Beuter, Pere Antoni.
In Vinegia: appresso Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari Small 8vo (15.5 cm; 6.125"). [38] ff., 533, [3] pp., map.. 1556 A translation of the author's Primera part de la Història de València, the first edition of which appeared in 1538, written in the Valencian dialect of Catalan. Beuter (ca. 1490–1554), of German origin, was born in Valencia, educated at the university there, and had a successful career as a historian, university professor, and preacher. The work at hand was a widely read and respected history of the founding and history of Valencia, and Spain, through the 11th century, with the last chapters having much to say about => El Cid. The translation is the work of Alfonso de Ulloa, who translated a number of important Spanish texts into Italian. Gabriel Giolito, the most prolific printer in Italy during the 16th century, printed about 850 books from the date of founding his press in 1539 to his death in 1578; he exercised great influence on his contemporaries and successors in the form and decoration of books. This work is printed in his italic type, has a woodcut printer's device on title-page and a different one on the verso of final leaf, woodcut head- and tail-pieces, and decorative and historiated woodcut initials. The preliminary matter contains => a double-page woodcut map of Spain. A curious aspect of the text is the claim that Spaniards fleeing the Moorish invasion settled in America in the Yucatan! => What a fable!

Marque au titre de l'imprimeur Gilles Richeboys qui signe ici son premier ouvrage ; marque typographique (chiffre) au verso du feuillet m.iv. Edition originale de la coutume de Sens refondue par Christophe de Thou. Les lettres patentes du 17 aot 1555 nous apprennent que le procs-verbal des anciennes coutumes de Sens avait t perdu et adir, de sorte qu'il n'y avait aucun moyen de constater d'une manire authentique les articles de ces coutumes qui avaient t accords ou discords par les tats lors de leur publication, et de rsoudre les autres difficults que l'interprtation de ces coutumes pouvait faire natre. On avait donc t contraint, comme par le pass, de vrifier les articles de coutumes par turbes de tmoins, ce qui avait fait continuer tous les abus et inconvnients auxquels la rdaction des coutumes et leur conversion en lois devaient porter remde. Ces lettres patentes chargeaient en consquence le prsident de Thou, le conseiller au parlement Barthlemy Faye et l'avocat du roi Gilles Bourdin, de procder une nouvelle rdaction et publication des coutumes de Sens, ce qui eut lieu, en effet, au mois de novembre de cette mme anne.

Internally clean and bright. Very good. The first Italian edition of one of the most important early chronicles of the Spanish conquest of the New World, and one of the two chief accounts of Cortes' conquest of Mexico, the other being provided by Bernal Diaz.

The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. Dedicated to Cosmo de Medici, this edition is enhanced by two woodcuts, the first of what appears to represent a buffalo, and the second being an elaborate printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. A rare account of the Mexican conquest. WAGNER SPANISH SOUTHWEST 2N. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 556/22. SABIN 27736. MEDINA BHA 159N.

A couple of encyclopaedic law works came from his pen. At the end of his life, he curated and annotated a new edition of the Milanese statutes. His Memoralia scholarly illustrated the complexity of Latin legal terminology, relying on a vast number of juridical sources, from ancient authors and Justinian’s Digest to his living colleagues.

'Petrus Hispanus, elected Pope in 1276 under the name of John XXI, is the only physician so far to have attained the papacy. His Thesaurus pauperum, a practical compendium of medical remedies, was among the most popular textbooks of its kind up to the sixteenth century; it went through numerous editions after its first printing in 1476 and was translated into Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, English and Hebrew. Because of his great knowledge, Petrus Hispanus was thought by some to have sold his soul to the devil - who, it was believed, called in the debt by engineering Petrus's tragic death under the collapsed ceiling of his palace at Viterbo eight months after he assumed the papacy. However, Dante mentioned Petrus in the twelfth canto of his Paradiso as the only contemporary pope he met in Paradise' (Norman catalogue p 428).Provenance: Haskell Norman, with his bookplateSTC 14652; Durling 2597; Garrison and Morton 1960; Norman 1174 (this copy); Waller 7340; Wellcome 4956
