        Le parfait courtisan

      De L’Imprimerie de George L’Oysselet, pour Claude Micard a Paris, Rouen 1585 - 8vo. pp. (xxxii), 660, (xxxiv); Lacking last blank. Double column, French in Roman letter, Italian in Italic. Title within ornate architectural border publisher’s initials at head and tail, small woodcut portrait bust, woodcut initials and headpieces, C19th stamp "B. Grandmaison" in lower blank margin of title, with a ms. shelf mark above. Light age yellowing, title very slightly dusty, with a couple of small marginal holes, minor light marginal water-stain in lower margin towards end. A very good clean copy in contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, remains of ties, lower outer corner of lower cover torn. Excellent edition of the best C16th French translation of Castiglione’s Cortigione by Gabriel Chapuis, published simultaneously in Lyon, Rouen and Paris, a near exact reprint of the first of 1580, of tremendous influence in France. This translation was also published in Britain in 1588 in Wolfe’s trilingual edition along with the equally influential English translation by Thomas Hoby. Chapuis states that his reason for attempting a new translation is, in the same way that the Perfect Courtier described in the book cannot actually exist, neither can the perfect translation, and he felt that previous attempts had fallen short of the high standards demanded by Castiglione’s masterpiece. The Cortigione is the prototype courtesy book and one of the most enduringly popular and influential works of the Italian Renaissance. "The Courtier depicts the ideal aristocrat, and it has remained the perfect definition of a gentleman ever since. It is an epitome of the highest moral and social ideals of the Italian Renaissance, many of them inspired by classical examples. Another section provides similar rules for the conduct of a lady and the book ends with the celebrated pronouncement on platonic love by Bembo.", Printing and the Mind of Man. The work was soon translated into most European languages and Cervantes, Corneille, Shakespeare, Spenser, Jonson and Shelley are but a few of those who are clearly in its debt. The book is based on a nostalgic recreation of Castiglione's experience at the court of Duke Guidobaldo da Montefeltro of Urbino at the turn of the sixteenth century. It describes the ideal court and courtier, and relates the philosophical, cultured and lively conversations that occurred at Urbino, presided over by Elizabetta Gonzaga. The conversation, which takes place over a span of four days in the year 1507, addressed the topic, proposed by Federico Fregoso, of what constitutes an ideal Renaissance gentleman and is written in refined and elegant prose, spiced with humour. The speakers, prominent nobles and literati in the court of Urbino, include Giuliano de Medici, Pietro Bembo, Ludovico da Canossa Emilia Pia, Elizabetta Gonzaga amongst many others. BM STC Fr.

        Trattato dell'arte della pittura, scoltura, et architettura, di Gio. Paolo Lomazzo milanese pittore, diuiso in sette libri. . Con vna tauola de' nomi de tutti li pitttori, scoltori, architetti, & matematici antichi, & moderni. .

      per Paolo Gottardo Pontio, stampatore regio. A instantia di Pietro Tini, Milan 1585 - FIRST EDITION OF A SEMINAL WORK OF ART THEORY FIRST EDITION second issue. 4to. [xl], 700 [i.e. 698] [ii]. [?]?, [??] A-2V?, 2X? Roman letter, titles in Italic. Small woodcut printer’s device on title, divisional half-title with woodcut portrait of Lomazzo in medallion on recto of B1, contemporary ms. ex libris ‘Biblio D.D. Corroli de Pradol, epipi Monsque’ to blank margin of title, shelf mark on pastedown. Light age yellowing, the very occasional minor marginal mark. A very good, well margined copy, crisp and clean, in contemporary limp vellum, remains of ties, head of spine restored, soiled and rubbed. First edition, second issue with a new title page, of this seminal work of art theory by the Italian painter and writer Lomazzo. "Lomazzo, the Milanese painter (1538-1600), wished to give in his theoretical writings the final and conclusive argument for the nobility of painting. By demonstrating that the painter’s primary and most important activity was intellectual, and that that his manual activity was in all cases simply an execution of ideas mentally conceived, he extended to painters the dignity hitherto enjoyed by poets and rhetoricians. By supplying rules for the seven parts of painting that he had logically deduced from careful definition, he "reduced painting to an art," and elevated it to an academic subject. These demonstrations were to result in a single and complete treatise that covered theory, technique, and subject matter. . Lomazzo’s publications were not motivated simply by his vanity as a painter or his ambition as a writer. During the century and a half previous to his career, enormous changes had taken place in the art of painting, which made his arguments for the higher station of painting both necessary and valid. Painters had developed techniques and rules that could be systematized and taught like those of the liberal arts, and they had increased the range and seriousness of the thematic matter of the art in a way to rival literature. The technical accomplishments of the Renaissance painters are still admired and studied in an age that abjures their employment, and the full extent of the intellectual content of Renaissance painting will remain a matter for inquiry, discovery and synthesis through many more years of iconographical studies." Gerald Ackerman. The Art Bulletin Vol. 49, No. 4 (Dec., 1967). "It is the summa of late Renaissance theory of art, a book Schlosser called the ‘bible of Mannerism’. .Lomazzo’s art theory reached many readers. Still in the sixteenth century a translation of the Trattato appeared in Oxford, "englished by Richard Haydock, student of Physick" (1598). A treatise by the English miniature painter Richard Hilliard is so closely related to the Trattato that it has been considered a paraphrase of Lomazzo’s text. Here was finally the longed -for, articulate, complete system of painting - and Lomazzo constructed a system perfectly fitting the intellectual and emotional atmosphere prevailing among the public he addressed. His claim to providing a system rests, to begin with , on what he believes to be a complete enumeration of the constituents, or "parts" of paintings. The art of producing images consists of seven parts, and to each of them a book of the Trattato is devoted." Moshe Barasch. ‘Theories of Art: From Plato to Winckelmann’. The book is also full of first-hand information about milanese artists, quoting extensively from lost sources. The seventh and final book includes a veritable dictionary of the iconography of the period. A lovely copy of this important first edition. BM STC C16 It., p. 391. Brunet, III, 1148 ‘Estimés et peu communs’. Comolli, A. Bib. storico-critica dell'architettura civile, I, p. 18-24. Fowler, 186. Cicognara 159-161. Berlin Kat 4612 Italian [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Published: [1585] - 1585 Catholic Apologetics Genealogy House of BOURBON & Capet Pierre de Belloy Extremely Rare with Folding Genealogies Pierre de Belloy (1540 – 1613) was a French lawyer and magistrate. We do not find any other 16th-century examples of this same work for sale anywhere else! However, its popularity remained continuously through the 18th-century and was printed numerous times in numerous languages during that time. Catholic Apologetics were extremely important during the late 16th-century and have always been an important facet of the Catholic tradition. The remarkable inclusion in this particular book is the family genealogies. There is a folding plate of the Bourbon family genealogy, part of which is hand-written. The other family genealogy is the Capets. Main author: Pierre de Belloy Title: Apologie catholique, contre les libelles, declarations, advis et consultations faictes, escrites, et publiees par les liguez perturbateurs du repos du Royaume de France : qui se sont esleuez despuis le decez de feu monseigneur, frere unique du Roy Published: [1585] Language: French FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE Wear: wear as seen in photos Binding: tight and secure vellum binding Pages: complete with all 124 pages; plus indexes, prefaces and such Publisher: 1585 Size: ~6.75in X 4in (17cm x 10cm) Photos available upon request.

Jacques Guillemeau from Orleans (1550-1612), was a pupil of Ambroise Paré, to whom the book is dedicated. Paré, in his turn, contributed a laudatory poem to the work. The present Dutch edition was translated by Carolus Battus (author of an early cookbook). The book includes several fine historiated woodcut initials.Fine copy, with bookplate and signatures.

Claude Favre de Vaugelas (1585 - 1650) had blijkens het voorwoord meer dan dertig jaar aan de vertaling gewerkt om haar tot een toonbeeld van onberispelijk Frans te maken. Het resultaat van al zijn inspanningen zou hij nooit in druk zien, want de vertaling verscheen voor het eerst in 1653, drie jaar na zijn dood. Bezorger van de uitgave is Pierre du Ryer (1605 - 1658). Hij vertaalde de uitvoerige ""supplementen"" van Johann Freinshemius, die vooraf gaan aan het derde boek van Curtius. Het boek is zeldzaam.

Contemporary blind stamped pigskin, covers blind tooled with multi line & ornamental borders, a centre panel stamp depicting the figures & text beneath, 'Grammattic, Dialectica, Retorica, Aritmetica', back cover shows the figures of 'Musica (2), Geometria, Astronomi', spine divided into five panels, book block with carmine red edges; darkened but in good sound condition.This edition was first published in 1566 and was based on a larger octavo edition which Poelman, 1512-1581, had prepared for Plantin the year before. It was this text, with a slightly variant imprint, and a preliminary dedication, that launched Plantin's series of 24mo classical editions for travellers. 1585 was an important year in Plantin's printing, as following the capitulation of Antwerp to the Spaniards in August he returned to the city after two years of self-imposed exile in Leiden. This 16mo edition was produced by Plantin's son-in-law Jan Moretus at the Antwerp office whilst Plantin was still away in Leiden. For a detailed analysis of this subject see David J. Shaw.

La pagination revient en arrière à 204 jusqu'à 210, puis reprend à 233. Nouvelle erreur après la page 561, qui au verso passe à 512 et poursuit jusqu'à la fin. Le tout sans manque. Importante édition tant le genre du poème appelle les commentaires et l'érudition. La première semaine, tant que sa suite, la seconde, est une sorte de poème encyclopédique qui suit le déroulement de la Genèse et propose à ses lecteur la somme des connaissances du monde. La poésie de Bartas eut un immense succès en son temps, peut-être parce qu'on y trouvait également une foule d'enseignements sur les anciens, la science, et les inventions. Goethe en fut un fervent admirateur, elle fut moins goûtée par la suite en France, qui la jugea bonne dans ses idées mais trop débridée à son goût. La Renaissance eut beaucoup de goût pour la paraphrase et La semaine qui est déjà une forme de paraphrase de la Genèse se voit ici à son tour paraphrasée, mais cette fois par un discours scientifique qui éclaire sa mise en oeuvre et les dessous de son écriture, tant sur l'astromie, la science naturelle, la botanique, les mathématiques, que l'ensemble des savoirs qui glorifie l'homme.

A.R. il Duca di Genova. I tomo: 12 pagine non numerate compreso il frontespizio con titolo e bella marca tipografica silografata, antiche note manoscritte cassate, di cui una con picclo ritaglio integrato; 248 pagine numerate; 4 pagine non numerate compreso frontespizio con titolo MODESTI DE VOCABOLIS REI MILITARIS LIBELLUS AD TACITUM AUGUSTUM; da pagina 249 a 276 numerate; risultano mancanti le susseguenti 36 pagine non numerate citate nelle bibliografie.

All'interno di entrambi i volumi, numerosi capolettera silografati; al secondo tomo, numerose illustrazioni a carattere militare a silografia. Prima rara edizione del commento di Stewechius, professore a Pont A Musson  all'opera  De Re Militari di Renatus Vegetius,  lo scrittore militare romano del IV secolo della cui personale vita si sa poco, ma il cui libro è stato costantemente ristampato e tradotto in tutte le lingue moderne; una fonte primaria della nostra conoscenza della guerra romana. L'opera  è suddivisa in vari capitoli o libri: reclute e agenzie; organizzazione delle legioni (la fanteria romana); operazioni di un esercito nel bel mezzo di una campagna; attacco e difesa fortificazioni;  tattica navale. Questa prima edizione dell'opera di Vegetius unita ad altre fonti, fu stampata dal famoso editore Plantin e curata dallo studioso Godescalcus Stewechius. Altrettanto importante per l'edizione, tuttavia, sono le illustrazioni, che hanno contribuito notevolmente a rappresentare un quadro generale dell'esercito romano. Come da collazione segnalata, con 4 frontespizi, ciascuno con marca tipografica di Plantin, un ritratto dello Stewechius inc. in rame al verso del frontespizio del Commento, una tavola ripiegata rappresentante una fortificazione romana, schemi e figure raffiguranti soldati e macchine da guerra in silografia nel testo. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, dichiarata mancanza di 36 pagine non numerate al fine del I tomo, alcune carte con uniforme, lieve, ossidazione. 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Troisième édition de la traduction de Denis Godefroy du Code de Justinien qui fit autorité jusqu'à la fin du XIXè siècle. Dans le présent exemplaire, le Codex (Codicis) est en édition originale de la version de Godefroy et le Livre des fiefs (Feudorum) est en quatrième édition. Quant aux Nouvelles constitutions (Novellae constitutiones), elles se trouvent en troisième édition. Les tables de ces dernières sont dues à Pieter Cornelis van Brederode, juriste hollandais, ambassadeur des États-généraux à plusieurs cours d'Allemagne. Le Corpus juris civilis (codex Iustinianus ou codex legum), plus communément appelé Code de Justinien, constitue la compilation et la codification du droit romain antique la plus importante héritée de l'Antiquité. Oeuvre législative de premier plan, elle joua un rôle fondamental dans l'évolution de l'Occident médiéval qui adopta, dès le XIIè siècle, le droit romain à partir de cette forme transmise par Justinien Ier. Elle est née de la volonté de Justinien Ier (483-565), empereur de l'Empire romain d'Orient de 527 à 565, de doter son empire d'un nouveau code de droit fidèle à la tradition romaine. Originaire d'une famille grecque romanisée d'Illyrie, ou d'une famille illyrienne romanisée et hellénisée, cet empereur possédait une vaste culture classique doublée d'une solide formation gréco-latine. La direction de cet ambitieux travail, qui dura quatorze mois, fut confiée en l'an 529 à une commission de dix juristes présidée par Tribonien, fonctionnaire de la cour. Puis, d'une seconde commission, présidée par le même en l'an 534 naquit une seconde version plus restreinte qui donna naissance au Code officiel. [A cette fin, les juristes reprirent et adaptèrent les textes classiques de l'époque, notamment la loi dite des Douze tables et les constitutions impériales du Bas-empire (leges)) publiées depuis Hadrien, mettant à jour par-là même le Code de Théodose qui datait de l'an 438]. Maintes fois éditée au XVè siècle, et tout au long du XVIè siècle, il fallut attendre la traduction exégétique donnée par Denis Godefroy pour fixer durablement une version latine imprimée, manière de Vulgate, qui prévalut jusqu'à la fin du XIXè siècle. En effet, cette version appelée Littera Gothfrediana, ou Gothofredus, ne fut remaniée significativement qu'avec celle donnée par Théodore Mommsen et Paul Krüger (Berlin, Weidmann, 1870), près de trois cents ans plus tard.

        Les Oeuvres de Rémy Belleau

      à Paris: Gilles Gilles, 1585. Fine. Gilles Gilles, à Paris 1585, 2 vol. petit in-12 (7,5x13cm), 304ff. (5p.) et 154ff. (17p.), relié. - 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. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Notre exemplaire réunit le tome premier de la seconde édition collective (1585) au tome second de la première (1578). Le premier volume renferme cinq recueils du poète : les Amours et nouveaux eschanges des pierres précieuses, le Discours de la vérité pris de l'Ecclésiaste, les Églogues sacrées prises du Cantique des cantiques, les deux journées de La Bergerie et les Apparences célestes d'Aral, poëte grec (soit 198 pièces, chiffrées en continu, dont le texte suit l'édition de 1578). Le second volume contient l'Anacréon, des poèmes variés (Petites inventions, Sonnets, Discours, Odes, Chansons, Complaintes, Cartel, Épigrammes, Épitaphes), la comédie La Reconnue et le Tombeau de Remy Belleau. Reliures XXème en plein maroquin rouge signées Huser, dos janséniste à cinq nerfs, doubles filets dorés sur les coupes et les coiffes, larges dentelles dorées en encadrement des contreplats de papier à la cuve, toutes tranches dorées. Très bel exemplaire. Remy Belleau rejoint assez vite le collège de Coqueret, aux côtés de Ronsard, Du Bellay, Baïf, puis la Pleïade en 1554. Il publie en 1556 sa traduction des Odes d'Anacréon, qui eut un succès considérable par sa légèreté et sa plus grande exactitude. Il sera le premier traducteur des oeuvres de Sapho. Ses Pierres précieuses sont quelque chose de nouveau, associant le symbolisme des pierres et le savoir scientifique. La Bergerie, poème pastoral évoquant la poésie italienne, mêlant poèmes et prose narrative, fut également couronnée d'un beau succès en son temps. Belleau fut surtout un grand admirateur et connaisseur des poètes grecs dans lesquels il a puisé sa manière simple et gracieuse, sans afféterie. Il demeure le poète le plus célèbre de la Pleïade, après Ronsard et Du Bellay. Il est par ailleurs très présent dans les éditions de Ronsard.

Poème épique en strophes de huit vers et 20 chants, la Jérusalem délivrée conte l'histoire de la première croisade et de Godefroy de Bouillon qui devint le premier souverain de Jérusalem. Le Tasse s'inscrit dans la tradition de l'Arioste de l'Orlando furioso (Roland Furieux) en lui empruntant même plusieurs éléments. Les héros subissent de nombreux tourments tragiques, entre l'amour et le devoir, entre l'honneur et les sentiments... Un deuxième aspect non moins caractéristique de l'oeuvre est l'utilisation du registre fantastique. Ces éléments nourriront plus tard l'opera (Monteverdi ou Handel) et la peinture.

      - RICHELIEU, Armand Jean du Plessis, duc de (1585-1642), homme d'État. L.S. 18 août 1641. 2 p. in-fol. sur un double feuillet. Important document historique concernant l'Assemblée générale du Clergé qui s'est ouverte à Mantes le 15 février 1641. Il est probable que Richelieu s'adresse ici à l'un de ses commissaires des comptes, approuvant le compte-rendu de ses dépenses, le complimentant sur sa diligence et sur la façon dont certaines affaires ont été traitées. Il précise notamment, au sujet de la déclaration accordée en faveur des fermiers et receveurs du clergé, qu¿il n'y a pas de raison d'y ajouter les impôts de subsistance : « j'escrits sur ce sujet à Mr de Chartres [Léonor d¿Estampes de Valençay, évêque de Chartres et fidèle de Richelieu] ainsy que vous l'avez désiré et vous envoie ma lettre ». Il a appris avec grand déplaisir l'émotion suscitée à Grenoble « sur le sujet de l'establissement de la subvention générale dans la ville », en ajoutant qu'il n'a rien de plus à y faire, non plus qu'en Bourgogne, que des mesures seront prises pour faire payer la généralité de Tours, etc. Ces Assemblées générales du clergé, dont la précédente s'était tenue en 1635, réglaient non seulement des questions théologiques mais aussi et surtout les rapports financiers entre l'Église et le roi. Et celle qui se tint en 1641 fut l'occasion de nombreux désaccords entre Richelieu, qui souhaitait obtenir davantage de subsides de la part des différentes provinces ecclésiastiques, et certains archevêques qui voulaient eux éviter l'aliénation de leurs biens.

        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

        DISCORSI DELLA CONSERVATIONE DELLA VISTA, DELLE MALATTIE MELANCONICHE, DELLI CATARRI, E DELLA VECCHIAIA, COMPOSTI IN LINGUA FRANCESE DAL SIG. ANDREA LORENZO, MEDICO FISICO [...] TRADOTTI IN LINGUA ITALIANA, E COMMENTATI DA FR. GIO. GERMANO FRANCESE, MEDICO CHIRURGO, [...]

      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. Garrison-Morton 5556 (Ausg. 1478); Heirs of Hippocrates 108 (Ausg. 1572) und 109 (Ausg. 1615)
