Nicolaus Medler
Viet Creutzer (Diet Kreutzer), Wittenberg, 1550. Rare 16th century Mathematics work, from the Lutheran professor Nicolaus Medler, on how to calculate cube roots. This copy is bound wonderfully, and was withdrawn from the library of Erwin Tomash (focused on The History of Computing) and can be found in the library catalog. Note: this is a short work, please review pagination and collation (page count). About the Author - A Lutheran theologian and reformer. Medler was a preacher, parish official, and math teacher, among other roles. His biography is long, but some highlights include preacher at Wenceslas Church, preacher at Naumburg Cathedral, teacher at Anstadt and Hof, Superintendent of thirty-two churches, and "court preacher' in Bernberg to Prince Wolfgang von Anhalt. He received his master's degree and doctorate in theology from the University of Wittenberg. It is thought that he wrote part of the school regulations for the Wittenberg order, which were confirmed by Martin Luther. His close proximity, and advanced participation in the church, indicate he probably personally knew Martin Luther. About the Printer - As printer in Wittenberg, Viet Creutzer (Diet Kreutzer) printed many protestant works including those by Luther and Melanchthon (eg. Main Articles of Christian Doctrine, or Loci Theologici). Records indicate Cruetzer printed between 1541 and 1563. About this Work - A stamp on the flyleaf indicates the bookbinder, "Lobstein-Laurenghet", perhaps referring to the French binder Alain Lobstein.

Die eerste sullen die laetste, die laetste die eerste sijn.With: (2) [JORIS, David]. Een twesprake tusschen man unde wijff, namelick Christus un[de] de gemeente oder verlorene mensch.[Rostock, Ludwig Dietz, ca. 1550/52]. 8vo (15.5 x 11 cm). With gothic initials and a vine-leaf ornament. Set in schwabacher types with incidental and fraktur. Vellum (ca. 1680?). [211], [1 blank]; [71], [1 blank] pp. Rare first editions of two important works by David Joris, in the original Dutch, his Die eerste sullen die laetste ... sijn being his most extensive work except for his famous tWonder boeck. The title alludes to Matthew 19:30: "many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first", a message that no doubt appealed to the poor and oppressed. The social critic John Ruskin made a similar allusion (to Matthew 20:14) in the title of his 1860 Unto this last.Probably born in or near Bruges, Joris moved in 1524 to Delft, where he quickly gained notoriety as a dangerous religious radical and joined the Anabaptists in 1533, but in the wake of the disastrous Anabaptist rebellion at Münster in 1534/35 he spoke out against radicals in the movement and urged non-violence. In the 1540s and 50s he wrote and published extensively, mostly short spiritual and mystical works, but continued to arouse controversy and had to flee in 1543/44 to Basel where he lived the rest of his life. He devoted himself to writing, emphasizing personal, internal faith above dogma and ceremony, inspiring a broad public as well as leading figures such as Michael Servetus. With an owner's name "v. Wicht" on the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small 4to (20 x 14.5 cm). With about 300 woodcut illustrations in the text (nearly all botanical, with a few animals, including an elephant) including a few repeats (2 on the title-page, 4 facing the first page of text and at least 1 in the text). Later sheepskin parchment. [22], "CLXXVI" [= CLXVI] ll. Extremely rare edition of one of the most important early French herbals, first published at Besançon (and Lyon?) ca. 1486/88 under the title Arbolayre and in Paris beginning in 1498 under the present title. More than half the text is a French adaptation of the Latin "antidotium" Dispensarium or Circa instans, attributed to Matthaeus Platearius or Matteo Plateario (d. 1161?) at Salerno and first printed at Venice in 1471. Other parts are based on the writings of Avicenna (Ibn Sina), Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi, Hippocrates and other ancient medical authorities. "There is probably no book in all of herbal literature which has caused greater bibliographical confusion than Le grant herbier. ... Complete and undamaged copies are almost unheard of." (Anderson).

Epitome sive breviarium totius praecedentis historiae Anglorum ...Antwerp, Joannes de Grave (Gravius), 1550. Folio. With De Grave's woodcut armorial device on title-page (repeated on the otherwise blank final leaf) and 30 woodcut decorated initials. Contemporary blind-tooled calf, each board with a double border made from a roll with 4 heads in profile, not labelled but showing Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon, Desiderius Erasmus and apparently the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V rather than the more common Jan Hus, each in an oval wreath and separated by foliage (bilaterally symmetrical both vertically and horizontally). With a ca. 1680 endleaf and early 19th-century spine labels and marbled paste-downs. [6], 263, [1 blank], [12] pp. Second and most important edition, in the original Latin, of the greatest work by the father of English history, the Venerable Bede (672/73-735 AD), his Ecclesiastical history of the English people, completed ca. 731 AD. It begins with the Roman invasion of England in 55 BC and covers the introduction of Christianity to England and the entire history of England up to Bede's own day. Although nominally a religious history it remains the most important source for English history in general for its period. Few works have ever dominated a subject as much as Bede's history, which established the notion of English history, served as the most important source for his period for nearly every writer who foll … [Click Below for Full Description]

ESTIENNE, Robert.
Alphabetu[m] Hebraicum. Cum privilegio regis. Paris, Robert Estienne, 1550. 8vo. With Estienne's woodcut tree device on title-page. Set in Hebrew (meruba and rabbinical), roman and Greek types. Early sheepskin parchment wrappers. [24] pp. Third edition, showing the beautiful Hebrew types introduced in the second edition (1543), of Robert Estienne's handy little guide to Hebrew, intended mainly as a primer for scholars learning the language but especially valuable today as a specimen of his types. The book's pages progress from right to left, as in a Hebrew book. It includes complete alphabets of the meruba Hebrew and the smaller rabbinical Hebrew.Robert Estienne (ca. 1503-1559), the greatest scholarly printer and publisher of the French golden age, worked at Paris from 1526 to 1550 and at Geneva from 1550 to 1559. He published a combined guide to Greek and Hebrew in 1528, but expanded both parts for separate publication in 1539. The 1539 Alphabetum Hebraicum introduced the present rabbinical Hebrew type, but its meruba Hebrew was a rather poor type that he abandoned in the second edition (1543), where he introduced three new meruba Hebrews, all used again in the present edition. All three were cut in-house for Estienne ca. 1539-1542 by Jean Arnoul, also known as Picard le jeune (ca. 1510/15?-ca. 1545). Although Picard's name is little known today, no doubt due in part to his premature death, Le Bé's son described him as "homme le plus adroit a la proportion & grace des caracteres quil fut en ce templa". The present Hebrew types, some of the best ever made, show he deserved … [Click Below for Full Description]

De alchimia opuscula complura veterum philosophorum, quorum catalogum sequens pagella indicabit. (Dedication: Frankfurt, Cyriacus Jacob, 1550). Part 1 (of 2). Small 4to (19.5 x 15 cm). With a large woodcut illustration on title-page, hand coloured by an early hand, and Jacob's woodcut printer's device on the last otherwise blank page. 17th-century(?) limp sheepskin parchment. [3], [1 blank], 168 ll. First edition of a collection of nine alchemical tracts, including De tinctura metallorum by Ibn Sina, known in Europe as Avicenna. Ibn Sina was one of the most significant thinkers and writers of the Islamic golden age and his bibliography comprises nearly 270 titles. "Ibn Sina studied the philosophical and scientific foundations of this subject [alchemy] and even undertook alchemical experiments. His conclusion regarding its validity, however, is negative" (DSB). It also includes two works by Raymond Lull, one of the most interesting scholars of the Middle Ages, one by Aristotle; and five anonymous ones. A second part was published in the same year containing only one work: the famous Rosarium philosophorum. It can be regarded as a separate publication and is not included here.With contemporary manuscript annotations in the margins, underscoring throughout, an early owner's inscription (struck through) and some other notes on the title-page. The annotations slightly shaved, somewhat browned throughout and waterstains in the first half of the book, but otherwise in good condition. Binding very good.

Veau blond du premier tiers du XVIIIe siècle, dos à nerfs orné de l'aigle polonais, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, triple filet doré encadrant les plats, armes au centre, dentelle intérieure. Saut de foliotation entre les feuillets 72 et 75, sans manque. Coiffes restaurées, première charnière fendue et accidentée en pied, petit travail de ver marginal des feuillets 70 à 86, avec atteinte à la dernière lettre d'une ligne sur trois feuillets. Première édition, posthume, de l'influente adaptation de l'érudit toscan Firenzuola. "On parle d'une édition des Giunti 1549, in-8, qui serait la première de cet ouvrage, et très rare ; mais il paraît qu'elle n'a jamais existé. [ ] C'est donc celle-ci de 1550 qui est la première. Elle est jolie, fort rare, et entière ; ainqi que celles des Giunti, 1566-67 ; toutes les suivantes sont mutilées." (Renouard, Catalogue de la bibliothèque d'un amateur, III, p. 168). En 1550, Agnolo Firenzuola, écrivain toscan ami de l'Arétin, proposa une nouvelle version apuléienne qui allait supplanter la première traduction italienne, donnée par Matteo Maria Boiardo à la fin du XVe siècle. La plus grande réussite de l'édition de Firenzuola provient de l’appropriation totale de l’histoire par l’auteur. La ligne du texte latin, hormis quelques détails, est suivie avec précision. Cependant, L’auteur ne narre plus, à la première personne, les mésaventures de Lucius le Grec, mais celles d’un narrateur qui porte son propre nom, Agnolo ; et les p … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERULA, Gaudenzio
Venice: Giolito De Ferrari, Gabriele & fratelli, 1550. An Unnoticed Sixteenth-Century AmericanumSecond edition (first published Borgolavezzaro: In Foro Lebetiorum, 1546)1 of Gaudenzio Merula's book of wonders, a term here used loosely and perhaps with imprecision, for it is difficult to characterize this brief compendium of fact, myth, rumor, and prognostication. The Memorabilium, which is principally alchemical and astrological (natural and juridical), also contains short sections on subjects as variable as sports, aromatics, and the manufacture and use of love potions. Perhaps most compelling is the present edition's status as an Americanum: in the first section, De Aquis, the following lines can be found: Vltra Hispaniolam occidentis insulam Bonicam insulam esse aiunt-Hispani, cuius aquæ potu reiuuenescāt senes. Aqua maris hyeme est calidior æstate frigidior, Autumno salsior.2The reference in Merula's work to the fountain of youth on the island of Bonica (also called Boiuca or Agnaneo), that is to say Bimini, first mentioned by Peter Martyr in his Legatio Babylonica [Seville: Cromberger, 1511], appears to have gone unrecorded by bibliographers of Americana.3 Merula was charged with heresy in 1554, endured trial, and was forced to subtract and repudiate all material in the Memorabilium that was offensive to the Church. A curious work, uncommon in commerce. Octavo, 160 x 106 x 18 mm (binding), 155 x 105 x 12 mm (text block). 64 ff., A-H8.

Small 4to (20 x 14.5 cm). With about 300 woodcut illustrations in the text (nearly all botanical, with a few animals, including an elephant) including a few repeats (2 on the title-page, 4 facing the first page of text and at least 1 in the text). Later sheepskin parchment. [22], "CLXXVI" [= CLXVI] ll. Extremely rare edition of one of the most important early French herbals, first published at Besançon (and Lyon?) ca. 1486/88 under the title Arbolayre and in Paris beginning in 1498 under the present title. More than half the text is a French adaptation of the Latin "antidotium" Dispensarium or Circa instans, attributed to Matthaeus Platearius or Matteo Plateario (d. 1161?) at Salerno and first printed at Venice in 1471. Other parts are based on the writings of Avicenna (Ibn Sina), Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi, Hippocrates and other ancient medical authorities. "There is probably no book in all of herbal literature which has caused greater bibliographical confusion than Le grant herbier. ... Complete and undamaged copies are almost unheard of." (Anderson).

ESTIENNE, Robert.
Alphabetu[m] Hebraicum. Cum privilegio regis. Paris, Robert Estienne, 1550. 8vo. With Estienne's woodcut tree device on title-page. Set in Hebrew (meruba and rabbinical), roman and Greek types. Early sheepskin parchment wrappers. [24] pp. Third edition, showing the beautiful Hebrew types introduced in the second edition (1543), of Robert Estienne's handy little guide to Hebrew, intended mainly as a primer for scholars learning the language but especially valuable today as a specimen of his types. The book's pages progress from right to left, as in a Hebrew book. It includes complete alphabets of the meruba Hebrew and the smaller rabbinical Hebrew.Robert Estienne (ca. 1503-1559), the greatest scholarly printer and publisher of the French golden age, worked at Paris from 1526 to 1550 and at Geneva from 1550 to 1559. He published a combined guide to Greek and Hebrew in 1528, but expanded both parts for separate publication in 1539. The 1539 Alphabetum Hebraicum introduced the present rabbinical Hebrew type, but its meruba Hebrew was a rather poor type that he abandoned in the second edition (1543), where he introduced three new meruba Hebrews, all used again in the present edition. All three were cut in-house for Estienne ca. 1539-1542 by Jean Arnoul, also known as Picard le jeune (ca. 1510/15?-ca. 1545). Although Picard's name is little known today, no doubt due in part to his premature death, Le Bé's son described him as "homme le plus adroit a la proportion & grace des caracteres quil fut en ce templa". The present Hebrew types, some of the best ever made, show he deserved … [Click Below for Full Description]

With De Grave's woodcut armorial device on title-page (repeated on the otherwise blank final leaf) and 30 woodcut decorated initials. Contemporary blind-tooled calf, each board with a double border made from a roll with 4 heads in profile, not labelled but showing Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon, Desiderius Erasmus and apparently the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V rather than the more common Jan Hus, each in an oval wreath and separated by foliage (bilaterally symmetrical both vertically and horizontally).

It begins with the Roman invasion of England in 55 BC and covers the introduction of Christianity to England and the entire history of England up to Bede's own day. Although nominally a religious history it remains the most important source for English history in general for its period.

With a large woodcut illustration on title-page, hand coloured by an early hand, and Jacob's woodcut printer's device on the last otherwise blank page. 17th-century(?) limp sheepskin parchment. [3], [1 blank], 168 ll. First edition of a collection of nine alchemical tracts, including De tinctura metallorum by Ibn Sina, known in Europe as Avicenna. Ibn Sina was one of the most significant thinkers and writers of the Islamic golden age and his bibliography comprises nearly 270 titles. "Ibn Sina studied the philosophical and scientific foundations of this subject [alchemy] and even undertook alchemical experiments. His conclusion regarding its validity, however, is negative" (DSB). It also includes two works by Raymond Lull, one of the most interesting scholars of the Middle Ages, one by Aristotle; and five anonymous ones. A second part was published in the same year containing only one work: the famous Rosarium philosophorum. It can be regarded as a separate publication and is not included here.With contemporary manuscript annotations in the margins, underscoring throughout, an early owner's inscription (struck through) and some other notes on the title-page.

Venetiis: Ioan. Gryphius excudebat, [1550], 8vo, 145 x 96mm. pp. 567, [65], Woodcut diagrams in the text and a fine world map on p 144. Early quarter vellum, with brown mottled paper boards, manuscript title on the spine. A very attractive copy, with annotations in the text by Segneri This copy has a famous provenance, belonging to the first Jesuit, preacher and writer of the Seventeenth-century Paolo Segneri and then to the great librarian from Lucca Giuseppe Martini. Written by Ambrosius Macrobius, this is a commentary on Cicero's Dream of Scipio. It includes a rare woodcut map of the world, illustrating Cicero's interesting theories. This diagrammatic map shows two distinct regions of the earth. The inhabited Afro-Eurasian continent was balanced by an unknown, and relatively equal, landmass (Temperata Antipodum Nobis Incognita) on the other side of an impassable torrid zone (Perusta) and a great boiling sea (Alveus Oceani). It was this notion of antipodean balance and landmass equivalence that continued to attract Renaissance minds to the geographical ideas of Macrobius. Distinguished cartographers like Mercator and Ortelius would later incorporate Macrobius' model into an immense southern continent (Australis Incongita) to balance the known lands of the world, and the division of the world into climactic zones is still in use today. According to King, this example of the ancient world is the 5th version, published by Sebastian Gryphius in Lyons. What is most notable is that his 'geographic concept . is different from that of Ptolemy' (Shirley). The northern half of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dedica a Cosimo de Medici, Principe della Repubblica Fiorentina. "Prima edizione" dell’opera più importante dello storico comense Giovio (1483-1552). Gli “Historiarum sui temporis” sono costituiti da 45 libri dedicati al cinquantennio che va dalla discesa nel 1494 del re francese Carlo VIII in Italia fino al 1547 (i libri sono in effetti di numero inferiore perchè dal V al X, dedicati agli avvenimenti accaduti fra il 1498 e la morte di Papa Giulio II (1513), sono trattati solo da epitomi e quelli dal XIX al XXIV, relativi al decennio 1517-27, non furono mai scritti). Composti nell’arco di un’intera esistenza le "Historiae" registrano le diverse reazioni che la storia del suo tempo produsse nel loro autore. Il senso di grandezza che pervade i primi libri cede alla disillusione che informa gli ultimi: questi traboccano delle insanabili contese che opponevano i monarchi cristiani e riflettono lo spirito di un’esistenza passata a testimoniare come tali conflitti, inutili e s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Munster Sebastian
Splendida pianta prospettica di Venezia a volo d'uccello risalente al 1550, raffigurante la città storica di Venezia e la sua laguna. Bellissimo il contrasto tra la calma della laguna veneziana ed il mare agitato vicino alle spiagge. La veduta include due caselle di testo con la descrizione della città e la sua storia. L'abbonamento delle strutture architettoniche della città richiama finemente alcuni dettagli delle chiese, dei palazzi e delle mura. In acqua di possono vedere alcuni velieri. La carta stilografica in bianco e nero è tratta dalla "Cosmographia" di Sebastian Munster. Esemplare rifilato ai margini laterali, per il resto buono stato. This beautiful 1550 bird's-eye view of Venice depicts the historic city of Venice within the Venetian Lagoon. Rendered beautifully to contrast the calm shallow lagoon with the turbulent seas beyond the sand banks, the view depicts the sestiere of Venice and includes two text blocks describing the city and its history. The generalized style of many of the buildings allow finer architectural detail in churches, buildings, and city walls to stand out. A few sail boats can be seen in the waters. This map is from the 1550 edition of Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia," a text that, when first published in 1544, was the earliest German description of the world. Tecnica: Xilografia

Vinegia,: appresso di Agostino Bindoni, 1550. Vinegia, appresso di Agostino Bindoni, 1550. In-24 gr. (mm. 141 x 90), mz. pelle settecentesca con ang., dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su due tasselli, tagli rossi, 92 cc.num., compreso il frontespizio (entro cornice decorata) inc. su legno; ben illustrato nel t. da 9 pregevoli vignette, pure silografate; testo in corsivo. Dedica al marchese Federico di Mantova. “Poema cavalleresco composto con intenti satirici da Teofilo Folengo e pubblicato nel 1526 e 1527, in due ediz. diverse, con lo pseudonimo Limerno Pitocco (Limerno è anagramma dello pseudonimo Merlino, con cui l’A. scrisse le "Maccaronee"). Il poema in otto canti vuole illustrare la vita del piccolo Orlando, ma la folla dei motivi satirici e burleschi fu tale nell’affrettata composizione, che per gran parte non si parla che dei suoi genitori: Milone (paladino di Carlo Magno) e Berta, principessa reale”. Così Diz. Opere Bompiani,V, p. 302. Cfr. Melzi,II,132 - Brunet,II,1320 che cita varie ediz. veneziane del ‘500 e precisa: “Ces diverses éditions sont également rares, mais on préfère généralement la dernière (1550)” - Graesse,II,609 - Adams,I, p. 443. Corto di margini, altrim. esempl. ben conservato.

GHISI GIORGIO
GHISI GIORGIO SINONE E I TROIANI. , 1550 ca., in basso al centro: " J.B. MANTUANUS; in basso a sinistra l'indirizzo di Antonio Lafreri. Bella e poco comune incisione del Ghisi tratta da soggetto di G.B. Scultori. La scena rievoca l'incontro fra il greco Sinone e i soldati Troiani intenti a trasportare il cavallo di legno dentro la città. Sinon racconta ai soldati di essere riuscito a scappare dai suoi compagni che avrebbero voluto sacrificarlo agli Dei, con ciò propiziandosi la possibilità di un sicuro ritorno. I Greci in fuga -sempre nel racconto di Sinone riportato dall'Eneide- avrebbero costruito e lasciato il cavallo per placare l'ira di Minerva: se il cavallo fosse stato portato dentro Troia avrebbe reso la città ricca e fortunata…. Molto buono (Very Good) buon es.. bulino in quarto cm. 47 x 36

FOLENGO Teofilo.
in-16, pp. 189, 1 cb, leg. settecentesca cart. rust. con tit. mss al d. Bel front. inciso in xilogr. con tit. in edicola e le iniziali ZAV che contraddistinguono questa rara edizione come la ristampa dell'editore veneziano Giovanni [Zuan] Andrea Valvassori [1530-1573] sull'edizione dei Bindoni dello stesso anno. Rara edizione dell'operetta forse più irriverente scritta dal Folengo con lo pseudonimo di Limerno Pittocco, in cui si raccontano le gesta del giovane Orlando. Signorini (a cura di), Folengo perchè, 1977, p.90: "Il poemetto è dedicato al Marchese Federico II Gonzaga ed è diviso in tre parti: capp. I-VI gli antefatti ovvero le vicende di Milone e Berta, figli di Carlo Magno; cap. VII la nascita di Orlandino e le sue proprie gesta; cap. VIII fra Griffarrosto.... Si tratta di un'opera chiaramente polemica, nata in due o re mesi, dallo sdegno del poeta contro i denigratori della sua opera maccheronica... Il volgare folenghiano raggiunge... toni decisamente aspri e non di rado osceni... specie nell'ottavo capitolo dedicato alla figura di un frate ghiottone e ignorante". Melzi II, p.132. Graesse II, p.608. Melzi, Bibliografia dei romanzi di cavalleria..., 1864, p.192. Cordiè, L'Edizione principe..., 1949, p.81: "[Bindoni] avranno cura del nuovo poeta maccheronico e ristamperanno l'Orlandino [...] fin con un'edizione che fu contraffatta, se proprio non è un'edizione minore". Dall'Ara, Folengo, 2004, p.98: "Folengo arrabbiato, che si sfoga con un instant book, scritto in tre mesi. La storia si rifà a Guidone, Baldovina e Baldo, dunque all'esordio del Baldus...
