BOUELLES, CHARLES DE
Paris: Imprimé par Benoist Prevost pour Guillaume Cavellat, 1555. Fourth Edition . Hardcover. A Fine, Fresh Contemporary Copy of the First French Geometrical Treatise. 222 x 156 mm (8 3/4 x 6 1/8"). 79, [1] leaves. Fourth Edition. Appealing period calf, covers with blind-ruled frame, gilt fleuron cornerpieces, and stylized floral centerpiece, raised bands, spine panels with small gilt fleuron at center, newer(?) tan morocco label.

Front pastedown with the armorial bookplate of the Macclesfield library; title page with the embossed Macclesfield stamp. Brunet I, 1188; Mortimer 116.

This is a very well-preserved copy, in an unsophisticated period binding, of the rare fourth edition of the first geometrical treatise in French. It is the most important mathematical work of Charles de Bouelles (known additionally as de Bouvelles, de Bovelles, and Carolus Bovillus, 1470-1553), a French scholar and canon of Noyon who also wrote b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bologna, Nova Academia Bocchiana, 1555.In-4 picc. Legatura del '700 in pelle, filetti dorati sui piatti, dorso con filetti dorati e tassello, merletto dorato interno; cerniere abilmente restaurate. Una silografia a p. pag., un ritratto a p. pag. del Bocchi, e 151 grandi emblemi n.t. inc. in rame da Giulio Bonasone su disegni di Prospero Fontana, Parmigianino, Michelangelo, Giulio Romano e Raffaello, in prove fresche e nitide. (60), 347, (1) pp.; qualche lieve arrossatura marginale, ma buon esemplare della seconda tiratura della prima edizione a cui sono stati aggiunti due fogli preliminari con la dedica a Paolo IV e il privilegio del re di Francia. Prima edizione di uno dei primi libri italiani di emblemi e, nel suo genere, uno dei più belli del Rinascimento. E? probabilmente anche il primo libro impresso nella tipografia privata del Bocchi nel palazzo che l?autore si era fatto costruire dal Vignola, tipografia apprezzata per la cura della stampa. Qui si trovava anche l?Accademia Bocchiana o Ermetana, i cui membri svolsero un ruolo notevole nella vita culturale bolognese e quasi sicuramente contribuirono alla realizzazione dell?opera. Questa si compone di 151 epigrammi, illustrati da altrettanti emblemi, nei quali si nota l?influenza dell?Alciato; l'autore tuttavia aggiunse esperienze emblematiche presenti nella cultura bolognese. Notevole è la presenza di motivi erotici alessandrini e petrarcheschi, di avvenimenti sorprendenti, aneddoti di autori classici, della simbologia orientale e mistici. DBI XI, pp.67-70.

Hughes PINARD
Acquaforte e bulino, 1555. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, stampata su tre fogli uniti, con inusuali margini oltre l?impronta del rame, restauro perfettamente eseguito all?angolo inferiore destro, per il resto in eccellente stato di conservazione.Rarissima veduta a volo d?uccello della città, presa dal Gianicolo. L?opera edita dalla tipografia di Antonio Lafrery e Antonio Salamanca è incisa dal fiammingo Jacob Bos. ?È certo una delle più belle e rare piante uscite dall?officina del Lafrery e venne sporadicamente inserita anche nelle prime edizioni dello Speculum. Esiste una edizione sempre del 1555, ma pubblicata da Antonio Salamanca, in quel periodo socio del Lafrery. La città è rappresentata a volo d?uccello da un punto di vista sollevato sulla perpendicolare del Gianicolo quel tanto da rendere leggibile prospetticamente il tracciato delle strade. Il risultato è una veduta che, senza rinunciare all?aspetto tecnico e descrittivo, compone un?immagine pittorica di indubbio effetto decorativo. Il tessuto viario e gli edifici principali sono chiaramente riconoscibili e per la prima volta fanno da protagoniste le costruzioni della Roma contemporanea sui ruderi della Città antica, pure raffigurati in modo fedele. La rappresentazione della campagna dentro e fuori le mura rivela una chiara derivazione della pianta del territorio di Roma di Eufrosino della Volpaia. Questo modello di rappresentazione della città avrà enorme successo ed influenzerà un cospicuo filone della vedutistica romana per oltre due secoli? (cfr. Le Piante di Roma delle collezioni private).

Grande impegno pose nel diffondere l'interesse per gli studi matematici, anche con la diffusione di opere straniere, all'epoca del tutto trascurati in Francia. I suoi studi sulla quadratura del cerchie e la duplicazione del cubo non ebbero esito felice. Cfr.: Smith, 163; Adams, F 463; Honeyman, part. IV -1314.

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, rather worn, spine with some cracking, marbled paper sides, a few small holes to joints. 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 154 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dedicato da Lodovico Dolce a Coriolano Martirano. Cfr. Bongi,I, 475-476: ?Il titolo del poema, era stato fin qui assai variamente posto nei codici e nelle edizioni.. In questa del 1555 per la prima volta si disse "divina" l'opera sua e "Divina Commedia" fu poi il titolo accettato da tutto il mondo.. Per questa singolarità, per la eleganza e per le non disprezzabili cure che il Dolce vi pose attorno, malgrado il difetto della scorrezione, l'edizione presente occupa un luogo onorato nella bibliografia dantesca. Questa è l'unica edizione del Dante che fecero i Gioliti" - Gamba,389: "Raro. Nel frontesp. porta l'anno 1555, ma in fine si legge 1554.. Elegantissima edizioncella" - De Batines,I, p. 90-91: "Rara nitida edizione" - Brunet,II,504: "Edition bien imprimée et faite avec soin" - Mambelli,39. Esemplare ben conservato.

Belon, P.
Anvers [Antwerpen, Antwerp], Christofle Plantin, 1555. Small, thick 8vo (14.3 x 9.4 x 4.5 cm). [lxxvi], 375 numbered leaves [= 749 pp. ], one printed leaf with the privilege, one larger, folded map/view. Later vellum. Spine with black printed title. The first Antwerp edition of this influential work on the history, geography, and natural history of the Near and Middle East by the French naturalist and explorer Pierre Belon du Mans (born 1517-murdered in Paris, 1564). Belon travelled through these regions between 1546 and 1550 and made numerous observations on the plants and their use, on animals (including a great deal on herpetology), people (with their various costumes), and towns. The work includes the folded "map" with a view on Mont Sinai, and in the text a similar map/view of Alexandria. His reports are generally correct and not rooted in fantasy and hearsay as is often the case with his contemporaries, the sole exception being the illustration of a small dragon-like creature. Other woodcuts show trees, birds, mammals, snakes, a crocodile, a giraffe, a lobster, etc. The partially dyed fore and bottom edges suggest that this book may once have been bound in an oblong form. Some light, mostly marginal spotting but generally quite clean. The binding is modern in contemporary style. Rare in any a state. Brunet, 4533 [p. 762, with illustration of the Plantin mark]; Nissen ZBI, 304. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
