         Transsylvania XXI Nova Tabula

      1552 - Date: 1552 (Published) Basel Dimensions: 12 x 14.75 inches (30.1 cm x 37.5 cm) This marvelous and scarce Munster woodcut is the earliest obtainable map to specifically depict Transylvania. It is based on the 1530 map by Rumanian cartographer Johannes Honterus. This attractive woodblock map covers the region of present-day Romania which at the time was the heartland of the Saxon community in southern Transylvania. This example is from the rare 1552 edition of Munster’s Geographia, the only one to feature coordinate bars at top and bottom. The map depicts the cities, rivers and forests of the vast area, and extends from Moldavia to Bulgaria in the east. The map’s western border lies within the boundaries of modern-day Romania. At the time Munster made his map of Transylvania and its Alps, the Carpathians, the area was part of the Ottoman Empire under the rule of one its greatest Sultans, Suleiman the Magnificent. The region was semi-autonomic, and according to Ottoman custom its reigning princes (Hungarian) were only required to pay tribute to the Ottomans in order to be left in relative peace. At the same time Ivan Grozny (the Terrible) ruled all of Russia, having finally wrested power from the grandson of Genghis Khan, the last Khan, and bringing an end to the rule of the Golden Horde. Henry VI of the House of Lancaster ruled over England at this time, when most of its territories in France were lost. Though much of Europe was in flux when Munster made this map, it was also a time which saw the rise of the West, as European explorers set out to expand the borders of the known and mapped world. Munster and his maps played an important role in the expansionism of the time. This example is from the rare 1552 edition of Munster’s Geographia, the only one to feature coordinate bars provided at top and bottom. A large distance scale is at bottom and the title is in the top margin. This map only appears in a few editions of Munster's Cosmographia, and is therefore uncommon. On the verso, Latin text describing the map is bordered by a decorative cartouche. Sebastian Münster (20th January 1488 - 26th May 1552) was a German cartographer, cosmographer, and theologian. A gifted scholar of Hebraic he was appointed to the University of Basel in 1529, and published a number of works in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. His most celebrated works are his Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia in 1540, and the Cosmographia in 1544. The Cosmographia was the earliest German description of the world, an ambitious work of 6 volumes published in numerous editions in German, Latin, French, Italian, and Czech. Condition: This hand colored map is in B condition with slight toning at the centerfold. Worm damage and minor separation at the centerfold have been repaired with archival material on the verso.

         La moral filosophia del Doni, tratta da gli antichi scrittori - Trattati diversi di Sendebar indiano filosopho morale.

      Per Francesco Marcolini - Nell'Accademia Peregrina, 1552. Edizione originale, non comune, in esemplare completo. L'Opera consiste nella traduzione di un testo che aveva misteriosamente attraversato il mondo allora conosciuto ed era circondato da un alone di leggenda: il Pancatantra, raccolta indiana di novelle, in seguito tradotta in lingua "persica, arabica, ebrea, latina, spagnola", come opportunamente segnalato dal Doni nella nota ai lettori. Protagonista della Moral filosophia, ambientata in una maccheronica terra d'Oriente, diviene il Mulo; in veste di interlocutori dei Trattati si fronteggiano Francesco Sforza e maestro Dino, alias il Doni, impegnati a disquisire in terra nostrana. L'argomento è dunque quanto mai nelle corde del Doni, che ne approfitta per radicalizzare la propria posizione anti-cortigiana auspicando al contempo, attraverso la punizione del Mulo, il trionfo di Verità e Virtù. Avvertimento ai Lettori al retro del primo frontespizio. Segue Lettera dedicatoria a Don Ferrante Caracciolo e Tavola delle materie. Tre Libri con proprio frontespizio (il primo con sentenza in greco: "La sapienza di questo mondo è stoltezza presso Dio", tratta dalla Prima lettera ai Corinzi di San Paolo) e numerazione continua. Ritratto di Francesco Marcolini e dell'Aretino rispettivamente a carta I4v e Q4r. Segue: Trattati diversi di Sendebar indiano filosopho morale. Allo Illustriss. et Eccellentiss. S. Cosimo De Medici dedicati. Proprio frontespizio e numerazione. Due diverse marche editoriali entro cornice xilografata alle carte n4v e o4v. Belle xilografie nel testo entro cornice tra le quali il famoso Gambero Marino cavalcato dal Buffone (unica senza cornice), frontespizi fregi e iniziali ornati. Due Ex-libris al contropiatto. Note e sottolineature coeve ad inchiostro e lievi segni del tempo ma bell'esemplare totalmente coevo. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena floscia, nervetti delle cuffie passanti ai piatti, pp. 8, 152 - 103, 9, In 8°

Max. Conventus & gymnasij Bononiensis regentis ac moderatoris, & deinde totius dicti ordinis Magistri generalis illustrata: mendis sane quamplurimis passim diligenter & accurate repurgata

      apud Ioannem Foucherium, Parisiis 1552 - In-folio (345x240mm), ff. (18), 502, solida legatura posteriore piena pergamena con unghie e titolo manoscritto in antico al piatto anteriore e al dorso. Marca tipografica in xilografia al titolo. Al margine inferiore del secondo foglio preliminare e dei ff. 1 e 502, bello stemma cardinalizio miniato a mano. Piccola macchia d'inchiostro ed antico ex-libris manoscritto sul frontespizio, qualche lieve alone d'umido all'inizio ed in fine, angolo inferiore dell'ultimo foglio rifatto. Piccolo foto alla c. 239 e alla c. 425 (con minima perdita di alcune lettere di testo). Bell'esemplare di importante provenienza cardinalizia. Composta tra il 1269 e il 1273 circa (secondo altri tra il 1255 e il 1264), la Summa contra Gentiles è, dopo la Summa Theologiae, la più importante opera dell'Aquinate e compendia l'intera architettura filosofica tomistica difendendo il cristianesimo dalle dottrine eretiche, dal giudaismo, dall'Islam e dal paganesimo (da cui il titolo), e situandosi come una delle produzioni più alte dell'umanesimo medievale. Opera fondamentale. scritta in Italia tra il 1255 e il 1264, in cui ci viene presentato l'intero sistema filosofico tomistico. Il problema centrale dell'opera è quello di Dio. Oltre al contenuto filosofico la Summa contra Gentiles ha anche uno scopo prettamente polemico, così come è indicato dal titolo: lo scopo di difendere la verità cristiana contro tutte le concezioni erronee intorno a Dio, alla creazione, all'anima umana, alla rivelazione e alla vita futura, concezioni contenute principalmente negli scritti dei filosofi arabi e giudei (Enzo Paci in Dizionario Bompiani delle Opere, VI, pp. 835-836).

         P. Francisci Modesti Saludeciensis canonici arimini. De opificio dei opusculum.

      Rimini (Impress. in Inclyta urbe Arimino): in Officina Erasmi Virginei, 1552 [Iulli. III. Pont. Max. Anno. III.]. 4to (19.4 cm; 7.625"). 16 ff. Dominican writer and later Archbishop of Saludecio's unfinished rhyming poem and numerous other poems dedicated to Pope Julius III, here taken from the larger collection of miscellaneous works titled Publii Francisci Modesti Saludeciensis canonici Arimini Christiana pietas. Ejusdem, de Dei opificio sesquiliber. Ejusdem, urbis Arimini elogium. Ejusdem, Lucerna. Modesti (1471–1557) is perhaps best known for his history of Venice titled Venetias.    This poem celebrating the works of God in the Creation is written in dactylic hexameter and employs much classical vocabulary, while at the same time showing the influence of liturgical Latin — not an uncommon stylistic combination at that time. The text is printed in roman with guide letters and the pages are lightly ruled in red; the title-page displays Pope Julius III's coat of arms surrounded by a Latin epigram.    Provenance: Charles Spencer, Third Earl of Sunderland, lot 8539 in the Sunderland Library sale (1882). Embossed stamp of the Theological Institute of Connecticut on final leaf; deaccessioned to Pitts Theological Library at Emory; deaccessioned again 1998; later in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel (“AHA”) at rear.    Searches of COPAC, OCLC, and the NUC reveal => no U.S. libraries holding this fragment or the larger work.         EDIT16 CNCE 40108. Modern boards covered in a 16th-century leaf of Eusebius with text in Latin and Greek; gilt black leather spine label with misdate of 1521, new endpapers. Moderate age-toning with a handful of stains, provenance markings as above.

         Divi Bernardi religiosissimi ecclesiae doctoris ac primi Clarevallensis coenobij abbatis Opera quae quidem colligi undequaque in hunc usque diem potuere omnia [...]

      Basileae [Basel]: per Ioannem Hervagium [Erwagen], 1552. Due volumi,  [12] pagine, 1678 colonne; [14] pagine, 1057 colonne, [25] pagine. 37x27 cm. Bella rilegatura settecentesca in piena pelle con titoli ed impressioni in oro sui dorsi, con alcune mancanze ed abrasioni. Nome di antico proprietario, impresso in oro, sul piatto anteriore di entrambi i volumi. Leggermente brunito l'interno. Nel primo volume, due note a penna, datate 1938, sul foglio di sguardia e sul frontespizio; nota manoscritta, datata 1720, sul frontespizio; leggero tratto a matita blu sull'ultima pagina dell'indice e alcune sottolineature con segni a margine sulla prima pagina del trattato. Lieve alone presso il margine interno delle prime carte del secondo volume. [M211] Rara edizione cinquecentesca delle opere di uno dei massimi pensatori della storia della Chiesa. Bernardo di Chiaravalle, in latino Bernardus Claraevallensis, in francese Bernard de Clairvaux, (Fontaine-lès-Dijon 1090 - Clairvaux 1153),  abate francese dell'ordine cistercense, fondatore della celebre abbazia di Clairvaux (Chiaravalle) e di numerosi altri monasteri. Strenuo difensore della regola monastica benedettina, per tutta la sua vita fu fulgido esempio di rettitudine morale. A tal proposito sono famose le sue controversie contro Simone di Noyo, Enrico di Losanna e, su tutte, contro Pietro Abelardo. La sua regola ispirò anche la nascita dell'Ordine dei Templari. Su incarico di Papa Eugenio III  predicò a favore della seconda crociata che si stava preparando, e che avrebbe dovuto essere composta soprattutto da francesi, ma Bernardo riuscì a coinvolgere anche i tedeschi. La crociata fu un completo fallimento che Bernardo ascrisse, nel suo trattato La considerazione, ai peccati dei crociati. Viene venerato come santo da Cattolici, Anglicani e Luterani. Fu canonizzato nel 1174 da Papa Alessandro III e dichiarato Dottore della Chiesa, nel 1830, da Papa Pio VIII. Nel 1953 Papa Pio XII gli dedicò l'enciclica "Doctor Mellifluus" (colui che ha fatto scorrere il miele delle scritture): "Il dottore mellifluo ultimo dei padri, ma non certo inferiore ai primi, si segnalò per tali doti di mente e di animo, cui Dio aggiunse abbondanza di doni celesti, da apparire dominatore sovrano nelle molteplici e troppo spesso turbolente vicende della sua epoca, per santità, saggezza e somma prudenza, consiglio nell'agire".

      Artist: Speed John ( - 1629) London; issued in: ; date: ca 1620 1552 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Right lower corner perfectly replaced, minor margin tears perfectly resored; - size (in cm): 37 x 50; - description: Map shows the county of Norfolk with beautiful coat of arms, a representation of the battle in Norfolk 1381 and a total view of Norwiche; -vita of the artist: John Speed was an English cartographer and historian. He is known as England's most famous Stuart period mapmaker. It was with the encouragement of William Camden that Speed began his Historie of Great Britaine, which was published in 1611. Although he probably had access to historical sources that are now lost to us, his work as a historian is considered mediocre and secondary in importance to his map-making, of which his most important contribution is probably his town plans, many of which provide the first visual record of the British towns they depict. Much of the engraving was done in Amsterdam at the workshop of Jodocus Hondius. His maps of English counties are often found framed in homes throughout the United Kingdom.

         Historia della guerra fatta da principi christiani, contra Saracini per l'acquisito di terra Santa, tradotta per M. Francesco Baldelli. Florence, [Lorenzo Torrentino],

      1552 - Torrentino's device on title-page, historiated woodcut initials. 8vo (175 x 115mm). 272pp. 19th century vellum-backed marbled boards, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco label. First edition, first issue, of Baldelli's translation of Historia Hierosolymitana, sive historia itineris contra Turcos, the most successful early account of the First Crusade. Robert the Monk's account composed c. 1107 survives in around 100 manuscripts. The first Latin edition was first published in 1472 at Cologne, a Dutch translation appeared in Gouda 1486, and a German one in 1584. Baldelli's translation was the only Italian version until the 19th century.Robert's chronicle begins with a lengthy description of Pope Urban II's call to arms in his speech at the Council of Clermont, which he says he attended. He based his text the remainder on the Gesta Francorum and other sources as it is not thought that he participated in the Crusade itself . He follows journey of Godfrey of Bouillon with his brother Baldwin along the road of Charlemagne, through Hungary to Constantinople in 1096, and the war against the Seljuks.According to Oxford entry on COPAC, ?First issue has page number ?3? on title-page; page 5 not numbered.

Hablamos de 'ejemplar estándar' porque da la impresión de que su impresor tuviera la intención de mantener una publicación 'en curso', preparada para ir creciendo con el desarrollo del Concilio, habida cuenta de las diferentes variantes que se encuentan entre los ejemplares conservados. Todos ellos coinciden en presentar un mismo primer cuerpo inicial, A-E8, Ee8, que termina con la oratio del 13 de diciembre de 1551, De Christiana professione, del agustino Leonardo d'Arezzo. A partir de ahí, los diferentes ejemplares presentan añadidos con diferentes contenidos salidos todos de la misma imprenta. En el ejemplar que ofrecemos lo que acompaña es un cuaderno de 8 folios F8 con la oratio De Circuncisione Domini, pronunciada por el carmelita Eberhard Billick (ca. 1499-1557), a la que precede en F1 la oratio al cardenal Crescencio pronunciada por el teólogo Paolo Passota en junio de 1551. Esta composición del cuadernillo, que coincide, por ejemplo, con los ejemplares de la Biblioteca comunale di Trento y con el de la Biblioteca nazionale Vittorio Emanuele III, se debe a que la oratio de Billick también fue difundida con portada propia, por lo que, paraece que en los ejemplares destinados a incorporarse a la colección, la portada y su verso en F1 fueron sustituidas por la oratio al cardenal Crescencio. Existen otros ejemplares que, a veces en su lugar, a veces añadidamente, poseen otras oratio, la ofrecida por Francisco Heredia el dia de todos los santos de 1551 (sign A-B4) y/o la del prior del monasterio de san Marcos de Trento, Mariano Rocca. Un aspecto sumamente interesante de las colecciones de actas publicadas en el transcurso del Concilio es el detalle, normalmente inadvertido, de que algunos de los términos empleados en los decretos de las primeras sesiones fueron modificados en la publicación oficial final, quedando los decretos acordados alterados en esos puntos. En efecto, si se comparan los textos difundidos antes de 1564, que en su mayoría proceden de las copias facilitadas a los obispos en el propio Concilio, se observa que el texto de las sesiones del primer periodo coincide en las actas apócrifas del verano de 1546 (nuestra ref.

      Ko¨nigsperg in Preussen, (Hans Lufft), 10. Januarij 1552.. 10 Bll. Rücknebroschur. 4°. VD 16 O 1128. - Andreas Osiander (1498-1552) war Theologe und deutscher Reformator. 1549 wurde Osiander von Herzog Albrecht von Brandenburg-Ansbach als Theologieprofessor an die noch junge, 1544 gegründete Albertus-Universität Königsberg berufen. Dort geriet er in heftigen Streit mit den Anhängern Philipp Melanchthons; in der Auseinandersetzung ging es um die Rechtfertigungslehre, eine der Kernaussagen reformatorischer Theologie. Für Melanchthon blieb ein Sünder auch nach der Rechtfertigung vor Christus zutiefst ein Sünder, Osiander war dagegen - ähnlich der Position der Ostkirchen - der Meinung, dass die Gerechtigkeit Christi durch den Glauben dem Menschen eingepflanzt und somit ein Wesensbestandteil des Glaubenden wird. - Breitrandiges Exemplar mit alten Annotationen, sauberen Anstreichungen und gemalten Abschnittsanzeigern. Minimal fleckig, insgesamt wohlerhalten.

Erste Ausgabe der Erläuterungen zu den Sonntags-Episteln, eines der zahlreichen Lehrwerke, die Lossius zum Gebrauch am Lüneburger Gymnasium ausarbeitete. Wie alle Werke des Verfassers selten; dieses nicht im JAP. - Lossius (1508-82), Schüler und enger Bekannter Luthers und Melanchthons, kaum auf deren Empfehlung 1532 als Sekretär von Urbanus Rhegius nach Lüneburg; Hermann Tulich holte ihn 1533 an sein Gymnasium. "Vermutlich 1542 wurde Lossius Konrektor; er blieb es bis zu seinem Tode. In den Jahren 1540-42 erhielt er einen Ruf an die Universität Wittenberg, den er ausschlug. Um 1552 lehnte er einen Ruf als Professor der Theologie an die Akademie in Kopenhagen ebenfalls ab" (NDB XV, 202f.). Lossius' bleibendes Verdienst besteht insbesondere auf dem Gebiet der protestantischen Kirchenmusiktheorie. "Von ähnlich weitreichendem Einfluß waren auch seine Werke zur Kirchengeschichte. Die große Liste bedeutender Widmungsträger, denen Lossius seine Werke zueignete, die noch vorhandenen etwa 40 Briefe von ihm und ca. 300 an ihn zeigen, daß er zum Kreis der bedeutenden Humanisten des 16. Jh. gehörte" (ebd.). - Der gut erhaltene Einband zeigt innerhalb einer Jagdrolle (fliehender Hirsch und Hunde) ein Knospenstempelmuster im Binnenfeld, der innere Rahmen mit Rosettenstempelung.

First edition of these commentaries of the Gospels and the Acts of the Apostles and a very handsome copy in a fine contemporary blindstamped panelled binding over wooden boards. Gaigny (d. 1549), "was a person of distinction in his own time…He witnessed at first hand the golden years of the French Renaissance, a period in whose dramatic events he became an important player. Priest, doctor of theology, a scholar of Greek and Hebrew, he ended his life as chancellor of the University of Paris [and librarian to François I]…In the tradition of Guillaume Budé, Jean de Gagny was a philologist and humanist, but also a rigorous theologian, active in the theology faculty of the university…A considerable part of Gagny's theological work was devoted to commentaries on St Paul, to research into ancient Christian texts as yet unpublished, to their publication and translation, and to Latin verse. He founded his own printing-house for which he had special type manufactured, he imported books from the Aldine press in Venice, he had his works written in exquisite calligraphy for the King and major courtiers, and he employed the best printers and binders of his time."-André Jammes & Nicolas Barker, "Jean de Gagny: A Bibliophile Re-Discovered" in The Library, Seventh Series, Vol. 11, No. 4 (Dec. 2010), pp. 405-46. He was a considerable book collector himself. With ample funds, he collected good and beautiful books, both manuscript and printed and commissioned books to be written by calligraphic scribes and have them bound by the best binders. This work, edited by Jean Benoit (1484?-1572), enjoyed considerable success with reprints in 1559, 1630, and 1631. Binding a little wormed, but a fine and crisp copy. ❧ Bietenholz et al., Contemporaries of Erasmus, II, pp. 70-72.

      Basileae: Ex Officina Ioannis Oporini, March 1552; Tubingae: Per Ulrichum Morhardum, 1546; Parisiis: Apud Joannem Lodo[v]icum Tiletanum, 1545. Containing three Greek classics with their Latin translations, mostly on facing pages, this is an unusually well-preserved specimen of a seldom-seen early binding style. In addition to Aesop's well-known "Fables," composed in the 6th century B.C., the present volume contains Xenophon's "Cyropaedia" (an early 4th century B.C. idealized biography of Cyrus the Great) and the "Tablet" of Cebes (a moralistic consideration, in the Socratic manner, of the significance of human life, probably not by the 4th century Greek philosopher it is attributed to, but rather by a pseudonymous author of the 1st or 2nd century A.D.). All three of our editions are obscure, and it is instructive to imagine how they would have been purchased--no doubt in original sheets--from a stationer handling the products of presses from Switzerland, Germany, and France and then assembled, perhaps by a university scholar, to provide an anthology of works likely meant for language study. Wallet-style bindings were used in the 16th century on books that were either very luxurious or put to hard use. Elaborately decorated wallet bindings might be used to protect precious manuscripts, while plainer versions were commonly used to protect ledger or account books, which were frequently used in open-air settings and which could encounter very hard wear. Few of these bindings have survived, and the present example is the first 16th century wallet binding we've had in our inventory in 35 years. It is a utilitarian binding, simply stitched onto the text block, and with no embellishment other than the brass clasp--perfectly designed for an impecunious student or teacher who would appreciate inexpensive protection beyond that given by the usual book with the fore edge of its text block exposed.. 171 x 102 mm. (6 3/4 x 4"). 137 (i.e., 134), [2] pp.; 451, [5] pp.; 51, [3] pp. Three separately published works bound in one volume. EXCELLENT PERIOD FLEXIBLE VELLUM WALLET-STYLE BINDING composed of a single sheet of vellum folded around spine and fore edge, the edges overlapping on the front cover and held together with the original brass clasp and catch, flat spine with two apparently original exposed cords, vellum fragments of old (12th century?) manuscript leaves used as sewing guards, modern repair (approximately two inches square) to upper corner of left flap. In a fine recent folding cloth box with thick plush lining. Title page of Aesop with decorative woodcut border by Holbein; title page of Cebes with woodcut printer's device. Front flyleaf with modern armorial bookplate of Hermann Kunst. Rear flyleaves with six pages of notes in Greek and Latin in an attractive 16th century hand. First work: VD16 X 31; not in Adams, Schweiger, or Hoffmann. Second work: Hoffmann I, 64; Schweiger I, 13; VD16 A 420; not in Adams. Third work: not in Adams or Hoffmann; Schweiger I, 77 (citing a 1562 Paris edition translated by Theodore Adams). Front cover with very small tear in vellum flanked by a total of five holes (as a vestige of an early sewed repair), front flyleaves a little dusty, curled, and with a two-inch slit near the top (one slit with old, neat paper repair), first title page a little soiled, some of the text with very faint overall yellowing, but almost entirely quite fresh and clean internally, and the binding markedly well preserved. Containing three Greek classics with their Latin translations, mostly on facing pages, this is an unusually well-preserved specimen of a seldom-seen early binding style. In addition to Aesop's well-known "Fables," composed in the 6th century B.C., the present volume contains Xenophon's "Cyropaedia" (an early 4th century B.C. idealized biography of Cyrus the Great) and the "Tablet" of Cebes (a moralistic consideration, in the Socratic manner, of the significance of human life, probably not by the 4th century Greek philosopher it is attributed to, but rather by a pseudonymous author of the 1st or 2nd century A.D.).

         ARETAEI CAPPADOCIS Medici In Signis Ac Vetustissimi Libri Septem / RUFFI EPHESII Medici Clarissimi, De Corporis Humani Partium Appellationibus Libri Tres.

      Venice: Giunta Press, 1552 ARETAEUS of Cappadocia (fl. ca A.D. 50). Libri septem - RUFUS of Ephesus (fl. 1st century A.D.) De corporis humani partium appellationbus libri tres. Both texts translated from Greek into Latin by Junius Paulus Crassus (ca 1500-75). Venice: Giunta Press, 1552. 4o (243 x 170 mm). 112 leaves. Roman and italic types. Printer's woodcut device on title-page and verso of last leaf, woodcut ornamental initials. (Waterstain at inner corner of upper margins.) Contemporary limp vellum (stained at top). Provenance: Princes of Liechtenstein (bookplate); Haskell F. Norman (bookplate, his sale part I, Christie's New York, 18 March, 1988, lot 16). FIRST EDITIONS. Born Cappadocia, an ancient name of a region in central Turkey, Aretaeus probably was schooled in Caesarea, after which he went to Alexandria and Rome. His writings on the causes, symptoms and cures of acute and chronic diseases are the only works of the Pneumatic school of physicians that survived. The Pneumatic School reflected Stoic influence and emphasized the physician's compassion for the patient. Aretaeus gave the first accurate account of diabetes, which he named, the first clear account of diphtheria, and the classic description of nodous leprosy. Like Aretaeus, Rufus was born in Turkey, in Ephesus. At the time Ephesus was an important medical center with a museum and an association of physicians. Rufus, who lived under the Emperor Trajan (98-117 C. E.) seems to have spent his entire active life in Ephesus, after he completed his medical studies, probably at Alexandria. Among Rufus' prolific writings was the earliest treatise on anatomical nomenclature- On the Names of the Parts of the Human Body. Rufus considered anatomy an important part of the study of medicine. He complained that he had to teach anatomy on the bodies of monkeys, even though he stated that "in ancient times anatomy was taught with more profit on the cadaver" (quoted by Prioreschi, A History of Medicine Volume III: Roman Medicine, 251). This is probably a reference to the earlier work of Herophilus of Alexandria who conducted human dissection. After Galen, who also taught human anatomy using apes, Rufus is considered the most significant Greek physician of the Roman Empire. Rufus made numerous contributions to anatomy and physiology, including an improved description of the eye, and the earliest description of the human liver as five-lobed (an error that would persist until Vesalius' time).

         Histoire generalle des Indes Occidentales et terres neuves, qui jusques à present ont esté descouvertes. Paris, Michel Sonnius, 1578. 8vo. 19th-century richly gold-tooled green morocco (HARDY).

      Alden & Landis 587/19; Leclec 648; Palau 141161; Parry & Keith, New Iberian World III, pp. 213ff; Sabin 27747. Rare early edition of a French translation of López de Gómara's chronicle, one of the most important historical works on the discovery of the New World, first published in Spanish in 1552: "of outstanding merit and exceptionally well informed" (Parry).López de Gómara (ca.1511-ca. 1566), historian at Seville, is particularly famous for his descriptions of Hernán Cortés. Although he visited the Americas only after Cortés's death, he had direct access to Cortés (as his chaplain) and other "conquistadores" on their return to Spain and related their stories. He also had access to many documents that have since disappeared. Gómara's tale is superbly told, with sustained dramatic tension and telling irony and most of his information appears to be accurate.Washed copy, slightly browned, with faded owner's inscription on title-page and the lithographed bookplate of J. Flach (Strasbourg). In good condition.

         Merionethshire.

      London., c1627. Size:420 x 545 mm. Copperplate engraving with later hand colour. Fair condition. Map has had repairs to lower centrefold and margin. General toning. John Speed (1552-1629) is arguably the most famous name in early English cartography. In 1610 he published his wonderful and historic atlas 'The Theatre of Great Britain'. In 1627 he published another edition entitled 'A Prospect of The Most Famous Parts of The World', published in London by John Sudbury and George Humble. Speed based his maps on the earlier works done by Christopher Saxton and John Norden. His maps have always been keenly sought after as include many decorative features. Examples include: compass roses, cherubs, coats of arms, mannerist style decoration, prominent town plans, calligraphy and well defined regional physical features. John Speed's maps proved so popular that they were issued for many years after his death. This example is of the Welsh county of Merionethshire.

        Il vero ritratto di tutta l'Alamagna

      Venezia 1552 - Incisione in rame, acquaforte e bulino, 1552, firmata e datata in lastra in mezzo a sinistra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "Leone" (Woodward 37, indicata come tipica della tipografia di Giolito), con ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Incisa da Enea Vico. Rara ed importante mappa della Germania, nel suo primo stato. La mappa deriva dalla collaborazione tra il Gastaldi e Giolito de Ferrari, due piemontesi attivi a Venezia. Dal punto di vista cartografico, è basata sulla carta dell’area - andata perduta - di Heinrich Zell, realizzata nel 1549 o 1550. La sua forma trapezoidale, ricorda le carte della Geographia di Tolomeo, opera della quale Gastaldi realizzò una versione "tascabile" nel 1548. La mappa è assolutamente ricca di toponimi, ed influenzò tutta la cartografia del XVI secolo relativa alla zona, venendo più volte ristampata ed aggiornata. Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari è uno dei più attivi e conosciuti stampatori veneziani del XVI secolo, e può essere considerato il miglior rappresentante di quel rinnovamento dei caratteri, nel senso di una maggiore leggerezza ed eleganza, che verso il 1540 si era diffuso nelle tipografie veneziane, soprattutto nelle stamperie nuove (quelle di F. Marcolini, M. Tramezzino, Comin da Trino, V. Valgrisi, G. Grifio). Giacomo Gastaldi ebbe il grande merito di utilizzare e diffondere nel campo della cartografia la tecnica dell’acquaforte, che consentiva all’incisore di realizzare disegni molto più precisi e nitidi, favorendone una lettura più agevole. Quasi tutti i cartografi antecedenti avevano, invece, usato la tecnica della xilografia, molto meno precisa. Enea Vico (Parma 1523 – Ferrara 1567), è antiquario, disegnatore, incisore e numismatico. Dopo aver acquisito una prima formazione letteraria e artistica in Parma, e forse conosciuto i principi del disegno alla scuola di Giulio Romano, Enea si trasferisce a Roma nel 1541. Nella città pontificia lavora per Tommaso Barlacchi, stampatore che compare al suo fianco come incisore in una serie di grottesche edite nel 1542. Nel clima classicheggiante ed erudito della città, il suo stile si affina sui modelli di Perin del Vaga e di Francesco Salviati, pur sempre interpretati secondo la lezione di Parmigianino. Lasciata Roma per Venezia, il Vico soggiorna a Firenze presso Cosimo I per poi stabilirsi a Venezia dove, a detta del Vasari, era andato nel 1557. Nel 1563 passa al servizio di Alfonso d’Este, a Ferrara, rimanendovi fino alla morte avvenuta il 17 agosto 1567. Meraviglioso esemplare di questa influente mappa della Germania. Bibliografia: a) Almagià (1948): pp. 26-7; Borroni Salvadori (1980): n. 276; Castellani (1876): n. 117; Christie’s Ln (2006): n. 62; Christie’s (2011): n. 55; De Vries (1981): n. 216; Gallo (1954): M, n. 28; Italiaanse kaartenmakers (1996): n. 42; Lafreri (2014): n. 24; Ruge (1904-16): III, n. 29.21 e IV, n. 90.40; Shirley (2004): I, n. 39; Sotheby’s (2005): n. 32; Wieder (1915): p. 6, n. 40; Hellwig (1983): n. 83; Herrmann (1940): p. 17; Karrow (1993): n. 30/70 & 84/5.4; Meurer (1984): n. 30; Meurer (2001): p. 245, n. 3.3.3; Mostra Bergamo (2016): n. 24; Szathmáry (1987): n. 38; Tooley (1939): n. 250 & 251. Etching and engraving, 1552, signed and dated in the plate in the middle on the left. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "Lion" (Woodward 37, referred to as typical of typography Giolito), with wide margins, in perfect condition. Engraved by Enea Vico. Rare and important map of Germany, in his first state. The map is derived from the collaboration between the Gastaldi and Giolito de Ferrari, two Piedmontese active in Venice. The map, is based on the lost map by Heinrich Zell, made in 1549 or 1550. Its trapezoidal shape, reminiscent of Ptolemy's Geographia, which Gastaldi published in 1548. The map is absolutely full of place names, and influenced all the maps for the area in the sixteenth century, and was frequently reprinted and updated. Gabri [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
