GREVIN, J.
1571. Antweriae, ex officina Chistophori Plantini, 1571. 4to (223 x 155mm). pp. (20), 332, (10), with 92 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum (some damage to right upper corner of the frontcover). First Latin edition of this important work on toxicology. The first French edition was published by Plantin in 1568. The present Latin edition was translated from the French by the Augsburg physician Hieremias Martius. Jacques Grevin (c. 1539-1570) was a French poet and dramatist and disciple of Ronsard. "Grevin was originally educated as a physician, and wrote several works on medical and scientific topics. His two books on poisons, while adding nothing new to toxicological knowledge, showed a distinctively skeptical and realistic attitude towards the writings of both classical and modern authors, with whom Grevin often disagreed. He also casts doubt on several superstitious beliefs, such as the efficacy of amulets against poison, or the turquoise's power to detect the presence of toxic substance. Two books on poisons was published with Grevin's verse translation of 'Theriaka' and 'Alexipharmaka', two didactic poems on poisonous plants and animals by the Hellenistic physician Nicander of Colophon (b. ca. A.D. 275)" ('The Haskell F. Norman library of Science & Medicine' 439, quoting the French edition). The excellent woodcuts show snakes, amphibia, scorpions, fish, a dog suffering from rabies, poisonous plants etc. Durling 2174; Nissen ZBI, 1713..

FOGLIETTA, Uberto.
4to. Mid eighteenth-century maroon morocco by Padeloup of Paris (engraved binder's label at lower margin of title), spine ornamented and lettered in gilt, triple fillets around boards in gilt, inner dentelles gilt, gilt-lined edges of the boards, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers; ff. [vi], 97, [3], woodcut printer's device on title, f. [32] blank; light wear to hinges and extremities, variable browning (as frequently the case with Southern Italian books of this period), two preliminary leaves remargined in the eighteenth century, f. 94 with small hole, not touching any letter; sixteenth-century inked out Italian ownership inscription to title. First edition of this detailed study of three violent episodes in Genoa's and Italy's turbulent history: the failed conspiracy and coup d'etat of Giovanni Luigi Fieschi against the autocratic Andrea Doria in Genoa in 1547, in which the author's older brother had been involved and which provided the historical background for Friedrich Schiller's play of 1783; a popular uprising in Naples against the French viceroy Pietro di Toledo; and the violent death of Pier Luigi Farnese, Duke of Parma in 1547, who had been stabbed by aristocratic conspirators. The repercussions of Doria's harsh punishment against the Fieschi family made it impossible to publish such a book in Genoa. Naples seemed far enough and not too much in cahoots with the Genoese government to publish the text, which had been circulating in manuscript since 1569. Uberto Foglietta (Genoa, c. 1518 - Rome, 1581) was an official historiographer to various Italian Renaissance cou … [Click Below for Full Description]
