Cieza de León, Pedro de
Juan Steelsio, Antwerp, 1554. [8],285,[9] leaves. Woodcut illustrations. 12mo. 19th-century red morocco by Thibaron-Joly, spine gilt with raised bands, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Very good. One of two 1554 Antwerp editions of Cieza de León's highly regarded history of Peru, and the earliest obtainable edition, following the first edition in Spanish printed in Seville the previous year. The author, the foremost soldier-chronicler of the conquest, served under Pedro de La Gasca in his campaign against Gonzalo Pizarro during the civil war in Peru in the years following the conquest. "After the end of the civil war, he travelled extensively throughout Peru in order to collect information on both the conquest and the Inca world, with the clear intent of writing the first major history of Peru. When he returned to Spain in 1550, he managed to publish only the first part of his work.a thorough description of the land and people of Peru. 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. His wealth of information is the result of personal observation, the scrutiny of reports and official papers, and oral reports from Quechua Indians" - Delgado-Gomez. Considered the earliest history of the entire viceroyalty of Peru, LA CHRONICA. is illustrated with numerous woodcuts, several of which appear multiple times. In addition to images of building activities, possibly derived from earlier works on European architecture and monuments, the illustrations include images of the devil, indigenous a … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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.

Sabellico Marco Antonio
1554. In-4 (13) 244 c. Frontespizio 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 grandi maestri quali Pomponio Mel … [Click Below for Full Description]

Costume drawings].
Constantinople, later 16th century, 1554. 4to (168 x 212 mm). 8 watercolour drawings, some heightened with white or gold, captioned in German in a late 16th-c. hand, on 8 leaves and a further 24 blank leaves (for the watermark cf. Briquet 917: Nuremberg 1554 or 1565-82). Contemporary limp vellum without ties. An album of eight splendid costume paintings, by a talented, unidentified artist who may have been a member of the entourage of a German ambassador to the Porte. The subjects in this collection are captioned: "Der Kriechen Patriarch" (the Greek Patriarch); "Der Türckisch Keiser" (the Turkish Sultan); "Der Türckisch Babst" (the Grand Mufti); "Türckische weiber wie sie pflegen auf der gaßen zu gehen" (Turkish women, as it is their wont to dress in the street); "Also sizen die Türckischen weiber" (Thus sit the Turkish women); "Ein Epirotische frau wie sie in Iren Heusern zu Galata pflegen zu gehen" (a woman of Epirus, as they walk about in their houses in Galata); "Ein Kriegische fraw" (a Greek woman); and "Ein Armenerin" (an Armenian woman). - Great attention to both accuracy and details is shown: indeed, the suite may be related to another set of similar drawings in the Gennadius Library (A896 B), dated to about 1573 (cf. Blackmer Cat.). There is also some resemblance in style and presentation to certain of the costume illustrations in Nicolas de Nicolay's Navigations (1568, and later editions). Although Nicolay travelled in the Levant in the 1550s and was long thought to have drawn his costume subjects from life, doubt has been cast on this view, and it is now generall … [Click Below for Full Description]

Luther, Martin
Impressive set of the full works of Martin Luther in contemporary German bindings, mostly blindstamped pigskins with bronze clasps and corner-pieces, in all visually striking assemble of renaissance bindings dressing some of the most influences writings of the Reformation. Illustration: volume two with the famous "Daniel's Dream Map" (cf. Shirley 65), large woodcuts in volume 9 reworking Cranach's "Papsteel und Monchskalb", title page woodcuts in each volume by Cranach the Younger (Luther and Elecor Johann Friedrich of Saxony kneeling before the Crucifix). The set consists of two distinct sets of binding and two distinct publishing efforts: volumes 7-12 were bound in Wittenberg by Matthias Juncker (volume 7) and Hans Cantzler (volumes 8-12). These volumes belong to the FIRST WITTENBERG EDITION of the 12-volume Luther Werke. Vols. 1-6: All six bindings are dated 1570 and were elaborately bound by an individual referred to as "Meister F.G." This particular workshop apparently has never been described (in print or online), in spite of considerable effort on our part, and by other historians of the history of binding.

(corps d'ouvrage particulièrement frais). Plein vélin d'époque, dos lisse avec traces de titrage à l'encre, tranchefils traversant les coiffes, traces de lacets. (accidents aux coiffes). Rare première édition italienne de ce célèbre traité de navigation, premier ouvrage scientifique consacré au sujet. L'historien et hydrographe, Pierre de Médine naquit en 1493, sans doute à Séville, et mourut probablement en 1567. Humaniste et savant, il publia cinq livres, dont trois au moins en Andalousie : Libro de grandezas y cosas memorables de España, Libro de la Verdad (Séville, 1549), Arte de navegar (Valladolid, 1545), Cronica breve de España (Séville, 1548), Tabula hispaniae geographica (Séville, 1560), Cronica de los duques de Medina (1561). L’Art de naviguer connut un immense succès en Europe, comme en témoignent ses nombreuses traductions. La présente est due à Vincenzo Paletino da Corzula, traduite de l’original espagnole. Dès les premiers mots du « proème », Pierre de Médine, en 1545, et son traducteur, en 1554, répètent une leçon qu’Ulysse, et Gilgamesh avant lui, enseignaient déjà aux enfants du Croissant fertile … [Click Below for Full Description]

Signatures : [A-B]8 [A-Z]8 [Aa-Nn]8. Il manque le feuillet de titre (joint en fac-similé) ainsi que la carte hors-texte. Quelques cernes dans les marges. CHRONIQUE FONDAMENTALE POUR L'HISTOIRE DE LA DECOUVERTE DE L'AMERIQUE, la Historia general de las Indias fut rédigée par Gomara vers 1551 à partir d'une abondante documentation, recueillie tant dans les ouvrages de Cortès, Anghierra, Oviedo, que des témoignages d'anciens conquistadors. Bien que son récit manque totalement d'objectivité, puisque Gomara cherche autant que possible à montrer les bienfaits de la christianisation des indiens et à légitimer les violences des conquistadors, il demeure le plus vaste et le plus complet ouvrage publié au XVIe siècle sur la conquête du Nouveau Monde. L'édition originale fut publiée en deux parties à Saragosse en 1552. Notre édition est l'une des deux impressions anversoises de 1554, l'autre ayant été donnée par Martin Nucius (en 300 ff.)

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. (Olivier Reverdin. Les premiers cours de grec au Collège de France, Paris, 1984.)

Appianus Alexandrinus.
Basel, Johann Froben & Nicolaus Episcopius, 1554. Folio. 8 Bll.nnum., 506 Ss., 23 Bll.nnum., das erste weiss. Mit zwei Holzschnitt-Druckermarken und zahlreichen Initialen. Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit mit 4 (von 8) Bindebändern. Erste Ausgabe der von dem Prager Humanisten Sigismund Gelenius übersetzten Fassung von Appians Geschichtswerk, der hier den griechischen Text, und nicht die frühere Übersetzung des Candidus benutzte. Gelenius (Sigmund Hruby (1497-1554), kam wohl 1524 nach Basel, wo er zuerst mit Erasmus zusammenarbeitete und dann fast 30 Jahre für Froben als Übersetzer und Lektor tätig war. "G.[elenius]' immense philolog. Leistung, die in den vielen von ihm betreuten Editionen der Froben'schen Druckerei steckt, ist bisher noch nicht befriedigend untersucht worden." (Ueli Dill in: Historisches Lexikon der Schweiz). Gelenius starb kurz vor der Fertigstellung des Buches, worauf der Herausgeber Curio die von Gelenius geplante Widmungsvorrede an Bonifacius Amerbach vom 7. Juni 1554 zu einem Nachruf auf den Übersetzer ausgestaltete (dazu ausführlich: Schottenloher, Widmungsvorrede S. 57, 117 f.). - Blindstempel und Kaufeintrag des Klosters Steingaden von 1649 auf dem Titel, vorderer Vorsatz etwas knittrig, sonst kaum fleckiges, schönes Exemplar. - First edition translated by the Prague humanist Gelenius, finely printed by Froben & Episcopius. - Blindstamp and ownership inscription, dated 1649 (monastery Steingaden), good copy. - VD16, A-3164; Hoffmann I, 217; Hieronymus GG 266.

PELETIER DU MANS, Jacques.
Jean de Tournes, Lyon. First edition, very rare, of ?the first printed book on algebra in French and the richest among vernacular books on algebra? (Cifoletti, ?The algebraic art of discourse,? in Chemla, p. 125). Peletier believed that French was the perfect instrument for the sciences and ?wrote L?Algèbre in French in his own orthographic style. He adopted several ingenious ideas from Stifel?s Arithmetica integra (1544) and showed himself to have been strongly influenced by Cardano. He was the first mathematician to recognize relations between the coefficients and roots of equations? (DSB). Peletier?s innovative mathematical symbolism can be seen as anticipating the introduction of symbolic algebra by François Viète (1540-1603) in his In artem analyticem isagoge (1591) (see below). Peletier?s ?principal innovation resides in the introduction of as many symbols as there are unknowns in the problem, as well as in the fact that the unknowns in the problem correspond to the unknowns in the equations, in contrast to what was being suggested by, for example, Cardan and Stifel? (Cifoletti, p. 1396). ?The introduction of arbitrary representations for the several unknowns in a problem is indeed part of Peletier?s central idea of elaborating an ?automatic procedure? to tackle the problems under consideration. Instead of having recourse to sophisticated artifices like those used by Diophantus several centuries before the Renaissance, the symbolic representation of several unknowns offered the basis for a clear and efficient method ? Peletier?s immense genius led him to see that the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plutarco
apud Mich. Isingrinum [Isengrin], 1554. In-folio (332x215mm), ff. (42), 270 [i.e. 271], legatura antica in m. pergamena e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e piatti rivestiti in carta decorata a motivi floreali. Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Marca tipografica al titolo con una palma fra i cui rami s'intravede una pietra e la scritta Palma Ising entro cornice polilobata. Dedica a stampa al Vescovo di Basilea, Filippo di Gundelsheim. Capilettera xilografici istoriati, in parte ricavati dall'Alfabeto della Morte di Holbein. Indice tricolonne preliminare. Antche note di possesso al titolo. Alcuni dei nomi dei traduttori (Erasmo, Simone Gryneo, il Pirckheimer, Melantone, il Cornarius, ecc.), talora sgraditi alla Chiesa cattolica in quanto protestanti, risultano cassati a penna nei titoli e nel testo. Qualche arrossatura fisiologica. Ottimo esemplare. Rara e pregiata cinquecentina di Basilea della traduzione latina (le versioni sono dovute a diversi umanisti, tra cui Erasmo) degli "Ethiká", o "Moralia" di Plutarco. Nonostante la titolazione (che fu data in realtà soltanto nel XIII secolo da Massimo Planude, che per primo li raccolse in un corpus organico), l'opera esorbita dalla pura trattazione di filosofia morale, finendo con l'abbracciare questioni di religione, politica, scienze naturali, letteratura, medicina. Graesse, V, 362; VD 16, P-3679. Manca all'Adams e a STC German. Latino
