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.

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]

(TOBACCO)
192 printed leaves of permission forms, four to a leaf. Folio (380 x 250 mm.), cont. vellum over boards (ties largely gone & upper cover somewhat stained), traces of title in ink on upper cover. An extremely rare survival which provides valuable information concerning the thriving tobacco trade which took place in Agenais, a county in the southwest of France, at the beginning of the 18th century. This is a register of sales permission forms, of which there are four per leaf. For every sale made, one of these printed forms had to be completed. Around two-thirds of the forms have been filled out by hand by various tobacco merchants. Tobacco was introduced to France in 1556 where it was initially cultivated without much regulation. One of the production centers was the Clairac area in Agenais, where tobacco consumption became extremely popular. Recognizing the commercial benefits of the crop, Louis XIV took control of the tobacco industry in 1674 and established a monopoly over sales within France. A second law, decreed in 1681, required royal authorization for the cultivation of tobacco. On the free front endpaper, the owner, whose name we are unable to decipher, has written a 13-line explanation of this register as a record for the Bureau of Tonneins. Each printed form reads: "Je soussigné [name] Habitant de la Paroisse de [Tonneins] reconnois que des tabacs que je recüilliray cette année sur la quantité de [x boxes/pounds] de Terre; il m'a été permis de vendre les bonnes à ceux qui ont la permission du Fermier de les acheter, & de filer les moyennes en exprés & celles de re … [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).

Athenagoras, & Girolamo Falletti, trans.
[Paolo Manuzio, i.e., Aldine Press], 1556. Sole Aldine edition of any work by or attributed to this second-century Christian apologist, and the first edition of this text in any vernacular language. De resurrectione mortuorum is the first complete exposition of the doctrine in Christian literature on the perpetuation of the life of body and soul. Scholars have questioned whether De resurrectione is by Athenagoras, suggesting it is from the pen of some unidentified 4th-century author: They have noted the use of at least one term not widely known before the time of Origen. The translation is by Girolamo Falletti (ca. 1518-64) who adds his oration on the birth of Christ. The publisher, identified by Renouard as Paolo Manuzio, is not given on title-page and the book has no colophon. => The text is handsomely printed, with wide margins. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

DE DAMHOUDER JOOST
Antuerpiae, apud Ioannem Bellerum, 1556. Cm. 16, pp. (9) 567 (99). Numerosi capilettera e decine di magnifiche illustrazioni xilografiche a piena pagina raffiguranti scene di reati, torture, processi e esecuzioni delle sentenze di condanna. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con titoli ms. al dorso. Antica firma di possesso al frontespizio e alcune annotazioni marginali di mano coeva. Legatura consolidata e sguardie rinnovate; tracce di polvere e piccole abrasioni restaurate al frontespizio, aloni sparsi (più evidenti nella parte iniziale), macchiette sparse, peraltro esemplare in buono stato di conservazione. Joos de Damhouder (1507-1581), celebre giurista nativo di Bruges, fu magistrato e poi alto funzionario delle finanze dei Paesi Bassi sotto il dominio asburgico. Quest'opera, anche grazie allo straordinario apparato iconografico, godette di straordinaria fama e divenne una delle pratiche criminali più diffuse del Cinquecento. La storiografia dopo circa tre secoli dall'uscita a stampa, ha messo in dubbio la paternità, avanzando l'ipotesi che Damhouder plagiò un'opera inedita del giurista quattrocentesco Filips Wielant. Celebri sono i paragrafi dedicati ai processi alle streghe e alle diverse tipologie di tortura. Edizione rarissima, non censita in Iccu e Sapori. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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]

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.

Quelques restaurations discrètes mais un très bel exemplaire.
