        Della perfettione della vita politica libri tre.

      In - folio; 12 cc., 316 pp.; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso e al taglio inferiore (piccole mancanze alle cuffie). Sporadiche sottolineature di antica mano. Piccolo alone al margine bianco interno di poche carte centrali, occasionali non gravi punti di fioritura, perlopiù marginali. Bell'esemplare assolutamente genuino. Prima edizione, assai rara, dell'opera principale di Paolo Paruta (Venezia, 1540 - 1598), storiografo ufficiale della Repubblica di Venezia dal 1579. Il Della perfettione ebbe vasta risonanza, fu tradotto in inglese nel 1657 e costituì un'importante fonte di ispirazione per le "Considerations sur les causes de la grandeur des Romains et de leur décadence" (1734) di Montesquieu. Nell'opera troviamo una difesa della "Repubblica" come forma di governo e in particolare di quella Veneta, considerata la perfetta incarnazione storica del'ordinamento ideale. ?Della perfettione [è] un'opera che assume le sembianze di un articolatissimo dialogo a più voci ambientato all'inizio dell'estate del 1563 a Trento... I principali obiettivi di questo scritto parutiano, che offre un suggestivo quadro dell'ambiente culturale veneziano del tempo, consistono nella giustificazione morale dell'impegno civile, così da restituirgli quella dignità e quel valore che sembra avere in parte smarrito nel corso dei decenni precedenti, e nella raffigurazione di un modello ideale di uomo politico. In Della perfettione, la vita attiva e l'impegno civico paiono a tratti occupare un ruolo d'importanza pari ?" o, talvolta, anche superiore ?" a quello della religione, nonostante le ripetute dichiarazioni di fedeltà alla Chiesa...? (Venturelli). Gamba 1561: "Originale e bella edizione". Bozza, Scrittori Politici, p. 54. Ferrari, Corso sugli scrittori politici, lez. XIX. Adams P - 360. P. Venturelli, "Mito di Venezia e governo misto in Della perfettione della vita politica di Paolo Paruta", 1961, Società Italiana di filosofia politica.

        ODYSSEA [and other works]

      Venice: [Melchiorre Sessa, 1540?]. n. This is a convincing 19th century forgery of a celebrated type of Renaissance binding, used here to cover a rare edition of a translation of the "Odyssey" by Andreas Divus. The story behind the very intriguing binding begins about 1545, when a library of approximately 200 books came into the possession of a Genoese youth of noble birth named Giovanni Battista Grimaldi (ca. 1524 - ca. 1612), apparently a student at the Roman Accademia della Virtù. Each of these volumes was bound in goatskin to a certain design, the key feature of which was an oval plaquette showing Apollo and Pegasus (both associated with swift flight) at the middle of each cover, with a Greek motto ("Straight and not crooked") in gilt in a collar around the vignette. Produced by three eminent masters, these bindings had long been famous and their provenance much debated before G. D. Hobson identified their original owner in his authoritative "Apollo and Pegasus," published in 1975, so it is not surprising that attempts would be made to cash in on their celebrity. During the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, at least two binders are known to have produced fraudulent replicas of the much sought-after Apollo and Pegasus bindings. The first of these binders--and the one almost certainly at work here--was Vittorio Villa (d. 1892) of Bologna and Milan, who typically started with plain or sparsely decorated 16th century bindings, which he then tooled more elaborately and to which he added the Apollo and Pegasus medallion. These expert forgeries are considered appealing alternatives to original examples of Apollo and Pegasus bindings not just because the latter now fetch extravagant prices, but also because the former are desirable curiosities as fakes and because, as binding specimens, they are fine pieces of work typically done for books with inherent value. Hobson in his "Maioli, Canevari and Others," examines in considerable detail the criteria for determining those Apollo and Pegasus forgeries that he says are anything but obvious fakes. According to Hobson, the present example would not be genuine because the wheels of Apollo's chariot have four spokes, and in the genuine article, they have six. Still, when compared to other fraudulent Apollo and Pegasus bindings, this volume would arouse little suspicion, especially because of the wear to the covers--which can only be genuine--and because of the modern repairs, apparently made at the time the leather was decorated. The volume looks absolutely authentic, a dignified Renaissance survival with the usual signs of age and restoration that today nearly always characterize the state of early books, even those that might have led privileged lives in the libraries of careful owners. In addition to our Divus translation of the "Odyssey" (first published in Venice in 1537 by Jacob de Burgofrancho), our volume contains Latin translations of several shorter works falsely ascribed to Homer. Identifying our edition positively is difficult: the only edition of Homer in Latin issued by Sessa that we have been able to locate was printed ca. 1540, but we know our Homer was printed by Sessa because of his distinctive cat-and-mouse printer's device. It had to have appeared before 1555, when the printer died.. 165 x 108 mm. (6 1/2 x 4 1/4"). 238, [2] leaves. Contemporary olive brown calf over pasteboard, ends of spine repaired (probably late in the 19th century), gilt covers framed with two sets of double rules, outer panel with broad foliate curl cornerpieces and sidepieces with trefoil of three rings between each, inner panel with 19th century decoration, including blind-stamped horizontal oval centerpiece of Apollo and Pegasus, the gilt collar with Greek motto touching rules at sides, large foliate sprays at head and foot curling to left and right and rising to a fleuron tool at ends, raised bands, spine panelled in gilt featuring broad rules and fleuron centerpiece, brown morocco label. Woodcut historiated initials, and charming cat-and-mouse printer's device. Leaves at front and back with various marks of ownership, including the signature of Francesco Suave at head of title page, and "proprieta di Carlo Balzi, 1884," on verso of first blank. Contemporary marginal annotations in Latin and Greek. STC Italian, p. 331. Joints partly cracked (and wormed in two places), corners somewhat worn, some scuffing to the leather, but the binding completely solid, the gilt still distinct, the plaquettes (not surprisingly) bright, and the volume altogether pleasing even with its defects. Final leaf cropped at fore edge (with loss of the first [verso] or last [recto] letter on two-thirds of the lines), upper corner of two gatherings with small, faint dampstain, one minor paper flaw costing a half dozen letters, otherwise unusually well preserved internally, THE TEXT EXCEPTIONALLY BRIGHT, FRESH, AND CLEAN. This is a convincing 19th century forgery of a celebrated type of Renaissance binding, used here to cover a rare edition of a translation of the "Odyssey" by Andreas Divus. The story behind the very intriguing binding begins about 1545, when a library of approximately 200 books came into the possession of a Genoese youth of noble birth named Giovanni Battista Grimaldi (ca. 1524 - ca. 1612), apparently a student at the Roman Accademia della Virtù.

        L'amor costante. Comedia del S. Stordito Intronato, composta per la venuta dell'Imperatore in Siena l'anno del XXXVI.

      Nella qual comedia intervengono varij abbattimenti di diverse sorte d'armi et intrcciati, ogni cosa in tempi e misure di Morescha, cosa non manco nuova che bella. S.l. né d. (Venezia, Andrea Arrivabene, 1540 ca.), - in-8, ff. 78, (1 bianco presente, manca altro f. bianco), leg. p. perg. antica flessibile, in astuccio m. pelle e ang. con tit. e filetti oro al dorso. Dedica dello stampatore A. Arrivabene a Giovanni Soranzo datata 15 novembre 1540. Il nome dell'autore viene citato nella dedica ed in fine al volumetto. Prima edizione, estremamente rara, di questa commedia in cinque atti in prosa, con prologo, ambientata nella città di Pisa. Rappresentata per la prima volta a Siena nel 1536, alla presenza dell'imperatore Carlo V, la commedia mette sul palcoscenico ben ventisette personaggi che parlano italiano, spagnolo, dialetto napoletano e ''uno scolare tedesco esprimentesi in un italiano barbaro con qualche mistura della sua lingua nativa'' (Sanesi pp. 334-6); la trama, assai complessa, prevede il lieto fine per i due protagonisti, Ferrante e Ginevra: la pozione che erano stati costretti a bere non era veleno, bensì bevanda innocua, così i due ''potranno godere del loro costante amore'' (Sanesi). La commedia, al pari delle altre due del Piccolomini (L'Alessandro e L'Hortensio), ebbe grande successo ed un numero straordinario di edizioni. L'autore (Siena 1508 - 1579) fu intellettuale di cultura vastissima: letterato, filosofo, astronomo; tra i fondatori della celebre Accademia senese degli Intronati, col nome di Stordito, insegnò filosofia morale a Padova e poi a Roma; nel 1574 ottenne il titolo di Arcivescovo di Patrasso. Ottimo esempl., puro e genuino. Ediz. mancante a Regenstein. Clubb 689. Allacci 55. Soleinne 4585: «Edition très rare». Salvioli 209. BMC 513. Adams P-1100. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Sorti. Intitolate Giardino dei pensieri.

      Venezia, Marcolini, 1540, - in-folio (305x205 mm), ff. 104 (A-Z4, AA-CC4), bella legatura del XVII secolo in marocchino granata, triplice filettatura in oro ai piatti con terminazioni angolari vegetali, dorso a sei nervi con titolo in lungo nei compartimenti riquadrati da filetti in oro. Precede l'opera dedica a Ercole d'Este, duca di Ferrara (p. III) e proemio esplicativo ai lettori (pp. IV-V). Titolo, ad opera di Francesco Salviati, inciso da Marco Dente, raffigurante un gruppo di uomini e donne intenti a discorrere e a consultare il libro del Marcolini nel "Giardino di pensieri"; Cervolini (Marcolini, p. 20) e Mauroner (Incisione di Tiziano, 42) attribuiscono però l'ideazione del disegno del frontespizio a Tiziano. Al verso del titolo ritratto dell'autore a piena pagina racchiuso entro cornice architettonica sorretta da due cariatidi (la stessa usata dal Marcolini nei volumi del Serlio e dell'Aretino, impressi qualche anno prima). Alle pp. VI-VII elenco dei 50 quesiti che si possono rivolgere al libro (suddivisi tra uomini, donne e per uomini e donne) e rimando alle 50 tavole relative. La prima sezione del libro contiene 50 silografie poste nella parte superiore del recto di ogni foglio raffiguranti immagini simboliche, vizi e virtù, accompagnate da 90 carte da gioco che circondano l'incisione e da altre 45 carte disposte nel verso della carta a fronte disposte a forma di croce. In base al responso delle carte il giocatore deve andare a consultare una delle cinquanta sezioni dei filosofi: nel margine superiore sinistro di ogni doppia pagina compere una silografia con un filosofo dell'antichità accompagnato da 31 risposte collocate sulla sinistra e da altre 24 sulla destra. Le risposte ai quesiti sono poste in forma di terzine scritte da Ludovico Dolce. Ogni terzina ha al fianco una coppia di carte da gioco; al verso dell'ultima carta impresa tipografica del Marcolini inserita in un elaborato cartiglio con volute, intorno al quale si intrecciano un ramo d'ulivo ed uno di quercia. Prima edizione in perfetto esemplare di uno dei più famosi giochi di fortuna del Cinquecento, realizzato su imitazione dei giochi di Lorenzo Spirito e Sigismondo Fanti. Rispetto alla precedente tradizione di genere il Marcolini imposta la doppia pagina di stampa su un registro parallelo, iconografico e verbale; la struttura tradizionale del libro è inoltre ripensata, sovvertendo la tradizionale recto verso di ogni carta e immaginando per la prima volta un intero volume da leggere a doppia pagina, tenuto insieme da un complicato sistema di rimandi interni che il giocatore apprende alle pagine iniziali. Gli strumenti del gioco diventano il libro stesso e un mazzo di carte, che dovrà gestire il giocatore a cui capita la carta più alta del mazzo. L'opera si configura come un inesauribile repertorio di modelli e situazioni figurative; è ipotizzabile che la l'impressione avvenisse in stadi diversi: stampando prima la cornice esterna quindi le immagini interne e per ultimo il testo, seguendo il modello consueto per la stampa di edizioni musicali (il Marcolini d'altronde si era formato presso il Petrucci, come incisore di testi musicali). Magnifico esempio di libro che diventa oggetto, da leggere, da vedere e da maneggiare. Mortimer 279. Sander 4231. Brunet iii, 1407-1408, Suppl. I, 941. Essling II, 670. Cicognara 1701: ?rarissimo a trovarsi di bella conservazione? Rosenthal, 1385. L. Nardin, Carte da gioco e letteratura fra Quattrocento e Ottocento, Lucca 1997. Cinti 54. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Das Gebetbuch Heinrichs VIII aus der British Library.

      - Der junge Heinrich wurde dank seines großzügigen Engagements und seines ungewöhnlichen Kunstverständnisses zu einem der wichtigsten Mäzene seiner Zeit, sein Hof war der prächtigste von ganz Europa. Er war der erste Renaissanceherrscher Englands und brachte viel Interesse für die Künste mit, sprach diverse Sprachen, machte aus seinem Hof ein künstlerisches Zentrum. Sein privates Gebetbuch, ihm vom französischen Buchmaler Jean Mallard im Jahr 1540 übergeben, verzaubert Fachwelt und Publikum bis heute gleichermaßen. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt hatte der König sich bereits zum Oberhaupt der englischen Kirche erhoben und war von Fettleibigkeit und Krankheit geplagt. Immer wieder versenkte sich Heinrich in die Lektüre des Psalters und versah die Schrift mit rund 100 eigenen Anmerkungen - eine überaus kostbare Quelle, um dem spirituellen Seelenzustand des Königs während seiner 10 letzen Lebensjahre näher zu kommen und seine Gedankenwelt zu entschlüsseln. Jetzt, über 500 Jahre nach seiner Entstehung, wurde das kultur- wie kunsthistorisch kostbare Stück erstmalig faksimiliert - das Ergebnis ist überwältigend: Der lateinische Text ist in einem eleganten humanistischen Ton verfasst, der sich auch heute noch gut lesen lässt. Das Buch ist mit sieben erlesenen Miniaturen und Hunderten von prächtig Illuminationen und Verzierungen wie Vögel, Tiere, Blumen und Pflanzen geschmückt. Sensationell sind natürlich Henrys Randnotizen in Bleistift und roter Tinte - sie sind im zugehörigen Kommentarband in das heutige Englisch übersetzt. Der Psalter ist in einem sehr guten Erhaltungszustand, sodass die Faksimilierung den dem Original inne wohnenden privaten Charakter und auch die bestechende Opulenz der Illumination vorzüglich transportiert. Kommentar von James P. Carley. 12,7 x 20,3 cm, 360 illuminierte Seiten, originalgetreuer dunkelroter Samteinband mit Messingschließen, Goldschnitt, in archivbeständiger Schmuckkassette. Limitierte Auflage (980 Expl.)

Sturm, Villon, n°30 ; Tchemerzine, IV, 491 et V, 978 ; Brunet, V, 1249 ; MAROT, Clément (1496-1544). Seconde édition originale augmentée des « Cantiques de la Paix » par Clément Marot extraite de ses œuvres imprimées par Jehan Bignon à Paris, en 1540. « Très rare édition » (Tchémerzine). L’édition originale des Cantiques de la Paix parut l’année précédente, en 1539, chez Estienne Roffet ; composée de seulement 10 feuillets, elle est, selon Tchémerzine, rarissime. « Le seul exemplaire cité, dit-il, est à la Bibliothèque Nationale ». La présente seconde édition augmentée compte 56 pages. « Au début de l’année 1540 paraissent ses spirituelles « Estreines aux dames de la cour » et, chez Roffet, ses « Cantiques de la Paix », opuscule dans lequel il a regroupé des poèmes célébrant sur un mode lyrique des événements politiques importants. Plus que jamais se découvre la dimension engagée de sa poésies, la détermination qui est la sienne, par tous les moyens possibles, de servir la cause de Dieu et celle de la paix. Plus que jamais, le poète de Dieu fait concurrence en lui au poète du roi » (Gérard Defaux). VILLON, François (1431-1463). Précieuse et belle édition des œuvres de François Villon imprimées à Paris par Fr. Regnault en 1540. Elle est si rare que Tchémerzine et Brunet ni citent qu’un seul exemplaire, celui du Duc de La Vallière, en donnant une fausse collation. Ils mentionnent 55 feuillets alors qu’en réalité cette édition compte 8 et 55 feuillets. C’est à la demande de François Ier que Clément Marot entreprit de rendre justice à l’œuvre majeure de François Villon, pour lui restituer son ordre et sa saveur d’origine. ENTREPRENANT AINSI UNE RELECTURE DES VERS DE VILLON, MAROT COMPOSE LA TRAME DE L’EDITION ORDONNEE QUI SERVIT DE MODELE A L’EDITION DE 1540. L’édition de 1540 rendait accessible l’œuvre capitale et si poignante du premier des grands poètes français modernes. « Villon est le premier poète à la moderne : le premier où l’on reconnaisse l’âme du poète étonnant, tel que la France l’a conçu, tel que Paris l’a créé, tel qu’il est resté, et tel qu’il devait être depuis maître François Les émotions de Villon sont violentes et profondes » (André Suarès).

        Prediche del reverendo padre frate Gieronimo Savonarola de l'ordine di San Domenico dell'osserva[n]tia di toscana sopra l'Esodo ... con tre prediche sopra la historia di Gedeone, nuovamente aggiunte a questo volume.

      In Venetia: [colophon: Stampate in Venetia da Giouanantonio de Volpini detto il Rizo stampadore 8vo (15 cm; 6"). [8], 307, [1] ff. (the last blank).. 1540 Collection of 22 sermons on the Exodus, in Italian, delivered by the rebellious Dominican priest Girolamo Savonarola (1452–98) starting on 11 February 1498 at the Florentine church Santa Maria del Fiore and concluding at San Marco on 18 March. These were => the first sermons preached by him after and despite his excommunication by papal brief (13 May 1497) and they were => the last series he preached before his execution at the stake (23 May 1498). They were collected for publication by Lorenzo Violi, who heard at least a few of the series in person, "dalla viva voce" (f. *7). In the second sermon (ff. 16v–30), Savonarola => rails against his own excommunication, and calls false the very briefs meant to silence him, reproaching the Pope specifically. The tense political atmosphere in Florence after Savonarola's death prevented Violi from publishing the collection for nearly a decade (although he did issue five of the sermons individually while Savonarola was still alive). This, the fourth edition, was edited by Giovanni Brasavola, and dedicated to the Duke of Ferrara and Queen Isabella of Aragon. The text is in Italian with scriptural references in Latin, printed in roman character in single-column format, occasionally narrowing on the page into center-justified conclusions; the volume's good sprinkling of historiated and decorated woodcut initials are more than usually lively, and the woodcut on the title-page fittingly shows Savonarola preaching to a large crowd with one listener writing — being the same woodcut used by B. & O. Scoto in 1539, their device appearing here in the center of the pulpit. Marks of readership: Occasional marginal annotations and some underlining in early ink. 20th-century binding with yapp edges using an 18th-century piece of vellum from an antiphonal (age-toned and lightly rubbed); marginal notes often shaved, sense however generally intact; lacks final blank (only). Occasional slim, short instances of worming, good repairs at one corner of title-page (affecting one letter) and same to following two leaves; one other leaf neatly repaired at gutter; a very few spots and rather neat inkblots. Very good+.

        COMMENTARIUS DE ANIMA

      Petrus Seitz, Wittenberg 1540 - (8), 247, (1=blank) ll. Only the leaves numbered on recto, as usual in the time. *8 A-Z8 a-h8. BOUND WITH I. MELANTH(ON), Philip. De officio principum, quod mandatum Dei praecipiat eis tollere abusus ecclesiasticos. [Wittemberg: Joseph Klug, 1539]. A-C8, leaves unnumbered. BOUND WITH II Epistola de miseria, curatorum seu plebanorum, aeditus anno, 1489. Cum praefatione D. Mart. Luth. Wittemberg: [Nicolaus Schirlentz], 1540. A-B8, leaves unnumbered, last leave blank and possibly from different paper. BOUND WITH III: MELANCH(TON), Philip. De ecclesiae autoritate, de veterum scriptis libellus. Wittemberg: [Joseph Klug], 1539. A-I8, leaves unnumbered, last leave blank. 4 works in one volume, 8° (145 x 94mm). Titles within varying woodcut borders, a few woodcut initials, library stamp removed from title of first work, brown oilstain in lower fore-corners of last few leaves, a little very minor discolouration). Contemporary German blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, roll-border round sides enclosing 2 full-length portraits, that on the lower cover with initials HI, metal clasps (a little rubbed). First Wittemberg editions and perhaps the first edition of Melancthon's De anima (other editions appeared in the same year in Strassburg and Paris), one of the most popular of his non-controversial works and important for being one of the first books in which the mind, or spirit, is deemed worthy of scientific study. It is interesting to note that it was Melancthon who coined the word 'psychologia'. This work, however, is not just about the mind, but deals generally with human physiology, the senses, the humours and various abstract ideas, immortality, free will, the intellect, etc. The other two works by Melancthon concern abuses by the clergy. The anonymous Epistola de miseria curatorum warns young would-be clerics of the hardships and miseries of an ecclesiastical life. Provenance: Gabel Schäub (contemporary signature on an endpaper and marginalia in the first work); marginalia in two or three other hands in the same work, contemporary to mid-17th century. Of this 1st edition of Commentarius de Anima about 10 copies in KvK. 1 in NCC (Utrecht), 2 in COPAC (BL and Glasgow). 4 additional copies in US libraries (OCLC). Hartfelder 292.

        Des. Erasmi Rot. Operum septimus tomus Paraphrases In universum Novum Testamentum continens

      Ex officina Frobeniana, Basileae 1540 - Folio, pp. [12], 854, [2]; 4- to 10-line woodcut initials throughout; 18th century full paneled calf, rebacked in brown calf with maroon morocco label on spine; corners worn and showing, endpapers renewed, small library rubberstamp at base of title, verso of b3, and recto of d4; occasional neat annotations and underlines in a 16th-century hand, ownership signatures on title page of Thomas Durham of Edinburgh (1811), and Marcus Dods (1856), and on the verso of the title page a presentation from Durham "with best regards" to a name which has been effaced; a very good, sound, and complete copy of the seventh volume of Erasmus's collected works. The complete included nine volumes, published 1539-40. "Erasmus was not content with the simple, more or less factual annotation of the New Testament, but went on to paraphrase, which enabled him to soar high and dig deeper. His paraphrases had the advantage of being a relatively new form when they were written, and they were so-well liked and became so popular that edition after edition was called for during his lifetime and after his death" (Houghton Library, Erasmus on the 500th Anniversary of his Birth, 1969).

Als Weihbischof von Bamberg bemühte er sich um die Erneuerung des katholischen Glaubenslebens und um die Durchführung der tridentinischen Reformbeschlüsse. Deshalb geriet er wiederholt mit dem Domkapitel in Konflikt, das ihm sogar die Pfarrei Sankt Martin in Bamberg, deren Erträgnisse einen wesentlichen Teil des weihbischöflichen Gehaltes ausmachten, entzogen wissen wollte. Feucht setzte sich durch Wort und Schrift für die Verteidigung der alten Lehre ein und nahm wiederholt auch in der Diözese Halberstadt Pontifikalfunktionen vor. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rationale Divinorum Officiorum

      Lyon: Nicolaum Petit, 1540 A scarce edition, edited by Bonetto de' Locatelli, of what is arguably the most important medieval treatise on the symbolism of church architecture and rituals of worship, written by the French bishop William Durand of Mende (1230-1296). First published in 1459 by Gutenberg's partners, Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer, this was one of the most frequently copies and disseminated texts in medieval Christianity, and many editions appeared in the fifteenth and sixteenth century. The present edition is rare: OCLC notes copies at the University of Florida, Massachusetts Center for Renaissance Studies, Washington State University, and the United Library in Illinois only. Contemporary limp vellum with title in manuscript on spine, suede ties. Quarto. Title within an elaborate woodcut architectural border, printed in black and red, woodcut printer's device on verso of last leaf. Decorative woodcut initials. Free endpapers lacking, twentieth-century ownership annotation on front pastedown. A very good, clean copy. Its eight books contain a detailed account of the laws, ceremonies, customs, and mystical interpretation of the Roman Rite. Book I treats of [religious art and architecture:] the church, altar, pictures, bells, churchyard, etc.; II of the ministers; III of vestments; IV of the Mass; V of the canonical hours; VI of the Proprium Temporis; VII of the Proprium Sanctorum; and VIII of the astronomical calendar, manner of finding Easter, Epacts, etc. [The] Rationale is the most complete medieval treatise of its kind; it is still the standard authority for the ritual of the thirteenth century and for the symbolism of rites and vestments" (Catholic Encyclopedia).

      Venice, (Pietro di Nicolini da Sabbio), 1540.. 8vo. (12), 200 ff. Title with architectural woodcut border. 17th century vellulm with ms. title to spine.. An early merchants' guide to the measurements of the Mediterranean and Near East, this pocketbook for sixteenth-century Italian traders is one of the foremost sources for the study of the metrologies of Venice and her trading partners in the early sixteenth century. It enabled conversion between Venetian currency, weights and measures and units of other Italian city-states, European neighbours and more exotic locations in the Levant, North Africa, the Near and Middle East, including Constantinople, Aleppo, Tripoli, Damascus, Cyprus, Corfu, Rhodes, and Crete. Pasi's manual is invaluable as a record of the panoply of commodities traded in the Mediterranean at the start of the sixteenth century, including pearls, silks, wool, saffron, chestnuts, figs, galangal, vegetable oils, gold and silver. On fols. 3, 11, and 12, Pasi recorded the tariffs on pearls in Damascus, Aleppo, Cairo, Alexandria, Constantinople and Venice. Most likely the famous merchant Balbi carried a copy of this classic on his travels. - First printed in Venice in 1503, and again in 1521, this 1540 edition appears to be the third and was followed by another in 1557. - Some brownstaining to preliminary matter; a few contemporary ink marginalia slightly trimmed in the course of the 17th-century rebinding. On the whole an excellent clean copy. Very rare: the only copy of any edition to surface at auction within the last thirty years appears to be the Honeyman copy of the 1503 edition. - Kress 51.

        New Griechenland so ieczunt Türctei ist. "New Griechen land mit andern anstossenden Landern wie es zu unsern zeiten beschriben ist

      Greece: Basle Petri, Heinrich. c1544-72. Woodcut map of Greece after Ptolomaeus from Sebastien Munster's "Cosmographia". Modern hand colour; German title panel on verso is surrounded by an engraved city view [uncoloured]. The map first appeared in the 1540 Basle edition of Ptolomaeus edited by Munster. It is extremely difficult to identify from which edition of the "Cosmographia" the map is taken; Petri published 27 editions with German text.between 1544-1572 . Dark impression; some soiling to blank margins; 2 short tears to lower margin repaired with archival tape to verso. Sebastian Münster 1488 ?" 1552 was a German cartographer, cosmographer. He released a Mappa Europae (map of Europe) in 1536. In 1537 he published a Hebrew Gospel of Matthew which he had obtained from Spanish Jews he had converted. In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias. His Cosmographia of 1544 was the earliest German description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and even Czech. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years.[6] This success was due to the fascinating woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch, and David Kandel). It was most important in reviving geography in 16th century Europe. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. Zacharakis:2438. Greece Continental Greece

Deze Souter Liedekens zijn verzameld en samengesteld door Jonkheer Willem van Zuylen van Nyevelt, Heer van Berg-ambacht. Hij is de eerste geweest, die Davids psalmen in Nederlandse rijm heeft gezet, op de wijs van bekende, meest wereldse liederen. Deze werden, zelfs tijdens de hevigste vervolgingen in Nederland, gretig door het volk gezocht, gebruikt en gezongen. De afname was zo groot, dat in hetzelfde jaar (1540) niet minder dan zes verschillende drukken bij dezelfde uitgever werden gepubliceerd. In deze uitgave staan 165 psalmberijmingen waarin 154 met eenstemmige muzieknotatie. De tekst is gedrukt in zwart en rood, de titelpagina is versierd met een houtgravure met de voorstelling van koning David spelend op zijn harp.) 352 (of 368) p. 17th century Leather with 5 raised bands and decorated gilt spine, gilt-edged 8° (lacks gathering L, the titlepage and the last page ar slightly browned, the last page lacks a window of 1,3 x 4 cm.

These were, even during the most severe persecutions in The Netherlands, eagerly sought, used, and sung by the people. The demand was zo large that 6 different editions were published by the same editor in the same year (1540). In this edition are 165 psalmes set to rhyme, from which 154 in music notation with one accord . The text is printed in black and red, the titlpage is decorated with a woodcut engraving depicting king David playing his harp.) Scheurleer, D.F. (1977). De Souterliedekens.
