TOSCANO, Giovanni Matteo (ca. 1500-1580)
Paris, Fédéric Morel 0. In 8vo; legatura di fine Seicento in marocchino rosso, piatti con filettatura a secco, dorso a cinque nervi con tassello verde, tagli dorati, risguardi in carta marmorizzata (cerniere deboli, piccolo danno alla parte inferiore del dorso); pp. (16), 128. Leggere bruniture, ma ottima copia.RARA PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo catalogo di uomini e donne che in Italia dal Trecento al Cinquecento si sono distinti in tutte le più importanti discipline del sapere. Il Peplus comprende quattro libri e procede in ordine cronologico. Il libro I si apre con Dante; il IV si conclude con Giovanni Carga. Benché l'opera contenga personalità distintesi nelle più diverse discipline, gli uomini di lettere e i loro protettori la fanno da padrone: il libro I, ad esempio, oltre a Dante, presenta infatti tra gli altri Petrarca, Boccaccio, Valla, Platina, Poliziano, Landino, ma anche Lorenzo e Giovanni de' Medici; nel libro II figurano vicini Aldo Manuzio e Alberto Pio. Delle duecento biografie complessive, quelle di autori cinquecenteschi sono le più numerose. Due sole le donne: Vittoria Colonna e Veronica Gambara. Ogni voce comprende un epigramma e un breve testo in prosa che descrive brevemente i meriti della persona citata. Enfin, le dernier volume publié par Toscano sera un petit livre de renseignements bio-bibliographiques (en vers et prose), sur les auteurs savants de l'Italie - son Peplus Italiae de 1578, publié, encore une fois chez Fédéric Morel à Paris et encore une fois sous l'égide de Dorat et de son approbation liminaire, mais dédié cette fois-ci, d'après ce qu'on li … [Click Below for Full Description]

NAGEREL (Jean).
2 parties reliées en un vol. in-8 de (8)ff. n. ch., 1 planche dépliante, 206 feuillets, (2)ff. n. ch. pour la table et (72) feuillets n. ch. pour le second texte. Rel. plein veau du XIXeme, dos à nerfs orné de fleurons doré, p. de titre, datde dorée en pied, doubles filets à froid encadrant les plats, tr. rouges. (ors des dos en partie estompés, qqs. rousseurs et brunissures éparses). Quatrième édition de cette version des Chroniques de Normandie, d'abord publiées en 1578, puis réimprimée à l'identique en 1581 et 1589, toujours avec l'adjonction de la deuxième partie. Notre exemplaire est bien complet de la très rare carte dépliante représentant « Le Pourtraict de la ville de Rouen », mais il manque la carte de Normandie. Comme l'indique Frère (I, 242) ces plans « font souvent défaut dans les exemplaires ». On ignore quel est l'auteur et quelle est la date de la composition de la Chronique de Normandie dont il existe de nombreux manuscrits, mais tous procèdent d'un même type qu'on suppose être le Roman de Rou. Le second texte renferme entre autres le procès de la Pucelle, l'entrée de Charles IX à Rouen, le lict de justice tenu par Charles IX en sa cour de Parlement de Rouen. Le « Livre de la Pucelle », (que l'on trouve ici aux feuillets Bb2-Cc7) constitue l'une des premières histoires imprimées de Jeanne d'Arc. (Frère, Manuel du Bibliographe Normand, I, 242-243).

Etwas späterer dekorativer Halblederbd. auf 6 Bünden mit Rückenvergoldung und Rückenschild. Prächtiger zweispaltiger Druck der "Opera omnia" des Aristoteles, "einem der großen klassischen Philosophen, dem Meister sämtlicher Zweige des antiken Wissens, (dessen) Methodik zudem noch immer allem modernen Denken zugrunde liegt" (PMM 104). - Hoffmann I, 300; Index Aureliensis 108.629; vgl. BM French Books 24 und Adams A 1750 (beide nur Ausgabe 1581). - "In der Schule des Aristoteles entsteht der medizinischen Wissenschaft ein neues Zentrum. Die mit ihr verbundene große Bibliothek, die erste, die die abendländische Welt gesehen hat, das Vorbild der später berühmt gewordenen Büchereien von Alexandrien und Peramon, barg unter ihren Schätzen auch zahlreiche hippokratische Schriften. Durch Aristoteles und seine Schule wurde die Heilkunde viel nachhaltiger als durch die Philosophie Platons beeinflußt. Man kann die Wirkung dieses Universalgenies kaum überschätzen. Sie ist in der Medizin noch weit bis in die Neuzeit zu erkennen. Es gibt fast kein Gebiet, das in seinem gewaltigen Schrifttum nicht irgend einmal berührt wurde, von der Anatomie, der Entwicklungsgeschichte und Vererbungslehre angefangen bis zu allen Spezialfächern der praktischen Medizin, Pharmakologie, Krankheitsprobleme, Hygiene und öffentlichen Gesundheitsfürsorge" (Diepgen I, 91 ff.).

Benzoni, Girolamo
Geneva: Eustatium Vignon, 1578. [32],480,[12]pp. Later limp vellum, later ink title on spine, marbled foredges. Covers slightly bowed. Unobtrusive contemporary ink signature on titlepage, very occasional contemporary manuscript annotations, trimmed closely at top margin, not affecting text, moderate tanning. A good copy. First Latin edition of Benzoni's important early account of the New World, translated from the first edition printed in Italian in 1565. Benzoni's history is the first significant work on the Americas based on firsthand observations by a non-Spaniard, and was one of the most widely disseminated texts of its day. This edition also includes the Latin translation of Nicolas Le Chailleux's DISCOURS DE L'HISTOIRE DE LA FLORIDE, first published in Dieppe in 1565, an account of the French expedition to Florida in the mid-16th century. Born in Milan, Benzoni spent fourteen years travelling through the Americas, beginning in 1541. He was familiar with the Antilles, Guatemala, and the west coast of South America, and provides descriptions of these regions, as well as a history of the New World from the arrival of Columbus to the conquest of Peru. The work is also notable for containing an early account of the use of tobacco. Engaged in commerce, Benzoni quickly developed an intense enmity for the Spanish and their administration, and he treats them quite unfavorably in his text. He denounces the Spanish for their treatment of the Indians - in contrast, a good portion of the text describes Indian life before it became corrupted by European contact - and the aut … [Click Below for Full Description]

Titlepage lightly soiled, contemporary inscriptions, small portion of top corner torn away on first two leaves. Top edge trimmed closely, affecting running title and page numbers in some leaves. Internally fresh and clean. Very good. First Latin edition of Benzoni's important early account of the New World, translated from the first edition printed in Italian in 1565.

SAXTON, Christopher - WEB, William
London: (1578-[1645]). 355 x 465 mm. Uncoloured, light age toning to the margins, a centrefold split in the lower margin and a short tear, again in the lower margin, both repaired with old paper, both short of the image, otherwise a very good example.; Evans and Lawrence speculate that the surveying of Pembroke was one of the very last counties undertaken. The majority of the Welsh counties were surveyed in 1578. It is unsigned by any engraver and it would be hard to suggest anyone. This is one county map in which Web did not anglicise the title, only the date change can be noted.William Web (fl.1629-52) was a bookseller from Oxford. In 1645 he published 'The Maps of all the Shires in England and Wales. Exactly taken and truly described by Christopher Saxton'. The imprint states 'Printed for William Web at the Globe in Cornehill, London', despite Web being a bookseller in Oxford. Quite how he came into possession of the Saxton plates is unknown. The fact that the court of Charles I was in Oxford for the duration of the Civil War (1642-46) and the atlas is dedicated to the King can be no coincidence. The war undoubtedly caused a delay as most maps bear the date of 1642 despite the title imprint being 1645. Because it did not have the same impact and no doubt because of the Civil War this edition of Saxton's atlas is one of the rarest surviving in ONLY THREE RECORDED EXAMPLES. Evans & Lawrence (1979) pp. 45-7; Shirley Atlases in the BL T.Sax 1g; Skelton (1970) 27.

Small quarto. 19th-century black morocco, gilt, spine gilt extra, a.e.g., gilt inner dentelles. Extremities rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Foredge of titlepage neatly remargined. Very good. The first English edition of one of the most important early chronicles of the Spanish conquest of the New World, and one of the two chief accounts of Cortés' conquest of Mexico, the other being provided by Bernal Diaz. It is one of a handful of English language publications about the New World to appear in the 16th century, and an attractively printed work, with several large woodcut initials. Lopez de Gomara was Cortes' secretary for a number of years, and made use of his unparalleled opportunity to gather information from the primary source relating to the extraordinary exploits surrounding the overthrow of the Aztec empire. "Contains the first printed accounts of the Cortes expeditions to California, the expeditions of Francisco Ulloa, Marcos de Niza, Coronado, the subsidiary expeditions resulting from the last, and the voyage of Cabrillo" - Wagner. The work was first published in Zaragosa in 1552, and quickly went through a number of editions in Spain, Italy, and the Low Countries. The English translation was prepared by Thomas Nicholas, who abridged the original. A vital Elizabethan Americanum. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 578/41. WAGNER SPANISH SOUTHWEST, 2pp. SABIN 27751. CHURCH 123.

PITTONI, Giov. Batt.
Con le dichiarationi in versi di Lodovico Dolce et d'altri. Venetia, Girolamo Porro, 1578. in-4, il volume si compone del titolo inc., e di 66 tavole (mancano 4 pagine nn.di dedica del Porro ''Agli honorati lettori'' e lo stemma a piena pag. di Giacomo Soranzo, Procuratore di San Marco) di emblemi magistralmente inc. dal pittore G.B. Pittoni (nato a Vicenza nel 1520), recanti in basso, in apposito riquadro, i versi esplicativi di Lodovico Dolce. Legatura del XVIII secolo in pergamena, tassello e titolo in oro al dorso. Ricercata edizione di opera sugli emblemi (già apparsa nel 1562 e 1566) tra le meno comuni e di gran pregio per il magnifico lavoro grafico del Pittoni. Tra gli altri, vi sono emblemi dedicati a Carlo V, ai re Enrico di Francia e Filippo di Spagna, Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia, Sforza Pallavicino, Gius. Horologi, Ottavio Farnese, Card. Bembo, Gir. Ruscelli, il Tiziano e gli autori stessi Pittoni e Dolce (quello di quest'ultimo ripetuto). Il presente esemplare presenta aggiunto un magnifico foglio dell'epoca manoscritto e miniato al recto, con le armi araldiche di Antonio Isolani del 1584, Conte e Patrizio di Bologna. Pare particolarmente interessante sottolineare che Antonio Isolani è ricordato nel ''Theatro morale, de' moderni ingegni'', Venezia, Giolito, 1575 alle pp. 158-159, come autore di una serie di versi manoscritti mai stampati. La famiglia Isolani è ampiamente documentata in Bologna e si conserva il loro palazzo nel centro della città. Buon esemplare, nonostante le mancanze dichiarate (lievi aloni di polvere nei margini del titolo e di alcuni ff.). … [Click Below for Full Description]
