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]

Wyllyam Coplande. First Edition of the First English Translation. Printed in black letter, the title-page within woodcut border and with 18 large woodcut decorative initials and one woodcut tailpiece. Small 4to (170 by 120mm), handsomely bound in antique, probably 16th century, contemporary full calf. The boards elaborately paneled in blind, the panels highly decorative, featuring flowers, wheat, vines and other ornate tooling, the spine elaborately tooled in blind and with two gilt tooled raised bands, each band framed by an elaborate gilt strip finely tooled, lettered in gilt in a wide compartment between the two bands, end-leaves marbled. 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]

Heywood John
Tho. Powell, 1556. VERY RARE. FIRST EDITION of one of the most curious allegorical poems of the Elizabethan period and an exceptional early English woodcut book. 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). In addition there are four woodcut tailpieces (each used many times, a total of 73 impressions.) There are also two full-page portraits of the author. 4to (182 x 132 mm), beautifully bound in very handsome 19th c. full maroon straight grain morocco, tooled in blind and gilt on both covers and spine, titled and dated on spine in gilt, author's name on a small gilt lettered brown morocco label, tooled edges and dentelles, very attractive gauffered edges in a pattern reminiscent of a medieval binding, sewn headbands, silk marker. All in all, a highly 'original' binding, well executed and sturdy. 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.

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). 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). Adams: P-1827; Wellcome: I:5153; DSB: XI:71-74.A.H.

Apostolic canons.
Apud Andream Wechelum sub Pegaso, in vico Bellouaco, 1556. The Apostolic Canons or Ecclesiastical Canons of the Holy Apostles is an important collection of => 85 ancient ecclesiastical decrees concerning the government and discipline of the Early Christian Church, here printed by a Reformation supporter. Andreas Wechel also printed the works of French humanists Petrus Ramus and Nicholas Durand de Villegagnon before narrowly avoiding the St. Batholomew's Day massacre thanks to Hubert Languet. He later moved to Frankfort, and died in 1581. This offering is printed in single columns, with Greek text and Latin commentary surrounded by mostly Greek shouldernotes; Wechel's printer's device appears on the title- and final pages. Searches of WorldCat, NUC, and COPAC reveal => no copies of this edition in a U.S. institution, and only one internationally in Rome. Evidence of Readership: An early reader has added eight notes, one of which has been slightly trimmed through rebinding, that reference the Bible or other rule-sources. Provenance: Early inked note on title-page reads "Ex. Bibl. S. Bern, Fulient. Paris"; institutional rubber-stamps (including a release stamp) of the Bibliothèque Impériale of Paris on title-page and three leaves of text. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

MACROBIUS, AMBROSIUS AURELIUS THEODOSIUS
Lugduni: Seb. Gryphium, 1556. This is an attractive edition of the enduringly popular works of the fifth century philosopher Macrobius, a chief source of Platonism and scientific knowledge in early Medieval Europe. His commentary on Cicero's "Somnium" (which occupies the first part of this volume), and his most important work, the "Saturnalia" (in the form of a discussion among celebrants at the holiday Saturnalia, in the second part of the book) contain a variety of curious historical, mythological, critical, and grammatical disquisitions, and they give us a valuable understanding of the prevailing beliefs of the time in the realms of physics, mathematics, astronomy, and geography. The second work also has particular value because it quotes a variety of earlier authors, some of whom are no longer accessible in extant works of their own.

[Franci, Angelo Giovanni?].
Bartholomio detto l'Imperadore & Francesco suo genero, 1556. 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. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Vincenzo LUCHINI (Attivo a Roma 1552- 1566)
Rarissima edizione di Pietro de Nobili della carta per la prima volta pubblicata da Vincenzo Luchini nel 1556. Descrizione tratta da Bifolco-Ronca, L'Italia e i suoi territori. Il titolo della carta, LOMBARDIA, viene riportato in un nastro in alto nel mezzo. Nell'angolo in basso a sinistra, in un cartiglio sormontato da un mascherone, appare la data 1556. In alto agli angoli divisa in due parti uguali la SCALA DE LE MIGLIA (40 miglia = mm 108). Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro con il nome dei venti TRAMONTANA, MEZODI, LEVANTE, PONENTE, il nord in alto. Acquaforte e bulino, mm 290x475. Carta ispirata all'opera di Luca Antonio de Hubertis, completamente modificata nella rappresentazione dei centri abitati. Il titolo della carta, LOMBARDIA, viene riportato all'interno di un decorativo drappeggio posizionato extra margine in alto, al centro. Nell'angolo in basso a sinistra, uno scudo a volute sormontato da una testa di leone, contiene, in basso, la data 1556. Si tratta di una carta che ebbe molte ristampe, perché presentava in modo chiaro e leggibile una grande estensione territoriale del Nord Italia, dal Lago Maggiore a Venezia. Molto belle le rappresentazioni in prospettiva delle città: che non sono stereotipi, ma rappresentano una visione "dal vero" della città stessa. Il primo stato del 1556, senza la firma del Luchino, viene da molti considerato una carta anonima. In realtà, appare evidente che la carta sia una prova ante litteram della lastra ed è probabilmente edita a Venezia. Il secondo stato della lastra, quello a firma del Luchino, è invece stampato a Roma nell … [Click Below for Full Description]

Herold (Johannes Basilius), 1514-1567
Basel, Johann Oporinus, 1556. A spectacularly well-preserved monumental multi-block woodcut, printed on twenty-two large sheets, which when properly assembled as seven tiers of three sheets each, with three emblematical woodcuts joined to make the top border, form a picture surface of roughly 5.42 m2 (height × width: 420.5 × 129 cm, 165 × 51 in). Since their publication in 1556 the sheets have been contained in albums and have not suffered from damage caused by rolling or wall-mounting like other known impressions. The print is a family tree of the Wittelsbach dynasty over 1000 years, beginning with the Merovingian King Clovis I (466-511), and culminating with the Elector Palatine Friedrich II (1482-1556), and features 934 half-length portraits and coats of arms. On three sides is an integral border of arabesque ornament with 82 bust-length medallion portraits of Roman and Byzantine emperors and Sultan Suleiman the Great, each cut on a black ground. The wood blocks are signed by six draughtsmen or cutters: Jacob Clauser, David Kandel, Zacharias Specklin, Ieremias Wyssenbach, and two unidentified artists, one signing with the monogram HS with a pen or brush, the other with the monogram C with a cross and pen or brush. The project was begun at the command of Pfalzgraf Friedrich II (died 1556) but only completed at the urgent command of his successor Ottheinrich. Johannes Herold, who was entrusted with the task, published a small explanatory booklet, of which a copy has been bound in.Herold, Johannes Basilius Höchstädt an der Donau 1514 - 1567 Basel Tabula Palatinorum Heroldi … [Click Below for Full Description]
