      Bologna, A. Benatius, 1566.. Titel, 3 nn. Bl., fol. 114, 2 nn. Bl., fol 36. Mit einigen figürlichen HSchnitt-Initialen und zahlr. schematischen Holzschnitten. Folio (29,5 x 20,5 cm). Späterer HLederbd mit Rückenschild.. Berieben bzw. beschabt, etwas bestoßen und fleckig; Außengelenke am oberen Kapital geplatzt (und fixiert); alte Inventarnummer (in Blaustift) auf Titelei, hier auch alt hinterlegter Ausschnitt (kein Textverlust); Inventarnummer auf fliegendem Vorsatz gestempelt; Randfleck auf fol. 17, sonst sehr sauberes, breitrandiges Exemplar. Apollonius (ca. 262-190 v. u. Z.), neben Euklid und Archimedes der bedeutenste Mathematiker des Altertums (nur von den beiden ersten sind authentische Schriften überliefert), verfaßte 8 Bücher über die Kegelschnitte, von denen 7 erhalten sind, davon wurden I-IV erst 1270 ins Lateinische übersetzt, während die Bücher V-VIII unbekannt blieben. Die Handschrift einer arabischen Übersetzung (um 800 n. u. Z.) umfaßte die Bücher I-VII und wurde von dem Arabisten und Diplomaten Jacob Golius 1629 wahrscheinlich in Marokko erworben (vgl. Jöcher I, 1280f); nach seinem Tod (1667) gelangte das Manuskript in den Besitz des Astronomen und Mathematikers Edmund Halley (1656-1742), der es schließlich 1710 zusammen mit einer Rekonstruktion des verschollenen Buches VIII in Griechisch und einer lateinischen Übertragung herausgab (Poggendorff I, 1005; iSTC 34). Die Bücher I-IV, zu diesem Zeitpunkt die einzig bekannten, erschienen in einer lateinischen Übersetzung des Giovanni Battista Memmo (J.-B. Memus) 1537 zum ersten Mal im Druck (Brunet I, 347); vorliegende Bologneser Ausgabe des Federigo Commandino (1509-1575) war bis zur Halley-Edition die einflußreichere und wurde von den zeitgenössischen Mathematiker wie Descartes, Newton, J. Kepler, B. Pascal, P. de Fermat oder G. Desargues bei ihren Arbeiten nutzbringend rezipiert. Apollonius' Bedeutung für den Zeitraum von 1800 Jahren erhellt sich daraus, dass er u. a. eine einheitliche Methode zur Berechnung von Kegelschnitten entwickelte, die in ihren Formen von Parabel, Ellipse und Hyperbel rein geometrisch (nicht arithmetisch wie bei den Vorläufern) vorgestellt wurden als Schnitte einer festen Ebene durch denselben Kegel in verschiedenen Neigungswinkeln (die Bezeichnungen Ellipse und Hyperbel stammen von ihm). Zudem lieferte er die Grundlagen zur 'Rettung der paradoxen Phänomene' (z. b. die 'rückläufige Bewegung' des Mars), die Ptolemäus bei Begründung seines geozentrischen Weltbildes erklären mußte. Unter dem Einfluß von Platon legte er die Grundlage zur Theorie der epizyklischen Planetenbahnen, nach der die Planeten zwar kreisförmige Bahnen haben, deren Mittelpunkte jedoch sich ihrerseits auf Kreisbahnen der Erde bewegen. Provenienz: aus dem Besitz von Vincenzo Scamozzi (ca. 1550 Vincenza -1616 Venedig), Baumeister und Architekturtheoretiker ("Architettura universale". Venedig 1615) , mit dessen hs. Besitzvermerk auf Titelei. V. S. als neoklassischer Interpret Palladios nahm Rekurs auf die platonische Ideenlehre und ordnete die Funktion seiner zahlreichen Gebäude (u. a. dem Palazzo Trissino-Barton) einem ahistorischen Begriff von Schönheit unter, wie er ihn z. B. in der Mathematik verwirklicht sah. Konsequent also, dass in seiner umfänglichen Bibliothek Apollonius auch als Basis für Berechnungen nicht fehlen durfte; möglicherweise stammt die Glosse "Hyperbola Ellipsi Circuli" (fol. 25r) zu einem Holzschnitt ebenfalls von seiner Hand. Poggendorff II 765; Thieme/B. 29. 524-27; Hartmann²: Baukunst. II, 232.

        Il Disegno Del Discoperto Della Nova Franza

      Venice: Bolognino Zaltieri, 1566. . Venice: Bolognino Zaltieri, 1566. Single sheet, float-mounted and framed (10 4/8 x 15 6/8 inches). EXCEPTIONALLY FINE engraved map of North America. THE EARLIEST PRINTED MAP DEVOTED TO THE CONTINENT OF NORTH AMERICA, AND THE FIRST MAP TO SHOW THE STRAIT OF ANIAN WHICH SEPARATES AMERICA FROM ASIA The modest dimensions of Paolo Forlani's rare and finely engraved map of North America belie its signal importance in the history of New World cartography. It is the earliest printed map devoted solely to North America, the first to portray that landmass as a separate continent and the first to show the so-called Strait of Anian separating America from Asia at the approximate location of the Bering Strait (in a purely coincidental instance of early geographical myth dovetailing with the discoveries of later exploration). North America "began to take shape geographically in the printing shops of Venice during the middle decades of the sixteenth century. The first depictions of the American continent appeared on early world maps as the eastern component of the Asian land mass" (Cohen). Entitled "Il Disegno Del Discoperto Della Nova Franza, il quale s'e hauuto ultimamente dalla nouissima nauigatione de' Franzesi in quel luogo" (or, 'The Drawing of the Discovery of New France, recently derived from the Newest Voyage of the French in that Region") Forlani based his rendering largely on the western part of a world map published by his colleague, the great Venetian cartographer Giacomo Gastaldi, several years before. Gastaldi had been the first to formulate the concept of the Strait of Anian, a name that probably originated with Ania, a Chinese province mentioned in a 1559 edition of Marco Polo's travels. Forlani's early graphic depiction of Gastaldi's mistaken theory, which persisted well into the eighteenth century, makes this map a cornerstone work in the mapping of America. In the early 1560s, Forlani also published a map of South America and the West Indies, 'La descrittione de tutto il Peru', and with this 1565 map of North America he completed his coverage of the New World. The map stretches from Greenland down the coast of Canada and the Atlantic Seaboard to the West Indies, including a corner of South America, and from the coast of China in the west to the Azores and Cape Verde in the east. Until fairly recently, the map was attributed to Venetian publisher Bolognino Zaltieri, whose name and imprint appear on the second state, published in 1566. As David Woodward has demonstrated, however, authorship should be ascribed to Forlani, who sold some copperplates - including, presumably, the one used to print this map - to Zaltieri sometime around late 1565 or early 1566. Zaltieri then altered the plate, adding his own name, and proceeded to issue his own examples of the map, in a practice of appropriation (or licit plagiarism) that was quite common in the fluid world of Venetian map publishing. This is an extremely rare example of this fascinating map, a landmark in the history of the mapping of America, here in outstanding condition. Cohen, "Mapping of the West", pages 29-30. R.V.

        DAEMONOLOGIE, IN FORME OF A DIALOGUE. Divided Into Three Books. 1597

      Emerald City [Seattle]: Ouroboros Press., 2013 [actually, 2014].. Emerald City [Seattle]: Ouroboros Press., 2013 [actually, 2014].. Deluxe Hellmouth Edition, Bound in Quarter Snakeskin. Hardcover. Fine. Deluxe, Limited edition of just 25 copies. Small 12mo, original publisher's binding of quarter white snakeskin over black cloth boards, the spine with raised bands and gilt rules, black leather label titled in gilt, front & rear panels with a gilt symbol of publisher's imprint (the Ouroboros), black silk bookmarker, marbled endpapers. 120 pp, frontispiece image of a demon, folding plate of the 'Hellmouth', decorative title page, head- and tail-pieces throughout the text. The deluxe 'Hellmouth' edition, limited to just 25 copies; a further 45 copies were issued in full black leather and 606 copies in cloth & dust jacket. A fine copy without dust jacket, as issued. ¶ James VI and I (1566 - 1625) was King of Scotland as James VI, and King of England and King of Ireland as James I. His 1597 work 'Daemonologie' was written after his involvement in the North Berwick witch trials. While traveling by ship, the King’s journey was beset with an unexpected storm at sea which nearly sank the vessel and greatly delayed the voyage. The storm was blamed on witchcraft, and several nobles of the Scottish court were implicated. This led to the first major persecution of witches in Scotland, and James involved himself firsthand in the prosecution. Many were investigated and confessions extracted by torture, providing damning details of Sorcery, Devilry and reports of the Witches Sabbath. The results of those confessions serve as a foundation for his 'Daemonologie', which supports the demonic origins of the black arts and witchcraft, as opposed to the works of Reginald Scot and Johannes Weirus, whom James debunks in the Preface to this work. An important work: James was responsible for the wholesale persecution of witches - between 1603 and 1625, there were about twenty witchcraft trials a year in Scotland – nearly 450 in total. Half of the accused were found guilty and executed. This work serves as a monument of the terrible inhumanity society can be capable of.

        Quadernuccio di Ma Luisa Donna fu di Luigi de Medici segnato A, legato con coreggie verde

      [Florence or Tuscany],: , 1566-1573.. [Florence or Tuscany], 1566-1573. Agenda format (334 x 111 mm). 96 leaves: 1-616 (6/14-16 blank), page openings foliated to 92 (foliation in arabic numerals on versos and in roman numerals on recots), 3 blank leaves at end. Irregular line numbers, not more than 32/33, written in brown ink in a fluent Italian cursive, the pages crossed through diagonally. Small loosely inserted slip inside front cover identifying the owner. Contemporary Italian tacketed laced-case parchment stationery binding with fore-edge flap, sewn on two sewing supports consisting of a pair of goatskin bands originally dyed dark green (the color mostly faded to brown), stitched with intersecting parchment strips forming X’s; upper cover with lthe word “Quadernuccio” in neat gothic lettering at top scraped neatly out of the parchment, and a large ornate capital A at center within circular pen-and-ink cartouche, no. 113 lettered in later ink below, thong attachments for fore-edge flap partially preserved, the inner parchment unlined, printer’s waste used in neat backing thong inside front cover.***& & A fascinating sixteenth-century manuscript documenting six years of expenses for a wealthy female member of the Medici family, the head of her household; preserved in its original stationery binding, and in impeccable condition.& & The first page of the quadernuccio contains a devout reflexion or prayer at top, and the above title at center. The inserted slip bears the same title and the date 1566 but uses a different form of Luisa’s father’s name (?Buigliano?). The earliest date mentioned in the accounts is 26 March 1566; the latest is the 13th of August [1573]. & & Signora Luisa clearly supervised all the familial expenses, presumably after the death of her father: covering the years 1566-1573, the account book provides a straight chronological list of expenses ranging from the many costs entailed by the family’s house and estate to domestic expenses including wine and writing supplies. Payments are made to repair the palazzo (palagio del podesta) and to dig sewer drainages; the gamekeeper Matteo di Cristofano, whose name appears repeatedly, is paid his salary; there are costs for grinding the wheat; the mule needs to be shoed. At home barrels of vin santo are a regular expense, and there are costs for writing supplies, including an entry for an account book similar to this one (un quaderno di fogli per fare un quadernuccio...). & & Luisa’s father Luigi de’ Medici, one of the less illustrious scions of the dynasty, is briefly identified in the online Medici archive a Captain in Livorno from a document dated 1538. The scrawled entries were no doubt recorded in the notebook by the family’s busy caretaker or majordomo.The title indicates that the account book is marked with an A and bound with green leather straps.

        CONICORUM LIBRI QUATTUOR Una cum pappi Alexandrini Lemmatibus, et Commentariis Eutocii Ascalonitae SERENUS OF ANZI Libri Duo. Unus de Secrione Cylindri, alter de Sectione Conti

      Bologna: Alessandro Benacci , 1566. Bologna: Alessandro Benacci , 1566. First Commandino edition. Folio (215mm x 315mm), two parts in one volume as issued. Contemporary vellum lettered in manuscript to the spine. Minor repairs to the head of the spine. Contents sometime recased. Internally well margined, with some spotting and occasional early marginalia, but a generally clean and fresh copy. Illustrated with woodcut diagrams throughout the text and woodcut initials. The most important text on conic sections, influencing many later scholars including Ptolemy, Newton, and Descartes. "The invention of conic sections is attributed to Menaechmus (4th cent. BC), a member of Plato's Academy at Athens. Various species of conic sections were obtained by truncating an acute-angled, right-angled and obtuse-angled cone by a plane perpendicular to the generator of the cone.... The greatest ancient writer on conic sections was Apollonius of Perga (c.262-c.190 BC). His famous work Conics consisted of eight books and contained 487 propositions. Apollonius introduced the terms ellipse, parabola and hyperbola and showed that various sections of the cone can be obtained by varying the inclination of the intersecting plane... The Latin translation of the first four books of Apollonius by Gianbattista Memo appeared in Venice in 1537. The most notable printed edition of Apollonius' Conics in the sixteenth century is based on the translation by Federico Commandino (1506-1575), who played the key role in the project of editing, translating and publishing classical Greek mathematical texts under the auspices of the Duke of Urbino."

        De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, libri VI . . . Narratio prima, per M. Georgium Ioachimum Rheticum ad D. Ioan. Schonerum scripta.

      Petri [1566]. With printer?s device on title and verso of last leaf and numerous text woodcuts and tables. Contemporary vellum, author and title in ink on spine; title page repaired on upper corner and on fore-edge. A fine, clean copy. Second edition of Copernicus? epochal work. Copernicus (1473-1543), the founder of modern astronomy, was the first to propound the theory of planetary orbits. This work revealed one of the greatest advances in human thought proving that the Earth was not after all the central point around which the entire universe revolved. Copernicus initially was hesitant to have his system printed, believing that any suggestion that the Earth moved would be considered heretical and cause him trouble. It was likely that this edition ?was printed soon after the 1543 printing had sold out; the two editions must have been almost identical in size because the same number of each printing survive (Gingerich).? Added here for the first time is Rheticus? famous tract, Narratio prima, printed in the form of a letter to his teacher Joh. Schoener, the Nuremberg astronomer. This great rarity, first published in 1540, contains the actual first announcement of Copernicus?s system and has exercised a profound influence on all succeeding scientific endeavors. Rheticus, a disciple and friend, surveys the principal features of Copernicus? heliocentric universe and describes the new discoveries made by Copernicus ? probably the most important scientific text of the sixteenth century.

        Costantinopoli

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio, 1566-71. 18,5 : 25,7 cm.. Sehr seltene, frühe Ansicht von Konstantinopel (Istanbul) aus Camocios Isole Famose. Zeigt die Stadt aus der Vogelperspektive, ausgeschmückt mit mehreren Schiffen und einer Kompassrose. Camocios Druckvermerk in der unteren rechten Ecke 'Appreßo Gioan Francesco Camocio'. Unterhalb der Abbildung eine Legende zu den wichtigen Gebäuden, Kirchen und Orten von a-z, aa-zz und aaa-nnn. Dieses Blatt wurde vom ersten Zustand der Platte gedruckt, ohne die Zahl in der unteren rechten Ecke und ist äußerst selten auf dem Markt zu finden. Zu den begehrtesten kartographischen Arbeiten zählen die Italienischen Atlanten des 16. Jahrhunderts. Neben den sogenannten Lafreri Atlanten, einer individuellen Zusammenstellung von Karten verschiedener Größen, entstanden bei den Venezianischen Verlegern Camocio und Bertelli auch einige Atlanten mit Karten von einheitlicher Größe und Machart. Einer der wichtigsten dieser Atlanten, ist der erstmals 1566 von Camocio herausgegebene Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime, eine Zusammenstellung von Karten der Gebiete, welche unter Einfluss der Venezianer standen. Dargestellt wird die Situation während der Belagerung Wiens 1566, sowie die Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Venezianern und Türken im Mittelmeer während der Jahre 1570-1573. Beinhaltet sind vornehmlich Karten der Mittelmeer Küsten, die wichtigsten Inseln, sowie Stadtansichten. Der Atlas wurde zwischen 1566 und 1574 von Camocio ohne Titel herausgegeben, ab 1575 erschien die Kartensammlung, gedruckt von den original Platten, bei Donato Bertelli. - Mit Rändern, selten, da Blätter aus Camocios Isole Famose zumeist am oder in den Plattenrand beschnitten sind. Zwei kleine Wurmlöcher hinterlegt. Etwas fleckig. Guter, kräftiger Abdruck. - A very rare, early view of Constantinople (Istanbul) from Camocio's Isole Famose. Showing the city from above, decorated with several ships and a compass rose. Camocio's imprint in the lower right corner 'Appreßo Gioan Francesco Camocio'. Below a key from a-z, aa-zz and aaa-nnn, naming important buildings, churches and places. This copy is printed from the first state of the plate, without the number in the lower right corner and is extremely rare to find on the market. The Italian atlases of the 16th Century are among the much sought after cartographic rarities. Besides the so-called Lafreri atlases, a compilation of individual maps of various sizes, the Venetian publishers Camocio and Bertelli issued a few atlases with maps of uniform size and style. Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime is one of the most important of these atlases, issued first by Camocio in 1566 It comprises a collection of maps of the areas under the influence of the Venetians. Shown is the situation during the siege of Vienna in 1566, and the battle between the Venetians and Turks in the Mediterranean during the years 1570-1573. Mainly included are maps of the Mediterranean coasts, the main islands, and city views. The atlas was published between 1566 and 1574 by Camocio without a title, after 1575 it was issued by Donato Bertelli with a printed title, also printed from the original plates. - With margin, which is rare, since sheets from Camocio's Isole Famose often cut along or within plate marks. Two tiny worm holes backed. Some small tears in margin backed. Some staining. A good and strong impression.

        La Historia dell'impresa di Tripoli di Barberia, fatta per ordine del Sereniss. Re Catolico, l'anno M.D.LX. Con le cose avenute a Christiani nell'Isola delle Zerbe. Nuovamente mandata in luce.

      Venice ("Venevia"), Francesco Rampazetto, 1566.. 4to. (7) ff., 1 blank f., 88, (4) ff. With woodcut printer's device to title page. 19th century vellum with giltstamped red spine labels.. First dated publication of Ulloa's account of the siege of Tripolis in Italian. Includes the three-page dedication to Johann Jakob Fugger - the only place in the book where Ulloa's name appears. The author, a courtier of King Philip II, celebrates the defense of St Angelo's fortress on Malta, modern Libya. - In the 1551 Siege of Tripoli, the Ottoman fleet vanquished the Knights of Malta in Tripoli: the city was captured on 15 August by Sinan Pasha after six days of bombardment. The Knights, many of them French, were returned to Malta upon the intervention of the French ambassador, and shipped onboard his galleys, while the mercenaries were enslaved. Murad Agha, the Ottoman commander of Tajura since 1536, was named as the Pashalik of the city. The siege was the first step of the all-out Italian War of 1551-59 in the European theater. In 1553, Dragut was nominated commander of Tripoli by Suleiman, making the city a centre for piratical raids in the Mediterranean and the capital of the Ottoman province of Tripolitania. In a famous attack from Tripoli, in 1558, Dragut attacked Reggio, and took all its inhabitants as slaves to Tripoli. In 1560, a powerful naval force was sent to recapture Tripoli, but that force was defeated in the Battle of Djerba, an event also described in Ulloa's book. The end of the volume is brought up by an interesting four-page account of Malta ("Descrittione dell'Isola di Malta") and a list of the names of Christian knights who died in the siege. - Occasional slight browning and brownstaining (more prononced on t. p.); a few pages near end show insignificant edge flaws. Early 19th century ms. bibliographical note on flyleaf. A good copy. - Edit 16, CNCE 37528. BM-STC Italian 704. Gay 1494. Palau 343.401. Göllner 1134. Graesse VI, 224. Olschki L II, 222. Cf.

Il Sigonio (Modena, 1520ca.-Ponte Basso, 1584), dopo essere stato al servizio del cardinale Grimani, succedette a Modena nell'insegnamento del greco a Francesco Porto e, in seguito, svolse l'insegnamento delle lingue e delle lettere classiche a Venezia, Padova, Bologna. Erudito di altissimo livello, fu uno dei maggiori precursori del Muratori nello studio delle fonti storiche del Medioevo, soprattutto nel "De Regno Italiae", la cui cronaca va dal 570 al 1268. Numerosissime e significative anche le sue opere di storia locale e di storia romana e di filologia classica, di cui l'edizione di Livio e il suo relativo commento restano uno dei frutti più significativi.

This work continues uniformly the author's Seconda Parte of 1565, itself a continuation of the Prima Parte of 1560 which is another text, by Pedro de Cieza de Len. Lpez de Gmara is the first record of Cortz's expeditions to the Pacific coast, the Ulloa voyages along the coast of upper California, the preliminary journey to Cibola of Fray Marcos de Niza, and the expedition to the fabled Seven Cities by Francisco Vzquez de Coronado. The second book, and a basic source, for the Southwest of the United States -- Texas, New Mexico, Arizona. 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). Despite the defects noted, this is an attractive copy of an important work, one of 'the two pillars on which the story of the Conquest mainly rests' (Prescott). Wagner (SW) 2Y; Alden 566/23.

        NEWE VOLKOMMENE CHRONICA PHILIPPI MELANTHONIS

      Frankfurt am Mayn: Martin Lechler Sigmund Feyerabend, 1566. Hardcover. 340 x 219 mm (13 3/8 x 8 5/8"). [12], CX, [4], CXIII, [12], CLXXXVIII, [8] leaves. CONTEMPORARY BLINDSTAMPED GERMAN PIGSKIN CHAINED BINDING, original boards with large heraldic device at the center enclosed by multiple rolls (on the front, a pineapple roll and two rolls with heads and foliage; on the back, three rolls, one each with pineapples, heads-among-foliage, and captioned panels showing Lucretia, Suavitas, Prudentia, and Justicia), eight brass corner bosses, brass clasps and catches with pigskin thongs (all the hardware original and delicately tooled), early inked titling on fore edge, ORIGINAL NINE-LINK IRON CHAIN FASTENED TO EYELET IN BACK COVER, WITH IRON FASTENING RING AT THE END. VD16 ZV 10777. Pigskin with minor worming, soiling, and rubbing (though blind decoration still readily apparent), front hinge partly cracked and expertly silked (no weakness), a very few tiny round wormholes at beginning and end, the usual browning to paper characteristic of the time and place (never unsightly), a small wax stain and other trivial defects, but still AN EXCELLENT SPECIMEN, the text smooth and mostly quite clean, and the binding solid and pleasing, with THE CHAIN IN OUTSTANDING CONDITION. This is a rare example of a perfectly preserved Renaissance chained binding, complete with chain and iron ring, covering the standard Protestant history of the world from creation to the mid-16th century. To protect against theft or damage, early ecclesiastical and scholastic libraries chained their most valuable books to a horizontal iron bar running along the desk where the volume would be used. An iron eyelet was set in the lower cover of the book, and a chain attached to this, ending in an iron ring, by which the book was fastened to the bar. This practice was common in the Middle Ages, when books were irreplaceable manuscripts, but fell out of use over the course of the 16th century, after which chained bindings became rare. Those which appear on the market today occasionally preserve the iron eyelet, but usually retain nothing but a rusty hole where the eyelet once was. One seldom sees an example like the present item, with eyelet, chain, and ring all present, and if such a volume does appear, it often covers a book of little interest, rather than something like the present substantial historical work of persisting interest. German astrologer Johann Carion (1499-1537) first published his "Chronicles" in 1532, and it went through at least 15 German editions by 1564. Lutheran theologian Philipp Melanchthon (1497-1560) prepared a Latin revision in 1537; our volume is a German translation of that work, updated through the year 1565 by Lutheran scholar Kaspar Peucer, Melanchthon's son-in-law.

        De la bonte et mauvaistie des femmes.

      Paris, Iean Dallier, 1566. 8vo. In contemporary full limp vellum with remains of ties to front and back boards. Handwritten title to spine. Previous owner's name to top of title page, dated 1580, 20th May. Binding a bit discoloured. Light dampstain to top of last 15 leaves. Otherwise a fine copy. 76, (1), pp.. Exceedingly scarce second edition of Marconville's famous work in which he praises women and ascribes many of humankind's great invention to them. The work constitute an important contribution to the understanding of the Renaissance debate on women and renaissance man's view on women in general. Marconville is due to his nuanced, and at the time controversial, view on women considered one of the major forerunners of feminism. Marconville's work has a prominent place in La Querelle des Femmes - the long continuous literary battle between authors who attacked women and those who defended them - and is together with Jacques Olivier's Alphabet de l'imperfection regarded as being the most important contribution to this debate in the 16th century. Marconville published several treatises on the subject of women and marriage the present, however, being his most famous and rare. A total of eight editions was published; the first (1562) and second (the present) being of the utmost scarcity.Marconville argues that love cannot be perfect where there is inequality: ''and in all friendship there is inequality except in that which is gained in marriage. This condition of parity means that a husband must govern a wife sweetly and in the process of gratifying her. He must never use physical violence against her. [...] Like Italian humanists of the previous century, Marconville sees that marriage, the exchange of women between men, functions to stabilize social order: by means of the wife the disputes, dissensions to controversies that could have arisen because some men desired natural beauty do not occur; If wives were of uncertain status, other men, wishing to enjoy themselves, would accordingly abandon themselves to pleasure. A woman who clearly belongs to a man does not jeopardize the peace unless, as Marconville then notes, she herself has economic power and enters the marketplace. He specifically warns against the disruption caused by a rich wife: But if it happens that a man marries a rich and ambitious wife, she will want to govern him and take the position of lady and mistress, and he will always be a scorned husband and will have to struggle to keep her in subjection. (Jordan, Renaissance Feminism, p. 188).Jean de Marconville's paradox On the Goodness and Badness of Women, 1564, devotes a whole chapter to the 'Excellence of women and their ingenious inventions'. He starts out by praising life in a community, the invention of letters, the creation of law and the invention of the clock. He isolates the invention of letters as the most important one because it allowed the preservation of ideas: things that happened a thousand years ago are present to us'. He asks: but who was the inventor of such great benefit to humankind? Was it the philosophers and wise men of times past?'. Marconville singles out Carmenta, also known as Nicostraté, as the inventor of letters and writing. Ceres receives credit for the invention of law and 'without [law] no household, no cities, republics or communities nor the world itself' could exists at all. Isis invented agriculture, Pallas invented spinning and making clot. Marconville ponders the 'singularité' excellence or peerlessness, of 'their great minds' and claim that 'celestial favours' were more 'excellently granted' to women than to men. (Warner, The Ideas of Man and Woman in Renaissance France).Several are afraid to put themselves into the ties of marriage out of fear to encounter a bad woman, because usually women are more difficult and more aggravating than men, and even so disorderly and dissolute that they have not contented themselves with violating the honour of marriage, but there are many who have killed, murdered or poisoned their husbands. Nevertheless, the fault of this is not so much due to the malignity of women, but to the imprudence and stupidity of men (From the present work, p. 41).Brunet III, p. 1407.Not in Adams (Adams having the 3rd edition from 1671)

Slight occasional browning, else fine. Illustrated with woodcut initials for each chapter, and wood engraved border and coat of arms on title page. Later edition, first was in 1516. With the bookplate of noted book collector Mary Macmillin Norton. Fernando III of Castile (1199 - 1252) and his mother, Berenguela of Castile, had returned to the court of her father when the Pope annulled her marriage in 1204 due to consanguinity. Upon the death of her father she surrendered the throne to her son, Ferdinand, and acted as regent initially. When Alfonso, his father, died in 1230 Ferdinand also inherited Leon. He then completed the work of his maternal grandfather Alfonso VIII and consolidated the Reconquista of Spain, and in 1231 also permanently united Castile and Leon. Throughout most of his life he fought the Moors, and used both diplomacy and war. He expanded Castilian power and conquered Cordoba in 1236 and Seville in 1248. He founded the current cathedral of Burgos and was a patron of the University of Salamanca. He was a patron of the friars in the Church and himself joined the Third Order of St. Francis. He was canonized in 1671 by Pope Clement X and in known in Spain as San Fernando Rey.The first twenty-eight chapters were written by Don Rodrigo, Archbishop of Toledo, and end with the year 1244. The name of the person who continued the story does not appear. The whole work was edited and modernised in spelling by Diego Lopez de Cartagena whose name ought to have appeared at the head of the prologue instead of that of the Archbishop.

        DE REVOLUTIONIBUS ORBIUM COELESTIUM, Libri VI

      Basile: Ex Officina Henricpetrina, 1566. RARE second issuance of Copernicus’ seminal work. A reprint of the first and the first edition printed in Western Europe after its transport from the east by Rheticus. This is the first printing of the work to include Rheticus’s “Narratio prima” (1540), which actually contained the first announcement of the Copernican hypothesis, preceding Copernicus’s own text. A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE, NOW ATTRIBUTED TO MAGINI. Also a very large copy, the largest copy on the market in many years according to the Gingerich Census. Folio, antique Italian vellum over boards. A very fine and handsome copy, unsophisticated, unpressed and unwashed, the binding original and in unusually pleasing condition, internally, a copy still very well preserved, interesting censor’s marks in a few places. A remarkable survival. RARE EARLY ISSUANCE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST OF ALL SCIENTIFIC TEXTS, THE CORNERSTONE OF MODERN ASTRONOMY, A DIRECT REPRINT OF THE FIRST EDITION, THE FIRST EDITION TO BE PRINTED IN WESTERN EUROPE AND A COPY WITH FINE PROVENANCE, PRESENTLY ATTRIBUTED TO GIOVANNI ANTONIO BATTISTA MAGINI, and also Pio Giovannini, the Italian Inquisitor of Bologna, with annotations and corrections in both Magini and Pio Giovannini’s hands. “The publication of 'On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres' in 1543 was a landmark in human thought. It challenged the authority of antiquity and set the course for the modern world by its effective destruction of the anthropocentric view of the universe. We owe this book, which was more or less completed as early as 1530, to Georg Joachim Rheticus of Wittenberg, who persuaded Copernicus to allow him to publish it; for until 1540 the author himself had permitted only preliminary statements to circulate in manuscript. He died on the eve of its publication. Nicolaus Copernicus studied at Cracow, Bologna and Padua. Returning to his native Poland he eventually became Canon of the cathedral at Frauenberg, where he lived quietly until his death. He was a physician—having studied medicine at Padua—diplomat, economist, Doctor of Canon Law, and artist, a self-portrait survives. Renaissance mathematicians, following Ptolemy, believed that the moon, sun and five planets were carried by complex systems of epicycles and deferents about the central earth, the fixed pivot of the whole system. In Copernicus's day it was well known that conventional astronomy did not work accurately, nor did further study of Ptolemy seem to put the matter right. Copernicus, stimulated by the free entertainment of various new ideas among the ancients, determined to abandon the fixity of the earth, and all the complexities in the treatment of the motions of the celestial bodies that follow from such a conception. With the sun placed at the center, and the earth daily spinning on its axis and circling the sun in common with other planets, the whole system of the heavens became clear, simple, and harmonious. The revolutionary nature of his theory is evident in his famous diagram illustrating the concentric orbits of the planets. Moreover, the new system worked mathematically as well as the Ptolamaic though not, indeed, much better. Like Ptolemy, Copernicus believed that the heavenly motions must be perfect, uniform and circular; he still employed epicycles. It was Tycho Brahe who finally destroyed the heavenly spheres, and Kepler who destroyed the myth of the circle. In the first book of the De Revolutionibus Copernicus explains how the daily rising and setting of the heavenly bodies is a consequence of the daily diurnal rotation of the earth on its polar axis. The course taken by the sun through the zodiacal constellations and the phenomena of the seasons are shown to be due to the annual revolution of the earth about the sun. Book 2 contains the mathematics of astronomy and a star catalogue based on Ptolemy; Books 3 - 6 treat of the particular motions of the earth, moon and planets. The relative distances between the earth and the planets are now determined.” -PMM This copy with FINE PROVENANCE, NOW ATTRIBUTED TO MAGINI. Giovanni Antonio Magini was an Italian astronomer, astrologer, cartographer, and mathematician.. Magini supported a geocentric system of the world, in preference to Copernicus's heliocentric system. Magini devised his own planetary theory, in preference to other existing ones. The Maginian System consisted of eleven rotating spheres, which he described in his Novæ cœlestium orbium theoricæ congruentes cum observationibus N. Copernici (published 1589). He corresponded with Tycho Brahe, Clavius, Abraham Ortelius, and Johann Kepler. The lunar crater Maginus is named after him. In 1588 he was chosen over Galileo Galilei to occupy the chair of mathematics at the University of Bologna after the death of Egnatio Danti. OF THE ANNOTATIONS AND CORRECTIONS IN THIS COPY: The book is annotated in two hands: one, unsigned, by the Italian scientist Magini, with corrections and annotations mostly in the geometrical part; the second hand is by the Italian Inquisitor, Pio Giovannini from Bologna, who signs and dates himself 1630.

Leaf 101 v: Slip of paper "Corrigendus fir (ulterioris) errore impressoris, ut legamus 12 revolutiones g. 129. 37'. 21". 28". 29"30 (a further mistake of the printer must be corrected, so we must read 12 revolutions. . . . ) and quando pasted onto a word of text.

Leaf 122: a letter and a word cancelled in pen (the latter with corrosion of the paper). Leaf 174 r: a number 43 pasted in. This is the end of Magini's corrections. Additionally, on Leaf 213 v there is a two line poem in Giovannini's hand: "Ad Nicolaum Copendcum: Stare negas terram, narras miracula nobis Haec dual scribebas in rate forsan eras. "Thou th'earth denyst to stand: prodigious note, Thus writing, Thou perhaps wert in a boat." The couplet, given here anonymously, is by the Welsh poet John Owen and addressed by him not to Copernicus but to his contemporary [William] Gilbert, who accepted the rotation of the earth on its axis. We have been unable to consult the text of Clavius to which Magini refers, possibly: Clavius,Christophorus. (1537-1612). Geometria pratica,Rome,1604. Magini's self quotation must be to: "Ephemerides coelestium motuum ab anno 1581 ad 1620 secundum Copemici hypotheses", Venezia, 1583. Magini was not an anti-Copernican. As a matter of fact he had a great admiration for Copernicus, calling his work "Divinum opus". Neither was he a pro-Jesuit, having written a pamphlet against them: he was simply a diplomatic character who was trying to keep peace with everybody, so he devised a system which accepted all of the current opinions. He was regarded as the best mathematician of his time, and his calculation of the meridians were used by Gilbert, Snellius and Riccioli. He had one daughter and three sons, the youngest of them, Francesco, was 14 when Magini died, and entered the Dominican Order in Bologna in 1618, with his father's name, Giovanni Antonio. He was probably the recipient of his father's books, including the Copernicus, which later could have passed into the possession of Giovannini, the Dominican inquisitor from Bologna. The extreme caution which Magini shows the astronomical part of the book (books 4, 5, 6), in which the few corrections are only of technical nature, leads one to think that he refrained from annotating the book out of fear of the Inquisition, which implies (if this theory is correct) the notes must be posterior to 1610-1612, when the religious issue on the Copernican theory was arising. But the book is a puzzle in itself: The annotations are definitely in Magini's hand, because he refers to his own books, but did not write directly on the book, which could mean that either the book did not belong to him, and he annotated somebody else's copy, or that he did that out of fear of the Inquisition. His calligraphic annotations are in a very elegant calligraphy, which could support the theory that he corrected the book for someone else. Further Provenance: 1.
