      1566. De' disegni delle più illustri città e fortezze del mondo.. Giulio Ballino era un avvocato veneziano che frequentava la casa dei Manunzio già verso il 1530, dedicandosi in gioventù allo studio dei classici. Il libro De' disegni delle più illustri città, et fortezze del mondo.. stampato a Venezia da Bolognino Zaltieri nel 1569 è costituito da cinquanta vedute ed una carta geografica. L'opera rappresenta il primo tentativo, nell'ambito dell'editoria italiana, della realizzazione di un testo/atlante delle principali fortezze e città del mondo. A differenza dei suoi predecessori, dei quali utilizza spesso i rami e le iconografie, egli concepisce un'opera unitaria corredata di testi e di indice, della quale, per la prima volta, si è ha conoscenza dell'esatto numero di tavole che la compongono. Sicuramente ispirata all'opera del Du Pinet Plantz, Pourtraitz et descriptions de plusieurs ville set forteresses.., la raccolta del Ballino è molto probabilmente solo una parte del progetto iniziale, molto più ampio. Egli probabilmente intendeva pubblicare un'edizione in latino, sperando di lanciare la sua opera a livello europeo, ma si arrese davanti alla pubblicazione del primo libro del Civitates Orbis Terrarum di Georg Braun & Fransz Hogenberg, che in qualche modo bruciò parecchie delle iniziative editoriali sull'iconografia urbana. Le carte della raccolta sono datate tra il 1566 ed il 1568; secondo un recente studio di Albert Ganado (1993), trentadue di queste risultano essere ristampe dei rami di Paolo Forlani e di Domenico Zenoi, per la prima volta apparsi ne Il primo libro delle città, et fortezze principali del mondo del Forlani (1567); questo cospicuo gruppo di tavole è inserito nella raccolta con alcuni ritocchi nelle lastre, che vengono modificate. Altre furono per la prima volta pubblicate da Ferrando Bertelli nel Disegni di alcune più illustri città di fortezze del mondo con aggiunte di alcune isole principali, datato 1568. Il resto delle tavole sono di anonimi incisori di cui l'autore si servì per la sua opera, probabilmente anche per ritoccare le lastre di cui era già in possesso. Alcuni esemplari di questa rara opera recano il frontespizio allegorico inciso da Nicolò Nelli, famoso incisore e calcografo veneziano della seconda metà del '500; altri esemplari viceversa hanno un frontespizio non inciso. Entrambe le versioni sono edite dallo Zaltieri nel 1569. Difficile stabilire quale sia la prima stesura e quale quella successiva, la sola differenza è infatti notabile nel testo al verso delle carte, che può variare nella dimensione dei caratteri. Altra differenza che alcune carte sono numerate al verso, mentre le stesse, esaminate in altri esemplari, sono prive di questo numero di pagina. Per semplice deduzione logica possiamo affermare che gli esemplari privi del numero siano antecedenti, teoria tuttavia non del tutto surrogata dall'esame di più esemplari dell'opera. Le vedute che riportiamo nel catalogo provengono da un esemplare manchevole di alcune carte; per correttezza di informazione la paternità delle opere, sebbene provenienti dalla raccolta del Ballino, viene assegnata all'autore originale. Le incisioni sono tutte in rame, eseguite al bulino con ritocchi occasionali all'acquaforte; i margini sono pieni e lo stato di conservazione ottimo. Il seguente gruppo di tavole è dedicato alle fortezze dell'impero austro - ungarico. La morte dell'Imperatore Ferdinando II nel 1564 portò ad un'aspra guerra di successione che scatenò epiche battaglie tra le truppe del principe di Transilvania Giovanni Sigismondo e quelle imperiali. La guerra ebbe fine con l'intervento dell'esercito turco comandato dal Sultano Solimano II, e si concluse con la conquista di Vienna e la morte del sultano nel 1566 nell'assedio di Szigetvàr. Le spettacolari battaglie e gli altri eventi di guerra generarono un fiorente mercato calcografico per la pubblicazione e la divulgazione degli avvenimenti. Il primo ad occuparsene fu Domenico Zenoi, successivamente seguito dal Forlani. Giulio Ballino was a Venetian lawyer, a friend of the Manuzio family, really fond of classical studies. The book De' disegni delle più illustri città, et fortezze del mondo.., printed in Venice in 1569 by Bolognino Zaltieri, contains 50 views and one chart. This work is the first attempt, in Italy, to realize an atlas/text of the main fortresses and cities in the world. Unlike his predecessors, from whom he copied the iconography, Ballino wanted to realize a complex work, with text and an index, so that the reader could know immediately how many works were inside the book. Following Du Pinet's Plantz, Pourtraitz et descriptions de plusieurs ville set forteresses.. Ballino's work is, with all probability, just the first part of an ambitious, bigger project. May be he wanted to publish a Latin edition, hoping to give his book great fame along Europe, but he had to change his mind when Georg Braun & Fransz Hogenberg published their Civitates Orbis Terrarum, which was then the first book to describe urban iconography. Ballino's charts have been issued between 1566 and 1568; according to Albert Ganado (1993), 32 of these happen to be reprints of Forlani & Zenoi's branches, already published for the first time in Il primo libro delle città, et fortezze principali del mondo (1567); the plates of these engravings have been afterwards modified. Some of them have been published in Bertelli's Disegni di alcune più illustri città di fortezze del mondo con aggiunte di alcune isole principali, (1568). The remaining engravings have been prepared by anonymous artists, who also helped Ballino to modify the plates he already possessed. Some examples of this rare work bear an allegorical title page, engraved by the Venetian artist Nicolò Nelli, a popular engraver of the XVI century; other examples bear a blank title page. Both versions have been printed by Zaltieri in 1569. It is quite hard to say which is the first version and which the last one, for the only difference is on the text on verso, with bigger letters in one case. Another difference is that some of the charts in one version have numbers on verso. We might say that those examples without numbers have been printed first, but the analysis of the engravings doesn't support this theory. The engravings listed hereby come from a defective edition; for the preciseness of information, we must add that the authorship of every work has been given to the artist that realized it, even if all of them come from Ballino's collection. This plate refer to the fortresses of the Austro - Hungarian Empire. When the Emperor Ferdinand II died in 1564, the Prince of Transilvania, John Siegmund, started a fierce fight against the Imperial troops. The war ended when Vienna was conquered by the Turks and the Sultan Suliman II; the Sultan eventually died in 1566 in the siege of Szigetvàr. Battles and fights gave birth to a flourishing copperplate market, to diffuse and publicize those events. Domenico Zenoi was the first one to be involved in this activity, immediately followed by Forlani. Copperplate with some slight etching changes; full wide margins, in excellent condition.

        Madonna del Silenzio

      1566. "Bulino, 1566, firmato in lastra, sotto la panca a sinistra Philippus Sericus fecit, e datata MDLXVI, a destra della didascalia. Da un soggetto di Michelangelo Buonarroti. Splendida prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva cn filigrana ""pellegrino nel cerchio con stella"" rifilata alla linea marginale, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il soggetto dell'incisione è tratto dal disegno a sanguigna di Michelangelo della Collezione Duke of Portland di Londra, incluso tra le opere eseguite intorno al 1540 per Vittoria Colonna. La prima traduzione a bulino del disegno è di Giulio Bonasone, e reca la data 1561. Questa incisione rappresenta la seconda delle due versioni del tema che Philippe Soye incise per Antonio Lafrery. La prima, molto diversa nella raffigurazione e posa di tutte le figure, e nei dettagli architettonici, è datata 1565. Questa seconda versione è molto più vicina all'opera del Bonasone. La scena raffigura Maria, seduta, con le gambe accavallate, e il Bambino che dorme sdraiato sulla panca con la testolina appoggiata sulla gamba di lei. La Vergine, con la mano destra, tiene aperto un libro sulle cui pagine sono riportati i versetti biblici relativi alla beatitudine di Maria. Più indietro, a destra, coprendosi la bocca con la mano, è S. Giuseppe, di cui nelle Sacre Scritture non è mai riportata la parola. Sulla sinistra, è raffigurato l'arcangelo Gabriele, con l'indice rivolto verso l'alto, rimandando probabilmente al concetto espresso nella didascalia: DORMIENTE PUERO IESU DIVINA MENS VIGILA ovvero Mentre il bambino dorme, la mente divina vigila. L'incisione reca la dedica a Galesio Reguardi, vescovo di Bagnoregio "datario di Pio IV, Papa"." "Engraving, 1566, signed Philippus Sericus fecit lower left, with the address of Antonio Lafrery and the date MDLXVI lower left. After a drawing by Michelangelo. A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with ""pilgrim in a cirlce with star"" watermark, trimmed to the platemark, good condition. The subject for these print is from a sanguine drawing by Michelangelo in the Duke of Portland's Collection in London, included among the works executed around 1540 for Vittoria Colonna. The first print made of this design is Giulio Bonasone's, which is dated 1561. Philippe Soye engraved two versions of this theme, both published by Antonio Lafrery. The first one, dated 1565 with major changes in the apparence of all the figures. This engraving represents the second version, dated 1566, and close to Bonasone's print. The scene depicts Mary sitting with his legs crossed, and the Christ Child asleep on her lap. The Virgin, with his right hand, holding open a book whose pages are the Biblical verses related to the Beatitude of Mary. Further back, St John the Baptist raising his figure to his lips, On the left, depicts the archangel Gabriel, with the index finger pointing up, probably referring to the concept expressed in the latin caption: DORMIENTE PUERO IESU DIVINA MENS VIGILA (While the Child sleeps, the Divine Mind supervises)." Bartsch, XV.128.66; Catelli Isola, Fortuna di Michelangelo nell'incisione, p. 60 n. 25; Marigliani - Biguzzi, La Collezione Sacra della Bottega di Antonio Lafrery, p. 45 n. 5; Massari, Iulio Bonasone, p. 97 n. 127. 308 440

      apud Guliel. Rovillium, 1566. - apud Guliel. Rovillium, Lugduni (Lyon) 1566, in - 8 (16,7x11,5cm), de (14) 364 pp., relié. - La prima edizione di questi tre trattati Mesuè commentati da Silvio apparsa a Parigi nel 1542 in un cristiano Weschel vol. in Folio. Edizione ha attraversato diverse edizioni nel 1544 e 1548. Brunet III, 1675. Lembo flessibile Velina tempo pieno con tracce di lacci. Mancano alcuni dei lembo superiore. Abu Yahya Ibn Zakariya Masuyah ha detto Jean Mesuè, medico cristiano nato in Khuz vicino a Ninive nel 776 e morto a Baghdad nel 855, dove ha praticato e pratica della medicina, ed è stato il medico personale del califfo Harun al - Rashid. Oltre al ruolo di primo piano ha suonato in medicina araba, che riflette il numero di testi greci, il suo libro di aforismi (assiomi medici) ha avuto un notevole successo in Occidente, alcuni dei quali sono ancora in uso oggi. Ha anche scritto il primo trattato sulla dieta basata sulle proprietà alimentari di Gallien, analizzando gli effetti del cibo sul corpo 140. Inoltre, la medicina araba ha iniziato a influenzare in maniera significativa in Europa nel XV secolo, come arabo aveva commentato e tradotto molti testi greci, tra cui alcuni grandi accademie come Montpellier e Parigi, è qui che troviamo il nostro commentatore, un grande medico del suo tempo, Jacobus Sylvius o Jacques Dubois (1478 - 1554), che officiava a Parigi e Montpellier, guidato da Parigi perché non era MD e portava troppo ombreggiatura sua onore (sono venuti da tutta Europa a consultare). Gli arabi sono soprattutto i padri farmacopea ed è proprio l'interesse di questa edizione, incontro di due grandi medici su questioni Rimedi secoli di distanza. Silvio rénuni in questo lavoro tre grandi opere del Mesuè la questione: Cyril Medicamenta purgentia e De singularis Medicamentis purgantibus. Quanto al libro III, è il Antidotarium grande Mesuè lavoro. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] La première édition de ces 3 traités de Mésué commentés par Sylvius parut en 1542 à Paris chez Christian Weschel en un Vol. in Folio. L'édition connut plusieurs éditions en 1544 et 1548. Brunet III, 1675. Reliure en plein vélin d'époque souple à rabats avec traces de lacets. Manque une partie du rabat supérieur. Abu Zakariya Yahya Ibn Masuyah dit Jean Mesue, médecin chrétien né à Khuz prés de Ninive en 776 et mort à Bagdad en 855 où il exerça et pratiqua la médecine, et qui fut le médecin personnel du khalife Haroun El Rachid. En dehors du rôle prééminent qu'il joua dans la médecine arabe, traduisant nombre de textes grecs, son livre des aphorismes (des axiomes médicaux) eut un succès considérable en occident, dont certains ont encore cours aujourd'hui. Il rédigea également le premier traité de diététique reposant sur les propriétés des aliments de Gallien, analysant les effets de 140 aliments sur le corps. Par ailleurs la médecine arabe commença à influencer d'une manière importante l'Europe au XVe siècle, car les arabes avaient commenté et traduit nombre de textes grecs, et notamment certaines grandes académies telles que Montpellier et Paris, c'est ici que nous retrouvons notre commentateur, un grand médecin de son temps, Jacobus Sylvius ou Jacques Dubois (1478 - 1554), qui officia à Paris, puis à Montpellier, chassé de Paris car il n'était point Docteur en médecine et portait trop d'ombrage par sa renommée (on venait de toute l'Europe pour le consulter). Les arabes sont surtout les pères de la pharmacopée et c'est précisément l'intérêt de cette édition, rencontre de deux grands médecins sur des questions de remèdes à plusieurs siècles d'intervalle. Sylvius a rénuni dans cet ouvrage les trois plus grands ouvrages de Mésué sur la question : Methodus medicamenta purgentia et De singularis medicamentis purgantibus. Quant au livre III, il s'agit de l'Antidotarium, le grand ouvrage de Mesué.

        Delle vite e sententie de' Filosofi Illustri. Di nuouo dal greco ridutto nella lingua italiana per i Rossettini da Prat'Alboino. In Vinegia, appresso Domenico Farri MDLXVI (1566)

      Farri, Domenico, 1566. in - 8, ff. (8), 251, (1 bianco), bel carattere corsivo. Magnifica legatura coeva lionese in vitello bruno con filetto di riquadro e medaglione in stile orientale impressi oro ai piatti; su quello anteriore si legge il nome di Cesare Negrolo entro cartiglio. Dorso a nervi con piccoli ferri in oro e titolo (abili lievi restauri alle cuffie e alle cerniere). Sul titolo grande impresa silogr. dello stampatore. Seconda edizione completa in italiano (prima 1545) delle "Vite e Sentenze" composte in greco da Diogene, scrittore del III sec. d.C., e tradotte da Bartolomeo Rostini. L'opera in dieci libri fornisce preziose notizie per la conoscenza della biografia e del pensiero di un gran numero di filosofi antichi fino al II sec. Testo assai noto nel Medioevo, ebbe enorme successo durante l'Umanesimo ed il Rinascimento. Esemplare appartenuto a Cesare Negrolo, banchiere e mercante di origine milanese, celebre collezionista anche di dipinti, che nel 1569 costituì una società con lo zio Domenico Negrolo per la vendita a Parigi e Lione di tessuti, armi e armature prodotti a Milano. Tornò a Milano nel 1574, dopo la morte dello zio, per iniziare un'attività finanziaria che ebbe enorme successo, salvo poi fallire nel 1585. Nel 1580 venne coinvolto in un eclatante e violento fatto di cronaca. Avverso a Ottaviano Visconti per la volontà sua e del Visconti di sposare la medesima donna. La questione si venne risolta nel convento di S. Maria delle Grazie da Carlo Borromeo, con la rinuncia del Negrolo e le nozze tra il Visconti e la ragazza. La preziosa legatura in cui è inserito l'esemplare venne con tutta probabilità realizzata a Lione negli anni in cui il Negrolo vi soggiornò per lavoro. Magnifico esemplare.

Il s'agit du premier recueil encyclopédique de textes de gynécologie et d'obstétrique publié à la Renaissance. Cette importante compilation, établie sous la direction de Wolff, comprend des traités antiques, arabes ou modernes portant soit sur les organes de la génération de la femme en général, soit sur les maladies et pathologies qui leur sont propres, soit il s'agit de traités d'obstétrique. Les textes sont en édition originale ou ils furent revus et refondus par Wolff. On lit donc, à la suite : - Une "Harmonia gynaecorium", c'est à dire un manuel général de gynécologie constitué par Wolff d'après des citation d'auteurs antiques tels Cléopâtre (une tradition manuscrite ancienne attribue un texte latin tardif, présenté comme une traduction du grec, à la Reine d'Egypte), Teodoro Prisciano et Muscio ; - Des "Gynaecia" extraites des traités de médecine et de chirurgie d'Abulcassis (Al - Zahrawi), médecin arabe qui vécut en Espagne autour de l'an 1000 ; - "Muliebrum liber" de Trotula, que Wolff attribue (par antiféminisme scientifique) à un certain Eros, un affranchi de l'Impératrice romaine Julia ; - "De morbis mulierum curandis liber" d'un certain Nicolas Rocheus, médecin français de la première moitié du XVIe siècle ; - "Mulierum Libri II" de Luigi Bonacciuoli, médecin à Ferrare, dont la première édition de son traité de gynécologie date de 1502 ; - "De mensibus mulierum, et Hominis generatione" de Jacques Dubois (dit Jacobus Sylvius) dont les ouvrages de médecine parurent entres les années 1540 et 1550. Avec sa propre page de titre, l'édition princeps du texte de Muscio (dit Moschion, médecin romain du Ve siècle après J.C.), édité ici par Gesner et Wolff sur une édition grecque de l'époque byzantine. En ouverture de "l'Harmonia", une gravure sur bois représentant les organes féminins, et au sein du texte d'Abulcassis, une dizaine de bois représentant des appareils d'obstétrique. Précieux ensemble qui connut deux rééditions augmentées en moins de 30 ans : une seconde, en 1586, donnée par Bauhin, et une troisième, en 1597, par Israel Spach. Malgré quelques petites déchirures sur le bas des feuillets des colonnes 350 à 450 et une restauration des premiers et derniers feuillets, bon exemplaire dans sa reliure du temps

        La Deposizione

      1566. Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1566/68, monogrammata in lastra in basso a destra. Da un soggetto di Battista Franco. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti la cancellazione del monogramma del Bertelli. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con sottili margini o rifilata al rame, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti all'angolo inferiore destro e nel margine inferiore, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera deriva dall'incisione di Battista Franco, rispetto alla quale è in controparte, ed è assolutamente rara. Attribuita erroneamente a Domenico Zenoi, il cui nome appare in basso al centro quale editore della lastra, probabilmente per il fatto che negli esemplari di secondo stato il monogramma del Bertelli è abraso. Ferrando o Ferdinando Bertelli è membro della famiglia di editori, incisore e mercanti di Venezia, dove insieme al probabile fratello Donato aveva una libreria in San Marco. Sebbene meglio conosciuto come editore di mappe per Gastaldi, Forlani e Camocio, iniziò la sua attività producendo ed incidendo lavori da Tiziano, Farinati, Giulio Romano, Battista del Moro, Battista Franco ed altri, avvalendosi anche della collaborazione di incisori quali Mario Cartaro, Giulio Sanuto, Giovan Battista cavalieri e anche Domenico Zenoi. Non è chiara la relazione tra tutti i personaggi citati, che spesso si alternavano nei ruoli, e spesso è assolutamente impossibile sapere chi sia l'autore della lastra e chi l'editore. Domenico Zenoi ottenne il privilegio per la stampa, della durata quindicennale, dal Senato della Repubblica il 5 dicembre 1566. Tuttavia gli fu revocato il 9 settembre 1568 dal comitato degli Esecutori contro la Bestemmia, per aver pubblicato delle stampe oscene. La datazione dell'opera pertanto è da ricondurre al periodo tra il 1566 ed il 1568. Rarissimo primo stato. Etching and engraving, circa 1566/68, signed in plate lower right. After Battista Franco. Example in the first state of two, before the cancellation of monogram Bertelli. A magnificent impression, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with narrow margins or trimmed on copperplate, small restoration perfectly executed to the bottom right corner and bottom margin, otherwise in excellent condition. The work derives from the engraving by Battista Franco, and is extremely rare. Erroneously attributed to Domenico Zenoi, whose name appears at the bottom center of the plate as a publisher, probably due to the fact that in the example of the second state the monogram of Bertelli is abraded. Ferrando or Ferdinando Bertelli is a member of the family of publishers, engraver and merchants of Venice, where together with the likely brother Donato had a library in San Marco. Although best known as a publisher of maps for Gastaldi and Forlani Camocio, began his career producing and engraving works by Tiziano, Farinati, Giulio Romano, Battista del Moro, Battista Franco, and others, with the collaboration of engravers such as Mario Cartaro, Giulio Sanuto, Giovan Battista Cavalieri and even Dominic Zenoi. It is not clear the relationship between all the characters mentioned, which often alternated in the roles, and it is often impossible to know who is the author of the plate and who the publisher. Domenico Zenoi obtained the privilege to print, lasting fifteen, by the Senate December 5, 1566. However, it was withdrawn September 9, 1568 by the Committee of Executors against Blasphemy for publishing obscene prints. The date of the work therefore is attributable to the period between 1566 and 1568. Extremely rare first state. Bartsch (Franco) vol. XVI, p. 125, 17; Bury, The Print in Italy, p. 236; www.britishmuseum.org/research/search_the_collection_database/search_object_image.aspx 160 220

Bekanntnuß deß waaren Gloubens, unnd einfalte erlüterung der rächten allgemeinen Leer un(d) houptartickel der reinen Christlichen Religion, von den Dienern der kyrchen Christi in der Eydgnoschaft, die da sind zu Zürych, Bern, und Schaffhusen, in der Statt Sant Gallen, in der Statt Chur, unnd in den dryen Pündten, ouch zu Müllhusen und Byell,&hellip, Zürich, Christopher Froschauer, March 1566.Two works in one volume, 4to, (4), 48 leaves + (4) 68 leaves. Old boards, some light brown - ing, two small stamps on the blank margins of the first title - page, but a very fine copy.EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITIONS (first issues) of both Latin and German redactions of the so - called Second Helvetic Confession, Bullinger's crowning achievement, the most comprehensive and authoritative Reformed confession of faith. It not only became the international standard of belief for many of the Reformed churches and a key frame of reference for new doctrinal departures, but also remains part of the Reformed heritage today. The Confession consists of thirty chapters, which cover in natural order all the articles of faith and discipline which then challenged the attention of the Church (cf. A.C. Cochrane, Reformed Confessions of the Sixteenth Century, Louisville, KY 2003, pp. 220 - 223).The First Helvetic Confession known also as the Second Confession of Basel, was drawn up in that city in 1536 by Heinrich Bullinger and the convert Leo Jud of Zürich, Kaspar Megander of Bern, Oswald Myconius and Simon Grynaeus of Basel, Martin Bucer and Wolfgang Capito of Strasbourg, with other representatives from Schaffhausen, St. Gall, Mülhausen and Biel. The first draft was in Latin and the Zürich delegates objected to its Lutheran phraseology. Leo Jud's German translation was more or less accepted by all, and after Myconius and Grynaeus had modified the Latin form, both versions were agreed to and adopted on February 26, 1536.In time, however, the Swiss churches had found the First Helvetic Confession too short and still too Lutheran. Thus Bullinger started to compose what became the Second Helvetic Confession as a private exercise and an abiding testimony of the faith in which he had lived and in which he wished to die. He showed it to Peter Martyr, who fully consented to it, shortly before his death (Nov. 12, 1562). Two years later he elaborated it more fully during the raging of the pestilence, and added it to his will, which was to be delivered to the magistrate of Zurich after his death. But events in Germany gave it a public character. The pious Elector of the Palatinate, Frederick III, being threatened by the Lutherans with exclusion from the treaty of peace on account of his secession to the Reformed Church and publication of the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), requested Bullinger (1565) to prepare a clear and full exposition of the Reformed faith, that he might answer the charges of heresy and dissension so constantly brought against the same. Bullinger sent him a manuscript copy of his Confession. The Elector was so much pleased with it that he desired to have it translated and published in Latin and German before the meeting of the Imperial Diet, which was to assemble at Augsburg in 1566, to act on his alleged apostasy. But he made such a noble defense of his faith before the Diet, that even his Lutheran opponents were filled with admiration for his piety, and thought no longer of charging him with heresy.In the meantime the Swiss felt the need of such a Confession as a closer bond of union. The First Helvetic Confession was deemed too short, and the Zurich Confession of 1545, the Zurich Consensus of 1549, and the Geneva Consensus of 1552 touched only the articles of the Lord's Supper and predestination. Conferences were held, and Théodore de Bèze came in person to Zurich to take part in the work. Bullinger freely consented to a few changes, and prepared also the German version. Geneva, Berne, Schaffhausen, Biel, the Grisons, St. Gall, and Mühlhausen expressed their agreement. Basel alone, which had its own Confession, declined for a long time, but ultimately acceded.The new Confession appeared at Zurich, March 12, 1566, in both languages, at public expense, and was forwarded to the Elector and to Philip of Hesse. Glarus, Basel, Appenzell, Neuchâtel (1568), France (at the Synod of La Rochelle, 1571), Poland (1571 and 1578), Hungary (at the Synod of Debreczin, 1567), and Scotland (1566) approved the Confession. A French translation appeared in 1566 in Geneva under the care of Bèze. Later it was translated not only into English, but also into Dutch, Magyar, Polish, Italian, Arabic, and Turkish (cf. W. Hildebrand R. Zimmermann, Bedeutung und Geschichte des Zweiten Helvetischen Bekenntnisses, Zürich, 1938, pp. 58 - 60). Like most of the Confessions of the sixteenth century, the Helvetic Confession is expanded beyond the limits of a popular creed into a lengthy theological treatise. It is the matured fruit of the preceding labors of Bullinger and the Swiss Churches. It is in substance a restatement of the First Helvetic Confession, in the same order of topics, but with great improvements in matter and form. It is scriptural, wise and judicious, full and elaborate, yet simple and clear, uncompromising towards the errors of Rome, moderate in its dissent from the Lutheran dogmas. It proceeds on the conviction that the Reformed faith is in harmony with the true Catholic faith of all ages, especially the ancient Greek and Latin Church.Hence it is preceded by the Imperial edict of 380 AD (from the recognized Justinian code), which draws the line between orthodoxy and heresy, and excludes as heresies only the departures from the Apostolic and Nicene faith. It inserts also the brief Trinitarian creed ascribed to the Roman Pope Damasus (from the writings of Jerome), and referred to in the decree as a standard of orthodoxy. As in former Confessions, so also in this, Bullinger distinctly recognizes, in the spirit of Christian liberty and progress, the constant growth in the knowledge of the Word of God, and the consequent right of improvement in symbolical statements of the Christian faith.On the whole, the Second Helvetic Confession occupies the first rank among the Reformed Confessions. Already the great Swiss theologian and historian Karl Rudolf Hagenbach in his Kritische Geschichte der Entstehung und Schicksale der ersten Basler Confession (Basel, 1827, p. 86) wrote: &ldquo,In ihrer ganzen Anlage und in der Durchführung einzelner Punkte, namentlich in praktischer Beziehung (in der Scheidung des Geistlichen and Weltlichen, u.s.w.) ist sie ein wahres dogmatisches Kunstwerk zu nennen&rdquo,. See also J. Staedtke, Die histo - rische Bedeutung der 'Confessio Helvetica Posterior', in: &ldquo,Vierhundert Jahre &lsquo,Confessio Helvetica Posterior' &rdquo,, Bern, 1967, pp. 8 - 18.Heinrich Bullinger was Zwingli's successor as Antistes of the Zurich church. He had an influence throughout Europe owing to his letters (of which are extant more than twelve thousand), his personal ministrations to exiles, and his voluminous publications. He corresponded with leading French Protestants and had French and Italian exiles in his home from time to time. He corresponded with Protestants in Poland and Hungary. His works were widely read in the Netherlands. His influence was especially strong in England, no doubt owing to the many contacts with the English, including John Hooper, who lived in close connection with Bullinger from 1547 to 1549. Bullinger unavoidably built on the Zwinglian foundation, but he also went beyond Zwingli, adding his own genius and leaving a lasting legacy to the Reformed churches. His most distinctive doctrine was his theology of the covenant, which was closely connected with his view of the Christian community (cf. F. Büsser, Heinrich Bullinger, Zürich, 2004/5, passim, and T. Kirby, Heinrich Bullinger, 1504 - 1575: Life - Thought - Influence, in: &ldquo,Zwingliana&rdquo,, 32, 2005, pp. 107 - 117).At the bottom of the title - page of the Latin edition is found the autograph dedication by Henrich Bullinger to Wilhelm Meyer von Knonau (d. 1570), who was the latter's pupil in the Zurich Academy (see the handwritten list of his pupils in the Zürich Staatsar - chiv). Wilhelm's father Gerold (b. 1509) was Zwingli's step - son (in fact Anna Reinhart was married with Hans Mayer von Knonau and after his death in 1517 she married Zwingli in 1522 - see O. Farner, Anna Reinhard, die Gattin Huldrych Zwinglis, in: &ldquo,Zwingliana&rdquo, 3, 1916, pp. 203 - 204, 244). Gerold died as his step - father in the battle of Kappel (October 11, 1531). Wilhelm's mother Anna died in 1538 and it can be presumed that he then was supported by Heinrich Bullinger. In 1551 Wilhelm became a member of the Zurich Great Council as &lsquo,Achtzehner von der Constaffel' and in 1560 treasurer of the chapter of the Zürich Grossmünster as well as a member of the guild &ldquo,Zum Schneggen' (cf. E. Usteri, Die Schildnerschaft zum Schneggen, Geschichte der Schilde seit 1559, Zürich 1969, p. 13, on the family see H. Schulthess, Das Junker - und Gerichtsherrengeschlecht der Meyer von Knonau, in &ldquo,Kulturbilder aus Zürichs Vergangenheit&rdquo,, 1, Zürich, 1930, pp. 157 - 163).VD 16, B - 9590 and B - 9593, Index Aureliensis, 127.433 and 127.432, J.

        EPISTOLARUM LIBRI DUO.

      - Quorum posterior iam primùm in lucem prodit. [Vinheta tipográfica de Plantin]. ANTUERPIAE, Ex oficina Christophori Plantini. CIC. IC. LXVI. [1566]. In 8º (15,5x10 cm) col: 258, [4] pags. Encadernação tardia inteira de pele com ferros a ouro na lombada, apresentando o corte das folhas carminado. Exemplar com título de posse da época; obliteração contemporânea por colagem na folha de rosto; e 2 ex-libris (um moderno e outro do inicio do século XX). Obra com duas epistolas deste grande filósofo da Renascença, escritas depois da sua estadia em Portugal que o mesmo refere no início desta obra. Nicolau Clenardo (Nicolas Cleynaerts) nasceu na Flandres em 1493 e morreu em Granada em 1542. Licencia-se em Teologia na Universidade de Lovaina (1519). Passa por Paris, seguindo depois (1531) para Salamanca, em Espanha, onde se dedica ao ensino particular e público. Em finais de 1533, André de Resende, a convite de D. João III, trá-lo para Portugal, onde se destaca como professor das letras clássicas. É mestre do infante D. Henrique, arcebispo de Braga, quando este reside ainda na corte em Évora. Quatro anos mais tarde encontra-se a exercer o seu ensino em Braga. O sonho de aprender árabe e de pacificamente converter os Maometanos ao catolicismo levam-no para Granada e, dois anos depois, para o Norte de África (1540). Regressa a Granada em 1542, onde vem a falecer sem ter concretizado o seu sonho. Para o conhecimento da sociedade portuguesa do século XVI, não só no campo cultural mas também nos campos económico e social, as suas cartas, escritas em latim (Epistolarum Libri Duo ? publicadas em 1566 e 1606), são fundamentais. A good copy of a small great book of the Renaissance period. Considered the best and more perfectly achieved work of Clenardo. Late binding, but no loss of paper on this 18th Century renewal. Copy with contemporary ownership title, partially erased with a later scrap on the title page; and 2 ex-libris (a modern one, and one of the early 20th Century). Contemporary ink erasures in pages: 12, 56, 57, 58, 163, and 165 without significant loss of text. This work contains with 2 letters (epistolary works) or Books reunited after the death of this great philosopher of the Renaissance, and it was written after his stay in Portugal, Spain and Morocco, which he refers since the beginning of the text. The second «Epistola» has its own title page that corresponds to pp. 105/106 of the book. The Emperor Maximilian granted the rights to release the book to the printer Christopher Plantin because (as he says in the Privilegium, or Grant) he was promoting a honest knowledge. His typographical resources were vast in order to print this book: namely, the tradition of printing beautiful books as the Emblemata Sambuci; Greek and Arabic fonts transposing more than a dozen times the passages of the Kohran, and comparing them with the Greek language (e. g. the words chistum verbum dei, alfakius, alcoranum, paradisum, laus deo, etc), and typographical letters of a reduced size and out of clear fonts that still in use nowadays. The problems of the languages are focused in the Book I. In page 82/83 there are references to Erasmus. Then in Book II there is a focus in the revelation of the word of God to Mahammad, and later on the reason of the opposition of Latins and Arabs in which the Ishmaelite play a role (v. pp 224-225). Nicolau Clenardo (Nicholas Cleynaerts) was born in the Flanders in 1493 and died in Granada, Spain, in 1542. Graduated in Theology at the University of Leuven (1519). Then went to Paris, and later (1531) to Salamanca, Spain, where he was a private and public teacher. In late 1533, André de Resende, at the invitation of the King John III, called him to Portugal, where he was a professor of classical languages. As professor of the prince he resides in court palace in Évora. Four years later he was called to the city of Braga. His dream of learning Arabic and peacefully convert to Catholicism the Muslim took him to Granada and t

Der Absud des Wurzelstockes ist ein schleimlösendes Mittel bei Brustleiden, auch wird er gegen Gicht und Lähmungen gebraucht Leonhart Fuchs [?f?ks] (1501 – 10 May 1566), sometimes spelled Leonhard Fuchs,[1] was a German physician and botanist. His chief notability is as the author of a large book about plants and their uses as medicines, i.e. a Herbal Book. It was first published in 1542 in Latin. It has about 500 accurate and detailed drawings of plants, which were printed from woodcuts. The drawings are the book's most notable advance on its predecessors.[2] Although drawings were in use beforehand in other Herbal books, Fuchs' Herbal book proved and emphasized high-quality drawings as the most telling way to specify what a plant name stands for. The botanical genus Fuchsia is named in his honour, and consequently the colour fuchsia. Fuchs was born in 1501 in Wemding in the Duchy of Bavaria. After attending a school in Heilbronn, Fuchs went to the Marienschule in Erfurt, Thuringia at the age of twelve, and graduated as Baccalaureus artium. In 1524 he became Magister Artium in Ingolstadt, and received a doctor of medicine degree in the same year. From 1524-1526 he practiced as a doctor in Munich, until he received a chair of medicine at Ingolstadt in 1526. From 1528-1531 he was the personal physician of Georg, Margrave of Brandenburg in Ansbach. Fuchs was called to Tübingen by Ulrich, Duke of Württemberg in 1533 to help in reforming the University of Tübingen in the spirit of humanism. He created its first medicinal garden in 1535 and served as chancellor seven times, spending the last thirty-one years of his life as professor of medicine. Fuchs died in Tübingen in 1566. Like his medieval predecessors and his contemporaries, Fuchs was heavily influenced by the three Greek and Roman writers on medicine and materia medica, Dioscorides, Hippocrates, and Galen. He wanted to fight the Arab hegemony in medicine, as it had been transmitted by the Medical School of Salerno, and to "return" to the Greek authors. But he saw the importance of practical experience as well and offered botanical field days for the students, where he demonstrated the medicinal plants in situ. He founded one of the first German botanical gardens. MONTED BEHIND PASSEPARTOUT, SIZE: 40x30 and 30x20 cm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Tiguri: apud C. Froschouerum, 1567. Folio (33.5 cm; 13.125"). [6], 242, [17] ff. (lacks final blank). Wonderful large folio volume containing the Works (in Latin translation) of St. Clement of Alexandria (ca. 150 – ca. 215), here in the second edition as edited by Gentian Hervet (1499–1584); the first was in 1556 from Isengrin's press. In this edition, Isengrin's device appears on the title-page and the verso of the final leaf. As with the first edition, this has scholia at the end, notes (including sidenotes), and an index. The contents are Liber adhortatorius adversus gentes, qui Protrepticus inscribitur; Paeagogi libri tres; and Stromaton sive Commentariorum, de varia multipliciq[ue] literatura, ad instituendum Christianum philosophum, libri octo. The second work is Peter Martyr's commentaries on Corinthians, here in the second edition. It has a full-page woodcut => portrait of him on the recto of leaf aa6. The printer's woodcut device is on the title-page and there are numerous woodcut initials. The sidenotes are printed in italic while the text proper is in roman. Peter Martyr (8 September 1499 – 12 November 1562), was an Italian theologian who began his religious life as an Augustinian friar, converted to the Protestant cause, 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. Both works are uncommon in these editions in the U.S.: We locate four copies of the first title and two of the Vermigli, but one copy of each title has been deaccessioned, meaning current holdings are three and one only. Binding: Contemporary alum-tawed pig over wooden boards with bevelled edges and metal and leather clasps; one clasp perished. Leather tooled elaborately in blind using a variety of rolls and fillets, including one roll incorporating the date 1546, a medallion of David and his harp, and another medallion depicting John the Baptist with the words below the image, "Ecce Agnus Dei. Bound as above. Ex-library with bookplate on front pastedown, small blind pressure- (not perf.) stamp on title-page and remnant of charge pocket at rear; six-digit number stamped in lower margin of one leaf. Early inked ownership indicia on title-page and old private ownership stamp on front free endpaper; a little old marginalia and underlining. A very little foxing and the odd spot only. => Excellent copies of both works in a handsome contemporary binding.

Old boards, some light brown- ing, two small stamps on the blank margins of the first title-page, but a very fine copy.EXTREMELY RARE FIRST EDITIONS (first issues) of both Latin and German redactions of the so-called Second Helvetic Confession, Bullinger's crowning achievement, the most comprehensive and authoritative Reformed confession of faith. It not only became the international standard of belief for many of the Reformed churches and a key frame of reference for new doctrinal departures, but also remains part of the Reformed heritage today. The Confession consists of thirty chapters, which cover in natural order all the articles of faith and discipline which then challenged the attention of the Church (cf. A.C. Cochrane, Reformed Confessions of the Sixteenth Century, Louisville, KY 2003, pp. 220-223).The First Helvetic Confession known also as the Second Confession of Basel, was drawn up in that city in 1536 by Heinrich Bullinger and the convert Leo Jud of Zürich, Kaspar Megander of Bern, Oswald Myconius and Simon Grynaeus of Basel, Martin Bucer and Wolfgang Capito of Strasbourg, with other representatives from Schaffhausen, St. Gall, Mülhausen and Biel. The first draft was in Latin and the Zürich delegates objected to its Lutheran phraseology. Leo Jud's German translation was more or less accepted by all, and after Myconius and Grynaeus had modified the Latin form, both versions were agreed to and adopted on February 26, 1536.In time, however, the Swiss churches had found the First Helvetic Confession too short and still too Lutheran. Thus Bullinger started to compose what became the Second Helvetic Confession as a private exercise and an abiding testimony of the faith in which he had lived and in which he wished to die. He showed it to Peter Martyr, who fully consented to it, shortly before his death (Nov. 12, 1562). Two years later he elaborated it more fully during the raging of the pestilence, and added it to his will, which was to be delivered to the magistrate of Zurich after his death. But events in Germany gave it a public character. The pious Elector of the Palatinate, Frederick III, being threatened by the Lutherans with exclusion from the treaty of peace on account of his secession to the Reformed Church and publication of the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), requested Bullinger (1565) to prepare a clear and full exposition of the Reformed faith, that he might answer the charges of heresy and dissension so constantly brought against the same. Bullinger sent him a manuscript copy of his Confession. The Elector was so much pleased with it that he desired to have it translated and published in Latin and German before the meeting of the Imperial Diet, which was to assemble at Augsburg in 1566, to act on his alleged apostasy. But he made such a noble defense of his faith before the Diet, that even his Lutheran opponents were filled with admiration for his piety, and thought no longer of charging him with heresy.In the meantime the Swiss felt the need of such a Confession as a closer bond of union. The First Helvetic Confession was deemed too short, and the Zurich Confession of 1545, the Zurich Consensus of 1549, and the Geneva Consensus of 1552 touched only the articles of the Lord's Supper and predestination. Conferences were held, and Théodore de Bèze came in person to Zurich to take part in the work. Bullinger freely consented to a few changes, and prepared also the German version.

This is the first Italian edition of this portion of Gmara's text (the first, i.e. Parte Secondo, first appeared in 1554). Gmara served as Corts's secretary from 1540, when the conquistador returned to Spain. 'Gomara's history is a good history; he derived his information from the highest sources, and he wrote with an elegant brevity and a sense of arrangement that contrasted favorably with the rambling incoherencies of many of his contemporaries. Small wonder it was a favorite book of the time' (Boies Penrose).

On lit donc, à la suite : -Une "Harmonia gynaecorium", c'est à dire un manuel général de gynécologie constitué par Wolff d'après des citation d'auteurs antiques tels Cléopâtre (une tradition manuscrite ancienne attribue un texte latin tardif, présenté comme une traduction du grec, à la Reine d'Egypte), Teodoro Prisciano et Muscio ; -Des "Gynaecia" extraites des traités de médecine et de chirurgie d'Abulcassis (Al-Zahrawi), médecin arabe qui vécut en Espagne autour de l'an 1000 ; -"Muliebrum liber" de Trotula, que Wolff attribue (par antiféminisme scientifique) à un certain Eros, un affranchi de l'Impératrice romaine Julia ; -"De morbis mulierum curandis liber" d'un certain Nicolas Rocheus, médecin français de la première moitié du XVIe siècle ; -"Mulierum Libri II" de Luigi Bonacciuoli, médecin à Ferrare, dont la première édition de son traité de gynécologie date de 1502 ; -"De mensibus mulierum, et Hominis generatione" de Jacques Dubois (dit Jacobus Sylvius) dont les ouvrages de médecine parurent entres les années 1540 et 1550. Avec sa propre page de titre, l'édition princeps du texte de Muscio (dit Moschion, médecin romain du Ve siècle après J.C.), édité ici par Gesner et Wolff sur une édition grecque de l'époque byzantine. En ouverture de "l'Harmonia", une gravure sur bois représentant les organes féminins, et au sein du texte d'Abulcassis, une dizaine de bois représentant des appareils d'obstétrique. Précieux ensemble qui connut deux rééditions augmentées en moins de 30 ans : une seconde, en 1586, donnée par Bauhin, et une troisième, en 1597, par Israel Spach. Malgré quelques petites déchirures sur le bas des feuillets des colonnes 350 à 450 et une restauration des premiers et derniers feuillets, bon exemplaire dans sa reliure du temps [Attributes: Hard Cover]
