      Frankfurt (Francofurti), Apud haeredes Andreae Wecheli, 1584. - 8vo. LXXII,592,(88) p. Pigskin 18 cm (Ref: VD16 H2515. Hoffmann 2,236)(The 16th century binding of this book is important in the context of the cultural history of Lutheranism. The center panel of the frontcover shows a portrait of Johann Friedrich I, the Magnanimous, Elector of Saxony, 1503-1554, in full armour, with 3 lines of text: 'Victus eras acie, fidei con / stantia tandem victorem / ante homines fecit et ante deum'; on the backcover the blindstamped coat of arms of Johann Friedrich, who became after his death a kind of protestant Saint. He still is, for the 3rd of March, the day he died, is still commemorated in the evangelical church of Germany. Because this portrait also figures on a book held in the Penn Libraries, where it is described as 'Elector of Saxony, possibly August I, 1526-1586' (Cicero, Philosophical works, 1565, Call no: LatC C4855.10 1565), we will provide some details. Johann Friedrich I was an ardent follower of Martin Luther, he was a lifelong promotor of the reformatory movement and one of the movement's most important political leaders. Johann Friedrich was defeated and taken prisoner on the 24th of april 1547 by troops of the emperor Charles V in the neighbourhood of Mühlberg, 'mannhaft fechtend, am Backen verwundet' (fighting bravely, wounded on the cheek). He had to abdicate, but he refused to be converted to Catholicism. In captivity his political role came to an end, but in prison he became a protestant Saint. The duke was released in 1552, and his way home was a real triumph. In 1551 Matthes Gebel made a medal with the portrait of a bearded duke, with a scar on his left cheek. There is also an engraved portrait with a scar made in 1547, the year of the battle of Mühlberg. This scar on the left cheek, which is apparantly part of the iconography of the Duke, is clearly visible in the blindstamped portrait on the front of this book. So this must be a portrait of Johann Friedrich I) (Condition: Cover soiled and worn at the extremities; some damage to the head and tail of the back, and to the frontcover; corners heavily bumped; 2 old ownership entries on the title; small inscription on the front pastedown; small inscription on the verso of the title; occasional old red ink underlinings; some marginalia in the Apologia) (The provenance of this copy is Saxonian and Lutheran. 1: An old inscription on the flyleaf: 'Tout avec Dieu. Pour temoigner ma tres bonne amitie et affection, que je porte a Monsr. Jean Trölschen, je luy ay donne ceste livre priant de le prandre a bon gre, et deme(u)rant jusque au tombeau, Son bien humble et bien affectione serviteur M. Jean Ernst Gerard Jenensis'. There are two Lutheran theologians bearing the name 'Johannes Ernst Gerhard', father (1621-1668) and son (1662-1707). Both were born and educated in Jena. (ADB 8,772) Who 'Jean Trölschen' was, we do not know. 2: On the title in old ink 'Ex libris M. Johann Rolle . Vicar'. 3: Below the imprint an old ink inscription: 'Sum ex libris Christoph. Richteri Altenburg', continued with a verse from the New Testament in Greek, Ep. ad Ephesios 3,20. Christoph Richter, 'Altenburger Baumeister', was the architect of the Lutheran 'Gottsackerkirche zur Auferstehung Christi' in Altenburg (1639/50) 4: Old ink inscription on the verso of the title: 'Hunc librum dono accepi a Dn. N. (Joh. erased) Christ. Ungewittero, ut monumentum aeternae suae benevolentiae, J.W. Riedesel'. This might be the Hessian protestant theologian Christoph Ungewitter, 1681-1756, who was 'Hofprediger' of the 'Landgraf' of Kassel. (ADB 39/303) The receiver of the book may be the diplomat 'Johann Wilhelm Freiherr von Riedesel zu Eisenbach', 1705-1782 (NDB 21,570-72) 5: On the flyleaves 2 pencil notes by the Flemish linguist Walter Couvreur, 1914-96)(Collation: alpha-delta8, eta4; a-z8, A-T8, V4) This book is a reissue of the Latin translation of Herodotus' 'Historiae', made by Lorenzo Valla, published by Henri Estienne (Stephanus) in Geneva in 1566.

      Frankfurt (Francofurti), Apud haeredes Andreae Wecheli, 1584.. 8vo. LXXII,592,(88) p. Pigskin 18.5 cm (Ref: VD16 H 2515. Weitere Nummern: VD16 C 6157, VD16 E 4005, VD16 H 2533; Hoffmann 2,236) (Details: The binding of this book is important in the context of the cultural history of Lutheranism. The binding dates from the last 2 decades of the 16th century. The back has 4 raised bands; the boards are decorated with blind stamped triple fillet borders and a row consisting of floral motives and some tiny portraits; the center panel of the frontcover shows a fine example of a well preserved portrait of Johann Friedrich I, the Magnanimous (der Grossmüthige), Elector of Saxony (Kurfürst und Herzog von Sachsen), 1503-1554, in full armour, with 3 lines of text at the bottom: 'Victus eras acie, fidei con / stantia tandem victorem / ante homines fecit et ante deum'; on the backcover the blindstamped impressive and also well preserved coat of arms of this Elector of Saxony, who became after his death a kind of protestant Saint. He still is, for the 3rd of March, the day he died, is still commemorated in the evangelical church of Germany. Because the portrait of this nobleman also figures on a book held in the Penn Libraries, where it is described as 'Elector of Saxony, possibly August I, 1526-1586', we will investigate this in some detail. (See http://dla.library.upenn.edu/dla/franklin/record.html?id=FRANKLIN_4966796). Johann Friedrich I was an ardent follower of Martin Luther, with whom he corresponded. He was a lifelong promotor of the reformatory movement, and one of the movement's most important political leaders. Johann Friedrich was defeated and taken prisoner (victus acie) on the 24th of april 1547 by troops of the emperor Charles V in the neighbourhood of Mühlberg (battle of Mühlberg), 'mannhaft fechtend, am Backen verwundet'. (On this wound on the cheek and the resulting scar, see below) On the 10th of May he was sentenced to death. 'Eben mit seinem Schicksalgefährten Herzog Ernst von Grubenhagen, beim Schachspiel sitzend, hörte J.Fr. wie erzählt wird (...) das Urtheil mit grossem Gleichmuth an; 'Pergamus' wandte er sich zu seinem erschrockenen Mitspieler'. This sentence was not carried out. Johann Friedrich had however to abdicate, but he refused to be converted to Catholicism. In captivity his political role came to an end, but in prison he became a protestant Saint. 'Mit diesem jähen Sturzen, war Johann Friedrichs politische Rolle zu Ende. Nicht aber seine politische Bedeutung für das evangelische Deutschland. Die heitere Ruhe mit dem er sein Unglück hinnahm, die Unerschütterlichkeit seiner religiösen Überzeugung (...) machten ihn zum leuchtende Vorbilde seiner Glaubensgenossen (...)'. Charles V tried to force him to accept catholicism, he humiliated him, but 'Alles, erklärte er (J.Fr.), habe er bisher hintangesetzt, um das Wort Gottes lauter und rein zu erhalten. Obwohl er bereits Alles verloren und ein armer Gefangener geworden, solle ihn doch Gott davor behüten, dass er nun zu letzt noch davon abweichen, die erkannte Wahrheit verleugnen, und das Papstthum annehmen solle'. The duke was released in 1552, and his way home was a real triumph. 'Die Heimkehr des fürstlichen Martyrers über Nürnberg und Bamberg glich einem Triumphzuge; wohin er kam, strömte das Volk ihm entgegen. (...) Zu Jena empfingen ihn Professoren und Studenten der neubegründeten Universität'. (...) Melanchthon wrote after his death: 'Die Bekenntniss und Beständigkeit Herzog Johann Friedrichs, hat unsere Kirche mehr gefrommt, als vielleicht die Victoria hat dienen mögen'. (German quotations: ADB 14 p. 326/330) In 1551 Matthes Gebel made a medal with the portrait of a bearded duke, with a clearly visible scar on his left cheek. See also an engraved portrait with a scar made in 1547, the year of the battle of Mühlberg, on: http://www.zeno.org/Kunstwerke/B/Meister+MR%3A+Portr%C3%A4t+des+Herzogs+Johann+Friedrich+von+Sachsen. This scar on the left cheek, which is apparantly part of the iconography of the Duke, is also clearly visible on the blindstamped portrait on the front of this book. So our conclusion must be that this portrait belongs to Johann Friedrich I. The coat of arms on the backcover was made after an engraving of Lucas Cranach, a friend of Johann Friedrich. A statue was erected for Johann Friedrich, the socalled 'Hanfried-Denkmal', in 1858 to commemorate the founding of the University in 1558, of which Johann Friedrich had been the driving force. (See: http://www.jenakultur.de/de/195487) The 'Deutsches Historisches Museum' holds a number of paintings (1630), which depict the life of this protestant Saint in 28 scenes) (See for Johann Friedrich as a protestant Saint also: http://www.heiligenlexikon.de/BiographienJ/Johann_Friedrich_von_Sachsen.html) Wechel's woodcut printer's mark on the title, depicting the winged horse Pegasus gracefully arched over a caduceus and 2 intertwined cornucopiae) (Condition: Cover soiled and worn at the extremities; some damage to the head and tail of the back, and to the frontcover; corners heavily bumped; 2 old ownership entries on the title; small inscription with references to Cicero on the front pastedown; small inscription on the verso of the title; occasional old red ink underlinings; occasional marginalia in the Apologia, probably made by Christoph Richter (see below in 'Provenance') (Note: This book is a reissue of a revised Latin translation of Herodotus' 'Historiae', made by Lorenzo Vallo, and published by the French humanist/scholar Henri Estienne, or in Latin Henricus Stephanus, in Geneva in 1566. Stephanus plays an important role in the history of the reception of Herodotus. In 1474 the Latin translation of Valla was first published. 1502 saw the 'editio princeps' of the Greek text. In the same time the work of the detractors and critics of this Greek historian came on the market, especially Plutarch's 'De Herodoti malignitate' (1509), but also works of Aristotle (Herodotus is ignorant), Flavius Josephus (he is a liar), Strabo (he likes to tell simple stories), Lucianus (does not tell the truth), Gellius (he invents stories). The supporters of Herodotus were in the minority. We only mention Cicero, who called him 'Pater historiae'. When Henri Estienne was planning to publish a new revised Latin translation of Herodotus, he decided to try his talents as a critic on Herodotus, and wrote in his defence his 'Apologia pro Herodoto', to accompany this revised translation, which was published by him in Geneva in 1566. This treatise is full of philological niceties and Latin and Greek quotations, to be read by a humanist forum. (See 'Henrici Stephani Apologia pro Herodoto. Henri Estienne, Apologie für Herodot, nach der Erstausgabe (Genf 1566) herausgegeben und übersetzt von Johannes Kramer', Meisenheim am Glan, Hain, 1980, p. VII. A copy of this book is sold together with this 1584 edition) In the introductory letter of the German classical scholar Fredericus Sylburg we are told, that this 1584 reissue was published, no, not for the money, but because there arose a demand for a Latin translation of Herodotus from Eastern Europe ('e Pannonia superiore, Boiemia, & aliis quibusdam locis', leaf a2 recto). It was brought on the market, not to compete with the folio edition of 1566, but for people who could not afford such an expensive book, and prefered a smaller and cheaper edition ('nostra vero tenuioris fortunae hominibus', leaf a2 recto). Sylburg added, he says, occasional marginal notes to the text of his own and other scholars) (Provenance: The provenance theme of this book is Saxonian and Lutheran. 1: An old and long inscription written on the front flyleaf: 'Tout avec Dieu. Pour temoigner ma tres bonne amitie et affection, que je porte a Monsr. Jean Trölschen, je luy ay donne ceste livre priant de le prandre a bon gre, et deme(u)rant jusque au tombeau, Son bien humble et bien affectione serviteur M. Jean Ernst Gerard Jenensis'. There are two Lutheran theologians bearing the name 'Johannes Ern....

(Reliure de la fin du XVIe, début XVIIe siècle.). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Rare et belle édition, avec les commentaires de Vivés. On sait l'attachement de la religion protestante à l'Augustianisme qui rendait les textes d'Augustin suspects aux catholiques. Aussi, toutes les éditions anciennes de Saint-Augustin sont rares, et particulièrement en français. Dans sa préface, Jean Louis Vivés déclare qu'il a entrepris ces commentaires à la demande d'Erasme, qui ne trouvait pas le temps de s'en charger. Quand Erasme "après avoir recogneu Sainct Hiersme & S. Cyprian, eut délibéré de purger pareillement S. Augustin, & n'eut pas loisir, lui estant seul, de courir par dessus tant d'oeuvres & de bons livres, estant aussi occupé en d'autres choses grandes & excellentes, il s'aioignit d'autres ou compagnons à l'oeuvre, ou ministres : entre lesquels il me choisit aussi." Chaque paragraphe de la "Cité de Dieu" est suivi du commentaire de Jean-Louis Vivés. Cette troisième édition, "revue et corrigée de nouveau" est augmentée du "Traité de l'unité de l'Eglise contre Petilian Evesque donatiste & des épistres XLVIII & L du mesme auteur, respondant à ceux qui demandent deux religions,& vivre en liberté de conscience : prouvant amplement que les hérétiques doivent estre contrains par les loix & ordonnances des princes chrestiens d'embrasser & suivre l'union catholique, apostolique & romaine. Plus, le dialogue de sainct Hierosme contre les lucifériens : le tout mis en françois, par Jacques Tigeou angevin." Exemplaire entièrement réglé. De petits défauts à la reliure. Très bel exemplaire luxueusement relié vers 1600, portant un monogramme sur les plats que nous ne savons pas identifier. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

L'Opera si apre con la dedicatoria dell'Autore a Ferrante Gonzaga, e due ulteriori dedicatorie "Al Lettore" di Giovan Battista Licini e "Ai Lettori" dello Stampatore, cui seguono due sonetti in lode del Tasso di Angello Grillo. Inizia quindi il testo vero e proprio, con la prima parte che comprende "Degli Accademici della Crusca. Difesa dell'Orlando Furioso dell'Ariosto, contra 'l Dialogo dell'Epica poesia di Cammillo Pellegrino", Stacciata prima, dedicata a Orazio Rucellai da Bastiano De Rossi. Quindi la seconda parte, con frontespizio autonomo, che comprende: "Apologia del Sig. Torquato Tasso"; "Lettera diverse scritte dal Sig. Torquato Tasso et da altri in materia della Gierusalemme Liberata. Con una del Tasso medesimo, in lode dell'Ariosto", dedicata a Mauritio Cataneo; "Parere del Signor Francesco Patrici in difesa dell'Ariosto"; "Difese dell'Orlando Furioso dell'Ariosto fatte dal Signor Horatio Ariosto". Su ambedue i frontespizi marca tipografica raffigurante una salamandra tra le fiamme e il motto "Illaesa estinguo". "Nel 1584 il letterato Camillo Pellegrino scrisse un dialogo (Il Carrafa overo dell?epica poesia) in cui tesseva lodi altissime della Gerusalemme liberata del Tasso, poema che veniva anteposto all?Orlando furioso dell?Ariosto. In contrasto con le opinioni del Pellegrino i soci della Crusca fiorentina, cioè Lionardo Salviati e altri, presero le difese dell?Ariosto, dichiarando di anteporre all?Amadigi di Bernardo Tasso e alla Liberata del figlio Torquato non solo il Furioso, ma anche il Morgante di Pulci, l?Innamorato del Boiardo e l?Avarchide di Alamanni. Torquato, che era allora rinchiuso nella prigione di Sant?Anna, decise di rispondere, componendo in pochi giorni, tra il marzo e l?aprile del 1585, l?Apologia in difesa della Gerusalemme liberata. Ebbe origine in questo modo la polemica tra ariostisti e tassiani, che fu una delle più fitte e convulse dell?intero Cinquecento" (dal Dizionario Zanichelli on line). L'Opera fu pubblicata di nuovo nello stesso anno dall'Osanna a Mantova.

        Cosmographia sive descriptio universi Orbis... Adiecti sunt alii, tum Gemmae Frisii, tum aliorum auctorum eius argumenti tractatus ac libelli varij... -

      Antwerpen, Beller, 1584.In - 4. Bella legatura moderna in stile dell'epoca in piena pelle con filetti e fregi dorati sui piatti, titolo impr. in oro, dorso con nervi e fregi impressi a secco. Con un globo sul frontespizio, un mappamondo a doppia pagina, moltissime illustrazioni n.t., 5 con parti mobili, e diversi graziosi capilettera, il tutto inc. in legno. (16), 478 (recte 465), (3) pp.; le pp. 73 - 81 e 426 - 429 saltate per errore di stampa, ma completo; frontespizio con piccoli restauri marginali e alcune carte lievemente ossidate; buon esemplare, completo di tutte le parti mobili e del grande mappamondo che spesso manca. La prima di tre tirature di questa importante edizione che, per l'aggiunta di diversi studi e commentari di vari astronomi (alcuni pubblicati per la prima volta), è molto più ampia delle precedenti composte per lo più da 50 - 70 carte (prima edizione: 1524). Ortroy, Apian, 59. Adams A - 1286. DSB I, pp. 178 - 179: «Apian was a pioneer in astronomical and geographical instrumentation... (his) first major work, Cosmographia, was based on Ptolomy. Starting with the distinction between cosmography, geography, and chorography, and using an ingenious and simple diagram, the book defines terrestrial grids; describes the use of maps and simple surveying; defines weather and climate; and provides thumbnail sketches of the continents. In its later form, as modified by Gemma Frisius, the Cosmographia was one of the most popular texts of the time...» The first of three issues of this greatly enlarged edition (earlier editions have about 50 - 70 leaves only): "Clement pronounces this the best edition" (Sabin 1751). For a list of the many additions by Gemma Frisius, Georg Peurbach, Sebastian Münster a.o., cf. Ortroy 59. With a globe on title - page, many woodcut initials, a folding world map, and many woodcut illustrations and diagrams, 5 with volvelles. Small marginal repairs to title and some occasional light toning of the paper; generally a good and complete copy, in an attractive period - style calf binding with gilt and blind - stamped ornaments.

        Orlando Furioso

      Venice: Francesco de Franceschi,, 1584. Nuovamente adornato di Figure di Rame da Girolamo Porro... et di altre cose che saranno notate nella seguente facciata. Quarto in eights (263 × 178 mm). Late 18th century English diced russia, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, three-line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Engraved "architectural" title page, 2 engraved divisional titles, 51 plates. From the library of William Cavendish, seventh Duke of Devonshire (1808-1891) with his Chatsworth bookplate; Neatham Mill Library embossed stamp on a rear blank. Front hinge split but sound, small chip at head of spine. A truly handsome copy. First edition with these superb illustrations by Girolamo Porro and one of the most attractive editions of Ariosto's masterpiece. "Ariosto's Orlando Furioso had become wildly successful by the time the author died in 1533. Print records document that the poem was a best seller in the cinquecento, its popularity lasting well into the next century... By 1600 well over 100 editions had been published. Often produced to look like classical texts with commentaries and other accompanying paratexts (for example, the life of the poet, lists of classical allusions, historical notes), these editions helped the poem become an important touchstone in debates over narrative poetry, with readers sometimes arguing that Orlando Furioso was equal or even superior to classical narrative poems. This process of the poem's canonisation as an authoritative text would eventually earn it the status of a new kind of classical work, a vernacular classic that helped to grant the Italian language a degree of linguistic nobility... [in addition] The Orlando Furioso was a source of inspiration for European illustrators and painters [and] the editions of Gabriel Giolito (Venice, 1542) and Francesco dei Franceschi (Venice, 1584) are especially handsome" (Dennis Looney in Italian Literary Studies I, 2007, p. 92).

        The Art of Riding, set foorth in a breefe Treatise, with a due interpretation out of certeine places alledged out of Xenophon, and Gryson, verie expert and excellent Horssemen: wherein also the true use of the hand by the said Grysons rules and precepts is speciallie touched: and how the Author of this present worke hath put the same in practice, also what profit men may reape thereby [...] Lastlie, is added a short discourse of the Chaine or Cavezzan, the Trench, and the Martingale: written by a Gentleman of great skill and long experience in the said Art.

      London, Henry Denham, 1584.. 4to. (8), 79, (1) pp. With woodcut headpiece on t. p. and initials. 19th century orange-red crushed morocco by Riviere with leading edges gilt and elaborate gilt inner dentelle, rebacked. All edges gilt.. The exceedingly rare first edition of one of the earliest English treatises on horsemanship, derived in part from Xenophon, Federico Grisone's "Ordini di cavalcare", and other authors, and in part from Astley's own experience. This is, in fact, the first translation into English of Xenophon's treatise "Peri hippikes" ("On horsemanship"). - The publication of Astley's The Art of Riding, perhaps his single most lasting achievement, came late in his life as an Elizabethan courtier. Here, he relays the doctrine of the Italian riding schools as he and other Gentleman Pensioners understood it, particularly on training the horse to respond to the hand. Astley was on friendly terms with Thomas Blundeville, whose Grisone translation two decades earlier counts as the first treatise on horsemanship to be published in English. - First three leaves slightly browned, with the upper right corner of each leaf imperceptibly restored from another copy; a closed tear to f. A4. Altogether a remarkable clean and crisp copy in an English master binding. The Fitzwilliam-Gloucester copy, bound with a common companion piece, Claudio Corte's "The Art of Riding" (also published by Denham in the same year) commanded 14,400 at Christie's in 2006. The catalogue notes that the scarcity of these two work "at auction varies markedly; ABPC records some 5 copies of Corte's work at auction since 1975, but none of Astley's". - Huth p. 11. STC 884. Mellon/Podeschi 12. Hoffmann III, 609 (s. v. Xenophon).

        Emblemes, ou devises chrestiennes

      1584. DE MONTENAY, Georgette. Emblematum Christianorum Centuria / Cent Emblemes Chrestiens. [8], 100, [8, incl. final blank] ff. Illustrated with an etched portrait of the author and 100 engraved plates by Pierre Woeiriot, printed on rectos. Small 4to., 192 x 147 mm, bound in nineteenth-century purple crushed morocco by Lortic, gilt-lettered spine, gilt board edges, turn-ins, and marbled edges. Tiguri [Zurich]: Christoph Froschauer, 1584. |~||~||~||~| First Latin Edition, Only Emblem Book written by a Woman, the First Emblem Book with Engraved Picturae (instead of woodcuts), and one of the First Protestant Emblem Books. The first edition of 1567 survives in only one copy in the Royal Library in Copenhagen! The latest research by Adams, Rawles and Saunders indicates that de Montenay's Emblemes "was withdrawn from circulation…but this remarkable publishing history does not stop there; in 1620, the first edition (from Lyons) is reissued in La Rochelle: we have to envisage printed sheets being preserved for over 50 years from 1567, and ultimately making their way across France to La Rochelle" (A Bibliography of French Emblem Books, p. 177). The coppperplate engravings by Pierre Woeiriot (1532-1599), French engraver, goldsmith, painter, sculptor and medallist, are all signed with the artist's mark of the Lorraine cross. Woeriot's engraved designs are highly imaginative, delicate and artistic renderings. They are set within in-depth backgrounds of lush landscapes and/or architectural settings of castles, churches, private and public houses, street scenes, and atmospheric cottages in local villages. "The first book of Christian emblems printed in French" and the only emblem book written in any language by a woman (Larsen & Winn, Writings by Pre-Revolutionary French Women, p 125). De Montenay's dedication beginning on a2 is to Jeanne d'Albret, Queen of Navarre, a well-known supporter of Calvinistic ideas, thus offering a clear signal of the author's Calvinist sympathies. The first emblem in the series depicts Jeanne d'Albret laying the foundations of the Protestant faith with bricks (or is it books?). Georgette de Montenay (1540-1581), one of an exceptionally small number of sixteenth-century women poets, was part of the entourage of the daughter of fellow poet Marguerite de Navarre. In the dedication, De Montenay claims to be the first to write religious emblems: "Alciat feit des Emblémes exquis//Lesquels voyant de plusieurs requis//Desir me prit de commencer les miens//Lesquels ie croy estre premier Chrestiens." Woeriot's etched portrait of Montenay is dated 1567. The same engraved plates, including the portrait, were used in Lyon in 1571, then for the present edition published in Zurich 1584, the Heidelberg 1602 (a reissue of this edition), and Frankfurt 1619 with a Latin text. There was also a 1620 reissue in La Rochelle of the 1567/1571 edition. All are very rare.

        Ritterliche Reutter Kunst ... durch.. den Herrn L.V.C. gewesener Keyserlicher Maiestat Stallmeister

      Frankfurt: 1584. Folio (317 x 205 mm). [44], 254, [5] ff. (the last blank). Title printed in red and black with vignette of a noble rider and his mount, arms of the dedicatee Hans Philip Landschad von und zu Steinach, approximately 145 woodcut illustrations (including some repeats), most after Jost Amman, inserted double-page woodcut of a tournament signed with Amman?'s monogram; woodcut tail-piece, Feyerabend's large woodcut device at end, Fraktur initials. Title browned and stained with corners creased, occasional marginal dampstaining, variable discoloration. Contemporary German vellum over flexible pasteboards, early manuscript title on spine (faded), slits for two fore-edge ties.*** first edition of a splendidly illustrated manual for both the farrier and gentleman horseman, treating the care and maintenance of horses, their breeding, nourishment, training, diseases, and equipment. The third and longest part is devoted to equine medicine. The ?"Knightly Art of Riding?" opens with a parade of 21 nearly full-page woodcut portraits of richly costumed Mummern, or riders in masquerade for carnival, dressed as Bacchus, Neptune, a Turkish pasha, a Moor, Indians, Water, Fire, the Earth, Jupiter, Summer, etc. These are followed by examples of different jousting techniques (20 woodcuts, a few signed with the monogram MF) and the proper attire and equestrian comportment of members of the court and nobles from different regions (41 cuts). In the detailed manual on horse-breeding that follows, the many illustrations of horses ?- mating, alone, with their mounts, grooms, veterinarians, or farriers ?- are shown in their daily habitats, in the stable, being fed, given medicine and receiving bloodletting, providing invaluable insights into contemporary practices. The double-page tournament cut, signed with Amman's monogram and dated 1565, was previously used in Feyerabend's 1566 and 1578 editions of Georg Rüxner's Thurnierbuch, and the block shows some wear in this impression. The many smaller woodcuts show bits, bridles, spurs, and other equine accoutrements. Jost Amman is recognized as one of the most expressive and prolific graphic artists of the sixteenth century. Originally from Zurich, at the age of 21 he established himself in Nuremberg, and soon after, following the sudden death from plague of Virgil Solis, he became the principal illustrator for the Frankfurt publisher Sigmund Feyerabend. Little is known of Amman?'s life, and no paintings of his survive, his extant oeuvre consisting entirely of watercolor drawings, some etchings, and hundreds of woodcuts. Amman supplied the designs (either through drawings on the woodblocks or paper sheets glued to the blocks) for most of the blocks produced for Feyerabend, which were then cut by other Formschneider, such as Lukas Meyer or Meier, whose monogram MF (Nagler 4:1777) appears on a few of the cuts of pairs of jousting knights. As was customary, Amman?'s own monogram signature would have been reserved only for those blocks he cut himself. ?"Imperial stable-master," according to the title, the anonymous author, whose initials L.V.C. remain unidentified, intended the work for a broad audience ?-"allen rittermessigen und adelichen Personen, auch andern so mit Pferden und der Reuttery umbgehen?" (as stated in the lengthy title). Amman?'s splendid woodcut illustrations ensured the book?'s popularity, and only a handful of copies have survived the enthusiasm and no doubt hands-on use of their first owners. Feyerabend reprinted some of Amman's woodcuts with selections from the text later in 1584 (Artliche und Kunstreiche Figuren zu der Reuterei), and in his expanded 1599 edition of miscellaneous woodcuts by Amman, the Kunstbüchlein. Complete copies appear rarely on the market. OCLC lists 5 copies in American libraries.

        RIME ET PROSE. Nuovamente poste in luce.

      appresso Giulio Vasalini, In Venetia 1584 - Opera dedicata alla Sig.ra Bradamante Bevilacqua da Este. Cm.13x7,4. Pg.(24),228. Modesta legatura in pergamena rigida, con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Marca tipografica incisa in ovale al frontespizio. Alcuni capilettera e piccoli cartigli incisi. Due restauri cartacei, uno a mendare piccola mancanza rettangolare che interessa il frontespizio e la prima carta della dedicatoria, l'altra per recuperare un tassello circolare (del diametro di cm.1,5) rimosso alle ultime due carte: ciò crea una minima mancanza nel testo al recto della carta U5 e al Registro, mentre la carta U6 è bianca. Il volume comprende: "Rime", i Dialoghi "Il Messaggiero al Serenissimo Prencipe di Mantova", "Il Gonzaga, del Piacere honesto à seggi", "Il Cavalier amante, e la Gentildonna amata, al Signor Giulio Mosto", "Il Gonzaga secondo, del giuoco, al Sig.Alessandro Pocaterra" e i Discorsi "Della virtù Heroica, & della Charità, al Card.Cesareo" e "Della virtù Feminile, & Donnesca, alla Serenissima Duchessa di Mantova". Il presente volume costituisce il terzo di una serie di sei che lo stampatore ferrarese Giulio Vasalini (o Vassalini) pubblicò a Venezia e a Ferrara tra il 1583 e il 1587, riprendendo precedenti edizioni aldine e giuntine. In particolare i Dialoghi "Il Messaggiero" e "Il Gonzaga secondo" e i due Discorsi sulla Virtù avevano visto la luce nel 1582, all'insaputa del Tasso, per i torchi di Bernardo Giunta. 150 gr.

      Guilliam van, Nieuwelandt, 1584-1635. Clavdivs Domitivs Nero, tragoedie, T'Hantwerpen, By Guilliam van Tongheren, boeckvercooper inde Camerstraet, inden Griffoen. 1618. , According to Houbraken, Willem van Nieulandt II (1584ñ1635) was a Dutch Golden Age painter and engraver from Antwerp. He was a pupil of Roelant Savery in Amsterdam, and he left him to travel to Rome, where he became a student of Paulus Bril. He returned to Amsterdam (via Antwerp) in 1607, and became a respected poet there as well as Italianate painter. , His work displays similarities with Renaissance dramas of progressive Amsterdam authors, although he was prone to writing ìblood soaked dramasî as in Nero.

(8), 831, (1) pp.. The very rare first edition of Julius Pace's seminal "Organon"-edition, which was the standard-edition of the logical texts of Aristotle throughout more than a century, running through at least 11 editions before 1624. Pace's version of the text, in Greek-Latin parallels, and with Pace's inspired commentaries and interpretations, profoundly influenced Renaissance thought, determining the course of the Organon-interpretation throughout this period and inspiring much original philosophical thought. Pace's interpretation of Aristotle's logical works - arguably the most influential collection of works in the history of Western thought - not only changed the face of Renaissance thought, it has remained the authoritative reading of Aristotle's "Organon" to this day and is still considered the most important and authoritative reading of the texts. As Ross puts it in the Preface to his translation of the logical works (the standard Oxford-edition): "My chief authority in matters of interpretation has been Pacius". ("The Works of Aristotle Translated into English Under the Editorship of W.D. Ross. Volume I". Oxford University Press). To this day, a proper study of Aristotle's "Organon" - and Porphyrios' "Isagoge" - is still unthinkable without references to Pace, his rendering of the text, and his interpretations of it. The famous "Porphyrian Tree" or "arbor porphyriana", which has gone down in history as a standard presentation of the basis of Aristotle's thought, was presented by Porphyrios in his "Isagoge", which since Antiquity has accompanied Aristotle's "Ornanon" as an introduction thereof. The standard presentation of this tree is that of Pace in the present edition, on p. 9. It is that rendering of it, with occasional slight alterations, which has remained standard ever since 1584. That which we ever since Antiquity have called the "Organon" comprises the logical works of Aristotle: 1. Categories, 2. On Interpretation, 3. Prior Analytics, 4. Posterior Analytics, 5. Topics, 6. On Sophistical Refutations - which ever since late Antiquity/early Middle Ages have been accompanied by Porphyrios' (233/34-ca.310) "Isagoge", his introduction to Aristotle's "Categories". During the Renaissance, all editions of Aristotle's "Organon" also comprised Porphyrios' "Isagoge", which was seen as necessary for the understanding of Aristotle's logic. Aristotle's logic has played a seminal role in the history of Western thought. No other collection of writings has had an impact on the history of philosophy that comes close to the "Organon", an impact that remains pivotal to this day. "Aristotle's logic, especially his theory of the syllogism, has had an unparalleled influence on the history of Western thought." (SEP).From Antiquity, the earlier middle ages had inherited Boethius' translation of the two first treatises of Aristotle's "Organon", along with Porphyrios' "Isagoge". These works formed the basis for logical study and teaching until the end of the 11th century. Only during the 12th and 13th centuries, were Aristotle's writings - along with those of the Arabic and some of the Greek commentators - translated into Latin. When the medieval universities reached their full development during the thirteenth century, Aristotle's works were adapted as the standard textbooks for all philosophical disciplines - thus modern terms for many philosophical and scientific disciplines correspond to the titles of Aristotle's works (e.g. Ethics, Physics, Metaphysics). Through Aristotle's works, the West thus acquired, not only the specific problems and ideas that were being dealt with at the universities, but also the terminology used to describe and discuss them and the systematic framework within which all relevant problems should and could be treated. But come the Renaissance, we see a clear change in the use of Aristotle's works. We here witness something other than a mere continuation of the late medieval Aristotelianism. The Humanists began supplying new translations of Aristotle's works and translated all the Greek commentators of Aristotle, many of them for the first time. And thus, a tendency to emphasize the original Greek Aristotle developed, a tendency that became pivotal for the development of modern thought - the development of modern science and modern philosophy is inextricably linked with the Renaissance Humanist editions of Aristotle's works in Greek (with Latin parallel-text). The "Organon", Aristotle's seminal logical writings, occupies a central position within the Aristotelian body of writing and thus within the development of Western thought. Certain Humanist versions of the Greek text and the Latin translations, as well as the interpretations of them, thus came to play a seminal role in the trajectory of Renaissance and modern though, Pace's "Organon"-edition presumably being THE most important and influential edition ever to have appeared. "The medieval traditions of logical writing survived well into the sixteenth century particularly at Paris and at the Spanish universities, though with considerable internal changes. Treatises on sophisms and on proofs of terms ceased to be written; whereas there was a sudden flurry of activity concerned with the various divisions of terms and with the opposition of propositions, i.e. the logical relations between different kinds of categorical proposition. These internal changes were not, however, sufficient to keep the tradition alive, and after about 1530 not only did new writing on the specifically medieval contributions to logic cease, but the publication of medieval logicians virtually ceased. The main exceptions were the logical commentaries by (or attributed to) such authors as Thomas Aquinas and John Duns Scotus, which found a place in their "Opera Omnia", and which benefited from a revived interest in the great medieval metaphysicians.The main changes in the teaching and writing of logic during the sixteenth century were due to the impact of humanism. First, commentaries on Aristotle came to display a totally new style of writing. One reason for this was the influence of new translations of Aristotle, and new attitudes to the Greek text. Another reason was the publication of the Greek commentators on Aristotle's logic, Alexander, Themistius, Ammonius, Philoponus and Simplicius. A third reason was the new emphasis on Averroes, which expressed itself in the great Aristotle-Averroes edition of 1550-1552. The effects of these new factors can be seen in the commentaries on individual works of the "Organon" by such Italians as Agostino Nifo (1473-1546) and Jacopo Zabarella (1533-1589), the latter of whom offered a particularly influential account of scientific method. They can also be seen in the "Organon" edition of Giulio Pace (1550-1635), which was first published in 1584 and contained the Greek text side-by-side with a new translation which was designed not only to read well but also to capture the philosophical significance of Aristotle's words." (Raul Corazzon, "History of Renaissance and Modern Logic from 1400 to Stuart Mill")."No editor better understood the nature of this Treatise of Aristotle than Julius Pacius, who was the preceptor of Casaubon, and profoundedly skilled in all the arcane of the Peripatetic philosophy, in both the Greek and Latin tongues." (Dibdin I: 318)Giulio Pace of Beriga (or Julius Pace/Pacius) (1550 - 1635) was a famous Italian Aristotelian scholar and jurist. He was born in Vicenza and studied law and philosophy in Padua. He was inspired by the Reformation and put on trial by the Inquisition. Therefore he had to flee Italy and escaped, first to Geneva, thereafter to Germany. While in Heidelberg, he converted to Protestantism. He was highly respected as an academic and was widely known for his deep knowledge and understanding of Aristotle, whom he became famous for translating. He was elected public professor in Geneva, where he taught for ten years (1575-1585). The next ten years he spent teaching law at the University of Heidelberg (where he got into different conflicts, especially with the philosophical faculty for giving private tuition in the controversial Ramist logic). After Heidelberg, he taught at different universities throughout Europe, where he was especially well known for his 1584-edition of Aristotle's "Organon", which played a definitive role in Aristotle-scholarship and philosophy in general throughout all of Europe.Dibdin I:318; Adams A:1866

        M. Verrii Flacci quae extant. Et Sex. Pompei Festi De verborum significatione libri XX. Cum vetusto Bibliothecae Farnesianae exemplari Romae nuper edito, collati; ex quo lacunae pene omnes sunt suppletae. In eos libros Ant. Augustini annotationes, ex editione Veneta, Io. Scaligeri castigationes recognitae, ex Parisiensi, Ful. Ursini notae, ex Romana. Accesserunt nunc denique doctissimorum virorum notae ex eorum scriptis hinc inde collectae

      Paris, apud Arnoldum Sittart, 1584. 8vo. (28),309,(1),(24, last 2 p. blank), 75,(11),216,(24),84 p. Limp vellum. 17 cm (Ref: Smitskamp 61; Schweiger 355 & 1134; Brunet 5,2 1148) (Details: 5 thongs laced through cover; engraved printer's mark on title, motto: 'finis coronat opus') (Condition: The vellum is probably recycled from another book; that is why the cover is wrinkled, dog-eared, sl. soiled, and cut short; a small piece of the outer-edge of the backcover has gone; 3 names and a small inscription on the title, 1 name has been erased; partly slightly waterstained at the lower margin; some hardly visible pinpoint wormholes near the right lower corner of one quarter of the book) (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, beliefs 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; an other epitome of this epitome of Festus was made in the 9th century by the historian Paulus Diaconus. The original work of Verrius is completely lost, and only 1 manuscript of Festus survived the Middle Ages in a 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. He also added a commentary. It remained dominant for 2 centuries. Fulvius added in this edition suggestions concerning Greek material. J.J. Scaliger, 1540-1609, produced a highly acclaimed edition in 1575. He was praised for having successfully completed the gaps and damaged passages of the Farnese manuscript. Grafton says about this edition that 'fluency in conjecture and attention to detail could hardly be raised to a higher level'. (A. Grafton. Joseph Scaliger, a study in the history of classical scholarship, Oxf. 1983, vol. 1, p. 134/160) This edition of 1584 repeats Scaliger's of 1575. The text of Agustin is also printed, followed by 75 p. with his annotations, and followed by a 216 p. commentary by Scaliger; at the end we find the notes of Ursinus) (Collation: +6, *8, a - x8, A - V8 X2, 2A - 2E8 2F2) (Photographs on request)
