        PLACITORUM SUMMAE APUD GALLOS CURIAE. LIBRI XII.

      Paris, Charles Etienne, Lutetius, Apud Caroluim Stephanum, Typographum Regium, 1553. FIRST EDITION, 1553, Latin text. Folio, 335 x 235 mm, 13¼ x 9¼ inches, large pictorial device of the printer Charles Estienne on title page, woodcut headpiece and large initial to first page of text, pages 316, (2) - errata, with 12 pages of prelims included in the pagination and only partially numbered, rebound in full modern calf, gilt lettered morocco label to spine, blind decoration to covers. Extra old paper leaf inserted before the title page with a very early 5 line note in French on the author, ex libris inscription on title page (one word crossed out), title page slightly dusty in the margins, 1 very small closed tear to lower edge, very pale brown stain to lower inner edge of first 4 leaves, larger slightly stronger damp stain in same position, still affecting margin only, from page 133-161, and again paler and smaller from page 193 to the end, occasional very slight pale foxing, very small ink mark to a couple of margins, otherwise clean and bright. A very good copy of a rare French law book. A compendium of condensed decisions ('placita'), mixed with commentary, made by the supreme court in France (the Parisian Parliament) on ecclesiastical matters, the king and the nobility, the courts and the practice and implementation of law, civil life, and criminal justice. The "placita," dated (from 14th century to the author's time) but not quoted verbatim, are organised by subject and cover such miscellany as the ban on selling masks, the rights of bakers, commercial loans, Gallican church independence, marriage forced by rape, protections for surgeon's apprentices, etc. Book XI includes a section on the laws governing public auctions. The manuscript note in French at the front informs that the author Jean du Luc was first prosecutor at the Parliament of Paris and afterwards prosecutor general of Queen Catherine de Medicis, wife of Henri II. The ex libris in Latin on the title page reveals that the book belonged to another 'procurator generalis" in the Parisian Parliament. Adams, Books published in Europe 1501-1600, L1646.

        Comedia del sacrificio de gli Intronati celebrato ne i giuochi d'un carnovale in Siena.

      Giovanni Padovano, [before 1553]. 8vo. 64 leaves (the last is a blank). With the printer's device on the title - page. Early 20th century calf, small old stamp on leaf H6r, a few light marginal stains, but a very good copy.RARE EDITION OF THIS COLLECTION OF TEXTS produced within the Accademia degli Intronati of Siena: El sacrificio de gli Intronati celebrato nei giuochi del Carnovale in Siena l'anno 1531, followed by the comedy Gl' ingannati ('The Deceived Ones') and the Canzon nella morte d'una civetta. The present edition must have been printed before 1553, the year of Padovano's death.Il Sacrificio is a verse celebration of an academic festivity performed during the Carnival of 1531, in which the academicians reduced to ashes the dearest souvenirs obtained from their ladylove, thus renouncing the services of Venus and instead entirely dedicating themselves to study and philosophy (a list of the participants is given by P. Zimmerman, A Sixteenth Century List of the Intronati, in: "Bullettino senese di storia patria"?, LXXII, 1965, pp. 91 - 95, and G.W. McClure, Parlour Games and the Public Life of Women in Renaissance Italy, Toronto, 2013, pp. 34 - 35).The Canzone nella morte di una civetta, printed at the end, is a parody of a poem written by Pietro Bembo in occasion of the death of his brother and of the whole Petrarchan lyrical production of the first half of the 16th century.However, the main piece of the collection is the play Gl'Ingannati, one of the most widely diffused Italian comedies of the 16th century and the ultimate source of the main plot in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night (cf. J. Schiffer, Twelfth Night: New Critical Essays, London, 2011, pp. 7 - 8, and G. Melchiori, Shakespeare. Genesi e struttura delle opere, Bari, 1994, pp. 365 - 367). At least 22 editions of Gl'Ingannati are recorded for the sixteenth century, the first being printed at Venice in 1537. The present edition was also used by Sanesi for his critical edition "specialmente per le parti spagnuole"? (cf. I. Sanesi, Commedie del Cinquecento, Bari, 1912, I, p. 410, see also V. de Chaska, Early Editions of 'Gl'Ingannati': the Problem of Overlapping Dates, in: "Modern Philology"?, 50/2, 1952, pp. 79 - 87).Gl'Ingannati had its first public performance in the Great Hall of the Council in the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena at the end of the Carnival in 1531. The occasion of the event is outlined in the 'Prologo', it was intended as a remedy for the 'offence' given to ladies of Siena in the Sacrificio degli Intronati a month earlier. Although the play is presented as a collective work of the Intronati, Lodovico Castelvetro and Giovanni Maria Molza (in conjunction with Claudio Tolomei) have been proposed as authors (cf. G. Aquilecchia, Per l'attribuzione della commedia 'Gli ingannati', in: "Giornale storico della letteratura Italiana, 154, 1977, pp. 368 - 379). Furthermore Gl'Ingannati is the first Italian comedy to introduce the female page disguise that would enjoy such success in later European comedy (cf. A. Coller, The Sienese Accademia degli Intronati and its Female Interlocutors, in: "The Italianist"?, 26/2, 2006, pp. 223 - 246)The Accademia degli Intronati, a patrician literary society, was founded in the wake of the Sack of Rome. The model for the society was the lay religious confraternity of the Late Middle Ages: there were elected office bearers, due, rules and regulations, and disciplinary measures. But the Intronati dedicated themselves not to hymn - singing and self - discipline, but to the pursuit of letters, both vernacular and classical, reading, disputations, composition, interpretation and writing. Their mottoes were: Deum colere - Studere - Gaudere - Neminem lædere - Nemini credere - De mundo non curare (L. Petracchi Costantini, L'Accademia degli Intronati di Siena e una sua commedia, Siena, 1928, pp. 7 - 62, and Accademia degli Intronati, Gl'Ingannati, M. Pieri, ed., Corazzano, 2009, passim).Edit 16, CNCE45, Adams, S - 1086.

        El Momo. La moral e muy graciosa historia del Momo; compuesta en Latin por el docto varon Leon Bapista Alberto Florentin. Trasladada en Castellano por Agustín de Almaçan .

      Alcalá de Henares, Joan Mey Flandro, 1553. - Small folio, [14], 71 ff. + one leaf; gothic letter, title printed in red and black within a composite woodcut border of renaissance ornament, printer's woodcut device in the centre, woodcut initials, headpieces, etc; last leaf (blank except for printer's device on recto) in deceptive facsimile; obtrusive wormhole in lower blank margins of three gatherings carefully filled in, one leaf (I1) remargined on three sides with loss of a few letters; some light browning; despite these defects a very sound and large copy with some uncut edges, in recent limp vellum wrappers.First edition in Spanish of Alberti's Momus [or De principe], translated by Augustín de Almaçan and with an introductory 8 pp. Exposición by the Toledo ascetic writer and scholar Alejo Venegas (1495?–1554?).An indispensable source for Alberti's political thought and a 'supremely interesting example of how the comic spirit of the early Renaissance expressed itself in literature' (Martini, below), Alberti's Momus is a political and social satire set in the form of an allegorical/ mythological fable. Its mood is that of a light-hearted humanist jeu d'esprit; its humorous and even farcical manner was intended, as Alberti states in his preface, to make readers laugh while at the same time confronting them with serious political/social issues: in particular, with the question of what makes a good ruler. Macchiavelli apparently derived the title of his Il Principe from Alberti, and Erasmus too seems to have read it. "It could be that Erasmus when he talks of Momus lately hurled to earth by the indignant gods was echoing Alberti: for is there anywhere, in Lucian, or another, such a fate for Momus: But we do not need prodding by Erasmus to see in Momus the most conspicuous instance of the wake of Lucian . Momus was written in the 1440s, twice printed in 1520, had no real breakthrough at either time. Yet it is demonstrably the most sustained, the most inventive offshoot from Lucian before Gulliver's Travels, and it is on a scale which Lucian himself never attempted; while as its subtitle, Momus, seu de Principe, shows, it is also the halfway house between the Monarchy of Dante and that other Prince, of Machiavelli" – J. H. Whitfield, "'Momus' and the nature of humanism", in Classical Influences in European Culture, ed. R. R. Bolgar, CUP 1971.Momus, son of Night in Hesiod's Theogony, is the god of disorder, malevolence, ill-will and sarcasm. The most outspoken of all the gods, he is compelled to learn to hide his character through suffering certain injustices (according to the story told by Alberti in Book I) and, ironically, becomes the spirit of dissimulation, or of 'mummery' in effect. Alberti gives his Momus a subtlety and 'genius in evil-doing' that far exceeds anything in his antique sources – principally Lucian. But where Lucian's satire has a bitter edge, that of Alberti is more genial and more fanciful. The story centers on Jupiter's dealings with Momus, amidst a royal court of other gods and goddesses, each representing some human failing, excess or attribute. Jupiter himself, preoccupied solely with his own amusements, is a weak and vacillating ruler; unable to make firm decisions, he surrounds himself with advisors who are always badly chosen. His rule and its consequences may be referred, in comparison, to the allegory of Male Governo, or Bad Government painted by Ambrogio Lorenzetti in the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena. Book IV of the Momus centres on Alberti's two most vividly drawn and original characters: Charon, representing wisdom and good sense, and Gelastro, a philosopher, as caricature of the absurdity of intellectual pretension.Palau 5193. There was a second edition in 1598. Language: Spanish & Catalan

Though Copernicus had already begun circulating his heliocentric model before Cosmographia was published, Apianus, like most other cosmographers of the era, remained an adherent of Ptolemy, the second century Greco-Egyptian astronomer and polymath.The first edition (1524) was published at Landshut, Germany by a printer and priest named Johann Weissenburger. It would go on to become a bestseller of sorts, with 28 distinct editions appearing in print during the 16th century alone. All but the first edition were printed after the original text had been combed through by the Dutch mathematician Gemma Frisius, who, beginning with the second edition of 1529, slowly supplemented Apianus’ work with his own writingsand illustrations.The success of Cosmographiamay, in part, be attributable to its fantastical passages about strange peoples and foreign places,including a brief section on the newly-discovered continent of America. For the most part however, Cosmographia is a practical book, intended to introduce laymen to concepts in astronomy, geography, geometry, surveying, and navigation. It provides detailed information on the structure of the universe and how one might navigate through it by using various instruments and devices and by taking measured observations of the heavens and the Earth. To accomplish these ends, Cosmographia was lavishly illustrated with maps, charts, and diagrams.In these illustrations we see a Ptolemaic solar system dominated by the Earth and Moon, with the Sun orbiting somewhere between Venus and Mars. We see various phases of a lunar eclipse. The armillary sphere — an ornate, mechanical model of the cosmos — appears several times within the text. In the cordifor

        Le Prince. Traduit d'Italien en Francoys Par Guillaume Cappel.

      Paris, Charles Estienne, 1553. 4to. A very large copy with wide margins. Bound in an excellent 18th century full mottled calf with beautiful richly gilt spine, gilt ornamental borders to boards, and a gilt line to all edges of boards. Alæso internally in near perfect condition. Apart from marginal browning to back endpapers, almost spotless. A magnificent copy, perfectly preserved, with no restorations of any kind. Engraved armorial book plate to inside of front board (Rambuteau). Estienne's printer's device to title-page and woodcut initials in the beginning. (8), 148 pp.. The extremely rare first translation printed in any language, being the first printed French translation, of one of the most important and influential works in the history of mankind, Machiavelli's "The Prince". After the original printing in Italian, the present is arguably the most desirable edition of the seminal masterpiece that is Machiavelli's magnum opus. "The Prince" constitutes the beginning of modern political philosophy and one of the most influential works in the history of modern thought. It founded the science of modern politics on the study of mankind, and even today no political thinker can disregard the importance of this masterpiece of political theory.The translation not only inaugurated the tradition of translating "The Prince" into other languages than Italian, it also exercised the greatest influence upon the entire Machiavellian tradition and constitutes an immeasurable historical source in its own right. Although the work was never reprinted and this extremely scarce edition is the only available version of the text, the effects of it are still clearly visible in our times. It secured the diffusion of the text throughout Europe and it served as the basis for the most important of the later translations, e.g. Jacques Gohory's from 1571, which is considered not much more than a slight reworking of Cappel's translation. As Jean Bingen points to, Cappel's translation also directly influenced (and influences) almost all modern translations of the work. The reason for this continued direct and strong influence is of course not only due to its priority in time over all other translations, it is also due to the fact that Cappel's translation always has been and still is considered the most "Machiavellian" translation of "The Prince" ever made and the one closest to the source - both in time, in style, and in rendering of the content. Cappel was the only of the early translators who was himself a Machiavellian and his respect for and understanding of the text shines from the pages. "Besides being a politically charged text, the "Principe" was also a piece of beautiful and clear Italian prose, and its tightness and brevity constituted a decisive advantage over the "Discorsi". An awareness of the literary qualities of the text is also evident in the preface Guillaume Cappel wrote to his translation (dedicated to Jean Bertrand, Lord Privy Seal), in which he underlines Machiavelli's use of an appropriate style and the good use to which he puts his knowledge of history... These qualities prompted Cappel to undertake his translation...Cappel's enterprise was praised for his literary qualities by the members of the Pléiade who had their own poems inserted at the end of the translation. More recently, his version had been justly praised as "very literal and sinewy". It has also been noted, however, that it was not reprinted, thought Jacques Gohery's version, published 1571, followed it "almost verbatim"." (Petrina, Machiavelli in the British Isles, p. 12). "Guillaume Cappel II, sieur de Preigny (1530-86), was widely known in medicine for his work on nutrition and his editing of texts on how to avoid the plague and on general medical diagnosis. A member of the Catholic League, he was determined not only to bring up his brother's children in the Catholic faith but also to exploit Tilloy to his own profit. However, in 1586 he was killed in an affray with the enemies of the League... Family divisions of the kind that occurred at Le Tilloy were customary during the religious wars, but it is not because of his part in them, nor even because of his Catholic enthusiasm and his medical reputation, that Guillaume Cappel deserves attention. In 1553, at the age of twenty-three, he published a French translation of Machiavelli's "Prince", dedicating it to a powerful patron, the "Garde des sceaux" Jean Bertrand. Appended to the book were poems praising Mchiavelli, and Cappel as his French interpreter, by Marc-Antoine Muret and Rémy Belleau, and other verses about the relative merits of French and Italian princes by Etienne Jodelle. Guillaume Cappel clearly mixed in the foremost literary circles of the time. He claimed to be a student of politics, as well as of medicine and letters, and in his dedication to Bertrand, which he modelled on Machiavelli's own prefatory letter to Lorenzo de' Medici, he expressed an admiration for Machiavelli that knew no bounds. Politics, he remarked, constituted the highest branch of philosophy, itself the queen of the "sciences". Other political writers were sophists producing utopias, but Machiavelli wrote of government as it really was. Cappel went on to argue in his preface that men were more ungrateful towrads their ruler than any animal towrads its master. The exercise of power was shaped by necessity, not by virtuous intentions, and only those who understood this could govern successfully. For his part, the ruler necessarily pursued two aims, to keep his authority intact and to extend his dominions. According to Cappel, Machiavelli had boldly analysed the faults committed by princes in the pst, had shown how problems could be dealt with in the future, and had brilliantly explained the causes of political upheavals.Guillaume Cappel's translation of "The Prince" was the first of three to be published in France before the massacre of St. Bartholomew, when the black legend of Machiavelli became dominant... Guillaume Cappel was not only the first translator of "The Prince" but also the one most in sympathy with Machiavelli himself. He scornfully refuted those who accused his author "de facooner un prince trop rigoreux." A good doctor, said Cappel in his dedication, did not worry whether his patient disliked the remedy he prescribed, but merely whether the cure would work. Cappel refused to take up the rumor whether Machiavelli was an atheist, because, he claimed, there was nothing he had written that could support or deny the charge... Cappel's translation was sharper, and truer to the original than Gaspard d'Auvergne's or Gohory's.... The young Guillaume Cappel was, at this time at least, a true Machiavellian." McMillan Salmo, Renaissance and Revolt, pp. 62-63). The work is of the utmost scarcity, with only few copies known. According to the "Catalogue général" of the Bibliothèque National, at least thirty-five editions of three French translations of "The Prince" appeared between 1553 and 1664. "The doctor Guillaume Cappel is credited with the first French translation of "The Prince" (1553), followed by Gaspard d'Auvergne (1553) and Jacques Gohory (1571)." (Jacob Soll, Publishing The Prince, p.73).(See PMM 63 - first edition)

        Cosmographia Sive Descriptio Universi Orbis

      1553-1584 1553 - A fascinating and scarce early world map bound into original vellum volume with additional plates and diagrams, some with volvelles and dials supplied in facsimile. This interesting woodblock map is on a truncated cordiform (heart-shaped) projection surrounded by a vividly engraved border of windheads, mythical figures and clouds. Amongst these gargoyle images are three cadaverous heads blowing the supposedly plague-carrying southerly winds. The map is said to have been based on one, now lost, by Gemma Frisius and was published in Peter Apian's "Cosmographia .". Three very similar woodblock versions of the map are noted, the first published in 1544, with this being the second, identified by the addition of names for Europe, England and Scotland. It is one of the earliest obtainable maps to show a complete, although very narrowed, outline for the entire New World. South America is clearly recognisable but the northern part is shown as a narrow strip of land extending north-eastwards from Mexico and labelled "Baccalearum"- a reference to the important cod-fishing industry of the north-east coast that drew so many Europeans initially to the continent. A very good example of an early and unusual map.

Una nota sul risguardo libero anteriore ricorda che il libro fu donato in premio ad un certo Louis Maumenet del Collegium Belnense in data 13 agosto 1670 per la munificenza del signor De Cordaillot. Ottima copia.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE di questa raccolta di componimenti neolatini, nella quale il Pigna pubblicò i suoi propri poemi, aggiungendovi una scelta di carmina del Calcagnini e dell'Ariosto. Per quanto riguarda quest'ultimo, «il Pigna nella dedicatoria al principe Alfonso, confessa d'aver avuto i materiali per questa edizione da Virginio Ariosto, il quale lo lasciò libero di scegliere a suo piacimento "il meglio de' versi latini"?.. I componimenti, scelti e pubblicati dal Pigna, sono 53: 9 nel libro primo, e 44 nel libro secondo» (G. Agnelli - G Ravegnani, Annali delle edizioni ariostee, Bologna, 1933, II, p. 139). Tra questi l'epitalamio per le nozze di Lucrezia Borgia e Alfonso I d'Este. «Per i Carmina, i nuclei più saldi sono offerti da un manoscritto in buona parte autografo, oggi nella Comunale di Ferrara, e dall'edizione curata nel 1553 da G.B. Pigna sulla scorta di un originale perduto.. La sezione più vasta e compatta della raccolta risale alla prima fase dell'attività  del poeta, fra i venti e i trent'anni (solo pochi componimenti e quasi sempre brevi, epigrammi o epitaffi, appartengono a un'epoca più tarda) e rispecchia i diversi momenti di un'educazione soprattutto stilistica e tecnica, che pur lascia intravedere già , nella scelta stessa dei modelli e dei temi, il primo orientarsi delle preferenze, del gusto e dell'umanità  dello scrittore» (D.B.I., IV, pp. 176 - 177 a cura di N. Sapegno). Celio Calcagnini, poeta, filosofo e scienziato ferrarese, svolse compiti diplomatici e militari per conto degl'Este, di cui divenne anche storiografo ufficiale. Considerato come uno degli uomini più sapienti del suo tempo, fu celebrato da Ludovico Ariosto e formulò una teoria sul moto della terra vicina a quella copernicana (Opera aliquot, 1544). Conobbe personalmente e fu in contatto epistolare con Erasmo, cui era vicino per posizioni religiose (cfr. Q. Breen, Celio Calcagnini (1479 - 1541), in: "Church History"?, vol. 21, nr. 3, settembre 1952, pp. 225 - 238). «La personalità  letteraria del Calcagnini è tipicamente quella di un intellettuale di stampo umanistico.. Perciò forse l'opera sua più rappresentativa è costituita dai Carmina - che G.B. Pigna volle pubblicare, unitamente alle poesie latine dell'Ariosto, come appendice ai quattor libri delle proprie liriche (Venezia 1553) - ove la curiosità  del letterato, le velleità  satiriche o moraleggianti, le ambizioni didascaliche, la serietà  connessa ad un messaggio ecumenico e la licenza concessa ad una scrittura cortigiana si fondono in una varietà , ancora scarsamente sondata, di metri e di stile, e lasciano scoprire delle precise matrici culturali. Ciò che appare soprattutto notevole in questa esperienza lirica, parallela a quella, in latino e in volgare, dell'Ariosto, è la rimozione di ogni schema petrarchistico e l'accoglienza, invece, di motivi "volgari"? cui aveva fatto ricorso la letteratura di ispirazione riformistica sulla fine del Quattrocento.. Una parte considerevole, forse la più appariscente, dei Carmina è occupata dagli elogi o dalle commemorazioni di amici mediocri (B. Lampridio, C. Rodigino, L.G. Giraldi) o famosi: Ariosto.. e Raffaello, significativamente lodato, più che come artista, come studioso dell'antica topografia romana..(D.B.I., XVI, pp. 496 - 497). Giovanni Battista Pigna, originario di Ferrara, studiò nella sua città  sotto Lilio Gregorio Giraldi, Alessandro Guarino, Francesco Porto e Vincenzo Maggi. A vent'anni divenne insegnante dello Studio di Ferrara e più tardi segretario, cancelliere e storiografo di Alfonso II d'Este. Pubblicò i Romanzi e un'opera intitolata Il duello nel 1554, un trattato sull'onore e le qualità  del gentiluomo, un trattato politico (Il Principe, 1561), una difesa della poetica dell'Ariosto, una storia della casa d'Este (1570) e un commento alla poetica di Orazio (1561).

Geboren, wie er selbst in seinem Drucke \"Psalterium\" (vgl. unten) angibt, zu Usingen in der Wetterau, in welchem Jahre ist nicht bekannt, gilt er wo nicht als ein jüngerer Bruder, so doch als ein naher Verwandter von Melanchthon’s Freund Johann Crato v.

Wenigstens wurde ihm, obgleich noch mehrere nicht namenslose typographische Werkstätten daselbst bestanden, vor allen Anderen der Druck der meisten Melanchthonischen Schriften zugewiesen. Aus seinem äußeren Leben wissen wir, daß er seit 1567 Mitglied des Wittenbergischen Rathscollegiums war, welche Stelle er bis 1576 bekleidete und daß er, weil nach 1577 unter seinem Namen kein Buch mehr erscheint, wol in diesem Jahre gestorben ist. Seine Thätigkeit als Drucker begann mit dem Jahre 1549 und die Zahl der bis zu seinem Tode gelieferten Preßerzeugnisse beläuft sich auf 111, theilweise in wiederholten Auflagen, welche sich sämmtlich durch reine, große und splendide Lettern und ungemein sauberes Papier auszeichnen (aus: Wikisource). --- This is volume III of Martin Luther`s collected works, foreword by Philipp Melanthon, printed by Johann Crato (Hans Krafft), Martin Luther`s own book printer, solidly bound on wooden board, leather spine with gilded title and ornaments, slight leather tear along the spine, nevertheless solid, excellent paper quality, almost no foxing, clearly printed, ancient water marks running throughout the pages (bottom edge), not affecting the text, several initials, altogether satisfying condition for this genuinely rare item. --- Le tome III des oeuvres complètes de Martin Luther avec introduction de Philipp Melanthon, reliure demi cuir, avec pièce de titre, dorures, 5 nerfs, endommagée sur le plat de devant, néanmoins l`ouvrage reste solide, excellente qualité de papier et d`impression, initiales, pratiquement aucunes rousseurs, anciennes mouillures en bas des pages n`affectant pas le texte, dans l`ensemble solide et en état tout à fait satisfaisant. --- 22 x 30 Cm. 2,8 Kg.

Auf Karton montiert, die Zeichnung mit der Darstellung des Johannes hat am linken Rand eine kleine Fehlstelle sowie eine rote Farbspur. Vorzeichnungen für Kupferstiche von Hieronymus Wierix (1553 ?-1619). Maerten de Vos schuf zahlreiche kleinformatige Zeichnungen dieser Art, die außer von verschiedenen Künstlern der Kupferstecherfamilien Wierix und Sadeler auch von A. Collaert (um 1560-1618) und Ph. Galle (1537-1612) gestochen wurden. Zwei vergleichbare Zeichnungen „Christus im Garten von Gethsemane" sowie „Die Gefangennahme Christi" (beide 5,9:4,6 cm) befinden sich in den graphischen Sammlungen des Rijksmuseum Amsterdam und des Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge/Mass.

Maerten de Vos war wahrscheinlich der Schüler von Frans Floris (1519/20-1570). 1552 unternahm er eine Reise nach Italien, vielleicht in Begleitung von Pieter Bruegel d. Ä. (1525/30-1569) und besuchte Rom, Florenz und Venedig. Es ist umstritten, ob er im Atelier Tintorettos ( gearbeitet hat. 1556 ist er in Antwerpen wieder nachweisbar,1558 wird er als Meister in die St. Lukas-Gilde aufgenommen. Nach dem Tode von Floris 1570 wird er der beherrschende Künstler der Stadt mit einer großen Werkstatt. Durch die Rekatholisierung von 1585 an erhielt er zahlreiche Aufträge für Altarwerke. Parallel dazu war er vor allem als Zeichner für den Kupferstich tätig.

        Petri Bellonii Cenomani De aquatilibus, libri duo cum [epsilon, iota] conibus ad viuam ipsorum effigiem, quoad eius fieri potuit, expressis …

      Paris: Apud Caroloum Stephanum, 1553. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+. Oblong 8vo (95 x 157mm). [32], 448pp. Illustrated with 188 woodcuts figures, hand-colored, depicting species of fish, marine life, crustaceans and shells. Later mottled calf, marbled endpapers; (light browning, some margins trimmed close). First Edition. A French translation appeared two years later and the volume was reprinted in Frankfurt and Zurich. Pierre Belon, physician, polymath, traveler, artist and naturalist, obtained his medical degree at the University of Paris under the patronage of King Francis I. He was from the Le Mans region of France, and this copy has an early French inscription on the front endpaper ?"Sarthe/ Le Mans/ Pierre Belon a né au Le Mans en 15..?", possibly linking this book to a collection in Sarthe, near the author?'s home region. Another early French inscription on the rear endpapers, gives the ex-libris and name ?"C. Dupres,?" and writes Paris. After his formal education, Pierre Belon apprenticed himself to a botanist and wandered from France to Palestine, drawing careful sketches of all the living things he encountered. To his friend Ronsard this journey had all the importance of a general exploration of the globe, and he celebrated it appropriately in verse, glorifying Belon as if he had been one of the greatest of navigators in history. The accounts of his observations during this great tour were published in 1553 in the remarkable book known as ?"The Singularities.?" That same year the appearance of Belon?'s work ?'De Aquatilibus,?' on fish, mollusks and aquatic mammals, constituted the greatest single advance in the scientific study and classification of fish since Aristotle. While rectifying and enlarging what Aristotle had said, the Mansian naturalist gave a positive basis to ichthyology by descriptions and figures of a considerable number of species. In the ?'De Aquatilibus?' are described a hundred and ten fishes, of which twenty-two are cartilaginous, seventeen fresh- water, and the rest sea fishes. The feature that especially prepared new bases for the science of fishes was his observations on the thoracic and abdominal splanchnology of those animals. The ?'De Aquatilibus?' was a standard ichthyology text well into the 17th century. The figures representing the fish species are easily recognizable despite the simplicity of the style of the wood-engravings. Unlike most scientists, Belon was assassinated at the age of 47 while walking through the Bois de Boulogne, probably because he was a favorite of Kings Henry II and Charles IX of France. Belon is remembered as a great savant of the 16th century who greatly contributed to the dawning Renaissance in France. He is one of the initiators of modern natural history, especially within ichthyology.

        NOVUM TESTAMENTUM. Interprete Sebastiano Castalione (NEW TESTAMENT).

      Basel, Ioannes Oporinus, 1553.  NEW TESTAMENT 1553, Latin text by Sebastien Chatillon. Second edition of Castalione translation, 8vo, approximately 170 x 95 mm, 6¾ x 3¾ inches, 501 pages with side notes, ruled throughout in reddish brown, title lined in yellow on title page, decorated initials to each book with same early pale yellow hand colouring, some capital letters lined in yellow throughout, bound in full antique calf, rebacked to style with gilt motif and title between raised bands, covers panelled in blind with gilt ornament at corners and in centre, all edges gilt, original red ruled endpapers. Corners worn with slight loss of leather to tips, lower cover worn with some loss of surface and loss of leather on fore-edge, small scrape to upper cover also, inner paper hinges repaired expertly, small armorial bookplate on first pastedown, closed tear to 2 margins, 1 just affecting text, neatly repaired, all still legible, tip missing from 2 corners, a few marginal notes and a few underlinings, both in very pale ink, contents otherwise clean, binding tight and firm. A very good copy of a Latin New Testament. The translator Sebastien Chatillon (1515-1563) was a French Protestant theologian and humanist. He was an associate of Calvin and an important figure in the early years of the Reformation. Through the influence of Calvin he was appointed rector of a school in Geneva, from which he was expelled on theological grounds in 1544. He subsequently became a professor of Greek in Basel and there published his famous Latin version of the Bible (1551). Calvin had refused permission for this in Geneva when he realised that Chatillon\'s translation threatened his authority on a number of points of theological interpretation. A separate edition of Chatillon\'s New Testament was issued also in 1551. A striking characteristic of Chatillon\'s Latin version is his use of classical substitutes for recognised ecclesiastical terms such as fanum for templum, respublica for ecclesia, collegium for synagoga. Chatillon also made a French version of the Bible from the Hebrew and Greek published in 1555 also in Basel. See Darlow and Moule, Volume II, part 1, No., 3720 and Volume II, part 2, No., 6131.

A striking characteristic of Chatillon's Latin version is his use of classical substitutes for recognised ecclesiastical terms such as fanum for templum, respublica for ecclesia, collegium for synagoga. Chatillon also made a French version of the Bible from the Hebrew and Greek published in 1555 also in Basel. See Darlow and Moule, Volume II, part 1, No., 3720 and Volume II, part 2, No., 6131.
