        Historiarum sui temporis libri decem. Pars prima. [all published]. Venice, Giovanni Varisco,

      1572 - The rare first edition of this contemporary history, written in ten books which covered the years 1545 to 1557; this was a joint production between Giovanni Variso and the Sessa press whose name appears on the imprint of some copies. A second edition appeared in 1581 in which the work was expanded to 30 books taking the history up to the present day.Dedicatory preface adressed to the natural son of Emperor Charles V, Don Juan of Austria, whose military exploits against the Ottoman Empire are highly praised; in the previous year Don Juan had finally put an end to the Turkish threat at the battle of Lepanto. The narrative is filled with accounts of engagements with the Turks, but there are accounts of relations with England, the discovery of places in the New World, while the final event to be described is the great flood of the river Tiber in 1557.An excellent roll-tooled pigskin binding with a roll-tool composed of four large stamps, which is very similar to two rolls described by Haebler I, p. 214/5, nos. 15 and 17, on bindings in the Graz Universitätsbibliothek, on books dated 1566 and 1569 respectively.Provenance. Ownership note on title-page of the Jesuits of Innsbruck, dated 1619, later stamps on title.Censimento CNCE 13167. Not in Adams.

Portrait reproduced in Messmer, p. 9. & & Includes first printings of "Beati pauperes spiritu," "Beatus vir qui timet Dominum" and "Inclina Domine aurem tuam." & & "[Lassus] was one of the most prolific and versatile of 16th-century composers, and in his time the best-known and most widely admired musician in Europe...." & & The motets of Lassus were admired in their own day not only for their beauty and technical perfection but also for their rhetorical power – their ability to move the affections through the use of rhetorical devices transferred into musical idioms." James Haar in Grove online& & A fine example of 16th century music printing from this important Parisian music publisher. The two cousins, Adrien le Roy (ca. 1520-1598) and Robert Ballard (1525-/30-1588) received a royal privilege from King Henry II to print and sell music in 1551; their first publication dates from that year. "The most frequently published composer was Lassus, who was a personal friend of Le Roy. Le Roy & Ballard played an important part in disseminating his newest works in France and in Europe generally... The typographical material was particularly fine. The elaborate woodcut borders on the title-pages, the print4r's marks and the 'lettres grises' or historiated woodcut initials in several sizes in the style of Jean Cousin are superb exampes of French Renaissance graphic arts." Krummel & Sadie p. 161.& & The Meyer collection, formed over a period of some 75 years, was one of the most important collections of printed music, musical autographs, and books on music, with hundreds of items dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries.

        Hierosolyma vrbs sancta. Ivdeae, totivsque Orientis longe clarissima

      Cologne: Braun & Hogenberg. unbound. View. Copper engraving. Image measures 13 x 16.5". This bird's-eye view shows Jerusalem from the east as seen from the Mount of Olives. Unlike many of the imaginary historical maps and views of ancient Jerusalem made during this period, this view is a contemporaneous depiction of the city based on actual observation; as the title in the lower left reads, in translation, "the most famous city of Juda and the East in her present size and greatness." As a result, this view lays claim to a level of accuracy in its depictions of the city's architecture and layout such that significant sites can be easily located. The city's many buildings are packed closely together within a fortified circular wall surrounded by countryside, and 48 locales are labeled in accordance with a key in the lower right corner of the view. At the center of the bottom of the view is a group of five men, possibly travelers or scholars. The text along the top of the view reads, "This is Jerusalem. I have set it in the midst of the nations and countries that are round about her." The view is the rarest of the three views of the city Braun and Hobenberg published in their famous city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terraru," a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. This uncolored version is particularly scarce. Latin text on verso. The view is in very good condition with full original margins. Some wear to lower left corner not affecting the image. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. This uncolored view is a lucky find.

        Le Decameron de Maistre Jean Bocace Florentin, traduict de Italien en Françoys

      Paris: Jean Ruelle, 1572. Very rare illustrated pocket edition (first 1545; Mortimer 106) of the second French translation of Boccaccio’s Decameron, and the first done directly from Italian, important for its influence on both French and English literature. Commissioned in 1531 by Marguerite of Navarre and first published in 1545, it appeared some 20 times during the 16th century, and during subsequent centuries remained the best-known French translation of the Decameron —the one against which other French translations were measured. Having spent a year in Florence, Le Maçon could read Boccaccio in the original: Laurent Premierfait, the first to translate the entire Decameron to French (1411-14, circulated in manuscript until published in Paris, 1485), had worked from a Latin translation. “[Le Maçon’s] style is brisk and spontaneous, generally considered superior to that found in the more mediocre translation of Laurent. ... Like Laurent he adds passages for greater clarity and to please his patron Marguerite” (Gathercole, pp. 302-3). The present edition utilizes the text of Le Macon’s 1545 translation, but does not copy the woodblocks; we have not been able to trace their prior use, but they most likely copy the earliest pocket edition (1558).Marguerite de Navarre mentions this translation in the introduction to her Heptaméron; the relationship between that work and the Decameron is still the subject of scholarly debate (see Diffley). Although it is often assumed that William Painter translated his Boccaccio stories from Italian for the Palace of Pleasure, 1566-67, Wright argues that Painter relied heavily on Le Maçon’s translation—which makes Le Maçon an indirect influence on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Timon of Athens, and All’s Well That Ends Well, plus many other Elizabethan plays. Wright also argues that the first complete English translation of the Decameron, published in 1620, relied on Le Maçon’s French translation as well as Salviati’s Italian edition.OCLC records only a copy at Cleveland Public; KVK locates another edition the same year by Micard in Munich. Despite extensive searching, we find the present edition in no Boccaccio bibliography, although it is internally complete. *Patricia M. Gathercole, “The French Translators of Boccaccio,” Italica 46:3 (Autumn, 1969), pp. 300-309. On Boccaccio in 16th-c. France, see Carlo Pellegrini, Il Boccaccio nella cultura francese (Florence, 1971), esp. pp. 274-5 (“nettamente superiore alla prima per dignità ed impegno artistico”) and p. 357.. 616 ff. [i.e., 618, with 495-6 repeated]; 13 ff., lacking final blank. Woodcut title page, half-page woodcut vignette in oval cartouches at beginning of each day. Bound in 18th-century French red morocco, spine gilt with floral tool, gilt-stamped spine with black label, gilt; all edges gilt. Spine slightly faded; minor wear. Headlines occasionally shaved. Blank edge of title reinforced, grazing edge of printed surface. Some toning, but generally a very good copy with good strikes of the woodblocks.

        Pluarchi Chaeronensis quae extant opera, Ex vetustis codicibus plurima nunc primum emendate sunt, ut ex Henr. Stephani annotationibus intelliges: quibus & suam quorundam libellorum interpretationem adiunxit. 9 Volumes

      [Geneva]: Estienne, Henri, 1572 v. 1-3 Opuscula varia (Moralia) in Greek, 16,778, 779-1381, 1387-2101pp v. 4-6 Vitae (Lives), in Greek, 579, 581-1213,1217-1923pp v. 7-9 Opuscula varia (Moralia), in Latin, 731, 683, 695 + 216 pp. This scarce set is in good antiquarian condition. The 9 volumes are bound in beautiful dark red morocco with gilt ruling, gilt page edges. They are ex-library with all normal library marks including pockets, remains of library marks on the spines. A few of the spines have "pull" marks at the top edge with some general rubbing at spine tips and joints. Some of the joints are tender although everything is tightly bound. Spines are darkened as are the joints, a few of the volumes have dark spots on the red boards. Interiors have marbled end papers. There is the bookplate of Thomas S. McClelland who apparently donated the books to his Belloit College which he attended before going off to fight for the Union in the Civil War. Blanks all have old handwritten notes, including on some of the half titles, but the interiors are otherwise clean and unmarked. The first edition of the Complete Works of Plutarch, the Editio Princeps, published by the great Henri Estienne (1528-1598). It is the first 9 volumes of this famous edition, including the Lives and the Moralia, which Brunet praised for its "beautiful execution and accuracy." The first volume contains the title page for the first six volumes, with Estienne&#39;s famous olive tree. The first three volumes contain the Moralia in Greek. The next three contain the complete Lives for which Plutarch is most famous, also in Greek. The next three volumes contain the Moralia in Latin. The Latin translation of the Moralia has a general title page at the front of vol. 7. The edition was done by Estienne "avec correction et elegance" (Renouard). In the Latin translations, many of the most prominent humanists cooperated: Xylander, Erasmus, Turnebus, Bude, are among the translators. Renouard, Estienne, 135; Schweiger I, 259: "complete sets are of the utmost rarity. This edition is printed in the famous Grec du Roi font designed by Garamond.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.

        La Historia del Mondo Nuovo

      Venice: Pietro & Francesco Tini, 1572. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Bound in contemporary limp vellum with title inked on spine, later endpapers, leaf 103 with repaired marginal tear. Some worming and staining to binding, some spotting, occasional foxing; several early ownership inscriptions scored on title; generally very good.Scarce first complete edition (with 19 woodcuts) of the second printed work devoted to the customs of the American Indians illustrated from life. This edition is augmented with a section on the Canary Islands and an extra plate. Benzoni&#39;s is one of the earliest accounts of the European colonial establishment in America by a writer who was not Spanish, and the spirited woodcuts (all but one of which show Native Americans) were among the first to give Europeans images of Indians and their activities. Their ethnographic value has long been acknowledged, and they were the source for the De Bry engravings, which of course reached an even wider audience. The historical and ethical value of the work is also considerable: "Along with Las Casas&#39; Brevissima relación de la destruyción de las Indias, the Historia is considered one of the two foundation stones of the Black Legend of Spanish cruelty to the Indian."Benzoni (b. 1519), a native of Milan, came to the Caribbean as a young man in 1541 and visited the Greater Antilles, the Spanish Main, and Central America, thereafter sailing from Panama to Peru. Penrose notes that he "covered more ground than any other writer of the times, for with the exception of Mexico he had traveled with some thoroughness throughout Spanish America." For extensive illustration of American Indians, the Historia was preceded only by Thevet&#39;s Les Singularitez de la France AntarctiqueI 1558, which focused on Brazil.* 1) Adams B 688; Sabin 4791; Sturtevant, "First Visual Images of Native America," and Keen in First Images of America I, 417-54 & 108; Penrose, Travel and Discovery in the Renaissance, p. 299.2) Renouard I, 134.18; Adams V 624.
