Giulio BONASONE
Bulino, circa 1540, privo della firma. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Esemplare nel primo stato di due. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non meglio identificata, rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. In passato l’opera era erroneamente assegnata a Giovanni Battista Scultori; tuttavia non ci sono dubbi sull’attribuzione del foglio al Bonasone, che sulla base di elementi stilistici risulta prodotta verso la fine del quarto decennio del’500. L’episodio è tratto dal testo di Esiodo; Giove viene nutrito dalla capra Amaltea con l’aiuto di Melissa e di un pastore, mentre una ninfa raccoglie il latte in una scodella. Due timbri di collezione al verso sconosciuti al Lugt. Bibliografia: Bartsch 107; Massari 115 I/II. Dimensioni 423x274. Engraving, 1540 approx, without signature. After a subject by Giulio Romano. Example in the first state of two. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with unknown watermark, trimmed to platemark, in excellent condition. In the past this work has been erroneously ascribed to Giovanni Battista Scultori; however there are no doubts nowadays that is Bonasone’s work and, according to some stylistic elements, it has been realized at the end of 1540s. This episode is taken from a work by Esiodo; Jupiter is breast-fed by the goat Amaltea, helped by Melissa and a shepherd, while a nymph collects the milk in a bowl. Two unknown collection stamps on verso. Bibliography: Bartsch 107; Massari 115 I/II 423 274mm

Diana SCULTORI
Bulino,1535 -1540 circa, in basso a destra il nome dell’inventor: Iulius Mantuanus inve. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana non identificabile, applicata su antico supporto settecentesco di collezione, rifilata ai margini, lieve e uniforme brunitura, pieghe di carta, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione, la cui autenticità è messa in dubbio da Mariette e Bellini, viene comunemente ritenuta copia in controparte della Resurrezione di Giovanni Battista Scultori. Tuttavia, come osserva Massari, lo stile grafico e le differenze tra le due incisioni fanno escludere tale derivazione. La composizione è da mettere in relazione con il disegno di Giulio Romano proveniente dalla collezione Ellesmere, oggi a Berlino (Staatliche Museum, Z 26368). In particolare, strette analogie si riscontrano nella posizione del soldato che si copre il capo con la mano e il soldato con lo scudo. Il disegno viene datato, su considerazioni stilistiche, tra 1530-31. Esiste anche un altro disegno dello stesso soggetto eseguito da Giulio, in relazione con gli Arazzi della Scuola Nuova che mostra nelle figure dei soldati alcune analogie stilistiche con le stesse figure dell’incisione in esame (Louvre, Cabinrt des Dessins, inv. 3468) Engraving, 1535 – 40 circa, inscribed lower right: "Iulius Mantuanus inv." Good example, printed on contemporary laid paper, with unreadeable watermark, laid down on old paper, light browning, some traces of paper fold, generally in good condition. The engraving, whose authenticity is questioned by Mariette and Bellini, is commonly c … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne: Petrus Quentel. See pictures. Rebound in a handsome classical style (hints of Cambridge). A few shelf wear marks and a bump at bottom corner of front board (light). New pastedown/flyleaf, with a number of pencil bookseller marks on the pastedown. Toning to the text block, more near ends. Title page has a repair at the bottom (V shape tear repaired with similar paper pasted to the rear (v shape paper was preserved). Some soiling and thumbing to title page. Moisture mark at bottom gutter which occasionally reaches up into the text, but is also sometimes not existing. Occasional spots and thumbing. A5 verso and A6 recto, Psellus de Septem Sacris Synodis Graecorum, annotated in an old hand. Last page has tiny ex-libris stamp at bottom of page, near gutter. A handsome book, that looks great on the shelf. You'll enjoy finding the wonderful, widely revered, and ancient Apostle's Creed recited in this 1540 work documenting the ancient Nicaean Council (year - 787 A.D., although here wrongly called 781). This Concilium Nicenum recounts the findings of the second Nicene Council (translated from ancient documents by Gybertus Longoliuis), which are contentious; the second council decided that iconoclasts (those that avoided and destroyed religious imagery) were in the wrong, and there was cause for icons in the church. A summary, found near the beginning of the work, is heavily annotated and underlined, in an old hand, demonstrating the passion with which this topic was being discussed during the reformation when this edition was printed.

PARUTA PAOLO.
1540. 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 religi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basilea, 1540. ESEMPLARE CON COLORITURA COEVA. Questa meravigliosa mappa dell'Italia, del Mare Adriatico e dei Balcani è stata pubblicata per la prima volta nella Geograhia Universalis di Munster, nel 1540. La mappa è presentata con un bordo trapezoidale e include un testo latino al verso incorniciato da un bel cartiglio. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione latina della Geographia, stampata a Basilea nel 1545. Questa mappa si differenzia da altre dello stesso titolo in quanto una piccola freccia accanto al titolo punta a destra piuttosto che a sinistra, come nella maggior parte delle mappe dell'Europa di Munster. Sono indicate le principali città, con rappresentazioni architettoniche in miniatura per rappresentarle, oltre a sistemi fluviali e isole. La mappa si estende a nord fino alle Alpi e a sud fino alla Sicilia, in cui è rappresentato il vulcano Etna. Due riquadri in latino forniscono ulteriori informazioni. Xilografia, bellissima coloritura coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. ORIGINAL COLOURING This marvelous woodcut map of Italy, the Adriatic Sea and the Balkans appeared in Munster’s Geograhia Universalis which was first published in 1540. The map is presented in a trapezoidal border. The woodcut border surrounding the text on the verso is thought to be the work of Hans Holbein. Munster’s maps represent new and important works based on Ptolemy, this one with Latin text on the verso framed by a lovely decorative cartouche featuring kings, popes and saints along with mythical allegorical.

Emrich, Franz?].
(Wien, Johann Singriener d. Ä.), 1540. (36) SS. Moderner marmorierter Pappband. 4to. Sehr seltene Abhandlung: Zuschrift des Dekans und der Fakultät an den Wiener Magistrat: Sie hätten aus Befehl der Regierung wegen der Pest, "so unns diß jars durch die Astrologey angezaigt", die Apotheken visitiert und stellten nun hier ihr Gutachten. Anschließend wird "von dem Wesen der Pest, ihren Ursachen, worunter Finsternissen und Kometen nicht vergessen sind, ihren Präservativ- und Curativmitteln gehandelt, und geschlossen" (Denis). Als Verfasser kommen in Frage Crato von Krafftheim (1519-85) und Franz Emrich (1496-1560). Crato hatte gegen die Pest das "Electuarium salutis Cratonis" entwickelt, eine sehr geschätzte Mischung aus Theriak, Mithridat, Terra sigillata, Bolus armenus, Bezoar und anderen Gegenmitteln. Dass in der vorliegenden Schrift vom "Thyriackh" abgeraten wird (Bl. E2v), spricht eher für die Verfasserschafts Emrichs: Dieser war nach der Universitätsreform 1537 der führende Mann bei der Einführung der hippokratisch-galenischen Richtung der Medizin (unter gleichzeitiger Ablehnung der bisher favorisierten arabischen Autoritäten). Er "vertrat als erster in Wien die neue Richtung einer diätetischen, hippokratischen Medizin" (Schönbauer 74). Das Kapitel über "Speyß und Trannckh" beginnt denn auch mit einer Lobpreisung Galens. Emrich verfasste unter Nennung seines Namens 1554 einen "Ratschlag zu Verhüetung pestilentzischer Ansuechung".- Etwas gebräunt bzw. fingerfleckig; teils knapp beschnitten. VD 16, ZV 28156.

MUNSTER, Sebastian.
Basle: Henri Petri, 1540, FIRST EDITION, Latin text. Woodcut, sheet 300 x 375mm. Small repair in centre fold margin. Munster's map of modern Asia, published in the first edition of his ''Geographia universalis, vetus et nozva, complectens Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini enarrationis libros VIII''. Much of the information for this map came from Portuguese sources, indicated by the presence of their Indian colonies Cambay, Goa, Calicut and Kannur. However further east Munster has had to return to Marco Polo's account, written in prison in 1298, for China and the 'Archipelago of 7448 Islands', the Philippines. Ptolemy's 'Taprobana' is now Sumatra rather than Sri Lanka. At the bottom of the map Zanzibar is an island south-east of Madagascar. Decorating the seas is a huge fish and a twin-tailed mermaid.

Cerchia di Hans Sebal BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
Bulino, 1540 circa, monogrammato in lastra. Copia in controparte dell'incisione di Beham. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1540 circa, signed on plate. Anon copy after Beham. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebal … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giorgio GHISI detto "Il Mantovano"
Bulino, 1540 circa, firmato in basso a sinistra 'J.B.Mantuanus inv' e nel margine bianco inferiore 'Georgius Mant f'. Da un soggetto di Giovani Battista Scultori. Esemplare nel secondo stato di cinque, con l’indirizzo di Antonio Lafrery aggiunto in basso a destra. Splendido esemplare, ricco di toni e ben contrastato, impresso su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con stella e lettera M", rifilato alla linea marginale, traccia di piega centrale al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Come afferma Bellini (1998, pp. 52-54 n. 8) questa stampa è stata a lungo creduta opera di G.B. Scultori, forse perchè la firma del Ghisi, nascosta nell'ombra, risulta poco visibile, ma anche per la vicinanza allo stile proprio di quell'artista. Invece lo Scultori è solo l'inventore della composizione, che presenta anche soluzioni tratte da G. Romano. Vari elementi quali la complessità della composizione, le dimensioni notevoli della lastra, lo stile più maturo ed attento al disegno e alla costruzione prospettica inducono a datare quest'opera agli ultimi anni del periodo mantovano o al periodo romano. Ghisi ha realizzato due incisioni che derivano da due disegni sulla guerra di Troia di Giovan Battista Scultori: quella qui presentata e La caduta di Troia e la fuga di Enea (V, 8.94). Questa stampa mostra il greco Sinone in ginocchio mentre i Troiani spingono all’interno della città il cavallo di legno, nel cui ventre cavo erano nascosti i più forti dei guerrieri greci. Il personaggio di Sinone non è menzionato da Omero, ma appare nei poemi epici più tardi, in particolare ne … [Click Below for Full Description]

PICCOLOMINI Alessandro
Arrivabene Andrea. 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.

BASIL THE GREAT
Basle, ex officina Hervagiana, 1540. Folio. Two works in one, (xl) 581 (i) + 438. Roman letter, occasional Greek. Printer’s device to t-p and last, decorated initials. Light age yellowing to a few ll., slight foxing, centre of t-p expertly restored, blank except for printer’s device, probably either supplied or in facsimile. An excellent copy, crisp, clean and wide-margined, in contemporary (possibly Swiss) polished calf, lacking clasps, fore-edge painted in black-brown ink with author and title within fine architectural cartouche with foliage and masques. Richly blind-tooled to a double-ruled panel design, first border with two rolls of urns and fleurons, second and third with phoenixes, interlacing cranes and male heads in roundels, central panel with stamped mosaic-style mozarabic corner and centre pieces. Spine in six compartments, raised bands, later repairs to head and foot. Early red ‘P’ stamp and casemark to upper margin of t-p, a few early marginalia and small drawings. The handsome binding with phoenixes and interlaced cranes, the detail of which remains very crisp, reprises early C16 exemplars produced in Lyon (e.g., BL, C66g11). They were based on a t-p produced by the Flemish artist Guillaume II Leroy for the Lyonnaise printer-bookseller Simon Vincent. As proved by a copy of Paulus Venetus’s ‘Summa philosophiae naturalis’ (Lyon, Antoine Du Ry for Simon Vincent, 1525)—present in our web catalogue— where the t-p and matching binding appear together, the latter was probably Vincent’s ‘marque de libraire’. In 1561, Antoine II Vincent (1500-68), one of Simon’s grand … [Click Below for Full Description]

This edition not in Kress (1533 only). No edition in Goldsmith.£2,750The Venetian arithmetician Pietro Borgo's commercial arithmetic. First published in Venice in 1484 it was the second commercial arithmetic published in Italy and more than any other book it set a standard for the arithmetics of the 16th century and had a far greater influence on education and none of the early textbooks deserve more careful study. All early editions are rare. The text of this 1540 and all early editions are substantially the same as the first edition of 1484. "Borgo first treats of notation carrying his numbers as high as 'numero de million de million', and making no mention whatever of the Roman numerals. In the same spirit he eliminates all of the medieval theory of numbers, asserting that he does this because he is preparing a practical book for the use of merchants... … [Click Below for Full Description]
