Rocca, Vicente
Valencia: , 1555. Remarkable Spanish treatise on the Turks, first and only edition. 1555. Valencia. Juan Navarro. In folio (303 mm x 214 mm). 4 ff. + cliii. Eighteenth century stiff vellum, raised bands to spine, lettered in ink, head restored. A fine, wide-margined and unsophisticated copy, with only minor scattered foxing. First and only edition of the best 16th century work on the Turks. During the greater part of century of discoveries, Soliman the Magnificent?s expansion through the Mediterranean and across central Europe threatened Europe and Spain to the point only a large-scale invasion could. Valencian-born Rocca narrates the campaigns, battles and privateering activities of the Bereberes on the coasts of Valencia and Andalucia. The Hystoria is divided into three parts, the first deals with the crusades done to Jerusalem, the second with victories of Charles V and Venice over the Turks at the African coasts, and the third deals extensively with the way of life and customs of the Turks ?which allows us a glimpse of Spanish perception of what was one of the greatest nations of the 16th century. The work has been considered rare and important from the date of Salva. It is considerably rare, no copies are traced at auction in over 30 years. It is handsomely printed in two columns, with large engraved device to title page, gothic types. Salva, 3388. Palau, 271434.

Belon, P.
. Anvers (Antwerpen), Christofle Plantin, 1555. Small 8vo. [lxxvi], 375 numbered leaves [= 749 pp.], one printed leaf with the privilege, one larger, folded map. 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 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 quite modern in contemporary style. Rare in such a state. Brunet, 4533 [p. 762, with illustration of the Plantin mark]; Nissen ZBI, 304..

With title in woodcut border with Cavellet's device and initials at the foot, each part-title with Cavellet's woodcut device, 1 folding woodcut map (315 x 350 mm) showing Mount Sinai, 44 woodcuts in the text (including a portrait of the author by Geoffroy Tory), and numerous fine decorated initials. Main text set in italic, with preface and commentary in roman. Overlapping vellum (ca. 1600?), sewn on 5 cords, laced through the joints.. Third edition of Belon's "Observations", the fruit of his extensive travels in Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria from 1546 to 1549. Pierre Belon (c. 1518-64), famous for his works on ornithology, was attached as naturalist to the French embassy to the Ottoman Empire, aimed at convincing Suleiman the Magnificent to join forces against Charles V and led by Gabriel de Luetz (Luez, Luels) d'Aramont. The envoy sailed for Venice in December 1546 and proceeded to Croatia. Here Luetz continued overland to Adrianople (Edirne), while Belon sailed for Istanbul by way of Greece, visiting Lemnos, Macedonia, Crete and Kavala en route. He reached Istanbul in August 1547, explored the city and continued to Alexandria, while Luetz accompanied Suleiman to Persia. Belon's journey continued to Cairo, Mount Sinai, Jerusalem, Damascus, Baalbek, Aleppo, and to Turkey again. - Unlike many contemporary travel writers, Belon does not elaborate on extraordinary travel adventures, but rather limits himself to detailed observations on … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. Three short cracks at top and bottom of joints, corners somewhat bumped, leather on covers rather pitted, with noticeable loss of patina and a scattering of tiny wormholes, but the binding still sound and not without substantial antique charm.

(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.

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).

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.
