        La terza parte di Amadis di Grecia, intitolta aggiunta di Amadis di Grecia. Nuovamente ritrovata ne gli Annali di Trabisonda, & portata nella lingua Spagnuola, Tradotta nella Italiana, per M. Mambrino Roseo da Fabriano.

Petit in-8, plein maroquin rouge, dos muet a 4 nerfs gothiques, tranches marbrees (rel. moderne), (24), 312, (1) p., vignette de titre a la Sybille, 2 lettrines illustrees, caracteres italiques. Premiere edition italienne, traduite par Mambrino Rosco, de cette suite 'd'Amadis de Gaule' qui connut un succes considerable a travers toute l'Europe. Cervantes, qui ironisa sur le style de Feliciano de Silva, en fit l'auteur favori de Don Quichotte: "Y de todos ellos ninguno le parecian tan bien como los que compuso el famoso Feliciano de Silva, porque la claridad de su prosa y aquellas intrincadas razones suyas le parecian de perlas" ('Don Quixote', Chap. I). (Brunet, I, 218. Melzi, 'Bibliografia dei romanzi e poemi cavallereschi italiani (2. ed.), 770. Palau y Dulcet, 10558). Provenance: le celebre peintre de portraits Daniel Dumoustier (1574-1646), avec sa signature autographe sur le titre, a la page 1 et a la fin de l'ouvrage. Peintre du dauphin Louis XIII et dessinateur renomme, il connut un grand succes. Il est egalement celebre pour ses collections de curiosites. Bon exemplaire, frais, bien relie..

        [Meir Nativ.] Concordantias hebraicas [she-hiber he-hacham ha-muvhak Rabi Mordechai Natan].

      Venedig, Alvise Bragadini, 1564.. (416) Bll. Hebräische Type, 4 Spalten. Mit Holzschnittdruckermarke am Titel. Lederband des 17. Jhs. auf 6 Doppelbünden mit Rückenvergoldung sowie goldgepr. Deckelfileten und Jesuiten-Supralibros. Dreiseitiger Farbschnitt. Folio.. Seltene zweite venezianische Ausgabe der erstmals 1523 (bei Bomberg) erschienenen ersten hebräischen Bibelkonkordanz, hier mit lateinischer Widmung an Maggio Parentini. Die Wörter sind etymologisch nach ihren Wurzeln und Stämmen geordnet, die Bücher in der Reihenfolge der Vulgata. Der in Arles geborene Rabbiner Isaak Nathan ben Kalonimus (fl. 1400-48) stellte das üblicherweise als "Meir Nativ" ("Licht des Weges") bekannte Werk 1437-47 zusammen, um das Studium der Bibelexegese zu erleichtern und um zum Christentum konvertierte Juden davon abzuhalten, in Religionskontroversen die Bibel falsch zu zitieren (vgl. Jewish Encyclopaedia). Nathan verkehrte selbst in christlichen Gelehrtenkreisen und beteiligte sich an theologischen Disputationen mit seinen christlichen Kollegen. Als Grundlage für das vorliegende Werk verwendete er bezeichnenderweise eine Bibelkonkordanz des Franziskaners Arlotto de Prato. Bisweilen (wie hier) wird das Werk fälschlich Isaaks Neffen, Mordechai Nathan, zugeschrieben. - Durchgehend rot regliert; der gelbe Schnitt etwas in die Ränder eindringend. Der Titel leicht braunfleckig; zu Beginn geringe Eckläsuren, sonst sehr sauber und kaum gebräunt. Hs.

Rückentitel. 8vo.. Zweite Ausgabe des erstmals 1563 erschienenen Werkes von Johannes Wier (Weyer, 1516-88), welches später zahlreiche Auflagen erlebte und auf den Index der verbotenen Bücher gesetzt wurde. Wiers Schrift wurde zum Grundlagenwerk für Gegner der Hexenprozesse, indem sie frühere gelehrte Argumente gegen die Verfolgungen systematisierte. - Unbedeutend gebräunt; gegen Ende leichter Wasserrand; Papierdurchbrüche im Bl. a3 alt restauriert. Der schön erhaltene Rollenstempeleinband nur gering berieben mit minimalen Wurmspuren. Provenienz: Ein Jahr nach dem Druck gebunden für einen nicht identifizierten "S. P.", wohl aus dem sächsischen Raum (die Rolle signiert "BM", d. i. der Mitte des 16. Jhs. aktive Dresdner Meister Balthasar Metzger, der bereits 1546 vom sächsischen Stecher "BR" angefertigtes Stempelmaterial übernahm; vgl. Haebler I, 278ff. und 361ff.). Bald darauf finden wir den Band in der Slowakei, nämlich im Besitz des aus Deutschliptsch gebürtigen Pfarrers und Superintendenten in Neudorf (Iglo) Johann Jantschius (Jantsky Janos, gest. nach 1600), der ihn am 8. Februar 1584 dem Käsmarker Pastor Sebastian Ambrosius schenkte (eigenh. Widmungsvermerk am Vorsatz: "tes mnemes kai philias heneka"). Hernach in der Sammlung des hungaro-slowakischen Diplomaten und Humanisten Georg Thurzo (1567-1616), ab 1606 ungarischer Palatin. Der hochgebildete Mäzen vieler Künstler und Gelehrter, Korrespondent des Königs James von England und Kurfürsten Johann Georg von Sachsen, machte seinen Herrschaftssitz in Nagybiccse (Bytca) zum kulturellen Zentrum, wo er in der Südwestrotunde des Schlosses eine große Bibliothek unterhielt und wo Theatervorführungen, Konzerte sowie theologisch-philosophische Dispute stattfanden (sein Supralibros "Comes Georgius Thurzo Regni Hungariae Palatinus" wohl erst im ersten Jahrzehnt des 17. Jahrhunderts hinzugefügt). Die Sammlung wurde nach seinem Tod im Erbweg verstreut: Teile gerieten in die Bibliotheca Esterhazyana, andere in die Sammlungen der Familien Jakusics, Thököly und Illeshazy - VD 16, W 2664.

        Novae qvestiones sphaerae, hoc est, de circvlis coelestibvs, et primo mobili, in gratiam studiosae iuuentutis scriptae. (bound with) Primus tractatvs brevis et vtilitis de tempore, con scriptus in gratium studiosorum.

      Johannes Crato 1564; 1563 I: With woodcut armillary sphere on title, text woodcuts, and 3 folding tables, no volvelles as is most often the case. II: With woodcut armillary sphere on title, text woodcuts, and 11 folding tables. Bound in contemporary limp; vellum made from an early fifteenth-century manuscript sewn ?Greek style? through the spine; small paper flaw (pp. 97-98), minor tears and repairs to tables, contemporary annotations. I. First edition. This introduction to astronomy by the Wittenberg professor of mathematics, written in the form of a series of questions and answers, became the standard astronomy text for German universities. Theodoricus (1501-1578) was quite familiar with the writings of Copernicus, yet he held out for the immobility of the earth. ?He cites Copernicus as well as Ptolemy for the relative magnitudes of earth and sun. He gives Copernicus? figures for the maximum and minimum declination of the sun, and his estimate that this movement of the ecliptic approaching and receding from the equator is completed in 1717 years . . . Theodoricus contended that elementary spherics such as his own were necessary for all students of the liberal arts and not merely for those who were to go on in astronomy? (Thorndike). II: First edition of Garcaeus? first treatise on time measurement. The author here correlates the time measurements of the ancients (Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, etc.) with the contemporary Julian calendar utilizing various astronomical measurements, including lunar and solar cycles, rise and fall of fixed stars, and the movements of the planets, all of which are charted on the eleven folding tables. ?An astrologer, astronomer and meteorologist of some note . . . [he] referred to Copernicus as the ?outstanding artificer of our age?. He was not, however, speaking of the heliocentric theory but of the Copernican perpetual canons of mean motions and equations? (Thorndike). Houzeau-Lancaster notes that this first edition was put on the Papal Index. On the final page is a poem dedication to Johannes Regiomontanus in German. Garcaeus (1530-1575), a pupil of Peucer at Wittenberg, became an astrologer, astronomer and meteorologist of some note, according to Thorndike. He wrote a number of works on topics of astronomy and meteorology, plus two additional works on time measurement, both published in 1565. He apparently conformed to Ptolemaic astrological principles, and believed that ?[astrology] was not against freedom of the will, and that God often acted against secondary causes (i.e. the stars). Ultimately Garcaus became bishop of Neu-Brandenburg.

        TEXT ON TYPES OF FEVERS AND THEIR CURES

      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.

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.

        [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.
