        Dionysiaca, nunc primum in lucem edita, ex Bibliotheca Ioannis Sambuci Pannonij. Cum lectionibus, & coniecturis Gerarti Falkenburgij Noviomagi, & indice copioso.

      Antwerp: Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1569. First edition. Hardcover. 8vo. pp. [24], 899, [21]. With woodcut Plantin device on title. (Leaf Ii6 in index is mis-signed Kk3 etc.) Text is in GREEK. Re-bound in modern full calf with blind tooling after an early period style. Interior pages are generally clean with occasional light age-toning, spotting, minor wear. Title page shows tanning towards the outer margin edges; the date 1569 is written in an old hand (in small Arabic numerals) bellow the Roman numeral date. A 65 x 19 mm piece is clipped from the blank lower margin of leaf I4 and is neatly patched with early period paper. Some leaves overhang the text block about 1 mm. Nonnus of Panopolis was a Greek poet from the Egyptian Thebaid who lived in the 5th century c.e. His epic poem, ?"Dionysiaca?" in 48 books, is the longest surviving poem from antiquity. The poem describes the travels of the Greek god Dionysus, his adventures in Asia Minor, the Near East and India until his eventual return to the west. Nonnus?' work provides a view of Greek mythology and Dionysian religion in its late antique form. According to the scholar G.W. Bowersock ?"…it has become clear through individual studies of some of the local myths in the poem that Nonnos faithfully reproduces the legends of his own day and that he documents with astonishing precision the way in which indigenous cults were made accessible to a broader public in their Hellenized form.?" [See Bowersock, ?"Hellenism in late antiquity?", p. 42]. Christopher Plantin produced this first printed edition which was edited by Gerart Falkenburg from a manuscript in the library of Johannes Sambucus (Janos Zsamboky). [Adams N-331; Ruelens & De Backer, p. 93-94; Schweiger I, p. 214].

        Biblia sacrosancta : ad Hebraicam veritatem & probatissimorum ac manuscriptorum exemplarium fidem diligentissimè recognita, & restituta [ZURICH BIBLE]

      apud haeredes Nicolai Brylingeri, Basileae (Basel) 1569 - Octavo. [8], 500 [i.e. 503], [19] leaves (Index lacking six leaves at rear). Modern full black cloth, with gold lettering to spine. All edges green. Title with vignette, within historical border. Date of publication misprint on title (1469 instead of 1569). Illustrated headpiece, and decorative initials. First published in 1529, this copy is an early edition of the Zurich Bible, a Bible translation historically based on the translation by Huldrych Zwingli (1484-1531). Zwingli's translation grew out of the Prophezey, an exegetical workshop taking place on every weekday, with the participation of all clerics of Zürich, working at a German rendition of Bible texts for the benefit of the congregation. The translation of Martin Luther was used as far as it was already completed. This helped Zwingli to complete the entire translation five years before Luther. At the printing shop of Christoph Froschauer, the New Testament appeared from 1525 to 1529, and later parts of the Old Testament, with a complete translation in a single volume first printed in 1531, with an introduction by Zwingli and summaries of each chapter. The translation is mainly due to Zwingli and his friend Leo Jud, pastor at the St. Peter parish. The translation of the Old Testament was revised in 1540, that of the New Testament in 1574. Verse numbering was introduced in 1589.Contemporary inscription on title, as well as contemporary marginalia (in Hebrew and Latin) and underlining throughout. Clear waterstaining at upper margin of the first 136 leaves (not affecting lettering). Minor foxing to very first and very last leaves. Six leaves missing from the Index (Mundus to Victoria). Text in Latin. Binding in overall very good, interior in good to very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Re-backed and the front board re-cornered, probably in the early nineteenth century, the re-back now cracking slightly over front joint and worn a little at extreme head of spine; lacking the final leaf of text, this being supplied in facsimile; title-page unobtrusively re-margined at fore-edge; small, old, repair to lower margins of A4, Lll6 and fore-margin of Rrr6; light marginal damp-stains and light dusting to gathering A, mainly affecting the fore- margins and corners of A2 - 4, the fore-margins being also very slightly frayed at the extreme edges, as likewise Uvv7 this last having three small holes just touching two letters of the text; extreme fore- and lower- margins of some leaves towards the end slightly damp-stained: so lightly as scarcely to be noticeable on most of them, but more heavily on lower margins of gathering Qqq onwards, affecting the bottom centimetre, or less, of half the margin; single wormhole through extreme inner margins of gathering Dd; another in extreme lower margin of Ff2, 5, and 6, and Gg1; small hole in lower margins of Lll4, Qqq3, Qqq5, and lower fore-corner of Sss5, due apparently to original paper flaws; insignificant pen trials or reader?'s marks on lower margin of Cc2v and fore-margin of R5v, Nn1r, Ggg4v, and inner margin of Mm6v; pen trial on upper margin of Ji2r and small drawing of a flagon between the columns; contemporary ms. notes on Q5v and Qqq5v - the former a bold long vertical inscription, apparently recording ownership, but almost trimmed off by the eighteenth century binder; name ?'John Wyte?' (or ?'Wyke?') written in a very small neat contemporary hand on A2r and B1r (where the Christian name appears, in contracted form, as ?'Joh[ann]es?'); otherwise, and in general, an excellent, clean, crisp copy with good margins. Apparently rare. An unrecorded third issue of Stowe?'s edition of 1560This appears to be an unrecorded third issue of the 1560 - 1 printing: sheets of the first issue supplied with cancel title and secondary title-pages, omitting the four leaves of prelims. (containing the dedication to Henry VIII (denominated ?'Prologue?'), the Table which follows on from it, and two short prefatory poems apparently inserted originally to fill up space). It is also possible that the final leaf of text was a tipped-in cancel omitting the dated colophon, and that is why it has dropped out. The title, and the two secondary title-pages (identical to those in the 1561 edition except that the wood-cut frame is here without the top and side rules, the printer?'s flower is omitted from the central panel, and the titles are in Roman face rather than black-letter), have all been modernised, in spelling as well as design. The dedication to Henry VIII and its associated leaves would have been redundant even in 1560, Henry having died in 1547, which suggests that the printer, Kyngston, used one of the variants of the William Thynne edition, most probably that of 1545 or 1550 as a setting text, copying its already antiquated style and spelling when he did so. The first collected edition of Chaucer?'s works was printed in three parts in 1526 by Pynson, and was very incomplete; it was superseded by a much fuller edition, edited by William Thynne, which first published in 1532, was reprinted in undated editions in 1540 or 1542 (the former date being claimed in an early ms. addition in the British Library copy, the latter being given by CBEL, I, p.211 or NCBEL, I:557), and again either in 1545, 1546, 1550 or 1551 (depending which authority you follow), the last of these editions being distinguished in point of text principally by the fact of ?'The Ploughman?'s Tale?' (a non-Chaucerian piece of Lollardy) being placed within the actual text of ?'The Canterbury Tales?' immediately preceeding ?'The Parson?'s Tale?'. The present edition, issued originally with a title-page similar to the one described here, but bearing the date 1660, represents a further re-printing of that, with the addition of a section of poems edited by John Stowe - this being his first published work - yet further enlarging the canon to the extent of some nineteen poems printed from manuscript sources. Sale of this edition appears to have been slow and it was re-issued with a different title-page, bearing the date 1561, using at head and side borders a wood-cut of King Henry VIII and his court. The first three gatherings in fact were entirely reprinted, this being done to permit the inclusion of twenty-two wood-cut illustrations in the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales, the signatures running [floret]4 ([floret]iii being mis-signed Aiii), +6, A4, B - I6... instead of the [floret]4, A - I6... of the earlier issue. In the illustrated issue some damage to the wood-cut frame of the first secondary title is apparent which is evident also here: a crack in the wood extends from the centre of the lower edge, up through the box identifying King Henry IIII. to just left of centre of the title box, and another from the top left-hand corner of the title-box, through the box identifying King Henry VII and ending, apparently at a worm-hole, in its top rules. STC, 2nd edition, unaccountably and without assigning a reason, lists the first two issues in the reverse order - despite the evidence in the illustrated issue of the later date on the title-page, the obviously interpolated gathering ?'+?' (which contains the first six illustrated leaves of ten, the rest being in the variant, short, gathering ?'A?'), and the extended splitting of the wood-block on the title-page to the Canterbury Tales which shows only a slight split at the extreme tail in the original printing, and no worm-hole. There is no record of a further printing of Chaucer?'s Works until 1598. This issue dated 1569 is entirely unrecorded. The inclusion in the present copy of a folio numbered ccxxxii no fewer than three times is correct: there is no reduplication of text, and the same thing occurs in the British Library copies of the 1560 - 61 edition; so also does the curious dropping of the lower case letters between Pp and Aaa. In addition to the systematic mis-foliations noticed above, leaf T2 (f.Ciiij) is misnumbered Ciij; Gg1 (f.Cli), Cxli; Gg6 (f.Clvi), Cxlvi; Nn6 (f.Cxcij), Ccxij; T[t]2 (f.CCxxiv), CCxxv; X[x]2 (f.ccxxxvi), ccxlij; X[x]3 (f.ccxxxvij), ccxliij; X[x]4 (f.ccxxxviij), ccxlvi; X[x]5 (f.ccxxxix), ccxliii; X[x]6 (f.ccxl), ccxliiij; X[x]7 (f.ccxli), ccxlvi; X[x]8 (f.ccxlij), ccxli; Y[y]1 (f.ccxliij), ccxli; Ddd3 (f.cclxxiij), cclxxvi; Fff1 (f.cclxxxiij), cclxxxi; Fff2 (f.cclxxxiiij), cclxxxiii; Kkk3 (f.cccix), cccviij; Kkk4 (f.cccx), cccix; Lll3 (f.cccxv), cccxvj; Lll4 (f.cccxvi), cccxvij; Ppp2 (f.cccxxxviij), ccclx; Qqq1 (f.cccxlv), cccxxxix; Qqq2 (f.cccxlvj), cccxlviij; Sss4 (f.ccclxij), ccclxiij; Uvv7 (f.ccclxxvij), ccclxvij. There is no catch-word present on Fff1v. The number 100 is variously represented by a capital or lower-case ?'c?', apparently distinguishing changes of compositor.

        Dionysiaca, nunc primum in lucem edita, ex Bibliotheca Ioannis Sambuci Pannonij. Cum lectionibus, & coniecturis Gerarti Falkenburgij Noviomagi, & indice copioso.

      Ex officina Christophori Plantini, Antwerp 1569 - 8vo. pp. [24], 899, [21]. With woodcut Plantin device on title. (Leaf Ii6 in index is mis-signed Kk3 etc.) Text is in GREEK. Re-bound in modern full calf with blind tooling after an early period style. Interior pages are generally clean with occasional light age-toning, spotting, minor wear. Title page shows tanning towards the outer margin edges; the date 1569 is written in an old hand (in small Arabic numerals) bellow the Roman numeral date. A 65 x 19 mm piece is clipped from the blank lower margin of leaf I4 and is neatly patched with early period paper. Some leaves overhang the text block about 1 mm. Nonnus of Panopolis was a Greek poet from the Egyptian Thebaid who lived in the 5th century c.e. His epic poem, "Dionysiaca" in 48 books, is the longest surviving poem from antiquity. The poem describes the travels of the Greek god Dionysus, his adventures in Asia Minor, the Near East and India until his eventual return to the west. Nonnus’ work provides a view of Greek mythology and Dionysian religion in its late antique form. According to the scholar G.W. Bowersock " it has become clear through individual studies of some of the local myths in the poem that Nonnos faithfully reproduces the legends of his own day and that he documents with astonishing precision the way in which indigenous cults were made accessible to a broader public in their Hellenized form." [See Bowersock, "Hellenism in late antiquity", p. 42]. Christopher Plantin produced this first printed edition which was edited by Gerart Falkenburg from a manuscript in the library of Johannes Sambucus (Janos Zsamboky). [Adams N-331; Ruelens & De Backer, p. 93-94; Schweiger I, p. 214]. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fiorenza.

      Venezia, Bolognino Zaltieri, 1569. Incisione in rame all?acquaforte, b / n, cm 21,3 x 29. Veduta a volo d?uccello della città di Firenze tratta dal ?De? disegni delle più illustri città et fortezze del mondo?, edita da Bolognino Zaltieri nel 1569, opera realizzata sulla scia de ?Il Primo Libro delle Città et Fortezze Principali del Mondo? del Forlani (1567) e de ?Il Civitatum Aliquot insigniorum et locorum..? del Bertelli (1568). L'opera è costituita da cinquanta vedute e da una carta geografica, e rappresenta il primo tentativo, nell'ambito dell'editoria italiana, della realizzazione di un insieme delle principali fortezze e città del mondo. A differenza dei suoi predecessori, dei quali utilizza spesso i rami e le iconografie (e quindi pur risultando il suo lavoro una ristampa delle lastre del Forlani e di Domenico Zenoi) il Ballino concepisce un'opera unitaria corredata di testo descrittivo e di indice e della quale, per la prima volta, si ha perciò la conoscenza dell'esatto numero di tavole che la compongono. In realtà poi, la veduta di Firenze è più grande per dimensioni rispetto alle precedenti inserite nei lavori di Forlani e Bertelli, e quindi non risulta essere una ristampa di queste; tuttavia la correzione nel titolo (alla L di Florencia, di cui restano tracce, si sostituisce qui la I di Fiorenza) lascia supporre che si tratti comunque di una ristampa da una lastra realizzata in precedenza. In ogni caso l'incisione del Ballino è resa riconoscibile rispetto a quelle dello Zenoi e del Bertelli per la presenza del testo al verso, peraltro in un volgare già molto italianizzato. Monogrammata in lastra in basso al centro ITC. Bell'esemplare in ampi margini, in bella impressione e in ottimo stato di conservazione. (Cfr. Cremonini pp. 10, 11; Valerio, pp. 46, 47).

The earliest edition published by Sebastianum Gryphium, in 8 we have found is that in 1539, owned by BN France. Italic print. Full contemporary calf. Back tooled raised florets, roulette cold tail and cap. Hot boards struck a central medallion with Renaissance motifs. Nets coaching. Gilt edges. Friction. Mors skillfully restored. Edition of the most famous work of Lucan (39-65), better known by the name of the Pharsalia, which tells the epic form in the wars between Caesar and Pompey. The poem follows the chronological order of events and is not without historical interest. The Latin poet was born in Cordoba in Spain, he fell out of favor with Nero, then participated in the conspiracy Nison against the emperor, who ordered him to suicide. His contemporaries gave him a brilliant language and a rare energy style, cleaner perhaps eloquence than poetry. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Le poème suit l'ordre chronologique des événements et n'est pas sans intérêt historique. Ce poète latin était né en Espagne à Cordoue, il tomba en disgrâce auprès de Néron, puis participa à la conjuration de Nison contre l'empereur, qui lui intima le suicide. Ses contemporains lui accordaient une langue brillante et une rare énergie de style, plus propre peut-être à l'éloquence qu'à la poésie.

        Omnium fere gentium nostrae aetatis habitus, nunquam ante hac aediti

      Bertelli (i. e. 1563), Venice 1569 - In-4. Collation : titre, 60 ff. Vélin. (Reliure du XIXe.). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Engraved title and a beautiful suite of 60 engraved plates showing the "costumes of almost all the peoples of our time" as announced on the title. Each plate is numbered and captioned, most are after the drawings of Enea Vico. It shows various European peoples but also Tartars, Turks, Africans, "Babylonians" Arabs, Ethiopians. Second edition, but this is a mere reissue of the first. It is easy to see that strokes was added on title to convert the date MDLXIII in MDLXVIIII. Ferdinando (or Ferrando) Bertelli was engraver, publisher and dealer of prints and maps in Venice. Very rare. Most copies in Worldcatalog are microfilms. There are copies with 4 other plates without captions or numbers, such as the copy of Cicognara's copy (No. 1588). But most copies were published with these 60 plates only. (Bibliothéque Mazarine, INHA Collections Jacques Doucet, Berkeley University .) The copy of the Getty Research Institute has a title and 59 plates only. Brunet describes this book with 60 plates also. Bookplate of Hippolyte Destailleur, architect, collector, bibliophile and art historian. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Titre gravé et une belle suite de 60 planches, les "costumes de presque tous les peuples de notre temps" comme l'annonce le titre. Chaque planche est numérotée et légendée, la plupart d'après les dessins d'Enea Vico. On y voit divers peuples européens mais aussi des Tartares, des Turcs, des Africains, des "Babyloniens", des Arabes, des Ethiopiens. Seconde édition, mais il s'agit d'une simple remise en vente de la première. Si l'on compare les titres, il est facile de voir que des barres ont été ajoutés pour transformer la date de MDLXIII en MDLXVIIII. Ferdinando (ou Ferrando) Bertelli était graveur, éditeur et marchand d'estampes et de cartes géographiques à Venise. Très rare. La plupart des exemplaires dans le Worldcatalog sont des microfilms. Il existe des exemplaires où, à la suite des 60 planches numérotées, on trouve 4 planches sans légende, ni numéros, comme l'exemplaire de Cicognara (N°1588). Mais de nombreux exemplaires ont été publiés avec 60 planches. (Bibliothéque Mazarine, INHA Collections Jacques Doucet, Berkeley University.) L'exemplaire du Getty Research Institute a 59 planches : "Engraved t.p. and 59 unnumbered costume engravings." Brunet décrit ce volume en 60 planches et dit que les planches supplémentaires de Cicognara n'appartiennent sans doûte pas à cette suite. (Il parle de 12 planches mais c'est une erreur, pour 4]. Ex-libris d'Hippolyte Destailleur, architecte, collectionneur, bibliophile et historien de l'art. Doté d'un goût très sûr, Hippolyte Destailleur forma sa vie durant ce qui devait devenir l'une des plus importantes collections privées d'art graphique (dessins et estampes), ainsi qu'une bibliothèque composée de plusieurs milliers d'ouvrages. Après avoir vendu en 1879 la majeure partie de sa collection à Berlin, où elle devait servir de fondement à la "Kunstbibliothek", Destailleur entrepris d'en composer une seconde, pour laquelle il fit preuve, à en croire les témoignages parvenus, d'un souci plus particulier de l'état de conservation et de la provenance des ?uvres achetées. Sa vente de livres eut lieu en 1891. Brunet 815 : "Recueil rare composé de 60 planches chiffrées." Colas, Bibliographie du costume et de la mode 315. (qui cite cet exemplaire). La planche 56 est en double. Quelques petites restaurations dans la marge blanche du titre et de quelques planches. Bel exemplaire.

Illustrated with woodcut initials, woodcut printers device on title and last page plus 38 full-page woodcuts. 8vo., 145 x 96 mm, bound in seventeenth century Italian mottled calf. Venice: Giovanni Varisco, 1569. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition, first octavo edition and first with Thomaso Porcacchi's corrections. One of the earliest illustrated guides to Rome, depicting the principle ruins of the ancient city with a series of informative woodcuts. This second edition (the first was published in 1565) includes valuable corrections provided by Thomaso Porcacchi (1530-1585), renowned author and translator, best known for his book L'Isole piu famose del Mondo (The Most Famous Islands of the World). Gamucci's guide was a popular work because of it's simple format and illustrations clearly intended for less informed tourists rather than sophisticated scholars. It is broken in to four parts, the first focusing on the earliest Roman ruins, and the final part dealing with contemporaneous concerns such as the Vatican. The woodcuts, although simple, provide detailed depictions of the sights often populated by observing tourists and artists. Leaf I5 with a paper flow affecting text, five preliminary leaves with very minor tear in corner with loss not effecting text. Joints starting. Overall a near fine copy with strong impressions of the woodcuts. PROVENANCE: Scholar A.C. Lascarides, of New House Ham Common, with large light blue ex libris on front pastedown. Rossetti G404. Fossati Bellani 919.

      1569. BARBARO, Daniel. La Pratica della Perspettiva di Monsignor Daniel Barbaro Eletto Patriarca D'Aquileia, Opera molto utile a Pittori, a Scultori, & ad Architetti. [2], 196, [12] pp. Illustrated with over 200 woodcut diagrams and illustrations of which over 20 are full-page and one double-page. Folio, 300 x 204 mm, bound in contemporary Italian limp vellum, in a new red quarter morocco box. Venice: Camillo and Rutilio Borgominieri, 1569. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, second issue with both the title-page and colophon dated 1569. An unsophisticated copy of Daniel Barbaro's treatise on the rules of perspective specifically designed for Italian artists and architects, as previous quality treaties on the subject were in German, French and Latin. Barbaro (1514-1570) borrowed heavily from Serlio and from an unpublished treatise by Piero della Francesca for this work. However, the work stands on its own as an important advance in the understanding and practical use of perspective and brought these ideas to a broader audience. La Pratica della Perspettiva is divided into three parts: the first part discusses the principles of perspective and graphic representations. The second part breaks down the five regular polyhedrons, continuing the work of Leonardo and Pacioli. The last, and perhaps most important section, offers a study of scenography, dimensions of the human body, optical illusions, discussions of colour and shadow, and depictions of drawing instruments including the first analytic discussion of the camera obscura. The work is profusely illustrated with woodcut diagrams, geometrical forms, illustrations of architectural elements, scenery, anatomical illustrations, images of drawing instruments which includes the depiction of two men using one to copy a lute, freely borrowed from Albrecht Dürer's seminal Underweysung der Messung. Perhaps most attractive are the woodcut headpieces adorning the beginning of several chapters, being clever three-dimensional geometrical designs. Vellum with small stains and cracks, some very light marginal waterstaining, overall a fine copy in its original limp vellum binding, rare thus. PROVENANCE: Small blind stamp of the initials "F A" within a circle on the upper corner of the rear fly-leaf. Millard, Italian 12. Mortimer, Italian 39. Cicognara 809. Adams B170.

        Les Portraicts anatomiques de toutes les parties du corps humain

      Paris: Wechel, 1569. Hardcover. Near Fine. Folio [40 x 25.5 cm]. 4) ff., 106 pp., (1) ff. with printer's device on verso, plus 40 copper engraved full-page plates. Bound in early, possibly contemporary, reversed calf, covers somewhat worn, extremities with careful restoration. All pages neatly ruled in red/brown ink. With early ownership inscription scored on first title page, and several other inscriptions principally on rear pastedown and verso of final blank; occasional marginal handsoiling; a few minor marginal tears neatly mended. Pages generally very clean. Attractive genuine copies of both works. [Bound with]: Estienne, Charles, & Rivière, Estienne de la. La Dissection des parties du corps humain. Paris, de Colines, 1546. (8) ff., 405 pp., (1 integral blank), including 64 full-page woodcuts. A handsome pairing of the two most important anatomical works of the French Renaissance, both in their first French editions. Charles Estienne's superbly-illustrated Dissection des Parties du Corps Humain is bound here after Jacques Grévin's adaptation of Vesalius' De Humani Corporis Fabrica, being the first appearance of Vesalius in the French language. Together, these two spectacularly illustrated works present the pinnacle of 16th century anatomical illustration, each in a different medium -- the woodcut (Estienne) and the copper engraving (Vesalius) -- providing a vivid picture of the state of anatomy in the middle of the sixteenth century. More successful and influential than Vesalius' original works were the translations and adaptations which followed him. Prominent among these were the works of Thomas Geminus, a Flemish refugee living in London and a former roommate of Vesalius at Padua. In 1553, Geminus published an anatomy illustrated with 40 folio, anatomical copper engravings -- among the earliest produced in England -- after Vesalius' own striking woodcuts in De Fabrica (1543), which were "as influential as [Vesalius's original] woodcuts in the development of anatomical illustration" (Mortimer, French 541). In 1564, the French publisher André Wechel brought out an adaptation of Vesalius in Paris utilizing Geminus' original plates accompanied by a new commentary in Latin on Vesalian anatomy by Jacques Grévin. This work, translated in 1569, constitutes the first Vesalian work in French, which is the edition offered here. In contrast with Wechel's "French Vesalius" are the woodcut images in Charles Estienne's Dissection des parties du corps humain. Far more picturesque, richer in atmospheric detail, and even erotic, they present the shapely human figure -- strangely oblivious to the dissections of its body -- suggestively in repose: in Renaissance interiors, amid architectural ruins, set against townscapes or in gardens. According to Carlino, these images were inspired by a series of erotic figures by Perino del Vaga originally published in 1527. They were designed by Estienne de la Rivière, a famous French anatomist of his time and a contemporary rival of Vesalius. Though published for the first time (with Latin text) in 1545, Rivière's images, accompanied by the text of the esteemed physician Charles Estienne, were in fact prepared in 1539, four years earlier than Vesalius' De Fabrica (1543), and thus in many ways rightfully bear claim to the birth of modern anatomical illustration: "Had De dissectione been published in 1539, it would have been the first work to show detailed illustrations of dissection in serial progression, the first to discuss and illustrate the total human body, the first to publish instructions on how to mount the skeleton, and the first to set the anatomical figures in a fully developed panoramic landscape" (Norman). Unfortunately the two collaborators became involved in a lengthy lawsuit which delayed the publication of the Dissection des parties du corps humain by six years to 1545 (for the Latin edition).

        Commentaria in libros Hippocratis de ratione victus in morbis acutis

      Alcala de Henares: Andres de Angulo, 1569. 1st edition. Valles de Covarrubias, Francisco (1524--92). Commentaria in libros Hippocratis de ratione victus in morbis acutis. 8vo. 273, [15]ff. Alcala de Henares: Andres de Angulo, 1569. 149 x 96 mm. Half morocco. Browning & a little foxing, 1 or 2 tears but very good. Stamp of Medical Society of London on title, British Museum stamp dated 1787 & Wellcome Library stamp on title verso, Wellcome Library booklabel. Contemporary note on title & 2 or 3 text annotations. First Edition, and extremely rare, with OCLC recording only two copies (Harvard and NLM) in North American libraries; NUC NV 0022524 records only microfilm copies. One of the more imporant editions of Hippocrates' Regimen in Acute Diseases, which is among the earliest extant pathology texts in Western medicine. The Hippocratic writers established the humoral, mechanistic concept of disease that dominated medicine for over two millenia. They possessed a good deal of knowledge of specific disease processes, and the Regimen contains useful descriptions of such acute diseases as apoplexy, cholera, pleurisy, pneumonia, empyema, etc. Valles, the editor of this edition of the Regimen, was one of the leaders in the restoration of Hippocratic medicine, and one of Spain's most distinguished practitioners. His own observations on the cure of acute diseases may be found in his extensive commentary on the Regimen, which takes up several times more space than the original work. Valles's edition was printed by Andres de Angulo, famous for his fine Roman type (see Lyell 277-78), and as an early Spanish imprint, its rarity is just about guaranteed. This copy has a distinguished history, having passed from the British Museum in 1787 to the celebrated Medical Society of London, whose library was acquired by the Wellcome Library. Long, Hist. Pathology, pp. 5-8. Hirsch. Durling 4507. Wellcome I 6465. Not in Hispanic Society.

Title, "Tassa" leaf and lower corner of leaf L2 repaired, all with some loss, a few minor repaired tears in some other leaves. Very good copy apart from the repairs.Second edition of Monardes's treatise on the medical plants of the New World, first published in 1565. Both editions are rare in commerce. Monardes, a physician living in Seville, Spain, never traveled to America but was able to study a large number of New World plants due to Seville's control over the navigation and commerce operating between Spain and the Americas. He maintained a botanical garden in which he grew both native and exotic plants, and made scientific studies of the pharmacological properties of such New World species as tobacco, coca, sunflower, sarsaparilla, ipecacuanha, cinchona and sassafras. Monardes's Dos libros was "the first full treatise on these drugs, and for many years the most important study of the medicinal plants of Central America" (Mann, Modern Drug Use, p. 202). It was through Monardes's writings that the American materia medica began to be known, and his books were widely read and translated. The English version, translated by John Frampton, was published in 1569-71 under the title Joyfull Newes out of the Newe Founde Worlde. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.

Extrait de privilege date du 27 octobre 1568 et acheve d'imprimer du 30 decembre, au verso du titre. Au second feuillet : Epitre de Montaigne a son pere datee du jour de sa mort, le 18 juin 1568, et sonnet " Sur la theologie naturelle de Raymon [sic] Sebon " par Francois D'Amboise, au verso. Montaigne entreprit le long et difficile travail de traduction du chef-d'oeuvre de l'humaniste catalan Raymond Sebond, 'Scientia libri creaturarum', sur les conseils de son pere auquel il dedie ce livre. Dans cet essai considere comme le laboratoire philosophique des principes que Montaigne developpera tout au long de son oeuvre, le futur auteur des 'Essais', sous pretexte de defendre les idees de Sebon, reprend la methode rationaliste contenue dans 'La Theologie naturelle' pour la retourner et l'employer a des fins radicalement opposees. " Il ne prend la position du scepticisme que pour ruiner les fondements de l'atheisme rationaliste ". " A qui cherche des certitudes, Montaigne n'offre que cette incertitude, si inconfortable mais si seduisante : par la il inaugure profondement la modernite " (Jean Ceard). (Bibliotheca Desaniana : Catalogue Montaigne, n°1. J. Balsamo, 'Bibliographie des editions de la Theologie naturelle', in 'Montaigne et la theologie', sous la dir. de Ph. Desan, n°1, p. 124.
