Rhegius, Urbanus (1489-1541), Ernestus Regius
Noriberage [Nuremberg]: Montanus & Neuber, 1562. Quarto in Sixes. Latine Edita: Cum eius Vita, Praefatione Ernesti Regii. This is the first and most significant edition of Rhegius' collected works. He was a student of John Eck and had become a celebrated court preacher in Augsburg. Initially, he agreed only with Luther's attack on indulgences though he limited this view to his circle of friends; however, he became convinced of Luther's views by 1525. He became Luther's major link to the Saxon theologians and a key figure in the Augsburg Confession and agreeing to have it submitted to Charles V. His correspondence with Melanchthon on taking a conciliatory stance led to the latter's meeting with Martin Bucer on August 22, 1530 resulted in the relative peace among competing voices in the early German Reformation. Once he had those letters of compromise sent to Luther, he met with Luther personally for the first time which he recalled "as the happiest day of his life". He also publicly praised Luther as a theologian without equal in any age (Liebmann, Maximillian). He soon became a key figure in both the territorial and the urban Reformation of northern Germany. He was perhaps the most moderating figure in the Lutheran movement though central to his thought was a pure gospel exclusive of the Catholic sacramental system. His catechisms, homiletical handbooks, and other theological works clarifies his developing thought. He rejected the 1533 plea of Pope Clement VII for a council since he did not believe it would be free of Rome's influence if it were held outside Germany. He did … [Click Below for Full Description]

FALLOPPIO, Gabriele.
Venetiis [Venice]: Apud Marcum Antonium Ulmum. FIRST EDITION, 1562 issue (see below). See G&M 378.2, 1208, and 1537 (1561 issue). The greatest Italian anatomical book of the sixteenth century. Rather than a complete study of the whole of anatomy, Falloppio, who was a pupil of Vesalius, designed this work as a critical commentary of his teacher's De humani corporis fabrica, correcting some of its errors and adding additional observations and details. For this reason there was no need for illustrations. In fact it was a work of great originality, in which Falloppio reported very many new discoveries and observations. It was his only work published during his lifetime, and therefore the only one which can be said to be fully authentic. It is now very rarely offered for sale. Falloppio discovered and first described the chorda tympani, semicircular canals and the "aqueduct of Falloppius", correctly described the structure and course of the cerebral vessels, and knew the circular folds of the small intestines. He gave the first description of the "circle of Willis", enumerated all the nerves of the eye, and introduced a number of anatomical names, including the vagina and placenta, and is best remembered for his account of the tubes named after him. He also gave excellent descriptions of the ovaries, hymen, clitoris, and round ligaments, and proved the existence of the seminal vesicles. He included an important account of the kidneys, which may antedate that of Eustachius. For a full account of Falloppio's discoveries, see the article by C.D. O'Malley in the DSB.

COLOMBO, Realdo; RONDELET, G.; LOMNIUS, J.
Paris; Lyon; Antwerp: Wechel; Bonhomme; Plantin, 1562. FIRST EDITION OF BOOKS TWO AND THREE, SECOND EDITION OF BOOK ONE. Three valuable books bound together in contemporary vellum, with original tabs. I: Originally published in folio three years earlier, this second edition in its smaller format was especially significant due to the fact that "it attests to the widespread contemporary use and recognized importance of Colombo's work." It is here that Colombo defines his discovery of the pulmonary or lesser circulation, i.e., the passage of blood from the right cardiac ventricle to the left via the lungs. He describes the duplicatures of the peritoneum, the ventricles of the larynx, and the mode of action of the pulmonary, cardiac, and aortic valves, clearing up a number of errors of his predecessors. Colombo (ca.1515-59), a friend of Michelangelo, was a pupil of Vesalius and later became his successor in the chair of anatomy at Padua. He bears the responsibility of having been the first person to perform vivisection on dogs instead of hogs, for the reason that the latter were "annoying by their squealing." II: First edition and extremely rare; OCLC notes only the NLM copy of this original edition.This valuable treatise on diseases and their cure is described by Mettler (p. 630) as the first to furnish us with a fact. "A fact! something precious for that period, despite the brevity of his descriptions. Rondelet was a well known physician at Montpelliere, and teacher of Coiter, Bauhin, Gesner, and Aldrovandi.

1562. THE MAP THAT INFLUENCED THE CARTOGRAPHY OF AFRICA FOR MORE THAN A CENTURY AND A HALF. Copper-plate engraving: 191/8" x 241/2" Venice: Paolo Forlani, 1562. References: R.V. Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), n. 67; David Woodward, The Maps and Prints of Paolo Forlani (Chicago, 1990), n. 10.01; Robert W. Karrow., Mapmakers of the Sixteenth Century and Their Maps (Chicago, 1993), 30/98.1. In 1546, the Venetian Council of Ten issued an order that a map of Africa be prepared for the "Sala del Scude" of the Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace). This task was entrusted to the most prominent Italian cartographer of the sixteenth century, Giacomo Gastaldi. More than two-hundred years later, in the 1760s, Gastaldi's map of Africa was painted over and the original lost to posterity. It was preserved, however, in the form of this splendid printed version, finely engraved and published by Paolo Forlani in 1562. Gastaldi (see also nos. 19-21, 23-26) was the principal cartographer of the Venetian school of mapmaking and one of the foremost geographers of the sixteenth century, rivaled only by his northern European counterpart, the great Gerard Mercator. A native of the Piedmont region, Gastaldi was official Cosmographer to the Venetian Republic. One of the foremost authorities on sixteenth-century European mapmakers, Robert Karrow, has described him as "one of the most important cartographers of the sixteenth century. He was certainly the greatest Italian mapmaker of his age." His colleague Paolo Forlani (see also nos. 14-15), who iss … [Click Below for Full Description]

Taisnier, Jean
Köln, Birckmann 1562. 28 cm. (12), 624, (8, letzte 2 weiß) Seiten mit Druckermarke auf Titel, Porträt auf Titelrückseite und am Ende sowie Hunderten von Textholzschnitten. Pergamentband der Zeit - Houzeau / Lancaster I, 4885 - Thorndike V, 580ff - VD16 T 72 - Zinner 2296 - Erstausgabe. Sein Hauptwerk ist dieses Sammelwerk in 8 Büchern über Handlesekusnt, Astrologie und Physiognomik, dessen chiromantischer Teil in 6 Büchern das ganze Wissen seiner Zeit zusammenfaßt und wegen seiner fast 1800 Illustrationen zu den geschätztesten Arbeiten über dieses Gebiet zählt. "... darinne er sonderlich von der Physiognomie und Chiromantie handelt; wie er denn zuletzt alle seine Zeit mit der Chiromantie zubrachte, und damit das leichtgläubige Volck an sich zog, aber auch bey andern seinen erlangten Ruhm wieder verlohr" (Jöcher IV, 989). "Taisnier posed as a distinguished specialist in the art of chiromancy. He asserted, like Cocles, that his judgement had never gone astray in the examination of human hands, and he gives many instances of his succesful past readings of palms. After consulting many painters, he found it advisable to draw his own figures of hands in order to have them exact" (Thorndike). Die Bücher 7 und 8 behandeln Physiognomik und Astrologie. Der 1509 im Hennegau geborene Jurist, Philosoph, Mathematiker und Musiker war Lehrer der Pagen Kaiser Karls V. Er bereiste seit 1535 Nordafrika, Vorderasien und Südeuropa und hielt in mehreren Städten Italiens Vorlesungen ab. Er starb nach 1562 als Musikdirektor des Erzbischofs zu Köln.

CAMPEGIUS LAURENTIUS.
(Giacobbe Marcaria),, Ripae, 1562. Cm. 20,5, pp. (16). Leg. in cart. recente. Ben conservato. Lorenzo Campeggi (1474-1539), di Milano, fu professore di diritto a Padova e Bologna; divenne auditore della Sacra Rota e ricoprì numerosi incarichi diplomatici. La sua attività era finalizzata alla creazione di un fronte comune contro l'avanzata dei Turchi; passaggio obbligato fu quindi la forte pressione diplomatica del papato su Venezia, Impero, Francia, Spagna ed Inghilterra. Nella dieta di Ratisbona del 1524 si giunse a formulare l'impegno comune per la riforma della chiesa cattolica, anche attraverso la lotta contro gli abusi esistenti. Il grande merito del cardinal Campeggi fu appunto quello di creare le condizioni, proprio in territorio tedesco, di una vera e propria lega confessionale che mirasse anche a formulare misure comuni contro il dilagare della dottrina luterana. Alla luce di queste premesse risulta chiaro il motivo dell'iniziativa editoriale rivana, promossa nel penultimo anno conciliare per riaffermare dottrine di grande autorevolezza in ambito europeo. Raro ed importante. Manca all'Adams; cfr. Catalogo telematico ICCU; Borrelli, 238; inoltre, per approfondimenti bio-bibliografici sulla figura del C., Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, XVII, 454-462. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Forlani, Paolo (FL. 1560-1571)
1562. THE FIRST SEPARATE MAP OF SOUTH AMERICA Copper-plate engraving: 21" x 161/4" Venice: Paolo Forlani, c. 1562 References: R.V. Tooley, "Maps in Italian Atlases of the Sixteenth Century," Imago Mundi 3 (1939), n. 93; David Woodward, The Maps and Prints of Paolo Forlani (Chicago, 1990), 11. Paolo Forlani's map of South America was the first large-scale map of the continent to appear in print, as well as a considerable advance over existing depictions. It represents a watershed moment in the cartography of the western hemisphere. Extending from Florida and the West Indies in the north to part of Tierra del Fuego in the south, the map was then unequaled in scope and accuracy. Many sites and geographical features are named through the interior of the continent as well as on the coastline, including the Amazon, the Strait of Magellan and "Terra del Brasil." The river system is depicted with remarkable clarity and thoroughness, as are all of the islands of the Caribbean. The quality of engraving, moreover, is a hallmark of the finest Venetian cartography. For the geographical information, Forlani drew in large part on the world map published in 1561 by his eminent colleague Giacomo Gastaldi, the most accomplished cartographer of sixteenth-century Italy. Following in Gastaldi's footsteps, Forlani was a Venetian publisher of many important maps and charts in the Renaissance. It was in Italy, and particularly in Venice, that the map trade, which was to influence profoundly the course of cartographic history, was most highly developed during the first half of the sixteenth … [Click Below for Full Description]

CERVANTES SAAVEDRA, Miguel de
.- Palau 52010 'Primera edición en lengua original publicada en Inglaterra y 1ª de carácter lujoso y de valor artístico. El texto corregido por Pedro Pineda resulta muy esmerado, pues aparte de tener a la vista las mejores ediciones corrientes, parece que también compulsó las primitivas de Cuesta. El retrato de Cervantes, obra de Kent, es conforme al autoretrato escrito por el propio Cervantes en el prólogo de sus 'Novelas'. Las 68 láminas fueron dibujadas por Vanderbank y G.Kent, y grabadas en cobre por Vander Gucht, Vertne, Baron y Claude de Bosc. (.) El aspecto de la edición es suntuoso y bello: lástima que el papel, a pesar de buena calidad, se oscurece en algunos pliegos, afeando la unidad del conjunto.' Salvá 1562, Suñé 42, Brunet I 1749.
