Seine feuilletonistische Begabung blieb nicht totes Kapital. Was er erlebt und beobachtet hatte, machte er unbedenklich für die Geschichte fruchtbar. Und was hatte dieser internationale politische Agent nicht alles gesehen! Keiner konnte so anschaulich aus seinen Erinnerungen erzählen, keiner wußte über so mannigfache Dinge Bescheid . Freilich tiefer als die andern drang er deshalb kaum ein" (Fueter 117). - Seltener Solinger Frühdruck; Johann Soter betrieb hier seit 1537 die erste Presse. Insgesamt vierter Druck im 16.

        Oratio de bello adversus Turcam suscipiendo, ad Ferdinandum Ungariae Boemiaeq[ue] regem, & Principes Germaniae. Basel, J. E. Froben, 1538.

      1538. 4to. 36 pp. With woodcut printer's device on title page, repeated on reverse of final leaf. Early 19th century marbled boards. First Latin translation of Agricolas "Oration, Anred und Vermanung Herrn Ferdinandum zu Ungern" (Nuremberg, Peypus, 1531), an anti-Ottoman pamphlet of the Turkish wars in Hungary which began with the siege of Vienna in 1529 and lasted well into the 1550s. "A quite unneccessary, broadly garrulous oration, probably never delivered as a speech but disseminated in print only. Agricola gives a long-winded account of the Turks' cruelties, and of Germany's great power since ancient Roman times, and warns that Germany is now threatened by the Turkish forces which had besieged Vienna 'with guns' the previous summer. Hungary must be given every assistance etc." (Kertbeny, p. 89). "No writer has so praised the superiority of the Imperial armaments over the apparently weak Turkish weaponry as did Agricola (1490-1555), the father of mineralogy. In particular, he stressed the vastly superior arms of the German mercenaries who fought with sturdy spears, protected by solid helmets, while the Turks had but flimsy pikes, 'like little knives'. Victory over so poorly equipped an enemy, he promises, is therefore nothing less than certain. Agricola even seems convinced that a general insurrection of all the peoples subjugated by the Turks is imminent. His oration was written a few months after the siege of Vienna, which may explain his excessive optimism" (Göllner I, p. 208). - Some browning and waterstaining throughout (more pronounced in title page). Rare; only three copies in libraries via VD 16 (BSB Munich; Staatsbibliothek Preußischer Kulturbesitz Berlin; Austrian National Library). VD 16, A 924. Adams A 340. BM-STC German 8. Göllner I, 617.

        (Italia)

      1538. "Questa insolita mappa, senza titolo, orientata con il nord in basso, è inserita a pag. 23 dall'opera dello scrittore romano Gaio Giulio Solino (III sec. d.C) Collectanea rerum memorabilium, meglio nota col titolo di Polyhistor (""il curioso"", ""l'erudito""), edizione di Basilea del 1538. La prima edizione dell'opera di Solino fu pubblicata a Venezia nel 1473. Ispirata dalla Naturalis historia di Plinio il vecchio, dalla Chorographia di Pomponio Mela, dall'opera di Svetonio e, con ogni probabilità, anche da quella di Marco Terenzio Varrone, è una raccolta di notizie storiche, naturali, soprattutto geografiche. L'edizione del 1538 è la prima a contenere 18 mappe geografiche, attribuite al Münster, che intervenie anche sul testo aggiornando le informazioni di carattere geografico. Xilografia, margine destro corto, per il resto in ottime condizioni. Rara." This unusual map, untitled, oriented with north at the bottom, is inserted at p. 23 of the Polyhistor, Basle, 1538, p. 104. Julius Solinus (ca. 250 A.D.) was a Roman geographer of some repute. His POLYHISTOR. was first published by Nicholas Jenson in Venice in 1473, and Isingrin's edition of 1538 was the first to contain maps by Münster. Münster also added notes to the text containing up - to - date geographic information. Latin text underneath the map and on the verso. Woodcut, very fine condition. Basilea Basle R.

      1538Venundatur Venetiis [Venise], in taberna Libraria Divi Bernardini, 1538. Deux parties reliées en un fort volume petit in-12 (111 X 157) en veau brun, dos lisse orné de faux-nerfs, caissons dorés ornés aux petits fers et fleuron central, large frise en queue, pièce de titre maroquin rouge, coupes et coiffes ornées, tranches jaspées en rouge (reliure début XVIIe); (1) f. blanc, (8) ff. dont titre, 472-215 [i.e. 115] ff. dont second titre, (45) ff. d'index, (1) f. blanc. Petit cachet ancien de cire rouge, en partie manquant, sur le premier titre; notes manuscrites au verso du premier feuillet blanc et en marge du premier titre. BELLE BIBLE IMPRIMÉE À VENISE AU DÉBUT DU SEIZIÈME SIÈCLE. Le Nouveau Testament possède un titre et une pagination propres. Les deux titres sont illustrés d'un grand bois gravé et le texte, agrémenté de fort jolies lettrines, est imprimé en caractèresromains avec de nombreuses manchettes. Cette vulgate suit l'édition lyonnaise de Guillaume Boullé (1537), qui reproduit elle-même le texte de l'édition parisienne de Robert Ier Estienne (1532). UNE ÉDITION PORTATIVE : la réimpression, complète ou partielle des Livres Saints, par Robert Estienne, avait scandalisé le zèle sacerdotal de la Sorbonne. Qu'une édition portative et correcte ait put mettre la version latine du Nouveau Testament à portée, et pour ainsi dire, sous la main d'un plus grand nombre de lecteurs, fit crier à l'hétérodoxie. Sous prétexte que certains passages avaient été infidèlement reproduits ou interprétés, les Sorbonnistes poursuivirent les imprimeurs et éditeurs de leur colère. Ces volumes, grands ou petits, si corrects, d'un si séduisant usage, et qui avaient en quelque sorte ouvert à tous le livre entier des textes sacrés, c'était là le véritable grief, le motif mal dissimulé des clameurs théologiques; et plus d'un Sorbonniste, en cela fidèle aux doctrines ultramontaines, trouvait que, pour une telle témérité, le feu n'était pas un châtiment trop sévère pour celui qui avait fait son occupation principale de la continuelle réimpression des Saintes Écritures. BEL EXEMPLAIRE, dans une reliure réalisée au début du XVIIe siècle, d'une remarquable fraîcheur. (Delaveau-Hillard, "Bibles imprimées du XVe au XVIIIe siècle conservées à Paris",n°834 - Renouard, "Annales de l'imprimerie des Estienne", pp. 35-36, pour l'édition des Estienne de 1532). NICE COPY.

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.

        CONSILIUM DELECTORUM CARDINALIUM, & aliorum praelatorum, de emendanda Ecclesia. S.D.N.D. Paulo III ipso iubente conscriptum & exhibitum. 1537

      Heinrich Petreius, 1538. THE START OF THE CATHOLIC REFORM MOVEMENT - ERASMUS CENSORED - LATER PUT ON THE INDEX4to. (10) leaves (a4 b6). With the woodcut coat - of - arms of Pope Paul III on the title - page. Later boards, bookplate of the Law Society on the front pastedown, slightly browned but a very nice copy.AMONG the seven Latin editions printed in 1538 cited in V. Schweitzer, ed., Concilii Tridentini Tractatuum, Pars Prior, (Freiburg/Br., 1930), pp. 131 - 132, the present one is not recorded, whereas an edition supposedly printed at Cesena seems to be a ghost. The work was first printed by Blado in Rome at the beginning of the year 1538 and immediately reprinted by Gottardo da Ponte in Milan. Then it was variously reprinted north of the Alps (possibly through Cardinal Nikolaus von Schönberg). Probably first at Nuremberg by Heirich Petreius (our copy), whose edition is textual the most accurate and typographically the most appealing (and the only bearing the date 1537 on the title - page). It was followed by reprints from Cologne (Melchior von Neuss), Strasbourg (Mylius, edited by Johann Sturm), Antwerp (Stelsius) and Leipzig (Wolrab, edited by Johannes Cochlaeus). Petreius probably also published the first German translation (cf. VD16, C - 4930, using the identical woodcut coat of arms as in our edition). This translation was reprinted in Augsburg (Ulhart). A further translation by Martin Luther with the latter's preface and commentary was issued at Leipzig (Lufft), in which he is mocking the Consilium as a mere piece of flattery of the anti - Christian pope by cardinals who do not themselves recognize their own complicity in the evils about which they so superficially write in their &lsquo,reforming&rdquo, treatise'. The reformer and educator from Strassburg, Johannes Sturm approached the Consilium more seriously, applauding the effort made by the Catholic Church to abolish some of its most pressing abuses, but showing great concern whether the church could revitalize itself without giving greater importance to the Gospel. The German anti - Protestant polemicist, Johannes Cochlaeus defended the report in his Aequitatis discussio super consilio delectorum cardinalium in the same year. It was again issued at Tübingen in 1555 with a pungent introduction by the Italian reformer Pier Paolo Vergerio.This report on the abuses in the Catholic Church is considered one of the most important documents in its history (cf. J.C. Olin, Catholic Reform from Cardinal Ximenes to the Council of Trent, 1495 - 1563, NY, 1990, p. 20). It was requested by Pope Paul III (Alesssandro Farnese, 1468 - 1549), who convoked for this task in July 1536 a commission presided by Cardinal Gasparo Contarini (1483 - 1542).The commission sat for nearly four months and on March 9, 1537 formally presented its report, which was read by Cardinal Contarini in presence of the Pope. Apart from Contarini the document was signed by eight other members of the commission: Gian Pietro Carafa (the later Pope Paul IV), Cardinal Jacopo Sadoleto, bishop of Carpentras, Reginald Pole, Cardinal of England, Federico Fregoso, archbishop of Salerno, Girolamo Aleandro, archbishop of Brindisi and papal nuncio, Gian Matteo Giberti, bishop of Verona, Gregorio Cortese, abbot of San Giorgio in Venice and Tommaso Badia, Master of the Sacred Palace and papal theologian. The report is a surprisingly frank and incisive attack on the venality and other abuses associated with the curial system. Paul III accepted the recommendations but did not commit himself to any immediate changes (cf. A. Aubert, Il &lsquo,Consilium de emendanda ecclesia'. Riforma della chiesa e propaganda religiosa nel Cinquecento, Roma, 2008, passim, K.R. Bartlett M. McGlynn, eds., The Renaissance and Reformation in Northern Europe, Toronto, 2014, pp. 214 - 220, W.V. Hudon, The &lsquo,Consilium de emendanda ecclesia and the 1555 Reform Bull of Pope Julius III: Dead Letters or Building Blocks?', in: &ldquo,Reform and Renewal in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance&rdquo,, T. M. Izbicki C. M. Bellitto, eds., Leiden, 1999, pp. 240 - 258), H. Jedin, A History of the Council of Trent, St. Louis, MO, 1957, I, pp. 423 - 427, B. Schmidt, Die Konzilien und der Papst, Freiburg/Br., 2013, p. 176 - 177). &ldquo,The Consilium.. proclaims the need to reform the entire clergy from the highest levels down to that of the simple cleric. It states that the cardinals should reside in Rome, taking part of the government of the church and receiving equal incomes, and should not accept additional benefices, especially bishoprics, which are incompatible with their residence in Rome. Bishops should reside in their dioceses so as to be able to supervise them and to give good example to the clergy, who in turn must fulfill their own pastoral functions. The thorny problem of individuals and ecclesiastical corporations exempt from episcopal jurisdiction must be resolved, since such exemptions contribute to institutional disorder. The memorial closes with recommendations for improving the government and morals of Rome, and for removing public scandals&rdquo, (E.G. Gleason, Gasparo Contarini. Venice, Rome and Reform, Berkeley, CA, 1993, p. 148).The main reason because the Consilium was put in 1557 on the Roman Index of Paul IV (who curiously was one of the signatories of the Consilium as Cardinal Giovanni Pietro Carafa) probably was its wide circulation in Protestant areas and also its use as anti - Catholic propaganda (cf. J.M. de Bujanda, et. al. ed., Index de Rome: 1557, 1559, 1564: les premiers index romains et l'index du Concile de Trente, Sherbrooke, 1990, p. 586 - 587, no. 670 and also F.H. Reusch, Der Index der verbotenen Bücher, Bonn, 1883 - 1885, I, pp. 396 - 399). The Consilium also demanded the control over the press and expressly wanted to see banned from the schoolrooms Erasmus' Colloquia familiaria, &ldquo,quae rudes animos informant ad impietatem&rdquo, (&lsquo,in which there is much to educate unformed minds to ungodly things', leaf b5v) (cf. S. Seidel Menchi, Erasmus als Ketzer: Reformation und Inquisition im Italien des 16. Jahrhunderts, Leiden, 1992, pp. 166 - 167).VD16, C - 4922, Universal STC, no. 624958, H.J.

      Lyon, George Renault, 1538. - 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.

        Oratio de bello adversus Turcam suscipiendo, ad Ferdinandum Ungariae Boemiaeq[ue] regem, & Principes Germaniae.

      Basel, J. E. Froben, 1538. - 4to. 36 pp. With woodcut printer's device on title page, repeated on reverse of final leaf. Early 19th century marbled boards. First Latin translation of Agricolas "Oration, Anred und Vermanung Herrn Ferdinandum zu Ungern" (Nuremberg, Peypus, 1531), an anti-Ottoman pamphlet of the Turkish wars in Hungary which began with the siege of Vienna in 1529 and lasted well into the 1550s. "A quite unneccessary, broadly garrulous oration, probably never delivered as a speech but disseminated in print only. Agricola gives a long-winded account of the Turks' cruelties, and of Germany's great power since ancient Roman times, and warns that Germany is now threatened by the Turkish forces which had besieged Vienna 'with guns' the previous summer. Hungary must be given every assistance etc." (Kertbeny, p. 89). "No writer has so praised the superiority of the Imperial armaments over the apparently weak Turkish weaponry as did Agricola (1490-1555), the father of mineralogy. In particular, he stressed the vastly superior arms of the German mercenaries who fought with sturdy spears, protected by solid helmets, while the Turks had but flimsy pikes, 'like little knives'. Victory over a so poorly equipped enemy, he promises, is therefore nothing less than certain. Agricola even seems to be convinced that a general insurrection of all the peoples subjugated by the Turks is imminent. His oration was written a few months after the siege of Vienna, which may explain his excessive optimism" (Göllner I, p. 208). - Some browning and waterstaining throughout (more pronounced in title page).

        Constituições do Arcebispado de Braga.

      Lisbon, G. Galhardo, 1538.. FIRST EDITION. Folio (28.1 x 20.5 cm), late nineteenth-century brown morocco by Emile Rousselle, spine richly gilt with raised bands in six compartments, gilt fillets on bands, gilt title in second compartment from head, gilt place and date at foot, covers with triple ruled border in gilt, double gilt fillets on outer edges of covers, inner dentelles gilt, binder's name stamped in gilt in lower portion of inside front cover, marbled endleaves, all text block edges gilt. A beautiful specimen of printing, with woodcut title page (royal arms within an elaborate architectural border) and initials. Gothic letter. Overall in fine condition. (10), 84 ll. *** FIRST EDITION of the rules promulgated by D. Henrique for the Archbishopric of Braga. D. Henrique (b. 1512), son of King Manuel and brother of D. João III, was a highly educated man: he studied under Clenardus and Pedro Nunes, among others. At the age of 14 he took orders, and by papal bull of 30 April 1533 was named administrator of the Archbishopric of Braga, to become archbishop when he reached age 27. During the two years he served at Braga, D. Henrique traveled extensively in the territory, made improvements to the city of Braga, opened schools, and summoned two noted humanists - Johannes Vaseus and Nicolaus Clenardus - to teach at Braga. Later D. Henrique was named archbishop of Évora, archbishop of Lisbon and, in 1546, cardinal. He was inquisitor general for 40 years (1539-80), regent (1562-68), and after the death of D. Sebastião at Alcácer Quibir became king (1578-80). By the sixteenth century, Braga had long been one of Portugal's most important cities. It was head of one of the three Galician districts under the Romans, and by the time of the first Council of Toledo (433) had a bishop. It seems to have been granted metropolitan status ca. 433, although this was lost during the Moorish occupation. Braga's struggle against Toledo and Compostela for primacy of the Peninsula was closely paralleled and intertwined with Portugal's struggle for political autonomy during the twelfth century. Throughout medieval times, Braga exercised primacy within the political bounds of Portugal, and even over some Spanish bishoprics in Galicia. These @Constituições are the first constitutions of Braga to have been printed in Portugal, and apparently the first ever to have been printed. The set of constitutions that King Manuel thought had been published in Salamanca, ca. 1512 was actually the @Breviarium bracarense first published at D. Diego de Sousa's order in Braga, 1494 (see Haebler, @Early Printers of Spain & Portugal p. 89), and published again in Salamanca on D. Diego's order, by agreement with Joannis de Porris, in 1511 and 1512. The same printer did a @Missale secundum ritum ... bracharensis ecclesie in Salamanca, 1512. (On the @Breviarium and @Missale, see Cuesta Gutierrez, @La Imprenta en Salamanca, pp. 127, 129, 130; and Palau 35638.) The @Constituições published in 1538 are the result of a synod convoked by D. Henrique on 10 September 1537. The assembled clergy examined not only the ancient constitutions of Braga, but also those of Lisbon and Évora, "por serem mais conformes e convenientes aos costumes e tempo." *** Anselmo 615.

        Sermoni agli eremiti del divo Aurelio Agostino Hipponense ... Nuovamente stampati. Et ... espurgati.

      Venice: [colophon: Domenego Zio e fradelli] 8vo (15.3 cm, 6"). [160] ff.. 1538 Attributed to St. Augustine but now relegated to the "spurious, doubtful" category of his works, these sermons enjoyed a wide audience within the Church for centuries. This is an early Italian edition of the famous text first published in Latin in 1477, here printed in roman type, double-column format, with many woodcut initials in various styles (historiated, floriated, criblé, black on white and reverse) and sizes. The title-page features a woodcut device of three fleurs-des-lis; and the printer's device of a circle with a double cross and the initials D.Z.V.F. appears below the colophon, which is dated 1537. A Doctor of the Church, St. Augustine (354–430) "dominates the Christian tradition of the West, of which he may be considered the founder" (NCE). Binding: 19th-century paneled calf rather elaborately bordered with multiple rules and rolls in blind, with a flower tool at the inner corners of the border on each board; gilt turn-ins and all edges gilt. Provenance: Early ink ownership signature of M. Bains(?) and pen marks on title-page. WorldCat finds no copies in the U.S. of this edition, which is => not in NUC Pre-1956. COPAC locates only the British Library copy. Bound as above, recently rebacked with title and date gilt on spine, new endpapers. Light age-toning throughout, turning moderate on last few leaves.

        DE ORBIS TERRARUM SITUA COMPENDIUM

      Nuremberg, 1538. Small quarto. Modern calf, spine gilt, raised bands. A few instances of early manuscript notes in the margins. Minor, expert repair to the foredge of the titlepage. Light, even tanning. A very handsome copy. The first and only edition of a geographical description of the world whose last chapter, "De Terris et Insulis nuper repertis," is devoted to the Americas. Amerigo Vespucci is named as the discoverer of the New World, which Rithaymer dubs "America" in his honor. The chapter also includes references to Temiscela (Mexico), Haiti, Cuba, and Brazil, and reports two islands discovered under the auspices of Ferdinand and Isabella, but with no mention of the discoverer. There is also information on Java, Madagascar, and Zypangrus (Japan). The map, a sphere with Europe, Africa, and Asia at its center, is not noted by Shirley. Rithaymer, a native of Mariazell in Styria, relates much detailed information, based on his personal knowledge and observations, and on sources such as Vadianus, Ziegler, and Tornadel. Not in Borba de Moraes, Church, or Medina. OCLC locates only two copies, at Yale and the University of Minnesota. Rare and significant.

        Comedia di Messer Lodovico Ariosto intitolata gli Soppositi.

      Stampato in Vinegia per (H)icolo di Aristotile di Ferrara detto Zoppino, 1538. In 8vo (cm. 15,4); pergamena molle di epoca successiva; grande xilografia con il ritratto dell?Ariosto al frontespizio attribuito al Tiziano; carte 34 numerate + 2 bianche. Edizione assai elegante e rara che il catalogo Manzoni del 1892 dichiarava ?édit. inconnue?, mentre invece era già stata citata sia dal Gamba, sia dal Graesse. Agnelli - Ravegnani, pp. 100. La Commedia riesce piuttosto divertente, come già nella Cassaria, notevoli i riferimenti a situazioni della vita contemporanea (vedi il racconto di Filogono del viaggio da Catania a Ferrara, con i continui pericoli trascorsi), per cui l?autore fonde la materia antica con l?attualità. Un personaggio caratteristico è quello di Cleandro, il primo, forse, tra i tanti pedanti del teatro erudito. A. Mango. La Commedia in lingua nel Cinquecento, n. 27bis. Axs
