ERASMUS, DESIDERIUS
Basileae: Per Hier. Frobenivm et Nic. Episcopivm, 1538. Hardcover. 178 x 114 mm (7 x 4 1/2"). 8 p.l., 864 pp., [28] leaves. Pleasing contemporary blindstamped Lyonnaise calf over wooden boards, expertly rebacked to style, covers framed with thick and thin rules and a decorative roll including a tulip, a sunburst, and a Janus face, raised bands, remnants of brass clasps, ENDLEAVES FROM A 12th CENTURY MANUSCRIPT (once serving as pastedowns, now raised up). Printer's device on title and last page. Early ink inscriptions on title; signature of Jacobus Lorfeus[?] on last page. VD 16 E 2038. For the binding: Gid, "Reliures Francaises," I, 365 and II, plate 45, CHf9. Light rubbing to extremities, vague stains and scratches to boards, isolated rust spots and marginal smudges, other trivial imperfections, but a very pleasing copy, the text clean, crisp, and bright, and the carefully restored binding scarcely worn and generally well preserved. First published in 1531, Erasmus' "Apophthegms" culls wise adages from Greek and Roman sages and statesmen, all given in Latin. He begins with a lengthy series of laconic sayings of the Spartans, followed by Greek philosophers, with the Cynic Diogenes (suitably for the taste of the author of "In Praise of Folly") taking up more space than Socrates. Among statesmen, Pericles, Alexander, Cicero, Pompey, and Julius Caesar all find a place, as well as Cato the Elder, Tiberius, and even a handful of Persian kings. The quotes are introduced with historical settings, and Erasmus' performance certainly illustrates the breadth of his learnin … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

VIVES, Joannes Ludovicus
Basel: Robert Winter, 1538 Book. Fine. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (194x138 mm). [8], 264 pp. Printer's device on last leaf. 19th-c full leather with blindstamped supralibros (the Flemish lion) on both boards, spine with 4 raised bands. Endpapers renewed, title with old cancel stamp, neat ink annotations and markings in old hand, small dampstain spot to foremargin of most pages. A good clean copy. ---- Adams V-939; Garrison-Morton 4963.2; BM/STC German p. 898; Norman 2159 (also w/o index); Zilboorg & Henry, pp. 180-195. - THE VERY RARE FIRST EDITION OF VIVES'S MOST IMPORTANT PSYCHOLOGICAL WORK. This copy is without the index at end: approximately half of the known copies are without the index, suggesting that some copies of this work may have been sold before it was completed. A friend of Erasmus and Thomas More, Vives has been called "the father of modern empirical psychology..." (Zilboorg & Henry). "Vives anticipated Bacon and Descartes in devoloping an empirical psychology in which the mind was to be studied both through introspection and observation of others. From his exhaustive analysis of memory he developed a theory of association of ideas, which recognized the emotional origin of certain associations, as well as the link between associations, emotions and memory. He was also the first to describe the physiological effects of fear" (Garrison-Morton). Vives maintained that the essence of the human mind was indescribable but could be known through the mind's actions..

HOLBEIN, Hans
Lyons: M. and G. Trechsel [for J. and F. Frellon], 1538. First Edition. Hardcover. Stamp removed from title verso, G4 and H1 reversed in binding, light soiling. Near Fine and very scarce. Hans Holbein. Small quarto (5" x 6-1/2") bound in 19th-century English diced russia leather, tooled in blind, marbled endpapers and edges; 94 pages + colophon with blank verso. Housed in a modern green cloth slipcase. Illustrated with Treschel device on the title page and 92 woodcuts by Hans Lützelberger and others after Holbein. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (with Judith rather than Job depicted on I2) of Holbein's influential illustrations for the Old Testament. With this publication "Bible illustration at Lyons changed significantly" (Mortimer). The set was re-used in Bibles by the same publishers and copied widely at Paris, Zurich, Antwerp, and elsewhere. The first four smaller blocks are from Holbein's Dance of Death series, published the same year; the remaining blocks are of Old Testament subjects. Holbein showed supreme skill at placing grand spiritual narrative within a compact domestic setting, thereby challenging the popularity of classical themes. The preface by François Frellon on the title page verso urges the reader to reject the images of goddesses such as Venus and Diana in favor of the "sacrosanctas Icones." Brunet III, 252: "Ces planches en bois ... ont été gravées avec beaucoup de délicatesse, d'après des dessins, en tout ou en partie de la main de Hans Holbein: les exemplaires en sont fort rares"; Graesse, page 317; Mortimer, FRENCH SIXTEENTH CENTURY BOOKS, 276.

SADOLETO JACOPO.
per Thomam Platterum 1538 Pp. 247 (1). Preceduto da: SADOLETO J. De liberis recte instituendis, Liber. Venetijs, Io. Ant. et fratres de Sabio, 1533. Cc. 52. Marchio tipografico al frontespizio. Unito a: SADOLETO J. Interpretatio in Psalmum, Miserere mei deus, S.M.M.T. Senza note tip. (ma Verona, Stefano Nicolini da Sabbio e fratelli), 1532. Cc. (32). Tre opere in un volume di cm. 15,5, legatura ottocentesca in mezza pelle con punte, dorso con fregi e titoli a secco. La seconda opera (De liberis) con un alone chiaro alle carte ed un timbro di biblioteca religiosa estinta al frontespizio. Esemplare peraltro piuttosto marginoso e ben conservato. Rara miscellanea di tra opere dell'ecclesiastico Sadoleto (Modena 1477 - Roma 1547). Fra queste spicca il testo: De bello Turcis.... Si tratta infatti dell'edizione originale in raccolta di una interessante serie di scritti di alcuni umanisti rinascimentali sulla guerra contro i Turchi. Particolarmente interessante risulta il trattato del Vives in cui si mettono in guardia le nazioni cristiane dal pericolo dell'egemonia ottomana e fa appello ai principi della cristianità affinchè si richiamino ai valori dell'unità e della pace universale. Lorenzo Riber così si esprime al proposito: "Era enorme y alucinante la atraccion que el Turco ejecia sobre las mentes debiles del momento y hacia allà tendian como à un paraiso que cada cual se fingia y tenia con los colores de su propio deseo. Para salir a camino y cortar estas ilusiones escribio Vives este opuscolo".

Castelli took his doctorate in 1546 and taught civil law at the University till May 1551, when he attended the Council of Trent in the suite of Cardinal Marcello Crescenzi. Many of the Commissions applied to him for advice and draughting, for example concerning the safe conducts for the Protestant delegates, and the eternal question of referring matters direct to the Pope (which he strongly supported) instead of to the local superior. In the spring of 1563 he was at the resumed council at Innsbruck. In 1566 he was 'poached' by Cardinal Borromeo to Milan, as Vicar-General, to help with his Tridentine reforms. Castelli's bishop, Gabriele Paleotti, was reluctant to let him go, as being his right hand man in similar work, and pointed out that his preferments at Bologna included the cure of 600 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Compared to Erasmus's own writings, ""of almost equal importance for the history of humanism and education are the editions he prepared of the classical authors … They were of two kinds: editions of the text itself, usually with a commentary; and, in the case of the Greek authors, translations into Latin. These editions had wide circulation and served to open the ancient world to a far broader public than had access to it before"" (Houghton Library, Erasmus on the 500th Anniversary of his Birth, 42a). The first Erasmus edition was printed in 1532 and was subsequently printed no less than 40 times during the 16th and 17th centuries.

Tricasso, Patricio (or, Tricasse des Ceresars, Patrice)
Per Agostino de Bindoni, Venice, 1538. Sm. 8vo. 344pp. Illustrated with a large woodcut vignette on title page, verso of title and colophon with devices, and 78 woodcuts of hands keyed to the text. Cont. vellum with manuscript spine lettering. Light browning and soiling, including title page, but overall a very nice copy in a contemporary binding. An early Italian language edition of one of the most popular works on chiromancy of the 16th century. Tricasso (1491-c.1550) was a disciple of Barthelemy Cocles. At variance with Cocles on a number of points, he set out in this work to analyze the significance of 78 configurations of hands, as well as to outline the supposed astrological implications. His work is frequently cited by many later writers on the subject. As with other copies cited in OCLC, the date at the conclusion of the author's preface is misprinted "1635" (it should be "1535," the date of the first Italian edition of this title).
