        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. First issue of the Stow Edition with Chaucer's arms dated 1560 and before the second issue woodcut additions. There are two theories regarding the precedence of issues of the 1561 Stowe edition depending on presence of woodcuts in the Prologue; one issue without woodcuts and one with. 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 (challenging the old orthodoxy of Pforzheimer) "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 Prologue…." (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] … 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. All that said, a complete copy without loss of text. Light peripheral worming. Handsomely bound in appropriate period style full ruled English calf, five raised bands, six compartments; morocco title & date labels. This copy was presented by the Durants to Wellesley College (their diminutive blind stamp to the margin of the second leaf) then sold in 1912 to George Herbert Palmer & then to Lewis Kennedy Morse. Folio, 12 3/16 x 8 1/2 inches (310 x 215 mm); [x], ccclxxviii leaves. Divisional title pages of the "Caunterburie Tales" and "Romaunt of the Rose" (both from Edward Hall's 1550 Vnion of the two noble and illustre famelies of Lancastre & Yorke) in ornamental border (McKerrow & Ferguson, 75), showing the ascent of Henry VIII. Large woodcut of the Knight at the head of his tale (recto of B1) flanked by two wood-cuts of pillars re-used from the quarto edition of the 1537 Coverdale Bible. Collation: Floret4; A-I6; K-U6; Aa-Ii6. Kk-Pp6; Q-U6; X-Z6; Aaa-Iii6; Kkk-Uuu[8]. Numerous oddities in foliation (for which see Pforzheimer, 176) though catchwords and signatures remain constant. A handsome & supple folio in sixes copy beautifully printed in fifty-five line, two-column black-letter Gothic. The 1561 Stowe edition is probably the one known to William Shakespeare and Edmund Spenser and presents some nineteen poems here first printed from manuscript sources.

        De vocis auditusq[ue] organis historia anatomica singulari fide methodo ac industria concinnata tractatibus duobus explicata ...(Colophons: Ferrara, Victorius Baldinus, 1601 & "1600" [= 1601]). 2 parts in 1 volume. Royal folio (40.5 x 27.5 cm). Engraved title-page with the title in a large oval scrollwork cartouche surrounded by and incorporating dozens of skeletons and skulls of people and animals, 2 full-page engraved portraits (of the dedicatee Ranuccio I Farnese, Duke of Parma, and the author) and 34 full-page anatomical engravings on integral leaves. 17th-century sheepskin parchment.

      Garrison & Morton 286; Krivatsky 2199; LeFanu, Notable medical books, p. 57; Norman 410; Roberts & Tomlinson, pp. 259-263; Wellcome 1333. Beautiful first edition of a ground-breaking work on the anatomy of the vocal and auditory organs, written by the well-known anatomist and surgeon Giulio Casserio (1561?-1616). It was his first publication and contains 2 separate treatises that were issued together, the first on the anatomy of the larynx and the second on hearing and the anatomy of the ear. Although the colophon of the first part is dated 1601 and that of the second part 1600, the second treatise also refers to observations made in 1601. Casserio made some important contributions to the science of the anatomy of the sense organs, particularly the vocal and auditory organs. He based much of his work on zoötomic research and many of the 34 large and beautifully designed engravings show zoötomic subjects, including the vocals organs of a grasshopper, a dog, a rat and a frog. His research covered both the superficial and deep muscles and includes the first precise description of the two cricothyroid muscles.With 3 owners' inscriptions at the foot of the title-page, 2 struck through but partly legible and the third reading "ex libri Francisci Ardinone". With some marginal worm holes and a water stain in the gutter margin of the first 3 preliminary quires and an occasional leaf with browned patches, but still a good copy and with large margins. The binding has some stains, minor abrasions, and repairs to the upper part of the spine, but is also still good. An important and magnificent medical work with spectacular anatomical engravings.

        Della Grandezza della Terra et Dell'acqua

      Venice: Giordano Ziletti, 1561. Small quarto, with woodcut diagrams in the text; minor staining to last (colophon) leaf and a few margins towards end; a very good copy in later patterned boards. The water and the land. A treatise on the globe and a survey of contemporary cosmographical knowledge and methodology by a well-known Italian astronomer and cosmographer. A senior figure in the church, a poet, and a writer on philosophy and science, Piccolomini (1508-1578) was appointed archbishop of Patrasso in 1557 and later archbishop of Siena. Piccolomini's Trattato is of interest to the history of antipodean theories: it was in this book that he most strongly argued his views about the make-up of the earth, contradicting the views associated with Aristotle and Ptolemy that there must be more water than land. His belief that the land mass must be greater than the oceans was more than just a disagreement with the classical writers, as it became a controversy played out in print between Piccolomini and his contemporaries Antonio Berga and Giambattista Bennedetti. Several of the 14 chapters here are devoted to the debate (the last, for example, is headed 'Digressione contra una vana imaginatione d'uno scrittore moderno, con laquale si pensa salvare la terra minore dell'acqua…'). The work contains several substantial references to newly-discovered lands, mentioning the Straits of Magellan along with several other references to the Americas, and discusses the Southern Ocean. Alden notes the 1558 edition of this work, but does not mention this one which has an identical collation.

      Venice: [Francesco Sansovino, , 1561]. Venice: [Francesco Sansovino, 1561] Contemporary stiff vellum with gilt red morocco label, edges stained blue. . Quarto. Woodcut device on title. Originally published in Latin, the translator is Donato Acciaiuoli (1429-1478), whose Italian version was first published in Venice in 1476. Leonardo Bruni (1370-1444) was an Italian scholar and statesman, who served as chancellor of Florence and as spostolic secretary to four popes (1405-1414). His Florentine history has been called the first modern history book (James Haskins in his edition of History of the Florentine People, Harvard University Press, 2010). He was the first historian to write using the three-period view of history: Antiquity, Middle Ages, and Modern, and though his dates were a bit different from those used by modern historians, he laid the foundation for this tripartite view of history, which is secular in nature, even though that may not have been what Bruni intended. He used the phrase studia humanitatis, meaning the study of human endeavors, as distinct from theology and metaphysics. This is where the term humanist comes from. Bruni also translated into Latin many works of Greek philosophy, such as Aristotle and Procopius.

London: in Aedibus Richardi Totteli, 1561. [iv], cccxxvi ff. Folio (11-1/4" x 7-3/4"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Title page printed within handsome woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials. Some toning, light browning to a few leaves, tiny wormholes in a few places. Light soiling to title page and verso of final leaf, minor edgewear to preliminaries and final few leaves. Ex-library. "3277" in early hand to head of title page, stamp to verso and verso of final leaf. An attractive copy. * Later edition, one of two issued by Tottell in 1561. A selection of reports for 1-50 Edward III (1327-1377), the Book of Assizes, is one of the most important of the Year Books and of unique value to the study of English legal history. As Stanley Milsom has observed, it is the "only collection of reports from the country," that is the only collection of reports from the justices on assize (circuit) rather than in the central courts at Westminster. It is therefore "rich in apparent curiosities" because "it reports processes we do not otherwise see, on circuit, before juries." The first edition was printed in 1514 by John Rastell. OCLC locates 5 copies of the 1561 edition (both issues) in North American law libraries (Columbia, Harvard, NY Law Institute, University of Pennsylvania, York University).

Wie das Keiserthumb nach niedergang der Sonnen / ein wenig wider zu recht sey gebracht worden. Gedruckt durch Peter Seitz (d. Jüngere) Bibliogr. Nachweis: VD 16 P 4655. In dem vorliegenden Exemplar ist kein Holzschnittporträt enthalten. Prätorius, Paul, geb. 1521 in Bernau, studirte in Frankfurt a/O., ward Rector in seiner Vaterstadt, dann, wie es scheint, auch eine Zeitlang in Berlin. Dort erwählte ihn Kurfürst Joachim II. 1547 zum Erzieher für seine jung nacheinander zu Erzbischöfen von Magdeburg postulirten Söhne Friedrich (geb. 1530, 1552) und Sigismund (geb. 1538, 1566), in deren Interesse er auch zu diplomatischen Missionen verwandt wurde, wie z. B. 1561 nach Prag an Kaiser Ferdinand, welcher ihm den Adel verlieh. Er starb 1564 oder 1565 in Halle. - Der ihm nahe befreundete, vielleicht verwandte Abdias Prätorius (s. oben) widmete ihm seine Schrift "De phrasibus Ebraeorum" (Mittenberg bei Joh. Lufft, 1561, die Vorrede vom 18. Januar 1557), Georg Sabinus sein Buch "Epigramme"; der Humanist Michel Haslob (s. A. D. B. X, 745) verfaßte: "Praetoriana, sive de vita et obitu Pauli Praetorii", Francof. 1581. - Da ihm aus seiner Ehe nur eine Tochter erwachsen war, so adoptirte er 1562 eines Bernauer Predigers Sohn, Samuel Faber (Schmidt), der 1605 als Bürgermeister in Frankfurt a/O. gestorben ist. Dessen Enkel Johannes P. erhielt 1661 mit der böhmischen Ritterwürde den Namen Praetorius von Richthofen und ward der Stammvater des noch heute blühenden Geschlechtes dieses Namens.

        Opus de arcanis catholicae veritatis [...]. Ad haec, Ioannis Reuchlini de Arte Cabalistica, libri tres.

      Basel, Johann Herwagen, 1561.. (18) SS., 1 w. Bl., 551 (recte: 549), (4), 552-651, (41) SS. Mit 3 Holzschnittdruckermarken. Blindgepr. Schweinslederband der Zeit auf 4 Doppelbünden mit hs. Rückentitel und 2 intakten Schließen. Folio (230:340 mm).. Zweiter Druck bei Herwagen (zuvor 1550); erstmals 1518 in Ortona erschienen. Der Verfasser "vertheidigt den Katholicismus gegen das Judenthum und vertheidigt auch zugleich Reuchlin gegen die Angriffe seiner Zeitgenossen" (Fürst). Galatinos Hauptwerk wurde auf Befehl des Papstes und des Kaisers verfaßt als Antwort auf Reuchlins "Augenspiegel", nachdem die Kontroverse um die Autorität der jüdischen Schriften immer größere Bedeutung annahm. Galatino versuchte, die Kabbala gegen die Juden zu wenden, und suchte darin Beweise für die Wahrheit der christlichen Religion. Der gelehrte Dialog zwischen Capnio (Reuchlin) und dem Inquisitor Jacob van Hoogstraaten ist mit hebräischen Textstellen und Zitaten gespickt. - Am Ende des Bandes steht der Abdruck von Reuchlins berühmter Abhandlung "De arte cabbalistica", erstmals 1517 erschienen aber der Erstausgabe noch nicht beigegeben. Dieses philosophisch-kabbalistische Hauptwerk Reuchlins ist in der Form einer Unterredung zwischen drei Männern geschrieben: Im Gespräch zwischen dem Juden Simon, dem Muslim Marranus und dem Pythagoreer Philolaus, das zu Frankfurt am Main, Simons Wohnsitz, stattfindet, geht es Reuchlin um eine Harmonisierung der Kabbala mit dem Christentum (daher auch die Widmung an Papst Leo. X. - vgl. ausf. M. Brod, J. Reuchlin und sein Kampf [1965], S. 271-311). - Sehr sauberes, außerordentlich wohlerhaltenes Exemplar. Der nahezu tadellose Einband mit schönen Reformatoren-, Tugenden- und Wappen- bzw. Köpferollen; dort im Schild signiert mit dem Monogramm "CH" und von Haebler (I, 168ff.) mit hoher Wahrscheinlichkeit dem Augsburger Buchbinder Caspar Honeffer zugewiesen. Aus der Bibliothek der Innsbrucker Kapuziner mit entspr. hs. Besitzvermerk am Titel; später in der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek in Hall/Tirol mit entspr. Titelstempelung. Der kaiserliche Protonotar Florian Waldauf (auch: Baldauf; um 1450-1510; 1495 in Antwerpen Gegenzeichner des Vorvertrags zur habsburgisch-spanischen Doppelhochzeit) und seine Frau Barbara hatten 1501 der Pfarrkirche in Hall eine Marienkapelle, eine Reliquiensammlung und ein Predigtamt gestiftet. Die Stadt Hall als Verwalterin der Waldauf-Stiftung hatte dafür zu sorgen, "das alle jar etliche puecher nach anzaigen des predigers zum predigambt gekauft und in der heiligen capellen liberei an ketten gehangen und versorgt werden"; ferner sollten der Bibliothek Bücher aus den Nachlässen der Prediger und Meßkapläne zukommen. Entgegen der Anordnung Waldaufs wurde die Bibliothek kaum durch gezielte Ankäufe vermehrt, sondern größtenteils durch die zufällige Übernahme von Büchern und Schenkungen, hauptsächlich von Geistlichen, Stiften und Schülern. Der bekannteste Vorbesitzer ist Johannes Eck. "Nach 400 Jahren ihres Bestehens und nur fallweisem Zuwachs schien das Interesse am Fortbestand der Ritter-Waldauf-Bibliothek als geschlossener Sammlung verlorenzugehen. Obendrein war das Stiftungsvermögen im Ersten Weltkrieg vollends untergegangen. Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs wurde eine unbekannte Anzahl wertvoller Handschriften und Drucke an Privatpersonen in Hall und Umgebung ausgehändigt, um sie vor der Beschlagnahmung durch die Nationalsozialisten zu sichern. Nach Kriegsende wurde jedoch keines dieser Bücher rückerstattet" (Hdb. der hist. Buchbestände in Dtl.). - Sehr selten; seit 1950 kein anderes Exemplar auf Auktionen nachweisbar. - VD 16, C 4616.

        Septentrionalivm Partivm Nova Tabvla

      Venice, Ruscelli, Girolamo, 1561. North Atlantic. "Septentrionalium Partium Nova Tabula". Orig. copper-engraving from G. Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geography. Published in Venice, 1561. This map is a reduced version of the Nicolo Zeno map of 1558. With title above the map. 20,5:26 cm.. Burden: The Mapping of North America, nr. 29 - A map of the northern part of the Atlantic ocean with Greenlad and Iceland. Girolamo Ruscelli's edition of Ptolemy's Geographia included newly engraved copperplates by Giulio and Livio Sanuti. The curious fact is that 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.

Er rühmt sich, dieses Verfahren als erster auf den Brückenbau angewendet zu haben u. hält es gegenüber anderen Verfahren für vorteilhafter, wenn sich die Bogenweite nicht über 120 rheinländ. Fuß (ca. 38 m) erstreckt. Nach diesem Verfahren hatte er 1799 bis 1800 in Minden die sog. "Bunte Brücke" über die Weser erbaut (Weite der sechs Öffnungen je 45 Fuß).

        Il disegno della seconda parte dell' Asia.

      Venice, 1561.. Engraved map, printed from two copper plates (780 x 505 mm).. First edition of the most sought-after map of the region. "The first modern map of the Arabian peninsula" (Al-Ankary). After Gastaldi's small map of 1548, this large wall map on joint sheets is regarded as the first "modern" map of Arabia and served as a model for all further mapping of the peninsula until the 19th century. Gastaldi is regarded as "the most important 16th century Italian cartographer. His maps are very rare, as they were issued separately to order and were not part of atlas" (Al-Quasimi). Gastaldi used various sources including Portolan charts of the region drawn by the 16th-century Portuguese explorers. Many details, such as the coastline of the Arabian Gulf, certain coastal towns, or the peninsula of Qatar, are mapped and named for the first time. It is the most valuable among the early maps of the region. "Although the shape of the peninsula is distorted by modern standards, the Qatar peninsula and Bahrain are both shown - details that are missing on some maps produced up to almost 300 years later" (Stuart McMinn Catalogue). - Tibbets 28.

Dove s'ha piena notitia delle genti della Gottia, della Norvegia, della Svevia, e di quelle che vivono sotto la Tramontana. Con due Tavole. L'una de' Capitoli, l'altra delle cose mirabili. In Vinegia, Appresso Francesco Bindoni, 1561.

      In 8, [mm. 153 x 103], pp. (44) ? 511 ? (1). In pergamena floscia coeva, rinforzata posteriormente con pagina di codice in volgare; legatura allentata. Al frontespizio marca tipografica raffigurante una mano che esce da una nuvola, con un serpente avvolto intorno al polso che sorregge un candeliere con due rami di olivo e di alloro. Sopra il candeliere c'è un occhio umano. Grande capolettera figurato e testata xilografate all'inizio della dedicatoria. Altre iniziali ornate all'inizio di ogni libro. Vecchio restauro al frontespizio ricollegato al risguardo con una brachetta e a p. 319 che è riattaccata alla carta seguente. Piccolo strappo al margine di queste carte. Qualche macchia, ma buon esemplare di questa opera fondamentale. Olav Manson latinizzato in Olaus Magnus nacque nel 1490 a Linkoping e dopo gli studi in Germania fece, in qualità di legato pontificio un lungo viaggio nella Svezia del nord fu quindi segretario del fratello Giovanni Magno che era divenuto vescovo di Uppsala. Inviato in Italia, a causa della riforma luterana non tornò più in patria. Dopo un periodo a Danzica si trasferì a Venezia dove nel 1539 pubblicò una grande carta composta da nove xilografie dei mari settentrionali da lui disegnata, che per prima tratteggia i paesi nordici dando i nomi di luoghi fino a quel momento sconosciuti con note in italiano e tedesco, della quale esistono solo due esemplari originali. Sei anni prima aveva pubblicato una vita di Santa Brigida e poi nel 1555 la prima edizione della sua opera più importante la Historia de gentibus septentrionalis. Nel 1544 fu nominato vescovo di Upsala ma non raggiunse mai la sua sede, partecipando al Concilio di Trento. Morì a Roma nel 1557. L'opera tradotta in questa edizione per la prima volta in italiano da Remigio Fiorentino, a dispetto del titolo, non è una storia dei popoli nordici, ma costituisce una importantissima descrizione degli usi e costumi dei popoli scandinavi appresi durante il suo lungo viaggio del 1518. I ventidue libri descrivono oltre al paese e la fauna, anche le credenze, l'alfabeto, le navi, la religione, le miniere, la lavorazione dei metalli, la fabbricazione delle armi, il modo di combattere, i giuochi, gli animali sia marini che terrestri, ma anche le leggende come i giganti per i quali racconta la storia di Starcatero, che vinse i norvegesi e il re della Russia e costituisce un testo fondamentale perla storia della Scandinavia. Nel 1565 verrà edita una seconda edizione, sempre a Venezia. Remigio Nannini più noto come Remigio Fiorentino nacque nel 1521 a Firenze. Fu un frate domenicano dl convento di Santa Maria Novella dove aveva studiato e nel 1553 conseguì la laurea in teologia. Dopo aver scritto orazioni e rime si avvicina alla storia, iniziando a volgarizzare Cornelio Nepote ed i suoi Uomini illustri e quindi Ovidio. Dopo un periodo a rimase fino alla morte avvenuta nel d Ancona andò a Venezia dove morì nel 1580 e dove collaborò a lungo con i Giolito.

        "The courtyer of Count Baldessar Castilio divided into foure bookes. Very necessary and profitatable [sic] for yonge gentilmen and gentilwomen abiding in court, palaice or place, done into Englyshe by Thomas Hoby"

      London: imprinted by Wyllyam Seres at the signe of the Hedghogg. 1561. "First edition in English, small 4to, pp. [392]; collating: A-C4 ([C4] blank wanting), A-Z4, Aa-Zz4 (Uv3 signed U3), 2 leaves unsigned (last, probably blank, and wanting); text in black letter; title within an architectural woodcut border, the bottom neatly reinforced on the verso and with 2 small chips out in the fore-margin not touching any letterpress; 18th century full mottled calf, gilt-decorated spine in 6 compartments, red morocco label in 1, all edges stained red; overall a very good, sound copy of a rare book. With the South Library bookplate, Earls of Macclesfield, with 3 small pressure stamps in the preliminaries. The single unsigned leaf at the end has a letter from Sir J. Cheke to Hoby, not reprinted in later editions, and a colophon.& & Printing and the Mind of Man 59 (citing the Aldine edition of 1528): ""'The Courtier' depicts the ideal aristocrat, and it has remained the perfect definition of a gentleman ever since. It is an epitome of the highest moral and social ideas of the Italian Renaissnce, many of them inspired by classical examples ... The book was translated into most European languages ... but its most potent influence was probably in England. In 1561 Sir Thomas Hoby published an English translation which became one of the most popular books of the Elizabethan age. Its influence can be seen frequently in Shakespeare - particularly Polonius - Spenser, Ben Jonson, Sir Philip Sidney and Robert Burton, and later in Shelley's Hymn to Intellectual Beauty. Its conversational form had a great impact on the development of English drama and comedy and in the seventeenth century two famous books on the gentlemen appeared, that by Peacham intended for the Cavaliers and that by Brathwaite intended for the Puritans. In spite of the changes in the character of courts during the eighteenth century and the great attack launched on the conception of the 'courtier' by the French Revolution, the ideal of the 'gentleman' still fortunately survives.""& & STC 4778; ESTC locates 22 copies in all, 8 inthe U.S.: Harvard, Folger, Duke, Huntington, Newberry, Illinois, Yale, and Texas."

      VENEZIA, PLINIO PIETRASANTA, 1557 - VENEZIA, GIOLITO DE' FERRARI, 1561 - Legatura di inizio Ottocento in mezza pelle verde e carta spugnata; al dorso, autori e filetti in oro, tagli spruzzati. I volume: frontespizio con marca tipografica, 6 pagine non numerate per dedicatoria e argomento con capolettera abitati; 202 su 210 pagine numerate (mancanza delle pagine da 153 a 160 comprese), seguono 20 su 23 carte non numerate. Alcuni grandi capolettera figurati. Prima edizione di quest'opera sull'origine di Goti, Unni, Vandali, Longobardi, Franchi, Arabi ecc.; in fine compaiono, compilate con grande rigore e ampiezza, le notizie intorno alle origini di Venezia. L'autore, che non volle apporre il proprio nome, nacque nel 1515 e fu membro del Consiglio dei Dieci. Va detto che questa raccolta di scritti storici fu ripresentata a distanza di un solo anno dal Marcolini, a cui per altro il Casali attribuisce con certezza anche questa prima edizione; infatti la dedica a Daniele Barbaro, Patriarca d'Aquileia, reca la firma proprio del Marcolini che poi si propose di ristampare l'opera, dopo averla ulteriormente ordinata. In effetti il testo della seconda edizione marcoliniana risulta migliorato per un verso; ma per l'altro si deve lamentare l'introduzione di moltissimi altri errori anche strutturali. II volume: frontespizio con grande marca tipografica di Giolito; 14 pagine non numerate; 239 pagine numerate (bianco il verso dell'ultima). Numerosi capolettera e testatine silografati. Traduzione del Porcacchi della rielaborazione delle Historiae Philippicae di Pompeo Trogo operata da Marco Giuniano Giustino. Esemplari in buone condizioni, segnalata la mancanza di alcune  carte al primo volume. Qualche ossidazione al secondo volume. 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Wie das Keiserthumb nach niedergang der Sonnen / ein wenig wider zu recht sey gebracht worden. Gedruckt durch Peter Seitz (d. Jüngere) Bibliogr. Nachweis: VD 16 P 4655. In dem vorliegenden Exemplar ist kein Holzschnittporträt enthalten. Prätorius, Paul, geb. 1521 in Bernau, studirte in Frankfurt a/O., ward Rector in seiner Vaterstadt, dann, wie es scheint, auch eine Zeitlang in Berlin. Dort erwählte ihn Kurfürst Joachim II. 1547 zum Erzieher für seine jung nacheinander zu Erzbischöfen von Magdeburg postulirten Söhne Friedrich (geb. 1530, † 1552) und Sigismund (geb. 1538, † 1566), in deren Interesse er auch zu diplomatischen Missionen verwandt wurde, wie z. B. 1561 nach Prag an Kaiser Ferdinand, welcher ihm den Adel verlieh. Er starb 1564 oder 1565 in Halle. — Der ihm nahe befreundete, vielleicht verwandte Abdias Prätorius (s. oben) widmete ihm seine Schrift "De phrasibus Ebraeorum" (Mittenberg bei Joh. Lufft, 1561, die Vorrede vom 18. Januar 1557), Georg Sabinus sein Buch "Epigramme"; der Humanist Michel Haslob (s. A. D. B. X, 745) verfaßte: "Praetoriana, sive de vita et obitu Pauli Praetorii", Francof. 1581. — Da ihm aus seiner Ehe nur eine Tochter erwachsen war, so adoptirte er 1562 eines Bernauer Predigers Sohn, Samuel Faber (Schmidt), der 1605 als Bürgermeister in Frankfurt a/O. gestorben ist. Dessen Enkel Johannes P. erhielt 1661 mit der böhmischen Ritterwürde den Namen Praetorius von Richthofen und ward der Stammvater des noch heute blühenden Geschlechtes dieses Namens.

      Yaakov ben Naftali Ha-Cohen of Gazzolo Yaakov Cohen Jacob Cohen, Mantua 1561 - Title page within woodcut architectural border. This is only one volume of six. This printer began publishing the set in Sabbioneta, [1559] and completed it in Mantua [1563]. Complete sets are rare. The condition of the pages, except for the title page is very good, however, the title page is shorter, and what is worse, leaves 6, 7 and 8 are missing. Leaf four (Dalet) is here twice, once in its correct place, after leaf 3 (gimel), and also between the title page and leaf 2. The complete volume should have 116 leaves. This copy has 113 leaves plus an extra leaf number 4. The first two Orders were printed by Foa in Sabbioneta and then completed in Mantua. complete sets are rare. The Mantua volumes were the last books to be typeset by Jacob Cohen of Gazzolo before he retired. He had served at the press of ¿Foa in Sabbioneta and came to Mantua in 1556 where he established a reputation for splendid typographical work. See Amram, The Marks of Hebrew ¿Books in Italy, pages 288-193 and 325. There are a few woodcut text diagrams. The first two Orders of this edition were printed by Tobias Foa in Sabbioneta; the last four Orders in Mantua by Jacob Cohen. But here there is only one volume. The Hebrew press at Sabbioneta escaped lightly from the storm of Paper condemnation of Hebrew books which was raging at the time in Venice and Rome. Indeed, the Sabbioneta Hebrew press flourished between the years 1551 and 1559, and Hebrew books never previously published ¿ even those treating aspects of Christianity ¿ were issued with considerable freedom. The decree of Pope Paul III in 1553 passed over the city without apparent effect ¿ a tribute ot the liberality and culture of the ruling prince of the province. The Mantua volumes were the last books to be typeset by Jacob Cohen of Gazzolo before he retired. He had served at the press of Foa in Sabbioneta and came to Mantua in 1556 where he established a reputation for splendid typographical work.
