Born into a plebeian family, the Roman historian Sallust (85-35 BCE) was a partisan and friend of Julius Caesar, who installed him as governor of Africa Nova, a position that allowed him to amass great wealth through extortion, graft and oppression. He escaped condemnation through his connection to Caesar and retired to Rome in luxury. Two of his works survive as complete texts, Cataline's War (his first published work) and the Jurgenthine War; only fragments of his Histories remain. Sallust strongly opposed the old Roman aristocracy which he described as vicious … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALTURIO - VÉGÈCE.
Paris, Wechel, Paris, Wechel1534-35 ; in-folio, veau brun moucheté, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure du XVIIe s.) Réunion de deux importants traités militaires parus chez l'éditeur Chrestien Wechel en 1534-1535. Originaire de Herenthals dans le Brabant, C. Wechel (1485-1554) a fait ses débuts comme facteur de Conrad Resch à Bâle qui lui cède son fonds en 1526. C'est à cette époque qu'il s'installe à Paris, rue Saint-Jacques où il se spécialise dans les impressions humanistes. On lui doit des éditions d'Alciat, il fut traducteur de Dürer et l'auteur d'un Alphabetum graecum. Proche des idées de Luther il a publié quelques ouvrages de controverse religieuses dont l'un l'aurait conduit à la ruine. À sa mort, son fils André reprend l'imprimerie qui sera ensuite continuée par un longue dynastie de Wechel.Ces deux ouvrages parus à un an d'intervalle sont remarquables par l'abondante illustration d'engins de guerre qui inspira Vinci, mais aussi parce qu'ils témoignent d'importantes évolutions de Wechel à cette époque. Le premier porte sur le titre et au verso du dernier feuillet la première marque de l'imprimeur avec un arbre et un rouge-gorge, tandis que le second porte sa marque au Pégase. Ces marques sont généralement attribuées aux deux adresses de Wechel, la première rue Saint-Jacques, la seconde rue Saint-Jean-de-Beauvais, les deux adresses ayant coexisté à la fin des années 1530 jusqu'à l'abandon de la première. Les deux ouvrages sont ici la même adresse de la rue Saint-Jacques "à l'écu de Bâle". Le premier ouvrage comporte de nombreuses lettrines ornées de petit format en tête de … [Click Below for Full Description]

SFORTUNATI, GIOVANNI.
Venice, Nicolo di Aristotile detto Zoppino, 1534. 4to. Later full cloth with a bit of wear. Internally with a light damp-stain affecting lower outer margin of the first leaf and last two leaves. A few occasional marginal annotationS in contemporary hand. A very fine and clean copy. 129 ff. (including the final blank). Misnumbered 7 as 8, 71 as 72 and 107 as 105. ¶ The exceedingly rare first edition of Sfortunati's highly influential treatise on arithmetic for merchants. The work quickly became immensely popular and at least seven later editions soon followed.<br> <br>Whereas Pacioli's "Summa" (1494) and Calandri's "Arithmetica" (1491) were both very learned works, they did - in Sfortunati's own words - contain too much that was not useful for merchants and did not explain elementary notions well enough to be truly useful for beginners. This is obviously Sfortunati's attempt at promoting his own work, but true enough, his simple and pragmatic approach soon made his "Nuove Lume" one of the most popular works among Mid- and North-Italian merchants. <br><br>De Morgan wrongly states in "Arithmetical Books": "It is not likely a work would be originally printed at Venice, one cause of the production of which is stated to be the barbarism of the Venetian dialect." <br>The work is indeed printed in Venice, but written in Tuscan dialect. Giovanni Sfortunati (Johannes Infortunatus) - born in Siena around 1500 - introduces himself as a Sienese schoolmaster who had taught arithmetic all over Italy and Sicily.

(blank); (12) pp., 418 pp., (1) leaf (blank); (20) pp., 403 pp., (1) p. (blank), (60) lvs. 9 woodcut devices (3 different ones)and many woodcut initials. Two uniform bindings: Contemp. blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards (intensively rubbed, edges, corners, head and tail of spines restored, some soiling) from the workshop of the Wittenberg binder Franz Lind(e)ner with a roll dated "1536"; 4 original clasps, 2 later spine labels. Following Schweiger it is the fifth edition of Cicero’s complete works. Thus complete very rare. The contents: Part I: Rhetoric works and a vita after Livius; part II: Speeches; part III: letters; part IV: philosophical works, an extensive version of Cicero’s vita, annotations and the index. The cover decoration of the binding shows a rectangular central panel which is filled with two sets of floral roll work set to be mirror images to each other. These are surrounded by a roll of figures („Justici[a], Lucrecia, Pruden[tia], [Suavitas]" = Haebler Nr. 2) dated to 1536. Adjacent to this is a narrow frame (a double border horizontally) with rosettes with this, in turn, being surrounded by roll work with more figures (Salvator [„Data est mihi ois"] – David [„De fructu ven"] – Jesaias [„Sup Solium Dav"] – Johannes [„Ecce Agn Die"] = Haebler Nr. 4, EBDB r002402); the roll work is signed by the binder (F L) and by the engraver (MA); the binding therefore originated from the Wittenberg bookbinder Fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Impresa tipografica al titolo. Sparsi aloni, sporadici lavori di tarlo marginali non lesivi del testo. Firma rinascimentale al titolo. Ex-libris dello storico saluzzese Carlo Muletti (1786-1869); al verso della sguardia anteriore è applicato un frammento manoscritto in data 1803 con firma di possesso dello stesso Muletti e annotazione coeva di Carlo Capelli da Mondovì relativa alla firma di possesso del frontespizio e alla discendenza del tale da uno studioso di Clavesana. Reimpressione lionese cinquecentesca del capolavoro valliano, il trattato forse il più rilevante dell'Umanesimo italiano sotto il prospetto linguistico-retorico (assai forte fu il suo influsso sullo stesso Erasmo). L'opera intese propugnare la restaurazione della purezza del latino antico (con Cicerone e Quintiliano come paradigmi stilistici) contro l'imbarbarimento che di tale lingua si era avuto nel corso del Medioevo, sostenendo al contempo l'uso del latino come organismo linguistico vivo, in cui la diretta conoscenza degli autori classici predominava sull'apprendimento meccanico di regole pure.

Revenu à Autun au début de 1506, il y exerça la profession d'avocat jusqu'à sa nomination comme conseiller au Parlement de Dijon (janvier 1525), puis de Paris (juin 1531).

Bede or Beda Venerabilis (the venerable, 672/3 – 735) was one of the most important theologians of the early middle ages. His theological works, to which the present series of sermons belongs, were marked by their high authority. He was influential through his presentation of the history of the anglo-saxon church and as a result of a work on chronology; it was this work which helped to establish the term AD (Anno Domini). The front cover of the binding is divided into five panels. Top and bottom, two horizontal panels from right to left. Between these are three vertical panels of roughly the same size.

MONTANO GIOVANNI BATTISTA.
Nella Stamparia di Gio. de Rossi. Frontespizio architettonico, ritratto dell'autore con dedica ai lettori e 48 tavole incise in rame. Unito a: Raccolta de Tempii, e Sepolcri disegnati dall'Antico... Roma, Giacomo de' Rossi, s.a. (metà '600). 48 tavole incise in rame tra cui il rontespizio architettonico. Due opere legate in un volume in-folio (cm. 42), solida ed elegante legatura del tempo in piena pelle maculata, dorso a nervi con titoli su tassello e ricchi fregi in oro. Esemplare fresco, marginoso ed in eccellente stato di conservazione. Si tratta di due interessantissime serie di disegni architettonici inventati dallo scultore ed architetto milanese G.B. Montano (1534-1621). Quest'ultimo aveva lasciato un'imponente raccolta di rilievi, invenzioni e fantasie architettoniche e dopo la sua morte l'allievo G.B. Soria ne fece una selezione e prese a pubblicarli. L'opera ebbe un enorme successo e fornì materia di meditazione a tutta la prima generazione di architetti barocchi, tra cui il Borromini che si ispirò al Montano per la prospettiva di Palazzo Spada.

Castelli Bartolomeo
Brea Pietro. 8vo. (16), 434, (22, of which the last 2 are blank) pp. With the author's device on the title-page.17th century mottled calf, marbled edges, some foxing in the margins, but a very good copy. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of what was to become the most popular medical lexicon of all times. It was preceded by works as Otto Brunfels', Onomastikon medicinae (1534), Henri Estienne's Thesaurus vocabulorum medicinalium (1560) and his Dictionarium medicum (1564), Jean de Gorris', Definitionum medicarum libri XXIII literis graecis distincti (1564), and Anuce Foes', Oeconomia Hippocratis alphabeti distincta (1588). Whereas these earlier authors concentrated only on the terminology of the ancients, Castelli also considered also modern and contemporary authors. The medical terminology was at that time very confused, so that it was not easy for the physicians to agree on the meaning of a word. With the purpose to fill that gap, Castelli sketched a history of medicine from ancient Egypt, where it was built as an autonomous science, and from ancient Greece, where the discipline received its foundations with Hippocrates, to early modern Europe passing through the Arabic physicians. Castelli shows how the medical lexicon has continuously changed and grown over the centuries thanks to the contribution of the alchemists and Paracelsus. Castelli's lexicon covers all branches of medicine, including chemistry and physics. The Lexikon was reprinted many times until the end of the 18th century: Venice, 1607 and 1626; Basel, 1628; Rotterdam (revised by A. Ravenstein), 1644, 1651, 1657, and 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Greek letter with some Roman, printer’s device on title page and verso of last, else blank, nice woodcut white on black initials, four illustrating lovers embracing, title page slightly dusty, light age yellowing at beginning and end, some faint water stains on lower margins and upper inner corner throughout not affecting text, two interesting manuscript annotations on fly in same 18th century hand, one comparing variant manuscripts of the work, another on the author’s life and the present work. A very good, clean, copy in vellum over boards, spine with four raised bands. First edition of the oldest and best of all extant Greek novels and very probably the first European novel. It was first brought to light in modern times in a manuscript from the library of Matthias Corvinus, found at the sack of Buda (Ofen) in 1526, and first printed at Basel in 1534. It opens with a dedicatory letter in Latin by the editor Vincentius Obsopeus, German philologist of the early C16th, notable for his "élégantes traductions latines" (Hoefer).The story, developed in ten books, starts and ends in Ethiopia which gives the novel its title. In Charicleia, the daughter of the queen of Ethiopia, born white due to the effect of the sight of a marble statue upon the queen during her pregnancy, is raised by priests in Delphi, eventually becoming a priestess of Apollo herself. There she meets and falls in love with a noble Thessalian, Theagenes. The young lovers, of course, endur … [Click Below for Full Description]
