      Frankfurt, Egenolffs Erben, 1559. - 4°, circa 20,3 x 17,3 cm. 16, 86 num. Bll., mit Titelholzschnitt und vielen Textholzschnitten Moderner grüner Lederband VD 16 ZV 26109. Eine von zwei textidentischen Fassungen aus dem selben Jahr (die andere mit einem Tetrastichon auf der Titelrückseite, die hier leer blieb). Der aus Sterzing stammende Goltwurm (1524-1559; auch latinisiert Athesinus) studierte ab 1539 an derUniversität WittenbergbeiMartin LutherundPhilipp Melanchthon. Im Anschluss begab er sich nachMarburg, wo er 1541 eine Hofpredigerstelle annahm und 1546 Hofprediger beiPhilipp III. Nassauwurde. Er führte alsSuperintendentdie Visitationen der Kirchen und Schulen der Grafschaft durch und entwarf für die Grafschaft die erste Kirchenordnung. Damit gilt er als Begründer der evangelischen nassauisch-Weilburgischen Landeskirche. Goltwurm war ab 1551 auch Berater von GrafWilhelm von Nassau-Dillenburg, dem Vater vonWilhelm von Oranienbei der Umsetzung der Reformation in der Grafschaft Nassau-Dillenburg. Literarisch sind von Goltwurm einige Schriften erhalten, die eine deutliche Distanzierung von der allegorischen Schriftenauslegung der katholischen Theologie zeigen. Aus seiner Überzeugung, dass das Weltende kurz bevorstünde, deutet er in seinem ?Wunderwerk und Wunderzeichen Buch? unerklärliche Vorkommnisse als göttliches Wirken und stellt Wundergeschichten zusammen, die er aus historischen und zeitgenössischen Quellen bezieht. Sein hier vorliegender Kirchenkalender erschien in seinem Todesjahr und wurde bis zum Ende des Jahrhunderts noch neunmal aufgelegt. Die teilweise schon etwas ausgedruckten Holzstöcke stammen vermutlich aus der Cranach-Werkstatt. "- Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, teils auch stärker und etwas fleckig, insgesamt jedoch gut erhalten.

      Georg Melantrich, Prague 1559 - Illustrated with an opening woodcut initial, and a floral border printed around the prayer for the consecration. [48] pages. Slim 12mo, bound in old decorative red paper wrappers. Prague: Georg Melantrich, 1559. An extremely rare, apparently unique copy of this little book of prayers of thanksgiving to be said during the mass, according to the example of the Greek church. We can find no dates for Christoph Freisleben or Phreyslebius, Doctor of both civil and canon law, only that he flourished circa 1544. He wrote two works on the Institutiones of Justinian, but we can trace no other copy of the present title. other considerations aside, this is a nice example of sixteenth- century Prague printing. -Not in Adams, Tobolka, NUC, BN or BL.

        Rerum geographicarum libri XVII.Paris, typis Regiis [Fédéric Morel], 1620. 2 parts in 1 volume. Folio. With title-page printed in red and black with the engraved coat of arms of Louis XIII, and several woodcut initials, head- and tailpieces. Contemporary gold-tooled parchment, gilt edges.

      Brunet V, col. 554; Dibdin II, p. 433; Graesse VII, p. 604. Enlarged and corrected second edition of Strabo's Geographika including the notes by the French scholar Isaac Casaubon (1559-1614): one of the earliest and most important scientific treatises on historical geography. It contains the Greek text together with the Latin translation by Wilhelm Xylander (1532-1576) and is followed by Casaubon's notes. "Casaubon was but 28 years of age when he published his first celebrated edition of Strabo [in 1587]... The [present] second edition, published by Frederick Morel at Paris, is much more accurate and splendid than the first" (Dibdin). Together with the works of Ptolemy and Solinus, Strabo's Geographika constitutes the first attempt at a unified treatise of geographical knowledge. It was first printed in 1516 by the Aldine press at Venice. Strabo visited Egypt and sailed up the Nile in 25 BC. Books 15 and 16 are devoted entirely to the Orient in general and Arabia in particular, while the final book discusses Egypt and Libya.With two bookplates on paste-down. Title-page browned, with the lower outer corner torn off, a single minute wormhole in the gutter margin through the first half of the book, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed and front hinge partly split, but otherwise good. An essential source for Europe's earliest relations with the Middle East.

      Sabin 55444; STCN (5 copies); Tiele 809, p. 182; Tiele, Memoire, pp. 35-36. Rare edition of the famous account of the circumnavigation by Olivier van Noort (1559-1627) in the years 1598 to 1601. Van Noort was the fourth to circumnavigate the globe and the first Dutchman to do so. His predecessors were Magellan, Drake and Cavendish. He left Holland in 1598 with four ships and orders to attack the Spanish and Portuguese and harass them in any way possible. After many adventures Van Noort returned in 1601 with only one ship and only a few dozen of his crew. Those few had survived numerous skirmishes with the Portuguese and Spanish, and attacks by natives at Puerto Deseada and Tierra del Fuego, the former described here as "zeer groot van gestalte" (very large in stature) leading to tales of giants. They suffered from scurvy and survived on penguin meat and ostrich eggs. Van Noort's story was extremely popular and as the first Dutchman to sail round the world he was revered out of national pride, even though his voyage accomplished little.With a 19th-century owner's name on an endleaf and an occasional word underlined. In very good condition. Cloth of backstrip gone and cloth frayed at the corners. Rare edition of an account of one of the earliest voyages around the world.

        La femmina di un satiro

      1559 - Acquaforte, circa 1559, priva di firma. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l’indirizzo di Camocio. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, con margini, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera appartiene alla serie dei Paesaggi con soggetti mitologici relativa al breve periodo veneziano del Duperac, con le influenze derivanti dalla pittura di Tiziano. Robert-Dusmenil elenca solo la prova con l’indirizzo "Apud Camocium" inserito nella pietra in basso al centro. Rarissima. Etching, circa 1559, without signature. Example of the first state of two, before the address of Camocio. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with unidentified watermark, with margins, small spots, generally in very good conditions. The work belongs to the series of landscapes with mythological subjects relating to the short period of Venetian Duperac, with influences stemming from painting by Titian. Robert-Dusmenil lists only the test with the address "Apud Camocium" inserted in the stone at the bottom center. Etienne Duperac is an architect , painter , engraver and surveyor. Towards 1559 he came to Rome, where he stayed for more than twenty years, working with compatriot Lafrery . During this period, however, reported several times in France: the Felibien reminds the author of five paintings of sea gods and of the loves of Jupiter and Callisto, were destroyed in 1967, which decorated a bathroom in the palace of Fontainebleau. Along his journey to Rome, staying briefly in Venice, a presence that is attested by some engravings for the publisher Giovanni Francesco Camocio. The work in question is related to the Venetian period, and is clearly influenced by the Venetian painting of the period , especially the works of Domenico Campagnola. However, there are also elements that lead to the landscapes engraved by Leon Davent and also by Battista del Moro and Angelo Falconetto . An extremely rare work. Robert-Dusmenil, VIII, 62.

        1559 Plutarch Moralia (Morals) in Italian, in two volumes, leather & gilt

      Gironimo Giglio, Venice 1559 - A 1559 printing of Plutarch’s Moralia in Italian, printed in Venice, in two volumes. Likely rebound in the 17th century in France based on the spine decoration. Bound in pretty speckled leather binding with great spine decoration, it will look excellent on your library shelf. This book has some provenance, inside each front board the Italian architect Luigi Carlo Daneri signed his name. A famous 20th century architect, there is even an architectural style named after him, Daneriana Architecture. About the Work - Plutarch was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist, known primarily for his Parallel Lives and Moralia. He is classified as a Middle Platonist. Moralia is an eclectic collection of seventy-eight essays and transcribed speeches, including On Fraternal Affection—a discourse on honour and affection of siblings toward each other, On the Fortune or the Virtue of Alexander the Great—an important adjunct to his Life of the great king, On the Worship of Isis and Osiris (a crucial source of information on Egyptian religious rites), along with more philosophical treatises, such as On the Decline of the Oracles, On the Delays of the Divine Vengeance, On Peace of Mind and lighter fare, such as Odysseus and Gryllus, a humorous dialogue between Homer's Odysseus and one of Circe's enchanted pigs. The Moralia was composed first, while writing the Lives occupied much of the last two decades of Plutarch's own life. Condition of the Books - Volume 1 – 15 x 10 x 2 cm Volume 2 – 15 x 10 x 3.5 cm Volume 1 - Pages – (1) 163 in single leaf numbering (326 modern), 4, (2) Volume 2 - Pages – (1) 289 in single leaf numbering (578 modern), 3, (1) A rare use of a place ribbon in a 16th century work. See pictures. Speckled leather bindings with some wear, corners bumped. Likely over pasteboard. Someone has wrote a small index # at the top left of each front board. Light cracking at the joint. Spines are pretty with 7 compartments with floral stamps and the title and volume # in separate compartments. All edges of the text-block are sprinkled. Pastedown and end-pages have foxing where they touch the leather. The leather is soft, I find it likely that is was oiled as was the custom in libraries for many years. Name and other notes on flyleaf and pastedowns. Occasional light damp staining throughout the book, not bad. Some pages are repaired within the margin at the bottom of the age in the old way of pasting on similar paper. The first 6 pages of volume one feel as though the binding didn’t quite capture them as well as the rest of the text block, although they are holding in. 1814 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Tripoli citta di Barbaria

      Roma 1559 - Rarissima veduta della città di Tripoli durante l'immaginario attacco spagnolo di riconquista organizzato nel 1559. Il fronte cristiano non si rassegnava alla perdita di Tripoli che nel 1551 era stata riconquistata dagli ottomani, così nel 1559, re Filippo II di Spagna organizzò una grande spedizione navale, ma la campagna si concluse con un disastro: la flotta cristiana fu intercettata e sorpresa vicino l'isola di Djerba dalle forze dell'ammiraglio Piyale Pasa, nel maggio 1560, e circa metà delle navi vennero affondate o catturate. Questo evento segnò l'apice della dominazione ottomana nelle acque mediterranee. Questa veduta fu sicuramente realizzata prima del 1560: il primo stato della lastra, infatti, reca nel margine inferiore una notazione storica nella quale si dice che la città di Tripoli "è stata redificata & fortificata da Dragot Rays famoso corsaro che vi stade residentia" con riferimento al forte detto di S. Pietro che fu costruito appunto da Darghut Pascià nel 1559. Questo dettaglio prova anche che la carta è basata su informazioni molto recenti. Il testo prosegue: "Novamente il Duca di Mendina Celi Vicere di Sicilia con l’armata del Re Philippo et con aiuto della Sede Apostolica, del Duca de Fiorenza, et del gran Mastro della Religion di Rhodi à persuasion della quale si fa questa impresa è andato per la recuperation di essa con circa 60. Galere et altre tante Navi, per haver alcuni Signori harabi & mori in aiuto, & per securezza hanno dato loro figliuoli per ostaggi, Sperando con l’aiuto di DIO di reportarne Vittoria" dunque l'impresa non si era ancora conclusa, con la rovinosa sconfitta degli spagnoli. Il primo stato della lastra viene pubblicato privo di dati editoriali, ma viene da noi attribuito alla tipografia di Antonio Lafrery, perché nell'Indice del 1571 è presente una "Tripoli citta di Barbaria". Il secondo stato, privo del testo nel margine inferiore, mostra aggiunto il titolo il titolo TRIPOLI CITTA DI BARBARIA. Il terzo stato reca l’imprint Claudij Duchetti formis; a cui, nel quarto, è aggiunto l’imprint Giovanni Orlandi formis romae 1602. Nello stato finale, rappresentato dal questo esemplare, il nome di Orlandi sostituito da Henricus van Schoel formis romae 1602.

V.2).Von 1559 bis 1574 erschien in Basel die "Ecclesiastica historia", eine von Matthias Flacius angeregte und geleitete Gemeinschaftsarbeit mehrerer lutherischer Theologen, den sog. "Magdeburger Centurien". Dieses einzige, größere, auf Quellenforschungen beruhende kirchengeschichtliche Werk des Protestantismus der Reformationszeit behandelt - nach Jahrhunderten (Centurien) eingeteilt - die Kirchengeschichte bis zum Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts. Die Bearbeiter der "Magdeburger Centurien" suchen zu beweisen, daß die Papstkirche im Lauf der Jahrhunderte immer mehr von der ursprünglichen Reinheit und Einfalt der apostolischen Kirche abgefallen sei und die Reformationskirche, die sich auf viele "testes veritatis" der früheren Jahrhunderte berufen könne, keine Neuerung sei (Vgl. dazu Bautz II, 43-48). Zur Widerlegung der protestantischen Magdeburger Centuriatoren veröffentlichte La Bigne in seiner "Bibliotheca veterum patrum" über 200 Werke der Kirchenväter in systematischer Ordnung, um den Nachweis zu erbringen, daß die katholische Kirche nie von der Lehre und der Verfassung der Alten Kirche abgewichen sei. Ein Unternehmen, an das sich bisher noch keiner gewagt hatte. Die Bibliotheca erschien erstmals von 1575-79 in 9 Bänden, wurde wiederholt nachgedruckt und vermehrt, und erreichte in der Ausgabe von Lyon (1677) bereits 27 Bände. Vorliegende Ausgabe umfasste 15 (in 19) Bände (die alle im gleichen Jahr gedruckt wurden) und wurde 1622 um einen Indexband erweitert. Die beiden Teile enthalten Werke u.a. von Filastrius v. Brescia, Didymus dem Blinden, Apollinaris von Laodicea, Philon v. Karpasia, Chrysologus Petrus u. Sixtus III. Die Bände stammen aus dem aufgelassenen Grazer Karmeliterkloster St. Joseph. LA BIGNE (auch Binius od. Bignaeus) Marguerin de (1546 od. 47 - 1589 od. 90) Theologe u. Patrologe. L.B. entstammte einer alten normannischen Adelsfamilie. Nach dem Erwerb des Lizentiats der Theologie an der Universität Caen bekleidete er dort das Amt des Rektors. Auf der Sorbonne setzte er seine Studien fort und wurde zum Doktor der Theologie promoviert. Die Herausgabe der "Bibliotheca veterum patrum" brachte ihm eine Domherrenstelle in Bayeux ein. Sein persönliches kirchenpolitisches Engagement für die Rechte seines Stiftes führte zum Konflikt mit seinem Bischof und zu L.B.s Resignation in Bayeux. Kurz darauf verstarb er in Paris.

        Scholia, idest, brevis sed erudita atque utilis interpretatio in IIII. libros Aristotelis De Partibus Animalium. Dominico Monthesauro Veronensi interprete. Nunc primmùm in lucem edita.

      Peter Perna 1559 - FIRST EDITION, woodcut vignette to title-page, woodcut initials, Roman and italic letter, pp. 325, [15, including final blank], 8vo, contemporary limp vellum, title inked (twice) to spine, minor staining, tiny hole in spine, inscription to title-page of the convent of Santa Maria Inviolata, Riva del Garda, good. First edition of a commentary by the important 12th-century Byzantine scholar Michael of Ephesus, on Aristotle's work 'On the parts of animals'. Michael was one of the principal Aristotelian scholars in a group organized in Constantinople by the Empress Anna Comnena. They represented an eastern Christian tradition of philosophical study that continued after the fall of Alexandria, its centre, to Arab conquerors in 642. Michael finished his commentaries in or after 1138. The present work was translated into Latin for by Domenico Montesauro, a physician of Verona. Michael's work is followed (201-325) by a version in Latin of book I of the original Aristotle, with facing commentary (presented here in italic), by the Padua philosophy professor Niccolo Leonico Tomeo (1456-1531). Tomeo's work had first been published in an edition of Venice, 1540, with a second edition of Paris, 1542. The printer reports (pp.4-5) that he was encouraged to add this part to his book by the great Swiss naturalist Conrad Gessner (1516-1565).

        DE RE ANATOMICA LIBRI XV.

      VENEZIA, BEVILACQUA, 1559. In-folio; 4 cc. (compreso frontespizio inciso in legno), 270 pp., 1 c.; legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida, titolo manoscritto al dorso, ex libris alla carta di sguardia anteriore (Sheffield General Infirmary library). Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione, seconda tiratura (con la dedica a Pio VI) di uno dei caposaldi della storia della medicina, che contiene la scoperta della circolazione polmonare. Colombo, nei suoi studi, avanza nella corretta definizione della circolazione del sangue e, precedendo le intuizioni di Serveto, Valverde, Cesalpino e Fabrizzi, si pone come indispensabile supporto alla scoperta di Harvey del 1628. Le opere del Serveto e Valverde precedono di qualche anno il "De re anatomica", ma si rifanno agli studi del Colombo che erano anteriori. Il celeberrimo grande legno con la "lezione di anatomia" che compone la pagina del titolo, pragonabile per bellezza al frontespizio del Vesalio, al quale chiaramente si ispira, nel tempo fu attribuito ad artisti quali Tiziano, amico di Colombo, Veronese, Salviati. First edition, second issue (with dedication to Pius IV). A milestone in the history of medicine, this work contains the first description of the pulmonary circuit, such as the passage of blood from the right cardiac ventricle to the left through the lungs. "Colombo realized that his discovery had eliminated the need for the Galenic septal pores, but it was also clear to him that the pulmonary circuit is an important phenomenon in its own right. He particularly emphasized that it is in the lungs, rather than in the heart, that the venous blood is mixed with air and converted to arterial blood. The arterial blood was thought to preserve the life of all parts of the body, and the unique ability to generate this important substance had been one of the traditional attributes of the heart. By transferring this power to the lungs Colombo was quite consciously diminishing the status of the heart, whose main task was now to distribute the arterial blood rather than to generate it" (DSB). The magnificent title-page was credited to several important artists (Tiziano, Porta, Salviati). Furthermore, "it is known that he had planned an illustrated text. In a letter to Duke Cosimo de'Medici of 17 April 1548... he mentioned the assistance he was receiving from the "leading painter in the world" as well as how, on a previous stay in Rome, he dissected cadavers and supervised artists. This "leading painter" has usually been identified as Michelangelo, whose friendship with Colombus is documented in the 1553 biography of the artist by Ascanio Condivi" (Wellcome). "Il fatto essenziale della circolazione, cioè la non esistenza del supposto passaggio fra il cuore destro ed il cuore sinistro, con tutto il sistema della piccola circolazione fu adunque perfettamente conosciuto e descritto da Realdo Colombo, al quale spetta il merito altresì di aver affermato con assoluta sicurezza che l'arteria venosa porta sangue e non aria come si era supposto e che nulla esiste di quelle supposte fuliggini che secondo gli antichi anatomisti si formavano nel cuore e che attraverso di esso venivano trasportate. E parlando, nel libro VI, con classica limpidità e chiarezza, dei quattro grossi vasi del cuore, nota come siano costituiti in modo da portare sangue al cuore, ciò che avviene durante la diastole, ed altri due per portare il sangue dal cuore e ciò durante la sistole". Castiglioni, Storia della medicina, p. 381. "This historic breakthrough in his demostration of the lesser circuit through the lungs secures his place of importance in the line culminating in Harvey's demonstration of the circulation of the blood 69 years later". Heirs of Hippocrates, 304. Durling 992. Wellcome 1546. Garrison-Morton 378.1. Norman I, 501. Mortimer (it.) 19.

Slim 12mo, bound in old decorative red paper wrappers. Prague: Georg Melantrich, 1559. An extremely rare, apparently unique copy of this little book of prayers of thanksgiving to be said during the mass, according to the example of the Greek church. We can find no dates for Christoph Freisleben or Phreyslebius, Doctor of both civil and canon law, only that he flourished circa 1544. He wrote two works on the Institutiones of Justinian, but we can trace no other copy of the present title. other considerations aside, this is a nice example of sixteenth- century Prague printing. -Not in Adams, Tobolka, NUC, BN or BL.

        Donati antonii abaltomari Medici, ac Philosophi Neapolitani De medendis humano corpore malis : Ars medica

      Apud Ioannem Frellonum 1559 - - Apud Ioannem Frellonum, Lugduni [Lyon] 1559, in-8 (11x17,5cm), 463pp. ; 436pp. (3), 2 parties reliées en un volume. - Première édition française rédigée en latin, après l'originale italienne, parue à Naples, en 1553 et celle de 1558 publiée à Venise. Reliure en plein veau d'époque. Dos lisse richement orné d'un semis de trois points et de larges roulettes. Plats décorés de trois croissants de lune entrelacés. Double encadrement avec fleurons en écoinçons. Tranches dorées ciselées. Reliure très habilement restaurée. Restauration ancienne en marge basse de la page de titre qui a également été doublée, une mouillure marginale sans atteinte au texte sur un tiers du milieu du volume. Une restauration à l'aide d'une bande de papier en marge basse de la dernière page. Annotations manuscrites sur la page de titre et ex-libris sur le contreplat. Notre exemplaire est établi dans une élégante reliure de l'époque en plein veau aux tranches dorées et ciselées et frappée au centre des plats de trois croissants entrelacés qui furent notamment le symbole de Diane de Poitiers (1499-1566), maîtresse du roi Henri II. On retrouve ce chiffre sur de nombreux biens lui ayant appartenu, les deux croissants opposés étant interprétés comme une stylisation de la lettre H, et le croissant renversé un symbole de Diane chasseresse ; l'ensemble était appelé « chiffre de Diane «. La bibliothèque de cette femme érudite et influente fut l'une des plus prestigieuses de la Renaissance. Composée d'ouvrages richement établis par les plus grands relieurs de son temps, sa collection réunie au château d'Anet comportait également de nombreux ouvrages médicaux plus modestement reliés, comme en attestent les rares inventaires dressés à l'époque. Cet intérêt pour la médecine fut peut-être la cause de sa mort probablement due à un empoisonnement par une potion « médicinale » à base d'or censée la faire rajeunir. Cependant, cette reliure ne saurait être attribuée à cette bibliothèque et ce symbole paraît être avant tout une référence à Henri II dont ce triple croissant accompagne la devise : Donec totum impleat orbem, « jusqu'à ce qu'il [le croissant de lune] remplisse l'orbe tout entière ». Frappé sur les plats d'un ouvrage publié l'année de la mort d'Henri II, ce fer, s'il ne marque pas l'appartenance de l'exemplaire, témoigne à tout le moins d'un hommage posthume au Roi de France tout juste disparu. Cet entrelacement de croissants de lune, allégorie antique de la Connaissance et figure héraldique récurrente, est sans doute également à interpréter en lien avec la nature scientifique de l'ouvrage dont le titre, volontairement absent sur le dos de la reliure, est peut-être symboliquement remplacé par cette trinité lunaire. Antonio Donato Altomare (1520-1566) fut un brillant médecin napolitain de la Renaissance, grand admirateur de Gallien et Hippocrate, qui consacra la majeure partie de sa vie à l'étude de la médecine. éminent professeur, ses cours étaient basés sur l'anatomie. Persécuté par les théologiens qui doutaient de son orthodoxie, il dut émigrer à Rome où il obtint la protection de Paul IV. C'est à ce dernier qu'est dédié son De medendis humano corpore malis ; dans la dédicace il relate les rares détails biographiques que nous connaissions aujourd'hui. Altomare offre à ses lecteurs un vaste panorama de l'histoire des maladies d'après l'ancien usage. Le traité est particulièrement intéressant car il présente les plus anciennes descriptions de divers syndromes psychologiques, notamment la manie, la mélancolie et la cataplexie, ainsi que les maladies du cœur. Les ouvrages séparés d'Altomare - les œuvres complètes ne seront publiées qu'à partir de 1561 - sont rares et recherchés. Bel et rare exemplaire établi dans une superbe reliure de la Renaissance au « chiffre de Diane ».

        Lunghissima lettera autografa, non firmata. Né datata (ma 1559)

      1559. 8 pp. e 1/2, in-4 gr., al Cardinale Carlo Carafa (1516-1561) per patrocinare l'elezione a Papa del Cardinale Ercole Gonzaga, suo zio materno, contro il Card. Farnese suo cognato. Il Duca si rammarica col Carafa, influente personaggio del Sacro Collegio, di essersi ritirato dal Conclave per favorire il Card. Farnese l, lo esorta caldamente a ritornarvi per sostenere la cannditatura del card. Gonzaga perché è l'uomo più meritevole di «arrivare al supremo grado di vicario di N.S. in terra..(per) la pietà verso Dio, l'osservanza verso la religione, la giustizia verso li uomini, la bontà e benignità in ogni sua attione, l'esperienza nelle cose di stato, la sincerità nel mantenere inviolabilmente la fede, et il conservare in tutte le cose il grado di Cardinale, di Cavaliere e di huomo da bene. Nella religione e bontà io non vedo che sia inferiore ad alcuno..». In cambio dell'appoggio gli promette una quantità di benefici e privilegi e sicura difesa contro le inevitabili ritorsioni del Farnese. «Prego in conclusione V.S. Ill.ma che in quest'occasione tanto signalata non lassi di fare un tanto benefitio alla Casa di Gonzaga et alla mia et anco al Signor Marchese di Pescara, obbligandosi tanti cavallieri e stati per la casa sua in perpetuo e pregando Dio che l'ispiri a non perdere così bella occasione in servitio, di Dio, della chiesa, del Re e di casa sua. Resto baciandole le mani». Com'è noto, i Cardinali riuniti in Conclave battagliarono per quattro mesi prima di eleggere finalmente il 25 dicembre 1559, in seguito al ritiro, appunto, del Card. Carafa, Gian Angelo Medici, candidato sostenuto dal Duca Cosimo, che prese il nome di Pio IV (cfr. Encicliopedia Cattolica, IX, 1496-7). Documento di straordinaria importanza per la storia del Papato e di alcune tra le più potenti ed influenti Famiglie dell'epoca. In buono stato di conservazione e di discreta leggibilità. (Alleghiamo alla lettera, un fedele trascrizione del testo). Alla lettera originale è allegata anche la minuta autografa della stessa, pp. 10 e 1/2, in-4. Testo pressocché identico, in qualche parte più prolisso, vergato in fretta dalla stessa mano, con numerosi pentimenti e cancellazioni, di lettura più difficoltosa. Documento di grande valore (con fori e mende nella parte inferiore dei fogli, ma in discreto stato di conservazione). Guidobaldo della Rovere (1513-1574), figlio di Francesco Maria I, al quale succedette nel 1538, e di Eleonora Gonzaga; in seconde nozze sposò Vittoria Farnese.
