        Rime diverse di molti eccellentiss. auttori nuovamente raccolte. Libro primo. (SEGUE): Rime di diversi nobili huomini et eccellenti poeti nella lingua thoscana. Libro secondo

      Appresso Gabriel Giolito Di Ferrari, 1545. In 16, cm 10 x 16, pp. 370 (pp. 211 - 214 e 361 - 370 mancanti per censura sostituite da altrettante carte bianche) + (30, ultime 4 bianche); cc. (3) + 184 + (13). Insegna giolitina all'ultima carta bianca. Mezza pelle ottocentesca. Edizione originale  dei primi due libri di questa fondamentale raccolta antologica, considerato il primo esempio di collana editoriale nella storia del libro italiano e tra i vettori principali per la diffusione del petrarchismo in Europa. Le pagine mancanti corrispondono agli 11 componimenti di Pietro L'Aretino, censurati in epoca successiva e di conseguenza cassati da molti esemplari. La raccolta venne curata Lodovico Domenichi e Anton Francesco Doni. Il successo fece si che altri stampatori seguitassero i libri 3 e 4 i quali in fine saranno inseriti nella numerazione dallo stesso Giolito, impossibilitato a opporsi. Interessante la presenza di componimenti di letterate come Vittoria Colonna e Veronica Gambara. King, Rabjl, Teaching other voices: women..., p. 86 (per la presenza di letterate donne); Romei, Appunti sulla tradizione delle Rime di Aretino: le antologie a stampa (In: Dentro il cinquecento), p. 108.

OUVRAGE DE GRANDE RARETE. - Benoît XVI RAPPELLE SON IMPORTANCE EN 2009 : BENOÎT XVI, AUDIENCE GÉNÉRALE, Rupert de Deutz Chers frères et sœurs, Nous faisons aujourd'hui la connaissance d'un autre moine bénédictin du XIIe siècle. Son nom est Rupert de Deutz, une ville près de Cologne, siège d'un célèbre monastère. Rupert lui-même parle de sa propre vie dans l'une de ses œuvres les plus importantes, intitulée La gloire et l'honneur du Fils de l'homme, qui est un commentaire partiel de l'Evangile de Matthieu. Encore enfant, il fut accueilli comme « oblat » dans le monastère bénédictin de Saint-Laurent à Liège, selon l'usage de l'époque de confier l'un des enfants à l'éducation des moines, entendant en faire don à Dieu. Rupert aima toujours la vie monastique. Il apprit rapidement la langue latine pour étudier la Bible et pour jouir des célébrations liturgiques. Il se distingua par sa droiture morale très intègre et par son profond attachement au Siège de Saint-Pierre. Son époque fut marquée par des oppositions entre la papauté et l'empire, à cause de ce qu'on appelle la « lutte des investitures », avec laquelle — comme je l'ai mentionné dans d'autres catéchèses — la papauté voulait empêcher que la nomination des évêques et l'exercice de leur juridiction ne dépende des autorités civiles, qui étaient guidées la plupart du temps par des motivations politiques et économiques, certainement pas pastorales. L'évêque de Liège, Othbert, résistait aux directives du Pape et envoya en exil Bérenger, abbé du monastère de Saint-Laurent, précisément à cause de sa fidélité au Pape. Dans ce monastère vivait Rupert, qui n'hésita pas à suivre l'abbé en exil; il ne revint à Liège et n'accepta de devenir prêtre que quand l'évêque Othbert rentra en communion avec le Pape. Jusqu'à ce moment, en effet, il avait évité de recevoir l'ordination d'un évêque en désaccord avec le Pape. Rupert nous enseigne que lorsque naissent des controverses dans l'Eglise, la référence au ministère pétrinien garantit la fidélité à la saine doctrine et donne la sérénité et la liberté intérieure. Après la dispute avec Othbert, il dut encore abandonner son monastère à deux reprises. En 1116, ses adversaires voulurent même lui intenter un procès. Bien qu'ayant été lavé de toutes les accusations, Rupert préféra se rendre pendant une certaine période à Siegburg, mais les polémiques n'ayant pas encore cessé lorsqu'il revint au monastère de Liège, il décida de s'établir définitivement en Allemagne. Nommé abbé de Deutz en 1120, il y resta jusqu'en 1129, année de sa mort. Il ne s'en éloigna que pour un pèlerinage à Rome, en 1124. Ecrivain fécond, Rupert a laissé de très nombreuses œuvres, aujourd'hui encore d'un grand intérêt, également parce qu'il fut actif dans plusieurs importantes discussions théologiques de l'époque. Par exemple, il intervint avec détermination dans la controverse eucharistique qui, en 1077, avait conduit à la condamnation de Bérenger de Tours. Celui-ci avait donné une interprétation réductrice de la présence du Christ dans le Sacrement de l'Eucharistie, la définissant seulement symbolique. Mots clés : [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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. Ce livre est par ailleurs l'un des chefs d'œuvre de la typographie espagnole 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.

        Commentariorum in Euangelistam Joannem heptas prima/ Commentariorum in Euangelistam Joannem heptas Teritia

      Basileae, 1545 and 1547. Large Quarto. Two volumes in one. Craig S. Farmer notes that his work in biblical interpretation used exegetical and research skills that set the standard for German biblical scholarship for the next two centuries. see his The Gospel of John in the Sixteenth Century Exegesis of Wolfgang Musculus (Oxford University Press, 1997). While most scholarship has focused on the early work of Luther and his associates on Romans and Galatians, it is this exposition on the Gospel of John (as well as his citing of the Church Fathers) that shows the power of biblical scholarship in the second generation of the Reformation. Beginning at the Wedding Feast of Cana and proceeding to the case of the woman at the well (John 4) Musculus shows a level of exegetical skill that is similar to Calvin's though they take different approaches as in the case of the woman at the well. While also a great preacher like Rhegius, his rigorous scholarship advances the exegetical approach that distinguishes the next several centuries of Lutheran scholarship. OCLC locates copies at the British Library, the National Library of Scotland, and libraries in Switzerland and Germany. There are no reported copies in North America. 1st issue of the first book, 2nd issue of the second book, single column. [24], 448, [4]pp. [1]pp. errata and [3] blank pages. Volume two: with a divisional title page, dated 1547, 473[1], [4], [1]pp. colophon. Bound in full blind stamp decorated pigskin, raised bands, title in brown ink on spine.

        Chrysostomi Archiepiscopi Constantinopolitani in omnes D. Pauli epistolas commentarij, quotquot apud Graecos extant, Latinitate donati, à multis mendis purgati, et recens in tre tomos divisi: quorum unicuique accessit index rerum omnium insignium locupletissimus, ut nihil sit quod in eo desiderari possis.

      1545. Parisiis, Sub signo hominis silvestris, via ad diuum Iacobum, 1545. In 12esimo, 1 c. b., front (tre cuori ornati e in nero su carta bianca), al verso una nota al lettore (Typographus Candido Lectori S. D.), pp. (14) (di Index Verborum Et Sententiarum insignium iuxtà..), 444, tre piccoli capolettera (avviso al lettore, Index e inizio di testo), lingua latina, alcune postille. Legatura originale in p. pergamena semimolle con tit. ms. al dorso. Si tratta del primo volume (su tre) del commento alle lettere di Paolo. Giovanni Crisostomo o Giovanni d'Antiochia (Antiochia, 345 - 347 circa - Cumana Pontica, Cappadocia, 407), Padre della Chiesa, è il più celebre degli oratori sacri. É stato il secondo patriarca di Costantinopoli, commemorato come santo dalla chiesa cattolica e dalla chiesa ortodossa, venerato dalla chiesa copta, e uno dei trentatré dottori della Chiesa. La sua eloquenza e la sua fama di oratore furono all'origine dell'' epiteto "Crisostomo" ("bocca d'oro" in greco antico). La sua personalità è soprattutto quella di un moralista, desideroso di riformare la vita cristiana, pur mantenendosi, culturalmente, nell'ambito dell'ellenismo. Il suo zelo e il suo rigore gli arrecarono anche forti opposizioni,. Subì un esilio e durante un trasferimento morì. Scrisse anche delle omelie antigiudaiche, utilizzate nei secoli come pretesto per le discriminazioni e le persecuzioni contro gli ebrei. Questo volume è il commento alle lettere di Paolo ai Romani: occorre riscoprire, sull'esempio dei Padri, le omelie incentrate sulla santità, e questa su San Paolo è una vetta tra le omelie di San Giovanni Crisostomo, sempre attuale e di aiuto per gli omileti. Nello stesso anno, sotto la stessa insegna, esce anche "Diui Ioannis Chrysostomi Episcopi Constantinopolitani in Sanctum Iesu Christi Euangelium secundum Matthaeum commentarij luculentissimi, omnibus Verbi Diuini studiosis necessarij: opus perfectum" (Parisijs, Sub signo hominis siluestris, via ad Diuum Iacobum [Regnault Chaudière], 1545). Dei numerosi scritti meritano di essere ricordati in particolare i tre libri "Contro gli avversari della vita monastica"; i sei del dialogo "Sul sacerdozio"; varie opere ascetiche (sulla verginità, contro coloro che tengono vergini coabitatrici, ecc.); i commenti agli Atti degli Apostoli; i discorsi esegetici (sulle epistole di S. Paolo, sui Salmi, ecc.) in cui segue il metodo della scuola antiochena; morali (contro i teatri e i giochi del circo); "Sui misteri" (per le grandi solennità); apologetici (quelli appuinto contro gli Ebrei, contro gli anomei, ecc.). Rara edizione (seppur non la prima) che non troviamo censita in iccu. Una antica nota manoscritta sotto le indicazioni tipografiche al frontespizio. Usuali segni del tempo alla pergamena (con una piccola mancanza della legatura all'angolo superiore del piatto anteriore) e ai fogli (con sporadiche imperfezioni), peraltro esemplare nell'insieme marginoso e fresco, con un interno in buono stato di conservazione.

      Frankfurt: Cyriacus Jacob zum Bart, 1545. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (290 x 188 mm). 172 (of 173) numbered leaves, with final blank but lacking blank leaf a6 after preliminaries. Signatures: a6 [-a6], A-Ee6. Gothic type, 4 woodcut illustrations on title and 214 woodcut illustrations in text. Rebound to style in early 20th century full calf over wooden boards, spine with 4 raised bands, boards ruled in blind, two brass catches and clasps, red-coloured edges, spine sun-faded, little scratching to boards. Very little browning, very minor spotting and finger-soiling to text, tears in few pages repaired with Japan paper in blank lower margin, first 6 leaves repaired and reinforced at gutter, small repaired hole in title-page not affecting text or image. Provenance: Dr. Kurt Lindner, Bamberg (small stamp "Bibliotheca Tiliana" to title verso and leaf E5v and bookplate to front pastedown); Sigrid Gutekunst (bookplate to front pastedown). A very good copy with ample margins, printed on strong paper. ----Benzing, Ryff 178; Nissen ZBI 55; VD 16 A 1336; Graesse I, 56; Rottinger, Frankfurter Buchholzschn. 120. - THE RARE FIRST GERMAN EDITION OF THIS VERY POPULAR WORK OF ALBERTUS MAGNUS, edited by Walther Hermann Ryff, on zoology. The Thierbuch is one of the earliest illustrated purely zoological work and contains sections on quadrupeds, birds, snakes, and insects. The woodcuts are derived from various sources, including Lonitzer and Egenolf publications. The text is a translation of De animalibus, books 22-26. An important part of the work (chapter 23) deals with the falconry and is, apart from its ornithological section, not original, but a collection of predominantly 12th-century hunting treatises with a strong veterinary medicinal focus. (Linder, Anfänge der dt. Jagdliteratur, p.47). The first German translations of these parts were done in the 15th century by Werner Ernesti and Heinrich Münsinger. Ryff did not know these two translations present in manuscript only. The woodcuts of the master "IK" are mainly from the book of Michael Herr's Gründtlicher underricht ... aller vierfüssigen thier. The unsigned animal drawings of this print are skilful, of large style, and with the animals in almost lifelike representation. As in other medieval and early Renaissance zoological works, demons and hybrid species had considerable relevance. "Albertus also believed in hybrids of man and various animals, for example the Donkey-man (Onocentaurus), and the Goat-man (Cirinus and Pilosus) ... It is a telling detail that on the title-page of the 1545 edition two hybrids appear next to the 'kings' of the animals (the eagle and the lion): the basiliks and a kind of Sea-wolf ... Interestingly, early modern zoology did not abandon the thoughts of the Medieval thinkers, but came into being a hype in the interest in monsters: the science of teratology developed and extensive treatises on monsters by, e.g. Paré, Aldrovandi or Liceti, were composed." (K. Enekel, in: Zoology in Early Modern Culture, Brill, 2014, p.112-14). Very Good.

        La Morte di Adone

      1545. Acquaforte, 1545-1547 circa. Da un soggetto di Luca Penni. Il mito di Adone, nei suoi diversi episodi, è molto caro all'iconografia rinascimentale, ed è ben rappresentato sia nella pittura che nell'arte incisoria. L'episodio finale del mito, con la morte del giovane, era affrescato, tra le altre scene, nella Galleria di Francesco I a Fontainebleau. Invenzione di Rosso Fiorentino, fu tradotta su rame da Antonio Fantuzzi, intorno al 1542-1543. Leon Davent incide due episodi del mito: Adone caccia il cinghiale calidonio, di formato ovale, e datato 1547, e La Morte di Adone. Lo stile delle due incisioni è molto simile, elemento che lascia presuppore che l'autore dei due soggetti sia il medesimo. Per la scena di caccia, l'attribuzione non è univoca, e sono stati avanzati i nomi del Primaticcio e/o di Luca Penni (c'è anche l'ipotesi più articolata per cui Davent avrebbe inciso da un disegno di Luca Penni a sua volta derivato dal Primaticcio). Anche per la morte di Adone, dunque, possiamo ipotizzare che l'invenzione del soggetto sia del Primaticcio, senza poter appurare, non essendosi conservato il modello, se Davent abbia inciso direttamente da un suo disegno preparatorio o attraverso la mediazione di Luca Penni. La scena, molto popolata, mostra in primo piano Adone, privo di vita, il cui corpo è sorretto dai suoi compagni dai volti affranti, mentre sulla sinistra si nota Venere in tutta la sua disperazione. Dietro di lei, si scorgono altre figure con le braccia aperte in segno di dolore. A destra, sullo sfondo, alcuni cacciatori uccidono il cinghiale calidonio. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, irregolarmente rifilata ai margini, con parziale perdita dell'inciso nel margine inferiore, non risulta leggibile il monogramma LD posto sotto la punta della lancia poggiata a terra, sulla sinistra, alcuni restauri perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Rarissima. Etching, 1545-1547 circa, after a subject by Luca Penni. The plate shows the death of Adonis: the dead body of the young man is supported by his companions while Venus expresses her despair on the left; in the background, on the right, hunters killing the boar. Leon Davent engraved two episodes of the Adonis myth: Adonis hunting the Calydonian boar, oval plate, dated 1547, and The death of Adonis. The style of the two engravings is very similar, this suggest that the inventor of the two subjects is the same. The hunting scene is attribued to Primaticcio or Luca Penni (there is also the more complex hypothesis that Davent engraved a drawing by Luca Penni in turn copied from Primaticcio). Therefore, we can assume that also The death of Adonis was an invention by Primaticcio, but we cannot prove if Davent engraved directly on his drawing or on a copy created by Luca Penni A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, irregularely trimmed insede the paltemark, a repaired paper fold in the middle center, some experte rapairs, generally in good condition.

He is best known for his book of woodcut maps titled Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae (Travel book through Holy Scripture) first published in 1581.Bünting was born in Hannover, Germany, in 1545. He studied theology at the University of Wittenberg graduating in 1569 and became a Protestant pastor in Lemgo. He was dismissed in 1575 and moved to Gronau an der Leine. In 1591 he was appointed superintendent in Goslar. When a dispute arose over his teachings in 1600 he was dismissed and retired from the ministry. He spent the rest of his life as a private citizen in Hannover.His book of woodcut maps, Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae, first published in Magdeburg in 1581, was a very popular book in its day. It was reprinted and translated several times. The book provided the most complete summary of biblical geography available and described the Holy Land by following the travels of various notable people from the Old and New Testaments. In addition to conventional maps, the book also contained three figurative maps; the world depicted using a cloverleaf design thought to possibly represent the Trinity with Jerusalem in the center, Europe in the form of a crowned and robed woman, and Asia as the winged horse Pegasus."

Printed in italis, except for the title. Some historiated and ornamental woodcut initials) (Condition: Vellum age-tanned and slightly soiled. 2 tiny holes in both boards, because of the 2 ties which have disappeared) (Note: In the preface of this book the learned anonymous translator explains his readers that it was his aim to collect for those who are not able to read Greek (qui graeca non legerant) in one volume (in unum eundemque codicem ac seorsum ab reliquis) five speeches, translated into Latin, of Demosthenes and Aeschines, because those speeches, full of mutual accusations and attacks, belonged together (inter se sint connexae (...) ut una ab altera divelli non possit). They shared the same actors and the same subject matter, and showed to the consent of all, the power of speech, and the art of oratory in her perfection (tota ars dicendi & vis orandi). Demosthenes and Aeschines were at daggers drawn, and therefore the collections begins with the 'Contra Timarchum oratio', because this speech was the beginning of their enmity (quod inde Demosthenis & Aeschinis inimicitiae exordium habuerint). In this preface he severely criticizes the clumsy Latin translation of Leonardus Aretinus (Leonardo Aretino, known to us also as Leonardo Bruni, ca. 1370-1444). He calls his translations 'mendosae' and unreliable. The anonymous translator not only translated speeches of Demosthenes and Aeschines, he added also relevant material from other sources, such as Libanius, Philostratus, and Apollonius, which he now translates into Latin for the first time (adiunctis tam Libanii quam aliorum argumentis ad eas ipsas orationes). (Interpres lectori S.P.D., leaf 2/3) Translated are beside Aeschines' 'Contra Timarchum Oratio', the 'Oratio de ementita legatione' of Demosthenes and Aeschines, now commonly known as 'De falsa legatione', and the 'Oratio contra Ctesiphontem de Corona', and the 'Oratio de Corona pro Ctesiphonte' of both men. Added are biographic sketches, argumenta and testimonia. § The Athenian Demosthenes, 384-322 BC, was without doubt the greatest orator of his time. His surviving speeches are mostly connected with his politics. He was a fierce opponent of Philippus II, king of Macedon since 359, who gradually tried to subject the whole of Greece. In 351 he delivered his first Philippic, against him. His speeches against Philippus, known as Philippics, are one long warning against the growing Macedonian power. Demosthenes attacked also the pro-Macedonian elements in Athens, who sought peace with Philippus, and wanted to give in. One of their leaders was the orator Aeschines, 389-314 BC. In 345 Demosthenes and his Athenian ally Timarchus tried to impeach in a speech, called 'De falsa legatione' or 'On the false embassy', Aeschines 'for wilfully neglecting the interest of Athens as a member of the embassy which had negociated the peace' (H.J. Rose, A handbook of Greek literature, London 1965, p. 291). Demosthenes held Aeschines responsible for Philip's use of the peace negotiations to intervene in other Greek city-states. Demosthenes was unsuccessful and Aeschines was acquitted, having delivered a speech in which he defends himself against accusations of treason and collusion with the enemy. Instead of refuting the accusations directly, Aeschines used Athenian Civil Procedure to argue against Timarchus as a qualified prosecutor. The feud reached its peak in 330 with Demosthenes' most famous oratorical effort, the so-called speech 'On the Crown'. A member of his party, Ctesiphon, had proposed in 336 to honor Demosthenes for his services, as was customary, with a golden crown. Nothing came of it the next 6 years, mainly because Aeschines accused Ctesiphon of legal irregularities, but in effect he attacked Demosthenes' policy. In 330, after a charge of Aeschines, 'Demosthenes replied in the masterpiece, commonly known in modern times as the 'De Corona'. It is partly a formal rebuttal of the charge against Ktesiphon, but this is the weakest part of it, for technically Aischines had the law on his side. Substantially, it is a magnificent defence of the principles guiding the anti-Macedonian party, justifying them in face of failure. Less to modern taste is its bitter personal attack on Aischines, who however had not spared Demosthenes in his own speech'.

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.

        De vita S. Francisci Xaverii, qui primus e Societate Jesu in Indiam & Japoniam evangelium invexit, libri sex....

      An important, early biography (here in a later edition) of the great Renaissance figure St. Francis Xavier. Torsellino (1545-99) entered the Society of Jesus at age 18, went on to serve in a variety of capacities in Rome, Florence, and Loretto, and is the author of a number of important books, including the present work and an edition of St. Francis Xavier's letters. His biography of St. Francis (1506-52), the great Jesuit missionary to the East Indies and Japan and => the order's first great martyr, appeared for the first time in 1594. Produced in his absence, it was full of errors: He quickly issued a corrected edition and several subsequent printings occurred, including translations from the Latin into German, English, Spanish, Flemish, French, and Hungarian. Searches of OCLC and the NUC reveal => no U.S. libraries holding this "centennial" edition.

        Abbildung des Papsttums. [Wittenberg, H. Lufft (?), 1545].

      1545. Broadsheets, various sizes. 7 woodcuts from the series (2 in duplicate). Each with one woodcut from the workshop of Lucas Cranach. Matted in half calf portfolio with spine title. Luther's famous anti-papist propaganda woodcuts. In 1545, Luther's attacks on papism culminated in his fiercely polemical treatise "Wider das Papsttum zu Rom, vom Teufel gestiftet". At the same time he produced a series of broadsheets which came to be known as "Abbildung des Papsttums", probably published by Hans Lufft in Wittenberg. Luther's verses, coarse to the degree of obscenity, are accompanied by no less scurrilous woodcuts. "It is beyond doubt that they originated in Cranach's workshop" (Grisar/H.). These strikingly horrific cartoons were widely reprinted and copied; prints struck from the original blocks are extremely rare. Grisar und Heege (1923) know of no more than 18 copies, of which only seven are complete or near-complete; Claus and Pegg (1982) cite no more than five holding locations for any one woodcut (including all variants). The present set was discovered in a Saxon binding of 1569. According to Grisar and Heege, a complete set is made up of nine woodcuts (an additional image mentioned by Claus and Pegg was probably not published until later and does not belong to the original series; cf. Grisar/H. 40 & 63 ff.). Our set comprises seven different images (two in duplicates); it lacks the woodcuts known as "Sauritt" and "Sackpfeiferesel". - 1. Monstrum Romae inventum mortu(um) in Tiberi. Anno 1496 (c. 22 x 18 cm). - Claus/P. 2.3 ("current location unknown"). Slight worming; border trimmed (slight loss to text and image); most of German printed caption trimmed away. - 2. Regnum Satanae et Papae. 2. Thess. 2 (18,5 x 20,5 cm). - Claus/P. 3.3. Some worming; image trimmed. Latin text is preserved; German text missing. - 3. Hic oscula pedibus Papae figuntur (22 x 18 cm). - Claus/P. 4.2. Wants right border; wants most of the German text (worming); woodcut and Latin text are present. - 4. Adoratur Papa deus terrenus (c. 18 x 21 cm). - Claus/P. 5. - Some worming; lower edge trimmed; wants German text - 5. Digna merces Papae satanissimi et Cardinalium suorum (22 x 18 cm). - Cf. Claus/P. 9. Right border and Latin title trimmed. - 6. The same (15,5 x 21,5 cm). Probably trial print. Substantial loss to image; some worming; wants German text. - 7. Papa agit gratias caesaribus pro immensis beneficiis (22 x 16 cm). - Claus/P. 8. Probably trial print. Latin text wormed; German text missing. Woodcut complete but wormed and cut (remargined). - 8. The same (18 x 22 cm). - Title printed cleanly; slight worming; image slightly trimmed. Wants German text. - 9. Ortus et origo Papae. (22 x 18 cm). - Claus/P. 1.2. Insignificant worming below woodcut (image perfectly preserved), first line of German text preserved. Slight browning and brownstaining; margins slightly wormed, but very well preserved for a trove of binding waste sheets. - Includes: M. Luther. (Abbildung des Papsttums). Facsimile edition (Frankfurt, Völcker, 1886). Large 4to. With 8 figs. 9 ff. Contemp. wrappers. - Grisar/H. IV, 62, note 1. Claus/Pegg 3505a. H. Grisar & F. Heege. Luthers Kampfbilder. Vols.

        Dialogo.. della institution delle donne. Secondo li tre stati, che cadono nella vita humana.

      Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, 1545. (bound with:)ID. I quattro libri delle osservationi&hellip, Di nuovo da lui medesimo ricoretti, et ampliati, con le apostille. Sesta editione. Venezia, Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, 1560.Two works in one volume 8vo, 80 leaves + 240 pp. With the printer's device on the title-pages. 17th-century vellum over boards, manuscript title on the spine, blue edges, entry of ownership on the title-page of the second work: &lsquo,Degli Sampericoli', which had been thoroughly annotated by a contemporary hand (these annotations contain corrections and remarks on the Italian language and are slightly shaved), first title-page a bit stained, some foxing, but a very good, genuine copy.I:) RARE FIRST EDITION of this treatise of conduct for women, which aimed to define the nature of women, their role in society and their behavior in everyday life. It adopts the tripartite division used since the Middle Ages by preachers in their sermons ad status: unmarried girls, married women and widows (cf. H. Sanson, Introduction, in: &ldquo,Lodovico Dolce, Dialogo della institutione delle donne&rdquo,, Cambridge, 2015, pp. 1-68).&ldquo,In 1545, Giolito published the Dialogo lella institution delle donne, by the poligrafo Lodovico Dolce, a close collaborator, it was republished in 1547, 1553, and 1560. Actually, it was a close adaptation of the Spanish humanist Juan Luis Vives's well-known De institutione feminae Christianae (1524), one of the first works exclusively treating women's education and proper conduct. Vives's treatise quickly became very popular throughout Europe, being translated into English, Dutch, French, German, and Italian (an original Italian translation by Pietro Lauro was published by Vincenzo Valgrisi in 1546). Although not directly dealing with the woman question, Vives rebutted the broadly held view that women were unable to engage in letters, but still drew a sharp division between women's and men's educational needs, stressing that women's education aims at the safekeeping if their chastity and not a public life. Following most of Vives's arguments and structure (three parts treating virginity, married life and widowhood respectively, Dolce transformed the treatise into a popular Italian genre of dialogue (between two fictional characters, Flaminio and Dorothea) and enriched it with specific Italian references and current events, such as a debate on marriage which is supposed to have taken place in Pietro Aretino's house among Aretino, Fortunio Spira, Paolo Stresio, and the author. However, the most interesting difference between Vives and Dolce is found in their views on the appropriate reading for the young woman. Vives's strong rejection of vernacular literature as immoral and lascivious could not have been adopted by Dolce, - who approves non-lascivious vernacular literature, especially Petrarch and Dante. Dolce's main concern as a poligrafo and collaborator of Giolito was to maximize the demand for vernacular literature by both men and women. It is probably within this context that Dolce omitted the term &lsquo,Christian' from the title in order to have greater latitude for initiative&rdquo, (A. Dialeti, The Debate about Women in Sixteenth Century Italy, in: &ldquo,Renaissance and Reformation&rdquo,, XXVIII/4, 2004, pp. 11-12).&ldquo,Nell'assumere gran parte del materiale dall'opera latina del Vives, Lodovico Dolce innova anzitutto l'aspetto formale, sostituendo alla forma non dialogica e grezzamente espositiva una forma dialogica mimetica vivace e scorrevole. Nella &lsquo,summa' pedante ed erudita, sovraccarica di materiali farraginosi ed aridi qual è il De institutione del Vives, l'intervento dolciano non si esaurisce nella pedissequa ripetizione. Egli seleziona sfrondando il testo dalle eccedenze, sintetizzando le parti prolisse e soprattutto integrando ed aggiornando il repertorio degli exempla. Un intervento intelligente, capace di ricreare il testo conferendogli una struttura agile, di più facile lettura e colmando gli spazi lasciati scoperti dal Vives&rdquo, (A. Chemello, L'&lsquo,Instituzione delle Donne' di Lodovico Dolce ossia l'&lsquo,insegnar virtù et honesti costumi alla donna', in: &ldquo,Trattati scientifici nel Veneto fra il XV e il XVI secolo&rdquo,, Venezia, 1985, pp. 103-134).Edit 16, CNCE 17330, USTC, no. 827061, S. Bongi, Annali di Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari da Trino di Monferrato stampatore in Venezia, Rome, 1890-1895, I, pp. 100-102, R. Kelso, Doctrine for the Lady of the Renaissance, Urbana, 1956, no. 295, G. Passano, I novellieri italiani in prosa, Turin, 1878, I, p. 243, H. Sanson, op.cit., pp. 69-70.II:) &ldquo,SIXTH EDITION&rdquo, (but in fact the fifth). Dolce's grammar of the vernacular was first published in 1550 as Osservazioni nella volgar lingua and then reprinted in 1552, 1556, 1558, 1560. Dolce aligned himself with the tradition established by grammarians of Northern Italy, beginning with Gian Giorgio Trissino and Rinaldo Corso. His goal was not to establish an abstract work but rather, through the description of the expressive value of specific form in context, to arrive at a series of grammatical notions. Dolce also accepted the current opinion to use as the standard the Tuscan used by the great authors of the fourteenth century. However, Dolce recognized that the languages live and grow and adapt themselves to contemporary circumstances. He therefore accepted as inevitable that Italian would be continually modified by the innovations of the men of letters from every region of the peninsula (cf. D. Pastrina, La grammatica di Lodovico Dolce, in: &ldquo,Sondaggi sulla riscrittura del Cinquecento&rdquo,, P. Cherchi, ed., Ravenna, 1998, pp. 63-73).Lodovico Dolce, a native of Venice, belonged to a family of honorable tradition but decadent fortune. He received a good education, and early undertook the task of maintaining himself by the pen. He offers a good example of a new profession made possible by the invention of printing, that of the &lsquo,polygraph' (poligrafo), in other words, the man of letters who made a living by working for a publisher, editing, translating and plagiarizing the works of others as well as producing some of his own. Thus Dolce for over thirty years worked as corrector and editor for the Giolito press. Translations from the Greek and Latin epics, satires, histories, plays (Il Ragazzo, 1541, Il Capitano, 1545, Il Marito, 1560, Il Ruffiano, 1560) and treatises on language (Osservazioni sulla lingua volgare, 1550) and art (Dialogo della Pittura, 1557) followed each other in rapid succession. But he is today mainly remembered as the author of Marianna (1565), a tragedy from the life of Herod (cf. R.H. Terpening, Lodovico Dolce. Renaissance Man of Letters, Toronto, 1997, pp. 2-24).Edit 16, CNCE17365, USTC, no. 827098, Bongi, op. cit., II, p. 89 (exact reprint of the 1558 edition).

      (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. Ce livre est par ailleurs l'un des chefs d'œuvre de la typographie espagnole 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.

OTTAVIO Farnese, duca di Parma. - Nacque il 9 ottobre 1524 a Valentano, nel Lazio settentrionale (area nella quale diversi centri erano infeudati ai Farnese sin dal XIV secolo), terzogenito di Girolama di Ludovico Orsini, conte di Pitigliano, e di Pier Luigi, figlio del cardinale Alessandro Farnese.Già prima di compiere dieci anni, fu inviato a Bologna presso il collegio Ancarano di cui era protettore lo stesso cardinale Farnese. Qui apprese i primi rudimenti degli studi umanistici. L'ascesa al soglio pontificio del nonno (Paolo III), il 13 ottobre 1534, determinò il suo ritorno a Roma e il suo ingresso a corte.Nel dicembre 1535, il papa gli fece dono di una spada e di due esemplari di liuto, strumento che Ottavio studiava sotto la guida del maestro Francesco da Milano; nel contempo, con il vescovo di Viterbo Gian Pietro de' Grassi, iniziava a studiare la matematica e la geometria. Nel febbraio 1536 Paolo III gli fece dare alloggio nella Torre Borgia del Palazzo Vaticano, insieme col fratello minore Ranuccio.Ottavio non si sottraeva alle occasioni ufficiali: il 4 aprile 1536, insieme col padre, accolse l'imperatore Carlo V a Roma. Trascorreva però parte dell'anno anche a Nepi, che con bolla Videlicet immeriti del 31 ottobre 1537 il papa infeudò con Castro, Ronciglione e altri luoghi del Viterbese, a Pier Luigi Farnese. La promozione cardinalizia del fratello maggiore Alessandro (18 dicembre 1534) fece di lui il continuatore designato delle fortune familiari dei Farnese, assiduamente coltivate da Paolo III...

        Les Triumphes de la noble et amoureuse dame, et l'art de honnestement aymer, composé par le Traverseur des voyes périlleuses. Nouvellement imprimé à Paris.

      Paris Jehan André 1545 In-8 de (12)-390 ff., maroquin bleu, dos à nerfs, cartouche doré sur les plats, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrure (Duru et Chambolle 1863). Belle édition parisienne imprimée en lettres rondes. L'édition originale fut publiée à Poitiers en 1530. Grand rhétoriqueur poitevin appartenant à la génération qui précède la Pléiade, le poète Jean Bouchet (1476-1557) dit le « traverseur des voyes périlleuses » proche de Rabelais et moqué par Du Bellay, n'en connut pas moins comme moraliste un succès durable incarné par les Triomphes de la noble et amoureuse dame (Poitiers, 1530) dont le titre trompeur masque une encyclopédie dévote en prose et en vers. Jean Bouchet a en effet fait entrer dans un cadre allégorique un véritable traité de théologie et de morale : la Noble Dame n'est autre que l'âme elle-même et son triomphe l'accomplissement de la vertu et de la morale au quotidien selon l'Eglise. Très bel exemplaire soigneusement établi par Hippolyte Duru et René-Victor Chambolle en 1863, dernière année de leur association. Très pâle mouillure aux feuillets XXV-XXVI. Tchemerzine, III, 73, c.

      [Bâle, 1545]. 267 x 344 mm. L'une des toutes premières cartes imprimées du continent africain, issue de la Cosmographie de Münster.

        Vulcano e I Ciclopi forgiano le frecce per gli Amorini

      1545. Bulino, 1546 - 47 circa, iscritto in basso a destra 'Aeneas vic Parmen'. Da un soggetto di Primaticcio. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Il soggetto dell'incisione deriva da un affresco del Primaticcio che ornava il camino del Gabinetto del Re, realizzato negli anni 1541 - 1545. Andato distrutto sotto Luigi XIV, l'opera è nota grazie ad un disegno preparatorio conservato al Louvre inv. no. 8533) e attraverso 3 traduzioni a stampa: oltre alla presente incisione anonima, un bulino inciso dal Maestro F.G (Bartsch IX.25.4) e un'acquaforte anonima (Bartsch XVI.403.71). Il bulino inciso da Vico, nello stesso verso del disegno, presenta numerose corrispondenze: la vegetazione, l'architettura, la zona d'ombra che domina il Ciclope che aziona il soffietto. D'altra parte, il piccolo paesaggio che s'intravede sullo sfondo a destra, sembra essere un'invenzione del Vico. La qualità esecutiva dell'opera, spinge a datarla al periodo veneziano di Vico (1546 - 1563), e, più in particolare, sarebbe riferibile al biennio 1546 - 47, ovvero al tempo della visita di Enrico II a Venezia. L'opera è interessante sotto diversi aspetti: testimonia la diffusione delle opere di Fointainebleau attraverso le stampe pubblicate nello stesso periodo; inoltre, sono noti esemplari dell'opera stampati in saguigna, esattamente il colore del disegno preparatorio, circostanza che rende plausibile la possibilità che l'incisore o lo stampatore conoscessero effettivamente il disegno del Louvre. Ex collezione A. C. de Poggi (Lugt 617). Engraving, 1546 - 1547 circa, lettered lower right 'Aeneas vic Parmen'. After Primaticcio. A great impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, very good condition. The subject of this work is from a Primaticcio's fresco which decorated the fireplace of the King's Cabinet, painted in the years 1541 - 1545. Destroyed under Louis XIV, this composition is known through a drawing in the Louvre, inv. no. 8689, supposedly drawn by the printmaker after Primaticcio's original. There are two other prints after this composition: an engraving by the Master FG (Bartsch IX.25.4), in the same direction as the drawing, and an anonymous etching, in reverse (Bartsch XVI.403.71). These engraving by Vico, in the same direction of the drawing, presents numerous correspondences: the vegetation, the architecture, the shadow area overlooking the Cyclops operating the bellows. On the other hand, the small landscape glimpsed in the background on the right, it seems to be an invention by Vico. The executive quality, dates the engraving to the Venetian period of Vico (1546 - 1563), and, more exactly, would be attributable to the two - years 1546 - 47, ie at the time of the visit of Henry II in Venice. The work is interesting in several respects: it attests the circulation of Fontainebleau's works through prints published in the same period. In addition, there are some copies of this work printed in red, like the color of the preparatory drawing, that makes plausible that the engraver or the printer actually knew the drawing. Ex collection A. C. de Poggi (Lugt 617). Bartsch XV.297.31; TIB XXX.46; Le Beau Style, p.156 n.65; B. Davis, Mannerist Prints, n. 61; S. Ferrara - G. Gaeta, Incisori bolognesi ed emiliani del sec.
