        Antiquitatum Romanarum Pauli Manutii Liber de Legibus

      Bernard Turrisan, Paris 1557 - 8vo. pp. 288. Roman letter, privilege and index in italic. Large Aldine anchor device on title, woodcut initials, occasional early marginalia. Lower outer corner of t-p a little frayed. Very small, light dampstain to outer margin of last two quires, touching a few letters of text. A good copy in near-contemporary vellum, edges speckled red. 2 earlier ms. notes to t-p (in Latin in blank portions of title), the longer apparently a punning epitaph on one ‘Ludovicus Flamen’ ‘flamen obiit.caelo vivit.’ the hand is North-West European mid to late 16th Century; ‘Flamen’ was a surname often used by Flemings resident in France at this period. 17th Century ms ex-libris on front pastedown, ‘Ex libris M. Nic. le Bachelier.’ The Parisian reprint of the first edition, first issue (appearing in the same year) of an interesting work on ancient Roman law, intended to inaugurate Manutius’ monumental work on the antiquities of Rome. During his lifetime, Manutius published this section on law, and after his death appeared ones on the Senate (1581), the Comitia (1585), and the Roman state and its political institutions. the posthumous editions were the work of his son, Aldus Manutius the younger (1547-1597). Bernard turrisan was the grandson of Andrea Torresani, the father in law of Aldus, and used the Aldine device as his trademark on the title pages of his publications; he worked in Paris between 1554 and 1571. Most of the books published under his imprint were printed by Federic Morel. BM STC Fr. 300; Renouard 279:9; Adams M-475; Graesse IV, 375. Latin [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lebendige Bilder gar nach aller Keysern von C. Iulio Caesare bisz auff Carolum V und Ferdinandum seinem Bruder verhaftet

      Gillis Coppens van Diest, Antwerp 1557 - THE EARLIEST GERMAN CHIAROSCURO FIRST EDITION THUS. Folio. ff [xx] 155 [iii]. Roman letter, 133 magnificent, full-page portrait medallions in strong impression, coloured in several shades of ochre or brown. Slight worming to pastedown. In C17 German speckled sheepskin, gilt arms of Johann Georg Freiherr von Pichelstorff und Altenburg on covers, spine richly gilt in six compartments with raised banks, joints and corners slightly rubbed, a few small repairs, all edges speckled. An unusually handsome copy of the FIRST EDITION in German of the FIRST BOOK with illustrations by the chiaroscuro process - the original Latin edition appeared earlier the same year. This splendid book is also the first in which a combination of etched plates and wood blocks are used in 133 large portrait medallions (plus 16 empty frames for portraits Goltzius never completed). The blocks are said to have been cut by Josse Gietleughen of Courtrai. Goltzius (1526 - 1583) himself was a painter and engraver as well as a numismatist, with a passion for the remains of antiquity - the present work was the product of 12 years of study in Antwerp. Uniting these strands to produce a landmark in the history of book production, the illustrations remain dramatic and striking to this day. The German text is the rarest of the versions which appeared more or less simultaneously (aliter Latin, Italian and Spanish), and the portrait colour, which varies amongst them, tends towards a deep terracotta which is particularly pleasing. This copy is also free from the heavy show-through to the reverse of the portraits which spoils the work. In 1726 Johann Georg Freiherr von Pichelstorff und Altenburg built a castle at Dross in the vast forest expanse called Waldviertel, Lower Austria. There he kept a considerable library of 17th- and early-18th-century illustrated books relating to festivals, architecture and history, of which this was apart. The castle still stands today. "Un beau receuil des portraits des emperors romains, véritable monument artistique et historique, dans lequel une vaste érudition illustre l'habileté du graveur". Bib. Belg. G 381. "The first use of the copper plate in connection with blocks engraved with chiaroscuro printing and also the first appearance in any form of the chiaroscuro as book illustration".

        In Procli Diadochi duo de viginti argumenta De mundi aeternitate. Opus varia multiplicique philosophiae cognitione refertum.

      Lugduni: [colophon: Nicolaus Edoardus Campanus] Folio (33.5 cm, 13.15"). 295, [3 (blank)] pp. (lacking final blank f. only).. 1557 Uncommon first edition of this translation: Neoplatonic philosophy, translated by Joannes Mahotius into Latin from the original Greek. Philoponus (ca. 490?-570 a.d.), also known as John of Alexandria or John the Grammarian, was an opponent of Aristotelian physics; the present item defends the tenets of Christian creationism against the arguments of Proclus, an Athenian Neoplatonist and Philoponus's mentor. Contemporary vellum, darkened and worn, spine with later hand-inked paper labels; front joint starting from top and bottom, with vellum lost over lower outer corners, across spine bands, and over spine extremities. Front pastedown with (upside down!) bookplate of a 19th-century collector; front pastedown and free endpaper with early inked numerals and notations. Title-page stained and showing traces of old (arrested) mildew, with printer's device partially hand-colored in pale yellow; verso of title-page with faint old library-style shelf number; in text, a few corners dog-eared. Waterstaining to upper and outer portions of first 18 ff. and in this section paper brittle with sewing going and some leaves separating. Final leaf (only) lacking (a blank). A compromised copy and priced accordingly, but, as noted, uncommon — and a bit less distressed than the enumeration of faults may suggest.

      (Geneve), H. Estienne, 1557. 8vo. Contemp. full vellum. Remains of ties. A crack to upper part of fronthinge. Endpapers renewed, the work seems to be inserted in a contemporary binding. Handwritten title on spine. Titlepage with some browning and soiling and outer margin frayed. Second leaf with browning to right marin. 208 pp. Text in Greek and latin.. Scarce first edition - editio princeps - of the famous "Apologia", the carefully written plea for justice to the Christians made by a philosopher, on philosophical grounds, to the Emperors Marcus Aurelius and his son Commodus, conquerors, "but above all, philosophers". Athenagoras complains of the illogical and unjust discrimination against the Christians and of the calumnies they suffer, and then meets the charge of atheism. He establishes the principle of monotheism, citing pagan poets and philosophers in support of the very doctrines for which Christians are condemned, and demonstrates the superiority of the Christian belief in God to that of pagans. This first strongly reasoned demonstration of the unity of God in Christian literature is supplemented by an able exposition of the Trinity. Athenagoras was a Christian apologist of the second half of the second century of whom no more is known than that he was an Athenian philosopher and a convert to Christianity. Of his writings there have been preserved but two genuine pieces his "Apology" or "Embassy for the Christians" and a "Treatise on the Resurrection".Adams A-2102. - Dibdin I: 186. - Brunet I:537

Kolophon: "Basileae, Ex Officina Ioannis Operini, Anno Salutis humana M. D. LVII. Mense Martio."); 1 Blatt (schöne, im Vergleich zu der auf den Titeln größere und abgwandelte Druckermarke mit Motto: "INVIA VIRTVTI NVLLA EST VIA."). Ehemals prächtiger blind- und goldgeprägter späterer (England, 18. Jahrhundert ?) Lederband über vier Bünden mit allseitigem Farbschnitt. (38 x 26,5 cm) Gr.4°.. - Inkunabel der Byzantinistik: Der erste übersetzte, editierte und gedruckte Text eines byzantinischen Geschichtsschreibers durch den "Vater der deutschen Byzantinistik" - VD16 J 811. Vergl. GG 270. Der ehemals sehr schöne Einband mit größeren Erhaltungsmängeln. Große Fehlstellen am oberen und unteren Kapital, die Ecken bestoßen, bzw. mit Fehlstellen. Die Deckel mit Kratzspuren, Druckstellen und am hinteren Deckel an einer Stelle angebrochen, sowie mit Wurmlöchern. Anfangs die rechte untere Ecke im weißen Rand mit Wasserspur, der äußere weiße Rand ebenfalls betroffen. Anfangs und am Schluß im Register einige Wurmlöcher. Trotz der beschriebenen Mängel durchaus noch ein stattlicher Band, dem eine behutsame Restaurierung sicher gut anstände. Im ersten Teil wurde die Seite 31 irrtümlich mit 19 paginiert, im 2. Teil die Seite 213 mit 215, im dritten Teil wurden die Seite 21 irrtümlich als 17, Seite 27 als 25 und Seite 231 als 221 paginiert. Sehr schöner, zweispaltiger und zweisprachiger Druck, eingangs jeder neuen Kolumne jeweils eine hübsche, vier bis fünf Zeilen hohe, in Holz geschnittene Schmuckinitiale, zu Beginn der einzelnen Teile sind sie neun bis elf Zeilen hoch. Den Anstoß zur Übersetzung und Herausgabe der Manuskripte des Zonaras gab Hans Dernschwam (1494 - 1568/ 1569), ein humanistisch gebildeter Faktor Anton Fuggers, der in dessen Auftrag 1553 als Begleiter einer kaiserlichen Gesandtschaft in Konstantinopel und Anatolien auf die Jagd nach Manuskripten antiker Autoren gegangen war und quasi als "Beifang" auch solche byzantinischer Geschichtsschreiber mit nach Augsburg brachte. Dernschwam übezeugte seinen Chef Anton Fugger von der Wichtigkeit dieser Manuskripte, der wiederum den ihm verpflichteten Augsburger Humanisten Hieronymus Wolff (1516 - 1580), der als Sekretär und Bibliothekar beim Neffen Hans Jakob Fugger angestellt war, mit einem unwiederstehlichen Angebot zwang, sein eigentliches Lieblingsgebiet, die Übersetzung lateinischer und griechischer Klassiker zu Gunsten der verachteten byzantinischen Geschichtsschreiber zu vernachlässigen und bei Johannes Herbst (= Oporinus) in Basel vorliegendes Werk zu editieren. Die Veröffentlichung ermöglichte Anton Fugger nicht nur durch das fürstliche Salär (372 Gulden !) für Wolff, sondern auch durch Kredite an den Drucker, der ihm dies auf dem Titel auch dankte.

The following two texts are first edition. Text column, 33 lines per column. Absent Brunet. Full brown calf spotted eighteenth. Back with five nerves decorated with a piece of red morocco, caissons and gold jewels. All red edges. Flat upper jaw split over the whole length. Small works to the front cover and the lower tail cap flat. Three corners bumped. Pale foxing. Small to work on the first guard. Both eminent jurist and theologian no less renowned Renaissance, François Baudouin facilitated his studies in a very specific thesis at the junction of two disciplines; it is set out in search of historical sources and true law, particularly the Roman law. His work and his thoughts on the 12 tables of the law are placed in this context. In his other works, Baldwin remains committed to its thesis, seeking in historical and religious foundations of law and the right background. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

A la fois éminent juriste et non moins renommé théologien de la Renaissance, François Baudouin a animé ses études d'une thèse très particulière à la jonction des deux disciplines ; il s'est donc mis en quête des sources historiques et véritables du droit, et particulièrement du droit romain. Son travail et ses réflexions sur les 12 tables de la loi se placent dans cette optique. Dans ses autres ouvrages, Baudouin demeure attaché à sa thèse, cherchant dans les origines historiques et religieuses les fondements des lois et du droit.

        [Title in Greek letters.] Ex Ctesia, Agatharchide, Memnone exerptae historiae, Appiani Iberica. Item de gestis Annibalis

      Geneva: Henri Estienne,, 1557. Omnia nunc primum edita. Cum Henrici Stephani castigationibus. Octavo (161 × 94 mm). Attractive late 18th-century green goatskin, title gilt to the spine, rolled bands, dog and willow tool to the compartments, single fillet panel to the boards, rope-twist gilt edge-roll, all edges gilt, floral roll gilt to the turn-ins, marbled endpapers, pale yellow silk page-marker intact. Greek types. Ineffectually obliterated ownership inscription of the 17th-century lexicographer Robert Sherwood to the title page. A little rubbed, five small, surface worm-holes to the upper board, small paper label at the head of the spine, light browning, som epale damp-staining towards the lower margin, but overall a very good copy. First edition of Estienne's editio princeps of these five Greek histories, including Photius's recension of "On the Erythrean [Red] Sea" by Agatharchides, preceding its appearance in Hoeschel's editio princeps of Photius's Bibliotheca, itself based on a manuscript owned by Estienne, by nearly half a century. "Agatharchides' original text is lost, but extracts and digests of it are found in three later authors: Diodorus Siculus, Strabo and the collection of extracts made by the Byzantine theologian Photius in the ninth century AD … Of these three witnesses … the Photius text is considered closest to the original" (Retso, The Arabs in Antiquity, p. 295): Diodorus extensively altered the text to fit his "distinctive literary style", whereas Strabo's immediate source was not Agatharchides at all but the lost geography by Artemidorus of Ephesus (Burstein, Agatharchides of Cnidus, p. 38). Photius's version is unique in referring to an aromatic plant "which in Arabic (arabistii) is called larimna", a passage found at p. 71 of the present text: if part of Agatharchides's original account, this would be "the earliest reference in history to a language named after the Arabs" and Retso has "no doubt that Photius had a text very close to Agatharchides' original before him". (The Arabs p. 300). "On the Erythrean Sea", an account of an expedition to the west coast of Arabia ordered by Ptolemy II in 280 BC in reaction to Seleucid expansion in the region, has been identified as "the most important source for an almost forgotten chapter in the history of discovery, the exploration of the Red Sea … by the agents of the Ptolemaic government in Egypt … It also contains the earliest extensive account of the geography and ethnography of the coats of northeast Africa and Western Arabia." (Burstein, Agatharchides of Cnidus). Several peoples are identified as "arabes", including the "Nabataoi" (Nabateans), "Thamoudenoi" (Thamud) and "Gasandoi" (Ghassanids). In Strabo and Diodorus's references to "arabes" on the eastern side of the Gulf of Suez, moreover, "we might tentatively recognise the Arabs encountered by Herodotus" (The Arabs, p. 296). Retso further argues that the ethnography of the western Hijaz can be reconstructed by reading Agatharchides alongside Sargon's annals, the Bible's Book of Chronicles and the list of Qeturah's son's in Genesis. An attractive copy of a highly significant early source for the region, which also includes the first separate work on India by Ctesias of Cnidos, and two books by Appian which were not included in Estienne's 1551 edition.

        De arithmetica, musica, geometria: & Proclus de sphaera, Elia Vineto Santone interprete. -

La prima edizione della versione latina del Vineto di questo trattato a metà tra il filosofico e l'ermetico in cui Psellus, una delle figure più brillanti della storia bizantina, esamina la relazione tra aritmetica, geometria, musica e astronomia (edizione originale in greco: Venezia 1532). L?opera, ispirata dagli scritti di Marziano Capella e dalle teorie del tardo neoplatonismo, ebbe a suo tempo molto successo, dovuto certamente allo studio dei rapporti mistici ed ermetici tra i numeri. Adams P - 2205. Roller & G. II, 331. Eitner VIII, 78. Fétis VII, 134. DSB, XI, p. 182 - 6. Smith, Rara Arithmetica, 170: «Psellus was one of the last of the Greek writers on arithmetic. The treatise covers the mediaeval Quadrivium - arithmetic, music, geometry, and astronomy - and is the only late Greek work on arithmetic that attracted attention in the Renaissance period. The arithmetic is merely a primer for the study of Nicomachus.» A scarce translation of this partly philosophical, partly hermetical treatise on the relations between arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy, written by one of the most brilliant figures in Byzantine history. Printer?s device on title and at end, various diagrams and some text woodcuts. Old name on lower blank margin of title, upper margin a little short, and some mild uniform toning of the paper.

Small 8vo., 175 x 105 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss vellum over boards. Lyon: Joannes de Tournes, 1559. |~||~||~||~| First Zurich edition of Strada's chronicle of the Roman emperors from Julius Caesar to Charles V, illustrated with a series of portraits probably by Hans Rudolph Manuel Deutsch and Rudolph Wyssenbach. Since Deutsch and Wyssenbach are known to have cut the very similar medallions for Gessner's fine folio edition of this work in 1559, it seems probable that they also executed these as well. First Edition. The second work is similar in subject matter, but different in style. The portraits are all of distinguished figures in then Ancient World from Aesop to Pythagoras. Jacob Strada (1515-1588), an Italian Antiquary and dealer in Antiquities, medallions and pictures, was "moitie artiste, moitie savant, par-dessus tout fin conaisseur" (Nouvelle Biographie Generale). Armorial bookplate. In general a fine fresh copy in its original binding. Hollstein VI, 202, no. 7 and Mortimer, French 527.

      Third edition, the first in-8 in Basel after two folio published in Paris in 1550 and 1554 for the first text. The following two texts are original edition. Text column, 33 lines per column. Absent Brunet.Full brown calf spotted eighteenth. Back with five nerves decorated with a piece of red morocco, caissons and gold jewels. All red edges. Flat upper jaw split over the whole length. Small works to the front cover and the lower tail cap flat. Three corners bumped. Pale foxing. Small to work on the first guard.Both eminent jurist and theologian no less renowned Renaissance, François Baudouin facilitated his studies in a very specific thesis at the junction of two disciplines; it is set out in search of historical sources and true law, particularly the Roman law. His work and his thoughts on the 12 tables of the law are placed in this context. In his other works, Baldwin remains committed to its thesis, seeking in historical and religious foundations of law and the right background.

        16 handkolorierte Spielkarten aus dem 16. Jahrhundert.

      ohne Ortsangabe, wahrscheinlich Leipzig, o. J. (ev. 1557, ca. Mitte- Ende 16. Jahrhundert).. Kartengrößen ca. 7,5x4,5 cm.. 16 (davon 6 komplett erhaltene) handkolorierte Holzschnitt-Spielkarten aus dem 16. Jahrhundert. Ev. in Leipzig bei Augustin Pfeffer 1557 gedruckt. Den in der Bibliographie von Hoffmann: Altdeutsche Spielkarten auf Seite 144 ff und als farbig illustrierten Wiedergaben auf der Seite 88 ff sehr ähnlich! Dort sind einige Figuren spiegelverkehrt wiedergegeben. Es lassen sich deutliche Ähnlichkeiten bei einigen Spielblättern erkennen! Vergleichbare Motive finden sich auch in Radau/Himmelheber (Katalog des Bay. Nationalmuseums 21), Kapitel: Deutsche Farben, S. 70 ff. Nach Notizen des Vorbesitzers waren die Karten als Bindematerial für das Emblematawerk: ALCIATUS, Liber Emblematum von 1567 verwendet worden! Das "Archaische" der Abbildungen läßt die Karten ziemlich sicher ins 16. Jh. datieren. Nach 1600 werden die Abbildungen filigraner, was nicht zum vorliegenden Kartenbild passt. - Angeschmutzt, Klebspuren und mit einigen Wurmgängen. - Sixteen (6x complete) handcoloured woodcut playing cards, prob. Leipsic, ca. 1560-1590, complete cards each 7,5x4,5 cm. - Tipped onto 2 mounts; soiled, traces of glue, a few wormholes. - Comprises 6 complete cards and 10 damaged playing cards. Strongly resembling (with small variants) Hoffmann, Altdeutsche Spielkarten p.144f and col. ills. on p.88f. According to annotations of the previous owner, the cards were used as binding material for the covers of a copy of A. ALCIATUS, Liber Emblematum (ed. 1567).

        ANTIQUITATUM ROMANARUM PAULI MANUTII. Liber de Legibus. Index rerum memorabilium.

      (Paolo Manuzio) 1557 Testo latino. Opera dedicata al Cardinale Ippolito d'Este. Cm.28x18,3. Carte (3), 1 bianca, LXXX numerate solo al verso, 2. Legatura tardo ottocentesca cartonata con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso e piatti marmorizzati. Al frontespizio l'impresa tipografica aldina con l'ancora con delfino in un festone di frutti e vegetali. Aloni e fioriture diffusi. Restauro all'ultima carta. Esemplare, pur rifilato, a buoni margini. Alcune chiose d'epoca manoscritte. Paolo Manuzio (Venenzia, 1512 - 1574), figlio di Aldo, aveva concepito un opera in quattro parti sulle antichità romane. Di queste solo il presente, dedicato alla legislazione, vide la luce prima della morte dell'umanista, mentre i rimanenti, "De senatu", "De comitiis" e "De civitate Romana" furono pubblicati in seguito. Renouard segnala la presenza di due esemplari pressochè analoghi impressi nello stesso anno, annotandone una differenza solo al verso dell'ultima carta con numerazione romana. L'ipotesi da lui avanzata è che la prima edizione consti, a quella pagina, di 5 righe, mentre la seconda, "plus correcte, et augmentée", di 33, come nel nostro esemplare

        DE SYMMETRIA PARTIUM HUMANORUM CORPORUM LIBRI QUATUOR, E’ GERMANICA LINGUA, IN LATINAM VERSI

      Parisiis, in officina Caroli Perier, 1557. In-4 p. (mm. 307x204), elegante legatura in p. pelle mod., cornici a secco e picc. decoraz. oro ai piatti, dorso a cordoni con fregi e tit. oro, 4 cc.nn., 122 cc.num. (di cui 4, ripiegate: n2 - r1 - r2 e v4 - sono segnate come singole ma contate come doppie nella numerazione). Il vol. è ornato da una bella marca tipografica al frontespizio che raffig. un cavaliere su Pegaso nell?'intento di trafiggere un drago con la lancia e, sullo sfondo, una città; da una pregevole testata e grandi iniziali a grottesche, ed è illustrato nel da 145 figure (corpi umani della grandezza della pagina), da alc. particolari (crani, mani e piedi) e da diagrammmi. Le interessanti illustrazioni sono copie delle silografie originali di Duerer della prima edizione tedesca, Norimberga, 1528. Celebrata ed importante opera. Cfr. Choulant, p. 143 e ss: "Albrecht Duerer (Nuremberg 1471 - 1528), like Leonardo da Vinci, wrote treatises on mathematics, chemistry, hydraulics, anatomy, and other scientific subjects.. He was one of the first artists in Germany who practiced and taught the rules of perspective, which he is said to have learned from Lucas von Leyden.. His book on human proportions was prepared for the press after his death by his lifelong friend Willibald Pirkheimer, and it appeared in October, 1528.. The work is divided into four books. The first two books treat of the proper proportions of the human form and its separate members, according to a constructed scale. He first divides the body into seven parts, each having the same measurement as the head, and he next considers the same divided into eight parts, giving also a separate consideration to the proportions of children. The woman, he considers, ought to be an eighteenth part shorter than man. In his proportions of the female figure he follows, perhaps unwittingly, the celebrated standard of the Venus de' Medici. In his third book he changes these proportions according to mathematical rule, and gives examples of ludicrously fat and thin figures, in which some one proportion is frightfully exaggerated. In the fourth book he shows the human form in movement, and treats especially of foreshortenings..?" - Adams,I, p. 371 - Brunet,II,914 - Cicognara,319: ?"nitidissima edizione?". Leggerm. corto del margine sup.; con qualche lieve alone e uniformi lievi ingialliture ma un buon esemplare.

      Geneva: Henri Estienne,, 1557. Omnia nunc primum edita. Cum Henrici Stephani castigationibus. Octavo (161 × 106 mm). Eighteenth-century speckled calf, title gilt to spine within double fillet panel in second compartment, similar panels containing flower and vase tools to the other compartments, double fillet panel to the boards. Greek types. Erosion on the boards from the sprinkling now stabilised, restoration to head- and tail-caps and joints, light toning, mild damp-stain to the upper, inner quadrant of the text from the rear, overall very good. First edition of Estienne&#39;s editio princeps of these fragmentary Greek historians, including the remnant of Agatharchides&#39; important account of the Red Sea, "On the Erythraean Sea". "Written in the second century BC Agatharchides is the most important source for an almost forgotten chapter of the history of the history discovery, the exploration of the Red Sea and the regions surrounding by the agents of the Ptolemaic government in Egypt &#133; It also contains the earliest extensive account of the geography and ethnography of the coasts of northeast Africa and western Arabia" (Burstein, Agatharchides of Cnidus. On the Erythaean Sea, Hakluyt Society, 1989). Retsö warns of the difficulties of drawing firm inferences concerning "what was reported about Arabs in western Arabia around 280 BC" from the "complicated textual transmission" (The Arabs in Antiquity, p. 295) of Agatharchides, but among the tribes described in some detail the Nabataeans and the Sabaeans can be identified with certainty. Also the text contains a reference to "an aromatic plant which grows in the interior and is called in the language of the Arabs &#39;larimnum&#39;" (Burstein, p. 167), which Retsö notes is "the earliest reference in history to a language named after Arabs" (p.300). The passage is at p. 71 in the present text. An attractive copy of an important early source for the region, which also includes the first separate work on India by Ctesias of Cnidos, and two books by Appian which were not included in Estienne&#39;s 1551 edition.
