MANILIUS, Marcus
1551 Astronomicon Manilius Ancient Rome Astrology Occult Astronomy Zodiac 2in1 Marcus Manilius was a first century Roman poet known for his famous collection of astrological poetry ‘Astronomica.’ This book is thought to be the first extensive work on astronomy and astrology – it describes various celestial phenomena and goes into great detail on the zodiac. It also considers many of the celestial theories proposed by Xenophanes and Hesiod and their perceptions of creation. Other topics of discussion include formation of constellations, placement of sun and moon, emphasis on the Milky Way, exploration of comets and meteors as an omen for earthly disasters and plagues. This exceedingly rare 1551 edition was published in Lyon by Tournes and was edited by Antoine du Moulin an important French poet and translator. He was the first translator for Jean de Tournes publishing and his translation of Ancient Greek and Roman texts were used for centuries following the mid-1500s. This edition was published the same year that Moulin died. This book is bound with ‘De Memoria Reparanda’ by Italian physician Guglielmo Grataroli; a short essay on medical remedies, and the influence of behavior of health.

Simplicius.
1551. Folio (222 x 328 mm). (6), "211" [= 111], (1) f. With woodcut printer's device on t. p. (repeated on final leaf) and woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary full calf. Rare edition of Simplicius's commentaries on the Categories of Aristotle, annotated throughout by a contemporary humanist in Greek (and occasionally in Latin). Edited by Justus Velsius (Joost Welsens, ca. 1501-after 1581), a colourful and disputatious Dutch Renaissance scholar who entangled himself in controversy wherever he moved throughout western Europe. A friend of Vesalius, he had been made professor of philosophy and Greek at Cologne in 1550 but had to relinquish his post at the end of 1554 after having been accused of heresy. - The Latin annotations are mostly executed in an appealing, unusually careful humanist lettering, while those in Greek - frequently limited to a single catchword or phrase indexing the text in the margin, but sometimes running to notes of several lines - are in a fluid script replete with ligatures. Binding somewhat rubbed at extremeties, but well preserved. Occasional browning; very light fingerstaining to title page; in all a beautiful copy of this very scarce edition: the last copy known to have been offered in the trade was that described in Goldschmidt's catalogue 93 (1951), as part of a sammelband of Simplicius's commentaries on Aristotle. VD 16, S 6574. BM-STC German 817. Adams S 1205. Schweiger I, 288. Hoffmann III, 405. Ebert 21275. Not in Schmitt.

PORZIO, Simone (1497-1554)-GELLI, Giovanni Battista tr. (1498-1563)
Firenze, Lorenzo Torrentino. In 8vo (mm 149x103). Pagine 52, [4]. Segnatura: A-C8D4. Capilettera ornati incisi in legno. Lievissime fioriture occasionali e alcune macchie marginali, ma ottima copia. Legatura del XX secolo in cartonato, piatti ricoperti da carta marmorizzata, titolo impresso in oro su tassello in pergamena al dorso. Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris inciso di Francisco Bracchini. Nota manoscritti alla p. 50, qualche sottolineatura in inchiostro bruno. Rara prima edizione, stampata senza dati editoriali ma da attribuirsi al tipografo Lorenzo Torrentino, del volgarizzamento, ad opera di Giovann Battista Gelli, di questo opuscolo redatto intorno al 1542 dal medico e filosofo napoletano Simone Porzio, ma apparso per la prima volta solo nel 1551, presso i torchi del Torrentino, con il titolo De puella germanica, quae fere biennium vixerat sine cibo, potuque. L'operetta narra del fatto prodigioso, avvenuto intorno al 1542 vicino a Spira, di una ragazza tedesca anoressica di nome Margarete Weiss, che rimase senza mangiare né bere per oltre due anni. Porzio cerca di spiegare da un punto di vista medico come questo sia stato possibile, concludendo che la natura flemmatica e la frigidità della ragazza, unitamente agli umori crudi, hanno reso la cosa possibile. La ragazza era stata mostrata in pubblico durante la Dieta di Speyer del 1542 e poi affidata al medico Gerhard Bucholtz, il quale poche settimane dopo stilò un rapporto che attestò il carattere non finto dell'inedia (cfr. D. Castelli, Simone Porzio e il "De puella Germanica": l' "inedia' mirabile di una fanciu … [Click Below for Full Description]

In contemporary limp vellum, visible ties, damaged headcap with vellum fragment torn away, remains of laces. First edition of this important collection of orations. The ancestor of the Roman historian Cassius Dio (155-235 BC), Dio Chrysostomus was a Greek historian and man of letters born in Prusa (now Bursa), Bithynia (now a part of Turkey), in 40 BCE within in a powerful and rich family. He died in ca. 115. His nickname was Chysostomus, literally “golden-mouthed”, by virtue of his eloquence. He became a Roman citizen earning the surname of Cocceianus after his connection with Marcus Cocceius Nerva, the famous Emperor, whose family offered him patronage. The orator Philistratus (170-247 BC) is our main source on Dio’s life and career. In his Lives of the Sophists, he referred to Dio as a sophist, a master of language, skilled in the art of rhetoric and philosophy.

[Ahmet Ibn Sirin].
1551. 8vo. 62, (2) ff. With wodcut printer's device on title page. Contemporary limp vellum with later giltstamped orange spine label and ms. spine title. Very rare Italian edition of the "Kitab al-Jawami", an Arabic work on the interpretation of dreams by an "Achmet, son of Seirim" - almost certainly identical with the 8th century Muslim mystic Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Sirin. The work survived in a Greek translation ("Biblion oneirokritikon") prepared in the 12th century. "The author Ahmed served as interpreter of dreams to Caliph Al-Mamun around 820 [...] The mediaeval conflation of medicine with astrology originated with the Arabs. Through the Salernitanian school, which had many Arabic works translated, the notion reached Europe in the 11th century, where it remained predominant as late as the 17th and 18th century [...] In 1577 J. Loewenklau published a Latin translation of the Oneirokritiká of Ahmed, whom he calls Apomasar" (cf. Schöll). - Slight waterstaining and old ink ownerships and annotations to title page.

ALEXANDER AB ALEXANDRO.
excudebat Iaspar Gennepaeus, 1551. Cm. 31, pp. (80) 370. Bel frontespizio figurato, capolettera e testatine istoriate. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena flosciacon titoli ms. al dorso. Esemplare genuino e ben conservato e di rimarchevole bellezza tipografica. Alessandro Alessandri (1461?-1523?), giureconsulto napoletano, si rese celebre grazie a quest'opera avulsa da una dottrina strettamente giuridica. Fu allievo di F. Filelfo e del Calderino ed esercitò precocemente la professione d'avvocato per poi rinunciarvi disgustato, riportano le biografie, più dall'iniquità dei giudizi che dalla difficoltà della scienza della legge. Questa è infatti un'opera d'erudizione e di filologia strutturata sui modelli delle opere di Aulo Gellio e Giovanni di Salisbury. Vanno menzionati infine i dotti commentari che ne scaturirono a cura del Tiraqueau e di Dionigi Gotofredo stampati nella seconda metà del Cinquecento.

King Henry II
He encourages them to stop “all infighting and division from which will follow the perpetual tranquility of your republic to the shame and confusion of those would tyrannize and oppress”A very rare and important letter of the French King The Eighth Italian War of 1551â€"1559, sometimes known as the Habsburgâ€"Valois War, began when King Henry II of France declared war against Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who was King of Austria and Spain, with the intent of recapturing Charles’ holdings in Italy and ensuring French, rather than Habsburg, domination of European affairs. Persecution of Protestants at home did not prevent Henry II from becoming allied with German Protestant princes, which he did at the Treaty of Chambord in 1552. Simultaneously, the continuation of his father's Franco-Ottoman alliance allowed Henry II to push for French conquests eastward towards the Rhine while a Franco-Ottoman fleet defended southern France. An early offensive into Lorraine was successful. Henry captured the three episcopal cities of Metz, Toul, and Verdun, and secured them by defeating the Habsburg army at the Battle of Renty in 1554.While Henry II was occupied with the campaign in Flanders, the war against the HabÂsburgs was renewed in Italy. When the city of Siena in Tuscany rebelled against Habsburg occupation and established an independent republic, Henry provided financial and military support to the new regime, sending troops to buttress the city's defenses against an imperial counÂteroffensive. Through his intervention in Tuscany, Henry II gained a foothold in central Italy fo … [Click Below for Full Description]

JUVENALIS, (Decimus Junius)
1551 Juvenal & Persius SATIRES Froben HUGE FOLIOS Curio Stoic Philosophy ROME “Many commit the same crime with a very different result. One bears a cross for his crime; another a crown.” Juvenal, The Satires A rare 1551 printing of ‘The Satires’ of Juvenal and Persius printed by Froben. This collection of satirical poetry was written in the late 1st and 2nd centuries. These satires discuss society, social norms, irony, each of these providing insight to the morals and values of Roman life at the time. Juvenal outlines many of the concerns he has with Roman citizens including unfaithfulness and greed; issues he recognized as downfalls to society. This edition features the commentary of numerous 16th-century scholars including Britannico, Baden, and Plautius. However, the most notable name to contribute to this edition was Curio. According to Dibdin, “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.” Item number: #2524 Price: $2500 JUVENALIS, (Decimus Junius) Ivnii Ivvenalis, et A.

LEOWITZ (or KARASEK), Cyprian.
Diagrams showing eclipses and celestial positions in the format of astrological squares. [346] leaves (author's name crossed out on title). 4to. Contemporary vellum. Augsburg, Philip Ulhard, October 1551. First edition of a little known work by Cyprian Leowitz (1524-1574). The celebrated Bohemian astronomer was professor of astronomy and appointed mathematician to Elector Palatine Otho Henry (German: Ottheinrich, 1502-1559) and acquired a high reputation at the time of the reception of the Copernican theory. Leowitz played a central role in facilitating conjunctionist theory, and the actual contents of the "Tabulae" are in line with those by Stöffler. From the end of the 15th century onwards many editions of the tables of Regiomontanus were produced with commentaries and additions, i.e. by Erasmsus Reinhold, Luca Gaurico, Leowitz (with participation of Melanchthon), etc. The present huge work by Ciprian Leowitz appeared without introduction and without explanation. It contains so-called position plates for the places from the 33rd to the 60th latitude, the pole height of the places (gradus latitudinis). A final short "secundes pars" with plates up to the 66th latitude appeared in November 1551 and is not present here. "Position" is not be taken here in the sense of modern astronomy. It is well known that the cosmological elements of the Copernican theory was not widely accepted for a long time after the publication of the "De Revolutionibus" (see Burmeister, Magister Rhecicus, 2015). A current subject of investigation is the variety in response to the theory in the various … [Click Below for Full Description]

Doni, Antonio Francesco
A celebrated literary work in Spain, in its first Spanish edition. 1551. Venice. F. Marcolini. In 8vo (155 mm x 100 mm). 166 ff. + 5 ff. Nineteenth century calf, very worn. Slight spotting and browning, somewhat heavier to first and last leaf, partly trimmed some loss to title border and pagination in places. 2,600 $ First edition in Spanish, published the same year as the first, in Italian. The architectural border of the title is from a model by Lorenzo Torrentino, and copies after the Italian original, published the same year and by the same printed. The translation into Spanish was prepared by Fortunato de Martiniengo, and is dedicated to Juan Bautista de Divicio. Doni (1513 – 1574) was an Italian writer and editor, son to a hairdresser, who began his career as a Friar, clearly restless and more interested in a secular life, Doni moved to Piacenza and later to Rome and Florence, beginning his new career, and experimenting as printer for a short period of time (1546-1548), accusations of poorly printed books and not properly authorised ended his enterprise. The work mixes jokes, stories, tales and proverbs. His numerous literary works were curiously more celebrated in Spain than in his home country, inspiring Francisco de Quevedo, Velez de Guevara, and others. Mortimer 164. Palau 75565.

Esemplare in ottime condizioni, molto fresco, con buoni margini. Pregevole raccolta di uno dei maggiori poeti veneti del XVI secolo, grande amico di Bembo, che lo portò con sé a Roma, e stimato da personalità come Castiglione e Ariosto, in particolare per le sue rime in volgare, preferite a quelle in latino. Ariosto arrivò a citarlo nell’ultimo canto del «Furioso» (XLVI, 15), inserendolo tra i personaggi celebri che attendono il poeta al suo arrivo in porto, nello stesso dittico in cui appare Tasso: «Io veggo il Fracastorio, il Bevazano, / Trifon Gabriele, e il Tasso più lontano». Le «Lachrymae» in morte del Bembo sono in edizione originale (al colophon: In Vinegia: appresso Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, 1543), e così anche il carme «ad Franciscum Donatum». Ciacuna opera presenta il proprio frontespizio con marca editoriale di Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari raffigurante una fenice sulle fiamme che si sprigionano da un’anfora retta da due satiri con iniziali GGF.

Il manoscritto dell'appendice sulle isole, conservato presso il convento bolognese di San Domenico, fu ottenuto da Ludovico degli Avanzi, che lo stampò per la prima volta nel 1561.

Diese Anstalt sollte später in ein Gemeinwesen mit kollektivem Eigentum überführt werden. Ausgehend von den Ideen Rousseaus forderte Ziegenhagen, das rechte Verhältnis der Dinge wiederherzustellen, um gut und glücklich zu leben. Chodowieckis wunderbares großes Faltkupfer - "eine besonders interessante und lustige großformatige gefaltete Tafel" (Lanck.Oehler) - zeigt das Ideal einer solchen Anlage. 1788 kaufte Ziegenhagen in Billwerder bei Hamburg ein landwirtschaftliches Gut, um eine solche Institution zu begründen, die exemplarisch seine Ideen vom Gemeineigentum, dem Gedanken des Kollektivs und sozialer Sicherheit praktizieren sollte.

Simplicius.
1551. Folio (222 x 328 mm). (6), "211" [= 111], (1) f. With woodcut printer's device on t. p. (repeated on final leaf) and woodcut diagrams in the text. Contemporary full calf. Rare edition of Simplicius's commentaries on the Categories of Aristotle, annotated throughout by a contemporary humanist in Greek (and occasionally in Latin). Edited by Justus Velsius (Joost Welsens, ca. 1501-after 1581), a colourful and disputatious Dutch Renaissance scholar who entangled himself in controversy wherever he moved throughout western Europe. A friend of Vesalius, he had been made professor of philosophy and Greek at Cologne in 1550 but had to relinquish his post at the end of 1554 after having been accused of heresy. - The Latin annotations are mostly executed in an appealing, unusually careful humanist lettering, while those in Greek - frequently limited to a single catchword or phrase indexing the text in the margin, but sometimes running to notes of several lines - are in a fluid script replete with ligatures. Binding somewhat rubbed at extremeties, but well preserved. Occasional browning; very light fingerstaining to title page; in all a beautiful copy of this very scarce edition: the last copy known to have been offered in the trade was that described in Goldschmidt's catalogue 93 (1951), as part of a sammelband of Simplicius's commentaries on Aristotle.
