"The History of Rome, which Livy began at thirty and continued for forty years was composed in 142 books ... [but] of this immense work only thirty-five books are extant ... 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). His history provided the groundwork of almost everything subsequently written on the subject and constituted a textbook … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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]

Rocca, Vicente
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.

THREE RARE WORKS IN ONE SMALL VOLUME.
Various Publishers, Cologne: -1560., 1555. Three works bound in one. 1) pp. [353] Adams 2201; 2) ff. 63, [1]; 3) ff. 155. 24 mo. 120 mm. Attractive contemporary full leather binding over beveled oak boards. Leather worn smooth, though some the old armorial design can be made out. Unusual original twisted metal clasps. Gauphered gilt edges. The first of these works is by St. Augustine (354-430) an early Christian theologian and philosopher from Numidia whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in north Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are 'The City of God'; 'On Christian Doctrine' [included here]; and 'Confessions.' The second title is by St. Vincent of Lerins, who died ca. 445. He was a Gallic monk and author of important early Christian writings. He was probably a proponent of semipelagianism and opposed the Augustine model of grace. The third is by Arnoldus Vesaliensis (Arnold Haldrein), (1484-1534). He was a German Humanist. Here he is joined with Peter Lombard (1096-1160), a scholastic theologian, Bishop of Paris, and author of Four Books of Sentences, which became the standard textbook of theology. Each of these editions are very scarce, and there are only a handful of examples in libraries worldwide. A treasured collection in a wonderful contemporary binding. CHEST 2/1. Hardcover. Very Good.

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]

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.

Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata alla linea marginale, per il resto in eccellente stato di conservazione.

In primo piano, un gruppo riunito di donne, bambini e uomini, alcuni con delle anfore e vasi che contengono la manna divina; sullo sfondo, alcuni uomini sono intenti a raccoglierla, in prossimità dell’accampamento con le tende. Nel cartiglio in alto a sinistra, sono riportati, in lingua latina, i versi dell’Esodo. Al verso, duplice timbro di collezione di Richard Jung (L 3791) Engraving, 1555 circa, Lettered on a stone in the design "Franciscus fflories inu / CB". After Frans Floris.

L'opera si presenta come un compendio di ornitologia ed include un interessante confronto tra gli … [Click Below for Full Description]

E’ questa la principale opera di Olaus Magnus (1490-1558), ancora oggi ritenuta fondamentale per lo studio delle tradizioni, dei costumi e in particolare del modo di vivere (alimentazione, credenze, riti) e delle conoscenze (riguardanti l’agricoltura, l’allevamento, la pesca e la caccia, le tecniche belliche e nautiche, il commercio, ecc.) dei popoli nordici. Questa straordinaria ‘summa’, articolata in brevi capitoli, è completata ed arricchita da un ampio e vivido apparato iconografico. Adams, M140; Graesse IV, 33; Brunet III, 1302.

Martial d'Auvergne
Guilielmum Nigrum ( Guillaume le Noir), 1555. Dernier feuillet de la table restauré avec petit manque de texte. La table s'arrête à Testimonim ce qui nous semble indiquer un manque de feuillet. Superbe exemplaire. Texte français des "Arrêts d'amour", dû à Martial d'Auvergne, intercalé entre les commentaires latins de Benoît Court. Un seul exemplaire à cette date en France à la BNF Bibliothèque nationale de France 8-BL-30701Arsenal - Magasin mais à Paris chez Carolum Angelier. (Pas à la BNF ni aucun exemplaire similaire en France) Très rare Martial de Paris, connu sous le nom de Martial d'Auvergne, né vers 1420 à Paris et mort le 13 mai 1508, est un poète français. D'une famille sans doute originaire d'Auvergne, il fut notaire au Châtelet, et pendant cinquante ans, procureur au Parlement. Son double statut d'homme de loi et de poète le rapproche de Gilles d'Aurigny (mort en 1553) qui a d'ailleurs repris certaines de ces œuvres. Les Arrêts d'amour, plusieurs fois réimprimé, est un livre en prose où sont raillés avec finesse les ridicules de la vie galante.

SCAINO, Antonio
"Trattato" on title within a cartouche of scrollwork, woodcut printer's device on title, six double-page woodcuts (collation as in Mortimer), & another woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. 16 p.l., 315, [3] pp. Small 8vo, 18th-cent. Italian vellum over boards (a bit of browning), spine lettered in gilt. Venice: G. Giolito, 1555. First edition of the earliest work on the game of tennis; this is a fine copy of a most uncommon book. In this work, Scaino not only describes the game but, for the first time, codifies the rules, sets the standard court sizes, discusses proper etiquette, and establishes a scoring system. He uses the terms "a due" and "vantaggio" from which our now familiar terms "deuce" and "advantage" are derived. Tennis was already an extremely popular game in the 16th century, played the kings of England and France. The rules for different versions of the game and their various interpretations often led to arguments. It was apparently after one such discussion with his patron Alfonso II d'Este, the final Duke of Ferrara, that Scaino (1524-1612), decided to write the present book which formalized and detailed the rules of the game. Scaino describes the various forms of tennis which were being played at that time, whether the ball was solid or air-filled, whether the ball was hit with the hand or a racket, etc. The excellent plates depict equipment and the layout of courts. Fine copy. Duplicate stamp of the Biblioteca Vittore Emanuele and the bookplate of Donald and Mary Hyde. Preserved in a black morocco-backed slipcase. ❧ Brunet V, 178 & Suppl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Un des textes fondateurs de l'ornithologie moderne "One of the first ornithological texts of its time to be based on direct observation and illustrated with original drawings" (Norman) Importante édition originale d'un des textes fondateurs de l'ornithologie moderne qui repose pour la première fois sur les dissections et observations personnelles de l'auteur. "Belon described approximately 230 species (including the bat), most of them European, but including some foreign species observed from his sojourns in Asia Minor and Egypt' (Norman). Though much of this work is based on Aristotle and Pliny, Belon provided many novel observations as to the appearance, habits and distribution of birds. In addition, he made an important and original contribution to comparative anatomy by comparing in detail the skeletons of birds and man and showing them to be fundamentally identical in structure."
