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.

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. Example from the Latin ed. of Geographia, publisd in 1545. This map differs from … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 auf 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 Verfasserschaft 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]

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.

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 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.

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’.

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]

ex officina Antonii Putelleti, 1540. Folio piccolo; carte 70 con errori nella numerazione ed una grande tavola silografica a quadruplo foglio più volte ripiegata, raffigurante il teatro romano; ritratto dell'autore al verso del frontespizio, 29 grandi silografie perlopiù a piena o doppia pagina. Legatura in mezza pelle ottocentesca con filettini dorati. Rara edizione originale di una delle prime opere di architettura relativa alle antichità di una città minore. Le illustrazioni sono di Giovanni Caroto, pittore veronese e raffigurano archi e antichità romane, fra l'anfiteatro ed il teatro. Esemplare nel complesso discretamente conservato e completo della grande tavola, quasi sempre mancante: l'opera è difficilmente in condizioni perfette. Presenta numerosi piccoli difetti, generalmente un po' vissuto, con alone d'umido, qualche carta un po' rifilata, alcuni piccoli restauri di vario genere, rilegato con utilizzo anche di materiale antico di provenienza liturgica al marg. int., qualche mancanza, evidente alla grande tavola ripiegata, restauro al dorso. Adams S-393; Cicognara 4089; Lozzi II-6323; Fowler 289.

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.
