Bible. Latin. Vulgate & Zurich. 1545.
Lutetiae: Ex Officina Roberti Stephani 8vo (20.5 cm; 8"). [12], 156, 172, 116, 180, 128, [40] ff.. 1545 Robert Estienne's second 8vo edition of the Bible: It prints in parallel columns the Vulgate and the Zurich Latin versions and marks the first time the two appeared together. Additionally. this is the first time Estienne printed the Zurich, the text being taken from the Froschauer 1543 printing that was the first printing ever of that version. According to Darlow and Moule, Estienne was more than the 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 end of the New Testament; the inner margin contains subject headings, references, and variants, while the outer margin contains the above-mentioned notes. => This copy lightly ruled in red. Binding: 17th-century speckled calf, gilt spine extra, plain boards; all edges gilt. Provenance: Mid-20th-century bookplate in Russian and English of Boris Alexandrovitch Chroustchoff.

Giustiniani, Bernardo:
Vinegia (Venedig): Bernadino Bindoni Milanese 1545 219 römisch num. Blatt, 1 weißes Blatt. Flexibles Ganzpergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel, Klein-8°, 16 x 11 cm. (Einband etwas berieben, fleckig und wellig, Bindebänder fehlen, Vorsätze auf Spiegeln fehlen, Schrift auf Titel und unter Kolophon, einige Blätter mit dezentem Feuchtigkeitsrand, sonst innen sauber und erstaunlich frisch) Bernardo Giustiniani (1408 - 1489) war venezianischer Adliger und Diplomat und wurde um 1485 Mitglied im Rat der Zehn. Seine Reden und Briefe wurden 1492 publiziert. Berühmt wurde er durch seine Geschichte Venedigs \"De origine urbis Venetiarum rebusque ab ipsa gestis historia\", die ebenfalls 1492 erschien. Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist die erste Übersetzung ins Italienische durch Lodovico Domenichi (Piacenza 1515 - 1564 Pisa). Der bedeutende Drucker Bernardino Bindoni druckte zahlreiche Texte für die italienischen Humanisten, sein Druckerzeichen auf der Titelei zeigt eine Palme und drei nackte Kinder. Die gedruckten Initialen zu Beginn der 15 Abschnitte des Buches zeigen teilweise ebenfalls Kinder, ähnlich den Kinderinitialen von Holbein. Der Druck ist gleichmäßig und schön. Besondere Bedeutung bekommt das vorliegende Exemplar durch seine Provenienz: Bellisario Bulgarini war Dichter und Gelehrter in Siena (1539 - 1619) und Mitglied der dortigen \"Accademia degli Intronati\" und der Akademie von Venedig. Unter dem Kolophon hat sich Bulgarini mit der zweizeiligen Inschrift in brauner Tinte verewigt: \"Di Bellisario Bulgarini. etc. / Lode à Dio ora, e sempre. -\" und auf der Tit … [Click Below for Full Description]

PATRIZI, Francesco
Aldus, Venice, 1545. ON THE ESSENCE OF HUMANISM FIRST EDITION thus. 8vo. ff. 278 (iv). Italic letter. Woodcut Aldine device to title page and verso of last, capital spaces with guide letters. Light age yellowing, blank outer margins of D3 and D4 re-margined (before printing). A very good copy, crisp and clean, in C18th Italian half calf over patterned paper boards, some worming to covers, all edges red. First edition of Patrizi’s Discorsi translated from the Latin by Giovanni Fabrini. A selection of "discourses", divided into nine books, the work covers a wide range of subjects including the principles of statecraft, the meaning of life (particularly the nature of virtue, health, honest pleasures and wealth), literature and the law. Patrizi, detached from the reigning debate that focused on the difficult relationships between the Church and the Empire, proposed a society based on the humanistic conception of autonomous man, freed from the ties of hierarchical power. Francesco Patrizi (1413-1492) writer, politician and humanist, was appointed bishop of Gaeta by Pope Pio II in 1460. Involved in the Sienese conspiracy in 1456, he was forced into exile in Verona, where he came into contact with various humanists, including the circle of Antonio Brognanigo. He wrote in Latin, being translated into Italian only 40 years later, by Aldus. The present work, in the Tuscan vernacular edited by the humanist Giovanni Fabrini, was widely read and won acclaim for its social and political realism in its discussion of new humanistic ideas. He is also known for his influential political trac … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Second edition (first published in 1543) of this collection of Venetian voyages to the Near and Middle East, edited by Antonio Manuzio, son of Aldus.

This volume contains voyages by Giosafat Barbaro (Tana in 1436, Persia 1471), Ambrogio Contarini (Persia 1473-77), and Luigi Roncinotto (Ethiopia 1532, Persia and India in 1529).

RUPERTUS TUITIENSIS, (Rupert de Deutz)
Apud Ambrosium Girault, sub pellicano in via Iacobea, Paris, 1545. Small 8vo. ff. [16], 247. Lacking final blank leaf. 20 Woodcut illustrations depicting imagery from the "Apocalypse of John" accompany the text. Occasional woodcut decorative initials are also present. The title displays Ambroise Girault’s woodcut printer’s device. A clipped area (1.7 x 6 cm) in the upper outer margin of the title page is carefully restored using matching period paper (difficult to notice at first glance). The title is also marked with the addition of red hand-ruled panel lines, well executed, (perhaps done at an early date) imitating a style sometimes seen in 17th century English Bibles and prayer books. Interior contains occasional spots of foxing; the title shows some scattered foxing; a couple of words of extremely faint marginalia are present in the outer margin of the third leaf and p. 107 (Oiii). Bound in full modern off-white vellum over boards after an early style. Apparently at least 5 or 6 printers/publishers shared in the production of this edition; therefore several variations of the imprint and the title page exist. The colophon reads: Gulielmus Thibout imprimebat Parisiis in via vulgo dicta boni putei, sub insigni quinque speculorum, anno domini, M.D.X.LV. Mense Septembris. Rupert de Deutz (c. 1075 – c.1129) was an influential Benedictine theologian who later in life became Abbot of Deutz Abby in Cologne. He wrote many works of Biblical exegesis.

Bound in 18th c. stiff vellum, title label on spine. Faint marginal waterstain to final leaves; leaf with printer's mark dusty; minor repaired tear to folio 27; otherwise a very good tall copy. A tall copy of the first edition, first issue 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.

Literatur: Bartsch 103; Pauli 101, I-II, vor der dritten waagerechten Strichlage in der unteren Fläche der linken Säule. - Sehr guter Abdruck. Provenienz: Sammlung R. Peltzer, Köln, Lugt 2231.. Hans Sebald Beham arbeitete gemeinsam mit seinem jüngeren Bruder Barthel Beham (um 1502 - 1540) in der Werkstatt von A. Dürer (1471-1528) als Maler, Kupferstecher und Zeichner. Nachdem Beham sich 1524 gemeinsam mit seinem Bruder der christlich reformatorischen Bewegung der Täufer angeschlossen hatte, wurde er 1525 inhaftiert und wegen Ketzerei der Stadt verwiesen. Auch nach seiner Rückkehr 1528 nach Nürnberg wurde er im darauffolgenden Jahr erneut wegen angeblich anstößigen Verhaltens aus der Stadt verbannt und ging nach München. Nach seiner Umsiedelung um 1532 nach Frankfurt am Main fertigte er zahlreiche Zeichnungen für Holzschnitte (Bibeln und Chroniken) und machte sich einen Namen als Kupferstecher.

SFORTUNATI, Giovanni (XVI. sec.). -
Venezia, Nicolini da Sabio, 1545.In - 4. Legatura coeva in pergamena molle; lievi tracce d?uso e qualche macchia. Con numerose formule aritmetiche, calcoli e diagrammi nei margini. 129, (1 bianco) ff.; diverse antiche annotazioni sui primi due fogli bianchi e antica nota di possesso nel margine inferiore del frontespizio; qualche macchiolina ma buon esemplare marginoso conservato in una scatola in mezza pelle. Terza edizione (con collazione identica alle due precedenti del 1534 e 1544), del celebre testo di aritmetica mercantile. Nell?introduzione il matematico senese Sfortunati cita e loda Pacioli, Calandri, Borghi e Feliciano, sottolineando tuttavia i miglioramenti apportati nel suo trattato. Indubbiamente l?opera ebbe un notevole successo e venne molto utilizzata da mercanti e uomini d?affari del tempo. Riccardi II, 453: «Lo Sfortunati, il cui nome figura nella famosa questione fra Cardano e Tartaglia, viene meritatamente noverato tra i migliori autori aritmetici del principio del sec. XVI». Cerboni 22. Sotheran I, 435. Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 174 - 177: «Sfortunati wrote his treatise along the lines followed by Borghi and Felicano... he was a popular writer, as the seven editions of this book go to prove. His work is fairly complete as to the operations with integers and fractions, and is satisfactory as to the examples illustrating the Italian business life of the 16th century?» Third edition of this influential work (first: 1534). Numerous arithmetical examples and various woodcut diagrams in the margins. Early owner?s name on lower blank margin of title and so … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tracce di antico ornamento dorato ai tagli. - Uno dei più interessanti Petrarca figurati del 500, in una copia che porta nelle sue pagine traccia delle polemiche che il testo ancora suscitava a metà del 500, con le sue accuse alla corruzione della corte pontificia (le censure ai versi della ?empia Babilonia?, gli altri versi di accusa manoscritti...). Bell'esemplare, con le raffinate incisioni in ottima stampa.

Light waterstaining to upper margins of a number of quires. Contemporary French calf with eight small fleurons and gilt ornamental centrepiece.

Italian philosopher. Joined Franciscans before 1482. Perhaps studied at Padua in early years. Critical of Aristotelian-Averroistic doctrines. His De harmonia mundi combines Hermetic, Platonic and cabalistic ideas on astrology, musical theory, psychology and cosmology; depicts universe as a musical harmony governed by numerical laws. Familiar with the works of Ficino and Pico, although carefully avoided Ficino's magical interests ..." (Cambridge Hist. of Renaissance Philosophy, p. 821)."... the main theme of the De Harmonia ... is the generative process that from the unchanging 'lone' Monad leads to the multiplicity of things, and the reverse process which takes these things back to their unique eternal 'root'... F. Giorgio exalts divine creation that has moulded the world according to the 'Vitruvian' norms of the most perfect architecture and the sublimest music but he cannot and doesn't want to ignore the fact that evil has always crept into the world ...

Giustiniani, Bernardo:
Vinegia (Venedig): Bernadino Bindoni Milanese 1545. 219 römisch num. Blatt, 1 weißes Blatt. Flexibles Ganzpergament der Zeit mit handschriftlichem Rückentitel, Klein-8°, 16 x 11 cm.. (Einband etwas berieben, fleckig und wellig, Bindebänder fehlen, Vorsätze auf Spiegeln fehlen, Schrift auf Titel und unter Kolophon, einige Blätter mit dezentem Feuchtigkeitsrand, sonst innen sauber und erstaunlich frisch) Bernardo Giustiniani war venezianischer Adliger und Diplomat und wurde um 1485 Mitglied im Rat der Zehn. Seine Reden und Briefe wurden 1492 publiziert. Berühmt wurde er durch seine Geschichte Venedigs "De origine urbis Venetiarum rebusque ab ipsa gestis historia", die ebenfalls 1492 erschien. Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist die erste Übersetzung ins Italienische durch Lodovico Domenichi (Piacenza 1515 - 1564 Pisa). Der bedeutende Drucker Bernardino Bindoni druckte zahlreiche Texte für die italienischen Humanisten, sein Druckerzeichen auf der Titelei zeigt eine Palme und drei nackte Kinder. Die gedruckten Initialen zu Beginn der 15 Abschnitte des Buches zeigen teilweise ebenfalls Kinder, ähnlich den Kinderinitialen von Holbein. Der Druck ist gleichmäßig und schön. Besondere Bedeutung bekommt das vorliegende Exemplar durch seine Provenienz: Bellisario Bulgarini war Dichter und Gelehrter in Siena (1539 - 1619) und Mitglied der dortigen "Accademia degli Intronati" und der Akademie von Venedig. Unter dem Kolophon hat sich Bulgarini mit der zweizeiligen Inschrift in brauner Tinte verewigt: "Di Bellisario Bulgarini. etc. / Lode a Dio ora, e sempre. -" und auf der Titelei: "Di Bellisario … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basileae: Ex Officina Ioannis Oporini, March 1552; Tubingae: Per Ulrichum Morhardum, 1546; Parisiis: Apud Joannem Lodo[v]icum Tiletanum, 1545. Containing three Greek classics with their Latin translations, mostly on facing pages, this is an unusually well-preserved specimen of a seldom-seen early binding style. In addition to Aesop's well-known "Fables," composed in the 6th century B.C., the present volume contains Xenophon's "Cyropaedia" (an early 4th century B.C. idealized biography of Cyrus the Great) and the "Tablet" of Cebes (a moralistic consideration, in the Socratic manner, of the significance of human life, probably not by the 4th century Greek philosopher it is attributed to, but rather by a pseudonymous author of the 1st or 2nd century A.D.). All three of our editions are obscure, and it is instructive to imagine how they would have been purchased--no doubt in original sheets--from a stationer handling the products of presses from Switzerland, Germany, and France and then assembled, perhaps by a university scholar, to provide an anthology of works likely meant for language study. Wallet-style bindings were used in the 16th century on books that were either very luxurious or put to hard use. Elaborately decorated wallet bindings might be used to protect precious manuscripts, while plainer versions were commonly used to protect ledger or account books, which were frequently used in open-air settings and which could encounter very hard wear.

Antwerp: [Printed by Johannes Grapheus for] Heirs of Joannes Steels, 1545.Antwerp: [Printed by Johannes Grapheus for] Heirs of Joannes Steels, 1545. n. Hardcover. 171 x 114 mm (6 3/4 x 4 1/2"). [8], 300 leaves. Contemporary calf by the Pecking Crow Binder, covers with blind-ruled frame, oblique gilt fleur-de-lys cornerpieces, and the binder's signature gilt stamps--a hand clutching a spray of flowers, with a bird perched on top--at the center; raised bands, later but well-chosen endpapers, ink titling to fore edge (expertly rebacked in the style of the period, with simple blind and gilt decoration; corners neatly restored). Printer's device on title page. Front pastedown with later pasted-on manuscript note regarding the forgery; title page with contemporary ownership inscription of Fr[ater] Augustinus [illegible]; first and last page with shallow (and scarcely visible) blind stamp of the (now defunct) Theological Institute of Connecticut.

Covers a little marked and with minor staining (a narrow inner strip of upper board somewhat darkened and crackled because of rebacking), text printed on inferior stock (and so with overall faint browning), otherwise an excellent example with only insignificant defects, the carefully restored binding sound and pleasing, and the text fresh and clean.
