        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: Richard Iones, 1581. - 100 leaves. Woodcuts on first titlepage and in text. Small quarto. Full gilt morocco by Middleton, spine gilt extra, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Trimmed close, affecting headlines but not text; some leaves with minor staining and soiling. Else good. 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. CHURCH 126.

        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).

Janautschek, Bibliographia Bernardina qua Sancti Bernardi primi Abbatis Claravallensis operum cum omnium tum singulorum editiones ac versiones vitas et tractatus de eo scriptos quotquot usque ad finem anni 1890 reperire potuit, (Hildesheim, 1959), no. 651; FIRST EDITIONS of these translations by the Freiburg theologian Jodocus Lorich (1540-1612). 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]

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.

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.

        Fine half-length portrait engraving of the composer aged 63 by Lucas Kilian, ca. 1622, incorporating a 4-part psalm setting

      177 x 112 mm. With commemorative ode to lower portion of sheet. Trimmed to within platemark; lined at lower margin on verso. . Reproduced in Kinsky p. 85, no. 443. Gumpelzhaimer spent most of his active life in Augsburg, where he was Kantor and Präzeptor at the school and church of St. Anna from 1581 until his death. "Gumpelzhaimer was probably best known to German musicians of and after his time through his Compendium musicae... The richness of musical activity of St Anna is indicated not only by Gumpelzhaimer’s music but also by the extensive holdings of the church library during his 44 years there. A handwritten inventory was started by Gumpelzhaimer in 1620 and continued by Faust in 1625. This list includes, in addition to many printed collections, several large manuscript books of polyphonic music in score notation. Two of these books have survived, one begun in 1599 and the other completed in 1624. They were copied out mostly by Gumpelzhaimer and contain compositions by many prominent musicians of the time."

Physicorum Libri X was first published in Basle Switzerland in the same year as our London edition but it is not listed in Adams, nor in Sothebys, The Library of the Earls of Macclesfield Science Section or Part 11, nor in Honeyman, Scientific Books and Manuscripts. It has been noted that in Book II, Astronomy, page 31, chapter xvii he describes the Milky Way as a collection of discrete stars, preceding Galileo who is commonly accepted as being the first to do this in 1609.

      Tegernsee: [Klosterdruckerei], 1581 - "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).

Impresa tipografica silografata al frontesp., testo in corsivo su due colonne entro filetto tipografico, ornato da testatine e grandi iniziali figurate a vignetta, inc. su legno. Gli argomenti di ogni canto, dovuti a Orazio Ariosti, sono inquadrati entro bordura tipografica ornata. L?opera è introdotta da una dedica del poeta Angelo Ingegneri al Duca Carlo Emanuele di Savoia. Terza ediz. del poema, in parte originale, aumentata e corretta, in 20 canti. La prima edizione vide la luce a Venezia nel 1580, col titolo "il Goffredo", da un manoscritto incompleto e senza l'autorizzazione del Tasso (l?Abate Serassi la giudicava "rara e interessante, ma molto sciagurata, scorretta e manchevole quasi d'una terza parte del poema"). Seconda ediz. e' considerata quella di Parma, Viotti, 1581 (contemporanea a questa di Casalmaggiore). Rara e importante è la presente edizione del capolavoro tassiano, la prima in cui, nonostante alcune lacune ed errori di lezione, il testo del poema appaia quasi nella sua interezza.
