        Presentazione di Gesù al Tempio

      1535. Bulino, 1535 - 40 circa, priva di iscrizione. Da un cartone attribuito a Giulio Romano. Bellissima prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifiata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione riproduce uno dei 12 arazzi vaticani della serie Storie della vita di Cristo, tessuti a Bruxelles da Pieter van Aelst, dopo la morte di Raffaello, su cartoni degli allievi dell'Urbinate. Gli arazzi furono esposti per la prima volta nel 1531 nella Cappella Sistina. Sono anche detti della "Scuola Nuova", per distinguerli dai 10 arazzi di Raffaello, detti appunto della "Scuola Vecchia", ora nella pinacoteca vaticana. L'episodio della Presentazione al Tempio è narrato nel Vangelo secondo Luca (2,22 - 39): quaranta giorni dopo la Nascita, Giuseppe e Maria conducono Gesù al Tempio per "offrirlo" a Dio. Questa cerimonia era prescritta per tutti i figli maschi primogeniti in ossequio al comando di Esodo (13, 2.11 - 16). La scena raffigura Maria e Giuseppe che conducono il bambino Gesù davanti al sacerdote, nel Tempio, mentre diverse persone assistono. Le nove colonne tortili sono poste a evocare e rappresentare il Tempio di Salomone. Il cartone di questa Presentazione al Tempio è attribuito a Giulio Romano, mentre l'incisione è attribuita a Georges Reverdy, ma quest'attribuzione è rifiutata da Leutrat. Presso la Real Academia de San Fernando di Madrid, si conserva un disegno a sanguigna e matita nera, nello stesso verso dell'incisione. Opera molto rara. Engraving, 1535 - 40 circa, unlettered. After Giulio Romano A very good impression, printed with tone on contemporary laid paper, trimmed close to the platemark, very good condition. This etching reproduces a tapestry from a twelve - piece set of the Life of Christ, known as the Scuola Nuova to distinguish it from Raphael's earlier Acts of the Apostles, which was called the Scuola Vecchia. The tapestries appear to have been designed by Raphael's erst - while assistans after the death of the master in April 1520. Today in Vatican Collection. The set was woven by Pieter van Aelst in Bruxelles. The design of the Presentation is attributed to Giulio Romano. This etching was formerly attributed to Georger Reverdy, but Leutrat rejected this attribution. A very rare work. Baudi di Vesme 1938 14 Leutrat 2007 4 (rejected attribution) 323 275

        De Restitutis a Christianissimo Francorum rege Francisco [Bound with].

      1535. Two Rare Sixteenth-Century Works, One on Property Taxes, The Other on Usufruct Cop, Jean (Coppe, Johann, Copus Joannes). De Restitutis a Christianissimo Francorum Rege Francisco Francisco Literis, Ioannis Copi Parisiensis Iurisconsulti Oration, Ad Iudices Academiae Parisiensis Emendatores, In Amplissimo Iurisperitorum Consessu Habita, Cum de Proposito Fructuum Iure Esset Responsurus. Paris: Ex Officina Christiani Wecheli, Sub Scuto Basiliensi, 1535. [20] pp. [Bound with] Cop, Jean. De Fructibus Libri Quatuor. Paris: Ex Officina Christiani Wecheli sub Scuto Basiliensi, 1536. [xvi], 263, [1] pp. Quarto (8-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary limp vellum, ties lacking, early hand-lettered titles to spine and foot of text block. Light soiling and minor staining, some rubbing to extremities, hinges starting, a few partial cracks to text block. Moderate toning to text, early owner signatures to title page of De Restitutis, brief annotations to a few leaves. * De Restitutis, Only edition; De Fructibus, first edition. Two interesting titles by a little known Parisian lawyer. The first of these, De Restitutis, is an oration on property taxes (civil fruits) in civil law. The second work, De Fructibus, is a treatise on usufruct in Roman and canon law. A second edition of this work was published in 1583. Bibliographically distinct, it appears these two titles were often bound together. Both titles are rare. In North America, OCLC locates no copies of De Restitutis, 1 copy of the 1536 edition of De Fructibus (at Harvard Law School), 2 copies of its 1583 edition (at Princeton University and UC-Berkeley) and 2 copies of the 1636 edition of De Restitutis bound with De Fructibus (at Brigham Young University and Columbia). Neither title in Adams or the British Museum Catalogue.

        Tabula Nova Italiae

      1535. Carta geografica della penisola, per la prima volta stampata da Laurent Fries nel 1522. La carta, riduzione di quella edita dal Waldseemuller nel 1513, doveva servire per una sorta di cronica del mondo a cura dello stesso Waldseemuller, la cui morte interruppe il progetto. Tratta dalla Geografia di Tolomeo, a cura di M. Servetus e G. Treschel, stampata a Lione nel 1535, si differenzia dalla prima edizione del Fries per la presenza del titolo nel cartiglio in alto, e la mancanza al verso del testo. Nella successiva ristampa del 1541 il titolo viene cambiato. Xilografia, leggera ossidazione alla piega centrale, per il resto in eccellente stato di conservazione. Rara. Map of the peninsula, printed for the fist time by Laurent Fries in 1522. This map, as a reduction of Waldseemuller's edition of 1513, was meant to be part of a world cronica edited by Waldseemuller himself, but he died before finishing his project. The map derives from Ptolemy's Geografia edited by M. Servetus and G. Treschel, printed in Lyons in 1535; it differs form Fries' first edition because the title is in the cartouche on the upper side and for the lack of the text on verso. In the 1541 edition, the title has then been changed. Woodcut, light oxidation on central fold, in general in good condition. Rare. Lione Lyon R. Borri "L'Italia nelle antiche carte..."

        Lexicon de partibus aedium...

      apud Haeredes Simonis, Vincentii, 1535. Cm. 15,5, pp. 361 (47). Marchio tipografico al frontespizio. Solida legatura settecentesca in piena pergamena rigida con titoli su tassello al dorso. Qualche fioritura, per lo più marginale, peraltro ben conservato. Buona edizione, condotta sulla stampa parmense del 1516, di questa celebre enciclopedia delle "antichità private". L'autore vi indica i nomi con cui venivano chiamate le varie parti della casa e di tutte le cose che in essa potevano entrarvi. Interessante per i termini usati nella costruzione di edifici e giardini e per la trattazione delle cose domestiche, librerie, giardini, granai, cucine, bagni, stalle, fontane, ecc. Di grande validità anche per la comprensione e la conoscenza della vita sociale nel Rinascimento. Si segnalano inoltre capitoli su medicina e gastronomia. Cfr. Brunet II, 1710 e Oberlé (605) che evidenzia tutti i tratti di interesse gastronomico ed enologico (dall'organizzazione della cucina ai cibi e le bevande che si debbono servire al cenacolo).

        Vergine col Bambino, S. Giovannino e S. Elisabetta

      1535. Bulino, databile al terzo decennio del XVI secolo, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre, con il lato in luce della culla terminato. Bellissima prova, ricca di toni di lastra, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "stella nel cerchio", rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera riproduce la composizione della cosiddetta Piccola Sacra Famiglia (1518 - 19), un dipinto conservato al Louvre ed attribuito in passato a Raffaello ora invece assegnato a Giulio Romano o Giovanni Francesco Penni. Tuttavia potrebbe derivare anche da un anonimo disegno a sanguigna conservato a Windsor, sempre attribuito a Giulio. L'incisione rappresenta un ottimo esempio della maestria tecnica del Caraglio, con una serie di segni incrociati che forniscono un forte contrasto tonale. La rarità dei primi stati, con la culla in basso a destra non completata, lascia supporre che il solo stato finale sia il risultato voluto dall'artista. Magnifico esemplare. Engraving, circa 1530, signed at lower left. After Giulio Romano. Example in the third state of three, with the cradle completed. A fine impression, rich of tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with "star in a circle" watermark, trimmed to the platemark, in perfect conditions. The work reproduces the composition of the so - called Little Holy Family (1518 - 19), a painting in the Louvre and attributed to Raphael in the past but now assigned to Giulio Romano and Giovanni Francesco Penni. However, it could also result from an anonymous drawing stored at Windsor, and attributed to Giulio Romano. The engraving is a good example of technical mastery of Caraglio, with a number of signs crossed that provide a strong tonal contrast. The rarity of the first states, with the cradle at the bottom right is not complete, suggesting that only the final state is the desired result by the artist. A magnific example. Bartsch XV, p. 69, 5; TIB, p. 87, 005 III/III; Massari, Giulio Romano, p. 62, 53; Passavant VI, p. 96, 5; Massari, Raphael Invenit, p. 207, XXXIX. 220 305

Relief shown pictorially. Includes names of places and natural features.Descriptive text within ornamental borders on verso.Lorenz (Laurent) Fries, (Stra§burg 1520-1531).Fries' first venture into mapmaking was in 1520, for that is the date found on a map of the World, bearing his monogram. However, Fries' role is uncertain. The map was a reduction of Martin Waldseemuller's wall-map of the World, published in 1507. While it would appear that Fries was the editor of the map, credit is actually given in the title to Peter Apian. There is no evidence that Fries was a woodcutter, which might have offered an alternative explanation for the appearance of his monogram. The two other monograms that appear are of Johann Camers, editor of the book containing the map, and of Luca Alantse, the publisher.The major project that Fries and Gruninger worked on was a new edition of the Geographia of Claudius Ptolemy, which was published by Johann Koberger in 1522. Here again, Fries evidently edited the maps, in most cases simply producing a reduction of the equivalent map from the 1513 edition of the Geographie Opus Novissima, printed by Johann Schott. Fries also prepare three new maps for the Geographie: maps of South-East Asia and the East Indies, China and the World, but the geography of these derives from Waldseemuller's world map of 1507.

(In fine:) Stampata in Napoli, per Matthio Canze da Brescia, e Ioannes Sultzbach todesco compagni. Ne l?anno del nostro Segnore M.D.XXXV adi 8 del mese de giuglio (1535)

      Cancer Matteo, 1535. in - 4 (mm 215x156), ff. 294 non num., caratt. corsivo. Leg. coeva in pergamena floscia, titolo ms. al dorso. Titolo racchiuso entro bella bordura silografica, a centro pagina altro legno raffig. un falco; una iniziale istoriata. Prima edizione di questo rimario e vocabolario fondamentale per la lingua italiana. Secondo Benedetto Croce fu "il primo lavoro di qualche ampiezza che comparve in questo genere". L'autore nacque a Napoli ed insegnò ivi ed a Sarno. Fu il più importante divulgatore della lingua nell'Italia meridionale, amico di Bernardo Tasso, Pietro Bembo, Paolo Manuzio e benvoluto da Carlo V. Elegante edizione in carattere corsivo, con il tondo ad evidenziare le maiuscole e le rime. Tutti gli esemplari noti, ad eccezione del presente e di quello della Casanatense, riportano la sottoscrizione "per Matthio Canze da Brescia: e ad instantia de li honorabili huomini Antonio Iouino et Francesco Vitolo librari napoletani compagni" con la stessa data. La variante tipografica nel colophon di questi due esemplari, sconosciuta al Manzi, assume una notevole importanza nel complesso quadro delle società editoriali napoletane del Cinquecento: infatti Matteo Cancer (nativo di Bione presso Brescia) iniziò la sua attività nel 1529 associandosi a Giovanni Sultzbach, ma il 16 ottobre 1532 fondò la propria officina, avvalendosi di finanziatori tra cui Antonio Iovino et Francesco Vitolo. Esemplare assai genuino, a grandi margini, in attraente legatura originale (strappetto all'angolo bianco del tit., qualche leggero alone d'umido, legatura con lievi difetti ma intatta).

Elle comprend 25 bois gravés dans le texte (dont la carte de la Grèce répétée deux fois), une grande sphère au titre et une représentation de l'univers au verso. Belle marque typographique au chat de Sessa au verso du dernier feuillet.

        Coelestium rerum disciplinae, atque totius sphaericae... variorum astrolabiorum compositionem seu fabricam, necnon eorundem usuum ac variarum utilitatum explanationem...

      Mainz, P. Jordan für P. Quentell in Köln 1535. Flexibler Pergament-Einband aus einer alten Antiphonar-Hanschrift. Fol. 8 nn., 77 num., 1 nn. Bll., mit 3 (1 gefalt.) Holzschnitt-Tafeln. -- Erste Ausgabe unter diesem Titel. Von Stoeffler selbst bearbeitete, von Jordan erganzte und edierte Neuausgabe der grundlegenden Arbeit uber Astrolabien (\"Elucidatio fabricae ususque astrolabii\", Oppenheim 1513). Zahlreiche Holzschnitte mit Scheiben des Astrolabs. Die drei Holzschnitt-Tafeln zeigen ein Astrolab von Johannes Stoeffler, von welchem kein Astrolab erhalten geblieben ist. Am Schluss die Schrift \"De mensurationibus geometricis\", hierzu 14 grosse figurliche Holzschnitte, die Vermessungsvorgange in Landschaft u. an Gebauden illustrieren. -- Ohne die beiden Tafeln mit den auszuschneidenden beweglichen Teilen, dafür aber mit den sehr seltenen drei Tafeln von Stoefflers Astrolab sowie dem ebenfalls häufig fehlenden letzten Blatt mit der ganzseitigen Holzschnitt-Druckermarke von Peter Jordan. -- Einband etwas fleckig, mit 2 von 4 Bindebändern, zwei der Holzschnitt-Tafeln seitlich leicht angeschnitten, mit kleinem Nadelstich durch das Buch (ohne Verlust und meistens kaum sichtbar). Vorderer Innendeckel sowie hinterer fliegender Vorsatz mit alten handschriftlichen Anmerkungen aus dem 17. bzw. 18. Jahrhundert. -- -- Stoeffler\'s treatise on the making and use of the astrolabe was originally printed in Oppenheim in 1513 (an English translation was published in 2007); this edition contains plates illustrating his lost astrolabe. These pictures are particularly important, as no astrolabes by Stoeffler survive. Stoeffler taught mathematics and astronomy at the University of Tu¨bingen, where both Philipp Melanchthon and Sebastian Munster were his students. Without the two leaves containing figures, which should normally be inserted in the text, but with the very rare plates showing the Astrolab by Stoeffler, which are lacking in most copies.

        HERBARUM IMAGINES VIVAE. DER KREUTER LEBLICHE CONTRAFAYTUNG

      Frankfurt: Christian Egenolphus, 1535. FIRST EDITION y. This is an outstanding copy, with notably pleasing hand coloring, of printer Christian Egenolph's first small format--and thus extremely practical--herbal, one of the most important and now highly sought after early editions of its kind. The text that appears here, in addition to the title and index, is the name of each plant, given in Latin (in roman type) and German (in gothic type). The woodcuts show us the entire plant, from roots to bloom, and from two to five specimens are artfully arranged on each page. There are familiar garden flowers (rose, iris, violet, columbine), medicinal and culinary herbs (Saint John's wort, rosemary, rue, mint), gourds and fruits, grains, and such potential intoxicants as wine grapes, hops, and cannabis. A second part of "Herbarum" with 65 woodcuts appeared in 1536; our first edition had proved so popular that it had sold out by then, and Egenolph found it necessary to print new copies to accompany part II. Egenolph [or Egenolff] (1502-55) was not a botanical writer, but had studied the humanities before entering the printing trade. He opened his Frankfurt workshop in 1530, and published about 400 volumes over the next quarter century, most of these popular vernacular works, many of them illustrated. The botanical cuts here are based on the illustrations by Weidlitz used in Brunfels' 1530 herbal, published by Johann Schott of Strassburg. Egenolph planned to use these woodcuts in a 1533 edition of Eucharius Rosslin's "Kreutterbuch," but Schott filed a lawsuit for plagiarism and succeeded in seizing the blocks. Undeterred, Egenolph ordered more woodcuts of the same design--those used here and in later editions of his herbals and those of his heirs. The printer's daughter Magdalena married Adam Lonicer, an employee of the press, who became director of the firm after Egenolph's death and produced a number of noted botanical books. Herbals tend to be heavily used books, and the present copy is remarkably free of the stains, thumbing, and tears that so often afflict such works. Only five other copies of our book seem to have appeared at auction in the past 40 years.. 197 x 127 mm. (7 3/4 x 5"). 40, [4] leaves. Part I, only, of two. FIRST EDITION. Modern printed paper boards with blue floral pattern. WITH 226 BOTANICAL WOODCUTS, ALL WITH BEAUTIFUL CONTEMPORARY HAND COLORING. Two leaves with pencilled marginalia. Nissen BBI 2344; Fairfax-Murray 196; Pritzel 2626 (1536 printing); Adams H-293. Not in Hunt. A couple of minor marginal stains, otherwise AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, clean, crisp, and bright with saturated colors, in an unworn binding.

        Reverendi P. fratris Hieronymi Savonarolae ordinis praedicatorum dialogus, cui titulus Solatium itineris mei.

      [colophon: Venetiis: per Ioannem Patauinum & Venturinum de Ruffinellis 16mo (10.9 cm; 4.375"). [83] of [84] ff., lacks final blank.. 1535] First edition of this dialogue "nunc primum impressus" in seven books written by the vexatious Dominican priest Girolamo Savonarola (1452–98) on God, faith, and ecclesia. The sixth book De vita futura treats punishment of the Bad and the glory of the Good. Of this work there exist two redactions, both published posthumously: One incomplete in three books (Venice 1537), and this, complete in seven. Savonarola probably composed these consolations ca. 1497 (see Giovannozzi) — the year he was excommunicated, and one year prior to his public burning at the stake in Florence. Printed in roman type, 23 lines in single-column format, with side- and shouldernotes and with woodcut initials at the beginning of each book, this bears on its title-page a woodcut printer's device of a phoenix in flames facing the sun. Errata are printed on the recto of the final leaf. 20th-century vellum, a bit sprung, with remnant of an old paper shelf label at base; lacks final blank (only). Light brown stain in upper part of last two leaves and even lighter old staining elsewhere; otherwise, the odd spot only. Very good.

Phoenix. Carmen de Dominica Resurrectione. Item index in eundem rerum omnium. Tertulliani liber apologeticus cum indice.

      [colophon: Venetiis: In aedibus haeredum Aldi, et Andreae soceri] 8vo (16 cm, 6.25"). [16], 328, [10], [2 (blank)], 47, [1 (blank)], [44] ff.. 1535 Lactantius was a North African writer (ca. 240–320), born a pagan and converted to Christianity, whose polished style earned him, during the Renaissance, the sobriquet of "the Christian Cicero." According to the New Catholic Encyclopedia, Jerome admired his writings, judging their strengths and weaknesses as apologetics somewhat wistfully: "Would that he had been able to establish our teachings as well as he demolished that of others." The editio princeps of Lactantius was issued in 1465, and the first Aldine in 1515. Like that latter, this edition includes also a short "Apologetic" by Tertullian, with a preface by Giovanni Battista Egnazio; and it bears for the first time a new preface on Lactantius by Paulus Manutius. Renouard notes that => this is an excellent edition, better than the first Aldine of 1515, and that one of the editors, Onorato Fascitello, had consulted the manuscripts of Lactantius found at Monte Cassino in preparation for it. Spaces have been left for initials throughout, unaccomplished; the whole is in Aldine italic, and the Aldine dolphin and anchor is found both on the title- and the last page. In this copy gathering "a" is in duplicate. Evidence of readership: Scattered substantive marginalia in Latin to about leaf 140. Provenance: Note on front pastedown reads, "E libris C. Brinsden, 1737. Dr. Ferrari, Librarian to Lord Leicester . . . exchanged this with me and some other books for two books of Fronterino, which were placed in his Lordship's library at Holkam in Norfolk." Later 18th-century signature of R. Compton on front free endpaper. Late 19th- or early 20th-century bookplate of American collector Fritz Hermann Jordan on front free endpaper verso. Early limp vellum with remnants of ties, dust-soiled. Text with waterstaining, sometimes very noticeable; some worming in margins costing parts of some marginalia; last few leaves of volume's "names and things" index damaged in upper outer corner costing a few words and numbers on its last page. Certainly not a pristine copy but one with an interesting provenance and research-worthy marginalia.

        Libro primo de la Conqvista del Perv & prouincia del Cuzco de le Indie occidentali.

      [colophon: Vinegia {i.e., Venice}: Stampato per Stephano da Sabio 4to. [62] ff.. 1535] As one of the "Men of Cajamarca," Francisco de Xerez holds a very special place among writers on the earliest period of Spanish contact with the Inca of Peru: He was there from day one, a member of the very small band of men who left Panama with Pizarro and Almagro to seek fame and fortune in South America. At Cajamarca he participated in the taking of the Inca leader Atahuallpa, the slaughter of his army, and the sharing of the ransom demanded of the Inca nation for the return of their leader. By training a notary public and practiced writer, he was by choice Pizarro's secretary/confidant, the two having been close since at least 1524, when they met in Panama; and when in 1534 he returned to Spain, he took with him his share of the wealth of Atahualpa, a broken leg, and a tale to tell that was significant, stirring, and in fact tellable by no other man. He conceived of his book as being at once a socially and politically useful celebration of Pizarro's deeds and his own, a celebration of the glory of Spain as that was expressing itself in a remote and wondrous New World, and as a => true entertainment cast in the tradition of the romance of chivalry; not surprisingly, it was a blockbuster. Xerez's eyewitness account of the conquest of Peru was originally published in Spain in 1534 in Spanish as the Verdadera relación de la conquista del Peru y Provincia del Cuzco llamada la Nueva Castilla. Demand for news of the new, "exotic" kingdom of Peru, which had only been conquered in 1532, was found to be keen not only in Spain but all across Europe, leading to this rapid translation into Italian. Appended to Xerez's account (fols. [43v] to [55r]) is a translation of => Miguel de Estete's account of Pizarro's army's journey from Cajamarca to Pachacamac and then to Jauja. Estete too was present at Cajamarca and is said to have been the first Spaniard to lay hands on Atahuallpa. Both of these first translations into Italian are from the pen of Domingo de Gaztelu (secretary of Don Lope de Soria, Charles V's ambassador to Venice) and are taken from the second edition of the Spanish-language original. The text is printed in roman type and has a large heraldic woodcut device on the title-page and a xylographic printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. 20th-century boards covered with a stone-pattern marbled paper. Old auction description on front pastedown, collector's bookplate on front free endpaper, bookseller's very small stamp on rear pastedown. Light discoloration to margins of first leaf and last leaf with a few small holes from insect damage (silverfish?) in blank area; some signatures browned and others creamy. => A very good copy.

Title printed in red and black with woodcut block border depicting strewn armor and dueling knights with wreathed portrait of Cicero at top and plaques with monogram initials of Roman Emperors Fabius Maximus, Julius Caesar, and Alexander Magnus. 136 woodcut in-text illustrations depicting lives of primitive humans, the famous Vitruvian Man on p. XXII, constellations, rules for perspective, and other mathematical figures and diagrams of architecture. Woodcut historiated chapter initials throughout of repeating portraits. Translated by Benedetto Giovio (1471-1545). Edited by Francesco Lutio Durantino. 19th-century calf with decorative stamps, spine stamped in gilt TRAT DE ARCH, endpapers renewed; (loose in binding, some margins trimmed close, some light worming, at least six early cancelled inscriptions on title, leaf CX with significant excision, otherwise an crisp and clean text block with wonderful woodcut impressions). 19th-century inscription on fly-leaf "Famoza Archi-tectura." Another 19th-century inscription on front flyleaf, "Presented to the Mercantile Library Association of New York by Philip A Reach .Consul/ Lisbon Jan. 7 1848." Sold in 1958 "on removal of Architecture Books from the Library" (pencil note). Rare illustrated Durantino edition of Vitruvius printed in Venice by Zoppino in 1535. This Vitruvius work was first printed in 1521 for Como. As it gained notoriety, another edition in the vernacular Italian was prepared by Giovanni Antonio and Pietro de’ Nicolino da Sabbio in 1524. It incorporated woodcuts from a 1511 Latin edition produced by Giovanni Giocondo in Venice (Tacuino). This Zoppino printing had a newly redesigned title-leaf with an elaborate woodcut border of chivalric battle scenes between Augustus Caesar, Julius Caesar, and Alexander the Great. The 136 in-text woodcuts are an all too interesting miscellany of late-medieval life, nature, and architecture and are characteristic of Vitruvian ideals in regards to proportion, ornament, language, space, place and beauty. The famous figure of "Symmetria" (Vitruvian Man) is present on p. XXII. Both the 1524 and 1535 editions were widely read by an Italian public. Vitruvian principles deeply influenced early Renaissance artists, thinkers, and architects who believed they were rediscovering an ancient discipline which would be the foundation of their culture.

        Catecismo mexicano.

      The first edition of Father Ignacio de Paredes's translation of Father Ripalda's Spanish-language catechism into Nahuatl. Both men were Jesuits, but in different centuries and on different continents: Ripalda was born in Spain in 1535 and died in 1618, never having left Europe; Paredes was born in Mexico in 1703 and died there the year this book was published, hailed as one of the most important Nahuatl scholars of the period.Beristain describes Paredes as being "outstanding in the Mexican language." His volume was intended for use by missionaries, by parish priests, and by Indians: Indeed, there is a => prologue intended to persuade Indians in particular to read and learn this catechism. The volume is illustrated with woodcut arms on the verso of the second title-page and bears many woodcut initials and tailpieces throughout => This copy retains Ortuño's engraved frontispiece (often missing) of St. Francis. Binding: A very interesting contemporary Mexican sprinkled calf binding, probably by a "provincial" binder. Covers with a single gilt-roll border having a modest corner device in each corner, that tool reused to form a four-part center design on each cover; same gilt-roll used on spine to accent the slightly raised bands and form spine compartments, one of these compartments with a spine-label and one having the covers' corner device gilt-tooled at its center. Board edges also with a gilt-roll design; all edges green. Highly unusual endpapers of a pattern in blue and red resembling images of strings in string theory: This is the first time we have ever seen this pattern.

        Libro primo de la Conqvista del Perv & prouincia del Cuzco de le Indie occidentali.

      [colophon: Vinegia {i.e., Venice}: Stampato per Stephano da Sabio 4to. [62] ff.. 1535] As one of the "Men of Cajamarca," Francisco de Xerez holds a very special place among writers on the earliest period of Spanish contact with the Inca of Peru: He was there from day one, a member of the very small band of men who left Panama with Pizarro and Almagro to seek fame and fortune in South America. At Cajamarca he participated in the taking of the Inca leader Atahuallpa, the slaughter of his army, and the sharing of the ransom demanded of the Inca nation for the return of their leader. By training a notary public and practiced writer, he was by choice Pizarro's secretary/confidant, the two having been close since at least 1524, when they met in Panama; and when in 1534 he returned to Spain, he took with him his share of the wealth of Atahualpa, a broken leg, and a tale to tell that was significant, stirring, and in fact tellable by no other man. He conceived of his book as being at once a socially and politically useful celebration of Pizarro's deeds and his own, a celebration of the glory of Spain as that was expressing itself in a remote and wondrous New World, and as a => true entertainment cast in the tradition of the romance of chivalry; not surprisingly, it was a blockbuster. Xerez's eyewitness account of the conquest of Peru was originally published in Spain in 1534 in Spanish as the Verdadera relación de la conquista del Peru y Provincia del Cuzco llamada la Nueva Castilla. Demand for news of the new, "exotic" kingdom of Peru, which had only been conquered in 1532, was found to be keen not only in Spain but all across Europe, leading to this rapid translation into Italian. Appended to Xerez's account (fols. [43v] to [55r]) is a translation of => Miguel de Estete's account of Pizarro's army's journey from Cajamarca to Pachacamac and then to Jauja. Estete too was present at Cajamarca and is said to have been the first Spaniard to lay hands on Atahuallpa. Both of these first translations into Italian are from the pen of Domingo de Gaztelu (secretary of Don Lope de Soria, Charles V's ambassador to Venice) and are taken from the second edition of the Spanish-language original. The text is printed in roman type and has a large heraldic woodcut device on the title-page and a xylographic printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. 20th-century boards covered with a stone-pattern marbled paper. Old auction description on front pastedown, collector's bookplate on front free endpaper, bookseller's very small stamp on rear pastedown. Light discoloration to margins of first leaf and last leaf with a few small holes from insect damage (silverfish?) in blank area; some signatures browned and others creamy. => A very good copy.
