        Insignia Sacrae

      Frankfurt: G. Corvinus for S. Feyerabendt, 1579. Woodcut illustrations throughout. 116 (of 144) leaves. 4to. Contemporary vellum, covers decorated with fine pen-and-ink drawings by Cesare Vecellio for Odorico Pillone (coat-of-arms on upper cover, emblematic figure of woman, perhaps the goddess Ceres, on lower cover), remnants of vellum ties. Recased, with new endsheets, front upper corner repaired, some scuffing and staining to covers. Woodcut illustrations throughout. 116 (of 144) leaves. 4to. One of the few volumes with decorated vellum covers from the Pillone library. Of the 172 volumes with fore-edge or binding decorations by Cesare Vecellio in the Pillone library, only 21 were so bound in plain vellum and adorned with ink drawings. Vecellio (1530-1600), a cousin of Titian and author of the famous costume book Degli habiti antichi et moderni, was commissioned in the 1580s by Odorico Pillone to decorate the books of his library - the majority were given visible fore-edge paintings. The library remained intact until the 1950s when it was purchased by Pierre Berès from the heirs of Sir Thomas Brooks and subsequently dispersed.

        Consilia Sive Responsa, Quae Quidem Extant Omnia: Nunc Demum

      1579 - "If Cravetta Says So, That's Enough" Cravetta, Aimone (Aymon) [1504-1569]. Consilia Sive Responsa, Quae Quidem Extant Omnia: Nunc Demum Multo Diligentius Quam unquam Antea Castigata, & Multis in Locs Illustrata. Cum Indice Rerum Copiosissimo. Lyons: Apud Carolum Pesnot, 1579. [iv], 789, [71] pp. Main text in parallel columns. Folio (15" x 10-1/2"). Recent quarter pigskin over cloth retaining portions of original calf boards, recent cloth ties, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, cloth-covered pastedowns, marbled free endpapers. Rubbing to calf portions of boards, preliminaries re-hinged but starting at foot. Title printed within ornate woodcut architectural border, woodcut head-pieces and decorated initials. Light toning to text, some soiling to title page, light dampstaining to margins in places, inkspots to edges of text block and a few leaves. Upper margin closely trimmed with some loss to headlines in first quarter of text, top and fore-edge of title page trimmed with some loss. Early struck-through signature to foot of title page, interior otherwise clean. * Cravetta was a renowned Piedmontese jurist who practiced in Milan. "If Cravetta says so, that's enough," ran a popular assessment of his authority. The first collection of his consilia was published in 1566. Another followed in 1572. The contents of both were combined in a single volume, with some additions and subtractions, in 1575. Our 1579 edition contains the 326 consilia found in the 1566 and 1572 editions and 3 responsa on behalf of Cravetta's son-in-law, Hector a Rubeis. Cravetta believed in the limitation of the absolute power of princes. This is the subject of Consilium 241, which became a standard text on the subject. Complete in itself, this collection was later continued by other publishers to comprise six parts in all (1000 consilia). OCLC locates 5 copies of our 1579 imprint, 1 in North America (at the Library of Congress).

      Woodcut printer's device on title, another version on recto of final leaf, & 44 woodcuts in the text, including a port. of Isacchi at age 44 & the arms of the dedicatee, Cornelio Bentivoglio (most of the woodcuts are full-page). 8 p.l., 170, [9] pp. Small 4to, 17th-cent. vellum over boards (first six leaves with upper outer corners repaired, touching a few letters; marginal dampstaining to final twenty leaves). Parma: S. Vitto, 1579. First edition "of a rare book of considerable chemical interest containing over fifty inventions and secrets on gunpowder formulations, weapons, mechanical devices, and surveying methods. Many inventions relate to the art of war, but others are for industrial as well as leisure purposes. Most remarkable are recipes for making fireworks for military and festive use. The unusual strong cutting of the blocks (three signed C.R. by the blockcutter) is considered by Mortimer to be similar to that used in the figures in Thesaurus artificiosae memoriae (Venice, 1579), by Cosma Rosselio... "Isacchi (1536?-after 1596), an engineer of Reggio, was in charge of the decorations for festivities in Bologna, Mantua, Novellara, and Reggio. In 1596 he became the chief of artillery for Duke Alfonso of Mantua."-Neville, I, p. 682. Other inventions are a surveying instrument shaped like a dagger and an interesting telegraphic device, a heliograph worked with mirrors. This is an uncommon book. J.E. Hodgkin commented in his Rariora (1902), III, p. 8-"This is in some respects one of the most remarkable books on fireworks I possess. I have never seen another copy, nor is the book described in any work I have consulted." Signature dated 1742 of "Soranzo" on free front-endpaper. Another early signature at foot of title. ❧ Cockle, Bibliography of Military Books, 547. Mortimer 242. Philip, A Bibliography of Firework Books, pp. 76-77. Riccardi, I, 651-"Questo raro libro." .

        Le Digest des Briefes Originals, Et des Choses Concernants Eux.

      1579 - An Important Early Work on Writs Theloall, Simon. Le Digest des Briefes Originals, Et des Choses Concernants Eux. London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1579. [viii], 424 ff. Octavo (6" x 4"). Seventeenth-century calf, blind rules to boards, raised bands and later lettering piece to spine, early hand-lettered title to fore-edge of text block. A few shallow scuffs to boards, some rubbing to extremities, front board beginning to separate, rear joint starting, some chipping to spine ends, corners bumped, pastedowns lacking, partial crack to text block between ff. 192 and 193. Light soiling to title page, toning to text. Annotations in neat early chancery hand to several leaves, later owner signature of William Jones to title page. An appealing copy of a scarce title. * First edition. An important early work on writs, Theloall's Digest owes its origin to the suggestion of Staunford that it would be a good idea if lawyers would write treatises on the other titles of the abridgments similar to his study of the Title "Prerogative." Staunford illustrated his meaning by showing how the Title "Brief" might be treated. Theloall chose this title, and wrote a treatise on it for his own use. The manuscript, having been lent, eventually found its way to a printer. "It deserved to be printed, as it is the most orderly treatise on procedure, founded on the Year Books, that had yet appeared. Historically, it comes between the older commentaries upon writs and the modern books on procedure.": Holdsworth, A History of English Law V:381. A second edition was published in 1678. The owner of this book may have been Sir William Jones [1746-1794], the important jurist, legal writer and Orientalist. Beale, A Bibliography of Early English Law Books T499.

      Francof. ad Moenum [Frankfurt]: Nicolaus Bassaeus. 1579. Third edition of the first Latin translation of Reynard the Fox, previously published in 1567 and 1574. 24mo. 496, [20]pp. 57 woodcuts by Jobst Amman. Utilitarian later (probably early 20th Century) cloth with morocco spine label gilt. Trimmed but with reasonable margins. A small worm hole on the first few leaves, a very good or better copy. The Reynard cycle of stories (satirical allegories rather than stories for children), in which the trickster fox outwits his enemies, often the greedy and dull-witted wolf, arose in the 10th and 11th Centuries and were popular throughout medieval Europe in several languages, most notably in the French versions. Several more modern translations derive from Schopper's Latin version. .

        M. MANILI ASTRONOMICON LIBRI QUINQUE. Eiusdem Ios. Scaligeri commentarius in eosdem libros, et castigationum explicationes.

      Tip. Mamert Patisson ("Apud Mamertum Patissonium."), en la oficina de Robert Stephan. París, 1579 - . 18 cm. Dos tomos: (I) 6 h., 136 pág., 4 h. (II) Iosephi Scaligeri. In Manili quinque libros astronomicon commentarium et castigationes. 292 pág., 6 h. Texto en latín y griego. Ilustr. con grabados, en el texto. Cada tomo con portada propia con marca tipográfica. En el verso de la portada del primer volumen hay un escudo grabado. Dos tomos enc. en un vol. en plena piel, nervios, florones, ruedas en ambos planos, cortes pintados. Pequeña señal de taladro restaurado en el margen de las últimas 30 páginas. * Esta obra se divide en dos partes: la primera es el poema de Marco Manilio sobre astronomía y astrología, y la segunda son los comentarios de Scaliger. Marco Manilio escribió este poema didáctico alrededor del año 10 d. C. Es el poema más antiguo que se conoce sobre el tema y es donde aparece por primera vez mencionado el sistema astrológico de las doce casas. Se divide en cinco libros: el primero es una descripción del cielo y del origen del mundo; el segundo versa sobre el zodíaco; el tercero sobre la elaboración del horóscopo; el cuarto analiza la influencia de los astros en los diferentes pueblos, y el último explica la influencia de los planetas según su posición. Esta edición es la primera edición crítica, publicada por Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609), destacado humanista conocido porque fue el primero en poner de relieve la importancia en la historia y el pensamiento antiguos de las civilizaciones persa, babilonia, egipcia y también la judía. Estos comentarios al poema de Manilio constituyen en realidad un tratado sobre astronomía, ya que Scaliger no sólo se refiere a los saberes de la antigüedad, sino también lo enriquece con los conocimientos astronómicos de científicos de su época como Copérnico.

        Vivae imagines partium corporis humanis aereis formis expressae. [and] VESALIUS, Andreas. De humani corporis fabrica librorum epitome

      Antwerp: Christopher Plantin, 16 May 1579. (ANATOMY) 4to. With 42 full page engraved anatomical plates by Pieter and Franz Huys (re-engraved after Gaspar Vecerra's engravings for the 1556 Rome edition of Valverde), all but 15 after the woodcuts for Vesalius' FABRICA. Lacking leaf A1, engraved title page. A-V4 [-A1]. [3]-172, [2] ff. Contemporary vellum. Ink stamp of medical society of Sarthe (Fr.) in margin of a few leaves, foot of A2 torn away in margin. Wellcome 6481; Adams V235; Choulant-Frank, p. 206; Mortimer Italian 513 (1560 Venice edition) . Beautifully produced Plantin edition of this noted 16th century anatomical work, with the text of Vesalius's Epitome. Valverde (fl. 1560) was a Spanish physician who trained in Padua under Vesalius and Colomobo, and who first published his text in Spanish in 1556 with certain improvements to Vesalius, using for the most part the woodcuts for Vesalius (re-engraved by Beccara) as the basis for the illustrations. There were, however, 15 new cuts introduced, including the famous image of the flayed man holding aloft his own skin ("possibly suggested by Michelangelo}s flayed skin in the Sistine Chapel", according to Ruth Mortimer). Here Valverde's text is printed in Latin by the great Antwerp printer Christopher Plantin, whose press issued some of the greatest illustrated books of the 16th century, along with the EPITOME of Vesalius, with the plates magnificently re-engraved by the Flemish artists/engravers, Pieter and Franz Huys of Antwerp

Opus Saluberrimum.

      Apud Michaelem Sonnium 1579 - 1 vol. in-folio (340 x 225) reliure plein cuir espagnole d'époque de style "plateresque", triple encadrement à motifs de petits portraits en médaillons estampé à froid sur plats, ais de bois, anciennes traces de fermoirs, Apud Michaelem Sonnium, via Iacobaea, sub Scuto Basiliensi, 1579, 16 ff. n. ch. (titre, privilège, préface et tables), 513 pp., [1] pp., 12 ff. n. ch. (index). Intéressant exemplaire de l'oeuvre du célèbre controversiste catholique anglais (1535-1598), dans une belle reliure espagnole contemporaine, tout à fait caractéristique du style "plateresco" (rel. frottée, 1 mors fendu, mais bien solide, bon intérieur, malgré qq. petites mouill. marginales et de rares piq. de vers). Après ses études à Cantorbéry et au séminaire de Winchester, l'avènement d'Elisabeth contraint Thomas Stapleton à la fuite en Belgique devant les persécutions anti-catholiques. Professeur d'Ecriture Sainte à Douai puis à Louvain, il mourut avant son élévation au cardinalat souhaitée par le Clément VIII. Döllinger estimait fort cet ouvrage, peut-être moins érudit mais plus profond que du "De controversis christianae Fidei" de Bellarmin. Libraire très instruit et renommé, chef d'une célèbre lignée d'imprimeurs, Michel Ier Sonnius avait repris la marque de Michel Fedanzar dont il avait racheté le fonds : la vipère de l'Ile de Malte s'attachant sans lui nuire aux doigts de saint Paul, avec la devise "Si Deus pro nobis, quis contra nos ?". L'ouvrage porte en p. de garde l'ex-libris ms. d'époque "D. Ceno et amicorum", accompagné de la devise "Dominus regit me, et nihil mihi deerit". (Werdet, IV, 118 ; Adams, 1652) // Folio, contemporary spanish full blind-stamped calf over wooden boards, style "plateresco". Adams, 1652. More pictures can be sent on request.

        De Officiis Libri III. Cato maior, vel de Senectute: Laelius, vel de Amicitia: Paradoxa Stoicorum sex. Cum Petri Marsi, Francisci Maturantij, Omniboni, Martini Philetici, & Ascensii, in hac omnia praestantissimis commentarijs. Marii Nizolij Brixellensis.

      apud Ioan. Gryphium,, Veentijs, 1579 - In-folio (290x210mm), ff. (4), 221, legatura coeva pergamena rigida con unghie e titolo calligrafato al dorso. Impresa editoriale incisa su legno al frontespizio col grifone, richiamante il nome dello stampatore, che regge con l'artiglio una pietra alla quale è incatenato un globo alato ed il motto "Virtute duce comite fortuna". Ampio indice preliminare su cinque colonne; il testo di Cicerone è invece su due colonne. Capilettera istoriati in xilografia. Antica firma al frontespizio. Alcuni piccoli lavori di tarlo e una goretta al frontespizio. Alcune glosse marginali di mano rinascimentale. Ottimo esemplare (rifilato leggermente al margine superiore). Bella edizione veneziana di alcune delle principali opere filosofiche ciceroniane, con i ricchi commenti di Josse Bade, Ognibene Bonisoli, Martino Filetico, Pietro Marso, Francesco Maturanzio e con le "Defensiones" dell'umanista brescellese Mario Nizzoli indirizzate contro le "Castigationes" di Celio Calcagnini. Strutturato in tre libri, il "De Officiis" è uno dei capidopera del Cicerone filosofo, composto nel 44 a.C. e dedicato al figlio Marco, inviato l'anno prima ad Atene per approfondire gli studi di filosofia. In parte derivato dallo stoico Panezio, il trattato, conforme ai canoni della precettistica romana, si diffonde ampiamente sulle virtù e i doveri, sui conflitti sorti da quello che modernamente chiameremmo il "pluralismo dei valori", sull'identità in sede pratica dell'onesto con l'utile, valori che possono confliggere tra loro solo nella sfera teorica. Fra i documenti anche umanamente più intensi di Cicerone, il trattato è steso in forma quasi colloquiale, più prossima alle lettere agli amici dell'Arpinate che alla prosa delle sue opera oratorie e filosofiche. Scrisse lapidariamente Francesco Arnaldi dell'opera, nella sua dotta voce "Cicerone" nell'Enciclopedia Italiana (:X, 204): "Il De Officiis, quali che possano essere state le sue fonti greche, è forse la più profonda e la più sobria delle opere ciceroniane". Il Nizzoli, o Nizolio (Brescello, 1488-Sabbioneta, 1566), umanista allievo del Valla, letterato e filosofo, fu professore nelle università di Parma e di Sabbioneta. La sua più importante opera filosofica è il "De veri principiis et de vera ratione philosophandi contra Pseudophilosophos" (1553), apprezzata dallo stesso Leibniz, che la ristampò due volte, nel 1671 e nel 1674, con il titolo "Antibarbarus philosophicus". Oppositore della scolastica e delle sue astrusità, le sue posizioni furono influenzate dal nominalismo di Occam e si situano fra le più stimolani e antitradizionalistiche del nostro Rinascimento. EDIT16 CNCE 12443. Cfr. STC Italian Books, p. 176 (registra l'edizione dello stesso stampatore e sempre in-folio del 1572, di cui questa è una ristampa). Non in Adams.
