CARCANO LEONE, Giovanni Battista.
Mediolani [Milan]: Ex typographia Michaelis Tini. Ad instantiam Petri Tini. FIRST EDITION of Carcano's report on his post-mortem of Cardinal Carlo Borromeo, who became Archbishop of Milan in 1564 and was beatified in 1610. He died on 4th November 1584 at the age of 46 having fallen ill with a condition described vaguely as "intermittent fever and ague" during his annual retreat at Monte Varallo. His body was extremely emaciated. "The almost total absence of abdominal fat...was vivid confirmation of the severity of Borromeo's fasts. Indeed, his austerity may have contributed to his premature death... But it is clear that Carcano Leone's subsequent fame as the dissector of Carlo Borromeo served to enhance his academic status" (Siraisi, Medicine and the Italian universities 1250-1600). That Carcano was selected to perform the post-mortem in preference to other more highly placed anatomists shows the high regard in which he was held (see Scarpa, below, p. 62). Carcano studied anatomy under the guidance of his brother, who was a pupil of Vesalius. Later he was a pupil of Falloppio at Padua, and made such progress that Falloppio nominated him as his successor, but he became professor of anatomy at Pavia. He also published a book on anatomy in 1574, a book on head wounds in 1584, and a short work on his public dissection in Pavia in 1585, an event which attracted an unprecedented throng of Milanese nobles and high Spanish officials. All his works are rare; for example the Wellcome catalogue lists only one and Durling none at all. EDIT16 locates 6 copies in Italy. With this copy … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dillinger Druck - (Pontanus, Jacobus),
(in fine: Dilingae [Dillingen] Excudebat Ioannes Mayer) 1584. 20 x 16 cm. [1] Bl., 45 S. Titelblatt mit Holzschnitt-Marke. Modernes Halbpergament unter Verwendung von älterer Papiermakulatur. Mäßig gebräunt, vereinzelt etwas fleckig. Letztes Blatt mit Resten eines Blattweisers. VD16 ZV 5001. OCLC 254648464. Lagenkollation A-F4. Text innerhalb einer (wiederholten) vierseitigen gedruckten Bordüre. Mit zahlreichen Holzschnitt-Initialen. Sehr seltene Schrift des berühmten Jesuiten Jacobus Pontanus (eigentlich Spanmüller, 1542 - 1626), von zahlreichen Autoren als der beste Latinist der Gesellschaft bezeichnet. "Nach dem Studium an den Jesuitenkollegien in Prag und Ingolstadt lehrte P. am Dillinger Kolleg 1570-79 die alten Sprachen und Rhetorik. Sein Entschluß, als 'Grammaticus' die aktive Beherrschung der lat. Sprache und vielseitige Kenntnisse der griech.-röm. Kulturgeschichte und Dichtung zu lehren, anstatt zum Theologie-Professor aufzusteigen, beruhte auf der humanistischen Überzeugung, daß rhetorische Gewandtheit, breite Literaturkenntnisse und eine Fülle von Sachwissen für viele Berufe qualifizierten und die moralische Persönlichkeit festigten."

Contemporary calf, gilt title to spine (19th-century repair preserving the original spine). Modern cloth box. Provenance: early manuscript annotations – John Shaw Darlington (inscription to fly leaf). [ASTLEY, John (c.1507-1596).] The Art of Riding set foorth in a breefe treatise. London: Henry Denham, 1584. Woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. [bound with:] CORTE, Claudio. The Art of Riding, translated by Thomas Bedingfield. London: Henry Denham, 1584. Woodcut illustrations in the text, 4 full-page, head- and tailpieces and initials. 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 "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.

Ariost, Ludovico.
Venice, Franceschi, 1584. 2 parts in 1 volume. 27 : 18,5 cm. 17 leaves, 654 pages, 16 leaves, 1 blanc leaf; 44 numbered leaves, with 3 engraved title-pages, 51 engraved plates by Girolamo Porroand 51 engraved vignettes Contemporary calf, spine richly gilt, back label. Beautiful illustrated edition of Ariosto's epic romance, which had great influence all over Europe and was translated in many languages. The poem tells of Orlando's love for the pagan princess Angelica, but Ariosto's extravagant narrative transverses the world and beyond, including a trip to the moon to recover Orlando's lost wits. The story takes its setting from old romances of Charlemagne: the name of Orlando is a version of Roland, who appears in a very different setting in, for example, 'The Song of Roland' from the twelfth century. Aristo's poem had also great influence in England, for example on 'Spensers, The Faerie Queene'. - This copy with the observations of Alberto Lavezvola. - Title-page mounted, some leaves a bit wrikled; binding partly rubbed, left hinghe a bit demaged. Otherwise a fine copy with the engravings mostly in strong impressions. - Adams A 1677. Contemporary calf, spine richly gilt, back label. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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."

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]

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.

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]
