RONDELET, G.
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.

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. 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.

Jacob BOS (attivo 1549 - 67)
1558. "Acquaforte, 1558, nella parte inferiore della stampa, al centro, "Ornithon sive Aviarium M Varronis Pyrro Ligorio neap inv", più in basso, "Romae MDLVIII/Michaelis Tramezini formis". La bella tavola mostra la ricostruzione delineata da Pirro Ligorio della celebre Uccelleria di Varrone, in latino Ornithon o Aviarium, nella sua villa a Cassino, descritta dall'autore nel suo trattato "De re rustica" (Libro III, V-VI), e pubblicata per la prima volta da Michele Tramezzino a Roma nel 1558. Come per altre lastre basate su lavori di Ligorio ed edite da Tramezzino, è plausibile, anche per evidenti ragioni stilistiche, che anche in questo caso l'incisore sia Jacob Bos. Sono note due copie di questa lastra edite una a Venezia da Bolognino Zaltieri, e l'altra a Roma da Claudio Duchetti, a firma Ambrogio Brambilla. Huelsen, che non conosce questa edizione di Tramezzino, considera l'edizione di Zaltieri come originaria, e quella di Duchetti una copia successiva. In realtà, alla luce di questa tavola con l'excudit di Tramezzino e la data 1558, è evidente che questa prova è quella originaria, realizzata durante il periodo di collaborazione tra Pirro Ligorio e l'editore Tramezzino. Questa tiratura è di estrema rarità. Le copie edite da Duchetti si trovano, invece, inserite nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""stella nel cerchio"", margini bianchi aggiunti, come consuetudine per questa tipologia di incisioni, in ottimo stato di conservazione" "Etching, 1558, Lettered within image "Ornithon sive Aviarium M Varronis Pyrro L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gioseffo Zarlino (1517-1590) laid down the theoretical basis for almost all aspects of modern music, for which he was cited as the ultimate authority for the next two hundred years. He codified the contrapuntal techniques of the great composers of his time and was the first to explain the modern tonal system of major and minor modes. In the terza parte Zarlino treats counterpoint in a conservative manner, particularly regarding the treatment of dissonances, provoking widespread attacks by Vincenzo Galilei and others.

ALVARES, Francisco.
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; marbled endpapers, all edges gilt; in a red morocco folding case, ornately gilt. A delightful copy of the first edition in French, in a most attractive English binding. This is the great collector William Beckford's copy of the book, subsequently having belonged to a number of other significant collectors including Wilfred Thesiger. While its main purpose is to describe the important Portuguese embassy to Ethiopia of 1520-26, it also 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 narrative of the embassy to Ethiopia by its chaplain Alvares was first published in Portuguese in 1540 as "Verdadera informaçam das terras do Preste Ioam": it was the earliest first-hand description of Ethiopia by a known European. Alvares' description was 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

COMMANDINO, Federico. [Ptolemy, Ptolemaeus]
Venice: Aldus (Paolo Manuzio), 1558. First edition of Commandino's commentary. The Greek text of this writing by Ptolemy on stereographic projection is lost, a Latin version appeared in Basel in 1536, but this is the first separate and best edition, translated from the Arabic and edited by Commandino with his commentary. The 'Planisphaerium' concerns the stereographic projection of the celestial sphere on a plane with the south celestial pole at the center, a technique which Ptolemy used for mapping points in the heavens on the plane of the equator. In working with this projection and conic sections, Commandino noticed that conic sections can be considered sections in visual cones or perspective images. This inspired him to include in his work a study of perspective which occupies the first nineteen leaves of his commentary, and represents one of the earliest mathematical formulations of a method already widely employed by artists. (For a detailed account of this work see Andersen's The Geometry of an Art, pp.138-145). Houzeau & Lancaster 769; Riccardi I, 360.1; Adams P-2242; Sarton I, 277 and II, 616; Renouard 173.4; STC 543. Two parts bound in one volume (as issued). Small 4to: 211 x 156 mm. Contemporary limp vellum. ff. 3, (1:blank), 37, (1:printers device); 28. [complete].

MAUROLICO, Francesco.
Messina: Pietro Spira, 1558. First edition, 'excessively rare' (Sotheran, 1917), of Maurolico's Latin translations of works on 'sphaerics' by four ancient Greek writers, Autolycus, Menelaus, Euclid and Theodosius, those of the first two authors constituting the first printed editions. Maurolico, one of the most original mathematicians of the 16th century, appended his own original propositions on sphaerics, probably based on astronomical observations made from 1548 to 1550 in Sicily, as well as a number of trigonometrical tables, including the first printed tables of secants. Sphaerics, the geometry of the sphere, was regarded by the ancient Greeks as a branch of astronomy rather than of geometry. The order in which the works are presented by Maurolico is pedagogical rather than historical. He begins with the Sphaerica of Theodosius of Bithynia (ca. 160 BC - ca. 100 BC), a mathematician and astronomer who lived in Tripoli on the Fenicia coast who is thought to be a younger contemporary of Hipparchus, the inventor of trigonometry (although no work by Hipparchus on this subject has survived). Arranged in three books, the Sphaerica discusses the properties of circular arcs lying on the surface of a sphere, notably great circles. Maurolico's version is based on a Latin manuscript of Plato of Tivoli (in turn prepared on the basis of an Arabic translation). The Sphaerica first appeared in the compendium Sphaera published at Venice in 1518; the first separate Latin edition at Vienna in 1529; and the editio princeps of the Greek text at Paris in the same year as the present wor … [Click Below for Full Description]

With printer's device on title, page, a headpiece and 2 large decorated 10-line woodcut initials. Italic letter. 28 lines to the page. Side notes. Capital spaces, with guide letters. Early Italian translation of classic works on Roman religion and on Roman military practice with the nice woodcuts by Eskrich. The ¨Castrametation¨ is a standard study, published 1555 at Lyon. Castrametation is a miltary term from the Romans, meaning the technique of choosing and arranging fortified encampments (castra). The greater part of the volume is taken by the discourse on that subject. The treatise on the Roman and Greek baths ¨De Bagni et Essercitii Antichi de Greci, & de Romani¨ starts on leaf 59. With Italian annotations in ink, partly dated 1815, on old fly-leaves. Skilful repairs to blank corners of title page and a number of leaves. Upper margin sometimes cut a bit short, but not affecting text or woodcuts. A few stains. Complete including the large folding woodcut plan ¨Figura del Campo de Romani¨ in 2 parts (issued as such).

La première avait paru en 1545. L'édition originale du texte de Bassantin fut publiée en 1555 à Lyon chez Jean de Tournes sous le titre "Paraphrase de l'Astrolabe". L'auteur décrit méthodiquement et avec un grand souci du détail, dans une première partie et en 43 propositions, les usages astronomiques et astrologiques de l'astrolabe ; et dans une seconde partie, qui compte 12 propositions, son utilisation pour connaitre les hauteurs et longueurs. 48 figures en bois dans le texte représentent le système astrologique pré-Copernicien établit par Jacquinot, puis de nombreux détails des différentes parties dont se composent un Astrolabe, enfin les diverses méthodes pour l'utiliser en tant qu'outil permettant de mesurer les distances, les hauteurs et les profondeurs : ces dernières figures montrent des personnages en train d'établir des mesures. Bel exemplaire, enrichi, sur les premières gardes, des deux jolis croquis d'une main du XVIe siècle.

PORTA (Giambattista della)
Naples, Matthias Cancer, 1558 In-4, (16), 163 et (1) pages ; veau brun moderne dans le goût de l'époque. Aux origines de l'hermétisme moderne et de la magie naturelle Première description de la chambre noire. Première édition, rare, de ce texte paradigme des savoirs de la Renaissance qui contient, entre autres, la toute première description de la chambre noire ou camera obscura, autrement dit la description du premier dispositif technique permettant la projection d'une image. A l'instar de son contemporain Jérôme Cardan, Porta, en réaction au modèle et à la méthode aristotélicienne, s'intéresse, comme l'indique le titre de l'ouvrage, aux irrégularités, merveilles et secrets inexpliqués du monde naturel. Les quatre livres contiennent « des formules de médecine hermétique, des secrets de beauté, des recettes pour améliorer les produits du sol, des renseignements sur les teintures et les encres de sympathie, des tours de physique » (Dorbon 3731, à propos de la traduction de Rouen, 1620) ; et plus généralement, des observations sur des thèmes variés comme la géologie, l'optique, la médecine, les poisons, la cuisine, la métallurgie, le magnétisme, les parfums et cosmétiques, la poudre à canon, la cryptographie, etc. « Porta's first book, published in 1558 as Magiae naturalis, was a treatise on the secrets of nature, which he began collecting when he was fifteen. The secrets are arranged in four books, and the conception implied in the title is that natural magic is the perfection of natural philosophy and the highest science.

Bologna, Alessandro Benacci, 1558. 4to (192x135 mm). (4) leaves. Old vellum, a fine copy. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION, extremely rare (the publishing date is inferred from the activity dates of the typographer, 1558-1591). In the poem, which is addressed by the author to his brother, Tarinti narrates his horseback leisure trip from his town (probably Bologna) to Scandiano through Modena in a September day. He mentions the food he had and the people he met (especially the beautiful wife of the hotel keeper who host them near the river Secchia). In Modena he stayed at the house of the noble Boschetti family.Edit 16, CNCE73131 (only one copy in Bologna); USTC, 858090. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Fazello, Tommaso, OP.
1558. Folio (227 x 302 mm). (4), 616, (2) pp., 1 bl. f., (28) pp. With large woodcut on title page and double-page woodcut of Arabic characters. 17th-c. vellum. All edges sprinkled in red. First edition of this rare history of Sicily, compiled at the command of Paolo Giovio by the Sicilian-born Dominican friar Tommaso Fazello (1490-1570). Includes a double-page woodcut plate of an old inscription found on the walls of the Porta de' Patitelli, the so-called Torre Baych: it was formerly thought to be a Chaldaic inscription stating that the tower was built by a grandson of Esau. The tower has been since been demolished, but the inscription preserved, and subsequent scholarship identified the text as Quran verses dating from the fourth century after the Hijra. - With this work, the Dominican friar Tommaso Fazello (1498-1570) single-handedly created modern Sicilian historiography. He also rediscovered the ruins of the ancient Sicilian towns of Akrai (Palazzolo Acreide), Selinus (Selinunte), and Heraclea Minoa, as well as the Temple of Olympian Zeus at Akragas (Agrigento). The island was conquered by the Arabs in the 9th century and remained under Muslim suzerainity for two and a half centuries. The Arabs introduced new methods of irrigation, thereby significantly boosting agricultural development. Under their rule, Palermo rose to the rank of Sicily's foremost city. Sicilian towns were variously raided by Arab troops between 835 and 884. In the mid-11th century, the Muslim population made up more than two thirds of inhabitants, with Arabs concentrating around Palermo on the nort … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hieronimus COCK (Anversa 1510 - 1570)
1558. Acquaforte, circa 1558, firmata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Della serie Paesaggi con scene bibliche e mitologiche. Magnifica prova, particolarmente nitida e contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con inusuali margini oltre l'impronta del rame, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Probabilmente la composizione, come le altre della raccolta, deriva dai disegni di Mathys Cock, realizzati nel 1543. La serie è composta da quattordici incisioni, delle quali quattro recano incisa la data del 1558, riconducendo la datazione delle restanti opere allo stesso anno. Bellissimo esemplare di questa rara opera. Engraving, 1558 circa, signed on plate at lower left. Part of the series Landscapes with biblical and mythological scene. Excellent work, particularly clear and with good contrast, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with uncommon margins beyond the printmark, in good conditions. In all probability this composition, as many others of the same collection, comes from Mathys Cock's drawings, realized in 1543. The series consists of fourteen engravings, four of which show the date 1558, enabling us to approximately date the remaining works around this year. Magnificent example of this rare work.

Giovio Paolo
Michaelis Vascosani, 1558 - 1560. Volume in folio legato in pelle, piatti inquadrati da filetto in oro, fleuron centrale impresso in oro, titolo al tassello al dorso (professionalmente restaurato), sguardie, frontespizio del primo tomo (scritta a pennino), tre carte non numerate, 236 carte numerate, 18 carte col panegirico di Benedetto Varchi e gli indici, 349 carte numerate comprensive del frontespizio del secondo tomo, bianca, 17 carte d'indici. I difetti: l'angolo esterno inferiore presenta tracce d'umidità che hanno in qualche foglio reso fragile la carta, tracce di tarlo insistenti sempre nel margine inferiore quasi sempre all'angolo esterno, ben lontane dal testo, traccia (molto chiara) di gora nel secondo tomo, leggermente più marcata in alcune carte. Testo completo e collazionato, stampato su carta forte e nerbata. Il Giovio dedicò a questo capodopera 30 anni di lavoro. Esso riporta gli avvenimenti accaduti negli gli anni dal 1494 al 1547 ed occupa un posto notevole nella storiografia del Rinascimento. Copia in ancor buone condizioni, di grandissima qualità, terza eccellente edizione. Margini ampi, bell'impaginazione. Peccato i difetti (più d'immagine che sostanziali). Importante e raro

POLYBE;
A Lyon par Jean de Tournes 1558 In-folio de (16)-335-(17) pp., vélin souple à petits rabats (reliure de l'époque). Belle impression en lettres romaines et beau papier. Titre orné d'un encadrement gravé sur bois avec portrait de Polybe, orné de figures allégoriques ; 1 planche hors texte gravée, lettrines, bandeaux, culs-de-lampe gravés sur bois, ainsi qu'une marque typographique à la fin du volume (avec la devise : Son art en Dieu). Le titre est suivi d'une Epître du traducteur, Louis Maigret (i.e. Meigret), adressée à la Noblesse de France, du plan d'un camp romain sur une page dépliante, et d'une Ode par Marc-Antoine de Muret au signeur Louïs Maigret Lionnois. Maigret avait déjà donné une édition des cinq premiers livres dès 1542 (Paris, Denys Janot) puis, avec des fragments en 1552 (Paris, Groulleau), mais celle de de Tournes est plus ample, comme l'on voit, puisqu'elle contient de nouveaux fragments pour les livres IX à XV et XVII. Dès 1545, Maigret avait publié à Paris, chez Marnef Deux restes du sixiesme livre de Polybe, avec un extrait touchant l'assiette du camp Romain. De la bibliothèque Grand d'Hauteville avec deux ex-libris dont un armorié. Trésorier du roi de France à Amsterdam et banquier de la Cour de Suède - lui-même issu d'une famille de banquiers influents en Europe, Daniel Grand de la Chaise (1761-1828) épousa Anne-Philippine-Victoire de St-Légier et prit le nom de Grand d'Hauteville hérité du château vaudois de Saint-Légier-La Chiésaz en Suisse.

Plats ornés à froid, dos à nerfs. Reliure de l'époque, dos, plats et coins restaurés. Le titre est suivi de l'épître du traducteur, du plan d'un camp romain, et d'une Ode par Marc-Antoine de Muret à Louis Maigret. Il s'agit de la première traduction française des "Histoires" de Polybe, dont seulement une petite partie des quanrantes volumes nous sont parvenus.Maigret a enrichi cette nouvelle édition, par rapport à celle parue en 1542 chez Galliot Du Pré, des fragments retrouvés de 8 autres livres. En même temps que ses traductions, cet érudit lyonnais, publia deux traités de grammaire française en vue de simplifier l'ortographe en l'accordant avec la phonétique : en 1530 paraît "Le Traité touchant la commune écriture", et en 1550 "Le Tretté de la grammere francoeze" (chez Chrétien Wechel à Paris), qui est le premier traité de grammaire en français, dans lequel Maigret utilise son nouveau système orthographique, compromettant la réception favorable de sa grammaire. Ses idées seront reprises dans le "Traicté de la grammaire francoise" publié sept ans plus tard par Robert Estienne.

Exemplaire bien conforme à Baudrier (V-25) ; selon lui, cet ouvrage serait le second publié par Clément Baudin qui, en tant qu'imprimeur, a eu une production relativament réduite, se consacrant plutôt à une activité de commerce et d'exportation de livres.Célèbre écrivain et orateur chrétien de l'antiquité, Firmianus Lactance a gardé une grande audience intellectuelle en raison notamment de sa liberté d'esprit ; il ne croyait pas à l'éternité de Dieu et croyait à la magie, aux oracles sibyllins, à Hermès Trismégiste, etc. " Tout comme Epicure, il compara l'âme à une lumière qui est distincte du sang, mais s'en nourrit comme une lumière ordinaire se nourrit d'huile, opinion qu'il partage, du reste, avec plusieurs Pères de l'Eglise, qui ne considèrent point l'âme comme une substance spirituelle, mais comme de la matière subtile ".Reliure légèrement épidermée sur les plats et le dos, deux coins légèrement usés, trois petits trous au dos, court de tête avec quelques atteintes au titre courant.

Thevet, Andre
Aanvers [i.e. Antwerp]: De l'imprimerie de Christophle Plantin..., 1558. [8],163,[1] leaves. 20th-century red calf, spine gilt. Light rubbing to extremities. Bookplates on front pastedown. Light soiling, minor foxing. Very good. One of the foundation works of New World discovery, containing one of the first extensive descriptions of Canada, one of the three classic accounts of Brazil in the 16th century, and some of the best early illustrations of American Indians and American animals (including the first depiction of the buffalo). Thevet originally went to the New World with the Villegagnon expedition in 1555 to colonize Brazil. The whole first section of this work is devoted to Brazil, and with the narratives of Lery and Staden, it ranks as one of the great early accounts of that country, its natives and fauna. The latter includes one of the first descriptions of tobacco, which Thevet is generally credited with introducing to France upon his return. Borba de Moraes calls this volume "a book of the greatest importance to Brazil." It is equally important as one of the first works relating to Canada, which Thevet claims to have visited after coasting north during his return from Brazil to France. Thirty pages are devoted to a description of Canada and Newfoundland, preceded in date of publication only by Cartier, and Ramusio's description of Cartier. "One of the rarest of Canadiana, only a few copies are known. In this book one finds one of the earliest accounts of Newfoundland, and a first account of the fauna and flora in Canada" - Lande. There are extensive descriptions o … [Click Below for Full Description]
