All woodcut illustrations and ornaments hand-colored. Later vellum over boards (lacking fore-edge ties).***& & FIRST EDITION of an illustrated anti-Lutheran polemic by a former Barnabite and inquisitor. 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. Following publication of this book, its dedicatee Cardinal Giovanni Morone offered Davidico a position as Vicar in his diocese; within months the latter was caught selling absolution. Morone dismissed him from his charge, forced him to return the money and kicked him out of the diocese. A few years later, when Morone was incarcerated at the Castello San Angelo in Rome und … [Click Below for Full Description]

Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, irregolarmente rifilata al rame, leggere abrasioni perfettamente restaurate al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione.Maarten van Heemskerck (1498 - 1574) è stato un pittore olandese del periodo detto rinascimento transalpino. 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. Sono note circa 600 incisioni derivanti dai suoi disegni. Dirck Volkertszoon Coornhert nacque ad Amsterdam, dopo aver viaggiato in Spagna e in Italia, si stabilì ad Haarlem. Rara incisione.

A very good copy. The translator Sebastien Chateillon (1515-1563) 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 Chateillon's translation threatened his authority on a number of points of theological interpretation. A separate edition of Chateillon's New Testament was issued also in 1551. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hieronymus:
Basileae / Basel Froben, 1553.. Sondereinband. Stark "zensiertes" Exemplar mit teils entfernten Seiten, teils nur überklebten Seiten, wenn der Zensor wohl die Rückseite für "unbedenklich" hielt. Diese "Überklebungen" wurden aber wohl auch wieder teils von wissbegierigen Lesern entfernt. Einband: Pergament der Zeit, Buchblock vom Einband fast kpl. gelöst Pergament von innen recht geschickt unterlegt, Vorsätze müssten erzgänzt werden. Die Heftung des Buchs perfekt. Handschriftlich Titel auf Vorderdeckel und Rücken, mit stärkeren Gebrauchsspuren, aber alles in Originalzustand! Index ca 200 S. Erste Seiten mit Mäusefraß am Rand ohne Textverlust. Druckermarke am Schluss (ohne Jahreszahl). Prachtvoller Druck auf sehr gutem Papier, nur einige Lagen stärker gebräunt, letzte Lagen mit deutlicheren Gebrauchsspuren, 1 Blatt mit Namenseintrag "del Luogo de Soncino de fratr. Cappucini." Nach Angaben der Vorbestitzer stammt das Werk aus einen aufgelösten Kloster in Latium in Cellino dem "Convento S. Giovanni Battista" das 1980 in ein Hotelzentrum umgewandelt wurde . Es scheint, als ob insbesondere die Briefe an Frauen des Hieronymus keine Gnade vor dem Zensor gefunden haben, aber auch das Kapitel "De virginitate seruanda" ,"de monogamia" und selbst das "de vita clericorum", meinte er "verbessern" zu müssen. In einer Randnotiz gibt er sich als Frater Andreas zu erkennen, erwähnt den Index libr. prohibit. aber wirklich nachvollziehbar wird sein Tun dadurch auch nicht. Interessantes Dokument trotz der sicherlich zu 10 % entfernten Seiten! LA214.6

ALBERTI, Leon Battista.
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.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

AUGUSTUS, Elector of Saxony, 1526-1586.
Dresden, 22 March, (15)70, 1553. Dresden,, 22 March, (15)70. 1 leaf (text 1/2 p.). With address on verso. Folio. Dresden, 22 March, (15)70. Augustus announces that his council will arrive at the abbey of St. George near Naumburg (Saale) on the second Sunday after Easter ("Misericordias domini") and that they will stay for a while. There is a shortage of veal, fowls, eggs, fish and other cooked foods (Kuchenspeise), as our "Schosser" at the abbey had informed him. He wishes Kronberger to help the latter to provide all this. The address reads: "Unserm Schosser zu Freiburgh unnd liben getreuen Andres Kronbergern"; endorsement: "Bestellung der kuchen speiss Ins Closter S Gorgen", with autograph signature "Augustus". The letter is written from Dresden, Freiberg is not far west of Dresden, but some way from Naumburg. There is a smaller place, Freyburg, near Naumburg. The abbey of Naumburg was suppressed and taken over by Johann Friedrich of Saxony earlier in the 16th century. Augustus the Pious, elector from 1553-86, was one of the best domestic rulers the country ever had; he devoted his long reign to the development of its resources. The signature on this letter is autograph (cf. examples in British Library Dept. of MSS., Cotton MS Galba B. XI, f. 376b and Add. MS. 21522, f. 92). - Remains of seal and ties, browned, a few stains, small pieces of margins missing. AUTOGRAPHS ; HISTORY (KULTURGESCHICHTE) ;

Geneva: Jean Crespin, 1553. 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" in 8s. . [1-2] 3-796 pp. [2] blank & errata. The first Greek testament issued by Jean Crispin (or Crespin) from the third edition of R. Stephanus's 1550 edition, title with verso blank, preface by Joannes Crispinus Pietatis Studiosis. Printer's device present but publisher's information has been rubbed out. Crespin left his position as Advocate for the Parliament of Paris branded as a heretic and joined his friend Jean Calvin in Geneva. For a fuller biography of him, read Jeannine E. Olson's, "Jean Crespin, Humanist Printer Among the Reformation Martyrologist" in Manfred P. Fleischer (ed) The Harvest of Humanism in Central Europe; Essays in Honor of Lewis W. Spitz, p. 317-340. Darlow and Moule, (4626) 590-591 note: "The first Greek Testament issued by Jean Crispin (or Crespin) the French printer of Geneva, who went on to publish many editions of the Scriptures in various languages including the second quarto English Geneva Bible of 1570." The British and Foreign Bible Society copy wants all matter after p. 474 (end of Acts). A copy in the Austrian National Library. This copy precedes the work of Theodore Beza in 1565 by a dozen years and it would appear to be the Greek text Calvin would have used in the last decade of his life and studies. Bound in full contemporary mottled calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label gilt, other compartments fully gilt decorated, marbled endpapers, some chipping to spine ends, small piece of lower margin to page 175 torn away without loss of text.

The most complete collection of early texts on balneology with descriptions of over 200 spas; illustrated with woodcuts of a natural bath at Pozzuoli, a water-wheel driven pump at Fideris in the Praetigau in eastern Switzerland, and a view of Plombieres-les-Bains in the Vosges showing visitors bathing and taking the waters
Venice, heirs of Lucantonio Giunta 1553 - Folio. 14 + 497 ff. Roman & italic letter with some Greek. Printer's woodcut device on title and on recto of leaf 488. With 5 full-page woodcut illustrations in the text and numerous woodcut initials. Contemporary limp vellum with stubs of ties preserved. The most complete collection of early texts on balneology charting the history of the subject and containing precise descriptions of over 200 spas. The individual contributions, of which some had never been published before and many appear not to have been reprinted, are presented in full or in extract as appropriate. Some 70 authors are cited ranging from classical antiquity (Aristotle, Avicenna, Hippocrates, Galen) to the Renaissance (Giralomo Cardano, Michael Savonarola, Conrad Gesner, Leonhardt Fuchs, Joachim Camerarius). Gesner's work on German and Swiss thermal springs is here first published. We are thus offered a unique picture of 16th century knowledge of what was then a very popular pastime. Balneo-therapy was a fashionable means of treating medical conditions, and there existed in Germany alone some 70 health spas. The striking full-page woodcuts include a plan of a natural bath at Pozzuoli, a representation of a waterwheel-driven pump used to raise water at the baths of Fideris in the Prätigau Valley of eastern Switzerland, and a fine view of the spa of Plombières-les-Bains in the Vosges, complete with tiny figures, some on crutches, bathing and taking the waters.

Later vellum, manuscript title on spine; minor paper repairs throughout, one leaf restored. Contemporary annotations. An extremely rare edition (only five copies located) of what was the first agronomic treatise of the middle ages, the original printing of which appeared in Augsburg in 1471. Crescentio was "seventy years of age when he undertook to write, in Latin, a sort of Gentleman's Recreation or Maison Rustique, in twelve books, crammed with information of all kinds likely to be of use to the gentleman farmer." His compendium of agriculture and husbandry provide the botanical background needed for raising crops, and includes topics ranging from water supply, apiculture, the building of granaries and the cultivation of grains. In addition, he discusses arboriculture and horticulture, the hunting and trapping wild animals, the medicinal uses of plants, as well as the diseases of animals, and domestic hygiene. Chapter IV, is devoted to viticulture, wine and the preservation of grapes and raisins. Chapter VIII, which covers gardens, served as a model for many sixteenth and seventeenth century gardening books. The final chapter is a well organized manual of procedure, detailing everything that needs to be done monthly in the orchard, farm and field. The immense value of this work was recognized immediately; Charles V, King of France, first ordered this book to be translated into French in 1373. Since then, it has gone through numerous editions and tran … [Click Below for Full Description]
