        D. Severini Boethii...De Consolatione Philosophiae Libri Quinque...Iohannis Murmellij (Partim Etiam Rodolphi Agricolae) Commentarijs Illustrati [Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy, With Commentaries By Johannes Murmellius and Rodolphus Agricola]

      Ex officina Eucharij Ceruicorni. Hardcover. B00MU41EFE In Latin. One of the first Humanist editions of the immortal 'Consolation of Philosophy.' 1535 first edition Ex Officina Eucharij Ceruicorni (Cologne, Germany), 4 1/8 x 6 inches tall hardbound, green marbled paper-covered boards over leather spine, gilt design and gilt-lettered green and red morocco labels to spine, [48], 399 pp. Modest soiling and edgewear to covers. Title page soiled, with early faded prior owner names. A couple of lines with faded early underlining. Otherwise, apart from mild age-toning, especially to margins, a very good copy of this rare and handsome post-incunable pocket edition of Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy, accompanied by commentaries (printed in Gothic type) by Flemish scholar and humanist Johannes Murmellius (circa 1480-1517) and scholar and father of northern European humanism Rodolphus Agricola (1443/44 -1485). OCLC (Nos. 702169404, 714944464 and 801129411) locates only three copies of this edition worldwide, at Yale, Bibliotheque Cantonale in Switzerland and Biblioteca della Fondazione in Italy. ~CC~ This was the first edition edited by Johannes Caesarius (circa 1468-1550), an important humanist at the beginning of the modern era. After his studies in Cologne and Paris, including a doctorate, Caesarius practiced medicine for a number of years before returning to teaching and writing about 1524 in Mainz. When this edition was published in 1535, he was teaching in Leipzig and was known for his textbooks on grammar and rhetoric. The author of the Consolation, Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius (circa 480-524/525 AD), was a scholar and philosopher born in Rome to an ancient and prominent family which included emperors and many consuls. His father, Flavius Manlius Boethius, was consul in 487 after Odoacer deposed the last Western Roman Emperor. Boethius entered public life at a young age, was a senator by the age of 25 and became a leading counselor to Ostrogothic king Theoderic, who ruled Italy from 493 to 526. In 523, at the height of his influence, Boethius was accused by fellow-senators of plotting against the king, imprisoned in Pavia and executed in 524. While jailed, Boethius composed this, his De Consolatione Philosophiae, in which he sought through philosophy to come to terms with the vicissitudes of fortune and the apparent triumph of evil. Written in Latin prose interspersed with more lyrical passages in verse, it takes the form of a dialogue between Boethius and philosophy, personified as a woman. It became one of the most popular and influential works of the Middle Ages. Several manuscripts survived and these were widely edited, translated and printed throughout the late 15th century and later in Europe. The printer of this volume, Eucharius Cervicornus (fl. 1516-1547), was a native of Cologne who printed both there and in Marburg, Germany. . Very Good. 1535. First Edition.

        Norbegia et Gottia.

      1535 - Lyons: Melchor & Gaspar Treschel, 1535. Woodcut, printed area 340 x 450mm. A very fine example of the Fries issue of Wäldseemüller's 'modern' map of Scandinavia, in turn a faithful copy of the first map of the region printed in Ulm in 1482. Norway, Sweden and Iceland are virtually unrecognisable; at the top, east of Iceland, is Greenland, connected by a narrow isthmus to the rest of Scandinavia. The rest of Europe follows the Ptolemaic format. The title is on a bandarole above the map; the text on the right edge of the map describes the lenghening hours of daylight as a traveller moves north. Originally intended not for a Ptolemy edition but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of the 'Geography'. The editior of this edition was Michael Servetus, who was burned at the stake for heresy in 1553; John Calvin ordered that copies of the 'Geography' should be burnt with him.

        NEMESIS una cum duobus hymnis, ad Arnoldum Ferronum iuris consultum

      Paris:: Michel Vascosan,, 1535.. First Edition. 8vo, [24] leaves; text in italic; historiated woodcut initials. BOUND WITH: SCALIGER, LACRYMAE, Prosopopoeia Christianissimi Francorum Regis Francisci Valesii. Paris: Vascosan, 1534. 29, [1] p., [1] blank leaf; text in italic; historiated woodcut initials. The two works bound together in modern boards; a few inoffensive faint dampstains o/w a very nice clean copy. Quite rare: the only copy of the Lacrymae in America is that at Harvard, while the Nemesis is represented by two copies (Newberry and U. of Illinois). § Moreau IV, nos. 1418 and 1139; Cioranesco 20500 and 20499; M. Magnien, "Jules-César Scaliger et ses imprimeurs," Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance, XLIV (1982), pp. 314 and 313. First editions of two of the earliest Neo-Latin verse productions by the celebrated humanist Julius Caesar Scaliger (1484-1558), father of the even more celebrated Joseph Scaliger. Scaliger was an Italian scholar and physician spending a major part of his career in France. He was the first to attempt a systematic treatise on poetry: "Poetices Libri Septem" (Geneva, 1561; Leyden, 1581; Heidelberg, 1607). The general principles of this work are derived from Aristotle whom he calls "imperator noster; omnium bonarum artium dictator perpetuus". Like Aristotle he makes imitation the basis of all poetry. As a physician he was much interested in botany and wrote commentaries on the treatises on plants of Theophrastes and Aristotle. In the iambic poem Nemesis Scaliger imitated the didactic poem Manto by Angelo Poliziano, a poem (first published in 1482) in which the prophetess Manto foretold the future greatness of Virgil. Following the Nemesis are two iambic hymns, one to God the Father, the other to the Virgin of Agen (the town where Scaliger had settled after leaving his native Italy). Both the Nemesis and the hymns are introduced by substantial dedicatory prefaces addressed to the then 20-year old jurist and future historian and Counsel of the Bordeaux Parlement, Arnoul Le Ferron (1515-1563). The Lacrymae ("Tears") are elegiacs on the death of famous contemporaries, including the Duke of Longueville, killed at the Battle of Pavia; the final poem is a dirge on the death of Scaliger's own two-year old daughter Margarita (Margaritae Scaligerae filiolae bimulae acerbum interitum deflet). The Lacrymae are preceded by two dedicatory prefaces: the first addressed to printer Michel Vascosan, the other to the prominent scholar and Neo-Latin poet Nicolas Bourbon (1503-1550).

        C. PLINII SECUNDI HISTORIA MUNDI

      Basel, per Hieronymum Frobenium, Io. Hervagium, & Nicolaum Episcopium, 1535.denuo emendata, non paucis locis ex diligenti ad pervetusta et optimae fidei exemplaria collatione nunc primu[m] animadversis castigatisq[ue], quemadmodum evidenter in Sigismundi Gelenij annotationibus operi adnexis apparet. Adiunctus est Index copiosissimus. Printer's names from colophon on page 671, Latin text, 1535, folio, approximately 370 x 245 mm, 14½ x 9¾ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, on verso page 671 and on verso of final leaf, with 37 large historiated initials and small decorated initials in the Table, pages: (36), 671, (181), 51 of these unnumbered pages contain Gelenius' annotations, followed by 130 pages of index, bound in full contemporary blind tooled pig - skin over wooden boards, with 2 brass clasps in working order, raised bands to spine with blind tooling in compartments, no lettering. Covers soiled and stained, 110 mm (4½ inch) cut to leather on upper cover, small loss of leather to lower corner on upper board, the other corners slightly worn, 4 wormholes to lower cover, 1 to upper cover, red stain filling lowest compartment of spine, upper hinge cracked at top 25 mm (1 inch), tiny crack to lower hinge at top, "Plinius" inked neatly across fore - edges, large handcoloured old armorial bookplate to front pastedown, with most of name and part of motto erased, inscription below bookplate erased and messy stain above it, old ink inscription erased in upper margin of title page, 4 small old paper repairs to reverse of title page, 3 at inner edge and 1 in blank area needed because of slight damage caused by horizontal crease which is repeated on A2, single small wormhole in inner margin from title to page 71, another to fore - edge of last 7 leaves of index, 2 very small closed margin edge tears, tiny closed tear to upper edge of 6 consecutive pages, a few brief early marginal notes, a little neat underlining, 1 pointing hand, contents otherwise very clean and bright. Pasted onto rear pastedown is a large sheet of paper with a drawing of a labyrinth on it in old ink and a reference in Latin mentioning the story of Theseus and Ariadne. Binding tight and sound. A good sound copy of this classic encyclopedic work. This is the first printing of the Naturalis Historia with annotations by the Bohemian humanist Gelenius. The text is preceded by a preface by Erasmus of Rotterdam, reprinted from his edition of 1525. Gaius Plinius Secundus, known as Pliny the Elder, was born in Como, Italy, in A.D. 23. By the time he died 56 years later, he had been a cavalry officer, an adviser to emperors and the author of at least 75 books, not to mention another 160 volumes of unpublished notebooks. He is remembered today for just one of those works, his 37 - volume Naturalis Historia (also entitled Historia Mundi), in which he planned to "set forth in detail all the contents of the entire world." Pliny describes in detail the nature of the physical universe: geography, anthropology, zoology, botany, and the medicinal uses of plants and curatives derived from the animals, among a host of other topics including mathematics, astronomy, agriculture, history and the arts and letters. Although dubious as a work of science, Pliny's Historia Naturalis provides a unique glimpse into the world view of ancient Rome. It is a wonderful melange of the real and the fantastic, the never was and the never could be. He wrote of dog - headed people who communicated by barking, and people with no heads at all, their eyes in their shoulders. He wrote of snakes that launch themselves skyward to catch high - flying birds, and of the "basilisk serpent" of Africa, which kills bushes on contact, bursts rocks with its breath and is so venomous that when one was killed by a man on horseback, "the infection rising through the spear killed not only the rider but also the horse." The work became a model for all later encyclopedias in terms of the breadth of subject matter examined, the need to reference original authors, and a comprehensive index list of the contents. The work was dedicated to the emperor Titus, son of Pliny's close friend, the emperor Vespasian, in the first year of Titus' reign. It is the only work by Pliny to have survived, and the last that he published, lacking a final revision at his sudden and unexpected death. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

First editions.Myles Coverdale's (c. 1488-1569) Bible, printed in 1535, was the first full Bible in English. His was a reforming mission, an inheritor of the mantel of William Tyndale (c. 1494-1536), who had produced his New Testament in 1526. Coverdale, being ignorant of Greek and Hebrew, relied on a number of earlier Bible editions in Latin, but also versions in English and German (‘Douche';). Tyndale';s efforts at translation ran into thorny theological (and political) issues that ended in his being burnt at the stake a year after Coverdale';s translation appeared. Nevertheless Coverdale';s version was widely influential, and with Tyndale';s version was a key influence on the Great Bible that appeared in 1540 and was issued to over 9000 parishes.William Morgan (1545-1604) unlike Coverdale studied the Bible in the original languages for seven years, being proficient not only in Greek and Hebrew, but Syriac as well. His was the first full Bible in Welsh, just as Coverdale';s was in English. As far back as 1567, while he was still studying at Cambridge) Morgan had his translation of the New Testament published by William Salesbury (c. 1520-c. 1584) Having been ordained a clergyman in the Church of England by the Bishop of Ely, in 1578 Morgan moved to the parish of Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant where in the early 1580s he began the serious work of producing a Welsh Old Testament, a project that he considered to be of great theological importance. This finally appeared with a revision of Salesbury';s New Testament in London in 1588.Coverdale: Herbert 18; STC 2063. Morgan: Darlow & Moule 9581; STC 2347.

Lonicerum latinitate donata: adhibitis enarrationibus, e Graecis Scholijs, & doctissimis utriusque linguae autoribus desumptis: quarum suffragio Poeta, a paucis hactenus intellectus, nunc planior illustrior redditur.

      Basel, A. Cratander 1535.. 4°. (6) Bll., 458 Ss., (9) Bll. Mit wiederholter Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf Titel und letzten Bl. verso. Blindgepr. Kalbsleder d. Zt. (Rücken erneuert, 2 Ecken restauriert), zwei neue Bindebänder. Zweite lateinische Ausgabe Pindars (nach 1528), die erste mit Kommentar. Frühe Werkausgaben Pindars sind selten: Auf drei griechische (Aldus 1513, Kallierges 1515 und Cratander 1526) folgen die ersten lateinischen. Von Pindar (522 oder 518 - ca. 440 v. Chr.), aus der Nähe von Theben gebürtig, ist nur ein geringer Teil seines Werkes überliefert; im Wesentlichen handelt es sich dabei um Preislieder auf Sieger von Wettkämpfen in Olympia, Delphi, am Isthmos und in Nemea. In Auftrag gegeben wurden sie von Aristokraten der gesamten griechischsprachigen Welt, Sizilien eingeschlossen. In der Literatur Roms (Horaz) fand er ebenso seine Bewunderer wie in England (Milton), Frankreich (Boileau) und Deutschland, hier v.a. bei den Romanikern (A.v. Platen); zu dieser Zeit entstanden auch wichtige Übersetzungen ins Deutsche (Humboldt, Hölderlin). Johannes Lonicer (um 1497 - 1569) trat - wie Luther - früh dem Augustinerorden bei, studierte in Erfurt und Wittenberg und geriet, je mehr er sich von Luthers Lehre beeinflussen ließ, umso stärker in Konflikt mit der offiziellen Kirche. Nach Stationen in Esslingen, Freiburg und Straßburg, wo er für verschiedene Verlagshäuser als Korrektor arbeitete, erhielt er einen Lehrstuhl in Marburg, zunächst für Griechisch, dann auch in Theologie. Die Einbandprägung ist auf beiden Seiten gleich angelegt: in einem rautenförmiges Feldernetz finden sich verschiedene Einzelstempel: Blattwerk (Fächerblatt mit Bund), sich auf einen Stab stützender Wanderer und Lilie; die seitlichen Halbfelder am Rand sind mit einem quadratisch umrandeten Käfer-Stempel besetzt. V.a. der Wanderer- und der Käferstempel sind in der Literatur kaum zu finden. Der Einband könnte rheinisch-niederrheinischer Herkunft sein. Spiegel und Vorsätze aus Pergament. Titel mit größerem seitlichen Ausschnitt (recto geringe, verso minimale Textbetroffenheit), dieser hinterlegt, Rand- und Falzverstärkungen, ein Wurmloch ebenfalls hinterlegt. Außerdem mehrere handschr. Einträge auf Titel; zwei davon beziehen sich auf kirchliche Zensur: einmal darauf, dass der Autor verurteilt, ihm jedoch Rechtfertigung widerfahren sei, zum zweiten wird ein Pater Paulus Keuth genannt, der das Buch entsprechend dem Index der verbotenen Bücher korrigiert habe (man sieht, mit welcher Skepsis auch eine eigentlich unverdächtige Arbeit des Lutheranhängers Johannes Lonicer, von dem eine Reihe von Streitschriften auf dem Index landeten, in katholischen Leserkreisen betrachtet wurde). In einem dritten Eintrag (aus dem 17. Jahrhundert) wird der Konvent des Kölner Birgittenkloster als Besitzer genannt. Im Titel ist der Name des Übersetzers dünn unterstrichen und die Worte "& illustrior" wurden ausgestrichen. Vorderes Gelenk angerissen, letztes Blatt im Falz verstärkt. Beide Spiegel mit alten Bibliotheksvermerken. Durchgehend leicht gebräunt, verschiedentlich etwas wasserrandig; Rubrizierungen in Rot und Blau. S. 261 mit zwei ausgestrichenen Zeilen (von der Hand des im Titel genannten "Korrektors"?).

        Malleus Maleficarum Maleficas et earum haeresim ut phramea potentissima conterens

      Paris/Jehan Petit, 1535.. Ledereinband. Latin title: "Malleus Maleficarum Maleficas et earum haeresim ut phramea potentissima conterens", English title: "The Hammer of Witches which destroyeth witches and their heresy as with a two-edged sword", binder annotated 'Malleus Maleficarum 1535', title page with woodcut printers mark of Jehan Petit, Paris, 16th century,. Condition: Well worn, browning, some notations including page numbers, some worm holes particularly to back fly. Extremely rare edition of the highly sought after Malleus Maleficarum. Currently the only edition from the 16th century for sale. Do not miss this opportunity to own one of the most sought after books and the second most read book after the bible! About the malleus maleficarum: The Malleus Maleficarum[2] (commonly rendered into English as "Hammer of [the] Witches";[3] Der Hexenhammer in German) is a treatise on the prosecution of witches, written in 1486 by Heinrich Kramer, a German Catholic clergyman. The book was first published in Speyer, Germany, in 1487.[4] James Sprenger is also often attributed as an author, but some scholars now believe that he became associated with the Malleus Maleficarum largely as a result of Kramer's wish to lend his book as much official authority as possible.[5] The main purpose of the Malleus was to systematically refute arguments claiming that witchcraft does not exist, to discredit those who expressed skepticism about its reality, to claim that those who practised witchcraft were more often women than men, and to educatemagistrates on the procedures that could find them out and convict them.[6] Background[edit] Magic, sorcery and witchcraft had long been condemned by the Church, whose attitude towards witchcraft was elaborated on in the canon Episcopi written in about 900 AD. It stated that witchcraft and magic did not really exist, and that those who believed in such things "had been seduced by the Devil in dreams and visions into old pagan errors".[7] Until about 1400 it was rare for anyone to be accused of witchcraft, but heresies had become a major problem within the Church by the 13th century,[8] and by the 15th century belief in witches was widely accepted in European society. Those convicted of witchcraft typically suffered penalties no more harsh than public penances such as a day in the stocks,[9] but their persecution became more brutal following the publication of the Malleus Maleficarum, as witchcraft became increasingly accepted as a real and dangerous phenomenon.[10] In 1484 Heinrich Kramer had made one of the first attempts at prosecuting alleged witches in the Tyrol region. It was not a success: he was expelled from the city of Innsbruck and dismissed by the local bishop as a "senile old man". Kramer was opposed by the local clergy partly because of his eccentric behavior (as the Bishop of Innsbruck's verdict indicates), and partly because he didn't hold any official position as an Inquisitor despite his efforts to make himself into one. According to Diarmaid MacCulloch, writing the book was Kramer's act of self-justification and revenge.[9] Some scholars have suggested that following the failed efforts in Tyrol, Kramer and James Sprenger (also known as Jacob or Jakob Sprenger) requested and received a papal bullSummis desiderantes affectibus in 1484. It allegedly gave full papal approval for the Inquisition to prosecute what was deemed to be witchcraft in general and for Kramer and Sprenger specifically.[11] Malleus Maleficarum was written in 1486 and the papal bull was included as part of the preface.[11] Publication[edit] The Malleus Maleficarum was published by Kramer (Latinised as "Institoris")[12] and Sprenger in 1487. Scholars have debated how much Sprenger contributed to the work. Some say his role was minor,[13] and that the book was written almost entirely by Kramer, who used the name of Sprenger for its prestige only,[12] while others say there is little evidence for this claim.[14] The preface also includes an approbation from the University of Cologne's Faculty of Theology. The authenticity of the Cologne endorsement was first questioned by Joseph Hansen but has not been universally questioned; Christopher S. Mackay rejects Hansen's theory as a misunderstanding.[15] Nevertheless, it is well established by sources outside the "Malleus" that the university's theology faculty as a whole condemned the book for unethical procedures and for contradicting Catholic theology on a number of important points. Hence the Malleus' claims about an endorsement from the same faculty is at best a misleading approval granted by only a small percentage of the faculty, and at worst a complete forgery. Scholarly opinion is divided on the latter point, but there is general agreement that even if it were genuine it was misrepresented by Kramer, as was the copy of "Summis desiderantes" whose inclusion implies a Papal endorsement of the "Malleus" although "Summis desiderantes" had been issued before the "Malleus" was written.[16][17][18][19] The Malleus Maleficarum drew on earlier sources such as Johannes Nider's treatiseFormicarius, written 1435/37.[20] The book became the handbook for secular courts throughout Renaissance Europe, but was not used by the Inquisition, which even cautioned against relying on the work.[21] Between 1487 and 1520 the work was published thirteen times. It was again published between 1574 and 1669 a total of sixteen times. Regardless of the authenticity of the endorsements appearing at the beginning of the book, their presence contributed to the popularity of the work.

        C. PLINII SECUNDI HISTORIA MUNDI

      Basel, per Hieronymum Frobenium, Io. Hervagium, & Nicolaum Episcopium, 1535.. denuo emendata, non paucis locis ex diligenti ad pervetusta et optimae fidei exemplaria collatione nunc primu[m] animadversis castigatisq[ue], quemadmodum evidenter in Sigismundi Gelenij annotationibus operi adnexis apparet. Adiunctus est Index copiosissimus. Printer's names from colophon on page 671, Latin text, 1535, folio, approximately 370 x 245 mm, 14½ x 9¾ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, on verso page 671 and on verso of final leaf, with 37 large historiated initials and small decorated initials in the Table, pages: (36), 671, (181), 51 of these unnumbered pages contain Gelenius' annotations, followed by 130 pages of index, bound in full contemporary blind tooled pig-skin over wooden boards, with 2 brass clasps in working order, raised bands to spine with blind tooling in compartments, no lettering. Covers soiled and stained, 110 mm (4½ inch) cut to leather on upper cover, small loss of leather to lower corner on upper board, the other corners slightly worn, 4 wormholes to lower cover, 1 to upper cover, red stain filling lowest compartment of spine, upper hinge cracked at top 25 mm (1 inch), tiny crack to lower hinge at top, "Plinius" inked neatly across fore-edges, large handcoloured old armorial bookplate to front pastedown, with most of name and part of motto erased, inscription below bookplate erased and messy stain above it, old ink inscription erased in upper margin of title page, 4 small old paper repairs to reverse of title page, 3 at inner edge and 1 in blank area needed because of slight damage caused by horizontal crease which is repeated on A2, single small wormhole in inner margin from title to page 71, another to fore-edge of last 7 leaves of index, 2 very small closed margin edge tears, tiny closed tear to upper edge of 6 consecutive pages, a few brief early marginal notes, a little neat underlining, 1 pointing hand, contents otherwise very clean and bright. Pasted onto rear pastedown is a large sheet of paper with a drawing of a labyrinth on it in old ink and a reference in Latin mentioning the story of Theseus and Ariadne. Binding tight and sound. A good sound copy of this classic encyclopedic work. This is the first printing of the Naturalis Historia with annotations by the Bohemian humanist Gelenius. The text is preceded by a preface by Erasmus of Rotterdam, reprinted from his edition of 1525. Gaius Plinius Secundus, known as Pliny the Elder, was born in Como, Italy, in A.D. 23. By the time he died 56 years later, he had been a cavalry officer, an adviser to emperors and the author of at least 75 books, not to mention another 160 volumes of unpublished notebooks. He is remembered today for just one of those works, his 37-volume Naturalis Historia (also entitled Historia Mundi), in which he planned to "set forth in detail all the contents of the entire world." Pliny describes in detail the nature of the physical universe: geography, anthropology, zoology, botany, and the medicinal uses of plants and curatives derived from the animals, among a host of other topics including mathematics, astronomy, agriculture, history and the arts and letters. Although dubious as a work of science, Pliny's Historia Naturalis provides a unique glimpse into the world view of ancient Rome. It is a wonderful melange of the real and the fantastic, the never was and the never could be. He wrote of dog-headed people who communicated by barking, and people with no heads at all, their eyes in their shoulders. He wrote of snakes that launch themselves skyward to catch high-flying birds, and of the "basilisk serpent" of Africa, which kills bushes on contact, bursts rocks with its breath and is so venomous that when one was killed by a man on horseback, "the infection rising through the spear killed not only the rider but also the horse." The work became a model for all later encyclopedias in terms of the breadth of subject matter examined, the need to reference original authors, and a comprehensive index list of the contents. The work was dedicated to the emperor Titus, son of Pliny's close friend, the emperor Vespasian, in the first year of Titus' reign. It is the only work by Pliny to have survived, and the last that he published, lacking a final revision at his sudden and unexpected death. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

        De liberis recte instituendis, liber

      Argentinae [Strasbourg] Apud Ioannem Albertum, Anno M. D. XXXV. Mense Martio. 1535. Small 8vo, 147 x 90 mms., unpaginated, pp. [124], collating A-H8, with the recto the last leaf the engraved colophon, contemporary vellums (slightly soiled), with the autograph in ink "Walter Shelley/ M. Temple" on the front paste-down end-paper, and in pencil on the recto of the front free end-paper, "Cosmo Gordon/ [?Inschia] 1951." Sadoleto (1477 - 1547), the Italian humanist and churchman, and in 1533 published his De pueris recte instituendis, considering the education of boys in his capacity as Bishop of Carpentras, to be his most important duty. Sadoleto was also friendly with Erasmus (1466 - 1536) and corresponded with him on numerous matters, including education; his Imago pueri Jesu posita in ludo literario is included in the present volume. "Sadoleto, a cultured yet devout believer, strikes a note of deep seriousness, symptoms of the temper of the counter-reformation to which he so ardently devoted himself. Then he writes as one with a definite end in view : he has in mind the youth of the higher professional class his own and of landed families of modest estate. He knows what is wanted from experience of society in France as well as in Italy. Again, no other humanist writer upon education has as thoroughly entered into the true spirit of Plato. The end which Sadoleto puts forth is that of a liberal training not concerned with any of the possible technical superstructures which taste or need may suggest. The impression we gain from the De Liberis recte Instituendis is that its author knew well the class for which he was writing ; that he kept within the bounds of the attainable: that he set himself to exhibit in harmonious outlines an adaptation to the modern and the Catholic world all that was best in antique as the unwearied scholarship of the Italian Renaissance, which had already reached its zenith, had revealed it. Sadoleto himself was amongst the greater scholars of his time, surpassing most of them in insight into the significance of Greek thought. His treatise, it may be added, forms an instructive introduction to a study of the Jesuit Ratio" (W. H. Woodward: Studies in Education during the Age of the Renaissance, 1906). WorldCat locates a copy of this printing in Universiteitsbibliotheek Utrecht, Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire, and Bibliothèque interuniversitaire Sainte-Geneviève. No copies of this Strasbourg imprint found in Copac.

A modern interpretation of Galen, Avicenna and Hippocrates, Brancaleoni’s work promoted the healthful and hygienic effects of bathing a generation earlier than Falloppio, and well in advance of the 19th-century pan-European trend for spa cures associated with Vincenz Priessnitz (1799-1851) and Father Sebastian Kneipp.While the identity of the early annotator of this copy has not been confirmed, the primary hand appears identical to the notes appearing in another medical text handled by our firm: Ferdinando Balami’s translation of Galen’s De ossibus, also published in Rome by Blado in 1535, and bound in an analogous green vellum binding, which bears the ownership inscription of the physician Ottaviano Caligari. OCLC lists two copies of the 1535 edition: Harvard and the Wellcome (this edition not in the NUC).

        De Proprietatibus Rerum

      London: Thomas Berthelet, 1535. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Small folio [29 cm x 19.5 cm], (8), CCCLXXXVI (ie 388) ff. Bound in blindstamped contemporary English calf, sympathetically rebacked with original black and gilt title label laid on. Early MS title on fore-edge. Woodcut device on verso of last leaf and woodcut initials throughout. Scattered worming, touching one or two letters in the first 50 leaves, otherwise very clean and fresh. An unusually fine copy. Rare second and earliest acquirable English edition (first, 1495) of Bartholomaeus Anglicus' famed encyclopedia, the most comprehensive synthesis of information about the known world well into the 16th century, rarely found complete. Anglicus' work has long been recognised as a fundamental text in mediaeval studies: vastly popular in its time, it offers a key to the mindset of readers from 13th century English monks to early Renaissance writers and thinkers. Like the earlier work of Isidore, from which it is descended, the 19 books of Anglicus' encyclopedia have been likened to a proto-modern 'database' of knowledge. As Trevisa's preface explains, the work is founded on the basis of etymologies - the idea that the knowledge of the origins of a word can disclose the word's 'true sense'. In cataloguing and describing his own medieval world, Anglicus divided his work into 19 books, ranging from physiology (books IV & V) to domestic manners (VI), to astronomy (VIII), natural history (XII & XIII), and geography (XV). Thorndike is especially impressed with Anglicus' sources, noting both the wide variety of up-to-date authorities consulted and the author's own, often anecdotal contributions to his text. De proprietatibus rerum is thus no mere extension of Isidore's Etymologiae: the 13th century Englishman "goes beyond [Isidore's] brief statements; it seems clear that the scanty contents of the Etymologies are no longer deemed sufficient." (Thorndike, p. 407). Book XV of De proprietatibus rerum, entitled De regionibus, is significant in itself as an early geographical dictionary informed by modern and perhaps even first-hand experience (see below). As Patrick Gautier-Dalché has recently commented, Anglicus' De regionibus goes far beyond its promised aim of exploring only those countries mentioned in the Bible. Thorndike also emphasizes Anglicus' geographical modernity: in addition to the place names of antiquity, he notably includes "the feudal world of his own time" (p 424), while Pitts notes the work's "intentional avoidance of Christian moralization". Places as far afield as China and Scotland are included, with the 173 entries arranged alphabetically. Unlike most medieval travel literature which is patently fantastic and aimed at the armchair traveler, however, Anglicus' intent seems to have been to present useful geographical information as concisely and as practically as possible, for the benefit of his Continental audience. Thus Paris is described at length, while remote cities (Jerusalem, Constantinople) receive more cursory treatment: few readers would realistically need a practical guide to locales to which they were unlikely to travel. Another reason for this preferential treatment, however, may be that many of De regionibus' descriptions were based on the widely-traveled author's own experiences (Thorndike, p 424). "On the whole his account.is of considerable value for the political geography of Europe in the thirteenth century, both as a general survey showing what regions he deemed important enough to mention and what he thought might be omitted, and also often for particular details concerning particular places, while it is sometimes enlivened by the spice of local or racial prejudice" (p 425). Anglicus' attitude towards the Scots, for example, is particularly vehement: they love nothing more than to die in battle, frequently suffer from famine, are forced to eat mainly fish, and are ignorant of the art of making bread. .........................................................

        LA HISTORIA GENERAL DE LAS INDIAS

      Seville: Juan Cromberger, 1535.. 197 leaves as follow: title-leaf, folios 1-7, folios +1-3, folios 8-193. 6 leaves are in excellent facsimile on old paper (title; ff. 10, 178, 185, 192, 193), 2 leaves have extensive facsimile work (ff. +2 and 191), and one leaf has minor facsimile work (ff. 1). Three other leaves have marginal repairs with minor loss (ff. 27, 183, 190). None of the woodcuts of New World subjects are affected by these facsimiles or repairs. An expertly restored copy in old vellum, leather label. Despite the work detailed above, a clean, solid, substantially intact copy of a very rare book. This famous work is the most extensive book on the New World written up to the time of publication, and is one of the chief sources to this day for many of the facts relating to the early history of the Spanish conquest of the New World. Oviedo was a witness to that history from the beginning, having seen, as a young page at the Spanish court, the return of Columbus in 1493. In 1505 he went out to the Indies himself as an official, and subsequently served in a number of important administrative posts. Over the next three decades he kept extensive notes on the history of the Spanish in the New World and all he observed there, especially natural history and the Indians he encountered. He also interviewed all of the Spanish explorers to whom he had access. In 1526 he published a short work on the natural history of the Indies, followed nine years later by the present work. His industry provides an extraordinary description of the period, one that his high offices and education gave him a unique ability to record. Oviedo's work is illustrated with numerous woodcuts, which are the earliest extant reliable pictures of things in the New World. These include a number of botanical subjects including prickly pear, as well as artifacts including the hammock, and natives, the most famous of which depicts an Indian panning for gold. The first edition of Oviedo's book publishes the first nineteen parts of his history. The twentieth part appeared as a part of Ramusio's DELLE NAVIGATIONI ET VIAGGE in 1551, and the remaining thirty were not published until 1851. This first edition is one of the outstanding early books on the New World, a foundation work regarding the period of the initial Spanish conquest. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 535/12. HARRISSE BAV 207.

        LIBRO PRIMO DE LA CONQVISTA DEL PERV & PROUINCIA DEL CUZCO DE LE INDIE OCCIDENTALI

      [Colophon: Vinegia (i.e. Venice): Stampato per Stephano da Sabio, 1535].. [62] leaves. Small quarto. 19th-century pebbled pigskin, spine gilt. Boards and extremities lightly rubbed. Some minor soiling, a few leaves lightly toned. Two small tears, on titlepage and second leaf, neatly repaired. Very good. 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, Atahualpa, 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 was also present at Cajamarca and is said to have been the first Spaniard to lay hands on Atahualpa. 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 tittlepage and a xylographic printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. CHURCH 73. HARRISSE 200. SABIN 105721.

        C. PLINII SECUNDI HISTORIA MUNDI

      Basel, per Hieronymum Frobenium, Io. Hervagium, & Nicolaum Episcopium, 1535.. denuo emendata, non paucis locis ex diligenti ad pervetusta et optimae fidei exemplaria collatione nunc primu[m] animadversis castigatisq[ue], quemadmodum evidenter in Sigismundi Gelenij annotationibus operi adnexis apparet. Adiunctus est Index copiosissimus. Printer's names from colophon on page 671, Latin text, 1535, folio, 370 x 245 mm, 14½ x 9¾ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, on verso page 671 and on verso of final leaf, with 37 large historiated initials and small decorated initials in the Table, pages (36), 671, (181), 51 of these unnumbered pages contain Gelenius' annotations, followed by 130 pages of index, bound in full contemporary blind tooled pig-skin over wooden boards, with 2 brass clasps in working order, raised bands to spine with blind tooling in compartments, no lettering. Covers soiled and stained, 110 mm (4½ inch) cut to leather on upper cover, small loss of leather to lower corner on upper board, the other corners slightly worn, 4 wormholes to lower cover, 1 to upper cover, red stain filling lowest compartment of spine, upper hinge cracked at top 25 mm (1 inch", tiny crack to lower hinge at top, "Plinius" inked neatly across fore-edges, large handcoloured old armorial bookplate to front pastedown, with most of name and part of motto erased, inscription below bookplate erased and messy stain above it, old ink inscription erased in upper margin of title page, 4 small old paper repairs to reverse of title page, 3 at inner edge and 1 in blank area needed because of slight damage caused by horizontal crease which is repeated on A2, single small wormhole in inner margin from title to page 71, another to fore-edge of last 7 leaves of index, 2 very small closed margin edge tears, tiny closed tear to upper edge of 6 consecutive pages, a few brief early marginal notes, a little neat underlining, 1 pointing hand, contents otherwise very clean and bright. Pasted onto rear pastedown is a large sheet of paper with a drawing of a labyrinth on it in old ink and a reference to in Latin mentioning the story of Theseus and Ariadne. Binding tight and sound. A good sound copy of this classic encyclopedic work. This is the first printing of the Naturalis Historia with annotations by the Bohemian humanist Gelenius. The text is preceded by a preface by Erasmus of Rotterdam, reprinted from his edition of 1525. Gaius Plinius Secundus, known as Pliny the Elder, was born in Como, Italy, in A.D. 23. By the time he died 56 years later, he had been a cavalry officer, an adviser to emperors and the author of at least 75 books, not to mention another 160 volumes of unpublished notebooks. He is remembered today for just one of those works, his 37-volume Naturalis Historia (also entitled Historia Mundi), in which he planned to "set forth in detail all the contents of the entire world." Pliny describes in detail the nature of the physical universe: geography, anthropology, zoology, botany, and the medicinal uses of plants and curatives derived from the animals, among a host of other topics including mathematics, astronomy, agriculture, history and the arts and letters. Although dubious as a work of science, Pliny's Historia Naturalis provides a unique glimpse into the world view of ancient Rome. It is a wonderful melange of the real and the fantastic, the never was and the never could be. He wrote of dog-headed people who communicated by barking, and people with no heads at all, their eyes in their shoulders. He wrote of snakes that launch themselves skyward to catch high-flying birds, and of the "basilisk serpent" of Africa, which kills bushes on contact, bursts rocks with its breath and is so venomous that when one was killed by a man on horseback, "the infection rising through the spear killed not only the rider but also the horse." The work became a model for all later encyclopedias in terms of the breadth of subject matter examined, the need to reference original authors, and a comprehensive index list of the contents. The work was dedicated to the emperor Titus, son of Pliny's close friend, the emperor Vespasian, in the first year of Titus' reign. It is the only work by Pliny to have survived, and the last that he published, lacking a final revision at his sudden and unexpected death. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.
