I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1558 Petrarch Canzoniere Italian Renaissance Poetry Petrarca Triumphs Sonnets "Books have led some to learning and others to madness." ― Francesco Petrarch Petrarch was a 14th-century Italian humanist known for his discovery of the letters of Cicero and establishment of the study of humanism. He wrote sonnets and poems, many of which were the model of poetry during the Dark Ages. One of his most unique works was 'Il Canzoniere', a work of sonnets and poems written in Italian rather than the more accepted Latin. These poems are often considered Petrarch's best works much in part to his use of references to Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' and Virgil's 'Aeneid'. This 1558 Lyon edition is a notable pocket edition of a famous piece of Italian literature.

A document written in dark brown ink on paper, with the opening words filled in afterwards in light brown ink and the signature in light brown ink. [1] ll. An official declaration signed by the great botanist and physician Rembert Dodoens (1517-1585), acknowledging financial and other documents received in his new capacity as churchwarden of the Church of Saints Peter and Paul (now known as the old Pieterskerk) in his native Mechelen (Malines) in what is now Belgium. This was a highly desirable post granted to him in 1558 addition to the post of city physician that he had held since 1548. He received seven receipts signed by Christiaen Verhayct for church property from the seven years 1542-1543 and 1547-1551. Also a signed, authenticated copy of a document of the foundation established in memory of Margaret of Austria (1480-1530), Archduchess of Austria and Savoy, who had been governor of the Habsburg Low Countries from 1507 to 1515 and from 1519 to her death in 1530. Further a 1538 inventory of the church's jewels, also made by Verhayct, and finally a document concerning the service drawn up by the sacristan in 1553. He received all of these documents from Catherine van Loon, widow of the deceased churchwarden Niclaes du Guesne.The document is written on one side of a quarter sheet of paper with no watermark in this quarter.

With the titles of the first 3 books in woodcut architectural borders; 2 woodcut illustrations in the text and a number of large woodcut historiated initials. 18th-century tree calf, rebacked with the original backstrip laid down, later endpapers. First edition in French of Guevara's Arte de marear ("Art of navigation") and a complete set of the three parts of the French edition of his Epístolas familiars ("Familiar epistles"), both translated from the original Spanish. The Art of navigation chronicles its subject from classical antiquity onward, but most of the text focuses on Guevara's own era. Often humorous are the descriptions of the horrendous food aboard the galleys and his tongue-in-cheek listing of the 58 "privileges" reserved for those who choose a life at sea. Ultimately, the art of navigation is something that separates men from beasts, since beasts flee when they see they danger yet man willingly navigates into unknown waters.With an old owner's inscription on the first title page, a number of annotations in the text, which is ruled in red throughout.

Small 4to (18.5 x 14.5 cm). With two woodcut initials. Modern half cloth. [28] ll. First issue of the first and only edition of a pamphlet on the "true Evangelical doctrine", by the German Lutheran theologian and reformer Nicolaus von Amsdorf (1483-1565). The pamphlet was published after Johann Pfeffinger held two disputations on the nature of free will. This pamphlet "... reproduced Pfeffinger's teaching in distorted form, maintaining that Pfeffinger and his colleagues had taught that human beings can prepare themselves for grace by their own free will and situate themselves so that God can give them grace..." (Kolb). The text is followed by a section against the "bitter falsehoods" as believed by Justus Menius (1499-1558) and others. Included at the end is a brief and sharp reply by Pfeffinger.A few marginal water stains, otherwise in very good condition.

THEODOSIUS.
Sphaericorum libri tres, nunquam antehac graece excusi. Paris, André Wechel, 1558. Small 4to (21 x 14 cm). With woodcut publisher's Pegasus device on title-page (repeated on last page), numerous woodcut mathematical diagrams in text, woodcut headpieces and decorated initials. 18th-century tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine and board edges. [8], 54, [2], 70, [2] pp. First bilingual edition of the oldest treatise on spherical geometry, providing the first edition of the original Greek and the first Latin edition to be translated directly from the Greek. It was composed by the Greek mathematician and astronomer Theodosius, perhaps around the year 100 BC, and edited by Jean Péna (1528?-1558?), mathematician at the Collège Royale. The Greek text and very extensive notes, also in Greek, occupy the first half of the book, while the Latin translation of both text and notes (and repeating the woodcut diagrams) occupies the second half. The first two Latin editions (Venice 1518 and Vienna 1529) were translated from Arabic translations of the Greek, so the present book was a watershed in the development of Greek scholarship. Since spherical geometry was essential to the development of astronomy, it also set the stage for the Renaissance revolution set in motion by Copernicus, Gallileo and others. On top of that it was a monument to the golden age of French typography. With the owners inscription of the magistrate and engineer Thomas de Scorbiac (1614-1690). In very good condition.

OLAUS MAGNUS.
Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus, .... sic in epitomen redacta, ut non minus clare quam breviter quicquid apud Septentrionales scitu dignum est, complectatur.Antwerp, Christopher Plantin, 1558. 8vo. With Plantin's woodcut device and 135 fine woodcut illustrations by Arnaud Nicolai in text. Early 17th-century gold-tooled calf, with charming centrepiece on both boards. [8], 192 ll. First edition of the abridged version of the first important history of the Nordic countries originally published in Rome in 1555. Magnus describes the history, customs and folklore of Scandinavia, Iceland and Greenland, but also deals with mining and metallurgy, military subjects and natural history with a large part devoted to fish, fishery and whaling. Three "truths" feature heavily in the account: the region is the cradle of warfare, the haunt of demons and the realm of cold. Would-be invaders are warned that ice, snow and cold have produced a hardy people, distinguished by their courage, strength and bravery. As the book would remain an authority for centuries, Magnus's book played an important part in establishing the stereotypes of the Nordic countries as cold and barren, with a rugged coast guarded by maelstroms and sea monsters.The present abridgement was compiled by Cornelius Grapheus, an Antwerp town clerk and, according to the introduction, judged by Plantin to be of interest for publication. The numerous woodcuts are reduced copies of the illustrations in the original 1555-edition.Olaus Magnus (1490-1557) was a Swedish writer and ecclesiastical.

OLAUS MAGNUS.
Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus, .... sic in epitomen redacta, ut non minus clare quam breviter quicquid apud Septentrionales scitu dignum est, complectatur.Antwerp, Christopher Plantin, 1558. 8vo. With Plantin's woodcut device and 135 fine woodcut illustrations by Arnaud Nicolai in text. Early 17th-century gold-tooled calf, with charming centrepiece on both boards. [8], 192 ll. First edition of the abridged version of the first important history of the Nordic countries originally published in Rome in 1555. Magnus describes the history, customs and folklore of Scandinavia, Iceland and Greenland, but also deals with mining and metallurgy, military subjects and natural history with a large part devoted to fish, fishery and whaling. Three "truths" feature heavily in the account: the region is the cradle of warfare, the haunt of demons and the realm of cold. Would-be invaders are warned that ice, snow and cold have produced a hardy people, distinguished by their courage, strength and bravery. As the book would remain an authority for centuries, Magnus's book played an important part in establishing the stereotypes of the Nordic countries as cold and barren, with a rugged coast guarded by maelstroms and sea monsters.The present abridgement was compiled by Cornelius Grapheus, an Antwerp town clerk and, according to the introduction, judged by Plantin to be of interest for publication. The numerous woodcuts are reduced copies of the illustrations in the original 1555-edition.Olaus Magnus (1490-1557) was a Swedish writer and ecclesiastical. Being the younger brother of the A … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEODOSIUS.
Sphaericorum libri tres, nunquam antehac graece excusi. Paris, André Wechel, 1558. Small 4to (21 x 14 cm). With woodcut publisher's Pegasus device on title-page (repeated on last page), numerous woodcut mathematical diagrams in text, woodcut headpieces and decorated initials. 18th-century tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine and board edges. [8], 54, [2], 70, [2] pp. First bilingual edition of the oldest treatise on spherical geometry, providing the first edition of the original Greek and the first Latin edition to be translated directly from the Greek. It was composed by the Greek mathematician and astronomer Theodosius, perhaps around the year 100 BC, and edited by Jean Péna (1528?-1558?), mathematician at the Collège Royale. The Greek text and very extensive notes, also in Greek, occupy the first half of the book, while the Latin translation of both text and notes (and repeating the woodcut diagrams) occupies the second half. The first two Latin editions (Venice 1518 and Vienna 1529) were translated from Arabic translations of the Greek, so the present book was a watershed in the development of Greek scholarship. Since spherical geometry was essential to the development of astronomy, it also set the stage for the Renaissance revolution set in motion by Copernicus, Gallileo and others. On top of that it was a monument to the golden age of French typography. With the owners inscription of the magistrate and engineer Thomas de Scorbiac (1614-1690). In very good condition. Although binding shows some surface damage, cracks in the hinges and restorations, it remains structural … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Declaration of financial and other documents received as incoming churchwarden of the Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Mechelen].[Mechelen], 27 December 1558. Oblong 4to (19 x 21.5 cm). A document written in dark brown ink on paper, with the opening words filled in afterwards in light brown ink and the signature in light brown ink. [1] ll. An official declaration signed by the great botanist and physician Rembert Dodoens (1517-1585), acknowledging financial and other documents received in his new capacity as churchwarden of the Church of Saints Peter and Paul (now known as the old Pieterskerk) in his native Mechelen (Malines) in what is now Belgium. This was a highly desirable post granted to him in 1558 addition to the post of city physician that he had held since 1548. He received seven receipts signed by Christiaen Verhayct for church property from the seven years 1542-1543 and 1547-1551. Also a signed, authenticated copy of a document of the foundation established in memory of Margaret of Austria (1480-1530), Archduchess of Austria and Savoy, who had been governor of the Habsburg Low Countries from 1507 to 1515 and from 1519 to her death in 1530. Further a 1538 inventory of the church's jewels, also made by Verhayct, and finally a document concerning the service drawn up by the sacristan in 1553. He received all of these documents from Catherine van Loon, widow of the deceased churchwarden Niclaes du Guesne.The document is written on one side of a quarter sheet of paper with no watermark in this quarter.

DEDEKIND, Frederic
Cologne, 1558. There Is No Abstinence on the Path to Good HealthFirst published in two books in 1549, and enlarged to three in 1552, Dedekind's elegiac poem concerns a certain St. Grobian, a personage first envisioned half a century before by Sebastian Brant as a the patron saint of coarse manners. In Dedekind's satiric masterpiece, St. Grobian teaches students how to avoid gluttony and drunkenness, paradoxically by engaging in those very pursuits. Likewise good St. Grobian counsels one to engage in excessive flatulence, urination, and vomiting lest one's health be compromised by abstinence. No image of Friedrich Dedekind was known until 2008, when a painting of him, dated 1589, was found in his personal bible, housed at the Leibniz Library. Octavo, 143 x 100 x 12 mm (binding), 140 x 97 x 9 mm (text block). Bound in tree-calf paper over thin boards, titled in manuscript on paper spine label: Dede | kindi | Grobia | nus. Interior: Title somewhat toned, otherwise good. Provenance: Albert A. Howard, his monogrammatic ex libris to lower pastedown. Howard was rare books cataloguer at the University of Southern Maine. It is there that his eponymous Book History Collection resides. VD16 D389; Milchsack, Grobianus, no. 15. Also see Simon, Bib. Bacch., p.59, and Bib. Gastr., p. 452.

PETRARCH, Francesco
Gulielmo Rouillio. 1558 Petrarch Canzoniere Italian Renaissance Poetry Petrarca Triumphs Sonnets Books have led some to learning and others to madness. Francesco Petrarch Petrarch was a 14th-century Italian humanist known for his discovery of the letters of Cicero and establishment of the study of humanism. He wrote sonnets and poems, many of which were the model of poetry during the Dark Ages. One of his most unique works was Il Canzoniere , a work of sonnets and poems written in Italian rather than the more accepted Latin. These poems are often considered Petrarch s best works much in part to his use of references to Ovid s Metamorphoses and Virgil s Aeneid . This 1558 Lyon edition is a notable pocket edition of a famous piece of Italian literature.

MARTIALIS Marcus Valerius
1558. Woodcut Jesuit 'IHS' device on title-page, initials. Sm 8vo (170 x 108). 344pp. Expertly bound in recent cartonnage boards. Rome, in aedibus Societatis Iesu, 1558. First edition of the first Jesuit edition of a classical author, expurgated for a juvenile audience as the title suggests, ?The Epigrams, only a few of which have been rejected or changed without damage to the Latin, stripped of every sort of obscenity and raised above every distasteful form of language.? This is one of the earliest Jesuit school books, edited by the French Jesuits André des Freux and Emund Auger at the request of Ignatius Loyola, to serve the growing number of Jesuit schools. Des Freux, one of only two Jesuits present at the founder?s death in 1556, had been charged by Ignatius to compose a work on Latin style and a Latin Syntax, and also expurgated editions of Martial, Horace and Terence. From these authors only this edition of Martial?s Epigrams was published in 1558; it was one of the first books printed at the Collegio Romano, the first press operated by the Jesuits, and went into 18 editions. From the founding of the first school at Messina in 1548 there had been demands for specific text books for use in the schools and Des Freux?s books were composed to meet this immediate demand. André des Freux, or Frusius, was born at Chartres c. 1502. He was well educated and was for many years a priest at Thiverval, near to Paris, but travelled to Rome to seek membership of the newly founded Society of Jesus. Shortly after his admission in 1541 he became secretary to Loyola and contributed to t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vico, Enea
Appresso Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, In Vinegia, 1558. 4to [20.5 by 15 cm], contemporary limp vellum; hand-lettered spine label; perforated for ties no longer present. 112, (16) pages; large woodcut printer's device on title; unsigned engraved oval portrait of Cosimo Medici within a historiated border; woodcut headpieces, initials, and decorations; woodcut allegorical printer's device on final page. Vellum a bit discolored; minimal spotting relegated mostly to the margins; small inkstamp to title. Near fine or so. The second edition of the Discorsi, which, Bassoli writes: "are excellently concise for their time." Bassoli further observes that "in this book Vico expertly considers many aspects of numismatics: the origin of coins; what they are called; the different metals they are made of; the inscriptions engraved on them; valuations of coins owned by collectors; 'the fakery and different coloured patinas imposed on modern medals to make them look old'; and more specific forms of coins, medallions and grooved coins (contorniates). We can conclude that the author of these essays was without doubt the first real philologist in his field and, what is more, he was the first to leave some accomplished and splendidly edited books behind him." Jonathan Kagan, in Numismatics in the Age of Grolier (2001), terms this work "the first handbook or manual on coin-collecting, a response to the growing number of new collectors seeking advice and assistance."

MODIO GIOVANNI BATTISTA.
Milano, Gianantonio degli Antoni, 1558. In-8°; 40 cc., grande marca tipografica al titolo e al verso dell'ultima carta. Legatura coeva in tutta pergamena floscia. Qualche trascurabile macchiolina all'ultima carta. Bell'esemplare genuino, proveniente dalla biblioteca Sormani Busca Arconati Visconti (tassello al dorso ed al contropiatto), firma di possesso coeva al piatto frontale "de Gianluigi da Milano". Seconda edizione di un divertissement letterario sul tema dell'adulterio femminile, o dei mariti cornuti, in cui l'autore cerca di dimostrare che le azioni disoneste delle donne non possono portare vergogna agli uomini e che le corna non portano disgrazia ai mariti. Trasferitosi a Roma poco prima del 1553, l'autore entrò in contatto con i cenacoli accademici dell'Urbe e qui pubblicò nel 1554 questa sua opera satirica, un "dialogo ambientato a Roma durante il carnevale dello stesso anno. La conversazione funge da cornice a un incontro conviviale, durante il quale si discute dell'argomento delle "corna" secondo le regole fissate dal "re del banchetto", il giovane vescovo di Piacenza, Catalano Trivulzi. Gli interlocutori del dialogo e del convito, oltre al Modio e al Trivulzi, sono L. Gambara, G. Marmitta, T. Benci, .. letterati legati al cardinale Alessandro Farnese e protagonisti del dinamismo culturale romano." (DBI) Brunet, III 1784. Non in Gay ed Erdmann.

SUSIO, Giovanni Battista.
In Vinegia, appresso Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, MDLVIII [1558]. Second Edition 4to, pp. 199, [1] blank; with elaborate printer's device on title and smaller device on final page, plus numerous woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces; some contemporary marginalia; in later vellum, title in ink on spine. Second edition, after the first of 1555, of this influential treatise on duelling, by the Mantua physician Giovanni Battista Susio. Several works on the subject appeared in Italy and elsewhere in the middle of the sixteenth century. The present one, dedicated to Henri II of France, discusses the acquisition and maintence of honour, the importance of law, the role of soldiers, and the injuries which might lead to the proposal of a duel. He argues strongly against the practice; duelling is unfair, and those who allow it lack any sense of justice. Moreover, it is disadvantageous to the State to have its citizens injuring one another, or its soldiers killing one another without military gain. Susio backs up his arguments with the views both of Plato and Aristotle and of contemporary writers, discusses the various laws governing duelling and its status as a criminal activity, and cites examples of individual duellists, both successful and unsuccessful. Levi & Gelli, Bibliografia del duello, p. 171.

CHRYSOSTOME, John Saint
Basileae: Hieronymum Frobenium et Nicolaum Episcopium, 1558. 1558 Works of Saint John Chrysostom Bible & Commentary & Sermons Basel FROBEN"Happiness can only be achieved by looking inward & learning to enjoy whatever life has and this requires transforming greed into gratitude." ― John ChrysostomA rare 16th-century printing of works of John Chrysostom. Chrysostom was one of the most important Early Christian Church authors and preachers and is most remembered for his sermons and homilies. He preached on many different subjects, but his most frequented topic was helping the needy. Chrysostom calls for followers of Jesus to set aside their material desires to help the poor, often in a way that shamed the rich and guilted them in to giving."Do you pay such honor to your excrements as to receive them into a silver chamber-pot when another man made in the image of God is perishing in the cold?" (Chrysostom in Liebeschuetz)His homilies were by far his most famous works - hundreds written in total - and covered a wide variety of topics including Roman rulers, the Bible, and even homosexuality.This volume from the 1558 edition was published by the famous Basel publisher Froben and includes many of Chrysostom's famous homilies. Note the stunning woodcut engraved initials included in this edition.Item number: #9828Price: $1095CHRYSOSTOME, John SaintQuintus et vltimus tomus operum D.
