        Historia di M. Bernardo Giustiniano gentilhuomo Vinitiano, dell`origine di Vinegia, et delle cose fatte da Vinitiani. Nella quale anchora ampiamente si contengono le guerre de` Gotthi, de Longobardi, et de` Saraceni. Nuovamente tradotta da M. Lodovico Domenichi. (Text Italienisch).

      Vinegia (Venedig): Bernadino Bindoni Milanese 1545 219 römisch num. Blatt, 1 weißes Blatt. Flexibles Ganzpergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel, Klein-8°, 16 x 11 cm. (Einband etwas berieben, fleckig und wellig, Bindebänder fehlen, Vorsätze auf Spiegeln fehlen, Schrift auf Titel und unter Kolophon, einige Blätter mit dezentem Feuchtigkeitsrand, sonst innen sauber und erstaunlich frisch) Bernardo Giustiniani (1408 - 1489) war venezianischer Adliger und Diplomat und wurde um 1485 Mitglied im Rat der Zehn. Seine Reden und Briefe wurden 1492 publiziert. Berühmt wurde er durch seine Geschichte Venedigs \"De origine urbis Venetiarum rebusque ab ipsa gestis historia\", die ebenfalls 1492 erschien. Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist die erste Übersetzung ins Italienische durch Lodovico Domenichi (Piacenza 1515 - 1564 Pisa). Der bedeutende Drucker Bernardino Bindoni druckte zahlreiche Texte für die italienischen Humanisten, sein Druckerzeichen auf der Titelei zeigt eine Palme und drei nackte Kinder. Die gedruckten Initialen zu Beginn der 15 Abschnitte des Buches zeigen teilweise ebenfalls Kinder, ähnlich den Kinderinitialen von Holbein. Der Druck ist gleichmäßig und schön. Besondere Bedeutung bekommt das vorliegende Exemplar durch seine Provenienz: Bellisario Bulgarini war Dichter und Gelehrter in Siena (1539 - 1619) und Mitglied der dortigen \"Accademia degli Intronati\" und der Akademie von Venedig. Unter dem Kolophon hat sich Bulgarini mit der zweizeiligen Inschrift in brauner Tinte verewigt: \"Di Bellisario Bulgarini. etc. / Lode à Dio ora, e sempre. -\" und auf der Titelei: \"Di Bellisario Bulgarini Sanese, etc. / À Dio lode et onore.\" Dieser Eintrag ist dezent durchgestrichen und durch einen unleserlichen Besitzeintrag aus dem Jahr 1788 ergänzt worden. - Ein äußerst seltener Druck, über KVK konnten wir weltweit nur 4 Exemplare nachweisen! Daniele Danesi hat ein Verzeichnis der Bibliothek von Bellisario Bulgarini angefertigt: \"Daniele Danesi, Cento anni di libri: la biblioteca di Bellisario Bulgarini e della sua famiglia, circa 1560-1660.\" Das vorliegende Exemplar ist dort unter der Nummer 557 verzeichnet. Die Bibliographie ist über das Internet abrufbar. Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.

        De Discorsi sopra alle cose appartenenti ad una citta libera, e famiglia nobile; tradotti in lingua toscana da Giouanni Fabrini fiorentino . libri noue

      Aldus, Venice 1545 - ON THE ESSENCE OF HUMANISM FIRST EDITION thus. 8vo. ff. 278 (iv). Italic letter. Woodcut Aldine device to title page and verso of last, capital spaces with guide letters. Light age yellowing, blank outer margins of D3 and D4 re-margined (before printing). A very good copy, crisp and clean, in C18th Italian half calf over patterned paper boards, some worming to covers, all edges red. First edition of Patrizi’s Discorsi translated from the Latin by Giovanni Fabrini. A selection of "discourses", divided into nine books, the work covers a wide range of subjects including the principles of statecraft, the meaning of life (particularly the nature of virtue, health, honest pleasures and wealth), literature and the law. Patrizi, detached from the reigning debate that focused on the difficult relationships between the Church and the Empire, proposed a society based on the humanistic conception of autonomous man, freed from the ties of hierarchical power. Francesco Patrizi (1413-1492) writer, politician and humanist, was appointed bishop of Gaeta by Pope Pio II in 1460. Involved in the Sienese conspiracy in 1456, he was forced into exile in Verona, where he came into contact with various humanists, including the circle of Antonio Brognanigo. He wrote in Latin, being translated into Italian only 40 years later, by Aldus. The present work, in the Tuscan vernacular edited by the humanist Giovanni Fabrini, was widely read and won acclaim for its social and political realism in its discussion of new humanistic ideas. He is also known for his influential political tracts, De institutione reipublicae (1518) and De regno et regis institutione (1519). His other humanist works, largely unpublished, include epitomes, treatises on philosophy, letter-writing, collections of Latin poems and epigrams, diplomatic orations, and a history of Siena. He also wrote important early vernacular commentaries on Petrarch’s Canzoniere and Trionfi. A very good copy. BM STC It. p. 493. Adams P 443. Renouard 131:3. Ahmanson-Murphy Collection, 292.

        Rerum a Fernando e Elisabe Hispaniarum foelicissimis Regibus gestar. Decades duas. Necnon belli Navariensis libros duos. Annexa insuper Archiepi Roderici Chronica, alissqze historiis antehac non excussis.

      (à la fin:) Apud inclytam Granatam. Anno a virgineo partu millesimo quingentesimo quadragesimo quinto (Granada, Hermanos Nebrija, 1545). - 3 parties en 1 volume in-folio. 8ff. LXXXVI feuillets. + 4ff. CXXIIII feuillets (i.e.CXXII). + 2ff. LXXVII feuillets. 1f. Plein vélin souple du temps. Edition Originale posthume imprimée à Grenade sur les presses des petit-fils de Nebrija, Sancho et Sebastián, qui avaient retrouvé le texte dans les archives inédites du célèbre humaniste. Bien que l'ouvrage soit publié sous le seul nom de Nebrija, les cinq traités dont est composé le volume, répartis en trois sections distinctes avec page de titre et pagination séparées, sont en réalité l'œuvre d'historiens espagnols que Nebrija se limita a compléter, à corriger et à traduire en latin. La première partie contient l'Histoire des Rois Catholiques par Hernando de Pulgar et l'Histoire de la Guerre de Navarre par Luis Correa. La seconde partie présente la Chronique d'Espagne par Jiménez de Rada et la Généalogie des Rois d'Espagne d'Alfonso de Cartagena. Enfin, la troisième partie contient le Paralipomène d'Espagne par l'Evêque de Gérone. Seul l'ouvrage de Correa avait déjà vu le jour en espagnol en 1513, tous les autres traités paraissant ici pour la première fois. Malgré le fait que Nebrija ne soit pas l'auteur principal de cet ouvrage, son travail de compilation, de traduction et d'adaptation, incluant la modification de certains points du texte original et différents ajouts, constitue un précieux témoignage sur son approche de l'Histoire. "La primera edición de las Decades por su hijo Sancho en 1545 lleva antepuesta una pieza llamada Diuinatio. Escrita por el Nebrisense en 1509 y dirigida a Fernando de Aragón, con la clara intención de que le encargue historiar su reinado, encierra alguna de las ideas que sobre la historia tenía Nebrija. En contraste con Alfonso de Palencia, Antonio de Nebrija en esta pieza expresa con toda claridad y sin reparos el concepto de historia por él defendido" (Codoñer). Ce livre est par ailleurs l'un des chefs d'œuvre de la typographie espagnol de la Renaissance. Salvá, notamment, le considérait comme le plus beau livre imprimé de son temps: "No recuerdo haber visto libro alguno, impreso en aquella época, más magnífico que el presente: el papel es hermoso y la edición bellísima". Inscriptions manuscrites postérieures et diverses taches à quelques feuillets. Très bel exemplaire de premier tirage. Palau, 189342. Sur le travail de Nebrija historien, cf. Carmen Codoñer, "Tres cronistas reales: Alfonso de Palencia, Antonio de Nebrija y Lucio Marineo Sículo" in: "La corónica: A Journal of Medieval Hispanic Languages, Literatures, and Cultures" (2008), Volume 37, Issue 1.

This volume contains voyages by Giosafat Barbaro (Tana in 1436, Persia 1471), Ambrogio Contarini (Persia 1473-77), and Luigi Roncinotto (Ethiopia 1532, Persia and India in 1529). It also includes Benedetto Ramberti's account of the Turkish Sultan's campaign against the Portuguese settlement of Diu in northern India in 1538" (Atabey).

Lacking final blank leaf. 20 Woodcut illustrations depicting imagery from the "Apocalypse of John" accompany the text. Occasional woodcut decorative initials are also present. The title displays Ambroise Girault’s woodcut printer’s device. A clipped area (1.7 x 6 cm) in the upper outer margin of the title page is carefully restored using matching period paper (difficult to notice at first glance). The title is also marked with the addition of red hand-ruled panel lines, well executed, (perhaps done at an early date) imitating a style sometimes seen in 17th century English Bibles and prayer books. Interior contains occasional spots of foxing; the title shows some scattered foxing; a couple of words of extremely faint marginalia are present in the outer margin of the third leaf and p. 107 (Oiii). Bound in full modern off-white vellum over boards after an early style. Apparently at least 5 or 6 printers/publishers shared in the production of this edition; therefore several variations of the imprint and the title page exist. The colophon reads: Gulielmus Thibout imprimebat Parisiis in via vulgo dicta boni putei, sub insigni quinque speculorum, anno domini, M.D.X.LV. Mense Septembris. Rupert de Deutz (c. 1075 – c.1129) was an influential Benedictine theologian who later in life became Abbot of Deutz Abby in Cologne. He wrote many works of Biblical exegesis. Rupert’s commentary on the Apocalypse of John is noted by scholars (alongside the slightly later commentary by Joachim of Fiore) as one of the more original Apocalypse commentaries of the Middle Ages.

        Compendiosa totius anatomie delineatio.

      London, [colophon:] John Herford, October 1545 - Folio (398 x 270 mm), ff 44 plus engraved title and 40 engraved plates, one folding; margins of title frayed, not touching image, six plates with old paper reinforcement on blank versos, where the plate edge has cut into the paper, again not affecting images, a few incidental stains, some slight browning to some text leaves and a small area of marginal waterstaining, but still a very good, attractive copy of this work, in contemporary calf, gilt panels and fleurons on covers, rebacked and recornered. £95,000First edition, a very attractive copy of this famous engraved version of the Vesalian plates, the first appearance of these images after the Fabrica itself in 1543. It is one of the rarest and most beautiful anatomical books.'Although by tradition and Vesalius's own comments this work has been considered the first of the many plagiarisms of Vesalius's Fabrica and Epitome, Geminus gave full credit to Vesalius in a bold headline on the first leaf of text. He did, however, redraw Vesalius's woodcuts without permission. This is the second work [and the first of any consequence] printed in England with engraved plates. The new medium of copperplate engraving used by Geminus allowed a sharpness of line impossible for the wood engravers employed by Vesalius. This is in fact the first medical book illustrated with a suite of full-page engraved plates. The title page was called by Hind "the first engraving of any artistic importance produced in England". The book provided a summary of Vesalius's discoveries more complete than the Epitome but without the size and expense of the Fabrica' (Garrison and Morton 376.1).'Five years before the Compendiosa was first printed, anatomy had become an important subject in plans supported by the Crown to further good surgical practice. Henry VIII had, in 1540, given assent to an Act uniting Barbers and Surgeons into one Company, and in this same year another Act authorised the supply of four corpses of executed felons to be available to them for dissection. The Compendiosa was a text for such studies. It was dedicated to the king, who was said to have suggested that the Vesalian plates should be made available to English surgeons' (Roberts and Tomlinson, The fabric of the body).Thomas Geminus (ca 1510-1562) was a Flemish engraver who emigrated to England about 1540. He was also a publisher and scientific instrument-maker, and a surgeon until 1555 when he was examined and penalized by the College of Physicians for practising without a licence. He introduced copperplate engraving into England, and this book is the earliest large-scale production in the new medium. 'Engraved title-pages only become common from the middle of the century: the earliest English example, early even in a continental context, is that to Thomas Geminus' book Compendiosa totius anatomie delineatio of 1545. It shows a tableau in glorification of Henry VIII. Geminus was a Fleming and his pegma is a characteristic example of Flemish Mannerism' (Corbett and Lightbown, The comely frontispiece, pp. 7 et seq. with a detailed analysis of Geminus' composition).This is the first and greatest of the Vesalian sequelae. A second edition, with English translation, appeared in 1553 and a third edition in 1559. The plates were then taken to Paris where they were used for André Wechel's 1564 edition, and for Grevin's edition of 1569. The Geminus engravings were much more influential than the woodcut originals in spreading knowledge of anatomy in England and on the Continent.The plates comprise the title, the folding plate of Adam and Eve, 3 skeletal figures, 16 muscle figures, 5 arterial and venal figures, 4 neural figures, 6 figures of organs, 4 of the cerebrum, and one of ocular parts and surgical instruments. For the Adam and Eve figure, 'Geminus has taken liberties . with the celebrated nude figures from the Epitome, for the male figure in his cleverly copied plate now holds an apple instead of a skull. An enlarged skull is now on the gro

Frampärmens insida med äldre bläckanteckningar, delvis på svenska. Sista sidan med ett handskrivet ?H? och en stjärna i bläck. På främre pärmen senare tilltryckt C N D och årtalet 1651. Ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. VD16 K 2235. Ej i Adams. Bibl. danica II, sp. 593 & Warmholtz 2497 not, nämner endast den gemensamma utgåvan. Detta är en separatutgåva av Danmarksdelen av första upplagan av Krantz viktiga krönika om de nordiska länderna, med nytt titelblad och med Fredrik III:s vapen flyttat från s. (8) till titelsidan. Det är ett postumt arbete, skrivet 1504. Utgivaren Henrich van Eppendorf fann Krantz latinska manuskript i Köln och översatte det till tyska. I samlingsverket återfinns även Sverige och Norge, med egna titelblad (Danmark har inget separat titelblad i den gemensamma utgåvan). Året efter denna utgåva påbörjade Eppendorf utgivandet av den latinska originaltexten, ?Chronica regnorum Aquilonarum, Daniæm, Suetiæ, Norvegiæ?, vilken tryckes åren 1546-48. Förbättrade latinska utgåvor gavs sedan ut av Johannes Wolfius 1575 och 1583. Albert Krantz (1448-1517) var dekanus vid katedralen i Hamburg och lärd historiker och teolog. Hans verk om de nordiska länderna hade stor betydelse för den svenska göticistiska historieskrivningen, inte minst för Johannes Magnus, och föreställningen att goterna och goternas krigståg var en del av den svenska historien. Överhuvudtaget var Krantz inriktad på de germanska stammarnas historia, med verk om vandalernas historia (utgivet 1519) och saxarnas (1520), skrivna på renässanshumanistiskt manér, med retorisk utsmyckning efter de antika historikerna.

        Canones, et Decreta Sacrosancti Oecumenici, et Generalis Concilii Tridentini sub Paulo III, Iulio III, Pio IIII, Pontificibus Max [Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent]

      Rome: Aldine Press/ Aldus [Paulum Manutium]. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. EXTREMELY RARE FIRST PRINTING of the Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent, one of the most important publications in the history of the Catholic Church; printed by Paulus Manutius and Aldus the Younger of the Aldine Press and the request of Pope Pius IV. The Council of Trent (1545-63), was "highly important for its sweeping decrees on self-reform and for its dogmatic definitions that clarified virtually every doctrine contested by the Protestants. Despite internal strife, external dangers, and two lengthy interruptions, the council played a vital role in revitalizing the Roman Catholic Church in many parts of Europe. Pius IV confirmed the council's decrees in 1564 and published a summary of its doctrinal statements; observance of disciplinary decrees was imposed under sanctions. In short order the catechism of Trent appeared, the missal and breviary were revised, and eventually a revised version of the Bible was published. By the end of the century, many of the abuses that had motivated the Protestant Reformation had disappeared, and the Roman Catholic Church had reclaimed many of its followers in Europe" (Britannica).

        Il primo libro d'Architettura... Il Secondo Libro

      Paris: Jehan Barbé, 1545. Hardcover. Very Good. Fol. [37 x 24.5 cm]. (4) ff., 74 (i.e. 75) ff., including 1 blank (c8) and 1 unnumbered leaf (betw. i3 & i4). Bound in 18th c. stiff vellum, title label on spine. Faint marginal waterstain to final leaves; leaf with printer's mark dusty; minor repaired tear to folio 27; otherwise a very good tall copy. A tall copy of the first edition, first issue of the first two books of Serlio's general treatise, devoted to geometry, perspective and theatrical scenery, and as such considered "the first published account of modern theatrical practice" (Hewitt, The Renaissance Stage, p. 21). As with the whole of the treatise, the outstanding feature of these two books lies in their overwhelmingly practical orientation, a welcome departure from the highly theoretical, not to say abstruse presentation found in earlier architectural works (mainly translations of Vitruvius). Serlio's intention was to offer architects "a pattern book in which the architect could find solutions for all sorts of problems" (Blunt, Art and Architecture in France, p. 73). The work gives two methods for determining perspective, the second a form of the distance point method exemplified by its many woodcut diagrams and exercises. Book II also contains a detailed historical account of the theater Serlio built in Vicenza in 1539. The magnificent woodcuts of tragic, comic and rustic stage scenes "are the first regularly published scene designs" (Hewitt), and with their "Raphaelesque draughtsmanship" (so Kemp), they likely owe something to the hand of Serlio's teacher, Baldassare Peruzzi. The work received numerous subsequent editions in many languages, though the woodcut illustrations were issued only in this edition. * Fowler 303; Berlin Kat. 2563; Dinsmoor, Art Bulletin 24 (l942) pp. 73-4; Schlosser p. 374; Mortimer, French, 492; Vagnetti EIIb12; Kemp, The Science of Art, p. 66; Hewitt, The Renaissance Stage, 21; Kernodle, From Art to Theatre, p. 181.

Literatur: Bartsch 103; Pauli 101, I-II, vor der dritten waagerechten Strichlage in der unteren Fläche der linken Säule. - Sehr guter Abdruck. Provenienz: Sammlung R. Peltzer, Köln, Lugt 2231.. Hans Sebald Beham arbeitete gemeinsam mit seinem jüngeren Bruder Barthel Beham (um 1502 - 1540) in der Werkstatt von A. Dürer (1471-1528) als Maler, Kupferstecher und Zeichner. Nachdem Beham sich 1524 gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder der christlich reformatorischen Bewegung der Täufer angeschlossen hatte, wurde er 1525 inhaftiert und wegen Ketzerei der Stadt verwiesen. Auch nach seiner Rückkehr 1528 nach Nürnberg wurde er im darauffolgenden Jahr erneut wegen angeblich anstößigen Verhaltens aus der Stadt verbannt und ging nach München. Nach seiner Umsiedelung um 1532 nach Frankfurt am Main fertigte er zahlreiche Zeichnungen für Holzschnitte (Bibeln und Chroniken) und machte sich einen Namen als Kupferstecher.

      Venezia, Nicolini da Sabio, 1545.In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena molle; lievi tracce d?uso e qualche macchia. Con numerose formule aritmetiche, calcoli e diagrammi nei margini. 129, (1 bianco) ff.; diverse antiche annotazioni sui primi due fogli bianchi e antica nota di possesso nel margine inferiore del frontespizio; qualche macchiolina ma buon esemplare marginoso conservato in una scatola in mezza pelle. Terza edizione (con collazione identica alle due precedenti del 1534 e 1544), del celebre testo di aritmetica mercantile. Nell?introduzione il matematico senese Sfortunati cita e loda Pacioli, Calandri, Borghi e Feliciano, sottolineando tuttavia i miglioramenti apportati nel suo trattato. Indubbiamente l?opera ebbe un notevole successo e venne molto utilizzata da mercanti e uomini d?affari del tempo.

Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 174 - 177: «Sfortunati wrote his treatise along the lines followed by Borghi and Felicano... he was a popular writer, as the seven editions of this book go to prove. His work is fairly complete as to the operations with integers and fractions, and is satisfactory as to the examples illustrating the Italian business life of the 16th century?» Third edition of this influential work (first: 1534). Numerous arithmetical examples and various woodcut diagrams in the margins. Early owner?s name on lower blank margin of title and some mild soiling; contemp. limp vellum, a little loose and covers slightly stained; generally a good and large copy, preserved in a box.

Not in Cortot (due to his acquisition of this item either at the Landau sale in 1949 or later, after the publication of the catalogue of the theoretical works in his library in 1936). RISM BVI pp. 97 (3 copies in the U.S., all cited by Bernstein- Scotto). "Lucidario in musica was the fourth of five treatises published by the Florentine music theorist Pietro Aaron. Very little is known about Aaron's early life. Blackburn (in Blackburn et al., Correspondence of Renaissance Musicians, 88-92) speculates that his unusual name, his deficient musical education, and his reference to being born in tenuous circumstances intimate that he may have originally been Jewish... This is the only known music book dating from 1545 to 1547 signed by Scotto... Lucidario consists of a digest of Aaron's observations on all aspects of music theory." Bernstein: Music Printing in Renaissance Venice The Scotto Press (1539-1572), p. 897 "This work discusses many opinions held by different authorities on points of musical interest, and in it we find a list of some of the principal musicians of the day, both professional and amateur, including many ladies, so that the book is of great historical interest." Matthew: The Literature of Music, p. 28 "... Aaron held no formal position as singer or choirmaster, an unusual situation that might be due to his Jewish origin... [He] seems to have been largely self-taught; this may be the reason for his less systematic approach and questionable statements..., but also for his valuable insights into contemporary practice... He is especially informative on counterpoint and compositional process..., the modal system in polyphonic music and the application of musica ficta. He is one of the first theorists to discuss mean-tone temperament... [He] spans the generation between Franchinus Gaffurius and Gioseffo Zarlino. His roots lie in the teachings of John Hothby, Johannes Tinctoris, and above all in Gaffurius's Practica musice... Aaron owes much to his friend and fellow theorist Giovanni Spataro...; in the Lucidario Aaron quoted Spataro frequently... The Lucidario is an interesting and unusual treatise on a wide range of theoretical disputes: plainchant, notation and counterpoint, and further thoughts on topics from his earlier treatises, with replies to some of Gaffurius's criticisms of the Libri tres. Book 4 incorporates the 1531 pamphlet, a few more questions of notation and accidentals, a disquisition on the Greek mode-names and the famous list of singers 'a libro' and 'al liuto'. The Compendiolo, an elementary manual largely derived from his first two treatises, is of less interest." Bonnie J. Blackburn in Grove online

      (à la fin:) Barcelona, Carles Amoros Provençal, 1545. - Petit in-8. 4ff. CLXXIIpp. Plein maroquin brun, encadrement doré autour des plats avec fleurons dans les angles et un ornement central, dos à nerfs orné, tranches dorées et ciselées (reliure de l'époque, infimes traces de restauration ancienne). Précieuse édition portative en catalan, "de toute rareté" (Heredia). Elle fut réimprimée mot à mot sur l'édition princeps du texte original complet qui était parue deux ans plus tôt, chez le même imprimeur, au format in-4. "Poète valencien, digne de figurer parmi les plus grands écrivains du XVe siècle européen, Ausiàs March (1397-1459) rompt avec une tradition vieille de trois siècles qui voulait qu'au royaume d'Aragon la seule langue admise en poésie fût le provençal, et rédige son œuvre exclusivement en catalan. Véritable créateur de la poésie catalane, traduit en espagnol dès le XVIe siècle, sans cesse lu, imité ou plagié, inspirateur hier de Garcilaso de la Vega et aujourd'hui de Blai Bonet, il est considéré comme un poète difficile, obscur, dont la pensée et le style posent d'insolubles énigmes" (Encyclopædia Universalis). Parues pour la première fois en 1539 à Valence, dans une édition bilingue espagnol-catalan ne contenant que 46 poèmes, les œuvres d'Ausiàs March furent éditées à moins de dix reprises dans le cours du 16e siècle. Toutes ces premières éditions sont extrêmement rares, comme la traduction latine parue à Tournay en 1683, moment à partir duquel l'œuvre d'Ausiàs March tomba dans l'oubli pendant plus de 200 ans. Extraordinaire exemplaire dans sa reliure de l'époque à décor doré et tranches ciselées, d'exécution probablement espagnole. Cette condition est de la plus grande rareté pour les exemplaires de cet ouvrage qui furent pour la plupart reliés modestement à l'époque en vélin. Marge inférieur du titre découpée et refaite anciennement. Tache brune à un feuillet, quelques rousseurs éparses. Palau, 151295. Heredia, 1832 (qui avait racheté l'exemplaire de Salvá, relié postérieurement et affecté de trous de vers): "Edition de toute rareté; c'est la réimpression de la précédente, avec la seule différence que dans cette dernière l'explication des mots difficiles est dans la marge, tandis que dans celle-ci ces mots sont groupés dans une table alphabétique. Jimeno ne dût jamais voir cette édition car il l'indique à tort comme étant de format in-4". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [Colophon, f. xxvi verso] Seville, en las casas de Juan Cromberger que dios aya en gloria, acabose a ij. de Enero . M.D. [y] xlv años (2 January 1545). - Title page has woodcut arms of Emperor Carlos V, a good impression but printed in reverse (with the arms of Spain at the upper right and lower left), in front of a double-headed eagle surmounted by a crown, within a double-rule border (11.6 x 10.2 cm.); the whole set within an ornamental woodcut border incorporating dragons and floral ornaments. Woodcut initials (7- and 6-line) on verso of first leaf. Gothic redonda type, 56 lines. Printed marginal summaries. Tabla (f. xxvij verso-xxviij recto) in 2 columns. xxviij leaves, a@28. Folio (28.2 x 20 cm.), twentieth-century beige cloth over boards with earlier pastedowns and flyleaves of laid paper; crimson morocco lettering piece on spine with gilt-lettered short title and date; text-block edges with old marbling. Two small brownstains, faint dampstain, and a few flyspecks on title page. Very minor marginal soiling in rest of text. Overall in good to very good condition. A few early (sixteenth-century) marginal notes in Spanish and Latin, and some equally early underlining. ---- One of many editions of these laws setting out who pays taxes in Spain and how much. The earliest edition of the @Quaderno listed in Palau is Burgos, 1486; the latest is Alcalá, 1560. This is the last of the numerous editions by the Crombergers: it appeared the year Juan died. Palau lists Cromberger editions of 1510, 1514, 1520, 1529, 1535, and 1540.The 146 laws were issued by Los Reyes Católicos (D. Fernando and D. Isabel) and by "Juana la Loca," nominally queen of Castile and Aragon 1504-1555, who was imprisoned after 1509 on orders of her father D. Fernando and kept imprisoned by her son, D. Carlos (later D. Carlos I of Spain and Emperor Carlos V).In Spain in the early sixteenth century, the crown's main source of revenue was the @alcabala, a flat 10% sales tax that was supposed to be collected on every mercantile transaction. The laws reprinted here make it startlingly clear how many exemptions and changes were accepted into the seemingly simple flat-tax code. There are special laws applying to goods used on Crusades, goods captured from Moors in time of war, and fairs held in various towns. (Such fairs, especially the one at Medina del Campo, had become the financial markets of the sixteenth century.) There are rules for tailors, spinners, and rag collectors. Dozens of laws regulate landlords and tenants. One restricts Jews and Moors: "Que los judios y mores no sean arrendadores menores saluo en lugar que tenga jurisdicion y sea de dozientes vezinos arriba" (Law 58). One can also see the trend toward taxing basic foodstuffs rather than all sales. The @Quaderno includes dozens of taxes relating to those who sell oil, meat, wine, and bread.Although the title page states that these laws were issued in the @vega de Granada, the laws themselves mention Seville, Cordoba, Cadiz, the Basque town of Fuenterrabia (in Guipúzcoa), Guadalupe (Extremadura), Val de Palacios (near Madrid?), Villa Franca del Arzopisbado, Santa Maria la Nieva (Segovia), Valladolid, Madrid, Toledo, Cordoba, Jaen, Badajoz, and Ubeda (Andalusia).Revenues from the @alcabala far outstripped even the income from the gold and silver being mined in Spain's American colonies. When D. Carlos wore his his Holy Roman Emperor crown, his wars were still funded mainly by taxes such as the @alcabala, levied in Spain. When he could not raise adequate funds by such taxes, he had to borrow at rates as high as 43%. Collection of taxes was therefore a matter of great urgency. However, the income from the @alcabala was problematic: many towns had set a fixed sum that had not kept up with inflation, receipts often went to local nobles rather than the king's coffers, and, as is clear from this collection of laws, exemptions were frequent.The Crombergers were a publishing dynasty founded by Jacobo Cromberger, a German immigrant who was active in Seville from 1503 to 1528, and at the invitation of D. Manuel I of Portugal, printed in Evora and Lisbon from 1521 t [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Light waterstaining to upper margins of a number of quires. Contemporary French calf with eight small fleurons and gilt ornamental centrepiece. The binding rubbed, loss of leather to corners, upper joint weak and splitting. - Adams G-468; Caillet 4472 ; Risse, Bibliographia philosophica vetus VI, 74. "Giorgi, Francesco, c. 1460/6; d. 1540. Italian philosopher. Joined Franciscans before 1482. Perhaps studied at Padua in early years. Critical of Aristotelian-Averroistic doctrines. His De harmonia mundi combines Hermetic, Platonic and cabalistic ideas on astrology, musical theory, psychology and cosmology; depicts universe as a musical harmony governed by numerical laws. Familiar with the works of Ficino and Pico, although carefully avoided Ficino's magical interests ..." (Cambridge Hist. of Renaissance Philosophy, p. 821)."... the main theme of the De Harmonia ... is the generative process that from the unchanging 'lone' Monad leads to the multiplicity of things, and the reverse process which takes these things back to their unique eternal 'root'... F. Giorgio exalts divine creation that has moulded the world according to the 'Vitruvian' norms of the most perfect architecture and the sublimest music but he cannot and doesn't want to ignore the fact that evil has always crept into the world ... The worst of all evils, the greatest suffering that can afflict man is 'impiety' - i. e. an irremediable break in the divine bond between the soul and the Word, renouncing the celestial destiny which is the gift for those who free themselves from the perfidious toils of matter ... These are the premises on which Zorzi begins to develop his own 'wisdom' theology, which does not hesitate to tackle the most crucial religious controversies of his time ... Zorzi's theological development is quite independent and is even, at times, at odds with the scholastic teaching-tradition and its leading auctoritates. The themes are worked out with 'spiritualist' inspiration in ways and forms that were considered completely unacceptable by the censors, well aware of the risks for Counterreformation orthodoxy from such an esoteric interpretation of the fundamental themes of the scientia de divinis. Both Zorzi's great works were placed on the Index. This condemnation signalled that the Roman auctoritas would no longer tolerate this vein of hermetic, neoplatonic, kabbalistic religiousness, which in fact had become rather widespread beyond confessional demarcations ..." (C. Vasoli, Hermetism in Venice. From Francesco Giorgio Veneto to Agostino Steuco, in: Gilly/Heertum, Magic, alchemy and science 15th - 18th centuries. The influence of Hermes Trismegistus. Venice 2002, p. 50-67)."Giorgi's De harmonia mundi was not the work of a fantastic eccentric. It belonged to the centre of Renaissance thought at its most productive ... De harmonia mundi was a dominant philosophy in the Elizabethan age, and so likely to have been passed on, perhaps by subterranean routes, to Robert Fludd and the Jacobean age." (F. A. Yates, The occult philosophy in the Elizabethan age, London 1979, p. 29ff.).

        Historia di M. Bernardo Giustiniano gentilhuomo Vinitiano, dell'origine di Vinegia, et delle cose fatte da Vinitiani. Nella quale anchora ampiamente si contengono le guerre de' Gotthi, de Longobardi, et de' Saraceni. Nuovamente tradotta da M. Lodovico Domenichi. (Text Italienisch).

      Vinegia (Venedig): Bernadino Bindoni Milanese 1545. 219 römisch num. Blatt, 1 weißes Blatt. Flexibles Ganzpergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel, Klein-8°, 16 x 11 cm.. (Einband etwas berieben, fleckig und wellig, Bindebänder fehlen, Vorsätze auf Spiegeln fehlen, Schrift auf Titel und unter Kolophon, einige Blätter mit dezentem Feuchtigkeitsrand, sonst innen sauber und erstaunlich frisch) Bernardo Giustiniani war venezianischer Adliger und Diplomat und wurde um 1485 Mitglied im Rat der Zehn. Seine Reden und Briefe wurden 1492 publiziert. Berühmt wurde er durch seine Geschichte Venedigs "De origine urbis Venetiarum rebusque ab ipsa gestis historia", die ebenfalls 1492 erschien. Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist die erste Übersetzung ins Italienische durch Lodovico Domenichi (Piacenza 1515 - 1564 Pisa). Der bedeutende Drucker Bernardino Bindoni druckte zahlreiche Texte für die italienischen Humanisten, sein Druckerzeichen auf der Titelei zeigt eine Palme und drei nackte Kinder. Die gedruckten Initialen zu Beginn der 15 Abschnitte des Buches zeigen teilweise ebenfalls Kinder, ähnlich den Kinderinitialen von Holbein. Der Druck ist gleichmäßig und schön. Besondere Bedeutung bekommt das vorliegende Exemplar durch seine Provenienz: Bellisario Bulgarini war Dichter und Gelehrter in Siena (1539 - 1619) und Mitglied der dortigen "Accademia degli Intronati" und der Akademie von Venedig. Unter dem Kolophon hat sich Bulgarini mit der zweizeiligen Inschrift in brauner Tinte verewigt: "Di Bellisario Bulgarini. etc. / Lode a Dio ora, e sempre. -" und auf der Titelei: "Di Bellisario Bulgarini Sanese, etc. / A Dio lode et onore." Dieser Eintrag ist dezent durchgestrichen und durch einen unleserlichen Besitzeintrag aus dem Jahr 1788 ergänzt worden. - Ein äußerst seltener Druck, über KVK konnten wir weltweit nur 4 Exemplare nachweisen!

With 39 woodcut illustrations in text (including 15 repeats), each in a 4-piece border of foliated and grotesque ornament, usually with a coat of arms in the lower border, woodcut thistle initials. Gold-tooled calf (ca. 1780?), with large central arms of John Ker (1740-1804), 3rd Duke of Roxburghe, and crowned D & WS cornerpieces added ca. 1812 for William Spencer Cavendish (1790-1858), 6th Duke of Devonshire and one of the founding members of the Roxburghe Club. Rebacked with the original backstrip preserved.

      BMC STC French, p. 335; USTC 41284 (4 copies); WorldCat (2 copies). First edition of Claude Colet's posthumously published free adaptation of the first part of the Spanish romance Florando de Inglaterra (Lisbon, 1545), which claimed an unidentified and probably non-existent English original. Etienne Jodelle contributed a preface and a poem "Aux cendres de Colet." The fine woodcut illustrations came from the large stock of woodcuts made for the Amadis de Gaule, published by Janot and Groulleau from 1540 to 1556. The beautiful white thistle initials also first appeared in the Amadis de Gaule, in 1540. There are four different issues of the present first edition, all with Groulleau in the colophon, but other imprints and publishers' devices for other booksellers.With an early owner's name on the title-page and the armorial bookplate of William Cavendish (1808-1891). In very good condition and with large margins, with occasional very minor foxing. Binding rebacked and somewhat worn, with the loss of some gold-tooling on the spine. The Duke of Roxburghe's copy of a 16th-century pseudo-English romance.

A Rare and Remarkably Well-Preserved Example of a 16th Century Binding for an Impecunious Scholar. 171 x 102 mm (6 3/4 x 4"). 137 (i.e., 134), [2] pp.; 451, [5] pp.; 51, [3] pp. Three separately published works bound in one volume. EXCELLENT PERIOD FLEXIBLE VELLUM WALLET-STYLE BINDING composed of a single sheet of vellum folded around spine and fore edge, the edges overlapping on the front cover and held together with the original brass clasp and catch, flat spine with two apparently original exposed cords, vellum fragments of old (12th century?) manuscript leaves used as sewing guards, modern repair (approximately two inches square) to upper corner of left flap. In a fine recent folding cloth box with thick plush lining. Title page of Aesop with decorative woodcut border by Holbein; title page of Cebes with woodcut printer&#39;s device. Front flyleaf with modern armorial bookplate of Hermann Kunst. Rear flyleaves with six pages of notes in Greek and Latin in an attractive 16th century hand. First work: VD16 X 31; not in Adams, Schweiger, or Hoffmann. Second work: Hoffmann I, 64; Schweiger I, 13; VD16 A 420; not in Adams. Third work: not in Adams or Hoffmann; Schweiger I, 77 (citing a 1562 Paris edition translated by Theodore Adams). Front cover with very small tear in vellum flanked by a total of five holes (as a vestige of an early sewed repair), front flyleaves a little dusty, curled, and with a two-inch slit near the top (one slit with old, neat paper repair), first title page a little soiled, some of the text with very faint overall yellowing, but almost entirely quite fresh and clean internally, and the binding markedly well preserved. Containing three Greek classics with their Latin translations, mostly on facing pages, this is an unusually well-preserved specimen of a seldom-seen early binding style. In addition to Aesop&#39;s well-known "Fables," composed in the 6th century B.C., the present volume contains Xenophon&#39;s "Cyropaedia" (an early 4th century B.C. idealized biography of Cyrus the Great) and the "Tablet" of Cebes (a moralistic consideration, in the Socratic manner, of the significance of human life, probably not by the 4th century Greek philosopher it is attributed to, but rather by a pseudonymous author of the 1st or 2nd century A.D.). All three of our editions are obscure, and it is instructive to imagine how they would have been purchased--no doubt in original sheets--from a stationer handling the products of presses from Switzerland, Germany, and France and then assembled, perhaps by a university scholar, to provide an anthology of works likely meant for language study. Wallet-style bindings were used in the 16th century on books that were either very luxurious or put to hard use. Elaborately decorated wallet bindings might be used to protect precious manuscripts, while plainer versions were commonly used to protect ledger or account books, which were frequently used in open-air settings and which could encounter very hard wear. Few of these bindings have survived, and the present example is the first 16th century wallet binding we&#39;ve had in our inventory in 35 years. It is a utilitarian binding, simply stitched onto the text block, and with no embellishment other than the brass clasp--perfectly designed for an impecunious student or teacher who would appreciate inexpensive protection beyond that given by the usual book with the fore edge of its text block exposed.

        BEROSI SACERDOTIS CHALDAICI, ANTIQUITATUM LIBRI QUINQUE: CUM COMMENTARIIS IOANNIS ANNII VITERBENSIS

      [Printed by Johannes Grapheus for] Heirs of Joannes Steels, Antwerp 1545 - 171 x 114 mm (6 3/4 x 4 1/2"). [8], 300 leaves. Contemporary calf by the Pecking Crow Binder, covers with blind-ruled frame, oblique gilt fleur-de-lys cornerpieces, and the binder's signature gilt stamps--a hand clutching a spray of flowers, with a bird perched on top--at the center; raised bands, later but well-chosen endpapers, ink titling to fore edge (expertly rebacked in the style of the period, with simple blind and gilt decoration; corners neatly restored). Printer's device on title page. Front pastedown with later pasted-on manuscript note regarding the forgery; title page with contemporary ownership inscription of Fr[ater] Augustinus [illegible]; first and last page with shallow (and scarcely visible) blind stamp of the (now defunct) Theological Institute of Connecticut. Adams B-788. For the binding: Nixon, "Sixteenth Century Gold Tooled Bindings" 17; Foot, "The Henry Davis Gift," I, 129-38; Miner, "History of Bookbinding, 525-1950 A.D." 258-60. Covers a little marked and with minor staining (a narrow inner strip of upper board somewhat darkened and crackled because of rebacking), text printed on inferior stock (and so with overall faint browning), otherwise an excellent example with only insignificant defects, the carefully restored binding sound and pleasing, and the text fresh and clean. This is an early printing of an elaborate and influential literary forgery, offered here in a binding by the celebrated Parisian Pecking Crow Binder, favored by some of the greatest bibliophiles of the period. The Italian Dominican Giovanni Nanni, generally known as Annius Viterbiensis (ca. 1432-1502), came to prominence after preaching and then publishing a series of sermons in which he interpreted the Book of Revelation to predict a Christian victory over the threatening Turks. But the work that brought Nanni his greatest fame--and infamy--was the present book, first published in 1498. Produced at a time when scholars were becoming heroes for discovering and publishing unknown ancient manuscripts, the collection purports to be translations of lost works of several ancient writers, with commentary by Nanni. However, these "ancient" works were composed by Nanni himself, who went so far as to fake stone inscriptions in ancient languages and to bury them near his hometown of Viterbo, to be excavated and "discovered." He was intent on proving that Viterbo and the surrounding region of Etruria had been founded by Noah himself after the flood, and that the area's Etruscan civilization was thus more ancient and influential than Greece or Rome. He ascribed his fraudulent works to real authors, and Nanni's fake history ironically had great influence on the methods of later scholars: reliance on chronology, contemporary inscriptions, and official records superseded unquestioning acceptance of the accounts of ancient authors. According to Foot, the Pecking Crow workshop was active in Paris during the first half of the 16th century, though most bindings with this particular decoration were done between 1535 and 1550. The "bird pecking at grain" tool was first noted by Dorothy Miner in the exhibition catalogue she prepared for the Walker Art Gallery in 1957, and is heraldic in origin. The bird is combined with a tool called a dextrocherium, because its floral spray is held by a right hand (from the Latin "dexter" [right] and the Greek "cheiros" [hand]). The tools appear singly in other, more elaborate, bindings from the workshop (e.g., Miner 258 and 259), but are most famously seen together, as here. The patrons of our Pecking Crow Binder could hardly have been more illustrious, as they included Jean Grolier, Thomas Wotton, Marcus Fugger, and the French king François I. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Als Theolog hing er der mystischen Richtung, welche eine höhere Contemplation als den Gipfel des religiösen Lebens betrachtete, so sehr an, daß man ihn, wie den Johann Ruysbroeck, Doctor ecstaticus zu nennen pflegte. Dabei lag ihm, wie überhaupt den damaligen Vertretern dieser Richtung, die sittliche Reformation der Kirche in capite et membris aufs ernstlichste am Herzen. Das erhellt nicht nur aus seinem freundschaftlichen Verhältniß zu dem Volksprediger Johann Brugman und allen denjenigen in den Niederlanden und Deutschland, welche einer Reformation günstig waren, zu denen auch Philipp von Burgund und Karl der Kühne zu rechnen sind, - sondern auch aus seiner Theilnahme an der Visitationsreise, welche der Cardinal Nikolaus von Cusa 1451 durch diese Länder machte.

Jahrhunderts übersetzt und von J. Dantz und Georg Pictorio (siehe Hirsch IV, 564) in Tabellenform verkürzt herausgegeben. - Titel und letztes Blatt leicht stockfleckig. Sprache: N
