Antoine des Arenes (1500-1544), originaire de Solliers en Provence a écrit cette oeuvre en vers qui appartient au genre macaronique et burlesque, mélange de bas latin, de provençal et de français. Il y décrit les basses danses (Bassas dansas) et, plus brièvement, la Pavane, la Gaillarde, le Tourdion, la Courante... L'oeuvre est comme un traité d'enseignement des basses danses aux étudiants d'Avignon, où Arena était lui-même étudiant vers 1520.  Le livre d'Antonius Arena est le premier ouvrage didactique de l'histoire de la danse en France. L'oeuvre contient également d'autres poèmes macaroniques sur le sac de Rome et les guerres napolitaines dont l'auteur fut témoin en tant que soldat. C'est une oeuvre importante, pour la littérature provençale et pour l'histoire de la danse en France. L'ouvrage se termine par deux rondeaux en français.

        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.

        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.

      Extremely 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 17th century red morocco.<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. His contemporaries expected caesareans to be performed if the mother had died during the labour, in order to allow the fetus a chance of survival, but it was widely assumed that to perform a caesarean on a living woman would be to condemn her to certain death. Hence Rousset's treatise on the subject, published in French in 1581, and then in Latin translation from 1586, provoked almost universal scepticism, yet also exercised a marked fascination. Despite the fact that as a physician (rather than a surgeon) he had never performed the operation himself, he had witnessed some rare deliveries by caesarean, collected other case histories and reflected on analogous operations, before presenting his research in [the present work]" (Valerie Worth-Stylianou, 'Caesarean Birth: The work of François Rousset in Renaissance France,' <i>Wellcome History</i>, 15 December 2010).. 8vo (169 x 100 mm), pp. [16], 1-228, [4], fine 18th century red morocco with richly gilt spine, all edges gilt, entirely unrestored, name cut from the top margin of title page when bound, old amateur paper repairs to the verso of title at top margin and inner hinge, a fine and clean copy of this rarity. [Bound with:] [SOUMAIN]. Operation cesarienne faite a Paris, le onzieme jour de juin, 1740. N.p., n.d. [Paris: 1740]. 12mo, pp. 23. An account of a Caesarian section performed by a M. Soumain on a woman with a pelvic abnormality who was about to give birth. M. Soumain determined, after consulting with his colleagues, that there was no alternative to a Caesarian. He performed the operation successfully: the child was born normally, and the mother made a full recovery after 40 days. No copy located in auction records; BL only on COPAC

        Venetia citta nobilissima et singolare, descritta in XIIII libri

      1581. SANSOVINO, Francesco. Venetia citta nobilissima et singolare, descritta in XIIII libri. [4], 286 (i.e., 278); 38; [34] ff., including final blank. Woodcut initials. 4to., 185 x 140 mm, bound in Venetian marbled paper imitating tree calf over boards, author and title gilt in second of five spine compartments, red and blue speckled edges. In Venetia: Appresso Iacomo Sansovino, 1581.First Edition of the "first comprehensive guide to the city and the prototype of all subsequent guide books. As the major source for later writings on Venetian art, it proved invaluable to Ridolfi and Boschini in the seventeenth century, to Zanetti in the eighteenth and to Moschini in the early nineteenth. Ruskin acknowledged his debt to Sansovino in the Stones of Venice. "This book established a sixteenth-century provenance for innumerable works of art. It contains detailed topographical descriptions and gives information on works since lost or destroyed. The iconography of many of the paintings inside the Doge&#39;s Palace is explained, and it becomes clear that Francesco himself devised the literary programme for those in the Sala delle Quattro Porte" (Jennifer Fletcher in her introduction to the facsimile reprint of this edition, 1972). Cicognara refers to Sansovino&#39;s book as "la miglior illustrazione di Venezia." Schlosser calls this the first artistic topography of Venice, "di singolar valore, non meno che per l&#39;abbondanza di notizie su uno dei periodi artisticamente piu ricchi."A substantial contribution to the history of the Republic, Sansovino&#39;s detailed topographical description of Venice accurately maps the sestieri with descriptions of churches (including transcriptions from funerary monuments), schools, palaces, municipal and private buildings. With a 38-leaf timeline at the end, followed by tables listing churches, doges, and authors of Venice. Sparse contemporary marginalia. Board extremities scuffed, occasional mild foxing, overall a very good copy. PROVENANCE: Achille Conte [...], early ink inscription on title-page. Cicognara 4379. Schlosser Magnino, pp. 367-369. Cicogna 4467. Fossati-Bellani 2393.

        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.

Selon l'une des notices de libraires collées au début du premier volume, "la partialité de l'auteur, qui était protestant, a dû l'égarer souvent, notamment dans ce qu'il dit du clergé. Ainsi après le dénombrement des prélats, prêtres et moines , etc., il y a joint le nombre de leurs putains, par diocèse, couvent, etc., qu'il fait monter à 900,000".

Demons and Sinners and Monks and Angels "It was also [the Bavarian Monastery in] Tegernsee that under the rule of Abbot Quirinus (1568-94) established a printing-press in 1573. The importance of printing was probably recognized at the very first on account of the art of wood-engraving which had been practised for a long time at Tegernsee, and of which very beautiful proof-impressions of the years 1472 and 1477 are still extant. The press at Tegernsee issued chiefly religious and popular works, and also scholarly and liturgical books of great typographical beauty" - Catholic Encyclopedia (Online). The woodcut symbolic illustrations depict the sufferings of purgatory and the strengths and pitfalls of the spiritual life; the accompanying explanatory text is keyed to the figures.

      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. Apud Horatium de Gobbis Venetiis (Venise) 1581 In-12 (8x15xm) 541pp. relié

El prólogo ?Ad lectorem? de Caspar Rutz lleva al pie el ?privilegio Regis Hispaniarum & Cancellarii Brabantiae?, por lo que parece debió imprimirse en territorio afín a los Habsburgo (Colonia, es otra posibilidad), más que en Amsterdam, como apunta una de las entradas de la British Library.

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.

      Apud Eustathius Vignon, (Geneva): 1581., Geneva - pp. (32), 480, (12). Printer's anchor device on the title page. Small 8vo. Some old age and damp stain, but overall a nice copy. Later cloth backed boards binding. Benzoni "forms a material link in the chain of American history as conveying an adequate view of the doings of the early settlers, and the consequent state of things in the New World." The circulation of Benzoni's book was forbidden in Spain, but it enjoyed great popularity in the other European countries." This account was first published in Italian (1565). Edited and Latinized by Urbanus Calveton, this is an exact reissue of the first Latin edition (1578), in which the translator added his own account of the French expedition to Florida in 1565. Benzoni was born in Milan around 1519. At the age of twenty-two he left Italy to tour the New World. After fourteen years of travel he returned and published this work. "It deserves to be prized by those interested in the history of the first establishment of Europeans in America, from other than Spanish sources" - Trovenal. It is said that, from this work, Kotzebue obtained the foundation of his famous play Pizarro. George Buchanan wrote a poem about Brazil which is appended to the end of the book.

The Suidas, or Suda is a colossal Greek/Byzantine encyclopaedia compiled in the 10th century. In 30.000 lemmata all that was worth to be known was presented and explained. The editio princeps of the Greek text dates from 1499. Aldus published an edition in 1514. It was first translated into Latin by Hieronymus Wolf (1516-1580), and was published in 1564 by the same publisher as this translation of 1581. Wolf was a pupil of Melanchthon, and made his mark by his repeated editions of Isocrates and Demosthenes. Next to the Suda he edited 3 folio volumes of Byzantine historians. Sandys II,268) The headings of the translated lemmata are in Greek.) (Collation: ):(6, a-z6, A-V6, X8, alpha6, betha4, gamma6) (Photographs on request)
