Fuchs, Leonhart
Michael Isingrin, Basel, 1542. First edition. Woodcut portraits of Fuchs, Albrecht Meyer, Heinrich Füllmaurer, and Veit Rudolf Speckle; and 512 woodcuts of plants after drawings from nature by Meyer, transferred to woodblocks by Füllmaurer, and cut into the block by Speckle. [xxviii], 896 pp. Folio (14-1/2 x 19-1/16 inches ; 362 x 320 mm.). A Milestone of Botanical Science. One of the most justly celebrated and highly prized of the early herbals. Leonhart Fuchs was an eminent practicing physician and Professor of Medicine at the Protestant University of Tübingen. Fuchs aimed his work at an audience of professionals in order to provide them with accurate descriptions of plants, including many recently imported into Europe from America, Africa, and Asia. Today, Fuchs' work is prized not only for its scholarly value, but also for the surpassing beauty of its illustrations. The methodical layout, the organization of the subject matter, the spacious design, and the number, size, and beauty of the illustrations have caused the herbal to appeal to botanists and bibliophiles alike ? Scholars today consider the herbal to be one of the significant landmarks of pre-Linnean literature (Grolier 100). Fuchs also included portraits of the artists he collaborated with in creating the book-Albrecht Meyer, who drew the plants from life; Heinrich Füllmaurer, who transferred the line drawings to woodblocks; and Vitus Rudolph Speckle, who cut the blocks and printed the woodcut illustrations-are portrayed at the end of the volume.

Fabyan Robert
London 1542. Very Rare, Early Printing of Fabyan's Chronicle. Folio, bound in late 17th or early 18th century mottled calf, spine gilt A well preserved copy. A VERY RARE AND AN IMPORTANT WORK. NO COPIES IN COMMERCE. "Fabyan was the first of the citizen chroniclers of London who conceived the design of expanding his diary into a general history. His work was called by himself 'The Concordance of Histories,' and beginning with the arrival of Brutus, gave a general survey of the affairs of England, and n later times of France also. The first six books are brief, and reach to the Norman Conquest; the seventh book extends from the Norman Conquest to his own day. Fabyan was well acquainted with Latin and French, and shows a large knowledge of previous writers, but his object is to harmonize their accounts, and so doing he shows no critical sagacity. He is valuable as an authority as he reaches his own time. From the accession of Richard I his book assumes the form of a London Chronicle, and the years are divided by the names of the mayors an sheriffs. He has an eye for city pageantry, ad gives details fo many public festivities. Occasionally he breaks into verse, beginning his books with poems in honour of the Virgin; be he inserts a complaint of Edward II, which is in the style made familiar by the 'Mirrour of Magistrates'. Fabyan's verse is ruder than his prose. Fabyan's work was first printed by Pynson in 1516 with the title 'The New Chronicles of England and France', and this first edition is exceedingly rare.

PORZIO, Simone (1497-1554)-GELLI, Giovanni Battista tr. (1498-1563)
In 8vo (mm 149x103). Pagine 52, [4]. Segnatura: A-C8D4. Capilettera ornati incisi in legno. Lievissime fioriture occasionali e alcune macchie marginali, ma ottima copia. Legatura del XX secolo in cartonato, piatti ricoperti da carta marmorizzata, titolo impresso in oro su tassello in pergamena al dorso. Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris inciso di Francisco Bracchini. Nota manoscritti alla p. 50, qualche sottolineatura in inchiostro bruno. Rara prima edizione, stampata senza dati editoriali ma da attribuirsi al tipografo Lorenzo Torrentino, del volgarizzamento, ad opera di Giovann Battista Gelli, di questo opuscolo redatto intorno al 1542 dal medico e filosofo napoletano Simone Porzio, ma apparso per la prima volta solo nel 1551, presso i torchi del Torrentino, con il titolo De puella germanica, quae fere biennium vixerat sine cibo, potuque. L'operetta narra del fatto prodigioso, avvenuto intorno al 1542 vicino a Spira, di una ragazza tedesca anoressica di nome Margarete Weiss, che rimase senza mangiare né bere per oltre due anni. Porzio cerca di spiegare da un punto di vista medico come questo sia stato possibile, concludendo che la natura flemmatica e la frigidità della ragazza, unitamente agli umori crudi, hanno reso la cosa possibile. La ragazza era stata mostrata in pubblico durante la Dieta di Speyer del 1542 e poi affidata al medico Gerhard Bucholtz, il quale poche settimane dopo stilò un rapporto che attestò il carattere non finto dell'inedia (cfr. D. Castelli, Simone Porzio e il "De puella Germanica": l' "inedia' mirabile di una fanciulla tedesca, in: "Studi filos … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fabyan Robert
London 1542. Very Rare, Early Printing of Fabyan's Chronicle. Folio, bound in late 17th or early 18th century mottled calf, spine gilt A well preserved copy. A VERY RARE AND AN IMPORTANT WORK. NO COPIES IN COMMERCE. "Fabyan was the first of the citizen chroniclers of London who conceived the design of expanding his diary into a general history. His work was called by himself 'The Concordance of Histories,' and beginning with the arrival of Brutus, gave a general survey of the affairs of England, and n later times of France also. The first six books are brief, and reach to the Norman Conquest; the seventh book extends from the Norman Conquest to his own day. Fabyan was well acquainted with Latin and French, and shows a large knowledge of previous writers, but his object is to harmonize their accounts, and so doing he shows no critical sagacity. He is valuable as an authority as he reaches his own time. From the accession of Richard I his book assumes the form of a London Chronicle, and the years are divided by the names of the mayors an sheriffs. He has an eye for city pageantry, ad gives details fo many public festivities. Occasionally he breaks into verse, beginning his books with poems in honour of the Virgin; be he inserts a complaint of Edward II, which is in the style made familiar by the 'Mirrour of Magistrates'. Fabyan's verse is ruder than his prose. Fabyan's work was first printed by Pynson in 1516 with the title 'The New Chronicles of England and France', and this first edition is exceedingly rare. Bale says that the book was burnt by order of Cardinal Wolsey beca … [Click Below for Full Description]

VASSÉ, Jean]
[VASSÉ, Jean]. De iudiciis urinarum tractatus Venice, Excudebat Venturinus Roffinellus, 1542. £1350 12mo, 32 unnumbered leaves, A-D8 (two final blank). Roman letter, sporadic Italic. Woodcut clover on title-page, decorated initials. Early handwritten maniculae, underlining and comments throughout, especially in regard to “urina oleosa” (oily urine). Last two blank leaves with sort of ms. indexing, very faded. In modern limp vellum. This is a rare edition of collection of medical opinions and observations on urine, gathered from the works of several authoritative authors. According to Renaissance medicine, which was based on Latin sources, such as Pliny’s Natural History, just to mention one, and Ancient Greek sources, especially Aristotle and, above all, Hippocrates and Galen, the human faculties originated mainly from three organs: brain, heart and liver. The proper or bad functioning of these organs was correctly believed to determine either illness or health. The brain regulates memory and thinking; the heart keeps our blood moving; the liver shows its health condition through urine, according to the writer. This book lists and classifies different types of urine according to their colour, odour, grade of fluidity, temperature and so on, prescribing remedies. Such features were considered to give indications on the state of the four humours in the human body, which balance was held to be crucial to good health. Even though the present work does not bear the author’s name, it is common knowledge that the physician Jean Vassé wrote this short treatise. He was dean of the f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Homer
Strasburg: Bernard Lintot, 1542. Early printing of Homer's masterpieces The Iliad and the Odyssey in the original Greek. Octavo, bound in contemporary blindstamped pigskin over boards, brass clasps and hinges to The Odyssey. In excellent condition with some browning and general soiling. The Iliad with woodcut titles and printer's devices at colophon (in Greek); some contemporary Greek and Latin annotations and scholia and on the pastedowns. The Odyssey contains a second woodcut title and printer's device at conclusion to Hymns. The subscribers list for the Iliad lists 575 subscribers, including Addison, Congreve, Newton, Steele and others; that for The Odyssey are 610 (including those in the supplementary list appended to the final volume). For the Odyssey, Pope was assisted by Elijah Fenton and William Broome, and pencil notes in the texts identify the responsible party for the specific Books and Notes. That those pencil annotations and incidental others in pencil in the same hand scattered elsewhere are Hobhouse's seems probable, as a pencil note in a quite similar (or same) hand appears at the conclusion of the Postscript to the final volume (14 Dec. 1843 J.H.), suggesting either the date of his acquisition of the set, or more likely, his completion of reading. Editions in folio (large and small) to benefit the publisher followed the appearance of each new volume in a timely fashion, the proceeds from Subscriber's quarto edition having been Pope's exclusively. Encouraged by Swift, Addison and Steele, among others, Pope began translating Homer in 1713. The arduous undert … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ex officina Roberti Stephani Typographi Regii, 1542. QUINTILIANUS, Marcus Fabius. Institutionum oratoriarum Libri XII. Paris, Ex officina Roberti Stephani Typographi Regii, 1542. £1250 4to, 551 (=651) (li), a-z8 A-Y8. Roman letter, very sporadic Greek type. Printer’s device on title page. Capital spaces with guide-letters. Slightly trimmed. Early marginalia in a clear Latin calligraphy and underlining by different hands, a few seemingly washed, or erased, in any case well faded. Occasional recent pencil marks. In a modern straight-grain gilt morocco binding, fleurons at centre of covers and borders, spine in compartments with alternate pattern of fleurons and dices, dentelle borders, a.e.r. A fine copy. This is Robert Estienne’s edition of the Institutes of Oratory in twelve volumes by the Spanish-born Roman rhetorician Quintilian (ca. 35-100 AD), which is one of the most renowned and popular works on the theory and practice of oratory. The work had an incredible influence, especially during the Renaissance, on Western tradition of political oratory. In Rome Quintilian met with great success as a teacher and was the first rhetorician to set up a genuine public school and to receive a salary from the State. He continued to teach for twenty years and among his pupils were Pliny the Younger and the two sons of Domitilla, the sister of Domitian. As a stylist, though he is often difficult owing to compression and the epigrammatic turn which he gives his phrases, he is never affected or extravagant. He is still under the influence of the sound traditions of the Ciceronian age, an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antonio Boatto
(al colophon) Venturino di Rossinelli, 1542. In-8°; cc (24) incluse 2 ccbb.Al frontespizio un legno.La Vita di San Prosdocimo ha un proprio frontespizio. Alla prima carta bianca nota manoscritta. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena. una raccolta di capitoli in terzine, ciascuno con un proprio titolo, del rimatore petrarchista Antonio Boatto. "Il contrasto (schema antichissimo da Iacopone a Bonvesin) si sviluppa vivacemente in direzione teatrale, opponendo il materialismo dell'uomo esteriore all'ascesi platonica dell'altro; alla fine l'uomo esteriore si converte, in una notevole drammatizzazione dell'intervento della grazia di Dio, che salva l'uomo senza conculcare il libero arbitrio: tema da mettere senz'altro in rapporto con il capitolo contro Lutero. Quest'ultimo testo... è illuminante per capire quanto gli echi della rivoluzione teologica della Riforma fossero diffusi anche tra i semplici fedeli: Boatto descrive con estrema lucidità, nella sua invettiva, i punti salienti della predicazione di Lutero, dal libero esame delle Scritture, alla questione della grazia, del libero arbitrio, e quindi della validità del Purgatorio e dei sacramenti" (G. Da Pozzo, a cura di, Storia letteraria d'Italia, Il Cinquecento, 2, p. 953, 1066).

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.

Egineta Paolo
ap. Andream Arrivabenum (Ioannem Farreum..), 1542. In-8° (158x105mm), ff. (82) di indice bicolonne, 395, (1) di registro, legatura secentesca p. pergamena con titolo calligrafato in antico sul dorso. Capilettera istoriati in xilografia. Qualche lieve alone. Ottimo stato. Seconda edizione della traduzione latina del grande medico tedesco Johann Winther (Andernach, 1487-Strasburgo, 1574) del celebre trattato di Paolo d'Egina, medico bizantino del VII secolo della scuola alessandrina. Paolo di Egina, nato verso il 620, studiò ad Alessandria e fu attivo in Asia Minore e a Roma, componendo anche due trattati andati perduti sul regime dietetico dei bambini e sulle malattie muliebri; scarsissime, nel complesso, le notizie certe sulla sua vita. Del suo trattato, epitome della medicina classica, incontrò nei secoli particolare favore il sesto libro, la più organica opera sulla chirurgia lasciataci dall'antichità, molte volte trascritto nel Medioevo, anche da medici arabi come Albucasis, e tra i primi testi classici ad essere studiato e tradotto nell'Italia rinascimentale; di considerevole interesse le parti relative alla ginecologia e all'ostetricia, ai tumori, alle malattie epatiche e della vescica. Non mancano nell'opera cenni sull'alimentazione e la dietetica, sull'enologia, sui denti, sulla pediatria, sulla pneumologia, ecc. "Paulus Aeginas was the most important physician of his day and a skillful surgeon. He gave original descriptions of lithotomy, trephining, tonsillectomy, paracentesis and amputation of the breast; the first clear description of the effects of lead poisoning … [Click Below for Full Description]

Macchioline e bruniture al primo frontespizio, arrossature sparse, più evidenti ad alcuni ff., ma buon esemplare nel complesso. (5135) Bella edizione dei testi pindarici, in eleganti caratteri greci, con i versi contornati dal fittissimo commento, sempre in fitti caratteri greci.
