        Orlando Furioso... novissimamente alla sua integrità ridotto, ornato di varie figure

      Venice: Gabriel Giolito de&#39; Ferrari, 1542. Hard cover. Very Good/First Giolito edition and first illustrated edition of Orlando Furioso, and as such a seminal artifact of the formation of Italian literary consciousness. Ariosto&#39;s poem was not an immediate bestseller. While the final version of Orlando Furioso was published in 1532, the poem did not achieve widespread popularity until the appearance of this Giolito edition, with its content-appropriate illustrations accompanying each of the 46 cantos. After this breakthrough, the poem was published ceaselessly by several Venetian houses through the century. Giolito himself had already published the Furioso twice, but this edition (according to Bongi) "was the most original ... in all Italian literature of the cinquecento," and was truly the springboard of Giolito&#39;s career as a book designer and publisher. The lines by Gonzaga (which became a standard feature in many editions of the poem) appear here for the first time, as does Lodovico Dolce&#39;s "Espositione di tutti i vocaboli et luoghi difficili che nel libro si trovano." Dolce, in fact, edited the text.. Quarto (23 cm); 260, xx leaves. Title within elaborate woodcut architectural border, text with 46 woodcut vignettes and initials at beginning of each canto. Woodcut oval portrait bust of Ariosto on verso on leaf 260; unpaginated 20-leaf commentary by Lodovico Dolce with separate title page and woodcut publisher&#39;s device of phoenix rising. Bound in recent full calf in period style, with raised bands and black leather title label. Mild aging at first and last leaves, with some loss along right margin of title page, repaired. Some deterioration at right margin of first 25 leaves with no loss of text. Ownership inscriptions on front blank (1867), title page (Catherine Brehl, 1573), and colophon (1575). References: Gamba 53; Bongi p.43 ("Edizione di molta rarità"); Agnelli-Ravignani I,60; Harthan, p.103.

        De historia stirpium commentarii insignes. adiectis earundem vivis plusquam quingentis imaginibus, nunquam antea ad naturae imitationem artificiosius effectis & expressis

      Basel: Michel Isingrin, 1542. Folio (14 4/8 x 10 4/8 inches). Roman type, preface in italic, index and German plant names in gothic type. Full-page woodcut of the author "at the age of 41" on verso of title-page, 509 full-page botanical woodcuts, two smaller woodcuts in the text, by Veit Rudolphe Speckle after Heinrich Füllmaurer and Albrecht Meyer, and three woodcut self-portraits of the artists on recto of errata leaf (penultimate leaf, fff5), ALL WOODCUTS HAND-COLORED, most in a near-contemporary hand, some finished at a later date. Woodcut printer&#39;s device on title and verso of final leaf; woodcut historiated initials (title-leaf and last 2 leaves rehinged, preliminary text leaf a4 apparently supplied, foremargins of last few leaves affected by damp and repaired, the repair to last leaf grazing the edge of woodcut on recto, repaired 2-inch tear to f. mm6 just touching woodcut, 5 or 6 leaves with small marginal tears not affecting text or image, ff. I3.4 with fore-edges frayed or chewed, small stain in lower gutters of first 50 leaves). Supplemental 18th-century manuscript indices bound in at front and back, on guards. Contemporary blind-panelled German calf over wooden boards, each cover decorated with two panels of bird and floral roll-tool and blind fillets, remains of two brass cornerpieces, fore-edge lettered "Fux" at top and "Legendre" in later 18th-century double-line capitals (skillfully rebacked to style, endpapers renewed). Provenance: "Legendre", early fore-edge lettering; ownership inscription of Lambert Michel Winckelmann dated 1714 on the title-page, and a few marginal notes; manuscript indices and marginalia of Jean Baptiste Lestiboudois (1715-1804), botanist, pharmacist, and author; a few Linnean names added in pencil in a modern hand; Fr. Redmond Ambrose Burke, historian of reading and publishing. First edition. An exceptionally tall and internally fresh copy with ATTRACTIVE NEAR-CONTEMPORARY HAND- COLORING. "The most celebrated and beautiful herbal ever published" (Printing and the Mind of Man). The first botanical book to truly contain realistic illustrations of specimens was Brunfels&#39; "Herbarum vivae icons" of 1530. Fuchs continued to revolutionize of the art of botanical illustration with his rigorously accurate depictions of plants, as an alternative to re-copying the traditional woodblocks and schematic illustrations of previous editions of herbals. Fuchs&#39; work describes and illustrates over 400 German plants and 100 foreign plants and includes the first illustrations of approximately forty plants, amongst them several newly discovered American species such as maize and pumpkin. As with his predecessors Fuchs based much of his text on the traditional works of Dioscorides, but his work is complimented by new observations based on practical experience. In their turn Fuchs&#39;s woodcuts became models, not only for the many later editions of this work, but for the works of other botanical writers, including Bock, Dodoens, and William Turner. From the distinguished libraries of generations of scholars: Michel Winckelmann signed the title-page in 1714, and identified himself as a pharmacist from Lille, he has added a few marginal notes, including several lengthy ones on the medicinal properties and pharmaceutical preparation of some of the plants. Jean-Baptiste Lestiboudois from Douai was pharmacist to the French army before settling in Lille, where he became a reknowned botanist, founding the Lille botanical garden, writing an early appreciation of the nutritional and agricultural benefits of the potato, and other important botanical publications including an innovative botanical table (1774) that brought together the classification systems of Linnaeus and J. P. Tournefort. Lestiboudois has added the correct Linnean names in manuscript below the Latin captions to each woodcut, crossing out any incorrect nomenclature, and supplied a 16-page manuscript index to the Linnean names of each plant, neatly written in double column within ruled frames (signed on the first page "J.J.B.Lestiboudois"), and and 8 1/4 page classified index of the plants arranged according to Linnaeus&#39; sexual system. Fr. Redmond Ambrose Burke (whose collection of important early printed books was sold at Sotheby&#39;s in 1997) was the author of a short history of the index: "What is the Index?", Milwaukee 1952, among other studies in the history of publishing and reading.

        Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula

      [Basel: Heinrich Petri in the &#39;Geographia Universalis&#39;, 1542]. Woodcut map, in excellent condition. 11 3/4 x 15 1/8 inches. The first state of the earliest reasonably obtainable map to focus on the depiction of the entire continent of Africa, and a veritable masterpiece of Renaissance cartography This highly important map represents the earliest reasonably obtainable map to depict the entire continent of Africa. Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula, is a fantastic visual synergy of archaic imagination and recent exploration. The overall shape of the continent is quite well defined, having been extensively explored by the Portuguese since the time of Prince Henry the Navigator in the mid-fifteenth-century, a point highlighted by the appearance of a caravel in the lower part of the map. Africa&#39;s various kingdoms are denoted by pictorial symbols of a crown and sceptre. Following Ptolemaic tradition, the Nile has its source in a series of lakes that lie at the foot of the mysterious Mountains of the Moon. The land around the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa is embellished by the appearance of an elephant, and exotic parrots occupy trees in Angola. Most amusingly, near the coast of east Africa, the "Monoculi," or one-eyed man imagined by Classical writers sits in wait for some hypothetical European visitor. Münster was a brilliant polymath and one of the most important intellectuals of the Renaissance era. Educated at Tübingen, his surviving college notebooks, Kollegienbuch, reveal a mind of insatiable curiosity, especially with regards to cosmography. Münster later became a professor of Hebrew at Heidelberg, and then from 1529 at the University of Basle. In the 1530s, he turned his attentions to translating Ptolemy&#39;s Geography, adding new material that related to the lands newly discovered in Africa, the Americas and Asia. The result was the publication of his highly regarded Geographia Universalis, first printed in 1540.

Münster was also a trend-setter in his ideas regarding design and layout of maps, and he was one of the first to create space on his woodblocks for the insertion of place names in metal type.

        Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula

      [Basel: Heinrich Petri in the 'Geographia Universalis', 1542]. Woodcut map, in excellent condition. 11 3/4 x 15 1/8 inches. The first state of the earliest reasonably obtainable map to focus on the depiction of the entire continent of Africa, and a veritable masterpiece of Renaissance cartography This highly important map represents the earliest reasonably obtainable map to depict the entire continent of Africa. Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula, is a fantastic visual synergy of archaic imagination and recent exploration. The overall shape of the continent is quite well defined, having been extensively explored by the Portuguese since the time of Prince Henry the Navigator in the mid-fifteenth-century, a point highlighted by the appearance of a caravel in the lower part of the map. Africa's various kingdoms are denoted by pictorial symbols of a crown and sceptre. Following Ptolemaic tradition, the Nile has its source in a series of lakes that lie at the foot of the mysterious Mountains of the Moon. The land around the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa is embellished by the appearance of an elephant, and exotic parrots occupy trees in Angola. Most amusingly, near the coast of east Africa, the "Monoculi," or one-eyed man imagined by Classical writers sits in wait for some hypothetical European visitor.Münster was a brilliant polymath and one of the most important intellectuals of the Renaissance era. Educated at Tübingen, his surviving college notebooks, Kollegienbuch, reveal a mind of insatiable curiosity, especially with regards to cosmography. Münster later became a professor of Hebrew at Heidelberg, and then from 1529 at the University of Basle. In the 1530s, he turned his attentions to translating Ptolemy's Geography, adding new material that related to the lands newly discovered in Africa, the Americas and Asia. The result was the publication of his highly regarded Geographia Universalis, first printed in 1540. The present map is from the second edition, but still represents the first-state of the map, as the same unaltered woodblock from the initial printing was employed in the production of the second edition. Münster was also a trend-setter in his ideas regarding design and layout of maps, and he was one of the first to create space on his woodblocks for the insertion of place names in metal type.

        Platonici in virtutes morales, ac ciuiles, & partes, facultates que animi Commentarius, nunc primum editus. Raphaele Mambla interprete. Cui Tabellae easdem res ab eodem addite.

      Roma, ex Officina Balthasaris Cartularii Perusini [Baldassare Cartolari, Cartolaio, Cartullaria], 1542. Small 8vo. Bound in a nice later (19th cent.) marbled boards. Spine with minor wear and a few smaller spots. Four first leaves with a few spots, otherwise very nice and clean. All in all a nice and attractive copy. from the library of Petrus Buoninsegnus, with his book-plate (dated 1814) to inside of front board. (4), 26, (1) ff.. The very rare first, and perhaps only, edition of this work, consisting in extracts of Proclos' philosophical works in Latin, namely those on Plato, composed by Raphaël Mambla.Renaissance printings of the philosophical works of the great Greek Neoplatonist Proclos (410-85) (often considered the last great Neoplatonist) are of the utmost scarcity. His greatest contribution lies in his commentaries on Plato's works, as well as his "Theological Elements". He developed one of the most elaborate, precise and convincing systems of Neoplatonism, and his influence on Medieval, and later also Renaissance, thought was immense. Neoplatonism is a term invented in the 18th century for a school of religious and mystical philosophy, which was founded in the third century and dominated down to the end of Antiquity in the sixth century, when the Emperor Justinian closed the Neoplatonic Academy (529). Neoplatonic teaching revolved around a renewed study of the teachings of Plato that were now combined with the doctrines of other schools of Greek philosophy. The school called itself Platonic, but modern historians named it "Neoplatonic" in order to emphasize its differences from Plato. Plato's dialogues were the main philosophical authority, but Plotinus, Ammnius, Proclus, and the other Noeplatonists attempted to fit all of Plato's scattered doctrines into a coherent system and to incorporate other Stoic and Aristotelian ideas into this, thus creating a comprehensive synthesis of Greek thought. As such Neoplatonism came to dominate the final phase of ancient philosophy and bequeathed its heritage to subsequent ages. Neoplatonism must be considered the only really original product of Greek philosophy in the third century, and after having been neglected during the Middle Ages, this original philosophical direction was re-discovered in the Renaissance, the philosophy of which came to be hugely dominated by it. "In Proclus, one of the last heads of the Athenian school, Neoplatonism attains its most systematic and even schematic perfection. In his "Elements of Theology" and "Platonic Theology" all things and their mutual relations are neatly defined and deduced in their proper place and order; and the concepts of Aristotle's logic and metaphysics, divested of their specific and concrete reference, are used as elements of a highly abstract and comprehensive ontology. As a commentator, Proclus applied this neat and scholastic system to some of Plato's dialogues, just as other members of the school applied it to Aristotle. And as the leading philosophy of the period, Neoplatonism supplied practically all later Greek Church Fathers and theologians with their philosophical terms and concepts..." (Kristeller, Renaissance Thought and its Sources, p. 53).During the Renaissance a special and profound interest in the teachings of Neoplatonism emerged, and the 15th and 16th century Latin translations and editions of the works of Plato and of the Neoplatonists, which made the texts available to Western readers, are of immense importance to the history of Platonism, Neoplatonism, and Western thought in general.Not in Adams, not in Graesse, not in Brunet
