      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)

        Chronica del sancto Rey don Fernando tercero deste nombre; que ganoa a Sevilla y a toda el Andaluzia: Luyo cuerpo esta en la sancta yglesia de Sevilla

      Medina del Campo: impressa Por Francisco del Canto, 1566., Medina del Campo - A8 - C8, D11. 36 ff. double columns, Folio. rebound in full maroon calf, tooled, gilt lettered spine label. . 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.

      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 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.

Third Edition, Considerably Enlarged, the first to be illustrated by Jost Amman. One of the major sources for the history of the medieval tournament, from the first, which Rüxner incorrectly claims was held at Magdeburg about 990 by the Emperor Henry I, known as Henry the Fowler, to the last, held at Worms in 1487. It is now generally acknowledged that the tournament, properly so called, did not appear in Europe before the 11th century. The first and second editions were both printed at Simmern, in 1530 and 1532. Two additional sections have been added to this third edition, the first giving an account of the tournaments, processions and other amusements which took place at Vienna from May 2 to June 24 in the 1560’s, with the names of the participants, and the second providing an account of festivities connected with the entry of Charles V and his sons into Bintz on August 22, 1549. The woodcuts were redrawn and recut for this edition mainly by Jost Amman. Included are depictions of tournaments, awards ceremonies, dancing, banqueting and other festivities. The almost three hundred large and small woodcut coats of arms are those of the victors at the tournaments and those of the towns where they were held. Forty-five of these were newly added in this edition, including the arms of the archdukes Ferdinand and Charles. The two large folding woodcuts of a tournament are the same except for the printed headlines and signature marks. Adams R877. BM STC German p. 760. Brunet IV 1471.

(*8 {*7-*8 blank}, b-c8, d10, A-Z8, Aa-Zz8, Aaa-Ddd8, Eee2). Title continues: Nelloqvale Particolarmente si tratta dello scoprimento della Prouincia di Incatan detta Nuoua Spagna, & delle cose degne di memoria, fatte da Spagnuoli nella conquista della grande, & marauigliosa Citt di Messico, & delle altre Prouincie ad essa sottoposte. Nuovamente Tradotta di Lingua Spagnuola, da Lucio Mauro. Bound in contemporary vellum. First line of title-page (La Terza Parte) recently snipped off, as though an owner had been frustrated or confused by the implication of "La Terza Parte"; small hole in leaf 254 affects 3 words; worming in upper margin of leaves 329-360 affects two words of the inner margin on leaves 329-351; worming on leaves 362-364 affects first line of text on leaf 362. Armorial bookplate of Marius Marefuschus; small red library sticker of the American College in Rome. 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.

        La Nuova et esatta Descrittione della Soria e della Terra Santa

      Acquaforte e bulino, 1566, firmata e datata in lastra nel cartiglio. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?sirena nel cerchio con stella?, con margini, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Carta geografica della Terra Santa e dell?isola di Cipro, incisa e pubblicata da Paolo Forlani. La fonte cartografica di questa mappa è sicuramente la tavola di Martin Waldseemuller del 1513, con tutte le sue derivazioni successive nelle varie edizioni della Geographia di Tolomeo. Nel 1561, a Venezia, Giordano Ziletti pubblica la sua Geographia, con il commento del Ruscelli e le mappe incise da Giulio Sanuto. La carta del Forlani è un aggiornamento ed ingrandimento di quest?ultima, rispetto alla quale vengono aggiunti anche due importanti elementi decorativi quali il cartiglio con il titolo e la rosa dei venti, nel mare. L?aspetto veramente insolito di questo lavoro è costituito dal fatto che esiste una variante della mappa, pressoché identica per dimensioni ed aspetto, incisa utilizzando una lastra differente e nello stesso anno sempre da Paolo Forlani, 1566. L?unica differenza, a prima vista, è che il nostro esemplare reca la data in numeri romani, mentre l?altra in numeri arabi. Un?analisi più approfondita rileva che, invece il rame è invece diverso e che ci sono differenze anche nei toponimi, seppur minime. David Woodward, il maggiore studioso del Forlani, le assegna entrambe al veronese; non è tuttavia dato di sapere quale sia stata edita prima né il misterioso motivo che abbia indotto il Forlani ad incidere due lastre. La presenza di un secondo stato dell?altra lastra, successivamente edito da Donato Bertelli, mi lascia supporre che il nostro esemplare sia la prima lastra del Forlani, poi andata distrutta per qualche motivo, inducendo l?editore ad incidere nuovamente il soggetto. Magnifico esemplare di questa rarissima mappa. "Etching with engraving, 1566, signed and dated on the plate in the cartouche. A magnific example, printed with rich tone on contemporary laid paper with watermark ""mermaid in a circle with a star"", with margins, in excellent conditions.Map of the island of Cyprus and the Holy Land, engraved and published by Paolo Forlani. The source of this cartographic map is definitely the board of Martin Waldseemuller of 1513, with all its branches in various successive editions of Ptolemy's Geographia. In 1561, in Venice, Giordano Ziletti published his Geographia, with commentary by Ruscelli and maps engraved by Giulio Sanuto. The mape is an update of Forlani and enlargement of the latter, with respect to which are added two important elements such as decorative cartouche with the title and the wind rose, the sea. The most unusual aspect of this work is the fact that there is a variant of the map, nearly identical in size and appearance, using a slab engraved different and always in the same year by Paolo Forlani, 1566. The only difference, at first sight, is that our copy is dated in Roman numerals, and the other in Arabic numerals. A more in-depth notes that, instead of the copper is quite different and that there are also differences in the names, albeit minimal. David Woodward, the greatest scholar of Forlani, assigns both the Veronese is not impossible to assess what has been published before nor the mysterious reason that has led to record two plates Forlani. The presence of a second state of the other sheet, then edited by Donato Bertelli, let me assume that our specimen is the first slab of Forlani, then destroyed for some reason, prompting the publisher to affect the subject again. Magnificent specimen of this rare map" Venezia Venice Woodward, Forlani, 56; Tooley, Italian Atlases, 436; Meurer, The Strabo Illustrated Atlas, p. 123. Laor, Holy Land, 864. Dimensioni 345x270.

        Opera per doctissimum Philosophum Ioannem Baptistam Memum patritium Venetum, mathematicharumque artium in urbe Veneta lectorum publicum. De Graeco in Latinum Traducta & Noviter impressa.Venice: Bernardinus Bindonus, 1537. First edition.

      Very rare editio princeps of Apollonius' Conics, the basic treatise on the subject, "which recognized and named the ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola" (Horblit 4, on the later edition of 1566). This is one of the three greatest mathematical treatises of antiquity, alongside those of Euclid and Archimedes. This first edition is very rare, preceding by 29 years the Commandino edition of the same four books canonized by Horblit (and taken over by Dibner and Norman), and this first edition is known to have been used by Tartaglia, Benedetti and, however critically, Maurolico (see Rose). Books I-IV were the only ones to survive in the original Greek; Borelli discovered Arabic versions of books V-VII and published them, in Latin translation, in 1661. "Apollonius (ca. 245-190 BC) was the last of the great Greek mathematicians, whose treatise on conic sections represents the final flowering of Greek mathematics" (Hutchinson's DSB, p. 16).<br/><br/> Apollonius synthesized the work of his predecessors as well as contributing new methods and techniques of his own. "For a modern reader, the Conics is among the most difficult mathematical works of antiquity. Both form and content are far from tractable. The author's rigorous rhetorical exposition is wearing for those used to modern symbolism... Apollonius has, in a way, suffered from his own success: his treatise became canonical and eliminated its predecessors, so that we cannot judge by direct comparison its superiority to them in mathematical rigor, consistency and generality. But the work amply repays closer study; and the attention paid to it by some of the most eminent mathematicians of the seventeenth century (one need only mention Fermat, Newton and Halley) reinforces the verdict of Apollonius' contemporaries, who, according to Geminus, in admiration for his Conics gave him the title of The Great Geometer... <br/><br/> "The first real impulse towards advances in mathematics given by the study of the works of Apollonius occurred in Europe in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries... It is hard to underestimate the effect of Apollonius on the brilliant French mathematicians of the seventeenth century, Descartes, Mersenne, Fermat, and even Desargues and Pascal, despite their very different approach. Newton's notorious predilection for the study of conics, using Apollonian methods, was not a chance personal taste... It was not until Poncelet's work in the early nineteenth century... revived the study of projective geometry that the relevance of much of Apollonius' work to some basic modern theory was realized... <br/><br/> "Hipparchus and Ptolemy absorbed his work and improved on it. The result, the Ptolemaic system, is one of the most impressive monuments of ancient science (and certainly the longest-lived), and Apollonius' work contributed some of its essential parts" (DSB I 97-99). <br/><br/> The text was passed down by Eutocius, a Byzantine mathematician of the Justinian period, and translated from the Greek by Giovanni Battista Memo (1466-1536), Public Professor of Mathematics at Venice. A patrician who held a number of important government posts, he was instrumental in establishing the mathematical chair of which he became the first occupant in 1530. This is his principal work, published just a year after his death by his nephew. The Greek manuscript he employed is unknown, though Rose suggests it might have been the one which once belonged to the family of the present work's dedicatee, Cardinal Marino Grimani. Rose groups Memo with the successors of Valla, Zamberti and Gaurico, who applied the new philology to Greek scientific treatises, especially mathematics. <br/><br/> Only five copies located in America (Harvard, Louisville, MIT, UNC, Yale).

        La rissa dei popolani.

      XVII secolo. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte e bulino, cm 35 x 50 circa (alla lastra) pi? margini. "F. Villamena inv." ? riportato in basso a sinistra, in lastra. Francesco Villamena (Assisi, verso il 1566 - Roma, 1624), disegnatore, pittore e incisore al bulino, oper? a Roma nel primo quarto del XVII secolo. Secondo la tradizione, fu allievo di Cornelius Cort, ne copi? le incisioni, e lavor?, in et? giovanile, con Agostino Carracci. Realizz? poche incisioni come sue proprie originali, e riprodusse invece i disegni di molti artisti, tra cui Raffaello, Paolo Veronese, Federico Barocci, Girolamo Muziano e Giulio Veronese. Il "caravaggesco" Villamena illustra qui un episodio di ordine pubblico realmente accaduto nel 1601: lo scoppio di una lite, frequentissime in quel periodo a Roma, e l'intervento di un capopopolo per fermarla. Realizzata alla riconoscibile maniera dell'incisore, l'incisione ? caratterizzata da grandi tratteggi che molto lasciano alle parti bianche del chiaroscuro.
