TEIVE, Diogo de (Jacobo TEVIO).
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 restore … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lonicer, Adam (attrib.)].
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ce sont ceux de moyenne grosseur, dits « gros romains », les premiers achevés - qui servirent une première fois deux ans plus tôt pour l'impression de l'Histoire ecclésiastique d'Eusèbe. Sur la page de titre, la marque typographique « au basilic » et la devise grecque propre aux ouvrages imprimés avec ces caractères par les imprimeurs royaux : Robert Estienne fut nommé imprimeur du roi pour les langues latine et hébraïque en 1539, puis pour la langue grecque à partir de 1544. Il collabora dès lors avec Claude Garamond à la réalisation des caractères grecs dits "royaux" (typis Regiis). En 1540 François Ier avait chargé Garamond de lui fournir les poinçons des trois sortes de caractères. Pour dessiner ces Grecs du Roi, Garamond s'inspira de l'écriture du célèbre calligraphe crétois Ange Vergece, « notre écrivain en grec » comme l'appelait François Ier. Le premier livre imprimé avec les types grecs de Garamont est un alphabet grec publié en 1543, véritable plaquette publicitaire où l'on retrouve toutes les lettres et toutes les ligatures correspondant au premier corps gravé, le corps moyen.

"C'est le premier ouvrage alchimique orné de gravures symboliques. (.) Lacinius fit illustrer le traité de gravures sur bois montrant des diagrammes mais aussi de quatorze allégories retraçant le processus alchimique." Van Lennep, Alchimie pp. 153-154.

"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.

Com xvi-436 pags. Encadernação da época 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-mór 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 é, 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 fôra 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. Além 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 fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Justinian; Iustinianus; Iustiniani; Aldobrandini, Silvestro; Aldobrandino, Syluestro
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.

Basel: Froben, 1546. First edition, and a very handsome copy, of "the first handbook of modern systematic mineralogy."-Horblit 2a. With the bookplate of Alexandre Brongniart (1770-1847), the well-known geologist and mineralogist (see D.S.B., II, pp. 493-97). 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.

Hans Sebald BEHAM Nuremberg 1500 - Frankfurt 1550
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAUROLICO, Francesco.
First and only edition (see Rara Aritmetica) of the first clear statement of the principle of mathematical induction. <br/><br/> "Francesco Maurolico is generally recognized to have been one of the foremost mathematicians of the sixteenth century" (Rosen); Cajori has called him 'the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century'. Only a few of his many works were printed, the present volume containing the majority of his published scientific writings in eight treatises, each published here for the first time: <i> De sphaera liber unus </i>(in which he criticized Copernicus);<i> Computus Ecclesiasticus in summam collectus; Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum; Tractatus de lineis horariis; Euclidis propositiones elementorum; Musicae traditione; De lineis horariis; and Arithmeticorum. </i><br/><br/> "The greatest number of Maurolico's mathematical writings are gathered in the <i>Opuscula mathematica</i>; indeed, the second volume of that work, <i>Arithmeticorum libri duo</i>, is wholly devoted to that subject and contains, among other things, some notable research on the theory of numbers. This includes, in particular, a treatment of polygonal numbers that is more complete than that of Diophantus, to which Maurolico added a number of simple and ingenious proofs. L. E. Dickson has remarked upon Maurolico's argument that every perfect number is hexagonal, and therefore traingular, while Baldassarre Boncompagni noted his proof of a peculiarity of the succession of odd numbers... <br/><br/> "Among the topics related to mathematics in the Opuscula are chronology (the treatise 'Com … [Click Below for Full Description]
