AUSONE
AUSONE - Opera AUSONE Opera Ex officina Christophori Plantini (Plantin), Antverpiae (Anvers) 1578, in-16 (7,5x11,5cm), (22) 7- 359p. (22), relié. Edition réalisée et annotée par theod. Pulmann. Texte en italiques.Reliure en plein veau marbré du XVIIe. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre en maroquin havane. Un manque en tête. 3 coins émoussés. Frottements.Ausone ou Decius ou Decimus Magnus Ausonius (309-394) est un poète latin originaire de Bazas, près de Bordeaux, où il fit ses études. La littérature française le place à l'origine de l'histoire de ses lettres et de sa poésie pour avoir été l'un des premiers poètes latins de France. Il sera, avant de se retirer près de Bordeaux, préfet pour l'Italie, puis l'Afrique, et enfin la Gaule. Poésie souvent érudite et affectée, son style a le mérite de nous mettre en scène la latinité, sa correspondance avec Paulin de Nole (converti puis cannonisé) est d'une grande importance pour la compréhension de cette période. *** [Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Jean Bodin
Paris: Jacques du Puys (Jacues), 1578. 3rd. Hardcover. Acceptable. [A Foundational Work in the Development of Constitutional Government and Political Science] Folio, 32 x 22 cm. Bound in contemporary calf. Joint worn. Some loss to head of spine. Woodcut printer's device on title. [44], 773 pages. Interleaved with contemporary blanks. Marginal staining throughout. Pages tanned. "Bodin first put clearly the argument ... that law is merely an expression of the sovereign will. He was, nevertheless, a firm believer in the sovereignty of the monarch. He approved, therefore, of absolute government, but he first recognized that there is a customary or natural law, and when the lawgiver's law becomes unjust, it ceases to be valid and can be resisted, i.e. the idea of constitutional law is here propounded." Printing in the Mind of Man 94, (Citing the first French edition of 1576.) Bodin's primary contribution to political science is his definition of sovereignty, as apart from the concept of the State (or Republic). His work delves into the idea of tyrannicide (differentiating between a tyrant and a despot). He tracks a moderate path supporting both the idea of the absolute sovereignty and the concept of natural law, thus avoiding the extremes of Machiavelli. (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) French edition of The Six Books of the Commonwealth. Brunet, I, 1025. Adams B2236.

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.

JODE, Gerard de
[Antwerp,: Gerard Smits, 1578]. [Antwerp,: Gerard Smits,, 1578].. Double-page engraved mapsheet incorporating two maps, fine original hand colour. A pair of maps showing the Duchies of Muscovy and Livonia. Muscovy was the centre of the newly formed Russia under Ivan the Terrible; Livonia was a part of the Duchy of Lithuania. De Jode's atlas ‘Speculum Orbis Terrarum' was first published in 1578 by Gerard de Jode (1509-1591) with text by Daniel Cellarius. It was designed to compete with Abraham Ortelius' atlas, 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', which had been published eight years earlier. Ortelius used his influence to disrupt de Jode's application for a royal privilege. By the time this was finally granted, seven years after the publication of the ‘Theatrum', Ortelius' work had become so popular that de Jode's atlas did not sell well, despite the accuracy and clarity of his maps. Although sales of de Jode's work were less than ideal, the atlas was evidently held in high regard, with several contemporaries citing its importance alongside the atlases of Mercator and Ortelius. Few examples of either edition of the ‘Speculum' have survived, making the maps within a rarity.

LESLIE, Bishop John
Rome,: In aedibus populi Romani, 1578. Rome,: In aedibus populi Romani,, 1578.. 2 parts in one volume, 4to (215 by 170mm), double ruled borders throughout, title with woodcut headpiece and vignette (repeated in colophon), woodcut headpieces and initials, folding engraved map of Scotland, 11 full-page engraved genealogies of the kings of Scotland, most incorporating portrait vignettes, the divisional title with the engraved arms of Mary Queen of Scots on the verso, contemporary limp vellum, title in manuscript to spine. This work is an important history and description of Scotland written by the Catholic John Leslie, Bishop of Ross (1527-1596). It was composed in Scottish during Leslie's imprisonment in 1568-70, although the Scottish version was not published until 1830. The second part of the history which covers the period 1436-1562 is the most valuable; it is more detailed than the earlier part of the work, and the final book in particular is of great value as a catholic view of events with which the bishop was personally acquainted. The descriptions of the Scottish islands and counties are mostly based on Leslie's own observations. The final genealogical tree contains a portrait of Mary, Queen of Scots, and her son James, the future James I of England (1566-1625) at the age of 12. The map is based upon the map of Great Britain by George Lily of 1548. Adams L541; Censimento 16 CNCE 33941.

Ausone ou Decius ou Decimus Magnus Ausonius (309-394) est un poète latin originaire de Bazas, près de Bordeaux, où il fit ses études. La littérature française le place à l'origine de l'histoire de ses lettres et de sa poésie pour avoir été l'un des premiers poètes latins de France. Il sera, avant de se retirer près de Bordeaux, préfet pour l'Italie, puis l'Afrique, et enfin la Gaule. Poésie souvent érudite et affectée, son style a le mérite de nous mettre en scène la latinité, sa correspondance avec Paulin de Nole (converti puis cannonisé) est d'une grande importance pour la compréhension de cette période.

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.

Bulino, 1578, datato e firmato in lastra, in basso al centro, 'Ioa baptista de Cavalleris incidebat Romae 1578'.

L'incisione riproduce, nello stesso verso, la splendida pala d'altare completata sotto la direzione di Giorgio Vasari nel 1553, per la chiesa romana che proprio da quest'opera prende il nome di S. Giovanni Decollato. La scena, sviluppata in profondità, è ambientata all'interno della prigione in cui il Battista era stato rinchiuso da Erode. Ai lati, due file formato a sinistra da soldati, a destra da ancelle. La loro disposizione guida/conduce lo spettatore verso il centro della stanza, dove giace decapitato il corpo del Battista Il risalto della sua figura è ottenuto con un abile gioco di luci ed ombre: la figura del suo carnefice, che con la mano sinistra tiene dai capelli la testa del Battista, nell'atto di riporla sul vassoio, è delineata con un tratteggio molto fitto, così da risultare completamente in ombra, quale figura tenebrosa e malvagia. Opera di grande rarità. "Engraving, Signed and dated lower centre: 'Ioa baptista de Cavalleris incidebat Romae 1578'.

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.

(Reliure du XVIIIe.). ____ Ce violent pamphlet calviniste dirigé contre le Pape, est illustré par 36 belles gravures sur bois. Le texte est fortement augmentée dans cette nouvelle édition.

Elle a un style distinct de son modèle, style personnel très remarquable qui lui donne sa valeur d'oeuvre d'art." (Paul Chaix, Un pamphlet genevois du XVIe siècle. L'Antithèse de S. Du Rosier, recherche iconographique.) Bel exemplaire. Brunet 1, 323. GLN-2692. *-------* This violent Calvinist pamphlet directed against the Pope, is illustrated by 36 beautiful woodcuts.

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]
