Octavo (5-1/2" x 3-1/2"). Recent calf, old calf covers with small central arabesques laid down, endpapers renewed. Light toning to text, gutter of last page adhered slightly to facing endpaper just touching text, two small wormholes to upper margins with no loss to text, early annotations to head of title page and a few leaves. Ex-Birmingham Law Society. Bookplates to front pastedown and verso of title page, small inkstamp to title page and a few leaves. An attractive copy. * First edition. As Winfield notes, the anonymous Latin text long attributed to Glanville (or Glanvill) is the "first classical textbook of English law." Completed around 1189, it describes the procedure of the King's Bench. There is much information pertaining to litigation and includes the texts of approximately eighty writs. Glanville was a major contribution to the development of the common law tradition. It continued to be a primary reference for several generations. Coke, for example, praised it wholeheartedly and used it liberally in his Reports. Though overshadowed by Bracton's larger treatise, Glanville is still cited today. It also remains useful for its unparalleled insights into the nature of land law and procedure in medieval England. English Short-Title Catalogue (ESTC) S102455.

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

      Antwerp: Martin Nucio, 1554.. [8],204 leaves, with forty-one woodcuts in the text. Woodcut vignette on titlepage. 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. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 554/15. SABIN 13045. MEDINA (BHA) 161. FIELD 314 (1553 ed.). JOHNSON, THE BOOK IN THE AMERICAS 32 (1553 ed). DELGADO-GOMEZ, SPANISH HISTORICAL WRITING ABOUT THE NEW WORLD 26 (1553 ed).

        In artem parvam galeni explanatione a' valentino lublino popono editae... venetiis, apud balthassarem constantinum, 1554.

      Cm. 15,5, cc. (16) 400 + 1 cb. Alcuni capolettera istoriati. Bella e solida legatura strettamente coeva in mergamena rigida, dorso con nervi a vista e titoli ben manoscritti. Esemplare, fresco, marginoso ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Ampia spiegazione del pensiero galenico stilata da Giovanni Battista da Monte (Montano), medico e letterato veronese. Quest'ultimo fu sostenitore dell'empirismo ippocratico e rivoluzionò l'insegnamento della medicina facendo partire i suoi allievi non dai testi bensì dal malato stesso. Cfr. Pazzini: ""...Da Monte esercitò medicina a Brescia, viaggiò per l'Italia fermandosi a Napoli, Roma, Venezia e Ferrara dove insegnò nel 1539. Passò quindi a Padova... Fu tanto lodato dai suoi contemporanei da essere detto dono concesso dal Cielo e lume del suo secolo. Egli fu tra i primi ad istituire un insegnamento clinico al letto del malato. "".

Woodcut portrait of Rondelet in both volumes, woodcut illustration to second t-p, in all about 430 woodcut illustrations of all aquatic animals, i.e. fish, marine mammals, arthropods, mollusks, riverine amphibians, beavers etc.. Scarce first edition. This work is rarely seen complete, often index or illustration-leaves are missing. In Latin w. Greek text. The rare, influential first edition of this work of seminal character, likewise the first French work ever published on fish. A French edition was published, also in Lyon, in 1558. As professor of medicine and eager student of anatomy, G. Rondelet (1507 - 1566) was also the personal physician of Francois Cardand Tournon, whom he accompagnied on many trips to towns along the coast. Here he was able to make observations of interest to natural history, for example by studying whaling."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." (D.S.B., XI:527).Rondelet was a very popular teacher (both of anatomy and zoology), who had a great deal of influence on his students, among whom we find the two great zoologists Aldrovandi and Gesner.This his work on aquatic life is without doubt his main work, the work for which he claimed so great fame and because of which he is now referred to as "the grandfather of modern ichthyology" (Wood, p. 541).This work was groundbreaking in many ways, as it first of all went beyond Aristotle, and actually proved him wrong. Rondelet applies the device of observing the animals themselves, and his great anatomical knowledge enables him to present the world with entirely new material and discoveries; for example this is the first published work containing zoological accounts of the sperm whale and the manatee. Never before had the world seen a structered compilation of zoology like this, -profusely illustrated, giving account of every known species!"He is best known by his work on sea fishes - "De Piscibus marinis" - which included whales, eeals, cephalopods, crustacae, and vermes. He was especially noted for his dissection of these animals, which led him to contradict many of the assumptions of Aristotle." (Wood, p. 12).In this work many species are depicted for the first time, and with it the foundation of modern zoology is established. Nissen ZBI 3474, Wood, p. 541
