SÉNÈQUE;
Venise, Aurelio Pincio, 1549 In-12 de (8), 680 pp., (11) ff., vélin ivoire, dos à nerfs orné de caissons de fleurons dorés, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches dorées (reliure du XVIIe siècle). Très rare édition originale en italien des Lettres du célèbre stoïcien. C'est l'éclat littéraire de la ville de Florence - incarné par Le Dante, Pétrarque ou bien encore Boccace - qui imposera au début du XVIe siècle le toscan comme la norme de l'italien moderne. Littérateur, bibliographe, polémiste, l'auteur de cette traduction, Anton Francesco Doni (1513-1574), entra jeune dans l'ordre des servites, avant d'être sécularisé comme simple prêtre. Incarnant une sorte de pauvre diable errant des lettres, il fut ami avec l'Arétin et Domenichi, avant de se brouiller avec eux. Vignette de titre, marque typographique au verso du titre et au recto du dernier feuillet, lettrines historiées, gravées sur bois. Très bel exemplaire en vélin doré ancien. La dorure du dos est particulièrement élégante.

Translated by Jean Belon. Throughout, nearly each plant page extra-inscribed with label in upper margin, written in English in a 17th-century hand. A glossary started on rear leaf, facing colophon, is in French and Latin with the English equivalent for sixteen plants, as in “Armoise Mugworth” and including those translations for “sowthernwood, swordgrass, dill, housel leek, motherwort, rest harrow, dwarf elder, St. John’s wort, winter cherry...”. Near contemporary vellum; (lacking two leaves of first gathering (index), small repair to *ij and small loss to aij, title strengthened at gutter, very few spots of dampstaining, otherwise good). Some early ink annotations canceled on the front pastedown, some legible in English, like the brazen “A curious Herbal in French, with 519 plants, binding bad – 1549.” (We attest the period vellum is lovely). Over these inscriptions, unidentified armorial bookplate of ducal crown, eagle, and rampant lion with motto “Spes mea in deo.” First preliminary leaf enhanced with a period index … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Très belle édition", selon Tchemerzine, des Illustrations de la Gaule, la dernière avant le XIXe siècle. Elle a été donnée à Lyon, tout comme la première (sans date, sans doute en 1509 selon le privilège).Pendant quatre décennies les éditions, augmentées, rééditions, nouveaux formats, se succèdent à un rythme soutenu puis cessent brutalement après 1549. Cette édition des de Tournes, datée de cette même année, contient La Couronne Margaritique, en l'honneur de Marguerite d'Autriche, tante de Charles Quint, que l'on ne trouve pas dans les précédentes (Tchemerzine IV, 161).Dans les Illustrations, Lemaire de Belges (1473-1524) reprend et développe en prose les mythes d'une ascendance biblique des Gaulois, depuis Noé, et de l'origine troyenne des Francs, issus de Francus fils d'Hector, thème dont Ronsard fera, quelques années plus tard, le sujet de son poème épique, la Franciade.

STYMMELIUS, Christoph (Stummel, 1525-1588)
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.

FORCATULUS STEPHANUS
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. Rara edizione originale.Cfr. Baudrier, V, 383; Iccu; non in Sapori. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"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.

Corpus Juris (Iuris) Civilis,
1549. VD17 1:013029E (Band 1) u. VD17 1:013036P (Band 2). - Neudruck der von Denis Godefroy (1549-1622) erstellten und 1583 erstmals im Druck veröffentlichten ersten kritischen Gesamtausgabe der vom oströmischen Kaiser Justinian I. angeordneten Zusammenstellung und Kodifikation des gesamten römischen Rechts. Von Godefroy stammt auch die Bezeichnung "Corpus Iuris Civilis". Seine Bearbeitung blieb bis in das 19. Jahrhundert hinein die grundlegende für die Beschäftigung mit dem römischen Recht. Der Corpus Iuris Civilis ist in Digestae, Institutiones Iustinianae, Codex und Novellae unterteilt. In der vorliegenden Ausgabe hat der "Codex" ein eigenes Titelblatt. Dies sollte dem Buchbinder eine etwas handlichere Aufteilung in zwei Bände ermöglichen. Der eigentliche Gesetzestext ist jeweils von den Noten des Godefroy eingerahmt. - Kupfertitel u. Porträt angestaubt u. mit mehreren Randeinrissen, die ersten beiden Lagen etw. gelockert, im ersten Teil eine Seite (Sp.721/722) mit kl. Ausschnitt im unteren weißen Rand, bei 2 Seiten fehlt eine Ecke (ohne Textverlust), gelegentlich etw. fleckig u. schwach wasserrandig, wenige Seiten haben etw. spätere handschriftliche Anmerkungen, die vermutlich von dem auf dem Titel als Besitzer genannten Jeremias Friedrich Krause aus Frankfurt an der Oder stammen (dat. 1785). Es fehlt die letzte Textseite (tabellarische Aufstellung).

GALENUS, CLAUDIUS
Basel, Hieronymus Frobenius et Nicolaus Episcopius 1549. 2 volumes in 1 binding, 756 columns (378 p.), 844 columns (422 p.) (2) p. 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.).

Marsilio Ficino 1433-1499

Errata at end of v. 2.] Second edition These two volumes are both bound in limp vellum, although not matching. and are stored in a custom folding box. Marsilio Ficino (1433-99) directed the Platonic Academy in Florence, and it was the work of this Academy that gave the Renaissance in the 15th century its impulse and direction. During his childhood Ficino was selected by Cosimo de' Medici for an education in the humanities. Later Cosimo directed him to learn Greek and then to translate all the works of Plato into Latin. This enormous task he completed in about five years. He then wrote two important books, "The Platonic Theology" and "The Christian Religion", showing how the Christian religion and Platonic philosophy were proclaiming the same message. The extraordinary influence the Platonic Academy came to exercise over the age arose from the fact that its leading spirits were already seeking fresh inspiration from the ideals of the civilizations of Greece and Rome and especially from the literary and philosophical sources of those ideals. Florence was the cultural and artistic centre of Europe at the time and leading men in so many fields were drawn to the Academy: Lorenzo de'Medici (Florence's ruler), Alberti (the architect) and Poliziano (the poet).

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

(2649) Volume raro del celebre controversista e avversario di Lutero J. Cochlaeus, impresso dai torchi del monastero di San Vittore presso Magonza. "Les moines de S. Victor étaient ardemment dévoués au Saint-Siège; vers 1540, ils organisèrent une imprimerie particulière et appèlerent pour la diriger un bon typographe de Mayence, nommé François Behem" (Déchamps, col. 1339); il primo libro ivi pubblicato uscì nel 1540, e la tipografia fu attiva fino al 1577. L'autore dell'opera, J. Cochlaeus, al secolo J. Bobeneck (1479-1552), originario di Wendelstein e canonico a Breslau, fu dotto umanista e accanito avversario di Lutero, autore di innumerevoli testi polemici; resta celebre la "sfida" rivolta a Lutero di confrontarsi con lui in un pubblico dibattito, con la clausola che chi avesse avuto la peggio avrebbe dovuto accettare di essere messo al rogo (la sfida fu accettata, ma finì in modo meno cruento). Il presente volume riporta le principali testimonianze storiche circa l'introduzione e l'uso della messa nella tradizione cristiana, ed i suoi ceremoniali.

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]

Bible. English. 1549.
London: Imprinted by Thomas Raynalde & William Hyll, 1549. Folio. An incomplete copy, see below. A reprint of the 1537 "Matthew's Bible" and interestingly a "treakle" Bible (cf. Jer. 8:22); earlier than the better known "treacle" Bible of 1568, 1578. "In 1537 a revised English Bible known as 'Matthew's Bible' appeared. . . . The ascription to "Thomas Matthew" was nominal . . . its real editor being John Rogers" (Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church).    A large fragment of this early Bible in English, comprising Tyndale's Prologue and then Genesis to the end of Ecclesiastes, but lacking all before leaf A1 and all after Ecclesiastes (i.e., leaf Kk2).    Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released).         Herbert 75; STC (rev. ed.) 2078; ESTC S106941. 19th-century plain sheep, abraded, dry, and top of spine pulled. Lacking all before leaf A1and all after Ecclesiastes (i.e., leaf Kk2). Title-leaf and first leaf of the Kalendar in good facsimile. Many margins defective sometimes costing letters and small words of text and also sidenotes. Priced for its faults, not its considerable interest.

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]

DOMENICHI, Lodovico (1515-64). -
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.
