Con gli essempi dell'antichità, che per la maggior parte concordano con la dottrina di Vitruvio. Con nove additioni, et castigationi.In Venetia, s.t. né d. (1562 ca.), ff. 74. Il titolo e le tav. sono identici a quelli dell'ediz. Sessa 1551, la quarta italiana. Fowler 320. - Quinto Libro nel quale si tratta di diverse forme di tempii sacri secondo il costume christiano, et al modo antico. Con nuova aggionta.Venetia, G.B. et M. Sessa, 1559, ff. 18. Seconda edizione italiana. Fowler 324. Il presente esemplare costituisce un tentativo di raccolta collettiva, anche se non omogenea (libri I-II e V di seconda ediz. ital., il III di quarta, il IV ristampa della quarta ediz. ital.), dei primi 5 libri del Serlio (com'è noto, i singoli libri furono pubblicati separatamente ed in successione irregolare a partire dal 1537 tra Lione e Venezia; la prima ediz. collettiva apparve soltanto nel 1584. Il ''primo libro'' ha per argomento i fondamenti matematici dell'architettura, il ''secondo'' la prospettiva e la scenografia; il ''terzo'', l'architettura antica; il ''quarto'', pubblicato per primo, tratta degli ordini architettonici sul fondamento di Vitruvio, ed ebbe immediatamente gran fama; il ''quinto'' è dedicato agli edifici sacri. L'architetto bolognese Serlio (1475-1554) per primo tentò di dare un completo sistema dell'architettura conforme ai postulati critici del Rinascimento, con vivace libertà di atteggiamento nei confronti dell'architettura antica. La rinomanza europea dei suoi trattati gli valse un invito in Francia da parte di Francesco I; del suo soggiorno francese rimangono tracce negli ultimi libri, che contengono importanti notizie sulla diffusione del Rinascimento in Francia e le influenze sull'architettura gotica locale. Discreto esempl.: i cinque libri usualmente rilegati in ordine cronologico di pubblicazione (titolo del libro primo facsimilato, abile restauro all'angolo infer. del f. 10 del I libro, rinforzi marginali e lieve alone giallo sugli ultimi ff. del medesimo e sui primi 4 ff. del II libro). Interessante nota di possesso al f. 26 del libro IV: ''Mi Hieronimo Marchetti per la nostra porta in Macerata''. Gerolamo Marchetti fu uno dei due ricchi mercanti che commissionò all'architetto Giuliano Torelli la costruzione in stile rinascimentale del palazzo dei Diamanti di Macerata, così chiamato per il taglio delle pietre della facciata che riprende quella ideata da Biagio Rossetti per l'omonimo palazzo di Ferrara. Alla fine del XVII secolo un nuovo proprietario, il Ferri, disegnò e realizzò l'elegante scalone interno. Il Palazzo è attualmente di proprietà della Banca d'Italia. La nota del Marchetti è inserita entro una delle porte ideate dal Serlio, probabilmente modello per il palazzo di Macerata. Fowler 306, 312, 320, 324. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Assertionis Lutheranae confutatio iuxta verum ac originalem archetypum ...

      Coloniae: Apud Maternum Cholinum 8vo (15.1 cm, 5.9"). 421, [1] ff. (foliation erratic).. 1559 Early edition, following the first of 1523: An important Catholic refutation of 41 of Luther's theses, including Fisher's defenses of Purgatory and free will. Fisher, Bishop of Rochester from 1504 until his death and Chancellor of the University of Cambridge from 1504 to 1514, was the tutor to Prince Henry while Henry was a student at Cambridge and may have been the ghost writer of the royal treatise against Luther entitled Assertio septem sacramentorum, published in 1521, which earned Henry (now the VIII) the title "Fidei Defensor" from a grateful pope! Following his opposition to Henry's divorce and to his leadership of the Church of England, he was beheaded in 1535. The Assertatio was first published in answer to Luther's defiance of the Pope as exemplified by his burning of the bull "Exurge Domine." Adams notes that the present example is a reissue of the sheets of the 1558 Birckmann edition. Provenance: Title-page with stamp "Biblioth. Reg. Conv. SS. XLMM" and with early inked inscription reading (roughly) "Jos.' Andrez de Stiispello"; front free endpaper with early inked inscription reading "Linea 5.a no. 299. Contemporary vellum, spine with gilt-stamped title; spine dust-soiled with gilt dimmed and with later paper shelving label now chipped, vellum worn away over original yapp edges. All edges speckled red. Lower outer corners with mild to moderate waterstaining, generally touching a few words; some sections with tracks of worming in from margins, generally not affecting text but in some instances obscuring a few letters. Foliation erratic with some numbers skipped and some duplicated; all catchwords and signatures are as expected, with text => complete. A handful of instances of early inked bracketing, underlining, and marginal annotations in Latin. A solid and very readable copy of a major anti-Luther treatise, clearly engaged with by contemporary scholar(s).

        Il Petrarca. Nuovissamente revisto, e corretto da Lodovico Dolce. 3 Teile in einem Band.

      Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari, Venedig 1559 - Klein-Oktav. Mit 3 Holzschnitt-Druckermarken, 6 halbseitigen Textholzschnitten und 1 doppelblattgroßen Holzschnittkarte. 27 nicht nummerierte Blatt, S.7 - 400 (mit diversen Fehlpaginierungen, aber so komplett), 64 nicht nummerierte Blatt. Flexibler Pergamentband der Zeit mit altem handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Kommentierte Zusammenstellung der "Canzoniere" und der "Trifoni" des Francesco Petrarca in einer illustrierten Ausgabe des 16. Jahrhunderts auf Italienisch. – BM, Italien Books S. 505; Adams P - 826; Brunet IV,551. – Zum Inhalt: Teil 1: Die "Canzoniere" - eine Bezeichnung der um 1470 erschienen Lyriksammlung, die erst im 19.Jahrhundert üblich wurde - beschreibt die Liebe des lyrischen Ichs zu einer Dame Laura. Die Geschichte, die die Begegnung, das Liebeswerben, die unerfüllte Sehnsucht des Liebenden und schließlich den Tod der Geliebten beschreibt, gliedert sich in zwei Abschnitte: der Verherrlichung der lebenden und der toten Laura. Teil 2: Die Dichtung "Trionfi" gliedert sich in sechs Teile, in denen "die charakteristischen Schicksale der Seele des Dichters und die Historie des Menschengeschlechts erzählt" werden (siehe KNLL - P 181). Auch hier spielt die Figur der Laura, von der angenommen wird, daß ihr Petrarca wahrscheinlich im April 1327 begegnete und die im April 1348 verstarb, eine Rolle: "Am Jahrestag des Beginns seiner Liebe zu Laura [.] defilieren wie in den militärischen Triumphzügen des antiken Roms sechs allegorische Figuren an dem Dichter vorbei" (KNLL a.a.O.) und zwar: die Liebe, die Keuschheit, der Tod, der Ruhm, die Zeit und die Ewigkeit. Beide Dichtungen - sowohl die "Canzoniere" als auch die "Trionfi" übten "eine einzigartige Wirkung auf die geistige Renaissance aus" (KNLL a.a.O.). In dieser Auswahl sind sie eingerahmt von kurzen Lebensabrissen Petrarcas und Lauras, den Kommentaren des italienischen Gelehrten Giulio Camillo sowie mehreren Registern (Teil 3). - Der Humanist Ludovico Dolce (1508 - 1568) war für den Drucker Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari über 35 Jahre lang als Übersetzer und Herausgeber tätig. - Brunet (a.a.O.) führt mehrere Ausgaben auf, bezeichnet die vorliegende aus dem Jahre 1559 als "une des meilleurs [éditiones]". - Dem "Buch der Lieder - Canzoniere" ist ein ganzseitiger Holzschnitt mit dem Bildnis von Petrarca und Laura, den einzelnen Teilen der "Triumphe" jeweils ein schöner allegorischer Textholzschnitt beigegeben. Die doppelseitige Holzschnittkarte zeigt den vermeintlichen Geburtsort Lauras und die Orte der Begegnung mit Petrarca. – Fleckig (besonders der obere Teil des Vorderdeckel); berieben und bestoßen; leicht gewellt. Fleckig; Titel mit alten handschriftlichen Vermerken; vereinzelt kleinere Ein- und Ausrisse; Blatt 45 – 47 (Register am Ende) fachmännisch angerändert (Blatt 45 bei Überschrift mit Textverlust).

      Excudebat Conradus Badius, Genevae 1559 - 2 vol. petit in-8 (12 x 8 cm) de 458 ff. (14) ff. d'index ; 50 ff. (6) ff. d'index., veau blond, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre en maroquin rouge, triple filet doré d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches dorées (reliure du XVIIIe siècle). Nouvelle édition posthume imprimée en caractères minuscules par Conrad Badius à Genève qui réunit deux traités de l'humaniste et historien allemand Johannes Sleidanus (1506-1556). Composé à la fin de sa vie, le de Statu religionis et reipublicae est une histoire de la Réforme de son origine en 1517 jusqu'au mois de février 1555, année de sa première publication en 25 livres ; en 1559 fut ajouté un vingt-sixième livre posthume et l'apologie de Sleidanus composée par lui-même. « Le succès de cet ouvrage fut si grand qu'on le réimprima deux fois dans la même année (1555) ; il fut aussitôt traduit en allemand, en français et en italien. Cette Histoire a toujours été fort estimée chez les Protestants ; c'est avec celle de Seckendorf les deux sources où puisent le plus souvent les écrivains de cette communion qui veulent tracer l'origine et les progrès de la réformation en Allemagne. Elle est écrite avec élégance, et contient une foule de détails curieux et de faits intéressants qu'il dit avoir tirés des actes publics conservés dans la ville de Strasbourg ; mais l'esprit de parti qui l'a dictée devrait suffire pour lui ôter toute confiance. « Personne, dit Feller, n'a su mieux que Sleidan, donner un air de vraisemblance aux mensonges les plus révoltants : on voit combien il avait en horreur Charles-Quint, dont il dénature toutes les actions ». L'Allemagne protestante l'appelle son Tite-Live ; et cette comparaison n'est pas dépourvue de justesse, au moins quant à la partialité des deux historiens pour leur nation. [Le De quatuor?] quoique moins important n'a pas eu moins de succès » (Michaud). Vignette gravée (45 x 42 mm) sur le titre répétée au titre suivant. Très bon exemplaire, de menus défauts dont un mors fendu. Brunet, V, 409 ; Graesse, VI, 420.

        1559 Cassius Dio Roman History Pompey Julius Caesar Alexander the Great Greek

      Lugduni : Apud Gulielmum Rouillium ., 1559. - 1559 Cassius Dio Roman History Pompey Julius Caesar Alexander the Great Greek Rerum Romanarum Xiphilinus / compare@$3,600 Lucius (or Claudius) Cassius Dio (c. AD 155–235), known in English as Cassius Dio, Dio Cassius, or Dio, was of Greek origin, Roman consul and noted historian who wrote in Greek. Dio published a history of Rome in 80 volumes, beginning with the legendary arrival of Aeneas in Italy; the volumes then documented the subsequent founding of Rome (753 BC), the formation of the Republic (509 BC), and the creation of the Empire (31 BC), up until AD 229. The entire period covered by Dio's work is approximately 1,400 years. Of the 80 books, written over 22 years, many survive into the modern age, intact, or as fragments, providing modern scholars with a detailed perspective on Roman history. Joannes Xiphilinus, epitomator of Dio Cassius, lived at Constantinople during the latter half of the 11th century AD. He was a monk and the nephew of Patriarch John VIII of Constantinople, a well-known preacher. The epitome of Dio was prepared by order of Michael Parapinaces (1071–1078), but is unfortunately incomplete. It comprises books 36–80, the period included being from the times of Pompey and Caesar down to Alexander Severus. Cassius Dio’s Roman History is one of the most extensive and detailed look at the history of Rome; however, it was never completed as intended. Joannes Xiphilinus was a monk that helped prepare this work for Cassius Dio. According to the index of this work, important names included are: • Adrianus • Alexander the Great • Antoninus Caracalus • Antoninus philosophus • Antoninus Pius • Augustus Caesar • Austus • Caligula • Caracallus • Claudius • Commodus • Domitianus • Didius Julianus • Galba • Heliogabalus • Julianus • Julius Caesar • Macrinus • Marc Antony • Nero • Nerua • Otho • Pertinax • Pseudantonius • Severus • Sardanapalus • Tiberius • Titus • Traianus • Vespasian • Vitellius We find other examples of this same work from the mid-1500s for sale for over $3,650!

        Vernacular Miscellany including the Lord’s Prayer; Twelve Articles of the Faith; Ten Commandments; Sermon the Mount and other Biblical Passages; excerpt from De imitatione Christi; two prayers in verse; decorated Renaissance manuscript on parchment

      DECORATED RENAISSANCE MANUSCRIPT IN FRENCH ON PARCHMENT, France (Northeastern?), dated 1559. 127 x 83 mm. 60 folios followed by one paper flyleaf, complete (collation, i10 ii-vi8 vii10), written in a diminutive, calligraphic batarde script on 25 long lines (justification, 70-72 x 45 mm.), decorative ruling in brown ink with two concentric sets of double vertical and horizontal bounding lines, red rubrics, 1-line brown paraphs, in the calendar (ff. 2-7v) rubricated running headings framed by decoration in brown ink, 1-line red initials, 2- to 3-line framed and decorated initials drawn and shaded in brown ink, head pieces and tail pieces consisting of scrolls and delicate foliage drawn and shaded in brown ink, ten 12-line frames, presumably for miniatures that were never executed. BINDING: Contemporary binding of dark brown calf blind-tooled and blind-stamped with two concentric rectangular frames and five leaves stamped at the corners of the inner frame and within it, all over pasteboard, spine with four raised bands. TEXT: The French contents of this elegant manuscript combine prayers with many of the basic tenets of Christian faith. The collection includes French translations of excerpts from the Bible and the Imitation of Christ (unidentified in published sources), as well as the Ten Commandments, Articles of Faith, and two prayers in verse by Clément Marot (1496-1544), a French humanist and spokesperson for religious reform. Along with his patroness, Marguerite de Navarre, Marot was connected to the evangelical ?"Cenacle of Meaux.?" In keeping with his Protestant leanings, Marot is well known, among other things, for his translations of the Psalms into French and his contributions of many of these translations to John Calvin?'s Genevan Psalter. The two Marot poems included here, verse prayers to be said before and after a meal, enjoyed popularity comparable to that of his Psalms and were also included in the Genevan Psalter and other collections of prayers and religious instruction that were printed for avowedly Protestant audiences, as well as for readers who did not embrace this identity openly. Dating just before the outbreak of religious wars in France and combining contents typical of medieval Books of Hours and Protestant books of prayer and instruction, this book was probably copied for a Catholic believer with sympathies for the teachings of the reformers. PROVENANCE: This manuscript was almost certainly copied in 1559, the year inscribed on the scrollwork adorning an ascender on f. 46. The inclusion of a number of saints local to modern-day Northeastern France and Belgium suggests that this book was made for use somewhere in this region. Belonged to a private continental collection. CONDITION: Some losses of leather along the corners and fore-edges and at the top and bottom of the binding?'s spine, and text lacking at the bottom of f. 60 due to losses at the bottom of the leaf, now patched. Otherwise in very good condition. Full description and photographs available (TM 716).

        I DILETTEVOLI SERMONI, ALTRIMENTI SATIRE, E LE MORALI EPISTOLE DI HORATIO, ILLUSTRE POETA LIRICO, INSIEME CON LA POETICA. RIDOTTE DA M. LODOVICO DOLCE.. CON LA VITA DI HORATIO.

      APPRESSO GABRIEL GIOLITO DE' FERRARI 1559 Legatura settecentesca in piena pergamena rigida con unghie, al dorso, titolo in oro su tassello rosso (minuscola mancanza ad un angolo); tagli blu. 318 pagine numerate (errore di numerazione tra la pagina 157 e 158), 2 pagine non numerate, di cui la prima con grande marca tipografica del Giolito con il motto Semper Eadem. Numerosi fregi e iniziali istoriate a silografia. Edizione molto rara di una importante traduzione in italiano delle opere più popolari di Orazio, composta dai due libri per i Sermoni (con 10, satire) e per le Satire ( 8 ), dall' Epistolae e dall' Ars Poetica. Dolce sembra essere stato il primo traduttore italiano dell' Epistulae con versi sciolti. Le Satire e le Epistole sono le opere più personali di Orazio e forse le più accessibili ai lettori contemporanei, poiché gran parte della sua satira sociale è di attualità. Composto in esametri, le satire esplorano i segreti della felicità umana e della perfezione letteraria. Orazio combina la filosofia greca con quella Romana con l'intenzione di convincere i suoi lettori della futilità delle loro ambizioni e desideri. In alternativa, Orazio offre una vita che è basata sugli ideali filosofici greci di autarkeia ( autosufficienza) e metriotes (moderazione). Nella celebre Ars Poetica, Orazio propone una nuova teoria della poesia: deve essere accuratamente e sapientemente elaborata a livello semantico e formale, ed essa dovrebbe essere sana quanto piacevole. Quinto Orazio Flacco fu il principale poeta lirico romano. Lodovico Dolce, umanista veneziano, fu famoso a suo tempo per un gran numero di imprese letterarie. Per 36 anni, Dolce ha lavorato per le presse di Venezia (il più delle volte per Gabriel Giolito), essendo personalmente responsabile di oltre il 25% dei libri pubblicati a Venezia in quel periodo. Esemplare in eccellente stato di conservazione , dall'interno freschissimo, ampi i margini inferiore e laterali, buono quello superiore. Libro

        FLANDRES, BELGIUM. COMITATUS FLANDRIA.

      - Very rare separately published map of Flandres, embracing the area between Dunkerque in France and Breda in the Netherlands, with Belgium in the middle. Surrounded by 26 images showing views of the cities, arms of Flandres, local cosumes, portrait of Albert VII of Habsburg (1559 – 1621) and his wife Isabella Clara Eugenia (1566 – 1633), sovereigns of the Habsburg Netherlands between 1598 and 1621. Views show the following cities: Gent, Brugge, Ostend, Sluis, Ypres, Dunkerque, Grevelingen, Ypres, Douai, Tournay, Aalst, Hulst, IJzendijke and ’t Sas. The copper engraving is based on extremely rare map by Arnold Floris and Hendrik Floris van Langren from ca 1595. Van Langrens came from a family of cartographers and globe makers, active between 1580 and 1644. The quality of their work is comparable with the maps of the family van Doetecum. Their best known maps by Arnold Floris van Langren were made for Jan Huygen van Linschoten’s Itinerario, published in 1596. Today these maps are considered as one oft he best maps in the history of cartography and are highly sought after by collectors. „Their other cartographic material is extremely rare" (Cornelis Koeman, Günter Schilder, Marco Van Egmond, Peter van der Krogt, (Commercial Cartography and Map Production in the Low Countries, 1500–ca. 1672) The History of Cartography, Volume 3, p. 1309) The Dutch engraver Claes Janszoon Visscher bought the plate from van Langrens and heavily re-ingraved the map. He added small images in margins on the sides and above the map. The views in the lower margin are printed from another plate. Because of the unpractical size of this separately published map the margins often got damaged and were removed in later states. This second state of the map (first by Visscher) is therefore very rare and usually has damaged margins. Copper engraving with original colour (professionally restored, trimmed to neatline, mounted on rice paper, tiny partly repaired tears in margins, repaired short tears in the vertical fold, small repaires hole in the left lower part oft he image, colour partly professionally restored, otherwise in a good condition), 57 x 46,5 cm References: June Schlueter, (Reading the Side Panels in the view of London from the North) Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England, 23, p. 149.

        Aristotelis categorias, et librum de interpretatione

      Vincentium Valgrisium, Venice 1559 - FIRST EDITION thus. Folio, ff. [cviii]. Roman letter, text in double numbered column, printer's device on t-p, historiated initials, woodcut diagrams. Minor waterstain to upper margin in places, a few marginal ink smudges, slight worming to some lower margins and in upper gutter a couple of old spots at end. "1564" on head of t-p. Extensive contemporary ms. ex-libris of Johannes Rolandus on verso of last. A good copy, crisp and clean, in reversed vellum, lower compartment of spine and head cap torn, worn at corners, lacking ties. First edition of Rasario's translation. Ammonius Hermiae (435?-517?), Greek philosopher, Hermias' son and fellow-pupil of Proclus, taught at Alexandria, and had among his students Asclepius, John Philoponus, Damascius and Simpliciu. Ammonius founded the school of Aristotle - interpretation in Alexandria. His method of exegesis of Aristotle and Plato and his lecturing style are all that remain of his reputedly numerous writings. The commentary on Porphyry's Isagoge may also be his, but it is somewhat corrupt and contains later interpolations. While almost all of Ammonius' Aristotle commentaries were published by students from his lectures, the large commentary on De Interpretatione was written up by Ammonius himself for publication. These commentaries are largely dependent on the lectures of Proclus and thus indebted to Proclus' style of Iamblichean Neoplatonism, which demonstrates the harmony of the ancient religious revelations and integrates them in the philosophical tradition of Pythagoras and Plato. The first part discusses Porphyry's text, the Isagoge, which is a standard introduction to Aristotle's writings on logic, much admired by Ammonius. Next are Aristotle's "In Categorias" and with "De Interpretatione," they are the first of Aristotle's treaties on logic of the Organon. It describes the ten Aristotelian categories: substance, quantity, quality, relation, place, time, attitude, having, doing and undergoing. In his commentary on De Interpretation, Ammonius adds determinist arguments to the famous 'there will be a sea-battle tomorrow' argument, where Aristotle debates whether every proposition about the future must be either true or false. Ultimately, all things which are going to happen happen necessarily and not by chance. At the end of his discussion, Ammonius brings together necessary and definite truths, but not clearly enough to resolve all questions about the latter. The translator, Giovanni Battista Rasario (1517-1578), an Italian doctor from the Novara province, taught Greek and rhetoric at Venice for twenty years. He translated several other Greek works to Latin including the Aristotle's Physic. Johannes Rolandus was probably an Austrian physician from Schweidnitz / Schlesien. In 1594 he was an itinerant doctor, remaining a short time in Mistelbach and in 1596 moving to Neustadt, with probably a practice in Vienna at the same time. His latin ex-libris warns future readers: I Johannes Bsc. (Baccalaureus Scientiae) Rolandus own this book, who doesn't enter by the front door is a thief and a bandit.

Remains of clasps. Discrete restorations to the jaws, a hitch restored at a nerve, second course with a few spots. Lacking a cover page before the title. The rigors against Protestants developed by Francis I, the historian and philologist Jean Sleidan was forced to move to Strasbourg, this is where he wrote his commentary on the state of religion and the republic under the reign of Charles Quint. The book, by his study of political Below, is a rigorous history of the Reformation from 1517 to 1556 base for any modern historiography history of Protestantism, not only German but European.

Face aux rigueurs contre les Protestants développées par François Ier, l'historien et philologue Jean Sleidan fut contraint de s'installer à Strasbourg, c'est là qu'il rédigea son Commentaire sur l'état de la religion et de la république sous le règne de Charles Quint. L'ouvrage, par son étude des dessous politiques, constitue une rigoureuse histoire de la Réforme de 1517 à 1556, base de l'historiographie moderne pour toute histoire du protestantisme, non seulement allemand mais européen. L'œuvre fut en effet plus tard éditée sous le titre d'Histoire de la Réformation.

        I dilettevoli Sermoni, altrimenti Satire, e le Morali Epistole di Horatio, Illustre Poeta Lirico, insieme con la Poetica. Ridotte da M. Lodovico Dolce dal Poema Latino in versi Sciolti Volgari. Con la Vita di Horatio. Origine della Satira. Discorso sopra le Satire. Discorso sopra le Epistole. Discorso spra la Poetica.

      Venezia, Appresso Gabriel Giolito De Ferrari, 1559. In 12esimo, front. con impresa giolitina e marca tipografica "Semper Laudem", pp. 318, fregi capolettera istoriati e finalini, testo corsivo volgare su unica colonna, legatura settecentesca in piena perg. rigida, titolo in oro su tassello rosso, tagli in pointillé rosa. Un errore di numerazione tra la pagina 157 e la 158, la 157 si ripete due volte. Rara edizione, col volgarizzamento oraziano del Dolce, di una importante traduzione in italiano delle opere più popolari di Orazio, composta da due libri, il primo con i Sermoni; il secondo con le Satire, le Epistole e la Poetica. Prima traduzione in italiano dei Sermoni (le Satire) e delle Epistole, mentre la Poetica era già stata pubblicata dal Dolce nel 1535 e 1536 (cfr. Bongi II, 69). Satire e Epistole di Orazio, che sono fra le opere più personali di Orazio e forse le più accessibili ai lettori contemporanei. Soprattutto le satire, composte in esametri, sono di grande attualità: percorrono, dal proemio al commiato, riflessioni sull'incontentabilità umana e sull'avarizia, ed esplorano i segreti della felicità umana e della perfezione letteraria. Orazio combina filosofia greca e romana, con l'intento di convincere sulla futilità delle ambizioni e dei desideri. Umani; e in alternativa offre una vita basata sugli ideali filosofici greci di autarkeia (autarchia, autosufficienza) e metriotes (moderazione). Nella celebre "Ars Poetica", Orazio propone una nuova teoria della poesia: deve essere accuratamente e sapientemente elaborata a livello semantico e formale, ed essa dovrebbe essere sana quanto piacevole. Quinto Orazio Flacco fu il principale poeta lirico romano. Lodovico Dolce (Venezia, 1508 - 1568), umanista veneziano, compì numerose e importanti imprese letterarie e editoriali, lavorando per le presse di Venezia (il più delle volte per Gabriel Giolito) ed essendo personalmente responsabile di oltre il venticinque per cento dei libri pubblicati a Venezia nell'arco del Cinquecento. (Cfr.: Brunet, III; Bongi, II, pp. 68 ? 69: ?Libro di qualche rarità?; Col., p.331: ?Très difficile a trouver?). Antica firma di appartenenza privata al frontespizio. Esemplare in eccellente stato di conservazione, in nitidaimpressione, dall'interno fresco e in ampi i margini.

Contemporary calf, worn, endleaves lacking, covers almost detached but hanging (for dear life) by cords, spine defective. Title-page soiled and chipped at outer edge, old ownership inscriptions in ink and library stamp on title as well as final page; closely cropped copy, with a few running headings shaved. Still, an acceptable copy for its rarity. The First Plantin Latin Bible A new edition of the Louvain edition (originally published 1547) of the Vulgate Latin Bible (see Darlow & Moule, note at no. 6141), printed by Plantin. Another issue of this edition (from the same typesetting) has imprint: "Antuerpi : Apud Iohannem Steelsium, 1559." It is the first Latin Bible printed by Plantin, and both issues are extremely scarce. OCLC locates only two copies in the United States of this, the scarcer and more desirable issue with the Plantin imprint; and no copies have appeared at auction for (at least) 35 years.
