        SLOVENIA & NORTHERN CROATIA]. ILLIRICI SEU SCLAVONIAE CONTINENTIS CROATIAM, CARNIAM, ITRIAM, BOSNIAM, EISQUAE CONTERMINAS PROVINCIAS RECENS AC EMENDATUS TYPUS AUCTORE AUGUSTINO HIRSVOLGELIO. / MYSIAM HANC SUPERIOREM DACIAEQUE PARTEM LIBURNIAM DALMATIAMQU.

      - This scarce and fascinating map embraces all of the territory of modern Slovenia and northern Croatia, and extends from the Adriatic Coast, in the west, to the Danube, in the east, and from the Drava valley, in the north, down to include the northern reaches of Dalmatia and Bosnia, in the south. The map is dominated by the Sava and Drava River valleys, which are labeled with numerous towns, including ‘Laibach’ (Ljubljana) and ‘Agram’ (Zagreb). The map is one of the foundational maps of the region and importantly depicts the frontier between Ottoman and Habsburg controlled territory, as it existed between 1552 and 1593. The map was published by the De Jode family of Antwerp, and evinces their especially fine signature talent for map design and engraving. It is largely based on a 1539 manuscript map depicting the Ottoman-Habsburg borderlands made by the great German mathematician, artist, and cartographer Augustin Hirschvogel (1503 - 1553), made while he resided in Ljubljana. Hirschvogel, the son of a successful artist, apprenticed as a glass painter in his hometown of Nuremberg. As a member of the Danube School, he was respected for his virtuous landscape drawings, although his talents extended to engineering and cartography. Between 1536 and 1543, he lived in Ljubljana, where he produced his aforementioned map along a famous map of Austria (1542). In 1544, at the behest of the Habsburg Court, Hirschvogel moved Vienna, where he redesigned the bastions of the city’s walls. He was notably also responsible for the engraved illustrations within Sigismund von Herberstein's seminal book on Russia, Rerum Moscoviticarum Commentarii (1549). Historical Context: The Hundred Years’ Croatian-Ottoman War During the Hundred Years’ Croatian-Ottoman War (1493 - 1593), the Ottomans progressively conquered parts of Slavonia, in northeastern Croatia. The complete destruction of the Hungarian army at the hands of the Turks at the Battle of Mohács (1526) sealed the fate of the surrounding region. The Ottomans conquered ?akovo in 1536 and Požega in 1537, after defeating a large Habsburg army led by Johann Katzianer at the battle of Gorjani. The Ottoman-Turkish border as demarcated by Hirschvogel followed on the heals of these events. Osijek fell to Turkish forces in 1540, followed in the same year by Novska, and then Našice (1541), Orahovica and Slatina (1542), and Vo?in, Sira? and Valpovo (1543), and Pakrac (1544). The Ottomans duly organized their Slavonian territories into the Sajaks of Požega and Pakrac. By 1552, the Ottomans had conquered all of Slavonia, advancing to the ?esma River (noted here as the ‘Zeschma fl.’), between the Drava and Sava valleys, and the Unac-Sana Rivers, south of the Sava. These borders roughly remained in place for the next four decades. While the present map is largely based on Hirschvogel’s 1539 antecedent, it updates the Ottoman-Habsburg frontier to reflect the boundary as it existed from 1552 to 1593. The frontier is implicit, in that the towns within Ottoman held territories are surmounted by a Crescent Moon, while towns within the Habsburg territories feature no such designation. The map shows that the frontier lay perilously close to Zagreb, and it remained a tense potential flashpoint for conflict. Importantly, the present map was printed in the same years as the Battle of Sisak (June 22, 1593), an epic showdown between the regional Ottoman and Habsburg forces, fought along the Sava, just downriver from Zagreb. The battle was inarguably a major turning point in European history, as the crushing defeat of the Turkish armies at the hands of a Croatian-Slovenian force permanently halted Ottoman advances in the Balkan-Pannonian region. From that point onwards, the Habsburgs would (albeit slowly and gradually) re-conquer Ottoman territory, although Slavonia would not be fully retaken until 1687, during the Great Turkish War (1667-98).

        I Lucidi comedia (with) Trinutia Comedia

      per Gio. Griffio, ad instantia di Pietro Boselli, Venice 1552 - 12mo. Two works in one vol. ff. 41 [i]. + 40, [ii]. (last blank). Italic letter. Charming woodcut printer’s device of a knight riding a bull on titles and on verso of last in both volumes, elegant historiated initials, typographical ornaments. ‘Francesco Mainarri Ferrarese 1765’ ms on title, ‘Mutius’ ms. in early hand in lower border of all four printer’s devices, ‘A Gio Antonio Balii (?) di Lugo’ on fly, ‘Guilio Magnani’ on blank recto of last. A little light browning in places. Very good copies in mid 17C Italian speckled calf, spine with raised bands ruled in compartments with large fleur de lys gilt, tan morocco label gilt edges speckled blue. Excellent editions of the only two comedies written by the lawyer, poet, playwright, and monk of the Vallambrosian order, Firenzuola. He studied law in Siena at the turn of the sixteenth century and later wrote with unconcealed bitterness about the years he spent "with great effort and without any pleasure [pursuing the study of] the ill-served laws of the most noble and lively city of Siena". He seems to have spent most of his University years in the company of like minded students particularly Pietro Aretino to whom he is most indebted in his literary career. Aretino later reminisced fondly about their misspent youth. Whilst in Rome, in the service of his order, Firenzuola moved in the literary circle that included Pietro Aretino, Frasceso Molza, Paolo Giovio, and the future archbishop Giovanni Casa. He wrote an amusing satirical treaty on orthography in which he argued, in a comic vein, against the proposed introduction into Italian of several Greek letters; a work that was much appreciated by Pope Clement VII, and Bembo, and lead a short lived literary fame. His subsequent works met with a luke warm response in Rome. In 1538, in Prato, he began to write again, after an absence of nearly twenty years, including his dialogue ‘on the Beauty of Women’ and these two comedies. He died in obscurity but his works were posthumously successful, underwent several editions with critical attention and were translated to French. His two comedies are in the contemporary Tuscan vernacular. These are typical of his best work. They are prose comedies which, in their structure, plot, and language are fully entrenched in the genre of sixteenth-century Italian erudite theatre. The first takes its plot and many of its lines and witticisms from Plautus’s Menaechmi and the second has a novelistic plot borrowed from Cardinal Bibbiena’s play Calandria; both were performed in Prato at Carnival. An attractive copy of these elegantly printed works. BM STC It. C16. p. 253-4 Fontanini p. 389 - 390. Not in Gamba. Italian [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        DE STIRPIUM, MAXIME EARUM, QUAE IN GERMANIA NOSTRA NASCUNTUR Commentariorum libri tres, Germanica primum lingua conscripti, nunc in Latinam conversi, interprete Davide Kybero Argentinensi.

      Argentorati, excudebat Vuendelinus Rihelius, 1552. In-8 p. (mm. 222 x 166). 2 voll., p. pergam. antica (risg. rifatti) tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli rossi, cc.nn. 34, pp.num. 1200, cc.nn. 32, ornati da alcuni grandi capilettera figur. a vignetta; con un ritratto dell?'A. (al recto della c. ?"d?" 10) inciso a p. pagina e con l?'illustrazione di 568 piante, silografate nel t., il tutto con pregevole coloritura d?'epoca. "Mancano 2 carte": 1 di ?"Index?" (c. KKk) e l?'ultima di colophon (qui riprodotte su carta antica). Nell?'opera ?"His accesserunt praefationes duae, altera Conradi Gesneri rei herbariae scriptorum, qui in hunc usque diem scripserunt, catalogum compectens: altera ipsius autoris herbariae cognitionis laudes continens. Praetera corollarii vice ad calcem operis, adiectus est Benedicti Textoris Segusiani de Stirpium differentiis, ex Dioscoride secundum locos communes, Libellus, omnibus plantariae cognitionis studiosis utilissimus?". Nel 1539 apparve la prima edizione in tedesco, senza figure, ma già comprensiva della classificazione delle piante in famiglie. Questa del 1552 è la "prima edizione latina", tradotta da David Kyber, e accresciuta di circa 100 nuove silografie rispetto alla prima edizione tedesca illustrata del 1546 che ne conteneva 477, realizzate da David Kandel. Kandel, per la maggior parte, basava le sue silografie su quelle di Fuchs e Brunfels, ma le nuove tavole sono totalmente originali ed includono anche alcune deliziose scene di genere nella raffigurazione degli alberi (sono state aggiunte figure di uomini e di animali). Hieronymus Bock (1498-1554) è considerato uno dei padri tedeschi della botanica moderna assieme a Brunfels e a Fuchs e fu tra i primi a cercare di classificare le piante che, nel suo ?"De Stirpium?", divide in tre libri o classi: il primo contiene le erbe selvatiche o fiori odoriferi; il secondo i trifogli e le graminacee; il terzo gli alberi e gli arbusti. Nella sua trattazione delle piante allora conosciute, i vegetali, oltrechè fedelmente raffigurati, vengono accuratamente descritti anche nel loro habitat, con l?'indicazione della località, ecc. Questa prima ediz. latina contiene nella prefazione un importante contributo di Conrad Gessner (amico di Bock) in cui fa la storia completa della botanica fino ai suoi tempi, oltre a fornire una bibliografia di scrittori di botanica, considerata la prima in questo campo. L?'edizione termina con un commento e la ristampa dell?'"Index" di Dioscoride, fatto da Benedetto Tessier. Cfr. Pritzel,867 - Nissen,183 - Brunet,I, p. 1023 - Cat. of the Library British Museum, I, p. 182 - Biographie Universelle (1881),IV, p. 629-632. Leggerm. corto del margine sup.; nel vol. I°, prime 4 cc. restaur. per picc. manc., mentre la p. 537 (per manc. di cm. 10x7,5) è stata restaur. con sapiente trascriz. del testo su 15 righe (al verso solo su 3 righe); alc. cc. restaur. per picc. manc. all?'ang. infer.; con qualche alone margin. più o meno lieve in entrambi i volumi. Malgrado questi difetti è un buon esemplare.

        Quattro libri de dubbi con dotte solutioni a ciascun dubbio accommodate....

      Venezia, Giolito de'Ferrari, 1552.. 8°. 318 pp., 1 f., with two woodcut printer s devices - with one extra leaf bound in Newer full vellum in the style of the 16th cent.. Bongi, Giolito I, 370; Grendler, Critics 227, 29. Rare first edition of this catalogue of "dubious" problems or uncertainties containing in contrast to the announcement on the title only three books, as the printer Giolito did not get a permission to print the fourth part on erotic questions, that was later published as "Quesiti amorosi" in another collection. Here presented are three chapters with "doubts" and their answers divided into the fields: natural history, moral philosophy and religious issues. The last part and its unorthodox treatment led to the title being put on the index of forbidden books. The whole work seems in parts like a parody of traditional collections of philosophical or medical "problemata", like for instance the handbook "Il perche" by Manfredi. Every topic is introduced with the question "why is..." and answered in a way that is sometimes satirical. Compared with his sources, Lando has often boiled down a lengthy and finical discussion to a witty aphorism that in some places borders on the absurd (cf. Cherchi, Polimatia di riuso, 1998, p. 123f.). - This copy has an extra leaf of dedication bound in, so that there are two leaves "Aii" (pages 3-4), one with a dedication to J. J. Fugger, the other to Christoph Mielich. - Extra white papers bound in later, one with extensive bibliographical information, page 5 with old annotation, only first and last leaf browned or a little soiled, apart from small stains mostly clean.

        Lo Sbratta comedia di Bernardino Pino da Cagli, recitata in Roma. Et nuovamente ristampata

      In 12mo (cm 14); cartoncino posteriore; cc. 54. Marca tipografica al titolo. Ottima copia marginosa.RARA SECONDA EDIZIONE (la prima apparve a Roma nel 1552) di questa commedia in cinque atti in prosa, la prima e più licenziosa fra quelle scritte dal Pino, in cui si narrano le avventure galanti di un vecchio e dei suoi due figli che si innamorano della stessa giovane, disposta a concedersi con una certa generosità . L'edizione si apre con una nuova dedica al cavalier Dandino, datata Roma 22 agosto 1562. La commedia fu rappresentata per la prima volta il 22 novembre del 1551 a Roma, dove si svolge anche la scena. «The first of his plays, Lo Sbratta, produced in Rome in 1551, is the liveliest and least serious. The prologue maintains that the "plot is new and not distilled from the fancies of others"; but both plot and characters are pretty conventional, reminescent of classical and neoclassical practice. The main cog in the machinery of action is the clever servant Sbratta (cleaner), who characterizes himself accurately when he says: "Believe me it is not without cause that I am called Sbratta, for I am the man to clean up everything" (1.4). And so he does. His master, elderly Alberto, and both of Alberto's sons appeal for help in winning Adriana. Sbratta keeps all three busy and hopeful while actually getting the girl for one of the sons. Disguise and mistaken identity are prominent in working out the intrigues. There is a rather unexpected denouement, for the girl's father bestows his daughter upon still another man, who is cuck - olded as it were before he is married. Some local color and most of the fun are supplied by a peasant character borrowed from the farce. If this play were his only contribution, Pino would hardly be considered in any account of serious comedy» (M.T. Herrick, Italian Comedy in the Renaissance, Urbana - London, 1966, pp. 175 - 176). «Il programma dello Sbratta prevedeva il riuso di modelli classici e il loro adattamento a una configurazione urbana, topografica e sociale, moderna, in ordine alla quale si orientasse il meccanismo dei personaggi e le loro rispettive funzioni prendessero corpo... Lo Sbratta non doveva presentarsi come un'opera "finta", immaginaria, sorta da un vezzo letterario o da un'intenzione esclusivamente moralistico - intrattenitiva. Pino teneva a collocarla in una forma urbana verosimile, a descrivervi rapporti interpersonali che rispecchiassero gli equilibri della città  post - rinascimentale e a sostituire i procedimenti comici più logori e irrealistici con altri, che gli sembrassero adeguatamente attestati nella realtà  quotidiana... Il "realismo" dello Sbratta era il primo livello di una trasformazione della commedia che Pino andò perfezionando nelle opere seguenti, propagandandone gli esiti nei prologhi. Il passaggio dalla "commedia" al "ragionamento" - per riprendere le definizioni d'autore - portava con sé l'ampliamento della dimensione didascalica rispetto alle diffuse formule intrattenitive» (S. Termanini, Introduzione, in: "B. Pino da Cagli, Lo Sbratta. Commedia del XVI secolo", Ravenna, 2003, pp. 59 e 63 - 64). Bernardino Pino, nato a Cagli da una antica famiglia di Osimo, compì gli studi a Roma. Preso l'abito ecclesiastico, nel 1557 fu nominato canonico e rettore della chiesa di Castel Buccione vicino Urbino, quindi nel 1569 abbate di S. Angelo de Sortecchi, infine nel 1589 preposto della Cattedrale di Cagli, carica che mantenne fino alla morte. Frequentò assiduamente la corte urbinate in qualità  di segretario ed ambasciatore. Guidobaldo della Rovere gli concesse nel 1566 il titolo nobiliare. Amico di Bernardo e Torquato Tasso, compose numerose commedie in prosa e scrisse anche una Breve considerazione sulla commedia (1578). Tramite l'amico Dionigi Atanagi, anch'egli cagliese, il Pino ebbe modo di entrare in contatto con tutti i maggiori intellettuali dell'epoca. Fu con la messa in scena di una sua opera che nel 1585 si inaugurò la prima sala per spettacoli di Cagli, ricavata all'interno del Palazzo Comunale (cfr. G. Mangaroni Brancuti, Bernardino Pino, commediografo cagliese del secolo XVI, Cagli, 1897, passim). Edit16, CNCE37458. M. Bregoli Russo, Renaissance Italian Theater, Firenze, 1984, nr. 495. F .

        La prematica que su Magestad ha mandado hazer para que las iusticias destos reynos tassen y moderen el precio que ha de valer el Calçado, y lo a ello perteneciente, hecha esta año de M.D.LII.

      [Colophon] Alcalá de Henares, en casa del señor Juan de Brocar que santa gloria aya [title page: Vendense en casa de Calcedo el Librero en Alcala], a xxiiij. dias del mes de Octubre, M.D.lii. (24 October 1552). - Woodcut (19.2 x 15.2 cm) occupies most of title page (a good impression): the great coat of arms of Carlos I, set against a double-headed eagle whose feet rest on 2 pillars with Carlos's motto "Plus Ultra"; the eagle and arms are flanked by elaborate columns supporting a pediment, and encircled by the collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece. Above, 2 cherubs bear standards with initials (I.D.V. and M.F.C.), and at the very top is a frieze bearing the words "Carolus V. Imperator Rex Hispanie." All this is enclosed in a single-rule border. Five woodcut initials in text, ranging from 8- to 5-line. Gothic redonda type, 38 lines. (8 ll.), signed a-b@4. Folio (29.2 x 19.7 cm.), later wrappers of laid paper (eighteenth-century?). Two leaves (b2-3) lightly browned. Faint rust-mark from paper clip at top of title page. A few small brown spots. Overall in fine to very fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this fascinating glimpse into the nitty-gritty details of the manufacture and sale of leather goods, one of Spain?s leading industries, during an economic crisis under D. Carlos I (Emperor Charles V). Although it was published in the form of a legal decree, it includes specific comments and complaints from the bureaucrats and merchants in Madrid who were forced to implement it. This makes it one of the earliest printed works to deal specifically with Spain's future capital. In @Impresos de los siglos XVI y XVII de tematica madrileña, Sanchez Alonso cites only 5 earlier works, and was apparently unaware of this one.In a decree of 9 October 1552 (reprinted on ff. a2r-a3v), D. Carlos ordered prices to be fixed for shoes and other leather goods. The decree was published as @La prematica para el remedio de la grand carestia que havia en el calçado, variations of which were printed in October and November of that year at Madrid and Alcalá de Henares.Recognizing that prices varied widely throughout Spain, D. Carlos ordered the local @ayuntamientos to set the prices of leather goods for their regions. The remaining 5 leaves of this work are Madrid?s response to the decree. This section includes names of shoemakers in Madrid and a list of prices for footwear according to size, material, and type (shoes, boots, slippers, etc.). For example, a shoe of cordovan leather of 4 @puntos can be sold for a maximum of 28 @maravedis, while one of 13 @puntos can be sold for 64 @maravedis.Among the series of @Ordenaron y mandaron are two discursions whose presence is surprising in what appears at first glance to be simply a royal decree printed for dissemination. There is a complaint from the shoemakers that if they are not allowed to prepare skins in their own shops, a few men will corner the market and drive prices up (ff. b1v-b2r, 23 lines). Another section reports on a legal dispute between men who prepared hides and shoemakers. Following it is the judge?s ruling on the matter, with details and a promise by local officials that they will abide by the judge's decree (ff. b3v-b4r, 47 lines).Price regulations such as these were an attempt to resolve severe shortages of basic commodities in Spain. The influx of gold from the Americas that began in the 1520s eventually led to massive inflation in the Spanish economy. Spanish goods were priced out of European markets, and shortages in clothing, shoes, and other basic goods became common throughout Spain. Mistakenly believing that the shortages were occurring because too many goods were shipped abroad, D. Carlos slapped on export restrictions. In May 1552 he prohibited the export of wool, silk, and leather goods from Spain, except to the Spanish colonies in America. Within a few years the export restrictions led to an economic depression, and merchants and the @cortes were pleading with the crown to revoke them; but the restrictions remained in place for more than a decade.The elegant, elaborate woodcut showing the arms of Carlos I is the work of Juan de Vingles, who signed it with his initials ("I.D.

Small folio, 330 x 230 mm, bound in nineteenth-century three-quarters vellum over marbled boards. Basel: Hieronymus Froben & Nicolaus Episcopius, 1552. |~||~||~||~| First Complete and First Illustrated Edition. A collection of works on the late Roman Empire, comprising a profusely illustrated guide to the workings of the Imperial Rome during the beginning of the 5th century, derived from a 9th or 10th century Greek manuscript. The manuscript has since disappeared; its content, however, is preserved in this edition with fine Renaissance woodcut illustrations. A cross-section of Roman life is depicted in the Notitia, including city views, amor, the insignia of Roman Legions, costume, and most interesting, numerous illustrations of codices and books. The book was edited by the scholar and friend to Erasmus, Sigismund Gelenus, who dedicated the work to the great anatomist Andreas Vesalius. The majority of the illustrations were done by the Swiss painter and engraver Conrad Schitt. The woodcut initials have been attributed to Hans Holbein. The volume consists of several tracts, including Beatus Rhenanus' description of the Roman province Illyricaum, Alciati's work on Roman military and civil organization, topographical descriptions of Rome and Constantinople, the Notitia Dignitatum, an anonymous 4th-century tract on the imperial army and ideas for new engines of war, including a design for a ship propelled by neither wind nor oar, and lastly an early medieval text Altercatio Adriani Augusti Epiceti philosphi.

        Tassa y ordenança hecha por provision Real en el insigne Consistorio desta ciudad de Salamanca, de corambre, y calçado, y obras de cuero, y odreria.

      Salamanca, por Andrea de Portonaris, 1552. - Large woodcut arms of Spain on title page. Two five-line criblé initials. Roman type, 41 lines. (10 ll.) Folio (30 x 19.6 cm.), later wrappers of laid paper (eighteenth-century?). Very small paper defects in lower margin of 3 leaves and very light dampstains in the margins of the final 3 leaves; but overall nearly pristine. Fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this fascinating glimpse into the nitty-gritty details of the manufacture and sale of leather goods ? one of Spain?s leading industries - during an economic crisis under D. Carlos I (Emperor Charles V). In a decree of 9 October 1552 (reprinted on ll. A2r-A3v), D. Carlos ordered prices to be fixed for shoes and other leather goods. The decree was published as @La prematica para el remedio de la grand carestia que havia en el calçado, variations of which were printed in October and November of that year at Madrid and Alcalá de Henares.Recognizing that prices varied widely throughout Spain, D. Carlos ordered the local @ayuntamientos to set the prices of leather goods for their regions. Here the officials at Salamanca announce prices for over a hundred types and sizes of shoes for men, women, and children, ranging from slippers to boots, in materials from the crudest cowhides to the finest cordovan leather. A shoe of cordovan leather "a la morisca" of 5 @puntos can be sold for a maximum of 29 @maravedis, while one of 13 @puntos can be sold for 69 @maravedis. Prices for leather bottles of various sizes (@cueros para vino) range from 51 to 119 @maravedis (ff. A9v-10r). A supplementary decree on the final leaf clarifies issues regarding @herretes (leather cords?). The names of members of the local government are mentioned, as well as Salamanca manufacturers and sellers of leather goods, with the locations of their shops.Price regulations such as these were an attempt to resolve severe shortages of basic commodities in Spain. The influx of gold from the Americas that began in the 1520s eventually led to massive inflation in the Spanish economy. Spanish goods were priced out of European markets, and shortages in clothing, shoes, and other basic goods became common throughout Spain. Mistakenly believing that the shortages were occurring because too many goods were shipped abroad, D. Carlos slapped on export restrictions. In May 1552 he prohibited the export of wool, silk, and leather goods from Spain, except to the Spanish colonies in America. Within a few years the export restrictions led to an economic depression, and merchants and the @cortes were pleading with the crown to revoke them; but the restrictions remained in place for more than a decade.This is a relatively early imprint by Andrea de Portonaris, active in Salamanca from 1547 to 1568 and most famous for the definitive edition of @Las Siete Partidas by Gregorio López, 1555. Descended from a family of printers in Italy who had established a branch in Lyon, he married a woman who was the widow and the daughter of Salamanca printers. Andrea published over 180 editions of books, making him Salamanca's most prolific sixteenth-century printer, and was the first in Salamanca to switch to redonda types from gothic.

        OPERA DI M. DOMENICO BRUNI DA PISTOIA INTITOLATA DIFESE DELLE DONNE. Nella quale si contengano le difese loro, dalle calumnie dategli per gli Scrittori, e insieme le lodi di quelle. Nuovamente posta in luce.

      Appresso i Giunti 1552 Opera dedicata a Leonora de Medici di Toledo. Cm.13,9x8,5. Pg.174, numerate solo al recto. Legatura ottocentesca in mz.pergamena con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli in oro al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Al frontespizio, ripetuta al colophon, marca tipografica con serpente in muta attorcigliato ad un giglio fiorito. Capilettera incisi. Alcune chiose d'epoca manoscritte, mozzate talvolta dalla rifilatura ottocentesca. Marginale alone che interessa l'intero volume senza inficiarne minimamente la fruibilità. Nell'opera si rivendica, nel solco della polemica cinquecentesca in favore delle donne, un ruolo decisamente positivo al "gentil sesso". Nelle bibliografie consultate il presente testo viene segnalato come in prima edizione, e ciò contrasta con la notazione al frontespizio "Nuovamente posta in luce". Ne dà forse una risposta il Capponi: "Dotto giureconsulto e scrittore elegante, fiorito nella prima metà del secolo decimosesto, Domenico Bruni era sacerdote, e fu dapprima Vicario Generale dell'illustre Monsignor Benedetto Conversini Vescovo di Bertinoro, suo concittadino; più tardi pretore di Cesena, sotto Paolo III. Nonostante l?aridezza delle occupazioni dalle quali fu circondato per la natura del suo impiego, non trascurò il diletto degli ameni studi, e scrisse la "Difesa delle Donne e insieme le lodi di quelle" (Milano 1549, e Firenze, 1552). È libro diventato piuttosto raro. L'Autore nel proemio, considerando che ?molti scrittori si hanno preso in uso ogni volta che loro occorre parlare o scrivere di donne, quelle con tutte le forze dell?ingegno loro biasimare, et non solo i communi biasimi et calunnie di quelle referire, ma anchora qualch'una di nuovo aggiungervene si sforzano, ... per satisfatione et honore di sì degno sesso? ... prese l'assunto generoso di voler mostrare a tutto il mondo, che ?a torto fin qui le donne sono state dalli scrittori basimate et vilipese?. L?opera è divisa in quattro libri, in ciascuno dei quali, per meglio rafforzare gli argomenti propostisi a diverso genere di difesa, ricorda e riferisce memorabili esempi di virtù muliebri mostrandole in ogni professione in tutto e per tutto pari al sesso virile. Vogliono alcuni che al nostro Bruni appartenga pure l?opera di Lodovico Domenichi intitolata "La Nobiltà delle Donne", stampata la prima volta a Venezia dal Giolito nell?anno 1549: e raccontano come il Bruni, comunicatala al Domenichi, questi con biasimevole ruberia se l?appropriasse, e quindi la desse alla luce sotto il proprio nome (Mazzuchelli, "Scrittori d'Italia", tomo 2° parte IV, pag. 2186). Rafforza la loro opinione il vedere che il Domenichi nella lettera a Bartolomeo Gottifredi che sta alla fine del suo libro, nella quale fa l?apologia di se stesso per avere preso a trattare un argomento già per molti altri trattato, e nomina parecchi scrittori antichi e moderni, delle cui fatiche si è giovato; tace poi affatto il nome del nostro Bruni. Del resto può anche darsi benissimo che l?opera del Bruni "Della Difesa delle Donne", che è di quasi simile argomento, abbia potuto far nascere un dubbio che non è stato ancora, e forse non sarà mai risoluto. Quest?opera la ricorda anche Antonio Matani nel suo lavoro "De Philosophicis Pistoriensum studiis": egli però sembra che la credesse latina, poiché la riferisce con questo titolo: "De Nobilitate et pulcritudine mulierum", senz?altro. Anche il Fioravanti dice in proposito ?quale opera va sotto il nome dell?involatore? (Capponi, "Bibliografia pistoiese")". Se ne trova conferma negli "Annali dei Giunti" ove il testo viene seccamente indicato come "prima edizione". L'Opera fu poi ristampata nel 1559 per i Tipi dell'Antoni a Milano.

        Opuscula anatomica.Venice: Vincentius Luchinus excudebat, 1564.

      First edition, very rare, of one of the most important of all anatomical books. It includes the first specific treatise on the kidney, the first account of the Eustachian tube in the ear, the first description of the thoracic duct, and the Eustachian valve, as well as the first systematic study of teeth. The fine etchings illustrating the edition "were the first eight in an intended series of forty-seven anatomical plates engraved by Giulio de' Musi after drawings by Eustachi and his relative, Pier Matteo Pini, an artist. These were prepared in 1552 to illustrate a projected book entitled <i>De dissensionibus ac controversiis anatomicis</i>, the text of which was lost after Eustachi's death. Had the full series of plates been published at the time of their completion, Eustachi would have ranked with Vesalius as a founder of modern anatomy" (Norman).<br/><br/> ❧Grolier <i>One Hunred Books Famous in Medicine</i> 21; <i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i> 322; Norman 739. Garrison-Morton 801.<br/><br/> "In 1562 and 1563 Eustachi wrote a series of anatomical treatises on the kidneys ("De renum structura"), the organ of hearing ("De auditus organis"), the venous system ("De vena quae azygos graecis dicitur") and the teeth ("De dentibus"), which he issued together under the title <i>Opuscula anatomica</i>. The treatise on the kidney, the first work devoted specifically to the organ, showed a detailed knowledge of the kidney surpassing any earlier work; it contained the first account of the adrenal (suprarenal) gland and a correct determination of the relative levels of the kidneys. The treatise on the ear provided the first post-classical account of the Eustachian tube, while the work on the azygos vein contained the first description of the thoracic duct and of the valvula venae in the right ventricle of the heart, the so-called "Eustachian valve." In his treatise on dentistry Eustachi was the first to study the teeth in any great detail: basing his work on the dissection of fetuses and stillborn infants, he gave an important description of the first and second dentitions, described the hard outer tissue and soft inner structure of the teeth, and attempted an explanation of the problem (not yet completely solved) of the sensitivity of the tooth's hard structure. This last work was also issued separately: it bears its own title-leaf dated 1563" (Norman).<br/><br/> The long search for the missing plates culminated in their discovery in the hands of a descendant of Pier Matteo Pini and their publication as <i>Tabulae anatomicae</i> (Rome, 1714) by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the physician of Pope Clement XI and a successor to Eustachio in the chair of anatomy at the Sapienza. "The plates are strikingly modern, produced without the conventional sixteenth-century decorative accompaniments and framed on three sides by numbered rules providing coordinates by which any part of the image could be located... The images are generic figures, composites of many anatomical observations, and are mathematically as well as representationally exact" (<i>ibid.</i>).<br/><br/> Relatively little is known about the life of Bartolomeo Eustachi. He was born in San Severino, most probably in the district of Ancona, although some authors maintain that it may have been San Severino in Calabria. His year of birth has been given as 1500, 1510, 1513 (most probable), 1520, and even 1524. Bartolomeo was the son of Mariano Eustachi, a celebrated physician said to be of noble family, and Francesca (Benvenuti) Eustachi. Mariano insisted upon a well-rounded humanistic education, in the course of which Eustachi acquired such an excellent knowledge of Greek, Hebrew, and Arabic that he was able to edit an edition of the Hippocratic glossary of Erotian (1566) and is said to have made his own translations of Avicenna from the Arabic. He appears to have studied medicine at the Archiginnsio della Sapenza in Rome, but it is not known precisely when. He began to practice medicine about 1540. Eustachi's talents were soon noticed by the duke of Urbino, who requested Eustachi as his personal physician. In 1547, Eustachi accepted the invitation to serve as physician to the duke's brother, Cardinal Giulio della Rovere, whom Eustachi followed to Rome in 1549. There he became protomedico and was invited to join the medical faculty of the Collegia della Sapienza as the equivalent of professor of anatomy. This academic position granted him permission to obtain cadavers for dissection from the hospitals of Santo Spirito and Consolazione. With advancing years Eustachi was so severely afflicted by gout that he was compelled to resign his post at the Sapienza. He continued, however, to serve Cardinal della Rovere, and it was in response to the cardinal's summons to Fossombrone in 1574 that he set forth, only to die on the way. <br/><br/> Adams E-1103; Choulant-Frank pp. 200-01; Garrison-Morton 801, 1093, 1139, 1228, 1538, and 3668; Grolier <i>Medicine</i> 21; <i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i> 322; NLM/Durling 1408; Norman 739; Wellcome 2091.. 4to (198 x 140 mm), fine Italian 17th century half calf, 326 leaves, pp. [12], [40], 1 [1] 2-4 [1] 5-8 [1] 9-12 [1] 13-15 [1] 16-17 [1] 18 [1] 19 [1] 20-323 [1], [8] 1-95 [1] [164]. 8 engravings, printed on rector or verso of letterpress pages 1, 4, 9, 12, 15, 18, 19, 20, but not included inthe pagination.

(al recto della c. ?d? 10) inciso a p. pagina e con l?illustrazione di 568 piante, silografate nel t., il tutto con pregevole coloritura d?epoca. "Mancano 2 carte": 1 di ?Index? (c. KKk) e l?ultima di colophon (qui riprodotte su carta antica). Nell?opera ?His accesserunt praefationes duae, altera Conradi Gesneri rei herbariae scriptorum, qui in hunc usque diem scripserunt, catalogum compectens: altera ipsius autoris herbariae cognitionis laudes continens. Praetera corollarii vice ad calcem operis, adiectus est Benedicti Textoris Segusiani de Stirpium differentiis, ex Dioscoride secundum locos communes, Libellus, omnibus plantariae cognitionis studiosis utilissimus?. Nel 1539 apparve la prima edizione in tedesco, senza figure, ma già comprensiva della classificazione delle piante in famiglie. Questa del 1552 è la "prima edizione latina", tradotta da David Kyber, e accresciuta di circa 100 nuove silografie rispetto alla prima edizione tedesca illustrata del 1546 che ne conteneva 477, realizzate da David Kandel. Kandel, per la maggior parte, basava le sue silografie su quelle di Fuchs e Brunfels, ma le nuove tavole sono totalmente originali ed includono anche alcune deliziose scene di genere nella raffigurazione degli alberi (sono state aggiunte figure di uomini e di animali). Hieronymus Bock (1498 - 1554) è considerato uno dei padri tedeschi della botanica moderna assieme a Brunfels e a Fuchs e fu tra i primi a cercare di classificare le piante che, nel suo ?De Stirpium?, divide in tre libri o classi: il primo contiene le erbe selvatiche o fiori odoriferi; il secondo i trifogli e le graminacee; il terzo gli alberi e gli arbusti. Nella sua trattazione delle piante allora conosciute, i vegetali, oltrechè fedelmente raffigurati, vengono accuratamente descritti anche nel loro habitat, con l?indicazione della località, ecc. Questa prima ediz. latina contiene nella prefazione un importante contributo di Conrad Gessner (amico di Bock) in cui fa la storia completa della botanica fino ai suoi tempi, oltre a fornire una bibliografia di scrittori di botanica, considerata la prima in questo campo. L?edizione termina con un commento e la ristampa dell?"Index" di Dioscoride, fatto da Benedetto Tessier. Cfr. Pritzel,867 - Nissen,183 - Brunet,I, p. 1023 - Cat. of the Library British Museum, I, p. 182 - Biographie Universelle (1881),IV, p. 629 - 632. Leggerm. corto del margine sup.; nel vol. I°, prime 4 cc. restaur. per picc. manc., mentre la p. 537 (per manc. di cm. 10x7,5) è stata restaur. con sapiente trascriz. del testo su 15 righe (al verso solo su 3 righe); alc. cc. restaur. per picc. manc. all?ang. infer.; con qualche alone margin. più o meno lieve in entrambi i volumi. Malgrado questi difetti è un buon esemplare.

Desde 1523 estuvo implicado en un episodio de obsesión de tipo espiritual con Francisca Hernández que fue arrestada por la Inquisición en 1529 y que Ortiz pudo denunciar en Toledo en el púlpito de San Juan de los Reyes en 1529. Arrestado, el fraile argumento que sólo la autoridad de Dios le habia llevado a predicar ese sermón. Su herejía era la de proclamar la supremacía absoluta de su conciencia lo cual era visto como peligroso por la autoridad y germen de rebelión.El Santo oficio le acusa de predicar que cristo está mas presente en el alma de los justos que en el Santisimo sacramento del altar. Su posición se puede condensar como en una mezcla de posiciones erasmistas, luteranas y alumbradas con una voluntad clara de volver a las escrituras para interpretarlas y confluir en una espiritualidad antidogmática donde cada hombre individualmente busca a Dios.

Examples include: compass roses, cherubs, coats of arms, mannerist style decoration, prominent town plans, stylish calligraphy and well defined regional physical features. John Speed&#39;s maps proved so popular that they were issued for many years after his death. This decorative and attractive example is of the Welsh county of Caernarvonshire..

        [In Greek:] DEMEGORIAI. [then in Latin] HOC EST, CONCIONES ALIQUOT EX LIBRIS XENOPHONTIS EDE PÆDIA CYRI [i.e., CYROPAEDIA]. [bound with] AESOP. AESOPI PHRYGIS FABULAE GRAECE ET LATINE: CUM ALIIS OPUSCULIS. [bound with] CEBES (Supposed Author). [In Greek:] KEBETOS THEBAIOU PINAX. [then in Latin] CEBETIS THEBANI TABULA

      Basileae: Ex Officina Ioannis Oporini, March 1552; Tubingae: Per Ulrichum Morhardum, 1546; Parisiis: Apud Joannem Lodo[v]icum Tiletanum, 1545. n. Hardcover. A Rare and Remarkably Well-Preserved Example of a 16th Century Binding for an Impecunious Scholar. 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&#39;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&#39;s well-known "Fables," composed in the 6th century B.C., the present volume contains Xenophon&#39;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&#39;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.
