        Title in Greek: Stoicheion biblia ie]; Euclidis Elementorum libri XV.

      Antonio Blado, Rome 1545 - 14cm; [109], [3 blank] pages. Text in Greek (except the dedicatory epistle from Angelo Caiano to Antonio Altoviti, in Latin). Woodcut portrait figure on title page; woodcut historiated initial. Bound in contemporary flexible vellum with overlapping fore-edges. Binding quite soiled with long split along upper joint, peeling a bit onto spine. Text clean, bright, with good margins and no blemishes. References: Thomas-Stanford, #26; Adams, E-996. A Greek edition of Euclid that includes, by design, the Propositions only (without proofs or diagrams). The Sixteenth Century believed that the Demonstrations were the work of a later commentator, a belief that was disproved by Henry Savile early in the 1600s. In true Humanist fashion, the editor of this text, Angelo Caiano, sought to pare away later accretions considered extraneous to the original text, leaving the Propositions only. The printer, Antonio Blado, has not inherited the popular recognition that fell to his contemporary peers, Paolo Manuzio and Bernardo and Benedetto Giunta. This repressed fame is due in part to Blado's onerous obligations as printer to the Apostolic Camera. Nevertheless, he took initiative, under patronage of Cardinals Farnese and Cervini, to produce fine humanist editions of Greek texts, both classical and patristic, from manuscripts in the Vatican Library. For this project, he studied Greek typography with Paolo Manuzio, gathered an impressive working group of Greek scholars, and entered into a sort of partnership with the Giunta. The venture ran out of money after only a few remarkable and high-priced editions. In order to bring matters under control, Blado commissioned a smaller Greek font from Giovanni Onorio Magliese, head of the Vatican Library's Greek division. The new Greek types make their debut in this volume of Euclid, which Blado struck of his own accord apart from the larger project. He called in the humanist Angelo Caiano to prepare the Greek text and produce an Italian translation, published as a "companion volume" (Thomas-Stanford) the same year. The volume was dedicated to the 24-year-old Antonio Altoviti, later Bishop of Florence and secretary to Pope Paul III. The result is the first Greek edition of a Euclidian text printed in Italy, preceded only by the Basel editio princeps of 1533 and the Paris edition of 1536. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        De dissectione partium corporis humani.

      Paris, Simon de Colines, 1545. Folio. 17th century full mottled calf, neatly rebacked preserving the old spine. Title-page a bit dusty and strengthened at inner margin, on blank verso. A small closed tear to inner margin of 2nd leaf, no loss. Last leeaf with a repair to lower corner, no loss of text. Last three pages a bit dusty. A few repaired marginal tears, no loss. Light age yellowing and here and there some soiling and spotting (presumably due to medical use). All in all a good, well-margined copy. (24), 375, (1) pp. Printer's device to title-page, lovely woodcut initials, 62 full-page anatomical woodcuts, and ab. 100 sall medical illustrations to the text. With the 16t century autograph owner signature of Robert Westhawe to title-page and the manuscript ex libris of William Paschall (dated October 1646) to verso of last leaf. Wit Paschall's occasional marginalia.. The very rare first edition of one of the most important works in the history of medicine, being the first published work to include illustrations of the whole external venous, arterial, and nervous systems, and the most magnificent anatomical atlas of the sixteenth century, next to Vesalius' "Fabrica". Although the work was published two years after Vesalius', the anatomy itself is pre-Vesalian and antedates the "Fabrica" by some years in actual composition. "This magnificent folio volume is one of the finest of all anatomical treatises." (Heirs of Hippocrates). "One of the finest woodcut books of the French Renaissance, in which science and art are ideally merged." (Schreiber). It is down to coincidence and a complicated lawsuit that Vesalius's anatomy appeared before Estienne's and thus stole the thunder.Charles Estienne was a member of the famous family of printers (and scholars) bearing the same name. He received his medical degree from the University of Paris of 1542, but had been at work on this his anatomical magnum opus for many years. When Charles's father died in 1520, his mother married Simon de Colines, the famous printer, who also published the present work. It was in Colines's house that Charles Estienne found many of the valuable woodblocks that serve as basis for the magnificent illustrations in the "De Dissectione". The work is divided into three parts, the first two illustrated with full-page woodcuts, the third with smaller woodcut figures in the text. The first woodcut in the text is signed "S.R.", presumably referring to Stephanus Riverus (Estienne de la Riviere), Charles Estienne's friend and co-producer of this magnificent work. Riviere, who was at the time surgeon, artist, and engraver, is supposed to have prepared the drawings for the anatomical details. Eight of the woodcuts are signed by Jean Jollat, a celebrated Parisian engraver. Several of the Jollat blocks bear the dates 1530, 1531, and 1532 and a cutter's signature that points to the workshop of the eminent artist and typographer Geofroy Tory. Most of the magnificent full-page figures have the anatomical portions on separate smaller wood-blocks inserted into the large one. These artistically drawn figures are also interesting in themselves. They are shown in unusual poses against unusual backgrounds. Some are depicted hooked up on trees, sprawling in great chairs, etc. Almost all of them are quite remarkable and many are morbid. They were seemingly all created around 1530 when the first woodcut is dated. Presumably they then came into the possession of Simon de Colines and Geofroy Troy, who was his favourite engraver, who may have wanted to use them for an anatomical atlas for artists. There may have been be several different reasons why Collines never used them, but still kept them in his printing house. In 1538 Charles Estienne, who was a surgeon, decided together with Estienne de la Riviere to prepare a new book of anatomy using the highly valuable, but hitherto discarded, blocks which lay in his stepfather's printing house. Some of them were used as they were, but most of them underwent the appropriate modifications by means of insets. Riviere presumably dissected a corpse to serve as a model for the skeleton figures, and may also have contributed the anatomical details for the insets. Anyway, in 1539, Riviere lodged a complaint before the Parliament against Charles Estienne's claiming of the author's right. This lawsuit delayed the publication of the work, two-thirds of which had already been printed, and only in 1541 could it be submitted to the Faculty of Medicine for approval. "Had "De dissectione" been published in 1539, there is no question that it would have stolen much of the thunder from Vesalius' "Fabrica...". Despite its tardy appearance, however, "De dissectione" was able tomake numerous original contributions to anatomy, including the first published illustrations of the whole external and venous nervous systems, and descriptions of the morphology and purpose of the "feeding holes" of bones, the tripartite composition of the sternum, the valvulae in the hepatic veins and the scrotal septum. In addition, the work's eight dissections of the brain give more anatomical detail than had previously appeared" (Norman).In the preface, Estienne tells that printing was interrupted in 1539 and complains of plagiarism during the six years that the work was delayed. "The costly book was eventually published in 1545, followed in 1546 by the French edition. By that time, however, Vesalius had stolen the show... Herrlinger means that Vesalius profited from Estienne's illustrations after having encountered them during his stay in Paris from 1533 to 1536, when the majority of the woodcuts were already completed." (Hagelin).No matter what, the quality of the plates is extraordinary, and combined with the text, the importance of this work in the history of medicine and art is overwhelming. Choulant describes the work of the engravers as "particularly excellent", and the text "is particularly significant from the view point of the history of anatomic discoveries, since Estienne himself was a dissector and began his work long before Vesalius" (Choulant)."Estienne's best department is, perhaps that of arthrology. He was the first to trace blood vessels into the substance of bone. He was the first to remark upon the valves of the veins. Most remarkable of his observations is that of the canal in the spinal cord." (Singer).The present copy has a highly interesting provenance:ROBERT WESTHAW was an astrologer, prognosticator, author of almanacks, and quack doctor who flourished in the last quarter of the 16th century. His almanacks contained medical information apparently derived, in part at least, from the present volume.WILLIAM PASCHALL (1608-1670) was a pewterer in Bristol. His son, Thomas, emigrated to Philadelphia in 1684, and purchased land from William Penn. He became a prominent member of the Provincial Assembly and Common Council. The present volume may have come with his to the US. Stillwell: 626G&M: 378.Wellcome: 6076.Heirs of Hippocrates: 153.Hagelin, Rare and Important Medical Books in the Library of the Karolinska Institute. Pp. 26-31.Schreiber: 222Norman: 728.Choulant: pp. 152-55"First published work to include illustrations of the whole external venous and nervous systems." (G&M)."Illustrated with 56 figures based upon Estienne's dissections and observations. Contains the first published illustrations presenting the venous, arterial, and nervous systems in their entirety. Five of the cuts bear the Lorraine cross, the mark of Geofroy Tory. Several of the figures are dated 1530, 1531, or 1532, and the cuts reveal that blocks showing a detail of a given area were in various instances superimposed upon a more simply drawn figure, the detail being nortised into the main cut. According to Mr. Albert E. Lownes's description of the copy in his collection, for instance, "there are 62 full-page woodcuts, but six of them are repeated, so that there are only 56 different blocks. Thirty-eight of these have mortises with the anatomical details. Four of the blocks have two mortises." By 1539 the work itself was completed to the middle of the last section. Although not printed until after Vesalius's "Fabrica", the writing of the present text antedated the latter's publication by some years." (Stillwell). "This magnificent folio volume is one of the finest of all anatomical treatises. Certainly it was the finest printed in France in its century, and the sixty-two full-page woodcuts, artistically presenting the anatomical subjects in special poses before unusual background settings, are unusually sumptuous and imaginative. The anatomy itself is pre-Vesalian..." (Heirs of Hippocrates)."First edition of one of the great woodcut books of the French Renaissance and the most magnificent anatomical atlas of the sixteenth century next to Vesalius' "Fabrica". A French edition by the same printer followed in 1546, which has two additional full-page woodcuts... Although Estienne's anatomical atlas was published two years after the "Fabrica" of Vesalius, it antedates it in actual composition." (Hagelin, p. 26)

        ALS ("Martinus Luther D.").

      N. p., 20. III. 1545.. 1 p. Folio.. In German, to the elector Johann Friedrich von Gerolstein (1503-54), known as the "Champion of the Reformation". In his letter adressed to the Prince and Lord John Frederick, Duke of Saxony, Grand Marshal of the Holy Empire and Elector, Martin Luther updates his correspondent on the placement of his disciples throughout Europe. On the subject of a pastor at Altenburg, which apparently was of primary concern to John Frederick, Luther writes: "I have delayed my answer regarding the matters pertaining to Altenberg for good reasons, the foremost being that Master Andrew [Hugel, who had been a pastor at Amberg in the upper Palatinate, northern Bavaria, to be recalled to his former pastorate] has been waiting every day for a letter and a reply so that he would know what the situation is. Him [Master Andrew Hugel] I would have liked to see [at Altenburg] instead of Master [George] Spalatin. Now he [Hugel] is bound by his consent, the people of Amberg are here to fetch him...". Luther proceeds to acknowledge how fortunate they are to have an abundance of young theologians, but notes that so many of them have had to go to regions outside of Saxony that it is extremely difficult to procure whom and what their followers desire. He notes, "After all, some of our disciples are already in Turkey and now and then also in Hungary as pastors and preachers... the cities attract [or train] very few students and [our followers] think we have people in abundance to send them...". Luther continues his discussion of a pastor for Altenburg mentioning Philipp Melanchthon who has been helping him in this search: "Accordingly, Master Philipp [Melanchthon] and I have been looking about and pondered whether Master Augustine [Himmel] and Colditz should not have been called. However, it is said that he is in poor health. One might therefore also think of the one at Jessen [Wolfgang Brauer], for he contemplates leaving there. Finally we have thought of the teacher at Altenburg [Andrew Misenus], who is learned and old enough, also quite experienced in ecclesiastical matters and moreover, known at Altenburg. Him we recommend for Your Electoral Grace." As it turned out, Luther's recommendation of Andrew Misenus was not taken lightly for in 1553 he became the preacher at Altenburg. Luther closes his letter noting that he does not know what is going on at Leipzig or Erfurt, and declares "Wittenberg, after all, cannot provide the entire world with pastors. It [Wittenberg] does more for a church than Rome and the Papacy now do...". - Autograph letters by Martin Luther of such important content are rare. Address panel on the verso. Lightly soiled repair to original folds and other repairs, hinged to a larger piece of paper.

The title and part-titles for the individual plays are in Greek and Latin and colophons in Latin only. Spaces with guide letters have been left for the rubricator to add manuscript decorated initials, but they have not been added, showing the book as it came from the press. Matching limp vellum (made from 2 leaves from a ca. 1560/70? Spanish legal manuscript), constructed or reconstructed ca. 1900, each volume with "Euripides" written on the spine, blue edges.

      Adams E1030; Ahmanson-Murphy 55/1 & 55/2; BMC STC Italian p. 239; ICCU, CNCE 18373; Hoffmann II, 68; Lowry, The world of Aldus Manutius, pp. 142, 145, 151, 262; Renouard, p. 43, no. 10; UCLA 69. "Exceptionally important" (Lowry) first edition, in the original Greek, of most of the surviving plays of Euripides. It contains 18 plays, fourteen printed here for the first time and four for the second (and in a much more accurate text). This first edition of nearly all his surviving plays (Electra remained unprinted until 1545) certainly assured the survival of the greater part of Greek historical drama. Only 4 of his plays had been printed previously, by J. Lascaris in Florence, 1495, also in Greek. In Thomas More's 1516 Utopia, his hero Raphael gives a collection of Greeks books to the Utopians: Plato, Aristotle, Theophrastus, Plutarch, Homer, Aristophanes, Sophocles and Euripides, all in Aldine editions (Lowry, p. 262). Aldus's first Greek types, in 1495, set the style for the future by following a sloped cursive hand rather than the rounder upright hand that dominated the incunabula period. The present book is set in the smallest and best of his Greek types, first used in his Sophocles 6 months earlier (Scholderer, Greek printing types, no. 25). It is better cut than the earlier ones and has fewer ligatures, making it clear and legible even to a modern eye. It set the style until Garamont's Grec du Roi brought extensively ligatured Greek types back into fashion for about two centuries. Aldus introduced the world's first italic type in 1501 and uses it here for the few bits of Latin text.With contemporary manuscript notes, mostly in Greek with a few in Latin, in the first half of volume 1. Bifolia 2N3.6 and 2N4.5 were interchanged by the binder, disturbing the sequence of the pages. In good condition and with large margins (leaf size 16 x 10 cm), with small and mostly marginal worm holes, affecting an occasional letter on the title-page and a few text pages, and a few leaves with minor, mostly marginal water stains. The first edition of most of Euripides's plays and a beautiful early example of Aldus's best Greek type.

        [Abbildung des Papsttums]. [Wittenberg, Hans Lufft?, 1545/69]. Folio. A large fragment of each of 7 prints in a series of 9 (I-VI & IX) plus a large fragment of each of 2 prints (V & VI) from a different edition of the same series, each fragment with a woodcut illustration from the workshop of Lucas Cranach (ca. 14.5×10.5 cm). Prints VII & VIII, lacking here, actually came from a single, double-page print with a single woodcut showing 2 illustrations. The prints are accompanied by Grisar & Heege's 1923 illustrated book devoted to the series and by a printed facsimile [Frankfurt am Main, Völker, 1886] of the only known complete copy of the edition represented by the present set of 7 leaves. Each fragment mounted in a passe-partout, the whole preserved in a modern half morocco box.

      Claus & Pegg 3505a; Grisar & Heege, Luthers Kampfbilder IV, pp. 16 ff, especially pp. 44-45, 47-48 & 143-149; not in VD16. Nine extremely rare woodblock prints with letterpress text, from Luther's famous anti-papist propaganda print series illustrated by Cranach, mercilessly satirizing and caricaturing the Roman Catholic Church in general and the Pope in particular, probably published by Hans Lufft in Wittenberg. They were originally produced at the same time as Luther's fiercely polemical treatise Wider das Papsttum zu Rom, vom Teufel gestiftet and can be thought of as its illustrations, so they have become known as the "Abbildung des Papsttums". Luther's verses, coarse to the point of obscenity, are accompanied by no less scurrilous woodcuts, with obscene, gruesome and scatological images. The print series went through several different editions using the original woodblocks from 1545 to 1618, but ignoring the latest printings dated 1609 to 1618, only 5 known copies have all 9 prints (and some of those include fragmentary prints). The present set was discovered in a Saxon binding of 1569. It includes fragments (with the woodblocks complete or nearly complete) of 7 of the 9 prints in the same edition as the Worms copy, and fragments of 2 prints probably in the same edition as the two prints of the Coburg copy. Light browning and brown stains, margins slightly wormed and a few defects to individual prints, but very well preserved for a trove of binding waste sheets. A deliberate effort seems to have been made to preserve the woodcuts and titles. Second known copy (with 7 of 9 leaves) of an early edition of an infamous Luther-Cranach print series, with 2 unrecorded leaves from another early edition.

        Sylvae nuptialis libri sex. In quibus ex dictis Moder. materia Matrimonii, Dotium, Filiationis, Adulterii, Originis, Successionis & Monitorialium plenissime discutitur.

      Lyon, Sub scuto Coloniensi (excudebant Ioannes et Franciscus Frellonii), 1545.. Oktav. Titelblatt mit Druckersignet, (34), 601, (4) S. Wunderbarer zeitgenössischer Holzdeckelband mit blindgeprägtem Schweinslederüberzug, auf drei Bünden geheftet, mit zwei (fehlenden) Schließen.. Das erste, humanistisch beeinflusste Eherechtsbuch ist das berühmte "Sylva nuptialis" von Giovannis NEVIZZANO (um 1470-1540), wenngleich dem heutigen Leser dieses Werk eher wie Lebensführungsanweisungen anmutet. Das Ehe- und Kirchenrecht war für die Kirche die Brücke zwischen Moral, Krichengebot und juristischer Normierung. Bis zum BGB war und blieb es die Domäne der Kirche sowohl der protestantischen wie der katholischen. Das Eherecht war auch eines der wichtisgten Bestandteile des Kollisionsrechts, weil die örtliche Bedingungen sich zwischen Abschluss und Ende einer Ehe sich oftmals änderten. Das Werk von de Nevizanis ist in fünf Bücher unterteilt: I: Non est nubendum II: Seni non est nubendum III: Monitoriae IV: Est nubendum V: Quomodo iudicandum

      In fine: VENEZIA, EREDI DI LUCANTONIO GIUNTA, 1545Legatura antica in piena pergamena rigida con unghie; dorso a 5 scomparti con titolo manoscritto su 2 e nervi rilevati; tagli spruzzati di rosso. Al contropiatto anteriore, ex - libris araldico moderno di CAR. GASTALDI. 238 carte numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo e impresa degli editori Giunta; alcuni errori di numerazione delle carte. Testo in volgare e in carattere corsivo, impaginato su doppia colonna. Seconda edizione "giuntina" del rifacimento del Berni, giudicata dal gamba "assai rara". Molini, in Gamba I, cita "Nonostante l'asserzione delle molte stanze aggiunte dall'Autore, altra diversità non trovasi fra questa e la precedente edizione del 1541, che quella consistente nelle prime 82 Stanze del Poema, le quali sono in questa affatto diverse, ed assai più belle delle 80 che corrispondono alle medesime nell'altra". L'Orlando Innamorato del Berni, dopo questa edizione del 1545, non venne più ristampata fino al 1725. Esemplare complessivamente in buone condizioni, in ottima legatura, qualche lieve e sporadica fioritura o ingiallimento, più marcate all'angolo superiore interno delle ultime carte; antico rinforzo all'attaccatura interna della carta 73; altrimenti fresco e genuino.

        De Radio astronomico & geometrico liber. In quo multa quae ad Geographia, opticam, Geometriam & Astronomiam utilis. 1545. Antwerp. G. Bontius [bound with] Frisius, Gemma. Arithmeticae practicae methodus facilis

      Antwerp, 1545. Sammelband of Frisius? most important works, with the first edition of the De Radio. 1540. Antwerp. G. Bontius [bound with] Apian, Peter; Frisius, Gemma. Cosmographia. 1540. Antwerp. Arnold Birkmanno. In 4to. 59 ff. + 5 ff.; 37 ff. + 1 ff.; 61 ff. + 1 ff. & volvelles in text. Old vellum, recased, blanks renewed. Light damp stain to places, some foxing spots; however generally fine copies.First edition of the first work, rare; describes Gemma?s (1508 ? 1555) improved cross-staff, thoroughly illustrated with woodcuts showing its construction and practical use. The instrument was brought in a brass example ?apparently with some modifications- by John Dee to England in 1547, Tycho Brahe in his Astronomiae Instaurata Mechanica makes mention of him having relied on it for his observations. Furthermore, it influenced navigation in the 16th century (Waters, The Art of Navigation in England in Elizabethian and early Stuart Times, pp.135). The second work is also in its first edition, "This was the most popular arithmetic of the sixteenth century, at least among those intended for the Latin schools. It combined the older science of numbers with the commercial arithmetic of the Italian writers" (Smith, Rara, 200); this first edition is rare, the 1545 edition, annotated by Jacques Peletier (1517 ? 1583) is found more frequently. The third work, Apian?s (1495 ? 1552) Cosmographia is probably amongst the most disseminated works of the 16th century, the first edition was 1524, without the commentaries and additions by Gemma. It was only in 1529 when Gemma made his contribution to this introduction to geography, cartography, surveying, navigation and mathematical instruments; it was certainly amongst the most widespread treatises of its day. It includes several notes on America, including Vespucci?s naming of America and misdating the discovery, along with notes on recent explorations. The illustration includes plentiful woodcuts in text and volvelles.Adams, G 377. Church, 78. Sabin, 1745. Alden-L. 540/2.

        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.

        Les dix premiers livres de l'Illiade d'Homere, prince des poètes : traduit en vers françois par M. Hugues Salel.

      Paris: J. Loys for V. Sertenas 1545 - Paris: J. Loys for V. Sertenas, 1545. Folio (280 x 180 mm). Eighteenth century calf binding, gilt three-line borders, spine richly gilt with seven raised bands. Title page restored: upper part (3 cm) with first line of title reinstated. Havard/Mortimer French, 293; Fairfax Murray French, 250 ("one of the handsomest books printed at Paris"); Brunet III, 290. FIRST EDITION of Salel's translation, roman type, small italic side-notes, translator's note in verse to the reader and errata on G4r, colophon on verso with Loys's large woodcut device, title woodcut of Homer as the Fountain of Poetry (143 x 100 mm.), ten woodcuts at the head of each book, the first the same size as the title cut, the remainder smaller (approx. 86 mm. square) and set within the same four-piece ornamental arabesque border, the upper border containing the French royal arms, the lower a small coat-of-arms (possibly Salel's), fine 8-line criblé initials. The Lyonese poet Hugues Salel died in 1553 before finishing his translation of the Iliad, the second in French (preceded by J. Samxon's translation, printed by Jean Petit in 1530); it was completed by Amadis Jamyn and published in its entirety in 1580. The woodcuts, which harmonize perfectly with their borders and with the open leaded roman text, are clearly influenced by Geoffrey Tory with their lack of shading and outline depiction of the figures, and may be the work of the "Maître à l'F gothique" (Brun's appellation), Mortimer's "F" artist (sometimes identified as the Lyonese printer François Fradin), whose woodcuts illustrate several of Denys Janot's imprints. "The italianate style introduced into the French book by Tory, and continued in volumes from the press of Denys Janot, reaches its height in these illustrations" (Mortimer). On the title is a beautiful cut representing Homer as the Fountain of Poetry. There are 10 other cuts in similar style, one to each book and with ornamental borders containing arms of France above and a small coat below, probably Salel's. Each of these cuts, with the accompagnying handsome initial, occupies most of an entire page. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die berühmten "Kampfbilder" Luthers, hier noch als Wandanschläge.

      [Wittenberg, H. Lufft (?), 1545].. 7 Bll. der Folge (davon 2 doppelt vorhanden). Einblattdrucke. Folio (Blattgröße unterschiedlich, s. u.). Mit jeweils 1 Holzschnitt aus der Werkstatt von Lucas Cranach. Unter Passepartouts in Halblederkassette mit Rückentitel. Folio.. Die berühmten "Kampfbilder" Luthers. Im Jahr 1545 erreichte Luthers Polemik gegen das Papsttum mit der Veröffentlichung seiner Schrift "Wider das Papsttum zu Rom, vom Teufel gestiftet" ihren Höhepunkt. Zur gleichen Zeit ließ er eine Reihe von Flugblättern drucken, die unter dem Namen "Abbildung des Papsttums" bekannt wurden. "Alles einseitig bedruckte Einblattdrucke im Folioformat, wohl bei Hans Lufft in Wittenberg hergestellt" (Claus/P.). Die scharfen, bis zur Unflätigkeit derben Verse Luthers werden von ebenso derben Holzschnitten begleitet. "Daß sie aus Cranachs Werkstatt hervorgegangen sind, bezweifelt niemand" (Grisar/H.). Die eindrucksvollen Bilder fanden weiteste Verbreitung und wurden vielfach nachgedruckt und kopiert, die von den Originalstöcken gedruckten Einblattdrucke sind jedoch von allergrößter Seltenheit. Grisar und Heege (1923) nennen 18 Exemplare, von denen nur 7 vollständig oder fast vollständig sind, Claus und Pegg (1982) kennen von keinem Blatt (einschließlich der Varianten) mehr als 5 Standorte. Die hier vorliegenden Blätter wurden in einem sächsischen Einband von 1569 entdeckt. Nach Grisar/H. umfaßt die vollständige Folge 9 Blätter, das von Claus und Pegg (1982) erwähnte Blatt "Fußtritt" ist vermutlich erst später entstanden und gehört nicht zu den "Abbildungen" (vgl. Grisar/H. 40 u. 63 ff.). Wir können hier sieben verschiedene Blätter anbieten, davon zwei sogar in zwei Exemplaren; es fehlt lediglich das Doppelblatt "Sauritt" und "Sackpfeiferesel". - 1. Monstrum Romae inventum mortu(um) in Tiberi. Anno 1496. (Blattgr. noch ca. 22:18 cm). - Claus/P. 2.3 ("Verbleib des Blattes unbekannt"). - Der große Holzschnitt (14,6:10,3 cm) zeigt den sogenannten Papstesel. Die berühmte Darstellung, die auf einem Kupferstich des Wenzel von Olmütz beruht, wurde bereits 1523 von Luther und Melanchthon in ihrer "Deutung der zwei greulichen Figuren" benutzt. Für die "Abbildungen" entstand ein neuer Holzschnitt. "Dieser neue Wittenberger Schnitt des Papstesels [...] scheint uns in seiner äusserlich bereicherten, aber etwas trocken schraffierten Form eine Arbeit des jüngeren Cranach zu sein" (Koepplin/Falk Nr. 248, vgl. auch S. 798). "Dem ganzen Ungetüm ist mehr Leben eingehaucht, wie denn auch das Eselsmaul zum Schreien geöffnet ist. Besonderes Gewicht scheint darauf gelegt zu sein, das Menschlich-weibliche in dem Ungetüm mehr und üppiger zur Geltung zu bringen" (Grisar/H.). - Kl. Wurmspur in der Darstellung u. der ersten Textzeile, typogr. Bordüre rechts angeschnitten (geringer Buchstaben- u. Bildverlust), vom deutschen Drucktext unterhalb der Darstellung nur ein Rest der ersten Zeile erhalten. - 2. Regnum Satanae et Papae. 2. Thess. 2. (18,5:20,5 cm). - Claus/P. 3.3. - Der Holzschnitt (noch ca. 11,5:12,2 cm groß), der zuerst als Titelholzschnitt der Schrift "Wider das Papsttum" Verwendung fand, zeigt den Papst als "Widerchrist" thronend im Höllenrachen. - Wurmspuren in der Darstellung u. der linken Bordüre, Holzschnitt unten angeschnitten (ca. 5-10 mm). Lateinischer Text vollständig vorhanden, der deutsche fehlt. Verso noch schwacher Abklatsch des "Papstesels" sichtbar. - 3. Hic oscula pedibus Papae figuntur. (22:18 cm). - Claus/P. 4.2. - Der Holzschnitt (14,5:10,5 cm) stellt Papst Paul III. mit einer Bannbulle dar, neben ihm zwei Kardinäle (wohl Otto Truchseß v. Waldburg u. Albrecht v. Brandenburg). Zwei Bauern strecken ihnen die Zunge und das entblößte Hinterteil tatkräftig entgegen. Luthers deutscher Text dazu lautet: "Nicht Bapst, nicht schreck uns mit deim Bann, Und sey nicht so zorniger Man:, Wir thun sonst ein Gegenwehre, Und zeigen dirs Belvedere". - Rechte Bordüre fehlt, vom deutschen Text noch der größte Teil der ersten und ein Rest der zweiten Zeile vorhanden (Wurmspuren), Holzschnitt u. lateinischer Text vollständig. - 4. Adoratur Papa deus terrenus. (Ca. 18:21 cm). - Claus/P. 5 (Variante nicht bestimmbar). - "Das vierte Bild der Reihe [...] übertrifft womöglich an grober Unflätigkeit noch das vorhergehende" (Grisar/H.). Auf dem Holzschnitt (noch ca. 135:105 mm) entleeren sich drei Landsknechte (?) in eine umgekehrte Tiara, auf dem davor abgebildeten päpstl. Wappen sind die gekreuzten Schlüssel in Dietriche umgewandelt. - Holzschnitt mit Wurmspur in der Einfassung u. unten angeschnitten (ca. 1 cm), deutscher Text fehlt. - 5. Digna merces Papae satanissimi et Cardinalium suorum. (22:18 cm). - Vgl. Claus/P. 9. - Bei Claus/P. nicht verzeichnete Variante mit abweichender Titelzeile (wie bei Grisar/H. für das Exemplar der Lutherhalle Worms beschrieben). Der Papst und drei Geistliche hängen am Galgen, ihre Seelen werden von Teufeln in die Hölle getragen (14,5:10,2 cm). - Rechte Bordüre u. lateinische Titelzeile außen angeschnitten, Wurmspur in der unteren Einfassung des Holzschnitts, vom deutschen Text noch die erste Zeile vorhanden. - 6. Dass., ebenso. (15,5:21,5 cm). - Das gleiche Blatt in derselben Variante, die Titelzeile jedoch unsauber gedruckt u. außen etwas Plattenschmutz (Probeabzug?). - Holzschnitt nur noch zu drei Vierteln vorhanden, Wurmspur in Darstellung u. Bordüre, deutscher Text fehlt ganz. - 7. Papa agit gratias caesaribus pro immensis beneficiis. (22:16 cm). - Claus/P. 8 (Variante nicht bestimmbar). - Papst Clemens IV., aus dessen Tiara das Haupt des Satans hervorschaut, ist im Begriff, König Konradin mit dem Schwert hinzurichten (14,7:10,6 cm). Die Titelzeile ist etwas unsauber gedruckt, vielleicht handelt es sich um einen Probeabzug. - Lateinischer Text mit Wurmspur (Buchstabenverlust), deutscher Text fehlt. Holzschnitt vollständig erhalten, jedoch mit Wurmspur u. Einschnitt sowie Quetschfalte in der Darstellung, Schnitt im äußeren Rand des Blattes mit Papierstreifen hinterlegt. - 8. Dass., ebenso (18:22 cm). - Das gleiche Blatt, wohl in derselben Variante, Titelzeile hier jedoch sauber gedruckt. - Kl. Wurmspur in der Darstellung, Holzschnitt unten angeschnitten (ca. 1,5 cm), deutscher Text fehlt. - 9. Ortus et origo Papae. (22:18 cm). - Claus/P. 1.2. - Die "Geburt" des Papstes (14,5:10,5 cm). "Das abscheulichste unter den Bildern [...] Links ist ein erschreckend häßliches Teufelsweib daran, den Papst und fünf Kardinäle aus dem Hintern zu gebären [...] Der übrige Teil des Holzschnittes zeigt drei Furien mit der Betreuung des Papstkinds beschäftigt" (Grisar/H.). - Eine Wurmspur unterhalb des Holzschnittes berührt die Einfassung, Darstellung sonst vollständig erhalten, vom deutschen Text noch die erste Zeile vorhanden (leicht angeschnitten). - Insgesamt leicht gebräunt u. fleckig sowie mit kl. Wurmspuren in den Rändern, für einen Einbandfund jedoch bemerkenswert gut erhalten. - Dabei: M. Luther. (Abbildung des Papsttums). Faksimile-Ausgabe. (Frankfurt, Völcker, 1886). Gr.-4to.

        Commentariorum in Apocalypsim Joannis libri XII.

      Paris 1545 bei Gulielmus Thibout für Ambroise Girault 'sub Pellicano via Jacobea' i.8o (16x10cm). Einspalt. Druck (Index: 2-spalt.) mit schönen Init., einigen a fonds cribles, dazu 20 unsign. Holzschnitte/-stiche (8,3x5,3 cm) zu den Visionen des Sehers von Patmos (auch separat in Bibelausgaben publiziert) in brillant-scharfen Abdrucken, desweiteren Titelblatt mit Verl.-Marke des von 1520 bis 1546 tätigen Buchhändlers Ambroise Girault (abgeb. bei Phil. Renouard p 112/13 Nr. 368 = Silvestre 976 Nr. 1). Einschl. Titel: (16), 247, (1 weiß) ff. Dekorativer Hbldbd des 17. Jh. mit goldgeprägtem Rtitel, Vorsätze leicht stockig, im inneren leicht unfrisch u. Spuren eines kaum sichtbaren Wasserschadens, von dem die kpl. Suite der feingliedrig-zierlichen Holzschnitte (nach Holbein bzw wie andere meinen: nach Woensam v. Worms) total unbehelligt geblieben ist. Sie ist die 'begehrte' Zierde dieses theol. 'Malerbuches des 16. Jh.'. - Vorliegender Guliel. Thibout-Druck ist eine 'edition partagee': Zwei Verleger teilten sich den Druck, was ich selbst durch Augenscheinseinnahme bekunden kann. Beim ersten Verleger handelt es sich um den von 1540-1572 tätigen Buchhändler Audoenus Parvus (= Oudin I. Petit) aus dem altbekannt. Pariser Buchhändlergeschlecht 'Via ad divum Jacobum sub signo Floris Lilii' mit seiner Verl.-Marke, wie in Philipp Renouard p290/91 Nr. 908 abgebildet u. mit dem Druck Re I 129 beschrieben (u. jetzt im 'Dürer-Haus' in Nbg). Der Text in der Banderole ('Petit a Petit') in Verbind. m. dem Monogr. ('O. P.') über dem 'Lilien-Signet' besagt, daß Oudin Petit in der 'Petit'-Buchhändl.-Tradition wenigst. die 2. Generation verkörpert. - Diese Verleger -Marke tritt nochmals beim Rupertus opus 'Victoria Verbi DEI' (ebenfalls jetzt ins Internet gestellt) auf, worauf aufmerksam gemacht wird. - Der zweite Verleg. (wie vorlieg.) ist der Buchhändler Ambroise Girault 'in via Jacobea sub Pellicano' u. alles das kommt in der Verl.-Marke zur Sprache. - Fortsetzung:.

Vors., Min. fingerfleckig, tadell. Preis in CHF: 3080. (Aldinensammlung Staatsbibliothek Berlin 559. Druckermarke auf Titel und am Schluss. Jehuda (auch: Juda) ben Isaak Abravanel, oft kurz Abravanel oder Abrabanel genannt, italienisch Leone Ebreo, (* um 1460 in Lissabon; nach 1521 in Neapel) jüdischer Philosoph, Arzt und Dichter aus Portugal. 1483 Vertreibung wegen Hochverrats aus Portugal nach Spanien. Dort Leiter der Finanzverwaltung von Königin Isabella I. Trotzdem Vertreibung 1492 nach Neapel. 1495 Vertreibung wegen antijüdischen Progromen nach Genua. Als aber 1501 auch die Republik Genua judenfeindliche Maßnahmen ergriff erneute Flucht.Rückkehr nach Neapel, Aufstieg zum Leibarzt des Vizekönigs. 1510 Vertreibung nach Venedig. Nochmalige Rückkehr nach Neapel.Abravanel gehörte zu den prominenten Vertretern des Platonismus in der Renaissance. Er verfügte über eine hervorragende humanistische Bildung und kannte sich in der christlichen ebenso wie in der jüdischen und der islamischen philosophischen Tradition aus. Sein Hauptwerk, die Dialoghi d'amore ("Dialoge über die Liebe"), knüpft an Platons Konzept des literarisch kunstvoll gestalteten philosophischen Dialogs an. Wie bei Platon und in der traditionellen belehrenden Dialogliteratur bemühen sich in den Dialoghi d'amore die Gesprächspartner gemeinsam um Erkenntnis. Abravanel wandelt jedoch das herkömmliche Konzept ab, indem er an die Stelle des üblichen Lehrer-Schüler-Verhältnisses der Dialogteilnehmer einen Gedankenaustausch und zugleich geistigen Kampf zweier ebenbürtiger Gesprächspartner setzt. Der erotische Aspekt des Verhältnisses zwischen den beiden Protagonisten, einem verliebten Mann und einer skeptischen, wissensdurstigen Frau, schafft einen lebensnahen Rahmen für die philosophische Auseinandersetzung mit der Theorie der Liebe.

Vorliegende ist ausgestatt. mit den brillanten winzig-kleinen Typen, die 200 Jahre später in d. Vatablus-Jubiläums-Bibel Paris 1729/45 (Stuttg. D 1486) "caractere nitidissimo et minimo" als der Schatz der Gelehrten hingestellt wird ("docti omnes in pretio habent"). - Diese Jubil.-Bibel ist diesseits ausführl. beschrieben u. ebenfalls bei ZVAB ins Internet gestellt. Hierauf wird Bezug genommen. Der Lobpreis auf die Vatablus-Bibel-EA von 1545 gipfelt in den Worten, die ihr den Namen gegeben haben: "Haec Bibliorum editio propterea quod excusa sit carta magnifica & quidem emendatissime, vocari solet nulli conferenda, la Nompareille" (Biblia Paris 1729, Bd I Vorw. p 6).- Die Bibel verfügt über 2 lat.

Vatablus - bereits 1547 verstorben - hat seine Autorenschaft jedoch immer in Abrede gestellt. In Wirklichkeit sind die Anmerk. auch überwiegend die der Zürcher Theologen in Verbindung mit Stephanus eigenem kritischen Apparat. Diese Bibel - von der Sorbonne abgelehnt und von der Kirche vehement verfolgt - kam auf den Index. Trotzdem wurde sie öfters im Raum der kathol. Kirche nachgedruckt und von den Theologen hochverehrt. Für Stephanus wurde es schließlich im kathol. Paris so lebensbedrohl., daß er - nach Genf - fliehen mußte u. dort 1559 verstarb. Vorlieg.

        Dialoghi di M. Sperone Speroni, Nuovamente ristampati, & con molta diligenza riveduti, & corretti. In Vinegia, [al colopho: nella case de'figliuoli di Aldo], 1550. Unito a: Regole Grammaticali della volgar Lingua, di Messer Francesco Fortunio, nuovamente reviste, et con somma diligentia corrette. In Vinegia, nella Case de'Figliuoli di Aldo, 1545.

      SPERONI: In 8, [mm. 147 x 100], cc. 144. In mezza pelle verde con autore e titolo in oro entro tassello rosso al dorso, decorato da filetti di motivi fitomorfi. Errori di numerazione ai quinterni F-G numerati 49-63 (anzichè 41-55),con la carta G8 numerata giustamente 56 e alla c. 97. Sottolineature e richiami ai margini. Marca tipografica con ancora e delfino e la scritta Aldi Filii entro cornice figurata costituita da due cornucopie alla base che sorreggono un globo sul quale due puttini alati reggono un animale caudato ed alato, le cui teste si intrecciano formando un mascherone che sostiene l'ancora. Ripetuta in fine. FORTUNIO: cc. (4) ? 41 (i.e. 47). Privo dell'ultima carta bianca. Marca tipografica con l'ancora fra le lettere AL DUS. Sperone Speroni nacque a Padova nel 1588 e appena terminati gli studi venne incaricato dell'insegnamento di logica a Padova (1520) che lasciò solo dopo appena tre anni pochi anni per tornare a studiare filosofia a Bologna con il Pomponazzi e quindi ritornare a Padova dove per altri tre anni dal 1525 al 1528 insegnò filosofia. Divenuto principe dell'Accademia degli Infiammati nel 1542, impose il solo uso del volgare. In quello stesso anno videro la luce i Dialoghi, per cura dlel'amico Daniele Barbaro senza che lo Speroni lo sapesse, che li dedica a Ferdinando Sanseverino, Principe di Salerno. Si tratta del Dialogo d'Amore, della dignità delle donne, del tempo del partorire delle donne, Della cura famigliare, Della usura, Della discordia (in cui gli interlocutori sono la Discordia, Giove e Mercurio), Delle lingue (in cui torna sull'uso del volgare), Della retorica, Delle laudi del Cathaio (che si svolge nella villa di Pia degli Obici), Panico et Bichi. L'opera ebbe numerose ristampe. Fu amico del Tasso di cui rivide la Gerusalemmme liberata e di Annibal Caro che conobbe a Roma. Nel 1578 pubblicò un'Apologia dei Dialoghi. Morì a Padova nel 1588. Giovanni Francesco Fortunio, autore della seconda opera, nacque Pordenone (o a Zara in Istria) fra il 1460 ed il 1470: quello che è certo è che la sua cultura si deve all'area dell'entroterra veneto più vicina all'area dalmata. Assai scarse sono le notizie sulla sua vita, fu amico e allievo di Marco Antonio Sabellico che così lo indica nelle sue lettere e fu giurista, come egli stesso scrive nel proemio dell'opera scrivendo: ?Soleva io nella mia verde etade, sincerissimi lettori miei, quando d'otioso tempo dall'esercitio mio delle civili leggi mi veniva concesso, tanto nella lettura delle volgari cose di Dante, del Petrarca et del Boccaccio dilettevolmente ispendere?; fu giudice a Trieste nel 1497 e qui dopo altri incarichi quindi prese la cittadinanza. Dopo altri incarichi nella città, durante la guerra di Massimiliano d'Asburgo contro Venezia, dovette allontanarsi come conferma la moglie in un documento, mentre viene nomino nel 1516 luogotenente della città di Ancona. Nello stesso anno esce la prima edizione delle sue Regole grammaticali, in soli due libri, uno dedicato alla morfologia e l'altro all'ortografia anziché nei cinque previsti nel proemio. Morì pochi mesi dopo.

An important sammelband, from the library of Leonhart Fuchs (1501-66), the great botanist and physician, whose De Historia Stirpium Commentarii insignes (Basel: 1542) is the most celebrated and beautiful of all herbals. Fuchs has written his ownership inscription on the front paste-down endpaper and has provided a number of annotations and underlinings in three of the works (see below for more details) in his microscopic (but quite legible) hand, using his characteristic orange-brown ink. Fuchs studied under the humanist Johann Reuchlin at Ingolstadt where he became influenced by the writings of Martin Luther. In 1524, he took his medical degree from that university, practiced medicine at Munich, taught at Ingolstadt, and became court physician to Georg von Brandenburg, Margrave of Ansbach. In 1535 Fuchs became professor of medicine at the University of Tübingen where he remained for the rest of his life, establishing an herbal garden and writing many important medical, pharmaceutical, and botanical works. While Fuchs assembled a large library, books from his collection rarely appear on the market. I. The De Natura Hominis is very influential in the history of western medical thought as it is the first statement of the theory that man is composed of four humors -- blood, yellow bile, black bile, and phlegm -- and that these components are mutually interdependent. If they are in equilibrium, man is healthy; if one predominates over the others, they may be the cause of disease. This is the first Greek/Latin edition, edited by Blaise Hollier (active 1552-ca. 1564), who edited a number of classical medical texts for publication. In this work, Fuchs has underlined five lines on leaf 75r. II. Second edition (1st ed.: 1538) of this dictionary of the medical properties of foodstuff. Simeo Sethus was a Byzantine physician who flourished 1071-80. He discusses numerous Eastern drugs and spices. Liquids and solid foods are listed alphabetically under their Greek names. This was translated by Giglio Gregorio Giraldi (1479-1552), the Italian scholar and poet and corrected by Domenico Montessoro. III. First edition to be edited by Conrad Gesner. "Cassius Iatrosophista (2nd or 3rd cent. A.D.), a Greek physician, wrote a book on medical questions and a commentary on Aristotle's medical works. Gessner edited and translated the Quaestiones, and published the Greek and Latin text in this volume, to which he added Anton Schneeberger's work on remedies against the plague... "Schneeberger (1531-1580), a student and friend of Gessner, was born in Zurich, began to study medicine in Basel and continued his studies in Krakow, where he later became a well-known physician."-Wellisch A54. In this work, Fuchs has furnished annotations on four pages of the first part and underlinings on five leaves of the second part. IV. First edition. The first part of this work contains two dialogues between the author Valdagni, a physician in Brescia, Giovanni Battista Bagolino (d. 1552), and Giovanni Battista da Monte (1498-1551), on the mixing of elements through condensation and rarefaction. These dialogues are mostly related to making pharmaceutical preparations and there are frequent references to Aristotle, Avicenna, and Galen. Monte, professor of medicine at Padua, is most famous for having restored after many centuries the teaching of clinical medicine at the bedside of the patient. The second part -- pages 97-173 -- contains the Latin translation of Proclus' Elements of Physics, a Neoplatonic introduction to the theory of motion, closely based on Aristotle's treatment of motion in the Physics. It is this work which clearly interested Fuchs the most: here we find numerous annotations (sometimes as many as ten a page) and underlinings on approximately 22 pages. The first volume has some inoffensive worming touching the text, extending (and diminishing) to the first five leaves of the second work. Otherwise in fine and fresh condition. Preserved in a morocco box. ❧ Durling 2413, 4211, 880 (NLM copy lacking second part), & 4464. .

Folio (lower corner of leaf D5 torn away but rejoined at an early date, final few leaves with minor marginal worming). [Frankfurt: C. Jacob, 1545]. One of the finest sammelbands I have encountered; an early collector -- it would be wonderful to know who he was -- has assembled here six related works on astronomy, horology, scientific instruments, and astrology, all richly illustrated. They reflect the state of scientific knowledge in the period just as the revolutionary ideas of Copernicus were being disseminated. I. First edition of a rare and noteworthy book; it is one of the very first books to comment favorably on the new discoveries of Copernicus. Professor of mathematics at the newly founded University of Nuremberg, Schöner (1477-1547), was one of the greatest geographers and mathematicians of the first half of the 16th century. It was Schöner who had urged Copernicus to publish his milestone De Revolutionibus (1543). "Schöner in 1545 printed another work of his own of considerable length, namely, three books on the judgments of nativities, with another preface by Melanchthon. Schöner had been one of those who encouraged Copernicus to published his magnum opus. Now in the present work, although preferring the method of Ptolemy in astrological judgments to those of subsequent astrologers, Schöner maintained that the Copernican system was not unfavorable to astrology."-Thorndike, V, p. 367. A rebound copy of just this work sold for 54,000 dollars in the Streeter sale in 2007. II. First editions of these two important texts: Apianus' treatise describing an instrument designed to explain the primum mobilis of the universe and the Islah of Jabir ibn Aflah in which he provides a commentary of Ptolemy's Almagest. His commentary is important in the introduction of spherical trigonometry in the West. Apianus' text, which occupies the first 80 pages, describes an instrument for explaining the primum mobile of the universe; it is his most important scientific work, containing tables "where he calculates sines for every minute, with the radius divided decimally. These are the first such tables ever printed."-D.S.B., I, p. 179-(citing the title of the second edition of this work but giving the correct date). The remaining portion (pp. 146) of this book contains the first printing of Gerard of Cremona's translation into Latin of Jabir ibn Aflah's Islah. This is a revision and commentary of Ptolemy's Almagest, composed in Seville in the first half of the 12th century. "Jabir describes the principal differences between the Islah and the Almagest in the prologue: Menelaus' theorem is everywhere replaced by theorems on right spherical triangles, so that a proportion of four quantities is substituted for one of six; further, Jabir does not present his theorems in the form of numerical examples, as Ptolemy did... "Jabir criticized Ptolemy...on a number of astronomical matters. Ptolemy's 'errors' are listed in the prologue of the Islah. The most substantial, and most famous, deviation from the Almagest concerns Venus and Mercury. Ptolemy placed them beneath the sun, claiming that they were never actually on the line joining the eye of the observer and the sun. Jabir contradicted this justification, putting Venus and Mercury above the sun. The Islah is the work of a theorist. The demonstrations are free of all numbers and there are no tables. Jabir does, however, describe a torquetum-like instrument, which he says replaces all the instruments of the Almagest... "Jabir was better known in the West through Gerard of Cremona's translation. His name was used as that of an authority who criticized Ptolemy. But more serious was his influence on Western trigonometry...His most important influence was upon Regiomontanus' De triangulis, written in the early 1460's and printed in 1533, which systematized trigonometry for the Latin West."-D.S.B., VII, p. 38. III. First edition, printed at the author's private press. The book describes and illustrates Apian's "horoscopion," an instrument in the form of a quadrant for telling the time by day and night and for measuring heights, depths, and distances. Dodgson ascribes some of the fine woodcuts to Hans Brosamer and Michael Ostendorfer. "According to Van Ortroy, the first two parts translated appeared as the Instrument Buch, and the third part is derived from the Quadrans astronomica, 1532."-Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing, 811. IV. First edition of this important work on early mathematical and astronomical instruments, interesting for the descriptions of a number of newly invented quadrants designed individually to measure both time and distances. "This is a profusely illustrated work on the use of over forty different mathematical instruments (mainly sighting devices such as the quadrant and Jacob's staff). Written in German it is one of the earliest technical books to use a language other than Latin."-Tomash A83. This copy, like many other examples, does not have the nine supplementary plates (see Van Ortroy's comments regarding their rarity). There are two issues of the title-page: one, like ours, is printed in red and black. The other issue, presumably later, is printed entirely in black. V. First edition in German (1st ed.: Horologiographia, 1533). This uncommon book is the first to deal exclusively with sun dials and the first really comprehensive work on the subject. The very numerous woodcuts depict many kinds of sun dials and other astronomical instruments. VI. First edition of this very rare and handsome astronomical/astrological text. According to Zinner 1869, this book was printed from a very old manuscript which Hans Orth von Bacharach supplied. Orth was not the author but, on the contrary, the writings gathered here appeared in German manuscripts of the 15th century. Zinner cites an edition of 1502 (no. 803) but, without examining a copy, we cannot be sure if it has the same text. There were later editions -- 1551, 1571, 1578, and 1583 -- but it seems that these all have varying texts and are quite dissimilar from our edition. This is a fine and remarkable collection of important German scientific texts. ❧ I. Zinner 1884. II.

Title within ornate woodcut border. Text in two columns. 38 numbered leaves. Small folio (first eight & final three leaves quite defective with loss of text, some waterstaining). Logroño: Miguel de Eguia, 1529. An important and most attractive Spanish sammelband, obviously assembled by an Iberian bibliophile in the 18th century of three notable and early Spanish books. I. First edition of a groundbreaking work and of very great rarity. This is the first practical treatise of navigation ever published and the first to provide reliable instruction on the navigation of American waters. The information in the Arte del Navegar was based on the first-hand accounts of pilots using the Indies trade route and was thus the most up-to-date and accurate available. The standard text on the subject of the 16th century, it was widely influential, having been translated into French (15 editions), Dutch (five editions), English (two editions), Italian (three editions), and German. Medina discusses the use of a navigator's basic instruments, notably the mariner's astrolabe, the compass, and the cross-staff. It also explains the use of maps and the measurement of the altitude of the sun and the North Star, for the purpose of determining latitude. Medina emphasized the importance of navigation in extending the Spanish dominion. We know that Arte de Navegar was taken by the Dutch explorer William Barents on his last arctic voyage and that it was one of the three navigational books used by Drake. Frobisher and Champlain also carefully studied the book. Not only is this book important in navigation and cartography, but it is also a significant Americanum. Medina (1493-1567), a cleric, probably graduated from the University of Seville. He was very much a product of Seville, the center of the Spanish ocean-going commerce and the starting point for ships headed to the New World. He served as librarian to the Duke of Medina-Sidonia and taught mathematics. Asked to prepare charts and other navigational tools, he was appointed "cosmografo de honor" by the King in 1549. His knowledge of the New World was first-hand as he had travelled with Cortés. Medina also held the position of debriefing the returning crews from their voyages. In addition to charts and sailing directions, Medina made astrolabes, quadrants, mariner's compasses, forestaffs, and other navigational instruments. "Medina's Arte de navegar is a basic source book not only for the study of navigation but also for the history of cartography. Apart from this it is one of the most beautiful books to be printed in sixteenth century Spain. The map of the New World is famous, and is said to have been used by Cortès...In point of fact, although the Spaniards made extensive voyages, maps printed in Spain during the sixteenth century are very rare...The first edition is very rare. When complete, and in good condition, it commands one of the highest prices for works on navigation."-Borba de Moraes, II, pp. 47-48. This book contains several important maps. On leaf d6r is the map -- entitled "Nuevo Mundo" -- of the Atlantic Ocean, which depicts the countries bordering the ocean, showing the East Coast of the United States including Florida along with Central America, Cuba, "Espanola," the Amazon, Peru, Brazil, and Africa. This is one of the first maps printed in Spain and is in its first state, as a single block with sixteen radiating rhumb lines. "The map depicts the trade routes to and from Spain and her possessions by the use of ships heading south-westerly on the outward bound journey and returning via the Gulf Stream to the north-east. The Papal demarcation line dividing the Americas between Portugal (the land to its east) and Spain (to its west) runs vividly though the map, illustrating for the first time the future influence that the former was to have over the country we know of as Brazil. Central America and particularly the Isthmus of Panama are shown remarkably accurately, and the Yucatan is shown correctly as a peninsula...The eastern seaboard is beginning to show some features but they are not easily distinguished. A clearly identifiable Gulf of St. Lawrence begins to take shape following the voyages of Jacques Cartier."-Philip D. Burden, Mapping of North America, 14. This is the first appearance of the Papal demarcation line, created in 1494 with the Treaty of Tordesillas. On d1r is another "small round world map encircled by eight cherubic windheads. Europe, Asia, and Africa are marked and part of America is shown in simplified form."-Shirley, Mapping of the World, p. 84. This copy also contains two diagrams in brown ink made by an 18th-century scholar. One, a folding diagram showing the 32 directions of the compass, is tipped-in between d3 and d4. The other is on c8v. This is an extremely rare book on the market and is lacking in many important collections devoted to Americana. We know of only one copy to appear at auction in the last forty years: sold at Sotheby's London on 22 July 1989, it entered the collection of Dr. Richard Green. It was sold again at the auction of his books at Christie's New York on 17 June 2008, lot 248, and made, with premium, $578,500. It was a rather nasty copy with a number of condition problems (my note in the Christie's catalogue made while viewing the Green sale simply says "No."). Our copy is greatly superior. It is interesting to note that neither Boies Penrose nor Frank S. Streeter owned copies (Frank would have certainly bought a copy had he had found a copy for sale from the trade). The only other copy to appear at auction in the last half century was that sold Sotheby's London, 7 November 1961. The final leaf -- the colophon -- has a small tear in the inner margin, touching the ruled border, the decorated frame surrounding the text, and one letter. Otherwise, this is a fine and fresh copy. II. First edition in Spanish. "El Xenophon de Gracián disfrute de merecida fama, y es, con el Herodoto del P. Pou, lo mejor que en punto a traducciones de prosistas griegos posee nuestra lengua. Su estilo es claro, sencillo, puro y extento de toda afectación."-Menéndez Pelayo, cited by Palau 376,843. Ownership inscription of Leondro Maldonado, dated 14 June 1643, on title. III.

Published by Mantle Macmillan in association with Goldsboro Books. ****** "Summer, 1545. England is at war. Henry VIII's invasion of France has gone badly wrong, and a massive French fleet is preparing to sail across the Channel. As the English fleet gathers at Portsmouth, the country raises the largest militia army it has ever seen. The King has debased the currency to pay for the war, and England is in the grip of soaring inflation and economic crisis. Meanwhile Matthew Shardlake is given an intriguing legal case by an old servant of Queen Catherine Parr. Asked to investigate claims of Àmonstrous wrongsÀ committed against a young ward of the court, which have already involved one mysterious death, Shardlake and his assistant Barak journey to Portsmouth. Once arrived, Shardlake and Barak find themselves in a city preparing to become a war zone; and Shardlake takes the opportunity to also investigate the mysterious past of Ellen Fettipace, a young woman incarcerated in the Bedlam. The emerging mysteries around the young ward, and the events that destroyed EllenÀs family nineteen years before, involve Shardlake in reunions both with an old friend and an old enemy close to the throne. Events will converge on board one of the KingÀs great warships, primed for battle in Portsmouth harbour "

        Canones, et Decreta Sacrosancti Oecumenici, et Generalis Concilii Tridentini sub Paulo III, Iulio III, Pio IIII, Pontificibus Max

      Rome: Aldus. 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).
