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
1551. 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 1551–1559, sometimes known as the Habsburg–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 Hab­sburgs 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 coun­teroffensive. Through his intervention in Tuscany, Henry II gained a foothold in c … [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.

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».

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.

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. - VD 16, S 6574.

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.
