Aretino, Pietro.
8vo. 3 pts. in 1 vol. (12), 228, (8), 401, (1), 142 pp., final blank f. With woodcut in the text (pt. 3, p. 107). 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. Molza). Con la diceria de nasi". - Collected edition of the Dialogues of Pietro Aretino (1492-1556), famous Italian satirist and protégé of Giovanni de'Medici, whose licentious and burlesque works earned him a great notoriety. All the author's works were put on the Roman Index in 1558. In th … [Click Below for Full Description]

PEUCER, Kaspar
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]

Light age browning, t.p. slightly dusty and repaired at head with some loss to ornament, repairs to margins of a few ll. throughout with no loss to text, occasional light foxing, a good, clean copy in early c19 crushed morocco, covers gilt-stamped with arms of the Society of Writers to the Signet within panel triple-ruled in gilt with corner flourishes, spine in gilt with five raised bands, a.e.g. FIRST AND ONLY EARLY EDITION of the definitive treatise denying the existence of witches, to such an extent that it is also considered the major source for early attitudes toward, and rituals of, witchcraft, citing no less than 212 authors as well as examples from the courts of law in England. 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]

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.

Powel, Caradoc of Llancarvan, David
David Powel, 1584, Hardcover, Book Condition: Good Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket, 1584 David Powel Edition. A two-volume set formerly belonging to Llewelyn Lloyd of Caerwys, and bearing an introduction by David Powel dated 1584. Both volumes have been subject to scholarly editing and restoration throughout (c. 1700), with some missing/damaged sections hand-written and inserted, various scattered annotations in ink and pencil, and hand-written appendices, indeces, and other inserts. The handwritten note, 'Wynne's Wales' on both front covers, appears to be either erroneous or pre-emptive on the part of the scholar; Wynne's edition is published in 1697, whilst this edition is dated 1584 and typeset differently (see images). No preface, and no notes regarding reprinting (as seen throughout the 1697 edition) support the identification. Covers are very worn, with front of vol. 2 loose, overall browned and grubby but largely intact. Contents are mostly very well-preserved, with printed text remaining clear and readable throughout apart from the short missing sections transcribed by hand and inserted.

The books in this collection appeared in a very disordered way across several countries and there were numerous successive editions within the author's lifetime. This cacophony of published editions led the publisher Francesco de Franceschi to gather the first five books into one edition, followed by the Extraordinary Book and Book VII. Book VI was not included since it remained unpublished until the middle of the 20th century and only appeared for the first time in 1966 in Munich. Sebastiano Serlio (1475-circa 1554) was a contemporary of such famous artists as Titian and Pietro Aretino, whom he often saw in Venice in the 1530s.

The beginning of part 2 includes an important new addition: Contarini's "De bello Turcico", with the description of the Battle of Lepanto. - Binding rubbed; large defects to spine. Interior somewhat browned as common with occasional insignificant waterstains to margins.

Antwerp C. Plantin 1584 - Hand-coloured double-page engraved map, Latin text on verso. Dimensions: 400 × 545 mm. (15.75 × 21.5 inches). The first state of the first European printed map of China and one of the most decorative - a beautiful example. Oriented with north to the right, there are cartouches for the title, scale and privilege; on the map are elephants, Tartar tents and land-yachts. Japan has an extra landmass to the east, with its further reaches hidden by the scale cartouche. The Philippines appear, but with little accuracy or detail; they were not even named until the second state (c.1588).
