Littleton, Sir Thomas
1556. Littleton, Sir Thomas [1402-1481]. Lyttilton Tenures Truelye Translated into Englishe. [Imprinted at Londo[n] in Fletestrete Near to S. Dunstones Church. By Thomas Marshe, Anno 1556]. 180, [2] ff. Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-1/2"). Eighteenth-century calf, gilt fillets and lettering piece to spine. Some rubbing to extremities, corners bumped and lightly worn, a few minor nicks and scratches, a few vertical creases to spine, armorial bookplate (of Guy Phillips) to front pastedown. Title printed within woodcut architectural border. Light toning to text, edges trimmed closely with some loss to fore-edge of title page and a few headlines and side-notes, chips to fore-edges of ff. 10 and 27 repaired. Early annotations to title page and a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is the first English treatise on a specific topic and probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases. "Five books stand out pre-eminently in the history of English law - Glanvil, Bracton, Littleton, Coke, and Blackstone, and of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

POMPONAZZI, PIETRO (PETRUS POMPONATIUS). - [ESTABLISHING THE ENLIGHTENMENT]
Basel, [Per Henrichum Petri, 1556 - on colophon]. An absolutely lovely copy of the exceedingly scarce first edition, first printing, of one of the most influential and important works in the history of modern thought. A work that has for a long time been overlooked due to the gross neglect of the history of Renaissance philosophy, but which has nonetheless been seminal to the development of scientific and philosophical thought from the 16th century and onwards. With a purely naturalistic and immanent view of the natural process, Pomponazzi here frees man's thought from the bounds of religion and provides modern thinkers and scientists with pure empiricism and naturalism.

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.

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.

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 août 1555 nous apprennent que le procès-verbal des anciennes coutumes de Sens avait été perdu et adiré, de sorte qu'il n'y avait aucun moyen de constater d'une manière authentique les articles de ces coutumes qui avaient été accordés ou discordés par les États lors de leur publication, et de résoudre les autres difficultés que l'interprétation de ces coutumes pouvait faire naître. On avait donc été contraint, comme par le passé, de vérifier les articles de coutumes par turbes de témoins, ce qui avait fait continuer tous les abus et inconvénients auxquels la rédaction des coutumes et leur conversion en lois devaient porter remède. Ces lettres patentes chargeaient en conséquence le président de Thou, le conseiller au parlement Barthélemy Faye et l'avocat du roi Gilles Bourdin, de procéder à une nouvelle rédaction et publication des coutumes de Sens, ce qui eut lieu, en effet, au mois de novembre de cette même année. » (Klimrath et Warnkönig, Travaux sur l'histoire du droit français, 1843).

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.

Leather at upper compartment of back gone and a nick to lower compartment. Corners bumped and worn, somewhat rubbed. 567,(71) pp. Old repair to foot of title, no loss of text. Some old ownership inscriptions on endpapers and title, 2 old engraved bookplates pasted on front-and endpapers. Internally with a few mainly marginal brownspopts and a faint dampstain in lower corners of the first leaves. Woodcut initials. "Somnium" pp. 3-178 having geographical woodcuts in the text and a woodcut map of the old world. Printers woodcut-device on title. ¶ Fourth Lyon-edition of Macrobius's 2 main works. In the "Somnium" he uses passages of Cicero's work as mere suggestions to construct a treatise on Neoplatonic philosophy - the most satisfactory and widely read Latin compendium on Neoplatonism that existed during the Middle Ages. Macrobius was one of the leading popularizers of science in the Latin West, and his conception of the world geography as an equatorial and meridional ocean (depicted in the book) dividing the earth into four quarters, dominated scientific thinking on world geography in the Middle Ages. - His "Saturnalia" deals with Roman feasts in form of table-talk at a banquet in Rome, giving information of food and drink and their preparation (Vicaire 986 (ed.1492, Simon p. 547 (ed. 1492)). and is fascinatingly rich in philological, historical, antiquarian and scientific lore, throwing a clear light on the interests and taste of the period. - A … [Click Below for Full Description]
