        Icones Historiarum Veteris Testamenti, Ad vivum expressæ, extremáque diligentia entendatiores factæ, Gallicis in expositione homœoteleutis, ac versuum ordinibus (qui priùs turbati, ac impares) suo numero restitutis

      Lyon: Jean Frellon, 1547. Small quarto, modern full dark brown morocco, paneled in blind with gilt decorations to boards, raised bands, oval crimson morocco spine label lettered in gilt, speckled edges. 52 leaves, unnumbered. Printer?'s device on title page, two woodcut initials, ninety-four woodcuts after designs by Hans Holbein, four medallion woodcuts of the evangelists by an unknown hand. Text in Roman and italic types, with a few lines in Greek. Occasional light soiling and toning, closed tear to leaf N3 skillfully repaired. The fifth edition of Hans Holbein?'s illustrations for the Old Testament, the first of two 1547 editions printed by Jean Frellon. In the early 1520s, the Trechsel brothers, printers in Lyon, asked the young artist Hans Holbein to produce a series of illustrations for the Old Testament. Busy with travel and competing projects, Holbein finally turned to the task in 1529 and 1530, producing ninety woodcut designs; proofs of the images appear in a 1531 Bible published by Christophe Froschauer. In the 1538 first edition of the series, eighty-eight of Holbein?'s Old Testament woodcuts were joined by four smaller blocks from his Dance of Death, depicting events from the Book of Genesis. A second edition appeared in 1539, now including all ninety Old Testament woodcuts, with quatrains in French by Gilles Corrozet; this version was reprinted in 1543, and again (twice) in 1547. The Frellons also printed a Latin and Spanish edition of the series in 1543, while two folio Bibles (1538 and 1544) printed in Lyon made additional use of the Holbein illustrations. Holbein?'s Old Testament woodcuts, together with his Dance of Death, stand as one of the great achievements in the history of book illustration. Drawn with startling directness, the figures of Ruth, Job, Judith, and Jonah appear in mid-gesture, engaged in conversation, as though captured unaware. Giulia Bartrum, in German Renaissance Prints, observes of these woodcuts: ?"rarely has such an impression of depth been conveyed so convincingly on such a small scale. The success of these designs in this respect is a measure of Holbein?'s deep understanding of Italian Renaissance art of this period which was far in advance of his contemporaries in northern Europe.?" The cutting of the Old Testament designs was long attributed to the great formschneider Hans Lützelberger, who had cut most of the Dance of Death blocks, but since he died in 1526, this is no longer considered possible. Veit Specklin is now considered the most likely cutter, though a few of the blocks (such as Joel and Zachariah) are comparatively crude, and suggest the work of a lesser hand. Frellon issued two editions of these woodcuts in 1547, printed from different settings of type. This copy is from the printing Mortimer identifies as the first. On the title-page, three of the five lines of text following the word ?"testamenti?" end in a hyphen. (In the second 1547 edition, all five have clean line breaks.) This copy also appears to be an early state, not previously noted, with the word ?"emendatiores?" on the title-page misprinted as ?"entendatiores?"; the error appears to have been quickly corrected on the press. The four medallion woodcuts of the evangelists, grouped on a single page, are the work of an unknown artist: they appear for the first time in the 1547 editions. Mortimer (French) 281; Fairfax Murray (French) 244. A near-fine copy of a landmark book.

        Modus tenendi unum Hundredum sive Curiam de Recordo

      William Myddleton, London 1547 - 8vo. 14 unnumbered ll. A8 B6 lacking final blanks. Black letter, attractive title with Royal arms between white on black woodcut borders; upper foliage with Puck (?); lower foliage with man fighting a dragon, another similar to upper on verso of last, large white on black initial. C.19 library stamp on blank verso of title and blank outer margin of last, a very good crisp copy in C19 panelled calf by Harley of London, a.e.r. In the middle ages the hundred was a subdivision of a county chiefly important for its local court of justice. It had jurisdiction for trespass, covenant and debt if less than forty shillings and in these civil cases the freeholders of the hundred acted as judges. At the twice yearly full court where the criminal business was transacted the Sheriff or Lord of the hundred was sole judge. These arrangements are credited to Alfred by William of Malmesbury but may well have existed earlier. Certainly from Alfred’s time until the C.16 the hundred court was the most important place of redress for the common people. However, the monetary value of its jurisdiction was not enlarged and due to the rampant inflation caused by overspending Tudor governments its practical importance declined rapidly in the later C16, though it lingered on until the legal reforms of the Victorians. It is significant that this is the last edition of the standard and probably only work on hundred Court procedure; its obsolescence precluded reprinting. The text is in Norman-French notwithstanding the Latin title. Although it ran through a number of editions from the 1520’s onwards, all are now rare, many known only by a single copy. Myddleton succeeded Redman in his house by St. Dunstan’s after his widow’s remarriage and like Redman produced a significant number of legal texts - of which this is one of the rarest.

      Seb. Gryphium, Lyon 1547 - FINE LYONESE BINDING 16mo. pp 517 (xxv), final 3ll. blank. Italic letter, printer's graffia device on t.p. woodcut initials, ruled in red throughout. Light age gilting, with an oil stain to blank inner margins in places. C17 autograph 'Thiballier' at foot of t.p. A good clean copy in contemp. dark brown calf, slightly glazed, covers with double ruled borders gilt enclosing intricate interlacing ribbons, tooled in gold with gouges and dots, spine with three raised and two semi-raised bands, gilt hatched and dotted, gilt diagonal line borders indented at head and tail, a.e.g. Lower joint cracked, modest wear to one compartment and band at joint, small surface crack to lower corner, gilt somewhat faded but generally good. A handsome little mid-C16 French binding, elaborately decorated in an unusual perhaps transitional style, neither pre-fanfare nor arabesque but owing something to each. The printer Gryphius had his own bindery where a number of his standard publications were relatively richly bound, presumably to customers' orders. It is likely this is an example of the work of that atelier. The Thiballier family, seigneurs de Toury and Thurelles, were French provincial nobility often in royal service. The owner of the volume, by date, may have been Francois Thiballier, leader of the first official French expedition to the Indies, mounted by Colbert in 1670. Two years later it arrived at Trincomali (via Madagascar and La Réunion) where Francis died suddenly, aged 50. Not in BM. STC Fr. Adams V110 (UL copy only, listed as a 'binding').

        Isolario

      Paolo Manuzio for Federico Torresani, Venice 1547 - FIRST ACCOUNT OF PIZARRO IN PERU. Folio, ff. [10], 74. Roman letter; title in black and red with printer’s device within elegant floral border with dolphins; few decorated and historiated initials; 120 woodcut maps, of which two full-page, eight double-page, one printed upside-down at f. xliir; tiny minor worm hole to title and first two leaves, a few spots at head of first double-page map, light water stain towards outer margin of one leaf. A very good, well-margined copy in early pasteboard; all edges mottled; two early ms shelf marks to title and price inscription to rear pastedown. Third, most correct and complete edition of this curious and informative atlas of islands, first published in Venice in 1528. This is the first and only Aldine edition, issued at the expense of Federico Torresani, Aldus’s brother-in-law and younger son of Aldus’s partner Andrea Torresani. Despite not being presented as a product of the main branch of the Aldine press, it retains the accuracy and the typically elegant layout of the familial output. Unusually for Aldine books, it also enriched by numerous illustrations taken directly from the blocks used in the first edition, but appear particularly bright and neat in this copy. It may well be one of the last collaborations between Federico and Aldus’s main heir, Paolo, who remained in touch with his uncle even after the family quarrel and the consequent split of the partnership between the Manuzio and the Torresani about 1540. Benedetto Bordone (c.1460-1530) was an eclectic Italian artist of the Venetian Renaissance. Born in Padua, he was a skilled miniaturist, editor and cartographer. He is very likely to be the artist behind the exquisite and ground-breaking illustrations of the Aldine Hypnerotomachia. One of his two sons was the famous scholar Giulio Cesare Scaligero, who later made up his surname claiming to be affiliated with the noble Italian family of Della Scala. His most famous work was the Isolario, accomplished a few year before his death. It consists of a broad illustrated survey of the world’s islands and peninsulas as they were known in the early sixteenth century, including learned mythical and historical remarks, drawn especially from Greek and Roman authorities. The book opens with Bordone’s dedication to his nephew, who had travelled the world on board the Venetian and Spanish fleets, probably acting as a military physician. Isolario is an intriguing mix of pioneering intuition and folkloristic belief. In it, Bordone provides the first printed map of Japan, as an island named ‘Ciampagu’, and the earliest depiction of the globe as an oval (this was later developed by Karl Mollweide into the model familiar to us). The final Copia delle Lettere de Perfetto della India la Nova Spagna detta alla Cesarea Maesta rescritte offers the earliest printed account of Pizzarro’s arrival in Peru and it is not included in the princeps. Twelve of the illustrations relate to America, including a rather distorted New World with the Northern portion of South America and the North America as a huge island named as ‘Land of the worker,’ probably hinting at the growing slave trading in the area. Alongside the maps of Western Europe, Eastern Mediterranean Sea, British Isles and Sicily, Bordone also drew detailed plans of Venice and some of its lagoon islands, as well as of the lavish capital city of the Aztec empire (Tenochtitlan, modern Mexico City) before Cortez razed it to the ground in 1521. Finally, one can find sketchy depictions of: the Canaries; Madagascar and Zanzibar; Java and Sumatra (as ‘Iava minore’); Ceylon (‘Taprobana’); Cuba, Guadalupe, Jamaica, Venezuela and Brazil; Thailanda, mistakenly thought to be an island called Lochac. Far east, Bordone includes, for the first time in print, two legendary isles, one exclusively inhabited by women (‘Imangla’), the other by men (‘Inebila’). Not in Brunet or Graesse. BM STC It., 120.

Folio (approx 12-1/2 x 8 -1/4 inches). Magnificent copy of this fine Venetian edition of the early Imperial historian Valerius Maximus , who flourished in the reign of Tiberius (and to whom he dedicates his book). The work itself is a curiously arranged compilation of historical anecdotes taken from various sources (Roman and Greek) to illustrate a particular theme, mostly moral or philosophical, and its historical value has never been highly regarded. Nonetheless, Valerius's prose has attracted the attention of many, and has been described as embodying a rhetoric in transition from Classical to Silver Latin. According to the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica: "direct and simple statement is eschewed and novelty pursued at any price. The barrier between the diction of poetry and that of prose is broken down; the uses of words are strained; monstrous metaphors are invented; there are startling contrasts, dark innuendoes and highly coloured epithets; the most unnatural variations are played upon the artificial scale of grammatical and rhetorical figures of speech ... " Valerius' book, nevertheless, was widely used as a schoolbook in the Middle Ages. Numerous incunable editions were printed; the first Aldine edition in 1502. This fine Venetian edition is by the printer Ruffinelli, who printed, among other important vernacular texts, the first edition of Euclid in Italian.

      Rob. Stephanus, Lutetiae [Paris] 1547 - (6½" x 4"). Pp. 740, [44] index. Woodcut Estienne device on title, text in italic letter. Later 18th century full crimson morocco binding, sides with triple gilt fillets, spine ornately gilt in compartments between raised bands, gilt inner dentelles, marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Light wear to extremities, spine gilt a little rubbed, occasional light marginal foxing to text, narrow strip cut away from upper margin of title, not affecting letterpress (neatly repaired), but overall a nice clean copy in an elegant and well-preserved binding. First published in 1531, Erasmus' "Apophthegmata" (or "winged words") was a collection of wise sayings and anecdotes from famous Greek and Roman philosophers and statesmen, designed to enhance the speech of orators and instruct young scholars on the fine points of Latin style. A work of Erasmus' later years, the "Apophthegmata" was intended as a continuation of his "Adagia". It was exceedingly popular in the 16th century and often reprinted, although there is only one Estienne edition. BM STC French p. 153. Renouard 70: 18. Size: Small Octavo [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Basel 1547 - Leonhart Fuchs (1501-1567) Illustrated plate De Historia Stirpium (single sheet) Basel: 1547 Hand-colored woodcut engraving 14" x 9 ½" paper size 10 1/2” x 17 1/2” framed Herbals are books containing the names and descriptions of plants and their medicinal properties. The herbal had declined during the Middle Ages, western European herbals of that era were based on the works of classical authors, in particular Pedanios Dioscorides, the ancient Greek writer who was the father of medical botany. This would change with the publication of Leonhart Fuchs’ illustrated herbal De historia stirpium commentarii insigne. The plan and organization of the herbal was entirely original with Fuchs, although the work did include some material derived from his Classical predecessors.Fuchs’De historia stirpium represented an impressive first step from medieval superstition to modern botany. Leonhart Fuchs, a German doctor of medicine, deplored the terrible state of medical practice during his lifetime. Most doctors of his time relied on information from illiterate apothecaries, whom were, in turn, depending upon the peasants who gathered roots and herbs for them. Fuchs realized that patients could easily be poisoned rather than cured because of improper identification of plants. Therefore he compiled this herbal to improve the German pharmacopoeia with a reference of accurate illustrations and identifications of medicinal herbs in both German and Latin. The result was a book of great splendor, without equal among sixteenth-century herbals. It is illustrated with 511 hand-colored woodcut figures, all original and depicted from life. Fuchs looked to living plants for his illustrations, a departure from common practice at that time, but then “improved” them by removing any natural imperfections and by showing a plant in the flowering and fruiting stages simultaneously. These figures established a standard of botanical illustration that has lasted to the present day, and more than 100 species were illustrated for the first time (including 12 New World plants such as maize, kidney bean, chili pepper, cactus, and tobacco). During Fuchs’ lifetime, the herbal and its various abridgements went through 39 printings in Latin, German, French, Spanish and Dutch.
