        De republica libri sex, Latine ab autore redditi, multo quam antea locupletiores.

      Paris: Jaques du Puys, 1586. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (348 x 220 mm). [8], 779 [1], 60 pp. Ttitle with large engraved device, ornamental headpieces and initials, index bound at end. Contemporary limp vellum with yapp edges, spine lettered in ink (vellum soiled and browned, some creasing to covers, tears in yapp edges). Light even browning througout, a few ink spots, occasional ink and crayon markings, minor spotting in places, worm tracks in top margin of few leaves well outside text. Provenance: Giorgio Enrico Levi (armorial bookplate to front pastedown and shelf-mark label to first flyleaf recto). A handsome, wide-margined copy in unrestored contemporary binding. ----Adams B2228; PMM 94 (first French edition). FIRST LATIN EDITION of Bodin's most significant work The Six Books of the Commonwealth (Les Six livres de la République) first published in French in 1576, which represents the summation of legal and political thought of the French Renaissance. It is "the first modern attempt to create a complete system of political science. Its basis was the Politics of Aristotle .., and it was through Bodin that Aristotle's work came to exercise the influence on modern political thinking which has made him the father of modern democracy. Bodin was not content merely to reproduce his master, however; he added considerably from his own experience. Although like most sixteenth-century writers he approved of absolute government, he demanded its control by constitutional laws, in which respect he foreshadowed the development during the seventeenth century of the idea of the 'social contract' .. Thus Bodin was the first to set out clearly the argument round which most political discussion centred in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, that law is merely an expression of the sovereign will, but that where this reposes in an absolute monarch, it must be mitigated by a customary or natural law. When the lawgiver's law becomes unjust, it ceases to be valid and must be resisted." (PMM 94). Very Good.

        Trattato del R. Padre Giorgio Scherer ... Nel quale con uerissime ragioni proua non esser vero, che già sia stato in Roma vna Donna Pontefice.

      In Venetia: Appresso i Gioliti, 1586. 8vo (16 cm; 6.375"). [6], 48, [2] pp. Short refutation making short work of the possibility that Pope Joan ever existed, here translated into Italian from German by Nicolo Pierio. A Jesuit priest and Austrian witch hunter responsible for the Plainacher Witch Affair of 1583 (which led to the only case of witch-burning in Vienna), Scherer (1540–1605) here "proves" there was never a female pope using various sources, including the Bible. It was clearly a popular text, as DeBacker-Sommervogel notes that there were three editions of this translation published in 1586 by three different printers, two in Venice and one in Milan.    The title is printed within an illustrated woodcut border and the text offers illustrated initials plus head- and tailpieces.    Provenance: Bookplate of Avvocato Bubani Francesco and a catalogue clipping (in Italian) on front pastedown.    Of this edition we locate only five U.S. libraries and one Canadian one reporting ownership. One other U.S. library reports owning a different 1586 edition.         EDIT16 CNCE 27780; DeBacker-Sommervogel, VII, 749. Hunter green textured cloth, lightly rubbed and discolored; a few pinpricks and a very short tear to spine. All outer upper corners with waterstaining from two different incidents, two leaves with short tears, and a pinprick hole to one margin; provenance marking as above, two small inked notations on title-page margins, light pencilling on endpapers. => A fascinating subject covered by an interesting author.

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

      Frankfurt: Feyer, 1586. With nearly 1000 contemporarily hand colored woodcuts. First edition, contemporarily colored, of the first edition of Camerarius's version of Mattioli's great herbal. This edition contains 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, 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 first appeared in Camerarius' recension of Mattioli, De plantis epitome utilissima of the same year (which is a different text to 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 Vorred, Camerarius describes in detail the edition history 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 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 tree surrounded by woven fence at center, having motto Wan Gott Wil / Spes, the whole surrounded by the motto Omnia Florebunt Pros piciente Deo; compartment inscribed at bottom left C. S., and at right I. A. Large folio (368 x 235 mm), bound in fine 17th century full calf with crowned monograms to spine compartments, engraved book plate of Fridericus Christophorus Langetl, Iuris Vtriusq. Doctor with inscription to the bottom of the book plate dated 1682 (probably bound then), ff [8], 460, [37:index] (pagination errors: 19 for 18, 198 for 210, 208 for 308, and 405 for 406), the lower margin of the index was repaired before the book was bound with old paper due to natural wear to these pages at the bottom, small damp stain to the inner bottom margin of the first 10 leaves, some very light and uniform browning throughout. A fine and completely unrestored copy.

        Semideorum marinorum amnicorumque sigillariae imagines perelegantes in picturae statuariaeque artis tyronum usum à Philippo Gallaeo delineatae, sculptae et aeditae [suivi de] Nimpharum oceanitidum, ephydridum potamidum, naiadum, lynadumque icones, in gratiam picturae stu diosae...

      THE FIRST EDITION OF THIS VERY RARE COLLECTION OF ENGRAVINGS, comprising two complete full-length series of marine gods and nymphs, published by Philippe Galle in Antwerp. There are a total of 34 plates overall, each 167 by 217 mm., engraved, numbered and titled in the copper plate, as well as two engraved titles. The first series of male gods, entitled Semideorum marinorum amnicorumque sigillariae imagines perelegantes in picturae statuariaeque artis tyronum usum was executed in 1586; while the second series, Nimpharum oceanitidum ephydridum potamidum naiadum lynadumque icons in gratiam picturae studiosae inventutis deliniatae sculptae et editae a philip. Gallaeo, devoted to female divinities, appeared the following year - 1587. A collection entitled Nimpharum icones did appear in 1583, but contains only 17 plates. The final engravings of the Nimpharum bear the signatures of Hiero Wierix and Ioann. Collaert. Bound in contemporary Flemish vellum, ink title to head of spine. Contemporary annotations to the versos of some plates noting the identities of the figures represented. A few tiny wormholes to covers and endpapers, but not serious. Philippe Galle (1537-1612), scion of an engraving dynasty, was one of the most important engravers and publishers of the Dutch school in the second half of the 16th century. A student from 1556 onwards of the erudite humanist Dirck Volkertsz Coornhert (1522-1590) in Haarlem, he succeeded Coornhert as the engraver for the works of Maarten van Heemskerck (1498-1574). The following year, he joined Jerome Cock (1518-1570), a printer, print dealer and publisher of artistic books,  in Antwerp. Galle in turn succeeded Cock as well, establishing himself as one of the principal engravers of his contemporary Pieter Breughel the Elder (1525-1569). At the centre of the engraving trade in Antwerp, Galle's students included Hendrick Goltzius (1558-1617) and Crispin de Passe the Elder (1564-1637). This fine collection of allegories showing the principle deities of the oceans, seas, rivers and streams, was - from a stylistic perspective - like a remarkable synthesis of Nordic naturalism and Italian Mannerism. A journey through Germany, France, and Italy in 1560-61 was no doubt one of the sources of these eclectic influences. The qualities of the muscles of the females figures, reminiscent of Michelangelo, as well as the elongation of the figures (worthy of one of Parmigiano's Madonnas) are testimony of the influence of the Italian High Renaissance and the beginnings of Mannerism. The expressiveness of the faces and complexions of the figures, in the tradition of Schongauer or Dürer, have a quality almost of Verismo, very much representing for their part a German aesthetic.His acuity and concern for the realistic representation of the body and facial expressions are linked to Galle's work as a portrait painter; he engraved from life portraits of a number of his Humanist contemporaries, among them Vesalius, Erasmus, Guillaume Budé and Thomas More. He was also noted as one of the first makers of a collection of portraits of learned men of the 16th century.Throughout both sets of engravings, made up, by turns, of figures inherited from Classical mythology and personifications of various different European waterways, Galle manages to maintain a subtle play of facial features. From the Mediterranean flanks of the Nile (Nilus) to the northern banks of the Thames (Tamesis), the artist shows the diversity of the figures, each seeming to oscillate between Classical idealisation and Realist individualism.The topographical or mythological iconography places each character within their myth or geographical environment - with an obelisk, pyramid and crocodile for the Nile, Neptune (Neptunus) with his trident, Charon's boat traversing the Styx, Nereus (Nereus) surrounded by his daughters the Nereids, Lerne with its Hydra, Glaucos (Glaucus) contemplating Scylla, or Acis melting into the sea under Galatea's gaze Galle's collection is to be placed within the context of the development of allegorical scenes in 16th century art, particularly in the field of emblem books, the Aldine Hieroglyphica of Horapollonius of 1505, and the Iconologia of Cesare Ripa (1593). There is a copy of the two collections of plates that make up the present work in Cambridge (but without a detailed description); the Nipharum icones is recorded in Netherlandish books by Andrew Pettegree and Malcolm Walsby. There is also a copy in Passau, one in the BNF, one in the National Library of Spain and one in the University Library at Erfurt. The University of Liége, which also has a copy, mentions only twelve engravings.The other copies we have been able to locate only have the male suite and are held at the Cultura Fonds Library in Dilbeek, the British Library, and the Bodleian. The Metropolitan Museum in New York, the British Museum and the Rijksmueum hold only a few plates taken from the two series. An extremely rare copy containing both complete sets of engravings, with engraved titles and wide margins in a contemporary Flemish binding.

        Ioan. Sleidani Veri et ad nostra tempora usque continuati

      New edition, revised by Oseas Schadaeus (1586-1626) who was a columnist and editor of historical works. This book appeared for the first time in 1555 under the title De statu religionis and reipublicae Carolo Quinto, Caesare Commeentarii. The copy shown 25 text-portraits out of popes and emperors, headbands and tail-lamp and a figure in-text on page 747. Title frontispiece for each of the four parts and more frontispiece representing the first two allegories, one faith, one of the force, framing the full title of the book. In the upper part, a winged woman with the scepter and the imperial orb overlaps the world, accompanied by the caption "Germania domitrix Gentium."Contemporary binding in full vellum, flat spine decorated head of a security pen. Back slightly cracked in two places at the head and cracked tail, discreet mark of an old bookplate pasted previously on the first contreplat. Small burn with tiny lack of text between columns 498 and 499, a few waterstains in lower margin slips on some minor, very small burn without noticeable lack of the portrait of Gregory XIV between columns 380 and 381.This is one of the many editions of De statu religionis and reipublicae, published in 1555, major work by Jean Sleidan (v.1506-1556), Luxembourg historian. Employee of the cardinal du Bellay in the 1540s, he participated in the diets of Regensburg and Speyer and rallied to Protestant ideas, he moved to Strasbourg to escape the action of Francis I taken against Protestants. This contemporary of his life is crucial for writing what would become the Veri and ad usque tempora NOTRA continuati: indeed, he offers in this book a political-historical study of the Reformation through the portraits of religious figures (Popes) and policies (emperors) of the time. Due to its position in favor of Protestants, it is impossible to consider her about a perfectly objective eye; Nevertheless, the methodological quality of his work, who was a contemporary and an actor of the reported events, making it a reference for the history of the Reformation.Beautiful copy, richly illustrated.

        Innalzamento dell'Obelisco Vaticano

      1586. Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1586, monogrammate in lastra. Da un disegno di Giovanni Guerra. Bellissima prove, incisa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Tiratura del XVII secolo, con il bordo decorato ridotto. Per la sistemazione di Piazza San Pietro, il neo eletto papa Sisto V commissionò i lavori all'architetto svizzero Domenico Fontana, nel 1585. Per l'abbellimento della piazza venne trasportato da un altro sito della città, un obelisco egizio. L'opera, di alta ingegneria per l'epoca, produsse un grande interesse, culminato dalla pubblicazione dello stesso Fontana del 1590, il celebre Della trasportatione dell'obelisco Vaticano et delle fabriche di Nostro Signore Papa Sisto V, fatte dal caualier Domenico Fontana architetto di Sua Santita. Le incisioni contenute nel libro, raffiguranti il lavori, furono affidate a Natale Bonifacio. Sebbene le illustrazioni per il libro del Fontana furono pubblicate solo nel 1590, il Bonifacio fu coinvolto nell'evento ben prima; nell'agosto del 1586 infatti egli eseguì le due grandi lastre che descrivevano le operazioni di trasporto ed innalzamento, da disegni di Giovanni Guerra (1540-1618). Queste opere furono edite come lavori indipendenti, probabilmente come souvenir del grande evento. In seguito sono ristampate ed incluse nel Theatrum Italiae di Johannes Blaeu. Etching and engraving, 1586 circa, signed with monogram on plate. After a drawing of Giovanni Guerra. Beautiful work, printed on contemporary laid paper, minor paper tears perfectly repaired, otherwise in excellent condition. When St. Peter's square was reorganized, the newly elected pope Sixtus V commissioned the job to the Swiss architect Domenico Fontana, in 1585. To decorate the square, an Egyptian obelisk was taken from another square in town. This fact was considered to be extremely in the van for the time and it arose great interest in the public which led to the publication, by Fontana himself, of the famous Della trasportatione dell'obelisco Vaticano et delle fabriche di Nostro Signore Papa Sisto V, fatte dal caualier Domenico Fontana architetto di Sua Santita, in 1590. Natale Bonifacio was commissioned the engravings of the book which depicted the works. Though the illustrations of Fontana's book were published only in 1590, Bonifacio was involved in their preparation. In August 1586 he actually realized two big plates depicting the transportation and the rising of the obelisk, after some drawings of Giovanni Guerra (1540-1618). These plates were published as independent works, probably as souvenir of the great event and afterwards reissued and included in Johannes Blaeu's Theatrum Italiae.

        Le Théâtre des divers cerveaux du monde ( ). Traduict d'italien, par G.C.D.T. [Gabriel Chappuis].

      - Paris, Felix Le Mangnier, 1586. In-12, plein maroquin, dos lisse orné d'un décor de compartiments garnis de filets et palettes dorés, pièce de titre de maroquin olive, double filet d’encadrement sur les plats, filet sur les coupes, dentelle intérieure (rel. vers 1720), 268 [i.e. 266] f. (nbr. erreurs de foliotation). Première traduction française, par Gabriel Chappuis, de 'Il Theatro de vari e diversi cervelli mondani' (Venise, 1583), édition partagée avec Jean Heusé. Dans ce classique de la psychologie à la Renaissance, l’auteur tente une approche typologique pionnière du cerveau humain. Il met en relation sa conformation (taille, volume, place) avec des comportements associés (55 catégories et sous-catégories recensées): "paisibles, hardis & belliqueux, joviaux, subtils, savants, instables, diaboliques, débiles, vicieux mélancholiques, alquimistes, d’astrologues, etc." et esquisse une description des régions fonctionnelles du cerveau. Par ce biais, Garzoni fait également œuvre de moraliste, en cette dernière moitié du XVIe siècle. Il est aussi l’auteur d’un autre ouvrage précurseur dans l’histoire de la psychiatrie: ‘L'Hospital des fols incurables’. (Brunet, II, 1497. H. Schüling, 'Bibliogr. der psychologischen Literatur des 16 Jahrhunderts’, 132. Brunet, II, 1497. Durling, 2009.1-2010. ‘Traducteurs tourangeaux de la Renaissance’, expo. B.M.

Vermutlich handelt es sich um einen zeitgenössischen polnischen Ketteneinband, der während der schwedischen Regentschaft (Sigmund III, 1586) nach Schweden gelangte. Auf dem Vorderdeckel mit montiertem Pergament-Titelschild: "Ser. meffert. pars. hiema."

Auf dem vorderen Innendeckel eine Titelaufnahme des Frankfurter Antiquariats Baer (nicht dieses Exemplar), von fremder Hand datiert mit 6/10 30, mit Angaben zur Entstehungs- und Editionsgeschichte, sowie das Wappen-Exlibris eines Victor v. Stedingk ("Pomerania 1256 - Suecia 1944") auf Vorsätzen längere hs. Glossen in Schwedisch (Kollation, Edition, Kaufvermerk aus Karlskrona 1922 etc.) meist in Bleistift, darunter der Hinweis, dass es sich bei diesem Exemplar um eine "Kriegsbeute" aus Braunsberg im Ermland/Ostpreußen (heute Braniewo) handelt. Vom Meissener Prediger Meffreth (um 1443, gest. nach 1476) ist fast nur das bekannt, was er in den Prologen seiner Schriften selbst dargestellt hat (vgl. ADB 21, 175f). Seine Stellung ist, trotz der weiten Verbreitung seiner Schriften vom 15. bis 17. Jhdt, bis heute nicht unumstritten: "It is quite impossible to read these sermons without feeling that the preachers great object has been the exhibition of his own ingenuity and learning, not the saving of the souls of his hearers." (Sabine Baring-Gould, in: Wikisource, Post-Mediaeval Preachers/Meffreth, 27. Apr. 2016) Wie immer Baring-Gould zu ihrem Verdikt eines verabsolutierten Narzißmus gelangen mag, der jedenfalls als argumentum ad personam, nicht aber ad theologiam gelten kann, sei dahingestellt, anerkennt sie aber nolens volens Meffreths Gelehrsamkeit, der als Prediger berühmt war, obwohl, wie sie darstellt, er seinen Hörern die Erlösung durch die Gnade der letzten Ölung nicht und niemals gewährte. Seine humane Relativierung des Marienkultes brachte ihm den Vorwurf der Häresie ein: "Weil er die Jungfrau Mariam nicht von der Erbsünde befreyet hielt, wolte ihn Jo. de Lapide einer Ketzerey beschuldigen." (Jöcher III, 353) Umso bemerkenswerter deshalb die mehrfache Bezugnahme auf Maria bei der Einbandgestaltung. Das Exemplar der Augsburger StB hat einen Besitzeintrag mit dem Datum 1485, ist also vorher erschienen ein Kolophon hat vorliegende Ausgabe nicht KVK (Nov. 2016) listet einen Census von 101 Exemplaren oder Fragmenten in öffentlichen Sammlungen auf, darunter auch Kriegsverluste (z.

        Traicté des chiffres, ou Secretes manieres d'escrire.

      - Paris, Abel L'Angelier, 1586. In-4 (230 x 172 mm), plein vélin rigide cordé à petits rabats (reliure de l'époque), (1) f. blanc, 343 f., (3) p. d’achevé d’imprimer, privilège et d'errata, titre et impression dans le corps du texte en rouge et noir, figure gravée sur cuivre au v° du titre à la devise de l'auteur, bandeaux, fleurons et culs-de-lampe, environ 140 tableaux, alphabets et diagrammes dans le texte, la plupart imprimés en rouge et noir, 6 planches dépliantes ou doubles hors texte. Edition originale de premier tirage de ce traité fondamental dans l’histoire de la cryptographie moderne, dont le dispositif fondé sur un algorithme révolutionnaire ne fut cassé que près de 300 années plus tard par Charles Babbage et l’officier prussien Friedrich Kasiski (1863). L’ouvrage est également cité comme un "traité de kabbale de premier ordre" (Caillet) mais aussi comme "un manuel d'épigraphie ancienne, moderne et exotique" et l'un des premiers livres imprimés européens s’intéresser à l'écriture chinoise et japonaise, même si, étrangement, la feuille qui devait être consacrée à ces caractères reste vide dans tous les exemplaires connus de ce premier tirage (p. 327). Né à Saint-Pourçain, homme de lettres, poète et traducteur Blaise de Vigenère (1523-1596) pratiquait un grand nombre de langues anciennes et modernes. Alchimiste, mathématicien, kabbaliste, archéologue, important diplomate, historien, secrétaire de la Chambre du Roi, ce contemporain de Michel de Montaigne laissa une œuvre immense. (Adams V.743. J. Balsamo et M. Simonin, ‘Abel L’Angelier & Françoise de Louvain Galland', n° 167. Caillet, III, n° 11159. J.-S. Galland, ‘Bibliography of the Lit. of Cryptography’, 193. 'Blaise de Vigenère, poète et mythographe au temps de Henri III', Cahiers V.L. Saulnier n° 11). Restaurations et quelques taches aux deux premiers feuillets sans perte de texte. 2 petits trous à la page 2. Auréoles claires et rousseurs éparses. Bon exemplaire grand de marges, très bien relié, conservé dans sa première reliure de vélin rigide. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ratio atque Institutio Studiorum per Sex Patres ad id jussu R.P. Praepositi Generalis deputatos conscripta

      Woodcut Jesuit emblem on title within a typographical frame. Text printed throughout in italic. Ruled in red. 2 p.l., 330, [4] pp. 8vo, bound in a superb inlaid mosaic "à répétition" morocco binding with a navy blue base & a large gilt decor of red, citron, & pale brown morocco onlays of stars & quatrefoils, spine similarly decorated, pink silk endpapers, attributable to Nicolas-Denis Derôme (full description below), a.e.g. Rome: "in Collegio Societatis Jesu," 1586. The extremely rare first publication by the Jesuits written to establish a plan of studies meant for layman as well as priests, which included for the first time the humanities - literature, history, drama, etc. - as well as the traditional clerical fields of philosophy and theology. This dramatic change made clear that the literary and humanistic program of the Renaissance was compatible with the Scholastic program of the Middle Ages. The Ratio Studiorum, an exposition of principles, standardized on a global basis the highly influential system of Jesuit education which continued for centuries. Their commitment to education had great ramifications for both the Jesuit Order as well as the entire Catholic Church. The present copy, printed only in 100 or 120 copies, is bound in a magnificent mosaic binding attributable to Nicolas-Denis Derôme and comes from the library of Paul Girardot de Préfond, with his characteristic morocco bookplate. Our copy also contains annotations by the German Jesuit priest Jakob Rem (1546-1618), with the ownership inscription on title (quite faded because the title was lightly washed at the time of binding) "Colleg. Ing. Soc. Jesu. Ad usum P. I. Rhami" ("Ingolstadt Secondary School. For the use of P. J. Rem."). All copies of this edition were ordered to be burned in 1599, hence its great rarity. "During the generalate of Claudio Acquaviva (1581-1614), the educational methods of the Society were finally formulated. In 1584 six experienced schoolmen [the Spanish Juan Azor, the Portuguese Gaspar Gonçalves, the Scottish James Tyrie, the Dutch Peter Buys, Antoyne Goyson, born in the Spanish Netherlands, and the Italian Stefano Tucci], selected from different nationalities and provinces, were called to Rome, where for a year they studied pedagogical works, examined regulations of colleges and universities, and weighed the observations and suggestions made by prominent Jesuit educators."-Catholic Encyclopedia. In 1586, they issued the present work, a trial document, which was printed for private review in a very limited number and sent out to all twenty-one Jesuit provinces. After accumulating responses from the five most eminent Jesuits from each province, a revised Ratio Studiorum was issued in 1591, which again received reviews from the Jesuits educators from around the world. Finally, in 1599, the final and definitive Ratio Studiorum was issued. This is extremely rare book. Only a limited number of copies were originally printed - between 100 and 120 - for the Order's internal use. When the definitive version of the Ratio Studiorum was printed in 1599, a letter dated March 29, 1599 written by Superior General Claudio Acquaviva ordered that all previous editions be gathered and burned. This rarity was so well-known in the 18th century that Guillaume François De Bure at first thought that there was only one copy, as he states in his Avertissement in the sale catalogue of Girardot de Préfond's first collection (1757): "the obliteration was so scrupulous that only a single copy exists which we have carefully preserved at the library of the Dominicans of Toulouse" (p. xiv of the Avertissement). In his famous Bibliographie instructive, he dedicates a very long comment to this banned book (1764, item 1008, pp. 65-71). De Bure ended up locating seven more copies. Bound-in at the end is a one-page handwritten questionnaire, which accompanied copies of the Ratio Studiorum when sent out to Jesuit provinces. The Ratio Studiorum was very much a work in progress, making the presence of annotations natural in this copy. The German Jesuit Jakob Rem was Prefect of studies at the Dillingen and Munich schools before being appointed under-regent to the school in Ingolstadt where he lived from 1586 till his death. He was one of the great figures of the Order of the Jesuits in the early 17th century and knew General Claudio Acquaviva very well. He was, no doubt, one of the original recipients of a copy in 1586. Rem and the General had been friends since they were novitiates in Rome. BINDING: Paul Girardot de Préfond, one of the great bibliophiles of the 18th century, came from a family of timber merchants. He very much appreciated fine bindings and, following the sale of his first collection in 1757, was able to afford a second, even better collection, for which he often resorted to the best binders of the day such as Padeloup or Derôme. However, coming under pressure from his creditors in 1769, he was forced to sell his entire second collection to Count Justin Mac Carthy-Reagh. This copy was not present in the sale catalogue of the first library of de Préfond. It might be the copy described in the sale catalogue of Mac Carthy-Reagh (1815) which describes a copy (lot 1208): "mar. citron à compartimens [=mosaic], tabis, l.r. [lavé, réglé]." While the base leather of our copy is navy blue, citron morocco forms the predominant color of the onlays. It is therefore difficult to establish to which collection assembled by Girardot de Préfond this copy of Ratio Studiorum belongs. "Mosaic bindings, with their variety of colors and extravagance of design, seem to have been reserved for special religious books of octavo or smaller form, for rare and controversial works, and for volumes connected with special occasions. Few are signed."-Barber, Waddesdon Printed Books and Bookbindings, p. 203. The all-over mosaic "à répétition" decor, initially created by Antoine-Michel Padeloup in the 1720s, was very fashionable through the 1760s. Attributing the binding to Derôme can be deduced from the presence of a fine roulette frame on the insides (contreplat). Jacques-Antoine Derôme (who died in 1760) used the roulette, followed by his son, Nicolas-Denis (master in 1761) for nearly fifty years. Moreover, the characteristic of the Derômes' style is found here: the decor of the binding was done in fillet, freehand, and with the use of very few tools. Two tools from this workshop are visible here: a small palmette (G. Barber, List 7, tool 69) and a dashed (en pointillés) rouelle. They can also be seen on the binding with a decor very similar to a Giordano Bruno preserved at Aix-en-Provence (see L.-M. Michon, pl. XXXV), which also has the same frame roulette as the Ratio Studiorum. Finally, the frame roulette and the small palmette are found on a 1709 Nouveau Testament preserved at Waddesdon Manor (W.Cat. 569, ill. on p. 128 and 289) and bound, according to Giles Barber, between 1760 and 1765, "possibly by N.D. Derôme." In fine and fresh condition. Joints very slightly rubbed and with one short crack at foot of upper joint. Preserved in a box. ?
