COLOMBO, Realdo.
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).The fifteen Books are on the bones, ligaments, muscles, liver, heart, brain and … [Click Below for Full Description]

POPE PAUL IV, ET AL.; ST PETER'S BASILICA [BOUND WITH HORATIUS LUTIUS (fl. 1541-1569)]
POPE PAUL IV, ET AL.; ST PETER'S BASILICA [BOUND WITH HORATIUS LUTIUS (fl. 1541-1569)]. Privilegia auctoritates, facultates, indulgentiaeque Fabricae Basilicae Principis Apostolorum Sancti Petri de Urbe... [BOUND WITH FIVE PAPAL BULLS & Tractatus, De privilegiis scholarium]. Rome: 1559. A Sammelband of seven works - six of which concern the financing and construction of St. Peter's Basilica. The first title, 'Privilegia auctoritates', is a collection of papal documents dating from 1512 to 1555, concerning the privileges, powers, and indulgences granted to the "Fabbrica" of St. Peter's, the committees charged with administering the finances for, and overseeing the construction of New Saint Peter's. Michelangelo, who was appointed chief architect of the project in 1546, would have still been active as head of the project at the time of this publication. The work was published in 1559 by Antonio Blado and printed by Vaccaro Sofia in Rome. The other five works concerning St. Peter's are short Bulls and quite rare. They are: 1) Bulla...Revisionis et recuperationis [Rome: Antonio Blado, 1570]; 2) Bulla...Quod duae sententiae... [Rome: Blado, 1570]; 3) Bulla...Applicationis fabricae... [Rome: Blado, 1570]; 4) Bulla...Ampliationis, facultatum, super revisione... [Rome: Blado, 1571]; 5) Bulla...Assignationis, & applicationis Fabricae...[Rome: Blado, 1571]. The seventh work included is not related to the other six, but is very interesting in its own right. The work, 'Tractatus de privilegiis scholarium', written by one Horatius Lutius, concerns the legal privileges of students and sc … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Aristotle.) Michael of Ephesus
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).

Francesco & Michele TRAMEZZINO
Acquaforte e bulino, 1559, firmata e datata in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "tre tulipani in un cerchio con stella" (Woodward 121 databile al 1558), con ampli margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Magnifica e rarissima carta geografica dell'isola di Creta, caratterizzata dalla curiosa ed inusuale rappresentazione del mare, inciso da marcate linee realizzate al bulino. Il risultato è quello di una mare vivo, probabilmente nel tentativo di rappresentarlo come agitato. La carta è la prima rappresentazione in rame dell'isola e segue il modello silografico di Matteo Pagano, realizzato a Venezia nel 1538. L'opera è datata 1559 ed è intagliata da Sebastiano dal Re. Il Tooley cita un esemplare della collezione Beans con la data 1554, ma ci sentiamo di asserire che si tratti di un refuso. Probabile invece che della mappa esista un esemplare del 1558, data l'evidente correzione della data nella lastra. Sebastiano di Re, alle volte latinizzato con il nome di Sebastianus a Regiubus, era originario di Chioggia come lui setto amava firmarsi con l'aggettivo Clodiensis. La sua attività calcografica si svolge principalmente a Roma tra il 1557 ed il 1563. La sua prima opera cartografica è una mappa di Roma, copia dell'incisione di Beatricetto edita dal Lafrery. Il suo nome è associato dal 1558 all'editore e mercante veneziano, ma attivo nella capitale, Michele Tramezzino, e di Pirro Ligorio. Successivamente lavora anche per il figlio del Salamanca e per Bartolomeo Faleti. Nel 1560 diviene membro della Congregazione dei Virtuosi al Pan … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

ARISTOTLE
1559. "It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ― Aristotle The "Nicomachean Ethics" is considered the most important historical philosophical work - it is known to have had important impacts on the Middle Ages as a founding piece in medieval philosophy. In this work, Aristotle's best-known work on ethics, Aristotle seeks to separate the difference between practical and theoretical living; encouraging readers to embrace living the best possible lives rather than just discussing what that looks like. This work stirred controversy for centuries, however. Even during the times of Bacon and Hobbes, philosophers would argue that Aristotle's views on ethical living were interfering with their own philosophies. Aristotle makes many valid arguments in "Ethics," but few resound more than these: · Be of virtue, deserving the highest of praise · Have the justice and fairness of a good ruler · Show practical judgment · Be a truly good friend Aristotle was the first philosopher to write a treatise on ethics. Because there were no preexisting expectations on what 'ethical living' meant, he decided to 'start with what would be roughly agreed to be true by people of good up-bringing and experienced in life.'

UND DSK 1559-1560 Riva de Trento FIRST EDITION LANGUAGE: HEBREW VG CONDITION, CLOTH COVERS, FINE COPY, ATTRACTIVE RECENT BINDING, TITLE EXPERTLY REPAIRED, NOT EFFECTING TEXT Aristotle's work abridged by Averroes and translated to Hebrew. Averroes (Abu al-Walid Muhammad ibn Rushd; 1126-1198), one of the greatest Islamic philosophers and a noted physician. Averroes, who lived in Spain, is primarily known as commentator on Aristotle's works. While Averroes had little influence on Islamic thought, Latin and Hebrew translations of his works made him a central figure in Christian and Jewish philosophy from the 13th century on. In late medieval Jewish philosophy, Averroes became, next to Maimonides, the most important influence in the field. He arrived at this stature by means of the Hebrew translations of his works. Jewish philosophers describe him by such appellations as "the great sage," "the chief of the commentators [on Aristotle]," and "the soul and the intellect of Aristotle." Among Jewish philosophers there were some who tried to harmonize Averroes' teachings with those of Judaism, while there were others who had a purely philosophic interest in his views. Since Maimonides and Averroes disagreed on certain philosophic topics, some Jewish philosophers also attempted to reconcile their divergent views. The Hebrew printing press in Riva, which was active between 1558 and 1562 and produced about 35 titles. The press owed its success to the cooperation of three men: Cardinal Cristoforo Madruzzo, bishop of Trent, who had jurisdiction over the town and whose coat-of-arms appears … [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.

A beautiful copy of the first edition of Claude de Seyssel’s influential translation of Justinus’ history, with his important dedication to Louis XII, finely printed by Vascosan the year before he was made King’s printer. Justinus was a second century Roman historian. He describes this, his most notable work, as a collection of the most interesting and important passages from Pompeius Trogus' 'Historiae philippicae et totius mundi origina et terrae situs', written in the time of Augustus and now lost. This was a general history of those parts of the world that had come under the auspices of Alexander the Great, and takes as its main theme the Macedonian Empire founded by his father Philip. The last event it records (in Justinius' version) is in 20 B.C. Through his frequent digressions, Justinus here produces not an epitome but rather a us … [Click Below for Full Description]

Roma, Per Antonio Blado Impressore Camerale, 1559. In-8, plein vélin moderne rigide, dos lisse titré à la plume, 76 feuillets [A-I8, K4], errata au verso du dernier feuillet. Prima edizione. Scritta in forma di dialogo, l'opera denunciò gli abusi della vecchia nobiltà di Genova. L'opera ebbe larga risonanza, ma per essa l'autore fu processato in Genova dal vicario arcivescovile e posto al bando della repubblica. "Il solo testo del dibattito politico genovese del Cinque-Seicento a conoscere la via della stampa, associava i temi dell'indipendenza e del riarmo navale della Repubblica, immaginava per Genova una prospettiva di lucroso mercenario marinaro, era animato da una visione antinobiliare della storia genovese, proponeva una riforma censitaria del sistema politico" (Bitossi, D.B.I., Vol. 48, 1997). "Genova, was the subject of a work by one of its citizen, Uberto Foglietta. His ‘Della republica di Genova’ (the only vernacular work by this defender of the superiority of Latin) is a dialogue, influenced by Machiavelli's ideas on ancient Rome, in which a Genoese citizen tells another who is living in Antwerp of the conflicts between the nobles and the "popolari" which are destroying the city and threatening its freedom. The nobles emerge as the less deserving class, and the publication of these views (Rome, 1559) led to Foglietta's exile.

QUINQUARBOREO, JOHANN [CINQUARBRES, JEAN]:
Paris, Martin Juvenem (Le Jeune). In-4 broché, un feuillet blanc, 135 pp., 1559 La préface de cet ouvrage de référence s'adresse au lecteur chrétien, dans le cadre de l'humanisme linguistique qu'enseignait Cinquarbres au Collège de France. Le Jeune, bookprinter in Paris 1548-84, was one of the few in Paris who could print Hebrew characters at this time. Index Aurel 142282 (one copy only, in Bibl. Nat.). - - - Paris, au XVIe siècle, occupe une place tout à fait exceptionnelle dans la diffusion de la langue hébraïque et dans la découverte des textes par les intellectuels chrétiens. Cet engouement pour l'hébreu répond à des préoccupations scientifiques et religieuses : il s'agit de retrouver l'hebraica veritas afin de conforter l'enseignement du christianisme. Les premiers hébraïsants chrétiens ont souvent eu accès aux éditions juives d'Italie et profité du concours de juifs convertis. Rapidement, avec François Vatable, Jean Cinquarbres, Jean Mercier, Gilbert Genebrard, une école française se forme, dont l'activité est étròitement liée au Collège royal, où ils enseignent. Parmi les libraires parisiens, la dynastie des Estienne, mais aussi Gilles de Gourmont, Chrétien Wechel, Martin Le Jeune et Guillaume Morel contribuent largement à cette redécouverte de l'hébreu. Ils acquièrent le matériel typographique requis et fournissent les ouvrages nécessaires à l'enseignement, depuis les alphabets jusqu'aux grandes éditions bibliques. Si l'importance de l'hébreu dans la vie spirituelle et intellectuelle de la France de la Renaissance n'est plus à démontrer, la place exacte des impressi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition originale rare de la traduction française due à Jean Louveau. L'édition originale italienne est parue à Venise en 1550, sous le titre Problemi naturali e morali. Titre imprimé dans un encadrement gravé sur bois. Ouvrage « fort amusant, du genre de ceux de Cholière et Bouchet, mais moins répandu et plus rare » où l auteur examine avec une religieuse attention : pourquoi le chien masle hausse la jambe pour pisser et non la femelle ? La cause pourquoi les femmes ont plus de caquet que les hommes ? Puisqu il est beaucoup pire de faire les choses deshonnestes que de les dire, d où vient que les hommes ont plus de honte à les dire qu à les faire, etc . (Techener, Répertoire universel de bibliographie). Au même titre que les Facecies de Domenichi, ou bien encore les Heures de recreation de Louys Guicciardin, il fait partie des ouvrages facétieux traduits de l italien qui furent très appréciés et fort à la mode dans la deuxième moitié du XVIème siècle.
