(SHAKESPEARE, William.) GIOVANNI FIORENTINO.
Milan [Lucca]: Appresso di Giouann' Antonio de gli Antonij, [but Benedini,], 1554 [1740]. nel quale si contengono cinquanta novelle antiche, belle d'inventione et di stile. Small octavo. Contemporary antique-style blindstamped sheep, gilt gauffered edges. Woodcut printer's device on title and final colophon leaf. Extremities rubbed, some gatherings a little toned, an excellent copy. Scarce counterfeit edition dated 1554 (before the first edition of 1558) but actually printed in Lucca in 1740. This collection of 50 short stories is titled Il Pecorone, Italian for "simpleton". It was written by Ser Giovanni Fiorentino around the end of the 14th century and first printed in 1558. It seems to have served as a key source for The Merry Wives of Windsor and The Merchant of Venice. One tale has many striking details of the "pound of flesh" story: an Italian merchant, a Jewish moneylender and a lady of Belmonte. Shakespeare probably read the tales in Italian, since no English version was printed until 1632.

MODIO, Giovanni Battista
Rome: per Valerio e Luigi Dorici fratelli Bressani, 1554. 1554 1ed Il Convito Italian Renaissance Modio Sexuality & Misogyny Gender ROMEA rare, 16th-century book on gender roles, human sexuality, and misogyny. Giovanni Battista Modio was a 16th-century Italian philosopher and author who is best known for his famous book 'Il Convito'. This work of literature is a dialogue set in Rome during the carnival of 1554 which focuses on the roles of husbands and wives, and human sexuality. Modio's most popular work has since been considered a classic in misogynistic literature and describes traditional misogynistic arguments against marriage. (Cox, p.123). Modio makes his arguments based on the traditions of Roman mythology and how the Roman gods acted toward sexuality and relations with women. (Giannetti, p. 121).

CICERO Marcus Tullius
1554. Aldine device on title page. 3-line initial spaces, all with guide letters. 8vo (168 x 109mm). 240(ie. 248)ff. Half-pigskin, with marbled paper over pasteboard and calf label on spine, lettered in gilt (label slightly chipped, edges bumped and worn). Venice, Paulo Manutio, The second part of Cicero's Rhetoricum ad C. Herennium and a copy of the 1546 edition that made the literary reputation of its publisher, Paulus Manutius, after he gained control of the Aldine press in 1533. These are well-executed later editions, with corrections and improvements made to the text (Renouard). A skilled latinist, Manutio was a respected scholar of Cicero, himself correcting editions of the statesman's letters and orations for publication (among them the distinctive and unusual quarto volumes, printed in octavo, of the same year) as well as writing epistles of his own in Ciceronian style. The prefatory letter is addressed to French churchman and diplomat Jean de Montluc, French ambassador to Venice in the years immediately preceding the 1546 edition, from whence it is also copied. Provenance: Bookplate of 'A. Wahler' on front paste-down, possibly the German latinist and author of a textbook on Latin stylistics (1918), and ownership mark of Italian lawyer Pietro Gini inscribed on front free endpaper. Annotation, washed out inscription on title page and sparse, neat marginal annotations in brown ink throughout De Orator.

Titolo entro bordure in legno che mostra una scena d'amore agreste. Colophon alla c. E4v. Mezza pergamena moderna con punte, piatti ricoperti in carta decorate. Margine esterno tagliato a filo del testo, lievi bruniture. RARISSIMA EDIZIONE,stampata da un tipografo veneziano non identificato per conto del cantastorie ed editore Baldassarre Faentino detto "Il Tonante", della traduzione italiana di questa celebre novella spagnola del Cinquecento. Apparentmente si conosce una sola altra copia conservata presso la BNF. Si tratta dell'unico libro conosciuto fatto stampare a Venezia da Baldassare Faentino, che per le sue non numerose pubblicazioni si servì prevalentemente di Venturino Ruffinelli a Mantova e di alcuni tipografi non identificati a Firenze. Ruffinelli aveva stampato la Historia del Flores per Baldassarre Faentino nel 1552. Juan de Flores fu uno degli autori spagnoli più letti in Europa prima di Cervantes. La sua fama è soprattutto legata al racconto di Grisel y Mirabella, che, composto sul finire del XV secolo e pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1495, venne ristampato circa sessanta volte in varie lingue fino alla fine del Cinquecento. Insieme al Cárcel de Amor e alla Celestina, la novella del Flores rappresenta l'unica altra opera spagnola del tempo ad aver avuto una diffusione comparabile a quelle dell'Orlando Furioso o del Decamerone. La novella, che costituisce un importante documento femminista, fu letta soprattutto dalle d … [Click Below for Full Description]

Édition originale, ornée de nombreux bois dans le texte, certains à pleine page. L'oeuvre contient quinze articles sur différents sujets, "the last six showing his interest in law through treatment of such mathematical aspects of jurisprudence as division of land and inheritances. The first nine articles treat mechanical, arithmetical, and geometrical problems. The most original is Ad problema cubi duplicandi, in whic h he refutes Michael's Stifel's claim of an exact solution to this problem and gives an approximate one" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Le chapitre précédent, De la quadrature du cercle, réfute, parmi d'autres, les théories de son maître Oronce Finé. Johannes Buteo, ou Jean Borrel (1492-vers 1572), natif du Dauphiné, est une figure solitaire, qui passa sa vie en étude à l'abbaye de Saint-Antoine, hormis un séjour de quelques années à Paris pour compléter, sous la férule d'Oronce Finé, sa connaissance des mathématiques.

Spine label chipped, joints light rubbed; title slightly soiled, some occasional worming, most marginal. Item #402203 The text includes the "Priapea." Marc Antoine Muret, or Muretus as he styled himself, was one of the great humanists of the Renaissance, and is often considered the greatest Latin prose stylist of the age. His commentary of Catullus first appears in this edition, issuing a "new age" of scholarship according to D. F. S. Thomson. Muretus was "reinforced by a greater knowledge of Greek [than his predecessors].... What is above all interesting in Muretus is the union, characteristic of French Humanism in that period, of poetry and scholarship" (Catullus, ed by D. F. S. Thomson, Toronto, 1997, pp. 48-49). It was Paulus Manutius, Aldus' third son and successor, who made a place in Venice for Meretus when the latter was forced into exile for pederasty. The publisher assigned him the editorship of a series of classical texts, with this edition of Catullus being the first. Adams C-1145; BM/STC Italian, p. 161; Brunet I:1682; Renouard 162:19.

ANACREON
1554. Estienne's device on title page, one woodcut initial, two woodcut headpieces. Greek, Roman and Italic type. 4to (205 x 145mm). [8], 110pp. (lacking final blank). Vellum over pasteboard, spine with paper labels at head, red speckled edges (spine chipped and slight worming, vellum stained and scuffed, corners bumped). Paris, Henri Estienne, Editio princeps of an important collection of what were thought to be odes authored by Anacreon, only much later identified as the work of anonymous imitators in his style. This was the first volume to be published by Henri Estienne the Younger, although Schreiber asserts that it was Guillaume Morel who likely printed the text as Estienne did not own a press at this early stage in his career. Based on two manuscripts, one discovered in Italy and the other owned by Thomas More's friend, John Clements, the Greek text and its commentary make use of the three sizes of the grecs du roi typeface. The commentary is Henri Estienne's, and the Latin translation that follows the Greek has also been attributed to him. On its publication it was an influential and popular work, provoking the praise and imitation of Ronsard and Belleau, among others. In recognition of those of his verses that celebrated wine and conviviality, an 'Anacreontic Society' was established in London in the mid-eighteenth century. Provenance: Note on front paste-down in eighteenth-century hand, and verso of front free endpaper in different hand, suggest that this volume was part of the Kromayer library, likely in a sale of the library of Johann Heinrich Kromayer (1689-1734 … [Click Below for Full Description]

"This book represents a Landmark in the development of our knowledge of infectious disease. Fracastorius was the first to state the germ theory of infection. He recognized typhus and suggested the contagiousness of tuberculosis. Haeser describes him as the "founder of scientific epidemiology".

Marc Antoine Muret, or Muretus as he styled himself, was one of the great humanists of the Renaissance, and is often considered the greatest Latin prose stylist of the age. His commentary of Catullus first appears in this edition, issuing a "new age" of scholarship according to D. F. S. Thomson. Muretus was "reinforced by a greater knowledge of Greek [than his predecessors].... What is above all interesting in Muretus is the union, characteristic of French Humanism in that period, of poetry and scholarship" (Catullus, ed by D. F. S. Thomson, Toronto, 1997, pp. 48-49). It was Paulus Manutius, Aldus' third son and successor, who made a place in Venice for Meretus when the latter was forced into exile for pederasty.

BUDE (Guillaume).
Genève, J. Crespin, 1554. Fort volume in-folio, veau, dos à six nerfs orné de petits fers (reliure du XVIIe siècle). Texte sur deux colonnes non paginé ; signature : * (4), a-b (8), c-z (6), A-Z (6), aa-zz (6), Aa-Zz (6), AA-ZZ (6), *ZZ, aaa-ccc (6), ddd (8). Edition remaniée et augmentée de commentaires inédits de Guillaume Budé du dictionnaire de Toussain paru à Paris en 1552. Budé avait eu l'intention d'élaborer un dictionnaire grec dans l'esprit des principes qu'il avait appliqué dans ses Commentaires. Sa mort en 1540 ne lui permis pas de réaliser ce projet. C'est Jacques Toussain qui se chargea à partir de 1540 de préparer le dictionnaire grec conçu par Budé ; l'ouvrage ne vit le jour qu'après sa mort et fut mis en vente, après maintes difficultés, en 1552 par Charlotte Guillard. Cette édition de 1554 fut préparée par Claude Baduel, installé à Genève depuis 1551, à la demande de Crespin. Dans sa préface, Baduel rend hommage à la mémoire de Toussain et évoque les matériaux que la famille de Guillaumé Budé avait mis à la disposition de Crespin, dépassant largement ce dont disposaient les éditeurs parisiens du Lexicon de 1552.
