Originally from Auvergne, he served as notary at Châtelet, and later as attorney (procureur) for the Paris parlement.

TACITUS, Cornelius
1544. "The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws." ― Tacitus, The Annals Cornelius Tacitus was a 1st-century Roman historian who is now remembered for his two major works - 'Annals' and 'Histories' - in which he examines the lives and political careers of important Roman emperors such as Tiberius, Nero, and Claudius. By many accounts, Tacitus is considered the greatest Roman historian, not only by the accuracy of his content, but through demonstrating the psychological nature of ancient Roman politics. 'Histories' is one of the first written accounts to discuss the Great Jewish Revolt, an account that openly records combative attitudes between Jews and other cultures. 'Annals' was Tacitus's final work and covers the era following the death of Caesar Augustus, including the reigns of Claudius, Caligula, and Nero. It is also the earliest known secular history to mention Jesus Christ in which Tacitus connects Nero to the persecution of early Christians. The first and only edition of this early Italian translation of Tacitus's most famous works. [Attributes: First Edition]

Hans Sebald BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
Bulino, 1544, monogrammato in lastra. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1544, signed on plate. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters.

1544. In 8, [mm. 142 x 101], cc. (8) - 400. In pergamena rigida con titolo ormai sbiadito al dorso liscio che presenta qualche piccolo foro. Al verso dell'ultima carta, marca tipografica con figura alata con veste svolazzante che regge nelle mani una squadra e un morso (?), in piedi su un basamento in prospettiva dove sono le iniziali del tipografo. Tagli marmorizzati. Capilettera delle due opere decorate. Alla carta 1 nota di possesso: Joannis .... Annotazioni in grafia antica e sottolineature nel testo a riprova delle letture che l'antico possessore ne fece. Da carta 385v. inizia l'opera di Antonio Mancinello Un foro di chiodo(?) attraversa il margine delle prime carte. La c. 42 ha è stata restaurata in antico dopo uno strappo che ha allentato la cucitura, per il rseto buon esemplare a margini larghi con qualche piccola macchia. Errori di numerazione alle carte c. 255, 260, 276, 296, 303, 331, 389.

XV ed il XVI e divenne arcivescovo di Milano; nella lettera di dedica si indica come Canonico regolare lateranense. L'opera, dopo la lettera di Filippo Beroaldi al lettore, e la dedica del Mirandola al Protonotario Apostolico Ottaviano Arcimboldo ha, in questa edizione di Strasburgo, l'elenco dei poeti e l'indice delle materie cui si riferiscono le citazioni di motti e sentenze.

APIAN PETER/FRISIUS GEMMA
Antwerp. Woodcut, mm 190x274 (map) on a sheet 220x308One of the earliest obtainable world maps not based upon the works of Ptolemy and to show the outline for the entire New World, a scarce and interesting map on a truncated cordiform (heart-shaped) projection with explanatory text on wind heads in Latin and Dutch around. Based on a lost model by Gemma Frisius and published in Peter Apian's "Cosmographia .". Second version out of three very similar, being the first published in 1544; this second can easily be identified by the addition of names: The word Europa is now placed horizontally and the titles Angl and Scot appear against the island of Britain. South America is clearly recognisable but the northern part is shown as a narrow strip of land extending north-eastwards from Mexico and labelled "Baccalearum"- a reference to the important cod-fishing industry of the north-east coast that drew so many Europeans initially to the continent. The map is surrounded by a vividly engraved border of mythical figures, clouds and windheads, including three cadaverous wind heads representing the traditional plague-carrying winds of the south. There are a number of small drawings of animals and ships, and even a mermaid. The heart-shaped border of the map contains signs of the zodiac. Very good condition with original vertical folds, as issued

Condition: Very Good. Original Contemporary Hand Coloured Braun & Hogenberg Map of Amsterdam ________________________________ A very attractive and contemporary hand coloured map of the first view of Amsterdam still bright and rich in colour, from Braun & Hogenberg as part of their atlas of city views called 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'. Braun & Hogenberg's view is based upon a plan of Amsterdam by Cornelis Antoniszoon (1544), showing Amsterdam with its medieval walls and formal defensive systems. The view illustrates the unique Dutch form of urban plan with the Amstel River dammed near its mouth and its flow controlled by channels to the sea with an outer harbor created from the downstream portion, and an inner harbor from the upstream portion. The dam, located at the center, also provided the central plaza for public buildings. Numerous ships and fishing boats fill the harbors, attesting to the increased trade and commerce that Amsterdam was beginning to experience when this plan was published. COMMENTARY BY BRAUN (on verso): "Holland is the most fertile part of the Netherlands. It is crossed by many waterways full of fish, which ensure that in the whole world there is no other landscape in which so many cities lie within such a confined area ... Amongst these, Amsterdam is the noblest ... It lies on the River Amstel, from which many canals lead into the city. About twice a year many ships arrive here from all over Europe, some 200 or 300 from the Netherlands, France, England, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden and the other countries of the North. … [Click Below for Full Description]

FICINO, MARSILIO. - [THE MAIN WORK OF RENAISSANCE PLATONISM]
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, cho … [Click Below for Full Description]

Artist: Botero Giovanni ( - 1617); issued in: Turin; date: ca 1590. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 19 x 24,5; - description: Map shows total Africa, after A. Ortelius. Early map of Africa based on Ortelius and D'Anian. - vita of the artist: Giovanni Botero (1544 ? 1617) was an Italian thinker, priest, poet, and diplomat, best known for his work Della ragion di Stato (The Reason of State). Through the 1590s, Botero continued in the employ of Federico Borromeo, who would become Archbishop of Milan in 1595. Botero mixed in the high society of Rome and Milan in these years, and published another work for which he was to become quite well known, the Relazioni Universali. Released in four volumes between 1591 and 1598 (a fifth volume was finally published in the late nineteenth century), the 'relations' of the title referred to those of the universal (Catholic) church in various parts of the world, a treatise on- The Strength of all the Powers of Europe and Asia-, and even includes the Americas. The work marks the beginning of demographic studies.Finishing his employment with Federico Borromeo in 1599, Botero returned to the House of Savoy, to be tutor to three sons of Charles Emmanuel. He would tour Spain with his three charges from 1603 to 1607, no doubt associating with the closest of Philip III's advisors, from whom his ideas would be passed on to Philip IV's most trusted policy-maker, the Count-Duke of Olivares.Here is where Botero's work began to have an influence. Olivares seems to have used Botero's Reason of S … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antique styled full brown calf over wooden boards, blind-stamped borders on sides, spine on 5 raised bands. In slipcase. Strasbourg, in Knoblochs Druckerey (durch Wendel Rihel und Georgen Messerschmidt), 1544. This woodcut book is one of the main works in German legal history and important both textually and iconographically. It was written by Ulrich Tengler (1441-1511), and edited by Sebastian Brant (1457-1521). The illustrations mostly depict contemporary legal procedure and court practice, with dramatic examples of methods of extracting information and of execution. The text is an early influential German compilation of civil law of the 16th century intended for the non-Latin speaking layman. It includes examples taken from contemporary commercial practice, such as usury and fraudulent sale, as well as regulations concerning Jews and it gives the text of the "Jew's Oath", with an illustration showing a Jew swearing upon a Hebrew book (leaves XLIII, and LXXVIII verso). The text has a preface in prose and rhymed couplets by Sebastian Brant, and a Latin introduction by Philomusus, i.e. Jakob Locher, followed by a Latin epigram by Tengler himself. The work os divided in three parts. It contains private law, criminal law, and law of public institutions.

Artist: Botero Giovanni ( - 1617); issued in: Turin; date: ca 1590. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: colored; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 19 x 24,5; - description: Map shows total Africa, after A. Ortelius. Early map of Africa based on Ortelius and D'Anian. - vita of the artist: Giovanni Botero (1544 ? 1617) was an Italian thinker, priest, poet, and diplomat, best known for his work Della ragion di Stato (The Reason of State). Through the 1590s, Botero continued in the employ of Federico Borromeo, who would become Archbishop of Milan in 1595. Botero mixed in the high society of Rome and Milan in these years, and published another work for which he was to become quite well known, the Relazioni Universali. Released in four volumes between 1591 and 1598 (a fifth volume was finally published in the late nineteenth century), the 'relations' of the title referred to those of the universal (Catholic) church in various parts of the world, a treatise on- The Strength of all the Powers of Europe and Asia-, and even includes the Americas. The work marks the beginning of demographic studies.Finishing his employment with Federico Borromeo in 1599, Botero returned to the House of Savoy, to be tutor to three sons of Charles Emmanuel. He would tour Spain with his three charges from 1603 to 1607, no doubt associating with the closest of Philip III's advisors, from whom his ideas would be passed on to Philip IV's most trusted policy-maker, the Count-Duke of Olivares.Here is where Botero's work began to have an influence. Olivares seems to have used Botero's Reason of S … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARCHIMEDES.
Basle: Joannes Hervagius, 1544. First edition. First edition of one of the key scientific books of the Renaissance, representing a decisive step forward in the history of mathematics, containing the first printings of the majority of the surviving works of the greatest mathematician, physicist and engineer of antiquity. This is a fascinating copy with numerous contemporary annotations by a well-informed reader, both in the margins and in the text itself (in a minuscule neat hand that does not obscure the original text). In addition, there is a full-page manuscript entitled 'Cristiani Hugenii / Alia demonstratio propositionis 18 / Archimedis de spiralibus / ad paginam 111,' and including a large geometrical diagram, which provides Huygens' alternative proof to a proposition about Archimedes' spiral demonstrated on the facing page of text. This suggests that the annotator was probably a member of Huygens' circle. This book constitutes "the first printing of the original Greek text of seven Archimedean mathematical texts, accompanied by Jacopo de Cremona's Latin translation from a manuscript corrected by Regiomontanus, and the commentaries (in both Greek and Latin) of the sixth-century mathematician Eutocius of Ascalon" (Norman). "Archimedes - together with Newton and Gauss - is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever known, and if his influence had not been overshadowed at first by Aristotle, Euclid and Plato, the progress of modern mathematics might have been much faster. As it was, his influence began to take full effect only after this f … [Click Below for Full Description]

EPIPHANIUS (Santo) -
1544. In 4to (Folio antico); pp. (8) (di 12), 392 (ma 393 per salto di pagina), (17). Legatura coeva tutta pergamena restaurata al dorso, capilettera xilografati. Cancellazioni antiche a penna del nome di Iano Cornario, cancellazione antica con inchiostro di timbretto, stemma vescovile a timbro antico; verso della ultima pagina della prefazione coperto da maschera cartacea. Lievi normali fioriture e una macchia da umidità che insiste sull'angolo superiore di alcune carte, soprattutto quelle iniziali e centrali, senza mai essere troppo invasiva. Nel complesso ottimo esemplare di una edizione non comune. Janus Cornarius grande medico e umanista tedesco, noto soprattutto per aver tradotto e commentato Ippocrate, cura questa raccolta degli scritti maggiori di Epifanio di Costanza (310-402), vescovo di Salamina e Padre della Chiesa, uno dei più strenui difensori della lotta contro le eresie. Questo volume raccoglie i principali scritti di Epifanio ovvero: Panarion - in cui combatte 80 eresie -, Ancoratus, Anacephalosis, Libellus de mensuris ac ponderibus. La nostra copia, come sovente accade, è stata oggetto anche essa di censura, per questo mancano le prime due carte della Dedica a Johan Friedrich I di Sassonia, amico intimo di Lutero, capo della Confederazione protestante tedesca e Campione della Riforma.
