STOBAEUS (Joannes) - [Jean STOBÉE ou Jean de STOBI].
Francofurti (Francfort), André Wechel, 1581, in-folio,(10) ff., 962 pp., (3) ff., marque de G. Weschel sur le titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Signatures ã6 4 [A-Z]6 [Aa-Zz]6 [AA-ZZ]6 [Aaa-LII]6 Mmm4. Traces de mouillures anciennes, galerie de vers sur une trentaine de feuillets avec perte de quelques lettres, reliure plein veau marbré, dos à 6 nerfs guillochés, caissons ornés, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, tranches rouges (reliure du XVIIIe), coiffes frottées, bon état Bonne édition grecque avec la traduction latine en regard de Conrad Gessner (1516-1565). Elle est augmentée par rapport à l'édition bilingue de 1543 (Zürich) des collections de S. Maxime et d'Antoine Melissa. Ce recueil d'apophtegmes et fragments d'auteurs grecs fut rassemblé au VIe siècle de notre ère par Jean Stobée et publié pour la première fois par Trincavelli à Venise en 1535. Le livre est une anthologie d'extraits d'auteurs grecs, en quatre livres, dont les sujets sont respectivement la philosophie et la physique, la rhétorique et la poésie, l'éthique et la politique. Il contient un grand nombre de fragments d'ouvrages aujourd'hui perdus. C'est ce qui en fait la valeur. L'ouvrage de Stobée exerça une grande influence parmi les humanistes du XVIe siècle. « L'une de nos principales sources pour l'histoire de la philosophie grecque antique. » (George Sarton) ; (Graesse VI, 500 ; Adams S1880 ; Sarton I, 405)

Contarini, Giovanni Pietro.
Probably Saxony, 1581. Folio (205 x 320 mm). German ms. on paper. 179 ff., with calligraphic title page. Contemp. limp vellum (wants ties). German translation of Contarini's famous report of the Battle of Lepanto, widely hailed as one of the most important sources for the history of the naval battle, the first notable victory achieved over the seemingly invincible Ottoman forces. "Contarini has written a detailed account of the battle, including the events leading up to it. He includes many interesting statistics - the source of the various ships, numbers of men taking part, etc." (Navari 396). Although the present translation, prepared by the Dresden alto singer Heinrich Habermehl (cf. Eitner III, 441), was not published until 1599 (as "Historische und gründliche Beschreibung der letzten großen Schlacht so zwischen den Venediern und dem Türcken uffn Meer gehalten worden"; VD 16, ZV 8031), the date on the title page proves that it was basically finished nearly two decades earlier. The manuscript, apparently executed by a professional chancery scribe, was undoubtedly written in the sphere of the Saxon court (as shown by the watermark, bearing the Saxon arms) and may even be the translator's autograph fair copy. Contarini's account was first published in Italian in 1572; the first German translation appeared a year later (prepared by the humanist Georg Henisch von Bartfeld; Navari 396f.). Habermehl, it seems, undertook his own version very soon after this. (Between 1582 and 1588, immediately after completion of this manuscript, he translated Sabellico's "History of Venice", f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Herodianus; Politan; Zosimus; Estienne.
Excudebat Henricus Stephanus (Estienne), [Geneva]: 1581. pp. [viii], 182, [ii], 79, [i]. Woodcut Estienne device on title page. Greek and Latin in parallel columns. Text uniformly foxed. Manuscript description of the acquistion (in 1800) of this copy and other bibliographic points. 4to. 26 cm. 18th century full limp vellum binding. Herodianus, supposed to have been a Syrian Greek, flourished during the third century A.D. In 203 he was in Rome, where he held some minor posts. His great historical work was written in Greek and narrates the events of the fifty-eight years between the death of Marcus Aurelius and the proclamation of Gordianus III. (180-238). The narrative is of special value as supplementing Dion Cassius, whose history ends with Alexander Severus. Chronicling the events of his own times, gifted with ordinary powers of observation, indubitable candour and independence of view his work is of inestimable value. He gives a lively account of many events such as: the death of Commodus; the assassination of Pertinax; how Didius Julianus bought the Roman Empire at auction; etc. Extensive use has been made of Herodianus by later chroniclers, especially the 'Scriptores historiae Au gustae' and John of Antioch. Poliziano did the first translation into Latin (1493) which conferred celebrity status on Herodian for the duration of the Renaissance. This Herodian was described by Dibdin as `an elegant, rare and critical edition', with notes and textual revisions by Henri Estienne. This is the first edition of any part of Zosimus (Editio Princeps), although Estienne only printe … [Click Below for Full Description]

BÜNTING, Heinrich
Magdeburg: (1581). 315 x 380 mm., with wide margins.; This double-page wood engraved map of Europe is in the form of a virgin. It is one of the earliest cartographic curiosities published. It is found in the 1581 work by Heinrich Bünting entitled 'Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae' published in Magdeburg. It was the first book devoted to the geography and history of the Holy Land. The map was first produced by Joannes Bucius in 1537. It is designed with the west at the top with Spain as a crowned head. Italy is is represented by the right arm with Sicily cleverly placed in the orb, Denmark the left one. Eastern Europe forms the dress. It has been suggested that the image in fact represents not a woman, but the Emperor Charles V. It draws on the fact that the image might in fact represent the Imperial power of Spain that was at the time the 'crown of Europe'. The Sceptre reaches the British Isles.Bünting was born in Hannover, Germany, in 1545 and studied at Wittenberg University. He became a pastor at Gronau and noted Protestant theologian. It is famous also for his clover leaf image of the world and the continent of Asia depicted as Pegasus. The book is his most famous work and is in fact one of the rarest despite running to a number of editions in different languages. At least two further new blocks were produced in 1595 and in 1610. This is an example of the first. A series of explanatory verses appears below.

FROUMENTEAU (Nicolas)
- S.l., 1581. 3 parties reliées en un volume in-8, plein veau brun de l’époque, dos à nerfs orné garni de compartiments dorés aux petits fers et d’un fleuron central à froid répété, tranches mouchetées, (56) p. titre inclus, 152 p. ; 472 p. titre inclus et (1) f. de titre, (6), 439 p. (i.e. 435) p. Seconde édition publiée la même année que l'originale, très largement augmentée par rapport à celle-ci éditée sous le titre de ‘Les secrets des thrésors de la France’. "Premier essai méthodique de statistique de l'histoire" (Baudrillart), l'ouvrage constitue une source fondamentale sur les conséquences financières, politiques et sociales des Guerres de Religion (1550-1580). Pour chacun des quatre-vingt-dix diocèses français, l'auteur fournit les statistiques des impôts royaux, rançons, rapines de la soldatesque, entretien des troupes, finances ecclésiastiques, villages ou bâtiments incendiés ou détruits, massacres collectifs ou exécutions, viols, clercs assassinés, nobles et soldats tués, etc. Ce constat, qui aurait été dressé à la demande des états de Blois - selon l’aveu même de l'auteur dans sa préface -, contribua à mobiliser l’opinion sur l’ampleur des désastres occasionnés. Rédigé par un protestant français et publié sous ce pseudonyme de Froumenteau, l’essai a été parfois attribué à Nicolas Barnaud. (Adams, F-1084. Einaudi, 5204. Haag, 'France protestante', VI, 747.

Nicholls [a.k.a., Niccols, Nicols], John.
London: Imprinted by Christopher Barker, 1581. Small 8vo (14.5 cm; 5.75"). [98] ff. Nicholls (1555–84?) was educated at Brasenose but did not take a degree. Instead, he left upon completion of his course work and returned to his native Glamorgan, Wales, where he soon obtained a curacy. In 1577 he left his position, gave up his allegiance to the Church of England, travelled to Rome, and voluntarily submitted himself to the => Inquisition where he formally recanted his Protestantism. He was welcomed warmly into the Roman Catholic Church, and in 1580 was back in England. He was arrested in Islington, London, sent to the Tower, recanted his Catholicism, became an informer denouncing various Catholics of his acquaintance. His allegiance changed yet again in 1582, in Rouen, where he recanted his most previous recantation and was => very cautiously received back in the Church of Rome. Death came soon after. "Nicholls died on the continent in want and, probably, depression, most likely in 1584. He has been condemned by biographers for his want of constancy in what are assumed to be genuine, if bewildering, changes of faith and profession. Yet it may have been the case that there was a kind of cynical consistency in his animal sense of self-preservation, one actively encouraged by the systems of religious repression and polarization under which he managed for a while to operate with some success" (ODNB). => He was clearly one of the most troubled figures in the history of Recusancy. This copy of his Declaration has setting 2 of the title-page, setting 1 of leaf N1r, and set … [Click Below for Full Description]

CORROZET, Gilles;BONFONS, Nicolas;
Paris, Nicolas Bonfons, 1581 - In-16 de (16), 328 ff., veau fauve, dos à nerfs, tranches rouges (reliure du XVIIIe siècle). Quatrième édition posthume, en partie originale. C'est en 1561, sept ans avant sa mort, que Corrozet avait publié sa dernière mouture des Antiquitez. Vers 1572, la veuve de Jean Bonfons en donne une nouvelle version avec quelques additions, suivie, un an plus tard environ, d'une seconde édition actualisée jusqu'aux événements de l'année 1571. En 1576, son fils Nicolas Bonfons - actif de 1572 à 1629 - continue l'?uvre de Corrozet jusqu'à cette même date. L'année suivante, il réimprime son ouvrage à l'identique. En 1581, enfin, Bonfons publie cette nouvelle version augmentée et développée jusqu'en 1580. Dans son exorde, Bonfons ne voulant pas être nommé "pipeur du labeur d'autruy" rend hommage à Corrozet qui a "premièrement ramassé et mis en lumière" ce livre. Il annonce cependant avoir largement augmenté l'ouvrage de son devancier et l'avoir publié à la prière de ses amis. Cette nouvelle édition comprend désormais 32 chapitres : les deux premiers de la dernière édition de Corrozet ont été fondus en un seul et trois chapitres ont été ajoutés pour restituer les événements advenus depuis 1560. Y sont évoqués les épisodes tragiques des guerres de religion, et notamment le massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy. En fin de volume, se trouvent, conformément aux précédentes éditions, les listes habituelles, dont celle des rues de Paris. Belle marque d'éditeur de Nicolas Bonfons sur la page de titre.

Nicholls [a.k.a., Niccols, Nicols], John.
Imprinted by Christopher Barker, 1581. Nicholls (1555-84?) was educated at Brasenose but did not take a degree. Instead, he left upon completion of his course work and returned to his native Glamorgan, Wales, where he soon obtained a curacy.

He has been condemned by biographers for his want of constancy in what are assumed to be genuine, if bewildering, changes of faith and profession.

This copy of his Declaration has setting 2 of the title-page, setting 1 of leaf N1r, and setting 1 of L1r (see ESTC). The title-page ha … [Click Below for Full Description]
