      Lione 1564 - Veduta della città tratta dal rarissimo Plantz, pourtraitz et descriptions de pusieurs villes et forteresses stampato a Lione dall’editore Jean d’Ogerolles. L’opera deriva da quella pubblicata sempre a Lione nel 1552 da Guillaume Guéroult nel Premier livre des figures et portraitz des villes, edita da Balthazar Arnouellet, da cui d’Ogerolles acquisì parte del fondo tipografico. Pertanto possiamo affermare che questa matrice in legno sia la stessa stampata alcuni anni prima, alla quale furono apportate delle correzioni nella cornice e nel titolo. Xilografia, in perfetto stato di conservazione. View tjfrom the most rare Plantz, pourtraitz et descriptions de pusieurs villes et forteresses printed in Lyon by Jean d’Ogerolles. The work derives from the one published again in Lyon in 1552 by Guillaume Guéroult in the Premier livre des figures et portraitz des villes, edita da Balthazar Arnouellet, from which d’Ogerolles acquired part of his collection. We can therefore state that the wooden plate of this work is the same one that has been used a few years before, with some correction in the title and the frame. Woodcut, in perfect condition.

First Breugel edition of the "nieu geusen liet boeck", the most popular songbook of the Dutch Republic with songs about the victories against Spain and satirical songs against the papists. The name "geuzen" was adopted by the Dutch who opposed the Spanish rule in the Netherlands. Most of the songs probably originated from one-leaf prints and pamphlets with popular songs about military events, rhymed news reports, and propaganda songs. The songbook also contains "Wilhelmus van Nassaue", the Dutch national anthem, and many other songs with a nationalistic or Calvinistic character. Most of the songs were written anonymously, but the book also includes song by Coornhert, Lucas d'Heere, Arent Dircsz. Vos, Jan Fruytiers and Dirck Adriaensz. Valcoogh.Lacking the title-page to part 2 (A1). Browned throughout with some occasional foxing, edges frayed and frequent water stains, mostly marginal. Binding in very good condition.

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1564.. 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, there are 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 WITH THE DECORATED BORDER AND SLIGHTLY BETTER IMPRESSION THAN SOME LATER EDITIONS, 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 colouring, 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 beginning 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".

        [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.

        Venere punta dalle spine

      1564 - Bulino, 1564, datato e firmato "Gas/ .P. F. /1564" su una tavoletta sotto il piede di Cupido; su un’altra tavoletta, in basso al centro, l’iscrizione L./PENIS/.R./.IN.' Da un soggetto di Luca Penni. Nel margine inferiore, due distici in latino 'Mortiferis spinis toto sum corpore loesa./Purpurea estq. meo sanguine facta rosa./Dulcis amor causa est: sed nil mea vulnera curo./Eripiam crudis dum puerum manibus'. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre, con l’indirizzo di Antonio Lafrery aggiunto in basso a destra all’excudit di Niccolò Nelli posto al centro, tra i due distici. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata, con filigrana non leggibile, completa della linea marginale, una piega di carta sul margine sinistro, verso il basso, nel complesso in eccellente stato di conservazione. Questa magnifica incisione, è una copia, nello stesso verso e all’incirca delle stesse dimensioni, di un bulino di Giorgio Ghisi, datata 1556. Si tratta di una delle sei incisioni, finora conosciute, che nel 1564 Gaspar ab Avibus dal suo maestro Giorgio Ghisi. L’inventor dichiarato del soggetto è Luca Penni, pittore e disegnatore. Alla lettera "Sono ferita i tutto il corpo da spine mortali/ e col il mio sangue ho reso purpurea la rosa/ l’Amore ne è la causa, ma non mi preoccupo delle ferite/ finchè (non) strapperò dalle mani crudeli il fanciullo. Nell’incisione è raffigurata in primo piano Venere, con i piedi immersa nell’acqua che osserva di nascosto la scena sullo sfondo con Adone inseguito da Marte. I versi chiariscono l’immagine: "Sono ferita i tutto il corpo da spine mortali/ e col il mio sangue ho reso purpurea la rosa/ l’Amore ne è la causa, ma non mi preoccupo delle ferite/ finchè (non) strapperò dalle mani crudeli il fanciullo." Venere è stata punta da alcune spine e il suo sangue ha colorato di rosso una rosa. La dea però non si cura delle ferite perché ha in animo di salvare il giovane e amato Adone dalle "mani crudele" di Marte. Secondo alcune versioni del mito infatti, la dea di punge con una spina di rosa mentre sta correndo in soccorso di Adone inseguito da Marte e macchiate dal sangue della dea, le rose da bianche diventarono rosse. Engraving, 1564, inscrideb on a tablet lower right "Gas/ .P. F. /1564". Inscribed on a tablet lower centre: '.L./PENIS/.R./.IN.', and in the lower margin with a Latin poem of two distychs: 'Mortiferis spinis toto sum corpore loesa./Purpurea estq. meo sanguine facta rosa./Dulcis amor causa est: sed nil mea vulnera curo./Eripiam crudis dum puerum manibus'. Example in the second state, of three, with "Ant. Lafrerij Formis" added in the bottom right corner to the inscription "Niccolaus /Nelli exc" in a diamond in center of bottom margin. Magnificent example, rich tones and good contrast, printed on laid paper with an unidentified watermark, complete of the marginal line, a paper fold in the left margin, overall in excellent condition. This magnificent work is a copy, in the same direction and about the same size, after Giorgio Ghisi’engraving, dated 1556. It is one of six engravings, so far known, that in 1564 Gaspar ab Avibus made after his teacher Giorgio Ghisi. The composition for this print is based on a design (now lost) by Luca Penni, who in turn was influenced by an episode in the Hypnerotomachia Polifili, as can be seen in the poses of the three main figures. In this episode, Venus scratches her leg upon a rosebush, while Mars attacks Adonis. It is the blood of Venus which transforms the white rose to red. The Latin inscription at the bottom of this Ghisi print gives us a clue as to what is happening: "With deadly thorns I have been wounded in my whole body, and the rose has become purple through my blood/ Sweet love is the cause, but in no way do I care for my wounds [i.e., I won't attend to my wounds at all] Until I rescue the boy from cruel hands" A very rare work G. Streliotto, Gaspar ab Avibus, p. 24 n. 4; Bartsch XV, 400 n. 40; Lewis, p. 95 n. 22; Bellini, pp. 129-13

La fonte cartografica di queste due mappe è tuttora sconosciuta; se le fonti cartografiche ed i toponimi nelle mappe derivano dalla precedenti di Gastaldi (1548) e Ruscelli (1561), la morfologia delle isole è assolutamente differente e risulta molto distorta. Un recente articolo sulle opere di Paolo Forlani uscito su Map Forum, numero 11, descrive tre stati delle mappe, di cui il secondo con le iniziali nel cartiglio di Ferrando Bertelli. Tuttavia ci sentiamo di dissentire da questa ipotesi, in quanto le due carte del Bertelli sono molto simili ma realizzate con un’altra lastra. Come giustamente fa notare Meurer la tavola del Bertelli è copiata da questo modello di Paolo Forlani. Magnifico esemplare. Two maps on one sheet, 1564, signed and dated on the plate. Example in the first state of two, before the address of Peter de Nobili. Beautiful engravings printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark "Lamb in the circle", with wide margins, in excellent conditions. The cartographic source of these two maps is unknown; but if the cartographic sources in the maps and place names are derived from previous Gastaldi (1548) and Brooks (1561), the morphology of the islands is very different. A recent article about Forlani published on Map Forum, n. 11, describes three states of these maps, and the second presents a cartouche with the initials of Ferrando Bertelli. However we would like to disagree with this hypothesis, since the two maps by Bertelli are very similar but printed from a different plate. Meurer shows Bertelli’s example, after this model of Paolo Forlani.

        En candidi Lectores, elegantioris Italiae partis, Tusciae scilicet Topographiam

      Roma 1564 - - RARISSIMO ESEMPLARE DELLA TIRATURA GRAZIANI/DE NOBILI - In alto a destra, in una targa incorniciata da fregi, una breve descrizione ai lettori del territorio rappresentato En candidi Lectores, elegantioris Italiae partis, Tusciae scilicet Topographiam, aeneis n[ost]ris formis excussam in hac Tabella vobis denuo damus, atque ita quidem absolute, ut nihil amplius, in ea desiderali possit, praesertim quod, cum adiacentibus Umbriae, Aemiliae, Lombardiae, et Liguriae partibus ad unguem fuerit effigiata. In qua conficienda haec nos praestare conati sumus, ut singulas urbes, oppida, Montes, Flumina, Lacus, Portus, Insulsas, et memoratu digna Littoribus maris Tusci adiacentia promontoria diligentissime describeremus. Quae omnia ab his qui oculata fide nobis cuncta retulerunt didicimus. Non Vos pigeat igitur optimi Lectores ha[n]c Tabellam paulum ociose contemplari sigermani et exactam Tusciae descriptionem intelligere desideratis. Romae Anno M.D.LXIIII. In basso a destra, la scala grafica di 30 miglia pari a mm 85, sotto l’iscrizione Locorum distantiam sic inuenies Aperto Circino cape quaesiti loci distantiam e amque ad lineas has applica, mox lineolae cercini pedibus inclusae maioresque secantes militaria in dìcabunt, quod si distantia inuenta maior ipsa linea sit, per partes re expedire oportebit. Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro, con il nome dei venti TRAMONTANA, OSTRO, LEVANTE, PONENTE. La graduazione ai margini è disegnata, ma senza riportarne i valori. Acquaforte e bulino, con margini, restauri perfettamente eseguiti visibili al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Altra derivazione della Toscana del Bellarmati. Questa tavola è molto simile alla carta del Salamanca edita a Roma nel 1560 circa, e una delle poche da lui firmate mentre era in società con il Lafreri. La mappa che descriviamo, edita a Roma quattro anni dopo, per quanto riguarda i dati geo-cartografici mostra poche differenze con la precedente, mentre si notano alcuni cambiamenti nelle decorazioni, il disegno della scala grafica è spostato (ma è priva anche qui delle miglia), nel mare non ci sono imbarcazioni mentre, invece, la descrizione del territorio raffigurato è la medesima, anche se in questa ultima la si trova distribuita in parte nel cartiglio e in parte sotto la scala grafica. Siamo portati a pensare che la tavola in esame sia stata ristampata dal Lafreri da un nuovo rame, dopo lo scioglimento della società con Francesco Salamanca (1563 circa) che era succeduto al padre. La carta è rarissima: ne abbiamo riscontrato un esemplare del primo stato alla Biblioteca Nazionale di Firenze e in una collezione privata, e due copie alla Newberry Library e alla Biblioteca Nazionale di Roma. Il secondo stato, firmato da Pietro de Nobili ePaolo Graziani, e databile circa al 1582, è alla National Library of Malta.

        De morbo gallico [sic] liber absolutissimus a Petro Angelo Agatho Materate.Additus etiam est in calce de Morbo Callico tractatus, Antonii Fracanciani Bononiae in loco eminentis scientiae faeliciter legentis

      Lucam Bertellum; Christopher Gryphium, Padua 1564 - Title page to each work. Three lovely woodblock text initials. Half-calf with paper boards; some leaves lightly water-stained along lower corners, otherwise an excellent copy. First edition of two rare treatises on syphilis. "In this classic work on 'the French disease,' Fallopius wrote more knowingly of the Europe-wide scourge of syphilis than previous authors on the subject and was one of the first to oppose the use of mercury in its treatment." Posthumously printed, Fallopius (1523-1562) was a surgeon and professor at Ferrar, Pisa and Padua where he succeeded his own teacher Vesalius. He here asserts his belief that syphilis was brought to Europe from America by the associates of Columbus, and strongly recommends the use of guaiac wood for its cure, though he also mentions certain other remedies.The second treatise on the same subject is by Fracanzano (1500?-1569), who became professor of medicine at Padua in 1539.There is a variant issue of De morbo dated 1563 on the title (although the colophon is dated 1564). The two versions differ only in the resetting of the date on the title. OCLC locates 9 copies total of both variants in America.

        CANONES, et Decreta Sacrosancti Oecumenici et Generalis Concilii Tridentini, sub Paulo III, Julio III, et Pio IIII, Pontificibus max. Index Dogmatum, et Reformationis.

      Venetiis, 1564. - in-8. 184ff. numérotés. 24ff. Demi-basane moderne genre ancien, dos orné à froid. Rare réimpression en petit format de la seconde édition in-folio des célèbres Actes du Conciles de Trente. En 1564 la fin du Concile de Trente, qui avait commencé ses assemblées dès 1545, donna lieu à un phénomène éditorial considérable avec la diffusion de ses décrets dans tout le monde catholique. La présente édition constitue l'une des premières éditions publiées par l'imprimeur officiel du Concile, le célèbre Paul Manuce, et à ce titre elle est décrite par Renouard. "Les éditions originales du Concile de Trente seront toujours précieuses, en ce qu'elles sont les copies authentiques des décrets d'une assemblée célèbre, dont les décisions ont eu une aussi puissante et aussi durable influence sur le sort de l'Europe entière, et d'une partie de l'Amérique. L'impression fut confiée par Pie IV à Paul Manuce, qui, de tous les Imprimeurs alors existant étoit, certes, le plus en état de soigner une édition à la publication de laquelle on attachoit une très-haute importance. Un tel livre devoit trouver une foule d'acheteurs, dans ces temps où les décisions de l'Eglise étoient la suprême loi (.); aussi plusieurs éditions furent-elles aussitôt enlevées que publiées". Annotations manuscrites de l'époque dans les marges. Tache angulaire aux derniers feuillets. Quelques rousseurs. Renouard, Annales de l'Imprimerie des Alde, p.192: "Cette édition porte l'avis de Paul Manuce mais point le privilège du Pape; elle n'a, comme la précédente de Venise, d'autre marque que l'ancre aldine sur le titre avec le mot AL DUS, et la date Venetiis, MDLXIIII".

        Opuscula anatomica.

      Venice: Vincentius Luchinus excudebat, 1564. First edition, very rare, of one of the most important of all anatomical books. It includes the first specific treatise on the kidney, the first account of the Eustachian tube in the ear, the first description of the thoracic duct, and the Eustachian valve, as well as the first systematic study of teeth. The fine etchings illustrating the edition "were the first eight in an intended series of forty-seven anatomical plates engraved by Giulio de' Musi after drawings by Eustachi and his relative, Pier Matteo Pini, an artist. These were prepared in 1552 to illustrate a projected book entitled De dissensionibus ac controversiis anatomicis, the text of which was lost after Eustachi's death. Had the full series of plates been published at the time of their completion, Eustachi would have ranked with Vesalius as a founder of modern anatomy" (Norman). ?Grolier One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 21; Heirs of Hippocrates 322; Norman 739. Garrison-Morton 801. "In 1562 and 1563 Eustachi wrote a series of anatomical treatises on the kidneys ("De renum structura"), the organ of hearing ("De auditus organis"), the venous system ("De vena quae azygos graecis dicitur") and the teeth ("De dentibus"), which he issued together under the title Opuscula anatomica. The treatise on the kidney, the first work devoted specifically to the organ, showed a detailed knowledge of the kidney surpassing any earlier work; it contained the first account of the adrenal (suprarenal) gland and a correct determination of the relative levels of the kidneys. The treatise on the ear provided the first post-classical account of the Eustachian tube, while the work on the azygos vein contained the first description of the thoracic duct and of the valvula venae in the right ventricle of the heart, the so-called "Eustachian valve." In his treatise on dentistry Eustachi was the first to study the teeth in any great detail: basing his work on the dissection of fetuses and stillborn infants, he gave an important description of the first and second dentitions, described the hard outer tissue and soft inner structure of the teeth, and attempted an explanation of the problem (not yet completely solved) of the sensitivity of the tooth's hard structure. This last work was also issued separately: it bears its own title-leaf dated 1563" (Norman). The long search for the missing plates culminated in their discovery in the hands of a descendant of Pier Matteo Pini and their publication as Tabulae anatomicae (Rome, 1714) by Giovanni Maria Lancisi, the physician of Pope Clement XI and a successor to Eustachio in the chair of anatomy at the Sapienza. "The plates are strikingly modern, produced without the conventional sixteenth-century decorative accompaniments and framed on three sides by numbered rules providing coordinates by which any part of the image could be located... The images are generic figures, composites of many anatomical observations, and are mathematically as well as representationally exact" (ibid.). Relatively little is known about the life of Bartolomeo Eustachi. He was born in San Severino, most probably in the district of Ancona, although some authors maintain that it may have been San Severino in Calabria. His year of birth has been given as 1500, 1510, 1513 (most probable), 1520, and even 1524. Bartolomeo was the son of Mariano Eustachi, a celebrated physician said to be of noble family, and Francesca (Benvenuti) Eustachi. Mariano insisted upon a well-rounded humanistic education, in the course of which Eustachi acquired such an excellent knowledge of Greek, Hebrew, and Arabic that he was able to edit an edition of the Hippocratic glossary of Erotian (1566) and is said to have made his own translations of Avicenna from the Arabic. He appears to have studied medicine at the Archiginnsio della Sapenza in Rome, but it is not known precisely when. He began to practice medicine about 1540. Eustachi's talents were soon noticed by the duke of Urbino, who requested Eustachi as his personal physician. In 1547, Eustachi accepted the invitation to serve as physician to the duke's brother, Cardinal Giulio della Rovere, whom Eustachi followed to Rome in 1549. There he became protomedico and was invited to join the medical faculty of the Collegia della Sapienza as the equivalent of professor of anatomy. This academic position granted him permission to obtain cadavers for dissection from the hospitals of Santo Spirito and Consolazione. With advancing years Eustachi was so severely afflicted by gout that he was compelled to resign his post at the Sapienza. He continued, however, to serve Cardinal della Rovere, and it was in response to the cardinal's summons to Fossombrone in 1574 that he set forth, only to die on the way.

        Canones, et Decreta Sacrosancti Oecumenici, et Generalis Concilii Tridentini sub Paulo III, Iulio III, Pio IIII, Pontificibus Max [Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent]

      1st Edition Rome: Aldine Press/ Aldus [Paulum Manutium], 1564. EXTREMELY RARE FIRST PRINTING of the Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent, one of the most important publications in the history of the Catholic Church; printed by Paulus Manutius and Aldus the Younger of the Aldine Press and the request of Pope Pius IV. The Council of Trent (1545-63), was "highly important for its sweeping decrees on self-reform and for its dogmatic definitions that clarified virtually every doctrine contested by the Protestants. Despite internal strife, external dangers, and two lengthy interruptions, the council played a vital role in revitalizing the Roman Catholic Church in many parts of Europe. Pius IV confirmed the council's decrees in 1564 and published a summary of its doctrinal statements; observance of disciplinary decrees was imposed under sanctions. In short order the catechism of Trent appeared, the missal and breviary were revised, and eventually a revised version of the Bible was published. By the end of the century, many of the abuses that had motivated the Protestant Reformation had disappeared, and the Roman Catholic Church had reclaimed many of its followers in Europe" (Britannica). ??Commissioned by Pius IV, Paulus Manutius of the esteemed Aldine Press traveled to Rome to produce the beautifully printed summary of the doctrines, decrees, and conclusions of the Council. With engraved initials throughout and the large familiar Aldine anchor device printed on title. ??There were several printing of the Canones in 1564. This is the FIRST PRINTING, with undated privilege on verso of title, pagination in Roman numerals, and final dated leaf at page CCXXXIX.??Canones, et Decreta Sacrosancti Oecumenici, et Generalis Concilii Tridentini sub Paulo III, Iulio III, Pio IIII, Pontificibus Max. Romae: Paulum Manutium, Aldi F., 1564. Folio (210x284mm), eighteenth century full speckled calf. Top of spine chipped. Early owner signature on title page; some underlined passages with old handwritten annotations in the margins.. Early repair in a blank area of the title. Occasional foxing; mild dampstaining towards the end of the book. A large, wide-margined copy in elegant 18th-century binding. SCARCE. Very Good.

(Heirs of Hippocrates, p.123). "He distinguished between syphilitic and non-syphilitic condylomata" (Garrison-Morton). Exceedingly rare, only two copies have been auctioned in the past 25 years. Near Fine.

        1564 Simplicus of Cilicia on ARISTOTLE Greek Pagan Philosophy Metaphysics Folio

      Venetus, Apud Hieronymum Scotum, 1564. - 1564 Simplicus of Cilicia on ARISTOTLE Greek Pagan Philosophy Metaphysics Folio Last Great Neoplatonist Philosopher of Pagan Antiquity Famous commentary on the works of Aristotle by Simplicus. Simplicius of Cilicia (c. 490 – c. 560) was a disciple of Ammonius Hermiae and Damascius, and was one of the last of the Neoplatonists. He was among the pagan philosophers persecuted by Justinian in the early 6th century, and was forced for a time to seek refuge in the Persian court, before being allowed back into the empire. He wrote extensively on the works of Aristotle. Although his writings are all commentaries on Aristotle and other authors, rather than original compositions, his intelligent and prodigious learning makes him the last great philosopher of pagan antiquity. Aristotle (384–322 BC) was a Greek philosopher and scientist. We do not find any other examples of this book for sale elsewhere; however, we do find a 1569 printing for sale for $1,500!

        Rime di M. Giacomo Marmitta parmeggiano

      appresso di Seth Viotto, Parma 1564 - 2 parti in 1 volume in-4 (195x140 mm.), pp. (8), 198, (10). Impresa tipografica al frontespizio in legno (unicorno entro bordura a grottesche), iniziali istoriate e testatine xilografiche nel testo. Digramma stilizzato a penna al frontespizio (F.P.). Bell'esemplare in elegante legatura settecentesca in piena pelle marmorizzata con titoli dorati su tassello merlettato in oro e motivi floreali impressi sempre in oro al dorso nervato. Tagli decorati a spruzzo. Prima ed unica edizione, pubblicata postuma per le cure del figlio adottivo dell'autore. Vi si trova una dedica dello stampatore al Duca di Parma e Piacenza, seguita da quella del curatore, il già citato Ludovico figliolo di Giacomo, al cardinale Montepulciano, quindi due sonetti endecasillabi di genere encomiastico fatti da Andrea Casalio. Seguono il rimario e le stanze, di derivazione marcatamente petrarchesca, con argomenti che migrano gradualmente dalla tematica amorosa, prevalente nella prima parte, a quella religiosa, che si afferma nella parte seconda e ultima. Chiudono sonetti di diversi autori, fra i quali il Dolce e il Della Casa, indirizzati al Marmitta, con le risposte in verso di quest'ultimo. Apostolo Zeno, nelle sue note al Fontanini, espresse il parere secondo il quale il sonetto spirituale che va sotto il nome d'Incerto e che si legge a pagina 195, fosse opera di San Filippo Neri.

        De Humano Foetu Libellus

      1564. Woodcut printer's device on title. 4 p.l. (last leaf a blank), 79 pp. Small 8vo, somewhat later vellum over boards. Bologna: J. Rubrius, 1564.First edition of an extremely rare book in which Aranzi (1530-89), professor of anatomy at Bologna, describes his discovery of "the ductus venosus of the fetus that runs to the umbilical cord."-Castiglioni, A History of Medicine, p. 428. He was the first to state the maternal and foetal circulations were separate, and found the highly oxygenated blood supply was connected from the placenta through the ductus venosus to the foetal circulation."His De Humano Foetu was an important book…he was the first to maintain that the maternal and foetal circulations are separate, but he naturally did not, and could not, speak of circulations, since he lived before Harvey. Nor could he have proved his point satisfactorily with the means then at his command, and, as we shall see, it was to take another century before the proof was given. Apart from this valuable contribution to embryology, Arantius gave some admirable anatomical descriptions of the foetal membranes."-Garrison, A History of Embryology, p. 105.Aranzi studied medicine under his famous uncle, Bartolomeo Maggi (1477-1552), lecturer in surgery at the University of Bologna. He was also one of the best students of Vesalius (who is mentioned on page 46). Aranzi was, along with Aldrovandi and Fabricius ab Aquapendente, one of the three greatest Italian embryologists of the period. "The excellent scientific and practical preparation Aranzio had received from his uncle immediately brought him fame. He discovered the pedes hippocamp; the cerebellum cistern; and the fourth ventricle, the arterial duct between the aorta and the pulmonary duct…"In 1564 Aranzio published De humano foetu opusculum, and fifteen years later his Observationes anatomicae appeared. In these he presented the new direction of anatomy, based not merely on simple description of the organs of the body but also on experimental investigations of their functions."-D.S.B., I, p. 204.Very good copy preserved in a morocco box. 13 leaves a little wormed in lower outer margin. Some contemporary annotations. This is a rare book; for example, there was no copy in the Norman collection.❧ Dobson, Anatomical Eponyms, p. 14. Garrison-Morton 464-"Aranzi believed the maternal and foetal circulations to be separate. He described the ductus arteriosus and ductus venosus of the foetus, and the corpora Arantii in the heart valves. Incidentally, he was the first to record a pelvic deformity.".

        Pomona und Vertumnus.

      - Dekorativer Kupferstich von Jan Saenredam nach Abraham Bloemaert mit dem Mythos von Pomona und Vertumnus. Sehr dekorativer, neukolorierter Kupferstich von Jan Saenredam nach einer Vorlage von Abraham Bloemaert mit dem bei Ovid geschilderten Mythos von Pomona und Vertumnus (Metamorphosen, XIV, 623-697). Vertumnus, der Gott der Jahreszeiten und des Wandels, verliebte sich in Pomona, die römische Göttin der Baumfrüchte. Pomona interessierte sich jedoch nur für die Pflege ihres Gartens und schenkte ihren zahlreichen Verehrern kein Gehör. Vertumnus griff daher zu einer List, um die Göttin für sich zu gewinnen. Er verwandelte sich in ein altes Weib, um Zugang in ihren Garten zu erhalten. Hier erzählt die Alte Pomona ein Gleichnis, dass sie für sie erweichen soll: Wie die Ulme, unter der die beiden sitzen, nur Aufmerksamkeit für die Reben, die sich an ihr emporranken, erhalte - genauso würden die Reben ohne die Ulme ohne Schutz und Halt sein. Zum Bedauern der Alten nehme sich Pomona jedoch kein Vorbild an den von ihr gehegten Pflanzen, bleibe lieber alleine und verschmähe ihre Bewerber. Schließlich beginnt die Alte ein Loblied auf den Gott Vertumnus zu singen, erwähnt seine edle Seele, seine Treue und Schönheit. Als Vertumnus sich nun in seiner wahren Gestalt zeigt, gibt Pomona - ergriffen durch das Gleichnis und bezaubert durch den Anblick des Gottes – ihre lange Gegenwehr schließlich auf. Der vorliegende Stich zeigt in der zentralen Szene das Gespräch von Pomona und Vertumnus in Gestalt einer alten Frau unter der besagten weinumrankten Ulme. Typischerweise hat Pomona eine Hippe (Rebmesser) in der Hand und vor sich einen üppig gefüllten Korb mit den Früchten ihres Gartens stehen. Diese Figurengruppe findet sich auch auf der Vorlage des niederländischen Malers Abraham Bloemaert (1564 -1651). Es handelt sich hierbei um ein kleines Ölbild auf Kupfer (um 1605, Indianapolis Museum of Art), das die zentrale Figurengruppe von Pomona und Vertmunus spiegelverkehrt zeigt. Die Szene wurde für den Stich von Jan Saenredam (1565 -1607) um zwei Szenen erweitert. Links im Hintergrund ist Vertumnus in Gestalt der alten Frau beim Betreten des Gartens, rechts im Hintergrund das junge Liebespaar am Ende der Geschichte zu sehen. Vertumnus erntet hier sozusagen die Früchte seiner List. Der niederländische Kupferstecher Jan Saenredam war ab 1589 im Kreis um die in Haarlem tätigen Kupferstecher Hendrick Goltzius und Jacques de Gheyn II. tätig, bevor er 1595 wieder in seine Geburtsstadt Assendelft zurückkehrte. Goltzius und de Gheyn sind wichtige Vertreter des niederländischen Manierismus, dessen Stilformen mit den überlängten Gliedmaßen der Figuren und den preziösen Körper- und Handhaltungen auch die Arbeit Saenredams beeinflussten. Die in einer schönen Kursive gedruckte, lateinische Bildunterschrift stammt von Theodorus Schrevelius (1572-1649), einem in Haarlem und Leiden tätigen Humanisten und Dichter.
