DOLCE, Lodovico
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

[COSMOGRAPHY] HONTER, Johannes
Antwerp: J. Richard, 1560. A very good copy; a touch of marginal worming in first few leaves.. 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); later parchment covered boards with yapp edges. 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.

Fernel Jean
Paris: Andreas Wechel, 1560. Early Edition. Hardcover (Half Leather). Very Good Condition. Contemporary rolled pigskin over boards, boards heavily worn at the corners and fore-edge. Lacking the front blank, notes to pastedown, mostly minor early underlining and marginalia throughout, 3 pages towards the end heavily marked.

Though important in moving medicine away from superstition, he was also an expert in the angelic and demonic sources of illness, much discussed in this volume which was translated into English as On the Hidden Causes of Things. 425, (38), with printer's mark at rear. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Medicine & Health; Magic, Paranormal & Occult. Inventory No: 044758.

RIPA, Cesare.
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.

Lommius (Jodocus Josse van Lom)
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 ent … [Click Below for Full Description]

Polydorus VERGILIUS
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).

[MANUSCRIPT - WRITING BOOK - HOUSE OF ORANGE].
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.

PIÑEYRO, Luys.
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.

Fernel Jean
Paris: Andreas Wechel, 1560. Early Edition. Hardcover (Half Leather). Very Good Condition. Early Edition. Hardcover (Half Leather). Contemporary rolled pigskin over boards, boards heavily worn at the corners and fore-edge. Lacking the front blank, notes to pastedown, mostly minor early underlining and marginalia throughout, 3 pages towards the end heavily marked.

One of the most important medical thinkers of the Renaissance, he introduced the term physiology, and was the first to describe the spinal canal. Though important in moving medicine away from superstition, he was also an expert in the angelic and demonic sources of illness, much discussed in this volume which was translated into English as On the Hidden Causes of Things. 425, (38), with printer's mark at rear. Size: Octavo (8vo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Medicine & Health; Magic, Paranormal & Occult. Inventory No: 044758.
