SLEIDAN (Iean).
Strasbourg, sans nom d'imprimeur, 1555. 2 volumes in-8. 8ff. 355ff. chiffrés. (1f.blanc) + 1f. ff.358-713. 18ff. (1f.blanc). Veau marbré, dos lisses ornés (Reliure du 18e siècle restaurée). L'une des quatre premières éditions imprimées à Strasbourg, de cet ouvrage important sur le règne de Charles-Quint, initialement paru la même année dans la même ville. "Contemporain de la paix d'Augsbourg, cet ouvrage divisé en vingt-cinq livres peut être considéré comme la première véritable histoire de la Réforme. Si ses limites chronologiques (1517-1555) correspondent à deux dates emblématiques de ce phénomènes religieux, il ne consiste pas seulement en une histoire 'ecclésiastique'. Indirectement, les Commentarii de Sleidan offrent aussi, comme leur titre l'indique, un large tableau du règne impérial de Charles-Quint ( ). Dès sa sortie de presse, ce livre connut un succès impressionnant: quatre éditions sont réalisées à Strasbourg au cours de la même année en 1555 et des traductions française, allemande, italienne, néerlandaise, anglaise et même suédoise voient rapidement le jour" (Grell). Cf. Chantal Grell, Les historiographes en Europe de la fin du moyen âge à la révolution (2006), p.96.

Bible. O.T. Psalms. Greek. 1555. Dolscius.
per Ioannem Oporinum, 1555. Sole edition of these Greek paraphrased psalms, done by Paul Dolscius while he was serving as a rector in Halle. Melanchthon was a great supporter of Dolscius (1526-89), whose translation work was so proficient that at one point his authorial byline on the Greek translation of the Augsburg Confession was assumed to be merely a pseudonym for the great reformer himself. The text here is simply printed with the Latin preface in roman and the main text in Greek using single columns; a 5-line decorative initial and a 7-line inhabited one (showing two kings in profile) complete the work. This is now an uncommon edition, with searches of Worldcat, COPAC, USTC, and NUC Pre-1956 revealing only three U.S. institutions reporting ownership. Provenance: An inked ownership stamp of notable 19th-century English bibliomaniac Richard Heber (1774-1833), reading "Bibliotheca Heberiana," appears on the front free endpaper; Thomas Frognall Dibdin added this stamp to select rare books in Heber's collection following the collector's death. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Oribasius
Apud Bernardinum Turrisanum. Oribasius ORIBASII SARDIANI COLLECTORUM MEDICINALIUM 1555 Vellum Binding Extremely rare Second edition of this compilation of writings by Oribasius, a Byzantine physician active in the fourth century A.D. According to Garrison, Oribasius "is chiefly remarkable as a torch-bearer of knowledge rather than as an original writer, but his compilations are highly valued by scholars in that he always give his authorities and, as far as is known, quotes them exactly" (History of Medicine, 122). First edition, Venice, 1554. Title: Oribasii Sardiani Collectorum medicinalium, libri XVII, qui ex magno septuaginta librorum volumine ad nostram aetatem soli pervenerunt Author: Oribasius - Oribasius or Oreibasius was a Greek medical writer and the personal physician of the Roman emperor Julian the Apostate. He studied at Alexandria under physician Zeno of Cyprus before joining Julian's retinue. He was involved in Julian's coronation in 361, and remained with the emperor until Julian's death in 363. In the wake of this event, Oribasius was banished to foreign courts for a time, but was later recalled by the emperor Valens. Oribasius's major works, written at the behest of Julian, are two collections of excerpts from the writings of earlier medical scholars, a collection of excerpts from Galen and the Collectiones, a massive compilation of excerpts from other medical writers of the ancient world. The first of these works is entirely lost, and only 25 of the 70 (or 72) books of the Collectiones survive. The first five surviving books deal with food and drink.

Boards are lightly age-darkened white vellum. Copy has ex-library stamp of "The Library of the Xavier Union" at bottom of title page, a square stamp "Case 13 Shelf" on inside front board and title page, and a small group of inked numbers at top of back flyleaf. (Addl. Title Page Content - in Latin): "Sibyllinorum oraculorum libri VIII. Addita Sebastiani Castalionis interpretatione Latina, quae Graeco erigionè respondeat. Cum annotationibus Xysti Betuleij in Graeca Sibyllina oracula, & Sebastiani Castalionis in translationem suam: quae annotationes numeris marginalibus signantur. Quae praeterea huic editioni ultra priorem accesserint, diligens lector ex praefationibus & collatione facilè deprehendet." It is not indicated exactly when this copy was published, but believe it was in late 1700s. The 'Sibylline Oracles' is a collection of Christian and Jewish poems about the apocalypse. This edition contains both the original Greek text and the Latin translation, published together. The translation was written by Sebasianus Castellio (or Sebastien Chatillon) in 1555. "They are a gold mine for students of Classical mythology and early first millenium Jewish, Gnostic and Christian beliefs. Notable are apocalyptic passages scattered throughout which at times seem like a first draft of the Biblical Book of Revelation.": Ex-Libris: 4 x 6 in.: 333 pages

Belon, Pierre
Paris: Guillaume Cavellat, 1555. First edition. pp. (28), 381, (1, colophon); general title and six divisional titles each with a large woodcut device, 161 woodcuts in the text, including a portrait of the author, 2 skeletons, and 158 large cuts of birds. Eighteenth-century brown one-quarter calf leather over sprinkled paper-covered boards (the boards are likely the original due to a faint imprint of another cover beneath the sprinkled paper and due to fact that the book is sewn on alum-tawed thongs laced into the boards), tall 4to (13 x 9 inches). Belon's L'Histoire is "one of the earliest books dealing entirely with birds" (Ayer, Zimmer, p. 52). The present volume was intended as a compendium of ornithology and contains (the author's) important comparison of human and avian skeletons, which became the foundation of the science of comparative anatomy (see comments in Ronsil, no. 189). This work is a handsome example of the Cavellat issue of this important Renaissance work of science--one of earliest printed ornithological books (See Nissen IVB 86; Norman 180; Mortimer French 50). Small bookplate on the front free endpaper, old name in ink crossed in the upper outer corner of the title page, no other ownership marks. Two pages have small marginal tears to paper with no effect to the text, the front attached endpaper has two old creases from the board that extend into the first section of the text, all of the text-pages and woodcuts are very bright and clean; a tight and clean copy in near fine condition. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Alighieri Dante
Venice Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari and Brothers 1554 - 1555. 12° (136x72 mm). Printed on blue paper. For the bibliographic description see the previous item, no. 116. Nineteenth-century vellum with yapp edges, over pasteboards. Smooth spine, with inked author's name. Pastedowns and flyleaves renewed. A good copy, in the first quires the upper and lower margins of some leaves have been restored. Repair to the upper margin of the last leaf. A few waterstains, spots, and ink stains. Fols. *3, A1, B3 and B4 from an ordinary copy, and later coloured blue. Possibly an eighteenth-century hand has annotated the upper margin of the first leaf with the number '1265', corresponding to Dante's date of birth.Another copy of the famous Divina Commedia edited for Giolito by the prolific Lodovico Dolce (1508-1568), one of Giolito's closest collaborators, and here exceptionally printed on blue paper. The colophon bears the date '1554'. The copy presented here is one of the few copies of the Commedia printed by Giolito on blue paper, a mode of production first introduced by Aldus Manutius in 1514. This stylistic choice was in keeping with oriental practices that were particularly widespread in Venice, a city with strong trading links to the East as well as a thriving dye industry. Like his illustrious predecessor, Giolito reserved the use of blue paper for those volumes he considered exceptional and evidently commissioned by distinguished clientele, while still providing a less expensive alternative to vellum. Copies of this edition printed on 'carta turchina' are recorded by Bongi in his An … [Click Below for Full Description]

Amazing condition near fine considering age, all signatures very nice. Original folds from sending out the Invitation a few spots and wear slight tears to places on edge see hi-res pics. Sold as is as a true artifact waf a true piece of History. 1555 INVITATION TO THE DIET OF AUGSBURG SIGNED BY CHARLES V and also very rare SIGNATURE OF Paul Pfintzing CHARLES V: Holy Roman Emperor King of the Romans King of Italy Also, this Invitation mentions the stark conditions of the war and a desire for peace. The Peace of Augsburg would bring the war to an end. He mentions his brother, "King of Rome"-the title given to the heir apparent in the Holy Roman Empire, who at this time was Ferdinand I. Here is a overall translation showing the gist of the Invitation: Due to the situation with wars, their cost, and other urgent business plus the alleged poor health of Charles V, he is inviting (i.e., ordering) the recipient to attend the Diet of Augsburg although he himself will not be there. In his place, his "friendly, dear" brother, the Roman King will run the meeting of the Diet to take place in Augsburg. There have been many postponements of this Diet--there will be more; the Diet took place more than a year later, in 1555. This perfectly matches the circumstances surrounding the negotiations that led to this Diet. Historians, citing Charles' correspondence, have said that he pretended to be sick and allowed his brother to run the Diet, because he himself could not accept the fact that Christendom would remain split between Catholics and Protestants. The title "Roman King" had long been u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basel, N. Brylinger, 1555. 8 Bll., 678 S., 1 Bl. Fol., etw. späteres Ldr., Rückensch. (VD 16, X 5. - Adams X 9. - Schweiger S. 335.) - Dritte Basler Ausgabe. Bedeutende Humanistenarbeit, der Text folgt Castalios Ausgabe, die lateinische Übersetzung von F. Philadelphus ist in Paralleldruck beigegeben. - Letzte Bll. mit kl. Wasserrand, Titel leicht angeschmutzt und mit altem Besitzeintrag, wenige alte Marginalien. Einband mit Gebrauchsspuren und Schäden, diese fachgerecht restauriert. Xenophons Werke, insbesondere die sokratischen Schriften und die Anabasis, waren unter anderem wegen ihrer nüchtern-klaren Sprache beliebt (er wurde unter anderem von Marcus Tullius Cicero gelesen und gelobt); er bleibt auch bis heute ein wichtiges Stilvorbild für das attische Griechisch. Da Xenophon teilweise Augenzeuge der berichteten Ereignisse war, ist er außerdem eine wichtige Quelle für die griechische Geschichte des 4. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. und hat in neuerer Zeit wieder das Interesse der Forschung erregt. Auch für die Philosophiegeschichte ist er von Bedeutung als kritische Ergänzung zur Darstellung des Sokrates in den Werken Platons. Seine Werke "Hipparchikos" und "De Re Equestri" werden heute vielfach als Grundlage der Hippologie gesehen. Die dort zu findenden Hinweise haben auch heute noch unverändert Gültigkeit. Xenophon machte sich auch Gedanken zur Ökonomie, die er vor allem in zwei Büchern festhielt: Oeconomicus (Gespräch über die Haushaltsführung) und De Vectigalibus (Mittel und Wege, dem Staat Geld zu verschaffen). In diesen beschäftigt er sich mit den Prinzipien guter Haushalts … [Click Below for Full Description]

Livy stood at the peak of annalistic historiography ... His genius lay in his power of vivid historical reconstruction, visualizing scenes and people, and conveying his impression by description and interpretation ... His success was immediate and lasting. His work was used by historians and epic poets ... In the Middle Ages Dante praised 'Livio che non erra.' The Renaissance saw him in high favor, and printing made him a popular author" (OCD).

Juan Pablos, [Mexico, 1555. 13-48,50-64,66-93,97-140,144-204,209-216,218-221 leaves. Small quarto. Contemporary vellum, remnants of fore-edge vellum ties, spine manuscript title. Vellum somewhat soiled, partially detached from text block. Lacking seventy-two leaves, including titlepage and engravings, with title and several engravings supplied in facsimile. Several leaves detached or loose, scattered contemporary manuscript annotations. Moderate dampstaining and dust soiling, some tanning, heavy wear to a few leaves. Fair. In a red half morocco and cloth slipcase with chemise. A wounded, but still substantial copy of this "rare and extraordinary work" (Palau), a legendary rarity of Americana. The work comprises the first dictionary printed on the first press of the New World by its first printer, Juan Pablos, and is among the first two dozen printed works in the Americas. This is the first edition, containing Spanish-to-Nahuatl translations; a second edition, with a Nahuatl-to- Spanish section added, was published by Antonio Espinosa in 1571, and thereafter many times over, demonstrating its enduring popularity and usefulness. Alonso de Molina, a noteworthy Franciscan scholar, came to Mexico as a child in the early 1520s, and grew up speaking both Spanish and Nahuatl, before entering the Franciscan monastery in Mexico City just prior to 1530. As a friar, he taught the language to other Franciscans, acted as an interpreter, and composed numerous sermons in Nahuatl and several works on the language, the present work being the first published. He continued to work on this dict … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORIBASIUS
Paris, apud Bernardinu Turrisanum sub officina Aldina, 1555. 8vo. ff. 332. Roman letter, occasional Italic, little Greek. Printer’s device to t-p, decorated initial and headpiece. T-p and first a bit dusty with minor loss to fore-edge, faint water stain to upper margin of first gathering, the odd ink spot, upper margin of last leaf a bit dust-soiled. A very good, well-margined copy in contemporary polished vellum, yapp edges, fragments of C14 ms to rear pastedown, rear joint a bit loose but sound. Bookplate of Milltown Park Library SJ and ex-libris Soc. Iesu Prov. Hib. to front pastedown. Very good, well-margined copy of the Latin translation of Oribasius’s fundamental Greek work on medicine by Giovanni Battista Rasario, professor at Pavia and Padua, renowned physician and translator of medical texts. After studying at Alexandria, Oribasius (320-403) was appointed physician to the Emperor Julian the Apostate. At Court, he compiled excerpts from Galen’s work and the ‘Collectiones medicae’ in 70 books, 17 of which appear in Rasario’s translation. ‘Collectiones’ is a monumental compendium of ancient medical authorities—e.g., Archigenes, Agathinus, Philotimus, Possidonius and Xenocrates—whose wisdom would have been otherwise lost forever. The work encompasses the composition and physical effects of specific foods (e.g., polenta, figs, palm dates and lentils), vegetables and herbs (e.g., nettles, asparagus, edible and poisonous mushrooms), meat and fish (e.g., sheep, ostrich and whale); treatments for sundry conditions (e.g., a long study of the benefits and administration of cl … [Click Below for Full Description]

ISOCRATES
haeredes P. Ravani & Sociis, 1555. 8vo. ff. (i) 51. Roman and Greek letter on opposing pages. Printer's woodcut device to t-p and verso of penultimate leaf. Slight age yellowing, outer margins generally thumbed, a few faint water stains, small marginal loss to fol. 24. A well-read but attractive copy in unrestored contemporary Florentine calf, a few small wormholes, traces of ties, one loose, double endbands. Small holes to final leaf, printer name erased. Triple-ruled panel design, outer border with blind-tooled fleurons to corners, rosettes and small round tools, central panel divided diagonally into compartments, each with blind-tooled rosettes and mudejar knotwork, double rule to inner edges. Spine in three compartments decorated with horizontal rules, raised bands. Extensive early annotation, bookplate of Carlo Chiassa to fep, faded circular stamp to t-p, contemporary autograph 'Nicolai Zanj' and small inscriptions to t-p. In folding box. The remarkably unrestored binding was probably made in Florence, where small blind- tooled round tools were often used alongside mudejar decoration (e.g., de Marinis I, 1006). Through its allusive Greek-style appearance, with double endbands and knotwork, it sought, like luxury 'alla greca' bindings in the libraries of wealthy humanists, to create a material connection with the greatness of classical antiquity. Well-read and apparently unrecorded second edition of the first Greek-Latin text of Isocrates's 'Orationes tres'. One of the greatest Greek rhetoricians, Isocrates (436-338BC) worked as a writer of judicial speeches and establi … [Click Below for Full Description]
