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]

POSTEL, Guillaume (1510-1581)
[Basel, Johann Oporinus 1544. .] Folio. [VIII],427 [i.e. 447, p.447 misnumbered 427], [29]p. Old manuscript vellum over boards, partly blackened and with some imperfections, upper joint cracked but holding. First blank detached, 8 mms of inner margin of title affected by old tape 'repair', a few stains but generally bright and clean. Early ownership inscription of a monastery library on title. Bound with another (incomplete) work. First complete edition. In this his great work Concerning the harmony of the earth' Postel advocates a universalist world religion (Christianity), a united world (under French supremacy) and a universal law (natural law), resulting in general world peace. The thesis of the book is that all Jews, Muslims and heathens could be converted to the Christian religion since all religions have common foundations and Christianity best represents these foundations, 'the love of God, the praising of God, the love of Mankind, and the helping of Mankind'. In the first two books Postel set forth the basic dogmas of Christianity and the teachings of Mohammed and the Quran. In the third book Postel treats natural law and the doctrines of the various religions. In the fourth book he examines in which way Jews, Muslims and heathens could be converted to Christianity. This book includes also (p.350) a passage concerning the evangelization of the American Indians. Guillaume Postel was a French humanist, linguist, familiar with Arabic, Hebrew, and Syriac and other Semitic languages, mystic, diplomat, and religious universalist, affiliated with the Company of Jesus, tho … [Click Below for Full Description]

Major, Georg
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.

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.).

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. More than 50 years later, in the age of Luther and of th … [Click Below for Full Description]

SFORTUNATI Giovanni
Bindoni, 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.

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.

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.

Pour dessiner ces caractères désormais connus sous l'appellation «grecs du Roy», Claude Garamont s'inspira de l'écriture du calligraphe crétois Ange Vergèce. Les poinçons et matrices qui servirent pour ces caractères sont classés "monuments historiques", et sont conservés à l'Imprimerie nationale. Les bandeaux & lettrines furent dessinés par Geoffroy Tory. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

MÜNSTER, Sebastian.
Sabin 51396; VD17 23:230709C (7 copies); cf. H.L. Ruland, “A survey of the double-page maps in thirty-five editions of the Cosmographia Universalis 1544-1628 of Sebastian Münster ...” in: Imago Mundi XVI (1962), pp. 84-97; for Münster: DSB IX, pp. 580-581. Most extensive edition of Münster's monumental, extensively illustrated description of the world, which set a new standard in the field, following both a regional and encyclopaedic approach. The first edition appeared in 1544, but it was greatly expanded over the years, the present edition adding many new maps. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through dozens of editions in 100 years and was of paramount importance for the revival of geography in 16th-century Europe. The book was printed by the heirs of Sebastian Henricpetri (1546-1627), the son of Heinrich Petri, stepson of the author Sebastian Münster. The 1588 edition (and the two following editions) contained a total of ca. 1280 woodcuts, which number was increased in the present edition with about 200.
