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.

        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

        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]

        Iconologia, of uytbeeldingen des verstands: ... Om uyt te drucken, en te vinden, 't begrip van alle sinnebeelden, invallen, devijsen of sinteykenen. ...Amsterdam, Dirck Pietsz. 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.

        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] p. Leaf C4, a blank, lacking. Octavo (5-1/4" x 3-3/4"). Attractive late-nineteenth century maroon polished calf, blind frames to boards, raised bands and gilt titles to spine, endpapers renewed. Negligible light rubbing to spine ends and joints. Top edge gilt. The first leaf of the proem has a splendid decorated initial illuminated in gold against a blue background, main text has a woodcut decorated initial. Early underlining and brief annotations to a few leaves. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, negligible light wear and browning to a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. A desirable 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. According to Marvin's Legal Bibliography, "the English translations are, more or less, inaccurate, and have accumulated errors...the French editions, therefore, are generally to be preferred" (563). This copy does not have a publication date, but its colophon, pagination (stated above) 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. The ESTC suggests 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. OCLC locates 7 copies.

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

      apud Iacobum Boyerium 1560 - - apud Iacobum Boyerium, Lugduni (Lyon) 1560, fort in 16 (12,2x8cm), (24) 676pp. -34., Un Vol. relié. - Nouvelle édition. L'ouvrage fut mis à l'index et fut réédité en 1575 sous une forme expurgée et l'édition que nous présentons ne l'est donc pas. La première traduction française semble avoir paru en 1527 selon un exemplaire de l'université de Glasgow, bien qu'une donnée contradictoire donne 1528 comme date de la première édition française en latin par Robert Etienne. Rare, comme toutes les éditions. Absent de la BNF et des catalogues français (exception d'une édition à Lyon de 1586), comme de nombreuses bibliothèques. Il nous a été impossible de retrouver la date de l'originale, sûrement dans les premières années du XVIème en Italie, bien que le Grégoire donne 1571 pour la première édition.? Brunet donne 1499 comme date de la première édition. Impression en Italique. Plein Vélin d'époque. Polydore Vergil (1470-1555) est né et mort à Urbino, après avoir étudié à Bologne et Padoue, il devint le secrétaire du duc d'Urbino et le chambellan d'Alexandre VI. Ses deux premiers écrits le rendirent célèbres et obtinrent une grande popularité 'Proverbiorum libellus' et 'De inventoribus rerum', traduite en français par 'Les inventeurs des choses'. En 1501 le pape l'envoya en Angleterre, devenant l'intime de Henri VII, ce dernier lui commanda une histoire d'Angleterre par lequel Polydore devint le premier historien moderne, ne se contentant pas d'établir une simple chronique mais étudiant les événements, ainsi il influença tous les historiens futurs et même shakespeare dans sa vision de l'histoire. Il revint dans son pays natal lors des changements religieux en Angleterre. (Encyclopédie Catholique). Sous la forme d'articles, il est traité de toutes sortes d'inventions, du sel, de la poterie, de la peinture, du lin, de la musique. Le livre est aussi une histoire de la médecine et de la magie. Polydore Vergil a naturellement abondamment puisé dans les Anciens. Quelque trous de vers sur le dos, une déchirure en tête du Vélin. (24) 676pp. -34. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Antwerp: Christpher Plantin for Willem Silvius 1560 - FIRST EDITION, title within woodcut border, interleaved and annotated in the eighteenth-century (see below), title trimmed at foot with slight loss to border, side note on f. 90v trimmed, one or two annotations slightly trimmed, worming in the gutter, just affecting text on 2 leaves (the worming only affecting the printed text, not the interleaves), rust hole in f. 42 with the loss of a couple of letters, ff. [viii], 129, [3], 8vo, eighteenth-century unlettered calf, slightly rubbed, some surface abrasion to spine and lower cover, good The scarce first edition of a book which held sway for two and a half centuries, a copy that was rebound, interleaved and annotated in the mid-eighteenth century, probably in England. ‘Originating as an accessible manual of diagnosis for municipal authorities, it emphasized the observable aspects of illness and downplayed the role of humors and hidden causes. As a result, it both heralded and served the trend to symptom-based nosology. Eventually, as disease concepts shifted from symptoms to organs, Lommius was eclipsed by the next epistemic fashion: positivistic organicism. The multiple editions of this work invite us to reconsider the sustained influence of ancient writers, including Celsus, in medical pedagogy and semeiology, as well as the timing and location of the development of nosological concepts of disease’ (Jacalyn Duffin, Jodocus Lommius’s Little Golden Book in Jnl. of the History of Med. and Allied Sciences, Vol. 61, pp. 249-287, 2006).The book bears witness to a close study, the entire text studded with asterisks in the margins. There are long notes, in Latin in a neat hand, on 33 pages of the interleaves, a few of them extending over several pages. Most of the notes are references to writers subsequent to Lommius, some English, Willis, Floyer and Bayne, the last seemingly David Kinneir, who published A New Essay on the Nerves in 1738 under that pseudonym. Continental writers referred to are Hoffmann and Boerhaave. The annotator seems to have been particularly interested in asthma. Given that the book was so often reprinted, it is interesting that the eighteenth-century owner chose a copy of the first edition for study. (Adams L1431; Ruelens & De Backer p. 23)

One such example that is notable for its contents was by Petrus Pitatus (Verona 1564 [sic: there was a Venice edition that year], written 1539). He discussed the rule of Easter . and drew up a lunar calendar for 1539-1805. He argued for the same sort of lunar calendar adjustment as in the Breviary, but he also wanted to have no fewer than 14 days dropped for the solar calendar to bring it back (as he thought) to that of its founder, Julius Caesar. Most significantly for later history, accepting a value of 134 for J, he compromised and pleaded for the rule whereby three out of four centennial years be ordinary (non leap-years). This is, of course, the Gregorian rule’ (J.D. North, in Proceedings of the Vatican Conference to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the Gregorian Calendar Reform, p. 101).The colophon reads: Impressum Veronae: per Austulphum Veronensem [Astolfo di Grandi] in aedibus authoris: opera et expensis Pauli Rauagnani de Asula. This suggests that the volume was produced as an article of self-promotion: nevertheless, the book is important. Sheets from this edition were re-issued in Basle in 1568 by Perna, with the first gathering reset (and a new title provided) and the last two leaves omitted.

        [Calligraphic sample book, with poems, aphorisms, etc.]. [Netherlands, ca. 1655/75?]. Small oblong 4to (14.5×20.5 cm). Manuscript in French on paper, with 51 fine examples of calligraphy (including 10 continuing over 2 or 3 leaves), mostly verses and aphorisms, in about 8 different styles of script. Most sample scripts open with a decorative initial (8 highlighted in gold and 6 with penwork faces in profile), 2 alluding to the Dutch House of Orange with tulips and an orange tree. Contemporary gold-tooled parchment, each board with an oval wreath of branches (probably intended as orange-tree branches) in the centre and a branch in each corner. Ties lacking.

      Finely finished, calligraphic sample book probably made for a member or associate of the Dutch House of Orange. Although there is no general title-page, the book opens with a four-line verse, titled at the foot, "Orange desespoir". One initial, with an orange tree and tulips, clearly alludes to the Dutch House of Orange (and the Prince of Orange) and another initial also has tulips. Most show the pointed-pen scripts pioneered by Cresci in Italy beginning around 1560 and further developed in the Netherlands in the 17th century. Others show styles similar to roman and italic printing types, French ronde and bastarda scripts. There is a calligraphic inscription, at least partly in pencil, on the underside of the front paste-down, perhaps the owner's own calligraphic efforts. The ink of the one gothic initial in the manuscript has damaged the paper, leaving some holes in the thickest strokes of the letter. Otherwise in very good condition, with the first few leaves slightly soiled. Binding slightly stained and the boards slightly warped, but still good.

      Alt Japan Kat. 1151; De Backer-Sommervogel VI, cols 817-18; Cordier, Japonica, cols 290-1; Palau 226932; not in Nipponalia. 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 of these 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.

Mit Druckermarke auf dem Titelblatt sowie holzgeschnittenem Kopfstück und zahlreichen Holzschnittinitialen. Gültlingen VIII, 273. - Sehr seltene Lyonnaiser Ausgabe, absolut druckidentisch mit der Ausgabe bei Antoine Vincent aus demselben Jahr (vgl. Gültlingen VII, 352; Fingerprint-Vergleich mit dem inkompletten Exemplar der Forschungsbibliothek Gotha), offenbar als sog. "édition partagée" zu Beginn der französischen Plutarch-Renaissance erschienen. Unser vorliegendes Exemplar mit dem Druckvermerk und der -vignette Bonhommes nicht bei Baudrier, Adams und im BMGC. Die Ausgabe bei Vincent mit dessen Druckermarke bei Adams P1617. - Der dünne, ungefütterte Pergamentumschlag berieben und stellenweise etwas fleckig, an den durchgezogenen Pergamentbünden vom Block gelöst. Kapital sowie oberer Rand des Vorderdeckels etwas beschädigt und mit Fehlstellen. Buchrücken gewellt und mit alten Feuchtigkeitsspuren. Seiten etwas braunfleckig. Papier gebräunt und etwas gewellt. Auf dem Fußschnitt handschriftlich "Plutarcus" vermerkt. Der handschriftliche Rückentitel in Tusche aufgrund der Bräunung des Pergamentes kaum lesbar. Insgesamt gutes und sauberes Exemplar. - Scarce Lyon edition in original parchment wrappers, not known by Baudrier / Adams / BMGC. Absolutely identical with the print of Antoine Vincent from the same year, just imprint and devices different. Apparently a so called "édition partagée", but without explicit imprint. - Wrappers detached and with some little defects, pages browned and somewhat stained. Overall a good copy. Sprache: la Gewicht in Gramm: 1050 8° (17,5 - 22,5 cm). Flexibler Pergamentumschlag der Zeit mit überstehenden, gefalzten Vorderkanten.
