Pg.56 non numerate, 824 numerate solo al recto. Legatura in piena pergamena, con lievi spellature. Alcuni capilettera incisi. Si tratta di una delle edizioni a stampa cinquecentesche dei celebri Decreti di Papa Gregorio IX, al secolo Ugolino dei Conti Segni, salito al soglio pontificio il 19 marzo 1227 come successore di Onorio III. Fiero avversario di Federico II, a lui si deve l'istituzione, nel 1232, del Tribunale dell'Inquisizione. Il testo dei "Decretales", in cinque libri, fu fatto compilare dal suo cappellano Ramon De Penaforte, e inviato il 5 settembre 1234 alla Università di Bologna: conteneva i principi fondamentali del diritto canonico medioevale e come tale fu poi inserito nel Corpus Iuris Canonici fino alla riforma di Benedetto XV. La prima edizione a stampa fu edita a Mayence nel 1473.

        LA HISTORIA DI TUTTE LE CITTA', VILLE, FIUMI, FONTI, ET ALTRE COSE NOTABILI DELLA FRANZA, & DI TUTTI I RE DI QUELLA. Tradotta dall Lingua Franzese nella Italiana.

Marca tipografica impressa al frontespizio, raffigurante la Sibilla con il motto "Qual più fermo è il mio foglio è il mio presaggio". Alla carta [36], senza cambio di numerazione, compare "Seguita il secondo libro delle singularità di Gallia, dove si contiene le città, i fiumi, le fontane calde, et fredde, et i luoghi santi, et altre maraviglie, composto per Claudio Champier lionese". Al verso della carta [46], analogamente, "Qui presso seguita uno trattato di fiumi, et fontane ammirabili delle dette Gallie già composto per M. Simphoriano Champier cavaliere, nuovamente tradotto dal Francese". Ancora, alla carta [65], "Libro che contiene tutti i Re di Francia, prima di quegli che furono cominciando dopo il diluvio di Noè infino a Feramondo chiamato dagli scrittori primo Re di francia, perché di quegli che furono avanti a lui varii scrittori, variamente ne trattarono, ma noi secondo i più approvati ne tratteremo". Alcuni capilettera incisi. I dati tipografici compaiono al colophon. Restauro cartaceo al margine esterno del frontespizio, a mendare mancanza di circa cm.2,5 di larghezza. Si tratta dell'unica versione italiana di una celebre guida francese del XVI secolo, "Les antiques Erections des Gaules, compendieuses et brieves descriptions des fondations de la pluspart des villes et cites assises es trois Gaules". La traduzione è probabilmente a cura di Francesco Tramezzino, fratello dello stampatore, cui si deve anche la versione delle due opere di Claude e Symphorien Champier.

Einband alterstypisch abgedunkelt und fleckig, Kanten berieben und bestossen, Leder an den Kanten an einigen Stellen bis zum Holz duchgewetzt, Schliessen fehlen, fester Block, innen etwas fleckig (allgemeine Gebrauchsspuren), durchgehend mit Textanstreichungen und Randanmerkungen in roter und schwarzer Tinte von alter Hand (nicht besonders störend). am Vorsatz handschriftlicher Besitzervermerk "Ex libris M.Leonhardi Engelhart, Epinta acguifitis; Anno Domini 1578" - Detailfotos auf Anfrage. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Martin Luther (* 10. November 1483 in Eisleben, Grafschaft Mansfeld; 18. Februar 1546 ebenda) war der theologische Urheber der Reformation. Als zu den Augustiner-Eremiten gehörender Theologieprofessor entdeckte er Gottes Gnadenzusage im Neuen Testament wieder und orientierte sich fortan ausschließlich an Jesus Christus als dem "fleischgewordenen Wort Gottes". Nach diesem Maßstab wollte er Fehlentwicklungen der Christentumsgeschichte und in der Kirche seiner Zeit überwinden. Seine Betonung des gnädigen Gottes, seine Predigten und Schriften und seine Bibelübersetzung, die Lutherbibel, veränderten die von der römisch-katholischen Kirche dominierte Gesellschaft in der frühen Neuzeit nachhaltig. Entgegen Luthers Absicht kam es zu einer Kirchenspaltung, zur Bildung evangelisch-lutherischer Kirchen und weiterer Konfessionen des Protestantismus. ---------------------------------------------------- Der vorliegende Siebente Band (von 8 + Registerband) des Jenaer Bibelwerk des Martin Luther, umfasst die gesammelten Schriften Luthers aus den Jahren 1538-1542. Diese erste Auflage wurde in 1500 Exemplaren gedruckt. Bis 1615 folgten fünf weitere Auflagen in Jenaer Druckereien.

        Eis ta apora ... (In Greek). Bound with: Theodoretus: De selectis scripturae divinae quaestionibus ambiguis, Ioanne Pico ... interprete ...

      Both: Paris, Du Puys, 1558.. 1.) Editio princeps. 4to. (2) leaves, 205, (1) p. 2.) First edition in Latin. (4) leaves, 342 p., (1) p. Errata.On leaf Piii verso an initial has been cut off, but since recto is no text, there is nothing missing except the initial. Some quires loose, but a clean and fresh copy. Contemporary limp vellum.Provenance: Contemporary ownership entry and two oval red stamps (J. R. Chibout) to title of the Latin edition. - Hoffmann III, 496; Adams T-491, T-492. Theodoretus: Bishop of Cyrus near Antioch in Syria, c. 393-457, involved in the Nestorian controversy. His work offered here "consists of answers to difficult points of the Pentateuch and Numeri, for the most part characterized by the sound common-sense literalism of the Antiochene school, with but little tendency to allegory ... In Leviticus and Numbers he naturally adopts more of the allegorical method, regarding the whole Levitical ritual and the moral ordinances as typical of the sacrificial and mediatorial work of Christ, and of the new law He came to inaugurate. (Dict. of Christian Biography ...)De Puys, son-in-law of Josse Badius and libraire jure of Paris University, published from 1549 to 1588 in Paris. The most famous book of his shop is the first edition of Bodin's Les six livres de la republique (1576). The indices of Adams and BL/STC record c. 125 books of his press, but, besides ours, only another three in Greek letters: a Horae of 1549, a Demosthenes (1570) and a Lucianus (1572). The Greek type used here measures 90-91mm (20 lines). The beautiful initials and head-pieces are from the press of Robert Estienne. Since printing of Greek books seems to be uncommon for Du Puys, printers may have been Guillaume Morel, active 1549-1564, and Royal Printer since 1555, or Robert Estienne II..

Rara edizione del 1558 di quest'opera scritta da Cristophe Longueil (1488-1522) umanista francescano. Nel 1517 Longueil strinse amicizia con Pietro Bembo e Jacopo Sadoleto ma questo non impedì che nei suoi confronti si scatenasse una forte campagna diffamatoria tanto che fu costretto a trafserirsi a Padova dove si spense. Ammiratore incondizionato di Cicerone, fu un grande propagandista del ciceronismo prima in Francia, poi a Roma. Questo suo epistolario non è una mera imitazione della produzione ciceroniana, ma denota una ricerca stilistica ed un'eleganza espositiva di rara freschezza e vivacità.

Lieve gora d'umidità al margine superiore da pag. 337 sino alla fine.

Enthusiastic of Cicero, was a great propagandist of Ciceronism in france then a Rome.

        Apologia adversus Amathum Lusitanum, cum censura in eiusdem enarrationes.

      - Venice, Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1558. 8vo (159 x 100mm). ff. (112), with printer's device on title; some slight dustsoiling on title, text a bit wrinkled, a very good copy in later half vellum. First edition of Mattioli's famous and vicious attack on Amatus Lusitanus (Joao Rodrigues de Castelo Branco), his rival as an editor of and commentator on Dioscorides. Mattioli intentionally misspelt Amatus's name as Amathus (meaning simpleton).Mattioli's censures concern Amatus' presumed misidentification of plants or lack of erudition in his edition of Dioscorides (Venice, 1553). Amatus (1511-1568), a Portuguese Jew, provided extensive determinations of the Dioscoridean plants, and included a number of Arabic plants in his commentaries. He fell victim to Mattioli's academic wrath, as did all other rival commentators on Dioscorides. 'Through charges levelled by Mattioli, Amatus (whose name Mattioli persisted in altering to Amathus, meaning simpleton) was hunted from place to place by the Inquisition. He finally obtained refuge in the Jewish colony in Salonica, but lost his livelihood, his reputation, and the manuscript of a translation of Avicenna that he had nearly completed' (Anderson, An illustrated history of the herbals). This work was reprinted as an appendix to the 1558 edition of Mattioli's Dioscorides, and in almost all subsequent editions.Provenance: Horticultural Society of New York, bequest of Kenneth K. Mackenzie October 1934, with bookplate; Robert de Belder.Hunt 78; Waller 6320; OCLC lists copies (besides Hunt) at Harvard, New York Botanical Garden Library, College of Physicians Philadelphia, and Wellcome.

II: Fifth Greek edition, 2nd bilingual. Writing of the missing letter 'a' in Synesios, Hieronymus: " In 1551/52 and again at the beginning of 1552 Naogeorg (Kirchmeyer, 1511-1563) was residing in Basel, in 1557-59 he is in Stuttgart. His letter of dedication to the mayor and council of his place of birth near Straubing is dated Stuttgart, 1. March 1559. This letter of over 40 pp. reached the printer in Basle one year after the translation and printing of the Synesios text. For this reason it has been bound instead of gathering a and has the gathering marks a - y". Synesios of Kyrene (c. 370 - c. 415 A.D.) belonged to the so-called Alexandrian School of Neoplatonism, i.e. in the direction of the successors of Plotin, who placed scientific character above religious-metaphysical ideas. Thus, in his later office of Bishop (from 410; it is reported that he allowed himself to be baptised only after he took office) he saw no contradiction with philosophy. Especially in his hymns, the connection between Christianity and Philosophy is a major theme. His numerous letters are an important witness to his thoughts and, at the same time, give clear insights into the period. "This collection (of letters), of which there are 156 written by him, offer us a biography and a history of the culture, behind which we can perceive the imposing personality of the academic author" (Lesky p.987). Phalaris, from 570 - 555 Tyrant of Akragas (Agrigent) and, traditionally, the archetype of the terrible tyrant, has not been considered to be the author of the collection of letters which were issued under his name since the end of the 17th century.

        Il Petrarca Con L’Espositione D’Alessandro Vellutello…

      Venice: Gabriel Giolito De Ferrari, 1558 [colophon dated 1560]., 1560. 4to. ff. [12], 216. several text woodcuts incl. full-page map of Vaucluse & double portrait of Petrarca & Laura. woodcut ornaments & historiated initials. woodcut architectural border on title with printer’s phoenix device. woodcut printer’s device at end. 19th century calf, rebacked (corners repaired with cloth tape, light dampstaining in outer gatherings, repair to inner blank margin of final leaf, few passages on pp. 142-43 crossed out). a few marginal old ms. notes. The first Giolito edition with these particular woodcuts appeared in 1544 (colophon dated 1543). "When we attempt to estimate Petrarch’s position in the history of modern culture, the first thing which strikes us is that he was even less eminent as an Italian poet than as the founder of Humanism, the inaugurator of the Renaissance in Italy. What he achieved for the modern world was not merely to bequeath to his Italian imitators masterpieces of lyrical art unrivalled for perfection of workmanship, but also and far more, to open out for Europe a new sphere of mental activity. Standing within the threshold of the middle ages, he surveyed the kingdom of the modern spirit, and, by his own inexhaustible industry in the field of scholarship and study, he determined what we call the revival of learning.".

        Altercacion, en forme de dialogue,

      [Guyon Boudeville, pour] Antoine André, A Tolose 1558 - de l'Empereur Adrian, et du philosophe Epictéte, contenant Soixante & tréze Quéstions, & autant de réponses, rendu, de Latin en François. par monsieur maître Iean de Coras, Docteur és droits, & Conseiller du Roi, au Parlement de Tolose, aveq la Paraphrase, du même Autheur. Petit in-4 de (6) ff., 322 pp., la dernière non chiffrée: maroquin brun, dos à nerfs richement orné, triple filet doré encadrant les plats, coupes filetées or, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrures (Hardy). Edition originale de la traduction française par Jean de Coras, dédiée au dauphin, François de Valois, futur roi François II. Belle marque gravée de l?imprimeur au verso du dernier feuillet. L'Altercacion, tirée du Manuel d?Epictète se présente sous la forme d'un dialogue entre le philosophe Epictète et l'empereur Hadrien. Le jeu des questions-réponses porte sur divers sujets de morale ou religieux, ponctuées de maximes, devinettes et courts poèmes. On connaît, au Moyen Age, des traductions en langue occitane et catalane de ce texte composé à l?origine en vers. Cette version française en prose, très augmentée, est l'oeuvre du juriste calviniste Jean de Coras (Toulouse 1513 - Paris 1572), l'un des martyrs de la Saint-Barthélémy, qui fut rapporteur au procès de Martin Guerre. En français réformé. Remarquable impression de Guyon Boudeville, l?un des plus brillants imprimeurs toulousains, mort prématurément en 1562 en raison de ses opinions religieuses. Dès 1555, il abandonne l?orthographe ordinaire pour adopter une orthographe inspirée des théories de Jacques Peletier du Mans et de Ronsard. Il remplace notamment tion par cion et ction par xion ; il bannit le y et le s muet est remplacé par un accent circonflexe (ainsi est est-il orthographié êt), etc. Les livres sortis de ses presses de 1556 à 1559 adoptent tous cette orthographe nouvelle, qui s?inscrit dans les premiers combats pour la langue française au XVIe siècle et l?établissement d?une graphie plus proche de la phonétique. (cf. Nina Catach, L?Orthographe française à l?époque de la Renaissance, pp. 201-202 et 388). Très bel exemplaire, réglé et finement relié par Hardy. Il provient de la bibliothèque du docteur Danyau, avec son ex-libris. Répertoire bibliographique des livres imprimés en France au seizième siècle, XX, Toulouse, par J. Mégret et L. Desgraves, p. 143, n° 119 : le bibliographe signale aussi, au n° 120, une autre émission à la même date, toujours imprimée par G.

        La premiere (-seconde) partie de l'histoire entiere des Poissons. Composee premierement en Latin... Avec leurs pourtraits au naif.

      1558. Lion, M. Bonhome, 1558. 2 parts in one volume. Folio (278 x 203mm). pp. (12), 418, (14); pp.(4), 181, (1 blank), (10), with woodcut portrait of Rondelet and printer's devise (both repeated) and about 420 fine woodcuts of fishes, shells and some other marine animals. Contemporary vellum. A fine copy of the first French edition of the most important work on fishes published in the 16th century. It covers more species (over 300) than the works of Belon (1553) or Salviani (1554-57). For over a century the work remained unchallenged as the standard work on the subject. The original Latin edition with the same woodcuts was published by the same publisher in 1554-55. Apart from fishes over a hundred molluscs are illustrated. "In his own day Rondelet was almost as well known as an anatomist as a zoologist. A popular lecturer, Rondelet attracted scholars from all over Europe: Coiter and Bauhin; L'Ecluse; L'Obel... Gesner and Aldrovandi also studied briefly under him ... For those fish he could inspect on the coast of Languedoc, Rondelet is thorough and usually accurate; the work long remained the basic guide to the region" (DSB). One index leaf with some marginal discoloration of the paper, and a small marginal black spot on another leaf. Small damage to spine. Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Eduard de Laplane, as well as an old inscription on title dated 1618. Nissen ZBI, 3475; Wood p. 541..

      Title within woodcut border & numerous woodcut illus. in the text. 8 p.l., 168 leaves. Small 4to, cont. limp vellum. [Venice: Comin da Trino for C. T. de' Navò], 1558. Third edition of the first systematic book on mining and metallurgy; according to Cyril Stanley Smith, the second edition of 1550 and our edition are far superior to the first edition of 1540 for in that earlier edition "the type is worn, poorly aligned, and arranged in a solid mass, unrelieved by paragraphing."-Smith & Gnudi, The Pirotechnia (1943), pp. xix-xx. Biringuccio (1480-1539?), after travelling throughout Italy and Germany, inspecting metallurgical operations and running an iron mine and forge at Boccheggiano, was appointed director of the mint at Siena. He later cast cannon and built fortifications for the Este and Farnese families. At the time of his death he was head of the papal foundry and director of papal munitions at Rome. This work embraces the whole field of technology. It "was written for the practicing metallurgist, foundryman, dyer, type-founder, glass-maker, and maker of gunpowder, fireworks and chemicals used in warfare."-Dibner, Heralds of Science, 38-(1st ed. of 1540). "Virtually all of Biringuccio's descriptions are original. He is important in art history for his description of the peculiarly Renaissance arts of casting medallions, statues, statuettes, and bells. His account of typecasting, given in considerable detail, is the earliest known. The Pirotechnia contains eighty-three woodcuts, the most useful being those depicting furnaces for distillation, bellows mechanisms, and devices for boring cannon and drawing wire... "The Pirotechnia is a prime source on many practical aspects of inorganic chemistry. Biringuccio emphasizes the adaptation of minerals and metals to use -- their alloying, working, and especially the art of casting, of which he writes in great detail. In this area he is far better than the two other sixteenth-century authors with whom he is inevitably compared, Georgius Argicola and Lazarus Ercker... "Biringuccio's approach is in strong conflict with that of the alchemists, whose work he evaluates in eleven pages of almost modern criticism, distinguishing their practical achievements from their theoretical motivations... "Biringuccio has been called one of the principal exponents of the experimental method."-D.S.B., II, p. 143. A fine crisp copy.

There is a little worm damage to the page lining of the vellum, and a very small amount to the end papers. The text block is not affected by worm. There is a pale stain to the first few pages (inc title) but quite light, and not affecting legibility. Throughout the book, the text block has been somewhat zealously trimmed to the top edge. This has affected a few of the page headers, but not the text. Contemporary owner’s name scribbled out to the title page. Some early marginalia in ink scattered throughout. Overall a decent copy. St Vincent Ferrer (1350-1419) was a Spanish Dominican Friar. Known as a missionary. During the great schizm, he supported the Avignon Popes (although later transferred his allegiance). His particular interest was in converting Jews, which he did with a combination of persuasion and persecution. anti-Semitic violence often followed in his wake. He died in 1419 in France and was buried in Vannes Cathedral. The printing press of Filippo and Bernardo Giunti was one of the leading Florence printing houses of the Sixteenth century. They also had printing presses in Venice and Lyon. They were mainly involved in printing Roman Catholic religious texts and music, but they were also effectively the official press of the Grand Dukes of Tuscany. [xxxii], 1-752 pp.

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1558. Small octavo, printed in italic and roman letter, xxx, [2], 341 leaves numbered on rectos only, with a woodcut of the stars of the Southern Cross and six woodcut plans of Ethiopian churches; a fine copy in eighteenth-century English red morocco, gilt-ruled borders on the sides with flower-pieces at the corners, spine panelled in gilt between raised bands, dark green leather label; spine slightly darkened; marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; in a red morocco folding case, ornately gilt. With the Southern Cross: one of the great travel books of the Renaissance. A delightful copy of the first edition in French, in a most attractive English binding. Alvares' book includes a narrative of great significance to the southern hemisphere and the way there: Corsali's description of his identification of the Southern Cross along with the famous image illustrating the cross. The main purpose of the book was to print the eyewitness account, by its chaplain, of the first Portuguese embassy to reach Ethiopia in 1520-26, here in its first separate edition in French. First published in Portuguese in 1540 as "Verdadera informaçam das terras do Preste Ioam", this was the earliest first-hand description of Ethiopia by a known European and of great importance for the history of the country, not least for its unequivocal identification of King David of Ethiopia as the Prester John of the Indies, the legendary figure who had inspired Christendom since the twelfth century. Ethiopia in the sixteenth century stood for something even more exotic than it actually was, often appearing in early texts signifying a place as far away geographically and culturally as it was possible to imagine. From Herodotus onwards, the name was often used to mean all of the African continent south of Egypt. The book also includes the description of the first identification of the Southern Cross. Alvares's narrative is preceded in this edition (though not in the original Portuguese version) by the two letters of Andrea Corsali, included here because this Florentine traveller ended his days in Ethiopia. In 1515 Corsali, an Italian under the patronage of the Medici family, accompanied a Portuguese voyage down the African coast, around the Cape of Good Hope, and into the Southern and Indian Oceans, making landfall at Goa on the Indian coast, later travelling down to Cochin at the foot of India. After rounding the Cape, he had observed the curious behaviour of an unrecorded group of stars, which he described and illustrated in a letter - the first of the two printed here - narrating his voyage that he sent back from Cochin to his patron Giuliano de Medici in Florence. Corsali's description and illustration of the constellation was the first to outline its shape in detail as a cross: after the publication of his Lettera the term "cross" or "crosiers" recurs frequently and in 1606, for example, Quiros, on his quest for the Southern Continent, instructed his captains to ascertain their position at night by the "crucero". The narrative also contains a tantalising reference to a continental land in the vicinity of New Guinea, which alone would make the Lettera an important element in the canon of pre-Cook discovery of Australia and the Pacific. The first editions of Corsali's two letters appeared in Italian in 1516 and 1517 respectively and both are of utmost rarity; the important 1516 letter is known in only three copies, one of which at one time belonged, as did this book, to the controversial English collector and aesthete William Beckford. This is one of two issues of the first edition in French, this having the imprint of Christopher Plantin; the other issue had the imprint of Jean Bellère, who was also the translator. No edition in English would appear for more than three hundred years. This copy has an exceptionally good provenance, having belonged to William Beckford (Hamilton Palace Sale, 30 June 1882, lot 175); Joannes Gennadius (Sotheby's, 2 March 1898), note on flyleaf; Henry J.B. Clements, with his bookplate; the explorer Wilfred Thesiger, with his bookplate (Sotheby's, Nov 21, 1991, lot 347); Henry Winterton (Sotheby's, May 28, 2003, lot 18); and finally the great collector of Ethiopian material (among many other things) Bent Juel-Jensen, with his distinctive Amharic bookplate.
