        Historia navigationis in Brasiliam quæ et America dicitur. Qua describitur authoris navigatio, ... Secunda editio.Geneva, heirs of Eustache Vignon, 1594. 8vo. With 7 full-page and 1 folding woodcut plate (16 x 22.5 cm), 7 full-page woodcuts on integral leaves. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum with fillets.

      Borba de Moraes, pp. 468-473; JCB I, p. 334; Rodrigues 1399 note; Sabin 40154; cf. Adams L536 (1586 ed.). Rare second separately published Latin edition, with minor revisions, of a very important, successful and beautifully illustrated work on Brazil by the Protestant minister Jean de Léry (1534-1611). De Léry, born Margelle (Bourgogne) in 1534, altered the course of his life by deciding in 1556 to accompany a group of Protestant (Huguenot) ministers and faithful to Brazil under the protection of Admiral Caspard de Coligny (1519-1572). He left for Brazil with 13 others in November 1556, heading for the colony founded the year before by Vice-Admiral Nicolas Durand, Chevalier de Villegagnon on an island in the Bay of Rio de Janeiro. Léry's book attempts to provide French readers with an accurate description of Brazil, its people (including their shocking cannibalism) and its exotic plants and animals.With inscriptions on an endleaf. An owner's stamp on the back of the title-page and margins of two text pages has been partly erased. Very slightly browned, with some small marginal worm holes in the first and last leaves, but still in good condition. The binding also has some worm holes, but is also good, with the tooling very crisp and clear.

        Pratica Manuale di Arteglieria;

      Venice: Pietro Dusinelli ad instantia del proprio Auttore, , 1586. Nellaquale si tratta della inventione di essa, dell'ordine di condurla, & piantarla sotto à qualunque fortezza, fabricar mine da far volar in alto le fortezze, spianar le montagne, divertir l'acque offensive à i Regni & provincie, tirar co i pezzi in molti & diversi modi, far fuochi artificialii, con altri bellissimi secreti all'essercito dell'arteglieria appartenenti. Folio (340 × 225 mm). Contemporary limp vellum, title inked to the spine, upper cover somewhat wormed, overall slightly stained, spine with a number of splits and slight loss towards the head. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Title page with superb wood-cut border of caryatids and putti enclosing the arms of the Duke of Aragon, 6 full-page and 29 smaller wood-cut illustrations to the text, 2 plates bound in on separate leaves, blank verso, unpaginated but signed as S2 and T2. Some marginal staining throughout, heavier on G1, small piece torn from the corner of M3 no loss of text or image, small paper flaw to *3, the second leaf of the Dedicatory Epistle, costing part of two letters, a few scattered worm-holes, largely marginal and similarly costing only parts of letters, indistinct early armorial ink stamp to the title page and a quantity of marginal notes in a later Italian hand. Remains an attractive, unsophisticated copy. First edition. Foundation text for the practical application of scientific principles to artillery, "the first really detailed, well-illustrated technical manual on both the theory and practice of artillery." (Hall Ballistics in the Seventeenth Century, p. 46). Meticulously covers the manufacture, testing and firing of various types of ordnance, the history and manufacture of gunpowder, the duties of gunners and artillery officers, the use of naval artillery, the employment of various kinds of projectiles, mining and the military and entertaining uses of fireworks. Collado had served as an engineer in Philip II's army in Italy and perhaps produced this grand treatise in an effort to attract patronage: a less sumptuous edition was published some 20 years later. Uncommon, COPAC records only the BL copy in Britain, OCLC has just 9 copies, no copy at auction for 10 years. D'Ayala, who had not seen a copy, considered it rare, however the Italian Union Catalogue inevitably locates a swathe of copies.

        DE RERUM NATURA IUXTA PROPRIA PRINCIPIA. Libri IX. Ad illustrissimum et eccellentiss Don Ferdinanum Carrafam Nuceria Ducem

      Apud Horatium Salvianum, 400 pp., Neapoli 1586 - "Bernardino Telesio (1509-1588) was an italian philosopher and natural scientist. While his natural theories were later disproven, his emphasis on observation made him the "first of the moderns" who eventually developed the scientific method. What is perhaps most striking about De rerum natura is Telesio's attempt to mechanize as much as possible. Telesio clearly strives to explain everything in terms of matter informed by hot and cold and to keep his arguments as simple as possible. When his discussions turn to human beings he introduces an instinct of self-preservation to account for their motivations. And when he discusses the human mind and its ability to reason in the abstract about immaterial and divine topics, he adds a soul. For without a soul, all thought, by his reasoning, would be limited to material things. This would make God unthinkable and clearly this was not the case, for observation proves that people think about God" (Wikipedia). Engraved illustration on title page. Bound in original vellum.

        Martyrologio Romano reformado co[n]forme a la nueua razo[n] del kale[n]dario, y verdad de la historia ecclesiastica. Traduzido agora nuevamete de lengua latina en la Española: por Dionysio Vazquez [.].

      Valladolid, D. F. de Cordova, 1586. - 4to. (12), 214 ff. With numerous woodcut initials and 12 woodcuts in the text. 18th-c. marbled calf with label to gilt spine. All edges red. Rare first Spanish edition. The "Martyrologium romanum" was newly edited by Cardinal Baronius in 1584 after the calendar reforms of Pope Gregory XIII. The 1586 edition published in Rome is rare, as well, as the author had most copies called back after he had been made aware of mistakes owing to his poor command of Greek. He corrected the work and issued it once more in Antwerp in 1589, in Rome in 1598, and in Paris in 1607" (cf. Wetzer/W. I, 2038). Another edition of the uncorrected first version was printed in Venice in 1587 (cf . ibid. I, 181). This present Spanish translation by the Jesuit Dionysio Vazquez can only be a largely unknown version based on the uncorrected original and is illustrated with 12 little woocuts (one for each month). Extremely rare; only an incomplete copy in OCLC (Newberry Library; last f. supplied in ms.). Collation shows departures from Palau ([13], 278, [2] ff.), but complete without an index. Later editions (published until the 18th century) are probably based on the revised text. - Contemp. ms. ownership note "Juan Igancio de Fuentes" on t. p.; signature of the Spanish composer Joan Pacheco Montion ("maestro de catedral" in 1684; cf. ABEPI I 696, 87) on final leaf. Palau 156.585. De Backer/Sommervogel VIII, 488. Not in BM-STC Spanish. Not in Adams. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Published simultaneously in Venice, Ferrara and Piacenza, the story takes the reader on a tour through a mental hospital, depicting various forms of psychological illness throughout the ages. The work opens with a dedication, followed by two sonnets. Examples of historicalfigures are given for each form of psychosis. An interesting aspect to take note of are the separate descriptions of identical diseases provided for women. The book notes that although the symptoms are similar if not the same, women throughout history have had less hope in receiving treatment, emphasizing their plight in comparison to that of other afflicted individuals. This volume offers a unique perspective on mental illness and how it was viewed by society in the late 16th century. A unique and valuable resource for anyone with an interest in the history of medicine or psychology. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Per il contenuto dell'opera rimandiamo all'ottimo studio di E. Refini "Mirabilia naturae tra scienza e poesia nel carme In Thermas pythias tradotto e commentato da Claudio Ancantero" il quale così si esprime: "Tradendo le aspettative suggerite dal titolo, il carme si presenta come un curioso elenco di fenomeni idrogeologici vagamente miracolosi, più propriamente legati alla tradizione dei Mirabilia Naturae che alla ricca produzione De Balneis. Dopo un breve preambolo che invita il lettore ad interrogarsi sulla natura delle acque sotterranee e sullo loro proprietà curative, il carme propone alcune minime indicazioni sulle teorie scientifiche relative ai fenomeni idrogeologici e vulcanici, per poi passare in rassgna esempi di meraviglie naturali più o meno verosimili: isole vulcaniche, fonte che provocano alternativamente ebbrezza e oblio, fonti che costringono a dire la verità o rivelano le frodi, ecc".

Tagli rossi. Impresa xilografica dei Bevilacqua (mancano i dati dello stampatore) al frontespizio. Dedica a stampa del Claro al Vescovo Antonio Perenotti. Alcune glosse marginali di mano cinquecentesca. Sparsi aloni e fioriture. Una traccia di bruciatura di alcuni mm. al margine inferiore di una c. d'indice, senza alcuna perdita testuale. Il legatore settecentesco ha inserito in principio anziché in fine le pp. di indice. Bell'esemplare nell'insieme. Rara cinquecentina torinese delle opere complete del celebre giurista alessandrino. Il Claro (Alessandria, 1525-a Cartegena o, per altre fonti, a Saragozza, 1575) fu fra i maggiori giuristi del Rinascimento italiano. Formatosi a Pavia e a Bologna, dove ascoltò fra l'altro le lezioni dell'Alciato, ricoprì la carica di Podestà di Cremona dal 1559 al 1561. Presto assurto a grande fama per il suo valore di giurista, venne nominato dal Re di Spagna, Filippo II, nominato membro e quindi reggente del Supremo Consiglio d'Italia in Madrid. La sua opera maggiore, le Sententiae receptae, qui rifuse, trattano nei primi quattro libri il diritto civile e il diritto feudale, e nel quinto la materia criminale. "Sotto il titolo, che richiamava intenzionalmente l'esempio dell'opera celebre dell'antico giurista classico Paolo, si raccoglieva un repertorio vastissimo di opinioni giurisprudenziali sulle materie più controverse del diritto civile. Il modello classico, tuttavia, era poco più di un prestigioso blasone, di un ossequio tributato alla giurisprudenza umanistica, utilizzata del resto con molta larghezza. Presente e vivissima era l'intera tradizione enciclopedica e lessicografica medievale, riorganizzata però in funzione di un'ispirazione diversa, che aveva altrove i suoi punti di riferimento e che esprimeva in modo assai chiaro il profondo mutare della giurisprudenza a metà Cinquecento, il suo passare dall'ambiziosa progettualità del periodo umanistico alla più dimessa, ma efficace strumentalità dei secoli dell'ancien régime" (A. Mazzacane in Diz. Biogr. d. Italiani). Bersano Begey, I, n. 174. Manca all'Adams e a STC Italian. 13 copie censite in biblioteche pubbliche italiane.

        Kreutterbuch...jetzt widerumb mit viel schönen neuwen Figuren, auch nützlichen Artzneyen, und andern guten stücken, auss sonderm fleiss gemehret, und verfertiget durch Joachimum Camerarium

      Title, printed in red & black, with large woodcut border by Jost Amman, ca. 1000 woodcuts in the text, & printer's device on colophon leaf, also by Amman. 8 p.l., 460, [38] leaves (the last a blank). Large folio, cont. blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards (for more on binding, see below), orig. brass clasps & catches. Frankfurt: [S. Feyerabend, P. Fischer, & H. Dack], 1586. First edition, and a superb copy, of the first edition of Camerarius's version of Mattioli's great herbal. The first German edition had appeared in 1563 in Prague, translated by Georg Handsch (1529-78). For our edition, Joachim Camerarius (1534-98), took Handsch's translation and added his own extensive commentary; these passages are marked by asterisks. This edition contains the celebrated Gesner/Camerarius suite of woodcuts. Gesner had been preparing material for a massive Historia plantarum but died before finishing the task. Camerarius acquired the material, utilized the woodcuts in the present work and supplemented them with his own. They are remarkable in their scientific detail, especially the enlarged depictions of floral structure, seeds, and fruit. This is the first time that such representation was consistently followed, and marks the beginning of what only much later became a convention in scientific botanical illustration, when the taxonomic importance of these details was fully appreciated. They also appeared in Camerarius' recension of Mattioli, De Plantis Epitome utilissima of the same year (which is a different text from the above, and not merely a Latin version of the same). In addition to the botanical cuts, the German edition contains seven woodcuts of distilling apparatus. In the Foreword, Camerarius describes in detail the history of the production of this book, and of the woodblocks in particular. Not all of the Gesner woodblocks were finished when Camerarius set out to edit Mattioli's text. In supervising the cutting of the already executed designs of the blocks, he took much care in assuring they were botanically correct. In the preface he gives a list of woodcuts already finished, but not botanically correct, and describes how the depicted configurations and shapes of leaves differ from nature. The fine title woodcut has, within an oval at top, a female figure seated and feeding a snake, with the motto "Bonae Valetudini Digatum"; at bottom another oval containing a fine small agricultural scene, with a tree surrounded by a woven fence at center, having the motto "Wan Gott Wil / Spes," the whole surrounded by the motto "Omnia Florebunt Prospiciente Deo." The compartment is inscribed at the bottom left "C S", and at right "I A". Binding: contemporary blindstamped pigskin over wooden boards, two rolls bearing the monogram "M. N." (attributed by Haebler, Rollen und Plattenstempel, 313, 1 and 2, to Martin Nebert of Nuremberg). With the original brass clasps and catches. Provenance: Slightly later manuscript entry at foot of title: "Weil dieses Buch in meiner Bibliothec doppelt gewesen, habe diese Theil meinem lieben Hn: Schwager Tit: Hn: George Herman von Schweinitz geschencket. Hans Friedrich v. [?]Mutschelnitz." A fine, tall, and crisp copy with many lower edges uncut. A few gatherings with some very slight browning and a small patch of marginal worming on leaves 243-53 not affecting text. The binding is somewhat soiled. .

        GOLDEN BOOKE OF MARCUS AURELIUS, Emperour and Eloquent Oratour

      London By Thomas East 1586 - A very early edition in English, likely only the third. Translated by Lord Berners, John Bourchier. Title-page within woodcut border, woodcut tailpieces on the final page of text and after the colophon, which has a woodcut printer's mark on the verso. Small 8vo, in antique full tan calf, the boards with fine blind-tooled panels, the spine richly decorated in blind between raised bands, one compartment with a red morocco label ruled in lettered in gilt, additional gilt lettering at the foot, page edges and end-leaves marbled. A1-nn8, lacking mm2-mm8. A handsome copy, quite fresh and solid, a small defect to the first leaf of the table at front effecting a few words of text, very occasional other trivial soiling or evidence of use, occasional early marginal evidence of long ago damp, very minor, the binding handsome and strong. A SCARCE 16TH CENTURY ENGLISH EDITION OF ANTONIO DE GUEVARA'S DISCOURSE ON THE IDEAL RULE OF KINGS BASED UPON THE EXAMPLES OF MARCUS AURELIUS. Guevara was an important Spanish court preacher and served as historian to the Holy Roman Emperor and King of Spain, Charles V. This work purports to be a life of Marcus Aurelius, but was an original work by him meant to use examples from Aurelius' life to function as a discourse on ideal rule for the new King. He claimed he discovered it in an old manuscript and that his contributions and decisions as an editor were merely of style and not of real substance. It "presented a richly drawn portrait of Marcus Aurelius as an emperor and as a man. The book's extraordinary success was owed in no small part to this humanized characterization. in the 17th-century it was said that in its epoch, no book but the Bible enjoyed such a wide diffusion. (It] created a new dimension to the personality of Marcus Aurelius, popularizing the Emperor as the ideal prince." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'Hospidale de Pazzi incurabili, nuovamente formato

      Ferrara: Giulio Cesare Cagnacini, 1586. <p>Garzoni, Tomaso (1549-89). L&#146;hospidale de&#146; pazzi incurabili. 8vo. [8], 107, [1]ff. Ferrara: Giulio Cesare Cagnacini & Fratelli, 1586. 149 x 103 mm. Modern calf. Light foxing and dampstaining, top margin trimmed a little close not affecting text, but very good. Early ownership inscription on title, library stamps on verso of last leaf. </p><p>First Octavo Edition (a quarto edition and a duodecimo edition were also published the same year, in Venice and Piacenza respectively). Garzoni, an Italian monk, published a number of historical, philosophical and theological works during his short life, the best known of which is the present work on mental illness. It is remarkable for offering a glimpse of the 16th-century layman&#146;s (i.e., non-physician&#146;s) attitude toward insanity. </p><p>"As the author specifically states, his book is intended to popularize the issue of insanity in order to enhance good mental health for the average person. In so doing, Garzoni in fact presents a reliable picture of the contemporary view of mental illness as held by the general public rather than by the medical profession. </p><p>"In the first thirty chapters he presents a series of abnormal persons, each one characterized by a particular adjective according to the custom of the time (for instance, odd, stubborn, extravagant). From the description of the behavior of these individuals it is possible to relate these adjectives to modern psychopathological conditions: depression, schizophrenia, stupor, mental retardation, anxiety, psychopathic personality, impulsivity, paranoia, sexual disorders, periodic mania, psychomotor agitation, negativism, homicidal tendency, and others" (Mora, pp. 245-246). </p><p>Garzoni&#146;s work went through a number of editions, and was translated into English in 1600 under the title The Hospitall of Incurable Fooles. Mora, &#147;Renaissance conceptions and treatments of madness,&#148; in History of Psychiatry and Medical Psychology, ed. Wallace and Gach, pp. 227-254.</p>

        Moyens d'Abus, entreprises et nullitez du referit et bulle du Pape Sixte Ve. Du nom, en date du mois de Septembre 1585. Contre le Serenissime Prince, Henry de Bourbon, Roy de Navarre, Seigneur Souverain de Béarn, premier Prince du Sang de France, et premier Pair de la Couronne. Et Henry de Bourbon, aussi Prince du Sang, Pair de France, Prince de Condé, Duc d'Anguien. Par un Catholique, Apostolique, Romain: mais bon François, et très fidèle subiet de la couronne de France. Imprimé nouvellement.

      S.l., 1586. - in-12. 5ff. 30pp. 451pp. Vélin de l'époque à rabats, titre manuscrit au dos. Rare édition de cette défense des droits de Henri IV à la couronne de France par le Montalbanais Pierre de Belloy (1540-c.1609). Magistrat à Toulouse, auteur de divers écrits polémiques, il mit beaucoup d'ardeur à défendre les prétentions de Henri de Bourbon contre le pape et les Ligueurs, ce qui lui valut d'être jeté à la Bastille par le duc de Guise. "Ce livre curieux et rare ( ), plein d'érudition, est écrit d'un style très remarquable pour l'époque" (Techener, pour l'édition originale d'Embrun parue la même année). Il contient la Bulle du pape Sixte V traduite en français et abondamment annotée, suivie d'une intéressante explication des bornes de l'autorité papale. Notre exemplaire comporte au verso du titre une longue note manuscrite ancienne sur l'auteur : "Bellarmin a écrit contre lui et soutient que P. Belloy loin d'être un catholique était un hérétique et même un athée déguisé, mais c'était le langage de la passion", etc. Ratures à la page de titre. Manque à Brunet et à Graesse qui citent deux autres éditions de 1586. Manque à Adam. Léon Techener, Répertoire universel de bibliographie, Paris, 1869, p. 397 n°2972 (qui ne fait pas mention des 30pp. Préliminaires): "Imprimé en petits caractères dans le même genre que les 'Petits mémoires de Condé' publiés à Strasbourg par Pierre Estiard".

Batava 440-446; Enno van Gelder 306-310). After a gap of 20 years Hillebrant Jacobsz. van Wouw, official printer to the Dutch States General, finally published an updated edition (though the province of Holland issued its own in 1604), and he and his heirs were to produce new editions regularly for the following 20 years.With the title-page pasted to the fly-leaf, a tiny wormhole throughout and a small burning hole through three leaves, not affecting the text. Very good copy.

      Francofurdi (Frankfurt), 1586 & 1590:Francofurdi (Frankfurt), 1586 & 1590 Liber Sextus Decretalium (1586) [8], 622 [1] deals with the "Regulae Iuris" originally pubished in 1298. It is found here at the end of book VI and is now published as one of the five Decretals in the Corpus Iuris Canonici.Of course, at the time Pope Boniface VIII claimed final authority of the the church and the state. It was the abuse of papal power that Danate addressed in Part One of the Divine Comedy, the inferno damning him with the circles of Fraud.Bound with this volume is the massive work of Pierre Matthieu, Septimus decrtalium constitutionum apostolicarum post sextum...[16] 655 [81]. Here his extensive publishing of all the decretal rules with decisions made by individuals with the greatest accuracy and detail. He quotes authorities both papal and those in the universities which accordingly lack binding authority though canon law experts repeatedly found his high level of scholarship useful to place the decrees in their historical context. Together these volumes constitute the thread that binds canon law theory from the 13th to the 16th century..
