Leaf 89 misnumbered 88; leaf 205 misnumbered 105. *** FIRST EDITION of a rare legal work with sections on slavery, Brazil, São Tomé, prostitutes and numismatics. At the request of the @regedor das justiças, Nunes de Lião undertook to make a summary of the five books of Portuguese law, with the addition of all extra laws. That summary (@Repertorio dos cinquo livros das ordenações … ) was published in 1560 by João Blavio, and it was followed nine years later by the present volume of additional laws. At the end of this volume, with separate title-page and pagination, is an eight-leaf section entitled @Annotações sobre as ordenações dos cinquo livros, que pelas leis extravagantes são revogadas ou interpretadas ..., Lisbon: per Antonio Gonçalvez, 1569. Although the work is not listed in Borba de Moraes, it includes numerous references to Brazil. On ff. 36r-37r is a law of 1565 setting out what crimes the judges of India, Guinea, Mina, and Brazil should recognize, and where certain types of cases are to be tried. A law of 1557 limits the jurisdiction of @capitães in Brazil (f. 90r). A long section (ff. 138r-140v) prohibits and sets penalties for the sale of gold and silver outside Portugal and its dominions. Brazil is mentioned four times in Parte 4, Tit. 21, which deals with exiles (ff. 175r-178v). There is another brief mention on ff. 201v-202r, which requires all those embarking for Portuguese dominions to confess and take communion. There are also references to other Portuguese dominions: e.g., a law of 1555 forbidding export of shoes to India (ff. 140v-141r), and one of 1519 requiring that those exiled to Africa be given two different places of exile, because when only one was given the exile often had to wait a long time for a ship to depart (f. 175v). A section on prostitutes forbids them to work outside brothels, and lays down strict penalties in particular for those who do so in São Tomé, off the west coast of Africa. Also, prostitutes deported from São Tomé are forbidden to go to the Congo, and captains of ships are to be fined if they take them aboard (ff. 170r-171r, laws of 1521-59). Other interesting sections include one dealing with the behavior of slaves: they are forbidden to carry weapons unless accompanied by their master, they are not to be left alone in Lisbon overnight, they are not to indulge in gambling or dancing, and they are not to meet in groups (ff. 121r-122v, laws of 1521-59). A law of 1568 prohibited the sale of bread to any carriers who might take it abroad (f. 149r). Two long sections deal with coinage: laws of 1541 to 1564 assign penalties for making counterfeit coins, and give the exchange rate for foreign coinage (ff. 150r-153r); laws of 1550 to 1560 assign values to various coins minted in Portugal and Spain. Laws of 1557 to 1563 set out the penalties for those who fail to pay money owed to the Crown (ff. 190v-193v). Duarte Nunes de Leão (ca. 1530-1608), whose name appears on the title page as Duarte Nunez de Lião (which is sometimes also given as Liam), historian, philologist, geographer and jurisconsult, was born at Évora and studied civil law at Coimbra. He eventually rose to the position of judge of the Casa da Supplicação (appeal tribunal). Among Nunes de Lião's other works on Portuguese history and the Portuguese language are @Orthographia da lingua portuguesa (Lisbon, 1576), @Origem da lingua portuguesa (Lisbon, 1606), @Chronicas dos Reis de Portugal (Lisbon, 1600), and @Descripção do Reino de Portugal (Lisbon, 1610). Antonio Gonçalvez, who printed the @Leis extravagantes, is best known as the printer of the first edition of the @Lusiadas in 1572. Anninger notes a second edition of the present work, published by Gonçalvez with the same date on the title, but with the text completely reset. @Provenance: Victor M. d'Avila Perez was one of the half dozen or so most important Portuguese book collectors of the twentieth century. His sale catalogue consisted of 8962 lots, sold in six parts, each with a number of sessions, from 30 October 1939 to 29 April 1940. J. Pinto Ferreira, Portuguese army officer, was a distinguished book collector who had significant Camoneana and much on the Restauração, as well as a trove of other books on Portuguese military history. *** King Manuel 120.

        La Biblia, que es, los sacros libros del Vieio y Nuevo Testamento. Transladada en Espanol [par Cassiodoro de Reina]. Mit einer Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titelblatt und 2 Textholzschnitten.

      ohne Verlag [d. i. Samuel Apiarius für Thomas Guarin 1569] 1622., Ohne Ort [d. i. Basel] - Titelblatt, 1 unbedrucktes Blatt, 14 Blatt, 1438 Spalten (= 722 Seiten), 544 Spalten (= 272 Seiten), 508 [vielmehr: 506] Spalten (= 254 Seiten), 1 Blatt Errores mit der Druckangabe: "Anno des Senor M. D. LXIX. en Septiembre." Pergamentband der Zeit mit eingeschlagenen Deckelkanten und verblaßtem altem, handschriftlichem Rückentitel. Das Titelblatt mit zwei alten Namenszügen "GWReischach" und "Juan Paulo Wolzogen" und handschriftlicher Widmung: "Dieses ererbte Buch gebe meinen Hochzuverehrenden Herrn Pfarrer Magister Kellebenzen zu einem angedenken. [?], den 22ten November 1771. W. Reischach, Cammerhl. Obrist & chev. de los [.?]." Es handelt sich um die Titelauflage der ersten vollständigen Übersetzung der Bibel ins Spanische, wegen der Druckermarke auf dem Titelblatt, die einen Bären beim Plündern eines Bienenstocks zeigt, auch "Bärenbibel" genannt. Übersetzer ist der ehemalige Mönch und spanische Reformator Cassiodoro de Reina (ca. 1520-1594), der sich dem Protestantismus anschloß und 1557 vor der Inquisition nach England floh. In London betreute er, von Königin Elisabeth I. besoldet, als Prediger die protestantische Flüchtlingsgemeinde der spanischen Emigranten, mußte aber, der Sodomie verdächtig, das Land verlassen und gelangte über die Niederlande nach Straßburg, wo er mit dem Rektor Johannes Sturm in Verbindung trat. Später ließ er sich in Basel nieder. Seine in 12jähriger Arbeit entstandene Bibelübersetzung wurde dort von Thomas Guarin und Samuel Apiarius unter der Druckaufsicht Reinas in einer Auflage von 2600 Exemplaren gedruckt. Sie erschien mit einer lateinischen Widmungsvorrede Sturms und einer umfangreichen "Amonestacion del interprete," in der sich Reina als "Catholico" bezeichnet und sein Vorgehen als Übersetzer erläutert. Infolge der hohen Auflage - 1622 waren noch immer Exemplare vorhanden - gibt es 5 Varianten, die sich lediglich durch das zu diesem Zeitpunkt erneuerte Titelblatt unterscheiden (sogen. Titelauflagen). Unser Exemplar - wie meist - ohne die 4 Blatt Annotaciones am Schluß. Der Einband angestaubt und etwas fleckig, die textilen Schließbänder fehlen. Die Innengelenke aufgeplatzt, die Bindung des Buchblocks insgesamt jedoch fest. Die Innendeckel jeweils mit kleinen Wurmgängen, der Buchblock jedoch nicht betroffen. Die ersten 130 Blätter und das Neue Testament an den Seitenrändern jeweils mit schwachem altem Wasserrand, der sich nur anfangs und dann erst wieder gegen Ende bis in den Text ausdehnt. Trotz dieser etwas stärkeren Gebrauchsspuren handelt es sich um ein insgesamt ordentliches Exemplar der seltenen ersten spanischen Bibel. - This is one of only 2600 copies of the first complete Spanish translation of the Bible, printed at Basel, Switzerland, in 1569 and sold with a new titlepage in 1622. Due to the woodcut printing mark of this titlepage, that shows a bear robbing a beehive, it is also known as the "Bear-Bible." It took the former monk and Spanish protestant reformist Cassiodoro de Reina 12 years to translate the Bible into the Spanish language. In his "Amonestacion del interprete" Reina speaks of himself nevertheless as "Catholico." This is one of the 5 existing variations, that just show a different titlepage, and - as usually - lacks the 4 leaves "Annotaciones" at the end of the text. The volume has been bound in parchment and the cover is a little dusty and shows some stains. The inner hinges are cracked but the binding is still tight. The boards show some little wormholes at the interior, the first 130 leaves and the Nuevo Testamento have old water-spots at the margin, which run into the text only at the beginning and the end of the book. There are a private dedication in German from 1771 on the first blank page and two old names on the title-page. In spite of these traces of use this is an overall good copy of the first complete Spanish translation of the Bible. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Thick 4to, contemporary brown calf with decorative crest on covers, neatly re-cased and re-cornered in similar leather. London: Richardum Totellum, 1569. First edition. "The first printed edition of the entire work was published by Richard Tottell in 1569, with a preface by one T.N. (whose identity has never been determined), in which credit is taken for a careful recension of the text"--DNB. Errors in foliation: leaf 362 is misnumbered 360; 439 is misnumbered 437; 173 and 174 are omitted in the numbering. Occasional staining in the gutter margins, but otherwise a remarkably clean, tight and full-margined copy. Near fine. [The Laws and Customs of England] is the first modern treatise on English law. A systematic work, divided into five well-indexed books, it emphasizes the separation of procedural and substantive matters and also cites cases as sources of at least intellectual, if not formal, authority. In Maitland's words, Bracton's Legibus is "the crown and flower of English medieval jurisprudence" and "by far the greatest of our medieval law books." Sweet & Maxwell adds that it "is distinguished by rich casuistic details, and by the careful reproduction of the judicial decisions on individual cases of law.": Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 1:51(6). --STC 3475; PMM 89; BEALE T323; ESTC S122159. Very scarce and desireable -- OCLC lists only 20 copies, including those at Yale, Harvard, University of Pernnsylvania, Stanford, and Bibliotheque Nationale de France.

        1569 1st ed Catholic Doctrine CHARLEMAGNE Alcuin of York & Paul the Deacon

      Published: Coloniae : Apud Maternum Cholinum, MDLXIX [1569] - 1569 1st ed Catholic Doctrine CHARLEMAGNE Alcuin of York & Paul the Deacon Fantastic Contents / VERY RARE! compare@$1,500 An absolutely incredible 16th-century collection of theological teachings from the most learned men during the reign of Charlemagne beginning with Alcuin. This collection was ordered by Charlemagne and was used for the next 1,000 years as the basis of breviary readings. – The original work is ascribed to both Alcuin and Paul the Deacon. Paul the Deacon (c. 720 –799), also known as Paulus Diaconus, Warnefridus was a Benedictine monk, scribe, and historian of the Lombards. Alcuin of York (c. 735 – 804) — also called Ealhwine, Albinus or Flaccus — was an English scholar, ecclesiastic, poet and teacher from York, Northumbria. He was born around 735 and became the student of Archbishop Ecgbert at York. At the invitation of Charlemagne, he became a leading scholar and teacher at the Carolingian court, where he remained a figure in the 780s and '90s. He wrote many theological and dogmatic treatises, as well as a few grammatical works and a number of poems. "The most learned man anywhere to be found", according to Einhard's Life of Charlemagne (ca. 817-833), he is considered among the most important architects of the Carolingian Renaissance. Charlemagne (/748 – 814), also known as Charles the Great or Charles I, was King of the Franks. He united most of Western Europe during the early Middle Ages and laid the foundations for modern France and Germany. We find other examples of this same book for sale elsewhere for over $1,550!

        L'Adone, poema del Cavalier Marino: con gli argomenti del Conte Fortuniano Sanvitale, e l'allegorie di Don Lorenzo Scoto.

      Giambattista Marino (Giovan Battista Marino, 1569-1625) was => Italy's greatest Baroque poet. His extravagant style became known as Marinism, or Seicentismo, inspiring a century of lyricists known as Marinisti. However the poet's reputation suffered in the 18th and 19th centuries when critics dismissed many fruits of the Baroque period as "all form no substance" (Guardiani, 74). It was not until the mid-20th century that Baroque literature was reevaluated and Marino's work was newly admired by scholars. First published at Paris in 1623 and => placed on the Index in 1627, L'Adone is a complicated narrative based on the myth of Venus and Adonis from Ovid's Metamorphoses, combined with other myths and passages imitating Dante, Ariosto, Tasso, and French writers. These elements are intertwined with novelties, including a lyrical autobiography modeled on Ovid's (canto IX, 59-91), and a eulogy for Marino's contemporary => Galileo and his telescope (canto X, 42-47). Composed of over 5,000 octaves in 20 canti -- almost 41,000 verses, Marino's complicated, ornate poem is => one of the longest epics ever written in Italian. The edition in hand is printed in roman and italic, with factotum initials and a handful of woodcut tailpieces. The title-page in the first volume is printed in red and black, and black only in the second, with both volumes featuring the printer's device of an armillary sphere: mark of the Elzevirs, who printed the 1678 edition in Amsterdam?

        Traicté de la conformité du langage françois avec le Grec.

      Par Robert Estienne, A Paris 1569 - In-8 de (36)-171 pp., maroquin rouge, dos orné à nerfs, encadrement de trois filets dorés sur les plats, dentelle intérieure, tranches dorées sur marbrure (Thibaron). Deuxième édition du grand traité d'Henri Estienne pour la défense de la langue française, premier ouvrage qu'il écrivit en français. Son propos est de montrer la supériorité du français sur toutes les autres langues, le grec mis à part. Henri Estienne n'en excèpte même pas le latin qu'il juge moins riche et moins souple que le français ; il a sur ce point une véritable doctrine qu'il a ramenée à un syllogisme rigoureux : 1° il n'y a pas eu et il n'y aura jamais de plus belle langue que le grec, 2° or, le français est de toutes les autres langues celle qui se rapproche le plus du grec, 3° donc, le français est supérieur à toute les langues modernes. Bel exemplaire parfaitement établi par Thibaron. Brunet II, 1075 ; Renouard, 171/4 ; En français dans le texte, 62 (pour l'édition originale) ; Schreiber, 240. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Delle nozze: trattato del Fausto da Longiano, in cui si leggono i riti, i costumi, gl'instituti, le cerimonie, et le solennità di diversi antichi popoli, ende si sono tratti molti problemi; & aggiuntiui, i precetti matrimoniali di Plutarco.

      First of two editions (second was 1569) of Fausto's study of marriage, divorce, and the status of women in the Classic era in Rome, India, Arabia, Persia, Macedonia, Greece, and Germany. Topics discussed include dowries, privileges of married women, customs in selecting wives, marriage rites and institutions, methods of solemnizing marriage, duties of wives, and adultery. Fausto, by turns a soldier, lawyer, traveller, friend of Andrea Palladio, and member of the Academia dei Constanti, augments his text with abstracted portions of Plutarch's Conjugalia praecepta. The work was written in commemoration of the marriage of Virginia Fieschi (daughter of Ettore Fieschi, Count of Lavagna and Savignone) to Jacopo VI Appiani d?Aragona (Prince of Piombino). The printer, Pietrasanta, begins the volume with a handsome title-page defined by a large woodcut architectural border, then prints the text in italic with a scattering of 8- and 10-line historiated woodcut initials that => bear looking at. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only three copies in U.S. libraries.

        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).

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]

Grosse : ?[. Im Jahre 781] traf Karl in Parma mit dem gelehrten Angelsachsen Alkuin zusammen und lud ihn an seinen Hof ein. Aus Italien folgten ihm bei seiner Heimkehr der gelehrte Diakon Paulus und der Grammatiker Peter von Pisa. So bildete sich am Hofe Karls jener zugleich gelehrte und intime Kreis, den man seinen gelehrten Hofstaat und auch wohl seine Hofschule genannt hat, dessen Mitgliedern Alkuin selbst gelegentlich den Namen von Akademikern gab. [.] Im literarischen Verkehr musste die Etikette der Gemütlichkeit weichen, und um hierin nicht behindert zu werden, wurde jedem sein eigener Klubname [sic!] zugeteilt, nach einer Sitte, die Alkuin wahrscheinlich aus England mitgebracht hatte. Der Kaiser selbst hiess David, Alkuin Flaccus, Einhard Beseleel, Angilbert Homer, Wizo Candidus, Arno Aquila, die Äbtissin Gisela, Karls Schwester, wurde zur Lucia, seine Base Gundrad zur Eulalia und seine Tochter Rotruda zur Columba. [.] Die Seele dieses Kreises war Alkuin. [.] Seine Schriften umfassten alle Gebiete der damaligen kirchlich-klösterlichen Gelehrsamkeit [.].? (etc;, A.

        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).
