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.

RAMÉE, Pierre de la.
Apud Andream Wechelum. París, 1559 - . 17 cm. [8], 74 h., 2 h. (sign A-I8, K4). Enc. en plena piel s. XIX. Pequeña restauración en la parte inferior derecha de la portada que no afecta. Marcas y pequeña fotografía sobrepuesta de anterior poseedor. Subrayados antiguos en algunas páginas. * Primera edición, rara, de una obra que rápidamente adquirió un gran éxito. Pierre de la Ramée (1515-1572) fue un humanista y retórico francés, creador de una corriente de pensamiento antiaristotélica denominada Ramismo. En un mundo en el que la palabra escrita tenía la supremacía, el ramismo surge como alternativa formal a la lógica y la retórica clásicas. Contrario al escolasticismo que reinaba en las universidades de la época, a pesar de su ideología ocupó la cátedra de matemáticas del Collège de France a mediados del siglo XVI, y lo consiguió gracias a la figura del cardenal de Lorena, a quien dedica la presente obra. Sus controvertidas teorías acabaron por costarle la vida durante la matanza de San Bartolomé, en la que se persiguió y asesinó a miles de protestantes. Voltaire dedica precisamente un fragmento de su Diccionario filosófico a este episodio y se lamenta de la actitud de las masas y de la triste suerte de Ramée. En el Liber de moribus el autor ofrece una visión filosófico-política y a la vez antropológica que reinterpreta las fuentes históricas clásicas bajo la óptica francesa y tiende a ver en los antiguos galos la raíz de la etnia propia. Inspirándose en César, Ramée realiza un halagüeño retrato de los galos, de quienes recalca especialmente su amor por la libertad, frugali … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Jhon Kyngston, April, 1559., 1559. 2 Volumes in 1. folio. pp. 12 p.l., 369; 1 p.l., 571. titles within woodcut border (McKerrow & Ferguson 67). woodcut initials. black letter. double columns. A fine lightly washed copy in antique-style blind & gilt-tooled paneled morocco, gilt edges, by Clarke & Bedford (light rubbing to lower edge of covers, a few neat repairs). Fourth and Best Edition of this famous chronicle, the second issue, with continuation bringing the history forward to May 8, 1559. While the earlier portion of the chronicle, up until the Norman Conquest, is a rather uncritical compilation based on the works of other historians, for the period covered by Fabyan?s lifetime it is a valuable authority. Beginning with the accession of Richard I, the work assumes the form of a London chronicle, with the years divided by the names of the mayors and sheriffs. Fabyan was a member of the Drapers? Company, and at one time a sheriff in London, and his chronicle contains much detail regarding public events and celebrations. His work was an important source for Shakespeare?s plays. The very rare first edition of 1516, which ends with the reign of Richard the Third, is said to have been ordered to be burned by Cardinal Wolsey because it contained critical remarks on the worldliness of the clergy. The second edition, 1533, printed by Rastell, incorporated an autobiographical note and some religious verses, as well as a continuation to 1509, which is presumed to be Fabyan?s work. A third, revised and expurgated edition, was published in 1542. To this fourth edition has bee … [Click Below for Full Description]

COLOMBO, Realdo.
Venetiis [Venice:] Ex Typographia Nicolai Beuilacquae. FIRST EDITION, later and more usual issue with the dedication to Pope Pius IV. Colombo's work is a treatise on general anatomy, but he "is best known for his discovery of the pulmonary or lesser circulation, i.e. the passage of the blood from the right cardiac ventricle to the left via the lungs. Although this discovery was first published in the Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano (1556) by Colombo's friend and former pupil Valverde de Hamusco, the evidence in both Valverde's and Colombo's accounts indicates the the discovery was Colombo's, made through his vivisectional observations of the heart and pulmonary vessels. Colombo's account of the pulmonary circuit was preceded by that in Michael Servetus's Christianismi restitutio, and by the thirteenth century account of the Arab ibn al-Nafis. However, these prior descriptions went undiscovered until the late seventeenth and early twentieth centuries, respectively; and there is no evidence that either was available to Colombo at the time. Colombo's observations of the heart also enabled him to gain a more correct understanding of the phases of the heartbeat, generally confused by his predecessors, who erroneously likened the heart's action to the expansive action of a bellows. Although overshadowed by his discovery of the pulmonary circulation, Colombo's observations of the heartbeat apparently directly inspired Harvey's vivisectional studies on the heart, which in turn led to his discovery of the greater circulation" (Norman catalogue).

Venice: Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, 1559. Second printing, the Colophon dated 1558. Giolito's fine large engraved device on the title, illustrating a phoenix rising from a brazier bearing the initials G.G.F., surmounted by a banner reading "de la mia morte eterna vita i vivo"and flanked by putti above and by two winged lions below. His alternate device of the phoenix rising from the flames to the sun, again with the initials on the brazier but with the motto "Semper Eadem" appears on the colophon, which is dated 1558. Numerous large engraved historiated initials on mythological themes, smaller engraved initials throughout the preliminaries, many large grotesque typographical ornaments. Contemporary vellum. Early ownership "Franco M.a Benincasa," partly overwritten in a later hand, which has added "Libro rarissimo." This translation of the biography of Alexander the Great by Tommaso Porcacchi is the first based on a printed Latin text, believed to be that of the Basel edition of 1545, and contains the work of the first "auctor supplementarum," Christopher Bruno. His letter to the reader discusses the errors that had been introduced into the numerous editions since the first Italian translation of the history of Alexander in 1478, as well as the rationale of his reduction of the number of books from twelve to ten. Dedicated to Federigo Gonzago, this is one of the primary sources on the life of the King of Macedonia. Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari came to Venice with his father in 1524, and was active as a printer and publisher there from 1536 to 1579, both alone and … [Click Below for Full Description]
