GONZAGA, Curtio
1582. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Thought be written concurrently with Tasso's 'Jerusalem Delivered,' Curtio Gonzaga's 'Il fido amante' is an heroic poem consisting of 36 songs and passages. This work celebrates the life of the Gonzaga family, outlining celebrations and accomplishments, along with his battles of the supernatural and occult magic. The protagonist, thought to be Gonzaga himself, suffers from the slavery of love and follows blindly as the title suggests - the faithful lover. An exceedingly rare first edition printing of Gonzaga's famed collection of poetry known to be one of the favorites in Tasso's library. [Attributes: First Edition]

Holy Bible
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. In 1566, French theologian Rene Benoit printed a French translation of Jerome's Latin Bible. Benoit was a Roman Catholic Bishop of Troyes; however, his Bible was highly criticized for being too Calvinistic in his interpretation. However, this accusation may have been warranted. Benoit was a close friend of Henry IV, a notable Protestant royal. According to Chambers, this 1582 French edition was shared by a number of printers including Crevel, Lescuyer, Mallard and Pavie, all of which were publishing in Rouen. It should be noted that the Crevel edition is the only printing not included in the USTC. [Attributes: First Edition]

RICCI, Matteo and Nicolas TRIGAULT.
De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, col. 240; Cordier, Sinica, col. 810; Löwendahl 58; Lust 839; cf. Hanotiau 14 (2nd French edition). The first French edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci, an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault, who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). Binding rubbed; folding plan with clean tear and slightly wrinkled; some occasional staining. Good copy.

LOPES DE CASTANHEDA, Fernão
London: Thomas East, 1582. Small quarto, printed in black letter with woodcut initials; a few contemporary marginal notes; nineteenth-century calf, very well rebacked. The first English edition of one of the most important works of the first great age of discovery, a rare and important source for the history of Portuguese expansion in the East. This first book of Castanheda's work, originally published in Coimbra in 1551, was translated by Nicholas Lichefield and, most appropriately, dedicated to Sir Francis Drake. Only this first book was published in English; as the Hill catalogue notes, 'the English edition is very rare'. Most of Castanheda's great book is devoted to the Portuguese thrust into Asia in the early 16th century, chronicling their epic expansion into India, the East Indies, and China between 1497 and 1525. Castanheda himself spent some two decades in the Portuguese colonies in the East, and so was well equipped to write this account. It is one of the primary sources for the early Portuguese trading empire, a model that the British were beginning to emulate at the time of publication. Penrose describes the book as 'an impartial book of outspoken sincerity which was the fruit of years of residence in the East.''In translating this history of Portuguese eastern imperialism to 1525, Nicholas Lichefield gave to English readers the accounts of Diaz, Covilhan, Da Gama, Cabral, the cousins Albuquerque, Pacheco and other Portuguese pioneers of eastern exploration, trade and conquest. In these narratives he set forth the navigations, battles, difficulties, and triumph … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dedica dell'A. ad Alfonso II, duca di Ferrara. Cfr. Gamba,727: “"Prima edizione del celebre commento del Castelvetro", il più applaudito tra gli antichi. Il testo è copiato, ma scorrettamente, dalla edizione Aldina, 1514. Il Menagio nelle sue ‘Mescolanze' chiama a buon diritto il Castelvetro ‘accuratissimo ed acutissimo'. I caratteri, la carta, gli errori dei quali è imbrattata ogni faccia di questo libro, fanno vero torto ad un lavoro letterario di tanta fatica; ed ottimo consiglio è stato quello di riprodurlo modernamente con attente cure e con magnificenza di stampa: e tale riuscì l'ediz. di Venezia, Zatta, 1756, vol. 2 con figure” - Adams,II,864, p. 67”. Testo con pesanti arross. nella parte superiore e con qualche fiorit.

Raro calendario, uno dei primi fondati sulla riforma gregoriana del 1582; nello stesso anno ne vennero pubblicati diversi da altri editori. La riforma del calendario gregoriano, intitolata al suo ispiratore papa Gregorio XIII, era stata richiesta dal Concilio di Trento. Trascorsero 10 giorni da giovedì 4 ottobre a venerdì 15 ottobre 1582, per superare il ritardo accumulato dal calendario Julien nell'anno astronomico. Il nuovo calendario fu applicato negli stati cattolici, poi nei paesi protestanti, e continuò ad estendersi alla maggior parte del mondo fino all'inizio del XX secolo. Esemplare in buone condizioni, alcune pagine in lieve ingiallimento, leggermente allentato ad alcuni quinterni. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Each year has a separate title as well as pages dealing variously with the calculations of the movements of celestial bodies, planetary positions, solar and lunar eclipses, festivals, annual revolutions, fixed stars, and much more. Contemporary vellum; text browned with some sections waterstained, still generally, a very good copy from the library of Owen Gingerich with his bookplate. First edition of the Novae ephemerides, the second part of Magini's famous tables to 1620, his first published work containing the rare first ephemerides for the new Gregorian calendar. The first part (Ephemerides coelestium motuum), published the same year, only covered the years through 1600. In 1588 Magini (1555-1617) was chosen over Galileo to occupy the chair of mathematics at the University of Bologna after the death of Egnatio Danti. He was an outstanding astronomer and a correspondent of Tycho Brahe and Kepler. Indeed, Kepler, who referred to Magini as "summus in professione mathematica vir," invited him to help in the compilation of new astronomical tables (afterwards known as the Rudophine Tables). He made a thorough study of the writings of Copernicus, whose calculations of the celestial movements he considered far more exact than those of his predecessors. However, he defended the Ptolemaic system of astronomy, despite the fact that he did incorporate Copernicus' improvements of planetary theory in this work. Here … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio, bound in contemporary vellum using a manuscript leaf, 168 leaves. Woodcut vignette on title. In excellent condition with some soiling and browning. Born in 1514, Bavarian historian and statesman Wiguleus Hund played an important role in the development of Bavarian policy throughout the mid 14th century, particularly in the establishment of the Landsberger Bund in 1556 which created a covenant between Duke Albrecht V of Bavaria, King Ferdinand Archduke of Austria, and the archbishopric of Salzburg. Early in his career as a historian, Hund discovered an early copy of the medieval hero epic Nibelungenlied, or Pruenner Codex, at the castle Prunn in Altmuhltal which would later be regarded as the national epic of the Germans. Hund published several works on the history of Bavarian nobility later in his career including Metropolis Salisburgensis and Bayrisch Stammen-Books I-III. [Attributes: First Edition]

GERBI Lorenzo.
Appresso Rosato Tintinnassi, In Orvieto, 1582. Prima edizione. Dedicatoria al Boncompagni di Ascanio Giacobacci, curatore dell'edizione. Cm.19,3x13,7. Pg.(12), 320. Legatura in piena pergamena rigida con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Tagli spruzzati. Stemma del Buoncompagno, figlio naturale di Papa Gregoprio XIII, impresso al frontespizio. Capilettera e fregi calcografici. Al verso dell'ultima carta marca tipografica con veduta di arbusti, alberi, fuoco, fumo, nuvole e il sole, il tutto in cornice allegorica con il motto "Et caelum terrena petunt". Doppio timbro al frontespizio, uno di biblioteca estinta, l'altro con l'indicazione "duplicato" (con successiva vendita all'asta). Le prime cinque carte e i fogli di guardia sono interessati da bruniture, forellini e antichi restauri. Per un chiaro errore del legatore non è presente il quaderno delle pg.176-184, per il resto esemplare genuino. Alla dedicatoria segue una "Tavola de' ragionamenti et Novelle che nell'opera si contengono". Il presente esemplare proviene dalla vendita all'asta. Rara edizione originale di un articolato racconto, quasi un romanzo in accezione moderna, composto da Lorenzo Gerbi (San Marcello Pistoiese, 1530-1593), frate francescano, uso ad adoperare due pseudonimi, quello di Evangelista Marcellino e quello, appunto, di Lorenzo Selva. Prendendo dichiarato spunto dalle "Metamorfosi" di Apuleio, il testo narra in forma allegorica le vicissitudini di Acrisio, nato «vicino al fonte onde nasce il Reno», riferendosi alla zona circostante l'altopiano pistoiese delle Piastre. Considerato appunto un antesignano del … [Click Below for Full Description]

MONTAIGNE Michel de
1582. 8vo (150 x 95mm.) [8], 806, [2] pp. French late 19th century green morocco, spine lettered in gilt, inner edges gilt, g.e. Bordeaux, Simon Millanges, 1582. Second edition of one of the most famous books printed in the sixteenth century. The history of the early editions of Montaigne?s Essais is not straightforward. The early editions of the Essais are like the first three editions of Newton; they are all ?substantive?, i.e. they rewrite the text. The work acquires strength as it proceeds. But whereas in the case of the Principia, the rewrite consists of small additions or refinements, albeit important ones, with Montaigne the text only attains its full, but by no means final form, in the edition of 1588. The first edition, which appeared on 1 March 1580, is almost a trial run, the second edition being massively enlarged and improved. Both consist of two books only, and were printed in Bordeaux by Millanges. The second edition was published the year after Montaigne?s return from his tour abroad, mostly in Italy, which lasted from September 1580 until the very end of November 1581. It has 408 leaves (pp. [8], 806, [2]) with 30 lines to a full page plus headline. Catchwords are on the versos of each leaf (and occasionally on the rectos). The individual chapters are numbered in Roman numerals. The sonnets of La Boétie are not so well laid out, one indeed beginning with the first line on one page and the remainder on the verso. Sonnet 29 is printed on its own on p. [294]. It is however a vast improvement on the 1580 edition although there is still a list of corrigenda (in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Very rare first edition of Florens van Leiden's work on Catholic martyrs in Belgium bound with the second edition, published a year after the first, of Thomas Bourchier's description of Catholic Martyrs under Henry VIII and under Elisabeth I. "Bourchier was probably educated at Magdalen Hall, Oxford, but there is no record of his having graduated in that university. When Queen Mary attempted to re-establish the friars in England, Bourchier became a member of the new convent at Greenwich; but on the queen's death he left the country. After spending some years in Paris, where the theological faculty of the Sorbonne conferred on him the degree of doctor, he travelled to Rome. He at first joined the convent of the Reformed Franciscans at the church of S. Maria di Ara Coeli, and taught at Genoa and Turi … [Click Below for Full Description]
