Bible. N.T. Greek. 1550.
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: … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACHIAVELLI, NICCOLO. ( Nicolo Machiavelli ).:
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.

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 w … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

TAULER. - HAMONT, Gierardo:
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Queen Mary ordered copies of the book to be burned and only fragments survive. Richard Grafton completed the history, which was unfinished after the year 1532, based on the authors notes and began reprinting Halles Chronicle in 1547 (the year Halle died).

Caesar Augustae (Zaragoza), (à la fin:) Bartholomei a Nagera, 1550. - Petit in-8. 222ff. non chiffrés. Plein maroquin brun doublé, dos à nerfs orné, double filet doré sur les plats, doublure de maroquin havane guilloché à froid et encadré de filets et d'une guirlande dorée (reliure espagnole postérieure, vers 1950?). Précieuse édition de ce recueil des chants liturgiques qui étaient vocalisés pendant les processions des cisterciens espagnols. Elle fut imprimée à Saragosse avec la musique notée et peut être considérée comme la première édition complète du processionnal cistercien, car elle ne fut précédée que par un petit livret de 64 pages imprimé dans la même ville en 1516. Les processionnals sont des livres liturgiques contenant les paroles et la musique des chants qui accompagnaient les processions religieuses: essentiellement des répons, des antiennes et des hymnes. Il s'agit habituellement d'ouvrages manuscrits mais c'est principalement en Espagne, pays fortement attaché à la tradition des processions, que se développa au 16e siècle une activité éditoriale autour des processionnals. Le présent volume est rarissime. Nous n'avons pu en localiser que deux exemplaires complets (British Library et Washington University Pullman Library). En Espagne, les collections patrimoniales n'en répertorient que 4 exemplaires seulement, tous incomplets. Ordiozola, notamment, n'en connaissait aucun exemplaire complet. Belle impression gothique aux encres rouge et noire, avec la musique notée à chaque page. La gravure au verso du titre est légèrement épidermée avec d'infimes manques.
