        Littletons Tenures in English. London, Rycharde Tottill, 1586

      1586. Littleton, Sir Thomas [1402-1481]. Littletons Tenures in English. [London: Imprinted...in Fletestrete Within Temple Barre...by Rycharde Tottill, 1586]. 142, [2] ff. Octavo (5" x 3-1/2"). Contemporary calf, large central arabesques to boards, raised bands and later lettering piece to spine, ties lacking. Rubbing with considerable wear to spine ends and edges, front pastedown and free endpaper lacking, rear endleaves renewed, a few cracks to text block, several signatures loose, wear to corners of some leaves. Light soiling to title page, faint dampstains in places. Brief early annotations to title page and a few leaves, interior otherwise clean. * Written during the reign of Edward IV [1442-1483] and first published around 1481, Littleton's Tenures is probably the most revered treatise in the history of the common law. Much admired for its learning and style, it is concerned with tenures and other issues relating to real property. This venerable work, which Coke called "the ornament of the Common Law, and the most perfect and absolute work that ever was written in any humane science," is considered a landmark because it renounced the principles of Roman law (and Latin) in favor of guidelines and doctrines drawn from the Year Books and, when necessary, hypothetical cases.

        Iulii Clari Patritii Alexandrini I. C. longe clarissimi, et Philippi Magni Hispaniarum Regis, supremi consiliarii, ac regentis digniss. Opera, quae quidem hactenus edita sunt, omnia.

      Augustae Taurinorum, [eredi di Niccolò Bevilacqua], 1586. 1586 In-folio (310x200mm), pp. (8), (54) di indice bicolonne, 424, legatura settecentesca p. pergamena con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso. 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. Sul Claro, E. von Moeller, Julius Clarus aus Alessandria, der Kriminalist des 16. Jahrhunderts, der Rat Philipps II. 1525-1575, Breslau, 1911 (ristampa anastatica, Aalen, 1977) e D.B.I., cit.

        De Plantis Epitome utilissima... Novis plane, et ad vivum expressis iconibus, descriptionibusque; longe & pluribus & accuratioribus nunc primum diligenter aucta, & locupletata, a D. Ioachimo Camerario... accesit, praeter indicem quam exactissimum, liber singularis de itinere ab urbe Verona in Baldum montem plantarum ad rem medicam facientium feracissimum, auctore Francisco Calceolario, pharmacopoeo Veronensi

      Frankfurt, J. Feyrabend, 1586. 4to (222 x 175 mm). pp (xii), 1003, (29), with printer's device on title and 1003 woodcuts in text; title with a small stain, outer margin a bit frayed with two small tears, some very light browning of the paper as is usual with this edition, a large, attractive copy in contemporary German blindstamped pigskin over boards, panels in blind enclosing an armorial device in blind signed 'G.K.' and with legend 'Des H. Remi Keisertumswappen', with initials 'I S V S' and dated 1607 on upper cover, different arms with legend 'Insigni ad Ducum et Electo Saxo' on lower cover. The first Camerarius edition, containing the first appearance of the 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, utilised 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 became a convention in scientific botanical illustration only much later, when the taxonomic importance of these details was fully appreciated. Provenance: Dukes of Saxony (see above); Giovanni Casaretto (1812-1879), Italian botanist and traveller, and author of 'Novarum stirpium brasiliensium decades', Genoa 1842; his herbarium is at the Universities of Turin and Genoa. Durling 3029; Hunt 153; Johnston 128; Nissen BBI, 1308.

        Opere di Galileo Galilei linceo nobile fiorentino, Già Lettore delle Matematiche nelle Università di Pisa, e di Padova, di poi Sopraordinario nello Studio di Pisa. Primario Filosofo e matematico del serenissimo Gran Duca di Toscana. In questa nuoua editione insieme raccolte, e di varij Trattati dell'istesso Autore non più stampati accresciute. Al Serenissimo Ferdinando II Gran Duca di Toscana.Bologna: Heredi del Dozza, 1655-56.

      First collected edition of the works of Galileo, edited by Carlo Manolessi, and appearing only a year after his death. This was the edition in which Newton and his later contemporaries read their Galileo. <br/><br/> The volumes contain not only most of the major works written and published over his lifetime, but also substantial unpublished material, both by Galileo himself as well as by his supporters and critics. Many of these items were provided to the editor by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo's friend and disciple, including a number of Galileo's hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and <i>La Bilancetta</i>, his first scientific work, written in 1586. The <i>Dialogo</i> was of course on the Index and was not included in editions of the <i>Opere</i> until 1744. <br/><br/> A feature of this edition is that each work has its own separate title page, imprint and pagination, which has resulted in several copies being broken up, the individual tracts being sold individually. <br/><br/> Carlo & Favaro 251; Cinti 132; Riccardi I 518-9.. 2 vols., 4to (228 x 167 mm), contemporary flexible vellum, fully complete I: pp. [28], 48, 48, [8], 160, [4], 68, 127, [4], 264, 43, including allegorical frontispiece signed Stefano della Bella, engraved portrait of Galileo by Villamoena, and with large folding plate of proportional compass; II: pp. [2], 60, [16], 104, [4], 105-156, 48, [8], 179, [1], [2], 53-106, [2], 103-126, [8], 238 (i.e. 242), [6]. Numerous woodcut diagrams in text (collates as in Cinti, Bibliotheca Galileiana). Some scattered browning to various quires (as usual), light damp stain in the beginning of volume 2, but in general a very good and unsophistaced copy

        A CHOICE OF EMBLEMES AND OTHER DEVISES, FOR THE MOSTE PARTE GATHERED OUT OF SUNDRIE WRITERS, ENGLISHED AND MORALIZED

      Leyden: Christopher Plantyn by Francis Raphelengius, 1586. FIRST PRINTING. The Very Rare 1586 First Edition Of the First Emblem Book Printed in English 222 x 165 mm (8 3/4 x 6 1/2"). 10 p.l., 230 pp. Attractive early 19th century brown straight-grain morocco, the covers and spine compartments edged with triple rules, wide raised bands ornamented with gilt beading, gilt titling on spine, all edges gilt. Plantin compass device on title page and full-page coat of arms (of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester) on verso, foliated initial, woodcut bear in tondo, and 247 FINE EMBLEMATIC WOODCUTS WITHIN TYPOGRAPHIC BORDERS, with accompanying Latin captions, interpretations in English rhyme, and often a Latin verse. With the bookplates of John Landwehr and Fountaine Walker. Moseley, pp. 21-22, 103-09, and illustrations 29-33; Landwehr, "Lowlands" 898; Freeman, pp. 56-61; Praz, p. 535; Lowndes IV, 2908; Brunet V, 1440; Graesse VI, 2, 443. Joints and extremities a bit rubbed, several inoffensive minor abrasions on covers, but the binding still solid and certainly agreeable. Final three leaves lightly soiled and with several small tears and holes carefully repaired (two letters of text touched without loss, two sidenotes and two decorative borders with tiny loss), three other leaves with neatly mended marginal tears (not reaching the text), perhaps a dozen leaves with minor spots or stains worth mentioning, otherwise a surprisingly well-preserved copy internally of a very rare book that, whenever it is found, virtually always appears in wretched condition. This is the really excellent Landwehr copy of the very rare original edition of the first emblem book printed in English, with nearly 250 woodcut emblems. Whitney's collection of emblems is of great interest, as it first introduced English readers to a wealth of material gathered from earlier French and Italian emblem books published by Plantin, such as those of Alciati, Sambucus, Adrianus Junius, and Paradin. Just over 80 percent of the woodcuts were printed from blocks identical with the continental works, which, as Rosemary Freeman notes, "is in some senses its virtue" because Whitney's anthology served in turn as inspiration to later English emblem books. Freeman says that "though none, with the exception of [Henry] Peacham, can compare with Whitney in scale, all clearly showed themselves indebted to his work and all follow the lines which he laid down." Whitney was particularly fond of tales from Greek and Roman history and mythology, and of animal fables, but he also chose to interpret a number of heraldic devices, usually taken from Paradin, such as the shirt displayed to Saladin's troops, or the lion and sword emblem on the ring of Pompey the Great. But however much he borrowed, our author went beyond simply translating the continental interpretations, and whenever possible drew a moral from the emblem in his poems. Moseley indicates that the book is a lot more than just an assemblage of emblems, suggesting that the work is, in fact, making a clear political statement. He writes that the book "is a serious and systematic discussion of the political and moral issues raised by England's campaign in the Netherlands . . . and has a consistent thematic insistence on Justice, Judgement, and the prudence of England's intervention in her neighbour's war." According to DNB, it was from Whitney's book "that Shakespeare gained the knowledge which he evidently possessed of the great foreign emblematists of the 16th century. Whitney's verses are often of great merit, and always manifest a pure mind and extensive learning." Geffrey (or Geoffrey) Whitney (ca. 1548-1601) was educated at Oxford and Cambridge, and served as under-bailiff of Great Yarmouth. He studied at the University of Leyden in 1586, at a time when English troops under the Earl of Leicester were supporting the Dutch war for independence from Spain. Whitney's presence in the Lowlands enabled him to publish his emblem book with the Plantin press, and he dedicated it to Leicester, then a favorite of Queen Elizabeth.

        HISTORIA DE LAS COSAS MAS NOTABLES, RITOS Y COSTUMBRES, DEL GRAN REYNO DELA CHINA...CON UN ITINERARIO DEL NUEUO MUNDO

      Madrid: En casa de Pedro Madrigal, 1586 [but dated 1587 on the colophon page].. Two parts bound in one volume. [12],116; 244,[12] leaves, including one full-page plate. Small octavo. Contemporary calf, rebacked with original gilt backstrip laid down, gilt red morocco label. Binding edgeworn and rubbed, foredge of front board gnawed. Trimmed close, affecting the first work of the title and the running headline in the preliminary material. Ex- lib., with a small ink stamp on the verso of the titlepage and on the colophon page. Faint old stain in upper margin of second part, else quite clean internally. About very good. In a half morocco box. An early edition of Gonzalez de Mendoza, following the first of 1585, and the second and best edition to contain the Espejo narrative of early exploration in the American Southwest. Antonio de Espejo began his exploration of New Mexico in 1583, in the company of Fray Beltran and fourteen soldiers. The ostensible reason for his expedition was to find Fr. Agustin Rodriguez, who had disappeared in that region the previous year, but much more was accomplished than merely establishing the sad fate of the martyred Franciscan. A true wealth of new information about the traversed territory was garnered, and this is the first publication to include notice of that expedition (found in this edition beginning on leaf 165 of the second part). Most editions of this work do not contain the information about Espejo&#39;s New Mexican adventure, and Wagner says that the present edition is only the second with the Espejo narrative, following a Madrid edition of 1586, printed by Querino Gerardo Flamenco. Wagner also notes that many of the errors of that previous edition have been corrected in the present edition, and Palau writes that this edition is considered to be the most complete. Other Americana content in this volume can be found beginning on leaf 147 of the second part, in the section entitled "Itinerario y epitome de todas las cosas notables que ay desde Espana, hasta el Reyno de la China, y de la China a Espana, boluiendo por la India Oriental, despues de auer dado buelta a casi todo el Mundo. En el qual se trata de los ritos, cerimonias, y costumbres de la gente que en todo el ay, y de la riqueza, fertilidad y fortaleza de muchos Reynos, y la descripcion de todos ellos," which is a succinct tour of 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. In addition to the volume&#39;s great Americana content, it offers rich data on China, Japan, the Maluccas (the Spice Islands), and the Philippines. The author (1545-1614) was an Augustinian, but he includes much about the activities of Jesuits and Franciscans, seemingly - and this is notable - in an impartial and unprejudiced manner. Copies of the Spanish language editions of this work that contain the account of the Espejo expedition have become very rare in commerce. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 587/21. JCB (3)I:307-308. PALAU 105499.

Titlepage with a beautifull renaissance caryatid border in woodcut and with the coat of arms of the Duke of Aragon. Title with 2 small stamps. (4),92 leaves + 2 unnumbered leaves (at sign.

The opening initial in the preface has been cut out, with a bit of loss of a few letters on verso.. The very rare first edition, the only edition in the original form, of Collado's famous work, being "the first really detailed, well-illustrated technical manual on both the theory and practice of artillery" (A.R. Hall in Ballistics in the 17th century)."The greatest interest of this work as far as pyrotechnics are concerned is contained in Chapter 11 which is entitled, "Of...fires which can be adopted for use in times of festivity...The text of the 1586 edition describes these items (a line rocket, a vertical and horizontal wheel, and a device called Spanish 'Las Granadas'), but they are not illustrated. This book contains some of the earliest and fullest descriptions of recreative fireworks." (Chris Philip, C 070.4)."Very rare, and one of the earliest works, if not the earliest, dealing exclusively with artillery. The numerous types of cannon figured are of great interest, while the work itself represents a fine specimen of typography." (Sotheran, Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica, vol.

Doue si descriue il sito, & lo stato di quel gran Regno, & si tratta della religione, de i costumi, & della disposition de' suoi popoli, & d'altri luochi pi? conosciuti del mondo nuovo.

      Venezia, Andrea Muschio, 1586. In 8vo piccolo, pp. (70 n.n.), 462, antica leg. in spessa carta muta con titolo manoscritto al dorso, marca al front. (non controllata), iniziali e fregi xil. e istoriati. Prima e rara edizione in volgare della "Storia della Cina". Il padre agostiniano Gonzales de Mendoza (1545 - 1618), ambasciatore in Cina per Filippo II, vicario di Lipari, trasse dai suoi molti viaggi la materia per quest'opera, che contiene un itinerario per le Americhe e, oltre che della Cina, resoconti molto ampi sul Giappone, Canarie, Filippine, India; dove notevoli pure le descrizioni dei viaggi in mare. L'opera, apparsa per la prima volta in spagnolo nel 1585 a Roma, fu il primo testo stampato in Europa con ideogrammi cinesi; venne tradotta in italiano nel 1586 da Francesco Avanzi, scrittore friulano attivo in quegli anni del secolo. In quello stesso anno apparvero numerose edizioni della traduzione italiana (Roma, Venezia, Genova) a riprova dell'enorme successo e circolazione dell' "Historia". Precedono il testo la dedica del traduttore a papa Sisto V e al Lettore, dedica dell'Autore a Ferdinando di Vega - Fonseca e al Lettore. Il testo, un interessante spaccato sulla vita, i costumi e la religiosit? cinese, contiene anche altre descrizioni: del Messico, delle Filippine e di numerose rotte compiute dagli spagnoli, dai missionari francescani e da Ignazio di Loyola per giungere in Cina. Ex libris di appartenenza, normale patina del tempo con uniforme brunimento di talune pagine, ma esemplare in assai buone condizioni. (Adams vol. G, p. 868).
