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.

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.

Antichi restauri e rinforzi marginali al frontespizio e alle prime carte, qualche lieve arrossatura, margine superiore corto. 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. Fu notaio e occupò importanti uffici pubblici. Esercitò anche la mercatura d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. Latin. Vulgate & Zurich. 1545.

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.

Venturino Ruffinelli. In 8vo (mm 143x93). Carte 19, manca l'ultima carta bianca. Segnatura: A-E4. Marca xilografica al frontespizio. Antichi restauri e rinforzi marginali al frontespizio e alle prime carte, qualche lieve arrossatura, margine superiore corto. 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 an obsessi … [Click Below for Full Description]

SERVET, MIGUEL (Michael Servetus, 1511-1553)
Venezia, Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1545. In 8vo (mm. 151x105). Cc. 63, [1]. Segnatura: a-h8. Marca tipografica al titolo e al verso dell'ultima carta. Carattere corsivo. Cartonato posteriore. Annotazioni marginali antiche sul margine di alcune pagine. Segnetti di tarlo nel margine interno di una decina di carte all'inizio del volume, fioriture nel margine di alcune carte, qualche alone e macchia, ma nel complesso bella copia genuina. Rara seconda edizione (prima: Parigi, Simon de Colines, 1537) della seconda pubblicazione medica del Serveto. L'opera, divisa in sei Sermones, tratta della digestione e della composizione ed assunzione degli sciroppi e dei purganti. Contiene inoltre significativi passaggi sulla corretta alimentazione, sottolineando in particolare l'importanza degli agrumi nel facilitare il processo digestivo. Nonostante il titolo dell'opera menzioni come autorità Galeno, l'autore si rifà prevalentemente alle dottrine dei medici arabi. Questa predilezione per i medici arabi rispetto a quelli greci, nonché l'affermazione contenuta nel testo che l'astrologia sia di fondamentale importanza per la pratica medica, gli causarono l'ostilità della facoltà di medicina dell'Università di Parigi (cfr. B. Sanz Pérez, La Bromatologìa en el tiempo y en la Obra de Servet, in: "Anal. Real. Acad. Nac. Farm.", 68, 3, 2002, pp. 20-22 e 33).

Sebastian Munster
Basel, Heinrich Petri. NOVAE INSULAE XXVI NOVA TABULA N.D. but Circa 1545; Sebastian Munster; Basel, Heinrich Petri; 2nd State; w13.2"xh10.2"; 1 Page of Text; Very Rare!!! Great For any Map/History Fan or Collector. Great Gift Idea; Must Have for any Collection!!! ATTRIBUTES: A Beautiful Very Rare Hand Colored Map with one page of text on the back!!! SUMMARY: Rare second state of Munster's map of America which is the earliest map to show both continents of America and the first to use Magellan’s name, Mare Pacificum (Pacific Ocean). Magellan’s galleon, Victoria, is shown near the Straits of Magellan. The map also marks the first appearance of Japan (named Zipangri) on a map, before European contact – it was based on the legends of early explorers such as Marco Polo. The first state of the map was issued in the 1540 and 1542 editions of Munster's Geographia. In 1545, the title was changed to from "Novae Insulae XVII. . ." to "Novae Insulae XXVI . . ." Appeared in only one edition, and is perhaps the rarest of all editions of the map. The Geographia was a new and important edition of Ptolemy, with redesigned maps and the text revised by Münster based on the Willibald Pirckheimer Latin translation with corrections of 1535 by Servetus. On verso a decorative woodcut border who were probably cut by the famous 16th century woodcutter Hans Holbein. The Geographia was landmark work which contained, along with the Ptolemaic maps, several of the most significant modern maps in the history of cartography. BACKGROUND: Sebastian Münster (20 January 1488 – 26 May 1552), was a German carto … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 év … [Click Below for Full Description]

Timbro di biblioteca estinta al frontespizio, ma ottimo esemplare. (1627) Prima edizione rara di questo trattato del giureconsulto veneto Pietro Albignani Trezzio (Treccio sull'Adda, seconda metà del XVI sec. - Venezia, 154..), autore di svariati scritti di controversistica in materia teologica e di diritto canonico. Una parte della sua attività si svolse anche a Trino Vercellese, ove fu chiamato da Guglielmo IX Paleologo per controllare le edizioni giuridiche della tipografia di Giovanni Giolito de Ferrari (cfr. Sincero, Trino e i suoi tipografi, p. 179). Il presente scritto apparve postumo, per le cure del figlio Giovanni Battista, protonotario apostolico, con dedica a Papa Paolo III. "Il Tractatus, dopo la difesa del potere papale e del primato di Pietro, dell'istituzione divina dell'episcopato e del carattere della giurisdizione vescovile, si sofferma sul significato delle indulgenze..., sul giubileo... e sull'applicazione delle indulgenze... combattendo infine la tesi luterana sull'origine positiva della confessione auricolare" (D.B.I., II/p. 3). Per una analisi dettagliata dell'opera cfr. Lauchert, Die italienischen Literarischen gegner Luthers, pp. 381 e 85, unitamente ad altri scritti dell'Albignani.

Sebastian Münster was born in 1488 at Ingelheim near Mainz and died in 1552 at Basel. He was a cartographer, cosmographer, and a Hebrew scholar. His work, the "Cosmographia" from 1544 was the earliest German description of the world. It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French (translated by François de Belleforest), Italian, English, and even Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The "Cosmographia" was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the fascinating woodcuts (some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel … [Click Below for Full Description]

Castiglione Conte Baldassarre
Figlioli di Aldo (Aldus), 1545. A very early and rare printing of Castiglione by Aldus in the original folio format mirroring the 1528 printing. Elaborate Aldine device impressed on the title and at the end on the verso of the colophon leaf. Dedication to Michel de Selva, vescovo di Viseo. Folio, handsomely bound in fine Italian vellum. 122 ff. pp. A beautifully preserved copy, handsome and clean. RARE ALDINE EDITION OF THE CLASSIC LANDMARK IL CORTEGIANO. Castiglione's great work is one of the most famous books of the Italian Renaissance and represents the highest level of committment to the prince and the new political and social order. The Courtier is the prototype of the courtesy book, written as conversation between members of the court. At the time of its composition Castiglione was at the court of Guidobaldo de Montefeltre and Elizabetta Gonzaga at Urbino, together with Bembo, Giuliano de' Medici, Federico Fregoso and other Renaissance luminaries; members of that court feature as speakers in the conversation. Castiglione, after serving the Sforzas at Milan and the Gonzagas at Mantua, came to the Court of Urbino in 1504 where de Montefeltre and his consort Elizabetta Gonzaga were the center of the most brilliant court in Italy, which counted among its members Bembo, Bibbiena, G. de'Medici and many other eminent men. This brilliant book is based on Castiglione's experience of life among these dazzling figures. 'The Courtier' depicts the ideal aistocrat, and it has remained the perfect definition of a gentleman ever since. It is an epitome of the highest moral and socia … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible. Latin. Vulgate & Zurich. 1545.
Ex Officina Roberti Stephani, 1545. 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 format. => This copy is lightly ruled in red throughout. Binding … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small 4to. Nuremberg: J. Petreius, 1548. A most attractive sammelband of Geber's most important writings in a handsome contemporary binding, with an important provenance. This volume has two magnificent woodcut bookplates on the front and rear pastedowns. The first is of that of the mint-master and apothecary Michael Aschenbrenner (1549-1605); the second is that of his wife Christiana. His is dated 1588 and bears the monogram "MCB." These are the oldest known Berlin bookplates and Michael's is the oldest bookplate of a German pharmacist. I. Second edition (1st ed.: 1541) of this extremely important and early collection of alchemical writings. The identity of Geber with the eighth-century alchemist Jabir ibn Hayyan is still a matter of dispute.

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.

(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. <br><br>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.

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. <br><br>"This magnificent folio volume is one of the finest of all anatomical treatises."
