        Tractatus de Mercatura, Seu Mercatore, Omnia Quae ad Hoc Genus

      1575. Early Printing of Stracca's Landmark Commercial Law Treatise that Includes an Equally Important Treatise on Insurance Stracca (Straccha), Benvenuto [1509-1578]. [Santerna, Pedro de]. Tractatus de Mercatura, Seu Mercatore, Omnia Quae ad Hoc Genus Pertinent, Susissime Complectens. Huc Accessit Propter Tractatus de Sponsionibus & Affecu Rationibus Mercatorum. Venice: Apud Michaelem Bonellum, 1575 (colophon dated 1576). [lxxx], 375, [2] pp. Octavo (6" x 4"). Later three-quarter vellum over marbled boards, lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, speckled edges. Some rubbing to extremities with mild wear to board edges, corners and spine ends bumped, front hinge cracked, rear hinge starting. Light toning to text, negligible dampstaining and foxing in places. Early struck-through signature to title page, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine, small inkstamps to title page and its verso. A solid copy of a scarce title. * Third edition, "newly revised," and the last authorial edition. An eminent jurist from a prominent business family, Stracca was the first to treat commercial law as a distinct field. Perhaps as a result of his background, his approach blended jurisprudence and the practical necessities of commercial life. First published in Venice in 1553 by Aldus Minutius, De Mercatura is his principal work. This pathbreaking treatise went through several editions throughout Europe, the final appearing in 1669. Notable for its blend of synthesis and original thought, it is a systematic exposition on commercial law with an emphasis on maritime and bankruptcy law. It also has sections on usury, the restriction of trade and the value of free navigation. This edition also contains the Tractatus de Sponsibus et Assecurationibus Mercatorum, which begins on fol. 322, is an important treatise on insurance first published in 1554. According to the Kress catalogue, this is "the first modern treatise" on the subject. Pedro de Santerna was a Portuguese jurist who represented his nation's commercial interests in Florence, Livorno and Pisa. KVK locates 8 copies of this edition. OCLC locates 7 copies of this edition and 11 copies of all editions in North America. This edition not in Adams or the British Museum Catalogue. Censimento Nazionale delle Edizioni Italia

        L'Anno Santo MDLXXV del Pontificato di N.S. Papa Gregorio XIII. [with] Le sette chiese; Le cose maravigliose della citta` di Roma; La guida Roma [and] L'antichità di Roma di m. Andrea Palladio

      Francesco Rampazetto, Venice, 1575. First Edition. Hardcover (Vellum). Very Good Condition. A compilation of mostly previously published material representing a culmination of 16th century guides to Rome. In original vellum, worn, with tears to both hinges, but binding sound. Typed and signed presentation laid onto the front endpaper. Scattered foxing, mostly minor, a few small worm trails, first title worn and browned, but largely clean and complete. Printer and date are from the second title page (for Le sette chiese). Many of the sections (there are 19 sections in total) with separate title pages, but the numbering is continuous except for the final work "Predica intorno alle indulgenze del R.P. Christoforo Brenzone". Though guides to the holy city had been around since the middle ages, the 16th century showed a new burst of interest both in the traditional themes of churches and indulgences, but also in the antiquities of the city (as in Palladio here and the adaptation of Thomas Shakerley's La guida Romana here appended to Le cose maravigliose). (12), 404, 22 leaves. Most of the individual works are quite scarce, this compilation is very rare with no representation in the auction records and only 3 copies in Worldcat. Not in Adams. Size: duodecimo (12mo). Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilo. Category: Travel & Places; Antiquarian & Rare. Inventory No: 044146. .

        Americae Sive Novi Orbis, Nova Descriptio.

      Abraham Ortelius 1575 - Outstanding early map of the Western Hemisphere dotted with ships and sea monsters. This was the first map of the Americas to appear in a modern atlas. At the time it was issued, the coastal areas of the New World had been fairly well explored, and Europeans were just beginning settlement and colonization. It is notable for depicting Spanish and Portuguese colonies in high detail, for these powers were notoriously protective of their geographical surveys. This is the third state of the first plate engraved for Ortelius's landmark map of the New World. It is distinguished from the second plate by the unusual bulge in the western coast of South America. This map is on the cover of Philip D. Burden's thorough reference book, "The Mapping of North America", see map number 39. Latin text on verso. Repairs to several tears lower left, abrasions, repaired hole 45 degrees S in the Atlantic Ocean, early repairs to upper left margin, but an overall pleasing copy of a famous map. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 14 3/8" x 20".

        Oxonium, nobile Angliae oppidum/Vindesorium celeberrimum Angliae castrum

      Cologne, 1575. Copper engraving, 36.5 x 49 cms, original hand-colour, French text on verso; views of Oxford and Windsor, both derived from works by Joris Hoefnagel made during his travels in England c. 1569-71. Scholars stand in the foreground of the Oxford scene, and a hunt is in progress before the walls of the royal castle at Winsdor. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum was one of the most significant cartographic works of the late sixteenth-century, printed over 45 year period between 1572 and 1617. It was the first systematic city atlas (containing the first accurate surveys of many towns) and was inspired in part by the scope of the Theatrum Orbis Terarrum. Braun wrote the text and Ortelius - who travelled with the artist Joris Hoefnagel - supplied much of the material, which was then engraved by Novellus and Hogenburg. There were a number of editions, mostly with Latin text, but it is extremely difficult (and, according to Koeman ‘of secondary importance’) to differentiate between them, as the state of the plates and their number and order does not vary.

Alexander Hales (c.1185—1245) (also Halensis, Alensis, Halesius, Alesius, or as Doctor Irrefragabilis and Theologorum Monarcha) was an English-born Franciscan theologian. Alexander was fascinated by the Pseudo-Dionysian hierarchy of angels and how their nature could be understood in light of Aristotelian metaphysics. Alexander developed the doctrines of thesaurus supererogationis perfectorum (treasury of supererogatory merits) and the character indelibilis (sacramental character) of baptism, confirmation, and ordination. He also posed an important question about the cause of the Incarnation: would Christ have been incarnated if humanity had never sinned? The question eventually became the focal point for the philosophical theory of possible worlds and a theological distinction between God's absolute power (potentia absoluta) and His ordained power (potentia ordinata). John Gerson tells us "The doctrine of Alexander is of a wealth surpassing all expression. It is said that someone asked St. Thomas what was the best manner of studying theology; he replied that it was by attaching oneself to a Master. And to which Doctor? he was asked again. To Alexander of Hales, the Angelic Doctor replied." Gerson, Opera omnia. Epistola Lugdunum missa cuidam fratri Minori, vol. 1, p. 554. Pusey House is a center of Anglo-Catholic worship and Study at the University of Oxford, named after the prominent Tractarian Edward Bouverie Pusey. The Oxford (or Tractarian) Movement was a movement of High Church Anglicans, eventually developing into Anglo-Catholicism. The movement, the members of which were often associated with the University of Oxford, argued for the recovery of traditional aspects of the Christian faith, subsequently lost, and their inclusion into Anglican liturgy and theology and conceived of the Anglican Church as one of three branches of the Catholic Church. A very nice copy of this scarce treatise with a unique provenance.&

        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. <br/><br/>& & &#147;Francesco Maurolico is generally recognized to have been one of the foremost mathematicians of the sixteenth century&#148; (Rosen); Cajori has called him &#145;the greatest geometer of the sixteenth century&#146;. 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: <i>& De sphaera liber unus </i>(in which he criticized Copernicus);<i> Computus Ecclesiasticus in summam collectus; Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum; Tractatus de lineis horariis; Euclidis propositiones elementorum; Musicae traditione; De lineis horariis; and Arithmeticorum. </i><br/><br/>& &#147;The greatest number of Maurolico&#146;s mathematical writings are gathered in the <i>Opuscula mathematica</i>; indeed, the second volume of that work, <i>Arithmeticorum libri duo</i>, 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&#146;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... <br/><br/>& &#147;Among the topics related to mathematics in the Opuscula are chronology (the treatise &#145;Computus ecclesiasticus&#146;) and gnomonics (in two treatises, both entitled &#145;De lineis horariis,&#146; one of which also discusses conics). The work also contains writing on Euclid&#146;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&#148; (DSB IX, 191). In Tractatus instrumentorum astronomicorum, Maurolico described the principal astronomical instruments and discussed their theory, use, and history&#151;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). <br/><br/>& 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 &#145;Cela est aisé par Maurolic&#146;. It had in fact been used earlier by Euclid, Levi ben Gerson and others, but without clearly stating the principle involved. The term &#145;induction&#146; was first used in this context by John Wallis in 1655. <br/><br/>& 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&#146;s death. Some bibliographies mention editions of 1574, 1580 and 1585, but in &#145;The Editions of Maurolico&#146;s mathematical works&#146; (Scripta Mathematica 24 (1959) 59-76), Edward Rosen has shown that there was only one edition of the Opuscula and its &#145;companion piece&#146; the Arithmeticorum (though one or two of the works were reprinted separately later). See also Smith&#146;s Rara Arithmetica, p.349-50. <br/><br/>& Maurolico&#146;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. <br/><br/> & 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: &#147;Maurolycus, the First Discover of the Principle of Mathematical Induction,&#148; Bulletin of the American Mathematial Society, 16 (1909&#150;1910) 70&#150;73.& Two volumes bound as one (as issued). 4to: 214 x 160 mm. Pp. [20], 285; [1: blank], [8], 175, [1], [18]. Large printer&#146;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.

      18 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern boards (title a little spotted). Frankfurt am Main: 1575. The autumn 1575 catalogue of the Frankfurt Book Fair. The catalogues of the Frankfurt Book Fair, issued twice a year by Georg Willer starting in the autumn of 1564, created a revolution for the book trade. "Before that date printers visiting the fair must have had to write out by hand countless lists of new books to send to their customers: thereafter they could send copies of the fair catalogue to the local booksellers all over Europe, who in turn passed them on to their customers...The fair catalogue was a co-operative effort: the printers coming to the fair sent in advance title-pages of the books they were bringing, so that Willer could arrange them in subject order before printing his catalogue."-Pollard & Ehrman, p. 77. These "catalogues represent the first international bibliographies of a periodic character, attempting to list every six months all new publications issued in Europe, and they can be considered the prototype of today&#39;s Books in Print. The books are arranged by subject; for the first time, place, publisher, and date are always mentioned."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 24-(according to Breslauer and Folter, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the autumn 1568 issue at Harvard). All Willer catalogues are extremely rare. According to OCLC, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the 1574 issue (but see above). It is interesting to note that Dr. Breslauer did not have any 16th-century issues. The earliest copy in the Broxbourne Library is spring 1577. Fine and fresh copy. No copy in OCLC. From the library of Thore Virgin (1886-1957). .

        De gli elementi d&#39;Euclide libri quindici. Con gli scholii antichi tradotti prima in lingua latina da M. Federico Commandino da Urbino, & con commentarij illustrati et hora d&#39;ordine dell&#39;istesso trasportati nella nostra vulgare, e da lui riveduti.

      Urbino: Domenico Frisolino, 1575. Hard cover. Very Good/The first book printed in Urbino in the 16th century, and only the fourth overall. Urbino&#39;s presses lagged behind those of other Italian cities, due in part to Duke Federico&#39;s predilection for manuscripts. It seems Federico Commandino, the foremost mathematician of the generation before Galileo, had a press set up in his house. He hired in a printer, Domenico Frisolino, and there he published his translation into Italian of Euclid, based on his own Latin translation of 1572. Commandino died just as the sheets were coming off the press. His brother-in-law hastily attached a dedicatory letter (to Francesco Maria II della Rovere) explaining that the Commandino wanted the text to be available to "all who are served by mathematics," that is, even those who do not understand classical languages. Euclid&#39;s text is glossed by Commandino&#39;s running commentary, and illustrated with figures. . Folio; [16], 278 pages. Title page and all text pages ruled in typographic border. Typographic ornament on title page, 18 historiated initials (some duplicates) showing putti with geometer&#39;s instruments against a background of Italian hill towns. Numerous geometric figures in text. Bound in c19 (?) full mint green sheep, with red leather title label lettered and tooled in gilt. Edges stained indigo. Binding somewhat scuffed, with upper joint cracked; spine darkened and scuffed. Early ownership inscription on title page, later bookplate on front pastedown. Few marginal notes in contemporary hand. Very light occasional foxing present. References: Moranti, #4 ("un vero capolavoro tipografico" p.14); Gamba 1386 ("Nobile edizione").

        De Privilegiis Rusticorum: Lib III O Fortunatos Nimium, Sua Si

      1575. Choppin, Rene [1537-1606]. De Privilegiis Rusticorum: Lib. III. O Fortunatos Nimium, Sua Si Bona Norint, Agricolas, Gnauosque Senes, Extrema per Illos Iustitia Excedens Terris Vestigia Fecit. Paris: Apud Nicolaum Chesneau, 1575 [colophon: 29 November 1574]. [xvi] 248, [24] pp. Quarto (9" x 6-1/2"). Contemporary limp vellum, early calligraphic title to spine, ties lacking. Negligible light shelfwear, text block partially detached from binding. Woodcut printer device to title page, woodcut decorated initials. Some toning, light dampspotting and early annotations to a few leaves. * First edition. Choppin (or Chopin) was a French jurist and an avocat of the Parlement of Paris. Like Jean Bacquet and Jean Bodin, Choppin drew on Roman law and feudal principles to advocate a centralized state under royal rule. De Privilegiis Rusticorum addresses legal privileges enjoyed by rural people in Roman and civil law. A well-written and remarkably comprehensive work, it went through seven subsequent editions in Latin. Its final edition, translated into French, was published in 1634. This was a rarely explored topic, and Choppin&#39;s treatise is the only early example we have encountered. According to the Biographie Universelle, "it deserves notice for the singularity of its subject, for its profound research, and the decisions it contains" (8:499). All editions are scarce today and rare in North American law libraries. OCLC locates three copies of the 1575 edition (at Columbia, George Washington University and Harvard).

        La Carte d'Europe

      Carta tratta dalla celebre 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).

Impresa tipografiche ai frontespizi incise su legno con Mercurio con che impugna il caduceo e abbraccia Minerva con elmo piumato, scudo e due dardi nella mano sinistra; le due divinità tengono i piedi incrociantisi su un dado e un libro chiuso). Capilettera ornati incisi su legno. Svariate dedicatorie ai vari volumi e indici dei corrispondenti in principion di ciascun volume. Alcune annotazioni di antica mano. Sparsi aloni ed arrossature, ma bell'esemplare nell'insieme. Assieme di due rare edizioni veneziane di Gualtiero Scoto delle lettere bembiane, con i primi due volumi appartenenti all'impressione del 1575 e i restanti due all'antecedente del 1552 (di cui quella del '75 costituisce una nuova emissione). Il primo volume contiene le lettere "A sommi Pontefici, a Cardinali et ad altri Signori et persone Ecclesiastice, scritte. Con la giunta della Vitta del Bembo"; i restanti tre contengono le epistole "a suoi congiunti et amici, et altri gentili huomini venitiani". Al primo vol., una vita del Bembo scritta da Francesco Sansovino. "Pregiata raccolta.. ai quali tutti vuolsi che abbia prestato sua assistenza Carlo Gualterazzi da Fano", annota il Gamba, che ricorda, citando Apostolo Zeno, come i figli di Aldo Manuzio si valessero dei caratteri dello Scoto, che era stato anche proto nella loro stamperia e, ancora, come lo stesso Renouard (Annales des Aldes) dubitasse, infondatamente, "che esistessero i quattro volumi dell'anno 1552" (tale dubbio è un'ulteriore conferma della rarità dell'edizione). "Lo Scoto.. nel medesimo anno 1575 ristampò anche il Volume Terzo della sua edizione 1552.. Il Volume Quarto credo non siasi mai ristampato, trovandosi sempre colla data del 1552" (Gamba). Le epistole indirizzate dal letterato veneziano a pontefici, cardinali ed ecclesiastici d'alto bordo raccolte nei primi due volumi vennero composte quando il Bembo svolgeva l'incarico di segretario personale di papa Leone X. Il Bembo mantenne l'ufficio di segretario fino al 1521, anno della morte del pontefice, acquistandosi il favore sia della Corte che del papa, dal quale fu adoperato non solo come segretario (vergò anche la maggior parte delle bolle pontificie), ma anche come Consigliere e inviato in missioni diplomatiche.Le epistole bembiane costituiscono un modello insuperato dell'epistolografia rinascimentale per nitore ed eleganza di stile e, insieme, una fonte di grande valore per la ricostruzione della storia ecclesiastica e politico-diplomatica del periodo.
