      apud Much. Isingrinium,, Basileae, 1546 - Cm. 34, pp. (2) 618 (72).

Solida leg. ottocentesca in mezza pergamena con punte, dorso a nervi con titoli in oro su doppio tassello. Un antico intervento di restauro a rimarginare il bordo inferiore delle prime carte (per pochi cm. e lontano dal testo) per la presenza di una traccia d'umido che via via scompare completamente per ripresentarsi solo nelle ultime carte. Bell'esemplare, fresco e marginoso, elegantemente impresso. Seconda edizione che segue l'originale del 1534 di questa celebre opera commissionata da Enrico VII allo storico urbinate, il quale impiegò ben 28 per portarla a termine. Cfr.

This volume is comprised "of De Ortu et Causis Subterraneorum, in five 'books,' the first work on physical geology; De Natura Eorum quae Effluunt ex Terra, in four 'books,' on subterranean waters and gases; De Natura Fossilium, in ten 'books,' the first systematic mineralogy; De Veteribus et Novis Metallis, in two 'books,' devoted largely to the history of metals and topographical mineralogy; a new edition of Bermannus was included; and finally Rerum Metallicarum Interpretatio, a glossary of Latin and German mineralogical and metallurgical terms...No appreciation of Agricola's contribution to science can be gained without a study of De Ortu et Causis and De Natura Fossilium, for while De Re Metallica is of much more general interest, it contains but incidental reference to Geology and Mineralogy."-Hoover. Very good copy, preserved in a box. Minor dampstaining to outer upper corners in second half of book. Final leaf with two careful and small paper repairs to fore-edges.

        Chroniques De Espaya Fins Aci No Divulgades: Que Tracta D'ls Nobles e Invictissims Reys Dels Gots: y Gestes De Aquells: y Dels Contes De Barcelona e Reys De Aragó : Ab Moltes Coses Dignes De Perpetua Memoria.

      Carlos Amorós, Barcelona 1546 - Falto de portada original, con portada facsimilada - falto de 3 hojas preliminares - 257 folios a doble columna y una hoja con el colofón adornado con la marca tipográfica. El primer folio decorado con una gran orla, está muy restaurado de época y a mano. Texto en gótico a dos columnas con todas las letras capitulares adornadas con grabado xilográfico. Folio 130 margen inferior con una restauración de 3 x 1 cm. Bello epigrama en el folio 214. Muy buena restauración de un pequeño desgarro en el folio 234. Últimos folios con una mancha que no desmejora el texto. 8 bonitos grabados xilográficos entre el texto. Muy elegante encuadernación del siglo XX en fina piel decorada en seco. Con escudo catalán en mosaico en la tapa superior. Lomera con nervios y florones. Palau 43729, dice: .la mayoría de los ejemplares se presentan incompletos o en mal estado, y como el texto es interesante y jamás se ha reproducido, los coleccionistas de obras catalanas sustituyen las faltas con hojas manuscritas o en facsímil. =Pere Miquel Carbonell i de Solsona (Barcelona, 1434 - 1517) fue un historiador, notario, humanista y poeta catalán. En 1458 fue nombrado notario público por el rey Alfonso V de Aragón, cargo que fue ratificado por Juan II de Aragón. Este último monarca le nombró en 1476 archivero y escriba real. Fue un entusiasta de los cambios que se produjeron en la cultura catalana a partir de mediados del siglo XV lo que le llevó a rechazar en parte la anterior tradición cultural. Era un gran aficionado a las letras clásicas y consiguió reunir una destacada biblioteca. Su obra más extensa es Chròniques de Espanya que empezó a redactar en 1495. Está basada en documentación del archivo real y fue concebida con un criterio literario. = Cròniques d’Espanya (o de Catalunya), una història de la Corona d’Aragó des dels orígens fins a l’època de l’autor. El primer llibre s’obre amb un pròleg i narra els orígens del país, la història dels reis gots, els de Castella-Lleó, Navarra i Aragó, comtes de Barcelona i comtes-reis fins a Alfons III. Els llibres II-VI contenen els regnats de Pere III, els seus fills, el Magnànim i Joan II (guerra civil), i textos diversos. L’autor es nega a historiar el regnat del seu coetani Ferran II, que queda en mans dels cronistes àulics de formació humanística. L’estructura de les Cròniques és de vegades caòtica i presenta salts temporals, atribuïbles en part a l’estat de l’exemplar que serví de base a l’edició, però també a la poca cura dels impressors.

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?".

        Com[m]entarius de rebus in India apud Dium gestis anno salutis nostrae M. D. XLVI.Coimbra, (colophon: produced by João de Barreira and João Álvares, printers to the King), 1548. Small 4to (18.5×13.5 cm). With woodcut arms of King João III of Portugal on title-page, and 2 woodcut decorated initials (2 series). Set in Peter Schoeffer the younger's Parangon (121 mm/20 line or 18 point) italic and with an extremely early use of Claude Garamont's Canon roman (not previously recorded before 1549). Gold-tooled red sheepskin (18th-century refurbished in the 19th century), marbled endpapers.

      Palau 328839; USTC 343307. First edition, in Latin, of a report on the Portuguese in India and especially on their defeat of the Muslim Gujarat Sultanate at the second siege of Diu in 1546, written by the Portuguese humanist Diogo de Teive (ca. 1514-ca. 1570). The book opens with a 4-page dedication to King João III, dated 1 March 1548, and two verses (each occupying a full page), followed by the main text, dated August 1547.The Portuguese reached India in 1498 (and regarded it as their property under the 1494 Treaty of Tordesillas concluded with Spain) but in the early years they met stiff resistance from the Gujarats, supported at various times by the Mamluks and the Ottoman Empire. Although they never penetrated far inland, the Portuguese gradually came to dominate the coastal areas, in particular expanding their territory and power in northwest India from 1509 to 1546. In 1546 the Gujarats under Khoja (or Khwaja) Sofar tried to retake Diu, lost in 1509, but after a seven-month siege they were routed by the Portuguese fleet under João de Castro. This established the European colonial power and the European spice trade in India (including what is now Pakistan), where Portugal was to be followed by the Dutch and especially England before most of India finally gained its independence in 1947. Small parts, including Diu, remained in Portuguese hands until 1961.Trimmed, shaving an accent on the title-page and the running head on a few pages, but otherwise in good condition, with some minor defects. The binding has several worm holes and the spine is damaged and partly restored. A contemporary account of the Portuguese defeat of the Muslim forces in Gujarat in 1546.

Marcus April. 4." 5,3 x 7,5 cm.*Pauli No. 178 III (of 3). Bartsch VIII, No. 155. Hollstein, German, III 98. Third state (of 3). Plate 2 from a series of 10 numbered engravings: "Das Bauernfest oder die zwölf Monate" (The peasants' feast or the 12 months). Fine engraving of dancing farmers at a peasant festival, representing the months March and April. Beham's genre prints belong to the most charming depictions of German country life and costumes in the 16th century. The German printmaker and painter Sebald Beham, from 1532, seems to have lived mostly in Frankfurt. Known as one of the so-called "Kleinmeister/Little Masters" from the small scale of his engravings. He was identified as Sebald Beham although since the 17th century he was mistakenly called Hans Sebald Beham on the basis of his monogram HSP or later HSB. - Left upper corner repaired, affecting the plate-number '2'; slightly foxed; thread margins.[(5444)]

Bei capilettera figurati con putti incisi in xilografia. Restauri alla legatura, alcune arrossature interne. Buon esemplare. Prima edizione, rara, dell'opera principale del filologo (fu commentatore di Aristofane e di Lucano), umanista e storiografo Lambertus Hortensius (Montfoort, 1500 ca-Naarden, 1574). L'opera narra la lotta tra la città di Utrecht e il suo ultimo Principe-Vescovo, Heinrich von Rhein, negli anni dal 1524 al 1527, l'intervento del Duca Carlo di Gelderland e la conseguente occupazione della città, il ritorno al potere del Vescovo Heinrich e, infine, la cessione dei suoi poteri temporali all'Imperatore Carlo V, nell'ottobre del 1528. La storia dell'Hortensius, fondata sulla sua esperienze di testimone oculare degli eventi, è di notevole valore critico e si avvale di una larga messe di documenti che egli trasse dall'archivio del Capitolo della Cattedrale di Utrecht (molti di tali documenti sono noti solo tramite il presente libro).

Première édition. Ornée de nombreuses lettrines historiées. Marque de l'imprimeur sur la page de titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Absent aux catalogues français, mais présent dans les catalogues anglais, 2 exemplaires en Allemagne à la GBV (union des catalogues de l'Allemagne du nord) et un à l'université de Munich. L'édition de 1544 parue à Paris ne comporte pas les notes d'Erasme et l'ensemble des auteurs réunis dans cette édition, l'édition parisienne sera rééditée en 1551 à Lyon chez Gryphium, mais non celle de Froben , elle reproduit l'édition de Egnazio seulement. La première édition de Suetone date de 1479. Pleine Basane XVIIe siècle , dos à nerfs orné (pièce de titre en maroquin rouge). Ensemble frotté et épidermé sur les plats (nombreuses estafilades) , coiffe supérieure manquante , 2 coins supérieurs cassés et manquants. Bel état intérieur, avec une mouillure pâle courant sur une vingtaine de pages en haut au milieu (p. 29 à 45.). Plusieurs erreurs de pagination, même nombre répété, saut d'un feuillet sans manque. L'intérêt évident de cette édition a été de rassembler l'ensemble des écrivains de l'antiquité qui ont écrit sur l'empire romain, non seulement Suetone, mais également de plus rares écrivains tel Dion Cassius (traduit par Merula), Herodianus (traduit par Angelo Ambrogini Poliziano), Spartianus ou Lampidius, Velleius Paterculus, Vulcatius Gallicanus, Amianus Marcellinus. Deux commentateurs : Erasme (mort en 1536) et Giovanni Battista Egnazio (1478-1553). Froben (1501-1563) est l'un des grands éditeurs de la renaissance et le digne successeur de Johann Froben, le premier de la dynastie qui établit son imprimerie à Bâle en 1491 , c'est avec lui que fut lié et travailla Erasme et Jerôme Froben ne fit qu'en recueillir les fruits. Cette édition est l'alliance de Froben et Nikolaus Epicopius, son beau frère. Note manuscrite gothique : 'pour le couvent de l'observance des Lyons ' et pagination manuscrite des auteurs.

      Frankfurt/Main, Christian Egenolph, (1546). - 4to. (16), 265, (1) pp. With a large woodcut on the title-page showing a gardener at work with his tools, and about 800 woodcut illustrations in the text. About 700 show trees, fruit, edible and medicinal plants, while the rest show insects, a tick, coral, shells, various sea and land animals and a view of a pond with plants and birds. It includes a two-headed snake, dragon, griffin, and a few other mythical creatures. With all woodcuts coloured by a contemporary hand. Contemporary pigskin over wooden boards, richly blind-tooled in a panel design with two rolls (one alternating heads and coats of arms, the other with standing figures), a large acorn and other stamps; brass clasps and catch-plates with engraved decoration. Rare first dated edition of an extensively illustrated early herbal in contemporary hand-colour, with the title and most of the plant and animal names in Latin and German. The title-page is followed by a 13-page index of the Latin and German names. About 200 of the woodcuts are about half-page, while the last six pages show 16 small animal woodcuts per page. The Folger Library notes that F. W. E. Roth attributes this herbal to Adam Lonicer (1528-86) of Marburg and Frankfurt, who married Egenolph's daughter and became a partner in the firm after Egenolph died in 1555. The firm published herbals and related works under his name beginning in 1551. Egenolph published all three editions of the present herbal. VD 16 lists the undated one as ca. 1545 (citing only the Wellcome Library copy), which would make the present 1546 edition the second. Another appeared in 1552. Egenolph's successors were to become famous not only as printers but also as one of the largest and most important early typefoundries. The present book uses Roman and Italic for the Latin, but Fraktur and Schwabacher for the German, giving a good overview of the firm's stock of type at this early date. - This copy has early owner's inscriptions by the Nuremberg pharmacist Georg Volland (d. 1631) in Latin at the foot of the title-page and in Greek on the facing endleaf. - Binding worn; some browning and stains to interior, especially to the first and last leaves.

"In his Epitome philosophiae moralis Melanchthon treats first the relation of philosophy to the law of God and the Gospel. Moral philosophy, it is true, does not know anything of the promise of grace as revealed in the Gospel, but it is the development of the natural law implanted by God in the heart of man, and therefore representing a part of the divine law. The revealed law, necessitated because of sin, is distinguished from natural law only by its greater completeness and clearness. The fundamental order of moral life can be grasped also by reason; therefore the development of moral philosophy from natural principles must not be neglected. Melanchthon therefore made no sharp distinction between natural and revealed morals." (Wikipedia). Titel fingerfleckig. Die ersten 50 Blatt leicht fleckig am oberen Rand.

Heidelberg Philosophie, Theologie und Medizin; 1522 wurde er Schullehrer, Arzt und Alchemist bei Herzog Ludwig II. in Zweibrücken. 1532 erhielt er eine Stiftsherrenstelle am St. Fabianstift bei Hornbach, betreute die Bevölkerung medizinisch und trieb auf ausgedehnten Wanderungen botanische Studien. Seit 1538 war B. zusätzlich Prediger der Pfarrei in Hornbach, wurde jedoch im Zuge der Gegenreformation 1548 abgelöst. 1550/51 lebte er als Leibarzt bei Graf Philipp III. von Nassau-Saarbrücken und legte dort einen Botanischen Garten an. Die letzten Lebensjahre verbrachte er wieder in der Hornbacher Pfarrei. Bock, der mit Otto Brunfels und Konrad Gesner im Austausch stand, war der Lehrer von Jakob Theodor. Sein Hauptwerk ist das deutschsprachige New Kreütter Buch [...] (1539, seit der zweiten Auflage 1546 mit Holzschnitten illustriert). - Swieten, (1700 - 1772 ), studierte nach philosophischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Studien in Löwen bei dem bedeutendsten medizinischen Lehrer der damaligen Zeit, Herman Boerhaave in Leiden. Durch die Anstrengungen der Studienarbeit verfiel er in "Melancholie", aus der er sich durch Musik aufraffte; die drei Geigen in seinem Wappen künden von diesem Zusammenhang. Er wurde 1725 promoviert; mit der Ausdehnung seiner Praxis verbreitete sich sein Ruf als Arzt. Gleichzeitig war er selbst medizinischer Lehrer. Wegen seiner kath. Religionszugehörigkeit in Schwierigkeiten geraten, widmete er sich umso mehr der wissenschaftlichen Arbeit. Von 1742 bis 1772 erschien -- mehrfach übersetzt -- sein Hauptwerk: Commentaria in Hermanni Boerhaavii aphorismos de cognoscendis et curandis morbis. Kaiserin Maria Theresia wurde durch ihre Berater auf ihn aufmerksam und betraute ihn mit der ärztlichen Obsorge des schwierigen Wochenbetts ihrer Schwester Maria Anna in Brüssel. Obgleich der Ausgang tragisch war, hatte die Kaiserin zu Swieten wegen seiner Umsicht und seiner Kenntnisse Vertrauen gefaßt und berief ihn 1745 als Leibarzt nach Wien; gleichzeitig wurde er Präfekt der Hofbibliothek. ... Als Präfekt der Hofbibliothek ergänzte er energisch die Bestände (Übernahme der alten Wiener Universitätsbibliothek), organisierte die Erschließung neu, verbesserte die Benutzung und rettete durch geeignete Baumaßnahmen den baufällig gewordenen Prunksaal. ... Ein botanischer Garten und ein chemisches Laboratorium wurden eingerichtet... 1759 wurde er an die Spitze der Bücherrevisionskommission berufen und lockerte die Zensurbestimmungen, auch für Publikationen protestantischer Herkunft; ebenso arbeitete er an der Schulreform mit. Er war einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der kath. Aufklärung jansenistischer Prägung in den habsburgischen Erbländern. (DBE) - As one of the most noted botanic specialists of the early 16th century, Bock started to change the medieval botany to the modern scientific worldview by arranging plants by their relation or resemblance. Gerard van Swieten became the personal physician of the Austrian Empress Mari Theresia in 1745. In this position he implemented a transformation of the Austrian health service and medical university education. He founded a botanical garden, a chemical laboratory and introduced clinical instruction within the medical studies. Here a book from his personal library.

        LE OCCORRENZE HVMANE

      Vinegia: In Casa de' Figlivoli di Aldo, 1546. FIRST EDITION . Hardcover. 146 x 95 mm (5 3/4 x 3 3/4"). 12 p.l., 5-147, [1] pp., [2] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Appealing old vellum over stiff boards, upper cover inscribed with a small "R" in ink, yapp edges, raised bands, ink titling on spine. Aldine anchor on first and last leaves. Text in an italic face. Front pastedown with engraved bookplate of classical scholar Thomas Gaisford (1779-1855); front flyleaf with ink ownership inscription of Patrizio Francesco Righi dated 1734 and with bookplate of Charles F. Roth tipped on; title page with an Italian signature dated London, 1657. Renouard 1546; Ahmanson-Murphy 311. Lower cover with half a dozen small brown spots of no consequence, occasional marginal foxing, faint dampstain to upper outer corner of a couple of gatherings, but really QUITE AN EXCELLENT COPY, the text especially fresh and clean, and in a pleasing unsophisticated binding with nothing approaching a significant defect. This is a series of 18 wide-ranging conversations regarding, among other things, beautiful women, their rarity, virtues, and so on. The characters in the conversations are generally fictitious, but a discussion of the nobility of cities and peoples is conducted by Aldus' patron, Marcus Musurus, and others. Renouard says this work formerly had a high reputation and doesn't deserve the neglect into which it had fallen, because it preserves many curious details of literary history in speaking of the learned men and great libraries of the time. Of special note in this regard is a discussion of the library at Fountainbleau, praised for its fine collection of Latin, Greek, and Hebrew books put together by François I. This is a rare book in the marketplace: in addition to the present volume, ABPC records just two copies at auction since 1975.

Basel: [Ex officina Joannis Oporini, 1546]. First separate edition of Lycophron’s Alexandra. Two parts in one folio volume (11 9/16 x 7 11/16 inches; 293 x 195 mm.).

Spine lettered in manuscript with four raised bands. From the library of Joseph von Lassberg. Two additional early ink inscriptions. Very minor worming in the lower margin of the last five leaves and to rear endpapers. Small marginal stain to Pp2 and Pp3. Housed in a custom quarter brown morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped. The only work of Greek poet Lycophron (b. ca. 320 B.C.) to survive. "When a young man he went to Alexandria and became one of the Pleiad of tragic poets. The only work of his to survive is the Alexandra, a dramatic monologue in 1,474 lines of iambic trimeters.in which the slave set to watch Alexandra (i.e. Cassandra) reports her prophecies to her father Priam, king of Troy. They concern the destruction of Troy and the crime of Ajax, the return of the Greeks and their fate, Aeneas’ arrival in Latium, the eventual struggles between Europe and Asia, and the rise of Roman power. These last passages, which concerned events of Lycophron’s own lifetime, raised doubts even in antiquity as to whether he could really be the author. The whole poem is written in an extremely obscure and allusive style" (The Concise Oxford Companion to Classical Literature). "The first separate edition (previously without the commentary of Tzetzes in Pindarus Aldi, 1513), superintended by Arn. Arlenius, who corrected the text.and added thereto the commentary of Tzetzes from a Bolognese MS." (Ebert). "This is a very curious edition, and contains a hundred notable things which are not in the Oxford edition of Lycophron, by Potter. Happy is the scholar who possesses this treasure of learning!’" (quoting Dr. Harwood in Dibdin, Greek and Latin Classics). Adams L2102. Dibdin, Greek and Latin Classics, II, pp. 208-209. Ebert 12537.

        Hypnerotomachie ou Discours du songe de Poliphile...

      Pour Iaques Keruer aux deux Cochetz, Rue S. Iaques 1546 FIRST EDITION THUS. Folio [vi] 157 [i]. Roman and Italic letter. Woodcut initials, title within engraved cartouche, between satyrs and "with terminal figures, cherubs, and scroll-work. Kerver's initials appear three times in the border, and at the foot are two turtles, a device of the printer, Louis Blaublom" (Harvard cit. infr.), additional device on verso of last. 13 full-page woodcuts, 181 in total. C16 Lyonese ex libris "Joann Baptae Palleron" on t.p., "Catherine De Seguin/ bonne fille" on verso of last, engraved armorial bookplate on front pastedown of Auguste Brölemann (1826-1904). Light age yellowing, t.p. and last a little browned, t.p. with a few ink spots, repaired tears to margin, no loss, a good, well-margined copy in C17 calf with panels double-ruled in gilt, spine in seven richly gilt comparments with raised bands, marbled endpapers, lacks label, a.e.r. FIRST of the FIRST FRENCH TRANSLATION of one of most famous illustrated books of the Italian Renaissance - the strangest if loveliest of earlier modern books; the Hypnerotomachia, ?a lovers struggle in a dream? is linguistically unique. Its extraordinary combination of Latin, Greek and Italian, probably invented for the work itself, was never spoken and never again attempted in print. The purpose of this allegorical humanistic text, much derived from Pliny, Ovid, Dante and Boccaccio, has been hotly debated, it is a very exotic confection dense with classical allusion, at one level about the secrets, pains and pleasures of a journey of love where reality and dreams combine, at another it is a sort of humanistic encyclopedia. Perhaps understandably for such a cutting edge volume its first apperance (1499) was not a commercial success and it was only the publication of the edition of 1545 that gave the work widespread popularity. This translation by Jean Martin a year later accrued even further renown for Poliphile, as well as emphasized the book's use to students of architecture, as Martin soon after translated Vitruvius and Alberti gaining a reputation for bringing antique architecture to bear upon the French style. Martin's translation contains reproductions of all earlier illustrations from the Aldine edition, with an additional fourteen woodcuts. "In general, the artists of the Kerver blocks seem to have regarded the Italian cuts as sketches to be reworked according to French techniques and taste, with shaded lines, elongated figures, and more lavish landscape and architectural detail. Fourteen subjects, all concerned with architecture, were added in the French edition. At least four distinct styles are represented in these French blocks...The work is frequently attributed to the elder Jean Cousin or Jean Gouon. The Goujon attribution is more presistent because of the emphasis on architecture and sculpture in the text and because of Goujon's association with Jean Martin....on the Vitruvius of 1547" (Harvard cit. infr.). Joannes Baptiste Palleron was a physician from Lyon who took his degree from the Faculty of Medicine at Montpellier in 1541. According to the Departmental Archives of the Gironde, Catherine De Seguin du Sejour (c. 1750s) was the daughter of Pierre-Roch Seguin du Sejour, lawyer and member of the Parliament of Toulouse.

Interior has some moderate humidity staining throughout, first blank and title page remounted, last leaf remounted, no end blank, some darkening at the gutters, occasional minor worming. There are interesting ownership marks: a monk of the Recollects in Valenciennes inscribed and dated the first blank in 1670; a number of marks from the Library of the Redemptorists; as well as a number of names, often repeated, and all crossed out. Printer's device of Melchior von Neuss (fl. 1525-1551) consists of an arrow with a snake wrapped around it, and the Latin motto FESTINA LENTE, which means "hurry slowly". Wonderful historiated initials featuring putii involved in various amusements. A very handsome folio edition, dating back almost 450 years, of the writings of Pope St. Leo I, also known as Pope Leo the Great, who met and negotiated with Atilla the Hun and saved Rome. Leo was a towering late Roman Latin author -- important to all Christian traditions -- Catholic, Byzantine Greek Orthodox and Protestant. The editor of the work is Peter Canisius, S.J. (Dutch: Pieter Kanis), (8 May 1521 - 21 December 1597), the first Jesuit in Germany. Canisius was a great figure of the Counter Reformation and a great scholar and theologian of the Church. Canisius lived during the height of the Protestant Reformation and dedicated much of his work to the clarification of the Catholic faith in light of the emergence of the new Protestant doctrines. He was also a vigorous defender of the Pope. This book was published the same year Peter was ordained. 1st Thus. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

Com xvi-436 pags. Encadernação da à poca inteira de pele. Reedição oitocentista do poema quinhentista em verso endecassilábico dedicada ao Rei Dom Sebastião. Inocêncio III, 262: 'JERONYMO CORTE-REAL, Senhor do morgado de Palma, e Capitão-mà r de uma armada nos mares da India, onde militava pelos annos de 1571, regressando para Lisboa pouco tempo depois porquanto já aqui se achava, ao que parece, em 1574. Nasceu provavelmente não longe do anno 1540. A sua naturalidade à , quanto eu posso julgar, ainda duvidosa. Alguns o deram nascido em Evora o P. João Baptista de Castro, não sei com que fundamento, affirma no Mappa de Portugal que fà ra natural de Lisboa e Barbosa no tomo IV da Bibl. colloca o seu nome entre os dos auctores cuja patria se ignora. Diz-se que morrêra nas propriedades do seu morgado em 1593. Alà m da merecida fama que adquiriu de poeta distincto, obteve tambem entre os seus contemporaneos a de mui habil na arte da pintura. Consta o Cerco de Diu de vinte e um cantos, em versos hendecasyllabos soltos. Na opinião dos criticos este poema tem merito pela abundancia e belleza de suas comparações, quasi sempre frizantes e originaes pelas suas descripções, que denunciam no poeta um talento e vocação especial para o genero descriptivo e finalmente pelo vigor do colorido, e fogo militar, que alardêa nas descripções dos combates. A linguagem e em geral pura, e elegante porà m o estylo nem sempre à tão poetico como seria para desejar por isso descáe muitas vezes em modos de dizer rasteiros, e menos dignos da magestade da epopà a, e da poesia elevada.

        Institutiones Iuris

      Lugduni (Lyon), France: In Veronica Vincentiana, 1546. Language: Latin. Beautiful two-color printing throughout; pages do, however, show heavy toning at the outer margins, prior owners' marks on the front endpapers and title page, and brief underlined passages as well as a water stain at the top bound corners of the last sixty pages and tiny perforations through the margins of the last twenty pages; the fold-out diagram at p.224 remains bright and intact. The binding remains square and tight except for modest relaxation at the hinges; the sumptuously tooled full leather hard cover bears surface cracking at the spine, some surface wear and occasional spots and scratches, rubbing at the corners and the raised bands of the spine, and the unfortunate loss of the lower of the two metal clasps, though the upper remains fully intact. An edition of Justinian's *Institutiones* from the *Corpus Juris Civilis*, annotated by Florentine Lawyer Silvestro Aldobrandini, father of Pope Clement VIII. Later editions of this work boast its annotator as "Patris Clementis VIII Pont. Max.", but this copy was printed in 1546, when Clement VIII would have been nine- or ten-year-old Ippolito Aldobrandini. An artifact contemporary not only with the gradual rediscovery and implementation of the *Iuris*, but also with the education of a young man whose eventual term as Pope would be distinguished by tireless legal maneuvering. From the title: Institutiones Iuris, D. Iustiniani Sacratis. Principis Prima legum cunabula, a Clarissimo Iuriscon. D. Syluestro Aldobrandino Florentino Annotationibus illustrata: sed ita, ut omnia in unum contulerit. In quibus etiam nihil praetermissum quod a G. Haloandro & E. Perrino est obseruatum. Roughly: " Dispositions of the Law', by The Holy Emperor Justinian. First cradle of laws, clarified with annotations by the famous legal expert Sylvestro Aldobrandini of Florence, and thusly, so that everything has been put together in one place. In which nothing at all has been left out, because it was edited by G. Haloandro & E. Perrino.". Full Leather. Good.
