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.

apud Io. Petreium, 1543. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le texte est imprimé en hébreux et en latin et est orné de jolies lettrines gravées sur bois. Bibliotheca Bodleiana, 2012-2013. Sébastien Munster publie en 1525 sa grammaire hébraïque. Elias Levita, savant Juif, occupe dans cette branche de la littérature qui était de son domaine spécial, un rang supérieur à Munster même. « Ceux qui veulent connaître à fond la langue hébraïque, dit Simon, doivent lire les traités du rabbin Elias Levita ; ils sont plein de réflexions utiles et importantes et absolument nécessaires pour posséder l’intelligence du texte sacré »». (H. Hallam, A. Borghers, Histoire de la littérature de l’Europe pendant les XVe, XVIe et XVIIe siècles, pp.471-472.) « The Reformation marks a great change in the history of Hebrew grammar. The transfer of the leadership in the field of Hebrew grammar from the Jews to the Christians is in a way personified in Elijah Levita (1469-1549), of whom Sebastian Münster, one of the most prominent of the Christian Hebraists, writes in 1546: "Whoever possesses to-day solid knowledge of Hebrew owes it to Elijah's work or to the sources proceeding from it. Of greatest importance in the sixteenth century were the works of Sebastian Münster who, following Elijah Levita, perfected … [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.

Timbro di possesso del celebre bibliofilo e studioso Gustavo Camillo Galletti (Firenze, 1805-ivi, 1868), la cui eccezionale biblioteca fu fra le maggiori costituite da privati nell'Italia dell'800.

Fernanda Ascarelli ("La tipografia cinquecentina italiana", Firenze, 1953, p. 70 e 198; Ascarelli-Menato, p. 111) accenna all'attività tipografica del Valgrisi (Vaugris per la precisione, essendo egli un francese trapiantato a Venezia) come concentrata fra il 1539 e il 1572 e discorre brevemente di sue pubblicazioni in associazione con Baldassarre Costantini tra il 1553 e il 1558.

SOLINUS, Caius Julius.
Basel, M. Isengrin, 1543. With 2 large folding maps and 18 woodcut maps (of which 2 are full-page) in the text after S. Münster by C(onrad) S(chnitt), numerous decorative woodcut initials, 2 printer's devices in woodcut (repeated). (10) leaves, 230 pp., (1) leaf. Folio (c. 295 x 200 mm). Contemporary Spanish vellum, spine lettering in contemp. ink (new endpapers). In a cloth box. Basel, M. Isengrin, 1543. An important edition of Solinus (fl. 250) and Mela (fl. 50) with the commentaries of Sebastian Münster and the only one adorned with Münster's maps repeated from the first edition of 1538. The first large folding map (bound-in between pp. 38 and 39) "Typus Graeciae" shows Greece with Poland, Russia, Turkey, Cyprus and the Black Sea. The second large folding map (bound-in after p. 144) "Asia Maior", which also shows a part of Africa, is probably the first printed map of Asia as a whole included in a book. "This is one of the earliest obtainable maps devoted solely to the continent of Asia" (Sweet), and this map "shows one of the first delineations of a strait between Asia and America, some two hundred years before Bering's voyage" (Burden). In the northeast corner of the map is a strip of land titled "Terra incognita", which represents "the earliest . indication of the western coast of North America" (Eames). Among the smaller maps within the text, that of Russia (p. 48) is especially noteworthy because it is the first time a map shows the accurate delineation of the river system in Russia.

Legatura in tutta pergamena antica. Prima edizione della pi-- importante cosmografia pre-copernicana, in cui sono citati in pi-- passi i viaggi di Colombo e Vespucci in America. "In this book, which is in the form of a dialogue, the teacher says that he has now finished what he has to say about earth, unless human perversity should go so far that someone believed the earth to revolve on its axis. On the pupil replying that so strange an opinion could scarcely enter anyone's head, the teacher remarks that many people teach even greater absurdities, and it may therefore be well to prove that the earth cannot possibly move. The preface to this book is dated February 1540, but the year of publication is 1543, so that it must remain an open question whether Maurolico alludes to Calcagnini or to Copernicus" (J.L. Dreyer, A History of Astronomy from Thales to Kepler, p. 295). Riccardi I, 2, 140 ("bella ediz., raro"). Harrisse (Additions) 142. Houzeau/Lancaster 2411 ("rare"). DSB IX, 190f.

Venice, heirs of Luc'Antonio Giunta, 1543. With woodcut printer's device on title and a larger one on A3 verso, numerous historiated initials and 55 woodcut diagrams in the text. 4 unn., 103 num. leaves, 4 unn. leaves "Ad Lectorem" bound at end (lacking the preceding blank). 4to. 17th-century vellum with spine label. Venice, heirs of Luc'Antonio Giunta, 1543. First edition of an outstanding astronomical treatise containing a discussion of the Earth's rotation on its axis. This is the Sicilian born mathematician Maurolico's (1494-1575) first and most important work, including the 4-leaf "Ad Lectorem" often missing, a convenient list of the astronomical parameters culled from various authorities found embedded within the text - which is dated 5 December 1542. Written in the form of three dialogues, this work was completed at Messina 21 October 1535 (f.103). But the preface, a dedicatory letter to Cardinal Bembo with a list of Maurolico's numerous unpublished works, is dated 5 February 1540, the year of publication of Rheticus' "Narratio prima", where he could have learned about the Copernican theory. Maurolico's comprehensive introduction to astronomy includes references to the voyages of Vespucci and Columbus' discovery of America (f.18r and f.34v), and the evidence that discussions of the earth's motion were in the air. The author sought to revive the Eudoxine system, a geocentric, homocentric system of spheres designed to account for the motion of planets as seen from the earth without recourse to the epicycles of Ptolemy.

Strasburgo, in officina Knoblochiana per Georgium Machaeropioeum, 1543. In - 4ø; 26 cc., 262 (ma 260), 26 cc. con 129 incisioni in legno nel testo; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida. In alcune carte si notano postille marginali di antica mano e due disegni di macchine. Firme cassate al frontespizio, per il resto ottimo esemplare. Prima edizione di Vitruvio stampata in area tedesca, assai significativa nel panorama dell'architettura europea della seconda met... del '500. Solo Durer si era avvicinato precedentemente all'antico scrittore e ora in pieno Rinascimento Europeo l'interesse per il testo di Vitruvio era cresciuto enormemente come testimoniano le tante edizioni che seguirono questa del Macheropieo: Parigi (1545 e 1547) di nuovo Strasburgo (1550), Lione (1552). Alla fine del volume sono aggiunte due operette: il "De aquaeductibus urbis Romae libellum" di Sesto Giulio Frontino e il "De staticis experimentis" di Nicola Cusano (1401 - 1464), uscito a stampa precedentemente solo nel 1500. Le illustrazioni xilografiche si rifanno a quelle della edizione in - folio stampata a Como del 1521. Fowler 401. Cicognara 707. Berlin Katalog 1806.

Klaus Dobat (Autor) Leonhart Fuchs
Derzeit das einzige kolorierte Kräuterbuch der alten Meister am Buchmarkt. Das Problem bei Faksimile-Nachdrucken z.B. die Abbildung der Buchstabenschärfe läßt sich leider nicht beheben. Alles in allem ist es ein ganz hervorragendes Buch. Sehr empfehlenswert für alle diejenigen, die sich als Fortgeschrittene mit Heilkräutern und den wundervollen Rezepten unserer Vorfahren beschäftigen. Allerdings: Vorkenntnisse auch was den sprachlichen Ausdruck der damaligen Zeit anlangt, müssen vorausgesetzt werden. Diese hervorragende Reprint in Original-kolorit von eins der schönsten botanische Bücher des Renaissance suchte Ich seit mehrere Jahren. Ältere Reprints, die ich im Antiquariat sah, waren zu kostbar und nicht halb so schön, weil diese nicht koloriert waren. Es ist ja unglaublich wie schnell das drucktechnische Können sich in den letzten Jahren verbessert hat. Dieser Reprint wird viele Leute erfreuen: den fachlich interessierte Historiker - Botaniker, den Kunsthistoriker und den Buch-Historiker, aber auch den an Kräutern interessierten Laien, der sehr viel Wissenwertes und Interessantes finden wird.

Joachim Noack cand. theol.
Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Broschur im Format 15 x 23 cm) mit Deckeltitel, 16 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur, mit Druckvermerk: "Die vorliegende Schrift Luthers, die wir im Auszug und in unserer Schriftdeutsch übertragen bringen, stammt aus dem Jahre 1543. Luther hat sie also in abgeklärtem Alter, drei Jahre vor seinem Tode, verfasst. Mit großer Schärfe hat er sich schon früher (1514) gegen die Juden gewandt. Von 1521 abnimmt er ihnen gegenüber eine wesentlich freundlichere Stellung ein, ist jedoch gegen Ende seines Lebens ein ganz entschiedener Judengegner geworden, dies beweisen auch seine andere Judenschriften: "Wider die Sabbather" und "Vom Schem Hamphoras." - Titelblatt mit dem bekannten Wort von Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf, S. 69/70): "Siegt der Jude mit Hilfe seines marxistischen Glaubensbekenntnisses über die Völker dieser Welt, dann wird seine Krone der Totenkranz der Menschheit sein. . ." - Aus dem Vorwort: "Die dargebotene kleine Schrift Luthers ist so wichtig, daß sie allen Volksgenossen zugänglich sein muss, zeigt sie doch deutlich die starke Liebe des großen Reformators zu seinem deutschen Volke . . . Möge nun dieses Heftchen mit dazu beizutragen, die neue Deutsche Kirche zu bauen, zum Segen unseres Volkes und des dritten Reiches" - Aus dem Schlusswort: "Die Stellung Luther zu den Juden lässt sich nach unserer Schrift unschwer erkennen. Es ist die Stellung, wie sie jeder artreine nichtjüdische Mensch natürlicherweise einnehmen muss. Und wenn sich in unseren Tagen das Rassebewusstsein wieder mächtig regt, so wollen wir uns dessen klar bewusst sein, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Japan and Western medicine
1543. [Japan and Western Medicine.] Oranda jin Geka ryoji no zu [Dutch Surgery in Nagasaki]. Original pen, ink and watercolor drawing on light brown-toned silk, with 4 vertical lines of Japanese characters in the upper left corner. Japan: late 18th or early 19th century]. 483 x 363 mm., mounted as a scroll at a modern date on light grey silk backed with paper, with a half-round hanging rail (with braided ribbon attached) at the top and a suspension bar at the foot, measuring 914 x 443 mm. overall; preserved in a custom-made wooden box. A few tiny pinholes in upper corners of image, but fine, with the coloring fresh and bright. This striking image, showing an amputation carried out by a Dutch surgeon in Japan, was most likely painted in the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, during Japan's self-imposed period of national isolation. The hand-painted image is related, but by no means identical to a Nagasaki woodblock print titled "Surgery by a Dutch Physician," one of many popular souvenir prints depicting scenes unique to Nagasaki, which at the time was the sole point of contact between Japan and the outside world. (See our reproduction of the print). It may be that our scroll is the original of the image; however, it is also possible that both hand-painted and woodcut versions of the image were produced simultaneously. Western surgery came to Japan in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries via the Portuguese, who in 1543 became the first Europeans to make direct contact with Japan, and the Dutch, who became the only European nation allowed to trade with Japan a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fuchs, Leonhard
Basel, Michael Isengrin, 1543. Folio. Full-page woodcut portrait of Fuchs on title verso, with 512 of 518 contemporary coloured botanical woodcuts by Viet Rudolph Speckle after Heinrich Füllmaurer and Albert Meyer, woodcut portraits of the three artists at the end. Some woodcuts, vignettes, printermarks in the text. New leather binding with 5 raised bands with box.Titlepage and some illustrated plates restored, foxing throughout, some spots, waterstains and small tears. Some pages with small damages and paper loss. 6 plates (509-514) and text missing at the end., A copy nice contemporary colouring, which probably has been done at the publisher's premises. Each illustration shows only one big illustration with one species of herbal on a single page.First edition in german of the most celebrated und most beautiful herbal book of the 16th century. Fuchs, along with Otto Brunfels and Hieronymus Bock, was one of the three German fathers of modern botany. While his main objective in writing the De Historia Stirpium Commentarii Insignes remained in the tradition of Dioscorides and subsequent herbals, describing plants for their medicinal use, Fuchs also gives accurate botanical descriptions of more than 500 plants. The detailed plant-portraits of the first edition were highly influential. They were reused in this and later editions of Fuchs's herbal, successfully compressed in the smaller-format editions of Fuchs, copied in the works of Bock, Dodoens, William Turner, and others, and pirated in contemporary botanical works, a use which Fuchs actively contested. They were drawn from … [Click Below for Full Description]

"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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
