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, dimensioni 255x160 mm, foro di bruciatura al centro che comporta piccola perdita di parte incisa anticamente resaturato, per il resto in buono stato di conservazione. Rarissima.

TORQUEMADA, Antonio de
Al fin: en la villa de Mondoñedo, en la casa de Agustín Paz, xxv dias del mes de otubre, 1553. 8º (15,3 x 10,2 cm.) 8 h. inc. port. a dos tintas, rojo y negro, enmarcada por cuatro tacos xilográficos, 236 h. fol., al vuelto de la última el colofón. Impresión en caracteres góticos. Encuadernación del siglo XIX en pergamino a la romana. Primera edición, muy rara. Dentro de un marco pastoril que se adelanta a la novela del mismo género, el autor pone al descubierto los desmanes de sus contemporáneos respecto al abuso del juego; la mala práctica de médicos y boticarios; los desatinos en el comer, el beber y el vestir. Dedica un precioso coloquio a las excelencias de la vida pastoril, y ofrece finalmente un singular relato de pastores pionero en nuestras letras, con el objeto de alertar contra los peligros del amor. Todo ello lo sirve con un cruce exquisito de la sátira y del género del diálogo. Resulta curioso comprobar que muchos de los dislates allí denunciados en el siglo XVI persisten en nuestros días. Refuerzo en margen inferior del colofón, sin afectar texto. Palau, 334905: “Rara edición”; Salvá, 1452: “Los ejemplares son muy raros.” [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Marca tipografica aldina al titolo. Carattere corsivo. Sul contropiatto anteriore ex-libris Galletti-Landau (37152-37153) e nota manoscritta "Aldini N. 9 A=6". Ottimo esemplare, solo a tratti lievemente fiorito. RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE dell'egloga Tirsi scritta da Baldassarre Castiglione in collaborazione con il cugino Cesare Gonzaga. L'egloga, in ottave, fu rappresentata per la prima volta alla corte di Urbino per il carnevale del 1506 e lo stesso Castiglione vi prese parte, recitando nel ruolo del pastore Jola. Benché la moresca e le meraviglie metamorfiche e coreutiche del Tirsi siano proprie dell'azione scenica, la ricchissima tessitura di citazioni (da Teocrito a Virgilio, dai bucolici latini minori a Dante, da Petrarca a Boccaccio, da Poliziano a Sannazzaro) e la struttura prevalentemente monologica ne fanno un testo fondamentalmente per sola lettura, in cui l'allusività a situazioni e personaggi della ambiente di corte sanciscono una sorta di rito autocelebrativo e autoreferenziale (cfr. C. Vela, Il Tirsi di Baldesar Castiglione e Cesare Gonzaga, in: "La poesia pastorale nel Rinascimento", a cura di S. Carrai, Padova, 1998, pp. 245-292). Il volume, edito per le cure Anton Giacomo Corso, contiene anche le Rime di quest'ultimo.

Paris, Carolum Stephanum, 1553. Oblong 8vo (11.1 x 17.0 cm). [xxxii (index)], 448 pp., with 187 woodcut illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum; ink title in an old hand, written on the spine. First edition of a very rare book by the French naturalist and explorer Pierre Belon (1517-1564). "...there are three great authors who truly founded modern ichthyology. It is remarkable that their books appeared at almost the same time: Belon in 1553, Rondelet in 1554 and 1555, and Salviani from 1554 to 1558. All three, contrary to the compilers who mainly quoted the old Roman authors, personally saw and examined the fishes they spoke of and saw to it that they were drawn with some exactitude...In his De Aquatilibus, Belon provided drawings of 110 species of fishes, including 22 cartilaginous species and 17 freshwater species; and he discussed some 20 other species for which he gives no drawings. Nearly all the marine fishes are Mediterranean, but there are also some species from the Paris fish market." [Cuvier (Pietsch), p. 42]. The woodcuts show fishes as well as a turtle, hippo, crocodiles, whales and dolphins, and the famous sea monk. Bookplate mounted on front pastedown; tiny stamp of former owner 'Library of Robert(? ) Rofen' in the lower margin of the front free endpaper recto. Old owner's signature, dated 1555, on the title page. Title page repaired at edges. This is an exceptionally wide-margined copy, which is rarely seen. A very occasional scattered spot, but in all a very clean and nice copy. Dean III, p. 216; Nissen Schöne Fischbücher, 13; Nissen ZBI, 302; Pietsch Cuvier … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ovidio Publio Nasone - Dolce Ludovico
appresso Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, in Venetia. In-4° antico (225x150mm), pp. (16), 309, (11) di indice, legatura settecentesca in piena pergamena rigida con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso ed unghie. Tagli marmorizzati. Frontespizio xilografico. Testatine ed iniziali istoriate in xilografia e 94 vignette xilografiche a un terzo di pagine, alcune delle quali di soggetto biblico in quanto eseguite per una Bibbia mai pubblicata dal Giolito (le xilografie sono state attribuite da taluni all’architetto Giovanni Antonio Rusconi). In fine, una carta con grande stemma giolitino e registro. Frontespizio rifoderato. Lievemente rifilato. Buon esemplare. Seconda edizione, contemporanea alla prima, di questa traduzione o libero adattamento del Dolce delle Metamorfosi ovidiane, la migliore, prima di quella dell'Anguillara, tra quante ne furono fatte in volgare nel Rinascimento. La disinvoltura con cui il Dolce affrontava i problemi della traduzione era aggravata dal fatto che tutte le sue fatiche letterarie erano scandite dai frenetici tempi del mercato librario e spesso insidiate dalla concorrenza. Nel 1539 il D. pubblicò il Primo libro delle Trasformazioni, parafrasi in versi sciolti delle Metamorfosi di Ovidio, come saggio della versione complessiva che andava approntando: l'opera venne completata solo nel 1553, in ottave, con un tetrastico finale in cui il D. si dichiarava pronto a correggere la traduzione e doveva essere tanto poco sicuro di sé da pregare il Varchi di emendare. Intervenne invece il Ruscelli con il terzo dei suoi Discorsi, in cui, oltre a sottolineare i numeros … [Click Below for Full Description]

Petrarca, Francesco [i.e., Petrarch]; Giovanni Andrea Gesualdo, commentator.
per Domenico Giglio, 1553. Illustrated collection of Petrarch's Sonetti et canzoni and I Trionfi, here with a biography of the author and the extensive commentary of humanist Giovanni Andrea Gesualdo. The Renaissance page management by which a short section of text may be printed as near-surrounded by a sea of commentary is on full show here, with text and commentary presented in different sizes of italic type with plenty of historiated woodcut initials in varying sizes throughout. This edition is one of two printed in 1553, the text's first year of publication, the other having come from G. Giolito also of Venice. Fowler notes that this edition does not incorporate Gesualdo's dedication, the index to the commentary, or the giunta, but it does contain a letter to Bernardo Priuli from Giglio; in our copy I Trionfi has been bound before the rest of the text, contrary to the directions of the register. The work begins with a Grecian-style woodcut title-page featuring medallion portraits of Petrarch and Laura originally used in the Nicolini-Daniello edition of 1549; the cut is repeated to create a sectional title-page for I Trionfi. Also present are the => six detailed, half-page woodcut illustrations of I Trionfi and Giglio's printer's device at the colophon. Provenance: With a partially removed armorial bookplate of the Bibliotheque de Rosny (the library of => Duchess Marie-Caroline de Bourbon-Sicile -- King Henry the Fifth's mother) on front pastedown and two bookseller descriptions of the item in hand on binder's blanks; most recently in the library of American colle … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il contient des références aux grands personnages de l'Eglise et de la littérature, avec notamment d'intéressantes mentions sur la découverte de l'Amérique. "Contains on p.182 reference to new island of the Atlantic and on p. 196 an account of the discovery of America by Columbus" (Sabin). Francesc Tarafa fut l'un des principaux humanistes catalans de la Renaissance et cet ouvrage constitue notamment la première histoire d'Espagne écrite par un historien catalan. Portrait de l'auteur gravé sur bois en médaillon sur la page de titre, avec au verso les armoiries du roi d'Espagne également gravées sur bois.

Bali efendi (d. 961 H. - 1553 AD)
1553. Arabic manuscript, commentary on Fusus al Hikam of Ibn Arabi. approx. 500 p. out-ruled in silver, with illuminated heading on the first page. fine Naskh script by Muhammad Zihni in the late H. 10th or the beginning of the 11th C.Contemporary Full leather Ottoman style binding with flap. Shaykh Bali Efendi from Sofia (d. 1553) was born in Strumica in Macedonia and according to Evliya Chelebi (Book III) belonged to a Yörük tribe, and to the family of the Prophet. At list one of two claims is highly dubious. After finishing his studies he entered the service of Qasim Efendi, shaykh of 'Ali Pasha convent in Istanbul. Induced by his murshid and a dream in which Ibn 'Arabi himself asked Bali to compose a commentary on Fusus al-Hikam, Bali Efendi wrote his most important work: Sharh al-Fusus. After spending a time as shaykh of Zeyrek dervish convent in Istanbul, he moved to Sofia where he died. He played an important role in spreading Halwatism in the Balkans.

Segue altra dedicatoria allo scultore Gasparo Romanelli. Una fedele ristampa di questo commento venne pubblicata nel 1566 dal Rampazetto. Venne poi stampata in Vicenza, eredi Perin nel 1597. Il Burchiello (1404 - 1449), barbiere e flobotomo, ebbe una vita stentata, segnata da miserie e malattie ma anche da vizio, malattie venerre ecc. Le poesie non sono soltanto oggetto di curiosita' erudita per chi ama le facezie ma presentano un interesse piu' vasto, sia come documento di un gusto non spentosi con l'eta' dell'autore sia per quel che e' in esse di veramente poetico.

"Prima edizione con il commento del Doni". Cfr.

British Library, p. 223 - Manca all'Adams che cita un'ediz. del 1597. "Le poesie di Domenico di Giovanni, detto il Burchiello (1404-1440) non sono soltanto un oggetto di curiosità erudita o una piacevole lettura per chi ama le facezie, ma presentano un interesse più vasto sia come documento di un gusto non spentosi con l'età dell'autore, sia per quel che è in esse di veramente poetico. Una vena di autentica poesia era infatti in quel barbiere fiorentino, che conobbe malanni, vizi e miserie, e la cui bottega fu un circolo di letterati, semi-letterati e capiscarichi e una fucina di critiche mordaci e di beffe". Così Diz. Opere Bompiani, VI, 262. Qualche lieve alone ma certamente un buon esemplare.

With the present work, Stracca provided the first systematic exposition of commercial law, in particular maritime law, which he was the first to view as distinct from civil law. He was furthermore the first to consider these aspects of the law from a practical point of view, thereby breaking with the late Medieval scholastic law-tradition. Maritime law, often referred to as admiralty law, was developed in Venice in the middle of the 13th century, prompted by the extensive Mediterranean sea trade in which the republic engaged.

This edition contains some added material not previously present, including most prominently Solomon ibn Gabirol's famed philosophical poem "Keter Malkhut" (Royal Crown), which over the years has come to be read as part of the Yom Kippur service in some Jewish traditions.

Faythfully translated out of the Greke. and perused by commaundement of the kynges maiestie and his honourable coundell, and by them auctorised. With the Notes and expositions of the darke places therein. Mathewe. xiii. f. The pearle, whiche Christe commaunded to be bought, Is here to be founde, not elles to be sought." R. Jugge: London, 1553. Rare small octavo printing (Herberts #105). One of the few surviving copies of the last printing of the Protestant New Testament under King Edward VI; suppressed and destroyed during the reign of Queen Mary I. This edition was unknown to Francis Fry, thus does not appear in his Bibliographical Description. For a descriptive and critical article on this copy, see the Athenaeum, June 1886. After the ascension of Queen Mary, no further edition of the scriptures in English would be printed in England until 1561. An unusually fine copy of an all but unknown edition. The General Title and a single text leaf (xxV) are in facsimile. Curiously, Signature 9 is taken from the 1536 Tyndale New Testament (D.M. 22; Bible House Copy). "We personally checked that the Bible House Copy is missing this signature." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
