Ippolito Salviani
Rome, 1554. This early, folio engraving from Ippolito Salviani's Aquatilium Animalium Historiae, liber primus, cum eorundem formis, aere excuses. It is from the rare fist issue of the first edition published in Rome by Salvinaus between 1554 and 1558. The work featured various illustrations of fish and cephalapods. It was the first iconography of fishes that was illustrated with copperplate engravings that were printed with Salviani's own press.The engravings were detailed and very accurate, and thus gave the best early view of many of the species. It is noted that "the plates. in accuracy and beauty far surpass any figures published in the next 100 years." (Dean) The work depicted common fish, eels, sharks, skates, squids, and an octopus. Woods described the work as "an important, early and well-illustrated treatise on fishes."The design of the title page and many of the illustrations were attributed to Nicolas Beatricetto. It is generally assumed that Antonio Lafrery was the engraver. It is also theorized that Salviani commissioned sketches by B. Artenus, and that he produced many of these from fresh firsh at Roman markets. Beatricetto also seems to have drawn inspiration from the work of A. Masius, L. Ghini, and D. Barbatus.The work was dedicated to Pope Paul IV, though Salviani had intended it to be dedicated to Cardinal Marcello Cervini, who contributed both financially and in the gathering of material. Cervini's coat of arms does appear on the title page, however. Cervini later became Pope Marcellus II.Ippolito Salviani (1514-1572) served as the personal physician for … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gherardo Paolo, 1554. 4to (214x152 mm). [8], 135, [1] leaves. Collation: *4 †4 a-z4 A-L4. With the large woodcut portrait of the author on the title page and the printer's device on last leaf verso. Contemporary limp vellum, inked title on the spine and lower edge, remnants of ties (new endpapers, small stains). On title page manuscript ownership's inscription Ballybay Library. Inner margin of the title page reinforced, small holes to the gutter of the first two leaves with no loss of text, small ink stain on the upper blank margin at the end of the volume, otherwise a very good genuine copy. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION. First published in Bologna in 1546, containing only seventy-two chapters, the Ricordi appeared in an enlarged edition in 1549 (124 chapters) also in Bologna. The present, definitive, edition containing 133 "ricordi' was edited by Zaccaria Bellenghi, Fra Sabba's chaplain in Faenza, shortly after the latter's death. The work became very popular and between 1546 and 1613 twenty-five editions were published. In the present edition is also found for the first time the title woodcut showing Fra Sabba in his study. Ugo Rozzo (Lo studiolo nella silografia italiana, 1479-1558, Udine, 1998, pp. 90, 114), deems this frontispiece to be remarkable for the mid-sixteenth century both for its Hospitaller imagery and its display of books within the study. The woodcut is emblematic of Sabba's monastic life conducted within the Order's parameters of social utility.

López de Gómara, Francisco
1554. Antwerp. Iuan Steelsio. 8vo. 1 [blank], 349, 11 ff. Contemporary vellum, spine lettered in ink, yap edges, ties missing, upper hinge starting, a little worn as expected, overall fine and holding tight, likely the original binding. Short repaired tear to title page, some inconsequential spotting and staining as expected to few leaves, else in excellent condition preserved in the contemporary binding.- First edition of this title, and the first separately issued history of Mexico, "the first history of Mexico printed" (Wagner); the first edition of this work appeared in Zaragoza in 1552, this is the eight in total, printed only two years after the impossibly rare first. "[A]lmost all historians and bibliographers assert that when this work appeared, it was suppressed" (Wagner, Vol. 1, p. 81). The Historia de Mexico, here offered, is dedicated almost solely to Mexico, Cortes´ life, his voyages and expedition to Cuba, Santo Domingo, and Honduras, and the conquest of Mexico. Furthermore it includes valuable details on the life in America, native languages, ethnographical material, and as Wagner notes, is of exceptional importance for the history of California and the Southwest: records Cortés' expeditions to the western coast; the discovery and naming of California; Ulloa's voyages along the coast of Upper California; the preliminary journey to Cibola of Fray Marcos de Niza; and the expedition to the fabled Seven Cities by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado. "Including the expeditions of Cortés in 1535, Francisco de Ulloa in 1539, and Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo in 1542" (Mathes). … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARCUSSIA, Charles d'.
272, [8] pp.Very rare second edition, one year after the equally rare first edition, of one of the earliest French treatises on falconry and hawking, by Charles d'Arcussia (1554-1628), falconer to King Henri IV (and later to Louis XIII), who dedicates it to the king. "The work is much esteemed on account of its originality and the amount of information it contains" (Harting), "the outcome of long practice and an astonishing amount of research work in every subject connected with [Arcussia's] favourite sport [hawking]" (Schwerdt). Jean Tholosan published the first edition at Aix-en-Provence in 1598, but the USTC records only 3 copies of each, all in French libraries except for a copy of the present edition at the Wellcome Library in London. The six birds of prey illustrated are described as: De l'espece du faucon premier de noz oyseaux, Du Lanier Nyais, Du sacre, Du Gerfaut, De l'Emerillon and De l'Autour Nyais.With an 18th-century endleaf, a ca. 1800(?) monogram stamp on the title-page and a modern armorial bookplate. Washed and lacking F8 (supplied in facsimile), but that leaf contains only repeats of 2 engravings plus their captions and a 4-line verse, with no other text. Three other plates are slightly shaved, affecting the tip of one bird's tail (present in the repeat plate), the beak of another and a small bit of foliage in a third plate, a corner torn off 1 leaf (affecting one shoulder note), a small hole in another, a worm hole in the foot margin of the last few leaves and a faint water stain in the fore-edge margin of a few leaves.

AMIRA, Georgius Michaelis (Jiris ibn Mikha'il ibn ‘).
[44], 480 pp.First and only edition of the first extensive Syriac grammar, more than three and more than nine times as long as its only two predecessors: by Caninius representing the Syriac with Hebrew type (1554), and by Widmanstetter using serto Syriac type (1556). Syriac, a form of Aramaic used by several early Christian groups in the Middle East, is written with its own distinctive scripts. The Maronite priest Jiris ibn Mikha'il ibn ‘Amira wrote the present grammar (at the instigation of G.B. Raimondi, according to the preface), printed by the Maronite scholar Ya'qub ibn al-Hilal (Giacomo Luna), who had worked at the Medicean printing office under Raimondi and was responsible for the Arabic and Syriac publications it published from 1590 to 1594. In 1595 he started printing and publishing under his own name, using the imprint noted above, but still using the serto Syriac type that Jean Cavaillon cut in 1590 for Raimondi, who introduced it in the publications of the Medicean printing office in 1592. Amaduzzi treats publications of the Medicean, Luna's and Stefano Paolini's printing offices as predecessors of the Propaganda Fide's own office and therefore includes the present book in his catalogue of its work. The serto style of Syriac had largely replaced the estrangela as the principal book hand of the West Syriac regions in the eighth century, so most Syriac types followed that style. In the present book the table on pp. 2-3 showing Syriac alphabets also includes the estrangela and (for the first time) the East Syriac style sometimes called Nestorian, rarely seen in pri … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ALDINE PRESS] CATULLUS, Caius Valerius (circa 84-54 B.C.E)
Venice: Paulus Manutius Aldus, 1554. First edition with Muretus' commentary. Spine label chipped, joints light rubbed; title slightly soiled, some occasional worming, most marginal. Aldine 8vo (152 x 96 mm; 6 x 33/4 in.). Collation: *4, A-Q8 R10. Large Aldine woodcut device on title and verso of final leaf. Italic type, occasional Greek and Roman types. 19th-century brown calf gilt, all edges gilt. Provenance: discreet contemporary ownership inscription on title, a few annotations in text. Spine label chipped, joints light rubbed; title slightly soiled, some occasional worming, most marginal. The text includes the "Priapea." Marc Antoine Muret, or Muretus as he styled himself, was one of the great humanists of the Renaissance, and is often considered the greatest Latin prose stylist of the age. His commentary of Catullus first appears in this edition, issuing a "new age" of scholarship according to D. F. S. Thomson. Muretus was "reinforced by a greater knowledge of Greek [than his predecessors].... What is above all interesting in Muretus is the union, characteristic of French Humanism in that period, of poetry and scholarship" (Catullus, ed by D. F. S. Thomson, Toronto, 1997, pp. 48-49). It was Paulus Manutius, Aldus' third son and successor, who made a place in Venice for Meretus when the latter was forced into exile for pederasty. The publisher assigned him the editorship of a series of classical texts, with this edition of Catullus being the first. Adams C-1145; BM/STC Italian, p. 161; Brunet I:1682; Renouard 162:19..

Gaspara Stampa Rime Venezia, Plinio Pietrasanta 1554 Prima edizione Gaspara Stampa "Rime" stampato a Venezia, Plinio Pietrasanta nel 1554. "Questa è la prima edizione del Canzoniere di gaspara Stampa pubblicato dopo la sua morte dalla di lei sorella Cassandra Stampa, e da questa dedicato a Monsignore Giovanni Della casa . Le prime otto carte contengono il frontespizio, la dedicatoria, Rime di vari in onore dell' autrice ed una lettera della medesima a Collaltino Conte di Collalto di lei amante con cui gli accompagna alcune sue rima amorose......(Ferri). A Collaltino è dedicata la maggior parte delle 311 rime della Stampa (pubblicate dalla sorella Cassandra nel 1554 e dedicate a Giovanni Della Casa), che, concepite secondo il modello petrarchesco, costituiscono una delle più interessanti raccolte liriche del Cinquecento fra cui Arsi, piansi, cantai; piango, ardo e canto. Daniele Ponchiroli ha definito così queste rime: «Umanamente complesso, ricco di "moderna" psicologia, il canzoniere della Stampa, che la nostra romantica sensibilità ha visto soprattutto come un "ardente diario" amoroso, risente dell'inquieta originalità di una vicenda umana "confessata" con femminile espansione. Nessun altro canzoniere cinquecentesco ci offre un così vivo interesse documentario e psicologico». Luigi Baldacci ha detto: «Il valore della sua poesia, la sua possibilità di suscitare un'eco, consistono nell'aver saputo quasi sempre rifiutare l'esperienza retorica dei contemporanei e nell'essersi umiliata il più delle volte, secondo un'elezione istintiva, a un uso della poesia che certo quel seco … [Click Below for Full Description]

Venezia, heirs of Pietro Ravani and associates, 1554. circa 14,4 x 8 cm. 24 ff., 252 num ff., with printer's device on title and 26 full-page woodcut illustrations Contemporary vellum. - Adams F 694 (one copy, defective); Brunet II, 1318; Graesse II, 608. Uncommon illustrated edition of the macaronic poetry of Teofilo Folengo (1491-1544) from Mantova, first published without illustrations in 1517 and here with 26 pretty woodcuts. Contains apart from shorter poems the love story Zani Tonnella, the Moscheis (Battle of the flies) and the now 25 books of the mock-heroic adventures of King Baldus that Folengo adapted and enlarged four times beginning with only 17 parts at first. The text is composed of Latin vers blended with words of the vernacular that are being Latinised. Folengo not only presented a parody of the poetry of Vergil but at the same time also tried to emulated his style. The macaronic genre goes back to Tifi Odasi who also lived in Mantua in the second half of the 15th century. With Folengo it has reached its pinnacle. - Only about the first 10 leaves with a small waterstain to the lower margin, very little old underlining, mostly clean inside. Binding a little rubbed and dusty, laces gone. Altogether nice - rare edition with pretty woodcuts.

MÜNSTER, Sebastian.
Cosmographiae universalis lib. VI.[Basel, Heinrich Petri, September 1554]. Folio. With woodcut printers device on the final leaf by Urs Graf, 14 double-page maps, 37 double-page views and approximately 900 woodcuts in the text. Modern vellum. [12], 1162, [2] pp. A very early edition of Münsters monumental atlas and encyclopedia, first published in 1550. The Cosmographia by Sebastian Münster (1488-1552), a German cartographer and cosmographer, was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century and can be regarded as the earliest German atlas of the world. Although the Cosmographia is a detailed geographic work, its text and woodcuts (and the figures in the maps) also provide much information on other subjects. They discuss and illustrate people from all over the world and their cultural habits, natural history, including elephants and rhinos, and other matters. This encyclopaedic work was a major project, which Münster couldn't carry out alone: he elicited information from others about the towns and other places he described, and several artists, including Hans Holbein, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch and David Kandel, assisted him with the drawings. Münster himself drew the 14 double-page maps, including two world maps.Münster describes not only Germany, Central Europe, Africa, Asia and the Holy Land, but also America, referring to the voyages and discoveries of early explorers, including Columbus. The Cosmographias novelty rests not only on the fact that Münster was the first to depict each of the continents in its own map, but also because of the r … [Click Below for Full Description]

With several woodcut decorated initials. With the 4 preliminary leaves in facsimile. 20th-century Portuguese tree calf, gold-tooled spine, red spine label, brown sprinkled edges, marbled endpapers. [8], "CCCI" [= 303], [1 blank], [20] pp. Rare first and only Portuguese edition of a classic biography of Thomas à Becket (ca. 1118-1170), Archbishop of Canterbury. It is a free translation into Portuguese, probably by Diego Afonso de Miranda, of the Latin "quadrilogus", a conflation of four biographies written by Beckets contemporaries, which was the first biography of Becket to be printed, published in four books in 1495 (that edition added a supplementary fifth book containing documents and letters, not included in the present translation). The quadrilogus brings together information from four of the most important primary sources, written soon after Beckets death by William of Canterbury (active 1170-1174), John of Salisbury (1120-1180), Herbert of Bosham (Beckets own clerk, active 1162-1189) and Alan of Tewkesbury (d. 1202). There are two versions of the quadrilogus: the earlier one, compiled ca. 1198/99, was not published until 1682, while the present one, compiled ca. 1212/13 was first printed in 1495. The present is therefore confusingly known both as the "second quadrilogus" and as "quadri … [Click Below for Full Description]

Set in roman and italic types. Contemporary (Antwerp?) calf, blind-tooled boards, showing a frame made from a vine, leaf and flower roll edged with triple fillets. "220" [= 225], [6], [1 blank] ll. First edition in Spanish of an essential source for any study of Portuguese India, first published in Portuguese at Coimbra in 1551, here including the author's prologue and the publisher's dedication to the Spanish historian Luis de Ávila y Zuniga (ca. 1490-ca. 1560) in Rome. It is the first of eight "books", often published as separate volumes, on the history of Portuguese voyages of discovery and military conquests in India. It was written by Fernão Lopes de Castanheda (ca. 1500-1559), born in Santarém, north of Lisbon. As a young man he accompanied his father, a judge at Goa, to India and probably the Moluccas, living there from 1528 to 1538. During that decade he collected information about Portugal's exploration and conquests in India, from both documentary and oral sources and from events and circumstances he witnessed himself. In that way he amassed an extraordinary knowledge on the subject, much of it not available in any other source. On his return to Portugal he took a minor administrative post at the University of Coimbra and began writing his monumental history. The present first book covers the history to 1505. Its first edition, in Portuguese, is extremely rare, suppos … [Click Below for Full Description]

[44], [4 blank], 499, [8], [5 blank] pp. Third edition in the original Latin, of the first part of Conrad Gesner's very popular book of secrets. It primarily concerns distillation and its use in making medicines, with most of the woodcuts illustrating furnaces, glassware and other equipment for distilling. It discusses the various kinds of distillation, the equipment and techniques, aqueous solutions, the making of medicines from a wide variety of plants, animals and minerals (including metal salts), extracting oils, etc."The work begins with a short historical introduction which says that the Greeks and Romans could not yet distil and claims that the art was invented by the Barbarians, Carthaginians and Arabs shortly after the famous Hellenistic physicians. He gives a few short notes on Arabian scientists like Mesue, Avicenna and Bulcasis, describing their methods of making rose-oil" (Forbes).Conrad Gesner (1516-1565), a Zurich scholar of remarkable breadth who wrote on bibliography, botany, zoology, medicine and pharmacology, published the first volume of his De remediis secretis in 1552 under the pseudonym Euonymus Philiatrus.

Set in Aldine-style italic types (with upright capitals) with incidental roman. Contemporary limp vellum. "390" [= 380] ll. Second Sansovino edition of Boccaccio's first important work, Il Filocolo (here Filocopo), a prose romance written ca. 1334-1336, about twenty years before the Decameron. Boccaccio reworked the 12th-century French love story of Floire (Florio), muslim Prince of Andalusia, and Blancheflor (Biancifiore), the orphaned daughter of his mother's Roman Christian lady-in-waiting. They grow up together in the royal household, but when they fall in love his parents try to break up the romance by selling her to merchants who will take her to Alexandria to join a harem. Florio, under the pseudonym Filocopo, rescues and marries her. He converts to Christianity and they return home where he ascends the throne and his people embrace Christianity. Boccaccio introduced many new elements into the story and told it with his usual flare for (often risqué) humour. It served as inspiration for writers around the world from Chaucer to Keats, and Boccaccio himself further developed several episodes for stories in his Decameron.Francesco Sansovino (1521-1583) had produced the first variorum edition of the Decameron in 1546 and then turned his editorial scholarship to Il … [Click Below for Full Description]

Both the poems and the commentaries appear here in the original Latin. Poems 18 and 19 are addressed to the fertility god Pirapus, best known for his enormous perpetual erection, and poem 20 is also a Priapeia. Many are addressed to "Lesbia", whom Catullus passionately loved. He gave her this pseudonym in allusion to the Greek love poems of Sappho from the Island of Lesbos, which influenced him strongly. She is generally identified as Clodia, the wife of a Roman nobleman. Catullus was one of her several lovers and he names and rails against some of the others. While Catullus's greatest passions were heterosexual, poems 48, 50 and 99 express romantic and sexual interests in men.

Antwerp: Joannes Steelsius (Steels), 1554. ADVICE ON DEATH FROM AMERBACH'S KIDS' BABYSITTER ¶ 192 leaves | 16mo | A-2A^8 | 95 x 72 mm ¶ Third edition of this guide to dying well, preceded by editions in 1549 and 1551. Oporinus also issued in 1551 a separate 21-page edition of the final section, Ad quaestionem ei propositam..., absent from the first edition but included here. New to this third edition are Baer's exegesis of Psalm 144, Cyprian's Sermo de mortalitate, and John Chrysostom's De patientia sermon. Addressed to the sick and healthy alike, Baer's book is replete with advice on living a good God-fearing life, preparing for the end, practicing patience in times of illness, withstanding the horrors of demons, and much more. ¶ Death, for want of a better expression, was a familiar part of life in early modern Europe, a high level of mortality being "one of the most important and distinctive traits of family life in the past" (Barbagli and Kertzer). Some half of children didn't reach the age of ten and many would experience the death of a parent. And if you managed to survive the hazards of childhood, adult life expectancy ran roughly 25-35 years, depending on one's circumstances. "The frequency of death at an early age did not make people inured to grief, but did make having a 'good death' a matter for all ages. Mothers were expected to instruct their children in how to have a good death, and to provide an example and spiritual model in their own deaths. Stories of good deaths were the subject of funeral sermons, which were gathered in collections and publis … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fastorum libri XII nuper in lucem editi Luogo di stampa: Mediolani Editore: Apud Franciscum Simonem Moschenios Fratres Anno: 1554 Condizioni: leggere attentamente la descrizione nella scheda In 16, carte (4) + 121 + (7). Legatura in p. pg. settecentesca. Esemplare rifilato al marg. superiore. Edizione originale postuma prima e unica di questo poema ispirato ai fasti ovidiani, opera di questo autore originario di Pizzighettone. Studiando tra Lodi e Cremona, divenne un buon conoscitore della letteratura latina e greca come anche della letteratura cristiana. Questa edizione postuma sembrerebbe essere stata curata da Giangiacomo Gabiani, insegnante di Lodi che dedica il poema al Papa Paolo III. Seguendo lo schema dei fasti ovidiani, l'opera e' divisa in dodici mesi. Di ogni mese e' data l'etimologia e la storia con invocazione a personaggi pagani e cristini, avvenimenti tratti dal vecchio e nuovo testamento, descrizione di personaggi storici e molti riferimenti cosmologici. Molti sono anche i riferimenti a fatti storici come le guerre tra il Ducato di Milano e la Repubblica veneta che coinvolsero anche Pizzighettone. Sandal, p. 125. Bibliotheca roveriana, II, p. 201. Colbacchini, p. 71.

Tito Mácio Plauto, em latim, Titus Maccius Plautus (Sarsina, cerca de 230 a.C. - 180 a.C.) foi um dramaturgo romano, que viveu durante o período republicano. As suas 20 peças que se preservaram até os nossos dias datam do período entre os anos de 205 a.C. e 184 a.C. Estas obras são das mais antigas em latim preservadas integralmente até os dias de hoje e são quase todas adaptações de modelos gregos para o público romano, tal como ocorria na mitologia e na arquitetura romanas. Plauto criou tipos que foram constantemente imitados e as suas obras exerceram uma profunda e vasta influência na cultura ocidental e serviram de modelos para muitos dos maiores escritores, tais como Shakespeare, Molière, Camões (Comédia Enfatrião) e muitos outros.

Giraldi Cintio, Giovanni Battista (1504-1573)
Venice:, 1554. FIRST EDITION.. Quarto:. Contemporary limp vellum, colored edges, some light marginal foxing, v. light stain on p. 80. A very nice copy with the 18th-c. engraved bookplate of Felice Durando Count of Villa (1729-1791), famous for his erudition and his famous library. With the printer's device on the title page and at the end of the volume. FIRST EDITION of Giraldi's most important contribution to literary criticism and his most lasting influence on dramatic theory and practice. Almost all the main issues in Renaissance dramatic criticism are examined somewhere in his various works and prefaces. Giraldi rejected the Greek arrangement of plays into prologue, episodes, and choral odes and returned to the five acts of the Roman theatre. He reasoned that a good play should first present the argument, direct the argument toward its end, present obstacles to its resolution, offer a means of removing the obstacles, and end with a resolution, all arranged in five acts. In contrast to only three or four speaking parts in some Greek plays, he increased the number of actors used in a play to as many as twenty. Following Seneca, he emphasized the function of the messenger, whose arrivals and reports cause the audience to experience 'all the horror and compassion which are the pith of the plot'. Consequently, he used soliloquies freely. In drama he preferred verse, rhymed or unrhymed, to prose and favored the separation of stylistic levels between comedy and tragedy. He believed that the proper function of tragedy was both to teach and to delight as well as to induce w … [Click Below for Full Description]
