BOIARDO Matteo Maria
2 tomi in un volume in-4 (mm.219x145), ff.208: ff.154, (1, su due, manca ultimo foglio bianco), carattere corsivo su due colonne per pagina. Ottima legatura moderna in piena pergamena rigida, ornata in oro: doppia bordura a filetti e fregi agli angoli sui piatti, dorso con titolo e ricchi fregi. Impresa tipografica dello Scotto sui titoli delle due parti. Nel testo vi sono 102 belle figure in silografia su un terzo di pagina, nonché gran numero di grandi iniziali figurate. Terza edizione dell'Orlando Innamorato di Boiardo (conte di Scandiano, 1441-1494) rivisto da L. Domenichi, e aumentata dai tre Libri di Nicolo degli Agostini (la prima venne impressa da G.Scotto nel 1545). Fondamentale edizione del più importante romanzo cavalleresco italiano, opera in ottava rima la cui prima parziale edizione (libri I e II) fu di Reggio Emilia 1482-83. Gli studiosi cinquecenteschi ritennero il poema non perfetto nella forma come meritava l'importanza del testo letterario, e quindi circolò nelle ristampe curate e riviste dal Berni e dal Domenichi. La presente è molto rara. Bell'esemplare.

Johann STUMPF (1500-1578)
Rara carta geografica dell'Italia orientata con il nord a sinistra tratta dalla "Chronica" dello Stumpf, il primo atlante svizzero, pubblicato a Zurigo nel 1548 da Christoffel Froschover e successivamente ristampato nel 1552. La piccola mappa non presenta margine graduato o scale grafiche. Curiosa è la posizione della città di Brescia posizionata sulle Alpi vicino all'Istria e a nord di Trento lontanissima da Mantova e Bergamo. La carta presenta affinità cartografiche con i modelli del Coppo, Rosselli e Vavassori. Xilografia, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Rara. R. Borri "L'Italia nelle antiche carte..." (2011), scheda 34 (edizione del 1551).

Simeoni Gabriele
1548. In-8 (15,2 cm) 113 c. (15) c. Numerose incisioni nel testo. Ritratto dell'autore in cornice ovale al frontespizio e il motto: Informa sed sydere fallor. Numerosi capilettera figurati, tavola genealogia de Visconti, dei Gonzaga, degli Estensi. Col privilegii del Sommo Pontefice Dell'Illustrissimo Senato Vinitiano del Eccellentissimo S. Duca di Fiorenza: e d'altri Principi per Anni. X Mezza pelle con titolo inciso al dorso. Esemplare rifilato. Collazionato e completo. Simeoni, Gabriele Letterato fiorentino, filosofo, poeta, storico, astrologo e traduttore di latino (Ovidio) e dal francese. Nato nel 1509 e morto forse nel 1576. Comin da Trino. Tipografo originario di Trino, attivo a Venezia. Non se ne conosce il cognome; non ci sono prove che fosse parente dei Giolito. Fu uno dei tipografi più attivi di Venezia alla metà del XVI s. e stampò per un gran numero di editori, le cui marche gli sono state spesso attribuite; nel primo periodo della sua attività ebbe problemi con la giustizia per stampa di testi eterodossi. Morì dopo il 1573 o in quello stesso anno, senza lasciare eredi; secondo Veneziani la sua bottega e il suo materiale tipografico vennero rilevati da Giacomo Vidali.

Alessandro Brucioli, Venezia. In-4 (205 x 140 mm.). pp. (40), 1068 (numerate romanamente), legatura in piena pergamena con unghie (sguardie rinnovate). Ex libris allegorico di privato possessore applicato al contropiatto; altro ex libris manuale sbiadito al frontespizio. Capilettera abitati, alcuni a fondo nero. Dedica del Brucioli a Leone Strozzi (questo primo quaderno si presenta più corto di tre millimetri). Bell'esemplare, pulito e marginoso per il resto. Prima edizione della volgarizzazione del Brucioli, che già nel 1543 aveva "corretto con somma diligentia" e poi mandato alle stampe il volgarizzamento landiniano. Come è noto, l'estrema rarità di questa edizione proviene dall'interdetto che i fratelli Alessandro e Francesco Brucioli, tipografi, patirono nel 1548 per la taccia di simpatie protestanti, con conseguente accusa di eresia e chiusura dell'impresa tipografica. L'intera opera del Brucioli venne posta definitivamente all'indice con decreto dell'Offizio del 1554. Bibliografia: STC, 1527. Adams P-1592. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"A very convenient edition of Stevin's works, and probably the one which is used by most scholars" (Sarton).The work is divided into six parts, the first containing Stevin's educational work l'Arithmétique, the second three of his works on cosmography, geography and astronomy (translations of Driehouchandel, Eertclootschrift and Hemelloop), the third a translation of his Meetdaet on geometry, the fourth a translation of Weeghconst on weights, hydrostatics, etc., the fifth a translation of Deursichtighe on optics and perspective, and the sixth his treatises on fortification.With owner's inscription on flyleaf. Some wormholes in the outer margins of the first few quires and a stain in the lower margins of the first part and in the top margins of the second half, otherwise still good.

Flores, Juan de (Fiore, Giovanni di)
appresso Gabriel Giolito de'Ferrari, Vinegia (Venezia), 1548. 12vo, 40 ff. Printer's device on title page and woodcut initial letters, 13 blanks at the beginning and 15 to the end. Some light browning. Bound in old full vellum, with inked title on spine. Very nice and crisp copy. Second edition Giolithina, rare, of the vulgarization of the Historia de Cerisel y Mirabella with the dispute of Torellas y Braçayda (Seville, 1524), work of the diplomat and writer Juan de Flores (Seville, 1470 ca-1525 ca) destined to wide luck in all the course of the Renaissance. The novella, fully inscribed in the genre of the sentimental novel defined and studied by Menéndez y Pelayo, is influenced by Bocconi echoes and was widely used as a source of diegetics by various writers: from Ariosto for the episode of the Orlando of the Furioso, from Lope de Vega for La ley ejecutada, from John Fletcher for Women pleas'd and from Scudéry for Le prince déguisé. Bongi, I, 212: Rare edition no less than the other of 1543, hence it differs in that the dedicatory of the translator has been omitted.n Grisel and Mirabella, third-person narration is combined with debates that sustain the thematic structure and provide different points of view. The fate of the two lovers of the love fable depends on the result of a dialectical and public debate maintained by representatives of each sex. Mirabella, the only daughter of the King of Scotland, falls in love with her beauty to the knights of the kingdom, who die in the duels they elicit in order to obtain the love of the princess. The King, in fear of losing honor … [Click Below for Full Description]

STEVIN, Simon.
Bierens de Haan 4584; Sarton, "Simon Stevin of Bruges (1548-1620)" in: Isis XXI, No. 2 (1934), pp. 267-268; Devreese & Vanden Berghe, "Magic is no magic" the wonderful world of Simon Stevin, passim; Dijksterhuis, Simon Stevin XIII; for Stevin: DSB XIII, pp. 47-51. First edition of the collected mathematical works (in French) of the renowned Dutch mathematician and engineer Simon Stevin. It was Stevin's most widely distributed publication and instrumental in propagating his ideas outside the Netherlands. They are here corrected, partly translated, enlarged and commented upon by Albert Girard (1595-1632), who was a notable mathematician himself. "A very convenient edition of Stevin's works, and probably the one which is used by most scholars" (Sarton).The work is divided into six parts, the first containing Stevin's educational work l'Arithmétique, the second three of his works on cosmography, geography and astronomy (translations of Driehouchandel, Eertclootschrift and Hemelloop), the third a translation of his Meetdaet on geometry, the fourth a translation of Weeghconst on weights, hydrostatics, etc., the fifth a translation of Deursichtighe on optics and perspective, and the sixth his treatises on fortification.With owner's inscription on flyleaf. Some wormholes in the outer margins of the first few quires and a stain in the lower margins of the first part and in the top margins of the second half, otherwise still good. Most sewing supports broken, but the binding is still good. [Attributes: First Edition]

ALEXANDER OF APHRODISIAS [APHRODISIENSIS]. - [THE HERVET-EDITION OF ALEXANDER'S "QUAESTIONES"]
Basel, (Iohnnes Oporinus, 1548 - on colophon). 8vo. Contemporary full limp vellum. A bit of soiling and light brownspotting to title-page, otherwise very nice and clean. The printer's name has been removed from the colophon, causing two small holes, which have been neatly repaired from verso. Two small holes corresonding to these to the second-last leaf, causing loss of a couple of letters. All in all a very nice copy. Woodcut initials. (16), 297, (6 - Life of Aristotle) pp. ¶ The scarce first edition of leading French Humanist Catholic Gentian Hervet's important translation of Alexander's hugely influential "Quaestiones", presumably with this fourth part (which is not the "De Fato" as in other Renaissance editions) for the first time in print. Hervet's edition of Alexander's "Questiones" came to have a profound influence on the development of Renaissance Aristotelianism. The "Questiones" had appeared earlier, e.g. in 1541, and were by no means unknown to Renaissance thinkers at the time, but Hervet was an authority of a certain character, which meant that his edition was both read in a certain light and preferred by a great deal of thinkers. Furthermore, it seems that the 4th part, being 30 answers to the traditional 69 questions, here appears for the first time in print, making this a very important edition. In addition to the first three parts, it became customary to add a fourth part to Alexander's "Questiones", but that traditional fourth part was his "De Fato", and not as here the 30 solutions. It is worth noting that Hervet had in fact already translated Alexander's … [Click Below for Full Description]

Large vignette on t-p with personification of the goddess Fortune (a nude female body reclining on a dolphin at sea and holding a swelled sail). Italic, a little Roman. Capital spaces with small guide-letters. A few handwritten maniculae. T-p soiled, wormholes and tracking slightly affecting the lower inside part of the front cover, foot margin of t-p and first two leaves without text loss. Pages lightly browned to margins, rare light waterstains. Ink title on spine, rubbed caps, slightly damaged. In early limp vellum with yapp edges, remains of ties. Felice Figliucci (1518-1595) was an Italian humanist, philosopher, and theologian. Born in Siena, he studied philosophy at the University of Padua, where he learned Platonism and Aristotelianism, joining these two thoughts as in the humanistic tradition established by Marsilio Ficino and Pico della Mirandola, which effected the sixteenth-century Christian Neoplatonism. He devoted a good deal of his carrier to the edition of Ficino’s works. He was for a time in the service of Cardinal G. M. Ciocchi Del Monte, afterwards Pope Julius III. Figliucci promoted the Tuscan language and fostered its use in the translation of classics, considering it no less worthy than Latin. He attended the Council of Trent, which was transferred to Bologna in 1547, giving him so the opportunity to visit Padua frequently and work on his Tradottione, which was a present … [Click Below for Full Description]
