Münster, Sebastian.
1544. Folio (197 x 302 mm). (8), CLXVI, (2) pp. With title woodcut (sundial), 72 mathematical woodcuts, and printer's device on final page. Appealing contemporary binding using a 15th century vellum manuscript with red and blue Lombardic initials. Modern ties. In custom-made cloth case. Second German edition of Münster's manual on the construction of sundials. In contrast to most of his other mathematical and astronomical works, Münster's writings on sundials (gnomonics) "did indeed exert some influence [...] Zinner views Münster mainly as a successor to Regiomontanus, Stöffler, and Georg Hartmann [...] Münster turned his attentions to a large number of different sundials, and his importance as a mathematician, if indeed he had any, must be seen in terms of his importance as a theorist of sundials - which is to say, as a craftsman, for the science of sundials is not fully distinguishable from craftsmanship. It is impossible today to estimate how many sundials Münster built or how many were built based on his designs. There is no doubt, however, that his writings wide widely read" (cf. Burmeister, Biogr. Gesamtbild, p. 188). - Somewhat browned and fingerstained throughout; some waterstaining near beginning; gutter professionally repaired near end. Provenance: from the collection of the civil servant and amateur astronomer Carl Lichtenberger (1796-1883), then by inheritance to his son-in-law, the chemist Hermann Finzelberg (1842-1922), director of Schering AG, with his ownership and notes on pastedown and title page.

Botero Giovanni (1544 - 1617)
Artist: Botero Giovanni (-1617); issued in: Turinca1590 1544 - - 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 Ð 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 State to ou … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lando, Ortensio):
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 tradition 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. " [7 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

VVitembergae: (per Petrum Seitz), 1544 First edition of Major's work on the Church fathers, with a fifteen-page preface by Martin Luther. Contemporary pigskin over wooden boards. Both covers elaborately stamped in blind, using roll tools. Metal clasps and catches lacking. . Octavo. Title-page within a woodcut architectural border, two large decorative woodcut initial letters. Binding extremities lightly worn, minor worming to front board, last leaf, and both pastedowns. Lacking front free endpaper. Light dampstain at fore-margin of first several gatherings. Marginal chips to last leaf, one cropping part of a running title. Short old Latin inscription on front pastedown, twentieth century owner's signature and small book label also on front pastedown. Early ink underscoring in several places, early ink annotation at the end of the Martin Luther preface. A good copy. Georg Major (1501-1574) was a Lutheran theologian and one of leading disciples of Martin Luther, by whom he was ordained. He was appointed rector of the Johannischule in Magdeburg and in 1537 became a court preacher at Wittenberg. He served a long tenure as dean of the Theological School at Wittenberg, was a partner of religion and church policy of the Saxon Electorate, and was translator and editor of the Wittenberg Luther edition. He is known for his part in the "Majoristic controversy," which forced Luther's heirs to refine their definition of the relationship between faith and works, a controversy he felt reluctant to be drawn into.

Belle édition en caractères italiques sortie des presses de Robert Estienne en 1544, établie par l'humaniste et philologue italien Giovanni Battista Egnazio (1473-1553). Vies des empereurs romains de l'antiquité tardive composées à la fin du IVe siècle pour faire suite à l'oeuvre de Suétone, réunies sous l'intitulé Histoire Auguste. Contient les récits de Trebellius Pollio, Flavius Vopiscus et Sextus Aurelius Victor suivis des traités De principibus Romanorum d'Egnazio et Historiae Romanae Compendium ab interitu Gordiani usque ad Justinum III du professeur de rhétorique Giulio Pomponio Leto (1428-1497). Robert Estienne avait d'abord imprimé la même année dans une édition séparée les autres récits de l'Histoire Auguste (Dion Cassius, Aelius Spartianus etc.). Des recherches menées au XIXe siècle établirent que ces vies d'empereurs n'étaient pas l'oeuvre d'un collectif mais bien celle d'un seul auteur resté anonyme.Très bel exemplaire en vélin du temps. Marque de l'imprimeur au titre. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre du temps sur le feuillet de garde supérieur. De la bibliothèque du Comte de Macclesfield, avec l'ex-libris de la North Library (1860).

VALLA (Lorenzo)
Parisiis. Apud Simonem Colinaeum, 1544. 4to, 215 X 145 mms., pp. [xxii], 331 [332 text, 333 Errata, 334 blank], title-page within ornamental border, handsomely bound in fine 18th century red morocco, with ornate gilt borders on covers, double cone shape within gilt oval border on each cover as well, spine ornately gilt in compartments to a floral motif, all edges gilt; title-page mounted, spine very slightly creased, other slight wear to binding, but generally a fine and attractive copy, with the Kinnaird bookplate on the front paste-down end-paper - possibly that of Charles Kinnaird Eighth Lord Kinnaird of Inchture (1780–1826). Valla (1407 - 1457) published this volume in 1471, as the first textbook on the "elegances of the Latin language" since late antiquity, and it was used in schools all over Europe, though I somehow doubt that this sumptuous binding was the property of an 18th century British school boy. He was an enthusiastic polemicist, and his tart assessments of classical authors, particularly Cicero, did not win friends and influence people. He never married, but had three children by his Roman mistress. Ulick Peter Burke makes this assessment of him: "An aggressive man, even for that age of intellectual gladiators, Valla made enemies easily. A professional heretic, he was well suited for his role as a critic of authority and orthodoxy. As one colleague observed about his notorious comparison of Cicero and Quintilian: Valla wrote simply to disturb people. There is no doubt about his success in this respect.

MDXLIIII. (in fine:) In Venezia, Bernardino Bindoni, 1545, 1544. in-4, ff. 129, (1 bianco), bel caratt. tondo. Leg. posteriore p.perg. rigida. Titolo entro ricca bordura silografata con figure; grande impresa dello stampatore in fine, numerosi schemi, calcoli e formule aritmetiche poste nei margini delle pagine. Precede l'opera la dedica dell'a. ad Afonso d'Este. Seconda edizione (prima Venezia, Zoppino 1534) di questo fortunato trattato popolare di aritmetica pratica, utile strumento per la gestione degli affari dei mercanti del XVI secolo. L'uso diffuso nel XVI secolo del volume come manuale aritmetico pratico fa sì che, benché ristampato 7 volte, tutte le edizioni siano oggi estremamente rare. Ricco di spunti tratti dal Borghi e dal Feliciano, il lavoro dello Sfortunati, matematico senese vissuto nel XVI secolo, risulta particolarmente interessante per l'inserimento di tavole mercantili e di misurazioni pratiche. Buon esemplare. Adams S-1043. Sander, 6965. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Münster, Sebastian.
1544. Folio (197 x 302 mm). (8), CLXVI, (2) pp. With title woodcut (sundial), 72 mathematical woodcuts, and printer's device on final page. Appealing contemporary binding using a 15th century vellum manuscript with red and blue Lombardic initials. Modern ties. In custom-made cloth case. Second German edition of Münster's manual on the construction of sundials. In contrast to most of his other mathematical and astronomical works, Münster's writings on sundials (gnomonics) "did indeed exert some influence [...] Zinner views Münster mainly as a successor to Regiomontanus, Stöffler, and Georg Hartmann [...] Münster turned his attentions to a large number of different sundials, and his importance as a mathematician, if indeed he had any, must be seen in terms of his importance as a theorist of sundials - which is to say, as a craftsman, for the science of sundials is not fully distinguishable from craftsmanship. It is impossible today to estimate how many sundials Münster built or how many were built based on his designs. There is no doubt, however, that his writings wide widely read" (cf. Burmeister, Biogr. Gesamtbild, p. 188). - Somewhat browned and fingerstained throughout; some waterstaining near beginning; gutter professionally repaired near end. Provenance: from the collection of the civil servant and amateur astronomer Carl Lichtenberger (1796-1883), then by inheritance to his son-in-law, the chemist Hermann Finzelberg (1842-1922), director of Schering AG, with his ownership and notes on pastedown and title page.

Giovio, Paolo.
1544. 8vo. 50, (2) ff. With small woodcut on final page. Contemp. vellum with ms. spine title ("Vita Di Scanderbec"). Extremely rare account of the military resistance to Ottoman rule in Albania, led by the Albanian noble George Kastrioti (1405-68), widely known as "Skanderbeg" (from Turkish 'Iskender Bey', 'Lord Alexander'). "A synopsis of Paolo Giovio's 'Commentario delle cose de Turchi' and Marinus Barleti's 'Historia de vita et gestis Scanderbegi'" (cf. Göllner), two of the principal 16th-century works on the man who, as most of the Balkans came under the suzerainty of the Ottoman Empire, increasingly was perceived as the late hero of the western world. "Skanderbeg's military skills presented a major obstacle to Ottoman expansion, and he was considered by many in western Europe to be a model of Christian resistance against the Ottoman Muslims. Skanderbeg is Albania's most important national hero and a key figure of the Albanian National Awakening" (Wikipedia). - Some brownstaining throughout. Formerly in the Ottoman collection of the Swiss industrialist Herry W. Schaefer. Edit 16, CNCE 21160. Pétrovitch 20. Göllner 827. Cf. Brunet III, 586.

Münster, Sebastian.
1544. (8), 290, (2 [statt 30]) SS. Mit großer Holzschnittdruckermarke am letzten Bl. verso. Neurer brauner Pappband. 4to. In maßgefertigter Leinenkassette. Die zweite Ausgabe dieser berühmten Grammatik, erstmals 1542 erschienen. "Der Brief des Baillivius ist weggefallen. Ebenso ist das - nunmehr undatierte - Vorwort nicht mehr an diesen, sondern allgemein, wie üblich, an die Hebraicae Linguae Studiosi gerichtet. Gleichzeitig sind infolgedessen die persönlich gehaltenen Stellen am Anfang und Schluß in Wegfall gekommen. Jene sind ersetzt durch einen Hinweis auf des Verfassers Leistungen für das Studium der hebräischen und chaldäischen Sprache während eines Zeitraums von über 20 Jahren" (Prijs). "[E]nthält die Summe des grammatischen Wissens Münsters, die Summe einer 30jährigen Arbeit, die er mit diesem Werk zum Abschluß brachte. Aber das Werk enthält nicht nur das eigene Wissen Münsters, sondern berücksichtigt fast die gesamte Forschung seit Reuchlin, sowohl die christliche als auch die jüdische, die deutsche und die ausländische [...] Nach bewährtem Beispiel wurde wieder ein Übungstext angehängt, und zwar das apokryphe Buch Tobias [...] Münster sah diese Grammatik als endgültig an und arbeitete fortan keine neue mehr aus [...] Das Opus grammaticum consummatum erwies sich auch tatsächlich als eine perfektionierte Arbeit, die zahlreiche Auflagen erlebte" (Burmeister, Biogr. Gesamtbild, S. 69). "Als Hebraist nimmt [Münster] in Deutschland nach Reuchlin eine der ersten Stellen ein" (ADB XXIII, S. 30). - Etwas gebräunt und wasserrandig; die Seitenränder teils leicht unregelmäßig … [Click Below for Full Description]

VITRUVIUS MARCUS (I secolo a.C.). PHILANDRIER GUILLAUME (1505-1565).
Roma, Andrea Dossena, 1544. In - 8ø; 8 cc., 370 pp., 19 cc., il testo Š illustrato da numerose incisioni xilografiche; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida con unghie, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Ottimo esemplare appartenuto a Giuseppe Storck (1766 - 1836), firma di possesso al titolo. Prima edizione del commento di Guillaume Philandrier a Vitruvio, importante sia per la qualit... delle annotazioni contenute (lo studio fu apprezzato al pari dei commenti del Cesariano e del Barbaro) sia per il contributo che ebbe alla diffusione del testo vitruviano nei paesi del Nord Europa. L'autore si avvalse del Codice di Sulpizio e di molte altre informazioni che ebbe dal Serlio, del quale fu allievo. "Annotationes was the third commentary on Vitruvius to be published and the first to appear unaccompanied by the full Vitruvius text. Philander's commentary is composed of sections of the text followed by practical explanations and definitions, each passage heavily reinforced with scolarly and classical examples? Philander's work is at once a learned study and a practical manual of architecture, incorporating the methods of both the humanists and architects. It is the first synthesis of academic and practical interpretations of Vitruvius' treatise to appear in published form. The contribution of Philander and of the Accademia delle Virt-- to mid - sixteenth - century architectural theory is of the greatest importance." (Millard). Fowler 403. Cicognara 708. Millard, French books nø 165. Schlosser Magnino, pp. 252 - 253.
