PRATENSIS, Jason.
FIRST EDITION. The first book devoted entirely to brain disorders, including tremor, tetanus, vertigo, apoplexy, epilepsy and hemicrania. "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). This substantial but very rare book has escaped the attention of most of the historians of psychiatry, neurology, and of specific disorders such as Temkin (The Falling Sickness) despite a 30-page chapter on epilepsy, Still (History of Paediatrics) and a similar chapter on infants, etc. etc. There is also a substantial chapter on apoplexy. Jason Pratensis, or à Pratis (1486-1558), the son of a doctor, studied in Louvain and in Antwerp. He later became a court physician and a town official, living his whole life on the island of Walcheren, practising in the small town of Zyriksee where he was born. He was a friend of Tycho Brahe. G&M 4511.02. Norman catalogue 1740.

Gribaldi, Matteo; Matthias Flacius (ed.)
Magdeburg: Michael Lotte, 1549. First edition. Octavo. 30pp. Half vellum over green boards. A distressing story about an individual who was forced to recant his belief in Christianity by the enemies of the Gospel in Welsch Switzerland. Initials and small endpiece. Religious tract explicating strict Christian interpretations by the Italian legal scholar Matteo Gribaldi describing the struggle of Franciscus Spira (Francesco Spiera), a respected and affluent Italian jurist in Padua, that ended in tragedy. Spiera had developed doubts about Roman Catholic teachings after reading various evangelical writings. He was subsequently arraigned before the Inquisition in Venice and repudiated his views in June of 1548. Following the abjuration of his "errors," having denied "the truth" as he saw it, Spiera fell into a severe state of despair which affected him so gravely that he had to consult physicians. The treatments were unsuccessful and Spiera succumbed to the complications arising due to this episode. The foreword is written by the controversial Lutheran reformer Matthias Flacius Illyricus, known for his adaptations of the Augustinian concept of original sin and his disapproval of Roman Catholic premises. His leanings towards a scientific study of church history can be seen as a precursor to modern hermeneutics. He was born in Istria, today Croatia, studied in Italy and Switzerland and was appointed professor of Hebrew at Wittenberg in 1544. He moved on to Magdeburg in 1549. Text in German. Vellum missing on spine showing printed paper underneath, with small ink stain and ver … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fuchs, Leonhard
DE HISTORIA STIRPIUM COMMENTARII INSIGNES. Apud Balthazarem Arnolletum, Lvgdvni, 1549. Hardcover, paper-covered boards. Paper label to spine.Red staining to fore-edges. Second Lyon edition, A very early Fuchs herbal with over 500 woodblock Botanical cuts. Title-page, portrait to verso, introduction and Indexes (29 pages) + 852pp. The scarce Lyon second edition of 1549, the first printing in a smaller version of the woodcuts used in the first massive folio edition published in Basle in 1542. The smaller editions of Fuch's great work were intended for use in the kitchen, in the field and the apothecary's shop, so they are rarely found, as here, in clean unmarked condition, often suffering the indignity of grubby fingers, damp stains, general wear and tear and spillages. Fuchs (1501-1566), professor of medicine at Tubingen, set out to show the largest number of plants for use as herbs and drugs.

SCUOLA di FONTAINEBLEAU
Bulino, 1545-1549 circa, privo di data e iscrizioni. Ottimo esemplare, inchiostrazione forte e uniforme, rifilato all'interno del segno del rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Questa stampa appartiene a una serie di dodici incisioni; sei delle quali mostrano due busti maschili ciascuno, e gli altri sei, busti femminili. È comune trovare questi busti stampati due per foglio e il set descritto serie di ventiquattro stampe. I disegni originali sono conservati a Parigi, nell'Ecole nationale superieure des Beaux-Arts (Mas. 1296, Rec. 19). Le stampe erano generalmente attribuite a René Boyvin; mentre Robert-Dumesnil pensava addirittura che i soggetti fossero di Rosso Fiorentino. Ma Yves Metman, sulla base di un documento del XVI secolo, propose di assegnare le stampe a Pierre Milan e di stabilire quale terminus ante quem il 1559 ("Un graveur inconnu de l'Ecole de Fontainebleau: Pierre Milan", in Bibliothèque d'Humanisme et Renaissance , Notes et documents, I, 1941, pp. 202-214.). Emmanuelle Brugerolles, invece, attribuisce i disegni a Léonard Thiry (Le dessin en France au XVIe siècle: dessins et miniatures des collections de l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts, 1994, pag 108); ipotizzando che Thiry avrebbe potuto usare un modello di Rosso poi adattato per l'incisione. Questo set ha ottenuto un notevole successo ed è stato riprodotto e copiato molte volte. EA Carroll ha suggerito che le maschere non fossero modelli di costumi come comunemente sostenuto, ma che potessero essere progetti per "immagini di maschere con pietre colorate, probabilmente per decorare le pareti o il pavimento di una … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philostratus Lemnius.
Florence: Lorenzo Torrentino, 1549. Good/First edition in a modern language of the novelistic biography of Apollonius of Tyana by the Hellenistic writer Philostratus of Lemnos (d. 230). Aldus had published a Latin translation at the beginning of the century, but popular clamor grew as Apollonius came to be seen as a sort of Jesus, or a parallel Jesus, or an alternative Jesus, or perhaps the real Jesus.No less than three major publishing houses rushed to get an Italian version of Philostratus out to the public. Torrentino's issue, translated by Francesco Baldelli, came out ahead of rivals Comino and Giolito. The volume also included a translation of an invective by Eusebius against Hierocles for promoting the "Christian" attributes of Apollonius. (Modern scholarship has questioned Eusebius's authorship.) . Octavo ( 17 cm); 723, [21] pages, last blank. Woodcut initials. In contemporary (or 17th century) vellum-covered boards, with leather label titled in gilt. Titled in manuscript on bottom edge. Pages not bright, with some light staining throughout. 19th-century armorial bookplate in chromolithograph. Vellum doesn't want to close in dry weather. References: Schweiger, Greek, 232; BM Italian 512, Adams P-1071. Gamba 1394 ("Bella edizione"). See also Bongi, 252.

Three historically significant 16th century Protestant Reformation texts bound together during the period. Book enriched by a contemporary ex-dono manuscript inscription. The first title was written by the influential Italian Protestant Reformer, Celio Secondo Curione (1503-1569). The author exposes his principles of Christian Faith. The second work, is seemingly an unrecorded and very early (eventually first) edition of a text on pedagogy conceived by Reinhard Lorich (circa 1510-1564), the active German Protestant pastor, student at the University of Wittenberg in 1521 (center of the Reformation movement), professor the University of Marburg from 1527, rector of the same university in 1539, teacher in Hadamar in 1541 and pastor from 1548. No exemplar has been located in public libraries worldwide. USTC lists three copies in Europe for the same work, issued the same year, but with a different imprint and signatures. The present edition also states at the title the name of the author "Aut. Reinhardo Hadamario". Finally, the book includes a third work by Joachim Camerarius (1500-1574), the German humanist and Lutheran theologian, who in 1530 assisted Philipp Melanchthon creating the Augsburg Confession. WorldCat locates only one exemplar of a later edition held by a library in the Americas (Harvard), listing six copies of this edition, the fourth?, of nine?, which were published during the author's lifetime. The book is enriched by a contemporary ex-dono manuscript inscription in Latin on the front paste down, pointing first ownership by a Reformation theologian named "Henric … [Click Below for Full Description]

Al-Razi, Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Zakariyya (Rhazes) / Alexander Trallianus.
Strasbourg, Rémy Guédon, 1549. 8vo. (48), 662, (2) pp. With woodcut printer's device on title-page, repeated on verso of final leaf. 18th century half calf with marbled boards and title giltstamped to spine. First Latin edition of this collection, published in Greek by Stephanus in Paris the previous year (itself a translation from Syriac): the twelve books on medicine by Alexander of Tralles, the first parasitologist in medical history (and the younger brother of Anthemius, architect of the Hagia Sophia), issued with al-Razi's classic treatise on smallpox and measles ("Kitab fi al-Jadari wa al-Hasaba"), also known as "Peri loimikes" or "De pestilentia": the first book ever published on smallpox. Indeed, al-Razi was the first physician in the history of medicine to differentiate between smallpox and measles, and consider them as two different diseases. The influence of his diagnostic concepts on Muslim medicine was very clear, especially on Ibn Sina. This work gained great popularity in Europe and was also translated into French, English and German; Brockelmann states it saw some 40 Latin editions between 1498 and 1866. - Al-Razi (also known as Rhazes; 850-923 or 932) is considered the greatest mediaeval physician next to Avicenna; he also conducted alchemical experiments. According to his biographer al-Gildaki, he was blinded for refusing to share his secrets of chemistry. - Binding lightly rubbed. Light brownstaining throughout, with a waterstain to the upper edge.

Bound in contemparary vellum panelled and gilt with fleuron to corners and large elegant Arabesque central piece; monogram E. L. Z. H. on both covers (Ernst Landgraf zu Hessen), gilt edges. Gilt oxidated, ribbons renewed, very light foxing but a very attractive copy. Editio princeps of the fragments from books VI-XVII of Polybius' Histories, with Latin translation by Wolfgang Musculus, and second edition of books I-V, reproducing the Latin translation given by Niccolò Perotti in the early 1450s. This edition was committed to the Basler printer Johannes Herwagen (Hervagius) by Arnoldus Arlenius Peraxylus (c. 1510-1582), a Dutch humanist and a librarian to the Spanish ambassador in Rome, Diego Hurtado de Mendoza, to whom the work is dedicated. As Peraxylus says in his dedicace to Mendoza, the Greek text of books VI-XVII was transmitted by a collection of abridged fragments that he had found in his master's private library, the so-called Excerpta Antiqua. Since Mendoza's manuscript (Scorialensis VI B6) was lost in the Escorial during the fire of 1671, the 1549 edition is now the only source for its readings. Polybius (c. 200-120 BC) was the most important and influential Greek historian of the Hellenistic Age. A leading politician in his own homeland and a man of war before being a historian, Polybius was deported in Rome in 167 BC as a detainee, after the Third Macedonian War.

Ejemplar con el ex libris de Ricardo Heredia Livermoore(Conde de Benahavis) y nr inventario a lapiz en esquina hoja de respeto.Muy buen ejemplar de esta rara edición. Juan Boscán Almogaver (o Joan Boscà i Almogàver, 1493-1542), poeta y traductor español que, aunque catalán, compuso su obra exclusivamente en lengua castellana. De familia noble, recibió una excelente formación humanística y sirvió en la Corte de los Reyes Católicos y después en la del emperador Carlos I de España. Fue preceptor del Duque de Alba En la Corte conoció a otro gran poeta amigo suyo, don Diego Hurtado de Mendoza; éste le dirigió la famosa Epístola a Boscán. El caballero catalán se casó con una culta dama valenciana, doña Ana Girón Rebolledo. Viajó a Italia como embajador español. Allí encontró al caballero toledano Garcilaso de la Vega con quien entabló una gran amistad; seguramente al aprecio que Boscán sentía por la obra del poeta valenciano Ausiás March se deben las reminiscencias de éste que hay en algunas de las composiciones del poeta manchego.
