(Lando, Ortensio):
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, … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

ALESSANDRO DI TRALLE (527-565 d. C.) - AR RAZI (Persia, 865 - 923 d. C. ca.)
Legatura coeva in piena pergamena floscia; ai labbri dei piatti, tracce di due bindelle deperdite; punti in pelle allumata alle cerniere, dorso liscio recante primo autore e titolo vergati due volte a penna, sia da mano coeva che da mano settecentesca. (8) - 247 - (1) carte numerate, compreso il frontespizio con marca tipografica silografata; al recto dell'ultima carta non numerata, registro, altra versione della marca e dati tipografici. Testo in lingua latina e carattere prevalentemente tondo con richiami marginali; alcuni bei capilettera abitati. L'opera è una pregevole edizione veneziana di due trattati medici assai diffusi in Europa, nella traduzione latina dal greco. Il primo trattato, composto di 12 libri, è un'opera di terapeutica del greco Alessandro di Tralle, maestro di medicina a Roma, esponente dell'indirizzo pratico eclettico. Segue, dalla carta 233 / verso, il trattatello De pestilentia, composto dal medico, filosofo e scienziato musulmano Ar - Razi, conosciuto in Occidente con la forma latinizzata Rhazes o Razes. Il catalogo della Bibliotheca Walleriana scheda un esemplare della stessa edizione veneziana, riportando però che al fondo del volume vi è la data 1552 al posto di 1555; l'esemplare in esame, invece, reca l'anno 1555 sia al frontespizio che all'ultima carta. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; contenuta usura alla legatura; leggere gore d'umidità all'interno.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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. 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 de … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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]

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).
