        DICTORUM FACTORUMQUE MEMORABILIUM EXEMPLA

      Paris: Robert Estienne, 1544. n. This is an elegant edition, in a very attractive binding, of Valerius Maximus' famous first century anthology collecting the memorable words and deeds of notable Romans. Compiled for the use of orators, the nine books of extremely miscellaneous information are here arranged under headings that show a good deal of order in some parts and disorder in others. The anecdotes usually have a moral, and many concern religion and social virtues, but their chief value today resides in the fact that they record many events that would otherwise be unknown to us. Our volume displays the expert work of French binder Charles-François Capé (ca. 1806-67). Capé was one of the most distinguished binders in France in the middle years of the 19th century, and he was especially well known for the delicacy of his work. He was the binder to the Empress Eugenie, and Béraldi calls him "the Bozérian of the second Empire." The printer Robert Estienne (1503-59) was perhaps the most learned of the famous Estienne family of printers, and he is described by Schreiber as "the most outstanding figure in the Renaissance booktrade in France." The texts here reflect, in Schreiber's words, Estienne's pressing desire to "produce editions of the Latin classics ever lower in price and ever compacter in form." Early editions of this book are not uncommon at auction, but one seldom sees copies as clean and attractive as this one.. 169 x 109 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 3/8"). 446, [24] pp. (with final blank). REFINED 19TH CENTURY HAZEL BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, HANDSOMELY GILT, BY CAPÉ (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with interlacing frames surrounding an arabesque cartouche, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with floral tool at center, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Estienne's device on title page. Renouard 65/18; Adams V-108; Brunet V, 1049 (this copy?). Pressed (and perhaps washed) in accordance with the practices of 19th century bibliophiles, but the leaves with plenty of life, and the volume entirely pleasing--the binding unworn and very lustrous, and the text especially smooth, fresh, and clean.

        De artes supputandi, libri quator

      ex Officina Knoblock per Georg Machaerop, Strasbourg 1544 - 8vo. pp. [xxiv] 454. Roman and Italic letter, woodcut initials, numerical diagrams throughout. T.p. and verso of last slightly dusty, slight dampstaining to blank margin of final gathering. Contemporary ms ex libris in English italic hand to t.p. "T. Liliat' with Greek inscription, C18 armorial bookplate of William Constable F.R.S - F.A.S. on pastedown. A clean and well-margined copy in C17 tan calf, triple-ruled panels in blind with roll-stamped floral motif to one side on covers, richly gilt spine in five ruled compartments with raised bands, C18 paper shelfmark pasted to spine, a handsome copy, a. e. r. The first English book wholly on arithmetic, by the great Catholic humanist, Cuthbert Tunstall (1474-1559). The work was Tunstall’s farewell to secular scholarship as he was made Bishop of London a few days after its publication, and thereafter Lord Privy Seal. It is designed as a practical work on arithmetic with the emphasis on commercial transactions, undoubtedly based on models Tunstall encountered during his studies in Padua. "The book includes many business applications of the day, such as partnership, profit and loss and exchange. It also includes the rule of false, the rule of three and numerous applications of these and other rules. It is, however, the work of a scholar and a classicist rather than a businessman." (Smith p.134, of 1st ed). "He wrote it so that his friends could be empowered to make their own calculations and no longer be cheated by money changers" (Trapp & Herbrüggen cit infr.). It is dedicated to his friend Thomas More, who, the previous year had been appointed sub-Treasurer of England, because there was no more appropriate dedicatee than the man engaged in supervising the finances of the King. "The dedicatory epistle to M[ore], gives an interesting picture of M[ore] and Tunstall" Gibson 157. This was also the return of the compliment which, 6 years earlier, More had paid Tunstall in the opening lines of the Utopia. The work was actually rather too scholarly for ordinary businessmen and it was not reprinted in England. However, it achieved some success on the continent and Rabelais (Oeuvres II 222) mentions it as required reading for the young Gargantua in Paris; it was also prescribed as an arithmetical study text in the Oxford statues of 1549, (together with Cardano). We have not yet been able to trace Thomas Liliat (alternately Layliat/Lilyat/Lilliat/Lelliot) thought he was probably a member of the Sussex landowning and later recusant family of that name - hence the obscurity. He must have been a university man as he knew enough Greek to adapt Aristotle's quip about Plato's lack of scientific knowledge, in the original, on the title page. An interesting example of a continental imprint of English authorship returning to England soon after publication, Tunstall having fallen into political incorrectness at home in the interim. William Constable (1783-1806) was an avid naturalist and collector of natural history curiosities. In 1775 he was elected fellow of the Royal Society - his Cabinet of Curiosities is still on display at his family estate, Burton Constable Hall in Yorkshire.

Luther promovierte ihn auch 1544 zum Doktor der Theologie. Seit 1545 war Major Professor für Neues Testament an der Uni Wittenberg. Wegen der Schmalkaldischen Kriege floh er und war kurzzeitig in Magdeburg und Merseburg tätig. Seit 1548 lebte er dann wieder in Wittenberg, und gab dort 1552-1559 Luthers Werke heraus.

        Epitome Belli Gallici

      Robert Estienne, Paris 1544 - AN ACCOUNT OF THE GALLIC WARS FIRST EDITION, 8vo., pp. (ii) 3-134 (civ). Mostly Italic, some Roman letter, a little Greek. Estienne’s woodcut Noli Alterum Sapere device on title page, woodcut diagram in text. Early manuscript price mark (?) on title page, contemporary manuscript annotation to K4. In a very handsome contemporary calf binding, covers ruled and panelled in blind, central section within border of ornate flowers and garlands, two medallion heads on panel within, vellum stubs. Lower cover with single but significant diagonal crack, very small repairs at head and tail of spine. A good, clean copy with wide margins, a.e.r. The impressive contemporary calf binding of this copy strongly resembles Oldham HM23 "only one example is known" and is almost certainly English, though "many of the panels used in England no doubt came from the Netherlands" (Oldham p. 20). The text itself consists of a brief summary, the Epitome of the Gallic Wars, taken from Suetonius’ iconic work. Eutropius was a late Roman historian and secretary (magister memoriae) at Constantinople. Written in a straightforward narrative style, with none of the syntactical twists and turns of Suetonius’ original Latin, the text rattles through the most important campaigns waged by Julius Caesar during the Gallic and Civil Wars, moving on to his Dictatorship and death at the hands of the Senate in only a few pages. This is followed by notes on the Commentary on Caesar’s Gallic and Civil Wars, by Henricus Glareanus: these consist of short summaries of each book and explanations of any obscure place names or peoples (e.g. the tribe known as the Sedusi who, Glareanus tells us, ‘non sunt Seduni see Germani’, referencing Pliny 4.17). Glareanus also explains, with a diagram, Caesar’s battle formation, and the various numbers of his troops. The work ends with four alphabetical indexes: the first refers back to Glareanus’ annotations on the commentary, the second gives the French equivalents of Roman place names and tribes mentioned in Caesar’s text; the third, longer notes on these places and tribes, and the fourth is an index of Caesar’s text itself. This beautifully bound edition must have been a very handy condensed textbook for any student of Caesar who had neither the time nor the inclination for the original work. Renouard 60:13.

        Paradossi cioe, sententie fuori del comun parere, novellamente venute in luce.

      Venezia, 1544.. 8°. 104 (recte 106) num. ff., 2 ff., with woodcut printer s device and several historiated initials Contemporary limp vellum. " Adams L 119; Gamba, Novelle 129 f.; Papanti 194. Rare second edition of Lando s major work, published the year before in Lyons, France. Although by the time this first Italian edition came out Lando was employed by a cardinal, his anticlerical ciriticism is not mitigated here. As the title announces he undertakes to contradict all sorts of common opinions presenting arguments for paradoxes instead. In a way he does follow an old tradtion of philosophical argumentation when he claims for instance that poverty is better than wealth. His criticism of society, the church and authorities is though rather harsh in places and let to the title being put on the index of forbidden books. In the fourth paradox for example he argues that it is better to be blind than able to see the corruption and misery of Italy. "

        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 occupò della sua formazione e lo presentò in seguito ai Farnese. Nel 1544, egli figurava già 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) è 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 è spirato il tempo che V.S.M. s'era contentata di prefigere a'quel negozio & qui non s'ha altro di più senonchè la materia tutta che io scrissi a V.S.M. starà nel fuoco La persona coniettura che sarà disposta affatto per la reduttione, quale dice di voler principian il giorno seguente come prima sarà messa in fuoco per cinque (ore?) la istessa materia tutta ma in boccio grande di vitro estando le cosà in finà, starò aspettando (quello) che V.S.M. risolverà di fare perché 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 è molto amico mio.

Nachdem Beham sich 1524 gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder der christlich reformatorischen Bewegung der Täufer angeschlossen hatte, wurde er 1525 inhaftiert und wegen Ketzerei der Stadt verwiesen. Auch nach seiner Rückkehr 1528 nach Nürnberg wurde er im darauffolgenden Jahr erneut wegen angeblich anstößigen Verhaltens aus der Stadt verbannt und ging nach München. Nach seiner Umsiedelung um 1532 nach Frankfurt am Main fertigte er zahlreiche Zeichnungen für Holzschnitte (Bibeln und Chroniken) und machte sich einen Namen als Kupferstecher.

All 24 parts present; lacking only [*]1 the general title to the Pentateuch ("Quinque libri legis") and A1 of same, the title to Genesis; all other titles present, and with all blanks present except two. 2 vols. 4to. Bound in early 18th-century cat's paw calf, marbled endpapers, edges red, gilt spines, red leather labels. Slight rubbing to joints, vol. I rebacked, preserving most of the original spine, internally a fine, immaculate copy. Bookplate of John Murphy, Bishop of Cork from 1815; purple stamp in Gaelic on pastedowns, and occasionally in margins. First Estienne Hebrew Bible. Title--pages in Hebrew and Latin, with the large Estienne olive-tree device [Schreiber 5], Hebrew Square Letter with pointing, with commentary of David Kimhi on the Minor prophets printed in unpointed Rashi letter (the text is pointed, i.e., with the Masoretic vowel points inserted). All 24 parts present; lacking only [*]1 the general title to the Pentateuch ("Quinque libri legis") and A1 of same, the title to Genesis; all other titles present, and with all blanks present except two. 2 vols. 4to. The Great Estienne Hebrew Bible, 1539-1544. In the year 1539, the great Parisian printer Robert Estienne was appointed "Imprimeur des lettres Hébraiques et Latines" by François I. In the case of the Latin part of the title, the award was surely granted in recognition of his past achievements; in the case of Hebrew, however, the royal appointment must have been given in recognition of Estienne's work-in-progress: his plan to print the Hebrew Bible - a plan which indeed he executed twice in the years 1539-1546. This is the first of his two Hebrew Bibles, the quarto editio, printed with the Hebrew font which Estienne had commissioneed from Jehan Arnoud. His second Hebrew Bible in 16mo, equally celebrated, was printed from 1544-46. Both are beautiful, but by far the rarer of the two is this large 4to edition which Estienne issued in 24 parts from 1539 to 1544. Complete copies are quite rare, and complicating the rarity is the fact that the parts were issued over a period of 5 years, and not at all in the order of their place in the Bible; certain parts were reprinted by Estienne at a later date (e.g., Canticum Canticorum sometimes appears with a date of 1555); and finally, there never was a final, general title-page issued for the complete Bible. Incomplete, or partially complete, sets occasionally appear - but finding a complete set - particular one in such superb condition as this - is extremely difficult. The Estienne Hebrew Bible, for its beauty, rarity, and importance, we believe, can be seen and appreciated to its best advantage in the quarto format; its famous successor, the 16mo of 1544-46, albeit certainly a "bijou typgraphgique" (Renouard), cannot compare in majesty to its predecessor. As to its importance (as if having been printed by Robert Estienne were not enough), consider this remark of Elizabeth Armstrong, in ROBERT ESTIENNE, ROYAL PRINTER: "This appears to have been the first complete edition of the Hebrew Scriptures printed in France, and the first complete edition by a Christian scholar to appear after the [Complutensian] Polyglot of 1514-17."
