Description]

1533 1Petit 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. Haganoae, Seceriana [Haguenau, Jean Secer], 1533 (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.

SEBONDE (Raymond de) ou RAYMUNDUS de SABUNDE, DORLAND (Pierre) ou DORLANDUS (Petrus)
S.l. Martinus Caesar Martinus, Mense Augusto, 1533 [Anvers, Merten de Keyser, août 1533]. In-16, demi-veau à petits coins, dos orné d'un décor de résilles, palettes et petits fers spéciaux dorés (rel. ca 1800, lég. frottée), (8), 191 f. Rare et précoce édition de cette adaptation élégante, sous forme de dialogues, de la 'Théologie Naturelle' du médecin, théologien et philosophe catalan Raymond de Sebonde, auquel la traduction de Montaigne et son 'Apologie' apporta une notoriété immortelle. Composé par Pierre Dorland (Petrus Dorlandus), cette adaptation suscita dès sa première parution (1499) une extraordinaire ferveur à travers toute l'Europe. Marguerite de Valois fit de cette 'Violette de l'Ame' son livre de chevet. Une autre reine de France, Éléonore d'Autriche, femme de François Ier, le fit traduire. Les six premiers dialogues sont des adaptations de chacune des parties de la 'Théologie naturelle', "infléchie en termes de spiritualité érasmienne et marquée de réminiscence virgilienne", le septième est, en propre de Pierre Dorland. D'abord imprimeur en France, d'inspiration réformée, l'éditeur Merten de Keyser (ou Martin Lempereur) dut s'exiler à Anvers, après qu'une série d'interdits aient frappé ses productions. Sur ce texte, cf. J. Balsamo, 'Un gentilhomme et sa Théologie', in 'Montaigne et la théologie...' (dir. Ph. Desan), Droz, 2008, p. 105-126. Sur l'éditeur cf.

FRENCH RENAISSANCE LITERATURE].
Lyons: Fran�ois Juste, 1533. 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], … [Click Below for Full Description]
