Zt., vorne mit figürlicher Platte (Potrait August Kurfürst von Sachsen), hinten Wappen "VD16 S 4514; Goed II, 364; ADB XXXIII, 150f. Erste Ausgabe dieses umfangreichen Werkes, in dem der protestantische Dichter Schuward das Wesen und Wirken der Regenten erklärt. Die Liste der Quellen zu Beginn ist sehr eindrucksvoll und tatsächlich werden einige Hundert Autoren zitiert mit Aussagen darüber, wie ein Herrscher sein sollte, wie er oft tatsächlich ist, wie es ihm und seinen Untertanen gut oder schlecht ergehen kann und wie er entsprechend enden könnte etc. Interessanterweise nimmt das Kapitel über die Laster der Regenten den weitaus grössten Teil ein, wobei nicht nur die Untaten der römischen Caesaren aufgezählt, sondern auch lange Listen neuzeitlicher Korruption aufgeführt werden. Schliesslich folgen Kataloge mit Herrschaftsabfolgen sortiert nach verschiedenen Ländern. "Die Regententafel zählt z. B. 48 biblische Ehrentitel und 46 Laster der Obrigkeit auf, bringt aber auch nützliche historische und geographische Uebersichten." (ADB). - Hübscher Prägeband, vorne mit Portrait des Kurfürsten August von Sachsen. Deckel kaum sichtbar hinterlegt, Vorsätze erneuert, äusserlich kaum merkliche Restaurierungen. Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, wenige Lagen stärker, etwas fleckig, zu Beginn und am Ende etwas knittrig in den Rändern, insgesamt aber gut erhalten und in hübschem, dekorativem Einband. " [Attributes: First Edition]

        Mausoleo di Adriano

      1583 - Bulino, 1583, datato in lastra in basso a destra; con l’indirizzo di Claudio Duchetti. Esemplare nel primo stato di quattro descritto da Huelsen. Magnifca prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, leggere pieghe di carta, in ottime condizioni. Nel 1583 Claudio Duchetti pubblica questa ricostruzione del Mausoleo di Adriano, basata sull’illustrazione contenuta a pagina 6 nel libro di Antonio Labacco "Libro appartenente all’architettura", pubblicato a Roma nel 1559. La lunga iscrizione nel margine fornisce un’affermazione interessante, e cioè che l’imponente pigna di bronzo, oggi nel cortile del Belvedere, ma allora collocato nell’atrio della Basilica di San Pietro, originariamente si trovava proprio sulla sommità del mausoleo, come mostra la ricostruzione. L’incisione è inserita nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Engraving, 1583, dated in the lower margin, with name of editor Claudio Duchetti. Magnificient work on contemporary laid paper, thin margins, in excellent condition. In 1583 Claudio Duchetti published a reconstruction of the Tomb of Hadrian, based upon the illustration on page 6 in Antonio Labacco’s "Libro appartenente all’architettura", published in Rome in 1559. The anonymous print is inscribed with a long text below, with an interesting claim: the large bronze pine code then located in the atrium of Old St Peter’s, today in Belvedere, was originally located, as is shown in the print, on the summit of the structure. The engraving in included in Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Huelsen, n. 128 a/d; Witcombe, p. 326. Dimensioni 370 430mm

Bautz XIV, 1299ff.; VD16 N118 - Erste Ausgabe der gegen Nigrinus gerichteten Streitschrift, "welche, wie kaum ein anderes seiner Werke, die ungemeine Belesenheit des Verfassers bekundet, aber in einem milderen u. versöhnlicheren Tone geschrieben ist" (ADB XXIII, 260). - Johannes Nas [Nasi] (Bamberg 1534-1590 Brixen), Franziskaner, Weihbischof in Brixen, zunächst Schneider. In seiner Jugend begeisterte er sich für Martin Luther. Nachdem er jedoch die "Nachfolge Christi" studiert hatte, konvertierte er, wurde katholisch (1552) und trat in das Franziskanerkloster in München ein. Nach seiner Priesterweihe im Jahr 1557 übersiedelte er 1559 in das Kloster in Ingolstadt. In Rom war er als Prediger vom Papst und von den Kardinälen sehr geschätzt. Der Papst schenkte ihm den Titel: "Sedis apostolicae concinator". Ferdinand II berief ihn nach Innsbruck, wo er die Nachfolge des Petrus Canisius Hofprediger wurde. Als solcher geriet "der wortgewaltige und streitsüchtige Franziskaner" (J. Gelmi) schnell mit den Jesuiten in Streit. Trotz allem erwarb sich N. für die Errichtung der Tiroler Franziskanerprovinz große Verdienste. Bald darauf wurde er (1580) Weihbischof in Brixen. Auch da gab es Streit um ihn: 1583 brach ein offener Konflikt aus mit dem Brixner Generalvikar Adam von Arz. Nach kurzem Aufenthalt in Lambach in Oberösterreich kam N. 1586 wieder nach Brixen. Lapidar umreisst Gelmi die Persönlichkeit des N.: "N. war begabt, aber exzentrisch und an vielen Konflikten durch seine grobe Art selbst schuld. Er erwarb sich um die Erneuerung der Tiroler Kirche große Verdienste." (S. 494). Sein Grab findet sich in der Hofkirche zu Innsbruck. - Die Holzschnitte zeigen Kämpfe der Truppen von den Türmen Babylons und des himmlischen Jerusalems gegen apokalyptische Drachen und Ungeheuer.

        Tractatus de differentiis et curatione febrium ac de sanguinis missione r EDITION ORIGINALE

Not in Brunet or other French catalogues. Not in French National Library's Italian catalogue either. Modern vellum, flaps. 8vo, (16) 76 ll.A treatise on different types of fever (hectic, erratic, ?plague-like) and - what's more unusual - on the circulation of the blood. William Harvey gave a full description of the circulation of blood in 1628; this treatise thus comes in the wake of, and at the time of, the great discoveries on the blood. Galen placed the origin of blood in the liver and this view was not challenged before the 16th century. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Absent à Brunet et dans les catalogues français. BN nationale italienne idem. Reliure en plein vélin moderne à rabats. Un Vol. in 8 de (16) 76 f. Traité des différents types de fièvre (hectique, erratique, pestilentielle?) et chose plus rare de la circulation du sang. C'est en 1628 que William Harvey fera de la circulation sanguine une description complète, ce traité se situe donc dans le sillage et l'époque des grandes découvertes concernant le sang. Gallien avait situé l'origine du sang dans le foie et on ne verra pas autrement avant les remises en cause du XVIe siècle.

      (Genève), apud Petrum Santandreanum, 1583. 8vo. (1),196,(18),62 p. Vellum 17 cm (Ref: 1 GLN 3005; Schweiger 2,354, Smitskamp 60) (Details: Six thongs laced through the joints. Printer's mark on the title. Veritas printer's device on the title: a woman, the naked truth, seated on a cubus, holding a radiant sun in her right hand; in her left hand she holds an opened book and a palm leaf; her feet rest on the globe; the garland of fruit which surrounds her shows a ribbon with the text in Greek: Alêtheia Pandamatôr, i.e. Allmighty Truth). (Condition: Vellum partly soiled. Right margin of title slightly thumbed; title slightly browning) (Note: Festus is a 2nd century grammarian, who produced an abbreviation of a lexicographic work by Marcus Verrius Flaccus, a wellknown antiquarian and grammarian living in Augustan Rome. Verrius compiled an enormous lexicon in 80 books, full of unusual, difficult, and archaic words, with discussions about customs, political institutions, belief and Roman law. Remains of his work survive in the epitome of 20 books made by Sextus Pompeius Festus. Festus also added examples found in other sources; the original work of Verrius is completely lost, and only 1 manuscript of Festus survived the Middle Ages in an heavily mutilated form. The first reliable text, which was a great improvement compared to earlier editions was published in 1559 by Antonio Agustin, 1517-1586, who made good use of the Farnese manuscript at Naples, and aimed at reconstructing the text in a strict alphabetical order from A to V, with the help of other Medieval epitomes of Festus. GLN 15-16 states that this edition is a reissue of an edition published in 1581 in Rome. According to Smitskamp 60 Fulvius Ursinus simply reproduces Scaliger's edition without mentioning his name. In the praefatio to the 62 pages with learned notes the reader is assured that this edition (of 1583) is a faithful transcription of the sole surviving MS of Festus) (Collation: A-N8, O4; A-C8, D8 (minus leaf D8) (Photographs on request)

        Ritratto di Johannes Stradanus

      1583 - Bulino, circa 1583, firmato in lastra in basso. Da un disegno di Jan van der Straet detto Stradano. Esemplare di secondo stato, con l’aggiunta delle scritte. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame ed applicata per un lato su antico supporto di collezione, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il Goltzius incide tre differenti ritratti dell’artista fiammingo; questa lastra, incisa nel 1583 è la più antica delle tre, ed è ispirata da un disegno di Stradano da cui il Goltzius prende in prestito anche le figure allegoriche, come documenta un disegno oggi conservato agli Uffizi di Firenze. Le tre donne della cornice ornamentale rappresentano le allegorie dell’architettura, della pittura e del disegno. Bellissimo esemplare di questo suggestivo ritratto. Engraving, 1583 circa, signed on lower plate. After a drawing by Jan van der Straet, also known as Stradano. Example in the second state, with some writings added. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark and laid on collector’s paper, in excellent condition. Goltzius engraved three different portraits of the Flemish artist; this plate is the oldest and derives from a drawing of Stradano with whom Goltzius had business relations. The three women in the decorative frame depict the allegories of architecture, painting and drawing. Beautiful example of a striking portrait.

La serie è composta da tre parti: questa opera è tratta dal "D. Caroli V. Caesaris et Illustriss. Cosmae Medices. Gestae", che raffigura le battaglie vittoriose di Carlo V e Cosimo dei Medici su Piero Strozzi, 1553/1554. Secondo lo Strauss (che elenca le opere di Goltzius) sono nel primo stato di due o di tre.

        Cyprus Insula

      Anversa 1583 - Mappa tratta dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde Le Miroir du Monde è l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle. Due anni dopo, nel 1579, fu data alle stampe l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa, perché Heyns non aveva avuto il tempo necessario per la resa in versi, col titolo Le Miroir du Monde. Il successo di questa edizione francese, è provato proprio dalla seconda edizione pubblicata a soli 4 anni di distanza, nel 1583. Complessivamente Galle pubblicò 5 edizioni in lingua francese, di cui solo le prime due con il titolo Le Miroir du Monde; a partire dal 1588, e così per le edizioni del 1590 e del 1598, il titolo dell’opera fu modificato in Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, e il nome di Peeter Heyns non figurò più sul frontespizio. Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l’ultima – edita nell’anno della morte di Ortelius – conteneva ben 123 mappe. Map published taken from the second French edition of ‘Le Miroir du Monde’, published by Galle & Heyns in 1583, printed by Plantin. Le Miror du Monde is the French transaltion of the Duch poems Spieghel der Werelt, the first modern pocket-atlas, published by Philip Galle with text by Peeter Heyns in 1577, based on Abraham Ortelius’ Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. The maps were drawn and engraved by Galle. Two years later, in 1579, Galle & Heyns published the first French edition: Heyns translated the Dutch poems into French prose because he did not find time to put them into rhyme. This French edition became very popular and in 1583 an amplified reprint appeared. Galle & Heyns published 5 French edition, two with the title Miroir, and three (1588, 1590, 1598) with the title Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, that appeared from 1588 onwards (Peeter Heyns’ name no longer figures on the title pages of the Antwerp editions). Second French edition of this rare miniature atlas, "enlarged with eleven maps. six are double sized" (Koeman p. 275). Compared to the first edition of 1579, which contained 72 maps, the second edition was increased by 11 new maps, for a total of 83 plates. Between 1577 & 1598 Galle issued 11 editions, all printed by Christopher Plantin. Koeman 331:12; Phillips 387 Dimensioni 110 80mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A DEFENSE OF THE SINCERE AND TRUE TRANSLATIONS OF THE HOLIE SCRIPTURES INTO THE ENGLISH TONG, AGAINST THE MANIFOLDE CAUILS, FRIUOLOUS QUARELS, AND IMPUDENT SLAUNDERS OF GREGORIE MARTIN, ONE OF THE READERS OF POPISH DIUINITIE IN THE TRAYTEROUS SEMINARIE OF RHEMES

      Imprinted by Henrie Bynneman, for George Bishop, London 1583 - 170 x 105 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). [6], 95, [1], 1-144, 147-514, 517-532, [4], 71 pp. (mispaginated as ESTC copy, but complete). FIRST EDITION. Late 19th century blue three-quarter morocco, raised bands, gilt titling. Title page with woodcut printer's device, woodcut headpieces, tailpieces, and initials. Printed sidenotes in Greek, Latin, Hebrew, and English. Front flyleaf with ink inscription of "Harlech / Brogyntyn." STC 11430; Lowndes I, 845; Sayle 1511. Spine uniformly darkened, one corner lightly rubbed, three gatherings a bit browned, one leaf with small hole (paper flaw) affecting a shoulder note, but a fine copy of a book almost never found like this, clean and crisp with ample margins in a binding with few signs of wear. Written as an obviously truculent repudiation, this book is a response to Gregory Martin's 1582 Rheims New Testament translation and "Discoverie of the Manifold Corruptions of the Holy Scriptures." It is one of several polemical treatises Fulke (1528-89) produced as spokesman against the Roman Catholic side during his active participation in the continuing religious controversy of the period. According to DNB, during the last decade of Fulke's life, "no year passed without the appearance of one or more books [by him] in defence of Protestantism, and in confutation of the church of Rome. His language was unmeasured, and even in that age, he was conspicuous for the virulence of his invective against his opponents. His learning was, however, extensive and sound, and he was an able master of controversy." The printer, Henry Bynneman (d. 1583) took up his trade as stationer in 1566, and prospered as printer and bookseller. His greatest work was the printing of Holinshed's "Chronicles" in 1577. The present book was printed in the last year of his life. This volume once resided in the fine library assembled by several generations of barons Harlech at their Shropshire estate, Brogyntyn. The inscription is likely in the hand of the fourth Lord Harlech, William George Arthur Ormsby-Gore (1885-1964), a bibliophile who served as president of the National Library of Wales in the 1950s. According to DNB, he "added many rare books" to the family collection. This is an uncommon work: just two other copies have appeared at auction since the 1980s, and virtually all copies are found in sad condition.

Apart from some occasional poems, this is Grotius's first published work. At the time he was studying at Leiden under Joseph Scaliger, who assisted him. In his preface Grotius discusses the difficulties of editing and the manuscripts he used. In his comments Grotius also cites several other authors, Apuleus, Strabo, Euclid, Vitruvius, Boethius, etc. to complement Capella's work.Without the two often lacking engraved portraits of the young Grotius and the Prince of Condé. Binding worn along the edges, the leather along the inner sides is partly detached from the boards and the hinges are cracked. Text browned and in near good condition.

Tracce di lacci; ex-libris ottocentesco "Nordkirchen" al risguardo anteriore. Seconda edizione (1a: 1580) del Lexicon greco curata dall’erudito tedesco Johannes Scapula. L’abbondanza di testo e di citazioni tratte dalla monumentale opera dell’Estienne, impressa pochi anni prima valse a quest’opera l’accusa di plagio. Certo è che il successo editoriale però fu tutto dalla parte di questa versione, ampia ma concisa e agile nella struttura consultativa, il che ne spiega le numerose reimpressioni per tutto il Cinquecento e Seicento. L’emblema al piatto anteriore della donna che spiega una vela (la Fortuna) ebbe principalmente uso in Italia, ciò non toglie che anche in botteghe del Nord Europa sia stato adoperato, come in questo caso. La manifattura potrebbe essere localizzata a Norimberga oppure nell’area fiamminga. CHAIX/DUFOUR/MOECKLI, Les livres imprimés à Genève de 1550 à 1600, Genève 1966, p. 108.

        Tiipus Orbis Terrarum

      Anversa 1583 - Magnifico esemplare di questa rara carta del mondo di Philippe Galle, realizzata per la prima edizione dello Spieghel del Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577. Questa carta del mondo è una fedele ed accurata riduzione della prima mappa del mondo di Ortelius del 1570, che era la tavola di apertura del suo celebre atlante Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Shirley, 122; Koeman, Ort 1; Karrow: 1/6, van der Krogt AN: 0001:31A). La lastra incisa da Philippe Galle, reca la data del 1574, sebbene la prima edizione dell'Epitome (secondo il titolo che diventerà comune nei secoli successivi), sia stata pubblicata nel 1577. Questa mappa verrà utilizzata per le sole edizioni dell'Epitome edite dal 1577 al 1585, e sarà poi sostituita da una lastra più piccola, a partire dal 1588. A differenza delle altre carte dell'Epitome, il mappamondo ha un formato più largo. La citazione latina nel margine inferiore, già presente nel modello di Ortelius, è da Cicerone (Tusculanae Disputatianes IV. 1 7. 37) "Quid ei potest videri magnum in rebus humanis, cui aeternitas omnis, totiusque mundi nota sit magnitudo" ovvero "Che cosa, tra le vicende umane, può sembrare grande a colui al quale è nota la grandezza del mondo e l'eternità dell'universo?". La carta del mondo di Ortelius, incisa e firmata da Franciscus Hogenberg, è di fondamentale importanza per la storia della cartografia in quanto costituisce la PRIMA MAPPA DEL MONDO a essere realizzata per un atlante di formato uniforme e non composito, quali gli atlanti del Lafrery. Le fonti cartografiche della carta sono il mappamondo di Mercator del 1569, quello di Gastaldi del 1561 e il portolando dell'Atlantico di Diego Gutierrez. La forma ovale rimanda, invece, ad Appiano e Bordone. Esemplare tratto dalla seconda edizione in lingua francese de Le Miroir du Monde. Le Miroir du Monde è l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa dello Spieghel der Werelt, il primo atlante tascabile pubblicato nel 1577, in lingua olandese, da Philip Galle, con testo in rima curato da Peeter Heyns, e stampato dalla tipografia Plantin. Lo Spieghel der Werelt era una versione ridotta del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Le lastre, quasi tutte derivate dal Theatrum, furono disegnate e incise da Philip Galle. Due anni dopo, nel 1579, fu data alle stampe l’edizione in lingua francese in prosa, perché Heyns non aveva avuto il tempo necessario per la resa in versi, col titolo Le Miroir du Monde. Il successo di questa edizione francese, è provato proprio dalla seconda edizione pubblicata a soli 4 anni di distanza, nel 1583. Complessivamente Galle pubblicò 5 edizioni in lingua francese, di cui solo le prime due con il titolo Le Miroir du Monde; a partire dal 1588, e così per le edizioni del 1590 e del 1598, il titolo dell’opera fu modificato in Epitome du thétre du Monde d’Abraham Ortelius, e il nome di Peeter Heyns non figurò più sul frontespizio. Rispetto alla prima edizione del 1579, che conteneva 72 mappe, la seconda edizione fu aumentata di 11 nuove mappe, per un totale di 83 tavole. Dal 1577 al 1598, Galle & Heyns pubblicarono ben 11 edizione, di cui l’ultima – edita nell’anno della morte di Ortelius – conteneva ben 123 mappe. Fine example of Philippe Galle's rare map of the World, engraved for the first edition of his Spieghel del Werelt, the first miniature edition of Ortelius' Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. This map is a neatly-engraved smaller copy of Ortelius' first world map plate, published in 1570, that is the first map of the Theatrum Orbis Terrrarum (Shirley, 122; Koeman, Ort 1; Karrow: 1/6, van der Krogt AN: 0001:31A). The Galle's plate is dated 1574 although the first printing of Galle's atlas did not taken place until 1577. The motto below the map is a quotation from Cicero (Tusculanae Disputatianes IV. 1 7. 37) Quid ei potest videri magnum in rebus humanis, cui aeternitas omnis, totiusque mundi nota sit magnitudo (For what human affairs can seem important to a man who keeps all eternity before his eyes and knows th [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        De plantis libri XVI

      Florence: Georgium Marescottum, 1583. FIRST EDITION. Woodcut printer's device on title and on the colophon, woodcut initials. Full calf, gilt decorations in an antique style, morocco spine label, spine label; minor waterstain to index leaves. Faint contemporary ownership signature at foot of title page. An excellent copy. First edition of the first "rational system of plant classification" (PMM). Cesalpino's work became the foundation of scientific botany and the first articulation of the modern concept of species. With the knowledge of the existence of a greater number of plants, a method of scientific classification was needed. This era began with Cesalpino, who created his system of classification based upon plant morphology. "He insisted that distinctions among species should be made only according to similarity or dissimilarity of forms, and that 'accidental' attributes, such as medicinal use and habitat, must not be considered; in doing so, he elevated botany to the level of an independent science" (Norman). The first section of this ground-breaking work contains the general system of comparative study, retaining the traditional divisions of trees, shrubs, half-shrubs and herbs, but further sub-dividing them into different categories according to their seed, fruit and flower. The remaining sections describe over fifteen hundred plants, placing them into fifteen classes. Cesalpino focuses on the roots, stems and fruit as the basis for his classification. It is in this taxonomy that the De plantis most decidedly marks an epoch in the history of botany. The effect of this work was enormous, profoundly influencing botanists that followed, including Linnaeus in his famous works on classification, his Systema naturae of 1735 and his Classes plantarum in 1738. Indeed, Linnaeus' own fully annotated copy of De plantis now resides in the library of the Linnean Society. Cesalpino (1519-1603) was born at Arezzo in Tuscany and studied under Ghini at Pisa, where he graduated in medicine, and thereafter succeeded Aldrovandi as director of the garden at Bologna, in 1555 becoming professor of botany. He later became a professor in Rome and physician to Pope Clement VIII.

        1583 Hadrianus Junius Polyglot Dictionary Lexicon Dutch Latin Byzantine Plantin

      Antverpiae : ex officina Christophori Plantini, M. D. LXXXIII, [1583]. - 1583 Hadrianus Junius Polyglot Dictionary Lexicon Dutch Latin Byzantine Plantin "An important multilingual dictionary offering many subjects in German, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, and sometimes English.” – Adams (J, 450). Hadrianus Junius (1511-1575) was devoted to linguistics, lexicography, and philological work. He is most-remembered now for his emblematica, but in creating his ‘Emblems,’ he also wrote this dictionary. He scoured through existing encyclopedias and other lexicons to write his own. He was greatly influenced by Byzantine writing, and his successful research was noted as accurate by his contemporaries. The vast majority of Junius’s works were published by either Plantin or Froben, two very well-known and respected 16th-century publishers. Christopher Plantin, the publisher of this work, published only 2,500 copies of this edition – a reissue of the 1577.

        An astrological discourse upon the great and notable coniunction of the two superiour planets, Saturne & Iupiter, which shall happen the 28. day of April, 1583. : With a briefe declaration of the effects, which the late eclipse of the sunne 1582 is yet hereafter to worke.

      Henrie Bynneman,, London 1583 - 12mo, 82 pp. Handwritten title page. 2 pp letter from the author bound into the rear of the book. Closely trimmed with title ("An Astrologiacl Discourse") above every page often partially or wholly cut. Comparison of the signature on the letter and the way Harvey's name is written on the title page lead me to believe the title page was written by Richard Harvey. The letter is signed "Your loving brother." so this copy was probably owned by his brother John, also an astrologer. There was one other brother, Gabriel. pp 1 and 2 have a small chip on the side with slight loss of text. This chip has ben professionally stabilized. Red leather spine and corners over marbled paper covered boards. Probably contemporary. Front lower corner rubbed and chipped. Other light rubbing to spine and corners Title and date in gilt on the spine. ffep and front pastedown sheet with old bookplates. ffep held only by a cord. Good + From Lilly's "Astrology and the Seventeenth Century Mind" : "The dogfight which ensued over these prophecies centered on the three Harvey brothers, whose pamphlets and commentaries fanned the flames of dread, and the satirist cartoonist Thomas Nashe, who did his best to derail the soothsayers. The work which kicked off the controversy among English astrologers was Richard Harvey's An astrological Discourse Upon the Great and Notable Coniunction of the Tvvo Superiour Planets, Saturne & Iupiter, which shall happen the 28. day of April, 1583. Despite according them scant acknowledgement, Harvey paraphrased and reiterated Leowitz's analysis and predictions, dedicating his work to John Aylmer, Bishop of London, who he claimed had examined the work. Bishop Aylmer, however, may have proved ungrateful since he was reported by Nashe to have preached at Paul's Cross against this pamphlet and its prophecies. Richard Harvey made and explicit association between the the 1583 conjunction and the death of a king - a connection rendered even less advisable after a 1581 statute had made it a felony to cast a ruler's nativity. Like Lilly, he also advised that an astrologer forseeing the death of a prince should keep silent, taking the astrologers Cardan and Gauric to task for openly predicting royal deaths" Rare and important.

        Sette libri di satire di Ludovico Ariosto, Hercole Bentivogli, Luigi Alemanni, Pietro Nelli, Antonino Vinciguerra, Francesco Sansovino, ed altri scrittori.

      Venice: Appresso Fabio, & Agostin Zopini fratelli, 1583. 8vo (14.6 cm, 5.75"). [8], 206, [1] ff. (lacking original final blank). Later edition of collected satires by famous Italian authors, edited by one of them, Francesco Sansovino (1521–86).    Sansovino dedicates this collection to the historian Camillo Portio (Porzio, 1526 – ca. 1580), and introduces it with an essay on the material of satire, which he breaks down as "pure simplicity, with severe acerbity, sometimes mixed with a bit of salt, or with some feature [that is] tasty, and acute." Prior to this, Sansovino also worked on the satires of Ariosto (1474–1533), separately published.    The text is divided into sections by author, each of whom the editor introduces with a brief biography. A short abstract printed in roman precedes each poem, printed in italic. Fine woodcut head- and tailpieces, and a variety of initials in historiated, patterned, and factotum designs, decorate the text; and the title-page features the woodcut printers' device of Truth personified, flanked by an eagle, a lion, a bull, and an angel, representing the Four Evangelists.    Provenance: Ownership inscription on front fly-leaf of Luigi Pagani Cesa, possibly the Italian jurist born at Belluno in 1855, who served as a member of Parliament for 1904–13; and the words "penso che" ("I think that . . .") written above, in an earlier hand?         Adams A1691; CNCE 2806. Later glazed cream-colored boards, title and date inked on upper spine, small paper label on lower spine, marbled red edges; boards soiled and front joint opening. One spot of worming on front pastedown and on colophon leaf; traces of former mounting on colophon leaf verso. Title-page with one letter added in manuscript (o, in Bentivoglio). Trimmed close at margins almost grazing headline on a few leaves. Very minor stains on a few leaves, generally bright and crisp.

The first book of this text is of outstanding historical importance. Here, in thirty pages of admirably clear Latin, Cesalpino presented the principles of botany, grouping a wealth of careful observations under broad categories, on the model of Aristotle and Theophrastus. "Caesalpinus's philosophy is Aristotelian: plants have a vegetable soul which is responsible for nutrition and for the reproduction of organisms. Nutrition was believed to come from the roots in the soil and to be carried up the stems to produce the fruit. Hence, the roots, stems and fruit are the main characteristics selected by Caesalpinus as the basis for his classification" (PMM).Cesalpino was the first to elaborate a system of the plants based on a unified and coherent group of notions. By paying little attention to the medicinal uses of plants he raised botany to the level of an independent science.RARE: according to American Book Prices Current, only one other copy has sold in the last 30 years: the Norman copy, Christie's New York, 18 March 1998, lot 62. A copy brought up for auction at Zisska & Schauer in 2012 was withdrawn as being part of the Girolamini library theft. Very Good....

Listen to Brunet II, 1076, on this subject: 'This book was spicy published in Geneva in 1578, and not Paris, as has been said many bibliographers. The author has provided his immense erudition, but at the same time has allowed some jokes are a bit bold, which won him a green semonse Council Geneva, following which he thought it prudent to leave ... There are two other Antwerp, 1579 and 1583, in 16, which are scarcely less rare than the first, and the price is quite high. ' Full Calf nineteenth environment. Back to nerves decorated in the style of a seventeenth binding. Friction. Lack the right of the sheet 97 with loss of some letters in the last word bottom corner. Dialogues satirical, mocking the courtship behavior, modes of dress and languages (fashion speak Italian French words for example, or the conventions of language on securities).
