FALLOPPIO, Gabrielle.
Cologne: Arnold Birkmann, 1562. First edition. First edition, second issue, of the greatest Italian anatomical book of the sixteenth century (first published in 1561, see below)."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."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. Vesalius replied positively to Falloppio's book with his Anatomicarum … [Click Below for Full Description]

TAISNIER, Jean [PEREGRINUS, Peter; BENEDETTI, Giovanni Battista].
Johann Birkmann, Cologne, 1562. First edition of this exceptionally rare, interesting, and notorious work ? the second printed work on magnetism, preceded only by the Epistola de magnete of Peregrinus (1558) (which is virtually unobtainable). Taisnier?s work, in fact, contains a plagiarism of Peregrinus, which it reprints verbatim, and of the equally rare Demonstratio proportionum motuum localium (1554) of Benedetti (1530-90), which anticipates Galileo?s theory of falling bodies. But Taisnier?s book also contains important original contributions, notably to navigation. It ?had a section on the relation of hull shape to speed in ship design. Its most valuable contribution was a long dissertation upon the causes and sequence of tides ? [it] marked a definite step forward in tidal theory? (Waters, pp. 150-151). ?The Epistola ranks as one of the most impressive scientific treatises of the Middle Ages. Not only did Peregrinus bring together virtually all the relevant, contemporary knowledge on magnetism, he added to it and, of the greatest importance, organized the whole into a science of magnetism. He formulated rules for the determination of magnetic polarity, which then enabled him to enunciate rules for attraction and repulsion, all of which would today form the basis of an introductory lesson on magnetism. As the two magnetic compasses and perpetual motion devices for clock and wheel testify, Peregrinus was also seriously concerned with the practical application of magnetic force. The subsequent influence of his treatise was considerable. The existence of at least thirty-on … [Click Below for Full Description]

COOK, JAMES AND JAMES KING.
Beddie 1562; Forbes 146; Howgego, to 1800, C175; Kroepelien 209; Sabin 16275; Tiele, Bibl. 268. First edition, with the imprint changed to 1788 by pen, of the Dutch translation of Cook's account of his third and last voyage, with an engraved frontispiece depicting Cook's death by the native inhabitants of "Owyhee" (Hawaii). Cook (1728-1779) volunteered in 1776 for a third voyage "to investigate the coasts of the north Pacific, and to settle once and for all the question of the northwest passage" (Howgego). Via Cape of Good Hope, Tasmania and New Zealand they reached the Pacific Ocean, where they discovered and mapped several islands. They continued sailing north to the west coast of North America. Sailing south again they mapped some islands around Hawaii. After some natives had stolen one of the Discovery's boats, Cook came ashore with a small party. The meeting escalated and during retreat Cook was overpowered by some native inhabitants and killed. Clerke gained command and set out to Kamchatka, but died along the way and was buried at Petropavlovsk. James King and John Gore were now in command of the two ships, and started sailing back to Plymouth.Title-page and engraved frontispiece somewhat smudged, some occasional spots and stains, but otherwise in good condition. Binding worn along the extremities, hinges cracked, damaged at the head of spine, sides scratched. [Attributes: First Edition]

GUEVARA, Antonio de
1562 1st ed Famous Marcus AURELIUS Letters Stoic Philosophy Meditations Guevara “Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.” Marcus Aurelius Antonio Guevara, a 15th-century man of letters, grew up in the court of Ferdinand and Isabella in Spain. His major works include ‘Familiar Letters’, and ‘The Ten Caesars.’ His work, now, is considered of little more than historical interest, but his writing style and contents reflect the tastes of the court of Charles V, who he was writing for later in his life. The subject matter is considered rather trite, but it depicts Spanish life during the early 16th-century. ‘Lirbo di Marco Aurelio’ features a lengthy biography of Marcus Aurelius and includes published letters of Emperor Aurelius. This treatise is work on Spanish morality through the lens of the life of the famed Roman Emperor. From about 1530 to the end of the century a notable increase of Interest in Marcus Aurelius can be seen in Western Art. Guevara wrote this book hoping to capture some of the profits that could be gained from promoting Marcus Aurelius.

Includes Giulio Palamede's general index added in 1557 with a separate title page. - Ibn Sina's "Keta-b al-qanun fi'l-tebb" ("Canon of Medicine"), written in Arabic but widely translated throughout the Middle Ages and the basis of medical training in the West as late as the mid-17th century. Finished in 1025, the Qanun is divided into 5 books, devoted to the basic principles of medicine, the Materia Medica (listing about 800 drugs), pathology, diseases affecting the body as a whole and finally the formulary. - Ibn Sina (c. 980-1037), in the West known by his Latinized name Avicenna, was physician to the ruling caliphs. The influence of his Qanun can hardly be overestimated. Translated into Latin in the 12th century, it became a standard textbook of Galenic medicine, inf … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALIEN, Claude
Venise, Vincent Valgrisium, 1562 in-folio de 40ff. (signatures a8-e8); 376ff. (signatures A8-Z8, AA8-ZZ8, AAa8) Reliure frottée avec quelques accrocs Lettrines gravées sur bois. Nombreuses figures in texte. Cet ouvrage constitue le tome 9 des "Opera omnia" parues chez Valgrisius en 10 parties, traduites par Jo. Bap. Rosario. Galien (131-201) étudie beaucoup les domaines de l'hygiène et de la pharmacologie, mais c'est l'anatomie qui reste pour lui la base de la médecine. Son schéma de physiologie humaine repose sur la doctrine des 4 éléments (eau, air, terre, feu) qui, combinés aux 4 qualités physiques (chaud, froid, humide, sec), influent sur les quatre humeurs : le sang, la bile, la pituite et l'atrabile. Galien étend cette doctrine d'Hippocrate et y inclue les quatre tempéraments, sorte de classification des hommes en sanguins (chaleureux et aimables), flegmatiques (lents et apathique), mélancoliques (tristes et déprimés) et colériques (emportés et prompts à réagir).Photo et description sur demande.Picture and description upon request.

CATANEO, M. Girolamo
Francesco Marchetti all'insegna dell'Ancora [per Lodovico Sabbio]. FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Folio. ff. (2) 29, (1). Roman and Italic letter. Large printer's woodcut device on title-page, one historiated initial, a few decorative and typographical head- and tail- pieces; armorial woodcut representing three lilies to verso of t-p, 58 full page diagrams for the computation of time. Light age yellowing, t-p a bit dusty, inoffensive oil splash to first ll., minor water stain progressively disappearing to central gatherings, small tear to lower right corner of first fol., worm trail to marginal upper corner of last 3 ll. A good copy in contemporary limp vellum, fore edges slightly sprinkled red, yapp edges, rubbed. Rare example of this curious mathematical-astronomical treatise by Girolamo Cataneo (d. circa 1584), a mathematician and military architect from Novara (Piedmont) who served Charles V of Spain as a soldier and then worked as a military engineer for many aristocratic families in Northern Italy. He wrote numerous books on fortification but was also interested in astrology and prognostication as a codified means of predicting events by observation of signs. The book explains a board game based on calendar computations consisting of 58 numerical charts related to the 12 months of the year. With no element of skill or strategy, the game involves the casual extraction by chance of two numbers by the use of two dice, to calculate the Moon phases from 1562 to 1580, specific dates such as Easter and the beginning of the Advent and the Golden number. The work also includes a ded … [Click Below for Full Description]

JEROME [Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus]
Dilingae : apud Sebaldum Mayer, 1562. 3 parts in one vol thick 8vo, contemporary pigskin over wooden boards, spine with raised bands, two brass claps. Bonne édition des épitres de Saint Jérôme et excellent exemple de la stratégie pastorale choisie par Pierre Canisius contre les tenants de la réformation. En place et lieu d'attaques violentes contre les Luthériens allemands, Canisius privilégia une défense précise et abordable de la Bible et description écrits des Pères de l'église. C'est dans cette optique qu'il publia sa propre édition épitres de Saint Jérome, imprimée avec les beaux caractères romains de Sébald Mayer. Bon exemplaire en reliure du temps, avec un portrait de Saint Jérome gravé sur bois et colorié (répété en vin de volume). Annotations manuscrite et petite déchirure angulaire au bas de la page 57, sans gravité ni perte de texte. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

DONI, [Anton Francesco] [1513-1574].
Venice: Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, 1562. First Combined Edition of this early example of Italian Renaissance utopian literature, inspired by Sir Thomas More (originally published as two separate volumes in 1552 and 1553). Doni himself had edited the first Italian translation of More's Utopia by Ortensio Lando, which appeared in Venice in 1548 (Gibson 37). "In a mixture of story, speculation, dialogue, allegory, and moralizing, Doni discusses the little world - man, the greater world - the universe, and the world of God, and goes on to satirize human inconsistencies in the mixed world, man's follies in the risible world, his vain imaginations in the world of the imagination, and thus reaches a more truly utopian section, il mondo savio e pazzo, which Curcio prints in Utopisti e riformatori, pages 1-15, noting (page xii) that More influenced Doni, who was probably the translator, certainly the editor of the Italian text of Utopia. Il mondo savio is perfect in all respects, even in form, "in todo perfetissimo, a guise d'una stella," regular, symmetrical, blessed with perpetual peace. Reason prevails in all things. There is exchange of goods but no money. All are equal and dress in the same manner. Love is free and children are adopted by the state. Life is tranquil; though luxury is absent, all are contented."

PTOLEMY; COMMANDINO, Federico
Paulum Manutius, 1562. Dolphin and anchor device on title, Greek and Roman types, numerous woodcut diagrams. Modern full calf in an antique style, gilt fleurons on covers; an exceptionally clean copy from the library of a Jesuit college with its inscription on title dated 1645. FIRST EDITION First and only edition of Ptolemy's application of mathematics to astronomical problems. The Liber de analemmate outlines a method for finding angles used in the construction of sundials and is an "important demonstration that Greek mathematics consisted of more than 'classical' geometry. Because of its excellent commentary, the editio princeps of the Analemma is still worth consulting" (DSB XI, pp. 197-198, 205). It was edited by the noted mathematician Commandino, who appended his own work on the calibration of sundials in order to give further practical application of Ptolemy's method. Commandino (1509-1575) used a fragmentary Latin translation of an Arabic text to recover Ptolemy's complete work.

Marca tipografica al frontespizio in cornice figurata con un gallo che canta. In basso il mondo. Motto: tota nocte excubo. Leggerissimo e non fastidioso probabilmente dovuto della qualità della stampa. Tagli scuri e nel complesso buon esemplare. Esemplare di celebre provenienza, come da bell'ex-libris applicato all'interno del piatto anteriore, proveniente dalla raccolta personale del grande patriota e bibliofilo originario di Lugo (Ravenna), Giacomo Maria Manzoni che fu membro del Consiglio dei Deputati di Roma nel 1848, rappresentante del popolo nella Costituente romana nel 1849 e Ministro delle Finanze nella Repubblica Romana. Manzoni pubblicò alcune opere basilari nella storiografia italiana come gli Annali tipografici torinesi del sec. XV (1863), Annali tipografici dei Soncino (4 voll., 1883-86, incomp.), Studi di bibliografia analitica (3 voll., 1881-82). Celebre la sua ricchissima collezione di edizioni rare, specie di incunaboli e di testi di lingua, in cui confluì anche la raccolta numismatica e quella di autografi di B. Borghesi. La sua collezione venne poi dispersa in una famosa asta tenutasi nel 1893.

John Chrysostom, Saint; Giulio Poggiani, trans.
Apud Paulum Manutium, Aldi F, 1562. First Aldine edition: Chrysostom's meditations on the religious aspects of virginity, De Virginitate liber, along with a letter from Poggiani to Cardinal Bishop of Augsburg Otto Truchsess von Waldburg and a note to the reader. Essentially an extension of the papacy, the Roman Aldine press capitalized on its fame to disseminate -- with great cachet -- Vatican-approved texts in the publication war that was such an integral part of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. John Chrysostom (349-407) was one of the four doctors of the Greek Church and the foremost preacher among the Church Fathers, the name "Chrysostom" meaning "golden-mouthed." The subject of some controversy, he fell afoul of the Empress Eudoxia and was exiled. Italian humanist and Greek scholar Poggiani (1522-68), secretary to Carlo Borromeo, led a much calmer life editing texts related to the Council of Trent, and even translated into Latin a catechism organized by the council. The text is neatly printed in roman in single-column format with capital spaces with guide letters (unaccomplished) and marginal notes; the title-page contains the iconic Aldine device. Provenance: Early ink signature "Alexii Feni" on title-page; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear of both the text and its clamshell housing.

Dolce, Lodovico
apresso Gio. Battista et Marchio Sessa fratelli, 1562. L'opera del Dolce si inserisce pienamente nella grande fioritura cinquecentesca di romanzi di cavalleria, tradotti o composti sugli originali secondo libera ispirazione, grazie all'impulso di alcuni stampatori di Venezia: l'importante operazione imprenditoriale fu possibile grazie all'impiego di veri e propri "poligrafi", tra cui, appunto, il Dolce, che tradussero, riadattarono o nuovamente composero i grandi romanzi di cavalleria della tradizione francese e spagnola. E spagnolo fu anche il «Primaleon», su cui Dolce approntò la sua versione in ottava rima, proprio in concomitanza con la pubblicazione dell'«Amadigi» di Bernardo Tasso, anch'esso composto a partire dal romanzo spagnolo di grande successo «Amadis de Gaula».
