Agricola, Georg.
Basel, Froben, 1558.. (8), 470, (22) SS. Mit einem ganzseitigen Textholzschnitt. Rotbrauner Maroquinband des 17. Jahrhunderts auf vier Doppelbünden mit goldgeprägten Deckelfileten und ornamentalen Mittelstücken, Rückenschildchen und -vergoldung. Folio.. Sehr seltene zweite Ausgabe der erstmals 1548 veröffenlichten Schriften Agricolas zu Geologie, Mineralogie, Bergwesen und Alchemie. Enthält neben "De natura fossilium" (lt. Grolier/Horblit 2a the "first handbook of modern systematic mineralogy") die ebenfalls nie als Einzelausgaben erschienenen Schriften "De ortu et causis subterraneorum" ("A treatise on geology discussing underground heat and vapors", Stillwell), "De natura eorum quae effluunt" ("relates to subterranean waters and gases, ibidem) sowie "De veteribus & novis metallis". "In 'De Ortu et Causis Subterraneorum' Agricola made an important contribution to physical geology. He recognized the influence of water and wind on the shaping of the landscape and gave a clear account of the order of the strata he saw in the mines. 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). Der zuletzt beigegebene "Bermannus" bringt am Ende das erste lateinisch-deutsche Wörterbuch bergmännischer Begriffe. - Der schöne Holzschnitt zeigt Musteranlagen von Thermal- und Heilbädern. - Durchgehend meist in der oberen Hälfte etwas wasserrandig.

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.

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. Nella prima parte la sua vita, poi l'epistolario. Numerose note manoscritte all'interno. Marca editoriale all'ultima carta. Titolo manoscritto al taglio inferiore.

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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caro, Annibale:
Parma, Seth Viotto, 1558.. 4°. 268 SS., 8 Bll. Leder d. 18 Jh. mit reicher Rücken-, Deckel und Stehkantenvergoldung. Adams C 739; Gamba 276. Erste Ausgabe dieses elegant gedruckten Werkes zu einer der berühmtesten literarischen Fehden des 16. Jahrhunderts. Annibale Caro (1507-1566) verteidigt hier sein Gedicht "Venite all'ombra dei gran gigli d'oro" zum Lob des Hauses Valois gegen die Kritik von Lodovico Castelvetro. Der Streit griff schnell ins Persönliche über und nahm fuer Castelvetro ein böses Ende, da Caro ihn als Übersetzer Melanchthons bei der Inquisition denunzierte, was zu seiner Exkommunikation und einer Gefängnisstrafe führte. - Die vorliegende Erstausgabe mit zwei bemerkenswerten Druckermarken: vorne der Hahn einer Pistole in einer figürlichen Bordüre, hinten ein Einhorn. - Wenig gebräunt oder fleckig, hübsches Jugenstil-Exlibris. Der elegante Einband berieben, oberes Kapital etwas abgeschabt, insgesamt jedoch schön. - First edition in an elegant 18th century richly gilt full calf binding, rubbed, upper spine with some little scratch but nice altogether. Inside little browning or spotting, few old inscriptions, nice bookplate from about 1900.

Binding with mild rubbing to spine, slightly more to the front joint which is split about a third of the way up. Near Fine and quite scarce. Two small octavo (4-1/8" x 6-1/8") volumes bound together in 19th century full brown blindstamped morocco with gilt lettering on the spine. [246]; [74] pages. First published in 1553 and 1554 respectively, the first title illustrated with 231 delicate emblem woodcuts and the second title with 69 woodcuts, all attributed to Bernard Salomon, as well as 2 designs and title borders.

The first edition of Paradin's text appeared in 1553 and contained only 199 woodcuts. Thereafter another 29 illustrations were cut for the Italian edition of 1554 and a further three for editions in 1554-1555. The present edition was the second printing of the complete set of woodcuts. OCLC locates only 4 copies of the first title and 2 of the second. Bookplate of Mexborough on the front pastedown and a doctor's modern bookplate on the verso of the front endpaper.
