Suivi de : DEFENSES DE LOUIS MEIGRET TOUCHANT SON ORTHOGRAPHIE FRANÇOEZE, contre les censures e calônies de Glaumalis du Vezelet, e de ses adherans.

EDITION ORIGINALE EXTREMEMENT RARE DE LA PREMIERE GRAMMAIRE DE LA LANGUE FRANÇAISE, « rédigée en français » par Louis Meigret ; cette œuvre « étant de ces grands textes qui ne laissent pas indifférent » (Cendrine Pagani-Naudet). Louis Meigret (vers 1510-1558) était un grammairien lyonnais et un réformateur de la langue française. Charles-Louis Livet, dans son livre La Grammaire française et les grammairiens du XVIè siècle, 1859, disait de lui qu'il était « le père de la grammaire française » et non Dubois ou Henri Estienne. Il était le premier à penser qu'il fallait offrir à l'usage populaire des traités composés en français et mettre ainsi « la science au service du vulgaire ». L'ouvrage est divisé en 11 parties : l'abondance en voix de la langue françoise (voyelles, consonnes, syllabes, diction, langage, articles) - les noms - les pronoms - les verbes - la préposition - les adverbes - les conjonctions l'intersection - les accents ou tons des syllabes et les dictions - les poins d'amiracion, d'interrogation et l'apostrophe - les poins de soupir, de semi-poze le point final et la parenthèse.

Sebastian MUENSTER
Basilea 1550 - Esemplare pubblicato nella "‘Cosmographia oder beschreibung Aller Lander.", edita a Basilea nel 1588. Per la realizzazione di questa mappa, Munster si basò su quelle di Mercator e Ziegler, arricchendola con numerose vignette. L’orientazione insolita della mappa vede l’Ovest in alto con la linea costiera che corre da sud-ovest a nord-est. la zona litoranea, è notevolmente accurata per il periodo, e va da Sidone e la terra dei Fenici nel nord, a Gaza nel sud. Gli ultimi nove accampamenti degli israeliti erranti durante l'esodo sono mostrati insieme con le divisioni tribali. Il cartiglio contiene un indice delle località che appaiono sulla mappa, con ogni voce in grassetto seguito dal corsivo per i nomi alternativi con cui il sito era conosciuto. Xilografia, finemente colorata a mano, in ottime condizioni. Published in ‘Cosmographia oder beschreibung Aller Lander.’, Basle 1588. Munster based this map of the Holy Land on maps by Mercator and Ziegler and filled it with numerous woodcut vignettes. The unusual orientation of the map places west at the top with the coastline running southwest to northeast. The shoreline is remarkably accurate for the period, covering from Sidon and the land of the Phoenicians in the north, to Gaza in the south. The last nine encampments of the wandering Israelites during the Exodus are shown along with the tribal divisions. The cartouche contains an index of place names that appear on the map with each boldfaced entry followed in italics by the alternative names by which the site was known.

MACHIAVELLI, NICCOLO. ( Nicolo Machiavelli ).:
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.

Mathematics, ballistics, artillery - Tartaglia, Niccolo:
Venezia, Niccolo Bascarini for the author, 1550. 4°, circa 21,5 x 15,3 cm., 4, 32 num. ff., title with a full-page woodcut, numerous illustrations in the text. Newer half-calf with marbled boards Edit16 31855; Riccardi 496; Adams T 190. Second edition of the first printed treatise on ballistics by the leading mathematician and military engineer Tartaglia (1499-1557) who laid the ground for discoveries that Galileo made a few decades later. It contains the important statement, based on Tartaglia's own experiments, that the path of a projectile is curved, but that the curve at the beginning and end differs very little from a straight line. It was not until Galileo that the curve was shown to be a parabola. The nice large woodcut on the title shows Euclid who lets mathematicians into a walled circle where the liberal arts are represented. A second smaller walled circle with Aristoteles and Plato at the entrance is presided by philosophy. - Minor browning, few leaves with light stains, but mostly clean, pages bound anew and a little irregular, but still nice.

[BODENSTEIN (Adam von)] GORDON (Bernard de)
Lyon, Guillaume Rouillé, 1550. 8vo, 910 (ie 920) and (16) pages ; XVIIe calf (spine restored). Exceptionnal copy of this influencal medieval medical works from the library of one of the earliest paracelist, Adam von Bodenstein, early editor and translator of Paracelcius's corpus. The copy bears his autograph signature on title page, different mottos in latine and greek ("Discendo ac ducente deo", "Nihil sine numine faustum prosperumque" and "anerou kai aperou"), and the date of 1557. "Following a stay in Vienna in 1551 Bodenstein was, at least until 1559, in the service of Count Palatinate Ottheinrich, a sovereign favorably disposed toward alchemical Paracelsianism. He appointed Bodenstein in 1553 to the position of "servant by order of the house" and "admonished" him several times around 1556 to read Paracelsus. In part because of certain successful therapies with Paracelsian medicine in Basel in 1556, Bodenstein became, about this time, receptive to the medicina nova of Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim (Paracelsus). Whether he was already disseminating "Paracelsian thinking and writings" in the "1550s" (Nutton, 1995, p. 112) remains uncertain; there are no testimonies or proofs of documents. However, undoubtedly Bodenstein's "Paracelsian turn" combined with an orientation toward transmutational alchemy. Encouraged by an itinerant alchemist (possibly Denis Zecaire) and two friends from Basel, the councillor of the margrave Ludwig Wolfgang of Habsburg and the university mathematician Johannes Acronius. Bodenstein made himself out to be an expert on the philosopher's … [Click Below for Full Description]

Florence: Lorenzo Torrentino, 1550. Quarto (215 x 140 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, manuscript title inked to spine. Contemporary Italian ownership inscription, inked annotation and underlining to pp. 301 & 311. Vellum lightly marked, shallow chip to fore edge of front cover, quires t, M and Ff lightly foxed, pale tide-mark to lower outer corner of a few gatherings and very occasionally to head of gutter. An excellent copy. Wood-engraved vignette title page incorporating the Medici arms, 12 allegorical initial figures, frequent line diagrams to the text. First Segni edition, the first "full vernacular interpretation of Aristotle, including both translation and chapter-by-chapter commentary" (Lines, "Rethinking Renaissance Aristotelianism", in Renaissance Quarterly, 66.3, Fall 2013, p. 838). "Practically unstudied, Segni's work represents an important moment in the evolution of vernacular Aristotelianism (and philosophy more generally) in the Renaissance" (idem, p. 824). Segni (1504-1558) was a Florentine humanist best known for his Istorie fiorentine and the Vita de Niccolo Capponi. He entered the service of Cosimo II de Medici, the Duke of Florence, in 1535, and was sent on a number of diplomatic postings in Europe. In his introduction Segni exalts the Tuscan language and underlines the need for vernacular editions of Greek and Latin texts; he quotes frequently from Dante throughout his commentary. He also draws extensively on the earlier commentary tradition, including the works of Byzantine scholar Eustratius (c.1050-1121), English scholastic philosopher Walter Burley ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

Iciar (Juan de), c. 1522-after 1572
Saragossa, Pedro Bernúz, 1550 (23 July). The Arte subtilissima is the revised second edition of the first calligraphy and handwriting manual published in Spain. The woodblocks of the first edition (1548) are re-employed, except for three; twenty-four "Tablas mas estudiadas y mas esmeradas que antes" are added, and these enlarge the book by two gatherings (sixteen leaves). One of the new blocks is dated 1547, seven are dated 1550, and sixteen are undated. J.P.R. Lyell's complaint that Iciar's writing books were "thumbed out of existence" is validated by modern bibliographical tools: ten copies of the 1548 first edition, some just fragments, are recorded in public collections worldwide. Our 1550 second edition is less rare, but equally difficult to find complete and in good condition: twelve copies are recorded public collections, of which at least four are incomplete. Fig. 1.

Colon, Hernando.
1550. Spanish ms. on vellum. 247 x 285 mm (written space 160 x 210 mm). 2 cols. 16 lines. With a large initial "L" in red, green, and blue on gold. Large illuminiation with rich gold and coloured tendril designs on reverse. The "Historia del Almirante", the story of the life of Christopher Columbus, is said to have been written around 1530 by his son Hernando Colón (1487-1539). The original manuscript is lost. The work was first printed in 1571 in Italian. The 1749 Spanish edition is merely a re-translation (cf. Sabin 14674) and thus contains many departures from the present ms. copy, which is obviously based on the original version. Judging by the style of the tendril initial (strongly rubbed), this ms. probably was created in the mid-16th century. The text begins, "Los rebeldes perseverando en su mal animo el Almirante resolvio enviar contre essos al Prefecto su hermano que con buenas palabras sgredviese a juicio y arrepentimento pero con compania hastante para que si quisiesen onfendere oudiese resistirlos" (the later printed version has: "Perseverando los rebeldes en su mal ánimo y propósito, llegaron hasta un cuarto de legua de los navíos, a un pueblo de indios llamado Maima, donde después edificaron los cristianos una cuidad llamada Sevilla.") - It could not be established whether the illumination on the reverse belongs to the original composition or is a later addition in contemporary style. The image does not fit the text well: it depicts three legendary scenes of the conquest of Brittany by a commander of Charlemagne in 799 (Brittany, personified by a female allego … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hartung (1505-79), der sein Studium der Theologie, Philosophie und Jurisprudenz in Heidelberg aus finanziellen Gründen wiederholt unterbrechen und sich als Lehrer, Begleiter des Grafen von Falkenstein und Soldat in Ungarn verdingen mußte, erhielt 1537 eine Gräzistikprofessur in Heidelberg. 1546 folgte er "einem Ruf als Professor der griechischen und hebräischen Sprache an die Universität Freiburg/Br., wo er zeitweise auch Poesie lehrte" (DBE). - Hartungs Widmung richtet sich an den Freiburger Juristen Johann Venator: Hartung habe "beim Übersetzen oft an den Nägeln kauen, sich den Kopf kratzen müssen, bis er verderbte Stellen wiederhergestellt, Dunkles verstanden habe.
