HORATIUS, FLACCUS QUINTUS.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

NOORT, Olivier van.
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.

CHARLES IX (1550-74)
When France's King Henry II died in 1559 and his sickly 15-year-old heir Francis II followed the next year, the throne went to 10-year-old Charles Maximilian, who became Charles IX; his mother, Catherine de' Medici, dominated his reign, which is noted for the Wars of Religion and for the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572. Partial vellum DS, 1p, 11" X 8", n.p., n.y. [September 1570 lightly pencilled in another hand]. Very good. Folds and mild bit of wear evident, but overall handsome and boldly penned. Though penned in difficult early French (which is to modern French what Elizabethan English is to modern English) and not accompanied by a translation, this is a probate approval legal document. Below six lines of finely penned legalese, Charles signs at left with his usual enormous signature in a different and somewhat lighter ink. Below this appears another sentence in a large flamboyant hand (which appears to refer to Provence) and huge ornate signature of an official. This atmospheric piece has been archivally free-floated against a cream matte with a surrounding raised cream matte, framed in a contemporary 1" walnut frame (overall dimensions 18½" X 16"). A beautiful display item. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Lugduni: Apud Haered. Seb. Gryphij, 1559. n. Hardcover. 127 x 79 mm (5 x 3 1/8"). 524 pp., [2] blank leaves. Once fine and still attractive contemporary calf, covers with elaborate entrelac design in gilt with painted elements, flat spine gilt in three compartments, the upper and lower adorned with azured floral swirls and the center panel with rows of small stemmed flowers, all edges gilt and gauffered with similar floral designs (joints expertly renewed). Wood engraved printer's device on title page and woodcut initials. Pages ruled in red. Front free endpaper with contemporary ink ownership inscription of Jesuit priest Marcus Antonius Romolus; verso of same with modern "HB" bookplate of Heribert Boeder (see item # xxxx, above). Adams S-1676; Schweiger II, 964. Perhaps half the paint rubbed off the cover, corners a bit rubbed, a handful of small abrasions to covers, one leaf with long tear into text (no loss), overall light browning of leaves, other very minor imperfections, but generally a satisfactory copy, the binding retaining much of the original pleasure of its ornate design (despite its losses), and the text fresh and clean. This fetching early entrelac binding by an unknown, probably French, hand dresses this selection of the work of the ancient Neapolitan poet Statius (ca. 45 - ca. 96 A.D.), who flourished during the Silver Age of Latin literature. As with other works published by Sebastian Gryphius of Lyons and, as here, by his heirs, this volume was issued for scholastic use yet the text is graced by an attractive italicized font and rublicated borders that … [Click Below for Full Description]

Woodcut printer's device to title page, woodcut initials. Front pastedown with library label of Chatsworth House, and with modern bookplate of "HB" (i.e., collector Heribert Boeder). Schweiger II, 595. Quarter-inch chip at top of backstrip, half a dozen tiny wormholes near head or tail of spine, minor rubbing to corners and a few abrasions on covers, but A VERY APPEALING COPY, the unsophisticated contemporaneous binding completely solid, with lustrous boards, and virtually no wear to joints, and THE TEXT ESPECIALLY FRESH AND CLEAN THROUGOUT. Well printed and tastefully bound, this is a pocket edition of a classic originally meant for students, the volume having later resided in the grand library of the dukes of Devonshire at Chatsworth House. Of Martial's corpus of epigrams, Smith says that "it is impossible not to be amazed by the singular fertility of imagination, the prodigious flow of wit, and the delicate felicity of language everywhere developed in this extraordinary collection, and from no source do we derive more copious information on the national customs and social habits of the Romans during the first centur … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Bible, Latin)
Antwerp: Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1559. First Plantin edition of the Latin Bible. [8], 424 [i.e. 432],110, [21] leaves. 1 vols. 8vo. 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. Darlow & Moule, note at no. 6141; ("the first edition of the Latin Bible printed by Christopher Plantin"); not in Adams; OCLC: 54339224 (2 copies in USA). 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.

CHARLES IX (1550-74)
When France's King Henry II died in 1559 and his sickly 15-year-old heir Francis II followed the next year, the throne went to 10-year-old Charles Maximilian, who became Charles IX; his mother, Catherine de' Medici, dominated his reign, which is noted for the Wars of Religion and for the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572. Partial vellum DS, 1p, 11" X 8", n.p., n.y. [September 1570 lightly pencilled in another hand]. Very good. Folds and mild bit of wear evident, but overall handsome and boldly penned. Though penned in difficult early French (which is to modern French what Elizabethan English is to modern English) and not accompanied by a translation, this is a probate approval legal document. Below six lines of finely penned legalese, Charles signs at left with his usual enormous signature in a different and somewhat lighter ink. Below this appears another sentence in a large flamboyant hand (which appears to refer to Provence) and huge ornate signature of an official. This atmospheric piece has been archivally free-floated against a cream matte with a surrounding raised cream matte, framed in a contemporary 1" walnut frame (overall dimensions 18½" X 16"). A beautiful display item.

GORDONIO, BERN[ARDUS] DE
Lyon: Apud Culielmum Rouillium, 1559. Hard Cover. Good. 8vo., pp. [1]-920 + [921-933]; 17th century morocco with decorative French armorial stamp to upper and lower boards; five raised bands to spine with manuscript paper spine label to one compartment; upper board held by cords only; soft plastic dj protector; contemporary ink annotaton to front pastedown; leaves with moderate offsetting and foxing throughout; text block sound; good copy. Later edition. Bernardus de Gordonio (c. 1258-c. 1320) wrote the Lilium medicinae, a compilation of medical knowledge for physicians, in 1303-05 while teaching at the University of Montpellier in France. For more than 300 years following, the book was considered an essential component of any physician's library. Bernardus is reputed to have been either French or from Scotland. He was the first to describe seizures of petit mal. Moreover, the text is supposed to contain the first reference to eye-glasses! According to one catalog entry, he relied greatly on Arabic sources, adding his own observations to those of earlier writers. A man of some renown in his own time, he is mentioned by Chaucer in the Canterbury Tales. See for instance Christie's catalog sale 9342, lot 109. Hard Cover.

GRIMALDI, Francesco Maria.
A fine copy of Grimaldi's only publication. This very important book contains the first account of the diffraction of light discovered by the author and it marks the first scientific attempt to establish a comprehensive wave theory of light. <br/><br/> ❧Macclesfield 943 (lacking the 2nd title); Arnoud de Vitry 429; Honeyman 1559. The diffraction experiments which Grimaldi describes here show "that a new mode of transmission of light had been discovered and that this mode contradicts the notion of an exclusively rectilinear passage of light. Diffraction thus gave prima facie evidence for a fluid nature of light. The name 'diffraction' comes from the loss of uniformity observed in the flow of a stream of water as it 'splits apart' around a slender obstacle placed in its path." (DSB). <br/><br/> Grimaldi repeatedly states that colors are not something different from light but are modifications of light produced by the fine structure of the bodies which reflect it, and probably consisting of an alteration in the type of motion and in the velocity of the light. The different colors are produced when the eye is stimulated by light oscillations whose velocities differ. All these views were of fundamental importance for the subsequent development of optics. <br/><br/> Newton was aware of Grimaldi's work, though only secondhand. The Englishman's great contribution to the knowledge of diffraction is his set of careful measurements which made clear the periodic nature of the phenomenon. <i>Provenance: old inscription to letter press title, previous stamp scrapped away and anoth … [Click Below for Full Description]

Zt. auf 4 Bünden über Holzdeckeln mit reicher teils figürlicher Blindprägung.. VD16 N 231. - Zweite deutsche Ausgabe der Predigtsammlung des Bischofs von Wien, welche zuerst 1535 in Mainz erschien. - Fr. Nausea (um 1496-1552) studierte in Leipzig, Padua und Siena Rechtswissenschaften und Theologie. War 1524 Teilnehmer des Nürnberger Reichstags und des Regensburger Konvents. In Bretten versuchte er, Philipp Melanchthon zur Rückkehr in die katholische Kirche zu bewegen. 1525 Diakon und seit 1535 Domprediger in Mainz, war Nausea seit 1534 auch Hofprediger Ferdinands I. und ab 1538 Koadjutor von Johann Fabri, zu dessen Nachfolger als Bischof von Wien er 1541 geweiht wurde. - "Da sich seine Predigten vielfach auf die schwebenden Zeitfragen bezogen und da die meisten derselben auch im Druck erschienen, lenkte er die Aufmerksamkeit immer weiterer Kreise auf sich, zuletzt - durch seine Homiliensammlung - jene des römischen Königs Ferdinand, der ihn zu seinem Rath und Hofprediger ersah und ihm in der Folge zur Entlohnung seiner Dienste die Pfarren Asparn (an der Zaya) und Mistelbach verlieh. Bevor N. dieses neue Amt antrat, begab er sich (1533) nach Rom, wo ihn der Papst von dem nach canonischem Rechte für eine solche Stelle nöthigen Doctorgrade der Theologie dispensirte, den er sich gleichwol (1534) zu Siena erwarb.

(Reliure du XIXe, Thibaron-Joly.). ____ Titre dans un bel encadrement d'arabesques gravé et 96 gravures sur bois de Bernard Salomon, « un pur chef-d'œuvre de l'école lyonnaise ». Un bois est répété (aux ff. A5r et E6r). Chaque bois est accompagné d'un sixain de Charles Fontaine (ou Fonteine). A la fin, dans un « Avertissement au lecteur », Fontaine s'excuse d'avoir utilisé des « rimes non assez riches », mais qu'il a voulu éviter ainsi de rendre ses « petits vers rudes & obscurs ». Cet avertissement est signé : « Hante le françois », anagramme de son nom. D'après Cartier, il s'agit de la réimpression page pour page de l'édition de 1556. Pour ce bibliographe, la seule différence est la présence d'un bois répété (aux feuillets F7r et G2v), mais dans notre exemplaire ces bois sont différents comme dans le premier tirage.

In der Vorrede zum zweiten Teil berichtet der Verleger Egenolff, dass Ryff "diesen Theyl ... nach seinem Absterben hinderlassen / und nachdem des von vilen / dieser kunst erfarnen / wirdig geacht worden / zu publicieren und in Truck zuuordnen ... haben wir dich dises nützlichen Buchs / dieweil es uns zuhanden kommen / nicht wöllen berauben ... (Vorwort zum zweiten Teil). Gurlt, in "Geschichte der Chirurgie S. 42 ff" geht davon aus, dass Ryffs "grosze Chirurgei" eine eigentliche Bearbeitung von Gerssdorfs "Feldtbuch der Wundartzney" ist, die Ryff mit Übersetzungen aus anderen Werken seiner Zeit, wie von Tagault anreicherte. Gurlt nennt das Werk planlos und unvollständig, weist aber darauf hin, dass Ryff durch seinen Tode das Buch nicht vollenden konnte. "Nichts destoweniger ist die grosse Chirurgie als zu den ältesten deutschen Schriften der Chirurgie gehörig, von Wert" (Gurlt). Der eindrückliche Titelholzschnitt in Rot und Schwarz gedruckt mit der Darstellung einer Unterschenkel-Amputation in Gegenwart eines Geistlichen.
