         Conciliationes locorum scripturae, qui specie tenus inter se pugnare videntur, centuriae duae [.].

      - Bautzen, Johann Wolrab, 1560. 8vo. (8) 236 (43) lvs. Contemporary brown painted limp vellum. VD 16 A 2020; Kolde 7/m. Rare Latin edition of one of Althamer's most widely read writings. In 1527 Althamer published a refutation of a treatise by the Anabaptist leader Hans Denck (ca. 1495-1527), in which Denck had collected 40 apparently contradictory Scriptural passages. Althamer however, who added 60 further paradoxes of his own choice, showed the contradictions to be mere appearance which could be solved in a number of ways. In the years following the list of alleged discrepancies was greatly enlarged and finally the edition published in 1534 -as well as all later editions- discussed no less than 200 seemingly contradictory passages in the Bible. It went at least through 12 more editions in the sixteenth century and has also been translated in German. - Dated owner's inscription on first endpaper, library stamp and some library shelfmarks on title page, a single annotation on last endpaper, and a few old marginal annotations.

         Suite of six allegorical prints. France, c. 1560-1570

      - Six engraved prints, 3 oval, 3 rectangular, all except one white-on-black, plate size c. 80 x 65mm, sheet size 205 x 105mm, sewn together at top (trifle soiled). Three signed with variations of ?Cum privilegio regis Stephanus fecit?, second Minerva, fourth image Arithmetic, fifth Astronomy, last image ?Sacrifice of Abraham? A rare collection of individual plates by the skilled French mannerist engraver Etienne Delaune. Three are taken from his suites to illustrate the liberal arts, two are classical figures while the last is the ?Sacrifice of Abraham? from his Old Testament series. The common factor in all the prints is the exquisite execution of the mannerist borders and, as has often been noted, in his prints he shows a precision and intricacy associated with his original profession as a goldsmith.Etienne Delaune (Orléan 1518/19-1583) was trained as an engraver of medals, and worked with Benvenuto Cellini during the latter's stay in Paris from 1540-1545. By 1552, Delaune was employed as chief medallist at the royal mint, founded by Henry II, and in 1556 he furnished designs for Henry's parade armour. His extant prints consist mostly of allegorical subjects within rich, ornamental surrounds and are exeptional for their technical precision despite their often small size. Delaune's rare surviving drawings reveal the influence of Primaticcio and the school of Fontainebleau and his engravings helped to spread the Fountainebleau style among artists and craftsmen in France and beyond.

         Opusculum, in quo una oratio, & duae questiones: altera de certitudine, & altera de medietate mathematicarum continentur .

      Padua, Gratioso Perchacino, 1560 - 4to (94 x 48 mm), ff 40, with printer's device on title; small wormhole on blank inner margin of title, not affecting text, and another touching a few letters on last two leaves, a very nice, crisp copy in early patterned wrappers.First edition of this rare work on the philosophy of mathematics, and a work important to Galileo's assertion of mathematics as the foundation of scientific truth. Barozzi argues that mathematics is based on divine truth and is therefore capable of expressing philosophical certainties, a position derived from Proclus, who is quoted extensively. At the end of the Opusculum there is a reference to his translation of Proclus, which was published in the same year.'In 1560 he published Opusculum, in quo una Oratio, et duae Quaestiones: altera de certitudine, et altera de medietate Mathematicarum continentur. This was written to argue against the views of Alessandro Piccolomini on the nature of mathematical certainty published in Commentarium (Rome, 1547). Barozzi argues that mathematical certainty derives from the nature of its proofs: . the certitude of mathematics is contained in the syntactic rigour of demonstrations.It is not, therefore, inferior to logical certainty. In addition he argues that mathematical certainty, from the human standpoint, is superior to metaphysical certainty. For although metaphysical certainty is superior in absolute terms, due to the superiority of God, relative to human understanding mathematical certainty is superior' (MacTutor History of Mathematics online).'Barozzi . focused his interest on proving the scientificity - and not just certainty - of mathematics by stressing its middle position (medietas) between philosophy and metaphysics, both in the order of nature (ontology) and in the order of knowing (epistemology). This doctrine he deemed common to Aristotle and Plato and was the source of recognizing mathematical demonstrations as equivalent to demonstrations potissimae. The compatibility between the objects of a science and the kind of demonstrations it used led, according to Barozzi, to the inescapable recognition of the higher status of mathematics relative to philosophy.'The debate over the status of mathematics in the sixteenth century signaled the beginning of a structural shift on the medieval map of knowledge toward a different understanding of the place of mathematics' (Rivka Feldhay, 'The use and abuse of mathematical entities: Galileo and the Jesuits revisited' pp 85-88, in The Cambridge Companion to Galileo).Galileo owned a copy of this work and Clavius praised it as inspirational in his introduction to his commentary on Euclid's Elements.The work is dedicated to Cardinal Daniele Barbaro (1513-1570), mathematician, architect, and translator and commentator on Vitruvius. Barbaro was friends with Palladio and Tasso. He also served as Venetian ambassador to the court of Edward VI in London.Barozzi (1537-1604), a Venetian patrician, taught mathematics at the University of Padua. His 'edition of Proclus's commentary on the first book of Euclid's Elements was the first important translation of this work, for it was based on better manuscripts than previous efforts had been' (DSB).Provenance: my copy, sold to Beltrame library in 1998Riccardi I 82.2; OCLC records Burndy (Huntington), Harvard, Wisconsin, Yale, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma for North America

         APRILIS [The twelve months with views of Dutch towns; set title]

      Representation of the month of April within the series of the 'Twelve months with views on Dutch towns'. Here is 'Het Leeprosen huys by Haerlem', the hospital for the leprous and mentally ill people in Haarlem as it looked in the beginning of the seventeenth century. As a matter of fact this etching is a real document of a building complex that was heavily remodelled during the centuries according to its different functions. In 1320 begun the building of the hospital, just outside the city walls. Here were taken for the quarantine the sicks from lepra and plague but also, since 1560, mentally ill people. This was probably the oldest health institution in the Netherlands. On the left the Sint-Jacobskapel (ca. 1319-1477) and in the center the buildings for the mentally ill. In the foreground a portion of a field where peasants are sowing; on the right foreground two gentlemen on horseback overlooking the landscape. On the right background some boats on a canal. In the sky, above in the center the zodiacal sign of the Taurus.

         The secretes of the reverend Maister Alexis of Piemont. Containing excellent remedies against divers diseases, woundes, and other accidentes, with the maner to make distillations, parfumes, confitures, dyinges, colours, fusions, and meltinges...

      Nycolas England. 1560-62. Part 1 8vo, parts 2 & 3 4to. 3 vols bound in one. Twentieth century full brown calf, spine with raised bands and black morocco gilt lettering piece; pp. [vi] + 122 + [10]; [iv] + 161 + [15]; 79 + [9], bound with engraved title pages; long contemporary manuscript note to verso of title page of vol 1, occasional marginal notes in ink, discreet repairs to edges of a few leaves in vol 3, a little faint browning, otherwise very good. Third English edition of vol 1, first English editions of vols 2 & 3. Translated from French by William Warde. This is a rare, early collection of these celebrated books, attributed to Girolamo Ruscelli (1500-1566), an Italian alchemist and physician. It deals primarily with pharmaceutical subjects but also gives guidance on, for instance, dyeing animal skins and making invisible ink. The work marks the swelling interest in Paracelsian, experimental medicine and the rejection of Galen's teaching; many of the medicines and cures described are highly dramatic, and often involve incredibly cruel processes such as melting a red-haired dog in oil. Others seem purely superstitious, such as giving a woman a boiled hare concoction for breakfast to gauge how fertile she is. It was hugely influential, especially in Britain where natural philosophers such as Francis Bacon were to follow the experimental example, and was translated into every European language. It was the first book to introduce the idea of science as a search for the secrets of nature, with Alessio as a wandering professor of the arcane. Indeed, later writings by Ruscelli claim that the Secretes were the result of work by his very own 'Academy of Secrets' that he founded with a group of humanists in Naples in the 1540s, the first recorded scientific society. This, then, is a work that helped to usher in the Scientific Revolution. Tomita 3 and 9; Levinson Catalogue 60 I 17 (1595 edition) "it is one of our early sources for the history of psychiatry".

         Meubles

      Paris: circa 1560. The set of 46 engravings, plates 190 x 140 mm, sheets 320 x 210 mm, good impressions, watermark Edmond de (?), with margins. 19th-century calf gilt. Four plates re-margined, old reinforcements along gutters, occasional pale staining and paper toning, otherwise in good condition. Provenance: purchased from Librairie de Nobele, 1982. In the 16th century, Du Cerceau and Jan Vredeman de Vries each issued albums of furniture designs, the first of their kind to appear. The plates show beds, tables, one chair, twenty buffets and armoires so elaborate that no ordinary cabinetmaker could have made them. The buffets are especially ornate, displaying caryatids, sphinxes, masks, garlands of fruit or flowers, trophies, vases, etc. "Although many pieces are shown built on platforms to raise them off cold stone and tile floors, comfort appears to have been a minor consideration. The beds are shallow wooden boxes with all sorts of decorative protuberances-lion masks, swans, snakes, and monsters-on which to bruise the human body" (Janet Byrne, Renaissance Ornament Prints and Drawings, New York, 1981, p.110). From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

      - Representation of the month of April within the series of the 'Twelve months with views on Dutch towns'. Here is 'Het Leeprosen huys by Haerlem', the hospital for the leprous and mentally ill people in Haarlem as it looked in the beginning of the seventeenth century. As a matter of fact this etching is a real document of a building complex that was heavily remodelled during the centuries according to its different functions. In 1320 begun the building of the hospital, just outside the city walls. Here were taken for the quarantine the sicks from lepra and plague but also, since 1560, mentally ill people. This was probably the oldest health institution in the Netherlands. On the left the Sint-Jacobskapel (ca. 1319-1477) and in the center the buildings for the mentally ill. In the foreground a portion of a field where peasants are sowing; on the right foreground two gentlemen on horseback overlooking the landscape. On the right background some boats on a canal. In the sky, above in the center the zodiacal sign of the Taurus.

      Copper engraving, mm 280x400, signe and dated Venetjis æneis formis Bolognini Zalterij Anno. MDLXVI (1566).Perfect wide margined copy with original marginsA MILESTONE IN CARTOGRAPHY OF NORTH AMERICA. THE FIRST MAP ENTIRELY DEVOTED TO THE CONTINENT AND THE FIRST DETAILED MAP TO SHOW THE STRAIT OF ANIAN SEPARATING ASIA AND AMERICA. The map was engraved by the veronese Paolo Forlani, as recently stated by Woodward, and not by Bolognino Zaltieri as previously attributed, who published the second state (like ours) adding his name to the plate. It is the first detailed available map to depict the Strait of Anian; a few previous maps had already depicted the Strait of Anian, (whose name origins from a Marco Polo's 1559 edition), but not with such detail, being all world maps. Forlani based his map largely on the western part of a Gastaldi world map published from 1561, even if important sources are also Cartier's discoveries (1534-42), and some spanish explorations, like the Francisco Vasques de Coronado one (1540-42):Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), 80; David Woodward, "The Forlani Map of North America," Imago Mundi 46 (1994): 29-40; Burden, The Mapping of North America, 33; Meurer (Strabo) 191; Cohen, "Mapping of the West", pages 29-30.

         Io. Fernelii Ambiani de abditis rerum causis libri duo, postremo ab ipso authore recogniti, compluribusque in locis aucti, ad Henricum Franciae Regem Christianissimum . Editio postrema

      Parisiis, Apud Andream Wechelum 1560. In-8 relié plein vélin à recouverment de l'époque. Titre, 425, 36 pages et 1 feuillet blanc, marque de l'imprimeur au recto du dernier feuillet. Papier jauni par endroit, mouillure marginale sans aucune gravité. Dans son traité De abditis rerum causis, Fernel décrit les maladies épidémiques, endémiques, virulentes et contagieuses dont la syphilis, l'éléphantiasis et la rage, très négligées par la littérature médicale de son temps. Il développe une doctrine étiologique selon laquelle les maladies contagieuses épidémiques et pernicieuses ne se propagent que s'il existe des prédispositions dans la population. Enfin il crée le terme de physiologie et s'intéresse à la « chaleur innée », que nous appelons aujourd'hui température corporelle. Troisième édition des dialogues de Jean Fernel, médecin du roi Henri II. Bel exemplaire.

         La Prima Parte dell'historie del Peru [together with] La Seconda Parte delle Historie Generali dell’ India.

      1560 - A fine example of two important early chronicles of discovery, illustrated with a large copy of Bellere´s map of the Americas. 1560 and 1557. Venice. Giordano Ziletti and Andrea Arrivabene. Two works bound in one, 4to (155 x 100 mm). 1 ff., [16], 216, [2] pages, one fold out woodcut map; 1 ff., [32], 324 pp. Contemporary limp vellum, spine lettered in ink, slightly faded, rubbed, with traces of marbled paper. Both works in fine, fresh, and wide-margined copies; map folded, also in very good condition. 25,000 $ A fine and genuine copy of two famous accounts of Spanish adventures in the New World: the first, by Pedro Cieza de León (1520-1554) is the work he wrote after returning from the New World, ‘La Prima Parte dell'historie del Peru’; the second, by Francisco López de Gómara (c.1511-c.1566), “the first history of Mexico printed” (Wagner). Cieza de Leon´s work stands with those of Xerez and Zarate as the most reliable and early chronicles of Peru; Cieza had become a conquistador after seeing Hernando Pizarro return from the Indies laden with treasure as a boy, and participated in several campaigns in present-day Colombia and Lima. He was the first historian to write a global history of the Andes. His work describes military campaigns against rebellious natives, expeditions to make contacts with remote rulers supposedly possessed of enormous wealth, and the everyday hardships of life in South America. He often used native informants, and picked up local habits quickly: he describes making a breastplate out of tapir skin. “The first part.was the only one to be published in the sixteenth century. It describes the geography, history, and ethnology of the Viceroyalty of Peru.” (Hill 297). Lopez de Gómara was not a conquistador, but had direct access to Hernán Cortés and the other explorers returning from the New World. He compiled their accounts into a general history of Spanish activity in the area, albeit one which emphasised the role of Cortés, his voyages and expedition to Cuba, Santo Domingo, and Honduras, and the conquest of Mexico. Furthermore it includes valuable details on the life in America, native languages, ethnographical material, and what little information was available on California and the Southwest at such an early date (records Cortés’ expeditions to the western coast; the discovery and naming of California; the Ulloa voyages along the coast of Upper California; the preliminary journey to Cibola of Fray Marcos de Niza; and the expedition to the fabled Seven Cities by Francisco Vázquez de Coronado). ““Including the expeditions of Cortés in 1535, Francisco de Ulloa in 1539, and Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo in 1542” (Mathes). Cortes´ biography is tightly linked t the history of Mexico; Gomara´s work was swiftly supressed (1553, by order the Crown), possibly due to Cortes´ family opposition and claims to their rights in Mexico–which naturally included copious details of the Conqueror´s life. Despite this prohibition, this early chronicle of the new Continent was re-printed several times in the 16th century, and translated into Italian, English, French, and other languages. Lopez de Gomara (c.1511 – 1559) was secretary to Cortes upon his return to Spain, and praises him much –looked upon as a valiant men, and a hero- a position that allowed him access to otherwise secret and first-hand sources of information. It was in fact, the most frequently cited history of the American territories, even when defending Spanish actions in the colonization process. Of particular interest is the map in López de Gómara’s work of the Americas, after the original by the Antwerp-based scholar and printer Jean Bellère, which is “excessively rare” (Burden). For his depiction of North America, Bellère used details from the explorations of Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón, Estêvão Gomes and João Álvares Fagundes, which accounts for the extraordinary number of place names for so early a map.

Madrid, widow of Alonso M. de Balboa, 1617. Folio. With woodcut coat of arms on title-page, repeated at the end of books 1, 2 and 3. Contemporary parchment.

      Alt-Japan-Katalog 1151; Cordier, Japonica, cols 290-291; Palau 226932. Rare first edition of a history of the persecution of Christian missionaries in Japan and Japanese converts to Christianity, written in Spanish by the Portuguese Jesuit Luys Piñeyro (1560-1620). The history is in five books followed by lists of martyrs, a table of chapter titles, etc. Initially the religious activities of the Jesuits, who arrived in 1549, were tolerated by the Japanese government. Upon seeing the brutal converting methods and the destruction of Japanese temples outside the metropolitan provinces, Shogun Hideyoshi changed his policy towards the Christians in 1587. Churches were demolished, and priests were ordered to leave the country. In 1616 a new edict was issued, ordering not only the expulsion of foreign priests but also demanding the death penalty for Japanese Christians who refused to renounce their beliefs. Many of the deported priests simply defied the Japanese government and returned to Japan, but only few were actually executed. The present work describes the background to the deteriorating relations between the Japanese rulers and the representatives of Christianity. Piñeyro also deals with the determination of the Jesuits to continue to preach their religion even in the face of persecution.Early ownerships inscription at foot of title-page. In very good condition, with ample margins and crisp paper.

Pers, 1644. 4to. With engraved allegorical frontispiece and 196 emblematic woodcut illustrations (ca. 8.5 x 6 cm) in the text by Jan Christoffel Jegher. Parchment (ca. 1725?).

      Landwehr, Emblem books Low Countries 683; Praz, p. 474. First Dutch edition, newly and extensively illustrated, of a famous encyclopaedia of iconology, the Iconologia of Cesare Ripa (1560- 1645). It describes about 650 symbolic human or semi-human figures, illustrates nearly 200, and was intended as a guide for all kinds of artists, writers, orators and amateurs. In the present 1644 edition the Amsterdam publisher, bookseller and poet Dirck Pietersz. Pers (1581-1659) translated and edited Ripa's text and Castellini's additions and made further additions of his own. He also included 196 woodcut illustrations cut for this edition based on a selection of those in the 1630 edition. It was in this form that Ripa's work was best known to artists in the Dutch golden age and it remained in use by painters and designers for the decorative arts far into the 18th century. With water stains throughout, serious in the first few and last few leaves, and marginal tears or restorations in a few leaves, but still in good condition and with large margins. The binding is uniformly abraded but structurally sound. An important source of knowledge and inspiration for artists of the Dutch golden age.
