RICCHI Agostino
Vitali Bernardino, 1533. in - 4 (191 x 135 mm.), ff. (72), caratt. corsivo; leg. antica p. perg. rigida, tit. su tassello al dorso. Figura simbolica sul titolo. Precedono il testo la dedica dell'A. al Card. Ippolito de Medici, datata 25 lug. 1533, e un avviso ai lettori di A. Vellutello in cui si "svela l'allegoria della Favola". Prima edizione, rarissima, di questa commedia, in 5 atti in endecasillabi sciolti, che è l'unico testo teatrale del lucchese A. Ricchi, composto all'età di appena diciott'anni. Venne rappresentata a Bologna per le feste dell'incoronazione di Carlo V, alla presenza del Papa Clemente VII e del Duca di Firenze, «che potevano apparire, per una singolare allusione, i protagonisti della commedia. Il titolo è però ispirato al fatto che tre uomini, un vecchio, un giovane e un ricco, nutrono violenta passione per una fanciulla; ma in realtà il vero tiranno di tutta la vicenda è l'amore, che obbligas alla fine i tre personaggi a sottostare a un destino quale essi non si ripromettevano..La commedia, originale, bizzarra, e ricca di ''spirito'' è equilibrata con sapiente decoro e con dosato allegorismo» (Chiesa, Teatro ital. del Cinquecento, n. 198). Vivacemente disegnata risulta la figura del parassita Pilastrino, ''ghiottone e cinico'', avvicinabile, secondo Sanesi (I, p. 271) al Margutte del Pulci. Esemplare fresco e marginoso (lieve restauro all'angolo super. bianco degli ultimi 27 fogli).

FEMME, FEMINISME - BARBARO (Francesco)
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.

Apian, Peter [1495-1552]. Apianus, Petrus. Bienewitz, Peter. Benewitz, Peter.
Ingolstadii [Inglstadt] An. M.D.XXXIII. 1533 1533. An exceptionally well-restored copy of the first and only early edition of this superb work on astronomical and scientific instruments. Recently re-bound by Bernard C. Middleton, in sympathetic style, using alum-tawed pigskin over boards with blind-tooling in the German style of the period. Folio, 289x193mm. [108] pages; signatures: [2], A-N4 (i.e. 54 leaves). Title-page in red and black, with a half-page woodcut illustration; the arms of 'Ioannis Gulielmi a Loubemberg' [Johannes Wilhelm von Loubemberg] are on the verso.

The first of these corresponds exactly with our copy; the title-page in the second copy is slightly differently set and is printed in black only, the rest of the text block is identical. Expert repairs to the lower foredge corners of the final two leaves, not affecting the print area. Profusely illustrated throughout with woodcuts of scientific instruments and their applications. A lovely crisp and clean copy. Peter Bienewitz or Benewitz (later Latinised to Petrus Apianus or Peter Apian) was born in 1495, in Leisnig, Saxony. The son of a shoemaker, Apianus was educated at the Latin school in Rochlitz and studied mathematics, astronomy and geography in Leipzig; before moving to Vienna in 1519 to continue his studies at the University.

BOOK OF HOURS PRINTED ON VELLUM, IN LATIN
Paris: Germain Hardouyn, 1533 [with Calendar covering 1520-32]. In addition to containing 29 miniatures of various sizes, as intended by the publisher, this is a well-loved Book of Hours of very great charm because of its special added feature--what amounts to 84 original paintings in the form of distinctive borders depicting delightfully imaginative outdoor scenes. However quaint they may appear next to the work of the Limbourg brothers, these frames are remarkably diverting, showing as they do grotesques cavorting with woodland creatures, birds, or fearful humans; dogs dancing on their hind legs to the accompaniment of musicians with drums and pipes; animated hunts featuring hounds, archers, fleeing rabbits, graceful doomed deer, and fierce wild boar; a woman baking bread; a woodsman by a bonfire; a man charming a snake-like creature by playing a horn; a woman shearing sheep; shepherds serenading their flocks with bagpipe tunes; a rooster confronting a fox; Saint Jerome and his lion, and so on. The miniatures enclosed by these borders are themselves of considerable interest, being richly hand colored and lavishly heightened with gold, but their conventional elegance is outshone by the lively, whimsical frames, whose homespun immediacy forges a strong connection between us and the past. We are irresistibly drawn to speculate about the person for whom this was created--no doubt a seriously devout believer, as the book's signs of use indicate, and someone in touch with the elemental dimensions of life. This printed Book of Hours is rare: copies seem to have appeared at auct … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. $450. * 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 … [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]

REGIOMONTANUS, Johannes.
DSB XI, pp. 348-352; VD 16, M6571 (8 copies); Zinner 2269 and 2273. Rare third, augmented edition, edited by Santbech, of Regiomontanus's works on plane and spherical trigonometry, first published in 1533. His intention was to provide astronomers with the mathematical techniques essential for their studies. The result was the first systematic treatise on plane and spherical trigonometry to be published in the West, establishing trigonometry as an independent discipline. His sine tables give values for every tenth of a degree, a first step in the transition to decimal calculations. The short treatise by Regiomontanus's teacher Peurbach on the computation of sine functions forms an integral part of this Regiomontanus edition. Santbech's work has its own title-page and series of signatures, but it is generally bound with the Regiomontanus and matches it typographically.In very good condition, with only a small marginal hole and a water stain in a few preliminary leaves. The binding is slightly rubbed but still good, with traces of brass fastenings formerly present.

J. Herwagen, Basel, 1533. EXTENSIVE EARLY ANNOTATIONS AND DIAGRAMS EDITIO PRINCEPS. Folio pp. (vi) 268, 115 (i). Greek letter, title page with printer's device repeated on verso of final leaf. First leaf of text within woodcut ornamental border (early manuscript Greek index in outer margin), woodcut headpieces and initials, printed mathematical diagrams throughout. Very extensive early Greek manuscript annotations and corrections to the whole of the first 61 pages (Book I) and the last 115 (Proclus' commentary in Greek and Latin) with numerous manuscript diagrammatic worked examples, very clear and legible. A very good, crisp, clean, widemargined copy, stamp erased from the verso of title page, in polished North European calf, c. 1700. An important copy of the editio princeps of Euclid's Elements together with the first edition of Proclus' commentary. The systematic and close annotations to Book I and the Proclus commentary, where the text has actually been illustrated by way of precise geometric illustrations, make this an extremely valuable copy in determining how both texts were received and used (and the relationship between them) in the first generations after their publication. It is highly unusual to find either of them consistently annotated in the same (or any) hand from beginning to end and even more so where, as here, the annotations constitute a critical commentary and do not just emphasise or note repetition of the text. Book I is the single most important book, in which Euclid outlines all of the fundamental ideas he will expand on in the rest of the work. The … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (296 x 197 mm), pp [xii] 268; 115 [1] with printer's device on title and last leaf, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text, woodcut border around opening page of the text; title a trifle dust-soiled, small portion of blank corner of first three leaves repaired, a very attractive copy in eighteenth-century French mottled sheep, inscription on title 'Collegii Lemovicensis Societ. Jesu Catal. inscriptus, 1672'.Editio princeps of Euclid's Elements, and of Proclus' commentary on the first book of the Elements. The first printing of Euclid was a Latin translation in 1482, but the original Greek text had to wait a further fifty-one years before its appearance. The Greek text was edited by Simon Grynaeus, a German Protestant theologian and philologist. The printer Johann Herwagen introduced the innovation in this edition of printing Euclid's diagrams within the text.The commentary by Proclus on the first book of Euclid's Elements is the first printing of the earliest work on the philosophy of mathematics. It was written in the fifth century by the Neoplatonist mathematician and philosopher Proclus who as 'the last great systematiser of the Greek philosophical inheritance . exerted a powerful influence on medieval and Renaissance thought' (Oxford classical dictionary).'Because of his interest in the principles underlying mathematical thought and their relation to ultimate philosophical principles, Proclus' commentary is a notable - and also the earliest - contribution to the philosophy of mathematics.

De NOBILI Flaminio.
Prima edizione. Opera dedicata al Granduca Cosimo de' Medici. Testo latino. Cm.15,3x10. Pg.191, (1). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Fresco esemplare. Flaminio De Nobili (Lucca, 1533 - 1591), scrittore, teologo e filosofo di origine garfagnina (l'antico nome di famiglia era Della Pieve), fu allievo di Aonio Paleario, e quindi compì gli studi universitari di medicina e filosofia a Pisa e a Ferrara. Fu a Lucca Priore in San giovanni, Rettore in San Pietro Somaldi e Canonico in Santa Maria Forisportam, e stretto corrispondente del Tasso, con cui collaborò a lungo addirittura nella revisione della "Gerusalemme liberata". La sua opera prima fu il "Trattato dell'amore humano", scritta a Ferrara nel 1556 e stampata l'anno successivo dal Busdrago. Il presente trattato filosofico, qui in prima edizione, vide anch'esso la luce per la cura dei tipi del nobile Vincenzo Busdraghi (Lucca, 1524 - 1601), titolare di una celebre impresa tipografica, attiva nella sua città natale dal 1549 fino al 1605, dopo essere stata rilevata dal figlio. Usando come marca lo stemma di famiglia, un dragone alato con volto da vecchio, pubblicò tra l'altro preziose edizioni del Pontano, dell'Interiano, del Bandello e di Lorenzo il Magnifico, oltre a Statuti di magistrature lucchesi. Le "Quaestione logicae" furono ristampate nel 1563.
