STYMMELIUS Christoph
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 st … [Click Below for Full Description]

Desiderius Erasmus (1466? - 1536) composed the Latin text of his 'Moriae Encomium' (note the punning title in Greek: ΜωρΠας ΕΠκώμΠον), that 'brilliant and biting satire' (PMM), while staying at the Old Barge, the house of his close friend, Sir Thomas More, during the winter of 1509 - 1510; it is likely that the satire arose out of the Lucianic discussions for their joint translation that led also to the publication of More's 'Utopia'. Erasmus' narrator is the female morosoph 'Folie' ('Stultitia' in the original Latin) who expounds her … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

CRANACH, LUCAS THE ELDER, Illustrator. POLLICARIUS, JOHANNES
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plutarch
Michele Tramezino, Venice 1549 - An early Italian translation of a miscellany of Plutarch's Moralia. In 1543 this printer Tramezino (Venice) produced the 1st vulgar translation, this is his 2nd edition and rare (at the time of this listing I can't find a 1549 edition on the market). With interesting American provenance (see "Provenance" below). From a 2 volume set, this book is volume 1 and includes ten works from the Moralia including: 1. The tranquility and security of the soul 2. On the Love of Wealth 3. Restraining the Soul 4. On Virtue and Vice 5. How to Know a Friend from a Flatterer 6. How to Profit by One's Enemies 7. How to Bring up Children 8. Fruit of the Virtuous & Good 9. On Beautiful Things 10. How to Keep in Good Health About the Work - Plutarch was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist, known primarily for his Parallel Lives and Moralia. He is classified as a Middle Platonist. Moralia is an eclectic collection of seventy-eight essays and transcribed speeches. Provenance - I can't find the match for the lower bookplate, but the unicorn bookplate belongs to the author Henry Harcourt Horn, who wrote the autobiographical An English Colony in Iowa. The Horn House, in Decorah Iowa is on the National Register of Historic Places. "The house was built by Henry Harcourt Horn, a native of Hertfordshire who was part of the English Colony in the Decorah area. The colony was established in the early 1860s, principally by well-to-do Englishmen who tried to become gentleman farmers. Most of them, including Horn, failed. Horn moved into Decorah and tried his hand in a … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIFO (Agostino)
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. Signature autographe ancienne sur la tranche supérieure: "Capuccini". Quelques auréoles et pliures à quelques feuillets.

Demosthenes, Wolf, Hieronymus Ulpianus [sofista]
Ioannes Oporinus, 1549. Volume in folio legato in pergamena (dorso rinforzato ab antiquo, mende e piccole mancanze, restauri), titolo calligrafato al dorso a 4 nervi a vista, sguardie, frontespizio, 7 carte, 144, 283, 192 pp.. Le prime tre parti delle orazioni di Demostene. Un eccezionale documento, non è per nulla comune reperire un'edizione cinquecentesca delle Filippiche e dell'altre splendide concioni del Principe degli Oratori. Un vero peccato la mancanza del quarto e quinto segmento dell'opera. Il volume è in bello stato, impresso su magnifica carta greve e croccante, pochi quaderni con una lieve arrossatura, infime ed ininfluenti mende d'uso. Notevole.
