        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..

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).

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."

        Fürmalung und künstlich Beschreibung der Horologien [.].

      Basel, Heinrich Petri, (März 1544). - (8), CLXVI, (2) SS. Mit Titelholzschnitt (Wandsonnenuhr), 72 mathematischen Holzschnittfiguren sowie Druckermarke am letzten Bl. verso. Hübscher Pergamentskriptband der Zeit unter Verwendung einer Handschrift des 15. Jhs. mit Lombardinitialen in rot und blau. Bindebänder erneuert. Folio (197 x 302 mm). In maßgefertigter Leinenkassette. Zweite deutsche Ausgabe von Münsters Kompendium zum Bau von Sonnenuhren. Anders als mit den meisten seiner mathematisch-astronomischen Werken hat Münster mit seinen gnomischen Schriften tatsächlich "einen Einfluss ausgeübt [.] Zinner sieht Münster weitgehend in der Abhängigkeit von Regiomontan, Stöffler und Georg Hartmann [.] Münster hat sich um eine Fülle von Sonnenuhren bemüht, und man muss Münsters Bedeutung als Mathematiker, soweit man überhaupt von einer solchen sprechen will, in seiner Bedeutung als Gnomiker sehen, die ihn wieder als den praktischen Handwerker zeigt; denn die Gnomik war eine Wissenschaft, die schon beinahe ins Handwerkliche überging. Man kann heute kaum mehr abschätzen, wie viele Sonnenuhren von Münster oder nach seinen Plänen hergestellt wurden. Seine Schriften waren jedenfalls sehr verbreitet" (Burmeister, Biogr. Gesamtbild, S. 188). - Durchgehend etwas gebräunt bzw. braun- und fingerfleckig; zu Beginn leicht wasserrandig; gegen Ende im Bug fachmännisch restauriert. Provenienz: Aus der Sammlung des Beamten und Amateurastronomen Carl Lichtenberger (1796-1883), von diesem seinem Schwiegersohn nachgelassen, dem Chemiker Hermann Finzelberg (1842-1922) Direktor der Schering AG (am Innendeckel dessen Besitzvermerk, am Titel der Vermerk: "Aus der Hinterlassenschaft meines Schwiegervaters, auf Argelander's Antrag Doctor philosophiae h.c. der Universität Bonn, C. Lichtenberger's in Trier"). VD 16, M 6655. Burmeister 52. Hantzsch 214.2. Zinner 1854. Zinner (Instr.) 456. Graesse IV, 622. Nicht bei Adams oder im BM-STC.

Prima edizione in volgare (di Francesco Sansovino) di questa dissertazione del Fiocco sui sacerdoti ed i magistrati dell'antica Roma. Cfr. Bongi (I 75-76): "Questo libretto, che dal suo vero autore Domenico Fiocco. si finse composto dal latino Fenestella mille anni prima, fu tradotto da Francesco Sansovino". Andrea Domenico Fiocco, giureconsulto e umanista fiorentino morto nel 1452, usò nei suoi scritti lo pseudonimo di Lucius Fenestella. Caratteristica assai interessante di quest'edizione è la quantità di capolettera (ben 42!) che illustrano prevalentemente professioni ed attività, tra cui vi è la celebre raffigurazione dell'antico tennis.

      1544 - On offer is a superb ancient book VIA CRUCIS [Way of the Cross; Twelve Stations of the Cross]. "Domini Redemptoris ac Salvatoris Nostri Jesu Christim." Twenty-nine [29] printed pages detail the 12 stations of the Cross in the Cruxifiction of Jesus. Pagination begins at page 3 through page 32. Original binding, 4 bands, 5 compartments and while the original title page has been removed there are four [4] manuscript pages including a simple but beautifully handwritten new title page with the word Via rubricated leading to the Oratio. There are seven [7] pages in more lovely calligraphy at the end titled "Officium S. Spiitus". Followed by a number of blank pages. Seems like an ideal book for a pilgrim to record his own journey to the Holy Land. Handwritten is an 'ex libris' noting Ferdinandi de Graes [?] as the owner. The full leather binding is well attached, no cracks, but some small worm holes in the endpaper. Old pencil note dates the book at 1544. All indications agree.

      Basle H. Froben 1544 - EDITIO PRINCEPS. pp. (xii) 967 (i). *6, a-z6, A-Z6, 2a-2h6, 2i4, 2k-2z6, 2A-2M6. Greek letter, preface in Roman. Title page in red and black, Froben&#146;s large woodcut device in red, fine large historiated woodcut initial and white on black and strapwork headpieces, capital spaces with guide letters, ms. ex-libris &#147;Beatae Maria de Brolio Catalogus Inscriptus&#148; in later hand, c. 1700, at blank upper margin of t-p, faded, another inscription in lower blank margin, almost completely faded, substantial neat scholarly marginal annotations throughout in both Greek and Latin, with some underlinings, in an early hand. Occasional very minor marginal thumb mark, small tear restored in lower outer corner of a1, just touching text, no letters affected. A very good copy, with wide clean margins, crisp and clean, in late C19th vellum over boards, spine with four thick raised bands, title gilt in compartment, in folding box.
 &#147;[Froben&#146;s press] is remarkable for the number and importance of its productions, as well as for excellence of workmanship. In his desire for accuracy Froben surrounded himself with a number of scholars to whom he deputed the work of editing and correcting. Chief among these was Erasmus, who, after visiting him on several occasions, in 1521 permanently took up his residence with the printer and gave fresh impetus to the press" (The Printed Book by Harry G. Aldis). Arlenius of Brabant was a pupil of Gyraldus and also produced the first Greek edition of Lycophron as well as an important edition of Polybius. In 1542 he travelled to Venice, where he became librarian to the Spanish ambassador, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, cataloguing Mendoza's collection of Greek manuscripts, from whose library he obtained the manuscript to produce this edition. This work is dedicated to Mendoza. The beauty of Froben&#146;s printing, typography and layout does justice to the importance of the text; a very handsome copy of this seminal work.
