        Dedication manuscript for Emperor Ferdinand I, written by the provost of a Landsknecht army who fought against the Turkish troops of Sultan Soliman II between 1532 and 1552.

      [No place, 1560]. - Folio (280 x 390 mm). German ms. on paper. German chancery cursive in brown ink with calligraphic chapter headings and initials. 28 lines, written space ruled in ink. 12 ff., 1 blank f., 83 ff., 2 blank ff. (thus complete with 190 written pages). Contemp. limp vellum with giltstamped cover borders and diagonal cross using the same roll-tools. Spine divided into six compartments by same tools and decorated with floral stamps. All edges goffered. The as yet unidentified writer of this manuscript had until 1552 served on the staff of Maurice, Elector of Saxony, and thus was one of the highest-ranking commanders in the Imperial Landsknecht army led by the Elector. In the office of a "oberster provossen Leutnant" (head lieutenant provost), his duty had been to enforce military order among the mercenary regiment: he investigated and arrested lawbreakers; in trials he acted as prosecutor, and afterwards he executed the punishment. After the end of the campaign, the provost would no longer be protected by military law, for which reason he would usually leave the regiment early so as to escape acts of revenge by the soldiers. After more than 20 years of Imperial army service, our provost was thus without occupation or pay, and so in 1560 directly applied to the Emperor in the present, strongly autobiographical manuscript, requesting (in the 146th and final chapter) that he graciously bestow on him a benefice or sinecure ("aus lauterer genaden mit ainer genetten Pfründt oder schlechten Ofidicio oder Beneficij"). Obviously aware of the difficulties of his appeal, the author states in the preface that even if granted a personal hearing, he would hardly be permitted to present his case in such detail ("gibt ainem nit sovil audienz, biß Er sein wichtige sachen khann genuegsamblich fürbringe"), which is why he has decided on the written form. He is not a learned man, nor does he have an eloquent scholar ("ain doctor der wolreden khann") at his disposal to help him with his phrasing, but even a simple man has memory and brains enough to thus lay down his opinions. His extensive descriptions of personal involvement in important, historically documented battles against the Turks permit a precise dating of the manuscript. The writer participated in the campaign against the Raab fortress ("ungeverlich vor 8 Jahren mein gnediger Herr Herzog Moritz Curfürst [.] biß für Rab Innß Landt zue Hungern ist gezogen") and fought against the Turks at Steinfeld as early as 1532 ("bin auch dabey gewesen, wie man dazumal ein streifenden Haufen mit Türggen an der Schwarzach geschlagen hat [.] da Herr Sewastian Schertlin Obristen Leitnanbt war"). This Imperial mercenary probably remained in the regiment of the famous Landsknecht commander Kaspar Schertlin von Burtenbach (1496-1577), victor of the battle at Steinfeld and a participant in the 1527 Sack of Rome, until the mid-1540s. He also remarks on the desolate condition of the contemporary military, straightforwardly addressing the issues of corruption among the upper echelons ("wie die falschen blinden Namen C. May. so grossmechtigen schaden bringen"), poor pay ("wie die Armen Kriegsleuth über vortailt und genediget werden mit der schlechten Müntz"), and grievances regarding enlistment, food, and clothing, and advances suggestions on how to improve matters ("so man auf allen Musterungen mieglichen Vleiß fürwendt guette kriegsleuth zue bekommen"). - The manuscript begins with the index ("Register diser Oration oder Solticitation"); the counter-leaf of the first index page is glued to the vellum cover, forming the front pastedown. The index is immediately followed by the preface to the Emperor, the "Allerdurchleuchtigste Großmechtigste unnd unyberwindlichsste Erwelte Romischer Kayser aller genedigster Herr", which in turn is followed by the 146 chapters of the petition. Both the fact that the manuscript remained unsigned and also its provenance suggest that the author ultimately lacked the courage to submit to Fe

Contemporary decorative calf, with medallion role with Caesar head, cherubs and floral decorations, embossed with initials ÒF.Z.Ó and Ò1560Ó. on front cover.

Contemporary owner signature to inside front board and tp at bottom, ÒFrederichi Zormy?Ó, notes to inside of back board also. Some underlining, few leaves with light outer margin damp stains, few leaves with minor corner wear, no affect. Illustrations: Illustrated initials. Peucer (1525-1602) was a doctor and professor of medicine at Wittenberg. He married a daughter of Melancthon and edited his works. ".being for ten years in close imprisonment, on account of his opinions, he wrote his thoughts on the margins of old books which they gave him for amusement, making his ink of burnt crusts of bread infused in wine." [- Chalmers vxxiv, 426-7]. "The work of Caspar Peucer on various kinds of divination was first printed in Wittenberg in 1553.it seems to have been the most influential of his numerous writings which were concerned with the varied fields of medicine, astronomy, mathematics, natural history, and psychology. After discussing divination in general, he turns to oracles and theomancy, then to magic -- which he correctly implies is a variety of divination, whereas the opposite is true -- then to divination from entrails, to augury and aruspicina, to lot-casting under which he puts geomancy and divining from names and numbers, and to dreams and their interpretation. Next he considers medical prognostications, meteorology and weather prediction, physiognomy and chiromancy, astrology, and last prodigies and portents." [Thorndike] Citations: VD16 P:1973.

        LO QUE RESULTA DE LA INFORMACION QUE PARA EL ENTRETANTO SE EMBIA A V. M. SOBRE LOS CABOS DE LAS IMPUTACIONES QUE AY SE DIERON A DON HERNANDO DE GONZAGA.]

      S.l.n.a. (c. 1560 - ). 33 cm. Parcialmente paginado, 44 h., a doble cara. * El documento, dirigido al monarca, se estructura en cinco relaciones y una conclusión sobre el desempeño del cargo y los 'negocios' de don Hernando de Gonzaga. Se trata, en realidad, de Ferrante I Gonzaga (1507-1557), condotiero italiano miembro de la casa de Gonzaga que, de joven, había sido enviado a la corte española como paje del futuro emperador Carlos V. En 1527 fue nombrado comandante en jefe del ejército imperial en Italia. Entre otros, sirvió al rey como virrey de Sicilia (1535-1546) y fue nombrado gobernador del ducado de Milán en 1546, cargo que ocuparía entre 1546 y 1554. Es precisamente de esta última época de la que se ocupan las presentes páginas. Y es que Gonzaga fue procesado por malversación de fondos y corrupción, unas acusaciones de las que finalmente fue absuelto y cuya investigación son el objeto principal del documento que ofrecemos. Así, en las cinco relaciones, el informante -anónimo- que escribe trata sobre la corrupción vinculada a la venta de oficios, en el que se identifican personas que contactaban con otras cercanas a Hernando de Gonzaga y, a cambio de sumas diversas, conseguían cargos de cierta importancia. También el cobro de deudas estaba sometido a prácticas irregulares, y la comunidad de Milán parece que pagó sumas exorbitantes a Gonzaga que no siempre estaban justificadas. Las relaciones recogen toda suerte de actuaciones poco honorables o por lo menos discutibles del gobernador (en una ocasión, el estado de Milán le entregó más de 23.000 escudos para obsequiar al monarca español, de los cuales él dio sólo 20.000 al príncipe) y buscan pruebas, testigos y explicaciones. Se afirma por ejemplo que 17 días antes del saqueo de Vercelli se avisó del tratado a don Hernando y, no obstante el aviso, la ciudad fue saqueada igualmente. Asimismo, se analizan varias donaciones realizadas a la princesa de Molfeta, Isabella di Capuaque era en realidad su esposa, y que realizó algunos indultos discutibles. En un momento dado, Ferrante Gonzaga ocupó Piacenza en nombre de Carlos I de España y son también diversas las actuaciones 'dudosas' que lo ligan a esta ciudad. Básicamente la documentación analiza los hechos acaecidos entre 1550 y 1554. política, corrupción, ducado de Milán, siglo XVI, carlos I, Ferrante de Gonzaga

        Il Petrarcha Con l'espositione d'Alessandro Vellutello

      In Vinegia (Venise): Apresso Gabriel Giolito, 1560. Fine. Apresso Gabriel Giolito, In Vinegia (Venise) 1560, Pet. in-4 (16x23cm), (12f.) 216ff., relié. - New edition. The original edition containing comments Vellutello appeared in 1525. The first edition in 1540 Giolito date, it will be reprinted, including in 1547. The figure includes a title frontispiece with two caryatids and two cherubs holding the title and a rich Renaissance decoration, a curious portrait of Laura and Petrarch in a vase being reflected one another, a map of Vaucluse, 6 as thumbnails for Triomphi and several beautiful historiated initials, all in wood. This edition contains the Sonetti Anzoni and C, and Triomphi. Remarkable typography and layout (typical Venetian editions of that time), with the poem and commentary in italics in Roman characters being distributed around, and ending in cul-de-lamp in fine. Printer's mark in fine, with editorial guidance in the colophon. Title doubled and a brown spot one cm in low margin, p. 32 and 33, otherwise freshness of the paper, but some very light foxing on first pages, including the map of Vaucluse. Good copy. Half vellum binding to Italian corner of the late eighteenth or early nineteenth. Smooth back. As an exhibit in red morocco with minor losses in the margin. Friction on the dishes. Small gaps in borders papers. Commentary Vellutello had more success than any other comments sixteenth, notably Petro Bembo, published with the Aldine edition of 1519, which he is critical; it knew no less than 26 reprints. His full commentary will seek Latin sources poems by Petrarch and its borrowings Provencal poets, and the Bible. His approach is entirely new, and giving a new order of poems he justifies by his three short introductions (Trattato the Ordine of 'sonetti e canzoni mutato, Vita e costumi del poeta, Origin madonna di Laura con la di discrizione Valclusa e del luogo ove it poeta principio di lei is innamorò) seeking to recreate the identity and history of Laura and Petrarch. The first French translation of these comments will be born in 1555 and did much to the spread of Petrarchism, which we know she had a major role in French poetry. Vellutello also later make comments Dante (1544). Its exclusion from the intellectual milieu of the time due to the fact of his criticism Bembo and the fact that he was not a professional. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition. L'édition originale contenant les commentaires de Vellutello a paru en 1525. Marque de l'imprimeur au centre du titre-frontispice et au verso du dernier feuillet. La première édition chez Giolito date de 1540, elle sera réimprimée, notamment en 1547. L'illustration comprend un titre-frontispice avec deux cariatides et deux angelots tenant le titre et un riche décor Renaissance, un curieux portrait de Laure et Petrarque dans un vase se mirant l'un l'autre, une carte du Vaucluse, 6 vignettes de titre pour les Triomphi, et plusieurs belles lettrines historiés, l'ensemble sur bois. Cette édition contient les Sonetti et Canzoni, et les Triomphi. Remarquable typographie et mise en page (typique des éditions vénitiennes de cette époque), avec le poème en italique et le commentaire en caractères romains se distribuant autour, et finissant en cul-de-lampe in fine. Marque de l'imprimeur in fine, avec indications éditoriales dans le colophon. Reliure en demi vélin à coin italienne de la fin du XVIIIe, ou du début du XIXe. Dos lisse. Pièce de titre en maroquin rouge avec petits manques en marge. Frottements sur les plats. Petits manques de papiers en bordures. Titre doublé en marge sur 1cm, et une tache brune d'un cm en marge basse, p. 32 et 33, sinon belle fraîcheur du papier, mais quelques rousseurs très pâles sur les premiers feuillets, notamment la carte du Vaucluse. Bon exemplaire. Le commentaire de Vellutello eut davantage de succès que tous les autres commentaires du XVIe, notamment celui de Petro Bembo, paru avec l'édition aldine de 1519, dont il fait la critique ; celui-ci ne connut pas moins de 26 réimpressions. Ses commentaires fouillés vont rechercher les sources latines des poèmes de Pétrarque ainsi que ses emprunts aux poètes provençaux, et à la Bible. Son approche est entièrement nouvelle, et en conférant un nouvel ordre des poésies qu'il justifie par ses 3 courtes introductions (Trattato de l'ordine de' sonetti e canzoni mutato, Vita e costumi del poeta, Origine di madonna Laura con la discrizione di Valclusa e del luogo ove il poeta di lei a principio s'innamorò) il cherche à recréer l'identité et l'histoire de Laure et Petrarque. La première traduction française de ces commentaires verra le jour en 1555 et fit beaucoup pour la diffusion du pétrarquisme, dont on sait qu'elle eut un rôle majeur sur la poésie française. Vellutello fera également plus tard les commentaires de Dante (en 1544). Son exclusion du milieu intellectuel de l'époque provient du fait de sa critique envers Bembo et du fait qu'il n'était pas un professionnel.

        In primum Euclidis elementorum librum commentariorum ad universam mathematicam disciplinam principium eruditionis tradentium libri IV.

      Padua, Grazioso Percacino, 1560. - Folio (215 x 300 mm). (16), 272, (24) pp. With woodcut device on t. p. (Minerva and Mercury holding the wing tips of a rising phoenix), woodcut portrait on reverse, and printer's device on final leaf, as well as numerous mathematical diagrams in the text. Contemp. Italian limp vellum with ms. spine title. First Latin edition of one of the major works by Proclus Lycaeus (412-485), founder and head of the neo-Platonic school of Athens: a commentary on the first book of Euclid's "Elements of Geometry", the "oldest mathematical textbook in the world still in common use today" (PMM). Includes the text of the theorems, set within ornamental woodcut framings, and the geometrical diagrams. The editor and translator Francesco Barozzi (1537-1604) taught at the University of Padua. He was later charged with sorcery (in particular, he was said to have caused a torrential rainstorm over his native Crete) and condemned by the Inquisition in 1587. "Barocius' edition of Proclus' 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. The translation, published in 1560, was completed by Barocius at the age of twenty-two" (DSB). His portrait on the reverse of the title page is cut within a magnificent border. - Old ms. ownership on flyleaf obliterated (probably in the early 19th century); old ownership stamp over title woodcut erased, replaced by a different coat of arms in ink, very likely that of the Italian comital family Antico (insignificant bleeding to reverse). Occasional slight waterstaining, still an exceptionally appealing, clean copy. Edit 16, CNCE 33726. Adams P 2138. BM-STC Italian 540. Mortimer 403. Honeyman 2543. DSB I, 468. Brunet IV, 895.

        BOKE OF SURVEYING and Improuementes Newly Corrected and Amended, Very Necessarye For All Men

      London by Thomas Marshe [circa 1560] - VERY RARE, an early reissue, date of publication estimated by STC. The first edition was printed by Pynson in 1523. Engraved titlepage with acorn device. 8vo, (136 by 91mm), full blind paneled calf over wooden boards in period style, the spine with raised bands between compartments framed in blind. A4, B-H7, lacking final blank leaf H8 and text leaves G8 and H1. VERY RARE, OCLC SHOWS COPIES AT THE HUNTINGTON, BRITISH LIBRARY AND CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY ONLY. This edition has Berthelet's verses and the prologue, but it does not name Fitzherbert as the author. From The Boke of Surveying and Improvements, may be learned a great deal about the economy of the feudal system at the time of its decline. Whether the judge, Sir Anthony Fitzherbert, or his elder brother John was the author of the two tracts is a debate that has been going on for centuries, but in either case the value of these important sources for English agrarian history remains unaffected. Professor Skeat, in a positive way, championed the claims of Sir Anthony, and was met by the Rev. Reginald Fitzherbert in an article which sets forth at some length the arguments and probabilities in favor of the elder brother. The catalogue of the British Museum apparently inclines to the latter's side, while J. M. Rigg, in the Dictionary of National Biography, warmly espouses the cause of Sir Anthony.

        PANOPLIA EVANGELICA, SIVE, DE VERBO DEI EVANGELICO LIBRI QUINQUE

      Coloniae Agrippinae; Coloniae: Maternus Cholinus; Arnodi Birchmanni, 1560. contemporary full leather over boards, rolled designs in blind. small folio. contemporary full leather over boards, rolled designs in blind. xxxxviii, 527, (1), 36, (xiii), 144 pages ; xii, 382 pages. BOUND TOGETHER WITH LOCI COMMUNES THEOLOGICI PRO ECCLESIA CATHOLICA. This volume contains two important books written by a well-respected and well-known Catholic clergymen during the Reformation. Additionally, they are both first printings. (Adams 717 & 718 for Panoplia and Adams 2221 for Loci ) We can find no other instances where the two are bound in one. There are very few public holdings of either title in the first edition (for example, ten for Panoplia and three for Loci per OCLC) and only a few more in the later printings. Text in Latin. Panoplia is, itself, in two parts - both of which are present here and have separate title pages. It has the folding table, which is so often missing as it was never bound-in. The author, Lindanus, was a staunch defender of the faith, bishop of Ruremonde, and later of Ghent. Phillip II helped him found the Royal Seminary at Louvain for the education of young clerics. Loci Communes, by general definition, are the common topics of discussion in theology. During the Reformation, a number of writers on both sides used the loci method to argue their case. Konrad Kling (Conrado Clingio) was one of the Catholic writers of Loci, which bolstered the Catholic stronghold. Cling or Kling, was a Franciscan monk in Germany and preached at Erfurt. He was remarked as being, "the only priest who kept up the religious services of his Church at a time when the Romish churches were deserted and the people eagerly listened to evangelical truth, as preached by the Reformers and either disciples." (Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature). Kling died in 1566. The binding is an attractive example of the German rolled style and is certainly contemporary with the text. It had clasps at one time as evidenced by nail marks, staining and a small loss of leather on the bottom board. The edges are soiled, as are the first and last few pages. These are also quite worn at the corners with some small paper loss. There are some small stains and very minor smudges throughout the text. Altogether, an attractive volume with hard-to-find texts.

        Scenographiae, sive Perspectivae

      1560. VREDEMAN DE VRIES, Hans. Scenographiae, sive Perspectivae (ut Aedificia, hoc modo ad opticam excitata, Pictorum vulgus vocat) pulcherrimae viginti selectissimarum fabricarum, à pictore Ioanne Vreedmanno Frisio ingeniosissimè excogitatae & designatae: & à Hieronymo Cock in gratiam pictorum aliorumque huiusmodi rebus se oblectantium his venustissimis typis in lucem aeditae... Letterpress title-page. Illustrated with engraved dedication and 20 full-page etched plates after drawings by Vredeman de Vries. Oblong folio, 255 x 360 mm, bound in nineteenth-century marbled boards. Antwerp: Hieronymus Cock, 1560. First Edition. This model book for artists demonstrates perspective through a series of etched views of imaginary cityscapes, colonnades, fountains, gardens, interiors, and churches after drawings by the celebrated Dutch architect and draughtsman Hans Vredeman de Vries (ca. 1527-1604). The series of 20 views were etched by Joannes and Lucas Van Doetecum and published by the venerable Hieronymus Cock (1518-1570) at his Au Quatre Vens publishing house in Antwerp. This title represents the first of series of perspectival views by Vredeman de Vries which "...transcend the immediately craft-oriented design tradition: what we find here is an overview of a new visual syntax worked out in an urban context" (Peter Fuhring, Hieronymus Cock: The Renaissance in Print, p. 279). The empty town plazas and city squares, often populated with nothing more than a flock of birds in the distant sky, would have stoked the imagination of young architects, painters, and designers eager to apply the new artistic innovations of Renaissance Italy. Here, Vredeman de Vries applies a low vanishing point to demonstrate central and off-center perspective creating a dramatic viewing experience. Atmospheric perspective is also applied, as distant buildings and other details are etched with a lighter hand thus appearing further away. This effect is achieved by the skilled etching of the Van Doetecum brothers. One detail of note is the inclusion of Cock's workshop on the corner of the first view, identifiable by a sign reading "iiii vens" hung below four putti blowing in the four cardinal directions. Mr. Cock stands in the doorway with his wife Volcxken Diericx behind the counter within - a subtle detail that indicates the importance of Cock's workshop to the artists with whom he worked and his role in disseminating their work. Following the publication of the Scenographiae in 1560, Cock published a series of smaller architectural views by Vredeman de Vries in 1562, resulting in the present work being known as the "The Large Perspective Book." Both series are rare, as with most model books they would be lost to heavy use (they are absent from both Millard and Fowler). The watermark on the plates, a gloved hand with a five petaled flower and the number three below, most resembles that of Briquet 11381, from paper made on or before 1552. Some marginal waterstaining, particularly to the upper right hand corner of most leaves, a few marginal tears professionally repaired, skillfully rebacked. Some blue paint can be found lightly splattered on a few plates indicating the book has clearly been used for its very purpose. Overall it remains in exceptional condition with very nice impressions.

      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 ...?

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.

Rahmenaufbau durch Rollen- und Stempelprägungen und je 2 Mittelstücken (Luther und Calvin), die Schließen fehlen.. VD16 L 2417. - Nissen, BBI 1227. - Zweite dt. Ausgabe, hier durchgehend altkoloriert. - Die erste lateinische Ausgabe ("Naturalis historiae opus novum...") erschien in 2 Teilen 1551-1555 ebenso bei Egenolff, dem Schwiegervater von Adam Lonicer. - Vorliegendes berühmtes volkstümliches Heilpflanzenbuch des Botanikers und Frankfurter Stadtphysikus Adam Lonitzer (1528-86) erschien erstmals 1557 in deutscher Sprache. - "Im 'Kreuterbuch' werden - nach einer Einleitung über die Technik der Destillation und über die Anlage von Gärten und Baumpflanzungen - nicht nur Bäume, Stauden und Kräuter behandelt, sondern auch Tiere (Insekten, Mollusken, Wirbeltiere) sowie Erze, Edelsteine und Metalle. Das Werk stellt eine Neubearbeitung des 'Kreuterbuchs' (1546) von L.s Amtsvorgänger E. Rößlin dar, das seinerseits auf dem 'Hortus sanitatis' oder 'Gart(en) der Gesundheit' (1485...) von Johs. Cuba basiert. Die Holzschnitte sind vor allem aus Rößlins Werk entnommen, viele auch aus dem 'Kreutterbuch' (ill. erst ab 1546) von Hieronymus Bock kopiert. Manche Bilder sind mit allegorischem Beiwerk versehen; einige, vor allem solche von Tieren (z. B. Einhorn, Drachen, Vogel Greif, Entenmuschelbaum), sind reine Phantasiegebilde, die sogar bis in die letzte Ausgabe (1783) beibehalten worden sind." (siehe NDB 15, S. 147). "Die Destilliergefäße stammen aus dem Kleyn Distillierrbuch [Frankfurt: Egenolph um 1552]" (Nissen). "Lonicerus brachte in seinen weitverbreiteten Kräuterbüchern eine selten übersichtliche Abhandlung über die Destillationsmethoden seiner Zeit. Sie ist übersichtlich und in ihren Holzschnitten sehr gut veranschaulicht." (Heilmann, Kräuterbücher S. 233). Im Kräuterbuch Lonitzers findet sich unter anderem die erste Darstellung von Claviceps-Sclerotien (Mutterkorn), außerdem sind die größeren Eingangsholzschnitte bemerkenswert, die jeweils eine typische Szenerie des entsprechenden Kapitels zeigen (Brennerei, Tierzucht, Bergbau, Gartenbau, Kräutergarten u.a.). - Christian Egenolff (1502-1555) gilt als einer der berühmtesten Drucker Frankfurts, ab 1524 als Schriftgießer beim Drucker Wolfgang Köpfel in Straßburg tätig, eröffnete er 1528 eine eigene Druckerei in Straßburg, die er jedoch 1530 nach Frankfurt überführte. "Mit ihm begann der ununterbrochene Buchdruck in dieser Stadt. [...] Durch die Übernahme eines Teiles des Holzschnittwerkes der Steinerschen Offizin in Augsburg hat er zahlreiche bemerkenswerte Holzschnitte des Petrarca-Meisters, H. L. Schäufeleins und Hans Burgkmairs, in seinen Besitz gebracht, die zusammen mit Beiträgen ansässiger Künstler wie Hans Sebald Beham, Konrad Faber und anderen seine prächtigen Holzschnitteditionen zieren." (siehe NDB 4, S. 325f). Egenolffs Druckermarke war ein Altar mit einem brennenden Herzen. 1554 heiratete seine Tochter Magdalena Adam Lonicer. - Vorliegende zweite, reich illustrierte dt. Ausgabe im schönen Handkolorit der Zeit, ist im Handel sehr selten anzutreffen. - Nur einige Lagen gebräunt oder mit leichtem Wasserrand im oberen Bereich, wenige Blätter an kleiner Stelle im weißen Rand alt hinterlegt. Titelblatt an den Rändern etwas fingerfleckig, am unteren weißen Rand alt hinterlegt (kein Textverlust). Blatt XII mit unauffällig, alt geklebten Einriß, durch leichten Versatz der Blatteile sehr geringer Buchstabenverlust. Die meisten Blätter jedoch in guter, meist sehr guter Erhaltung. - Angebunden: Fries, Lorenz: Spiegel der Artzney, vorzeytten zunutz unnd trost den Leyen gemacht..., yetzundt durch den selbigen Laurentium widerumb gebessert, unnd in seinen ersten glantz gestelt. Hiemit sollen widerrüfft und falsch declariert sein, alle Exemplaria diß büchs, so vor disem truck, Anno M.D.xxij.außgangen seind... Mit großer figürl. Holzschnitt-Titel-Bordüre. Strassburg, Balthasar Beck 1546. 6 nn. Bll., CXLVIII Bll. - VD 16, F 2877. - Dritte Ausgabe in der Bearbeitung von Otto Brunfels. - Die ersten drei Ausgaben erschienen ab 1518 in Straßburg bei Johannes Grüninger. 1529 ließ der Strassburger Verleger Balthasar Beck den "Spiegel" durch Otto Brunfels bearbeiten, von deren Fassung drei Ausgaben gedruckt wurden (1529, 1532 und vorliegende Ausgabe). Karl Sudhoff nennt in der ADB diese Fassung die "beste Ausgabe" des Spiegels. Brunfels "gehört zu den Vätern der Botanik in Deutschland" (ADB 3, S. 441f). - Hauptwerk des Arztes und Astrologen Lorenz Fries (um 1490-1531/32?): "Dies sein größtes und bedeutendstes Werk, den 'gemeinen armen Kranken' zugeeignet, das ihm einen dauernden Ehrenplatz in der volksthümlichen medicinischen Litteratur errungen hat, sollte die gesammte innere Medicin seiner Tage zur Kenntniß weiter Kreise bringen, einen sachverständigen Vermittler zwischen Arzt und Publicum bilden" (siehe ADB 49, S. 770ff). - Blätter in guter, meist sehr guter Erhaltung. - Einband etwas berieben und angestaubt. Holzdecken durch Abrieb des Pergamentbezugs gering an den Ecken und etwas an der unteren Außenkante des Vorderdeckels freiliegend. Die Schließen fehlen. Im Gesamteindruck jedoch noch gut erhaltener Einband. - Schöner Pergamenteinband mit zwei der bedeutendsten Klassiker der volkstümlichen Heilkunde in frühen Ausgaben des 16. Jhs. - - We accept all main credit cards. - Wir akzeptieren Kreditkarten. - *** 83 Jahre Antiquariat Arno Adler (1932-2015) ***

        Comedie. Il Ragazzo. Il Marito. Il Capitano. La Fabritia. Il Ruffiano.

      In Vinegia, appresso Gabriel Giolito de? Ferrari, 1560. In 12mo (cm. 13,2); pergamena rigida del Settecento; cc. 60; cc. 24; cc. 36; cc. 65 + 1 nn.; cc. 48. Ogni commedia forma un volumetto con frontespizio e numerazione speciale eccetto ?il Ragazzo?, che ha il frontespizio e la dedicatoria generale. Il Dolce, come aveva fatto per le tragedie, volle anche riunire in un volume le sue Comedie, alle quali tolte le dedicatorie delle edizioni antecedenti, ne antepose una generale al S. Prospero Podacataro del 10 Marzo 1560. Le Commedie del Dolce hanno i pregi e i difetti dei suoi contemporanei, alle quali in tutto somigliano, per merito andando a pari colle principali, e per fatto della licenza essendo da paragonare colle più ardite. Piccolo volume assai ricercato e desiderato dagli amatori. Bongi, pp. 94 / 95. Axs

      Cologne, Johann Birckmann 1560 - in-folio, [6] [sur 20] ff. n. ch. (titre avec vignette de libraire, dédicace, table des chapitres), 240 ff., texte sur deux colonnes, signatures **, puis A-Z, puis Aa-Rr, avec un tableau dépliant (f. 113, arbre de consanguinité), il manque le Prologue dans les pièces liminaires, demi-veau prune, dos lisse irbé de filets et guirlandes dorés, ainsi que de larges fleurons à froid, pièce de titre noire, tranches marbrées (rel. du XIXe siècle). Dos passé, un mors supérieur fendillé. Une des éditions du Collectorium canonum ou Decretum de Burchard de Worms (965-1025), le plus important recueil canonique avant celui de Gratien, livré pour la première fois à l'impression en 1548 à la même adresse de Cologne. Comme l'on sait, la collection exerça une influence considérable, elle n'a cependant plus eu aucune valeur pratique après Gratien, et surtout après la formation du Corpus iuris canonici, mais garde en somme valeur de source pour l'élaboration du ius vetus. Pour la collation, voir l'exemplaire de la Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève (cote FOL E 229 INV 21 RES). Relié à la suite : HEROLD (Basilius Johann) : Originum ac Germanicarum antiquitatum libri, leges videlicet, Salicae, Ripuariae, Allemanorum, Boioariorum, Saxonum, Vestphalorum, Angliorum, Vuerinorum, Thuringorum, Frisionum, Burgundionum, Langobardorum, Francorum, Theutonum (.). Bâle, Heinrich Peter, s.d. [septembre 1557], [10] ff. n. ch. (titre, dédicace à l'Electeur de Trèves, poésies liminaires, index), 348 pp. Très rare et important : l'ouvrage offrait pour la première fois un choix de la plupart des "lois barbares" de l'Occident germanique, alors sous le régime de la personnalité juridique, collationné d'après des manuscrits généralement disparus. Depuis, d'autres collections ont réuni ces codes, mais la compilation du laborieux érudit et typographe Herold (1514-1567) se consulte toujours avec intérêt, spécialement pour la Lex Frisionum dont il n'existe plus aucun manuscrit et qu'il est donc le seul à produire d'après un exemplaire de la Bibliothèque dispersée de Fulda.

        Rudimentorum Cosmographicorum ? Libri III. Cum tabulis Geographicis elegantiss?

      J. Richard, Antwerp 1560 - Slim duodecimo, unpaginated (24 leaves in total including the title page); single plate depicting a celestial sphere followed by three single-page and twelve double-page woodcut maps; three pages of early manuscript notes on blanks at end (on Asia, Africa, and Europe); preliminaries a little thumbed, touch of marginal worming affects title-page and first three leaves, nonetheless a very good copy in later parchment covered boards with yapp edges. With an extraordinary map of unknown Africa. Rare sixteenth-century publication of this important and standard work of Renaissance geography, notable for its early woodcut world map as well as its charming woodcut maps of regions in Europe, Africa and Asia. Some of the unvisited parts of the interior of Africa and Asia are delightfully identified on the maps as being inhabited by cannibals, cave dwellers, or eaters of horses, even eaters of elephants. Honter was a German theologian in Transylvania. His pocket geography was written as verse, in Latin hexameters, and first appeared with only two maps (Cracow 1530), one of them a rather simple world map. In this version, containing altogether fifteen maps of different regions, the world map follows the pattern of Honter's re-made version of 1542, with much more detail - though he definitely fudges the Oceanic region, giving mere hints of continental land beyond Java. Another more schematic world map is similarly uncertain about the southern regions; both world maps show America and there is also mention of America in the text. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
