Romana, Celia (fl. 1562), pseudonym?
Venice: 1584. Venice: Iacomo Cornetti, 1584. FIFTH EDITION (1st 1562). Octavo: An untrimmed copy in later paper boards. Very light browning to final leaves. Printer's device on title page. The "Love letters written by Lady Celia, Roman gentlewoman, to her lover", constitutes one of the earliest collections of Renaissance Italian women's letters, one of the few collections addressed entirely to one recipient, and possibly "the most popular woman's letter book of the Renaissance."(Kaborycha) Nothing is known of Celia Romana outside of her work and some attribute these lettere to a male author, possibly Girolamo Parabosco, who authored an earlier collection of letters by fictitious women. Yet there is nothing to disprove that these passionate epistles were written by a woman under the pseudonym of Celia to protect her reputation. A note at c. 4v informs us about a second pseudonym adopted in the course of the correspondence: Zima (possibly a borrowing from one of Boccaccio's stories in the Decameron). The book is dedicated to another pious woman, Lisa, who is presented as a friend of Celia's lover, the real force behind the publication. Each letter narrates the struggle of love, the secret meetings, petty jealousies and excruciating waits."There are sixty-eight letters, among 'thousands written to (her lover) over the course of twelve years,' which the editor dedicates to a certain 'Magnificent and Illustrious Signora Lisa.' Each letter is dated and signed, the author sometimes signing herself as Celia and sometimes Zima, addressing her lover as Toso. The richness of detail c … [Click Below for Full Description]

OVID (Ovidius Naso, Publius). 43 B.C.E.-17
Venice: Bernardo Giunta, 1584. Flush-cut in contemporary binder's boards long-stitched through the spine (foxed), manuscript title on the front. MODEL BOOK FOR ARTISTS AND ARTISANS. This separately issued suite appeared the same year as the first illustrated edition of G.A. dell' Anguillara's Italian translation of Ovid's tales of transformation (for which these plates were commissioned).  Painterly, innovative and influential, Giacomo Franco depicts four to fourteen carefully labeled scenes on each plate, using highly ornamental outer borders to suggest tapestry. His imagery served for book illustration throughout the 17th-century in Italy, France and the Low Countries. Each cut has its own lively integral Mannerist frame, decorated with scrollwork, masks, bucrania, swags, helmets, flaming urns, hags, putti, flora, beasts: each a potential pattern to be traced or pounced for jewelry, furniture, brasses, tableware and textiles.  These are among Franco's earliest works. Within a decade he turned to the more lucrative activity of publishing. In this example, the plates are bound in the following order: title, 14, 9, 8, 4, [1], 13, 3, 15, 10, 2, 6, 7, 12, 5, 11. I have located one copy in American collections (Indiana). In good condition (scattered foxing). ¶Camerini, Annali dei Giunti Venezia II: 471-2,28 "The fifteen plates were also issued separately to form a suite" (tr.); Mortimer, Italian 343n.  For the printed book: Pasero, "Giacomo Franco, editore, incisore, calcografo nei secoli XVI e XVII" in Bibliofilia 37 (1935) 338-39,V; The Age of Titian: Vene … [Click Below for Full Description]

MERCATOR, Gerard.
1584. Amsterdam: Jodocus Hondius Jnr, 1618. Coloured. 350 x 490mm, with wide margins. A beautiful map of the world according to Claudius Ptolemy of Alexandria, showing the world as known to the ancients, with the semi-mythical island of Taprobana but no America or Cape of Good Hope. However Mercator has dropped the land-locked Indian Ocean shown on earlier Ptolemaic maps. The map was engraved by Mercator himself for his 1578 edition of Ptolemy's 'Geography'; however this example comes from an edition of Petrus Bertius's 'Theatrum geographiae veteris'. The flamboyance of the strapwork-and-windhead borders makes this map the most decorative of the Ptolemaic world maps. SHIRLEY: World 139, plate 118, 'His general Ptolemaic map is one of the finest available. elegantly engraved'.

LUQMAN al-Hakim (notes by Thomas ERPENIUS).
60, [2] pp.Second edition, in the original Arabic with a Latin translation and notes by Thomas Erpenius (1584-1624), of the classic fables by Luqman (Lokman). Luqman "the greatest figure in the whole corpus of pre-Islamic myth and legend" (Cambridge history of Arabic literature, p. 378) is to Arabic what Aesop is to Greek, a real but much mythologized figure, said to have gathered his wisdom from observation of (and by some accounts conversation with) animals. Surat 31 of the Quran is named after him. Luqman's animal fables became an important part of pre-Islamic Arabic culture, were incorporated into early Islamic culture and remain popular today in both Western and Islamic culture. The fables are first given in Arabic, followed by a translation in Latin and Erpenius's notes. Erpenius, appointed professor of Arabic at Leiden University in 1613, set up a printing office for Arabic and other "oriental" languages and had Arabic type cut under his supervision by Arent Corsz. Hogenacker. He printed the first edition of Luqman's fables as his first trial publication, still without vowel points for the Arabic type. He annotated his own copy of the first edition extensively, and these revisions were incorporated into the present second edition, printed with vowel points. The present edition uses a new Arabic type, also by Hogenacker. The larger Arabic type (a single line on the title-page) was also new and this is almost its only use in the Netherlands. Some manuscript notes on the title-page and later owner's pencil notes in Arabic in margins and on final flyleaf. Lower outer cor … [Click Below for Full Description]

HIRMOLOGION
[Venice: G. Leoncini with] Andrea Kunadis' Greek types, 1584. CONTEMPORARY ALLA GRECA BINDING OF BLIND-DECORATED CALF OVER WOODEN BOARDS, outer rule frames, central rectangle of a foliage roll, Christogram in the center (slight loss to both panels), the same roll repeated on the flat spine, a pair of metal catchpins and catches, book block edges flush cut. Apparently the ?second printing of the Eastern Orthodox hymnal: "one of the two most important poetic forms in medieval Byzantine religious poetry...chanters would use them [hirmologia] to learn the basic melodies" in the liturgy (New Grove2). Created in the 9th century to be sung by the whole congregation, the Hirmologion provides the first stanza (hirmos) of each of the roughly one thousand odes that make up the kanones. The congregants sing the remaining verses and their melodies from memory.  In the early 1520s Kunadis issued a series of Greek service books. With those same types and blocks, Giacomo Leoncini produced liturgical books in 1584-85 for export to Constantinople. Some few copies, such as that offered here, were bound up for sale to the indigenous Greek community scattered across the Veneto. I have identified three other examples (two in Venice; the one at Harvard is in an identical binding; my thanks to the Houghton staff for their kind assistance). Not in EDIT16. In good condition (minor worming to the final three lower corners, neatly repaired, loss of five sorts). ¶New Grove2 11: 332-5; La Stampa greca a Venezia nei secoli XV e XVI.

MERCATOR, Gerard
Cologne, 1584. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Sheet measures 19 5/8" x 15 3/4". Scarce. This ancient map of the British Isles issued by Gerard Mercator was published in the 1584 edition of Tablae Geographicae. This Ptolemaic map includes the present-day United Kingdom, Ireland, and shows parts of France and Germany. First issued by Mercator in his 1578 edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia", the map includes an ornate title cartouche and an interesting sea monster that appears to be a cross between a bird and a fish. In 1584, this later edition was published, indicated by the letter B on the verso. The map notes important towns and cities, labeled with names and symbols. Islands and rivers are also labeled. A expanse of forest in Scotland is depicted pictorially, and an illustration of a fishing operation is seen off the coast of France and Germany. In good condition with minor wear and toning to margins, image unaffected. Gerard Mercator (1512-1594) was an accomplished mathematician, cartographer, globe maker and engraver but is best known for the Mercator Projection. Incorporating the newly accepted fact that the world is round, Mercator was able to render longitude lines consistently straight on a chart. Although this requires some distortion, it was of great use for navigators, and is historically important, as it is still the most commonly used projection today.

ASTLEY, John.
The art of riding, set foorth in a breefe treatise, with a due interpretation out of certeine places alledged out of Xenophon, and Gryson ...London, Henry Denham, 1584. 4to. Gold-tooled red morocco (ca. 1890) by Riviere & son; rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down. [8], 79, [1] pp. Rare first (and only early) edition of one of the earliest English treatises on horsemanship, by John Astley (ca. 1507-1596), derived in part from Xenophon, Federico Grisone and other authors, and in part from Astley's own experience. Though sometimes described as an English translation of Xenophon's treatise (in English called On horsemanship), Astley's own contributions make it more than that. While nearly all early works on horsemanship seem harsh today and some even sadistic, Astley (like Xenophon) favoured persuasion over brutality. With the first three leaves somewhat browned and their upper outside corners skilfully and unobtrusively restored, slightly affecting the corner of one headpiece and a few letters of the text, and a tear in the fourth leaf restored without loss, but otherwise in good condition, with only an occasional minor blemish. A rare classic of horsemanship deserving pride of place in any collection on the subject. Dejager, Great books on horsemanship (2014), 38; Huth, p. 11; Podeschi 12; STC 884 (8 complete & 2 incomplete copies).

The first two books are respectively devoted to geometry relative to architecture and perspective. Book III deals with antiquities, book IV on the history of architecture and book V on churches. Book VI was never printed out is appended here as an Extraordinary Book (Libro estraordinario) which appeared for the first time in 1551 and which constitutes a collection of models of 50 doors, 30 "rustic" and 20 " delicate". Despite, lacking one text leaf, a scarce book on the market, "Serlio was the first to publish a book on architecture in which the illustrations assumed primary importance."

Small 4to (18.5 x 14.5 cm). With an arabesque decoration on title-page (plus 1 repeat as a tailpiece) and a woodcut gothic decorated initial. Sewn. [12] ll. One of four rare editions (all printed in the same year) of a pamphlet on the capitulation of Bonn in January 1584, during the Cologne War (1583-1589). Bonn was the capital city of the Archbishop-Prince Elector of Cologne, Gebhard, Truchsess of Waldburg, who in 1582 had converted to Calvinism. When he refused to relinquish the Electorate the remaining Catholics elected another archbishop, Ernst of Bavaria, of the House of Wittelsbach. This conflict soon escalated in an all-out war. Bonn was governed by Karl von Waldburg (1548-1593), who was appointed stadtholder in 1583 by his brother Gebhard.The sewing has come loose between the quires, but otherwise in very good condition, with only a small chip at the head of the title-page.

THOU (THUANUS), Jacques-Auguste de.
Hieracosophioy, sive de re accipitraria libri tres.Paris, Mamert Patisson, Kings Printer "in officina Robert Estienne", 1584. Small 4to (22 x 15 cm). With the late Robert I Estienne's large woodcut device on the title-page. With the poem and Thou's 11-page verse letter to Philippe Huralt in italic type and the preliminaries and some end matter in roman. Half parchment (ca. 1892). [4], 95, [13] pp. First complete edition, in the original Latin, of one of the most famous and longest of De Thou's poems, a didactic verse in about 2780 hexameters devoted to hunting with falcons and other birds of prey, composed in three "libri" and addressed to François, Duke of Alençon, Anjou and Brabant (1555-1584), the youngest son of the late King Henri II and Catherine de' Medici, and brother of the reigning King Henri III. It is the first major Latin work on the subject of falconry. Book 1 discusses the various kinds of birds of prey used in falconry and how to choose one, book 2 discusses their care and feeding, training and the practice of hunting with them, and book 3 discusses their medical care. De Thou (1553-1617), not yet thirty when he first published the present poem, is now considered "the most important historian of the French Renaissance". The poem ends on p. 95, with the next page containing an "important" (Harting) note about the various kinds of birds of prey used for falconry and giving their French and Latin names. The last six leaves contain Thou's 11-page letter to Philippe Huralt (1528-1599), French chancellor under King Henri III, on the subject of falconry, and on the … [Click Below for Full Description]

With a woodcut of the Ship of Fools on the title-page, woodcut Dutch title-panel, Van Ghelen's large woodcut greyhounds and goat device on the last page, 118 full-page and 2 smaller woodcut illustrations in text, each page (after the title and its verso) in a border built up from arabesque cast fleurons. 18th-century sprinkled calf, gold-tooled spine and board edges, mottled edges. [2], "234" [= 236], [10] pp. Rare first edition of Jan II van Ghelen's Dutch translation of Sebastian Brant's famous Ship of fools, a telling satire on the foolishness of men. The book really is a picture book, each act of folly depicted in a large woodcut in which the fool with cap and bells plays the main role, the text explaining the woodcut and its moral. It first appeared in German in 1494, in Latin in 1497, and went through hundreds of editions in many languages, as well as spin-offs of various kinds, including a song by The Grateful Dead in 1974. A Dutch translation appeared in Paris in 1500 and a few more in the following decades, including one at Antwerp in 1548, but the present edition was far more influential and was long even cited as the first.Sebastian Brandt (1457-1521) is famous largely for this verse satire, in which more than a hundred fools set sail in search of a fool's paradise. Each humourously satirizes one particular vice or folly of Brant's day, sparing neither clergy nor scholars, and each fool meets his death in an appropriate manner.

Romana, Celia (fl. 1562), pseudonym?
Venice: Iacomo Cornetti, 1584. FIFTH EDITION (1st 1562). Octavo: An untrimmed copy in later paper boards. Very light browning to final leaves. Printer's device on title page. The "Love letters written by Lady Celia, Roman gentlewoman, to her lover", constitutes one of the earliest collections of Renaissance Italian women's letters, one of the few collections addressed entirely to one recipient, and possibly "the most popular woman's letter book of the Renaissance."(Kaborycha) Nothing is known of Celia Romana outside of her work and some attribute these lettere to a male author, possibly Girolamo Parabosco, who authored an earlier collection of letters by fictitious women. Yet there is nothing to disprove that these passionate epistles were written by a woman under the pseudonym of Celia to protect her reputation. A note at c. 4v informs us about a second pseudonym adopted in the course of the correspondence: Zima (possibly a borrowing from one of Boccaccio's stories in the Decameron). The book is dedicated to another pious woman, Lisa, who is presented as a friend of Celia's lover, the real force behind the publication. Each letter narrates the struggle of love, the secret meetings, petty jealousies and excruciating waits."There are sixty-eight letters, among 'thousands written to (her lover) over the course of twelve years,' which the editor dedicates to a certain 'Magnificent and Illustrious Signora Lisa.' Each letter is dated and signed, the author sometimes signing herself as Celia and sometimes Zima, addressing her lover as Toso.

In 1579 he moved to the Low Countries where he became the first professor of law at the newly erected Leiden university. This didn't last either and in 1587 he moved back to Germany, where he was appointed professor in Altdorf.The title-page has the authors presentation inscription to the Reformed minister Matthieu de Lannoy, who left Heidelberg University together with Donellus.

OVID (Ovidius Naso, Publius). 43 B.C.E.-17
Venice: Bernardo Giunta, 1584. Flush-cut in contemporary binder's boards long-stitched through the spine (foxed), manuscript title on the front. MODEL BOOK FOR ARTISTS AND ARTISANS. This separately issued suite appeared the same year as the first illustrated edition of G.A. dell' Anguillara's Italian translation of Ovid's tales of transformation (for which these plates were commissioned).  Painterly, innovative and influential, Giacomo Franco depicts four to fourteen carefully labeled scenes on each plate, using highly ornamental outer borders to suggest tapestry. His imagery served for book illustration throughout the 17th-century in Italy, France and the Low Countries. Each cut has its own lively integral Mannerist frame, decorated with scrollwork, masks, bucrania, swags, helmets, flaming urns, hags, putti, flora, beasts: each a potential pattern to be traced or pounced for jewelry, furniture, brasses, tableware and textiles.  These are among Franco's earliest works. Within a decade he turned to the more lucrative activity of publishing. In this example, the plates are bound in the following order: title, 14, 9, 8, 4, [1], 13, 3, 15, 10, 2, 6, 7, 12, 5, 11. I have located one copy in American collections (Indiana).

HIRMOLOGION
[Venice: G. Leoncini with] Andrea Kunadis' Greek types, 1584. CONTEMPORARY ALLA GRECA BINDING OF BLIND-DECORATED CALF OVER WOODEN BOARDS, outer rule frames, central rectangle of a foliage roll, Christogram in the center (slight loss to both panels), the same roll repeated on the flat spine, a pair of metal catchpins and catches, book block edges flush cut. Apparently the ?second printing of the Eastern Orthodox hymnal: "one of the two most important poetic forms in medieval Byzantine religious poetry...chanters would use them [hirmologia] to learn the basic melodies" in the liturgy (New Grove2). Created in the 9th century to be sung by the whole congregation, the Hirmologion provides the first stanza (hirmos) of each of the roughly one thousand odes that make up the kanones. The congregants sing the remaining verses and their melodies from memory.  In the early 1520s Kunadis issued a series of Greek service books. With those same types and blocks, Giacomo Leoncini produced liturgical books in 1584-85 for export to Constantinople. Some few copies, such as that offered here, were bound up for sale to the indigenous Greek community scattered across the Veneto. I have identified three other examples (two in Venice; the one at Harvard is in an identical binding; my thanks to the Houghton staff for their kind assistance). Not in EDIT16.

WOMEN. DRESS. FOOD AND DRINK. CONDUCT.
Bologna:, 1584. FIRST EDITION.. Quarto:. Bound in modern wrappers. A very fine, crisp copy with broad margins and numerous deckles preserved. Woodcut arms on title. First edition of this revision of sumptuary laws regulating dress, dowry and feasts promulgated by Cardinal Gabriele Paleotti in 1568 and revised several times until the end of the century. The dress code of women attracts particular attention, skirts are meant to be neither too long, nor too short; jewelry is to be worn in moderation. A single-strand pearl necklace is acceptable, unless it is too long - and variations apply depending on whether a woman is married or not. Special exceptions are made for weddings, but even then the social order needs to be upheld, and women have to be dressed according to rank and status. Contravention of the detailed rules leads to fines, which increase for repeat offenders at nuptial feasts, at banquets for public and private parties, and indeed at any meal of meat no more than one course of roast and one of boiled meat may be provided. Banned from all banquets shall be trout from any place whatsoever, sturgeon, fish from the lake, pasties, confections and all other things made of sugar. Oysters may be served only at private meals for twenty persons or less, and not at larger banquets or feasts; collations must be provided in the rooms, on the tables, and not otherwise, they must consist of modest confections, of the ordinary products of pastry cooks, and of simple fruits of any kind, according to the time of the year (cf.

Printer's device on title page and author's full-page engraved emblem on l. C2v. Italic type. Woodcut headpieces and initials. Contemporary limp vellum, ink title on the spine, original endpapers preserved. On the front pastedown bookplate of Libreria Pregliasco and of Rabbi Ariel Toff, on the front flyleaf verso the manuscript pressmark "T 1807". Some mild browning, but a genuine, wide-margined copy on strong paper. FIRST EDITION (first issue, there exists a variant B with an additional bifolium Dd at the end containing a variant of the original errata on leaf A4r). The De Auro dialogi tres was written at the request of Guglielmo Gonzaga and is dedicated by Portaleone to the latter. The dialogue, whose interlocutors are Dynachrysus, the alter ego of Portaleone, and Achryuasmus, its counterpart, tries to answer the question whether gold has curative virtues or not. Portaleone doesn't keep us in suspense for very long, and gives almost immediately his point of view, which is totally negative: metals do have some power, but gold doesn't have more than the others. The false assumption of its special power is due to its beauty, its resistance, its social prestige. Many important medical authorities of the past have been misled by some features which have nothing to do with medicine: this grave misconception was caused by the absence of an experimental mentality. The discussion extends to … [Click Below for Full Description]

A few spots in the blank, inner margin of the first plate, far from the image. Else very fine. The publishing history: According to Thomas Ashby’s classification of the editions, the first edition of Cavalieri’s book of statues appeared before April 1561. That edition, the “Liber Primus” consisted of only 58 plates, all of which were from original drawings, except for the plates of Pasquino and Marforio, which were copied from Lafrery’s “Speculum”. A second edition appeared in 1561-1562, consisting of an engraved title and only 52 plates. In 1570 the Venetian printer Girolamo Porro made copies of the original plates for his own edition, which he republished in 1576. Prior to 1584 –and possibly as early as 1574 (the title page is undated)- Cavalieri produced this new edition, comprising two books rather than one, with a total of 100 plates (52 plates in the first book and 48 new plates in the second.) For this edition, the title page was re-cut and the first 25 plates were re-engraved. A second edition with these same 100 plates followed in 1585. The editions of (?)1584 and 1585 may be called the definitive editions of these plates. In the edition of 1593 that followed, the first hundred plates were poorly re-engraved and another 100, which brought the … [Click Below for Full Description]

TERTULLIAN
Parisiis: Michaelem Sonnium, 1584. 1584 1ed Tertullian Early Church Father Pagan Heresy anti Jewish Pamelius FOLIO"Truth persuades by teaching but does not teach by persuading." ― TertullianTertullian was a 2nd-century early Christian church author and apologist. His works helped establish Western theology and early Church doctrine, especially those that spoke out against heresy. He is perhaps most famous for being the first Latin writer to use the term 'trinity' in reference to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.Tertullian emphatically defended Christianity against pagans as well as defended 'freedom of religion' as human right unable to be taken away. One of his important apologetics was an anti-Jewish treatise to counteract Gnosticism and other philosophically based doctrines.These defenses, along with other Tertullian works, are collected in this 1584 Latin first edition, edited by Jacobus Pamelius. According to the USTC, there are no other examples in any institution or library in the entire Western Hemisphere! Extremely rare!Item number: #9872Price: $1095TERTULLIANQ.

SMITH, Thomas
London: Henrie Midleton for Gregorie Seton anno Domini, 1584. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Thomas Smith was a 16th-century English diplomat who is best remembered for his failed attempt to colonize parts of Ireland with English settlers. However, prior to his colonization attempts, Smith wrote his most famous book 'De Republica Anglorum'. It was with this book that Smith described England's government style as a commonwealth. This work has become a staple in the study of the English constitution.
