[Mexia Pedro
London: John Day, 1576. VERY RARE ENGLISH PRINTING of Fortescue's translation, from a French version by Claude Gruget, of Pedro Mexia's "Silva de Varia Lecion." Engraved title-page within a very handsome historiated border, on the verso of which is a large engraved Fortescue coat of arms, printed in English Black Letter with engraved decorated initials throughout and engraved tailpieces. Small 4to (7.5" X 6"), bound in contemporary limp vellum, the spine lettered in antique manuscript, the fore-edge with leather ties still significantly intact, and curiously, with four leaves from the 16th century work "Voyage of the Wandering Knight bound in at the rear [6], 152, [4] ff., including final blank. Lacking signature oo (leaves 145-148) with no evidence that this signature was ever bound in. An attractive, clean and fresh copy, the text un-pressed, occasional early scholarly notations, the contemporary vellum with some expected wear, especially at the edges. VERY RARE. PUBLIC RECORDS SHOW NO COPIES HAVE APPEARED AT AUCTION AS FAR BACK AS THE 1970s, and there are no other copies known to be on the market. This is apparently the most elusive of the two rare English imprints, which OCLC lists in only 16 copies. Pedro Mexia's (1497-1551) work, in Fortescue's absolutely wonderful Elizabethan English, of tales covering the customs, practices and beliefs of the Romans, Greeks, Persians, Hebrews and early Christians with lessons to be learned from kings and authors on philosophy, science, astrology, government, military combat, religion and life.

ARTÉMIDORE d'ÉPHÈSE
Nicolas Bonsons, Paris 1576 - Plein veau pastiche Un volume in-16 (116x70 mm), 89-(6)-49 feuillets . Quelques petites déchirures, mouillures claires Ce traité d'interprétation des rêves - Oneirokritika, en grec - est le seul et unique ouvrage antique de ce genre qui nous soit parvenu dans son intégralité. Artémidore rédige un traité technique très fouillé qui a été extrêmement populaire durant tout le Moyen-Âge et a profondément influencé les mentalités. Freud tenait cet ouvrage en grande estime et en saluera l'importance dans Die Traumdeutung. La première traduction française de l'Onirocriticon date de 1546, mais seule la traduction des trois premiers livres sur les cinq fut alors publié (Trad. par Ch. Fontaine, chez Tournes à Lyon). En 1547 Marnef y ajoute le livre d'Augustin Niphe sur les divinations et augures (traduit par Antoine du Mouilin). En 1555 Tournes publie enfin la traduction des cinq livres et y ajoute celle d'un petit traité de Maxime Valère touchant les songes. Notre édition est la première complète de la traduction des cinq livres d'Artémidore, du petit traité de Maxime Valère et du livre de Niphe sur les divinations. Nous n'avons pas trouvé d'autre exemplaire de cette édition dans les bibliothèques publiques, à l'exception, peut-être, d'un exemplaire à la bibliothèque Sainte Geneviève (collation identique, mais page de titre manquante).

Contemporary blindstamped Pigskin over wooden boards with ribbed back, Folio (the binding is worn at some places, 'Reformationsband' with many stamps on the boards depicting various saints. Johann Brenz (1499-1570) was a German reformer. Under the influence of Luther he reorganized his church at Hall, Suabia, but at the time of the Smalkaldie War, in 1546, he was obliged to flee to Württemberg. He was appointed minister of the Collegiate Church of Stuttgart in 1553, and is said to have been the first exponent of the Reformation there. In the controversies between Zwingli and Luther, he took the side of the latter, and with others wrote the famous Syngramma Suevicum (1525). He was a writer of great ability and popularity. One of his teachings was that the body of the Lord is everywhere present; hence his followers were called ‘Ubiquitarians.’) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First edition of a famous and original treatise on perspective by the prominent mathematician Salomon de Caus (1576?-1626), here in the very rare issue with the imprint of John Norton in London (alone) in 1612, with the name and date revised in the title-plate. The ESTC records 1611 London and 1612 London/Frankfurt issues of Caus's Perspective, but not the present 1612 London issue.Caus was renowned as an inventor of mechanical devices, both utilitarian and entertaining. His present work clearly explains and illustrates all aspects of perspective drawing, including intricate projections, optical illusions, shadows, anamorphic images and the mirroring of objects. With 2 contemporary perspective construction drawings in the foot margin of one page and some manuscript annotations. One plate has two small abrasions in the corner, but the book is further in very good condition, with only some small marginal tears and minor marginal water stains. Binding rebacked and restored, so structurally sound. A very rare issue of the first edition of a classic work on perspective, with 81 beautiful engravings.

Manuscrito.]
S.l. (París), 1576. . 33 cm. Sin paginar, pero 16 h., a doble cara. Enc. media piel, puntas. * Se trata de la traducción coetánea de un edicto del rey de Francia Enrique III leído ante el Parlamento francés, sobre la paz y restauración del orden en la nación. El documento manuscrito contiene el concierto y orden que su majestad quiere y entiende sea guardado para el mantenimiento de la paz. Como comenta Michel Péronnet en "El siglo XVI, de los grandes descubrimientos a la contrarreforma" (AKAL, pág. 311), ?Desde su llegada a Francia, Enrique III reculta un ejército e intenta reconquistar las provincias del sur (invierno de 1574-1575). El 6 de mayo de 1576 [muy poco antes, por lo tanto, de la redacción del presente edicto] se firma una nueva paz entre ambos bandos: la paz de Beaulieu o la ?paix de Monsieur? en homenaje a Francisco Alençon [hermano del rey]. Las nuevas disposiciones que recoge, muchas de ellas presentes en estas páginas, son de gran importancia, pues servirán de base al posterior edicto de Nantes promulgado por Enrique IV en 1598 y que pondría fin a las guerras de religión. Entre dichas disposiciones, el monarca indemniza a todas las víctimas de San Bartolomé, concede la libertad de culto y ofrece garantías militares, entre otros, atribuyendo guarniciones defensivas a las tropas protestantes. historia de francia, guerras de religión, siglo XVI, enrique III, edictos

(American Incunabula)
Mexico City: Pedro Ocharte and Antonio Espinosa, 1576. Near fine. Single leaf 10 by 15 inches, printed on both sides on fine paper in red and black. The leaf begins with the chant "Pascha nostrum immolatus est Christus" and a large two line woodcut 'P' in red. Near the bottom begins the 'Feria secunda post Pascha. Introitus", with the verse "Introduxit vos dominus in terram..." and beginngin with a large historialed woodcut intiial 'I' printed in red and black. On the obverse is found the beginning of the Gradual "Hec [sic] dies quam fecit dominus..." and with a large two line woodcut 'H' printed in red. The five line chant has staves printed in red with black notes, the stems on the virgae descending to the bottom line of music regardless of where they occur on the staff, a point which distinguishes this printing form many others. The first and third music selections are in the 'fah' clef; the introit in the 'do' clef. The term American Incunabula is generally used to indicate imprints in the Americas in the 16th century beginning with Mexico City in 1539. A little fingering and soil else this is a very good exemplar and quite rare. Only 4 copies of the Graduale are known (Library of Congress, Newberry Library, Biblioteca Nacional and one in private hands in Mexico. We have been unable to find a census of individual leaves form the Graduale but note that there are no copies of it otherwise available, nor are there many other American Incunabular available leaves either.

PLAUTO Tito Maccio.
"Nunc denuò plurimis quae in priorem editionem irrepserant mendis repurgatus, multisque in locis in gratiam antiquariorum illustratus". "Cum gemino Indice: priore verborum, locutionum & sententiarum: posteriore eorum quae Commentariis D. Lambini continentur". Testo latino. Cm.33,5x20,7. Pg.(8), 792, (56). Legatura in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso a quattro nervature. Un bollino cartaceo applicato al piatto anteriore. Al frontespizio marca tipografica raffifurante un serpente tra le fiamme che morde un mano divina, con il motto "Neque mors, neque venenum". Cartigli e capilettera incisi. Pubblicata la prima volta l'anno precedente, nel 1576, la versione del Lambino delle 20 commedie di Plauto, con ricchissimo apparato di commentari e note, è opera di grande rarità. Il presente testo ne costituisce una contraffazione assai stimata, al pari di quella pubblicata nello stesso anno a Lione. Tito Maccio Plauto (Sarsina, tra il 255 e il 250 a.C. ?" 184 a.C.) fu uno dei principali commediografi romani, esponente del genere teatrale della "Palliata" promosso da Livio Andronico, innovatore della letteratura latina. Assai popolare ai tempi di Cicerone, ebbe straordinaria capacità di rappresentare i caratteri umani, attingendo spesso alla letteratura classica greca. Dionisio Lambino, nome italianizzato di Denis Lambin (Montreuil - sur - Mer, 1516?"1572) fu un apprezzato filologo. Compiuti gli studi ad Amiens ed a Tolosa, passò nel 1550 al servizio del Cardinale De Tournon, con cui compì numerosi viaggi in Italia, segnatamente a Roma, Lucca … [Click Below for Full Description]

In 4to (cm 19,5); pergamena rigida recente; cc. (2), 44. Armi papali al titolo. Ottima copia.RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE di questo trattato sulle cause delle maree e delle correnti marine. L'autore affronta il problema sia nel Mediterraneo, in particolare nel Mar Adriatico e nel mare di Corsica e Sardegna fino alle stretto di Gibilterra, sia nell'oceano. Diversi capitoli sono infatti dedicati all'Oceano Pacifico e soprattutto all'Oceano Atlantico, in cui le maree sono spiegate in base ad un fenomeno per cui lo stretto di Magellano causerebbe un ostruzione al costante flusso oceanico orientato da est ad ovest. Questo fenomeno, secondo lo Sfondrati, spiegherebbe anche la presenza di maree sulle coste del Brasile e la loro assenza nel Golfo del Messico a partire dallo stretto di Panama. Lo Sfondrati, scienziato e scrittore cremonese, fu attivo a Ferrara nella seconda metà  Cinquecento. Pubblicò anche un trattato In febrim (Torino, 1576) (cfr. F. Arisi, Cremona literata, Parma, 1702 - 1741, II, p. 418). Riccardi, I, 2a parte, col. 4531. Adams, S - 1038. BMSTCItalian, p. 624. Edit16, CNCE35896. J. Alden - D.C.

[HUGUENOTS - Peace de Monsieur, 1576]
S.l. [Nuremberg]: s.n. [Nikolas Knorr], 1576. IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. Small 4to. 4 ff. (including final blank), blindstamp of now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut. Recent sympathetic quarter calf over sprinkled boards, red morocco lettering piece A contemporary German "newspaper" account of the Peace of Monsieur, being a Treaty of 63 Articles and concessions to the Huguenots, signed in Paris, with descriptions of ceremony and circumstance in which the Edict was delivered publically, including the regalia and robes of Henri III. Of this text no copy is listed in CCFr. "The proclamation of peace was made on the 14th day of May, 1576, the King proceeding in state to notify the same to the assembled chambers. The concessions made to the Huguenots, and the vast sums of money distributed, so incensed the public, that in the capital, and in many of the principal towns, the heralds were received with hissing and throwing of stones. The people of Paris, moreover, refused to permit bonfires to be lighted; and smashed the windows of any who, in obedience to the royal order, attempted an illumination. The placards announcing the peace, and the copies of the treaty signed at Beaulieu and posted in the public squares, were torn to shreds. When the King quitted the Chambers he desired to proceed to the celebration of a Te Deum in Notre Dame ; but the exasperation of the Parisians caused the ceremony to be deferred to the following day. This being accordingly done, not one individual of the chapter of Notre Dame was then to be prevailed upon to officiate at the thanksgiving … [Click Below for Full Description]

Nicolay, Nicolas.
Antwerp, Willem Silvius, 1576. 8vo. (14) pp., 1 blank f., 328 (but: 408), (30) pp., final blank f. With woodcut title border and 60 full-page costume woodcuts in the text. 17th-century vellum with ms. title to spine. Rare first Italian edition, published in the same year and by the same printer as the second French one. "Fort estimée et recherchée pour les excellentes figures" (Olschki). Silvius re-issued the book in 1577 with a new title page; he simultaneously produced a German and a Dutch version, all with the same illustrations, considered "the first serious introduction to Turkish costume" (Atabey). The costumes include Janissaries, merchants, pilgrims, peasants, clerics, a physician, a cook, etc. "C'est la première série de documents sérieux sur les habillements du proche Orient" (Colas). The woodcuts, based on the etchings in the original edition, which appeared in Lyon in 1567/68, are usually attributed to Assuerus van Londerseel (Ahasver von Landfeldt), but Mortimer, Funck and Hollstein cite Antonij van Leest. "Nicolay was the royal geographer sent by Henri II to Constantinople to join d'Aramon's embassy in 1551. [.] The engraved plates are attributed to Louis Danet, or Louis Thiry" (Atabey). - Some browning due to paper; several marginalia, some slight edge flaws.
