      APUD IOANNEM BELLERUM SUB AQUILA AUREA, 1580. In 24. Dim. 13x8 cm. Pp. (36)+370+(24).Rarissima edizione senza data ma del 1580 della nota leggenda "Barlaam Iosaphat". Il racconto, attribuito a San Giovanni Damasceno (676-749) e popolarissimo in età medievale narra la conversione di Iosafat per merito del Santo eremita Barlaam. Sembra che la storia venne in realtà ricalcata sul modello della vicenda della conversione del Buddha. San Giovanni Damasceno venne dichiarato dottore della chiesa nel 1890. Opera redatta a cura di Georges Trapezuntius. Alla fine del volume la breve opera "De comparatione regis et monachi" di Giovanni Cristostomo a cura di Germain Brice.

It seems that the history was in reality compared on the model of the happening of conversion of Buddha. Saint John of Damascus was declaired doctor of church in 1890.

        Historia del Rey Don Hernando el Catholico.

      Zaragoza, Domingo de Portonarijs y Ursino 1580 - Zurita y Castro, Jerónimo. Historia del Rey Don Hernando el Catholico. De las Empresas, y Ligas de Italia. Zaragoza, Domingo de Portonarijs y Ursino, 1580. 2 volumes in folio. [6] + 351 + [1] leaves; [6] + 408 leaves. Roman letter. Text printed in 2 columns. Large woodcut with the arms of Aragon on both titles. Historiated & ornamental woodcut initials. Old red morocco; inner gilt dentelle. First edition of this authoritative early life of Ferdinand I of Aragon (1452-1516), the creator of modern Spain on uniting Aragon and Castille into a single kingdom through his marriage to his cousin Isabel of Castille in 1469. The joint monarchs’ conquest of the rich Arab kingdom of Granada in 1492 provided the resources for Columbus’ voyage to America and made the discoveries possible. In 1493 Ferdinand recovered Roussillon from France, and by 1512 he had annexed most of Navarre. His military victories in Italy and the dynastic marriages of his two daughters made him appear a successor of Charlemagne. He was admired by Machiavelli who saw him as the role model for his ideal prince. The royal biographer, Gerónimo Zurita (1512-80), a distinguished humanist trained at the University of Alcalá., founded the tradition of historical scholarship in Spain. As official chronicler to the kingdom of Aragon (1548), he had access to all state archives and libraries, and was able to research extensively in Italy and the Low Countries. The biography was compiled as parts 5 and 6 of Zurita’s Anales de la Corona de Aragón beginning with the Moorish invasion and concluding with the reign of the Catholic monarchs. The chronicler’s father, Miguel Zurita, had been King Ferdinand’s physician. Both titles are decorated with the handsome triple arms of the kingdom of Aragon : an armorial shield in the centre showing the ‘Bars of Aragon’ , formerly the arms of the counts of Barcelona, headed with a dragon crest; to the right, the ‘Cross of Iñigo Arista’, a quarter-field cross with a spiked lower end, representing the arms of the first king of Pamplona, held up by an angel; to the left, the ‘Cross of Alcoraz’, a shield quartered with 4 moor’s heads representing the arms of Sardinia, is supported by an angel. Blank top title margins of both volumes with signature of [Louis-Basile] de Bernage (1691-1767), mayor of Paris, and governor of Languedoc; tailend title margins with small stamp of Libreria Cervantes de Julio Suarez, Buenos Aires. From the collection of Matias Errázuriz (1897-1941), Argentine bibliophile and art collector, sold at auction by Bullrich in 1942. A few repairs in tailend blank margins. Palau 38757.

        San Domenico scaccia il demonio

      1580. Bulino, firmato in lastra in basso al centro. Edita a Venezia da Luca Bertelli. Buona prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con piccoli margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Tra i seguaci tecnicamente più dotati di Marcantonio, Rota fu uno degli artisti che esportò al nord lo stile e la tecnica italiana dell'arte della stampa. Stando agli indirizzi riportati su molte delle sue lastre, era nato a Sebenico, in Dalmazia, la stessa regione natale di Schiavone. Tuttavia la vita dell'artista, prima della sua presenza a Roma, nel 1540, come incisore di riproduzioni, è pressoché ignota. Le prime stampe da lui realizzate coniugavano la maniera raffinata e sistematica di Marcantonio con un'abilità in continua crescita. Engraving, signed at lower centre. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with margins, in excellent condition. Rota was one of those artists who exported Northward the Italian technique and style of printing; he was also one of the most skilled acolytes of Marcantonio. According to the addresses carved on many plates, he was born in Sibenik, in Dalmatia, the same native region of Schiavone. Nonetheless, there are bit a few news about his life before his arrival in Rome in 1540, where he worked ad engraver. His first prints combined Marcantonio's refined style and a growing technical skill. Bartsch 17; Bury, The print in Italy 1550 - 1620, p. 191. Dimensioni 217x339.

        Tunetis Urbis ac novae eius arcis, et Guletae...effigies

      1580. Veduta dell'antica città di Tunisi, pubblicata nel Civitates Orbis Terrarum, di Braun & Hogenberg, il primo atlante devoto esclusivamente alle piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo. Stampato in sei volumi tra il 1572 ed il 1617 ebbe grande fortuna e diffusione, tanto che ne furono stampate diverse edizioni tradotte in latino, tedesco e francese; gli intagli dei rami sono attribuiti a Franz Hogenberg e Simon van de Noevel. La città è raffigurata sotto assedio: la città è vista da est, così come il Golfo di Tunisi, e la grande laguna stagnante (stagnum), oggi El Bahira, di fronte ad essa. Ai due accessi al mare si trovano le fortezze La Goulette e Nova Arx si trovano; la città si vede sullo sfondo. Tunisi, fondata prima del IX secolo aC, era sempre stata ambita dalla varie potenze per la sua posizione. Storicamente governata dagli Africani prima e dagli Arabi poi, solo nel 1535 passò sotto il dominio europeo, quando Carlo V riuscì a conseguire una vittoria importante sulll'impero ottomano. Nel 1569 i Turchi conquistarono Tunisi sotto Kilic Ali Pasha; la persero nel 1573 contro Filippo II di Spagna per riottenerla nel 1574. Incisione in rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This depiction of Tunis shows the town under siege: the town is seen from the east, as well as the Gulf of Tunis, and the large stagnant lagoon (stagnum), today called El Bahira, in front of it. At both entrances to the sea the fortresses La Goulette and Nova Arx are found; the town is seen in the background. Tunis, which was founded before the 9th century BC, was always an apple of discord due to its location. Following multiple Arabic and African rulers the Europeans attempted to capture the town for the first time in 1270. Yet it wasn't until 1535 that this could be accomplished, by Charles V, who with it achieved an important victory over the Ottoman Empire; he was even able to defeat the Turk's most formidable leader, Khair ad - Din, otherwise known as Barbarossa. In 1569 the Turks captured Tunis under Kilic Ali Pasha, then lost it in 1573 to Philip II of Spain and won it back in 1574 This map is part of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum, the first atlas entirely dedicated to city plans and views of the main cities of the world. Printed in six volumes between 1572 and 1617, it has been translated in Latin, German and French; the carving of the branches has been ascribed to Franz Hogenberg and Simon van de Noevel. Copperplate, printed on contemporary laid paper, in very good condition. Colonia Cologne 420 325

        Andeutung, einer unerhörten newen Wunderkunst. Welche der Geist Gottes, in etlichen Prophetischen, und Biblischen Geheimnuss Zahlen, bis auff die letzte Zeit hat wöllen versiegelt und verborgen halten. Ulm, Lorentz Miller; Nuremberg, Abraham Wagenmann, 1613. 4to. 19-century half cloth.

      BLC STC German (17th cent.) F-234; DSB IV, pp. 550; WorldCat (4 copies); cf. Koetsier & Bergmans, Mathematics and the divine, pp. 311-328. First edition of one of the mystical arithmetic works by the well-known German mathematician and alchemist Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635). A Latin translation appeared in the same year. Faulhaber's earlier attempts to interpret the Bible with mathematics caused him to be thrown in jail, after he wrongly predicted the ending of the world in 1605. He was soon released and published several other works with a similar approach, including this one where he concludes that pyramidal numbers are the key to God's biblical prophecies. With the 20th-century bookplate of Karin Figala. Reasonable copy, with the first and last page slightly soiled, a small restoration to the title-page, some foxing, minor stains and a few marginal annotations.

        Giuditta con la testa di Oloferne

      1580. Bulino, 1579 - 1581 circa, privo di firma. Da un soggetto di Lorenzo Sabbatini, il cui nome appare in basso a sinistra. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione deriva da un dipinto di Lorenzo Sabbatini che, secondo Gori Gandinelli, apparteneva alla famiglia Bianchetti di Bologna. Del quadro si era persa traccia, finché nel Gabinetto delle Stampe a Milano è comparso un quadro catalogato come il medesimo della raccolta Bianchetti. In realtà, l'identificazione non appare certa, e il quadro potrebbe essere una copia del Sabbatini. Rispetto al modello originale, la stampa presenta delle differenze che potrebbe essere spiegate ipotizzando che Agostino avesse a disposizione un disegno preparatorio del Sabbatini, oggi perduto. Nella stampa, manca la decorazione ai bordi del tavolo, e l'espressione del volto di Giuditta è più gentile ed eroica rispetto al dipinto. Le pieghe voluminose della veste che indossa conferiscono alla donna una maggiore spazialità rispetto al modello. La storia di Giuditta è narrata nella Bibbia Cristiana: per salvare la propria città di Betulia, assediata dagli Assiri di Oloferne, generale di Nabucodonosor, Giuditta si recò con la serva nel campo nemico, per sedurlo. Colpito dalla sua bellezza, il generale cadde nella trappola, e una notte, mentre giaceva nella sua tenda ubriaco, Giuditta gli tagliò la testa e la portò in città, complice la sua ancella. Il giorno dopo la testa di Oloferne fu esposta sulle mura della città, e gli Assiri, atterriti, fuggirono via. La storia è stata fonte di ispirazioni per i più grandi artisti, tra cui Mantegna, Tiziano, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, fino ad arrivare a Klimt. Bellissimo esemplare. Engraving, about 1579 - 1581, unsigned. After a painting by Lorenzo Sabbatini, whose name appears at the lower left. Excellent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to the copperplate, in excellent condition. Agostino Carracci had made a reproductive engraving after a painting by a Bolognese mannerist, Lorenzo Sabbatini of Judith with the head of Holofernes, now in the collection of the Banca del Monte di Bologna e Ravenna, Bologna. According to Gori Gandinelli, the painting belonged to the family Bianchetti from Bologna. It was lost any track of painting, until in the Gabinetto delle Stampe in Milan appeared a painting listed as the same of the Bianchetti collection. The identification doesn't appears certain, and the picture could be a copy of Sabbatini. Compared to the original model, the engraving has some differences that could be explained by assuming that Augustine had available a preparatory drawing of Sabbatini, now lost. In the print, missing the decoration of the table's edge, and the expression of the face of Judith is kinder and heroic than the painting; the voluminous folds of the robe wearing give her more largeness than the model. The Old Testament narrates the episode of Judith: the Assyrian army has besieged the city of Bethulia. Its population cannot hold out any longer and is on the point of surrendering. The rih and beautiful widow Judith devises a plan to save her city. Making himself alluring, che journeys to the enemy camp with her maidservant and, pretending to have deserted her people, approaches General Holofernes. Spending several days in the camp, with the excuse of proposing a plan to conquer Betulia, Judith causes Holofernes to fall in love with her. He invites her to banquet. At the edn of the feast, Judith fatally stikes the general, who is overpowered by drink. She severs his head, and her maidservant places the trophy in a bag. The two women move quickly through the camp and return to the city of Betulia undetected. The death of Holofernes causes confusion among the Assirian, who flee ans persued by the Israelitian. The next morning Judith has the severed head of Holofernes set up on the wall of Bethania. Judith embodies the power of the people of Israel to defeat the enemy, though superior in numbers, by means of cunning and courage. (Judith ch. 10 - 13). Many great artists have been inspired by the Judith's history, including Mantegna, Titian, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Klimt. Bartsch, XVIII.4; Le Blanc, I.4; Gori Gandinelli, p. 317, n. III; De Grazia, Le Stampe dei Carracci, p. 93 n. 35. Dimensioni 223x305. 223 305

        Caliari

      1580. La Raccolta di le piu illustri et famose citta di tutto il mondo, edita da Francesco Valegio a Venezia verso la fine del' 500, comprende circa 322 piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo conosciuto. Di questo volume si conservano diversi esemplari, tutti con numero variabile di incisioni e tutti privi di un indice a stampa. Inoltre gran parte delle tavole contenute nella raccolta del Valegio furono inserite nella Nuova raccolta di tutte le più illustri et famose città di tutto il mondo curata da Donato Rasciotti ed edita alla fine del sedicesimo secolo. Tuttavia è persino incerto quale delle due raccolte venne per prima alla luce ed ignote sono le datazioni di tutte le tirature conosciute. Francesco Valegio nasce a Bologna circa nel 1560, anche se alcuni studiosi gli accreditano un'origine veronese; la sua attività di incisore ed editore calcografo si svolge tutta a Venezia, spesso in associazione con altri stampatori. Le tavole che compaiono nelle Raccolta, che senza dubbio possiamo considerare come la sua operà più importante, sono tutte prive di data, ad eccezione di quelle di Algeri, Costantinopoli e Rodi, firmate da Martino Rota, che recano la data 1572. Le piante e le vedute firmate dal Rota, incisore nativo di Sebenico attivo a Venezia fino al 1573, costituiscono senza dubbio il nucleo più antico dell'opera e fanno ritenere che questa sia stata un progetto editoriale iniziato proprio dall'incisore dalmata. La presenza di questa tavole aveva portato in un primo momento a datare l'opera al 1579, data che sembra tuttavia molto improbabile. Molte delle immagini riprendono modelli figurativi apparsi nei primi volumi del Civitates Orbis Terrarum editi tra il 1572 ed il 1588 (e successivamente ristampati sino al 1617) dai cartografi Georg Braun e Franz Hogenberg. E' pertanto molto più plausibile che il Valegio iniziò verso il 1580 ad osservare le tavole incise da Martino Rota, per poi ampliare e pubblicare la raccolta, nell'ultimo ventennio del secolo. Nell'intero corpus di incisioni che la compongono 112 recano la firma o la sigla del Valegio, altrettante sono assimilabili alla mano dello stesso, mentre 69 sono ascrivibili ad altro artista, non identificato. La Raccolta ebbe un grande successo, tanto che fu la base di diverse copie nei secoli successivi. I rami del Valegio furono in seguito ristampati da Raffaello Savonarola (Lasor a Varea) nel Universus Terrarum Orbis del 1 713. Il gruppo di 52 tavole riguardanti la penisola che in seguito presentiamo, costituisce l'intero corpus di immagini riguardanti l'Italia, ad eccezione delle piante di Ascoli e Ferrara, mancanti. Elemento particolare che caratterizza i fogli è la presenza di un numero progressivo (da 1 a 60) ad inchiostro antico, posto nel margine bianco superiore. Pertanto si può supporre che questi esemplari provengano dalla Raccolta delle più famose Città di Italia, che il Valegio creò alterando semplicemente il frontespizio della precedente pubblicazione. Incisioni in rame, al bulino, bellissime prove particolarmente nitide e contrastate, con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Molto rare. Bibliografia: Almagià p. 10, Cremonini p. 15/17, Valerio p. 75/87. La Raccolta di le piu illustri et famose citta di tutto il mondo, published by Francesco Valegio in Venice towards the end of the XVI century, containing about 322 plans and views of the main cities of the World. There are different examples of this work, every one with a different number of plates and without an index. Many of these plates have been afterwards included in Donato Rasciotti's Nuova raccolta di tutte le più illustri et famose città di tutto il mondo, printed at the end of the XVI century. It is still, however, quite unclear whether Valegio or Rasciotti published first his collection. Francesco Valegio was born in Bologna around 1560, even though some say he might have been born in Verona; as engrver and calcographer, he worked in Venice, very often in association with other publishers. The plates of his Raccolta, which can be considered his most important work, do not bear any date, except for those of Algeri, Costantinopoli and Rodi, signed by Martino Rota, dated 1572. The city plans signed by Rota, (engraver born in Sebenico who worked in Venice until 1573), are the most ancient core of the work, which make us think that this work has been planned by Rota himself. Many plates recall the figurative models of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum printed between 1572 and 1588 (afterwards reissued until 1617) by Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg. It is therfore possible that Valegio started to select the plates by Rota around 1580 and afterwards enlarged his collection at the end of the century. 112 plates bear Valegio's signature or monogram and as many can be ascribed to him; 69 have been ascribed to an unkwown artist. The collection was extremely successful and became the base for the following copies. Valegio's plate have been reissued by Raffaello Savonarola (Lasor a Varea) in the Universus Terrarum Orbis in 1 713. There are 52 plates depicting the peninsula. A distinctive element of this corpus is the presence of a number (from 1 to 60) with ancient ink, on the white upper margin; that makes us presume that these examples come from another collection of Valegio, "Raccolta delle più famose Città di Italia", which he created by changing the front page of his previuos publication. Copper engravings, particularly rich and with good contrast, in excellent condition. Very rare. Venezia Venice 130 85

        San Domenico

      1580. "Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1580, priva di firma. Da un soggetto di Bartolomeo Spranger. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ""scudo con lettera M e stella"" (carta italiana databile a circa il 1580), rifilata al rame, tracce di colla al verso, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'opera deriva da un disegno di Spranger, oggi conservato a Chicago. Il soggetto venne per la prima volta interpretato da Cornelis Cort, con un'incisione realizzata a Roma e datata 1573. Hollstein descrive quattro derivazioni dell'incisione del Cort, tutte realizzate all'estero da A. Wierix, J. Sadeler e C. Mellan, ignorando l'esistenza di questa derivazione italiana, la prima in ordine cronologico. L'opera, probabilmente realizzata a Venezia verso il 1580 (come dimostra anche la filigrana), è probabilmente edita da una delle fiorenti tipografie veneziane del periodo, quali quelle di Donato e Luca Bertelli o Nicolò Nelli. Possibile inoltre che si tratti di una prova di stampa, avanti il nome dell'editore, che sarebbe dovuto apparire lungo la linea orizzontale appena accennata in bassoa destra, a circa due centimetri dalla base. Magnifica prova di questa rara incisione, sconosciuta ai repertori." "Etching with engraving, circa 1580, without printing details. After Bartolomeo Spranger. A great impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with ""shield with star an letter M"" watermark (italian paper of XVI century), trimmed to the platemark, very good conditions. The work derives from a drawing by Spranger, preserved today in Chicago. The subject was first engraved by Cornelis Cort, with a work made ??in Rome and dated 1573. Hollstein describes four copy after Cort, all made abroad by A. Wierix, C. Mellan, J. Sadeler, ignoring the existence of this Italian derivation, probably the first in chronological order. The work, probably made ??in Venice around 1580 (as evidenced by the watermark), is probably edited by one of the flourishing Venetian printers of the period, such as those of Donato and Luca Bertelli or Nicolò Nelli. Also possible that this is a proof, forward the name of the publisher, who was to appear along the horizontal line just mentioned in bassoa right, about two inches from the base. Magnificent example of this rare engraving, unknown to the literature." Sconosciuta ai repertori. (The New Hollstein - Cort - p.126, 106). 212 322

      DSB IV, p. 552; VD 17, 23:297705X (2 copies); WorldCat (3 copies). Rare first and only edition of a work solving a mathematic problem concerning the calculation of compound interest, by Johann Faulhaber (1580-1635), teacher of mathematics at Ulm. Faulhaber, trained as a weaver under his father, soon turned to mathematics. He became the most important of the "Cossists", mathematicians concerned with algebra in the 16th century. After publishing his first arithmetic text, Faulhaber founded his own school in Ulm in 1600, which gained international fame as an educational institute for higher mathematics and later also an artillery and engineering school. He taught Descartes and had a lively contact with Keppler. Faulhaber was also the first to introduce logarithms into Germany and was much in demand as fortification engineer, receiving many assignments in this field from the King of Sweden and others. He published numerous mathematical works, mostly in German, and invented several instruments.With library stamps. In good condition, with some worm holes in the gutter margin, not affecting the text, and some minor water stains.

        de gli arcibravi Paladini.

      Nelle quali intenderete i poltroneschi assalti, le ladre imprese, i porchi abbattimenti, i brutti gesti, li scostumati vitij, e goffe nomee. Nuovamente poste in luce. In Firenze, Appresso Giovanni Baleni, s.d. (ma ca. 1580), - in-8, ff. 4 n.n., legatura d'amatore del XIX secolo in marocchino granata, fleuron impresso in oro al centro dei piatti. Edizione di mitica rarità (apparentemente non censita in nessuna Biblioteca pubblica italiana) di questo componimento eroicomico in due libri in complessive 64 ottave su due colonne. Al titolo magnifica silografia (mm 86x112) raffigurante probabilmente Carlo Magno in trono circondato dai suoi Paladini, il tutto entro bordura geometrica. Si conoscono almeno quattro ristampe di questo componimento nel XVI secolo, tutte rarissime ed edite a Firenze: la prima del 1568 senza note tipografiche, cui seguirono la presente, quella del 1582 del Pagolini e quella, di nuovo del Baleni, del 1597. Nella prima edizione e in quelle successive si fa esplicito riferimento alla fonte ariostesca di questo anonimo componimento ''Con alcune stanze d'Orlando alla Birresca'', invece taciuta nella presente edizione. L'anonimo autore parafrasa infatti i più dolci tormenti d'amore dell'Orlando Furioso trasfigurandoli nelle sofferenze dei debitori perseguitati dai birri (''.d'haver tanti suoi debiti à pagare/da quel martir, da quella frenesia/da quella gente detta Birreria''). Più precisamente vengono riprese la prima e seconda ottava del Canto 31, la prima del Secondo e la quinta del 30simo. ''Le edizioni di questo poemetto sono assai rare. Essendo le prime tre ottave del medesimo simili a quelle che si leggono in altro libretto citate dalla Crusca col titolo di Stanze del Poeta Sciarra (Pietro Strozzi) fu la prima operetta da taluno confusa con la seconda. si descrivono in essa con istile bernesco varie imprese di carlo Magno e de' suoi Paladini'' (Storia ed analisi degli antichi poemi di cavalleria, IV, pp. 222-223).

      Large woodcut printer's device on each title & numerous woodcuts & illus. and printed tables in the text. 470, [7] pp., one blank leaf; 217, [1] pp., two leaves of dedication. Two parts in one vol. Large 4to, cont. binding from the south of France of red morocco (rather browned throughout as always with this book due to the quality of the paper, some minor worming towards end touching a few letters & carefully repaired), arms in gilt on covers of François de Rignac (1580-1663; see below), roulette border in gilt round sides, spine gilt. Frankfurt: J.G. Schönwetter, 1648. First edition of this collection of writings on the famous new star of 1572-74 (first part) and the equally famous comet of 1577 (second part); this edition, containing two of Tycho's most important works, is rare on the market. It was his observations of these two astronomical phenomena -- here printed -- that compelled Tycho to abandon the Aristotelian theory of the universe and replace it with his own geoheliocentric system. This was an enormously important step in the acceptance of the Copernican doctrine. Many of Tycho's instruments -- sextants, quadrants, and various armillae -- are well-illustrated here. This copy belonged to François de Rignac (1580-1663), attorney general of the Cour des Aides de Montpellier and bears his arms on the red morocco covers (Olivier-Hermal-de Rotton, pl. 1902). The binding of this superb copy is typical of the workshops of the south of France, especially that of Corberan, the binder for Peiresc. Though François de Rignac married a certain Jeanne de Fabry in 1627, she was apparently not closely related to Nicolas Fabri de Peiresc, a native of Aix, even though this copy could imply family ties. In 1682, according to Léopold Delisle, Colbert received a gift of one hundred and four manuscripts of Mr. de Rignac, councilor to the Cour des Aides de Montpellier and heir to the books of François de Rignac. In their Histoire du Languedoc Vic and Vayssète relate that in 1677, Étienne Baluze had already discovered the library of the "late Mr. de Rignac." It is most unusual to see this book is such a fine contemporary binding. In this copy, the two leaves with the dedication are bound, as is often the case, at the end of Part II (like the Harvard copy). Preserved in a box. ❧ Houzeau & Lancaster 2704. For de Rignac, see Guigard, II, p. 413. .

        KREUTTERBUCH

      Strassburg: Josias Ribel, 1 August, 1580. First Edition with these Illustrations n. This is a really excellent copy of one of the most famous herbals of the 16th century, with pleasing hand coloring and with the first appearance of the charming "Pantry" woodcuts, in a binding by a known 16th century master. Lutheran pastor and physician Hieronymus Bock (1498-1554) was, with Brunfels and Fuchs, one of the three founders of botany. Educated at the University of Heidelberg, he became physician to the Count Palatine and tended the kitchen garden at the palace, where he would have grown many of the plants described here. Bock surpassed Brunfels and Fuchs as a botanist, for rather than relying on the classical descriptions of Dioscorides and Pliny as the others did, he observed the plants in nature and wrote about what he saw. As a result, Bock's work has, for example, a detailed description of lily-of-the-valley, whereas Brunfels can only tell us that the classical authors are as "silent as fishes" regarding that plant. Bock's "Kreutterbuch" ["Herbal"] first appeared in 1539 with no illustrations, because the author had no money to hire an artist or to purchase existing woodcuts. This was, in Arber's words, a "blessing in disguise, since it stimulated him to deal with plant form as expressively as possible in words. His descriptions of flowers and fruits are sometimes excellent [as a consequence], and the way in which he indicates the general habit is often masterly." Still, the public demanded that herbals have pictures, so a Strassburg artist named David Kandel (1520-92) was retained by the publisher to provide illustrations under Bock's supervision for the 1546 edition. The herbs and flowers in the first two sections are largely copied from Fuchs and Weidlitz, but Kandel redesigned those in book III (on shrubs and trees), adding such whimsical touches as rabbits, monkeys(!), a stag and a squirrel, as well as an intriguing scene featuring a devil fleeing from a rooster. Strassburg physician Melchior Sebitz (1539-1625) revised the present edition, adding Bock's fourth book (the "Pantry"), which had first appeared in an unillustrated 1550 edition, but is here enhanced with delightful illustrations that give us a glimpse of food production and markets in the 16th century. Among its lively scenes, we see a dairy, a bakery, a beekeeper, a winery, a butcher's slaughterhouse, a fish market, and a "farmers' market" with large baskets of produce on display. The impressive binding here is the work of a binder identified by Heinrich Endres as the Würzberger Meister, Jakob Preisger (fl. 1576-1613). Preisger was also a bookseller, and he bound books for the university and bishop of Würzberg as well as for monasteries in the area. Among publications for adults, herbals received harder use than perhaps any other volumes except cookbooks, so most copies get used to death or show up now only in lamentable condition. We were able to trace just two other copies of the present edition at auction since 1975, and both were incomplete (the last complete copy sold in 1972).. 348 x 225 mm. (13 5/8 x 8 3/4"). 30 p.l., 450, [23] leaves. Revised by Melchior Sebitz. First Edition with these Illustrations. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY BLIND-STAMPED PIGSKIN BY Jakob Preisger (roll signed with initials "I. P."), covers framed by multiple decorative rolls, including one with putti, one with medallions, and one with the allegorical figures of Caritas-Spes-Fides-Justitia, central panel stamp of Justice, raised bands, metal corner guards, two original (and one later) brass catches, remnants of a later leather thong. WITH 577 WOODCUTS, ALL COLORED BY A CONTEMPORARY HAND, 19 of these the "Speiskammer" ["Pantry"] illustrations by Tobias Stimmer and Christoph Maurer, used here for the first time. Title page with partially removed early ownership inscription; 1681 ink inscription of a German monastery (Kloster Schwarzach?) regarding acquisition of the volume; rear free endpaper and rear pastedown with later (18th century?) German ink notations; rear pastedown also with neatly written contemporary Latin instructions for making vinegar from sour wine; occasional early ink marginalia; three pages with words or short passages marked through in ink by a later user. Nissen "Herbals of Five Centuries," pp. 66-67; Nissen BBI 182; Pritzel 866. For the binding: Haebler I, 332 #2 and 333 #IV. A couple of small gouges to rear cover, spine rather soiled and crackled, but the binding quite sound, the stamps giving the impression of carved antique ivory. A3 with old repair obliterating seven words of text, leaves a shade less than bright, occasional marginal stains or thumbing, but about as fine a copy as one could hope to find of a frequently consulted 16th century herbal, with nothing approaching a serious defect, the text generally clean and fresh, and the hand coloring quite attractive.

        The Beehive of the Romish Church 1580

      Hardcover. Good. Important 1580 The Beehive of the Romish Church by important reformer Philip Van Marnix (1505-1598). He studied theology under John Calvin and Theodore Beza and then returned to the Netherlands to further the cause of the Reformation there.While exiled for his faith, he authored the present, a biting satire on the busyness of the Romish Church. Housed in original vellum, it does lack a title and two woodcuts before the epistle. However, in the original binding and text complete... very scarce in any condition. This perhaps one of the wittiest productions of the latter reformation. Very attractive, with faults, but reasonable at this price. A copy of his catechism and Psalms from 1589 is available elsewhere at over $5,000!

        DE LA DEMONOMANIE DES SORCIERS

      Paris: Jacques du Puys, 1580. FIRST EDITION n. Reflecting the author's strong need to protect society from sorcery, this is the first appearance of a manual for judges in witchcraft trials and a landmark work notable for its particularly hard-line support of the prosecution and persecution of witches. French jurist Jean Bodin (1529-96) was highly educated in the humanist tradition, and his works on political philosophy and economics were much respected and highly influential--which makes his belief in witchcraft and strong support of witch hunting all the more puzzling and lamentable. As judge in numerous witch trials, Bodin formulated one of the earliest legal definitions of a witch: "one who knowing God's law tries to bring about some act through an agreement with the Devil." Robbins describes him as "an unmitigated bigot" who did not shrink from torturing women, children, or invalids in order to obtain confessions. According to Bodin, normal protections afforded criminal defendants must be dispensed with, as "not one out of a million witches would be accused or punished, if regular legal procedure were followed." Death by burning was the appropriate punishment, and any judge who did not impose a sentence of death on a sorcerer should, in Bodin's view, be put to death himself. Because of his prominence as a scholar, Bodin's writings on witchcraft were persuasive at a time when skepticism about the supernatural was on the rise, and "Demonomanie" had appeared in 20 editions in four languages by 1600. Our sought-after first printing is rare in the marketplace: only seven copies have appeared at auction since 1975.. 229 x 152 mm. (9 x 6"). 14 p.l., 252 leaves. FIRST EDITION. 18th century brown calf, covers gilt with single fillet border and central arabesque, raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with gilt floral ornament, gilt titling. With woodcut printer's device to title page. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of F. Renard; title page with ink notation dated 1609 and ink library stamp. Caillet 1269; Yve-Plessis 843. Spine and head of rear board lightly sunned, joints a little worn, extremities a bit rubbed, leaves a shade less than bright, isolated minor foxing or rust spots, occasional wormholes in gutter margin (not affecting text), other trivial imperfections, but still an excellent copy, generally clean and fresh with ample margins.

        De Concepti et generatione hominis: de matrice ab euis partius.

      Sigusmund Feyerabend, Frankfurt 1580 - ILLUSTRATED BY JOST AMMAN 4to. ff (vi) 100. Italic letter. t.p with attractive bedroom scene of a successful delivery, 1/2 page arms of the dedicatee on next, more than twenty quarter to full page woodcuts of foetuses, birthing scenes, infants, obstetric equipment, twins, monsters and the female anatomy, by the celebrated illustrator Jost Amman. Uniform light paper browning, four leaves foxed, a good copy in its original limp vellum. First edition illustrated by Jost Amman of Rueff's celebrated manual of obstetrics, which "contains the first true anatomical pictures in an obstetrics book," Garrison & Morton. The text is an improved version of Rösslin's 'Der Swangern Frauen' but its importance to the embryologist lies in Rueff's illustrations which show contemporary ideas about mamalian embryology (see G & M 463), and which corrected many of Rösslin's more fantastic images. "Jacob Rueff, city physician of Zurich was responsible for the instruction and examination of the midwives of the canton. He followed the example of Rösslin and in 1554 completed his popular guide for midwives, which next to Rösslin's 'Rosengarten' became the most important obstetrical work of the Renaissance period, and with Jost Amman's fine woodcuts it is ranked as one of the most famous illustrated medical books of the sixteenth century. The book is addressed not only to midwives, pregnant women and women in childbed but also physicians and the council of scholars in general. copies [were sent] to all midwives and nurses in the canton and they were obliged to have an appropriate section of it read aloud 'by a well-read woman', if possible during any confinement they attended. Most of the illustrations. are considerably improved as they were all redrawn by Amman. His own splendid woodcuts (none of which are signed) added to the 1580 edition of Rueff, gave a good idea of sixteenth century obstetric practice endowed with a "homely charm", Itagela, "The Birth of Mankynde", pp18-25. Remarkably, it remained a practical work of medical reference well into the 18th century. BM STC Ger p.759. Fairfax Murray Ger II 372. Durling 3981. This edn not in Wellcome or Osler.

        Variarum lectionum libri XV ... accesserunt hac editione hymni sacri, & varia eiusdem auctoris poëmata.

      First edition of Muret's classical commentaries to include the Hymni. The Variae, first published complete in 15 books in 1580, include excerpts from and explanations of both Greek and Latin texts, especially Cicero. A separate title-page introduces the Hymni (verses recited on specific holy days), followed by poems about illustrious contemporaries of Muret's -- e.g., Raphael -- and an index to the previous 15 books. The French humanist Muret (1526-85) has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used as a model for students. Greatly admired for his excellent understanding and interpretation of classical texts, he was dubbed "le meilleur orateur du temps" in Italy and France by Montaigne, whom he tutored; and Scaliger mused that Muret "satirised the Ciceronians and at the same time expressed himself in a thoroughly Ciceronian style." LIke most of Muret's published work, these Variae are based on his academic lectures; however the scholar Lambinus accused Muret of plagiarism, and indeed it seems Muret "borrowed" bits from his work without permission. (In retaliation, Lambinus published their personal correspondence.) Muret's personal life was fraught with tribulation stemming from multiple accusations of homosexuality in various cities where he resided. From 1559 till his death, however, he lived in Rome under the protection of at least one cardinal and a pope.The text is in Latin and Greek, printed in roman and italic, with decorative headpieces and floriated initials. A letterpress diagram on p. 547 shows the Greek alphabet corresponding to numerals. Provenance: John Saltar (19th-century adolescent's signature, front pastedown); Henry Johns Gibbons, Rittenhouse (Philadelphia), 1923 (signature, front fly-leaf verso).
