        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]

        Libelli duo. Vnus, de supplemento Almanach. Alter, de Restitutione temporum & motuum coeslestium. ITem Geniturae LXCII, insignes casibus & fortuna, cum expositione

      apud Io. Petreium, Nuremberg 1543 - 67 ASTROLOGICAL CHARTS FIRST EDITION. 4to. ff [110 ] A-Z4, aa-cc4, 2d6. (lacking final blank). Roman letter, some Greek. Fine woodcut portrait of the author within roundel on title, white on black historiated initials in various sizes, woodcut tables, small woodcut diagrams and 67 astrological charts, occasional early underlings and marginal notes. Minor restorations to upper and lower margins of title, just touching a few letters, and lower margin of first few ll, worm trail expertly restored in lower blank margin, blank lower outer corner of last leaf restored, title page slightly dusty, the odd thumb mark. A good copy in slightly later vellum over boards Rare first edition of Cardano’s work on the fundamentals of astronomy for astrologers and the determination of the correct length of the solar, tropical, and sidereal years, followed by an extraordinary section of 67 horoscopes, chiefly of famous people. 'Sometime around 1540, the Nuremberg publisher Johann Petreius approached Giralamo Cardano to prepare a new edition of two astrological treatises by the Italian polymath. The first of these tracts ‘De supplemento almanach’, called for greater sophistication in the use of planetary ephemerides by teaching practitioners to inspect the heavens for themselves. Its complement entitled ‘De temporum et motum erraticarum restitione’, focused on the observational correction of planetary parameters. Cardano was out of his depth in accomplishing this last goal, but the new German editions of these works brought him great fame anyway. This success derived in no small part from his decision to append a series of remarkable genitures to his booklet. By 1543, a sizeable collection of 67 birth charts had begun to dwarf the original content of the ‘libelli duo’. Cardano’s German horoscope collection benefited strongly from two local developments: on the one hand, a preoccupation with the collecting of celebrity genitures in the volatile diplomatic context of the Holy Roman Empire; on the other, Philip Melanchthon’s promotion of astrology as a key component of Lutherian higher education.' ‘Horoscopes and public spheres’: essays on the history of astrology edited by Günther Oestmann. The work is dedicated to Cardano’s Milanese friend and Patron, Filippo Archinto. The nativities or horoscopes are very curious. Among them are the horoscopes, each with a lengthy exposition, of Petrarch, Luther, Cicero, Erasmus, Dürer, Vesalius, Charles V, Francois I, Fazio Cardano, Archinto and his other patrons, and even his own. He also, interestingly, includes horoscopes of the towns of Venice, Bologna and Florence from the date of their establishment. 'Cardano wrote more than 200 works on medicine, mathematics, physics, philosophy, religion, and music. His was the universal mentality to which no branch of learning was inaccessible. Even his earliest works show the characteristics of his highly unstable personality: encyclopedic learning, powerful intellect combined with childlike credulity, unconquerable fears and delusions of grandeur. In 1570 Cardano was imprisoned by the Inquisition. He was accused of heresy, particularly for having cast the horoscope of Christ and having attributed the events of his life to the influence of the stars. After a few months in prison, having been forced to recant and to abandon teaching, Cardano went to Rome, where he succeeded in obtaining the favor of Pope Pius V, who gave him a lifetime annuity' (DSB). Cardano admitted he was no saint, describing himself in his autobiography as 'hot tempered, single minded, given to women, cunning, crafty, sarcastic, diligent, impertinent, sad, treacherous, magician, sorcerer, miserable, hateful, lascivious, obscene, lying, obsequious, and fond of the prattle of old men.' He predicted the exact date of his death, and to be certain that he was correct, on the day in question, he abstained from nourishment to help matters along in a kind of gentle suicide.

      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 ‘Nobilis Francisci Fidelis’, 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 ‘Hunerbis’, ‘Spitziger Wegerich’, ‘klein Schlangen kraut’, ‘Knabenkrautweible’ and ‘Kuchens chell’. 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’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.

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 Quran and the second edition in any language (after Paganino's Arabic edition, Venice, 1537/38, which survives in only 1 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 Qurán available and readable 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 name of the city nor that of the printer be stated, that Luther add a preface, and that the book would 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 [Attributes: First Edition]

        Celestina: Tragicocomedia di Calisto e Melibea

      Bernardino de Bendoni, Vinetia (Venice) 1543 - 16mo. CXIX (119) leaves. Contemporary full vellum, with handwritten title on spine. Engraved title page. Decorative initials. Early Venetian edition of "La Celestina" (as it is usually called after the leading character), a work entirely in dialogue which was originally published in 1499. Its author, Fernando de Rojas, was a descendant of converted Jews. He practiced law, and later in life, served as an alderman of Talavera de la Reina, an important commercial center near Toledo. The book is considered to be one of the greatest works of Spanish literature, and traditionally marks the end of medieval literature and the beginning of the literary renaissance in Spain. Although usually regarded as a novel, it is written as a continuous series of dialogues and can be taken as a play, having been staged as such and filmed. The story tells of a bachelor Calisto who uses the old procuress Celestina to start an affair with Melibea, an unmarried girl kept in seclusion by her parents. Though the two use the rhetoric of courtly love, sex not marriage is their aim. When he dies in an accident, she commits suicide. The name Celestina has become synonymous with procuress, especially an older woman used to further an illicit affair, and is a literary archetype of this character, the masculine counterpart being Pandarus. This work is delightfully illustrated with 17 woodcuts (including title), of which many are formed from the juxtaposition of five small distinct blocks portraying either a human figure or landscape feature. Vellum darkened. Previous owner's name in ink at lower margin of title. Corners of title page slightly chipped (not affecting text). Fore-edge of second leaf partly torn, thus slightly affecting text. Light water-staining at lower margin of last leaves. Text in Italian. Binding in overall fair to good, interior in good to good+ condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The text, which was translated into Latin by Jean Ruel and first printed in that translation in 1516, appears here almost entirely in italic with the index and some headers in roman; some shouldernotes are in Greek. 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.

        Valerius Maximus

      Parisiis: Ex officina Simonis Colinaei 16mo. 273, [15] ff.. 1543 This work, frequently called Dicta et facta memorabilia, presents historical anecdotes for students of rhetoric to use when embellishing speeches. These have been arranged into sections devoted to various virtues or vices that the narratives illustrate. Valerius Maximus (fl. C.E. 27), was well connected with the most prominent literary circles of the day and was a proponent of Roman supremism — his commentaries suggesting that, while the Romans of his day were a degenerate lot, they still far exceeded the other peoples of the world in morality. His language is more colorful and his anecdotes are less refined and sanitized than those of other writers of the era. Valerius was very popular in the Middle Ages, and his popularity continued through the 16th century. The editio princeps of Valerius was issued in Strassburg ca. 1470, with many other editions to follow. This is either the first or the second pocket edition issued by Colines: there is a reputed 24mo edition of 1533 in St. Catherine's College, Cambridge. Colines also issued issued this work in 1543 in octavo format. The "[t]itle is within the Colines's 'Figura architectonica' border" specifically designed for this series of 16mo Classics and the "[t ]ext [is] in italic, roman for headings and index; capital spaces with guide-letters" (Schreiber). Provenance: Engraved oval bookplate of Charles Abbott, Esq., of Lincoln's Inn. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only six copies in U.S. libraries. 19th-century tan calf in a plain style of the 16th century; all edges gilt and gauffered. Title-leaf dust-soiled. => A very good copy.

        ARNOBII DISPUTATIONUM ADVERSUS GENTES LIBRI OCTO. Nunc primum in lucem editi.

      A cura del bresciano Fausto Sabeo. Testo latino. Cm.30,7x21. Pg.(8), CII numerate solo al recto, (2). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tagli spruzzati. Esemplare ad ampi margini, con alcuni aloni. Vecchi restauri cartacei alle ultime due carte. Minime chiose manoscritte al frontespizio. La dedicatoria di Fausto Sabeo a Francesco Valesio riporta la data Settembre 1543, mentre al colophon è apposta la datazione "Romae, in aedibus Francisci Priscianensis, 1542". "Arnobio (Sicca Veneria, 255 ?" 327) fu un filosofo e scrittore romano, chiamato a volte "il vecchio" per distinguerlo da Arnobio il giovane, monaco del V secolo. Le scarse notizie biografiche provengono da San Girolamo ("Chronica ad annum; De viris illustribus, III, 79, 80; Lettera 58"), che afferma che Arnobio fu un retore pagano di Sicca Veneria, nell'Africa proconsolare, che avrebbe avuto per discepolo Lattanzio e avrebbe anche scritto contro la dottrina cristiana. Convertitosi alla fine del III secolo grazie a un sogno, chiese di ricevere il battesimo per poter far parte della comunità cristiana; allo scopo di superare i dubbi del suo vescovo sulla sincerità della conversione scrisse, dopo la fine del regno di Diocleziano (284 - 305) e prima dell'Editto di Milano (313), un'opera apologetica in sette libri, "Adversus gentes", poi intitolata, nel manoscritto più antico pervenutoci nel IX secolo, "Adversus nationes". Scritti per lettori ignari dei contenuti della fede cristiana, con lo stile del retore, letterario e anche ampolloso ma anche, quando occorre, ironico e realistico, i libri I e II espongono la divinità della figura di Cristo e della religione cristiana - che egli considera in accordo con le teorie dei migliori filosofi pagani, rilevando tendenze cristiane già in Platone - trattano una teoria dell'anima e ribattono le accuse dei pagani al cristianesimo di essere responsabile delle tragedie che colpiscono l'umanità; i libri III, IV e V attaccano la mitologia pagana, considerata contraddittoria e immorale, riportando preziose notizie su templi, riti e idoli; i libri VI e VII difendono i cristiani dalle accuse di empietà. Scarsi sono i riferimenti al Nuovo Testamento e sembra sorprendente la mancanza di citazioni dal Vecchio Testamento del quale non riconoscerebbe i presupposti al Nuovo; del resto, la sua concezione del Dio cristiano è del tutto estranea alla visione ebraica: deriva dall'epicureismo l'inaccessibilità indifferente fra esso, Deus summus, e tutte le altre creature, compresi gli altri dei, che per Arnobio esistono realmente ma sono subordinati al "Deus princeps". Una derivazione gnostico - platonica si nota nella sua concezione dell'anima, materiale e creata da un demiurgo (II, 36): l'uomo è un essere cieco che non conosce se stesso ma la convinzione dell'esistenza del divino è innata nell'anima, malgrado la sua materialità (I, 33) perché la rivelazione lo ha reso partecipe della sapienza divina, ed essa può pertanto raggiungere l'immortalità attraverso la grazia di Dio, mentre le anime dei dannati si dissolvono tra le fiamme dell'inferno (II, 32 e 61). Si critica comunemente Arnobio di non essere un autentico cristiano perché si formò in un ambiente pagano; in realtà il cristianesimo, allora e come avverrà nei secoli successivi, era in una fase di evoluzione ideologica che poteva svilupparsi solo utilizzando, adattate in parte, concezioni della cultura dominante, né esisteva un'ortodossia cristiana, per la mancanza di un'autorità unica riconosciuta che decidesse della legittimità delle varie interpretazioni dottrinali. Quello di Arnobio è dunque il cristianesimo di un erudito del III secolo, con una cultura necessariamente non cristiana, ma gnostica, platonica, stoica; il suo è, sostanzialmente, uno dei cristianesimi possibili nel suo tempo. Viene citato anche da Leonardo Sciascia nel romanzo "Candido", ovvero un sogno fatto in Sicilia del 1977" (da wikipedia).

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 Quran and the second edition in any language (after Paganino's Arabic edition, Venice, 1537/38, which survives in only 1 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 Quran available and readable 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 name of the city nor that of the printer be stated, that Luther add a preface, and that the book would 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 Einedar 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. - Ad 1: VD 16, K2584 (cf.

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

      Venice. 1543.. 40 leaves. 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.

        Opera di Andrea Fulvio dell antichita della Citta di Roma

      1543. ROME. Opera di Andrea Fulvio delle antichità della Città di Roma, & delli edificij memorabili di quella. Tradotta nuovamente di latino in lingua toscana, per Paulo dal Rosso cittadino Fiorentino. By Andrea Fulvio. 224, [8] ff. Small 8vo., 155 x 110 mm, bound in later full Italian vellum, title in manuscript on spine. Venezia: Michele Tramezino, 1543. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition in the vernacular of this important, early history of the city of Rome, translated from Fulvio's Latin edition of 1513. Fulvio's account of Rome, the classical antiquities, the private collections and the buildings as they survived at the beginning of the 1500s, is of the greatest historical significance. Fulvio's observations are recorded with a humanist's critical eye. The descriptions of private collections in Rome include the antiquities collection of Angelo Colocci and the numismatic collection of Cardinal Andrea Della Valle. The work has also been cited as the first true antiquarian topography of Rome. "Fulvius published the work under the guidance and instigation of Raphael, who had been charged by Pope Leo X to undertake a pictorial reconstruction of Ancient Rome. Fulvio was a friend of Raphael, Blondus and Laetus" (Kissner Catalogue 153). Andrea Fulvio (1470 - 1527), a Renaissance humanist, poet and antiquarian of Rome, advised Raphael in the reconstructions of ancient Rome and as possible settings for his frescoes. Fulvio was Raphael's cicerone as they explored the ruins of Rome, Fulvio showing Raphael what was essential to be drawn and extemporizing on them (cf: Bette Talvacchia, in Marcia B. Hall, ed. The Cambridge Companion to Raphael. Cambridge University Press 2005:184). Very fine copy. PROVENANCE: Marchese Giuseppe Arconati Visconti (1797-1883) with his crowned oval stamp at foot of title-page. Visconti was the owner of the famed Lombardian villa Castelazzo, designed by the Italian architect Giovanni Ruggeri and possessing the largest and most elaborate landscape gardens in Lombardy.

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

      Paris, Christian Wechel, 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 Vasse, 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).

Second complete edition of de Thou's history of his own time, covering the period 1543-1607 and an important source to France history during the Huguenot wars. It was first published in parts between 1606 and 1608. The first complete edition was published by Pierre Dupuy and Nicolas Rigault in 1620, three years after the death of de Thou, and of which this is the second printing. Part three also contains de Thou's autobiography, "Commentariorum de vita sua", published with its own title page on pp 1161 but with continued pagination. Part four is edited with a continuation to 1618. A third reprint was published in 1626-30. The best and largest edition was however published in London in 1733 by Samuel Buckley in seven folio volumes. Jacques August de Thou (1553-1617) was both a French statsman, president of the parliament and partly responsible for the Edict of Nantes, and a historian. He aim as such was to produce a scientific and precise history of France and he therefore chose to write it in latin, which he wrote in an elegant and animated style. He forbade translations to french. The first good translation to french was published in 16 volumes in 1734, based on the Buckley edition. The text was not without complications. His account in part two for the catholic massacre of protestants during the Bartolomew day was put on the Index for forbidden books in 1609
