        De vasculis libellus, adulescentulorum causa ex Bayfio decerptus, addita vulgari latinarum vocum interpretatione.

      Paris (Parisiis), Ex officina Roberti Stephani typographi Regii, 1543. (Colophon at the end: 'Excudebat Rob. Stephanus Typographus Regius, Parisiis, an. M.D.XLIII, XIII Cal. Oct.) 8vo. 52,(3 index),(1 blank) p. Half vellum (20th century) 17 cm (Ref: not in Renouard, 'Ann. de l'Impr. des Estienne', see however p. 58, 1543/12: 'Carolus Stephanus, De re Vestiaria, Vascularia et Navali, ex Bayfio. Addita vulgaris linguae interpretatione'; not in Brunet, Graesse, or Ebert) (Details: Printer's Olive tree device of the Stephanus family on the title, motto: 'Noli altum sapere', short for 'Noli altum sapere, sed time', in English 'Donot be high-minded, but fear'. (Epistola Beati Pauli ad Romanos 11,20) (Condition: The right upper corner of the first gathering slightly waterstained) (Note: The French diplomat, humanist and poet Lazare de Baïf, ca. 1496-1547, was born near La Flèche in Anjou. He wrote in Latin and translated from Greek into French. He translated the Electra of Sophocles which was printed in 1537 in Paris. He was abbot of Charroux and Grenetière, and counselor of the parliament of Paris. Around the year 1530 Baïf was sent to Venice as ambassador, where he fell in love with a woman of rank, with whom he had a son in 1532. The boy was named Jean-Antoine, the future poet of the Pléiade. Lazarus de Baïf, being of ecclesiastical orders, could of course not marry his mistress, but he recognized her son and legitimized him later. He took the boy to Paris where he gave him a worthy education. Some of his tutors were Dorat, a brilliant Hellenist and Latin scholar, and Charles Estienne, his friend and disciple. In 1526 De Baif published his first work in Basel De re vestiaria, which earned him a reputation among French scholars, as second in rank to Guillaume Budé. As a diplomat he continued his philological and archaeological studies, and corresponded with Erasmus, Bembo and many other humanists. 'His scholarly reputation rests squarely on his three Latin works: De re vestiaria of 1526 (...) De vasculis, Basel, H. Froben, 1531, (...) and finally De re navali, Paris, R. Estienne 1536' which was accompanied by illustrations derived from sketches of the pillar of Trajan and other monuments. (Contemporaries of Erasmus: A Biographical Register of the Renaissance and Reformation, Toronto 1985, p.87/88) In 1549 Robert Estienne posthumely published an edition of these works which were revised and expanded by the author. Charles Estienne rearranged de Baïfs works on naval matters, clothing and vases of the ancients for the use of young students. (Various editions between 1535 and 1537) The first 'school-edition' of the book on ancient vases came from the presses of Robert Estienne in 1536, and was repeated in Basel by Froben in 1537 and 1541. (De vasculis libellus, adulescentulorum causa ex Baysio decerptus. Addita vulgari Latinarum vocum interpretatione) In the preface to De Vasculis Charles Estienne tells the reader that not all (aliquot) studious young students (iuniores tyrunculi) could understand De Baif's work. (se non omnia intelligere quae in libello Bayfii de vasculis continerentur). Therefore, when he heard this, De Baif gave his friend permission to make a summary of his book. (facile passus est suum libellum in brevem quandam summulam contrahi) Charles Estienne 1504-1564, 'was an early exponent of the science of anatomy in France. Charles was a younger brother of Robert Estienne I, the famous printer, and son to Henri, who Latinized the family name as Stephanus' (...) After the usual humanistic training (Greek and latin classics) he studied medicine, and took his doctor's degree at Paris. He was for a time tutor to Jean-Antoine de Baïf, the future poet. It is uncertain whether he taught publicly. His career was interrupted by the oppressive persecutions in which their religious opinions involved the family. (Wikipedia s.v. Charles Estienne) Robert Estienne published De Baifs work on vases in the same year (1543) also accompanied by a French translation (See Renouard) § This 1543 edition seems to be rare. KVK records only a few copies worldwide) (Collation: a-c8, d4) (Photographs on request)

Iniziò la professione di notaio nella città natale, diventando in breve tempo conosciuto e stimato anche al di fuori del paese. Parallelamente si dedicò allo studio della grammatica italiana, fedele alla lezione del Bembo. Ebbe incarichi di governo in varie città, tra le quali Bagnacavallo, Reggio, Lucca e Genova. In seguito fece ritorno a Cento e riprese l'attività notarile, ma il suo impegno fu rivolto soprattutto agli studi filologici e grammaticali. Nel 1536 pubblicò "" La Grammatica Volgare "", stampata a Bologna presso Bonardo e Compagni, in seguito ristampata più volte. Ma l'opera più importante dell'Accarisi è il "" Vocabolario "", stampato in proprio nel 1543, del quale si ebbe una seconda edizione impressa a Venezia nel 1550. Tra i primi vocabolari della lingua italiana, fu uno dei più autorevoli e apprezzati, procurando elogi e fama all'Autore. Opera molto rara e filologicamente importante. Cfr.

        De chirurgica institutione libri quinque. His accessit sextus liber de materia chirurgica, authore Jacobo Hollerio Stempano [...]. Paris, Christian Wechel, 1543.

      1543. Folio (210 x 294 mm). (48), 421 pp., 1 leaf of errata, plus 2-leaf illustrated insert after p. 354 as called for. With 10 full-page woodcuts in text. Bound in contemporary vellum with endpapers skillfully renewed. Stored in custom-made half calf clamshell box. Rare first edition, and the only folio printing, of the author's chef d'oeuvre, published in the same year as "De corporis humani fabrica", the similarly grand production of his most famous pupil, Andreas Vesalius. Although lesser-known as a text than his student's groundbreaking masterpiece, Tagault's "De chirurgica institutione" provides an essential piece of the puzzle in understanding the context in which Vesalius came to break new ground. The book's publishing history uncannily mirrors that of "De fabrica", and several of its anatomical diagrams were in fact plagiarized from the "Tabulae sex" through a chain of events yet to be elucidated. - Although he cannot be held in the same light as his eminent pupil, Tagault was an important figure on the cusp of the Vesalian revolution. O'Malley calls him "one of the few members of the faculty actively interested in anatomical studies" (p. 425) and notes that he was performing public dissections as early as 1535, during the period in which Vesalius studied under him (cf. p. 58). O'Malley also notes a story to the effect that the anatomist Jacobus Sylvius - a successful instructor at the University of Paris, but also terribly jealous of Vesalius's rising star - was responsible for advising Tagault on stylistic changes to improve the presentation of his "De chirurgica institutione". - The five books of Tagault's treatise elaborate the writings of Guy de Chauliac (1300-68) on the surgical aspects of tumors, wounds, hernias, ulcers, fractures, and dislocations. 2 full-page woodcut figures ultimately based on Gersdorff show the wound-man and the extraction of an arrow on the battlefield; a further three, in fact plagiarized from the "Tabulae sex", are found on the two leaves inserted at p. 354 following Tagault's treatise, accompanied by numbered legends in Latin and Greek. The precise circumstances surrounding their appearance in this work are intriguing; their position suggests a late addition, perhaps in a nod to the growing popularity of his former student. According to Cushing, the four chief suspects in the transfer of the woodcuts are the anatomist Louis Vassé, the printers Charles Estienne and Christian Wechel, and Tagault himself. Moritz Roth (Andreas Vesalius Bruxellensis, 1892) indeed traced in detail the extent of the plagiarism and cross-flow of the woodblocks between successive editions of Tagault and Vesalius. - The sixth book contains the first appearance in print of Jacques Houiller's "De materia chirurgica", discussing and illustrating the tools of surgery in use during Vesalian times before Pare and Wurtz. - Like "De fabrica", later editions of "De chirurgica institutione" were issued only in reduced format to make the work more widely accessible; the present first edition is the only printing in folio, presenting its marvellous full-page woodcuts to full effect. The large number of editions which Tagault's text enjoyed during the 16th century certainly rivals that of Vesalius and perhaps suggests that the two texts might have competed on the European stage. - Unlike the first edition of "De fabrica", which is readily obtainable in commerce, we have not traced any copy of the first edition of "De chirurgica institutione" at Anglo-American or German auctions in the last 50 years. It is one of just two editions edited by Tagault himself and published during his lifetime; the second edition (1544) was a much less impressive (and far more commonly-encountered) octavo. - A very good copy, fresh and charming despite a very light dampstain to the upper blank margin of a few leaves. Cushing 27. Waller 9444 (lacking index). Not in the Wellcome. Heirs of Hippocrates 190 (the earliest edition noted being 1560).

        Iani Damasceni Decapolitani summae inter Arabes autoritatis medici, therapeutice methodi, hoc est, curandi artis Libri VII. partim Albano Torino Vitodurano paraphraste, partim Gerardo iatro Cremonensi metaphraste. Basel, Heinrich Petri, (March 1543).

      1543. Folio (205 x 290 mm). (24), 491, (1) pp. 17th century black-tinted vellum binding using an earlier liturgic musical manuscript. Important Latin edition of this Arabic medical compendium (first printed, also in Latin, in 1479), with additions by Gerard de Cremona. It provides a collection of opinions voiced by Greek and Arabic physicians on pathology and therapeutics. "No Arabic printed edition exists so far" (cf. Choulant). The third-century doctor Yahya bin Sarabiyun, son of a Bagarma physician, wrote his great medical work "Al-Kunnas" in Syriac, but it was soon translated into Arabic by scholars such as Musa Ibrahim al-Haditi and ibn Bahlul. There exist manuscripts in twelve and in seven books. "The seven-book edition was frequently printed in Latin translations as 'Breviarium' and 'Practica therapeuticae methodus'. Albanus Torinus, the editor of the Basel 1543 edition, called him Janus Damascenus, for which reason he has been confused with the well-known theologian of that name. He is also often mistaken for his younger namesake, Serapio junior" (cf. GAL I, 233). Some catalogues even ascribe this work to the Baghdad physician Abu-Zakariya Yuanna Ibn-Masawaih. - Slight waterstaining; some unobtrusive worming to upper cover and flyleaves.

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 (VD16 provides links to scans of 4 of them, and all 4 appear to be the same edition). The printing of the preliminary quires alpha and/or beta vary (some with the note to the reader under Melanchthon's name and others with it under Luther's name, with little or no change in the text) and some copies add an additional preliminary quire gamma containing Luther's preface, presumably the addition demanded by the Basel authorities. The present copy does not include the later quire gamma and it originally had the note to the reader under Luther's name. It is an interesting example of anti-Lutheran censorship, because the single preliminary leaf with this 2-page note to the reader, and 2 leaves in the preliminaries of part 3 with another text by Luther, have been removed and the references to them and to Luther on the title-page and other pages have been struck through. The word "pontificis" has also been erased on one page. - The present copy has the first edition of five short works by Philo of Alexandria, a Jewish philosopher in classical Greece, bound after the text of the Qur'an in volume 1 (the auxiliary material in parts 2 and 3 of the Qur'an is bound in volume 2). It includes a work about Hebrew names, perhaps considered valuable to scholars studying the Qur'an. - With 3 early owners' inscriptions on the title-page, 1 dated 1696 and at least 1 of the others probably earlier, occasional annotations in the text and a few words (mostly references to Luther) struck through. The binding appears to be late 18th-century. Blank leaves inserted between the 2 works in volume 1 are watermarked: crowned Bohemian (double-tailed) lion with a circle under each hind foot = I.F.[?], similar to Eineder 1096 (which has different initials and no circles), from Lower Austria, 1794. With a few worm holes in the gutter margin of the last few leaves of both volumes and occasional minor water stains or other minor blemishes. Otherwise in very good condition. The binding has some worm damage in the spine but is otherwise also very good. The first Latin edition of the Qur'an and the source for nearly all early Western Qur'anic studies.

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.

        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.

      (Per Michele Tramezino il Vecchio), In Venetia 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. 250 gr.

        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.

        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.
