        The Holy Bible Containing the Old Testament and the New: Newly Translated Out of the Originall Tongues and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared

      Christopher Barker, London 1588 - We offer a Geneva Bible, often referred to as the Breeches Bible, in remarkably sound and clean condition for its age. It is handsomly bound in full leather with five raised bands on spine and with metal corners and clasps; the sturdy boards, with blind decoration and a decorative metal design at centre, are original, but the leather spine is of a later date. The title-page, which is printed on old paper, is probably of a later date too. This is followed by a section of prayers and psalms prior to the complete Old Testament. This initial section is dated 1586 and printed by John Wolfe for Richard Day, rather than by Christopher Barker who printed the Old and New Testaments; the New Testament has an attractive decorative title-page dated 1588 whereas this appears to be lacking in respect of the Old Testament, which has no title-page of its own in this copy. The Old and New Testaments comprise 555 pages; they are followed by a section entitled 'Two Right Profitable and Fruitfull Concordances' printed by Christoper Barker in 1588, and an edition of 'The Whole Booke of Psalmes' printed by John Woolfe, once again for Richard Day, in 1586; this final section has 98 pages. The substantial binding is a little rubbed but is otherwise totally sound; the metal ornamentation is also sound. The flyleaf and first prelim page are rather fragile and a bit ragged with slight loss down the foredge; the same is true of the title-page. The early pages of the section of Prayers that follows are extremely fragile and darkened too with slight loss down the foredge and along the top edge; the later pages of the same section are in better condition overall and the text remains clean, but the final page of this section has an oblique tear from the corner along the bottom edge, although there is no loss of text or of the tail piece at the foot of the page. The body of the biblical text is in remarkably clean condition overall with just occasional darkening and with the odd stain, In the text, from the New Testament onwards, there are however just a few old worm holes. On the verso of the title-page of the New Testament is an inked Note, written horizontally, by the Bible's owner. The note dated April 1746 was penned by Samuell Brook, who states in an inspired way:'This being my last legacy my Grandmother left me to read and practise for my Soul's health. She was a good patron and instructor and by her godly life, she was a lively example of piety; exhorting me to read, understand and practise; for that is the way to be a wise man. She died in the 89 year of her age. This book being in the family an hundred and three score years.' Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

He studied medicine in Paris, where he took the degree of doctor, and then became a pupil of the botanist Valerius Cordus (1515-1544) at Wittenberg University, with whom he travelled in Germany. On his return to France he was taken under the patronage of Cardinal de Tournon, who provided him with the means for undertaking an extensive scientific journey. Starting in 1546, he travelled through Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt, Arabia and Palestine, and returned in 1549. In his book he describes the flora and fauna he encounters on his journey, antiquities and towns, and also the peoples and their lives and customs. Many illustrations show unusual animals and plants, 5 are of snakes, 1 shows a small dragon, the only one not based on observation.

        Certaine advertisements out of Ireland, concerning the losses and distresses happened to the Spanish Navie, upon the West coasts of Ireland in their voyage intended from the Northern Isles beyond Scotland, towards Spaine

      London I. Vautrollier for Richard Field 1588 - Small Quarto. 18cm x 13cm. 19pp. First edition (in setting that collates A-B). Beautifully bound in quarter pigskin over marbled boards to style, pink title label. new endpapers. Internally clean and bright. Woodcut printer's device to title page. Blind stamp of North Library to title page; from the Tony Sweeney collection. Woodcut headpiece to Aii. A scarce contemporary account issued anonymously by the Chief Advisor (or Spymaster if we're being blunt) of Elizabeth I, regarding the destruction of the Spanish Armada and the subsequent annihilation of many of its survivors who were despatched on the beaches of Galway by the local populace. The final two leaves detail the ships lost and their crews in 1588 with an additional list of men and ships lost in the two months preceding. Apart from the fascinating period detail and providing an understanding of the professional and detailed nature of the Elizabethan propaganda machine under Cecil, this ephemeral pamphlet rarely seen at all (only two or three copies in auction since 1961), occasionally seen bound with "A Copie of A Letter Sent Out of England." provides a harrowing account of what the enemies of the crown could expect when washing up on the shores of the scepter'd isle: "He inviteth also that there was at the same time another great ship cast away in Tereawley.and all the residue of that ship are slain and drowned.Meleghlen Mac Cab, A Galloglasse, killed 80 of them with his Galloglasse axe." When it comes to the defending the shores of Britain from invaders, apparently there is no such thing as bad publicity. A scarce and fascinating survival. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Double column Greek and Latin text, woodcut device on title. 17th century morocco, binding restored, regilded and rebacked, red-dyed edges with ink spotting at fore-edge. Text little browned throughout, some scattered foxing, few pages with minor paper repairs at fore edge, mild dampstaining to pp. 449-52, two leaves in signature ss misbound. Very good copy. ---- PMM 102 (this edition); Adams T667; Renouard, Estienne, 152-153; Schreiber, Estienne, 216; Dibdin II, 506. - Second Estienne edition. Thucydides recognised that the Peloponnesian war was the event of greatest importance in the history of Greece and he devoted himself to recording it in the belief that knowledge of the past is the best guide to the future. With De bello Peloponnesiaco Thucydides established the highest historical methods and standards, limiting his sources to either personal knowledge or verifiable witnesses in order to present as accurate and objective a picture of the event as possible and thus to provide a 'possession for all time'. It is our only record of the history of that war. The Estienne 1588 edition is "generally considered the best 16th-century edition of the greatest historian of Athens. For this new edition Estienne has corrected the Greek text and scholia, as well as further revised Valla's Latin translation, which is now printed on the same page with the Greek text in parallel columns, while the Greek scholia are printed at the foot of the page" (Schreiber). The printining place is uncertain. PMM states Geneva as place whereas Dibdin mentions the work as being printed in Paris. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Historia della Chiesa di Monreale

      Luigi Zanetti. Due opere in un volume in 4to (mm. 217x152). Lello: pp. [12], 48; [4], 136; [4], 94, [14]. Segnatura: ✝6 A-F4; π2 A-R4; 2✝2 a-m4, 2a4 2b2. Bianche le carte P4 e m4. Armi del dedicatario Ludovico de Torres, vescovo di Monreale, al frontespizio. Stemma papale con motto "In fide et lenitate" a c. ✝3v, π2v e 2✝1v.Con oltre 40 stemmi e sigilli araldici incisi in legno nel testo. Esiste una variante di questa edizione recante un bifolio finale composto da una carta di errata e da una carta bianca. Con due note manoscritte coeve sul margine delle carte L3v e O1r. Arca: pp. 56. Segnatura: A-G4. Armi del Torres al titolo ed 4 legni araldici nel testo. Pergamena floscia coeva con tracce di legacci. Piccoli segni di tarlo nel margine interno bianco di una quarantina di carte al centro del volume ben lontano dal testo, alcuni fascicoli un po' arrossati, ma nel complesso ottima copia di assoluta genuinità. I. Prima edizione. L'opera si compone di tre parti: Descrittione del Real Tempio, et Monastero di Santa Maria Nuova di Monreale (già pubblicata a Roma da Francesco Zanetti nel 1588), che descrive il monastero da un punto di vista architettonico ed storico-artistico, ivi comprese le modifiche apportate alla fine del XVI secolo; Vite de gli Arcivescovi, Abbati, et Signori di Monreale; ed infine Sommario de i privilegi dell'Arciuescovato di Monreale, ossia l'elenco dei privilegi concessi da imperatori, pontefici e re alla diocesi di Monreale dal 1174 al 1592. Il libro fu pubblicato sotto il nome del Lello, poeta, matematico e segretario al servizio del cardinale Ludovico de Torres, più tardi arcivescovo di Monreale, ma molti repertori ne attribuiscono in realtà la paternità a quest'ultimo. II. Prima edizione. Questa seconda opera, benché venduta a parte, risulta molto spesso legata insieme a quella del Lello. In alcuni esemplari si trova unita all'opera una mappa xilografica della diocesi di Monreale, incisa nel giugno del 1597 da un certo Ludovico Rondanini per conto del Torres (Descrittione dell'Arcivescovato di Monreale con le sue Terre, e di tutto il Territorio diviso in settantatre Feghi...), che in realtà fu stampata separatamente.

La prima versione in volgare dell'opera, pubblicata in latino nel 1527 (Antiquitates urbis per Andream Fulvium antiquarium nuperrime aeditae, da non confondersi la descrizione in versi dell'Urbe, che è del 1513), risale al 1543; la presente edizione è la prima con gli ampliamenti e le annotazioni di Girolamo Ferrucci. Andrea Fulvio (Palestrina, 1470-Roma, 1527), umanista, erudito e antiquario, fu studioso benemerito della storia, della topografia e dell'arte di Roma antica, massimo promotore cinquecentesco, con Flavio Biondo, di tali studi storico-archeologici.

        1588 1st Phytognomonica Porta Botany Plants HERBAL Illustrated Cures Medicine

      Neapoli : Apud H. Saluianum, 1588. First edition. - 1588 1st Phytognomonica Porta Botany Plants HERBAL Illustrated Cures Medicine The earliest issue of Giambattista Della Porta’s ‘Phytognomonica’ – a very rare first edition! This book was the first book to classify plants according to their habitats, a classification that came before Linnean taxonomy. Theories state that Porta was the first to give classification to plants. The dozens of illustrations within ‘Phytognomonica’ are helpful in determining the plants and seeds that Porta had the most exposure to. This book, while topically a botanical reference, includes herbs that are known cures, animal bites and stings that have healing properties, plants to cure male baldness, and other remedies. Use of red roses and coral being effective against hemorrhages; rhubarb, saffron, and lemon are cures for bile, Arber notes that ‘Phytognomonica’ had a direct influence on the work of 17th-century herbalists and their theories on botany.

Egidio Albornoz (1310-1367) cardinale spagnolo, fu condottiero e uomo politico centrale nelle vicende del Trecento italiano. Nominato cardinale nel 1350 da papa Clemente VI, dopo due anni fu incaricato da Innocenzo VI di restaurare l'autorità papale nei territori della Chiesa in Italia. Alla guida di un piccolo esercito di mercenari Albornoz riconquistò il Lazio, Spoleto, la Marca anconitana, la Romagna e Forlì. Le sue celebri Costituzioni, emanate nel 1357 per gli Stati Papali, rimasero in vigore fino al 1816. Gaspare Cavallini, originario di Cingoli nelle Marche, fu autore della glossa al testo egidiano intorno al 1570. Cfr. Iccu; non in Sapori. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Guia de Peccadores, en la qual se trata copiosamente de las grandes riquezas y hermosura de la virtud, y del camino que se ha de llevar para alcançarla. Este libro christiano lector, sale agora nuevamente añadido con la Epistola de Eucherio, y emendado, y quasi hecho otro nuevo por el mismo Author. Y tambien en esta impression va añadida de nuevo una muy copiosa Tabla de materias de todos los Evangelios del Año.

      En Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. - in-folio. 4ff. 244pp. 2ff. Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition imprimée à Barcelone de ce traité de morale du dominicain espagnol Luis de Granada (1505-1588), l'un des grands textes classiques de la littérature ascétique espagnole. Sa première publication remontait à l'année 1556 et, condamné par l'Inquisition en raison de sa tonalité novatrice, il fut mis à l'Index en 1559. "Ecrivain précis et coloré, Luis de Grenade dispose d'une phrase ample et lente, imitée de l'art oratoire classique. Dans son argumentation, il a souvent recours aux subtilités de la scolastique; mais lorsqu'il décrit la misère du pécheur ou les ravissements de la vie spirituelle, sa prose se fait agile, poétique et extraordinairement docile à l'expression de ses sentiments" (Laffont Bompiani). "Esta obra, y el Libro de la Oración y Meditación, son las más célebres y leídas de Fr. Luis de Granada. Tanto es así, que es frecuente entre los bibliófilos, y en las tertulias que se originan en las librerías de viejo, recordar los innumerables casos de célebres personajes calificados de heterodoxos, y sin embargo seducidos por el admirable estilo y las riquezas literarias de la Guia de Pecadores y el Libro de la Oración y Meditación" (Palau). "The best known of his ascetical writings, and the one that achieved the greatest measure of success, is "The Sinner's Guide" (La Guia de Pecadores). ( ) It is marked by a smooth, harmonious style of purest Spanish idiom which has merited for it the reputation of a classic, and by an unctuous eloquence that has made it a perennial source of religious inspiration. It has been most favourable compared with A Kempis's Imitation of Christ. Within a comparatively short time after its first appearance it was translated into Italian, Latin, French, German, Polish, and Greek" (Encyclopaedia Catholica). Titre imprimé en rouge et noir, avec la belle marque de l'imprimeur. Trace de mouillure angulaire dans la marge du fond. Bon exemplaire. Palau, 107595.

Bella legatura coeva in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso. Alone alle prime ed ultime (in questo caso assolutamente marginale) cc., qualche trascurabile e sporadica fioritura, peraltro esemplare fresco e marginoso, nel complesso ben conservato. Uberto Foglietta (1518-1581), celebre storico genovese, scrisse fortunate opere sulla storia della città ligure, denunciando gli abusi dell'antica nobiltà locale. Allontanato dalla Repubblica, fu in seguito al servizio di Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia e del cardinale Ippolito d'Este. Revocato il bando, nel 1576 rientrò a Genova, dove fu nominato storiografo della Repubblica. Quest'opera raccoglie gli elogi di oltre 150 illustri personaggi genovesi e liguri. Non comune. Cfr.

Ottima legatura ottocentesca in cart. rigido con titoli in oro su tassello al dorso. Esemplare ben conservato. Pietro Aretino (1492-1556), fu autore tra i più controversi e scomodi del Rinascimento, tanto da meritarsi l'appellativo dell'Ariosto che lo definì "il flagello dei principi".

Le livre fut mis à l'Index en 1559, peu après sa parution en 1554 à Salamanque, et il valut à son auteur de sérieux démêlés avec l'Inquisition dirigée par Melchor Cano. "Los teólogos contemporáneos de la Reforma miraban con ojeriza los libros de devoción en lengua vulgar inclusos los de Fr. Luis de Granada, y ésta fué la causa de la prohibición de la Guia de Pecadores y la Oración y Meditación" (Menendez y Pelayo, cité par Palau).
