MARSILIUS OF PADUA. - [THE PROPHET OF A NEW WORLD]
Neuburgi Danubii, 1545. [Colophon: Neuburg an der Thunaw, bey Hannsen Kilian, 1545]. Small folio. Bound in a near contemporary (dated 1602) full vellum binding with handwritten title to spine. The initials "HVHVS" and the year "1602" in gilt to front board. Blindstamped frame to boeards. Vellum cords, and remains of silk ties to boards. A three-line contemporary handwritten inscription to front board, barely legible, presumably an old ower's inscription, as it seems to end with a signature, and definitely the date "1545". The binding has been waterdamaged at some point, leaving it a bit soiled and "wavy", but still solid and fine. Title-page slightly dusty and a dampstain to lower corner throughout (apart from a few pages, very faint), otherwise a very nice and clean copy. A few contemporary marginal annotations. Stamp to verso of title-page: "Burggrafen zu Dohna". Beautiful illustrated woodcut title-border. Woodcut ornaments to top and bottom of all leaves of the preface, some of those at the top shaved (still leaving large margins down to the text). Woodcut device to verso of last leaf. (12), LXX ff.. Scarce first edition of the highly influential first German translation - of seminal importance to the Protestant Reformation! - of Marsilius of Padua's groundbreaking "Defensor Pacis", "one of the most remarkable books in the history of politics" (Figgis, p. 33), "the most thorough and original treatise on the relation of powers written by a medieval analyst" (Watt, p. 416), which "was so exceptional because it had foreshadowed later developments on political thought" (Garn … [Click Below for Full Description]

GASSER, Achilles Pirmin
Nuremberg: J. Petreius, 1545. Sole known copy of a prediction pamphlet for 1546 with the first reference to Copernicus printed in German as well as the first reference to helioicentrism in a vernacular language. The now little-known astronomer Achilles Gasser was intimately connected with the rise of heliocentrism through his patronage of Georg Rheticus, Copernicus’ student, who facilitated the 1543 publication of De Revolutionibus. Gasser was one of the first to read Copernicus’ completed work, as its printer, Johann Petreius (who also published the present pamphlet), sent Gasser a copy. The present edition of the Practica is unique in its early use of the German vernacular to promote Copernicus’ importance, as well as in its choice of a popular context (ie a farmer’s almanach).The Copernicus reference appears in Gasser’s letter to Caspar Joachim Täntzl, a Tyrolean nobleman whose family mining business brought him an amateur interest in science. The dedicatory letter was likely composed in German for Täntzl, who had a non-academic background. Indeed, it is no mere translation of the introduction to the Latin edition, but includes an entirely different text:" . . . the most learned and wonderful man Dr. Nicolaus Copernicus, away off in Prussia, has taken up the task with such seriousness, diligence, and steadfastness, that for the establishment and restoration of astronomy he has had to lay an utterly and completely new foundation, unheard of before, or rather has been compelled to posit hypotheses not employed by other scholars (namely, that the Sun is … [Click Below for Full Description]

ESTIENNE, Charles.
Paris, Simon de Colines, 1545. Folio, ff. [12], pp. 375 (recte 379), with Colines' large woodcut device on title, 62 full-page woodcuts and 101 smaller woodcuts in the text; narrow strip cut away from upper outer corner of title; the title lightly stained; 18th-century French speckled calf, head and tail of spine expertly restored; upper outer margin of title with late 19th-century ownership inscription in ink.an unusually clean, crisp, and unsophisticated copy of the first edition of one of the most magnificent illustrated anatomical works of the 16th century. The full-page woodcuts are striking examples of Mannerist art and are some of the most memorable images in medical illustration, surpassed only by Vesalius. Although published two years after Vesalius, the woodcuts were begun in 1530 and much of the printing had been completed by 1539, when work was interrupted by a lawsuit brought by the co-author, the surgeon Etienne de la Rivière, against Estienne. It is likely that Vesalius, who studied in Paris from 1533 to 1536, saw Estienne's work and was influenced by it.This is the 'first published work to include illustrations of the whole external venous and nervous systems' (Garrison-Morton) and is particularly important in neurology for containing the most detailed pre-Vesalian brain dissections. 'His eight dissections of the brain, made in 1539, give more anatomical detail than had previously appeared, particularly the first graphical presentation of the difference between convolutional patterns of the cerebrum and cerebellum' (McHenry, Garrison's History of Neurology). … [Click Below for Full Description]

GEMINUS, Thomas [Andreas VESALIUS]
London, [colophon:] John Herford, October 1545. Folio (398 x 270 mm), ff 44 plus engraved title and 40 engraved plates, one folding; margins of title frayed, not touching image, six plates with old paper reinforcement on blank versos, where the plate edge has cut into the paper, again not affecting images, a few incidental stains, heavier on last plate of surgical instruments, some slight browning to some text leaves and a small area of marginal waterstaining, but still a very good, attractive copy of this work, in contemporary calf, gilt panels and fleurons on covers, rebacked and recornered. First edition, a very attractive copy of this famous engraved version of the Vesalian plates, the first appearance of these images after the Fabrica itself in 1543. ‘Although by tradition and Vesalius’s own comments this work has been considered the first of the many plagiarisms of Vesalius’s Fabrica and Epitome, Geminus gave full credit to Vesalius in a bold headline on the first leaf of text. He did, however, redraw Vesalius’s woodcuts without permission. This is the second work [and the first of any consequence] printed in England with engraved plates. The new medium of copperplate engraving used by Geminus allowed a sharpness of line impossible for the wood engravers employed by Vesalius. This is in fact the first medical book illustrated with a suite of full-page engraved plates & provided a summary of Vesalius’s discoveries more complete than the Epitome but without the size and expense of the Fabrica' (Garrison and Morton 376.1). The Compendiosa was dedicated to the king, who w … [Click Below for Full Description]

PATRIZI (Francesco)
Venise, Alde 1545 - in-8, 278 ff., [4] ff. n. ch. (table et feuillet avec la marque aldine), signatures A-Z, AA-MM, toutes en 8 sauf la dernière, vélin rigide, dos lisse orné d'urnes et de guirlandes d'oves dorées, pièce de titre cerise, tranches vertes (rel. du XIXe siècle). Bon exemplaire. Première traduction italienne de l'un des deux ouvrages politiques de Patrizi, De Reipublicae institutione, paru d'abord en latin en 1520. Natif de Sienne, Francesco Patrizi (1413-1492) fut nommé évêque de Gaète en 1460. Il gouverna ce diocèse jusqu'à sa mort, et fut également un moment gouverneur "civil" de Foligno. C'est un humaniste de la meilleure formation, dont la réflexion tourne autour du gouvernement et de ses conditions d'exercice. Quant à Giovanni Fabrini (1516-1580), il fut surtout grammairien et traducteur, et se fit un nom par un immense travail de vulgarisation des classiques de langue latine, pas seulement ceux de l'Antiquité, mais aussi des auteurs "néo-latins" comme on dit de nos jours où l'on fait mine de découvrir l'extrême richesse de ce domaine des lettres européennes, la quasi-totalité des érudits et savants ayant composé dans cette langue jusqu'au milieu du XVIIe siècle, et bien au-delà.

EUCLID / CAIANI, Angelo, ed. & tr
Rome: Antonio Blado Asolano, 1545. Rare first edition of Euclid extracts in Italian, preceded only by Tartaglia’s translation of 1543, of which it is independent. The first Italian translation made directly from the Greek. According to Rose, (Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 189), the editor and translator Cainai omitted the proofs and figures of most editions because they were not Euclidean. According to Thomas-Stanford, it was issued along with (but is bibliographically separate from) a Greek language selection which the Roman publisher Blado published the same year. (Cf. Thomas-Stanford 26). The work was possibly intended for the use of young people, as in the preface, we read that it is dedicated by the translator, Angelo Caiano, ‘allo eruditissimo Giovane, Messer Antonio Altovitti”, the scion of a great Roman family. (Raphael painted a great portrait of the young man’s relation Bindo Altovitti, now in the National Gallery, Washington). In the preface, Caiani affirms that he made the translation himself from the Greek. Of course, like the Tartaglia, the translation could also have been used by any Latinless reader. OCLC lists UCLA, Brown, Utah, Burndy, Harvard and Michigan. The only copy of the Greek is held by Burndy. Little is known about Caiani. He had a connection with the learned secretary of Ranuccio Farnese Annibal Caro, having copied one of the latter’s manuscripts (Rose, ibid., p. 189). * Thomas Stanford 35; Fumagalli/Belli, Blado [1891].

Bei capilettera figurati xilografici. Qualche minima arrossatura. Bell'esemplare. Terza edizione, esemplata sulla seconda di Giolito, di due anni antecedente. I Motti tradotti dal Cadamosto si stamparono qui per la prima volta; ma le Sentenze tradotte dal Liburnio erano già state pubblicate nelle case dello Stagnino nel 1527, con altro titolo e con una dedica a messer Francesco Cornaro. Il Giolito fece una nuova stampa nel 1545 delle due piccole raccolte riunite; ma non sono a nostra notizia altre edizioni fatte in Italia. Il libro ebbe maggior fortuna di là dall'Alpi, dove pare si usasse per lo studio della lingua nostra. (Bongi). Il Liburnio (nel Friuli, 1474-Venezia, 1557), noto grammatico veneziano, fu canonico della Basilica di San Marco e pievano di Santa Fosca a Venezia.

SCHÖNER, Johannes
Nuremberg, Johannes Montanus & Ulrich Neuber, 1545. With 2 woodcut title-vignettes, 2 large and several small figured woodcut initials, many diagrams and tables in the text, large woodcut printer's mark at the end. 8 unn., 152 num. leaves. Folio. 19th century antique styled blind-stamped leather, spine on 4 raised bands, gilt-lettering (new endpapers). Nuremberg, Johannes Montanus & Ulrich Neuber, 1545. First edition. One of the earliest publications to comment favorably on the new discoveries of Copernicus, and one of Schöner's main works on astronomy. Johannes Schöner (1477-1547), German astronomer, mathematician, was the greatest cosmographer of the early sixteenth century. He was best known for his terrestrial globes: the one of 1515 which was, after Waldseemüller (1507), the second to show America, and the one of 1524, which was the first to delineate Magellan's circumnavigation. Schöner taught mathematics at the "Egidiengymnasium" in Nuremberg, founded by Melanchthon in 1526. The appearance of a comet in August 1531 impelled him to publish Regiomontanus' "De cometae magnitudine" (Nuremberg, 1531). This was the first of his valuable editions from the manuscripts of this great astronomer. By rediscovering Aristarch of Samos (c. 320-250 B.C.), Schöner paved the way for Kepler's heliocentric view. The present work appeared two years before the author's death, just two years after his co-publication of the foremost astronomical book, Nicolaus Copernicus "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium" (Nuremberg, 1543).

Greek type; Estienne's basilisk device as king's printer in Greek on title-page; foliated and grotesque Greek initials and matching headpieces. Ownership inscription of Sir John Taylor Coleridge (1790-1876; nephew of the poet), dated 1853, noting the previous owner as Dr Butler, Dean of Peterborough, on the front free endpaper. Spine a little dusty, faint stain to upper outer corner through to p.24, not affecting text, else an excellent copy, fresh and clean. Editio princeps. The Byzantine scholar Manuel Moschopulus (fl. Constantinople 1282-1328) had been a student of Maximus Planudes; this grammar formed the basis of the later works by Chrysoloras, Theodore Gaza, and Constantine Lascaris. The book, the only quarto among Estienne's superb sequence of editiones principes, is only the second text (after Estienne's edition of Eusebius the previous year) to be printed entirely in the French royal Greek types (grecs du roi) cut by Claude Garamond, widely regarded as the finest Greek types ever cut.

GASSER, Achilles Pirmin
Nuremberg: J. Petreius, 1545. Sole known copy of a prediction pamphlet for 1546 with the first reference to Copernicus printed in German as well as the first reference to helioicentrism in a vernacular language. The now little-known astronomer Achilles Gasser was intimately connected with the rise of heliocentrism through his patronage of Georg Rheticus, Copernicus’ student, who facilitated the 1543 publication of De Revolutionibus. Gasser was one of the first to read Copernicus’ completed work, as its printer, Johann Petreius (who also published the present pamphlet), sent Gasser a copy. The present edition of the Practica is unique in its early use of the German vernacular to promote Copernicus’ importance, as well as in its choice of a popular context (ie a farmer’s almanach).The Copernicus reference appears in Gasser’s letter to Caspar Joachim Täntzl, a Tyrolean nobleman whose family mining business brought him an amateur interest in science. The dedicatory letter was likely composed in German for Täntzl, who had a non-academic background. Indeed, it is no mere translation of the introduction to the Latin edition, but includes an entirely different text:" . . . the most learned and wonderful man Dr. Nicolaus Copernicus, away off in Prussia, has taken up the task with such seriousness, diligence, and steadfastness, that for the establishment and restoration of astronomy he has had to lay an utterly and completely new foundation, unheard of before, or rather has been compelled to posit hypotheses not employed by other scholars (namely, that the Sun is … [Click Below for Full Description]

SERLIO, Sebastiano
Paris: [Jehan Barbé], 1545. A large-margined example of the first edition of the first two books of Serlio's general treatise, devoted to geometry, perspective and theatrical scenery, and as such considered "the first published account of modern theatrical practice." (Hewitt, The Renaissance Stage, p. 21.) As with the whole of the treatise, the outstanding feature of these two books lies in their overwhelmingly practical orientation, a welcome departure from the highly theoretical, not to say abstruse presentation found in earlier architectural works (mainly translations of Vitruvius). Serlio?s intention was to offer architects ?a pattern book in which the architect could find solutions for all sorts of problems." -- Blunt, Art and Architecture in France, p. 73. The work gives two methods for determining perspective, the second a form of the distance point method exemplified by its many woodcut diagrams and exercises. Book II also contains a detailed historical account of the theater Serlio built in Vicenza in 1539. The magnificent woodcuts of tragic, comic and rustic stage scenes "are the first regularly published scene designs" (Hewitt, op.cit.) and with their "Raphaelesque draughtsmanship" (so Kemp), they very likely owe something to the hand of Serlio's teacher, Baldassare Peruzzi. The work received numerous subsequent editions in many languages, though the woodcut illustrations were issued only in this edition. In the 19th century, Brunet and others speculated that an undated Venice edition (Fowler 304) may have been published prior, but this edition is now securely da … [Click Below for Full Description]

Apianus, Petrus:
Antwerp: Aegidius Coppenius Diesthensis for Gregorius de Bonte, 1545.. [2],66 leaves plus folding engraved map. Numerous woodcut maps, charts, and diagrams. Five woodcut illustrations with volvelles or non-moving attachments (lacks volvelle on verso of leaf C3). Quarto. Contemporary limp vellum with remains of two ties. Vellum stained, moderately worn. Contemporary inscription in Greek on recto of front free endpaper, additional contemporary inscription on verso of front free endpaper. Ownership inscription on titlepage of Carlo Alberti and Abraham Pury, 1753, noting that the book belonged to Alberti alone after a division of their books on Aug. 15, 1774. Folding map torn along bottom fold, slight loss of paper but no loss of text; small separate repairs on verso of map. Occasional minor marks and stains in the text, but volvelles and non- moving attachments in fine condition and securely mounted. A very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. This 1545 edition of Apianus' COSMOGRAPHIA... is the second to contain the folding map of the world, which first appeared in a French language edition published in Antwerp the previous year. This world map is important for being one of the earliest to show the full sweep of the east coast of North America. The map displays the eastern side of North America as a narrow land mass, named "Baccalearum," after the cod fisheries off the coasts of New England and Canada. It employs a cordiform projection, much used by Renaissance cartographers to represent the relationship between the Americas and the Old World, and maintains the des … [Click Below for Full Description]
