Petrarch. Petrarca, Francesco, 1304-1374; Alunno, Francesco
Venetia (Venice): Francesco Marcolini, 1539. First printing. Hardcover. Good. Published 1539. 8vo, later marbled boards, 16cm, elaborate woodcut title page with portrait of Alunno, A-XX in 4s with 2 pp errata afterwards. Appears to be complete. The second part of a book often found bound two parts in one, the first part called 'Il Petrarca, con le Osservationi di Messer Francesco Alunno.' The first part contains work by Petrarch, this second part is Alunno's concordance of words found in Petrarch's works. Alunno (1485-1556) from Ferrara was a literary critic and grammarian; this appears to be his first published work, which he followed up some years afterwards with a study of the Italian vernacular of Boccaccio and the Decameron. Binding is worn and there are library marks on the spine and endpapers, could use a rebind, text very good and bright.

Folio, Gothic & Roman letter, with woodcut border to title & a profusion of woodcuts in the text, oramental initials, ccclxxxix leaves. Disbound, in cloth folding box. ¦ The woodcuts are from the identical blocks which were used for the Latin Terence printed at Lyons in 1493 and represent the most artistic illustrative works produced by the early French school.

Paris, 1926, pp.358-367. ÒA very curious and interesting volume...

Haymo era un sacerdote benedettino del IX secolo (morì nel 853), dopo aver percorso, tra cui Tours, e ha ricoperto diverse posizioni, tra cui l'insegnamento nel monastero di Fulda, fu nominato abate del monastero di Haberstadt. Era uno scrittore prolifico e la maggior parte delle sue opere sono commenti dalle Scritture e il libro che presentiamo relativo alle epistole di St. Paul. In linea con la tradizione esegetica del suo tempo, Haymo non era un commentatore originale, e le sue idee sono prese dai Padri della Chiesa, ma la sua posizione tende ad accentuare le profonde testi morali e mistici commenta, e le sue opere hanno interesse a riflettere l'epoca in cui visse. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition rare, inconnue à la Bibliothèque Nationale de France et à de nombreuses bibliothèques.

Papeus, Petrus.
sub intersignio Rubri Castri [colophon: Typis Guilhelmi Montani]. Early edition, possibly the first, of "The Samaritan," Papeus's popular Latin school comedy: a humanist work blending classical Latin conventions, Biblical source material, and elements of medieval morality plays. Not only was this => the first known theatrical staging of the Good Samaritan story, it was one of a vanishingly small number of such school plays to spread, gain recognition, and endure outside of its own immediate locale. Written for performance in 1537 at Papeus's school in Meenen, West Flanders, the work was first published in 1539; in that year, two stand-alone editions appeared, as well as one combining the it with another play -- none of which are widely institutionally held (WorldCat finds => only three U.S. locations of the present edition). The elegantly produced printing at hand, from the press of Gulielmus Montanus, features the Montanus "Tangit montes et fumigant" printer's device at the colophon, an architectural woodcut border on the title-page, a criblé woodcut initial, and head- and tail-pieces. The Neo-Latin text is in roman with one line curiously in Greek. Binding: Recent period-style brown calf framed and panelled in blind double fillets with gilt-tooled corner fleurons, spine with blind-ruled raised bands. Evidence of Readership: The title-page (only) of this copy is extensively annotated -- upside-down! -- in an early inked hand, and there are scattered small grammar and spelling corrections throughout, neatly and unobtrusively done in early ink. Provenance: From the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tagli rossi. Impresa tipografica al titolo (replicata al colophon) con una palma tra i cui rami è infissa una trave, il tutto entro uno scudo. Sparse gore, bruniture e diffusi lavori di tarlo alla legatura e al testo della prima opera talora toccanti il testo; lievemente rifilato. Discreto stato. Prima edizione di entrambe queste due opere dell'umanista e poligrafo ferrarese. Il "De Sepulchris" è una dissertazione sui sepolcri e i riti funerari nelle varie epoche; la "Vita Erculis" è un'esposizione della vita del mitologico Ercole. Scrive Simona Foà nel Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (LVI, 2001): "La Vita Erculis.. è un'opera compilativa, in cui il Giraldi ha raccolto e ordinato criticamente i riferimenti presenti all'interno delle letterature classiche alla figura di Ercole (in filigrana è palese l'esaltazione della figura di Ercole II d'Este, protettore del Giraldi). Se queste prime due opere avevano al centro degli interessi del G. alcune figure mitologiche, i lavori successivi avranno un respiro più ampio, arrivando a trattare, dapprima in forma tematica, quindi in forma via via sempre più ampia aspetti diversi della cultura greco-romana.

TACITE, (Publius Cornelius Tacitus).
Un volume in-12 de 422 pp., (1 f.). Reliure plein vélin, dos plat décoré, tranches noires, pièces de titre et de datation en maroquin rouge. Les Annales et Histoires de Tacite en langue vulgaire (italien). L'emploi au XVIe siècle d'une autre langue que le latin pour un texte antique mérite d'être noté. Vincent Vaugris (Vincezo Valgrisi pour les Italiens), éditeur et libraire d'origine française, quitte Lyon en 1539 pour exercer son talent à Rome et à Venise jusqu'en 1573. Comme éditeur, il travaille avec l'imprimeur Comin da Trino. Leurs réalisations communes font partie des sommets de l'édition italienne du XVIe siècle. - Bel exemplaire d'un ouvrage rarissime. Petit manque sur la pièce de titre. Comme beaucoup d'ouvrages italiens, il a été relié avec les seules gardes en papier marbré.

GOES [or Góis], Damião de.
Louvain, Ex officina Rutger Rescius, 1539.. FIRST EDITION. 4°, late nineteenth-century or early twentieth-century half vellum over marbled boards (some soiling to vellum). Some light dampstains. Tiny singed hole, slightly larger than a pinpoint, to 10 leaves. In good condition. Bookplates of William Gropp and [Antonio] Bonchristiano. (22 ll.). A-D4, E6. Several leaves bound out of order. *** FIRST EDITION of a work interesting for its contemporary description of events in India and for the fact that its popularity helped disseminate Portuguese humanism in Europe during the Age of Discoveries. The work was translated to Italian (Venice, 1539?) and German (Augsburg, 1540). Neither translation included the poem by Petrus Nannius on the final two leaves ("Elegiacum in Damiani a Goes equitis Lusitani viri non minus humanitate que literis exculti commentarios, de rebus citra Gangem in India gestis"). The Italian translation also omitted the letter to Bembo that begins on f. E2r. The Commentarii was published in Latin in 1544, 1574, 1602, 1603, and 1791 as Diensis oppugnatio, which appears here as the running head. A Portuguese translation was finally published in 1945. On ff. A1v-E1v, Goes gives a detailed account the first siege of the Portuguese fortress at Diu, in 1538. The Sultan of Gujarat in alliance with Ottoman Emperor Suleiman I (1494-1566) attempted to capture the fortress, but the Portuguese successfully held out for four months. In a separate letter on ff.

A LARGE PAPAL BULL OF POPE PAUL III ON VELLUM
Italy, 1539. This highly decorative Papal Bull affirms certain privileges bestowed on the Dominican community of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, the headquarters of the Dominicans in Rome. It confirms that (male) members of the community have the right to preach, kindle lights at night, say Mass, hold a procession on the Friday after Corpus Christi, and visit the sick. The Dominicans are also given permission for charitable works, such as hearing confession and bringing the sacrament to the sick at the hospital of San Giacomo in Augusta, Santa Maria del Popolo, Saints Cosmas and Damian, and the hospital of Santo Spirito in Sassia. The document states that the monks are not to pass judgment outside their own jurisdiction or pronounce excommunications, and further that the nuns should not wander about the streets, but instead remain within their cloister. Paul III (1468-1549) served as pope from 1534-49, following the two Medici popes, Leo X and Clement VII. A humanist and art patron like the Medici, Paul is credited with beginning the work of the Catholic Reformation, intending to instill a renewed discipline and dedication within the Church.. 559 x 737 mm. (22 x 29"). Single column, 59 lines of text in a humanist hand. Occasional lettering in red, "IN XPI NOMINE AMEN" in large, multicolored letters at the top of the text, THREE GOLD-FRAMED MEDALLIONS WITH MINIATURES OF SAINTS PETER AND PAUL ON EITHER SIDE, AND TWO ANGELS HOLDING A CHALICE AND COMMUNION WAFER IN THE MIDDLE, both edges with a full floral border in multiple colors.

Erodoto
per Bernardino de Bindoni (Melchiorre Sessa), 1539. In-8° (160x102mm), ff. 304, (4), legatura antica in m. pergamena con titolo calligrafato al dorso. Piatti cartonati. Impresa tipografica del Sessa al frontespizio con gatto con topo in bocca entro cornice figurata con motto "Dissimilium infida societas". Capilettera istoriati. Antica firma al margine superiore del frontespizio. Qualche gora ed arrossatura. Esemplare leggermente rifilato al margine superiore, ben conservato nell'insieme. Seconda edizione (la prima fu impressa nel 1533) del volgarizzamento del Boiardo della sezione delle "Storie" di Erodoto dedicata alle guerre fra Greci e Persiani, condotto sulla versione latina di Lorenzo Valla. "Al tempo degli Epigrammata la vena poetica del Boiardo aveva già trovato il suo naturale sfogo nel volgare; l'attività più strettamente umanistica dello scandianese si prolunga, però, con le cinque versioni: le Vite di Cornelio, la Ciropedia, l'Asino d'oro, le Storie di Erodoto e quelle di Ricobaldo. I frequenti abbagli mostrano un rapido distacco del Boiardo dalla lingua latina (per i testi greci lo scandianese si rifece a versioni umanistiche); d'altra parte la rarità di soluzioni d'arte conferma che tali versioni rientrano nel quadro dei volgarizzamenti cortesi sollecitati dagli Estensi.. La traduzione delle Storie di Erodoto è condotta sulla versione del Valla, in una redazione manoscritta che dovette essere assai più scorretta della stampa (Venezia, 1474): nulla di preciso si può dire sulla data se non che l'unico manoscritto a noi noto è datato 1491."
