Girolamo RUSCELLI (Viterbo 1504 - Venezia 1566)
Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1560, priva di firma. Esemplare nel primo stato, prima tiratura e prima del taglio della lastra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su un foglio di carta vergata coeva (ottenuto da due uniti) con filigrana "scudo con fiore e stella", con pieni margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Burden, The mapping of North America, 29; Ginsberg; Printed Maps of Scandinavia and the Arctic, 19; Shirley, The Mapping of the World, 109; Bella, Cartografia Rara (Collezione Novacco), p. 49, 41; Borroni Salvadori, Raccolte, 3 & 4. Nordenskiold collection 7. Rarissimo esemplare, prima del testo al verso e prima della pubblicazione, con il taglio della lastra, nella Geographia di Tolomeo del Ruscelli. Girolamo Ruscelli erudito e poligrafo nativo di Viterbo, si formò a Roma ma si trasferì ben presto nel Veneto dove curò, per la tipografia Valgrisi, le edizioni di numerosi classici italiani. Ruscelli fu anche il curatore della versione riveduta e ampliata della Geographia di Tolomeo, stampata a Venezia più volte tra il 1561 e la fine del secolo. Le mappe sono basate sulle tavole di Giacomo Gastaldi compilate per l'edizione del 1548; probabilmente il Gastaldi disegnò personalmente anche queste carte, che vennero incise dai fratelli Livio e Giulio Sanuto. La peculiarità delle mappe è che sono incise due per lastra e successivamente tagliate per essere inserite nel libro, di formato in-quarto; questo il motivo per cui il segno del rame appare solo in tre lati della mappa. La carta della Scandinavia è tuttavia basata sulla Carta da Navegar di Nicolo Zeno, edita … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giustinian Pietro
1560. In-folio (30cm) (24) 488 (4) al frontespizio Leone di S.Marcocon libro aperto. Capolettera incisi con vignette. Piena pergamena d'epoca. Ottimo esemplare. Giustinian, Pietro Storico, magistrato e senatore veneziano, nacque nel 1497 e morì nel 1576. Visse a Padova e a Venezia. Comin da Trino: Tipografo originario di Trino, attivo a Venezia. Non se ne conosce il cognome; non ci sono prove che fosse parente dei Giolito. Fu uno dei tipografi più attivi di Venezia alla metà del XVI s. e stampò per un gran numero di editori, le cui marche gli sono state spesso attribuite; nel primo periodo della sua attività ebbe problemi con la giustizia per stampa di testi eterodossi. Morì dopo il 1573 o in quello stesso anno, senza lasciare eredi; secondo Veneziani la sua bottega e il suo materiale tipografico vennero rilevati da Giacomo Vidali.

CARRANZA, Bartholome
1560. Bartolomé Carranza was a 16th-century Dominican archbishop who was persecuted by the Spanish Inquisition for charges of heresy, even though no evidence ever supported these charges. He composed numerous theological essays including 'Summa Conciliorum et Pontificum;' a collection of dissertations in which he argues the authority of the church to govern, traditions within the Catholic Church, the viability of scripture, role of the Pope, and importance of ecumenical councils.

Geneva: Rouland Hall, 1560. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY BLEMISH! Bible leaf collectors know that some leaves are hard to look at and others look as new as the day they left the printing press. The condition of a particular leaf reflects its history and is not an indication of its actual value. Perfect leaves are ones that have seen little or no use over the centuries in contrast to those that are scarred by the ravages of time. Unblemished leaves are unloved leaves because they have had little contact with sinners. Imperfect leaves tell a story. Some are torn and ripped and worn away by excessive use while others have burns or worm holes and still others are water stained by flood and sometimes even tears. Each ugly mark or stain is in fact a beautiful witness to the Word of God, which, "liveth and abideth forever." We offer Bible leaves as we acquire them letting their condition speak for themselves. All our leaves are sold as seen on eBay. You may request additional images and information for any leaf. [Attributes: First Edition]

CALVIN, Jean
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Bible & Commentary Book of Acts Martyrs Crespin Binding FOLIO "We should ask God to increase our hope when it is small, awaken it when it is dormant, confirm it when it is wavering, strengthen it when it is weak, and raise it up when it is overthrown." ― John Calvin An extremely rare, 16th-century printing of John Calvin's commentary on the New Testament Book of Acts. Calvin wrote a number of biblical commentaries, each of which have become very popular references for hundreds of years. This edition was published in Geneva by Jean Crespin, a close friend of Calvin's. In 1548, Crespin moved so he could be near his close friend and, consequently, began publishing and printing Calvin's works. Adams notes that his book was actually published in 1561, even though the title page states 1560. This exquisite example is beautifully bound by a modern professional. Truly a remarkable piece!

PICCOLOMINI, Alessandro
Giordano Ziletti, Venezia (Venetia), 1560. 8vo, (19),559, pp, text in Italian, engraved printer device on front, bound in contemporary vellum over boars, title inked on spine, Rare, very attractive copy. Alessandro Piccolomini (13 June 1508 ¿ 12 March 1579) was an Italian astronomer and philosopher from Siena, who promoted the popularization in the vernacular of Latin and Greek scientific and philosophical treatises. His early works include Il Dialogo della bella creanza delle donne, o Raffaella (1539) and the comedies Amor costante, and Alessandro, (other titles are erroneously attributed to him) which were sponsored and produced by the Sienese Accademia degl'Intronati, of which he was a member and an official. Much of his literary production consisted of translations from the Classics, of which Book xiii of Ovid's Metamorphoses and book vi of the Aeneid are early examples. In 1540, while a student at the University of Padua, he helped found the Infiammati Academy, in which he gave lectures in philosophy. (He never taught at the University of Padua, as is often stated incorrectly.) His poetry, in which he followed the Petrarchan tradition, appeared first in various contemporary collections, and in 1549 he published as a single volume one hundred sonnets titled Cento sonetti. Later in life, he translated Aristotle's Poetics on which he wrote a learned commentary issued in 1575. His interest in Aristotle included the publication of a paraphrase of Aristotle's Rhetoric with commentary. In his Trattato della grandezza della terra e dell' acqua (1558), he opposed the Aristotele … [Click Below for Full Description]

Astrologie, Physiognomik, Chiromantie etc. - Indagine, Johannes (J. von Hagen):
Frankfurt, David Zöpffel. circa 15,5 x 10,5 cm., 144 Blatt (das letzte weiss), mit zahlreichen Textholzschnitten. Pergament d. 19. Jh. VD 16, R 3113. Adams I, 89; Cantamessa, II, 3889, Anm. Sechster Druck dieser Sammlung kurioser Traktate zu verschiedenen okkulten Wissenschaften wie Handlesekunst, Wahrsagen aus Gesichtszügen, Astrologie etc. von Johannes Indagine (um 1467-1537; eigentlich Johannes von Hagen, auch Johannes Rosenbach). "Überregionale Bedeutung gewann Indagine auf dem Gebiet der damals ebenso modischen wie umstrittenen Astrologie sowie auf den damit verwandten Feldern der Chiromantie und Physiognomie. Er beriet u. a. die Kurfürsten von Mainz und Brandenburg vor der Kaiserwahl 1519, und es scheint, daß seine Horoskope eine Verschiebung des Wahltermins mitbewirkt haben. Die möglicherweise erstrebte Stelle eines Hofastrologen bei Karl V. hat er nicht erreicht. 1522 veröffentlichte Indagine seine 'Introductiones apotelesmaticae'... Dieses bis in das ausgehende 17. Jh. trotz päpstlicher Indizierung häufig nachgedruckte Werk mit dem von Hans Baldung Grien angefertigten Porträt Indagines auf dem Titelblatt und den veranschaulichenden Holzschnitten Hans Wechtlins im Innern hat im Deutschland der frühen Neuzeit wesentlichen Anteil an der Verbreitung der Lehre von der Deutung des Körperbaues, des Gesichts und der Handlinien. Indagine beruft sich wiederholt auf Julius Firmicus, Marsilius Ficinus u. a., doch erheben eigenständige Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen sein Werk über eine reine Kompilation" (NDB X, 168).Die schönen Holzschnitte zeigen neben dem Verfasser auf dem Ti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pietro Andrea Mattioli; Dioscorides Pedanius, of Anazarbos.
Venetia : Appresso Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1560. Hardcover. Acceptable. Folio, 29 cm. Colophon states the date as 1559. Bound in contemporary gilt ruled vellum, with blind stamp on front cover. Covers warped and stained. Lacking 6 leaves of text (signature Z). Woodcut printer's device on title, approximately 700 woodcuts in text. All edges red. NLM/Durling 3023. Also includes De Venenis and De Venenatis animalibus, works of unknown attribution (non-botanical). <br> Mattioli's Italian translation of the works of Dioscorides. <br> Mattioli (1501-1577) was a Siennese doctor and naturalist. He described more than one hundred new plants and contributed to the development of medical botany. This, his most important work, was first printed in 1544 in Italian, 1554 in Latin, French in 1561, Czech in 1562, and in German in 1563. The wood cuts in his work were accurate and standardized enough to allow for easy identification. While nominally a commentary on the work of the botanist Dioscordies, Mattioli significantly expanded the work by adding major new contributions. He relied in part on the contributions of the Turkish diplomat, Buscecq, his doctor, Quakelbeen, and the famed botanist, Luca Ghini, who founded the botanical garden in Pisa. In this work, Mattioli significantly provided the first known observation of a tomato being grown and eaten in Italy. He states that the tomato is fried in oil with salt and pepper. A description that was dutiful copied (and not doubt prepared) by a multitude of later authors. McCue, George Allen.

Munster's fabulous woodcut of monsters of both land and sea, inspired from Olaus Magnus' 'Carta Marina' of 1539, with abundant tusks, horns and twin-spouts. One vignette shows a galleon trying to outrun one monster by throwing their cargo overboard. Ortelius also adopted many of the monsters for use on his map of Iceland in 1587.

VENERIE – CHASSE). DU FOUILLOUX (Jacques).
1560. Edition fort rare de l’un des plus célèbres traité de chasse. « La première en caractères romains, et la plus jolie de toutes » (Pressac, p. 62-63). Elle offre l’avantage d’avoir été faite du vivant de l’auteur, ce qui laisse supposer qu’il a probablement revu les épreuves. L’Adolescence, qui commence à la page 273, est en lettres italiques. La Complainte du Cerf commence à la page 291. Les grandes lettres initiales de chaque chapitre sont ornées et sont les mêmes qui se retrouvent dans la Fauconnerie de Franchières, imprimée l’année précédente. L’épitre de l’auteur est suivie de l’extrait du privilège (du 23 décembre 1560, signé De Lomenie) accordé aux Marnef et « à Jacques Bouchet frères » pour dix ans. Notre exemplaire est incomplet de la page de titre (reproduite ici sur papier ancien avec la gravure représentant l’auteur offrant son livre au roi, sous la forme de deux feuillets montés sur onglet), du deuxième feuillet de table et d’un feuillet en fin d’ouvrage (pages 293 et 294) pour la Complainte du Cerf (qui manque très souvent à de nombreux exemplaires).

CHEZ GUILLAUME CAVELLAR, 1560. Legatura dell'inizio del XIX secolo in piena pelle con triplice filetto e piccoli fregi angolari in oro ai piatti; dorso a 5 nervi rilevati con titolo in oro su tassello verde ed eleganti fregi in oro agli scomparti; tagli rossi; guardie marmorizzate. 20 carte non numerate, compreso il frontespizio con titolo, marca tipografica a silografia e data manoscritta; 222 carte numerate; 2 carte finali non numerate, l'ultima con grande marca tipografica raffigurante gallina all'interno di un doppio cerchio con motto; all'interno, 2 tabelle ripiegate fuori testo, numerose incisioni nel testo di diagrammi o scene di misurazioni. Al margine inferiore della carta 121 recto, nota manoscritta "à Langlois". Seconda edizione in francese, tradotta da Jean Pierre de Mesmes, dell'opera latina "Elucidatio fabricae ususque Astrolabii", pubblicata in latino in prima edizione nel 1512 a Oppenheim nella sua prima stamperia. E' il trattato più completo del suo tempo sull'astrolabio. Cfr. Stilwell, 892 " Stöffler recognized that, in mapping, computation of the distance between two places whose latitude and longitude were known failed to take into account the convergence of the meridians". L'opera si conclude con una relazione sulla prospettiva e la misurazione. Stoefler fu un cappellano e matematico tedesco, astronomo e astrologo, insegnò all'Università di Tubingen, costruì un orologio astronomico per l'Università di Münster, e fu inventore di un calendario. Esemplare in buone condizioni complessive, qualche lieve traccia d'uso alla legatura, tracce di sporco al fronte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ohne, Ort. Dt. Handschrift auf Papier. Kanzleikursive in brauner Feder, Kapitelauszeichnungen und Initialen kalligraphiert. 28 Zeilen, der Schriftspiegel von Federlinien eingefaßt. 12 Bll., 1 weißes Blatt, 83 Blatt, 2 weiße Bll. (= vollständig mit 190 beschriebenen Seiten). Zeitgenössischer flexibler Pergamentband mit goldgeprägter Deckelbordüre, beide Decken durch dieselbe Bordüre gerautet, der Rücken durch ebendiese in sechs Felder geteilt, darin jeweils florale Vergoldung. Dreiseitige Schnittpunzierung. Folio (280:390 mm). Als "oberster provossen Leutnant" war der - gegenwärtig noch nicht identifizierte - Verfasser unserer Handschrift 1552 Angehöriger des Stabes des damaligen Regimentsobersten Herzog Moritz Kurfürst von Sachsen und zählte damit zu den ranghöchsten Befehlshabern in dem von Moritz von Sachsen geführten kaiserlichen Landsknechtsheer. Als Leutnant des Profossen (Provost oder Profot) hatte er sich in seinem Regiment um die Durchsetzung und Einhaltung der Feldordnung unter den Landsknechten zu kümmern; er ermittelte die Rechtsbrecher, setzte sie fest und trat vor Gericht als öffentlicher Ankläger und hernach als Urteilsvollstrecker auf. Nach Ende eines Feldzugs war der Profoß nicht mehr durch das Militärrecht geschützt, weswegen er das Regiment meist vor dessen Auflösung verließ, um sich so vor Racheakten der von ihm verfolgten Landsknechte zu schützen. Nach mehr als 20 Jahren im kaiserlichen Heeresdienst nun also ohne Sold und Beschäftigung, wandte sich der ehemalige Landsknecht 1560 mit dem vorliegenden autobiographischen Manuskript direkt an Kaiser Ferdinan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Haines, gilt lettering and decoration to spine with date at foot, upper and lower covers with central gilt crescent and star motif with gilt decorated frame, all edges gilt, decorated inner dentelles, binder's name at first inner bottom edge. Two binding creases on first few leaves and on a few at rear, browning to varying degrees throughout, heavy on some pages, a few pages unevenly browned (see attached image), all text legible, old ink stamp at bottom of title page, occasional old ink underlining, engraved bookplate to first pastedown, occasional small old ink spot, no loss to text, otherwise a good copy with the very early map. Produced as a second part to Simeoni's Le sententiose impresi though also issued separately. Some of the woodcuts are attributed to Pierre Eskrich, and were previously used in Rouillé's edition of Du Choul. The map, the earliest to depict a region of France in detail, purports to show the site of the famous battle of Caesar against Vercingetorix, based on Simeoni's careful researches into the episode in Caesar's Gallic Wars. It supplies a precious document on 16th century Auvergne, its towns, chateaux and churches. See: Ruth Mortimer, Harvard Library of French 16th Century Boo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giacomo GASTALDI
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

EDITION ORIGINALE RARISSIME EN PURE RELIURE DE L'EPOQUE DE La Franciade DEDICACEE AU ROI Charles IX (1560-1574). Barbier, J.-P., Ma bibliothèque poétique, II, n°51 ; Tchemerzine, V, 450 et 452 ; Ronsard : la trompette et la lyre, Bibliothèque Nationale, 1985, n°178. « A la fin de l'été 1571, les quatre premiers livres étaient terminés. Amadys Jamyn lut au roi le dernier chant au mois de septembre, et Charles IX goûta fort ce poème, se faisant relire deux fois le passage qui stigmatise les rois fainéants » (Chamard, 2, III : 108-109). Il ne restait qu'à donner l'ouvrage à l'imprimeur, ce qui fut fait à peu près au moment de la Saint-Barthélemy, condition déplorable pour capter l'attention du lecteur. Il est singulier de voir combien les louanges furent nombreuses et répétées. Presque dans chaque recueil contemporain, on donne une allusion à La Franciade. « Il est intéressant de voir qu'un mouvement se dessine aujourd'hui pour réhabiliter « La Franciade » » (J.P. Barbier). L'œuvre ne manque point d'attraits : le sens du déploiement romanesque, la peinture d'actions, l'insertion des voix féminines. Mais La Franciade est victime des hésitations de Ronsard, de ses doutes aussi quant au sens de l'histoire, au moment où celle-ci, marquée par les déchirements religieux, bouscule les certitudes d'un poète-historiographe qui, en dépit de sa volonté d'amender son épopée en 1573, 1578 et 1584, la laissera inachevée.

The first edition was published in Naples in 1558, and is very rare too. This work includes the very first description of the camera obscura or dark room; in other words, the description of the first technical device allowing the projection of an image. Also contains various observations and thoughts regarding geology, metallurgy and magnetism, as well as poisons, drugs, perfumes, etc. "Della Porta was an Italian scholar, polymath and playwright who lived in Naples at the time of the Scientific Revolution and Reformation. Giambattista della Porta spent the majority of his life on scientific endeavours. He benefited from an informal education of tutors and visits from renowned scholars. His most famous work, first published in 1558, is entitled Magiae Naturalis (Natural Magic). ... He was also referred to as 'professor of secrets' ... His private museum was visited by travelers and was one of the earliest examples of a natural history museum. It inspired the Jesuit Athanasius Kircher to begin a similar, even more renowned, collection in Rome. Della Porta was the founder of a scientific society called the Academia Secretorum Naturae (Accademia dei Segreti). This group was more commonly known as the Otiosi, (Men of Leisure).

JOHANNES GANDAVENSIS (Jean de Jandun)
Venezia, Gerolamo Scoto, 1560. In-f° (32 x 22), ff. (6)+845 colonne di stampa (testo su 2 colonne). Al frontespizio xilografia in ovale con ritratto di Aristotele; al verso dell'ultimo foglio bella impresa tipografica dello Scoto. Legatura più recente in mezza pergamena con titoli ms. al dorso. Antichi timbri di biblioteca al frontespizio ("duplum"), alcune tracce d'umidità soprattutto marginali, piccoli restauri al margine estreno del frontespizio. (8180) Dotti commentari ai 12 libri della Metafisica di Aristotele, con le annotazioni di Marco Antonio Zimara eunitamente al suo De Principio Individuationis. I testi dello Zimara (1460-1532), originario di Galatina e docente di filosofia a Padova, erano stati pubblicati da Ottaviano Scoto nel 1505, con dedica ad Andrea Mocenigo. Johannes Gandavensis (o Jean de Jandun), il cui nome è indicato sovente con svariate grafie, presumibilmente originario di Gand, visse e soggiornò a Parigi nel XIV secolo, e qui conobbe anche Marsilio da Padova. "Jean de Jandun of course had to leave Paris as soon as his part in the writing of the Defensor Pacis became known, and after his escape from the papal prison in Avignon, seems to have been with Louis of Bavaria until that monarch's death in 1343, although some would place Jean's death in early as 1328" (Thorndike, III/pp. 282-3, in nota). Fabricius, Bibl. Latina, IV/p. 77, riporta le disparate grafie del nome dell'autore ("Joannes de Gandav, sive de Gauduno, alias de Jandun, alias de Geduno, Perusiae Theologiam et Philosophiam docuit & circa A. 1326 scripsit librum de potestate Ecclesiastica, … [Click Below for Full Description]
