        Hauss apoteck, zu jeden leibs gebresten fur den gemainen mann und das arm landvolck.

      Woodcut title by Hans Weiditz depicts a man raking the earth and woman gathering herbs. Among the other woodcuts are illustrations of a herb garden, an apothecary shop, and a banqueting scene. Finely bound in blind - stamped full calf of the period. Second edition (first 1537) of Brunschwig's popular pharmacology and distillation manual, based on his Thesaurus pauperum, which formed Book Five of his Liber de arte distillandi, also called Grosses destillierbuch. Brunschwig's advice on herbal remedies became the authority throughout the sixteenth century. Prescriptions are offered for marital compatibility, good memory, happiness, drunkenness and fright. In addition, he describes a number of liqueurs and elixirs; the most curious is a section on intoxication with a large woodcut depicting a wild party. Brunschwig (ca. 1450 - ca. 1512) was a surgeon primarily concerned with anatomy, treatment of wounds, and pharmacy. The present edition is quite rare with only two copies located.

        Libro primo (secondo, terzo, quarto, quinto, estraordinario) d?architettura... -

      In - 4. Legatura del ?600 in pergamena, titolo ms. sul dorso. Con 6 frontespizi architettonici, diagrammi e numerose illustrazioni silografiche n.t., moltissime a piena pagina, incise da Giovanni Chrieger (Krugher) e derivate dalle edizioni originali in - folio. 219, (1 bianco), 52 ff.; antica firma di appartenenza sulla prima carta e nel margine inferiore del frontespizio; alcune carte leggermente ingiallite e lievi aloni marginali su poche carte. Prima edizione in quarto della celebre opera dell?architetto bolognese. I vari libri furono originariamente pubblicati in ordine irregolare e in città diverse (Venezia, Parigi, Francoforte) tra il 1537 e il 1575 (settimo libro). Fu il primo trattato di architettura il cui scopo fosse più pratico che teorico, ed il primo a codificare i cinque ordini. Si distingue per il tono pragmatico, per l'intento didattico e per la grande importanza data alle immagini, risultando un passaggio importante ed anticipatore non solo nella storia della trattatistica di architettura, ma anche nella storia della stampa, in generale. Ebbe un notevole successo, testimoniato dalle numerose ristampe e traduzioni in varie lingue (francese, tedesco, inglese, fiammingo). Cicognara 668. Berlin Kat. 2570. Fowler 327. First quarto edition of Serlio?s influential and finely illustrated work. "The first genuine advance in architectural illustration seems to have been made by Serlio, and his Libro Terzo set the type of architectural illustration in Italy for the rest of the century" (Fowler 308). With 6 architectural titles, various diagrams and numerous text woodcuts, many full page. Early owner?s names on first page and lower margin of title; light marginal damp stain on a few leaves and some yellowing here and there, but generally a good copy bound in 17th century vellum (slightly soiled), ms. title on spine.

Non si conosce il nome del Maestro che incise i legni, dopo averne ideato i disegni, ma egli dovette essere dotato di immaginazione fervida e di rara abilità. Benché inspirati ai legni creati in Germania per il Virgilio di Strasburgo: Joh. Grueniger, 1502, sono strettamente originali, trattati in modo vivace, notevolissimi per la storia del costume, in quanto illustrano gli episodi dell?opera virgiliana come fossero contemporanei: vedute di città, figure di navi, armi, ecc. dimostrano, per molti aspetti, la vita comune del primo cinquecento...»

        Homeri Poetarum Omnium Principus ILIAS, Andrea Diuno Iustiopolitao interprette, ad verbu translata. Heroditi Halicar nassei libellus, Homeri vita fidelissime continens, Conrado Heresbachio interprete. Cum Indici copiosissimo

      Apud d. Iacob a' Burgofrancho (Giacomo Pocatela), Venetiis, 1537, No Binding, Book Condition: Poor, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionIn three parts (complete). In Latin throughout. The three parts are preceded by a life of Homer by Conrad Heresbach. This is also the first published translation by Andrea Diuno. First part is the Iliad; the second is the Odyssey together with the "Trachomyomachia, id est, Ranatrum & Murium pugna" (the Battle between the mice and the frogs), together with the Hymns of the Gods (Hymni Deorum). The book is in need of professional rebinding and repair. Page 33 of the Iliad to page 73 of the Iliad and the last chapter of the Iliad (XXIII) to page 18 of the Odyssey are loose but complete and entire. Published by Giacomo Pocatela (also known as Iacob or Jacob a Burgofrancho as a business name). Pocatela, on moving to Venice, dropped his initial publishing preference for medical and scientific books for vernacular and classical texts (of which this is one). Pocatelo was once of the first printers to form a network. He had his own printing press and printed for other publishers other than his own brand. This book was published in 1537 (M. D. XXXVII) the year before his death. The front cover of the book is missing. The paper cover remains (albeit in a wretched state) on the spine and the back. The title page is decorated with woodcuts in which is incorporated the publisher's device framed by cupids. The back leaf has the publisher's colophon [Venetiis, Apud d. Iacob A Burgofrancho. M. D. XXXVII Mense Martio (1537 in the month of March)]. The verso side has the publisher's device / brand: the initials IADPBF (or IADPBF) imposed on a cross above a star within a shield, embraced by two muse, above which is the legend 'Sustine et Abstine' and below in Greek, 'Anexoy kai Aiiexoy'. This colophon and device also appear at the end of the 'Iliad'. The paper trims are much damaged at the bottom right corner. However, this damage does not interfere in anyway with the facility of use or the text-bodies. The pages have publisher marks and initials as was usual. There are storage, user marks and stains to many pages. Some pages also have annotations by previous owners (of some age). The year the book was published was also the year the Venetian State imposed very heavy fines for the use of poor paper quality (such was the importance of printing to Venice at the time). Consequently, the paper here is robust, flexible, healthy, sure. Despite the irascibility and insecurity of the binding the book is secure and resolute. The spine has a label affixed with the title inscribed. The ink of the printing is clear, unfaded, strong and assured. The printing is in cursive characters. The thread of the binding is intact and stoic. The book, despite its damage, is an exciting book to hold, to look at, to read, and whose pages when turned would bring shivers of delight to any bibliophile. fk Quantity Available: 1.

[12], 316, [4, blank]; 152, [4, blank]; 248; 238, [2, blank]; 246 pp. 1 vols. Folio. Contemporary vellum. Faint dampstaining to lower corner, diminishing throughout; occasional underlining and marginalia. Overall, an impressive, fine copy, remarkably clean and entirely complete, with all blanks. Institutional bookplate with presentation leaf tipped to the front free endpaper. Rare New Testament Commentary, in the Thick of the Reformation Of Franciscan monastic background, Pellicanus (1478-1556) an was an early follower of Luther, and heavily influenced by Erasmus of Rotterdam. Having learned Hebrew from Johann Reuchlin, he was the first Christian to publish a Hebrew grammar (in 1501), and taught Sebastian Münster, one of the greatest Christian Hebraists of the sixteenth century. In 1526 Pellicanus was appointed professor of Greek and Hebrew at Zürich, at the invitation of Zwingli. During the years 1532 through 1539, Pellicanus used his vast knowledge of Hebrew and Greek to issue his magnum opus, a commentary on the entire Bible, of which this volume on the Four Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles forms the sixth and penultimate part. It is quite rare in institutions; OCLC finds only one copy in the US (UVa).

        Sphera Volgare Novamente Tradotta con Molte Notande Additioni de Geometria, Cosmographia, Arte Navicatoria, et Stereometria, Proportioni, et Quantita Delli Elementi, Distanze

      1537. SACROBOSCO, Joannes. Sphera Volgare Novamente Tradotta con Molte Notande Additioni de Geometria, Cosmographia, Arte Navicatoria, et Stereometria, Proportioni, et Quantita Delli Elementi, Distanze grandeze, et movimenti di tutti li corpi celesti, cose certamente rade et maravigliose / autore M. Mauro Fiorentino Phonasco et Philopanareto. Translated with additions by Fra. Mauro di Firenze. [116] unnumbered pages. Illustrated with 8 full-page woodcuts, 35 half and quarter page woodcuts and dozens of smaller woodcut figures and diagrams throughout. 8vo., 213 x 138 mm, bound in nineteenth-century Italian vellum, brown leather title-label on spine. [Venetia: Bartholomeo Zanetti, 1537]. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of the Fra. Mauro di Firenze translation and one of the finest illustrated editions of Sacrobosco; all of these woodcuts appearing in print for the first time. Sacrobosco's Sphaera (editio princeps 1472) was the first printed astronomical book, and a fundamental text of medieval and post-medieval astronomy. It is a synthesis of Ptolemy and his Arabic commentators, presenting an elegant, accessible cosmology, and for this reason was adopted as the most authoritative astronomical textbook of its time. Fra. Mauro (1493-1556), mathematician, philosopher, theologian and musician, contributed considerably to the present edition; he supplied whole new sections on cosmography, navigation, solutions for tracking celestial figures, inventions and surveying. Preceding Sphera, Mauro also provided a useful index of small woodcut diagrams with definitions that are used throughout the text. The larger woodcuts, including globes and many celestial diagrams, are interspersed throughout the text which was set in Zanetti's italic typeface. Of particular note are the attractive woodcut preliminaries created for this specific edition. The frontispiece depicts the coat-of-arms of Charles V placed within a heraldic border. The title page is presented within a border containing signs of the zodiac, with Mauro's device of a bull on a shield at the bottom. On the verso of the title is a woodcut showing ships sailing under the sun, moon and stars surrounded by a border of constellations, astronomical and mathematical instruments, and musical books. Fra. Mauro is depicted at lower left in the act of writing, using a globe naming America as a writing surface (another of the in-text globes also names America). A large coat of arms that appears on the verso O4 is that of the dedicatee, Spanish mathematician Juan Ortega de Carrion. The present copy has the small woodcut on the final leaf, most likely intended to be cutout and included as part of a volvelle; this woodcut is absent from most surviving copies. Complete copies are rare in commerce, ABPC finds the last complete copy selling in 1996. Spine label a bit worn, some inconsequential light staining, overall a fine copy. Mortimer, Italian 452. Riccardi II, 138. Sander II, 4441. Adams H738.

        Officia

      1537. CICERO, Marcus Tullius. Officia. [8], XCI ff. Collation: [*]8 A-O6 P8 (lacking blank leaf P8). Illustrated with a large woodcut on title of Caesar enthroned and surrounded by eight counsellors, with Cicero shown writing in the background (repeated on G2 verso), large woodcut portrait of Johann von Freiherr Schwarzenberg by Hans Weiditz after Albrecht Dürer on verso of title, the head within a circle surrounded by sixteen coats-of-arms, and 101 woodcut illustrations in the text by Hans Weiditz and Hans Burgkmair. Decorative woodcut tailpieces, decorative and historiated woodcut initials. Folio, 298 x 200 mm, bound in contemporary German blind-tooled calf, upper cover bearing armorial device of the Benedictine Abbey of Lambach (Upper Austria), two catches on upper cover, one clasp lacking. Augsburg: Heinrich Steiner, 1537.|~||~||~||~| |~| A German Renaissance woodcut book of supreme elegance. Third edition of the first German translation of De officiis (first published by Heinrich Steiner 16 February 1531), containing 103 woodcuts, including one of the earliest illustrations of a Conjurer. The German Cicero is considered one of the masterpieces of sixteenth-century woodcut art. According to Dodgson, there are "one hundred cuts by Hans Weiditz, in addition to borders and initials. Thirty-three of these belong to [Steiner's] Petrarch set, while the remaining sixty-seven (from sixty-four blocks, three of which are used twice) were designed for the Cicero. One cut (fol. 78) is by Hans Burgkmair; two (50, 71 vo.) are anonymous" (Dodgson II, p. 143). Of remarkable interest is the profusion of woodcuts depicting daily life in early sixteenth-century Germany. The subjects include a conjurer performing sleight-of-hand tricks at a table; a calculating board; breaking on the wheel; an astrolabe and hornbooks; a dancing bear; a pendulum clock; a painting studio; beehives; a hand press; a child's walker, or perambulator; phlebotomy; a surgical amputation; a spider's web; card playing; a pilgrim; a notary's office; draper's and armourer's shops; 'Poverty,' 'Disease,' 'Sensuality' and 'Death' dragging a knight down from a ladder reaching to heaven, etc. There is much in these extraordinary woodcuts that offer particular interest for Renaissance historians; the myriad details of contemporary life, costume and interior architectural settings are often exceptional. Sympathetically rebacked; unobtrusive marginal wormholes. Overall, an excellent copy. Of this edition only two copies are recorded in institutional collections worldwide: Wellcome Institute (London) and Niedersachsische Staats- und Univ. Bibliothek. PROVENANCE: Benedictine Abbey of Lambach (Upper Austria) with ex-libris stamps and armorial device on upper cover. Fairfax Murray, German, 118 (the 1531 edition). STC German, p. 209. Worstbrock 141. Dodgson II, 143 (12). Graesse II, 180. Cf. Rosenwald, 659.

      Woodcut printer's device on title & another on verso of last leaf. Many woodcut diagrams throughout and numerous fine & large woodcut initials. 4 p.l., 587, [1] pp. Folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over beveled wooden boards (minor worming at beginning, touching some letters), orig. clasps (one defective) and catches, 19th-cent. morocco lettering pieces on spine. 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. "Applies geometric methods of proof to theorems relative to freely falling bodies. Possibly a fragment of the original text. Authenticity questioned, but inconclusively. A translation presumably based upon an Arabic version."-Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing 1450-1550, 750. A fine copy from the Oettingen-Wallerstein library with their stamp on title-page. Modern bookplates of H. Staigmüller and David L. DiLaura. ❧ Thomas-Stanford 9. .

        Dialogus D. Ioannis Chrysostomi de Episcopatu & sacerdotio, Germano Brixio Antissiodorensi interprete

      Marburg, apud Eucharium Cervicornum, 1537. Small 8vo. 207,(1) p. 19th century full calf. 16.5 cm (Ref: VD16 J461; not in Ebert; not in Brunet) (Details: Printer's device on the title; woodcut coat of arms of Hessen on the verso of the title and on the verso of the last leaf; 19th century blind ruled binding) (Condition: Name cut from the blank upper margin of the title, and replaced by a strip of paper; some old ink underlinings and annotations; hole in the outer margin of the last leaf repaired with paper, not affecting text or engraving) (Note: This dialogue is one of the most read and most printed works of Chrysostomus. It was written 10 years after his ordination to bishop in 373. The partner in this dialogue is Chrysostomus' friend Basilius Magnus. The discussion is about the episcopate and priesthood. The Latin translation is by the French humanist Germanus Brixius (Germain de Brie), 1490-1538, pupil of the Greek scholar J. Lascaris, and later secretary to the bishop of Albi. He was also secretary of Queen Anne, second wife of Henry VIII. He is best known for the literary argument he had with Thomas More. They exchanged quarrelsome epigrams. The quarrel was ended by Erasmus, friend of both humanists. The printer Eucharius Hirtzhorn (Cervicornus) worked in Cologne since 1517 and in Marburg from 1535 until 1538. He printed scholarly editions of Greek and Latin classics. He is well known for the beauty and the clarity of his types and the quality of his paper. His printer's device shows 3 lilies rising from a thorn-bush, above the lilies a motto: sicut lilium inter spinas. (See for Hirtzhorn: Rudolf Schmidt: Deutsche Buchhändler. Deutsche Buchdrucker, 1905)) (Collation: A - N-8) (Photographs on request)

Fine apart from light soiling.</p><p>From ecclesiastical lawyer John Rokeby, who acted as one of Henry VIII&#39;s counsel in his divorce from Katharine of Aragon and later served as a member of the Council of the North, a regional administrative body originally established by Richard III and later reinstated by Henry VIII in 1530 as a means of exerting control over England&#39;s pro-Catholic northern counties. His correspondent was most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall, who served as president of the Council in 1530 and 1537; Tunstall is best known today as the author of De arte supputandi libri quattuor (1522), the first book published in England devoted exclusively to mathematics.</p><p> In his letter Rokeby asks Tunstall for a "contribution to enable me to go through with my presant Undertaking . . .

        De Monarchia / Gallorum Campi aurei : ac / triplici imperio, videlicet Romano, / Gallico, Germanico : una cum gestis heroum ac / omnium Imperatorum. / Authore Symphoriano Campegio aurato equite.

      Lyon, Melchior et Gaspard Trechsel 1537 - in-4, [21] ff. n. ch., un feuillet vierge, avec une grande vignette de libraire au titre et quelques armes dans le texte, vélin ivoire souple, tranches mouchetées de rouge (reliure du XVIIe). Exemplaire rogné court en marge inférieure, si bien que les signatures ont en général disparu. Edition originale de toute rareté de l'un des derniers ouvrages de Symphorien Champier, bien complet de ses trois parties, qui ont souvent été séparées (malgré ce qu'en dit Baudrier). Le médecin Symphorien Champier (1472-1539) est l'une des figures les plus originales du XVIe siècle lyonnais : médecin du duc Antoine de Lorraine dès 1506, il suivit ce prince dans ses différentes campagnes italiennes, combattit même personnellement à Marignan, où il fut armé chevalier, épousa une parente de Bayard. Il revint à Lyon en 1516 exercer la médecine et cultiver les lettres, puis, après son élection à l'échevinat (1520), prit figure parmi les hommes les plus illustres de la cité d'entre Saône et Rhône. Mais, lors de l'émeute frumentaire de la Rubeine en 1529, il vit sa demeure pillée, et se retira alors à Nancy. Il revint encore à Lyon en 1531 pour exercer une nouvelle magistrature. Ses ouvrages ont toujours été très recherchés, et aucun n'est désormais courant : ici, à cette synthèse de l'histoire française, telle que l'imaginait le jeune XVIe siècle, encore d'après les imaginations médiévales, s'ajoute un très intéressant tableau de la ville de Lyon. Baudrier XII, 247-48. Cioranescu, XVI, 6191-94. Reliées à la suite les deux autres parties de ce recueil composite, qui se trouvent souvent séparées, avec une interversion (la troisième précède la deuxième) : I. Galliae Celti- / cae, ac antiquitatis / Lugdunensis civitatis, quae / caput est Celtarum, campus. Lyon, Melchior et Gaspard Trechsel, 1537, [18] ff. n. ch., avec les armes de Lyon au titre. - II. De Monarchia / ac triplici imperio, videli- / cet, Romano, Gallico, et Germa- / nico campus, imperatorum / gesta continens. Lyon, Melchior et Gaspard Trechsel, 1537, [30] ff. n. ch., avec les armes de France au titre. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Dialogus D. Ioannis Chrysostomi de Episcopatu & sacerdotio, Germano Brixio Antissiodorensi interprete.

Small 8vo. 207,(1) p. 19th century full calf. 16.5 cm (Ref: VD16 J461; not in Ebert; not in Brunet) (Details: Printer's device on the title; woodcut coat of arms of Hessen on the verso of the title and on the verso of the last leaf; 19th century blind ruled binding) (Condition: Name cut from the blank upper margin of the title, and replaced by a strip of paper; some old ink underlinings and annotations; hole in the outer margin of the last leaf repaired with paper, not affecting text or engraving) (Note: This dialogue is one of the most read and most printed works of Chrysostomus. It was written 10 years after his ordination to bishop in 373. The partner in this dialogue is Chrysostomus' friend Basilius Magnus. The discussion is about the episcopate and priesthood. The Latin translation is by the French humanist Germanus Brixius (Germain de Brie), 1490-1538, pupil of the Greek scholar J. Lascaris, and later secretary to the bishop of Albi. He was also secretary of Queen Anne, second wife of Henry VIII. He is best known for the literary argument he had with Thomas More. They exchanged quarrelsome epigrams. The quarrel was ended by Erasmus, friend of both humanists. The printer Eucharius Hirtzhorn (Cervicornus) worked in Cologne since 1517 and in Marburg from 1535 until 1538. He printed scholarly editions of Greek and Latin classics. He is well known for the beauty and the clarity of his types and the quality of his paper. His printer's device shows 3 lilies rising from a thorn-bush, above the lilies a motto: sicut lilium inter spinas. (See for Hirtzhorn: Rudolf Schmidt: Deutsche Buchhändler. Deutsche Buchdrucker, 1905)) (Collation: A - N-8) (Photographs on request).

Abrahamus Ecchellensis... latinos reddidit. Io Alfonsus Borellus... curam in Geometricis versioni contulit, & notas uberiores in universum opus adiecit...Florence: Giuseppe Cocchini, 1661.

      First edition, large-paper copy in contemporary morocco. Editio princeps of books V-VII of the Conics, the most original parts of Apollonius' treatise on conic sections. Books I-IV were translated and published in 1537, and at the time it was believed that the remaining books were lost. "In the first half of the seventeenth century the Medici family acquired an Arabic manuscript containing Books V-VII of Apollonius's Conics, which had been lost up to that time. In 1658, with the help of the Maronite scholar Abraham Ecchellensis, Giovanni Borelli prepared an edited Latin translation of the manuscript, which was published three years later (the offered work). This was a valuable addition to the mathematical knowledge of the time, for whereas Books I-IV of the Conics dealt with information already known to Apollonius's predecessors, Books V-VII were largely original. Book V discusses normals to conics and contains Apollonius's proof for the construction of the evolute curve; Book VI treats congruent and similar conics and segments of conics; Book VII is concerned with propositions about inequalities between various functions of conjugate diameters" (Norman). <br/><br/> "The fifth book reveals better than any other the giant intellect of its author. Difficult questions of maxima and minima, of which few examples are found in earlier works, are here treated most exhaustively. The subject investigated is to find the longest and shortest lines that can be drawn from a given point to a conic. Here are also found the germs of the subject of evolutes and centres of osculation" (Cajori, A History of Mathematics). <br/><br/> The work also contains the first printing of the Assumptorum liber, attributed to Archimedes. <br/><br/> &#10087;Norman 58, Honeyman 119, De Vitry 29..

        Historia persecutionum quas in Aphrica olim circa D. Augustini tempora, Christiani perpessi sub Genserycho & Hunerycho Vandalorum regibus...

      Cologne : Eucharius [Cervicornus] August 1537 . Second Edition Small 8vo, A-I8, title within an architectural woodcut border, large initial "Q" at beginning of text, printer's device on verso of last leaf, titlepage a little frayed touching the border at fore-edge, A3 skewed in binding and consequently cropped at fore-edge with loss of some letters, some browning, recently re-cased in limp vellum from an old manuscript. Although rare, this is not the first edition as is often claimed. Adams records an edition [Paris Johann Petit. c.1510] in the University Library and two other copies of that edition are located by the Catalogue Collectif de France. Victor Vitensis (b. circa 430) was an African bishop of the Province of Byzacena (called Vitensis from his See of Vita). His importance rests on his Historia persecutionis Africanae Provinciae, temporibus Geiserici et Hunirici regum Wandalorum. This is mainly a contemporary narrative of the cruelties practised against the orthodox Christians of Northern Africa by the Arian Vandals. Much of it is an eyewitness account.

      1537. Alciati, Andrea[s] [1492-1550], Attributed. Hegendorph, Christoph [1500-1540], Editor. Iudiciarii [Judiciarii] Processus Compendiu[m], Atque Adeo Iuris Utriusq[ue]; Praxis. Locis tam Multis, Tamq[uam] Insignibus Integritati Suae Restitutis, Fere ut Nov[um], Ac Pene Aliud Opus hoc Nostrum Iudicet, Qui Primo Illi Coloniensi Contulerit. Accessit huc & Iuris Discendi Methodus, & De Artibus Iurisconsulto Futuro Necessariis, Oratio Elegantissima, Authore Christophoro Hegendorphino. Paris: Apud Ioannem Parvum [Chevallon], 1537. [viii], 271 ff. Signatures M and N (ff. 97-104) bound in reverse order. Octavo (6-1/2" x 4"). Contemporary vellum, raised bands and early hand-lettered title to spine, another title to foot of text block in early hand, ties lacking. Light soiling, rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends, top edge of front board and corners, a few worm holes to boards and front pastedown, partial crack between text block and rear free endpaper. Attractive crible initials. Toning, faint dampstaining to endleaves and a few text leaves. Early owner signature to foot of title page, annotation in his hand to endleaves, interior otherwise clean. * An important Italian humanist and professor of law at Avignon, Bologna, Milan, Padua, Ferrara and Bourges, Alciati was one of the first jurists to base his interpretation of civil law on the history, languages and literature of antiquity, and to conduct original research on the texts rather than merely copy earlier glosses. His work was deeply influential and his services were retained by the kings of France and Spain, as well as by several Italian princes. As one would expect, there was a large market for his works. In addition to those published by Alciati there are several unauthorized publications based on lecture notes compiled by his students. First published in Cologne in 1530, Iudiciarii Processus Compendium, a treatise on procedure in civil and canon law, appears to fall into this latter category. Some sources say it is not based on Alciati's work and is the work of an anonymous author. It was nevertheless a popular work that went through several editions and issues over the next 30 years. OCLC locates 3 copies of this imprint, 1.

        De curatione pleuritidis per Venae Sectionem.

      Lyon, Michaelem Parmanterium, 1537. - in-4. 6ff. 392pp. 10ff. Demi-reliure postérieure. Edition Originale de cet ouvrage sur la saignée d'Andrea Turini (1473-1543), célèbre médecin italien dont la réputation et le savoir lui firent obtenir le titre de médecin personnel des papes Clement VII et Paul III, ainsi que des rois de France Louis XII et François Ier. L'ouvrage fut publié à Lyon avec une préface du grand médecin, littérateur et humaniste français Symphorien Champier (1471- c. 1539) et une lettre d'introduction du médecin italien de Turin, Pietro de Bayro (1468-1558). Andrea Turino dédie son ouvrage au Papa Paul III et au médecin de François Ier Lodovicus Paniza. Ses conceptions sur la saignée suscitèrent en Italie des controverses parmi les grands noms de l'époque, que ce volume illustre à travers 3 textes que Turini a fait imprimer à la suite de son ouvrage: 1). "Epistola Ioannis Manardi, Andrea Turino defenditur opinio De Sectione Venae lateris patientis". 2). "Epistola Ioannis Manardi, ad Iacobum Pharusium, Regiensem medicum, de Vena Sectione in Pleuritide et Spodio" (Ioannes Manardi, célèbre médecin italien, Ferrara 1462-1536). 3). "Andreae Turini ad Matthaeum Curtium Ticinen. De Vena in curationes Pleuritides incidenda". (Mathhaeus Curtius autre célèbre médecin italien,1475-1542). Un dernier opuscule, adressé au même Curtius concernant la nourriture, termine le volume. 4). "Disceptatiuncula medica adversus Mathaei Curtii, de prandi et coenae ratione". Mouillures claires. Durling, 4431. [Attributes: First Edition]

Vellum worn and stained, 3 tiny holes to upper cover, tiny piece missing at 2 corners, ties missing, head and tail of spine slightly chipped, crack across spine, lower hinge starting to crack in the middle, 1 paper label chipped, pastedowns replaced with sheets printed in Carpi by Antonio Guidotti in 1640 and 1638, 1 with a poem in Italian for the Saint&#39;s day of San Rocco di Carpi and the other with a poem in Latin for San Antonio Eremita by Giorgio Munarino, each with an illustration of the saint, lacking free endpapers, title page with old repairs to margins, large pale brown stain to upper corner affecting text and top corner of image but without any loss, old inscription partly inked out, genitals of putto also inked out, stain persists throughout the volume although much smaller and in the margin only from the 5th leaf of the prelims, by leaf 186 it is deeper and gradually increases in size entering the text on the last 3 leaves, but not obscuring text at all, 2 tiny holes in fore-edge margin of 2nd leaf of prelims, occasional light soiling to margins, pale water stain to some upper outer margins, 1 small stain on text but no loss of legibility, ink note in margin of contents table, brief note in 4 text margins, tiny worm track or just a single hole in upper margin from leaf 147-216 where it becomes larger, just affecting the top lines of text on the last 3 leaves, but with no loss of legibility, track on last 4 leaves neatly repaired, fore-edge margins neatly strengthened on last 3 leaves. Binding tight and firm. A good copy, complete except for final leaf as noted). Giovanni Villani (c. 1276 or 1280&#150;1348) was a statesman and a banker of Florence. He began his famous history of Florence around 1300 and was still writing it when he died of the plague in 1348. It is divided into 10 books beginning with the Tower of Babel and reaching the year 1200 AD by leaf 38 and 1333 by the end of the end of the 10th book which is all that was printed in this first edition. The Croniche was continued by Villani&#39;s brother Matteo and then by his nephew Filippo ending the narration in 1364. Villani&#39;s Croniche was considered an important work at the time and today his interest in economic details, statistical information, and his political and psychological insights mark him out as one of earliest modern historians. He follows a strictly linear narrative format providing intricate details on many important historical events, such as construction projects, floods, fires, famines, and plagues of the city of Florence and the wider region of Tuscany. The Croniche provides the first known biography of Dante Alighieri (1265&#150;1321), author of the Divine Comedy, whom Villani described as haughty, disdainful, and reserved. The celebrated artist Giotto is described as the most sovereign master of painting in his time. Brunet, Volume V, 1225; Harvard, Italian 16th Century Books, Volume II, No. 540.

        Autograph letter signed to "my cozen Tunstall," most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall

      1537. Rokeby, John (d. 1573). Autograph letter signed to "my cozen Tunstall," most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall (1474-1559). 1 - 1/2pp. N.p., n.d. 223 x 184 mm. Fine apart from light soiling.From ecclesiastical lawyer John Rokeby, who acted as one of Henry VIII's counsel in his divorce from Katharine of Aragon and later served as a member of the Council of the North, a regional administrative body originally established by Richard III and later reinstated by Henry VIII in 1530 as a means of exerting control over England's pro-Catholic northern counties. His correspondent was most likely Bishop Cuthbert Tunstall, who served as president of the Council in 1530 and 1537; Tunstall is best known today as the author of De arte supputandi libri quattuor (1522), the first book published in England devoted exclusively to mathematics. In his letter Rokeby asks Tunstall for a "contribution to enable me to go through with my presant Undertaking . . . I began this Method last yeare but was check'd by ill health & want of the proper Instrument Lond. being too expensive for me & some necessary Cloaths awanting however am now determin'd to goe by sea as soon as possablely I can . . ." Rokeby and Tunstall may have been related, as they were both from the same part of England and Rokeby addressed Tunstall as "cozen."
