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. Additional images available upon request.

Padre que fue del rey don Pedro.- Al fin, Fue impressa la presente chronica en la insigne y muy nombrada villa de Valladolid a costa de Pedro de Espinosa mercader de libros vezino de la villa de Medina del Campo, y de Antonio de Zamora vezino del la villa de Valadolid. 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.

Astutie militari di Sesto Ivlio Frontino huomo consolare, di Li Famosi et eccellenti Capitani Romani, Greci, Barbari, & Hesterni. In Venetia (Venedig), Per Comin de Trino, 1541. 144 pp. With wood-cut initials. Printers wood-engr. device on title. ¶ Aelian was a Greek military writer of the 2nd century A.D., resident in Rome. His military treatise is dedicated to Hadrian. It is a handbook of Greek, i.e. Macedonian, drill and tactics as practised by the Hellenistic successors of Alexander the Great. The work exercised a great influence. The translations made in the 16th century formed the groundwork of numerous books on drill and tactics. The first edition of the Greek text was issued by Robortelli in Venice 1552 - the Italian edition as here a year before.

(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.
