        Celt'-Hellenisme, ou, Etymologic des Mots francois tirez du Graec. Plus. Preuves en general de la descente de nostre langue

      Plate with woodcut port. of the author & woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. 4 p.l., 311, [1] pp. 8vo, late 17th-cent. or early 18th-cent. mottled calf, flat spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Orléans: E. Gibier, 1581. First edition, second issue, with the title-page dated 1581 (1st issue: 1580). This is an uncommon book on the influence of Greek on the French language. It had its basis in the myth that France's first kings came from Greece, or that France was named for Francion, a son of Hector, who escaped the sack of Troy. Henri Estienne similarly looked for Greek origins for the French language, assimilating the glory of classical Athens with 16th-century France. Trippault was a lawyer in Orléans and the author of a number of other books on French history and law. Éloi Gibier, bookseller and printer to the University of Orléans, also published other philological and local historical works, including some by Trippault. Fine copy from the Macclesfield library with bookplate. ❧ Rothschild, I, 319-(with a reproduction of the portrait). .

        Catalogus Novus nundinarum Autumnalium Francofurti ad Moenum, Anno M.D. LXXXI. celebratarum, eorum scilicet librorum, qui hoc semestri, partim omnino novi, partim denuo vel forma, vel loco, à prioribus editionibus diversi, vel accessione aliqua locupletiores, in lucem prodierunt, & his Nundinis venales sunt expositi

      18 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern boards (minor foxing). Frankfurt am Main: 1581. The autumn 1581 catalogue of the Frankfurt Book Fair. The catalogues of the Frankfurt Book Fair, issued twice a year by Georg Willer starting in the autumn of 1564, created a revolution for the book trade. "Before that date printers visiting the fair must have had to write out by hand countless lists of new books to send to their customers: thereafter they could send copies of the fair catalogue to the local booksellers all over Europe, who in turn passed them on to their customers...The fair catalogue was a co-operative effort: the printers coming to the fair sent in advance title-pages of the books they were bringing, so that Willer could arrange them in subject order before printing his catalogue."-Pollard & Ehrman, p. 77. These "catalogues represent the first international bibliographies of a periodic character, attempting to list every six months all new publications issued in Europe, and they can be considered the prototype of today's Books in Print. The books are arranged by subject; for the first time, place, publisher, and date are always mentioned."-Grolier Club, Bibliography, 24-(according to Breslauer and Folter, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the autumn 1568 issue at Harvard). All Willer catalogues are extremely rare. According to OCLC, the earliest Willer catalogue in America is the 1574 issue (but see above). It is interesting to note that Dr. Breslauer did not have any 16th-century issues. The earliest copy in the Broxbourne Library is spring 1577. Fine and fresh copy. No copy in the U.S., according to OCLC. From the library of Thore Virgin (1886-1957). .

This volume collects two sixteenth-century treatises on canon law. First published in 1571, Mandosio's treatise addresses administrative law and government. Its final edition was published in 1585. A respected work, it was reprinted in the great Tractatus Universi Iuris (1584-86). Rossignac's treatise deals with the same topics from a historical perspective with an emphasis on councils and synods. Hamilton [1563-1637] was a notable Scottish lawyer, judge and politician.

        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.

        L'Eneide di Virgilio Mantuano commentata in lingua volgare toscana da Giovanni Fabrini da Fighine [et] Filippo Venuti da Cortona. Con ordine, che l'espositione volgare è dichiaration della Latina, & la Latina dichiara la Volgare: & è utile tanto à chi in questo Poeta vuole imparar la lingua Latina, quanto à chi cerca d'apprendere la Toscana

      Venetia, Gio. Battista Sessa & Fratelli 1581.. gr.-4°. 318 num. Bll. Mit gest. Titel- u. Schlußvign. sowie 12 Kopfleisten u. zahlr. Initialen. HLdr. d. späten 18. Jhdts. m.

Seltene und interessant kommentierte Übertragung der Aeneis ins Toskanische, in 12 Kapiteln gegliedert, wobei die ersten 7 von Fighine und die letzten 5 von Filippo da Cortona verfasst worden sind. Giovanni Fabrini da Fighine relativiert, in einer Gegenüberstellung gleich am Titelblatt, den Status der "lengua volgare" im Verhältnis zur "lengua latina", indem er beim Leser (des vorl. Buches) sowohl die Kenntnisse des Lateinischen als auch des Toskanischen als Lektürevoraussetzung erwartet. Fighine übersetzte u. a. auch Cicero, Terentius u. Horaz ebenfalls ins Toskanische. Eine frühere Ausg. erschien 1575 ebenfalls in Venedig.

        La Theologie naturelle de Raymond Sebond, traduicte nouvellement en François par messier Michel, Seigneur de Montaigne

      Paris: Michel Sonnius, 1581. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Thick 8vo.. (2) ff., 469 (ie 496) pp., (30) ff. Bound in original yapp edged vellum, ties partially present, with title stenciled on spine. Engraved ex libris of Peter Müger on front end pastedown. Illegible ownership inscription on title. A flawless copy. Extremely rare second, corrected edition, as rare as the first (1569) of Montaigne's first book, a translation into French of the 15th century Catalan theologian Raimund Sabunde's Liber naturae sive creaturarum ( composed 1434-36, editio princeps 1487). Beyond its obvious interest as a contemporary edition of a work by a major figure of world literature, the translation has particular resonance as a stepping-stone to the Essais (first 1580): both for its humanistic "natural theology" which argued that the scholastic antithesis between reason and faith, philosophy and reason was false, and that Nature and the Bible were accordingly both forms of Divine Revelation; and more specifically, as an introduction to what would prove to be the longest and most famous chapter of the Essais, L'Apologie de Raymond Sebond (Book II, chapter xii.) It is here that Montaigne poses the skeptical question emblematic of the entire work and indeed, of himself,'What do I know?' ('Que sais-je?') On a biographical note, along with earlier reading and his friendship with Etienne de La Boëtie, it was the initial publication of the present work which led to Montaigne's retirement from political life and devotion to a life of study and writing. Montaigne's attentiveness as a translator deserves particular notice, as the work's prologue had appeared on the 1559 Index Librorum Prohibitorum. As Screech notes in his introduction to his translation of the Essais: "No censor has ever said a word against it. [Montaigne] had clearly taken theological advice and adapted the Prologue to meet the needs of the Faith. Comparison of his version and the original shows why the Latin prologue appeared among the prohibited books, while the French version never did." While the present edition is sometimes referred to as a reprint of the 1569, a recent article by Cérard shows that this is not the case. In this connexion, it is of interest that in 1958 the late Parisian bookseller Alain Brieux offered a copy of the 1569 edition which contained over 200 corrections in Montaigne's hand, the vast majority of which were incorporated into the present edition. (See Cérard for further details about alterations.) The present edition was certainly 'timed' to ride the coat-tails of the 1580 Essais' success. For the present edition, OCLC lists 5 copies in American libraries: Harvard, Chicago, Virginia. Columbia and Princeton. The first edition is held by the Folger, Yale, Princeton, LC, and the Morgan. * Adams M-40 (Gorbin imprint); Tchemerzine-Scheler IV.914; Jean Cérard in Montaigne Studies (1993) V.1-2, pp. 11-26.

On a biographical note, along with earlier reading and his friendship with Etienne de La Boëtie, it was the initial publication of the present work which led to Montaigne's retirement from political life and devotion to a life of study and writing.Montaigne's attentiveness as a translator deserves particular notice, as the work's prologue had appeared on the 1559 Index Librorum Prohibitorum. As Screech notes in his introduction to his translation of the Essais: "No censor has ever said a word against it. [Montaigne] had clearly taken theological advice and adapted the Prologue to meet the needs of the Faith. Comparison of his version and the original shows why the Latin prologue appeared among the prohibited books, while the French version never did." While the present edition is sometimes referred to as a reprint of the 1569, a recent article by Cérard shows that this is not the case. In this connexion, it is of interest that in 1958 the late Parisian bookseller Alain Brieux offered a copy of the 1569 edition which contained over 200 corrections in Montaigne's hand, the vast majority of which were incorporated into the present edition. (See Cérard for further details about alterations.) The present edition was certainly 'timed' to ride the coat-tails of the 1580 Essais' success. For the present edition, OCLC lists 5 copies in American libraries: Harvard, Chicago, Virginia. Columbia and Princeton. The first edition is held by the Folger, Yale, Princeton, LC, and the Morgan.* Adams M-40 (Gorbin imprint); Tchemerzine-Scheler IV.914; Jean Cérard in Montaigne Studies (1993) V.1-2, pp. 11-26.

        Lettera apologetica dell'esercitato accademico della Crusca contenente la Difesa del Libro Intitolato Lettere d'una Peruana per rispetto alla supposizione de'Quipu. Napoli, con licenza de' superiori.Naples: Gennaro Morelli, 1750.

      First edition, author's presentation copy, of the first extensive treatise on the Peruvian knot-based counting language <i>Quipu</i>. This celebrated and beautiful book by the Neapolitan polymath Prince Raimondi di Sangro, was produced using his own polychromatic printing process. The <i>Quipu</i>, a method used by the Inca administration for recording data and performing calculations by means of knots made along cords of various colours, is currently attracting renewed interest due to its similarities to the binary system used in modern digital computers. Quipus used a decimal positional system: a knot in a row farthest from the main strand represented one, next farthest ten, etc.; the absence of knots on a cord implied zero. The colours of the cords, the way the cords are connected together, the relative placement of the cords, the spaces between the cords, the types of knots on the individual cords, and the relative placement of the knots are all important parts of the recording system. For example, a yellow strand might represent gold or maize; or on a population Quipu the first set of strands represented men, the second set women, and the third set children. 'Quipucamayocs,' the accountants of the Inca Empire, created and deciphered the Quipu knots, and were also capable of performing simple mathematical calculations such as adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing. Quipu accounts were kept by court historians in Peru that covered hundreds of years of history, but after the Conquest, the Spaniards began to resent having this second set of record-keepers contradict them. The Quipu was classified as idolatrous at the Third Council of Lima (1581-3), and all examples found were to be burned (Urton, p. 10). <br/><br/> The prince's account of the Quipu is based on a manuscript written by the mestizo Jesuit Blas Valera and owned by the prince. It included "a brief grammar and a succinct vocabulary" of forty master words supposedly used in the language of the Quipu. Di Sangro supplemented Valera's text with beautiful illustrations. All of the folding plates are conveniently tipped onto a blank sheet, so that the reader can unfold them outside the book block for easy comparison with the text. In the first plate, Sangro transcribes these words and illustrates them as a variety of differently coloured knots. The second plate illustrates a song about a princess, which may also originate from the Jesuit manuscript. In the third plate, Di Sangro goes even further than these word associations to assign each colour, location and number of knots as separate syllables for a different Quipu that functioned more like an actual writing system. In this he followed the manuscript's "claims that Blas Valera had described a secret kind of writing, known only to the kings, historians, and wise men of the empire, that functioned as an actual writing system. In other works, these royal khipu . . . could be read on their own as texts, without reference to narratives memorized by their creators" (Hyland, p. 158). The prince's account of the Quipu is in the form of a response to criticism of Madame de Graffigny's recent (1747) epistolary novel, Lettres d'une Peruvienne, in which the letters sent between lovers (one in France, and the other still in Peru) are not written, but are formed out of knotted cords, or Quipus. <br/><br/> Raimondi di Sangro was the celebrated eccentric prince of Sansevero (1710-1771). An active Freemason and lifelong inventor, he designed the multiple-colour printing method used in this book as well as weaponry, stage sets and the chemical experiments that likely caused his death. While Sangro was excommunicated for his connection with the Freemasons, Blas Valera was himself imprisoned for heresy. Perhaps his offense was writing the manuscript that preserved the language of the Quipu. Until recently, the ethnographic literature on the subject generally assumed Sangro fabricated the entire idea of a more secret form. However, a manuscript with striking similarities to the views Sangro describes was discovered in the 1990s, including the song on Sangro's second plate (Hyland, p. 152). <br/><br/> Not in OOC; M Ascher, The logical-numerical system of Inca quipus, <i>Annals of the History of Computing</i> 5 (3) (1983), 268-278; S.

        Tractatus de magno animali, quod alcen nonnulli vocant, germani verò elend, & de ipsius partium in re medica facultatibus: item historia cervi rangiferi, & gulonis filfros vocati.

      Ad Rudolphum II [...]. Accessit remb. Dodonæi medici cæsarei de alce epistola. Köln, apud maternum Cholinum, 1581. 8:o. (16),88 s. Trevligt marmorerat pappbd, möjligen från 1700-talet, med ny röd titeletikett och blindpräglat årtal nedtill på ryggen. Delvis med ytlig sprickbildning i pappret i ytterfalsarna. Några svaga lager- och fuktfläckar, främst i övre marginalen. Bitvis med små maskhål som löper genom hela volymen i övre marginalen och rubriktexten. Liten pappersförlust i nedre hörnet på sista sidan. Bra ex. med Gunnar Brusewitz exlibris.. Waller 11911. "Tractatus de magno animali" utkom i tre latinska upplagor under 1581 med varierande titlar. De andra trycktes i Milano respektive Wien. En italiensk översättning gavs ut i Rimini 1584. Beskriver älgen ur zoologiskt men främst medicinskt perspektiv. Älgen ansågs ha många hälsobringande delar att utvinna medikamenter av: klövarna användes exempelvis som ett verksamt botemedel mot epilepsi. Även renen och järven beskrivs kortfattat och Olaus Magnus citeras. Björn Dal nämner Menabenus arbete som det enda 1500-talsverk av någon betydelse rörande svensk zoologi vid sidan av Olaus Magnus. Menabenus var en kort tid i Sverige som läkare åt Johan III. Han skrev även ett litet arbete om Stockholms ström vilket också trycktes 1581. Gunnar Brusewitz föreslog Michaelisgillet att låta utge en svensk översättning av Menabenus arbete. Denna första svenska översättning utgavs 1996 med ett förord av Brusewitz. Han har även avhandlat Menabenus skrift i sitt stora arbete "Jakt" och i "Ekoparken". I den sistnämnda skriver Brusewitz om Johan III:s kungsgårdar på Djurgården: "Det är ingen tillfällighet att Johan III:s livläkare, italienaren Apollonius Menabenus, var den förste som beskrev älgen efter egen synerfarenhet. Inget motsäger att Menabenus studier av älgarna i hägnet på Djurgården låg till grund för hans bok De magno animali"
