DEMOSTHENES
Basileae: Ex officina Heruagiana, per Eusebium Episcopium, 1572. This Latin and Greek edition of the works of Demosthenes and Aeschines, fourth century B.C. Greek orators and rivals, comes from the illustrious collection of French historian, bibliophile, and statesman Jacques-Auguste de Thou, who assembled one of the greatest libraries of his day. Our binding bears the arms and cipher used by de Thou as a bachelor; after his marriage in 1587, he combined his arms with those of his wife in his supralibros and incorporated her initials in the cipher. Demosthenes (384-322 B.C.) was as famous an orator in the ancient world as Homer was a poet, and though he wrote no books, his many speeches had considerable political importance in his time, were recorded and collected, and have been much analyzed by generations of students of language and rhetoric. Often printed, as here, with the works of Demosthenes were the three extant orations of Aeschines (ca. 390-314 B.C.). He was the arch-enemy of Demosthenes, and one can see in Aeschines' public life and orations a concerted attempt to discomfit his rival. In his oration "Against Ctesiphon," for example, Aeschines argues that a crown intended for Demosthenes to honor his services to Athens ought not to be awarded. As an orator, he was possessed of a learned and impassioned eloquence, but, in comparison with Demosthenes, he lacked taste, judgment, and moral authority. A pupil of Melanchthon and a major scholar of the period, Hieronymus Wolf (1516-80) came to prominence, according to Sandys, with his editions of Suidas, of Isocrates (be … [Click Below for Full Description]

It is under the recommendation of Francis I that result Lives of illustrious men of Plutarch. Thereof, and thereafter the moral works had and will have a significant impact, not only for the rediscovery of antiquity (which thus had a greater impact than some scholars) and Plutarch but for the French language itself same. Montaigne wrote: "We, ignorant, were lost if we had this book surveys the mess ... This is our breviary. But not only skillful translator concerned about accuracy, it is also a very clever popularizer rather than a scholar, as he wrote to a wider audience and not for scholars, as he explains, he says that it is necessary to clarify, it looks pure French, away from hellenismes and tour pedants, a French to be praised by all specialists of the French language in the seventeenth as Vaugelas. Finally he brought the translation into a new era. Brunet, IV, 738.

CICERO, MARCUS TULLIUS
Lutetiae [Paris]: Apud Ioannem Bene-natum, 1572. Second Lambin Edition. This is a lovely volume in pleasing condition from the octavo edition of Lambin's Cicero, tastefully bound for a gentleman's library. According to Dibdin, Lambin's "critical abilities, and various erudition, well fitted him for the office of editor of Cicero." The contents of our volume, the rhetorician's "Letters to Friends," constitute a fundamental and lively source for the politics of the late Roman republic, when the traditional constitution was collapsing under the weight of powerful generals, and was ultimately broken by the dictatorship of Caesar. Cicero, sometimes called the last Republican, describes events and personalities in his letters with the knowledge of a statesman and the pen of great orator, writing to some of the key players in the desperate political game of the era, such as Munatius Plancus, Vatinius, and Appius Claudius. The collection also includes a number of letters received by Cicero, including the famous letter of Brutus, in which he justifies his assassination of Caesar and proudly refuses to compromise with the young Octavian. The final 75 or so pages of the volume contain the annotations of Lambin (1520-72), whom Britannica calls "one of the greatest scholars of his age," further noting that "his editions of classical authors are still useful" and "his commentaries, with their wealth of illustration and parallel passages, are a mine of information." Our binding is done in a style popular with bibliophiles of the day, combining painted and gilt decoration to very pleasing … [Click Below for Full Description]

1572. "Missale Romanum" (short title - it's basically a Roman Catholic prayer book published around the time of Pope Pious V (who died in 1572); pub. 1576 (MDLXXVI); in LATIN. Date is a guestament. Full title is "Missale Romanum Ex Decreto Sacrosancti Concilii Tridentini Restitutum" which loosely translates as "Roman Missal by Decree of the Sacred Council of Trent Restoration." This was THE prayer book used by Catholic priests from the 16th century (following the Council of Trent 1545-1563) till the First Vatican Council in 1870. The binding looks much more modern to me, but I could be wrong. Pages are in great shape. Includes a Gregorian calendar (which dates it sometime AFTER 1582). Does not include the names of Popes Clement VIII or Urban VIII (as many later ones do), suggesting it was printed sometime before 1623, which is when Urban VIII took over as Pope and possibly before 1592, which is when Clement VIII took over. SO were I to date it, I would put it between 1582 and 1592. !! NON-CONTINENTAL US (HAWAII, ALASKA, PR, APO/FPO AND INTERNATIONAL) ORDERS WILL HAVE TO PAY AIR SHIPPING WITH TRACKING (EXPENSIVE!).

BACKGROUND: The Vulgate is a late-4th-century Latin translation of the Bible that became the Catholic Church's officially promulgated Latin version of the Bible during the 16th century. The translation was largely the work of Jerome, who in 382 had been commissioned by Pope Damasus I to revise the Vetus Latina ("Old Latin") Gospels then in use by the Roman Church. Jerome, on his own initiative, extended this work of revision and translation to include most of the Books of the Bible, and once published, the new version was widely adopted and eventually eclipsed the Vetus Latina; so that by the 13th century, it took over from the former version the appellation of "versio vulgata" (the "version commonly used") or vulgata for short, and in Greek as βουλγάτα ("Voulgata").

PARÉ, Ambroise.
Paris: André Wechel, 1572; 1568. First editions of two of Paré's most important works, both very rare, and in fine condition. "The Cinq livres contains all new material. It had been called by several serious writers Paré's chef d'oeuvre ... in it appears the first description of the fracture of the head and of the femur. Secondly, it is the first appearance of the whole teaching of bandages, fractures, and dislocations which has come down to us from the ancients, broadened by Paré's own experience ... It is undoubtedly one of his most important works" (Doe 19). The Traicté de la peste was written from direct experience of the plague: "Having passed the winter of 1564-65 on tour in Provence with Catherine de Medici and the young king Charles IX, where the ravages of a plague epidemic, added to poverty and general misery, were painfully apparent, Paré was requested by the queen mother to make whatever knowledge he possessed of the disease available to the world. He therefore puts into a book his ideas as to its cause, transmission, and treatment, and says he writes only of what he has seen by long experience during his three years at the Hôtel-Dieu, his travels, his practice in Paris, and his own slight attack while he was serving his internship. This is one of Paré's most systematic treatises; for its careful symptomatology and thorough description of treatment, it deserves to rank among the best of his writings" (Doe 14). Both works are very rare. "Paré's original books, all very rare today, were handy volumes, small enough for the field surgeon's knapsack" (Hagelin, p. 35) … [Click Below for Full Description]

HOMER (HOMERUS).
Argentorati (Strassburg), Theodosius Rihelius, (1572). 8vo. Contemp. full, richly blindstamped, pigskin over wood. raised bands, coloured titlelabel. Monogram G T R and the year 1613. 893,(37 - Scholia),(36 - Index) pp. Printers woodcut device on title-page. At end, Scholia and Index, with a brownspot in upper magin, otherwise clean. With parallel text in Greek and Latin. ¶ The rare and important 1572-edition of Homer's Iliad with the famous commentaries by Obertus Giphanius (Hubert van Giffen) (1534-1604) and the elaborate index. Two different editions were printed in 1572, of which this is smaller one, -"L'autre d'un format plus grands et imprimée avec des caractères plus grands et plus nets..." (Graesse, III:328). The text is that of Stephanus (Estienne) (from 1566), and the Latin version that of Crispin (Crispinus) (from 1559), the marginal variants are due to Estienne. Giphanius is famous for his humanistic way of organizing his great literary knowledge, and his commentaries are known to have reached a large public. His commentaries on Homer fit perfectly into the tradition of Renaissance Humanism, as he sees Homer as an essential part of literary and moral learning. The Iliad and the Odyssey were printed simultaneously by Rihelius. Only the Iliad is present here, but is complete in itself. The edition was reprinted numerous times later, but only the two mentioned editions were printed in 1572.Adams: H 764. - Brunet III: 272.

BACKGROUND: •The Vulgate is a late-4th-century Latin translation of the Bible that became the Catholic Church's officially promulgated Latin version of the Bible during the 16th century. The translation was largely the work of Jerome, who in 382 had been commissioned by Pope Damasus I to revise the Vetus Latina ("Old Latin") Gospels then in use by the Roman Church. Jerome, on his own initiative, extended this work of revision and translation to include most of the Books of the Bible, and once published, the new version was widely adopted and eventually eclipsed the Vetus Latina; so that by the 13th century, it took over from the former version the appellation of "versio vulgata"  (the "version commonly used") or vulgata for short, and in Greek as βουλγάτα ("Voulgata"). CONDITION: •Condition is Good/Very Good.

MOLIN, Girolamo (1500-1569)
Comin da Trino. 8vo (151x102 mm). (15, lacking the first blank leaf), 121 [i.e. 126, leaves 54, 63, 64, 107 and 108 repeated in numbering], (6) leaves. With a woodcut device on the title-page and at the end. Contemporary vellum, spine covered by a red paper with label and ink title, slightly rubbed and worn, a good and genuine copy. FIRST EDITION (variant issue in which the blank leaf Q7 is replaced by a bifolium containing a sonnet by Domenico Venier and the errata). The volume is dedicated by Celio Magno to Giulio Contarini (Zara, October 20, 1572) and also contains a life of Molino written by the painter Giovanni Mario Verdizzotti, a pupil of Titian. This verse collection represents a kind of summa of the Venetian neo-Petrarchism and contains at the end a "tombeau poétique' in Molino's memory, including verses by Lauro Badoer, Girolamo Fioretti, Federico Frangipane, Giorgio Gradenigo, Pietro Gradenigo, Nicolò Macheropio, Celio Magno, Domenico Vernier, and some anonymous authors (cf. E. Taddeo, Il manierismo letterario e i lirici veneziani del tardo Cinquecento, Rome, 1974, pp. 73-91). "Nel 1569 muore Girolamo Molino. Gli amici, Domenico Venier in primo luogo, promuovono la pubblicazione delle sue rime; Celio Magno le dedica a Giulio Contarini. Il compito di scrivere la vita dell'autore è affidata al Verdizotti. Anche in questo caso egli coglie l'occasione per dare al libro un particolare sapore. Si celebra la collaborazione fra grandi personaggi di generazioni diverse: si ricorda l'amicizia del giovane Molino con i vecchi maestri, il Bembo, Triphon Gabriele, il Trissino, … [Click Below for Full Description]

The work is illustrated with a portrait of the author and 128 engravings of which 17 plates engraved by Nicolò Nelli et Gaspare Oselli in addition to a double page engraving by Domenico Zenoi, representing the battle of Mühlberg. Each of the three parts contents an engraved title page representing a sophisticated structure, the first bearing the coat of arms of Philip II of Spain.Later binding in full parchment, gilt title in a triple gilt frame, a little label from the library pasted on the top left-hand side of the first board, sprinkled edges.The leaf HH2 was mistakenly numbered HH3. Scattered foxing.The book is a foundation in the research of heraldry, Le Imprese Illustri represents an exceptional encounter between an uncommon field of study impresa (heraldic badge) and the amour, lifted by a boom of printing techniques, of illustrated books.Divided in several books, the work opens with a theoretical approach for the study of impresa with the aim of demarcating this form of heraldry, very close to emblem, which is characterized by the combination of figure (the body) and motto (the soul). Ruscelli here refines his work in Le Discours, which he had written in 1556, upon the new edition of the first work which traits exclusively the impresa, la Ragionamento di Mons.

MAROLOIS, Samuel.
1572. Jordan 2389; STCN 082523983 (2 copies); this work not in Jähns; Sloos, Warfare. First edition of a work combining two of the best known works of Samuel Marolois (1572-1627): one on geometry and the other on fortification. Marolois was a well-known Dutch engineer and mathematician. His Geometria presents a thorough pictorial course of all aspects of geometry and its application to measurement, proportion, surveying, perspective, etc. It treats specifically the application of geometry to architecture and fortification. His Fortification ou architecture militaire, is richly illustrated and an important source for the Dutch art of fortification at the beginning of the 17th century. The woodcut illustrations in the text show many corners of fortresses with measurements of their angles and various calculations, but also some ground plans and tools for constructing a fortress. The engraved plates show complete ground plans of fortresses; the last plate depicts different types of cannons. [Attributes: First Edition]

BRAUN, Georg & HOGENBERG, Frans.
Köln: 1572, FIRST EDITION, Latin text. Original colour, slightly refreshed. 330 x 490mm. The earliest town plan of London to survive, a 'map-view' with the major buildings shown in profile, and no consideration for perspective. This example is from the first state of the plate, before the addition of the Royal Exchange, with 'West Mester' rather than 'West Muster' for Westminster and without 'Cum Privilegio' lower right. This state is particularly rare, as it only appeared in the first edition of the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum', 1572: before the issue of the first German and French-text editions (1574 & 1575) the plate had already been altered. The plan was engraved by Frans Hogenberg, probably reduced from a 15-or-20-sheet wall map commissioned by the merchants of the Hanseatic League, of which there is no known example. The League had significant commercial interests in England, benefiting from tax and customs concessions on wool and finished cloth, allowing them to control that trade in Colchester and other cloth-making centres. It is believed they commissioned the wall map in the 1550s to curry favour with Queen Mary I in an attempt to retain these concessions. Certainly the survey must predate 1561 because the Norman St Paul's Cathedral still has the spire destroyed by lightning that year and never replaced. Mary's death in 1588 made the large and expensive map superfluous, as her successor Elizabeth revoked the League's privileges. However the engraver Franz Hogenberg was allowed to copy the plan for his atlas of town plans, ensuring this view of Tudor London survived … [Click Below for Full Description]

EUCLID
Camillo Franceschini, Pesaro, 1572. First edition of “the most important Latin translation [of Euclid] . it was the foundation of most translations which followed it up to the time of Peyrard [1814]” (Heath, The Thirteen Books of Euclid’s Elements, Vol. 1, p. 104). Euclid’s Elements is the “oldest mathematical textbook still in common use today” (PMM). The Elements “exercised an influence upon the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible” (DSB). Federico Commandino was the most prolific Renaissance translator of Greek mathematical works, as well as the most mathematically competent. His translation was the first to be based upon a tolerably critical Greek original. Although thus far only the chief book-producing centers like Venice had been involved in printing Euclid, this new translation into Latin of the fifteen books of the Elements was produced in Pesaro, a provincial seaport on the Adriatic near Urbino. The first printed Latin translations of Euclid were the medieval translation from the Arabic by Campanus of Novara (Venice, 1482), followed by a Latin translation from the Greek by Bartolomeo Zamberti (Venice, 1505). These two translations, together with the editio princeps of the Greek (Basel, 1533), were the basis for all subsequent Latin editions for more than half a century, and for many translations after that. “However, the better part of this influence was interrupted suddenly and decisively by the fourth major version: the publication at Pesaro in 1572 of the Latin translation by Federico Commandino of Urbino. Commandino was clearly the m … [Click Below for Full Description]

"There has been to this day no substitute to the Thesaurus Graecus" (PMM). "Henri Estienne's magnum opus, the publication of which marked the great event of his career, as well as a high point in the annals of European scholarship." (Schreiber 181).With the renaissance, a period when Western lexicography made great advances, translators became increasingly involved in the production of dictionaries, for a number of reasons. The gaining interest in antiquity resulted in a renewed interest in Latin and Greek and European vernaculars were being strengthened with formal grammars. This intense linguistic activity was reflected in lexicographic advances with the publication of several monolingual dictionaries devoted to classical languages. "In case of Greek, the most remarkable work was the [the present work]. He was a distingued translator of such w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caro, Annibale; Giovanni Batista Caro, ed.
Appresso Aldo Manutio, 1572. First edition: Posthumous collection => from Aldus Manutius of Annibale Caro's historically useful letters to a variety of influential recipients throughout Italy, including Paolo Manutio, opening with a dedication from Giovanni Batista Caro to Girolamo Cardinal Correggio and closing with an index and three pages of errata. Poet Annibale Caro (1507-66), best known for his artful Italian translation of the Aeneid, also participated in one of the most vitriolic literary feuds of the Renaissance with Lodovico Castelvetro. This offering is the first of two volumes separately published three years apart. The text is neatly printed in single columns using a large italic font and roman headers with one decorative piece and two historiated woodcut initials; the title-page contains a variation of the Aldine device where the iconic anchor & dolphin appear within the Imperial charge of arms. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
