ALDINE IMPRINT). TACITUS, CORNELIUS
Venetiis [Venice]: Aldi Manutii Romani et Andreae Asula, 1534. Only Aldine Edition. This is a remarkably well-preserved copy of the sole Aldine printing of a great classical Roman history. The "Annals" of Tacitus (ca. 55 - ca. 117) describe the deeds and misdeeds of the Julio-Claudian dynasty from 14 to 68 A.D. It was the outstanding work of the great Roman historian, a star of the Silver Age of Latin literature known for his concise prose and penetrating psychological insights into politics. Our Aldine issue is a reprint of Froben's 1533 edition compiled by Beatus Rhenanus (1485-1547) from the Beroaldus edition of 1515, with (as Dibdin noted) "many errors of that editor . . . corrected." Dibdin and Renouard both observe that our edition is much sought after and fetches a far higher price than the Froben version. It includes three other works: (1) a short piece on the Germanic peoples, an ethnologically important work that favorably contrasts their crude virility with the corruption of Rome; (2) a biography of Agricola, governor of Britain under Domitian (and Tacitus' father-in-law), considered one of the outstanding biographies of ancient literature and a very valuable record of part of the early history of the British Isles; and (3) a concluding dialogue on oratory, contrasting unfavorably the speeches given in Tacitus' own day under the watchful eyes of an emperor with the great harangues of Cicero's late Republican era.. 213 x 133 mm. (8 1/2 x 5 1/4"). [12], 260 leaves. Only Aldine Edition. Excellent modern burgundy crushed morocco, covers with gilt Aldine anchor at c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sfortunati, Giovanni
[Venice: Nicolo di Aristotile detto Zoppino,], 1534. [Venice: Nicolo di Aristotile detto Zoppino,], 1534 First edition of this treatise on arithmetic for merchants. Sfortunati, whose dates are not recorded, was a Siena-born teacher of arithmetic who worked through much of Italy and Sicily. His book, which went into at least six more editions by the year 1568, was influential, being one of the main sources for Tartaglia's General trattato de' numeri et misure, which has been called the best treatise on arithmetic to appear in the sixteenth century. Contemporary limp vellum, modern paper spine label, later front endpapers. Quarto. Title within a woodcut border, divided into four panels. Title printed in black and red. Text with many mathematical calculations printed in the outer margins. Title a bit soiled, lower margins of first three leaves with repaired worming, lower outer corner of some leaves with an old, faded dampstain. a few light brown stains. Still, a very good copy of a rare book. Riccardi emphasizes the rarity of the first edition: "Questa prima ediz. e rarissima" (II, 453). The last copies of the first edition to appear at auction came up in the 1980s. OCLC notes nine copies of this edition in North America (the Huntington Library, the Burndy Library (at the Huntington), Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Columbia, the Smithsonian, the U.S. Naval Observatory, Mount Angel Abbey Library in Oregon, Lehigh University).

SANNAZARO Jacopo
1534. Four Aldine devices on title page and final leaf of each volume (A1, M4 verso, A1, G4 verso), 3-line initial spaces, all with guide letters. 2 vols in 1. 8vo (159 x 105mm). 91, [1]ff.; 48, [4]ff. Contemporary vellum, with five raised bands on spine, title inked in second compartment, green edges (vellum stained and scratched, joints cracking slightly and corners bumped). Second Aldine edition of humanist court poet Jacopo Sannazaro?s (c.1456-1530) seminal pastoral romance, Arcadia, and the first and only edition of his poems to be produced by the Aldine press, frequently found together. Composed in the 1480s but only published officially in 1504 in Naples (after an unauthorised edition in Venice, 1502), the Arcadia consists of alternating poetry and prose narrative. The Sonetti e Canzoni are Petrarchan lyrical poems dedicated to his mistress, Cassandra Marchese. Neapolitan Sannazaro?s use of the Tuscan vernacular in a literary context was a significant step in the Italian questione della lingua debates. Provenance: Sticker on upper cover, ?Zoccolanti No.1413? Italian inscription on verso of front free endpaper, translating as ?This is a work of great value. Not to be given to anyone who does not recognise its worth.? Two Italian ownership inscriptions on title page; a third (washed) below. Two aborted attempts at an Aldine anchor on recto of rear free endpaper and end paste-down. Vol. I: Two holes in title page (ink corrosion), closed tear and repair to outer blank margin of title verso. Closed tear and repair to A4, not touching text.

A PRINTED BOOK OF HOURS ON VELLUM, IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Paris: Germain Hardouyn, ca. 1534 [almanach covering 1534-46]. In a binding elaborately decorated with gilt, this rare Book of Hours has been enhanced with meticulous coloring and the addition of floral borders by a contemporary hand. Germain and his brother Gillet Hardouyn produced numerous Books of Hours between 1497-1538 that were known for their delicate and artful illumination, but it is the addition of hand coloring here that makes this example notable. In "Les Heures Gothiques," Soleil says that Hardouyn miniatures were "almost always delicately executed only by a skilled hand and, as a consequence, have been sought after by bibliophiles." Because devotional books often suffered hard use, they are typically beset with major defects; though not without signs of thumbing, the present work is still remarkably clean, and the miniatures retain their rich hues and detail. This particular edition seems to be quite rare both institutionally and on the market, with no auction records and only three copies located on OCLC with the same collation and calendar years. The bindings used for 16th century Books of Hours varied widely; the present volume shows off particularly intricate and pleasing gilt decoration.. 205 x 135 mm. (8 x 5 3/8"). [73] leaves (of 80; lacking D1-3, E5, G6, I7, K2). LOVELY CONTEMPORARY FRENCH CALF, LAVISHLY GILT, with large centerpiece on a field of stars, some (later?) stars obscuring the name "P.

"The first connected account of the hero whom later ages know as Hamlet is that of Saxo, called Grammaticus, in [the work offered here], written at the end of the twelfth century and first published in 1514" (Harold Jenkins, ed., Introduction to The Arden Shakespeare Edition of the Works of William Shakespeare). "The [1514 editio princeps] of Saxo probably had a political purpose, to strengthen the legitimacy of the young Danish king, Christian II, vis-a-vis his new family-in-law, the Hapsburg dynasty. Saxo's patriotic history of Denmark, written in language which the Renaissance humanists could appreciate, had finally reached a European public, and thus after a long delay it contributed to the reputation of Saxo's country and its kings, exactly as he would have liked" (Karsten Friis-Jensen, ed., Saxo Grammaticus: Gesta Danorum: The History of the Danes). Saxo's preface to his book is charmingly modest: "Because other nations are in the habit of vaunting the fame of their achievements, and joy in recollecting their ancestors, Absalon, archbishop of Denmark, had always been fired with a passionate zeal to glorify our fatherland; he would not allow it to go without some noble document of this kind and, since everyone else refused the task, the work of compiling a history of the Danes was thrown upon me, the least of his entourage; his powerful insistence forced my weak intellect to embark on … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEOPHILE.
2 ouvrages en 1 volume in-4. 1). 24ff. 463pp. 2). 12ff. Plein vélin rigide à rabats, dos lisse, titre à l'encre (reliure du 18e siècle). 1). Edition très rare, imprimée à Louvain, de la paraphrase en grec par Théophile des Institutes de Justinien, dont il fut l'un des rédacteurs. Théophile était un jurisconsulte byzantin qui vivait au 6e siècle de notre ère et qui enseignait la jurisprudence à Constantinople. Sa paraphrase de Justinien, dont Larousse dit qu'elle en est le meilleur commentaire et qu'elle contient "de précieux renseignements sur des particularités de l'ancien droit romain", fut publiée pour la première fois à Bâle en 1534 par le jurisconsulte hollandais Van Zuichem (1507-1577). La présente édition fut éditée et imprimée par l'humaniste et libraire-imprimeur hollandais Rutgerus Rescius (mort en 1557), ami d'Erasme et helléniste distingué qui fut notamment le professeur de grec de Vésale et son premier éditeur. Elle contient notamment pour la première fois les notes de l'érudit et humaniste néerlandais Pierre Nanninck (1500-1557), qui enseignait à la faculté de droit de Louvain au sein de laquelle la publication de cette édition provoqua des discussions parfois houleuses autour de l'interprétation du texte grec. 2). Edition Originale. Très rare mémoire de controverse composé par Pierre Nanninck à l'encontre de Jacobus Curtius Brugensis, professeur de droit à Louvain et ancien élève de Rescius et de Juan Luis Vivès, qui venait de publier en cette même année 1536 une traduction latine commentée des paraphrases de Théophile, où il proposait une interprétation dive … [Click Below for Full Description]

Martin Luther
Wittemberg: Hans Lufft. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY BLEMISH! Bible leaf collectors know that some leaves are hard to look at and others look as new as the day they left the printing press. The condition of a particular leaf reflects its history and is not an indication of its actual value. Perfect leaves are ones that have seen little or no use over the centuries in contrast to those that are scarred by the ravages of time. Unblemished leaves are unloved leaves because they have had little contact with sinners. Imperfect leaves tell a story. Some are torn and ripped and worn away by excessive use while others have burns or worm holes and still others are water stained by flood and sometimes even tears. Each ugly mark or stain is in fact a beautiful witness to the Word of God, which, "liveth and abideth forever." We offer Bible leaves as we acquire them letting their condition speak for themselves. All our leaves are sold as seen on eBay. You may request additional images and information for any leaf. Choice Leaves, Finer than Gold, from the Word of God Taste and see! It's sweeter than honey!!

On last leaf recto the ÎApprovatioÌ and privilege by Duke Hercules II Este, verso blank. Very rare second edition of FerraraÌs Municipal laws, after the incunable edition of 1476.The earliest statutes date back to 1287, in an attempt by the House of Este to strengthen their rule over the city: great importance was given to public works, maintenance of the city, and the economic exploitation of the roads leading to the Po. The reform of the statutes, begun by Alfonso I d'Este, was completed by his son Ercole II in 1534 with the approval of the new rules. In his letter of December 23, 1534 to the ÏJudge of the WisesÓ (Giudice deÌ Savi,) Ettore Sacrato, the king ordered that the statutes, already printed, had to be published - by reading aloud - in the city council: ¥Volumus praeterea & vobis mandamus ut ad proximi anni MDXXXV ingressum, in maiori & generali consilio, ut ritus & mos docet antiquitus, statuta ipsa sic a vobis reformata emendataque et mandato nostro ampliata iamque diligen … [Click Below for Full Description]

1534. The artistic adornment of the Bible is an important aspect of the Biblical tradition. We often speak of the Living Word, the written Word and the spoken Word but have we ever considered the value of the visual Word of God? By this it is meant, images were used to convey the essential message of the Bible for those who could not read. The walls and ceilings of ancient churches were beautified with scenes of Biblical stories informing those for whom the Word of God was a mystery of the essence of eternal truths. The advent of the printing press in 1455 introduced the written word to millions who had hither before not had the opportunity to learn for themselves. Books became affordable and the quest for knowledge the highest pursuit. Out of this was born the Protestant Reformation with the nailing of Luther's 95 thesis to the church door in Wittenberg Castle. Soon the reformers were printing the scriptures into easy to understand modern languages and as they did they included... see below. [Attributes: First Edition]

A PRINTED BOOK OF HOURS ON VELLUM, IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Paris: Germain Hardouyn, ca. 1534 [almanach covering 1534-46]. In a binding elaborately decorated with gilt, this rare Book of Hours has been enhanced with meticulous coloring and the addition of floral borders by a contemporary hand. Germain and his brother Gillet Hardouyn produced numerous Books of Hours between 1497-1538 that were known for their delicate and artful illumination, but it is the addition of hand coloring here that makes this example notable. In "Les Heures Gothiques," Soleil says that Hardouyn miniatures were "almost always delicately executed only by a skilled hand and, as a consequence, have been sought after by bibliophiles." Because devotional books often suffered hard use, they are typically beset with major defects; though not without signs of thumbing, the present work is still remarkably clean, and the miniatures retain their rich hues and detail. This particular edition seems to be quite rare both institutionally and on the market, with no auction records and only three copies located on OCLC with the same collation and calendar years. The bindings used for 16th century Books of Hours varied widely; the present volume shows off particularly intricate and pleasing gilt decoration.. 205 x 135 mm. (8 x 5 3/8").

VADIAN (Joachim de Watt dit Vadian ou Vadianus), ZIEGLER (Jacob)
(1534) Réunion de deux importants ouvrages. I. Sabin 98279. Adams V-10. Édition princeps, la seule au format in-folio, de cette importante description du monde, par l'humaniste réformé suisse, de Saint-Gall, Joachim de Watt, dit Vadian. L'ouvrage comporte des références au Nouveau Monde, l'Amérique, dans le chapitre "insulae Oceani praecipuae", commençant à la page 263. Exemplaire incomplet de la rare carte du monde qui, selon Sabin "manque dans la plupart des copies localisées." Marque au titre, lettres ornées (la première historiée) gravées sur bois. La page de titre présente une trace de restauration ancienne : un morceau de papier vierge a été remplacé, comportant une signature manuscrite ancienne, probablement de la première moitié du XVIe siècle. II. VD16 Z 449. - Adams Z 154. Sabin 106331. Ritter IV, 2526. Brunet V, 1535. Seconde édition de ce traité de géographie, "livre rare" selon Brunet, comportant, en plus de la première (Strasbourg, Schöffer, 1532), une description de la Terre Sainte par Wolfgang Weissenburg. Épîtres dédicatoires de Jakob Ziegler à Renée de France, duchesse de Ferrare, et de Wolfgang Wissenburg à Simon Grynaeus. Notre exemplaire, malheureusement relié sans ses cartes, reste fort désirable. [Attributes: First Edition]

MELANCHTHON (Philipp), KAYSER (Johann) dit CAESARIUS (Johannes)
Parisiis, Ex Officina Roberti Stephani [Paris, Robert Estienne], 1534. In-8, plein cartonnage à la Bradel, pièce de titre de veau orange (rel. du XIXe), (136) p. titre compris. Rarissime édition publiée à Paris par Robert Estienne en 1534 connue à deux autres exemplaires. Melanchthon eut l'ambition, par ce traité de dialectique et de rhétorique en deux parties distinctes et autonomes, de fonder une "vraie philosophie" en renouant avec la tradition aristotélicienne de rigueur de raisonnement et de démonstration. L'ouvrage eut un très grand succès à travers toute l'Europe et, comme manuel, demeura en usage pendant plus de deux siècles. Contient une épître dédicatoire de l'auteur aux fils de l’humaniste allemand Wilhelm Reiffenstein, Johann et Albert (p. 3-6), ami de Luther et de Melanchthon. Seulement deux exemplaires de cette édition sont recensés dans le monde (WorldCat): celui de la BnF et Concordia Seminary Library (MO, USA). (Renouard, 'Annales de l'imprimerie des Estienne', n°8 p.40. Renouard, 'ICP', IV, 1076). Intéressantes notes anciennes en marge et soulignement. Tache claire au titre. Bon exemplaire, très bien conservé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

STOEFFLER, JOHANNES. (PROCLUS, PROKLOS). - [STOEFFLER'S SEMINAL COMMENTARY ON PROCLUS' "SPHAERA" - WITH IMPORTANT REFERENCES TO AMERICA]
Tübingen, Hulderich Morhart, 1534. Small folio. Nice full vellum with yapp edges. A, exceptionally nice, clean, and fresh copy. One blank corner of f. 100 restored and small part of upper blank margin of last three leaves restored - far from affecting text. (7), (1 - blank), 133 ff + 1 leaf with portrait. With numerous woodcut astronomical illustrations and diagrams in the text and the woodcut portrai, which is attributed to Holbein the Younger. ¶ The rare first edition of Stoeffler's highly important commentary on Proclus' astronomical main work, "Sphaera", together with the Latin translation of the text by Ludovicus Schradinus (Ludwig Schradin). Proklos' astronomical main work constitutes one of the most important and influential works of Ptolemaic cosmology, and through Stoeffler's pivotal edition of the text with his seminal commentaries, the work comes to play a significant role in Renaissance astronomy. Through Stoeffler, Proclus' "Speara" came to be regarded as the most significant Renaissance alternative to the otherwise dominating "Tractatus de Sphaera" by Sacrobosco - it constituted a Platonic-humanistic and anti-scholastic alternative that gave it a unique role in the history of spherical astronomy, strongly influencing the likes of Kepler. Johannes Stoeffler (1452-1531), Professor of mathematics at the University of Tübingen, was a highly important and influential astronomer and astrologer, who counted both Melanchton and Sebastian Münster among his students. His commentary on Proclus' "Spaera" became extremely influential and was studied by the most important a … [Click Below for Full Description]

A PRINTED BOOK OF HOURS ON VELLUM, IN LATIN AND FRENCH
Paris: Germain Hardouyn, ca. 1534 [almanach covering 1534-46]. In a binding elaborately decorated with gilt, this rare Book of Hours has been enhanced with meticulous coloring and the addition of floral borders by a contemporary hand. Germain and his brother Gillet Hardouyn produced numerous Books of Hours between 1497-1538 that were known for their delicate and artful illumination, but it is the addition of hand coloring here that makes this example notable. In "Les Heures Gothiques," Soleil says that Hardouyn miniatures were "almost always delicately executed only by a skilled hand and, as a consequence, have been sought after by bibliophiles." Because devotional books often suffered hard use, they are typically beset with major defects; though not without signs of thumbing, the present work is still remarkably clean, and the miniatures retain their rich hues and detail.
