        CASTIGATISSIMI ANNALI DELLA ECCELSA & ILLUSTRISSIMA REPUBLI DI GENOA DA FIDELI & APPROVATI SCRITTORI PER AGOSTINO GIUSTINIANO GENOESE VESCOVO DI NEBIO ACCURATAMENTE RACCOLTI Opera certamente molto laudevole, a studiosi assai comoda, & communemente a tutti utilissima...

      (per i tipi di Antonio Bellono), 1537. In-8 gr. (mm. 277x187), p. pelle bazana settecentesca, dorso a cordoni con ricca decorazione e tit. oro su tassello, 14 cc.nn., CCLXXXII cc.num., titolo in rosso e nero, grande vignetta xilografata al frontespizio con lo stemma della Repubblica e il motto "Aurea libertas vexillum Genue"; al 'verso' una bella composizione (pure xilografata) raffigura San Giorgio che uccide il drago. Il testo è ornato da fregi e grandi capilettera figurati a vignetta, inc. su legno. Al fine: "Con diligentia & opera del nobile Laurentio Lomellino Sorba stampati &c. per Antonio Bellono Taurinense, a dì xviii de Mazzo". Illustre studioso, umanista e geografo, il genovese "Agostino Giustiniani (1470-1536) maturò precocemente la sua vocazione religiosa e il 23 sett. 1514 fu nominato vescovo di Nebbio (nella Corsica settentrionale).. Dei sei libri che compongono i suoi "Castigatissimi annali..", il primo, che giunge fino al 1100, è interamente autonomo rispetto alla narrazione degli annalisti sincroni medievali. Le carte I-XXVII sono occupate da una "Descrittione della Lyguria" che fornisce una originale e articolata rappresentazione della realtà ligure del tempo, nelle sue componenti demografiche, economiche e urbanistiche. Per il primo, come per i successivi libri, il Giustiniani non mancò di utilizzare anche i documenti dell'Archivio del Comune, il che gli permise di narrare con sufficiente ricchezza le vicende genovesi per periodi non coperti dagli annalisti precedenti (l'Alto Medioevo, appunto, ma soprattutto gli anni di metà Quattrocento trattati nel libro V). Per gli anni 1514-28 gli "Annali" rappresentano la fonte primaria per la storia genovese. Fra i contributi più significativi si devono inoltre ricordare le notizie sulle figure culturali di spicco della città, specie per il XV e XVI secolo..". Così Dizionario Biograf. Italiani,LVII, pp. 301-05. Cfr. anche Choix de Olschki,IV,4620: "Ouvrage très rare et recherché, fameux surtout pour le passage qui se trouve au feuillet 249 recto sous l'année 1493: 'Christoforo colombo Genoese inuentore della nauigatione al mondo nouo.. Et questi ambassatori (del re di Spagna) fecero certissima fede e relatione della navigatione di Colombo, qual si era novamente da lui ritrovata, il qual Christoforo di proprio nome chiamato fu di parenti plebei, come che il padre fussi testore di pane di lana e lui fussi testore di seta' etc. en tout 20 lignes" - Coleti,I, p. 91: "Opera postuma, per lo che, come Apostolo Zeno nelle note al Fontanini asserisce, il Lomellino Sorba che ebbe la cura di assisterne l'edizione, vi fece notabili alterazioni".

      Nuremberg: [Johann Petreius], 1537. First edition, extremely rare, combining two major Arabic works on planetary astronomy: al-Battani's The Motions of the Stars, printed here for the first time, and al-Farghani's Elements of Astronomy, here in its second printed edition but the first with the additions and geometrical proofs of Regiomontanus. "The indebtedness of Copernicus to al-Battani is well known. He quotes him fairly often, especially -- as does Peurbach -- in the chapters dealing with the problems of solar motion and of precession. Much more frequent references to him are found in Tycho Brahe's writings and in G. B. Riccioli's New Almagest; in addition, Kepler and -- only in his earliest writings -- Galileo evidence their interest in al-Battani's observations" (DSB, under al-Battani). The extensive annotations to the Crawford copy of De revolutionibus also clearly show that al-Battani's observations were much studied by Erasmus Reinhold, Copernican advocate and author of the Prutenic tables (see Gingerich, Census, p. 273, who suggests that Reinhold used the 1537 Nuremberg edition of al-Battani). "In the spring of 1464 at the University of Padua, then under Venetian control, Regiomontanus lectured on the ninth-century Muslim scientist al-Farghani. Although the main body of these lectures has not survived, "Johannes Regiomontanus' Introductory Discourse on All the Mathematical Disciplines, Delivered at Padua When He was Publicly Expounding al-Farghani" was later published in Continentur in hoc libro Rudimenta astronomica Alfragani ..., whose first item was John of Seville's twelfth-century Latin translation of al-Farghani's Elements of Astronomy (Nuremberg, 1537). Also included in this volume was Plato of Tivoli's twelfth-century Latin version, "together with geometrical proofs and additions by Johannes Regiomontanus," of al-Battani's The Motions of the Stars. One such addition (to al-Battani's chapter 11, although the printed edition misplaced it in the middle of chapter 12) may have been the germ from which Regiomontanus subsequently developed the earliest statement of the cosine law for spherical triangles ... he was the first to formulate this fundamental proposition of spherical trigonometry" (DSB, under Regiomontanus). The volume begins with Regiomontanus' oration on al-Farghani, which "deserves to be called the first modern history of mathematics" (Goulding, pp. 8-9), and an introduction to Euclid, both published here for the first time. ABPC/RBH list only a copy sold by Sotheby's in 1934 and a fragment (al-Farghani only) offered by Goldschmidt in 1952. "Battani (850-929) was one of the most influential astronomers of the early Islamic period. He was particularly well known for the accuracy of his observations, which he carried out at Raqqa in northern Syria over a period of 40 years ... In Raqqa, Battani devoted considerable financial resources to establish a private observatory at which he regularly conducted observations during the period from 877 to 918. Among the instruments that he is known to have used are a gnomon, horizontal and vertical sundials, a triquetrum, parallactic rulers, an astrolabe, a new type of armillary sphere, and a mural quadrant with an alidade. For several of these instruments, Battani recommended sizes of more than a meter in order to increase the accuracy of the observations. In 901, Battani observed a solar and a lunar eclipse in Antioch. "The accuracy of Battani's observations of equinoxes and solstices, as judged from the one existing report and his determination of the lengths of the seasons, is not much inferior to that of Tycho Brahe 700 years later. This remarkable achievement must have been due to a careful construction and alignment of his large instruments, as well as to a clever method of combining multiple observations of the same type of phenomenon (which was certainly not simple averaging). The value obtained by Battani for the Ptolemaic solar eccentricity, expressed sexagesimally as 2;4,45 parts out of 60, is almost exact. In fact, it is clearly better than the values found by Nicolaus Copernicus, who was troubled by refraction because of his high geographical latitude, and Brahe, who incorporated the much too high Ptolemaic value for the solar parallax in the evaluation of his observations. "Battani also made accurate measurements of the obliquity of the ecliptic, which he found as 23° 35' (the actual value in the year 880 was 23° 35' 6"), and the geographical latitude of Raqqa (36° 1', modern value 35° 57'). Furthermore, he determined all planetary mean motions anew. He found the parameters of the lunar model to be in agreement with Ptolemy and the eccentricity of Venus the same as derived by the astronomers working under Ma'mun. Battani also confirmed the discovery of Ma'mun's astronomers that the solar apogee moves by 1' in 66 Julian years, and found the precession of the equinoxes to be equal to the motion of the solar apogee. He accurately measured the apparent diameters of the Sun and the Moon and investigated the variation in these diameters, concluding that annular solar eclipses are possible. In the 18th century, Battani's observations of eclipses were used by Richard Dunthorne to determine the secular acceleration of the motion of the Moon. "Battani's most important work was a zji, an astronomical handbook with tables in the tradition of Ptolemy's Almagest and Handy Tables, later called al-Zij al-Sabi ... The Sabi' Zij is the earliest extant zij written completely in the Ptolemaic tradition with hardly any Indian or Sasanian-Iranian influences. As with many Islamic zijes, its purpose was much more practical than theoretical. Although the planetary models and the determination of the solar parameters are explained in some detail, ... most of the text in the Zij consists of instructions for carrying out practical calculations by means of the tables, which constitute a third of the book ... Although Battani copied some of the planetary tables directly from the Handy Tables, he also computed many tables anew ... The Sabi' Ztj enjoyed a high reputation in the Islamic world and was very influential in medieval and Renaissance Europe. Biruni wrote a treatise entitled Jala' al-adhhan fi zij al-Battani (Elucidation of genius in al-Battani's Zij), which is unfortunately lost. Later zijes such as those of Kushyar ibn Labban, Nasawi, and Tabari were based on Battani's mean motion parameters. In Spain, the Sabi' Zij exerted a large influence on the earliest astronomical developments and left many traces in the Toledan Tables. Two Latin translations of the canons of the Zij were prepared in the 12th century. The one by Robert of Chester has not survived, but the translation by Plato of Tivoli, made in Barcelona, was printed in Nuremberg in 1537 (together with Farghani's introduction to Ptolemaic astronomy) and again in Bologna in 1645 under the title Mahometis Albatenii de scientia stellarum liber, cum aliquot additionibus Ioannis Regiomontani ex Bibliotheca Vaticana transcriptus" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers). "The Arabs were, according to Carra de Vaux, unquestionably the inventors of plane and spherical trigonometry, which did not, strictly speaking, exist among the Greeks ... With the Arabs, the trigonometrical functions of sine, tangent, cosine and cotangent became explicit. They adopted for 'sine' the name jayb which signifies an opening, bay, curve of a garment, especially the opening of an angle. The Latin term 'sinus' is a mere translation of the Arabic jayb. It appears in the twelfth century in the translation of the De motu stellarum of al-Battani. The definition of the cotangent expressed as a function of the sine and of the cosine appears there for the first time, and in ch. III trigonometry begins to assume the appearance of a distinct and independent science. In spherical trigonometry also al-Battani presented an important formula (uniting the three sides and one angle of a spherical triangle), which has no equivalent in Ptolemy:                                      cos a = cos b cos c - sin b sin c cos A" (Holt et al, p. 714). Al-Farghani (cs. 800-870), an Arab or Persian Sunni Muslim, was one of the most famous astronomers of the ninth century. He was one of a group of astronomers who worked at Baghdad under the patronage of al-Ma'mun. His textbook Kit b f Jaw mi Ilm al-Nuj m, or Elements of astronomy on the celestial motions, written about 833, was a non-mathematical summary of Ptolemy's Almagest taking into account the findings and observational data of earlier Islamic astronomers. "The influence of the Elements on mediaeval Europe is clearly attested by the existence of numerous Latin manuscripts in European libraries. References to it in mediaeval writers are many, and there is no doubt that it was generally responsible for spreading knowledge of Ptolemaic astronomy, at least until this role was taken over by Sacrobosco's Sphere. But even then, the Elements of al-Farghani continued to be used, and Sacrobosco's Sphere was clearly indebted to it. It was from the Elements that Dante derived the astronomical knowledge displayed in the Vita nuova and in the Convivio" (DSB). The Elements has thirty chapters, of which the first describes the Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Russian and Arab calendars and their differences. The remainder of the book covers the principal topics of the Almagest: the inclination of the ecliptic (Al-Farghani finds 23°33' for 829 AD at Baghdad compared with Ptolemy's 23°51'); the circumference and the diameter of the earth as measured by al-Mamun's astronomers (approximately 20,400 miles and 6,500 miles); the ascension of the signs of the zodiac in the direct and oblique spheres and equal and unequal hours; description of the planets, their motions and distances from the earth, movements of the sun, moon and fixed stars, retrograde motions of the wandering planets; magnitudes, eccentricities and epicycles, lunar mansions, comparative sizes of the planets and the earth; parallax and eclipses. It "thus gives a comprehensive account of the elements of Ptolemaic astronomy that is entirely descriptive and non-mathematical. These features, together with the admirably clear and well-organized manner of presentation, must have been responsible for the popularity the book enjoyed" (DSB) The Elements was written after the death of the Caliph al-Mamun in 833 but before 857. Two Latin translations were made in the twelfth century, one by John of Spain (John of Seville) in 1135 and the other by Gerard of Cremona in 1175. Printed editions of the first translation appeared in 1493, 1537, 1546, 1556, 1564 and 1618 (Gerard's translation was not published until 1910). Jacob Anatoli made a Hebrew translation of the book that served as the basis for a third Latin version published in 1590, and Jacob Golius published a new Latin text together with the Arabic original in 1669. "In 1464, the great German mathematician Johannes Regiomontanus delivered a set of astronomical lectures to the faculty of the university of Padua, based on al-Farghani's elementary handbook of astronomy in its medieval Latin translation. He began his course with a historical survey, quite brief (11 pages printed, or about 4000 words), but covering the history of the discipline from antiquity to his own day. This small tract deserves to be called the first modern history of mathematics ... Regiomontanus, a highly original and creative mathematician who had dedicated himself to a program of translation and publication, intended to convince his audience not just of the antiquity of the sciences, but also of their current vitality. He began his history promising not just to reveal the origins of the arts and their passage from nation to nation, but to tell "how they were at also translated from various foreign tongues into Latin, which of our ancestors were famed in these disciplines, and to which modern recognition should be granted" ([alpha]4r)" (Goulding, pp. 8-9). "He repeats the notion, common in his time, that geometry had been discovered by the Egyptians as a consequence of the division of the land after the inundation by the Nile; Euclid had collected the geometrical knowledge and written it down in 13 books; Hypsicles had added two more books ... In his Padua lecture Regiomontanus particularly praises the writings of Archimedes; he also mentions the new translation of about 1450 by Jacobus Cremonensis. He says that Apollonius' Conica, when once translated into Latin, would excite the admiration of all mathematicians. As authors on spherics he mentions Theodosius and Menelaus. Under arithmetic - algebra is silently included - Jordanus Nemorarius is particularly praised. Of this author Regiomontanus cites here the Arithmetica in 10 books and the De numeris datis. Since, as he says, the 13 books of Diophantus have not yet been translated from Greek into Latin, the flowering of the higher arithmetic, the ars rei et census, still lies hidden. The subject is known by the Arabic name "algebra." We know from Regiomontanus' correspondence that one year earlier, in 1463, he had discovered in Venice a Greek manuscript containing the first six books of Diophantus. Before this discovery the work was apparently unknown in the West. Regiomontanus recognized immediately the importance of what he had found. In his Padua lecture he also mentioned Bianchini as learned in this art. Other important treatises on arithmetic are Johannes de Muris' Quadripartitum numerorum, the Algorithmus demonstratus, the Arithmetica of Boethius and the practical arithmetic of the monk Barlaam in Greek" (Ragep et al, pp. 92-3). Regiomontanus possessed manuscripts of at least two Latin versions of Euclid's Elements: the Campanus redaction made shortly before 1260, and an earlier version compiled by Robert of Chester about 1140. The latter was copied by Regiomontanus himself from a manuscript bought by Cardinal Bessarion in Vienna in 1461 (Bessarion's manuscript is now in the Marciana, but Regiomontanus' copy is lost). This manuscript is of particular importance because it contains two versions of Euclid - version II, which is ascribed to "Adelhardus", i.e., Adelhard of Bath, and version III, ascribed to Boethius. The introduction to version III was published in the present volume, where it is erroneously ascribed to Regiomontanus himself. The same introduction is present in Regiomontanus' own autograph copy of Euclid (now in Nuremberg), which he compiled using the two manuscripts in his possession. Bound at the end of the volume is a copy of the second edition of the following work of Agostino Ricci (fl. 16th century), first published in 1513: De motu octavae sphaerae, opus mathematica, atque philosophia plenum. Ubi tam antiquorum, quam iuniorum errores, luce clarius demonstrantur in quo & quamplurima Platonicorum, & antiquae magiae (quam Cabalam Hebraei dicunt) dogmata videre licet intellectu suavissima. Eiusdem de astronomiae autoribus epistola [edited by Oronce Fine]. Paris: Simon de Colines, 1521. "Agostino Ricci, a converted Jew, had written a book titled De motu octavae sphaerae (1513), which dealt with "the movements of the eighth sphere in a philosophical manner, together with the teachings of the Platonists and ancient magic (which the Hebrews call Kabbalah)." Ricci, with whom Agrippa corresponded and from whom he sought advice on the publication of his Dialogus de homine, was the astrologer of the Marquis of Monferrato and seems to have been Agrippa's intermediary in winning the favour of the ruler. Agostino Ricci had been a pupil of the famous Abraham Zacuto at Salamanca and continued to study under him at Carthage. Many years later he served as physician to Pope Paul III" (Goodrick-Clarke, The Western Esoteric Traditions, p. 58). Ricci's Almanach Perpetuum was used for all navigational tables (including those of Vasco da Gama) from its publication in 1496 until Nuñez's tables of 1537.

        De moribus veterum haereticorum et quibuscum illi hac aetatem affinitatem habeant

      Manoscritto cartaceo. Mm. 142 x 95., cc. (1) xxxxiii + 1 c.b. Testo in rosso e nero. Legatura antica in piena pelle; dorso a 4 nervi con fregi in oro agli scomparti. Tagli spruzzati. Trascurabile e marginale alone. Ben conservato. Georg Witzel (Vacha an der Werra, Assia, 1501 - Magonza, 1573), autorevole teologo tedesco, nel 1524 si convertì al luteranesimo e nel 1531, dopo l'incarcerazione nel castello di Belzig, ritornò in seno alla Chiesa cattolica dedicandosi ad attività controversistica (Pro defensione bonorum operum adversus novos evangelistas, 1532; Apologia, 1533 e appunto De moribus veterum haereticorum, Lipsia, 1537). Dal 1538 si spostò continuamente, in Germania e in Boemia, cercando di propagandare un suo progetto di riunione ecclesiastica d'ispirazione erasmiana. Anche a questo scopo ricevette una pensione annua da Massimiliano II. Questo straordinario manoscritto di storia delle eresie riporta come luogo di realizzazione Eisleben, città dove l'A. risiedeva nel 1537 prima di recarsi a Dresda nel 1538. Witzel ebbe grossi problemi nel reperire un editore non convertito al luteranesimo, quindi nel 1537 l'opera iniziò a circolare clandestinamente manoscritta..

Giovanni Francesco Ripa (Riva) di San Nazzaro (1480 ca. - 1535) , originario di Pavia, fu il successore di Giasone del Maino proprio nello studio lombardo. Dopo parecchi anni si recò ad Avignone per ricoprire la cattedra di diritto canonico, tornato a Pavia morì nel 1534. La sua interpretazione divenne celebre poiché caratterizzata da autorevolezza, stile arguto e straordinaria capacità dialettica. Ripa si cimentò con uguali esiti sia nel diritto civile che in quello canonico tanto da apparire ancora profondamente legato alla tradizione di diritto comune fondata appunto sul concetto di utraque lex. Il nostro esemplare raccoglie i commentari all'intero Corpus iuris civilis e i prezioso Repertorium. Magnifica e rara edizione lionese di Vincenzo Portonari, celebre stampatore trinese. Cfr.

        Das Büch Schimpff unnd Ernst genant, welches durchlaufft der welt hendel, mit viel schönen und kurtzweyligen Exempeln und gleichnussen, Parabolen und hystorien...

      [Augsburg: H.Steyner], 1537. Fourth Augsburg edition, attractively illustrated with woodcuts by Hans Weiditz, Jörg Breu, Hans Schäufelein, and other leading contemporary German artists, of this popular work which "has exercised a very considerable influence on both the general education as well as the poetry of the 16th century" (ADB XXV, 262). "Born in Pfeddersheim, Alsace, Pauli abandoned Judaism in his youth and entered the Franciscan order. From 1479 he taught in various church institutions and became a popular preacher...[He] is remembered for one major work, Schimpf und Ernst (first published in 1522), a collection of 693 jests and moral anecdotes drawn from ancient and medieval sources and from oral tradition. Some 60 editions of this work were printed before 1700. Although he mocked at human failings, Pauli invariably gave an ethical point to his graphic stories, which partly inspired the Elizabethan era's Hundred Merry Tales, a source much read and exploited by William Shakespeare." (Jewish Virtual Library) "This a genuine "folk book", written in an easy and plain style, filled with humour and pointed satire, intended to instruct while it amused. "He did not desire," as Georg Rollenhagen says in his preface to "Froschmäusler", "to make people laugh without teaching them something; his book was like the old legends and sagas, full of fabulous happenings and incidents, but written so that in them, as in a comedy, there are combined with poetry and imagination the plain, unvarnished, bitter truths of life, worded so as to tell serious things in a jocular manner, with a laugh and a smile."

        This Boke Sheweth the Maner of Measurynge All Maner of Lande, as Well of Woodlande, as of Lande in the Felde and Comptynge the True Nombre of Acres of the Same. [edited by Thomas Paynell.]

      Southwark: James Nicolson, 1537 FIRST EDITION of "the first English textbook on geometrical land-measurement and surveying" (Buisseret, Monarchs, Ministers, and Maps). The book focused on practical methods calculating everything from the amount of stone needed to pave a chamber floor to the size of a pasture or field" marking "the beginning of a new interest in measuring not just the assets of the land, but the land itself" (D. K. Smith, Cartographic Imagination in Early Modern England). In this landmark in the history of surveying, Richard Benese described for the first time in English how to calculate the area of a field or an entire estate. Noting that sellers tended to exaggerate the size of a property whereas buyers were inclined to underestimate it, he advised the surveyor to approach the task in a careful and methodical manner: "When ye shall measure a piece of any land ye shall go about the boundes of it once or twice, and [then] consider well by viewing it whether ye may measure it in one parcel wholly altogether or else in two or many parcels." Measuring it in "many parcels," he explained, was necessary when the field was an uneven, irregular shape; by dividing it up into smaller, regular shapes like squares and oblongs and triangles it became easy to calculate accurately the total area. The distances were to be carefully measured with a rod or pole, precisely 16 1/2 feet long, or a cord. And finally, the surveyor was to describe the area in words, and to draw a plat showing its shape and extent. "Like the maps, this interest in exact measurement was also new. Until then, what mattered was how much land would yield, not its size. When William the Conqueror instituted the great survey of England in 1086, known as the Domesday Book, his commissioners noted the dimensions of estates in units like virgates and hides, which varied according to the richness of the soil: a virgate was enough land for a single person to live on, a hide enough to support a family, and consequently the size shrank when measuring fertile land, and expanded in poor, upland territory. Other Domesday units like the acre and the carrucate were equally flexible, but so long as land was held in exchange for services, the number of people it could feed and so make available to render those services was more important than its exact area. Accurate measurement became important in 1538 because beginning in that year a gigantic swath of England-almost half a million acres-was suddenly put on sale for cash." (New York Times 1 Dec 2002). Benese's Maner of Measurynge All Maner of Lande marks an epoch, the widespread idea of land as private property. Under the feudal system, land was generally owned by the king. Everyone else, from duke and baron to vassal and villein, was a tenant exchanging goods and services for land rights. "During the sixteenth century a large part of the property of Europe was suddenly wrested from one privileged group and handed over to a new one. The Church was expropriated; the lands of feudal magnates, who opposed both capitalism and the new religion, and the ancient demesne lands of the Crown, were transferred by forced sale to the new ruling class" (Schlatter, Private Property, the History of an Idea). Suddenly land became widely available to capitalists. This sea change in the world's economic order required that real estate dealings be put on a rational economic basis, and Benese's book marks that new era. "If there is a single date when the idea of land as private property can be said to have taken hold, it is 1538. In that year a tiny volume was published with a long title that began, This boke sheweth the maner of measurynge of all maner of lande. In it, the author, Sir Richard Benese, described for the first time in English how to calculate the area of a field or an entire estate . . . PLEASE INQUIRE FOR MORE DETAILS.

        Castigatissimi annali con la loro copiosa tavola della Eccelsa & Illustrissima Republi. di Genoa, da fideli & approvati Scrittori, per Reverendo Monsignore Agostino Giustiniano.

      Per Antonio Bellono Taurinense, Genoa 1537 - A rare and famous work on the Italian Republic and maritime city-state of the Genoa, birthplace of Christopher Columbus. "The only edition listed in Graesse, Brunet, and Sabin. Folio 249 is devoted to a biography of Columbus, in which he states, among other things 'Christophoro di proprio nome chiamato su di parenti plebei, come che il padre fussi testore di pane di lana & lui fussi textore di veta, etc.' These facts about the humble origin and youth of Columbus were not liked by the brand-new aristocrat, the son of Columbus, who in his book on the life of his father emphatically contradicts 'the twelve lies' of Giustiniano. Ferdinand Columbus tells us also 'that, considering the many mistakes and falsehoods found in his Annals of Genoa and his Psalter (Giustiniano's Polyglott Psalter of 1516), the Senate of Genoa has laid a penalty upon any person that shall read or keep them; and has caused them to be carefully sought out in all places they have been sent to, that they may by public decree be utterly destroyed and utterly extinguished'." (Parke Bernet). Title-page printed in red and black; attractive wood-cut of St. George and the Dragon on verso of title-page. Large 8vo (29.5 x 21cm), [14], 282 leaves. A bit of browning to a few leaves, otherwise clean fresh copy. Bound in 19th century quarter calf over boards, fore-edge yellow. [Adams G-751; Sabin 27518; Sander 3191.]

Cui supra priorem editionem accessit rerum ac uerborum toto opere memorabilium instructissimo index.

In-12°, pp. (88), 387, (1 bianca), mancano le ultime 2 carte bianche, capilettera in xilografia, legatura in piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso e al taglio inferiore. Ottimo e fresco esemplare. Prima edizione datata e prima edizione fuori dall'Italia. L'opera fù messa all'indice nel 1558 a causa dell'empietà delle dottrine e dell'aspra critica del clero, tanto vero che l'opera ebbe larga diffusione in ambienti protestanti e fu molto apprezzata in Inghilterra, mentre in Italia fu letto solo da pochi liberi pensatori come Giordano Bruno. "L'opera è divisa in dodici canti e illustra i vari segni dello zodiaco celeste, in modo da rappresentare simbolicamente la vita e i più importanti problemi che vi si riconnettono. L'opera si presenta come un poema scientifico, che vuole illustrare le più ampie conquiste del pensiero in evidente dipendenza dal grande modello del poema della Natura di Lucrezio. L'autore mostra la sua simpatia per verso Lutero e a Erasmo nella satira del clero e della rampogna contro le superstizioni e le mollezze del tempo. Si coglie nell'opera il più vivo spirito del Rinascimento, conscio di sè e delle conquiste umane, con l'esaltazione della divina realtà spirituale che trova nell'uomo il suo maggiore interprete. Tipicamente umanstica, questa teoria della fede nella natura tende a sfuggire all'assolutismo dei dogmi anche con la teoria delle due verità...". Dizionario letterario delle opere e dei personaggi, Bompiani, vol. VII, pag. 933, I primi filosofi che presero seriamente in considerazione questo poema furono G.C. Scaligero nelle sue Poetices (1561) e Giordano Bruno nel libro VIII del suo Immenso (1591), dove egli discute le idee cosmologiche del Palingenio, mentre alcuni passaggi di quest'opera risultano essere delle vere e proprie parafrasi di parti dello Zodiacus Vitae.

        De moribus veterum haereticorum et quibuscum illi hac aetatem affinitatem habeant.[Eisleben], , 1537.

      [Eisleben], 1537 - Manoscritto cartaceo. Mm. 142 x 95., cc. (1) xxxxiii + 1 c.b. Testo in rosso e nero. Legatura antica in piena pelle; dorso a 4 nervi con fregi in oro agli scomparti. Tagli spruzzati. Trascurabile e marginale alone. Ben conservato. Georg Witzel (Vacha an der Werra, Assia, 1501 - Magonza, 1573), autorevole teologo tedesco, nel 1524 si convertì al luteranesimo e nel 1531, dopo l'incarcerazione nel castello di Belzig, ritornò in seno alla Chiesa cattolica dedicandosi ad attività controversistica (Pro defensione bonorum operum adversus novos evangelistas, 1532; Apologia, 1533 e appunto De moribus veterum haereticorum, Lipsia, 1537). Dal 1538 si spostò continuamente, in Germania e in Boemia, cercando di propagandare un suo progetto di riunione ecclesiastica d'ispirazione erasmiana. Anche a questo scopo ricevette una pensione annua da Massimiliano II. Questo straordinario manoscritto di storia delle eresie riporta come luogo di realizzazione Eisleben, città dove l'A. risiedeva nel 1537 prima di recarsi a Dresda nel 1538. Witzel ebbe grossi problemi nel reperire un editore non convertito al luteranesimo, quindi nel 1537 l'opera iniziò a circolare clandestinamente manoscritta. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

On the title-page device of Bartolomeo Zanetti, on l. CXII full-page woodcut depicting farm implements and agricultural tools, and with two diagrams in the text. Headpiece and initial on black ground on l. (2)r, headpiece, initials and titles printed in red on l. 1, in Byzantine style (all previously used by the Venetian printers Nikolaos Vlastos and Zacharias Kallierges, 1499-1500). Ownership's inscription on the title-page 'Gerardi Cerfolii'. A few contemporary marginal annotations in Greek. Some very light foxing and browning on the first and last leaves. A very good, crispy copy.EDITIO PRINCEPS of Hesiodus's complete works, containing also in first edition the Scholia by the grammarian Ioannes Tzetze (written around 1135-1140) and the Allegoriae in Theogoniam by Ioannes Galenos Diakonos (9th-10th cent.).The volume also includes the commentaries to the Opera et dies by Proklos, Ioannes Protospatarius, and Manuel Moschopoulos (12th-13th cent.). The text was edited by the physician Vittore Trincavelli, who dedicated the edition to Pietro Vettori (cf. M. Sicherl, Die griechischen Erstausgaben des Vettore Trincavelli, Paderborn, 1993, pp. 68-73).Trincavelli, born in Venice into a family coming originally from Tuscany, studied medicine and philosophy at Padua and Bologna. In 1551 he was appointed professor of medicine in Padua. As a physician, he also distinguished himself on the field during an epidemic which struck the island of Murano. As a Greek scholar, he collaborated with Bartolomeo Zanetti editing the text of at least nine Greek editiones principes.The present edition was considered as the most correct for a long time and was taken as a model for many subsequent editions (cf. Dibdin, Introduction to the Knowledge of Rare and Valuable Editions of the Greek and Latin Classics, London, 1927, II, p. 31).The Works and Days was first printed in 1480 in Milan by Bonus Accursius together with Theocritus' works. The Theogony and the Schiled of Heracles first appeared in the Aldine Theocritus of 1495/96.For Tzetze's Scholia and Diakonos' Allegoriae Trincavelli used manily a manuscript preserved in the Library of San Marco in Venice (Marc. gr. 464), copied by Demetrios Triklinios. For the commentaries by Protospatharios and Moschopoulos he employed a codex written by Georgios Tribizias (Marc. gr. 480), while the Scholia to Theogony are based on a later manuscript once belonging to the Dominican monastery of St. John and Paul (Marc. Gr. IX.6).Edit 16, CNCE23056; Adams, H-470; R. Mortimer, Italian 16th Century Books in the Harvard College Library, Cambridge MA, 1974, no. 233; M.

        Opera. Edited by Desiderius Erasmus and with Scholia by Erasmus & Beatus Rhenanus

      Woodcut printer's device on title & repeated on verso of final leaf. Small folio (319 x 208 mm.), cont. blind-stamped south German pigskin over wooden boards, orig. two catches & clasps. Basel: Johannes Hervagius, March 1537. Admired by Erasmus as a pagan moralist, Seneca (ca. 4 B.C.-65 A.D.) exerted a lasting influence on moral philosophy and rhetoric. He served as tutor to Nero until the Emperor's deeds forced Seneca to withdraw into retirement and, ultimately, commit suicide, an episode poignantly related by Tacitus (Annales XV, 62-64). Seneca's popularity endured unabated throughout the Middle Ages into the 15th and 16th centuries. Erasmus (ca. 1466-1536) produced the first critical edition of importance in 1515 at Basel, and he revised this in 1529, of which the present edition is a reprint. Vecellio Fore-edge Painting: Two full-length figures of a robed older Seneca with his former student, a young Nero, are painted on the fore-edge. The author's name is lettered vertically along the whole fore-edge, and horizontally below the lower clasp. Bottom and top edges are marbled. The painted decoration is the work of Cesare Vecellio (1521-1601), a cousin and pupil of Titian, in whose studio Vecellio worked until Titian's death. Among Vecellio's major paintings is the altarpiece at Belluno Cathedral. In addition to the painted fore-edges executed for the Pillones, Vecellio also painted a room in the Palazzo Pillone with the Four Seasons and the Rape of the Sabines. In his famous book on costume and manners, De gli habiti antichi et moderni (Venice: 1590), Vecellio mentions the library and other collections of the Pillone family as well as their generous hospitality. For his imagery, Vecellio took each book's author or content, so there are a series of author portraits, as here, or scenes, maps and views. 172 volumes were decorated in this way, 154 with fore-edges painted by Vecellio and 21 with original drawings on their vellum covers by him and other artists. Provenance: 1. Bonaccorso Grino (d. 1553) binding; kinsman by marriage to: 2. Odorico Pillone (1503-1593), Belluno; fore-edges. 3. Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), Armitage Bridge, Yorkshire; bookplate; sold by his heirs in 1957 to: 4. Pierre Berès (1913-2008), Paris. The Pillone Library has long been celebrated. Noted already in the 16th century as a library of "molti e diversi libri," it is celebrated among bibliophiles today for the remarkable painted decoration of its fore-edges and as a rare survival up to the modern day of a Renaissance library. The Pillone family, originally of Val Cadore, was prominent in the civic history of Belluno. Their library at Villa Casteldardo outside Belluno was primarily formed by the father and son, Antonio (1464-1533), and Odorico (1503-94), the former a soldier and diplomat, the latter a learned jurist. In the 1580s Odorico Pillone (or possibly his son Giorgio) commissioned Vecellio to decorate the fore-edges of a substantial portion of the best books in the library with paintings related to the contents. The 172 volumes decorated by Vecellio have had a remarkably stable existence over the next four centuries, which accounts in large measure for their almost uniformly excellent state of preservation. They remained together with other family collections until 1874 when the library was sold to the Venetian antiquarian Paolo Maresio Bazolle. The decorated volumes were then bought en bloc by the Yorkshire baronet Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), and remained in his family until they were acquired and finally dispersed by Pierre Berès in 1957. Thanks to their unusual decoration and to the fact that the library remained intact until the 1950s, all of the Pillone books have been preserved in their original bindings. Binding: Contemporary south German, possibly Munich, pigskin over inner bevelled wooden boards, panelled sides tooled in blind with rolls and tools (Hobson pl. 4b, perhaps Augsburg?), two fore-edge clasps with brass catchplate on upper cover. This is one of the 59 books that Hobson calls "an unexpected element in the collection" (p. 34). Most of these were printed in Germany, some in France, only one in Italy. All are in German blind-stamped calf or pigskin bindings as the present copy. Odorico Pillone probably acquired these books, by gift, purchase or bequest, from his relation Giovanni Grino, who had inherited the collection from his father Bonaccorso Grino (Hobson, p. 36). In fine and fresh condition. ❧ Berès, Bibliothèque Pillone, 122.

        Anatomiae, hoc est, corporis humani dissectionis pars prior .

      Marburg: Eucharius Cervicornus, 1537. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to [19.5 x 15.5 cm]. (36) ff., (1) folding table, with numerous anatomical woodcuts, woodcut title, printer's device, and initials. [With:] MONDINUS / DRYANDER, Johannes. Anatomia Mundini, ad vetustissimorum, erundemque aliquot manu scriptorium, codicum fidem collate, iustoq(ue) fuo ordini restitute. Marpurgi, In officina Christiani Egenolphi, 1541 (colophon). (4) ff., 67 ff., with numerous anatomical woodcuts, printer's device, and initials. Bound in contemporary limp vellum, minor restoration to one corner, ink splotch on front cover. First title: contemporary ownership inscription on title (Joseph Longis), minor marginal dampstaining, border of f. c1 slightly cropped, repaired minor tears where folding table connects to binding. Second title: minor loss upper blank corner of tp., printers crease to f. 5, small tears to ff. 35, 38 and 49, small blank corner loss f. 50, printer's crease in text of p. 51. Overall excellent. A very attractive ensemble: fine copies of two rare illustrated works of pre-Vesalian anatomy, here preserved together in their contemporary vellum binding as issued: the first expanded edition of Johannes Dryander's Anatomiae... pars prior (1537) followed by his new illustrated edition (1541) of the Anatomia of Mondino de Liuzzi (c. 1270-1326), known as the "restorer of anatomy" for his innovative dissection practice. A contemporary and rival of Andreas Vesalius (1514-64), Dryander (1500-60) was "one of the first authors to make drawings of his own dissections;" and his Anatomiae... pars prior of 1537 offered here is considered "the first significant work devoted to the anatomy of the brain" (Printing and the Brain of Man, p. 24). In fact, it is one of the first printed monographs devoted to any single part of the human body. Issued separately 4 years apart but found together here, these two works are among the best illustrated anatomies to predate the Fabrica (1543) of Vesalius (Lind, p. 297). Modern scholars have noted that several illustrations in Vesalius' Tabulae anatomica sex of 1538 shows signs of having been influenced by some of the images in Dryander's Anatomiae... pars prior. The 1537 Anatomiae... pars prior is an amplification of Dryander's 1536 Anatomia capitis humani (Marburg, Cervicornus), with a longer introduction, more detailed depictions of the head and brain, and new woodcuts of the thorax, heart, and lungs, which increase the number of its illustrations to twenty-three. The volume was apparently conceived as the first part of a (never finished) complete anatomy of the human body. The text of the treatise records Dryander's lecture given at Marburg on October 25, 1526, in which he praises Philip I, Landgrave of Hesse (1504-67), the work's dedicatee, for allowing the public dissection of the corpses of criminals and for advancing state support for the study of anatomy, ideas which were still progressive in the early sixteenth-century. Dryander, who led the first public dissections ever performed in Germany (Duffy, p. 87), emphasizes the importance of the study of anatomy for the practice of surgery, the study of pathology for better determining cause of death, and the better understanding of the nature of disease.....

        De incertitudine & vanitate scientiarum declamatio inuectiua, denuo ab autore recognita & marginalibus annotationibus aucta

      S.E, 1537. In-8°, cc. 192, bel ritratto in xilografia dell'autore al frontespizio, legatura recente in cartonatura rustica, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Carte di guardia nuove. Il primo fascicolo (composto da quattro carte) proviene da un altro esemplare, i fogli sono più corti al margine bianco inferiore. Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa di Nettesheim (Colonia, 15 settembre 1486 - Grenoble, 18 febbraio 1535) è stato un alchimista, astrologo, esoterista e filosofo tedesco. Divenne medico personale di Luisa di Savoia nonché storiografo di Carlo V; ritenuto principe dei maghi neri e degli stregoni, riuscì tuttavia a sfuggire all'Inquisizione. Il suo pensiero risiede essenzialmente nella sua opera più importante, il De occulta philosophia, scritta nell'arco di circa venti anni, dal 1510 al 1530: la filosofia occulta è la magia, considerata «la vera scienza, la filosofia più elevata e perfetta, in una parola la perfezione e il compimento di tutte le scienze naturali». L'opera è un attacco contro tutte le scienze, o quelle che tali erano reputate, e contro il clero: secondo Agrippa si fanno monaci i ribaldi per sfuggire alla giustizia, gli avventurieri che hanno perduto il loro patrimonio, i poltroni per guadagnarsi da vivere senza essere costretti a lavorare: «securi da tutti i pericoli del mondo et dalle molestie civili, mangiano il pane ozioso et furfantuoso in cambio di quello che si acquista colle fatiche, dormendo agiatamente e senza pensieri; et credono che questa sia povertà evangelica, vivere in ozio et furfanteria delle fatiche altrui» Il De incertitudine contiene anche un attacco contro le «scienze segrete» - alchimia, astrologia, geomanzia, magia - e rappresenterebbe perciò una ritrattazione del De occulta philosophia, del quale era già stato pubblicato l'anno precedente il primo libro, e in generale degli interessi che pure egli aveva così a lungo coltivati, In realtà egli attaccava i cattivi cultori che degradavano le discipline ermetiche - come si è visto nella sua lettera al Tritemio - e insieme, probabilmente, fingeva di essere estraneo a interessi pericolosi per la sua reputazione: infatti, nella realtà, continuò a occuparsi di «scienze occulte», fino a pubblicare l'edizione definitiva del De occulta philosophia nel luglio del 1533 a Colonia. Il De incertitudine fu condannato al rogo dai teologi della Sorbona il 2 marzo 1531 e l'Università di Lovanio considerò empie 43 proposizioni. Oltre a censurare le sue insinuazioni contro i costumi ecclesiastici e a considerare sospetta la sua definizione di Lutero come invictus haereticus e l'attribuzione al diavolo dell'invenzione del cappuccio dei frati, furono considerate senz'altro eretiche la sua condanna della venerazione delle immagini e delle cerimonie religiose, la svalutazione dei profeti e degli evangelisti, il suo scetticismo sull'utilità della teologia che pretenderebbe di definire Dio e, in generale, sull'utilizzo delle scienze per giustificare la religione.

        Opera per doctissimum Philosophum Ioannem Baptistam Memum patritium Venetum, mathematicharumque artium in urbe Veneta lectorum publicum. De Graeco in Latinum Traducta & Noviter impressa.

      Venice: Bernardinus Bindonus, 1537. 'One of the greatest scientific books of antiquity' (Stillwell). Very rare editio princeps of Apollonius' Conics, the basic treatise on the subject, "which recognized and named the ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola" (Horblit 4, on the later edition of 1566). This is one of the three greatest mathematical treatises of antiquity, alongside those of Euclid and Archimedes. This first edition is very rare, preceding by 29 years the Commandino edition of the same four books canonized by Horblit (and taken over by Dibner and Norman), and this first edition is known to have been used by Tartaglia, Benedetti and, however critically, Maurolico (see Rose). Books I-IV were the only ones to survive in the original Greek; Borelli discovered Arabic versions of books V-VII and published them, in Latin translation, in 1661. "Apollonius (ca. 245-190 BC) was the last of the great Greek mathematicians, whose treatise on conic sections represents the final flowering of Greek mathematics" (Hutchinson's DSB, p. 16). Apollonius synthesized the work of his predecessors as well as contributing new methods and techniques of his own. "For a modern reader, the Conics is among the most difficult mathematical works of antiquity. Both form and content are far from tractable. The author's rigorous rhetorical exposition is wearing for those used to modern symbolism... Apollonius has, in a way, suffered from his own success: his treatise became canonical and eliminated its predecessors, so that we cannot judge by direct comparison its superiority to them in mathematical rigor, consistency and generality. But the work amply repays closer study; and the attention paid to it by some of the most eminent mathematicians of the seventeenth century (one need only mention Fermat, Newton and Halley) reinforces the verdict of Apollonius' contemporaries, who, according to Geminus, in admiration for his Conics gave him the title of The Great Geometer... "The first real impulse towards advances in mathematics given by the study of the works of Apollonius occurred in Europe in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries... It is hard to underestimate the effect of Apollonius on the brilliant French mathematicians of the seventeenth century, Descartes, Mersenne, Fermat, and even Desargues and Pascal, despite their very different approach. Newton's notorious predilection for the study of conics, using Apollonian methods, was not a chance personal taste... It was not until Poncelet's work in the early nineteenth century... revived the study of projective geometry that the relevance of much of Apollonius' work to some basic modern theory was realized... "Hipparchus and Ptolemy absorbed his work and improved on it. The result, the Ptolemaic system, is one of the most impressive monuments of ancient science (and certainly the longest-lived), and Apollonius' work contributed some of its essential parts" (DSB I 97-99). The text was passed down by Eutocius, a Byzantine mathematician of the Justinian period, and translated from the Greek by Giovanni Battista Memo (1466-1536), Public Professor of Mathematics at Venice. A patrician who held a number of important government posts, he was instrumental in establishing the mathematical chair of which he became the first occupant in 1530. This is his principal work, published just a year after his death by his nephew. The Greek manuscript he employed is unknown, though Rose suggests it might have been the one which once belonged to the family of the present work's dedicatee, Cardinal Marino Grimani. Rose groups Memo with the successors of Valla, Zamberti and Gaurico, who applied the new philology to Greek scientific treatises, especially mathematics. Only five copies located in America (Harvard, Louisville, MIT, UNC, Yale). Brunet I.347; Essling II.667-8; Riccardi I 247 ('raro libro'); Sander 480; Stillwell II.139; not in Adams; Heath, T.R., Apollonius of Perga: Treatise on Conic Sections (Oxford, 1896); Horblit 4, Dibner 101 and Norman 57 for the Commandino edition of 1566; P.L.

Basel: J. Herwagen, 1537. First Basel edition; this is the first complete assemblage of the Euclidean texts, with printings of both Campanus of Navara's and Bartolomeo Zamberti's versions. It also contains the new Preface by Philipp Melanchthon which in many copies, according to Thomas-Stanford, was removed by the censor. This Herwagen edition contains all the major Euclidean texts: the Elements, Phaenomena, Catoptrica, Data, and the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso, which appears here for the first time. The version of Books I-XV of the Elements by Campanus of Navara, (d. 1296) was the one generally used in the later Middle Ages and was employed in the first edition of 1482. It was frequently reprinted (at least 14 times in the 15th and 16th centuries). Our edition also contains the version of Bartolomeo Zamberti (b. ca. 1473). "Zamberti was most conscious of the advantages he believed to accrue from his working from a Greek text. This enabled him, he claimed, to add things hitherto missing and properly to arrange and prove again much found in the version of Campanus."-D.S.B., IV, p. 448. Also included is the first printing of the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso. "No work by Euclid on mechanics is extant in Greek, nor is he credited with any mechanical works by ancient writers. According to Arabic sources, however, he wrote a Book on the Heavy and the Light, and when Hervagius was about to publish his 1537 edition there was brought to him a mutilated fragment, De levi et ponderoso, which he included as one of Euclid's works?It is the most precise exposition that we possess of the Aristotelian dynamics of freely moving bodies."-D.S.B., IV, p. 431.

Der im italienischen Sassoferrato geborene Verfasser (um 1313-1357) war einer der bedeutendsten Rechtslehrer des Mittelalters. Er gehörte zur Richtung der Kommentatoren. Charakteristisch für sein Ansehen bei den späteren Juristen ist der Satz nemo bonus iurista nisi bartolista (niemand ist ein guter Jurist, wenn er nicht Bartolist [Anhänger des Bartolus] ist). Bartolus lehrte in Pisa und Perugia. Es war nicht etwas ganz Anderes, was er unternahm, in Vergleichung mit seinen Vorgängern, aber er that es besser, als die Meisten unter ihnen (Savigny, Geschichte des römischen Rechts im Mittelalter VI, 157). Dass man Bartolus zeitweise als den größten Juristen schlechthin ansah, zeigt sich auch darin, dass im italienischen Theater der Name Bartolo für die Figur des Juristen (Figur des Dottore in der Commedia dell'Arte) üblich wurde. - Einband etw. beschabt u. fleckig.

        Opuscula complura de temporum ratione diligenter castigata. Cologne, Johannes Prael for Peter Quentel, May 1537.

      1537. Folio (215 x 310 mm). (14), 18, (6), CXXVI, (4) ff. With 35 woodcuts in the text, initials, and printer's device on recto of final leaf. Contemp. vellum. First edition of Beda's collected writings on historical and astronomical chronology. The section "On the Reckoning of Time" (De temporum ratione) includes an introduction to the traditional ancient and medieval view of the cosmos, including an explanation of how the spherical earth influenced the changing length of daylight, of how the seasonal motion of the sun and moon influenced the changing appearance of the new moon at evening twilight, and a quantitative relation between the changes of the tides at a given place and the daily motion of the moon. "Ce volume contient les principaux traités de l'auteur sur le calendrier" (Houzeau/L.). The woodcut world map on d1, evidently redrawn from those of Petrus de Alliaco and Ambrosius Macrobius (Shirley 12 & 13), shows the four continents of the old world surrounded by water, the southern hemisphere labeled as "nobis incognita frigida". - Very slightly browned; title page shows insignificant fingerstaining; otherwise an excellent copy with a very few contemporary marginalia.
