Handschrift in Latein - Anonym
Fol. 167, 21 nn. Bll.. Kl.4. Einband d. Z. aus Pergamenthandschrift. Berieben, fleckig und gebräunt einige wenige Wurmlöcher teils etwas braun- und wasserfleckig Widmung (meist unleserlich) auf Titelei möglicherweise fehlt am Schluß eine Lage. Sehr saubere Handschrift in brauner Tinte auf Papier Überschriften in römischer Kapitalis. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um die Reinfassung einer Mitschrift oder das Skript einer Vorlesung über die Logik des Aristoteles, worauf der didaktische Aufbau (Frage-Antwort) hindeutet. Ohne eingehende Vergleichung von Text und/oder Handschrift war es mir nicht möglich, den Verfasser zu eruieren: In Frage kommen könnte z. B. der schottische Philosoph Robert Balfour (1553-1621, u. a. in Paris und Bordeaux), der 1616 einen "Commentarius in organum logicum Aristotelis" verfasste oder Philipp Zinner, von dem in der Franziskanerbibliothek Schwaz eine Handschrift von 1627 (Kopist: Johann Georg Erdinger) vorhanden ist ("Quaestiones logicae in organum Aristotelis") oder Anselmus Schlager (Andechs) oder Sebastian Rhöer OSB (Ottobeuren) (Kopist der beiden: Paul Ramblmayr von Taufers Exemplare in der Schwazer Bibliothek) oder auch Uldarich Freyberger (dictatus)/Bonifacius Schmidt (excerptus) aus Salzburg (Exemplar in der Grazer Universitätsbibliothek).

Original hunting print, number 60, titled: 'Vipera in Italiae gaudet latitare palude'. It shows: hunting snakes/vipers: hunters with dogs, wooden tongs and two-pronged sticks are catching snakes that devour frogs. Original etching/engraving on a verge type handlaid paper. Description: This print originates from the 104-print series titled "Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium" designed by Joannes Stradanus. These prints were very popular in their time, and reprinted often. Originally Philips Galle engraved 43 unnumbered plates with a dedication page to Cosimo de Medici. De Medici, who employed Stradanus between 1553-1571, commissioned him to make a series of lavish representations of hunting, fowling and fishing for the adornment of twenty rooms in the Palace of Peggio-a-Cajano. These are the designs so magnificently commemorated in the Venationes, blending well-tried renaissance hunting methods with fabulous subject matter drawn from Persia, India and the East. This series was enlarged and further plates by A. Collaert, J. Collaert, C. Galle I and C. de Mallery were added. Several sheets in this ed. have a cross of lorraine watermark with a star countermark, which points to 1590-1630. As this sheet was bound with a dated print dated 1615, we find a dating of 1615 plausible.Artists and Engravers: This print engraved by Cornelis Galle after the design of Joannes Stradanus. Joannes Stradanus (Brugge, 1523 - Florence, 1605) or Jan van der Straet, Giovanni della Strada, Giovanni Stradano, Giovanni Stratensis, worked principally in Italy as a designer of cartoons for tapestries.

POSTEL, Guillaume.
Basle, Johannes Oporinus, [1553]. 8vo, pp. 135, woodcut initials in the text; a fine copy in modern vellum; a few contemporary marginal notes and underlinings, mainly at the beginning.First edition of Postel's investigations into the original language as a means to regain the primordial unity of mankind.During the immensely productive years 1552 and 1553, Postel constantly emphasized the need for action in order to unify the world. 'He was explicit about the practicality of his aims. Late in his career he wrote to Masius that his life's work had been a long effort to persuade Christendom to act. If it would only exert itself, how easily the world would pass from its terrible disorders into the eternal peace proclaimed by Christ! His sense of active purpose permeated even his most apparently academic works, such as his treatise De originibus of 1553. In this book he offered a profoundly Augustinian statement of purpose: "I have aimed to treat of both the original relationships of things and the methods by which we can reconcile them again in the completest peace; and I have tried to promote that end for which the world was created, universal peace"' (Bouwsma, Concordia Mundi p. 214).'Postel believed that language, that is, to know the names of things, was god's greatest gift to man In the De originibus seu de varia et potissimum orbi Latino ad hanc diem incognita aut inconsyderata historia Postel argues according to logic about God's gift of speech to mankind. Man is different from other animals because he can reason and speak. Therefore, the Greeks called man "animal logicu … [Click Below for Full Description]

CASTELVETRO LODOVICO
senza dati tipografici. Senza indicazioni tipografiche. 1 vol. in-8° (152 mm x 101 mm). [8] (ottava carta bianca), 176 c.; vignetta xilografica al frontespizio (la Civetta di Minerva sull'urna rovesciata col motto Greco KEKPIKA). Pergamena floscia probabilmente coeva con titolo in oro sul tassello al dorso (aggiunto successivamente). Leggere bruniture alle prime carte non numerate e alcune centrali, leggero foxing al margine bianco superiore di alcune pagine. Rare e sbiadite note ai margini bianchi. Ottimo lo stato di conservazione. Prima edizione di questa importante critica al componimento di Annibal Caro "Venite a l'ombra de gran gigli d'oro", colpevole di aver lodato la Casa Reale di Valois per incarico del cardinale Alessandro Farnese nel 1553. Secondo il Castelvetro la canzone non possedeva un suo stile (il linguaggio ricordava quello di Petrarca), era fredda e dai contenuti scadenti. Ne nacque quindi una polemica che generò, alla fine, l'opera qui presentata. Assai controverso l'anno di pubblicazione: Modena (1559), Cornelio Gadaldini o Venezia (1560), Andrea Arrivabene. In realtà, si tratta quasi certamente del medesimo materiale tipografico (di Arrivabene, in particolare) come confermato dal colophon finale che compare in un numero limitato di esemplari (cfr. Enrico Garavelli, "Appunti sull'impronta").

ARISTOTE / LE PLESSIS-PREVOST (Philippe)
Paris, Michel de Vascosan, 1553. 1 vol. in-4°, parchemin souple. Reliure moderne. Ex-libris Dugon ms. sur le titre (XVIe s.) Exemplaire réglé, une vignette gravée sur bois au v° du titre, lettres blanches historiées, (12) ff., 92 ff. Signatures : [aa-bb]4 [A-Z]4 Aa4. Quelques annotations marginales anciennes à l'encre brune, en partie coupées à la reliure. Rarissime édition originale de la traduction française par Philippe Le Plessis de l'Ethique à Nicomache d'Aristote. Il s'agit en fait de la traduction des cinq premiers livres seulement, et il ne semble pas que Le Plessis ait traduit la suite. On ne sait rien de la vie de ce traducteur, si ce n'est qu'il était le cousin du poète tourangeau Marc de Papillon de Laphrise et qu'il est également l'auteur des Triomphes faits à l'entrée du roy à Chenonceaux (imprimé à Tours en 1559). Dans sa dédicace au comte d'Aran, qu'il avait servi sans ses expéditions en Allemagne, il nous apprend qu'ayant été gravement malade lors de son retour à Metz, et depuis infirme, il avait décidé d'abandonner la carrière des armes pour celles des lettres. Bien qu'il se plaigne de la pauvreté de la langue française, son style est vif et coloré. Outre la longue dédicace, les pièces liminaires contiennent quelques vers de Le Plessis et de ses amis.

Cette compilation, établie par l'antiquaire italien Giacoppo Strada (1515-1588) et dédiée au fameux banquier suisse J.-J. Függer, donne les vies en abrégé des empereurs et membres de leur famille depuis Jules César jusqu'à l'époque de Charlemagne.

INNAMORAMENTO di CARLO MAGNO
Alessandro di Vian, 1553. in-4, ff. 291 n.n. su 304 (mancante di 13 ff. vari, compreso il titolo). Leg. antica in cartone. Testo su due colonne, al f. A2 vignetta di raffigurante un re in trono con lo scettro, circondato da guardie e cortigiani (mm 50x110), 154 deliziose piccole silografie n.t. (mm 40x25) con soggetti cavallereschi; i legni della presente edizione sono tratti da quella milanese del 1519. Il romanzo cavalleresco sugli amori di Carlo Magno apparve per la prima volta a stampa a Venezia nel 1481 e conobbe numerose ristampe, tutte estremamente rare. Composta in ottave di endecassillabi l'opera è nota suddivisa anziché in 77 in 74 canti, come in tutte le edizioni posteriori al 1514. Rarissimo: nessuna copia è infatti apparsa negli ultimi 30 anni sul mercato internazionale e sono noti solo due esemplari in Biblioteche Pubbliche italiane, a Roma e Ancona (Esempl. purtroppo incompleto e con lievi macchie e ombreggiature n.t).

De Reciprocatione sui, & suus, libellus eiusdem [Vallae]. Ad veterum denuo codicum fidem ab Ioanne Raenerio emendata omnia. Alcala de Henares, Bartolomeo de Robles, 1553 [1554 au colophon], petit in-8, basane bouteille, dos lisse orné de filets et guirlandes dorés, filets dorés encadrant les plats, tranches mouchetées [Reliure du XIXe siècle], dos et coupes frottés. 312 ff., 12 ff.n.ch. d'index, sign. A-Z, AA-SS, toutes en 8, sauf la dernière (en 4). Brunet V, 1054-1055 (éditions incunables). Edition espagnole peu commune d'un texte en revanche des plus abondamment publiés tout au long du XVIe siècle : oeuvre maîtresse de l'humaniste Lorenzo Valla (1407-1457), les Elegantiae, composées en 1444, et dont la première impression fut donnée à Rome en 1471, sont un manifeste vigoureux et polémique en faveur de l'emploi de la latinité "correcte" reprise des grands prosateurs de l'Antiquité (Cicéron, Sénèque, Quintillien) contre le latin ecclésiastique commun, alors d'un usage général, mais considéré comme abâtardi, maladroit, peu correct. Les idées de Valla enflammèrent tout ce que l'Europe comptait d'humanistes, et formèrent la Bible du langage correct pour deux siècles de prose néo-latine. Avant 1537, le livre avait déjà connu 60 rééditions sur toutes les presses de l'Europe. Exemplaire du célèbre collectionneur mexicain Joaquim Gomez de la Cortina, marquis de Morante (1808-1868), avec armes dorées poussées au centre des plats et vignette ex-libris contrecollée sur les premières gardes (Guigard, Armorial du bibliophile, II, pp. 372-375).

Ruscelli Girolamo (due opere di)
(Per Plinio Pietrasanta), 1553. In 4° piccolo (19,1x14,3 cm); due tomi in un volume: 287, (1) pp. e (6), 73 [i. e. 79], (1) pp. Legatura seicentesca in piena pergamena con titolo impresso in oro al dorso. Un lieve difetto al dorso. Qualche forellino di tarlo. Piccole antiche asportazoni di carta al margine basso e a metà del frontespizio per togliere antica firma di appartenenza privata (in minima parte visibile). Grande marca di Pietrasanta al primo frontespizio e grifone di Grifo al secondo frontespizio e all'ultima carta. Iniziali ornate. All'interno in buone condizioni di conservazione. Due prime edizioni del celebre cartografo e scrittore viterbese, Girolamo Ruscelli (Viterbo, 1518 circa - Venezia, 1566). L'autore, grande amico di Ludovico Dolce, scrisse i "Tre Discorsi" quando la loro amicizia era già incrinata da alcuni anni. Nel 1552 apparvero due edizioni del Decameron curata, una da Ruscelli ed edita dal Valgrisi e l'altra dal Dolce, edita per Giolito. L'opera qui stampata apparve per la prima volta nel 1553 edita da uno stampatore fino ad allora sconosciuto. In essa veniva ridicolizzato Dolce come "correttore", poeta e grammatico. Con il suo feroce attacco all'edizione del Decamerone edita dal Giolito, Ruscelli finì per criticare anche uno degli stampatori che più di chiunque altro, lo aveva edito e fatto conoscere. Il terzo discorso si riferisce alla traduzione di Ovidio fatta dal Dolce e pubblicata da Giolito nel 1553 con il titolo Le Trasformationi. La seconda opera, che prende spunto da un sonetto di Giovanni Battista d'Azzia per tracciare un importante disco … [Click Below for Full Description]

Queen Mary 1
The only such pardon we know of that has reached the marketMary I was the Queen of England and Ireland from July 1553 until her death in 1558. A strong Catholic in a nation converted by her father Henry VIII to Protestantism, she sought to restore her religion to power in England. She met opposition, and her ensuing executions of Protestants led to her posthumous sobriquet, "Bloody Mary". She was the only child of Henry VIII and his first wife Catherine of Aragon to survive to adulthood. Her younger half-brother Edward VI (son of Henry and Jane Seymour) succeeded their father in 1547; she also had a half-sister Elizabeth, daughter of Anne Boleyn, who would later become Queen and reign for 45 years. When King Edward became mortally ill in 1553, he attempted to remove Mary from the line of succession because of religious differences, instead naming Lady Jane Grey as his successor. He died on July 6, 1553. On July 9, Jane Gray was informed that she was now Queen, though according to her own later claims, accepted the crown only with reluctance. The next day, she was officially proclaimed Queen of England after she had taken up secure residence in the Tower of London, where English monarchs customarily resided from the time of accession until coronation.As soon as Mary was sure of King Edward's demise, she left her residence at Hunsdon and set out to East Anglia, where she began to rally her supporters. Her opposition left London with troops on July 14; the Privy Council then switched their allegiance from Jane to Mary, and proclaimed her Queen in London on July 19 among great … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALPINUS, Prosper (Prospero ALPINI).
Blake, p. 12; DSB I, pp. 124-125; Wellcome II, p. 36; cf. Morton 6468 (first edition). Early 18th-century edition of an important work on Egyptian medicine, written by the Venetian physician and botanist Prosper Alpinus (1553-1617), first published at Venice in 1591. As personal physician to a Venetian consul, Alpinus visited Egypt in 1580 and stayed there for three years. "Primarily an examination of contemporary Egyptian (i.e. Turkish) medicine, it ranks as one of the earliest studies of non-European medicine. Although he took a dim view of local customs, Alpinus was sufficiently impressed by novel therapeutic practices to introduce the technique of moxa into European medicine" (DSB). The work is written in the form of a dialogue with Guilandinus (1520-1589), Alpinus's former professor at the University of Padua, who had also visited Egypt. Following the Medicina Aegyptiorum are two other works by Alpinus: De balsamo dialogus and De rhapontico . The work closes with a text by the Dutch physician Jacobus Bontius (1592-1631): De medicina Indorum, libri IV .With a bookplate and some pencil notes on paste-down and some lines underscored with coloured pencil in quires 2O and 2P, not affecting the legibility of the text. General title-page and some margins slightly thumbed. Corners bumped. Otherwise in very good condition, wholly untrimmed.
