La première édition parut en 1556 pour le premier ouvrage et en 1555 pour le deuxième. Ouvrage réunissant les trois textes les plus connus et les seuls imprimés de ses écrits, de l'humaniste et antiquaire Lyonnais Du Choul (1496 - 1560). Biblio : Baudrier IX, 383 ; Brunet, II, 858. Il s'agit de la quatrième édition copiée sur celle de 1567, plus complète. La première datant de 1556. Ce livre célèbre pour l?abondance de son illustration, principalement numismatique (428 revers et 106 droits). Dédié à Claude d?Urfé en remerciement des services rendus à Rome à l?auteur et aux siens, allusion au séjour de Jean du Choul dans la suite de l?ambassadeur du roi de France. Au dire de Strada, Guillaume du Choul s?est qualifié comme l?un des premiers numismates par son habileté à interpréter les revers monétaires, jusqu?alors mal compris. La Religion, que l?on trouve dans bien des catalogues de bibliothèques anciennes, servit de répertoire iconographique à plusieurs peintres, comme Nicolas Poussin. La Castramétation est essentiellement un commentaire de planches sur l?armée romaine. Français relié Bon étatDeCollection

        Epistolarum Pauli Manutii Libri X Quinque Nuper Additis Eiusdem Quae Praefationes Appallantur: Cum Nova Quoque Accessione

      Londini: Excudebat Thomas Vautrollerius Typographus [for William Norton], 1581. [12], 505pp, [10]. Contemporary english calf, repaired and recased, showing remains of oval blindstamps. Lettered to fore-edge. Internally clean and crisp, with occasional marginal tearing/loss. Early ink inscriptions of S. Goode and F. Goode (followed by moto 'me jure tenet') to title. Paolo Manuzio (1512-1574), Venetian printer and humanist who continued the work of the Aldine press founded by his father Aldo. This collection of his ten books of grand Ciceronian letters and dedications to eminent contemporaries, first published in Venice 1558, proved of immense popularity with students of humanism across the continent. First published in England in octavo format (London, 1573), this edition printed by Thomas Vautroller for William Norton was the first to appear in the smaller sextodecimo format that endured reprinting under Robert Robinson (1591) and Richard Braddock/Robert Dexter (1603). This Vautroller edition appears in two states, with and in this case without mention of William Norton on the imprint but with the addition of a colophon with Norton's printer's device. Both are rare, with ESTC recording only four copies in the UK (BL, Cam, NLS and Ox) and three in the US (Huntington, Library Company of Philadelphia and Illinois). c/f Tomita 67. STC 17287. 16mo in 8s.

      Parma, nella Stamp. d'Erasmo Viotto, 1581. In-8 p.

In fine di ciascun Canto stanno buone annotazioni fornite da Bonaventura Angeli; al fine due Tavole, la prima delle quali contiene le ?"vaghe e leggiadre maniere usate dal Poeta nel descrivere le parti del giorno?" e la seconda gli ?"epiteti del poema?". Dedica dello stampatore Viotto ad Alessandro Farnese. Nel 1580 era apparsa a Venezia per Domenico Cavalcalupo una prima edizione del poema, ma "molto sciagurata, e manchevole quasi d'una terza parte del Poema (cosi' Serassi)". Nel 1581, quasi simultaneamente, furono stampate diverse edizioni, per lo più scorrette e non del tutto complete. Questa di Parma è considerata la più corretta e la più vicina al manoscritto originale del Tasso. Cfr. Gamba,746: ".. essa è una delle più pregevoli che si sieno fatte.. Vi sono riempiute le lacune lasciate nelle antecedenti edizioni, ed aggiunte parecchie stanze" - Guidi, p. 5: "Questa.. fu la prima, anche per sentimento di Mons. Fontanini, che veramente si potesse dir buona e pregiata" - La Raccolta Tassiana (Bibl. A. Mai di Bergamo),158.

        Opera de medicamentorum purgantium delectu, castigatione, & usu, Libri duo. Quorum priorem Canones universales, posteriorem de Simplicibus vocant. Grabadin, hoc est Compendii secretorum.

      medicamentorum, Libri duo. Quorum prior Antidotarium, posterior de appropriatis vulgo inscribitur... His accessere Plantarum in Libro simplicium descriptarum imagines ex vivo expressae... Venetiis, apud Iuntas, 1581. Folio (335 x 220mm). Leaves (8), 272; (6), 277, (13, 1 blank), with printer's device on title and 39 woodcuts of plants in the 'De Simplicibus' section. Contemporary vellum, spine with later repairs (somewhat worn). Second illustrated edition, the first to include the commentary of Johannes Costaeus. Yahya ibn Masawaih or Mesue the younger is supposed to have been a Jacobite Christian living at Maradin on the Euphrates in the 10th-11th centuries. However none of his writings have ever been found in their original language and no Arabian bio- or bibliographer knows him and it is now believed that a Latin author of the early 13th century assumed the name. At any rate, these works gained soon authorative importance as the pharmacological quintessence of Arabic therapeutics, and the esteem in which they were held is shown by the fact that they belonged to the first medical books to be printed. The first book 'De Simplicibus' deals with the choice of purgatives according to their properties and actions and are divided into laxative, mild and drastic. The 'Grabadin', or apothecary's manual was the most popular compendium of drugs in medieval Europe, and was used everywhere in their preparation. It was also used in forming the first London Pharmacopeia. The book also contains a treatise on therapeutics, covering diseases of the head, chest and a fragment on hart diseases, as well as many commentaries on, additions to, the works of Mesue by other authors.//Provenance: Bookplate of Edward Sandford Burgess; Horticultural Society of New York, bequest Kenneth K.

        Cestria (Vulgo) Chester, Angliae Civitates

      Cologne: , 1581. Framed size: 510 × 600 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Latin text on verso Fine condition. This wonderful, early plan of Chester was published in the third volume (of 6) of Braun and Hogenberg's epic work 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'; published between 1572 and 1617. This monumental city atlas contained some 546 bird's eye city prospects and map plans. The work was originally published to accompany Abraham Ortelius' great atlas; the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570. This plan of Chester depicts it in Elizabethan times, with appropriate attired figures in the foreground, a inscription in Latin, numerous aristocratic and royal heraldic shields, and the coats of arms of the city itself and of the bishop of the city. The river Dee divides England from Wales and all of the principal buildings and fortifications within the city are listed and numbered. Chester was founded by the Romans, serving legion that was posted there to ward off the Celtic Welsh as an important harbour and defensive position. Following the withdrawal of the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons extended the walls in order to protect the city against incursions by the Danes.

        EPISTOLAE CICERONIANO STYLO SCRIPTAE

      1581 - BUNEL, Pierre, and MANUZIO, Paulo. PETRI BUNELLI, GALLI, PRAECEPTORIS, & PAULAE MANUTII, DISCIPULI, EPISTOLAE CICERONIANO STYLO SCRIPTAE. Aliorum Gallorum Pariter et Italorum Epistolae eodem Stylo Scriptae. Geneva (Henri Estienne) 1581. Octavo. (vii)240(1)319pp. First and only authorized edition. A piracy may have been published in the same year. Estienne woodcut device on title (a philosopher standing at the foot of the Tree of Knowledge, and the motto "noli altum sapere.") The idea for this book stemmed from a conversation between the printer, Henri Estienne, who was known for his erudition, and King Henri III, the dedicatee. The King had asked why Italy, rather than France, claimed the most and best Ciceronian Latinists. Estienne went away and stewed a while, then described the conversation in Latin verse (quoted by Renouard), and published this comparison of letters written in Ciceronian Latin by Pierre Bunel (1499- 1546) and by the great editor of Cicero, Paulus Manutius, son and successor to Aldus. Estienne here champions French Ciceronians, printing the letter in which Manutius admits having learned to write correctly from Bunel, his companion of 40 years (p.111). Bunel's "Familiares aliquot Epistulae," (Paris, Estienne, 1551) was intended for juvenile readers ("in Adulescentiorum Ciceronis studiosorum gratiam"). The second portion, with its own half-title and pagination, contains the letters of Italians such as Longolio and Bembo, and the third, also with half-title, is a group of letters from French Latinists, including King Francis I. In early limp vellum, spine titled in ink. Pastedowns pulling loose; front fly adhering partially to paste-down; light spotting to title, and light marginal dampstain persisting to p.6; browning and corners torn off from pp. x-xi, not affecting text. Covers show age and soil. Small leather library label to spine. (Renouard 1581.5. British Museum 1084 i. 5. OCLC lists 3 copies in the USA).

Lorich studied in his native city, obtained a degree in theology in 1574 and became in 1581 dean of the theological faculty. He lectured for over thirty years and was elected several times rector of the Freiburg University. He was the author of numerous theological and devotional works, among them Der Wittfrawen Spiegel (1586), Cura corporis humani pia atque salubris:pro clericis, aliisque piis onmibus (1587), Pugna Spiritualis. Tractatus vere aureus: de Perfectione vitae Christianae (1599, in German: 1604), Fortalitium christianae fidei ac religionis adversus haereses horum temporum praecipuas (1606) (cf. K.-H. Braun, Jodocus Lorichius, in: "Freiburger Universitätsblätter", 137, 1997, pp. 61-64). The first work is the German translation of a letter by Bernard of Clairvaux to his sister on the education of a woman and is dedicated by the translator Lorich "to all young women and widows". The first letter by Jerome is a reply to Celantia, a lady of rank and a busy household administrator, who was asking for a rule of pious life, even though she was bound to a husband. This letter is not longer attributed to Jerome, of whose style it shows few traces. It has been ascribed in turn to Paulinus of Nola and Sulpicius Severus. The second letter is addressed to Laeta, the daughter of Jeromes co-ascetic Paula, on how to raise a female child. He, in short, views disembodiment as redemption, and therefore also as the final goal of education (cf. C. Landman, Education of the body of the female child: feminism in dialogue with Jerome, in: ¡°Studia Historiae Ecclesiaticae¡±, 32/1, 2006, pp. 147-161). VD 16, H-3506, K.-H. Braun, op. cit., p. 400, no. 13. (Thanks to Axel Erdmann for his cataloging of this item) [Attributes: First Edition]

        EPISTOLAE CICERONIANO STYLO SCRIPTAE

      1581. BUNEL, Pierre, and MANUZIO, Paulo. PETRI BUNELLI, GALLI, PRAECEPTORIS, & PAULAE MANUTII, DISCIPULI, EPISTOLAE CICERONIANO STYLO SCRIPTAE. Aliorum Gallorum Pariter et Italorum Epistolae eodem Stylo Scriptae. Geneva (Henri Estienne) 1581. Octavo. (vii)240(1)319pp. First and only authorized edition. A piracy may have been published in the same year. Estienne woodcut device on title (a philosopher standing at the foot of the Tree of Knowledge, and the motto "noli altum sapere.") The idea for this book stemmed from a conversation between the printer, Henri Estienne, who was known for his erudition, and King Henri III, the dedicatee. The King had asked why Italy, rather than France, claimed the most and best Ciceronian Latinists. Estienne went away and stewed a while, then described the conversation in Latin verse (quoted by Renouard), and published this comparison of letters written in Ciceronian Latin by Pierre Bunel (1499- 1546) and by the great editor of Cicero, Paulus Manutius, son and successor to Aldus. Estienne here champions French Ciceronians, printing the letter in which Manutius admits having learned to write correctly from Bunel, his companion of 40 years (p.111). Bunel's "Familiares aliquot Epistulae," (Paris, Estienne, 1551) was intended for juvenile readers ("in Adulescentiorum Ciceronis studiosorum gratiam"). The second portion, with its own half-title and pagination, contains the letters of Italians such as Longolio and Bembo, and the third, also with half-title, is a group of letters from French Latinists, including King Francis I. In early limp vellum, spine titled in ink. Pastedowns pulling loose; front fly adhering partially to paste-down; light spotting to title, and light marginal dampstain persisting to p.6; browning and corners torn off from pp. x-xi, not affecting text.

      1581 - Livre ancien (7 bl), 366 p., (40 ff. table) ; (4), 73 p., (2bl) ; 247 p., (7bl). Le premier texte est un poème satirique sur les mauvaises moeurs, contenant de vives attaques contre le Pape et le clergé. Un texte corrosif qui explique sans doute le double cryptage du nom de l'auteur : sous forme de palindrome, dont les premières lettres nous donnent Mercellus Palingenius Stellatus, anagramme du véritable nom de l'auteur, Pierangelo Manzolli, né à Stellata près de Florence. Réunion de trois textes dans une reliure de choix datée, monogrammée et ornée d'une gravures datée et signée ; condition remarquable. Condition : Petit in-8, en plein-vélin à recouvrement estampé sur le plat supérieur "IRN" et daté 1594. Sur le premier contre-plat, estampe rehaussée représentant Atlas entouré des quatre empires (Asirria - Persia - Roma - Graeci) et de leurs attributs respectifs. Dans un cartouche : "In argentina.

      VENEZIA, GIO. BATTISTA PORTA, 1581 - Legatura settecentesca in piena pelle color avana con filetto impresso a secco ai piatti; dorso a 5 nervi rilevati con titolo in oro su tassello rosso fregi e filetti in oro agli scomparti; tagli rossi, guardie marmorizzate; alla prima di guardia bianca timbro di possesso Avv. Renzo Grugnola e nota manoscritta sovrapposta ad altra. Frontespizio con marca tipografica silografate, nota di possesso manoscritta di Fougeroux de Bondaroy, menda al bordo inferiore a risarcire piccole lacune con tracce di note manoscritte - 31 carte non numerate per dedica e indici - 501 carte numerate, per quanto riguarda la prima parte del volume; 96 - (4) carte numerate, compreso il frontespizio con marca tipografica silografata - per quanto concerne la seconda parte dell'opera e dedicata alla descrizione delle "isole appartenenti alla Italia", nonché di Venezia. Alcuni capolettera con decorazioni a racemi. Il volume comprende una monumentale descrizione d'Italia, pubblicata in prima edizione nel 1550: copiose e interessantissime sono le notizie sulla geografia, la storia antica e moderna, i costumi, l'arte e l'architettura della penisola. L'autore fu un frate domenicano, nato e vissuto a Bologna, che si rese noto, oltre che per quest'opera, per scritti agiografici e di erudizione storica. L'esemplare in esame ha particolare pregio perché comprende anche la seconda parte della Descrittione - spesso pubblicata separatamente - che riguarda le isole e la Serenissima; inoltre, il testo è aggiornato fino all'ultimo quarto del XVI secolo. Esemplare in condizioni conservative complessivamente buone, piccoli trafori di tarlo all'angolo superiore di alcune pagine, in particolare alle prime carte degli indici con modestissime perdite di poche lettere, da pagina 250 a 280 e da pagina 10 a pagina 25 della seconda parte, in questo caso davvero irrilevanti avendo dimensioni di un paio di millimetri e lontano dal testo.
