      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: Left and upper margin replaced; Splendourful representation of 6 Epipactis, or Helleborine, a genus of terrestrial orchids consisting of approximately 70 species. This genus is abbreviated as Epcts in horticultural trade 1.edition of the Hortus Eystettensis, printed and issued from Basilius Besler in Nuremberg 1613. 2013 was the 400 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 Besler's 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 bishopÕs 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 La [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]

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.

"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."

        Progne. Tragedia di Lodovico Domenichi.

      In Fiorenza, appresso i Giunti, 1561, - in-8, pp. 68 (i.e. 66), [1], leg. post. cart. rustico. Marca tipogr. sul front., iniziali silogr. istoriate. Prima edizione. Sebbene nel frontespizio sia considerata come lavoro originale del Domenichi si tratta di una traduzione letterale della omonima tragedia latina composta a soli 18 anni da Gregorio Correr, e pubblicata anonima a Venezia nel 1558 da Paolo Manuzio (in Academia Veneta). Il Correr (1409-1464) ricevette un'ottima educazione letteraria alla scuola mantovana di Vittorino da Feltre e insieme ai figli del Marchese di Mantova alla corte dei Gonzaga; fu letterato e seguì la corte pontificia nei suoi vari spostamenti; poco prima di morire fu nominato Patriarca di Venezia. Il Domenichi fu uno dei sommi volgarizzatori ed editori di testi classici per Giolito, lo Scotto ed i Giunti. La tragedia, dedicata a Giannotto Castiglione, è tratta da fonti di Seneca e Ovidio, in versi, senza divisione in atti. Edizione piuttosto rara. Buon esempl., seppur corto in alto con qualche lieve rifilo. Allacci 648. Clubb 391. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Quarta edizione (prima Venezia, Zoppino 1534) di questo fortunato trattato popolare di aritmetica pratica, utile strumento per la gestione degli affari dei mercanti del XVI secolo. L'uso diffuso nel XVI secolo del volume come manuale aritmetico fa sì che, benché ristampato 7 volte, tutte le edizioni siano oggi estremamente rare.

Reliure signée Chambolle-Duru. 196 X 142 mm. TRES RARE EDITION PLANTIN COMPLETE DE L’UN DES PLUS CELEBRES ROMANS DE CHEVALERIE. Elle est ornée de gravures sur bois dans le texte. Brunet I, 216 ; Graesse, I, 95 ; J. Gay, 440 ; De Backer, Romans de chevalerie, n°102. « Edition copiée sur celle de Paris 1540-1556 ; les figures ont été gravées à nouveau. A la fin de chaque livre (sauf deux) se trouve la mention : De l’Imprimerie de Christophle Plantin, 1560 » » (De Backer). « Ce roman eut une grande vogue et, même aujourd’hui, il est encore regardé comme le meilleur et le plus amusant de tous les livres de chevalerie, surtout les premiers volumes traduits par des Essarts » (Jules Gay). C’est sur ordre du roi François Ier qui avait lu le texte en espagnol pendant sa captivité à Madrid que fut entreprise la traduction, ou plutôt l’adaptation, et la continuation en français de cette suite romanesque. Nicolas de Herberay, seigneur des Essarts, est l’inventeur de l’Amadis. Il répondait à l’attente d’une société de cour et de lecteurs, las de relire les mises en prose des romans médiévaux en caractères gothiques, illustrés le plus souvent de bois usés. Monument de la langue française, son adaptation inaugure la grande prose littéraire moderne. « Vous pouvez y cueillir toutes les belles fleurs de notre langue française », s’exclame Etienne Pasquier. Au surplus, il entendait donner à la France son roman, comme Ronsard son épopée. On doit à ce gentilhomme picard les huit premiers livres dont la publication s’étend de 1540 à 1548. Claude Colet donne un livre IX ; Gohery produit un Xe et XIe livre, des aventures de Diane, naturellement dédié à Diane de Poitiers. Le XIIe livre est mis en œuvre par G. Aubert. « Jamais livre ne fut embrassé avec autant de ferveur », écrit encore Etienne Pasquier. Le Ve livre est un Americana où l’auteur anticipe l’or de la Californie. Il est fait mention pour la première fois d’un « pais très opulent et fertile », situé « à la partie droite des Indes », gouverné par Calasie, reine des Amazones. On y trouve « grande abondance d’or & pierres précieuses ». Il s’agit de la Californie. Découverte en 1542 par Cabrillo, elle sera ainsi baptisée quelques décennies plus tard en référence au mythe suscité par l’Amadis. TRES BEL ET PRECIEUX EXEMPLAIRE CONSERVE DANS SA RELIURE EN MAROQUIN ROUGE DOUBLE DE MAROQUIN BLEU A DENTELLE AUX ARMES DU baron de Mello, REALISEE PAR Chambolle-Duru.

        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.

        Isola Cuba Nova

      Venezia 1561 - Copper engraving, mm 180x245. Engraved by Livio and Giulio Sanudo. Scarce first edition of one of the first separate maps of Cuba. Also includes Jamaica and northwestern Hispaniola and the Cayman Islands. It is a slightly enlarged version of the map which appeared in Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy thirteen years earlier. From Ptolemy's Geographia, edited by Ruscelli, published in Venice in multiple editions between 1561 and 1598.The peculiarity of these maps is that two maps were engraved on one plate together and later 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. In 1574 a new plate was used which lasted until the final edition of 1599The text of Ruscelli and his maps are considered as the best modern atlas before the first version of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius of 1570. Very good example, strong impression, light paper discoloration at centerfold.Kapp, Capt. Kit S., in MCC #24 The Printed Maps of Jamaica, #2

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. Vous avez este tousjours en bonrepos. Et demeurez fermes en caste conclusion
