      Italy [perhaps Bologna], late, 1375. Hardcover. From a Very Rare 14th Century Work on Fevers,No Edition of Which Was Ever Printed. 267 x 330 mm (10 1/2 x 13"). Double column, up to 60 lines (of a larger number) in a small, regular gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, initial spaces left blank. Creased, rubbed, and stained from use as a binding cover (perhaps for documents dated 1564-66, as those dates appear written in manuscript on one side of the vellum), the other side pasted over with paper lining, with the text largely obscured, pieces of inch-wide leather straps laced through the text of one column, a dozen wormholes causing minor damage to the text; not without significant problems, but an early example from an uncommon and desirable medical text in usable condition. This is a leaf from an extremely rare medical work, written just a few years after the ravages of the Black Death and apparently never printed. A treatise on fevers and practical medicine, the "Practica Medicinalis" is attributed to Thomas of Breslau (or Wroclaw), Bishop of Sarepta (1297 - ca. 1378); our bifolium discusses types of fever and their appropriate remedies. One of the recommendations is the application of powdered beaver testicles, for which the animals were hunted to extinction in Europe. The first column, which is the most legible, is close to, and sometimes reproduces exact wording from, the "De Morbis Membrorum," book III, attributed to the Spanish alchemist, astrologer, and physician Arnaldus de Villanova (ca. 1235 - ca. 1311). Arnaldus translated a number of medical works from the Arabic, including Avicenna and Qusta ibn Luqa (Costa ben Luca). What we know about the author here comes almost entirely from the "explicit" or final paragraph of the "Practica," in which Thomas tells us that he began the work in the year 1360, when he was 63 years of age; that he was a canon regular of the Order of Prémonstré (the Norbertines); that he had practiced as a physician in various areas of Europe before settling in Breslau; and that he was bishop of Sarepta. It is likely he studied medicine at Montpellier, as he extensively cites works by two professors there--Gilbert the Englishman and Bernard of Gordon--in this work. The "Practica" is the final section in a four-part work and the one that most reflects the author's own experience in therapeutic matters. The other three parts are: "Regimen Sanitatis" (a basic guide to healthy living), "Aggregatum" (simple medicines), and "Antidotarium" (composite medicines). Given the context of the devastating plague that swept through Europe in 1348-50, a leaf from this work, begun just a decade later, is an unusually resonant link to a frightening period when a book like the "Practica" would have been especially useful and highly valued.

      Duisberg: Gerard Mercator, 1564. unbound. very good. Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 14" x 16.25". Beautiful map of western coast of ancient Wales, with Latin text on the back. Includes Isle of Man. From "Angliae Scotiae & Hibernie" originally published in 1564. Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today. Full original margins, minor foxing.

        [OPERA] CON L'ESPOSITIONI DI CHRISTOFORO LANDINO, et D'Alessandro Vellutello. Sopra la sua Comedia dell'Inferno, del Purgatorio, del Paradiso. Con tavole, argomenti, & allegorie, & riformato, riveduto, & ridotto alla sua vera lettura, per Francesco Sansovino Fiorentino

      Venice: Giovambattista Marchio Sessa, & fratelli, 1564. First of the Edition, First Sansovino edition, First edition with a portrait of Dante. With a fine woodcut title page and 96 woodcut illustrations, including three full-page, 77 large cuts in the text. Of the cuts, there are 37 for the Inferno, 24 for Purgatorio, and 27 for Paradiso, and numerous head- and tailpieces. Printer's woodcut device on the final leaf. Folio, very fine and handsome antique Italian calf, the spine with raised bands ruled in gilt, there is a single red/brown morocco label gilt lettered and ruled. [28 ff.), 163, [4 ff.], 164-393 pp. A very handsome and very well preserved copy in a very pleasing state of preservation. Rare in full antique calf. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS HISTORIC PRINTING OF ONE OF THE GREAT BOOKS IN THE MIND OF MAN. This is the first edition of Dante edited by Francisco Sansovino, incorporating two commentaries: that of Christoforo Landino, which first appeared in the Florentine edition of 1481, and the noteworthy commentary of Alessandro Velutello, first published at Venice in 1544. The volume includes extensive introductory matter by all three commentators, and a running commentary that virtually overwhelms the poem itself. The woodcuts in this edition are taken from those in Velutello's edition of 1544 and represent a departure, both iconographically and stylistically, from those in the Brescia, 1487 edition--they appear more accomplished and more confident in execution. Francesco Sansovino recovered Vellutello’s commentary, never printed in Italy again until this time (except for a Lyonese reprint of 1551). This edition, printed here first in 1564, is very important because it is richly illustrated with many woodcuts taken from the edition of 1544 printed by Marcolini. The portrait of Dante on the title-page, inspired in Vasari’s tradition, is quite famous and this edition is commonly known as ‘of the big nose’. The portrait most likely comes from two paintings by Vasari, now at the Oriel College of Oxford and at the Museum of Fine Arts in Cleveland.

        [Most fruitfull and learned commentaries of Doctor Peter Martir Vermil Florentine]

      [London: John Day, 1564]. Folio (31 cm, 12.25"). 288 ff. (6 prelim. ff. {incl. t.-p.} & 8 final lacking). First edition in English of In librum Judicum commentarii doctissimi, Peter Martyr's commentary on the Book of Judges. The author (1499–1562) was an Italian theologian who, like Luther, began his religious life as an Augustinian friar but converted to the Protestant cause. He was closely associated on the continent with Ochino, Bucer, and some prominent Lutherans, and, while in England where he held the Regius Chair of Divinity at Oxford, was an intimate of Thomas Cranmer and Bishop Jewel. Here, among other points, he examines the natures of government and of political resistance, and debates Catholic reasoning for temporal power of the clergy. => The text is printed almost entirely in black-letter with decorative capitals. Provenance & Evidence of Readership: Various inked annotations including ownership inscriptions and doodles by one Richard Weaver, with Weaver's inscriptions dated 1718 through 1722; a few instances of underlining and one marginal note appearing to have been done by an earlier hand — possibly an overly enthusiastic John Asterley, as one annotation reads "John Asterley not his Booke 1694." Occasional early inked corrections, including the lining-through of what would seem to be a rather crucial => "not" in one theological statement. STC (rev. ed.) 24670; ESTC S117825; NCBEL, I, 1860. Period-style morocco, spine with raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label; blind ruling from bands extending decoratively onto covers and these also framed in blind. Lacking six preliminary leaves and eight final (including the title-page, Day's prefatory letters, the final table, and the colophon); lower (closed) edges institutionally rubber-stamped, first page with inked numeral in lower margin, no other markings. First leaf and one other early one each with lower portion repaired some time ago not affecting text, and final leaf with portion of outer margin repaired with losses to three shouldernotes; other old and some recent repairs to margins or corners. Pages age-toned with intermittent smudges, spots, and waterstaining, none devastating; one leaf with portion of lower margin (only) torn away. One leaf slightly roughly excised between leaves 116 and 117, with both text and pagination continuous and uninterrupted regardless; one clean stub between 118 and 119. Annotations and doodles as above. The primary body of text is present and => complete here despite losses at front and back, and offers interesting evidence of engagement (or lack thereof?) by multiple readers.

        XVIII Histoires Tragiques

      1564. Romeo, Oh, Romeo! Where for Art Thou?"Here, Dear Juliet, Here."[SHAKESPEARE SOURCE]. BANDELLO, Matteo, and BELLEFOREST, François de, and BOISTEAU, Pierre. XVIII Histoires Tragiques. Extraictes des oeuvres Italiennes de Bandel, & mises en langue Françoise. Les six premieres, par Pierre Boisteau, sur nommé Launay, natif de Bretaigne. Les douze fuiuans, par Franc. de Belle Forest, Comingeois. Paris: Laurens Chancelier, 1564Third collected edition (originally published in Lyon, 1560, and Paris 1563; all scarce) containing the source material for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Small octavo (4 3/8 x 2 3/4 in; 111 x 69 mm). [5], 6-874, [5], [1, blank] pp. Vignette to title page. Headpiece. Initials. Seventeenth century full speckled calf, covers with two-line blind stamped borders, board edges decoratively stamped in gilt. Expertly rebacked to style. Flat spine decorated in gilt, dark blue morocco gilt lettering label. From the library of the renowned book collector Adolph Lewisohn, with his red morocco book label on the front flyleaf. A wonderful copy of an extremely rare book.OCLC/KVK record only one copy in libraries worldwide; institutionally rarer than the 1560 (3 cc) and 1563 (2 cc) editions. No copies have been seen at auction during the last thirty-six years. There are only two known copies of this 1564 edition. Bandello's Romeo and Juliet is found here as Book III, p. 73.The first edition of Dominican friar Matteo Bandello's stories in the original Italian was published in Lucca, 1554. It contained 186 tales in various styles and genres ranging from the comic, bawdy, tragic, sentimental, and horrific. In 1559, Pierre Boisteau published a freely adapted French translation of six of Bandello's short stories. In the same year François de Belleforest published French translations of twelve more of Bandello's stories. In 1560, an edition from Lyon brought these eighteen stories into a single volume, reprinted by Vincent Norment & Jeanne Bruneau in Paris 1563. The volume under notice reprints these earlier editions, each an extreme scarcity, the volume here only a degree less so. It was these French translations that won broad European popularity for Bandello's tales.It was Arthur Brooke's 1562 English rendering into verse of Boisteau's French translation of Bandello's La sfortunata morte di dui infelicissimi amanti (here as L'Histoire de deux amans, dont l'un mourut de vénin, l'autre de tristesse ), under the title The Tragicall Historye of Romeus and Juliet, that William Shakespeare directly used as the basis for his classic drama. The original Brooke is virtually unobtainable in the marketplace, with only two institutional copies recorded and no auction records since 1975. Yet, as Stuart Gillespie notes, "It is clear that Brooke was working with a story already familiar to the English audience" (Shakespeare's Books, p. 67), and while Shakespeare extensively reworked Brooke's stiff and tortured verse, the basic narrative was already part of his consciousness to re-imagine as his own. The differences between the Brooke and Shakespeare narratives are as distinct as their similarities but they both owe their existence to Bandello. This volume, then, is much ado about something, something very special, a rare and rich opportunity to possess the original source for arguably the most famous and celebrated tragic drama in the English language by the Western world's most venerated playwright. Romeo and Juliet is believed to date from between 1591 and 1595. It first appeared in print in the quarto edition of 1597. Cf. Brunet I, 638 (Lyon edition). Cf. Adams B145 (variant imprint). Cf. STC French p. 40 (variant imprint)

Loss to leaves 31 and 32; Small tear from lower Ã&#130;¼ to top, approximately 1 centimeter in.<br><br>Francois Douaren (Latin: Franciscus Duarenus) was a French jurist and professor of law at the University of Bourges. Like his compatriots Jacques Cujas, Francois Hotman and Hugues Doneau, Douaren was one of the leading representatives of the legal humanist school of thought within the science of Roman law on the European continent. These 16th-century French law professors applied the philological methods of the Italian humanists to legal texts. It was their aim to arrive at a historically more accurate understanding of the texts of the Roman Corpus Iuris Civilis. The Sacris Ecclesiae is one such example of Douarens philosophical translations. In excellent condition for its age, this volume would make an exceptional addition to the library of any theologian or scholar of ancient philosophical practices.

      A VERY EARLY PICTURE OF A TENNIS MATCH, FIRST EDITION, 1564. Small 8vo approximately 175 x 115 mm, 7 x 4½ inches, 240 pages, LACKS 4 LEAVES, H6 I7 K4 N8, 157 woodcut emblems, should be 166, portrait of Sambucus on page 8, last 4 leaves show medals, page 133 shows the early illustration of a Tennis Match, bound in later vellum, marbled endpapers, edges stained blue. Binding slightly bowed, crude hand colouring to the title page, portrait and 1 emblem, 4 other emblems have slight pale colouriing, pale age-browning throughout, some pale stains to last 60 pages, not offensive, the 4 last leaves showing the medals have pale soiling and spotting, a few tips of corners missing, a few pages at begining have occasional old ink neat underlining and words translated from Greek to Latin, otherwise a good copy. "The tennis emblem had appeared in Guillaume de la Perrières's Le theatre des bons engins of 1539, and then in the Picta Poesis of Barthélémy Aneau (first edition 1552). Here the emblem is more refined, there is greater form to the rackets and dress of the players, and the tennis balls on the court floor are an important addition. While the net still appears to be a simple rope, two lines of the accompanying poem, 'Temporis iactura' ('A Waste of Time'), draw a comparison between the allure of tennis nets and the more useful nets used in hunting birds. Addressed 'Ad pilulam' ('To the tennis ball'), the poem treats the ball as the deceiver of the young men who waste their time chasing after it".

        De Catarrho Commentarius...Addita est in fine monstrosorum renum figura, nuper in cadavere repertorum

      Woodcut Aldine anchor on title & two full-page woodcuts. 89, [7] pp. 8vo, 18th-cent. vellum over boards (blank portion of title with three small holes). Paris: B. Turrisan, 1564. First edition of a book of exceptional rarity; this work is the first monograph on "summer catarrh" (or hay fever). It is the first accurate description of hay fever, one of the major allergic disorders. Botallo&#39;s book is absent from nearly all of the great collections of medicine. Botallo noted some healthy people who, after smelling certain flowers, suffered a runny nose and "explosive" sneezing. He describes the symptoms (headache, violent sneezing, and watery discharge from the nostrils and eyes, together with a hard dry cough), associates it with asthmatic attacks, and correctly identifies its causes. This work is also notable for the seven-page supplement at end, which "provides a careful description, accompanied by a detailed illustration, of an instance of fused kidneys with horseshoe configuration. This anomaly, too, had previously been observed and described, although more briefly, by Berengario da Carpi in the Isagogae (1522). Nonetheless, Botallo&#39;s detailed account indicates his interest in anatomy and his not inconsiderable ability as a dissector and observer."-D.S.B., II, p. 337. For more on this, see Benjamin & Schullian, "Observations on Fused Kidneys with Horseshoe Configuration: the Contribution of Leonardo Botallo (1564)" in Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences, V (1950), pp. 315-26. Botallo (ca. 1519-87/88), took his medical degree at Pavia and continued his studies at Padua with Falloppio. He achieved great repute as an anatomist and has long been known for his description of the ductus arteriosus or duct of Botallo. In his treatise on gunshot wounds, he, like Paré, advocated a milder treatment than currently in vogue. Botallo served as physician to Charles IX, Catherine de&#39; Medici, and her favorite son, the duke of Anjou, later Henry III. Fine copy. &#10087; Garrison-Morton 2581.99. .
