Occasional neat underlining and marginalia. 19thc full calf, the spine with raised bands, blind decoration to compartments, two black lettering pieces. A Very Good copy the Editio Princeps of Aelianus's most important work, "a miscellany of anecdotes and biographical sketches, lists, pithy maxims, and descriptions of natural wonders and strange local customs, in 14 books, with many surprises for the cultural historian and the mythographer, anecdotes about the famous Greek philosophers, poets, historians, and playwrights and myths instructively retold. The emphasis is on various moralizing tales about heroes and rulers, athletes and wise men; reports about food and drink, different styles in dress or lovers, local habits in giving gifts or entertainments, or in religious beliefs and death customs; and comments on Greek painting. Aelian gives an account of fly fishing, using lures of red wool and feathers, of lacquerwork, serpent worship -- Essentially the Various History is a Classical "magazine" in the original senses of that word. He is not perfectly trustworthy in details, and his agenda was heavily influenced by Stoic opin … [Click Below for Full Description]

CASTIGLIONE, Baldessare
Venetia [Venice]: nelle case de figlioli di Aldo [I Manuzio], 1545.. Fourth Aldine printing. Small folio. (122) ff. Eighteenth century full pigskin, gilt lettering to the spine, all edges green, a single leaf in book three lacking but the text supplied in consummate manuscript, predating or contemporary with the binding. Faint dampstain cutting across the upper corner of the last 16 leaves at the gutter, also evident on both pastedowns, a few marks to the boards, an attractive copy. Baldessare Castiglione (1478-1529) was very much a man of his day, educated in a Humanist school in Milan in the 1490s where he also served at the court of Duke Ludovico Sforza. He returned to his native Mantua on the death of his father at the age of 21, whereupon he entered the service of the local marquis, Francesco Gonzaga, for the next five years. During this time he became acquainted with Guidobaldo da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino, whose court he entered in 1504. Castiglione acted in various capacities for Guidobaldo and his successor, principally diplomatic, though he also played an active role in the flourishing cultural life of the court. His talents took him to Rome in ambassadorial roles for Urbino and subsequently Mantua, leading to his involvement with the Vatican and his later ecclesiastical career (towards the end of his life he was made Bishop of Avila). He is now best remembered for this work, first published in 1528 by the Aldine Press. Written in the form of a dialogue between several protagonists, Castiglione sought to define the courtly ideal. Going beyond a mere book of e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible
1545. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. EXQUISITE & COMPLETE / Exceedingly Rare BIBLE A rare 1545 second octavo edition of Robert Stephanus' 'Biblia'. This printing is the first reissue of the 1543 Zurich version, printed in parallel columns with the Vulgate. The margins contain notes which profess to be drawn from 'memoranda' made by friends of the editor during the lectures of Vatablus, but they appear to be colored by the religious opinions of Stephanus himself. Some of these notes had already appeared, together with a selection of variant readings, in quarto edition of the Pentateuch. While it is the second octavo of Estienne, it is the first time he printed the Zurich Bible. He amended the notes of Vatable in a way that reflected his own religious opinions - thus, this Bible landed on the Prohibited Book Index. The world 'Biblia' in the title is enclosed within an ornamental frame. Below it is the device of an olive-tree with the legend 'Noli altum sapere'. According to Pettigrew, "This is a very scarce and beautiful edition. It is printed in a very small but distinct character in two columns. This edition has the usual prefaces, indexes, interpretations, etc, and this edition was placed in the 'Index Librorum. Prohibitorum." (Pettigrew 102). [Attributes: First Edition]

PRIMA RARA EDIZIONE di una delle prime pubblicazioni a commentare favorevolmente le nuove scoperte di Copernico, con una prefazione di Philip Melanchthon. L'opera ebbe notevole successo da essere ampiamente copiata in seguito; fu ristampata in questa forma nelle opere raccolte da Schoener (Opera Mathematica, 1561) e fu tradotta in italiano nel 1554. Tra gli oroscopi discussi c'è quello dell'autore con alcune interessanti informazioni autobiografiche. Il testo ha una lunga prefazione di Philip Melanchthon che raccomanda lo studio dell'astrologia come scienza complementare alla teologia. Come la maggior parte delle opere uscite dai torchi di vom Berge-Neuber, è un volume splendidamente stampato, arricchito dall'uso di belle iniziali in legno di cui la "S" alla carta 2 contiene un bel ritratto di Schoener nel suo studio mentre contempla una sfera armillare. Cfr. Thorndike, V p. 367, "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.

Bible - Latin - 1545.
Ex Officina Roberti Stephani (Estienne) Lutetiae, (Paris), 1545. Three volumes of five. Old Testament only. ff. [12], 156, 172, 116. The missing New Testament would have had: ff. 180, 128, [40]. Old Testament here collates as: *8, a8-t8, v4, aa8-xx8, yy4, aaa8-ooo8, ppp4. Each page lightly ruled in red. The title Biblia enclosed within a woodcut ornamental frame. Below is Stephanus famous printer's device of an olive-tree, with St. Paul pointing upwards. Text is Latin in small Roman type. Small 8vo. 195 mm. Old (original) full leather binding, quite worn. Early manuscript ownerships (partially in Greek) on the title page. Among them is one that seems to read Claude-Etienne, but frankly I leave it to better scholars than I to decipher these inscriptions. This is Robert Estienne's second octavo edition of the Latin Bible, after the first of 1534). The texts are printed in parallel columns - the Vulgate inside and the Zurich outside. This is the first time the two appeared together. It is also the first time Estienne printed the Zurich version, the text being taken from the first printing ever of that version - Froschauer 1543. According to Darlow and Moule, Estienne added much to the work: 'The margins contain notes which profess to be drawn from memoranda made by friends of the editor during the lectures of F. Vatablus. but they appear to be coloured - to some extent at least - by the religious opinions of R. Stephanus himself. Some of these notes had already appeared, together with a selection of variant readings, in a quarto edition of the Pentateuch printed by R. Stephanu … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

NEBRIJA (Antonio de).
(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.

Legatura del primo Ottocento in mezza pergamena con punte, carta marmorizzata ai piatti, titolo in oro su tassello in marocchino rosso al dorso. Nota manoscritta al frontespizio. Edizione originale della lettura che il Varchi tenne a Padova presso l'Accademia degli Infiammati di un sonetto del Della Casa sulla gelosia. L'opera si apre con una dedica di Francesco Sansovino a Gaspara Stampa, datata Venezia, 26 febbraio 1545, e si chiude con un sonetto di Baldassarre Stampa, fratello di Gaspara. "Given the centrality of the theme of jealousy in [Gaspra Stampa's] Rime - almost a sixth of them – it is illuminating to look at how Stampa's contemporary and friend Benedetto Varchi analyzed this emotion. In the small octavo volume of his lecture, Della Casa's sonnet, which Varchi is said to have read loud to his audience of Infiammati, begins: Cura che di timor ti nutri, e cresci, / e tosto fede ai tuoi sospetti acquisti, / Et mentre con la fiamma il gelo mesci, / Tutto'l regno d'amor turbi, e contristi. (Care, you who feed and grow fat on fear, / And quickly win belief for your suspicions, / And while you mingle flame with ice, / You disturb and sadden all Love's kingdom.) "Care" may seem a rather vague term here, but Varchi explains that Della Casa uses it to lead the reader gradually to understand jealousy as a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura settecentesca in marocchino rosso con tre cornici a filetto impresse in oro ai piatti, dorso a 5 nervi con fregi e titolo in oro su tassello in marocchino verde, contropiatti e sguardie in carta caillouté, tagli dorati (lieve usura delle cerniere, lieve fessurazione al dorso, qualche macchia ai piatti). Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris del grande librario e bibliografo Tammaro De Marinis, etichetta cartacea azzurra di Stassins et Xavier Libraires e, più in basso, altra etichetta con segnatura manoscritta. Ottima copia. Edizione originale di questo commedia in cinque atti in prosa (più prologo), basata sull'Andria terenziana, che fu rappresentata per la prima volta nel 1545. Essa appartiene alle cosidette commedie "osservate" del Cecchi, ossia a quelle di più marcata ispirazione classica, in cui vengono rigorosamente rispettate le unità aristoteliche. Tra le commedie "osservate" figurano anche La Dote, Gli Incantesimi, I Dissimili, L'Assiuolo e La Stiava, tutte pubblicate dal Giolito nello stesso anno e vendute sia separatamente che in blocco a formare "un elegante e ricercatissimo volume" (Bongi). Il Cecchi, fiorentino, assisté e rimase profondamente segnato da due fatti che lo colpirono in ancor giovane età: l'assedio di Firenze del 1530 e l'uccisione del padre con il conseguente difficoltoso tentativo di ottener giustizia sul colpevole.

Bible. Latin. Vulgate & Zurich. 1545.
Lutetiae: Ex Officina Roberti Stephani, 1545. 8vo (20.5 cm, 8"). [12], 156, 172, 116, 180, 128, [40] ff. This is Robert Estienne's first printing of “the Zurich Bible” — i.e., the Latin text as presented in the Froschauer 1543 printing that first brought together => the Zurich reformers' Old Testament and Apocrypha as prepared with apparatus, prefaces, and commentary by Jud, Bibliander, and Pellikan, and a revised version of the New Testament of Erasmus — with Estienne pairing them, for the first time, with a printing of the Latin Vulgate versions set in a parallel column for comparison.    This choice of texts in itself was a statement; and, according to Darlow and Moule, Estienne was more than their printer here: "The margins contain notes which profess to be drawn from memoranda made by friends of the editor during the lectures of F. Vatablus . . . , but they appear to be coloured — to some extent at least — by the religious opinions of R. Stephanus himself. Some of these notes had already appeared, together with a selection of variant readings, in a quarto edition of the Pentateuch printed by R. Stephanus in 1541."    The volume's title-page shows the simple all-caps word "Biblia" printed within a decorative woodcut frame below which is a version of the Estienne printer's device. The text includes the Apocrypha and Psalms at the end of the New Testament; the inner margin contains subject headings, references, and variants, while the outer margin provides the above-mentioned notes. The edition, in octavo, was Estienne's second venture only at producing a Bible in that fo … [Click Below for Full Description]
