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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

(8) 270 (44); legatura con tracce del tempo e una piccola mancanza (di circa 1 cm di diametro) al retro, leggermente allentata e con nervi parzialmente staccati all'interno; ininfluenti restauri al margine superiore delle carte A e A2, testo comunque estremamente fresco; nel complesso buonissimo esemplare; antica pagina quattrocentesca manoscritta con capilettera miniati usata come rinforzo - a vista - del dorso sotto la legatura; frontespizio con marca tipografica xilografata ed antica nota di possesso cancellata; capilettera parlanti xilografati; testo su 30 righe; testo in corsivo e su due colonne nella Tavola. Prima edizione, di notevole rarité sul mercato, del trattato del Segretario del Duca Alfonso II d'Este, Giovan Battista Pigna. Opera contemporanea alla forse pié famosa dedicata ai Romanzi, gié nel proemio l'Autore definisce queste due "discipline" come di "gran pregio" nella sua epoca. Pigna, presumibilmente per dare seguito a numerose conversazioni sul tema avute con il Duca, si sente quasi "costretto" a comporlo per poi dedicarlo ad Alfonso, gié considerato come molto erudito sulla materia. Il duello viene qui visto ed esaminato come una delle pié alte e meritevoli manifestazioni dell'Honore, in pie … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORIO, Bernardino
Giovan Maria Bonelli. In-4° (cm. 21 x 15,5), cc. 36 n.n., 557, due marche tipografiche, al frontespizio e al colophon, la cc. 36 bianca bianca al recto e con bella immagine mitologica xilografata al verso, nei fogli preliminari si leggono avviso dello stampatore ai lettori, tre dediche al Card. Ascanio Sforza Visconti (la seconda e la terza contengono rispettivamente ''delle lodi della historia'' e ''l'ordine di questa historia'') e la vastissima ''tavola di tutte le cose notabili''. Testo in volgare, carattere corsivo, bella legatura dei primi del'700 in pieno vitello nocciola, ricchi fregi e titolo su tassello al dorso il tutto impresso in oro, tagli rossi. Lievi abrasioni ai piatti ma nel complesso stupendo esemplare fresco. Seconda edizione (la prima apparve a Milano nel 1503 ed altra, curata dal Porcacchi, apparve nello stesso anno 1554) della più importante storia di Milano, divisa in sette parti, dalle origini alla fuga del Moro in Germania. Il nome di Bernardino Corio è legato quasi esclusivamente alla sua opera Patria historia, storia di Milano in volgare dalle origini al 1499 stampata nel 1503, dopo la conquista del ducato a opera di Luigi XII di Francia. Oltre che per la documentazione, altrimenti perduta, offerta dall'autore (soprattutto per i secoli 14° e 15°), essa è rilevante in quanto opera di riferimento sulla storia milanese sin dai primi decenni del Cinquecento, ampiamente utilizzata dalla storiografia successiva, non soltanto locale (come dimostrano gli esempi di Niccolò Machiavelli e Francesco Guicciardini).

[Mambrino Roseo da Fabriano]
Michele Tramezzino, 1554. Edizione originale. Rifilatura piuttosto stretta al taglio di testa; un leggero alone al margine superiore delle carte 240-250, ma nel complesso un esemplare in ottime condizioni, con pochi segni del tempo. «Questo romanzo è tradotto dallo spagnolo e pare che appartenga agli Amadis» (Melzi e Tosi). I dati offerti dal Melzi-Tosi sono però da correggere: non di traduzione si tratta infatti, ma di composizione in tutto e per tutto originale, uscita dalla penna di Mambrino Roseo da Fabriano; l'ispirazione, naturalmente, viene dai romanzi di cavalleria spagnoli, ma l'autore, che era anche traduttore, inaugura qui una lunga serie di opere scritte di proprio pugno che contribuirono a dare un nuovo e vitale impulso alla letteratura cavalleresca del '500. E poi, più che riconducibile al ciclo di Amadis id Gaula, il 'Flortir' si configura come una continuazione del 'Platir' spagnolo, aprendo il cosiddetto 'Ciclo italiano di Palmerin': «composto da cinque traduzioni e sette continuazioni, ottiene uno straordinario successo editoriale con un centinaio di edizioni fra il 1544 ed il 1620» (cfr. «Progetto Mambrino», Univ. degli studi di Verona, Dip. di Lingue e Lett. Straniere, http://www.mambrino.it/spagnole/palmerin.php). Si pubblicò un secondo volume sei anni dopo. Di grande rarità, se ne contano solo 7 esemplari nel mondo, nelle più prestigiose biblioteche (tra cui la Bancroft Library di Berkeley, la Senate House Libraries di London, la BnF di Parigi e, per quanto riguarda l'Italia, la Braidense di Milano e la Marciana di Venezia).

Très rare édition originale des commentaires d'Andres Laguna sur la Materia Medica de Dioscoride.

Ces annotations sont des commentaires critiques et corrections de l'édition latine de Dioscoride donnée par Ruelle d'après des manuscrits grecs auxquels a eu accès Laguna en Espagne et en Italie. Intéressant exemplaire de Claude Saumaise (1588-1653), avec son ex-libris manuscrit sur la page de titre.

OBSEQUENS, JULIUS
Lyon: Jean de Tournes, 1554. First Edition with these Illustrations; First Edition in Italian. This is a rare and important edition of the fourth century writer Julius Obsequens (as well as two related works); it comprises intriguing accounts of 132 unnatural events and creatures recorded between 249 and 12 B.C., including storms, meteors, earthquakes, conflagrations, and various kinds of monsters, all intended to show miraculous manifestations of divine power and to be solemn warnings of coming events. Obsequens first appeared in an Aldine edition of 1508; then, in a 1552 Oporinus edition, the text was expanded by Conrad Lycosthenes, who had fashioned a substitute for the lost portion of Obsequens, based on Livy, Dionysus of Halicarnassus, Eutropius, and Orosius. De Tournes first issued the work (in Latin) in 1553, and the present Italian translation is his first edition with illustrations, which, of course, represent the volumes' chief appeal. Artist Bernard Salomon (fl. 1540-61) was de Tournes' chief designer, and his highly praised biblical woodcuts (among other productions), influenced several artists of the period. The second work here, by Polydore Vergil, is a refutation of the "science" of divination, first printed in Basel in 1531. A third work here (by Camerarius and not mentioned on the title page), is a dialogue mostly about comets and what their appearance signifies; it was published originally in 1532. The text here is set in a very appealing italic font, and Cartier praises our little book as a "très jolie volume imprimé en italiques.. 171 x 1 … [Click Below for Full Description]
