It is a 'Curieux traité, où l'auteur aborde un grand nombre de problèmes concernant la vie scolaire et universitaire' (Dictionnaire de Droit Canonique, Paris 1965, vii, col.477). The author had studied at Montpellier, Toulouse, and Cahors, where he took his doctorate in utroque jure. In 1527 he was teaching at Poitiers, in 1529 in Bourges, and in 1533 in Paris, where he was one of six doctors regent appointed to lecture on canon law. He pub­lished on some of the most vexed and sensitive legal questions of his day, including treatises on the law concerning ecclesiastical benefices, the rights of pos­session, royal duties and prerogatives, war, and the lordship of castles.

        Necyomantia iurisperiti. Sive de occulta iurisprudentia dialogi.Lugduni, apud Ioan. Tornaesium, 1549.

      Lugduni, apud Ioan. Tornaesium 1549 - Cm. 23, pp. 328. Bei capilettera xilografici. Legatura settecentesca in piena pergamena rigida con titoli in oro al dorso; tagli rossi. Carte di guardia assenti. Antico rinforzo al margine esterno del frontespizio che si presenta un po' frastagliato, segni di tarlo limitati al margine esterno di poche carte, sporadiche fioriture e bruniture, qualche alone sparso. Esemplare nel complesso genuino e in discreto stato di conservazione. Etienne Forcadel (1519 ca.-1578) spesso menzionato per lo "scontro" con Cujas nell'assegnazione di una cattedra a Tolosa, fu un giurista di spicco nell'ambito dell'umanesimo giuridico francese. Quest'opera, caratterizzata da un titolo curioso e un po' pretenzioso, si traduce in una sorta di elogio/esegesi del diritto romano classico fondata sul dialogo immaginario tra i più grandi giureconsulti dell'antichità.

        La Circe. Florence, (appresso Lorenzo Torrentino, 1 April)

      1549 - Fine one-piece architectural woodcut border, portrait of Gelli on verso of title. 8vo (168 x 103mm) 266pp [2]ff (lacking last of 2 final blanks). 18th century vellum over paste-board, red morocco gilt label on spine, decorated endpapers. Rare first edition of one of Gelli's most influential works, his vernacular dialogue on man's condition, often regarded as his masterpiece. The ten dialogues are based on the Homeric legend of the witch Circe who transformed Ulysses' companions into a variety of animals - ranging from an oyster to an elephant. Ulysses persuades her to change them back into human beings but only the elephant, formerly a philosopher, returns to his former state as he alone recognises man's freedom and dignity. In the work the self-taught Gelli reveals a remarkable range of sources from Homer, Ovid, Plutarch, Pliny and Aristotle to humanists such as Ficino, Pomponazzi and Pico della Mirandola. There were three translations into English from the 16th to 18th centuries (first translated by Henry Iden, 1557) and it may have influenced Swift's Gulliver's Travels (1726).The self-taught Florentine poet, thinker, playwright and critic Gelli (1498-1563) trained as a shoemaker, but although of humble birth, he later became a member of the Florentine Academy and was given the title Riformatore della lingua.

        I ragionamenti, overo Colloqui famigliari... di latino in volgare già tradotti, ma hora in tanti luoghi racconci, non solo intorno la lingua, ma etiandio intorno i sensi, che più tosto ritradotti, che racconci si possono dire

      8vo (155x97 mm). (32, leaf **8 is a blank), 537, (5) pp. Printer's device on the title-page and at the verso of the last leaf verso. 18th-century mottled calf, gilt flat spine with lettering-piece, red edges (joints and top of the spine a bit worn, but solid). On the verso of the title-page is found the engraved bookplate of the French bibliophile Albert François Floncel (1697-1773; see Guigard, II, pp. 216-217). Title-page slightly dampstained, small stain the in lower corner of leaf P1, otherwise a fine copy.SECOND, COMPLETELY REVISED EDITION of the first Italian translation of the 'Colloquies', "journal d'une vie et d'un epoque,... document irremplaçable sur la société du XVIe siècle mais aussi sur Erasme lui-même" (F. Bierlaire, Erasme et ses Colloques, Genève, 1977, p. 116). With over one hundred editions until the end of the 16th century (including translations and adaptations), the 'Colloquies' became Erasmus' most printed work.The Colloquia grew from their earliest form of short models of Latin conversation and formulae of etiquette (composed for the use of Erasmus' pupils at Paris in 1497 and first printed without his authorization at Basel in 1518 and again edited by Erasmus himself in March 1522) into a rich and motley collection of dialogues, each a masterpiece of literary form. Full of witty and penetrating information on ordinary day-to-day happenings, they are a valuable mine of information about 16th-century customs, institutions and social problems. The work also became a vehicle of social criticism and, as such, the focus of controversy (cf. E. Rummel, Les Colloques d'Érasme: renouveau spiritual et réforme, Paris, 1998, passim).The Colloquia were prohibited in various unofficial Indices since the late 1540s not only for their "Lutheran" ideas but also for being considered morally corrupt. The index of Paul IV (1559) condemned all of Erasmus' works, but the index of the Council of Trent (1564) permitted their publication in expurgated form. However, Lauro's Italian translations were nevertheless prohibited (cf. P. Grendler, The Roman Inquisition and the Venetian Press, 1540-1605, Princeton, NJ, 1977, p. 166).For his translation Lauro certainly used or the definitive edition of the Colloquia printed in March 1533 or slightly later one. His aim was to give to his unlearned readers the very essence of the Colloquia, what let him to cut most of the didactic parts ("formulae") and some erudite disquisitions (mostly philological). He translated however all the major colloquies in their integrity. In the present revised edition Lauro's name has been omitted (for fear of retaliatory measures of the Holy Office?). The dedication to Renée de France (cf. E. Belligni, Evangelismo, riforma ginevrina e nicodemismo: l'esperienza religiosa di Renata di Francia, Cosenza, 2008, p. 247) had been maintained in its entirety and is followed by Erasmus' vindication of the Colloquia with a slightly different title (see below). As early as 1522 Erasmus was defending the purposes of his Colloquia, especially against the assaults led by the Carmelite Nicholaas Baechem. By May 1526, his enemies in the faculty of theology at Paris, who had been complaining about him for several years, succeeded in carrying a motion of censure against the Colloquia. A few weeks before the faculty acted, Erasmus chose to defend his work in a letter to the bishop of Lincoln, John Longland (April 30, 1526). A revised version of this apology was then published under the title De utilitate colloquiorum ('On the Usefulness of the Colloquies', dated May 21, 1526) at the end of Familiarium colloquiorum opus, printed at Basel by Froben in June of the same year. The index enumerating the various dialogues in the 1545 edition had been expanded to a longer subject index in the present one."Le due dediche sono perfettamente uguali ed anche il testo è sostanzialmente identico per quanto riguarda il numero e la successione dei dialoghi. Tuttavia C2 [1549] si offre come più corretta, non riportando gli errori nei titoli correnti, presentando un'interpunzione più regolare e una veste grafica più chiara, che alterna l'uso del corsivo a quello del maiuscoletto. Quella che in C1 [1545] viene intitolata Epistola di Erasmo ai lettori, ove tratta de l'utile che si cava ne Dialoghi, ovvero la De utilitate colloquiorum, e posta, come nell'originale, a chiusura dell'opera, viene in C2 anteposta e collocata subito dopo la dedica, col titolo parzialmente mutato di Epistola di Erasmo Roterodamo ai lettori, nella quale difendendo se stesso, mostra l'utile, che puo cavarsi da i suoi colloqui. In occasione della seconda edizione essa viene poi dotata di titoli in maiuscoletto, volti a rendere maggiormente riconoscibili i dialoghi in essa citati, corredati questa volta del riferimento alla carta in cui si ritrovano. Il testo di C2 si presenta infine integralmente rassettato nella veste linguistica, resa più aderente ai dettami morfologici invalsi nel periodo, preferendo le forme anafonetiche, non metatetiche e non metafonetiche, presenti in abbondanza in C1" (M. Malguti, Pietro Lauro traduttore dei 'Colloquia' erasmiani, Diss., Rome, 2011/12, p. 135).Little is known about the early life and education of Pietro Lauro. He was born around 1510 in Modena and probably made medical studies in Bologna or Padua, considering the many translations of medical works he did during his career. In the 1540s he moved to Venice, attracted by the growing possibilities offered in the printing business. As a schoolmaster, he taught Greek and Latin and at the same time collaborated with several local typographers especially as a translator. The relationships Lauro had with several figures close to the Evangelical movement, like Ortensio Lando, Lucrezia Gonzaga and Renée de France, and the many letters addressed to German correspondents (all found in his letter collections, published in 1552 and 1560), testify to his sympathy for the Lutheran doctrines (cf. S. Seidel Menchi, Erasmus als Ketzer: Reformation und Inquisition im Italien des 16. Jahrhunderts, Leiden & New York, 1992, pp. 435, 467). The year after the publication of the translation of the Colloquia, he completely disappeared from the literary scene in Venice to re-emerge only in 1549. Among the many works he translated in Italian stand out the De inventoribus rerum by Polidoro Virgili (1543), De officio mariti by Juan Luis Vives (1546), and Leon Battista Alberti's De re aedificatoria (1546). From Spanish he translated numerous devotional works by Luis de Granada and Antonio de Guevara. Lauro died at Venice after 1568 (cf. G. Dini, Pietro Lauro, in: "Dizionario biografico degli italiani", vol. 64, Rome, 2005, pp. 119-122).The printer Vincenzo Valgrisi (Vincent Vaugris) was originally from Lyon, and moved to Venice in the late 1530s, where he was active until 1573. In 1559, when all of Erasmus' works were put on the index of Paul IV, probably under pressure of the Venetian Holy Office, Valgrisi dropped the designation 'Ex officina Erasmiana' or 'Nella Bottega d'Erasmo' ('In Erasmus' workshop') from his title-pages and colophons (cf. I. Andreoli, Ex officina erasmiana. Vincenzo Valgrisi e l'illustrazione del libro tra Venezia e Lione alla metà del '500, Lyons, 2006, p. 78).Edit 16, CNCE18238; Universal STC, no. 828305; Adams, E-534; Index Aureliensis, 163.419; I.

        Studentes, comoedia de vita studiosorum

      Peter Horst. 8vo. (48) leaves. With the printer's device on the title-page. Boards, some very light browning, but a fine, nearly uncut copy.VERY RARE EDITION of Stymmelius' morality play on the university life. It became a great success right from its first appearance in 1549 and was reprinted twenty-one times until the end of the century (cf. G. Voss, Christoph Stummel: "Studentes, comoedia de vita studiosorum', in: "Jahresbericht über das Königliche Kaiser-Wilhelms-Gymnasium zu Aachen für das Schuljahr 1898/99", Aachen, 1899, p. 1-12). At the end of the volume is printed a long poem by Stymmelius Iudicium Paridis.In his comedy Stymmelius introduces three young students on the stage: the assiduous Philomates, and two of his idle fellows, Acolastus and Acrates, who are going to spent their time and money with girls and gambling. Though the plot is not really original and Stymmelius sporadically borrowed from Gulielmus Gnaphaeus' Acolastus (1526), nevertheless Stymmelius' comedy is very im-portant for giving a vivid and faithful picture of the students' life in a German university of the six-teenth century, and furthermore expressing the educational intention of its author (cf. K.G. Konrad, Die deutsche Studentenschaft in ihrem Verhältnis zu Bühne und Drama, Berlin, 1912, pp. 74-77; see also W.F. Michael, Das deutsche Drama der Reformationszeit, Bern, 1984, pp. 104-106; and C. Dietl, Neo-Latin Humanist and Protestant Drama in Germany, in: "Neo-Latin Drama and Theatre in Early Modern Europe", J. Bloemendal e H.B. Norland, eds., Leiden, 2013, pp. 155-157)."Stummel - who had studied dramatic technique with his professor, the Terence commentator Jodocus Wil-lich – had both a gift for astute observation and enough good sense to realize that success on the school stage required proof of sound moral application. Stummel's Studentes was performed twice at Wit-tenberg. Among the guests of honor was Melanchthon, who bestowed upon it the attribute "elegantissima', praise that referred both to the Latin dialogues fasgioned after Terence and Plautus and to the proof that the young author obviously was well-read" (M. Berthold, The History of World Theater from the Beginnings to the Baroque, New York, 1991, p. 376)."Im Jahre 1549 hatte der neunzehnjährige Student Christoph Stymmel aus Frankfurt a/Oder... das lateinische Schauspiel "Studentes' geschrieben. In der Parabel vom verlorenen Sohn knüpft er das Schicksal verschieden gearteter Studenten. Es sind der fleissige Philamathes und seine Jugendfreunde Acolatus und Acratus. Der eine der beiden vergeudet alles mit Wei-bern, der andere ist ein Spieler. Natürlich siegt in Philamathes die Tugend. Acolatus muss das Mädchen heiraten, das er entehrt hat. Acratus bestiehlt seinen Vater, um seine Spielschulden zu bezahlen. Über eine der üblichen Sauf- und Raufszenen berichte in diesen "Studentes' ein Student: "Bis ein Uhr früh haben wir gestern Abend getrunken und waren so berauscht, dass wir kaum noch stehen konnten, ja zur Erde selbst wie taumelnd stürzten, Fallsüchtigen ähnlich. Als wir des Trinkens satt geworden, ging es auf den Markt. Zuerst kam uns entgegen ein ungeheurer Gnotenschwarm, der mit gezückten Schwertern auf uns sich stürzte. Da schlugen wir mit mutigem Sinn, dass sie besiegt uns endlich den Rücken zeigten, viele auch so schwer verwundet, dass kaum noch Lebenshoffnung übrig ist. Bald durch den Lärm gerufen, stürzte sich auf uns der Wache Schar, in Waffen blitzend. Auch diese wurde in die Flucht gejagt. Traun, vor Lachen wäre ich fast gestorben, als die, denen noch das Heil der Stadt vertraut ist, so schändlich flohen'. Stymmels Stück fand über-grossen Beifall. Melanchthon liess es "zum grossen Gefallen der Gelarten' zweimal in Wittenberg auf-führen. Dieses Ansehen erbte sich fort, so dass es nachweisbar noch in 21 Ausgaben vorhanden ist" (M. Bauer, Sittengeschichte des deutschen Studententums, Dresden, 1926, p. 140-141)."Stymmel richtet das Stück in seinem an die Konsuln und Senatoren der Stadt Frankfurt adressierten Dedikationsbrief an die Väter und Söhne, Die Kinder sollen durch das Schicksal des Aco-lastus und des Acrates von den Verführungen der Freizügigkeit des Sudentenlebens gewarnt warden. Den Vätern will Stymmel an negative Beispiel der "patres' in seinem Drama vorführen, dass sie sich ihren studierenden Kinder gegenüber weder zu grosszügig noch zu sparsam zeigen sollen" (Th.Brüggemann e O. Brunken, Handbuch zur Kinder- und Jugendliteratur. Vom Beginn des Buchdrucks bis 1570, Stuttgart, 1987, col. 511-512).VD 16, S-9848 (two copies); USTC, no. 694784 (two copies); P.

Grecé & latiné simul iam, in eorum qui pariter & geographiæ et utriusque linguæ studiosi sunt, gratiam editi: olim quidem, ut putatur, à Guarino Veronensi, & Gregorio Trifernate in latinum conversi: ac deinde Conrad I Heresbachij opera ad eius generis autorum fidem recogniti: nunc verò postremùm, eruditorum aliquot industria ac studio, quorum in præfatione fit mentio, ab innumeris, quibus æquè & græcum exemplar & latina translatio scatebant, medis repurgati.

      1549 - Basel, per Henrichum Petri, 1549, mense augusto. Folio. (32),797,(1,1 blank,1) pp. Printer's woodcut device on last page. Small woodcut on p. 782. Contemporary pigskin binding, somewhat worn and soiled, with raised bands, richly blind-stamped covers, clasps preserved. Front joint starting. Occasional spotting. Title leaf with somewhat soiled marginals and a dampstain at bottom, which reoccurs here and there on the first five hundred pages. Ink stain on p. 95 and a few larger stains on pp. 657-60. Small wormhole from p. 355, which grows larger and is joined from p. 671 by several growing wormholes, which becomes one large wormhole on the last twenty pages, all in the lower margin. The wormholes do not however disturb the text. Many contemporary underlinings and marginal notes in both Latin and Greek and several beautiful little pointing hands. Last page full of partly crossed-out and smudgy contemporary notes. Small Greek note on front flyleaf. Title leaf with erased old signature at bottom and inscription "Ex bibliotheca patris, Matth. Floderus, Upsaliæ 1788". Signature of E. A. Almquist from 1794 och Wilhelm Malm's signature dated Uppsala 3 mars 1835 on front pastedown. Small bookplate of And. Persson in Västerås. A nice and interesting volume.VD16 S 9344. A similar edition with only (8) pages in the beginning was also printed. Greek-Latin parallel text in columns. The woodcut on p. 782 is a small map on which Libya with Carthage and the Nile are visible but placed far to near each other. Strabo (c. 63 BC-21 AD.) was a Greek geographer whose only fully preserved work is this extraordinarily valuable geography in 17 books. A trip around the Eastern Mediterranean territories gave him firsthand knowledge of these areas, which he could use in his geographical description, which also contains information on literature, cultural history, medicine and natural history. Besides his own experiences Strabo based his work on earlier authors such as Eratosthenes, Poseidonios and others. The first books cover Western Europe, Britain, Gaul, Britanny, Italy, Sicily, Sardinia and Corsica. Book seven describes the northeastern parts of Europe while books nine and ten deal with Greece. The descriptions of Asia begin in book eleven with the main emphasis on the Middle East, including Assyria, Babylonia, Mesopotamia and, Arabia, and also India. The last book covers Egypt and Africa. Matthias Floderus (1766-1822) was, after an academic career, made vicar of Rasbo and Kil in Uppsala archdiocese in 1797. He was also a great collector. Eric Abraham Almquist (1767-1830) was bishop of Härnösand. His library was sold at auction in Uppsala in 1832. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HORAE, use of Rome, in Latin. Horae in Laudem beatissimae virginis Mariae, ad usum Romanum

      Paris: Regnault and Claude Chaudiére, 1549. 4to (230 x 158 mm). Collation: a-y8. 176 leaves. Roman types, printed in red and black. Ruled in red. Renaissance woodcut title-border of termini and festoons, printers' device (Colines' Time with his scythe); 14 FULL-PAGE WOODCUTS, combining illustration and architectural frame on a single block, from the Tory atelier (perhaps Jacquemin Woeiriot, three blocks signed with the Lorraine cross, four others similarly signed in the prior Colines state); every text-page within a four-block woodcut or metalcut border, repeated throughout: 12 are outline borders in Geoffroy Tory's Italianate style, 8 black arabesque borders in the niello manner. Binding: contemporary Parisian gold-tooled calf over pasteboard, the sides decorated to a complex design of intersecting curved double fillets, with gouges and open tools, the ribbons painted black, green and white à la cire, name of the original owner, IANE PETITROUX, lettered in gilt in the center of both covers, flat spine decorated with the repetition of a large hatched floral tool, gilt and gauffered edges; gilt morocco pull-off case. Paint flaked, extreme corners repaired or worn, joints restored, renewed split in front joint. Provenance: Jeanne Petitroux (binding); Henri-Auguste Brölemann (armorial bookplate, shelf label and inscription); Maggs Bros. (cat. 484, no. 354); Fritz Kreisler (Parke-Bernet Galleries 27 Jan. 1949, lot 170); purchased from John F. Fleming 1962. RARE EDITION of the Tory-inspired Book of Hours that was first published by Simon de Colines in 1543, reissued by his successors Regnault I and his son Claude Chaudiére. The same blocks were used for the illustrations and borders, from four of which the Lorraine cross signature was removed, presumably because Tory's shop was no longer active. These two editions are among the finest examples of French Renaissance printed book decoration. Particularly striking are the black arabesque borders, which recall niello-filled metal engraving as well as artists' pattern books of the period. The male portrait in the border of the Raising of Lazarus cut on m1v represents François I, according to Mortimer, the female portrait probably Eleanor of Austria. No other binding executed for the original female owner, Jeanne Petitroux, has been found. Similar designs and the large open tool above and under the name can be seen on bindings by Wotton Binder B and the Cupid's Bow Binder, but do not allow a positive identification. Adams L-1046; Fairfax Murray French 280; cf. Harvard/Mortimer French 306. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

      Accessit rerum et verborum memorabilium locupletisz. index. Basel, per Henrichum Petri, 1549, mense augusto. Folio. (32),797,(1,1 blank,1) s. Tryckarmärke i träsnitt på sista sidan. Litet träsnitt på s. 782. Samtida ngt nött och lite solkigt svinläderbd med upphöjda bind, rikt blindpressade pärmar och bevarade spännen. Främre falsen med spricka nederst. Spridda fläckar av olika slag. Titelbladet med något solkiga marginaler och en fuktrand nedtill som sedan återkommer här och där de första femhundra sidorna. Bläckfläck på s. 95 och några större fläckar på s. 657-60. Ett litet maskhål från s. 355 växer sig större och kompletteras från s. 671 med flera växande maskhål som blir ett stort maskhål de sista tjugo sidorna, alla i nedre marginalen. De stör dock inte texten. Mängder av samtida understrykningar och marginalanteckningar på både latin och grekiska samt flera små vackra pekande händer. Sista sidan fullskriven med delvis överstrukna kluddiga samtida anteckningar. Liten grekisk anteckning på försättsbladet. Titelbladet med bortskrapad gammal namnteckning nedtill och anteckning "Ex bibliotheca patris, Matth. Floderus, Upsaliæ 1788". På frampärmens insida E. A. Almquists namnteckning från 1794 och Wilhelm Malms namnteckning daterad Uppsala den 3 mars 1835. Med And. Perssons i Västerås lilla exlibrisetikett. Trevlig och intressant volym. VD16 S 9344. En snarlik edition med endast (8) sidor i början trycktes också. Grekisk-latinsk parallelltext i spalter. Träsnittet på s. 782 är en liten karta där man ser Libyen med Kartago och Nilen, vilka dock ligger alldeles för nära varandra. Strabo (omkring 63 f.kr.-21 e.kr.) var grekisk geograf vars enda fullständiga bevarade arbete är denna hans utomordentligt värdefulla geografi i 17 böcker. En rundresa kring östra Medelhavet gav honom förstahandskunskaper om dessa områden vilka han kunde utnyttja i sin geografiska beskrivning som också innehåller information om litteratur och kulturhistoria, medicin och naturhistoria. Vid sidan av sina egna erfarenheter byggde Strabo på äldre författare som Eratosthenes, Poseidonios m.fl. De första böckerna avhandlar västra Europa, Storbritannien, Gallien, Bretagne, Italien, Sicilien, Sardinien och Korsika. I bok sju beskrivs nordöstra delarna av Europa medan bok åtta och nio handlar om Grekland. Beskrivningen av Asien inleds i bok elva med huvudvikten på Mellanöstern. Utöver det beskrivs Assyrien, Indien, Babylonien, Mesopotamien, Arabien etc. Den sista boken behandlar Egypten och Afrika. Matthias Floderus (1766-1822) utnämndes efter en akademisk karriär 1797 till kyrkoherde i Rasbo och Kil i Uppsala ärkestift. Han var en stor samlare och vän till Claes Fleming och C. C. Gjörwell. Eric Abraham Almquist (1767-1830) var biskop i Härnösand. Hans bibliotek såldes på auktion i Uppsala 1832.

        La nobiltà delle donne... -

      Venezia, Giolito, 1549. In-8 picc. Legatura del '600 in vitellino chiaro, filetti dorati sui piatti, dorso con nervi e fregi oro; dorso restaurato, cerniere un po' usate. Marca tipografica sul frontespizio ed in fine, e qualche iniziale istoriata. (10), 272, (4) ff. + (2) ff. di errata; internamente fresco esemplare. Rara prima edizione. Il libro è composto da cinque lunghi dialoghi in cui vari letterati, uomini e donne, discutono dei meriti del gentil sesso. L'opera è ripiena di curiose osservazioni, come quelle sul matrimonio che Domenichi consiglia a dottori, leggisti e medici, meno agli astrologi, umanisti e grammatici - perché troppo impegnati negli studi e poco adatti alla vita domestica - mentre considera cattivi mariti i filosofi, occupati di notte a meditare su strane idee ed utopie! L'ultimo dialogo contiene notizie sulle più virtuose e belle donne del tempo in diverse città d'Italia. «... de' molti libri usciti nel cinquecento in difesa e lode del sesso femminile, il presente è uno dei più ampi...» (Bongi, Giolito, 247). Erdmann 29. First edition of an important work in praise of women, containing interesting biographical details on various Italian ladies noteworthy for their virtue or beauty, and many curious observations, such as those on the qualities of marriage depending on the husband's profession. Printer's device on title and some decorative initials. A fresh copy bound in 17th century calf, spine repaired, joints starting.

        DER HEILIGEN XII

      Wittenberg: Georg Rhau, 1549. FIRST EDITION. 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.

        Augustini Niphi Medicis Libri duo, De pulchro, primus. De amore, secundus.

      - Lugduni, Godefridum & Marcellum Beringos [Lyon, Godefroy et Marcellin Beringen], 1549. In-8, plein vélin souple de l'époque, 277, (3) p., tranches ciselées. Deuxième édition de ce rare traité sur la beauté et l’amour, composé par l’humaniste, philosophe et universitaire italien Agostino Nifo (1473-1539?). "Après la réhabilitation des sens, Nifo confère au plaisir corporel, procuré par la beauté, une valeur inédite: non seulement le plaisir est légitime en lui-même mais il totalise l’ensemble des jouissances humainement possibles. Par-là, l’auteur libère l’amour humain, cupido, de l’accusation de bestialité sous-tendue par la hiérarchie ficinienne des trois amours ( ). Le ‘De Pulchro et amore’ donne une expression philosophique aux aspirations sensuelles des traités du XVIe siècle" (Constance Malard). D’abord défenseur d’un averroïsme sans concession, Nifo élabora une synthèse originale entre un aristotélisme éclectique et un néo-platonisme qu’il poussa dans ses derniers retranchements. Sa polémique avec Pomponazzi sur l’immortalité de l’âme le rendit célèbre. L’ouvrage est dédié à Jeanne d’Aragon. Cf. l’édition critique donnée par Laurence Boulègue, éd. des Belles Lettres, 2011. (Adams, N-288. Baudrier, ‘Bibliographie lyonnaise’, III, 48). Provenance: La bibliothèque lyonnaise de Justin Godart (1871-1956), homme politique et philanthrope, avec son ex-libris gravé.

      - Lovanii, Apud Seruatium Sassenum Diestensem, M. D. XLIX. [Lovaina, 1549] In 8.º (de 19,5x13 cm) com [xxxii] fólios. Encadernação recente em réplica de pergaminho flexível ao gosto da época. Os 3 comentários sobre a Guerra de Cambaia, na Índia, são uma primeira edição, raríssima, de um dos mais importantes relatos do segundo cerco de Diu, em 1545. Este constituiu um dos mais celebrados feitos heróicos dos portugueses no Oriente, tendo a cidade de Diu, a partir dessa data, ficado sob o domínio português até 1960. Damião de Góis (1502-1574), historiador e humanista, natural de Alenquer, foi uma das grandes figuras portuguesas do século XVI. Entre 1523 e 1533 foi secretário da Feitoria Portuguesa em Antuérpia. A partir desta data, dedica-se aos seus trabalhos históricos e literários, convivendo e correspondendo-se com diversos humanistas, entre os quais Erasmo de Roterdão e Pietro Bembo. Em 1548 assumiu o cargo de guarda-mor da Torre do Tombo. Em 1571 foi vítima de um processo da Inquisição, chegando a ser preso. Está sepultado na Igreja de Santa Maria da Várzea em Alenquer. A maior parte das suas obras latinas foram publicadas fora de Portugal, tendo sido objecto de numerosas re-edições. In 8.º (19.5x13 cm). [xxxii] folios. Binding: Modern replica in flexible parchment, contemporary style. This is a very rare first edition of the three reports about the Khambhat War in India, and include one of the most important accounts on the Diu siege in 1545.This was one of the most celebrated victories of the Portuguese in the Far East and from that date on Diu was under Portuguese domain until 1960. Damião de Góis (1502-1574), historian and humanist, was a great figure within the Portuguese cultural scene of the 16th century. Between 1523 and 1533 we was secretary of the Portuguese Trading post in Antwerp. From this date he dedicates to his historical and literary works, exchanging letters with several humanists, among them Erasmus of Rotherdam and Pietro Bembo. In 1548 he was nominated Chief Librarian at Torre do Tombo (Portuguese archives officially existing since 1378). In 1751 was arrested by the Inquisition. He died in 1574, presumably murdered, and he is buried in the Church of Santa Maria da Várzea in Alenquer. Most of his Latin works were published outside Portugal, having been edited several times.

        Ein Gesprechbüchlein zweyer schüler, Wie einer den andern im zierlichen schreyben untherweyst.

      Nuremberg: Johann Petrus, 1549. Quarto. (20)ff. First edition. The book opens with a wood-engraved title and is illustrated with a folding plate of a calligraphic alphabet, as well as numerous calligraphic illustrations in the text. This is the first edition of the first comprehensive textbook for the art of calligraphy. It was developed in Germany during the time of Durer. Johann Neudörffer (1497-1563), the elder, was a great Nuremberg writing master. He was the founder of German calligraphy and considered the most important and most influential German calligrapher of his time. Neudörffer originally wrote the Gestprechbuchlein for his son and namesake, but his brother-in-law, the printer Johann Pertrus, explains in his preface that he persuaded Neudörffer to let it be published. The text is in the form of seven dialogues between the master, Neudörffer, and his pupil, Stephan, with a summary of the rules of calligraphy on the last pages of text. The letter samples are in Fraktur, and woodcuts are used for the pen preparation illustrations. Minor repair to folding plate, some minor staining, else fine in black morocco with a slipcase. Bookplate to front paste-down and small booklabel on rear paste-down. (Bonacini 1274; Graesse IV:660; Berlin Kat. 4787).

        Le premier livre de l'histoire & ancienne cronique de Gerard d'Euphrate, Duc de Bourgongne.

      Paris, Vincent Sertenas, 1549. ____ Première édition. Parmi les plus beaux livres illustrés de la Renaissance, ce volume, par son illustration, peut rivaliser avec le "Songe de Poliphile" ou l' "Homére" publié par Sertenas en 1545. Il est orné 46 bois gravés, répétés à partir de 27 blocs de diverses provenances. Trois grandes planches (ff. 9, 25 et 28) sont d'une "composition très originale et d'une qualité exceptionnelle. ... Elles sont dignes du talent de Jean Goujon." (Brun). Le nom de Jean Cousin a aussi été proposé. Ce roman est adapté en prose, par Nicolas de Herberay, de l'histoire de "Girard de Fraite", rebelle à Charlemagne, qui apparaît pour la première fois au XIIe siècle, dans la "Chanson d'Aspremont". Bien que le privilège soit accordé pour six livres, c'est le seul qui ait été publié. Provenances : - "A mon cabinet de Lissy". (Inscription manuscrite de l'époque sur le titre) Il s'agit probablement de Léon Lescot, seigneur de Lissy, frère de Pierre Lescot, architecte du Louvre. - "M. Wadhull, Apr. 14th 1794" et "Payne's sale" (notes de la même main sur les feuillets de garde). Le dos a discrètement été refait. Très bel exemplaire. Brun 213. Brunet 2, 1546. Mortimer, Harvard catalogue 246. *-------* First edition. This is one of the best illustrated French books of the Renaissance. It is decorated with 46 woodcuts, repeated from 27 blocks of various origins. Three large woodcuts (ff. 9, 25 and 28) are of " a very original composition and of exceptional quality." (Brun) "Of particular interest is the use of black figures with white details, in the third block, for the Ethiopians before the throne of the king of the underworld. ... As is usual with work of this quality, the names of both the elder Jean Cousin and Jean Goujon have been proposed in connection with these blocks, but no really satisfactory attribution has been made." (Mortimer). Though the privilege extended to a total of six planned volumes, only this volume was published. Provenances : - "A mon cabinet de Lissy",(note on the title page). Probably Léon Lescot, seigneur de Lissy, brother of Pierre Lescot, one of the Louvre's architect. - Wadhull, who wrote his name in it, with the date of Apr. 14th 1794 and recorded its purchase at the "Payne's sale" In-folio. Collation : (6), 137 ff., 1 f. bl. Veau brun, dos orné. (Reliure vers 1800.).

        Les illustrations de Gaule et singularitez de Troye. Avec la couronne margaritique & plusieurs autres oeuvres de luy, non jamais encore imprimees. Le tout reveu & fidelement restitué par maistre Antoine du Moulin Masconnois, valet de chambre de la Royne de Navarre.

      Lyon, Jean de Tournes, 1549. ____ "Edition la plus belle et la plus complète de ce recueil." (Brunet) La Couronne margaritique publiée après la mort de l'auteur par Cl. de Saint Julien, est ici en première édition. Lemaire des Belges tente de prouver, sous couvert de la fiction mythologique et héroïque, que les Germains et les Gaulois sont d'illustres descendants des habitants de l'ancienne cité de Troie. L'ouvrage comprend notamment le "Traité de la différence des schismes et des conciles", violent plaidoyer gallican après le retournement du pape contre la France. La Couronne margaritique a été rédigée en l'honneur de Marguerite d'Autriche. PROVENANCES : I - Annoté en français par Jérôme Capelle, frère de l'Ordre des Minimes. Nous avons compté 106 annotations pour les "Illustrations" et 201 annotations pour le "Traicté de la différence des schismes". Certaines de ces notes sont particulièrement copieuses. Trois nous donne le nom de l'annotateur. On lit : (1) Scolies & annotations par frère Hierosme Capelle minime sur ce livre des Illustrations afin d'exposer aucuns passages et éviter aucuns erreurs - l'an 1560" (Illustrations, p. 3); (2) "Scolies de frère Hierosme Capelle minime sur ce historiographie françois commencées l'an 1560" (Illustrations, p. 8); (3) "Annotations faictes par frere Hierosme minime l'an 1560 a fin que les lecteurs ne cheoyent en erreurs" (Traicté de la difference des schismes..., p. 6) ; Des recherches en archives permettront peut-être de trouver des éléments biographiques sur Jérôme Capelle; ou encore d'autres livres annotés par lui dans des collections publiques voire celle de Peiresc lui-même. Hierosme Capelle était-il relié d'une manière ou d'une autre à la famille de Guillaume Cappel (né en 1530), humaniste, éditeur des Mémoires de Guillaume et Martin du Bellay, traducteur de Machiavel (1553) ? La famille de Guillaume Cappel ou Capel - une famille de Parlementaires de Paris - comptait d'autres humanistes, dont Ange Cappel, traducteur de Sénèque et Tacite ou encore Louis Cappel, ardent partisan de la Réforme. II - Claude de Fabri (1545-1608), seigneur de Calas, frère de Reynaud de Fabri et oncle de Nicolas Claude Fabri de Peiresc. On relève son ex-libris "Claude Fabrii" sur le titre, accompagné de la devise "Sub fide clara". Installés à Aix dès 1515, les Fabri, furent seigneurs barons (puis marquis en 1657) de Rians, seigneurs de Valavez (ou Valavoire), Callas et Peiresc. Claude de Fabri était conseiller en la sénéchaussée au siège d'Aix, reçu conseiller-clerc au parlement de Provence au mois d'octobre 1572, en la charge de son père. Il se démet de sa charge en faveur de son neveu Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc en 1607 et lui transmet son poste de conseiller au parlement d'Aix. Célibataire sans enfant, Claude Fabri s'est occupé de l'éducation de son neveu. Il a donc joué un rôle très important dans la vie de Peiresc. Ce dernier adresse un certain nombre de ses lettres à son oncle. III - Bibliothèque de l'érudit et bibliophile Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Pereisc (1580-1637), relié à son monogramme, avec son cachet au titre. Peiresc est né en à Belgentier (Var). Il fut étudiant à l'Université d' Avignon, ami du président du parlement Guillaume du Vair, puis reçu conseiller en la cour du parlement de Provence le 26 juin 1607 en la charge de Claude de Fabri son oncle. Par la suite il sera nommé abbé et seigneur de Guîtres en Guyenne (diocèse de Bordeaux) en 1623 avec la faculté de continuer ses fonctions de conseiller au parlement. Peiresc reçut pour prénoms ceux de son grand-père et de son oncle qui étaient tous deux conseillers au Parlement d'Aix. L'office de conseiller au Parlement était à peu près équivalent à celui de député aujourd'hui par la fonction exercée et représentait un niveau social très élevé. Et dans la famille de l'humaniste, bien avant cette date, l'office de conseiller passait déjà d'une génération à la suivante tel un précieux patrimoine qu'il fallait préserver. IV - Georges Dubois, ex-libris contrecollé sur le contreplat supérieur. (1966). Très belle reliure attribuable à Simon Corberan, le relieur aixois de Peiresc. De légères mouillures, coiffe supérieure restaurée.Cartier, Bibliographie des éditions de Tournes 145. Brunet 3, 965 : "Edition la plus belle et la plus complète de ce recueil. La Couronne margaritique publiée après la mort de l'auteur par Cl. de Saint Julien, n'est pas dans les autres éditions." - Tchemerzine IV, 161 : "Très belle édition." *-------* "Edition la plus belle et la plus complète de ce recueil" [Most elegant and most complete edition of this compilation] (Brunet). First edition of the the Couronne margaritique, published posthumously and composed in honour of Marguerite of Austria. The main work, Les illustrations de Gaule et singularitez de Troye, is a mythological and heroic fiction in which Lemaire de Belges sought to prove the ancient Trojan origins of the Germans and Gauls. The present compilation also contains the Traité de la différence des schismes et des conciles, clearly partisan of the gallican position following the Pope's adversarial stance towards France. PROVENANCE: I. Profusely annotated in French by Jérôme Capelle, brother of the Order of Minims. We have counted some 106 annotations in the 'Illustrations' and 201 annotations for the 'Traicté de la différence des schismes'. Some of these notes are lengthy. Three of these clusters of annotations reveal the name of the annotator. One reads : (1) 'Scolies & annotations par frère Hierosme Capelle minime sur ce livre des Illustrations afin d'exposer aucuns passages et éviter aucuns erreurs l'an 1560' (Illustrations, p. 3); (2) 'Scolies de frère Hierosme Capelle minime sur ce historiographie françois commencées l'an 1560' (Illustrations, p. 8); (3) 'Annotations faictes par frere Hierosme minime l'an 1560 a fin que les lecteurs ne cheoyent en erreurs' (Traicté de la difference des schismes, p. 6). Further archival research will certainly yield biographical information pertaining to Jérôme Capelle or supply a working list of other annotated imprints in institutional holdings, perhaps also amongst Peiresc's personal collection. Was Hierosme Capelle related in some manner or other to members of Guillaume Cappel's family? Born in 1530, Guillaume Cappel was a humanist, editor of the Mémoires of Guillaume and Martin du Bellay, as well as translator of Machiavelli (1553). The family of Guillaume Cappel (or Capel) was a family of Parisian members of Parliament: other members of this family included Ange Cappel, translator of Seneca and Tacitus; Louis Cappel, ardent partisan of the Protestant Reformation. - II. Claude de Fabri (1545-1608), seigneur de Calas, brother of Reynaud de Fabri and uncle of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc. His ex-libris 'Claude Fabrii' is found on the title-page, with his motto 'Sub fide clara'. Settled in Aix as early as 1515, the Fabri were 'seigneurs barons' (and later promoted 'marquis' in 1657) of Rians, seigneurs de Valavez (ou Valavoire), Callas and Peiresc. Claude de Fabri was 'conseiller en la sénéchaussée au siège d'Aix', admitted as 'conseiller-clerc' in the Parliament of Provence in October 1572, replacing his own father. Claude Fabri relinquished his position in favor of his nephew Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc in 1607 and also passed on his counciller position ('conseiller au parlement d'Aix'). Bachelor without children, Claude Fabri was responsible for the education of the young Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc and was thus a key figure in the young boy's upbringing. Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc left a number of letters addressed to his uncle. - III. Library of Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Pereisc (1580-1637), learned scholar and bibliophile; the work is bound with his characteristic gilt monogram, and his monogram stamp is repeated on the title-page. Peiresc was born in Belgentier (Var). He pursued his studies at the University of Avignon, was a friend of Guillaume du Vair (President of the Parliament of Provence) and was himself admitted as « conseiller en la cour » of the Parliament of Provence on 26 June 1607, succeeding his uncle Claude Fabri. Subsequently, Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc was appointed abbot and lord of Guîtres in Guyenne (diocese of Bordeaux) in 1623 whilst maintaining the right to pursue his functions as 'conseiller au parlement'. Peiresc was given as Christian names those of his grand-father (Nicolas) and uncle (Claude), both councillors (conseillers) in the Parliament of Aix. The position of 'conseiller au Parlement' was akin today to that of member of Parliament and ensured a highly prestigious social standing. In Nicolas-Claude Fabri de Peiresc's family, the position was inherited from generation to generation, a well-guarded and well-protected patrimony. - IV. Georges Dubois, his ex-libris pasted on the upper pastedown (1966). Very attractive binding attributable to Simon Corberan, binder from Aix who worked for Peiresc. A few waterstains, upper spine restored, else in fine condition. In-folio. [225 x 330 mm] Collation : (16), 423, (1), 9 pp., 1 f. bl., 80, 72 pp. Maroquin rouge, filets dorés d'encadrement sur les plats, chiffre de Peiresc doré au centre, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure du XVIIe.).

        Della Nobiltà et Eccellenza delle Donne, dalla lingua francese nella italiana tradotto. Con una oratione di M. Alessandro Piccolomini in lode delle medesime. In Vinegia, appresso Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, 1549 (Legato con:) LUIGINI, Federico Il Libro della Bella Donna, Venezia, Plinio Pietrasanta, 1554

      2 opere in 1 volume in-8. Legatura coeva in pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso. I) AGRIPPA: ff. 36, impresa dello stampatore al titolo e in fine, belle iniziali istoriate. Terza edizione giuntina (prima 1544) della traduzione italiana del ''De nobiltate et praecellentia foeminei'' di Agrippa, composto nel 1509 e dedicato a Margherita d'Austria. In questo trattato, dalla notevole fortuna editoriale, venne infatti subito tradotto in francese, inglese, italiano e tedesco, l'autore tratta il tema della misoginia cristiana; della superiorità delle donne a suo avviso stabilita da Dio stesso; enumera poi una serie di donne eccellenti dell'antichità e della Bibbia; infine fa una sorta di analisi sociale della figura femminile nel XVI secolo. La traduzione in italiano, dedicata dal Giolito a Bona Maria Soarda, è generalmente attribuita a Francesco Coccio e si basa, non sul testo latino, ma sulla traduzione francese di Louis Vivant. Bongi cita una traduzione italiana antecedente a quella del Giolito, anonima e senza data e luogo di pubblicazione, probabilmente impressa a Venezia intorno al 1530 (Edit 16 n. 544). II) LUIGINI, pp. 230 (i.e. 130), (4, di cui ultimo f. bianco). Edizione originale di uno dei lavori più sistematici di descrizione e analisi della bellezza femminile nel XVI secolo. L'opera, dedicata a monsignor Giovanni Manini, è divisa in tre libri, corrispondenti a tre giornate; nei primi due sono presi in esame gli elementi che concorrono a delineare il modello di bellezza esteriore femminile, nel terzo le virtù interiori su cui predomina la castità. Interessante assieme. (Antiche note di possesso abrase ai titoli ed in fine, usuali lievi arrossature della carta).

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.

Le illustrazioni che adornano il testo sono attribuite a Geoffroy Tory, alcune recano la croce di Lorraine. "Le molte tavole in legno di bella esecuzione . rendono chiara l'intelligenza di queste ottime opere" (Cicognara, n. 1579, ed. 1563). Le opere qui contenute trattano di argomenti relativi alle imbarcazioni dell'antichità, del vestiario e dei vasi antichi in lega d'oro e d'argento. In fine è aggiunto il trattato sui colori di Telesio, ripreso poi da Goethe per la sua "Theory of Colors" (prima ed. Tübingen, 1810). Bell'esempl. assai fresco e marginoso (con abile minuto restauro all'angolo super. bianco di tutti i fogli). BMC, French, 39. Adams B-37. Berlin Kat. 885. Lipperheide 99 (ediz. 1541). Colas I, p. 64 (altre ediz.). Graesse I, 314. Renouard, Les Estienne, p. 75, n.22. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Title within woodcut border, almanac, and calendar printed in red and black. text in black letter. 269 of 292 leaves. lacking 23 leaves: M1, 8; N3-5 and 8; O2, 4, 6-8; P1-2 and 7-8; Ff1-2; Kk2.7; Mm2,7' and 2li2; washed and pressed with strong residual staining and discoloration, margins strengthened or extended throughout, particularly corners. nineteenth century divinity calf over beveled boards. Tooled in black, marbled endpapers, red calf lettering piece, edges stained red. The two leaves containing the table of Epistles and Gospels (not present in this copy as in most), do not properly belong to the book; their signature is li, and they were printed by T. Petet, not by W. Tylle. Apparently they were borrowed from some edition in which li was their correct signature... and added just before publication, in order to give the Epistles and Gospels according to the Prayer Book of March 1549. The rest of the book is adapted to the Salisbury Use. Herbert Reference #77.Shelf
