Nach dem Zerwürfnis mit Calvin ließ er sich 1545 in Basel nieder, wo er um 1553 zum Professor für Griechisch an die Universität berufen wurde.

The editions of Junta, which are corrected by Castilio [...] formed the basis of it. It is emphatically called the Basil edition, and was the first revision of Xenophon's text published in Germany.

Ein Brief und eine Abhandlung über Metrik von Erasmus von Rotterdam ergänzen die Ausgabe. - Die vorliegende Ausgabe ist bibliographisch für uns nicht nachweisbar.

Petrarca, Franciscus [Petrarch, Francesco] / Gesualdo, Andrea / Morton, Albertus / Wotton, Henry / Fratelli Nicolini da Sabio.

Hardcover / Modern full Morocco. The poetry of Petrarch for his beloved Laura, accompanied by the commentary of Gesualdo in an edition of 1553 which was presented as an early seventeenth century diplomatic gift by the assistant to the British Ambassador in Venice Sir Henry Wotton, Sir Albertus Morton. The book has recently been recased in blind crushed crimson morocco with new endpapers. There is some staining to the last few leaves and some staining to the last few gatherings of the volume. The evidence of the diplomatic gift is found in the 17 line formal Italian gift inscription opposite the engraved title page, written and signed by Sir Albertus Morton, Secretary (and nephew) to Sir Henry Wotton. The signed inscription dedicates the book to an apparently unnamed dedicatee in laudatory and conventional terms: 'Eccellentissimo Signore mio, Padrone Collendissimo Vivendo in me sempre il medesimo ardore di farmi conoscere per servitore dell'Eccellenza vostra, non perciò ho avuto animo in questo concorso di doni che le vengon fatti, di presentarmile inanzi. Ma hora non posso più ritenere tal mio disiderio che non le metta in cospetto questi due forestieri, sapendo quanto l'Eccellenza vostra sia fautrice di vertuosi et di pellegrini, et maggiormente sarà di questi, per venir essi banditi dalla patria loro.

MESUE (J.).
S.l. (Paris), 1553. - Petit in-8. 248 feuillets chiffrés. 4ff. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs, encadrement à froid sur les plats avec fleurons dorés dans les angles (reliure moderne dans le style de l'époque). Ouvrage classique de pharmacie publié sous le nom du grand médecin arabe Yahya ibn Masawaih (775-857), qui fut directeur de l'hôpital de Bagdad et qui joua un rôle considérable dans l'avancement des sciences en Perse. Ce volume réunit sous un même titre trois ouvrages de pharmacie, dont l'un d'eux est aujourd'hui considéré comme apocryphe. "The 'Grabardin', or apothecary's manual (Antidotarium), of the eponymous or pseudonymous Mesue junior, now called 'pseudo-Mesue', a mysterious Latin compilation of the 10th or 11th century, of which the Arabic originals have never been found, was the most popular compendium of drugs in medieval Europe, and was used everywhere in their preparation. The Mesue treatise on purgatives divides the latter into laxative (tamarinds, figs, prunes, cassia), mild (wormwood, senna, aloes, rhubarb) and drastic (jalap, scammony, colocynth). The esteem in which these works were held is shown by the fact that a Latin translation of both was one of the first medical books to be printed (Venice, 1471). It passed through more than 30 editions up to 1581, and has influenced all later pharmacopeias" (Garrison). La traduction latine est due au médecin français Jacques Dubois (1478-1555).

A short tear in top margin of leaf 104, and in outer margin of leaf 128. A stain in lower margin of leaf 138. A few small specks and fingerprints scattered through the text, but contents are remarkably clean. In lower margin of leaf 13 (verso) and 58 (recto) a reasonably early owner has written a few short verses in latin, for instance: "Post coenam stabis, vel passus mille meabis" [After the meal, you should rise and walk at least one thousand steps], and "Caseus, anguilla nimis obsunt si comedantur" [Cheese and Eel becomes too heavy if they are eaten together]. This work on maintaining good health is traditionally attributed to the Catalan alchemist, astrologer and physician Arnald of Villanova (1235-1311), here edited by Jacob Crell and Joannes Curio. The first edition thus was published in 1545. "Of the knowledge emanating from [the Medical School at] Salerno, however, the work most influental on health practices of Europeans was of quite different character. A health manual, the so-called Regimen sanitatis, consisted of dietetic and pharmaceutica … [Click Below for Full Description]

Five or six missing leaves had similar drawings, to judge from copied captions in the Escorial copy of the text.

Born Paolo Lorenzo Castellino, Davidico was expelled from the Barnabites of Milan in 1547 for arrogant conduct as well as apparently for stealing, before making his way up in anti-heretical circles. He ingratiated himself with Ignatius of Loyola by denouncing a popular preacher accused of heresy, Giuliano da Colle (who died in prison), and eventually landed the office of Apostolic Preacher under Pope Julius III. & & Davidico wrote several devotional and polemical works which he dedicated to influential prelates and personages close to the Papacy.

La sua arte è stata influenzata dal viaggio in Italia, dove resterà per 4 anni a Roma, dedicandosi soprattutto allo studio dell'antico, mediante l'esercizio del disegno. Ritornato in patria, continuerà a rappresentare nei suoi quadri le antiche rovine di Roma usate per ambientare soggetti anche eterogenei. Si dedica anche alla grafica, caratterizzata da un particolare manierismo appreso in Italia, che ricorda il Parmigianino ed il Pontormo. Intuendo la grande potenzialità dell?incisione per la traduzione dei suoi disegni, l?artista inizia la collaborazione con alcuni editori ed incisori quali Hieroniums Cock.
