TEXEDA (or TEJEDA), Gaspar de.
Valladolid: Francisco Fernández de Cordova, 1546. First edition, extremely rare, of the first printed book on accounting in Spanish. "This rare Spanish arithmetic gives the fundamental processes with integers, fractions, and denominate numbers [numbers of units of measure], introduces some practical mensuration under the title 'De Geometria,' and gives a rather extended treatment of the business rules. It is interesting because of the treatment of Spanish and Arab (algoristic) notation" (Smith, p. 242). "Gaspar de Texeda considered the main objective of his book that anyone without a teacher could become an accountant, and he consolidated this aim throughout his book. He wanted his readers to be able to use mathematics in real life situations because he believed that mathematics could be used in many different situations, like dealing with wills, inheritances or commercial relations. He even pointed out the importance of arithmetic in real life by choosing as an example precisely the difficulties in currency conversions and conversions among different units for measuring magnitudes. This so, the aim of his work is that accountants could do their jobs right: calculate, keep their books and, above all, avoid being misled due to any lack of mathematical knowledge. Therefore, future accountants are the intended audience of his book" (Madrid et al., p. 7). The need for a book like this derived from the political context of sixteenth-century Spain. The government wished to maintain a strict monitoring of trade to control resources (such as precious metals) that were being extract … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary limp vellum, outer corner of front panel skillfully repaired, short inscription on the first title page inked out, a genuine and attractive copy.RARE FIRST EDITION of the first printed important chronicle of what today are the South Tyrol and Trentino regions, especially under its prince bishops Georg Neideck (1505-1514), Bernardo Cles (1514-1539), and Cristoforo Madruzzo (1539-1567). The work is dedicated to Aliprando Cles, nephew of the bishop, and was translated into Italian by Carlo Zanetti in 1648 (cf. A. Chemelli, Trento e le sue Stampe. Il Seicento, Trento, 1983, pp. 6-8).In June 1511 the two principalities of Trento and Brixen had received the status of ''perpetual confederate'' states among Austrian possessions. The peace of 1516 with the Republic of Venice, however, reduced the principality to a discontinuous enclave between large Habsburg possessions.

Hans Sebald BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
Bulino, 1546, monogrammato in lastra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. The judgement of Paris; Paris seated at left; the three goddesses at r, with Venus accepting the apple; Mercury with the caduceus standing behind behind Paris and in front of rocks; Cupid flying off at upper right. Engraving, 1546, signed with monogram on a tablet at upper left. Lettered 'IUDICIUM PARIDIS' along lower edge. A very good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Molto probabilmente il prototipo è da individuarsi nel ritratto anonimo, attribuito ad Enea Vico da Weigel e Nagler, e datato 1545.

Herman, Nikolaus.
[N�rnberg: Wolfgang Heussler, 1546]. [Nürnberg: Wolfgang Heussler, 1546]. 4to (20 cm, 7.75''). [8] ff. This very successful pamphlet prints a letter to Christians from Christ — "signed" by him (in type, of course) at the end. Nikolaus Herman (1500–61) was a Lutheran teacher and cantor at the Latin School of Joachimsthal, and his Mandat joined the numerous Protestant lay works published in the wake of the Reformation, advertising the new doctrines in an accessible format. In this letter, written in the first person, Christ explains how he had defeated the devil, and thus lost his life; albeit his teachings have become distorted due to centuries of misinterpretations, leading to the devil's comeback, Christ is now ready to rescue his people again through the true faith and spirituality he had left as legacy. First printed in 1524 and not again until 1546, this is one of three editions printed in the latter year. As will surprise no one, the text is in gothic type, with shouldernotes, and there are two woodcuts: one on the title-page is of Christ preaching indoors to a large assembly of kneeling men, and on that page's verso is one of a minister in the pulpit preaching to a congregation of men and women, some seated, others standing. Provenance: Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel (“AHA”) at rear.

1546. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. EXCEEDINGLY RARE & DESIRABLE / See photos "The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God" - Euclid "The first complete edition of Euclid's works" (Zeitlinger) An incredible folio edition of Euclid's "Elementorum Geometricorum." This edition contains the whole of Euclid's works: · "The Elements" - considered the most successful texts on mathematics and logic · "Data" - essay on advanced geometric propositions · "Phaenomena" - treatise on spherical astronomy · "Catoptirca" - treatise on mathematical theory of mirrors · "Opusculum de levi, ponderosa" - a fragment of this work was discovered after the first edition of this work in 1537! The works of Euclid printed in Basil, was published by Johann Herwagen from 1533-1558, all of which were folio. Philip Melanchthon provided an introduction for the 1537 first edition and was retained for this second printing (often missing from many printings), however, this printing is formatted quite differently from the first. "from many copies this introduction has been removed by the clerical censor [...]. As there does not appear to be anything objectionable in the introduction itself, this action of the censor must have arisen from hostility to the writer of it." (Thomas-Standord 11). This edition of "Elements" was translated from Greek by Zamberti. [Attributes: First Edition]

"Il contenuto di questa notevolissima opera dell'insigne umanista si ricollega nel suo profilo esteriore a Vitruvio, anche nel numero dei libri. I primi tre trattano di tutto ciò che nell'antico maestro è compreso nel concetto di "firmitas", scelta del terreno, materiali da costruzione, fondazioni; i libri IV-V l'"utilitas", cioè le varie sorti di edifici secondo la loro destinazione; il libro VI la bellezza architettonica ("venustas"); i libri VII-IX la costruzione dei fabbricati (VII: templi, cioè chiese, VIII: gli edifici pubblici, IX: gli edifici privati); il libro X l'idraulica (che è trattata nel libro VIII di Vitruvio). L'architettura militare e di fortificazione, che ebbe in Italia un notevolissimo sviluppo ed esercitò molti influssi anche al di là dei suoi confini, manca completamente nell'Alberti..; le macchine, di cui Vitruvio tratta estesamente nel IX e X libro, formano presso il suo successore un'aggiunta al VI libro". Così Schlosser, pp. 121-122. "Edizione originale". Prima traduzione italiana del capolavoro dell'Alberti (1404-1472); è anche il primo trattato moderno di architettura in volgare. L'editio princeps dell'originale latino "De re aedificatoria", dedicata a Lorenzo il Magnifico, fu pubblicata soltanto nel 1485, dopo la sua morte. Cfr. Fowler,5 - Cicognara,373.

It is one of the earliest works printed by Christoffel Plantin, published in the year he opened his printing office. Piere Belon (ca. 1518-1564), famous for his works on ornithology, was attached as naturalist to the French embassy to the Ottoman Empire, aimed at convincing Suleiman the Magnificent to join forces against Charles V and led by Gabriel de Luetz (Luez, Luels) d'Aramont. The envoy sailed for Venice in December 1546 and proceeded to Croatia. Here Luetz continued overland to Adrianople (Edirne), while Belon sailed for Istanbul by way of Greece, visiting Lemnos, Macedonia, Crete and Kavala en route. He reached Istanbul in August 1547, explored the city and continued to Alexandria, while Luetz accompanied Suleiman to Persia. Belon's journey continued to Cairo, Mount Sinai, Jerusalem, Damascus, Baalbek, Aleppo, and to Turkey again.Unlike many contemporary travel writers, Belon does not elaborate on extraordinary travel adventures, but rather limits himself to detailed observations on mammals, fish, snakes, birds, plants, trees and the manners and customs of the peoples he encountered, only commenting on what he had witnessed himself.

Países Bajos, 1546. La lectura que de los ritos paganos se hizo desde el cristianismo dio origen a las distintas versiones del Sabbath, la asamblea de brujas reunidas para celebrar y adorar al demonio. Pese al tono réprobo de la representación cristiana, es fácil observar las huellas de los antiguos credos grecorromanos: el desorden festivo y orgiástico de las bacanales, el escenario agreste, la presencia tutelar de la Luna. Pero sin duda el nexo más evidente con antiguos rituales grecorromanos, es la presencia de Pan, aquel dios cornudo mitad humano pero con pies de cabra que bajo la lupa de la Iglesia se ha transfigurado en la imagen misma de Satán.   BARTHOLOMEUS SPRANGER (1546-1611) (a partir de) ANÓNIMO (grabado) Título: Description de l?Assemblée des sorciers qu?on appelle Sabbat Estampa de la obra de Laurent Bordelon: L?Histoire des imaginations extravagantes de Monsieur Oufle Amsterdam, 1710.

Dioscoride
Florence: 1546. * Livre rarissime contenant l'œuvre médicale complète de Pedanius Dioscoride (25-90), médecin, pharmacologue et botaniste grec dont l'œuvre fut la source principale de remèdes jusqu'au 16ème siècle. Le titre de son œuvre est "À propos de la matière médicale", écrite à l'origine en grec ancien (Περὶ ὕλης ἰατρικῆς), puis transmise en arabe, en latin (De materia medica) et, par la suite, en plusieurs langues européennes, avant d'être approfondie par Pierandrea Mattioli (1501-1577). Édition magnifique imprimée à Florence en 1546 par Bernardo di Giunti (ou Giunta), de la célèbre famille d'imprimeurs italiens de la Renaissance. Notre exemplaire, dont il manque la page de titre, commence avec la dédicace au duc Cosme de Médicis et il porte la mention suivante, au début du 1er Livre, ce qui nous a permis d'identifier son traducteur: " LIBRO DI PEDACIO DIOSCORIDE Anazarbeo della Materia Medicinale : Tradotto in lingua Fiorentina da M. Marcantonio Montigiano da San Gimignano, Medico Fiorentino." Pour le reste bien complet de tout le texte, avec la présence du colophon, à la fin, avec la date de 1546 : " Stampato in Fiorenza, appresso Bernardo di Giunti: di Genaio. M D XL VI.

TARTAGLIA, NICCOLÒ
Venice: Venturino Ruffinelli, 1546. First edition. FIRST EDITION OF TARTAGLIA'S MOST IMPORTANT CONTRIBUTION TO MATHEMATICS, INCLUDING HIS RULE FOR SOLVING CUBIC EQUATIONS. "The 'mathematical practitioners' of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries seem to be acquiring an important role in histories which deal with the origins of the Scientific Revolution... Those who are fascinated by questions of origins in the history of science and technology find themselves driven more and more to investigate the sudden appearance, as it still seems, of this relatively large and active group. Among the first generation of these practitioners, few made a greater mark than Niccoló Tartaglia, whose works were translated into all the major European tongues, and whose influence in applied mathematics continued perceptibly for more than a century" (A.G. Keller, "Mathematics at Work: Niccoló Tartaglia, Quesiti et Inventioni Diverse"). Tartaglia's Quesiti, includes, without exaggeration, what can be considered the first real advance in algebra since antiquity. It "contains his most important mathematical accomplishment: the independent discovery of the rule for solving third-degree (cubic) equations, a rule first formulated but left unpublished by Sciopione de Ferro in the first or second decade of the sixteenth century. Tartaglia re-solved the problem in 1535 but kept the details a secret for many years, using his knowledge to gain advantage in the frequent public disputations held between scholars in his era. He finally revealed the rule to Girolamo Cardano in 1539 after Cardano swore to kee … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hans Sebald BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
Bulino, 1546, monogrammato in lastra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. The judgement of Paris; Paris seated at left; the three goddesses at r, with Venus accepting the apple; Mercury with the caduceus standing behind behind Paris and in front of rocks; Cupid flying off at upper right. Engraving, 1546, signed with monogram on a tablet at upper left. Lettered 'IUDICIUM PARIDIS' along lower edge. A very good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions.

L'opera raffigura l'episodio narrato dalla Genesi; Giuseppe, figlio di Giacobbe, era schiavo di Putifarre, capo delle guardie del faraone. La moglie di questi lo afferrò per la veste e lo costrinse a far l'amore con lei; scoperto da Putifarre, Giuseppe fu gettato in prigione.

Giulio BONASONE (Bologna circa 1500 - Roma circa 1580)
"Bulino, 1546, datato in lastra, in numeri romani, sotto l'iscrizione, e firmata in basso a destra IULIO.B:F. Sotto il ritratto, corre l'iscrizione Quantum in natura ars naturaque possit in arte/Hic qui naturae par fuit arte docet". Esemplare nel secondo stato finale. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, qualche sporadica fioritura, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta del celebre profilo di Michelangelo, ritratto all'età di 72 anni, poco prima di essere nominato architetto capo della fabbrica di S.Pietro, il primo gennaio 1547. Il profilo sarà utilizzato sette anni dopo nella prima edizione della vita di Michelangelo di Ascanio Condivi. Molto probabilmente il prototipo è da individuarsi nel ritratto anonimo, attribuito ad Enea Vico da Weigel e Nagler, e datato 1545. L'iscrizione latina recita «Quanto l'arte può fare in natura e la natura nell'arte, costui che nell'arte eguaglia la natura insegna"". Della prova del Bonasone, Oberhuber per primo ha segnalato l'esistenza di un primo stato "ante litteram", non descritto in alcun repertorio, conservato presso il British Museum."

PINCIO, Giano Pirro.
In aedibus Venturini Rufinelli, Mantuae, 1546. L’umanista mantovano Pincio fu storico di corte del vescovo Cles e nel 1539 fu nominato poeta vincitore dall’imperatore Carlo V. L’autore dedica il suo lavoro ad Aliprando, nipote di Bernardo, e in particolare sono degne di nota le pagine in cui descrive la magnifica biblioteca assemblata dal vescovo nel palazzo vescovile di Trento. Pincio aggiunge alla cronaca De appellatione et transitu Alpium, una topografia delle Alpi tirolesi e una guida per le vie del passo alpino che contiene il primo riferimento in stampa alla Val di Non, citando il Lago di Tovel come la fonte del gustoso salmerino che si può pescare nel lago. Una traduzione italiana dell’opera fu pubblicata nel 1648. L’ESEMPLARE E’ MANCANTE DELLA SEGNATURA F C.C. 41-8. LA SEGNATURA F E’ STATA INTEGRATA CON IL TESTO FOTOCOPIATO E APPLICATO SU CARTA ANTICA. Formato: 16, [8], 104, [2] c., 2° (32 cm), perg. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo, dorso rifatto, tracce di umido e diffuse gore d'acqua che non compromettono la leggibilità del testo, ex libris, etichetta alla controguardia, numerose note marginali e firma al frontespizio a penna di mano antica. Legatura debole in corrispondenza della cerniera anteriore.
