        THE ARTE OF WARRE, WRITTEN FIRST IN ITALIA[N] BY NICHOLAS MACHIAUELL, AND SET FORTHE IN ENGLISHE BY PETER WHITEHORNE, STUDIENT AT GRAIES INNE: WITH AN ADDICIO[N] OF OTHER LIKE MARCIALLE FEATES AND EXPERIMENTES, AS IN A TABLE IN THE ENDE OF THE BOOKE MAIE APPERE

      London: Niclas Inglande [Nicholas England], 1560. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. This is the very scarce first appearance in English of Machiavelli's "Art of War," originally published in Italian in 1520. In it, Machiavelli sets forth his firm belief that Italy will never be strong unless it raises a disciplined and patriotic citizen army to replace the mercenary troops currently in use. Athough he depends heavily on the Roman writers Livy and Vegetius, his understanding of tactics is often just and almost modern, except that he underrates the future of gunpowder. STC describes a second part of the "Art of War," with a separate title page for "Certain waies for the orderyng of souldiers in battelray" and a publication date in the colophon of 1562. In the "Bibliografia Machiavelliana," Bertelli and Innocenti only list the first part, based on their examination of Charles Fairfax Murray's copy, noting that the British Library copy had the additional work "Certain waies" bound after the "Art of Warre." Machiavelli (1469-1527), steeped in the reading of ancient historians, was a Florentine by birth, and served the brief Florentine Republic which arose when the young sons of Lorenzo de' Medici, confronted at the time of their father's death in 1492 with a French invasion, lost control of the state and went into exile. Our author played no part in the monk Savonarola's republic of virtue, but after the preacher had been burned, the new leader, Soderini, appointed him secretary and chancellor, an office which Machiavelli held until the return of the Medici to power in 1512. As secretary he was incessantly writing reports and directives, but he also served as ambassador and thus learned to know personally the leading statesmen of the era, including Louis XII of France, Pope Julius II, Pope Alexander Borgia, and his son Cesare. On the return of the Medici, Machiavelli not only lost his post, but he was tortured on the rack. For the remainder of his life, he lived on his family farm, writing the works that have made him one of the central figures of the Renaissance. Translator Peter Whitehorne, or Whithorne, calls himself both a fellow of Gray's Inn and a "poore souldiour" who served in the armies of Spain, campaigning in Africa, where he worked on this translation. He later turned into English from Italian another military work by the ancient Greek Onosander. Our copy was once in the impressive library of Philadelphia financier Clarence H. Clark (1833-1906), who spent the 1860 equivalent of $750,000 to build a library--with meticulously catalogued contents--onto his mansion, which already housed a private art gallery. Copies of this work in any state of completeness or condition are extremely scarce. ABPC finds just one copy at auction in the past 40 years (in 1982), with "two parts in one volume" and with the folding plate torn; Rare Book Hub has no copies of the first edition in its records going back to 1917. To find a copy in the condition seen here (especially with a fresh, unrestored map) is most fortunate.. 207 x 145 mm. (8 1/8 x 5 3/4"). 4 p.l., cix, [12] leaves (lacking final blank). Without part II called for in STC (but not in Bertelli & Innocenti).Translated by Peter Whitehorne. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH. Fine 19th century red crushed morocco, gilt, by Francis Bedford (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with French fillet border, raised bands, spine compartments with central starburst formed of small tools, scrolling cornerpieces, gilt titling, turn-ins densely gilt, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Seven large woodcut initials, printer's device (McKerrow 116a) on final page, title page with ornate frame containing a vignette of a battle scene, seven double-page typographical diagrams of troop formations, one double-page wood engraving of a fortified camp, and a large folding plate depicting a battle, with troops attacking a fort. Verso of front free endpaper with engraved book label of Clarence H. Clark and engraved library label. Bertelli & Innocenti 131; STC 17164. A hint of rubbing to extremities, leaves lightly washed and pressed (in accordance with bibliophilic fashion at the time of rebinding), one leaf with neat two-inch fore-margin repair touching a couple of letters in a shoulder note, isolated small stains, otherwise a fine copy with especially wide margins, the fragile folding map particularly fresh and bright, and the lustrous binding with few signs of wear.

        Sardinia insula inter Africu[m], et Tyrrenu[m]

      Venezia 1560 - Rarissima carta dell’isola che attribuiamo a Giacomo Gastaldi e che consideriamo il prototipo di questa tipologia di carte del ‘500. L’opera, in passato anonima e conosciuta solo attraverso l’esemplare conservato nell’atlante Doria, la troviamo stampata in un singolo foglio di atlante insieme alla carta della Corsica firmata da Gastaldi, nell’esemplare venduto in asta a Londra (Sotheby’s, 2000). Le due carte sono assolutamente simili in tutto, anche nella inusuale modo di rappresentare l’orientazione, attraverso una sorta di croce che attraversa tutta l’isola. Ulteriore conferma dell’attribuzione al Gastaldi deriva dalla presenza della carta nel suddetto Atlante Doria, insieme ad un gruppo di carte delle isole del cartografo piemontese, quali Malta, Elba e la Corsica. Dal confronto con tutte le altre carte dell’isola, si notano le seguenti differenze: orografia e idrografia meno accentuate; in alto a nord del fiume Temo viene indicato Fresan anziché S.reparata (nelle altre carte Fresan è a sud del fiume); sempre a nord, sotto l’isola denominata Tolata, non vi è piu disegnata un’isoletta priva dell’indicazione toponomastica, che si trova invece nelle altre carte. Il primo stato della carta è una prova di stampa, parzialmente incompleta. Ad oggi è noto un solo esemplare, venduto in asta a Parigi nel 2006 ed ora nella collezione di chi scrive. Al centro dell’isola, l’iscrizione SARDEGNA. In alto, in una targa incorniciata da fregi, una breve descrizione del territorio Sardinia insula inter Africu[m], et Tyrrenu[m] pelagus sita: magnitudine 562 mil. pas. fertilis admodu[m] animaliu[m]que varij generis abundans metallis argentarijs, stagnis, fontibus, salubris prestantissima. Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro, il nord in alto. Carta priva di graduazione ai margini e di scala grafica.?Acquaforte e bulino, ampi margini, perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare di secondo stato, del tutto simile al precedente, ma viene arricchito il disegno orografico con l’aggiunta di diversi monticelli nella parte centro-settentrionale dell’isola. Aggiunti anche degli alberelli di forma diversa da quelli già presenti. Meraviglioso esemplare di questa influente mappa della Sardegna, conosciuto in pochissimi esemplari. Erroneamente attribuita al Duchetti in Bifolco-Ronca (2014). Extremely rare map of the Sardinia, which we attribue to Camocio, and we consider as prototype of this kind of sixteenth century's map. Just one example of this map, formerly attribued to an anonimous mapmaker-engraver, is known, kept in the Doria's atlas, and printed on a single sheet with the map of Corsica, signed by Gastaldi, in the copy sold at auction by Sotheby's London (2000). The two cards are very similar, even for the unusual orientation, through a sort of cross that runs through the island. To confirm the attribution to Gastaldi is also the presence, in the aforementioned Atlas Doria, of other islands' map realized by Piedmontese cartographer, such as Malta, Elba and Corsica. Comparing all other maps of the island, it's possible notice the following differences: topography and hydrography are less marked; at the top, on northern river Temo is indicated Fresan instead of S.Reparata (in other maps Fresan is at south of the river); at north, under the island called Tolata, there isn't the small island without any indication place names, which is located on the other maps. The first state of this map is a proof, partially incomplete. To date only one example of the first state is known, sold at auction in Paris in 2006 and now in the collection of the writer. At the island's center, lettered SARDINIA. At top, in a cartouche framed by friezes, a brief Latin description of the territory "Sardinia insula inter Africu [m], et Tyrrenu [m] pelagus located: magnitude 562 mil. pas. fertilis admodu [m] animaliu [m] que varij generis abundans metallis argentarijs, stagnis, fontibus, Salubris prestantissima" Map oriented with Nord at the top; without graduation at the edg [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Ecce Homo

      1560 - Xilografia, circa 1560, priva di firma. Bellissima prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, completa della linea marginale, piccoli fori di tarlo perfettamente restaurati, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera è sconosciuta alle bibliografie e può essere riconducibile ai lavori di scuola veneta di metà XVI secolo. Tiziano, intuendo la grande potenzialità della silografia nella traduzione dei suoi disegni e delle visioni più audaci, affidò ad un gruppo di artisti - composto tra gli altri da Domenico Campagnola, Nicolò Boldrini, Giovanni Britto e Giuseppe Scolari - la realizzazione di questi "disegni intagliati in legno". Andrea Meldolla, già allievo e traduttore al bulino del Parmigianino, è autore certo di tre silografie, diverse per loro nello stile esecutorio. Il Cristo Deriso e la Sepoltura di Cristo presentano eleganze di modi ed una chiarezza lineare che derivano dall’influsso esercitato dall’arte del Salviati, mentre lo Sposalizio mistico di Santa Caterina mostra il vigore di alcune silografie giovanili di Domenico Campagnola. Il tema del Cristo di fronte a Pilato è il più ricorrente nel catalogo maturo del Meldolla; ne esistono, infatti, quattro versioni pittoriche diverse, divise fra le Gallerie dell’Accademia di Venezia, il Museo nazionale di Stoccolma, le Royal Collections di Hampton Court e il Kunst historisches Museum di Vienna. A questa serie si può idealmente affiancare il Cristo davanti a Erode del Museo di Capodimonte. Il Meldolla rinforzò qui l’impianto chiaroscurale, insistendo su uno sfondo buio e su tonalità brunite appena ravvivate da accensioni luministiche preziose e sottilmente calibrate, proprio come in questo lavoro silografico. Il Richardson fa notare come le incisioni del Meldolla , sebbene siano basate su composizioni di altri artisti, siano interpretazioni libere o copie creative. Rarissima ed interessante opera, attribuibile allo Schiavone. Woodcut, about 1560, without signature. A beautiful impression, rich in tone, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, showing the borderline, small wormholes perfectly restored, otherwise in excellent condition. The work is unknown to bibliographies and can be traced back to the work of the Venetian school of mid-sixteenth century. Titian, realizing the great potential of the woodcut in the translation of his drawings and visions bolder, entrusted to a group of artists - among others composed by Domenico Campagnola, Nicolò Boldrini, Giovanni Britto and Giuseppe Scolari - the creation of these "carved designs in wood. "Andrea Meldolla, a former student and translator of the works by Parmigianino, is the author of some three woodcuts, different in style enforceable. Christ Mocked and the Entombment of Christ present elegance of manners and a linear clarity resulting from the influence exercised by the art of Salviati, while the Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine of some woodcuts shows the vigor of youth Domenico Campagnola. The theme of Christ before Pilate is the most common in the catalog of the mature Meldolla. There are, in fact, four different versions of paintings, divided between the Accademia Gallery in Venice, the National Museum in Stockholm, the Royal Collections at Hampton Court and historisches Kunst Museum in Vienna. In this series you can ideally complement Christ before Herod the Museum of Capodimonte. The Meldolla here reinforced the system of chiaroscuro, insisting on a background of dark and burnished tones enlivened by just switching luminist precious and subtly calibrated, as in this woodcut. The Richardson points out that the engravings of Meldolla, though based on compositions by other artists, are free interpretations or creative copying. Very rare and interesting work, attributable to Schiavone.

        A Profitable Booke of Maister Iohn Perkins, Felowe of the Inner...

      1560. Rare Imprint of A Profitable Booke That is Not Listed in Beale Perkins, John [d. 1545]. A Profitable Booke of Maister Iohn Perkins, Felowe of the Inner Temple Treating of the Lawes of Englande. [London]: Apud Richardum Totell, [c.1560-1565]. 19, 168 ff., [1] pp. Leaf F7 (Fol. 39) and fore-edge of Leaf N3 (Fol. 91) supplied in facsimile Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary calf, recently rebacked in period style, blind rules to boards, gilt-edged raised bands and gilt title to spine. A few scratches and creases to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, corners and a few sections of board edges worn, pastedowns removed. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, light edgwear to some leaves. Early owner initials to title page in miniscule hand, annotations in similar hand to margins of a few leaves. An appealing copy of a rare imprint. * Early edition of a work first published in 1528. Main text in Law-French, preface in Latin. A popular work during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries that was held in high regard by Coke, Perkins' Profitable Booke went through numerous editions in both English and Law-French. Devoted mostly to the land law as developed in the Year Books, it is divided into the following topics: grants, deeds, feoffments, exchanges, dower, curtesy, wills, devises, surrenders, reservations, and conditions. This copy does not have a publication date, but its colophon, pagination and printing errors suggest either 1560 or 1565. The colophon reads: "Imprinted at Lon-/ don in fletestrete with-/ in temple barre, at the signe of/ the hande and starre, by/ Richarde Tottle"; leaf 154 is numbered 167. All of the imprints listed in Beale have printed dates. However, Pollard and Redgrave list two undated imprints with the provisional dates of 1560 and 1565.

        Document Signed 'Lombart', in French with transcription and translation, (Jean-Antoine, master of the Royal Post of Paris, valet de chambre to François II of France)

      1560 - being his receipt for 57 livres 10 sols tournois from François de Vigny, Receiver of Taxes for Paris, for the quarter ending 30th June 1560, being the interest on money lent to the Provost of Merchants and Échevins [aldermen] of Paris on 17th March 1553 [1554, new style], vellum, 1 side 5¼" x 12", [Paris], 16th July Of great interest as an early 'municipal loan', detailing the taxes on which the principal and interest were secured. The taxes are on wine, woad or madder entering or leaving Paris, and if these are not enough, the loan is secured on any surplus from the tax for supplying foot-soldiers (Paris undertook to maintain 7,500 out of 50,000 nationally) and, as a last resort, the city's 'inherited domain'. Note that in the rates for wine, '15 sols' and '10 sols' should probably read '15 deniers' and '10 deniers', these being the amounts allowed by the letters patent of Henri II, 7th February 1554. Paris used this way of meeting royal demands from about 1522 to the Revolution. Those who lent money to the city were often officials (such as the Master of the Post, or Customs Adjudicators) who had considerable sums to invest. Interest was paid 'le douze denier' or at 8 and 1/3% per annum. See A. de Saint-Julien and G. Bienaymé, 'Histoire des Droits d'Entrée et d'Octroi à Paris', 1887, especially p. 44 and Table I p.2 (wine), p. 41 (dyes), which tells a fascinating story of the taxes levied at the city boundaries, only abolished in the 20th century. The Royal Post, under the statute of 1464, carried government mail between Paris and the rest of France. Influential people could use it on condition their letters were read first ! Ordinary citizens used the Paris University Post which kept scholars in touch with their homes. There was no local post within Paris till 1760. A document from the short reign of François II, husband of Mary Queen of Scots. The titles gentilhomme and valet de chambre du roi were honorary and did not imply personal duties to the king.

        De febribus [.] in Avic[ennae] quarti canonis fen primam. Dilucida atque optima expositio [.].

      Venice, heirs of Lucantonio Giunta, 1560. - Folio (227 x 317 mm). (18), 191 ff. (without final blank). Printer's device on title page and, in a different version, on the last page. Contemporary vellum. Traces of ties. First issue under this title, previously released as "Expositio in primam fen quarti canonis Avenicennae" (1506). A commentary (with the text, in the version of Gerardus Cremonensis) of book four, part (fen) one of Avicenna's systematic "Canon of Medicine", written in Arabic but widely translated throughout the Middle Ages and the basis of medical training in the West as late as the mid-17th century. It continues in use to this day in parts of the Arab world. Through this encyclopedic work, the author exerted "perhaps a wider influence in the eastern and western hemispheres than any other Islamic thinker" (PMM). "The 'Qanun' [.] contains some of the most illuminating thoughts pertaining to distinction of mediastinitis from pleurisy; contagious nature of phthisis; distribution of diseases by water and soil; careful description of skin troubles; of sexual diseases and perversions; of nervous ailments" (Sarton, Introduction to the History of Science). The present part is dedicated to a discussion of feverish illnesses. - 17th century ownership "Bernardinus Statius Phys." on flyleaf. Some brownstaining throughout, as common; some worming to spine. Still a good copy. Edit 16, CNCE 2345. Adams A 1541. Durling 245. Cf. Wellcome I, 387 (only the Venice reprint). PMM 11.

      1560. -->**Fol. 91 supplied in facsimile**. Rare Imprint of A Profitable Booke That is Not Listed in Beale Perkins, John [d. 1545]. A Profitable Booke of Maister Iohn Perkins, Felowe of the Inner Temple Treating of the Lawes of Englande. [London]: Apud Richardum Totell, [c.1560-1565]. 19, 168 ff., [1] pp. Leaf F7 (Fol. 39) and fore-edge of Leaf N3 (Fol. 91) supplied in facsimile Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-3/4"). Contemporary calf, recently rebacked in period style, blind rules to boards, gilt-edged raised bands and gilt title to spine. A few scratches and creases to boards, moderate rubbing to extremities, corners and a few sections of board edges worn, pastedowns removed. Moderate toning, somewhat heavier in places, light edgwear to some leaves. Early owner initials to title page in miniscule hand, annotations in similar hand to margins of a few leaves. An appealing copy of a rare imprint. $750. * Early edition of a work first published in 1528. Main text in Law-French, preface in Latin. A popular work during the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries that was held in high regard by Coke, Perkins' Profitable Booke went through numerous editions in both English and Law-French. Devoted mostly to the land law as developed in the Year Books, it is divided into the following topics: grants, deeds, feoffments, exchanges, dower, curtesy, wills, devises, surrenders, reservations, and conditions. This copy does not have a publication date, but its colophon, pagination and printing errors suggest either 1560 or 1565. The colophon reads: "Imprinted at Lon-/ don in fletestrete with-/ in temple barre, at the signe of/ the hande and starre, by/ Richarde Tottle"; leaf 154 is numbered 167. All of the imprints listed in Beale have printed dates. However, Pollard and Redgrave list two undated imprints with the provisional dates of 1560 and 1565. Records on OCLC with an identical colophon, pagination and printing errors of our copy state 1560, except for Harvard, which gives a provisional date of 1559.

        Arresto di Gesù nel Getsemani

      1560. Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1560, monogrammata in lastra in basso al centro. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "giglio entro cerchio", irregolarmente rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Donato Bertelli era stampatore, editore calcografico e cartografico, mercante di stampe a Venezia in Merzaria, "all'insegna di S. Marco". Noto certamente a Padova, dal momento che si sottoscrisse "Donatus Bertellius patavinus", nel 1558 si firmava "Donato de Piero", in seguito più comunemente "Donato Bertelli libraro". I limiti dell'attività del Bertelli, comunemente fissati tra il 1563 e il 1574, possono essere dilatati, sulla scorta delle carte da lui edite, al 1558 - 1592. Nell'anno 1559 frequentava la bottega di Ferdinando Bertelli, col quale non sono chiari i rapporti di parentela; da lui ereditò i rami sostituendovi il suo nome, e in data 1 aprile 1571 fu iscritto alla matricola dell'Arte degli stampatori. Suo successore "alla Libraria di S. Marco" fu Andrea, attivo fra il 1594 e il 1601, che non sempre utilizzò i vecchi rami di Donato. L'opera, non descritta in nessuno dei repertori consultati, è rarissima. Etching and engraving, circa 1560, monogrammed in plate lower center. Magnificent proof, rich tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "lily within the circle", irregularly trimmed to copper, in excellent condition. Donato Bertelli was printer, publisher and map & print dealer in Venice Merzaria, "all'insegna di S. Marco". Certainly known in Padua, since it is signed "Donatus Bertellius Patavinus", in 1558 signed himself "Donato de Piero", hereinafter more commonly "Donato Bertelli Libraro". The limits of the Bertelli, commonly set between 1563 and 1574, can be expanded on the basis of the papers he published, in 1558 to 1592. In 1559 attended the workshop of Ferdinand Bertelli, are not clear with whom the ties of kinship, from whom he inherited the branches substituting his name, and on April 1, 1571 was written to serial printers Art. The work was not described in any of the catalogs consulted, is very rare. Bury, The Print in Italy, p.221. Dimensioni 302x410.

      Sansovino, 1560. in-4, cc (4), 88 (4), ultima bianca, errata in fine. Bella legatura in p. vitello, filetti a secco ai piatti e fregi a secco alle cerniere, titolo e fregi in oro su dorso a nervi, tagli spruzzati; car. corsivo, testatine, finalini, iniziali ornate. Rutilio Tauro Emiliano Palladio viene annoverato tra gli Scriptores Rei Rusticae o Geoponici, ovvero quel grupppo di autori greci o romani che scrissero in tema di allevamento e di agricoltura. La presente opera, in latino con titolo ''Opus agriculturae'' o ''De re rustica'', si divide in tredici libri: il primo ha carattere introduttivo mentre i successivi dodici libri riproducono una sorta di calendario rurale (uno per ciascun mese). L'organizzazione della materia sotto forma calendario (e quindi con finalità pratiche che non superano l'orizzonte della quotidianità) è forse l'aspetto più originale e interessante dell'opera di Palladio e documenta il ripiegamento del sistema agricolo verso forme non più orientate al mercato e allo scambio tipico della tarda antichità. Ottimo esemplare, freschissimo (salvo leggeri aloni al margine interno dei primi e degli ultimi 4 fogli e una macchia alle carte 59-61)

La Nouvelle Natura Breuiu[m] du Iudge Tresreverende Monsieur Anthonie Fitzherbert, Dernierement Renue & Corrige per Laucteur, Avecques un Table Perfaicte des Choses Notables Contenues en Ycelle, Novelment Co[m]posee per Guilliaumle Rastell, & Iammais per Cydeuaunt Imprimee. London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1553 [i.e. 1560 colophon]. [xxxii] of [xxxiii], 271, [1] ff. The missing leaf is a blank, collation otherwise complete. Octavo (6-1/4" x 4-1/4"). Nineteenth-century paneled calf, dentelles to board edges and interior, rebacked retaining earlier spine, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, edges rouged, marbled pastedowns, free endpapers lacking (or never present). Moderate rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends, hinges cracked, armorial bookplate to rear pastedown. Title printed within woodcut architectural border. Some toning to interior, very faint dampstaining to portions of text, dampspotting to a few leaves, light soiling and some edgewear to title page. Extensive annotations in early court hand to endleaves, title page and most of text. An appealing wide-margined copy. $3,000. * First published in 1534, the Nouvelle Natura Brevium is a manual of procedure written by a Judge of the Common Pleas during the reign of Henry VIII. Winfield notes that "Coke put it among the books which he considered most necessary and of greatest authority and excellency"; Blackstone considered it an authority as well. Compiled from the earlier Natura Brevia and the Registrum Brevium, it includes several original observations on the form and function of writs. Rastell's revisions include the addition of a table. A popular work, it went through numerous editions in Law French and English, the final appearing in 1794. It remains significant to this day for its descriptions of writs that were becoming obsolete in the early sixteenth century. Some of the annotations in our copy offer commentary or cite passages in other treatises, such as Lambard's Eirenarcha. A few combine references to cases, commentary and a treatise citation.

        De Solaribus horologiis & Quadrantibus, Libri quatuor.

      Paris, Guillaume Cavellat, (1560). ____ Première édition séparée de cet ouvrage. Ce beau traité décrit de nombreuses horloges solaires et hydrauliques. La fin de l'ouvrage traite du planisphère ou astrolable et du quadrant. Un cadran en ivoire, signé par Oronce Fine, en forme de bateau (navicula) est conservé dans un musée de Milan. Illustré par 57 bois gravés dans le texte. Exemplaire complet de la grande planche repliée après la page 204. Très nombreuses initiales gravées. Titre dans un bel encadrement orné avec la marque de Cavellat au centre, que l'on retrouve agrandie au verso du dernier feuillet. Exemplaire de premier état, sans date sur le titre. Ce texte avait été publié dans la 'Protomathesis' du même auteur, mais pour cette édition, préparée par son fils Jean, les bois ont été regravés. La dédicace présente une description émouvante de la misère où sont tombés les enfants d'Oronce Fine après la mort de leurs parents. Jean Fine y précise que c'est sur les conseils d'Antoine Mizauld qu'il a entrepris de faire rééditer le travail de son père pour l'offrir au cardinal de Châtillon. Dans l'avis au lecteur, Cavellat expose pour quelles raisons peu d'imprimeurs et de libraires éditent des livres scientifiques : l'impression des ouvrages de ce type entraîne de grands frais car ils doivent être illustrés de figures complexes et exigent un travail d'une grande précision. Le dos a été soigneusement refait. Bel exemplaire. Renouard, Cavellat 193. Harvard 232. Fairfax-Murray 165. Lalande 84.***** First separate edition.

        De Rerum Invotoribus lib. VIII. Eiusdem in dominicam precem commentariolus

      apud Iacobum Boyerium. New edition. The work was blacklisted and was republished in 1575 in redacted form and editing that we present is not so no. The first French translation seems to have appeared in 1527 as a copy of the University of Glasgow, although contradictory data gives 1528 as the date of the first French edition in Latin by Robert Etienne. Rare, like all editions. Absent from the BNF and French catalogs (except for one edition in Lyon 1586), as many libraries. It was impossible to find the date of the original, certainly in the early years of the sixteenth in Italy, although Gregory gives 1571 for the first edition ...? Brunet gives 1499 as the date of the first édition.Impression Italic. Vellum full time. Polydore Vergil (1470-1555) was born and died in Urbino, after studying in Bologna and Padua, he became secretary to the Duke of Urbino and the chamberlain of Alexander VI. His first two writings made him famous and won great popularity 'Proverbiorum Libellus' and' De Rerum inventoribus', translated into French by 'The inventors of things. In 1501 the pope sent him to England, becoming intimate of Henry VII, the latter ordered him a history of England by which Polidoro became the first modern historian, not content to make a simple but chronic student events and he influenced all future historians and even Shakespeare in his vision of the story. He returned to his native country during the religious changes in England. (Catholic Encyclopedia). In the form of articles, it is treated with all kinds of inventions, salt, pottery, paintings, linen, music ... The book is also a history of medicine and magic. Polydore Vergil naturally drew on much the Ancients.

        Lettere volgari di Mons. Paolo Giovio da Como vescovo di Nocera. Raccolte per Messer Lodovico Domenichi. Et nuovamente stampate con la tavola.

      Giovanni Battista e Melchiorre Sessa, 1560. In 8vo (cm 15,3), legatura inglese dei primi del Novecento in piena pelle con elaborate impressioni a secco, risguardi in carta marmorizzata (parte superiore del dorso e cerniere restaurate), cc. 122, (2). Frontespizio con fregio tipografico e marca editoriale al centro. Ex-libris a stampa di William Wickham. Titolo un po' sporco, ma ottima copia annotata nel margine da almeno due mani differenti.PRIMA EDIZIONE, curata da Lodovico Domenichi e da questi dedicata al gentiluomo genovese Matteo Montenegro in data 1 aprile 1560, delle lettere volgari di Paolo Giovio.Dopo la morte di quest'ultimo, il Domenichi si diede a raccogliere l'epistolario in italiano del suo defunto maestro e, grazie anche alla collaborazione del nipote Giulio Giovio, riuscì a pubblicarne una buona parte.Le presunte edizioni del 1548 e del 1555 sono in realtà l'edizione del 1560 con date di stampa erronee.Le lettere del Giovio apparvero copiosamente anche in varie antologie epistolari del tempo ll a partire dall'antologia dell'Atanagi del 1554, in quella ruscelliana del 1556, nelle Lettere facete del 1561'gg (L. Braida, Libri di lettere. Le raccolte epistolari del Cinquecento tra inquitudini religiose e "buon volgare"?, Bari, 2009, p. 199).Dopo gli studi compiuti a Pavia e Padova sotto la guida di P. Pomponazzi, Paolo Giovio esercitò la professione medica a Como, sua città natale, ma ben presto preferì dedicarsi, seguendo la sua vera vocazione, alla raccolta di notizie e documenti storici. Viaggiò molto per l'Italia e per l'Europa. Nel 1513 fu alla corte di Leone X. Nel 1519 accompagnò a Firenze il cardinale Giuliano de' Medici, che poi, eletto papa, lo tenne presso di sé a Roma fino al 1527. Nel 1528 fu nominato vescovo di Nocera dei Pagani, ma continuò ad avere incarichi e a compiere viaggi. Nel 1549 divenne vescovo di Como, ma nel 1551 si trasferì a Firenze su invito di Cosimo I. Vastissima fu la sua produzione, prevalentemente in latino, e grandissimo fu il successo dei suoi scritti, stampati e tradotti innumerevoli volte in tutta Europa (cfr. T.C. Price Zimmermann, Paolo Giovio, Princeton, 1995, passim, B. Agosti, Paolo Giovio. Uno storico lombardo nella cultura artistica del Cinquecento, Firenze, 2008, passim).Edit16, CNCE21232.

        Lettera dell'illustre S. Costanzo Landi, conte di Compiano sopra una impresa d'un pino, con i motti postovi, & con la dechiaratione di tutta la natura del Pino.

      [Valerio & Girolamo Meda] for Giovanni Antonio degli Antoni, 1560. In 8°, cc (24). Con incisione in legno di un pino al frontespizio. Legatura in pelle di inizio Novecento, firma di appartenenza al frontespizio datata 1658. Ottima copia. PRIMA EDIZIONE, dedicata al conte Guido Sangiorgio (4 maggio 1558). Nell'opera viene presentata un'impresa raffigurante un albero di pino con pigne. Landi, dopo aver dichiarato di aver letto i trattati di Giovio, Ruscelli, Comenichi e Simeoni, sottolinea come le cinque regole stabilite da Giovio per la realizzazione di un'impresa siano certamente sufficienti, quindi sviluppa le proprie teorie sull'argomento. "Schon der Titel stellt die Frage, der die bisherigen Traktate aus dem Weg gingen. Was bedeutet hier Natur, aus der noch offenbar ein beträchtlicher Teil des für die Pictura zu verwendenden Materials genommen wird? Der Brief verspricht überdies Auskunft über 'tutta la Natura del Pino' zu geben. Mit der oft nicht genug zu wiederholenden Einschränkung, dass es sich nicht um philosophische Traktate handelt und deshalb keine philosophische Erörterung des Naturbegriffs verlangt werden kann, muss geprüft werden, ob Natur hier einen gedeuteten Weltzusammenhang meint, so wie er beispielsweise im Physiologus begegnet, und ob dessen Trennung in einem naturkundlichen Bericht und eine teleologische Deutung nachgeahmt wird" (D. Sulzer, Traktate zur Emblematik. Studien zu einer Geschichte der Emblemtheorie, St. Ingbert, 1992, p. 138). Costanzo Landi, rampollo di una nobile famiglia piacentina, dopo aver ricevuto una prima educazione di stampo umanistico da Benedetto Labadini, proseguì i propri studi presso l'università di Bologna, dove divenne discepolo e amico di Andrea Alciati. Nel 1546 pubblicò una prima raccolta di versi latini: &ldquo,Lusus puerilium libellus&rdquo,. Durante un soggiorno a Roma si avvicinò alla numismatica. Fino al 1548 rimase a Pavia con Alciati, e pubblicò alcuni trattati di diritto. Nel 1549 fu pubblicata la sua seconda raccolta di versi latini: &ldquo,Carmina&rdquo,. Durante questo periodo entrò in contatto con Alberto Lollio, Lilio Gregorio Giraldi, Giovanni Battista Giraldi Cinzio, Camillo Gambara, Girolamo Vida e Bernardo Tasso. Nel 1551-1552, a Padova, ebbe la possibilità di studiare medicina (un trattato sull'igiene e sulla dietetica, fu pubblicato a Lione nel 1557, cf. W. Artelt, Costanzo Landi und seine 'Methodus de bona valetudine tuendi', in: "Sudhoffs Archiv für Geschichte der Medizin", 25, 1932, pp. 316-329). Nel corso degli ultimi anni della propria vita, trascorsi a Pavia e a Piacenza, si dedicò allo studio della filosofia e della numismatica (V. Osimo, Costanzo Landi gentiluomo e letterato piacentino del secolo XVI, Venezia, 1900, passim). Edit 16, CNCE29200, Universal STC, 837237, J. Landwehr, French, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese Books of Devices and Emblems, 1534-1827, (Utrecht, 1976), p, 119, no. 441, M. Praz, Studies in Seventeenth Century Imagery, (Roma, 1975),p. 394.

      - Zurich, Conrad Froschauer, 1560. Folio (396 x 245mm), I. pp. 137, 11, with contemporary handcoloured woodcut printer's device and a separate handcoloured woodcut of a bird on title and 229 contemporary handcoloured woodcuts of birds, last leaf with handcoloured woodcut portrait of Gesner; II. pp. 127, [9], with contemporary handcoloured printer's device on title and 149 contemporary handcoloured woodcuts; III. pp. [xxviii], 374, [2], with 737 contemporary handcoloured woodcuts; the first few leaves with old creases and a few minor repairs to marginal tears, a fine copy in contemporary calf, both covers gilt with large centre- and corner gilt cartouches, fleurons at corners, richly floral gilt spine with gilt animal ornaments (spine rebacked preserving original spine), gilt edges. A finely coloured set of the complete 'Icones Animalium', which comprises the complete series of woodcuts from Gesner's 'Historia Animalium' (1551-1558), along with some that appear in this edition for the first time. This was the greatest zoological encyclopedia of the sixteenth century and the greatest pictorial assembly of zoological illustration of its time. The 'Icones' utilizes the entire assembly of woodcuts, but largely eliminates the text, apart from the nomenclature.I. The 'Historia animalium de avium' woodcuts are the second important suite of ornithological iconography, being roughly contemporary with those of Belon published the same year. They are the precursors of many of Aldrovandi's illustrations, many of which were copied from Gesner.II. The 'Historia animalium de quadrupedium viviparis' was the first of Gesner's great encyclopedias of the animal kingdom, and the first systematic treatise on zoology of the Renaissance. The illustrations are the first original zoological illustrations and the first naturalistic representations of animals to be published. As such they herald the birth of zoological book illustration. They are the archetypes of much subsequent animal illustrations, even into the eighteenth century.III. The 'Historia animalium de piscium & aquatilium' was Gesner's history of fish and aquatic animals. The woodcuts form the fourth great series of ichthyological illustrations, after Belon (1551), Rondelet (1554) and Salviani (1554), but are also the first general series of marine illustrations (including conchology), not confined to fish.All of the woodcuts in outstanding contemporary publisher's colouring, executed by a professional book illuminator; the palate is rich and varied, using a lot of body colour. Gesner in his preface states that a number of copies with hand-coloured woodcuts were issued 'for customers who are not deterred by the higher price'. Their number was very small indeed, and they scarcely ever appear on the market. This is in a very attractive contemporary richly gilt decorated binding, with gilt edges, and must have been commissioned by a wealthy customer. The 'Icones Animalium' is the most suitable edition of Gesner's works to be coloured as the woodcuts dominate the pages, making this work particularly attractive. The woodcuts were cut after paintings by Lukas Schan, some of which survive as part of the Felix Patter collection in the Basle University Library. This suite of woodcuts contains the first naturalistic representations of the animal kingdom, and effectively heralds the birth of zoological book illustration. They are the archetypes of much subsequent animal illustrations, even into the eighteenth century.The 'Icones Avium' and 'Icones Animalium Quadrupedum' are in the second edition, the last volume on fishes in the first edition. 'The title pages . bear subtitles in Italian, French and German, probably because they were aimed at a larger market and at people who could no longer read Latin. These are the only title pages of Gesner's original works with text in vernacular languages. The illustrations themselves also carry captions in all four languages' (Wellisch, Conrad Gessner.

      Strasbourg, J. Rihel 1560. - Fol. (20) Bll., (davon 1 weiß), 413 röm pag. Bll., (7) Bll. Mit über 500 Pflanzenholz-schnitten (davon die meisten in altem Kolorit, einige mit Figuren und Tieren), einem Portraitholzschnitt in architektonischem Rahmen und einem Wappenholzschnitt, beide ebenfalls koloriert. Blindgepr. Schweinsleder d. Zt. (gebräunt, fleckig, mit modernem Leder unterlegt, mit Fehlstellen [v.a. Ecken, Kanten, Kopf und Fuß des Rückens, im unteren Teil des RD]) über Holzdeckeln, datiert 1556?). Fünfte illustrierte Ausgabe (EA ohne Holzschn.: 1539; erste illustr.: 1546). Hieronymus Bock, 1498 in Heidesheim / Odenwald gebo-ren, war Theologe und Botaniker. Er gilt als der volkstümlichste unter den Pflanzenbuch-Autoren des 16. Jahrhunderts. „Als begeisterter Naturfreund durch-streifte er die Wälder seiner Heimat und schilderte die dort gefundenen Pflanzen." (Heilmann). So wenig Verbreitung die erste, unillustrierte Ausgabe fand, so erfolgreich wurden die sich anschließenden, von dem Straßburger Grafiker David Kandel (um 1520 – um 1590) illustrierten. Die verschiedenen Milieubilder gegen Ende des Buchs trugen sicherlich zu dem Erfolg bei. Nach Bocks Tod 1554 erschienen noch zahlreiche Auflagen, ab den 1570er Jahren erweitert. Der Einband ist mit mehreren Rollen verziert: außen ein Rolle mit Palmettenfries, dann folgt eine mit Musen (Thalia mit Saiteninstrument – Caliope mit Schreibtafel – Terpsich[ore] mit Lyra, Euterpe mit Flöte und Datierung 1556[?]). Nach innen schließt sich eine schmalere Rolle mit biblischen Figuren an, und das innere rechteckige Feld ist wieder mit Palmettenfriesrollen besetzt. Einem konkreten Binder lässt sich der Einband nicht zuweisen. Neue Vorsätze und Spiegel. Vorderer Spiegel und Titel mit vier Besitzerstempeln, davon 3 ausgestrichen.

Cooper was an English controversialist bishop and noted author of Thesaurus Linguae Romane et Britannicae. Cooper's chronicle represents a continuation of Thomas Lanquet's work (Lanquet had died in 1545 with the work unfinished) to the reign Elizabeth I. Cooper's "portion is about thrice as much as Lanquet's, and the whole was published in 1549." -DNB. Cooper was further spurred by his strident rejection of Robert Crowley's updates printed in 1559. Cooper printed this edition of his chronicle in 1560 after bringing the history to Queen Elizabeth I's reign.

      [Geneva]: Oliua Roberti Stephani, 1560. Folio (35.8 cm; 14.125"). [16], 455, [3], 249, [6] pp. Calvin's harmony with commentary for the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke as well as his commentary on the book of John, here in the second edition following the first of 1555.    Notably, while championing the reading of the Scriptures in the vernacular, Calvin chose to present his notes on and explanations of various books of the Bible in the language of scholars, Latin — clearly expecting the mass of believers to rely on the intermediation of the clergy to assist them. Here the commentary is printed in roman type surrounding numbered verses of the gospels printed in italic, with passages from Matthew, Mark, and Luke printed side by side for easy comparison.    Started by Robert Estienne before his death in 1559, this printing, as noted by Renouard, must have been finished by his son Henri or other workers at the press. A later edition was printed in 1563 by Michel Blanchier in Geneva.    Provenance: From the Pacific School of Religion (properly released).         Renouard, Estienne, p. 90–1, no. 2; Adams C348; Index Aurel. *129.970.

        Notamento di alcuni passi ricavati dalle Memorie del Duca di Sulli, primo ministro del Re Enrico IV. detto il Grande.

      8. 170 pages.Hardcover / Decorative 19th century binding with gilt lettering on spine. 18th century, extensive manuscript - excerpt of Sully's memoirs. Maximilien de Béthune, first Duke of Sully (13 December 1560 22 December 1641) was the doughty soldier, French minister, staunch Huguenot and faithful right-hand man who assisted Henry IV of France in the rule of France. Sully was not popular. He was hated by most Roman Catholics because he was a Protestant, by most Protestants because he was faithful to the king, and by all because he was a favorite, and was seen as selfish, obstinate and rude. He amassed a large personal fortune, and his jealousy of all other ministers and favorites was extravagant. Nevertheless he was an excellent man of business, inexorable in punishing malversation and dishonesty on the part of others, and opposed to the ruinous court expenditure which was the bane of almost all European monarchies in his day. He was gifted with executive ability, with confidence and resolution, with fondness for work, and above all with deep devotion to his master. He was implicitly trusted by Henry IV and proved himself the most able assistant of the king in dispelling the chaos into which the religious and civil wars had plunged France. To Sully, next to Henry IV, belongs the credit for the happy transformation in France between 1598 and 1610, by which agriculture and commerce were benefited and foreign peace and internal order were reestablished.
