1578. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Giuseppe Mascardi was an important 16th-century Sarzanese jurist and lawyer known for his landmark and major work 'De Probationibus.' This book of questions and answers focus on legal cases, civil, feudal and criminal law, commentary on law interpretation and the results of many cases. This book also has cases on witch trials, in which Mascardi notes that many of the cases could not prove guilt or innocence; however, in the cases of witchcraft, guilt was always assumed. (Spee). Mascardi outlines legal procedure and this book was used to uphold many rules and court decisions. [Attributes: First Edition]

PLAUTO Tito Maccio.
Ex Officina Gulielmi Hetman, Coloniae, 1578. Testo latino. Cm.34,8x22,8. Pg.(8), 792, (56). Legatura in mz.pergamena con piatti decorati e titoli manoscritti al dorso. Cartigli e capilettera incisi. Al frontespizio marca tipografica raffigurante un serpente tra le fiamme che morde un mano divina, con il motto "Neque mors, neque venenum". Pubblicata la prima volta nel 1576, la versione del Lambino delle 20 commedie di Plauto, con ricchissimo apparato di commentari e note, è opera rara. 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). > Adams, II, 1503.

A rare book of laws for Carinthia, was printed in Graz by a protestant printer Zacharias Bartsch. A book of laws for Carinthia, Austria, with a highly decorative title page, printed in black and red, was printed in 1578 in Graz by a protestant printer Zacharias Bartsch. Printer Zacharias Bartsch - Zacharias Bartsch (fl. 1563-1579) was, for a brief time, one of the most prominent Protestant publishers in the Habsburg Empire, yet little is known about his biography and all of his works are today very rare. In 1563, he opened a printing office in Graz in partnership with Tobias Lauterbach, although the latter died in 1566. During the 15 years of its operation the press issued 47 known separate works, generally consisting of calendars, law books and scholastic publications. The present book was by far Bartsch’s most elaborate and important creation, especially with regards to Protestant history. Bartsch is thought to have carved the woodcuts personally and the work was supported by wealthy local Protestants burghers. He was also highly regarded by the Protestant nobles who influenced the regiona … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage de Noël Taillepied (Normandie, 1540 - Angers 1589), dans lequel il retrace, sous forme d'un dialogue, l'origine des institutions chrétiennes. Taillepied était un cordelier qui se consacra à l'enseignement. Il est l'auteur de quelques ouvrages, la plupart tournés vers l'occultisme et les phénomènes surnaturels, et qui sont tous "rares et recherchés" (Stanislas de Guaita). Cette première édition est si rare qu'elle a échappé à quelques-uns des principaux bibliographes. Brunet et Caillet citent tous deux une édition de 1586 comme étant l'originale. De même le catalogue de la Bibliothèque Nationale de France ne répertorie pas d'édition antérieure à 1586. Manque au catalogue de la BNF qui ne répertorie que l'édition de 1586.

DANTE ALIGHIERI
Giovanbattista Marchio Sessa e f.llli,, Venetia, 1578. In f° (30,5 x 21). Con il ritratto di Dante al frontespizio e 96 belle illustrazioni xilografiche nel testo. Qualche traccia d’uso ma buon esemplare marginoso in legatura tardo Settecento mezza pelle, restaurata, piatti in carta decorata. Celebre edizione passata alla storia grazie al ritratto del Poeta comunemente noto come "col gran naso" per via del peculiare profilo. L’apparato iconografico è molto ricco e ripropone il corredo delle xilografie adoperate per l’edizione del 1544 impressa dal Marcolini, ma con un palese maggiore respiro dell’impaginazione.

Julius Caesar
Plantin, Antwerp. An interesting blind stamp, displaying Jael killing Sisera with a hammer, binds this 1578 Plantin Press edition of Caesar's Commentaries (in Latin), with both the Gallic and Civil War commentaries. There are also notes, including several pages from Aldus Manutius (at the rear of the volume). Five woodcuts by Cornelius Muller introduce the work, showing various strategies of Caesar in Gaul; the Aldine maps of Gaul and Spain are not included (not sure if they are missing or not in this 1578 printing; the matching copy of this year's printing scanned to Google Books does not have them either). About the Work - These are Julius Caesar's own Commentaries on his Gallic and Civil wars. Aldus Manutius first printed these, as he was a fan of Caesar's excellent Latin writing style; to this day these are used to teach Latin in the collegiate setting. About the Printer - Christophe Plantin is a well-known and well-regarded printer of the 16th century, based mainly out of Antwerp. About the Binding - The rear board has the date 1579, meaning it is the original binding to the work. Also, one of the pages towards the rear is "unopened", supporting that the book hasn't been rebound and trimmed many times. The database of bindings (EBDB) has an exact match of the Jael plate with a note, ".of the master NP of 1559"; record EBDB p002894, workshop W004454. There is a small H to the left of Jael's head, and a V to the right. It is known that a binder of the initials H.V., Hans Volker, used the Jael decoration, with this inscription from Judges. But a small wrench in the likely … [Click Below for Full Description]

COOPER, THOMAS
London: [H. Denham], 1578. Third edition (first published 1565 - the last edition was 1584), folio, collating [pi2-6], A-6V6; text in double columns; full contemporary reverse blind-tooled calf, label wanting, spine in 6 compartments; extremities rubbed and worn, a few small losses to calf on front cover; joints cracked, cords holding; spine ends chipped and cracked; bookplate removed from front pastedown; text block generally fine. Later (1832) ownership inscription of Edward Goulburn, possibly the 19th-century serjeant-at-law with his manuscript drawings and signatures on front pastedown and title page; additional manuscript in his hand laid in. Cooper (1517-1594) brought out the first edition of this work in 1565, familiarly known as Cooper's Dictionary, which brought him in turn the recognition of Queen Elizabeth, and fame. The Thesaurus was a standard reference during the formative years of Spencer, Marlow, Shakespeare and Jonson; and for scholars today it remains one of the most important books for the study of the English idiom of the Elizabethan period.

This field of research then became very popular also in France, where it fostered the blossoming of the mos gallicus school.

Sono ben 46 tavv. di cui: 41 (a p. pag.) raffigurano piante, 2 portano l'immagine di due elefanti (a p. pag.) e 3 (più piccole) con figure di foglie, tutte disegnate da Acosta. L'opera chiude con un "Tractado del Elephante", il primo studio monografico su questo animale. "Edizione originale" di questa rara e importante opera che ebbe notevole influenza in Europa perchè fece conoscere le piante asiatiche più importanti, sia dal punto di vista medicinale che del loro utilizzo come spezie; fra queste segnaliamo: ginger, cannella, pepe, noce moscata, oppio e cardamomo. In realtà questo trattato è una versione rivista ed accresciuta dei "Coloquios dos simples e drogas he cousas medicinais da India" di Garcia da Orta, pubblicato a Goa nel 1563. Medico e botanico portoghese il da Orta aveva a lungo studiato la flora locale di Goa, concentrandosi specialmente su quelle piante che potevano essere impiegate in campo medico. Acosta, medico gesuita, fece la conoscenza di da Orta nel corso dei suoi viaggi in India e la sua versione dei "Coloquios" risulta pertanto molto interessante per le sistematiche e dirette osservazioni sul campo.

Antique print, titled: 'Asiae Tab. VII. (On map: Scythia intra Imaum ).' - Original antique map of Ancient Scythia. A beautiful Ptolemaic map Central Asia east of the Caspian Sea and what is now Turkestan, the Steppes, Afghanistan and beyond. The Himalayas and Northern India run across the bottom of the map. Embellished with a sea monster, and nomadic figures with lifestock inhabiting the steppes. With a decorative, scrollwork cartouche. From the an early ed. of Mercator's Ptolemy Atlas: 'Claudii Ptolemaei Tabulae Geographicae Orbis Terrarum Veteribus Cogniti.' This Atlas was first published in 1578 and re-published in 1584, 1605, 1618/1619, 1695, 1698, 1704 and 1730. For the 1698 ed. the plates were reworked wit new cartouches and a new title engraving. Of all the editions of Ptolemy the Mercator editions are considered the finest in execution. It was Mercator's intention to produce an Atlas of the classical world, not a current atlas, made as a companion to his modern atlas. We have not been able to determine the exact pre 1798 ed. of this map. Any input appreciated. State: 1st State, before the rework in 1698. Hand coloured engraving on hand laid (verge type with chainlines) paper. Watermark: coat of arms Made by 'Gerard Mercator' after 'Ptolemy'. Gerard Mercator (Kremer) was born in Rupelmonde in Flanders and studied in Louvain. He made his first map in 1537 and became a cartographer and globe maker. In 1552 he moved to Duisburg, Germany where he published his famous 18-sheet world map in 1569 with his own new projection, today called Mercator projection. Later he decid … [Click Below for Full Description]

TOSCANO, Giovanni Matteo (ca. 1500-1580)
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 lit sur la page de titre, … [Click Below for Full Description]
