Aurelii Augustini
basel: 1556. Leather Binding Very rare! It is a fabulous book from the 16th century, a museum piece, an excellent investment for collectors. Saint Augustine of Hippo (13 November 354 - 28 August 430) was a Roman African, early Christian theologian and philosopher from Numidia whose writings influenced the development of Western Christianity and Western philosophy. He was the bishop of Hippo Regius in north Africa and is viewed as one of the most important Church Fathers in Western Christianity for his writings in the Patristic Era. Among his most important works are The City of God, On Christian Doctrine and Confessions. According to his contemporary Jerome, Augustine "established anew the ancient Faith". In his youth he was drawn to Manichaeism and later to neo-Platonism. After his baptism and conversion to Christianity in 386, Augustine developed his own approach to philosophy and theology, accommodating a variety of methods and perspectives. Believing that the grace of Christ was indispensable to human freedom, he helped formulate the doctrine of original sin and made seminal contributions to the development of just war theory. When the Western Roman Empire began to disintegrate, Augustine imagined the Church as a spiritual City of God, distinct from the material Earthly City.His thoughts profoundly influenced the medieval worldview. The segment of the Church that adhered to the concept of the Trinity as defined by the Council of Nicaea and the Council of Constantinople closely identified with Augustine's On the Trinity. Augustine is recognized as a saint in the Catholic … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRANCO, Pierre
Antoine Vincent, Lyon, 1556. First edition, in an untouched contemporary binding and with a fine provenance, of this exceptionally rare work which "includes the first recorded description of an operation for strangulated hernia" (Garrison-Morton). This work is absent from many major medical collections, which regard the expanded second edition of 1561 as the first. "Pierre Franco, creator of suprapubic lithotomy cataract operation and surgical repair of hernia with preservation of the testis, is considered to be one of the greatest surgeons of the Renaissance and a forerunner of urology" (Androutsos, p. 255). "Considered from the point of view of the performance of operations, Franco should be considered the premier surgeon of the sixteenth century. Paré was an active man, observant, a man of genius, but he left aside what made the success of Franco, that is the operations of hernia, bladder stones, and cataracts. Franco spent his life in a completely different and modest setting compared to Paré, but he invents operations that should remain in the practice of surgery; there is no surgeon who has given more discoveries to surgery" (Nicaise, Introduction). "The first book published by Paré was his Dix livres de chirurgie - a small book of ten chapters - in 1564. In it he more or less copied, without credit, the sections of Franco's book on lithotomy and cystostomy. However, Paré acknowledged this later in his 1575 Oeuvres de Chirurgie" (McDowell). "Franco was influential in bringing operative surgery back into the realm of regular surgical practice, recapturing it from the i … [Click Below for Full Description]

PECKHAM, Johannes
1556. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. The 13th-century was the height of the Middle-Ages and saw the rise of scholars and prominent figures such as Aquinas, Roger Bacon, Albert Magnus, Francis Assisi, and Polo. However, another name should be included in this list - John Peckham. Peckham's contributions to the study of optics and experimental sciences were a direct reflection of those of Roger Bacon, of whom Peckham was well-acquainted. Peckham published various works on optics, philosophy, and theology, though none of them as important or popular as his 'Perspectiva'. This work features a collection of various articles and reports on experiments on optics, physiology of the eye, and catoptrics. He discusses the reflections of light, and descriptions of rainbows and the galaxy, and an early description of a 'camera obscura'! Peckham pushed the need for proofs of his discoveries, and in the 16th-century astronomers such as Harmann and Hamel propelled Peckham's 200 year old ideas. In addition to highly interesting and desirable contents, this book features 62 illustrations of Georg Harmann, a renowned 16th-century German astronomer who was focused on progressing the study of optics and astronomy. However, the editor of this 1556 edition was Paschasius Hamellius, an astrologer who was a staunch defender of old tables and schools of thought. (Crawford, 99). [Attributes: First Edition]

HERODOTUS. - [THE MONUMENTAL FIRST FRENCH EDITION OF THE HISTORIES OF HERODOTUS]
Paris, Iean Roigny, 1556. Folio. In contemporary linp vellum, with three (of four) of the original vellum ties. Binding with wear and inner hinge weak, but in completely original state, with no restorations. Only some light scattered brownspotting and a worm-tract to inner margin, just occasionally touching a few letters. Book-plate to pasted-down front end-paper. A lovely copy. (4), CCXLIII ff. The scarce first edition of Saliat's translation of the complete Histories of Herodotus, being the extremely popular first French edition and arguably the most important French edition of the work ever published. Saliat's monumental 1556-translation of Herodutus was extremely influential end widely used and quoted. It greatly influenced the way that Herodotus was used and understood in Renaissance France. It was used by virtually all contemporary French intellectuals as the main reference - as for instance Sandys points out, it is from this that all of Montaigne's Herodotus-quotations are taken (Sandys, vol. II, p. 197). Pierre Saliat had published a small work in 1552 consisting the the first three books of Herodotus, and in 1556, his monumental translation of the complete work appeared; for the first time, all nine books were accessible in the French language. "Little is known of Saliat's life except that he had produced two previous translations from Latin, Erasmus' "On Methods of Instructing Children" and a collection of Roman speeches. Both translations of Herdotus are dedicated to the king, Henry II, and Saliat notes that the work on the first three books had taken him six yea … [Click Below for Full Description]

RAMUSIO, Giovanni Battista and Giacomo GASTALDI
[Venice,: stamperia dei Giunta, 1556. [Venice,: stamperia dei Giunta,, 1556. 1556]. Double-page woodcut map. The rare first state of Ramusio's map of New England and New France, produced by Giacomo Gastaldi for the third volume of Ramusio's highly important work, 'Delle Naviagtioni et Viaggi.' It is the earliest printed map devoted to the region, and is also the first map to use the term 'New France.' Gastaldi's map is largely based on the voyages of Cartier and Verrazzano. The Hudson River, the St. Lawrence River, and the islands near the Gulf of St. Lawrence are the most prominent features, along with a curious snake-like projection in the Atlantic Ocean that has been the subject of much speculation. It is probably an attempt to depict the Grand Banks, but it has also been suggested that it is the Gulf Stream. The depiction of the area between New York Harbour and Narragansett Bay is based on the voyage of Verrazzano in 1524. The area around New York Harbour, shown here as a peninsula, is named Angoulesme. The large bay to the east of New York Harbour is probably Jamaica Bay, which was more open to the ocean at that time. Long Island, which Verrazzano thought was a peninsula, is labelled Flora. The Hudson River is shown joining the St Lawrence - an assumption that Verrezzano and Cartier's rivers were connected. Ramusio's 'Delle Navigationi et Viaggi' was first published in three volumes between 1550 and 1559, and followed by various subsequent editions, all of which had additions made to them. "This is one of the earliest and most important collections of voyages and … [Click Below for Full Description]

" - Apud Seb. Gryphium, Lugduni (Lyon) 1556, In 8 (10x17,7cm), 567pp. (62), relié. - Nouvelle édition. La première parue chez Sébastien Gryphe semble être celle de 1538. Marque de l'imprimeur sur la page de titre, et 7 vignettes dans le premier texte : Le songe de Scipion, dont une curieuse mappemonde qui divise le monde en zones climatiques. Impression en Minuscules Italiques. Plein Velin d'époque. Dos lisse avec titre à la plume noire. Page de titre doublée en marge. Un manque comblé en marge du feuillet 17, rendant illisible la note. Hormis ces quelques défauts, bon exemplaire, très frais. Les deux textes réunis dans cette édition constituent les uvres majeures de Macrobius, lequel vivait vers l'an 400 et dont on sait peu de chose sinon qu'il était un philosophe néoplatonicien et stoïcien opposé au christianisme de plus en plus répandu. L'idée du songe de Scipion est extraite de la république de Cicéron dans laquelle celui-ci attribue un rêve au jeune Scipion où se déroule une conversation entre les héros décédés de la République, et notamment son père et son grand-père. L'ouvrage est constitué des commentaires de Macrobius, notamment sur la constitution de l'univers. Le deuxième texte réfère aux Saturnales, journées de fêtes pour les romains , Macrobius y relate les discussions tenues dans la demeure de Vettius Praetextatus, l'auteur y traite de différents sujets, mythologiques et astronomiques, médicaux, citant de nombreux textes anciens.

PECKHAM, Johannes
Lutetiae : Apud Aegidium Gourdinum, 1556. First edition. 1556 1ed Peckham Perspective OPTICS Astronomy Illustrated Camera Obscura Physics The 13th-century was the height of the Middle-Ages and saw the rise of scholars and prominent figures such as Aquinas, Roger Bacon, Albert Magnus, Francis Assisi, and Polo. However, another name should be included in this list – John Peckham. Peckham’s contributions to the study of optics and experimental sciences were a direct reflection of those of Roger Bacon, of whom Peckham was well-acquainted. Peckham published various works on optics, philosophy, and theology, though none of them as important or popular as his ‘Perspectiva’. This work features a collection of various articles and reports on experiments on optics, physiology of the eye, and catoptrics. He discusses the reflections of light, and descriptions of rainbows and the galaxy, and an early description of a ‘camera obscura’! Peckham pushed the need for proofs of his discoveries, and in the 16th-century astronomers such as Harmann and Hamel propelled Peckham’s 200 year old ideas. In addition to highly interesting and desirable contents, this book features 62 illustrations of Georg Harmann, a renowned 16th-century German astronomer who was focused on progressing the study of optics and astronomy. However, the editor of this 1556 edition was Paschasius Hamellius, an astrologer who was a staunch defender of old tables and schools of thought. (Crawford, 99).

Dimensions 160 x 100 mm. 179 ff., printed on paper in red and black, Roman letter type, paper ruled in light red, 18 LARGE WOODCUTS, 1 SMALL WOODCUT, BORDERS ON EACH PAGE, including title-page, of headpieces, side-strips and footpieces with birds, flowers, animals and a variety of FRENCH ROYAL INSIGNIA. BINDING: sixteenth-century binding of gold-tooled brown polished calf over pasteboard, preserving contemporary boards, smooth spine with gilt fleurons and fillets (rebacked), edges gilt, edges cracked, likely due to rebacking. ILLUSTRATION: Printed in Paris by Thielmann Kerver II (the Younger), this is a good example of how a printer's material and woodblocks were passed on and reused throughout the sixteenth century. The material can be traced back to the famous printer and graphic artist Geoffroy Tory (c. 1480-1533), something of a "French Leonardo," who was reared in Bourges but soon settled in Paris and began printing circa 1507. The woodcuts reused here from his stock are good examples of this new Italianate aesthetic (with a clear interest in ornaments "à l'antique") that existed parallel to the traditional Gothic "French" aesthetic. PROVENANCE: Printed in Paris in 1546 by Thielmann Kerver II (died 1572/1573), active in Paris as libraire-juré from 1544 to 1566. It was then in a private European collection.

Marbled endpapers. Scarce first French edition of the famous description of Islamic Africa and Arabia, with the illustrations coloured by a contemporary hand; the first collection of voyages printed in France. The book was originally written in Arabic around 1526 by the Berber Andalusi geographer and traveller al-Hasan ibn Muhammad al-Wazzan al-Fasi (ca. 1494-ca. 1554), known in the West as Johannes Leo Africanus, translated into Italian by the author and first published in Venice in 1550. The Arabian Peninsula is depicted nearly complete on the double-page woodcut map and is treated extensively in the first chapter, which contains information on its people, cities, geography, religion, customs, costumes, etc. Illustrations include Arabian camels and veiled women. - Johannes Leo took his Christian name from his sponsor Pope Leo X when he converted to Christianity after his capture in 1520. While still very young he began to travel widely in the Barbary States; in 1513 he appears to have started on his famous Sudan and Sahara journeys (1513-15). In 1516-17 he travelled to Constantinople, probably visiting Egypt on the way; it is more uncertain when he visited Arabias, Armenia and Tartary.

BIRINGUCCIO, Vannoccio [1540-c1539].
Paris: Claude Fremy, 1556. First Edition of the French Translation by Jacques Vincent (first: 1540) of the earliest printed handbook on metallurgy, the first comprehensive account of the fire-using arts, and a classic in the history of science and technology. The work is illustrated with eighty-four woodcuts showing furnaces, distillation equipment, bellows mechanisms, tools for boring cannon, drawing wire, &c. Biringuccio discusses metallic ores, the semi-minerals, assaying and smelting, the parting of gold and silver, metal alloys, casting statues and guns, furnaces and methods of melting metals, alchemy and distillation, minting, smithing, pottery, brick and glassmaking, &c., the preparation of various chemicals and compounds, and the making of gunpowder and fireworks for warfare and celebration. "Virtually all of Biringuccio's descriptions are original. He is important in art history for his description of peculiarly Renaissance arts of casting medallions, statues, statuettes, and bells. His account of typecasting, given in considerable detail, is the earliest known...As the first comprehensive account of the fire-using arts to be printed, the Pirotechnia is a prime source on many practical aspects of inorganic chemistry. Biringuccio emphasizes the adaptation of minerals and metals to use - their alloying, working, and especially the art of casting, of which he writes in great detail. In this area he is far better than the two other sixteenth-century authors with whom he is inevitably compared, Georgius Agricola and Lazarus Ercker. Although Agricola excels on mining an … [Click Below for Full Description]

LENZONI CARLO
In Fiorenza, appresso Lorenzo Torrentino, 1556. Cm. 22; pp. 204 (16). Magnifico frontespizio con dati tipografici entro ricca cornice xilografica, alcuni graziosi capilettera istoriati. Legatura settecentesca in cartonato ricoperto da carta decorata con titoli ms. su tassello al dorso. Alcune interessanti postille di mano coeva. Qualche pagina brunita e sporadiche fioriture, peraltro buon esemplare. Carlo Lenzoni (1501-1551), letterato membro dell'Accademia fiorentina, fu vicino a Giambullari, Gelli e Bartoli nel dibattito sulla lingua, che lo vide avversario delle posizioni di Bembo. Lenzoni sostenne con forza la fiorentinità della lingua viva e parlata, attraverso la difesa di Dante. Quest'opera, esemplificativa di queste posizioni, fu stampata postuma proprio a cura di Giambullari e Bartoli. "La Difesa è in forma di dialogo, in tre giornate, tra il L., Giambullari, Gelli (dalla cui lezione la conversazione risulta ampiamente dominata), Bartoli, Lorenzo Pasquali e un gentiluomo forestiero, il signor Licenziado, portavoce della tesi contrapposta a quella degli Accademici Fiorentini. L'opera si pone quale manifesto dei letterati fiorentini, di impegnativa rivendicazione di un primato che, svolgendo la contrapposizione tra dantismo fiorentino e petrarchismo bembesco, costituisce una confutazione delle riserve sulla lingua fiorentina e su Dante di ispirazione bembesca, che, diffuse dall'ambiente degli Infiammati di Padova, erano state introdotte a Firenze da Varchi. Bersaglio polemico del L. sono così le Prose del Bembo, ma anche i Ragionamenti della lingua toscana di Bernard … [Click Below for Full Description]
