        Monumenta sepulcrorum cum epigraphis ingenio et doctrina excellentium virorum aliorumq[ue] tam prisci quam nostri seculi memorabilium hominum: de archetypis expressa.

      [Breslau, Crispin Scharffenberg], 1574.. Gest., ill. Titel, (10) SS., 129 Tafeln (num. 1-125 sowie 3*, 13*, 21* und 22*). Halbpergamentband um 1700. Dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. Folio.. Erste Ausgabe des Hauptwerks des polnischen Zeichners und Kupferstechers, komplett mit allen 129 Tafeln wie vorliegend von größter Seltenheit. Auftraggeber der vorliegenden Publikation war der kaiserliche Kammerrat Sygfried Rybisch aus Breslau; unser Exemplar trägt am Titel ein sonst nicht nachweisbares kaiserliches Druckprivileg in zeitgenössischer Federkalligraphie, durch welches das Werk auf den Zeitraum von acht Jahren vor Nachdruck geschützt war. Die Ergänzung "Cum Gratia et Privilegio Caes[aris] Ma[jes]t[atis] at VIII annos" am Titel ist in den uns zugänglichen Vergleichsexemplaren weder wie hier in handschriftlicher noch in gedruckter Form zu finden. - Fendts Darstellungen von Grabdenkmälern der Antike bis zum 16. Jh. wurden noch bis ins späte 17. Jahrhundert wiederholt unter dem Titel "Monumenta illustrium virorum" aufgelegt. Allerdings war bereits die zweite Ausgabe von 1585, die bei Feyerabend in Frankfurt mit einem Titel von Jost Amman erschienen ist, auf 125 Kupfertafeln verkürzt. - Gezeigt sind Beispiele aus Basel, Bologna, Brescia, Cadiz, Como, Ferrara, Florenz, Freiburg, Freising, Krakau, Mailand, Neapel, Padua, Pavia, Perugia, Pisa, Pistoia, Pozzuoli, Ravenna, Riva di Garda, Rom, Stuttgart, Tübingen, Verona, Volterra, Wien und Wittenberg, darunter die Gräber von Alciatus, Cicero, Dante, Erasmus, Marsilio Ficino, Grynaeus, Hutten, Livius, Lukrez, Melanchthon, Otto von Freising, Paulus Jovius, Poggio Fiorentino, Reuchlin, Vergil und Zasius. - Einband berieben; innen stellenweise etwas braunfleckig bzw. wasserrandig.

Vogti Cat. libr. rar. p. no. 278" etc.) sowie am Schluß einem 3seitigen hs. "Index alphabeticus monumentorum". Feuerlein, der in seiner Vaterstadt als Ratskonsulent, an der Universität Altdorf aber als Prokanzler wirkte, galt als "ein Mann, der ausser einer soliden Rechtswissenschaft auch eine grosse Stärke in der gelehrten Geschichte besitzet" (Weidlich, zit. n. DBA I 316, 225). "Da es ihm an Vermögen nicht fehlte, so sammelte er sich eine solche ansehnliche und auserlesene Bibliothek, die in allen Fächern der Rechtsgelehrsamkeit, der Geschichte, Alterthümer, Philologie, u.s.w. so reichlich besetzt war, dergleichen man zu seiner Zeit in Deutschland bey Privatpersonen nur selten antraf. Da man in derselben über 18.000 Bände zählen konnte, so wußte er doch von jedem Buch den Inhalt und die Eigenschaften desselben anzugeben" (Hirsching II, zit. n. ebd., 229; vgl. auch Will, Nürnb. Gelehrten-Lex. I, 428f.). Ein Katalog seiner Sammlung erschien noch zu seinen Lebzeiten in 2 Bänden (Schwabach, 1768-79; vgl. auch Bogeng III, Anm. 240); nach seinem Tode kamen zwei Verkaufskataloge heraus (1793 und 1803). Nicht im ABPC, auf deutschen Nachkriegsauktionen nur zwei vollständige Exemplare nachweisbar (1959 und 1999 [Donaueschingen]), letzteres belegbar ohne das vorliegende Druckprivileg. - VD 16, F 727.

        Dialogho de' giuochi che nelle veghie Sanesi si usano di fare. Del materiale intronato.

In 8 de [16]-17-288pp., reliure en plein vélin souple de l'époque, titre manuscrit à l'encre noire de l'époque sur le dos, plats très légèrement salis et tachés, coiffes un peu fragiles, une phrase écrite sur le premier contreplat: "A di 19 di Ferraio 1574 (?) 3C.? Da Mo. Valeriano libraio" et sur la dernière page "Al servitio delli Amici di Marcantonio Tolomei Senese", bon et bel exemplaire. Seconde édition de ce traité divisé en deux parties, la première consistant à distinguer en faisant une liste et en décrivant de façon précise les diverses pratiques de jeux d'esprit dans un cadre festif en insistant bien sur les différences entre ceux-ci: jeux de mémoires, de puzzles, pratiqués par un groupe de personnes, qui, sur la proposition d'un chef agirait en conséquence. Par jeux, l'auteur pense à ceux dit de société, permettant l'épanouissement autonome, ces jeux étant pratiqués lors du carnaval à Sienne. La seconde partie, est plus variée et tente, sur le modèle du ''Livre du Courtisan'' de Baldassare Castiglione, d'esquisser le portrait idéal du parfait académicien, s'intéressant tout particulièrement à la créativité littéraire, à l'écriture de nouvelles. Girolamo Bargagli (1537-1589) fut juriste et membre de l'académie des Intronati à Sienne. En 1565 il fut nommé juge à Florence, puis en 1574 il fut appelé comme auditeur au Tribunal civil de Gênes, enfin il exerça le métier d'avocat dans sa ville natale jusqu'à sa mort. Ce volume fut la propriété de Marcantonio Tolomei, collègue de l'auteur à l'université de droit de Sienne. Celui-ci obtint son doctorat en droit en 1566, en 1567-1568 il enseigna les Institutions de Justinien dans l'université dans laquelle Girolamo Bargagli était lecteur extraordinaire en Droit.

Justus Lipsius' (1547-1606) first edition of the works of Tacitus (c. 55-120), preceding his 1584-edition of Opera cum notis (Antwerp 1584). Justus Lipsius was one of the great scholars in both philosophy and political science of the Renaissance of Northern Europe. Tacitus' History and Annals covers the period from the accession of the Roman emperor Tiberius in 14 before Christ to the death of Domitian in 97. his works were first printed in Venice in the early 1470's and exercised great influence on Renaissance historians. The edition by Lipsius was reprinted 19 times and is considered "one of the monuments of sixteenth-century scholarship. In a life much vexed by the violence of government, (Lipsius) found much, as his notes declare, in common with Tacitus's ironic and cynical records of first-century Rome" (PMM93)

        Dialogo de Givochi che nelle vegghie sanesi si usano fare. Del Materiale Intronato. Allillv Strissima, et Eccellentissima Signora Donna Isabella de' Medici Orsina Duchessa di Bracciano

      In Venetia, Appresso Gio. Antonio Bertano [from last page of text], 1574. 12mo (in 4s and 8s), 145 x 95 mms., pp. [16], 17 - 288, engraved woodcut on title-page, contemporary vellum. A very good to fine copy. Bargagli (?1537 - 1586) published this very popular book first in 1572, and this is the second edition. The "games" are listed in the table of contents in more-or-less alphabetical order, "serious" followed "light" or "pleasant," with appropriate references in the margin. The games as such are exercises in mental agility, using one's intellectual skills for solving puzzles, enigmas, etc. A certain amount of intellectual agility would also be required to follow the text, with its long sentences separated by occasional full stops (periods). "Materiale Intronato" is Bargagli's pseudonym; he was a member of the Accademia degl'Intronati, and the dialogue takes place among imaginary members of the Accademia. George Irving Dale in his "Games and Social Pastimes in the Spanish Drama of the Golden Age" (Hispanic Review, 1940) calls attention to the number of games that Bargagli describes, their appearance in Spanish drama and elsewhere, observing "The first game in Bargagli's book of games is that of cross purposes or themes, "del proposito," in which each player whispers something to his neighbor, who in turn whispers an answer and another question until each player has had a turn; after which the questions and answers are repeated aloud for the pleasure of the company. Bargagli mentions that the game is described in Ariosto's Orlando Furioso and cites the passage. This game was utilized by Cervantes in his Galatea. The dramatists do not seem to have made any use of it."

        Littleton Tenures in Englishe. Cum Priuilegio

[London: In Fletestrete within Temple Barre at the Signe of the Hand and Starre by Rychard Tottyl, 1574]. 142 ff. Lacking the two final unfoliated leaves, one containing the colophon, the other a blank. Octavo (5" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf, blind rules to boards, recently rebacked and recornered, blind rules and gilt title to spine, ties lacking, endpapers renewed. Toning to text, occasional faint dampstaining to outer margins. Early annotations and later signatures to title page and its verso, interior otherwise clean. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton&#39;s Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases.
