FIRST EDITION (first issue, there exists a variant B with an additional bifolium Dd at the end containing a variant of the original wrong on leaf A4r). The De Auro dialogi tres was written at the request of Guglielmo Gonzaga and is dedicated by Portaleone to the latter. The dialogue, whose interlocutors are Dynachrysus, the alter ego of Portaleone, and Achryuasmus, its counterpart, tries to answer the question whether gold has curative virtues or not. Portaleone doesn't keep us in suspense for very long, and gives almost immediately his point of view, which is totally negative: metals do have some power, but gold doesn't have more than the others.

[FLORIS VAN HAARLEM].
[200] ll.Third (?) edition of a rare 16th-century Dutch devotional work written by Floris van Haarlem, Carthusian prior at Louvain and edited by the Antwerp priest Simon van Planen. With a dedicatory letter to Gheraert Heerman, rector and confessor of the Roman Catholic monasteries at Leiden, dated Louvain, 2 April 1542. The work itself is divided into four treatises, with an extensive index. The colophon at the end of the work is cut off, but the privilege at the end is granted to Heyndrick Peetersen and dated 17 January 1546. Because an edition of 1546 is unrecorded, it seems likely that this is the edition published in 1547. Other edition were published by Peetersen van Middelburg in 1542, 1544 and 1552, followed by two other editions in 1564. A Latin translation by Nicolaus Zegerus appeared in 1656 as Via vitae, libellus plane aureus,... Only a few copies of the several editions are known.With library stamp of "St. Hugh's, Parkminster" and manuscript owner's inscription entry of "Pieter Loontjens, filius Johannis" on flyleaf. First and last leave somewhat soiled, four leaves loose in the last quire, some occasional thumbing and colophon on last leave cut off and restored. Binding slightly soiled and spine chipped. Still a good copy.l Cf. BCNI 01998, 02056, 02135, 02329, 02870, 02871; Belg. Typ. 5805, 1159-1162; BMC STC Dutch, p. 76; Jaspers 289-292; Machiels F-155-158.

An exposition of Lurianic Kabbalah by R. Hayyim b. Joseph Vital (1542-1620), one of the greatest kabbalists, and the leading disciple of R. Isaac Ben Solomon Luria Ashkenazi (1534-1572, ha-Ari). R. Hayyim Ben Joseph Vital was born in Safed and studied in yeshivot there, especially under R. Moses Alshekh, his teacher in exoteric subjects. In 1564 he began to study Kabbalah, at first according to the system R. Moses Cordovero, and, after R. Isaac Luria's (Ari) arrival in Safed, under the latter, becoming the Ari's principal disciple. After the Ari's death, R. Vital began to arrange the Ari's teachings in written form, elaborating on them according to his own understanding, becoming the primary transmitter of the Ari's teachings.

ALAMANNI, Luigi.
Opere toscane. Venice, heirs of Lucantonio Giunta (colophons: printed by Peter Schoeffer the younger), 1542. 2 volumes bound as 1. 8vo. With 2 title-pages, each with the same woodcut Giunta device, and a full-page woodcut showing a larger version of the same device on the last printed page of vol. 2. Set in an Aldine-style italic. 18th-century gold-tooled mottled calf. [16], 431, [1 blank]; 295, [7] pp. Third edition of frequently satirical poetry and plays written in (mostly blank) Italian verse by the Florentine statesman, poet and playwright Luigi Alamanni (1495-1556). He and his contemporary Giangiorgio Trissino pioneered the use of blank verse in Italian poetry. The French King François I (1494-1547), who promoted Renaissance Italian ideas and fashions in France, had been allied with the Medici in Florence, but when Giulio de' Medici (from 1523 Pope Clement VII) and François I fell out in 1521, Luigi Alamanni, whose family had long supported the Medici, took François's side and plotted against Giulio. As a result Luigi had to flee to France, living part of the time in Lyon and frequenting François's court in Paris. He returned to Florence when the Medici fell in 1527 but fled again when they regained power in 1530. As a result, he wrote most of his works in France.The book was printed for the Giunti heirs by Peter Schoeffer the younger (ca. 1475/80-1547), the son of Gutenberg's assistant, who began printing in Mainz, but printed in Venice in 1541 and 1542. With an early owner's inscription at the foot of the title-page. The first page and last page are very slightly br … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio (31.5 x 21.5 cm). With Jean André's woodcut device on the title-page and 15 woodcut illustrations plus 21 repeats in the text (mostly 5.5 x 8 cm, each in any of several 4-piece decorative borders, including 8 foot pieces, each with a different coat of arms; one illustration 13.5 x 8.5 cm with an 8-piece decorative border), 5 woodcut decorated initials (2 series) plus 1 repeat, and many spaces with guide-letters for manuscript initials (not filled in). French calf (ca. 1760?), richly gold-tooled spine, gilt edges. VI, CLXXIIII ll. Jean André issue of the extremely influential first French-language edition (by Adrien Sevin) of Boccaccio's first major work, Il filocolo (ca. 1336), a prose tale detailing the romantic love and adventures of Florio and Biancafiore (based on the ca. 1160 French verse romance Floire et Blancheflor), written at the request of Boccaccio's muse "Fiammetta". Boccaccio's version served as the model for Chaucer's more than fifty years later, but it is a reworking rather than a translation, so it was largely through the present printed translation that Il philocope, a precursor of the better known Decameron, became known north of the Alps. The fine woodcut illustrations first appeared in Janot's 1540 edition of Amadis de Gaula, and after the Philocope also for several other romances. The border … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHRISTUS PATIENS
Rome: A. Blado, 1542. Early 19th-century gilt-ruled straight-grained green morocco, engraved ticket of Derome le jeune on the blank front flyleaf, marbled endleaves, flat spine, daisies and gilt-lettered title (hinges and corners rubbed), all edges gilt, pink silk marker. EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THIS ?TWELFTH-CENTURY GREEK PLAY WITH A FEMALE PROTAGONIST. IT INSPIRED MILTON'S SAMSON AGONISTES. "Little Byzantine literature has been read, edited and discussed as much" (Krumbacher, tr.).  Mary Mother of God and her sufferings, not Christ's, are the focus of this Christian passion play in 2600 verses. The work is divided in three parts, the passion and death of Christ, the entombment of Christ and the resurrection of Christ. Each part conforms to the classical unities of action, time and place, and all three adopt the ancient Greek convention of a chorus, in this case two, both composed of young women, who alternately query and counsel Mary. NEARLY HALF THE TEXT COMES IN WHOLE OR IN PART FROM EURIPIDES, and portions of the lost end of the Bacchae have been recovered from this cento, which also draws on Aeschylus, Lycophron and Romanos the Melodist.  Authorship remains in dispute. Tradition and the most recent scholarly edition (by Tuilier) claim it for Gregory Nazianzenus (329-390), while general consensus places its composition between the eighth and twelfth century, possibly by Constantinus Manasses (c. 1130-c. 1187.).  In this first edition, Blado gave the text the title by which it has since been known, Christus patiens, and, without comment, credited it to Gregory.

ALAMANNI, Luigi.
Opere toscane. Venice, heirs of Lucantonio Giunta (colophons: printed by Peter Schoeffer the younger), 1542. 2 volumes bound as 1. 8vo. With 2 title-pages, each with the same woodcut Giunta device, and a full-page woodcut showing a larger version of the same device on the last printed page of vol. 2. Set in an Aldine-style italic. 18th-century gold-tooled mottled calf. [16], 431, [1 blank]; 295, [7] pp. Third edition of frequently satirical poetry and plays written in (mostly blank) Italian verse by the Florentine statesman, poet and playwright Luigi Alamanni (1495-1556). He and his contemporary Giangiorgio Trissino pioneered the use of blank verse in Italian poetry. The French King François I (1494-1547), who promoted Renaissance Italian ideas and fashions in France, had been allied with the Medici in Florence, but when Giulio de' Medici (from 1523 Pope Clement VII) and François I fell out in 1521, Luigi Alamanni, whose family had long supported the Medici, took François's side and plotted against Giulio. As a result Luigi had to flee to France, living part of the time in Lyon and frequenting François's court in Paris. He returned to Florence when the Medici fell in 1527 but fled again when they regained power in 1530. As a result, he wrote most of his works in France.The book was printed for the Giunti heirs by Peter Schoeffer the younger (ca. 1475/80-1547), the son of Gutenberg's assistant, who began printing in Mainz, but printed in Venice in 1541 and 1542. With an early owner's inscription at the foot of the title-page. The first page and last page are very slightly br … [Click Below for Full Description]

The De Auro dialogi tres was written at the request of Guglielmo Gonzaga and is dedicated by Portaleone to the latter. The dialogue, whose interlocutors are Dynachrysus, the alter ego of Portaleone, and Achryuasmus, its counterpart, tries to answer the question whether gold has curative virtues or not. Portaleone doesn't keep us in suspense for very long, and gives almost immediately his point of view, which is totally negative: metals do have some power, but gold doesn't have more than the others … [Click Below for Full Description]

The colloquy took place at the Regensburg Diet and opened on 5 April 1541, with the main goal to save the unity of the Church in Germany. Selected as debaters were Martin Bucer, Philipp Melanchthon and Johann Pistorius on the Protestant side, Johann Gropper, Johann Eck and Julius Pflug were selected on the Catholic side. Other attendants of the colloquy were Calvin and Pighius. Dogmatically however this attempt at compromise made at Ratisbon was doomed to fail as Protestantism and Catholicism had already taken up the definite positions which they reached at the end of the century.

Italy (Florence?) between 1542 and 1549. MANUSCRIPT OF HISTORICAL CHRONICLES IN ITS ORIGINAL FOLDER BINDING. In Italian, manuscript on paper, Italy (Florence?), between 1542 and 1549. Dimensions 218 x 145 mm, 50 folios, many blank folios but complete, written in a quick mercantesca script on 24-26 lines. BINDING: original folder binding made from a recycled late fourteenth- or fifteenth-century parchment folio (with an unidentified text), quires gathered in two booklets, sewn together with white thread and tacketed to the folder binding at head and tail of spine with twisted parchment cord. TEXT: brief vernacular chronicles of the kings and emperors of Rome, Holy Roman Emperors, and the popes, almost certainly unedited, and likely never printed. PROVENANCE: written in a legible but unpolished script, probably for the scribe's own use, certainly made between 1542 and 1549: the last date recorded for the Holy Roman Emperors. The booklet's script was only used for vernacular texts and was the primary script of the middle-class literate who generally received a monolingual (Italian) education. Contemporary and later readers left no traces of use behind in this manuscript. CONDITION: occasional minor stains from damp, primarily at edges, and some insignificant chipping or gnawing at edges, some small holes, tears, and gnawing at edges of binding, but overall in good condition. Full description and images available. (TM 1068)

Assieme alle opere di Galeno ed Ippocrate, quest'importante lavoro fu una delle fonti più autorevoli ed utilizzate per la preparazione di ricette mediche a partire dal cosiddetto rinascimento della medicina greca, avvenuto tra quattro e cinquecento, fino a tutto l'ottocento. La farmacopea di Dioscoride contiene informazioni sulle piante, gli animali e le pietre in relazione alle loro proprietà farmacologiche e alle sostanze, chiamate "semplici", derivate dalla lavorazione dei materiali organici.
