        vnderricht wider die Pestilentz.

      Augsburg, o. Dr. (Valentin Schönig), "den 10. Septembris, Anno", 1585. Format: Kl.-4°.. [8] S.. Mit großer Holzschnitt-Titelarabeske.. Moderner Pappband in Pergamentstil minimal abgegriffen.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe. Nicht nur Gebete, sondern Hygiene bewahrt vor der Pest*** Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses außergewöhnlich seltenen Berichts über die große Pest am Ende des 16. Jahrhunderts. Über das VD16-Besitzstandsverzeichnis sind lediglich drei Exemplare nachweisbar, in München, Wien und Budapest. Die Zuweisung an den Augsburger Drucker Valentin Schönig konnte erst neuerdings von Herrn Ulrich Kopp in Wolfenbüttel vorgenommen werden. Die anonyme Pestschrift ist von besonderem Interesse, da sie nicht - wie in der Zeit meist üblich - eine theologische Rechtfertigung der Krankheit und eine Anleitung zum Gebet um Linderung und Abklingen der Epidemie enthält. Vielmehr handelt es sich um einen Aufruf zu Sauberkeit, Hygiene und Vermeidung der Ansteckung, die der anonyme Autor der Frömmelei ganz bewusst gegenüber stellt, was einer kleinen aufklärerischen Sensation gleichkommt, die allerdings - das zeigt die Geschichte - wenig Gehör fand: "Derweil alle Krankheiten auß undanckbarkeit und ungehorsame gegen Gott dem Herren Christo herkommen, und der Tod, so darauff volget, der Sünden Sold ist: So wird in diesen schweren läuffen, dem Menschen nichts bessers und hilflichers zur erhaltung der gesundheit und des lebens sein, dann besserung und rechtschaffne Buß, sampt warem glauben, dadurch man zu Gott unserm güttigen Vatter betten, und in umb seinen schirm und täglichen segen anruffen kann, und dann also mit gutem auffmercken, und volgenden mitteln sich der Pestilentz, und dergleichenschweren gifftigen kranckheiten, erwehren. Und so dann nyemands on den Lufft leben mag: Ist erstlich hoch von nötten, das derselbig rain und sauber gehalten werde. Derhalben soll alles kod, unflat, faul, und stinckende ding, auß Hauß unnd Hoff, auch ab den Gassen geraumt werden, unnd sovil möglich, des Menschen wonung und Zimmer nit nach bey Misthauffen, Schwindgruben, haimlichen gemächern, oder anderen unrainern unnd ubelschmeckenden Wassern oder dergleichen, bevor Säwstellen, sein " Es folgen zahlreiche Anweisungen zur Lüftung, Ausräucherung, Luftverbesserung mit ätherischen Essenzen, weiterhin zur Aufnahme reiner, unverdorbener Nahrung, zum Umgang mit eigenen Fäkalien usw. Der Autor gibt einen Wochenplan zur Einnahme von Medikamenten und Verhaltensregeln vor, beschreibt die gefährlichen Symptome, wie man die Pestbeulen behandelt und vieles mehr: "Wo man nun auff solliches ein Beülen, widergendten, Apostem oder schwarze Blatter befindet, es sey am Leib wo es wolle, alßdann mag man (wer starck an krefften oder Blutrech ist) die nechsten Ader darbei, doch vom leib her außwertz lassen ". Auch soll gesund gegessen, aber kein Alkohol getrunken werden: "Uber solliches alles, gehört erst ein gute ordnung mit essen unnd trincken zu dieser kranckheit, doch gar nit Wein vor dreyen Wochen zutrincken, sondern Gerstenwasser, und je zucker Rosat oder Margrantensafft, oder Erbsichsafft darinnen anzweret, oder Mandelmilch damit gemacht und insonderheit der saur Citron oder Limonisafft davon soll man all Abendt und Moprgen etwas nemmen.". Minimale Fingerfleckchen, winziger Eckausriss und kleiner Temoin-Ausriss, sonst aber sauber und bemerkenswert wohlerhalten, breitrandig und schön. VD16 K 2790.

        Les Oeuvres de Rémy Belleau

      Our copy meets the first volume of the second collective edition (1585) at the second volume of the first (1578).The first volume contains five books of the poet and the Loves eschanges new gemstone, the Speech from the truth taken from Ecclesiastes, sacred Églogues taken from the Song of Songs, the two days of La Bergerie and celestial Appearances of Aral, a Greek poet (or 198 pieces, encrypted streaming, the text follows the 1578 edition). The second volume contains the Anacreon, various poems (Small inventions, Sonnets, Speech, odes, songs, lamentations, Cartel, epigrams, epitaphs), the comedy The Known and the Tomb of Remy Belleau.XX Binders full red morocco signed Huser, Jansenist back with five nerves, double nets gilded on the cuts and caps, wide gold lace framing of paper contreplats to the tank, all edges gilt. Very nice copy.Remy Belleau quickly joined the college Coqueret alongside Ronsard, Du Bellay, Baïf, then Pleïade in 1554. He published in 1556 his translation of the Odes of Anacreon, who had considerable success with its lightness and its largest accuracy. He was the first translator of the works of Sappho. His Precious stones are something new, combining the symbolism of stones and scientific knowledge. The Sheepfold, pastoral poem evoking Italian poetry, mixing poetry and narrative prose, was also crowned with great success in his time. Belleau was above all a great admirer and connoisseur of Greek poets where he drew his simple and graceful, without affectation. It remains the most famous poet of Pleïade after Ronsard and Du Bellay. He is also very present in the editions of Ronsard. Gilles Gilles A Paris 1585 2 vol. petit in-12 (7,5x13cm) relié

      Legatura in piena pergamena coeva, con al dorso restauro integrativo e titolo manoscritto da antica mano, sbiadito; ex - libris Piergiorgio Borio. [8] pp., 276, [4] (con antiporta figurato). Nota di possesso al verso della carta di guardia anteriore; esemplare dedicato al sig. Francesco Galeazzo Pinelli duca dell'Acerenza e Marchese di Galatone da Giovanne Germano. Rara edizione italiana (la prima fu del 1585) di questo celebre trattato di oftalmologia redatto dal medico e anatomista francese Du Laurens, autore di una delle anatomie più note e diffuse del suo tempo, l?"Historia Anatomica" (1600). L'opera in esame è un trattato sulla visione, la vista, la depressione e la vecchiaia. Destinata a un pubblico laico, il testo venne pubblicato in oltre venti edizioni con traduzioni in inglese, tedesco, latino e italiano. L'opera è suddivisa in quattro Discorsi: vista, malinconia, reumatismi e vecchiaia. La popolarità del testo, in particolare la trattazione sulla malinconia e l'invecchiamento, giocò un ruolo importante nel plasmare concetti rinascimentali su follia, malinconia e vecchiaia; interessante, inoltre, la correlazione delle teorie su questi temi di Du Laurens con le opere di Shakespeare. Esemplare con all'angolo inferiore esterno delle prime 6 carte restauro integrativo a causa di rosicatura, a scemare; diverse pagine in lieve e uniforme ossidazione, altrimenti esemplare fresco e marginoso.

        [Hebrew: GanÂ? Eden]. Hortvs Eden. Grammatica lingvae sanctae.... Secunda aeditio

      Venice: 1585. 8vo (168 x 110 mm). [2], 102 ff. Hebrew, roman and italic types. Folding letterpress table (a syllabary). Title within type ornament border, printerÂ?s device of three small woodcut crowns. Contemporary limp vellum, ms. title on upper edges (restored patch on lower cover, a few other small restorations). Provenance: Domenicus Masseus, contemporary signature (ex libris Dominici Massei).*** A native of Brescia, very likely of Jewish origin (Marini was a common Jewish name), Marco Marini entered the Augustinian monastery of San Salvatore at Venice at a young age. His knowledge of Hebrew and skill as a Biblical scholar won him a post as translator for the Republic of Venice, and led to his summons to Rome by Pope Gregory XIII to direct the censorship of Hebrew books. Marini appeared in a 1571 list of clerical experts who assisted the Venetian Holy Office in enforcing the Index of Prohibited Books and was directly involved in the destruction of Hebrew books: In 1568, the Venetian authorities "ordered the destruction or correction of thousands of copies of recent [Hebrew] publications and fined those held responsible. The tribunal began by noting that various Jews of the city, both `foreigners' and `Levantines,' had published Hebrew books `almost all incorrect and unexpurgated. They had done this without a governmental imprimaturÂ? The tribunal further noted that two local priests, experts in Hebrew, Fra Marco [Marini] and Fra Paulo of the Augustinian monastery of San Salvatore, had confirmed that the Hebrew titles had not been expurgatedÂ?" (Paul Grendler, "The Destruction of Hebrew Books in Venice, 1568," Proceedings of the American Academy for Jewish Research 45(1978), p. 111, noting in footnote 29 that this was "more than likely Fra Marco Marini da Brescia, Hebraist and biblical scholar") . Printers and publishers of the offending books -- including the Giovanni di Gara who printed this edition -- were fined large sums and many books were destroyed Â? but others were allowed to be shipped to buyers in Poland and Germany (Grendler, p. 114)! Marini's Hebrew grammar was first published in Basel by Froben in 1580 under the title Grammatica Linguae Sanctae. In 1593 Marini published a Hebrew dictionary (Arca Noe, Thesaurus Linguae sanctae novus, again printed by di Gara), which included all or most of the present text. Both the 1580 edition and the 1593 Arca Noe are very rare, with no copies in the US. Four or five copies of the present edition are held by American libraries.

        Chirurgia magna... nunc... restituta a Laurentio Jouberto.

      Lyon, Tinghus, 1585.. (23,5 x 18 cm). 601 (richtig 595), 75 (81 (2w)) S. Mit zahlreichen Textholzschnitten. Dekorativer blindgeprägter Schweinslederband der Zeit über Holzdeckel mit Rollen- und Plattenstempeln, datiert "AID 1585".. Erste von Joubert in lateinischer Sprache herausgegebenen und kommentierten Ausgabe. "His best known works were his Latin edition of Guy's surgery..." (Heirs 109). - "Although Guy's notable treatise was republished innumerable times, fifteenth century editions are now exceedingly rare and those of the sixteenth century are difficult to find" (Heirs 108). "Guy de Chauliac was the most eminent surgeon of his time; his authority remained for some 200 years. He distinguished the various kinds of hernia from varicocele, hydrocele, and sarcocele, and described an operation for the radical cure of hernia. The book, which was originally written about 1363, includes Guy's views on fractures, and gives an excellent summary of the dentistry of that period. It is the greatest surgical text of the time. The first edition is the first important medical book printed in French" (G/M). - "Joubert, der als ein sehr bedeutender interner Arzt bekannt war, hat auch um die Chirurgie sich dadurch verdient gemacht, dass er von der seit langer Zeit als klassisch anerkannten, 1363 verfassten 'Chirurgia magna' des Guy de Chauliac, die seit 1478 in einer Reihe von lateinischen und französischen Ausgaben erschienen war, 1579 und 1580 eine neue und zeitgemässe französische sowohl als lateinische Ausgabe veranstaltete und dazu Anmerkungen sowie eine Interpretation der dunklen Ausdrücke verfasste, die indessen erst nach seinem Tode der... lateinischen Ausgabe (1585) beigegeben wurden" (Gurlt). - Die Holzschnitte zeigen zahlreiche chirurgische Instrumente. - Stellenweise papierbedingt gering gebräunt. Vorsätze erneuert. Einband leicht fleckig und bestoßen. Insgesamt schönes und gut erhaltenes Exemplar. - Hirsch/H. I, 894; Gurlt II, 79 und 794; vgl.

        [Hebrew: Gan’ Eden]. Hortvs Eden. Grammatica lingvae sanctae.... Secunda aeditio

      Venice: 1585. 8vo (168 x 110 mm). [2], 102 ff. Hebrew, roman and italic types. Folding letterpress table (a syllabary). Title within type ornament border, printer?'s device of three small woodcut crowns. Contemporary limp vellum, ms. title on upper edges (restored patch on lower cover, a few other small restorations). Provenance: Domenicus Masseus, contemporary signature (ex libris Dominici Massei).*** A native of Brescia, very likely of Jewish origin (Marini was a common Jewish name), Marco Marini entered the Augustinian monastery of San Salvatore at Venice at a young age. His knowledge of Hebrew and skill as a Biblical scholar won him a post as translator for the Republic of Venice, and led to his summons to Rome by Pope Gregory XIII to direct the censorship of Hebrew books. Marini appeared in a 1571 list of clerical experts who assisted the Venetian Holy Office in enforcing the Index of Prohibited Books and was directly involved in the destruction of Hebrew books: In 1568, the Venetian authorities "ordered the destruction or correction of thousands of copies of recent [Hebrew] publications and fined those held responsible. The tribunal began by noting that various Jews of the city, both `foreigners' and `Levantines,' had published Hebrew books `almost all incorrect and unexpurgated. They had done this without a governmental imprimatur… The tribunal further noted that two local priests, experts in Hebrew, Fra Marco [Marini] and Fra Paulo of the Augustinian monastery of San Salvatore, had confirmed that the Hebrew titles had not been expurgated…" (Paul Grendler, "The Destruction of Hebrew Books in Venice, 1568," Proceedings of the American Academy for Jewish Research 45(1978), p. 111, noting in footnote 29 that this was "more than likely Fra Marco Marini da Brescia, Hebraist and biblical scholar") . Printers and publishers of the offending books -- including the Giovanni di Gara who printed this edition -- were fined large sums and many books were destroyed ?- but others were allowed to be shipped to buyers in Poland and Germany (Grendler, p. 114)! Marini's Hebrew grammar was first published in Basel by Froben in 1580 under the title Grammatica Linguae Sanctae. In 1593 Marini published a Hebrew dictionary (Arca Noe, Thesaurus Linguae sanctae novus, again printed by di Gara), which included all or most of the present text. Both the 1580 edition and the 1593 Arca Noe are very rare, with no copies in the US. Four or five copies of the present edition are held by American libraries.

        APOLOGIA DEL SIG. TORQUATO TASSO IN DIFESA DELLA SUA GIERUSALEMME LIBERATA. Con alcune altre Opere, parte in accusa, parte in difesa dell'Orlando furioso dell'Ariosto, della Gierusalemme istessa, e dell'Amadigi del Tasso Padre. I titoli tutti si leggono nella seguente facciata. In Ferrara, appresso Giulio Cesare Cagnacini, et Fratelli, 1585.

      Prima edizione. Opera divisa in due parti, dedicata a Ferrante Gonzaga. Cm.15,2x9,4. Pg.(16), (112), (228), tutte non numerate. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena molle con titoli manoscritti al dorso. Minima mancanza al capitello superiore. Restauro cartaceo al margine esterno della seconda carta. Tagli spruzzati. 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.

        CREMONA FEDELISSIMA CITTA' ET NOBILISSIMA COLONIA DE ROMANI Rappresentata in disegno col suo contado, et illustrata d&#39;una breve historia delle cose piu&#39; notabili appartenenti ad essa, et de i ritratti naturali de Duchi, et Duchesse di Milano, e compendio delle lor vite.

      In Cremona, in Casa dell'Auttore, 1585. In-folio (mm. 380x245), mz. pergam. antica (risg. rifatti), tit. oro su tassello al dorso, tagli azzurri, cc.nn. 4, pp. 88,LXXVIII, c.b. 1, poi la numeraz. riprende con i numeri arabi 89-119, cc.nn. 13 (Indici). Privo della carta di ?"Errata?", con la dichiarazione che Agostino Carracci intagliò i ritratti, perchè questo esempl. è in "prima tiratura". Nell'opera, considerata uno dei più bei libri illustrati del Rinascimento, figurano: superbo frontespizio allegorico - al suo verso grande tav. con il ritratto di Filippo II (in medaglione senza berretto) e 55 piccoli scudi (di cui 11 vuoti) con le armi degli Stati appartenenti alla corona di Spagna - altra grande tav. al verso della seconda carta con l'apoteosi di Cremona - bellissimo ritratto di Antonio Campo "Pittore e Cavaliere Cremonese" sulla IV carta - tavola con l'uscita del Carroccio dalla porta di Cremona (a p. 13) - 9 ritratti di vescovi o di altri personaggi illustri, più 24 ritratti dei duchi e duchesse di Milano (uno dei quali vuoto, al libro IV, p. 105), tutti in ovale e che occupano mezza pagina - 27 magnifici grandi capilettera inc. su legno - 4 tavv. f.t. e precisamente: 1, più volte ripieg., con la pianta di Cremona; 1 a doppia pag. con la carta del Contado e Diocesi di Cremona; 2 tavv. con (al recto e verso): il Battistero e sua pianta, il Duomo (a doppia pag.), la famosa torre e sua pianta, inc. in rame da Davide da Lodi - al fine marca tipogr. degli stampatori, Hippolito Tromba e Hercoliano Bartoli - tutte le pagg. di testo sono racchiuse in una bella cornice. L'opera è divisa in quattro libri, dei quali i primi tre riguardano la storia di Cremona dalla fondazione al 1585 e l'ultimo "i veri Ritratti de' Duchi e Duchesse di Milano con una breve narratione delle lor vite". "Edizione originale". Il ns. esemplare è di "prima tiratura" in quanto: la Dedicatoria ai Signori Consiglieri è di 56 righe anziché 61 come nelle tirat. seguenti; i due ritratti di Filippo II (uno al verso della I carta e uno a pag. 112) sono senza berretto; la pianta di Cremona è datata 1582 (anzichè 1583 come nel secondo stato). Cfr. Brunet,I,1526: "Edition originale et fort rare d'un ouvrage estimé?" - Cat. Hoepli,587: "Il Vidoni (Storia della Pittura Cremonese, p. 87) avverte che il ritratto di Ezzelino da Romano a pag. 53 non fu inciso dal Carracci; comunque è in legno, mentre tutti gli altri sono in rame. Probabilmente l'opera fu iniziata nel 1583 come si legge al basso del frontesp. dove la data fu corretta a mano - Cicognara,3977 - Predari, p. 127 la indica come stampata nel 1584 - Graesse,II,30 - Choix de l'Olschki,IV,4257: "Toutes les figures ont été bien gravées par Agostino Carracci d'après les dessins de Campo. Edition fort bien imprimée, rare et recherchée". Prime 4 cc. sapientemente restaurate; la pianta della città di Cremona con fiorit., altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

        Historia de las cosas mas notables, ritos y costvmbres, del gran Reyno dela China ... con un Itinerario del nueuo Mundo

      Rome: Bartholome Grassi, en la Stampa de Vicentio Accolti, 1585. Small octavo, without the blank leaf at end of preliminaries; some light dampstaining, one page (352) poorly inked by printer with beginning of most lines supplied in contemporary pen & ink, but a very good copy in nineteenth-century quarter vellum and pebbled paper boards, flat spine gilt with coronets at head and tail of spine and ownership stamp of the Conde de Casa Rojas. the East Indies and Southeast Asia. The very rare first edition of the most important early history of China and a significant early work on commodities and colonial activities in the East Indies as well as the West Indies and South America.This was &#39;the most influential and detailed work on China prepared in the sixteenth century… Before the end of the century Mendoza&#39;s compendium had been translated into most European languages and had become one of the best-sellers of its day. Its popularity may be accounted for in part by the great and unsatisfied demand which existed everywhere in Europe for a comprehensive and authoritative survey of China in the vernacular languages… In fact, the authority of Mendoza&#39;s book was so great that it became the point of departure and the basis of comparison for all subsequent European works on China written before the eighteenth century…&#39; (Lach, I, pp. 743-4). The bibliographer Brunet claims that this was the first book printed in Europe to contain Chinese characters (two appear on p. 104).Mendoza&#39;s book was also important for its information on the East Indies and Southeast Asia. Lach identifies only three major sources for this early period: the letters of the Jesuit missionaries in the far east, narratives by commercial travellers from Europe, and &#39;the accounts of two Spaniards who obtained their information about the East by way of the Philippines and Mexico… The two Spanish books… are the work of religious writers with experience in America and hence are only collaterally concerned with southeast Asia. The first of these was from the pen of the Augustinian Friar, Juan González de Mendoza [the second was Acosta&#39;s: see following catalogue entry]… While this famous book deals primarily with China, as the title indicates, it also includes in its last chapters some interesting materials on Malacca, Indochina, and the Philippines. Mendoza depends for these comments on the experiences there in about 1579 of Martin Ignatius de Loyola, a relative of the first Jesuit general and a Franciscan missionary himself…&#39;.The important final part, the Itinerario del Nuevo Mundo, describes the voyage from Spain to China, via the Canary Islands, Santo Domingo, Mexico, New Mexico, Acapulco, the Ladrones, and the Philippines. Mention is made of commodities to be had in the various places, the condition of the peoples met with, and a wide variety of other useful information. Japan, Cochin China, Malaya, and India are then described in similar fashion - as Parker remarks (p. 131) the book was in short &#39;an advertisement of nearly all of the Spanish and Portuguese overseas connections&#39;.The book includes a notice of Antonio de Espejo and his exploration of New Mexico in 1583 - the first such notice of the 1583 expedition to appear in print (a fuller account appeared in a subsequent edition of Mendoza&#39;s book). There is also material on Cuba, Santo Domingo, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Central America, and the Philippines. Topics of special interest are natural history, Indian landholding practices, and Spanish cultural developments. Ortelius states in his atlas that he obtained more information about America from this work than from any other single source.

Il trattato era apparso nell'originale lingua francese nel 1575, ed ebbe un certo successo con alcune ristampe anche della presente traduzione. L'opera, divisa in dodici libri, si occupa essenzialmente di questioni storiche attraverso il metodo delle comparazioni; non del tutto trascurabile è l'indagine sulla religione araba, ancora definita "Mahomettana".
