        New Kreüterbuch

      Basel: Michael Isengrin, 1543. Folio (377 x 242 mm). Woodcut printer's device on title, large Isengrin device on final recto, full-page woodcut portrait of Fuchs on title verso, 517 botanical woodcuts by Viet Rudolph Speckle after Heinrich Füllmaurer and Albert Meyer, woodcut portraits of the three artists at end, woodcut historiated initials in several sizes. Contemporary German blindstamped pigskin over pasteboard. Ties lacking, some minor wear at extremities, a few small repairs; title and final leaf with very minor fingersoiling, tiny wormhole in lower margins of second half of volume occasionally touching extreme lower image. Provenance: purchased from Sandbergs Bokhandel, 1962. FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN OF 'PERHAPS THE MOST CELEBRATED AND MOST BEAUTIFUL HERBAL EVER PUBLISHED' (PMM), with amendments and an additional 5 woodcuts not present in the Latin edition published the previous year as De Historia stirpium. The plates were printed from the same blocks, though the captions and numbering have been changed, many mistakes were corrected and five additional woodcuts were inserted, namely those depicting 'Hunerbis', 'Spitziger Wegerich', 'klein Schlangen kraut', 'Knabenkrautweible' and 'Kuchens chell'. Fuchs was an eminent physician and botanist of the early German Reformation who after completing his medical studies in Ingolstadt and teaching in that university, moved to Tübingen, where he served Duke Ulrich of Württemberg. Here he contributed greatly to the reform of the local university, which became the first German institution of its kind to adopt a humanist and Lutheran program. His reputation became immortalized with a plant name-and the color fuchsia itself-being named for 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. Fuchs realized that his own herbal could provide that knowledge not only to the specialist but also to the layman interested in plants and the popular remedies derived from them, or simply interested in the natural world surrounding him. In preparing the German edition Fuchs took the opportunity to augment his text with an index of illnesses treatable with herbs, enhancing its usefulness and popular appeal. Fuchs's botanical descriptions are very accurate and mark a significant advancement in medical botany in respect of earlier somewhat crude herbals. This work describes 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 thought by Fuchs to originate in Turkey). 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 unprecedented honor of having their portraits included in the book. Adams F-1107; Cleveland Collections 62; Nissen BBI 659; Pritzel 3139; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1910. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

        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). - 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. Binding rubbed; extremeties bumped with chipping to spine-ends. A wide-margined copy. Provenance: 1677 ownership of the pharmacist and medical student Joseph Franz König on front pastedown; later in the library of Bonifacius Brix von Wahlberg, court physician to the Princes of Fürstenberg, in the later 18th century (his ownership on the title page). VD 16, Y 11. Adams I 14. BM-STC German 932. GAL I, 233 & S 417. Durling 4778. Choulant, Handb. p. 347. Not in Waller.

        La Ricchezze della Lingua Volgare

      Venice: Aldus, 1543. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+. 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.

Arien[sis]". Rebacked with the original backstrip laid down.

      Adams R448; BMC STC French, p. 256; for Pithou: NBG XL, cols. 345-346. First edition of a collection of 15 classical and mediaeval school texts on the art of rhetoric, in a rare 16th-century French prize binding from Aire-sur- la-Lys, in the French department Pas-de Calais, on the border of French Flanders and Artois. Although most of these works had been published before in some form, the present collection was based on an unpublished manuscript. It therefore provided an independent source for these works as well as bringing them together in one convenient volume for students. The manuscripts edited here came from the library of the celebrated French lawyer, humanist and scholar François Pithou (1543-1621), a pupil of Cujas and later attorney-general at Troyes. He is believed to have edited the texts himself for the present publication.With 2 owners' names and 2 bookplates. In very good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving generous margins, with marginal water stains in a few leaves, reaching the text in 1 quire. Binding rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down, slightly rubbed and with superficial cracks, traces of 2 pair of leather ties. A 1599 collection of works on rhetoric, taken from a previously unpublished manuscript.

        DUODECIM CAESARES (THE TWELVE CAESARS) Ex Erasmi recognitione, with JOANNIS BAPTISTAE and index

      Paris Simon de Colines 1543 - Handsome Erasmus edition. 8vo. 160 x 100mm. Early calf boards recently rebacked in tan calf, gilt titles to the spine. In very good condition. Engraved title page vignette and numerous decorative woodcut initials. Private secretary to Hadrian, Suetonius's account of the life of twelve Caesars is racy and gossip filled, but has become a primary source for scholars of the Roman period. Caesars are Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Calligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian. Suetonius's "Lives of the Caesars" was held in such high esteem, that, shortly after 1500AD, as printing became more commonplace, no fewer than eighteen editions had been published. Erasmus, a noted scholar, particularly of classic Latin texts, published his edition of Suetonius with the purpose, he stated in his original preface, of encouraging rulers "to order their lives and habits as if in a mirror" (1518). Simon de Colines, credited with creating the italic font, first published Erasmas's Suetonius in 1527 with his rabbit pressmark - this edition has his later satyr pressmark. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

And from that tyme is added a continuacion of the storie in prose to this our tyme, now first imprinted, gathered out of diverse and sondery autours and have write of the affaires of Englande

      London: Richard Grafton, 1543. FIRST EDITION. Text in black letter, title within architectural woodcut border, woodcut initials, separate divisional title within architectural woodcut border. Eighteenth-century full calf, rebacked, edges rubbed; some small wormholes in the text and on the fore-edge, but generally an excellent copy. Three bookplates: (1) From the library of George Thomas Robinson (British architect, 1829-1897), with his engraved armorial bookplate with motto "Virtute non verbis"; (2) engraved armorial bookplate of George Arnold ("One of the gentlemen of his Majesty's most honorable privy chamber); and (3) Charles Edward Harris St. John (1843-1917). First edition of this acclaimed chronicle in verse, the first of two editions printed in the same month and year. Our copy contains the passage relative to Edward IV on the verso of Fol. V of the Continuation: "for the kyng was a man that loued bothe to see and feele a fayre woman." Though the later edition contains a more full account of the reign of Henry VIII, this passage as well as the cause of the quarrel between Edward IV and the Earl of Warwick was suppressed. The Chronicle covers the history of Britain and England from its mythical foundation by the Greek princess Albina and her twenty-nine sisters to the end of Henry VI's minority. Among other things, Hardyng details the origins of British history in the myth of Troy and the subsequent founding of empires by those escaping the doomed city. The work is also one of the best sources for information on King Arthur, mingling historical narrative with aspects of the myth of the Round Table and Holy Grail. Indeed, apparently Hardyng's Chronicle is one of the major sources of Sir Thomas Malory's Morte d'Arthur. "Hardyng's work offers a compelling insight into late medieval perceptions of kingship and governance on the cusp of the Wars of the Roses, and captures the tastes, hopes, and anxieties of a late fifteenth-century gentleman who had witnessed, and all too often participated in, each of the key events that defined his era." Harding (1378-1465), an ex-soldier and spy of Henry V, spent years writing and re-writing his verse history to accommodate swings in political power and patronage. As a boy he entered the service of Sir Henry Percy (Hotspur), and later went on to serve in the Battle of Agincourt (1415) and in the sea-fight before Harfleur (1416). He also provided documents to support English claims over the crown of Scotland, many of which were later shown to be forgeries. STC, 12767.

        Hecatomgraphie, c'est à dire les descriptions de cent figures & hystoires, contenans plusieurs apophthegmes, proverbes, entences & dictz tant des Anciens, que des modernes.

      Paris, Denis Janot, 1543. ____ Ravissant livre d'emblèmes, le second en français après le 'Théâtre des bons engins' de Guillaume de La Perrière. Il est illustré par 100 bois gravés. Les plus nombreux sont exécutés au simple trait, "avec une suprème élégance" (Brun) marquant nettement l'influence de Geoffroy Tory. Ces vignettes sont dans quatres cadres différents à rinceaux, déjà employés pour le 'Théâtre des bons engins'. Troisième édition illustrée, la plus belle. Brunet écrit que cette édition "a le même nombre de feuillets que la première, mais elle est plus belle que la première de 1540". On comprend la rareté de tels ouvrages aujourd'hui quand on lit l'épitre au lecteur de Corrozet : "Ainsi pourront imagiers et tailleurs / peintres, brodeurs, orfèvres, émailleurs / prendre en ce livre aucune fantaisie / comme ils le feraient d'une tapisserie." "Ce passage nous montre quelle était la destination de ces receuils d'emblèmes que les imprimeurs de Paris et Lyon faisaient graver à si grands frais ; il explique en même temps leur extrême rareté, les artisans qui s'en servaient comme de modéle les ayant promptement détruits. Les vers de Gilles Corrozet sont écrits d'un style simple et facile, qui fait de l'Hecatomgraphie un des meilleurs, sinon même le meilleur ouvrage du genre." (Picot, Catalogue Rothshild 640). Le catalogue de Harvard décrit plus ou moins bien plusieurs éditions ou tirages en 1543, sans priorité. Celui-ci est en lettres rondes et avec un M à Hecatomgraphie. Très bel exemplaire.***** This charming emblem book is iIlustrated with 100 woodcuts framed by four-part borders of four different designs. This is the second emblem book in French after the 'Théâtre des bons engins' de Guillaume de La Perrière. According to Brunet, this third edition is the more beautifull. The woodcuts are executed with supreme elegance, clearly showing influence of Geoffroy Tory. Mortimer, Harvard 282 describes, more or less, two editions and two issues of this 1543 edition, without priority. This one with an M in Hecatomgraphie and roman font for verse legends. In-8. Collation : (104) ff. Maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs, tranches dorées. (Reliure du XIXe, Chambolle-Duru.).

        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)
