Rueff&#39;s most important contribution to medical science was his work in midwifery, De conceptu et generatione hominis. This early textbook became required reading for the midwifes of Zurich and was an important work for over a century with the last edition appearing in 1670.

        Dialogo en Laude de la Mugeres Intitulado GINAECEPAENOS

      Milan: Michel Tini, 1580. Hardcover. Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (8) ff., including woodcut author portrait in elaborate frame on verso of title, [1]-103 [ie 107] ff., (4) ff. [Index], without final blank. Bound in black crushed morocco signed &#39;Brugalla 1946&#39; on inner dentelle. Gilt emblem and two ex libri of Isidor Fernandez on front end pastedown. A well washed copy. Lower edge of title re-margined, without loss; a few places where washing has made ink bleed, a few others with one or two letters replaced in facsimile (see 29, 74, 99.) Rare first and sole edition of this Spanish &#39;defence&#39; of Early Modern women, flying in the face of traditional Spanish conservativism, with its theologically based penchant for misogyny. Writing against the traditional approach to women as inherently corrupt and corrupting, Espinosa here cautiously offers alternative theses to dismiss many allegations against the women, as well as pointing out the numerous instances in which females do display virtue, and even &#39;competence in government&#39;. Espinosa&#39;s treatise is structured as a Platonic dialogue between two earnest young men, Philodoxo and Philalithes. Upset by his wife&#39;s delivery of a baby girl, Philodoxo rails against all women, accusing them of causing wars, deceiving their husbands, and being inferior to men in both strength and intelligence. It is up to Philalithes to enlighten his friend, refuting him on several historical points and giving positive examples of the piety, prudence, and learning of women. However, the author remains cautious and continues to retail a certain amount of traditional prejudice : Philalithes is careful throughout the work to warn his companion against all manner of masked women, wandering women, acquisitive women, and indeed good-looking older women. "During the period of the Counter-Reformation, people formulated their questions about women and men according to this view of God&#39;s order. Those two young men in Espinosa&#39;s Dialogo spoke for many as they focused on the distinction between good and evil women. Far more than mere idle chatter about women, their conversation epitomized the significance of gender for this period. They never doubted that the evil woman could undermine an entire social order, God willing or not." (Perry, Gender and Disorder in Early Modern Seville, p. 177) Some of Espinosa&#39;s polemical methods are certainly questionable - for example, rather than singling out women as the sole perpetrators of evil acts, he presents to readers a full catalogue of barbaric atrocities committed by men as well! These are rather interesting for including a wide, and indeed international variety of ethnographic subjects: the cannibals of Guatemala, the &#39;pados&#39; of the East Indies, the Caribes, and the human sacrifices of the Mexicans (ff. 18-19) are all held up as cultural reference points for the contemporary European. Espinosa&#39;s exotic examples crop up throughout his work and have been noted with interest by recent commentators; his chief source seems to have been Oviedo. Espinosa&#39;s work appears to be among the first, if not the first, published treatise promoting women&#39;s status in the Spanish language - characteristically the last place to adopt any modernizing reforms in Early Modern Europe. We are aware of two further treatises following Espinosa&#39;s 1580 work: the Varia historia de illustres mujeres of Perez de Moya (1583), and the Tratado en loor de las mujeres by Cristobal de Acosta (1592). OCLC locates 3 US copies (Berkeley, Newberry, S. Florida). We have also located a copy at the Hispanic Society. The work has been the subject of much modern interest, eliciting several reprints since the late 19th century. * EDIT 16 CNCE 18293; Palau 82, 723; Brunet .492; Gay I.895; Penny, HSA, p. 190.

Le Liver des Assises & Plees del Corone, Moves & Dependauntz Devaunt les Iustices Sibien en Lour Circuitz Come Aylours, En Temps le Roy Edwarde le Tierce, Ouesque un Table des Principal Matters del Plees del Corone. London: In Aedibus Richardi Tottelli, 1580. [xxxvi], cccxxvi, [10] ff. Folio (11" x 7-1/2"). Contemporary paneled calf with corner fleurons enclosing large blind-stamped central arabesques flanked with the initials L B, rebacked, raised bands and lettering piece to spine, faint early hand-lettered title to edges of text block, endpapers renewed. A few scuffs to boards, some rubbing to extremities with some wear to edges, corners bumped and rather worn, hinges partially cracked. Title page printed within attractive woodcut architectural border, woodcut decorated initials. Light toning to text, faint dampstaining and worming to margins of some leaves, some soiling to title page. Owner signature (of John Hawley dated 1644) to foot of title page, brief annotations to a few leaves. An appealing copy. * Later edition, one of two issued by Tottell in 1580. A selection of reports for 1-50 Edward III (1327-1377), the Book of Assizes, is one of the most important of the Year Books and of unique value to the study of English legal history. As Stanley Milsom has observed, it is the "only collection of reports from the country," that is the only collection of reports from the justices on assize (circuit) rather than in the central courts at Westminster. It is therefore "rich in apparent curiosities" because "it reports processes we do not otherwise see, on circuit, before juries." The first edition was printed in 1514 by John Rastell. OCLC locates 5 copies of the 1580 edition in North American law libraries (Boston College, Harvard, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania).

        Discours Admirables, de la Nature des Eaux et Fonteines, tant naturelles qu&#39;artificielles, des metaux, des sels & salines, des pierres, des terres, du feu & des emaux. Avec plusieurs autres excellens secrets des choses naturelles...Le Tout dressé par Dialogues, lesquels sont introduits la theorique & la practique

      8 p.l., 361, [23] pp. Small 8vo, cont. flexible vellum, ties gone. Paris: Martin le Jeune, 1580. First edition, and a splendid pure copy in its first binding, of a rare and important book in the history of chemistry, hydrology, geology, agriculture, etc., etc. Palissy (ca. 1509-89), who is best known for his discovery of the secret of enamelling pottery, was far in advance of his time in scientific ideas. The "Discours admirables, probably incorporates Palissy&#39;s Paris lectures. It...deals with an impressive array of subjects: agriculture, alchemy, botany, ceramics, embalming, engineering, geology, hydrology, medicine, metallurgy, meteorology, mineralogy, paleontology, philosophy, physics, toxicology, and zoology. The book is divided into several chapters, the first and longest of which is concerned with water. The others take up metals and their nature and generation; drugs; ice; different types of salts and their nature, effects, and methods of generation; characteristics of common and precious stones; clay and marl; and the potter&#39;s art... "Palissy&#39;s views on hydrology and paleontology, as expressed in the Discours, are of particular interest. He was one of the few men of his century to have a correct notion of the origins of rivers and streams, and he stated it forcefully, denying categorically that rivers can have any source other than rainfall... "Palissy discussed fossils extensively...[He] held other advanced views. From experimentation he concluded that all minerals with geometric crystal forms must have crystallized in water; his classification of salts was nearly correct; and he suggested the concept of superposition for the development of sedimentary rocks... "Palissy was probably one of the first men in France to teach natural sciences from facts, specimens and demonstrations rather than hypotheses."-D.S.B., X, pp. 280-81. In the eighth section, Palissy investigated the hardness and properties of gems and precious stones. The Discours was written in the form of a dialogue between "Theory" and "Practice" and it is always "Practice" that instructs "Theory." A fine copy in its first binding, preserved in a box. Contemporary signature on title of "G. Passart" (maybe) and with a number of knowledgeable contemporary notes in many margins. This book is extremely rare; Ferguson acquired his copy, now in the University of Glasgow, after years of searching and has written on the flyleaf: "At last, after long, long waiting and watching." It is one of the very few books in Denis Duveen&#39;s collection of which he reproduced the title-page in his Bibliotheca Alchemica et Chemica. &#10087; Adams, The Birth and Development of the Geological Sciences, pp. 90, 261, & 446-48. Brunet, IV, 319-20 & Suppl., II, 133-"une pièce aussi intéressante que rare." Duveen, p. 446-"A book of great importance in the history of chemistry and science generally." Geikie, The Founders of Geology, pp. 104 & 118. Hoover 621. Partington, II, pp. 69-77. Zittel, pp. 18 & 132. .

        La pesca delle perle

      Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium Di ritorno ad Anversa dal suo lungo viaggio in Italia, lo Stradano conobbe Philip Galle, già allievo di Hieronimus Cock e da poco dedito all?arte dell?editoria. I due proggettarano la produzione di una serie di soggetti venatori, ispirati agli arazzi della villa di Poggio a Caiano. Il Galle all?inizio diede alla luce una serie di incisioni senza numerazione, alla quale fece seguita una seconda stesura composta da frontespizio e 44 tavole numerate. La fortuna immediata dell?opera convinse l?editore a proseguire la collaborazione con lo Stradano che venne così impeganto nell?esecuzione di nuovi disegni, con temi venatori esotici ed inusuali. Questo nuovo ciclo fu dapprima pubblicato separatamente, ed in seguito unito al precedente, costituendo al vasta serie di 104 tavole, intitolata appunto Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae. La serie è databile tra il 1578 (data sul frontespizio) e 1596. Come già gli arazzi della villa di Poggio a Caiano, l?opera è raggruppata per argomenti suddivisi in tre vaste categorie: animali terrestri, d?aria e d?acqua. All?inizio le scene di caccia furono incise dallo stesso Philip Galle che successivamente impiegò altri membri della sua famiglia ed assistenti vari quali Adriaen e Jan Collaert, Theodor e Cornelis Galle e Carolus de Mallery. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini, leggeri segni di usura nell?angolo inferiore destro di alcune tavole, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Dimensioni circa 256x201. Hollstein VII p. 81, 528-567; A. Baroni Vannucci, pp. 371 ? 389. Once back in Antwerp, after a long trip to Italy, Stradano met Philip Galle, former pupil of Hieronumus Cock, who had recentely devouted himself to the art of printing. They planned together the realization of hunting subjects, inspired by the tapestry of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano. At the beginning, Galle realized a series of engravings without numbers, to which a second edition followed, with title page and 44 numbered plates. The sudden fame of his work convinced the printer to go on with his cooperation with Stradano, who realized new drawings with uncommon and exotic hunting subjects. The new series was published first separately, then together with the first edition, forming a wide series of 104 plates, named Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium, Pugnae. This work can be dated between 1578 (on the front page) and 1596. As for the tapestry of the Villa in Poggio a Caiano, the work is divided in three wide categories: terrestrial, air and water animals. At the beginning the hunting scenes have been engraved by Philip Galle himself, who then hired other members of his family and other assistants, among which Adriaen and Jan Collaert, Theodor and Cornelis Galle and Carolus de Mallery. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper, with margins, light signs of wear on lower right conrner of some of the plates, small repairs perfectly executed, in general in good condition. Dimensions circa 256x201. Hollstein VII p. 81, 528-567; A. Baroni Vannucci, pp. 371 ? 389. Baroni Vannucci 93

        San Domenico scaccia il demonio

      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.

Greek and Latin parallel-text. (36), 771, (1), (42, -Index), (2) pp.. The very rare editio princeps of Plotinus' hugely influential "Enneads", the sum up of the foundation of Neoplatonism, being the first printing of the original Greek text of the "Enneads", accompanied by Ficino's Latin translation. During the Renaissance a profound interest in the teachings of Neoplatonism emerged, centered and focusing on Plotinus and his "Enneads". Neoplatonism came to hugely influence Renaissance philosophy, science, humanism, and theology, and much Renaissance thought stemmed directly from the reading of Plotinus, making the editio princeps of this text one of the foundational works for the development of modern thought. "The Renaissance... recognized no deep divide between Plato's teachings and those of the Neoplatonists. This blurring of categories was particularly momentous for the fifteenth century when an immense Neoplatonic literature -several times the size of the Platonic corpus- also became known. A primary task of translation for Ficino was the "Enneads" of Plotinus, one of the subtlest and most penetrating philosophical works of late antiquity and one that played a major role in the destiny of Renaissance Platonism." (Copenhaver & Schmitt, Renaissance Philosophy, p. 15). Plotinus (204-270) "may justly be regarded as the true founder of Neo-Platonism, in so far as he perpetuated its principles in a written form" (Sandys, I:343). In the class-room of Plotinus a new and original approach was taken to the interpretations of the later Platonic and Aristotelian commentators; these groundbreaking new ideas and interpretations have been preserved as the "Enneads", the magnum opus of Neoplatonism, divided in to six groups of nine books. It is Plotinus' student, Porphyry (ca. 233-301-5) that we have to thank for the preservation of these founding books of Neoplatonism. Neoplatonism is a term invented in the 18th century for a school of religious and mystical philosophy, which was founded in the third century and which dominated down to the end of Antiquity in the sixth century, when the Emperor Justinian closed the Neoplatonic Academy (529). Neoplatonic teaching revolved around a renewed study of the teachings of Plato that were now combined with the doctrines of other schools of Greek philosophy. The school called itself Platonic, but modern historians named it "Neoplatonic" in order to emphasize its differences from Plato. Plato's dialogues were the main philosophical authority, but Plotinus, Ammnius and the other Neoplatonists attempted to fit all of Plato's scattered doctrines into a coherent system and to incorporate other Stoic and Aristotelian ideas into this, thus creating a comprehensive synthesis of Greek thought. As such, Neoplatonism came to dominate the final phase of ancient philosophy and bequeathed its heritage to subsequent ages. Neoplatonism must be considered the only really original product of Greek philosophy in the third century, and after having been neglected during the Middle Ages, this original philosophical direction was re-discovered in the Renaissance, the philosophy of which came to be hugely dominated by it. As the actual founder of Neoplatonism, Plotinus, in his "Enneads", added to the genuine Platonic elements a more explicit emphasis on a hierarchical universe, which consists of several levels, beginning with the transcendental One. Plotinus' original idea of the supreme "One" that is totally transcendent, which contains no division, multiplicity or distinction and which is prior to and different from everything that exists came to bridge the gap between progressive Christian and Gnostic ideas and traditional Platonic philosophy. Ficino himself had tried to Christianize the original doctrines of Plato, but in spite of this it was obvious that Plotinus' "Enneads", with the hypostases of the One, Soul and Mind, posed a better resolution to the problems of Trinitarian theology. The common grounds of the Christians and the Neoplatonists meant that Plotinus' work may be said to have influenced 16th century thought more profoundly than the actual writings of Plato himself. Plato in the Neoplatonic version was perfectly suited for 16th and 17th century Europe.With much of Renaissance Platonism thus rendered through Plotinus, the "Enneads" came to profoundly influence not only Renaissance philosophy and theology, but also art and science of the 16th and 17th centuries; "Of even greater interest is the impact of Renaissance Platonism upon sciences... in medicine, astrological and alchemical theories exercised a good deal of influence during that time... yet the main impact of Platonism, as might be expected, was felt in mathematical sciences, which had been most cultivated and respected by Plato and his followers." (Kristeller, Renaissance Thought and its Sources, pp. 62-63). Much knowledge of Plato in the Renaissance was rendered through especially Plotinus and Ficino, and the publication of this editio princeps of the Greek text of Plotinus incorporating Ficino's translation of it must be said to have been of the utmost importance to the development of late Renaissance thought, philosophy and science. Platonism had of course also earlier played an enormous rôle in philosophy and thought in general, but with the publication of the original Platonic texts and the translations of them, the intellectual world changed, and the influence of the availability of the original texts must not be overlooked. The scarce edition princeps was based upon four anuscripts. Brunet calls determines it very rare: "Première édition, assez rare". Sandys II:105; Graesse 5:352 ; Brunet IV:727 ; Adams P:1597
