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.

SERLIO, Sebastiano (1475-1554). -
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 wo … [Click Below for Full Description]

(4 fogli alla fine spesso rimossi), ma senza l'Eneide. «Una delle più belle e pregiate edizioni figurate del sec. XVI» (Mambelli, Edizioni virgiliane, 179). 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). Camerini, Giunti, I, 396 e 220: «Le figure provengono da i legni già usati nell?edizione del 1519... 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...»

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). 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)]. T … [Click Below for Full Description]

[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]

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]

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]

APOLLONIUS OF PERGA (MEMO, Giovanni Battista, ed.)
Venice: Bernardinus Bindonus, 1537. First edition. '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 m … [Click Below for Full Description]

VICTOR OF VITE bishop of Utica (d. 535)
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.

TURINI (Andrea).
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.

Heavy dampstaining and wear to one of the lengthier manuscripts, affecting legibility. About very good. A substantial collection of manuscript material dating from 1537 to 1870, concerning Guatemala. There are approximately forty- five manuscript documents, with the majority being from the 18th and early 19th centuries. A few were written in Spain and concern the region, but most were authored in Guatemala. There are two fragmentary manuscripts from the 16th century, and three lengthier pieces from the 17th century (45pp. total). One manuscript from 1649, numbering 26pp., makes references to "[Bartolome de] Las Cassas." Twenty manuscripts date to the 18th century, totaling about 200pp. These include a brief manuscript that references an earthquake in 1751, and a series of nineteen letters or receipts all stitched together. A further eighteen manuscripts are from the 19th century, all but two of these from the first half of the century, totaling about 150pp. Several of these are signed by Jose de Bustamente y Guerra (1759-1825), the Spanish naval officer who served as Captain General of Guatemala from 1810 to 1817. A small manuscript map, drawn around 1800 is also present, as is a later (possibly early 20th century) pen and ink drawing of three native women by Antonio F. Tejeda.

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 . . ."

Erasmus of Rotterdam
London - Apud viduam M. Csaris impensis I. Coccii 1537 - A scarce and early Latin Bible, holding the New Testament. Adorned with several beautifully engraved, decorative, capitals. Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus known as Erasmus of Rotterdam, or simply Erasmus, was a Dutch Renaissance humanist, Catholic priest, social critic, teacher, and theologian. Erasmus was a classical scholar who wrote in a pure Latin style. He was a proponent of religious toleration, and enjoyed the sobriquet Prince of the Humanists; he has been called the crowning glory of the Christian humanists. Using humanist techniques for working on texts, he prepared important new Latin and Greek editions of the New Testament. These raised questions that would be influential in the Protestant Reformation and Catholic Counter-Reformation. He also wrote The Praise of Folly, Handbook of a Christian Knight, On Civility in Children, Copia: Foundations of the Abundant Style, Julius Exclusus, and many other works. Erasmus wrote both on ecclesiastic subjects and those of general human interest. He seems to have regarded the latter as trifling, a leisure activity. By the 1530s, the writings of Erasmus accounted for 10 to 20 percent of all book sales. The popularity of his books is reflected in the number of editions and translations that have appeared since the sixteenth century. Ten columns of the catalogue of the British Library are taken up with the enumeration of the works and their subsequent reprints. This charming biblewas originally published in 1516, and became the foundation of all critical Bible studies, dee … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sebastiano Grifio 1537 Unito a ALCIATI Andrea, In Digestorum sive Pandectarum libri XII, Lione Sebastiano Grifio, 1538; unito a ALCIATI Andrea, Parergon iuris libri tres, Lione, Sebastiano Grifio 1538. Tre opere in un volume in-folio (cm 33x23), pp. (8), 264, (12); (16), 66, (2); 316, (16) [per quanto concerne l'ultima opera, si è riportata la numerazione per colonne che appare nel testo: il testo è disposto su due colonne per pagina. Lo scritto si compone in realtà di 166 pagine]. Marca tipografica al frontespizio e in fine in ciascuna delle tre opere. Legatura in mezza pergamena coeva con piatti in cartone. Segni di tarlo al dorso. Alcuni piccoli segni di tarlo nei margini bianchi, molto lontani dal testo. Andrea Alciati, insigne giurista, nacque ad Alzate, nei pressi di Milano, l'8 maggio 1482. Fu dapprima avvocato in Milano, poi dal 1518 al 1521 fu professore di diritto Civile nell'Università di Avignone. Tornato nuovamente in Milano, nel 1528 Francesco I lo chiamò all'Università di Bourges, ove rimase sei anni e la sua fama divenne mondiale. Nel 1532 Francesco Sforza lo richiamò ad insegnare all'Università di Pavia. In seguito insegnò a Milano, Bologna, Ferrara. Morì a Pavia il 12 giugno 1550. L'Alciati meritò senz'altro la fama di grande umanista e di principe degli studi giuridici: iniziatore di una nuova età nello studio della giurisprudenza, quella che andò poi sotto la denominazione di Scuola culta, fu profondo conoscitore delle letterature greca e latina, riassumendo in sé, armoniosamente e in altissimo grado, attitudini e preparazioni disparate. I posteri lo ha … [Click Below for Full Description]

APOLLONIUS Pergaeus
Large-paper copy, uncut in the original wrappers. 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. 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). "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/></ … [Click Below for Full Description]

DRYANDER, Johann
Title within woodcut border, folding letterpress table, & 23 woodcut illustrations (19 are full-page). Woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. 36 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern vellum-backed boards (ruled border of woodcut on f. 17 slightly shaved, very skillful and almost invisible paper repair to lower inner margins diminishing towards the end with very small parts of the extremity of the woodcut on f. 4v touched). Marburg: E. Cervicornus, 1537. First edition of the first significant book on the anatomy of the head and one of the most important illustrated anatomical treatises before Vesalius. Johann Eichmann, usually known as Dryander (1500-1560), studied anatomy at Paris with Vesalius and was one of the first to perform public dissections in Germany. In 1536 he published his Anatomia Capitis Humani (which is of the greatest rarity) and the following year published the present book, the first part of his Anatomia Corporis Humani, which was never completed. This work expanded on the earlier 1536 book, and incorporates eleven of its full-page woodcuts with the numbers removed and the four smaller cuts of the skull seen from different angles. Dryander's illustrations in this book formed a dissection sequence starting with removing the scalp and skull-cap, and then continued to expose the meninges and the cerebral hemispheres, then the cerebellum, and finally the base of the skull. The text was expanded with new material on the lungs and the heart, as well as with the 12th-century Anatomia Porci of Copho (fl. c. 1110), first printed at Lyon in 1523, an … [Click Below for Full Description]
