ALARDUS, of Amsterdam
1543. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Alardus of Amsterdam was a 16th-century Dutch scholar known for his collection of writings and commentaries of church fathers such as Erasmus and Johannes Chrysostom. First published in 1539, 'Similitudines' and was unquestionably his most popular work mostly because of the extensive commentary of Erasmus, with whom he was personally quite close. Other important church fathers included in this work include Theophylact of Ohrid, Origen, Gregory of Nazianzus, Saint Basil the Great, Joannis Cassiani, Saint Cypriani, Pope Hilarius, Saint Jerome, Saint Ambrose, Saint Augustine, Pope Gregory the Great, Seneca the Younger, Lactantius, Saint Rupert of Salzburgh, and many others. This rare 1543 edition was published by Frellon in Lyon; though it does not appear in Adams. [Attributes: First Edition]

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). Although Picard's name is little known today, no doubt due in part to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alunno, Francesco.
[colophon: In casa de Figliuoli di Aldo], 1543. First edition of grammarian, calligrapher, and Petrarchan scholar Alunno's glossary of all the words used in the works of Boccaccio, with examples of their uses and citations to the works and pages wherein they are found, these => cross-referenced as often now is not noted with their uses in Dante, Petrarch, Amedo, and Philocolo. The prefatory matter includes letters to the reader from both the Aldine Press and the author, a dedication to Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, notes on the organization of the text, numerous finding aids (word lists of homophones, foreign cognates, proverbs, and Italian dialect words), and more. Renouard notes of the work's popularity that "dans son temps, fut en grande estime, et eut un grand nombre de lecteurs," which probably explains its reprinting in 1551, 1555, and 1557. Here, the Italian text is set in double columns using mostly italic and some roman type, with unaccomplished guide letters and catchwords; the iconic Aldine device appears within a foliate frame of four grotesques on the title-page and final text leaf. This is only the second appearance of this version of the device (B1), the first having been in Calepino's Dictionarium of 1542. Provenance: Ink signature of Janus Broukhusius appears on the title-page in an early hand; a.k.a. Joan van Broekhuizen, 1649-1707, he was a Dutch man of letters known for his poems in Latin. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Paris, Denis Janot, 1543. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : (104) ff. Reliure : Maroquin rouge, dos à nerfs, tranches dorées. (Reliure du XIXe, Chambolle-Duru.). ____ 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).

Froschauer, 1543. First edition of the Zurich Latin Bible based on Huldrych Zwingli and edited under the supervision of Leo Jud. A Latin translation of the Jewish canonical book was begun by Jud who worked over 18 years on this and it was completed after his death in 1542 by Theodor Bibliander. Apocrypha (incl. Esdras 3 & 4) are translated by Pierre Cholin, and the NT is based on the definitive 16th century translation by Erasmus and the revision by Rudolf Gwalther. This Zurich Bible is a new and definitive translation of Scripture based on emergent Humanist philological and Reforming theology of 16th century Zwinglianism. An appendix contains summaries of the contents of the chapters in Latin verse composed by Gwalther. According to Joachim Staedtke, the scholary "jewel" among the Froschauer Bibles was this 1543 Latin Bible, and it represents the zenith of 16th century biblical scholarship.

147 woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l., 196 leaves. Small folio (272 x 190 mm.), cont. Parisian binding of light brown calf (very skillful restorations to the binding), panelled in blind with gilt fleurons in the corners, gilt floral tool in the center of each cover of a hand holding flowers, small gilt stars in the six compartments of spine. Nuremberg: J. Petreius, 1543. First edition, and a very fine and crisp copy, of "the earliest of the three books of science that most clarified the relationship of man and his universe (along with Newton's Principia and Darwin's Origin of Species)."-Dibner, Heralds of Science, 3. This work is the foundation of the heliocentric theory of the planetary system and the most important scientific text of the 16th century. This is the seventh or eighth copy I have handled over the past 39 years. How does it compare to the others? Quite nicely. First of all, this is one of the largest copies extant; simply, this copy is really big. Also, I have had only one other copy in a 16th-century binding (Census I.245). Our binding, while carefully and skillfully repaired, is a very beautiful contemporary Parisian example; the tool of a hand holding flowers in the center of each cover is very similar to the one used on many of Marcus Fugger's plain calf bindings. It is a lovely tool in general use by the Paris binders of the period 1550-1560. The endpapers have been renewed but they are not offensive. There is a small early erasure of an ownership inscription on the title just slightly touching the "D." in the date. The first six lea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Suetonius [Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus]
Paris: Roberti Stephani, 1543. . 8vo. 352pp. plus colophon leaf at rear. Illustrated title. Contemporary full vellum, "Suetonius" on upper spine in black script. Some wear to joints, discoloration to lower front cover and spine, very good otherwise. The title leaf has suffered some loss (through wear or erasure) to the upper edge (not affecting title) and a section about 2 x .5 inches just beneath the woodcut on the title. This missing section has affected four lines of text on the verso of the title, part of the brief Life of Suetonius printed there. There is contemporary marginalia on the final page of the contents and the first page of text, in a minute hand, filling all available margin space; additionally there are handwritten numbers before sections, and occasional small marginalia throughout. In general an agreeable copy of this 1543 Paris edition.

Marca tipografica al frontespizio, con figura maschile che indica l'innesto di un olivo. Festone con il motto "Noli altum sapere". Alcune piccole incisioni nel testo. In fine è riportato il trattato "Liber de Arboribus" del medesimo Autore. Esemplare in condizioni di conservazione più che buone. Lucio Giunio Moderato Columella, nato a Cadice e vissuto nel primo secolo dopo Cristo, fu comandante della sesta legione ferrata di stanza in Siria. Proprietario terriero ed esperto di agraria, compose il presente testo per divulgare le sue conoscenze in materia. Il primo dei dodici libri tratta di norme di interesse generale per il proprietario agrario, il secondo della coltivazione dei campi, mentre il terzo, il quarto e il quinto di viticoltura. Seguono i trattati sull'allevamento del bestiame (libri VI-IX), sul giardinaggio (libro X, in esametri) e sull'economia della villa (libri XI-XII). "L'Opera merita considerazione per la competenza e per la preparazione dell'Autore a trattare una materia da lui considerata giustamente assai importante anche dal lato morale e come "la più vicina e quasi consanguinea della filosofia", convinto com'è che l'amore dei campi possa contribuire a migliorare i costumi dei suoi contemporanei, i quali, osserva con rammarico, "abbandonate falci e aratri muovono le mani nei circhi e nei teatri piuttosto che nei campi di … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alt-Japan-Katalog 1543; De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, col. 141; Cordier, Japonica, col. 131. Second German edition of the life of St Francis Xavier by Torsellini. The author brought together an enormous number of anecdotes about Xavier that had never been published before, and gives considerable detail about his travels in India, the East Indies, China and Japan from 1541 to his death in 1552, and his founding of the Society of Jesus with Loyola and the Jesuit mission in Japan.Torsellini (1544-1599), who also edited Xavier's letters, uncritically accepts the stories that had been passed on by word of mouth for the 42 years since Xavier's death, greatly expanding the number and nature of his miracles, showing him expelling devils, stilling tempests, raising four people from the dead, etc., but he was probably the last biographer to troll new sources of information until modern times. Those who followed merely repeated his stories in greatly exaggerated form, for example having him raise 14 people from the dead! Manuscript inscriptions on title-page and closing paste-down. Water stains in the foot and fore-edge margins, title-page foxed and with a small restored tear, but still in good condition.

The school he founded differed markedly in its aims from the Academy of Plato and numbered among its pupils. “Isocrates’ concern with the moral basis for power also appears in the three other so-called Cyprian orations, which should be read in conjunction with the Evagoras. In the To Demonicus, assuming that it is genuine, Isocrates advises his addressee through a series of traditional maxims, familiar from Hesiod, Solon, and Theognis, somewhat loosely strung together. Not surprisingly, piety (1.13), justice (1.15 and 38-39), moderation (sôphrosynê) (1.15), and self-control (enkrateia) (1.21) figure prominently. In this … [Click Below for Full Description]

INATOMI HUNTING ORIHON
European matchlock muskets ("hinawaju") were introduced into the island of Tanegashima, Japan, in 1543 by Portuguese traders. The Inatomi school of gunnery ("Inatomi ryu"), founded in the latter part of that century, was one of the leading schools of marksmanship in early Japan, employing "hinawaju." At the end of this manuscript, we find a brief history of the introduction of European guns: "in 1554, Shofujiro Yoshikuni Sasaki taught Tanegashima Island's secret method of gunnery to Inatomi of Sagami mori [grandfather of Ichimu Inatomi (1551-1611), who founded the Inatomi school of gunnery]. This manuscript was prepared for hunters. It depicts many kinds of game including birds (especially aquatic fowl, falcons, hawks, pheasants, and cranes), fish, dogs, boar, and deer, all beautifully illustrated by a highly accomplished artist trained in the Chinese style. The scenes are portrayed in vivid color, with red dots on the animals' bodies marking the best places for hunters to hit. The red dots are of different sizes, suggesting the size of the bullets to be used. Two of the scenes depict insects, which makes clear that the hunters were such accurate shots they could even hit small insects as well as larger animals. There are also two landscapes with no game visible, just mountains, trees, and clouds. Again, these scenes suggest the marksmen were so accurate they could even shoot birds and animals obscured by clouds. There are four scenes of hunters, in full samurai costume, wielding bows and arrows and spears. One of the hunters is mounted on a horse. Also disp … [Click Below for Full Description]

INATOMI MARKSMANSHIP ORIHON

The Inatomi school of gunnery ("Inatomi ryu"), founded in the latter part of that century, was one of the leading schools of marksmanship in early Japan, employing "hinawaju." These two finely illustrated manuscripts depict techniques of marksmanship. In the first volume each of the eight images (of nine, the first is lacking) depicts a musketeer in different positions, with targets in the distance. The musketeers are finely drawn in black ink with flesh-colored wash, and the muskets are painted in brown, gold, and silver. The musketeers are all depicted nearly naked (but they are wearing the most gorgeous loincloths made of rich colors including gold and silver in different patterns) in order to reveal correct body positioning. Each scene is titled according to the body position; the bodies of the musketeers are surrounded by notes pointing to proper positioning of each body part. There are measurements, comments regarding whether the musketeer is short or tall, how to hold the gun and squeeze the trigger, which part of the body should be tense or relaxed, how to place the barrel on a rest or foot to increase accuracy, etc. Some of the targets are conventional paper targets with bull's eyes and some are very beautifully drawn birds in the water. The second volume is concerned with problems of ballistics and marksmanship. There are three kinds of targets: paper with bull's eyes, highly decorative fans (painted in rich colors including … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venezia, Gerolamo Scoto, 1543. 3 volumi in-4 oblungo. Frontespizi e 36 pagine di musica per le voci di alto, tenore e basso. Legatura coeva in cartoncino alla rustica con titolo manoscritto al piatto superiore.  Prima edizione di rarissima opera del Morales primo grande compositore spagnolo di musica sacra ed il primo che godette di larga fama in tutta Europa.  Morales fu a Roma per dieci anni dove da molto tempo, nella Cappella Papale, erano impiegati cantori spagnoli (Alessandro VI, alla fine del XV secolo, fu il secondo Papa della famiglia spagnola dei Borgia). Dal 1535 fu cantore sotto il pontificato di Paolo III.  Ha scritto quasi esclusivamente musica sacra e vocale (era frequente, tuttavia, in Spagna l'uso di strumenti di raddoppio alle parti vocali). Alcune delle sue messe sono di grande difficoltà e probabilmente furono scritte per gli esperti della Cappella papale. Scrisse più di 100 mottetti, 18 Magnificat e musicò alcuni testi dalle Lamentazioni di Geremia per la Settimana santa. Ci sono giunte 22 messe molto interessanti poichè impiegano varie tecniche musicali. Scrisse infine due messe da Requiem e un Officium defunctorum, nel quale lo stile è tendenzialmente omoritmico. Ottimi esemplari, nessun esemplare apparentemente censito.  . .

Law, France. Francois I. 1543]
1543. Unbound. Very good. 4to. [16] pp. comprised of 8 half sheets folded once, unstitched, edges untrimmed. First leaf soiled, some dust-soiling throughout. Preserved in a mylar L-sleeve with lig-free board backing. Highly curious French legal manuscript concerning a rare 1543 Ordonnance on taxes on salt for preserving fish, a matter not only of national but international significance. The first and only edition of the "Ordonnance" was printed by Etienne Roffet in 1543, together with an Edict on lifting the Salt Tax (as here). While the Roffet tracts have never been reprinted in full, and only one copy has survived (at BnF), it is unlikely that the present MS is a direct copy because the Roffet edition is 36 pages in length, and is likewise a small 4to. The rarity of the Ordonnances is attested by the fact that even as early as the mid-18th century, no printed copy could be procured; that a MS was commissioned is self-evident, but by whom, or for what purpose, is no longer clear. There can be no doubt that our MS was written between 1740 and 1770: the watermark clearly reads: "I.B. [heart] Marcheval Fin / Auvergne." Gaudriault, p. 240, places Jean-Baptiste Marcheval at Thiers (Auvergne) exactly during these years. THE ORDONNANCE: In 1541 Francois I ordered the south-west provinces, where salt was produced, to pay a single heavy tax, but the opposition was such that within two years the idea had to be dropped. "Instead, the rigid administration of the Grande Gabelle, with its controls on production, wholesale operations, and retail sales, was to be extended to this regi … [Click Below for Full Description]

La provenienza del nostro esemplare è interessante: la prima carta bianca riporta una annotazione a firma Nicolò Ieno de Coronesi che scrive " Di questo libro non riporta il Brunet. Un esemplare simile si trova nella Biblioteca Borbonica di Napoli. Questo libro ha qualche pregio per l'antichità della descrizione e perchè...

INATOMI HUNTING ORIHON
European matchlock muskets ("hinawaju") were introduced into the island of Tanegashima, Japan, in 1543 by Portuguese traders. The Inatomi school of gunnery ("Inatomi ryu"), founded in the latter part of that century, was one of the leading schools of marksmanship in early Japan, employing "hinawaju." At the end of this manuscript, we find a brief history of the introduction of European guns: "in 1554, Shofujiro Yoshikuni Sasaki taught Tanegashima Island's secret method of gunnery to Inatomi of Sagami mori [grandfather of Ichimu Inatomi (1551-1611), who founded the Inatomi school of gunnery]. This manuscript was prepared for hunters. It depicts many kinds of game including birds (especially aquatic fowl, falcons, hawks, pheasants, and cranes), fish, dogs, boar, and deer, all beautifully illustrated by a highly accomplished artist trained in the Chinese style. The scenes are portrayed in vivid color, with red dots on the animals' bodies marking the best places for hunters to hit. The red dots are of different sizes, suggesting the size of the bullets to be used. Two of the scenes depict insects, which makes clear that the hunters were such accurate shots they could even hit small insects as well as larger animals. There are also two landscapes with no game visible, just mountains, trees, and clouds. Again, these scenes suggest the marksmen were so accurate they could even shoot birds and animals obscured by clouds. There are four scenes of hunters, in full samurai costume, wielding bows and arrows and spears. One of the hunters is mounted on a horse. Also disp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Luther, Martin, theologian and reformer (1483-1546).
[Wittenberg, ca 1 Sept. 1543]. Folio (200 x 307 mm). 2 pp. German manuscript (brown ink) on paper (watermark: letter F in circle). An extensive, uncommonly well-preserved letter to Georg Buchholzer (1503-66), Provost of St Nikolai in Berlin, regarding the latter’s altercation with the Brandenburgian court preacher Johann Agricola from Eisleben (1492-1566, also known as "Magister Eisleben") about the treatment of the local Jews. Prince Elector Joachim II, who in 1539 had introduced the Reformation to Brandenburg and whose tolerant politics toward Jews enraged the population, had long desired a reconciliation between Luther and his former disciple Agricola, and he must have suspected that Provost Buchholzer was poisoning Luther’s mind against his court preacher. Buchholzer therefore wrote to Luther requesting an interpretation of some Biblical verses by which Agricola justified his pro-Jewish stance, and in his answer Luther insists that Buchholzer has done well to preach against the Jews and shall continue to do so, ignoring the habitual liar Agricola: "Grace and Peace. My dear Provost! I must be brief with writing, for the sake of my weak head. You are aware that you have no previous association with me, nor I with you, other than that you recently wrote to me asking for an explanation regarding several statements. And even if you were to write me many things about M. Eisleben, how could I believe you alone? For whoever says that you or anyone in Berlin or in all of Brandenburg is inciting me against Eisleben, if he says so unwittingly, may God forgive him, but if he says i … [Click Below for Full Description]
