D'AFFLITTO, MATTEO (e BALDO degli UBALDI da Perugia).
Venetiis, 1555. In 8vo, front. con marca tip. ?Al segno della Fontana? (fontana zampillante a forma di anfora sorretta da puttini), cc. 118, (10 cc. n. n. di cui 2 c. b., 6 di indice bicolonne, 2 c. b.), scenetta xil. alla p. 4 che illustra un?assemblea di giureconsulti guidati da ?Matth. De Afflict.? (come risulta dal nome in bs. a sn.), capilett. incisi e ill., indice con il primo capilettera inciso e istoriato e gli altri grandi e in neretto, marca tip. in fine (fontana zampillante a forma di anfora con in cima una donna e intorno teste di puttini sostenute da satiri; sulla seguente c. b. si riflette, chiaramente inchiostrata, questa marca; sull?ultima c. b. si riflette invece, chiaramente inchiostrata, la marca iniziale con il testo del front.), leg. orig. in p. perg. floscia con tit. ms. lungo il dorso, unghie, tracce di laccetti (mancanti). Trattazione giuridica primamente impressa nel 1539 e ristampata fino al 1699 e oltre (la data della prima edizione è tarda, ma si riferisce forse alla prima comparsa dei due Autori insieme, poiché il ?De Jure Prothomiseos? del D?Afflitto ci risulta essere uscito per la prima volta a Venezia presso Bernardinus de Vitalibus per Alovisius & Franciscus de Rubeis il 27 luglio 1499). Gli autori: Matteo (o Mazzeo) D?Afflitto (?il Giovane?) (Napoli, 1448 ca. (secondo il Savigny) o 1443 (secondo il Novissimo Digesto Italiano) ? Napoli, 1528 ca.

Susio, Giovanni Battista
Vinegia: Apresso G. Giolito de Ferrari, et Fratelli, 1555. First edition. Large woodcut vignette (publisher's device); head- and tail-pieces, numerous large woodcut initial capital letters. Text printed in italic. 182, [18] pp. 4to. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title lettered along spine. Binding somewhat soiled and worn, title-page page a bit dusty, first four leaves show a mild early dampstaining at lower outer corners, contemporary owner's inscription to ffep; otherwise, overall, a lovely, unsophisticated, large-margined copy in its 16th-century binding. Susio's Rare Attack on Duelling: One Copy in the Last 30 Years An important and beautifully printed attack on the practice of duelling which has become quite rare on the market (whereas the second edition of 1558 shows up with some frequency). Thimm, who had never seen a copy himself, refers to one in "Captain Hutton's Collection" and calls for a folding plate -- in obvious error, for among the 10 copies located by OCLC in institutions, not one contains any plates; nor did the one dampstained copy which appeared at auction in 1996 (and which was mistakenly presumed to be incomplete). Susio (1519-1583), Renaissance man of letters, eminent physician, humanist, and poet, dedicates his book to Henry II, King of France, who passed an ordinance against duelling. The subject of duelling and its legal, ethical, and social implications was a hot one in the latter half of 16th century Italy, and Susio's work is among the most important of several to appear in his day (Mutio, il Duello, 1550; Attendolo, il Duello, 1560; Pigna, … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALFONSO X, Rey de Castilla.

(1f.blanc) + 112ff. chiffrés. + 116ff. chiffrés. + 102ff. chiffrés. + 20ff. 31ff. + 68ff. 8ff. 237ff. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs ornés (reliure espagnole du 18e siècle). Edition Originale de la version de référence des fameuses "Siete Partidas", texte fondamental pour l'histoire du Droit. Il exerça une influence considérable, dès son apparition au 13e siècle, sur tout l'Occident chrétien et, plus tard, sur les pays de l'Amérique latine auxquels il servit de base à l'élaboration de leur propre juridiction et où il fut en application jusqu'au 19e siècle et parfois même jusqu'au début du 20e siècle. Rédigé entre 1256 et 1265 par plusieurs juristes sous l'égide du roi de Castille Alfonso X, l'ouvrage aborde tous les aspects du savoir juridique à travers 7 grandes sections ("Partidas") que la qualité de leur rédaction en espagnol, place parmi les grands textes écrits dans cette langue. La présente édition, éditée par le juriste Gregorio López avec ses commentaires qui paraissent pour la première fois, constitue l'édition de référence, et un remarquable monument typographique à ce texte fondateur. Intéressant exemplaire enrichi d'un tome additionnel constitué des index et répertoires de l'édition de 1576, parue chez le même imprimeur. Traces d'humidité aux 60 premiers feuillets du premier tome, dues à un accident ayant déformé le plat supérieur du premier volume.

VERGIL, Polydore
Basileæ [Basle]: Apud Mich. Isingrinium [Michael Isingrin], 1555. . Folio in 6s, (ii), 691, (37 Index, 2) pp. Printer’s device to title and verso of final leaf, some worming and mostly light marginal damp staining at the beginning and the end, woodcut borders to two early leaves with some subtle old hand colouring, one with a small hole burnt through, bookplate of George Becher Blomfield, Canon of Chester. 19th century half calf over marbled boards, joints and corners expertly repaired. Born in Italy, Vergil came to England in 1501 or 1502 and except for a short period of imprisonment in 1515 enjoyed the patronage of the King with a series of clerical appointments. It was Henry VIII himself who asked Vergil to compose this history, and his researches led him to be in regular contact with many of the scholars of the day.& Although his imprisonment had made him an enemy of Wolsey and subsequently skewed the opinions of generations of historians concerning the Cardinal, the work as a whole was massive influential. “Vergil's historical method was far in advance of anything that England had then known. Unlike preceding chroniclers, he wrote a history on modern lines, attempted to weigh authorities, and told a connected story. As an authority he is invaluable for the reign of Henry VII, with whose aims and character he thoroughly sympathised, and he realised fully the changes which marked the passing away of the middle ages... The substance of his history became... common property” (DNB). Adams V448. First published 1534 with another edition in 1546, this edit … [Click Below for Full Description]

SPLENDID HAZEL BROWN CRUSHED MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT AND INLAID IN THE "FLORE ORNAMENTALE" STYLE, BY MARIUS MICHEL ET FILS (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers framed by dark brown morocco with yellow crescent cornerpieces, central panel inlaid with elaborately entwining foliage in brick red, with a strapwork centerpiece of inlaid cream and tan morocco, raised bands, spine compartments inlaid in similar style, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt over marbling. In a pleasing, chamois-lined red morocco slipcase. Printer's woodcut device on title page. Brunet I, 1162. Title page probably washed, first three leaves with barely perceptible repair to upper gutter corner, otherwise A CHOICE COPY, quite clean and fresh internally (even if lightly pressed), and IN A SPARKLING, UNWORN BINDING. Adorning an intriguing 16th century work of interest to women, this lovely binding appears to be an early specimen of the revolutionary style of ornamentation that did nothing less than change the course of bookbinding history in France; it is also a rare example of a binding signed by both the elder and younger Marius Michel. First published in 1530, "Triumphes de la Noble Amoureuse Dame" is an allegorical tale with an obvious moral thrust, despite its title's rather suggestive reference to "enamored ladies." Brunet informs us that the "Dame" of the title represents the soul in its quest for God's love, and that there is nothing erotic or romantic abou … [Click Below for Full Description]

[KEPLER, Johannes] MAGINI, Giovanni Antonio.
Very rare first edition, containing the first published tables of Martian positions calculated upon Keplerian principles (Voelkel & Gingerich, 240), anticipating by 13 years the publication of Kepler's own computational method in the <i>Tabulae Rudolphinae</i>. "The examination of Magini's 'Keplerian' tables offers a new and interesting insight into the early reception of Keplerian astronomy. For here, as though stuck in amber, we have a record of the moment in time during which one of Europe's leading astronomers was first coming to grips with a very odd but ultimately very significant new theory [i.e. that published in the <i>Astronomia nova</i>]" (<i>ibid</i>., 238). The work also contains the first printing of four letters each between Kepler and Magini which illuminate Magini's ultimately unsuccessful attempts to obtain Kepler's own tables.<br/><br/> "Giovanni Antonio Magini (1555-1617) is today best known as the man who in 1588 received the chair in astronomy at Bologna, a post coveted by the younger Galileo. To his contemporaries, he was known as an indefatigable calculator of mathematical tables and astronomical ephemerides... In mid-January of 1610 Magini wrote to Kepler that he had managed to see a copy of the new <i>Astronomia nova</i> in the hands of a local Bolognese bookseller, but that he had been able to examine it for only a single day because the book was reserved for a Venetian nobleman.

BELON DU MANS, Pierre.
Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1555. Small octavo, with title-page bearing striking printer's device, three maps including double-page plan of Mt. Sinai, finely executed woodblock illustrations; a most attractive copy in eighteenth-century sprinkled calf, spine gilt in panels with red label. One of the first explorer-naturalists: Pierre Belon's near-eastern travels in a beautifully printed account. Belon, a physician and naturalist best remembered for his work as a comparative anatomist and master of dissection, undertook long voyages through Egypt, Arabia, the Levant, Greece and Asia Minor between 1546 and 1550. He was a careful and meticulous observer who 'can be considered the originator of comparative anatomy... he enriched the biological sciences by new observations and contributed greatly to the progress of the natural sciences in the sixteenth century.' (DSB). Les observations de plusieurs singularitez et choses memorables... is a rich travel narrative, combining natural history detail with descriptions of the curious customs, costumes and history of the peoples Belon encountered on his travels. The work includes a fascinating diversity of material reflecting the author's innate curiosity, including chapters on the ancient labyrinths of Crete, opium cultivation and use in Turkey, the daily lives of children and the flooding of the Nile. Donald Lach described it as 'one of the most readable travelogues to appear in the sixteenth century'.Belon had travelled to the east as a member of a diplomatic mission that also included the archaeologist Pierre Giles, and later Guil … [Click Below for Full Description]
