Deuxième édition de la traduction de la Rhétorique et la poétique par Bernardo SEGNI (1504-1558), après celle de 1549, imprimée à Florence chez Lorenzo Torrentino. Dans cette traduction, SEGNI précise au lecteur l'usage qu'il conviendra de faire du savoir rhétorique qu'il propose, la rhétorique "ne doit pas viser ce qui est opposé aux bonnes lois et aux bonnes moeurs, mais au contraire, ce qui est sanctionné et légitimé par celles-ci". SEGNI ajoute à sa traduction une Dichiaratione sopra la Rettorica, qui présente l'ouvrage et en donne un résumé commenté.

RISM Recueils 1551/2 (4 complete copies, none in the U.S.). & & Gombert was a pupil of Josquin, according to the theorist Hermann Finck. "The motets are [his] most representative works. The texts are more often taken from scripture than from the liturgy, many being freely arranged selections of passages from psalms. Marian compositions account for more than a quarter of the motets; few appear to be secular texts of the type written for special occasions... Contemporaries ranked Gombert among the great. From 1529 until long after his death, his works figured prominently in the output of the major European printers, and the Venetian publishers Scotto and Gardane brought out collected editions of his motets between 1539 and 1552, paralleling their projects with Willaert and Jacquet of Mantua.

But through slight reductions in scoring, occasional use of homophonic passages, melodic repetition and careful attention to the text setting (an aspect not immediately apparent in the text underlay of the Opera omnia), he achieved a rhetorical clarity in the presentation of the text unmatched by most of his contemporaries with the exception of Rore, with whom he shared the admiration of theorists in this respect as well as some conflicting attributions.

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.

APPIAN, of Alexandria [c95-c165]
Paris: Charles Estienne, 1551.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.

Contemporary blindstamped pigskin over bevelled wooden boards, with clasps (some minor damage to foot of spine). A fine copy of the second illustrated edition of Bock's famous herbal. The first illustrated edition (1546) was also published by Rihel and contained 477 woodcuts. The excellent illustrations are by David Kandel, mostly based on those of Fuch and Brunfels. Some one hundred are entirely original, and include several with charming genre scenes accompanying the plant depictions, many with his initials. Bock was one of the 'Fathers of German Botany' the triumvirate that included Brunfels and Fuchs. As a botanist Bock was their decided superior. He was not shackled to the classical authority of Dioscorides and Pliny, and therefore could recognise new plants without his perception being clouded by supposed classical precedents. He pioneered descriptive botany, giving a detailed developmental history of each plant in its stages of growth, and was the first to discuss plant communities, thus foreshadowing the science of ecology.

Andrea Alciato, commonly known as Alciati (Andreas Alciatus) (January 12, 1492 - 1550), was an Italian jurist and writer. He is regarded as the founder of the French school of legal humanists. Alciati was born in Alzate Brianza, near Milan, and settled in France in the early 16th century. He displayed great literary skill in his exposition of the laws, and was one of the first to interpret the civil law by the history, languages and literature of antiquity, and to substitute original research for the servile interpretations of the glossators. He published many legal works, and some annotations on Tacitus. Alciati is most famous for his Emblemata, published in dozens of editions from 1531 onward. This collection of short Latin verse texts and accompanying woodcuts created an entire European genre, the emblem book, which attained enormous popularity in continental Europe and Great Britain

F.Osborn, Justin Martyr); "Most outstanding of the Apologists, the first Christian thinker to reconcile faith and reason" (Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church). Justin was born c.100, of pagan parents, at Flavia Neapolis (modern Nablus) in Samaria, near the ruins of biblical Shechem. Having devoted his youth to the classical philosophers, he embraced Christianity and commenced evangelical work at Ephesus, especially among Jews, in the 130s. Moving to Rome, he ran a Christian mission throughout the reign of Antoninus Pius (138-161), numbering the future theologian Tatian among his pupils, maintaining links with ordinary Romans by living above a public bath house.

BOETHIUS, MALIUS SEVERINUS. - [CULTURAL NON-CONFORMITY OF THE RENAISSANCE]
Firenze, Lorenzo Torrentino, 1551. 8vo. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title to spine. Light soiling to boards. Old annotations to front end-papers. A few leaves brownspotted. A fine and tight copy. Woodcut title-vignette and woodcut initials. 236, (1, -errata) pp.. Scarce first edition of famous Renaissance Humanist Cosimo Bartoli's seminal translation into Italian of Boethius' milestone work, one of the most influential and widely read works throughout the Middle Ages and the Reniassance. Bartoli's translation, which was preferred by several lecturers at the academy (e.g. Serafini), marks a turning point for the Florentine Academy and the beginning of the cultural non-conformity of the Italian Humanists connected hereto. The work constitutes a great collaboration between the famous, widely respected and learned Humanist polymath Bartoli and the important Renaissance printer Torrentino, whose fame rests mainly upon the works by Humanists of the Florentine academy that he published from the middle of the 16th century in Florence. Furthermore, the translation constitutes an important insight into the principles of linguistics and the importance of language to the dissemination of learning in the Renaissance. "The Flemish printer Laurens Lenaerts van der Beke, or Lorenzo Torrentino as he was known in Florence, had set up business in the city in 1547 with the title of "impressore ducale", providing an official outlet for academic writings and a convenient focus for ducal surveillance of the printed word."
