1550. Acquaforte su ferro, monogrammata in lastra in alto al centro. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre con il numero 12 aggiunto in alto a sinistra. Magnifica prova, particolarmente nitida e contrastata, impressa su carta vergata priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione.

CHAUCER, Geoffrey
Robert Toye, 1550. Folio. ff (viii) 354 lacking final blank. 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, 'A' monogrammed 'I.R' General title slightly browned, upper and outer edge frayed just touching a couple of letters and corner repaired with a little text loss, marginal tear to last leaf of prologue. Margins cut a little close, very occasionally shaving running title else well clear of text, the odd ink or oil spot or small splash. A good clean copy, very clearly printed on thick paper. 'liber John Caliston [?]' in Tudor hand on t-p and verso of last. C19 armorial bookplate of the Earl of Rosebery on pastedown. In C19 polished mottled calf, spine gilt. Third edition of the collected works of the inimitable Chaucer, a rare and handsome book. It was published, Paris fashion, 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. This edition is mostly a reprint of the 1542 with some rearrangement of the material and consequent minor textual amendment (the woodcuts differ from both earlier editions); it is the last publication of William Thynne's original version of the 'Workes' (1st 1532); the next (1561) was revised by John Stow. It is the earliest edition now available, at least complete. Thynne was the … [Click Below for Full Description]

IBN SINA (AVICENNA), Raymond LULL (LULLIUS) and ARISTOTLE.
Duveen, p. 11 ("excessively rare"); Ferguson, Bib. chem. I, p. 18; MacPhail I, 20; for Ibn Sina: DSB XV, pp. 494-500. 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.

Straparola, Giovanni Francesco (Gianfrancesco).
1550. This clearly has been extracted from a 16th-century edition of Straparola's Le tredici piaceuolissime notti di m. Gio. Francesco Straparola da Carauaggio, but which is yet undetermined. Straparola (d. ca. 1557) was a poet and "story teller" and native of Caravaggio who was born in the last twenty years of the 15th century. The present tale of a father condemned to death but shown the path to righteousness by his son is printed in italic on pp. [2-6] and roman on pp. [7-8]; p. [8] bears => a graphic large woodcut of one man stabbing another ensnared in his own cloak. The title-page bears an even larger woodcut, being a border surrounding a bust of Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus! All of the hints are here -- sensational subject matter, vernacular language, poor typography, and poor printing mixed with inattention to composition and a sensational woodcut -- that this was => a cheap production for a popular reading audience. Provenance: Undeciphered early signature on title-page; later in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Planudes, Maximus, comp.
Apud Aldi filios. Third Aldine edition of the Greek anthology originally compiled by Maximus Planudes (ca. 1260 - ca. 1305) and edited by Andreas Joannes Lascaris (1445-1534). Hutton believes that this edition and that published by Nicolini in 1550 are virtually identical. He also notes that the ten leaves immediately after fol. 288 (and before the blank leaf preceding the final leaf with the printer's device) are printed in => Paolo Aldus's new Greek type, which is larger than the type of the main text. "The Greek anthology," as it is commonly known among Hellenists, contains poems, mostly in form of epigrams, spanning the Classical and Byzantine eras of Greek literature. It had its origins in the collection of epigrams that Constantine Cephalas compiled around 900, which in turn used compilations made by Meleager of Gadara (first century B.C.), Philip of Thessalonica (ca. A.D. 50), and Agathias of Myrina (A.D. 567/568). Those three sources are now lost. Next in the chain is the Palatine Anthology, the work of an unknown scholar, which expanded the number of epigrams to about 3700. Offered here is the "Plaundian" anthology that Byzantine monk Maximus Planudes produced ca. 1301: It is a reduced version of the Palatine Anthology, but does add some epigrams not included by the Palatine version. The Planudean Anthology was => the Greek anthology of the Renaissance and it exerted a huge influence. While the title-page gives the publication date as 1550, the colophon is dated 1551.

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 Gir … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bound in early vellum over boards, lightly soiled, title stenciled in ink on spine along with decorative flower. Old shelf-mark above printer's device on final leaf. Tiny wormhole in blank margin of title, with some minor staining; elsewhere some occasional finger-soiling; extreme right margin (blank) of final leaves gnawed, no loss of printed surface. Rare first Italian edition and first edition in any vulgate language of "the first handbook of modern systematic mineralogy" (Grolier & Horblit on Latin 1546). According to Dibner, the work showed a decisive turn away from scholastic and folkloric views about the origin and properties of minerals: "Agricola parted from the general view of Aristotle that stones, metals and gems had their origin in the influence of the heavenly bodies. He rejected with equal emphasis the theory of Albertus. Instead, he looked to natural causes, to the solution of minerals in liquids and their precipitation by gravity, heat, cold and evaporation. the break from speculation to observation was clean and definite" (Dibner).Hoover considered the present work offered here (in the original Latin edition, 1546) Agricola's most important work after De re metallica, and describes its component sections (by their Latin titles) as follows: "de Natura Fossilium... was the first systematic mineralogy. The De Ortu et Causis Subterraneorum is co … [Click Below for Full Description]

DÜRER (Albrecht) / RAIMONDI (Marcantino)
1550. Suite de 16 planches sur 17 gravées au burin en beau tirage ancien. La Vie de la Vierge a été gravée par Raimondi d’après les bois d’Albrecht Dürer (Bartsch, 621 à 637). Cette remarquable suite de 16 planches (sur 17, il manque la planche 8 représentant la Visitation) gravées au burin (environ 210 x 290 mm) en très beau tirage ancien a été montée dans un recueil in-4 en plein vélin à l’imitation des vélins estampés du XVIe siècle. Elles sont monogrammées et numérotées, légères rousseurs sur certaines d'entre elles, elles sont rognées au trait carré et montées sur un feuillet réglé à l'encre brune, chacun monté sur onglets. Marcantino Raimondi est le premier contrefacteur d'Albrecht Durer, car c'est de son vivant qu'il s'arrogeât le droit de copier les gravures sur cuivre du maitre et de les signer de son monogramme "AD". Il est né près de Bologne, et suit une formation d'orfèvre, graveur. Il est élève de Francesco Raibolini, et signe ses premières productions en 1505. D'après Vasari, Albrecht Dürer furieux de ces copies porta plainte contre Marcantontonio, cependant cette version, n'est crédité par aucun autre historien. Vers 1510, Vasari fréquente l'entourage de Raphaël et crée en compagnie de celui ci une imprimerie à Rome. L'établissement se transformera par la suite en une école de gravure dirigée pas Raimondi. Marcantionio Raimondi et ses élèves continuèrent de graver l'oeuvre de Raphael, jusqu'aux années 1520. On retrouve sa trace en 1524 en prison pour avoir imprimer et diffuser des gravure érotiques d'après Giulio Romano. Chassé de Rome en 1527 il meurt dans l … [Click Below for Full Description]

(BIBLES). A GROUP OF NINE DEVOTIONAL WORKS, INCLUDING
1550-1748. n. This group of nine items includes an important illustrated Bible in Latin, a German Bible, and four in English, representing two different Protestant translations (brief descriptions of these and the other three books follow). (1) The oldest Bible for which we know a certain date is Christopher Barker's 1584 printing of the Geneva Bible, the so-called "Breeches Bible" because the translators chose the (imprecise) word "breeches" to describe the coverings Adam and Eve fashioned for themselves out of fig leaves. (2) First printed in 1547, the Louvain Bible (in Latin) was the standard Catholic Bible for the second half of the 16th century. We cannot positively identify our edition, as its title and colophon are lacking, but it is one of several octavo printings from the period (the 1547 edition was in folio); whatever printing it is, it has very attractive woodcuts. (3) Our King James Bible printed in London in 1649 has an attractively gilt binding, with repeating vase and floral tools framing the covers and floral tooling on the spine. Its endleaves contain handwritten birth, marriage, and death records for John and Martha Peer and their children, dated from 1798 to 1885. (4) Our 1679 English Bible with Book of Common Prayer and Psalms has an intriguing set of statistics: early owner William Francis counted and recorded the number of books, chapters, words, syllables(!), and letters (3,139,429) in the Bible, and he also noted that a verse in Ezra contains all the letters of the alphabet.

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.

FRANCESCO MARCOLINI
MARCOLINI FRANCESCO, 1550. Seconda edizione delle Sorti del Marcolini: apparsa dopo dieci anni l'opera venne ripensata nella sua impaginazione, fornendo un sistema di consultazione e gioco semplificato, poiche' i responsi vengono inseriti subito dopo ogni singola sezione dei quesiti. Le silografie vengono fedelmente riutilizzate dall'edizione precedente ad eccezione del ritratto del Marcolini, che appare curiosamente invecchiato, e di sette nuovi legni della sezione dei filosofi che nell'edizione del 1540 erano invece ripetuti. Precede l'opera dedica a Ercole d'Este, duca di Ferrara (p. III) e proemio esplicativo ai lettori (pp. IV-V). Titolo, ad opera di Francesco Salviati, inciso da Marco Dente, raffigurante un gruppo di uomini e donne intenti a discorrere e a consultare il libro del Marcolini nel "Giardino di pensieri"; Al verso del titolo ritratto dell'autore a piena pagina racchiuso entro cornice architettonica sorretta da due cariatidi. Alle pp. VI-VII elenco dei 50 quesiti che si possono rivolgere al libro (suddivisi tra uomini, donne e per uomini e donne) e rimando alle 50 tavole relative. La prima sezione del libro contiene 50 silografie poste nella parte superiore del recto di ogni foglio raffiguranti immagini simboliche, vizi e virtu', accompagnate da 90 carte da gioco che circondano l'incisione e da altre 45 carte disposte nel verso della carta a fronte disposte a forma di croce.

BIBLES). A GROUP OF NINE DEVOTIONAL WORKS, INCLUDING
, 1550-1748. 1550-1748. n. This group of nine items includes an important illustrated Bible in Latin, a German Bible, and four in English, representing two different Protestant translations (brief descriptions of these and the other three books follow). (1) The oldest Bible for which we know a certain date is Christopher Barker's 1584 printing of the Geneva Bible, the so-called "Breeches Bible" because the translators chose the (imprecise) word "breeches" to describe the coverings Adam and Eve fashioned for themselves out of fig leaves. (2) First printed in 1547, the Louvain Bible (in Latin) was the standard Catholic Bible for the second half of the 16th century. We cannot positively identify our edition, as its title and colophon are lacking, but it is one of several octavo printings from the period (the 1547 edition was in folio); whatever printing it is, it has very attractive woodcuts. (3) Our King James Bible printed in London in 1649 has an attractively gilt binding, with repeating vase and floral tools framing the covers and floral tooling on the spine. Its endleaves contain handwritten birth, marriage, and death records for John and Martha Peer and their children, dated from 1798 to 1885. (4) Our 1679 English Bible with Book of Common Prayer and Psalms has an intriguing set of statistics: early owner William Francis counted and recorded the number of books, chapters, words, syllables(!), and letters (3,139,429) in the Bible, and he also noted that a verse in Ezra contains all the letters of the alphabet.

Venezia, Giovanni Padovano, 1550. In - 4°; 8 cc. nn., 148 cc. con frontespizio e 84 figure, di cui 56 a piena pagina, incisi in legno; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso, lacci originali in pelle parzialmente conservati. Antica firma di possesso al titolo ed ex libris a stampa al contropiatto anteriore (del maestro di scherma Garibaldi Geraci). Antichi segni di inchiostro al titolo; sporadiche, non gravi macchioline e tracce d'uso. Buon esemplare. Terza edizione del più importante trattato italiano di scherma del Cinquecento, e primo vero trattato sistematico e completo di scherma moderna, la cui fortuna è testimoniata dalle molte edizioni che si susseguirono nel corso del secolo. L'edizione veneziana del 1517, citata da alcune bibliografie come prima, è in realtà ormai riconosciuta come una ristampa del Sessa della fine del '500. Le 84 xilografie, in questa edizione "più fresche" che nella prima (Modena 1536), per il resto identica (cfr. Gelli), rappresentano schermidori nelle diverse figure e posizioni e sono state attribuite a Francesco Barattini o a Giovanni Britto (il monogramma "b" è ben visibile su alcune di esse). Achille Marozzo (1484 - 1553) è considerato uno dei più importanti maestri della "Scuola bolognese" ed è riconosciuto come il "padre della scherma europea" (Sticca). Fu allievo di Guido Antonio de Luca che fu maestro, tra gli altri, anche di uomini d'arme quali Giovanni dalle Bande Nere e Guido Rangoni, dedicatario dell'opera. Thimm, p. 181. Vigeant, pp. 89 - 90.
