DONI, Anton Francesco (1513-1574)
Quattro parti in un volume in 4to (mm 207x150); 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). Collazione: A-X4; Aa-Pp4; a4 B-X4; AA-MM4. 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.

MUNSTER, Sebastian.
Basle: Henri Petri, 1552, Latin edition. Woodcut, sheet 300 x 385mm. Minor repairs at centre fold, otherwise an excellent example. Munster's landmark map, the first to attempt to show America as a continent, yet demonstrating how little was known. On the map a narrow isthmus divides the Atlantic and Pacific in the region of the Carolinas, based on Verrazzano, and Yucatan is an island. The large island of Zipangri off the west coast is not California but Japan, based on the narrative of Marco Polo but a few years before any recorded visit to the islands by Europeans. The large vignette ship is the 'Victoria', the only survivor of Magellan's fleet of four. This is an example of the 6th state of 13, published in Munster's 'Geographia', the only printing with the longitude and latitude grid and the only dated edition (underneath Petri's colophon on the reverse), sixty years after Columbus's discovery of the New World. BURDEN: 12.

[Cid] Don Rodrigo de Vivar.
Amongst the most significant pieces of Spanish literature ever printed, an early edition, second edition of this text -arguably the best-, extremely rare as most of the early ones; the first edition of the legend of the Cid was printed in 1498 and is known in only one copy, a second edition was printed in 1509, but no copy is known today; in 1512 an edition is printed in Burgos after a manuscript found in San Pedro de Cardeña, a Benedictine monastery and the Cid´s resting place, allegedly contemporary to the Kinght: the text was edited by abbot Juan López de Velorado, and is the text which is here printed, which includes the genealogy of the Cid in the last 13 leaves, not present in earlier editions. All of the editions of the first half of the 16thcentury follow the text of 1498, rather than the text edited by Lopez de Velorado, in a way making this the second edition of this text (the 1516 edition mentioned by Palau could be a ghost, and is not known in any copies to our knowledge), and the Burgos edition of 1512 being virtually impossible to acquire. In all, this is a more complete version than that of 1498. Title printed in red and black within 4-piece woodcut border surroundings woodcut of the Cid on horseback; round gothic letter in double columns. The work narrates the life and deeds of the 11th century Castilian Knight and soldier "Cid" Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar (c.1040 - 1099), an important figure during the Reconquista -the Spanish effort to push the Moors out of occupied Spain- in medieval Spain and the undisputed hero of Castille; he gained fame and pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

MUNSTER, Sebastian.
Basle, Henri Petri, 1552, Latin text edition. Woodcut, sheet 300 x 375mm. Munster's famous map of Africa, the first atlas map to show the whole continent, apart from the tip of the Horn. A one-eyed giant is seated over Nigeria, representing the mythical tribe of the 'Monoculi', and an elephant fills southern Africa. Also marked are several kingdoms, including that of Prester John, and 'Meroë', capital of Kush in Nubia. The large text box contains a guide for sailing from Cadiz to Calecut in India. This example comes from the last edition of the 'Geographia', the only printing with the longitude and latitude bars. The map continued to appear in the 'Cosmographia' until 1578. A new map based on Ortelius appeared in 1588. BETZ: 3, variant 9.

Tarentino Secondo
Venice, Giovanno Andrea Valvassori called Guadagnino, 1552. no copies in America 8vo (155x99 mm). 76 leaves. Signatures: A-I8 K4. Italic type. Printer's device on title page. With 5 half-page woodcut illustrations and 5 historiated initials at the beginning of each canto. Green morocco binding signed by Bauzonnet-Trautz, panels within triple gilt fillets, spine with five raised bands and gilt title, inside gilt dentelles, marbled endleaves, gilt edges (corners and joints slightly worn). Small stain in the outer margin of the first and last leaf. On the title page the ownership entry "Bibliotheca Sedanensis" (the library of the Protestant Academy of Sedan was founded in 1607 under the leadership of Prince Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne and was dispersed in 1642 after the French annexation of Sedan). A very good copy from the library of Guglielmo Libri (Cat. 1847, no. 1096: "édition originale et très rare, que Melzi n'a jamais pu voir"). EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITION (the work was reprinted by Guadagnino in 1562 and again by Domenico Imberti in 1619 and 1623). Little is known about the life and figure of Secondo Tarentino. The poem, composed in ottava rima, is dedicated to Francesco Colonna, who was archbishop of Taranto between 1544 and 1560. Tarentino was probably at the service of Colonna, whose family is celebrated in a poem printed on the title-page verso as well as throughout the work. The Bradamante gelosa, in its elaborated plot full of action and adventure, is a celebration of human folly which overturns traditional chivalric values.

BOCK, Hieronymus.
Tradotto da David Kyber. Strassburg, Wendel Rihel, 1552. in-4, ff. (34), pp. 1200, ff. (32), preziosa legatura coeva in pelle di scrofa su assicelle in legno, dorso a nervi, piatti adorni di vari ordini di bordure a secco, tracce di fermagli. Prima edizione latina, e seconda illustrata, accresciuta di quasi 100 silografie rispetto all'edizione del 1546 fino a giungere a 568 legni. Bock è considerato uno dei padri tedeschi della botanica moderna e fu tra i primi a cercare di classificare le piante. La particolarità della sua opera è da individuarsi nel modo sistematico di descrivere le piante basato sull'osservazione a prima vista. Nel 1539 uscì la prima edizione non illustrata ma già comprensiva della classificazione delle piante in famiglie; la presente comprende 568 silografie a mezza pagina, tratte per lo più dai disegni di Kandel, Fuchs, Brunfels; mentre le aggiunte testuali di Tessier e Gessner comprendono il primo tentativo di una bibliografia botanica. Bell'esemplare, in gran parte in buono stato di conservazione, malgrado alcuni piccoli difetti abilmente restaurati (porzione del titolo in alto a destra restaurata, con alcune lettere anticamente rifatte a mano, e strappo restaurato alla pag. 203), con illustri provenienze manoscritte sulla sguardia e sul titolo: "ex Bibliotheca Fischeriana", dedica di C.

Artist: Speed John ( - 1629) London; issued in: London; date: ca 1676, 1552. - technic: Copper print; colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 40 x 50,5; - description: Map shows the western part of Russia, on inset map a city map of Moskow, and a city view of the fortress Narva an Archangel. - 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.

Guillaume GUEROULT (1507-1569)
Guillaume Guéroult (1507-1569) dirigeva a Lione la stamperia del cognato Balthazar Arnoullet (1517-1556), presso il quale stampò nel 1552 il Premier livre des figure set pourtraitz des villes plus illustre set renommées d'Europe, contenente 9 immagini urbane, perlopiù copiate dalla Cosmographia di Sebastian Muenster. Questo esemplare proviene dall'opera che il Guéroult e Arnouellet pubblicarono l'anno seguente, nel 1553, con il titolo di Epitome de la Corographie d'Europe, illustré de pourtraitz des villes plus renomées d'icelle. Le vedute urbane furono incrementate a 21 e aggiunte alcune carte geografiche. Le matrici furono ristampate poi da Bonhomme (1557), Dupinet (1564) e Belleforest (1575). Xilografia, in buono stato di conservazione. Rarissima. "Taken from the very rare ""Epitome De la Corographie d'Europe, illustre des pourtraitz des Villes plus renommees d'icelle"" published by Arnoullet in 1553. The plate are copied form the Munster's Cosmographia and was reprinted by Dupinet (1564) and Belleforest (1575). Woodcut, good condition. Very rare."

Giacomo GASTALDI (1500 circa - 1565 circa)
Incisione in rame, acquaforte e bulino, 1552, firmata e datata in lastra in mezzo a sinistra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "Leone" (Woodward 37, indicata come tipica della tipografia di Giolito), con ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Incisa da Enea Vico. Rara ed importante mappa della Germania, nel suo primo stato. La mappa deriva dalla collaborazione tra il Gastaldi e Giolito de Ferrari, due piemontesi attivi a Venezia. Dal punto di vista cartografico, è basata sulla carta dell'area - andata perduta - di Heinrich Zell, realizzata nel 1549 o 1550. La sua forma trapezoidale, ricorda le carte della Geographia di Tolomeo, opera della quale Gastaldi realizzò una versione "tascabile" nel 1548. La mappa è assolutamente ricca di toponimi, ed influenzò tutta la cartografia del XVI secolo relativa alla zona, venendo più volte ristampata ed aggiornata. Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari è uno dei più attivi e conosciuti stampatori veneziani del XVI secolo, e può essere considerato il miglior rappresentante di quel rinnovamento dei caratteri, nel senso di una maggiore leggerezza ed eleganza, che verso il 1540 si era diffuso nelle tipografie veneziane, soprattutto nelle stamperie nuove (quelle di F. Marcolini, M. Tramezzino, Comin da Trino, V. Valgrisi, G. Grifio). Giacomo Gastaldi ebbe il grande merito di utilizzare e diffondere nel campo della cartografia la tecnica dell'acquaforte, che consentiva all'incisore di realizzare disegni molto più precisi e nitidi, favorendone una lettura più agevole. Quasi tutti i cartografi antecedenti avevano, i … [Click Below for Full Description]

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

Aeschylus.
Ex officina Adriani Turnebi Typographi Regii, 1552. First Turnèbe edition of Aeschylus' complete works, here with a dedication by the French humanist himself and a two-page "Bios Aischylou tou poietou," following the first Aldine edition of 1518. Adrien Turnèbe (1512-65) was chair of Greek at the College Royal in France and succeeded Robert Estienne as Royal Printer for Greek (although his appointment was contested by Charles Estienne). Here, according to Dibdin, he "very materially" corrected the Aldine text, and added a table of various readings. The text is printed in mostly single columns using the "Cicero" Greek font of Garamond's grecs du roi, with foliated headpieces and decorative initials at the start of each section and Turnèbe's basilisk device on the title-page; this offering is the variant with A3 and A4 signed. Following the editio princeps, "Agamemnon" and "Choephori" are conflated. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear of both book and housing.

From Speed's 'Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts Of The World'. Includes birds-eye views of Cracow, Dantzick, Posna, Crossen, Sandomiria and Breslaw across the top and indigenous costumes of a Polonian Gentleman and Gentlewoman Polonian Man and Woman, 2 coats of arms, a Silesian Woman and Bride and Dantsick Maid and Bride on the sides. - 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.

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.
