AGRICOLA, Georgius (1494-1555).
Basilea, Hermann Froben e Nicolaus Episcopius, 1556. in-folio (mm 317x215), ff. 6 n.n. di cui l'ultimo bianco, 502 pagine mal numerate 538, 36 ff. n.n. Illustrato da due tavole a piena pagina fuori testo. Nel testo 267 illustrazioni silografiche, di cui molte a piena pagina, e numerosi diagrammi incisi su legno. Marca tipografica del Froben incisa su legno - raffigurante un caduceo sorretto da due mani - al frontespizio e al verso dell'ultima carta. Legatura d'inizio del XX secolo in pelle scamosciata verde decorata a secco ai piatti e al dorso. Prima rara edizione di quello che è considerato il primo trattato sistematico di metallurgia, e uno dei primi libri di tecnologia di concezione moderna. Il De re metallica, pubblicato un anno dopo la morte dell'autore, «restò per due secoli l'opera fondamentale e insuperata di tecnica mineraria. Il libro era apparso negli stessi anni in cui le miniere del Centro e del Sud America stavano raggiungendo uno sviluppo prodigioso. Nel Potosì, che fornì oro e argento a tutta Europa, l'opera di Agricola sarà considerata una specie di Bibbia e i preti attaccheranno il De re metallica agli altari delle chiese in modo che i minatori venissero a compiere le loro devozioni ogniqualvolta dovevano risolvere un problema tecnico» (P. Rossi, I filosofi e le macchine: 1400-1700, Milano 2002, p. 65). Georg Bauer - nome che verrà latinizzano in Georgius Agricola - era originario di Glachau in Sassonia e nel 1527 iniziò a esercitare la sua professione di medico a Joachimstal, in Boemia, che al tempo era l'area mineraria più importante d'Europa. Agricola … [Click Below for Full Description]

Impresa tipografica incisa su legno al titolo con Mercurio volante con un piede sul globo e nella mano destra il caduceo entro una cornice figurata con motto "Coelo demissus ab alto".

Qualche alone, arrossatura e traccia d'uso. Piccole bruciature senza lacune testuali alle pp. 47-48 e 81-82. Discreto esemplare. Seconda edizione del volgarizzamento del Gelli della biografia gioviana di Alfonso d'Este, dopo la prima del 1553 del Torrentino; la presente stampa è priva di data, ma l'anno d'edizione, ricavabile dagli anni in cui la tipografia di Giovanni Rossi fu attiva a Venezia, è da collocarsi tra il 1556 e il 1559. L'opera è importante soprattutto come fonte di storia militare. STC Italian, p. 303. EDIT16 CNCE 21208. Non in Adams. Italiano

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]

PLINIUS SECUNDUS, Gaius.
Adams P-1556; BMC German, p. 704; Durling 3689 (imperfect copy); Hunt 23. First edition of Pliny's Natural history as edited by Johannes Caesarius (1468-1550), a humanist and close friend of Erasmus. Pliny's Natural history is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman Empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available at the time. It encompasses the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy, geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Pliny's accounts of some technical advances are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing (using water to wash away soil) in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding grain. Archaeological excavations have confirmed much of what he wrote. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf ... Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls ... [He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised ... The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 contains a chapter giving the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. With bookpla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contents: printed rectos only, folio [1] title, [2-23] woodcuts from Terence, [24] cut of two dogs, [25-26] hunting scenes with dogs, [27] nymphs & satyrs, [28] Ulysses and Circe, [29] Venus, [30] shepherds, [31-36], Moon, Mercury, Sun, Mars, Saturn, Jupiter, [37-45] "physionomie" heads, [46] "Triomphi" divisional cut, [47-48] "physionomie" heads, [49-54] "Triomphi" oval sectional cuts, [55-63] seven cuts from Bouchet's Angoisses, and two from San Pedro's Arnaulte. Modern brown morocco, sides with central gilt arabesque, all edges gilt, by Masson-Debonnelle. Provenance: purchased from Tulkens, 1962. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION, complete with sixty-two woodcuts. An extraordinary set of illustrations, most of which are attributable to Bernard Salomon, from the stock of the Lyons printer Jean de Tournes. Cartier, who had never seen a complete copy, suggested that the volume was probably intended to serve as an Album Amicorum as there is no text and a large space beneath each of the cuts. The twenty-two stage designs are known only from this edition and the reissue of the following year. They were most likely intended for an unrealized edition of Terence. Other cuts identifiable from the de Tournes stock are: two cuts from Maurice Scève's La Savlsaye 1547 (Mortimer 485); eighteen cuts from Jean Indragine's Chiromance (Mortimer … [Click Below for Full Description]

PLINIUS SECUNDUS, Gaius.
Adams P-1556; BMC German, p. 704; Durling 3689 (imperfect copy); Hunt 23. First edition of Pliny's Natural history as edited by Johannes Caesarius (1468-1550), a humanist and close friend of Erasmus. Pliny's Natural history is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman Empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available at the time. It encompasses the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy, geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Pliny's accounts of some technical advances are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing (using water to wash away soil) in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding grain. Archaeological excavations have confirmed much of what he wrote. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf ... Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls ... [He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised ... The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 contains a chapter giving the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. With bookpla … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Nel 1444 vengono divulgati gli Elegantiarum libri sex (i sei libri sull'eleganza della lingua latina), pubblicati peré postumi nel 1471. L'opera raccoglie una serie straordinaria di passi desunti dai pié celebri scrittori latini (Publio Virgilio Marone, Cicerone, Livio), dallo studio dei quali, sostiene Valla, occorre codificare i canoni linguistici, stilistici e retorici della lingua latina. Il testo costitué la base scientifica del movimento umanista impegnato a riformare il latino cristiano sullo stile ciceroniano. La sua opera si basa su una profonda padronanza della lingua latina e sulla convinzione che sia stata proprio un'insufficiente conoscenza del latino la vera causa del linguaggio ermetico ed ambiguo di molti filosofi. Valla é convinto che l'uso corretto della lingua sia l'unico mezzo di comunicazione ed acculturazione: la grammatica ed un appropriato modo di esprimersi stanno alla base di ogni enunciato e, prima anc … [Click Below for Full Description]

MACROBIUS, Ambrosius Aurelius Theodosius (fl. circa A.D. 395-425)
Saturnaliorum, lib. VII. Ex uarijs, ac uetustissimis codicibus recogniti, & aucti. Uniform title: Commentarii in Somnium Scipioni. Lvgdvni [Lyon] : apvd Seb. Gryphivm, 1556. Octavo, contemporary binding dated 1560 of blind-embossed pigskin over wooden boards, two engraved metal clasps, a little rubbed but overall very good, title page with printer's device with motto "Virtute duce, comite fortuna", pp. 567; [73]; illustrated with diagrams and map, woodcut initials, marginal notes; internally clean, a fine copy. Text in Latin with quotations and examples in Greek. A mid-sixteenth century edition of the Roman fifth century writer Macrobius' hugely influential commentary on Cicero's In somnium Scipionis (The dream of Scipio), published in Lyon by Sebastian Gryphius (1493-1556). Cicero's work, the sixth book of De re publica, describes a fictional dream vision of the Roman general Scipio Aemilianus, set in the period immediately prior to the destruction of Carthage in 146 B.C.. The commentary of Macrobius, in essence a philosophical discourse on the nature of the cosmos which promotes the paradigm of a spherical earth, first appeared in print in Venice in 1472. However, the 1483 Brescia edition was the first to contain Macrobius' world map, one of the earliest printed maps to depict the world as a globe. This map, retained in subsequent editions (including the 1556 Gryphius) is also of immense importance because it shows the hypothetical Antipodes - Terra Australis Incognita. The existence of such a landmass was posited by Macrobius on the basis that it provided the earth with … [Click Below for Full Description]
