1566. Tadellos erhaltenes, sauberes Exemplar der ersten lateinischen Ausgabe mit den Holzschnitten von Jost Amman. Die Entwürfe dieser Holzschnitte gehen auf die "Biblischen Figuren" von Johann Bocksperger aus dem Jahr 1564 zurück. Jedoch hat Jost Amman in dieser Bibelausgabe auch eigene Illustrationen geliefert, die er teils auch selbst geschnitten hat. Die Bibel mit den Bildern von Bocksperger und Amman hat große Verbreitung gefunden. Die Auffassung der Propheten blieb bestehen, wie Luther sie geschaffen hatte. Die tiefe Verbundenheit des Künstlers mit dem Text offenbart sich besonders im Alten Testament auf Schritt und Tritt. Es ist ein echtes Suchen nach konkreter Vorstellung der heiligen Geschichte, die turmhoch über dem hohlen Pathos der späteren Bibelillustationen steht. - Becker, Amman S. 10. - Hollstein, I, S. 37.

Bon exemplaire malgré tout. 1 tableau h.-t. replié, (36) ff., 306 ff., 29 ff., (20) ff., (1) f. blanc. Signatures : *4 [A-D]6 E8 [a-z]6 [Aa-Ee]6 [aa-dd]6 ee8 [ff-hh]6. Rousseurs éparses, qq. mouillures angulaires. Exemplaire frais dans l'ensemble. Belle édition, augmentée de la traduction de l'abrégé des chroniques de Froissart et des deux remontrances qui ne figuraient pas dans la première édition in-folio de 1563. La plus grande partie du volume est bien entendu occupée par l'oeuvre majeure de Sleidan, les XXVI livres des histoires de la religion. La traduction française de Robert Le Prévost est considérée comme meilleure que celles qui furent faites après. C'est l'une des meilleurs sources pour l'histoire de la Réforme, car Sleidan a complété ses propres souvenirs des informations fournies par des témoins oculaires et par les archives de plusieurs villes.

Impresa tipogr. sul frontesp. di entrambe le parti (ove l'indicazione "prima" e "seconda" è ritoccata a penna); grandi e belle iniz. silogr. istoriate, testo in car. corsivo, note a stampa nel margine. Le due parti sono rispettivamente dedicate ad Emanuele Filiberto Duca di Savoia e ad Alfonso d'Este Duca di Ferrara; alle dediche seguono un proemio ed un'introduzione nella prima parte ed i "Tre Dialoghi della vita civile" nelle prime 137 pagine della seconda. Seconda edizione, da tutti i critici considerata molto più corretta della prima (apparsa l'anno precedente a Mondovì, presso Leonardo Torrentino) di questa raccolta di novelle, che ricalca vagamente la struttura del Decamerone. Le novelle sono distribuite in dieci "deche", ciascuna preceduta da una dedica a vari personaggi, molti dei quali piemontesi. Una brigata di novellatori e novellatrici, che fuggono per mezzo di una nave da Roma a Marsiglia, a causa del sacco delle soldatesche di Carlo V, per distrarsi passano il tempo narrando vari racconti. Com'è noto, si tratta di un'importantissima fonte per il teatro di Shakespeare: due di queste novelle ispirarono le trame di "Otello", di "Misura per Misura", e della "Notte dell'Epifania". Benché considerata per lungo tempo un esempio di letteratura controriformista, l'opera fu messa all'Indice nel 1580 ed è recente la sua rivalutazione critica per l'originalità nell'ambito dei canoni novellistici cinquecenteschi.

Half Calf emerald second half of the nineteenth, smooth small irons and rollers back. Red part of title. Very fresh copy. Restoration of the joints. The book begins with an apology for the story of Herodotus Henri Estienne (from the 3rd generation of Estienne, illustrious family famous for its Greek and Latin editions publishers), which he wrote in response to some ecclesiastical authorities who criticized the story of Herodotus. The translation is the work of the Italian humanist Lorenzo Valla (1406-1457), Latinist and Hellenist recognized, he began the translation in 1450. Life of Homer is itself the work of a German humanist Conrad Heresbach . One who has been called the father of history interested in the Persian Wars and Egypt, but more remarkable for us is its contemporary method that earned him his nickname, he wrote nothing before visiting places where history had been conducted. His books are so rich a wealth of observations from the field. And thanks to him we know the manners and habits of the Egyptians. Less known that befriended Sophocles who wrote him a poem.

Contemporary blind stamped calf, back with five raised bands, back panel with three small repairs (at the place of the clasps and part of the joint), clasps missing, old entries of ownership on the front fly-leaf, a few contemporary marginal annotations and underlining, otherwise a superb and genuine copy.RARE FIRST GERMAN EDITION. This evaluation and rebuttal of the decrees of the Council of Trent was originally published in Latin in four volumes between 1566 and 1573. The work had ten more editions until the end of the century, and numerous reprints later, the last, dating from 1861 (Berlin). The work had greater impact, greater readership, and brought Chemnitz greater fame than anything else he produced in his life."The preparation of the Examen absorbed Chemnitz' leisure for the next nine years. By the end of March 1565 he had worked out the first part sufficiently to send it to a colleague in Frankfurt/M., Martin Ritter, with the request to find a publisher. On Christmas Eve of that year Chemnitz was still reading proof and finding "manifold and most horrible errors'. The following spring the first part came out, dedicated to Duke Albert Frederick [of Prussia], the youthful son of Duke Albert the Elder. The second part f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cf. Hoskins, Early and rare Polonica in Am. Libr., 87; not in BMC. Original and only edition of two sermons against unbelievers and heretics, in defence of the holy Roman-Catholic church by Fabian Birkowsky (Léopol 1566 - Krakow 1636), a famous Dominican priest, philosopher and professor of Theology in Krakow who had a very extensive influence on religious and spiritual life in Poland. Collections of his important sermons have been printed in successively 1620, 1624, 1628 and - the present collection of sermons - in 1632. Some occasional soiling and a few annotations. Good copy of this very rare Polish book.

SERLIO, Sebastiano (1475-1554). -
Venezia, Senese e Krugher, 1566. In - 4. Legatura del '600 in pergamena, titolo ms. sul dorso. Con 6 frontespizi architettonici, diagrammi e numerose illustrazioni silografiche n.t., moltissime a piena pagina, incise da Giovanni Chrieger (Krugher) e derivate dalle edizioni originali in - folio. 219, (1 bianco), 52 ff.; antica firma di appartenenza sulla prima carta e nel margine inferiore del frontespizio; alcune carte leggermente ingiallite e lievi aloni marginali su poche carte. Prima edizione in quarto della celebre opera dell'architetto bolognese. I vari libri furono originariamente pubblicati in ordine irregolare e in città diverse (Venezia, Parigi, Francoforte) tra il 1537 e il 1575 (settimo libro). Fu il primo trattato di architettura il cui scopo fosse più pratico che teorico, ed il primo a codificare i cinque ordini. Si distingue per il tono pragmatico, per l'intento didattico e per la grande importanza data alle immagini, risultando un passaggio importante ed anticipatore non solo nella storia della trattatistica di architettura, ma anche nella storia della stampa, in generale. Ebbe un notevole successo, testimoniato dalle numerose ristampe e traduzioni in varie lingue (francese, tedesco, inglese, fiammingo). Cicognara 668. Berlin Kat. 2570. Fowler 327. First quarto edition of Serlio's influential and finely illustrated work. "The first genuine advance in architectural illustration seems to have been made by Serlio, and his Libro Terzo set the type of architectural illustration in Italy for the rest of the century" (Fowler 308). With 6 architectural titles, vari … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bologna, Alessandro Benacci, 1566. Due parti in un volume in - folio; 4, 114, 2, 36 cc. con numerosi diagrammi e figure schematiche nel testo. Legatura coeva in tutta pergamena morbida, titolo manoscritto al taglio inferiore. Trascurabili macchie al margine bianco interno delle carte 113 - 115. Buon esemplare genuino Fondamentale edizione delle Coniche di Apollonio, la prima nella traduzione latina del noto matematico Federico Commandino (1509 - 1575). Le edizioni curate dal Commandino di Apollonio, Archimede, Euclide, Erone e altri matematici greci costituirono un significativo contributo allo studio della matematica nella seconda metà del '500. Una prima versione latina a cura di G. Memmo era apparsa a Venezia nel 1537, ma si trattava di un testo inaccurato e inaffidabile. Il volume contiene i primi quattro libri delle Coniche di Apollonio, l'unica sezione ad essere sopravvissuta nell'originale greco: "The work on which Apollonius' modern fame rests, the Conics, was originally in eight books. Books I - IV survive in original Greek, Books V - VII only in Arabic translation. Book VIII is lost, but some idea of its contents can be gained from the lemmas to it given by Pappus" (DSB). "The basic treatise on conic sections. Apollonius recognized and named the ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola" (Horblit) Il volume include anche i lemmi di Pappo, il commentario di Eutocio e due trattati di Sereno (IV sec. d.C.), entrambi stampati qui per la prima volta.
