        La libraria

      Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari. 12mo. 72 leaves. With the printer's device on the title-page and on leaf F12v.(bound with:)- - -. La seconda libraria...Al s. Ferrante Caraffa. Venezia, [Gualtiero Scoto], 1551 (At the end:) Venezia, Francesco Marcolini, June 1551. 12mo. 112, (8) leaves. Scoto's device on the title-page and Marcolini's device at leaf K11v.Contemporary vellum with manuscript title on the spine, ties lacking, lightly darkened, on the front pastedown is printed the bookplate of the lawyer Francesco Bubani, two manuscript entries in the text at leaf A9v-r and a note on the back fly-leaf ("giulii de la moneta di Pisa", the initials "MFB" are stamped on the lower blank margin of the title-page, first title a bit worn, some light dampstains, but still a genuine copy in good condition.I:) SECOND ENLARGED AND REVIDED EDITION printed by Giolito in the same year of the first edition. The main differences between the first and this second edition are: in the title-page "all'altre lingue' was changed to "dall'altre lingue'; the entries were augmented from 158 to 170 (what obliged the printer to add several more lines in a page to maintain the same collation); the name of Ludovico Domenichi was suppressed in the catalogue of the authors; at the end of a notice (l. 43v of the first edition, l. 44 of the second) is added a short note clearly addressed against Domenichi, even though his name is not explicitly mentioned; the last two leaves, blank in the first edition, contain in the second Doni's so-called "Saying of the Mule' ("La diceria della Mula'), already printed in his Lettere of 1547.With the "first' Libraria, Doni tried to create a catalogue of all books in Italian issued from the times of Gutenberg to his time. The work is generally credited to be the first bibliography of Italian literature and also as the first catalogue of Italian "books-in-print' (cf. A. Quondam, Dal libro manoscritto all'editoria di massa, in: "Letteratura italiana. Produzione e consume", Torino, 1983, pp. 622-631)."Non stupisce, pertanto, che un tale entusiasta del "secreto' di "Giovanni da Magonza', oltretutto dotato di una appuntita sensibilità nell'intuire le grandi risorse dell'editoria moderna, abbia potuto concepire e realizzare l'impresa della Libraria, anzi delle "Librerie', ovvero l'ambizioso progetto di "dar cognizione di tutti i libri stampati vulgari', ... La crescita tumultuosa dell'attività editoriale, così ben espressa dalle parole dello Sbandito appena riportate, per cui si moltiplica a dismisura l'offerta e la disponibilità di libri sul mercato, induce lo scrittore fiorentino, già editore in proprio e stretto collaboratore di editori importanti, a concepire un'opera di frontiera, che si pone, almeno a tutta prima, come un tentativo di "ordinare il disordine', ma che è anche una riflessione sul modo e del senso del "fare letteratura' nell'età in cui la stampa ne ha del tutto rivoluzionato i meccanismi della produzione, della diffusione e della fruizione... Nel 1550, giunto da un paio d'anni a Venezia, Doni pubblica presso il suo primo editore veneziano di riferimento, Gabriele Giolito, la Libraria, seguita, forse nello stesso anno, forse nel 1551, da una nuova edizione, per il medesimo Giolito e fratelli. Le "Librarie' Giolitine son, per l'appunto, un catalogo di autori e libri in volgare (comprensivi di traduzioni dal latino, pubblicati fra la fine del Quattrocento e gli anni Cinquanta del Cinquecento. Questo fu il vero, e circoscritto, scopo iniziale, per il quale non si prevedeva un seguito, se non nei termini di successivi aggiornamenti al passo con la produzione di nuove stampe; insomma; insomma, non mi sembra del tutto inappropriato di definire la Libraria del 1550 come una sorta di moderno "catalogo dei libri in commercio' " (P. Pellizzari, "Per dar cognizione di tutti i libri stampati vulgari": la "Libraria' del Doni, in "Nascita della storiografia e organizzazione dei saperi", E. Mattioda, ed., Florence, 2010, pp. 43-45; see also G. Castellani, "Non tutto ma di tutto': "La Libraria' del Doni, in: "La Bibliofilia", 114/3, 2012, pp. 327-352).Very important is also the sixth section of the Libraria, entirely devoted to music. Doni was thus among the first to publish a list with printed music. The section opens with a dedicatory letter to the Franco-Flemish composer and organist, whom Doni asks to obtain from some French musician a listb of music printed in France (cf. J. Haar, The "Libraria' of Antonfrancesco Doni, in: "Musica Disciplina", 24, 1970, pp. 101-123).Edit 16, CNCE17683; Universal STC, no. 827609; S. Bongi, Annali di Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari da Trino di Monferrato stampatore in Venezia, (Rome, 1890-1895), I, pp.297-298; G. Castellani, op. cit., pp. 335-337; C. Ricottini Marsili-Libelli, Anton Francesco Doni, scrittore e stampatore, (Florence, 1960), no. 22.II:) FIRST EDITION. In the Seconda Libraria Doni lists Italian manuscripts that he has personally examined (cf. P. Pellizzari, La novella come cornice: la "Seconda libraria' del Doni, in: "In Verbis", I/2, 2011; pp. 101-122 and J. Bradbury, Anton Francesco Doni and his "Librarie': Bibliographical Friend or Fiend?, in: "Forum for Modern Language Studies", 45, 2009, 90-107).Of great interest in the Seconda Libraria is the description of the contemporary Italian academies (leaves 106-113). "... è con Marcolini che Doni può realizzare le sue opere più originali e meno canoniche, stravolgendo il sistema dei generi letterari in contrasto con l'affermazione di una più rigida normativa di matrice aristotelica. Questa nuova fase è inaugurata proprio dalla Seconda Libraria, apparsa nel 1551 e riedita nel 1555, che registra i manoscritti di opere in volgare, per i quali, pertanto, il lettore non ha alcuna garanzia della loro esistenza se non quella offerta dal redattore. E infatti.. l'infiltrazione di opere e di autori del tutto inventati è assai alta, benché non assoluta. Una parte della Seconda Libraria, poi, contiene una sorta di censimento delle Accademie italiane, in cui, con la consueta perspicacia, Doni mostra di aver colto la nuova portata e consistenza di questa istituzione" (P. Pellizzari, op. cit., p. 45).Another interesting issue is his "fedele' version of Machiavelli's novella Belfagor Arcidiovolo, also known under the title and Il demonio che prese moglie, of which he pretended to have had "l'originale in mano' (cf. B. Moriconi, Le metamorfosi di un arcidiavolo. Evoluzione e trasformazione del personaggio di Belfagor da Machiavelli a oggi, Diss., Rome, 2012, pp. 58-59).Edit 16, CNCE 17686; Universal STC, no. 827616; S. Casali, Gli annali della tipografia veneziana di Francesco Marcolini, (Forlì, 1861), pp. 191-202, no. 83; G. Castellani, op.cit., pp. 337-340; C. Ricottini Marsili-Libelli, op. cit., no. 32.ANTON FRANCESCO DONI was born in Florence, the son of a scissors-maker and second hand dealer. The first extant reliable information on him is that after 1535 he joined the religious order of the Servi di Maria in the Florentine convent of the Santissima Annunziata, taking the name of brother Valerio. During his stay there Doni became a friend of the sculptor Giovannangelo Montorsoli, a disciple of Michelangelo. In 1540 they both left Florence and the convent and moved to Genoa; the following year Doni transferred to Alessandria, where he stayed with Antonio Trotti and Isabella Guasco. In 1542 he spent shorter periods in Pavia and Milan, and then moved to Piacenza to begin studying law. Very soon, however, he gave up juridical studies and followed his inclination for literature. In Piacenza Doni joined the Accademia degli Ortolani, a group of intellectuals with whom he shared a very polemical, anti-classical attitude. Among its most prominent members were Giuseppe Betussi, Girolamo Parabosco, and Lodovico Domenichi. To Domenichi in particular Doni was bound by a very close friendship, following him to Venice, where he was introduced to Pietro Aretino and where he published the first book of his Lettere as well as the Dialogo della Musica (1544). Soon afterwards Doni travelled back to Florence, where he began to take part in the meetings of the Accademia degli Umidi. In 1546 he became secretary of the Accademia Fiorentina and, with the aid of Cosimo I de' Medici, duke of Florence, tried to establish a printing house of his own. The business turned out to be disastrous, however, and lasted only from 1546 to 1548. In this period Doni published approximately twenty texts closely connected with the activities of the Accademia Fiorentina. In 1548, after the failure of his printing house, Doni broke off his relations with the Florentine milieu leaving Florence once and for all and, after a violent quarrel whose reasons remain obscure, ending his personal relationship with Domenichi. Back in Venice, Doni edited the first Italian version of Thomas More's Utopia, translated by Ortensio Lando (1548). Healso had begun a close collaboration with the printer Gabriele Giolito with the publication of the Disegno (1549), a book concerned with the primacy of figurative art. In 1550 Giolito published three further volumes by Doni: Fortuna di Cesare, Prima Libraria, and Medaglie. In his writings from 1549 onwards Doni often mentions the Accademia Pellegrina. However, this is neither the name of an existing institution (as it was believed until recently), nor the designation of a project for the creation of a new community of intellectuals; Doni's Accademia Pellegrina is simply a literary fiction and an important element of the setting of his works. Doni's most productive period coincided with the years 1551-1553, when he was a collaborator of the printer Francesco Marcolini, who during this triennium printed many of Doni's major works: the Seconda Libraria (1551), the Zucca (1551-52), the Moral Filosofia (1552), the Marmi (1552-53), the diptych Mondi-Inferni (1552-53), the Pistolotti amorosi (1552). In 1555 Doni suddenly left Venice and went to Urbino, where he wanted to obtain the patronage of Duke Guidobaldo II della Rovere with the aid of Pietro Aretino. Aretino, however, refused, and to take revenge for what he considered a betrayal, in 1556 Doni wrote a very aggressive book, the Terremoto (Earthquake), in which he predicted that his former friend would die before the end of the year – exactly as happened. Between 1557 and 1558 Doni stayed in Ancona, where he tried to open a new printing house, but he was soon compelled to leave because of an edict of Pope Paul IV which ruled that all those who had left the priesthood should return to their convents. There is no clarity regarding the details of the following three years of Doni's life. However, between 1562 and 1563 he was certainly in Arquà, where he planned a monument in honour of Petrarch, which was never built. In 1562 Giolito printed Il Cancellieri dell'Eloquenza, Il Cancellieri della Memoria, the Dichiarazione sopra il XIII cap. dell'Apocalisse, and the second revised edition of the diptych Mondi-Inferni with the new title Mondi terrestri, celesti e infernali. In 1564, Le Pitture was published in Padua by the printer Grazioso Percaccino. This work collects the invenzioni, or allegorical descriptions of love, fortune, time, sleep, and death, which Doni had created to adorn the projected monument dedicated to Petrarch. In 1567 Doni and his son Silvio moved to Monselice, near Padua. In the same year he composed the Lumiera, a short poem that takes up themes from the main works of the 1550s. The following year, Giorgio de' Cavalli printed an updated edition of the Mondi in Venice, the last before Doni's death. Doni's works enjoyed great success throughout Europe and were soon translated into other major European languages: Spanish (Zucca en español, 1552), English (The Moral Philosophy of Doni, 1570), and French (Les Mondes célestes, terrestres et infernaux, 1578, 1580, 1583). In July 1574 Doni returned to Venice, where he offered Henry III of Valois the precious manuscript of a poem in ottava rima, the Guerra di Cipro. This is the last known fact of Doni's life. He died soon after, in September 1574 – still in Venice, according to some sources, or back in Monselice, according to other (cf. P. Pelizzari, Nota biografica, in: "Doni, I Mondi e gli Inferni, Torino, 1994, pp. LXIX-LXXXIV)..

        Sepolcro di Nerone

      1551 - Bulino, 1551, firmato e data to in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rfilata al rame ed applicata su antico supporto di collezione, in ottimo sttao di conservazione. Nel 1540 Antonio Lafreri, originario di Besançon trapiantato a Roma, ha iniziato la pubblicazione di mappe e altre immagini stampate che raffiguravano principali monumenti e delle antichità di Roma. Queste immagini erano legate al gusto per l'antichità classica che ha alimentato l'evento culturale che chiamiamo Rinascimento. Dopo che il Lafreri pubblicò una pagina di titolo, verso il 1573, le collezioni di queste stampe assunsero il nome di " Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae". Engraving, 1551, signed and dated at lower right. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark and laid down on antique paper, very good condition. In 1540 Antonio Lafreri, a native of Besançon transplanted to Rome, began publishing maps and other printed images that depicted major monuments and antiquities in Rome. These images were calculated to appeal to the taste for classical antiquity that fueled the cultural event we call the Renaissance. After Lafreri published a title page in the mid-1570s, collections of these prints came to be known as the Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae, the "Mirror of Roman Magnificence." Tourists and other collectors who bought prints from Lafreri made their own selections and had them individually bound. Over time, Lafreri's title page served as starting point for large and eclectic compilations, expanded and rearranged by generations of collectors. C. L.

        De schipvaert ende reysen gedaen int landt van Turckyen, ...Antwerp, Willem Silvius, 1576. Small 4to. Title-page with a woodcut pictorial frame, and 61 full-page woodcut costume plates with letterpress. 17th-century (?) vellum.

      Colas 2205; Mortimer (French) 386 note & (German) 319 note; cf. Atabey 870-872 (other eds). First issue of the rare first Dutch edition of Nicolay's observations when he accompanied the French King François I's 1551 embassy to Constantinople, with special attention to the costumes. The plates of the first (French) edition of 1567, designed by Nicolay himself, were "the first to represent the costume of the Near East in detail" (Mortimer). Nicolay, in 105 chapters arranged as four books, then describes the voyage and the lands and peoples seen, but the costumes of people from various regions, religions, occupations, social strata, etc., clearly fascinated him more than anything else. Many chapters are devoted to individual groups of people, and these are nearly always illustrated with one, two or even three full-page woodcuts showing their styles of costume. Slightly browned, some waterstains and dark patches, one plate damaged, the binding soiled. Overall still a good copy of a finely illustrated work on Near Eastern costumes.

Woodcut printer's device on title, foliated and grotesque woodcut Greek initials and matching head- and tailpieces and borders for initials. Folio (309x199mm), bound in the antique vellum binding. 393, [1] leaf. A handsome and well preserved copy with some normal aging or age mellowing to the binding and some abrasion or offsetting at the first and second leaves. Inner margin skillfully restored at the initial leaf. FIRST EDITION, RARE. ?Editio Princeps of Appian?s histories of the various Roman wars from the earliest times to the accession of Vespasian (A.D. 70). The edition was begun by Robert Estienne before his departure from Paris and completed and printed by Charles Estienne. This volume is generally cited as the supreme example of the use of the Royal Greek types; it is, in fact the first classical text printed in all three sizes of the ?grecs du roi? (first used together the preceding year in the New Testament). ?One of the most exquisite books printed from these fonts...is Charles and Robert Estienne?s Greek edition of Appian...All three sizes of type are used in it. The type in mass, and the proportion and imposition of the type-page, are very splendid, and there is another reason for looking at it. The superb decorations and initials by Tory...are wonderful, in their accord with the colour of the Greek text, in their printable qualities and in their grace of design.?? [D. B.

        [Greek Title]?Romanarum Historiarum?Ex Bibliotheca Regia

      Paris: Charles Estienne, 1551. Editio Princeps of the Appian?s history of Rome to the time of the accession of Vespasian in 70 A.D., a work of particular value for containing the only comprehensive and detailed information available for the period of the civil wars. It is one of a series of Greek texts printed by the Estiennes from manuscripts in the royal library, but the first of only two Greek works to bear Charles Estienne?s imprint. The project was initiated by his brother Robert but completed by Charles following Robert?s departure from Paris. Unfortunately Charles was not a businessman by inclination, and after only ten years as head of the press, he was reduced to poverty and died in debtor?s prison. "This volume is generally cited as the supreme example of the use of the Royal Greek types; it is, in fact, the first classical text printed in all three sizes of [Garamond?s] "grecs du roi" (first used together the preceding year in the New Testament?". (Schreiber) "One of the most exquisite books printed from these fonts is Charles and Robert Estienne's Greek edition of Appian?All three sizes of type are used in it.

        Golia

      1551 - Acquaforte, 1551, priva di firma. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con parziale filigrana del "Pellegrino", rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Nei primi anni del sedicesimo secolo gli artisti tedeschi iniziarono ad interrogarsi ed a realizzare, sia in pittura che nel disegno e nell’incisione, dei paesaggi puri, privi di qualsiasi figura. Per la prima volta nel nord Europa questi artisti quindi realizzavano paesaggi non semplicemente come sfondo di scena, ma come soggetto o tema principale. I due principali interpreti di questa corrente, che prese il nome di Scuola del Danubio dal loro luogo di nascita, furono Albrecht Altdorfer e Wolf Huber. In questo contesto rientra Hans Lautensack; la sua reputazione artistica è tutta riferita all’opera incisa, che sin da giovane apprese in Norimberga, città dove si trasferì assieme alla famiglia. La produzione ad intaglio è basata su paesaggi (Hollstein 7-34) e sui ritratti (Hollstein 48-76). Nel 1554 l’imperatore Ferdinando I portò l’artista a Vienna, dove il Lautensack realizzò un notevole numero di ritratti di umanisti e personaggi della corte reale, introducendo un nuovo stile nella ritrattistica, rappresentando i suoi personaggi con un paesaggio chiaramente visibile dietro il ritratto. Nonostante si riferisse a se stesso con l’appellativo di pittore, nessun dipinto di questo particolare artista è oggi conosciuto. Ex collezione Germanischen Nationalmuseums di Norinberga (Lugt 1076) . Bibliografia: Hollstein 2; Bartsch 51. Dimensioni 118x172. Etching, 1551, without signature. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper with incomplete "Pilgrim" watermark, trimmer to platemark, in perfect condition. In the first years of the XVI century some German artists started to study and work on landscapes, both in painting and engraving, without any figure. For the first time in Northern Europe these artists were realizing landscapes not only as a background of a scene, but as main theme of a subject. The two most relevant interpreters of the so called Danube School, due to their birthplace, were Albrecht Altdorfer and Wolf Huber. Hans Lautensack was also part of the same group; his artistic reputation was built tank to the engravings he realized since his training in Nuremberg, where he lived with his family. His main production shows basically landscapes (Hollstein 7-34) and portraits (Hollstein 48-76). In 1554 Emperor Ferdinando I brought the artist to Vienna, where Lautensack realized a considerable amount of portraits of humanists and people belonging to the royal court. He thus introduced a new style in portraiture, realizing his subjects with an outstanding landscape in the background. Though he called himself "a painter", no painting belonging to this artist is known. Ex collezione Germanischen Nationalmuseums di Norinberga (Lugt 1076) . Bibliografia: Hollstein 2; Bartsch 51.

        [In Greek:] TRAGODIAI OKTOKAIDEKA. [then:] TRAGOEDIAE OCTODECIM

      Basileae: Ioannem Heruagium, 1551. Second Edition in the original Greek. This is the second collected edition of Euripides in the original language, and the combination here of text, annotations, provenance, and binding present us with a wonderful relic of 16th century humanism, scholarship, and aesthetics. Our edition follows the Aldine printing in 1503, and it is the first of a series of at least five editions of Euripides issued in Basel by Hervagius and/or Johannes Oporinus between 1537 and 1562. The present edition was adjudged to be "very correct" in Edward Harwood's "Biographia Classica" and is called by Dibdin "the most valuable of all the ancient editions of Euripides." Influenced by the new philosophy of Anaxagoras, Euripides (ca. 480-406 B.C.) was a sophisticated thinker who questioned traditional beliefs about the gods, and who as a consequence ended up changing the course of Greek tragedy from that charted by Aeschylus and Sophocles. In the world of Euripides, the gods are not always just, and crime sometimes pays. His characters strike moderns and even post-moderns as painfully true to life. Some of his dramas, such as the "Bacchae" and "Medea," end with shocking bloodshed, while others, such as "Helen" and "Alcestis," have happy endings, and point the way to the New Comedy of Menander. Our copy was bound in pigskin by Frobenius Hempel, identified by the Bavarian State Library's bookbinding database EBDB as the so-called "Wittenberg Master," known to have worked from 1549 until his death in 1575. The Protestant Reformation had made Wittenberg a center of book production as well as the home of Lutheranism, so it is no surprise that a learned Lutheran theologian like Joannes ab (or Johann von) Exter would have his books bound there. Exter was the spiritual leader of the Church of Lippe as well as General Superintendent of Detmold from 1566 to 1599. He must have been an erudite and well-to-do man: he read Greek well, as he has not only commented on the text here, but also corrected the printed Greek text in a couple of places. The Lippe Landesbibliothek in Detmold still holds 13 incunabula from his collection (mostly theological texts), all finely bound in blind-stamped calf or pigskin. Our volume is remarkably well preserved, the binding with its original hardware and with the intricate details in the panel stamps clearly visible. We can see a partially-clothed Bathsheba bathing with the assistance of her maid, while the lustful David watches from a tower, pointing to a map of the battle that will send Uriah to his death. On the lower cover, Judith triumphantly deposits the head of Holofernes into a sack held open by her smirking maid.. 203 x 130 mm. (8 x 5 1/8"). [464] leaves. Edited by Joannes Oporinus. Second Edition in the original Greek. VERY FINE CONTEMPORARY BLIND-STAMPED PIGSKIN over bevelled wooden boards BY FROBENIUS HEMPEL FOR JOHANN VON EXTER (panel stamps signed with initials "F H"), covers framed by multiple rules and Spes-Fides-Charitas roll, upper cover with central panel stamp showing David and Bathsheba, with the initials "I E" in a space above the stamp and the date "1557" below it, lower cover with panel depicting Judith and her maid with Holofernes' head; raised bands, spine panels decorated with foliate rolls, ink titling in head panel and on fore edge of text block, two original brass clasps and catches.Front pastedown with modern ink owner's signature of A. Stanley [illegible]; title page with neat ink inscription and ink stamp of M. Ioannes ab Exter, verso of title with an ink stamp of Exter's seal of office, with the motto "Disce mori, disce vivere" ["Learn to die, learn to live"] and the date 1567 (see below); verso of front free endpaper with early Latin inscription regarding the merits of Euripides and Sophocles; occasional early ink marginalia in Latin. Adams E-1033; Dibdin I, 536; Hoffmann II, 68. For the binding: Haebler I, 173 #II; I, 21 #I; I, 173 #IV. Spine and edges somewhat darkened, extremities and joints a little rubbed, a short worm trail to front pastedown, leaves lightly browned, with isolated smudges or rust spots, but still A REALLY EXCELLENT COPY, the leaves clean, fresh, and well-margined, and the binding very well preserved, with the panel stamps in sharp relief.This is the second collected edition of Euripides in the original language, and the combination here of text, annotations, provenance, and binding present us with a wonderful relic of 16th century humanism, scholarship, and aesthetics. Our edition follows the Aldine printing in 1503, and it is the first of a series of at least five editions of Euripides issued in Basel by Hervagius and/or Johannes Oporinus between 1537 and 1562.

Oktober 1608 in Löwen) war ein Jesuit spanischer Herkunft, der insbesondere als Hexentheoretiker hervortrat, sowie Jurist und Philologe.- Delrios Hauptwerk sind die Disquisitionum magicarum libri sex. Dieser Hexentraktat wurde von 1599 bis 1600 in drei Teilen gedruckt. Obwohl das Werk über 20 Auflagen erlebte (der letzte Nachdruck wurde 1755 in Köln veranstaltet), beschränkte sich seine Wirkung auf den des Lateinischen mächtigen Teil der Gesellschaft, insbesondere den Klerus. Delrio lieferte mit dieser Schrift ein annähernd umfassendes Kompendium aller wichtigen, bisher erschienenen Hexentraktate, darunter der Hexenhammer und das Werk von Jean Bodin. Damit lieferte er seinen Lesern zugleich ein umfassendes Bild der Entwicklung der Hexenlehre und des Dämonenglaubens. Der Glaube an Besessenheit und die Notwendigkeit von Teufelsaustreibungen sind für ihn wichtige Bestandteile der christlichen Lehre. Dabei betont er, dass er sich keinerlei Art von Zauberei ohne Ketzerei vorstellen kann. Somit stellte auch die Weiße Magie für ihn ein verfolgungswürdiges Verbrechen dar.Lib. I.

        [In Greek:] TRAGODIAI OKTOKAIDEKA. [then:] TRAGOEDIAE OCTODECIM

      Basileae: Ioannem Heruagium, 1551. Second Edition in the original Greek. This is the second collected edition of Euripides in the original language, and the combination here of text, annotations, provenance, and binding present us with a wonderful relic of 16th century humanism, scholarship, and aesthetics. Our edition follows the Aldine printing in 1503, and it is the first of a series of at least five editions of Euripides issued in Basel by Hervagius and/or Johannes Oporinus between 1537 and 1562. The present edition was adjudged to be "very correct" in Edward Harwood's "Biographia Classica" and is called by Dibdin "the most valuable of all the ancient editions of Euripides." Influenced by the new philosophy of Anaxagoras, Euripides (ca. 480-406 B.C.) was a sophisticated thinker who questioned traditional beliefs about the gods, and who as a consequence ended up changing the course of Greek tragedy from that charted by Aeschylus and Sophocles. In the world of Euripides, the gods are not always just, and crime sometimes pays. His characters strike moderns and even post-moderns as painfully true to life. Some of his dramas, such as the "Bacchae" and "Medea," end with shocking bloodshed, while others, such as "Helen" and "Alcestis," have happy endings, and point the way to the New Comedy of Menander. Our copy was bound in pigskin by Frobenius Hempel, identified by the Bavarian State Library's bookbinding database EBDB as the so-called "Wittenberg Master," known to have worked from 1549 until his death in 1575. The Protestant Reformation had made Wittenberg a center of book production as well as the home of Lutheranism, so it is no surprise that a learned Lutheran theologian like Joannes ab (or Johann von) Exter would have his books bound there. Exter was the spiritual leader of the Church of Lippe as well as General Superintendent of Detmold from 1566 to 1599. He must have been an erudite and well-to-do man: he read Greek well, as he has not only commented on the text here, but also corrected the printed Greek text in a couple of places. The Lippe Landesbibliothek in Detmold still holds 13 incunabula from his collection (mostly theological texts), all finely bound in blind-stamped calf or pigskin. Our volume is remarkably well preserved, the binding with its original hardware and with the intricate details in the panel stamps clearly visible. We can see a partially-clothed Bathsheba bathing with the assistance of her maid, while the lustful David watches from a tower, pointing to a map of the battle that will send Uriah to his death. On the lower cover, Judith triumphantly deposits the head of Holofernes into a sack held open by her smirking maid.. 203 x 130 mm. (8 x 5 1/8"). [464] leaves. Edited by Joannes Oporinus. Second Edition in the original Greek. VERY FINE CONTEMPORARY BLIND-STAMPED PIGSKIN over bevelled wooden boards BY FROBENIUS HEMPEL FOR JOHANN VON EXTER (panel stamps signed with initials "F H"), covers framed by multiple rules and Spes-Fides-Charitas roll, upper cover with central panel stamp showing David and Bathsheba, with the initials "I E" in a space above the stamp and the date "1557" below it, lower cover with panel depicting Judith and her maid with Holofernes' head; raised bands, spine panels decorated with foliate rolls, ink titling in head panel and on fore edge of text block, two original brass clasps and catches. Front pastedown with modern ink owner's signature of A. Stanley [illegible]; title page with neat ink inscription and ink stamp of M. Ioannes ab Exter, verso of title with an ink stamp of Exter's seal of office, with the motto "Disce mori, disce vivere" ["Learn to die, learn to live"] and the date 1567 (see below); verso of front free endpaper with early Latin inscription regarding the merits of Euripides and Sophocles; occasional early ink marginalia in Latin. Adams E-1033; Dibdin I, 536; Hoffmann II, 68. For the binding: Haebler I, 173 #II; I, 21 #I; I, 173 #IV. Spine and edges somewhat darkened, extremities and joints a little rubbed, a short worm trail to front pastedown, leaves lightly browned, with isolated smudges or rust spots, but still A REALLY EXCELLENT COPY, the leaves clean, fresh, and well-margined, and the binding very well preserved, with the panel stamps in sharp relief. This is the second collected edition of Euripides in the original language, and the combination here of text, annotations, provenance, and binding present us with a wonderful relic of 16th century humanism, scholarship, and aesthetics.

But since we are sometimes compelled against our will by persons of high rank to perform the operation, we shall briefly describe the mode of doing it.” – Paul of Aegina on Castration, Chapter 6. Paulus Aegineta was a 7th-century Byzantine physician. This important collection of works was edited by Alban Thorer, a Swiss Renaissance philologist.

        L'histoire naturelle des estranges poissons marins, avec la vraie peincture & description du daulphin (.) par Pierre Belon du Mans. [Relié à la suite de : ] Historia piscium (.) Histoire des poissons (.) Par Antoine Gouan

      1551 - GOUAN : XVIII-228 ff., [24] A Paris, de l'imprimerie de Regnaud Chaudière [et] A Strasbourg, chez Amand König, 1551 [et] 1770, in-4, GOUAN : XVIII-228 ff, [24] pp. numérotées 229 à 252, et [3] pp, 3 pl. dépliantes / BELON : 2 livres en foliotation continue, 55-[3] feuillets, basane havane du XVIIIe siècle, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, tranches cailloutées, Édition originale du célèbre ouvrage de Pierre Belon du Mans (1517-1564), considéré comme le premier traité d'ichtyologie scientifique ; il est dédicacé au cardinal de Chastillon, dont les armes figurent aux titres des deux livres. Au recto du feuillet final apparait la marque typographique de Regnault Chaudière avec la devise "Tempus Hanc aciem sola retundit virtus". L'ouvrage comprend en tout 21 bois dans le texte qui figurent, sous la dénomination de "poissons", des animaux aquatiques dans une acceptation large, les espèces véritables de poissons et mammifères côtoyant des animaux fabuleux et des animaux terrestres : sont ainsi représentés l'esturgeon, le thon, la brème de mer, le poisson-sanglier, le requin marteau dit "libella que les Grecs nomment zigena", ainsi que le dauphin, le marsouin, une orque au rostre semblable à celui d'un dauphin, représentée mettant bas, ou encore le serpent de mer, le poulpe géant à coquille décrit par Pline, et l'hippopotame. « Belon est l'un des premiers qui, renonçant à l'érudition purement livresque, et aux commentaires des anciens, ont quelques fois "examiné par eux-mêmes" ». Le naturaliste fournit de nombreuses observations pionnières et se montre précurseur dans plusieurs domaines : il porte son intérêt sur l'anatomie des poissons et tente d'entreprendre, avant l'heure, une "anatomie comparée" des intestins, du foie et de l'appareil biliaire du dauphin et du marsouin ; il donne la description du caecum pylorique pour la première fois après Aristote et étudie, bien avant Cuvier, la conformation hépatique ; il s'essaye également à l'embryologie et apporte quelques observations pionnières dans ce domaine. Sa classification des espèces, partiellement empruntée à Pline, comprend 10 divisions : les poissons longs et cartilagineux, les poissons plats et cartilagineux, les poissons sans espine, les grands poissons espineux, , les poissons de figure serpentine, etc. « Cuvier, dans sa monumentale Histoire Naturelle des poissons, Moreau dans le Synonymie des poissons de la France, continuerons de citer ou discuter les diagnoses de Belon. Et n'est-ce pas le plus bel hommage que l'on puisse rendre à l'oeuvre du vieux naturalise manceau que de la trouver, après plus de trois siècles écoulés, encore digne de confiance et d'attentions ? » (Delaunay). En 1553, Charles Estienne fait paraitre une version latine augmentée des poissons de Belon, en format oblong, contenant 187 bois (Petri Bellonii Cenomani De aquatilibus, libri duo. Parisii, Apud Carolum Stephanum), puis une version française complète en 1555, sous le titre De la nature et la diversité des poissons : ces éditions contiennent notamment la célèbre figure du "monstre marin ayant façon d'un moyne" qui n'apparait pas dans l'édition de 1551. Nissen ZBI n° 301. Cole n° 207. Norman n° 179. Paul Delaunay, Pierre Belon naturaliste.
