GENTILLET, Innocent (1535-1595)
THE FIRST "ANTI-MACHIAVEL" 8vo. (16), 639 (i.e. 637), (19) pp. With a woodcut device on the title and on the last leaf. 18th century calf, richly gilt spine with gilt lettering on red morocco label, red edges, marbled end-leaves, old entry of ownership on the title page, a few old marginal annotations, some very light damp-stains, a very fine copy.FIRST EDITION of the most significant French contribution to political theory before Bodin's République, dedicated to the Duke of Alençon, who joined the Huguenots in September 1575. If Gen-tillet is today a more or less forgotten man, if his main work lies in oblivion, superseded by the eighteenth century Anti-Machiavel of that arch Machiavellian, Frederick of Prussia, it is nonetheless true that Gentillet in his own time and into the next century was one of the most influential personalities in the anti-Machiavellian polemic. This is testified by the fact that his Discours was reprinted repeatedly until the middle of the seventeenth century (cf. S. Anglo, Machiavelli: The First Century Studies in Enthusiasm, Hostility, and Irrelevance, Oxford, 2005, pp. 271-324)."A convincing re-assessment of the historical relevance of the book cannot be achieved without replacing it in the context of the political and religious situation in France at the time when it was written, and of the attitude, concerns, and aspirations of the church of Geneva, that authorized its printing and in all probability greatly contributed to its wide circulation... To realize that the most specific and profound reason for his anti-Machiavellism is in direct rel … [Click Below for Full Description]

ASIEN. Ortelius:
Antwerpen, 1575. Altkolor. Kupferstich, 49 x 38 cm. Sehr gut erhalten, breitrandig. * vdBroecke 7; Tibbets, Arabia in Early Maps 34+41; Walter, Japan 11c; Cortazzi, Isles of Gold p.20. Zweiter Plattenzustand der Asien-Karte (von 1570), der seit 1575 Verwendung fand (vgl. Broecke 6). Die Karte zeigt den gesamten asiatischen Kontinent, freilich mit größeren Fehldarstellungen, je weiter östlich man kommt: mit wenig gegliederten Philippinen, Korea ist gar nicht dargestellt, und Japan hat eine magere Amoeben-Gestalt. Außerordentlich dekoratives und farbfrisches Blatt. The standard map of Asia for more than forty years (S.). An attractive and nicely coloured map of the Asian continent. The southern regions being fairly accurately defined, but inacurracies arise the farther east one goes, with the Philippines poorly defined, Korea nonexistant, and Japan looking rather amoebia-like. Cartographical sources: reports of Portuguese explorers, Ortelius' own Wall map of Asia (1567), based on work by Gastaldi and Albufeda (cf. Meurer, Fontes Cartographici Orteliani p. 21).

Paolo Meietti; Antonio Maietti, 1575. Small 4to. [8], 499, [1], [32] pp. Printer's woodcut device on title, woodcut initial letters, head-pieces, Errata [A4v]. Occasional early marginalia. Original full vellum, manuscript spine title. Ownership signature on title of Johannis Bat. ---- and another [crossed out]. RARE. First edition of Oddi's rare commentary on book I, fen I of Avicenna's Canon, with the Latin versions of Andrea Alpago and Jacob Mantino. Before practicing Medicine in Venice, Oddo degli Oddi (Padova 1478 - ivi 1558) taught classics (Greek and Latin) at the University of Padua. Eventually he went back to Padua, where he taught Medicine. He was a committed supporter of Galen's doctrines, whence we learn that he was called "the soul of Galen." / Lynn Thorndike writes, "Like most of Oddus' medical works, his four books on the pest and all pestiferous diseases were published posthumously, being printed at Venice by his son in 1570." - History of Magic and Experimental Science, vol. VI, p. 210. / As Siraisi explains, "although in the body of his work much of the time he treated Avicenna with nominal respect, this was apt to be achieved through a procedure of deducing Avicenna's 'real' opinion by consulting Galen. In addition, Oddo Oddi had a long-standing interest in the problem of securing a better Latin text of the Canon (he was on the academic committee that approved Alpago's work and he encouraged Graziolo many years later); he based his exposition on Alpago's text, which he claimed to be in general use, and rather frequently compared the latter's renderings wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEVET, Andre
[Paris,: L'Huillier, 1575. DescriptionDouble-page and folding woodcut map, two closed tears crossing the image extending from the left-hand margin, lower left-hand margin renewed. NotesFrom the first edition, of the fourth volume of Thevets Cosmographie universelle, 1575, here in a state not recorded by Burden, corresponding to his first state, but without the title above the neatline, even though there is a wide and untrimmed top margin. Although the geography of the map is mainly derived from that of Ortelius, Thevet, in his accompanying text, claims to have based his map of America on his own first-hand observations. Thevet did in fact visit America, returning from Brazil in 1555, and the map contains some interesting information not found in other maps of the period. Thevet has added placenames along the northeastern seaboard of North America. The maps depiction of southwest south America is a sort of compromise between maps showing the bulge in Chile, first depicted by Mercator in 1569, and subsequent maps that have corrected it, first by Ortelius in 1570. The region in Brazil where Frnce dabbled in trade and prostelytizing is appropriately called France Antartique, as dubbed by Villegagnon, who considered himself to be King of America. Here Thevet, long anticipating most mapmakers, introduces the name r. Janairo. Directly inland, Thevets missionary role in the New World is reflected in his knowledge of various Indian peoples. Most prominent is Toupinambaux, the Tupinamba Indians known to us mainly through the adventures of the German adventurer Hans Staden, whom they … [Click Below for Full Description]

THEVET (André)
(À Paris, chez Pierre L'Huilier, 1575), , 1 carte gravée sur bois de 453 x 353 mm (au cadre), imprimée sur feuille découpée au format 460 x 360 mm, Premier état de cette célèbre carte, l'une des premières représentant les Amériques, extraite de la Cosmographie universelle d'André Thevet (l'Huilier, 1575), où elle se trouvait placée dans le second volume, avant le feuillet 903. Comme sur de nombreux exemplaires connus, le titre "Le Nouveau Monde descouvert..." a été rogné. Il y a eu en tout trois états de cette carte : les deux premiers ont paru successivement en 1575, pour accompagner la Cosmographie universelle, dont l'édition avait été partagée entre l'Huilier (premier tirage) et Guillaume Chaudière (second) ; et en 1581, en tant que tirage séparé, chez le même Chaudière (cet état passe pour être le plus rare). Aucun changement de cartographie n'a eu lieu entre eux : seules quelques modifications typographiques viennent les différencier. Le nôtre correspond bien au premier tirage tel qu'il est décrit par Burden et Karrow : le cartouche en bas à droite commence par "And. Thevet, Cosmographe du roy. Ie sçay bien, Ami lecteur...", tandis que, dans les deux tirages suivants, "And. Thevet" deviendra "André Thevet". En pied de ce cartouche apparaît un petit fleuron typographique qui est absent des tirages de Chaudière. Cette carte dépend largement du modèle de Mercator de 1569, ce qui est particulièrement visible dans le renflement de la côte nord ouest de l'Amérique du Nord.

TT2 bound after fol. VV2. Italic and roman type. Ten-line animated initials at the beginning of each Book. Contemporary gilt-tooled limp vellum. Covers within gilt border, fleuron at the centre. Smooth spine, decorated with gilt tools, inked title. Gilt edges. Minor loss to the spine. A very fine copy. A few corrections in an early hand.Provenance: 'Di Casa Doni' (early ownership inscription on the front pastedown; on the title-page 'Casa Donj comprato dal [?]). An extraordinary copy printed on blue paper of the first edition of the Italian translation of Euclids' Elements. The translator and commentator is the humanist and mathematician from Urbino Federico Commandino (1509-1575). Luxury copies of sixteenth-century scientific books are unusual and were surely intended for presentation. In 1565 Commandino was visited by English philosopher, mathematician, and astrologer John Dee (1527-1608; see no. 91), who gave him a manuscript translation into Latin of an Arabic work related to Euclid's De divisionibus. Commandino published this Latin version – De superficierum divisionibus liber Machometo Bagdedino ascriptus – in Pesaro in 1570, adding a short treatise of his own to condense and generalize the discussion of this work. Two years later, at the request of Francesco Maria II della Rovere, Duke of Urbino, Commandino translated Euclid's Elements into Latin and published it along w … [Click Below for Full Description]

AETHICI [Aethicus] (ed. Josias Simmler)
Basel: N.P. [Thomas Guarin], 1575. 16mo., early calf, engraved title, [32] 353pp. [135] decorated initials. Binding chiefly worn at spine (shelf label at top compartment, remains of title label below), front board and free endpaper holding on cords, staining and creasing through text block top corner, gradually decreasing in effect, text still accessible throughout; minimal foxing, endpapers stained around margins. Bookplate of John Taylor (1704-66), Shropshire philologist, classicist and bibliophile. "The Cosmographia Aethici is a fascinating piece of literary forgery from the earlier half of the eight century (probably not long after 727). Essentially, the Cosmography is a prosimetrum text of indefinable genre by an unknown author, with some ties to Southern English monastic centres and Irish the learned tradition but possibly writing in Northern Italy or Merovingian Francia - a writer pretending to be Saint Jerome producing an expurgated breviarium of a text originally written by a pagan philosopher Aethicus several centuries prior to Jeromes time, indeed before Christ. This Aethicus is said to be a Scythian from (H)Istria , but whether this means the city of Histria in Scythia Minor, by the Black Sea, or the Istrian peninsula of the Adriatic, seems to fluctuate within the text [...] Although the author is often called Pseudo-Jerome, I think it is better to speak about the Cosmographer, so we can distinguish between the voices of Jerome and Aethicus in the text, both of whom are creations of the Cosmographer."

HERO ALEXANDRINUS.
Urbino, s.n. (D. Frisolini), 1575. In - 4°; 2 cc., 80 cc. (mal numerate 70) con 87 incisioni xilografiche nel testo; legatura settecentesca in mezza pergamena, tassello con titolo in oro al dorso. Qualche macchiolina e brunitura. Prima edizione assoluta degli Spiritali (o Pneumatica), opera maggiore di Erone di Alessandria. La versione latina è di Federico Commandino, l'edizione del testo greco vedrà la luce solo nel 1693. Il testo è ampiamente illustrato da interessanti xilografie che raffigurano macchine, meccanismi, fontane, giochi ed esperimenti azionati dalla pressione dell'acqua, del vapore e del vento. Erone, matematico e inventore di Alessandria vissuto con tutta probabilità nel I sec. d.C. e le cui opere sono pervenute tramite la mediazione araba, propose meccanismi e invenzioni ammirate da tutti gli ingegneri del Rinascimento. Tra le macchine descritte e illustrate, particolarmente curiose sono la fontana detta di Erone, che zampilla grazie alla pressione dell'acqua, o la eolipila (o sfera di Eolo), che rappresenta il primo tentativo di trasformare il vapore in energia meccanica (si tratta della prima turbina a vapore della storia) o ancora un dispositivo (basato sulla dilatazione dell'aria) per far aprire le porte del tempio all'accensione del fuoco sull'altare.

Vélin, décoration au centre des plats dans le style Renaissance de l'époque, composée d'arabesques et de filets dorés estampés, filet doré d'encadrement, dos lisse à faux nerfs dorés, petit fer en caissons, pièce de titre en maroquin brun, tranches dorées, exemplaire réglé, mouillure dans le coin inférieur d'un cahier (reliure de l'époque). Édition originale. De Privilegiis rusticorum aborde les privilèges légaux dont jouissaient les populations rurales dans le droit romain et civile. Comme Jean Bacquet et Jean Bodin, Choppin s'est servi du droit romain et des principes féodaux pour défendre un état centralisé dominé par le pouvoir royal. Les privilèges ruraux furent un sujet rarement exploré. Le traité de Choppin fit référence et fut réédité de nombreuses fois. Un travail bien écrit et remarquablement complet. René Choppin (Le Bailleul, 1537-Paris, 1606) fut un des plus célèbres jurisconsultes de son siècle. Il plaida longtemps au Barreau du Parlement de Paris, puis il vieillit dans son cabinet où il était consulté comme un des plus illustres oracles du droit. Il avait beaucoup d'esprit, d'érudition et une prodigieuse mémoire. Il se passionna pour l'antiquité et l'usage. Son second volume sur la coutume d'Anjou lui attira les honneurs de la ville d'Angers. Il fut anobli en 1578 par Henri III pour son De Domanio et son De Privilegiis rusticorum est ?rempli de belles recherches et de décisions très notables? (Moreri).

HERO (HERON) OF ALEXANDRIA. - [THE FOUNDATION OF HYDRAULICS]
Urbini, (D. Frisolini), 1575. Small 4to. Fine recent full vellum in old style with written title on back. Titlepage + 80 leaves (title unnumb. + F 1-80 with 4 leaves misnumb., e.g. F70 instead of 80). The dedicationleaf (unnumb.) after title missing. Text complete, fine and clean with broad margins. One large initial in woodcut and 89 large textillustrations in woodcut. First edition of Heron's main work, being his first publication. The work stimulated and contributed substantially to the interest in pneumatics that arose suddenly in the late 16th century and led to the work of Toricelli and Boyle. The "Pneumatics" was not published in Greek until 1693. It is one of the major sources to our knowledge of the techniques and mechanics of Antiquity, and the many hydraulic and mechanical inventions by Hero are here depicted for the first time in print. The work includes studies of pneumatics and mechanics and include 89 illustrations of different inventions, such as siphons, fountains, engines, an account of a small stationary steam-engine (which is of the form now known as Avery's patent, the double-force pump etc., which "by the union of (compressed) air, earth, fire, and water, and the concurrence of.elementary principles., supply the most pressing wants of the human life, (or) produce amazement and alarm." The book describes many gadgets and magical tricks and includes the first suggestion of a steam engine (see f. 52). - Sarton, Introduction.Vol. I pp. 208 ff. - Adams H:369 - Poggendorff I: 1084.

Caesar, [Caius Julius], and Andrea Palladio
Venice: Apresso Pietro de Franceschi, 1575. [58, including blank], 407,[1]pp. Small quarto. Full vellum, spine gilt extra, gilt labels. Two folding maps, forty double- page engraved plates. Some foxing and occasional marginal thumbing and soiling, some spotting to G1-2, trivial worm nibble in gutter of a number of the plates, a few old ink marginal annotations, still a very good copy. First Palladio edition of Caesar's COMMENTARIES, based on the translation by Francesco Baldelli (first published in 1554). Andrea Palladio (1508 - 1580) is most widely known for his highly influential designs and treatises on architecture. In his preface to this late, somewhat out-of- genre work, Palladio indicates that this illustrated edition of the Commentaries "originated in a project for his two sons, Leonida and Orazio. The sons died in 1572, and Palladio, finding the sketches they had made, decided to publish them with his own additions..." - Mortimer. Palladio engraved the fine plates, which depict overhead views of encampments and land and sea battles, fortified cities, river crossings, and bridge and wall construction. "Édition rechercheé à cause des gravures dont elle est ornée" - Brunet. The work was reprinted several times in the following decades. MORTIMER ITALIAN 16TH CENTURY BOOKS, 97. BRUNET I:1461.

When we moved back to the States; he was stationed in Omaha, Nebraska in 1972. In 1974, he took the book to an appraiser and had the book reviewed again and the appraiser gave him the same amount that the shop keeper gave to him then.

Handsome floral gold tooling and bright lettering along the spine. With numerous fine engravings throughout (the one on p. 14 is signed 1A). All edges are gilded.

Andre THEVET (Angoulême 1516 ca. - Parigi 1592)
Suite completa delle carte raffiguranti i 4 continenti. Xilografie, 1575, finemente colorate a mano in epoca, impresse su carta vergata coeva, complete della linea marginale, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Le carte sono tratte dalla prima edizione de La Cosmographie universelle d'Andre Thevet, cosmographe du roy : illustree de diverses figures des choses plus remarquables veues par l'auteur, & incogneues de noz anciens & modernes, curata da Pierre l'Huilier, che precede di uno o due anni la ristampa di Guillaume Chaudiere. Nato a Angoulême intorno al 1516, Thevet divenne frate francescano e intorno al 1550 compì la sua prima spedizione, quando accompagnò il cardinale Jean de Lorraine in Italia e nel bacino del Mediterraneo. Poco dopo, Thevet pubblicò la Cosmographie de Levant, un compendio circa fatti, persone, luoghi, flora e fauna della zona visitata. L'esperienza di Thevet come un viaggiatore attirò l'attenzione di Nicolas Durand, Cavaliere di Villegagnon, che si apprestava a fondare una colonia in quello che è oggi il Brasile. Durant chiese a Thevet di accompagnarlo nella spedizione come suo confessore. Durante il viaggio, Thevet si ammalò e fu costretto a tornare in Francia dopo aver trascorso sole dieci settimane in Brasile. Tuttavia, combinando le sue osservazioni con le informazioni acquisite da altri viaggiatori, Thevet realizzò il suo Singularitez de la France Antarctique, pubblicato a Parigi nel 1557, che gli valse il riconoscimento reale e la nomina a cosmografo della corte dei Valois. Si dedicò poi alla sua opera più ambiziosa, La Cosmographie universell … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vergleichsliteratur: M.C.Plomp, The Dutch Drawings in the eyler Museum. Bd. II: Artists born between 1575 and 1630. Haarlem/Ghent/Doornspijk, 1997, Nr. 183-1889. Hackaert ist vermutlich zwischen dem 26.07. und 24.08.1654 oder zwischen dem 26.07.1654 und 28.05.1655 in Italien gewesen. Darüber hinaus sind Ansichten von Martigny und bei Lausanne in alten Katalogen nachzuweisen. Hackaerts Lehrer sind nicht bekannt. Reisen in die Schweiz und nach Italien sind durch einen Klebeband belegt, der sich im Besitz des Kunsthauses Zürich befindet. Zeichnungen mit Schweizer Motiven befinden sich in dem berühmten Atlas von Joan Blaeu (Kartograph, 1596-1673) in der Nationalbibliothek in Wien. Hackaert zeichnete holländische und italienische Landschaften, Flußtäler mit bewaldeten Hängen. Entweder sind es einfache lavierte Federskizzen nach der Natur oder durchgeführte Landschaftskompositionen, die an seine selteneren Gemälde erinnern. Charakteristisch ist die umrahmende Zeichnung des Blattwerkes und eine kleine skizzenhafte Staffage. Auch ist das Sonnenlicht, das um Stamm und Laub spielt, besonders betont.

Vignerius, Nicolaus [Vignier, Nicolas]
Basileae (Basel): Thomas Guarinus, 1575. First Edition. Small 4to. [8], 185, [23] pp. Modern vellum, red and white mottled edges. Old shelf-mark (?) "4069" in ink on title. Light foxing throughout. Overall very good. "All Things Burgundian." This early and impressive Renaissance chronicle of Burgundy covers the years 408 to 1482 and presents key events in tabular form. That copies of this work were in the libraries of Isaac Newton (cf. John Harrison, No. H1687) and Horace Walpole (Strawberry Hill sale, 26 April 1842, Case E, group lot 8) attests to its significance. According to the author, the present work was composed with the aid of hitherto unpublished manuscripts; among these must have been the Chronica Regum Visigothorum or Leges Visigothorum: in the list of authors and "monumental works" consulted is the reference to the "Vuisigothorii (sic) Chronicon manuscriptum." "The only writer who dealt with the later history in a really critical spirit was Nicolas Vignier (1530-96), whose critical sense had been stimulated by the study and practice of medicine" (A.A. Tilley, French Humanism and Montaigne, in: The Cambridge Modern History, 1905, vol. III, pp. 63-64). A Calvanist by birth, Vignier first trained as a lawyer; fleeing persecutions he was exiled to Germany where he was retained as the personal physician to several German princes. After converting to Catholicism he returned to Paris where he served as a physician and court historian to Henry III of France. This is his first book, complete in itself, which later formed part of his monumental "Bibliotheque Historial … [Click Below for Full Description]

Federico Commandino, nato ad Urbino nel 1509, fu uno dei matematici più importanti che precedette la generazione di Galileo; a lui si devono numerose traduzioni, prima in Latino e poi in lingua volgare, degli scritti dei più importanti matematici greci, tra cui il Trattato dei corpi galleggianti di Archimede; ma fu proprio la traduzione degli Elementi di Euclide che gli valse la fama. Nel 1574 ebbe dal duca Francesco Maria II il permesso di impiantare una tipografia nella sua casa e ne diede la direzione a Domenico Frisolino, lì pubblicò la sua traduzione in italiano di Euclide, basata sulla sua precedente latina del 1572. Commandino morì proprio mentre i fogli uscivano dalla stampa, tant'è che la dedicatoria a Francesco Maria II della Rovere fu composta dal genero del Commandino Valerio Spacciuoli, il quale avvalorò l'intento umanistico e didattico dell'autore che prevedeva di rendere friubile il testo anche a coloro che "non intendevan … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ulloa, Alfonso de
Aldus, 1575. 8º (195x142mm). 344 + (8)ff. Printer's device on title page; woodcut decorative initials. Some slight usual foxing, minor worm holes affecting last 100 page. Contemporary brown calf. Good copy. In 1560, Ulloa published his first and most famous original work, the biography of Charles V, an attempt is made to place a hasty trip to Spain, either in the nuncio's entourage, Prospero Publicola, or called by the King himself, as he wanted to magnify he himself in the nuncupatoria letter of the 1564 edition of the spurious book third of the family Epistles of Guevara. These and other imprecise allusions to the services he rendered to the two branches of the Habsburgs must have been the idea, pointed out by Nicolás Antonio, that in that decade he could have acted as business agent of Felipe II, of Emperor Maximiliano II and of the Archduke Ferdinand of Austria. But the prosecution and condemnation that would end his life and the delays in mediating his case indicate that the role he played in the administration necessarily had to be temporary and subordinate, rather reduced to the task of mere interpreter or led to the most dangerous clandestine informant, despite the priceless propaganda work of the Catholic and imperial monarchy and, even more, the Spanish culture, whose canon of contemporary authors was responsible for translating or editing even from his imprisonment. According to the correspondence preserved, in 1563 Ulloa falsified the order to be able to print a book in the Hebrew language; discovered the crime at the beginning of 1568, he was sentenced to death … [Click Below for Full Description]
