GRANADA (Luis de).
Con licencia en Barcelona, por Francisco Trincher, 1588. in-folio. 6ff. 121pp. (i.e.119). + 186pp. 1f. + 249pp. (i.e.247). Demi-vélin moderne genre ancien. Rare édition barcelonaise de cet ouvrage du dominicain espagnol Luis de Granada (1505-1588), initialement publié en 1561 à Lisbonne. "L'influence des écrits de Louis de Grenade est encore très mal connue, mais il est hors de doute qu'elle fut durable. Très apprécié par saint Charles Borromée, sainte Thérèse d'Avila et Saint Pierre d'Alcantara, ses contemporains, il fut l'une des principales sources d'inspiration de Saint François de Sales" (Laffont Bompiani). Le présent texte fut notamment l'un de ceux édités en chinois aux Philipines au début du 17e siècle par les missionnaires espagnols. Belle marque de l'imprimeur Jaume Cendrat sur le titre et au verso du dernier feuillet. Titre en rouge et noir. Réparation ancienne dans le blanc du titre où une fenêtre avait été découpée. Mouillure angulaire à la fin du volume, quelques rousseurs et autres salissures. Palau, 107920 (avec un autre nom de libraire).

Antique print, titled: 'CLXXXIII L' Artisicio di quest' altra sorte di machina e ancora piu potente della predetta', An intricate device used for pulling objects in the horiztonal plane. Several sets of pulleys powered by interlocking gears are driven by two men turning a large wooden winch. Engraving on hand laid (verge) paper. Description: This print originates from a rare, monumental and valuable book: 'Le diverse et artificiose machine del Capitano Agostino Ramelli', Paris, 1588. This interesting book ('one of the most elegantly produced of all technological treatises') is a series of engravings of various machines devised by the engineer Agostino Ramelli. Born in southern Switzerland, Ramelli served in the French army during the Wars of Religion (1562-98) and proved himself a competent engineer during the 1572 siege of La Rochelle which brought him to the attention of the future King Henri III (reigned 1574-89). In 1588, Ramelli published this book, written in Latin, French and Italian which provides detailed images of both civic and military machines. More than half of the volume consists of engravings of pumping machines and water mills, while another large section is devoted to ingenious siege engines. It is unknown how many of these proposals were actually used; some are recognisable today, particularly the use of pistons to raise water from one level to another, but others appear too complex and seem to indicate that Ramelli produced this work to demonstrate his knowledge of mechanics rather than to serve as a guide to the practical uses of technology.

TARTAGLIA, Niccolò
London: [by Thomas Dawson] for John Harrison [the elder], 1588. First edition. Hardcover. First edition in English, very rare, of the first three books of Tartaglia's 1546 <em>Quesiti et Inventioni Diverse</em>, dealing with ballistics and expanding and correcting the treatment in his 1537 <em>Nova Scienti</em>a, the first systematic treatise on the subject. The appendix of the translator Cyprian Lucar is compiled from writings on gunnery by contemporary authors. "Tartaglia proved both mathematically and experimentally that the trajectory of a missile fired from a cannon was a curved line throughout, thus contradicting the 'impetus' theory derived from Aristotle's <em>Physics, </em>which stated that a projectile's trajectory was described by two straight lines united by a curved line (Tartaglia was the first Renaissance scientist to point out serious flaws in the <em>Physics</em>)<em>. </em>Tartaglia demonstrated that from the beginning of its flight, a projectile was affected by gravity, which, along with wind resistance, caused its forward velocity to lessen while increasing the speed of its fall. Tartaglia also observed a relationship between the speed of projection and the speed of fall: the greater the initial speed, the less the gravitational influence. Through experimentation, he determined that the maximum cannon range, at any given initial speed, was obtained with a firing elevation of forty-five degrees" (Norman Catalogue 2053). In fact, in the <em>Nova Scientia </em>Tartaglia argued that the path of a projectile consisted of rectilinear parts at the beginning an … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Rara edizione cinquecentesca veneziana della versione italiana delle "Antiquitates Urbis" di Andrea Fulvio, forse la prima vera descrizione topografica di Roma fornente anche una puntuale descrizione di quanto era rimasto, nel primo Cinquecento, delle antiche vestigia romane. 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.

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]

"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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
