CECCHI, Giovanni Maria (1518-1587)
Venezia, Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, 1550. In 12mo (mm 135x72). Carte 36 [i.e. 43], [1]. Segnatura: A-C¹² D8. Marca xilografica al frontespizio ed in fine. 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. Fu notaio e occupò importanti uffici pubblici. Esercitò anche … [Click Below for Full Description]

Early English Health and Medicine]; Elyot Sir Thomas
London Imprinted at London in Fletestrete, in the house of Thomas Berthelet, Cum privilegio ad imprimendum solum [1548-1550?]. Very Early Printed Edition in English. Black letter, title within a metalcut border dated 1534 (McKerrow and Ferguson 30), woodcut initials. 131 x 85 mm., bound in old calf, now restored at the back and with endleaves renewed. 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

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").

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]

It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts , some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe. His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias.

AMSDORF, Nicolaus von.
Kolb, Lutheran ecclesiastical culture: 1550-1675, pp. 47-48; VD16, A2381 (A2382, the second issue). First issue of the first and only edition of a pamphlet on the "true Evangelical doctrine", by the German Lutheran theologian and reformer Nicolaus von Amsdorf (1483-1565). The pamphlet was published after Johann Pfeffinger held two disputations on the nature of free will. This pamphlet "... reproduced Pfeffinger's teaching in distorted form, maintaining that Pfeffinger and his colleagues had taught that human beings can prepare themselves for grace by their own free will and situate themselves so that God can give them grace..." (Kolb). The text is followed by a section against the "bitter falsehoods" as believed by Justus Menius (1499-1558) and others. Included at the end is a brief and sharp reply by Pfeffinger.A few marginal water stains, otherwise in very good condition.
