MAGNUS, Olaus.
Venice: Domenico Nicolini for the heirs of Luc'Antonia Giunta, 1565. Folio (310 x 215 mm). Contemporary vellum over Italian pasteboards, unlettered. Modern slipcase. Ownership inscription of Ranutii Aloysii Scarpacci on binder's blank. Vellum a little soiled, a few minor repairs, old ownership inscription washed from title, with consequent staining, short marginal tear reinforced on blank verso, similar marginal tear to engraved map, old paper repair to tear in A1 without loss, some marginal waterstaining, tiny marginal wormtrack to gutter of final 3 leaves, occasional scattered small stains, a good copy. Full-page engraved map of Scandinavia and neighbouring countries, 467 woodcut vignettes including repeats, printer's device on title-page and final verso, large woodcut initials. First edition in Italian. Magnus's great ethnographical and geographical survey of Scandinavia, Historia de Gentibus Septentrionalibus (History of the Northern Peoples), was first published in Latin in 1555. This Italian translation re-uses the woodcuts, with a few variations, illustrating all aspects of life: local customs, warfare, trades and occupations, animals and monsters, and daily activities. Hunting and fishing, swimming, skiing, archery, and horse racing feature among popular sports. The full-page map of Scandinavia, which was a woodcut in the Latin edition, is engraved here. Brunet III, 1302; Schwerdt II, 4; cf. Mortimer Italian 270. [Attributes: First Edition]

Vezzosi Aemilus
[500 manoscritto - Arezzo] (cm. 29.5 x 21) ottima piena pergamena antica ben restaurata, sguardie antiche non originali. Manoscritto cartaceo autografo composto di 120 carte numerate + 81 carte numerate (ultime 3 bianche) scritte al recto e al verso. Contiene epigrammi, odi, elegie ed epistole inedite, in gran parte ancora ignote e non riferite dal Massetani nel suo dizionario biografico degli Aretini. Come altri manoscritti anche il nostro inizia con "Aemilii Vezosii philosphi ac medici arretini". Dei componimenti ivi contenuti il Massetani riferisce solo di elegie latine in sei libri. Pertanto epigrammi, odi ed epistole sembrano a tutt'oggi sconosciute. Il nostro manoscritto del poco noto medico aretino (1565-1637) è così tutto da studiare in quanto aggiunge nuovi suoi scritti che costituiscono una scoperta. Per confronti circa la autobiografia vedi il codice 38 della biblioteca civica della città di Arezzo. Per notizie biografiche vedi: Massetani "Dizionario biografico degli Arettini" n°3688. Purtroppo è in cattivo stato di conservazione, a causa dell'inchiostro perforante alcune carte risukltano illeggibili, molte sono corrose al centro con grave perdita di circa la metà del testo. Pertanto è stato completamente restaurato nel 2001 dal laboratorio di restauro di Foligno, rinforzato con veline foglio a foglio onde impedire ulteriori perdite. Nonostante questo, resta un documento indiscutibilmente prezioso e unico che da nuova luce alla figura del medico aretino. Provenienza: Archivio privato di importante famiglia patrizia di Arezzo. 1979. [f84] manoscritto

GAMUCCI, Bernardo (sec. XVI). -
Venezia, Varisco, 1565.In-4. Rilegato recentemente in pergamena antica. Marca tipografica sul frontespizio e in fine, 6 graziosi capilettera istoriati, una pianta ripiegata di Roma e 38 silografie n.t che mostrano alcuni dei più celebri monumenti dell'antica Roma. (8), 201 (mal num. 200), (3, ultime 2 bianche) pp.; esemplare molto buono; poche ed insignificanti ingialliture. Assai rara prima edizione di una delle più importanti guide di Roma della seconda metà del '500 (secondo Schudt, gli unici antiquari del periodo che abbiano fornito notizie autonome sono Fulvio e Gamucci). 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.

Pieter BRUEGHEL "Il Vecchio" (Brueghel 1525 ca. - Brussel 1569)
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.

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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARCHIMEDES; COMMANDINO, Frederico.
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).

Benzoni, Girolamo:
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 ab … [Click Below for Full Description]
