PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius
1541.. Woodcut map. The “first map devoted to America to appear in an atlas” (Burden). The map is centred on the Atlantic Ocean, and shows the new discoveries in the Americas. North and South America are joined together as one landmass (according to Deák, it is the first map to do so). South America is populated by a group of cannibals and an opossum, albeit one made to look much more ferocious than in reality. The Spanish flag is shown planted in “Isabella Insul”, or Cuba, where Columbus had landed on his first expedition on behalf of the Spanish crown. Columbus is also mentioned by name in the large text in South America as the discoverer of the New World. This map first appeared in Martin Waldseemüller's 1513 edition of Ptolemy's ‘Geographia'. It was revised by Laurent Fries in 1522, who added the vignettes based on the voyages of Amerigo Vespucci, some nomenclature and further detail on Columbus' voyages in the scroll beneath Hispaniola. He also changed the inscription on America from ‘Terra Incognita' to ‘Terra Nova'. The verso text gives more details of Columbus' discoveries and concludes with a condemnation of the use of ‘America' as the European name for the new continent, arguing that Columbus was there first. In fact, Waldseemüller himself had popularised the name ‘America' through his world map, produced to accompany the ‘Cosmographia introductio', published in collaboration with Matthias Ringmann and Jean Basin de Sendacour in 1507. It contains the first printed instance of the name ‘America' being applied to the discoveries over the Atlantic: “The fourth … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius; Michael VILLANOVANUS, known as 'SERVETUS and Laurent FRIES
[Vienna and Lyon,: Gaspar Trechsel for Hugues de La Porte, 1541. [Vienna and Lyon,: Gaspar Trechsel for Hugues de La Porte,, 1541. 1541]. Double-page woodcut map. Titled 'Tabula terrae nouvae' above the accompanying text on the verso, this map is from the second edition of Ptolemy's 'Geographia' to be published with Pirkheimer's translation edited by Michael Villanovanus, better known as Servetus (1511-1553), born at Villanueva, in Aragon, Spain. A reduced version of Martin Waldseemuller's 'Tabula Terre Nove', this map of the New World shows the Atlantic coast of the Americas from latitudes 35 degrees south to 55 degrees north. While similarly including an apparent Gulf of Mexico, the Florida peninsula, Cuba as Isabella and Hispaniola, and across the Atlantic portions of the British Isles, Spain and Portugal and Africa, there are some notable differences: the Columbus name PARIAS found in North America, misplaced from South America, the addition of a Spanish flag over Cuba, and a scene in South America depicting cannibals and an opossum both of which had been reported by Vespucci, 'Terra Incognita' has been replaced by 'Terra Nova', and the reference to America's discovery by Columbus is repeated. A large area of text below Hispaniola contains a description of that island's location, its discovery by Columbus, and its products. (Burden) While working as an editor for the publisher Trechsel, Servetus wrote the preface and many of the modern descriptions for the versos of the maps in his atlas. For his writings against the Holy Trinity and infant baptism, Servetus was bur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage sur l'organisation politique de la Grèce antique de Guillaume Postel (1510-1581), philosophe, historien et mystique. "Ce livre constitue le premier ouvrage de réflexion de Guillaume Postel qui jusqu'ici avait publié trois ouvrages de 'linguistique' et un ouvrage de géographie. La dédicace à Guillaume Poyet, qui est Chancelier du royaume depuis 1538 lui permet de faire état de ses relations avec Guillaume Budé et Lazare de Baïf, de rappeler les vains efforts du Chancelier en faveur des salaires des professeurs du Collège des Trois-Langues ( ). Ce livre est le seul où Postel fasse état de son titre 'd'interprete' en mathématiques et langues étrangères." (Cl. Postel). Il fut réimprimé à Venise la même année et plusieurs fois par la suite. Le texte latin est parsemé d'expressions en grec et en hébreu. Annotations manuscrites de l'époque dans les marges. Traces de mouillures marginales aux premiers cahiers.

Galen
1541 Galenus, Claudius {Opera} Septima Classis. Title within pictorial woodcut border, beautiful woodcut initials and head-pieces. 285 leaves. Part 7 (only) of his works. Edited by Agostino Gadaldini. Venice: Lucaeantonij Iuntae Third Giunta edition of the writings of Galen in Latin translation, edited by Giovanni Battista da Monte. [This is the first edition to include contributions by Andreas Vesalius, who revised the translation of 3 anatomical tracts in Prima classis {not Septima Classis, part 7) dealing with the nervous and circulatory systems and anatomical procedures.] Galen was the greatest physician of ancient Rome. Whereas Hippocrates laid the foundation of Greek Medicine, Galen further developed its theory and practice, and carried Greco-Roman medicine to its zenith. Galen was a master of medical philosophy, and considered the study of philosophy to be essential to a physician's training. Philosophy enables the physician to discern between truth and illusion, or between reality and mere surface appearances, which is so important in diagnosis. It's also necessary for putting treatment on a sound ethical foundation. Although he wasn't a Christian, Galen was a monotheist and believed that the body was the physical vehicle for the indwelling soul. Galen's monotheism greatly enhanced the acceptance of his medical theories and teachings by later generations of Muslim and Christian scholars and physicians. Galen's chief contributions to the theory of Greek Medicine were his theories of the three varieties of pneuma, or vital energy, and the Four Faculties of the organis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Geber [JABIR ibn HAYYAN]
Johann Petreius, Nuremberg, 1541. Rare First Edition of this extremely important and early collection of alchemical writings. De Alchemia and the other works of the Geber corpus were of the greatest influence on Western chemistry, and “whether they be translations or elaborations, they represent the amount of Arabic chemical knowledge made available to Latin reading people toward the end of the thirteenth century they represent the best Latin knowledge on chemistry in that period.”–Sarton, II, p. 1044. The present collection contains four treatises by Geber/Jabir ibn Hayyan: 1. Summa perfectionis. 2. Liber de investigatione perfectionis (the earliest description of the preparation of nitric acid and aqua regia). 3. Liber de inventione veritatis sive perfectionis. 4. Liber fornacum (a practical text on chemical operations).This collection also contains the following texts of which at least four are printed for the first time: 5.

Petrarca Francesco (1304-74); [Petrarcha; Petrarch]
per Giouann' Antonio di Nicolini & fratelli da Sabbio, 1541. A very handsome early Venetian edition, the presumed second issue of the first Gesualdo edition originally published in 1533. Larg, thick 8vo (21x15.5 cm), very handsomely bound in antique full green morocco, the boards paneled with gilt rules and with large gilt tools at the corners, the spine with tall raised bands gilt stippled and double-ruled and gilt lettering in one compartment, wide turn-ins beautifully gilt rolled, 18th century marbled endpapers, edges speckled red. a1-c8, 384 ff., [4ff.], aa1-kk4 pp. A very handsome copy, very well preserved, clean and tight. A VERY FINE AND HANDSOME EARLY PRINTING OF PETRARCHA WITH GESUALDO'S POPULAR COMMENTARIES. The text as in the first issue is divided into two parts; the first being I Sonetti e le Canzoni, and the second being I Sonetti e le Canzoni... in Morte di Madonna Lavra. It is one of the best editions and was reprinted several more times later in the 16th century, but this printing is quite uncommon. It includes a 35 page 'Life of Petrarcha', with a six-page list of the passages from Petrarch's writings on which the biography is based. A useful index of Sonnets follows the second part. To this is attached the Triomphi Petrarcha colla spositione di Misser Giovanni Andrea Gesualdo da Traetto, which has its own engraved titlepage. Francesco Petrarca (1304-1374) was not only one the greatest Italian poets but also the first true reviver of learning in Medieval Europe. He was a great student of the classical works-- histories, poetry, law and orations, and he inc … [Click Below for Full Description]

LULL, RAIMUNDUS & ALBERTUS MAGNUS. - [THE CULMINATION OF LULLISM]
(Argentorati (Strassbourg) apud Balthassarum Beck), 1541. Small 8vo. Contemporary full calf binding with brass clasps. Professionally and neatly re-backed. Title-page a bit soiled and three very small holes to first leaf of text, otherwise internally very nice, clean and fresh. Early 20th century book-plate to front free end-paper (depicting Aristotle and Plato and with Greek writing). One full-page and 7 half-page woodcut illustrations in the text. (4), 183, (4 - Index) ff. ¶ The very rare first edition edition thus, being the first edition edited by the celebrated Strasbourg physician Walter Hermann Ryff (reprinted in Venice in 1542). The book contains two works: Lull's "De secretis naturae" and Albert the Great's "De mineralibus & rebus metallicus", which is among the authentic writings of the author; both works are of the utmost importance and greatly influenced Renaissance philosophy and science: Lull invented an "art of finding truth" (often in Lullism referred to as "The Art"), which centuries later stimulated Leibnitz' dream of a universal algebra. Lull applied this to basically all subjects studied at the Medieval Universities. "Lull's metaphysics worked a revolution in the history of philosophy" (The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy, p. 548). <br><br>"The production of pseudo-Lullian alchemical texts culminated at the end of the fourteenth century with an important work, the "Liber de secretis naturæ sive de quinta essential". At that time the formation of this corpus of texts entered a second stage. In the "Liber de secretis naturæ" the alchemical prac … [Click Below for Full Description]

Absent à la BNF et aux catalogues français ainsi qu'à la British Library. Un exemplaire à Manchester. Absent à Brunet et à Graesse. Selon Manchester, l'auteur véritable serait celui que l'on nomme le Pseudo Mesué, pour le distinguer de Jean Mesué. Pseudo Mesué serait un médecin arabe du XIIe qui aurait emprunté le nom de l'illustre médecin du IXe par souci de gloire et parce que ses recherches et travaux s'orientaient dans la même voie, l'utilisation des aliments ; c'est ainsi que Pseudo Mesué est aujourd'hui considéré comme le père de la confiserie moderne, car il employait le sucre à des fins thérapeutiques en utilisant certaines recettes anciennes, prises notamment chez Jean Mesué et les grands anciens. Edition à caractères gothiques imprimée sur deux colonnes. Nombreuses lettrines. Page de titre dans un encadrement (grande frise renaissance avec putti et rinceaux). Plein Velin d'époque rigide de réemploi teinté brun (écriture manuscrite visible sur les plats). Le dos à nerfs a été restauré au XIXe.

Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage sur l'organisation politique de la Grèce antique de Guillaume Postel (1510-1581), philosophe, historien et mystique. "Ce livre constitue le premier ouvrage de réflexion de Guillaume Postel qui jusqu'ici avait publié trois ouvrages de 'linguistique' et un ouvrage de géographie. La dédicace à Guillaume Poyet, qui est Chancelier du royaume depuis 1538 lui permet de faire état de ses relations avec Guillaume Budé et Lazare de Baïf, de rappeler les vains efforts du Chancelier en faveur des salaires des professeurs du Collège des Trois-Langues ( ). Ce livre est le seul où Postel fasse état de son titre 'd'interprete' en mathématiques et langues étrangères." (Cl. Postel). Il fut réimprimé à Venise la même année et plusieurs fois par la suite. Le texte latin est parsemé d'expressions en grec et en hébreu. Annotations manuscrites de l'époque dans les marges. Traces de mouillures marginales aux premiers cahiers. Inscription ancienne partiellement effacée sur la page de titre, avec un petit cachet ancien. Graesse, V, 424. Brunet, IV, 839. Caillet, III, 8901. Cl.

De Baif, Lazare
ex officina Roberti Stephani typographi regii (Parisiis: excudebat Rob. Stephanus Hebraicarum et Latinarum literarum typographus regius, 1541 Id. April.). 8vo (170x108 mm), modern printed paper binding; pp. 68, [12]. Woodcut mark on t.-p. This children's book deals with ancient Roman dress (from hats to shoes, incl. carpets, etc). It was edited by Charles Estienne (whose name is in the preface); at that time, he was tutor of J.A. de Baif, Lazare's son. Lazare de Baïf (1496-1547) was a French diplomat and humanist. His natural son, Jean-Antoine de Baïf, was born in Venice, while Lazare was French ambassador there. He published a translation of the Electra of Sophocles in 1537, and afterwards a version of the Hecuba. He was an elegant writer of Latin verse, and is commended by Joachim du Bellay as having introduced certain valuable words into the French language. Charles Estienne (1504-1564) was an early exponent of the science of anatomy in France. Charles was a younger brother of Robert Estienne I, the famous printer, and son to Henri, who Latinized the family name as Stephanus. He married Geneviève de Berly. After the usual humanistic training he studied medicine, and took his doctor's degree at Paris. He was for a time tutor to Jean-Antoine de Baïf, the future poet. References: IT\ICCU\BVEE\013094.

1541. Incisione in legno, con bella coloritura a mano di vecchia data, mm 330x440. Bella carta raffigurante la Sicilia, la Sardegna, la Corsica e tutto il Tirreno meridionale. Titolo entro cartiglio in alto. Fascinosa carta geografica tratta da "Geographicae enarrationes libri octo", opera curata da Servetus e stampata da Treschel. Claudio Tolomeo pubblicò la sua "Geografia" nel 150 d.C. ca. in greco; portata in Italia da Costantinopoli nel XIII secolo e tradotta in latino, assunse un'enorme importanza tanto da divenire base per tutta la cartografia medievale e rinascimentale. Dal 1477, anno dell'editio princeps, l'opera venne pubblicata in più edizioni, ogni volta con migliorie e aumenti dell'apparato iconografico. Bell'esemplare con piccoli difetti restaurati lungo la piega centrale; qualche piccolo restauro a minime mende marginali.Laurent Fries (Laurentius Frisius), viaggiò moltissimo, studiò fisica e matematica a Vienna, Padova, Montpellier e Colmar, prima di stabilirsi a Strasburgo. Qui, per la prima volta, si hanno sue notizie come disegnatore del mappamondo di Peter Apian, pubblicato nel 1520. La mappa di Apian si basava su quella di Waldseemuller del 1507 che, senza dubbio, stuzzicò l'interesse che Fries aveva relativamente agli "atlanti tolameici" del 1513 e 1520, e lo portò ad entrare in contatto con l'editore Johannes Gruninger.

Accurate Estienne edition of one of the masters of Latin comedy. A liberated slave of North African origins, Terence (c. 195/185-159 BC ) is the most prominent comic playwright of ancient Rome along with Plautus. Relying extensively on the plays of the New Greek Comedy and especially those of Menander, the six comedies written by Terence enjoyed long-lasting success, were copied in several manus cripts and thus exceptionally survived all together. For almost two millenniums throughout the Middle Ages and early modern times, they were employed as model of polished Latin in schools.

GESNER (Conrad)
Basileae, R. Wynter, Basileae, R. Wynter1541 ; in-12, demi-basane fauve à nerfs, plats en papier dominoté, coins en vélin, tranches jaspées. (Reliure du début XVIIIe siècle.) 4 ff. n. ch., 281 (1) pp., 7 ff. n. ch.ÉDITION ORIGINALE RARISSIME de ce célèbre manuel de botanique qui ouvre la voie à la classification moderne. L'ouvrage, que l'auteur voulait d'un format portatif afin d'en faire un livre pratique, offre aux étudiants une synthèse des meilleurs auteurs anciens augmentée des contributions des auteurs contemporains et de ses propres observations. Environs mille plantes y sont décrites par ordre alphabétique avec leur nom -de genre- souvent complété par un ou plusieurs adjectifs permettant d'en distinguer les espèces. Suit une description de la plante et de ses vertus médicinales. Les noms grecs et allemands sont notés dans les marges lorsqu'ils sont connus de l'auteur. Gesner adopte un système binominal emprunté à Théophraste qui permettra aux sciences naturelles de faire d'immenses progrès. Dans son introduction il dit en outre vouloir grouper les plantes en trois taxons qu'il nomme genres de premier, second et troisième ordre. Mais il fait aussitôt part des difficultés qu'il rencontre à grouper les plantes qu'il rencontre dans un système de classification encore trop imparfait, réservant son système de classification à une somme plus complète à laquelle il travaille. Il consacrera toute la fin de sa vie à rédiger cette flore monumentale à laquelle il travaillait lorsqu'il fut emporté par la peste en 1565. Elle ne sera publiée d'après ses notes que deux siècles plus … [Click Below for Full Description]

Listenius, Nicolaus.
1541. 8vo. (86) pp. With woodcut coat of arms (coloured in red and blue) on the title page; several initials and numerous musical notes in the text. Contemporary vellum. Early edition of one of the principal treatises of musical instruction produced in the 16th century, containing a wealth of pioneering theories and practical examples; first published in this form in 1537. It also boasts the first consistently executed example of a canon (still called "fuga"), with references to compositions by Josquin and Walther. - Based on the works of Rhaw and Agricola, Listenius's treatise avails itself of Melanchthon's new educational methods and "became very popular as a school primer in Germany and Austria, and had appeared in more than 40 editions before 1583. The treatise was primarily for teaching singing, and is arranged in a novel manner. Each subject is treated in a series of short, simple rules copiously illustrated with music examples. In the section on mensural music Listenius used the canon [...] for his examples. For the first time, in addition to the traditional terms 'musica theoretica' and 'musica practica', he introduced the term 'musica poetica', by which he meant instruction in composition. The term remained in general use in Germany for over a century" (K. W. Niemöller, New Grove XI, 28). - Contemporary handwritten ownership of "Joannes Thenn S." in a humanist hand on the title page (no relationship could be traced to the Franconian Johann Thenn who had become master of the Salzburg mint in 1500); numerous Latin underlinings and marginalia by the same writer in red … [Click Below for Full Description]
