I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1569 LAW Corpus Juris Civilis Justinian Codex with Medieval Accursius Commentary HUGE & Beautiful FOLIO in Vellum / See photos 2 famous tomes of Justinian including works on law and commentary on Accursius. The Corpus Juris (or Iuris) Civilis ("Body of Civil Law") is the modern name for a collection of fundamental works in jurisprudence, issued from 529 to 534 by order of Justinian I, Eastern Roman Emperor. It is also sometimes referred to as the Code of Justinian, although this name belongs more properly to the part titled Codex Justinianus. Justinian I (c. 482 - 565), sometimes known as Justinian the Great, was a Byzantine (East Roman) emperor from 527 to 565. During his reign, Justinian sought to revive the empire's greatness and reconquer the lost western half of the historical Roman Empire. Accursius (c. 1182 - 1263) was an Roman jurist. He is notable for his organization of the glosses, the medieval comments on Justinian's codification of Roman law, the Corpus Juris Civilis. He was not proficient in the classics, but he was called "the Idol of the Jurisconsults". We do not find another example of this printing for sale worldwide, but we find similar 16th century editions for sale at upwards of $3,500 Main author: Justinian Title: Digestum vetus (Infortiatum; Digestum novum); seu Pandectarum juris civilis tomus primus (secundus; tertius).

Woodcut printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. Woodcut portrait of the author on the verso of the title-page, and nineteen full-page woodcut illustrations in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. Traces of ties. Smooth spine, at the top the number '1440' inked on a paper lettering-piece, and below the early shelfmark 'N 521' on another paper label. A very fine copy with wide margins.Provenance: Count Thun-Hohenstein Tetschen (ex-libris on the front flyleaf). The first edition of the definitive and significantly enlarged version of one of the most important Renaissance treatises on agriculture, presented here in a fine copy in its original vellum binding. Gallo's work had first appeared in Brescia in 1564 under the title Le dieci giornate ('The ten days'), comprising only ten Books, it was reprinted in Venice by Niccolò Bevilacqua in 1566 in an augmented edition expanded to include thirteen Books. In 1569 Percacino published separately the Books 14-20, before issuing the complete text in twenty books or Giornate in the same year. The work is written in the form of a dialogue between two gentlemen from Brescia, Giovan Battista Avogadro, owner of an estate in Borgo Poncarale (as with the author), and Vincenzo Maggio, his guest. In the eleventh Book, dedicated to breeding and dairy farming, Gallo introduces the character of Scaltrito, an expert 'Malghese' who buys hay for Avogadro.

Giulio Giulio Ballino (Ballino)
Venice Bolognino Zaltieri 1569. 4° (272x208 mm). [104] leaves. Fifty-two bifolium sheets, folded and bound at centre, the first containing the title-page with printer's device, and author's dedication to Vincenzo Pellegrini; the second with an engraved map of Europe (Girolamo Olgiato, 1567), and an engraved map of Eastern Europe (Domenico Zenoi, Venice 1567). The other fifty bifolia with double-page etched views of cities, with accompanying explanatory text printed on the related versos. Roman, italic, and Greek type. Contemporary vellum, smooth spine with inked title. A few wormholes and stains to the covers and flyleaves. An unsophisticated, wide-margined copy. A few wormholes to the first two leaves of text, not affecting any letters; gutter previously reinforced, lower portion of the title-page restored, without any loss. Some staining and fingermarks. A blank leaf has been inserted after the first two leaves, on the recto of which a contemporary hand has written an index to the plates; at the end of the volume a folding leaf (483x372 mm) has been inserted with a contemporary sepia drawing of Palmanova, the construction of which had begun in 1593. This plan is mentioned in the manuscript index and was thus presumably inserted and maybe drawn by the same hand that provided the numbering of the plates, starting with the first city view (Venice) but wrongly leaping from no. 71 to no. 73 (the index is correct).Rare first – and only – part published of the first Italian city atlas, which inaugurated a significant new movement in Italian cartography and the relate … [Click Below for Full Description]

PARACELSUS
334 (i.e. 336), [64] pp. 8vo, cont. richly blind-stamped vellum over boards, central panel on upper cover stamped in gold (now oxidized) with the arms of the city of Kuttenberg (today's Kutna Hora) & the name of "Georgius [Polenta] a Sudetis," dated 1569, ties gone. Basel: P. Perna, 1568. Second edition and a very lovely copy in an attractive contemporary binding with an interesting provenance; Sudhoff considered this to be one of the most important of Paracelsus' writings. The book is divided into two parts. The first - the "Philosophiae et Medicinae Universae Compendium" - is a work on medical chemistry. Paracelsus is important for applying chemical techniques to pharmacy and therapeutics; he taught physicians to substitute chemical therapeutics for alchemy. The second part - "De Vita Longa" - contains one of the earliest biographies and bibliographies of Paracelsus, compiled by Jacques Gohory. The rest of this part contains Paracelsus' summary of his philosophy of medicine as well as an extended commentary on the text by Gohory (1520-76), who was important as an early disseminator of Paracelsian ideas in France (see D.S.B., V, pp. 447-48). The Preface contains biographical notes on Paracelsus, a letter from Erasmus to Paracelsus, and Paracelsus' epitaph. New to this edition is the 64-page "Apologia Gerardi Dorn" and Gohory's response at end. There is an interesting discussion of epilepsy. PROVENANCE: Georgius Polenta von Sudetis, a resident of Kuttenberg, was rector of the medical faculty of Charles University in Prague and a much-consulted doctor. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Martino ROTA (Sebenico 1520 - Venezia 1583)
Bulino, 1569, firmato e datato in lastra in alto al centro. Da un soggetto di Tiziano. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con la firma. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata alla linea marginale, tracce di piega centrale verticale, difetti minori perfettamente restaurati, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera deriva dal dipinto di Tiziano, andato perduto e noto attraverso una replica della scuola conservata all'Escorial. Il soggetto viene per prima interpretato a stampa da Giulio Bonasone, del quale questa di Rota è una fedele traduzione, in controparte. L'esemplare ante litteram, di primo stato, è citato da Zani. Tra i seguaci tecnicamente più dotati di Marcantonio, Rota fu uno degli artisti che esportò al nord lo stile e la tecnica italiana dell'arte della stampa. Stando agli indirizzi riportati su molte delle sue lastre, era nato a Sebenico, in Dalmazia, la stessa regione natale di Schiavone. Tuttavia la vita dell'artista, prima della sua comparsa a Roma, nel 1540, come incisore di riproduzioni, è pressoché ignota. Le prime stampe da lui realizzate coniugavano la maniera raffinata e sistematica di Marcantonio con un'abilità in continua crescita. Nell'Urbe, Rota lavorò anche con l'incisore fiammingo Cornelis Cort, appropriandosi spesso della sua maniera più rustica per attenuare l'effetto scultoreo che Marcantonio aveva raggiunto. Inoltre, Rota realizzò incisioni dalle opere di Taddeo Zuccaro, Luca Penni e Tiziano, pubblicate da Antonio Lafrery e dai suoi successori Duchetti e Guarinoni, i più importanti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Either 4, or 14 leaves missing; the 14 plates provided in facsimile on similar weave paper (acid free), bound into a gathering (8vo) and hand sewn. Binding has shelf wear, edge wear, chip at top of spine, and a little cracking at the joints. Several exlibris removed, leaving ghosting on endpapers. Still, one ex libris, and several bookseller notes. Title page plate cutout and remounted on matching paper. Some repairs to pages edges (fills). Horse plate still has edge wear, right side (see photos). Occasional mark and/or spot. Bookseller writing on rear pastedown. The first known catalogue of brands (agriculture). The brands cataloged here are applied to horses, mainly in Italy, and mostly of the rich and/or royal. This work includes a recognizable 16th century plate showing the names of various ailments of parts of the horse body, corresponding to an index. This book seldom reaches the market. Princeton's Rare Books and Special Collections refers to their copy as a "highlight". In an article entitled "Brand Books in the Princeton Collections of Western Americana" (William S. Reese), the author writes: "The earliest example known is the Libro de marchi de caualli . . . (Venice, 1569), a copy of which is in the Princeton collection. Although the plates are elegant examples of Venetian engraving, the format of the book anticipates later developments in its duodecimo size, intended for pocketsized portability in the field, and its clear presentation of the branded patterns.

An extraordinary, complete copy. Clean and crisp. Full calf binding, gilt edges, hand marbled endpapers. La Biblia del Oso or the "Bear Bible," is the earliest edition of the complete Bible in Castilian Spanish. The translator was Cassisoro de Reina (ca. 1520-94) of Seville, who fled the Spanish Inquisition in 1557 and preached to Spanish Protestants in London, Antwerp, and Frankfurt-am-Main.

Reina's "Bear bible" derives it nickname from the famous woodcut on the title, which shows a bear helping himself to honey from a hive. The bear was the emblem of Apiarius's native city state, Bern, and the bees are a reference to his family name.

Biblia Sacra
1569. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An extremely rare, 16th-century Biblia Sacra published by Joannes Tornaesius in Lugduni. In 1554, first published an example of the Latin Bible based on those of Robert Stephanus (Estienne). This Bible was the very first and earliest which contains the illustrations of Bernard Salomon, which are now referred to as 'le petit Bernard.' This 1569 printing of the same Bible features the expected title page device which "represents a Sower with the legend 'son art en Dieu.'" (D&M 6138). Both Jean Tornaesium (Jean de Tournes) and Bernard Salomon worked in Lyon (Lugduni), in the mid-16th-century producing emblem books containing the art of Salomon. Salomon's work have been known to inspire entire schools of art, including the School of Fontainbleau, in which his small scale designs were important to the art. [Attributes: First Edition]

When ordering from the US, parcels may be subject to import tax and duty charges, which the buyer is responsible to pay. 1569 LAW Corpus Juris Civilis Justinian Codex with Medieval Accursius Commentary HUGE & Beautiful FOLIO in Vellum / See photos 2 famous tomes of Justinian including works on law and commentary on Accursius. The Corpus Juris (or Iuris) Civilis ("Body of Civil Law") is the modern name for a collection of fundamental works in jurisprudence, issued from 529 to 534 by order of Justinian I, Eastern Roman Emperor. It is also sometimes referred to as the Code of Justinian, although this name belongs more properly to the part titled Codex Justinianus. Justinian I (c. 482 - 565), sometimes known as Justinian the Great, was a Byzantine (East Roman) emperor from 527 to 565. During his reign, Justinian sought to revive the empire's greatness and reconquer the lost western half of the historical Roman Empire. Accursius (c. 1182 - 1263) was an Roman jurist. He is notable for his organization of the glosses, the medieval comments on Justinian's codification of Roman law, the Corpus Juris Civilis. He was not proficient in the classics, but he was called "the Idol of the Jurisconsults". We do not find another example of this printing for sale worldwide, but we find similar 16th century editions for sale at upwards of $3,500 Main author: Justinian Title: Digestum vetus (Infortiatum; Digestum novum); seu Pandectarum juris civilis tomus primus (secundus; tertius).

PORTA, Giambattista della (ca. 1535-1615).
Apud Gulielmum Rovillium, 1569. Small 8vo. [1]-344 pp., [4] ff. Index; marginal worm trails showing on the final 4 leaves. Somewhat modern quarter calf, and endleaves. Very good. RARE. Very early edition [Another edition of 1561 printed in Lyon by Roullius [283 pages], making this 1569 issue the second printed in Lyons, as determined via WorldCat.]. Porta's work was first issued in four books, 1558, and expanded up to XX books (1589), written first at the age of fifteen. Dedicated to Philip II of Spain. "From 1574 to 1580 Della Porta was repeatedly interrogated by inquisitors, and the publication of his writings was prohibited. Jean Bodin, in his Demonomanie des sorciers (1580), accuses Della Porta of being a 'poisonous sorcerer' and goes on to attack Agrippa. Among the various followers of Paracelsus, Jacques Gohory, denounced Della Porta. As Massimo L. Bianchi has recently demonstrated, Della Porta was up to date on Paracelsus' ideas, although perhaps only through his followers. As if this were not enough, Thomas Erastus, a Protestant critic of Paracelsism, spoke out against Della Porta as well - which leads one to believe that the last two accusations were also reactions against his chemical experiments. This onslaught forced Della Porta, at the height of his fame, to cease published for several years." - Zambelli, p. 28. "Natural Magic was revised and considerably expanded throughout the author's lifetime." The text contents include: I: natural phenomena; II: medicinal preparations; III: alchemy, metallurgy, glass; IV: optics, a chapter on the camera obscura (the firs … [Click Below for Full Description]

Typographic music throughout: 5-line staves in red, each with a line of printed text below. Title woodcut of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, printer's woodcut device on recto of last leaf, woodcut initials. A modest copy: washed and with tears with loss to ff. 104 and 106, repaired tear to f. 103. Modern parchment over boards. Provenance: 18th-century (?) inscription on final leaf, "Díos me favorezca."*** A portable volume of chant for Cistercian monks. "A small portable liturgical book of the Western Church, containing the chants, rubrics and collects appropriate to liturgical processions ... [the processional] is of particular musical interest since it contains antiphons, verses, rhymed Preces and even polyphonic chants that do not occur in other liturgical books.... Each of the religious orders imposed a processional of its own, and these were propagated through manuscripts and subsequently in printed editions. The processionals of most of the orders have remained substantially identical with the originals through the history of each order" (Oxford Music Online, art. M. Huglo). An exception was the Cistercian processional: in the 12th century the Cistercians carried out a reform of liturgy and chant, and reduced the number of processions to two: thus the earliest Cistercian processional manuscripts contain only the chants for Candelmas (2 February) and Palm Sunday. Over time more processional chants were added to the repertory, for the feast of the Ascension, the Ass … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original Biblia del Oso de 1569, Basilea Swiss, esta es la primera edición de la Biblia al castellano. En excelente estado de conservacion, completa y en un magnifico estado. Solo se imprimieron en 1569, 260 ejemplares. Rarisimo ejemplar, practicamente imposible de encontrar. Cuando uno estudia su historia, las numerosas persecusiones y obstáculos que tuvo Casiodoro de Reina en traducir esta bella Biblia, a uno no le queda otro remedio que concluir que esta clásica obra no es otra cosa sino un mismo milagro de Dios. La Biblia tiene todos sus grabados y paginas. La Biblia de Casiodoro de Reina (Nacido en Montemolín hacia 1520 - fallecido en Francfort en 1594) es la primera Biblia completa impresa en lengua española (y también, es la única traducción cristiana con tanto arraigo para las mayorías hispanas, en existencia desde 1569 hasta el día de hoy), pues en la mal llamada Biblia de Cipriano de Valera (Amsterdam 1602), el nuevo editor Valera se limitó, como abajo explicaremos, a cambiar el orden de los libros y a añadir o quitar notas marginales, con alteraciones cuantitativamente mínimas del texto bíblico traducido por Casiodoro, cuyo nombre viene además ostentosamente silenciado en la portada. Este silencio se explica por la enemistad de más de treinta años que el superortodoxo calvinista Cipriano de Valera sintió por su antiguo maestro en el convento jerónimo de San Isidro del Campo extramuros de Sevilla, por haberse negado Casiodoro a someter su traducción de la Biblia a la censura de los eclesiásticos de Ginebra (es decir, Calvino y los suyos) .

[First Bible in Spanish, the Bear Bible].
First edition, very rare, and a fine copy of the controversial earliest edition of the "complete Bible in Spanish"(Darlow and Moule); translated by monk Cassiodoro de Reina (c.1520-1594), a convert into Protestantism, using other sources than Saint Jerome's Vulgate, Greek and Hebrew manuscripts, Ferrara's 1553 version, amongst others. Known in Spanish as the "Biblia del Oso" for the peculiar vignette portraying a bear in seek of honey on title, it was an edition of singular importance for Spanish history, the country being submersed in the tight vigilance of the Inquisition, weary of all new ideas, and of course zealous of protecting Spanish citizens of the heretic views of the Reform, which was growing rapidly in Europe. The reason or the book's rarity is possibly the destruction of copies by the Inquisition, who banned the translation. Reina escaped Spain c.1557 persecuted by the Inquisition, denounced as a heretic for converting into Protestantism; he preached to Protestants in London, Antwerp, and Frankfurt, and started the translation shortly after fleeing Spain, basing the Old Testament after the Ferrara version and the Sanctes Pagninus translation. In 1567 Reina published Sanctae Inquisitionis Hispanicae Artes, condemning the methods employed by the Holy Inquisition. The New Testament is based on the Greek; he expected to use a version to be printed in Paris in 1567, which was suppressed. The printing started in Basel around 1568, only to be finished in 1569 in it's first issue, easily recognized by the title page, featuring a bear climbing a tree in se … [Click Below for Full Description]

Franco, Francisco
First editions; the book on snow is the first work dealing with the use of snow for gastronomic and medicinal purposes, and the convenience of cooling beverages (amongst them wine). This seems to be the first European work on the subject, which was later on dealt with by Nicolas Monardes; the author refers to the sources of the recipes and techniques employed, such as Razes and Avicenna: "La costumbre de enfriar bebidas con nieve parece tener, a efectos de la civilización occidental, un origen mesopotámico. Las técnicas relacionadas con el enfriamiento de las bebidas, y con ellas las recetas para la confección de sorbetes llegaron a la península a través de la cultura musulmana, sobre todo una vez que afamados médicos como Razés o Avicena recuperaron la tradición galénica del uso mode- rado de la nieve frente a la prohibición estricta de la doctrina hipocrática." The first work, by the same author (Jativa-born doctor to King John III of Portugal and cathedratic of the University of Seville), is a series of recommendations for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the pestilence, a generic title which refers to most contagious diseases; it also deals with the therapeutic properties of bread, meat, fish, wine and beer, and naturally medicinal plants and the preparation of medicines. A whole chapter is dedicated to beer (ff. xlvii). Rare, no copy has appeared on the market according to RBH, and only three institutional copies appear to exist in the United States (Harvard, NLM, and California), a handful of copies in Spain, and two in France.

Nicolo Nelli
Nicolo Nelli, Venice, 1569. The first known catalogue of agricultural brands. The brands cataloged here were applied to horses of the rich and royal, mainly in Italy. About this Edition - This copy has 72 brands and a horse. There are two variants in the bibliographies, one with 76 plates and one with 87 plates. I produced a facsimile gathering of the fourteen plates the Austrian copy has, which mine does not. Watermark Verification - In my copy are several examples of an anchor within a ring, and a countermark over three rings. As recorded in the Gravell watermark database (record "anchor.510.1", among others) these watermarks indicate the paper is from Venice in the mid-16th century. Rarity - This book seldom reaches the market. Princeton's Rare Books and Special Collections refers to their copy as a "highlight". In an article entitled "Brand Books in the Princeton Collections of Western Americana" (William S. Reese), the author writes: "The earliest example known is the Libro de marchi de caualli . . .

Although the plates are elegant examples of Venetian engraving, the format of the book anticipates later developments in its duodecimo size, intended for pocketsized portability in the field, and its clear presentation of the branded patterns. Entirely devoted to horses, it always illustrates a primary brand, and often a secondary one to be found on the opposite flank or some other part of the horse. Most of the brands seem to be modified versions of family symbols, or in some cases simplified versions of coat … [Click Below for Full Description]
