DEMOSTHENES
1554. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Demosthenes's orations are considered some of the most significant and important speeches on the politics of ancient Greek culture and Greek law. He spoke out about the use of the Greek navy, the importance of freedom, Athenian law, and the governing of the people. This rare, mid-16th-century printing of 'Orationum' was published by Aldine and features the expected printer's mark on the title page. [Attributes: First Edition]

[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. Vols. 7-12: These six bindings were bound in Wittenberg and were apparently bound in the same year, or in the following year, as the date of publication, thereby allowing us to more accurately date the respective binders' work. Vol. 7: Bound in the workshop of Matthias Juncker the Elder, active ca. 1537 to the late 1550's. Vol. 8-12: Bound in the workshop of Hans Canzler (d. 1580), who became "Ratsherr" in 1564 and owned one of the la … [Click Below for Full Description]

(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). LArt 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 loriginal espagnole. Dès les premiers mots du « proème », Pierre de Médine, en 1545, et son traducteur, en 1554, répètent une leçon quUlysse, et Gilgamesh avant lui, enseignaient déjà aux enfants du Croissant fertile et … [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.) Ex-libris manuscrit ancien sur le titre.Une tache d'encre à deux ff., infime galerie de ver de la grosseur d'une tête d'épingle, coupure restaurée dans la page de titre pour masquer un nom.

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]

The engravings are extremely detailed and accurate, giving our best early view of many of these species. 110 pages of tables give numerous cross-references to Aristotle, Pliny and many other mostly classical sources, citing relevant passages for almost every variety discussed, and there are alphabetical indexes of the Greek, Latin and common names. In addition to common fish, the plates include eels, sharks, skates, squids and an octopus.

He spent the remainder of his life working for the as a scholar, editor, corrector, and translator from the Greek, even declining a position as professor of Greek at Nuremberg for which he was recommended by Melanchthon in 1525 and 1526.. in his day there cannot have been many major productions of the Froben press which did not benefit from his selfless scholarly devotio.. There is also evidence that he collaborated on a number of editions by Erasmus. [also] Erasmus held Gelenius in high regard as is attested to by himself and others" (Contemporaries of Erasmus, II, pp. … [Click Below for Full Description]

GIRALDI CINTIO, Giovanni Battista (1504-1573)
Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari e fratelli. In 4to (cm 21,5); pergamena floscia coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli colorati; pp. (8), 287, (29). Marca tipografica al titolo ed in fine. Ex-libris di Felice Durando conte di Villa (1729-1791), celebre erudito e collezionista di libri. Capilettera e testatine istoriate. Qualche fioritura marginale, ma bellissima copia marginosa.PRIMA EDIZIONE dell'importante contributo dato dal Giraldi alla teoria letteraria e alla codificazione di nuovi e vecchi generi (tragedia, tragicommedia, satira, egloga, commedia, romanzo, poema eroico), di cui egli stesso nel corso della sua carriera diede vari esempi (cfr. R. Bruscagli, G.B. Giraldi: comico, satirico, tragico, in ''Il teatro italiano del Rinascimento'', Milano, 1980, pp. 261-283). La presente edizione comprende sia il discorso Intorno al comporre delle commedie e delle tragedie (composto nel 1543), sia il discorso Intorno al comporre dei romanzi (scritto nel 1549 e dedicato a G.B. Pigna), che ebbero inizialmente solo diffusione manoscritta e che costituiscono una testimonianza fondamentale e imprescindibile per comprendere la grande stagione poetica della seconda metà del secolo dominata dal Guarini e dal Tasso. Giraldi, pur prendendo spunto dalla Poetica di Aristotele, se ne distanzia fortemente, soprattutto nell'ambito del romanzo, che egli individua come un nuovo genere prettamente italiano, ma paragonabile al poema epico degli antichi, e che ha nell'Ariosto il suo modello principale (cfr. B. Weinberg, A History of Literary Criticism in the Italian Renaissance, Chicago, 1961 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fiorentino, Giovanni
Appresso di Giovann'Antonio de gli Antonij [ma Lucca, Benedini, 1740], Milano, 1554. in-8° piccolo (155x107 mm); leg. di pregio in cuoio con decori impressi a freddo al piatto e al dorso, dorso a cinque nervi; guardie in carta bianca, capitelli in seta, preziosi tagli dorati e riccamente operati; pp. [2], IX, (1 b.), (2), 5-227 (numerazione riportata ogni due pp. al recto), [1]; front. a caratteri neri; grande marca incisa al front. e al colophon raffigurante un grifone che tiene una pietra da cui pende una sfera alata, entro cornice; capilettera decorati. Poco diffusa prima edizione, ma in realtà si tratta delle celebre contraffazione lucchese, presumibilmente dell’edizione veneziana di Domenico Farri, stampata nel 1565; l'Autore, Giovanni Fiorentino, è stato uno scrittore italiano del secolo XIV, si presume che fosse originario della città di Firenze e, secondo quanto si apprende dal proemio del libro, nel 1378 sarebbe stato inviato in esilio per motivi politici nel paese di Dovadola in provincia di Forlì, ove scrisse le cinquanta novelle del Pecorone d’imitazione decameroniana; il libro è detto Pecorone da un nomignolo datogli in un sonetto burlesco che lo conclude; il testo contiene cinquanta novelle, narrate in venticinque giornate che terminano ognuna con una ballata, le cui fonti sono chiaramente desunte da autori come Apuleio, Boccaccio e dalla Nuova Cronica di Giovanni Villani; le novelle vengono narrate da Aurecto, che è l'anagramma di Auctore, e dalla monaca Saturnina, che è la sua amata; il titolo si deve ad un sonetto, del quale è incerta l'autenticità, che fa … [Click Below for Full Description]
