Mizauld (Mizaldus), Antoine.
Köln, Birckmann, 1572.. (13,5 x 7,5 cm). 54 (2w) 245 Bll. Blindgeprägter Lederband der Zeit.. Sehr seltene erste Kölner Ausgabe des 1566 erstmals in Paris erschienenen Werkes. Es enthält Beiträge über Astronomie, Astrologie, Kosmetik, Gartenkunst, Medizin und über Heilmittel. Von besonderem Interesse ist, dass hier erstmals chemische Texte von griechischen Autoren wie z.B. Democrit und Synesius in lateinischer Sprache veröffentlicht werden. In dieser Kölner Ausgabe ist zudem das Vorwort des Verfassers durch das des Verlegers ersetzt. - Vorsätze leicht fleckig. Ohne das letzte weiße Blatt am Schluss. Einband etwas berieben und bestoßen. Unteres Kapital mit Wurmspuren. Ohne die Bandschließen. Insgesamt nahezu fleckenfrei und gut erhalten. - Ferguson, Book of Secrets IV, 6 (ausführlich); Durling 3187; Wellcome I, 4363 (unvollständig); Brüning 449; VD16 M5694; vgl. Duveen 407 (Ausgabe von 1574) There were two editions printed in Cologne in 1572 and 1573. "These are of such excessive rarity that the edition of 1572 is mentioned only by one or two writers, and its very existence has been doubted.... The special interest of these editions lies in their being possibly the first in which the Latin translations of the chemical writings of Democritus and Synesius, and some other Greek authors, made their appearance" (Ferguson, Secrets). - Without final blank. A fresh copy in contemporary blindstamped calf, slightly worn, ties lacking

Maximilian II. der Andere, Kaiser des Heiligen Römisches Reiches, Erzherzog von Österreich, König von Böhmen, Ungarn und Kroatien (1527-1576):
[Prag] s.i. [1572].. Einblattdruck (31 x 42 cm), (1) S. mit Schmuckinitiale. oben und unten mit geringem Textverlust alt beschnitten, verlorener Text in geschweiften Klammern, minimal fleckig, sonst schönes, repräsentatives Exemplar - zum Zeitpunkt der Recherche in keinem online zugänglichen Bibliothekskatalog verzeichnet - eine zeitgenössische "Copi der Kayserlichen Mayestat Mandats / die Müntzordnung betreffen / den XX. Januarij" als Digitalisat in der Staatsbibliothek München unter der Nummer BV019586303 - gedruckt unterzeichnet mit "Maximilianus.", "Vt. Jo. Bap. Weber." und "ad Mandatum Sacrae Cäsariä Maiestatis proprium. " - Mit der Verordnung versucht Maximilian, das Geldwesen zu stabilisieren. Schon 1566 hatte er versucht, den Renaissance-Euro einzuführen, doch die Landstände legen sich quer. Hochwertige Münzsorten fliessen ungehindert in die Schweiz, nach Italien und in die Niederlande ab, schlechtes Geld ("frembde böse und Inlendische geringe Müntz") überschwemmt das Heilige Römische Reich, das zwar nicht von Griechenland, aber von Dalmatien bis Burgund reicht. Die schleichende Geldentwertung läßt die Preise insbesondere für Nahrungsmittel steigen. Deshalb sollen "kein ander Silberne Müntzsorten" geduldet und "alle dergleiche Müntz verfelschung" verboten werden. Die ehrgeizige Reichsmünzpolitik scheitert aber. Schon 1573 setzt Maximilian die Verordnung außer Kraft. - sehr seltenes Dokument zur Wirtschaftsgeschichte der Renaissance

(mm. 210x150), cartonato rustico antico, tit. ms. al dorso, 8 cc.nn., 212 pp.num., grande marca tipografica al frontespizio; nelle cc. preliminari bel ritratto del Dolce al centro di una elaborata cornice architettonica figurata; ciascuno dei 25 canti del poema è molto ben illustrato nel t. da una grande composizione racchiusa in elegante bordura istoriata, come pure gli Argomenti. Testo in corsivo su due colonne, ornato da testatine, grandi capilettera figurati a vignetta e finalini. Veramente ricca e rimarchevole è tutta la parte illustrativa, inc. su legno. "Rara prima edizione postuma" di questo noto e pregiato poema epico-cavalleresco. Cfr. Bongi,II, pp. 323-324: ?E? questo un altro poema che il Dolce morendo lasciò inedito, e che venuto, o per compra o per eredità, in mano del Giolito, fu da lui pubblicato postumo, e dedicato mediante una lettera del suo giovine figliuolo Giovanni, del 1 Aprile 1572, al Principe d?Urbino. Se crediamo al Ferrario, questo sarebbe il migliore fra i poemi scritti da lui.. L?edizione del 1572 è veramente, se non rarissima, effettivamente rara; il che del resto è privilegio comune dei romanzi di cavalleria? - Adams,I, p. 361 - Bibl.

CONTI, Natale
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.

For his first Latin edition of 1566, Plantin hired the Dutch artists Pieter and Franz Huys to re-engrave the earlier plates.

In-ottavo oblungo, legatura in pergamena molle coeva, con titolo manoscritto al dorso, 168 piante di città finemente incise in rame al bulino, irregolarmente intervallate da pagine bianche, leggeri aloni di umidità su alcune carte, per il resto in ottime condizioni. Antica iscrizione sul retro della copertina ?Anno 1572. Opere di Martino Rota e di Francesco Valegio?. Esemplare primitivo dell?opera, databile al massimo al 1585, privo del frontespizio, che verrà realizzato solo per la prima edizione della Raccolta (1590 circa). L?opera è composta solo dalle prime 168 tavole, tutte finemente incise, ricche di tono e contrasto, tipici delle prime tirature. I fogli bianchi che intervallano le tavole, erano probabilmente destinati ad accogliere le immagini delle altre città che mano a mano venivano prodotte.Francesco Valegio incisore e stampatore, è attivo tra il 1570 e il 1643. Secondo il Gori Gandellini, sarebbe nato a Bologna verso il 1560; la sua attività di incisore e stampatore si svolse prevalentemente a Venezia, spesso in collaborazione con altri stampatori tra cui Catarino Doino. L?opera cartografica più impegnativa del Valegio è appunto la Raccolta di le più illustri et famose città di tutto il mondo; le tavole presenti nella corpus sono prive di data, ad eccezione di Algeri, Costantinopoli e Rodi firmate da Martino Rota da Sebenico, dove compare l?anno 1572. Le piante e le vedute che presentano la firma del Rota costituiscono il nucleo più antico della raccolta e fanno desumere che il progetto editoriale probabilmente sia stato avviato dall?incis … [Click Below for Full Description]

(9), 259, (9), 291, (9), 261 con decine di capilettera decorati e 4 belle vignette xilografiche finemente incise nel testo, tutte raccolte nelle prime 43 pagine. Legatura in piena pergamena floscia coeva, con titolo calligrafico e 4 nervi al dorso. Opera storica non comune "nella quale cominciandosi dal principio della creation del mondo e discorrendosi per tutte le Historie degli Hebrei ...fino alla destruttion di Gerusalemme"; è divisa in 3 parti: "Dell'Historie degl' Imperatori Greci" - "Historie romane cominciando dal principio della città di Roma fino a Costantino Cloro Imperadore e padre del Gran Costantino" - "De' fatti di tutti gli Imperadori Orientali cominciando da Costantino il Grande fino ad Alesso Comneno." Giovanni Zonara fu storico e monaco bizantino vissuto all'inizio del XII secolo. Svolse l'attività di storico secondo i nuovi canoni dell'epoca dei Comneni, ritornando all'imitazione dei classici nello stile e nella lingua, e trasse spunto da fonti quali il Vecchio Testamento, Flavio Giuseppe, Erodoto, Senofonte, Plutarco, Procopio, Cedreno, Psello e molti altri. La sua storia, conforme all'uso dei cronisti bizantini, servì di modello e fonte ai cronisti posteriori, e meritò la traduzione in diverse lingue. Sulla traduzione latina di Wolff del 1557 furono condotte le traduzioni in italiano: quella fatta dal Fiorentino nel 1560, stampata da Ludovico degli Avanzi, e quella di Dolce nel 1564 stampata dal Giolito di Ferrari.
