        Statuta Urbis Ferrariae nuper Reformata

      Folio [30.5 x 19.5 cm], (10) ff., 307 [i.e. 308], (13) ff., including woodcut title showing Ferrara and Este arms, and full-page woodcut portrait of the printer Rossi on EEEviii v. Bound in 18th-century stiff vellum, title stenciled on spine. Some minor staining in scattered leaves and some trivial worming in margin, but generally a broad-margined and fresh copy, excellent. Rare and most likely the earliest acquirable edition of the municipals laws of Ferrara, one of the richest and most cultivated of Northern Italian courts, published shortly after the concluding session of the Council of Trent (1563). The work contains one of the earliest portrait of a printer in a book he himself produced (see below). The work significantly revises the previous publication of local statutory law, and is signed by a committee of local jurists (3v-4r). The statutes govern all aspects of civil and criminal law, from the buying and selling of goods and property, marriage, testaments, to criminal procedure. The work is of interest for containing a portrait of the printer. Note: Rossi had no editorial or authorial part in the work; he is expressly designated "Typographus" (printer) in the identifying legend. This is of interest to historians of the book for it showing the developing confidence and prestige enjoyed by 16th-century printers, and is analogous, though considerably more assertive, to putting an element of the printer's process or trade in a publisher's device. "Rossi was near the end of a career as a printer at Ferrara that covered more than 50 years and certainly justified the use of his portrait in this volume" (Mortimer, I.261). Although it should be regarded as a form of self-indulgence and did not catch on-as say, the author portraits on which it is based obviously did-it nonetheless remains an interesting bit of evidence for the elevated status of Italian printers. There is no repertory of examples and we know of no study of the subject, but in querying colleagues we have located only two earlier analogous portraits: Rossi pictured himself in smaller format in the colophon to another book he published: Giovanni Maria Verrato's 1561 response to critics of the Council of Trent: Contra responsiones et protestationes. And Francesco Priscianese pictured himself in a Latin grammar published in 1540. Also, Prof. Anthony Grafton draws our attention to the portraits of the illustrators in the Historia Stirpium of Leonhart Fuchs (1542). Further searching would doubtless turn up a few other examples, but it is clearly an isolated phenomenon The statutes received an incunable edition in 1476 published by Severino da Ferrara (BMC VI.609, the only copy we have been able to locate): this edition is not in Goff, and we locate no American copy. The next edition was published by Rossi in 1534 with a less elaborate version of the title cut, and without the portrait. The present edition is next, making it third. According to Mortimer, the hypothetical issue points raised by F. Berlan in his Bibliografia degli statuti municipali ed inediti di Ferrara (Rome 1878) pp. 21-7 are in need of substantial copy-checking. There are no copies of the editio princeps or the 1534 edition in America; for the present edition, OCLC lists Kansas, Minnesota and the Waseda Library, to which should be added the Harvard copy described by Mortimer. * Mortimer, Italian 182; Adams F266; Fumagalli, Lexicon, p. 128, fig 45 (portrait); L. Manzoni, Bibliografia degli statuti, ordini e leggi dei municipali italiani I.2 (Bologna 1876), pp. 177-78.

        L. Coelii Lactantii Firmiani opera, quae quidem extant omnia

      Basileae: per Henricum Petri, [colophon: 1563]. 4to (29.2 cm, 11.5"). [12] ff., 559, [21] pp. North African apologist Lactantius (ca. 240–320) converted to Christianity prior to 303, before settling in Trier to tutor Constantine's son Crispus. Deemed the "Christian Cicero" by Renaissance scholars, Lactantius is better known for his elegant writing style than for his knowledge of Scripture, yet of his works only those concerning Christianity survive — including, in the present copy, his earliest treatise, De opificio dei (303/304); the Institutiones in seven books, which was => the first systematic description of Christianity in Latin (completed 313); the Epitome divinarum institutionum, which synthesizes the Institutions; the supplement De ira dei; the Phoenix poem; and the Carmen de dominica resurrectione. Basel printer Henricus Petrus (Sebastian Henric Petri, 1546–1627) was responsible for the publication of very important works, including an early edition of Copernicus and Münster's Cosmographia, the first German description of the world. He printed this Latin and Greek, later edition of Lactantius's opera with the main text in roman, single column; the extensive commentary by Birk in italic, double column; the indices triple-column; and the whole text punctuated by handsome historiated and floriated woodcut initials of various sizes, some quite large. A woodcut diagram shows the opposition of Light (God) and Dark levels of the universe and there are multiple letterpress charts; the title-page features the printer's device, a variant of which also appears on the final verso. This is the first appearance of this commentary by => Xystus Betuleius (Sixt Birk, 1501–54), a corrector for the Basel printers and a teacher at various schools who composed German and Latin didactic dramas; commentaries on Lactantius (this) and Cicero; and a concordance of the Greek New Testament. An associate of Erasmus, he witnessed Erasmus's first will, in 1527. Adams L27; VD16 L42; Graesse, IV, 66. Not in Schweiger or Brunet. On Lactantius, see: New Catholic Encyclopedia, VIII, 308–09. On Birk, see: Contemporaries of Erasmus, pp. 150–51. Recent full brown morocco blind-ruled, old style; raised bands on spine accented with gilt ruling, author and title gilt in second compartment and date collector style at spine base, edges lightly speckled brown. Mild foxing on some leaves; limited, very light old waterstaining in latter half, this rising on a few leaves to "moderate" and being virtually all marginal; a few small stains from chemical reactions in paper. One marginal oxidized inkstain, slim but dark, offset onto next neighboring pages (only); two very small tears in last leaf. There is one short paragraph of => contemporary inked marginalia on one leaf, and one instance of underlining on another.

        Exercitia spiritualia

      Vienna: [in aedibus Caesari Collegii], , 1563. Hardcover. Very Good. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. 12mo., 141 (1) ff., 2 blank leaves, with woodcut device of the Jesuit order on t-p, full-page woodcut calendar on verso of D1, and numerous initials. Bound in contemporary vellum, title stenciled on spine, remains of ties. Reinforcement to gutter margin of title, which shows light foxing; two scored ownership inscriptions on pastedown and another on title. Some worming in blank upper margin of a few signatures, and some minor soiling, but generally a fresh and unsophisticated copy, excellent. Rare very early edition of this remarkable work, in a contemporary binding, a foundation document not only for the history of the Jesuit Order, but for the crucial role the Order played in the Counter-Reformation in Catholic Europe, and in its missionary activities which spanned the world, from England to Japan. This is the first edition to contain the founder's name on the title-page, relegated to the colophon in the second edition and omitted entirely in the first. The first edition published North of the Alps (see below for prior editions).The work leads the exercitant through four weeks of meditations to enable him to discover God's purpose for his life, and once this aim is revealed, to aid him in fulfilling it."The Spiritual Exercises are a special experience to be undergone, a shock-tactic spiritual gymnastic to be undertaken and performed under guidance, at some particular moment -- perhaps of inward crisis -- when new decisions and resolutions in life are called for or held to be desirable.... They were in a sense the systematized, de-mysticized quintessence of the process of Ignatius' own conversion and purposeful change of life, and they were intended to work a similar change in others" (Evennett).A landmark in the literature of spiritual examination, the work's imprint would be felt in such secular works as Montaigne's Essais, Descartes' Meditations, and, as Prof. Louis Martz has convincingly argued in The Poetry of Meditation, on seventeenth century English "metaphysical" poets, like Donne. It is generally supposed that Ignatius composed the work in the 1520's, when at Loyola and Manresa, but it was not published until 1548 (Rome), and again in 1553 (Coimbra). All early editions of the Exercitia are of great rarity: OCLC lists four copies of the 1548, all but one in Jesuit institutions: USF,LC, Woodstock(=Georgetown), Loyola (Chicago); two copies of the Coimbra 1553: Canisius College and Kansas; and three copies of the present edition, again, all in Jesuit institutions: Fordham, BC and Loyola Marymont. * DeBacker-Sommervogel V.61; Palau 291086; not in Adams; Bangert, A History of the Society of Jesus 11ff; PMM 74; O'Malley, John, W.

        DE VITA & MORIBUS SACERDOTUM OPUFEULUM, EORUM DIGNITATEM OFTENDENS, & QUIBUS ORNATI VIRTUTIBUS ESSE DEBEANT.

      Joannem do Roigny, Paris 1563 - Text in Latin. Iudoci Clichtovei (1472-1543) was born in Nieuport, Flanders, and died in Chartres. He earned a doctorate in theology in 1506, and was appointed to a professorship at the Sorbonne. He played an active role in the Council of Sens. This work is an effort to refute the doctrines set forth by Luther and other reformers. Includes explanation and defence of the seven sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church, five of which were denied by the Protestant reformers. According to H.M. Adams, this work was first published in 1519 and reprinted in 1558, perhaps with revisions. (Adams, Catalogue of Books Printed on the Continent of Europe 1501-1600 in Cambridge Libraries I, 2196). Bumped and rubbed at edges, front hinge cracked, bookplate of P.P.C. Lammens (1762-1836), librarian of the University of Ghent, on front pastedown.
