        Opera, quae quidam extant, omnia

      Johannes Hervagius, 1544, Hardcover (Full Leather), Book Condition: Very Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, First Edition. ARCHIMEDES. Opera, quae quidam extant, omnia ... , Basel: Johannes Hervagius, 1544. Small folio (about 12.5x8 inches or 32x21cm), first complete edition of the ancient Greek's work, pp. 8, 140, 2 (title leaf), vi, 110, 2 (manuscript addition), 111-164, 4, 66, 63, colophon. Contemporary calf boards with a whimsical gilt-stamped armorial on both covers, rebacked in calf with a black morocco label on spine, red speckled edges, large armorial different from that of the covers is watermarked into the front endpaper, woodcut initials and diagrams. Text in Greek and Latin. With a neat one-page manuscript titled "Cristiani Hugenii/ Alia demonstratio propositionis 18./ Archemedis de spiralibus/ad paginam 111." The manuscript, with a perfect handmade diagram, provides Huygens' alternative proof to the spiral theory Archimedes demonstrates on a facing page. The armorials here indicate the book was owned by at least one minor Dutch aristocrat. It passed into the hands of other private collectors who have left no ownership marks. The author of the manuscript may have been a colleague or at least an admirer of Huygens, the great Dutch scientist of the 17th century who himself owned at least two copies of this book. (They are housed in European libraries.) Also here are extensive margin notes and text emendations, some in vanishingly tiny script, but always perfectly readable and done without obscuring the original. The commentator was likely the same person who created the manuscript, and certainly an accomplished mathematician. As for the main text, it is the first complete edition of Archimedes' works, including the Arenarius or "sand reckoner," a system of expressing large numbers such as all the grains of sand in a sphere the size of the universe. It was edited by Theodore Gechauff with commentary by Eutocius Ascolonites. Printing and the Mind of Man, 72, calls Archimedes "the greatest mathematician and engineer of antiquity." Also see Rara Arithmetica pp. 226-228, Horblit 5, Heralds of Science 137, and Adams A1531. Condition of this book: Moderate wear and chipping to the covers, armorials dulled, very clean inside; overall very good and sound. Size: Large Folio (bigger than A3). Text contains marks and notes scattered throughout, in ink. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Antiquarian & Rare; Renaissance 16thc to 17thc; Mathematics. Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 53701.

        Sopra lo Amorem o ver' Convito de Platone.

      Firenze, Néri Dorteláta, 1544. 8vo. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Binding with some soiling and inner front hinge opening. Binding worn, but still fine, intact, and completely unrestored. Internally very nice and clean, with only a bit of mild scattered brownspotting. Neat contemporary owner's inscription to title-page. Woodcut printer's device on title-page and verso of final leaf. (19), 1 (blank) ff., 251, (45) pp. ¶ Scarce first edition thus of Ficino's most important work as well as one of the most influential texts of the Renaissance. This is the editio princeps of the Italian text, being Ficino's own Italian translation of the work; furthermore, this Italian edition also constitutes the first separate edition of the work and it contains several additions and emendations compared to the Latin version. The "Commentary", as it is often referred to, was not published separately in Latin; its earliest publication was in the first edition of Ficino's translation of the "Opera" of Plato, and its first separate publication was the Italian version (the present)."Immediately after the completion of the Latin "Commentary", Ficino himself translated it into Italian, dedicating the translation to Bernardo del Nero and Antonio Manetti. The earliest edition of this translation referred to by della Torre, Saitta, or Hasse is that of Cosimo Bartoli, 1544. Bartoli says in a letter that he made his edition from an original copy of Ficino's translation. Hasse made his German translation of the "Commentary" from this 1544 edition of the Italian translation, choosing the Italian rather than the Latin, because, as he says, the Italian contains several additions and emendations. " (Jayne, pp. 14-15).Ficino is arguably the most significant of all Renaissance thinkers and his influence on this most crucial period in the development of modern thought remains unsurpassed. He is the chief representative of Renaissance Platonism and is largely responsible for spreading - and re-shaping - Platonism in the modern world. "The most central and most influential representative of Renaissance Platonism is Marsilius Ficinus, in whom the medieval philosophical and religious heritage and the teachings of Greek Platonism are brought together in a novel synthesis." (Kristeller, Renaissance Thought, p. 59). "If Florence enjoyed an age of gold in the quattrocento, it minted no coin brighter than the refined spirituality of Ficino's refurbished Platonism." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, Renaissance Philosophy, p. 163). His translations and commentaries on the writings of Plato (especially that on the Symposium) generated the Florentine Platonist Renaissance that influenced European thought for two centuries. "Whereas for Cusanus Platonism was an important part of his background, it constituted for Marsilio Ficino the very center of his work and thought. His Latin translation of Plato made the entire "Corpus" of Plato's dialogues available to Western readers for the first time, and hence it must be recorded as a major event in the history of Platonism and of Western thought. To this translation we must add his introductions and commentaries, among which the commentary on the "Symposium" was especially famous and influential". (Kristeller, Renaissance Thought and its Sources, p. 160).It is difficult to overstate the significance of Ficino's Platonic achievements or the impact that they had on the development of early modern thought. They shaped and defined the form and contents of philosophical thought of the centuries to come. Especially his commentary on the "Symposium" - which is part commentary, part an original dialogue based upon Plato's - came to influence Western thought and is undoubtedly one of the most popular and influential treatments of Plato ever written. "The "Commentary" (i.e. on Plato's Symposium) is the logical work with which to begin the study of Ficino. Not only is it his most important work, but it was written by Ficino with the avowed purpose of providing a condensed view of his theory and ideas. Giuseppe Saitta, indeed, the foremost authority on Ficino's philosophy and author of the material on Ficino in the "Enciclopedia italiana", calls this Ficino's most original commentary and says it is the one that contains the most vital part of his philosophy. This "Commentary", moreover, is generally recognized as having had more influence on later Neoplatonists than any other single work by Ficino. ...It was Ficino who introduced Plato to the awakening Europe of the fifteenth century. He is, in consequence, an important connecting link in several chains of thought: in the chain of Platonism from Socrates to dean Inge; in the chain of Idealism from Plato to the Absolute Idealists; in the chain of Christianity from Aquinas to some forms, at least, of present-day religion. Ficino is of interest to the student of logic, because his logic is a departure from the Aristotelian logic of the Middle Ages, in the direction of that of the Ramists. Ficino's conception of Beauty, both in form and influence, is important to the student of Aesthetics as the most thorough exposition of the theory of "beauty as the influence of the Ideal" between Aristotle and Kant. Finally, to the student of literature, the influence of Ficino will be recognized, not only as powerful and deeply formative in the Renaissance, but as unended even in our day." (Jayne, pp. (2-3)). The editor of the work is Cosimo Bartoli, who received an original copy of Ficino's Italian text and then published it. He prefaced it with the "Osservazioni per la pronunzia fiorentina di Neri Dorteláta da Firenze" (p. [6]-[38] at beginning), which is one of the earliest texts to deal with the correct representation of the sounds of the Italian language, by means of accents and the introduction of new letters (j and v, as distinct from i and u, etc.).Brunet II:1245. Not in Graesse. Not in Adams (only recording a later edition). See: S.R. Jayne: Marsilio Ficino's Commentary on Plato's "Symposium", 1944.

        Lettera autografa firmata del celebre Bibliotecario dei Farnese. Figlio illegittimo di un Orsini del ramo di Mugnano, le sue doti intellettuali gli avevano fatto presto guadagnare la protezione di Gentile Delfini, che si occupo' della sua formazione e lo presento' in seguito ai Farnese. Nel 1544, egli figurava gia' sul "rotolo de' familiari" a carico del Cardinale Alessandro, sebbene fosse a servizio del Cardinale Ranuccio come Bibliotecario, incarico che svolse per l'intera vita. E al Cardinale Farnese (dest. autografo alla quarta con sig. cart. e taglio della carta in diagonale non lesivo del testo) e' indirizzata proprio questa lettera datata Roma xxi di luglio 1576 in cui l'Orsini descrive un procedimento (alchemico?) che sta eseguendo per conto del Cardinale "Hoggi e' spirato il tempo che V.S.M. s'era contentata di prefigere a'quel negozio & qui non s'ha altro di piu' senonche' la materia tutta che io scrissi a V.S.M. stara' nel fuoco (_) La persona coniettura che sara' disposta affatto per la reduttione, quale dice di voler principian il giorno seguente (_) come prima sara' messa in fuoco per cinque (ore?) la istessa materia tutta ma in boccio grande di vitro (_) estando le cosi in fini, staro' aspettando (quello) che V.S.M. risolvera' di fare perche' in nero non venendosi_etc.". Annibal Caro, il Segretario di Alessandro, fin dal 1555 presentava l'Orsini come "un giovane di molto merito, il quale e' molto amico mio".

        Cosmographia, das ist: Beschreibung der gantzen Welt, ...Basel, heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri, 1628. Folio (38 x 24.5 cm). With engraved title-page, letterpress title-page printed in red and black with woodcut portrait of Münster on the back, 26 numbered double-page woodcut maps on inserted bifolia, 72 double-page woodcut maps, plans and views on integral leaves, and about 1500 woodcut illustrations in the text (including repeats) showing maps, plans, views, plants, animals, monsters, etc. Contemporary vellum.

      Sabin 51396; VD17 23:230709C (7 copies); cf. H.L. Ruland, “A survey of the double-page maps in thirty-five editions of the Cosmographia Universalis 1544-1628 of Sebastian Münster ...” in: Imago Mundi XVI (1962), pp. 84-97; for Münster: DSB IX, pp. 580-581. Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200. From the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-1657) in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's Suecia antiqua et hodierna, are loosely inserted); several annotations in Swedish on the pastedowns.One leaf of the register restored affecting part of the text (replacement from a smaller copy of the 1614 edition), frontispiece reinforced in the gutter margin, some occasional thumbing and a few dog-eared leaves, otherwise a very good and clean copy, with the paper nearly untrimmed (tranchefiles still visible). Binding also very good, lacking the flyleaves.

        Patent of nobility (Real Ejecutoria de Nobleza) comprising a judgement of the court of Valladolid, confirming the noble status of Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez of Cogolludo, province of Guadalajara, Spain.

      Valladolid, Spain, d.d. 1544. Full vellum. 33 x 22 cm. Two pieces of rope attached to front cover to open and close it, but one piece partly missing. Writing in ink on front cover, small damage poorly repaired. Clumsily bound wih a piece of green and pink rope. Pages slightly grimed in the margins but generally good. (18) pages court judgement on vellum, manuscript, calligraphic, text. First page lavishly illustrated with a coat-of-arms and decorated in the margins with flowers and animals. With gold in the text. Comes with a manuscript letter d.d. 5 January 1547, 2 pages on paper. This rare and beautifully executed court judgement comprises the patent of nobility for two brothers, Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez, from the town of Cogolludo in the province Guadalajara (Spain). It dates from 1544, in the reign of Emperor Charles V, King of Spain. It holds the sentence of the court of Valladolid which, besides having their properties reinstated, also confirms their recognition as old noble status (hidalguia) after hearing evidence from elders (persons mentioned as being more than 80 and more than 60 years old) and respected inhabitants of the city Cogolludo. Contained within is the instruction pertaining to the return of their estates. Of special interest is the magnificent miniature detail on this parchment with a loaded coat of arms with several specific Spanish heraldic elements. The brothers seem to have objected on the 7 of April 1543 to being treated as ordinary tax payers (pecheros) and having lost their properties. They sued the Imperial authorities who appeared by the licentiates Pedroza and Hunjedo. As representatives in Toledo are mentioned the licentiates Oviedo and Diego de Alfaro. H141

        [Opera] [graece], edited by Arnoldus Arlenius

      Basel: Hieronymus Froben & Nicolaus Episcopius,, 1544. Folio (319 x 217 mm). Contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, metal clasps and corner-pieces, spine in compartments and with two later leather labels (one chipped with loss), later marbled endpapers. Collation: *6 a–z A–z Aa–Hh6 Ii4 AA–MM6, Greek type, title in red and black and with woodcut printer's device, large woodcut historiated initial at start, initial spaces with guide-letters, woodcut headpieces, woodcut printer's device to verso of final leaf. Some early red ink underlining. Small nick at head of spine, lightly soiled, rubbed, a few unobtrusive very small wormholes within text, some spotting or light foxing, very good. Editio princeps, a wide-margined copy of the handsomely printed first edition in the original Greek, providing a comprehensive history of the Jews from Creation to the end of the war with Rome (70 CE). The printed work is taken from manuscripts in the library of Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, for whom the editor Arlenius was librarian. The present copy matches the rarer of two variants (based on the spelling of one word in the colophon) given by Adams.

        Biblia Sacrosancta Testamenti Veteris & Noui, iuxta vulgatum quam dicunt aeditionem

      Lyons: J. and F. Frellon for Hugues de La Porte and heirs of A. de La Porte, 1544. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Folio (348 x 246 mm). Woodcut printer's device (Baudrier 7) on title, 91 woodcuts, including one repeat, in the Old Testament and seven in the New Testament. Early 20th-century brown crushed levant morocco gilt, spine gilt-lettered with monograms "VM" and title, gilt coat of arms of Prince d'Essling with his motto "Victor et fidelis" on both sides, edges gilt, by Lortic. Binding with a few minor scuffs; washed and pressed. Provenance: Victor Massena, Prince d'Essling (1836-1910) (binding); acquired from Philip Hofer, 1962. SECOND LATIN BIBLE FROM THIS PRESS TO INCLUDE THE HOLBEIN ILLUSTRATIONS; the first was printed in 1538. The text follows the Vulgate, edited with notes by Robert Estienne, which were proscribed by the theological faculties of Louvain and Paris and placed on the first papal Index. In 1538, Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel printed both the first edition of Holbein's Icones (including eighty-six of the cuts used here in the Old Testament), for the Frellons, and the first Bible to contain the Holbein cuts, for Hugues de La Porte. La Porte published new editions of the Holbein Bible in 1544 and 1551 with only minor changes in the cuts. Holbein's woodblocks, which may date from 1529-1530, were influenced by other illustrated Lyons Bibles, most notably the 1521 Bailly edition (itself modeled on earlier Giunta editions) and the 1520 Gueynard edition. Holbein's illustrations set a new standard for Bible illustration and were widely copied for later editions published in Lyons, Paris, Zurich and Antwerp. Although this 1544 edition does follow the 1538 closely, it is not a page-for-page reprint. In this edition, one Icones block for II Kings I has been added between nos. 37 and 38, but no 42, Abisag, is omitted and replaced by a repetition of no. 63, Esther. Two other subjects by a different hand have been added at Genesis iv and ix. Brun, p.153; Harvard/Mortimer French 72; Woltmann, Holbein II, p.173.

      [Venezia, Giolito de Ferrari, 1544 or 1566]. Small 8vo (14.3 x 9.7 cm). Title page with large, engraved vignette[184] pp., contemporary vellum. Spine with black morocco label and gilt title. Red and white mottled edges.l Apparently the first edition of this work in verse, perhaps in the "tradition" of Oppian. Written by Matteo, conte de (or di) San Martino (1494-1556), an Italian scholar and linguist. According to Brunet, "Cette édition ne porte ni lieu d'impression ni nom d'imprimeur, mais elle a sur le frontispiece le Phénix, marque Giotto de Venise". Interestingly, a smaller version of the same vignette is repeated on the errata leaf verso. The publishing date is uncertain. Westwood and Satchell date it from 1566, but 1544 has been mentioned as well. Cancelled bookplate on front pastedown (Harvard Library, from the bequest of Mary P. C. Nash in memory of her husband Bennett Hubbard Nash, Instructor and Professor of Italian and Spanish 1866-1894). Small cancelled stamp on title page verso. Otherwise a very good clean copy. Brunet V, p. 110 [14934]; Westwood & Satchell, p. 188. Not in Dean.

With woodcut publisher's device on title-page and a larger version on verso of last leaf, 30 (of 33) numbered woodcut map plates, including 19 double-page or folding, and numerous charming woodcut initials. 18th-century(?) parchment.

      Adams M-1063 (incomplete); Chadenat 6400; Harrisse 112; VD 16, M2326. The first and only edition to be edited by Christianus Vurstisius of the pioneering geographical works two classical Latin geographers, Mela and Solinus. Vurstisius (1544-1588) was a professor of mathematics and theology at Basel and its first city historian. Mela's geographical survey of the inhabited world, the first geographical work in Latin, is preceded by Vurstisius's preface and an extensive index. It is followed by a geographical summary of the parts of the known world by Gaius Julius Solinus (3rd century).The woodcut map plates are numbered 1-33, but plate 33 contains 2 single-page maps and plate 26 (lacking in the present copy) contains 3 single-page maps, making 36 maps in total. Plates 28 and 29 were also printed on a single piece of paper, but were apparently intended for binding as 2 single-page plates, though in the present copy they appear as a single folding plate.With contemporary manuscript note on title-page, some underlining. Lacking 3 maps. Corner of 1 map repaired at an early date, slightly affecting the border, ocean and 1 small island, and tears in the gutter of one bifolium not affecting text, also partly repaired.

Ruland, “A survey of the double-page maps in thirty-five editions of the Cosmographia Universalis 1544-1628 of Sebastian Münster …” in: Imago Mundi XVI (1962), pp. 84-97; for Münster: DSB IX, pp. 580-581. Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200. From the library of Ericsberg Castle near Katrineholm, Sweden, built for the Swedish statesman Erik Karlsson Gyllenstierna (1602-1657) in the 1650s (two engraved views of the castle, from Dahlberg's Suecia antiqua et hodierna , are loosely inserted); several annotations in Swedish on the pastedowns.One leaf of the register restored affecting part of the text (replacement from a smaller copy of the 1614 edition), frontispiece reinforced in the gutter margin, some occasional thumbing and a few dog-eared leaves, otherwise a very good and clean copy, with the paper nearly untrimmed (tranchefiles still visible). Binding also very good, lacking the flyleaves.

A Latin translation had been printed and reprinted beginning in the incunable period. This Greek text was edited by Arnoldus Arlenius (1510-1582) together with Froben's in-house scholar Sigismund Gelen, working from a manuscript discovered by Arlenius in his cataloguing of the library of the Spanish ambassador to Venice, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (1503-1575). Froben set the text in the same fine Greek type he had used for the 1516 Erasmus edition of the New Testament.

        Amstelredamum, Nobile Inferioris Germaniae Oppidum

      Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. View. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13.5" x 19.25" This plan of Amsterdam, based on Cornelis Antoniszoon's 1544 woodcut plan, shows the city with its medieval walls and defense systems. Published circa 1572, the map celebrates the city's booming commerce and trade by showing its rivers and canals teeming with ships of all sizes. At the center of the city is the dam of the Amstel River, which was lined with public buildings. Red colored roofs of buildings throughout the city accurately depict the common medieval style of Dutch architecture. Among them, the extravagant size of churches indicates their architectural and social prominence. A small key with two figures in the lower left corner identifies these and other important buildings, while text in the upper right corner describes Amsterdam's growing commercial prominence. The city's coat of arms is at the upper left. Latin text on verso. The map is in good condition with few chips and tears, not affecting the image. Candlewax stain on ship near center of bottom edge of image. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," first printed atlas of the towns of the world. The 6-volume collection comprised 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities, with Hogenberg's collaboration on the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. This plan of Amsterdam demonstrates the high quality of their work.
