        Quilatador de la Plata, Oro, y Piedras

      Large woodcut device on title with arms, surmounted by papal & royal crowns and numerous woodcuts & woodcut initials in the text. Printed tables in the text. 4 p.l., 71 leaves, one leaf. Small 4to, fine 19th-cent. Jansenist binding of crushed red morocco by Thibaron-Echaubard (as usual, washed), dentelles gilt, a.e.g. Valladolid: A. & D. Fernandez de Cordova, 1572. First edition and very scarce. Arfe (1535-95), studied anatomy at Salamanca and became a celebrated artisan in precious metals. Trained as a goldsmith by his father, he was a leading figure of the Spanish artistic style known as "Plateresque," which was based on elaborate gold and silver designs. "Early, much respected treatise written for the edification of apprentices, goldsmiths, and jewelers as well as those interested in precious metals and cut gems generally. The first two books describe methods of assaying, purifying, and alloying silver and gold, with several quaint woodcuts of a balance, weights, receptacles, smelting furnace, etc. The ratios of precious to base metals are carefully tabulated and explained, also the marks that must be used to signify purity, the use of the touchstone and alloy points, and other information deemed essential to the successful and legal use of the precious metals… "For the gemologist, however, it is the last book that is of great importance because it contains some of the earliest reliable, detailed information on weighing, sizing, and valuing precious gems. Treated: diamond, ruby, emerald, spinel, balas (spinel), sapphire, emerald of Brazil (probably green tourmaline), topaz, jacinth (zircon), amethyst (sapphire in part), chrysolite, sardonyx, garnet, rock crystal, pearl, turquoise, agate, coral, 'comerina,' bezoar, 'litropia,' prase, amber, niccolo agate, jasper, and chalcedony. All are described and some discussed in terms of sources, types, and magical and medicinal virtues. More important, however, most of the gems are compared in terms of value and to other standard gemstones of top rank. An excellent feature is the insertion in the text of numerous small cuts of faceted gems of specified sizes so that visual estimates of weight can be made. Numerous tables give gemstones, weights in 'quilates,' and values in Spanish reales. It is this book that Lenzen, Qualitätsmerkmale des Diamanten, 1966 claims as the first printed appearance of the 'square of the weight' rule for pricing cut diamonds. This rule was later repeated by Tavernier in his Travels (which see), and probably due to the scarcity of the present work and the wide publicity given to Tavernier's book, it came to be called the 'Tavernier rule.' Under pearl, in which is depicted a diameter gauge, a similar pricing rule is observed. Very rare."-Sinkankas 215. Fine copy, signed as usual, by the author on the verso of the final leaf. ? See Choulant, History and Bibliography of Anatomic Illustration, pp. 218-220, for his work in anatomy. Darmstaedter, Berg-, Probir- und Kunstbüchlein, p. 89. Hoover 54.

        Deutsche Handschrift auf Papier ?Rechnung Unsser Rudolff Aldt (?) unnd Bastian (?) ayner Herren Prelattenn unnd Landtschafft des fürstenthumbs Württemberg verordnete Eynnemmern Yber das Residuum Ablosungs Hilff Landtsteyr und Schloß gelt vom Kathreinen Anno 70 bis wiederumb uff Kathreinen Anno 71.?.

      Württemberg, um 1572. - circa 32,5 x 22 cm. 240 Blatt Blindgeprägtes Schweinsleder d. Zt. auf Holzdeckeln mit Schließen, monogrammiert ?W.F.? Schönes, sehr dekorativ gebundenes Rechnungsbuch über Einnahmen und Ausgaben im Herzogtum Württemberg vom 25. November 1570 bis zum 25. November 1571 (dem Namenstag der Katharina von Alexandrien). Das sog. ?residuum? war eine württembergische Besonderheit, nämlich der Überschuss, den die 14 großen Manns-Klöster über ihren Anteil von einem Drittel der zu entrichtenden Steuern einnahmen. Diese Klöster bildeten selbständige Verwaltungseinheiten (Klosterämter) und die Prälaten (katholisch wie evangelisch) bildeten den geistlichen Landstand. Die Überschüsse der Klosterämter, das sog. Residuum oder Mannsklösterdepositum, schöpfte der Landesherr ab. ?Das Residuum war hauptsächlich der Zankapfel zwischen Fürst und Volk gewesen. Die Regierung, geleitet theils durch kirchliche Interessen, theils durch eigenes Interesse, wollte es der Landschaft nicht überlassen, wollte überhaupt nicht, daß das Kirchengut zu sehr belastet werde, damit das Residuum nicht zu gering ausfalle: die Landschaft wollte es dem Herzoge nicht überlassen, um in den Landessteuern erleichtert zu seyn? (Reyscher, Württ. Gesetze, S. 115-116). ?Ablösungssteuern? wurden immer dann erhoben, wenn eine dem Landesherrn eigentlich zustehende Leistung nicht erbracht wurde. Unter ?Schloß gelt? ist eine Steuer zu verstehen, die die Landesherren zur Errichtung ihrer Festungen erhoben. - Die Blätter 19 und 30 entfernt, stellenweise ganz unbedeutend fleckig und insgesamt sehr gut erhalten. - Äußerst dekorativer wohlerhaltener Einband des Stuttgarter Buchbinders Wilhelm Funck. Zu ihm vgl. Haebler I, 129-130: Danach kommt sein Name ?vorwiegend in Verbindung mit Arbeiten für den Herzog und die Hofschule? vor und ?es fehlt auch nicht an Hinweisen, daß er für die Landkämmerei Rechnungsbücher gebunden hat.? Er stammte vermutlich aus Cannstadt und ist als Buchbinder seit 1555 nachweisbar. Seine Laufbahn beendete Wilhelm Funck laut ?Einbanddatenbank? im Jahr 1616. ?Sehr reichhaltig ist sein Stempelmaterial überhaupt nicht gewesen. Neben 9 Rollen, von denen aber nur 3 seine Initialen tragen, hat er nur 5 Plattenstempel besessen, und von diesen ist nur ein einziger bezeichnet.? - Die Platten zeigen vorne Justitia und hinten Lucrezia. Sie stammen von einem unidentifizierten Stecher her, der für Funck ganz am Anfang seiner Laufbahn tätig war: ?Er hat einen besonders zierlichen, wenn auch wenig originellen Stil.?.

        [Kinderskelett-Tafeln aus]: Externarum et internarum principalium humani corporis partium tabulae. [Nürnberg, Dietrich Gerlach, 1572].

      1572. 2 rad. Tafeln (ca. 556 x 328 mm und 546 x 290 mm). Folio. Die beiden berühmten, nach Volcher Coiters Biographen Robert Herrlinger "vollends originell[en] und wegweisend[en]" Kinderskelett-Tafeln aus den "Externarum et internarum principalium humani corporis partium tabulae" (Nürnberg, 1572). Nachdem der jungverstorbene Mediziner Coiter (1534-76), ein in Nürnberg wirkender Friese, nach seiner Zeit in Italien an keiner Universität mehr lehrte, hatte das Werk zunächst nur einen sehr eingeschränkten Leserkreis, und seine "Auflage kann nicht groß gewesen sein" (Herrlinger, 57). Bei den hier vorliegenden Tafeln handelt es sich um "die ältesten bisher bekannten [Abbildungen] aus dem Gebiet der Embyrologie und Kinderanatomie. Es handelt sich um zwei große Falttafeln von über einem halben Meter Höhe [...] Die erste zeigt das Skelett eines halbjährigen Kindes von schräg vorne, die zweite von schräg hinten; auf dieser ist als 'Abb. 3' ein kleines Skelett einer dreimonatigen Fehlgeburt hinzugefügt [...] Alle Abbildungstafeln sind wie immer mit V.C.D. signiert. Wenn sie auch nicht völlig korrekt sind, so ist vor allem an den beiden großen Kinderskeletten bemerkenswert, wie Coiter versucht, in reiner Schwarz-Weiß-Technik Knorpel und Knochen als zwei verschiedene Materialien zu kennzeichnen: er punktiert den Knorpel und läßt den Knochen weiß. Noch heute ist diese Art der Knorpeldarstellung üblich [...] Coiters Kinderskelette haben Schule gemacht. Felix Platter bringt in seinem anatomischen Lehrbuch von 1583 ebenfalls, als zweiter, Kinderskelette, die ohne Coiter kaum denkbar sind [...] Wirklich neue, bessere Abbildungen vom foetalen und vom kindlichen Skelett gab erst Thomas Kerckring (1670). Coiters Abbildungen waren ein ganzes Jahrhundert lang maßgebend gewesen" (ebd., S. 80). - Etwas braunfleckig; kl. Einrisse alt hinterlegt. VD 16, ZV 3754. R. Herrlinger, Volcher Coiter (Nürnberg, 1952), S. 79ff. (mit Abb.).

        Gregorio XIII

      1572. Bulino, 1572 circa, privo di firma e dati editoriali. Bella impressione, nitida e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana "doppia stella nel cerchio", margini di circa 1,5 - 2 cm, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Nella parte inferiore dell'immagine, una didascalia in latino su due righe 'Gregorius XIII Pont Max Assumptis Pontificalibus insignis quod coronationis munus nuncupatur populo benedicens vaticanum ingreditur VIII KAL M.D.LXXII' La scesa rappresenta papa Gregorio XIII, al secolo Ugo Boncompagni, sulla sedia gestatoria che benedice la folla, mentre fa il suo ingresso in Vaticano, il 24 giugno 1572. Il cardinale Boncompagni, bolognese fu eletto pontefice il 13 maggio del 1572, il giorno di S. Gregorio Magno, per cui scelse per sé il nome del santo. Com'è noto, Gregorio XIII riformò il calendario giuliano, allora in vigore, da allora denominato calendario gregoriano; mentre splendida testimonianza dei suoi interessi scientifici, storici e letterari è la Galleria delle carte geografiche in Vaticano, oggi inserita nel percorso dei Musei. La Galleria è lunga 120 metri, larga 6. Le pareti sono per intero ricoperte dalla rappresentazione delle regioni d'Italia nella restituzione cartografica del grande matematico e geografo Egnazio Danti. La stessa lastra verrà utilizzata da De Cavalleris, per l'insediamento di Sisto V, successore di Gregorio XIII, nel 1585, correggendo lo stemma araldico, la data e il nome del Pontefice. L'abrasione della lastra è visibile e lascia intravedere il testo sottostante. Interessante e rara opera. Engraving, ca. 1572, without date and signature. Lettered along bottom 'Gregorius XIII Pont Max Assumptis Pontificalibus insignis quod coronationis munus nuncupatur populo benedicens vaticanum ingreditur VIII KAL M.D.LXXII' A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with watermark "double star", and margins of about 150/200 mm, in a very good condition. The scene depicts pope Gregorius XIII, seated on the gestatorial - chair, giving his blessing to his loyal and devoted supporters. Cardinal Ugo Boncompagni was elected pope on May 13, 1572 after a one - day conclave. He is best known for commissioning and being the namesake for the Gregorian calendar, which remains the internationally accepted civil calendar to this day. Splendid testimony of his scientific historical and literary interests, is the Gallery of Maps in the Vatican. The same plate was late printed by De Cavalleris in 1585, in honor of Sisto V. 380 267

        Corpus doctrinae christianae. Quae est summa orthodoxi et catholici dogmatis ... Nunc edita ad usum ecclesiae sanctae publicum et privatum.

      Lipsiae: Cum privilegio Pr. Aug. Elect. D. Sax. (pr. by Iohannes Rhamba) 8vo (20 cm, 7.8"). [22], 888 pp.. 1572 Melanchton's final work, a collection of documents on confession and doctrinal teaching, first published (as the Corpus doctrinae philippicum, with Melanchthon thereby becoming the first to use the phrase "body of doctrine" as such) around the time of his death in 1560. => This edition was printed by Hans Rambau in a small, neat roman type with occasional Greek, with two pages done in black-letter, and with a vignette portrait of the author on the title-page. Binding: Contemporary calf, covers framed and panelled in blind with blind-tooled roll and corner fleurons surrounding a central strapwork and foliate medallion; front cover blind-tooled "B.G.C." above medallion and "1574" below it, between their own rules. Evidence of readership: Front fly-leaf with early 20th-century inked note regarding edition and portrait, signed "E.J.S."; a few instances of light early underlining; eight pages with early inked shouldernotes in Latin (ink color differing from above underlining). Provenance: Unidentified 16th-century collector; "B.G.C." on the binding. Later in the Library of the Pacific School of Religion (properly deaccessioned). Binding as above, rebacked with similar black calf, spine with gilt-stamped leather title-label and blind-ruled raised bands; original leather edges worn and chipped, edges and extremities refurbished, new endpapers. Ex-library (properly released): front fly-leaf, title-page, and one other page with old rubber-stamps. Annotations and underlining as above; front fly-leaf with chipped portion of paper bookplate adhered to upper outer corner. One leaf with small chip in upper margin; pages age-toned with occasional small smudges, otherwise clean. => An attractive, interesting example of this important work.

        Compianto ai piedi della croce

      1572. "Acquaforte e bulino, 1572, monogrammata in lastra, sulla tavoletta a destra MAR. A. VF. Esemplare nel II stato, con l'indirizzo di Luca Bertelli in fondo al centro. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""cerchio con stella a cinque punto in un rombo"", con sottilissimi margini, in pereftto stato di conservazione. Maria con il Cristo morto sulle ginocchia sotto la croce, circondato da seguaci. Maria Maddalena sta baciando i piedi di Cristo. La composizione piramidale è accentuata dalle due scale contro il fondo, seguite da una lancia e un bastone con una spugna. In primo piano su un piedistallo sono la corona di spine, chiodi e un martello. Sul testo base: iniquitates propter nostras. Isaia. 53. Si tratta della seconda incisione, firmata e datata, di Marco Angolo del Moro; la prima - Giove e una ninfa (Bartsch, 1818, p. 206) - risale al 1565. Bellissimo esempalre di questa rara incisione." "Etching with engraving, 1572, signed on plate and lettered on tablet in foreground ' Propter iniquitates nostras Esaias 53 / Venetis apud Lucam Bertelum. Anno MDLXXII.' Example of the second state, with the Luca Bertelli's address. A great impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with ""circle with a star"" watermark, with thin margins, very good conditions. Mary with the dead Christ on her lap under the cross surrounded by followers. Mary Magdalene is kissing the feet of Christ. The pyramidal composition is accentuated by the two ladders up against the cross, followed by a spear and a stick with a sponge. In the foreground on a pedestal are the crown of thorns, nails and a hammer. On the base text: propter iniquitates nostras. Esaias. 53. Bartsch does not describe this print in vol.XVI. A very good example of this rare work." Passavant 9 236 339
