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.

Colas 475; Hollstein IV, A. de Bruyn 248-306 "4th" ed.; Vinet 2087; cf. Lipperheide Aa 18. Two beautiful and complementary 16th-century series of costume prints by the engraver Abraham de Bruyn (1540-1587), together showing over 450 different costumes, both first published in 1581. The first print series starts with the rich and elaborate costumes of the Emperor and Kings of the Holy Roman Empire, followed by the costumes of the Electors. Military costumes are also shown with twelve or more to one plate. The European costumes come from Antwerp, Brabant, Spain, England, France, Italy including Venice, Rome and Naples, and elsewhere. The more exotic costumes come from Turkey, the Arabic lands, Persia, Africa, Tartary and America. The second series starts with the Pope, cardinals and bishops, and continues with male and female members of various religious orders.With bookplate. The 3 preliminary leaves and plate 1 of part 1 have been cut down and mounted on backing leaves and show a few repaired tears, but both series are further in very good condition, with only an occasional minor stain, smudge or marginal tear. Several leaves are bound out of sequence.

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]

(1540-50 circa). in-8 piccolo, ff. (60), caratt. tondo, pagina di titolo in rosso e nero, grande scena mitologica con Piramo e Pisbe in silografia sullo stesso foglio. Artistica legatura ottocentesca in piena pelle marrone scuro, decorata a secco da filetti e bordure floreali sui piatti, dorso a nervi con fregi a secco e titolo oro, tagli dor. Rara edizione della prima metà XVI secolo, arricchita della bella incisione in legno, di queste rime amorose e versi occasionali assai eleganti, che risentono dell'ispirazione petrarchesca. Alcune edizioni videro la luce a Milano e Venezia a partire dal 1525, tutte assai rare. La lingua italiana dei versi di Camilla appare in questa edizione influenzata dal dialetto veneziano. L'autore nacque a Sassoferrato nel 1486 (m. 1539), appartenne all'Ordine dei minori conventuali, e scrisse versi d'amore per "ricreare la mente offuscata dagli studi filosofici". Risulta dai suoi scritti che da più parti gli fosse rimproverata la sconvenienza delle sue poesie e della sua condotta. La sua figura, che per un lato rappresenta un caso limite nella crisi attraversata dagli Ordini religiosi nella prima metà del Cinquecento, occupa un posto di primo piano nella storia della poesia popolare; fu pure un madrigalista assai noto.

Abu Bakr al-Hasan ibn al-Hasib al Harasi (Albubater).
Nuremberg, Johann Petreius, 1540. 4to. (148) pp. With a small floral vignette on the title-page and two woodcut initials. 18th century full vellum with gilt title label on spine. First edition under this title, and the definitive edition of the Renaissance. Al-Hasan is "often quoted in astrological works of the Christian middle ages under the name Albubather. He flourished about the middle of the third century A.H., for Ahmad b. Abi Tahir Taifur (died 280 = 893) mentions him in his Kitab Baghdad as a contemporary" (Suter). Notable is the scholar-printer responsible for the work: Johannes Petraeus was soon to cement his historical reputation by printing Copernicus's "De Revolutionibus" (1543). In the present work, Petraeus offers his own justification for printing the work of Al-Hasan alongside such luminaries, for "true majestic Astronomy is on a higher level than the things intelligible to students. However this should not dissuade them from its handmaiden, Astrology, as its fruits and rewards are adjudged to be pure, and itself offering many advantages" (preface to the reader). Astronomy was properly regarded as being essential for deriving accurate figures needed for the sciences of Astrology and Prognostication; a heavily annotated copy of this edition of Al-Hasan is known from Tycho Brahe’s library (cf. Prandtl, Die Bibliothek des Tycho Brahe), and Robert Westman has argued that Copernicus not only embraced astrology but sought to defend it in his "De Revolutionibus" ("Copernicus and the Astrologers", Dibner Library Lecture, 2013). - The important 9th century astrologe … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vroman, Adam Clark
(20.4 cm x 15 cm). Photograph by Adam Clark Vroman Thunder Mountain Looking across the Zuni village toward The Mesa of Tâaaiyalana or Thunder Mountain, to which the Zuni retreated after attack on by Coronado in 1540. Vroman ca.1898. Photographed at direction of Anthropologist Frederick W. Hodge. Between 1895 and 1904, Adam Clark Vroman photographed the landscape and native peoples of the American Southwest. He photographed the Hopis, Zunis, and Pueblos, among other tribes. His portraits of Native Americans humanize, rather than romanticize, his subjects. The process he used most frequently was the platinotype or platinum print, known for its non-reflective surface, rich detail, broad tonal range and permanence. The platinum process was widely used in the United States and Europe from 1880 through the 1930s, when the cost of platinum became prohibitive and the silver-based processes gained prominence. Vroman moved to Pasadena, California in 1892. He soon opened a book, stationery, and photo-supply shop there in November of 1894. He traveled through southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico on seven separate trips from 1895 to 1904 to document the area's landscape, Indians, and Indian communities. Vroman was employed as a photographer by the Bureau of American Ethnology, (a research unit of the Smithsonian Institution) for two separate trips to the Southwest, the former involving a climb to the Enchanted Mesa in central New Mexico to prove the existence of Indian habitation and the latter a documentation of Southwestern pueblos and cliff dwellings.

Inside gilt dentelles. Spine divided in five gilt compartments. Title to spine. A very fine, clean and crisp copy in excellent state. A.e.g. Known as Prose della Volgar Lingua (“Discussions of the Vernacular Language”), this is the second edition of one of the most-renowned work devoted to the Italian language. It first appeared in 1525. This linguistic guide has been fundamental to the establishment of a common Italian language based on the Tuscan vernacular. Great humanist and undoubtedly skilled man of letters, Pietro Bembo (1470–1547) was a Cardinal and today he is considered one of the noble fathers of modern Italian. “In the Prose, Bembo codified Italian orthography and grammar, essential for the establishment of a standard language, and recommended 14th-century Tuscan as the model for Italian literary language. His view, opposed by those who wanted Latin and by others who wanted a more modern Italian as the model, had triumphed by the end of the 16th century.” Encyclodaedia Britannica Adams, I, 109.

Al-Razi, Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Zakariyya (Rhazes) / Arcolano, Giovanni (ed.).
Basel, Heinrich Petri, 1540. Folio (225 x 331 mm). (12), 747, (1) pp. With 2 (repeated) woodcut printer's devices to title page and final page as well as a half-page woodcut of surgical instruments at the end of the preliminaries. Modern blindstamped brown calf on four raised double bands. Rare edition of this commentary on the ninth book of the treatise dedicated by ar-Razi (also known as Rhazes; 850-923 or 932) to Almansor, the Prince of Chorosan (with the text). "The manual, known as 'Nonus Almansoris', was popular among mediaeval physicians" (cf. GAL S I, p. 419). The work discusses special pathology but excluding pyrology and was one of the most popular textbooks at medical schools and faculties well into the Middle Ages (cf. Hirsch/H. I, 171). Rhazes is considered the greatest mediaeval physician next to Avicenna; he also conducted alchemical experiments. According to his biographer al-Gildaki, he was blinded for refusing to share his secrets of chemistry. - A woodcut on the final page of the preliminaries depicts ten different surgical instruments, including a tongue depressor, a forceps, and various instruments for cauterization. Several minor waterstains throughout, but generally a fine copy. Provenance: Handwritten ownership of the Jesuit College of Louvain, dated 1637, on the title page. VD 16, A 3222. Durling 249. Cf. Garrison/M. 3666.84; Poletti, p. 11; Wellcome I, 383; M. H. Fikri, Treasures from The Arab Scientific Legacy in Europe (Qatar 2009) no. 46, with double-page spread illustration on p. 82f.

MACHIAVELLI Niccolò
Woodcut dolphin and anchor device on title page and verso of final leaf. 3-5 line initial spaces, all with guide letters. Italic type. 8vo (152 x 90mm). [3], 84, [1]ff. Ruled in red ink. 19th century quarter-calf over marbled boards, spine gilt in compartments with label in second, and title lettered in gilt (marbled paper torn and scuffed, wear to corners and edges, joints starting). First Aldine edition of one of the most important texts of political theory ever written. Frequently described as the first work of realpolitik, Machiavelli's The Prince offers a manual of principles for the effective acquisition and retention of power over different sorts of states - from hereditary principalities to conquered nations - and the qualities that a Prince should develop and use in order to rule successfully. It was the first to remove discussion of politics from the rhetorical and theoretical, and instead to root it in the simple recognition of the role of man, and human nature, at the heart of the political system. As a result, it is as much a detailed picture of the political realities of late fifteenth- and early sixteenth-century Florence as it is an instructive text. Its legacy cannot be overstated: the influence of Machiavelli has been identified in Shakespeare's history plays; The Prince was found in the libraries of Adam Smith and Malthus; it was described by Bertrand Russell as 'a handbook for gangsters', and by Mussolini as a 'vade mecum for statesmen'. The Aldine press published Dell'Arte della Guerra, the Discorsi, and the Historie in the same year as the Principe, 15 … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUTTEN, Ulrich von
4 p.l. (4th leaf a blank), 58 leaves. 4to, 17th cent. calf (neatly rebacked & recornered), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. London: T. Berthelet, 1540. An early Tudor translation of an important early medical work on the curative properties of the American wood known as "guaiacum," a text first published in Latin in 1519 as De Guaiaci Medicina et Morbo Gallico by the German scholar, poet and reformation thinker Ulrich von Hutten (1488-1523). Hutten's treatise, which was quickly translated into several languages, popularized the use of guaiacum to treat several conditions, especially the scourge of syphilis, and accelerated the importation of this medicinal agent from the Caribbean. Indeed, the work likely convinced the Fugger banking family of Augsburg to seek a monopoly on the import of the drug from the Americas, a concession they later secured from the Spanish crown in exchange for a loan. In this work, Hutten gives a full account of the appearance of syphilis in Europe along with its various treatments. Hutten also recounts in detail his own struggle with the affliction (at one point, a friend counsels him to commit suicide) and the various therapeutic (and sometimes gruesome) regimens to which he was subjected, making the treatise one of the earliest patient narratives published. "This tract had enormous resonance in 16th-century medical circles…Hutten was the first significant publicist for the Guaiac treatment… Hutten's descriptions of the therapy are the most accurate of the period, and the account of the qualities of Guaia … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pasi, Bartolomeo di.
Venice, (Pietro di Nicolini da Sabbio), 1540. 8vo. (12), 200 ff. Title with architectural woodcut border. 17th century vellum 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 beginning 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. It is very likely that the famous merchant Balbi carried a copy of this classic with him 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.

CAVICEO, Jacomo
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's French translation of Caviceo's 'Libro del Peregrino', first published in the author'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's shade who praises the book's dedicatee, Lucrezia Borgia; unsurprisingly the Peregino is full of echoes of Boccaccio's writings, and is also imbued with the atmosphere of the Ferrarese court of Ercole I d'Este which Caviceo knew well. He appears also to have used Colonna'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 o … [Click Below for Full Description]
