Sebastiano dal Re
Magnifico esemplare della rarissima pianta di Vicovaro pubblicata in occasione della battaglia del febbraio 1557. In alto a destra, in un riquadro, è inciso il titolo: IL VERO DISEGNO DI VICOVARO OCCUPATO DA IMPERIALI ET RECUPERATO DALLA CHIESA A DI XIIII FEBRARO M.D.LVII. Nell’angolo in basso a sinistra si trova la firma dell’incisore della lastra Sebastianus .f. che identifica Sebastiano dal Re. Opera priva di scala grafica e orientazione. Acquaforte e bulino, dimensioni mm 270x387. Veduta prospettica, di Vicovaro assediata (1557), vista da occidente firmata in lastra Sebastianus .f. Nel 1556 la cittadina fu presa dal Duca d’Alba, vicerè di Napoli, alleato dei Colonna contro papa Paolo IV; tornò alla Chiesa nell’anno successivo, il 14 febbraio, dopo una cruenta battaglia. L’attribuzione della lastra a Sebastiano dal Re è rigettata da Destombes, seguito dalla Borroni Salvadori e, più recentemente, da Alessia Alberti, che identificano il Sebastianus .f. della firma in Sebastiano de Valentinis. Tuttavia, lo stile è evidentemente diverso da quello dell’incisore udinese, mentre l’originaria attribuzione al De Re, che era attivo a Roma proprio in quegli anni, sembra molto più plausibile e congruente. Sebbene priva di indicazioni editoriali la lastra è sicuramente stata in possesso, e quindi anche stampata, da Antonio Lafreri. L’opera, infatti, è compresa tra le "Città & Fortezze" nel catalogo della tipografia Lafreri (1573 circa, n. 82), descritta come "Vicovaro". La matrice venne ereditata da Claudio Duchetti e quindi da Giacomo Gherardi. Possiamo identificare questa lastra co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Musculus, Andreas
(Frankfurt an der Oder, Johann Eichorn), 1557. 4to. (96) pp. Title-page printed in red and black with half-page title woodcut. Modern half snakeskin by J. Franklin Mowery over cloth covers with giltstamped spine label. First edition of this barbed treatise that compares non-Protestant religions with the Lutheran doctrine. - The German theologian Musculus, brother-in-law of Johannes Agricola, was professor at Frankfurt an der Oder. He spent most of his life quarreling with his colleagues, including his teacher Melanchthon, and authored numerous highly polemical works. "Musculus considered it his duty to call out the wickedness and moral corruption of his age; hence the substantial number of brief, popular treatises in which he criticizes lords and nobles, citizens, rich and poor folk alike [.] In the present book, he compares in 27 chapters Muhammad and the Pope (whose doctrines are described in similar terms) with Christ in his divine word and life [.] He goes on to draw parallels between his two antichrists, compared with the truth and divine glory of the Lord, and yet the Arabian prophet is shown in more favourable light than the Pope, whom he cannost abuse enough. A severe censor of morals, Musculus does in fact often hit the nail on the head and evidences much humour, in spite of being sometimes rather coarse and rough. From this booklet a fine anthology of expletives and swearwords might easily be drawn" (cf. Spieker). Notorious also for its lurid title vignette, depicting a massacre of Christian infants by Turkish soldiers. - Paper browned and brownstained as common; … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cet ouvrage "qui a depuis longtemps suscité la curiosité" (Lejeune) se compose d'un titre imprimé dans un riche encadrement historié gravé sur bois, et de 64 vignettes imprimées au recto seulement, les images étant placées assez haut sur la page pour laisser un large espace blanc en dessous. Ces gravures représentent des scènes de théâtre, de chasse, de la vie quotidienne, des portraits, mais aussi des scènes mythologiques, des divinités planétaires ou des allégories. On a formulé plusieurs hypothèses sur la finalité de ce curieux volume, publié sans le moindre texte explicatif et qui reste, encore aujourd'hui, assez énigmatique. Etait-ce un échantillon de gravures destiné à faire la promotion de l'atelier de Tournes et de son graveur de prédilection le "petit Bernard"? Un petit livre d'art destiné aux collectionneurs d'estampes? S'agissait-il d'un "liber Amicorum" dont les espaces blancs devaient être remplis de dédicaces? Ou était-ce un recueil de modèles permettant aux artistes et aux apprentis dessinateurs de s'exercer? En tout état de cause ce livre ravissant qui met singulièrement en valeur les fines gravures de Bernard Salomon, constitue l'une des production les plus originales de la gravure française de la Renaissance. Exemplaire exceptionnel, non rogné et contenant 64 planches (les exemplaires les plus complets n'en contiennent que 63). Etiquette manuscrite du … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

POLYBIUS
Basel: Apud Episcopium Juniorem, 1557. In a very attractive mid-16th century binding, this is a history of republican Rome that had a significant effect almost 2,000 years later on the framers of the U. S. Constitution. Sent to Rome as a hostage, the Greek soldier and statesman Polybius (ca. 200 - ca. 118 B.C.) was befriended by Scipio the Younger and became an adviser to him and a member of his literary circle. Only five of Polybius' 40 books survive intact, those covering all of the First Punic War and part of the Second, down to the dramatic battle of Cannae, as well as various events in Greece. Besides these five books, our edition includes the surviving fragments of books six through 17, covering more episodes of the Punic Wars and Polybius' famous analyses of the Roman constitution and the Roman army. His discourse on the doctrine of the separation of powers was an important influence on Thomas Jefferson--who owned numerous editions of Polybius and bought many copies for friends--and on James Madison, who cites the work in the "Federalist Papers." With his high standards of historical research and his professional knowledge of military strategy, Polybius may be ranked with the best ancient historians. Livy's history, which covers the same years, is more dramatic, but without Polybius, our knowledge of the Punic Wars would be very incomplete. Our copy was bound with the arms Augustus I (1526-86), Elector of Saxony from 1553-86, and those of the Holy Roman Emperor, the Catholic monarch with whom the Lutheran Augustus maintained friendly relations.. 185 x 115 mm.

Capilettera xilografici abitati, fregi tipografici, dedica a stampa del volgarizzatore, il Porcacchi, a Giovan Battista Bottigella. Piccoli restauri alle cerniere. Un'annotazione antica. Lievi bruniture. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione in lingua volgare, molto rara, nonché unica edizione in volgare impressa nel corso del '500. Nei tempi addietro fu molto ricercato questo libricciuolo e pagato assai di più di quello che mostrerebbe di valere per il suo volume. L'Haym lo pose nella Collana Latina e lo qualificò rarissimo. Il suo vero pregio è quello di essere stato per il corso di trecento anni unica versione italiana di quell'antico cosmografo; essendosene vista, per quanto crediamo, una seconda solamente l'anno 1855 (Bongi). Principale compendio geografico delle lettere latine, attinto alle fonti più disparate, il libro di Pomponio Mela, composto nel I secolo, segue le coste mediterranee in senso antiorario. .Anche in questo suo primo sommario i flosculi non mancano, e tutto l'insieme ha un'impronta di enciclopedismo salottiero anche più marcata che non quella dell'opera di Valerio Massimo: respiriamo in pieno il gusto asiano, non ancora avviato alla rovente tensione politica dell'età neroniana (Ettore Paratore).

5 LEFT THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY BLEMISH! Bible leaf collectors know that some leaves are hard to look at and others look as new as the day they left the printing press. The condition of a particular leaf reflects its history and is not an indication of its actual value. Perfect leaves are ones that have seen little or no use over the centuries in contrast to those that are scarred by the ravages of time. Unblemished leaves are unloved leaves because they have had little contact with sinners. Imperfect leaves tell a story. Some are torn and ripped and worn away by excessive use while others have burns or worm holes and still others are water stained by flood and sometimes even tears. Each ugly mark or stain is in fact a beautiful witness to the Word of God, which, "liveth and abideth forever." We offer Bible leaves as we acquire them letting their condition speak for themselves. All our leaves are sold as seen on eBay. You may request additional images and information for any leaf. ONLY FIVE LEFT Choice Leaves, Finer than Gold, from the Word of God Taste and see!

Basle: Heinrich Petrus, March 1557. Folio, woodcut printer's device to title and verso of final leaf, woodcut historiated initials; contemporary white pigskin over wooden boards, blind-tooled to a panelled design, roll-tooled borders including one with images of the psalmist and evangelists, another with humanist medallion portraits (including those of Erasmus, Luther and Melanchthon), spine with four raised bands, later paper label at head giving title in places. First edition: a handsome copy in contemporary monastic pigskin binding of this mid-sixteenth century compendium of geographical knowledge by the Venetian writer Dominicus Marius Niger, edited by Wolfgang Wissenburg. In the tradition of the great classical geographer Strabo, Niger provides a description of the principal regions of the earth, together with accounts of the habits, customs and laws of its various peoples. The first eleven chapters describe the geography of Europe; four chapters deal with Africa, and are followed by eleven concerning Asia. This edition also contains the Geographia of Laurentius Corvinus and an epitome of Strabo by Hieronymus Gemuseus, first published in 1539. Hakluyt would later produce ten arguments to prove that the Northwest Passage had been successfully sailed: the first century BC writer Cornelius Nepos can't have been wrong, he says, " And for the better proof that the same authority of Cornelius Nepos is not by me wrested to prove my opinion of the North-West Passage, you shall find the same affirmed more plainly in that behalf by the excellent geographer Dominicus Marius Niger … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAFFEI, Joan Petro.
Borba de Moraes, p. 509; Cordier, Japonica, col. 64; Sabin 43773 ("The best of the various editions in Latin"). Early 17th-century edition of a classic work on "the Indies", including both the West and East Indies, considered the best (Sabin) and the most complete (Borba de Moraes) of the many Latin editions. Most of Maffei's work is concerned with the Portuguese conquests and the Jesuit stations in India, the East Indies, and regions around the Arabian Sea to about 1557. The first 5 books appear to follow rather closely the model of Barros. Book VI, dealing with China and book XII, which is mainly concerned with Japan, are heavily indebted to Valignano's account of those countries. The second part includes a selection of Jesuit letters written from the Indies and translated by Maffei. The work by John Hay (1546-1618), De rebus Japonicis, Indicis, et Peruanis Epistolae recentiores, called for on the title, is not present as with the most copies. It has its own title-page and was issued (also) separately. Title-page somewhat frayed, some quires a bit browned and some faint marginal water stains, otherwise in very good condition. Lacking endpapers, and top of the spine slightly damaged, otherwise good.

Gesner, Conrad
Fine copy of the first edition in German of Gesner's thoroughly illustrated encyclopedic work on birds, one of the first to use original drawings of birds, with a fine royal provenance and in a dated contemporary binding; it remained a standard reference during the 16thand 17thcenturies. Of his work PMM 77 states "An encyclopaedia of contemporary knowledge, intended to replace not only medieval compilations but even Aristotle's work... It was many times reprinted and although it often suffered at the hands of editors, it remained the standard reference book even as late as Linné and beyond, because neither Linné nor Ray included illustrations".

Gesner, Conrad
Fine copy of the first edition in German of Gesner's thoroughly illustrated encyclopedic work on birds, one of the first to use original drawings of birds, with a fine royal provenance and in a dated contemporary binding; it remained a standard reference during the 16thand 17thcenturies. Of his work PMM 77 states "An encyclopaedia of contemporary knowledge, intended to replace not only medieval compilations but even Aristotle's work... It was many times reprinted and although it often suffered at the hands of editors, it remained the standard reference book even as late as Linné and beyond, because neither Linné nor Ray included illustrations".

DELAUNE, Étienne (1518/1519-1583).
Paris, ca. 1557-1583., 1557. Oblong 4to (188 x 290mm.): 6 engraved plates, unnumbered and untitled (title above from Robert-Dumesnil); each engraving approx. 66 x 220 mm. and cut to plate mark and mounted. Bound in modern half brown morocco. PROVENANCE: bookplate of German business and merchant Hans Dedi (1918-2016). FIRST STATE OF ÉTIENNE DELAUNE'S ENGRAVINGS OF HUNTING SCENES. According to Robert-Dumesnil, the engravings exist in three states: first state engravings are unnumbered and without engraver address, as here; second state plates are unnumbered and read "F.L.D. Ciartes excud."; and third state plates are numbered and read "Mariette et fils". Etienne Delaune (1518-1583) was principally known as a designer of medals, metalwork and guns. He provided many designs for the much-admired decorative arts of France under King Henry II. Delaune worked as a journeyman goldsmith in Paris in 1546, where he was briefly employed as the king's chief medallist at the royal mint in 1552. He was dismissed from that post but continued working for the king, creating designs for Henry's parade armor in 1556. Delaune took up engraving around 1557. His first dated prints, twelve plates illustrating the Old Testament and two designs for hand mirrors, appeared in 1561. The Italian artists of the School of Fontainebleau greatly influenced his draftsmanship and his engraving style. Delaune made hundreds of ornamental designs for jewelry and pictorial engravings, noteworthy for their decorative nature and their technical precision despite their often small size. His engravings helped to disse … [Click Below for Full Description]

(LOPEZ DE GOMARA Francisco)
appresso Andrea Arrivabene, 1557. In-16 p., (mm. 150x100), p. pergam. rigida antica, tit. ms. al dorso, 18 cc.nn., 324 cc.num., marca tipograf. al frontespizio e con alcune grandi iniz. figur. a vignetta, inc. su legno. Questa "seconda parte" è dedicata alla conquista del Peru (fino alla pacificazione effettuata da Gasca), delle Antille, del Chile e dell'America Centrale e anche al viaggio di Magellano e alla scoperta delle Molucche. "La prima parte de la cronica del gran regno del Perù, con la descrittione di tutte le provincie, e costumi, e riti, con le nuove città edificate.." fu scritta in lingua spagnola da Pedro Cieza de Leon. Come precisa Brunet, l'opera doveva essere composta da 4 parti ma solo la prima fu pubblicata (a Siviglia nel 1553; nella versione italiana, a Roma, 1555). La "cronica del regno del Peru" fu completata dallo storico spagnolo Francesco Lopez de Gomara, con la sua importante "Historia general de las Indias", tradotta in italiano, in prima ediz. a Roma nel 1556, col titolo "La historia generale delle Indie Occidentali.." e, in seconda ediz. a Venezia, 1557, col titolo "La seconda parte delle historie generali dell'India..". "Francisco Lopez de Gomara (1512 - 1560?), ecclesiastico, studiò ad Alcalà, venne a Roma, e fu poi in America cappellano di Ferdinando Cortés. Nel 1552 fu pubblicata a Saragozza la sua famosa "Historia general de las Indias" divisa in due parti: la prima narra la storia delle scoperte e delle conquiste spagnole in America, la seconda è dedicata alla conquista del Messico. Nella narrazione il Lopez de Gomara ha buon senso nell'ut … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Bible, Latin)
Basilaea [Basel]: Nicolaum Bryling [Nicolaus Brylinger], 1557. Woodcut border and printer's device on title. INCOMPLETE. [8], 479 [of 500], [8] leaves. Lacking ff. 46-56 & 61-70. 1 vols. 8vo. Bound in contemporary blind panel-stamped pigskin over bevelled wooden boards, clasps removed, binding worn, exposing boards on rear cover, title page detached, contemporary marginalia by Johannes Weneken throughout. Woodcut border and printer's device on title. INCOMPLETE. [8], 479 [of 500], [8] leaves. Lacking ff. 46-56 & 61-70. 1 vols. 8vo. Brylinger published the only 16th century edition of Luther's Bible in Switzerland, published one of the earliest Greek and Latin diglot Bibles, and published a series of 8vo editions of the Bible with diglot and Greek-only text which was popular with students. Darlow & Moule makes no mention of this or any other Latin-only edition by Brylinger. Front paste-down endpaper and front free endpaper display extensive annotations in Greek and Latin, presumably by Johannes Weneken. The marginal annotations provide a fascinating insight into how this book was used. Not in Darlow & Moule, but cf. 4621*; Adams 1056; OCLC: 46973017 (6 copies, only 3 of which in U.S.)
