        Libro de los inventores del arte de marear y de muchas trabajos que se passan enlos galeras

      First edition as a separate work of this very rare, and early discourse on the art of sailing; the Arte had been previously printed as part of the Libro llamado Menosprecio de Corte (1539), one of the Spanish foremost contributions to literature in the 16th century. The Arte de Marear provides an overview of maritime matters, comprehending the invention and use of the galley, a survey of the mariners of classical antiquity, a discourse on the dangers of the sea, on pirates, a description of the seas and its properties, the provisions the sailor must take before undertaking a voyage, and a very interesting chapter on the barbaric language spoken in Spanish galleys "barbaro lenguaje que hablan en las galeras". Guevara (1480 - 1545) was arguably one of the most prolific and famed Spanish author´s of the 16th century, a member of the courts of Isabel la Catolica and later Charles V. The Menosprecio, or the Arte by itself, were translated into English (A Book of the invention of the art of navigation, London, 1578), French and Italian. Nuncio´s woodcut device to title page, incorporating two flying cranes battling over a fish; printed in black letter. Provenance: Harrison D. Horblit, his bookplate on front pastedown, his sale part II, Sotheby's London, 11 November 1974, lot 496. Frank S. Streeter Library, his bookplate on front pastedown. Belgica Typografica, 1353. Palau, 110393 and 110276 (for the 1539 edition). Peeters-Fontainas, 572.

        Adagiorum Chiliades

      Woodcut printer's device on title & verso of final leaf. 43 p.l. (of 44, lacking the final blank), 3-1071 pp. (lacking a1). Thick small folio (331 x 224 mm.), cont. German - probably Augsburg - blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, two fore-edge clasps (see below). Basel: H. Froben & N. Episcopius, 1546. Erasmus's Adagia is an annotated collection of Greek and Latin proverbs. It is amongst the most celebrated of humanist texts, a mine of lore about the ancient world, serving as a kind of encyclopaedia of antiquity. It was constantly printed in many editions and formats. First published in 1500 in Paris, and constantly subject to revision and enlargement (some of it authorial), the Adagia received from the Froben presses their ultimate form: this edition of 1546 is a reprint of the 1539 edition, preserving the large folio format, and is well provided with indexes, a highly necessary tool for the proper use of the book. Vecellio Fore-edge Painting: Erasmus is portrayed in a black robe and hat of a scholar, seated writing at a desk in a study, a red book above. The bottom edges are marbled red-brown, top edges are painted blue. Erasmus's works fell foul of the Inquisition, and his name has been scored out on the title and elsewhere. However the fore-edge, which was after all painted in a private house, escaped the attentions of the censors: what must be seen as a picture of Erasmus is plain for all to see, and the fore-edge is quite clearly lettered vertically ADA[gia] DES. er. rot., the title and Christian name being quite clearly innocuous, whereas the tell-tale er[rasmus] rot[terodamus], the name by which any narrow-minded cure could identify him, is in much smaller letters. The painted decoration is the work of Cesare Vecellio (1521-1601), a cousin and pupil of Titian, in whose studio Vecellio worked until Titian's death. Among Vecellio's major paintings is the altarpiece at Belluno Cathedral. In addition to the painted fore-edges executed for the Pillones, Vecellio also painted a room in the Palazzo Pillone with the Four Seasons and the Rape of the Sabines. In his famous book on costume and manners, De gli habiti antichi et moderni (Venice: 1590), Vecellio mentions the library and other collections of the Pillone family as well as their generous hospitality. For his imagery, Vecellio took each book's author or content, so there are a series of author portraits, as here, or scenes, maps and views. 172 volumes were decorated in this way, 154 with fore-edges painted by Vecellio and 21 with original drawings on their vellum covers by him and other artists. Provenance: 1. Bonaccorso Grino (d. 1553) binding; kinsman by marriage to: 2. Odorico Pillone (1503-1593), Belluno; fore-edges. 3. Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), Armitage Bridge, Yorkshire; bookplate; sold by his heirs in 1957 to 4. Pierre Berès (1913-2008), Paris. The Pillone Library has long been celebrated. Noted already in the 16th century as a library of "molti e diversi libri," it is celebrated among bibliophiles today for the remarkable painted decoration of its fore-edges and as a rare survival up to the modern day of a Renaissance library. The Pillone family, originally of Val Cadore, was prominent in the civic history of Belluno. Their library at Villa Casteldardo outside Belluno was primarily formed by the father and son, Antonio (1464-1533), and Odorico (1503-94), the former a soldier and diplomat, the latter a learned jurist. In the 1580s Odorico Pillone (or possibly his son Giorgio) commissioned Vecellio to decorate the fore-edges of a substantial portion of the best books in the library with paintings related to the contents. The 172 volumes decorated by Vecellio have had a remarkably stable existence over the next four centuries, which accounts in large measure for their almost uniformly excellent state of preservation. They remained together with other family collections until 1874 when the library was sold to the Venetian antiquarian Paolo Maresio Bazolle. The decorated volumes were then bought en bloc by the Yorkshire baronet Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), and remained in his family until they were acquired and finally dispersed by Pierre Berès in 1957. Thanks to their unusual decoration and to the fact that the library remained intact until the 1950s, all of the Pillone books have been preserved in their original bindings. Binding: Contemporary south German, probably Augsburg, pigskin over bevelled wooden boards, the panelled sides are tooled with rolls and stamps (not in Hobson). Two fore-edge clasps. The paper endleaves point to Augsburg; see the watermark Briquet 1012 (Augsburg 1544). This is one of the 59 books that Hobson calls "an unexpected element in the collection" (p. 34). Most of these were printed in Germany, some in France, only one in Italy. All are in German blind-stamped calf or pigskin bindings as the present copy. Odorico Pillone probably acquired these books, by gift, purchase or bequest, from his relation Giovanni Grino, who had inherited the collection from his father Bonaccorso Grino (Hobson, p. 36). Fine copy. ❧ Berès, Bibliothèque Pillone, 96.

      Lyon, (Lugduni), Apud Seb. Gryphium, 1546. 8vo. 2 volumes: (LXXII index),552,(1 blank),(1 printer's mark); 526,(1 blank),(1 printer's mark) p. 20th century leather 18 cm Omnia quae extant opera vol. 1 & 2: De antiquitatibus Iudaeorum libri XX (Ref: Schreckenberg p. 7, Schreckenberg Supplementband p. 167; Hoffmann 2,450; Graesse 3,481) (Details: These 2 volumes are the volumes 1 & 2 of a 3 volume set 'Omnia quae extant opera', and they contain the complete Latin translation of 'De antiquitatibus Iudaeorum libri XX'. Volume 3, with the remaining works of Josephus, is lacking. On the titles are the printer's mark of Sebastianus Gryphius, depicting a griffin, which mythological animal symbolizes courage, diligence, watchfulness, and rapidity of execution, used as a pun of his family name Gryph or Greif. From the claws of this creature hangs a big rectangular stone, symbolizing Constancy, beneath which is a winged globe, symbolizing Fortune. The motto is 'Virtute duce / comite fortuna', 'Virtue thy leader, fortune thy comrade', a quote from a letter of Cicero to Plancus (Epistulae ad Familiares, liber X,3). On the last page of both volumes a woodcut griffin) (Condition: Old leather binding covered with untanned leather. Binding with traces of wear. Front hinge of volume 1 cracking. Flyleaves absent. Both pastedowns of volume 2 renewed. Titles somewhat soiled, and with a small inscription. A name on the first title neatly erased. Small paper label on the title of volume 2. Small tear in title of volume 2 because of overstretch in the margin. Occasional old and small ink underlinings. One old and small ink annotation in German) (Note: Flavius Josephus, born 37/38 A.D., 'was a Jewish priest of aristocratic descent and a Pharisee. Though a zealous defender of Jewish religion and culture, politically he was pro-Roman and without sympathy for extreme Jewish nationalism'. His first work was a history of the First war of Palestine Jews against the Romans, which raged from 66 till 70 A.D., and of which the author was an eyewitness. The war ended with the fall of Jerusalem, the walls and Temple were destroyed and most of its inhabitants were enslaved. Josephus, who tried to follow the objective methods of Thucydides and Polybius, wrote this history in Aramaic, 'of which a Greek translation, the extant 'Bellum Judaicum' in seven books, appeared between 75 and 79. (...) His next work, the 'Antiquitates Judaicae' in twenty books (published 93/94), is a history of the Jews from the Creation to immediately before the outbreak of the war, giving a fuller account of the period from the Maccabees to A.D. 66 than that in 'Bellum Judaicum' and showing a more hostile attitude to Herod the Great'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 565) Josephus probably wrote this work, sometimes also called 'Judaica Archaeologia', to defend the sacred history of the Jews, and 'to show that Jewish tradition was as ancient and trustworthy as the Egyptian and Mesopotamian traditions and surely preceded Greek culture. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 497) § The 'editio princeps' of the Greek text of the complete works of Josephus was published in Basel in 1544 by Frobenius, and was edited by Arnoldus Peraxylus with the help of Sigismund Gelenius. The 'editio princeps' of the ancient Latin translation of 'De antiquitatibus Judaeorum' was published much earlier, in Augsburg in 1470. (See Schreckenberg p. 1) This translation is sometimes ascribed to the Roman statesman and author Cassiodorus, born ca. 485, died after 580, who served in the administration of Theoderic the Great, king of the Ostrogoths. He however didnot translate it, but he commissioned the translation. He mentions this explicitily in his Institutiones 1:17,1: 'Ut est Iosephus (...). Hunc tamen ab amicis nostris, quoniam est subtilis nimis et multiplex, magno labore in libris viginti duobus converti fecimus in Latinum'. 'Ich habe ihn aber dennoch von meinen Freunden unter viel Mühen- er gilt ja als ungemein scharfsinnig und vielschichtig- in 22 Büchern ins Lateinische übertragen lassen'. (Cassiodor, Institutiones Divinarum, übersetzt und eingeleitet von W. Bürsgens, Freiburg etc., 2003, p. 222/223) This Gryphius edition of 1546 is a reissue of that translation of 1470) (Provenance: In the first title are faintly discernable traces of 6 blind stamped capitals: 'LDDAVH'. A name?) (Collation: alpha-epsilon8, zeta4; a-z8; A-L8, M4; aa-KK8) (Photographs on request)

        Il Giudizio di Paride

      1546 - Bulino, 1546, monogrammato in lastra. 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. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1546, signed on plate. A 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 interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Bartsch 89, Pauli 92. Dim.47x70. Dimensioni [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Small 4to (19 x 13 cm). With woodcut arms of King João III of Portugal on title-page. 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). Contemporary richly black-tooled calf, rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down.

      - 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.Only very slightly browned with some occasional, mostly marginal, minor foxing and a few small stains. Binding rubbed along the extremities, slightly damaged at the corners and with a water stain on the back board, rebacked, as noted above. Overall in very good condition.

        A DETECTION OF THE DEVILS SOPHISTRIE

      London: Jhon Herforde, 1546. FIRST EDITION. This is the fine Christie-Miller copy of a very rare theological work from the English Reformation, penned by a bishop who DNB describes as "one of the giants of Tudor politics." According to DNB, "Gardiner published a series of English polemics, the first against George Joye on the question of justification, 'A Declaration of such True Articles as George Joye hath Gone about to Confute' (London, 1546), and the next in defence of the real presence in the eucharist, 'A Detection of the Devils Sophistry' (London, 1546). During the reign of Edward VI the eucharist became Gardiner's principal theological preoccupation. . . . Among the English statesmen of the sixteenth century, only Wolsey, Cromwell, Cecil, and perhaps Walsingham exceeded him in stature. Few other politicians of the age had a career of comparable duration. Gardiner was a figure of the first rank for almost thirty years, surpassing the records of his first patron, Wolsey, and his great rival, Cromwell. Moreover, as the leading English religious conservative of his time, Gardiner bulks large in political, intellectual, and ecclesiastical history. He enjoyed a European reputation as a theologian, second only to Fisher among his English contemporaries." This copy once graced the Britwell Court library, which De Ricci says was simply the most outstanding collection of English books ever assembled. The voracious book collector William Henry Miller (1789-1848) was a bibliophile who, in de Ricci's words, "literally bought by the cartload." He was a major buyer at the Heber sales, which featured much early English literature. The books were kept at Miller's Britwell Court estate in Buckinghamshire, where they were added to substantially by successors Samuel Christy (d. 1889) and Wakefield Christy (d. 1898), both of whom took the name Christie-Miller. Their immense library was sold between 1916 and 1927 at Sotheby's, bringing in more than £500,000. Later owner Sinclair Hamilton (1884-1978) was a lawyer, book collector, and preeminent authority in the field of early American book illustration.. 159 x 105 mm. (6 1/4 x 4 1/4"). xxxii, [4], xxxiii-cxxxiii [i.e. cxxxi], [1] leaves. FIRST EDITION. 19th century full brown crushed morocco by W. Pratt, covers with gilt superlibros of Christie-Miller, raised bands, gilt titling, turn-ins densely gilt with floral roll, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with morocco bookplate of Sinclair Hamilton. STC 11591. Front joint cracked and tender, lower joint a bit worn, leaves lightly washed and pressed in keeping with bibliophilic fashion of the period, but still crisp, with comfortable margins.

Übersetzung des erstmals 1546 in lateinischer Sprache erschienenen Werkes "Vienna Austriae". Die erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung, die 1619 erschien, war die erste Stadtgeschichte in deutscher Sprache. Die Chronik "wurde trotz manch fragwürdiger Details die Grundlage weiterer stadthistorischer Forschungen. Für die Verbreitung des Werks entscheidend wurde allerdings erst die..vom Rektor der Bürgerschule zu St. Stephan, Heinrich Abermann, publizierte (leicht überarbeitete u. fortgeführte) dt.

Oporinus (bei dem die erste Ausg. in Basel erschien) beidrucken, der als Grund derselben seine Krankheit angibt. Eine Seite in der Einleitung enthält die "Namen dern Authorn, welche..citirt worden". Das Werk ist in 4 Bücher (1. Buch: ..von der Aelte der Stadt Wienn / Ursach auch Ursprung des Namens. 2. B.: ..von der Nobilität / Adel / Freyheit / Praerogativen u.

Bei vorliegendem Exemplar sind einige Ss. verbunden: Vortitel, Front. u. Nebentit. (v. 1. Buch) sind nach der Widm. des Druckers u. das eigentl. nachgestellte Register vor der Appendix eingebunden. LAZIUS Wolfgang (1514-1565) Geschichtsschreiber, Kartograph, Humanist u. Arzt. Studierte Medizin in Wien u. später in Ingolstadt, wo er schließlich den Doctor med. erwarb. Er begann 1630 in Wr. Neustadt seine ärztliche Praxis. 1536 arbeitete er als Lektor für humanistische Fächer in Wien u. bis 1541 folgte eine Anstellung als Militärarzt in Ungarn. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Wien erlangte L. eine Professur an der med. Fak. der Univ., wo er nun 25 Jahre hindurch tätig sein sollte. Er bekleidete in dieser Zeit 8-mal das Amt des Dekans, wurde 2-mal zum Rektor gewählt u. 1563 Superintendent. Sein größter Könner, König Ferdinand I., ernennt ihn zu seinem Leibarzt, geheimen Rat, Hofhistoriographen u. Leiter seiner Antiquitäten- u. Münzsammlung. Die Bedeutung L. liegt jedoch jenseits seiner Lehr- u. Repräsentationstätigkeit auf seinen Forschungen zur österr. Geschichte u. Geographie. Seiner Lieblingsbeschäftigung, dem historischen Forschen, zuliebe, unternahm L. viele Reisen um wissenschaftliche Unterlagen zu sammeln. Er veröffentlichte Werke zur antiken Geschichte, Numismatik, Epigraphik, Genealogie u. Geographie. Als er 1565 in Wien starb, wurde er in der Peterskirche beigesetzt, die er 1555-1557 auf eigene Kosten renovieren ließ.

        Elementorum geometricorum libri XV

      Basel: Johann Hervagium, 1546. Possibly a contemporary vellum binding, title in ink on spine, certainly a remboitage, with new endpapers; despite some minor staining on the first few leaves, a clean, wide-margined copy, with the ownership signature of Jacques de Baissonrond on the title, and contemporary annotations on the first few leaves of text. A large, wide-margined copy of the 1546 Herwagen edition of Euclid. According to Zeitlinger, it is "the first complete edition of Euclid's works." It contains Theon's explanation of the first thirteen books rendered in Latin by Bartholomaeus of Venice, plus the explanation by Campanus for all of the books, and by Hypsiclis of Alexandria for the last two. To these are added the Phaenomena, Catoptrica, and Data, as well as the first printing of the Opusculum de Levi & ponderoso, a fragment of which was discovered just as the present work's first edition was about to be printed in 1537. "The Basle editions, an important series, all folios, were printed by Johann Herwagen between 1533 and 1558. Herwagen had migrated from Strasburg about 1528, when he acquired the citizenship of Basle, and married Gertrude, widow of the learned Basle printer John Froben and the daughter of the scholar and patron of letters Wolfgang Lachner. He was the first printer to inset Euclid's diagrams in the text . . . In August, 1537, he published a Latin version of the Elements, followed by other works attributed to Euclid. It is in roman type and contains three pages of introduction by Philip Melanchthon addressed 'stdiosis adolescentibus'. From many copies this introduction has been removed by the clerical censor who has added his stamp. 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 . . . A reprint of this edition appeared in 1546; it is quite differently set up.".

        Der Portolan-Atlas des Battista Agnese. Faksimile.

      - Aus Venedig kamen im 16. Jahrhundert die besten geografischen Karten. Kein Wunder, dass der Genueser Battista Agnese seine Werkstatt zur Kartenherstellung dort unterhielt und in großer Produktivität über 80 See-Atlanten schuf. Sein Atlas von 1546 ist einer von etwa 30 handsignierten Werken, er repräsentiert die damals aktuellen Kenntnisse der Erdkunde und gilt als eines der frühesten Kartenwerke der Menschheit. Zusammengefasst wird die Darstellung der Welt durch eine Gesamtkarte in ovaler Projektion, welche die Route der Weltumsegelung des Magellan zeigt. Zu navigatorischen Zwecken eher ungeeignet, bildet der Atlas aus heutiger Sicht einen Fundus wertvoller historischer Sachkenntnisse dar und zeigt zahlreiche Neuentdeckungen. Nach der zeitlichen Gliederung des Agnese-Oeuvres gehört der Atlas zur so genannten »postkalifornischen Gruppe«, die alle seine Werke von 1542-1552 umfasst und in denen das damals legendäre Kalifornien bereits als Halbinsel dargestellt wird. Die Italien-Karte zeigt die Halbinsel mit ganz erstaunlicher Detailhaftigkeit. Zum Inhalt zählen ferner eine Tafel der Sonnendeklination und eine Armillarsphäre, ein Zodiakal-Kalender sowie zwei Seiten Text mit astronomischen Angaben. Wie alle Arbeiten aus der Werkstatt Agneses ist auch der Atlas von 1546 als Luxus-Objekt gestaltet worden, das von hochrangigen und wohlhabenden Personen als Sammlerstück oder prestigereiches Geschenk bestellt wurde. Detailgetreu und mit kostbarem Gold erhöht sind viele historische und wichtige Orte, Inseln und Personen auf den Karten und Bildern dargestellt. Kommentar von Tamara P. Worona, St. Petersburg, redaktionell bearbeitet von Arthur Dürst, Zürich. Vollständige Faksimile-Ausgabe der 40 Seiten (davon 13 doppelseitige Karten, die in einem für Agnese typischen Verfahren Rückseite an Rückseite kaschiert werden) im Originalformat 42,5 x 28,7 cm. Einband Leder mit Blind- und Goldprägung. Kommentar 48 Seiten. Lim. Auflage (700 handnum. Expl. für den deutschen Sprachraum). Mit leichten Lagerspuren. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

This copy lacks the folding plate as usual, but contains the two unsigned conjugate leaves with table of contents (bound after signature A), often missing in other copies. "Tartaglia's Questi 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 Scipione de Ferro in the first or second decate of the 16th 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 keep it secret, but six years later Cardano broke his promise by publishing the rule in his Ars magna ... Cardano did credit both Tartaglia and Ferro with the discovery of the rule, but Tartaglia was incensed at Cardano's breach of promise and abused him roundly in Book IX of the Questi, in which he also published his own version of his researches into third-degree Equations."

Encadernação artística da época, inteira de pele com ferros rolados a seco sobre as pastas e nas esquadrias das mesmas com motivos florais. Exemplar com assinatura de posse (datada de 1970) na follha de guarda. Primeira edição rarissima de uma obra com um comentário à história dos portugueses na Índia e às conquistas dos Vice-Reis, escrita pelo um famoso humanista português Diogo de Teive (ca. 1514-ca. 1565). Um dos mais importantes relatos do segundo cerco de Diu que constituiu um dos mais celebrados feitos heróicos dos portugueses no Oriente. O Segundo Cerco à fortaleza portuguesa de Diu pelas forças do sultanato do Guzerate, capitaneadas por Coge Sofar, mercador e senhor de Surrate, teve lugar entre Abril e Novembro de 1546. Este acontecimento, de incontestável importância para o ?Estado da Índia?, definiu a governação do Vice-Rei D. João de Castro (1545-1548) e representou a derradeira tentativa guzerate para retomar a fortaleza de Diu, anteriormente entregue aos portugueses em 1535. Inocencio II, 176. [não refere esta obra] 'DIOGO DE TEIVE, natural da cidade de Braga, e Doutor em Direito Civil pela Univ. de París. Chamado por el rei D. João III da Univ. de Bordeaux (onde regentava uma cadeira de Humanidades) para a de Coimbra, então novamente reformada, ahi começou a ler em 1548 a segunda classe de latim e grego. Foi depois nomeado Reitor do collegio das Artes, que em 1555 por ordem do mesmo rei teve de entregar aos jesuitas. (V. a Deducção Chron. e Anal., parte I, pag. 25 e 26 da edição de 8.º) Sendo depois movido em um canonicato na se de Miranda, consta que ainda vivia em 1565, sem que haja sido possivel verificar a epocha certa do seu obito, nem tão pouco a do seu nascimento, que provavelmente teria logar nos principios do seculo XVI. Este insigne humanista dá honra á sua patria, e tem sido dignamente apreciado por naturaes e estranhos.' Barbosa Machado I, 720. «DIOGO DE TEYVE natural da Augusta Cidade de Braga, e hum dos mais celébres professores de letras humanas, que floresceu neste Reino. Para se instruir nas Ciências assim amenas, como severas passou à Corte de Paris onde pela natural viveza do engenho, e penetrante compreensão de juízo se adiantou com tal excesso a todos os seus condiscípulos, que recebido o grau de Doutor na Faculdade do Direito Cesáreo regeu uma Cadeira de Humanidades na Universidade de Bordeaux competindo na Ciência da língua Latina, afluência Poética, e facúndia Oratória com Jorge Buchanan, e Marco António Moreto, que no ano de 1526 eram respeitados como Oráculos destas faculdades que ensinavam na mesma Universidade. Querendo a Majestade delRey D. João o III Prover de Mestres a Universidade de Coimbra novamente por ele edificada o mandou convidar para tão nobre ministério com largo estipendio. Obedeceu prontamente à insinuação do seu Príncipe como se fora preceito, e acompanhado de André de Gouveia, e seu irmão Marçal de Gouveia, chegou a Coimbra no ano de 1547 onde foi provido na segunda Cadeira de Humanidades sendo Mestre da primeira Jorge Buchanan de nação Escocês. Tendo exercitado alguns anos o magistério com igual gloria do seu talento, como interesse da mocidade estudiosa subiu a ser Reitor do Colégio das Artes, onde era Mestre a tempo que ElRey D.

        Meshal Ha-Kadmoni. [The Primeval Fable].

      Venice Meir Parenzo -1547 1546 - First edition. Small 4to (18 x 12 cm); 64 leaves. Printer's device on title. 80 woodcut illustrations. Some soiling and staining, including dampstaining at margins; owners' notes on title page and verso; a few marginal tears, most repaired; fore-edge final leaf chipped. Modern brown calf, blind fillet and corner devices, spine gilt tooled and lettered. Text in Hebrew. Illustrated collection of moral fables and animal stories by Isaac ben Solomon ibn Abi Sahula, in rhymed prose interspersed with verse. Ibn Sahula, who was both a scholar and a physician, was born in 1244 in Guadalajara (Castile) and wandered for much of his life. He was a student under the kabbalist R. Moses of Bugros, and wrote secular poetry until around 1281 when his outlook changed and he began to write Meshal Ha-KAdmoni. Ibn Sahula writes that his material is original but based on the Talmud and Midrashim, and that in style he has followed the example of the prophets who presented moral lessons in allegorical form. He also wished to demonstrate that Hebrew was as suitable a vehicle for conveying moral lessons as Arabic. The stories show both kabbalistic and Indian influence. Some eighty woodcut illustrations grace the 64 leaves of this book, with one or two captioned woodcuts to a page. Though resembling illustration of the incunabula editions, Meir Parenzo, the printer of this edition, commissioned an entire new series of woodcut illustrations providing more detail and artistic sophistication. Each fable is accompanied by a woodcut illustration with a caption. There are eighty illustrations, but the actual number of woodcuts is lower as several are employed more than once. The illustrations were prepared by three different hands. Vinograd, Venice 319; A.M. Habermann, Kiryat Sefer vol.

Honeyman 25. Horblit 2a, Norman 19, Hoover 14, PMM 79 (c.f). - FIRST EDITION OF THE "FIRST HANDBOOK OF MODERN SYSTEMATIC MINERALOGY," De natura fossilium, the third of five treatises in the present work (Horblit). Also included here are the first published work on physical geology (De ortu & causis subterraneorum), a treatise on subterranean waters and gases (De natura eorum quae effluunt ex terra), a survey of classical references to metals and mines (De veteribus & novis metallis), and a new edition of Agricola's first scientific publication (Bermannus); all but Bermannus are printed for the first time. "Agricola's most important work, & after De re metallica itself, was De natura fossilium" (Hoover). In this work, "Agricola parted from the general view of Aristotle that stones, metals, and gems had their origin in the influence of heavenly bodies. & Instead he looked to natural causes, to the solution of minerals in liquids and their precipitation by gravity, heat, cold, and evaporation" (Dibner Agricola, p.18). De natura fossilium introduced Agricola's system of classifying minerals according to their physical properties and described eighty minerals and metallic ores (including twenty previously unrecorded). Very Good.

The edition of Cicero is missing the English catalogs. De Rerum inventoribus was blacklisted in 1575 and reissued in redacted form and editing that we present is not so no.

Brunet gives 1499 for the date of the first édition.Demi Sheepskin blond marbled early nineteenth. Smooth back three jewels. Part of title and volume number beige. Lack paper keeps on upper cover of Volume 1 and the lower flat Volume 2, Interior very fresh.

In the form of articles, it is treated with all kinds of inventions, salt, pottery, paintings, linen, music ... The book is also a history of medicine and magic. Polydore Vergil naturally drew on much the Ancients. Polydore Vergil (1470-1555) was born and died in Urbino, after studying in Bologna and Padua, he became secretary to the Duke of Urbino and the chamberlain of Alexander VI. His first two writings made him famous and won great popularity 'Proverbiorum Libellus' and' De Rerum inventoribus', translated into French by 'The inventors of things. In 1501 the pope sent him to England, becoming intimate of Henry VII, the latter ordered him a history of England by which Polidoro became the first modern historian, not content to make a simple but chronic student events and he influenced all future historians and even Shakespeare in his vision of the story. He returned to his native country during the religious changes in England. (Catholic Encyclopedia). Editing sentences and maxims of Cicero was given by Pierre Lagnier Robert Estienne. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Übersetzung des erstmals 1546 in lateinischer Sprache erschienenen Werkes "Vienna Austriae". Die erste Ausgabe der Übersetzung, die 1619 erschien, war die erste Stadtgeschichte in deutscher Sprache. Die Chronik "wurde trotz manch fragwürdiger Details die Grundlage weiterer stadthistorischer Forschungen. Für die Verbreitung des Werks entscheidend wurde allerdings erst die..vom Rektor der Bürgerschule zu St. Stephan, Heinrich Abermann, publizierte (leicht überarbeitete u. fortgeführte) dt. Übersetzung." (vgl. dazu Czeike). L. entschuldigt sich in dem mit Prolog-Gedichten eingeleiteten Werk wegen der Druckfehler und läßt den Brief des Buchdruckers Joh. Oporinus (bei dem die erste Ausg. in Basel erschien) beidrucken, der als Grund derselben seine Krankheit angibt. Eine Seite in der Einleitung enthält die "Namen dern Authorn, welche..citirt worden". Das Werk ist in 4 Bücher (1. Buch: ..von der Aelte der Stadt Wienn / Ursach auch Ursprung des Namens. 2. B.: ..von der Nobilität / Adel / Freyheit / Praerogativen u. Vorzug der Haupt-Stadt Wienn in Oesterreich. 3. B.: ..von der Obrigkeit der Stadt Wienn / und derselben Landes-Fürsten. 4.

Bei vorliegendem Exemplar sind einige Ss. verbunden: Vortitel, Front. u. Nebentit. (v. 1. Buch) sind nach der Widm. des Druckers u. das eigentl. nachgestellte Register vor der Appendix eingebunden. LAZIUS Wolfgang (1514-1565) Geschichtsschreiber, Kartograph, Humanist u. Arzt. Studierte Medizin in Wien u. später in Ingolstadt, wo er schließlich den Doctor med. erwarb. Er begann 1630 in Wr. Neustadt seine ärztliche Praxis. 1536 arbeitete er als Lektor für humanistische Fächer in Wien u. bis 1541 folgte eine Anstellung als Militärarzt in Ungarn. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Wien erlangte L. eine Professur an der med. Fak. der Univ., wo er nun 25 Jahre hindurch tätig sein sollte. Er bekleidete in dieser Zeit 8-mal das Amt des Dekans, wurde 2-mal zum Rektor gewählt u. 1563 Superintendent. Sein größter Könner, König Ferdinand I., ernennt ihn zu seinem Leibarzt, geheimen Rat, Hofhistoriographen u. Leiter seiner Antiquitäten- u. Münzsammlung. Die Bedeutung L. liegt jedoch jenseits seiner Lehr- u. Repräsentationstätigkeit auf seinen Forschungen zur österr. Geschichte u. Geographie. Seiner Lieblingsbeschäftigung, dem historischen Forschen, zuliebe, unternahm L. viele Reisen um wissenschaftliche Unterlagen zu sammeln. Er veröffentlichte Werke zur antiken Geschichte, Numismatik, Epigraphik, Genealogie u. Geographie. Als er 1565 in Wien starb, wurde er in der Peterskirche beigesetzt, die er 1555-1557 auf eigene Kosten renovieren ließ.

Gryphium, 1546. 8vo. 2 volumes: (LXXII index),552,(1 blank),(1 printer's mark); 526,(1 blank),(1 printer's mark) p. 20th century leather 18 cm Omnia quae extant opera vol. 1 & 2: De antiquitatibus Iudaeorum libri XX (Ref: Schreckenberg p. 7, Schreckenberg Supplementband p. 167; Hoffmann 2,450; Graesse 3,481) (Details: These 2 volumes are the volumes 1 & 2 of a 3 volume set 'Omnia quae extant opera', and they contain the complete Latin translation of 'De antiquitatibus Iudaeorum libri XX'. Volume 3, with the remaining works of Josephus, is lacking. On the titles are the printer's mark of Sebastianus Gryphius, depicting a griffin, which mythological animal symbolizes courage, diligence, watchfulness, and rapidity of execution, used as a pun of his family name Gryph or Greif. From the claws of this creature hangs a big rectangular stone, symbolizing Constancy, beneath which is a winged globe, symbolizing Fortune. The motto is 'Virtute duce / comite fortuna', 'Virtue thy leader, fortune thy comrade', a quote from a letter of Cicero to Plancus (Epistulae ad Familiares, liber X,3). On the last page of both volumes a woodcut griffin) (Condition: Old leather binding covered with untanned leather. Binding with traces of wear. Front hinge of volume 1 cracking. Flyleaves absent. Both pastedowns of volume 2 renewed. Titles somewhat soiled, and with a small inscription. A name on the first title neatly erased. Small paper label on the title of volume 2. Small tear in title of volume 2 because of overstretch in the margin. Occasional old and small ink underlinings. One old and small ink annotation in German) (Note: Flavius Josephus, born 37/38 A.D., 'was a Jewish priest of aristocratic descent and a Pharisee. Though a zealous defender of Jewish religion and culture, politically he was pro-Roman and without sympathy for extreme Jewish nationalism'. His first work was a history of the First war of Palestine Jews against the Romans, which raged from 66 till 70 A.D., and of which the author was an eyewitness. The war ended with the fall of Jerusalem, the walls and Temple were destroyed and most of its inhabitants were enslaved. Josephus, who tried to follow the objective methods of Thucydides and Polybius, wrote this history in Aramaic, 'of which a Greek translation, the extant 'Bellum Judaicum' in seven books, appeared between 75 and 79. (...) His next work, the 'Antiquitates Judaicae' in twenty books (published 93/94), is a history of the Jews from the Creation to immediately before the outbreak of the war, giving a fuller account of the period from the Maccabees to A.D. 66 than that in 'Bellum Judaicum' and showing a more hostile attitude to Herod the Great'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 565) Josephus probably wrote this work, sometimes also called 'Judaica Archaeologia', to defend the sacred history of the Jews, and 'to show that Jewish tradition was as ancient and trustworthy as the Egyptian and Mesopotamian traditions and surely preceded Greek culture. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 497) § The 'editio princeps' of the Greek text of the complete works of Josephus was published in Basel in 1544 by Frobenius, and was edited by Arnoldus Peraxylus with the help of Sigismund Gelenius. The 'editio princeps' of the ancient Latin translation of 'De antiquitatibus Judaeorum' was published much earlier, in Augsburg in 1470. (See Schreckenberg p. 1) This translation is sometimes ascribed to the Roman statesman and author Cassiodorus, born ca. 485, died after 580, who served in the administration of Theoderic the Great, king of the Ostrogoths. He however didnot translate it, but he commissioned the translation. He mentions this explicitily in his Institutiones 1:17,1: 'Ut est Iosephus (...). Hunc tamen ab amicis nostris, quoniam est subtilis nimis et multiplex, magno labore in libris viginti duobus converti fecimus in Latinum'. 'Ich habe ihn aber dennoch von meinen Freunden unter viel Mühen- er gilt ja als ungemein scharfsinnig und vielschichtig- in 22 Büchern ins Lateinische übertragen lassen'. (Cassiodor, Institutiones Divinarum, übersetzt und eingeleitet von W. Bürsgens, Freiburg etc., 2003, p. 222/223) This Gryphius edition of 1546 is a reissue of that translation of 1470) (Provenance: In the first title are faintly discernable traces of 6 blind stamped capitals: 'LDDAVH'. A name?) (Collation: alpha-epsilon8, zeta4; a-z8; A-L8, M4; aa-KK8) (Photographs on request)
