Paris, Matthew
Tiguri (Zurich): In Officina Froschouiana, 1589 Tiguri: In Officina Froschoviana. [Zurich (Switzerland), Christophorus Froschoverus, Christopher Froschauer], 1589. In contemporary dark-brown leather-covered boards. Woodcut printer’s device to title, ink stamp of Prior Park to title and margins of a few other ff. Occasional light water-staining to lower margins, heavier towards end, later panelled calf, repaired. [Adams P337]. / Folio. Pp. 6 p.l., [34] index, [1] blank, 977 / A very nice, tight and clean copy. Digital photographs may be available on request. //Matthew Paris (c. 1200 – 1259) was a Benedictine monk, English chronicler, artist in illuminated manuscripts and cartographer, based at St Albans Abbey in Hertfordshire. He wrote (as both author and scribe) a number of works, mostly historical, which he illuminated himself, typically in drawings partly coloured with watercolour washes, sometimes called "tinted drawings". Some were written in Latin, some in Anglo-Norman or French verse. In spite of his surname, and of his knowledge of the French language, he was of English birth but may have studied at Paris in his youth after early education at the St Albans Abbey School (now St Albans School). The first we know of him (from his own writings) is that he was admitted as a monk at St Albans in 1217. It is on the assumption that he was in his teens on admission that his birth date is estimated; some scholars suspect he may have been ten years or older. Many monks only entered monastic life after pursuing a career in the world outside. He was clearly at ease wi … [Click Below for Full Description]

DELLA PORTA, Giovanni Battista
Naples: Orazio Salviani,, 1589. Folio (296 × 217 mm). Nineteenth-century quarter calf, marbled sides, vellum tips. Woodcut title border incorporating lynx at head, author's portrait on verso, numberous woodcut illustrations and diagrams in text. Joints skilfully restored, neatly relined to style, boards rubbed, a few tiny holes, mostly marginal, some light browning and staining as usual with this paper stock, still a very good copy. First edition of the complete text in twenty books of Della Porta's major work. Giambattista della Porta (1538–1615) is one of the most interesting figures of early modern science. Like Galileo, who was Della Porta's immediate successor as a member of the select scientific society, the Accademia dei Lincei, Della Porta opposed the Aristotelian science that dominated the universities of Renaissance Europe. The Aristotelians proposed a qualitative explanation of the way Nature behaved, and could offer no explanation for those "occult qualities" or "jokes of nature" which were apparent exceptions to nature's regularities. In contrast, Della Porta, the German alchemist Paracelsus, Girolamo Cardano and other 16th-century anti-Aristotelians focused their attention on natural particulars: the way Nature behaved in specific instances, often those that seemed to reveal her most subtle workings. They recognized that a new science would have to account, somehow, for these exceptions to the way the world normally worked. Originally published in Naples in 1558 in four books, Natural Magic was revised and considerably expanded throughout … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARETINO, Pietro. The last two of the whore's dialogues : specially interesting for their references to the symbolism of Tarot
[London, John Wolfe], 1589. [Ragionamenti] La Terza, et ultima parte de Ragionamenti . ne la quale si contengono due ragionamenti, cio è de la Cortim e del Giuoco, cosa morale, e bella. 'Appresso Gio. Andrea de Melagrano'. [London, John Wolfe]1589. 2 parts in 1 volume, small 8vo. [3] + 202 + [1]f. Roman letter. Medallion woodcut portrait of author with legend 'D. Petrus Aretinus Flagellum Principum' on both titles, some ornamental woodcut initials. 18th century polished calf, ornate gilt spine with title. First edition to include the last two of the whores’ dialogues (the ‘dialogue of courts’, and the ‘dialogue of games’), considered as especially outrageous, completing Aretino’s evocative, stylish street commentary on low life in Renaissance Italy. The work was edited by the London printer John Wolfe (d.1601),formerly apprenticed to John Day,who may have been trained by Giunti at Florence. Wolfe had set up a press near St Paul’s, London, to produce piracies of books prohibited in Italy to sell them in continental Europe and was imprisoned for this in 1582. As explained in the printer's preface to the reader, this 3rd part of the Dialogues was published as a supplement to his collected edition of 1584. The volume is continuously foliated and divided into 2 parts: the first 66 leaves contain the 'Raggionamenti de la corti', the second part has the title 'Raggionamenti . nel quale si parla del gioco con maralita piacevole'. The text was not reprinted in the bowdlerized Elzevier editions of the Ragionamenti (1660 & 1668), but re-issued separately in 1650 under the title of 'Le … [Click Below for Full Description]
