Cornelis CORT (Hoorn, nr Alkmaar, 1533 - Roma, prima del 22 Aprile 1578)
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. The New Hollstein, II, p. 145, 113 II/IV; TIB 52, 131; Witcombe, Print Publishing in Sixteenth - Century Rome, p. 343, 5.37. 378 250

Horatius Flaccus Quintus

Volume in folio legato in pergamena (tracce di manoscritto), sguardie, frontespizio con marca silografica dello stampatore, 5 carte, 313 pp., 9 carte d'indici, frontespizio, 383 pp., 12 carte d'indici, al verso dell'ultima ripetuta la marca dello stampatore. Magnifica edizione delle opere d'Orazio col commento di quello che è definito "uno dei più eccellenti commentatori di classici ... diede nuova ed inusuale forza alla critica sull'opera oraziane, universalmente applaudito" Importante e raro, il volume raccoglie i due tomi dell'edizione. Il primo di essi presenta traccia di gora per tutto il corpo dell'opera, particolarmente notanda nelle prime 40 carte per poi attenuarsi notevolmente tanto che nel secondo tomo a malapena si nota. Fatta salva questa segnalazione, l'opera è in più che buono stato, in edizione assai scarsamente reperibile, apprezzata e ricercata. Notevole

DANTE
Corbon Jean, 1577. in - 8 (178x107 mm), pp. (8), 82, (12), 56, (2). Leg. pergamena floscia coeva (piccolo restauro al dorso) in elegante astuccio m.pelle. Carattere tondo e corsivo, di vari corpi, qualche testatina, numerose iniziali ornate. Edizione originale del testo latino dantesco, che venne riscoperto nel 1506; in base a un manoscritto della famiglia Trivulzio, oggi ancora conservato a Milano, ne venne tratto il volgarizzamento da parte del Trissino (Vicenza, Tolomeo Ianiculo da Bressa, 1529). Fu invece da un codice Jacopo Corbinelli ? (1535 - 1590 ca.), esule fiorentino dal 1568 a Parigi, invitato da Caterina de' Medici a educare il figlio Enrico III d'Angiò ? a pubblicare l'originale latino, servendosi di un codice ora a Grenoble. L'opera non suscitò un grande dibattito nemmeno per tutto il Seicento e si dovette attendere fino al 1729 per la seconda edizione, a cura di Scipione Maffei; è da ricordare peraltro la scarsa fortuna in quel periodo della Commedia, nel Seicento pubblicata tre sole volte, mentre curioso è il parallelo del De Vulgari con la Vita nova, che vide la luce soltanto l'anno precedente (Firenze 1576), per ricomparire nel 1723. L'opera doveva essere in 4 libri, ma rimase incompiuta: il primo libro in 19 capitoli dimostra la nobiltà del volgare, non inferiore al latino, considerato una lingua artificiale; Dante analizza poi i dialetti italiani, 7 a ovest e 7 ad est degli Appennini, affermando che il toscano si avvicina alla sua idea di volgare illustre. Il secondo libro è un trattato di retorica, dove illustra gli usi possibili del volgare, che deve e … [Click Below for Full Description]

Varthema, Lodovico di, Pietro Martire d'Anghiera and others].
London, Richard Jugge, 1577. - [10], 466, [6] ll. Narrow 4to (19 x 13.5 cm). With a woodcut celestial map of the South Polar sky in the text, dozens of decorated and mostly pictorial initials plus a few repeats (3 series?, but the main series sometimes has 3 different initials for the same letter of the alphabet). Set in textura types with extensive use of roman and italic. With 14 leaves in a 19th-century facsimile. Gold- and blind-tooled maroon morocco (ca. 1860?), sewn on 3 double cords, in allusive style, each board with a frame of arabesque ornament, with an oval centrepiece containing a 4-lobed, square endless knot. In a modern clam-shell box. First English edition of Ludovico di Varthema's famous account of travels to Arabia, Syria, Persia, Ethiopia, India and the East Indies: a highly important and adventurous narrative including his 1503 visit to Mecca and Medina, the first recorded visit of a European (probably of any non-Muslim) to the Islamic holy cities. "Varthema's Itinerario, first published in 1510, had an enormous impact at the time, and in some respects determined the course of European expansion towards the Orient" (Howgego). It is here combined with various other travel accounts, including some taken from a collection by d'Anghiera translated into English in 1555 as The decades of the newe worlde or West India. - Ludovico di Varthema or Barthema (ca. 1468-1517) sailed from Venice to Egypt in 1502 and travelled through Alexandria, Beirut, Tripoli and Aleppo, arriving in Damascus in April 1503.

Ascham, Roger
Londini: Pro Francisco Coldocko, 1577. 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). 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.

Speckled calf rebacked, red leather label, bookplate of Earl Fitzwilliam at his Milton Hall, Peterborough, library. Second edition enlarged (first printed in 1576), a very nice copy of the first history of Switzerland, which was translated in the same year into German and French and was for many decades the standard text on the subject. Cromwell is said to have studied the work extensively as a political guidebook. Copies seldom appear for sale.

Show through from wax seal on back, scattered foxing spots, else very good. 3,800 $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 por … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eusebius, of Caesarea, Bishop of Caesarea.
Early Church history, especially the history of the Greek Church, was a major interest among clergy and scholars in early 17th century England, as this impressive item witnesses. Eusebius (ca. 260-340), bishop of Caesarea, is the best known of the early Church's historians. He lived through many of the important episodes he relates in the Ecclesiastical History; for example he was an eyewitness to the persecution of Christians under Diocletian, and he was present at the first ecumenical council at Nicaea. Here, he appears with Socrates (ca. 380-450) -- the one who was a lawyer in Constantinople, hence known as "Scholasticus," the Greek term for lawyer -- who had compiled his history as a continuation of Eusebius's work, and with Evagrius (ca. 536-600), also called "Scholasticus," who compiled his history to augment the works of Eusebius and Socrates together, beginning with the Council of Ephesus (431) and continuing to 594.The first edition of Hanmer's translations of these histories was printed in 1577. This fourth edition is printed in English black-letter gothic with some roman and italic and ample shouldernotes; it is decorated with the Fielding "Anchora Spei" woodcut device on the title-page and a good scattering of handsome xylographic initials and xylographic and typographic headpieces. Appended at the end is a very lengthy chronology divided into columns, comparing events in the history of the early Church.Provenance: Front fly-leaf with inked ownership inscription of I.

Lopes de Castanheda, Fernão
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 HISTORIA... 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Guidi. Ubald[i]’, with old paper label at foot of spine and shelf-mark ‘I.B.I.G.’, bookplate removed from front pastedown at one time and covered with old paper. First edition, and a prime document relating to Spain’s first academy of science. The Mechanicorum is the most important treatise on mechanics since Archimedes and a work which exerted considerable influence on Guidobaldo’s friend and disciple Galileo. This copy has intriguing contemporary annotations related to the Real Academia de Matemáticas de Madrid, Spain’s first academy of sciences: the extensive marginalia and corrections to text and diagrams represent the teaching text of the Academy’s Professor of Mathematics, Julio Cesar Ferrufino (ca 1535-1604), written in a Spanish hand (see below). Stillman Drake, in his extensive discussion of this work, writes that ‘his Mechanics was the first truly systematic attempt at a rigorous treatment of the field, and it paved the way for Galileo’s s … [Click Below for Full Description]
