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]

(lacking final leaf with printer's device). 17th century English reversed calf (expertly rebacked, new end-papers). EDITIO PRINCEPS OF THE COMPLETE KNOWN WORKS OF THE GREATEST MATHEMATICIAN, PHYSICIST AND ENGINEER OF ANTIQUITY.The first appearance of the Greek text is followed by the Latin translation by Jacopo da Cremona who used for this purpose a manuscript corrected by Regiomontanus, while the final two parts contain the first appearance of the Greek and Latin versions of the commentary of Eutochius to Archimedes' work. Latin editions of Archimedes' work had previously appeared in 1503 and 1543, but were by no means complete.Among Archimedes' many contributions were a method for calculating the centres of gravity, an approximation of the value of [pi], and system of expressing very large numbers. He was also able to demonstrate theorems which proved to be of use in solving mechanical problems by geometrical analysis. Archimedes also invented the compound pulley, ship-launching mechanism, the screw for raising water (now of course known under his name), burning mirrors, an orrery. This volume also includes for the first time the description of the heliocentric system of Aristarchus, who had conceived this centuries before Copernicus. The publication of this volume was a milestone in the history of science, by making Archimedes' theories widely available to the leading scientists of Europe and can be regarded … [Click Below for Full Description]

FABBRINI Giovanni)
1544. In Venetia, s.n.t., MDXLVIII. In-4° (21 x 16), ff. (4)+324 num. al recto; caratteri italici per il testo, tondi per il commento. Leg. piena pergamena coeva, dorso rifatto anticamente. Firme d'appartenenza al frontespizio, ma buon esemplare. (6300) rima edizione, alquanto rara, apparsa a Venezia stranamente senza indicazione di stampatore (ma alcune caratteristiche tipografiche fanno pensare a Comin da Trino). Questo volgarizzamento di Terenzio è di notevole interesse per la storia della lingua italiana, come si rileva dalla fittissima mole di commenti che lo corredano; inoltre contiene al termine il testo del Fabbrini Della interpretatione della lingua Latina per via della Toscana, apparso già nel 1544 a sè stante in una rara edizione romana, e qui ripubblicato con qualche variante in appendice a Terenzio. Esso è diviso in tre libri: "Il primo tratta di tutti i significati in volgare delle parole che in latino si trovano nel caso nominativo; il secondo riguarda i significati in volgare delle parole che in latino si trovano nel caso genitivo...; il terzo è relativo al significato in volgare delle parole che in latino si trovano nel caso dativo" (D.B.I., XLIII/p. 663). Nei volgarizzamenti di Virgilio e di Terenzio "risulta preminente nel F. l'interesse di carattere linguistico, con il quale si inserisce pienamente nel dibattito culturale in corso agli inizi del sec. XVI. La ricerca e lo studio del F. furono infatti rivolti, da un lato, a stabilire un metodo di insegnamento grammaticale che consentisse un più pratico apprendimento delle lingue classiche... dall'altro a p … [Click Below for Full Description]

Platina, Bartolomeo.
Per Jehan Real [for Pierre Regnault], 1544. Uncommon printing of this anonymous French translation of Platina's Vitae pontificum: the second illustrated edition in that language. Bartolomeo Platina (born Sacchi, 1421-81) was a leading member of the humanist community at Rome and a Vatican librarian, acclaimed as the author of the first printed cookbook, De honesta voluptate. His Lives of the Popes, which originally appeared in 1475 under the title Liber de vita Christi ac omnium pontificum, went through numerous editions and was for quite some time the standard papal history, despite its often critical assessment of the Roman Pontiffs -- its newly humanistic approach to the subject proved popular among Catholics and Protestants alike. This is the second Real printing, following the first of 1540, with a variant of the Regnault elephant and tree device on the title-page, and => more than 200 small woodcut portraits (with designs repeating in multiple instances) decorating the text. => WorldCat locates only one U.S. institutional holding of this edition. Provenance: Front fly-leaf with early, neatly inked inscription beginning "Ex libris Kaballisticis Stanisla[s] de Guaita, 1892." De Guaita was a French poet and mystic, known for founding the Cabalistic Order of the Rosicrucian. His collection of occult and esoteric works has been described as "the biggest private library of writings on metaphysical subjects, magic, and hidden sciences in general that could be found in France in that century" (Triangle of Light, online). Later in the library of American collector Al … [Click Below for Full Description]

Italiano, LXVII, p, 254: "Raffaele Maffei (1451-1522), legato ai maggiori umanisti dell'epoca, pubblicò nel 1506 i "Commentariorum..", autentico monumento dell'enciclopedismo umanistico, destinato a un'immediata fortuna europea e a rimanere in auge come massimo repertorio enciclopedico fino al XVII secolo. L'opera si articola in tre grandi sezioni: "Geographia" (libri II-XII), "Anthropologia (XIII-XXIII), "Philologia" (XXIV-XXXVIII). La prima è una geografia storica irta di riferimenti precisi a uomini e cose. L'"Anthropologia" è prima un dizionario storico onomastico in ordine alfabetico dell'evo antico, poi una rassegna per categorie e professioni di uomini illustri dell'età moderna. La "Philologia" va intesa nell'accezione di terminologia sistematica concernente i 'variarum artium rudimenta': animali, piante, metalli, minerali, grammatica e retorica, scienze naturali. Il capitolo 'De nominibus' del XXX libro tratta le etimologie volgari dal greco e latino; gli ultimi tre libri sono dedicati a compendiare l'opera filosofica di Aristotele". Frontesp. ben restaur. per manc.; con antiche postille a penna; uniformi ingialliture e qualche lieve fiorit. o alone margin., ma certamente un buon esemplare.

Perfetta legatura coeva in pergamena floscia con laccetti di chiusura miracolosamente intatti. Titoli manoscritti al doso. Esemplare in perfetto stato di conservazione. 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.

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]

Sebastien Munster
1544 - Date: 1544 (circa) Dimensions: 4 x 5.75 inches (10.2 cm x 14.6 cm) This lovely woodcut map by Sebastien Munster comes from his remarkable seminal work, the Cosmographia, or Cosmography as it is spelled here in German. Initially an academic who taught Hebrew at the University of Basel for more than thirty years, Munster had always had an interest in cartography and in fact published Ptolemy’s Geographia in 1540, and followed it with his own Cosmography, the first edition of which was published in 1544. This particular map is a pictorial description of islands and is designed to illustrate the text which accompanies it. Munster goes into some detail in explaining the physical appearance of islands, where they are more than likely to be found, and the processes by which they can be formed. The accompanying text is in German, both above and below the map, and on the verso. The Cosmographia continued to be published for almost a century. It contained both up-to-date maps and views, and an encyclopedic range of information on the known - and unknown - world: it was probably one of the most widely read books of the time. He was also the first to produce separate maps of the four known continents, and the first separately printed map of England. Of the leading cartographers of the sixteenth century, Munster had probably the biggest influence in spreading geographical knowledge around Europe. Condition: This remarkable map in A condition is hand colored, with slight soiling along the right edge and lower right corner. Minor offsetting in the right border.
