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. A major book production center in the 16th century, Lyon hosted one … [Click Below for Full Description]

CARDANO Gerolamo
per Ludovicum Lucium 1554 In - 4 p. (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.

Cortes tintados con inscripción en el corte inferior "Seneca De Benefici Varchi". Algún punto muy ocasional de suciedad. Excelente ejemplar impreso sobre papel fuerte. Palau 308091. STC 621. Schweiger II, 931. Ebert 20900. Gamba 918: Raro, è questa edizione molto elegante." Exlibris de Giorgio Fumach. Primera edición italiana. El traductor dedica la obra a Leonora de Toledo, Duquesa de Firenze.El pensamiento económico de Séneca puede recogerse a lo largo de su obra, y más especialmente en su tratado De los beneficios y en sus Cartas a Lucilio. Séneca mira con aversión al mundo que le rodea y que se mueve solo por ganar dinero. En el ensayo sobre los beneficios parece inclinarse hacia un sistema de distribución de bienes basado en el intercambio de regalos y favores. Analiza con gran sutileza la satisfacción o utilidad que proporciona el beneficio al bienhechor, y la gratitud que obliga al beneficiario a devolver el favor, incluso con creces. Con estos y análogos razonamientos llega Séneca a elaborar una teoría del don, y a glosar, por decirlo así, un refrán muchas veces oído, sin duda, en su tierra natal, aunque raramente comenta do en los manuales de teoría económica: amor con amor se paga.

HERMES TRISMEGISTOS (HERMES TRISMEGISTUS/ MERCURIUS TRISMEGISTUS). - [THE FIRST INSIGHT INTO THE VISIONARY SOURCE OF HERMETISM]
Paris, G. Morel for A. Turnebus, 1554. 4to. Contemporary full vellum with contemporary handwritten title to spine. Inner hinge opening at cords. Some leaves with a bit of light browning. A stamp as well as handwritten owner's inscription to title-page, dated 1606. Pencil-annotations to pasted-down front free end-paper and owner's signature dated 1937 to front free end-paper. A very nice copy, completely unrestored.Woodcut printer's device, (8), 103; (1), 126 pp. + final blank. ¶ The rare editio princeps of the Hermetic corpus, being the seminal first and chief work of the "Corpus Hermeticum", the "Poemander", which became one of the most important texts of the Renaissance (in which Hermes was considered a contemporary of Moses and the founder of theology), as well as the editio princeps of the "Definitiones" of Asklepios. <br><br>The two works in the present publication have for centuries been synonymous with the "Corpus Hermeticum". The "Poemander" is assumed to be the first text of the corpus to have been written. It has always been considered the central work of the corpus and was thus unsurprisingly the first to be published in the original Greek. <br><br>Appearing in the original Greek in 1554, it had an enormous influence upon Renaissance thought, both philosophical and scientific. It competed in influence with Neoplatonism and as the latter, it also came to be considered a form of Platonism, being quickly adopted into the corpus of classical texts formative for modern thought. In fact, for a long period, the "Poemander" outshone even the texts of Plato and were cons … [Click Below for Full Description]

With a total of 51 engravings in the text (7 full-page) and 12 double-page maps and plans (2 full-page). 20th-c. full brown morocco, double-gilt fillet on the covers, spine ribbed and decorated with gilt fleurons, mottled edges. Stored in custom-made calf-edged slipcases.. Perfectly complete copy of this superb collection of travels, composed of the first edition of the 3rd part and the second edition of the 1st and 2nd part. The second edition, widely enlarged, of the 1st part, is the first and only one to present the 3 double-page maps representing Africa and India that had not been printed in the first edition of 1550, and which won't be reprinted in the 3rd edition of 1563 since the wood plates of these 3 maps had been destroyed in the fire that ravaged Giunti's workshop in 1557. - "This work, which served as a model to Hakluyt, was the first systematical collection of voyages that had so far appeared [...] It [...] is carefully and intelligently done" (Cox). "All authors are unanimous of their praise of Ramusio's choice of published narratives. Locke, the English philosopher, states that it is 'the most perfect work of that nature in any language'. Harrisse writes, 'The publication of Ramusio's "Raccolta" may be said to open an era in the literary history of Voyage and Navigation.

POLIBIO DI MEGALOPOLI (205 ca. - 125/120 a. C. ) nella traduzione in latino di PEROTTO Niccolò (Fano 1429 - Sassoferratoi 1480)
LUGDUNI, APUD SEB(ASTIANUM) GRYPHIUM, 1554 In-16°Attraente legatura cinquecentesca di manifattura lionese in piena pergamena, titolo manoscritto al dorso; tagli elegantemente goffrati e dorati. 983 pagine numerate cui seguono 43 pagine non numerate per gli indici. Frontespizio con marca dell'editore, rifilato alla parte inferiore per cassare firma di appartenenza, con reintegro; piatto anteriore della legatura leggermente deformato. Testo in lingua latina e carattere corsivo. Un capolettera iniziale decorato a racemi e abitato, impresso a silografia. Il volume è una reimpressione dei primi cinque libri delle Storie del greco Polibio (gli unici giunti fino a noi per intero) nella bella traduzione latina dell'umanista italiano Niccolò Perotto (o Perotti). Il testo latino (impresso a Firenze dagli eredi di Filippo Giunti nel 1522) era già stato stampato da Sebatianus Gryphius nel 1542, seguito da un'epitome dei libri di Polibio fino al diciassettesimo (appendice presente anche nel volume in esame). Esemplare in buono stato conservativo.
