        Machumetis Saracenorum principis, eiusque successorum vitae, ac doctrina, ipseque Alcoran. His adiunctae sunt confutationes multorum authorum una cum Martini Lutheri proemonitione. Adiunctae sunt etiam, Turcarum res gestae. Opera et studio Th. Bibliandri. [Basel, Johann Oporinus & Nikolaus Brylinger, 1543].

      1543. Folio (215 x 306 mm). 3 pts. in 1 volume. (28), 230, (10) pp. (8), 178 pp., 1 bl. f., 163 pp. (Bound with) II: John VI Kantakuzenos. Contra Mahometicam fidem christiana & orthodoxa assertio, Graece conscripta, nunc vero Latinitate donata, R. Gualthero interprete. Adiecta est eadem Graeca scripta. Basel, J. Oporinus, 1543. 2 pts. (12), 124, (4) pp. (8), 108, (2) pp. Contemporary half calf over wooden boards, signed and dated "PAZL 1659". First edition of the first-ever printed Quran translation. "The text of this Latin version is based upon an Arabic manuscript acquired by Pierre de Cluny and Bernard de Clairvaux in Toledo in the 12th century. Pierre de Cluny charged the Englishman Robert von Kent, also in Toledo, with translating the ms. into Latin. Four hundred years later, Martin Luther had a copy of this text, and he commissioned Theodor Bibliander to publish it. Apart from this version, Bibliander used three other mss. he had managed to discover. However, the finished print sheets as well as the set type were seized by the Basel authorities on 1 July 1542. Prolonged negotiations ensued, and Oporinus was arrested on 30 August and imprisoned briefly. It was only the emphatic intervention by Luther and Melanchthon that prevented the work from being destroyed. On 7 December, the Basel council permitted the book to be published under the condition that neither the name of the city nor that of the printer be stated. Luther was compelled to contribute a preface, and the book must be sold in Wittenberg only" (cf. Enay). The second part contains a compilation of earlier writings about Islam and the Quran, some printed in Greek and Latin parallel text, including writings by Savonarola and Nicolaus Cusanus. The third part contains writings about the Ottomans, Islam, and Tamerlane's Mongolian invasion. - II: First edition of this discussion of Islamic teachings and the life of Muhammad by Emperor John Kantakuzenos. Both works are rather clean; worming (especially near beginning and end of the volume) has been professionally repaired. Binding somewhat rubbed and bumped as well as wormed. A similar binding is described in the "Festschrift Otto Schäfer", p. 434: both bear the initials of Placidus Hieber, abbot (1640-78) of Lambach monastery and famous not only for the Baroque splendour of his rule, but also for his death (he was poisoned by his cook). Rare: the last copy in the trade was that in the Burrell collection (sold at Sotheby's, Oct 15, 1999). I: VD 16, ZV 18456. Adams M 1889 (?). BM-STC German 479. Graesse IV, 43. Cf. Göllner 1792-93 and Benzing, Luther, 2766-68 (variants); Enay 102 (2nd ed: Basel 1550). - II: VD 16 J 376. Adams J 261. IA 131.339. Göllner 802.

        De humani corporis fabrica libri septem. Basel, (Johannes Oporinus, June 1543).

      1543. Folio (428 x 282 mm). Woodcut title-page depicting a lecture hall with the dissection of a corpse, woodcut portrait of Vesalius (aged 28) with a dissected arm on *6v, woodcut initials (depicting cherubs conducting dissections or robbing graves), woodcut illustrations (some full-page), woodcut and letterpress double-sided folding plate at m3, with another sheet signed m3, woodcut and letterpress folding plate at p4, woodcut printer's device on final verso. Early 18th-c. speckled calf with contemp. marbled pastedowns and later endpapers, spine with raised bands marked by double gilt fillets, red morocco lettering-piece, edges speckled but retaining contemporary title lettered on foot of text-block. Modern slipcase. First edition of the most famous anatomical work ever published. - With the publication of "De humani corporis fabrica" (when he was only twenty-eight) Vesalius revolutionised both the science of anatomy and how it was taught. In his preface, he describes his disappointing experiences as a student in Paris and Louvain, stating his intention to reform the teaching of anatomy by giving in this book a complete description of the structure of the human body and thereby drawing attention "to the falsity of Galen's pronouncements". Vesalius also broke with tradition by performing dissections himself instead of leaving this task to assistants: the striking and dramatic title-page illustration shows him conducting such a dissection, his hand plunged into a female cadaver (striking in itself, as only the cadavers of executed criminals could be legally dissected and female criminals were rarely executed), surrounded by a seething mass of students. - The "Fabrica" is also revolutionary for "its unprecedented blending of scientific exposition, art and typography" (Norman). Vesalius took great care with every aspect of his book: his letter to Joannes Oporinus, reproduced in the prefatory matter (*5r-v), discusses the layout of the book, the system of reference between text and image, and the delivery of the woodcut blocks. The numerous and elegant illustrations, including the title-page and the frequently disarming woodcut initials, were entrusted to Jan Stephan van Calcar (1499-1546), a student of Titian who had also worked on Vesalius's "Tabulae anatomicae sex" of 1537-38. The beauty and accuracy of these woodcuts led to frequent piracy, despite Vesalius's attempts to protect his work with various privileges (as stated at the foot of the title-page). - B2-5 and 3-4 transposed. Light dampstaining to upper corner of textblock. Title-page very slightly soiled with a few small holes (one affecting image) and laid down; a few small marginal paper repairs (that on Q5 touching image but without loss). A few small abrasions and repairs on lower cover; extremities repaired; small tear to head of spine. A tall copy. PMM 71. VD 16, V 910. Cushing VI.A.1. Eimas 281. Norman 2137. Wellcome 6560. Graesse VI, 288.

Prima edizione di questo dialogo-disputa teologica tra un cattolico ed un eretico-luterano. L'autore, filosofo agostiniano morto nel 1553, fa muovere al luterano sottili e profonde obiezioni alla dottrina cattolica tanto che Rénouard scrive: ''Je suis très étonné que ce livre n'ait pas été mis à l'Index, il est au contraire muni des approbations et permissions.'', l'opera è infatti preceduta dalla dedica a Paolo III. Ottimo esemplare, con tre importanti ex-libris (collez. Aldina Valentini, e due altri).

        CHRONICA DI GIOVANNI CARIONE CON MIRABILE ARTIFICIO COMPOSTA. Nella quale comprendesi il computo de gli anni, i mutamenti ne i regni e nella religione, et altri grandissimi successi. Nuovamente tradotta in volgare per Pietro Lauro modonese.

      (Per Michele Tramezino il Vecchio), 1543. Prima edizione italiana. Opera dedicata ad Andrea Pisani. Cm.15x9,8. Pg.(32), 334 numerate solo al recto, (2). Legatura in mz.pelle con titoli in oro al dorso. Piatti decorati in policromia. Piccolo restauro cartaceo e spellature al frontespizio. esemplare rifilato. Marca tipografica con figura femminile con libri e paesaggio sullo sfondo. In alto, in festone, l'indicazione "Sibilla". L'erudito tedesco Johannes Carion, nome italianizzato Giovanni Carione (Bietigheim, 1499 - Berlino, 1538), fu astrologo, medico, matematico e stroriografo. Docente di matematica a Frankfurt, scrisse alcune "Effemeridi che si distendono dal 1536 al 1550", e le "Practicae astrologicae", testi di forte impronta astrologica. La "Chronica", una sorta di "summa" di storia universale, costituisce il suo testo più conosciuto, e la presente costituisce la prima edizione italiana. > Scifoni, "Dizionario biografico universale", I, 836, "Ma egli debbe particolarmente la sua nominanza alla "Cronica" che porta il suo nome benché sia opera di Melantone suo discepolo, che mal soddisfatto del primo lavoro del suo maestro, la rifece interamente e la pubblicò a Wurtemberga nel 1531. Nel tempo medesimo Carion stampava la sua "Cronica". Le due opere ebbero diversi traduttori. Ermanno Bonn fece una versione latina della cronica di Melantone, e J. Leblond tradusse in francese quella di Carion". Adams, I, C-722. Graesse, II, 47. Brunet, I, 1578, non segnala la presente traduzione italiana, ma annota, "La Chronique connue sous le nom de Carrion est aujourd'hui entièrement délaissée, mais elle a eu pendant plus d'un siècle un si grand succès, surtout parmi les protestants, que Dommerich, dans son "Epistola de Johannis Carionis chronica", impr. en 1750, dir en avoir vu 28 éditions; et il en existe certainement un plus grand nombre". Opera non presente in SBN, che censisce solo la seconda edizione italiana del 1548, con le aggiunte sulla "guerra belgica" del 1548, sempre per i tipi del Tramezino. Codice libreria 134709.

        Uomo e donna nudi (Adamo ed Eva)

      1543. Xilografie, 1543 circa. Tratte dal De humani corporis fabrica librorum Epitome, di Andrea Vesalio. Bellissime prove, impresse su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nello stesso anno della sua opera principale, il Vesalio pubblica l'Epitome, una sorta di sommario al De humani corporis fabrica, composto da 12 pagine di testo ed 11 silografie. Alcune tavole provengono dall'opera precedente, mentre altre, come queste due, sono ridisegnate, alquanto più grandi. La loro funzione era quella di costituire un punto di riferimento per tutte le immagini. Sembra che le due figure simboleggino l'intera umanità, come le statue di Adamo ed Eva nei portali delle cattedrali gotiche o quelle di Antonio Rizzo nel Palazzo Ducale di Venezia. Il Vasari attribuisce le tavole dell'opera a Jan Stephan van Calcar, pittore ed incisore fiammingo, che aveva studiato a Venezia con Tiziano, del quale fu anche allievo. Tuttavia queste due xilografie, che si differenziano notevolmente dalle altre, rappresentano una vera incognita per chi studia l'opera del Vesalio. Edizione tedesca del 1706. Woodcuts, about 1543. Taken from De humani corporis fabrica libri septem by Andreas Vesalius. Beautiful proofs, printed on contemporary laid paper, in excellent condition. In the same year of his major work, the Vesalius publishes the Epitome, a table of contents to De humani corporis fabrica, consisting of 12 pages of text and 11 woodcuts. Some plates come from the work above, while others, like these two, are redesigned somewhat larger. Their function was to serve as a point of reference for all images. It seems that the two figures symbolize the whole of humanity, like the statues of Adam and Eve in the portals of Gothic cathedrals or those of Antonio Rizzo in the Doge's Palace in Venice. Vasari attributes the plates to Jan Stephan van Calcar, Flemish painter and engraver, who had studied in Venice with Titian, who was also a student. However, these two woodcuts, which differ greatly from each other, represent a real unknown to those who study the work of Vesalius. German edition of 1706. Muraro & Rosand, Tiziano e la silografia veneziana del Cinquecento, pp. 123/133, 73&74. Dimensioni 212x422.

Dibdin notes that in this edition ? Platter's third ? there is an altered phrase "which, as it not only alters the sense, but destroys it, is undoubtedly an error of the press." The text also contains => an engraved title-page depicting the symbols of the four apostles and a full-page engraving of Saint Paul. Evidence of Readership: Underlining and marginal notes in Latin in two different hands; one or two words also appear => actually to have been excised from the book of Matthew. Provenance: Unidentified bookplate on front pastedown and signature of F.J. Schvvarz on title-page verso; later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding: 16th-century alum-tawed pig skin over beech boards, covers elaborately tooled in blind using a wide roll featuring religious figures, double fillets, and stamps of a rose and an acorn with evidence of two brass clasp; all edges stained red. => Searches of OCLC and NUC locate no copies of this New Testament in U.S. Libraries.

        Il combattimento delle amazzoni

      1543. Bulino, 1543, datato e monogrammato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Perin del Vaga. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, leggere abrasioni nel margine bianco, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. La composizione, ritenuta dal Bartsch invenzione di Raffaello o di Giulio Romano, deriva dal foglio di Perin del Vaga raffigurante il combattimento delle amazzoni conservato al Louvre e noto come Teseo e le Amazzoni. La scena è una delle dieci rappresentazioni intagliate su cristallo da Giovanni Bernardi che adornano la Casetta Farnese, oggi al museo di Capodimonte di Napoli. Rispetto al disegno del Perin, l'opera di Enea Vico è molto più ricca di particolari e interpretata in maniera del tutto personale. L'artista raggiunge con questa incisione un risultato bizzarro, complicato da arbitrari usi della luce alternati da ombre scure e zone appena tratteggiate al bulino. Il risultato è un effetto teatrale altamente suggestivo e tipicamente manierista. Opera rara e ricercata. Engraving, 1543, monogrammed and dated in plate lower center. After Perin del Vaga. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, light abrasions in the white margin, otherwise in excellent condition. The composition, which is considered by Bartsch invention by Raphael or Giulio Romano, is derived from the drawing by Perin del Vaga depicting the battle of the Amazons in the Louvre and known as Theseus and the Amazons. The scene is one of the ten representations of crystal carved by Giovanni Bernardi adorning the house Farnese, now in the Capodimonte Museum in Naples. Compared to the design of Perin, Enea Vico's work is much richer in detail and interpreted in a personal way. The artist achieves this result engraving a bizarre, complicated by arbitrary use of light alternating with dark shadows and areas just dashed to the punch. The result is a theatrical and evocative typically mannerist. Bartsch XV, p. 287, 14; Massari, Tra Mito ed Allegoria, p. 262, 100. Dimensioni 280x205.

Philonis Judaei Alexandrini, libri [1] Antiquitatum. [2] Quaestionum et solutionnum in genesin. [3] De essaeis. [4] De nominibus Hebraicis. [5] De Mundo. Basel, Adam Petri, 1527. First Latin edition of the Qur'an and the second edition in any language (after Paganino's Arabic edition, Venice, 1537/38, which survives in a single proof copy), complete with the extensive commentaries (many attempting to refute Islamic teachings) and historical additions in parts 2 and 3. The text is based primarily on an Arabic manuscript acquired by Pierre de Cluny and Bernard de Clairvaux in Toledo in the 12th century. De Cluny had it translated into Latin by the Englishman Robert of Ketton (sometimes called Robert of Kent and perhaps the same as Robert of Chester), also in Toledo, who completed his translation in 1143. Martin Luther acquired a copy of Ketton's 400-year-old translation and had Theodor Bibliander edit and publish it. In addition to Ketton's Latin translation, Bibliander also consulted three other manuscripts for comparison. Although the text is now known to contain many errors, it was a remarkable pioneering effort to make the text of the Qur'an available among Western scholars. It long remained nearly the only source for any European who wished to study the Qur'an, whether out of interest in Islamic culture or (more often) out of an interest in fighting the influence of Islam. - Fearing the publication of the Qur'an would raise a storm of controversy, the Basel authorities seized the printed sheets and the type used to print them on 1 July 1542 and arrested Oporinus on 30 August. He was soon released, however, and Luther and Melanchthon tried to convince the authorities to allow publication. On 7 December, the Basel council agreed on condition that neither the place of publication nor the printer be named, that Luther add a preface, and that the book be sold only in Wittenberg. Part 2 contains a compilation of earlier writings about Islam and the Quran, some printed in Greek and Latin parallel texts, including writings by Savonarola and Nicolaus Cusanus. The third part contains writings about the Ottomans, Islam, and Tamerlane's Mongolian invasion. - Many of the printing types were cut by Peter Schoeffer the younger. The roman is a northern variant of the pre-Aldine "Venetian" style, and had been in use for decades, but the two italics used in the preliminaries broke with tradition by having not only the lowercase but also the capitals sloped. After one unsuccessful precursor this idea was introduced with the larger of these types in 1537 and quickly spread, gradually driving out the Aldine-style italics with upright capitals (the present Qur'an still uses an italic with upright capitals in the shoulder notes). - The USTC follows VD16 in distinguishing 6 different versions of what is probably a single edition, with various permutations of a few variations [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Histoire de la decouverte et de la conquete du Perou. Traduite de l'Espagnol...par S.D.C.

      Early French printing of this very successful Peruvian history, which went through numerous editions in languages including Spanish, Italian, Dutch, German, and English. Zárate arrived in Peru as part of the retinue of the first viceroy, and served there from 1543 until 1548. His work was first printed in its original Spanish in 1555, but did not appear in French until 1700; the present translation was done by S. de Broë, Seigneur de Citry et de la Guette. The first volume is illustrated with an oversized folding map and fourteen engraved plates, including the well known depiction of a nattily dressed European gentleman, reclining on a raft-like cushion, borne across a stream by two Indians. Married set: The two contemporary bindings are similar but not identical; both are of mottled leather, one more coarsely grained (and acid-etched) than the other, while one has floral and the other pomegranate motifs gilt-stamped in spine compartments. The match was made by a previous, Spanish-speaking collector, who has left pencilled notes in Spanish in both volumes.

Printing and the Mind of Man notes that "it is no exaggeration to say that from its publication until well into the seventeenth century . . . all botanical studies were based on this book, and the greater part of any new botanical matter published during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries was in the form of a commentary on Dioscorides.

        La Ricchezze della Lingua Volgare

      Aldus, Venice 1543 - Vellum, backed in morocco with gilt-stamped lettering in brown and black leather spine labels; folio; 225, [1] ff; with Aldine anchor and dolphin device on title-page and last leaf. Some light scuffing along joints; upper board flaring slightly; hinge of last leaf strengthened. A remarkably bright, crisp text block. A rare dictionary of words and elegant phrases used in Boccaccio in the Decameron, and Dante -- still useful. Alunno, 15th century Italian mathematician and philosopher, is still held in high esteem for his two principal works: careful study of Petrarch, which is included in a volume of his poetry, and this work on the beauties of the Italian language. The author's study of Italian poets resulted in this alphabetical compendium of instructive and elegant phrases from the writings of Boccaccio and Dance. Renouard says the work was held in great esteem and had a great number of readers. Dedicated to cardinal Farnese, it is also the first use of the redesigned (the fifth) Aldine device, with a new border of botanical tendrils and four grotesque faces. Plimpton (15) cites only the reprint. Adams I, 842. Renouard 127. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        IL VIAZO DEL CLARISSIMO MESSER AMBROSIO CONTARINI AMBASCIATOR DELLA ILLUSTRISSIMA SIGNORIA DI VENETIA AL SIGNON UXUNCASSAN RE DE PERSIA

      Venice, 1543. 12mo. Modern half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt. Occasional very minor spots, some leaves expertly restored in lower margin, not affecting text. Leaf C3 bound before C2, leaf C7 bound before C6. A very good copy. The rare third edition of Contarini's account of his travels from Venice to Persia and Russia between 1473 and 1477. A member of a prominent Venetian family, the author was delegated by the republic, which at the time was at war with Mahomet II, to travel to the court of Hussum Hasan Bey, the sovereign of Persia. The purpose was to encourage that ruler to continue to wage war against the Ottomans, who were threatening Venetian interests in the Middle East and Europe. Unable to travel by sea, Contarini traveled by land through Poland to the Crimea, crossing the Black Sea and continuing to his destination through Mingrelia and Armenia. "Contarini encountered Hussum Hasan at Esfahan, accompanied him to Tabriz, and then returned homeward by way of Derbent and the Caspian Sea to Astrakhen. From there he ascended the Volga to Moscow, where he was politely received by the grand-duke of Muscovy. Contarini returned to Venice in 1477" - Howgego. First published in 1487, a second edition followed in 1524. In addition to this 1543 edition, the account was reprinted the same year with that of the Venetian traveler, Josafa Barbara. Confirming continuing interest in Contarini's travels throughout the Renaissance, the account was also included by Ramusio in his great collection of voyages and travels published between 1550 and 1559, and Antonio Minutio's collection of writings on Persia printed in Frankfurt in 1607. A rare edition of this early European account of travels to Persia and Russia. OCLC locates ten copies.

        POLYHISTOR, RERUM TOTO ORBE MEMORABILIUM THESAURUS LOCUPLETISSIMUS

      Basel, 1543. Woodcut vignette on titlepage and final leaf. Folio. 18th- century three-quarter calf and patterned paper boards, spine gilt, morocco label. Boards a bit bowed, spine slightly wormed. A few leaves very lightly tanned, two small worm holes in outer margin of final four leaves. Very good. Second edition, after the first of 1538. A landmark in the mapping of North America, this collection of geographic accounts, edited by Sebastian Münster, contains "the earliest representation of the north-west coast of America on a printed map" (Burden). It takes the form of a land mass in the upper right corner of the folding "Asia Major" map, extending northwest, labeled "Terra Incognita," and shown with a small bay, trees, and hills. The cartographer of the map is unidentified, though Wagner asserts that it was drawn by Münster. Julius Solinus (ca. 250 A.D.) was a Roman geographer of some repute. His POLYHISTOR... was first published by Nicholas Jenson in Venice in 1473, and Isingrin's edition of 1538 was the first to contain maps by Münster. Münster also added notes to the text containing up-to- date geographic information. Burden further notes that the Asia Major map shows one of the first delineations of a strait between Asia and America, some two hundred years before Bering's voyages to the region. It is also the first work to include a printed map of Asia as a whole. A significant work of geography, containing a seminal image of the northwest coast of North America.

        Arrest par lequel est p[ro]hibe et defendu a tous Prelatz/ Chapitres/Prieurs/Vicaires/ et administrateurs des Eglises de ne faire aucune exactions donne par la court de Parlement de Provence le dixneuviesme de Febvrier Mil cinq cens quarante troys

      n.p. (Bernard de Channey), Avignon 1543 - " 4to. ff. (iv). Lettre Batârde, varied woodcut initials (some with little portraits, others with foliate decoration), woodcut arms of the Duchy of Provence on the verso of final leaf. A few very light dampstains, an attractive well-margined copy with occasional contemporary marginalia, in modern boards by Laurenchet, spine gilt. A rare and early collection of five Provencal arrests, a searing condemnation of corruption in Aix. The first two are indictments of the financial and moral corruption of the clergy of Aix, and its convents, which, instead of administering 'le service divin ( ) se livre a des actes de paillardise non convenables a la devotion chretienne'. The next denounces the corruption of the merchants of Aix, whose monopolies led to the exploitation of the populace ('les grands officiers et majeurs mangent de la bonne chair et la populaire est mal servi'), with particular emphasis on the town's butcher (who sold dirty and diseased meat), and goes on to attack the general corruption and bribery in the region and the bureaucratic indifference which has allowed the corruption to continue ('le lieutenant general qui a la superintendence n'en tient compte et faict l'endormy'). The arret concludes 'il faut tout changer' and threatens heavy fines for future malefactors. The last two attack corruption among notaries and the resale of mortgages in the town. Unlike most legal works the engaging text is of a Rabelasian humour and directness, e.g. "l'avocat et procureur du Roy au siege sont esturdis d'une teste de veau". While a complete work in itself, this arrest may well originally have been bound up with other related works of coutumes, or legal customs of the various towns and regions of France, and indeed Fairfax Murray's copy was in just such a sammelband. Fairfax-Murray tentatively ascribes the work to Jean de Channey in Lyon, on the basis that in his copy, the present work was bound with that printer's 1536-1540 'Ordonnances'. This however, seems inadequate. De Channey was a printer of long standing in Avignon, but Baudrier, puts his date of death between 1536-8. It is therefore possible that his son, Bernard, who is known to have printed the title pages for the 'Ordonnances' in 1540 in order to sell them (cf. Betz, Répertoire bibliographique des livres imprimés en France, vol. 6), may have printed the present 'Arrest', often bound with the previous work. Fairfax-Murray 411 (pt 2); Brunet II, 388; cf. Baudrier X, 291; not in Graesse; one recorded copy only in France, at Grenoble. French" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        New Kreüterbuch

      Michael Isingrin, Basel 1543 - Folio, 444 leaves, +-++6, +++4, a-z6, A-Z6, Aa-Zz6, AA6, BB8. Gothic letter; woodcut printer's device on title and larger on final recto, full-page full length portrait of Fuchs on title verso, 517 botanical woodcuts (15 with old hand-colouring) by Viet Rudolph Speckle after Heinrich Füllmaurer and Albert Meyer, portraits of the three artists at end; historiated initials; light water stains and finger marking to some margins at beginning and end, small marginal flaw to ff. Ff4-Gg4, barely touching one illustration. A very good copy, partially hand-coloured in the printing shop, in contemporary pigskin over thick-wooden boards, blind-tooled, triple fillet; rolls of interlacing floral decorations, medallions, antiques, grape and vine leaves, central panel with flower bunches to corner and centre; original clasps; slightly rubbed, few small stains to spine and joints; on front pastedown, inscription by Joseph von Gullingstein, dated 27 April 1793, nineteenth-century label of the Bibljoteka Julinska, bookplates of the Squire Library and the Warren H. Corning Collection; on pastedown, seventeenth-century ex libris of &#145;Nobilis Francisci Fidelis&#146;, prospective graduate in medicine at Leiden University. First German edition of the most celebrated and beautiful herbal ever published, issued only a year after the princeps. Here, many mistakes were corrected and five additional woodcuts were inserted, namely those depicting &#145;Hunerbis&#146;, &#145;Spitziger Wegerich&#146;, &#145;klein Schlangen kraut&#146;, &#145;Knabenkrautweible&#146; and &#145;Kuchens chell&#146;. Leonhart Fuchs (1501-1566) was an eminent physician and botanist of the early German Reformation. After completing his medical studies in Ingolstadt and teaching in that university, he moved to Tübingen. There, he served Duke Ulrich of Württemberg and contributed massively to the reform of the local university, which became the first German institution of its kind to adopt a humanist and Lutheran programme. A plant and the colour fuchsia are named after him. Fuchs wrote many medical commentaries and treatises, though this herbal was by far his major achievement. As he explains in the preface of the work, he wished his own German translation to reach a broader audience than Latinate scholars and physicians, who had found in herbals a fundamental medical tool since Antiquity and the Middle Ages and hailed with enthusiasm the Latin first edition of the work. This time, Fuch&#146;s target was common people interested in the natural world and the popular remedies derived from them. The readers were provided with an index of illnesses treatable with herbs, so as to facilitate consultation. Fuchs's botanical descriptions are very accurate and mark a significant advancement in medical botany in respect of earlier somewhat crude herbals. This work dwells on over 400 German and 100 foreign plants, each with its own detailed illustration, and includes the first description of several recently-discovered American plants, such as pumpkin, chili pepper, snap bean and maize (mistakenly considered as a Turkish product). It was highly influential, with many reprints and translations into the main European vernaculars; its woodcuts were reused in all later editions, pirated several times and copied in the works of Hieronymus Bock, Rembert Dodoens, William Turner, amongst others. The drawings were made from life by Albert Meyer, largely relying on the plants carefully gathered by Fuchs in his garden in Tübingen. Heinrich Füllmaurer transferred the illustrations onto woodblocks, which were later cut by Viet Rudolph Speckle. The three artists received the then unique honour that their portraits were included in the book. Not in Durling or Heirs of Hyppocrates.
