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 presen … [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.<br><br>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). <br><br>"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).<br><br>Faracstoro's theories on contagions and epidemics were far ahead of their time, but they were still widely respected. The magni … [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]

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.

CORDUS, Valerius.
Adams, C2630; cf. Schelenz, Gesch. pharmazie, pp. 414-416; Voet 1023-1024; for Cordus: DSB III, pp. 413-415. Fourth Plantin edition of the first official city pharmacopoeia by Valerius Cordus, first published posthumously in Nürnberg in 1546 and in 1568 for the first time by Plantin, greatly improved by the Flemish botanist and apothecary Peeter van Coudenberghe (ca. 1517-1599). The present edition is the second to be edited by the great botanist Matthias de Lobel (1538-1616) and the first to include Guillaume Rondelet's De theriaca tractatus.The city of Nürnberg adopted the first edition as the official standard that all city apothecaries were required to follow. The book's influence went far beyond Nürnberg, however, for numerous publishers in several countries produced dozens of editions in the original Latin and in German, Dutch and French translations. Many cities, especially in Germany and the Low Countries, either adopted it as their own standard or used it as a model to write their own pharmacopoeia.With old owners' inscriptions on title-page. Title-page slightly thumbed and some occasional spots. Spine slightly worn. Overall a good copy.

Guevara, Antonio de
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.

ERASMUS, Desiderius
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[rasmu … [Click Below for Full Description]

BELON, Pierre.
1546. Ibrahim-Hilmy, p. 61; Nissen, ZBI 304; cf. Atabey 93; Blackmer 115. First edition of Belon's Observations, the fruit of his extensive travels in Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria from 1546 to 1549. Piere Belon (ca. 1518-1564), famous for his works on ornithology, was attached as naturalist to the French embassy to the Ottoman Empire, aimed at convincing Suleiman the Magnificent to join forces against Charles V. Unlike many contemporary travel writers, Belon does not elaborate on extraordinary travel adventures, but rather limits himself to detailed observations on mammals, fish, snakes, birds, plants and the manners and customs of the peoples he encountered, only commenting on what he had witnessed himself. The narrative includes valuable observations on Mount Athos, the pyramids and mummies of Egypt, Mount Sinai, Damascus and the Ottoman culture (with an account of the consumption of opium). With contemporary owner's inscription and annotations. Title-page slightly shaved and somewhat dirty, the folding map with light waterstains. In very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

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.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.
