        HENRICI CORNELII AGRIPPAE ab Nettesheym, DE INCERTITUDINE ET VANITATE SCIENTIARUM Declamatio invectiva, denuo ab autore recognita, & marginalibus annotationibus aucta. Capita tractandorum totius operis, sequentes indicant pagellae

      No place [probably Cologne] but no place given: No publisher [probably Eucharius Cervicornus] but not given, 1540 approx but no date given]. Hardcover. Good. Large woodcut portrait of Agrippa on the titlepage supposedly after Woensam of Worms. 142x95mm early 19th century boards with slightly damaged label (tips rubbed) All edges red, 200 unnumbered leaves (A+a-i+k-u+x-z+aa all in 8). The probable place [Cologne], publisher [Cervicornus] and approx date [1540] of this copy are derived by comparison of its title format, portrait & number of leaves with German library copies referenced in VD 16 A 1161. Manuscript note on the flyleaf by a 19th century Warsaw owner mistakenly dates the book to 1527. Several names written on titlepage, 2 of which are heavily crossed out with some bleed through to blank verso; some paper browning and some underlining increasing towards the end. Last two leaves damaged, one with silking to upper half, and final leaf (printed on one side only) repaired by mounting onto a newer leaf with 12 lines lacking a few letters each, which have been inked in. *A rare early edition of this important work which was placed on the Index of Prohibited books. In fact all Agrippa&#39;s books were controversial and brought him into conflict with both church and state. In 1531 Erasmus wrote that everyone was talking about Agrippa&#39;s new book De Incertitudine. Erasmus later had his servant read the book aloud to him as he rested after dinner, and in his last letter to Agrippa he said: "I liked the emotional force of your language and the richness of your material, and I do not understand why the monks are so offended. As you censure the bad ones, so you praise the good ones, but they only like to be praised" (see Marc van der Poel, Cornelius Agrippa the Humanist Theologian p118). In this work Agrippa succinctly deals with all forms of science then practised, extending to astrology, magic, the Cabala and other pseudo-scientific occult practices.

        Dialogue treselegant intitule le Peregrin, traictant de lhonneste et pudicq amour concilie par pure et sincere vertu

      Paris Jehan Petit 1540 - 8vo. ff (xii) 327, (lacks last, blank). Lettre Bâtard. Title in red and black, small woodcut white on black criblé initials, 3 charming woodcut illustrations introducing each book, bookplates of Camille Aboussouan, on pastedown and fly (the second engraved by Belmer). Title slightly dusty, mostly light age yellowing, cut a little close at head, a few headlines fractionally shaved. A very good, clean, copy in early 19th-century blue straight-grained morocco gilt, by C. Smith with his ticket on fly, covers gilt ruled to panel design, spine with gilt ruled raised bands, aeg. extremities slightly rubbed. Rare, beautifully printed and illustrated popular edition of Francois Dassi&#146;s French translation of Caviceo&#146;s &#145;Libro del Peregrino&#146;, first published in the author&#146;s native Parma in 1508, and remarkably popular, both in Italy and France, where it went through more than twenty editions during the following fifty years, though it has not been reprinted in its entirety since 1559, perhaps due to its robust attitude to physical love. Caviceo introduces his romance with the appearance of Boccaccio&#146;s shade who praises the book&#146;s dedicatee, Lucrezia Borgia; unsurprisingly the Peregino is full of echoes of Boccaccio&#146;s writings, and is also imbued with the atmosphere of the Ferrarese court of Ercole I d&#146;Este which Caviceo knew well. He appears also to have used Colonna&#146;s Hyperotomachia as a model, as the Peregrino similarly contains a multiplicity of digressions on a diverse range of subjects in a Latinate prose full of classical allusions. As the title suggests much of the romance is concerned with travel, based on the author&#146;s own experiences, including voyages to the middle east, Mount Sinai and Cyprus. These adventures often serve as a pretext for a display of humanist erudition, courtly speeches, with disquisitions on natural philosophy and neo-platonic theories of love. A good deal of the work is comic, sometimes unsubtle, as in the episode when Peregrino steals, via a sewer, into what he believes is his ladies chamber only to discover, at a critical moment, that he entered a neighboring house and is in the wrong bed. All these disparate elements are woven into the story of Peregrino, an ardent lover, who after many trials on behalf of his love Ginevra, eventually wins her hand, only to witness her death shortly after the birth of her first child. The story is innovative firstly in its narrative technique, the entire story is told by the hero&#146;s shade and is in the first person, (much of the book is composed of dialogue) and secondly in its inclusion of a host of famous contemporaries in his fictional narrative, some recently dead, but most still living at publication. It is therefore quite surprising that the work was so popular in France where few of this gallery of local figures would have been known to its readers. The book was translated into French by Francois Dassi, a lawyer and secretary to Henri d&#146;Albert king of Navarre. The first French edition appeared in 1527, at a time when there was considerable interest in France for all things Italian. Dassi made no attempt to modify the passages of the original which deal with specifically Italian figures, and his translation is complete and faithful. Like the Fairfax Murray copy, this copy lacks the final leaf, 'probably blank'. This Paris edition appears to have been shared by many printers, P. Sargent (BL copy), F. Gilbert (Fairfax Murray copy), A. Lotrian (BNF copy) as well as Jean Petit, all of which are extremely rare; we have not found a copy of the Petit imprint recorded online. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Winckelige-wyzer, van de sonnevolgen, of leeringe van de uytwerckinge des derden deels der sterrekunst van alderley sonnevolgen.Amsterdam, J. van Ravesteyn, 1670. 4to. With 84 mostly engraved mathematical figures in the text. Modern boards.

      Bierens de Haan 4267; Poggendorf II, col. 883; Sotheran, Second Suppl. 4207; Zinner, Astron. Instrumente, pp. 532-533. First Dutch translation of this rare and famous work on sundials by Bartholomäus Schultz (Görlitz 1540-1614), whose Latinised name is spelled both Schultetus and Scultetus. According to Sotheran, the work is especially interesting for Schultetus's transversal division on the circle, which was afterwards applied by Brahe on his quadrant. The first edition was illustrated with woodcuts and the present engraved vignettes must therefore have been made especially for the present Dutch edition. Some faint staining. A good copy.

      Bierens de Haan 837; DSB III, p. 181; Honeyman 662; STCN (5 copies, incl. 1 lacking title-page); Typ. Bat. 1064. The first edition of the principal work of the mathematician Ludolph van Ceulen (1540-1610), a pioneering work on the computation of pi to 20 decimal places. Van Ceulen's calculation was correct and with it he became the first to surpass the work carried out about two hundred years before by Al-Kashi (ca. 1380-1429), who computed pi to 9 sexagesimal places. By calculating the perimeter of a many-sided polygon enclosed by the circle and one enclosing the circle, he was able to establish upper and lower limits for the value of pi.The book is divided into 4 sections. "The first contains the computation of pi. The second shows how to compute the sides of regular polygons of any number of sides . . . The third section contains tables of sines up to a radius of 107 . . ., and the fourth has tables of interest. The first and second sections are the most original; they contain not only the best approximation of ð reached at that time but also show Van Ceulen to be as expert in trigonometry as his contemporary Viète'' (DSB). With a lengthy 19th-century manuscript note about the author on a flyleaf. Sewing supports broken at the inside front hinge.Water stains in the lower half of the tables in part 1 and of the first leaves in part 2, some marginal soiling, and a few small wormholes. Still generally in good condition. Pioneering mathematical work on the computation of pi.

"Large 8vo, pp. [6], 430, [22] leaves; woodcut printer&#39;s device on title page, text in double column; 17th-century full sprinkled calf, gilt spine in 6 compartments; extremities rubbed, small loss to spine head; contemporary ownership signature ""Claudius Monet"" on title page. Apparently the only known edition of this Greek-Latin lexicon, prepared by Gryphius, an active printer in Paris from 1532 to 1545, and brother to the prolific Lyonese printer Sebastian Gryphius. In his foreword to the reader, Franciscus states the reason that prompted him to issue the lexicon: the ever-growing interest for Greek textbooks, the failure of Parisian printers to meet this demand whilst German printers are producing texts that everyone can acquire indescriminately; these are the reasons that have led him to produce a lexicon specifically for the French market, which he claims to be by far more complete and correct than any of those that have until now been available. & & Among the preliminary texts is the tract on Greek numerals, ""De Graecorum notis arithmeticis compendium,"" by Adrien Amerot de Soissons; Philipp Melanchthon&#39;s tract on the Greek calendar; and relevent tracts by Macrobius and Pollux; also, in the appendix is a miscellaneous collection of treaties on special vocabularies and Greek dialects known as the ""Farrago Libellorum"". & & BMSTC French 210; not in Adams or Vancil.

Die kuriose juristische Schrift ("Der Wald der Ehe"), in der römischrechtliche, kirchenrechtliche wie auch praktisch-hygienische Aspekte der Ehe vermischt behandelt werden, brachte dem Verfasser den Ruf eines Frauenhassers ein. "[In this treatise, Nevizzano] discovered a fondness for publishing pleasant sayings, and an erudition seasoned with diverting and curious particulars. He intermixed it with a great number of satyrical touches against the fair sex. Some say that the women of Piedmont were offended at his satyr, and revenged themselves after a very cruel manner (the ladies of Turin finding the work in question to be a defamatory libel, the author of it [...] was immediately seized by them, and drove away with stones. He indeed obtained, some time after, leave to return from banishment, by the submission he paid, and falling down on his knees before them; the two Latin lines following being fixed on his forehead, as a manifest sign of his repentance: 'Rusticus est vere qui turpia dicit de muliere, / Nam scimus vere, quod omnes sumus de muliere'). He was never married, but he kept a mistress" (Bayle, ed. Bernard/Birch/Lockman, vol. VII [1738], p. 775f.). - Einband berieben. Gegen Ende geringe Wurmspuren.

"Lange Zeit galt Probst Konrad v. Lichtenau (gest. 1240, ADB XVI 642 - Jöcher I 2055, zu Conr. Ursp.) als der Verfasser der ganzen Chronik, bis sich spät. die Überzeugung Bahn brach, daß Konr. Vorgänger, Probst Burch. von Biberach (gest. 1226, ADB III 566/67 - DBE II 229) das Werk wenigstens bis zum Jahre 1226 verfaßt habe K. Hedio fügte der Chronik noch eine übersichtliche Darstellung der Geschichte von 1230-1537/38 hinzu" (WW aaO). Die Chronik-Herausgabe wurde veranlaßt v. Ph. Melanchthon (1497-1560), dessen Widm.brief an den Pfalzgrafen Philipp (1503-1548) - wohl der jüngere Bruder des späteren Kurfürsten Ottheinrich v. der Pfalz (1502-1559) - dem Werk vorausgeschickt ist. Dem eigenständigen opus Hedios geht ein Dankesbrief d. Druckers Crato Mylius an Melanchthon m. Dat. v. März 1538 voraus. Diese beiden Briefe u. die 'Paraleipomena' waren die Ursache, daß das Werk auf den Index kam. Auch deshalb heute selten und wegen der Briefe u. der vielen Medaillon-Porträts - als Arbeit Vogtherr sen. - sehr gefragt! - Fortsetzung:.

        Sylva Nuptialis, P[er] Exceltum Iurisco[n]sul d Jo de Nevizanis...

      1540. A Handsome Copy of a Controversial Essay Nevizzano, Giovanni [1490?-1540]. Sylva Nuptialis: P[er] Exceltum Iurisco[n]sul. D. Jo. de Nevizanis Asten[sis]; Co[n]structa, Materia[m] Matrimonij, Dotiu[m], Filiatio[n]is, Adulterij, Originis, Successio[n]is, [et] Monitorialiu[m]; Remedia Etia[m] ad Sedandu[m] Factiones de Guelphis et Giebellinis Co[m]plecte[n]s; Cu[m] Modo Iusia Principum Iudica[n]di [et] Exeque[n]di; Item de Autoritatib[us] Doctoru[m], Privilegijs[que] Miserabiliu[m] [Per]sonaru[m], Que sub Questione an Nubendum sit vel No[n] Sumpta Est. [Lyons: Jacques Giunta], 1540. [xvi], 256 ff. Octavo (6" x 4"). Recent blind-tooled calf in period style, raised bands and gilt title to spine. Title page printed in black and red with a woodcut architectural border, 20 woodcut initials decorated in contemporary gold, red and blue pigments. Moderate toning to text, faint dampstaining in places. Interesting contemporary marginalia and underlining to preliminaries and text, heavier on some pages than others, occasional loss to marginalia due to trimming. A handsome copy of an important work. * Fifth edition, the last in the author's lifetime. Nevizzano was a professor of law at the University of Turin and the author of several legal studies. His Sylva Nuptialis (1521) is a wide-ranging miscellany derived from Roman and Canon law that addresses judicial problems connected with virginity, marriage, sexual matters, domestic manners, morals and estates. His view of women in this work is notably satirical and sarcastic, which probably enhanced its popularity. In his opinion, women were enthusiastic and effective torturers of men. They were successful, he reasoned, because their bodies were created by Satan and inhabited by the souls of fallen angels. The author's misogyny, along with his relaxed views about fornication and concubinage, which he did not consider mortal sins, attracted the Church's attention. He was commanded to remove some of the more objectionable passages in subsequent editions, which he did. He did not go far enoug.
