        Francofordiense Emporium, sive Francofordienses nundinae

      Estienne device 16 on title. 4 p.l., 31, 120 pp. 8vo, fine 17th-cent. vellum over boards. [Geneva]: Henri Estienne, 1574. [bound after]:--. De Abusu Linguae Graecae, in quibusdam vocibus quas Latina usurpat, Admonitio. A very fine sammelband, in wonderfully fresh condition, of three important works by Henri Estienne. I. First edition of one of the most celebrated contemporary accounts of the Frankfurt Fair by the greatest scholar-printer-bookseller of his generation: Henri Estienne. Estienne, who had participated in the Frankfurt Book Fair that year, thanks the consuls and members of the Senate of Frankfurt for their warm reception, and dedicates the volume to them. The work consists of praise of the city and its famous fair, which offered to the civilized world such precious riches: horses, arms, wines, food, spices, clothing, earthenware, metalware, and, of course, books. After a section on books and literature, Estienne ends with general praise of Germany, especially as the nation that gave to the world the art of printing: "No nation has contributed so great a benefit to letters since our redemption by Christ." Estienne's encomiastic essay is followed by a considerably longer section (120 pp.) consisting of a quite curious collection of Greek and Latin prose and verse pieces, mostly on the subject of drunkenness -- probably to celebrate the closing festivities of the Fair. The majority of these pieces are from the pen of Henri Estienne himself, but also include ten epigrams from the Greek Anthology (also on the subject of wine and drunkenness) translated by Joseph Scaliger. Estienne issued the Francofordiense Emporium only once, and it was not reprinted for three centuries, consequently becoming an extremely desirable and rare book which today seldom comes on the market. II. "First edition of the first grammatical treatise published by Henri Estienne; the work consists of a sort of 'Antibarbarus' of the errors to be avoided when converting Greek words and names into Latin."-Schreiber, p. 137. III. "First edition of Henri Estienne's first work written in the vernacular, and one of the classics of French 16th-century prose. It is the first work in Henri's trilogy on the defense and glorification of the French language. In the present work Henri claims the superiority of French over all other languages, except Greek, which, according to him, is the most perfect language and which French most resembles... "Henri Estienne's French works have placed him among the greatest French prose writers of the Renaissance... "This first edition is very rare and contains passages (e.g. against the Pope) which were suppressed from the second edition, printed in Paris four years later by Henri's brother, Robert II... "Henri's preface to Henri de Mesmes contains several interesting autobiographical details, including his sorrow over the recent death of his (first) wife, Marguerite Pillot -- the following year he was to marry Barbe de Wille."-Schreiber, pp. 141-42. ❧ I. Pollard & Ehrman, pp. 70-71 & no. 40. Renouard 141, no. 2 (cf. p. 407-"devenu rare"). Simon, Bibliotheca Bacchica, II, 235. Schreiber 189-"this famous little book." II. Schreiber 150. III.

In De Institutione reipublicae, Patrizi discusses how public speaking may influence the civil discussion and the ability to manipulate people through eloquence and rhetoric to the ends of the state (rather than simply by force along). Patrizi served as governor of Foligno in the Papal States and bishop of Gaeta. His political writings on had influence on the ideas of civic Humanism and is considered a predecessor of Machiavelli.

        Purgantium aliarumque eo facientium, tum et Radicum, Convolvulorum ac deleteriarum herbarum historiae Libri IIII.

      Antwerp, C. Plantin, 1574. 8vo (165 x 115mm). pp. 505, (1), (6, index), with 221 full-page woodcuts by G. van Kampen after P. van der Borcht. Contemporary overlapping vellum, sides with gilt border and fleurons at corners, frontcover with gilt monogram 'P E F', old small piece of paper pasted on title (not affecting letters). A fine and attractively bound copy of this first edition. "This herbal was a third step towards the preparation of the 'Stirpium historiae pemptades sex'. As was the case with the first two preparatory herbals, there was a preference for a small, but handy booklet. Four groups of plants were described in four books and 120 chapters: plants with laxative properties, plants with medicinal roots, climbing plants and poisonous plants. The majority of the woodblocks used for the woodcuts of these plants, were cut by Gerard Janssen van Kampen probably according to drawings by Peeter van der Borcht. Meanwhile Dodoens had also discovered new species that, according to him, rather belonged in the two herbals published before. The new study material and the respective illustrations were therefore added to the herbal in a separate contribution. Although this appendix was a part of the herbal, it was given a separate title page and divided into two parts. A first part, subdivided into 33 chapters, showed 64 plants. An additional 17 illustrations, mainly Umbelliferae, were added to the 15 chapters of the second part" (Botany in the Low Countries no. 33). Hunt 116; Nissen BBI, 515.

        De proportione proportionum disputatio.Rome: Giacomo Mazzochi, 1516.

      Extremely rare first edition of this influential and controversial work, an important step towards the arithmetization of the theory of proportion.<br/><br/> In the Eudoxian theory of proportion, treated in Book V of Euclid's <i>Elements</i>, proportion is a relation between magnitudes of the same kind, and is not identified with a numerical value. Thus, the ratio of the diagonal of a square to a side is a valid concept in the Euclidean theory of proportion, although it is not identified with a number as this number would (in modern terms) be irrational. The evolution from proportion to numerical ratio began with Umar al-Khayyam in the 12th century and was continued by Nicole Oresme in the 14th. The most decisive progress in the modern era was made by Clavius in his great commentary on Euclid (first published in 1574). Clavius there criticized and completed the Euclidean theory of proportion, and took the first steps toward its arithmetization. According to Rommevaux (p. 72), Clavius's critique was 'certainly inspired' by the present work of Ridolfi, which treats proportions as quantities, so that proportions are just the same as proportions of quantities. <br/><br/> Ridolfi's work was attacked by Jean Fernel in his <i>De proportionibus libri duo</i> (1528), who argued that treating proportions as quantities was inconsistent with Euclid, Book V, and that it fails to see when these proportions of proportions are irrational (although understanding this had been one of the major achievements of Oresme). History found in Ridolfi's favour, however, when the arithmetization of the theory of proportion was completed in the next century. <br/><br/> S.

Andra upplagan av Henrik Rantzaus viktiga redogörelse för det Ditmarskiska kriget 1559. Den första utkom i Basel 1570. Den finns även publicerad i 1575 och 1583 års utökade upplagor av Albert Krantz "Rerum Germanicarum historici". Förordet är undertecknat med Rantzaus pseudonym Christianus Cilicius Cimber. Henrik Rantzau (1526-98) var ståthållare över Slesvig-Holstein och bosatt på slottet Breitenburg. Hans skildring av kriget då fadern, Johan Rantzau, erövrade landskapet Ditmarsken, vilket kom att delas mellan Danmark och Holstein-Gottorp, är en viktig källa till kriget, och till hertigdömet Holsteins historia. Rantzau var mycket bildad och skrev även en historik över Fredrik II, "Res gestæ Friderici II" (1589). Hans berömda bibliotek på Breitenburg skingrades efter att Wallensteins trupper plundrat slottet 1627. Orientalisten och lärdomsgiganten Johan Gabriel Sparwenfeld (1655-1727) reste 1677 ut på sin första resa och passerade på hemresan Köpenhamn, där han mellan 2 mars och 6 april köpte åtskilliga böcker, bl.a. kung Valdemars jordebok och troligen denna (se Jacobowsky s. 46ff). Under alla sina följande resor kom han att införskaffa mängder av böcker och handskrifter. Han donerade sedan många av sina böcker till olika bibliotek, t.ex. sällsynta böcker och manuskript på arabiska, persiska etc. till Uppsala

Among the flowers he describes are the rose, violet, lily, marguerite, marigold, amaranth, iris, narcissus, anemone and carnation and sweet-smelling herbs such as thyme, marjoram, lavender and lavender cotton' (Lucia Tongiorgi Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora, p. 156).Rembert Dodoens (1517-1585), Flemish physician and botanist.
