      Ad Salamandrae, apud Sennentonios fratres, 1549. 6 volumi legati in 5, in folio, cm 42 x 28, pp. (76) + 1838 col.; (52) + 1852 col.; (72) + 1742 col. + (1); (56) + 146 col. + (25); (16) + 448 col. + 288 col. + 160 col. + (8) + 74 col. + (3); (32) + 478 col. + 54 col. Mezza pergamena settecentesca, tagli colorati. Frontespizi in rosso e nero con bordura xilografica incisa da Pierre Vasi, insegna a 2 colori con la salamandra contornata da fiamme in rosso. Macchie d'umido al volume del Digestum vetus con pochi indebolimenti alla carta, danni anticamente restaurati ad alcune pp. iniziali. Danni anticamente riparati a 9 pp. delle Novellarum. Edizione di grande pregio, considerata la migliore tra quelle glossate, solamente seguita da quella di Le Comte di Parigi ,1576 (Mackeldey, Manuel du droit romain, 1837; Marezoll, Precis d'un cours sur... droit). I fratelli Sennenton realizzarono uno dei capolavori dell'umanesimo giuridico, caratterizzato da grande eleganza nella composizione tipografica e dall'utilizzo di immagini necessarie per separare la scansione dei testi e arricchirne il significato con immagini emblematiche. Sono presenti almeno una decina di grandi tavole xilografiche e centinaia di piccole vignette oltre a migliaia di capolettera. Importante in questo senso l'apporto di Pierre Vasi (Pierre Eskrich) 'Le frontispice, evidemment imagine avec l'aide d'un humaniste, est tres complexe et riche en references a la mythologie et a l'histoire mythique du droit romain. Il conçoit d'originales vignettes emblematiques inserees dans le corps meme du commentaire savant, soulignant le lien etroit entre la naissance de la litterature d'emble'mes et le travail erudit des juristes humanistes pour redecouvrir la purete du droit romain' (Selbach, Artisan ou artiste..). Forse il suo migliore legno presente in questa edizione e' l'Arbor servitutum, tavola di grande interesse che mette in scena un sistema mnemonico, qui costruito attraverso la ramificazione delle corna di Atteone, trasforato in cervo da Diana sorpresa al bagno.

        Adamus Macropedii fabula Christianae pietatis plaena. In qua "koozikoos" oste[n]ditur, quo pacto lapsus homo post multas multorum saeculorum calamitates et miserias per Christum ab initio promissum, tandem[ue] mundo exhibitum, saluti restituitur. Utrecht, Herman van Borculo, 1552. With: (2) Sententiae singulis versibus contentae, ex diversorum poëtarum sententiis Graecis, Latinae redditae.[Colophon:] Antwerp, Johannes Loeus, 1544. (3) ERASMUS, Desiderius. [Drop title:] Christiani hominis institutum. Including: ISOCRATES. [Drop title:] Ad demonicum paraenesis.[Antwerp, Jan Verwithagen?, 1551?]. With a large woodcut device on the last page. The Erasmus is a complete work extracted from an edition also containing other works and therefore lacks the general title-page and begins with quire G. 3 works in 1 volume. Small 8vo (13.5 x 9 cm). 18th-century gold-tooled calf.

      Ad 1: STCN (2 copies); Typ. Batava 3285; USTC (4 copies, incl. same 2 copies); ad 2: this edition not in Belg. Typ.; Bibl. Belg.; USTC; ad 3: cf. Belg. Typ. 8269 & 8677; Vandeweghe, p. 238. Ad 1: Very rare first edition of Macropedius's Adamus , a popular school drama on the history of mankind since the fall of man until the birth of Jesus. Macropedius's comedies and tragedies, inspired by the plays of Plautus and Terence, are outstanding specimens of Renaissance Latin school drama. These school dramas had an instructive function in humanistic education as well as the added advantage of familiarizing the pupils with Latin metrics and language through their participation in the performance.Ad 2: Unrecorded third or fourth (?) edition of a very popular collection of proverbs and sayings from Greek poets translated in Latin. Ad 3: Erasmus's catechetical poem Institutum hominis Christiani , (G1-4), Isocrates's Paraenesis ad Demonicum (G5v-H3v) with a preface by Erasmus referring to Agricola (G4v-5), and the Greek Dicta Periandri , explained by Erasmus (H3v-4), followed by the publisher's device (H4v). These are complete works extracted from an edition that included others before them. The large woodcut publisher's device resembles those used by Jan Verwithagen in Antwerp (active 1549-1587), noted in Vandeweghe, but without his monogram. With the bookplate on pastedown. Binding restored, with slightly rubbed edges and the endpapers a bit soiled. Otherwise in very good condition.

        Opera dell’antica, et onorata scientia de Nomandia, specchio d’infiniti beni, et mali, che sotto il Cerchio della Luna possono alli viventi intervenire. Per l’Eccellentiss. Astrologo, Geomante, Chiromante, et Fisionomo M. Annibale Raimondo Veronese, ridotta insieme, et castigata. Aggiuntovi la fisionomia.

      - "Vinetia, Iouitia Rapiro, et Compagni, 1549. In 12esimo (8vo antico), 2 c. b., marca al front. "Al segno della Prudentia", 210, 3 c. b., tavv. xilografate in b/n n. t. e schemi per la spiegazione dei simboli esoterici, leg. post. mua in cartapecora. L’Autore, uno studioso di origine veronese (Verona, 1505 - 1591), scrittore e medico, fu anche astrologo e matematico e fu ricordato soprattutto come astrologo. Le poche notizie biografiche ci fanno notare una straordinaria longevità per i suoi tempi. Tra le sue opere ricordiamo il "Trattato utilissimo e particolarissimo del flusso e del riflusso del mare" e la presente opera che troviamo pubblicata sempre a Venezia anche per i tipi di Pietro e Gianmaria Fratelli de Nicolini di Sabio, a istanza di Rapiro Giovita e Compagni, "Al segno della Prudentia", nel 1550 e nel 1551 (Rapirio, Giovita, Venezia, 1549 -1552, editore attivo a Venezia, si servì della tipografia di Bartolomeo Cesano e, in società con altri, di quella dei Nicolini da Sabbio; sua l’insegna della Prudenza e sua la marca Z985, che passarono poi a Giovanni Bariletti, presumibilmente insieme alla bottega). Annibale Raimondo Veronese (che utilizzò anche lo pseudonimo di Petolotto Zanino di Monte Tonale; lo troviamo anche come Annibal Raymundus e Zaninus Petolotus a Monte Tonali), appassionato di arti quali la geomanzia, la fisionomica e l’alchimia, fu pure geomante, fisionomo e chiromante. Ci propone questo interessante trattato di scienza di nomandia (nomanzia od onomanzia), ossia la divinazione attraverso i nomi e le lettere che li compongono. In realtà la nomandia è stata sempre considerata come un’oscura disciplina che pare riunisse in sé le virtù di più sapienze magiche. Vale la pena ricordare le numerose arti divinatorie citate dall’Autore nella prefazione: astrologia, geomantia, chiromantia, piremantia, spatulamantia (divinazione effettuata con un ramo di palma o con la spatola dello speziale), aeremantia, negromantia, hidromantia. Oltre a queste, fin dall’antichità ebbe successo l’onomanzia, in quanto "ogni lettera per se è sottoposta al suo segno & al suo pianeta, come ancho ha il suo numero & il suo significato ". Nel volume troviamo silografata una "rota del continente di Nomandia", divisa in dodici parti con le dodici case del cielo, con l’alfabeto e i numeri legati ai "charatteri de li pianeti". Seguono la tavola dell’antica scienza con i suoi numeri, i pianeti e i segni, e quella con le "littere bone, meliori, ottime, male, peggiori, pessime e fortunate"; le fantasiose regole "per dare il giudicio de tutti per via dell’alphabeto" (quando si vorrà giudicare una persona, si dovrà innanzitutto fare un’analisi nomantica). Si prende il nome dell’interessato, il nome di sua madre, del mese e del luogo di nascita, scrivendo il tutto lettera per lettera secondo i numeri dell’alfabeto e dopo "sommerai con diligenza, partendo per 30 e secondo che verrà il numero restante sopra la partizione, così andrai alla seguente sua esposizione.". E ancora vi troviamo regole per sapere "se l’infermo debba guarire o morire", "se un matrimonio debbe havere effetto o no", "se ‘l viaggio serà prospero, se la gravida partorirà"; le combinazioni numeriche e simboliche per suggerire comportamenti nelle battaglie e nei duelli. Nel trattato di Raimondo alcune pagine sono dedicate alla fisiognomica, con previsioni caratteriali in base alla forma delle sopracciglia, della fronte e dei capelli, del naso e delle orecchie. Nel 1559 l’Opera, molto simile a un manoscritto attribuito a Gaudenzio Travisano, che ne riproduceva una parte cospicua, fu messa all’Indice. La nomandia consisteva in un’antica arte divinatoria di ispirazione popolare che sostituiva l’astrologia, questa non del tutto priva di scientificità, dato il legame col pitagorismo e con la cabala ebraica che la facevano credere certa e infallibile. Riscoperta da Annibale Raimondi, la nomandia era peraltro, a suo dire, semplice da applicarsi: pochi e opportuni calcoli matematici a sodd

        DER HEILIGEN XII

      Wittenberg: Georg Rhau, 1549. FIRST EDITION y. This elusive work features a major suite of wood engravings by a leading artist of the German Renaissance, vividly depicting the martyrdoms suffered by Christ's Apostles, the "Holy 12" of the title. Court painter to Frederick, elector of Saxony, and friend of Martin Luther, Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553) is described by Britannica as the "chief pictorial propagandist of the Protestant cause in Germany." His reputation drew other artists to Wittenberg, and Muther observes that the city "achieved its position in the history of book illustration by virtue of Martin Luther and Lucas Cranach." He is best known today as an engraver, and the present woodcuts demonstrate his merit. Originally designed in 1514 and used once before (in a 1539 work on the Apostle's Creed), they are full of movement and detail, showing the various brutal deaths of the Apostles--by crucifixion, beheading, and in the case of the unfortunate Simon, by being sawn in half--before jeering crowds. In the sermon printed here at the front of the volume, Lutheran preacher Pollicarius (1524-67) explains how the lives and deaths of the Apostles can be a source of inspiration and instruction to Christians (while Lutherans had abolished the cult of the saints, they were still devoted to the Apostles). Accompanying each plate is a line linking back to the prefatory sermon and then a brief passage describing the image, often including scriptural citations of the event portrayed. Pollicarius studied under Luther at Wittenberg and wrote the first biography of his teacher, which he published together with Luther's assembled writings after the latter's death. Wittenberg printer Georg Rhau (1488-1548) was important to the success of the Protestant Reformation. In addition to producing religious texts, he was a composer and one of the leading music publishers in Germany. This is an extremely rare book: apart from the present item, we were able to trace no copy on the market since 1947.. 285 x 192 mm. (11 1/4 x 7 1/2"). [11] leaves. FIRST EDITION. Recent unadorned retrospective calf by Courtland Benson. Title page framed by woodcut figures of the 12 Apostles, 13 WOODCUTS BY LUCAS CRANACH (signed with his shield) depicting the Apostles and Saint Paul, and two additional woodcuts of the Creation and the Resurrection. VD 16 P-4031. Small portion of inner margin at bottom of title page renewed (well away from images and text), margins faintly smudged and thumbed, printed on paper not of the highest quality (or perhaps washed) and now no longer crisp, strength of illustration impressions varies, but a copy without any fatal flaws of an excessively rare book to be welcomed in any condition.

      Françoys Girault pour Vincent Sertenas, Paris 1549 - 2 tomes en 1 vol. in-folio à pagination continue de (6)-553-(39) ff., tables, veau brun, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure du XVIIe siècle). Edition originale à la belle typographie de François Girault ; titre orné en rouge et noir pour chaque partie ; grand bois à l'effigie de Notre-Dame de Verdun répété au tome II ; grandes lettrines. Histoire détaillée des évêques de Verdun, mêlée au récit d'événements généraux étrangers à la Lorraine, et à des traditions fabuleuses. Il renferme un très grand nombre de documents originaux que l'on ne trouve pas ailleurs et qui avaient été empruntés par l'auteur aux cartulaires les plus authentiques des établissements religieux de ce diocèse. La vie de chacun des évêques de Verdun jusqu'en 1508 est le noyau autour duquel l'auteur a groupé l'histoire générale d'une partie de l'Europe, tout en retraçant avec détails l'histoire ecclésiastique de son diocèse. Selon Olivier Millet il s'agit de la deuxième occurence du terme Gallia Belgica dans l'histoire de l'imprimé, la première au seizième siècle : « Sous l'influence de l'humanisme, un terme ancien ressucite : Gallia Belgica. Dès le milieu du XVe siècle, la traduction des Annales Hannoniae de Jacques de Guyse paraît sous le titre Illustrations de la Gaulle-Belgique. Un siècle plus tard, en 1549, Richard de Wassebourg publie les Antiquitez de la Gaule Belgicque et vingt ans après Marc Van Vaernewijck dans son Spieghel des Nederlandscher traduit Gallia Belgica par Neder-Waelsch-Land. Dès lors, les habitants des Pays-Bas furent appelés Belga et la région parfois dénommée la Belge » (Olivier Millet, Calvin et ses contemporains: actes du colloque de Paris 1995). Bon exemplaire.

      Basel: Henrichus Petrus, 1549. The First Book Devoted to Brain DisordersPratensis, Jason Å• (1486-1558). D. Iasonis Pratensis Zyricei medici clarissimi de cerebri morbis: Hoc est, omnibus fermč (quoniam Å• cerebro male affecto omnes ferč qui corpus humanum infestant, morbi oriuntur) curandis liber. . . . [32], 540, [4] pp. Basel: Henrichus Petrus [1549]. 8vo. 153 x 101 mm. Full blind-tooled morocco in antique style by the Aquarius BIndery. Binding a little tight, small oval library stamp effaced from title leaf, faint marginal dampstains on a few leaves, but very good. A few marginal notes in an early hand. The Haskell F. Norman copy, with his bookplate. First Edition. The first book devoted entirely to brain disorders. Pratensis (originally van de Velde) was the personal physician to Adolf van Bourgondie, margrave of Veere in the Netherlands; he was also the author of several books on topics such as sterility and childbirth. “In 1549, [Pratensis] published his last book, De cerebri morbis, ‘On the Diseases of the Brain,’ a volume of 540 pages divided into 33 chapters and covering every cerebral disorder and disease from headache to dimwittedness, from loss of memory, epilepsy, drunkenness, tremors, and convulsions to frenzy, lethargy, catalepsy, mania, melancholy and love . . . this book was probably the first full-length consideration of all the topics that would later fall within the domain of neurology, as well as much else besides” (Midefort, A History of Madness in Sixteenth-Century Germany, p. 152). Chapter 17 deals with mania, which Pratensis defined as a “mental corruption” caused by an excess of black bile; this condition could be brought about by a number of factors, including too much alcohol, religious fear, covetousness and Lutheranism(!). Pratensis recommended curing mania with diet, herbs, cooling baths, music, and well-regulated exercise and sleep; if these remedies failed, the more recalcitrant maniacs could be subdued with whips and chains.

RELATION DE L'ENTREE SOLENNELLE A PARIS D'HENRI II EN ET DE CATHERINE DE MEDICIS EN 1549, deux ans après l'avènement du roi qui succédait à son père François Ier, mort en 1547. LE PREMIER OUVRAGE DECRIT LA CEREMONIE DE L'ENTREE, LE SECOND RELATE LE SACRE DE LA REINE, SIX JOURS AUPARAVANT, A SAINT-DENIS. En marquant la liquidation de la succession de François Ier, l'événement revêtait une importance politique considérable. LA VILLE DE PARIS LUI DONNA UNE SOLENNITE PARTICULIERE, N'EPARGNANT AUCUN EFFORT POUR EN SOULIGNER LE CARACTERE MAJESTUEUX : LES DECORS ET LES EDIFICES FURENT DESSINES ET CONSTRUITS SOUS LA DIRECTION DES PLUS GRANDS ARTISTES, SANS DOUTE Jean Cousin, Jean Goujon et Philibert de l'Orme. La coutume des entrées solennelles de souverains dans une ville, et principalement dans une capitale, remonte à la plus haute Antiquité et s'est poursuivie pratiquement à toutes les époques. Sauf quelques exceptions, ce n'est qu'à partir de 1515, lors de l'Entrée de Charles-Quint à Bruges, que celles-ci auraient donné lieu à des relations imprimées illustrées (von Arnim, Fünf Jahrhunderte Buchillustration, p. 91). CE BEAU ET RARE LIVRE ILLUSTRE CONSERVE LE SOUVENIR DES PLUS BELLES DECORATIONS ARCHITECTURALES DU SEIZIEME SIECLE ET DECRIT LA MAGNIFICENCE DE CETTE ENTREE ROYALE. Le texte, attribué à Hardouyn Chauveau par une inscription ancienne dans l'exemplaire Soleinne, serait dû, selon V.L. Saulnier, Les Fêtes de la Renaissance, I, pp. 31-59, au traducteur de Serlio, de Vitruve et de l'Hypnerotomachia Poliphili, l'écrivain Jean Martin, assisté, pour les inscriptions sur les monuments, du poète Thomas Sebillet. LES ONZE PLANCHES SUR BOIS, HORS ET DANS LE TEXTE, QUI DECORENT L'OUVRAGE, EN PARTIE SIGNEES D'UNE CROIX DE LORRAINE, ONT ETE ATTRIBUEES AUX PLUS GRANDS ARTISTES. PAR LA PERFECTION DE LEUR GRAVURE ET L'ELEGANCE DE LEUR DESSIN, EXEMPLES PARFAITS DU STYLE HENRI II DANS SON EXPRESSION PARISIENNE LA PLUS RAFFINEE, ELLES PASSENT POUR L'UN DES CHEFS-D’ŒUVRE DE L'ILLUSTRATION FRANÇAISE DU SEIZIEME SIECLE. La question reste évidemment ouverte de savoir si ces gravures traduisent les dessins ayant servi à élever les monuments de la réception ou si elles en restituent seulement l'aspect. La décoration de ces planches comporte à deux endroits au moins, au pont de Notre-Dame et à la construction flanquant le Beautreillis, le monogramme de Diane de Poitiers ; son emblème, le croissant, qui pourrait passer pour un motif décoratif, figure à plusieurs autres endroits, mais sur ces deux constructions son chiffre s'étale complaisamment à côté, voire à la place, de celui du roi ; le texte mentionne les monogrammes au H du roi mais reste muet sur ceux de sa maîtresse, âgée de cinquante ans, qui figurait dans le cortège de la reine sous son nouveau titre de duchesse de Vale [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        In Beati Ioannis Apocalypsim expositio, Nunc primum è tenebris eruta. Cum Indice, & duplici Tabula, Locorum Sacrae Scripturae, & Quaestionum.

      Florantia (Florence), Lorenzo Torrentino, 1549. 8vo. Contemporary limp vellum with handwritten title to spine. Library label pasted on to inside of front board, old library stamp and old owner's inscription to title-page, and library stamp to verso of title-page. An excellent, clean and fresh copy, with only very minor occasional browning. (16), 654, (82) pp.. Scarce editio princeps of Thomas Aquinas' highly important commentary on the Apocalypse of John, which at the time of Aquinas was considered perhaps the most important part of the Bible. The Apocalypse of John constitutes the last book of the Bible and the only thoroughly apocalyptic text of the New Testament; it presents a vision of the end of time and of God's victory over evil and was - especially in the Middle Ages - an extremely popular part of the Bible, which in itself inspired much medieval art. Thomas Aquinas, being the most important and influential bible commentator of his time, came to profoundly influence the way that the Bible - including the Apocalypse - was interpreted throughout the Middle Ages and well into the Renaissance. Aquinas wrote many influential bible commentaries, and his "On the Apocalypse of St. John" was of foundational character to his interpretation of The New Testament. "The Old Testament leads us out of myth into history; but the New Testament passes from the historical Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles, through the wisdom of the Epistles, to close once more in the great myth of the Apocalypse. Without some understanding of what the Apocalypse of St John reveals the rest of the Bible loses half its potency." (Emil Bock: The Apocalypse of St John, in: Anthroposophical Quarterly 2.4 (Winter 1957): 16). Adams: A-1494

        Andreae Dactii Patricii et Academici Florentini Poemata

      Lorenzo Torrentino 1549 In 8vo (cm 14,5), legatura del XVIII secolo in mezza pelle con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso, taglio rosso, pp. 320. Carattere corsivo latino e greco. Lievi fioriture, margine superiore un po' corto, minimi aloni marginali, insignificante strappetto all'ultima carta senza danno al testo, ma nel complesso ottima copia.RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE pubblicata postuma per le cure del figlio dell'autore Giovanni Dazzi e da questi dedicata a Cosimo de' Medici. A pagina 5 segue un'altra dedica di Andrea Dazzi a Pietro Soderini. La raccolta si apre con numerosi epigrammi ed elegie: in quei versi nei quali egli canta il suo amore per una certa Fulvia si comprende come il Dazzi «seppe contemperare lo studio dei classici con quello dei poeti volgari e soprattutto del Petrarca» (G. Bottiglioni, La lirica latina in Firenze nella seconda metà  del secolo XV, Pisa, 1913, p. 140 e inoltre pp. 136 - 144). Seguono otto selve in esametri, ciascuna dedicata ad un argomento diverso: lodi adulatorie, notizie autobiografiche, scene di vita contemporanea, ecc. Chiudono la raccolta il poemetto eroicomico in tre libri Aeluromyomachia, scritto in età  giovanile, qui pubblicato da M. Serafini e da questi dedicato a P. Cattani da Diacceto, e un'orazione latina in lode delle lettere greche. Dall'esame dei componimenti emergono le fitte relazioni che il Dazzi intratteneva con i personaggi più importanti del tempo, tra i quali ricordiamo J. Naldi, P. Crinito, G. Rucellai, L. Albizzi, L. Torelli e M. Tarcaniota. Proprio l'inimicizia tra quest'ultimo e A. Poliziano, che era stato maestro del Dazzi, causò la successiva rottura tra il Poliziano e il Dazzi stesso, il quale «in una serie di epigrammi assai mordaci, attaccò il Poliziano nel suo punto più vulnerabile, cioè nella sua immoralità » (Bottiglioni, op. cit., p. 144). Lo accusò infatti molto arditamente di omosessualità . «Parmi ces poésies il y en a de fort libres.. La plupart sont dans le genre de Catulle et de Martial.. Cela n'a point empêché ce recueil d'être réimprimé à  Paris, en 1554, avec un privilège du roi» (J. Gay, Bibliographie des ouvrages relatifs à  l'amour, aux femmes, au mariage.., Paris, 1894, I, p. 782). Numerosi sono i componimenti e le strofe in greco. In fine vi sono l'indice dei poemi e l'errata. Originario di Firenze, il Dazzi si formò nelle lettere latine sotto la guida del Poliziano e del Landino, mentre nelle lettere greche ebbe come maestro il Verino. Le sue qualità  di erudito gli fecero ottenere l'insegnamento di lettura greca presso lo Studio Fiorentino nel 1502. Insegnò ininterrottamente sia a Firenze che a Pisa fino circa al 1520, avendo come allievi P. Vettori, B. Cavalcanti, P. Mini ed altri. Proprio intorno a quegli anni una grave malattia lo rese completamente cieco e lo costrinse a ritirarsi presso la sua villa di Fiesole. Ciononostante egli continuò ad ottenere alcuni importanti incarichi pubblici e fu tra i primi ad entrare nell'Accademia fiorentina dopo la sua fondazione ufficiale nel 1541, divenendone in seguito censore.

Fuchs's standard-setting Historia emphasizes the pharmacological qualities of the plants described and provides over => 500 woodcut illustrations remarkable for their accuracy and reliability, compared to many previous herbals. A number of the plant descriptions herein are the first known to have been published, including those of => New World plants such as chilli pepper, pumpkin, marigold, and tobacco; the plant names are given in Latin, Greek, French, and German. The work was first published in 1542 in folio form, with this smaller format being brought out as more convenient for work in the field and elsewhere. This is the second Lyons edition and the first illustrated Lyons printing, featuring smaller woodcuts specially commissioned by Arnoullet from Clément Boussy, after the Albrecht Meyer and Heinrich Fu?llmaurer originals from the Basel printings. The title-page bears Arnoullet's seahorse and sword device. Binding: 18th-century speckled calf, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and gilt-stamped foliate compartment decorations between gilt-ruled raised bands. Evidence of Readership: Intermittent early inked underlining and occasional annotations; final page (colophon) with substantive early inked annotation in Latin. Provenance: Front pastedown with bookplate of Tess M. Hope; title-page with inked ownership inscription of Vitus Herremann, dated 1633; title-page verso with small bookplate "Biblioth. Bosian. Hortens." (the Leipzig Botanical Garden). Bound as above, leather pitted and scuffed, joints and spine rubbed with spine leather showing small cracks. Bookplate and inscriptions as above, front free endpaper and back pastedown with later pencilled annotations; other annotations as noted above. Title-page with lower portion excised, mounted some time ago. Margins of first and last few leaves darkened; occasional light spots and smudges. A solid and interesting copy of a landmark herbal, with evidence of early reader engagement.

Contemporary blindstamped Leather over wooden boards with ribbed back, Folio (columns 557-582 have annotations written in Latin in an old handwriting, text printed in columns, spine rebound. Galen, c.130-c.200, physician and writer, was born in Pergamum, of Greek parents. After study in Greece and Asia Minor and at Alexandria, he returned to Pergamum, where he served as physician to the gladiatorial school. He resided chiefly in Rome from c.162. Noted for his lectures and writings, he established a large practice and became court physician to Marcus Aurelius. He is credited with some 500 treatises, most of them on medicine and philosophy, at least 83 of his medical works are extant. He correlated earlier medical knowledge in all fields with his own discoveries (based in part on experimentation and on dissection of animals) and systematized medicine in accordance with his theories, which emphasized purposive creation. His work in anatomy and physiology is especially notable. He demonstrated that arteries carry blood instead of air and added greatly to knowledge of the brain, nerves, spinal cord, and pulse. Galen's influence was great. His books were still being used in the Middle Ages and for many medical students, they were the primary source of information on medicine.) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Ioannem Roigny, Paris 1549 - AUTHORIAL PRESENTATION COPY 8vo. pp. (xlviii), 283, (v). a?, e?, i?, a-s? Roman and Italic letter, some Greek. Floriated woodcut initials and headpieces, "Ex bibliotheca Iacobi demonthiers supremo Parhis senati Advocati. Ex dono dicti Putherbei" in contemporary hand at foot of title page, Captain Michiels, name stamp on title, manuscript autograph dated 1749 "Medio tutissimus ibis"on rear fly, bookplate, engraved by L. Fruytiers of "I. G. M." on pastedown with same motto, manuscript note concerning the author on fly in C18th hand, occasional manuscript underlining in red crayon. Light age yellowing, title page a little dusty and spotted. A good copy, crisp and clean in slightly later speckled calf rebacked, corners restored. Rare first edition of this important work defending the censorship of ungodly books by the Cistercian Monk Gabriel Dupuyherbault, including biting attacks on authors, notably Rabelais, who were thought to threaten public morals. In doing so he made a bitter enemy of Rabelais who castigated him in the prefaces of later editions of his work. "Rabelais’s words concerning this particular species of Anti-Natures children were: Demoniacles Calvins, imposters de Geneve, that is ‘demoniacal Calvins, Genevan imposters.’ Rabelais’s reference to his Catholic detractor immediately follows: les enraigez Putherbs, "the crazy Putherbes" that is, Putherbius, the latin form of DuPuyherbault’s name. In five of the thirty editions the unknown editors contented themselves with simply dropping the reference to Calvin and Geneva, so that redoubled thunder fell upon the monk Gabriel DuPuyherbault: ‘the demoniacal, crazy Puytherbes’. But because these editions included no footnotes and the relation to the monk’s latin name and writings to which Rabelais had perhaps faded by the 1560’s, this slander was probably inconsequential, however unjust. (.) E Droz, in ‘Frere DuPuyherbault’ has shown that whatever DuPuyherbault’s hatred of Rabelais’s religious views and mores, he was by no means crazy but was rather a sincere and tireless proponent of Catholic monastic reforms. DuPuyherbault died in 1566" Sam Kinser ‘Rabelais’ Carnival." In fact DuPuyherbault was an important theologian of the Sorbonne. This treatise, attacking heretical writings and calling for censorship of impious works, was perhaps his most famous work. Most of the authors he considers are classical but he devotes quite large sections to Rabelais. His criticisms of Rabelais did much to cement the popular image of him as a drunkard and philandering atheist. "After such simplistic good and bad judgments came the more serious disrepute of Rabelais in fashionable circles, a disrepute popularized after Rabelais's death by persiflage in poems like Pierre Ronsard's comic epitaph depicting the writer wallowing amid spilt wine "like a frog in mud." Such satire reinforced the rabid attacks of Catholic controversialists like Gabriel DuPuyherbault, who depicted Rabelais as a drunkard and glutton "who does nothing everyday but sniff kitchen odors and imitate the long-tailed monkey." Kinser, Samuel. ‘Rabelais's Carnival’. This copy was given by the author to Jacques de Monthiers, ’le lieutenant général" at the town of Pontois just outside of Paris. BM STC Fr. C16th. p.145.

Insgesamt sehr dekoratives Exemplar eines oft gedruckten Buches in einer recht seltenen Auflage und in einem zeitgenössischen, weitestgehend erhaltenen Einband. Die "dies geniales" des neapolitanischen Juristen und Hobbyphilologen Alessandro Alessandri (1461 - 1523), seit 1522 mehrfach aufgelegt, sind eine aus antiken Schriftstellen kompilierte Art Enzyklopädie. Savigny meinte dazu: "... Behandelt unter andern mehrere Pandektenstellen, hauptsächlich von Seiten der Sprachkunde. Das Wichtigste aber ist der darin enthaltene Versuch einer Herstellung der zwölf Tafeln ..." Als Vorbilder dienten die "Attischen Nächte" des Aulus Gellius und die "Saturnalien" des Macrobius. "On peut le comparer, dit Tiraboschi, a un grand magasin ou l'on trouve des marchandieses de toute espece: il faut une main habile et experimentee pour les chosir, les repolir, et en faire un bon usage" (Hoefer I, 791), also ein bunter Gemischtwaren- oder Trödelladen. Gilt dennoch als zentrales Werk der frühen Humanisten und prägte wesentlich die weitere Rezeption der römischen Rechtsprinzipien. Anmerkungen zum Autor: (1461-1523) "ALESSANDRI, Alessandro. - Nato a Firenze da Ugo e da Gemma di Donato Cambi il 13 luglio 1391, apparteneva a una delle principali famiglie della citta, fino a poco prima consorte di quella degli Albizzi, potentissima nella vita fiorentina del tempo, godendo reputazione, utili e dignita dello stato. Capitano di Campiglia nel 1423, operaio dell'Opera di S. Maria del Fiore nel 1430, nonche commissario della Repubblica nella guerra contro Lucca, nel bimestre luglio-agosto 1431 fece parte della Signoria e poi, scaduto da quell'ufficio, fu nominato dai Dieci di Balia loro procuratore per assoldare truppe; nel 1432 fu capitano della Montagna pistoiese. Nel 1435 fu inviato oratore a Venezia e poi nel Casentino presso il conte Francesco di Poppi. Fu ripetutamente dell'ufficio degli Otto di Guardia e Balia (1435, 1439, 1442, 1446, 1451, 1456) e per varie volte (1439, 1440, 1441, 1447, 1452) in quello dei Dieci di Balia, che era l'organo che dirigeva la politica estera della Repubblica e la condotta della guerra. Fu gonfaloniere di giustizia nel 1441 e per la seconda volta nel 1448; nel 1442 fu capitano di Livorno, e di Pistoia nel 1445, anno in cui sposo Onesta Acciaiuoli. Salito sul soglio pontificio Niccolo V, l'A. fece parte (1447) della solenne ambasceria inviata a Roma per congratularsi con il pontefice. Quando nel 1451 l'imperatore Federico si reco a Roma, l'A. fu uno dei cittadini inviati a Ferrara per incontrare quel principe, dal quale venne poi fatto cavaliere il 16 febbr. 1452; dopo il parlamento dell'agosto 1458 fu nominato accoppiatore. Nell'ottobre del 1459 ando ambasciatore a Livorno per ossequiarvi Giovanni d'Angio. Mori a Firenze il 27 dicembre 1460. Oltre che nella vita pubblica della Firenze del suo tempo, l'A. ebbe un certo rilievo anche nell'ambiente umanistico fiorentino; da giovane aveva frequentato la scuola di Roberto de' Rossi; fu intimo di Matteo Palmieri, che gli dedico la sua Vita civile,e fu amico di Filippo Lippi, che, posteriormente al 1450, lo raffiguro, insieme con due suoi figliuoli, in una tavola ora nel Metropolitan Museum di New York.
