BIBLE, in Latin
Lyons: J. and F. Frellon for Hugues de La Porte and heirs of A. de La Porte, 1544. Folio (348 x 246 mm). Woodcut printer's device (Baudrier 7) on title, 91 woodcuts, including one repeat, in the Old Testament and seven in the New Testament. Early 20th-century brown crushed levant morocco gilt, spine gilt-lettered with monograms "VM" and title, gilt coat of arms of Prince d'Essling with his motto "Victor et fidelis" on both sides, edges gilt, by Lortic. Binding with a few minor scuffs; washed and pressed. Provenance: Victor Massena, Prince d'Essling (1836-1910) (binding); acquired from Philip Hofer, 1962. SECOND LATIN BIBLE FROM THIS PRESS TO INCLUDE THE HOLBEIN ILLUSTRATIONS; the first was printed in 1538. The text follows the Vulgate, edited with notes by Robert Estienne, which were proscribed by the theological faculties of Louvain and Paris and placed on the first papal Index. In 1538, Melchior and Gaspar Trechsel printed both the first edition of Holbein's Icones (including eighty-six of the cuts used here in the Old Testament), for the Frellons, and the first Bible to contain the Holbein cuts, for Hugues de La Porte. La Porte published new editions of the Holbein Bible in 1544 and 1551 with only minor changes in the cuts. Holbein's woodblocks, which may date from 1529-1530, were influenced by other illustrated Lyons Bibles, most notably the 1521 Bailly edition (itself modeled on earlier Giunta editions) and the 1520 Gueynard edition. Holbein's illustrations set a new standard for Bible illustration and were widely copied for later editions published in Lyons, Paris, Zu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Writing in ink on front cover, small damage poorly repaired. Clumsily bound wih a piece of green and pink rope. Pages slightly grimed in the margins but generally good. (18) pages court judgement on vellum, manuscript, calligraphic, text. First page lavishly illustrated with a coat-of-arms and decorated in the margins with flowers and animals. With gold in the text. Comes with a manuscript letter d.d. 5 January 1547, 2 pages on paper. This rare and beautifully executed court judgement comprises the patent of nobility for two brothers, Don Juan and Don Francisco Pérez, from the town of Cogolludo in the province Guadalajara (Spain). It dates from 1544, in the reign of Emperor Charles V, King of Spain. It holds the sentence of the court of Valladolid which, besides having their properties reinstated, also confirms their recognition as old noble status (hidalguia) after hearing evidence from elders (persons mentioned as being more than 80 and more than 60 years old) and respected inhabitants of the city Cogolludo. Contained within is the instruction pertaining to the return of their estates. Of special interest is the magnificent miniature detail on this parchment with a loaded coat of arms with several specific Spanish heraldic elements. The brothers seem to have objected on the 7 of April 1543 to being treated as ordinary tax payers (pecheros) and having lost their properties.

San Martino, M.
[Venezia, Giolito de Ferrari, 1544 or 1566]. Small 8vo (14.3 x 9.7 cm). Title page with large, engraved vignette[184] pp., contemporary vellum. Spine with black morocco label and gilt title. Red and white mottled edges. Apparently the first edition of this work in verse, perhaps in the "tradition" of Oppian. Written by Matteo, conte de (or di) San Martino (1494-1556), an Italian scholar and linguist. According to Brunet, "Cette édition ne porte ni lieu d'impression ni nom d'imprimeur, mais elle a sur le frontispiece le Phénix, marque Giotto de Venise". Interestingly, a smaller version of the same vignette is repeated on the errata leaf verso. The publishing date is uncertain. Westwood and Satchell date it from 1566, but 1544 has been mentioned as well. Cancelled bookplate on front pastedown (Harvard Library, from the bequest of Mary P. C. Nash in memory of her husband Bennett Hubbard Nash, Instructor and Professor of Italian and Spanish 1866-1894). Small cancelled stamp on title page verso. Otherwise a very good, clean copy. Brunet V, p. 110 [14934]; Westwood & Satchell, p. 188. Not in Dean. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

MELA, Pomponius and Gaius Julius SOLINUS
Adams M-1063 (incomplete); Chadenat 6400; Harrisse 112; VD 16, M2326. The first and only edition to be edited by Christianus Vurstisius of the pioneering geographical works two classical Latin geographers, Mela and Solinus. Vurstisius (1544-1588) was a professor of mathematics and theology at Basel and its first city historian. Mela's geographical survey of the inhabited world, the first geographical work in Latin, is preceded by Vurstisius's preface and an extensive index. It is followed by a geographical summary of the parts of the known world by Gaius Julius Solinus (3rd century).The woodcut map plates are numbered 1-33, but plate 33 contains 2 single-page maps and plate 26 (lacking in the present copy) contains 3 single-page maps, making 36 maps in total. Plates 28 and 29 were also printed on a single piece of paper, but were apparently intended for binding as 2 single-page plates, though in the present copy they appear as a single folding plate.With contemporary manuscript note on title-page, some underlining. Lacking 3 maps. Corner of 1 map repaired at an early date, slightly affecting the border, ocean and 1 small island, and tears in the gutter of one bifolium not affecting text, also partly repaired.

This Greek text was edited by Arnoldus Arlenius (1510-1582) together with Froben's in-house scholar Sigismund Gelen, working from a manuscript discovered by Arlenius in his cataloguing of the library of the Spanish ambassador to Venice, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (1503-1575). Froben set the text in the same fine Greek type he had used for the 1516 Erasmus edition of the New Testament.

BRAUN, Georg & HOGENBERG, Frans
Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. View. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 13.5" x 19.25" This plan of Amsterdam, based on Cornelis Antoniszoon's 1544 woodcut plan, shows the city with its medieval walls and defense systems. Published circa 1572, the map celebrates the city's booming commerce and trade by showing its rivers and canals teeming with ships of all sizes. At the center of the city is the dam of the Amstel River, which was lined with public buildings. Red colored roofs of buildings throughout the city accurately depict the common medieval style of Dutch architecture. Among them, the extravagant size of churches indicates their architectural and social prominence. A small key with two figures in the lower left corner identifies these and other important buildings, while text in the upper right corner describes Amsterdam's growing commercial prominence. The city's coat of arms is at the upper left. Latin text on verso. The map is in good condition with few chips and tears, not affecting the image. Candlewax stain on ship near center of bottom edge of image. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," first printed atlas of the towns of the world. The 6-volume collection comprised 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities, with Hogenberg's collaboration on the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. This plan of Amsterdam demonstrates the high quality of their work.

Hans Sebald BEHAM
1544 - 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. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Ald … [Click Below for Full Description]

GUEVARA, Antonio de
1544 Guevara Famous Marcus AURELIUS Letters Stoic Philosophy Meditations Venice “Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.” Marcus Aurelius Antonio Guevara, a 15th-century man of letters, grew up in the court of Ferdinand and Isabella in Spain. His major works include ‘Familiar Letters’, and ‘The Ten Caesars.’ His work, now, is considered of little more than historical interest, but his writing style and contents reflect the tastes of the court of Charles V, who he was writing for later in his life. The subject matter is considered rather trite, but it depicts Spanish life during the early 16th-century. This work opens with a view of Emperor Adriano followed by a lengthy biography of Marcus Aurelius and includes 115 published letters of Emperor Aurelius. Translator’s name, Fausto da Longiano, comes from dedicatory letter. From about 1530 to the end of the century a notable increase of Interest in Marcus Aurelius can be seen in Western Art. Guevara wrote this book hoping to capture some of the profits that could be gained from promoting Marcus Aurelius.

Hans Sebald BEHAM
1544 - 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.

Gemma Frisius
Anversa. Rara e interessante mappa del mondo con la classica forma a cuore introdotta da Peter Apian. La carta è basata su un modello andato perduto di Gemma Frisius e fu pubblicata nella celebre Cosmographia di Apian. Secondo stato di questa affascinante carta, con i nomi dell'Europa aggiunti. Una delle prima carte del mondo acquisbili nel mercato antiquario. Xilografia, area perfettamente restaurata nel Mare Pacifico di circa 8 cmq, per il resto in ottime condizioni. A scarce and interesting woodblock map on a truncated cordiform (heart-shaped) projection surrounded by a vividly engraved border of windheads, mythical figures and clouds. Amongst these gargoyle images are three cadaverous heads blowing the supposedly plague-carrying southerly winds. The map is said to have been based on one, now lost, by Gemma Frisius and was published in Peter Apian's "Cosmographia .". Three very similar woodblock versions of the map are noted, the first published in 1544 with this being the second, identified by the addition of names for Europe, England and Scotland. It is one of the earliest obtainable maps to show a complete, although very narrowed, outline for the entire New World. The second state of this World map which first appeared in the 1544 in Apian's Cosmographia, which was based on a larger map of the world prepared by Gemma Frisius in 1540 in Louvain, of which there is no known example according to Shirley (Entry 82). The map includes a Northwest passage, above which is a fascinating Asian projection. North America, called Baccalearum for its Cod fisheries. The narrow Strait … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Schreiber). This is also the first book in which appear the splendid matching initials and headpieces, which are considered "among the best of the printed decorations used in the sixteenth century" (Updike).

TITO LIVIO (Titus Livius)
Basileae : per Ioan. Heruagium, 1544. Tito Livio (lat. T. Livius) è uno storico latino (n. Padova 59 a. C. - m. 17 d. C.), autore di una storia di Roma dalla fondazione della città (ab Urbe condita libri) alla morte di Druso (9 a. C.). Di questa vasta trattazione in forma annalistica sono giunti a noi i libri I-X (dal 754-53 al 293 a. C.) e XXI-XLV (dal 218 al 167 a. C.) oltre a numerosi frammenti (come quello del libro XCI, su Sertorio, conservato in un palinsesto, e quelli del libro CXX, sulla morte e la figura di Cicerone, conservati da Seneca il Vecchio), cioè circa un quarto dell'opera che, come ci informano i sommarî (periochae) compilati nei secc. 3°-4° d. C., era costituita di 142 libri. L'Epitome è di Flòro, Lucio Anneo (lat. L. Annaeus Florus). - Epitomatore latino (in un codice indicato anche come Iulius Florus), autore di una esposizione in due libri delle guerre esterne e delle discordie interne di Roma da Romolo ad Augusto (Bellorum omnium annorum septingentorum libri duo o Epitome de Tito Livio), databile alla prima metà del 2° sec. d. C., di chiaro intento celebrativo e in stile retorico. Uno dei commentatori è Beato Renano, umanista (Beatus Rhenanus, dalla patria del padre, Rheinau; di cognome, Bild; Schlettstadt 1485 - Strasburgo 1547). Studiò in patria, poi a Parigi con J. Lefèvre d'Etaples (1503-07) e a Strasburgo (1509-10); nel 1511 si stabilì in Basilea, ma nel 1526, divenuta la città protestante, la lasciò definitivamente, tornando a Schlettstadt. Di fronte alla Riforma tenne un atteggiamento non dissimile da quello di Erasmo, difendendo Lutero in un … [Click Below for Full Description]
