        cum Regulis confectis per Patres a Tridentina Synodo delectos, auctoritate Sanctiss. D. N. Pij IIII, Pont. Max. comprobatus. Cum Appendice in Belgio, ex mandato Regiae Cathol. Maiestatis confecta

      Woodcut printer's device of the golden compass on title. 119 pp. Small 8vo, 18th-cent. Belgian mottled calf (head of spine a little chipped, joints rubbed), sides gilt, spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine (label partly flaked away). Antwerp: C. Plantin, 1570. [as usual, bound after]:PHILIP II, King of Spain. Philippi II. Regis Catholici Edictum De Librorum prohibitorum catalogo observando. Woodcut printer's device of the golden compass on title. 8 unnumbered leaves. Antwerp: C. Plantin, 1570. In the struggle against the rising tide of Protestantism the need for catalogues of forbidden books became obvious. Local authorities in many countries compiled a number of these. The Council of Trent in 1563 laid down the rules to be followed in the future and made an official index, published by order of Pius IV in 1564. Phillip II tried to improve the list by adding a separate list of prohibited books in the Spanish Netherlands. I. First edition of Plantin's important printing of the famous index of prohibited books first published in 1564 as a direct result of the Council of Trent. Following the title and the bull of Pius IV (pp. 3-5), the ten basic rules designed to govern and regulate the activities of publishers and censors are published. Then, starting on page 15, is the list itself of forbidden authors and their books which continues through page 55. The books are classified alphabetically within three groups: authors of whom all works are condemned, authors of whom certain works - or parts of works - are condemned, and anonymous works. In the next section, following a four-page preface, we find on pages 61-117 an extensive appendix of books prohibited in the Spanish Netherlands, including books in French, Flemish, and Spanish. Among them are works by Rabelais and books printed by Plantin himself! The appendix was probably compiled by the Spanish theologian and scholar Benito Arias Montano (1527-98) at the order of the Duke of Alva. Pages 118-19 contain an extract from the bull of Paul V. Plantin shared the lucrative monopoly of printing the Indices of prohibited books with the Brussels printer Michel van Hamont. This monopoly symbolized the good relations the two printers enjoyed with the Spanish authorities. There are two issues of this work published in the same year, one with 112 pages and, as with the present copy, 119 pages. According to Voet, the texts are identical and the priority is uncertain. II. As is often the case, this Index is preceded by the edict (or ordinance) issued in the name of Philip II which serves as a sort of introduction to the Index. It includes instructions on how the Index should be implemented: the listed books had to be burned within three months of the publication of this edict. Very good copies of two important works which are scarce on the market. Contemporary ownership inscription on first title dated 1570 with some additional annotations on verso of final leaf of the Index. With a note on the rear free endpaper stating the book was rebound on 17 August 1756. ? Voet 1445 & 1443.

      Title with astrological diagrams and printed in red & black. Numerous woodcut diagrams in the text & woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. [442] leaves including the three blanks (**6, A8, & Y6). Thick folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over wooden boards (minor foxing, see below for a further description of the binding), orig. clasps & catches. Basel: [S. Apiario] for S. Henricpetri, 1570. First edition and a wonderful copy in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards with the original clasps and catches of one of the first "scientific" books on astrology in which the author used his knowledge of mathematics and astronomy to make predictions. It spawned numerous successors, several of which were very influential in the German Rosicrucian movement. WorldCat locates no copy in the U.S. Pegius (1523-92), a lawyer and astrologer, was counsel to the prince bishop of Salzburg and the author of a number of German-language treatises on various legal matters such as foreclosure auction law and hereditary building rights. This is by far his most important book. In his preface, dedicated to Provost Neuhauser of the monastery of Saint Zeno near Reichenhall in Upper Bavaria, Pegius explains at length his reasons for writing this book. He states that "Raitkunst," (the art of reckoning using arithmetic), "Erdmesserey" (measuring the earth), and "Gestirnenkunst" (the art of the stars) shall be the foundation of learned instruction in astrology. "Pegius' treatise begins with the [mathematical] Four Species before discussing astrology proper, with numerous astronomical interpolations, and ending with sections on chronology and calendar making."-A.D.B., Vol. 25, p. 318 (in trans.). The later years of Pegius' life were not happy. He and his wife began to have visions of the Queen of Sheba who told them local inhabitants of Untersberg near Salzburg had received a prophesy one thousand years ago, that a man named Martin, well-instructed in astronomy and law, would be resurrected and they themselves would be redeemed by his intercession. God sent an angel to Pegius and his wife in March 1581 announcing Pegius was the one spoken of in the prophecy. Pegius' wife was suspected of witchcraft and both husband and wife were incarcerated for life. This has always been considered an important book in German culture; there were facsimile editions published in 1924 and 1977. Binding: Two of the roll stamps are signed: Christ on the Cross (Haebler, Rollen- und Plattenstempel des 16. Jahrhunderts, I, 150.2 and Kyriss in Festschrift Haebler (1937), p. 138.2), plus stamp "MG" (Haebler I, 150.6 and plate I, 25, and again Kyriss in Festschrift Haebler, p. 139.6). Fine fresh copy. Free front endpaper with buyer's entry dated 1596, bought for 2 guilders and 4 kreutzers. ? Lalande, pp. 94-95. Zinner 2526.

Segni di tarlo nelle prime ed ultime carte che toccano il testo, titolo ed ultima carta sporche e con antichi restauri che in parte toccano il testo, per il resto copia più che buona. Rara edizione delle Commedie di Terenzio curata dal filologo francese Vincent Cordé (Vincentius Cordatus) e pubblicata dagli eredi di Federico Torresano (Andrea, Girolamo e Bernardino) con la sottoscrizione &ldquo,Bibliotheca Aldina&rdquo,. Come precisato nella prefazione indirizzata a Girolamo Torresano, Cordé aveva inviato a Parigi a Bernardino Torresano molti dei suoi scritti perché fossero pubblicati, ma quest'ultimo glieli rinviò indietro, invitando il Cordé a rivolgersi ai suoi fratelli tipografi attivi a Venezia. Il commento del Cordé fu quindi stampato nella città lagunare senza grande successo, mentre poco dopo Bernardino decise di lasciare Parigi e fare ritorno a Venezia. Questa edizione, affatto comune, ha la particolarità di riportare in fine, nella pagina opposta a quella che reca la marca tipografica, un poema di dieci versi in lode della celebre insegna aldina (Anchorae Aldinae Venetae): &ldquo,Delphino Veneto circumdatur anchor simplex&hellip,&rdquo,. Questo poema pare essere stato stampato solo in questa occasione. Edit 16, CNCE33996, Renouard, pp. 210-211, nr. 19, Adams, T-364, Ahmanson-Murphy, 1079.

        TEXT FROM A SERMON ON JOHN 1:19 FOR THE FOURTH SUNDAY IN ADVENT

      Central Italy [perhaps Rome], mid-12th century. n. The fine "M" beginning the passage from John here is the type that became the models for humanistic white vine initials in the 15th century in the mistaken belief that the manuscripts in which they were found were of late classical date. The leaf has suffered some from recycling, but it retains much of the grand feeling of the original.. 411 x 259 mm. (16 1/4 x 10 1/4"). Double column, 47 lines of text in a transitional Caroline minuscule. With majuscule rubrics in red and WITH A HANDSOME SEVEN-LINE WHITE VINE INITIAL in red, blue, green, and yellow. Testamenta written across top left column of recto in a 16th century hand, note at bottom of verso indicating that this leaf was used as a wrapper for a collection of documents dated from 15 May 1570 to 18 February 1572. Recto a little yellowed, a couple of horizontal creases and a series of needle holes from spine stitching, half a dozen small patches of faded text, but still in surprisingly good condition for a binding wrapper, the verso quite clean, the margins ample, the text almost entirely legible, and the lovely white vine initial well preserved. The fine "M" beginning the passage from John here is the type that became the models for humanistic white vine initials in the 15th century in the mistaken belief that the manuscripts in which they were found were of late classical date. The leaf has suffered some from recycling, but it retains much of the grand feeling of the original.

In Venetia alla libreria del segno di San Marco.

Gli esemplari con la numerazione sono, invece, quelli inseriti negli Isolari. Raro primo stato di due. In buono stato di conservazione. THE RARE FIRST STATE of the map of the island by Camocio. In parallel to the IATO assembled in Rome and Venice, the Venetians continued to issue collections in the form of Isolario, expanded to contain plans and bird's - eye - views of towns and fortresses. Like the larger maps of The IATO these smaller ones were first issued for a loose sheet circulation, and then assembled in booklet form for interested customer.

        Historia di Zighet, ispugnata da Suliman, re de' turchi, l'anno MDLXVI. Nuovamente mandata in luce. Venedig, Bolognino Zaltieri, 1570.

      1570. 4to. 24, (2) pp. With woodcut printer's device to t. p. 18th century marbled wrappers. Rare second Italian edition (published a year after the almost unobtainable first Turin printing) of this historically important account of the events of the Battle of Szigetvár, fought between the Turkish and the Habsburgian forces. The final page treats the number of Turkish soldiers killed in the battle. - On 8 September 1566, after a month-long siege, the Ottoman army captured the fortress of Szigetvár and beheaded the defender, Miklós Zrínyi; more than 20,000 soldiers died. Shortly before the decisive battle, Sultan Süleyman the Magnificent, who personally led the campaign, died of old age after a reign of 46 years - the longest in Ottoman history. In spite of the Turkish victory, the death of their leader, the heavy losses suffered during the siege, and an early winter caused the Ottoman army to withdraw to Istanbul. Only in 1689 did the Hungarians re-capture the city. - The first edition ("Historia Sigheti") was published in Latin by Caspar Stainhofer in Vienna in 1568. It was purportedly a translation from the Croat language, prepared by Samuel Budina (cf. Apponyi 422). The supposed author, Fran Crnka (Ferenc Czerno), was Zrínyi's surviving chamberlain. According to Göllner, the actual author (though more likely, the editor) may have been Alfonso de Ulloa (d. 1580), who also published "Commentari della Guerra" and "Historie di Europa", both appearing at Zaltieri's press in the same year as the present work. - Extremely rare; a single copy at auctions internationally since 1950.

The attractive binding, apparently created for Haller or personalized for him somewhat later with his initials and the year of acquisition, shows the Seven Liberal Arts (front: plate-stamp of Grammatica - Dialectica - Retorica - Arithmetic; back: Musica - Geometria - Astrologia: Haebler I, 459, plates VII and VI) within a roll-tooled border of generals; horizontal bars of front cover stamped "WHD" ("Wolfgang Haller Doctor") and "1571". The bookbinder "HVM", who used these plates according to Haebler, "probably worked in the border area between Baden und Wuerttemberg" (ibid., p. 460).

Intitolata Avarchide da Avaricum, l'odierna Bourges in Francia, descrive l'assedio di questa città, capitale del Berry, dove si immagina nel 500 d.C. un conflitto tra i Celti cristiani e i Germani pagani; per l'elemento romanzesco il poema si ispira al Lancelot du Lac. Alamanni dedicò gli ultimi anni della sua vita a quest'opera. Disperando di non riuscire a terminare la revisione del testo, pregò il figlio Battista di pubblicarla dopo la sua morte. Prima Edizione a cura di Battista Alamanni, autore della dedica a Margherita di Francia, duchessa di Savoia e Berri. Cfr. Gamba, 20; Haym, p. 197; Melzi-Tosi, p. 9.

        Memoires du voiage de Constantinople de Jacques de Bracle seigneur de Bassecourt. Manuscrit du XVIe siècle. No place, c. 1570.

      1570. 4to (210 x 135 mm). French manuscript on paper. 90 ff. Flemish Bastarda in black ink, 26 lines. Bound with 16 strictly contemporary specimens of Turkish marbled paper, a series of 28 watercolours, heightened in gilt and two extensive, early 19th century manuscript additions (complete transcript of the the travelogue and a biography of the author). Slightly later vellum with ms. title. Unique, fascinating and unpublished manuscript containing the account of a diplomatic journey to the Ottoman Empire in 1570. Braeckle (1540-71), a Flemish physician, "assisted Charles Rym Baron de Bellem, Ambassador of Maximilian II in Constantinople, probably as a secretary. He wrote an account of his journey, which contains interesting details about the places he visited, the manners and customs of the inhabitants, incidents, etc." (Aug. Vander Meersch, in: Belgian National Biography II, 903). Leaving Prague on 13 March 1570, the mission passed through Vienna and then Hungary and Czechoslovakia before entering Ottoman territory, visiting the mosques and caravanserais of Sokollu Mehmed Pasha (c. 1505-79), Grand Vizier of Sultan Selim II (1524-74) who ruled the Turks at the time of Rym's and Braeckle's journey. Their stay in Constantinople lasted from 31 May to 12 August 1570, permitting the author to describe several monuments and works of art. During the journey back they travelled through Bulgaria, Serbia (they were held in Belgrade for nearly a month), and Hungary. The mission ended with their return to Germany on 23 October 1570. Jacques de Braeckle died shortly afterwards, in 1571. - The ms. is accompanied by a beautiful set of 28 original watercolours heightened in gilt. Showing Turkish people in traditional costumes, such illustrations were usually fashioned for sale to travellers in Constantinople or passed on to western merchants. However, as the present set includes the caravanserai of the diplomatic legation, it is extremely likely that these were created with the sole purpose of illustrating the diplomatic mission of Charles Rym, described within the present manuscript. The figures are captioned next to the subjects (16th century Italian script in black ink), indicating that the legends were recorded after the plates were collated and sewn together, or that they were included in books before insertion into the present volume. Among the illustrations are the caravanserai of the ambassadors to Constantinople, Sultan Selim II, the Mufti, costumes of Ottoman dignitaries and the military, a Persian, a Moor of Barbary, a lady in burqa, a Bulgarian, a giraffe, etc. The author of the Italian captions may have been the ambassador Edoardo Provisionali: he was responsible for several diplomatic missions and is known to have appreciated the Ottoman culture; furthermore, de Braeckle left Constantinople in his company (cf. Yerasimos). The manuscript is also bound with 16 remarkable specimens of 16th c. Turkish paper (title in French in pen on the first sheet: "papier de Turquie"). At the beginning of the volume is a transcription, calligraphed in an elegant French cursive of the early 19th century (18 unnumbered ff., black ink, 21 lines per page). The volume ends with a short biography of the author (2 pp., black ink, with the arms of de Braeckle). Yerasimos provides a detailed chronology of the journey, listing the major cities visited as well as monuments and curiosities noted by the travellers. - Only three manuscript copies of the present travelogue are recorded, mostly restricted to family use: two copies are in the National Archives of Belgium in Brussels (Fonds 692 Lalang, 8f., cf. Yerasimos); a third copy is bound in a miscellany and kept at the communal Archives of Ghent. - Binding rubbed, spine detached, in excellent condition internally. Stéphane Yerasimos, Les Voyageurs dans l'Empire Ottoman (XIVe-XVIe siècles), Ankara, 1991, pp. 286f. Not in Blackmer or Atabey.

        Thusciae Descriptio Auctore Hieronimo Bellarmato.

      1570. Anversa, 1570 circa. Edizione tratta dalla prima edizione del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum", incisione in rame, colore d'epoca, cm 32 x 49 (alla lastra) più margini, testo latino al verso, in alto a ds. titolo entro cartiglio a volute. Il "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" è stato il primo atlante moderno, comprendente carte di tutte le zone del mondo. Prima di allora la produzione cartografica era stata irregolare, locale a livello di produzione, e i pochi atlanti, i cosiddetti "Atlanti Lafreriani" erano costituiti su richiesta, raccogliendo carte di alcune zone e ignorando le altre. La geniale intuizione di Ortelio fu appunto quella di riunire, in un unico corpus, la produzione cartografica del periodo, costituendo la base per un'impresa editoriale di enorme successo che sarebbe stata pubblicata dal 1570 al 1612. Magnifico esemplare, a pieni margini e in bella coloritura, molto ben conservato.

      2 vols. in 1. [2], 3-533, [90]pp, rubricated throughout. 16mo. Some sl. dusting, but a generally a good clean copy. Near contemporary vellum, hand-lettered spine; darkening to covers.A 19th century note on the inner front board records that 'this book bought at the sale of Sir Hudson Lowe's library was formerly in the library of Emp. Napoleon 1st at St Helena' with separate note: 'W. Leaf from W. Tyas Nov. 26 1876'. Sir Hudson Lowe, 1768-1844, was Governor of St Helena during Napoleon's exile on the island. He was known as Napoleon's gaoler, and criticised for his harsh treatment of the former Emperor. Napoleon brought with him 550 volumes from the Trianon library, and 38 from Malmaison. While on board the Northumberland he made a list of books which he desired, which was posted to England from Madeira, but they did not arrive till June, 1816. Further volumes arrived over the next few years.The books belonging to the British Government were sold by auction at Jamestown in March, 1822, to the number of 1,847. The greater part of the rest of the library was sold in London by direction of the French bookseller Bossange, by public auction, through Sotheby, on the 23rd July, 1823 (where this volume is not listed). An anonymous note inside another book from Napoleon's library states that the writer was engaged by Mr. Triphook, the bookseller of Bond Street, to make a catalogue of Sir Hudson Lowe's library in 1823. Sir Hudson sold the principal portion of his library at auction in 1829, over twelve days' sale, and the remainder was sold by Messrs. Evans and Sons, Pall Mall, following his death in 1844.

        Mappa dell'Emisfero Orientale

      1570. Rarissima carta geografica raffigurante l'Europa, l'Africa e le coste orientali del Nord America. Esemplare nel terzo stato finale, con il cartiglio in basso a sinistra vuoto e le linee di rotta cancellate. Il primo stato della lastra presenta il cartiglio vuoto. L'opera è firmata nel secondo stato da Orazio Bertelli, in qualità di incisore della lastra, mentre la dedica a Francesco Scaridino include la data e la firma dell'autore ed editore Domenico Zenoi. Questo terzo stato presenta di nuovo il cartiglio bianco. La mappa, rarissima, può essere occasionalmente inclusa nelle raccolte di piccolo formato edita da Bertelli e Camocio. Meurer descrive solo due stati dell'opera, ignorando questa ulteriore ultima variante. Orazio Bertelli (attivo a Venezia nella seconda metà del sec. XVI) Orazio Bertelli, probabilmente fratello di Luca, lavorò a Venezia e, secondo Le Blanc, anche a Roma come editore calcografico e forse anche incisore. Nel 1582 stampò a Venezia opere di Agostino Carracci, Paolo Veronese e di altri autori. Molte delle incisioni attribuitegli probabilmente furono da lui solo pubblicate. Domenico Zenoi (attivo a Venezia nella seconda metà del sec. XVI) Detto anche Domenego Veneziano, fu attivo a Venezia come incisore. Nel 1567 chiese al Senato veneto il privilegio collettivo per stampare opere di soggetto religioso, ritratti e alcune mappe. Zenoi incise inoltre stampe di soggetto mitologico e storico. La sua produzione cartografica va all'incirca dal 1559 al 1574, e le sue carte sono firmate generalmente Dominicus Zenoi Venetus excidebat, più raramente Dom.co Zenoi cum privilegio e Domeneco Venetiano. Zenoi incide carte di Gastaldi e di Sofiano e lavora per Donato e Ferrando Bertelli e per Camocio. Incise anche alcune carte inserite nel Civitatum aliquot insignorum et locorum magis monitorum exacta delineation cum additione aliquot Insularum principalium edito da Ferrando Bertelli nel 1568, e da Donato Bertelli nel 1574, e alcune delle Isole famose, porti, fortezze, e terre marittime sottoposte alla Ser.ma Sig.ria di Venetia, ad altri Principi Christiani, et al Sig.or Turco, novamente poste in luce, in Venezia del Camocio del 1571. Nel 1568, fu multato di 10 ducati dalla magistratura degli Esecutori contro la Bestemmia per alcuni sonetti osceni illustrati da immagini, di cui alcune copie furono trovate in vendita presso la bottega di Camocio, multato a sua volta, ma di soli 5 ducati. Bell'esemplare con piccoli margini, perfetto stato di conservazione. Rare map showing Europe, Africa and the eastern coast of North America. Exemple in the third, final, state, with the cartouche in the lower left empty and the wind lines deleted. The first state of the plate has the empty cartouche The work is signed in the second state by Orazio Bertelli, as an engraver of the plate, and the dedication to Francesco Scaridino includes the date and signature of the author and publisher Domenico Zenoi. This was the third presents again the cartouche white. The map, rare, can occasionally be included in the collections of small format published by Bertelli and Camocio. Meurer describes only two states of the work, ignoring further this latest variant.

        Rhodi Insula nobilissima nel Mare

      1570. Bulino, 1570 circa, datato in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, con inusuali ampi margini, in perfette condizioni. Questa rarissima carta di Rodi viene attribuita per motivi stilistici al Bonifacio. La data di stampa deve essere sicuramente antecedente al 1570. È evidente, infatti, che nel cartiglio il titolo è inciso su un precedente testo, abraso, la cui traccia risulta ancora evidente. Questo lascia supporre che esista uno stato antecedente della mappa, che però non è citato in nessuna delle bibliografie esistenti. Magnifico esemplare di questa bellissima mappa. Engraving, about 1570, dated on plate at the bottom right. Magnificent impression, printed with tone, on contemporary laid paper without watermark, with unusual large margins, in perfect conditions. This rare work is attributed to Bonifacio for stilistic reason. The date of printing surely must be prior to 1570. It is obvious that in the cartouche is engraved on a previous text, abraded, whose trace is still evident. This suggests that there is an antecedent state of the map, which is not mentioned in any of the existing bibliographies. Magnificent specimen of this beautiful map. Venezia Venice Meurer, The Strabo Illustrated Atlas, p. 89, 75; Tooley, Italia Atlases, 466; Zacharakis/Scutari 2274/3487. Dimensioni 245x315. 245 315

      Sevilla, vende se en Casa de Francisco de Aguilar, 1570. - in-4. 248ff. chiffrés. Plein vélin souple du temps (corps d'ouvrage un peu biaisé, plats frottés). Edition Originale. Ce dictionnaire bilingue espagnol-italien, le premier du genre en Espagne, est aussi le second vocabulaire espagnol après celui de Nebrija et il contient pour la première fois plus de 200 mots espagnols nouveaux. "En ese aspecto de originalidad en relación a la lexicografía precedente, sobre todo en relación a Nebrija, es en el que queremos insistir aquí, listando algunos vocablos que De las Casas incorpora a su obra, vocablos que no había tenido entrada en la lexicografía anterior y cuya fecha de primera documentación debe ser adelantada" (Acero). L'ouvrage connut un succès considérable et il fut réimprimé à une quinzaine de reprises jusqu'au début du 18e siècle. Cette première édition, imprimée à Séville où résidait l'auteur, est peu commune et bien qu'on en recense une quinzaine d'exemplaires complets dans les bibliothèques publiques espagnoles (cf. CCPB), les collections italiennes n'en localisent qu'une poignée d'exemplaires et WorldCat, pour sa part, n'en répertorie qu'une dizaine. Page de titre salie, tache d'encre dans la marge inférieure de deux feuillets (sans atteinte au texte). Annotations et nombreux passages soulignés par un lecteur de l'époque, avec une indication manuscrite barrée sur la page de titre "A Salamanca fr. P. de Soria". Cf.

        The elements of geometrie of the most auncient philosopher Euclide of Megara. Faithfully (now first) translated into the Englishe toung, by H. Billingsley, citizen of London. Whereunto are annexed certaine scholies, annotations, and inuentions, of the best mathematiciens, both of time past, and in this our age. With a very fruitfull præface made by M. I. Dee, specifying the chiefe mathematicall scie[n]ces, what they are, and wherunto commodious: where, also, are disclosed certaine new secrets mathematicall and mechanicall, vntill these our daies, greatly missed.

      Imprinted at London by Iohn Daye 1570 - First edition in English of the first complete translation. Folio (31.5 x 20.5 cm), [28], 203, 205-464, [1] leaves, title within an allegorical woodcut border, showing Time bringing Truth and Antiquity to light [McKerrow & Ferguson 99], folding letterpress 'Groundplat' or table accompanying John Dee's preface, geometrical diagrams throughout, Book XI with 23 diagrams with one or more overslips (circa 43 in total), large woodcut portrait of John Day above colophon, woodcut historiated or decorative initials and tail-pieces, lacking final blank, short repair within table, mostly within blank area, ink smudges within text to [fist]2v and [fist]3r, occasional staining, mostly marginal, but heavier to signature D, occasional spotting, modern calf antique, a fine clean example kept in a modern solander box. The first English Euclid, with overslips, and notable for John Dee's preface, one of his most important texts. A fine clean copy. This full translation by Sir Henry Billingsley, a successful London merchant who later became Lord Mayor, relied on the achievements of two earlier editors, Campanus and Zamberti, and benefited from the involvement of the Elizabethan mathematician and magus, John Dee. As well as his preface, Dee also contributed many annotations and additional theorems to the work. "The most influential of all Dee's published works was his 'Mathematicall praeface' to Henry Billingsley's English translation of Euclid, Elements of Geometrie, printed by John Daye in 1570. The preface is firstly a long encomium of the study of 'thynges mathematicall' as partaking both of the supernatural and of the natural, and of geometry in particular. He goes on to enumerate the practical arts (proper to 'mechanicians') which derive from mathematics, and under one of the last of these, 'thaumaturgike', exculpates himself with some passion from the charge of conjuring. He also defends the use of the vernacular, as not encroaching on the rights of the universities. His concept of 'Archemastrie', which 'procedeth by Experiences', has been seen by some as foreshadowing the experimental science of the next century, but he also hints at magical interests and practices under this very heading. In general the 'Praeface' is now seen as a retrospective view of his own practice and teaching after his return to England in 1551, but the interest in magic, and possibly in skrying (seeing, or conversing with, spirits), may be a development of the late 1560s." (ODNB). Printing such a large and complex work with its folding overlays was a monumental task and the printer John Day is commemorated by his portrait at the end and possibly as the bearded figure of Mercury at the foot of the title-page. The overslips were originally printed as six bifolia bound in at the end. The number of overslips extant varies from copy to copy.

        San Filippo

      1570. CERCHIA DEL MELDOLLA - Acquaforte, priva di data e firma, circa 1560 - 70. Da un soggetto del Parmigianino. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata alla linea marginale, lievissima gora d'acqua, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera, incisa nello stile dello Schiavone, fa parte della serie di 13 incisioni raffiguranti Cristo e gli Apostoli (Bartsch 36 - 50; Richardsn 38 - 49) relative ad un popolare modello sviluppato dal Parmigianino e già tradotto a stampa dal Maestro FP. Nelle figure dei santi interpretate dal Meldolla tuttavia è chiara l'influenza esercitata dai lavori a chiaroscuro di Domenico Beccafumi. Questo lavoro, non terminato, non raggiunge l'incredibile livello pittorico dell'analoga opera dello Schiavone. Andrea Meldolla deve il suo soprannome alla terra d'origine, la Slovenia. Non si hanno notizie sulla sua formazione, ma la produzione grafica e pittorica rimanda all'arte del Parmigianino. Autore di opere di soggetto profano, soprattutto mitologico, Meldolla occupa un posto importante nella storia dell'incisione, soprattutto per il suo magistrale uso della puntasecca. Rarissima. CIRCLE of MELDOLLA - Etching, signed and undated, circa 1560 - 70. After a subject of Parmigianino. A magnificent impression, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the marginal line, slight waterstain, otherwise in excellent condition. The work, engraved in the style of Schiavone, is part of the series of 13 engravings depicting Christ and the Apostles (Bartsch 36 - 50; Richardsn 38 - 49) about a popular model developed by Parmigianino already translated and printed by Master PF. In the figures of saints interpreted by Meldolla it is clear the influence of the works of Domenico Beccafumi chiaroscuro. This work is not finished, it reaches the incredible pictorial level of the similar work by Schiavone. Andrea Meldolla owes its nickname to the homeland, Slovenia. We have no information on his training, but the production drawing and painting refers to the art of Parmigianino. Author of works of profane subjects, especially mythological Meldolla occupies an important place in the history of engraving, especially for his masterful use of drypoint. Rare.
