apud Floravantem a Prato, 1584. Cm. 21, pp (64) 700 (2). Affascinante legatura coeva in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso, ripetuti al taglio di piede. Antiche note manoscritte di possesso.

Quest'opera è il suo principale lavoro di diritto canonico. Cfr. Iccu; non in Sapori..

OVIDIUS NASO, Publius.
Venice: Bernardo Giunta, 1584. First Edition illustrated with engravings by Venetian publisher and printmaker, Giacomo Franco [1550-1620], of one of the most influential works in the history of Western literature. This is the first of two 1584 editions printed by Giunta, with the dedication on leaf +2r beginning 'Le Metamofosi d'Ovidio...'. Giovanni Andrea dell'Anguillara's Italian translation in ottava rima first appeared in 1561. The commentary is by Giuseppe Dondi dall'Orologio and Francesco Turchi. The plates depict multiple scenes from each book, with the figures labelled. A beautifully printed and illustrated edition: "la plus recherchée des anciennes éditions de cette traduction, devenue classique en Italie." (Brunet) Ovid's long poem written in hexameters is a collection of mythological and legendary stories in which metamorphosis (transformation) plays some part. "In many of the stories, mythical characters are used to illustrate examples of obedience or disobedience toward the gods, and for their actions are either rewarded or punished by a final transformation into some animal, vegetable, or astronomical form...By his genius for narrative and vivid description, Ovid gave to scores of Greek legends, some of them little known before, their definitive form for subsequent generations. No single work of literature has done more to transmit the riches of the Greek imagination to posterity. " (Encyc. Britannica online) Authors such as Dante, Boccaccio, Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, Milton, Pope, and Goethe, all drew inspiration from Ovid, and stories from the Metamorph … [Click Below for Full Description]

Milano, Pontio, 1584. In-4 (20,4 x 14,5 cm.). Piena pelle del '700, dorso con fregi oro e tassello; minime tracce d'uso. Ritratto n.t. (40), 698 (mal num. 700), (2) + (4) pp.; piccola mancanza all'angolo sup. della carte B1, uno strappo riparato e qualche macchiolina, tuttavia buon esemplare con alcune antiche note di proprietà nei margini del frontespizio, una datata 1584, e con le rarissime 4 pp. aggiunte in fine. Assai rara prima tiratura della prima edizione ed uno dei rarissimi esemplari con le 4 pagine aggiunte in fine con il capitolo "Dell'Arte di allungare la vista quanto si vuole, & parimenti del far gl'apparati delle scene co'l quadro sopra detto Geometrico." Lomazzo s'accorse solo a stampa avvenuta e dopo la vendita della maggior parte degli esemplari che il capitolo mancava per una svista del tipografo e lo fece aggiungere alle poche copie rimaste. Cf. Gamba 1485 e Cicognara che al n.160 descrive un'esemplare con il capitolo aggiunto in manoscritto: «In alcuni rarissimi esemplari trovasi un foglietto con un Capitolo in più...», mentre al n.161 ne descrive uno completo: «esemplare rarissimo e prezioso... non conosciamo simile esemplare che nella Smithiana». L'opera è «il più grande e più ampio trattato del manierismo, la sua vera Bibbia...» (Schlosser 395 s., descrivendone dettagliatamente il contenuto). BL STC 391.

Wants the blanks at the beginning and end of pt. 2. 18th-century calf, covers ruled in gilt; title to prettily gilt spine; leading edges and inner dentelle gilt; marbled endpapers. All edges red. Second reprint (printed for the original publisher) of the first collected edition of Aretino's famous 'Conversations', printed by John Wolfe in London in 1584. According to Brunet, there are, including the original, four different editions (of which ours is the second) misleadingly bearing the date of 1584 on their titles, all recorded in a very small number and "entre lesquelles, jusqu'ici, il y a eu peu de différence pour le prix" (Brunet). Only through Woodfield's research did a distinction and localisation of the various reprints become possible, but the Nordmann copy with the same imprint as ours is still catalogued as "extrement rare [...] comme les 3 autres" (Bibliothèque érotique Gérard Nordmann. Christie's Paris, 27. IV. 2006, lot 34 [Est. EUR 20,000-30,000], but unsold). - Both the first and second part consist of three 'giornate', whereas the third part bears the title: "Commento di Ser Agretso da Ficarvolo (= Annibale Caro), sopra la prima ficata del Padre Sicco (= F.M.

par Barthelemi Honarati, au Vaze d'or, 1584. 4to. pp. [xxii] 653 [xxvii] lacking last blank. Roman and italic, woodcut initials, head- and tail-pieces, sidenotes, t.p. with printer's device of water vessel in architectural border flanked by cherubs. Crossed out C17 MS ex-libris 'De Raelet?' on t.p., C18 ownership marks on fly of 'Pierre Duges?' with shelf mark in MS on pastedown. Light age yellowing, faint dampstaining to margin of first 2 and last gathering. A clean and well-margined copy in slightly later calf, panels double gilt on covers, spine with four raised bands, floral decoration gilt-stamped in compartments, a bit worn, upper board scratched. FIRST FRENCH EDITION of Peucer's encyclopaedic work on divination; "it seems to have been the most influential of his numerous writings which were concerned with the varied fields of medicine, astronomy, mathematics, natural history, and psychology", (Thorndike VI p. 493). On the whole the work approves of divination in natural circumstances - reading dreams, for instance, or the stars, but agrees with the Bible in condemning certain branches of divination related to demons and witchcraft. Peucer's bias is unflinchingly Protestant, denying the possibility of Miracles, and he attributing the successfulness of relics and invocations of saints to demons rather than divinity. "After discussing divination in general, he turns to oracles and theomancy, then to magic - which he thus incorrectly implies is a variety of divination, whereas the opposite is true - then to divination from entrails, to augury and aruspicina, to lot-casti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Scot is as sharp as he is humane in his attack on "witchmongers" who seek "to pursue the poore, to accuse the simple, and to kill the innocent", pointing out how unreasonable it is to accuse vulnerable persons of having "power which onelie apperteineth to God". The first four books list the procedures of identifying witches and using torture to procure confession, found in the Malleus Malificarum as well as Jean Bodin's work. Scot quotes heavily form his sources, and refutes them only after. He suggests to his readers that they skip the next book, which discusses in detail the many "filthie … [Click Below for Full Description]

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): " … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Seven Sages of Rome).
Hugues Gazeau, 1584. Early, uncommon edition of this French adaptation of The Seven Sages, in which Prince Erastus is persecuted by his lustful, jealous stepmother Aphrodisia -- a framing device for a series of cautionary tales told to the Emperor by the stepmother, the prince's wise tutors, and finally the prince himself. Of Eastern (possibly Persian) origin ca. the 5th century b.c., the work spread throughout Europe in a variety of forms and first appeared in this guise in 1564, translated from an Italian rendition. All of the early printings thus are now rare, with WorldCat locating => only one U.S. institutional holding of the present Gazeau edition. Binding: Red crushed morocco framed and panelled in blind double fillets with gilt-tooled corner fleurons, spine with raised bands, gilt-stamped title and publication information, and gilt-tooled strawberry leaf decorations in compartments; turn-ins with gilt compound roll, all edges gilt. => Signed binding by Capé, name camouflaged in lower front turn-in. Provenance: Front free endpaper with ex libris of Panof Grafsos Skinos, with shelving number; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.
