[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.

MONTAÑA DE MONSERATTE, Bernadino.
First edition, and a very fine copy, of the first separate, and first illustrated, anatomical work in the vernacular printed in Spain. "While Valverde di Hamusco's <i>Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano</i> (1556) is often credited with introducing into Spain the Vesalian anatomical iconography coupled with a vernacular text, this honor actually belongs to Montaña de Monserrate's <i>Anothomia</i>... Montaña's <i>Anathomia</i> represents the first separate anatomical work in the vernacular printed in Spain, as Lobera de Avila's unillustrated <i>Libro de Anatomia</i> was only a section of the more general <i>Remedio de cuerpos humanos</i> (1542?). Montaña's text, like that of another Vesalian propagandist, Thomas Geminus, was largely derived from the popular <i>Anatomy</i> of the medieval surgeon Henri de Mondeville, and was thus more likely than that of Valverde to have been immediately accessible to Spain's barber-surgeons" (Norman).<br/><br/> ❧Norman 739. Garrison-Morton 801.<br/><br/> "The <i>Anothomia</i> of Montaña consists essentially of three parts. The first comprises the anatomy proper to which are appended two chapters, one of which deals with the generation and development of man and the other, with the causes which necessarily lead to death. The second part is a colloquy, the dream of the Marques de Mondejar, presented in the manner of a typical renaissance dialogue between the Marques and Montaña on certain aspects of humoral physiology. And the final section is devoted to the illustrations. <br/><br/> "The anatomical section together with the dedicat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antwerp: Hieronymous Cock, 1556. - Single sheet, mounted and framed (6 ¼ x 9 inches). FINE engraving and etching, with transparent wash and body color, highlighted with gold and silver. Provenance: Signed "GM," most likely Georg Mack the Elder. First edition. EXTREMELY FINE engraving by Coornhert after a drawing by Heemskerck, ILLUMINATED and SIGNED by Georg Mack the Elder. Exhibited in "Painted Prints: The Revelation of Color in Northern Renaissance & Baroque Engravings, Etchings & Woodcuts," 2002, no. 42, at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Number 7 in a series of 12 engravings entitled "The Victories of Emperor Charles V." "In 1556 Hieronymus Cock published a series of 12 engravings, with a separate title page, on the theme of the victories of Emperor Charles V. The designs were by Maarten van Heemskerck, and the plates were cut by Dirck Volckertsz. Coornhert.'The victories of Charles V' exalts the mighty deeds of the emperor. The title page refers to the prints as 'images of paternal triumphs' ('paternarum victoriarum imagines'), and the dedication is to Charles's successor as Lord of the Netherlands, so the series may well have been intended to urge Philip to follow in his father's footsteps. "Beneath the seventh print we are told that 'The emperor enters Tunis in triumph, victorious through his courage in the war; the African yields at once and is put to Flight.'

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.
