        P. TERENTII AFRI POETAE LEPIDISSIMI, COMOEDIA

      Apud Ioannem de Roigny, Parisiis 1552 - 325 x 210 mm. (12 3/4 x 8 1/4"). 1 p.l. (title), 776 pp., [20] leaves (last blank). [Collates as in Adams and Schweiger]. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY CALF over thick pasteboards, covers with painted black and gilt rule frame, center of both boards with large, elaborate rectangular strapwork ornament in black and gilt, flat spine divided into panels by gilt rules and cresting roll, three spine panels with black and gilt ornament (similar to those on the covers), one panel with gilt titling inside an escutcheon, all edges gilt (the joints, edges, and portions of the spine at top and bottom very expertly renewed). Numerous fine "criblé" and other decorative initials and 145 woodcut scenes measuring approximately 2 x 3" (some of the cuts repeated). Front pastedown with "HB" book label of Heribert Boeder; title page with ink inscription of Johann Adolph Freitag dated 1653 and with library stamp of the College of Notre Dame, Villefranche sur Saone. Adams E-1033; Dibdin II, 470; Hoffman II, 68-69; Mortimer 512; Schweiger II, 1060. Spine a bit faded and discolored in spots, color of the cover leather a bit uneven, two pages with ink stain touching (but not obscuring) a word of text, isolated rust spots, but a very pleasing copy, the text unusually fresh, clean, and bright, and the carefully restored binding completely solid and certainly pleasing, despite its faults. This is a large-format illustrated printing of the "Comedies," bound in a more restrained version of the painted entrelac bindings in vogue in 16th century, a binding tall and dignified enough to suit its contents. Dibdin describes this as "a most excellent edition" that contains "almost all the valuable treatises upon the author up to the period of its publication" and notes that "it is of rare occurrence." (There were two issues of this 1552 edition; our colophon, dated to 17 Calendas Decembris, Anno 1551, indicates that we have the first.) Terence's six extant plays, the ancestors of drawing room and modern situation comedies, feature crusty fathers, rebellious sons, and impertinent slaves whose machinations solve the playwright's intricate complications of plot. The plays were popular throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, and still retain their appeal. The text of the plays, in large and attractive italic type, is surrounded here by the commentary (in smaller italic) of Donatus (fourth century A.D.) and others. Each scene is preceded by a woodcut depicting the actors on a curtained stage. While very simple in composition, these are animated and frequently amusing. According to Mortimer, our text and scholarly apparatus are mostly reprinted from Girolamo Scoto's Venice edition of 1545, and the scene cuts "are extremely close copies of the Italian blocks used by Scoto."

        Der Rechten Spiegel, auß natürlichem, den bschribnen, gaistlichen, weltlichen, und andern gebreuchlichen Rechten [.] zugericht.

      Frankfurt, Christian Egenolff, (1552). - Folio (195 x 288 mm). (4), CCLXXV [= 275] ff. (lacking final blank). With large armorial woodcut on title page, two different full-page portraits of the author, full-page illillustration of an arbor consanguinitatis, and 36 woodcuts in the text by Hans Weiditz and Hans Schäufelein. Early 20th century vellum, bound to style using contemporary material, with handwritten spine title. 4 ties. Second edition of this encompassing and abundantly illustrated manual of law in the Holy Roman Empire. Göbler's "Mirror of Laws" superseded the earlier collections compiled by Tengler, Perneder and others, incorporating new legal texts and often adding helpful commentaries. The work gained particular importance through the numerous fine illustrations which most reimpressions chose to omit but which make the present edition one of the most beautiful and most splendidly outfitted legal treatises of the 16th century, as well as one of the finest woodcut books of its age. The Strasbourg artist Hans Weiditz (1500-36) and his Nuremberg colleague Hans Schäufelein (1480-1540), two of the outstanding woodcutters of their day, had previously collaborated on the "Theuerdank" and "Weißkunig" books commissioned by Emperor Maximilian I. - Binding insignificantly stained. A few remargined edge defects to title page, some browning and very slight waterstaining throughout, otherwise very few noticeable paper flaws. Somewhat closely trimmed, occasionally touching woodcut borders and printed marginal glosses with minimal loss, but altogether a very fine copy from the library of the Frankfurt Banker Heinrich Stiebel (1851-1928), dispersed by auction in 1929 by Joseph Baer (this copy: vol. 2, no. 179), with his etched bookplate (showing a view of Frankfurt) and shelfmark "4466" on the pastedown. VD 16, G 2314. Stintzing/Landsberg I, 584. Benzing, Egenolff, 313.

To Gregorio Stendardi (known as Capitano Goro da Montebenichi) in Montepulciano, a condottiere of the first half of the century who had fought under Cosimo's father Lodovico de Medici (Giovanni dalle Bande Nere) and had entered the services of the Medici family. Cosimo recommends governors Don Garzia and Ascanio, promising to assist Goro and pay any expenditures but requesting that he keep the matter confidential. Also, Cosimo instructs Goro to take weapons to Siena county and store them in a castle for future return: "Strenuo Cap[ita]no nostro car[issi]mo, li avisi de la vostra de xxv ci sono stati molto accetti per esser molto particolari et verisimili, et come per la precedente vi habiamo scritto, ci sar

Two small old handwritten notes on the back of clxix slip.Binding post (XVII) in full fawn calf, back with five nerves decorated with richly grotesque, underlined boards from two frames of double gold striping and four golden jewels in spandrels, as in pen on the first contreplat.Some clever restorations. A small restoration of paper under the back frontispiece marginal minor bites on the margins of some leaves in the beginning and end of volume.Editing comments Denis Savage valuable because it marks an improvement over the previous edition faulty or incomplete in the second part until 1528 (edition of Enguilbert of Marnef). As he explains in the royal epistle, Denis Sauvage, a great admirer of Philippe de Commines, "the most excellent historians François voz or equal to the best in all other languages" [sic], aims here give critical version corrected his memoirs, based on a manuscript.It is in the version reviewed by Sauvage the memoirs will be published until 1661 until that of Theodore and Denis Godefroy (1649) come to compete, then replace it.This is certainly the first time that the term "memory" is used in the sense of "chronic".Very nice copy of this rare edition of Memoirs.

        Picta poesis. Ut pictura poesis erit.

      Lyon, Mathieu Bonhomme, 1552. ____ Première édition latine. (Une édition française a été publiée le même mois). Illustré par 106 jolies gravures, probablement sur cuivre, attribuées à Pierre Eskrich dit aussi Pierre Vase. Barthélemy Aneau a traduit les emblèmes d'Alciat en 1549 et, ayant cet ouvrage en tête, il composa des poésies pour accompagner les gravures qui se trouvaient chez Mathieu Bonhomme. Une cinquantaine avait déjà servi à illustrer l'Ovide de Marot, d'autres ont été gravées pour cet ouvrage. L'une d'elles montre la corruption des magistrats. Cette vignette a été retirée dans les éditions suivantes. Baudrier remarque que les vignettes et le texte de ce livre "sont très libres pour un ouvrage dédié à un évêque et que l'auteur s'y révèle sous son véritable jour." On remarque aussi page 75 une vignette montrant une scène de jeu de paume. Très bel exemplaire, la reliure n'est pas signée mais est manifestement l'oeuvre d'un grand relieur français du milieu du XIXe. Baudrier, Bibliographie lyonnaise 10, 227. Brun, Le livre français illustré de la Renaissance 111. Mortimer, Harvard 25. Brunet 4, 634 : "Recherché à cause des jolies gravures sur bois." ***** First edition in latin (a French edition was published the same month). Illustrated by 106 emblems, probably from copper blocks rather than wood after the designs of Pierre Eskrich also known as Pierre Vase. Aneau had translated the Alciati emblems in 1549 and with the emblem book format in mind he composed the 'Picta poesis' verses chiefly to suits cuts found in Bonhomme's general stock. Nearly half the emblems are based on woodblocks designed to illustrate Ovid's Metamorphoses. The others were engraved for this book. One, showing the corruption of the magistrates, was removed in the following editions. Page 75 bears a very early illustration of tennis. Very fine copy, bound in France in the middle of 19th century. In-12.

Elle est suivie d'un court traité anonyme, De rebus bellicis, qui suggère plusieurs inventions propres à la défense, à la prospérité et au progrès de l'Empire ; on y trouve notamment l'idée, pour la toute première fois formulée, de propulser un bateau sans rame ni voile, grâce à l'invention d'une roue à auges, qui inspirera Léonard de Vinci.

L'ouvrage est abondamment illustré de beaux bois gravés représentant des médailles, des vues de monuments, des allégories des provinces de l'Empire, l'arsenal militaire, etc ; deux sont signés du monogramme CS (province de Palestine au ff. h2 v°. ; Italia Illyricum Africa au ff. i1 r°.), pour Conrad Schnitt ou Christoph Schweytzer (c.f. : Nagel, Die Monogrammisten IV, n° 3987) ; quelques autres bois sont attribuables à l'atelier de Hans Rudolf Manuel-Deutsch.

        Norfolk a county florishing and populus descript and devided with the arms of such nobel families as have born the titels Therof

      Artist: Speed John ( - 1629 ) London; issued in: ; date: 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 - 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.

First edition, dedicated to Julius III, whose coat of arms is displayed on title-page. Nucula describes the assault of Giovanni de Vega and Andrea Doria against the famous Ottoman Greek pirate Dragut (Thorgoud Rais 1485-1565): under his control, the Ottoman Empire's maritime power was extended from North African coasts to Sicily. In this work, the author provides first-hand information about the battle of Afrodisia, the Tunisian harbour where the Turkish fleet was destroyed; the double-page woodcut geographic map is really interesting. It is worth mentioning the elegance of the italic font used here by brothers Valerio and Luigi Dorico from Brescia, talented engravers and printers active in Rome between 1538 and 1559: they ideally carried on the distinguished tradition of Roman typography Rome earlier represented by Lodovico degli Arrighi and Lautitio Perugino.

        Tabula Asiae VIII

      Basel: Heinrich Petri, 1552. unbound. Map. Uncolored woodcut. Sheet measures 12.5" x 16". This 1552 map of central Asia by Sebastian Munster is also one of the most famous monster maps of the 16th century. Spans northward from India and the Ganges River. Cartographically based on Claudius Ptolemy's "Geographia", the map includes the Ganges, Schythia, the Anthropophagi region and China. The regions of Scythia Intra Imaum and Scythia Extra Imaun are identified. The region of Scythia, as it was known during the time of the Roman Empire covers the whole of Northern Asia, divided by Mount Imaum. The Himalayas appear across the lower half of the map with Mount Imaum extending northward.<br><br>Perhaps the most interesting feature of this map are the illustrations of mythological monsters surrounding the map proper. These include a one legged bird being hunted, and medieval creatures that are based upon reports and myths dating to the early age of European travel into the East, prior to Marco Polo's journey into Asia in the 13th century. The top right of the map features cannibals dismembering a corpse.<br><br>This map appeared in Muster's 1552 Latin edition of Ptolemy's 'Geographia'. Verso features an explanation in Latin with a decorative woodcut border, probably cut by the famous 16th century woodcutter Hans Holbein, Few, if any, of the borders are repeated and are mainly allegoric scenes, coats of arms or initials. The map is in good condition with minor wear and toning along the original centerfold. Minor foxing at places. <br><br>Professor Sebastian Munster (1488-1552) was a German cosmographer, humanist, theologian and scholar. His seminal work "Cosmographia" was published in numerous languages and is considered the most popular book of the 16th century. Furthermore, Munster is also credited with contributing to a revival of geography in Germany. This map is a fine example of his work.

        The Province of Ulster described with inset of "Enis Kelling Fort on Lough Farne", title cartouche and Scale cartouche showing "The Scale of Irish Miles".

      Original engraving. The engraving (the plate) itself 51.2 cm wide x 38.3 cm wide. Mounted: ca 71 cm wide x 57 cm high. Excellent condition of this early, uncoloured Speed map of Ulster. Two tiny holes in outer margins only. John Speed (1552 28 July 1629) was an English cartographer and historian. He is known as England's most famous Stuart period mapmaker. Speed was born at Farndon, Cheshire, and went into his father's tailoring business. While working in London, his knowledge of history led him into learned circles and he came to the attention of Sir Fulke Greville, who subsequently made him an allowance to enable him to devote his whole attention to research. As a reward for his earlier efforts, Queen Elizabeth granted Speed the use of a room in the Custom House. His atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine was published in 1610/11, and contained the first set of individual county maps of England and Wales besides maps of Ireland [five in all] and a general map of Scotland. Most, but not all, of the county maps have town plans on them those showing a Scale of Passes being the places he had mapped himself. In 1627, two years before his death, Speed published Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World which was the first world atlas produced by an Englishman. There is a fascinating text describing the areas shown on the back of the maps in English, although a rare edition of 1616 of the British maps has a Latin text - this is believed to have been produced for the Continental market. 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. He is buried with his wife in St Giles-without-Cripplegate church, Fore Street within the Barbican Estate in the City of London. A memorial to John Speed was also erected behind the altar of the church. According to the church's website, "[His was] one of the few memorials [in the church] that survived the bombing" of London during The Blitz of 19401941 ... The website also notes that "[t]he cast for the niche in which the bust is placed was provided by the Merchant Taylors' Company, of which John Speed was a member." His memorial brass has ended up on display in the Burrell Collection near Glasgow. It was with the encouragement of William Camden that Speed began his Historie of Great Britaine, which was published in 1611.[7] Although he probably had access to historical sources that are now lost to us (he certainly used the work of Saxton and Norden), 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. In 1627 George Humble published the Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World, printed by John Dawson. This is the world map from this atlas with John Speed's name in the title, but not attributed to Speed's authorship. In 1611, he also published The genealogies recorded in the Sacred Scriptures according to euery family and tribe with the line of Our Sauior Jesus Christ obserued from Adam to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a biblical genealogy, reprinted several times during the 17th century.

Small 4to, attractive speckled half-calf & speckled boards, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: G. Cavellat, 1552. First separate edition; first published in 1496 as part of a larger work, and several times reprinted in that form, including once by Estienne in 1514. This is study of the mathematical theory of music, by the great French humanist, theologian, and commentator on Aristotle, Lefèvre d'Étaples (ca. 1455-1537). "He went no further than Boethius, but he made clearer divisions and gave a full commentary to each principle. Unlike Boethius, he succeeded in showing that the small semitone is larger than three Pythagorean commas and smaller than four, using calculations of 33 digits…Faber was more concerned with the mathematical laws of music than with performing skills. Many music theorists of the 16th century to the 18th either referred to Faber or quoted him."-New Grove, Vol. 6, p. 345. Fine condition.

        I Marmi del Doni, Academico Peregrino. Al Mag.co et Eccellente S. Antonio da Feltro dedicati.

      Quattro parti in un volume in 4to, pergamena floscia coeva con al centro dei piatti le armi impresse a secco del sesto figlio di re Giorgio III d'Inghilterra, titolo manoscritto sul dorso e al taglio inferiore (un po' sporca ed arricciata, piccola mancanza alla cuffia inferiore), pp. 167, (1) + pp. 119, (1) + pp. 166, (2) + pp. 93, (3). Marche tipografiche di vario tipo sui frontespizi e al verso dell'ultima carta di ciascuna sezione. Con complessive 44 figure in legno nel testo, fra cui i ritratti del Doni, del Marcolini, del Gelli e del Petrarca. A p. 81 della quarta parte si trova riprodotto il frontespizio degli Inferni, di cui si annuncia l'imminente pubblicazione (1553) e si fornisce un sommario dei contenuti, si tratta probabilmente del primo esempio nella storia della stampa di lancio editoriale di un'opera attraverso la riproduzione del titolo della stessa all'interno di un altro libro. Segno di tarlo abilmente restaurato nel margine bianco delle prime carte, primo titolo un po' sporco, per il resto ottima copia genuina, proveniente dalla biblioteca del principe August Frederick, duca di Sussex (1773-1843).PRIMA EDIZIONE. "Le quattro parti de' Marmi suddetti, se bene abbiano frontespizj, dedicatorie, numerazioni e registri separati, tuttavolta formano un sol volume.. Si può credere che ogni parte dell'opera venisse pubblicata disgiuntamente, e che ne fosse cominciata la stampa nel settembre del 1552 ed avesse fine ne' primi giorni di gennaro 1553. L'edizione è eseguita coi due soliti caratteri corsivi del Marcolini.. Le opere del Doni generalmente furono più volte ristampate, ma di questa de' Marmi non se ne conosce che due sole edizioni, la sopradescritta originale, e quella di Venetia pressio Gio. Battista Bertoni, 1609.. I ragionamenti o dialoghi della presente opera vertono sopra soggetti di morale, di letteratura ed altro: e finse l'Autore che fossero tenuti fra persone di diverse condizioni e luoghi nelle scalee situate nella piazza di S. Liberata in Firenze, ivi dette volgarmente i Marmi" (S. Casali, Gli annali della tipografia veneziana di Francesco Marcolini, Bologna, 1953, pp. 237-238)."Anche dentro i parametri doniani i Marmi costituiscono una punta estrema di bizzarria e di lunaticità fatta di imprevedibili, sconnesse e spericolate congerie tematiche.. Dai frequenti cataloghi e dai bruschi trapassi da una meteria all'altra il lettore ricava una prima e spontanea impressione di quello sconcerto che si prova davanti al disordine più radicale, accentuato ulteriormente dalla polifonia di voci di dialoganti senza volto, convenuti a caso nella piazza fiorentina a raccontare storie e a discorrere di materie a volte astruse e a volte dozzinali, a presentare tesi che vengono accompagnate da cori di giudizi o commenti strampalati. L'immagine tradizionale di un Doni "scapigliato" e ribelle, creatore d'avanguardie e autore sfuggente, contraddittorio, sarcastico trova nei Marmi la conferma maggiore. Doni si è creata l'immagine di un autore che non vuole essere mai preso sul serio, e si può dire che nei Marmi vi sia riuscito appieno. Ma un'irregolarità così sostenuta autorizza a sospettare una posa, un compiacimento, un'operazione non priva di sistematicità e di calcolo teso in primo luogo ad occultare qualsiasi impegno di "regolarità ". E si deve ammettere che Doni sia riuscito appieno anche in questo calcolo, perché la sua immagine di scrittore bizzarro si conserva senza scalfitture.. I Marmi sono costellati di riferimenti a libri, i cui titoli sono citati spesso con approssimazione (ad esempio "La bottega del Tessitore" per l'Officina di Ravisio Testore) forse voluta per creare un tono trasandato e antipedantesco, sono farciti di citazioni di cui a volte è difficile vederne con precisione i contorni o addirittura indovinarne la lingua originale, rendendo talvolta molto difficile distinguere fra le voci autoriali e le citazioni: il tutto fa parte della scanzonata "scapigliatura" di Doni il quale, a nostro maggiore sconcerto, cita con precisione, lasciando intravvedere che anche in questa maniera domina il capriccio.. Quasi certamente la base dei Marmi è costituita da un mosaico di testi prelevati nella maggior parte da vari autori di cui normalmente si tace l'identità , per giunta i testi sono spesso tagliati e ricuciti in modo tale che anche il più smaliziato Quellenforscher avrebbe difficoltà ad identificarli. Se liberassimo questa base dalle superfetzioni e glosse doniane, avremmo una di quelle raccolta miscellanee o "selve" che furono popolarissime nel Cinquecento, ma Doni la usa come una sinopia alla quale sovrappone o intreccia commenti di dialoganti, digressioni che talvolta incorporano altre fonti, parentesi di umore a sfondo realistico, novellette, considerazioni di polemica letteraria, frecciate personali, e una serie di vari altri elementi che occultano e alterano il mosaico di fondo, rendendo difficile riconoscere i testi primari per via di una frammentazione continua e per la farcitura di elementi che dissuonano e producono mescolanze di linguaggi lontane dai criteri di decorum, e per via di altre tecniche che alimentano l'impressione di bizzarria e caoticità lunatica a tutto scapito di un'orditura lineare e robusta.. Il criterio della dispositio sconnessa si applica perfettamente ai Marmi, i quali da questo punto di vista sono una selva, cioè una raccolta di materiali privi di nessi fra loro. E sono materiali esteticamente fruibili perché sono per lo meno curiosi: curiose sono le storie e le favole, curiosi sono i soggetti del cibo, della chiromanzia, dei sogni, curiosi la vita di Arnaut Daniel e vari altri materiali ai quali se ne mescolano altri che potrebbero sembrare uggiosi, come i precetti "utili all'huomo" o alcune discussioni sull'onore. Ma per poter parlare di una "selva" affine a quella di [Pedro] Mexà&shy,a bisogna postulare che i Marmi, come la Silva [de varia leccià&sup3,n (1540)], siano ricavati tutti o almeno in gran parte da libri altrui, che siano frutto di una vera "lectio" o scelta attuata su opere varie. Questo.. è un punto cruciale, e fino a quando non si farà un lavoro sistematico sulle fonti sarà imprudente affermare senza ombra di dubbio che i Marmi siano una "selva" nel senso indicato.. Ai materiali di base Doni sovrappose ciò che è tipico del suo umore - bizzarria, riboboli, sbandate fuori tema, note dissacranti e antifrastiche, curiosità , capricci e costanti scadute tonali - e lo espresse attraverso le molte voci dei personaggi che frequentano i dialoghi dei Marmi. La combinazione creò quella dissonanza.. che mortifica l'erudizione, che invalida il sapere, che abbraccia un Seneca ma lo respinge poi come soporifero, che propone norme dietetiche a crapuloni e beoni, che sciorina informazioni cabalistiche ad allocchi. Era questo il modo con cui Doni viveva un atteggiamento culturale dei suoi tempi o almeno di quel gruppo d'avanguardia che fra gli anni '40 e '60 voltò le spalle all'Umanesimo e prese a parodiarne l'erudizione.." (P. Cherchi, La "selva" dei 'Marmi' doniani, in: "Esperienze Letterarie", a. XXVI, 2001, pp. 3-6, 9 e 35-36)."Anton Francesco Doni went beyond Franco, Domenichi, Lando, and Landi in his rejection of Cinquecento learning. The others believed that learning had declined and attacked individual humanists, but Doni argued that the studi liberali were fundamentally inadequate to teach men virtue.. His I Marmi (1552-1553), or conversations overheard in the evening on the marble steps of the Florentine cathedral, contains a dialogue in which he rejects the studi liberali. A poultry vendor, a broker, and an unidentified third person begin to discuss how to avoid vice and to foster virtue, defined the traditional terms as the love of patria, wife, and children. But the studi liberali can not teach virtue.. Grammar can teach style and poetry is important, history is 'noble', but knowledge of the lives and activities of the ancients has only a negative value, a warning to men to avoid their faults. With arithmetic and geometry one can count one's possessions, but it is of no avail if one does not divide them for charity. Neither is virtue the result of the study of Stoic or Aristotelian philosophy. Books can not teach men virtue because men have to learn from their own experience.." (P. Grendler, The Rejection of Learning in Mid-Cinquecento Italy, in: "Culture and Censorship in Late Renaissance Italy and France", London, 1981, pp. 243-244).In un passaggio interessante dell'opera il personaggio buffo Carafulla difende la teoria eliocentrica a novi soli anni di distanza dalla pubblicazione del De revolutionibus di Copernico: "Il sole non già , noi giramo, la terra è quella che si volge, non sai tu che il cielo si chiama fermamento, quando costa vanno a torno alla terra e dicono io ho girato tutta la cosmographia" (I, p.18) (cfr. M. R. Macchia, Le voci della scienza nei 'Marmi' di Anton Francesco Doni: la divulgazione scientifica fra oralità e scrittura, in: "Lo scaffale della biblioteca scientifica in volgare, secoli XIII-XVI: atti del Convegno, Matera, 14-15 ottobre 2004", a cura di R. Librandi e R. Piro, Firenze, 2006, pp. 469-484).Il fiorentino Anton Francesco Doni fu uno dei più originali poligrafi del Cinquecento. Tipografo, poeta, scrittore, disegnatore, egli produsse bizzarri manoscritti e pubblicò opere stravaganti, spesso corredate da fantasiosi apparati iconografici (Zucca, 1551-'52, Mondi, 1552, Inferno, 1553). Spirito polemico (violentissime le sue diatribe con Pietro Aretino e con Ludovico Domenichi) e girovago (soggiornò a Pavia, Milano, Piacenza, Venezia, Ancona e Pesaro, solo per citare i luoghi in cui dimorò più a lungo), si occupò con competenza ed originalità anche di critica d'arte (Disegno, 1549, Pitture, 1564). A lui si devono inoltre i primi saggi bio-bibliografici di autori italiani (Libreria, 1550 e Seconda libreria, 1551) (cf. P. Pelizzari, Nota biografica, in:" Doni, I Mondi e gli Inferni, Torino, 1994, pp. LXIX-LXXXIV).G. Rizzarelli, 'I Marmi' di Anton Francesco Doni: la storia, i generi e le arti, Firenze, 2012, passim, C.

      Frankfurt, Christian Egenolff, (1552). - Die berühmte, mit reichen Kommentaren versehene Franck'sche Sprichwörtersammlung, zuerst 1541 bei Christian Egenolff in Frankfurt erschienen. Den lat. Sprichwörtern ist jeweils eine deutsche Übersetzung, sinnverwandte deutsche Sprichwörter und eine Erklärung angeschlossen. Im Anschluss an Erasmus, Murmellius, Tunnicius, Tappe, Bebel u. a. stellt Franck eine große Zahl antiker und volksläufiger Redensarten zusammen und versieht sie mit Kommentaren. Dieses letzte große Werk Francks hatte gewaltigen Erfolg. Die Sammlung steht auch im Dienst der Entwicklung und Pflege der deutschen Sprache: "Sihe, wol reich seind wir teutschen für all Zungen! Wann wir nun unser eygen sprach koenden redten, schreiben und recht appliciren, so moecht kein zung so vil varietet und Formulas zu reden haben." "Gern würzt Franck die Rede mit volkstümlichen Bildern und Vergleichen und flicht reichlich Sprichwörter ein, gehört er doch zu den ersten, welche dieser Gassenweisheit Aufmerksamkeit schenkten und in einer oft aufgelegten und vermehrten Sammlung vereinigten . In seinen Kompilationen steckt so viel origineller Geist, daß wir uns weit unter seinen Zeitgenossen umsehen müssen, bis wir einen gleichen finden" (Stammler).
