Woodcut on title-page. 2 full-page woodcuts (printer devise Olaus Magnus-Viottii)(58),787,(1 - Errata),(2 - Colophon) pp. and 238 woodcuts in the text and one full-page woodcut map (a smaller copy of Olaus Magnus Carta marina, published 1555). A few minor marginal brownspots at end. printed on good paper. Internally clean and fine.. First edition, first issue. "This famous history was written in Venice in 1540, where the author was then living as a catholic refugee - he had left Sweden in 1526. In it, the Gothic romantic conception of Sweden as the "vagina gentium", the idea of Jordanes, 6th century chronicler of the Goths, is developed in a history of Swedish kings both at home and abroad leading the migrating peoples. The conception had alredy been adopted by mediaeval Swedish historians and was the leading ideology of Swedish patriotism in the 17th century when the text was translated into Swedish (1620). The book was posthumously published by the author's brother Olaus Magnus, who dedicated it to Pope Julius III as well as to the Swedish Crown Prince Erik."

        L'ART DE NAVIGUER DE MAISTRE PIERRE DE MEDINE, ESPAIGNOL: CONTENANT TOUTES LES REIGLES, SECRETS, & ENSEIGNEMENS NECESSAIRES À LA BONNE NAVIGATION...

      Lyon: Chez Guillaume Rouille, 1554. Folio. Contemporary calf; rebacked to style, gilt leather label. Corners rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Slight loss to edges of titlepage, neatly repaired; lightly soiled. Minor soiling and worming to lower margin throughout. Final two leaves experlty restored. Map with closed tear in gutter margin, neatly repaired; lower margin reinforced. Very good. First edition in French, second issue with the 1554 imprint on the titlepage. Medina's work, first published in Spanish in Valladolid in 1545, was the first practical treatise on navigation. It was also the first work to give reliable information on the navigation of American waters, as Medina - said to have been one of Cortes' captains - based his information on the first-hand experiences of pilots and masters of the ships using the West Indies trade route. This the second edition overall, and the first translation out of Spanish, enabling the rest of Europe to challenge Spanish hegemony of the seas. It became a popular standard text in the 16th-century, and was translated into Italian in 1554, and later into English and Dutch. The extremely important map of the Atlantic and adjacent coastal regions, "Novveau monde" by Nicolas de Nicolay is of high quality and greater detail than the map in the first edition. It depicts the North American coastline from Labrador all the way down to Central and northern South America, labeling Florida and the islands of the West Indies, as well as Mexico and locales in South America. The right side of the map shows Europe and Africa across the Atlantic. A work of great rarity and importance, and the earliest edition after the extremely rare Spanish first edition, with a highly important map which does not appear there. The Frank Streeter copy realized $93,600 in 2007. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 554/44. PALAU 159669. BURDEN 19. SABIN 47345.

        AQUATILIUM ANIMALIUM HISTORIAE, liber primus, cum eorundem formis, aere excuses ¿

      - Very rare first issue of the first edition. Romae: (Salvianus), M.D.L.IIII (1554 -1558), Folio: 41.0 x 28.0 cm, [8], 1- 257 p.p. (misprinted page number on last leaf, should be 255). With a copperplate engraved title-page bearing a medallion portrait of Salviani himself, set in an elaborate scrollwork frame decorated with shells, turtles, mermaids, and putti riding dolphins. With a dedication to Pope Paul IV, and not, as Salviani had originally intended, to Cardinal Marcello Cervini who contributed both financially and in the gathering of material. However on the title page the coat of arms of Cardinal Marcello Cervini, consisting of a unicorn underneath a cardinal¿s hat with tassels and cords, has been depicted above the title. Around the axis of Cervini¿s coat of arms new elements have been added, including 6 small French lilies, a child¿s face and a crucifix right underneath the cardinal¿s hat. The work includes 81 full-page copper engravings of 98 (numbered 1-53 and 55-99, with 54 omitted in the numbering) illustrations of fish and cephalopods. 37 of the full-page engravings, ff. 57, 59, 80, 82, 87, 89, 91, 94, 96, 98, 103, 105, 107, 110, 112, 119, 135, 148, 151, 154, 159, 169, 174, 178, 183, 187, 190, 192, 194, 196, 201, 203, 206, 227, 230, 233, and 240, with blank versos. The engravings on ff. 112, 130, 149 and 206, depicting a sturgeon; a tope; a skate; and a trigger-fish, bear correction slips in letter press pasted over the engraved captions. With historiated initials throughout the work. The front flyleaf of our copy bears a watermark of a French lily. In addition four other pages bear ecclesial watermarks. We have been unable to identify these, and they do not appear to have been described in any reference work. Bound in contemporary calf, which has been skillfully rebacked. Flawless except for some minor tears not affecting text and images which have been skillfully repaired a long time ago. A superb and complete copy of the very rare first issue of the first edition. Salviani¿s Aquatilium animalium historiae (1554-1558) is the first iconography of fishes illustrated with copperplate engravings, most of Salviani¿s contemporaries opting for woodcut illustrations which were cheaper and easier to produce but also less beautiful. The superbly produced depictions were printed on Salviani¿s own press. The design of the title-page and several of the images have been attributed to Nicolas Beatricetto and it is generally assumed that Antonio Lafrery was the engraver. Another current theory is that Salviani commissioned sketches of Italian fishes from B. Aretinus, who produced them after fresh specimens purchased at Roman fish markets. It is thought that Beatricetto based his drawings on these sketches as well as on depictions obtained from a number of other sources including A. Masius, L. Ghini, and D. Barbatus. The sources of Salviani¿s depictions of species that were not common in Italy (native to Germany, England and Greece) are not known, it is assumed that Cardinal Marcello Cervini, who later became Pope Marcellus II, obtained these depictions of foreign species from his international contacts. As the personal physician of Pope Julius III and subsequently of Marcellus II and Paul III Salviani held an important position within the Vatican. In addition to this he taught practical medicine at the Sapienza University in Rome from 1551 to 1568. Salviani obtained his first privilege for the Aquatilium Animalium, as well as a stipend to complete the work, from Pope Marcellus II in 1551. However it would take several more years before the work was finished, and a second privilege was obtained from Henry II from France in November 1554. This also proved premature, as at this stage only the title-page was completed. After the death of Pope Marcello II in 1555, work on the Aquatilium Animalium slowed down significantly. The work was finally finished in 1557 and was published under a privilege of Pope Paulus IV. There a [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. First published in 1546 the second edition was the first to contain the Addendum to Book VI, which is an early important treatise on fortification. Niccolo Fontana Tartaglia (1499-1557), born in Brescia, was an Italian mathematician who originated the science of ballistics which he first treated in his earlier work Nova Scientia. The first two books in the Quesiti consist of dialogues on this subject, the first with the cannon founder Alberghetto di Alberghetti, the third book is on gunpowder, the fourth on military formations in battle, the fifth on the geometer's compass is a dialogue with his friend Richard Wentworth, Henry VIII's envoy in Venice (the entire book is dedicated to Henry VIII of England), the sixth, as noted, on fortifications, the seventh and eighth are on mechanics and the final ninth book is on problems in arithmetic and ends with the famous correspondence with Cardan on their rival claims to have been the first to solve cubic equations.

        Delle nozze: trattato del Fausto da Longiano, in cui si leggono i riti, i costumi, gl'instituti, le cerimonie, et le solennità di diversi antichi popoli, ende si sono tratti molti problemi; & aggiuntiui, i precetti matrimoniali di Plutarco.

      In Venetia: Per Plinio Pietrasanta 4to (21.5 cm; 8.5"). 45, [3] pp.. 1554 First of two editions (second was 1569) of Fausto's study of marriage, divorce, and the status of women in the Classic era in Rome, India, Arabia, Persia, Macedonia, Greece, and Germany. Topics discussed include dowries, privileges of married women, customs in selecting wives, marriage rites and institutions, methods of solemnizing marriage, duties of wives, and adultery. Fausto, by turns a soldier, lawyer, traveller, friend of Andrea Palladio, and member of the Academia dei Constanti, augments his text with abstracted portions of Plutarch's Conjugalia praecepta. The work was written in commemoration of the marriage of Virginia Fieschi (daughter of Ettore Fieschi, Count of Lavagna and Savignone) to Jacopo VI Appiani d’Aragona (Prince of Piombino). The printer, Pietrasanta, begins the volume with a handsome title-page defined by a large woodcut architectural border, then prints the text in italic with a scattering of 8- and 10-line historiated woodcut initials that => bear looking at. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only three copies in U.S. libraries. 18th-century half vellum over boards, "wallpaper'"sides; back cover sometime cracked across top corner and front one creased across, repaired (at the time?) and now strong.

Minor worming in inner margins, well removed from text; gathering "C" browned with some migration to leaves opposite C1 and C4. => A very acceptable copy.

        Delle nozze: trattato del Fausto da Longiano, in cui si leggono i riti, i costumi, gl'instituti, le cerimonie, et le solennità di diversi antichi popoli, ende si sono tratti molti problemi; & aggiuntiui, i precetti matrimoniali di Plutarco.

      In Venetia: Per Plinio Pietrasanta 4to (21.5 cm; 8.5"). 45, [3] pp.. 1554 First of two editions (second was 1569) of Fausto's study of marriage, divorce, and the status of women in the Classic era in Rome, India, Arabia, Persia, Macedonia, Greece, and Germany. Topics discussed include dowries, privileges of married women, customs in selecting wives, marriage rites and institutions, methods of solemnizing marriage, duties of wives, and adultery. Fausto, by turns a soldier, lawyer, traveller, friend of Andrea Palladio, and member of the Academia dei Constanti, augments his text with abstracted portions of Plutarch's Conjugalia praecepta. The work was written in commemoration of the marriage of Virginia Fieschi (daughter of Ettore Fieschi, Count of Lavagna and Savignone) to Jacopo VI Appiani d?'Aragona (Prince of Piombino). The printer, Pietrasanta, begins the volume with a handsome title-page defined by a large woodcut architectural border, then prints the text in italic with a scattering of 8- and 10-line historiated woodcut initials that => bear looking at. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only three copies in U.S. libraries. 18th-century half vellum over boards, "wallpaper'"sides; back cover sometime cracked across top corner and front one creased across, repaired (at the time?) and now strong. Front pastedown with evidence of a bookplate's removal and with an old pressmark ("26.1.88") in upper left corner. Minor worming in inner margins, well removed from text; gathering "C" browned with some migration to leaves opposite C1 and C4. => A very acceptable copy.

Nouamente ricorrette, & in diuerse parti accresciute di molte cose, che nell'esemplare latino mancauano, e con nuoua tauola di tutto quello, che vi si contiene non piu ne latina ne volgar stampata.

      In Vinegia: per Comin da Trino, 1554. - In-4 (13) 244 c. Antiporta con titolo iscritto in cornice architettonica, xilografia a piena pagina rappresentante la giustizia seduta tra due leoni (Venezia?), capilettera figurati. Piena pergamena coeva, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Ex libris manoscritto "Paolo Ferrero". Tracce di bruciatura all'estremo lembo superiore delle prime carte, dorso restaurato. Esemplare molto fresco. Marcantonio Coccio Sabellico è generalmente considerato il primo "storico ufficiale della Repubblica" ; in realtà egli non venne incaricato "per pubblico decreto", ma offrì la sua opera spontaneamente e la Serenissima accettò l'offerta, ricompensandolo adeguatamente; partendo proprio dalla sua Storia, venne creata la figura dello "Storiografo ufficiale della Repubblica": egli trattò la storia dal principio dell Repubblica al 1487. Le Historie vennero stampate per la prima volta in latino nel 1487 da Andrea Torresani, socio di Aldo Manuzio; la prima edizione italiana è quella tradotta dal Vesconte e pubblicata attorno al 1505 senza gli utlimi tre libri; nel 1544 vide la luce la prima traduzione italiana completa degli ultimi libri ad opera di Lodovico Dolce. Dieci anni dopo venne stampata dai torchi di Comin da Trino la edizione italiana definitiva, "accresciute di molte cose, che nell'esemplare latino mancavano". Le Historie narrano gli eventi che vanno dal principio della Repubblica al 1486. Marco Antonio Coccio Sabellico nacque a Vigovaro attorno al 1436 da famiglia agiata; molto giovane si trasferì a Roma, dove compì i suoi studi sotto la direazione di grandi maestri quali Pomponio Mela e Domizio di Verona. Nominato professore di Belle Lettere a Udine, divenne tanto famoso per la sua erudizione umanistica da essere poco dopo chiamato ad insegnare a Venezia, ove morì nel 1506. Cicogna 568.

        Discorsi di M. Giovambattista Giraldi Cinthio nobile ferrarese,.. intorno al comporre de i Romanzi, delle Comedie, e delle Tragedie, e di altre maniere di Poesie. Con la tavola delle cose piu notabili in tutti essi discorsi contenute

      Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari e fratelli 1554 In 4to (cm 21,5), pergamena floscia coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli colorati, pp. (8), 287, (29). Marca tipografica al titolo ed in fine. Capilettera e testatine istoriate. Bellissima copia marginosa.PRIMA EDIZIONE dell'importante contributo dato dal Giraldi alla teoria letteraria e alla codificazione di nuovi e vecchi generi (tragedia, tragicommedia, satira, egloga, commedia, romanzo, poema eroico), di cui egli stesso nel corso della sua carriera diede vari esempi (cfr. R. Bruscagli, G.B. Giraldi: comico, satirico, tragico, in "Il teatro italiano del Rinascimento"?, Milano, 1980, pp. 261 - 283). La presente edizione comprende sia il discorso Intorno al comporre delle commedie e delle tragedie (composto nel 1543), sia il discorso Intorno al comporre dei romanzi (scritto nel 1549 e dedicato a G.B. Pigna), che ebbero inizialmente solo diffusione manoscritta e che costituiscono una testimonianza fondamentale e imprescindibile per comprendere la grande stagione poetica della seconda metà  del secolo dominata dal Guarini e dal Tasso. Giraldi, pur prendendo spunto dalla Poetica di Aristotele, se ne distanzia fortemente, soprattutto nell'ambito del romanzo, che egli individua come un nuovo genere prettamente italiano, ma paragonabile al poema epico degli antichi, e che ha nell'Ariosto il suo modello principale (cfr. B. Weinberg, A History of Literary Criticism in the Italian Renaissance, Chicago, 1961, pp. 444 e 967). «Les premières tentatives de codification du roman eurent lieu en Italie, au début de la deuxième moitié du XVIe siècle, au cours d'une importante querelle qui opposa les partisans des anciens, favorables à  l'épopée telle qu'elle avait été définie par Aristote dans la Poétique , aux partisans des modernes, favorables aus poèmes chevaleresques (appelés également "romans"?) et dont les exemples les plus significatifs étaient à  l'époque le Roland amoureux de Boiardo, le Roland furieux de l'Arioste et l'Amadis de Bernard Tasse[..] Jean Georges Trissino, le plus influent des représentants des anciens, favorable en outre à  une interprétation rigide de la Poétique d'Aristote, affirme en effet dans l'épà®tre dédicatoire à  Charles Quint de son poème héroique L'Italie délivrée des Goths, publié en 1547 et en 1548, avoir voulu dans cette oeuvre (en polémique avec la multiplicité d'actions des poèmes chevaleresques) décrire une seule action d'un seul homme[..] Trois importants théoriciens ont répliqué, quoique d'une façon indirecte, à  Trissino: Simon Fornari, en 1549, dans sa Brève apologie du "Roland furieux"? considéré dans son ensemble, Jean - Baptiste Giraldi, en 1554, dans son Discours sur la composition des romans, et Jean - Baptiste Pigna, toujours en 1554, dans Les Romans. Fornari et Pigna ne polémiquent toutefois nullement contre le Stagirite et s'efforcent au contraire de démonstrer que les poèmes chevaleresques (et, en particulier, le plus significatif d'entre eux, le Roland furieux de l'Arioste) peuvent fort bien être convenablement interprétés à  l'aide de catégories aristotéliciennes. Giraldi, par contre, affirme que les règles d'Aristote ne peuvent être valables dans le cas du roman, étant donné que ce sous - genre narratif n'était pas encore né à  l'époque où le Stagirite s'interrogeait sur la spécificité de la poésie, de la littérature» (G. Giorgi, a cura di, Les poétiques italiennes du «roman». Simon Fornari, Jean - Baptiste Giraldi Cinzio, Jean - Baptiste Pigna, Paris, 2005, pp. 11 - 13). Nel 1567, mentre si trovava a Torino, Giraldi regalò ad un gentiluomo, tale V. Troni, che gliene aveva fatto richiesta, l'unica copia in suo possesso della presente edizione. Si tratta dell'esemplare attualmente conservato a Ferrara, che reca fitte postille e correzioni di mano dell'autore (cfr. G.B. Giraldi, Discorsi intorno al comporre rivisti dall'autore nell'esemplare ferrarese Cl. I 90, a cura di S. Villari, Messina, 2002, pp. I - CLXV). G.B. Cinzio studiò dapprima medicina e filosofia, poi lettere umane, succedendo nella cattedra al maestro C. Calcagnini nel 1541. Durante il ducato di Ercole II d'Este e negli anni del circolo di Renata di Francia fu il protagonista incontrastato del panorama culturale ferrarese. Nel 1563, in seguito ad un contrasto avuto con i duchi della sua città , andò in volontario esilio prima a Mondovì, poi a Torino ed infine a Pavia. Fra i suoi allievi ricordiamo soprattutto G.B. Pigna, con il quale il Giraldi ebbe un violento scontro proprio in merito al discorso sui romanzi che il Pigna pubblicò nel 1554 (I Romanzi, Venezia, Valgrisi), suscitando le ire e le accuse di plagio del vecchio maestro (cfr. Weinberg, op. cit., pp. 433 - 452, inoltre G.B. Giraldi Cinzio, Discorso dei romanzi, a cura di L. Benedetti, G. Monorchio e E. Musacchio, Bologna, 1999, passim). La fama e l'influenza del Giraldi non si limitarono all'ambiente ferrarese, ma ebbero una risonanza europea. A lui si deve infatti la rinascita europea del teatro senechiano con le sue tinte fosche e le sue cruenze, in aperta opposizione alla formula trissiniana (cfr. P.R. Horne, The Tragedies of Giambattista Cinthio Giraldi, London, 1962, passim). \ Cfr. inoltre P. Cherchi, M. Rinaldi e M. Tempera, a cura di, Giovan Battista Giraldi Cinzio gentiluomo ferrarese, Firenze, 2008, passim. Edit16, CNCE21262. Adams , G - 701. Bongi, I, pp. 427 - 429. Weinberg, op. cit., p. 1129. J.

Probably in 1524 he moved to Basel, where he lived in Erasmus' household. He spent the remainder of his life working for the as a scholar, editor, corrector, and translator from the Greek, even declining a position as professor of Greek at Nuremberg for which he was recommended by Melanchthon in 1525 and 1526. in his day there cannot have been many major productions of the Froben press which did not benefit from his selfless scholarly devotio. There is also evidence that he collaborated on a number of editions by Erasmus.

        De Confessione Amantis [Edited by Thomas Berthelet]

      London: Thomas Berthelet, 1554, March 11.. VERY RARE, only the third edition, after Caxton's first of 1483 and Berthelet's second of 1532. THIS COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE: The Abel Berland Copy. Gothic type. Title within woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 26), several woodcut initials throughout. 4to, in sixes (267 x 188 mm), in very fine 19th century English full red morocco gilt, the boards gilt-paneled in impressive Restoration style, the spine with esquisitely gilt tooled compartments between gilt ruled and stippled bands, lettered in one compartment and at the foot in gilt, the page edges beautifully gauffered in gilt, the board edges and turn-ins gilt tooled, endpapers marbled. A very fine and impressive binding. [6 ff], CXCL ff. A very fine and beautiful copy with many generations of fine provenance. The binding very fine and handsome, strong and in excellent state, the text quite clean and fresh and well preserved, title with lower inner margin expertly repaired, a few wormholes occasionally touching letters, N3 shaved close at head, small rust-hole on Z6 catching a few letters only, annotations in several early hands, occasional penciled marginalia, final blank renewed. VERY RARE EARLY PRINTING OF AN IMPORTANT ENGLISH WORK. Johnson wrote in his Dictionary: "He that reads the works of Gower will find smooth numbers and easy rhymes, of which Chaucer is supposed to have been the inventor, and the French words, whether good or bad, of which Chaucer is charged as the inventor." The Confessio Amantis is a poem which uses the confessions made by an aging lover to the chaplain of Venus as a frame story for a collection of shorter narrative poems. According to its prologue, it was composed at the request of Richard II. It stands with the works of Chaucer and Langland as the great works of 14th century English literature. For sources Gower relied largely on Ovid, but others include the Bible and various other classical writers. These were sources shared by Gower's with his close friend, Geoffrey Chaucer. CONFESSIO has two stories also told in the CANTERBURY TALES, the tale of Florent, also told by the Wife of Bath, and the tale of Constance, which in Chaucer is the Man of Lawes Tale. Another one of Gower's narratives, 'Apollonius of Tyre' served as a source for William Shakespeare. Shakespeare drew from it the plot for his 'Pericles', and introduces Gower himself as Chorus, who opens each act with a prologue. This edition is essentially a reprint of the second edition of 1532, with some corrections and with the text of the preliminary leaves a bit compressed. This copy with exceptional provenance, Iltyd Nicholl (stamp on flyleaf and bookplate) -- Digby Nicholl (stamp on flyleaf) -- William Marchbank (armorial bookplate) -- E.M. Cox (bookplate and initials pencilled on rear flyleaf, 1904) and Abel Berland, with his famous bookplate.

Translated into Englysh by John Lidgate, Monke of Burye

      London: by John Wayland, [n.d., ca. 1554-1555]. AN EXTREMELY RARE AND EARLY PRINTING of Boccaccio's tragedies into English, the third or fourth issuance only. Titlepage and leaf Gg4 (bound after title) with architectural woodcut borders(McKerrow 76a) and with woodcuts on leaf A4 illustrating events in the Garden of Eden, woodcut initials throughout. Folio [299 x 203 mm], in very fine and handsome nineteenth-century red hard-grain morocco by F.P. Hathaway of Boston, the boards elaborately framed in extensive gilt, the upper board with central gilt crest of John W. De Kay, the spine beautifully lettered and decorated with central tools in gilt in compartments between gilt ruled raised bands, elaborate gilt tooled board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. De Kay's armorial bookplates on front pastedown and verso of front free endpaper. (10], ctxiii, xxvii [i.e., xxxix] leaves. A very handsome and well preserved copy of this rare printing. The binding very handsome indeed, with only the most minimal wear to extremities, joints expertly and near-invisibly restored. The title-page and Gg3 laid down and reattached, the title with small ink notations at top, not affecting text or woodcut border. The inner margin of leaf Gg4 (which is bound in after the title-page in this copy, and *2 repaired, with some loss to woodcut border and a few words of text. Other minor paper repairs to several leaves, in a few cases affecting a few letters of text, evidence of old damp throughout last half of book which is fairly inoffensive. VERY RARE AND VERY EARLY PRINTING, WITH THE LEAF GG4 WHICH IS USUALLY LACKING. This is only the third or fourth printing in English of Boccaccio's De Casibus Virorurn ILlustrium, following Pynson's earlier printings of 1494 and 1527, Richard Tottell reissued the work in 1554 and it has not been clearly determined whether Tottell's edition or Wayland's was completed first. This especially handsome copy retains the final leaf Gg4, which is usually lacking according to STC. It is bound after the titlepage and comprises the rare title for A Memorial of Such Princes, as since the Tyme of King Richard the Seconds, Have Been Unfortunate in the Realme of England (SIC 1246), and was apparently intended for a work to be issued along with De Casibus which was suppressed for religious and political reasons during Mary's reign. John Lydgate's translation of Boccaccio's moralistic tales of the misfortunes of famous people was made from the 1476 French version by Laurence de Premierfait. The Latin original text was first printed circa 1474-75. De casibus is an encyclopedia of historical biographies dealing with the calamities of famous people starting with the biblical Adam, going to mythological and ancient people, then to people of Boccaccio's own time in the fourteenth century. The work was so successful it spawned what has been referred to as the 'De casibus tradition', it influenced many other famous authors, such as Geoffrey Chaucer. This copy with the provenance of John Wesley De Kay, self-made millionaire, American entrepreneur, playwright, author, and eccentric socialite. Born in Iowa to Dutch immigrants in 1872, De Kay apprenticed as a printer and eventually owned several newspapers and a sizable cattle ranch. In 1899, De Kay moved to Mexico and with the money he had made in his businesses purchased a concession for operating meatpacking plants. By 1909 De Kay's company, Popo, was one of the largest slaughtering and meat-distribution operations in North America, with a book value of over US $22 million ($500 billion in today's value). A published author and known socialite, his first produced play, "Judas", managed to get itself banned in New York, Boston and Philadelphia.

        Historia del descubrimiento y conquista de la India por los Portugueses, compuesta . en lenguaje Portugues y traduzida nuevamente en Romance Castellano

      1554 - The first Spanish edition of Castanheda´s cornerstone history of the explorations of the Portuguese in the East Indies. 1554. Antwerp. In 8vo (163 mm x 115 mm). 225 [220] + 12 pp. Near contemporary calf, stamped in blind, rubbing to boards, small defect on lower compartment on spine. Title with toning to margins, else a very fine and genuine example. This is Castañeda´s cornerstone work on the Portuguese discoveries and territorial expansion in Asia, especially the East Indies, and India. First edition in Spanish (after the Portuguese first, 1551). The work is extremely rare, and is the first translation into any other language; it was suggested by Quaritch that the original English edition was translated from this Spanish translation, and not the Portuguese. "Although relating principally to the Portuguese in India, China, and the East Indies (where Lopes de Castanheda lived for twenty years), this work contains interesting particulars of the Portuguese conquest of Brazil. The first book [all that was published] treats only the early part of Lopes de Castanheda's history, but it is the part most important in American history, as it includes Cabral's voyage [his discovery of Brazil in 1500] and others. Nothing more was ever printed in English or Spanish” (Hill 1035, for the English edition). The first English edition came out only in 1582, and, as in this first Spanish edition, also translated the first book alone. The Portuguese original, an absolute rarity, was published between 1551 and 1561, and consisted of eight books; the one here translated contains the information on Cabral´s arrival in Brazil. Pedro Alvares Cabral (c. 1467 – c. 1520) was a Portuguese navigator, military officer, and one of the leading figures of the age of exploration, often reputed as the discoverer of Brazil; Cabral conducted the first substantial exploration of the Northeast coast of South America, claiming it for Portugal: “it is the only part, which is important for American history, as it includes Cabral's voyage and the landing in Brazil. It is probable that this is the edition used by Nicholas Lichfield for his English translation, published in 1582; his version of the author's prologue agrees closely with the abridgement printed in this Spanish translation, and he too published no more than the first book” (Quaritch, No. 883, A catalogue of books on various subjects, 1967).

Une édition latine révisée parut au mois d'août 1554 sur laquelle fut établie cette deuxième édition française sous le titre Les Ephemerides perpetuelles de l'air : autreme[n]t l'astrologie des rustiques. Antoine Mizauld (Montluçon, 1510-Paris, 1578) était le médecin et astrologue de Marguerite de Navarre. Il occupa une place importante dans la littérature scientifique de la Renaissance, notamment grâce à ce traité de météorologie dans lequel il évoque la possibilité de prévoir le temps. Quirielle : « Il fit ses études classiques à Bourges, et ses études médicales à Paris où il reçut les leçons des meilleurs maaîtres du temps. Mizault trouva dans l'astrologie, dont il avait étudié les pratiques, en compagnie de son ami Oronce Finé, une spécialité supérieurement choisie à un époque où cette science chimérique était en grande faveur et comptait des fanatiques jusque sur les marches du trone. Aussi, sa vogue, comme médecin-mage, fut-elle extraordinaire. » Traité en quatre parties, Les ephemerides perpetuelles de l'air permettent de connaître, interpréter et prévoir les phénomènes atmosphériques comme a pluie, de la rosée, du frimas, de la neige, des vents et de leur connaissance chez les marins, du tonnerre, de l'éclair, de la foudre, du gel, des tempêtes. La dernière partie contient aussi une section sur la prédiction d'arrivée des comètes, tremblements de terre. « L'année 1524 marque en France le début de l'immense succès de l'astrométéorologie. (?) Dès lors, de la La grande pronostication des laboureurs à la Révélation du Saint prophète Edras jusqu'aux travaux d'Oronce Fine ou d'Antoine Mizauld, l'astrométéorologie développe ses thèmes dans les almanachs, les éphémerides et pronostications annuelles avec un succès croissant dont il est possible d'avoir une idée par la lecture des journaux et des livres de raison qui se font l'écho de l'imprégnation des esprits par les prévisions astrométéorologiques. (?) En effet, l'astrométéorologie participe à la diffusion d'un modèle d'explication des événements météorologiques qui permet non seulement leur compréhension partielle mais aussi leur prévison scientifique. (?) Comme l'héritage aristotélicien, l'astrologie apporte à la compréhension des phénomènes atmosphériques, non seulement des sources dignes de considération, mais aussi une véritable méthode de prévision ; le mot est d'Antoine Mizauld, qui en donne l'un des meilleurs exemples avec le Mirouer du temps (?) De cet héritage émergent un certain nombre de principes qui délimitent le champ d'investigations de l'astrométéorologie et organisent sa démarche : l'air d'une nature insaisissable traverse toutes choses et les altère. Cette transmuance, encore un mot de Mizauld, en fait un instrument sensible aux influences astrales comme aux messages divins. (?) Certains textes à l'exemple du Mirouer du temps encouragent l'observation individuelle comme un certain esprit critique : ainsi dans l'introduction de son ouvrage, Antoine Mizauld incite-t-il son lecteur à fonder ses déductions sur des relevés quotidiens des nuées et des vents et sur leur confrontation tandis qu'il le met en garde contre toute généralisation abusive en insistant sur le caractère très localisé de toute prévision météorologique viable. (?) Mais si l'auteur du Miroir du Temps dissocie clairement la possibilité de prévoir le temps à venir et celle d'interpréter les événements climatiques en fonction de l'histoire humaine, il ne craint pas pourtant d'affirmer sa vive croyance en les [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Dyaloges in Englishe, Betwene a Doctour of Divinitie, And.

      1554 - Early Printing of a Landmark Work in Legal Ethics and Equity Saint German (Germain), Christopher [1460?-1540].

[London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1554 (i.e. 1565?)]. 48, 50-177, [4] ff. Final four leaves, which comprise the index, supplied in facsimile. Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Later calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and gilt title to spine. Some rubbing to extremities with minor wear to spine ends and corners, a few minor nicks to boards. Title printed within woodcut architectural border. Moderate toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, title page, following leaf and final leaf partially detached. Early annotations to title page and a few leaves, later owner signature to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. An attractive copy. * Written originally in Latin in 1523, Dialogus de Fundamentis Legum Angliae et de Conscientia, better known by its colloquial English title, Doctor and Student, contains two dialogues between a doctor of divinity and a student of English law. It popularized canonist learning on the nature and object of law, the religious and moral standards of law, the foundations of the common law and issues regarding the jurisdiction of Parliament. It was also a key work in the development of equity law. Doctor and Student went through numerous editions. An authority well into the eighteenth century, it influenced several writers, including Blackstone. A few sources believe the 1554 Tottell imprint was actually printed in 1565. Whatever the date, it is a scarce imprint.

Nizzoli?'s Latin dictionary of 1544, published in response to Estienne?'s edition. A rare early edition of this great monument of Renaissance humanist scholarship first published in 1535. Mario Nizzoli, or Marius Nizolius as he was known in Latin, was a professor at the University of Parma and an expert Latin lexicographer. In 1520, he published his chief work, the Thesaurus Ciceronianus, which had first appeared as Observationes in Ciceronem in 1535, documenting approximately 20,000 words. Nizzoli dared to publish an augmented version of Robert Estienne?'s Linguae latinae thesaurus in Venice in 1550-51 and inspection of this edition in press enraged Robert, who recognized some of the added words as ones which he carefully identified as to be omitted from his dictionary and counterfeit or post-classical. The work also includes a biographical note to Italian cardinal Giovanni Francesco Gambara (1533-1587).

      Lugduni [Lyon]: Apud Ioannem Frellonium [Jean Frellon] 1554. Titelei, 2 Blatt Vorrede, 53 Blatt Index, 560 Seiten, 15 Blatt. Ledereinband des 17. oder 18. Jahrhunderts, 12°, 12,5 x 8 cm. (stärker beschabt, wurmspurig, Kapitale mit Fehlstellen, Titelei nur fragmentarisch vorhanden und aufgezogen, innen durchgängig mit zahlreichen Anstreichungen und Marginalien in Tinte von alter Hand, durch den etwas knappen Beschnitt beim Nachbinden teils Buchstaben abgeschnitten, durchgehend wurmspurig, sonst nur wenig gebräunt, im Ganzen passabel erhalten).-Johann(es) Carion, Historiker und Astrologe (geboren 1499 in Bietigheim-Bissingen als Johannes Negelin bzw. Nägelin oder Nägele, gestorben 1537 in Berlin) war eine der bekanntesten und schillerndsten Personen seiner Zeit. 1514 begann er sein Studium an der Tübinger Universität, wo er den zwei Jahre älteren Philipp Melanchthon kennenlernte, mit dem er lebenslang verbunden blieb. 1518 gab er sein erstes astrologisches Werk heraus, eine Jahreschronik auf das Jahr 1519. Im gleichen Jahr, oder kurz darauf kam Negelin auf Geheiß des Kurfürsten Joachim I. Nestor als Hofmathematiker nach Berlin und nahm bald nach seiner Bestellung den Humanistennamen \"Carion\" an (Caryophyllus heißt Gewürznelke). Carion wurde ein wichtiger Mann am Hofe des streng katholischen Kurfürsten. Gemeinsam führten Sie astronomische Beobachtungen durch, an denen der Kurfürst sehr interessiert war und die von Carion oft astrologisch gedeutet wurden. Seine bekannteste Vorhersage war eine Sintflut für Februar 1524, die große Teile der Erde zerstören sollte. Es kam zu Massenhysterien und Tumulten. Als die Sintflut ausblieb, modifizierte Carion die Voraussage auf den 15. Juli 1525, diesmal allerdings nur privatim an den Kurfürsten. Daß auch diese Vorhersage nicht eintraf, hat seinem Einfluß am Hofe nicht geschadet. Carion zählt mit seinen astronomisch-astrologischen Werken, die zahlreiche Auflagen erlebten, zu den wichtigsten und erfolgreichsten Autoren seiner Zeit. 1532 reiste Carion im Auftrag des Kurprinzen, des späteren Joachim II. Hector, nach Wittenberg, um dort Luther und Melanchthon in der Frage des Sakramentsempfanges zu konsultieren. Ein Nebeneffekt des wiederbelebten Kontaktes zu Melanchthon war, daß dieser sich zur Durchsicht und Korrektur von Carions Chronik bereiterklärte. Aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach hat Melanchthon das Werk stark überarbeitet. Die 1532 in Wittenberg erstmals erschienene Chronik ist Carions umfangreichstes und wirkungsgeschichtlich wichtigstes Werk und wurde zum \"ersten deutschen Geschichtsbuch\" ! Die \"Chronica Carionis\" wurde zum Markenzeichen und als übersichtliches Geschichtswerk zum Standard. Sie wurde schon zu Lebzeiten Carions oft nachgedruckt und bereits 1537 von Hermann Bonnus ins Lateinische übersetzt. Die Marginalien in unserem Exemplar sind in feiner, gelehrter Handschrift, die Namen von Herrschern wurden ergänzt und aktualisiert, einzelne Abschnitte gestrichen, wie um das Werk für eine Neuausgabe vorzubereiten. - Die uns vorliegende lateinische Ausgabe scheint sehr selten zu sein, wir konnten bei der online-Recherche weltweit nur ein Exemplar im italienischen SBN-Katalog nachweisen, keines in der französischen Nationalbibliothek ! Die im gleichen Jahr 1554 in Lyon bei Vincentius gedruckte Ausgabe ist dagegen in vier deutschen Bibliotheken nachweisbar. Bei den Angaben zu Carion folgen wir dem Artikel von Karl-Reinhart Trauner für die online-Version von Bautz Kirchenlexikon.

        LA CHRONICA DEL PERU, NUEVAMENTE ESCRITA, POR PEDRO DE CIEÇA DE LEON, VEZINO DE SEVILLA

      Antwerp, 1554. 12mo. Contemporary limp vellum, lacking ties. Vellum attached to text block with ties through foredges of pastedowns only. Slight age toning, occasional dampstaining, minor soiling on leaf 55. A very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. One of two 1554 Antwerp editions of Cieza de León's highly regarded history of Peru, and the earliest obtainable edition, following the first edition printed in Seville the previous year. The author, the foremost soldier-chronicler of the conquest, served under Pedro de La Gasca in his campaign against Gonzalo Pizarro during the civil war in Peru in the years following the conquest. "After the end of the civil war, he travelled extensively throughout Peru in order to collect information on both the conquest and the Inca world, with the clear intent of writing the first major history of Peru. When he returned to Spain in 1550, he managed to publish only the first part of his work...a thorough description of the land and people of Peru. It includes both the cities founded by the Spaniards, such as Lima and Quito, and the first documented descriptions of Inca cities and their customs. His wealth of information is the result of personal observation, the scrutiny of reports and official papers, and oral reports from Quechua Indians" - Delgado-Gomez. Considered the earliest history of the entire viceroyalty of Peru, LA CHRONICA... is illustrated throughout with forty-one half-page woodcuts, several of which appear multiple times. In addition to numerous images of building activities, possibly derived from earlier works on European architecture and monuments, the illustrations include images of the devil, indigenous animals, the former Inca capital of Cuzco, Lake Titicaca, and Potosí. "A European vision of America sometimes enhanced by fantastic elements. In one of them, the devil, believed to be hard at work in the New World, is shown as he keeps the inhabitants from leading a virtuous Christian life, and in another, Lake Titicaca, located on the desolate Andean altiplano, looks curiously like a canal in the city of Venice. The illustration of the Cerro de Potosí, the fabled "silver mountain" of the Indies is an exception. Because it was based on an original drawing done by the chronicler himself, it more accurately depicts the real place" - Johnson.

        Libri de Piscibus Marinis

      apud Matthiam Bonhomme, London 1554 - FIRST EDITION OF THIS SEMINAL WORK FIRST EDITION. Folio. [xvi] 583 [xxv] Roman and Italic letter, historiated woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, t.p. with printer's device of Perseus with the head of Medusa within architectural border, woodcut portrait of the author on verso of a8, 248 woodcut illustrations of fish and other sea creatures after the designs of Georges Reverdi. Light age yellowing, waterstaining to first and last few gatherings, single wormhole throughout at inner margin of book occasionally just touching text, wormtrail to upper margin of a few gatherings, very neatly restored. Near contemporary ms ex libris autography of "Jo[hann]is Dominici De San[?]y eq[itis] [aur]ati Cas Sti Andrea", C19 Nordkirchen bookplate of the Dukes of Arenberg on inside cover, remains of ms vellum stubbs. A clean and well margined copy in contemporary calf over thick wooden boards, richly blind-rolled in ornate, deeply cut panels with corner pieces, a central diamond and blind stamp depiction of the three crosses at Golgotha, rolls in a floral motif with unnamed portrait medallions, spine triple-ruled in five compartments with raised bands, each stamped with ornaments, slight tearing at upper and lower joints, defective at head and tail, lacking clasps. FIRST EDITION of Rondelet's seminal work on all aquatic animals the most important published up to that time. The first four books are a general discussion about fish with comparative anatomy and specific treatment of anatomical anomalies such as gills, tentacles, stingers, etc. Through an experiment he argues that fish must take in some type of air from the water into their gills: he proves this by keeping a bowl sealed tight which causes the fish inside to suffocate. The rest of the book comprises of around 300 descriptions, the majority illustrated, of marine life, listing the names of each in local languages, its living and feeding habits, anatomical features, and for those fish he could observe and dissect personally, even more information on nutrition, reproduction, and natural habitats. An encyclopedia of sealife would be remiss if it were to by pass a good meal, but luckily Rondelet includes cooking tips and recipes for fish-based meals throughout the entries. For instance, Bream, a small freshwater fish, is good "'boiled in water and wine as is done in France', but it is equally good in a variety of other ways. It can be grilled after placing fennel and rosemary in its belly; it can be roasted or served cold; or can even be baked in a crust, [etc.].' [.] Not only has Rondelet given us a series of potential recipes for this fish but he has also revealed some regional culinary preferences." (Fitzpatrick cit. infr.) Guillaume Rondelet (1507-1566) studied medicine at Montpellier, but "although he was active in several branches of biology, Rondelet's reputation effectively depends on his massive compendium on aquatic life, which covered far more species than any earlier work in that field. Despite its theoretical limitation, it laid the foundations for later ichthyological research and was the standard reference work for over a century.[.]In his own day Rondelet was almost as well known as an anatomist as a zoologist. A popular lecturer, Rondelet attracted scholars from all over Europe: Coiter and Bauhin; L'Écluse; L'Obel, who inherited his botanical manuscripts; and Daleschamps. Gesner and Aldrovandi also studied briefly under him." (DSB cit. infr.) Adams R-746. Baudrier X 239. DSB XI 527-528. Garrison-Morton 282. Norman 1848. Osler 3821. Nissen I 3474.

Hector, nach Wittenberg, um dort Luther und Melanchthon in der Frage des Sakramentsempfanges zu konsultieren. Ein Nebeneffekt des wiederbelebten Kontaktes zu Melanchthon war, daß dieser sich zur Durchsicht und Korrektur von Carions Chronik bereiterklärte. Aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach hat Melanchthon das Werk stark überarbeitet. Die 1532 in Wittenberg erstmals erschienene Chronik ist Carions umfangreichstes und wirkungsgeschichtlich wichtigstes Werk und wurde zum "ersten deutschen Geschichtsbuch" ! Die "Chronica Carionis" wurde zum Markenzeichen und als übersichtliches Geschichtswerk zum Standard. Sie wurde schon zu Lebzeiten Carions oft nachgedruckt und bereits 1537 von Hermann Bonnus ins Lateinische übersetzt. Die Marginalien in unserem Exemplar sind in feiner, gelehrter Handschrift, die Namen von Herrschern wurden ergänzt und aktualisiert, einzelne Abschnitte gestrichen, wie um das Werk für eine Neuausgabe vorzubereiten. - Die uns vorliegende lateinische Ausgabe scheint sehr selten zu sein, wir konnten bei der online-Recherche weltweit nur ein Exemplar im italienischen SBN-Katalog nachweisen, keines in der französischen Nationalbibliothek ! Die im gleichen Jahr 1554 in Lyon bei Vincentius gedruckte Ausgabe ist dagegen in vier deutschen Bibliotheken nachweisbar. Bei den Angaben zu Carion folgen wir dem Artikel von Karl-Reinhart Trauner für die online-Version von Bautz Kirchenlexikon. 200 Gramm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
