      Zürich: in officina Frosch. [Froschoviana = Froschauer] 1586. 16 Blatt, 611 Seiten, 62 Blatt. Blindgeprägter Ledereinband der Zeit auf Holzdeckeln und drei Bünden, Kl.-8°, 16 x 10,5 cm. (etwas berieben und bestoßen, kleine Lederverluste an den Kanten des hinteren Deckels, Schließen entfernt, Wurmlöcher auf vorderem Deckel, Vorsätze auf Spiegeln erneuert, im Ganzen ordentlich erhalten, detaillierte Beschreibung weiter unten) Das Papier ist etwas gebräunt, der Druck ist stellenweise etwas flau. 16 Seiten sind falsch paginiert, das Buch ist aber vollständig. Auf der Titelei sind zwei Besitzvermerke von alter Hand, die untere Ecke des Buchblocks ist leicht beschnitten, zahlreiche entfernte Eselsohren, an vielen Stellen dezente Feuchtigkeitsränder, auf den Seiten 193 bis 216 stärker, vereinzelt finden sich Radierspuren, Blatt 7/8 ist gelockert, 227/28 mit Fleck und Loch im weißen Rand, 461 stärker fleckig, die letzten Blätter mit Wurmspur im weißen Rand, nur das letzte Blatt mit kleinem Buchstabenverlust, das letzte Blatt mit hinterlegtem Loch von 1,5 cm Durchmesser und kleinem Textverlust. - Cicero (107 - 44 v. Chr.) war in politischer und philosophischer Hinsicht eine der bemerkenswertesten Persönlichkeiten der römischen Antike. Seine Prosa in Reden und Briefen war meisterhaft und galt den Humanisten nach der Wiederentdeckung der Schriftrollen durch Petrarca und Salutati im 14. Jahrhundert als absolutes Vorbild für den lateinischen Stil (vgl. Greenblatt: Die Wende. Wie die Renaissance entstand.). Neben den Briefen an seinen Bruder Quintus, den Briefen an Brutus und an Atticus bilden die Briefe an Familienmitglieder und an Freunde (epistulae ad familiares) eine eigene Kategorie. Nach der Erfindung des Buchdrucks wurden die Schriften Ciceros häufig verlegt, die Ausgabe mit den Anmerkungen des Reformators Melanchthon ist allerdings recht selten in den Bibliotheken des deutschen Sprachraums zu finden, auch in der Staatsbibliothek Berlin findet sich kein Exemplar. Eine erste Ausgabe dieses Werks erschien bei Froschauer schon 1575. Das Titelblatt mit der humorvollen Druckermarke Froschauers: Frösche, die einen Baum (der Weisheit?) erklettern. Auf die Briefe folgen 102 nicht paginierte Seiten mit den Anmerkungen Melanchthons, darauf 5 Seiten die lateinische Erklärung griechischer Wörter, darauf 11 Seiten "Nomenclatura" - ein Register der Adressaten Ciceros - und darauf noch auf 6 Seiten der Brief "Ciceronis ad Octavium". Octavian war einer der Triumvirn, die Cicero ermorden ließen. Christoph Hegendorph (Schriftsteller, Evangelischer Theologe und Jurist, 1500 - 1540) und Gisbert (Gybertus) Longolius (ein niederrheinischer Humanist 1507 - 1543) haben zur Gestalt des Textes und den Anhängen beigetragen. - VD 16: C 3057.

        De Humana Physiognomia libri III

      1586. PORTA, Giovanni Battista della. De Humana Physiognomia libri IIII. 138 ff., complete (numerous errors in pagination). Illustrated with engraved title-page (including a portrait of the author within an architectural border), engraved portrait of the dedicatee Cardinal Luigi d'Este two full-page engravings of a man and a woman (each repeated once), and 81 engravings by repetition of 27 copperplates. Folio, 322 x 224, bound in near-contemporary Italian vellum. Vico Equense: Giuseppe Cacchi, 1586. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, an eccentric sixteenth-century illustrated book, representing one of the earliest works on physiognomy, preceding by some two hundred years Lavater's attempts at estimating human character by features of the face. Porta's treatise on human physiognomy was written to "scientifically" establish the correspondence between external form of the body and the internal character of a person, specifically mental and moral attributes. Physiognomy (literally 'knowledge of nature') is the art of reading a person's character, disposition, even his future, from signs in his face. Porta here rationalizes the art, which was in fact practiced in ancient Greece, by comparing the likeness of various human features to those of animals. Among the animals depicted herein are the owl, ostrich, lion, crow, bull, ox, hog, monkey, donkey, cat, greyhound, eagle, horse, ram, rooster, and others -- all with their "human counterparts." This justly famous work was frequently reprinted: Thorndike (History of Magic and Experimental Science V, 68) estimates that twenty-one editions of Porta's De Humana physiognomia had already appeared by 1655. This first edition is now scarce in private ownership, and much sought-after owing to the high quality of the copperplates. "The designer and cutter of the illustrations is unknown. However, the distortion of features that is practiced in these hybrid monstrosities anticipates the caricaturist's process of blending real and exaggerated characteristics, suggesting that early scientific illustrators are among the forebears of caricaturists" (Brown University, Caricature and its Role in Graphic Satire, 1971, no. 12). Giovanni Battista della Porta (1535-1615) was one of the most interesting natural philosophers in Naples during the late Renaissance. From 1547 to 1552 the Neapolitan academies were closed by the Inquisition under suspicion of political intrigue; it is believed that during this time Porta was largely self-taught. Porta then established the Accademia dei Segreti (Academia Secretorum Naturae) which met at his own house in Naples, and was devoted to the discussion and study of the secrets of nature. Porta's Academy was eventually closed by the Inquisition, which also banned his writings. The range of Porta's scientific and literary interests is demonstrated by his works, which include treatises on "natural magic," cryptography, the art of memory and mnemonic devices, the physiognomy of the hands (based on his observations in the prisons of Naples, often cited as a precursor of criminal physiognomy), the physiognomy of plants, and optics. According to Ruth Mortimer, the texts of both the Hofer and Hollis copies are illustrated with 81 engravings by repetition of 54 copperplates, however, this was clearly an error, as there are 54 repeated images not 54 separate copperplates. There are in fact 27 different copperplates repeating to make a total of 81 in-text illustrations (as properly described in the copy at the British Library). In this copy, like the Hofer copy, the engravings of the hog and the bull, with their "human counterparts," were transposed on R3v and R4r (the bull should be on R3v). Likewise, Bb2r has a pasted overslip of the ichneumon and eyeball. Although the various impressions of this first edition have yet to be prioritized, these factors suggest that the present copy would belong to the earliest state. Leaf L1 with an early repair of a tear, lower margin supplied on leaves S2 and S3, some text affected. Binding with some staining, corner renewed on lower front cover, overall a very good copy. Mortimer, Italian 398. Durling, National Library of Medicine 3720. Osler 3714. DSB XI, 96-98. Norman 1723. L.G. Clubb, Giambattista della Porta, Dramatist, 1965, especially pp. 24 & 35 ff.

His biblical commentaries even earned him the admiration of the rabbis, for his commitment to the letter of the Hebrew. Jeronimo da Azambuja is responsible for this edition, he glazed her notes and comments. He was himself, although not belonging to the same generation as Pagnino (died in 1541) as a famous commentator of the Bible, including its interest in Hebrew.

Small quarto contemporary calf ruled in blind with a device stamped into each board (rebacked, corners worn); [20],341,[3],130pp, woodcuts through the text. Contemporary signature of John Leche on the title, probably one of the seven thousand John Leches of Carden who passed the name father to son since just after the big bang. Ours may be John Leche X of Carden Hall. A few gentlemanly annotations in Latin in the margins and inside the back cover. Someone pencilled "a tall copy" on the front endpaper and indeed there is close to a half inch spare above the headlines. First edition of this stanchion of English ideas of class, lineage and heredity and the innate nobility of the Gentleman.

        DISCORSI DIVISI IN SETTE GIORNATE NELLE QUALI TRA DAME E CAVAGLIERI RAGIONANDO

      VERONA: PER GIROLAMO DISCEPOLI, 1586. In 8. Dim. 20x14,5 cm. Pp. 12 (n.n.)+216. Rara edizione del 1586 di questo interessante trattato del Conte Annibale Romei (m.1590) di Ferrara. La prima edizione dell'opera del 1585 conteneva discorsi divisi in cinque giornate, questa è la seconda edizione contenente discorsi divisi in sette giornate. Il trattato è molto interessante in quanto permette di capire il rapporto tra la vita attiva e quella contemplativa all'interno delle corti rinascimentali. Tra gli argomenti trattati: la bellezza, l'amore, l'onore dell'uomo, il duello, il combattere alla macchia, come sistemare le dispute e ristabilire la pace, la nobiltà, le ricchezze, il combattere e le lettere. Curiosa la parte dedicata ai duelli. Non comune. Copertina in mezza pergamena maldestramente rilegata in mediocri condizioni generali con usure e parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture, bruniture e qualche lieve gora d'umidità. Usure ai margini delle prime 12 pagine senza perdita di testo. Strappetto al frontespizio. Buchino a pag. 95 con perdita di qualche lettera. Scarce edition of 1586 of this interesting treaty by the Count Annibale Romei (m.1590) from Ferrara. The first edition of 1585 conatined speeches divided into five days, this is the second edition containing speeches divided into seven days. The treaty is really interesting because it allows to understand the relationship between active and contemplative life inside the courts of the Rinascimento period. Among the issues treated: beauty, love, honour of man, duel, the illegal fighting, how to accomodate problems and mantain peace, nobleness, richnesses, fights and letters. A curious part is dedicated to duels. Not common work, high value. Half parchment cover poorly bound in poor general conditions with wearings and missing parts in the edges and spine. Binding in good conditions. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings, yellowings and some slight humidity stain. Wearings in the edges of the first 12 pages with no loss of text. Little tear in the title page. Little hole in page 95 with loss of some letter.

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.

After the death of his mother, Bernard sought admission into the Cistercian order. Three years later, he was sent to found a new abbey at an isolated clearing in a glen known as the Val d'Absinthe, about 15 km southeast of Bar-sur-Aube. According to tradition, Bernard founded the monastery on 25 June 1115, naming it Claire Vallée, which evolved into Clairvaux.

        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.

Duke Wilhelm V of Bavaria, influenced by the Jesuits, ordered his private secretary, Andreas Erstenberger, to write this work (issued under the name of the recently deceased Roman Catholic apologist Burckhard).

        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]

        L'hospidale De' Pazzi Incurabili

      Ferrara: Appresso, Giulio Cefare Cagnacini, & Fratelli 1586 - 24mo. Vellum. 4 bands, 5 compartments down spine. 107 pages. Italian. Tight binding and unmarked pages. Minimal wear to 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]
