Fausto, Sebastiano.
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.

Sabellico Marco Antonio
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 gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ottimo esemplare entro custodia moderna. Prima edizione del Froben delle opere storiche di Appiano di Alessandria nella traduzione latina del celebre umanista cèco Sigmund Gelen (Sigismundus Gelenius, Praga, 1494-Basilea, 1554). Gelenius at one time studied Greek under Marcus Musurus and visited Sicily, Sardinia, Corsica, and France before returning to Prague, where he lectured privately on Greek authors and entered into correspondence with Melanchthon. 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. [also] Erasmus held Gelenius in high regard as is attested to by himself and others (Contemporaries of Erasmus, II, pp. 8 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lopez de Castañeda [Lopes de Castanheda], Fernando
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Vinegia (Venedig) (al segno del diamante) (per Comin da Trino di Monferrato), 1554. 8°, 240 Bll., 46 Holzschnitte u. 46 Bildinitialen. Brauner Ledereinbd. d. 20. Jh. (Fachmännisch restauriertes Exemplar. Titelblatt mit Holzschnittportr. fehlt. Viele Ss. an d. Rändern braunfl., einig m. kl. Fehlstellen ohne Textverlust, 1 kl. Brandloch, einige Eintragungen u. Unterstr. in Tinte v. alter Hand). Über den Autor M. Panfilo Renaldini (poeta romanzesco del Cinquecento) ist nicht viel bekannt. Eine Monographie aus dem Jahre 1939 konnte ermittelt werden. Der Autor hängt sich mit seiner Dichtung an das zur selben Zeit außerordentliche und sehr populäre epische Werk Ariosts, Orlando Furioso (Der rasende Roland), an. Dieses epochemachende Buch erschien 1532 in seiner endgültigen Fassung in 46 Gesängen. Auch Rinaldos Orlando umfasst 46 Gesänge. Er widmet es seinem Fürsten, Francesco Medici. Die 46 sehr reizvollen Renaissanceholzschnitte ähneln stilistisch dem Petrarcameister und haben ein Format von jeweils ca. 5 x 11 cm. Die Initialen sind auch bei Veröffentlichungen von anderen Druckern, die in der Comin de Trino di Monferrato mitarbeiteten, nachweisbar. Drucke dieses Drucker-Komitees erschienen zwischen 1539 und 1574. Buch

Lugduni [Lyon]: Apud Ioannem Frellonium [Jean Frellon], 1554.. leather_bound. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

CATULLUS, Gaius Valerius
Paulus Manutius Aldus, 1554. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. ff. [iv] 134 [ii]. Italic letter, occasional Roman and Greek. Anchor device on title and verso of final leaf. A little light marginal foxing, a very good, clean copy in contemporary Italian limp vellum, title in brown on spine, gauffered edges (a little scuffed, lacking ties). Contemporary autograph of Vincenti Mariae Frosini of Pistoia in blank margins at bottom of title above early monogram 'TF' in blank portion of lower margin, contemporary price on fly. First edition of Marc-Antoine Muret's commentary on Catullus. Muret (1526-1585) was a noted French humanist and all-round Renaissance man, being a jurist, theologist, philisopher and poet; counting among his pupils the young Montaigne; his reputation as a lecturer was so great that even Henri II and Catherine de Medicis came to hear him. Muret spent much of his life wandering, in France initially - from Bordeaux to Paris to Toulouse - and then in Italy, from Venice to Padua and Rome. This was partly due to dogged allegations of homosexuality which followed him and led to brief imprisonment in Châtelet at Paris and his eventual condemnation to death in Tolouse in the early 1550s, prompting his flight to Italy. In Venice, he was well received and embraced by the learned community. One of his first contacts there was Paulus Manutius, and this is his first work produced in Italy, a scholarly and detailed commentary on the poems of Catullus, indulging in a depth of detail and level of criticism that shows it is aimed for the scholarly reader. Catullus was the "greatest lyric po … [Click Below for Full Description]

EGNATIUS, Giovanni Battista
Bernardo Torresano sub Aldina Bibliotheca, Paris, 1554. 16mo, ff. [16], 334, [2], missing final blank. Roman letter; Aldine device on title, few historiated initials; occasional very light foxing to margins, slight yellowing. A very good copy in contemporary vellum; bookplate of Allan Heywood Bright on front pastedown. Second edition of this curious collection of exemplary episodes, issued in Paris some months after the princeps of Venice the same year. Giovanni Battista Cipelli (1478-1553), better known by his humanist nickname Egnatius, was a prominent scholar in Renaissance Venice and a trusted collaborator of Aldus Manutius. Very knowledgeable in Latin and Greek, he taught in the School of St Marcus and was appointed official orator of the Venetian Republic. On account of his philological, editorial and teaching skills, he was held in high esteem by Pietro Bembo, Marco Musuro, Marco Antonio Sabellico and even Wilibald Pirckheimer and Erasmus. His most successful work was De Caesaribus, a learned overview of the lives of the Roman, Byzantine, Frankish and German emperors, up to Maximilian I of Augsburg. An extract of the second book circulated independently as an essay on the origins of the Turks. Following the model of Valerius Maximus, Egnatius assembled a vast number of edifying stories from the lives of Venetians and other illustrious personalities of the past and present. It is divided into nine books and each of the numerous chapters is devoted to a topic (either virtue or vice). Book 8 includes a note on the invention of printing (f. 300rv) and a praise of Columbu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alcune fonti gli attribuiscono anche il saggio rabbinico "Typus Messiae et Christi Domini ex veterum prophetarum praesensionibus contra Judaeorum" (1554) per il nome dell'autore, Petro Costo, possibile pseudonimo di Coustau. Dell'Adversariorum ex Pandectas" vide la luce solo il primo tomo. > Adams, I, C, 2731. Bibliotheca Sunderlandiana, 3495. Codice libreria 127470.

Apud Franciscum Simonem Moschenios Fratres, Mediolani 1554 - In 16,Âcarte (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.

1554 - The earliest and most significant history of Mexico, California, and the Southwest; with the rare map by Bellere. 1554. Antwerp. Iuan Steelsio. In 8vo (140 mm x 85 mm). 349 + 11 ff. + folding map. Nineteenth century brown calf, boards and spine tooled in blind, spine lettered in gilt, false raised bands, rubbed. A very fresh copy internally, only faint damp on lower margin, else fine. First edition of this title, “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 –and the first to include Bellere´s map, almost never present; “ almost all historians and bibliographers assert that when this work appeared, it was suppressed” (Wagner, Vol. 1, p. 81). This particular copy has the Bellere map, which extends from the West Indies, showing Florida and southern United States, to the Strait of Magellan. The work is divided in two parts, each independent of the other: the first deals with the location of the Indies, Colombus´ discoveries, the colonization of Hispaniola, Peru, amongst other subjects; the second part, which is what is contained in this edition –published separately-, is almost solely dedicated 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 what little information was available on California and the Southwest at such … [Click Below for Full Description]
