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." (Bryce, p. 167). As the foremost printer for the Academists, … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHRONICA DE ALFONSO XI], . [DE VALLADOLID, Sanchez]
en Casa de Sebastian Martinez, Valladolid, 1551. A8 - Y8, Z10. 186 ff., in two columns Folio. rebound in full stiff cream vellum, spine with raised bands, burgundy gilt lettered morocco spine label. Illustrated with large detailed wood engraved frontispiece (in black and red) of King Alfonso on horseback, and title page, woodcut initials (some large), and decorative borders. With the bookplate of noted book collector Mary Macmillin Norton. The text is one of Spain's greatest texts on education, early manhood and administrative accomplishments, and is the life story of Alfonso XI (1311 - 1350) king of Leon and Castille. He was declared of age in 1325 and began a reign serving to strengthen the royal power. His father, Fernando IV, had died in 1312, and the country was ruled by a coalition of his grandmother, mother, and granduncles; they died one after the other with his grandmother being the last one to die in 1321, all the while the country was being looted by various factions. He was known among Castilian kings as the Avenger or the Implacable and considered ruthless with his enemies. He died prematurely of the Great Plague at the Siege of Gibraltar, a loss to the country since his rule brought stability to the Spain.In 1551 Charles V appointed Prince Phillip to administer the country's government. This provided an opportunity for the two booksellers Pedro Espinosa in Medina del Campo and Antonio da Zamora in Valladolid to issue this biography of King Alfonso XI. Even though the text was considered to be by Juan Nunez de Villazan, justiciary of Henrique II, he apparently … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lyon: Lugduni, apud Antonium Vincentium, 1551 [in fine:] Lugduni, excudebat Ioannes Frellonius, 1552. 12vo.; 21 hs., 891 pp., 13 hs., más 46 hojas finales para «Summae Virtutum ac Vitiorum per figuras». Encuadernación de época en pergamino con restos de cierres. Parte de un célebre texto medieval que circuló profusamente y que fue utilizado por el Dante, Chaucer y otros muchos, hasta el punto de que el mismo Juan de Gerson llegó a decir que si todos los libros del mundo desapareciesen de golpe y sólamente subsistiese la Summa de Peraldus la pérdida sería tolerable. Hay que hacer notar que la «Summa de Virtudes» no es un una obra de filosofía ni de teología especulativa, tampoco aparecen referencias a Aristóteles ni otros filósofos griegos. Peraldus utiliza principalmente a los estóicos latinos, Cicerón, Séneca o Macrobio, junto a la tradición bíblica cristiana y los escritos desde la Patrística a Bernardo de Claraval, incluyendo gran cantidad de materiales ilustrativos, citas, anécdotas y «exempla». La influencia de la «Summa» fue enorme y a nuestros días han llegado más de 300 manuscritos medievales de la misma y más de una docena de ediciones incunables y quinientistas.

SÉNECA, Lucio Anneo.
Trad. Alonso de Cartagena. Imp. Juan Steelsio (Jan Steels). Anvers, 1551 - . 14 cm. [16], 196 fol. (i. e. 188), 9 h. de índices, 3 h. (sign. A-Z8, 2A-D8). Marca tipográfica en portada y capitulares xilográficas. Texto con apostillas marginales. Error de paginación (de la 8 salta a la 17), pero texto completo. Enc. en pergamino, lomera rotulada. Marcas de anterior poseedor. * Según consta en la portada trata de: la vida bienaventurada; de las siete artes liberales; de los preceptos y doctrinas; y de la providencia de Dios. Las últimas tres hojas, tras el índice, contienen una de las cartas que Séneca escribió a Lucilio Balbo y que los editores decidieron publicar "porque no quedasse aqui carta blanca". La traducción es obra de Alonso de Santa María de Cartagena (1384-1456), que destacó en las "traslaciones en vernácula lengua", como las llamaba, de numerosos autores clásicos. Cartagena encara a la perfección el espíritu humanista y la voluntad de iluminar a los cortesanos con el saber clásico. Así, tradujo no sólo los Tratados y Tragedias de Séneca, sino también varias obras de Cicerón, y entabló una larga polémica con Leonardo Bruni de Aretino sobre una traducción a la Ética de Aristóteles.

Gesner, Conrad
Olms Verlag, Zürich . Reprint: Hildesheim 2012. Mit einer Einleitung herausgegeben von Olaf Breidbach. 1551 - 1264 S. Mit einer CD mit den handkolorierten Abbildungen der zugrundeliegenden Ausgabe. HISTORIA SCIENTIARUM Die hier als Reprint vorgelegten ersten beiden Bände der Naturgeschichte der Tiere des Züricher Arztes Conrad Gesner (1516-1565) gelten als die Schriften, die die moderne neuzeitliche Zoologie begründet haben. Erstmals wurde hier in einer umfassenden und hoch differenziert illustrierten Enzyklopädie der Tiere der seinerzeitige Wissensbestand zur Zoologie zusammengetragen und allgemein verfügbar gemacht. In der Grundanlage dieses Werkes wird deutlich, dass Gesner sich mit seinem Ansatz in der philologischen Tradition einer auf antiken Quellen aufgebauten Sicherung und Systematisierung von Wissensbeständen verankerte. Dabei suchte er aber auch eigene Beobachtungen zu integrieren und erweiterte den aus der Antike übermittelten Kenntnisstand beträchtlich. Er beschrieb etwa 800 Arten und Artgruppen von Tieren aus den verschiedensten Lebensräumen. Dies geschah auch mit Hilfe der Illustrationen, u. a. von Lucas Schan, Hans Asper und Johann Thomas. Auch Vorlagen aus anderen Werken wurden als Zeichnungsvorgaben benutzt, so z. B. Dürers Nashornillustration. Einige Darstellungen sind derart exakt, dass sie es erlauben, einzelne Arten allein auf Grund der bildlichen Darstellung zu identifizieren. Gesners ‚Historia Animalium‘ ist ein für sich stehendes Kompendium des Wissens über die Tiere, in dem sich das verfügbare zoologische Wissen detailliert und gut aufruf … [Click Below for Full Description]

(8), 645, (23) pp. The very rare and beautiful Froben-edition of Juvenal's famous Satires, noted for the learned scholia of Curio. "This edition, printed by one of Froben's sons, is noticed by Ruperti as containing the Scholia of Curio. Henninius, in his edition of 1685, more particularly discusses the Scholia of Curio, and the merits of Britannicus. This edition of 1551 is scarce." (Dibdin II:153). Graesse, III: 519.Juvenal's famous Satires (from around the end of the 1st till the beginning of the second century) constitute a number of famous and influential poems, all in the Roman genre of Satire, comprising a wide-ranging discussion of society and social ethics and moral. These poems came to play a great role in the Renaissance, when the genre was brought vividly to live by the Renaissance humanists, and the possibilities that came with the recently developed ease of printing greatly spread the fame of the work.

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..

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. Updike, Printing Types I, 23-8; Schreiber 126]

Recorded in Conrad Walther: Versuch.Militair=Bibliothek. 1783 p. 7 (x), and by Rumpf: Allg. Literatur d.

HORAPOLLO
Paris: Apud Iacobum Keruer, 1551. First edition thus. Octavo (pgs. 104 x 165 mm): [20], 240, [4]; complete with 195 woodcuts in the text, lacking initial blank. 17th century full calf, rebacked with some wear and loss at the corners. Label removed from the spine. Early ownership markings on the title page, crossed out. Internal contents generally clean and devoid of markings, but with the occasional spot of soiling or wear. This copy with the block print on F8 flipped, but with the print on G7 printed on the page. The first Kerver bi-lingual edition of an early work on hieroglyphics, printed in the form of an emblem book. The series of woodcuts first appeared in the 1543 French edition, with a few blocks redesigned for this edition. This work combines Philippus' Greek translation from the 1505 Aldine edition and likely Mercier's own translation into Latin, of a work attributed to Horapollo the 4th century AD Greek grammarian. A popular work on hieroglyphs during the sixteenth century that remained relevant due to the fantastic woodcut engravings that have been recognized for their artistic merit.

Acabose a quatro días del mes de enero año del nascimiento de nuestro señor Jesuchristo de mil y quinientos y cincuenta y un años 1551, en casa de Sebastián Martínez a la perrochia de Sant Andrés; en folio plena piel labrada con hilos en cantos, rueda dorada en contracantos y cortes tintados, firmada por Arias, Portada a dos tintas con retrato ecuestre grabado en madera, 186 folios. Texto enmarcado a dos columnas. Tipografía gótica de 48 líneas. Bellas capitulares grabadas. Palau nº 64896. Primera edición. Buen ejemplar muy limpio de este raro gótico castellano. Algunas hojas un poco cortas del margen inferior sin afectar. Es posible que, de acuerdo con la portada de la edición de Toledo de 1595, fuera escrita por Juan Núñez de Villasán, Oficial de León, Condestable de Castilla y favorito de Enrique II; pero algunas autoridades consideran que realmente fue sólo el copista. Parece ser obra de Fernán Sánchez de Valladolid.
