        Vrijheid van Utrecht - Specht + Ottens, 1696.

      UTRECHT EN OMGEVING?Caerte vande Vryheyd der Stadt Utrecht volgens decisie vanden jare 1539?'. Kopergravure uit 1696 van Caspar Specht, ongewijzigd heruitgegeven tussen 1708-1719 door Joachim Ottens. Deels in de tijd, deels later met hand gekleurd. Afm. (prent) 37 x 53 cm.De kaart werd vervaardigd om de stadsjurisdictie weer te geven. Deze behelsde het op de kaart gekleurde en met een stippellijn omgeven gebied. Waarschijnlijk ging het stadsbestuur niet akkoord met de grenzen zoals die op de kaart van Specht zijn weergegeven. Het is anders niet goed te verklaren dat het in 1698 door Gabriel Reets een (inmiddels verloren gegane) andere kaart liet maken.In de legenda linksonder wordt verwezen naar gebouwen en straten in stad. De legenda rechtsonder somt de schoutambachten en lage gerechten op.Over Caspar Specht zelf is weinig bekend. Hij was graveur en kunsthandelaar, vermoedelijk een leerling van Steven van Lamsweerde. Specht was in 1686 decaan van het schilderscollege te Utrecht.Literatuur: Marijke Donkersloot de Vrij, ?Kaarten van Utrecht?' (1989), nr. 1402Prijs: ?1.350,- (incl. lijst).

With numerous woodcut diagrams and other mathematical figures in text. Contemporary vellum.

      - Simoni C-86 (STCN indicates this copy lacks title-page and preliminaries); STCN (3 copies, each apparently lacking some leaves present in ours); cf. Bierens de Haan 840 (Marcus issue). First Latin edition of two important mathematical treatises by Ludolf van Ceulen (1539-1610) both translated by Van Ceulen's pupil, Willebrord Snell (1580-1626). There are at least three and perhaps more issues of the present edition. Apparently with all leaves ever present in this issue, whereas most copies lack one or more. The present Van Colster issue is clearly intended for the Dutch Republic and its supporters while the Van der Marsce issue is clearly aimed at the Spanish-controlled Southern Low Countries and its supporters. The Marcus issue is more neutral.With a 1639 inscription on an endleaf. With some manuscript notes and calculations in at least two early hands, some struck through. Some ink stains. In good condition. The binding is dirty and some of the sewing supports broken at the joints.

      Apud Ambrosium Girault et In aedibus Claudii Chevallon. Fourth edition produced by Lodoycus Tiletanus for the first text; this edition has been shared between multiple printers and booksellers in Paris. Brand of printer in the title page. Initials. Colophon: Parisiis, Excudebat Iohannes Lodoycus Tiletanus. MD XXXIX. Not listed in Adams. Edition found several times in the British Library catalog but in different printers. The second book seems to have appeared for the first time in 1532. Magnificent title page woodcut, with the brand of the printer Claude Chevallon Christ in glory and a Nativity with the Virgin Mary and the Magi, symbolic images depicting the position of the widow of Claude Chevallon. Initials. We do not find this edition in English catalogs; a copy of the BNF to the date of 1536 in Gilles de Gourmont. Full brown sheepskin eighteenth. Back to six nerves adorned boxes, arabesques and small florets golden. Cuts and caps highlighted with golden roulette. All slices speckled red. A small loss in the second joint and a flat sections. Scuffs. A few small wormholes. Numerous handwritten notes on the texts, which were trimmed at the time the work was connected again in the eighteenth century. Two very light marginal foxing affecting some pages, otherwise good copy. 65 lines per page. Scriptural writings of Dionysius the Carthusian were published in 1530 and include 14 books, two books that we offer concern two fundamental texts of the Bible: Psalms of David and the four Gospels, two sets, one of the Old will, the second New, quite emblematic reading by the Catholic Church of the Church of Christ. These comments, made authority upon publication (Denys died in 1471) because they bring together all the opinions of the church fathers and theologians of his time. The multiplication of editions of Dionysius in the thirties based on the vast movement against reform-committed by the Church. Protestantism indeed overwhelmingly based on reading the Bible, and the Catholic Church was, drawing on its history, to have the exegetical monopoly. In addition, the Church and supported with Dionysius the Carthusian on a large philosophical and mystical figure involved in spiritual and Christian renewal, plus a canonical figure (the doctrinal position of Dionysius is median between Aristotle, Plato, and St. Augustine ), which is directly opposed to that of Luther, excommunicated in 1521 and outlawed by the Empire shortly after. A bookplate of the nineteenth century one of the guards, as well as several other non-identifiable at the end of the first text and the title page of the second. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

        Teutscher Nation Chronic alt und new Vorbilde. Des gantzen teutschenn Landes und Volcker [Voelcker], anfenglich herkomen [herkommen], Grentze und Gelegenheit der Reiche, Furstenthumb, Bisthumb, Stett und Herschafften...

      Frankfurt: Egenholff, 1539 32 nonpaginated pages, followed by 402 leaves numbered in the upper right recto corner (804 pages). Title page with 2/3 of page illustrated. There are 71 small circular portrait illustrations, most appearing as emperors and within the first 100 leafs. Leaves I, VIII, and XIIII all show small illustrations (quarter to sixteenth page). Leaves measure approx. 29 x 19 cm (11 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches). Bound in full vellum with raised spine bands and extensive tooling showing scenes and portraits assumed to be significant to the content. Engraved brass clasps are intact, albeit a bit tarnished. Vellum is rubbed and scuffed, and shows a little chipping and wear along edges. A small section near the center of the bottom cover shows a near circular crack, though there is no loosening of any part. There is slight residue in the upper two compartments on the spine, suggesting previous stickers have been removed, thought residue is very minimal. There are no other signs of institutional markings. The title page is very slightly soiled and shows a few chips along its fore edge. Light moisture tide marks can be seen on the first three leaves following the title page. Occasional light penciled marks and marginalia. This volume remains tight and generally clean. The pages are crisp, bright, and otherwise intact. Sebastian Franck (1499 - ca. 1542) could perhaps be best described as a theologian seeking his theology. Born into the Roman Catholic Church and being named a curate in the Dioceses of Augsburg at the age of 17, he was also an acquaintance of Reformer, Martin Bucer of Heidelberg. In 1525 he joined with the Lutherans at Nurnberg, becoming a preacher for the Reformation. Nevertheless, he soon was disillusioned with their ideology, and found himself moving toward the Anabaptists before denouncing them as dogmatic and narrow. In 1529 he moved to Strasbourg, which was then the center of the Protestant spiritual movement. Here, it appears that his belief turned inward reflecting a mystical Christian ideology based upon inner illumination of the spirit. He identified the Bible as being full of contradictions and being a sort of puzzle or maze that could only reveal itself though the inner spirit. The only doctrines of the Bible necessary for man in their literal meaning would be found in the Ten Commandments and the Apostle's Creed. In Strasbourg, Franck was eventually jailed for his beliefs before being expelled from the city in about 1532. In 1533 he settled in Ulm. However, ongoing conflicts with the Lutherans pushed him from that city in 1539. From there, he seems to have settled in Basel where he likely lived at the time of his death in the winter of 1542-1543. His criticism of the church and organized religion outlined in his writings and "chronicles" drew the ire of Martin Frecht and Martin Luther, the later who dismissed him as speaking the devils tongue. He was banned and even jailed because of his religious views, and his writings were criticized and outlawed in parts of Germany. The current work expands on, and is likely less inhibited, than his earlier 1538 "Germaniae Chronicon" which had resulted in his expulsion from Ulm. Rare in this edition, with WorldCat showing only two copies, and no copies seen at auction over the previous 50+ years. . Vellum. Good+/No Dust Jacket. Folio.

Here, it appears that his belief turned inward reflecting a mystical Christian ideology based upon inner illumination of the spirit. He identified the Bible as being full of contradictions and being a sort of puzzle or maze that could only reveal itself though the inner spirit. The only doctrines of the Bible necessary for man in their literal meaning would be found in the Ten Commandments and the Apostle's Creed. In Strasbourg, Franck was eventually jailed for his beliefs before being expelled from the city in about 1532. In 1533 he settled in Ulm. However, ongoing conflicts with the Lutherans pushed him from that city in 1539. From there, he seems to have settled in Basel where he likely lived at the time of his death in the winter of 1542-1543. His criticism of the church and organized religion outlined in his writings and "chronicles" drew the ire of Martin Frecht and Martin Luther, the later who dismissed him as speaking the devils tongue. He was banned and even jailed because of his religious views, and his writings were criticized and outlawed in parts of Germany. The current work expands on, and is likely less inhibited, than his earlier 1538 "Germaniae Chronicon" which had resulted in his expulsion from Ulm. Rare in this edition, with WorldCat showing only two copies, and no copies seen at auction over the previous 50+ years. Size: Folio [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The graphical depiction of the World is based upon Ptolemy with all of Africa shown and an open water passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Jost Amman-Bjblische Figuren deß Alten und Neüwen Testaments, gantz künstlich gerissen, Printer: Sigmund Feyerabend and David Zöpfel (Zephelius), Farnkfurt a.M. 1560. - Vita of the artist: Jost Amman, Nürnberg (1539 -1591) was a Swiss-German artist, celebrated chiefly for his woodcuts, done mainly for book illustrations. Amman was born in Zürich and moved to Nuremberg in 1560. He worked initially with Virgil Solis, a leading producer of book illustrations, who died 1 year later. Amman continued the work, his productivity was very remarkable. He was one of the last major producers of woodcuts for books, as during his career engravings were gradually taking over that role. Although like most woodcut artists, he normally let a specialist formschneider cut the block to his drawing. He also executed many of the woodcut illustrations for the Bible published at Frankfurt by Sigismund Feierabend, and for a topographical survey of Bavaria by Philipp Apian. Amman's drawing is correct and spirited, and his delineation of the details of costume is minute and accurate.

Contents: 1) Tractatus arboris consaguineitatis, 2) royal ordinances, and 3) the proceeds of the Court de Parlement de Normandie. <br> An important edition of the customary law of Normandy. Le Rouille's Grand Coutumier retains the original customs of Medieval Normandy prior to the second reform. Traditional Norman law provided one of the foundations of English law, especially during the Plantagenet rule of England. The Custom of Normandy developed from a mixture of legal principles from Scandinavian law and Frankish (Carolingian) law in used in old Neustria, with influences from Roman law and canon law. In 1453, Charles VII of France ordered the drafting of all the customs of France. Normandy was the last to implement the King's edict in 1585. The main provisions of the Coutumier were in force in their medieval state in France until the Revolution. This retention of Norman customary law was a result of the French crown's attempts to placate Norman desire for a continuation of their judicial autonomy. It contains, "125 articles starting with jurisdiction, judicial officers, various ducal rights (for example wrecks and treasure trove), various forms of feudal tenure, legal procedure and legal remedies, succession law, criminal law and punishment, various forms of civil dispute, possession actions, other forms of court action and prescription." (Dawes, Gordon. A Brief History of Guernsey Law, Jersey Law Review. Feb. 2006). It remained the law of the English held Channel Islands, Jersey and Guernsey (Scutton aptly states they "tenaciously retained" Norman law). <br>"There are two compilations of the customary law of the duchy of Normandy that were written in the thirteenth century. One, known as the Tres ancien coutumier (the 'very old custumal'), was written in Latin about the year 1200 when Normandy was still part of the Angevin empire. French and Anglo-Norman translations of it are also known. The other, called by its editor the Summa de legibus in curia laicali ('summary of laws in the lay court'), was composed, also in Latin, sometime between the years 1230 and 1250, at a time when Normandy was under the direct control of the French crown. It was later translated into French in a version that became known as the Grand coutumier de Normandie. The last printed edition of the Grand coutumier de Normandie appeared in 1539 in an edition by Guillaume Le Rouille, and that edition included the Latin text as a sort of appendix."

      Apud Seb Gryphium, 1539-1537. 2 tomi (su 3) rilegati in un solo volume (cm 12 x 16,5), pp. (20) + 699 + (4b) + (1) con marca tipografica; 326. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena. Il primo volume (Epistolarum libros XII...) reca la data di stampa 1539, il secondo volume (Alter tomus operum complectens ea quae ex Graeco in Latinum convertit) reca la data di stampa del 1537. Complessa e' la vicenda editoriale di quest'opera. L'editore tedesco Sebastien Gryphius, stabilitosi a Lione nei primi anni Venti, diede alle stampe le opere di Poliziano a piu' riprese in un arco di tempo che va dal 1528 al 1550. Le opere furono stampate in 3 tomi, tuttavia sembra che egli non li abbia stampati tutti e tre simultaneamente dal momento che di certe edizioni si conoscono solo i singoli tomi. Secondo la ricostruzione dei Baudrier (Bibliographie Lyonnaise), nel 1539 venne stampato solo il tomo I (qui presente), nel 1537 furono stampati il tomo II e il III (qui il III e' mancante). Cfr.

A very good copy of a scarce book (1 copy in the University of Bern, Switzerland, no copies in the Italian libraries, 2 listed in the Bibliotheque Nationale published in Venice the same year by A. de Bindonis, believed to be a later edition). The dedication heading on A2 gives the date 1549, this maybe a misprint. Angelo di Forte's work is a collection of medical and philosophical aphorisms.

Vellum 15.5 cm - This book once belonged to the French painter Jacques-Louis David - (Ref: cf. VD16 ZV 1202; Hoffmann 3,283; Schweiger 1,92; Moss I,505; Ebert 10077; Graesse 5,415) (Details: 2 thongs laced through the joints. Title in Greek and Latin. Woodcut printer's mark of Wendelin Richel on the title and on leaf ee8 verso. Richel (or 'Rihel') was the founder of one of the longest-lived dynasties of Strassburg printers (1535-1639). The mark depicts the winged figure of Nemesis (or Sophrosyne) on a pedestal; she is striding in wet style, and holds in her right hand a hooked rule and in the left a bridle; on the pedestal are the intials W.R. Two woodcut initials. There is an inscription in Greek by the French painter Jacques-Louis David on the front flyleaf. This booklet is the third and final part of of a greater work. It is in fact a supplement to an edition of the scholia on the Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer, entitled 'Homeri interpres', which was brought on the market by Richel in the same year, 1539. VD16 doesnot record this supplement as separately published, though it has a title of its own. An old owner must have had it bound separately) (Condition: Vellum age-toned and slightly soiled. Owner's inscription on the first flyleaf. A date and two page numbers in old ink on the titlepage. Some neat and faint ink underlings and marginalia on ca. 40 p. The verso of the flyleaf in the rear has been inscribed in Greek with the verses 187-195 of the 18th book of the Odyssey) (Note: This book is special for 3 reasons. It once belonged to the French painter Jacques-Louis David, it is an early 16th century book, and it contains 2 texts of the Greek philologist and neoplatonic philosopher Porphyry, which are important in the history of Homeric scholarship. Porphyry, 232/3 - ca. 305 A.D., was more a polymath than an original thinker. In his numerous treatises and commentaries he has the good habit of quoting his sources by name. He thus preserved many fragments of older learnings. (OCD, 2nd ed. p. 864/65) Porphyrius was a student of Plotinus, whose Enneads he edited somewhere after 300. He produced numerous philosophical commentaries on Plato, Aristotle, Theophrastus and Plotinus. His commentary on the Categories of Aristotle became a standard medieval textbook of logic. His philologic work is included in this book, it contains his work on Homer, his 'Homeric Questions', which is a landmark in the history of Homeric criticism, and 'De antro Nympharum', a specimen of allegorizing interpretation. Neoplatonic philosophers worked on the basis of a number of 'sacred' books, the Iliad and Odyssey of Homer, and also the dialogues of Plato, the Theogony of Hesiod, the Orphic poems and the 'Hieros Logos' of Pythagoras. (J.M. Dillon, 'Iamblichi Chalcidensis in Platonis dialogos commentariorum fragmenta', Leiden, 1973, p. 28) This edition of 1539 is the third and last part of a greater work. It is in fact a supplement to an edition of the scholia of the Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer, entitled 'Homeri interpres', which was brought on the market by Richel in the same year, 1539. The editor thought it wise to add to the scholia (probably of Didymus) the philological work on Homer of the Greek scholar Porphyrius, the 'Quaestionum Homericarum ad Iliadem (& Odysseam) pertinentium reliquiae' (Homeric Questions) and 'De Antro Nympharum' (The Cave of the Nymphs). The Homeric scholia and Porphyry were edited by the Austrian humanist Jacobus Bedrotus, or Jakob Bedrott, born 1493 in Bludenz in Voralberg. He went to Vienna to study, became there a protestant and went to Strassburg, where he became professor Greek and Latin at the local Academy. Bedrotus is also known for his edition of Athenaeus (1535). He died in 1541, victim of the plague. In the preface to the first scholia volume (Iliad) Bedrotus declares that he offers a far better and correct version than the edition which was published by Aldus previously in 1521. For this edition of the 'Homeric Investigations' and 'The Cave of the Nymphs' Bedrotus must have used the 'editio princeps', which was produced by J. Lascaris, published in 1517. Just like in the 'editio princeps' we find in the 1539 edition 5 disticha on Porphyrius of Lascaris printed on the verso of the title. With the 'Homeric Questions' Porphyry tries to defend Homer agains the criticism of his detractors. The questions are focused on inconsistencies, contradictions, improbabilities, obnoxious, or scandalous passages, etc. in Homer, for instance the adultry of the gods Ares and Aphrodite. He then applies the important Aristarchan principle of 'Homêron ex Homêrou safênizein', which means that Homer explains himself and thus often solves questions of interpretation. 'Porphyry here demonstrates his ability to be a rational philologist who tries to solve many Homeric 'zêtêmata' by taking recourse to either etymology or comparative exegesis, i.e. by clarifying the meaning of a Homeric passage (or solving apparant contradictions between passages) by means of parallel passages with identical or comparable expressions. The tone is consistingly apologetic: Homer makes no mistakes'. (P.W van der Horst in Bryn Mwar Classical Review 2011.06.02, see http://bmcr.brynmawr.edu/2011/2011-06-02.html) It comes down to this, Homer gives riddles, and Porphyry knows the solution. Is the 'Homeric Questions' a philological work, the 'De Antro Nympharum' is more allegoric. Porphyrius allegorically explains here the passage in Homer's Odyssey about Cave of the Nymphes on the island of Ithaca where Odysseus hoarded the treasures of the Phaeacians on his return home. (Od. XIII, 102-112) Porphyry considers Homer to be a kind of philosopher who hides his philosophic and moral opinions in a literary text, using 'huponoia', which means that 'the real meaning lies at the bottom of a thing' (LSJ) So Homer's cave hides a riddle. It symbolises the kosmos, the material world into which the human soul has descended. It has also a dark side. Its darkness stands for the unseen powers in the material world. Porphyry discusses also the famous cave of Plato, refers to Pythagoras, Heraclitus, Mozes, Zoroaster, Stoics, and the Egyptians, and construes with bold imagination and wondrous combinations an allegoric explanation) (Provenance: In ink on the front flyleaf in Greek: 'ek tôn bibliôn tou dabidos tou tou (sic) Zôgraphou, etei 1 tês eleutherias tôn gallôn'. Below this in normal script (very probably of David himself), but with different ink: 'Questions homériques de Porphyre, 1/4'. This book once belonged to the French painter Jacques-Louis David, 1748-1825, best known for his paintings of Napoleon, and those depicting historical or mythological scenes from antiquity. His family belonged to the 'petite bourgoisie'. His mother sent him to the 'Collège des Quatre Nations' in Paris, where 60 talented young men received a free education. There David must have learned his Latin and Greek, and there he must have absorbed the esthetic ideals of the Greek and Romans. David is considered to be the most important painter of his era. He painted in the Neoclassical style, a style which drew its inspiration from classical art. David also went into politics. He was an active supporter of the French revolution, and was elected 'député' of the 'Convention', where he voted in favour of the death of king Louis XVI. Later he became an admirer of Napoleon. The Greek inscription on the flyleaf is dated 'the first year of the freedom of the French'. This is probably 1789. Soon after the storming of the Bastille on the 14th of July the year 1789 came to be known as 'l'an I de la liberté'. On the 22nd of September 1792 the 'Convention' decided to abolish the christian Gregorian calendar and to introduce a revolutionary calendar which started with the founding of the Republic. 'Tous les actes publics sont désormais datés à partir de l'an I de la Republique', which was declared a year before, on the 21 september 1792. So the 'first year of the freedom of the French' might also be the official year one beginning in 1792. § This book was probably sold on a 'vente mortuaire' of the possessions of David. He died in exile in Bruxelles on 29 december 1825. The French government even proscribed his remains. David's heirs brought his paintings and 'objets d'art' to France where they were dispersed. His sons Jules and Eugène sold part of them, among which the famous painting 'Death of Marat', on an auction in Paris (Drouot) on April the 17th 1826, and more on March the 11th 1835, to pay for the funeral and the grave. Perhaps his books followed the same route) (Collation: aa-ee8 (leaf dd4 recto blank; leaves ee6 verso & ee8 recto blank, ee7 completely blank), deltadelta4 (minus deltadelta1 & deltadelta4) (Photographs on request)

FIRST EDITION 1539, date and imprint taken from colophon, Latin text, small 4to, approximately 150 x 105 mm, 6 x 4 inches, large woodcut portrait of the author on title page, large woodcut coat of arms of Pope Paul III, the dedicatee, on A2 verso, 24 unnumbered leaves, collation: A-F4, Ad Lectorem on F3, errata and colophon on F4, neatly rebound in dark green ribbed paper boards, handwritten paper label to spine, new endpapers. Two tiny wormholes in background at top of portrait, neatly repaired, not touching image of arms on A2, still on A3 but no loss of text, margins of title page lightly browned, very small metal tag on the outer blank margin of final page, otherwise very clean throughout. A very good copy of a scarce book (1 copy in the University of Bern, Switzerland, no copies in the Italian libraries, 2 listed in the Bibliotheque Nationale published in Venice the same year by A. de Bindonis, believed to be a later edition). The dedication heading on A2 gives the date 1549, this maybe a misprint. Angelo di Forte's work is a collection of medical and philosophical aphorisms. The author was a Venetian doctor and astrologer. Not in the Wellcome Historical Medical Library or Richard Durling, A Catalogue of Sixteenth Century Books in the National Library of Medicine, though several of his other works are listed in Durling.

        Donna con un guerriero

      1539. Bulino, 1539, firmato e datato in lastra in alto a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, piccoli restauri agli angoli perfettamente eseguiti, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esponente di punta della scuola Mantovana del '500, lo Scultori è anche conosciuto con i cognomi di Ghisi e Bertano. Allievo di Giulio Romano, è principalmente pittore, dedicandosi all'arte grafica solo nel periodo tra il 1536 ed il 1540. La grande qualità delle sue incisioni, straordinariamente vicine allo spirito di Giorgio Ghisi, hanno erroneamente contribuito a far credere che i due fossero parenti. Engraving, 1539, signed and dated at lower left. After Giulio Romano. A magnific impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, small repaired areas at the upper corners, otherwise in very good conditions. Exponent of the school of Mantova '500, Scultori is also known by the names of Ghisi and Bertano. A pupil of Giulio Romano, is primarily a painter, devoting himself to art graphics only in the period between 1536 and 1540. The high quality of his works, extraordinarily close to the spirit of Giorgio Ghisi, have mistakenly contributed to believe that the two were relatives. A very rare work. Bartsch, XV, 14. 165 97

        Introductio in Chaldaicam lingua[m], Syriaca[m], atq[ue] Armenica[m], & dece[m] alias linguas. [Pavia, G. M. Simonetta], 1539.

      1539. 4to. 213 (instead of 215) ff. (lacking ff. 212-213 and final blank). Title printed in red and black. With woodcut title border and two nearly full-page woodcuts in the text. 19th century half calf (restored) with giltstamped spine. First edition. "The earliest Syrian and Armenian grammar printed" (IA). Extremely rare and early work of oriental studies, also important for the history of music due to the first illustrated description of the bassoon, which the author's uncle, Afranio degli Albonesi, had invented early in the century and had first demonstrated in 1532. - The canon regular Teseo Ambrogio degli Albonesi (often simply referred to as Ambrogio or Ambrosius; 1469-1540) taught the Syriac language. This introduction to the oriental languages - his only publication - is a mixture of lingustic treatise and a collection of exotic alphabets. If Albonesi's results are not in every case correct, they remain of great importance to the history of linguistic scholarship: the "Introductio" constitutes one of those works which inspired the budding discipline of comparative philology to undertake further research. "His work offers a detailed survey of the Syriac and Armenian languages from various points of view, and a short notice about the other exotic languages (Samaritan, Arabic, Coptic, Cyrillic, Ethiopic) - these languages are all discussed with examples written by hand in the earlier chapters, and throughout the work we find blank spaces where such words had still to be filled in" (Smitskamp). Some of the blank spaces mentioned have been filled in in ink by a contemporary hand. Lacks the final two pages of text (including the colophon). Slight worming to upper margin near end. Edit 16, CNCE 816. Adams A 957. Mortimer 20. BM-STC Italian 16. Eitner I, 91. MGG III, 1721. Smitskamp 240. IA 104.625. Brunet I, 229. Graesse I, 59.

        Ragionamento nel quale M. Pietro Aretino figura quattro suoi amici, che favellano de le corti del Mondo, e di quelle del Cielo. -

      (Venezia, Marcolini), 1539. In - 8. Legatura del primo '900 eseguita da Glingler di Roma in marocchino rosso con filetti dorati ed a secco sui piatti, dorso con nervi e fregi oro, ampio merletto dorato interno. Con un grande ritratto dell'Aretino inc. in legno sul frontespizio. 55 ff., manca l'ultimo foglio bianco; margine esterno un po' irregolare, testo leggermente sbiadito e qualche antica sottolineatura a penna. Rara seconda o terza edizione (prima: 1538). In questo Ragionamento l'Aretino «rovescia completamente l'utopia di Castiglione, condannando la figura dell'intelletuale - cortigiano, ormai da tempo non più illuminato consigliere di un principe somma di tutte le virtù, ma individuo dedito all'intrigo, alla menzogna e alla continua ricerca del proprio tornaconto personale. La descrizione della corte è terribile: luogo ove regnano vizio e corruzione, sotto la continua minaccia di violenze...» (Montinaro, L'Utopia rovesciata di Aretino, Biblioteca di via Senato, IV - 2011). Brunet I, 410. Casali, Annali del Marcolini, 38 (la crede per sbaglio un'impressione del '700). Sander 520.

Impensis Magistri Godefridi Hitorpii, Coloniae (Cologne) 1539, fort petit in 8 (16,2x11cm), non paginé et non folioté., relié. - Edition rare, inconnue à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France et à de nombreuses bibliothèques. Belle reliure Renaissance en plein veau glacé marron avec dos à 4 nerfs, Plats formé d'un rectangle central séparé en son centre et orné de rinceaux, riche frise encadrant le rectangle composé d'anges musiciens, d'un flutiste, d'un joueur de tambour et d'éléments décoratifs. Fentes pour l'emplacement des lacets (aujourd'hui disparus). Coiffe supérieure restaurée, et menues restaurations diverses (bordures, coins et pages de garde...). Un Vol. fort petit in 8 non paginé et non folioté. Haymo fut un prêtre bénédictin du IXe siècle (il meurt en 853), après avoir voyagé, notamment à Tours, et exercé différentes fonctions, notamment d'enseignement au monastère de Fulda, il sera nommé abbé du monastère d'Haberstadt. Il fut un écrivain prolixe et la plupart de ses ouvrages sont des commentaires des écritures saintes, ainsi du livre que nous présentons qui concerne les épitres de St. Paul. Suivant en cela la tradition exégétique de son temps, Haymo ne fut pas un commentateur original, et ses idées sont puisées chez les pères de l'église, mais sa position tend à accentuer le caractère profondément moral et mystique des textes qu'il commente, et ses ouvrages ont l'intérêt de refléter le siècle dans lequel il vivait. - Photos sur www.Edition-originale.com - [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Rare edition, unknown to the BNF and many libraries.

Slots for the location of laces (now extinct). Top cap restored, and various minor restorations (edges, corners and cover pages ...). A Vol. very small in 8 unpaged not folioté. Haymo was a Benedictine priest of the ninth century (he died in 853), after traveling, including Tours, and held various positions, including teaching in the monastery of Fulda, he was appointed abbot of the monastery of Haberstadt. He was a prolific writer and most of his works are comments from the scriptures and the book we present concerning the Epistles of St. Paul. In line with the exegetical tradition of his time, Haymo was not an original commentator, and his ideas are taken from the church fathers, but his position tends to accentuate the deep moral and mystical texts he comments, and his works have interest to reflect the age in which he lived. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.
