Giovanni Battista Nazari
Brescia: Francesco Marchetti al Segno dell' Ancora, 1564. This work mostly speaks of the alchemical transformation of metals but also discusses humans. It is an extended allegory in the form of several dreams. The title loosely translates into English as 'Metallic and Human Metamorphosis: Which Contains four Dreams, The first of them and the sophisticated metal mutation, the second of the real transformation or the alchemy of metals; the third of physical transformation of human bodies and the fourth of the spiritual transformation in Christ: new in light to useful, and commodious of every curious ingenuity.' Through the dreams the author meets several symbolic figures who lead him to realise the errors, deceptions and falsehoods of alchemy. The first edition of this work. Later editions of this work were titled Della Tramutatione Metallica Sogni Tre.. and issued in 1572 and 1599. In the original Italian. With only one of the original two full page woodcuts to this work. In addition to this full page woodcut there is a printer's colophon to the verso of title page and an illuminated letter to the first leaf of text. Collated, lacking leaves G3 and G4 and therefore numbered pages 27 and 28. To the verso of leaf G4 is a full page illustration which is therefore missing from the work as above. Very little is known about Nazari, but he was a sixteenth century alchemist. He has been mentioned through history by other fellow alchemists. An extremely early and fascinating work on alchemy. This very scarce work is likely to have been extremely influential in the forthcoming influx … [Click Below for Full Description]

Uncommon Plantin Press. The Plantin Press at Antwerp was one of the focal centers of the fine printed book in the 16th century. Psalmorum bound with Proverbia, Ecclesiastes, et Cantica Canticorum Psalms, With Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) Together 2 volumes of books from the Old Testament bound in 1 each with title page. 90, (4), 124 leaves. Small 16mo., Contemporary gilt ruled calf with initials RS gilt on covers. All edges gilt. Christophe Plantin (ca 1520 - 1589) of Touraine was trained as a bookbinder. He fled from Paris where at least one printer had recently been burned at the stake for heresy, and went to Antwerp. There he bound books, became a citizen, and by 1555 began to print books, at first for distribution by other publishers. The city was already an established center of printing woodcuts, engravings and books. Plantin took on an assistant, Jan Moretus (Moerentorf), who read Latin and Greek and could write correspondence in several modern languages. He became Plantin's business manager, son-in-law and eventually his successor in the Plantin printing press. For over two hundred years the Plantin press had a monopoly, granted by the papacy, for the printing of liturgical formularies, including in Spain. In 1562, suspected of heresy, Plantin fled to France for two years. At an auction of his press, friends bought up his equipment on his behalf. After 1564, when Plantin set up again in a new shop at the sign of De Gulden Passer ("The Golden Compasses"), the printers mark of the House of Plantin. It often appeared in a vignette on the t … [Click Below for Full Description]

SAMBUCUS, Johannes (1531-1584).
Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 1564. A VERY EARLY PICTURE OF A TENNIS MATCH. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ORIGINAL EMBLEM BOOK PUBLISHED BY PLANTIN 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'), th … [Click Below for Full Description]

C'est le premier travail d'importance d'Ambroise Paré et son ouvrage de chirurgie le plus complet avant la parution des ses oeuvres onze ans plus tard. Il est illustré par 158 bois gravés, dont de nombreux instruments. Il existe deux tirages, dans l'un il y a un portrait au verso du titre, dans l'autre il est blanc ce qui est le cas ici, et cela pourrait être une marque de premier tirage.

"Paré embarks here on his first work of magnitude." (Doe). "Paré's first general treatise on surgery, and the most comprehensive of his treatises before his collected works (1575). Dix livres included Paré's first description of the use of the ligature in amputations, one of his greatest contributions. Paré began the work with an exposition of his method of treating gunshot wounds, including descriptions and illustrations of the instruments he used. In his second chapter he discussed the treatment of arrow wounds, reminding us that arrows were still a major weapon of war in the 16th century.

[36], 477 pp. Russia leather over pasteboards, diced, with five raised bands on spine and title and date gilt-lettered in second and sixth compartments, marbled endpapers (joints slightly cracked, light rubbing to corners and edges). Venice, Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari, First edition of the final four volumes of Italian scholar, political operator and historian Francesco Guicciardini?s Dell?Historia d?Italia. Left unfinished by the author, these four volumes were excluded from the first edition of the history (Florence, 1561) but later edited by his nephew, Angelo, who had also edited the first sixteen volumes. Angelo Giucciardini chose a Venetian printer over the Florentine house that had published the first, longer instalment of the history. In the prefatory dedication to Cosimo de' Medici, Angelo Giucciardini writes that the first instalment of the history had generated 'molto desiderio di vedere questi quattro ultimi' and claims that the quality and scale of these final volumes renders them even better than the first. All of Giucciardini's works were published after his death; the Historia and one other work within only a few years, and the remainder only in the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1568, Giolito published the twenty volumes of the Historia together in their entirety. Provenance: Library label on front paste-down of the Dukes of Marlborough.

1564. Nice full calf binding with gilted spine. Ends of spine chipped and corners slighltly bumped but overall in Good + to Very Good (VG in professional bookseller's assessment) condition. Marbled boards in front and back. I purchased from Weirus books years ago and this copy still listed on his website under his 'sold' category. Title page has a subtle professional repair at bottom.

Giovanni Battista Nazari
Brescia: Francesco Marchetti al Segno dell' Ancora, 1564. This work mostly speaks of the alchemical transformation of metals but also discusses humans. It is an extended allegory in the form of several dreams. The title loosely translates into English as 'Metallic and Human Metamorphosis: Which Contains four Dreams, The first of them and the sophisticated metal mutation, the second of the real transformation or the alchemy of metals; the third of physical transformation of human bodies and the fourth of the spiritual transformation in Christ: new in light to useful, and commodious of every curious ingenuity.' Through the dreams the author meets several symbolic figures who lead him to realise the errors, deceptions and falsehoods of alchemy. The first edition of this work. Later editions of this work were titled Della Tramutatione Metallica Sogni Tre.. and issued in 1572 and 1599. In the original Italian. With only one of the original two full page woodcuts to this work. In addition to this full page woodcut there is a printer's colophon to the verso of title page and an illuminated letter to the first leaf of text. Collated, lacking leaves G3 and G4 and therefore numbered pages 27 and 28. To the verso of leaf G4 is a full page illustration which is therefore missing from the work as above. Very little is known about Nazari, but he was a sixteenth century alchemist. He has been mentioned through history by other fellow alchemists. An extremely early and fascinating work on alchemy.

Uncommon Plantin Press. The Plantin Press at Antwerp was one of the focal centers of the fine printed book in the 16th century. Psalmorum bound with Proverbia, Ecclesiastes, et Cantica Canticorum Psalms, With Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) Together 2 volumes of books from the Old Testament bound in 1 each with title page. 90, (4), 124 leaves. Small 16mo., Contemporary gilt ruled calf with initials RS gilt on covers. All edges gilt. Christophe Plantin (ca 1520 - 1589) of Touraine was trained as a bookbinder. He fled from Paris where at least one printer had recently been burned at the stake for heresy, and went to Antwerp. There he bound books, became a citizen, and by 1555 began to print books, at first for distribution by other publishers. The city was already an established center of printing woodcuts, engravings and books. Plantin took on an assistant, Jan Moretus (Moerentorf), who read Latin and Greek and could write correspondence in several modern languages. He became Plantin's business manager, son-in-law and eventually his successor in the Plantin printing press. For over two hundred years the Plantin press had a monopoly, granted by the papacy, for the printing of liturgical formularies, including in Spain. In 1562, suspected of heresy, Plantin fled to France for two years. At an auction of his press, friends bought up his equipment on his behalf. After 1564, when Plantin set up again in a new shop at the sign of De Gulden Passer ("The Golden Compasses"), the printers mark of the House of Plantin.

FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE!!!!As Lutherans and other Protestants prepare to celebrate the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation in 2017 this would be an excellent book to add to your library. The University of Wittenberg was founded in 1502 by Frederick the Wise, Elector of Saxony. Under the influence of Philipp Melanchthon, building on the works of Martin Luther, the university became a center of the Protestant Reformation, even incorporating at one time, Luther's house in Wittenberg, the Lutherhaus, as part of the campus. On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther nailed a copy of the 95 Theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church and that began the foundation of the Protestant Reformation. Philipp Melanchthon(1497-1560) was a German reformer, collaborator with Martin Luther, the first systematic theologian of the Protestant Reformation, intellectual leader of the Lutheran Reformation, and an influential designer of the educational systems. He stands next to Luther and Calvin as a reformer, theologian, and molder of Protestantism. Along with Luther, he is the primary founder of Lutheranism. This book is in VERY GOOD condition with obvious wear to the cover(see pictures). Binding is tight and secure vellum binding.

Segnatura: [A]-H4. Marca tipografica al titolo ed in fine. Due opere in un volume in 4to (mm. 192x134). Legatura dell'Ottocento in mezza pelle con fregi in oro al dorso e tagli rossi. Minime fioriture sparse, ma ottima copia conservata in astuccio di tela. I) RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE dedicata a Francesco Buonaventura da Jacopo Giunti ed edita, a distanza di pochi giorni dall'evento, per le cure di quest'ultimo, che ne è probabilmente anche il compilatore. La descrizione delle esequie dell'artista, di cui si servì Vasari per la sua più ampia relazione, è accompagnata da una serie di rime in volgare e in latino di vari autori, tra i quali spiccano i nomi di Benedetto Varchi, Agnolo Bronzino, Laura Battiferri, Paolo del Rosso e Bartolomeo Panciatichi. Le celebrazioni funerarie di Michelangelo si tennero a Firenze solo in luglio, nonostante l'artista fosse morto il 18 febbraio. Esistono esemplari dell'opera recanti sul titolo la data 28 giugno, che probabilmente era quella fissata inizialmente per l'evento. Il pamphlet descrive nella prima parte il trasporto della salma da Roma a Firenze e i lunghi e dibattuti preparativi per il funerale che videro inizialmente coinvolto anche Benvenuto Cellini.

The title loosely translates into English as 'Metallic and Human Metamorphosis: Which Contains four Dreams, The first of them and the sophisticated metal mutation, the second of the real transformation or the alchemy of metals; the third of physical transformation of human bodies and the fourth of the spiritual transformation in Christ: new in light to useful, and commodious of every curious ingenuity.' Through the dreams the author meets several symbolic figures who lead him to realise the errors, deceptions and falsehoods of alchemy. The first edition of this work. Later editions of this work were titled Della Tramutatione Metallica Sogni Tre.. and issued in 1572 and 1599. In the original Italian. With only one of the original two full page woodcuts to this work. In addition to this full page woodcut there is a printer's colophon to the verso of title page and an illuminated letter to the first leaf of text. Collated, lacking leaves G3 and G4 and therefore numbered pages 27 and 28. To the verso of leaf G4 is a full page illustration which is therefore missing from the work as above. Very little is known about Nazari, but he was a sixteenth century alchemist. He has been mentioned through history by other fellow alchemists. An extremely early and fascinating work on alchemy. This very scarce work is likely to have been extremely influential in the forthcoming influx of works in the field of alchemical allegories at th … [Click Below for Full Description]

De Ratione Decendi 1564 Printed in Wittemberg (100, 120 leafs) Significance of this work on the development of Harvard's current curriculum (from a Harvard History/Henry Dunster Scholar): "Sturm had a great deal of influence on the views of Petrus Ramus, who in turn had a great impact on Dunster in the development of his teaching methodology and in setting up Harvard's curriculum. So, in terms of its historical value in helping shape early Harvard, this book might have had some direct impact. I don't that for sure, of course, but Dunster would have held Sturm in very high regard." After Dunster's passing it somehow came to Thomas Foxcroft, a Puritan minister. Small.

1564. Nice full calf binding with gilted spine. Ends of spine chipped and corners slighltly bumped but overall in Good + (my assessment) to Very Good) (professional bookseller's assessment) condition. Marbled boards in front and back. I purchased from Weirus books years ago and this copy still listed on his website under his 'sold' category. Title page has a subtle professional repair at bottom. The text in itself is complete but the index at the end lacks letters i to z. Bottom right corners of the first ten leaves damaged without loss of text. "Second edition as rare as the first that was published in 1563. Probably the rarest manual of demonology ever published. Unlike most works on witchcraft that were written by inquisitors or witch hunters, here is a book written by a genuine occultist and defender of witches, Johannes Wierus, the very disciple of Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa, the greatest magician of the Renaissance. With a deep insight in the real nature of the Devil, having himself managed to fathom the hellish hierarchy, Wierus condemned the superstitions contained in the Malleus Maleficarum, establishing a clear boundary between true Sorcery and the mere illusions of mentally ill women. As the first book ever to defend witches it was almost immediately sentenced to fire by the inquisition, only a few copies remain." (Weirus occult books) ------------------------------------- The more complete and definitive edition, revised and expanded by the author. ------------------------------------- "De praestigiis daemonum, translated as On the Tricks of Demons, is a book th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Uncommon Plantin Press. The Plantin Press at Antwerp was one of the focal centers of the fine printed book in the 16th century. Psalmorum bound with Proverbia, Ecclesiastes, et Cantica Canticorum Psalms, With Proverbs, Ecclesiastes and Song of Songs (Song of Solomon) Together 2 volumes of books from the Old Testament bound in 1 each with title page. 90, (4), 124 leaves. Small 16mo., Contemporary gilt ruled calf with initials RS gilt on covers. All edges gilt. Christophe Plantin (ca 1520 - 1589) of Touraine was trained as a bookbinder. He fled from Paris where at least one printer had recently been burned at the stake for heresy, and went to Antwerp. There he bound books, became a citizen, and by 1555 began to print books, at first for distribution by other publishers. The city was already an established center of printing woodcuts, engravings and books. Plantin took on an assistant, Jan Moretus (Moerentorf), who read Latin and Greek and could write correspondence in several modern languages. He became Plantin's business manager, son-in-law and eventually his successor in the Plantin printing press. For over two hundred years the Plantin press had a monopoly, granted by the papacy, for the printing of liturgical formularies, including in Spain. In 1562, suspected of heresy, Plantin fled to France for two years. At an auction of his press, friends bought up his equipment on his behalf. After 1564, when Plantin set up again in a new shop at the sign of De Gulden Passer ("The Golden Compasses"), the printers mark of the House of Plantin. It often appeared in a vignette on the t … [Click Below for Full Description]
