Contemporary Vellum, Folio (Unique and fine set of ''All the Works''. Chrysosthomos, c. 347-407, Greek, Archbishop of Constantinople, was an important Early Church Father. He is known for his eloquence in preaching and public speaking, his denunciation of abuse of authority by both ecclesiastical and political leaders, the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and his ascetic sensibilities. After his death in 407 (or, according to some sources, during his life) he was given the Greek surname chrysostomos, meaning ""golden mouthed"", in English and Anglicized to Chrysostom. Eastern Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church as a saint and as a Doctor of the Church. Churches of the Western tradition, including the Roman Catholic Church, some Anglican provinces, and parts of the Lutheran Church, commemorate him on 13 September. Some Lutheran and many Anglican provinces commemorate him on the traditional Eastern feast day of 27 January. The Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria also recognizes John Chrysostom as a saint with feast days on 16 Thout and 17 Hathor.)".

Of the elder Aelian, Gessner took from the 1487 Rome edition by Silber (Franck); of the latter Aelian, author of the Tactica, Gessner took the 1552 Editio Princeps of Robortellus. - Dibdin <br><br> During this time, Gessner was in the midst of his great zoological ork, Historiae Animalium, an encyclopedia of animals bridging the ancients, such as Aristotle and Pliny with modern science. In his 1556 edition of Claudius Aelianus, he combined real and fictional creatures in the anecdotes of Aelianâ&#128;&#153;s De Natura Animalium. <br><br> Aelianus Taciticus treatise on the Roman Art of War was, in spite of its academic nature, regarded with the highest value and merit to the army organizers of the 16th century, who were engaged in fashioning a regular military system out of the semi-feudal systems of previous generations. The Macedonian phalanx of Aelian had many points of resemblance to the solid masses of pikemen and the squadrons of cavalry of the Spanish and Dutch systems, and the translations made in the 16th century formed the groundwork of numerous books on drill and tactics. This work alone had great importance to the Military Revolution of 1560â&#128;&#147;1660 by the Dutch and Swedes, as reference in a letter by William Louis, Count of Nassau-Dillenburg on December 8, 1594. The letter is influential in supporting the thesis of the early-modern Military Revolution. In the letter William Louis discusses the use of ranks by soldiers of Imperial Rome as discussed in Aelian&#39;s Tactica. Aelian was discussing the use of the counter march in the context of the Roman sword gladius and spear pilum. William Louis in a &#39;crucial leap&#39; realized that the same technique could work for men with firearms. â&#128;&#147; Military Revolutions, Past and Present by Geoffrey Parker in Recent Themes in Military History.

        De Prisca Celtopaedia libri quinque.

      Ex typographia Matthaei Davidis, Paris 1556 - First Edition. 4to. pp. [12], 250, 14. Title page with woodcut printer&#146;s device. Text printed italic font with sectional decorative initials. Interior pages are generally clean. A miniscule marginal tear is neatly sealed on the title page. A small pair of initials are lightly written in an old hand on the verso of the title. Bound in modern full calf with panels in blind after an early period style. Jean Picard&#146;s "De Prisca Celtopaedia" discusses the development of language, arts and science in ancient Gaul. The author uses place names, ancient sources and epigraphic evidence to argue that the Greek language had originated in Gaul and that the Gallic Druids and Bards were developing philosophy, science and poetry long before other cultures. Picard claims that the Greek language was first brought to Greece by the Gauls as they travelled through those lands on the way to found new settlements in Asia Minor (i.e. Galatia) [paraphrased from Le Long, Bib. Hist. I, 3797]. The work contains much discussion of Druids and other lore. [Adams P1088; Shaaber, p. 406; Brunet IV, 30; Graesse V, p. 280; Black, Druids, p. 13; Le Long, "Bib.

        Sectio Secunda Elucidationis in Omnes Psalmos iuxta veritatem vulgatae et ecclesiae usitatae latinae editiones

      Lugduni : apud Gulielmum Rovillium, 1556. 4to. menor; 14 hs., 751 pp., 118 pp. Encuadernación fatigada, en pergamino de la época. El gran teólogo y filósofo franciscano flamenco trata al final de esta Segunda Parte de sus Comentarios a los Salmos, de las anotaciones a las versiones hebreas y caldeas. Está considerado como el mejor comentarista de esta parte de la Biblia, y la lectura de los Salmos, que él había dedicado a Carlos V, era recomendada en los ?'ars moriendi' de la época como la mejor manera de acercarse a Dios en tal trance. Tittelmans tuvo, entre 1527 y 1530 una sonada controversia con Erasmo sobre exégesis paulina y entre otros apelativos le llamó «juvenis gerontodidascalus». Tittelmans aparece mencionado en la «Arcadia» de Lope de Vega.

Marca tipográfica en portada, cabeceras y capitulares xilográficas. Enc. en piel gofrada, ruedas doradas en ambos planos. Cajo parcialmente sesgado. Portada levemente deslucida. Anotaciones manuscritas antiguas en los márgenes, algunas son glosas en francés. Ex-libris de anterior poseedor. * Edición veneciana de la obra magna de Pedro Antonio Beuter (1522-1554), primer cronista del reino de Valencia. Beuter se considera, entre otros, el creador de la leyenda de las cuatro barras para el escudo de Cataluña, pues adaptó la leyenda de la toma de Córdoba en 1236 y estableció una nueva tradición. Su obra obtuvo una enorme difusión, como lo demuestra el hecho de que se editara en Venecia apenas diez años después de que la primera parte española viera la luz. Beuter ofrece valiosos testimonios, como la que se considera la cita más antigua sobre yacimientos arqueológicos españoles referente a una tumba eneolítica en la Cartuja de las Fuentes. Asimismo, reinterpreta algunas leyendas e instaura otras nuevas, como la de Blasco de Alagón y la conquista de Morella. En relación a ésta cabe destacar que la versión de Beuter presenta la particularidad de reseñar la procedencia de la misma, pues el autor afirma que dio con la narración en los archivos del castillo de Morella.

      In Aedibus Rouillij, Via Iacobaea, Sub Signo Concordiae, Paris 1556 - four volumes bound in two, much-worn half-leather, probably 19th century rebinding. Volume one is second edition of 1566, place of publication given as 'Parisiis'; volumes 2 and 4 are first editions dated Lutetiae 1565, title page of volume 3 is missing, so edition unknown. The text has been disbound at some period, resulting in creasing and marginal damage to title page of volume 1, and to final few leaves of index in volume 2. Old dampstains are evident in foredge area in parts of volumes 1 and 2. However, there is no loss of text, apart from title page of volume 3, and the binding is now sound and tight. All volumes contain frequent scholarly marginalia in a neat hand, in Latin and Greek. The handwriting of these notes does not correspond to any of the names of previous owners signed on the outer leaves. The latest owner was 'Tomas O Ceallaigh', signature dated 1942. An earlier owner seems to have been Henry Hare (? - surname is blotted out), dated 1698. Photos and further information on inquiry. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memorabilium Gaudentii Merulae

      Lyons: Macé Bonhomme,, 1556. Novariensis ultra primam editionem et recognitum ... cum emendatione et scholiis Pomponii Castalli Olivetani. Octavo (167 × 103 mm). Later brown morocco to 16th-century style, plain raised bands, spine gilt-lettered in second compartment, old gilt edges. 5 woodcut figures in the text. Contemporary ownership inscription at head of title, contemporary Latin marginalia to title verso and extensively to the last leaf blank verso, underlining and marginalia elsewhere, the brown ink occasionally having spread, manuscript diagram to blank A6 verso. A very good copy. First edition published in France, the third and most extensive overall. Gaudenzio Merula (1500-1555) was born of a humble family in Borgolavezzaro, near Novara. He held teaching appointments in Milan, at the Academy in Novara, and subsequently at Vigevano and Turin. In 1554 he was charged with Protestant heresy, first before the bishop of Novara and subsequently in Milan. "His Memorabilia, printed at his native town in 1546, then at Venice in 1550, and at Lyons in 1556 in an enlarged edition, contain some alchemy as well as astrology, natural philosophy, history and theology" (Lynn Thorndike, History of Magic and Experimental Science, pt. 9, p. 547). The book was prohibited until purged of anticlerical passages, but he was cleared of the other charges of heresy, only to fall ill and die shortly after the termination of his second trial. Pages 417 and 418 contain a short notice of the "insulae Americae." The book is rare in commerce, with no copy at auction since 1951.

      Antwerp Johannes de Laet 1556 - First Edition of the Latin translation of this seminal book by Hasan ben Muhamed el-Wazzan-ez-Zayyati (1485-1552), known by his Latin name Johannes Leo Africanus. . Engraved title-page with the vignette and woodcut initials. 8vo, Late 17th or early 18th century French polished calf, the covers with single fillet line at the borders, elaborately decorated in gilt on the spine within compartments separated by double gilt fillet lines, redmorocco lettering label gilt, period marbled endleaves, edges stained red, armorial bookplate. 332 pp. A very fine copy, text very bright and clean, a touch of very occasional toning, hinges strong and sound, the binding in very pleasing and well preserved condition. VERY IMPORTANT AND RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE PRIZED LATIN TRANSLATION OF THE FIRST GREAT WORK ON AFRICA. During the years 1511-1517 Leo Africanus traveled to Fez, Morocco, Tunis, and across the Sahara Desert to Timbuktu. He visited the native sates on the Upper Niger to Kario, Houssa, Bornou and Lake Chad. He also made a voyage to Constantinople and Egypt and then crossed the Red Sea to Arabia. He was subsequently captured by the Venetians and presented to Pope Leo X whose name Leo he adopted as his surname. The Pope persuaded him to translate the Arabian manuscript account of his travels into Italian. The account was then translated by Floreanu into Latin. This is generally considered to be the first book published in Europe by a person of primarily African descent. The book was considered the most important on the geography of Africa and an especially important source for all information on the continent. The book was printed in a multitude of languages over hundreds of years after the first Italian and Latin editions were issued. The English translation did not appear until 1600. Until the great European voyages and explorations into Africa in the 1600&#146;s and 1700&#146;s, Leo Africanus&#146; work was considered the primary source for all studies on the Sudan and even of Africa. First edition copies in condition such as this are very rare on the open market. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rare first edition of the Tractatus de erigendis figures coeli, documenting Copernican influence on 16th-century astronomical literature, with two ex dono dedications to the Wittenberg mathematician and physician Jacob Milich, (see below)¿indicating that Milich, whose numerous collaborations with Melanchthon are already well-documented, was a here-to-fore unknown of the Wittenberg Circle, the informal group of Copernicans centered around Rheticus and Reinhold. The present work is essentially astrological, dealing chiefly with the casting of horoscopes. It thereby reflects, however, the mathematical rigor that 16th C astronomers applied to astrological prediction: Garcaeus insists upon an accurate astronomical basis for such predictions, citing Copernicus more than twenty times and drawing upon Copernicus¿s calculations to get celestial positions of the planets. The second Tractatus, an extremely rare astronomical text published the same year by another Wittenberg publisher, also includes references to Copernicus. Such references are clear evidence that only 13 years after the publication of De Revolutionibus, Copernicus was well-known and esteemed as a mathematician and astronomer, and his name was appearing frequently in print. Both works are dedicated by Garcaeus to Jacob Milich (1501-1559), the astronomer, physician, and professor of mathematics at Wittenberg from at least 1535, where he presided as Dean of Arts during a public ¿Oratio de dignitate astrologiae,¿ written by himself or possibly Melanchthon. Milich evidently taught at the university from 1535 onward (placing him in Wittenberg during the first printing of De rev in 1543), and ¿seems to have been such a close collaborator in Melanchthon¿s cause that even his contemporaries mistook Milich¿s commentary on the second book of [Pliny] . . . as a work by Melanchthon¿ (Kusukawa). Indeed, Garcaeus¿ respect for the physician¿s learning is such that, among the genitures of ¿learned men¿ printed in his Astrologiae methodus (Basel 1576), Milich¿s geniture is given prior to those of Copernicus, Camerarius, Erasmus and even Melanchthon himself¿prior to every contemporary, in fact, but Reinhold, who authored the third work in the present volume. Among Milich¿s medical works, Thorndike also records orations on the lives of Galen and Avicenna, and anatomical and cardiac treatises printed among Melanchthon¿s Declamationes (1558). Milich is also the namesake of the lunar crater Milichius. Johannes Garcaeus (1530-1575) was a German astronomer, mathematician, meteorologist and astrologer who studied at Wittenberg. The works of Erasmus Reinhold, professor of Mathematics at Wittenberg, also promoted Copernicanism. This first [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Universale Della Parte Del Mondo . . .

      Venice 1556 - Mended centerfold splits, lightly toned along fold, overall very good condition. The rare first state of an important and in some ways groundbreaking map. The woodblock for this map was destroyed shortly after its publication in a fire in November of 1557, hence its rarity. The map was compiled by the great Venetian cartographer, Giacomo Gastaldi, and appeared in a three-volume collection of voyage and travel accounts that was by far the most extensive, early compilation of this kind relating to the New World. In its overall delineation of North America, the map is a great improvement over Munster¿s 1540 Americas map in its general depiction of both North and South America. Yet ¿La Florida¿ is the only place name in what is now the United States, aside from the mythical cities of the Southwest. There are several tantalizing inlets along the eastern seaboard of the United States, which have given rise to much speculation as to their identity. When he prepared this map, Gastaldi clearly had the benefit of the travel accounts included in Ramusio¿s compendium. For example, this work was one of the first to contain a printed account of Coronado¿s explorations in the Southwest, hence ¿this is the first printed American map to include any of the names from the travels of Francisco Vasquez de Coronado of 1540-42¿ (Burden). It was also the first map to show the Sierra Nevada mountain range and ¿Quivira,¿ one of the fabled cities that spurred the expeditions of Coronado and others. The map has a surprisingly good depiction of lower California and the Gulf of California. It visually hedges the question of whether America and Asia are connected. Burden 24.

        Britannia insula quae duo regna continent Angliam et Scotiam cum Hibernia adiacente ("The British Isles, comprising two kingdoms, England and Scotland, with Ireland adjacent")

      Rome, 1556. THE FIRST COPPER-PLATE MAP OF THE BRITISH ISLES BASED ON CONTEMPORARY KNOWLEDGE Copperplate engraving: 193/8" x 137/8" trimmed with original extended margins References: R.V. Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), n. 269; Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 163; Rodney W. Shirley, Early Printed Maps of the British Isles: A Bibliography 1477-1650 (Somerset, England, 1980), n. 60. George Lily, a religious exile from England living in Rome, was the author of the earliest separately published map to show the British Isles as a whole. Lily&#39;s map, first issued in Rome in 1546, derived the shape of England and Wales from Sebastian Münster&#39;s map of 1540 and also perhaps from a manuscript produced around 1535 known as the Cotton map, which is now in the British Library. Lily, however, included many more place names and topographical features than either model. Rodney Shirley, the great authority on maps of Great Britain, wrote that "the Lily map is one of the finest engravings of the first part of the 16th century and rightly deserves the accord which has been given to it. There are several earlier versions of the British Isles in Ptolemaic atlases but none of these approaches the Lily map in originality, clarity, or elegance." Lily was an English Catholic who, as part of the entourage of Reginald Cardinal Pole, was banished from England in 1543 during the aftermath of Henry VIII&#39;s split with the papacy. Lily established himself in Rome, working as an editor of maps in collaboration with the prominent publisher Michele Tramezzini. Lily signed his work with a monogrammed &#39;GLA&#39; (Georgius Lilius Anglus). "Britanniae Insulae," although unsigned, may also have been engraved by Beatrizet, and was probably published by Tramezzini. Lily&#39;s original issue of 1546 is of great rarity. The present map is a fine example of the second issue, published a decade later and also quite scarce. It is true to the original, although the British Isles are oriented with north at top (in contrast to the 1546 orientation with north at left), in the more familiar configuration that has become standard in modern times. The depiction of Great Britain is geographically advanced, while Ireland is represented with noticeably less definition. The identity of the publisher and engraver is unknown, and the appearance of the creator&#39;s mark, I.H.S., at the lower right corner, is the only clue as to its author. This example of the rare second issue of Lily&#39;s map is in very good condition and represents an exceptionally important work in the early history of British Isles cartography.. Book.

      Woodcut printer&#39;s device on title & on verso of last leaf, two folding woodcut plates (the second just shaved at head), & about 270 splendid woodcuts (many full-page) in the text. 6 p.l. (sixth leaf blank), 502 pp., 37 leaves. Folio (324 x 223 mm.), fine 18th-cent. green sheep & blue paste-paper boards (some minor foxing & browning), spine decorated in gilt, orange leather lettering piece on spine. Basel: [H. Froben & N. Episcopius], 1556. First edition, and a fine, crisp, and large copy of "the first systematic treatise on mining and metallurgy and one of the first technological books of modern times...The De Re Metallica embraces everything connected with the mining industry and metallurgical processes, including administration, prospecting, the duties of officials and companies and the manufacture of glass, sulphur and alum. The magnificent series of two hundred and seventy-three large woodcut illustrations by Hans Rudolf Manuel Deutsch add to its value. Some of the most important sections are those on mechanical engineering and the use of water-power, hauling, pumps, ventilation, blowing of furnaces, transport of ores, etc., showing a very elaborate technique."-Printing & the Mind of Man 79. Agricola mentions a large number of minerals, many for the first time, and describes and illustrates numerous mining and metallurgical processes, many of which are still in use. The separate parts of the machinery are shown. Book V contains Agricola&#39;s important contribution to physical geology; he recognized the influence of water and wind on the shaping of the landscape and gave a clear account of the order of the strata he saw in the mines. Writing on the origin of mountains, he describes the eroding action of water as their cause with a perspicacity much in advance of his time. The famous woodcuts depict various mining and metallurgical machinery, men at work, and the first illustration of a railway (p. 276 -- trucks containing ore on wooden rails). A pleasing copy in a most attractive 18th-century binding. From the library of Marchese Massimiliano Spinola, Castello Spinola. Bookplates of Dr. Piergiorgio Borio. &#10087; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 88. D.S.B., I, pp. 77-79. Hoover 17. Horblit 2b. Partington, II, pp. 46-55. Sparrow, Milestones of Science, p. 8 & pl. 26. .

In-folio de (6) ff., 288 pp. et (6) ff. d&#146;index. Vélin souple, titre calligraphié au dos, quelques éclats au dos, mouillure marginale. Reliure de l&#146;époque. 300 X 208 mm. PREMIERE TRADUCTION LATINE DU célèbre « Banquet des Savants » d&#146;Athénée, « encyclopédie riche et variée de l&#146;antiquité et véritable traité de gastronomie ». La première édition de cet ouvrage parut en grec à Venise, chez Alde, en 1514. Vicaire, 50-52 ; Adams, A 2098 ; Oberlé, p.21 ; K. Mengis, Die scriffistellerische Technik im Sophistenmahl des Athenaios, Paderborn, 1920 ; Ch. B. Gulick, Athenaeus, « The Deipnosophists », London, Cambridge (Mass.), 1927-1941. « Les digressions auxquelles se livrent les convives font passer sous nos yeux toute la société antique » (G. Oberlé). « Ce Banquet doit prendre place dans une bibliothèque gourmande. Athénée y traite en effet d&#146;une quantité de sujets relatifs à la gastronomie. Les noms des gourmands les plus fameux, des cuisiniers célèbres y sont cités; les vertus et qualités des légumes, poissons et animaux font le sujet de longues dissertations ainsi que les vins, les usages admis dans les repas et fêtes épulaires. » (Vicaire). L&#146;auteur nous a laissé cet important ouvrage qui est un trésor d&#146;érudition. Sa compilation est d&#146;autant plus précieuse que la plupart des ouvrages qu&#146;il cite sont perdus. C&#146;est une encyclopédie de l&#146;Antiquité, riche, variée, éblouissante. &#8195; « D&#146;une manière générale, il s&#146;agit d&#146;une mine précieuse pour la connaissance d&#146;une sphère culturelle et sociale qui joue un rôle fondamental dans la civilisation grecque : celle du plaisir, qu&#146;il s&#146;agisse des plaisirs de la table, du vin, de l&#146;éros, de la musique ou encore de l&#146;entretien symposiaque, avec ses genres poétiques, ses modes et règles de l&#146;échange verbal, sa conception hédoniste de la culture et de l&#146;érudition». (A.Lukinovich). Rabelais, dans Pantagruel et Gargantua cite Athénée et va s&#146;inspirer du Dipnosophistarum dans la rédaction de ses « banquets burlesques ». « La liberté de la parodie, la volubilité des convives, l&#146;inventivité de leur parole sont des lieux communs du banquet rabelaisien. Les mangeurs sont des parleurs et ces parleurs sont des philologues amoureux de la langue qui se rassasient de mots autant que de mets. Les savants à table dans Athénée s&#146;intéressent aux verba ; leur boulimie de connaissances s&#146;accompagne d&#146;une active curiosité philologique. » (M. Jeanneret). PRECIEUX ET BEL EXEMPLAIRE CONSERVE DANS SON VELIN SOUPLE DE L&#146;EPOQUE. L&#146;OUVRAGE A ETE LU, SOULIGNE ET COMMENTE PAR UN ERUDIT. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Ein sendbrieff An die vollen Brüder in Teütschem Lande, geschriben.

      [Augsburg, Hans Gegler], 1556.. 23 Bl., 1 weißes Bl. 4° (20 x 15 cm). Moderne Pappe.. Erstmals 1555 veröffentlichte Philippika gegen die Trunksucht, später auch den zahlreichen Ausgaben von Friderichs "Wider den Sauffteufel" beigegeben. Seltener Druck des Augsburger Winkeldruckers Hans Gegler, der Saufteufel zählt zu den schönsten Beispielen der sogenannten Teufelsliteratur des 16. Jahrhunderts. - Der lutherische Theologe Friderich aus Görlitz (um 1510-1559) predigt aus eigener Erfahrung gegen den Saufteufel "als der ich vor zeyten auch im gedienet". Mit geschickter Rhetorik und in direkter Sprache wird Alltäglichkeit und Verbreitung des Lasters angeprangert: "Ich sehe auch, wie das sauffen bey uns Teütschen so gar uber hand genom(m)en hat, Also, das es gantz schwärlich, ja gleich unmüglich scheinet, das solch Laster solte bey uns gantz außgereüttet künden werden. Denn es wirt yetzund von wenigen für ain Laster, ja vil mehr für eytel Tugendt geachtet [...] So braucht man auch nicht mehr gebürlich un(d) gewöhnliche Trinckgefäß, sondern auß schüsseln, Töpffeln, Saltzfessern, Käßnepffen, Becken, handbecke(n), Handfässern, fischpfan(n)en, Kacheln. Item auß Hüten, Schühen, un(d) so noch was ergers ist, saufft man yetzund ainander zü. Und ich achte, so es noch lenger stehn soll, So werden sy ainander auß Säwtrögen züsauffen" (Bl. A2 verso und A3 recto). Anschließend wird unter Berufung auf biblische und antike Autoritäten zur Umkehr aufgerufen. - Gering gebräunt, vereinzelt minimal fleckig. *VD 16 F 2757. British Museum, German Books, 321. Hayn/Gotendorf II, 442. Simon, Bibliotheca Bacchica II, 313.
