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.

Contemporary limp vellum with fore-edge flap. First translation ever of the principal Renaissance treatise on mining, prepared for German readers by Philipp Bech.

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". Considered one of the fathers of zoology and called the 'German Pliny', Gesner set out to rationalize the animal kingdom in the way that his contemporaries Brunfels, Bock, and Fuchs had done for botany. The illustration of the book comprises a woodcut on title and over 200 woodcuts of birds in text, all beautifully crafted. Gesner (1516 - 1565) was a Swiss physician naturalist, and philologist, author of monumental works on zoology and bibliography, regarded as father of modern scientific zoology; he gained the admiration of Tournefort, Linnaeus, and Cuvier. The first edition of this work appeared in Latin in 1555 (De Avium Natura), this German translation is the first in a vernacular language, and was prepared by Rudolph Heusslin. Provenance: fine royal provenance, Joachim Ernest, Prince of Anhalt, Dessau (1536-1586), bound for him; later with Edwin Schindler (stamp on title dated 1950); finally Otto Schäfer (m … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 businessman 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.

Da Monte, Giovanni Battista.
Venice, Vincenzo Valgrisi & Baldassarre Costantini, 1557. 8vo. (32), 651, (1) pp. (without the 2 final blanks). With woodcut printer's decive to t. p. and woodcut initials. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine. Posthumous edition (by Giano Matteo Durastante) of Giambattista da Monte's (1489-1551) commentary on book (kitab) 1, part (fen) 1 of Avicenna's systematic "Canon of Medicine". A corrected and enlarged edition of the work previously edited by W. Lublin and published in Venice in 1554. "The newly added chapter De membris (p. 553-605) is followed by 2 others: De facultatibus and De virtutibus naturalibus ministrantibus" (Durling). - Avicenna's Arabic "Qanun" was widely translated throughout the Middle Ages and remained the basis of medical training in the West as late as the mid-17th century. It continues in use to this day in parts of the Arab world. Through this encyclopedic work, the author exerted "perhaps a wider influence in the eastern and western hemispheres than any other Islamic thinker" (PMM). "The 'Qanun' [...] contains some of the most illuminating thoughts pertaining to distinction of mediastinitis from pleurisy; contagious nature of phthisis; distribution of diseases by water and soil; careful description of skin troubles; of sexual diseases and perversions; of nervous ailments" (Sarton, Introduction to the History of Science). The present part offers a definition of medicine and is mainly dedicated to a discussion of the four humours and temperaments. - Slight traces of worming to blank lower corner; occasional contemporary marginalia to index; a … [Click Below for Full Description]

MILIEU, Christophe (MYLAEUS);
Florentiae, Ex officina Laurentii Torrentini, 1557 In-8 de (8) ff., 5-198 pp. (sans manque), vélin de l'époque. Élégante impression en caractères italique donnée par l'imprimeur Lorenzo Torrentino. Né aux Pays-Bas à Helmond, de son vrai nom Laurens Leenaertsz Van der Beke, il fut appelé à Florence en 1546 par le duc Côme de Medicis. Il fut également l'imprimeur du duc de Savoie. Vers un récit moderne. Christophe Milieu, historien réformé et professeur au collège de la Trinité à Lyon, tente de redéfinir le genre du récit historique affranchi de celui des mémoires : Quels sont les rapports de l'histoire avec la dialectique et avec la rhétorique ? Le genre historique est-il assujetti à des lois ? Est-il convenable que l'historien rapporte les trahisons, les lâchetés, les crimes, les désordres ? L'histoire peut-elle s'accommoder d'un autre genre que du sublime ?, etc."La connaissance considérée comme processus historique dicte désormais son ordre de progression à une classification des savoirs qui s'inscrit ainsi dans processus temporel. En 1548, le Lyonnais Christophe Milieu en donne une traduction particulièrement claire dans son De scribenda universitatis rerum historia (Marie-Dominque Couzinet, Histoire et Méthode à la Renaissance, p. 22). Bel exemplaire en vélin de l'époque.

First and only French edition of Dodonaeus' 'Cruydeboeck', first published in 1554 by Jan van der Loe, and translated by Clusius into French. Clusius added a supplement to the work, a small contribution that was provided with an extra title page, in fact the first independant work by Carolus Clusius. In this contribution he incorporated among others notes about plants he had observed in the South of France. The present French translation is rare and in the course of many years we have only offered one other copy. /'Clusius faithfully followed Dodoens' herbal. The Cruydeboeck's frontispiece, lay-out and subdivisions of the contents into six parts were maintained. On the other hand, the number of descriptions and illustrations of plants had been considerably increased. For this purpose 108 new woodblocks were cut of the new flora he had seen in the gardens of amateur botanists on his many travels through Germany, Switzerland and France. Clusius did not make any fundamental modifications to Dodoens' 'Cruydeboeck', but he limited himself to the addition of a 'Petit recueil' (Botany in the Low Countries p. 101).

Bassantin, James.
1557. Folio (300 x 445 mm). 286, (2) pp. With 175 woodcuts and diagrams in the text, of which 14 have a total of 35 (instead of 38?) movable parts, all in fine original hand colour. Modern half calf with giltstamped title to spine. First edition, excessively rare. Latin editions were published by de Tournes in 1559 and 1599, another French one appeared in 1613. James (or Jacques) Bassantin, son of the laird of Bassendean (Berwickshire), lived in Paris as a mathematician; he is said to have died in Scotland in 1568. - "The size of this volume and the extent of its illustrations make this an unusually fine example of the attention given to the printing of scientific works at this period" (Mortimer). "A very impressive work, though partly a plagiarism of Apianus' great Astronomicum Caesareum, 1540" (Honeyman). The proper number of movable parts is not easily determined. The Honeyman copy had 25 volvelles, the Horblit copy (according to the latest count) 36; Mortimer cites 36, though neither copy at Harvard has more than 33. In the present copy we count 35 "movable parts". Compared with the count given by Honeyman ("counting volvelles is always a risky business"), we lack one part on p. 202 and two on p. 278; further differences concern pages 205 & 209 as well as 219 & 221: here, some parts have probably been fastened in the wrong place in our copy. The three parts which the Honeyman copy (p. 216) lacks from 38 are present here, however. - Bound with four engraved plates with 2 constellation maps each (after Beaublé, probably from a Parisian edition of Flamsteed's celestial atl … [Click Below for Full Description]

[JEROME CARDAN] CARDANO (Gerolamo)
1557Basel, Per Henrichum Petri, 1557. Folio, 18th-century mottled sheep, two blind fillet on the covers, gilt spine with raised bands and red-morocco title page. One the most fascinating scientific treatise of the 16th century. Ranging from alchemist subjects such as Pythagoras' Duodecahedron to new developments such as the development of a scientific method based on empirical observation, Cardamo's work has been praised for centuries as crucial link between the superstition of the ancient World and the scientific revolution of late Renaissance. This treatise was also an important source of inspiration for the young Johannes Kepler and remained one of the most influential book during the entire 17th-century. The famous chapter X has admired for centuries for its consideration on fire, distillates and glass, and includes many illustrations in the text. This Basel edition is much less common that the 8vo edition published later that year. It is of special interest for being the only one to give the original text, before the editors' added numerous corrections, and sought after by collectors for its rich illustration. Very Good copy, red-rulled. Light dampstain at leaf Y. Bookplate of J. B. Gartoldy, who gained some fame while working as physician in Avignon in the beginning of the 18th-century.

PLATO
Venice Comin da Trino 1557. Rare first Italian-language edition of this Platonic dialogue, somewhat anomalous in the Platonic corpus because of its extended treatment of the nature of physical matter and cosmology, and a favorite among Renaissance readers for its myth of Atlantis, which influenced other Renaissance utopias. The 1550s or thereabouts saw the first Italian translation of the most popular Platonic dialogues, whether directly from Greek (as here) or via Ficino’s Latin translation; the prestige of Ficino’s Latin translation and wider readership for the original Greek probably explains why this Italian edition came so relatively late. The edition was translated by the littérateur Sebastiano Erizzo (1525-1585), a prolific writer of poetry, fiction and belles lettres, who provides some commentary in the way of printed marginal annotations; he would later translate a further selection of dialogues into Italian, in which the Timaeus was reprinted (1574). NUC lists UNC and OCLC adds Duke. * Graesse V.325 (giving 1558 imprint; a second issue); the Italian Union Catalogue (Catalogo Unico) lists only 5 copies in Italian libraries.
