OLYMPO da SASSOFERRATO Baldassarre
Nella quale vi sono Mattinate, Stramboti, Capitoli, Madrigali, Canzoni, Epistole, Sonetti, Barcelette. Agiontovi di novo un Capitolo de Patiencia. (In fine:) In Venetia, per Alessandro de Viano, s.d. (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. (Esemplare con strappo restaurato nel margine esterno del foglio di titolo). Sander, n.5146. BMSTC 474. Manca a varie bibliografie. … [Click Below for Full Description]

HEYNLIN DE LAPIDE, Johannes.
Ad 1: VD16, H 3454 (7 copies); Proctor 10484; ad 2: VD 16, A 4321 (7 copies); not in Proctor; for the binder: Haebler I, pp. 39-41 & II, p. 303. Two rare early 16th-century Cologne imprints in a slightly later binding by the Breslau binder "HB", dated 1540. The first work is a popular manual on the rites of the Roman Catholic mass by Johannes Heynlin de Lapide (ca. 1425-1496) and the second work contains sermons by Augustinus of Leonissa (fl. 1435). The binder, only known by his monogram "HB", is a Breslau binder active from 1525 to 1540, who is known to have made bindings for Johann Hess (1490-1547), Protestant reformer of Breslau, and for the humanist and diplomat Heinrich Ribisch, syndic of the city of Breslau and correspondent of Melanchthon. The present binding has two figurative rolls: the first showing the crucifixion, instruments of the Passion, and the resurrection of Christ, with the HB monogram (167 x 15 mm; could be similar to Haebler roll no. 6, but instead of the Man of Sorrows, it shows the Instruments of the Passion); and the second showing the four Evangelists with the HB monogram above the head of St. Matthew and the date at the top of the image of St. Marc (175 x 17 mm; Haebler roll no. 2).With old owner's inscription on paste-down, owner's inscription struck through on title-page and several contemporary manuscript owner's inscriptions throughout, a few shaved by the binder, showing that they predate the 1540 binding. A good copy, with the blank lower half of the title-page cut off, some occasional browning and a few smudges. Binding lacking two of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

René BOYVIN (Angers 1525 ca. - Roma 1580 ca.)
Bulino, circa 1540-45, privo di dati editoriali. Da un soggetto di Rosso Fiorentino. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. La scena raffigura le tre Parche: a destra, Lachesi, tiene in mano la conocchia e fila il destino della vita umana;a sinistra, Cloto presa di schiena ne misura la lunghezza; nel mezzo, Atropo strappa il vilo, determinando il momento irrevocabile della morte. Anche se questa incisione non reca il nome di Rosso Fiorentino, la sua paternità della composizione non è mai stata messa in discussione. Dumesnil, ascrive l'incisione a Renè Boyvin, perché la figura di Cloto visto di schiena, trova precise corrispondenze con la figura femminile della "Caritas Romana", a lui attribuita. Secondo documenti pubblicati da Metman, le Tre Parche sarebbero state incise da Pierre Milan, intorno al 1545. Milan potrebbe aver lavorato direttamente da un disegno di Rosso, o su una copia del disegno di Rosso realizzata ad hoc, come modello per l'incisore, come nel caso della "Danza delle Driadi". Van Mander sembra aver identificato le tre figure femminili come le Tre Grazie, poiché, contrariamente all'iconografia tradizionale, le Parche appaiono giovani e nude, esili ed aggraziate. Anche altri dettagli ed attributi possono riferirsi ad un ambito diverso da quello consueto delle Parche. Il turbante di Atropo le conferisce un aspetto sibillino; Cloto siede precariamente su un cesto di fiori, suggerendo Flora o la primavera o semplicemente l'abbondanza e la freschezza, Lachesi indossa una corona, e il suo sedile ass … [Click Below for Full Description]

Heinrich ALDEGREVER
1540 - Bulino, 1540. 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, rifilata al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1540. 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 Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest.

BOUCHET (Jean)]
Paris, Maurice de la Porte, 1540. 1 vol. petit in-folio, maroquin havane, dos lisse avec titre doré, encadrement d'un double filet à froid sur les plats, roulette à froid intérieure. Reliure moderne, qq. petites épidermures. Titre en rouge et noir orné d'une lettre historiée, impression en caractères gothiques, lettres blanches historiées et sur fond criblé, (10) ff., ccj ff., (1) f. blanc. Signatures : at6 et4 [A-X]6 [AA-MM]6 NN4. Quelques ff. intervertis au cahier EE. Exemplaire lavé. Dernière édition gothique du plus célèbre ouvrage de Jean Bouchet. Malgré le titre, ces annales couvrent un domaine bien plus vaste que les limites de l'Aquitaine et sont plutôt une sorte de chronique mêlée d'anecdotes sur l'Europe entière. Très discutables quant à la méthodologie historique et la véracité des sources citées, les Annales sont, malgré leurs défauts, un ouvrage de grand intérêt : "Il [Bouchet] nous présente d'ailleurs quelques faits fort bien débrouillés, des anecdotes historiques très intéressantes, et qu'on ignorerait absolument sans lui, des réflexions judicieuses" (Dreux-Duradier). On y trouve notamment des souvenirs personnels concernant Jeanne d'Arc racontés d'après ce qu'on lui en avait dit dans sa jeunesse. La première édition avait été imprimée à Poitiers en 1524 et réimprimée plusieurs fois depuis avec des augmentations de l'auteur. Cette nouvelle édition a été faite sur l'édition parisienne de 1537 à laquelle on a ajouté des compléments pour la pousser jusqu'en 1540. Mais elle a été faite sans le consentement de Bouchet (qui s'en plaignit par la suite) et les ajouts … [Click Below for Full Description]

He issued his first famous Cosmographia in1544 with 24 double paged maps with German description of the world.It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts ,some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe.His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). 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. Claudius Ptolemy (arround 100- 160 a.C.)

BUCHANAN, George
1546 GREEK Comedies of Aristophanes Ancient Theatre Athens Philosophy Wechel “Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, ignorance can be educated, and drunkenness sobered, but stupid lasts forever." Aristophanes Aristophanes was an ancient Athenian Greek playwright, remembered for his comedy plays and examples of drama known as Old Comedy. Writing during the 4th-century BC, Aristophanes was lesser-known than other Greek philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. Aristophanes’ plays were written for festivals in Athens and the Theatre of Dionysus. This exceedingly rare 16th-century edition was printed entirely in Greek by Christian Wechel. Wechel’s Paris editions are considered some of the most correct and are known for their beauty. This printing is fitted with the Wechel printer’s emblem on the title page.

S.n.t. (Modena 1540?). In - 4°; 4 cc., 131 cc. (assente l'ultima bianca, errori di numerazione); titolo e 84 illustrazioni incisi in legno (53 a piena pagina) nel testo; legatura settecentesca in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli rossi. Rinforzi ai margini del titolo; il margine bianco delle cc. 126 e di 3 cc. finali sapientemente restaurato. Antiche note manoscritte e didascalie poste in calce alle illustrazioni con riferimenti a personaggi della tradizione cavalleresca. Seconda edizione del più importante trattato italiano di scherma del Cinquecento, e primo vero trattato sistematico e completo di scherma moderna, la cui fortuna è testimoniata dalle molte edizioni che si susseguirono nel corso del secolo. L'edizione veneziana del 1517, citata da alcune bibliografie come prima, è in realtà ormai riconosciuta come una ristampa del Sessa della fine del '500. Le 84 xilografie, in questa edizione "più fresche" che nella prima (Modena 1536), per il resto identica (cfr. Gelli), rappresentano schermidori nelle diverse figure e posizioni e sono state attribuite a Francesco Barattini o a Giovanni Britto (il monogramma "b" è ben visibile su alcune di esse). Di particolare interesse il frontespizio, con l'elaborata bordura che incornicia il titolo, composta da una struttura architettonica in cui compaiono figure in armatura. Achille Marozzo (1484 - 1553) è considerato uno dei più importanti maestri della "Scuola bolognese" ed è riconosciuto come il "padre della scherma europea" (Sticca).

[Bible] [Estienne, Robert]
First illustrated edition of the remarkable Estienne Bible, a monumental and beautiful printing, here in a spectacular copy with all the woodcuts, capital letters, and printer´s devices coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. Estienne´s illustrated Bible, besides being a very significant edition of the Vulgate, possibly one of the most beautiful Bibles printed in the 16th century, a fact that is singularly important to this copy, which presents the unique feature that all 20 woodcuts (some almost full page), 77 capital letters, and the four large printer´s devices are finely coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. The illustration of this edition was highly praised, and of considerable influence for subsequently printed Bibles, such as Jean de Tourne´s Biblia Sacra (Lyon, 1556), Rouille´s Figures de la Bible (Lyon, 1564), and Buon´s Sainte Bible (Paris, 1586). This is the third folio Bible printed by Estienne, which represents a further revision along the same lines as his first critical edition of the Vulgate in 1528. 'The third Estienne folio Bible, for which the text was revised from additional MS sources; a list given at the end of the preface enumerates at least 16 MSS and 3 printed editions. This edition contains the first printing of the Prayer of Manasses, in Greek and Latin. It is the text of this monumental edition which became the foundation of the official Roman vulgate ...

[Bible] [Estienne, Robert]
First illustrated edition of the remarkable Estienne Bible, a monumental and beautiful printing, here in a spectacular copy with all the woodcuts, capital letters, and printer´s devices coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. Estienne´s illustrated Bible, besides being a very significant edition of the Vulgate, possibly one of the most beautiful Bibles printed in the 16th century, a fact that is singularly important to this copy, which presents the unique feature that all 20 woodcuts (some almost full page), 77 capital letters, and the four large printer´s devices are finely coloured by a contemporary hand, some heightened in gold. The illustration of this edition was highly praised, and of considerable influence for subsequently printed Bibles, such as Jean de Tourne´s Biblia Sacra (Lyon, 1556), Rouille´s Figures de la Bible (Lyon, 1564), and Buon´s Sainte Bible (Paris, 1586). This is the third folio Bible printed by Estienne, which represents a further revision along the same lines as his first critical edition of the Vulgate in 1528. 'The third Estienne folio Bible, for which the text was revised from additional MS sources; a list given at the end of the preface enumerates at least 16 MSS and 3 printed editions. This edition contains the first printing of the Prayer of Manasses, in Greek and Latin. It is the text of this monumental edition which became the foundation of the official Roman vulgate ... This is the only illustrated Bible issued by Robert Estienne, and the second of only five illustrated books which he produced' (Schrei … [Click Below for Full Description]

VIÈTE, François.
Cf. DSB XIV, pp. 18-25; M.J. Bradley, Pioneers in Mathematics: the age of genius, p. 16. Third edition of one of the first scientific works of the greatest French mathematician of the 16th century, François Viète (1540-1603). Viète graduated in 1560 from the University of Poitiers with a law degree. "In 1564, Viète accepted a position in the household of the prominent family of Jean de Parthenay and his wife, Antoinette d'Aubeterre. In fulfilment of his responsibilities as tutor for their daughter Catherine, he wrote a collection of essays on various scientific subjects.” (Bradley). The present compilation of three of these works first appeared posthumously in 1637, based on Viète's manuscript, under the title Principes de cosmographie ..., the three essays forming the three divisions of the book, on the geocentric universe, geography, and astronomy..It includes a section covering the geography of the Arabian peninsula (pp. 96-97), naming: Bahrain, Mecca, Aden, Ormuz etc.With owners' inscriptions (one dated 1657) and library stamps. Browned and with mostly marginal, water stains throughout. A reasonable copy. Binding still good.

HEYNLIN DE LAPIDE, Johannes.
Ad 1: VD16, H 3454 (7 copies); Proctor 10484; ad 2: VD 16, A 4321 (7 copies); not in Proctor; for the binder: Haebler I, pp. 39-41 & II, p. 303. Two rare early 16th-century Cologne imprints in a slightly later binding by the Breslau binder "HB", dated 1540. The first work is a popular manual on the rites of the Roman Catholic mass by Johannes Heynlin de Lapide (ca. 1425-1496) and the second work contains sermons by Augustinus of Leonissa (fl. 1435). The binder, only known by his monogram "HB", is a Breslau binder active from 1525 to 1540, who is known to have made bindings for Johann Hess (1490-1547), Protestant reformer of Breslau, and for the humanist and diplomat Heinrich Ribisch, syndic of the city of Breslau and correspondent of Melanchthon. The present binding has two figurative rolls: the first showing the crucifixion, instruments of the Passion, and the resurrection of Christ, with the HB monogram (167 x 15 mm; could be similar to Haebler roll no. 6, but instead of the Man of Sorrows, it shows the Instruments of the Passion); and the second showing the four Evangelists with the HB monogram above the head of St. Matthew and the date at the top of the image of St. Marc (175 x 17 mm; Haebler roll no. 2).With old owner's inscription on paste-down, owner's inscription struck through on title-page and several contemporary manuscript owner's inscriptions throughout, a few shaved by the binder, showing that they predate the 1540 binding. A good copy, with the blank lower half of the title-page cut off, some occasional browning and a few smudges. Binding lacking two of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

MANARDI (MANARDUS), Giovanni.
Durling 2915; USTC 604048 (2 copies); VD16 M473; cf. Bibl. Osleriana 3316. Very rare Isengrin edition of a selection of medical letters and a commentary on Mesue the younger (also known as Masawaih al-Mardini). "The letters illustrate in an interesting way -- and this is their value -- the transitions from Arabian to Greek dominion. The opinions of Avicenna, Hippocrates and Galen are quoted on every page" (Bibl. Osleriana).It is written by the Italian physician Giovanni Manardi, described on the title-page as: "omnium medicinae professorum per universam Italiam, in Galeni docttrina & Arabum censura celeberrimi, & optimèmeriti"(the most famous and worthy in this this day and age, of all the professors of medicine through the whole of Italy, in the judgment of Galen and the Arabians).Foxed throughout, but still a good copy.

Lugduni: apud Seb. Gryphium, 1540. Small 8vo, pp. 119, [5]; collating a-g8 h6; printer's woodcut device on title, woodcut initials; removed from binding, text block sound. Publius Rutilius Lupus was a Roman rhetorician who flourished during the reign of Tiberius (ca. 14-37 AD).

330 S., Lit.verz. Reg. / 318 Taf. mit 517 farb. Abb. 4 Ln.iS. Mit Band 6/2 schließt Ulrike Bauer-Eberhardt unmittelbar an Bd. 6/1 an und beschreibt jene 285 Handschriften der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek, die seit der Mitte des 14. Jhs. bis um 1540 mit italienischem Buchschmuck ausgestattet wurden. Dabei werden sowohl berühmte Stücke - z.B. die Handschriften für den ungarischen König Matthias Corvinus (sie zählen heute zum Weltkulturerbe) oder der prachtvolle Valturius mit kriegerischem Gerät für Papst Sixtus IV. - als auch weniger spektakuläre Originale ausführlich präsentiert. Nennenswert sind auch etliche Entdeckungen, die bisher von der Forschung mißachtet wurden- so ein Breviarium aus Ferrara mit Miniaturen des Taddeo Crivelli und des Franco dei Russi, das die Bayerische Staatsbibliothek erst in den 60er Jahren des 20. Jhs. angekauft hat. Ein Tafelband bietet zu jeder Handschrift mindestens eine Abbildung.
