Sander, 7671, in nota. Essling, 79: “Ce livre est particulièrement intéressant par la quantité et l’importance des bois dont il est orné, tous copiés de l’édition publiée a Strasbourg en 1502 par Johann Gruninger”.

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. The illustrations give an impressive and authentic portrayal of le … [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]

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]

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]

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).

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.
