        1584 History of SCOTLAND George Buchanan King Arthur England Mary Stuart Britain

      Francofurti : Excudebat Ioan. Wechelus, impensis Sigis. Feyerabendij, 1584. Second edition. - 1584 History of SCOTLAND George Buchanan King Arthur England Mary Stuart Britain George Buchanan was a 16th-century Scottish historian who has been lauded as “the most profound intellectual 16th-century Scotland produced.” He was known for many historical writings, but his final major work, “History of Scotland” was his attempt to skew or change the perceived Scottish national history. The majority of the work is based on the history of Hector Boece and his 15th-century Scottish philosophy. Buchanan himself knew that his work would be offensive to many Scots. He said it would, “content few and displease many” The work was so controversial and disliked that an official Scottish Parliament proclamation was issued to have all copies of it be returned and purged. Buchanan was not willing to stand for the Scottish dependency on England, and above all Buchanan sought a purely Scottish freedom, both political and religious. This 1584 second edition is considered a much more accurate and thorough edition that the original 1582. (Durkan, xv). It also includes a chapter on King Arthur and his knights of the roundtable.

        Trattato dell'arte de la pittura, di Gio. Paolo Lomazzo milanese pittore. Diviso in sette libri. Ne' quali si contiene tutta la theorica, & la prattica d'essa pittura.

      Milano, Paolo Gottardo Da Ponte, 1584. - 4to. (40), 700 (but: 698), (2) pp. With armorial title woodcut and half-page woodcut portrait on fol. B1. Contemporary full vellum with marbled edges. Second edition, the earliest one obtainable and usually considered the first altogether (a single copy of an edition published by Da Ponte in 1582 has been discovered in the Biblioteca della Collegiata S. Pietro Apostolo in Broni near Pavia). The principal work of the Milan artist and theoretician of art, Giampaolo Lomazzo, has been called "the most complete treatise on the art theory, design, and iconography of the Mannerist period" (Arntzen/R.); indeed, "the true Bible of Mannerism" (cf. Schlosser). Purposefully divided into the mystical number of seven books, Lomazzo's treatise describes first proportions (with a discussion of Dürer, who was much-received in Italy), then the expression of feelings, colours, light and shade, linear perspective, and practical painting; the seventh and final book treats matter and substances, touching upon - and greatly expanding on - Armenini. "These last two chapters are of the greatest importance for understanding the essence of Mannerism, providing quite simply one of the most extensive accounts" (ibid.). - Some occasional browning and waterstaining near beginning; slight paper flaw to fol. E3 (not affecting legibility). Numerous errors in pagination; quire Y jumbled but complete. A small perforation to the spine; textblock curled. Old ownership on front flyleaf obliterated in ink. A single copy in German auction records. Edit 16, CNCE 24452 (Var. A). Adams L 1419. BM-STC Italian 391. Cicognara 159. Schlosser 352 Arntzen/Rainwater H 43. Kat. der Ornamentstichslg. Berlin 4612.

      1584 - Woodcut device on title-page and last leaf, portrait on verso of title and 211 woodcut emblems. 12mo (130 x 75mm). Contemporary vellum (remains of later ties). First edition thus, a new translation into French by Claude Mignault and a newly cut series of 211 emblems in thematic order. ?Mignault's translation, he tells us in his Preface, was undertaken merely to pass the time while travelling, and he endeavours to play down its value, emphasising only his desire to convey to others the pleasure he himself has taken in the emblems. This does not prevent his criticising his predecessors, Jean Lefevre (1536) and Aneau (1549). Mignault's translations are much more varied than Lefevre or Aneau's: some are weak, while others show a certain literary intention. As well as the emblems and their brief commentaries in Latin and French, the 1584 edition contains an important account of Alciati's life, likewise in the two languages.? (Glasgow University Emblem Project, online). Provenance: Title-page with a contemporary inscription of Fr. Gilbertus of Bethune. Booklabel of Bibliotheque Deprins. Bookplate of Samuel Ashton Thompson Yates. Landwehr, 83. Green, 106-107. [Attributes: First Edition]

        M. Elucidarius. Von allerhand Geschöpffen Gottes, den Engeln, den himmeln Gestirn, Planeten, und wie alle Creaturen geschaffen seind auff Erden.

      Franckfort am Mayn: Christ[ian] Egen[olffs] Erden [colophon: Adam Loniceri, Johannis Cnipii, Andronici secundi doctorum & Pauli Steinmeyers], 1584. 4to (19 cm, 7.5"). [98] pp.; 2 double-sided plts., illus. Uncommon edition of the work called Elucidarius: Based in part on an 11th-century treatise on theology and world history written in Latin by an enigmatic monk living in England at the time of his composition of his treatise, this German vernacular compendium of general knowledge appears here not only much expanded beyond that original work but also => reformed and secularized to some extent, covering geography (including a reference to America), cosmography, and natural history as well as religion — making this one of the earliest such extensive and encyclopedic works written in German.    While there were a number of Frankfurt editions of this and Egenolff and his heirs themselves issued it several times, the present 1584 printing appears to be one of the scarcest: WorldCat reports => only one U.S. institutional location, and that copy is incomplete. The edition features a title-page printed in red and black, with a vignette of a man balancing an armillary sphere on his back and hoisting a compass flanked by a male and a female grotesque; the text is printed in an attractive black letter and opens with => two leaves of full-page woodcut illustrations (God pulling Eve from Adam's side, a set of twenty monstrous humanoids from around the world, a map of the world done after one in the Nuremberg Chronicle, and a scene of a scholar pointing towards the sun and moon). Other woodcut illustrations that range from a quarter of a page to full-page in size include astronomical diagrams, emblematic scenes including cosmological schematics, Atlas supporting the heavens, a well-dressed gentleman making use of a measuring rod, and a beautiful, elaborated version of the Egenolff device on the colophon page in which the printer's characteristic flaming, sacrificed heart is shown between apposite views of Abraham and Isaac and Balaam and his ass.    In supplement to the main portion, following it, is Jakob Köbel's "Bauren Compassz" (Bauern-Compass, or Farmer's Compass).    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Alden, European Americana, 584/44; Index Aurel. 160.003; Richter, Egenolffs Erben, 516; VD16 L 3100 (& Köbel, Bauernkompaß: VD16 K 160). Not in Adams. Recent plain, unmarked cream paper–covered boards; evidence of sometime (long ago?) removal of an oval stamp from title-page. Pages age-toned with minor offsetting and scattered light spots, generally clean. => A remarkable work, in a desirable copy.

It was the first Bible taken to America on the Mayflower. Textually, the Geneva Bible offered a number of radical changes: It was the first Bible in English to add numbered verses to each chapter of scripture. Also the Geneva was the first "Study Bible" with extensive commentary notes in the margins. The Geneva Bible is the version quoted from hundreds of times by William Shakespeare in his plays. First printed in 1560, the Geneva Bible is the only Bible ever able to outsell and exceed the popularity of the King James Bible. Refs Darlow & Moule 139.

This fine copy comes from the library of the greatest French book collector since Jean Grolier, Jacques-Auguste de Thou (1553-1617), and his first wife Marie de Barbançon de Cany. The present copy has the rare first alliance supralibros (Olivier 216, 6), and de Thou's ms. library mark at top of front paste-down. It must be counted as a bibliophilic treasure of first rank. Ad I: First edition. Major work of the Florentine scholar and literary critic L. Salviati (1540-1589) which, according to the 'Concise Encyclopedia of the Italian Renaissance', "is still important for the precision and originality of its grammatical discussions". Appended to the third book of part II is Boccaccio's ninth novel, printed in 13 different Italian dialects. At the end there is an exhaustive title list to both parts, containing dozens of literary works of the 14th century, documenting the well-founded way in which literature and language of the Italian Renaissance are treated here. The indices are bound in at the end instead of the beginning. - Adams S-204 (part I only); STC, (Italian), 601; Gamba 875. Ad II: First edition. A dialogue about various passages from Boccaccio's Decamerone, held in Lyons by a French and a Florentine gentleman.

Ad III: First edition of this important work on the Tuscan dialect by the Florentine philologist Giorgio Bartoli (1534-1583), posthumously published by his brother Cosimo. Bartoli's advanced approach to his research in phonology and pronunciation was not matched until the beginning of modern linguistic sciences in the 19th century. In his dedicatory letter to Lorenzo Giacomini Tebalducci Malespini, a close friend of the author and promoter of the present edition, C. Bartoli demonstrates how non-Tuscans pronounce some letters of the alphabet. - STC, (Italian), 74; Gamba 1251. Dizionario biografico degli Italiani VI, 576. Not in Adams.

        Perusini agri; exactissima novissimaque descriptio auctore Egnatio Dante

      Anversa 1584 - Bella mappa del territorio perugino, pubblicata nel Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. La carta si basa sul lavoro di Ignazio Danti del 1580, incisa da Mario Cartaro (Bifolco-Ronca, tav. 103; Meurer p. 136-137). Esemplare tratto dall'edizione latina del 1584, la PRIMA EDIZIONE del Theatrum in cui questa mappa è presente. Incisione su rame, magnifica coloritura coeva, testo latino al verso, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Koeman: "La posizione unica detenuta dal Thatrum di Ortelius nella storia della cartografia è da attribuirsi principalmente alla sua qualifica di primo atlante moderno sistematico del mondo" A nice map of the fields of Perugia, published in Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Ortelius. The map is based on Egnatio Danti's 1580 Perugia map, engraved by Mario Cartaro (Bifolco - Ronca, tav. 103; Meurer p. 136-137). From the 1584 Latin edition of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum by Abraham Ortelius, that is the first edition of atlas in which this map occures. Copper engraving, original colors, in very good condition. Latin text on the verso. Koeman: The unique position held by Ortelius' Theatrum in the history of cartography is to be attributed primarily to its qualification as 'the world's first regularly produced atlas.' Its great commercial success 'enabled it to make so great a contribution to geographical culture throughout Europe in the later 16th century.'

Amongst the parts we highlight the following: 1- Albert of Aix (d´Aix-La-Chapelle) De Bello sacro historia, this part narrates the first Crusade to the Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1119, compiled by Albert of Aix from manuscript account of oral testimonies, to date an important account of the Crusade; 2- Hethoum´s [Haython or Hethoun] "Historia Orientalis", this is the Latin translation of Hethoum the historian (1235 - 1314), which narrates the expedition against the Egyptian Mamelouks carried out in Syria at the end of the 13th century by Ghazan Khan, allied to the Armenian King of Cilicie, the Chrypriots, and Christian Orders. Ghazan Khan was vassal to the Mongols of China, he converted to Islam and reigned over a region currently in Irak; 3- Marco Polo´s "Itinerarium, seu de Rebus Orientalibus", the earliest recorded Western narratives of China; 4- Vincent de Beauvais´ "Fragmentum de Rebus Orientalibus", an excerpt from the Speculum Historiale. As noted above, the book is extremely hard to find complete with all the parts, no complete copy appears to have sold at auction, and only a handful are found in institutions, most copies held institutionally appear to have either the first or the second part, rarely together in a single volume; the earliest record we could trace of another complete copy was the one offered by Lathrop Harper in 1975 "Very rare if complete with all the parts". Cordier, Bibl. Sinica III, 2003.

Accesservnt & huic editioni Libri græce scripti, qui vocantur Apocryphi ; cum interlineari interpretatione Latina ex Bibliis complutensibus deprompta

      Antverpiae: Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1584. Folio, 6 parts in 1; pp. [8], 186, [2]; 128; collating: 4, A-Y4, Z6; Aa-Qq4; woodcut device on title page; bound with: Biblica Hebraica, Antverpiae, 1584 [Hebrew-Latin Old Testament, Greek-Latin Apocrypha, etc. in various pagings from back of book], viz.: pp. [20], 183, [1]; 283, [1]; 84; 203, [1]; collating (from the back): ?4, ? 6, A-O6, P8; a-x6, y-z8, aa-gg6, AA-RR6; (in all, 551 leaves); text in double column in Hebrew, Greek, and Latin; early 18th century calf, blindstamped panels on covers, red morocco label on spine; covers with dampstains, corners bumped and showing, small cracks starting at the extremities of the joints, occasional light minor dampstaining, but in all a very good and reasonably sound copy. Terminal flyleaf with elaborately penned inscription: "Isaac Sharpe [flourishes] dono Patris 1719." On the rear pastedown is Sharpe's early "Coll. Mag." bookplate dated April 4, 1683 - possibly the date of his matriculation at Magdalene College, Cambridge. The Greek N.T. starts at the beginning of the volume, and the Hebrew O.T. at the end, with the Greek Apocrypha of 128 pages between them. Each Testament has its own title page, and the mention of the Apocrypha on both suggests that it was intended to form an appendix to either of the Testaments if they were issued separately. See Darlow & Moule 4645 and 5106: "This forms the latter half of the complete Bible in the original languages, with an interlinear Latin translation; the whole reprinted from the Antwerp polyglot"; Voet A2 (p. 320).

        Ambrosii Calepini dictionarium octo linguarum: Respondent autem vocabulis Latinis, Hebraica, Graeca, Gallica, Italica, Germanica, Belgica, Hispanica: Onomasticon proprium nominum

      Basel: Sebastianum Henricpetri, 1584. Hardcover. Very Good. Thick folio (350 x 220mm). Double columns numbered to 1467 and Onomasticon. Woodcut printer’s device of Sebastianum Henricpetri to title and rear blank. Woodcut initials in dedication and prefatory pages. Full period pigskin, stamped in blind with central heraldic device surrounded by prophets, lacking clasps but metal corner pieces remaining; title lightly browned, binding rubbed, some early ownership and library inscriptions on front pastedown. Calepinus’ flagship polyglot dictionary included eleven languages and was followed by Gesner’s list of Classical proper names, the whole a treasure-trove for language studies of the Renaissance period. Ambrogio Calepino, commonly known by the Latin form of his name, Calepinus, which later became nearly synonymous with dictionaries (A ‘calepin’ was a dictionary, often pocket-sized). Calepinus was an Italian lexicographer from Bergamo who entered the Augustinian Order in 1458. His dictionary was first printed in 1502 exclusively as a Latin edition. Subsequent editions were enlarged to include other languages and by the 1580s following editions contained eleven languages, including as named on the title page; Greek, Latin, Hebrew, French Italian, German, and Spanish. Calepinus’ polyglot dictionary was a helpful source for Latin phrases and figures of speech in philosophy and theology. His work remains one of the most popular humanist dictionaries of the period; tracing words back to their Greek and Latin roots as well as noting the specific passages in the primary source material. The main dictionary is followed by the list of Classical proper names, the Onomasticon, deriving from Konrad Gesner (1516-1565), pictured, a Renaissance age Swiss naturalist and bibliographer.

        M VERRII FLACCI QUÆ EXTANT ET SEX POMPEI FESTI DE VERBORUM SIGNIFICATIONE

      Paris: Arnold Sittart, 1584; [Heidelberg]: Peter Santandrea, 1583. This glossary of recondite Latin words and phrases was no doubt bound for a contemporary bibliophile with an extensive library. The "OD" and "I8" at the bottom of the spine appear to be the indication of a shelf location--not something frequently encountered on spines of this period. This designation and the location notation on the front pastedown that clearly relates to it ("Arm. 0. Tab 4. Loc. 18") suggest a library of some complexity and an educated owner who believed in careful organization. While we have not been able to identify "D C G," (s)he would seem also to have been a person of taste and good sense. The binding is attractively decorated while still being practical for scholarly use. The work itself has gone through a number of changes of fortune. The story begins when Verrius, who lived in the time of Augustus, compiled a valuable work, full of information on everything from grammar to mythology. Unfortunately, his text has been largely lost; the authentic fragments fill only the first few leaves of our volume. Fortunately, his work was epitomized by Festus, a ca. third century scholar. Unfortunately, Festus was not a very good epitomizer, and to make matters worse, all of his entries have been lost up to the letter "M." Fortunately, an epitome of the epitome from "A" to "Z" had been made by Paul the Deacon in the eighth century. Valuing the handbook for its information on the writing of correct Latin, Renaissance scholars went to work on this puzzle in the 15th century, and a first version of Paul was published by Zarotus in Milan in 1471. Later scholars published Festus, and the great French classicist Joseph Scaliger (1540-1609) was largely responsible for bringing definitive order out of chaos. His scholarly edition reconstructs the work of Festus as far as one can, filling in the gaps caused by missing pages in the manuscript with conjectures and rectified material from Paul.. 178 x 111 mm. (7 x 4 3/8"). 14 p.l., cccix pp., [13] leaves (last blank); lxxv, [10], ccxvi, [22] pp.; [2] leaves, 84 pp.; [1], 1-196, [18] pp.; 62 pp. Two works, in several parts, bound in one volume. With annotations and commentary by Antonio Augustin, Joseph Scaliger, and Fulvio Orsini. Pleasing contemporary calf, covers with central gilt wreath of olive branches, raised bands, spine panels gilt with cipher "D C G" at center flanked by a palmette and a vegetal trefoil, gilt titling, bottom panel with "OD" and "I8" on either side of the cipher. Printers' devices on the title pages, decorative woodcut initials and headpieces. Front pastedown with what appear to be early library shelf markings; one page with neat early marginalia. Adams V-590 and F-390. Covers slightly marked, spine with a bit of superficial crackling (and with one short crack in the middle of bottom panel), the text with faint browning and isolated minor soiling, a few leaves with long, shallow creases (not affecting legibility), otherwise in excellent condition, the binding solid and without significant wear, and the leaves clean, fresh, and smooth. This glossary of recondite Latin words and phrases was no doubt bound for a contemporary bibliophile with an extensive library. The "OD" and "I8" at the bottom of the spine appear to be the indication of a shelf location--not something frequently encountered on spines of this period. This designation and the location notation on the front pastedown that clearly relates to it ("Arm. 0. Tab 4.

Limp vellum 17 cm (Ref: Smitskamp 61; Schweiger 2,355 & 1134; Brunet 5,2 1148; Renouard-1926, n° 1044 (Renouard et alii, 'Imprimeurs et libraires parisiens du XVIe siècle', Paris, 1964)) (Details: 5 thongs laced through the joints. Engraved printer's mark of Arnoldus Sittart on the title, his motto: 'Finis coronat opus', 'the end crowns the work'. (BaTyR : Base de Typographie de la Renaissance, no. 28409) The printer's mark shows the coat of arms of Cologne, the city where Arnoldus Sittart was born: the escutcheon bears 3 crowns and beneath them are twelve drops; the escutcheon is supported by a standing crowned griffin and idem lion; above the shield a helmet with peacock feathers as crest. (See for an explanation Wikipedia 'Kölner Wappen') (Condition: The vellum is probably recycled from another book; that is why the cover is wrinkled, dog-eared, slighlty soiled, and cut short. A small piece of the outer-edge of the backcover has gone. Three 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)

MDLXXXIIII. 1584 - 1584 Rules of Horsemanship Grisone Horse Training Animal Cruelty Equestrian "From the first it seems that every horse obeys his signal, such that those who watch are amazed." &#151;Pasquale Caracciolo, La Gloria del Cavallo (on Grisone) An extremely rare 16th-century work on horses, cattle-herding, and farming by Frederico Grisone. This book, &#147;The Rules of Horsemanship&#148; was the first book published on horse riding in modern Europe! Grisone was one of the first masters of dressage and teacher of courtly horse riding; many of his training methods influenced horse training and were used all over Europe. However, many of the criticisms he received were of his harsh treatment of horses, and severe spurring, often bordering on animal cruelty to subdue the horse. Other infamous examples of this training method include placing a hedgehog under the animal&#146;s tail, or forcing the horse&#146;s head under water to the point of drowning.

        1584 Reynard (Reinike) the Fox (like Aesop),Schopper.57 woodcuts by Jost Amman

      Nicolaus Basse, Frankfurt am Main 1584 - The first Latin translation of Reynard the Fox by Hartmann Schopper (5th edition), illustrated with 57 woodcuts (51 blocks) by the venerable Jost Ammon & Virgil Solis, and printed at the legendary Frankfurt at Main by the rogue printer Basse. A wonderful example of medieval and renaissance moral literature, delightfully illustrated, likely used for the education of children (as evidenced by the nine woodcuts that have some minor contemporary coloring). Schopper&#146;s Reynard - "This translation, which has contributed so greatly to spread Reynard's fame among scholars who were unable to read his history in any of the Teutonic versions, was published at Frankfort, in 1567. There are no less than five other editions of this work published in the years 1574, 1579, 1580, 1584, and 1595 respectively, all bearing the title of Speculum Vitae Aulicae. De Admirabili Fallacia, and illustrated by the same admirable woodcuts by Virgilius Solis, and Jost Ammon. " - William J Thoms, History of Reynard the Fox, 1844 History of Reynard the Fox - "Reynard (German: Reineke) is the main character in a literary cycle of allegorical Dutch, English, French and German fables. Those stories are largely concerned with Reynard, an anthropomorphic red fox and trickster figure. His adventures usually involve him deceiving other anthropomorphic animals for his own advantage or trying to avoid retaliations from them. The figure of Reynard is thought to have originated in Lorraine folklore from where it spread to France, the Low Countries, and Germany. An extensive treatment of the character is the Old French Le Roman de Renart written by Pierre de Saint-Cloud around 1170, which sets the typical setting. " - Wikipedia About the Printer - The Printer&#146;s Mark of Fortune, and the colophon identify Nicolaus Basse as the printer. Basse is known for printing the first catalogue of the Frankfurt Book Fair. He was also considered a pirate, re-printing works that he did not have rights to. (Frank Baron, Faustus on Trail, 1992) Condition of the Book - 12 mo, measuring 14 x 9 x 4 cm. In parchment binding with the ties missing, may be contemporary. 3 binds, visible at the joints. Shelf wear, occasional cracks and scrapes. The front joint is cracked from the top to the first bind. At the front and the rear the pastedown/flyleaf is not cracked, although likely later. Manuscript title on spine (faded). No endpapers at the front, other than the free half of the flyleaf. One end-paper at the rear with contemporary manuscript annotations, and also the free flyleaf. 9 of the woodcut engravings have color added, mostly minor highlights to parts of the woodcut (the horns of a stag, for example). In the pictures posted I show the most colored example (of two men at a well). Light occasional damp stains present themselves throughout the text block, but it is not present everywhere. Worm holes present themselves throughout the text block, but they are not overly abundant. There is one section, from page 325 to 350, where the worm ate sideways approx. 7 cm; the worming never affects the integrity of the text block and you can always tell what the words are or should be. Also, occasional underlining and marginal annotations throughout, as well as page soiling (browning from use). Well used and loved as befitting a family classic. The structural integrity and readability is not compromised and it will be a book to enjoy for generations more. P. 120 has a 3 cm. tear. P. 153 is torn mid-page across the page. Collation- Blank flyleaf. A-1 to A-10 are the title page, introduction and a dedication. A11 is page 1. All pages present from page 1 until 465 (I paged through them all). 465 is a recto, 466 is nn, and a verso & the beginning of the index. X4 is the recto, and X4 - X11 is the index. X12 is the blank rear endpage. Blank flyleaf at rear. 907 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Andrea Alciati An incredible first edition of Alciati&#146;s &#145;Emblemata&#146;. This edition includes 211 woodcut-engraved devices. These illustrations helped inspire thousands of imitations throughout Europe on secular and religious themes. The commentaries on each emblem were written by French scholar Claude Mignault. Devices depict pastoral scenes, cathedrals, military, mythological creatures, and more. &#145;Emblematica&#146; provides important clues and shows - with brevity of style - concern for the eternal nature of man and human nature. Per Saunders in &#147;The 17th-century French Emblem,&#148; &#147;Alciato&#146;s emblem book went through a large number of transformations from the original very crude and simple form. Its early transformation into a work which was both aesthetically more pleasing and visually more accurate with a very different treatment of the original by Claude Mignault in 1584.&#148; Item number: #633 Price: $1500 ALCIATI, Andrea Emblemata Andreæ Alciati I.C. clariss. latinogallica, una cum succinctis argumentis : quibus emblematis cujusque sententia explicatur.

        Sicilia Sardina Nova Tabula

      Venezia 1584 - "Carta geografica della due isole maggiori, pubblicata in "La Geografia di Claudio Ptolemeo Alessandrino, Con alcuni commenti e aggiunte fattevi da Sebastiano Munstero Alamanno, Con le tavole non solamente antiche & moderne solite di stamparsi, ma altre nuove aggiuntevi di Meser Iacopo Gastaldo Piamontese cosmographo, ridotta in volgare Italiano da M. Pietro Andrea Mattiolo Senese medico Eccellentissimo " Venezia, 1548. La carta è la versione moderna della tavola pubblicata nella Geografia di Tolomeo curata da Giacomo Gastaldi, nel 1545. In questa versione, il profilo costiero è disegnato in base ai dati forniti dalle carte nautiche della fine del XV e della prima metà del XVI secolo. La toponomastica, risalente anch'essa alle carte nautiche, è limitata quasi esclusivamente alle zone costiere. La Sicilia conserva la forma tricuspidale, in cui però soltanto una delle tre cuspidi si trova in una posizione diversa da quella tradizionale tolemaica, mentre le altre sono ubicate all'incirca nello stesso punto; così pure la città di Palermo che mantiene le stesse coordinate. Incisione in rame, testo in volgare al verso, con una breve storia dellle due isole, in ottimo stato di conservazione." Nice example of Gastaldi's modern map of Sicily and Sardinia. Gastaldi's mapping of Sicily is of special note, as the map would unquestionably include the same information as contained in Gastaldi's Descrittione della Sicilia con le sue Isole ., first issued in 1545, which was Gastaldi's second earliest map. Giacomo Gastaldi is considered as the foremost Italian cartographer of the 16th century along with Paolo Forlani. From Piedmont, Gastaldi established his reputation in Venice and was cosmographer to the Republic of Venice. Gastaldi enjoyed a productive relationship with Giovanni Ramusio, Secretary of the Venice Senate, who used Gastaldi's maps for his Navigationi et Viaggi. This map is from Gastaldi's edition of Ptolemy, Ptolemeo. La Geografia., begun as early as 1542 and published in Venice in 1548. Collezione Spagnolo, p. 132, n. 21 Dimensioni 175 133mm

        Italiae Novissima Descriptio Auctore Iacobo Castaldo Pedemontano

      Anversa 1584 - Questa carta generale dell'Italia si basa, come indicato nel cartiglio con il titolo, sul lavoro di Giacomo Gastaldi, in particolare su "Il disegno della geografia moderna de tutta la provincia de la Italia", pubblicata dal Gastaldi nel 1561. Rispetto al modello, Ortelius inserì degli elementi decorativi; anch'essi però non sono originali, ma ricavati dalle raccolte di ornamentazioni e cartouches a stampa di Hans Vredeman De Vries (da cui sono tratti il cartiglio del titolo e la sfinge seduta sulla scala grafica di questa carta), di Frans Floris e di Benedetto Battini, tutte pubblicate ad Anversa tra il 1550 ed il 1560 circa. Esemplare tratto dall'edizione latina del 1592 del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum. Acquaforte, bella coloritura coeva, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Map of Italy based on Il disegno della geografia moderna de tutta la provincia de la Italia, by Giacomo Gastaldi, published in 1561.

        Orlando Furioso. Nuovamente adornato di figure di rame da Girolamo Porro.

      Venezia, Francesco de Franceschi, 1584. In-4ø; 20 cc., 654 pp., 16 cc., 1 c.b., 43 cc., 1 c.b. Importante legatura seicentesca in tutto marocchino oliva, tassello con titolo in oro, fregi floreali e filetti in oro al dorso, merletto interno e ai labbri in oro, doppio inquadramento di filetti e motivi floreali alla Du Seuil sui piatti, tagli dorati. L'opera Š illustrata da 51 incisioni in rame a piena pagina e da altre decorative che circondano gli "argomenti", iniziali xilografiche figurate. Difetto della carta al margine superiore della c2, qualche macchiolina in fine. Esemplare appartenuto al poeta spagnolo del Secolo d'Oro Don Francisco de Sandoval, originario di Palencia in Castiglia (firma di possesso al frontespizio e indicazione della citt... al verso). Ex libris del '900 al contropiatto anteriore (Ludovico de Gobbis). Lungo il testo alcuni passaggi sono anticamente censurati a penna a inchiostro bruno. Bell'esemplare. Prima edizione del poema con le magnifiche incisioni di Girolamo Porro, considerate le migliori illustrazioni che abbiano mai accompagnato un'edizione del "Furioso". L'esemplare Š poi di particolare rilevanza in quanto appartenuto al poeta spagnolo Don Francisco de Sandoval, nato a Palencia nel 1610 (cfr. S¡mon D¡az). "E' questa, a parer di molti, la pi-- sontuosa edizione del Furioso. Certo superba essa appare per le incisioni su rame a piena pagina del Porro e per quelle altrettanto leggiadre che inquadrano gli argomenti dei singoli canti. E' da notarsi che al canto 34 Š replicata la tavola in rame del canto 33" (Agnelli-Ravegnani). "Edition assez belle? elle est recherch‚e ... cause des notes qui l'accompagnent et des gravures dont elle est orn‚e" (Brunet). "Quanto ad illustrazioni la presente stampa sopravanza le antecedenti del Valgrisio e del Valvassori" (Gamba). Precedono e seguono il poema le annotazioni di Girolamo Ruscelli, la vita dell'autore di G.B. Pigna, le osservazioni sopra l'Ariosto di Alberto Lavezuola, la vita dell'autore descritta da Girolamo Garofalo, una allegoria universale sopra tutta l'opera dell'Ariosto fatta da Giuseppe Bononome, gli epiteti usati nel poema raccolti e disposti per alfabeto da Camillo Camilli. Agnelli-Ravegnani I, 156. Brunet I, 436. Gamba nø58. Per il possessore, Francisco de Sandoval, si veda: Don Francisco de Snadoval admirador e imitador de Gongora, vd. J.

Girolamo Mercuriale (1530-1606), einer der erfolgreichsten Mediziner seines Jahrhunderts, studierte in Bologna und Padua. Er folgte Kardinal Alexander Farnese nach Rom, wo er an der Universität lehrte, von 1569 bis 1587 lehrte er als Professor in Padua. 1573 wurde er zur Behandlung Kaiser Maximilians II. nach Wien berufen, als ausserordentliche Belohnung wurde er dafür in den Adelsstand erhoben. 1587 wechselte er an die Universität von Bologna, schliesslich holte ihn Ferdinand I., Grossherzog der Toskana, für ein Rekordsalär als Leibarzt und Professor an die Universität von Pisa. 1605 zog er sich in seinen Heimatort Forli zurück. Berühmt wurde er durch seine 1569 erschienene Studie "De arte gymnastica", der ersten geschichtlichen Darstellung des Sportes. - Die vorliegenden Schriften sind von grosser Originalität. "De morbus cutaneis" beschreibt erstmals eine Reihe von Hautkrankheiten, "De Decoration" war eine der wichtigsten Quellen für das 1597 erschienene grundlegende Werk von Gaspare Tagliacozzi über plastische Chirurgie, "De Morbis puerorum" war eine der ersten allein den Kinderkrankheiten gewidmete Monographie. Der Autor widmete den Text seinem Schüler Jan Hieronim Chrosciejowski, der die Vorlesungsskripte von Mercuriale annotierte. - Einer von Mercuriales vielen Schülern war der Schweizer Botaniker Caspar Bauhin. - Ohne den fliegenden Vorsatz. Titel mit altem Besitzerstempel. Einige Bögen gebräunt. 1. Titel mit wenigen Randanstreichungen. - Annähernd fleckenloses, sehr breitrandiges Exemplar.
