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.

        Mechanicorum Liber.

      Pesaro H. Concordia 1577. - Folio [29.4 x 19.6 cm], (8) ff. (the last blank), 130, (1) f. [colophon], 1 integral blank, with numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in text. Old ownership stamp "Darquier" neatly stenciled on title (the Toulousain astronomer Antoine Darquier de Pellepoix 1718-1802?) Bound in 18th century vellum over paste boards, covers a bit soiled and abraded. Inconsequential soiling and a little spotting to title; even toning to some quires, but generally a fresh and appealing copy. Rare first edition of the author’s first work, generally regarded as the most important treatise on mechanics since Archimedes and a critical influence on Galileo. The work is notable for its commitment to establishing mechanics on a rigorously mathematical basis, for its powerful argument that mechanics and statics are separate sciences and for its insistence that mechanics should not consider abstract and/or abstruse entities but the activity of machines. Stillman Drake particularly emphasizes the importance of the section on pulleys, where Monte reduces them (as he does most other simple machines) to a lever. As such, the work has technological implications for navigation, manufacture, the plastic arts and medicine (f. 245)."From the time of its publication in 1577. [it was] the most authoritative treatise on statics to emerge since antiquity, and it remained pre-eminent until the appearance of Galileo’s Two New Sciences in 1638. It marks the high point of the Archimedean revival of the Renaissance" (Rose, Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 222).Monte (1545-1607) studied mathematics at Padua and subsequently at Urbino, where he studied with Commandino, editing and publishing the latter’s translation of Pappus. He conducted an extensive scientific correspondence with Galileo, securing for the Florentine his chairs at Pisa and later at Padua.* Adams U-7; Riccardi II.178; P.L.

        HISTORIA DELL'INDIE ORIENTALI, SCOPERTE, & CONQUISTATE DA' PORTOGHESI, DI COMMISSIONE DELL'INUITTISSIMO RE DON MANUELLO, DI GLORIOSA MEMORIA.

      Venice: Giordano Ziletti, . 1577 - Two volumes. [17],518,[1]; [13],365 leaves. Contemporary vellum, manuscript title on spines. Front joint of first volume cracked, other joints worn. Early bookplate on front pastedowns. Internally remarkably clean. A beautiful copy. Lopes de Castanheda is considered one of the definitive chroniclers of Portuguese activity in Asia. With the majority of the narrative focused on Persia, Arabia, China, and Molucca, this work is enhanced by the inclusion of details regarding the Portuguese exploration of Brazil. That Book One of the present work was first translated into French by Nicolas de Grouchy, Montaigne's instructor at the Collège de Guyenne, shows that it had a least a partial impact on Montaigne's understanding of the New World, shedding some light on some of the source material for his numerous ESSAYS. Most of the .HISTOIRE. is devoted to the great Portuguese thrust into Asia in the early 16th century, chronicling their epic expansion to India, the East Indies, and China between 1497 and 1525. Castanheda himself spent some two decades in the Portuguese colonies in the East, and so was well equipped to write this account. It is one of the primary sources for the early Portuguese trading empire, a model that the British were beginning to emulate at the time of publication. Penrose says of the author: ".He wrote an impartial book of outspoken sincerity which was the fruit of years of residence in the East." However, this work is equally important for its American content, being the first to describe in detail the voyage of Cabral and his discovery of Brazil in 1500, while on his way out to the East Indies. Cabral's landing is the first recorded there, recounted in chapters 29-31 of the present work. The present work was translated from the author's HISTORIA DO DESCOBRIMENTO E CONQUISTA DA INDIA PELOS PORTUGUEZES, published between 1551 and 1561. It was translated by Alfonso Ulloa, translator of Fernando Columbus' biography of his father, Christopher Columbus. A beautiful set. SABIN 11389. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 577/29. EUROPE INFORMED, pp.55-58.

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? Y nombre de las otras licencias han sacado y sacan mucha mayor cantidad de la que en virtud dellos podrían sacar ansi su yo como de otros y como quiera que nos en las dichas cedulas y licencias paraescuzas de otro fraude desorden les aviamos mandado y ordenado las diligencias que habían de haber o haller aquello no se ha guardado mi guarda ni aun por lo que se ha visto por experiencia ha sido bastante prevenir y obiar los otros fraudes y por que en tal manera es nuestra voluntad y queremos que las otras personas que de nos tienen las otras cedulas y licencias usen dellas que juntamente con esto se provea en tal forma que ellos no puedan exceder ni excedan de lo contenido en las otras cedulas y licencias y se escusen los fraudes y cautelas que hasta aquí ha avido y para que esto se pueda mejor haffer y se cumpla lo que con ellas esta tratado y se escuse el otro daño por la presente mandamos: a todas y quales quiera personas asi naturales como extranjeras destos reynos que tuvieron de nos las otras licencia y en curo poder aquellas estuvieren aunque sean das?

Flecklein rechts neben der Figur, nahezu auf die Umfassungslinie geschnitten. Literatur: Nicht bei Nagler und Bartsch.. Die Kupferstecherin Diana Scultori lernte wie ihr Bruder A. Scultori (um 1530-1585) bei ihrem Vater, dem Bildhauer und Kupferstecher G.B. Scultori (gen. Mantovano). Neben diesem wurde sie vor allem beinflußt von G. Romano (1499-1546), dessen Schülerin sie möglicherweise auch war. In erster Ehe seit 1575 mit dem Architekten F. Capriani da Volterra (um 1530-1594) verheiratet, ging das Paar nach Rom. Hier erhielt sie bald darauf von Papst Gregor XIII. die Erlaubnis, ihre Arbeiten unter ihrem eigenen Namen zu verkaufen - ein einzigartiges Privileg für eine Frau dieser Zeit - und hatte großen Erfolg, nicht zuletzt weil sie sich zur hervorragenden Vermarkterin ihrer eigenen Drucke entwickelte. Vasari erwähnte sie in seiner zweiten Ausgabe "Le vite de' piu eccellenti architetti, pittori, et scultori italiani, da Cimabue insino a' tempi nostri" von 1568. Nach dem Tod ihres Mannes 1594 heiratete sie den Architekten Giulio Pelosi (1566 - um 1644).
