GROPPER
1538. Title within an elaborate armorial woodcut border with some letters coloured, large woodcut of the Crucifixion on K2verso (partly coloured), small armorial woodcut on K4recto, woodcut initials, rubricated from f. I-LXXI. Folio (322 x 200mm.) ff. [10], I -XLVII, [2], XLVIII- CCCXIII, [7]pp. 17th-century French smooth calf, gilt panels on covers with armorial corner-pieces, spine with raised bands, compartments gilt with arms/monogram. From the library of Jean Boyer, archdeacon of Conques 1508-41. This is one of some 40 plus books known to have belonged to him, printed between 1501 and 1545, some of them (not many) surviving in contemporary bindings executed at Rodez, the books dispersed in a number of French libraries. No example from his library is known outside France. The books have his powerful ex-libris written on the title-page, and the idiosyncratic and late rubrication (at least in part) plus the colouring of letters etc. in headings. The volume is not annotated (although there are notes on the verso of title-page and on f.xxvi), but its appearance and decoration is clearly to be identified solely with one man, and one man alone. The author Johann Gropper (1503-59) of Soest in Westphalia studied at Cologne University from 1516 . In 1525 he was appointed an official of the provost of Cologne cathedral, and later, having taken orders, he was given various ecclesiastical preferments. Present at the diets of 1529 and 1530, it was the latter that prompted him to concentrate on theological studies, and this work which contains the decisions of a reforming synod of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Cyri Paediae (Cyropaedia)" by Xenophontis [Xenophon]. The "Cyropaedia" (or Cyropedia) is a biography of Cyrus the Great, originally written in the early 4th century BC by the gentleman-soldier, and student of Socrates, Xenophon of Athens. The Latinized title "Cyropaedia" derives from the Greek "Kúrou paideía" (Κύρου παιδεία), meaning "The Education of Cyrus". Aspects of it would become a model for medieval writers of the genre known as mirrors for princes. In turn it was a strong influence upon the most well-known but atypical of these, Machiavelli's The Prince, which was an important influence in the rejection of medieval political thinking, and the development of modern politics.~ wikipedia Published in its original Greek text in 1538, this copy is quite rare. It contains two volumes (bound as one) and is comprised of "quatuor priores" (the first four parts) printed in 1538, and "quatuor posteriores" (the last four parts) printed in 1539. Bound in calf with embossed decoration on the covers. Restoration work to the spine and joints. Wear and soiling to the covers and edges. Moisture stains to the entirety of the gutters which spreads into the textblock and boards. The front endpaper is missing. Ink signatures and notations on the front paste-down, title page, leaf in between volumes, and rear endpaper. A rare copy of this important and influential work.

(BINDINGS - BRESLAUER MASTER H. B.). MELA, POMPONIUS
Basel: Robert Winter, 1536; Basel: Thomas Platter, 1538. This collection of classical and humanist geographical texts was bound by the artisan who is known as H. B., someone active in Breslau in the second quarter of the 16th century who bound books for the library of the Protestant reformer Johann Hess. Haebler first finds evidence of H. B.'s activity in 1525, and he notes that the binder used stamps dated 1536 or 1540, which he speculates were important years in H. B.'s life. Scholars have been unable to determine the identity of H. B., beyond his work for Hess and the Saxon State Library. According to Haebler, H. B. often added the date of the binding to the front cover, as he has done here. H. B. seems to have ceased work by 1559; Haebler notes that another binder added his own initials (P. L.) to one of H. B.'s rolls, and changed its date from 1536 to 1559. Written in the first century A.D. by the first Roman geographer, the first treatise here is the only work in classical Latin wholly on geography. The text is largely a list of place names, but it is enlivened by occasional details, such as the information that the Thracians do not know the use of wine, but sit about the fire, eating seeds that induce a certain hilarity. The author Pomponius, a flat earth proponent, postulated the theory of a vast ocean stretching southward from Egypt, thus dividing the world-disc into two, the southern portion containing an undiscovered continent. The book was printed as early as 1471, but the first well-edited version was by Vadianus (published originally in Basel in 1522). In add … [Click Below for Full Description]

MELA, POMPONIUS
Basel: Robert Winter, 1536; Basel: Thomas Platter, 1538. This collection of classical and humanist geographical texts was bound by the artisan who is known as H. B., someone active in Breslau in the second quarter of the 16th century who bound books for the library of the Protestant reformer Johann Hess. Haebler first finds evidence of H. B.'s activity in 1525, and he notes that the binder used stamps dated 1536 or 1540, which he speculates were important years in H. B.'s life. Scholars have been unable to determine the identity of H. B., beyond his work for Hess and the Saxon State Library. According to Haebler, H. B. often added the date of the binding to the front cover, as he has done here. H. B. seems to have ceased work by 1559; Haebler notes that another binder added his own initials (P. L.) to one of H. B.'s rolls, and changed its date from 1536 to 1559. Written in the first century A.D. by the first Roman geographer, the first treatise here is the only work in classical Latin wholly on geography. The text is largely a list of place names, but it is enlivened by occasional details, such as the information that the Thracians do not know the use of wine, but sit about the fire, eating seeds that induce a certain hilarity. The author Pomponius, a flat earth proponent, postulated the theory of a vast ocean stretching southward from Egypt, thus dividing the world-disc into two, the southern portion containing an undiscovered continent. The book was printed as early as 1471, but the first well-edited version was by Vadianus (published originally in Basel in 1522). In add … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Cyri Paediae (Cyropaedia)" by Xenophontis [Xenophon]. The "Cyropaedia" (or Cyropedia) is a biography of Cyrus the Great, originally written in the early 4th century BC by the gentleman-soldier, and student of Socrates, Xenophon of Athens. The Latinized title "Cyropaedia" derives from the Greek "Kúrou paideía" (Κύρου παιδεία), meaning "The Education of Cyrus". Aspects of it would become a model for medieval writers of the genre known as mirrors for princes. In turn it was a strong influence upon the most well-known but atypical of these, Machiavelli's The Prince, which was an important influence in the rejection of medieval political thinking, and the development of modern politics.~ wikipedia Published in its original Greek text in 1538, this copy is quite rare. It contains two volumes (bound as one) and is comprised of "quatuor priores" (the first four parts) printed in 1538, and "quatuor posteriores" (the last four parts) printed in 1539. Bound in calf with embossed decoration on the covers. Restoration work to the spine and joints. Wear and soiling to the covers and edges. Moisture stains to the entirety of the gutters which spreads into the textblock and boards. The front endpaper is missing. Ink signatures and notations on the front paste-down, title page, leaf in between volumes, and rear endpaper. A rare copy of this important and influential work.

With 2 woodcut printer's devices. 18 lvs. First Latin translation of "Oration, Anred und Vermanung Herrn Ferdinandum zu Ungern" (Nuremberg, Peypus, 1531), an pamphlet on the Turkish wars in Hungary which began with the siege of Vienna in 1529. "Agricola gives a long-winded account of the Turks' cruelties and warns that Germany is now threatened by the Turkish forces. Hungary must be given every assistance." No writer has so praised the superiority of the Imperial armaments over the apparently weak Turkish weaponry. He stressed the superior arms of the German mercenaries, while the Turks had but flimsy pikes. Victory over a so poorly equipped enemy is nothing less than certain. His oration was written a few months after the siege of Vienna, which may explain his excessive optimism" (Kertbeny, p. 89 etc.). With preface by Georg Fabricius dedicated to Chemnitz and at the end a letter of Laurentius Bermannus to king Ferdinand, ex valle Joachimi April, 1530. A catholic with a broad humanistic education, George Agricola spent most of his life in Saxony as an educator, physician, scientist, and expert on mining and metallurgy. His outlook was more secular than that of the other pamphleteers. He viewed the Turkish question primarily as a militair and economic problem rather than as a divine visitation. In one respect his views resembled those of the other Catholic writers: he envisaged the eventual extirpation of the Islamic religion at the point of the sword.

Parisiis: Ex officina Christiani Wecheli, 1538. 8vo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). [24] ff. Rare Parisian edition of this popular letter writing guide first published in 1526 and presented in numerous editions in the 16th century. Hegendorff, a Protestant scholar and "travelling salesman of humanism and reform," was inspired by Erasmus' De conscribendis epistolis to produce it, incorporating examples from classical authors as well as his own correspondence, following his earlier work Ratio epistolarum conscribendarum compendiaria. Though the text is mostly of a secular nature, Hegendorff does show his Protestant leanings by choosing to omit a list of positive Catholic clergy epithets found in the earlier guides that he used as his template (Letter-writing Manuals and Instruction from Antiquity to the Present, p. 155).    This edition appears to be previously unrecorded, with searches of WorldCat, COPAC, and the NUC Pre-1956 revealing no copies held by any institution. The text is printed in single columns using mostly italic and some roman with a handful of passages in Greek; it is enhanced by one decorative woodcut initial and curly brackets spanning several lines, with Wechel's printer's device appearing on the title-page and final page.

There are numerous woodcut diagrams in text.there are two restorations affecting right margin of folium 3 and 10 slightly touching letters ( phtos of these two folios are included in this file.Middle XX century brown leather with gilt title on spine. Internally a very good copy. This book contains the first printed description of a telescope illustrated with a woodcutrepresenting two lenses and rays of light. Fracastoro studied at the university of Padua later becoming professor of logic from 1501 to 1508.There he coincided most probably with Copernicus because he studied there several years from 1501. Fracastoro went back to Verona and died there in 1553 dedicated to astronomy,medicine and poetry. Homocentrica is based in the cooperation between Fracastoro and Giovanni Battista Della Torre in order to develop a new astronomical system. Fracastoro followed the homocentric model of the greek astronomers Eudoxus and calippus he carried out modifications in the spheres so that all the spheres have their axes at right angles of each other.

Le lettere sono indirizzate a varie personalità (Bembo, Cosimo de' Medici, il Re di Francia, Iacopo Sansovino, Ludovico Dolce, Paolo Manuzio, Vasari, Tiziano, Michelangelo ecc.), e contengono pettegolezzi, indiscrezioni, vivaci polemiche, considerazioni sull'arte e la letteratura, brevi racconti di avvenimenti familiari e confessioni personali, che ne fanno un notevole documento della vita politica e culturale del tempo. La raccolta ebbe un inaspettato e straordinario successo, consacrò l'Aretino a precursore del giornalismo moderno, e diede inizio a un nuovo e fortunato genere letterario.

Hegendorff, Christoph.
Ex officina Christiani Wecheli, 1538. Rare Parisian edition of this popular letter writing guide first published in 1526 and presented in numerous editions in the 16th century. Hegendorff, a Protestant scholar and "travelling salesman of humanism and reform," was inspired by Erasmus' De conscribendis epistolis to produce it, incorporating examples from classical authors as well as his own correspondence, following his earlier work Ratio epistolarum conscribendarum compendiaria. Though the text is mostly of a secular nature, Hegendorff does show his Protestant leanings by choosing to omit a list of positive Catholic clergy epithets found in the earlier guides that he used as his template (Letter-writing Manuals and Instruction from Antiquity to the Present, p. 155). This edition appears to be previously unrecorded, with searches of WorldCat, COPAC, and the NUC Pre-1956 revealing no copies held by any institution. The text is printed in single columns using mostly italic and some roman with a handful of passages in Greek; it is enhanced by one decorative woodcut initial and curly brackets spanning several lines, with Wechel's printer's device appearing on the title-page and final page. A select few pages are paginated. Evidence of Readership: An early reader has added one word to the text and filled the page bearing the printer's device with two poems and penmanship practice, which makes sense given the content. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

[First printed Statutes of a Hispanic University]
First edition, the first printed statutes of any Hispanic University, to-date the oldest standing Spanish University. A fascinating insight to the first rules ever printed about the governing of a Spanish University, which at the same time is the oldest-standing University of Spain -and the Hispanic World; the contents are varied in nature, they include both the administration of the institute and instructions to the members of the academia, with specifics notes on the faculty (some peculiarities being the teacher could not make use of any aids, the students couldn't turn their backs on the teacher, and on the case when they had butlers, they were still required to carry their own books, without help). The University of Salamanca was founded in 1134 after being given the Royal Charter by King Alfonso IX in 1218, besides being the oldest such institution in Spain, it is also the third oldest in the World in continuous operations. The reputation of the University grew rapidly, and became a symbol of excellency and academia across Europe, throughout the centuries, people as Miguel de Cervantes, Hernan Cortes, Antonio de Nebrija, Miguel de Unamuno, Adolfo Suarez, Simon de Rojas, and Francisco de Vitoria, amongst many others, studied there. An extremely rare book, we find copies at: Universidad de Salamanca calling for 30 ff. and 2 blanks (making it incomplete against this copy), Biblioteca Nacional de Espana and BNF, both collating 32 ff. of which E5v and E6 are blank. Rare in the market, no copy has ever appeared for sale according to RBH. Palau, 83 … [Click Below for Full Description]
