de l'Imprimerie de Gilles Richeboys, A Sens 1556 - 3 parties en 1 vol. petit in-4 de (12)-95-(1) pp. 174 pp. 70 pp. (1) f., basane taupe, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre en maroquin rouge (reliure du XIXe siècle). Rare impression de 1556 de la ville de Sens, la troisième depuis l'introduction de l'imprimerie dans cette ville en 1552. 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).

MERULA, Gaudenzio.
Lyons: Macé Bonhomme, 1556. Octavo (167 x 103 mm). Later brown morocco to 16th-century style, plain raised bands, spine gilt-lettered in second compartment, old gilt edges. 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. 5 woodcut figures in the text. 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. Sabin 48033. [Attributes: First Edition]

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]

Alciati, ANDREA
Lyons J. de Tournes & G. Gazeau, 1556. Sm. 8vo., full green morocco with a pair of double gilt fillet borders trapping a beaded border; floral gilt corner fleurons; the spine is decorated in a Greek key design, without titling. A.e.g. over red staining, printed floral endpapers. A handsome, unsophisticated binding of indeterminate age in fine condition.Ruth Mortimer points out that this series of 113 woodcuts was designed for the first de Tournes-Gazeau edition of 1547, and continued in use into the seventeenth century. The subjects were freely adapted from the Paris blocks--either directly or through Lyons copies used in editions by Jacques Moderne in 1544 and 1545—with considerable skill in added detail. The series is attributed to BERNARD SALOMON and are considered, "the most skillful of the Alciati interpretations."The Hofer-Harvard copy Ms. Mortimer describes is the 1580 sixth de Tournes edition. Our edition contains EXCELLENT IMPRESSIONS of the blocks and wide margins except for the title-page border which is closely trimmed along the right edge with minimal loss. Lower right corner of the first two leaves restored from the verso with a small ink addition to the border. UNCOMMON IN ANY EDITION, just one copy shows up in auction records for the past twenty-six years.See also: Cartier vol. 2. Brunet I, p. 148 (1547 edition only). Praz p. 6 (1547 edition).

Ramusio, Giovanni Battista (1485-1557) and Gastaldi, Giacomo (c. 1500-1556)
Venice, 1556. THE EARLIEST PRINTED VIEW OF A NATIVE AMERICAN SETTLEMENT AND OF MONTREAL CANADA Woodcut: 123/8" x 167/8" References: F. St. George Spendlove, The Face of Early Canada (Toronto, 1958) 5, Plate 1; S. M. Morison, The European Discovery of America (New York, 1971) 410-417; R. V. Tooley, The Mapping of America (London, 1985) 211. This woodcut, published in Venice, is the first printed plan of an urban area in North America and is a particularly valuable record of a Native American settlement. Although largely imaginative, the plan was a close attempt to achieve scientific accuracy. The woodblock for the first state of the map was destroyed by fire in 1557 and for the second issue of 1556 a new woodblock was cut. The third edition (1606) is identical to the second, except that vermin had damaged the block, resulting in areas void of imprint. "La Terra de Hochelaga nella Nova Francia" is based upon Jacques Cartier's second voyage to the New World, begun in 1535, and must have been derived from a sketch or description brought home by the explorer. On October 2, Cartier arrived at the Huron village of Hochelaga, the future site of Montréal. As can be seen in Ramusio's woodcut, cut by Matteo Pagano, Cartier and his men were greeted by over one thousand Native Americans, presenting them with gifts and corn bread. The celebrations continued throughout the night with dancing and bonfires by the river edge. Hochelaga was surrounded by open maize fields and required significant fortification due to its location on one of the favorite warpaths of the Five Nations. It … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ramusio, Giovanni Battista (1485-1557 AND Gastaldi, Giacomo (c. 1500-1566)
Venice, 1556. A FIRST ISSUE OF THE EARLIEST MAP TO DEPICT THE AMERICAS ACCURATELY Woodcut: 121/2" x 163/4" References: Carl I. Wheat, Mapping of the Transmississippi West 1540-1861 (San Francisco, 1958-1963) 1: 21; Philip D. Burden, The Mapping of North America: A List of Printed Maps 1511-1670 (Rickmansworth, 1996), 29-30. Although this map appears in Giovanni Battista Ramusio's Terzo Volvme delle Navigationi et Viaggi it is generally assumed to be the work of the great Italian cartographer Giacomo Gastaldi. In the introduction Ramusio noted that he asked Gastaldi to prepare five different maps for the volume. This map of the western hemisphere is, according to Carl Wheat, "the earliest cartographic reflection" and "an advance of first importance" of European knowledge about the American West. Of groundbreaking significance, it is the earliest obtainable map to accurately depict the Americas. It is the first map to depict the names derived from the travels of Francisco Vasquez Coronado, the first European to travel extensively in what is now the southwestern United States. The account of his journey, conducted between 1540 and 1542, is contained within Ramusio's book and this map includes the settlement names of Quivera, Cicuic, Axa, Cucho, Cibola and Tiguas, as learnt from Coronado. The Sierra Nevadas appear on the map for the first time, knowledge of which was derived from Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo's explorations of the California coastline in 1542. The map also includes an early reference to Florida and depicts its peninsular shape, albeit inaccurately. A nati … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lily, George (cartographer, d. 1559) and "I.H.S." (engraver)
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's map, first issued in Rome in 1546, derived the shape of England and Wales from Sebastian Münster'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's split with the papacy. Lily established himself in Rome, working as an editor of maps in collabor … [Click Below for Full Description]

Africanus, Johannes Leo [Leo, John]
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, red morocco 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 states 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 especi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cicero M. Tullius (ed. Dionysius Lambinus Denys Lambin)
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. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Marca tipografica all' inizio e fregio in fine. Eleganti capilettera xilografici. Edizione molto rara, manca ad Adams, Bm. Stc. French e Sapori. Celebre ed erudita opera misogina che si inimicò il gentil sesso per i suoi feroci sarcasmi contro il mondo femminile e contro il matrimonio optando per il concubinaggio. Si dice che per le maldicenze l' autore fu costretto ad inginocchiarsi davanti alle dame di Torino e l' opera fu messa all' indice. Per questo motivo l' edizione originale del 1518 è pressocchè sparita. Qualche antica sottolineatura, più pesante a pagg. 22 danneggia alcune righe. Una macchiolina all' estremo margine di poche carte in fine peraltro esemplare bello nitido e genuino. Alla sguardia anteriore un' antica notazione coeva di nove righe. * Gay III 1163; * Baudrier V 241; * Graesse IV 661; * Brunet IV 47.[f42] . ottimo. Rilegato. 1556.

Lopez de Gomara was Cortes' secretary for a number of years, and made use of his unparalleled opportunity to gather information from the primary source relating to the extraordinary exploits surrounding the overthrow of the Aztec empire. 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.

Lutetiae (Paris), Aegidium Gourbinum, 1556. 4to. (24x17 cm.). Later limp vellum with ms. title on spine. Title with printers device in woodcut. Initials in woodcut. Ff (4),56 (=(8),102 pp.). 1 full-page woodcut illustration of the quadrant and many diagrams and illustrations in the text. Upper right corner of titlepage repaired with paperpulp, and a tear to corner on F 2 repaired, not affecting the text. Light scattered brownspots, but a good broad-margined copy.. First edition as a separate text published posthumously by Fine's son the year after his father's death. The work was originally issued as part two of Finé's "Protomathesis" from 1532. In this work Finé shows the varied use of the quadrant in measuring distances, proportions, solids etc. as a derivation of the trigonometric quadrant from the eleventh century "quadrans vetustissimus", as also described by Appian in his "Instrumentum...primi mobilis" 1534. - "Finé dealt only with the strictly trigonometric use of the quadrant, determination of the right and versed sines of a given arc - or vice versa - and the products or ratios of two sines. Virtually ignoring the application of its properties to astronomical calculations..."(DSB). "Fine apparently built very large instruments of four or five feet in size and thus was able to graduate them in finer detail than their simpler hand-held cousins. An illustration shows a geometric square with 120 divisions in the quadrant-a significant improvement over the usual dozen or so on the shadow scales of the smaller instruments. One illustration shows a mechanism for finding t … [Click Below for Full Description]
