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]

COORNHERT, Dirck Volkertszoon (1522-1590) - MACK, Georg the Elder (fl. 1556-1601) - HEEMSKERCK, Maarten Van (1498-1574)
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.' 'The Africa' is the infamous pirate-admiral Barbarossa who terrorized the western Mediterranean, attacking the galleys of the Christians and transporting crew and passengers to serve as slaves.

Froben, Basle, 1556. Two volumes in one. Pp. 8 p.l., 787, [1] blank; [10], 391, [1] device. Separate title pages for each volume, with large woodcuts of Froben's device on each, plus one on final page. Numerous large and small historiated woodcut initials.

Binding a little soiled, minor wear to extremities, corners exposed, small burn mark on lower edge of front cover, lacking ties. Extensive notes in an old hand on front free endpaper, but otherwise an exceptionally fine copy internally, in a still attractive binding. In addition to his famous edition of the Greek New Testament, published with a Latin translation in 1516, Erasmus also produced a paraphrase of the whole New Testament (with the exception of the Apocalypse) between 1517 and 1524. Written in his spontaneous and natural Latin style, the work was received with great acclaim, and an English translation made in 1548 was ordered to be placed in all parish churches next to the Bible. The present edition is an early reprint of the first complete edition issued by Johann Froben in 1524. Adams E737. Size: Folio [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

RAMUSIO, G. B./ GASTALDI, G.
Venice, 1556. No Binding. Very Good. 11 ½ x 11 ¾ inches. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

SIGONIUS, Carolus,
Ex officina Stellae Giordanis Zileti., Venedig, 1556 - Venedig, Ex officina Stellae Giordanis Zileti. 1556. Folio. Ttlbl.mit Druckersignet, 169gezählte Blätter. Flexibler Pappband. Schöner, klarer Druck, sehr wenig Wurmfraß. Helles starkes Papier. Carolo Sigonio (1523/24 - 1584), Professor für alte Sprachen in Venedig, dann Padua, schließlich an der Universität zu Bologna. Sigonio war der bedeutendste Altertumsforscher im 16. Jahrhundert und seine Werke fanden Aufnahme praktisch in ganz Europa. Die Liste der römischen Konsuln, die fasti consulares, war grundlegend für die römische Geschichtsschreibung. Grundlage war ein Fund in den Jahren 1546 und 1547, als die meisten Fragmente dieser Fasti consulares gefunden wurden. Der große Historiker Sigonius publizierte diesen sensationellen Fund. Sprache: lateinisch Schöner, klarer Druck, sehr wenig Wurmfraß. Helles starkes Papier. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

PREMIERE TRADUCTION LATINE DU célèbre « Banquet des Savants » d’Athénée, « encyclopédie riche et variée de l’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’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’auteur nous a laissé cet important ouvrage qui est un trésor d’érudition. Sa compilation est d’autant plus précieuse que la plupart des ouvrages qu’il cite sont perdus. C’est une encyclopédie de l’Antiquité, riche, variée, éblouissante.   « D’une m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Friderich, Mattheus.
[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.
