Paris, Michel de Vascosan, 1559. FIRST EDITION thus. Folio. ff. [vi] 104 [ii]. [aa6, A-R6, S4. (S4 blank)]. Roman letter, entirely ruled in red. Large grotesque woodcut initials and head-pieces. Light age yellowing, light water stain towards outer margin of title, and a couple of fore-edges. A fine copy, crisp and clean with excellent margins in beautiful contemporary limp vellum gilt, covers double and triple gilt ruled to a panel design, fleurons gilt to corners of outer panel, large scroll worked arabesque gilt stamped at centres, spine gilt ruled in compartments with bands gilt worked with floral tools, large rose tool gilt at centres, remains of alternate red and white silk ties, yapp edges, a.e.r. lower cover slightly warped at head. 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]

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 ?

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 .

Pietro Andrea Mattioli; Dioscorides Pedanius, of Anazarbos.
Venice: Venetiis : Valgrisiana (Vincenzo Valgrisi), 1559. Hardcover. Good. Folio, 32 x 21 cm. Two parts bound as one. Bound in contemporary 16th century, gilt armorial calf. Rebacked. 3rd Latin edition. [96] 776, 46 pages : approximately 700 woodcut illustrations (133 additional woodcuts from previous edition). Woodcut printer's devices. Refs: Adams D-668 (Apologia dated 1558); Nissen BBI 1305; NLM/Durling 3010. <br> Mattioli (1501-1577) was a Siennese doctor and naturalist. His Commentarii described more than one hundred new plants and contributed to the development of medical botany. This, his most important work, was first printed in 1544 in Italian, 1554 in Latin, French in 1561, Czech in 1562, and in German in 1563. The wood cuts in his work were accurate and standardized enough to allow for easy identification. While nominally a commentary on the work of the botanist Dioscordies, Mattioli significantly expanded the work by adding major new contributions. He relied in part on the contributions of the Turkish diplomat, Buscecq, his doctor, Quakelbeen, and the famed botanist, Luca Ghini, who founded the botanical garden in Pisa. In this work, Mattioli significantly provided the first known observation of a tomato being grown and eaten in Italy. He states that the tomato is fried in oil with salt and pepper. A description that was dutiful copied (and not doubt prepared) by a multitude of later authors. McCue, George Allen. "The History of the Use of the Tomato: An Annotated Bibliography."

Prima rara edizione in seconda emissione, con la dedica Papa Pio IV e il testo rinnovato nelle tre pagine seguenti. Secondo la tradizione, il De re anatomica di Colombo avrebbe dovuto essere illustrato da Michelangelo, ma questi non lasciò alcun disegno o documento che attestasse questa collaborazione mancata, che se fosse andata in essere avrebbe sicuramente generato un capolavoro assoluto. Invece, e purtroppo, l'opera venne pubblicata senza illustrazioni tranne che per il meraviglioso frontespizio, ispirato piè pari a quello della Fabrica di Vesalius. Colombo è noto per la sua scoperta circa la circolazione polmonare, ossia il passaggio di sangue dal ventricolo cardiaco destro a quello sinistro attraverso i polmoni.

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.

Münster, Sebastian.
Basel, Heinrich Petri, (March 1559). Folio (220 x 328 mm). (24), 474, (4), 475-476 pp, 477-480 ff., 481-608 pp., 609-612 ff., 613-1162, (2) pp. (complete thus). With woodcut title border, Münster's portrait on the verso, printer’s device on the final page by Urs Graf, 14 maps (11 double-page and 3 triple-page) as well as 37 double-page views and approximately 970 woodcuts in the text (including repeats). Contemporary full calf on six raised double bands with gilt central oval ornaments and corner fleurons to both covers; spine sparsely gilt. An early edition of Münster’s monumental work. The Cosmographia by Sebastian Münster (1488-1552), the German cartographer and cosmographer, was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. The most highly valued of all cosmographies, it passed through 24 editions within 100 years and was of principal importance for reviving the interest in geography in 16th century Europe. In spite of its numerous maps, Münster's Cosmography is largely a work of historical geography and history, and it was thus that it soon became the most popular work of its kind throughout Europe - not only in Germany, but also in France (where it saw several editions), Italy, and Bohemia. "The Latin edition, more scientific in many respects, was intended for the scholars in all of Europe" (cf. Burmeister, p. 14). - In good condition, with some frequent but slight waterstaining. A few near-contemporary underlinings and annotations, some in red ink. Binding rubbed, chafed and bumped. Provenance: handwritten ownership of Carl Isaak Rothovius, dated … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: John Kyngston, 1559. 2 volumes in one. Very Early Printing of the Fabyan Chronicle. Woodcut title borders showing the King in council at the head and Graftons device supported by two cherubs (McKerrow & Ferguson 67), historiated intitials. Folio, 260 x 179 mm., Early 19th century mottled calf, spine gilt. A rare and elusive book, and a pleasing survival, some wear, front cover held by cords, first title has the upper margin renewed affecting the border and text on the verso, an old ink stain on V1v, restoration to an old tear on A1, small hole on cc4 catching a few letters, some shoulder notes cropped, some age evidence. Still a very good copy of a book rarely seen, especially in commerce. A VERY RARE AND AN IMPORTANT WORK. FEW IF ANY COPIES EVER MAKE IT TO THE MARKETPLACE. "Fabyan was the first of the citizen chroniclers of London who conceived the design of expanding his diary into a general history. His work was called by himself 'The Concordance of Histories,' and beginning with the arrival of Brutus, gave a general survey of the affairs of England, and n later times of France also. The first six books are brief, and reach to the Norman Conquest; the seventh book extends from the Norman Conquest to his own day. Fabyan was well acquainted with Latin and French, and shows a large knowledge of previous writers, but his object is to harmonize their accounts, and so doing he shows no critical sagacity. He is valuable as an authority as he reaches his own time. From the accession of Richard I his book assumes the form of a London Chronicle, an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Achevé d'imprimer le 12 septembre 1559. Provenance : Ex-libris autographe Vidaud La Tour sur la page de titre et au titre du Premier livre, et plusieurs dizaines de notes et commentaires marginaux de la même main, en petite partie, sur les bords, coupés par le couteau du relieur. Les Vidaud, comtes de la Batie-Biviers et seigneurs de La Tour sont une famille qui a compté plusieurs générations de procureurs et d'avocats généraux aux Parlements de Dombes puis de Dauphiné. On ne sait pas grand chose de l'auteur, Héliodore d'Eumèse en Syrie (aujourd'hui Homs en arabe), qui semble avoir été confondu, selon les spécialistes modernes, par homonymie avec l'évêque de Thessalie ; compte tenu de "la coloration néo-pythagoricienne de l'oeuvre et de l'insistance sur la religion du soleil [...], tout cela incite à situer la date de la composition du roman dans la seconde moitié du IIIe siècle". Le texte grec de ce chef-d'oeuvre du roman, dont Racine disait que c'était son livre préféré, fut publié pour la première fois à Bâle en 1534.

Genève, Robert Estienne, 1559. In-folio de (8) ff., 564 pp., (14) ff. Vélin rigide, double filet à froid encadrant les plats, motif central arabisant plein or au centre, dos à nerfs. Reliure de l’époque. 348 x 224 mm. L’EDITION ORIGINALE DEFINITIVE, DE LA CLE DE VOUTE DE LA REFORME : près de la moitié du texte paraît ici pour la première fois. La première ébauche avait paru, en six chapitres, en 1536 ; Calvin passa le reste de sa vie à remanier et augmenter son œuvre, jusqu’à cette édition définitive en 80 chapitres. Elle est d’une grande rareté, peut-être tirée en nombre restreint comme le suppose Schreiber. Gilmont, n°59/4 ; Renouard, Estienne, p. 89. Exemplaire de la très rare première émission, avec le lieu d’impression Genève figurant en clair sur le titre (probablement réservée aux pays ou villes favorables à la Réforme) ; dans la seconde émission le mot Genève a été supprimé. « C’est la dernière édition donnée par Calvin » (Brunet). TRES BEL EXEMPLAIRE DANS UNE RELIURE EN VELIN DORE DE L’EPOQUE. Il a appartenu à François Ranchin (1560-1641), consul de Montpellier, médecin célèbre, grand curieux et ami de Peiresc. Mention Ranchini et amicorum sur le titre. D’une famille de magistrats convertis à la religion réformée, François Ranchin se tourna vers la médecine et devint professeur puis Chancelier de l’Université de Montpellier. Grand curieux, il constitua une précieuse collection de manuscrits médiévaux, de médailles et d’antiquités et, passionné de botanique, un merveilleux jardin de plantes et de fleurs. Ami de Peiresc et son correspondant, il fut consul de Montpell … [Click Below for Full Description]
