        FRANCISCUS DRAECK NOBILISSIMUS EQUES ANGLIAE IS EST QUI TOTO T TERRARUM ORBE CIRCUMDUCTO...

      [Nuremberg, 1581. Etched illustrated broadside on two joined sheets, 29 x 57 cm. Minor wear at lower left and upper right corners. Small rust spot in the text. Near fine. Framed, glazed, and matted. A very rare portrait of Sir Francis Drake on a German broadside, celebrating his circumnavigation of the world and so most likely published after 1580. It is one of the very few lifetime portraits of Drake and is a marvelous representation. Drake is shown full length, in armor, holding a firearm, standing at a port, also illustrating three men loading a ship, with two columns of German poetry in the center. Another copy of this broadside is in the John Carter Brown Library, a gift of Henry C. Taylor in 1944. The two columns of German poetry in the center refer to Drake's recent return from his voyage and invoke the image in the broadside of him loading his ship with powder to fight the enemies of Christendom. It then warns soldiers not to act as mercenaries for non-Christians. As Drake never fought the Turks nor any non-Christian government, it seems likely that the author of this broadside sought to exploit Drake's fame as a privateer and successful military leader for Queen Elizabeth, as a model for Germans to serve Christendom in the war against the Turks. Andresen ascribes the etching to Balthasar Jenichen (fl. 1563-92, died before 1621), a prolific artist of Nuremberg. Drugulin describes a copy with that artist's name inscribed in the plate, "B. Jenichen fec.," and a copy of the unsigned state appeared in Ludwig Rosenthal catalogue 85 in 1892 as item 427, from which it was sold to the Germanisches Nationalmuseum. Rosenthal assigned to the etching a date of circa 1568, which seems impossible given the inscription. Our copy is the state without the artist's name, as is the copy at the John Carter Brown. The most extensive discussion of Drake portraiture, in Wagner, does not mention this example. None of the examples reproduced there, painted or engraved, show the same treatment of the face, though the pose and type of armor are reminiscent of the famous "Hondius" portrait. In his discussion of the John Carter Brown acquisition, Lawrence Wroth notes that a copy of the portrait alone is noted in the Gardiner Greene Hubbard collection in the Library of Congress. He also notes that from that copy the portrait was reproduced by John Fiske in his BEGINNINGS OF NEW ENGLAND (1898), the only instance of its use known to Wroth. It is not listed in O'Donaghue's CATALOGUE OF ENGRAVED ENGLISH PORTRAITURE IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM. A fine copy of an extraordinary illustrated broadside, of the greatest interest for the early history of world travel and exploration.

        Il Trinciante di m. Vincenzo Ceruio, ampliato, et ridotto a perfettione dal caualier Reale Fusoritto .. In Venetia, appresso gli Heredi di Francesco Tramezini, 1581

      Tramezzino eredi, 1581. in - 4, ff. (4), 44, legatura coeva cartone rustico. Impresa dello stampatore al titolo; illustrato da 1 tavola ripieg. f.t. (in antico facsimile) e 2 silografie n.t. (f. 6 r e v). Editio princeps di uno dei più importanti testi di gastronomia del Cinquecento, il primo libro ''entièrement consacré au tranchage et à l'art de servir'' (Une affaire de gout. Talbot Gernon n. 30). Nella dedica il Fusoritto spiega i motivi che l'hanno indotto a rivedere il testo, lasciato incompiuto dal Cervio, suo predecessore nella carica di Trinciante presso il Cardinale Farnese. ''Ciò che pose il trattato del Cervio su un piano più elevato rispetto ai trattati precedenti e che nello stesso lo consacrò ad un successo lungo quasi due secoli, fu la vastità degli argomenti trattati, facendo ricorso ad esempi pratici di taglio di una straordinaria chiarezza'' (Et coquatur ponendo, p. 365). Dopo una prima parte in cui si forniscono le nozioni generali necessarie a chi voglia servire come Trinciante, Cervio polemizza con alcuni colleghi italiani ed europei sostenendo che più che Trincianti ''di ragione li potremmo chiamare macellai''. Interessante la parte in cui si descrivono gli strumenti da analizzare; viene poi descritta l'arte del taglio dividendo gli alimenti in tre parti (carni, pesci e frutti). L'opera ebbe alcune ristampe, spesso insieme al testo dello Scappi. La maggior parte del volume è dedicata a spiegare come tagliare i volatili, l'agnello, il maiale e i pesci, mentre tra i frutti ampio spazio è riservato al melone. Due tavole raffigurano coltelli e forchette, rare sulle tavole del XVI secolo e generalmente in uso solo agli addetti al taglio, mentre una spiega le parti dei volatili. Buon esemplare con antica nota di possesso al titolo ''Hieronymi Corneji de..''.

      Antonio Canacci & Erasmo Viotti, 1581. In 8° (mm 190x145); carte 8 nn. di dediche a Carlo Emanuele di Savoia da Angelo Ingegneri (nella lettera riporta "Parma il primo di Febbraio 1581...Angelo Ingegneri"), ai Lettori e al Libro. Pagg. 254, (2 di registro, colophon ed errata). Impresa editoriale al frontespizio in silografia raffigurante unicorno entro ricca cornice e motto, altra impresa molto ricca di dettagli al colophon, incisa in legno, diversa da quella iniziale. Testo incorniciato da doppio filetto. Grandi vignette racchiudono eleganti capilettera con motivi fitomorfi, testatine e finalini. Legatura in marocchino rosso d'amatore del XX secolo, dorso a cinque nervi con scomparti incisi a secco, fregi floreali dorati, titolo e data impressi in oro come i cantonali ai piatti che racchiudono un riquadro con doppio filetto a secco, tagli e dentelle dorate, sguardie marmorizzate.Venti canti in ottave, dove si raccontano gli ultimi mesi della prima crociata (1099); si alternano vicende vere e storiche, mutuando da Orazio il rapporto tra insegnamento morale e piacevolezza letteraria, a episodi di pura invenzione. Nel 1580, durante la dolorosa permanenza di Tasso a S. Anna, venne pubblicata una prima edizione pirata, scorretta e non completa da Celio Malespini a Venezia da un manoscritto, senza il consenso dell'autore (Serassi la qualifica " rara e interessante, ma molto sciagurata, scorretta e manchevole quasi d'une terza parte del poema"): era mutila dei canti XI, XIII, XVII, XVIII, XIX, XX (il XV e il XVI erano incompleti) e recava il titolo di Goffredo, e Tasso ne ebbe gran dispiacere; cosi l'anno successivo, appunto nel 1581, l'amico Angelo Ingegneri si mise al lavoro per restituire una versione più vicina all'originale (lo riscrisse in sole sei notti). Con il titolo cambiato esce La Gerusalemme liberata in questa raffinata edizione di Casalmaggiore per i tipi di Canacci e Viotti; nello stesso anno, in marzo, come si evince dalla lettera dedicatoria, esce successivamente a Parma con piccole differenze e correzioni. Rara, seconda edizione,(come riporta Gamba 945) in elegante veste tipografica, di questo poema storico - cristiano, il cui apice è nel canto XIII, quando Dio stesso interviene per mutare l'andamento della storia, facendo trionfare l'esercito cristiano. Il testo di quest'edizione, genuino, come la mente dell'autore lo concepì, non riporta gli interventi di censura e le correzioni (anche già nell'edizione di Parma del 1581, dello stesso anno della nostra, furono apportate delle modifiche), operati a partire successivamente. Ottimo esemplare. Adams 235; Gamba 945 ; Brunet, V, 664 - 665; Cat. Tassiana di Bergamo n. 153

      Sebastiano Martellini, 1581. 4to. (10) leaves. Title - page printed in red and black with the woodcut coat - of - arms of Cardinal Antonio Colonna. Boards, sober margins, but a good copy.ORIGINAL EDITION of the description of the festivities held in Macerta at the entry of newly elected governor of the Marche, Cardinal Marcantonio Colonna (1523 - 1597). The author reports in detail about the events and the decorations organized for the occasion (cf. R. Paci,ed., Scritti storici in memoria di Enzo Piscitelli, Rome, 1982, p. 229, and P. Cartechini, ed., La Marca e le sue istitutioni al tempo di Sisto V, Rome, 1991, p. 368).Marco Antonio was born in Rome in, the son of the Roman nobles Camillo and Vittoria Colonna. He was the grand - nephew of Cardinal Pompeo Colonna and studied philosophy and theology under Felice Peretti (who later became Pope Sixtus V). In 1560 he was elected to be Archbishop of Taranto and was active in the Council of Trent during 1562 - 63. Pope Pius IV made him a cardinal priest in the consistory of March 12, 1565. He received the red hat and the titular church of Santi Apostoli on May 15, 1565. He participated in the papal conclave of 1565 - 66 that elected Pope Pius V. On 13 October 1568 he was transferred to the metropolitan see of Salerno. In 1572 he participated in the papal conclave that elected Pope Gregory XIII. He resigned the government of the Archdiocese of Salerno sometime before 25 June 1574. During the Jubilee of 1575, he opened the holy door of the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. He was the Camerlengo of the Sacred College of Cardinals from 8 January 1579 to 8 January 1580. On 5 December 1580 he opted for the titular church of San Pietro in Vincoli. He was named papal legate in the Marche on October, 25, 1581. He participated in the papal conclave of 1585 that elected Pope Sixtus V. On October 13, 1586 he opted for the titular church of San Lorenzo in Lucina and became cardinal protopriest. Under Pope Sixtus V, he was a prefect of the Sacred Congregation of the Index. On May 11, 1587 he opted for the order of cardinal bishops, taking the suburbicarian see of Palestrina. He was named papal legate to the Campagne and Maritime Province on May 13, 1587. He was a participant in the first papal conclave of 1590 that elected Pope Urban VII, the second papal conclave of 1590 that elected Pope Gregory XIV, the papal conclave of 1591 that elected Pope Innocent IX, and the papal conclave of 1592 that elected Pope Clement VIII. He also was the Librarian of the Vatican Library from 1591 to 1597. He died in Zagarolo on March 13, 1597 and was buried in the Franciscan church there (cf. G. Crisci, Il cammino della Chiesa salernitana. Napoli Roma 1976, I, pp. 585 - 598, and C. Weber, Legati e governatori dello Stato Pontificio: 1550 - 1809, Rome, 1994, pp. 181, 286 and 588 - 589).Nearly nothing is known of Marcello Ferro, a man of letters from Macerata, who was also the author of a pastoral play, Chlori, first printed at Venice in 1590 and reprinted in 1598. He also was a member of the Accademia dei Catenati of Macerata founded in 1574 (cf. M.

Pagina del titolo e il margine p.7 restaurati con carta antica. Tre wormholes, la pagina di titolo al genere p.70.Le Macaronic creato dall'autore stesso è una poesia burlesca non scritta in latino imprevedibile, ma in un basso latino, latino di gergo dialettale miscelazione di Mantova e italiana. La pseudonimo dell'autore significa Merlin cuoco, e macaronicorum sono maccheroni. Questo monaco spretato racconta la storia di Baldus e le sue avventure nomadi. L'episodio del gigante Sunder e ingannevole Cingar, probabilmente servito come ispirazione per François Rabelais, che si basa in modo significativo sulla vita dei meno Folengo e il suo stile burlesque, praticando l'enumerazione e l'eccessiva presa in giro diffusa. Folengo morì nel 1544 opere di Folengo è uno dei più originali delle creazioni italiane letteratura rinascimentale. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après la première collective parue à Venise en 1564.

Le pseudonyme de l'auteur signifie Merlin le cuisinier, et les macaronicorum sont un plat de macaroni. Ce moine défroqué nous conte l'histoire de Baldus et ses aventures nomades. L'épisode du géant Fracasse et du fourbe Cingar, a probablement servi de source d'inspiration à François Rabelais, qui s'est notablement inspiré de la vie du moins Folengo et de son style burlesque, pratiquant l'énumération à outrance et la raillerie généralisée.

        Les vrais pourtraits des hommes illustres en pieté et doctrine, du travail desquels Dieu s'est servi en ces derniers temps, pour remettre sus la vraye religion en divers pays de la Chestienté. Avec les descriptions de leur vie et de leurs faits plus memorables Plus, quaratequatre emblems chrestiens. Traduicts du latin de Théodore de Bèze.

      Jean de Laon, 1581. 4to (mm 201x145), late 19th - century green morocco, gilt inside dentelles, gilt edges (Niedrée), (8), 284, (4) pp. With 49 full - page woodcut portraits and XLIII woodcut emblems. Section titles, portraits and emblems within ornamental borders. With pastedown and note (1918) by Theo Koerper. A very good copy.RARE FIRST FRENCH EDITION containing 12 additional portraits compared to the first Latin edition printed by de Laon in the same year (Icones, id est verae imagines virorum doctrina simul et pietate illustrium). The text was translated into French by Simon Goulard (1543 - 1628), pastor in St. Jervais, presbyter, and Bèze's successor as moderator in the Venerable Company of the Pastors.The work is dedicated to the young King James VI of Scotland, in whom Bèze celebrates the chief of a new protestant nation. In the dedication Bèze mentions his friends G. Buchanan and P. Young, who were James' tutors, and other English and Scottish figures who had moved to Geneva, like Ch. Goodmann, J. Knox, H. Scrimger, and A. Melville. Finally he explains that his work was conceived as a complement of Jean Crespin's Histoire des martyrs (1554). The Icones (or Vrais pourtraits) is an extremely innovative work, which can be read both as a protestant martyrologium and an emblem books, but it is much more then that. The first part, containing the portraits of martyrs and other personalities, is divided into eleven geographical areas and, within each area, the names are arranged in alphabetical order. The structure works like a memory theater that helps to memorize the exemplar lives of the characters described. The choice is very personal insofar it includes catholic names as Francis I and Erasmus and even eretical personalities such as Michel de l'Hôpital. Also the exclusion of the Fathers of the Church is quite striking. The second part is a collection of emblems relating to Protestantism.&ldquo,This is a work in which word and image interrelate in what are innovative ways&hellip, In Icones, both the first part of the book (that properly constitutes the Icones itself) and the (appended or, as I argue, commenting and concluding) collection of emblems, demonstate the characteristics of what I have called extrusion: the self - designation of one or more elements, and the singling - out, by one part of the text, of another section. Rather than work to create a smooth surface in which word and image can slide together to form a hieroglyph, then, Icones acts in two ways. First, it is at times a text that competes with itself: word and mage struggle within it for primacy and do not always act in lockstep to produce meaning. The competition mirrors the relationship between Bèze's words and the words of the martyrs. Secondly, parts of the text create a mirror - effect, reflecting in their structure certain portions of the earlier text. The concluding emblems can indeed be seen as metatext&hellip, The speaking body will not be recuperated, as in Crespin, by the compilation of textual fragments. Rather than quote or memorialize through citation, Bèze hopes to create a dynamic verbal and visual theater through the emblematic body. The words of the martys will speak through the interpretation and careful reading of Bèze tripartite text&hellip, The Jesuits accused Bèze of himself practicing the very idolatry he condemns. Yet Bèze does not conceive of his Icones as idols&hellip, De Bèze includes woodcuts combined with tales of the martyrs to cause word and image to conjoin to produce a presence with whom he may converse&rdquo, (C. Randall Coats, Memorilizing the Martyr: Word, Image, and the Emblematic Body in Théodore de Bèze's &lsquo,Icones', in: &ldquo,(Em)bodying the Word. Textual Resurrections in the Martyrological Narratives of Foxe, Crespin, de Bèze and d'Aubigné&rdquo,, New York, 1992, pp. 85 - 115). Théodore de Bèze was born in Vézelay in Burgundy. His formal education began in 1528, when he, scarcely nine years old, was sent to Orléans to study under the German scholar Melchior Volmar (1497 - 1561). Under his tutelage Bèze was introduced to Latin, Greek, and other subjects proper to a humanistic education, including law. More importantly, Volmar taught Bèze to read the Scriptures from a new perspective, and to look on certain Catholic doctrines and institutions with a critical eye. When in 1530 Margaret of Angoulème, sister of François I, invited Volmar to join her court at Bourges, Bèze followed him. Here, in the house of his teacher, Bèze first met Jean Calvin, with whose life he would later eventually be inextricably bound. After the Affair of the Placards on October 18, 1534, which turned the tide of public opinion against Protestantism, Bèze's life dramatically changed. Volmar returned to Germany and Bèze was sent by his father to study law in Orléans. He obtained his license in law in 1539, at which time he departed for Paris where life and career were already being prepared for him. Almost immediately after the publication of the Poemata (1548), a severe ill struck Bèze down. Scarcely had he gained the strength to walk again when he fled Paris and made his way to Geneva, where he arrived in late October, 1548. He was received by Calvin, who had met him already in Volmar's house. At this time Bèze was involved in the controversy following the burning of Michael Servetus at Geneva on October 27, 1553. In defence of Calvin and the Genevan magistrates, Bèze published in 1554 the work De haereticis a civili magistratu puniendis. In 1558 Bèze was given the chair of Greek in the newly established academy of Geneva, and after Calvin's death also that of theology. He was also obliged to preach. He completed the revision of Pierre Olivetan's translation of the New Testament, begun some years before. More important than his polemical activities was Beza's statement of his own confession. It was originally prepared for his father in justification of his actions and published in revised form to promote Evangelical knowledge among Beza's countrymen. It was printed in Latin in 1560 with a dedication to his teacher Volmar. The death of Calvin occurred on May 27, 1564. As a matter of course Bèze became his successor. Until 1580 Bèze was not only moderateur de la compagnie des pasteurs, but also the real soul of the great institution of learning at Geneva which Calvin had founded in 1559, consisting of a gymnasium and an academy. As long as he lived, Bèze was interested in higher education. As Calvin's successor, Bèze was very successful, not only in carrying on his work but also in giving peace to the Church at Geneva. After the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre (1572), he used his influence to give to the refugees a hospitable reception at Geneva. In 1574 he wrote his De jure magistratuum, in which he emphatically protested against tyranny in religious matters, and affirmed that it is legitimate for a people to oppose an unworthy magistracy in a practical manner and if necessary to use weapons and depose them. In the following years he participated to all the important synods and colloquies, but then his activity was confined more and more to the affairs of his home. He was active in teaching until January 1597. He died in Geneva in 1605. (cf. A. Dufour, Théodore de Bèze, poète et théologien, Genève, 2006, passim, and Thédore de Bèze (1519 - 1605), Actes du Colloque de Genève, Septembre 2005, publiés par l'Institut d'histoire de la Réformation, Travaux d'Humanisme et Renaissance, no.

        Asia secunda pars terrae in forma Pegasir

      1581. La mappa di Bunting è una delle prime rappresentazioni cartografiche dell'Asia nella forma del mitico cavallo alato, Pegaso. Il cavallo è disegnato abbastanza realisticamente, con una buona dose di immaginazione necessaria per visualizzare la mappa. La testa rappresenta l'Asia Minore con la bocca formata da Istanbul. Le ali contengono Asia centrale e Siberia. Il Mar Caspio appare orizzontalmente tra le ali e la sella. La Persia è delineato sul DORSO?? del cavallo, mentre le zampe anteriori formano l'Arabia. Le zampe posteriori rappresentano l'India e la Malesia. Secondo la mitologia greca, Pegaso, figlio di Poseidone e di Medusa, domato da Atena, divenne il cavallo delle Muse. E' indubbiamente curioso che un'immagine di origine pagana sia stata utilizzata in un'opera sulla Terra Santa. L'Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura è stato pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1581 e quindi ristampata in dieci edizioni diverse. Xilografia, finemente colorata a mano, restauri perfettamente eseguiti ai laiti, nel complesso in buono sttao di conservazione. "Bunting's map of Asia in the shape of the mythical winged horse Pegasus is among the earliest cartographic. The horse is drawn fairly realistically, with a good deal of imagination required to view the map. The head represents Asia Minor with the mouth at Istanbul. The wings portray Central Asia and Siberia. The Caspian Sea appears horizontally between the wings and the saddle. Persia is delineated on the horse blanket with the forelegs forming Arabia. The hind legs represent the Indian and Malay peninsulas. The winged horse of Greek mythology is the son of Poseidon and Medusa, was tamed by Athena and became the horse of the Muses. This obviously pagan origin of the image makes its appearance in a Holy Land travel book a bit of a mystery. A very famous, rare and curious cartographic representation of Europe from Bunting's Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura. For this map Bunting chose a design originated by Joannes Bucius in 1537. Europe is here in a shape of woman wearing a crown of Spain, France and Germany form the neck and bust, Bohemia the heart, Italy the left arm holding an orb (Sicily) and Denmark the right arm holding a scepter with Britain as the flag. The remainder of the figure is a flowing robe with Greece and Russia at the feet. It seems to personify a Spanish domination of Europe under the reign of Philip II. The representation has also identified as Mother Church and a tie in with the mythical princes Europa who was raped by Zeus. The earliest depiction of Europe as a woman is believed to be by the 14th Century Pavian Cleric Opicinus de Canistris for the papal court, then at Avignon. The woman represents the Mother Church, who is being seduced from the true path. In 1537 the Tirolese cartographer Johann Putsch celebrated the Hapsburg rule over Europe by presenting a placid ""Europa Regina"" wearing Charles V's Spain as a crown and Ferdinand's Austria as a medal at her waist, representing the triumph of the Hapsburgs. Later editions of Europe as a queen were issued by Sebastian Münster, Heinrich Bunting, and Matthias Quad. The Itinerarium Sacrae Scriptura was published for the first time in 1581 and aftewards re - issued in ten different editions. Fine later hand colouring, perfectly executed repairs at the left and right margins, otherwise good conditions. Advertising" Magdeburg Magdeburg 360 245

        A DIALOGUE BETWEENE EXPERIENCE AND A COURTIER, OF THE MISERABLE STATE OF THE WORLDE

      Thomas Purfoote, London 1581 - 188 x 144 mm. (7 1/2 x 5 5/8"). 4 p.l., 140 (i.e. 148) leaves. Attractive 19th century black crushed morocco by Riviere and Son (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in), covers with panels framed by blind and gilt rules, gilt trefoil tool and anular dot at each corner, raised bands, spine in gilt-ruled compartments with trefoil centerpiece, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt. Title within ornamental border, small decorative woodcut initials. Printed in black letter type. Front pastedown with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie; front free endpaper with armorial bookplate of Sir Richard Newdigate dated 1709; a few pages with ink annotations in a contemporary hand. STC 15678; See also: Longman "Bibliotheca Anglo-poetica," pp. 190-2. Corners slightly rubbed, top margin trimmed a bit close, occasionally touching running title, leaves just a shade less than bright, a few spots of foxing and soiling, otherwise an excellent copy--with few signs of use--of a book expected to be found in poor condition. Originally published in 1554 and commonly referred to as simply "The Monarche," this didactic poem played an important role in the Protestant Reformation in Scotland. Lindsay here criticizes various doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church including the concept of purgatory, the popular custom of pilgrimages to venerate saints, and even the papacy itself. Longman (quoting Heron's "History of Scotland") notes that "this poem probably contributed in an eminent manner to inflame that spirit of religious reformation, by which the Papal establishment was within no long time after overthrown." Indeed, in the years and centuries following the author's death, this particular work became the subject of increasing interest and popularity as the reform movement in Scotland picked up serious momentum and created real change, with reforms adopted by Parliment as early as 1560. This publication includes four other poems by Lindsay that echo this same spirit; while none of them matches the length and ambition of "The Monarche," many of them anticipate its strongly reformist overtones by emphasizing the responsibilities (and sometimes the abuses) of both the ruling powers and the clergy. A firm believer in the power of the vernacular, Lindsay originally composed this work in the "Scottish tung," praising the language's "utility in making important matters accessible to the populace as a whole and not just a narrow educated élite." (DNB) Despite his populist leanings, Sir David Lindsay (ca. 1486-1555) remained largely in the favor of the Scottish Court, first under James the V and then under the Earl of Arras, regent to the infant Mary I. As a writer, Lindsay enjoyed popularity and respect in his own time, but his contributions have been somewhat overlooked by modern historians. Fortunately, as the DNB notes, "recent criticism . . . suggests that [he] may again be coming to receive due recognition as a gifted artist as well as one of the most popular and eloquent voices of the Scottish Reformation." Early editions of this work are extremely rare.

        Il Trinciante di m. Vincenzo Ceruio, ampliato, et ridotto a perfettione dal caualier Reale Fusoritto .

      In Venetia, appresso gli Heredi di Francesco Tramezini, 1581, - in-4, ff. (4), 44, legatura coeva cartone rustico. Impresa dello stampatore al titolo; illustrato da 1 tavola ripieg. f.t. (in antico facsimile) e 2 silografie n.t. (f. 6 r e v). Editio princeps di uno dei più importanti testi di gastronomia del Cinquecento, il primo libro ''entièrement consacré au tranchage et à l'art de servir'' (Une affaire de gout. Talbot Gernon n. 30). Nella dedica il Fusoritto spiega i motivi che l'hanno indotto a rivedere il testo, lasciato incompiuto dal Cervio, suo predecessore nella carica di Trinciante presso il Cardinale Farnese. ''Ciò che pose il trattato del Cervio su un piano più elevato rispetto ai trattati precedenti e che nello stesso lo consacrò ad un successo lungo quasi due secoli, fu la vastità degli argomenti trattati, facendo ricorso ad esempi pratici di taglio di una straordinaria chiarezza'' (Et coquatur ponendo, p. 365). Dopo una prima parte in cui si forniscono le nozioni generali necessarie a chi voglia servire come Trinciante, Cervio polemizza con alcuni colleghi italiani ed europei sostenendo che più che Trincianti ''di ragione li potremmo chiamare macellai''. Interessante la parte in cui si descrivono gli strumenti da analizzare; viene poi descritta l'arte del taglio dividendo gli alimenti in tre parti (carni, pesci e frutti). L'opera ebbe alcune ristampe, spesso insieme al testo dello Scappi. La maggior parte del volume è dedicata a spiegare come tagliare i volatili, l'agnello, il maiale e i pesci, mentre tra i frutti ampio spazio è riservato al melone. Due tavole raffigurano coltelli e forchette, rare sulle tavole del XVI secolo e generalmente in uso solo agli addetti al taglio, mentre una spiega le parti dei volatili. Buon esemplare con antica nota di possesso al titolo ''Hieronymi Corneji de.''. Westbury 45-46. Vicaire, p. 159B.I.N.G. 454. Bitting 81, nota. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A DIALOGUE BETWEENE EXPERIENCE AND A COURTIER, OF THE MISERABLE STATE OF THE WORLDE

      London: Thomas Purfoote, 1581. n. Originally published in 1554 and commonly referred to as simply "The Monarche," this didactic poem played an important role in the Protestant Reformation in Scotland. Lindsay here criticizes various doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church including the concept of purgatory, the popular custom of pilgrimages to venerate saints, and even the papacy itself. Longman (quoting Heron's "History of Scotland") notes that "this poem probably contributed in an eminent manner to inflame that spirit of religious reformation, by which the Papal establishment was within no long time after overthrown." Indeed, in the years and centuries following the author's death, this particular work became the subject of increasing interest and popularity as the reform movement in Scotland picked up serious momentum and created real change, with reforms adopted by Parliment as early as 1560. This publication includes four other poems by Lindsay that echo this same spirit; while none of them matches the length and ambition of "The Monarche," many of them anticipate its strongly reformist overtones by emphasizing the responsibilities (and sometimes the abuses) of both the ruling powers and the clergy. A firm believer in the power of the vernacular, Lindsay originally composed this work in the "Scottish tung," praising the language's "utility in making important matters accessible to the populace as a whole and not just a narrow educated élite." (DNB) Despite his populist leanings, Sir David Lindsay (ca. 1486-1555) remained largely in the favor of the Scottish Court, first under James the V and then under the Earl of Arras, regent to the infant Mary I. As a writer, Lindsay enjoyed popularity and respect in his own time, but his contributions have been somewhat overlooked by modern historians. Fortunately, as the DNB notes, "recent criticism . . . suggests that [he] may again be coming to receive due recognition as a gifted artist as well as one of the most popular and eloquent voices of the Scottish Reformation." Early editions of this work are extremely rare.. 188 x 144 mm. (7 1/2 x 5 5/8"). 4 p.l., 140 (i.e. 148) leaves. Attractive 19th century black crushed morocco by Riviere and Son (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in), covers with panels framed by blind and gilt rules, gilt trefoil tool and anular dot at each corner, raised bands, spine in gilt-ruled compartments with trefoil centerpiece, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt. Title within ornamental border, small decorative woodcut initials. Printed in black letter type. Front pastedown with bookplate of Robert S. Pirie; front free endpaper with armorial bookplate of Sir Richard Newdigate dated 1709; a few pages with ink annotations in a contemporary hand. STC 15678; See also: Longman "Bibliotheca Anglo-poetica," pp. 190-2. Corners slightly rubbed, top margin trimmed a bit close, occasionally touching running title, leaves just a shade less than bright, a few spots of foxing and soiling, otherwise an excellent copy--with few signs of use--of a book expected to be found in poor condition.

        Dialogo della musica antica, et della moderna

      Florence: Giorgio Marescotti,, 1581. Folio (328 x 215 mm). Contemporary limp vellum. Housed in a brown quarter morocco solander box with chemise made by the Chelsea Bindery. Title within a fine allegorical woodcut border, two engraved examples of musical notation, five illustrations of musical instruments, two full page; one pasted-in woodcut diagram, numerous woodcut text diagrams, some full-page, and woodcut printer's device at colophon. Old ownership inscription on front free endpaper crossed through. Spine with short splits over the cords, top corners worn, missing the original ties. One deletion in ink to two lines on page 70, and the odd marginal note in a contemporary hand. Occasional light spotting, pale damp mark to the upper margin of the first few leaves, and to the lower outer corner, the odd stain, but a beautiful copy, preserved in a custom-made, chemise and morocco backed box. First edition, first issue of Vincenzo Galilei's main work, very scarce on the market. "Vincenzo Galilei, father of Galileo Galilei, the astronomer who disenchanted the universe, was among the first to cut the ancient monochord in a series of experiments conducted in the 1580s, by subjecting instrumental sound to the instrumental reason of empirical science. Indeed, Stillman Drake suggests that Galilei's experiments with sound 'may have led to the origin of experimental physics', inspiring his son to interrogate the world to verify the laws of nature as empirical fact. Galilei wanted to 'demonstrate real things', he said, in the spirit of Aristotle and not the numerical abstractions of Pythagorean mysticism. He collapsed music into 'reality' as an audible fact divorced from celestial values. Galilei in these experiments exercised an instrumental reality in two ways. First, he objectified music as a neutralised matter for experimentation. Numbers were not sonorous in themselves, he claimed, but had to be 'applied to some sonorous body'. Music does not exist as some perfect numerological system out there in the celestial realms as Pythagoras and indeed Galilei's teacher, Zarlino, believed; rather sounds are emitted from bodies whose different components colour the aural perception of their harmonic ratios. Why believe in the ancient ratio 2:1, for example, if, as Galilei demonstrates, the diapason can variously be obtained between strings whose length is in duple proportion, or weights in quadruple proportion? Empirical reality simply did not match up with the ancient integers that were to organise the universe Â… Secondly, having demythologised music with an empirical rationality, he subjects it with an instrumental efficiency that re-tunes music for modern ears. If, as his experiments proved, sounds were necessarily imperfect and unrelated to simple numbers, then there was no reason why the irrational tuning of Aristoxenus, that is equal temperament, should not be imposed upon music played on or accompanied by instruments. Indeed, the chromatic and enharmonic nature of modern music demanded it, and just to underline the point, Galilei composes 'a song' which if sung with perfect intonation would be out of tune with reality: the chromatic and enharmonic clashes of modern harmony can only be eradicated if played on instruments tuned to equal temperament" (Daniel K.L. Chua, Absolute Music and the Construction of Meaning pp. 18-19). "We may recognize in Vincenzo Galilei's insistence both on the complexity and on the discoverable regularities of auditory experience something of Galileo's approach to natural science, and certainly a family likeness in the polemical aggressiveness to be made famous by his son. Vincenzo was skilled lutenist, a mathematician, and musical preceptor to the Florentine musical Academy of the Camerata. Among the manuscripts inherited by Galileo he left a translation of Aristoxenus into Italian, and he explicitly followed the example of Aristoxenus in trying to build musical science up from auditory sensation, instead of imposing on it a rigid mathematical scheme in the style of the Platonists. One of his discoveries, described in his last published work and last manuscripts, was that the traditional ratio 2 : 1, said to have been shown by Pythagoras to produce the octave, did so only with lengths of strings in that ratio: for the tension of strings the octave ratio was 4 : 1. His ratio for organ pipes was less happy. He poured scorn on the universal harmonies attributed to nature by the Platonists. Even when we knew the mathematical ratios, he pointed out that we could not always determine the quality of our sensations. This was an observation to be developed by Descartes in distinguishing within the 'perfection' or 'douceur' of consonances between objective mathematical simplicity and subjective pleasure, between 'ce qui les rend plus simple et accordantes, et ce qui les rend plus agréables à l'oreille'. It was precisely when Vincenzo was doing this work that Galileo made his retreat from Pisa in 1585 and lived mainly in his father's house in Florence, before returning to Pisa as lecturer in mathematics in 1589. He reported what were evidently Vincenzo's results in his Discourses on Two New Sciences (1638), before giving his own proof that the musical intervals were ratios of frequencies and his own physical explanation of resonance, consonance, and dissonance" (A.C. Crombie, Science, Optics and Music in Medieval and Early Modern Thought pp. 367-368).
