Ledesma, Bartholomé de: [Mexican Incunable]
Mexico: Antonio de Espinosa, 1566. [4],404,[16] leaves, with several woodcut illustrations and woodcut initials throughout. Small, thick quarto. Contemporary vellum, with yapp edges, remnants of vellum ties at fore-edge. Light wear and soiling to vellum, endpapers renewed. Small marca de fuego on top edge. Moderate wear to initial leaves, moderate worming in lower corner and occasionally along lower margin, all expertly repaired, slightly affecting only a few printed marginalia and catchwords. Light tanning and occasional foxing. A very good copy, overall. A very rare, complete, and substantial example of early Mexican printing. This work was produced and published by Antonio de Espinosa, the second printer in the New World after Juan Pablos, and is one of the most considerable efforts of his career in Mexico. Espinosa was brought to Mexico by Juan Pablos as an assistant and type cutter in 1550, and he eventually broke Pablos' monopoly and began printing for himself in 1559. The present work, printed in 1566, is one of only a handful produced in Mexico during that decade, and is one of the initial books of the Mexican incunable period. The text itself is the first edition of a religious work by Bartholomé de Ledesma explicating church sacraments in great detail, later reprinted in Salamanca in 1585. The work is split into six parts. The first discusses the sacraments generally, and the ensuing five treat individual sacraments in depth. Ledesma was a key figure in the early Mexican church, as a close advisor of the second Archbishop in the New World, Alonso de Mon … [Click Below for Full Description]

Encuadernación plateresca restaurada en piel original sobre madera conservando los planos gofrados. Restauración de la portada con pequeña pérdida en las indicaciones tipográficas. Hoja de registro y colofón laminada. Pequeñas humedades a lo largo de la obra. Segunda edición de este importante tratado del dominico fray Domingo de Soto (1494-1560), una de las figuras más notables de la Escuela de Salamanca. Soto participó en numerosas disputas entre nominalistas y humanistas, siendo una de sus principales preocupaciones la adaptación de conceptos teológicos y jurídicos a la coyuntura que se vivió en la Península tras el descubrimiento de las Indias Occidentales. En 1550, a la zaga de los polémicos debates entre Sepúlveda y fray Bartolomé de las Casas en relación a las prácticas desarrolladas durante la conquista y colonización de las Indias, escribe su De iustitia et iure, cuya primera edición se publicará en 1553. Esta obra, en la que muestra una considerable base humanística y científica, Soto intenta demostrar que ningún ser humano puede estar ligado a ley a la que no haya dado su asentamiento racional. En este sentido, siguiendo el Derecho de ge … [Click Below for Full Description]

FITZHERBERT, Sir Anthony
Richard Tottell, 1566. 8vo. ff. 173 (iii). Black letter. Floriated woodcut initials, contemporary annotations on a few leaves, early autograph on fly of 'Anthony L Laws'?, further early inscriptions below, stubbs from an early mss vellum leaf. Blank lower outer corner of D1 torn, very minor waterstain in upper blank margin in places, the odd marginal thumb mark. A very good, clean copy in entirely unsophisticated contemporary calf, covers bordered with a triple blind rule, small fleuron gilt at centres, spine with raised bands, blind ruled in five compartments, traces of ties, tear from tail of lower compartment, two upper ones holed at head, corners worn. Fitzherbert (1470-1538) of Gray's Inn, justice of the Court of Common Pleas, was one of the most notable legal writers of the C16th, producing many of the most authoritative and enduring English law books for practitioners and students alike. The present work was more or less continuously in print between its first appearance in 1538 and 1794 and his New Natura Brevium enjoyed a similar life. Fitzherbert's knowledge of the law was profound, he had a strong logical faculty and the rarest of legal writers'gifts, the power of clear and lucid exposition. His explanations and directions were comprehensible even to those with the most basic knowledge of the law. That aptitude was especially important in the present work on the powers and duties of the justices of the peace, since the latter were (and are) generally unpaid and part time laymen appointed by special commission under the great seal to keep the peace by enforcing "a … [Click Below for Full Description]

en casa de Joan Mey, Venen se en casa de Sanahuja Librer [Juan Mey], Estampades en Valencia, 1566. First edition. In modern vellum, title lettered in ink on the spine. Woodcut initials. ff. [16]. Collation: a-b8. "The first catechismal work directed expressly at the instruction of the moriscos." (Ehlers, 2006) After the reconquest of Islamic Spain in 1492, the Muslim population stood between 500,000 and 600,000 people, and the Kingdom of Valencia had the second largest Muslim community after Granada. In Valencia, Islam was allowed to be practiced and for some extent, the Islamic legal system was preserved, until the outbreak of the Revolt of the Brotherhoods, an anti-seigneurial uprising of the Christian subjects of the Kingdom. The rebellion bore an anti-Islamic aspect and resulted in the forced conversion of the Muslims. The present book "The Instructions and Ordinances for the Newly Converted of the Kingdom of Valencia" was written as a guide for these large flocks of Valencian Moriscos or New Christians, those formerly Muslims who were coerced into converting to Christianity. The catechism was composed by Jorge de Austria (1504-1557), the archbishop of Valencia, originally written in 1538 in Valenciano, but published only in 1566, in the period of the Tridentine reforms, when missionary and catechization efforts increased throughout Catholic Europe. (Williams, 2017) Les Instructions, as an educational and practical guide, defines the acceptable Christian behaviors and those Muslim practices which were no longer tolerated. It lays down a penalty system, where keeping old … [Click Below for Full Description]

Condition: Acceptable. http://www.nationaltrustcollections.org.uk/object/784781.1 For centuries, the dramatic life of Mary, Queen of Scots, has provided exciting subject matter for painters, writers and composers. Here, this brilliant and fine detailing of the sculpture depicts the assassination of David Rizzio, the queen's Italian secretary, in March 1566. To the left, Mary is being restrained by her husband, Lord Darnley, who was part of the conspiracy but later denied any involvement. Some obvious marks in the frame which adds to the age of this brilliant piece of artwork. There is a crack in the scuplture as you can see in the pics but this shouldnt be looked down upon. It still is a wonderful piece with incredible detail. These have been dated as far back in between 1870-1899. We also have another piece from depicting William Shakespeare appearing before Queen Elizabeth 1 Both items very rare!!! Happy bidding with this fine piece of history.

[SAXO GRAMMATICUS]. SAXONE GRAMMATICO. - [THIRD AND LAST 16TH CENTURY LATIN EDITION]
1566. Frankfurt am Main, And. Wechel, 1576. Folio. Bound in contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards with the two original brass clasps. Hinges with grey coloured repair. Lower part of spine with traces after having been coloured red and blue. A very fine and clean copy. [Saxo:] (8), 342, (24) pp + 1 blank leaf + [Germanicarum Rerum Quatuor... :] (10), 224, (10) ff.]. ¶ Third and last 16th century Latin edition of Saxo's "History of Denmark", edited by Philip Loncier, rector of the Frankfurt Gymnasium.Saxo Grammaticus (ab. 1150-1220) was probably a secular clerk or secretary to Absalon, Archbishop of Lund, the great Danish churchman, statesman and warrior. Saxo is remembered today as the author of the first full history of Denmark, in which he modeled himself on the classical authors (e.g. Virgil, Plato, Cicero) in order to glorify his fatherland. The work dates from the end of the 12th century and was edited by Christiern Pedersen, a Canon of Lund, and printed by Jodocus Badius Ascendius in Paris in 1514 (the editio princeps) with 16th century re-issues following in 1534 (Basel) and 1576 (the present). Only with the first printing of this seminal work did the work become known throughout academic circles. The work soon received international fame and is to this day renowned as not only being immensely important historically, but also being extremely well written (Saxo is praised by Erasmus, for instance, for possessing great power of eloquence). The work consists of sixteen books that cover the time from the founders of the Danish people (Dan I of Denmark) till … [Click Below for Full Description]

Profusely illustrated juvenile lectionary edited by student of Melanchthon and Lutheran theologian Georg Aemilius (a.k.a. Aemylius or Emilius, 1517–69). Decorated with => 78 in-text woodcuts, a scarce few repeated, the Latin text is printed in single columns using an italic font with the occasional shouldernote in Greek and four historiated initials. First published in 1549, this text was extremely popular in its day, with at least nine different editions by 1579, though all editions are now uncommon and this one quite scarce; searches of WorldCat and NUC reveal only one U.S. institution reporting ownership.    Binding: Contemporary goat over thin beechwood boards, inked paper label on spine, raised bands surrounded by triple fillets; covers elaborately stamped with a frame of fillets and a medallion-portrait roll around repeated rows of three floral sprays.    Evidence of Readership: An early reader has underlined and added some marks of emphasis and words in an early hand to seven leaves of text, all excerpts taken from the Gospel of John.    Provenance: Two ownership and one duplicate release rubber-stamps appear on the title-page verso, the first from the Universitätsbibliothek München dated between 1800 and 1826; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A.

Bella marca tipografica di Guillaume Rouillé (1545-1589) al frontespizio di ogni volume. Alcune pagine leggermente ed uniformemente brunite a causa alla qualità della carta, ininfluente. Un leggerissimo alone ininfluente al margine esterno bianco delle ultime 10 carte del secondo volume e nel complesso ambedue le opere si presentano in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Testatine, iniziali e finalini xilografici. Bell’edizioni stampate da Rouillé di queste due celebri opere del grande scrittore, medico e filosofo originario di Riva del Garda, Giulio Cesare Scaligero, latinizzato in Julius Caesar Scaliger (1484-1558). Di origine italiana, trascorse in Francia parte della sua vita, e la parte più fruttuosa della sua carriera. A dispetto del suo atteggiamento arrogante e incline alla polemica, era alta la sua reputazione tra i contemporanei, che lo giudicavano così distinto nel suo sapere e talento, che, secondo Jacques Auguste de Thou, nessuno degli antichi poteva essere collocato sopra di lui, e che l’età in cui visse non presentò nessun sapiente paragonabile a lui. Nelle proprie note biografiche, Scaligero si spaccia per un discendente del casato dei Della Scala (che furono, per 150 anni, i signori di Verona) e si dice nato nell’anno 1484 a Rocca di Riva, sulle rive del Lago di Ga … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ledesma, Bartholomé de: [Mexican Incunable]
Antonio de Espinosa, Mexico, 1566. [4],404,[16] leaves, with several woodcut illustrations and woodcut initials throughout. Small, thick quarto. Contemporary vellum, with yapp edges, remnants of vellum ties at fore-edge. Light wear and soiling to vellum, endpapers renewed. Small marca de fuego on top edge. Moderate wear to initial leaves, moderate worming in lower corner and occasionally along lower margin, all expertly repaired, slightly affecting only a few printed marginalia and catchwords. Light tanning and occasional foxing. A very good copy, overall. A very rare, complete, and substantial example of early Mexican printing. This work was produced and published by Antonio de Espinosa, the second printer in the New World after Juan Pablos, and is one of the most considerable efforts of his career in Mexico. Espinosa was brought to Mexico by Juan Pablos as an assistant and type cutter in 1550, and he eventually broke Pablos' monopoly and began printing for himself in 1559. The present work, printed in 1566, is one of only a handful produced in Mexico during that decade, and is one of the initial books of the Mexican incunable period. The text itself is the first edition of a religious work by Bartholomé de Ledesma explicating church sacraments in great detail, later reprinted in Salamanca in 1585. The work is split into six parts. The first discusses the sacraments generally, and the ensuing five treat individual sacraments in depth. Ledesma was a key figure in the early Mexican church, as a close advisor of the second Archbishop in the New World, Alonso de Montúfar, and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ulloa, Alfonso de).
Venice ("Venevia"), Francesco Rampazetto, 1566. 4to. (7) ff., 1 blank f., (4) ff. With woodcut device on title, large historiated woodcut initials, and an additional engraved folding plan of Tripolis (204 x 285 mm), not called for by bibliographies. 18th century full vellum with giltstamped red morocco label to spine (very similar to the bindings done for the Venetian library of Giacomo Soranzo). 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 defence 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 in the all-out Italian War of 1551-59 in the European theatre. 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 recaptur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale de cette paraphrase des Psaumes composée par le célèbre humaniste et poète écossais George Buchanan (1506-1582). "The book was issued simultaneously in two formats, 8vo and 16mo, with some differences in contents; it is the only book published jointly by Henri and his brother Robert II. Renouard believed that is was printed in Paris, and lists this title among the imprints of Robert II; but the use of Henri's device 9 proves conclusively that it was printed in Geneva" (Schreiber).

(22)., relié. - Première édition réalisée par Henri Estienne de la traduction de l'originale grecque en latin. Belle impression en caractères romains, claire, avec les notes en marges. 'Edition belle et correcte'. Brunet, III, 122. Illustré de 4 planches dépliantes représentant la tour de Babylone, les jardins de Sémiramis, le palais de Sémiramis et la ville de Babylone. Ces planches manquent souvent. Reliure XIXème en demi veau émeraude deuxième moitié XIXe, dos lisse à petit fers et roulettes. Pièce de titre rouge. Exemplaire très frais. Restauration des mors. L'ouvrage commence par l'apologie de l'histoire d'Hérodote d'Henri Estienne (issu de la 3e génération des Estienne, illustre famille d'éditeurs célèbres pour ses éditions grecques et latines), qu'il écrivit pour répondre à certaines autorités ecclésiastiques qui critiquaient l'histoire d'Herodote. La traduction est l'uvre de l'humaniste italien Lorenzo Valla (1406-1457), latiniste et helléniste reconnu, il commença cette traduction vers 1450. La vie d'Homère est quant à elle l'uvre d'un humaniste allemand Conrad Heresbach. Celui qu'on a surnommé le père de l'histoire s'intéressa aux guerres médiques et à l'égypte, mais le plus remarquable pour nous autres contemporains est sa méthode qui lui valut son surnom, il n'écrivait rien avant de visiter les lieux où s'était déroulé l'histoire.

BOULAESE (Jehan)
2 ouvrages reliés en un volume petit in-8, plein vélin souple de l'époque, dos lisse titré à la plume, traces d'attaches sur les plats. Réunion, à l’époque, de ces deux rarissimes ouvrages parus séparément relatant la célèbre affaire de possession et d’exorcisme de Nicole Obry de Vervins en Picardie, alors âgée de 15 ans. Possédée par plusieurs démons, la jeune femme subit des séances d’exorcisme à Vervins et à Liesse, avant d’être conduite à Laon le 24 janvier 1566 pour être exposée sur un échafaud dressé dans la cathédrale. Elle y fut finalement "délivrée" du dernier des démons, Belzebuth, par l'hostie que lui tendit l’évêque. L’affaire fut immédiatement utilisée contre les huguenots: le Diable, lors de l’exorcisme, désigna les hérétiques comme ses meilleurs amis et l’œuvre de l’hostie apporta la preuve de la transsubstantiation. Le retentissement fut immense: le roi Charles IX et Catherine de Médicis, de passage à Laon, reçurent Nicole Obry le mardi 27 août 1566. Jean Bodin, qui représenta la ville de Laon aux premiers Etats de Blois (1576-1577), commente le cas dans sa 'Démonomanie des Sorciers'. Au XIXe siècle, Gilles de la Tourette se servit de ce cas pour sa description de la crise d’hystérie. L’auteur, Jehan Boulaese, était prêtre, professeur d'hébreu et principal au Collège de Montaigu. Proche disciple de Guillaume Postel, il devint son secrétaire. Postel vit, dans le "miracle de Laon", l’aube d’une ère nouvelle pour la chrétienté et l'annonce de la "Concorde universelle", ce qui l'amena à envoyer Boulaese en Espagne, muni de sa brochure ('L'abbregée histoire du Gr … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOULAESE (Jehan)
1566. 2 ouvrages reliés en un volume petit in-8 (123 x 80 mm), plein vélin souple ivoire de l’époque, dos lisse cordé titré à la plume, traces d’attaches sur les plats. Réunion, à l’époque, de ces deux rarissimes ouvrages parus séparément relatant la célèbre affaire de possession et d’exorcisme de Nicole Obry de Vervins en Picardie, alors âgée de 15 ans. Possédée par plusieurs démons, la jeune femme subit des séances d’exorcisme à Vervins et à Liesse, avant d’être conduite à Laon le 24 janvier 1566 pour être exposée sur un échafaud dressé dans la cathédrale. Elle y fut finalement "délivrée" du dernier des démons, Belzebuth, par l'hostie que lui tendit l’évêque. L’affaire fut immédiatement utilisée contre les huguenots: le Diable, lors de l’exorcisme, désigna les hérétiques comme ses meilleurs amis et l’œuvre de l’hostie apporta la preuve de la transsubstantiation. Le retentissement fut immense: le roi Charles IX et Catherine de Médicis, de passage à Laon, reçurent Nicole Obry le mardi 27 août 1566. Jean Bodin, qui représenta la ville de Laon aux premiers Etats de Blois (1576-1577), commente le cas dans sa 'Démonomanie des Sorciers'. Au XIXe siècle, Gilles de la Tourette se servit de ce cas pour sa description de la crise d’hystérie. L’auteur, Jehan Boulaese, était prêtre, professeur d'hébreu et principal au Collège de Montaigu. Proche disciple de Guillaume Postel, il devint son secrétaire. Postel vit, dans le "miracle de Laon", l’aube d’une ère nouvelle pour la chrétienté et l'annonce de la "Concorde universelle", ce qui l'amena à envoyer Boulaese en Espagne, muni de sa bro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scaliger Iulius Cesar
Apud Guli Rovillium, 1566. In folio; due opere in un volume: (8), 396, (28) pp. e 143, (9) pp. Bella legatura seicentesca in piena pergamena con titolo in oro al dorso che si presenta a sei nervi, qualche lieve segno del tempo ma nel complesso in buone condizioni di conservazione. Bella marca tipografica di Guillaume Rouillé (1545-1589) al frontespizio di ogni volume. Alcune pagine leggermente ed uniformemente brunite a causa alla qualità della carta, ininfluente. Un leggerissimo alone ininfluente al margine esterno bianco delle ultime 10 carte del secondo volume e nel complesso ambedue le opere si presentano in buone-ottime condizioni di conservazione. Testatine, iniziali e finalini xilografici. Bell'edizioni stampate da Rouillé di queste due celebri opere del grande scrittore, medico e filosofo originario di Riva del Garda, Giulio Cesare Scaligero, latinizzato in Julius Caesar Scaliger (1484-1558). Di origine italiana, trascorse in Francia parte della sua vita, e la parte più fruttuosa della sua carriera. A dispetto del suo atteggiamento arrogante e incline alla polemica, era alta la sua reputazione tra i contemporanei, che lo giudicavano così distinto nel suo sapere e talento, che, secondo Jacques Auguste de Thou, nessuno degli antichi poteva essere collocato sopra di lui, e che l'età in cui visse non presentò nessun sapiente paragonabile a lui. Nelle proprie note biografiche, Scaligero si spaccia per un discendente del casato dei Della Scala (che furono, per 150 anni, i signori di Verona) e si dice nato nell'anno 1484 a Rocca di Riva, sulle rive del Lago di Garda. Era f … [Click Below for Full Description]
