        ORTELIUS & HOEFNAGEL PORTRAIT / ITALY – LAKE AGNANO, CAMPANIA.

      - This highly decorative tableau features scenes around Lake Agnano, Campania, surrounded by sumptuous Mannerist strapwork borders. Lake Agnano is a volcanic crater lake located just outside of Naples. Its unusual natural attributes had long made it a point of curiosity and it was often included on Italian itineraries for foreign travellers. The lake was surrounded by ancient Roman ruins and strange caves. From 1577 to 1578, the famed Flemish cartographer Abraham Ortelius and the great artist Joris Hoefnagel toured Italy together. In the upper roundel of the composition, Ortelius and Hoefnagel are shown together as they overlook the lake. To the left is the Cave of Sibyl, while to the right are the ruins of the Temple of Apollo. In the lower roundel is a view of the nearby Grotto del Cana, a cave filled with carbonic acid vapors that could render one unconscious after a few minutes. Lake Agnano remained a poplar tourist attraction until it was drained in 1870. The present view was engraved by Joris Hoefnagel and appeared within Georg Braun & Frans Hogenberg’s legendary townbook, Civitates Orbis Terrarum, specifically within volume III of the 6-part work, published in 1581. Abraham Ortelius (1527-98) is widely hailed as the ‘The Father of Modern Cartography,’ being the compiler of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (meaning ‘Theatre of the World’), first issued in Antwerp in 1570. Ortelius was a shrewd businessman who went to great lengths to obtain the finest possible source maps and to engrave works of great artistic beauty and intellectual merit. He was the earliest map mogul, as his publishing concern was the first cartographic enterprise to become a great international commercial empire. Ortelius’s maps were the most popular and widely recognized of his time and they had an enduring influence as numerous mapmakers copied them for many decades after his death. Joris Hoefnagel (1542 – 1601) was an esteemed Flemish painter, engraver and manuscript illuminator. He worked at various royal courts, including those of the Dukes of Bavaria and Rudolf II, the Holy Roman Emperor. Braun & Hogenberg’s Civitates Orbis Terrarum, the first great ‘town book’, featuring bird’s eye views of cities in Europe, Asia, Africa and America. This monumental endeavor featured 546 views and maps and was published in six volumes, issued from 1572 to 1618. The views from the Civitates are imbued with profound historical importance as, in many cases, they are the first accurate and detailed views of many World cities and towns, and were the most popular and influential images of these urban centres available to Europeans during the late 16th and much of the 17th Centuries. The Civitates was the result of the winning combination between Georg Braun (1541-1622), a brilliant writer and Roman Catholic priest from Cologne, and Frans Hogenberg (1535 - 1590), a Fleming, who was one of the era’s greatest engravers. Inspired by Abraham Ortelius’ groundbreaking atlas, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Antwerp, 1570), which featured all of the world’s known regions in detail (of which many of the maps were engraved by Hogenberg), Braun and Hogenberg aimed to depict all of the World’s major cities. Braun was largely responsible for writing and editing the highly entertaining text, while Hogenberg and Joris Hoefnagel engraved most of the magnificent views. During the latter years of the project, the engraving of the views was ably taken up by Hogenberg and Hoefnagel’s sons, Abraham Hogenberg and Jakob Hoefnagel.

        Habitus praecipuorum populorum, tam virorum quam foeminarum singulari arte depicti. Trachtenbuch darin fast allerley und der furnembsten Nationen die heutigs tags bekandt sein.

      Nuremberg, Hans Weigel, 1577]. - Folio (204 x 325 mm). 161 (instead of 220) hand-numbered woodcut plates in early 18th-century colour, mounted on backing paper and missing parts supplemented by hand. Later half calf with 18th-c. spine label. All edges sprinkled in red. First edition of Jost Amman's encyclopedic book of costumes. A strongly fragmented copy, as usual; in the early 19th century, the plates were mounted on backing paper by the owner, the trained landscape painter Jakob Linckh (1786-1841) from Stuttgart (cf. Thieme/B. 23, 254), who also coloured the volume throughout and supplemented all missing parts of the images and even of the text by hand. Linckh, who had studied in Rome, visited Greece in 1810. There he met Byron, who commissioned him to provide the illustrations for Hobhouse's travel book. - Wants 59 plates altogether; the remainder are trimmed closely at the upper edge, and most have severe defects in the lower half. Although the present collection begins with the plate showing the Emperor, as originally issued, the remaining woodcuts follow no apparent order. 20 plates show costumes of Turkey, Arabia, Persia, Egypt, and Ethiopia; others depict Greeks, Russians, and Englishmen. 28 plates show the costumes of today's Italy; German cities are well represented, as are France and Spain, Bohemia and Hungary. Also includes the famous picture of the Brazilian Tupinamba Indians: a man with a crown and belt of feathers, a knife, and a bow and arrow, beside a long-haired woman carrying a baby in a knotted sling. The illustration is an adaptation of two cuts from the "Recueil de la diversité des habits" (Paris, 1562; Antwerp, 1572) by Francois Descerpz, "one of the first likenesses of the Brazilian Indian" (Borba de Moraes). - Title page shows Jakob Linckh's autograph ownership (dated 1825); somewhat later stamped ownership of Anton Franzin (possibly the like-named Tyrolean law clerk, c. 1840) to flyleaf. VD 16, W 1487 (BSB copy incomplete). Lipperheide 7-8 (both copies incomplete). Andresen I, 234. Becker 140. Borba de Moraes II, 373f. Maggs, Bibl.

        Les navigations, peregrinations et voyages, faicts en la Turquie, par Nicolas de Nicolay.

      Guillaume Silvius, Antwerp 1577 - EXCELLENT EDITION OF THIS SEMINAL AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED WORK 4to. pp. (xxiv) 305 [ie 388] (xxxii). Roman letter, occasional Italic, prefatory epistle in Civilité. Small woodcut printer's device on title, title within typographical border, historiated woodcut initials and typographical ornaments, 60 full page woodcut plates within typographical borders. Slight age-yellowing, some mostly marginal spotting on first and last few leaves, small single worm hole in blank upper margin of thirty ll., the odd spot or thumb mark. A very good, clean copy in C19 English calf, gilt oval armorial device of the Society of writers to the Signet at centers of covers, spine with gilt ruled raised bands, rebacked with original spine laid down. Excellent edition of this seminal and beautifully illustrated work by Nicolay, a detailed account of his travels to the Near East illustrated with sixty spirited full-length portraits of male and female figures of all ages and ranks in local costume. It was first published in Lyons in 1568, with copperplates engraved by Louis Danet from Nicolay's original drawings [two reproduced in Mortimer-Harvard Fr. 386]. According to Mortimer, Nicolay's illustrations are 'the first to represent the costume of the Near East in detail', and were widely copied in the C16th; this edition is illustrated with fine woodcuts by Antonij van Leest, whose initials appear in the first and other plates, after those of the first edition. Dedicated by Nicolay to Charles IX, whom Nicolay served as Valet de chambre and géographe ordinaire, it also contains a long "Elegie" by Ronsard addressed to Nicolay, and a letter (in a fine Civilité type) from the publisher Silvius to Cornille Pruney. The book opens with Nicolay's long preface on traveling and the great travelers of history, from Noes and Jason down to Marco Polo, Vasco de Gama, Columbus, Pizarro, and many more. Book I describes, i.a., the Balearic islands, Algiers, Pantelleria, Malta and Tripoli, and its plates depict their women. Book II deals briefly with the Greek islands (i.a. Kithira, Khios, and Paros) and then concentrates on Constantinople describing in detail its antiquities, monuments, harem, mosques (St. Sophia in particular), and Turkish baths. Again, the plates portray women only, including a harem lodger, two women dressed to go to the baths, and one with two children. Contrastingly, Book III is all dedicated to men: Janizaries, the Sultan's valets, semi-naked wrestlers, the Sultan's cook, doctors, judges, relatives of Mahomet, pilgrims going and coming from the Mecca, and representatives of four religious confessions, one of whom has his penis pierced with a ring in order to preserve his chastity (p. 184). Book IV deals with Persia, Saudi Arabia, Greece and other Middle Eastern provinces. Its plates include an Arab and an Armenian merchant, a black slave, a Jewish merchant and a Jewish woman, a Turkish courtesan and a 'Delly', i.e. a 'mad and bold man' with plumed hat and shield, portrayed here riding a horse (p 238). Nicolay (1517-83) was, as Ronsard notes in his Elegie, extensively travelled and one of the best draughtsmen of his time. In 1551 he followed Gabriel d'Aramon, the French ambassador, to Constantinople, and visited all of the places mentioned in this book. He could speak nearly every European language and wrote several travel books. A landmark in the history of the travel to the Near East, handsomely illustrated throughout with very accurate costume plates. "His (Nicolay's) illustrations have been called the most influential introduction to Turkish costumes" Blackmer. Colas notes "c'est la première série de documents serieux sur les habillements du proche Orient". Not in BM STC Fr. C16th. Adams N 254. Brunet IV p. 67. Graesse IV p. 671. Göllner 1664 (the 1576 Silvius edition). JFB N144 (first french edition) "one of the earliest descriptions of the lands and peoples of the Near East". Alden has later English translation only.

        Het Nieuwe Testament ons Heeren Jesu Christi. Met ghetalen aen de canten gestelt, waer door de veersen bescheeden worden tot de aenwijsinge der Heyliger Schriftueren dienende (New Testament)

      Christoffel Plantijn (Christophe Plantin), T'Antwerpen 1577 - Octavo. [16], 679, [1]pp. Later blind-stamped calf. Raised bands. Metal clasps remnant. Book housed in a modern custom-made red cloth clamshell box, with gold lettering to spine. Title and calendar in red and black lettering. Title page within ornamental border. Title vignette with Plantin's motto 'Labore et Constantia' (By Labor and Constancy) which surrounds the symbol of a compass held by a hand extending from a bank of clouds and inscribing a circle. The center point of the compass indicates constancy, the moving point which renders the circle is the labor. Decorative initials, and tailpieces. Illustrated head-chapters. Strikingly illustrated throughout with 205 in-text woodcuts (including the 12 illustrating the calendar), this handsome edition of the New Testament is a perfect example of the fine books that were printed at the Plantin Press, in Anvers, during the late 16th century.Head and tail of spine chipped, and heavy rubbing to spine. Moderate rubbing on covers. Clasps missing. Previous owner's stamp on title. Minor and sporadic water-staining to lower inner margin 9not affecting text). Minor age-toning along paper margin. Text in Dutch, gothic script. Clamshell box in very good, binding in fair, interior in good to very good condition. About the publisher: Christophe Plantin (c. 1520-1589) was an influential Renaissance humanist, a prolific printer and prosperous entrepreneur, publishing more than 40 editions of emblem books. In contrast, his most important work is considered to be the "Biblia Regia" (King's Bible), also known as the Plantin Polyglot. In spite of clerical opposition, Plantin was encouraged by King Philip II of Spain, who sent him the learned Benito Arias Montano to lead the editorship. With Montano's zealous help, the work was finished in five years (1569-1573, 8 vols, folio). This work earned Plantin little profit, but resulted in Philip's granting him the privilege of printing all Roman Catholic liturgical books (missals, breviaries, etc.) for the states ruled by Philip, the title "Architypographus Regii," which he dutifully added to the title pages of Plantin Press books, and the unwanted duty of prototypo-graphus regius, obligating him to inspect and verify the skill and dogmatic adherence of other printers. Besides the Plantin Polyglot, Plantin published many other works of note, such as the "Dictionarium Tetraglotton" of 1562, which was a dictionary in Greek, Latin, French and Flemish, editions of St. Augustine and St. Jerome, the botanical works of Dodonaeus, Clusius and Lobelius, and the description of the Netherlands by Guicciardini. His editions of the Bible in Hebrew, Latin and Dutch, his Corpus juris, Latin and Greek classics, and many other works are renowned for their beautiful execution and accuracy. A skillful businessman, by 1575 his printing firm reckoned more than 20 presses and 73 workmen, plus various specialists who did job-work out of their homes. Though outwardly a faithful member of the Catholic Church, he appears to have used his resources to support several sects of Protestant heretics. It is now proven that many of their books, published without naming the printer, came from Plantin Press. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Praefectus Tyronum in Aula Turcica, Qui xex Christianias Parentibus Nati Sunt. "The Overseer of the Youth in The Turkish Court, That are Born of Christian Parents".Very rare first edition of an exceedingly rare hand-colored copy of an encyclopedic Trachtenbuch with 51 full-page woodcut portraits drawn by the prolific ?"Kleine Meister?" Jost Amman, whose Nuremberg workshop was one of the most celebrated of the 16th century. Amman?'s Habitus, ?"considered to be one of the best works on costumes published at that time?" (Borba), is unprecedented in the global scope of its presentation; it formed the model for such later works as Pietro Bertelli?'s Diversarum nationum habitus (Padua, 1589) and Cesare Vecellio?'s Habiti antichi e moderni (Venice, 1590)—which borrowed many of its plates (Taylor). Examples with contemporary color are of great rarity.Amman?'s parade of costumes commences with the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II and his heir-apparent, ?"Römischer König?" and Habsburg Archduke Rudolf II. Following a roughly geographical arrangement, the book presents the dress of Nuremberg, Augsburg, Meissen, Leipzig, Bohemia, Schlesien, etc., before proceeding to that of Iceland, Sweden, England, Holland and the Italian, Spanish and French duchies, etc. Considering its unusually large format and vivid, generously applied color, the work is literally an ?"atlas?" of costumes, analogous in scope and ambition to Schedel?'s Chronicle (also published in Nuremberg) or Ortelius?' Theatrum; like the Chronicle, whose audience included affluent armchair-travelers, it ?"collapsed physically experienced distance at the same time that it advertised the geographical variety of modes of dress it put into circulation?" (Burland). Nowhere is this purpose more evident than with the costumes of non-Europeans—from Ethiopian and Mauritanian plebeians to Persian satraps, Muscovite soldiers and a smattering of Turkish royalty—whose presence arguably marks the Habitus as the beginning of an ?"ethno-iconographic genre?" designed to inform educated readers about the actual habiti, the cultural characteristics, of a rapidly diversifying human race. This intent is most striking in three color-portraits of Brazil?'s Tupinamba Indians, the first depicting a man with a crown and belt of feathers, a knife, and a bow and arrow, beside a long-haired woman carrying a baby in a knotted sling. The woodcut is an adaptation of two from the Recueil de la diversité des habits (Paris, 1562; Antwerp, 1572) by Francois Descerpz, ?"one of the first likenesses of the Brazilian Indian?" (Borba). A third drawing shows a Tupi woman in a robe of feathers holding the tammaraca, a hollow gourd shaken to invoke the gods. German interest in Asia and the Americas as living, breathing Wunderkammern had increased dramatically during the first half of the 16th century, largely owing to Dürer?'s drawings of exotic creatures (including parrots, the vogue pet of Nuremberg merchants) produced in Antwerp in 1520. In 1529, moreover, after extensive travels throughout Spain and Portugal with the court of Charles V, the Augsburg medal-maker Christoph Weiditz had created a manuscript Trachtenbuch—?"one of the earliest attempts to compile a costume book?" (Levenson)—that included 11 drawings of Aztecs brought to Spain by Cortes in 1528. Recent scholarship suggests that, given his connections with the publisher Feyerabend and Nuremberg painter Sigmund Heldt, Amman would have been privy to these unpublished drawings—though why he expressly chose the Tupinamba to represent the multi-ethnic New World remains an intriguing mystery. The reputation and output of Swiss engraver Jost Amman (1539?-1591) arguably established him as the heir to Dürer. Born in Zurich, Amman relocated to Nuremberg in 1560, where he soon began undertaking commissions from Feyerabend and Nuremberg?'s Pfinzing family. His work includes hundreds of engravings, etchings and woodcuts for Bibles, histories, genealogies, and books on trade and construction, as well as dozens of painted portraits. Rubens, Rembrandt and Joshua Reynolds, among others, acknowledged his prodigious skill and lasting influence. OCLC: 1) NYPL, Brown, Buffalo/Erie, Huntington (3 of them complete but none in color), Brown/Hay Military owns only 19 selected plates. 2): Trinity. These figures are Engraved wood by Hans Wiegel after drawings by Jost Amman. Some examples had contemporary hand-coloring. (Colas).Sir (Charles) Robert Bignold (1892-1970) was Lord Mayor of Norwich 1926-1927. His famous library of colour-plate books was sold at Sotheby's London, November 15th and 16th, 1971. His Great-Great Grandfather, Sir Thomas Bignold (1761-1835) was the founder of the Norwich Union Insurance Company.Colas, 113; Brunet, III, 7; Graesse I, 104; Lipperheide 7 & 8; Rahir, 290; Hiler, p. 895.

Conteynyng many notable and straunge thinges, both hystoricall and naturall. Translated out of Latine into Engylshe, by Richarde Eden).

      London, Richard Jugge, 1577. - 4to. (4 [instead of 10]), 464 [instead of 466] ff. (wants the first 6 ff. of prelims, final 2 ff. of text and the 6 ff. of "special advices" and index, all supplied in facsimile). With historiated woodcut initials. Splendid modern red morocco, both covers richly gilt, gilt fillets to raised bands. Stored in custom-made cloth clamshell box with gilt spine title. The first English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous travels to Arabia, Persia, and India: the highly important and adventurous narrative containing the first recorded visit of a westerner to Mecca. All early editions of Varthema’s "Itinerario" are exceedingly rare (even the 2013 Hajj exhibition at the MIA, Doha, only featured the 1654 reprint; cf. below). - Varthema, a gentleman adventurer and soldier from Bologna, left Venice at the end of 1502. In 1503 he reached Alexandria and ascended the Nile to Cairo, continuing to Beirut, Tripoli, Aleppo and Damascus, where, adopting Islam and taking the name of Yunas, he joined a Mameluke escort of a Hajj caravan and began the pilgrimage to Mecca. Varthema was amazed by what he observed: "Truly I never saw so many people collected in one spot as during the twenty days I remained there", he begins, and arriving at the Great Mosque, continues, "it would not be possible to describe the sweetness and the fragrances which are smelt within this temple." Thanks to his knowledge of Arabic and Islam, Varthema was able to appreciate the local culture of the places he visited. Impressed and fascinated, he describes not only rites and rituals, but also social, geographical, and day-to-day details. "I determined, personally, and with my own eyes", he declares in the prefatory dedication, "to ascertain the situation of places, the qualities of peoples [.] of Egypt, Syria, Arabia Deserta and Felix, Persia, India, and Ethiopia, remembering well that the testimony of one eye-witness is worth more than ten hear-says." His good fortune did not continue unabated, however: after embarking at Jeddah and sailing to Aden, he was denounced as a Christian spy and imprisoned. He secured his release and proceeded on an extensive tour of southwest Arabia. Stopping in Sanaa and Zebid as well as a number of smaller cities, he describes the people, the markets and trade, the kind of fruits and animals that are plentiful in the vicinity, and any historical or cultural information deemed noteworthy. Returning to Aden, and after a brief stop in Ethiopia, he set sail for India. In addition to visiting Persia, Varthema explored the coasts of Malabar and Coromandel, including a stay at Calicut at the beginning of 1505. He also purports to have made extensive travels around the Malay peninsula and the Moluccas. Returning to Calicut in August 1505, he took employment with the Portuguese at Cochin and, in 1508, made his way back to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope. - First published in 1510, Varthema's account became an immediate bestseller. In addition to his fascinating account of Egypt, Syria, the Arabian Peninsula, and the holy Muslim cities, "Varthema brought into European literature an appreciation of the areas east of India [.] which it had previously not received from the sea-travelers and which confirmed by firsthand observations many of the statements made earlier by Marco Polo and the writers of antiquity" (Lach, I. i. 166). "Varthema was a real traveller. His reports on the social and political conditions of the various lands he visited are reliable as being gathered from personal contact with places and peoples. His account of the overland trade is of great value in that we are made to see it before it had begun to give way to the all-seas route. He even heard of a southern continent and of a region of intense cold and very short days, being the first European probably after Marco Polo to bring back the rumor of Terra Australis" (Cox I, 260). - Published as an extensive part of "The History of Travayle in the West and East Indies" - one of the first [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Opera Iacobi Cuiacii i.c. quae de iure fecit in hunc diem, ab ipso auctore disposita et recognita, & aucta libro singulari Consultationum, & libr. XV. XVI. XVII. Obseruationum

      Paris: Apud Sebastianum Niuellium, 1577. FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. Large folio: 3 volumes in one. 4 ff., 332 pp; 6 ff., 390 pp; 228 pp. BOUND IN CONTEMPORARY FRENCH CALF, richly blind-tooled, evidence of two pair of ties (binding worn, spine defective; damp staining to lower margins throughout). Provenance: early blind-stamps of the now-defunct Theological Institute of Connecticut FIRST EDITION of the collected works of Cujas, "le fondateur de l'etude moderne du droit" (NBG), a "beautiful and exact [edition] now very scarce" of his monumental reappraisal of Roman Law (1911 Enc. Brit); the only edition published in his lifetime. Scarce in any condition; our copy, which is preserved in a contemporary French binding, is the only one currently on the market. * Cujas was a key figure in the establishment of modern jurisprudence, and the founder, with Alciat, of Renaissance legal studies. He was "le veritable fondateur de l'ecole historique du droit" (M. Lerminier, Introduction Generale a l'Histoire du Droit, Paris 1829, pp. 43-46). * By his exegesis of Latin texts, Cujas sought to place the Roman law in its historical context. Unlike previous scholars, he was relatively unconcerned with the practical applications of Roman law and wished primarily to study the ancient texts in their relation to history and literature. He is often considered the founder of the historical school of jurisprudence. Much of his critical effort was directed toward reconstructing in the original form the excerpts from eminent Roman jurists quoted in the Corpus Juris Civilis. * Cujas has long been considered the oracle of jurisconsults: few penetrated deeper into the understanding and explanation of the Roman laws, and fewer had a better command of the Latin language. His surpassing merit as a jurisconsult consisted in the fact that he turned from the ignorant commentators on Roman law to the Roman law itself. He consulted a very large number of manuscripts, of which he had collected more than 500 in his own library; In jurisprudence his study was far from being devoted solely to Justinian; he recovered and gave to the world a part of the Theodosian Code, with explanations; and he procured the manuscript of the Basilica, a Greek abridgment of Justinian, afterwards published by Fabrot. He also composed a commentary on the Consuetudines Feudorum, and on some books of the Decretals. In the Paratitla, or summaries which he made of the Digest, and particularly of the Code of Justinian, he condensed into short axioms the elementary principles of law, and gave definitions remarkable for their admirable clearness and precision. * Jacques Cujas was born in Toulouse in 1520. From modest beginnings, Cujas studied law in his hometown with Arnaud du Ferrier, having earned a solid reputation as a scholar of Justinian. In 1554 he was appointed professor of law at Cahors; he then went to Bourges in 1555. After two visits to Valencia, and then to Paris, in 1576, he returned to Bourges. The religious wars drove him out. He was called by the king to Paris, and permission was granted him by the parlement to lecture on civil law in the university there. A year later, he finally took up residence at Bourges, where he remained till his death in 1590, in spite of a handsome offer made him by pope Gregory XIII in 1584 to attract him to Bologna. * CONTENTS: Vol. I: Notae ad libros IIII Institutionum Dn. Justiniani. Vol. II: Paratitla in libros L Digestorum seu Pandectarum. Commentaria in Pandectarum. Vol. III: Ad Africanum tractatus IX. * This copy, like that of George Washington University, Berkeley Law Library, Tulane Law Library, and Mount Angel Abbey, does not contain Vols. IV (Commentarii ad tres postremos libros codicis Dn. Justiniani) and V (Observationum et emendationum libri XVII). * REFERENCES: Adams C3028 (2 copies only, both lacking volume IV-V). Not in Brunet, or Graesse; cf. Printing and the Mind of Man 4.

        M. ACCIUS PLAUTUS EX FIDE, ATQUE AUCTORITATE COMPLURIUM LIBRORUM MANUSCRIPTORUM OPERA DIONYS. LAMBINI MONSTROLIENSIS EMENDATUS: AB EODEMQUE COMMENTARIIS EXPLICATUS. Adiecta sunt Plautina loca ex antiquis grammaticis collecta: & ex commentarium antiquarum lectionum Iusti Lipsij multorum Plauti locorum illustrationes & emendationes.

      Ex Officina Gulielmi Hetman, Coloniae 1577 - "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 e Venezia, ove tradusse dal greco in latino l'"Etica Nicomachea" di Aristotele. Tradusse poi Orazio, Lucrezio, Cicerone, Cornelio nepote e, appunto, Plauto. La prima edizione a stampa delle commedie plautiane risale al 1472, mentre la più diffusa, prima di quella del Lambino, fu quella del Camerarius (1552). 2050 gr. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
