SADOLETO, Paolo, editor.
Rome: Valerio Dorico, 1554. Small octavo, italic letter, guide-letters for initials; olive morocco gilt, gilt edges, silk tie. Fine early anthology of letters by famous men, including Giovio, Bernardo Tasso, Annibal Caro and others. The delightful binding is attributed in an old owner's note to Padeloup. There are a few early owner's notes in pen, some correcting typographical errors including a footnote where "dodeci" is changed to "tredici" in the title of the work, indicating that it grew in scope while in the press.The nephew of Jacopo Sadoleto, the celebrated humanist scholar and bishop of Carpentras, in 1535 Paolo was named his coadjutor to the bishopric with right of succession, which he succeeded to in 1547.From the Ingleton collection with his bookplate and shelfmark. A very attractive copy.

Dodoens, Rembert
A complete copy. Engraved title page and upwards of 1,300 woodcut illustrations in the text. Contents in thoroughly vg. condition. Handsomely bound in contemporary, leather covered wooden boards with parts of original metal hasps still in place. Panel style binding decorated with images depicting people, trees, plants etc. Binding rubbed and worn commensurate with age; still in very good condition for its age. Overall in very good condition. Scarce. An important early Herbal. "Dodoens?' first botanical work of importance was the Cruydeboeck, published at Antwerp in 1554 by Jan vander Loe. This provided the basis for all of his further writings since his later works incorporated additions and changes that he made to the original during the rest of his lifetime. His work finally bore the title Stirpium historiae in pemptades sex" (Anderson). Dodoens?' "last and most comprehensive botanical work" (Hunt).

Ottima copia marginosa.PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo importante trattato teorico sul poema cavalleresco, apparso nel 1554 poco dopo che G.B. Giraldi Cinzio, di cui il Pigna era stato allievo, pubblicasse il suo Discorso intorno al comporre dei romanzi, venendo accusato dall'allievo di plagio. I due continuarono a scambiarsi lettere di accuse e smentite per alcuni anni a seguire, ma questa polemica, che alimentò la celebre controversia sull'Ariosto, risulta oggi di scarso interesse, in quanto la teoria del romanzo espressa dal Pigna, benché anch'essa tragga spunto da Aristotele, si rivela ad una attenta analisi parzialmente diversa da quella del Giraldi. Inoltre dalla prima stesura dell'opera, che nel 1547 l'autore diciassettenne probabilmente sottopose al giudizio del Giraldi, alla versione definitiva, l'opera crebbe e subì cambiamenti radicali. «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 ou … [Click Below for Full Description]

GIRALDI, Giovambattista

Il Giraldi professore di retorica allo Studio di Ferrara, più che farsi banditore di un verbo romantico e rivoluzionario, giustificava nell?ambito della dottrina classicistica la nuova poesia, che tanto favore aveva tra il pubblico e particolarmente nell?ambiente ferrarese in cui egli viveva e, come già il Bembo aveva fatto del Petrarca per la poesia lirica, proclamava poeta - modello di pari autorità dei classici greci e latini l?Ariosto, intorno al quale e al suo modo di comporre ci fornisce interessanti notizie.

Nonostante nell?'opera si intreccino di continuo resoconti di esperienze vere a superstizioni, pratiche alchemiche e magiche, alcune osservazioni del Cardano risultano particolarmente interessanti. Oltre all?'intuizione dell?'impossibilità del moto perpetuo, bisogna segnalare i contributi all?'idrodinamica..?". Così Gliozzi ?"Storia della fisica?" (2005), p. 97. Il "De Subtilitate" ebbe uno straordinario successo.. la traduzione francese, pubblicata nel 1556, sarà adottata nelle scuole di Francia come testo per lo studio della statica e dell?'idrodinamica fino a tutto il XVII secolo: nel 1551 l?'opera sarà ristampata a Parigi e a Lione e l?'anno successivo usciranno ancora tre ristampe.

POLYBIUS
Lugduni: Seb. Gryphium, 1554. n. Hardcover. 178 x 108 mm (7 x 4 1/4"). 790 pp., [21] leaves (the last one blank). Translated by Nicolaus Perrottus and Wolfgang Musculus. Tasteful contemporary (English?) calf, covers with single gilt fillet border and intricate arabesque centerpiece, raised bands, spine panels with central azured gilt fleur-de-lys or floral sprig, apparently original morocco label (perhaps--but perhaps not--with very expert repairs at spine ends). Publisher's woodcut griffin device on title and last page. Front pastedown with (18th century?) engraved armorial bookplate of Sir William Baird and modern bookplate of Kenneth Rapoport, title page with early ownership signature of Franciscus T_______ (now washed away and consequently very faint); occasional contemporary underlinings and manicules. Baudrier VIII, 271. Joints rubbed (and with thin cracks alongside top spine panel on upper and lower joint and along bottom two spine panels on upper joint), lower cover with minor discoloration (perhaps from damp), other trivial defects, but the binding entirely solid, still quite lustrous, and with nothing approaching a major condition problem. Without front free endpaper, n3 with branching tear (a paper flaw?) from margin into text necessitating (old) repair, but without loss, isolated faint browning, other small imperfections, but a really excellent copy internally, consistently very fresh and clean. This is a very well-preserved copy, in an attractive mid-16th century binding, of a history of republican Rome that had a significant effect almost 2,000 years later … [Click Below for Full Description]

BIBLE IN FRENCH AND LATIN - NEW TESTAMENT
Lyon: Guillaume Rouille, 1554. n. Hardcover. 127 x 83 mm (5 x 3 1/4"). 540, [4] leaves. PLEASING CONTEMPORARY CALF DECORATED IN AN ENTRELAC DESIGN, the boards ornamented in the Lyonnaise style with intricate interlacing strapwork and foliage in dark brown and gray outlined in gilt on a background of tiny gilt dots, flat spine with similar decoration (these 16th century designs expertly laid down onto modern calf), all edges gilt. Elaborate historiated woodcut frame enclosing each of the two title pages, some decorative and historiated woodcut initials and headpieces in the text. With parallel columns of Latin (in roman typeface) and French (in italic). Front pastedown with embossed armorial bookplate of Daniel Sickles. Baudrier IX, 216; Fairfax Murray 532. The covers with trivial marks and worm traces, the text printed on inexpensive (and consequently yellowed) paper, first few leaves and last leaf a little thumbed, isolated minor soiling, but an excellent example, the carefully restored binding entirely solid and quite bright, and the text smooth and fresh. From a distinguished collection, this, like the previous item, is a charming specimen of 16th century Lyonnaise book production, bound in an elegant style strongly identified with that city. It is a surprisingly early Latin-French printing of the Scriptures, predating both Brunet and Darlowe & Moule: the earliest such edition in Brunet was produced by our publisher in 1557, and the first Latin-French Bible listed by Darlowe & Moule was printed in 1566.

(mm. 283x194), p. pelle settecentesca, dorso a cordoni con decoraz. e tit. oro su doppio tassello, tagli rossi,12 cc.nn., 561 pp.num., (manca l?ultima carta bianca), con un ritratto di Gerolamo Cardano (1501 - 1576) in ovale al verso del frontespizio, numerose figure e diagrammi nel testo; ornato da ventun pregevoli grandi iniziali figur. a vignetta, il tutto silografato. ?Pubblicato per la prima volta a Norimberga nel 1550, il "De Subtilitate" è una vera enciclopedia scientifica in cui è racchiuso tutto il sapere del primo Cinquecento, dalla botanica alla geologia, dalla cosmologia alla costruzione di macchine che talvolta ricordano quelle di Leonardo, dalla fisica alla zoologia. Nonostante nell?opera si intreccino di continuo resoconti di esperienze vere a superstizioni, pratiche alchemiche e magiche, alcune osservazioni del Cardano risultano particolarmente interessanti. Oltre all?intuizione dell?impossibilità del moto perpetuo, bisogna segnalare i contributi all?idrodinamica..?. Così Gliozzi ?Storia della fisica? (2005), p. 97. Il "De Subtilitate" ebbe uno straordinario successo.. la traduzione francese, pubblicata nel 1556, sarà adottata nelle scuole di Francia come testo per lo studio della statica e dell?idrodinamica fino a tutto il XVII secolo: nel 1551 l?opera sarà ristampata a Parigi e a Lione e l?anno successivo usciranno ancora tre ristampe. Questa di Basilea è la seconda ediz. che si distingue dalla precedente per gli ampliamenti di alcuni libri e le correzioni. Cfr. Adams,I, p. 241 - Wellcome,1291 - Durling, p. 104 cita un? … [Click Below for Full Description]
