Johannes Oporin, 1551. Due parti in un volume in 8vo, legatura coeva in piena pelle con impressioni a secco (piuttosto consunta, dorso danneggiato) pp. 188, cc. (2, di cui l'ultima bianca), pp. 90, cc. (15). Manca l'ultima carta bianca. Sul titolo firma di appartenenza del Collegio dei Gesuiti di Douai. Leggero alone nelle ultime carte.La prima edizione collettiva delle opere di Fabricius sulla topografia e le antichità di Roma era stata pubblicata da Oporino nel 1550.La prima parte è una vera e propria guida di Roma e contiene una dettagliata descrizione dei monumenti antichi. L'opera è dedicata al giovane nobiluomo Wolfgang von Werthern, al seguito del quale Fabricius aveva viaggiato per la penisola ed aveva visitato Roma tra il 1539 e il 1543. Nella prefazione l'autore elenca le fonti antiche da lui utilizzate e riconosce il suo debito nei confronti della Antiquae Romae topographia di Bartolomeo Marliani (1534).Roma rappresenta un'opera chiave nella storia dell'epigrafia classica, in quanto per la prima volta riconosce il fondamentale valore documentario di questi testi come fonte per la storia del diritto (cfr. W. Stenhouse, Georg Fabricius and inscriptions as a source of law, in: "Renaissance Studies", 17/1, 2003, pp. 96-107).La seconda parte, Itinerum liber unus, già pubblicata a Lipsia nel 1547, fu in seguito più volte modificata dall'autore, insoddisfatto di quella prima versione (cfr.

Clénard, Nicolaus
Leuven, (Reyner Velpius for) Martin Rotarius, 1551. 8vo. (166) pp., final blank f. With several Arabic interspersions in the text. Modern half calf with marbled covers, spine gilt with red label. All edges sprinkled in red. Second, significantly expanded edition of 24 travel letters by the Dutch educator and enthusiast of Arabic Nicolaes Cleynaerts (Clénard, 1493-1542), who visited Spain, Portugal and Morocco during the last years of his life, sending Latin letters "dated variously from 1535 to 1541" (Weber) to friends in his native Belgium: "He moved from Louvain to Salamanca and then to Fez (in 1540), so as to expand his knowledge of the Arabic language. In Granada he undertook a translation of the Qur'an. His letters to Latomus (1510-96) date from this time, when he was preoccupied with Qur'anic studies" (cf. Göllner I, p. 416); "his missives give a narrative of his journey to Morocco and provide critical commentaries on Islam" (cf. Göllner II, p. 18). Latomus's first collection, published in 1550, had comprised no more than 14 letters (while a "fragmentary publication" of Clénard's letters "concerned with the teaching of Latin" had appeared as early as 1546). "Notably the letters to Latomus of July 1539 and of April 1541 contain quotations in Arabic in a barely readable version of the original script" (Smitskamp, PO 248). Clénard had become acquainted with Islamic theology in Granada, learning Arabic from a local Moor, and endeavoured to familiarize Christianity and Islam with each other more closely. In Morocco he was welcomed by the Sultan, but his opposition to the s … [Click Below for Full Description]

NICOLAY, Nicolas de.
- Colas 2205; Mortimer (French) 386 note & (German) 319 note; cf. Atabey 870-872 (other eds). First issue of the rare first Dutch edition of Nicolay's observations when he accompanied the French King François I's 1551 embassy to Constantinople, with special attention to the costumes. The plates of the first (French) edition of 1567, designed by Nicolay himself, were "the first to represent the costume of the Near East in detail" (Mortimer). Nicolay, in 105 chapters arranged as four books, then describes the voyage and the lands and peoples seen, but the costumes of people from various regions, religions, occupations, social strata, etc., clearly fascinated him more than anything else. Many chapters are devoted to individual groups of people, and these are nearly always illustrated with one, two or even three full-page woodcuts showing their styles of costume. Slightly browned, some waterstains and dark patches, one plate damaged, the binding soiled. Overall still a good copy of a finely illustrated work on Near Eastern costumes.

APIANUS, Petrus.
Venice: Sabiensis, 1551. 16mo., several woodcut illustrations; contemporary vellum. A particularly attractive copy of one of the early editions of Apian's classic description of the earth and its context, in the popular shortened format. Apianus' hugely influential work on cosmography offered an early geographical text with numerous woodcuts of the earth, the Zodiac, and examples of determining longitude and latitude. The text neatly summarises the Renaissance world view, and includes several references to Amerigo Vespucci's discovery of America.The book is notable for 'the division of the earth into climatic zones, the uses of parallels and meridians, the determination of latitude, several methods for determining longitude including that of lunar distance, the use of trigonometry to determine distances, several types of map projections, and many other topics... ' (Karrow). Apianus owes much of his early work to the eminent Martin Waldseemuller, often making only minor changes to his maps and then publishing them as his own.Apianus' work in its full-length form was first published in 1524; it first appeared in this popular format in Antwerp in 1532 or 1533. This is one of about seven editions produced in Italy in the sixteenth century, all of them rare today.One of the most popular of all scientific books, over eighty-five years Apianus' text went through more than forty-five editions, in four languages, published in seven cities, by at least eighteen publishers. This popular version, with its text considerably shortened, contains a number of woodcut illustrations but not t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Michel Vascosan, 1551. ____ Seconde édition, identique à la première de 1550, un seul bois d'après Mortimer est différent. Ce traité décrit deux modèles d'astrolabe. Il est illustré de plus de 60 bois gravés, certains à pleine page. D'une famille castillane noble, Juan de Rojas suivit la cour de Charles-Quint dans les Flandres. Il fréquenta l'université de Louvain, où il suivit les cours de Gemma Frisius, qui devint par la suite son ami. Il se rendit célèbre dans toute l'Europe, en proposant une astrolabe qui utilisait une projection orthographique de la sphère céleste. Le livre V est un commentaire des écrits de Gemma Frisius sur l'astrolabe. Mortimer, Harvard calogue 462. Brun, Le livre français illustré de la Renaissance 283. Bon exemplaire. ***** Second edition, similar to the first of 1550. Rojas describes two new types of astrolabe that he developed using an orthographic projection of the celestial sphere. Illustrated by 60 woodcuts. "The chief novelty in both [astrolabes] consisted in a special treatment of the face of the instrument as an orthographic projection of the sphere on the plane of the meridian." (Gunther, Astrolabes of the World). "A scion of the Castilian nobility, Juan de Rojas moved to Flanders with the court of Emperor Charles V and studied with Reiner Gemma Frisius in Louvain. He became famous in Europe mainly thanks to the dissemination of a new type of astrolabe that he developed using an orthographic projection of the celestial sphere. The instrument was unveiled in 'Commentariorum in astrolabium', a widely circulated treatise published in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philoponus, Joannes
Venice: Heironymous Scotus, 1550-1551. Quarto. 75ff. Woodcut device on title page and last leaf, several geometrical text figures, two ten-line and two five-line initial capitals. A book of commentary by the sixth-century Greek philosopher Philoponus, who also went by the name John the Grammarian for his scholarship on language. Although the spread of his works was limited by his posthumous condemnation by the church, Philoponus's rejections of Aristotelian physics and his concept of inertia, which was decidedly ahead of his time, place him among the forefathers of modern science. This copy of Commentaria features a colorful binding of Italian block-printed decorated paper by Remondini, likely from the eighteenth century, and an unusual pastepaper spine. Front and back covers each bear two repeated illustrations of architectural landmarks within oval frames, and these are surrounded by floral designs. One of the illustrations shows the famous bridge at Bassano designed by the great sixteenth-century Italian architect Palladio; the other is likely a depiction of La Rotonda in Vicenza, also designed by Palladio. Both of these landmarks are located in Vicenza Province, where Remondini opened a paper factory in 1755, and it is probable that the other bridge and the aqueduct pictured are also local to that area. Slight wear to lower extremity and upper corners, worm holes to bottom interior margins affecting about two-thirds of the leaves to varying degrees, else fine and bright. Bookplate.

Le volume a été imprimé par Robert Massellin. - Charlotte Guillard (ca. 1485-1557), veuve de Berthold Rembolt, qui était associé d'Ulrich Gering, puis de Claude Chevallon, a poursuivi l'activité, à partir de 1537, du plus ancien atelier typographique français, le Soleil d'Or, rue Saint-Jacques. Sa carrière s'est étendue sur cinquante ans. Elle parvient à accaparer deux marchés spécifiques : les textes de droit savant et les ouvrages des Pères de l'Église. - Denys le Chartreux (Dionysius van Leeuw ou van Leeuwen), (Ryckel, comté de Looz 1402 - Ruremonde (Pays-Bas), 1471) est un religieux de l'ordre des Chartreux, mystique, théologien et écrivain spirituel de renom.

'While Valverde di Hamusco's Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano (1556) is often credited with introducing into Spain the Vesalian anatomical iconography coupled with a vernacular text, this honor actually belongs to Montana de Monserrate's Anothomia, whose twelve anatomical cuts included nine copies from either the Fabrica or the Epitome. These nine cuts, all of them reduced and simplified, included three Vesalian "musclemen", two plates representing the venous and arterial systems, two plates of the peripheral and central nervous systems, a figure combining Vesalian representations of the genito-urinary … [Click Below for Full Description]

JORIS, David.
1551. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]
