        1581 1st ed Plautus Comedies Greek Roman Latin Theatre Shakespeare influence

      Lugduni, apud Antonium Gryphium, 1581. - 1581 1st ed Plautus Comedies Greek Roman Latin Theatre Shakespeare influence helped influence other writers such as Shakespeare Titus Maccius Plautus (c. 254 – 184 BC), commonly known as Plautus, was a Roman playwright of the Old Latin period. His comedies are the earliest works in Latin literature to have survived in their entirety. He wrote Palliata comoedia, the genre devised by the innovator of Latin literature, Livius Andronicus. The word Plautine refers to both Plautus's own works and works similar to or influenced by his. Denis Lambin (1520 – 1572) was a French classical scholar. We find other mid-to-late 16th-century printings of Plautus’ works for sale for over $1,000! However, we find no other examples of this same printing for sale anywhere else!

        The Strange and Delectable History of the Discoverie and Conquest of the Provinces of Peru, in the South Sea. And of the Notable Things Which Are Found There...

      1581. Small quarto. 100 leaves. Woodcuts on first titlepage and in text. Full gilt morocco by Middleton, spine gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Trimmed close, affecting headlines. Top outer corner of first, illustrated title with small loss, with two letters supplied in expert facsimile. Several small pinholes in illustrated title. Leaf AA2 with outer margin (½ inch) in expert facsimile, affecting outer edge of woodcut but not text. Some leaves with minor staining and soiling. Overall a respectable copy. First English edition of a primary account of Peru The first English edition of one of the most important early histories of the Spanish conquest of Peru, first published in Spanish in 1555. Zarate was sent by the Spanish Crown to Peru to investigate its finances, where he remained for several years as Treasurer-General, charged with looking into the region's financial affairs. He authored the present work from his notes upon his return to Spain. "This work, in four books, is, in fact, the foundation of all the subsequent histories of the events to which it refers, and the narrative is given with force and simplicity. The characters of the different heroes are clearly and strongly drawn, and there is a long, distinct chapter (9 of Book IV.) on the appearance, conduct, and dispositions of Pizarro and Almagro. The accounts of the execution of Almagro, and of the assassination of Pizarro, are written with much spirit and picturesqueness; and the story of the misfortunes and final death of Atabaliba, the young Peruvian Inca, is very touching" - Church. The text is illustrated with interesting cuts, including the famous hill of silver at Potosi (depicted on the illustrated title and again in the text), and one of llamas.

        "Traitte nouveau de l'Hysterotomotokie, ou Enfantement Caesarien, qui est extraction de l'enfant par incision latérale du ventre, & matrice de la femme grosse ne pouvant autrement accoucher. Et ce sans prejudicier à la vie de l'un, ny de l'autre; ny empescher la fécondité maternelle par après... "Paris: Denys du Val, 1581.

      "Very rare first edition of the work which coined the term 'Caesarian section' and was the first to advocate its use, in appropriate circumstances, on a living woman. Only three copies located in auction records, two of which were in modern bindings. This copy is beautifully bound in contemporary gilt vellum and ruled in red throughout.<br/><br/> ❧Garrison-Morton 6236; Wellcome 5593.<br/><br/> "In the year 1581, François Rousset, a Parisian physician published <i>L'hystérotomotokie ou enfantement césarien</i>, suggesting for the first time a 'laparotomy' with hysterotomy in the parturiant who could not be confined in the ordinary way, this of course being done in the last resort. This surgical intervention was not usually performed until then before the woman's death. Rousset is the man who gave this operation the name Caesarean section in memory of the supposed birth of Caesar. In support of this proposal, he gathered ten observations, six of them in which he personally took part without operating himself, as he was not a surgeon. Moreover, he did endeavour, by use of reason as well as authoritative arguments, to produce evidence that this intervention was actually feasible, saving sometimes the mother and child's lives while preserving the possibility of future pregnancy. The last part of the book is devoted to a detailed and meticulous description of the intervention. This revolutionary proposal was coldly received and vigourously opposed by the medical milieu, especially by Ambroise Paré. It was not more favoured in the course of the next two centuries and Rousset was often considered as an impostor, his opposers considering this intervention as inevitably entailing death and its success being miraculous. Those who approved were few and cautious and only exceptionnaly took heed of it. It is only in the nineteenth century that Rousset's book was noticed and acknowledged. Written in French, it was essentially intended for surgeons and won him the name of Father of the ceasarean section" (Francis Pottiee-Sperry, "L'hysterotomotokie ou enfantement caesarien" de François Rousset (Paris, 1581). Le livre d'un imposteur ou celui d'un précurseur?,' <i>Hist. Sci. Med.</i> 30 (1996), 259-68).<br/><br/> "As the earliest advocate of caesarean section on a living woman (in cases where no other means of delivery appeared possible), François Rousset, a 16th-century French physician, defied conventional medical wisdom.

        THE STRANGE AND DELECTABLE HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERIE AND CONQUEST OF THE PROVINCES OF PERU, IN THE SOUTH SEA. AND OF THE NOTABLE THINGS WHICH ARE FOUND THERE

      London, 1581. Small quarto. Full gilt morocco by Middleton, spine gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Trimmed close, affecting headlines. Top outer corner of first, illustrated title with small loss, with two letters supplied in expert facsimile. Several small pinholes in illustrated title. Leaf AA2 with outer margin ( 1/2 inch) in expert facsimile, affecting outer edge of woodcut but not text. Some leaves with minor staining and soiling. Overall a respectable copy. The first English edition of one of the most important early histories of the Spanish conquest of Peru, first published in Spanish in 1555. Zarate was sent by the Spanish Crown to Peru to investigate its finances. He remained there for several years as treasurer-general, charged with looking into the region's financial affairs. He authored the present work from his notes upon his return to Spain. "This work, in four books, is, in fact, the foundation of all the subsequent histories of the events to which it refers, and the narrative is given with force and simplicity. The characters of the different heroes are clearly and strongly drawn, and there is a long, distinct chapter (9 of Book IV) on the appearance, conduct, and dispositions of Pizarro and Almagro. The accounts of the execution of Almagro, and of the assassination of Pizarro, are written with much spirit and picturesqueness; and the story of the misfortunes and final death of Atabaliba, the young Peruvian Inca, is very touching" - Church. The text is illustrated with interesting cuts, including the famous hill of silver at Potosi (depicted on the illustrated titlepage and again in the text) and one of llamas.

Title within woodcut frame, flanked by Moses with the two Tablets of the Law, and King David (McKerrow and Ferguson 117), 7 half-page woodcut illustrations, including of the 'Riche Mines of Potossi', local animals, construction work for a new city, and a horned man (two repeated), woodcut initials throughout.

A good copy in blind tooled diced Russia c1800, covers with gilt lozenge, neatly rebacked, a.e.g. Contemporary marginalia, ex-libris of Boies Penrose on fly, gilt leather ex-libris of Rt. Hon. Thomas Grenville on upper pastedown, 17thC shelfmark in blank upper portion of title. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF ONE OF THE EARLIEST ACCOUNTS OF THE DISCOVERY AND CONQUEST OF PERU. Zarate was sent to Peru by the Emperor Charles V in 1543, as a tax collector to implement the Emperor's 'New Laws'. He was in Lima at the time of Gonzalo Pizarro's revolt, and the work concludes with Pizarro's execution and the subsequent incorporation of Peru into the Spanish Empire in 1548. The first edition, in Spanish, appeared at Antwerp in 1555. This edition is a translation of the first four books of the first edition, with the addition of 'The Discovery of the ritche Mynes of Potosi and how Captaine Carauajall toke it into his power'. The work includes descriptions of the 'people and things beyond the Equinoctiall lines', including Christian and Indian settlements in the mountains of Peru, as well as the history of the Kings of the Incas, but mostly focuses on the course of the Conquests: the towns and villages taken by, and the battles fought by Pizarro and Diego de Almagro. The translation is by Thomas Nicholas, a translator for the Levant Company, who lived for many years in the Canary Isles, until imprisoned by the Spanish Crown in 1560 on charges of 'heresy'. Finally released years later following the intercession of Elizabeth I, he returned to England, where he published three translations, presumably done during his imprisonment. Thomas Grenville (1755-1846), MP and bibliophile was the son, and brother of Prime Ministers. He bequeathed his celebrated library of more than 20,000 volumes to the British Museum. De Ricci remarks of him that he was "a true bibliophile, in the highest sense of the word. He had a feeling for quality equal to that of Cacherode and there is hardly an items in his collection the condition of which was not capable of satisfying the most exacting collector" (de Ricci, English Collectors of Books and Manuscripts 1530-1930, p. 114). Rare. Only one other copy has sold at auction in over thirty years, and RLG records only four (Harvard, Cambridge, New York Historical Society and Yale).

        Missione al Gran Mogor del P. Ridolfo Aqvaviva ... sua vita e morte, e d'altri quattro compagni uccisi in odio della fede in Salsete di Goa.

      Rodolfo Acquaviva (a.k.a., Ridolfo Aquaviva), nephew of Claudio Acquaviva the fifth Superior General of the Society of Jesus (1581-1615), after his Jesuit novitiate was ordained a priest in 1578 at Lisbon and sailed for India. Arriving in India he taught at the Jesuit school (Saint Paul's College) in Goa, founded by St. Francis Xavier and the site of the first printing press in India. In 1580 the Mughal Emperor Akbar the Great summoned him to his court and thus began Acquaviva's mission to the Mughal empire. His was, in fact, the first Jesuit mission there. As Prof. Emerita Frances W. Pritchett of Columbia University writes on her great website (http://www.columbia.edu/itc/mealac/pritchett/00islamlinks/ikram/part2_12.html): "Of all the aspects of Akbar's life and reign, few have excited more interest than his attitude toward religion. . . . [H]e built the Ibadat Khana, the House of Worship, which he set apart for religious discussions. Every Friday after the congregational prayers, scholars, dervishes, theologians, and courtiers interested in religious affairs would assemble in the Ibadat Khana and discuss religious subjects in the royal presence."It was to these discussions/conversations/debates that Acquaviva was invited. The religions represented were many, the major participants including Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Jains, and Zoroastrians. After several months Acquaviva felt his contributions to the debates insufficient to justify continuing as part of the mission and left the task to fellow Jesuits. Returning to Goa his missionary work led him to the Hindu Kshatriyas of Salcette, south of Goa, which proved a fatal decision. Prior to his arrival, the Jesuits with the aid of Portuguese troops had destroyed some temples there; the Cuncolim Revolt of July, 1583, was partially a result of those actions and it was in the revolt that => Acquaviva and the four companions alluded to in the title of this work were murdered. The author of this biography was a major Jesuit historian of the Society's activity in Asia. He was the author of the monumental Istoria della Compagnia di Gesu (1650-1673) in 6 folio volumes, Della vita e dell'istituto di S. Ignatio, fondatore della Compagnia di Gesu (1650), L'Asia (1653), Il Giappone, parte seconda dell'Asia (1660), La Cina, terza parte dell'Asia (1663), L'Inghilterra, parte dell'Europa (1667), L'Italia, prima parte dell'Europa (1673), and biographies of Jesuits Vincenzo Caraffa (1651), Robert Bellarmine (1678), Stanislas Kostka (1678), Francis Borgia (1681), and Niccolo Zucchi (1682). Also of interest are his works on science: Della tensione e della pressione (1677), Del suono, dei tremori armonici, dell'udito (1679), and Del ghiaccio e della coagulatione (1682).This is the second edition of Bartoli's account of Acquaviva and his mission, following the first of the previous year. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC locate just two copies of the 1663 edition, both in the U.S., and similarly only two copies of the 1664 (one in Germany, one at Oxford).

        General Chronica, das ist: Warhaffte und kurtze Beschreibung vieler namhaffter und zum theil bis daher unbekannter Landtschafften.

      Frankfurt, Joh. Schmidt, Sigmund Feyerabend, 1581. - Folio. 3 Teile in 1 Band. (4), 144 (letztes weiß) Bll. mit 32 Holzschnitt-Abbildungen, 94, (2), 45 (3) (letztes weiß) Bll. Blindgeprägter Schweinslederband mit Holzdeckeln und 1 Metallschließe. Sammlung von 3 Drucken von Feyerabend, jeder mit eigenem Titel (mit 1 Titelabb.). Der erste Druck ist eine Übersetzung der berühmten Reiseerzählung von Francisco Alvarez (ca. 1470-1540), der die portugiesische Expedition unter Rodrigo de Lima nach Äthiopien in den Jahren 1520-26 als Kaplan begleitete. Diese Gesandtschaft wurde durch ein Schreiben der äthiopischen Kaiserin Helena, der Großmutter Lebna Dengels ("Priester Johannes"), veranlaßt. Die Reise führte 1520 von Massaua nach Schoa, und sie erreichten über Dabra Libanos das Lager Lebna Dengels bei Taguelat. Alvarez machte zumindest vier Reisen nach Schoa, ehe er 1526 Äthiopien nach Indien verließ. Nach Ramusio war dies der erste Bericht über Äthiopien und sollte zumindest für ein Jahrhundert die wichtigste Quelle über das Land bleiben. 1540 erschien die erste Auflage in Portugiesisch, die jedoch nur einen Teil der verschollenen 5 Bücher von Alvarez darstellt. Alvarez beschreibt die kirchlichen Einrichtungen des Landes, darunter die Felsenkirchen, aber auch die Städte und die Landwirtschaft werden beschrieben. Die historische Geographie verdankt ihm die Erzählung über die Invasion der Somal und Galla. Alvarez berichtet auch über die Länder rund um das Gebiet des Priester Johannes, z. B. Danakil und Godjam. Leider konnte Alvarez keine kartographischen bzw. topographischen Ortsbestimmungen durchführen, dennoch blieb sein Einfluß auf die Kartographie bis auf die Zeiten d'Anvilles und J. Bruces sichtbar (vgl. Henze I, 62ff.). Vorangestellt sind 2 Briefe von Andrea Corsal, die bereits 1516 veröffentlicht wurden. Der Florentiner Corsal beschreibt hier (auf 24 Bll.) vor allem das Gebiet der Roten Meeres, Südarabien (Beschreibung von Aden, Hormuz, Bahrein, Sokotra, Muskat, Oman), Indien, Äthiopien, Persien (Stadt Balsera, Sophi König) und Malacca. - Einband leicht berieben, eine Metallschließe fehlt. Titel mit restauriertem Ausriß, alte Besitzvermerke am Titel und Vorblatt, 1 kl. Wurmlich auf 35 Bl. (jeweils 1 Zeile betreffend), nur leicht gebräunt. Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Exemplar. Kainbacher 15f; Lockot 711, 732; Gay 186; Sabin 974. Cox I, 3 und 22. Gay 3321 (frz. Ausgabe). Der 2. Druck ist eine Übersetzung der Welthistorie von Orosius. Der 3. Druck ist eine Übersetzung des Textteiles von Ortelius Weltatlas in der Ausgabe 1580. - Schweiger 622 (Orosius), nicht bei Adams. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Opus Merlini Cocaii poetae Mantuani Macaronicorum

      Venetiis (Venise): Apud Horatium de Gobbis, 1581. Fine. Apud Horatium de Gobbis, Venetiis (Venise) 1581, In-12 (8x15xm), 541pp., relié. - New edition, after the first collective published in Venice in 1564 Illustrated with 27 vignettes title on wood. It contains Zanitolla, 25 pounds of Baldus, the Moscheide (of the battle flies against ants) epistolarum.Plein soft vellum time. Smooth back. label title later. A hole in the tail. Title page and margin p.7 restored with antique paper. Three wormholes, the title page to the p.70.Le Macaronic genre created by the author himself is a burlesque poetry written not in Latin unpredictable, but in a low Latin, the Latin of slang dialect mixing of Mantua and Italian. The pseudonym of the author means Merlin cook, and macaronicorum are macaroni. This defrocked monk tells the story of Baldus and his nomadic adventures. The episode of the giant Sunder and deceitful Cingar, probably served as inspiration to François Rabelais, which is significantly based on the life of the less Folengo and his burlesque style, practicing the enumeration and excessive mockery widespread. Folengo died in 1544 Folengo's works is one of the most original of the Italian Renaissance literature creations. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après la première collective parue à Venise en 1564. Illustrée de 27 vignettes de titre sur bois. Elle contient Zanitolla, les 25 livres de Baldus, la Moscheide (sur la bataille des mouches contre les fourmis), epistolarum. Reliure en plein vélin souple d'époque. Dos lisse. etiquette de titre postérieure. Un trou en queue. Page de titre et p.7 restaurés en marge avec du papier ancien. Trois trous de vers, de la page de titre jusqu'à la p.70. Le genre macaronique créé par l'auteur lui-même est une poésie burlesque et fantasque écrite non pas en latin, mais dans un bas latin, un latin d'argot mêlant le patois de Mantoue et l'italien. 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. Folengo est mort en 1544. Les oeuvres de Folengo constitue une des créations les plus originales de la littérature italienne de la Renaissance.

        La Gerusalemme Liberata del Sig. Torquato Tasso

      Antonio Canacci, et Erasmo Viotti 1581 La Geusalemme Liberata del Sig. Torquato Tasso tratta da Fedeliss copia, et ultimamente emendata di mano dell' istesso Autore. Ove non pur si veggono i sei Canti, che mancano al Goffredo stampato in Vinetia; ma con notabile differenza d' Argomento in molti luochi, e di stile, si leggono, anco quei Quattordici senza comparatione più corretti. Aggiunti à ciascun Canto gli Argomenti del Sig. Oratio Ariosti. Casalmaggiore, appresso Antonio Canacci, et Erasmo Viotti, 1581. In - 8° (20 x 15), pergamena molle (originale). 8, cc. nn., 254, pp. 2 nn. Grande marca tipografica nel frontespizio ed altra diversa in fine,capilettera figurati ed ornati, cornici silografiche che racchiudono gli argomenti di ciascun canto. Esemplare ben conservato. Una delle più antiche edizioni del Poema del Tasso, succeduta alla sciagurata , scorretta e manchevole edizione di Venezia di soli 14 canti (1580). Essa fu stampata su istanza di Angelo Ingegneri e dall' Autore stesso corretta. Si è molto discusso sulla cronologia delle prime edizioni della Gerusalemme, ma è certo che questa di Casalmaggiore fu iniziata alcuni mesi prima della parmense (uscita contemporaneamente o, secondo alcuni, qualche giorno prima) e volle inoltre essere una vera edizione di lusso, decorata di fregi, inquadrature ed iniziali finemente ornate e stampata in tiratura molto limitata. Solerti, I, 328 e seguenti; Gamba, 945. Guidi pp. 1 / 3.
