        DESCRITTIONE DI TUTTA ITALIA Nella quale si contiene il sito di essa, l'origine & le signorie della città, & de i castelli, co i nomi antichi, & moderni, i costumi de' popoli, & le conditioni de i paesi.... Aggiuntavi nuovamente la descrittione di tutte

      Venetia, appresso Ludovico de gli Avanzi, 1561. In-8 p. (mm. 207x145), 2 parti in 1 vol., p. pergamena antica, tit. oro al dorso, tagli scuri, 42 cc.nn., 503 cc.num., 1 c.b.; 92 cc.num., 4 cc.nn.; con due marche tipografiche xilografate ai due frontespizi, ornato da grandi e belle iniziali figurate a vignetta, pure inc. su legno. Dedica dell'A. ai sovrani di Francia Enrico II e Caterina de Medici. Importante opera di carattere geografico ma anche ricca di notizie sulla storia, gli usi e i costumi delle varie regioni d'Italia “et piu gli huomini famosi, che l'hanno illustrata, i monti, i laghi, i fiumi, le montagne, i bagni, le miniere; con tutte l'opere meravigliose in lei dalla natura prodotte”. La seconda parte, dedicata specificatamente alle "Isole appartenenti alla Italia", è qui presente in “prima edizione”. “Il bolognese Leando Alberti (1479-1552?), legò il suo nome soprattutto alla "Descrittione di tutta Italia..", Bologna, 1550. A questa prima edizione, che è la più bella e stimata, ne seguirono dal 1551 al 1631 altre dieci a Venezia, e due a Colonia in latino. L'opera è costruita secondo l'intento, e in buona parte sulla falsariga, dell'"Italia Illustrata" di Flavio Biondo; è opera cioè, secondo le parole dello stesso A., non di cosmografo ma di ‘geografo topografo e historico insieme', sì che nel complesso essa può essere considerata una grande raccolta di materiale, utile soprattutto per gli sviluppi della scienza geografica e geopolitica”. Così Diz. Biografico Italiani,I, pp. 699-701. Frase ms. al primo frontesp.; rifilato al marg. super.; alone margin. sulle prime 16 cc. e con uniformi arross. più o meno lievi interc. nel t. ma complessivamente buon esemplare. .

Marchio tipografico al frontespizio, alcuni graziosi capilettera e belle testatine xil. Legatura antica in piena perg. rigida con titoli in oro su tass. al dorso. Carte di guardia assenti. Prime carte leggermente frastagliate nel margine bianco superiore, antiche note ms. di possesso e glosse al margine, lievi e sporadici aloni, fioriture e macchiette sparse. Esemplare nel complesso genuino e in buono stato di conservazione. Giulio Cesare Scaligero (1484-1558), medico e letterato nativo di Riva del Garda, fu una figura di primissimo piano nel panorama culturale europeo della prima metà del XVI secolo. Dopo l"esordio dottrinale avvenuto nel 1531 con un scritto diretto contro il Ciceronianus di Erasmo, Scaligero scrisse di grammatica e di botanica, ottenendo fama e reputazione negli ambienti scientifici. Questo trattato, assai influente nella storia della critica letteraria, teorizzava tra l"altro la superiorità di Virgilio rispetto ad Omero e condizionò anche Shakespeare e Pierre Corneille. Verosimilmente prima edizione (esistono 3 varianti dell"edizione originale con la medesima numerazione della pagine: rispettivamente di Jean Crispin, Antoine Vincent e la terza senza dati tipografici).

Così la voce Giovio (D.B.I, vol. 56) a proposito di quest"opera: "Gli Elogia [ndr, divisi in letterati e statisti] sono una miniera non solo di dati biografici, ma soprattutto di costumi del tempo, giudizi, voci, anche pettegolezzi, in un"epoca che si dedicò, e non in poca misura, alla creazione delle personalità eroiche. Si tratta di brevi composizioni che impiegano le res gestae e la tradizione orale per delineare pregi e difetti di un personaggio, anche accogliendo notizie oggi non verificabili altrove, purché servano a ritrarne l"essenza, così come i contemporanei lo percepivano". Non comune e sempre ricercato. Cfr. Iccu; Kvk..

Esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Alessandro Piccolomini (1508-1579), nativo di Siena, appartenne alla stessa famiglia di papa Pio II. Fu ecclesiastico, letterato, commediografo e poeta. Tradusse Virgilio, Senofonte, Ovidio e soprattutto Aristotele, di cui fu tra i più insigni divulgatori. Questo fortunato trattato dedicato alla proporzione acqua/terra nel nostro pianeta, passa in rassegna quanto scritto sull"argomento da filosofi, matematici e geografi antichi. L"Autore conclude che "l'acqua non solamente non esser come molti vogliono di gran lunga maggiore in quantità che la terra, ma ne forse punto maggiore, ma più tosto ancora minore".

        Dionysii Halicarnassei Antiquitatum, sive Originum Romanarum libri decem, Sigismundo Gelenio interprete. Adiecimus Undecimum ex versione Lapi: ac indicem rerum notatu dignarum locupletissimum.

      Lyon (Lugduni), Apud Antonium Vincentium, 1561. (Colophon at the end: 'Lugduni excudebat Symphorianus Barbierus) - 16mo. 854,66 p. Calf 12.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 1,586; Graesse 2,400) (Details: Back gilt, and with 4 raised bands, red morocco shield in the second compartment. Endpapers marbled. Edges of the bookblock dyed red. Latin translation only.) (Condition: Binding somewhat scuffed, corners bumped. Waterstain on the title. Paper slightly yellowing) (Note: The 'Antiquitates Romanae' of the Greek rhetor and historian Dionysius Halicarnassensis, who came to Rome ca. 30 B.C. to teach rhetoric, and who spent there at least 22 years or longer, are little known and little read nowadays. His work on literary criticism still is of importance, for it shows that he was an excellent critic with good taste, great knowledge and a subtle judgement. As historian however he is almost forgotten. H.J. Rose's summary of the 'Antiquitates Romanae' explains its weakness: 'He writes as might be expected, in the rhetorical tradition, and as a result his book is nearly worthless as history, devoting much space to elaborate retelling to the late and artificial mythology of Rome. For this very reason, however, it is of some service to students of Roman antiquities, for it preserves a good many interesting facts concerning the earliest civil and religious institutions. We have 11 books left, with excerpts from 9 more, carrrying the narrative down to 271 B.C.' (H.J. Rose, 'A handbook of Greek literature', London 1965, p. 399) The historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus enjoyed great authority until the 18th century. He was thought to be superior to the other Roman historians who wrote about the early history of Rome. His influence on the 'artes historicae' of the Renaissance is great. He was admired by Bodin, Vossius and Scaliger. Then the spirit of the Enlightenment made his poetic conception of history obsolete. Scholars like the Dutch ancient historian Perizonius made mincemeat of him, and burried him in the dust of oblivion. The 'Altertumswissenschaft' of the 19th century held him also in low esteem, and he was degraded to 'Graeculus', an insignificant Greek. The last decades seem to be friendlier for Dionysius. (Bowersock, Gabba). He now has simply become a witness whom scholars start to ask other questions. § The Bohemian classical scholar Sigismund Gelenius, or Zikmund Hrubý, 1497-1554, produced editions of Callimachus, Aristophanes, the Planudean Anthology, Origenes, and the 'editio princeps' of several minor Greek geographers. Circa 1524 he ended up in Basel where he worked as 'lector', translator and critic in the famous Publishing House of Frobenius. (Neue Deutsche Biographie 6 (1964), p. 173) He declined lucrative professorships. In Basel he published in 1549 his Latin translation of the 'Antiquitates Romanae' of Dionysius Halicarnassensis for the first time. It was reissued by Froben in 1555 and 1561. The Lyon printer Sebastianus Gryphus repeated the edition also in 1555, and in 1561 the Lyon printer Antonius Vincentius saw room for yet another edition) (Provenance: On the verso of the front flyleaf in ink: 'Bibliothecae Publicae S(ancti) Vincent, Bisunt, lotte 177'. Bisunt is Bisuntium, the Latin name of the French city Besançon. The French Abbé Jean-Baptiste Boisot, 1638-1694, was a historian and a bibliophile. He was appointed abbot of the Benedict abbey of Saint Vincent in Besançon by King Louis XIV. The abbot left his manuscripts and books to the abbey of Saint Vincent, on condition that the library should be open to the public. (à charge et condition qu'ils mettront le tout dans une salle qui sera ouverte deux fois la semaine à tous ceux qui voudront y entrer ; lesquels pourront y lire et étudier autant de temps qu'ils souhaiteront pendant les deux jours, sans que pourtant il leur soit permis d'en distraire aucun livre). This library forms the kernel of Municipal Library of Besançon. (See for this man, his library and the abbey his lemma in Wikipédia) § On the flyleaf also in a more recent hand: 'ex libris ecure ?

        Problematum astronomicorum et geometricorum sectiones septem.

      Basel Petri 1561 - (32 x 20 cm). (20) 294 (1) S. Mit zahlreichen figürlichen und schematischen Textholzschnitten. Halbpergamentband des 18. Jahrhunderts. Erste separat veröffentlichte Ausgabe. Sie erschien im gleichen Jahr als zweiter Teil von Santbechs Regiomontan-Ausgabe. Die von Houzeau-Lancaster erwähnte Ausgabe von 1542 konnte nicht nachgewiesen werden und wurde auch von Zinner verneint (vgl. Zinner 1807). - "Daniel Santbech’s Problemata is a miscellaneous work in mixed mathematics, including astronomy, gnomonics, perspective, surveying, gunnery and navigation. The unifying element in such a wide range of disciplines is the instrument called the geometric quadrant. According to Lynn Thorndike, Santbech showed appreciation both for specific aspects of Copernicus's work, such as lunar theory, and for the Prutenic Tables, but he ignored cosmological issues. Copernicus is mentioned many times. - Virtually nothing is known about Santbech, apart from the fact that he published, in addition to this work, an edition of Regiomontanus's 'De triangulis' (Basel, 1561). The title-page calls Santbech 'Noviomagus', and this is generally interpreted as meaning 'of Nijmegen', but Andreas Kleinert reports that Santbech could be from Speyer of Neumagen, a small town near Trier" (Astronomical Images, University of Cambridge). - Die Holzschnitte des reich illustrierten Werkes zeigen schematische astronomische Abbildungen, 12 hübsche Tierkreiszeichen, die Konstruktion von Sonnenuhren, Abbildungen zur Ballistik und zur Feldmesskunst sowie die Herstellung geographischer Karten. - Exlibris. Titel mit braunen Flecken. Die Lagen B und C etwas gebräunt und mit kleinem Wasserrand in der rechten oberen Ecke. Einband etwas fleckig und bestoßen.

        Dionysii Halicarnassei Antiquitatum, sive Originum Romanarum libri decem, Sigismundo Gelenio interprete. Adiecimus Undecimum ex versione Lapi: ac indicem rerum notatu dignarum locupletissimum.

      Lyon (Lugduni), Apud Antonium Vincentium, 1561. (Colophon at the end: 'Lugduni excudebat Symphorianus Barbierus) 16mo. 854,66 p. Calf 12.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann 1,586; Graesse 2,400) (Details: Back gilt, and with 4 raised bands, red morocco shield in the second compartment. Endpapers marbled. Edges of the bookblock dyed red. Latin translation only.) (Condition: Binding somewhat scuffed, corners bumped. Waterstain on the title. Paper slightly yellowing) (Note: The 'Antiquitates Romanae' of the Greek rhetor and historian Dionysius Halicarnassensis, who came to Rome ca. 30 B.C. to teach rhetoric, and who spent there at least 22 years or longer, are little known and little read nowadays. His work on literary criticism still is of importance, for it shows that he was an excellent critic with good taste, great knowledge and a subtle judgement. As historian however he is almost forgotten. H.J. Rose's summary of the 'Antiquitates Romanae' explains its weakness: 'He writes as might be expected, in the rhetorical tradition, and as a result his book is nearly worthless as history, devoting much space to elaborate retelling to the late and artificial mythology of Rome. For this very reason, however, it is of some service to students of Roman antiquities, for it preserves a good many interesting facts concerning the earliest civil and religious institutions. We have 11 books left, with excerpts from 9 more, carrrying the narrative down to 271 B.C.' (H.J. Rose, 'A handbook of Greek literature', London 1965, p. 399) The historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus enjoyed great authority until the 18th century. He was thought to be superior to the other Roman historians who wrote about the early history of Rome. His influence on the 'artes historicae' of the Renaissance is great. He was admired by Bodin, Vossius and Scaliger. Then the spirit of the Enlightenment made his poetic conception of history obsolete. Scholars like the Dutch ancient historian Perizonius made mincemeat of him, and burried him in the dust of oblivion. The 'Altertumswissenschaft' of the 19th century held him also in low esteem, and he was degraded to 'Graeculus', an insignificant Greek. The last decades seem to be friendlier for Dionysius. (Bowersock, Gabba). He now has simply become a witness whom scholars start to ask other questions. § The Bohemian classical scholar Sigismund Gelenius, or Zikmund Hrubý, 1497-1554, produced editions of Callimachus, Aristophanes, the Planudean Anthology, Origenes, and the 'editio princeps' of several minor Greek geographers. Circa 1524 he ended up in Basel where he worked as 'lector', translator and critic in the famous Publishing House of Frobenius. (Neue Deutsche Biographie 6 (1964), p. 173) He declined lucrative professorships. In Basel he published in 1549 his Latin translation of the 'Antiquitates Romanae' of Dionysius Halicarnassensis for the first time. It was reissued by Froben in 1555 and 1561. The Lyon printer Sebastianus Gryphus repeated the edition also in 1555, and in 1561 the Lyon printer Antonius Vincentius saw room for yet another edition) (Provenance: On the verso of the front flyleaf in ink: 'Bibliothecae Publicae S(ancti) Vincent, Bisunt, lotte 177'. Bisunt is Bisuntium, the Latin name of the French city Besançon. The French Abbé Jean-Baptiste Boisot, 1638-1694, was a historian and a bibliophile. He was appointed abbot of the Benedict abbey of Saint Vincent in Besançon by King Louis XIV. The abbot left his manuscripts and books to the abbey of Saint Vincent, on condition that the library should be open to the public. (à charge et condition qu'ils mettront le tout dans une salle qui sera ouverte deux fois la semaine à tous ceux qui voudront y entrer ; lesquels pourront y lire et étudier autant de temps qu'ils souhaiteront pendant les deux jours, sans que pourtant il leur soit permis d'en distraire aucun livre). This library forms the kernel of Municipal Library of Besançon. (See for this man, his library and the abbey his lemma in Wikipédia) § On the flyleaf also in a more recent hand: 'ex libris ecure ? Dénans, 1727'. § Still more recent a small ownership label pasted on the verso of the marbled front endpaper: 'Dr. Charles Groffier'. § On the same spot in pencil: 'Brussel 27 sept. 1963', written by the Flemish linguist Walter Couvreur, 1914-1996, who was an Orientalist, and professor of Indoeuropean linguistics at the University of Gent.

        Carta marina nuova tavola

      Venezia 1561 - Copper engraving, mm 175x240. Ruscelli's mariner's map is a slightly enlarged version of the map which appeared in Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. It features a stipple engraved sea and numerous rhumb lines radiating from seventeen focal points. The only change seems to be the omissions of the names Tierra Del Laborador and Tierra Del Bacalaos from the mass of land joining North America to North Europe. The map contains only minimal interior detail but includes several important ports and trading posts including, Zanzibar on the east coast of Africa and Cambay, one of Indiaís two main ocean ports, visited by Marco Polo in 1293. The Magellan Strait, at the southern tip of South America is labelled and Tierra del Fuego is shown as a very large island. The map appeared in 1562, 1564, 1574 and in Giuseppe Rosaccio's expended edition of Girolamo Russelli Geografia in 1598 and 1599. Girolamo Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia included newly engraved copperplates by Giulio and Livio Sanuto. A fairly good impression, good condition, very light paper discoloration at centerfold. Shirley, World, 111; Burden p. 34, Schilder p.123 cartografia.

[About the excellent Prince of the Epirots, George Castrioti's, named Scanderbeg, life, character and deeds, especially against the Turks. Because of his famous exploits he was surnamed Scanderbeg, that is, Alexander the Great. Thirteen books by Marin Barleti of Shkodra] - A scarce early German translation of biography of the Albanian national hero Scanderbeg by the first Albanian historian Martin Barleti was published in Frankfurt in 1561. This is the second edition of the German translation of the Albanian national hero and military leader George Castriot, known as Skanderbeg (1405-1468). After leaving Ottoman service, where he served between 1423-1443, he led a rebellion against the Ottoman Empire in what is today Albania and Macedonia. The the first chapter describes Skanderbeg’s family. His father, Gjon Kastrioti, was fighting against the Ottomans on the Serbian side in the Battle of Plocnik (1386). Further text describes Scanderbeg’s life with emphasis on the battles with Ottomans, under sultan Murat II (1404-1451), who was defeated by Scanderbeg in 1450. The author Marin Barleti (c. 1450–60 – c. 1512–13) was a priest, author and historian from Shkodër in Albania. He is considered to be the first Albanian historian. Born in Shkodër (Shkodra, ital. Scutari), at the time a part of Venetian republic, he participated in the successful defence of the town against the Ottoman army, both in the first siege in 1474 and the second in 1478. A year later, in 1479, when Shkodër was ceded by the Ottoman Empire, Barleti escaped to Venice, where he published the first first-hand account on the battles of Shkodër. Martin Barleti’s first work De obsidione Scodrensi (The Siege of Shkodra) was published in Venice in 1504 and was in the next decades translated to many languages. His second work, on the Albanian national hero Scanderbeg, was published in Venice between 1508 and 1510 with a full title De Vita Moribus Ac Rebus Praecipue Aduersus Turcas, Gestis, Georgii Castrioti, Clarissimi Epirotarum Principis, qui propter celeberrima facinora, Scanderbegus, hoc est, Alexander Magnus, cognominatus fuit, libri Tredecim, per Marinum Barletium Scodrensem conscripti. The work is thought to be an Albanian cultural treasure and a foundation for all the following Scanderbeg studies. The first, very rare German translation of the book by Johann Pinicianus was published already in 1533, in Augsburg by Heinrich Steiner. This second edition, with a different title and illustrations was published in Frankfurt almost three decades later. All early translations of Barleti’s work are rare. We could only trace two examples of this edition in the auction records in the past generation.

It was published by Paul Crell (1531-1579), a student of Melanchthon, and contains Melanchthon's 1550 and 1551 lectures on 1 Timothy and the first two chapters of 2 Timothy. - Both commentaries of Melanchthon partly reversed (from leaf 73 on), contemporary annotations on first endpaper, and one of the clasps missing.

Questo trattato, assai influente nella storia della critica letteraria, teorizzava tra l"altro la superiorità di Virgilio rispetto ad Omero e condizionò anche Shakespeare e Pierre Corneille.

      Artist: Besler Basilius ( - 1629) Nuremberg; issued in: Nuremberg; date: ca 1613 1561 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Right side margin mising part and tear replaced; - size (in cm): 43 x 40,5; - description: Spledourful representation of 3 Narcissus 1.edition of the Hortus Eystettensis, printed and issued from Basilius Besler in Nuremberg 1613. 400 anniversary of the first edition!; -vita of the artist: Basilius Besler (1561?1629) was a respected Nuremberg apothecary and botanist, best known for his monumental Hortus Eystettensis. He was curator of the garden of Johann Konrad von Gemmingen, prince bishop of Eichstätt in Bavaria. The bishop was an enthusiastic botanist who derived great pleasure from his garden, which was the only important European botanical garden outside Italy. The work was named Hortus Eystettensis (Garden at Eichstätt). The emphasis in botanicals of previous centuries had been on medicinal and culinary herbs, and these had usually been depicted in a crude manner. The images were often inadequate for identification, and had little claim to being aesthetic. The Hortus Eystettensis changed botanical art overnight. The plates were of garden flowers, herbs and vegetables, exotic plants such as castor-oil and arum lilies. These were depicted near life-size, producing rich detail. The layout was artistically pleasing and quite modern in concept, with the hand-colouring adding greatly to the final effect. The work was first published in 1613 and consisted of 367 copper engravings, with an average of three plants per page, so that a total of 1084 species were depicted. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Libellus Ioannis de Sacro Bosco, de anni ratione, seu vt vocatur vulgo, Computus Ecclesiasticus. Cum praefatione Philippi Melanchthonis.

      Lutetiae [Parigi], apud Gulielmum Cauellat, sub pingui Gallina, ex aduerso collegij Cameracensis 1561 - 8vo (172x112 mm), nineteenth century marbled paper binding; 50 leaves. Xyl. initials and head-pieces. Printer’s woodcut device at title-page. Many xyl. illustrations in the text. UNCOMMON PAMPHLET BY JOHANNES DE SACROBOSCO ABOUT CHURCH CALENDAR. This copy is the B variation of the 1561 edition, without printing year at title-page. Johannes de Sacrobosco, also written Ioannis de Sacro Bosco (Genoa c. 1195 – c. 1256 in Paris), was a scholar, monk and astronomer who was a teacher at the University of Paris, recorded as originally from Genoa, Italy, residing scholar in Yorkshire and Scotland. He wrote a short introduction to the Hindu–Arabic numeral system which became the most widely read introduction to that subject in the later medieval centuries (judging from the number of manuscript copies that survive today). He also wrote a short astronomy textbook, Tractatus de Sphaera, which was widely read and influential in Europe during the later medieval centuries as an introduction to astronomy. In his longest and most original book, Sacrobosco correctly described the defects of the then-used Julian calendar, and, three centuries before its implementation, recommended a solution much like the modern Gregorian calendar. Provenance: Marginal handwritten study notes at some pages. References: IT\ICCU\LIAE\001284. OCLC, 28058516 (2 copies in USA and 1 copy in UK). Cond.: Presence of marginal water-stains at some pages and light spots. Overall, a very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
