LENZONI CARLO
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 Bernardino Tomitano. … [Click Below for Full Description]

CICERON (Marcus Tullius Cicero), ESTREBAY (Jacques-Louis d') dit Strebaeus, MELANCHTHON (Philippe)
Paris, apud Thomas Richardum [Thomas Richard], 1556. In-4, pleine basane mouchetée, dos à nerfs orné de compartiments dorés, tranches mouchetées rouges (rel. du XVIIe, coiffes et mors usés, étiquette de bibliothèque au dos, une infime gal. de vers), 304 f. titre inclus, grande vignette de titre à la marque de l'éditeur. Belle impression en caractères droits et italiques, romains et grecs, lettrines sur fond criblé, colophon à la date de 1554. Bonne édition humaniste des trois livres du 'De Oratore', traité politique sous forme de dialogues que Ciceron composa à la manière d'Aristote, accompagnée du commentaire de Jacques-Louis d'Estrebay et des notes de Philippe Melanchthon. Né à Estrebay dans les Ardennes, Jacques-Louis d'Estrebay (dit Strebaeus), devint professeur à Reims. Sur le renouveau du cicéronianisme au milieu du XVIe s. et ces "riches et trop méconnus commentaires de J.-L. d'Estrebay", cf. M. Magnien, 'La rhétorique reconsidérée in Histoire de la rhétorique dans l'Europe moderne', p. 343 et 356 ainsi que Meerhoff, 'Rhétorique et poétique au XVIe siècle en France', p. 49 sq. (Adams, C-1708. 'La France des Humanistes I', p.156-157. Cette édition manque à la BnF, au CCFr et à WorldCat). Très bon état intérieur, très frais, grand de marges (216 x 153 mm).

[Colophon: Vinegia: Bartholomio detto l'Imperadore & Francesco suo genero, 1556]. 8vo (15.8 cm, 6.25"). [223] ff. (O1 & O8 lacking); illus. Scarce 16th-century printing of this 15th-century verse account of the Trojan War. The work is sometimes attributed to Angelo Giovanni Franci or alternately to Jacopo di Carlo, the latter citation probably erroneously based on di Carlo's having printed an early edition — while the former has in its favor the acrostic formed by the last four stanzas of the final canto: "Angilus[c] Iohannes Franci ad Andream f."    The title-page is printed in black and red and features a large woodcut (rather striking in that the armored man stabbing another man in the face, the man being stabbed, their two horses, and the man on whom the horses are trampling all have notably neutral-to-nonchalant expressions), while the first canto is decorated with a double-column woodcut flanked with sidepieces, and 18 of the subsequent cantos open each with a small woodcut, most depicting martial scenes. Unlike most other editions of this popular history, the present example is an octavo rather than quarto printing, and is not described by most of the standard reference works.    WorldCat and NUC Pre-1956 find => no institutional holdings of this edition and find only one U.S. library (Princeton) reporting ownership of any 16th-century edition of the work in Italian!    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A.

Oval woodcut printer's mark on the title, it depicts a stork feeding a snake to its mate. The Latin motto encircling the image reads "Virtus pietas homini tutissima", or ‘Piety is the most secure virtue for men’. This printer's mark is repeated on the last page.) (Condition: Vellum gone. Title and last leaves soiled. Both pastedowns detached) (Note: The Greek novelist Heliodorus, floruit 220-250 A.D., is the author of the Aethiopicae, the longest and best constructed of the Greek novels which came down to us. Other well known romanciers of late antiquity are Achilles Tatius, Chariton, Longus and Xenophon Ephesius. The extant novels show similarities of plot, matter and style, and were written for the general public. 'The central figures are a young man and his betrothed or wife, whose reciprocal faithfulness, moral rectitute, and physical courage are tested by a prolonged series of adventures; the couple invariably overcome all their tribulations, to live happily ever after'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 739) The love-scenes in the Greek romances are seldom pornographic, and are tedious in their artificiality.

WEIL, Rabbi Ya'akov.
Mantua, Ya'akov Cohen of Gazulo (printer), 1556. 16 leaves, 15.7 x 10.3 cm, printed on vellum; text in Hebrew; preserved in a new solander box with gilt decoration. A scarce edition of the fundamental book of ruling and laws of 'shechita' and 'trefot'. Shechita is slaughtering of mammals and birds for food, also known as kosher slaughter. Trefa is food which does not satisfy the requirements of the Jewish laws of kashrut, meaning it is not kosher. The book consists of two works: Shechitot (plural from Shechita) and Bedikot (meaning 'tests' or 'examinations') written by Rabbi Ya'akov ben Yehuda Weil - one of the leading Ashkenazic Torah authorities and a disciple to the Maharil (Ya'akov ben Moshe Levi Moelin - a famous 14th century Talmudist). These works were first printed in 1549 in Venice, as part of the book of Responsa by Mahari Veil, and later published separately in more than 100 editions by various printers. This is a very rare copy printed on vellum. During the 14th century the use of paper in book printing spread throughout Europe and slowly replaced vellum. With the introduction of the letterpress in the mid-15th century the production of books printed on paper became significantly cheaper. Copies printed on vellum were significantly more expensive and produced in small numbers, usually to special orders by affluent individuals, therefore these days they are extremely rare. Only one other copy of this early edition on vellum is known to exist - in the collection of the British Library. On the reverse of the title-page there are several ownership inscriptions and s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small 4to (170 by 120mm), handsomely bound in antique, probably 16th century, contemporary full calf.

Now chemised and in a quarter morocco slipcase gilt lettered. [4ff], 106ff, [17ff, annotations and errata] pp. A very handsome and well preserved copy, only a few leaves with minor and expected light soiling, one small marginal flaw, the binding solid and attractive with expert and near invisible restoration at the hinges. VERY RARE, ONLY TWO COPIES IN PUBLIC AUCTION RECORDS SINCE THE 1970's. OCLC LIST ONLY 13 COPIES WORLDWIDE. Nicholas Smyth's translation was the first appearance of this important history in English. Pforzheimer notes that it may actually have been printed by Tottel, despite Copland's imprint and colophon, the date is conjectored and sometimes given as 1550 thought 1556 is believed to be more accurate. Herodianus was "[t]he author of an extant history, in the Greek language, of the Roman Empire, in eight books (all present within this volume), from the death of Marcus Aurelius to the commencement of the reign of Gordia … [Click Below for Full Description]

This the Berland copy with his famous ex-libris to the upper pastedown. Approximately thirty 3/4 page woodcuts and 10 full page woodcuts, most of which are repeated several times throughout the text (for a total of 118 woodcut illustrations).

A fine and handsomely preserved copy of this rare book, A1 (title), C4 and final leaf S4 supplied in expert, essentially indiscernible facsimile. VERY RARE FIRST AND ONLY EDITION, WITH VERY FINE PROVENANCE, THE BERLAND COPY, AND A VERY RARE BOOK. Interpretations of this, the most famous of Tudor poems, abound. Heywood himself, who took twenty years to finish the Spider and the Flie, didn't know quite what to make of it when it was finally completed. Whomever (or whatever) the spiders and the flies were supposed to represent (the prevailing critical interpretation has the spiders as the Pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACROBIUS, Ambrosius Theodosius
Seb. Gryphium, 1556. 8vo. pp. 567 [lxxiii]. Italic letter, some Greek, woodcut printer's device on title, attractive historiated woodcut initials, famous page woodcut world map and several astronomical diagrams, title fractionally dusty, '50 40' in early hand at head. A very good, clean copy in late C17 cats paw calf, covers double ruled in blind, spine with raised bands gilt in compartments, red morocco title label gilt, all edges speckled blue. A beautifully printed copy of Macrobius' two surviving works, most of what has come down to us from this Roman grammarian and philosopher; an abstract remains of a third piece on grammar. Macrobius was of African descent. He may be the Macrobius mentioned in the Codex Theodosianus as a praetorian prefect of Spain in 399-400, proconsul of Africa in 410, and lord chamberlain in 422. Macrobius' Saturnalia, with its idolisation of Rome's pagan past, has been described as a pagan "machine de guerre". It recounts the discussions held at the house of Vettius Agorius Praetextatus (c. 325-385) during the Saturnalia holiday and was written for the benefit of Macrobius' son Eustachius. The first book inquires into the origin of the Saturnalia and the festivals of Janus, leading to a history of the Roman calendar, and an attempt to derive all forms of worship from that of the Sun. The second begins with a collection of 'bons mots', many ascribed to Cicero and Augustus, and a discussion of various pleasures, especially of the senses, but most is lost. The third, fourth, fifth and sixth books are devoted to Virgil, dwelling respectively on his l … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHILIP II, King of Spain.
, . . Original mortgage agreement in Dutch in which King Philip II of Spain, who had sovereignty over the Low Countries and held the title Count of Holland, grants Jan Hanneman the rights to the tithes from his lands of Voorburg and Voorschoten. Philip had succeeded to the Spanish crown the year before on the abdication of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, and the present elegantly written text explains that he and the Spanish Government wish to ameliorate their "very large and excessive debts" (it later speaks of 300,000 guilders, which would be 50,000 Flemish pounds) resulting from years of war, the building and maintenance of many fortifications and the salaries of the troops, so the King wishes to mortgage or sell some of his royal domains and the rights to tithes that go with them. Efforts in 1556 had not yielded enough. Spain was later able to finance the wars with treasures from the colonies, most famously transported in the annual silver fleet beginning in 1566, but here a decade earlier, the King was desperate for funds.Formerly folded. In very good condition, but with the sewing recent and rather loose. A primary source for Spain's financial state in 1557 and for the history of Voorburg and Voorschoten.

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. "Er will das "Wissen" and die Stelle des "Glaubens" stellen" - "die "dämonische" Kausalität des Glaubens weicht der Kausalität der Wissenschaft" (Cassirer, p. 110 + 111). <br><br>8vo. Contemporary full limp vellum, with vellum cords to hinges. Remains of vellum ties to boards. A bit of brownspotting, but all in all a lovely, completely unrestored copy in its first binding. Five large woodcut initials and large woodcut printer's device to verso of last leaf. (16), 349, (3). <br><br>Adams: P-1827; Wellcome: I:5153; DSB: XI:71-74.<br><br>A.H.
