PETRARCH.
Lyons: Appresso Guglielmo Rouillio, 1551. Lyons: Appresso Guglielmo Rouillio,, 1551. 2 parts in 1 volume, as issued, sextodecimo in eights (121 x 71 mm). Contemporary vellum, manuscript title to spine, gilt gauffered edges. Title page devices and 7 other woodcuts. Early ownership signature "G Tho-" to front cover, 18th/19th-century annotations in Italian to front free endpaper and rear endpapers, a few minor early corrections to text. Vellum lightly soiled with small patch of insect damage to front cover, a little shaken with the binding loosening at the rear joint but all still holding, first signature loosening a little with some insect damage at head (not affecting text), general light browning, very faint running stains throughout first third of book. An attractive mid-16th-century edition of Petrarch's poetry, in a contemporary unrestored binding. Of particular interest in this copy is that a pious reader has inked out (though still clearly readable) the three Babylonian sonnets (here sonnets 105 to 107), banned by the papacy in 1595. The papal ban forbade printers from including these sonnets, and readers were required to remove them from their existing copies, here faithfully executed. The Church correctly saw the Babylonian sonnets as a contemporary criticism of the Avignon papacy, and the decadence of the papacy more generally. Rouillio's edition of Petrarch was first published in 1550, this edition differing only in the dedication to Giovanni Mannelli and in the addition of the privilege. The latter part of the book is Ridolfi's Rauola di tutte le sue rime, with … [Click Below for Full Description]

Premier livre mythique de cette série de 5 allant de 1551 à 1621. Ce premier volume concerne les quadripèdes et contient de nombreuses illustrations Ce livre a été numérisé et est entièrement visible sur le books google si vous voulez de plus amples informations. Concernant l'état: la reliure est fatiguée (468 années après!) mais l'intérieur est très frais et sans rousseurs. Bien sûr vous aurez quelques petites déchirures éparses SANS manque mais relativement peu nombreuses en rapport des plus de 1100 pages du volume. Format 37 x 24 cm ATTENTION: il manque la page 957 et sûrement la dernière du volume qui est la dernière page du lexique. Le livre est dans son jus et n'a pas été bidouillé. Les illustrations sont juste extraordinaires. J'ai essayé de mettre les plus représentatives en photos. L'envoi sera rapide et très bien protégé en recommandé après réception du paiement (chèque ou virement pas paypal en raison des frais). Vous enchérissez pour un livre de 1551 donc pas neuf sorti de l'imprimeur. Vous acceptez donc en conséquence les petits défauts mentionnés ci-dessus (photos et description). En conséquence, je n'accepterai pas de retour.

1551. Pliny the Younger. Caecilius Secundus Plinius. Epistles. C. Plinii Caecilii Secundi Novocomensis Epistolarum Libri Decem. Nunc quidem ab innumeris variorum exemplarum collation repurgati. [printer's device] Apud.Seb. Gryphium Lugduni, 1551. Octavo 464, [16] pages. Later vellum with chip on one corner, gilt-lettered spine-label, slightly chipped at edges. Some ink numbering in margins, much red pencil underlining, varying margin stains. Adams P1544. Besides the ten books of Pliny’s letters, this volume contains Pliny’s Panegyric on Trajan, his book on illustrious men, Suetonius Tranquillus on illustrious grammarians, Suetonius on clarity of speech, and Julius Obsequens Ab Anno Urbis Conditae Quingentesimoquinque (550) Prodigiorum Liber. This last work is called “imperfect” and indeed differs from the currently received text, at least in that names of some of the Consuls are omitted. Some of the prodigies involve shining discs moving through the sky, classical UFOs. The letters between Trajan and Pliny (Book 10) are of great interest because one exchange, where Pliny asks for advice about what to do about people accused of being Christians and Trajan tells him not to go out looking for possible Christians, but that he has to bring in for questioning anyone accused of being a Christian. If someone is denounced as Christian, Trajan saya to release them if they deny the accusation. This is one of the very few non-Christian sources about “normal” persecution. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hans LAUTENSACH (Bamberg, 1520 circa - Vienna, 1566)
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. Magnifico esemplare, appartenuto alla collezione Germanischen Nationalmuseums di Norinberga (Lugt 1076). Etching, 1551, without signature.

Anonimo
1551. Al centro, entro un cartiglio a forma di nastro svolazzante, il titolo: La Mirandola. In basso al centro, la firma dell'editore: Henricus van Schoel formis. Orientazione fornita ai lati dalle iniziali dei punti cardinali, il nord è a destra. Acquaforte e bulino. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "ancora nel cerchio con stella", con margini, tracce di colla al verso, per il resto in eccellente stato di conservazione. Veduta prospettica della città, anonima; rappresenta il secondo assedio della città, del 1551. Alleata della Francia, e per questo avversa a Roma, la cittadella fu assediata da papa Giulio III nel mese di luglio del 1551. Difficile stabilire la datazione della lastra, che potrebbe derivare dall'opera di Bartélémy Bonhomme (Lione, 1557) oppure esserne il modello Appare evidente il collegamento di questa lastra con quella raffigurante l'assedio di Parma del 1551, anch'essa anonima. Le due lastre, all'incirca di formato identico, sono ascrivibili - per evidenti motivi stilistici - alla stessa mano. Nessun esemplare noto di questa veduta è privo dell'indirizzo di Giovanni Orlandi (o di quello di Van Schoel). Benevolo (1969) asserisce che la carta sia un originale del Salamanca ristampato poi da Orlandi. Si può identificare questa lastra con quella inserita nel catalogo della vedova di Giacomo Gherardi, Quintilia Lucidi, del 17-19 ottobre 1598 (n. 44 descritta come "la mirandola" incisa al verso de "la Veronica"). Possiamo quindi supporre che la matrice sia stata acquisita da Antonio Lafreri ed ereditata da Claudio Duchetti e infin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Der schönen Insel und porten Rhodus verlust/ die Solimannus der Türckische Kaiser im M.D.XXII jar/ am hailigen weihenacht tag/ in seinen gwalt bracht. The Order of the Knights Hospitaller had participated in the crusades and in 1309 established itself on the island of Rhodes. The island had withstood Ottoman sieges in 1460 and 1480. In 1522 Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent dispatched a force. The fortress of Rhodes held out for several months; the island, however, proved untenable. Starved, Grand Master Philippe de Villiers surrendered 21 December 1522. On January 1523 the Knights withdrew. In 1530 Emperor Charles V. transferred the island of Malta to the Knights. Fontanus was a Flemish jurist, later judge of the appeal court in Rhodes and attaché to Giles Caoursin the vice-chancellor of Rhodes. Fontanus lived through the siege and capitulation, and was an eye-witness of such important events as the audience of the Sultan with the Grand Master of the Knights of Rhodes on the 26th and 29th of December (Blackmer p.133).
