1549. Girone il cortese di Luigi Alamanni al christianissimo, et invittissimo re Arrigo Secondo. Nuovamente riveduto et corretto con altre agiunte del autore medesimo. In Vinegia, per Comin da Trino di Monferrato, seconda edizione 1549 Carte: [8], 185, [1] Testatine e capilettera figurati Copertina rigida in mezza pergamena non coeva - Testo in italiano. Condizioni molto buone. Legatura e sguardie rifatte. Pagine rifilate. Abrasione al frontespizio con parziale lesione della cornice figurata. Il poema segue le avventure di Girone, eroe bretone, e si differenzia dagli scritti del suo tempo in quanto narra di un unico personaggio, re-cavaliere. Si propone come un poema epico cavalleresco che avrebbe dovuto rivaleggiare con quello dell'Ariosto.

HERODIAN, of Syria. c. 170- c. 240
Basle: H. Petri, 1549. CONTEMPORARY DARK CALF (neatly restored), blind-ruled frames, gilt corner fleurons, gilt flowers and stars in the center, gilt stars on the spine. ANNOTATED THROUGHOUT BY JACQUES-AUGUSTE DE THOU AT AGE TWENTY. He (1553-1617) acquired this copy in 1573, a transitional year spent in Paris, between his legal studies and his Italian travels.  Among the earliest purchases he made for his library, this book offered a template for his life's work, A History of His Own Times (1604-9): "an unsurpassable model...the heir of ancient historiography" (DLLF, tr.). It covers the sixty-four years from 1543 to 1607, marked by unrest and civil war in France.  Herodian, a Roman historian who wrote in Greek, also chose a tumultuous period - the fifty-eight years from 180 to 238. He recounts the reigns of seventeen Emperors, many assassinated. Both men were eye witnesses to some of the events they record.  DE THOU MARKED UP THE GREEK TEXT ON EVERY PAGE, underscoring words and passages as mnemonics and glossing the margins with citations to secondary sources. These reveal his reading habits, his developing sense of historical method (comparing differing accounts of the same events) and the books he had to hand while reading Herodian, whom de Thou credits with informing his views (History, Book LXVII).  This copy passed with the rest of de Thou's library to his heirs (Catalogus (1704) I: 292), the marquis de Ménars, Cardinal Gaston de Rohan (1674-1749) and Charles de Rohan, prince de Soubise (1715-87; characteristic manuscript shelf mark appears at … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small 8vo (16 x 10 cm). With the imprint in the base of an elaborate woodcut on the title-page, with Ferrari's motto, initials and phoenix device, a different woodcut phoenix device on last page, and 21 woodcut pictorial initials (3 series) plus 1 repeat. Italian sheepskin parchment (ca. 1700?). 63, [1] ll. First and only edition of six Italian essays on painting and sculpture by the many-sided Italian writer Anton Francesco Doni. Before the essays he gives a list of the painters and sculptors he discusses in the book and after them the texts of his letters to Italian painters, sculptors and other notable persons. The extensive index that concludes the work includes the various subjects discussed. The first five essays concern the principles and practices of sculpture and painting as art, also discussing details of techniques and materials, such as the manner of achieving the brightest colours in the mixing of oil paints. But the sixth gives advice on dealing with patronage, though also discussing the relation between sculpture and painting and the proportions of the human head. It has been suggested that this last essay may have been written by Doni's friend Baccio Bandinelli (1493-1560).Book and binding in very good condition, with only some minor and mostly marginal spotting.

NICANDER of Colophon and Jean de GORRIS.
Alexipharmaca. Io. Gorraeo Parisiensi medico interprete.Paris, Michel de Vascosan, 1549. 8vo. Contemporary sheepskin parchment. 70, [1] ll. First Paris edition of a work on antidotes, by the Greek poet and physician Nicander of Colophon, (fl. second century BC). "Nicander wrote at least 20 works, of which two survive: Theriaca on poisonous creatures, with remedies against their stings and bites, and Alexipharmaca on antidotes to poisons. Both are indebted to Apollodorus" (Wilson). The present edition gives the text in Greek with the Latin translation, along with annotations by the Parisian pharmacist Jean de Gorris (1505-1577). "After a poem addressed to Protagoras of Cyzicus, [the Alexipharmaca] presents 22 substances and entities - animal, vegetable, and mineral - that are fatal or harmful to human beings. Some of the more notorious toxic substances known to antiquity are included: hemlock, aconite, opium, henbane and blister beetle. In each case, the poet first describes the symptoms produced by the poison, and then the antidotes" (Wilson).With bookplates of the Trotter family of Mortonhall and F.B. Lorch, and early owner's and auction inscriptions. Bookblock almost completely detached from binding, with a large waterstain in the upper right corner and slightly smudged margins, otherwise in good condition. Bird 1727; Durling 3338; cf. N. Wilson, Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece (2006), pp. 503-505.

ALCIATO, Andrea.
Los emblemas ... traducidos en rhimas Españolas. ...Lyon, Guillaume Rouille [printed by Macé Bonhomme], 1549. 8vo (18.5 x 12.5 cm). With an elaborate woodcut architectural frame; 210 emblems (200 with woodcuts); nearly every page in one of about 34 different richly decorated woodcut frames. Early 18th-century (Spanish?) sheepskin parchment. 256, [6] pp. Rouille issue of the first Spanish edition of the first emblem book, by the legal scholar Andrea Alciato (1492-1550) in Milan, first published in Latin at Augsburg in 1531 with only 104 emblems (97 with woodcuts), but greatly expanded up to the author's death. The present edition has more emblems and more woodcuts than any earlier edition, also more than the French and Italian editions by the same publishers in the same year and more than the competing editions by De Tournes. It brings the work nearly to its definitive form. Alciato not only produced a work that was to continue through hundreds of editions over the centuries, he invented a whole new genre, the emblem book, which combines allegorical images with a brief motto that aims to give the core of the idea and explanatory text (here in verse), the combination of text and image intended to give more meaning to both and to encourage contemplation by the reader.In most respects, the present Spanish edition follows the 1548 Latin edition but Bernardino Daza who translated it into Spanish claimed to have followed a printed copy with corrections in Alciato's hand, making the present Spanish text an essential source for the author's intentions, rather than just a translation … [Click Below for Full Description]

First Edition, PRINTER'S PRESENTATION, one of only five illustrated books produced by Robert Estienne.

Basle: H. Petri, 1549. CONTEMPORARY DARK CALF (neatly restored), blind-ruled frames, gilt corner fleurons, gilt flowers and stars in the center, gilt stars on the spine. ANNOTATED THROUGHOUT BY JACQUES-AUGUSTE DE THOU AT AGE TWENTY. He (1553-1617) acquired this copy in 1573, a transitional year spent in Paris, between his legal studies and his Italian travels.  Among the earliest purchases he made for his library, this book offered a template for his life's work, A History of His Own Times (1604-9): "an unsurpassable model...the heir of ancient historiography" (DLLF, tr.). It covers the sixty-four years from 1543 to 1607, marked by unrest and civil war in France.  Herodian, a Roman historian who wrote in Greek, also chose a tumultuous period - the fifty-eight years from 180 to 238. He recounts the reigns of seventeen Emperors, many assassinated. Both men were eye witnesses to some of the events they record.  DE THOU MARKED UP THE GREEK TEXT ON EVERY PAGE, underscoring words and passages as mnemonics and glossing the margins with citations to secondary sources. These reveal his reading habits, his developing sense of historical method (comparing differing accounts of the same events) and the books he had to hand while reading Herodian, whom de Thou credits with informing his views (History, Book LXVII).  This copy passed with the rest of de Thou's library to his heirs (Catalogus (1704) I: 292), the marquis de Ménars, Cardinal Gaston de Rohan (1674-1749) and Charles de Rohan, prince de Soubise (1715-87; characteristic manuscript shelf mark appears at … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bible in Greek.
Paris: Robert Estienne, 1549. Two volumes. 3 1/2 x 5 inches. (8.7 x 12.5 cm). 528, 359, (3) pages--all lightly ruled in red. Ca. 1800 gold-tooled straight grain red morocco, with marbled pastedowns, all edges gilt. Spines a bit darkened, joints a bit rubbed, contents near fine. Protected by a cloth folding case. The first book printed in Claude Garamond's "cicero" font, the smallest of the three sizes of the "grecs du roi" types--one of the finest ever cut (Proctor and Scholderer). With foliated initials and head pieces; Estienne's device on both title pages and a different device on the final page. A very handsome book. A note written in French and tipped to the free end paper speaks not only of the rarity and preciousness, but also of the superb typography. Provenance: Count Dmitry Petrovich Boutourlin, an outstanding c.19 Russian book collector and Librarian of the Imperial Russian Library. His personal library held an almost complete collection of Aldine editions and a complete collection of books from the Bodoni Press. (His armorial bookplate on the pastedown has a much later name in "R. H. Cheney E. C.") A manuscript note in French is tipped to the fly leaf. J. R. M Butler and H. M. Butler (Master of Trinity College) received the books as a wedding gift from Sir Walter Leaf. (Note in Butler's hand, laid in.) Schreiber 90. Mortimer 74. Adams B 1656.

Italy (Florence?) between 1542 and 1549. MANUSCRIPT OF HISTORICAL CHRONICLES IN ITS ORIGINAL FOLDER BINDING. In Italian, manuscript on paper, Italy (Florence?), between 1542 and 1549. Dimensions 218 x 145 mm, 50 folios, many blank folios but complete, written in a quick mercantesca script on 24-26 lines. BINDING: original folder binding made from a recycled late fourteenth- or fifteenth-century parchment folio (with an unidentified text), quires gathered in two booklets, sewn together with white thread and tacketed to the folder binding at head and tail of spine with twisted parchment cord. TEXT: brief vernacular chronicles of the kings and emperors of Rome, Holy Roman Emperors, and the popes, almost certainly unedited, and likely never printed. PROVENANCE: written in a legible but unpolished script, probably for the scribe's own use, certainly made between 1542 and 1549: the last date recorded for the Holy Roman Emperors. The booklet's script was only used for vernacular texts and was the primary script of the middle-class literate who generally received a monolingual (Italian) education. Contemporary and later readers left no traces of use behind in this manuscript. CONDITION: occasional minor stains from damp, primarily at edges, and some insignificant chipping or gnawing at edges, some small holes, tears, and gnawing at edges of binding, but overall in good condition. Full description and images available. (TM 1068)

1549. Aus meiner privaten Sammlung biete ich an Martin Luther - Kirchen Postilla / Winterteil (Das ist Auslegung der Episteln vnd Euangelien an den Fürnemesten Festen im gantzen jar.) Verlegt von Hans Lufft in Wittenberg, 1549 (im Kolophon: Leipzig, Wolrab 1545). Mit schöner Holzschnitt-Titelvignette und 15 Textholzschnitten, diese zumeist von Hans Brosamer. Da der alte Einband stark lädiert war, habe ich das Buch vom Buchbindermeister mit hochwertigsten Materialien neu binden lassen: Echtes Schweinsleder und spezielles Bezugpapier. 6 nn., LXXXVIII num., 1 nn. Bl. = insgesamt ca. 190 Seiten Einmalig schönes und extrem seltenes Buch aus der Lutherzeit! Mit diesem Buch erwerben Sie ein Stück Geschichte! Nachdem Luther bis 1525 den Winterteil seiner Sonntagspredigten vollendet hatte, arbeitete er selbst nicht mehr daran weiter, sondern überließ dem aus Zwickau gekommenen Magister Roth Zusammenstellung und Herausgabe der Postillen für den Festteil und den Sommerteil, die 1526-27 fertig gestellt waren, in den folgenden Jahren aber noch einige Überarbeitungen und Ergänzungen erfuhren... Die Nachfrage nach allen Teilen der Postille war groß, besonders von den Pfarrern auf den Dörfern. Ihr Gebrauch war offenbar sehr intensiv, wie die Seltenheit ihres Vorkommens und die kleine Zahl von Bibliotheksnachweisen zeigt. Insgesamt guter Zustand für ein 475 Jahre altes Buch, mit alterstypischen Gebrauchsspuren! Die Fotos geben den Zustand des Buches gut wieder und sind Bestandteil der Auktion.

Theophylactus of Achrida; Lonicer, Jean (trans.).
Apud Iacobum Bogardum, sub insigni D. Christophori è regione gymnasij Cameracensium, 1549. Theophylactus (1055-1107) was a Byzantine archbishop of Achrida, in Bulgaria, and an important theologian whose work was included by Thomas Aquinas in his Catena aurea. First published in Latin in the 1520s, his commentaries on the Scriptures were very influential to Erasmus's exegetical work. This scarce Parisian edition, based on Bogard's of 1542, was reprinted by his heirs in cooperation with Jean Macé; the title-pages of the two issues bear slight differences in the imprint information. The work features Theophylactus's commentary on the Old Testament books of Habakkuk, Jonah, Nahum, and Hosea in Loncier's translation from the Greek, which first appeared in 1534; each chapter discusses their most important vaticinia with Theophylactus' interpretations following, with mention of early Christian heresies and doctrinal debates. Binding: 16th-century polished calf expertly rebacked in slightly lighter leather; spine plain with raised bands accented by blind rules above and below each band. Covers blind-ruled with large gilt fleurons to corners and gilt floral centerpieces. All edges gilt. Provenance: Contemporary inscription "Perrot" to title-page (possibly Charles Perrot, 1541-1608, a Protestant minister in Geneva who preached religious tolerance and so fell out of favor with Calvin); slightly later name "Langloir" also inked to same. => Small 19th-century photographic portrait of a military officer pasted to verso of front free endpaper. Most recently in the library of A … [Click Below for Full Description]
