Rückenschild, Vorsatz etwas wurmlöchrig, einige Marginalien von alter Hand Preis in CHF: 495. Die EA erschien 1525 in Venedig. Pietro Bembo (1470 -1547), italienischer Humanist und Kardinal. Er war für seine meisterhafte Beherrschung der lateinischen Sprache bekannt, seine Zeitgenossen betrachteten seinen Stil als vorbildlich. Wegweisend war seine Theorie der italienischen Literatursprache. Sie trug dazu bei, dass der "Sprachenstreit" um die Frage, welche Variante des Italienischen sich am besten als Literatursprache eigne, zugunsten des Toskanischen entschieden wurde.

Während seines Theologiestudiums erlebte er 1518 Martin Luther in der Disputation in Heidelberg. Nach seiner Heirat mit der Schwester des Malers Barthel Behaim versuchte er sich als Buchdrucker. Ab 1534 betrieb er neben seiner theologischen Schriftstellerei in Ulm eine Buchdruckerei und kommt durch seine historischen und theologischen Schriften, die sich gut verkaufen, zu Wohlstand. In der 'Goldenen Arch' interpretiert Franck, sprachgewaltig, verschiedene Bibelstellen zu verschiedenen Themen: "Von Gott, Von Christo, Von dem hailigen Gaist, Von dem hailigen und Engeln, Von Teuffeln und bösen Gaystern, Von der Seel, Von dem natürlichen Menschen, Von dem Freyen willen." In seinen Schriften setzte er sich für religiöse Toleranz ein und gegen die Verfolgung Andersgläubiger. In seinem literarischen und theologischen Schaffen verstand er sich in der Tradition des Erasmus von Rotterdam. Er suchte keine Anhänger und wollte keine religiöse Bewegung gründen. - Der Berner Buchdrucker Samuel Apiarius übernahm 1554, nach dem Tode seines Vaters, dem ersten Buchdrucker der Stadt, die Druckerei.

HERODOT (HERODOTUS - HERODOTOS)
Basel, Herwagen & Brand 1557.. Folio. (10) Bll., 310 Ss., (1) Bl. Mit einer großen Holzschnitt-Initiale ( Bl. ?1 r) und Holzschnitt-Druckermarke (letztes Bl. verso). Blindgepreßter Schweinslederband d. Zt. (etwas fleckig und leicht aufgebogen, Rückendeckel mit kleiner Fehlstelle und einer defekten Ecke) mit Datum (1563), Monogramm ("DH") und handgeschr. Rückentitel; ohne Bindebänder. Dritte bzw. vierte Ausgabe der griechischen Originaltexte, die jeweils zweite bei Herwagen. Herodot aus Halikarnassos (ca. 485 - 424 v. Chr.) - von Cicero als "Vater der Geschichtsschreibung" bezeichnet - verfasste sein Geschichtswerk überwiegend auf der Basis mündlicher Überlieferung und eigenen Erlebens; schriftliche Quellen hat man so gut wie keine festmachen können. Neben der eigentlichen historischen Darstellung (v.a. der Perserkriege) hat sein Werk durch zahlreiche ethnographisch -geographische Exkurse auch zur außergriechischen Welt große Bedeutung; bei ausgedehnten Reisen hat er sich offenbar umfangreiche Kenntnisse angeeignet. In seiner religiösen Grundhaltung, in der die Bestrafung menschlicher Hybris durch die Götter ein immer wiederkehrendes Motiv darstellt, ist er Sophokles verwand, mit dem ihn auch eine persönliche Freundschaft verband. Bei aller Sympathie für das Griechentum bewahrte er doch sachliche Distanz und bemühte sich um vorurteilsfreie Beschreibung fremder Völker. Die editio princeps erfolgte 1502 bei Aldus, die nächste Ausgabe erschien 1541 bei Herwagen, gefolgt von der vorliegenden. Plethon (= Georgios Gemistos, 1360 - 1452), bayzantinischer Philosoph, versuchte auf de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Antonio SALAMANCA (Salamanca 1478 ? Roma 1562)
Raro documento raffigurante l?asedio di Civitella. Nel 1557 la città fu posta d'assedio da parte del francese Duca di Guisa, generale di Enrico II e alleato del papa, Paolo IV; benché feroce e violento, l?assalto non riuscì a espugnare la città,. Proprio in questa guerra, tra Francesi e Spagnoli, Civitella cambiò il suo nome in Civitella del Tronto. La vittoriosa e valorosa resistenza che il popolo della cittadella riuscì a riportare venne ben visto nell'intero Regno, tanto che ai suoi cittadini furono tolti gli oneri fiscali da pagare al Regno, per quarant'anni, e a spese del demanio regio furono restaurati gli edifici e la Fortezza. La mappa viene prodotta a Roma, probabilmente nella bottega di Antonio Salamanca e Antoine de Lafrery, che dal 1553 al 1563 erano soci nella più importante calcografia romana. La lastra viene sicuramente ralizzata in occasione dell?avvenimento, quindi nel 1557, probabilmente commissionata da autorità ecclesiastiche, oppure nel tentativo commerciale dei due editori di produrre un nuvo foglio da immettere nel mercato. La mancata vittoria nell?assedio indusse i due editori a non terminare il lavoro, come dimostrano i numerosi ripensamenti presenti nella lastra e lo spazio bianco in basso a destra, lasciato libero per il titolo e la dedicatoria. Il foglio risulta pertanto in un solo stato e molto raro. Incisione al bulino, rifilata al rame e con margini coevi aggiunti, pieghe di carta al centro, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rarissima.

Seneca, Lucius Annaeus
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition (?). 1. Vellum Hardcover. Bound in contemporary vellum boards. 4to (approx 9 x 12.5"). (xvi), 761, (15 index) pp. IN LATIN. Edgewear, some very old tape repairs to boards. Titles in ink in a contemporary hand. On upper board ("L. Annaei Senecae | Opera omnia | (Basileae 1557) ") and spine ("L. Annaei Senecae Opumn") Very old damp-stain on rear board not affecting text block. Very light foxing throughout. Pages quite supple. One line of text written and then crossed out on title page. VERY GOOD. This is an extremely rare copy of the complete works of Seneca printed in Basel in 1557 by Johannem Hervagium and Bernardum Brandun. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC-AD 65) was a Roman philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. Tacitus gives an account of the suicide of Seneca in his book, the Annals, in Book XV, Chapter/Number 60 through 64. Works attributed to Seneca include a satire, a meteorological essay, philosophical essays, 124 letters dealing with moral issues, and nine tragedies. Seneca's brand of Stoic philosophy emphasized practical steps by which the reader might confront life's problems. Johannem Hervagium (Johannes Hervagius) was Swiss publisher active in the period approximately 1528 through 1561, who published authoritative texts of many classical authors. EXTREMELY RARE. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall

Battista ANGOLO del Moro (Attivo a Verona e Venezia nella seconda metà del XVI secolo)
Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1557, firmata in basso a destra. Esemplare nel probabile secondo stato di due, con la data 1565 e l?indirizzo di Ferrando Bertelli. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, irregolarmente rifilata al rame, piccola macchia di inchiostro nella parte sinistra, per il resto in perfetto stato di conservazione. L?opera non è inserita in nessuna delle bibliografie consultate, ed è da me attribuita per evidenti motivi stilistici a Battista Angolo. Evidenti sono i riscontri con l?altro ritratto da lui eseguito intorno al 1555, quello di Enrico II, Re di Francia (Bartsch 28). Il ritratto raffigura padre Jean de La Vallette-Parisot , il quarantanovesimo Gran Maestro del Sovrano Ordine di San Giovanni di Gerusalemme, da cui il nome della capitale di Malta, nominato nel 1557 per difendere l'isola dagli ottomani. Probabile che il ritratto venga realizzato in occasione della sua elezione a Gran Maestro e quindi ristampato nel 1565, anno della resistenza alla flotta turca, per motivi economici, data la fama che ne seguì. Tra le opere della tipografia Bertelli, attiva a Venezia dal 1558, troviamo tracce anche di un ritratto di Giovanni da Valletta inciso da Martino Rota, ma non di questa lastra. Opera molto rara. Bibliografia: Non descritta. Dimensioni 140x196. Etching and engraving, circa 1557, signed lower right. Example in the likely second state of two, with the date 1565 and the address of Ferrando Bertelli.

Seneca, Lucius Annaeus
Ioannem Hervagium et Bernardum Brandun, Basel, 1557. Very Good with no dust jacket. Vellum Hardcover. Bound in contemporary vellum boards. 4to (approx 9 x 12.5"). (xvi), 761, (15 index) pp. IN LATIN. Edgewear, some very old tape repairs to boards. Titles in ink in a contemporary hand. On upper board ("L. Annaei Senecae | Opera omnia | (Basileae 1557) ") and spine ("L. Annaei Senecae Opumn") Very old damp-stain on rear board not affecting text block. Very light foxing throughout. Pages quite supple. One line of text written and then crossed out on title page. VERY GOOD. This is an extremely rare copy of the complete works of Seneca printed in Basel in 1557 by Johannem Hervagium and Bernardum Brandun. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC-AD 65) was a Roman philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. Tacitus gives an account of the suicide of Seneca in his book, the Annals, in Book XV, Chapter/Number 60 through 64. Works attributed to Seneca include a satire, a meteorological essay, philosophical essays, 124 letters dealing with moral issues, and nine tragedies. Seneca's brand of Stoic philosophy emphasized practical steps by which the reader might confront life's problems. Johannem Hervagium (Johannes Hervagius) was Swiss publisher active in the period approximately 1528 through 1561, who published authoritative texts of many classical authors. EXTREMELY RARE. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall

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.

[A]4 (-[A]1), B-H8 (-H8.) - collates exactly as called for in ESTC on-line. Printed in black letter. Contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked retaining the original end leaves and paste-downs. A fine copy. * Wing O 389; Krivatsky p.723; Pepys Library p.131. * A major book on the early history of London. This book contains the first printing of the sixteenth-century statues of the London hospitals. Tradition has it that it was published at the instigation of Samuel Pepys. It must be remembered that hospitals in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were much broader institutions, of more general use, than that implied by the modern definition of places for the reception and treatment of the sick. They were charitable houses erected to provide a range of benefits the poor: schools, places of apprenticeship for poor children, workhouses, prisons, places of resort for the old and disabled as well as lying-inn hospitals and places for the sick and diseased. D'Arcy Power in "Notes on the bibliography of three sixteenth-century English books connected with London Hospitals" (The Library, 4th series) also Foundations of Medical History, 1931, p.124-8, observed of this book: "a casual examination of the book shows no reason to doubt the statement of the year 1557 made on the title page". The clue to the real date of publication is the name "Goodfellow" at the end of the minutes of the 5th printe … [Click Below for Full Description]

La primera parte se centra en la descripción del globo y ofrece explicaciones prácticas en el ámbito de la geografía y la astronomía.

Delambre reconoce el mérito (véase Histoire de l?astronomie du Moyen Age, París, 1819) en el que hace referencia a los relojes portátiles como instrumento para medir longitudes.

Buon esemplare. Terza edizione di questo celebre libro di imprese, apparsa appena due anni dopo l'edizione originale. Il testo del Giovio occupa le pp. 1-88; quello del Domenichi le pp. 89-144. Fra i principali trattati di imprese del Rinascimento italiano, composti tra l’agosto e il settembre del 1551, strutturato in forma di dialogo tra l'autore e Ludovico Domenichi, fu pubblicato postuma a Roma per Antonio Barré nel 1555, con dedica a Cosimo de’ Medici. Esso subì rimaneggiamenti, censure e interpolazioni da parte dei curatori, soprattutto il Ruscelli, che addirittura la arricchì di alcune aggiunte, ma, nonostante tali interventi, conobbe ampia fortuna, come testimoniano le numerose citazioni di quasi tutti i trattatisti di imprese, da Scipione Ammirato a Emanuele Tesauro.

Durch seine Horoskope für gekrönte Häupter erlangte er großes Ansehen. Als Mathematiker führt er vermutlich die ersten Berechnungen mit komplexen Zahlen durch und entwickelt die Grundlagen der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie. Er beschreibt erstmals das nach ihm benannte "Kardangelenk" bzw. die "Kardanwelle". Für die Chemie bedeutend ist seine Theorie der Verbrennungsvorgänge, mit der er die Grundlagen für die spätere Phlogistontheorie legt. Als Naturphilosoph vertritt er die kosmogonische Vorstellung und versucht die Koexistenz von christlicher Glaubensgewissheit und Wahrheit wissenschaftlicher Forschung zu beweisen.

Philoponus, Joannes Grammaticus.
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.
