LIVIUS TITO.
Apid Paulum Manutium. Due parti in un volume in-folio (cm. 34,5), cc. (8) 478; 98 (40). Marchio tipografico con ancora aldina ad entrambi i frontespizi e belle iniziali istoriate. Solida legatura settecentesca in piena pergamena rigida, dorso a piccoli nervi con titoli in oro su tassello. Solo qualche carta un po' arrossata, peraltro esemplare genuino e marginoso, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Prima edizione aldina, elegantemente impressa di questo classico di storia romana. Cfr. Renouard (p. 166): "Belle édition, bien imprimée, sur beau papier, et peut-étre de toutes celles de cet historien, la plus amie de l'oeil et la plus facile à lire. Les suivantes, donnes par les Alde... sont en plus petits caractéres... Celle-ci de 1555 est fort rare, et ne se trouve presque jamai qu'en très mauvaise condition..."; Brunet (III 1106): "Pour la beauté des caractères autant que pour celle de tirage et du papier, cette edition est bien préférable aux différentes réimpressions plus ou moins mesquines qu'en ont données les Alde... elle est d'ailleurs devenue rare, surtout en bonne conservation.".

Belon, Pierre.
Paris, (Benoist Prévost for Gilles Corozet and) Guillaume Cavellat, 1555. 4to. 3 parts in 1 volume. (12), 212, (1) ff. 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. The naturalist Pierre Belon (c. 1518-64), famous for his works on ornithology, was attached to the French embassy to the Ottoman Empire, led by Gabriel de Luetz (Luez, Luels) d'Aramont, who aimed at convincing Suleiman the Magnificent to join forces against Charles V. 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 again to Turkey. - Unlike many contemporary travel writers, Belon does not elaborate on extraordinary adventures, but rather limits himself to detailed observations on mammals … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cette chronique, rédigée en latin par l'historien italien Paolo Giovio (1483-1552) raconte, dans un style recherché, les événements survenus entre 1494 et 1547, avec des détails intéressants sur les guerres d'Italie, les relations diplomatiques entre la France et l'Italie ou encore les guerres menées par les Vénitiens c … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRATAROLI (Guglielmo)
Lyon, Eustace Barricat, 1555. 1 vol. in-16, veau blond glacé, dos à nerfs orné de doubles filets dorés, pièce de titre et date en veau rouge, encadrement d'un triple filet doré sur les plats, filet doré sur les coupes, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées. Reliure du XIXe siècle. Bel exemplaire. (8) ff., 223 pp. Signatures : *8 [A-O]8. Petits raccommodages au f. de titre et au dernier f. Edition originale de la traduction française du De memoria reparanda, l'un des premiers traités complets sur la mnémonique publiés à la Renaissance. la science de la mémoire avait déjà été étudiée dans l'antiquité (entre autres par Simonide), mais l'ouvrage de Grataroli fait un point plus approfondi sur le sujet, propose des remèdes médicaux aux mémoires défaillantes, des conseils d'hygiène alimentaire pour la conserver et des moyens techniques pour accroître la mémoire artificielle. Publié en latin à Zürich en 1553, il fut aussitôt traduit en français et en anglais et fut réimprimé plusieurs fois. La seconde partie de l'ouvrage concerne plutôt la physionomie et propose la prédiction des caractères humains par l'observation de diverses parties du corps. C'est la traduction d'un autre ouvrage de Grataroli, paru en 1554, le De praedictione morum. Grataroli, médecin né à Bergame en 1516, fut l'un des auteurs les plus singuliers de son temps. Proche de Pomponazzi qu'il avait fréquenté à l'Université de Padoue, de Zanchi et de Théodore de Bèze, on l'a suspecté d'avoir embrassé la Réforme. Il a écrit des traités fort curieux sur un grand nombre de sujets originaux, mais son approche médicale est … [Click Below for Full Description]

ALFONSO X, Rey de Castilla.

(1f.blanc) + 112ff. chiffrés. + 116ff. chiffrés. + 102ff. chiffrés. + 20ff. 31ff. + 68ff. 8ff. 237ff. Plein veau brun, dos à nerfs ornés (reliure espagnole du 18e siècle). 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.

GESNER, Conrad; pseud.:) EUONYMUS PHILIATER.
- Zürich, A. u. J. Gessner, 1555. 4to. 4 Bl., 390 S., 9 Bl. (davon das 1. weiß). Mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titel u. 37 kl. Textholzschnitten. Neuer Halbpergamentband unter Verwendung alten Materials. Erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Conrad Gesner (1516-65) war zugleich Philologe, Mediziner, Botaniker und Zoologe und in all diesen Fächern hat er Hervorragendes geleistet. "There is no more notable man in the history of learning and of science in the 16th century than Gesner" (Ferguson). Als ausgezeichneter Kenner der Arzneimittellehre der Alten war er bemüht, neben den durch Paracelsus empfohlenen metallischen Arzneimitteln die pflanzlichen wieder mehr in Aufnahme zu bringen. Er scheute sich auch nicht, die Wirkung neuer Mittel, auch giftiger, an sich selbst zu erproben. "In seinem äußerst beliebten 'Arzneischatz' wusste er auf galenischer Grundlage viele neue Ratschläge zu erteilen" (Fueter in NDB VI, 345; vgl. Hirsch/Hüb. II, 732). "The book is interesting as a record of the Chemistry known by Gesner, the greatest naturalist, polyhistor and bibliographer of his time . It gives an account of plants to be destilled, of furnaces and other apparatus, and the methods of getting the virtues out of plants, animals, and minerals, and their uses in effecting cures. It evinces considerable knowledge of practical pharmaceutical chemistry as than practised" (Ferguson). Die Abbildungen zeigen chemische Geräte wie Destillationskolben und -öfen. - Durling 2084; Ferchl 182; Schoene, Gesch. d.

Nicolas de Grouchy, sieur de la Rivière, né à Rouen ou dans les environs vers l'année 1509, mort en 1572 à La Rochelle, était le second fils de Jean de Grouchy, écuyer, fils de Colard de Grouchy, seigneur de La Cauchie et panetier du duc de Guyenne. Il commença ses études à Rouen, puis les compléta au collège Sainte-Barbe à Paris, où il devint, au bout de peu de temps, professeur. Il s'y lia avec plusieurs savants portugais qui y professaient comme lui. L'un d'eux, André de Gouvéa (Andreus Goveanus), appelé à Bordeaux pour y prendre la direction du collège de Guyenne, l'emmena avec lui pour y être un des régents ou professeurs du collège et participer à sa réorganisation. André de Gouvea fut principal pendant treize ans, de 1534 à 1547, et pendant le même temps, Nicolas de Grouchy fut maître de dialectique. Tous deux eurent Montaigne pour élève et leurs deux noms se trouvent mentionnés dans un chapitre des Essais (I, XXVI). Grouchy fut un des "précepteurs domestiques" de Montaigne qui écrit : "quant à moy, j'avoy plus de six ans, avant que j'entendisse non plus de françois ou de perigordin, que d'arabesque...

Small marginal tear to l. D4 with no damage to the text, title page slightly soiled, a nice copy printed on a fine, crispy paper.A beautiful copy, complete with all the eight plates, of the extremely rare first edition, first issue, of one of the most influential music theory books of the sixteenth century. The book is dedicated to Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este.Unlike most early theorists, Vicentino, who was a pupil of the Flemish-Venetian composer Adrian Willaert, did not simply summarize the practice of his time, but also attempted to adapt the Greek musical modes to the purpose of modern harmonic singing and instrumental performance. His major contribution is the adaptation of the ancient Greek chromatic and enharmonic genera to modern polyphonic practice. Anticipating Vincenzo Galilei and Claudio Monteverdi, Vicentino also expressed avant-garde's views on the relation between music and text. He stated that, in order to better express the feelings of a verbal text, music should be sometimes allowed to break the strict rules of counterpoint."This treatise i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Michele Grechi LUCCHESI
1555 - "Bulino, 1550 circa, privo di dati editoriali, impresso su un foglio di carta vergata coeva, ampi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Della serie "Prospettive et Antichità di Roma". Dedicata al cardinale Guido Ascanio Sforza, la serie è il risultato di una raccolta di disegni fatta dall'autore. Il numero di tavole che compone l'opera varia, a seconda dei diversi esemplari, da un minimo di venti ad un massimo di quarantasette. Le prime venti tavole che seguono il frontespizio, senza data, e la dedica rappresentano architetture immaginarie composte da archi, portici classicheggianti, spesso con pavimentazione quadrettata. In alcuni casi, le scene sono arricchite da piccoli personaggi. Queste vedute fantastiche non sono creazioni orginali di Michele Lucchese ma si basano sulla serie Vue d'optique, pubblicata nel 1551 ad Orléan dall'architetto e incisore Androuet du Cerceau. Rispetto al modello francese, il Lucchese apporta una serie di rilevanti modifiche, a cominciare dal formato che da circolare diventa rettangolare. Circa la datazione della serie del Lucchese, un sicuro terminus post quem è il 1551, anno della pubblicazione delle Vues d'Optique. M. Bury data, invece, la serie al 1563-64 Probabilmente le prime 20 tavole furono realizzate tra il 1554 e il 1557, poiché nella dedica al cardinale Sforza l'autore fa riferimento a "la superba fabrica ch'ella fa hora". Si tratterebbe del palazzo Sforza di Proceno, unico edificio che il cardinale abbia fatto costruire e i cui lavori furono avviati nel 1554, mentre nel 1557 una parte dell'edificio risultava abitabile.

BELON du MANS, Pierre.
Paris, Guillaume Cavellat, 1555. First edition. Cavellat issue. 7 parts in one volume, Folio (34 x 22 cm). xxviii, 382 pp., Hand-coloured woodcut printer's device on title and six sectional titles, woodcut portrait of Belon on title verso, two woodcuts of human and bird skeletons and 158 large woodcuts in text of birds by Pierre Gourdelle and others, numerous 11-line and smaller ornamental woodcut initials and head-pieces, light soiling to title, with 17th century ownership inscription to head, occasional trivial foxing and old staining, nineteenth century vellum, edges stained red, overall a fine clean copy with excellent contemporary hand-colour. A beautiful copy of the rare first edition. One of the first ornithological texts based on direct observation and illustrated from original drawings. "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. "Belon was born in Le Mans, France, and studied medicine in Paris. In 1540 he went to Germany to study botany, becoming a leading figure in the sixteenth-century revival of natural history that followed the great voyages, the invention of printing, and the n … [Click Below for Full Description]
