Celio Secondo Curione
Basileae: Frobenium et Episcopium, 1561. First edition, 3 volumes, folio; text in double column; full contemporary blind-tooled pigskin (darkening along edges and spine) dated 1564, later armorial supralibros stamped in gilt on upper and lower covers, manuscript spine titles, remnants of clasps and hasps; textblocks fine. A very good, sound set. Curione (1503-1569) was an Italian humanist, grammarian, Protestant theologian, and a suspected antitrinitarian. He studied at the University of Turin, and in 1536-39 he was Professor at the University of Pavia. Persecuted for his sympathies toward the Reformation, he first tried to find refuge in Venice, Ferrara and Lucca (where he met Pier Martire Vermigli, Celso Martinengo, and Girolamo Zanchi). In 1542 he fled from Italy in order to escape the Inquisition, and settled in Switzerland. From 1542 to 1546 he taught at the University of Lausanne, before moving to the University of Basel, where he would remain 23 years, until his death, as Professor of Theology and Classical Studies, during which time the present Thesaurus was composed.

Geoffrey Chaucer / William Thynne
London: Ihon Kyngston, for Ihon Wight. Condition: Near Fine binding. Folio. The Fourth Folio Edition, or "Black Letter Edition", of Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" and "Romaunt of the Rose," among other works; Fifth Edition overall; titled The Woorkes of Geffrey Chaucer [sic]. One of two states, priority inconclusive; the variant is titled "The Works...1561", with twenty two woodcut illustrations added to the Prologue; the common consensus being that the publisher came into possession of the woodcuts belatedly, and a second state was printed which inserted the illustrations; six additional leaves signed with a Maltese cross. Despite this, the STC 2nd Edition lists the presumed first issue as 5076 and the more illustrated variant as 5075, without discussing reasons for this priority. This state's title page is illustrated with a woodcut of Chaucer's coat of arms, with "1560" at the top, all above a couplet: "Vertue florisheth in Chaucer still, though death of hym,hath wrought his will." Elaborate divisional title for Romaunt is present, featuring the house of York and Lancaster, as is the woodcut headpiece of a knight between two columns at the start of The Canterbury Tales.

DE CORAS, JEAN
Lyon: Antoine Vincent [Symphorien Barbier], 1561. First edition. THE RETURN OF MARTIN GUERRE -- THE VERY RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE JUDGE'S FIRST-HAND ACCOUNT OF A SENSATIONAL SIXTEENTH-CENTURY TRIAL FOR IDENTITY THEFT; THE BASIS OF NUMEROUS LITERARY, DRAMATIC, AND CINEMATIC ADAPTATIONS. This case had everything -- an unhappy marriage, a sudden disappearance and a mysterious return, an accusation of impersonation, a possibly complicit wife, a family and a village divided, two dramatic trials, the sudden appearance of a surprise witness at a moment in the second trial when acquittal seemed imminent, a sudden reversal of fortune, the defendant's conviction, his public apology (declaring the wife to be an innocent victim), and his execution in front of the home of the man he impersonated. It is scarcely surprising that the case has inspired, among other things, an essay by Montaigne and one by Leibniz, a novel by Dumas, a short story by Philip K. Dick, an opera, two fine films (a French one starring Gerard Depardieu and an American one transposing the action to the Civil War, starring Richard Gere and Jodie Foster), at least two musicals, and countless historical novels and radio and television episodes. In 1548, Martin Guerre, a French peasant living in the village of Artigat in the département of Ariège, stole a small amount of grain and as a result was forced into exile. This turn of events was doubly tragic for Guerre, because he had just conceived a son after eight years of impotence attributed by him and his young wife Bertrande to an evil spell (maléficiez), and he now h … [Click Below for Full Description]

En fait, ces commentaires, ainsi que ses "95 thèses », sont toujours imprimées dans le 21er-siècle et utilisé dans écoles théologiques, des prédicateurs et dans les séminaires. Ce commentaire de l'ancien Testament sur le livre de la Genèse comprend une préface par Philippe Melanchthon, qui était un collaborateur avec Martin Luther durant la réforme protestante. Commentaire de Luther sur Genesis a quelque chose à offrir que des théologiens modernes ne sont pas - il a établi un cadre sur comment les commentaires devraient être créés. Selon James Nestingen, « Exploration de Luther propre du récit [de la Genèse] offre un modèle pour une conversation vivante avec le texte dans lequel peuvent être récupérée à la ligne de l'histoire. » (p. 195) Le commentaire de la Genèse était un aboutissement des conférences et des sermons qui Lut … [Click Below for Full Description]

F. Camocius, 1561. Second edition (first 1544). Folio. [2], 120 (recte: 103), [1] ff. + final blank. Collation: [*]4 A6 B6 c-e6 f6 (+1) g-q6 r8 (including final blank leaf r8), COMPLETE. Title-page with large printer's device (below a pyramid: "Prudentia Perpetuat"), verso blank; A2 with full-page woodcut portrait of the author, verso blank; A3 with full-page woodcut of classical philosophers and physicians surrounding the author (cropped with loss of about 1 cm on outer edge), verso blank. A few letters of shoulder notes on P5v cropped. Large 9-line historiated woodcut initial on A3r. Letter "H" on headline of n2v added in contemporary MS (almost certainly by the printer). Early ownership inscription on title effaced. Modern boards covered with large vellum bifolium in Hebrew, marbled pastedowns and endpapers, yapp edges. Bookplate of Piergiordio Borio M.D. by E. De Pasquale. Blood Circulation and Bloodletting in the Renaissance. This "execrable" and "barbarous" work is nonetheless prized on account of the spectacular full-page woodcut portrait of the author, and the unprecedented full-page academic disputation scene: here the author, seated at his writing desk (which is illuminated by a putto) and attended by Wisdom, finds acclaim from classical and "modern" physicians and philosophers; the six "modern" physicians were in fact Panizzi's contemporaries and are identified by the abbreviations in the books that lay before them (their names are given in full on fol. b2v and b3r). This woodcut is one of the very few Renaissance representations of a public disputation on bloodl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Battista PITTONI detto "Battista Vicentino" (Vicenza 1520 - 1583)
"Acquaforte e bulino, 1561, datata e firmata in lastra in basso al centro. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti le scritte al verso e il numero tratto dalla serie ""Praecipua aliquot romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monumenta par baptistam Pittonem vicentinum mense september MDLXI"". Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame o con piccoli margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Le vedute del Pittoni sono ispirate alle opere di Hieronimus Cock del ""Praecipua aliquot romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monumenta"". Le lastre del Pittoni furono successivamente ristampate, nel 1582, nell'opera di Vincenzo Scamozzi ""Discorsi sopra l'Antichità di Roma"". Queste prove, più stanche, recano al verso il testo descrittivo. Gli esemplari di prima tiratura, sono da considerarsi molto rari." " Etching and engraving, 1560 circa. Example in the first state of two, before the text on verso, taken from ""Praecipua aliquot romanae antiquitatis ruinarum monumenta par baptistam Pittonem vicentinum mense september MDLXI"", inspired by the same work by Hieronimus Cock. Magnificent proof, rich in shades, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the copperplate or with small margins, in excellent condition. The plates by Pittoni were later reprinted in 1582 and included in the Vincenzo Scamozzi ""Discorsi sopra l'Antichità di Roma"", where the views are weaker and with a descriptive text, on verso. The examples of the first edition, are to be considered very rare." Passavant, Le Peintre Graveur, vol. VI, 1 - I/II.

(161), (9) p. de table, grande vignette de titre gravée à la marque de l'imprimeur (exemplaire réglé). Seconde édition, reproduisant la première donnée par le même éditeur en 1547. Le texte a été établi librement par Antoine Pierre de Rieux d'après un manuscrit. La préface est de l'humaniste toulousain Guillaume de La Perrière (1503-1565) et l'ouvrage est dédié à François 1er. Chroniqueur, Sénéchal de Champagne, Jean de Joinville devint confident du roi Saint Louis qu'il accompagna en Égypte en 1248. Ses mémoires terminées en 1309 sont la source historique la plus précieuse du règne de Saint Louis. "Le recul du temps, le désintéressement de Joinville et sa naïve rudesse donnent à ses souvenirs une exceptionnelle valeur historique. Soucieux de peindre l'homme dans sa vie quotidienne et le roi à la guerre ou à ses affaires de gouvernement, plus que de glorifier le saint, critiquant parfois un comportement mystique qu'il juge excessif ou des décisions politiques qu'il ne croit pas sages, Joinville est aussi le témoin précieux de l'opinion aristocratique dans l'entourage royal. Il est, enfin, l'un des premiers mémorialistes à avoir intégré le dialogue reconstitué dans un récit" (Jean Favier) … [Click Below for Full Description]

Celio Secondo Curione
Basileae: Frobenium et Episcopium, 1561. First edition, 3 volumes, folio; text in double column; full contemporary blind-tooled pigskin (darkening along edges and spine) dated 1564, later armorial supralibros stamped in gilt on upper and lower covers, manuscript spine titles, remnants of clasps and hasps; textblocks fine. A very good, sound set. Curione (1503-1569) was an Italian humanist, grammarian, Protestant theologian, and a suspected antitrinitarian. He studied at the University of Turin, and in 1536-39 he was Professor at the University of Pavia. Persecuted for his sympathies toward the Reformation, he first tried to find refuge in Venice, Ferrara and Lucca (where he met Pier Martire Vermigli, Celso Martinengo, and Girolamo Zanchi). In 1542 he fled from Italy in order to escape the Inquisition, and settled in Switzerland. From 1542 to 1546 he taught at the University of Lausanne, before moving to the University of Basel, where he would remain 23 years, until his death, as Professor of Theology and Classical Studies, during which time the present Thesaurus was composed.

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.

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.

GASTALDI GIACOMO/RUSCELLI GIOVANNI
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 India's 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

GASTALDI GIACOMO/RUSCELLI GIOVANNI
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

Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1561. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare in meravigliosa coloritura coeva. Carta tratta dalla Geographia di Claudio Tolomeo, a cura del Ruscelli, pubblicata in Venezia in più edizioni tra il 1561 ed il 1598. La carta è basata sulla medesima opera di Giacomo Gastaldi (1548), che probabilmente disegnò personalmente anche queste mappe, incise dai fratelli Livio e Giulio Sanuto. La peculiarità di queste mappe è che sono incise due per lastra e successivamente tagliate, di conseguenza il segno del rame appare solo su tre lati per ogni mappa. Il testo di Ruscelli e le sue carte sono considerate come il miglior atlante moderno fino alla prima versione del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius del 1570. Solo la loro enorme diffusione ne impedisce una valutazione sostenuta nel mercato antiquario. ORIGINAL COLOURING Etching with engraving, about 1561. Magnificent proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, in perfect condition. Example in wonderful contemporary coloring. The map comes from Ptolemy's Geographia, edited by Ruscelli, published in Venice in multiple editions between 1561 and 1598. The map is based on the same work of Giacomo Gastaldi (1548), which probably also personally drew these maps, engraved by the brothers Livio and Giulio Sanuto.

Ruscelli's Atlas is an expanded edition of Gastaldi's Atlas of 1548, which has been called the most comprehensive atlas produced between Martin Waldseemüller's Geographiae of 1513, and the Abraham Ortelius Theatrum of 1570. Ruscelli and Gastaldi's maps were beautifully engraved on copper, marking a turning point in the history of cartography. From that point forward, the majority of cartographic works used this medium. As it was a harder material than wood it gave the engraver the ability to render more detail. Gastaldi sought the most up-to-date geographical information available, making the modern maps in Ruscelli's Geographia among the best modern maps of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1561. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Esemplare in meravigliosa coloritura coeva. La mappa di Ruscelli è molto interessante per la sua rappresentazione dei cinque continenti conosciuti, legati tra loro come una superficie continua. Questa mappa presenta una proiezione della superficie terrestre già piuttosto obsoleta ai tempi della sua pubblicazione. Già in precedenza, altri cartografi, partendo da Matrin Waldseemuller nel 1507, avevano messo in dubbio l'affermazione di Colombo secondo cui Asia e America formassero un unico continente. I viaggi di Magellano e di altri esploratori, che permisero di conoscere definitivamente la reale estensione dell'oceano Pacifico, diedero ulteriore sostegno a tali dubbi, sebbene lasciassero aperta la possibilità di una connessione America-Asia a settentrione. Intorno alla metà del XVI secolo, tuttavia, anche questa ultima ipotesi venne completamente screditata, per essere rimpiazzata dall'idea di un ipotetico "stretto di Anian". Altra interessante caratteristica di questa mappa è l'intreccio di "linee dei sestanti" radianti da 16 punti focali. Il sestante era uno strumento indispensabile per misurare e tracciare, la rotta di navigazione. In questo caso, le linee tracciate sulla mappa sono esclusivamente ornamentali e illustrative, in quanto la carta è troppo piccola per poter essere funzionale.

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. In 1574 a new plate was used which lasted until the final edition of 1599. The most significant map in Ruscelli's atlas is his Septentrionalium Partium Nova Tabula map, which is based upon the Zeno map of the North Atlantic, first included in a 1558 travel book, which describes a pre-Columbian voyage to the New World in 1380 by Ventians Nicolo and Antonio Zeno.
