        Tes Kaines Diathekes hapanta ... Novum Iesu Christi D.N. Testamentum.

      Lutetiae: Ex Officina Roberti Stephani Tall folio (34 cm; 13.25"). [16] ff., 272, 202 pp., [1] f.. 1550 Robert Estienne's 1550 edition, his third edition of the New Testament in Greek, established the textus receptus for subsequent editors. His documentation of collations of fifteen manuscripts (including the Codex Bezae) resulted in the first critical apparatus for an edition of the Bible" (Pelikan). In addition to being a major scholarly achievement, Estienne's work is universally hailed for its typographic beauty: It is printed in the largest of the three fonts of Greek type that Claude Garamond designed, the famous Royal Greek type — the grecs du roi that Robert Estienne ordered on behalf of King Francis I of France. Their design was based on the handwriting of the Cretan copyist Angelo Vergecio. => This is the very first use of this largest size of the Garamond Royal Greek type. Adding to the visual beauty of the typography and aiding the reader in navigating the text is the printer's use of two sizes of foliated and grotesque Greek initials, headpieces of similar design, and a divisional title-page for the second section that begins with the Epistles of Paul. As previously mentioned, the volume offers critical apparatus: This is printed in the inner margin of the text and gives variant readings and additions from manuscripts that Estienne had consulted for collating against the printed text; and the outer margin contains references and the ordinary chapter-numbers and division-letters, A, B, etc. Two versions of => the Estienne printer's device are used in the work: The coiling snake and vine (Schreiber B1) on the main and divisional title-pages and the man standing under an olive tree (Schreiber 10) on the verso of the colophon leaf. Binding: 16th-century red crushed goat (morocco?), round spine, no raised bands, spine richly tooled with an overall, elaborate vine pattern "gilt-extra." The covers have an outer border formed by a triple and single fillet, three of the four tooled in blind and one in gilt, and an inner frame also of a triple and single fillet, but with two in blind and two in gilt; the resulting panel is graced with gilt corner devices and a large gilt center device. All edges gilt and top edge with old ink lettering under the gilt ("Novum Testamentu[m]"). Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding as above, evidence of ties at top, bottom, and fore-edges of boards; a little rubbed. Text with red ruling through p. 43. Occasional light, small stain in upper margin and very occasionally some other spot; perhaps six leaves towards end with old light waterstain across lower outer corner. Very minor worming in some lower margins, not near text. Definitely a very good copy of a => sumptuous book.

        Hexametri Odae et Epigrammata - Carmina

      Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari e Fratelli 1550 Due opere in un volume in 8vo. Legatura del XVIII secolo in piena pelle, dorso a cinque nervi con titolo in oro, tagli rossi, risguardi in carta marmorizzata (piccola macchia sull'angolo inferiore del piatto anteriore). Qualche lieve alone, ma nel complesso bella copia. (I) PRIMA EDIZIONE, dedicata a Caterina de' Medici, della più completa raccolta di componimenti neolatini del Valeriano apparsa durante la sua vita. Ogni sezione dell'opera si apre con una breve introduzione del tipografo Gabriele Giolito, che alla carta 33v conferma la partecipazione attiva dell'autore nella cura editoriale della collezione: «Quae quidem opuscula Pierius iuvenis admodum ediderat, mox diligentius recognoverat, putavi ea non abiicienda atque, ita ut recognita erant, aliis adiungi iussi». Il volume si apre con un lungo componimento georgico, De milacis cultura, dedicato ad Alessandro de' Medici, che tratta della coltivazione della smilace indiana. In vari versi egli commemora poi gli amici e i colleghi conosciuti a Venezia, Roma e Padova: innanzitutto i membri della famiglia Medici, quindi il suo insegnante a Belluno Giosippo Faustino, il poeta latino Pietro Corsi, il nobile protettore romano di umanisti Pietro Mellini, il celebre umanista veneziano Ermolao Barbaro, il poeta Andrea Marone, Andrea Gritti, l'umanista veronese Dante il Terzo Alighieri, Alberto Pio di Carpi, Giovanni Francesco e Giovanni Battista della Rovere, il cardinal Bernardo Dovizi da Bibiena, l'umanista veneziano Marcantonio Sabellico, il cardinal Girolamo Aleandro, i poeti Girolamo Bologni e Aurelio Augurelli, l'erudito Theodorus Gaza, il professore di greco a Roma Agosto Valdo, l'umanista Blosio Palladio, il nobile veneziano Girolamo Donà , cui il Valeriano dedicò la sua prima raccolta poetica, il poeta e soldato Michele Marullo, l'anatomista Gabriele Zerbi, che fu ucciso dai Turchi, l'erudito Aulo Giano Parrisio, l'umanista e professore patavino Giovanni Calfurnio, e molti altri (cfr. J. Haig Gaisser, Pierio Valeriano on the Ill Fortune of Learned Men. A Renaissance Humanist and His World, Ann Marbor, MN, 1999, pp. 261 - 330, inoltre P. Pellegrini, Pierio Valeriano e la tipografia del Cinquecento, Udine, 2002, pp. 85 - 91). Il Valeriano, originario di Belluno, fu nipote dell'illustre grecista Urbano Dalle Fosse (Bolzanio). Questi nel 1493 lo condusse con sé a Venezia. Qui fu introdotto, come egli stesso ricorda nel poema In sodales (Praeludia, 1509), nel circolo di Aldo Manuzio, che comprendeva vari suoi associati e collaboratori (Paolo da Canal, Andrea Navagero, Trifon Bisanti, Andrea Marone, Girolamo Borgia), ed ebbe come maestri il Valla, il Lascaris e il Sabellico, il quale gli suggerì di adottare il nome di Pierio Valeriano. Verso il 1500 si trasferì per motivi di studio a Padova. Nel 1509, in seguito all'invasione di Venezia da parte delle truppe della Lega di Cambrai, si rifugiò a Roma, dove divenne un protetto di papa Leone X, che gli affidò l'istruzione dei nipoti, Ippolito ed Alessandro. Nell'agosto di quell'anno a Roma publicò i Praeludia, la sua prima raccolta poetica. Ricoprì inoltre diverse cariche nell'ambito della chiesa e fu per un certo periodo membro dell'Accademia Pontaniana di Napoli. Dal 1537 si ritirò a Belluno, dedicandosi agli studi e alla redazione del suo capolavoro, i Hieroglyphica (Basilea, 1556), sorta di summa del sapere rinascimentale sui geroglifici. Pubblicò inoltre diverse collezioni di versi neolatini e importanti scritti filologici (cfr. G. Fiocco, Il ritratto storico di Pierio Valeriano, in: "?Archivio storico di Belluno, Feltre e Cadore"?, XXXIII, 1972, pp. 1 - 6, inoltre G. Bustico, Due umanisti veneti: Urbano Bolzanio e Piero Valeriani, in: "Civiltà  moderna"?, 4, 1932, pp. 86 - 103). Edit16, CNCE27007. S. Bongi, Annali di Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari da Trino, stampatore a Venezia, Roma, 1890 - 1897, II, 301 - 302. A . Buzzati, Bibliografia bellunese, Venezia, 1890, p. 12, nr. 16. P. Pellegrini, op.cit., pp. 156 - 157, nr. XXIV. (II) PRIMA EDIZIONE. Considerato dai suoi contemporanei come un novello Pindaro, Benedetto Lampridio fu abilissimo versificatore e sperimentatore nella lingua latina ed effettivamente fu il primo poeta italiano a cimentarsi con successo nella metrica pindarica (cfr. C. Maddison, Apollo and the Nine: A History of the Ode, Baltimore, MD, 1960, pp. 105 - 109). Nato poco prima del 1500, Benedetto Lampridio fu educato a Padova da Marco Musuro. Nel 1513 giunse a Roma e divenne uno degli insegnanti del Collegio dei Greci. La scuola, che fu fondata su iniziativa di Leone X, aveva sede nella casa di Angelo Colocci sul Quirinale e richiamò a Roma il Musuro e il celebre grecista Giovanni Lascaris, cui è dedicato un lungo componimento della presente raccolta. Lampridio fu inoltre coinvolto nei progetti di Leone X per lo sviluppo di una stamperia a Roma che potesse rivaleggiare con quella veneziana di Aldo Manuzio. La prima opera uscita dai torchi della neonata tipografia furono, nel 1515, le Odi di Pindaro accompagnate da un epigramma elogiativo in greco dello stesso Lampridio. Questi nel 1521 lasciò Roma per andare ad insegnare greco a Padova, dove tra i suoi allievi ebbe anche Michel de l'Hospital e il figlio di Pietro Bembo. Nel 1536 divenne precettore di Francesco Gonzaga, figlio del duca di Mantova Federico. Le odi del Lampridio sono di grande interesse sia dal punto di vista metrico per la magistrale imitazione del modello pindarico, sia per la ricchezza di informazioni storiche che contengono. Esse ci illustrano la vita letteraria romana dai primi anni del pontificato di Leone X fino alla ricostruzione della città  da parte di Paolo III dopo il sacco del 1527. La più lunga ed elaborata delle odi è quella sulla villa di Pietro Mellini, che contiene anche vivaci descrizioni dei circoli letterari romani del tempo (cfr. S.P. Revard, Lampridio and the Poetic Sodalities in Rome in the 1510a and 1520s, in: "Acta Conventus Neo - Latini Bariensis, Bari, 1994"? , Tempe AZ, 1998, pp. 499 - 507). Pierio Valeriano nella sua opera cita più volte Lamprido e, in particolare, in un epigramma scherzoso degli Hexamentri (c. 126v) indirizzato alla sodalitas poetica patavina, lo nomina fra le otto Muse, cui egli vorrebbe aggiungersi come nona Musa. Alla fine del volume si trovano stampati per la prima volta alcuni versi di Giovanni Battista Amalteo. Questi si formò a Padova, dove ebbe modo di conoscere Pietro Aretino, Sperone Speroni, Paolo Manuzio e Girolamo Fracastoro. Dopo vari incarichi diplomatici ed un lungo viaggio attraverso l'Europa, fu designato segretario della Repubblica di Ragusa, ma presto si trasferì a Roma, dove entrò al servizio di Carlo Borromeo e fu nominato ciamberlano di papa Pio V. I presenti versi, che furono pubblicati senza l'autorizzazione dell'autore, rappresentano gli unici componimenti latini dell'Amalteo pubblicati durante la sua vita (cfr. L. Berra, Un umanista del Cinquecento al servizio degli uomini della controriforma, in: "L'Arcadia"?, I, 1917, pp. 20 - 48). Nella presente copia la dedica in latino di Lodovico Dolce è indirizzata a Bernardo Zane. Alcuni esemplari recano invece una dedica in italiano a Collatino da Collalto (cfr. S. Bongi, Annali di Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari da Trino, stampatore a Venezia, Roma, 1890 - 1897, I, p. 288). Edit16, CNCE45474. S. Bongi, op. cit., I, pp. 288 - 289. \

        Vocabulario, Grammatica et Ortographia della lingua volgare d’Alberto Acharisio da Cento con ispositioni di molti luoghi di Dante, del Petraca, et del Boccaccio

      alla bottega d’Erasmo di Vicenzo Valgrisio, Venice 1550 - 4to (205 x 145cm). [viii], 316pp., including errata leaf. Printer’s mark on title. Wood-engraved initials, some historiated. Italic type. Contemporary vellum; (slightest dampstaining at lower right corner before p.16; lacking ties, otherwise good, clean pages). Ex-Libris stamp of Umberto Banzi, Dottore, to front free endpaper and title. Accarisi’s seminal work on Italian grammar and vocabulary. A native of Cento, Alberto Accarisi was a well-known Doctor of Law, philologist and one of the first scholars of Italian vocabulary and grammar. This is Accarisi’s second edition of the Vocabulario; his first was self-published in Cento in 1543. Accarisi was also known for an earlier work on grammar, Grammatica volgare (Bologna: 1536), which was reprinted several times, also in French at Louvain in 1555. The Vocabulario is on par with many of contemporary publications of a similar kind and in particular to the previous two lexical vocabularies - considered the first of the Italian language - that is, the Raccolta di voci del Decamerone of Lucilius Minerbi (1535) and the Vocabulario di cinquemila vocabuli Toschi. del Furioso, Boccaccio, Petrarcha e Dante by Fabricio Luna (1536). Accarisi’s Vocabulario encompassed their grammatical, lexical and syntactic problems and it responded to the needs of its dissemination, which had been indirectly suggested by Pietro Bembo to his followers. Accarisi believed a given language is of utmost important and in his work he clearly distinguishes between poetic language and vocabulary prose without artificiality. The Vocabulario procured examples presented by Boccaccio, Petrarch and Dante. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        I SETTE LIBRI DELL'ARTE DELLA GUERRA, di NICOLO MACHIAVELLI cittadino et secretario fiorentino

      No place or printer, 1550.. 1550, small 4to, approximately 210 x 145 mm, 8¼ x 5¾ inches, vignette portrait of the author on title page, at the rear are 7 double page plans of battles and encampments, Italian text, pages: 1-185 plus [18] Figura unnumbered, collation: a-aa4, bb6, bound in modern quarter blue morocco over marbled sides, raised bands, gilt motif in compartments and gilt lettering to spine, marbled endpapers and silk marker. Corners very slightly worn, a few pages lightly age-browned, an occasional small pale damp stain to margins. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. The present work is Part IV of an edition of Machiavelli's writings entitled "Tutte le opere di Nicolo Machiauelli cittadino et secretario fiorentino, divise in 5. parti, et di nuouo con somma accuratezza ristampate", all the volumes of which are dated 1550 on the title page with no place or printer (see Adams M9). Although Adams accepts the date of 1550, others believe that this edition was printed circa 1620 and possibly in Geneva (see Copac, copy held by Warwick University with identical collation). The Art of War (1521), one of only a few works of Machiavelli to be published during his lifetime, is a dialogue set in the Orti Oricellari, a garden in Florence where humanists gathered to discuss philosophy and politics. The principal speaker is Fabrizio Colonna, a professional condottiere and Machiavelli?'s authority on the art of war. The basis for the book is the creation of a modern army.

        Vocabulario, Grammatica et Ortographia della lingua volgare d’Alberto Acharisio da Cento con ispositioni di molti luoghi di Dante, del Petraca, et del Boccaccio

      Venice: alla bottega d?'Erasmo di Vicenzo Valgrisio, 1550. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to (205 x 145cm). [viii], 316pp., including errata leaf. Printer?'s mark on title. Wood-engraved initials, some historiated. Italic type. Contemporary vellum; (slightest dampstaining at lower right corner before p.16; lacking ties, otherwise good, clean pages). Ex-Libris stamp of Umberto Banzi, Dottore, to front free endpaper and title. Accarisi?'s seminal work on Italian grammar and vocabulary. A native of Cento, Alberto Accarisi was a well-known Doctor of Law, philologist and one of the first scholars of Italian vocabulary and grammar. This is Accarisi?'s second edition of the Vocabulario; his first was self-published in Cento in 1543. Accarisi was also known for an earlier work on grammar, Grammatica volgare (Bologna: 1536), which was reprinted several times, also in French at Louvain in 1555. The Vocabulario is on par with many of contemporary publications of a similar kind and in particular to the previous two lexical vocabularies - considered the first of the Italian language - that is, the Raccolta di voci del Decamerone of Lucilius Minerbi (1535) and the Vocabulario di cinquemila vocabuli Toschi..... del Furioso, Boccaccio, Petrarcha e Dante by Fabricio Luna (1536). Accarisi?'s Vocabulario encompassed their grammatical, lexical and syntactic problems and it responded to the needs of its dissemination, which had been indirectly suggested by Pietro Bembo to his followers. Accarisi believed a given language is of utmost important and in his work he clearly distinguishes between poetic language and vocabulary prose without artificiality. The Vocabulario procured examples presented by Boccaccio, Petrarch and Dante.

      London: [Nicholas Hill] for Wyllyam Bonham,, [1550?]. with dyvers workes whiche were never in print before. Folio (286 × 178 mm). Late 19th-century full grosgrain morocco in antique style by Hayes of Oxford, tooled in blind and decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers, wide turn-ins richly gilt, gilt edges. Housed in a morocco-backed folding case. Printed in black letter in two columns. Title page and separate title for "Romaunt of the Rose" within decorative border, woodcut of the Knight on B1r, woodcut of the Squire on E6v, woodcut initials throughout. Provenance: John Hawes (contemporary ownership inscription inked to title and colophon); Thomas A. Hendricks of Indianapolis (bookplate); Rosenbach Collection (typed label on printed header); Sylvain Brunschwig (morocco bookplate); Paul Peralta-Ramos (small Japanese-style inkstamp); the collection of Cornelia Funke, author of the Inkheart trilogy. Joints tender, lacking final blank, mild browning, dampstaining to first gathering and to margins of last gathering, head of B1 shaved just touching foliation, tear to f. 90 affecting a few letters of text, pen-trials to outer margin of f. 227, discreet ink doodles to woodcut of Knight, "Squier" inked to scroll on woodcut of same, last leaf coming away at head, overall a very good copy. Fourth collected edition, one of four variants each with a different publisher's name in the colophon: the others were Richard Kele, Thomas Petit, and Robert Toye. Pforzheimer notes that, to judge from the relative numbers of extant copies, it is probable that they shared equally in the edition. The woodcuts of the pilgrims that had first been printed in Caxton's 1483 edition are here replaced by two new cuts, of The Knight and The Squire, which were then reprinted in later black letter editions through to 1602. The history of the woodcuts is traced by David R. Carlson, "Woodcut Illustrations of the Canterbury Tales, 1482?-1602," The Library, 6th ser., 19 (1997): 25?-67.

      colophon: Imprinted at London by Thomas Petit ? 1550 - Black Letter, double column, general title within four-piece architectural compartment, two heads in architrave (McKerrow and Ferguson 38) repeated on section title for the Romaunt of the Rose, woodcut portraits of the Knyght (before castle) and richly attired squire, ornate white on black woodcut initials, 15 leaves (Aiii-iv, and 3O-3Q1) supplied from another copy, and the first 2 heavily water-stained, the others moderately so, title-page mounted on a stub and slightly soiled, intermittent water-staining, mainly at end, fraying of the fore-edges of first 6 leaves with the loss of 2 letters on Aiiiv and the headlines on this and the subsequent leaf (these being the supplied ones), Di-iii also a little frayed at extreme fore-edge, a few small holes in first 3 leaves with minor loss, some worming, some marginal, and some, especially from 3F on, in the text with the loss of individual letters, rust outline of an early pair of scissors on G5v and G6r, ff. [viii], 354, lacking final blank, folio, modern calf, lettered in gilt direct on spine, marbled edges from an early 19th-century binding, cloth folding box, early inscriptions inscriptions on title-page , one by Ed. Combe, and and another by a later member of the Combe family, good. On the whole a good copy of the third edition of the collected works of Chaucer, the last publication of William Thynne's original version of the 'Workes' (1st 1532). It was published jointly by four London booksellers: Bonham, Kele, Petit, and Toye, any one of whose names may appear on the colophon, which was adjusted in the course of printing. Included with The Canterbury Tales is 'The Plowman's Tale', a Lollard work, falsely attributed to Chaucer, that attacks Roman Catholicism. For an overview of Thynne's editorial aims, practices, and constraints, see 'Chaucer's presence and absence, 1400-1550' by James Simpson, the penultimate chapter in the Cambridge Companion to Chaucer. A few early marginalia: e.g. on Fol. xxxv, at the line 'Swere and lye, as a woman can', the word 'woman' underlined and 'credo' written in the margin. (STC 5073; Grolier 41; Pforzheimer I 174)

        Opus Lilium medicinae inscriptum, de morborum prope omnium curatione.

      Apud Gulielmum Rouillium, London 1550 - MEDICAL TREATMENTS IN MEDIEVAL TIMES WITH EXTENSIVE ANNOTATIONS 8vo. pp. 910 (i.e. 920), (xvi). a-z8, A-Z8, 2a-2l8, 2m4, *8. Roman and Italic letter, Rouille’s woodcut eagle and serpent device on title, white on black woodcut crible and historiated initials, "Ex biblioth. D. Brix de Wahlberg architat, Furstenberg" at head of title (Bonifacius Brix de Walhberg doctor to the Furstenberg family), Joh. Jac Hertebach (‘and friends’ in Greek) 1622 with price, and, "Ex libris Michaelis Capits Medici ** 1680," beneath, "Georgius ** **" crossed out in earlier hand beneath, extensive marginal annotations throughout in a near contemporary hand, further notes and references on fly leaves and table. Light age yellowing, very light marginal waterstain on a few leaves, the occasional mark or spot, small single worm hole in last section of work. A very good copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary pigskin over bevelled wooden boards, covers triple blind ruled to a panel design, outer panel of upper cover filled with blind roll of biblical figures, central panel with blind acorn tools, lower cover with blind saints roll in outer and central panels, remains of clasps, brass catches, spine with three raised bands ruled in blind. The wooden boards have expanded vertically over time pushing through the upper and lower edges, covers rubbed. A most interesting copy, heavily annotated in an early hand, of this compilation of texts by the Montpellier physician Bernard de Gordon, including his most famous Lilium medicinae and five other shorter treatises. One on prognostication illustrates the importance of astrology and especially the concern of earlier physicians to predict the course of an illness. An encyclopedia of diseases with their symptoms, causes, effects, and treatments, the Lilium gained wide circulation in scores of manuscripts, in translations from Latin into French, Hebrew, Irish, and Spanish and, from 1480 on, in a dozen printed editions. It was cited for three centuries, as an authoritative text on ailments ranging from headache to gout, from epilepsy to leprosy, from insanity to impotence. Bernard de Gordon flourished in the late Middle Ages in the era when university education first evolved in the training of European physicians. Fragmentary details of his life and medical influence are known from seven books, particularly his extensive text Lilium Medicine and from Chaucer's reference to him in the Canterbury Tales. Chaucer lists Bernard de Gordon as one whose writings were part of the core curriculum of the best-trained European doctors of medieval Europe. He was one of that small group of medieval physicians who reverently followed Galenic lore which had endured for a thousand years yet who began to challenge its details and to experiment clinically with new methods of treatment. In his writings, Bernard de Gordon made the first reference to spectacles and to the hernial truss. His writings also contained detailed desiderata for the ethical best practice of medicine of his day, extending the principles of both Hippocrates and Haly ibn Abbas. Unlike many of the surviving writings of other medieval medical teachers, his texts have within them a tone of humility and acknowledged fallibility. A most interesting copy having belonged to a series of physicians until the eighteenth century, one of whom made extensive notes. Gordon’s origins are a matter of contention. Initially held to be Scottish, a French origin has been claimed and Italian inferred. BM STC Fr. C16th. Adams G 871. Durling 542. Baudrier IX 169. Wellcome 1 801. Shaaber G352.

        L'IDEA DEL THEATRO DELLO ECCELLENTE M.GIULIO CAMILLO.

      Appresso di Agostino Bindoni, In Vinegia 1550 - Dedicatoria di Lodovico Domenichi a Don Diego Hurtado di Mendoza. Cm.14,7x9,5. Pg.88, numerate solo al recto. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tagli spruzzati. Marca tipografica, raffigurante la Giustizia con spada e bilancia, al frontespizio. Esemplare in accellenti condizioni di conservazione, fresca impressione. Si tratta di una rara edizione curata da Lodovico Domenichi dello stesso anno della prima, pubblicata postuma in Firenze da Lorenzo Torrentino nell'aprile del 1550. "Giulio Camillo detto "Delminio" (Portogruaro, 1480?1544) è stato un umanista e filosofo italiano. Letterato, erudito e insegnante, è famoso per il suo trattato sulla Imitazione nell'arte e per il vagheggiato progetto utopistico del Teatro della Memoria o Teatro della Sapienza, edificio ligneo costruito secondo il modello vitruviano in cui avrebbe dovuto essere archiviato, tramite un sistema di associazioni mnemoniche per immagini, tutto lo scibile umano, precursore delle moderne enciclopedie. Le fonti sulla sua vita sono due biografie scritte nel XVIII secolo da Federigo Altan e Giorgio Liruti. Nato attorno al 1480 (altre fonti attestano 1484), è possibile che il suo nome di battesimo fosse, in realtà, Bernardino, mentre Giulio Camillo sarebbe uno pseudonimo di sapore latineggiante, adottato secondo il costume degli umanisti dell'epoca. Studiò presso l'Università di Padova e si dedicò quindi all'insegnamento di eloquenza e logica. Nel 1508 fondò con altri, a Pordenone, l'Accademia Liviana; trasferitosi a Venezia, conobbe tra gli altri Pietro Bembo, Pietro Aretino e Tiziano, e strinse amicizia con Erasmo da Rotterdam, che lo ricorda nella sua opera Ciceronianus, attribuendogli eccellenti doti di oratore. Nel 1515 si trova a Udine, quale "maestro d'umanità". Qui tenta di ottenere "l'officio di Cancelliere della Comunità". Dedicatosi allo studio della lingua ebraica e delle lingue orientali, della cabala, del pitagorismo e della filosofia neoplatonica, nel 1519, in occasione di un viaggio a Roma, ebbe probabilmente occasione di confrontarsi con il cardinale Egidio da Viterbo, uno dei massimi cabalisti cristiani. In quegli anni andava sviluppando l'idea di un teatro di nuova concezione, in cui, a differenza che nel teatro tradizionale, in cui lo spettatore si trova in platea e lo spettacolo si svolge sul palco, era lo spettatore a trovarsi al centro del palco e lo spettacolo gli si dispiegava intorno. Dal palco, infatti, si dipartivano 7 gradini, ognuno dei quali contrassegnato con una diversa immagine (Primo grado, Convivio, Antro, Gorgoni, Pasifae, Talari, Prometeo) e ognuno suddiviso in sette parti, corrispondenti ai sette pianeti (Luna, Mercurio, Marte, Giove, Sole, Saturno, Venere). Ognuna delle quarantanove intersezioni che risultavano era contrassegnata da un'altra immagine mnemonica desunta dalla mitologia, che rappresentava una parte dello scibile umano. In pratica, il suo Teatro era un edificio della memoria, rappresentante l'ordine della verità eterna e i diversi stadi della creazione, un'enciclopedia del sapere e l'immagine del cosmo. In questo progetto si avvertono la tensione tipicamente rinascimentale verso il sapere universale e la conoscenza del cosmo, nonché gli influssi della filosofia ermetica e cabalistica iniziata da Pico della Mirandola e studiata nel Novecento da Frances Yates. Delminio espose le sue teorie nel trattato "Idea del Theatro" (pubblicato postumo a Venezia nel 1550) e trovò un sostenitore e mecenate nel sovrano francese Francesco I, che incontrò a Milano, ma non è chiaro se un prototipo di tale teatro sia stato effettivamente costruito. La sua figura non convenzionale e le sue idee particolarissime gli attirarono l'ammirazione di molti ma anche l'ostilità di altri, ed egli venne definito sia un genio sia un ciarlatano. La sua stessa persona era circondata da un alone di mistero, e anche la morte, attorno al 1544, avvenne in circostanze poco chiare" (da "Wikipedia"). 200 gr. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        In cosmographiam. Praefatio [incipit]. [and] Commentatio de re nautica.

      France 1550 - AN UNPUBLISHED AMERICANUM 8vo. 2 works in one volume. Ff. [2, the second blank], 104 (the last 3 blank), [17, blank]; 8, [2], [10, blank], one full-page and several smaller diagrams in the text, manuscript in ink on paper, entirely ruled in red, only towards the end very light traces of humidity, otherwise evenly a little toned and minimally spotted; early 17th-century calf, spine with raised bands and with gilt-stamped floral ornaments, covers with single gilt fillet, central gilt-stamped wraths and gilt-stamped owner’s name Iacobus Auberius (see below); a little worn and scratched. The volume opens with a diagram of the winds as an illustration to chapter 35. The first text is a cosmography in the broadest and still medieval sense, with chapters on astronomy, geometry, including planetary motion, climate zones and their inhabitants, the size of the earth, with a chapter on the armillary sphere, and a Biblical history of the peoples of the earth. The latest discoveries and voyages referred to are those of Magellan (with a chapter on the Terra Australis incognita) and Columbus’ discovery of the Americas. Chapter 45, entitled De America in Communi mentions the islands of Jamaica, Cuba and Hispaniola (now Haiti and the Dominican Republic). The rest of the Americas is only referred to in a cursory way, which suggests that the text must have been written in the second half of the 1520s, just after news of Magellan’s epic voyage spread. The Commentatio de re nautica is mainly on the meteorological determinants of navigation, in particular winds, as well as the salt content of the seas and the tides, and the question of why there are no substantial tidal changes in the Baltic. This ten-page text is concluded by a short section on the zodiac, the celestial coordinate system essential for determining the altitude, and a reference to Sacrobosco’s De sphaera. Provenance: The binding was made for Jacques d’Auber de Peyrelongue (17th century) member of a noble family residing in the South-West of France. Many of the family members served the Kings of France as écuyers (squires, shield-bearers), as well as a later owner of the volume, the Marquis d’Auber de Peyrelongue, who served Louis XVIII and elegantly inscribed the front fly-leaf and the outer margin of the first page. - This volume might have served as a teaching manual or textbook for a young member of the Auber family, a sort of primer of astronomy and geography with a strong focus on winds and navigation.

        Thomae Linacri Britanni de Emendata Structura Latini Sermonis Libri Sex. Emendiatores. Index copiosissimus in eosdem. [with] Rudimenta gramatices Thomae Linacri, ex Anglico sermone in Latinum versa, interprete Georgio Buchano Scoto

      Lutetieae [Paris]: Ex officina Roberti Stephani [Estienne], 1550 An extremely scarce sixteenth century printing of two grammatical works by Thomas Linacre (1460-1524), who was a noted and influential scholar, admired for his translations and writing in Latin. Emendata, first published in the 1520's went through numerous printings - this is circa the 13th printing. This version of Rudimenta was first published after his death in 1533. The printer - 'Roberti Stephani' was also known as Robert Estienne, and was a noted scholar as well as a printer. Bound in contemporary full leather binding with raised bands, title label and elaborate gilt tooling to spine; panelled gilt tooled design to boards. The binding has wear and some loss to joints and some loss to the top and bottom of the spine. Boards have lost a little leather at the corners. Overall this would be an easy leather repair. Page edges marbled. The front pastedown has a bookplate of Charles C Handford and there is a signature of H White to the fep. The fep and initial blank have a little worm damage and loss to outer edge. There is a note about Linacre written on the verso of the initial blank. Contents: title page with small signature to top and signature of Tho Crashawe to either side of the printer's device; text 404pp; index 37pp with errata note at end; blank 4pp; note; title page Rudimenta 1550 with printer's device; text 116pp; note; blank; ep. The first title page and initial text leaves have fragile outer edges - the title page with a little loss. There is light toning to pages and occasional light staining or marking but overall this copy is very clean and in good order.

In the manner of a modern travel guide, it provides, as and when its route, a detailed list of sites they visit and legends related to it. Numerous archaeological excavations have repeatedly confirmed the truth of his information, especially with regard to the historical sites and works of art they contain.

Sa description de la Grèce de constitue un témoignage de première importance sur la Grèce à l'époque romaine, en particulier pour le IIe siècle de l'ère chrétienne, même si Pausanias se complaît souvent à mêler histoire et mythologie. À la manière d'un guide de voyage moderne, il donne, au fur et à mesure de son itinéraire, la liste détaillée des sites qu'il visite et les légendes qui s'y rapportent.

Pour décrire les monuments et les sites qu'il visite, Pausanias (115-180) fouille les bibliothèques et voyage énormément.

        Vita e dottrina di Gio.Taulero. Vie et sermons. Manuscrit.

      Deuxieme moitie du XVIe s. (d'apres l'etude des filigranes du papier), s.d., (vers 1550),. in-4to, 7 ff. + 369 p. + 7 ff., numerotation des pages post., ecriture humanistique bien lisible, timbre 'Bibliotheque Saint-Bernard, Martigny' sur les pages 1 et 118, reliure en parchemin (acte de vente en latin, nord de l'Italie).. Jean Tauler (vers 1300 - 1361) ne et mort a Strasbourg, fut un theologien mystique et predicateur alsacien surnomme " Le Docteur illumine ". Il fit partie de l'ordre des Dominicains, comme Maitre Eckhart, dont il fut l'eleve. On ne connait de l'oeuvre de Tauler, avec certitude, que 84 Sermons ecrits en allemand, qui sont en fait des notes d'auditeurs. Publiees partiellement des 1498, les versions manuscrites dispersees dans les bibliotheques europeennes temoignent de la qualite de la transmission et de sa portee.La premiere edition de Leipzig (1498) contenait 84 sermons; la deuxieme (Bale, 1521-22) en rajouta 42, dont certains, egalement selon le meme editeur, n'etaient pas de Tauler; dans la troisieme (Cologne, 1543) on en rajouta encore 25, dont a nouveau quelques illegitimes. Cette derniere edition fut traduite, ou mieux fut paraphrasee, en latin par Laurentius Surius (Cologne, 1548) et fut ensuite employee pour des traductions en plusieurs langues (dont des retraductions en allemand). Luther appreciait Tauler et les Protestants ont toujours eu une tres bonne opinion de ses ecrits et l'ont meme inclus entre les "reformateurs avant la Reforme". Notre manuscrit est une traduction en langue italienne (inedite?) de l'edition de 1548, dediee a l'archeveque de Cologne Adolf III von Schaumburg en charge de 1547 a 1556, lequel fut Grand Chancelier du SER en Italie, par Girard de Hamont, prieur de la chartreuse de Cologne. La preface de l'ouvrage, ecrite par Girard de Hamont, explique d'une facon tres claire le motif qui conduisit a publier une nouvelle traduction en latin des sermons de Tauler. Les textes allemands avaient ete utilises par les Protestants en defense de leurs theses. Ainsi, dans cette periode caracterisee par la Contre-Reforme, s'imposait une nouvelle lecture des sermons de Tauler qui visait a en souligner le caractere catholique. C'est egalement le motif du grand succes de ces textes, temoigne entre autres par la traduction italienne en notre possession.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.
