Jean Bouchet (1476-1555(?)) was a public prosecutor at Poitiers and writer of the «Grand rhétoriqueurs », a literary movement supported by Louis XII's court. Jean d'Auton, abbé d'Angle and Louis XII's historiographer and poet, taught him poetry and instilled in him the taste for history. Bouchet was close to the important La Tremoille family and became a member of Anne of Brittany's court at the request of the Duchess de la Tremoille, Gabrielle of Bourbon. However he is really remembered now more as a historian than as a poet. After eight years of research in all Poitou and having recorded Louis II La Tremoille's recollections of the reigns of Charles VIII, Louis XII and Francois the First, he published the first version of his "Annales d'Acquitain … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Robert Winter] 1537 settembre In 8vo (cm 15,5), legatura coeva in piena pelle con ricche decorazioni floreali impresse a secco, dorso a tre nervi (porzione inferiore del dorso abilmente restaurata, mancano i legacci), pp. (88), 387, (1 bianca). Mancano le ultime 2 carte bianche. Antiche firme di appartenenza al titolo e numerose sottolineature e annotazioni, sia nel margine che sul risguardo posteriore (probabilmente una copia di studio). Leggere fioriture, qualche lieve alone marginale, ma ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE DATATA e prima edizione fuori dall'Italia, dove fu stampata la prima ed unica volta da Bernardino dei Vitali a Venezia senza data (con ogni probabilità  nella seconda metà  del 1536). L'opera, dedicata a Ercole II d'Este, fu composta fra il 1520 e il 1534 e ottenne l'imprimatur dalle autorità  veneziane nel febbraio del '35. Dopo la morte del Palingenio, che avvenne sicuramente prima del '51 quando Lilio Gregorio Giraldi pubblicò i suoi Dialogi duo de poetis nostrorum temporum, nei quali a p. 95 fa menzione dell'esumazione e del rogo del corpo del Palingenio «ob impietatis crimen», lo Zodiacus Vitae fu dichiarato eretico e inserito nell'Index del 1558 a causa dell'empietà  delle dottrine e dell'aspra critica del clero. Per questo motivo il poema ebbe molto successo nei paesi protestanti, mentre in Italia fu letto solo da pochi liberi pensatori come Giordano Bruno. Esso andò incontro a ben sessanta edizioni e a numerose traduzioni: tra queste la versione inglese realizzata fra il 1560 e il 1565 da Banabe Googe divenne ben presto un testo scolastico dell'età  … [Click Below for Full Description]

in officina Frobeniana, Basel, 1537. Folio. pp. [xcii] 666 [ii]. Roman letter, index in Italic, occasional Greek. Printer’s woodcut device on t-p and last, woodcut initials throughout. Age-yellowing, intermittent light foxing (esp. t-p), occasional contemp. marginalia. A very good, well margined copy in contemp. vellum over bds., later black and gold morocco label on spine. Second edition of this rare and important botanical work - the first general botanical text since the time of Theophrastus - in which Jean Ruel, physician to Francis I, described in detail some 600 plants, as well as a number of species not occurring in the classical texts he drew upon (Theophrastus and Pliny). Ruel also added French names obtained by questioning the peasants and mountaineers during his plant-hunting trips. Divided into three books, the work opens with a dedication to Francis I, followed by a four-page table of contents, and by a very useful eighty-page ‘elenchus copiosissimus’ an alphabetical index of all the species mentioned. The first twenty chapters of the first book contain a general introduction in which elements of botany such as roots, branches, barks, leaves, flowers, germination, grafting, fruits, and seeds, together with their medicinal properties, the variety of colours, and even the smells and flavours of flowers and fruits, are dealt with individually. Next comes a long chapter on nomenclature, followed by numerous chapters of varying length, each devoted to a particular plant.

TARTAGLIA, Niccolò.
First edition of the <i>Quesiti</i>, second edition of the <i>Nova Scientia</i> (first, 1537), the two most important works of Tartaglia (1499-1557), and containing the extremely rare instrument plate, which is virtually unknown.<br/><br/> "Few European mathematicians of the 16th century had been as directly affected by war as Niccolò Tartaglia. In 1512, when still a boy, he received a facial wound during the sack of Brescia by the French. Left with a speech defect he adopted the nickname of Tartaglia ('stammerer') to replace his original surname Fontana. If Tartaglia's very identity was marked by war, he in turn reshaped the character of military discourse by identifying a 'new science' of artillery and casting it as a mathematical discipline ... A measure of Tartaglia's importance for the study of artillery is that [his] account was still being paraphrased and parroted into the later 17th century" (mhs.ox.ac.uk/geometry/cat1.htm).<br/><br/> I. Tartaglia's first work, the foundation of the new sciences and a major catalyst for the researches of Galileo. "<i>The New Sciences</i> stands at the threshold of a new age in the history of mechanics" (<i>Printing and the Mind of Man</i>). Tartaglia investigated problems of ballistics, fortification, surveying and engineering and sought to apply mathematical analysis to physical problems, free from the conceptual constraints of Aristotelianism and Scholasticism. "Tartaglia proved both mathematically and experimentally that the trajectory of a missile fired from a cannon was a curved line throughout, thus contradicting the 'impetus' … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne, Johannes Prael for Peter Quentel, May 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 traites 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. - VD 16, B 1440.

BRUNSCHWIG, Hieronymus.
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.

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.

Il testo è contornato dai commenti di Servio, Donato, Landino, Badio Ascensio e altri eruditi. Essling I, 70. Sander III, 7671. Mortimer Harvrd, 525 (ediz. del 1544).

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...»

Heresbachio, Conrad; Diuno, Andrea
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).

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 through … [Click Below for Full Description]

VD16 W 743. - Seltener erster Druck dieser Schilderung der Ereignisse auf der Bundesversammlung von Schmalkalden im Februar 1537, auf der erstmals die sogenannten Schmalkaldischen Artikel vorgelesen wurden. Die Artikel, die im Auftrag des sächsischen Kurfürsten Johann Friedrich im Dezember 1536 verfasst wurden und eigentlich erst auf dem vom Papst Paul III. einberufenen Konzil zu Mantua am 23. Mai des Jahres vorgelesen werden sollten, wurden 1544 zur Bekenntnisschrift des evangelisch-lutherischen Glaubens erhoben und von den führenden Köpfen des Protestantismus unterzeichnet. Der Augsburger Drucker Philipp Ulhart (gest. 1568) hat neben verschiedenen gelehrten Werken vor allem theologische Schriften der Reformation hergestellt. Zwei weitere Drucke mit leicht variiertem Titel erschienen im selben Jahr bei Georg Rhau in Wittenberg. - Einige Blatt im Bug mit kleinen unauffälligen Hinterlegungen, Titel mit geschlossenem und hinterlegtem Eckeinriss, rechte untere Ecke mit kleinerem Wasserfleck.

Rokeby, John
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." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

APOLLONIUS Pergaeus.
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" (Cajor … [Click Below for Full Description]
