Diana SCULTORI (Mantova ante 1530- Roma 1588)
Bulino, 1581, firmato e datato in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel secondo stato di cinque, con l'indirizzo di Claudio Duchetti, sicuramente antecedente il 1585, anno della scomparsa dell'editore francese. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "rombo nel cerchio" (Briquet 6097), con margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'incisione riproduce senza significative varianti la statua di Ercole con la clava e i pomi delle Esperidi conservata a Roma nei Musei Capitolini. Il basamento invece è d'invenzione di Diana, ove ripete il motivo della clava. La statua è pertinente con l'undicesima fatica di Ercole, che consisteva nel portare ad Euristeo alcune mele d'oro delle Esperidi, custodite da Atlante e dal drago Ladone. Bibliografia: Bellini 52 II/V; Bartsch 38. "The gilt bronze statue of Hercules on a pedestal holding the golden apples of the Hesperides in his left hand, then in the Foro Boario, now in the Palazzo de' Conservatori. Engraving, 1581, lettered bottom right 'Diana in cidebat 1581', bottom centre 'Claudii Duchetti Formis'. Example of the second state of five, showeing the address of Claudio Duchetti, printed before 1585. A great example, printed on contemporary laid paper with ""rombo nel cerchio"" watermark (Briquet 6097), with margin, perfect condition. After a statue that is virtually the same as that in the print from the Capitoline Museum in Rome (Palazzo dei Conservatori). A very good work." Bellini 52 II/V; Bartsch 38; Huelsen 1921 119 .

Si tratta di una replica della pianta del Duperac - Lafreri, incisa da Ambrogio Brambilla per l'editore Claudio Duchetti. La lastra del Lafreri era stata assegnata, nella divisione ereditaria, a Stefano Duchetti. Questa probabilmente fu la ragione che indusse Claudio a realizzare una nuova lastra dedicata alla ricostruzione del porto di Traiano. L'opera è inserita nel catalogo della vedova di Giacomo Gherardi (n. 178 descritta come "il Porto d'hostia reale") e fu acquistata (1602) da Giovanni Orlandi e successivamente (1614) da Hendrick van Schoel.

Melchior MEIER (attivo in Svizzera tra il XVI ed il XVII secolo)
Bulino, 1581, firmato e datato nella tavoletta in alto a sinistra: FRANC.[ISCO] MED[ICEO]/MA. [GNO] ETRVR. [IAE] D.[UCI] II. P.[ATRONO] B.[ENE] M.[ERENTI]/ 15. D[e]D[ICAVIT] 81./ M. M. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con filigrana "cerchio con aquila, sormontato da corona", rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La dedica è a Francesco de' Medici (1541 - 1587), II Granduca di Toscana, figlio di Cosimo I ed Eleonora di Toledo. In questa incisione, si trovano combinati insieme due contese musicali: quella tra Apollo e Marsia e tra Apollo e Pan. Le fonti classiche narrano, infatti, che il satiro Marsia diventato molto abile nel suonare il flauto, osò sfidare Apollo, dio della musica, certo di poterlo battere. Il dio accettò e chiamò le Muse a giudicare la contesa. Naturalmente ne uscì vincitore e punì il satiro in maniera atroce legandolo ad un albero e scuoiandolo vivo. Nella scena appare anche re Mida chiamato, secondo le fonti a giudicare un'altra contesa musicale, quella tra Apollo e Pan e punito dal dio con delle orecchie asinine per aver ingenuamente dato la vittoria al satiro, che è raffigurato in piedi alle spalle del re. Nelle fonti iconografiche, contrariamente a quelle letterarie, la figura di Mida e quella di Marsia sono frequentemente associate. L'accuratezza anatomica delle figure rispecchia in pieno il gusto tardo cinquecentesco e rivela la competenza dell'incisore rispetto alla materia. La figura di Apollo s'ispira chiaramente alla celebre statua di Apollo del Belvedere (Musei Vaticani) per quanto, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Zapata, Giovanni Battista; Giuseppe Scienza, comp. & ed.
Appresso gli heredi del Bevilacqua, Torino, 1581. EDIT16 says of the obscure author, "[m]edico romano, nato nel 1520 circa. Era ancora in vita nel 1586," and of the compiler of Zapata's teachings, the same source simply says "[m]edico trentino morto nel 1612." The title-page, however, tells us that Scienza was Zapata's "discepolo." This little pocket volume falls squarely in the genre of "books of secrets," that widely popular category of books that appeared in the 16th century and brought compilations of technical and medicinal recipes and magic formulae to the literate population at large. => Books of secrets constituted one of the most widely read genres in early modern scientific publishing and one that was aimed squarely at a general, nontechnical market. The formulae here involve chemical compounds, e.g., the use of rosemary-infused oils, etc., aimed at curing various ailments or alleviating pain or unpleasant conditions. Ferguson writes: "Though this book deals professedly with the treatment of a great number of ailments, and explains the preparation of the necessary remedies, it contains incidentally a good deal of chemistry as applied to pharmacy. This makes it valuable for the history of the science, for here we get the processes employed three hundred years ago for preparing certain well-known compounds, uncomplicated by any theoretical views about elements or transmutation."

Francisci Petrarchae
Sebastianvm Henricpetri, Basileae. In Italian and Latin. Petrarca, Francesco, 1304-1374. Publication date 1581, after the first edition of 1554 by Henrich Petri in Basel, with few corrections. These two editions are still the only two ever to carry his Opera Omnia, which is a strange thing, considering the importance of Petrarca for European though. The love between Basel and Petrarca is old, the first book collecting all the Latin (only) works by Petrarch was printed in 1496 by Johannes Amerbach, Henrich Petri did put together all Latin and Italian works in 1544. Petrarca spent a few weeks in Basel and was impressed by his beauty, one month later, returning from Prague, he came to grief seeing it destroyed by an earthquake. Petrarca speaks about his time in Basel in his work De Otio Religioso. This is an extremely rare edition, the only one in ABe books and other websites. Binding: calf with ink lettering on the spine. Folio, heavy book, 4 books bound in one,Tomus 1: [28], 564 S.; Tomus 2: [2], 567-1131, [1] S.; Tomus 3: 118, [2] S.; Tomus 4: [2], 123-205, [3] With praises by Johannes Herold, Hieronymus Cardanus, Giovanni Boccaccio, Erasmus, Juan Luis Vives, Francesco Florido, Paulus Jovius und Girolamo Squarciafico.Colophon: "Basileae per Sebastianum Henricpetri, anno à virgineo partu M.D.XXCI. mense Martio.", extensive yellowing due to the kind of paper.

In the first issue the dedications of both volumes of the first Aldine edition, printed respectively in 1572 and 1575, have been maintained: volume I was dedicated by Giovanni Battista Caro, Annibal's nephew, to cardinal Girolamo da Correggio (Rome, March 1, 1572); volume II, by Annibal's brother, Lepido, to cardinal Tolomeo Gallio (Rome, November 12, 1575). In this second issue the first quires of both volumes have been completely reset.

TROGUS, Pompey
Parisiis: Dionysium du Val, 1581. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Pompey Trogus Macedonia ROME Justin Nineveh Bongars Universal Histories Pompey Trogus was a Gallo-Roman historian living during the first century BC. He is most remembered for his 'Histories' which discussed the origins of the world, establishment of world empires, and the rise and fall of military powers. Trogus discussed the parts of the world the Alexander the Great conquered, Ninus, the founder of Nineveh, the development of the Assyrian and the Macedonian Empires, as well as extensive coverage of the early Roman Empire. In the centuries following Trogus, the Roman historian Justin edited these 'Histories' and compressed the enormous 44-volume work into a manageable tome with an added preface which explained that he attempted to collect the most important and interesting parts of Trogus's 'Histories.' This highly rare 1581 edition was edited by Jacques Bongars.

Henricus Stephanus, [Genève], 1581. Plein veau de l'époque, filet doré encadrant des plats, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré. Plats supérieurs ornés d'un médaillon végétal central. Un volume in quarto (247x157 mm), (8)-182-(1)-(1bl.) pages / 79-(1bl.) pages. Dos restauré, Les anciens fleurons d'origine ont été réincrustés Deux petites déchirues en marge, avec manque, aux pages 27 et 29. Une déchirure en marge, sans manque à la page 179. Petites salissures aux deux derniers feuillets du volume. Précieuse édition donnée par Henri Estienne. Cet ouvrage contient la première édition critique d'Hérodien (170-vers 250 ap. J.-C.), qui fut l'un des grands historiens de l'Antiquité romaine et l'une des sources historiques importantes pour la période située entre les règnes des empereurs Gordien et Marc Aurèle. Henri Estienne en a retravaillé les traductions latine et grecque, en y ajoutant des commentaires et notes supplémentaires. On y trouve ensuite, avec une paginiation séparée, l'édition princeps des deux premiers livres de l' "Histoire nouvelle" de Zosime (historien grec ayant vécu à la fin du Vèmesiècle et au début du VIèmesiècle). Cet ouvrage est une source historique importante consacrée aux derniers siècles de l'Empire romain d'Occident, qu'il faut toutefois lire et étudier avec un certain recul car Zosime était connu pour être un païen fanatique anti-chrétien. Texte latin et grec sur deux colonnes, en regard. Belles réalisations typographiques de Henri Estienne.

Geneva Bible
London: Christopher Barker, 1581. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Grashop Puritans & Pilgrims An exceedingly rare 16th-century Geneva Bible compete with Old and New Testaments, the Apocrypha, Grashop's Bible Chart, and The Address to the Christian Reader. The Geneva version was translated into English by William Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, and Thomas Sampson. This 1581 printing is exceedingly rare and is printed in double-column, black letter type with verse numbers (The Geneva Bible was the first English Bible to use verse numbers). Each page is filled with references and notes in the margins. Even after the 1611 King James English Bible was published, the Geneva Bible would still be popular edition of the Puritans into the mid-17th-century. The Church of England did not recognize the Geneva Bible as canon and thus had no official status in the English Church; however, all readers of the Geneva Bible were given aid in understanding scripture through the help of T. Grashop's Bible Chart which advises the reader on how to approach the biblical text. This edition includes The "Two right profitable and fruitfull concordances ... collected by R.F. H[errey]" which each have a separate title page, pagination, and signatures.

A Paris, par Nicolas Bonfons, 1581 petit in 8 veau glacé, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (manque A2, la dédicace). Édition originale Histoires tragiques ('tragic stories') were a genre of French fiction in 16th-17th centuries, a Baroque rendering of Boccaccio's type of short stories, concentrating on the dark side of human nature. The progenitor of this kind of a story was Pierre Boaistuau with his translation of Matteo Bandello's Novelli published in French as Histoires tragiques (1559). Boaistuau selected from Bandello six most dark and gorey stories and changed them for his means. He was followed by François de Belleforest who adapted 12 more stories for the new edition in 1570. Those dark mood stories were imitated by writers like Jacques Yver (Le Printemps d'Yver, 1572), Vérité Habanc (Nouvelles Histoires tant tragiques que comiques, 1585), Bénigne Poissenot (Nouvelles Histoires Tragiques, 1586), Alexandre Sylvain (Epitomes de cent histoires tragicques, 1581), and Bruneau de Rivedoux (Histoire véritable de certains voyages périlleux et hasardeux sur la mer, 1599). François de Rosset began to borrow plots for his tragic stories from contemporary crime chronicle (Les Histoires tragiques de nostre temps, 1615), and this innovation proved to be extremely popular. Another important author is Jean-Pierre Camus who adds … [Click Below for Full Description]
