        Paraphrasis Psalmorum Davidis poetica multo quam antehac castigatior

      Antuerpiae [Antwerp]: ex officina Christophori Plantini 16mo {but with horizontal chain lines} (12 cm; 4.75"). 285, [1] pp.. 1582 Second => Plantin press edition of George Buchanan's paraphrases of the Psalms, printed in the year of his death, after a first in 1580. The Scottish-born Buchanan (1506–82) was a historian and poet who served as tutor to James VI, the online DNB saying of him that "although his reputation has fluctuated[,] Buchanan has never ceased to be a figure of considerable stature." Printed in italic type with sparing use of woodcut initials or ornaments, the work was clearly meant to be a pocket companion. Evidence of readership: An early reader has reacted to the text by adding manicules, underlining many phrases and words, adding an occasional word or four in the margin, and filling the front and rear pastedowns and the rear blank pages with notes and comments. Provenance: Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding: Contemporary alum-tawed leather elaborately tooled and embossed in blind with a variety of rolls, fillets, and stamps, including one roll of a vine pattern with bust medallions. All edges carmine. WorldCat locates only two copies in U.S. libraries. Binding as above, lightly rubbed; old library stamps (as per provenance above) on rear pastedown and final blank page. A very good copy.

Deutsche Beschreibung einer Reise ins Heilige Land und den Vorderen Orient in Tagebuchform, mit zahlreichen authentischen und zuverlässigen Beobachtungen. Die Schilderungen des Botanikers Rauwolf (1535-96) gelten zugleich als die "früheste in Europa gedruckte Kunde vom Kaffee" (Müller, Kaffee, 173). "Highly influential travel account by the learned Augsburg physician and botanist who journeyed to Jerusalem in the years 1573 to 1576. The 8th chapter of part I contains the celebrated descriptions of the coffee drink and of the coffee berry [...] Rauwolf's account of coffee as a social drink of the East is thought to be the earliest in a printed book" (Hünersdorff/H. II, 1221). "Rauwolf [...] made a hazardous journey in many parts of the East to collect foreign plants; his herbarium is now carefully preserved at the Rijksherbarium in Leiden" (Hunt 146). "He was the first modern botanist to collect and describe the flora of the regions east of the Levantine coast" (Norman). "Rauwolfs Bedeutung als Reisender liegt darin, daß er die Grenzen des Bekannten vom levantinischen Ländergürtel ostwärts entschieden auf das Zweistromland vorgeschoben und als erster wissenschaftlich Gebildeter darüber berichtet hat" (Henze IV, 546ff.).

        Kalendarium Gregorianum perpetuum. Cum Privilegio Summi Pontificis, & aliorum Principum

      Rome: [after 3 April] 1582. 8vo (152 x 98 mm). Collation: A4 ?4 B-D8 E4. [36] leaves. Roman types. Printed in red and black throughout. Woodcut arms of Pope Gregory XIII on title, woodcut initials. Small hole in ff. B6-8, repaired in C1, affecting a few letters, marginal hole or paper flaw in quire E; faint dampstain on title, stain to upper inner margins. Later plain blue wrappers (removed from a volume, remains of paper index tab on title-leaf); modern fitted linen case. D. Cesare Uberti, 19th-century signature on title.*** Second? edition of Gregory XIII?'s presentation in 1582 to the Catholic world of his reformed calendar, still in use throughout the world today. This is one of four recorded editions of unknown priority published very soon after the (virtually unobtainable) first edition, all from the same press of Domenico Basa. The Julian Calendar, in continuous use since its introduction by Julius Caesar in 46 BCE, in 365 days divided into 12 months, with a leap year every four years, did not quite correspond with the actual period of one full earthly revolution of the sun, leading to an accumulated error of 10 days by the sixteenth century. More importantly to the Church, this led to a wide divergence of the dates of Easter from the time of year stipulated by the First Council of Nicaea in 325. Pope Gregory XIII ordered that the situation be remedied in his bull Inter gravissimas of 24 February 1582 (published here), by skipping 10 days, to be removed from October, so that October 4th of that year would be followed by October 15th. In order to permanently rectify the lag between calendar and real time, the system recommended several years earlier by the late astronomer Luigi Giglio (Aloysius Lilius) was adopted, in which the century years were only to be leap years when divisible by 400 (i.e., a century year is only a leap year every 400 years). Other small tweaks perfected the new calendar. ?"On 1 March the text was published at the doors of St. Peter's Basilica, at the chancellery in Rome ... and at the Campo dei Fiori.... As a reward to Antonio Giglio [Aloigi Giglio?'s brother and heir] and to avoid uncontrolled reprinting of the calendar, the Pope issued on 3 April 1582 a brief prohibiting any publication of the calendar without the approval of Giglio [also published here]. Giglio from his side promised together with the printer [Basa] to provide plenty of copies in due time. Soon the nuncios received a few copies to be handed over to princes, bishops and other personalities together with a promise of cases full of books soon to be sent. However, these copies were so much delayed that scarcity of calendars became an obstacle in carrying out the reform?" (Ziggelaar). The copies Ziggelaar refers to were those of the first edition, printed in large octavo format on fine paper, in 30 leaves, in a limited press-run for presentation. Hence the pressing need for rapid publication of cheaper editions ?- the promised ?"cases full of books?" ?- a need met first by Basa himself and soon after by printers in Venice, Lyon, Toulouse, and Antwerp, with more editions, including translations into German, French and Greek, appearing the following year in several cities. The new calendar not surprisingly met with resistance among Protestants, and was not adopted in England until 1752 (Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, 3rd ed. rev.) Its implementation was initially rocky even in some Catholic countries, due to delays in receiving permission to print it (see Delatour for a detailed description of the French case). The present edition may be the first of these more economical editions of the new calendar. Basa farmed these smaller 36-leaf editions out to four different publisher-booksellers, whose names appear in the colophons: Giovanni Osmarino, Vincenzo Accolti, heirs of Antonio Blado, and Francesco Zanetti, as here; no priority has been established (although the numbering of EDIT-16 puts our edition first). That this edition was printed in haste is evident from the less than perfect register of the red printing, most noticeable in the 12-page paschal table printed at the end. Clearly the printer did not anticipate the high demand for the Calendar and was obliged to work quickly, setting and printing a succession of editions. Although sometimes referred to as separate issues of a single second edition, these Basa printings seem to be indeed individual editions rather than issues (for example, the Basa-Blado edition, of which the Herzog August Bibliothek copy is digitized, shares no typesetting with our edition and is printed in gothic types). EDIT-16 records several variant settings within each edition. The text of all the Basa editions contains the Papal briefs along with the perpetual calendar and the essentials of the new system of computus, with chapters on the Golden Numbers, the lunar calendar (epacts), Dominical letters, and indiction. The unsigned quire bound in this copy after quire A (sometimes bound at the end) contains the corrected calendar for 1582. Due to the ephemeral nature of these pamphlet publications, the early editions are quite rare. Most catalogue records are also unreliable. Of the first edition, there appears to be a single copy in an American institution, at the Adler Planetarium. Of the four smaller format Basa editions of 1582, I locate 4 copies in US libraries: Morgan (Basa/Accolti edition, misdescribed in OCLC), Princeton, LC, and Williams, these three all from the Basa/Zanetti edition, though described as in 64 pages (apparently the cataloguer who created the original record did not count the 4 leaves of the unsigned quire containing the corrections for 1582, listed separately in the catalogue notes.) EDIT-16 CNCE 11278, variant C. Cf. August Ziggelaar, ?"The papal bull of 1582 promulgating a reform of the calendar,?" in Coyne, Hoskin and Pedersen, eds., Gregorian reform of the calendar: Proceedings of the Vatican conference to commemorate its 400th anniversary 1582-1982 (Vatican City, 1983), pp. 220-21. Cf. Jérôme Delatour, ?"Noël le 15 décembre: la réception du calendrier grégorien en France (1582),?" in Hubert, ed., Construire le temps: normes et usages chronologiques du moyen âge à l'époque contemporaine (Geneva 2000).

        L'Universale fabrica del mondo, overo cosmografia

      Venice: A. Muschio, for A. San Vito at Naples, 1582. Small quarto, with five folding engraved maps; a few leaves slightly embrowned, a few stains; early ink ownership inscriptions on title (one crossed out causing tear), ink stamp erased from title; some interesting early ink marginalia, endpapers renewed but overall a good copy in contemporary flexible vellum, manuscript spine label. With the Ruscelli world map. Best edition of this important sixteenth-century summary of geographical knowledge, containing for the first time the suite of engraved maps. First published in Naples in 1573, this is one of two subsequent editions of the book printed in Venice for distribution in Naples and the first to include the fine double hemisphere world map, and a double-page map for each of the four sections that divide the book: Asia, Africa, Europe and America.The world map is based on Ruscelli's, which was the first double hemisphere world map to appear in an Atlas (Ruscelli's version of Ptolemy's Geografia, Venice, 1561), and which had in turn been based on Gastaldi's world map of 1548. No southern continent appears in this version, while the mass of land joining Asia and America is described as Terra Incognita. Subsequent versions of the map appeared in various editions of Ruscelli's Ptolemy (1562, 1564 and 1574), but not until the end of the century was a southern continent added. The appearance here in Anania's work is actually its last appearance before it was revised to show a south land.On the other hand both the Asia and the America maps included here (also based on those used by Ruscelli for his edition of Ptolemy) show significant parts of a southern continent: in the Asia map Nova Guinea is shown at the south-east with below it, separated by a narrow strait, a section of a southern land 'Terre incognitae Australia pars'. To the left are Java major and Java minor, Bataban, Terralia and Timor. In the America map the large land mass to the south-west is captioned 'Nova Guinea Andrea Corsalus Florent: videtur eam sub nomine Terrae Piccinnacoli designare': the reference is to Andrea Corsali's letter first published in 1516 in which he recorded (in Eden's 1555 translation) 'navigating towards the east, they say there lies the land of Piccinacoli, and many believe that this land is connected towards the east in the south with the coast of Bresil or Verzino, because, on account of the size of this land of Verzino, it is not as yet on all sides discovered'.Lach discusses Anania's work at some length, and emphasises its importance for its lengthy treatment of Asia; he describes the four treatises which comprise the work as 'far more sophisticated and integrated views of the overseas world than contemporaries could obtain from the brief references in the annalistic histories. Each treatise deals with the contemporary state of knowledge on each of the four geographical regions into which he divides the world...'.

        DELLE RIME DEL SIGNOR TORQUATO TASSO. Parte prima (e seconda). Insieme con altri componimenti del medesimo.

      (Aldo Manuzio) 1582 Opera completa in due volumi, dedicata al Sig.Francesco Melchiori e al Cavaliere Hercole Cato. Cm.12,5x7. Pg.(24), 477, (3); (24), 477, (3). Legatura ottocentesca in pergamena rigida. Doppi tasselli con titoli e filetti in oro ai dorsi. Con la celebre ancora aldina impressa ai due frontespizi. Tassello cartaceo apposto al recto del frontespizio del primo volume a mendare una minima mancanza. L'Opera comprende, nella prima parte, numerose rime, l'"Aminta" (favola boschereccia), le "Conclusioni amorose", "Romeo" (dialogo del Giuoco), "Paragone tra l'Italia, & la Francia", "Lettera all'Eccellentiss. Sig.Duca di Urbino", "Dell'Amor Vicendevole tra 'l Padre, e il Figliuolo", e "Forno, della nobiltà". Il secondo volume contiene, oltre ad altre rime: "Tragedia non finita", "Rinaldo", "Lettione recitata nell'Accademia Ferrarese sopra il sonetto di Monsig. Della Casa", "Questa vita mortal, etc.", "Il Padre di Famiglia, all'Illustriss. Signor Scipione Gonzaga". Si tratta della seconda edizione delle "Rime" tassiane, pubblicate la prima volta da Aldo il Giovane solo nell'anno precedente, il 1581. "Come in tutti i canzonieri del Cinquecento, anche in quello del Tasso il fondo è petrarchesco, e alle liriche d'amore s'alternano quelle encomiastiche, d'occasione e religiose, con la solita varietà di metri: sonetti, canzoni, ottave, madrigali. Le rime amorose furono scritte in gran parte per Lucrezia Bendidio, per Laura Peperara e per la Contessa di Scandiano, Leonora Sanvitale, ma neppure queste, che sono le migliori, rivelano un sentimento profondo e tanto meno una passione ardente e impetuosa...".

Zusammengebunden mit dem ersten Versuch einer modernen Ansprüchen gerechten Systematisierung des Sachsenspiegels durch Melchior Kling dieser in dritter Ausgabe. Der Sachsenspiegel ist das wohl bedeutendste und älteste deutsche Rechtsbuch und wurde von Eike von Repgow um 1230 in lateinischer Sprache abgefasst und später ins Deutsche übersetzt. Mit dem Sachsenspiegel beginnt die deutsche Rechtsgeschichte des geschriebenen Rechts und der Jurisprudenz. "Der Sachsenspiegel ist das bedeutendste und in etwa auch älteste, deutsche Rechtsbuch. Er entstand zwischen 1215 und 1235 in Mitteldeutschland als niederdeutsche Überarbeitung einer ursprünglich lateinischen Erstfassung, erlangte schnell Ansehen und weiteste Verbreitung und wurde bereits im 14. Jahrhundert als Gesetz betrachtet. Sein Geltungsgebiet umfaßte in den folgenden Jahrhunderten große Teile der damaligen abendländischen Welt und für den engeren Bereich des deutschen Volkes stellte man 1498 fest, daß allein ein Drittel der deutschen Nation nach dem Sachsenspiegel lebte. Der Sachsenspiegel ist nicht nur das älteste umfassende deutsche Rechtsbuch, sondern zugleich auch das erste große Prosawerk in deutscher Sprache und stellt somit ein für seine Zeit einzigartiges Rechts- und Sprachdenkmal dar. Mit ihm beginnt die eigentliche Geschichte der deutschen Rechtswissenschaft." (Kaspers 34). Schönes Exemplar in einem bemerkswerten Einband, datiert ein Jahr nach Druckdatum. Nice copy of this famous book in a 1583 dated german binding.

        Arnobii Disputationum adversus gentes libri septem, recogniti & aucti. Ex bibliotheca Theodori Canteri Ultraiectini, cuius etiam notae adiectae sunt

      Antwerpen (Antverpiae), Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1582. 8vo. 285,(1 errata, & 2 blank) p. Tasteful modern half calf. 18 cm (Ref: Belg. Typ. 172; STC Dutch p. 14; Adams A1996; Voet 596 variant A; Sorgeloos 113; Dibdin 1,215: 'An excellent edition, in which the modesty and learning of its editor are successfully opposed to the rashness of his predecessor Gelenius' (in his edition of 1546); not in Brunet) (Details: Woodcut printer's device on the title; red morocco letterpiece on the back; the binder used a broad strip of vellum as spine lining; this strip was probably cut from an old manuscript contract by the original binder) (Condition: Name on the title; very small tear near the right lower corner of the title; occasional old ink underlinings on ca. 70 pages; right margin of last 60 pages slightly waterstained, the last gathering however more so) (Note: Arnobius, a teacher of rhetoric at Sicca Veneria in Numidia 'was suddenly converted to Christianity (ca. A.D. 295) and a year or 2 later, at the instance of his bishop, wrote seven books 'Adversus Nationes', Against the Pagans. His work throws light on the Christian-pagan debate immediately before the Great Persecution, while the venom of his attack on traditional Roman paganism shows that this was by no means dead'. (OCD 2nd edition p. 122) His style is easy-flowing. Arnobius makes little use of the New, and none of the Old Testament. His view of God is platonic. The unintended side effect of the efforts of Arnobius and other Church Fathers to ridicule or crush paganism, was that their writings form an archive which preserves knowledge and practices of polytheism in the years of its decline in late antiquity. Just as the early christians bolstered their piety by contrasting it with the demonic foulness of pagan religion, so the protestants of the 16th century used their knowledge of pagan idolatry to scourge their catholic adversaries. Critics of Catholicism, like Calvin, compared catholic mass e.g. with the bloody rituals of the pagans, and used the sacrifices of the ancients to score theological points against their opponents. 'Protestants detected in the Catholic cult of images, the pagan idols so well described by late antique critics like Arnobius'. (The Classical Tradition, Cambr. Mass., 2010, p. 678, s.v. Paganism) The work of Arnobius was first published in Rome in 1542 (although the preface is dated 1543). Other editions followed in 1546, 1560 and 1580. Our edition of 1582 was produced by the Dutch scholar Theodorus Canterus (Dirk Canter), 1545-1617. He followed the edition of Gelenius of 1546, who sometimes rewrote the text 'ope ingenii' to make difficult passages intelligible. Canterus inserts some modifications of his own, and returns for readings to the editio princeps of 1542, edited by Faustus Sabaeus. This was a wise policy and a sensible thing to do. Canter's textual and exegetical notes appear as endnotes. See for Canter and his Arnobius edition 'History of Scholarship: A Selection of Papers from the Seminar on the History of Scholarship Held Annually at the Warburg Institute', edited by Christopher Ligota, Jean-Louis Quantin. Oxford University Press, 2006, page 97-100). The history of classical philology saw strange creatures, and Dirk Canter sure was one. He was the brother of the great classical scholar Willem Canter, studied classics in Paris under Lambinus, but was the rest of his life primarily a political and religious adventurer in his hometown, the city of Utrecht. He was there mayor, political agitator, religious opportunist and extremist, a conspirator to overthrow the government of the city to seize power. He was banished in 1611. Still he managed to find time to produce this excellent scholarly edition and other philological work, such as 'Variarum lectionum libri duo', Antwerp 1574) (NNBW 1,558) (Provenance: the signature on the first and last page is probably of a member of the Soissy family, originating from the Champagne) (Collation: A-S8, (S7 verso: errata; S8 blank) (Photographs on request)

Questa seconda ediz., pubblicata nel novembre dello stesso anno della prima, ?deve riguardarsi come l?ottima fra quelle del Salviati? secondo il Gamba (181, p. 58 - 59), essendo particolarmente accurata, sia per l?integrità del testo che per la competenza delle note del Salviati (Firenze 1540 - 1589), umanista e filologo italiano di nobile famiglia, tra i principali promotori della fondazione dell'Accademia della Crusca nel 1582 e venerato come l?oracolo di Firenze, della Toscana e dell?Italia (cav. Baldelli). Molto bella anche dal punto di vista tipografico sia per l?eleganza e la nitidezza del carattere corsivo che per la finezza dei grandi capil. xilografici abitati (cm 4x4) che ornano l?inizio di ogni novella. Lievi ombreggiature ai margini e qc. lieve alone dovuti all?uso, piccole mancanze riparate al margine delle prime 6 cc. che non interessano il testo, ma solido ottimo vol. Raro. 307 / 29 313

      Frankfurt/Main, 1582. - Small 4to. 18 ff. Modern boards with cover label. The catalogues regularly issued for the Frankfurt Book Fair since 1564 revolutionized the entire book trade, constituting the first sales catalogues proper. "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, 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). VD 16, W 3176. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The specimens, and information included in this book such as classification, origin and locations, methods of cultivation, and medical uses of citrus fruits, was compiled by the Italian Jesuit scholar and professor Giovanni Battista Ferrari. The sumptuous illustrations of the fruit were by Dutch printmaker Cornelius Bloemart, whom was from a family of Dutch artists and was known as a great botanical artist. This series includes 110 plates of depictions of mainly life-size fruits, whole and in section, as well as foliage and flowers, along with a few cultivation and allegorical scenes.

Caroli Clusius Atrebatis opera ex Hispanico sermone Latinus factus, in Epitomen contractus, et quibusdam illustratus. Antwerp, Christopher Plantin, 1582. Four vols in one. 8vo (167 x 106 mm). pp. 43 [1, 4 blank]; 217, [7]; 84, [4]; 88, with woodcut printer's device on titles and woodcut illustrations in text of all four works; very good copies in eighteenth-century vellum-backed boards. I. First edition, and the first printed announcement of Drake's circumnavigation, and containing the earliest descriptions of plants from the western coasts of America. L'Écluse was in London when Drake returned from his epic voyage (1577-80) and received the plants and seeds collected by Drake’s crew. Immediately upon his return to Antwerp he had Plantin print this account, containing descriptions of the specimens collected, notes on localities, and a generous homage to Sir Francis Drake and his crew. As his translation of Acosta’s book on the drug plants of the Orient (the second title in this volume, see below) was already in press, this book was styled as a sequel to the Acosta, and the two almost certainly issued together. The title of the first work reads as 'Some notes on Garcia da Orta's History of Aromatic Plants, along with observations on some plants and other exotic things collected by Sir Francis Drake and his companions on their voyage round the world, and on foreign products received by the author from friends in London'. Among American plants described are cocoa and Mexican jasmine. The work contains 15 mostly full-page woodcuts.II. Third edition of L'Écluse's Latin abridgement and translation of da Orta's book on the plants and medicines of the Orient, based upon his travels in India and Ceylon.III. Second edition of L'Écluse's Latin abridgement and translation of the first two books of Monardes' treatise on the medicinal plants and minerals of the New World, with extensive commentary.IV. First edition of L'Écluse's paraphrase of Acosta's Tratado de las drogas y medicinas de la indias orientales (Burgos, 1578). L'Écluse abridged the text, concentrating on those descriptions of plants he thought detailed and accurate enough, and adding his own commentaries on the plants described. He rejected most of the original woodcuts as being too clumsy and inaccurate for identification purposes. With two woodcuts.Provenance: the Earls of Macclesfield, Shirburn Castle, with engraved bookplate, shelfmark on front pastedown, and blindstamp Macclesfield crest on blank margins of first three leavesI Alden 582.52; Arents (Add.) 69; Hunt 140; Stafleu and Cowan TL2 1146; Voet 1010; see Lenger, Bibliotheca Belgica 3, 767 for an extensive analysis; II Durling 3416; Johnston 120; Voet 1840; Wellcome 4657; III Alden 579.38; Durling 3218; Johnston 119; Voet 1711; Wellcome 4395; IV Alden 582.25; Hunt 139; Voet 1038.

        DISCORSO DELLA VIRTÙ FEMMINILE, E DONNESCA. alla Ser. Sig. Duchessa di Mantova.

      Giunti Bernardo, VENETIA 1582 - (¿500 FEMMINISMO). (cm 20,5) Brossura antica, dorso in pergamena; cc. 8, grande marca al frontis. Edizione originale molto rara. Manca ad Adams, Choix e Parenti. Interessante opera sulla donna come moglie e virtù morale. Platone e Tasso stabiliscono che uomini e donne hanno le stesse virtù per natura, poi si differenziano per le esperienze. Tasso, seguendo Aristotele, afferma che la donna è capace di attività razionale solo riguardo al controllo delle proprie emozioni, ma è incapace di speculazione intellettuale. La sua inferiorità genetica è però eliminata quando è chiamata a ruoli superiori, nobili o regali. Esemplare molto bello e fresco. Camerini II p. 465 n° 15; BM. STC. 660; Graesse VII 39; Raccolta toscana ¿A. Mai¿ N 1433; C. Jordan, ¿Renaissance Feminism¿ NY. 1990 p. 147. Il Census, Iccu, registra solo 9 copie nelle biblioteche italiane.[f62] [Attributes: Hard Cover]
