POLO, Marco
Paris: Jehan Longis, 1556. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to. [20.8 x 14.7 cm]. (10) ff., 123 ff, (1) ff. (printer's device on verso). Bound in modern red crushed morocco, raised bands, spine in six compartments, spine gold tooled and lettered, covers blind tooled, gold-tooled board edges, gold-tooled dentelles, blue ribbon bookmark, red sprinkled edges. Only very minor rubbing corners, bookplate inside upper cover. Title a bit dusty, inscription on title ('Masson'), minor pale spotting to first few leaves, a few minor marginal stains, contemporary signature to f. 80 ('Didier Langreve'?), verso of final leaf a bit dusty. Rare first French edition of the work considered "the first to give anything approaching a correct and detailed account of China and the Far East" (PMM), and perhaps the most influential travel book of all time. This first appearance in French should possibly be linked to topical interest in the wider world: The description of China in Münster's Cosmographia is mentioned in the preface and one should recall that the 1550's saw intensive French exploration and colonization in the Americas. "Marco Polo was a member of a prosperous Venetian family engaged in commerce. He set out with his father and uncle in 1271 on a journey to the East. Starting from Acre the party traveled through Persia and the Upper Oxus to the Pamir plateau, and then through Mongolia and the Gobi Desert to the extreme north-west of China, reaching Shantung in 1275. Here they sojourned at the court of Kublai Khan until 1292, finally arriv … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cicero, Marcus Tullius
Gryphium, Lugduni. 1556. Full vellum wrappers, 12mo, 256pp + index. Binding good with wrapper loose/detached at rear hinge, exposing the original sewing and backing. The wrapper is partially cracked/open along part of the rear joint, with a small tear toward the top, possibly caused by hardening from an old lacquering or varnishing of the spine. The upper edge is chipped but the spine end is fine. There is an old adhesive remainder toward the bottom of the spine. The vellum appears to have been written on at some point, though the evidence of this is faint. Internally, the book is in very good condition with a light tidemark to upper corner of the last 40 or so pages, otherwise bright and clean. There is a nice printer's device on the title page, and the book is nicely printed in general. Contents are unmarked, a very nice copy of this scarce volume. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

GIOVIO, Paolo (1483-1552)
Giordano Ziletti, 1556. In 8°, pp. (16), 236 (i.e. 232). Marca tipografica al frontespizio. Legatura in cartone colorato del XVII secolo, con titolo manoscritto al dorso e sul taglio inferiore. Frontespizio leggermente sporco, ma nel complesso ottima copia. PRIMA EDIZIONE DEL RUSCELLI dell'importante trattato diGiovio (il primo nel suo genere) sulla teoria delle &ldquo,imprese&rdquo,. Questa forma di emblemi personalizzati risale alla metà del XV secolo, con le &ldquo,revers de médailles&rdquo, di Pisanello. L'&ldquo,impresa&rdquo, si presentava essenzialmente nello stesso formato dell'emblema, ma seguiva alcune particolari regole. Fondamentale risultava il legame tra il motto e l'imagine: nessuno dei due elementi, infatti, preso singolarmente rendeva pienamente comprensibile il significato dell'impresa (cf. D. Drysdall, The Emblem according to the Italian 'Impresa' Theorists, in: "The Emblem in Renaissance and Baroque Europe. Tradition and Variety", A. Adams A.J. Harper, eds., Leiden, 1992, pp. 22-32). Il trattato di Giovio apparve per la prima volta a Roma, nel 1555, in una piccola edizione con il titolo &ldquo,Dialogo dell'imprese militari et amorose&rdquo,. "Bisognerà anche ricordare che la suddetta edizione ebbe solo una circolazione limitatissima, presto esaurita e introvabile, mentre gran parte dei lettori contemporanei si servirono dell'edizione procurata da Girolamo Ruscelli per l'editore Ziletti e più volte ristampata a partire dal 1556.. A questo punto val forse la pena di riferire un curioso particolare, finora, credo, non osservato e non inutile per contribuire … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRANCO, Pierre.
Lyon: Antoine Vincent, [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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Beuter, Pere Antoni.
A translation of the author's Primera part de la Història de València, the first edition of which appeared in 1538, written in the Valencian dialect of Catalan. Beuter (ca. 1490-1554), of German origin, was born in Valencia, educated at the university there, and had a successful career as a historian, university professor, and preacher.The work at hand was a widely read and respected history of the founding and history of Valencia, and Spain, through the 11th century, with the last chapters having much to say about => El Cid. The translation is the work of Alfonso de Ulloa, who translated a number of important Spanish texts into Italian. Gabriel Giolito, the most prolific printer in Italy during the 16th century, printed about 850 books from the date of founding his press in 1539 to his death in 1578; he exercised great influence on his contemporaries and successors in the form and decoration of books. This work is printed in his italic type, has a woodcut printer's device on title-page and a different one on the verso of final leaf, woodcut head- and tail-pieces, and decorative and historiated woodcut initials. The preliminary matter contains => a double-page woodcut map of Spain. A curious aspect of the text is the claim that Spaniards fleeing the Moorish invasion settled in America in the Yucatan!=> What a fable! Provenance: 17th-century private ownership stamp on title of a heart surrounding the letters COP; late 20th- and early 21st-century bookplate of Kenneth Rapoport.

Vincenzo LUCHINI (Attivo a Roma 1552- 1566)
1556. 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.

Reformation, Zensur, Capodistria, Slowenien - Vergerio, Pietro Paolo:
Tübingen, (Ulrich Morhart d. Ä.), 1556. - 4°, circa 20,5 x 14,8 cm. 40 Blatt, das letzte weiss - Widmung (drei Blatt, A2-A4) in Kopie! Neuerer Halblederband "VD16 V 675; nicht bei Adams; Kuczynski 3660: "Sehr selten". Abhandlung über die Papstwahl und verschiedene Riten, das Pallium u.a., angeblich nach einer in der Vatikanischen Bibliothek geheim gehaltenen Handschrift. Der Autor Vergerio (1498-1565) stammte aus Capodistria (heute Koper in Slowenien), war zunächst römisch-katholischer Priester und sogar Bischof seiner Heimatstadt, trat dann aber zum evangelischen Glauben über und veröffentlichte zahlreiche kritische Schriften gegen die katholische Kirche. - "Vergerio (1497-1564), bishop and dignitary of the Roman Catholic Church, employed by Paul III on many diplomatic embassies where on one occasion he met Luther and Bugenhagen, was one of the dissidents who converted to Protestantism later in life. He spent the later part of his days in Germany, Switzerland, Poland, and other countries. His open break with the Curia came in 1546; since that time, he published numerous polemic writings, criticizing origin and policy of the Papacy, the cult of Saints, etc. This present work, apparently written in Wuerttemberg where he enjoyed the hospitality and the confidence of Duke Christoph, is not polemic in tone. He tries to give an unbiased report on the institution of the Papacy, the Pope's ordination and consecration, the Pope's 'Convivium' with the cardinals, and the sacred powers of the Pallium. He claims secret knowledge for his information: a note on the title says that it is … [Click Below for Full Description]
