Persius Flaccus, Aulus.
[colophon: Antverpiae: typis Aegidij Diest, 1546]. 8vo (16.5 cm, 6.5"). 60 ff. The poems of Persius (a.d. 34–62) are more Stoic sermons than satires, preaching a moral life during one of Rome's more corrupt periods and doing so, most remarkably, without a hint of self-righteousness. Following an introduction from German humanist Hermann von dem Busche (1468–1534), this neatly crafted edition contains all six of Persius' satires with plentiful and extensive commentary from Dutch humanist and poet Johann Murmellius (ca. 1480–1517), who is best known for his Latin primer Pappa puerorum and his positive reputation as an educational administrator.    The title-page is surrounded by an intricate four-element woodcut border with Grecian elements of vases and mythical creatures; the text is printed in several sizes of both roman and italic type with side- and shouldernotes.    Provenance: Sunderland copy with that library's shelf mark (D12.64); armorial bookplate of Francis Pierrepont Barnard designed by Graham Johnston of Edinburgh and Barnard's signature (March 1883) in ink at front. Also present are two bookseller descriptions, one marked "Sunderland Sale" in ink. Barnard (1854–1931) studied at the University of Oxford before teaching medieval archeology at the University of Liverpool and publishing several history, archeology, and numismatic books; his library was sold in 1932 by B.H. Blackwell. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.    Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only two copies in U.S. libraries (UCincinna … [Click Below for Full Description]

From the collection of Hendrik D. L. Vervliet. Paris, Ruberto Stephano Regio Stampatore (Robert Estienne), 1546. First edition, first issue of Alamanni's (1495-1556) didactic poem on husbandry in the tradition of Vergil's Georgica. Alamanni, considered one of the major Italian poets, had to flee to France and became a protégé of King François I. Most of his works were written there, the "Coltivatione" being his best known and most important poem which started a revival of literature on husbandry during the Renaissance. Estienne, in this only Italian work printed by him, in fact the only work in a modern language except French, made use of his fine "grande italique" font as text type. - Ms. name "Ugolini" on title, a few spots, general very light browning, otherwise a wide-margined, well-preserved copy. - STC (French) 6; Adams A-409; Index aurel. 102.049; Mortimer (French) I, 10; Schreiber 88; Hoefer I, 495-96; Kress suppl.

MACHIAVELLI NICCOLã.
Venezia, in casa de' figliuoli di Aldo, 1546. In - 8ø; 248 cc. (penultima bianca e ultima con l'ancora); legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida, titolo manoscritto al dorso (piccola mancanza alla parte inferiore del dorso). Antiche note di possesso al frontespizio ed alcune postille settecentesche ai margini e sul verso dell'ultima carta. Trascurabili segni di tarlo al margine verticale interno che solo verso la fine sfiorano il testo, comunque sempre perfettamente comprensibile. Seconda edizione aldina delle Storie fiorentine di Niccol• Machiavelli, che si raccomanda per il rigoroso scrupolo testuale con cui fu allestita. Dopo le prime due edizioni (romana e fiorentina) del 1532, l'opera fu riproposta a Venezia da Francesco Bindoni e Maffeo Pasini nel 1537 e poi nel 1540 da Paolo Manuzio. La presente ristampa, scrupolosamente ricorretta, di quella prima edizione aldina Š importante anche perch‚ dall'inizio del Concilio di Trento le edizioni di opere del Machiavelli in Italia andarono via via sempre pi-- rarefacendosi.

PAOLO GIOVIO
Tramezzini, 1546. Folio, cc. (4), 102, (4), marca tipografica incisa su legno al frontespizio, ripetuta all'ultima carta. Nota di possesso manoscritta al front. e leggero timbro. Esemplare con ampi margini. Legatura in piena pergamena. Ininfluenti piccoli fori di tarlo. Prima rara edizione di questo catalogo della più importante e nota galleria di ritratti del Rinascimento. Questo bel catalogo a stampa di Giovio dei ritratti di studiosi e scrittori, morti e vivi, non descrive i quadri stessi ma riproduce le iscrizioni che egli aveva progettato per accompagnare i quadri. Questi elogia erano scritti a inchiostro su cartigli di pergamena da apporsi sotto ogni ritratto. L'edizione non è illustrata perché, Giovio spiega nella sua dedica a Ottavio Farnese, copiare i ritratti sarebbe stato difficile e molto di più per contro si sarebbe potuto guadagnare dalla semplice lettura degli elogia (un precoce esempio di storia dell'arte basata sui testi). Questi elogia diventavano inoltre per chi leggeva degli exempla, modelli di condotta eccellente. Giovio collezionò i suoi ritratti raccogliendoli da svariate fonti, non soltanto sollecitandone l'invio tramite lettere, ma anche copiando degli originali in altre collezioni, da monete e medaglie, o commissionandoli direttamente. Alcuni gli furono donati, per esempio Giulio Romano gli lasciò le copie degli allievi di Raffaello dei ritratti di Bramantino nella Stanza di Eliodoro al Vaticano prese prima che venissero cancellati dai nuovi affreschi. In questi vari modi Giovio fu in grado di mettere insieme una straordinaria e incomparabile galle … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

PINCIO, Giano Pirro (fl. 1st half of the 16th cent.)
Venturino Ruffinelli, 1546. THE FIRST IMPORTANT HISTORY OF TRENT AND SURROUNDING REGIONS, INCLUDING SOUTH TYROLTwo parts in one volume, folio. 16, 104, (2 blank) ll. 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. During the war against Venice, in 1509, the territory had been ravaged by Landsknechts returning from a failed expedition against Vicenza. This was followed by pestilences in 1510 and 1512, famines in 1512, 1519 and 1520, and an earthquake in 1521: these grievous happenings spurred the beginning of forms of resistance against Habsburg rule.A true rebellion broke out in 1525, called Bauernkrieg or 'peasants war'. The rebels were led by Michael Gaismayr, who had devised a complex plan of liberation of all the territories of Brixen and Trent … [Click Below for Full Description]

DIOSCORIDES, Pedanius.
1546. USTC 149757 (1 copy); cf. T. Glick, Medieval science, technology and medicine: an encyclopedia, p. 152; not in Baudrier; Durling; SUDOC; WorldCat. Extremely rare pocket edition of Jean Ruel's translation into Latin of Dioscorides's standard work on pharmacology, the most important botanical book up on to the 16th century. This is the first issue with the date on the title-page saying 1546, colophon 1547. Dioscorides (ca. 40-90 AD), a Greek in the service of the Roman Empire, assembled all that was then known concerning the medicinal uses of plants, animals and minerals, adding information from his own experience accompanying the Roman army to Spain, the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere, where he came to know many Persian, Indian and other exotic medicines. Though his work appeared in Latin from 1478 and in the original Greek from 1499, the present translation by Jean Ruel was first published at Paris in 1516. "Often considered a herbal, [it] deals with all three natural kingdoms: plant, mineral and animal. It describes all the substances known to Dioscorides that were used as primary ingredients for medicines, and constitutes an encyclopedia on the topic" (Glick).With owner's inscription on title-page and paste-down. Some minor water stains in the gutter and in the margins of some of the first and last leaves, otherwise in good condition. Binding rebacked, as noted, and in very good condition.

DIOSCORIDES, Pedanius.
- USTC 149757 (1 copy); cf. T. Glick, Medieval science, technology and medicine: an encyclopedia, p. 152; not in Baudrier; Durling; SUDOC; WorldCat. Extremely rare pocket edition of Jean Ruel's translation into Latin of Dioscorides's standard work on pharmacology, the most important botanical book up on to the 16th century. This is the first issue with the date on the title-page saying 1546, colophon 1547. Dioscorides (ca. 40-90 AD), a Greek in the service of the Roman Empire, assembled all that was then known concerning the medicinal uses of plants, animals and minerals, adding information from his own experience accompanying the Roman army to Spain, the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere, where he came to know many Persian, Indian and other exotic medicines. Though his work appeared in Latin from 1478 and in the original Greek from 1499, the present translation by Jean Ruel was first published at Paris in 1516. "Often considered a herbal, [it] deals with all three natural kingdoms: plant, mineral and animal. It describes all the substances known to Dioscorides that were used as primary ingredients for medicines, and constitutes an encyclopedia on the topic" (Glick).With owner's inscription on title-page and paste-down. Some minor water stains in the gutter and in the margins of some of the first and last leaves, otherwise in good condition. Binding rebacked, as noted, and in very good condition.

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]

FRACASTORO, GIROLAMO. - [FOUNDING MODERN EPIDEMIOLOGY]
Venice, 1546. 4to. Contemporary full vellum. Neatly recased, endpapers renewed. A (mostly fairly faint) damp stain throughout and a marginal worm tract, far from affecting text. Inner blank margin of title-page re-enforced. Some contemporary marginal annotations. Woodcut title-vignette and woodcut printer's device to final blank verso. (4), 76, (4) ff. ¶ Scarce first edition of this milestone in the history of medicine, the foundational work of modern epidemiology, which was the first to state the germ theory of infection.This epochal work "establishes Fracastoro as one of the foremost scientists of all time, and earns him the title of founder of modern epidemiology. "De contagione" contains the first scientifically reasoned statement of the true nature of infection, contagion, and the germ theory of disease and is the foundation of all modern views on the nature of infectuous diseases... Fracastoro's influence is also clearly reflected in the work of such modern scientists as Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, and Robert Koch as they broadened and furthered man's knowledge of infectuous diseases." (Heirs of Hippocrates). "This book represents a landmark in the development of our knowledge of infectuous disease. Fracastorus was the first to state the germ theory of infection. He recognized typhus and suggested the contagiousness of tuberculosis. Haeser describes him as the "founder of scientific epidemology"." (Garrison & Morton).Faracstoro's theories on contagions and epidemics were far ahead of their time, but they were still widely respected. The magnificent theories here con … [Click Below for Full Description]

AGRICOLA, Georgius.
Basel: Hieronymus Froben, 1546. First edition. Hardcover. An exceptionally fine copy, completely untouched in its original binding, of 'the first handbook of modern systematic mineralogy' (Grolier/Horblit 2a). "Georgius Agricola (latinized from the German 'Georg Bauer') became interested in the theoretical and practical aspects of mining, metallurgy and geology after being appointed town doctor of Joachimsthal, a silver-mining community on the east side of the Erzgebirge mountains in what is now Czechoslovakia. He published his first work on mining, <em>Bermannns sive de re metallica dialogus, </em>in 1530, and followed it sixteen years later with this collection of five treatises on geology and metallurgy, including the first work on physical geology ("De ortu & causis subterraneorum"); the first systematic mineralogy ("De natura fossilium"); a work on subterranean waters and gases ("De natura eorum quae effluunt ex terra"); a treatise on references to minerals and mining in classical history ("Dc veteribus et novis metallis"); and a reprint of <em>Bermannnus. </em>"De natura fossilium," after <em>De re metallica, </em>must be considered Agricola's most important work; in it he rejected the traditional arbitrary alphabetical listing of "fossils" (i.e., stony substances dug from the earth), and attempted to classify them according to their physical properties" (Norman).</p> <p>In <em>De Natura Fossilium,</em> Agricola rejected many myths associated with gems, and the system of classification that is inferred from his writings exhibits a degree of generalization not found i … [Click Below for Full Description]
