NORTON, Thomas
London: Imprinted by Henrie Bynneman, for Lucas Harrison, 1569. London: Imprinted by Henrie Bynneman, for Lucas Harrison,, 1569. Drawen into Rebellion by the Earles Northumberland and Westmoreland. Small octavo (133 x 89 mm), pp. [56]. 19th-century red straight-grain morocco, cathedral style blind decoration, spine lettered in gilt. Engraved bookplates of Mathew Wilson facing that of Frances Mary Richardson Currer on front endpapers, leather book label of Huth overlapping head of Wilson's; modern collector's label of Howard Knohl to rear pastedown. Closely trimmed, some side notes and headlines cropped, generally clean, with binder's blanks added at end to give bulk to the volume. One of three issues published in 1569, this polemical work was published at the height of the Revolt of the Northern Earls, the unsuccessful attempt by Catholic nobles to depose Elizabeth and replace her with Mary, Queen of Scots. The pamphleteer and lawyer Thomas Norton (1530/32-1584) was no relation to the prominent rebel leader Richard Norton (d. 1585), the staunchly Catholic sheriff of Yorkshire, who plotted to free Mary from captivity in York. With the bookplate of Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861), "England's earliest female bibliophile" (ODNB), whose famous library at Eshton Hall, Yorkshire, Dibdin judged to place her "at the head of all female collectors in Europe" (ibid.). Eshton Hall itself was built in 1825-7 by architect George Webster of Kendal in an Elizabethan revival style for Mathew Wilson. The book would have been of particular local antiquarian interest to Currer.

Paul the Deacon (c. 720 -799), also known as Paulus Diaconus, Warnefridus was a Benedictine monk, scribe, and historian of the Lombards.

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".

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]

1569 BEAR BIBLE; First Complete Bible Printed in Spanish. Formerly owned by Oscar B. Cintas, Cuban Ambassador to the United States. LA BIBLIA, QUE ES, LOS SACROS LIBROS DEL VIEEIO Y NUEVO TESTAMENTO. TRASLADADA EN ESPAÑOL. [BASEL: THOMAS GUARINUS AND SAMUEL APIARIUS?], 1569 Title-page with woodcut printer's device of a bear cub raiding a beehive, one full-page woodcut plate and one woodcut text vignette, numerous woodcut initials. 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. The publisher and printer of his bible are not named within the book, but the copy Reina presented to the University of Basel in 1569 was inscribed with the name of the printer Thomas Guarinus and the printer's device is that which appeared in other books printed by the Apiarius family of Bern. 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. Other works printed by Apianus with this device also include the legend from Psalm 119: "how sweet are they words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

TRASLADADA EN ESPAÑOL. [BASEL: THOMAS GUARINUS AND SAMUEL APIARIUS], 1569. T 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. The publisher and printer of his bible are not named within the book, but the copy Reina presented to the University of Basel in 1569 was inscribed with the name of the printer Thomas Guarinus and the printer's device is that which appeared in other books printed by the Apiarius family of Bern. 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. Condition Complete, all pages original (no facsimiles!). Authentic. Nice margins, no text clipping anywhere. Very occasional damp staining, foxing and browning in a just a few spots. Also has some hand written annotations on a few pages.

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).

HENTENIUS, Johannes
1569. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. An extremely rare 1569 Bible published in Antwerp by the Plantin Press. This Latin edition comes from the famous Johann Hentenius Louvain translation. This edition was printed in two column format along and features the Apocrypha. What makes this Bible even more extraordinary is the 16th century contemporary binding. Both the front and the back board feature blind-stamps with images of Martin Luther, John Hus, Erasmus, and Philip Melanchthon. We've never seen anything quite like it! According to Darlow and Moule, "In 1559 appeared the first edition of the Latin Bible published by Christopher Plantin, the eminent Antwerp printer. It was a reprint in octavo of the Louvain Bible." (D&M 6141 note). [Attributes: First Edition]

After writing "scathingly of other previous abridgments of chronicles" in his preface, there ensued a 'literary quarrel' between Grafton and historian John Stow that "represents an early (and illuminating) disagreement between scholarly authors, even though it had its origins as much in the commercial concerns of the initial publishers as in the authors' concerns for their literary 'property'" (DNB). Grafton published at least three separate chronicles of the history of England, the largest and most comprehensive of which being A Chronicle at Large. In a full calf binding.

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]

Salamanca: Juan Baptista de Terranova, 1569. 8vo (140 x 96 mm). [8], 155, [1] leaves. Printed in red and black. 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]

Casiodoro de Reina
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]
