Alunno, Francesco
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.

Contarini, Ambrogio
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. 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 An … [Click Below for Full Description]

Solinus, C. Julius
Basel: Michael Isingrin, 1543. [20],230,[2]pp. plus two folding maps and eighteen in- text maps. 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 M�nster, 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 M�nster. 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 M�nster. M�nster 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. BURDEN 11.

Rojas, Fernando de
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. Pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

RICCI (Michele)
In Vinegia. Appresso Vincenzo Vaugris al segno d'Erasmo, 1543. FIRST EDITION of this translation. 8vo, 156 x 102 mms., foliated, 90, [6], with contemporary name on title-page , printer's ornament on title-page and repeated on verso of last leaf but two, contemporary or slightly later calf, with panels in blind on each cover, with initials "W S" within panels, green morocco label with spine and label neatly restored and laid down; no front paste-down end-paper,some slight soiling of title-page and next leaf, but a very good to fine copy. Michele Riccio (1445 - 1515) was a historian, jurist, and an ambassador, a disciple of Pietro Pietro Summonte. The text of his lives of various European kings and rulers is preceded by a preface written by the translator, Marco Antonio Giustiniano. It is possible that the volume belonged to William Seymour (1588 - 1660). The same initial appear on a copy of Musica Transalpina (1588) at the Folger Shakespeare Library, but on a more elaborate binding. In his book-length study Patrons and Musicians of the English Renaissance (1981), the scholar David C. Price [no relation] suggests that "the initials 'W. S.' stamped on the Folger copy of Musica transalpina [might imply] that it belonged to the William Seymour who married Lady Arabella Stuart, a ward of the Talbots, in 1610." The William Seymour to whom David Price refers was the son of Lord Beauchamp, and was later the 2nd Duke of Somerset. The Wikipedia entry on Seymour asserts that he was a scholar.

Third edition, showing the beautiful Hebrew types introduced in the second edition (1543), of Robert Estienne's handy little guide to Hebrew, intended mainly as a primer for scholars learning the language but especially valuable today as a specimen of his types. The book's pages progress from right to left, as in a Hebrew book. It includes complete alphabets of the meruba Hebrew and the smaller rabbinical Hebrew.Robert Estienne (ca. 1503-1559), the greatest scholarly printer and publisher of the French golden age, worked at Paris from 1526 to 1550 and at Geneva from 1550 to 1559. He published a combined guide to Greek and Hebrew in 1528, but expanded both parts for separate publication in 1539. The 1539 Alphabetum Hebraicum introduced the present rabbinical Hebrew type, but its meruba Hebrew was a rather poor type that he abandoned in the second edition (1543), where he introduced three new meruba Hebrews, all used again in the present edition. All three were cut in-house for Estienne ca. 1539-1542 by Jean Arnoul, also known as Picard le jeune (ca. 1510/15?-ca. 1545).
