EUSTACHIUS, Bartholomaeus.
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.

Fu definito dal Croce uno dei libri più riccamente geniali della nostra letteratura". Così Diz. Opere Bompiani,IV, pp. 813-14. Cfr. Gamba,789 che precisa: "Nel secolo XVI un Niccolò Masseti modenese ebbe la temerarietà di farsi correttore o piuttosto corruttore del poema nelle edizioni di Venezia: Sessa, 1502; M.

BRUNI Domenico.
Appresso i Giunti, In Firenze. 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.

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).

John Speed
Beautiful original hand color, latin edition. John Speed (1552-1629) John Speed is arguably the most famous cartographer of any period, as a result of his atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, the first atlas of the British Isles. The individual maps are the best known and among the most sought-after of all county maps. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up-to-date sources available; however, Speed did make innovations- introducing town plans on many of his maps, he included county boundaries on almost all maps, also the coats of arms of local Earls and Dukes and the Royal arms. The overall effect is to produce very decorative, attractive and informative maps. Speed also produced the first world atlas by an Englishman, entitled The Prospect of the most Famous Parts of the World (1627). The maps are famous for their bordering panels of national characters in local costume and panoramic views depicting the areas major towns and cities. In addition to the obvious decorative quality of the maps, regular atlas copies have two pages of English text printed on the reverse, giving a charming description of life in the early seventeenth century of the area shown.

CASAS, Bartholomeo de las.
Alden & Landis 657/17; Medina BHA,1085n; Sabin 11247. Third edition of the Italian translation by Marco Ginammi, with new dedicatory material, of the famous defense of the rights of Indians and condemnation of the Spanish cruelties in the West Indies and South America written by Bartolomé De Las Casas. The first edition of the 'Tratado... sobre la materia de los Yndios', the sixth of the famous Nine Tracts relating to Indian rights was published in Seville, 1552. Bartholomeus de Las Casas (1474-1566), priest in San Domingo from 1510, and bishop of Chiapa, Mexico from 1544 to 1550, was a warm defender of Indian rights against the Spanish oppression. With vigour, he took actions against slavery and colonisation of the Indians and intended to transport black slaves from Africa to replace the weaker Indians, but the Spanish colonists successfully obstructed these plans. The original Spanish text and the Italian translation are printed in two parallel columns. The tract contains arguments citing judicial authority as well as scriptural reasoning as to why natives should be restored to freedom.Fine, uncut copy.

It later appeared in the equally rare collection of Macropedius's plays Omnes fabulae comicae, published by the same Utrecht publisher in 1552-1553.Macropedius's comedies and tragedies, inspired by the plays of Plautus and Terence, are outstanding specimens of Renaissance Latin school drama.

SANTAREM, Pedro de.
Venice: Balthazar Constantini, 1552. Small octavo, ff. 52, [7]; printer's device to title; a little light spotting in places, else a fine copy in recent vellum, ink lettering to spine. Housed in a black solander case. First edition of the first printed book on insurance. The work was frequently reprinted in the 16th century with Stracca's De Mercatura and further separate editions appeared well into the 17th, but the first edition is extremely rare, RLIN locating the Harvard copy only, to which OCLC adds another, at the University of Sassari, Italy. This legal treatise by the Portuguese lawyer, Pedro de Santarem (Petrus Santerna) is "a clear example of how a regulatory and juridical work may provide an answer to the practical needs of a historical period. The renewal of mercantile activities, the increasing number of vessels in transit, the poor conditions in which they sometimes sailed (poorly stowed or excessive cargo), the increasing frequency of shipwrecks arising human or natural causes, in short the uncertainty and unpredictability inherent in ocean crossings, fully justified the widespread, rationalised practice of an insurance activity" (Antonio Almodovar & Jose Luis Cardoso, History of Portuguese Economic Thought, 2002). Maritime insurance contracts predated Santarem's treatise, having been developed in the mid-14th century in Genoa, as well as Portugal. "Santarem laid down with remarkable precision the principal foundations of the assurance contract: that it is a contract drawn in complete good faith and that it is not a way for the assured to get rich, but only f … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Petrarca, Francesco (Petrarch)
Venice: Domenico Giglio, 1552. Venice: Domenico Giglio, 1552. Hard cover. Very Good/A typical mid-century edition of Petrarch, with the humanist commentary of Alessandro Velutello, and woodcut illustrations of the Triumphs featuring allegorical figures of love, death, fame, and so on, in their chariots, surrounded by their attendants. In 1595, the literary critic Pope Clement VIII issued a ban on the three sonnets in which Petrarch likens Avignon (the Papal residence at the time). For several years, printers were forbidden from including them in editions of Petrarch’s Canzoniere, and it was expected that the sonnets would be eliminated from existing manuscripts and printed books. In this copy, an early owner complied by fiercly inking over each line and letter of those three sonnets. Interesting!. Octavo (15cm); [8], 317, [3] leaves. Woodcut device on title page, six woodcut illustrations, one at the head of each of the "Trionfi." Bound in early 20th century stiff vellum in period style (dated 1910), lettered in manuscript on spine. Text block mildly toned, but clean and free of blemishes, save the vigorous censorship of the three "Babylonian Sonnets," which are heavily crossed out in iron-gall ink, which has burned away some of the paper on two leaves (a milder example is shown in the Yale University Library's online "Petrarch Gallery," #7).

Oeuvre morale et politique à l'usage des puissants, donnant un portrait pessimiste de l'homme et du prince, les Mémoires de Philippe de Commynes fixaient, avant Machiavel dont il est souvent proche, les règles de la résussite politique et l'art d'arriver à ses fins.

MUNSTER, Sebastian
Basel, 1552. unbound. Map. Uncolored woodcut. Image measures 11.5" x 14.75". Unusual early woodcut map of the Transylvanian Alps showing part of the Carpathian mountains, including part of Moldova, and Bulgaria. Features great mountain renderings as well as many rivers in this beautiful region including Olt, Mures and the Bistrita river. According to L. Grof, this map was based on Johannes Honter's 1532 map of the region which was the first separate issue map of the area. Professor Sebastian Munster (1488-1552) was a German cosmographer, humanist, theologian and scholar. This map was not in every edition of Munster's seminal work "Geographia Universalis" and is therefore extremely rare. Light scattered foxing and toning along original centerfold. Three worm holes near the top of the map and a stain in the title. Full original margins.
