        La Sacra Famiglia riceve un cesto di frutta da una giovane donna

      1575 - Bulino, firmato in lastra in alto a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Francesco Salviati. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione, sebbene priva di indicazioni sull’inventore del soggetto, deriva da Francesco Salviati e può essere ricondotta agli inizi del periodo romano di Diana Scultori, intorno al 1575-1576. La datazione e l’attribuzione al Salviati sono possibili grazie ad un’altra incisione di Diana, dello stesso soggetto - in controparte rispetto a questa e con alcune varianti - datata in lastra 1583 e con un’iscrizione che indica espressamente Francesco Salviati quale inventor del disegno. In passato, Bartsch, Brulliot e Nagler, non conoscendo l’incisione del 1583, ne avevano ipotizzato una derivazione da Primaticcio. La scena mostra la Sacra Famiglia che riceve in dono un cesto di frutta da una giovane donna, alle cui spalle si mostra, quasi timidamente, un bambino. A fare da sfondo, delle architetture. Sul piedistallo a sinistra, accanto alle figure, si legge la firma DIANA. Engraving, signed at upper left. After Francesco Salviati. A magnific impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, very good conditions. The work comes from Francesco Salviati and can be traced back to the early Roman period of Diana Scultori, circa 1575-1576. The dating and attribution to the Salviati are possible thanks to another engraving of Diana, of the same subject - in counterpart with respect to this and with some variations - dated 1583 in the plate with an inscription that indicates expressly Francesco Salviati as inventor of the drawing. In the past, Bartsch, Nagler and Brulliot, not knowing the engraving of 1583, it had assumed a derivation after Primaticcio. The scene shows the Holy Family who receives the gift of a fruit basket from a young woman, behind which shows, almost shyly, a child. In the background, the architecture. On the pedestal to the left, next to the figures, it reads the signature DIANA. Bartsch, XV, 14; Nagler, V, p. 420; Bellini, p. 187, 16. Dimensioni 166 236mm

        Description Generale de Toute la France

      Parigi 1575 - Carta tratta dalla celebre La Cosmographie Universelle de tout le Monde, traduzione francese della Cosmographia di Sebastian Muenster. La carta deriva da quella contenuta nella prima edizione del "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" di Ortelius, 1570. A differenza del Muenster, questa opera è pubblicata in una sola edizione, e risulta pertanto molto rara. Le carte incluse sono differenti, e derivano da Ortelius, Braun & Hogenberg oltre che dal Muenster. Alcuni legni sono invece ripresi utilizzando le matrici pubblicate per la prima volta nel 1552 nella Cosmografia di Lione da Guèroult & Balthazar Arnoullet (1517-1556), nel Premier livre des figure set pourtraitz des villes plus illustre set renommées d’Europe, contenente 9 immagini urbane, perlopiù copiate dalla Cosmographia di Sebastian Muenster. Silografia, in buone condizioni. Rara. In 1575, François de Belleforest published a new edition of the Cosmographie Universelle of Münster (Germany). One section of city maps which in this work was reprinted, and this was the case for this map engraved in wood with finesse by Cruche.Woodcut, cut in the right side, in good condition.

        I Vestigi dell’Antichità di Roma Raccolti et Ritratti in Perspettiva con ogni diligentia da Stefano Dv Perac Parisino

      1575 - Suite completa di 41 incisioni ad acquaforte e bulino, 1575, firmate in lastra nel secondo foglio, nella dedicatoria a Giacomo Buoncompagni. Esemplari nella prima edizione, edita a Roma da Lorenzo Vaccari. Magnifiche prove, ricche di toni, impresse su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame ed applicate su supporto cartaceo, rilegate in album del XVII secolo. Etienne Duperac, nativo di Bordeaux o Parigi, si trasferisce presto a Venezia, dove apprende l’arte dell’incisione realizzando vari soggetti da Tiziano, principalmente per l’editore Giovanni Francesco Camocio. Arriva a Roma nel 1559 dove si dedica allo studio dell’architettura e delle antichità, con particolare attenzione alle opere di Michelangelo. A Roma conosce Onofrio Panvinio, archeologo ed antiquario, che lo influenza e lo introduce allo studio delle antichità romane. Come tutti gli artisti provenienti dal Nord Europa, rimane affascinato dalla maestosità delle rovine romane, decidendo di studiarle e raffigurarle. Le precedenti rappresentazioni dei monumenti di Roma, ad esempio quelle eseguite da Hieronimus Cock intorno al 1550, erano pittoriche ed arricchite da elementi di fantasia. La notevole importanza delle vedute di Roma del Duperac sta nel fatto che furono rappresentate con assoluta precisione archeologica e topografica, tanto da essere oggi studiate con grande attenzione dagli studiosi di archeologia, poiché spesso rappresentano monumenti e siti oggi andati perduti. Gli esemplari della prima edizione delle vedute del Duperac, sono assolutamente rari. Magnifico set, omogeneo ed in eccellente stato di conservazione. Suite of 41 etchings with engraving, 1575, signed in plate in the second sheet, in the dedication to Giacomo Buoncompagni. Example in the first edition, published in Rome by Lorenzo Vaccari. Magnificent impressions, printed with tone on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark and laid down on paper, bound in albums of the seventeenth century. Etienne Duperac, a native of Bordeaux or Paris, he soon moved to Venice, where he learned the art of making various subjects by Titian, mainly for the publisher Giovanni Francesco Camocio. He arrived in Rome in 1559 where he devoted himself to the study of architecture and antiquities, with special attention to the works of Michelangelo. In Rome knows Onofrio Panvinio, archaeologist and antiquarian who influences him and introduced him to the study of Roman antiquities. Like all artists from Northern Europe, was fascinated by the majesty of the Roman ruins and decided to study them. The above representations of the monuments of Rome, such as those performed by Hieronymus Cock in 1550, were painted and embellished with elements of fantasy. The great importance of the views of Rome Duperac lies in the fact that they were represented with absolute precision archaeological and topographical, as to be now studied with great attention by scholars of archeology, monuments and sites as they often are now lost. The copies of the first edition of the views of Duperac are absolutely rare. Magnificent set, homogeneous and in excellent condition. Robert Dusmenil, Peintre Graveur Francais, vol. VIII, pp. 92-99, 1-40; Reed & Wallace, Italian Etchers of the Renaissance & Barocque, p. 83,84. Dimensioni 375 213mm [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Puteoli / Baiae

      Braun & Hogenberg, Cologne 1575 - View. Uncolored copper engraving. Image measures 11.5" x 19.25" These two bird's-eye views, Pozzuoli (Puteoli) above and Baia (Baiae) below, are together on one sheet. They show both cities as located on the Gulf of Naples. The numerous ships around Pozzuoli reference its history as an important Roman port, while in the view of Baia, the remains of an ancient Roman thermal bath alludes to the city's prized springs. Small figures gesture animatedly while tending to the tasks of daily life on the Italian coast. The print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617. Latin text on verso. It is in very good condition with some wear, particularly to the edges of the print. Ink stain near the upper right corner as printed. 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. These views demonstrate the high quality of their work.

      Rouan: Martin le mesgissier, 1575. FIRST EDITION. THE FIRST FRENCH BOOK ON NAVIGATION. Woodcut printer's device on title, full-page woodcut portrait of author facing impressive full-page woodcut coat-of-arms. With 20 text woodcuts, including illustrations of instruments, and 3 tables. Nineteenth-century vellum; small repairs to title-page and to lower corner of coat-of-arms. FIRST EDITION of this extremely rare treatise, the first work printed in France on navigation and one of the earliest attempts to determine longitude at sea. As a mathematician and instrument-maker, Bessard believed this could be accomplished by fixing one's position vis-a-vis the stars; his instruments, which are illustrated here, support this conclusion. Notwithstanding, he was well aware of the needs of seamen, and his methods for determining longitude at sea were successfully followed by navigators and seamen. An early description of South America is also included, undoubtedly drawn from Bessard's first hand experience.Bessard (also Bossard), born in Putot-en-Auge, became an accomplished mathematician and designer of navigational instruments, publishing in 1572 L'aigle-compas de T. de Bessard, d'auge en Normandie. However, most of his life was passionately spent in travel, both at sea and by land, and Bessard is remembered as one of the most renowned voyagers in sixteenth-century France. We could locate only three other copies of this work: British Library (STC-French, 51), the Bibliotheque Nationale (12,647) and the Crone Collection of the Scheepvaart, the Dutch Maritime Museum (Crone Library, 77), which copy appears incomplete.

        Holy Byble

      1575. (BIBLE). The holy Byble, conteyning the olde Testament and the newe. London: William Norton, 1575. Small folio (8 by 11-1/2 inches), contemporary full paneled reverse calf rebacked, raised bands, red morocco spine label, contemporary brass catches and renewed brass clasps. $19,000.Sixth edition (first small folio edition) of the “Bishops’ Bible”—the Anglican translation commissioned to check the Geneva Bible’s influence and “considered one of the great achievements of the 16th century” (J. Paul Getty Museum, A Thousand Years of the Bible, 70)—with much woodcut ornamentation, complete in contemporary reverse paneled calf boards.Queen Elizabeth I ""encouraged a renewed interest in the English Bible, but the Great Bible [prepared by Miles Coverdale and published in 1540] was still the version authorized for church use. It was clear that the Geneva Bible [published 1560 by Calvinist exiles in Switzerland] was, in many ways, a superior translation; some of its notes, however, were offensive to the Crown. Consequently, it seemed advisable to undertake a revision of the Great Bible. Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury, headed the revision committee, which included many bishops and well-known biblical scholars. Few changes were made in the Old Testament. There is evidence of genuine scholarly learning in the changes to the New Testament, where Parker himself worked… The new authorized version was called the 'Bishops' Bible because of the dominant role they played"" (Bible 100 Landmarks 63). First published 1568. The 1602 edition would serve as the basis of the King James Bible (1611). This edition ornamented with elaborate woodcut title page and part titles (each with a mermaid admiring herself in a hand mirror and the motto ""God saue the Queene;"" the New Testament part title includes small cartouches for each Evangelist); decorative initials; maps before Acts and Romans; small portraits before Romans, James, 1 Peter, Jude and Revelation; and 17 small in-text illustrations in Revelation.

        Opuscula mathematica; nunc primum in lucem aedita, cum rerum omnium notatu dignarum. Indice locupletissimo. Pagell huic proxime contigua, eorum catalogus est. [Volume 2:] Arithmeticorum libri duo, nunc primum in lucem editi. Cum rerum omnium notabilium. Indice copiossisimo.

      Venice: Franciscum Franciscium Senensem, 1575. First and only edition (see Rara Aritmetica) of the first clear statement of the principle of mathematical induction. "Francesco Maurolico is generally recognized to have been one of the foremost mathematicians of the sixteenth century" (Rosen); Cajori has called him 'the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century'. Only a few of his many works were printed, the present volume containing the majority of his published scientific writings in eight treatises, each published here for the first time: De sphaera liber unus (in which he criticized Copernicus); Computus Ecclesiasticus in summam collectus; Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum; Tractatus de lineis horariis; Euclidis propositiones elementorum; Musicae traditione; De lineis horariis; and Arithmeticorum. "The greatest number of Maurolico's mathematical writings are gathered in the Opuscula mathematica; indeed, the second volume of that work, Arithmeticorum libri duo, is wholly devoted to that subject and contains, among other things, some notable research on the theory of numbers. This includes, in particular, a treatment of polygonal numbers that is more complete than that of Diophantus, to which Maurolico added a number of simple and ingenious proofs. L. E. Dickson has remarked upon Maurolico's argument that every perfect number is hexagonal, and therefore traingular, while Baldassarre Boncompagni noted his proof of a peculiarity of the succession of odd numbers... "Among the topics related to mathematics in the Opuscula are chronology (the treatise 'Computus ecclesiasticus') and gnomonics (in two treatises, both entitled 'De lineis horariis,' one of which also discusses conics). The work also contains writing on Euclid's Elements... Of particular interest, too is a passage on a correlation between regular polyhedrons, which was commented upon by J.H.T. Müller, and later by Moritz Cantor" (DSB IX, 191). In Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum, Maurolico described the principal astronomical instruments and discussed their theory, use, and history--a subject similar to that treated in one of his first publications, the rare and little-known tract Quadrati fabrica et eius usus (Venice, 1546). Several of the results on polygonal and square numbers in the Arithmeticorum are proved by making use of the principle of mathematical induction (e.g. Book I, Proposition 15), the first time this principle had been clearly stated. Pascal, who used induction extensively in his Traité du Triangle Arithmetique, learned of the principle from Maurolico, for in the proof of one proposition he writes 'Cela est aisé par Maurolic'. It had in fact been used earlier by Euclid, Levi ben Gerson and others, but without clearly stating the principle involved. The term 'induction' was first used in this context by John Wallis in 1655. The manuscript of the book was sent to the bookseller Giovanni Comisino in Venice in 1569, but the book was not in press until November 1574. Even then there were further delays, and the book was not finally published until 26 July 1575, four days after Maurolico's death. Some bibliographies mention editions of 1574, 1580 and 1585, but in 'The Editions of Maurolico's mathematical works' (Scripta Mathematica 24 (1959) 59-76), Edward Rosen has shown that there was only one edition of the Opuscula and its 'companion piece' the Arithmeticorum (though one or two of the works were reprinted separately later). See also Smith's Rara Arithmetica, p.349-50. Maurolico's family came from Greece, from which they had fled to Sicily to escape the Turks. Maurolico learned Greek, as well as astronomy, from his father. In 1521 he was ordained priest, and in 1550 the governor of Messina conferred upon Maurolico the abbey of Santa Maia del Parto. Maurolico also held a number of civil commissions in Messina, and like his father became master of the Messina mint. Most importantly, he gave public lectures on mathematics at the University of Messina, where he was appointed professor in 1569. Maurolico himself referred to a vast literary production, but only a few of his works were printed, although these are enough to show him to have been an outstanding scholar. In addition to writing his own books, Maurolico translated, commented upon, reconstructed, and edited works by a number of ancient authors, including Apollonius, Archimedes, Autolycus, Menelaus and Theodosius. Honeyman 2182; Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p.349-50; Adams M919; Macclesfield 1344; Riccardi II, 141. On the use of the principle of mathematical induction by Maurolico, see G. Vacca: "Maurolycus, the First Discover of the Principle of Mathematical Induction," Bulletin of the American Mathematial Society, 16 (1909-1910) 70-73. Two volumes bound as one (as issued). 4to: 214 x 160 mm. Pp. [20], 285; [1: blank], [8], 175, [1], [18]. Large printer's device on each title, woodcut initials and type ornaments, numerous woodcut diagrams in text and margins. Contemporary limp vellum, spine heavely worn but entirely unrestored. Title page with numerous contemporary inscriptions and ancient stamp. In all a fine unsophisticated copy.

        Cosmographia universale, nella quale secondo che n'hanno parlato ipiu veraci scrittori, son designati i sitti di tutti gli paësi. I siti de tutte le parti del mondo habitabile, & le proprie doti: le tauole topographice delle regioni.

      Köln, Arnoldo Byrckmanno, 1575. ____ Seconde édition en italien de la plus célèbre cosmographie de la Renaissance. Elle est illustrée par 900 bois gravés et plus de 50 cartes ou vues sur double page, trois vues dépliantes. EXEMPLAIRE COMPLET, ce qui est rare pour ce livre dans lequel les "amateurs" se sont fournis en cartes et illustrations au cours des siècles. Traduit en cinq langues, cet ouvrage a connu pas moins de 35 éditions de 1544 à 1628, un immense succès pour l'époque. La première carte est une mappemonde, signée "DK", de David Kandel. (Shirley, The mapping of the world 92). Les sources auxquelles Münster a puisé pour la composition de sa carte du monde restent à définir car lui-même ne donne aucune indication à ce sujet. Skelton pense que Münster a dû, pour le tracé de l'Ancien Monde, avoir en sa possession une carte du monde d'origine espagnole datée entre 1525-1529, qui, très probablement, ressemblerait à la Carta Universel, 1529, de Diego Riberio. En ce qui concerne le Nord de l'Océan Atlantique et l'Amérique on peut affirmer que le matériel cartographique qui était à la disposition de Münster correspondait au portulan de 1527 de Vesconte de Kaggiolo et à la carte du monde de Hieronimo de Verrazzano, qui à leur tour, s'inspiraient des voyages et des explorations de Giovanni de Verrazzano entre 1522 et 1524. L'influence de la carte de Hieronimo de Verrazzano se manifeste dans l'emploi par Münster des noms "Francisa", "Canada" et "Terra Florida". Marque de l'imprimeur sur le titre, portrait d'Erasme p. 149. Des erreurs de pagination. Deux feuillets à peine effrangés in-fine. Très bel exemplaire, frais.***** Second Italian edition of the most famous cosmography of the Renaissance. Illustrated by more than 50 maps or views and 900 woodcuts. Very fine and complete copy. "A major work in the revival of geographic thought in 16th-century Europe. Münster acquired the material for his book in three ways. He used all available literary sources. He tried to obtain original manuscript material for description of the countryside and of villages and towns. Finally, he obtained further material on his travels (primarily in south-west Germany, Switzerland, and Alsace). Cosmographia not only contained the latest maps and views of many well-known cities, but also included an encyclopaedic amount of detail about the known - and unknown - world, and was undoubtedly one of the most widely read books of its time. Aside from the well-known maps present in the Cosmographia, the text is thickly sprinkled with vigorous views: portraits of kings and princes, costumes and occupations, habits and customs, flora and fauna, monsters, wonders, and horrors."

      Bordeaux, Simon Millanges, (1575-1580). ____ Première édition des commentaires d'Elie Vinet. Exemplaire du poète Louis Martel, de Rouen, avec des annotations de sa main. On trouve son ex-libris manuscrit en haut de la page de titre, daté de 1585, et, plus bas, sa devise "Illustra Deus Oculum" qui est l'anagramme de Ludovicus Martellus. Louis Martel était proche des poètes de la Pléïade. On trouve quelques uns de ses vers dans les recueil de poésies de son temps. Par exemple, dans les "Oeuvres poétiques de Remy Belleau" (1578), ou dans le "Discours de la vie de Pierre de Ronsard" (1586). Il est aussi l'éditeur de "Poetae tres elegantissimi" (1582). Il enseignait les Belles-Lettres à Rouen et comptait parmi les "plus savants hommes de son siècle" selon le père Farin dans son "Histoire de la ville de Rouen". Martel possédait une fort belle collection de livres et plusieurs manuscrits médiévaux à la BNF portent son ex-libris. Une partie de sa collection est passée ensuite dans celle de Jean Bigot. Au feuillet Aa1verso, on trouve un distique de sa main, "Qua jacet hoc geminos peperit Lucilla, sed aequa / Secti forte, patri vivens, matri manet alter", au sujet d'un épitaphe d'Ausone sur une certaine Lucille, qui mourut, enfantant deux jumeaux, l'un vivant, l'autre mort. Martel a aussi retranscrit des vers, sur la même page et sur le même sujet, de Petrus Loërius et de Pierre Le Loyer. Notons que les oeuvres et mélanges poétiques" de Pierre Le Loyer (1579) contiennent des "Vers à Pierre Le Loyer" de Louis Martel. Enfin, nous avons repéré 16 notes marginales de sa fine écriture en marge du texte d'Ausone ou du copieux commentaire d'Elie Vinet. Certaines sont en grec. [feuillets : d2 - l2 - n3v -n4r- o1 - Aa1v -Bb4v - Hh3v -Ll1v -Ll2 - Mm4 - Oo1v - Oo2 -Ss2 - Yy4 - Zz2v] Autre ex-libris sur la page de titre, qui a été rogné à la reliure : Antoine de Lam? 1620?. La date de 1575 figure au verso du titre et celle de 1580 à la fin.

Titre en noir et rouge avec la marque de Millange. Exemplaire complet des deux feuillets (A2) qui semblent rares: Martialis Campani medici burdigalensis (...) explicatio philosophica in epigrama decimum Ausoni. » Le saintongeois Elie Vinet (1509-1587) a été l'un des plus brillants maitres du Collège de Guyenne. Ce collège était au centre de la vie intellectuelle de Bordeaux et de sa région. Montaigne qui l'a qualifié de « meilleur de France », y entra comme élève en 1539, l'année même où Vinet commença à y professer. « Si aucun texte ne nous renseigne sur les rapports de Vinet avec Michel de Montaigne et Etienne de La Boétie, il est probable qu'il entretint avec eux des relations, sans qu'on puisse affirmer qu'il les eut pour élèves au Collège de Guyenne. » [L. Desgraves.] Vinet a été l'éditeur de plus de 43 éditions différentes d'ouvrages qui pour la plupart, on servi à l'enseignement qu'il dispensait. C'est lui qui encouragea l'un de ses collègues, Simon Millanges a fonder une imprimerie qui publia plus de six cents ouvrages dont les « Essais ».

EXCESSIVELY RARE FIRST EDITION of Paré's collected works, with several illustrations printed here for the first time. Only two complete copies recorded at auction in the past 30 years (e.g. Sothebys, May 18, 2010, sold for ?132,750). Most copies that have appeared on the market had issues such as lacking or supplied text leaves. The work is profusely illustrated with almost 300 woodcut illustrations, including anatomical and surgical woodcuts, as well as woodcuts of "monsters" and zoological oddities. "Paré, of humble Huguenot beginnings and poorly educated, became the sixteenth century's outstanding surgeon and the greatest military surgeon before his fellow countryman, Larrey, more than two hundred years later. He began his studies as a barber-surgeon and at age nineteen, while working as a surgical dresser and assistant in a Paris hospital, he began to acquire the fund of practical knowledge for which he became a legend in his own time. Probably his best known innovations were his discarding the use of boiling oil in gunshot wounds and the reintroduction of simple ligature instead of red hot cautery after amputation. He invented many surgical and dental instruments and was especially adept at devising ingenious artificial limbs" (Heirs of Hippocrates). "He was the first to suggest that syphilis is a cause of aneurysm. He popularized the truss, introducted artifical limbs, and (in dentistry) re-implantation of the teeth" (Garrison-Morton). The 'Oeuvres' was Paré's pride and joy and his most important work. "He had taken much care in its preparation, it was on good paper, he had good printers, fine woodcuts, and although more than half of it had already been published in earlier works it contained his care of gunshot wounds, which is still of more than passing importance. The book was subjected to much ridicule by the Faculty of Medicine as they wished to suppress its publication. Under a law written in 1533 they had the right to review and censor any book written on a medical subject. Gourmelin, Dean of the Faculty tried his best to suppress the book, but he was not successful because Paré was a favorite of the Royal House. Paré wrote a fifteen page pamphlet in defense of the material in his book in such a forthright, honest manner that he apparently won a victory. At least he was not defeated since the book was published in its entirety and sold out in a very short time ... He defended himself by saying he was writing in his native language as Galen and Hippocrates had in theirs; that he had given credit to the ancients for their teachings; and credit to his contemporaries who had contributed approved treatments for the good of the patient; that he had always worked for the good of his country and for the young surgeon; and that some of the mysteries of surgery were explained so that the patient would be treated on a sounder basis" (H. N. Sievers, Ambroise Pare: contributor to modern surgery. MD Theses. Paper 127, 1969, pp. 27-28). Very Good.

      Basilea, Petri Pernae 1575 - Fol. (35,2 x 22,5 cm.) 4 h. inc. port. arquitectónica en madera, 391 págs., 8 h. sin num., la última blanca. Con 127 retratos en madera, todos ellos con orlas xilográficas. Encuadernación del siglo XX en plena piel, decoración estilo renacentista, ruedas gofradas y hierros dorados en ambos planos, lomo liso, cuajado de adornos dorados, cantos y contacantos gofrados, con estuche de tela [S. Ortego] La edición más apreciada de esta obra clásica por ser la primera en incluir los retratos grabados por Tobias Stimmer, ya que aunque se imprimió originalmente en 1551 los textos biográficos no incluían los retratos. Los grabados se basan en la colección pictórica de retratos que Paulo Jovio reunió en su ciudad natal de Como; aunque la colección en gran parte no sobrevivió a la muerte de Jovio, Cosimo I de Médici reunió copias de los mismos y hoy día se conservan el la galería de los Uffizi en Florencia.

Legatura posteriore in mezza pergamena con ricchi fregi e titoli oro su tassello rosso. Rara ristampa, dopo la prima del 1540, di questo celebre volgarizzamento a cura di Iacopo Nardi (1473-1563) della monumentale storia romana di Tito Livio, di cui ci sono pervenute solo alcune parti, ovvero la prima decade, la terza, la quarta e meta della quinta.Dedica a Paolo Sergio Pola all'inizio dell'opera. Secondo il Gamba questa è la stampa più compiuta delle deche di Tito Livio, che contiene il supplemento della seconda Deca (da pag. 160 a pag. 208) fatta da Francesco Turchi e mancante in Tito Livio. Manca l'ultima carta bianca. Alcuni restauri marginali alle prime carte, qualche foro di tarlo che non intacca il testo, sporadiche bruniture nel complesso fresco esemplare, carta forte ed ampi margini. Una gora al margine inferiore dell'ultima parte del volume. Edizione non comune. Gamba 1480. Jacopo. NARDI,– Nacque a Firenze, il 20 luglio 1476, in una famiglia i cui membri in passato avevano ricoperto non di rado cariche pubbliche. Non si sa molto dei suoi primi 25 anni di vita e tutto quello che si può dire relativamente alla sua educazione, forse maturata nell’ambito dello Studio fiorentino, è che dovette essere improntata a una forte religiosità e caratterizzata da una cultura umanistica. Il pensiero successivo di Nardi testimonia la sua adesione alla predicazione e alla dottrina savonaroliane, tuttavia, a eccezione di qualche raro riferimento autobiografico, non siamo in grado di documentare la sua partecipazione attiva alle vicende legate al frate domenicano, che si conclusero con il rogo del 1498. Del breve periodo repubblicano iniziato nel 1527 con l’espulsione dei Medici da Firenze e durato fino al 1530, quando, con l’ausilio delle armi imperiali, papa Clemente VII de’ Medici riprese il controllo della città a beneficio della propria famiglia, Nardi fu uno dei protagonisti, ricoprendo l’incarico di cancelliere delle Tratte. A seguito della restaurazione medicea, contro l’inevitabile ritorsione a nulla valsero le parole di raccomandazione spese in suo favore dall’amico Girolamo Benivieni: il 2 dicembre 1530 fu condannato a un esilio triennale a Petigliolo, a poche miglia da Firenze, in una residenza di sua proprietà. Nel novembre 1533, al termine del bando, la pena fu inasprita e gli venne imposto un trasferimento a Livorno che mirava, per lui come per molti altri, a indebolire il legame con Firenze e con i suoi cittadini. La definitiva introduzione di un principato ereditario, con cui culminò la serie di riforme introdotte dai Medici tolsero a Nardi le speranze di rientrare in patria. Prese dunque una decisione che avrebbe segnato per sempre la sua vita: nel dicembre 1533 ruppe il confino e si trasferì a Venezia, all’epoca culla degli esuli fiorentini antimedicei. L’inevitabile conseguenza di quella scelta non tardò ad arrivare: nel luglio 1534 fu dichiarato ribelle e fu decretata la confisca dei suoi beni. Molto ben accolto a Venezia, in breve tempo divenne uno dei protagonisti del folto gruppo dei fuoriusciti repubblicani fiorentini. La situazione economica in cui versava non era florida così si dedicò a lavori di traduzione dal latino al volgare che gli consentirono di guadagnare qualcosa . Al contempo fu anche tra i principali protagonisti – a livello sia politico sia letterario – delle molte trame che miravano alla riconquista di Firenze e che ripresero vigore dopo la scomparsa dell’‘odiato’ papa Clemente VII e la successiva elezione di Paolo III Farnese. Nel gennaio 1537 l’improvviso assassinio del duca Alessandro per mano di Lorenzino de’ Medici aprì nuovi spiragli per la causa repubblicana e lo stesso Nardi si fece coinvolgere nel gaudio generalizzato scaturito dalla scomparsa del ‘tiranno’. In conseguenza di quell’inaspettato accadimento, [Attributes: Soft Cover]
