Simplicius.
Basel, Michael Isengrin, (1 March) 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.

JORIS, David.
Van der Linde 57; Typ. Bat. 5643; Bainton, David Joris, pp. 71-73; for the bride of Christ engraving: Hollstein LXX, pp. 214-217, no. 38. Second edition of David Joris's famous Wonderboeck (Book of miracles), extensively revised and enlarged by the author in 1551 but not printed until almost thirty years after his death. One of the most important and most extensive works of the well-known Dutch Anabaptist David Joris, it was revered like a Bible by his followers. The present second edition was not only extensively revised and expanded but also took on a new graphic form, Dutch textura types rather than the German fraktur, rotunda and schwabacher types of the first edition, and most of the larger woodcuts were replaced by engravings made for this edition. The stunning full-page bride of Christ by Hieronymus Wierix, a nude female figure, winged and crowned with a sword and a heart in her hands and two captive serpants and a skeleton at her feet, is a high point of the engraver's art. Lacking 2 leaves, each containing only an illustration, and with a small piece of the foot margin of the title-page cut out and patched to remove most of a library stamp. Leaves +2-+9 slightly shorter and possibly sophisticated (but from the same edition) and a few preliminary leaves with damage in the gutter margin. Otherwise a good copy, with a few marginal waterstains. Second and best edition of a central work in the history of Dutch Anabaptists.

Very good and well preserved copies, first and last volumes a bit browned at the corners with some repair at edges, title-page to last restored, some old staining from damp to margins of Vols 15 and 16. AN ABSOLUTELY REMARKABLE COLLECTION. The various parts were printed over a number of years between 1538 and 1557 and "Possibly because some sessions of Henry VIII's reign were always in stock, Berthelet and his successors --T. Powell and T. Marsh-- preferred to continue printing them individually with 9303.4 functioning as general title-page and table..." (STC I420). It is highly unusual now to find all the parts together. (All of ours are printed by Berthelet except 3 by Powell). As expected, the king's marital instability and issues concerning the succession spawned an excessive quantity of paperwork: There are Acts relating to the divo … [Click Below for Full Description]

EUCLID
apud Vascosamum. FIRST EDITION thus. 4to, ff. (xviii) 140. Theorems in Roman letter, explanations in Italic, a little Greek, printed diagrams illustrating text throughout . Contemporary autograph of repeated and partially inked or written over on t.p. (one dated 1551) and inside rear corver, C19 armorial blind-stamp of double horse shoes surmounted by plumed helmets with motto 'Je maintiendrai' on second f.e.p., autograph of Sir Rowland Hill (1795-1879) on fly, C19 armorial bookplate inside front cover. Light waterstain to lower blank margins of first few gatherings, slight age yellowing, a good, clean copy in contemporary limp vellum, lacking ties, in 1/4 morocco folding box. First edition of Pierre de Montdoré's translation and commentary on the tenth book of Euclid's elements, dedicated to the Cardinal du Bellay. In his 36 page preface Montdoré explains that whilst the earlier books of Euclidian geometry are relatively easy for students, the tenth is considerably more complex - the book of 'irrational magnitudes' - based on Archimedes' 'method of exhaustion'. Its main achievements are the classification of irrational straight lines, making for much easier reference and the calculation of complex areas by a primitive form of integral calculus. Montdoré systematically explains these by reference to the earlier books and to other authors, especially Proclus. In his preface he fulsomely praises the work of Pythagoras but is scathingly dismissive of Ramus (named in contemporary ms) whose Latin version of the Elements had appeared in 1545. Montdoré (b. 1570), poet, mathematici … [Click Below for Full Description]

Conti, Natale.
[colophon:] Apud Aldi filios, 1551. Sole Aldine edition of Conti's four-part poem on => hunting and also the first edition overall; it enjoyed considerable success during the author's lifetime (1520-82) and was incorporated in many editions of his Mythologiae (first edition, 1567). The five pages of the final four leaves contain the scholia of the polymath Girolamo Ruscelli (c.1500-66), who was also a versifier of talent. Conti, a Humanist and historian, is now best remembered as a mythographer who believed that the Classical presenters of myths meant them to be read as allegory. Binding: 19th-century crushed midnight blue morocco, round spine with four raised bands forming five spine compartments, four of which are further defined by a single gilt rule on four sides and have each a gilt floral device in the center; each band accented with gilt beading. Author and title gilt in the fifth compartment and at base of bottom compartment, in gilt, place and date of publication. Both boards with a simple gilt triple-fillet border, board edges with a single gilt fillet, turn-ins gilt-tooled with an intricate roll. Endpapers of a French combed-up pattern. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. Renouard opines: "Mince volume devenu rare."

Quelques annottaions anciennes à l'encre brune, qq. rousseurs et mouillures. Edition inconnue des bibliographes. Adams, Rawles et Saunders n'ont pu localiser aucun exemplaire complet de la même édition à la date de 1552 à l'adresse de G. Rouillé, qui partageait le privilège avec Matthieu Bonhomme. L'exemplaire répertorié à l'adresse de G. Rouillé est aujourd'hui détruit. Cette édition comprend les 211 emblèmes déjà présents dans l'édition de 1550, mais, sans les encadrements historiés et sans commentaire. Ils sont rangés dans l'ordre déterminé par Barthélemy Aneau depuis l'édition de 1549. Cette suite de figures est traditionnellement attribuée à Pierre Vase par Baudrier et Brun. Publiés pour la première fois en 1531, les Emblèmes d'Alciat, petit livret d'épigrammes néo-latines accompagné d'images symboliques, donna naissance à un genre qui fut très en vogue aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles. Plusieurs centaines de livres d'empblèmes furent publiés durant cette période. Adams, Rawles et Saunders, F033 (à l'adresse de G.
