      Artist: Besler Basilius (-1629) Nuremberg; Issued in: Nuremberg; date: c 1613 1561 - Artist: Besler, Basilius (1561-1629) Nuremberg; Issued in: Nuremberg; date: c. 1613; - Condition: Very good; Representation of Streaked cranesbill, Bigroot geranium, Tuberous geranium.1.edition of the Hortus Eystettensis, printed and issued from the Basilius Besler in Nuremberg 1613400 anniversary of the first edition!Basilius Besler (1561Ð1629).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 EichstŠtt 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 gardens surrounded the bishops palace, Willibaldsburg, which was built on a hill overlooking the town. These gardens had been started in 1596 and designed by Beslers colleague, Joachim Camerarius the Younger (1534Ð1598), a physician and botanist. Upon Camerarius death in 1598, Besler had the remainder of Camerarius plants moved to EichstŠtt and carried on the work of planting and supervision. The bishop commissioned Besler to compile a codex of the plants growing in his garden, a task which Besler took sixteen years to complete, the bishop dying shortly before the work was published. Besler had the assistance of his brother and a group of skilled German draughtsmen and engravers, including Sebastian Schedel, an accomplished painter, and Wolfgang Kilian, a skilled engraver from Augsburg. Kilian and his team engraved the initial copper plates, but after the bishops death, the operations moved to NŸrnberg and a new team of engravers, among whom were Johannes Leypold, Georg GŠrtner, Levin and Friedrich van Hulsen, Peter Isselburg, Heinrich Ulrich, Dominicus Custos and Servatius Raeven. Camerarius nephew, Ludwig Jungermann (1572Ð1653), was a botanist and wrote the lions share of the descriptive text.The work was named Hortus Eystettensis (Garden at EichstŠtt). 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. The first edition printed 300 copies, which took four years to sell. The book was printed on large sheets measuring 57 x 46 cm. Two versions were produced, cheap black and white for use as a reference book, and a luxury version without text, printed on quality paper and lavishly hand-coloured. The luxury version sold for an exorbitant 500 florins, while the plain, uncoloured copies went for 35 florins each. Besler could finally purchase a comfortable home in a fashionable part of NŸrnberg at a price of 2 500 florins , five coloured copies worth of Hortus Eystettensis.The work generally reflected the four seasons, showing first the flowering and then the fruiting stages. Winter was sparsely represented with a mere 7 plates. Spring was a season of abundance with 134 plates illustrating 454 plants and Summer in full swing showed 505 plants on 184 plates. Autumn closed off the work with 42 plates and 98 species. The modern French version of the herbal is known as the Herbier des quatres saisons, repeated in the 1998 Italian version L'erbario delle quattro stagioni.Descriptions of the plants were in Latin and showed remarkable anticipation of the binomial system, in that the captions often consisted of the first two or three words of the descripti [Attributes: First Edition]

        Vaccaria - Anconitana - Piovana.

      Vinegia, Dom. de Farri, 1561, - 3 opere in un vol. in-8, leg. ottoc. m. marocch. e ang., tit. oro al dorso. Edizione di notevole pregio e rarità, tra le prime di queste commedie (rispettivamente forse terza, quarta e quinta; l'originale delle prime due apparve nel 1551, la ''Piovana'' nel 1548). Si compongono tutte di cinque atti in prosa, senza distinzione di scene ed hanno le stesse caratteristiche tipogr., ciè impresa tipogr. sul tit. ed in fine (la Vaccaria solo sul tit.), iniz. silogr., car. corsivo. - I) Vaccaria. Comedia del Famosissimo Ruzzante, non meno arguta, che piacevole; pp. 95 (per errore num. 102). Probabile terza edizione (la prima apparve a Venezia, Stephano di Alessi, 1551). Scritta in dialetto veneziano e padovano, s'ispira alla ''Asinaria'' di Plauto, pur staccandosene nel finale. - II) Anconitana, comedia; pp. 77, (1). Probabile quarta edizione (la prima è del 1551) di questa commedia dall'intreccio molto complesso, scritta in parte in dialetto padovano e veneziano. - III) Piovana, comedia overo noella del Tasco; ff. 54. E' forse la quinta edizione (la prima fu pubblicata dal Giolito nel 1548) di questa arguta e vacissima commedia, dalla trama complicatissima, ispirata al ''Rudens'' di Plauto e allo ''Heautontimoroumenos'' di Terenzio; scritta interamente in dialetto padovano, viene considerata una delle più riuscite dell'autore, il quale nel prologo spiega perché ha adoperato il dialetto padovano e la lingua ''Pavana grossa''. - Importante assieme di questi lavori teatrali di Angelo Beolco (Padova 1502 - 1542), detto Ruzzante dal nome di un personaggio che egli indrodusse nelle sue commedie e che egli stesso interpretò sulla scena; è universalmente riconosciuto come uno uno dei più geniali, originali e famosi commediografi italiani. Ottimo esemplare. Ediz. mancanti al BMC e solo ediz. posteriori in Clubb e Regenstein (quest'ultimo, 530, registra la ''Anconitana''). Quest'ediz. della ''Vaccaria'' è presente solo in Allacci, 799 e Soleinne IV, 4597. L'ediz. della ''Piovana'' non è presnte in alcun repertorio consultato. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Seconda edizione dell'importante opera di Regiomontano, la prima esposizione di trigonometria piana e sferica in base alla quale furono per molti decenni calcolati i movimenti dei pianeti, le comete, le eclissi. "The first systematic treatise on plane and spheric trigonometry to be published in Europe. Although it drew heavily on Arabic sources, those earlier treatises had been either lost or forgotten by 1533 when Regiomontanus's work was first printed" (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, pp. 99-100). Scritto e completato nel 1464, fu pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1533 a Norimberga a cura di Johann Schoener. Nella prima parte, alla fine dei cinque libri del Regiomontano, sono inseriti la dedica di Johann Schoener e il "Tractatus Georgii Peurbachii super propositiones Ptolomaei de Sinibus et Chordis" (p. 131-139); chiudono la prima parte le tabelle dei seni di Regiomontano. La seconda parte fu aggiunta dal curatore Daniel Santbech e tratta problemi di geometria applicata ed in particolare degli strumenti di misura, riferendosi all'astronomia, alla gnomonica (pp. 125-164), alla meccanica.

"8º (145x90); 304, [27] h.; sign.: A-Z8, a-r8, s12; iniciales xilografiadas ; [Segunda obra: Hippocratis coi Liber de Alimento, cvm commentarijs eiusdem Francisci Vallesij Couarruiani, h. 255-303.].- // Full leather 18th century binding, spine with pine label, decorated with gilt fillets and florets. Very slight rubbing to board edges; small drill point in the upper part of the spine band without affecting the textbook ; old waterstain, visible on the lower interior half of pages 1 to 82 and from 96 to 122; some contemporary underwritings in the first aphorism of the fourth section, and very frequent in the Book on Aliment; scattered foxing points; burn traces, possibly of wax, to the internal upper corner of the last pages of the index and colophon folio, without hindering the text.- // Prov.: Handwritten ex-libris on front fly verso,  Julii Degerine . - // It was probably Francisco Valles, the  divino Valles , a professor of Medicine at the University of Acalá until he left to become the personal physician of Felipe II, who was the Spanish physician who enjoyed the greatest international fame in the 16th century. Valles, like Erasmo, was contrary to the transmission of the dogmatic knowledge and to the scholastic method and, again like Erasmo, believed that most of the teachers of his time limited their teachings to the repetition of doctrines, assuming they were true, and then made their students repeat them. Both of these men had the worst possible opinions of the functioning of the university education of their times. In Valles opinion, Medicine required a comparison of what had been said about different diseases and their possible therapies, with the symptoms and the reactions observed by oneself in real cases of the same disease, both when the observation ratified those compiled in the texts of Hippocrates, by Galen and of the previous chroniclers, especially Avicenn, and especially when those observations reported aspects that were not described, or, in particular, when there were contradictions. In that way, and in opposition to Medical texts that were limited to interpreting the assertions of the classic authors, worthy books had to include commentaries, that, stating this set of evidence, exposed the conclusions that could be assumed by taking into account the observations that other physicians of these times had made known on those diseases and physiological manifestations. So, from the heuristical point of view, and for the preponderance that he gave to the value of clinical observation, Valles proved to be more a follower of Hippocratics than of Galen. That s why Valles faced both legacies by undertaking the task of once again translating the original texts from Greek (to Latin) and discussing them following the humanist pattern (model that he was so demanding of in both the exercise of scientific as well as in educational work). A clear example is this first edition, printed in 1561, of his translation and commentaries of the book of the Aphorisms and of the booklet 'On Aliment' by Hippocrates(1). The translation of the brief 'On Aliment 'Treaty is particularly relevant, as during the Middle Ages it had been given less attention because at the time Galen had claimed that it was not Hippocrates work. This marginalization is at the origin of the scarce existence of Latin versions and, thus, enabled Valles to say that he was bringing it out of the dark. In fact, and no doubt due to our lack of skills, we could only find one version earlier than Valles ; the one that Janus Cornarius included, without commenting on its content, in his editions of 'Hippocratis omnium longe principis, opera quad apud nos extant omnia', since 1546.- // Refs.: CCPB, 000027250-7; Chinchilla, I, 232; Hernández Morejón, III, 75-76; Martín Abad, Alcalá de Henares, 557; Palau, 114825.- // (1) On the license can be read:  And he has prepared a book in Latin on the Aphorisms of Hippocrates, which was very useful within the Medical faculty, and on which, besides the effort exerted, he has spent money on it; and so the students of said faculty can make use of it, he has requested from us for a permit, so the book can be sold and printed... .- (2) About the commentaries to the 'Book of Aliment', see Teresa Santander: 'Hipócrates en España (siglo XVI)'.- Madrid: Dirección General de Archivos y Bibliotecas, 1971, p. 103 ff."

        The workes of Geffrey Chaucer, newlie printed, with diuers addicions, whiche were neuer in print before: with the siege and destruccion of the worthy citee of Thebes, compiled by Ihon Lidgate, Monke of Berie...

      [London: Pr. by Jhon [sic] Kyngston for Jhon [sic] Wight Folio (33.7 cm, 13.25"). [4], CCCLXVII ff. (lacking 6 prelim. ff., incl. t.-p., and "General Prologue"; pagination erratic; CCCLXXVIII lacking but supplied in facsimile).. 1561] Early edition of the first comprehensive collection of Chaucer's works — along with several spurious pieces. This is the fourth edition of the Workes, following the first of 1532, which included the first printed appearances of a number of Chaucer's verse and prose pieces, among them the Book of the Duchess and the Legend of Good Women. Editor William Thynne examined a number of manuscripts and printed versions in order to provide what he considered the most accurate renditions possible of the texts; his work helped to shape and direct the Renaissance perspective on Chaucer and his canon. That the text is printed in double columns of => black-letter — this being late for that, except in realms of serious law or theology — will have lent it an air of "auctorite" and, perhaps, of pleasantly suitable archaism for its original readers; the printer has also supplied => decorative woodcut initials in a variety of sizes, some historiated, some signed "I.R.," and one with a backwards "N," while the "Knight's Tale" opens with => a large woodcut of the armored knight, mounted and with jousting lance in hand. The Romaunt of the Rose is marked by a separate title-page with an elaborate border depicting the genealogy of Henry VIII using the tree motif. As the title-page and prologue are not present in this copy, it is difficult to ascertain which of the two variant states of this edition is represented here. Period-style mottled calf framed in double blind fillets, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped author and date; front free endpaper with recent pencilled annotations. 6 preliminary leaves (including title-page), first part of text through "General Prologue," and final leaf (CCCLXXVIII) lacking, the latter supplied both in facsimile of original printing and in 18th-century inked manuscript! First four leaves with upper portions repaired, with loss of two paragraphs of "Eight Goodly Questions" (which is bound in between two leaves of the preface), two and a half paragraphs of Hoccleve's "To the Kings Most Noble Grace," about 14 lines of Thynne's dedication to Henry VIII, and upper portions of the table of contents; tear to first page of the "Knight's Tale" neatly repaired from rear. Pages age-toned, some from the midpoint onwards with waterstaining across text, noticeable but never dark nor obscuring; otherwise the mostly marginal inksmear, chip/tear at an edge, or expectable soiling only. Several paper flaws, one significant and with the printing accomplished over it in instructive fashion; in some sections, apparent bad inking for the press with light spots and dark ones scattered; pagination notably erratic, with some numerals skipped and some repeated. Occasional instances of early inked annotations and marks of emphasis, particularly in the Romaunt, including long lines drawn marginally and across text. Imperfect ("read hard," when young?) and priced to reflect that; but still a Chaucerian high spot featuring all the tales of the Canterbury Tales and many other important pieces, the array set forth in => the 16th century's "antique" style.

        1561 Theodore De Beza Autograph Document Reformation { John Calvin } RARE

      Hardcover. Good. 1561 Beza, Theodore De, Autograph Document. Autograph Document answering questions in a different hand, n.p., n.d. Circa 1561. Includes 15 lines in Beza's hand, written in brown ink on the left hand portion of the leaves, in reply to questions written on the right, 2pp 4to, folded once. Slightly browned and frayed in outer edges, traces of former mounting at right hand edge on verso. 6.5" x 8.75" Answers to questions put to Beze possibly near the time of the Colloque de Poissy (1561) by a representative of the churches of the principality of Montbeliard, then belonging to the Duke of Wurttemberg. The present manuscript may document a last effort at Christian peace at a moment when the wars of religion had not yet begun; at Poissy at modus vivendi was still being sought between Catholics and Protestants. Beze replies to a question concerning the interpretation of an ordonance: "tenez vous aux modifacations sur ce faicte dont le feu duc Christophe [ de Wurttemberg] mesme s'est contente de peur de n'estre contraincts de rien innover.

        1561 Theognis of Megara + 1632 Homer’s Iliad GREEK TEXTS Poetry ROME Mythology

      Basileae : Ex officina Ioannis Oporini, 1561. - 1561 Theognis of Megara + 1632 Homer’s Iliad GREEK TEXTS Poetry ROME Mythology 2 Works in 1 Binding / Neither Found Selling Worldwide! The Iliad is an ancient Greek epic poem in dactylic hexameter, traditionally attributed to Homer. Set during the Trojan War, the ten-year siege of the city of Troy (Ilium) by a coalition of Greek states, it tells of the battles and events during the weeks of a quarrel between King Agamemnon and the warrior Achilles. Homer is the traditionally-credited creator of the Iliad and the Odyssey, revered as the greatest of Greek epic poets. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature. Theognis of Megara (Greek: Théognis ho Megareús) was a Greek lyric poet active in approximately the sixth century BC. The work attributed to him consists of gnomic poetry quite typical of the time, featuring ethical maxims and practical advice about life. We do not find any other examples of either of these works bound with or without each other anywhere else worldwide! 16th-centry printings of Theognis are extremely rare!

        Orbis descriptio

      Venezia 1561 - Copper engraving, mm 190x260. This world map is included in Ruscelli's translation of Ptolemy's Geographia, printed by Vincenzo Valgrisi. It is a slightly enlarged version of the map which appeared in Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. The map is adapted from the oval projection used in Gastaldi's larger world map and is presented on Roger Bacon's circular projection, also used by Tramezzino's large world map of 1554. No southern continent is shown. The map clearly shows the broad mass of land joining Asia and America as Terra Incognita and the coastline as Littus Incognitum. At one time, it was believed that the printer was Valgrisi, but it is now believed that the brothers Guilio and Livio Sanuto were the source of the map. Subsequent editions appear in the 1562, 1564 and 1574 editions of Ruscelli's work. The map also appears in the 1582 edition of Lorenzo D'Anania's L'Universale Fabrica Del Mondo.First state: this map is one of two that were engraved on the same plate, printed and than separated for the book. This can be seen in the atlas by the fact that the plate mark of the map runs off the top of the page. Very good condition, dark impression, light paper discoloration at centerfold.Shirley, World 110

Buen estado general, aunque el papel está oscurecido en los márgenes y en los pliegos 2D, 2K, 2L, 2V, 3A, 3F, 3G y 4O; piel de cofia y pie, perdida; falta de guarda delantera; tres primeros cuadernillos (*-b4) algo sufridos, reasentados al cuerpo, con cerco de humedad en margen superior y en la punta del primer cuadernillo; falto de hoja a4 (la segunda de la tabla en griego de los nombres de las plantas). Un poco corto de margen superior, sin llegar en ningún caso al texto.- // Proc.: Ningún dato salvo una fecha, 1663, bajo el anagrama de portada, y una ubicación, 19.1, bajo el pie de imprenta.- // Refs.: Bradley, I, 281, y III, 239; Cicogna, Insc. 4, p. 53; SBN, IT\ICCU\RMLE\006306.- // Las múltiples facetas de Francesco Sansovino, incluida la de impresor desde 1551, tienen todas el sesgo de la promoción de la lengua vernácula. Abarcan desde innumerables traducciones de clásicos y contemporáneos del griego y el latín al italiano (Aristóteles, Plutarco, Palladio, Justiniano, Sausonio, Tito Livio, San Agustín, Guicciardini, Mexia,.), hasta estudios propios, pasando por la edición literaria de antologías, la redacción de textos de carácter temático enciclopédico o la edición crítica de los grandes italianos (Dante, Bocaccio.). Fijando, por ejemplo, la atención solo en el trienio 1560-1562 que envuelve a esta obra, puede verse que Sansovino escribió una "Historia universal de los turcos sacada de los mejores autores" (que fue ampliando y corrigiendo a lo largo de los años), la antología de "Cien cuentos escogidos" (con numerosas reediciones), las "Observaciones de personajes importantes" (igualmente reeditada en numerosas ocasiones), las "Cartas de Bembo a Cardenales, príncipes y otros altos dignatarios" y las "Oraciones de hombres ilustres". al mismo tiempo que, en lo científico, publicaba el texto enciclopédico "Agricultura sacada de los mejores autores", que quiso disimular como obra de un tal Giovanni Tatti, que no era sino un seudónimo, esta enciclopedia de productos medicinales "Cuatro libros de materia médica", la traducción de la "Agricultura" de Crescencio (1561) y la de "Los Secretos medicinales" de Pietro Bairo (1562). (Más tarde, en 1577, también tradujo la "Agricultura" del español Herrera). En lo que hace a su "Materia medicinale", el primero de sus cuatro libros es un compendio de plantas y frutos con virtudes médicas elaborado por Sansovino donde cada una de las 195 variedades que incluye recoge lo que dijeron desde Dioscórides, a quien da preeminencia, hasta Crescenzio, pasando por Galeno, Plinio, Mesue, etc., acompañando cada recensión con una imagen de la planta, xilografiada con sumo detalle. Y aquí salta la sorpresa: sin ninguna duda los tacos xilográficos que utilizó fueron los que desde 1554 empleaba Vincenzo Valgrisi, diseñados a su costa por Giorgo Liberale, en sus continuas ediciones de los "Comentarios a los seis libros de materia medicinal de Dioscórides" de Mattioli (ver nuestra ficha C-0083). Inaudito, porque (./.) El repertorio de Sansovino es raro en comercio y tanto los ejemplares que ocasionalmente aparecen, como la mayoría de los conservados en bibliotecas, poseen fecha de 1562 en portada y colofón. Este que ofrecemos presenta, sin embargo, portada y colofón datados en 1561. Se trata, sin duda, de un ejemplar de la tirada preliminar.

Valles, como Erasmo, era contrario a la transmisión del saber dogmático y al método escolástico y, como Erasmo, creía que la mayoría de los profesores de su tiempo se limitaban a repetir doctrinas dándolas por ciertas y a hacerlas repetir a sus estudiantes. Ambos tenían la peor de las consideraciones posibles sobre el funcionamiento de la enseñanza universitaria de su tiempo. Para Valles, en Medicina se requería cotejar lo que estaba dicho sobre las diferentes enfermedades y sus posibles terapias con los síntomas y las reacciones observadas por uno mismo en casos reales de la misma enfermedad, tanto si las observaciones ratificaban las recogidas en los textos de Hipócrates, de Galeno y de los comentaristas anteriores, especialmente Avicena, como si esas observaciones informaban de aspectos no recogidos o, especialmente, si ofrecían contradicciones. De ese modo, frente a los libros de Medicina que se limitaban a interpretar los asertos de los clásicos, los libro valiosos tenían que incluir comentarios que, dando cuenta de ese conjunto de evidencias, expusieran las conclusiones que podieran deducirse teniendo en cuenta, además, las observaciones que otros médicos del momento hubieran dado a conocer de esas mismas enfermedades y manifestaciones fisiológicas. Así, desde el punto de vista heurístico, por la preponderancia que otorgaba al valor de la observación clínica, Valles se mostraba más hipocrático que galénico. Por eso Valles encaró ambos legados acometiendo la tarea de traducir de nuevo los textos originales del griego (al latín) y de comentarlos con ese patrón humanista que él mismo exigía tanto en el ejercicio de la labor científica, como en el de la labor didáctica. Un ejemplo palmario es esta primera edición, impresa en 1561, de sus traducciones y comentarios de los "Aforismos" y del librito "Del Alimento" de Hipócrates. Resulta especialmente relevante la traducción del tratadito "Del Alimento", al que durante la edad media se había prestado una atención menor debido a que Galeno había afirmado en su día que no era de Hipócrates. Esa marginación está en el origen de apenas hubiese versiones latinas y que, de ese modo, Valles pudiera decir que lo sacaba de la oscuridad. De hecho, sin duda por torpeza nuestra, solo localizamos una versión anterior a la de Valles; la que Janus Cornarius incluyó, sin comentar su contenido, en sus ediciones de "Hippocratis omnium longe principis, opera quad apud nos extant omnia", desde 1546.

        La Geografia di Tolomeo nuovamente tradotta di Greco in Italiano, da Ruscelli, con espositioni del medesimo o modo di far la descrittione di tutto il mondo Aggiuntovi un pieno discorso di M. Gioseppe Meleto

      Venice: appresso Vincenzo Valgrisi, 1561. 3 parts in one volume, quarto. (9 x 6 1/8 inches). Letterpress general title and two section titles, 1p. errata at back. 64 double-page engraved maps (28 according to Ptolemaic geography including 1 world map, 36 'modern' maps including 2 world maps and 7 others relating to the Americas), 12 woodcut illustrations or diagrams, woodcut printer's device on titles, and verso of the third world map "Carta Marina nuova tavola" (minor staining at lower corners in the first part of the Geografia section, minor worming at inner margins touching the first few maps of the final part of the Geografia). Contemporary vellum over pasteboard. Housed in a modern black morocco-backed box, spine gilt Provenance: "R.D.M." (early ink stamps to title) Important first edition of Ruscelli's Italian translation of Ptolemy's Geographia, with the original maps superbly re-engraved and enlarged and with new maps added: a pleasing, unsophisticated copy in contemporary vellum. This "new and important edition" (Sabin) of Ptolemy also includes the first publication of Ruscelli's own Espositioni et Introduttioni Universali… sopra tutta la Geografia di Tolomeo. Con XXXVI. nuove tavole… cosi del mondo conosciuto dagli antichi, come del nuovo. Con la carta da navicare, & con piu alter, as well as a short work by Giuseppe Moleto Discorso Universale … nel quale son raccolti, & dichiarati tutti i termini, & tutte le regole appartenenti alla Geografia. The maps are slightly enlarged versions of those of Jacopo Gastaldo (which had previously appeared in Mattioli's 1548 translation of Ptolemy) with several notable additions. Amongst the most important of these is the second appearance (and first widely circulated) of the famed Zeno map. It shows Greenland connected to Norway in the north, and two land masses which are believed to correspond to Labrador and Newfoundland. The map was first published in Venice in 1558 by Nicolo Zeno, a descendant of a person by the same name, Nicolo Zeno, of the Zeno brothers. The younger Zeno published the map, along with a series of letters, with the claim that he had discovered them in a storeroom in his family's house in Venice. According to his claim, the map and letters were made around the year 1400 and purport to describe a voyage by the Zeno brothers made in the 1390s under the direction of a prince named Zichmni. The voyage supposedly traversed the North Atlantic and, according to some interpretations, reached North America. Among the other maps are ten of American interest, including a general map of South America; a detailed map of Brazil; another of Mexico, Baja California, the Gulf Coast and Florida; a map of New England; one of Cuba; and one of Hispaniola. The map of Mexico and the Gulf Coast is of considerable importance. Its appearance in the first Gastaldi edition marked the first map devoted to New Spain to appear in an atlas. That issue, though an improvement over previous depictions, included errors such as showing the Yucatan peninsula as an island. The present Ruscelli edition, however included several important corrections and improvements, including the correct mapping of the Yucatan. "The place names along the upper Gulf Coast revealed the explorations of Pineda, Cabeza de Vaca, and Moscosso, and the Mississippi, here shown as the Rio de Spiritu Santo was carefully depicted" (Martin & Martin).

        Works. The Woorkes of Geffrey Chaucer, Newly Printed, with Divers Addicions, whiche were Never in Printe Before: With the siege and destruccion of the worthy citee of Thebes, compiled by Jhon Lidgate, Monke of Berie. As in the table more plainly dooeth appere. First issue of the Stowe Edition.

      London: John Kyngston for Jhon Wight. Very Good. 1561. Fifth edition, first issue; First. Full calf. First issue of the Stowe Edition with Chaucer's arms dated 1560 and before later woodcut additions. Relative to the precedence of issues of the 1561 Stowe edition David R. Carlson ("The Woodcut Illustrations in Early Printed Editions of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales," in Chaucer Illustrated: Five Hundred Years of The Canterbury Tales in Pictures [British Library, 2003]) states "the most plausible explanation seems to be that the printer and publisher of the [Stowe] edition, came into possession of the woodcuts belatedly after most of the press work for the edition had been done. After obtaining the blocks, they ran up a new issue of the beginning of the book, incorporating a "General Prologue" illustrated with woodcut. In all documented cases, the unillustrated [i.e. first]"General Prologue" occurs with a title page showing the Chaucer arms, dated 1560 at the top of the shield. A different title-page, dated 1561, is found in copies incorporating the [woodcut] illustrated General PrologueÂ…." (v. also David R. Carlson, "Woodcut Illustrations of the Canterbury Tales, 1483-1602). More specifically a recent Robert Temple Catalogue adds: "The first three gatherings [in the 1561 second issue] Â… were entirely reprinted, this being done to permit the inclusion of twenty-two wood-cut illustrations in the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales the signatures running [floret]4 ([floret]iii being mis-signed Aiii), +6, A4, B - I6. instead of the [floret]4, A - I6. of the [first] issue. In the illustrated [i.e. second] issue some damage to the wood-cut frame of the first secondary title is apparent which is not evident in the [first] issue: a crack in the wood extends from the centre of the lower edge, up through the box identifying King Henry IIII to just left of centre of the title box, and another from the top left-hand corner of the title-box, through the box identifying King Henry VII and ending, apparently at a worm-hole, in its top rules. STC, 2nd edition, unaccountably and without assigning a reason, lists these two issues in the reverse order - despite the evidence in the illustrated issue of the later date on the title-page, the obviously interpolated gathering `+' (which contains the first six illustrated leaves of ten, the rest being in the variant, short, gathering `A'), and the extended splitting of the wood-block on the title-page to the Canterbury Tales which shows only a slight split at the extreme tail in the [first] printing, and no worm-hole." Professional restoration to the present copy include wash and repair of title page with ancient replacement of top inch and periphery of same not affecting text; repapering of Prologue gutters; new pastedowns & fly papers.

        Chronographia ò reportorio de los tiempos el mas copioso y preciso que hasta ahora ha salido a luz

      Seville: Juan Guitierrez, 1561. Small quarto. (8 1/8 x 5 7/8 inches). [9], 219 leaves. Letterpress title with woodcut surround and integral woodcut portrait of the author, 67 woodcut illustrations (including a map of the New World on the verso of leaf i4, woodcut map of Eastern Hemisphere on the verso of leaf i1, 7 personifications of the planets, 12 of the zodiac stars, 1 full-page figure of a man showing the areas of influence of the stars on the body; 39 images connected with lunar and solar eclipses), numerous 4- and 6-line decorative woodcut initials. (Tears to to outer blank margin of title, g4 with early deletion in ink and resultant small hole, v1 with section of lower blank margin torn away). Contemporary limp vellum, yapp fore-edges, leather ties (small tears to spine, vellum crinkled, three ties replaced) Provenance: Episcopal Library, Cordoba, Spain (inscription at head of title "De la Biblioteca Episcopal de Cordoba"); Jesuit College, Cordoba, Spain (inscription at foot of title "Del Collegio de la compa. de [Holy Monogram] de Cordova", early ink stamp on verso, occasional marginalia); Andres Ramos (inscription "Connegido segun il Expuzgar de 1707 / Andres Ramos" on leaf following title) The extremely rare fourth edition of Chaves's important early work on chronography and astronomy, featuring an early map of the New World. The first three editions were all printed in Seville, and published in 1548, 1550 and 1554. Chaves was a distinguished mathematician, cosmographer, and poet living in Seville, and the first occupant of the chair for cosmography at the Casa de Contractacion. He was one of the first cosmographers to publish a map of the New World, appearing on the verso of leaf 68 in this edition. Chaves's New World map is an early and notable map of North and South America. Burden notes that the map "does show knowledge of some of the latest geographical findings; the Gulf of California and Cartier's expeditions in Canada. The Yucatan is correctly shown as a peninsula." The map is surrounded by twelve named windheads. The map of the Eastern Hemisphere names the continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa. The illustrations include several representations of solar eclipses with their future dates of occurrence up until 1600, as well as astrological symbols (with attendant tables). European Americana states that the first Gutierrez edition printed in Seville appeared in 1566, inexplicably neglecting to note the present edition. The present edition is listed in Palau, who also locates a copy in the British Museum that is without a date but is assumed to be 1561. OCLC and NUC together locate only four additional copies of this 1561 edition, at the University of Arizona, Dartmouth, Indiana University, and the John Carter Brown Library. Very rare, and with an important map. Adams C-1422; BM STC (Spanish), p.23; Burden 15; JCB 1:211; Medina (BHA) 186; Palau 67452; OCLC 2471493; Shirley 86A.

        The workes of Geffrey Chaucer, newlie printed, with diuers addicions, whiche were neuer in print before: with the siege and destruccion of the worthy citee of Thebes, compiled by Ihon Lidgate, Monke of Berie...

      [London: Pr. by Jhon [sic] Kyngston for Jhon [sic] Wight Folio (33.7 cm, 13.25"). [4], CCCLXVII ff. (lacking 6 prelim. ff., incl. t.-p., and "General Prologue"; pagination erratic; CCCLXXVIII lacking but supplied in facsimile).. 1561] Early edition of the first comprehensive collection of Chaucer's works — along with several spurious pieces. This is the fourth edition of the Workes, following the first of 1532, which included the first printed appearances of a number of Chaucer's verse and prose pieces, among them the Book of the Duchess and the Legend of Good Women. Editor William Thynne examined a number of manuscripts and printed versions in order to provide what he considered the most accurate renditions possible of the texts; his work helped to shape and direct the Renaissance perspective on Chaucer and his canon. That the text is printed in double columns of => black-letter — this being late for that, except in realms of serious law or theology — will have lent it an air of "auctorite" and, perhaps, of pleasantly suitable archaism for its original readers; the printer has also supplied => decorative woodcut initials in a variety of sizes, some historiated, some signed "I.R.," and one with a backwards "N," while the "Knight's Tale" opens with => a large woodcut of the armored knight, mounted and with jousting lance in hand. The Romaunt of the Rose is marked by a separate title-page with an elaborate border depicting the genealogy of Henry VIII using the tree motif. As the title-page and prologue are not present in this copy, it is difficult to ascertain which of the two variant states of this edition is represented here. Period-style mottled calf framed in double blind fillets, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped author and date; front free endpaper with recent pencilled annotations. 6 preliminary leaves (including title-page), first part of text through "General Prologue," and final leaf (CCCLXXVIII) lacking, the latter supplied both in facsimile of original printing and in 18th-century inked manuscript! First four leaves with upper portions repaired, with loss of two paragraphs of "Eight Goodly Questions" (which is bound in between two leaves of the preface), two and a half paragraphs of Hoccleve's "To the Kings Most Noble Grace," about 14 lines of Thynne's dedication to Henry VIII, and upper portions of the table of contents; tear to first page of the "Knight's Tale" neatly repaired from rear. Pages age-toned, some from the midpoint onwards with waterstaining across text, noticeable but never dark nor obscuring; otherwise the mostly marginal inksmear, chip/tear at an edge, or expectable soiling only. Several paper flaws, one significant and with the printing accomplished over it in instructive fashion; in some sections, apparent bad inking for the press with light spots and dark ones scattered; pagination notably erratic, with some numerals skipped and some repeated. Occasional instances of early inked annotations and marks of emphasis, particularly in the Romaunt, including long lines drawn marginally and across text. Imperfect ("read hard," when young?) and priced to reflect that; but still a Chaucerian high spot featuring all the tales of the Canterbury Tales and many other important pieces, the array set forth in => the 16th century's "antique" style.

        GABUCCINI ou GABUCINI (Girolamo)

      1561 1158 - Venetiis, Aldus [Paul Manuce], 1561, , in-4 [155 x 212 mm], [4]-99-[17] feuillets (signatures *4, A-Z4, AA-FF4), vélin souple de l'époque, titre en long manuscrit au dos, Première édition de cet ouvrage, l'un des premiers traités complets sur l'épilepsie. Il est issu de l'imprimerie aldine de Paul Manuce, avec la marque typographique à l'ancre au titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Très rare. Contre les opinions populaires et théologiques de son temps, Gabuccini met l'accent sur le caractère "naturel" de l'épilepsie. Gabuccini, médecin italien du milieu du XVIe siècle, élève de A. Theodosio, fut également l'auteur du premier traité sur le ver solitaire (De lumbricis almum occupantibus. Venise, Scotus, 1547). Ses ouvrages sont remarquables par leurs nombreuses observations pathologiques et anatomiques. Gabuccini détermina entre autres, à la suite de son maître, que le tournis chez le mouton était causé par la présence d'un ver (le cénure) dans le cerveau. Quelques rousseurs pâles. Renouard, Annales de l'imprimerie des Alde I, p. 329 (n° 11). Wellcome I, n° 2484. Hirsch II, p. 650. NLM 16th, p. 206. Dezeimeris II, p 424. Temkin, The Falling Sickness (1971), page 144.

Kalikut [not Kilikut]?-role on both covers. Initials LWC on upper cover. [Some information on the iconography of that strange role would be wellcomed. The idea seems to be the difference between the wise and the foolish king.]Valerius: 96 ff. Some contemporary notes on 4b, a8b, b1a+b. Valerius (1512-1578) taught in Louvain/Belgium, and published a number of very widespread textbooks on natural philosophy, ethics, rhetorics, logic, astronomy and geography. This edition not in Risse, Bibl. log., Adams and BL/STC.Luetanus: a-n8: (106) ff., last blank. Full-page printer?s mark on n7b. Luetanus in his dedication letter to the senate of Noviomagus - written march 1562 in Vienna - calls himself Dialecticae Ordinario Professore. The letter is surely dedicated to the senate of his native town - but which of the many Noviomagus this may be I could not figure out. Beside the logic Luetanus published school books on rhetorics, natural philosophy, some speeches and poems, all around 1560 published in Vienna (Origo tumultuum, quibus totus cincutitur orbis: poetice descripta; Oratio de nobilitate, held in the great hall of the university; a poem on war and peace, and some other works). First edition. Rare. Mayer, Wiens Buchdrucker-Geschichte I,92; Risse, Bibl. log.
