         Le Scienze matematiche ridotte in tavole.

      Appresso la Compagnia della Stampa 1577 - In-folio de 2 ff.n.ch. et 59 pp.ch. ; demi-basane bleue, dos lisse et muet, plats de papier marbré bleu (reliure moderne). Sotheran, Suppl. I, 1028 : "Very rare" ; pas dans Adams ; DSB, III, 558-559. Édition originale, rare. Cet ouvrage très curieux donne, en 45 tableaux synoptiques, un abrégé des sciences comprenant, outre les mathématiques proprement dites, l'astronomie, la perspective, les miroirs, la gnomonique, l'hydrographie, la mécanique et l'architecture. L'auteur, mathématicien, cosmographe et architecte né à Pérouse en 1537, fut évêque d'Alatri (Frosinone), où il mourut en 1586. Il changea de nom lors de son entrée dans l'ordre des frères prêcheurs. Pour le rédacteur du catalogue Sotheran, ce livre – qui a échappé à Brunet, Lalande, Houzeau & Lancaster et Cantor –, constitue la première tentative de classification des sciences mathématiques. Pour Libri, il s'agit d'une sorte "d'arbre encyclopédique des mathématiques qui doit intéresser ceux qui s'occupent de la classification des sciences" (cf. Histoire des sciences mathématiques en Italie, cité par Sotheran). Bon exemplaire ; marge intérieure des deux premiers feuillets renforcée avec atteinte à quelques lettres de la préface (f. A2 r), petite déchirure sans manque au f. C2, titre un peu taché, quelques faibles rousseurs. Cachet du bibliophile florentin Gustavo Galletti sur le titre. – Autre provenance : Landau-Finaly (ex-libris). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Opera nuova chiamata la Fama libro primo [only published]. Canzonelle alla Napolitana...

      4to (198x140 mm). (2), 68, (2) pp. With a woodcut portrait (dated 1577) of the author at the age of 38 on the title-page and 6 woodcuts in the text, each showing 4 allegorical illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum, spine recently reinforced, endleaves renewed, small marginal stains in the first and last three leaves, uniformly slightly browned throughout, old repair in the lower outer corner of the title-page not affecting the text, a good, genuine copy.VERY RARE FIRST EDITION containing sixty-one 'canzonelle alla napolitana' presented in sequence without music. If separate music fascicles were published, no copies of it are known to have survived. As in his other publications, each of the pieces in the Opera nuova is dedicated to individual women. The choices here show him to have been well connected to some of the most prominent Lyonnais families including the Buonvisi, merchants from Lucca (cf. F. Dobbins, Lyons: Commercial and Cultural Metropolis, in: "The Renaissance. From 1470 to the End of the 16th Century", I. Fenlon, ed., London, 1989, p. 210). At the end are printed the Passioni amorose, a series of quatrains accompanied by allegorical woodcuts."Si sa della diffusione del repertorio canzonettistico [di Fiorino], in alcune regioni dell'Europa occidentale, già dagli anni sessanta e, poi, sopratutto nel decennio successivo; e appunto a Lione, nel 1577, il musicista calabrese pubblica le canzonelle alla napoletana del volume che egli intitola Opera nuova chiamata la fama. In questo libro, già il frontespizio fornisce alcune importanti informazioni, con le quali è possibile corregere definitivamente la prospettiva biografica che ha visto Fiorino attivo presso i circoli veneziani - con la sua produzione di villanelle e canzonetta musicalmente ancora vicine alla villanesca - verso la metà del sedicesimo secolo o poco prima, negli stessi anni cio è di Willaert, Parabosco e Perissone Cambio, per poi dare alle stampe tali composizioni in ritardo di circa un ventennio, rispetto alla loro effettiva circolazione: quando del resto il polifonista calabrese, forse ormai 'vecchio e senza lavoro al nord' e 'lontano dall'opulenza delle corti dove fino a qualche anno prima era lodato e richiesto' potrebbe in ultimo esser pure ritornato a Rossano. Orbene, la pagina del titolo di quest'Opera nuova reca anche l'incisione di un ritratto del musicista, nella diffusa prospettiva rinascimentale di tre quarti, entro una cornice ovale che specifica: 'Gasparo Fiorino musico et poeta di la citta di Rossano etatis sue XXX8'. La data di nascita del Fiorino, quindi, resta fissata indubitabilmente al 1539; il che ben si accorda con la presenza a Venezia del polifonista calabrese - nelle riunioni accademiche presso il Veniero - non prima della fine degli anni cinquanta, come si è visto, nonché con edizioni di canzonette posteriori di circa un quindicennio, e contenenti espliciti riferimenti poetici a personaggi e eventi contemporanei. Ma, inoltre - ciò che forse è acora più significativo - tale ulteriore volume di Fiorino documenta le dimenzioni al contempo culturali e commerciali della sua attività poetica e musicale" (C. Galiano, La musica e il mondo in Italia durante il Rinascimento: Sistema della dedica e modelli culturali nobiliari nelle villanelle e canzonelle di Gasparo Fiorino, in: "Villanella, Napolitana, Canzonetta. Relazioni tra Gasparo Fiorino, compositori calabresi e scuole italiane del Cinquecento. Atti del Convegno Internazionale di Studi Arcavacata di Rende-Rossano Calabro, 9-11 dicembre, 1994", M.P. Borsetta & A. Pugliese, eds., Vibo Valentia, 1999, pp. 571-572).Little is known about Gasparo Fiorino, a native from Rossano (Calabria). He probably was a singer at San Marco about the middle of the sixteenth century. At the time of one of his major works, La nobiltà di Roma: versi in lode di cento gentildonne romane (Rome, 1571), he was a 'musico' in the service of Cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, presumably in his Roman palace and at Ferrara. He apparently lived also for a while in Venice, where he was directly acquainted to Domenico Vernier and in contact with the musician Adriano Willaert. Strong social connections also inform his two other surviving musical publications, Libro secondo di canzonelle and Libro terzo di canzonelle (both printed in Venice in 1574 and both for three and four voices). The former is dedicated to the ladies of Genoa and is the longest publication of its kind; the latter is dedicated to Giovanni Battista Doria and praises the military and naval achievements of various members of this distinguished Genoese family in its preface. The volume contains several pieces dedicated to the victors of the Battle of Lepanto (1571), including Marcantonio Colonna, the Cardinal Granvelle, and Don Juan of Austria. The word "canzonella", probably coined by Fiorino himself, no doubt was intended as a fusion of 'canzonetta' and 'villanella' (cf. A. Pugliese, Gasparo Fiorino musicista calabrese, in: "Fausto Torrefranca: l'uomo, il suo tempo, la sua opera. Atti del Convegno Internazionale di Studi Vibo Valentia, 15-17 dicembre 1983", G. Ferraro & A. Pugliese, eds., Vibo Valentia, 1993, pp. 235-350).Edit 16, CNCE69314; Universal STC, no. 130108; Adams, G-1046; N.

         Apomasaris Apotelesmata: sive de significatis et eventis insomniorum.

      Francofurti: Excudebat Andreas Wechelus 1577 - [1] 405, [10] pp. This Latin translation is the First edition of Ibn Sirin’s famous work on the interpretation of dreams to be published in any language, published in Frankfurt in 1577 it was translated from a very imperfect Greek manuscript by Johannes Leunclavius. This edition has however been falsely attributed to the astrologer Abu Mashar, the word Apomasaris is a corruption of the name of the famous Albumasar, or Abu Ma’shar, and Leunclavius afterwards acknowledged his mistake in attributing the work to him. Bound in 3/4 black morocco over marbled paper covered boards, flat spine with lettering and rules in gilt, marbled endpapers with matching marbled edges, head of spine with surface chip.

         Le Portulan contenant la description tant des Mers du Ponent [sic] despuis le detroict de Gibeltar [sic] iusques à la Schiuse en Flandres, que de la Mer Méditerranée, ou du Levant, faict en vieux langage Italien, & nouvellement traduict en Françoys

      Extremely rare first French edition of the Portolano del Mare, usually attributed to Cadamosto (Ca da Mosto), a Venetian traveller under the service of Henry the Navigator, who discovered Cape Verde in 1455-56. The Portolano was first published in 1490, and subsequent editions were printed in the 16th century (first in 1528), often with the Consulate, and in an abridgment format, this edition is much larger, includes the full original contents, and possibly more; this is the first time the work, a virtual navigation guide to the Mediterranean and Middle East, is translated and published in French (the translation prepared by Gaspard Carentenne). The 1490 edition is virtually unobtainable, and only later Italian editions, in their abridged form appear to be common, this first French edition is exceedingly rare. It contains sailing instructions through the Mediterranean, from Gibraltar to the Levant, and was probably compiled by Alvise Cadamosto. Cadamosto, or Ca da Mosto (1432 - 1488) was a Venetian navigator and explorer in the service of Portugal´s Henry the Navigator, famous for his explorations along the West African coast in 1455 and 1456, and the discovery of the Cape Verde islands. The narrative of his exploration was published in the Paesi novamente retrovati et Novo Mondo (1507). The title page is illustrated with a large and dramatic woodcut device, taken from earlier Italian and Spanish editions of the Consulate, and later, of the Livre du Consulat, also printed by Roux in 1577, it shows two caravels sailing under the patronage of four Saints; the verso of the title page is occupied entirely by a large woodcut with the arms of France within an architectural frame. According to USTC (94358), a copy of it was printed in 1577 in Avignon, however no copy of this edition is known. Rarity: no copy seems to have appeared at auction according to Rarebookhub, and only two copies are found in libraries, that of the BNF and Amsterdam. Brunet, IV, 832 (for the 1490 edition).

         A pair of table globes] Marius Cartarus Viterbiensis Autor Incidebat Romae MDLXXVII.

      Rome, 1577 - The first dated globe to name Canada The terrestrial: 158mm diameter and composed of 12 engraved gores laid down onto a solid wooden sphere, signed in the engraved cartouche, the equatorial graduated in degrees, the meridian of Ferro (Hierro) graduated in degrees, tropics and polar circles marked. The celestial: 158mm diameter and composed of 12 engraved gores laid down onto a solid wooden sphere, signed in the engraved cartouche, the equatorial graduated in degrees, the ecliptic graduated in degrees and divided into the houses of the zodiac, marked with their respective symbols, the equatorial tropics and polar circles marked, stars shown to six orders of magnitude with nebulae, the constellations depicted pictorially and identified by their Latin names. The globes are mounted in circular wooden yokes by threaded brass pins screwing into the yoke, the mounted on turned wooden stands, total height on stand 400mm, gores with small areas of surface loss skillfully infilled. Publication This extremely rare set of late Renaissance Italian globes was the work of the cartographer, engraver, publisher and print merchant Mario Cartaro (1540-1620). In 1560, Cartaro was working in Rome, where he produced his first known engraving, a print in reverse after a drawing by Heinrich Aldegrever. In the following years Cartaro was associated with the celebrated cartographer and publisher Antonio Lafreri (1512-1577), and his engravings may be found in two of Lafreri's composite publications: 'Speculum romanae magnificentiae' and 'Tavole moderne di geografia'. In 1586 Cartaro moved to Naples, and in 1589 he was appointed cartographer to the Giunta de Regi Lagni, holding the position until his death in 1620. Cartaro was also an important figure in the history of Italian globe-making. In the first half of the sixteenth century, the only globes produced in Italy were either manuscript globes or engraved metal globes. Cartaro's terrestrial globe of 1577 was the first dated printed globe to be made in Italy (the brothers Livio and Giulio Sanuto had produced an earlier, undated terrestrial globe with engraved gores around the period 1564-1574), and the accompanying celestial globe was the first celestial globe with printed gores to be produced in Italy. These globes are celebrated for the restrained delicacy, precision, and beauty of their engraving, which is reminiscent of Lafreri's work, and Suarez comments that, "the engraving quality is typical of the finest Italian makers, for whom elegance and clarity were overriding concerns, and superfluous decoration avoided", and Shirley judges that "the twelve gores [.] with their stippled oceans and minimal decorations, are in execution among the best Italian work of the era", whilst Raymond Lister identifies Cartaro as one of the most "important sixteenth-century globe-makers" working in Italy (Old Maps and Globes (London: 1979), p. 78). Geography The terrestrial globe is based on Giacomo Gastaldi's xylographic world map of circa 1561, and it is thus the first dated globe to show the mythical Strait of Anian separating America and Asia, and the first dated globe to name Canada, following Gastaldi, who first showed these features. However, Cartaro also updated Gastaldi's cartography where he could use more recent surveys and explorations – for example, he correctly marks New Guinea as an island, which Gastaldi did not. The terrestrial globe is known in two states, and this example is (like that described by Suarez) in the later state, with North America extending deep into the polar circle and two lakes appearing in the continent, the more northerly marked 'Cani' (i.e. Lake Conibas). The celestial globe is derived from Gemma Frisius' celestial globe of c1537, and the stylized pictorial constellations are similar in form and design to those on Frisius' globe, which, in turn, are mainly derived from Albrecht Dürer's 1515 xylographic charts of the northern and southern celestial hemispheres, 'Imagines coeli se [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Lorenzo a ... de Agosto de mil y quinientos y setenta y siete. Yo el Rey. 1577. An interesting and rare manuscript of economic nature from Phillip II of Spain; ordering and stressing the prohibition of removing gold and silver from the colonies unless expressly allowed. These "cedulas" or edicts were sent to the different posts of administration of the Americas and Philippines for information purposes. Phillip II (1527 - 1598) had one of the vastest kingdoms known under his rule (1556 - 1598) as King of Spain, Portugal, Naples, Sicily, the Seventeen Provinces, etc. This enormous empire was centralized, thus every order came from mainland Spain and was to be executed by the colonial administration. The corruption was considerable as to some extent the Monarchy was unable to have absolute control being thousands of miles away; it had to trust the "adelantados" and locals "criollos". The manuscript continues: Resuelva? Que en muy pocos días se saca y desaparece la mayor parte dello lo qual según se ha hecho relación entre otras causas proceden principalmente, de que algunas... que por cedulas mias tienen o vienen dice ... mi para sacar alguna cantidad de dinero (oro y plata) usando de diversas cutelas, y modos y soploz?

         Histoire florentine de Nicolas Machiavel citoien et Secretaire de Florence. Nouvellement traduicte d'Italien en François, Par le Seigneur de Brinon Gentil-homme ordinaire de la chambre du Roy.

      - Paris, Guillaume de la Noue, 1577. In-8, plein veau acajou de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs gothiques ornés d’un petit fer aldin répété entre-nerfs, plats ornés de deux jeux de triples filets d'encadrement à froid avec petit fer doré aux angles et fleuron en losange au centre sur les plats, (44), 294, vignette de titre à la marque de l'imprimeur, bandeaux et lettrines. (22), 294 feuillets, vignette de titre à la marque de l'imprimeur, bandeaux et lettrines. Première édition de la première traduction française des 'Istorie fiorentine’, par le seigneur Yves de Brinon, qui la dédit à Catherine de Médicis dont il fut l'espion. Cette édition a été partagée entre G. De la Noue et J. Borel, qui obtinrent conjointement le privilège pour dix ans. Entre les deux émissions, seul le titre a changé: "Histoire de Florence" pour Borel et "Histoire Florentine" pour La Noue, comme indiqué dans le privilège. L'ouvrage a été composé à la demande du cardinal Jules de Médicis et publié à titre posthume. Machiavel analyse l’histoire du développement politique et économique de la cité qu’il saisit d’une façon magistrale. C’est également le laboratoire dans lequel les thèses exposées dans le 'Prince' et dans les 'Discours sur la première décade de Tite-Live' sont mises à l’épreuve du devenir historique.

         Letter from the King of Spain recommending the reading of astronomical texts to update Saint Isidorus´ encyclopedia

      Very rare and desirable letter from the King of Spain Philip II to the Church of Toledo recommending the reading of an Astronomy text to complete and correct the undergoing project on the works of Saint Isidorus of Seville, stressing the argument that works of such academicism should not be lost. The King asks for hastiness, and requests for the books to be delivered back after being used by the Church, introducing his Guardajoyas Hernando de Briviesca as the person in charge of receiving them. Philip II (1527 - 1598) besides being one of the most powerful kings of the Western World, was a renown bibliophile, who spent a considerable portion of his life overseeing the building of the Escorial; the building houses a magnificent library, the first of its kind in Spain -easily recognizable by the disposition of its books, which are set with the spines facing the walls. His interest for the cultural development of Spain was heavily influenced by the Church´s teachings, and thus remained somewhat delayed in comparison to the rest of Europe; a letter such as this tells us that Philip was personally involved in academic writings. Venerable Dean y Cabildo de la Sancta Yglesia de Toledo sede vacante sabed que para proseguir y acabar la correction de las obras de Sancto Ysidoro q[ue] avemos mandado hazer por honra suya y porque no se pierdan obras tan catholicas y de tanta erudicion, es necessario que los que entienden en corregirlas vean algunos exemplars manuscriptos de las obras y trattados siguientes: De natura rerum ad Sisebutum de Astronomia, Monastice regule. Differentiarum Libri duo, de origine officiorum ecclesiasticorum, y porque se nos a hecho relacion que estos tractados con otros algunos sobre partes de la Sagrada Scriptura se hallan en la libreria de esa Sancta Yglesia, y deseamos que la correction se acabe con brevedad, holgaremos que hagais buscar con diligencia los dichos tractados con los demas que huviese en la dicha libreria que sean obras del Sancto, y que luego nos envieis los que se hallareis dirigidos a Hernando de Birviesca [Briviesca] mi Guardajoyas que yo tengo mandado que estos y los demas que para este effecto se huvieren traido de esa Sancta Yglesia se buelvan a buen recado a ella en aviendose visto.

It lists simple medicines ("simplicia") and compound medicines ("composita"), together with some brief comments on the ingredients and the preparations of the medicines. "Remedies for the patients in the Caecilia Hospital [Leiden] were in accordance with the prescriptions in this ‘poor-pharmacopoeia'" (Beukers).Very slightly browned, with minor thumbing on the first and last page and a few small spots.

         Apologia doctissimi viri Rogeri Aschami, Angli, pro caena dominica, contra missam & eius prestigias: in academia olim cantabrigiensi exertationis gratia inchoata

      Londini: Pro Francisco Coldocko, 1577. First edition. [viii], 296 pp. 12mo. Eighteenth-century calf; joints repaired, the first leaf is blank but for the signature mark and this copy, as in most, has the imprint date hand-corrected to 1578, worming in lower margin not affecting text. First edition. [viii], 296 pp. 12mo. A rare anticlerical tract by Ascham, whose role in the Protestant Reformation has recently received more scholarly attention. In his role as royal tutor, he would have been forced to take some position, and his cautious manner to religious reform is expressed here as he "attempted to sway by rhetoric rather than reasoned theological argument" (ODNB). Unpublished during his lifetime, it appeared ten years after his death. Very scarce on the market, the only previous copy to appear at auction was at Sotheby's 1931. STC 825; ESTC S100257. Provenance: George Stokes (bookplate); Cardiff Castle (bookplate); Robert S. Pirie (bookplate)

With an engraved frontispiece incorporating an author's portrait, an full-page engraved author's portrait, 2 double-page engraved plates, hundreds of engravings in text (including 1 full-page and 1 integral double-page) by J. Swelinck, W.H. Hondius, C. van Dalen and others. Gold-tooled grey-black morocco (ca. 1758), richly gold-tooled spine, boards and board edges, gilt edges; by the so-called "star bindery" in The Hague.

      Museum Catsianum 1; for engravings by Swelinck see: Hollstein XXIX, p. 143, no. 10; for the binding: Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding IIA, pp. 145-155. First edition of a richly illustrated work comprising all the works, that had then been published, of Jacob Cats (1577-1660), one of the greatest poets and humourists of the Dutch golden age and one of its greatest statesmen. Although he published nothing until he was forty years old, he was very prolific for the rest of his long life. He wrote for a broad public, and many of his works were illustrated with emblematic copperplates by the greatest Dutch artists, especially Adriaen van de Venne, responsible for many plates in the present edition. The book includes Cats's Proteus, of Sinne- en minnebeelden (1618), Houwelyck (1625) Spiegel (1631) and many more. Works like these delivered him the name "father Cats", due to the educational and pedagogical character of his texts.The binding can be ascribed to the so-called "star bindery". "The bindery was situated in The Hague and had a wide clientele, within and (far) outside the town" (Storm van Leeuwen) and is known for its prize and presentation bindings, including several presented to William V, Prince of Orange or members of his family. With some tears in the outer margins, not affecting the text or illustrations, occasional spots and marginal thumbing, lower margin of pages 123-130 of Buyten-leven op Sorghvliet damaged: otherwise good. Binding slightly rubbed along the extremities, but otherwise in very good condition.

         Quattuor Novissima

      1577 - Serie completa di 4 incisioni al bulino, 1577 circa. Da disegni Jan van der Straet, lat. Johannes Stradanus. Esemplari nel primo stato di due, con l’excudit di Philips Galle. I Novissimi, dal latino Quattuor Novissima, secondo la teologia cattolica rappresentano gli ultimi quattro eventi che accadranno all’Uomo al termine della vita: la Morte, il Giudizio, Il Paradiso o l’Inferno. Le quattro incisioni, di formato ovale, sono tutte basate su disegni del celebre artista fiammingo Jan van der Straet, noto come Stradanus. Dopo aver completato la propria formazione ad Anversa, nel 1545 partì alla volta dell’Italia, ma mantenne sempre rapporti con la città di provenienza, inviando i suoi disegni che, tradotti in incisioni, venivano pubblicati soprattutto da Philips Galle. Nel 1577, il maestro di H. Goltzius, Dirck V. Coornhert, presentò il suo allievo a Galle: questa suite, dunque, è tra le prime opere dell’artista olandese. Ciascuna scena è spiegata dai versetti in latino che la circondano, presi dalla Prima Lettera di S. Paolo Apostolo ai Corinzi e/o dal Vangelo secondo Matteo. La PRIMA TAVOLA della serie, inscritta in lastra, in basso nell’immagine, "Johannes Stradanus invetor/Phls Galle Excud.", raffigura La resurrezione dei morti, così come descritto nei due versetti che circondano l’immagine: "in momento in ictu oculi in novissima tuba canet enim et mortui resurgent incorrupti et nos inmutabimur" (Corinzi, 15.52) "in un istante, in un batter d’occhio, al suono dell’ultima tromba. Essa infatti suonerà e i morti risorgono incorruttibili e noi saremo trasformati". "Et mittet Angelos suos cum tuba, et voce magna: et congregabunt electos eius a quatuor venyis a summis caelorum usque ad terminos eorum" (Matt. 24.31) "Egli manderà i suoi angeli, con una grande tromba, ed essi raduneranno i suoi eletti dai quattro venti, da un estremo all'altro dei cieli". Nella parte superiore dell’immagine, la venuta di Cristo in gloria, tra Santi e Beati, è accompagnata dagli angeli che suonano le tube; sulla terra, i morti risorgono dalle loro tombe. L’umanità è rappresentata principalmente dalle tre figure femminili in primo piano, che rispecchiano in pieno lo stile manierista, con le teste piccole e i corpi allungati. La SECONDA TAVOLA, inscritta Johannes Stradanus invetor/ Phls Galle Excud, , illustra la Divisione tra Beati e Dannati, un angelo separa i Beati dai Dannati che, presi dal rimorso e dalla vergogna delle azioni cattive commesse, nascondono i volti tra le mani, secondo i versetti: "Unusquisque mercedem accipiet secundum suum laborem" (Corinzi 3.8) Ciascuno riceverà la propria ricompensa secondo il proprio lavoro "Congregabuntur ante eum omnes gentes, et separabit eos ab invicem sicut pastor segregat oves ab haedis" (Matt. 25.32 ) E saranno riunite davanti a lui tutte le genti, ed egli separerà gli uni dagli altri, come il pastore separa le pecore dai capri Nella TERZA TAVOLA, inscritta Ioha Stradanus inven/ Henricus goltz. Sculp - la sola lastra a recare la firma di Goltzius nel primo stato, si mostrano I Beati accolti in Paradiso dagli angeli. Tre i versetti latini che corrono intorno: "Quod oculus non vidit nec auris audivit nec in cor hominis ascendit quae praeparavit Deus his qui diligunt eum" (Corinzi, 2.9) Quelle cose che occhio non vide, né orecchio udì, né mai entrarono in cuore di uomo,Dio le ha preparate per coloro che lo amano. "Venite Benedicti patris mei possidete paratum vobis regnum a costitutione mundi" (Matt. 25.35) Venite, benedetti del Padre mio, ricevete in eredità il regno preparato per voi fin dalla fondazione del mondo. "tunc iusti fulgebunt sicut sol in regno Patris eorum" (Matt. 13.43) Allora i giusti splenderanno come il sole nel regno del Padre loro Nella QUARTA TAVOLA, inscritta Iohannes/Stradanus Inve e Phls Galle excud, i Dannati scendono agli Inferi; alcuni sono tormentati da mostri, altri incatenati e trascinati via; da notare la posa della figura a sinistra, che è una crocifissione capovolta.

         San Girolamo penitente nel deserto, con due angeli

      1577 - Bulino, 1577, firmato e datato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Jacopo Zanguidi detto il Bertoja. Esemplare nel secondo stato di quattro con l’indirizzo dell’editore Lorenzo Vaccari. Bellissima prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera traduce in rame un dipinto del Bertoja andato perduto, come descritto da De Grazia. In precedenza, l’errata attribuzione dell’iscrizione Iacobus parmen. Inven, aveva fatto risalire l’opera ad un dipinto di Jacopo Palma. Manfred Sellink descrive un solo esemplare di primo stato, a Berlino, andato perduto durante la seconda Guerra Mondiale. Engraving, 1577, signed and dated at lower center. After Jacopo Zanguidi called Bertoja. Example of the second state of four with the address of the publisher Lorenzo Vaccari. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in very god conditions. The work translates a lost painting of Bertoja, as described by De Grazia. Previously, the erroneous attribution, had traced the work after a painting by Jacopo Palma. Manfred Sellink describes a single copy of the first state, in Berlin, that was lost during the Second World War.

Complessivamente esemplare genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Edizione originale ed unica di quest'interessante testo dedicato prevalentemente alla peste e che ben s'inserisce nella schiera di trattati del tempo che affrontavano l'argomento (Massaria, Silvatico, ecc). In esso Alfano si distingue per una particolare descrizione delle petecchie (pur senza nominarle esplicitamente). Quest'ultimo fu medico ed accademico, nacque a Salerno nel 1020 ed ivi morì nel 1085.
