GESSNER, C.
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 viv … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALVERDE DE AMUSCO, Juan
Roma, Antonio Salamanca et Antonio Lafreri, 1560. Engraved title page + (17) + 154 leafs. + (1) p.Complete with 42 engraved plates. Richley blind-tooled calf from the 19th century, new back in leather.Stamp with Owner's signature on fly-leaf. Fly-leaf and engraved title page with small tears and paper loss. First and last pages slightly soiled. Otherwise interior plates and pages in excellent condition. Juan Valverde de Amusco (c. 1525-?) was born in the Kingdom of León in what is now Spain and studied medicine in Padua and Rome under Realdo Columbo and Bartolomeo Eustachi. He published several works on anatomy. Valverde's most famous work was Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano, first published in Rome, 1556. Most of the engravings in Valverde's anatomy are directly copied from the woodcuts in Vesalius "Fabrica", some with extra details added such as suits of armour and new heads. Among the new figures one finds the famous plate of the flayed muscle-manikin holding his skin in his right hand and a dagger in his left, and the standing pregnant woman with her abdomen cut open (Hagelin, Rare and important medical books in the library of the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, 1992, p. 54-55). This edition in italian is very rare and the figures are better than in later editions.

VD 16, H 5145; Stalla 371; Estreicher XVIII, 283; Wetzer-W. VI, 297 f. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe, die lateinische Originalausgabe war 1553-57 erschienen. Hosius war Bischof von Ermland, Kardinal und später einer der päpstl. Legaten beim Konzil von Trient. Mit seiner Confessio, die, auf den Beschlüssen der Synode von Petrikau aufbauend, bewusst der protestantischen Confessio Augustana entgegengestellt ist, wurde er der Begründer der Gegenreformation in Polen, die zu einer vollständigen Rekatholisierung des Landes führte. Sein Werk, vielleicht das bedeutendste literarische Dokument der Gegenreformation, wurde schon zu Hosius` Lebzeiten in 23 europäische Sprachen übersetzt. Die deutsche Übertragung des Wormser Dompredigers Johann zu Wege ist Michael v. Kuenburg, Erzbischof von Salzburg, gewidmet. - Titel mit Besitzvermerk von Johannes Buck(h), Kaplan in Riedlingen, dat. 1602; Franz Carl Leüw, dat. 1764; kl. Sammlerstempel d. 20. Jh. Zum Einband s.

Bock, Hieronymus:
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 durchstreifte 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seneca, Lucius Annaeus.
Venetia: Appresso Gio. Battista et Marchion Sessa F. 8vo (15.3 cm; 6"). [6], 347, [1 (blank)] ff.. [colophon: 1560] First edition of Seneca's tragedies in Italian (Agamemnon, Hercules furens, Hercules Oetaeus, Medea, Octavia Praetexta, Oedipus, Phaedra, Phoenissae, Thyestes, and Troades) being Lodovico Dolce's translation. Dolce was a Venetian humanist and prolific author, translator, and editor. He worked for Gabriele Giolito de' Ferrari's press and had his hand in upwards of 96 works from that considerable printing enterprise. Why this work came from the Sessa press we do not know. The volume is printed in italic with a spare use of woodcut headpieces and initials in the preliminaries, first leaf of text, and at the beginning of each play; the Sessa non-cat printer's device adorns the title-page. There is an error state on the last leaf ("Gli errori delle stampe si rimettono al giudicio di chi legge"). Early vellum over light paste boards, endpapers foxed; evidence of ties, later inked title on spine. Lower blank margin of title-leaf torn away and repaired with a lighter paper; one short tear on another page repaired. Light waterstaining in lower outer corners and sometimes slenderly across top margins; two small, pin-type wormholes in upper inner margins of leaves at back of volume. Final blank leaf present; all edges carmine with a little bleed-in to some margins. Overall a clean, solid, decent copy.

Later vellum 13 cm - The greatest known source of information about the philosophers of antiquity (Ref: Hoffmann 1,569; Graesse 2,397, erroneously dating 1561) (Details: 2 thongs laced through the joints. Woodcut printer's mark of De Marnef on the title (BaTyR no. 28133), depicting a pelican on his nest, feeding his young with his own blood; the motto is: 'In me mors, in me vita'. On the last page another version of De Marnef's printer's mark (BaTyR no. 2882), now depicting a griffon that holds in its claw a cubic weight to which is attached a winged globe. The cube stands for constancy and the globe for fortune; the motto is: 'Virtutis et gloriae, comes invidia'. Marnef used this version of his mark only at the end of the books he printed; This printer's mark very closely resembles that of the Lyonese printer Sébastien Gryphius, only the motto is different. Greek text and a Latin translation.) (Condition: Vellum somewhat age-toned. Short title in ink on the back. Front flyleaf removed. Stamp on front pastedown and on the title; tiny hole in outer margins of title; 4 tiny holes in last leaf; Binder's error: he bound leaf X7, p. 333/4, probably a cancel, before leaf X3) (Note: This is according to Graesse a repetition of the edition of 'De vita et moribus etc.' edited by Johannes Boulierius (Jean Boulier), Lyon 1556.
