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

      Madrid, 1587. 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 word 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 and cloth 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'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'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.

        BRITANNIA SIVE FLORENTISSIMORVM REGNORVM, ANGLIAE, SCOTIAE, HIBERNIAE, ET INSVLARVM ADIACENTIUM EX INTIMA ANTIQUITATE CHOROGRAPHICA DESCRIPTIO

      London, 1587. Contemporary vellum, manuscript spine title. Minor toning and soiling, but generally clean internally. Contemporary notations throughout text. Very good. Second edition of the first major topography of Britain. Camden was urged and encouraged to undertake this massive survey by Ortelius. Ten years in the making, the work forced the author to "get some knowledge of the Welsh and Anglo-Saxon languages, to read and read again both native and other historians, many of whose works still remained in manuscript, and to ransack and select from the public records" - DNB. The work was an immediate success, passing through three edition in the first four years. "If Camden was not the first English historian (in the modern sense of the word), topographer and antiquarian, he was certainly the first to relate the three studies, and his BRITANNIA is the first book which shows the need to evaluate sources. It was the revolutionary subject matter, and its even more evolutionary treatment of the subject, which made it at once the vehicle and the model for research in all three subjects for the next two hundred and fifty years" - PMM.

        Artis cabalisticae: hoc est, reconditae theologiae et philosophiae

      per Sebastianum Henricipetri, Basel 1587 - FIRST EDITION thus. Folio. pp. [52], 979, [1]. Roman, Hebrew, Greek and Italic letter. Woodcut printer's device on title and on final verso, woodcut diagram, historiated and floriated woodcut initials in various sizes. Light age yellowing with some marginal spotting, quires a-p lightly browned, small paper flaw restored in very outer blank margin of first three leaves. A very good copy, with good margins, in contemporary vellum over thin pasteboard, yapp edges covers bordered with blind double rule, monogramed F within oval gilt surmounted by crown on upper cover, arms gilt within oval on lower, remains of ties. First edition of the great compendium of Christian cabalistic literature, compiled by Johannes Pistorius, physician to Jacob, Margrave of Baden-Durlach. It contains Judah Abrabanel's Dialoghi di Amore, Archangelus de Burgonuovo's commentaries on the Conclusiones of Pico della Mirandola, and works by Paulus Ricius, De Coelesti Agricultura (1514 – a compilation of texts including Portae Lucis), De Verbo Mirifico, the De Arte Cabalistica of Reuchlin, and the 1480 translation of the Sepher Yetsirah. "This very popular, varied, and lengthy tome of latin translations, ‘Writers of the Cabalistic Arts’, was surely, if there was one, the Norton Reader of Cabala of the Renaissance. It was an anthology of what must have seemed to Pistorius the most important or most accessible (and appealing) cabalistic texts. More volumes were planned, but this is the only one definitely known to have appeared. Nevertheless, there is probably no more important or influential publication on Cababla in the Renaissance, especially from a Christian (however, Lutheran-Protestant) point of view, than this book, which Blau even claims flatly was one of the most popular and widely read religious documents of the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries as well as a major conduit for the diffusion of Christian Cababla in English literature" Philip Beitchman ‘Alchemy of the Word: Cabala of the Renaissance’. See Breichman for a detailed breakdown of the works included in this anthology. The Artis Cabalisticae was widely consulted by Milton and therefore the source of his understanding of cabalistic mysticism (Jewish Encyclopedia 13, p.566). A planned second volume containing Jewish cabalistic works was never realised. Pistorius’ father was a well-known Protestant minister, though Pistorius turned from Lutheranism to Calvinism and then entered the Catholic Church in 1588, becoming a priest in 1591, then vicar-general of Constance until 1594. He was an imperial councillor, cathedral provost of Breslau, Apostolic prothonotary, and in 1601 confessor to the Emperor Rudolph II. His numerous writings against Protestantism, while evincing clearness, skill, and thorough knowledge of his opponents, especially of Luther, are marked by controversial sharpness and coarseness. We have unfortunately not as yet been able to identify the gilt monogramed F on the upper cover or the arms on the lower though they are undoubtedly the arms of a contemporary noble German or Swiss family.

        Daphne

      Antwerp: Abraham Ortelius, 1587. unbound. View. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 14.5" x 19.25". This impressive view of the Daphne (modern day Harbiye), a suburb of the ancient Greek and Roman city of Antioch (Antakya), located on the Orontes River in modern day Turkey, dates to circa 1601. Centered on the temple of Daphne which a dedicated to the Pythian Apollo, the view depicts the "paradise of Daphne", a park of wood and waters, an illustrates a perfect mix of history and myth. The view includes the temple complex surrounded by woods and fields and hills in the distance. The Orontes River can be seen in the left and top of the view. This view is from Ortelius's "Parergon Theatri", a series of historical maps based on ancient geography, published from 1579 onwards, which sometimes appeared as a separate publication and at times were included in the "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". It is in excellent condition with no chips or tears. Stains in the margin, not affecting the image. Minor wormhole over title. Latin text on verso. Abraham Ortelius (1527--1598), a Flemish cartographer and geographer, is widely regarded as one of the important and influential cartographers in history. He is known for his "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum," which was the first modern atlas. This is an uncommon uncolored example of this wonderful view by Ortelius.

        Psalmi, litaniae et preces quae a' Societate Misericordiae sub invocatione Sancti Ioannis Decollati nationis Florentine in Urbe dici solent pro iis qui morte damnati ad supplicium deducendi sunt

      s.e., Romae 1587 - In 16, pp. (8b) + 39 + (9b). Fr. nero e rosso. Bella vignetta inc. all'acq. al fr. raff. San Giovanni Decollato. Testo stampato in nero e rosso. Capilettera figg. Tarletto alle prime 5 cc. Antica cart. rustica. Rarissima raccolta di salmi, litanie e preghiere in lingua latina utilizzati dai membri della confraternita romana della Misericordia per accompagnare i condannati a morte nel momento estremo. Questa confraternita nacque a Firenze alla fine del 1400 con il nome di 'Confraternita di San Giovanni Decollato dei Fiorentini' con lo scopo di confortare i condannati a morte durante gli ultimi istanti di vita, e, una volta giustiziati, di dar loro dignitosa sepoltura. Nel 1490, Papa Innocenzo VIII canonizzo' la loro opera umanitaria con una Bolla Pontificia. La Confraternita divento' quindi 'Privilegia Venerabilis Arciconfraternitas Sancti Joannis Decollati', detta della 'Misericordia della Nazione Fiorentina in Roma'. Il Papa concesse alla confraternita come sede l'antichissima chiesa di S. Maria de Fovea. Alla vigilia di un'esecuzione, i Confratelli uscivano da una porticina della casa dell'Arciconfraternita nei loro sai e mantelli neri, dirigendosi verso le carceri di Tor di Nona o di Corte Savella, al lume di candela, e accompagnati dal suono di una campanella, per annunciare al popolo l'esecuzione dell'indomani. Dopo la lunga veglia notturna, scortavano il condannato, confortandolo fino alla fine. Quindi lo seppellivano nel chiostro della Confraternita, attraverso sette botole i cui coperchi di marmo portano ancora la scritta 'Domine, cum veneris judicare, noli me condemnare'. ITA

        Britannia sive florentissimorum regnorum, Angliæ, Scotiæ, Hiberniæ, et insularum adiacentium ex intima antiquitate chorographica descriptio. Nunc denuo recognita, & plurimus locis adaucta.

      - London, Radulphum Newbury, 1587. 8vo. (16),+ 559,+ (blank),+ 551-648,+ (22) pp. Last blank leaf is missing. Foxing and minor spotting, contemporary marginal notes and underlinings in ink, ink spots on p. 4 and 173. Half calf from the mid 19th-century, spine gilt and blind stamped. Title with owner?s signature of Johan Rosenhane, dated 1613, and from the library of Ericsberg, with its book plate. ESTC S107382. PPM 101 (for the first edition 1586). Carlander II, 42ff. Second edition of Camden?s important work on Britain, with each county described with regards to its archaeology, history and geography. On page 551 a new title-page: ?Hiberniae et insularum Brianniae adiacentium descriptio? It was first printed one year earlier, in 1586, and its success was great. In four years it passed through three London editions, besides a reprint at Frankfort in 1590, and a fourth London edition in 1594. All these editions had the supervision of the author. The Elizabethan antiquarian William Camden (1551-1623) is often regarded as the founder not only of antiquarian studies, but also of the study of modern history (PPM). Namnteckningen är troligen Johan Jöransson Rosenhane till Torp och Haneberg (1571-1624), som tillhörde hertig Carls råd. Han var kansler 1602 och blev ståthållare på Nyköpings slott 1612. Han var far till Schering Rosenhane. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

'This work, dedicated to Robert Devereux, Ear of Essex (1566-1601), is based on a treatise by Levinus Lemnius, the Herbarum atque arborum quae in Bibliis passim obviae sunt . dilucida explicatio, which appeared at Antwerp in 1566. Newton points out in his dedication that his work is not a word-for-word translation and, on occasion where the original lacked clarity or when it was not sufficiently succinct, he made various addtions or omissions. Levinus Lemnius (1505-68), a physician and philosopher of Zeeland, is considered to be the first author to describe the plants of the Holy Scirptures. His herbal ran into many editions and, besides the English version, there is also a French translation.'Thomas Newton (1542?-1607) was a native of Cheshire, and he signed the end of his translation of 1587: "Thomas Newtonus, Cestreshyrius". He as educated at Trinity College, Oxford, and Queens' College, Cambridge, and about 1583 became Rector of Little Ilford in Essex. He was the author of various publications on hisotircal, medical, and theological subjects, and the translator of several Latin works. He was renowned as a writer of Latin verse' (Henrey, I p 36). In fact, he provided a dedicatory Latin poem to the preface of Henry Lyte's translation of Dodoens Cruydeboeck of 1554, which appeared as A nieuue Herball in 1578.Provenance: early signature of a 'Henry Holden' on title; later inscription, 'John Ward, Moston' on flyleaf; pencil markings and annotations to margins of some pagesSTC 15454; Durling 2781 (imperfect); Henrey 230; Wellcome 3719

A very good copy of the first edition of a rare and important travel book. Giovanni Zuallardo (1541-1634) born in Hainaut, Belgium, accompanied the son of a nobleman to whom he was tutor on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1586. This account of his 6 month travels in the Levant contains some of the earliest printed illustrations of buildings and and views of Palestine. Places visited include Venice, Italy, the Tremiti Islands, Southern Mediterranean, Zante, Cyprus, Crete, the surroundings of Bethlehem, Jaffa, Jerusalem and Tripoli. Many of the illustrations were copied by subsequent authors. "A traveller from the Low Countries, Zuallart visited the Holy Land in 1586. The judge, historian and Knight of the Order of the Holy Sepulchre was also a self-taught artist who produced a travel book full of romantic images of the exotic East. His drawings of biblical cities nestling in sand dunes and bathed in sunshine were so accurate and precise that they are still a key source for architectural historians today" London Library.

        The first and second Volumes of Chronicles [The Third Volume]

      London: [by Henry Denham,, 1587]. … now newlie augmented and continued … to the yeare 1586. [Colophon:] Finished in Januarie 1587 … at the expenses of John Harison, George Bishop, Rafe Newberie, Henrie Denham, and Thomas Woodcocke. 3 volumes bound in 2, folio (358 × 237 mm). Bound for exhibition c.1890 in full brown crushed goatskin by Zaehnsdorf (signed in gilt at foot of front turn-ins and with exhibition stamp at foot of rear turn-ins); sides with decorative blindstamped panels incorporating Tudor rose emblems, spines gilt-lettered direct in compartments, others decorated in blind, double raised bands, marbled endpapers, edges gilt on the rough. Black letter, double column; bound without the blanks at the beginning and end of vol. I and the end of vols. II and III, else complete as issued. Of the leaves ordered to be cancelled by the Privy Council (the so-called "castrated" leaves), this copy has all the cancels printed in 1587 to comply with the order, except for vol. III, 6M3?-4 (the trial and execution of Edmund Campion and the Duke of Anjou's progress from London to Antwerp) where the originals survive. Engraved bookplates of Richard Jones, 1707, on titles verso; Money-Coutts family bookplates dated 1889 signed J.D.B., i.e. John Dickson Batten (1860?-1932). Bindings rubbed in places, the occasional minor paper repair not affecting the text. An excellent set. Second, heavily revised and augmented edition of one of the most important English books of the Elizabethan era. The importance of this edition has long been predicated on its value as a Shakespeare source ?- all the conventional English histories, as well as King Lear, Macbeth, and Cymbeline demonstrably depend upon this specific edition ?- but modern scholars also recognise the book as a key product of the emergent English nationalism at the end of the 16th century. Published under royal privilege, and produced with extraordinary care by the best printers and editors available, with contributors including Abraham Fleming, Francis Thynne, and John Stow, it was seen as a national project to reflect English prestige, and carefully edited under political control by the Privy Council (hence the so-called "castrated" leaves). The second edition is vastly expanded, and a huge improvement on the first edition - it is the preferred edition of the book. The ODNB describes it as "a secular equivalent to John Foxe's Acts and Monuments".

      esemplare in discrete condizioni Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida ITALIANO Legatura in piena pergamena rigida coeva, titolo manoscritto longitudinalmente al dorso; carte di guardia di epoca successiva. 24 pagine non numerate compreso il frontespizio,  516 pagine numerate, 1 carta bianca; 142 pagine numerate compreso il frontespizio autonomo;  in questa sezione del volume numerosi quinterni male allocati e quindi non in giusta sequenza. All'interno, alcuni errori di numerazione,  numerose illustrazioni o diagrammi a silografia. Rutilio Benincasa  fu astronomo, astrologo, considerato una sorta di stregone del suo tempo. L'opera fu redatta nel 1587 e stampata per la prima volta nel 1593. Il testo ebbe vasta fortuna tanto da meritare numerose riedizioni  fino al Novecento. Dopo la morte dell'autore, l'Almanacco fu aggiornato da altri personaggi, tra cui il più significativo fu proprio Ottavio Beltrano verso la metà del Seicento, dove egli ridistribuì in cinque parti la materia trattata, aggiornò le numerose tavole e le effemeridi calcolate dal Benincasa, ed aggiunse intere sezioni.  Il testo è un vastissimo repertorio di nozioni che riguardano praticamente   tutte le conoscenze scientifiche e le credenze popolari del tempo quali,  le configurazioni della luna in,  le previsioni astrologiche annuali, le tavole sulla struttura del calendario e sulle feste mobili, la cronologia di tutti gli avvenimenti storici più rilevanti,  un trattato di fisiognomica,  nozioni di anatomia e di astrologia medica,  l'influsso degli astri sull'agricoltura,  nozioni di geografia e cosmografia,  un trattato sull'arte della navigazione e sull'orientamento, nozioni di aritmetica e di geometria. Esemplare in discrete condizioni conservative, una  modesta gora circolare lungo poche pagine, alcune fioriture e lievi tracce d'uso generali, assai frequenti per un testo che era notoriamente soggetto a frequente consultazione per la sua vastità di interessi.

        Il Decameron di messer Giovanni Boccacci cittatin Fiorentino, di nuovo ristampato, e riscontrato in Firenze con testi antichi, & alla sua vera lezione ridotto dal cavalier Lionardo Salviati.

      Qvarta editione. Florence, stamperia de' Giunti, 1587. 4to. (31),+ (blank),+ 585,+ (79) pp. Printer's marks on title page, and twice with the device "Nil candidius" (None more brilliant), on the leaf preceding "Tavola" and verso on last leaf. Richly with historiated woodcut intials. Spotting and foxing. Old marginal notes with ink. Modern full calf, gilt spine with raised bands and green label, gilt boards. Book plate of Gunnar Joos. Adams B2159. Brunet I, 1002. This is the fourth edition of Salviati's revision of the Decamerone. The editor Leonardo Salviati first published his revised text in 1582. The counter-reformation and the inquisition in Italy severely criticised Boccacio's classical work Decamerone for its treatment of the clerics and the church, and for its in general questionable morale. The Decameron was even listed in the Index librorum prohibitorum of 1559. Salviati (1540-89) who was an influential literary critic in Florence made this revision in order to end the suppression of the text and restore its influence

        Die drei Grazien: Aglaia, Euphrosyne und Thalia.

      - Kupferstich, 1587, nach Hendrik Goltzius, auf Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: Wappen mit ligiertem Monogramm JS. 30,2:21,5 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung G, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Krystof, Abb. 20, S. 228, Bl. 8 der Ornatus-Folge; Bartsch 285; Hollstein 244, I (von III). – Vor der Adresse von Visscher. Brillanter, gestochen scharfer Abdruck mit rau zeichnender Plattenkante und etwas Plattenton. Mit feinem Rändchen ringsum. – Bis auf eine schwache Querfalte, einer minimalen Beschädigung der linken unteren Ecke und zwei winzigen Nadellöchlein von ausgezeichneter Erhaltung. Die Rötelzeichnung von H. Goltzius (1558-1617), nach der Matham das Blatt gestochen hat, befindet sich im Kupferstichkabinett in Berlin. Die Komposition gehört in eine thematisch nur lose zusammenhängende, acht Blatt umfassende Folge mit mythologischen und allegorischen Sujets. Die besondere Bedeutung von Goltzius ist u.a. auf seine Entwicklung einer besonderen Stichtechnik zurückzuführen, die die „farbige" Wiedergabe von Gemälden ermöglichte. 1582 eröffnete der erfolgreiche Künstler in Haarlem eine große Stecherschule. Jacob Matham, sein Stiefsohn und Schüler, brachte Goltzius größten Respekt entgegen und bezeichnete ihn in einer Beischrift zu einem 1616 publizierten Stich, der das Porträt des Haarlemer Kupferstechers zeigt, als „Ideal eines großen Geistes und Kopfes" (zitiert aus: Doris Krystof, Werben für die Kunst. Bildliche Kunsttheorie und das Rhetorische in den Kupferstichen von Hendrik Goltzius, Dissertation, Köln 1993, S. 18). Bei dem aus der römischen Mythologie stammenden Motiv der drei Grazien, den Töchtern des Zeus, die für Glanz, Frohsinn und Blüte, kurz Schönheit und Anmut stehen, handelt es sich um eines der beliebtesten Themen der Bildenden Kunst. Sie wurden meist unbekleidet, sich berührend bzw. haltend dargestellt, sowohl einzeln als auch im Gefolge der Venus, des Bacchus oder Apollo.

        L'arte del navigare, con il regimento della Tramontana e del sole;

      [No place:] , 1587. e la vera regola et osservanza del flusso e reflusso delle acque sotto breve compendio ridotta. Manuscript, quarto; 66 leaves followed by 13 leaves with additions in a different, looser hand. 8 full-page illustrations, 4 with volvelles (movable paper figures). With a dedication to Don Pietro Borgia, Prince of Squillace (d. c.1624), dated 1587, and an accompanying sonnet. Contemporary limp vellum sewn on three cords. Some waterstaining throughout, possibly indicating practical use. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box. Unpublished illustrated handwritten manual of navigation in the Levant as well as in the South Seas, representing the state of Italian navigational art in the second half of the 16th century. This is one of the best known Italian navigational manuals of the period. It is probable that Cesareo composed his navigational treatise before 1567 and that several manuscript copies were subsequently produced, of which this is one. Although it was approved for publication by the papal authorities, no printed edition is known. This is precisely the kind of manual that would have been in the hands of the merchant navigators on whose ships the Venetian jeweller Gasparo Balbi famously travelled to India and Arabia during the years 1579?-88, when he made the first European record of Bani Yas, as well as of Abu Dhabi and Dubai by their modern names. The present copy carries a dedication to Don Pietro Borgia, Prince of Squillace, dated 1587. Squillace is on the east coast of Calabria, southern Italy. The modern town was founded as a Byzantine fortress during the Byzantine reconquest of Italy (6th?-8th century CE). During the 10th century it was subject to frequent raids by the Muslims of neighbouring Sicily, who made it for a short time a strong military base. After Arab rule, the city fell under Norman hegemony. In 1445, it reverted to the Aragonese Kings of Naples but passed by marriage to the infamous House of Borgia, who ruled the city as Princes of Squillace from 1494 to 1735. Don Pietro was lineal descendant of Gioffre Borgia (1482?-1516), son of Pope Alexander VI and younger brother of Cesare Borgia and Lucrezia Borgia. The author's surname, Cesareo, is of Sicilian origin. A few other copies of the text are known: a copy formerly in the National Maritime Museum and now MS 562 at the Beinecke Library (72 ff.) is dedicated to Giulio Colonna and dated 1567, while the British Museum holds a copy (74 ff., MS Add. 25882) with a preface and sonnet to Paolo Sforza, dated 1570. Yet another copy is kept at the Vatican (De Ricci, Census, p. 1899: with the ecclesiastical censors' imprimatur, though no printed edition is known), and an anonymous manuscript is in the Library of Congress (Ms. Ac. 4325). It is noteworthy that the majority of surviving copies are dedicated to powerful Italian noblemen. The text here is divided into three parts (other manuscripts have the same material divided into six), the first of which deals with cosmography and navigation in general, navigation by the North Star (with a particularly evocative volvelle including a tiny ocean-going ship that circles the globe from pole to pole); and navigation in the southern hemisphere, by the Southern Cross and the south celestial pole. Part two describes navigation by the altitude of the sun (with extensive examples and tables, including the meridians throughout the Mediterranean), followed by "la regola della navigatione di Levante in ponente per longitudine". Part three is occupied with the action of the tides, including details on the various hazards of the English Channel and the Strait of Messina, and contains a sketch of the man in the moon, controller of tides.

        LES APRES DISNEES DU SEIGNEUR DE CHOLIERES.

      Paris, Jean Richer, 1587.SECOND EDITION 1587 (first was 1585), French text. 12mo, approximately 135 x 80 mm, 5¼ x 3 inches, printer's pictorial device on title page, a few woodcut head - and tailpieces and initials, leaves (8), 291, (1), numbered on rectos only, bound in full crushed olive green morocco, triple ruled gilt borders to covers with tiny gilt flower at corners, gilt rules to spine with small gilt lozenge in compartments, gilt titled red morocco label, all edges gilt, ornate gilt decoration to inner dentelles (turn overs), deep pink endpapers. Spine sunned to a tan colour, otherwise binding in very good state, small armorial bookplate of John Chamier on front pastedown, 2 small pale ink marks on title page, some upper margins trimmed not affecting running title, a few pages lightly age - browned, tiny worm track to lower margin from fo. 93 - 119, small dark spot to fo. 140, no loss of text. Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. Details about the life of Le Sieur de Cholieres (1509? - 1592?) has been the subject of considerable research with little outcome. His family name may have been Dagoneau or Dagonneau and he may have been a lawyer at the parliament of Grenoble. He was certainly an erudite "gentilhomme" and poet who devoted himself to the study of science, literature and art. The discussions he embarks on in Les Apres - Disnees, which are full of information on the customs and manners of his day, are a vehicle for his humour and non - conformism which he claims show him to be a modest pupil of the great Rabelais. In this volume he tackles 9 subjects: 1. Du veiller et du dormir, s'il faut dormer l'apres - disnee; 2. Du Mariage, s'il vaut mieux n'estre marie que de l'estre; 3. De la puissance maritale, ascavoir si le mary peut battre et chastier sa femme; 4. De l'arbre de vie; 5. Du Caquet des femmes; 6. Des Barbes; 7. Des vieillards et des jeunes enfans, s'ils peuvent engendrer; 8. Des Prognostics & predictions Astrologiques; 9. Des lunatiques.
