GIUNTINI Francesco
apud Haeredes Iacobi Iunctae In-16 p. (mm. 161x108), p. pergam. molle antica con legacci (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, 227 cc.num., 1 c.b., con alc. disegni astronomici nel t. "Edizione originale" di questa rara opera del carmelitano Francesco Giuntini (Junctinus o Junctin) (1523-1590), maestro di teologia, letterato e uno degli astrologi più famosi della seconda metà del Cinquecento. Fu tra i primi a ripudiare le antiche tavole astronomiche e ad usare quelle di Copernico, pur non accettandone la riforma. Cfr. Cantamessa, ?Astrologia?, I,1838: ?Autore, 3 anni più tardi, dell?enorme "Speculum astrologiae" nel quale quest?opera è riprodotta, il Giuntini anche qui scrive di astrologia, sia pure esclusivamente riguardo alle cosiddette Rivoluzioni, cioè agli oroscopi per ciascun anno o per anni determinati, calcolati e tracciati sulla base dell?oroscopo di nascita, o radicale ("Radix").. Giuntini, come tutti gli astrologi dei secoli XVI e XVII, ha l?irresistibile tentazione di drammatizzare?. Cfr. anche Adams,I,J-439 - Caillet,II,5694: ?Junctin était correcteur de l?imprimerie où a été édité cet ouvrage? - Non citata dal Riccardi. Qualche lieviss. uniforme arross. altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

Hogenberg / [ Bol, Hans?]
[Ca. 1570-1590] Sheet size 34 x 51,5 cm. Cut inside the plate mark. Lacks the eight printed text lines below the image. Gilt frame 42,5 x 58 cm. Creases, stains and a few pinholes.

This is a separetly issued plate titled "The Wordly Life of Mary Magdalen" engraved by Franz Hogenberg, probably after Hans Bol. A wonderful engraving showing a typical flemish setting, eventhough there are added mountains in the background. A fine and gentle engraving style is applied, executed by a master. Hans Bol was a flemish miniature and landscape painter of the finest order. Frans Hogenberg was a painter and engraver foremost known for "Civitates orbis terrarum" published in collaboration with Georg Braun, a great work in five volumes depicting the cities of the world. Hogenberg also executed several of the maps to Abraham Ortelius great atlas "Theatrum orbis terrarum". A scarce plate

TELESIO, BERNARDINO [BERNARDINUS TELESIUS]. - [PAVING THE WAY FOR EMPIRICISM]
Napoli, Apud Iosephum Cacchium, 1570. 4to. Bound in 18th century marbled boards. Completely fresh and clean copy. Two small marginal holes to last two leaves, far from affecting text. Good, wide margins. Telesio's woodcut title-device (a beatiful naked woman, all alone, far from the troubles of the world, illuminated by the sun, surrounded by a border carrying the saying in Greek: "mona moi fila" - presumably depicting the goddess of Truth), and 11 lovely, illustrated woodcut initials. 12 ff. ¶ The rare first edition of one of Telesio's smaller scientific treatises, his treatise on the sea, which was based on purely empirical knowledge. The work constitutes a corrective to Aristotle and a continuation of his magnum opus on the things of nature, the important second edition of which was printed in the same year, also by Cacchium. The empiricism that Telesio propounds in his novel, empirically based scientific treatises, like the "De Mare", caused him to be to be considered "the first of the moderns" (Francis Bacon),"Bernardino Telesio (1509-1588) belongs to a group of independent philosophers of the late Renaissance who left the universities in order to develop philosophical and scientific ideas beyond the restrictions of the Aristotelian-scholastic tradition. Authors in the early modern period referred to these philosophers as 'novateurs' and 'modern'. In contrast to his successors Patrizzi and Campanella, Telesio was a fervent critic of metaphysics and insisted on a purely empiricist approach in natural philosophy-he thus became a forerunner of early modern empiricism.

(16)+672+(60) pages. Bound in contemporary full vellum with ribbed spine and blindtooled front and back cover.

MORA, Domenico. Treatise on Renaissance warfare by a Bolognese author in the service of Ottavio Farnese, Duke of Parma; with a splendid frontispiece woodcut of a mounted condottiere in full armour resembling Titian's equestrian portrait of the Emperor Charles V
Venice, Gabriel Giolito di Ferrara, 1570 (colophon: Venice, Giovanni Griffio, 1569). Small 4to. [8]f + 254p. Without last blank leaf. Roman & italic letter. Title with Giolito's phoenix device incorporated in cartouche and ornamental head-piece, a full-page woodcut of a condottiere on a war horse, 13 textual woodcuts, 26 letter diagrams showing troop formations (1 full-page), decorative woodcut initials and ornaments at beginning. 18th century vellum. First edition, second issue. A general treatise on the art of war by a Bolognese author in the Parman service. Book I is devoted to the duties of a commander and his senior officers; book II treats infantry tactics and battle orders - the author advocates separate formations of pike-men and arquebusiers, each made up in rows of six, marching in parallel order for mutual support; book III on fortification appears to be largely based on Maggi & Castriotto's Fortificatione delle città (- see Jähns 820); book IV instructs on drawing up plans for siege craft and on guarding a conquered city. The splendid full-page woodcut of a mounted condottiere in full armour facing the first page of text is thought to be based on Titian's equestrian portrait of the Emperor Charles V, although the fleur-de-lys decor of the caparison would suggest a French king. Published by Giolito as part of his historical series 'Collana historica' under the editorship of Tommaso Porcacchi. Mora's dedication to Ottavio Farnese, Duke of Parma, is dated 23 June 1569; most of this edition printed by Griffio was acquired by Giolito, who added a preface by Tommaso P … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAHAME, Simion
Woodcut headpiece on title, text within decorative woodcut borders. Tipped in before the title is a leaf with 2 pages of nineteenth-century manuscript dealing with the history of this book. Title lightly browned, but a handsome copy in nineteenth-century russia, rebacked, gilt edges; preserved in a half-calf clamshell box. From the libraries of Charles Tennant, Henry Cunliffe and Abel Berland with their bookplates. First edition of the original printed treatise, exceedingly rare, with no known copies. This work, consisting of prose interspersed with verse, describes the melancholy or humors of man. Like so many other writers on the subject, including Bright and Burton, Grahame's inducement was due in great part to his own experiences with depression and melancholy. It is interesting to note that many historians feel that this book was the major source of inspiration and indeed the original suggestion for Burton's Anatomy of melancholy, which is considered the greatest medical treatise ever written by a layperson. & Grahame (1570-1614) was born in Edinburgh. He is described as a traveler, soldier, courtier, and a great scholar who spent some time in exile on the continent (under unknown circumstances) where he wrote this work. According to the Dictionary of National Biography, Grahame was" licentious, and given over to all manner of debordings, but was an acute observer on human character and in lessons of practical wisdom." He spent his last years as an austere Franciscan, indicating that he had possibly struggled with spiritual, in addition to physical conflicts, m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Of particular interest is the first tract which deals with the magnet and its use in the treatment of different diseases; the second tract, on occult philosophy (including a chapter on imagination and one on possessed people) is of interest for medical psychology; the third one deals with the administration of medicines, and the last one with snakes and other poisonous animals. Edited by Johann Albert von Wimpenaeus (fl. 1568-70). Good copy. Rare. Sudhoff 128. .

Abraham Ortelius
EuropaeAbraham OrteliusAntwerp: c.1570Hand-colored copperplate engraving, beautiful original colorSheet size: 16 1/2" 21"Accompanying Latin text on versoAbraham Ortel, or Ortelius (1527-1598), was born in Antwerp in 1527 and was educated in Greek, Latin and mathematics. Ortelius began his career in cartography as a map colorist, and worked as a map and book dealer. Ortelius evolved into a keen and discerning expert on contemporary geographical knowledge and its expression in cartography, even traveling through Italy and France with Gerard Mercator (1512-1594), his friend and rival. In the 1560's Ortelius conceived of the project that would win him international acclaim, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, widely considered the first modern atlas. Ortelius collected the best contemporary maps available, and had each re-engraved by the talented Flemish artist Frans Hogenberg (1535-90) into a standard format and graphic style, appended scholarly text to their versos, and published them as a uniform edition. He maintained the highest quality of paper, engraving and coloring, resulting in some of the most beautiful maps ever produced. The Theatrum proved to be a landmarkadvancement over previous collections of maps. Suddenly, curious Europeans truly seemed to have

Provenance: The Paul and Marianne Gourary Collection of Illustrated Fete Books "Splendid Ceremonies".

Le tout recueilli selon le tesmoignage de ceux qui y ont este en personne" first published in Geneva in 1569 - 1570. The publisher's preferred etched issue found in the earliest editions of 30 plates. This fine and dramatic scene depicts the tragic moment at the tournament of June 1559 when Henri II (1519-1559), King of France was ousted from his horse by Gabriel de Lorges, Count of Montgomery (1530-1574) when a lance splintered, went into his eye and shot upwards into his brain, causing a subdural hemorrhage. In spite of this horrific injury,."the king managed to get to his chambers, where all of his physicians gathered in the hope of curing him. Initially, his surgeons cleaned the splinters out his eye, purged him with rhubarb and other purgatives, and bled him - as was the practice of the day - of 12 ounces (34 centilitres) of blood. The king's injuries were so serious that many famous physicians were sent for, including Andreas Vesalius. While the courtiers waited for Vesalius to arrive, the physicians who were at the king's bedside made several experiments, includ … [Click Below for Full Description]

BOETHIUS (Anacius Manlius Severinus Boethius)
4to. Limp vellum wrappers. 712pp (four pages per leaf, hence approximately 178pp). Good plus overall. Outer wrappers rather soiled, but sound; two-line contemporary ink ownership inscription near bottom of title page; preliminary leaves age toned and occasional sporatic age toning throughout text; occasional light foxing. Early (not first) printing of this oft-reprinted text, a tight and attractive copy. Roman philosopher Boethius (ca. 480-524) wrote his most famous work, "The Consolation of Philosophy," while in prison in Pavia for conspiring against his former friend Theodoric, ruler of Rome, who named Boethius consul (510) and head of government and court services (520); in 524 he was executed without trial. Boethius's translations and commentaries on the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle are credited with introducing him to the Western world. A millennium later, early printed versions such as this 1570 text reintroduced Aristotle to a far broader Western audience.

[Germany].
N. p. o. d., [Italy, c. 1570-1610].. ½ folio leaf (divided vertically), written on one side.. Elegantly disposed manuscript list of a series of princes and places in the Holy Roman Empire, written in a fine late 16th-century italic hand, supplemented by a contemporary hand. - Curious listing of names of places and potentates in 'Germany' (actually, within the Holy Roman Empire, since the Duke of Lorraine and the Count of Savoy are included), enumerating every class by fours - e. g. four dukes, four landgraves, four cities, four vicars etc. Evidently either a jeu d'esprit or perhaps for a literary purpose, the piece is without any identification. Including the additions in another hand, there are 12 groups of four in all (a total of 48), enough for a deck of playing cards. In addition, the second hand has inserted digits from 1 to 12 randomly beside each group. Could this be the plan for a proposed pictorial set of cards? - Slightly browned and with small damages to edges.

Aretius, Benedikt =
Kupferstich, ca. 1570, 17,6 x 12 cm auf 23,3 x 16,7 cm. Benedictus Marti gen. Aretius (1505-1574) "Als Schüler des Theologen Andreas Hyperius hat sich Benedikt Aretius in großem Maße den Naturwissenschaften, vor allem der Botanik, gewidmet und einiges Material über diese junge Wissenschaft im Marburg der vierziger Jahre des 16. Jahrhunderts hinterlassen. Über inzwischen allgemein bekannte Nachrichten hinaus sind aber die bildungsgeschichtlichen Aspekte in seiner Biographie, die die Stätte seiner Ausbildung, nämlich die Universität Marburg, betreffen, bislang nicht gebührend hervorgehoben worden. Benedikt Marti, Aretius genannt - die Pflanzengattung Aretia trägt seinen floristischen Entdeckungen zu Ehren diesen Namen-, wurde 1505 (tatsächlich um 1522*) Blätterkindern bei Bern geboren. Nach dem Grundschulbesuch erhielt er vom Rat der Stadt Bern das Stipendium zu einer Studienreise, die ihn über Zürich und Straßburg nach Marburg führte. Der Grund hierfür dürften die guten Beziehungen zwischen den Städten Bern und Zürich einerseits und dem Landgrafen von Hessen sowie seiner Universität andererseits seit Zwinglis Zeiten gewesen sein. Am 4. Mai 1545 schrieb er sich als Benedictus Martinus in die Marburger Matrikel ein und schloß sich vor allem Wigand Happelius, Johannes Dryander und Andreas Hyperius an, die sich in besonderer Weise für Schweizer Stipendiaten einsetzten. Unter dem Einfluß Dryanders widmete er sich vorerst dem Studium der Mathematik und Astronomie, verlegte sich aber während des Schmalkaldischen Krieges 1546/47 ganz auf die Botanik. Auf Exkursionen lernte er gemein … [Click Below for Full Description]
