AMBROSIUS (Santo)
Froben 1555 Cinque parti legate in tre volumi di cm. 33, pp. 2200 ca. complessive. Marchi di Froben ai frontespizi ed ai colophon e bei capolettera istoriati. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con titoli manoscritti ai dorsi. Esemplare genuino e con poche tracce d'uso, marginoso e ben conservato. Ex libris incisi. Si tratta della terza edizione di questa celebre edizione curata da Erasmo da Rotterdam. Il nostro esemplare risulta censurato nelle parti in cui appare il nome di Erasmo. In occasione del suo nome era stato anticamente applicata della carta, come ad esempio al frontespizio del primo volume. Nalla maggior parte dei casi la stessa carta è stata rimossa ed il testo risulta leggibile. Sono state però rimosse quattro carte di dedica tra le preliminari del primo volume.

FINAEI Orontii.
Lutetiae Parisiorum, apud Michaelem Vascosanum,, 1555. 1555 In-4°; cc. 1b, (4), 72, 1b. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena (dorso restaurato). Le ultime quattro carte uniformemmente brunite ma perfettamente leggibili, lieve gora d'umido all'angolo inferiore dx a tutte le carte. Oronce Finé fu insigne matematico, nato a Briançon nel 1494, morto a Parigi nel 1555, dove, fin dal 1552 ebbe la cattedra al Collegio Reale. Fu noto come valente meccanico e costruttore di orologi. 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..

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]

EUCLID of Alexandria
Augsburg: Valentine Ottmar, 10 April 1555. Very rare first appearance of any part of Euclid’s work in German, and one of the earliest vernacular editions (preceded only by Italian translations). This is a fine copy with a distinguished provenance.<br/><br/>Although this work contains only three of Euclid’s ‘books’ 7-9, it contains essentially all of his results relating to arithmetic and number theory, and forms a coherent collection. The six earlier books, first published in German translation in 1562, treat the geometry of lines and circles, while the later books deal mainly with three-dimensional geometry. Book 7 deals strictly with elementary number theory: divisibility, prime numbers, and the Euclidean algorithm for finding the greatest common divisor and least common multiple. Here Euclid also establishes the fundamental theorem of arithmetic, that (in modern terms) every positive integer can be written as a product of primes in an essentially unique way. Book 8 deals with proportions in number theory and geometric sequences. Book 9 applies the results of the preceding two books. Here is Euclid’s great proof that there are infinitely many prime numbers. He also gives the sum of a geometric series, and the construction of even perfect numbers (i.e. numbers that are equal to the sum of their divisors).<br/><br/>The editor of the present work, Johann Scheubel (1494-1570), was professor of mathematics at the University of Tübingen. Scheubel had earlier produced a Latin edition of Books I-VI (Basel, 1550); an arithmetic text, <i>De numeris et diver … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRST EDITION OF THE THE FIRST BOOK ON THE GAME OF TENNIS, dedicated to Alfonso d'Este (1535-95), last Duke of Ferrara, grandson on his mother's side of Louis XII of France, and on his father's side of Lucrezia Borgia. Scaino, a priest and theologian, was apparently prompted to write his book after a dispute arose during a game of court tennis. In it he establishes rules and a scoring system for the game, sets the standard court sizes, and mentions some principles of etiquette to be practiced between players. It also covers many forms of tennis, his definition of "ball-game" in W.W. Kershaw's English translation (London, 1951) being: "a contest between at least two players who, placed one on one side and the other on the other as adversaries, do battle together with a solid and round instrument made from the skin of an animal and capable of bouncing, called a ball, each doing his utmost to obtain victory for himself … [Click Below for Full Description]

FLORIANO, Antonio
Venice: Antonio Floriano, 1555. 2 sheets, joined (21 4/8 x 34 4/8 inches). Fine engraved double-hemisphere map constructed on a polar projections, with each hemisphere cut into thirty-six gores, in the manner of printed globes. In 1555, the Venetian Senate granted Antonio Floriano of Udine a privilege (the Renaissance equivalent of a copyright) to publish this map of the world. In his application to the Senate, Floriano wrote that he had used his "diligence and knowledge" to create "a mappemonde which has never been made before, with the aid of which one can easily study and learn cosmography and see the entire picture of the world, since it can be reduced to spheric form." Dramatically, Floriano wrote that the map had caused him "so much drudgery and sweat," such "heavy toil," that it defied the imagination. The result of Floriano's labor was this unique world map, which shows not the eastern and western hemispheres--later one of the most popular formats for world maps--but rather the northern and southern hemispheres, with the earth shown as if bisected at the Equator. In yet another graphic innovation, Floriano divided each hemisphere into thirty-six curving triangular segments meant to imitate globe gores: the sections that, when joined at the edges, generated the spherical form. Floriano's gores each encompass ten degrees of longitude (hence thirty-six of them, for a total of 360 degrees). Floriano's intriguing map bears no title, location or date, and two cartouches at top and bottom that were clearly meant to contain text were left incomplete.

Madrid: Testimonio. New. Hardcover. THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GOLD SEAL IN THE WORLD<p>The secret archives in the Vatican contain the most valuable and most famous collection of gold and silver seals in the world: 81 exceptional pieces dating from the 12th to the 19th centuries. 64 of them are in gold plate, 13 of them are wax seals with gold cases, and 4 are in solid gold. Among the latter is the seal that we have reproduced, which was affixed to a ceremonial document (A. A. , Arm. I-XVIII, 522) sent by Philip II to Pope Paul IV in 1555. Since that date, this work of art has been kept in the Pope's private archive, and is said to be the most beautiful seal conserved in the Vatican. </p><p>The document validated by this seal was written at a critical moment in relations between the Holy See and the Spanish monarchy, represented at that time by Emperor Charles V. The sending of this document and the gift to the Pontiff of an art work containing 800 grams of gold could be considered as an attempt to calm the political tensions between Spain and the Holy See, but it might equally have been intended as a veiled warning from the Spanish prince that the Pope's policies could lead to confrontation with the wealthiest and most powerful monarchy in Europe.
