FRANCO Nicolò
G.Guidone, 1542. in - 4 (mm.190x132), ff. (78), bel carattere corsivo, ritratto silografato del Franco, in ovale, sulla pagina di titolo e al recto dell'ultimo foglio. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida, dorso a nervi con titolo ms. Precedono il testo una lettera inviata da Alberto del Carretto all'autore e la dedica di quest'ultimo alla Marchesana del Vasto moglie del Governatore del Ducato di Milano, entrambe da Casale datate 1542. Prima edizione dell'opera, rarissima, che è un breve dialogo tra Sannio, cioè lo stesso autore, e Casutano, un suo amico di gioventù, che celebra le donne di Casale e attribuisce loro ogni pregio. In fine vi sono varie lettere del Franco che non si ritrovano del suo epistolario, tra le quali è famosa quella inviata ad Alberto del Carretto ''nella quale l'autore traccia un quadro disgustoso della Corte di Roma'' (Graesse). Esemplare assai bello (due ex - libris di collezione, firma di antico possessore nel margine bianco del titolo).

Enea VICO (Parma 1523 - Ferrara 1567)
1542. "Bulino, 1542, privo di firma dell'incisione, datato in lastra sul sasso a destra, in basso al centro: 'AVRVM QVOD PRO REDIMENDA CAPTIVA VIRGINE PARENTES/ATTVLERANT LVCEIO SPONSO TRADIT SCIPIO ROMAE EXCD/ANT. SAL.' Da un soggetto attribuito a Salviati. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, con l'indirizzo di Antonio Salamanca. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""aquila nel cerchio con corona"", rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La stampa viene catalogata dal Bartsch come opera di anonimo incisore della scuola di Raimondi, che incide nello stile di Agostino Veneziano, da un modello non identificato di artista fiorentino. Zanetti, invece, vi ravvisa lo stile di Giulio Romano, inglobando l'incisione nella suite di soggetti sulla storia di Scipione eseguiti da Marco Dente. D'Arco, riconoscendo l'opera quale invenzione di Giulio, erroneamente la considera come uno stato dell'incisione di Diana Scultori, e la pone in relazione con il medaglione con la Continenza di Scipione della Stanza dei Cesari. Così anche Dollmayr che attribuisce la stampa a Marco Dente. Cirillo Archer in TIB sostiene che l'incisione sia stilisticamente affine alla Morte di Meleagro di Nicolas Beatrizet. Hermann Voss, seguendo questa indicazione, ascrive correttamente il disegno preparatorio al Salviati, sulla base delle analogie del soggetto con gli affreschi della Storia di Camillo di Palazzo Vecchio a Firenze, e il bulino alla cerchia del Beatrizet. Alla luce di tali ipotesi, la Davis assegna la stampa a Beatrizet stesso. Nella collezione del British Museum … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blado, Antonio, 1542. 4 volumi in - folio (346x237), pp. (4), 620; 621 - 1376 (manca l'ultimo bianco); (2), 1379 - 1970; ff. n. n. 6, 204; stupenda legatura di inizio XX secolo di J. Clarke in marocchino blu, titolo in oro ai dorsi e armi con monogramma di Theodore Williams sui piatti, larga dentelle interna. Impresa tipogr. del Blado ai tre titoli (il volume secondo non ha titolo separato); 3 stemmi silogr. ai ff. preliminari del vol. IV. Unica edizione impressa con lo splendido corsivo greco intagliato da Joannes Honorius per volere del Cardinale Marcello Cervini. Se ne stamparono 1275 esemplari su carta e 2 su pergamena (cfr. L. Dorez, Le Cardinal Cervini et l' imprimerie à Rome). Il volume I contiene il commento dell'Iliade, i vol. II e III, rispettivamente, il testo dell'Iliade e dell'Odissea, mentre il vol. IV, termina il commento ed ha copiosi e dettagliati indici, compilati da Matteo Devarius, impressi su tre colonne in corpo più piccolo. Prima edizione del Commento ai poemi omerici, di Eustazio di Tessalonica, dotto bizantino vissuto nel XII secolo. All'epoca fu il più vasto e stimato, tra i commentari conosciuti, resta ancor oggi assai prezioso per l' immensa ricchezza del materiale che vi è raccolto e per la grande quantità di citazioni di opere andate perdute; i testi sono assai corretti. Splendido, monumentale capolavoro della tipografia greca, che richiese al Blado nove anni di lavoro in collaborazione con altri tipografi, in particolare con Bernardo Giunta. Superbo esemplare a pieni margini, freschissimo. ''Trésor d'érudition grècque..'' (Renouard).

Al-Razi, Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Zakariyya (Rhazes) / Arcolano, Giovanni (ed.)
Venice, heirs of Lucantonio Giunta, 1542. Folio. (12), 509, (3) pp. With woodcut printer's device on t. p., different device on final leaf, and woodcut illustrations of various surgical tools at the end of the preliminaries. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Rare edition of this commentary on the ninth book of the treatise dedicated by ar-Razi (also known as Rhazes; 850-923 or 932) to Almansor, the Prince of Chorosan (with the text). "The manual, known as 'Nonus Almansoris', was popular among mediaeval physicians" (cf. GAL S I, p. 419). The work discusses special pathology but excluding pyrology and was one of the most popular textbooks at medical schools and faculties well into the Middle Ages (cf. Hirsch/H. I, 171). Rhazes is considered the greatest mediaeval physician next to Avicenna; he also conducted alchemical experiments. According to his biographer al-Gildaki, he was blinded for refusing to share his secrets of chemistry. - A woodcut on the final page of the preliminaries depicts 14 different surgical instruments, including a tongue depressor, a forceps, and various instruments for cauterization. Occasional slight brownstaining, but a good copy from the library of the Sicilian physician Blasio Cucuzza, with his ownership on the final page (calling him the "most learned of all Sicilian physicians in Modica, Ragusa and Syracuse") and additional note dated 10 May 1622. - Edit 16, CNCE 2340. Wellcome I, 383. Durling 250. M. H. Fikri, Treasures from The Arab Scientific Legacy in Europe (Qatar 2009) no. 46, with double-page spread illustration on p. 82f.

ARISTOTLE
Lugduni: [Printed by Theobaldus Paganus for] Jacobus Giunta, 1542. n. This is an attractive edition of Aristotle's three works on the "practical sciences": "Nicomachean Ethics," "Politics," and "Economics," with commentary by Leonardo Aretino. A standard work of moral philosophy and one of the foundation documents of Western thought, the "Ethics" outlines the moral virtues that will lead to the well-being of the individual and the general good of society. Aristotle's "Politics" is the last great work of Greek political thought, and one that has had a lasting influence on the organization of Western society. Although the institution that had produced it, the Greek city-state, was already obsolescent, many of the work's important conclusions (e.g., men came together into cities for the sake of life; they continue for the sake of the good life) are valid for any society. The final treatise here, "Economics," covers the spectrum from household management to national monetary policy. Modern scholars consider it more likely to be the work of a student of Aristotle than of the philosopher himself. The commentary here is by Leonardo Bruni (1369-1444), called Aretino from his native Arezzo, who was a leading humanist of the early Renaissance. His insights into politics and economics are of special interest as he was Chancellor of Florence in the time of the Medici.. 171 x 108 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 285, [3] leaves.

In 1262 the municipality of Almudevar was involved in a court case with Pedro Cornelio and Miguel, "scroungers" — and other unnamed scroungers (i.e., legally recognized and entitled gleaners and foragers) — involving rights to woodcutting, pasturing, and other rural "rights." This is a mid-16th-century uncertified copy of the court's 13th-century decision. Very good condition and easy to read.

Saint Bonaventure, James of Milan
Venetiis : Patavinus, 1542. - 1542 Stimulus Amoris S Bonaventure James of Milan Medieval Franciscan Philosophy The Stimulus Amoris was written by the Franciscan James of Milan in the late thirteenth century. The text expanded after James’s death, growing from twenty-three to fifty-three chapters by the early fourteenth century, and growing yet again in its 1476 and 1596 printings. There are at least six forms of the Latin text in existence. In its original version, it survives in ninety manuscripts. The early fourteenth century version, however, often called the Stimulus maior or Forma longa, exists in complete form in 221 manuscripts and partially in another 147. Saint Bonaventure (1221 – 1274), born Giovanni di Fidanza, was an Italian medieval scholastic theologian and philosopher. The seventh Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor, he was also a Cardinal Bishop of Albano. He was canonised on 14 April 1482 by Pope Sixtus IV and declared a Doctor of the Church in the year 1588 by Pope Sixtus V. He is known as the "Seraphic Doctor" (Latin: Doctor Seraphicus). Many writings believed in the Middle Ages to be his are now collected under the name Pseudo-Bonaventura. Main author: Saint Bonaventure, James of Milan Title: Stimulus Divini Amoris Sancti Bonaventurae. Published: Venetiis : Patavinus, 1542.

[Basel: Heinrich Petri in the 'Geographia Universalis', 1542. Woodcut, in excellent condition. The rare first state of Münster's highly important map of Asia, a veritable masterpiece of Renaissance cartography, and the first printed map of Asia. Münster's India Extrema, XIX, Nova Tabula is a very elegant map, that embraces most of Asia, from the Persian Gulf to the Far East. Although largely based on Ptolemy's ancient template, it includes some advancements gleaned from recent Portuguese discoveries. The outlines of the Indian subcontinent, between the Indus and the Ganges rivers begins to take a recognizable form, with "Zaylon" (Sri Lanka) correctly appearing as its own island. The Portuguese outpost of Goa and Calicut, the first place where Vasco da Gama landed in 1497, are depicted. Further to the east "Taprobana" (the name Ptolemy gave to Sri Lanka) is also designated as "Sumatra.".On the adjacent Malay Peninsula is the important trading port of "Malaqua" (Malacca). Java is also portrayed, but is depicted as two separate islands. "Moloca" (The Moluccas), the Spice Islands that were a major point of contention between Spain and Portugal are shown. The resolution of the dispute was the official purpose of Magellan's epic circumnavigation. The depiction of "Cathay" (China) is shown to be largely predicated on Venetian lore. The seas to the south of the map are adorned with a large sea monster and a mermaid with a bifurcated tail.

Fuchs, Leonhart.
Early edition of one of the most important botanical works of the 16th century. Fuchs's standard-setting Historia emphasizes the pharmacological qualities of the plants described and provides over => 500 woodcut illustrations remarkable for their accuracy and reliability, compared to many previous herbals. A number of the plant descriptions herein are the first known to have been published, including those of => New World plants such as chilli pepper, pumpkin, marigold, and tobacco; the plant names are given in Latin, Greek, French, and German. The work was first published in 1542 in folio form, with this smaller format being brought out as more convenient for work in the field and elsewhere. This is the second Lyons edition and the first illustrated Lyons printing, featuring smaller woodcuts specially commissioned by Arnoullet from Clément Boussy, after the Albrecht Meyer and Heinrich Fu?llmaurer originals from the Basel printings. The title-page bears Arnoullet's seahorse and sword device. Binding: 18th-century speckled calf, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt-stamped foliate compartment decorations between gilt-ruled raised bands. Evidence of Readership:Intermittent early inked underlining and occasional annotations; final page (colophon) with substantive early inked annotation in Latin.Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of Tess M.

Basel: Michael Isingrin, 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.

Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine.. Rare edition of this commentary on the ninth book of the treatise dedicated by ar-Razi (also known as Rhazes; 850-923 or 932) to Almansor, the Prince of Chorosan (with the text). The work discusses special pathology but excluding pyrology and was one of the most popular textbooks at medical schools and faculties well into the Middle Ages (cf. Hirsch/H. I, 171). Rhazes is considered the greatest mediaeval physician next to Avicenna; he also conducted alchemical experiments. According to his biographer al-Gildaki, he was blinded for refusing to share his secrets of chemistry. - A woodcut on the final page of the preliminaries depicts 14 different surgical instruments, including a tongue depressor, a forceps, and various instruments for cauterization. Occasional slight brownstaining, but a good copy from the library of the Sicilian physician Blasio Cucuzza, with his ownership on the final page (calling him the "most learned of all Sicilian physicians in Modica, Ragusa and Syracuse") and additional note dated 10 May 1622. - Edit 16, CNCE 2340.

Perotti's translation of the only fully preserved portion of Polybius' Histories (Books 1-5) was originally published in 1473 (Baudrier VIII, 170; Hoffmann III, 272). Sebastian Gryphius (c.1492?-1556) a German printer who worked in Lyon from about 1520 later founded l'Atelier du Griffon there, using his griffin printer's device. By the 1540s he was the highly reputed "Prince of the Lyon book trade". He promoted the local humanist culture, and his books were prized for their clean lay-out and accuracy (Wikipedia).
