Sein Widmungsbrief an Bürgermeister und Rat des seinem Geburtsort nahe gelegenen Straubing datiert von Stuttgart, 1. März 1559; er ist somit mit seinen über 40 Seiten fast ein Jahr nach dem Abschluss des Druckes des Synesios- Textes und der Übersetzung abgeschlossen worden und in Basel eingetroffen. So geht er auf drei Lagen ??-??anstelle einer Lage a der Lage b voraus". Synesios von Kyrene (ca. 370 - um 415 n. Chr.) gehört zur sog. alexandrinischen Schule des Neuplatonismus, d.h. zu der Richtung in der Nachfolge Plotins, die Wissenschaftlichkeit höher ansetzte als religiös-metaphysisches Denken. So hat er in seinem späteren Amt als Bischof (ab 410; es wird überliefert, daß er sich erst nach seiner Wahl habe taufen lassen) keinen Widerspruch zur Philosophie gesehen.

Lugduni, apvd Matthiam Bonhome, 1558. 2 parts (bound in 1). Royal-8vo (197 x 140 mm). pp. 20, 240; pp. 135. With woodcut portrait of the author and 466 fine woodcuts of fishes, shells and other sea animals. 18th century half calf, floral gilt ornamented spine with red label, marbled sides (top of spine a bit chipped). A mint copy of the first and only edition. Boussuet's epitome in Latin (and some in Greek) verses of Rondelet's 'Libri de Piscibus'. It is illustrated with the same excellent 466 woodcuts by George Reverdy, a most skilful draughtsman working in Lyon from 1529 to 1564, as occur in Rondelet's work. He admirably captured the features of the great variety of fishes and shells. The cuts include the famous 'monk' and 'bishop' sea monster, of which according to Rondelet, the first was seen in Norway and the second found in Poland in 1531. The verses of Boussuet, a doctor in medicine, include much information about the taste and nature of fish meat and shells. The first part deals with fish only, the second part largely deals with shells. Nissen ZBI, 511; Paleari-Henssler, 'Bibliografia Latino-Italiana di Gastronomia', p. 115..

MATTIOLI, P.A.
1558. 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.

Lugduni [Lyon] : Ioan Tornaesium, 1558 An extremely rare early work comprising verse on sections of Genesis and of Exodus bound together with extensive woodcut illustrations by Bernard Saloman, a french painter, draftsman and engraver. In part contemporary binding with leather over wooden boards, with a supplementary leather 'folder' binding probably from the 1800's to protect it. With blank leaves interwoven which have been filled with annotations from the various owners - including some musical notation and an ink drawing. 230 illustrations/designs. The book was initially owned by Joannes-Daniel Baro, Winnenberg. There is a coloured armorial device pasted inside the front board and some note pages that look to have been authored by him. From our research he looks to have been a Justice/local official. There is ownership marking from Antonius Thonnar Prior, Pastor Stabulensis, 28 January 1749. Numerous other owners have made notes - some scholarly, some reflective, some of the 'I am practising writing' variety. Most notes are in latin, with some greek. Extensive work was done in the 1800's probably by Arthur Dalrymple whose armorial bookplate is on the inside of the newer leather folder (which has marbled paper, blind stamping to the boards and red title labels). This work replaced the spine and recovered the wooden boards. The original leather was then laid over and from what remains, it clearly had an elaborate gold design and a large crest in the middle of the front board.

His writings "give => a vivid picture of Christian life in Carthage, especially during the persecutions, and throw light on the organization of the Church not only in Africa from Mauretania to Tripolitania, but also in Spain, Gaul, and Rome itself. At the same time they reveal the character and activities of Cyprian, a bishop often in peril of his life but totally dedicated to his flock, and while a leader of men, beloved and respected by Christian and pagan alike, yet the object of slander and opposition from a handful of his clergy" (NCE). The text is in Latin, printed in roman and italic, enlivened by handsome woodcut initials of various design and size; the printer's large device of a three-headed Hermes holding a caduceus appears on both the title-page and final verso. Printer Hervagius (Johann Herwagen, 1497– ca. 1558) moved to Basel from Strasbourg in 1528 to marry the widow of Johann Froben and take part in Froben's famous printing firm there; in 1531, he established his own press at the Nadelberg, Froben's house and the former residence of Erasmus. Some of the first products of Herwagen's press were works by Erasmus, who also edited the present text for the first edition by Froben in 1520.

MIZAULD, Antoine. (Antonii Mizaldi Monluciani).:
Lutetiæ (Paris): Jacobum Keruer, 1558.. Small octavo (110 x 70mm). ff. 158. including a 5 page bibliography at the end. Later full vellum with yapp edges and leather label with gilt titles to spine. Floral endpapers in pink, green and yellow. Green silk page-marker. Printer's woodcut device to title page, head- and tail-pieces and decorated capitals to the epistle at the beginning of each of the four parts. A little soiling to vellum, faded ink name to title page and very occasional underlining or marginal notes by an early hand. Light toning to pages otherwise in excellent condition internally. Stated third edition in the title, but no earlier editions are mentioned in the book list printed at the end, and both Ferguson and Wellcome list this same title. Perhaps it is an early example of a familiar marketing ploy found throughout the history of publishing. There are no recent auction records for this title and it is not in Caillet, Bibliotheca Esoterica or L'Art Ancien. Ferguson, in his Books of Secrets, mentions it among titles he has only heard of, not seen. Ferguson, Books of Secrets [Part IV p. 4]; Wellcome [4352]

Lugduni, apvd Matthiam Bonhome, 1558. 2 parts (bound in 1). Royal-8vo (197 x 140 mm). pp. 20, 240; pp. 135. With woodcut portrait of the author and 466 fine woodcuts of fishes, shells and other sea animals. 18th century half calf, floral gilt ornamented spine with red label, marbled sides (top of spine a bit chipped). A mint copy of the first and only edition. Boussuet's epitome in Latin (and some in Greek) verses of Rondelet's 'Libri de Piscibus'. It is illustrated with the same excellent 466 woodcuts by George Reverdy, a most skilful draughtsman working in Lyon from 1529 to 1564, as occur in Rondelet's work. He admirably captured the features of the great variety of fishes and shells. The cuts include the famous 'monk' and 'bishop' sea monster, of which according to Rondelet, the first was seen in Norway and the second found in Poland in 1531. The verses of Boussuet, a doctor in medicine, include much information about the taste and nature of fish meat and shells. The first part deals with fish only, the second part largely deals with shells. Nissen ZBI, 511; Paleari-Henssler, 'Bibliografia Latino-Italiana di Gastronomia', p. 115.

Tagli marmorizzati policromi. Impresa in xilografia al frontespizio e al colophon. Capilettera figurati elegantemente incisi in xilografia, finalini xilografici. Annotazioni di antica mano al contropiatto anteriore. Restauri marginali alle prime 10 pp., sparse bruniture e aloni. Discreto stato. Prima rara edizione. Scrive il Gamba: "Qualche esemplare... ha nel frontespizio una diversa impresa, ora intagliata in legno, ed ora in rame, portante un Acciarino da fucile". Il nostro esemplare appartiene a questa più rara tiratura; la tiratura più corrente reca anche nel frontespizio l'impresa del liocorno. L'opera venne composta da Annibal Caro, nascosto sotto la finzione letteraria dell'inesistente dicitura "Academici dei Banchi" (Predella, Buratto e Fedocco sono nomi fittizi del Caro medesimo); il volume innescò un'aspra polemica di carattere linguistico e politico tra il Caro e Ludovico Castelvetro, che aveva giudicato severamente un sonetto in lode della casa di Valois ("Venite all"ombra dei gran gigli d"oro") scritto dal Caro nel 1553 (Manzoni cita il sonetto nei "Promessi Sposi", alludendo proprio alla diatriba letteraria di cui esso fu il fomite). All'"Apologia" rispose poi in prima persona il Castelvetro, suscitando, come reazione a catena, alcuni violentissimi sonetti del Caro che diffondevano gravissime accuse contro il letterato modenese: ad esempio che avesse fat … [Click Below for Full Description]

MATTIOLI, P.A.
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.

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'Écluse; 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.

Prima edizione italiana in seconda tiratura ed unica cinquecentesca del Timeo, pubblicata inalterata pochi mesi dopo la prima, con la sola variante nella vignetta silografica al frontespizio, che riporta due satiri che sorreggono un candeliere con fuoco acceso e motto "lux fulget in tenebris " , invece di un anello con diamante intrecciato con un ramo di palma e uno di olivo con nastro e motto " Nil me durius."( riportata alla bianca finale); Considerato la continuazione della "Repubblica", come se dopo aver parlato dello Stato ideale, Platone volesse descrivere il mondo fisico in cui lo Stato deve operare, un mondo sensibile in continua mutazione non intelligibile con la ragione; in esso si parla in modo particolare del rapporto idee-cose e Platone si occupa del mondo fisico a tal punto che non è sbagliato definire il "Timeo" libro fisico (da "fusis", natura). Infatti Platone non si era ancora praticamente occupato del mondo sensibile se non per affermare che è una pallida copia del mondo delle idee e per evidenziare la sua inferiorità rispetto al mondo intellegibile. Dato che era un argomento meno importante e che il "filosofo" si muove tra le idee , Platone dedicò solo un' opera al mondo sensibile, che ci viene presentato come "il mondo in cui si muove l'uomo". … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEMISTIUS PERIPATETICUS (THEMISTIOS). - [THE EXTREMELY SCARCE FIRST PRINTING]
Venice, Hieronymus Scotus, 1558. Small folio. Nice, simple, contemporary full limp vellum. A few leaves evenly browned; a very nice and clean copy. Large oval woodcut portrait of Aristotle to title-page. Beautiful woodcut vignette at beginning, Two large, beautiful woodcut initials, woodcut printer's device at end. (4), 26 pp. + final blank. The exceedingly scarce very first printing of one of the most important paraphrases in the history of philosophy and science, that of Themistios on Book Lambda (Book XII) of Aristotle's Metaphysics, translated by Moyse Finzio. The present work constitutes perhaps the most important paraphrase of one of the most important chapters in the history of philosophy, science, and religion, that in which Aristotle writes about the Unmoved (and primary) Mover, a chapter of his "Metaphysics" which for millennia has dominated almost all branches of Western thought. Theophrastos' paraphrase was of seminal importance to the understanding of Aristotle's concept of the Unmoved Mover in the Renaissance and consequently of the many controversies and debates that it caused. In the Renaissance, not least through Themistios' paraphrase and Scotum's first printing of it, Aristotle's concept of the Unmoved Mover as the first cause of everything in the Universe not only came to dominate much philosophical thought and became a main agent in the quest to unite religion and science (here especially physics and astronomy), it also came to play a dominant role in the emerging understanding of the universe as such. The present paraphrase by Themistios had early on b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Oporinus (1558). Sm-8vo. 253, (3) pp. (last blank). Contemporary vellum (soiled, spine defective. I: Second Greek edition, first bilingual. 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.

Writing on the origin of mountains, he describes the eroding action of water as their cause with a perspicacity much in advance of his time" (PMM 79).

NEO-LATIN POETRY. [FLAMINIO (Marcantonio)]
Venetiis Presb. Hieronymus Liljus. & socii excudebant, 1558. Small 8vo, 145 x 90 mms., ff. 183 [1], ornamental woodcut on title-page, bound in 18th century maroon goatskin, with elaborate ornamental gilt borders on cover, spine ornately gilt, all edges gilt; small piece torn from upper corner of front free end-paper, but a fine copy, with the armorial bookplate of the Dogmersfield Library on the front paste-down marbled end-paper. Although Marcus Antonius Flaminius (Marcantonio Flaminio, 1497/98 - 1550) is perhaps the most notable of the poets in this volume (hence his name on the title-page), his poetic colleagues are probably just as distinguished: Baldassare Castiglione, Pietro Bembo, Andrea Navagero, and Giovanni Cotta. Flaminius' poems take up about two-thirds of the book, from folio 47 verso to the end. Maddison, Carol: Marcantonio Flaminio, Poet, Humanist and Reformer. London, Routledge, 1965.

View of the defeat of the Spanish Armada by the EnglishJohn Pine, publisherLondon: Bowles, 1739Copperplate engraving19 ¼? x 27?The defeat of the Spanish Armada is one of the most famous events in European history, when the simmering conflict between England and Spain escalated into open war at sea. In the late 16th century, Spain was a major power that ruled and colonized over much of the known world. King Philip II of Spain had been king consort of England until the death, in 1558, of his wife, the Catholic Queen Mary I of England, and he took exception to the policies pursued by her successor, his Protestant sister-in-law Queen Elizabeth I. Phillip believed that it was necessary to lead Protestant England back to the Catholic faith, by force if necessary, and received papal approval for an invasion of England. Also, Phillip was greatly angered by Queen Elizabeth?s support of the Dutch Protestants living in the Spanish Netherlands (modern day Holland and Belgium) that wanted independence from Spanish control.The Spanish Armada, considered the greatest navy in the world, was plagued from problems from the beginning. Phillip had appointed the Marquis of Santa Cruz as commander of the Spanish fleet, but later named the Duke of Medina Sidonia, who had no naval background, as commander. In 1587, knowing war with Spain was eminent, Sir Francis Drake, an English navigator and privateer, sailed into the Spanish harbor of Cadiz and destroyed 30 ships being assembled for the English invasion. The Spanish Armada first sailed in April 1588, hitting a terrible storm that damaged many s … [Click Below for Full Description]

MATTIOLI, P.A.
- 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.
