Rhau, Georg).
Wittenberg, (Georg Rhau's heirs), 1550. 4to. (248) pp. Title printed in red and black. With woodcut title vignette and 52 woodcuts in the text, (13 of which are full-page). - (Bound with) II: Dietrich, Veit. Agend Büchlein für die Pfarrherren auff dem Land. (Nuremberg, Johann vom Berg and Ulrich Neuber), 1553. (246) pp. With woodcut title border. Contemporary roll-tooled pigskin over wooden boards with bevelled edges and two brass clasps. This devotional book is especially significant due to the outstanding woodcut illustrations by the eminent German artists Lucas Cranach the Elder, Hans Brosamer, Anton Woensam, and others, including the famous portrait of the Wittenberg printer Georg Rhau at the age of 60. This edition of the "Hortulus" was first printed by Rhau in 1547, and later in a smaller edition in 8vo. This is the larger (4to) edition. It contains a catechism, an explanation of the Lord's Prayer, by Melanchthon, the "Lobgesang" "Ein Kindelein so loebelich / ist uns geboren heute / von einer Jungfraw seuberlich / zu trost uns armen Leuten", with commentary; other pieces for Christmas, and on the Passion. The "Symbolum Apostolorum", the Creed, with the Commentary by Martin Luther, has a separate title-page. One of the most important religious works of the 16th century. - Bound with this is a rare early edition of the famous manual of protestant liturgy by Veit Dietrich (1506-49), a close companion of Luther's, commissioned by the Council of Nuremberg. The work saw more than 15 editions in the 16th century alone, and liturgical practice in Bavaria's Protestant church w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hans Ladenspelder (Essen 1521 - 1561)
Bulino, privo di firma, circa 1550. Della serie conosciuta come I Tarocchi del Mantegna. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con parziale filigrana "cerchio con stella", con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La serie conosciuta come I Tarocchi del Mantegna. Probabilmente inciso prima del 1467, questo mazzo di 50 carte fu erroneamente attribuito ad Andrea Mantegna, ma per lo stile è collegato all'ambito ferrarese. Il mazzo, di cui si conoscono due serie soprannominate E ed S, è suddiviso in cinque gruppi di dieci carte. L'ordine numerico corrisponde a una precisa gerarchia d'importanza. Ogni gruppo inizia con Le condizioni umane, prosegue poi con Apollo e le Muse, le Arti e le scienze, con particolare riferimento alle Arti Liberali , ossia a quel complesso di conoscenze teoriche considerato indispensabile all'uomo libero. Nel Medioevo cristiano erano considerate superiori alle Arti meccaniche tra cui figuravano quelle visive. Successivamente si passa agli Spiriti e alle Virtù, poi ai Pianeti e le Stelle dell'Universo, aderenti alla classica visione di Tolomeo e infine all'Ottava Sfera, al Primo Mobile e alla Prima Causa, cioè Dio. Non sappiamo come veniva usato questo mazzo: più che carte da gioco, i tarocchi del Mantegna sembrerebbero un'opera didattica e istruttiva, cosa tutt'altro che rara in epoche in cui la diffusione delle idee non aveva la velocità odierna. Il contenuto stimolava quindi il giocatore ad un'ascesa verso la perfezione, simile al viaggio di Dante dall'Inferno al Paradiso. La serie dei Tarocchi fu ripresa da molti a … [Click Below for Full Description]

Legatura settecentesca in marocchino rosso con tre cornici a filetto impresse in oro ai piatti, dorso a 5 nervi con fregi e titolo in oro su tassello in marocchino verde, contropiatti e sguardie in carta caillouté, tagli dorati (lieve usura delle cerniere, lieve fessurazione al dorso, qualche macchia ai piatti). Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris del grande librario e bibliografo Tammaro De Marinis, etichetta cartacea azzurra di Stassins et Xavier Libraires e, più in basso, altra etichetta con segnatura manoscritta. Ottima copia. Edizione originale di questo commedia in cinque atti in prosa (più prologo), basata sull'Andria terenziana, che fu rappresentata per la prima volta nel 1545. Essa appartiene alle cosidette commedie "osservate" del Cecchi, ossia a quelle di più marcata ispirazione classica, in cui vengono rigorosamente rispettate le unità aristoteliche. Tra le commedie "osservate" figurano anche La Dote, Gli Incantesimi, I Dissimili, L'Assiuolo e La Stiava, tutte pubblicate dal Giolito nello stesso anno e vendute sia separatamente che in blocco a formare "un elegante e ricercatissimo volume" (Bongi). Il Cecchi, fiorentino, assisté e rimase profondamente segnato da due fatti che lo colpirono in ancor giovane età: l'assedio di Firenze del 1530 e l'uccisione del padre con il conseguente difficoltoso tentativo di ottener giustizia sul colpevole.

A rare survival of a very early printed English book. A-N8 (-N8), 103 leaves foliated [7], 73, 68-90, without the final blank N8 only A well preserved copy of a rare book, title-leaf strengthened with tissue, corner of E4 with a tear affecting a shoulder note, corner of F4 clipped with loss of a catchword, one or two shoulder notes just shaved without any significant loss, light evidence of long ago encountered damp, a very good copy and a fine survival. A VERY RARE EARLY PRINTING OF THE POPULAR TREATISE ON MEDICINE. The author is especially memorable for his championship and use of English prose for subjects then customarily treated in Latin. Both as a philosopher and as a lexicographer, he endeavoured to "augment our Englysshe tongue" as a medium for ideas. His Castel of Helth was a popular regimen of health that, written in the vernacular and by a layman (although he had received some instruction in medicine), incurred censure but was widely read. Elyot intended to place a scientific knowledge of the art of medicine within the reach of those unacquainted with Greek. This work, though scoffed at by the faculty, was appreciated by the general public

Minime mancanze di perg. al margine esterno del piatto posteriore e alla parte bassa del dorso, qualche alone sparso, perlopiù marginale. Esemplare peraltro nel complesso genuino e ben conservato. Ben conservato. Guillaume Budé (1467-1540), celebre umanista parigino, va annoverato anche fra i principali esponenti dell'umanesimo giuridico.

(28, 1 bianco), 467, (1) ff. Piccola riparazione al margine esterno bianco del frontespizio e lievi fioriture sparse; diverse antiche e nitide annotazioni marginali a penna. Prima edizione italiana di questa notevole opera sulle miniere, i metalli, la mineralogia e la geologia. First Italian edition of the first handbook of modern systematic mineralogy (first edition: Basel 1546 in Latin). It is difficult to appreciate Agricola's attainments in the sciences of Geology, Mineralogy, and Mining Engineering unless one has some understanding of the dearth of knowledge in these sciences prior to his time. «Furthermore, no appreciation of Agricola's contribution to science can be gained without a study of (this work), for while De Re Metallica (published 10 years later) is of much more general interest, it contains but incidental reference to Geology and Mineralogy» (Hoover, "De Re Metallica", Introduction, p. XII). Printer's device on title and at end, many woodcut initials and a text woodcut. Old vellum rebacked; small repair to outer blank margin of title and some light foxing here and there; some old and neat marginal ink annotations.

Title within woodcut border with elaborate woodcut illustrations of various machines and apparatus, numerous text woodcuts as well as elaborate woodcut initials. Eighteenth century vellum backed marbled boards, edges and corners worn; first 8 leaves repaired at upper right corner, some browning, contemporary annotations throughout. Contemporary ownership signature of Giovanni Giulio Bruschi on title (he signs Brusco on the final leaf above the colophon), another signature, Alfonso Ruso (?) with an additional notation partially cut off at the bottom of the title page, and an annotation in pencil of Henry Blumenberg Jr. Dated July 1, 1925, Los Angeles, Cal., on the fly-leaf. Second edition. This was the first printed book dealing with metallurgy. It was "written for the practicing metallurgist, foundryman, dyer, type-founder, glass-maker, and maker of gunpowder, fireworks and chemicals used in warfare. The second chapter is devoted to alum. Here is first mentioned cobalt blue and manganese and the use of sodium chloride for separating gold and silver from baser metals" (Dibner). Biringuccio here gives the earliest account of typecasting and the making of statues, medallions, and bells. "Agricola freely borrowed several sections of the Pirotechnia for use in his later work" (Hoover). All of Biringuccio's descriptions are original, and his intention with the book was definitely descriptive. He viewed alchemy as "nontechnical and noncodifiable" by its practitioners.

ARISTOTLE
1550 1ed Nicomachean Ethics MEDICI Italian Aristotle Medieval Greek Philosophy “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Aristotle The “Nicomachean Ethics” is considered the most important historical philosophical work – it is known to have had important impacts on the Middle Ages as a founding piece in medieval philosophy. In this work, Aristotle’s best-known work on ethics, Aristotle seeks to separate the difference between practical and theoretical living; encouraging readers to embrace living the best possible lives rather than just discussing what that looks like. This work stirred controversy for centuries, however. Even during the times of Bacon and Hobbes, philosophers would argue that Aristotle’s views on ethical living were interfering with their own philosophies. Aristotle makes many valid arguments in “Ethics,” but few resound more than these: • Be of virtue, deserving the highest of praise • Have the justice and fairness of a good ruler • Show practical judgment • Be a truly good friend Aristotle was the first philosopher to write a treatise on ethics. Because there were no preexisting expectations on what ‘ethical living’ meant, he decided to ‘start with what would be roughly agreed to be true by people of good up-bringing and experienced in life.’ (Kraut). This translation with added commentary was done by Bernardo Segni, a notable Aristotle scholar who translated many Aristotle works into Italian. This edition was dedicated to his patron – Cosimo Medici. Segni's comments are aimed at guiding the reader towar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prynted For Andrewe Hester [actually printed in Zurich by Christopher Froschover], [London]. Quarto (9 x 7 1/4"). Fo. lxxxix (89) to Fo. cccxcix (399). Error in foliation: leaf cxix wrongly numbered cxx. ccclxxvii and ccclxxviii omited in pagination. 18th-century full calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. Decorative woodcut initials. Originally published in 1535, this book represents the first translation of the complete Bible into English. "In 1534, following Pope Clement VII's refusal to approve the annulment of Henry VIII's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, the English Parliament, at the King's insistence, passed a series of acts that separated the English Church from the Roman hierarchy. In the following weeks, the Canterbury Convocation* petitioned for an English translation of the scriptures to be produced. By denying the supremacy of the Papacy, Henry VIII had raised the scriptures above the authority of Rome, making it imperative that they be published and the King as supreme ecclesiastical head reserved the sole right to authorize publication of an English Bible. It was Miles Coverdale (1488-1568) who was to produce this." (For more information, see: F. L. Cross & E. A. Livingstone's "The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church," OUP (1974), article: "Convocations of Canterbury and York"). "The first edition of the Coverdale's Bible was printed, probably at Marburg, in 1535, and was inscribed to Henry, "our Moses." The translator sent copies of his Bible to England for review by the King. Henry VIII turned it over to various Bishops for com … [Click Below for Full Description]

1550 - 17 Antique prints, titled: '[Group of 20 woodcuts from a ca. 1550 Theuerdank edition].' - 20 woodcuts on 17 sheets. These woodcuts are all illustrations to Theuerdank, a poetic work composed by Emperor Maximilian I. Drawing on Arthurian romances, Theuerdank tells the fictionalised story in verse, of Maximilian (as Theuerdank) travelling to the Duchy of Burgundy to marry Mary of Burgundy (Erenreich), and the subsequent eight years of his life as ruler of the Duchy. The images show court scenes, landscapes, knights and adventures. An illustration from 'Theuerdank' (original title: "Die geverlicheiten vnd einsteils der geschichten des loblichen streytparen vnd hochberümbten helds vnd ritters herr Tewrdannckhs"). This work was published nine times between the first edition (1517) and 1693. We believe this page to be from a ca. 1550 edition. The (in total) 118 woodblocks for this sumptuous edition were mostly prepared by Jost de Negker after designs by Schaufelein, Burgkmair and Leonhard Beck. Woodcut on hand laid paper. Made by 'Jost de Negker' after 'Hans Burgkmair'. Jost de Negker (c. 1485-1544) was a woodblock cutter for woodcuts and print publisher. He was mostly active in Augsburg, Germany. He was the leading (reproductive) block cutter of his time, but always worked after designs of others. Hans Burgkmair the Elder (1473–1531) was a German painter and woodcut printmaker. He was a student of Martin Schongauer. Most of the woodcuts attributed to Burgkmair are book illustrations, as here. Fair, given age. Sold with all faults. The sheets quite damaged, with tears … [Click Below for Full Description]

Coverdale, Miles (Translated into English by)
Prynted For Andrewe Hester [actually printed in Zurich by Christopher Froschover], [London]. Quarto (9 x 7 1/4"). Fo. lxxxix (89) to Fo. cccxcix (399). Error in foliation: leaf cxix wrongly numbered cxx. ccclxxvii and ccclxxviii omited in pagination. 18th-century full calf, with gold lettering and tooling to spine. Raised bands. Decorative woodcut initials. Originally published in 1535, this book represents the first translation of the complete Bible into English. "In 1534, following Pope Clement VII's refusal to approve the annulment of Henry VIII's marriage to Catherine of Aragon, the English Parliament, at the King's insistence, passed a series of acts that separated the English Church from the Roman hierarchy. In the following weeks, the Canterbury Convocation* petitioned for an English translation of the scriptures to be produced. By denying the supremacy of the Papacy, Henry VIII had raised the scriptures above the authority of Rome, making it imperative that they be published and the King as supreme ecclesiastical head reserved the sole right to authorize publication of an English Bible. It was Miles Coverdale (1488-1568) who was to produce this." (For more information, see: F. L. Cross & E. A. Livingstone's "The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church," OUP (1974), article: "Convocations of Canterbury and York"). "The first edition of the Coverdale's Bible was printed, probably at Marburg, in 1535, and was inscribed to Henry, "our Moses." The translator sent copies of his Bible to England for review by the King. Henry VIII turned it over to various Bishops for com … [Click Below for Full Description]
