        Opera. De Naturalium Effectuum admirandorum causis, seu de Incantationibus Liber. Item de Fato: Libero arbitrio: Praedestinatione: Providentia Dei, Libri V

      [Edited by Guglielmo Gratarolo]. 32 p.l. (of which 4 are blank), 1015, [1] pp. 8vo, 17th cent. greenish brown morocco with the arms of Jean Jacques Charron, Marquis de Ménars, stamped in gilt on both covers, triple gilt fillet round sides, spine richly gilt with the cipher of Ménars repeated in four compartments, a.e.g. Basel: [H. Petrus, 1567]. First collected edition of many of the most controversial writings of Pomponazzi (1462-1525), a native of Mantua and a philosopher who taught at Padua, Ferrara, and Bologna. Lynn Thorndike, in his A History of Magic and Experimental Science, devotes an entire chapter (Vol. V, pp. 94-110) to Pomponazzi whose writings helped pave the way for the new, exact scientific conception of natural occurrences. This is an unusually fine copy, from the library of Jean Jacques Charron, Marquis de Ménars (1643-1718), President of the Paris Parliament, brother-in-law of the great Colbert, and one of the outstanding French bibliophiles of the epoch. Charron "enriched his cabinet," to use Guigard's expression, by acquiring the entire Bibliotheca Thuana, minus those lots which Bishop Huet and P.D. Verthamon had purchased on the first day of its sale. Ménars' library was sold by auction in 1720. The first text -- On the Causes of Natural Effects, or, On Incantations -- was written in 1520 in reply to a physician of Mantua who had asked his fellow townsman what explanation could be given on Peripatetic grounds for certain marvelous cures and seemingly miraculous events. The physician and alchemist Gratarolo (1516?-68?), found this controversial text in manuscript in Padua and brought it north with him when he fled Italy in 1555. The text was finally published in Basel under Protestant rather than Catholic auspices. Pomponazzi's doctrines on immortality, first set forth in De Immortalitate (1516), yielded cries of outrage from prominent philosophers and theologians and caused the immortality controversy, one of the most important debates prior to the Reformation. In the present work, Pomponazzi "investigated seemingly miraculous events reported by contemporary witnesses, pagan literature, and Christian doctrine. He developed naturalistic explanations for all these occurrences except, at first, the Christian miracles...The Christian religion, which at first appeared as a final truth, above time and corruption, is now depicted as having a perfectly natural origin. All religions, said Pomponazzi, are born, flourish, and die. Their birth is produced not by the fiat of a personal deity but by the eternal movements of the heavens, guided by the Intelligences... "If religions arise naturally, it follows that their doctrines many also have a natural basis, a human rather than a divine origin. In fact, the doctrines about angels and demons are not eternal truths but simply fictions."-D.S.B., XI, pp. 72-74-(& see the entire article regarding this interesting man and his ideas). The second text -- De Fato (on fate and free will) -- was written in 1520 and published here for the first time. It was equally controversial. Pomponazzi claimed that all effects which are called fortuitous have certain and determined causes. In other words, chance events are really under the stars. Fine copy. First few leaves with light marginal dampstaining. Later bookplates of "Charles Butler of Warren Wood, Hatfield" and "S.E. Henry J. Reynaud, Geneve." ❧ Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. XII, p. 227. Ménars: Guigard, II, pp. 125-26. .

De Laudibus Legum Angliae, a history of English law, was written for the instruction of Edward, the young Prince of Wales. Cast in dialogue form, it demonstrates that the common law was the oldest and most reasonable legal system in Europe. It also compares the common and Roman systems and extols the superiority of a constitutionally limited monarch to an absolute monarch. De Laudibus was written around 1470 and first published (in Latin) in 1537. "Fortescue was a favorite among the old lawyers, and will be read with profit in modern times by those who are interested in the origin and progress of the Common Law" (Marvin). This was the first work to examine extensively trial by jury and the Inns of Court. OCLC locates 4 copies in North American law libraries (Georgetown, Harvard, LA County, UVA). Ma

First published in 1556, it is the work of Valeriano (1477-1558), a native of Belluno, whom Pope Leo X de Medici made the educator of the younger generation of the Medici family. Valeriano rose to such fame as a scholar that Venice erected a statue of him outside the Frari church. Despite its title, this work will tell the reader very little about the hieroglyphs of Egypt, but it is full of information on natural history, culled from Medieval bestiaries, lapidaries, and the "Physiologus," an ancient book of Alexandrian origin. More important, the work was widely used as a source in the 16th and 17th centuries for art, literature, and emblem books. Mortimer calls the book "a major contribution to emblem literature," and Moseley calls it "the great encyclopedia of symbol for the period." The author arranges his information in a series of entries, each illustrating a "hieroglyph," accompanied by woodcuts ranging from an eagle with young to a sailing ship, to mystic triangles, to a man in a brimmed hat. Our second edition is enlarged with 20 additional woodcuts, and with two books written by Celio Agostino Curione as a supplement to Valeriano's work. This volume was once in the library of the Imperial Abbey of Kaisersheim ("Caesarea" in Latin), a Cistercian monastery in the diocese of Augsburg, and its attractive blindstamped binding may have been executed for that abbey. Its Fides roll (identified in the German bindings database as EBDB r003201) seems to be identical to one used by Daniel Wachtler, also called the Werdenstein Binder, known to have been active in Augsburg ca. 1578. In recognition of its value as a reference tool, our volume had been clearly designated by its 16th century keepers as a non-circulating book, having been chained to a rod to prevent its removal.

        Statuta Urbis Ferrariae nuper Reformata.

      Ferrara Francesco Rossi 1567. - Folio [30.5 x 19.5 cm], (10) ff., 307 [i.e. 308], (13) ff., including woodcut title showing Ferrara and Este arms, and full-page woodcut portrait of the printer Rossi on EEEviii v. Bound in 18th-century stiff vellum, title stenciled on spine. Some minor staining in scattered leaves and some trivial worming in margin, but generally a broad-margined and fresh copy, excellent. Rare and most likely the earliest acquirable edition of the municipals laws of Ferrara, one of the richest and most cultivated of Northern Italian courts, published shortly after the concluding session of the Council of Trent (1563). The work contains one of the earliest portrait of a printer in a book he himself produced (see below). The work significantly revises the previous publication of local statutory law, and is signed by a committee of local jurists (3v-4r). The statutes govern all aspects of civil and criminal law, from the buying and selling of goods and property, marriage, testaments, to criminal procedure. The work is of interest for containing a portrait of the printer. Note: Rossi had no editorial or authorial part in the work; he is expressly designated "Typographus" (printer) in the identifying legend. This is of interest to historians of the book for it showing the developing confidence and prestige enjoyed by 16th-century printers, and is analogous, though considerably more assertive, to putting an element of the printer’s process or trade in a publisher’s device. "Rossi was near the end of a career as a printer at Ferrara that covered more than 50 years and certainly justified the use of his portrait in this volume" (Mortimer, I.261). Although it should be regarded as a form of self-indulgence and did not catch on—as say, the author portraits on which it is based obviously did—it nonetheless remains an interesting bit of evidence for the elevated status of Italian printers. There is no repertory of examples and we know of no study of the subject, but in querying colleagues we have located only two earlier analogous portraits: Rossi pictured himself in smaller format in the colophon to another book he published: Giovanni Maria Verrato’s 1561 response to critics of the Council of Trent: Contra responsiones et protestationes. And Francesco Priscianese pictured himself in a Latin grammar published in 1540. Also, Prof. Anthony Grafton draws our attention to the portraits of the illustrators in the Historia Stirpium of Leonhart Fuchs (1542). Further searching would doubtless turn up a few other examples, but it is clearly an isolated phenomenon The statutes received an incunable edition in 1476 published by Severino da Ferrara (BMC VI.609, the only copy we have been able to locate): this edition is not in Goff, and we locate no American copy. The next edition was published by Rossi in 1534 with a less elaborate version of the title cut, and without the portrait. The present edition is next, making it third. According to Mortimer, the hypothetical issue points raised by F. Berlan in his Bibliografia degli statuti municipali ed inediti di Ferrara (Rome 1878) pp. 21-7 are in need of substantial copy-checking. There are no copies of the editio princeps or the 1534 edition in America; for the present edition, OCLC lists Kansas, Minnesota and the Waseda Library, to which should be added the Harvard copy described by Mortimer. * Mortimer, Italian 182; Adams F266; Fumagalli, Lexicon, p. 128, fig 45 (portrait); L.

Kindler 8, 3072f. - Emblembücher, wie das des italienischen Juristen Andrea Alciati (Alciato 1492-1550), erstmals 1531 in Augsburg unter dem Titel "Emblematum liber" erschienen (vermutete frühere Ausgaben konnten bisher nicht nachgewiesen werden), wurden im 16. u. 17. Jh. häufig als Stammbücher benützt. So liegt der Wert der vorliegenden schönen Ausgabe der "Emblemata" mit den Holzschnitten des Virgil Solis v.a. in seiner Verwendung als "Album amicorum". Zwar sind die rund 25 Eintragungen kaum, wie bei vielen anderen historischen Stammbüchern, von künstlerischem, jedoch, im Hinblick auf den Stammbucheigner, Jakob Andrea Frh. v. Brandis (1569-1629), von großem historischen Wert. Die Tiroler Linie des ursprünglich aus Graubünden stammenden und heute noch (in Lanna/Südtirol) bestehenden Adelsgeschlechtes von Brandis (Brandes, Brandeis), ist seit dem 12. Jh. in der urkundlichen Geschichte Tirols nachzuweisen (Henricus dictus de Launa war bereits in Lanna ansässig). Jakob Andreas v. Brandis war 1609/1610-1628 Landeshauptmann von Tirol. Vorliegende Stammbucheintragungen entstanden in den Jahren 1584 u. 1585 (eine v. 1582?) in Bologna. Der damals etwa 16jährige Jakob Andreas v. Brandis reiste 1584 nach Bologna, um die dortige Universität zu besuchen. (Vgl. dazu die, d. Schrift d. Freiherrn, "Jacob Andrä Frh. v. Brandis. Geschichte d. Landeshauptleute v. Tirol, Innsbruck, Wagner 1850, S.I." vorangestellte Lebensbeschreibung des Autors. Das bis dahin nur als Handschrift vorliegende Werk wurde 1850 erstmals hrsg.) Das Führen v. Stammbüchern war unter Studenten eine bis ins 19. Jh.gebräuchliche Gepflogenheit. Bis um die Mitte des 17. Jh. waren die Eintragungen meist in Latein verfasst. Sie konnten später auch als Nachweis akademischer Verbindungen genutzt werden und stärkten, beim Besuch ausländischer Universitäten, die Zusammengehörigkeit unter Studenten gleicher nationaler Herkunft. Die Universität Bologna gehört nicht nur zu den ältesten Europas, sondern war auch schon, noch vor der Gründung anderer europäischer Universitäten, Sitz einer deutschen studentischen Korporation. Unter den Stammbuchbeiträgen befinden sich u.a. die Namen Wolfgangus a Liechtenstein, de Pernegg, Kobolt, Söll ab Aichperg u.a.

Limited to 500 copies. 1st edition.Cervantes de Salazar was one of the principal chroniclers who gathered data on the history and ethnography of Mexico. His most important book Cronica de la Nueva Espana (Chronicle of New Spain), written at the command of City Council. The manuscript of this work was sent by the author to Spain in 1567 with a request for the post of royal chronicler. This manuscript was uncovered in the early 1900s catalogued in the National Library of Madrid as an anonymous manuscript. the first volume was published in 1914 and the second and third in 1936. The Chronicle is fragmentary since the first part, which was to include the period up to the conquest of Yucatan, either was never written or was lost; and the second part, which was to be a history of the conquest, breaks off with Columbus sending Villafuerte and Sandoval to the Pacific Ocean. Cervantes de Salazar's sources were the Letters of Cortes; the memoirs of Alonso de Ojeda and Andres de Tapia, captains in Cortes' army; the Memoranda of Motilinia; the work of Lopez de Gomara; and the information gathered from others who had taken part in the conquest who were sill living in Mexico City twenty-five years later from whom he received useful information. The Chronicle is valued for its understanding and evaluation of the events it describes.Condition:"With compliments of the Hispanic Society" slip tipped in and slip from the Congresso de los Diputados tipped in to copy write page with Nuttall's name as receiving copy number three which is such labeled of 500 copies.

D. Gvalteri Haddoni, Legum Doctoris, serenissimæ reginæ Elizabethæ, à supplicum libellis, Poëmata, studio & labore Thomæ Hatcheri Cantabrigiensis sparsim collecta, & edita. [2], 140, [2] pp. Londini, APVD Gulielmum Seresium. 1567. 4to, black morocco, spine gilt in compartments, all edges gilt, a very nice copy. Part 1 has orations and epistles. Part 2 is an enlarged edition of "Haddoni Poëmata." "The emerging humanistic culture of mid-sixteenth-century Cambridge is further, and amply, illustrated by the Lucubrationes of the latin poet Walter Haddon, who was appointed Regius Professor of Civil Law at Cambridge University in March 1550/51, and was also created Master of Requests at the accession of Elizabeth. Haddon is a man of some significance in mid-sixteenth-century England as a statesman and man of letters with a wide circle of influential friends. His Lucubrationes passim collectae, & editae were gathered together by Thomas Hatcher, who later was also responsible for the publication of Nicholas Carr's De scriptorum britannicorum paucitate oratio in 1576. The Lucubrationes were printed in London in 1567 by William Seres. The whole volume is a mine of information about the intellectual condition of mid-century Cambridge. It is prefaced by preliminary verses from the Cambridge literati John Fryer and Abraham Hartwell the elder, and is dedicated [by Hatcher] to William Cecil as Chancellor of Cambridge University. There is also a prefatory letter from Thomas Wilson to Hatcher. The Lucubrationes contains some ten speeches which, as this letter makes clear, were actually delivered by Haddon, as well as the first collected edition of his poems, and copies of his letters to men such as Charles Brandon Duke of Suffolk, the Duke of Northumberland, Sir John Cheke, Thomas Wilson, Robert Dudley Earl of Leicester, Sir Thomas Smith, and the Portuguese controversialist Osorius da Fonseca. These speeches amply illustrate the intellectual life of the times, and Haddon makes frequent mention of the activities of his Cambridge contemporaries throughout. The orations provide an instant commentary on the state of learning at Cambridge in his day.Haddon's Lucubrationes is a key text for the understanding of the reception and assimilation of humane learning in sixteenth-century England." - J. W. Binns, Intellectual Culture in Elizabethan and Jacobean England. STC, 12596. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Carlo Sigonio nacque a Modena intorno al 1520, fu al servizio del Cardinal Marino Grimani e nel 1546 Modena gli assegnò la cattedra di lingua greca, succedendo al suo maestro Francesco Porto. Nel 1552 il Senato di Venezia gli assegnò la cattedra di belle lettere e otto anni più tardi passò a Padova ad insegnare eloquenza e quindi, nel 1563 fu a Bologna dove iniziò a redigere le Historiae Bononienses ab initio civitatis usque ad annum MCCLVII che vedranno le stampe nel 1578.
