MIZAULD, Antoine
1577. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Antonio Mizauld was 16th-century French astronomer known for his treatises and studies on astronomy, astrology, and the effects of the heavens on human behavior. Thought to be his final book Mizauld published, 'Paradoxa Rerum Coeli' discusses the attributes of God in conjunction with seeking to provide answers to questions (or paradoxes) surrounding the unknown world, the movement of planets, and the behavior of celestial bodies. For instance; the first paradox discussed is Mizlaud describing how celestial bodies, such as the planets and stars give light to shine on their own. Mizauld also stated in this and other works that the moon, in combination with the Sun, and important repercussions for human procreation. He claims that in addition to effecting Animalia, the moon prepared female genitalia for generation and increased womanly characteristics in men and that constellations increased fertility! (Crawford, p.105). [Attributes: First Edition]

Martin Luther
You are bidding on an extremely rare Lutheran book of great importance to the Protestant Reformation: A Commentarie of M. Doctor Martin Luther vpon the Epistle of S. Paul to the Galathians: first collected and gathered vvord by vvord out of his preaching, & novv out of Latine faithfully translated into English for the vnlearned. VVherein is set foorth most excellently the glorious riches of Gods grace... [London] : Diligently reuised, corrected, and nevvly imprinted againe by Thomas Vautroullier dvvelling vvithin the Blacke friers by Ludgate. Cum priuilegio, 1577. [a translation of: In Epistolam Sancti Pauli ad Galatas Commentarius] Celebrating the 500th anniversary of the posting of the Ninety-Five Theses, we offer one of the very earliest editions of Luther published in England. In this case, an early modern English language edition printed in black letter, a Germanic looking font that some people refer to as 'gothic' (though that's technically a misnomer). This is the second edition that came out two years after the first printing. I've researched this particular edition for a few enjoyable hours and I've found very few worldcat holdings, which means this is a genuinely scarce book. I could not locate any 16th Century editions currently for sale on the international market. Like the Huntington Library copy from which electronic copies have been made, this one lacks the 'table' described on the title page. The actual text is complete. The 3/4 red leather binding is approximately 200 years old. I'll describe the overall condition in a moment, but first I want to draw your … [Click Below for Full Description]

Catullus; Tibullus; Propertius | Joseph Scaliger (Editor)
Lvtetiae [Paris]: Apud Mamertum Patissonium, in officina Rob. Stephani, 1577. Full Leather. Very Good binding. 16mo. A First Edition copy of Joseph Scaliger's controversial nova edition of Catullus, Tibullus, and Propertius. According to Jacob Bernays "this was Scaliger's most methodical edition, the one which marked his complete triumph over the vanity and incompetence of Italian correctors... Timpanaro has argued that this edition of Catullus is the most remarkable anticipation of Lachmann's method before the eighteenth century." One volume, printed in two parts, with separate title page, pagination, and register; woodcut engraved vignettes on the title pages. [16], 274, [2], 252, [16] pp. Final leaf blank; E7 and S2 also blanks, all present. Spot of staining affecting the fore edge of about the last thirty pages. Attractive full calf, with raised bands; lettering and decoration stamped in gilt in compartments. Joints cracked but holding tight. Very Good. (Grafton, Anthony T. "Joseph Scaliger's Edition of Catullus (1577) and the Traditions of Textual Criticism in the Renaissance." Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, vol. 38, 1975, pp. 155-181. JSTOR, JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/750952. ). Very Good binding.

Lyon, Jean de Tournes, 1577 ; in-16 ; plein veau havane, dos à nerfs orné de fleurons et titre dorés, grand fer décoratif doré ovale au centre des plats dans un encadrement de filet doré (reliure de l'époque) ; 543 pp., (1) p. (Marque Prisme d) (signatures : a-z 8 ; A-L 8). Bas du dos et haut du plat restaurés dans l'esprit de la Bibliothèque Nationale ; bon exemplaire dans l'ensemble. Imprimée sur un beau vergé assez fin, cette édition est, avec la première de 1549, la plus belle des cinq éditions de Jamblique données par Jean de Tournes. Philosophe grec neo-platonicien, né à Chalcis (seconde moitié du IIIe siècle - circa 333), adepte des doctrines de Platon et Pythagore, il est un des principaux fondateurs de l'ecclectisme alexandrin, qui cherchait à s'opposer au Christianisme. Ses recherches le menèrent à l'étude des religions et philosophies chaldéennes et égyptiennes, ce qui le conduisit à faire grands cas des mystères et des initiations (Ferguson, 305).

Colophon: "Londini, Ex typographia Henrici Middletoni, 1577."

Mexican Mining]
[Mexico, 1577. [235] leaves. Contains four rough maps showing four mine sites in Taxco. Folio. Modern full vellum with ties. Some staining. Worming, only occasionally affecting text. Very good. In three-quarter morocco and cloth clamshell box. While the conquistadores came to Mexico largely in hope of finding vast mineral wealth, they were for the most part disappointed in the first two decades after the Conquest. It was not until the early 1540s that a great lode of silver was developed in Mexico, when a great bonanza was discovered by Don Luis Castilla at Taxco, near Mexico City. Little has been known previously of Castilla's career. He came to Mexico from Spain in 1530. In 1536 there is a record of an oath of allegiance by him to Nuno de Guzman. He became Alcalde Mayor of Taxco in 1542, apparently having made his great strike there several years earlier. The first record of mining at Taxco is a grant of Hernan Cortes, the conqueror of Mexico, to his sons, giving them the right to mine there. Castilla was related to Cortes through the latter's second wife, and it is probable that this is how he became involved in Taxco. The wealth of the mine Castilla developed was enormous. Some idea of its magnitude can be had from the description of Castilla's household given by Dorantes de Carranza: "He maintained a large household, because he was a great lord with such grandness, many horses, servants, arms, persons and retinue, that it was as brilliant as a household of any scale. And such were the riches that he took from the mine at Taxco, that he could make all this sho … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

PLAUTUS, M. ACCIUS. - [THE EXCELLENT LAMBINUS-EDITION]
Lugduni (Lyon), Expensis Gulielmi Hertman, 1577. Folio. Nice later (ab. 1800) half calf w. gilt title-label to back. Corners a bit worn. Title-page repaired from verso, no loss. Marginal annotations in cont. hand, some shaved. A nice copy w. only occasional minor brownspotting and a damp stain to top of first four, and a few later, leaves, not affecting text. Also a damp stain to lower margin of about 30 leaves, mostly towards end, barely affecting text. Last leaf soiled and w. repair to bottom, not affecting text. Owner's inscription to title-page stating that Stephanus Johannes from Copenhagen, Denmark, bought the book in Wittenberg in June 1622, inscription shaved. (8), 792 pp., ff. (28, -Index). ¶ The rare counterfeit-edition of the excellent Lambinus-edition of Plautus' works, which originally appeared in 1576. A counterfeit-edition also appeared in Cologne in 1577, and they are both of as great value to Plautus-scholarship as the 1576-edition, all three being of about equal scarcity.The work is especially esteemed for its commentaries, emendations and notes by Lambinus. "The celebrity of Lambinus in almost every classical work which he edited, has already been frequently noticed. Of this admirable edition, Lambinus lived to finish only the first twelve comedies; but his colleague, Helius, professor of Greek, completed the work, partly by transcribing what remained in Lambinus's hand-writing on the subsequent comedies, and partly by the insertion of his own notes, and emendations of the text. In forming the edition, many MSS. And ancient publications were consulted. "I … [Click Below for Full Description]

Godefroy, Henri.
1577. 8vo. (32), 382, (2) pp. Fine printer's mark on title and several decorated initials. Contemporary limp vellum, spine with traces of former calf reinforcement. First and only edition. A rare treatise against usury written "for all Christians and particularly for the people of Paris". The author launches a vehement attack on luxury in general and on the taking of interest as one of the greatest of all sins, forbidden by all laws, and against the law of nature. He discusses the prohibitions by Mosaic law, the Prophets, Jesus Christ, the Apostles, canon law and civil law and quotes from the proclamations against usury and usurers issued by the Paris parliament in 1565, by Charles IX in 1567 and by Henry III in 1577. The second part of the book provides more detailed information about the various types of usury, how to approach them, how to treat usurers, etc. As an example of God's hatred of luxury and usury, the author reminds the reader of the dreadful fate of the city of Antwerp, "one of the richest and most prosperous cities in all Christianity", which was sacked in the "Spanish Fury" only a year before the publication of this book, causing the end of Antwerp's prosperity. Godefroy calls himself "Parisien, profez en l'Abbaye S. Denis en France, & docteur en la faculté de Theologie à Paris". - Binding worn, both covers nearly detached. Upper margin of first and last leaves stained, some leaves spotted. Old ownership to title-page (dated 1681); additional early annotations to verso of final leaf. Very rare. OCLC 492381754.

[Mexican Mining]
[Mexico, 1577. [235] leaves. Contains four rough maps showing four mine sites in Taxco. Folio. Modern full vellum with ties. Some staining. Worming, only occasionally affecting text. Very good. In three-quarter morocco and cloth clamshell box. While the conquistadores came to Mexico largely in hope of finding vast mineral wealth, they were for the most part disappointed in the first two decades after the Conquest. It was not until the early 1540s that a great lode of silver was developed in Mexico, when a great bonanza was discovered by Don Luis Castilla at Taxco, near Mexico City. Little has been known previously of Castilla's career. He came to Mexico from Spain in 1530. In 1536 there is a record of an oath of allegiance by him to Nuno de Guzman. He became Alcalde Mayor of Taxco in 1542, apparently having made his great strike there several years earlier. The first record of mining at Taxco is a grant of Hernan Cortes, the conqueror of Mexico, to his sons, giving them the right to mine there. Castilla was related to Cortes through the latter's second wife, and it is probable that this is how he became involved in Taxco. The wealth of the mine Castilla developed was enormous. Some idea of its magnitude can be had from the description of Castilla's household given by Dorantes de Carranza: "He maintained a large household, because he was a great lord with such grandness, many horses, servants, arms, persons and retinue, that it was as brilliant as a household of any scale. And such were the riches that he took from the mine at Taxco, that he could make all this sho … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Mexican Mining]
[Mexico, 1577. [235] leaves. Contains four rough maps showing four mine sites in Taxco. Folio. Modern full vellum with ties. Some staining. Worming, only occasionally affecting text. Very good. In three-quarter morocco and cloth clamshell box. While the conquistadores came to Mexico largely in hope of finding vast mineral wealth, they were for the most part disappointed in the first two decades after the Conquest. It was not until the early 1540s that a great lode of silver was developed in Mexico, when a great bonanza was discovered by Don Luis Castilla at Taxco, near Mexico City. Little has been known previously of Castilla's career. He came to Mexico from Spain in 1530. In 1536 there is a record of an oath of allegiance by him to Nuno de Guzman. He became Alcalde Mayor of Taxco in 1542, apparently having made his great strike there several years earlier. The first record of mining at Taxco is a grant of Hernan Cortes, the conqueror of Mexico, to his sons, giving them the right to mine there. Castilla was related to Cortes through the latter's second wife, and it is probable that this is how he became involved in Taxco. The wealth of the mine Castilla developed was enormous. Some idea of its magnitude can be had from the description of Castilla's household given by Dorantes de Carranza: "He maintained a large household, because he was a great lord with such grandness, many horses, servants, arms, persons and retinue, that it was as brilliant as a household of any scale. And such were the riches that he took from the mine at Taxco, that he could make all this sho … [Click Below for Full Description]

BODIN, Jean.
Paris: Jacques de Puys, 1577. Folio (330 x 213 mm). Later 18th-century sheep over patterned blue paper boards, skilfully rebacked preserving the original spine with red calf label, compartments elaborately ruled and decorated in gilt, vellum corners. 2 ownership inscriptions to title page and a few annotations to the text. Extremities worn and boards scuffed, corners bumped, hinges cracked but firm, a little worm damage to endpapers, infrequent dampstain and spotting to contents with a few small punctures to lower margins, overall a very good copy. Woodcut title page device, headpieces, and initials. Third edition (the second authorised) of Bodin's masterpiece, which "had an immense influence all over Europe. This is a re-setting of the original edition of 1576, with a pagination jump from 519 to 552 and with 54 terminal pages of contents. The work is, in effect, the first modern attempt to create a complete system of political science. Its basis was the Politics of Aristotle, and it was through Bodin that Aristotle's work came to exercise the influence on modern political thinking which has made him the father of modern democracy. Bodin was not content merely to reproduce his master, however; he added considerably from his own experience. Although like most sixteenth-century writers he approved of absolute government, he demanded its control by constitutional laws, in which respect he foreshadowed the development during the seventeenth century of the idea of the 'social contract'. Thus Bodin was the first to set out clearly the argument round which most political discussio … [Click Below for Full Description]
