First title-page and first and last pages somewhat soiled; remainder wide-margined and clean, with exceptionally clear print. · Comments: Second edition. The first edition was printed between 1514 and 1517 and was one of the largest publishing efforts of its day. It digests 13,845 cases, including 39 brief original reports taken by Fitzherbert himself and extracts of several unprinted year books. This second edition was the last to be printed in a large format. Fitzherbert became a justice of the court of common pleas in 1522, an office he held until his death. As a judge, he was known for his legal conservatism, rejecting several recent precedents (including one won by himself as an advocate) as inconsistent with the ancient law. Whether his industry in compiling the abridgment made him conservative or whether his conservatism motivated his effort is an interesting question. · References: ODNB, J. H.

        LA HISTORIA DEL MONDO NUOVO...LA QUAL TRATTA DELL' ISOLE, & MARI NUOVAMENTE RITROVATI, & DELLE NUOVE CITTÀ DA LUI PROPRIO VEDUTE, PER ACQUA & PER TERRA IN QUATTORDECI ANNI

      Venetia: Francesco Rampazetto, 1565.. [4],175 leaves, including numerous in-text woodcuts. Woodcut titlepage portrait. Small octavo. 19th-century Italian vellum, gilt label. Early ownership signature on front free endpaper. Titlepage repaired along gutter, with a few other small repairs. Some minor worming, occasionally repaired. Trimmed close, touching the running headlines in a few instances. Very good. The first edition of this important early account of the New World, the first significant work based on firsthand observation by a non-Spaniard. Benzoni's history of the New World was one of the most widely disseminated texts of its day. Born in Milan, Benzoni spent fourteen years travelling through the Americas, beginning in 1541. He was familiar with the Antilles, Guatemala, and the west coast of South America, and gives a description of these regions, as well as a history from the arrival of Columbus to the conquest of Peru. Engaged in commerce, Benzoni quickly grew to hate the Spanish and their administration, and he treats them unfavorably in his text. He denounces the Spanish for their treatment of the Indians, and for their importation of slaves to America. The numerous woodcuts in the text depict Indians, their dwellings and activities, and a good portion of the text describes Indian life before it became too corrupted by European contact. Benzoni's work is also notable for containing an early account of the use of tobacco, and a few of the woodcuts show cocoa and banana trees, and other American plants and trees. "[The work] contains interesting details about the countries he visited, but abounds in errors and often in intentional misstatements. What Benzoni states about the Antilles is a clumsy rehash of Las Casas. His reports on the conquests of Mexico and Peru bristle with errors" - CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA. Despite his inaccuracies, the wide distribution of his book made Benzoni the single most influential figure in describing the New World to Europe in the mid- 16th century. His work went through many printings, though Arents notes that "it appears never to have been permitted to circulate in Spain." Its final, and perhaps most influential, version was as parts IV-VI of De Bry's GRAND VOYAGES, where its anti- Spanish slant helped to advance the "Black Legend" of Spanish depravity in the New World.

        La Georgica di Virgilio

      A very nice and rare book in excellent condition from the famous presses of Giovanni Gryphio. The translation of Virgil's works.Bernardo Daniello was a native of Luca and died in Padua in 1565. This work was published during his life and is a translation of Virgil?s four works. He was known as a scholar, made translation from the commentaries on classical works, and wrote on Dante. His Poetica was his most famous work. Daniello?s Poetica (1536) is without doubt the first work of its sort since antiquity, and the few passages relative to the drama are of great historical importance. Daniello?s ideas are of course derived from the ancients, but are clearly stated, and must have exercised a profound influence over his contemporaries and successors. Saintsbury says: The first author of one  [a theory of poetry] is generally taken to be Daniello...it has such good claims to be among the very earliest vernacular disputations of a general character on poetry in Italy?. There is a mixture of Aristotle and Horace in the work. Daniello brings his skill of poetry to the translations of Virgil?s works from the Latin to the Italian. A monumental work, first published by Giovanni (Johann) Gryphio in 1545. This is a colophoned and engraved work that has been rebacked and rebound and is in fresh condition with a couple of minor ink spots. No worms and with the occasional paper tear but not affecting the text. Gryphio was one of the premier printers in Venice and used only the finest rag paper. This book in its present condition will last another 500 years.  Collation as follows with corresponding notes to the colophons and images. [blank], a4-b4; Primo-A4-H4; Secunda-I4, K4-P4; Terzo-P4 verso, Q4-T4; V4, X4; Quarto- X4 verso, Y4-Z4; AA4-CC4, [blank]. 1549. Type set at last page. Four etchings three similar and one different. Colophons at each book as well.Publius Vergilius Maro (October 15, 70 BCE ? September 21, 19 BCE), later called Vergilius, and known in English as Virgil or Vergil, was a classical Roman poet. He was the author of epics in three modes: the Bucolics (or Eclogues), the Georgics and the substantially completed Aeneid, the last being an epic poem in the heroic mode, which comprised twelve books (as opposed to 24 in each of the epic poems by Homer) and became the Roman Empire's national epic. Legend has it that Virgil was born in the village of Andes, near Mantua in Cisalpine Gaul (Gaul south of the Alps; present-day northern Italy). Some scholars have claimed Celtic ancestry based upon the location of his birth and upon a perceived "Celtic" strain in his verse. Other scholars suggest Etruscan or Umbrian descent by examining the linguistic or ethnic markers of the region. Analysis of his name has led to beliefs that he descended from earlier Roman colonists. Modern speculation ultimately is not supported by narrative evidence either from his own writings or his later biographers. Etymological fancy has noted that his cognomen MARO shares its letters anagrammatically with the twin themes of his epic: AMOR (love) and ROMA (Rome).Title:     La Georgica di Virgilio.Uniform Title:     Georgica.

L?opera infatti non si basa tanto sullo studio di testi precedenti, quanto su un esame diretto ed attento degli antichi monumenti. Questo si nota anche nella migliore qualità delle illustrazioni, più fedeli rispetto a quelle contenute in altre guide dell'epoca. Cicognara 3743. Schudt 711. Olschki, Choix, 16995. Rossetti G-390. Rare first edition of one of the most important Rome guides of the 16th century. With a folding plan and 38 text woodcuts. A few mild age stains but a good copy recently bound in old vellum.

        Tre navi da guerra nella tempesta.

      Bulino, circa 1565, monogrammata in lastra in basso a sinistra. Dalla serie Navi da Guerra. Esemplare nel raro primo stato di due, recante l?indirizzo di Hieronimus Cock in alto a destra. Magnifica prova, particolarmente nitida e contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana del ?P gotico? (simile a Briquet 8835 e databile alla seconda metà del XVI secolo), con sottilissimi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il monogramma presente in lastra al fianco del nome di Brueghel si riferisce a Frans Huys (Anversa circa 1522 ? 1570), autore dell?incisione. Questi lavorava nella bottega del Brueghel dove traduceva in incisione il disegno preparatorio realizzato dal suo maestro. Secondo il Bastelaer la serie delle Navi da Guerra consta di undici stampe, sebbene alcuni studiosi in passato ne raccontino l?esistenza di dodici. Engraving, circa 1565, signed on the plate at the lower left. A superb impression of the first state of two with Hieronimus Cock address at the upper right, printed with tone and showing a good clarity of details, on contemporary laid paper with ?Gothic P? watermark (close to Briquet 8835), with thin margins, in very good condition.The monogram near Brueghel?s name refers to Frans Huys (Antwerp circa 1502 ? 1570), author of the engraving. He was hired by Brueghel and made engravings, using as a starting point his master's drawings. According to Bastelaer this series is made up of eleven prints, although other scholars speak of twelve.

        De Rerum Fossilivm, Lapidvm et Gemmarvm maximè, figuris & similitudinibus Liber: non solùm Medicis, sed omnibus rerum Naturae ac Philologiae studiosis, vtilis & iucundus futurus.

      Zurich, (I. Gesnerus), 1565. 8vo (160 x 100mm). Leaves (7), 169, with printer's device on first and last leaf and numerous (some 180) woodcut illustrations. Early 20th century half vellum, marbled sides, lettering on spine. Gessner's main contribution on fossils and gems. It forms the only part written by Gessner of his 'De omni rerum fossilium genere...' Zurich 1565. 'A compendium of works by several authors on fossils, gems and metals, on most of which Gessner wrote commentaries. His own contribution (the present work) is a treatise on fossils and gemstones. Each part (except the first one) has its own title page...' (Wellisch, A 63). The 'De omni rerum fossilium' consists of eight parts of which the last part written by Gessner is his most important contibution to fossils and mineralogy. Wellisch writes about it as follows: 'Gessner's main contribution to his work on fossils and gems, illustrated by many woodcuts after his own drawings and water colours (many of which are still preserved in the university library at Basel). These are the first printed illustrations of fossils. The work contains also descriptions of technical applications; noteworthy among these is the earliest illustration of lead pencil (leaves 104 and 105). In his introduction, Gessner indicates that he considers this only as an outline for a much larger and comprehensive work on fossils which he hoped to compile and publish after the completion of his botanical encyclopedia on which he was then working. Neither of these planned works materialized because Gessner died shortly after the publication of this work'. Some slight browning, however a very good copy. A copy of Gessners 'De omni rerum fossilium' recently fetched $ 87,000 at auction in New York. Wellisch, Conrad Gessner, a bio-bibliography, A 63; Hoover 347; Sinkankas 2366 (showing the titlepage of the present work on page 382).

XVI, studiò dapprima diritto e si dedicò poi alla medicina. Seguace della scuola classicistica, che si richiamava cioè alle dottrine di Ippocrate e Galeno, fu insegnante nello Studio di Napoli, dove formò una combattiva schiera di discepoli e sostenne vivaci polemiche soprattutto contro i paracelsiani. A contatto con i migliori ingegni napoletani del suo tempo, dal Tansillo ai Della Porta, l?A. raggiunse tale fama da essere ancora ricordato da T. Boccalini in un elenco di medici famosi di tutti i tempi accanto a Cornelio Celso, Ippocrate, Galeno, Fracastoro. Morì dopo il 1562, forse nel 1566 e fu sepolto a Napoli nella chiesa di S.ta Maria delle Grazie, nella cappella degli Altomare". Così ?Diz. Biograf. degli Italiani?, II, p. 568.

First published in 1514 (or 1516), it was the first serious attempt to arrange the common law in a systematic manner and it was a model for such writers as Brooke and Rolle. According to Boersma, Fitzherbert accomplished "nothing less than to abridge all notes of significant cases at common law."

        De iis quae vehuntur in Aqua libri duo; Liber de Centro Gravitates Solidorum.Bologna: Benacius, 1565.

      Two works in one volume; The first critical printing of Archimedes' On Floating Bodies, edited by Commandino, bound with the first edition of Commandino's important treatise On the Center of Gravity of Solid Bodies. <br/><br/> "Commandino's only other original work, dealing with the center of gravity of solid bodies, was published in 1565 at Bologna, ... Commandino's interest in this topic was aroused by Archimedes' Floating Bodies, of which he had no Greek text, unlike the five other Archimedean works he had previously translated. Since his time a large part of the Greek text of Floating Bodies has been recovered, but he had only a printed Latin translation (Venice, 1543, 1565), which he commented on and corrected (Bologna, 1565). In particular the proof of proposition 2 in book II was incomplete, and Commandino filled it out. One step required knowing the location of the center of gravity of any segment of a parabolic conoid. No ancient treatment of such a problem was then known, and Commandino's was the first modern attempt to fill the existing gap." (DSB, III:364). <br/><br/> In 1543 Tartaglia published "the Moerbeke translations of [Archimdes'] On the Equilibrium of Planes and Book I of On Floating Bodies (leaving the erroneous impression that he had made these translations from a Greek manuscript, which he had not since he merely repeated the texts of the Madrid manuscript with virtually all their errors). Incidentally, Curtius Trioianus published from the legacy of Tartaglia both books of On Floating Bodies in Moerbeke's translation (Venice, 1565). The key event, however, in the further spread of Archimedes was the aforementioned editio princeps of the Greek text with the accompanying Latin translation of James of Cremona at Basel in 1544 [Opera, quae quidem extant, omnia]. Since the Greek text rested ultimately on manuscript A, On Floating Bodies was not included. A further Latin translation of the Archimedean texts was published by the perceptive mathematician Federigo Commandino in Bologna in 1558, which the translator supplemented with a skillful mathematical emendation of Moerbeke's translation of On Floating Bodies (Bologna,1565) but without any knowledge of the long lost Greek text. (DSB, I:229). <br/><br/> Honeyman 131 & 739; Bibliotheca Mechanica 78; Stanitz 98 (the last three references are to Commandino's work only).. 4to: 202 x 141 mm. ff. [iv], 43; [iv], 47.

      Basel, Per Ambrosium et Aurelium, Frobenios Fratres, (1565, March, -on colophon). Folio. One cont. full vellum w. six raised bands on back. The boards have perhaps been covered with vellum a bit later. A few wormholes to upper and lower part of back. Inner hinges a bit weak, but binding sound. Some leaves brownspotted, but overall internally nice. Cont. inscription in ink on top of t-p. ("Domus Casa Professore Romana Socieded Jesu"). Woodcut printer's device on t-p. Woodcut initials, three of which are large (4,9 x 4,9 cm). 348, 279, 190, (2), (66, -Index) pp.. The rare first Langi/ Langum-edition and third Latin edition of the Opera of Justin. The first edition of the Opera in the original Greek appeared in 1551 (Paris, Stephanus). The first Latin edition appeared in 1554 (Basel Dupuys), the second (the Galen-edition) in 1555 (Basel, Hier. Froben & Nic. Episcopius) and the third (the Langi-edition) in 1565. This is probably the best of the Latin editions, and the Latin version of the Opera by Jo. Langi was also used for the standard Greek-Latin parallel editions of 1593 and 1615. Justin the Martyr (100 - 165 AD) was a Christian philosopher, who was brought up a pagan. He is primarily known for his dailogues and his apologies, all of which are present here. The apologies constitute the earliest Christian ones of some length. He died a martyr in Rome after having been condemned a Christian by Q. Junius Rusticus. As a philosopher he dealt with Stocism, Aristotelianism and Pythagoreanism before he meant to have found the truth in Platonism. Philosophically he is most interesting in his attempt to unite Christianity with philosophy (i.e. Platonism), as Boethius did a few centuries later, and Justin actually anticipates the philosophy of history of Origin (ca. 185 - ca. 255) and Eusebius (ca. 260 - 340). He is very interesting when viewed as a thinker, who represents the union of philosophy and thought with the new religious attraction in the Eastern part of the Empire under Antonius Pius, i.e. Christianity.Graesse III:515, Adams J:497, not in Brunet

Apart from a small faint brownspot on verso of the map and a dampstain to right margins on leaves 234-49, internally a very clean copy with the woodcuts in fine impressions. Printed on good paper.. First Italian edition (and in full), being the second folio-edition as well as the second edition in the vernacular, of Magnus' great work "Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus", which constitutes one of the most important sources on the Northern customs and daily life of the time. The present first Italian edition ispublished 10 years after the first edition, which is in Latin, Rome 1555. A French translation appeared, in 8vo, in 1560-61). In reality, this famous work is a large commentary and notes to Olaus Magnus' own map, the famous "Carta Marina", which he published in Venice in 1539, of which only two copies are known. The Carta Marina ("Map of the Sea" or "Sea Map"), is the earliest map of the Nordic countries that gives details and place names. Only two earlier maps of Scandinavia are known, those of Jacob Ziegler and Claudius Clavus. The "Carta Marina" is reproduced here in smaller size.The woodcut illustrations and views - here printed with the same woodblocks as the Rome edition of 1555 - are of the greatest importance to the cultural history of the Nordic countries, as they illustrate the religions, folklore, occupations, as well as the geographies, fauna etc. of the Scandinavian people. They have since been reproduced a number of times. The artist is not known, but they are probably carved after sketches by Olaus Magnus himself. The map is here reproduced for the first time in copper-engraving, the earlier version was in woodcut.Swedish Books 1280-1967, No. 18. - Collijn "Sveriges Bibliografi intill År 1600", II: p. 221
