ARAYA, Fernando de.
De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, col. 1534; Medina, La imprenta en Manila 260; WorldCat (7 copies). First and only edition of a brief dissertation on the practical use of mathematics in the military by the Spanish soldier Fernando de Araya, "alferez de una de las compañias del regimiento del rey nuestro señor", who studied at Manilla's Jesuit University. With the Jesuit mathematician Francisco Ortiz Zugasti (1727-1772) as praeses. Although the letterpress presswork leaves much to be desired, the frontispiece is nicely executed and well printed, and the Italian laid paper is excellent and very white. In very good condition. Silk covering torn at the spine (front board nearly detached) and with faded patches along the edge of the front board. A rare Manilla imprint, bound in silk.

FIESCHI, Stefano.
in ædibus Francisci Bindoni ac Maphei Pasini, Venetiisque [Venezia], 1534. 99, [1] c., 16º(16 cm), piena pergamena. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Opera molto rara. Grande xilografia al frontespizio con professore in cattedra e 5 alunni. In fine interessante xilografia di grande formato con l'angelo Raffaele che guida per mano Tobia. L'a. nacque da Manfredo tra la fine del XIV e l'inizio del XV secolo a Soncino (ora in provincia di Cremona). Le prime notizie certe su di lui si traggono dalle sue lettere. Nel 1424-25 era in Normandia, dove svolse per cinque anni le funzioni di segretario presso Zanone Castiglioni, vescovo di Lisieux. Nel 1441 il F. era cancelliere a Ragusa, in Dalmazia, dove poi, dal 1444 al 1459, ebbe la carica di "rector scholarum". Il 12 nov. 1460 il F. risulta "rector scholarum S. Marine" a Venezia, e il 12 nov. 1462 è menzionato per l'ultima volta. Si ignora la data della sua morte. La produzione del F. è quasi tutta centrata su schematici ed elementari manuali di grammatica, a parte il De compositione styliadornandi, manualetto divulgativo di quell'arsdictandi di cui, in verità, il tenore delle sue lettere dà mediocre prova. Proprio per la loro semplicità gli scritti del F. ebbero una fortuna enorme in tutta Europa durante la sua e la generazione seguente, specialmente all'estero, in quanto i sintagmi, che erano frasi da memorizzare, vennero muniti di traduzioni che rendevano più facile l'approccio al latino.

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").

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.

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]

Engraved book-plate inside front board (Bibliotheque du comte Le Moyne de Martigny). ¶ Very scarce edition of Theophrastus' two main works. It is one of the earliest Latin editions of Gaza's esteemed translation, in reality it is the third printing of the first Latin edition (first issued 1483, then 1529 in 8vo, and now 1534) of the works which together constitute the foundation of scientific botany. By Linnaeus Theophrastus is called "the father of Botany". This edition comprises both botanical works, The History of Plants and The Causes of Plants, which have survived in their entirety and are the earliest books of this kind in world literature."It is very strange that so much botanic knowledge should have been accumulated by the end of the fourth century and that so little, if anything, was added to it in ancient times. Theophrastos is not only the first botanic writer but also the greatest until Renaissance of the sixteenth century in Germany....The botany of Theophrastos and the zoölogy of Aristotle represents the climax of natural history in antiquity."

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).

Charles III of Spain
1534. It changed the New World: King Charles III notifies officials in Spanish America that he has suppressed the Jesuits, who had a dominant position there, and that they are to be removed from his domains and their vast possessions confiscated "Motivated by grave causes related to my obligation to maintain my people in subordination, tranquility and justice, as well as other urgent, just and necessary reasons that I reserve to my Royal self: I have decided to order removed from all my dominions in Spain and the Indies, and the Philippine Islands and adjacent dominions, all members of the Company of Jesus..." This removed the Jesuits as a factor in North America in the era that saw the establishment and expansion of the United States; It paved the way for the Franciscans in California The Society of Jesus - or Jesuits - was founded in 1534 by Ignatius of Loyola, a Spanish soldier. Following a religious awakening while recovering from wounds, Ignatius gathered a group of dedicated followers who pledged themselves to lives of poverty and chastity. In 1540, the group received a charter from Rome in which the members promised total loyalty to the Pope and a willingness to go wherever he might assign them. The Jesuits made their initial impact by combating advances made by the Protestant Reformation. Within a short period of time the order grew to thousands of dedicated men, many of them the elite of the European intelligentsia at the time. They were highly educated in many fields, and characterized by their dedication, willingness for self-sacrifice, and determination to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Avec ses révisions et corrections, cette édition marque une amélioration substantielle sur les éditions précédentes telles que l'édition 1533 de Froben, qui a été dérivée de l'édition de 1515 de Beatus Rhenanus. Le premier travail, qui compose la majeure partie de ce volume, est Annals de Tacitus, une histoire de l'Empire romain qui court du règne de l'empereur Tibère (fils et héritier d'Auguste) par l'empereur Nero.

Die Sorge um die Erhaltung der Erzgebirgswälder, die durch Bergbau und Gewerbe stark angegriffen waren, veranlaßte ihn 1713 zur Herausgabe seiner "Sylvicultura oeconomica", dem ersten rein forstlichen Werk der Welt ohne die herkömmliche Bindung an Landwirtschaft und Jagd. Trotz mancher absonderlichen Anschauungen in naturwissenschaftlicher Hinsicht enthält das Buch eine Fülle von treffenden Beobachtungen und Anweisungen für den praktischen Waldbau. Es kann als Grundstein für die sich in den darauffolgenden Jahrzehnten entwickelnde Forstwirtschaft angesehen werden". (NDB III, 147 f.).- Gleichmäßig leicht gebräunt u. etw. braunfleckig, Ebd. leicht berieben, RGelenk gering fachm. restauriert, insges. schön gebundenes, breitrandiges Exemplar.# First edition.- The first purely forestry book in the world, without the traditional attachment to agriculture and hunting.- Evenly slightly browned and a little brownish, hinge slightly expertly restored, all in all beautifully bound, with wide margins.

1534. nunc primum & conscriptus & aeditus. Accedunt aliquot epistolae serijs de rebus, in quibus item nihil est no[n] novum ac recens.Froben printer's device on the title and final page in 2 states (the latter larger), woodcut initials by Urs Graf. Rubricated throughout. 4to (202 x 155mm). 167, [1]pp. Rebound in modern boards covered with a fragment of a printed and rubricated leaf from an early printed Concordance. [Colophon:] Basel: In officina Frobeniana per Hieronymum Frobenium, et Nicolaum Episcopium, First Edition. Erasmus's De praeparatione ad mortem was written in response to a request in June 1533 from Anne Boleyn's father, Thomas Boleyn, for whom Erasmus had already written two works. Boleyn, to whom as Earl of Wiltshire and Ormonde (?Vuiltisheriae & Ormaniae?) the work is dedicated, had asked for ?libellus aliquis de praeparatione ad moriendum?, in other words an up-to-date version of the medieval Ars moriendi. The autograph manuscript survives in the Royal Library in Copenhagen, and is entitled Liber quomodo se quisque debeat praeparare ad mortem.It was written at speed and printing was almost completed at Christmas 1533, although the preliminaries were still not ready. The book was not distributed until mid-February 1534 and it was not until 11 March that two copies (?libelli aurati?) were sent to England but not, it seems, to Thomas Boleyn, who had to wait for a handsomely bound copy. The book was well received in London and strange to relate Queen Catherine of Aragon who died on 7 January 1536 and who had, as every schoolboy knows, been ousted to make room fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plato
1534. Plato, Platonis Opera Omnia cum commentariis Procli in Timaeum & Politica, thesauro ueteris Philosophiae maximo Adiectus etiam est in Platonis omnia, sentential-rum & uerborum memorabilium, Index. Basileae apud Ioan. Valdervm, Mense Martio, Anno. Folio size (31 x 20cm) but collates like an 8vo, 8 leaves per signature. 48pp title-page+ index, etc.; text 1-690; inserted title for Proclus’ commentary on Timaeus and Republic, then 1-433 Proclus’ commentary. Rebacked ½ calf, old boards. Good to very good overall, Some paper repair, one leaf margin trimmed. This is the second complete edition of the works of Plato in Greek. The two commentaries of Proclus are on dialogues he took to be concerned with physics. The Statesman (Politicus) is the dialogue from the first cycle of dialogues in his curriculum; the Timaeus from the second. The commentary on the Politicus seems to be a series of excerpts from other works in which Proclus discusses that dialogue. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
