Séneca, Lucio Anneo.
Lorenzo Torrentino, Stampator Ducale,, Firenze: 1554 - 4 hojas, 204 páginas, 1 hoja. Encuadernación de la época en cartoné con el lomo de pergamino y tejuelo de piel. 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. 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. 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 considered on par wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ramusio, Giovanni Battista.
Venice, heredi di Lucantonio Giunti, 1554-1574.. 3 parts in 3 folio volumes (302 x 205 mm). (4), 34, 436 ff. 30, 248 ff. 6, 34, 455 (not 456) ff. 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. Instead of accounts carelessly copied and translated from previous collections, perpetuating errors and anachronisms, we find in this valuable work … [Click Below for Full Description]

Drawing on classical authors, mostly Roman, and especially on Plurarch's Moralia, Fausto sets forth the rights, privileges, and responsibilities of women in this early example of the marriage customs and rites manual. Fausto Sebastiano was born in Longiano near Forli about 1502 and died in 1565. In 1532, he compiled an important translation and commentary of Petrarch, for which Fausto is considered to be one of the important critics of the period. Fausto interprets Petrarch's Rime Sparse (Rerum vulgarium fragmenta) as a spiritual drama that unfolds amidst the courts of Europe where the Christian poet faces greed and baseness of every sort proffered by bishops and priests, popes and princes, grandes dames and whores, all the whil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig. Ohne das letzte weiße Blatt. Einband gering berieben, sonst gut erhalten.

II, 731; Wellisch A32.3; Ferguson I, 313; VD16 G1803 Second edition. - "This collection of recipes for medicines, the destillation of essential oils, and winemaking was first published under the pseudonym Euonymus Philiatrus... because Gessner considered it not quite up to his own exacting standards. It became, however, his most popular work..." (Wellisch). - Wellisch quotes (erroneously ?) an appendix of 42 p. for this edition. It is not present here and neither mentioned in Ferguson's collation nor elsewhere. - Small stamp on title, some foxing at either end, else a clean copy. Mid-19th century boards, a bit rubbed

Folio. 8 n.n. Bl., 256 Bl. Mit gestochenem Titel mit Porträt und koloriertem Wappen sowie 81 ganzseitigen Tafeln gestochen von Antoine Lafreri. Roter Maroquinband der Zeit mit filigraner Deckeleinfassung und goldgeprägten Supralibros. Nissen 3555. - Adams S-190. - Mortimer Italian 454. - Hirsch V, 160. - Salviani war Leibarzt dreier Päpste und in erster Linie ein humanistischer Stubengelehrter. Er anerkannte Rondelets Überlegenheit als Ichthyologe an, fand aber zu Recht dessen Illustrationen, die er im Original einsehen konnte, als zu ungenügend. Deshalb stellte er den jungen Maler, Bernardo Aretino an, der auf dem Fischmarkt von Rom die angebotenen Tiere abzeichnen musste. Die Kupfer stehen weit über den Illustrationen der Ausgabe von Rondelet. - Titelblatt alt hinterlegt und auf Japanpapier aufgezogen. Mit dem kolorierten Wappen des Kardinals J.P. Caraffa, der 1555 Papst Paul IV. wurde. Dieses Wappen als Supralibros ebenfalls auf den Einbanddeckeln. Mit einem handschriftlichen zeitgenössischem Schenkungsvermerk auf dem Titel. Durchgehend, zu Beginn stärker fingerfleckig, stellenweise gebräunt. Fünf Blätter mit grösseren Einrissen. Ohne den hinteren fliegenden Vorsatz. Einband fleckig.
