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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

PEPYS (Samuel) ORDER OF THE HOSPITALLS:
[title continues] By the Maior, Cominaltie, and Citizens of London, Governeurs of the Possessions, Revenues and Goods of the sayd Hospitalls,1557. [London n.p., n.d. 1695?] 8vo. 116p. [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]

Der Text des Tacitus spielte eine herausragende Rolle in dem Prozess der Herausbildung eines deutschen Patriotismus, der sich besonders von Rom und dem Papst absetzen wollte. Die Idealisierung eines unverdorbenen Germanentums gegenüber der römischen Dekadenz, wie Tacitus sie ausführt, kam schon dem Kreis um Celtis sehr gelegen, als es noch darum ging, eigene Leistungen gegenüber dem italienischen Humanismus herauszustellen. Durch die Reformation nördlich der Alpen, bekam der Gegensatz dann nochmals eine besondere Qualität. Die beiden hier versammelten Ausgaben mit ihren Beitexten dokumentieren das Erwachen eines neuen Nationalgefühls, das auch vielfache historische und geographische Forschungen inspirierte. - Mehrere alte Anmerkungen und Stempel, wenige Seiten geknickt, wenige Papierfehler ohne Textberührung, gebräunt, Gelenke von innen … [Click Below for Full Description]

Enc. del siglo XX en medio pergamino, nervios, cortes dorados. *Segunda edición en francés traducida por el matemático, astrónomo y erudito Claude Boissiere. Es idéntica a la primera, publicada un año antes y única versión vernácula de este título. Contiene contribuciones significativas en el campo de las mediciones y la navegación. La primera parte se centra en la descripción del globo y ofrece explicaciones prácticas en el ámbito de la geografía y la astronomía. Destaca especialmente el capítulo XVIII (Nouvelle invention pour les longitudes), del que incluso M. 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. La segunda describe el uso del anillo astronómico, un instrumento que se revelaría caudal para los navegantes de los dos siglos siguientes. El anillo astronómico de Gemma se compone de cuatro círculos, entre ellos un meridiano y un ecuador. Gemma expone los usos de su anillo para determinar la hora y resolver problemas de altimetría.

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.

U.a. mit Kapiteln über: Wunder, Botanik, Zoologie, Anthropologie, Physik, Astronomie, Edelsteine, Geographie, Handwerk und Technik, Astrologie, Okkultismus, Wahrsagerei und Magie. - Cardanus (1501-1576), der berühmteste Arzt seiner Zeit, versucht der Medizin eine von der galenischen und hippokratischen Tradition unabhängige wissenschaftliche Grundlage zu geben. 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.

Philoponus, Joannes Grammaticus.
Lugduni: [colophon: Nicolaus Edoardus Campanus], 1557. Folio (33.5 cm, 13.15"). 295, [3 (blank)] pp. (lacking final blank f. only). 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.         Adams P1062; Brunet, III, 544. 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.

ALVARES, Francisco
Antwerp Juan Steelsius 1557. Rare first Spanish-language edition of one of the earliest comprehensive reports on Ethiopia available to Europeans: "incomparably more detailed than any earlier account of Ethiopia that has survived, it is also a very important source for Ethiopian history, for it was written just before the country was devastated by the Muslim Somali and pagan Galla invasions of the second quarter of the 16th century" (Hakluyt Society I.12). The work appears on all four 16th-century book lists employed in the influential exhibit, Europe Informed, which identified in a historically controlled way the most widely disseminated early travel accounts informing 16th-century Europeans about Asia and Africa. The account is the fruit of an embassy made by the author in connection with the search for eastern Christians. The journey had roots in the medieval legend of Prester John, a mythical King whose vast domains contained wondrous panaceas and who was, to boot, a Christian. The legend proved a well-known stimulus to European exploration, and just as importantly provided Catholic Europe with an influential eschatological fantasy: reunited with their long-lost eastern brethren, they would finally subdue Islam or, in a later generation, Protestants, etc. Although the work is much concerned with the activity and structure of the Eastern Church, the fact that Alvares recognizes Ethiopians as equals paradoxically makes him more observant, and the work contains much information about agriculture, natural history (wildlife and the terrible locusts), the curious architectural … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was born at Moderna and held professorships at Venice, Padua, and Bologna. "... he was unquestionably one of the first classical antiquaries of his time, and a man of great judgement as well as learning, very correct and deep in researches, and of most unwearied diligence." [Chalmers.] "In 1555, while still at Venice, he published his folio edition of Livy and his Fasti Consulares, with an ample commentary on the latter in the following year. The last two works were the first in which accurate criticism was applied to the chronology of Roman history." [Sandys] This volume collects Sigonio's scholarly notes on Livy, Cicero, Hemogenes, etc., along with one of his attacks on Francesco Robortelli with whom he had a long running feud. Renouard 172.
