PATRIZI, Francesco (1413-1494)
En Madrid, por Luis Sanchez, 1591. 4to.; 8 hs., 412 folios. Encuadernación en pergamino, de la época. Rarísima traducción española de un clásico político del humanismo. La obra de Francesco Patrizzi, de Siena, Obispo de Gaeta, publicada originalmente en latín en Paris, Pierre Vidone, 1519, bajo el título «De Regno & Institutione Regis», y tal como registra Thomas Elyot (1490-1546) en su obra ««The Boke Named The Governour», publicada en Londres, 1580, fue junto a «Il Cortegiano» de Castiglione uno de los modelos utilizados por Erasmo para la redacción de su «Institutio Principis Christiani». La traducción al castellano de la obra de Patrizi aparece aquí realizada por Henrique Garcés «vezino de la ciudad de los Reyes, en el Piru», un curioso personaje que declara, en la dedicatoria a Felipe II, haber pretendido siempre ocuparse en Su Servicio «y con mas eficacia quando entendia podia dello redundar algun buen fruto al estado publico», confesando paladinamente que «ansi gasté no poca parte de vida y hazienda en descubrir y entablar en el Pirú el azogue y beneficio de plata con él». En medio del ajetreo de su actividad minera y especulativa se dedica a traducir la presente obra «por parecerme provechoso entretenimiento para herederos de grandes Reynos y Señorios, para que los que nuestro Señor os huviere dado comiencen desde los primeros rudimentos a habituarse en lo que a tan grande estado como les espera conviene».

BOTANY - PORTA, GIAMBATTISTA DELLA. 1535?-1615.
Francofurti, apud Ioannem Wechelum and Petrum Fischerum consortes, 1591. Second Edition, 8vo.7 x 5 inches, Title in red & black with with woodcut portrait on verso, [14] + 552 pages. Illustrated with 32 large woodcuts in the text. Bound in continental contemporary full panelled calf, with red title label. One or two leaves trimmed tightly in the index just affecting the running title, and one leaf of the prelims close on the fore-edge but no loss of text, otherwise a very fine clean copy. Thirty-two fine woodcut images of plants and animals distinguish this work on the signatures of plants, which was originally published in Naples in 1588. It is sometimes held that della Porta was the real originator of the botanical Doctrine of Signatures in any approximation to a scientific form. The theory was that Divine Providence had formed plants in such a way as to indicate the ailments they would cure, e.g. a walnut looked like the human brain, so would cure head ailments. The illustrations of the 'Phytognomonica' are helpful in interpreting Porta's view. The part of man's body which is healed by a particular herb, or the animal whose bites or stings can be cured by it, are represented in the same woodcut as the herb. The back view of a human head with a thick crop of hair is introduced into the block with the Maidenhair Fern, which is an ancient specific for baldness; a Pomegranate with its seeds exposed, and a plant of 'Toothwort,' with its hard, white scale-leaves, are represented in the same figure as a set of human teeth'.

SIGONIO, Carlo
1591 - An important edition of this history of Italy, perhaps containing the first edition of books 16-20. The first part contains the history from the invasion of the Lombards in 568 to the end of the 12th century, while the second part contains one of two editions to be printed in 1591 of books 16-20 which deal with the years 1200-1286. In order to obtain material for these works, Sigonius (c. 1524-1584) consulted all the archives and family chronicles of Italy, and the public and private libraries. The autograph Ms. of the work, containing all the preliminary studies and many unpublished documents is in the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan.Provenance: Ownership inscription on title of a member of the Benedictine monastery of St. Peter's in Salzburg, with their printed book-label, dated 1767, pasted inside front cover.Adams S1124.

Bei capilettera xilogr., testatine e finalini. Firma di appartenenza al frontespizio asportata. Lievi bruniture e un alone tra le pp.194 e 340. Nel complesso buona copia. Angeli , Pietro degli (nome umanistico Pier Angelio Bargeo). - Umanista (Barga 1517 - Pisa 1596). Ebbe giovinezza avventurosa; dal 1546 al 1548 insegnò latino e greco a Reggio Emilia; chiamato nel 1549 all'univ. di Pisa, v'insegnò fino al 1586 e poi di nuovo dal 1592. Come poeta latino ebbe grande e meritata fama per la squisita eleganza dei suoi versi. Il Tasso, per aiuti nella revisione della Gerusalemme liberata, si rivolse anche a lui, che si era accinto a un poema latino sul medesimo argomento (Syrias, in 11 libri, 1591). Sono da ricordare di lui anche il Cynegeticon (1561), poema sulla caccia coi cani, l'Aucupium (1566), poemetto sul modo di catturare gli uccelli, rimasto incompleto, varie liriche latine e le Poesie toscane (1589, insieme alla trad. in volgare dell'Edipo re di Sofocle). Intransigente e avverso al volgare, egli finì, però, con l'accettare la nuova letteratura e appartenne all'Accademia fiorentina, della quale fu cònsolo. Graesse I, 292. Camerini II, 179

PORTA, J.B.
Francofurti, apud Ioannem Wechelum & Petrum Fischerum consortes, 1591. Royal-8vo (207 x 134 mm) pp. (16), 552, with woodcut portrait of Porta on verso of title, printer's device on title and 32 woodcuts in the text. Contemporary limp vellum. Second edition of this work on signatures in plants which was originally published in Naples in 1588. "It is sometimes held that della Porta was the real originator of the botanical Doctrine of Signatures in any approximation to a scientific form. The theory was that Divine Providence had formed plants in such a way as to indicate the ailments they would cure (e.g. a walnut looked like the human brain, so would cure head ailments). Protagonists of this theory quarrelled violently with those who believed in astrological medicine ..." (Hunt). The elaborate woodcut title shows a.o. a lynx, emblem of the Accademia Lincei, of which Porta was a member. Galileo and Colonna were fellow associates in that society. "The book has a genuine scientific merit as well, for it groups plants ecologically by locale and distribution" (Anderson p. 198). The woodcuts are of a very high quality and rare praised as such by Arber. "The illustrations of the 'Phytognomonica' are helpful in interpreting Porta's view.

VIÈTE, François [& VAULEZARD, J. L. (translator)].
Very rare first edition of the first French translation and exposition of Viète's <i>In artem analyticum isagoge</i> (Tours, 1591), the earliest work on symbolic algebra, here bound with a first edition of Vaulezard's translation of Viète's <i>Zeteticorum libri quinque</i> (Tours, 1593), which gives examples of the application of his 'analytic art' to problems from Diophantus' <i>Arithmetica</i>. The third work is a scathing criticism of a slightly later translation of the <i>Isagoge</i> by Antoine Vasset, a response to criticisms Vasset had made of Vaulezard's translation in his own work.<br/><br/> "The most important of Viète's many works on algebra... [<i>In artem analyticem isagoge</i>] also introduced the use of letters both for known quantities, which were denoted by the consonants <i>B, C, D</i>, and so on, and for unknown quantities, which were denoted by the vowels. Furthermore, in using <i>A</i> to denote the unknown quantity <i>x</i>, Viète sometimes employed <i>A</i> quadratus, <i>A</i> cubus ... to represent <i>x<sup>2</sup>, x<sup>3</sup>, ...</i> This innovation, considered one of the most significant advances in the history of mathematics, prepared the way for the development of algebra" (DSB XIV 19). <br/><br/> Perhaps the most important part of the work is chapter 4, in which "he presents a mode of calculation carried out completely in terms of 'species' of numbers and calls it <i>logistice speciosa</i> - in contrast with calculation using determinate numbers, which is <i>logistice numerosa</i>.

CURABELLE, Jacques.
First edition, complete with its very rare supplement, of this polemic against Girard Desargues (1591-1661). Important for containing literal extracts from Desargues' <i>Brouillon Projet</i>, the work also contains the first printed reference to 'La Pasqualle', the mystic hexagram, published in 1640 by the sixteen year-old Pascal in a broadside of which only one copy survives.<br/><br/> Desargues' most important work, which constitutes the birth of modern projective geometry, was <i>Brouillon projet d'une atteinte aux événemens des rencontres du Cone avec un Plan.</i> "The <i>Brouillon Projet</i> on conics, of which he published fifty copies in 1639, is a daring projective presentation of the theory of conic sections; although considered at first in three-dimensional space, as plane sections of a cone of revolution, these curves are in fact studied as plane perspective figures by means of involution, a transformation that holds a place of distinction in the series of demonstrations" (DSB IV 47). Desargues intended his work to appeal not only to theoreticians but also practical men, and this perhaps explains his use of an original vocabulary which, however, made the pamphlet very difficult to read. It exerted little influence at the time, and disappeared from view (in fact, it was thought to be lost until a copy was found in 1951). Nevertheless, its methods formed the basis of the new techniques of projective geometry developed in the nineteenth century by Poncelet and his followers.<br/><br/> "In August 1640, Desargues published, again under the general title <i>Brouillon P … [Click Below for Full Description]

LE MOYNE, Jacques (c.1533-1588). - Theodor DE BRY
Theodor De Bry, Frankfurt, 1591. (13 1/2 x 9 5/8 inches). Engraved title, engraved section title, folding engraved map "Florida Americae Provinciae . descriptio", 42 plates after Le Moyne with letterpress titling above and text beneath, 2 engraved illustrations. Contemporary limp vellum, cloth ties, contained within a modern morocco backed cloth box. A fine wide-margined copy of the first Latin edition of a seminal illustrated work for early North America, with Jacques Le Moyne's spectacular images of the region's Native Americans and a very important map of Florida. With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors. The text of the Brevis narratio. describes the earliest French settlements of what are now portions of the United States and are here united by De Bry with engravings based on watercolours by a member of the expedition to the New World. To most of the Old World, this work presented the first accurate eyewitness depiction and account of Native Americans. In the mid-1560s two French expeditions led by Jean Ribault and René Goulaine de Laudonnière sought to establish a Hugenot settlement in Florida. Among those accompanying Laudonnière was Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues: born in Dieppe, France in about 1533, he was appointed artist to the expedition which sailed in April 1564.

BUDELIUS, R. [RENÉ BUDEL]. - [STANDARD WORK ON COINAGE - THE FIRST OF ITS KIND]
Coloniae, Ioannem Gymnicum, 1591. 4to. Bound in a contemporary embossed full vellum binding. Spine with a bit of discolouring; marks from a removed paper title-label. Contemporary handwriting to second front free end-paper and to top of title-page. Internally very fine and clean. (76), 798 pp. (As usual with the typopgraphical errors: pp. 139, 234, 267,353, 685, 768 are numbered as 339, 202, 263, 343, 645, 778. These errors are to be found in all published copies. See Einaudi 737).. Scarce first edition of one of the earliest - and most important - works on coinage, dealing with weight and measure, as well as the value and devaluation of money. Apart from the seminal original contribution of Budel, this extensive work contains 29 contributions by earlier philosophers and theologians on the subject, - a compilation of almost every earlier treatise on the subject - which, in a true Renaissance spirit, makes it the very first compilation in economic history. ''De Monetis et re numaria remained the standard work on the subject for almost two centuries. (Nussbaum, A Note on the Idea of World Money). During the Renaissance, international banking saw a rise, which eventually resulted in a demand for one uniform European coinage. Budelius' thesis can be read as an ideological response to this demand, as he argued for precisely that: a unified market with one universal coinage. In this sense, his work anticipates by several hundred years many of the economic thoughts presented by the Classical economists during the second half of 18th century. Budelius discusses the metallic view an … [Click Below for Full Description]

L';ESPINE, Jean de (ca. 1505-1597)
[Geneva]: Jacob Stoer, 1591. 8vo (173 x 110 mm). [24], 761, [15] pp. Roman and italic types, shoulder notes, woodcut printer's device on title (Silvestre 1002), woodcut head- and tail-pieces and initials. Contemporary blind roll-tooled alum-tawed skin, edges stained green (some minor rubbing). Provenance: Jesuits of Amberg (Bavaria), 18th-century inscription on title, later paper shelfmark label at foot of spine; a few 18th-century marginal notes and occasional underlinings in red ink in the last treatise.*** First Latin edition of four works of erudite spirituality by a significant but neglected advocate of French Calvinism in the period preceding the Edict of Nantes. An Augustinian monk from Anjou, de l'Espine corresponded wtih Calvin and eventually abandoned the cowl to embrace Protestantism. His pastoral works of spiritual edification and consolation, combining the traditional tropes and forms of Catholic pastoral literature with Calvinist convictions, met with great success and were widely translated, reaching readers in England, the Low Countries, and Germany: 89 sixteenth-century editions of his 19 works are recorded in the Universal Short Title Catalogue [USTC]. De l'Espine's role in the French Reformist controversies and his effectiveness as a proponent of a reasoned Reformist doctrine during this period of religious strife were recently examined by B. Roussel, for whom his writings belong to a group of major literary sources for modern understanding of the "interior life" of French Calvinists, supplanting the paucity of historical sources such as record … [Click Below for Full Description]

LUCAS J. WAGHENAER
Engraved map, 54x41,5cm Antwerp 1591-92 Published by Jean Bellère and Cornelis Claesz and replaced the "Universe Europe maritime..." from 1584 (see Kunstantikvariat PAMA, March 2011 entry 71 and the chart above). There are several changes to the previous map. The shape of Iceland is very different and more precisely, it extends further north and east to include Italy, the Finnish Bay and parts of The Adriatic sea, Russia and Novaya Zemlya. The chart shows close resemblance with Cornelis Doedsz' depiction of Scandinavia "Tabula hydrographica, tum maris Baltici..." (1589 or later). One of three recorded copies, all in institutions, is in theThe Norwegian National Library. The Doedsz chart was also engraved by the Van Doetecum brothers. Their engraved style is distinctive. They manage to provide incredible detail while maintaining absolute clarity. Our copy is in a strong, black impression with a delicate plate tone.. As commonly seen the left, right and lower margin are trimmed with some loss of the grade scale, the lower is trimmed into the bottom of the map. A fine, small restoration south-west of Iceland. The text verso slightly comes through in the Mediterranean. "Old" Koeman volume IV Wag 9B, William B.

VIÈTE, François.
First printing of Viète's <i>Ad logisticem speciosam notae priores</i> (one of his main works), together with the second edition of his <i>In artem analyticum isagoge</i>, "the earliest work on symbolic algebra [by] the greatest French mathematician of the sixteenth century" (PMM). The first edition of the <i>Isagoge</i>, published at Tours in 1591, is, together with the Lobachevsky, the rarest mathematical work in PMM, and this second edition is in fact rarer than the first in institutional collections [OCLC lists only copies in France and UK].<br/><br/> "The 'Introduction to the Art of Analysis' is the earliest work on symbolic algebra. Viète's greatest innovation in mathematics was the denoting of general or indefinite quantities by letters of the alphabet instead of abbreviations of words as used hitherto. Known quantities were represented by consonants, unknown ones by vowels; squares, cubes, etc., were not represented by new letters but by adding the words quadratus, cubus, etc. Viète also brought the + and - signs into general use. This algebraic symbolism made possible the development of analysis, with its complicated processes, a fundamental element in modern mathematics" (PMM). "This innovation, considered one of the most significant advances in the history of mathematics, prepared the way for the development of algebra" (DSB). <br/><br/> "To the treatises of the <i>Isagoge</i> belong <i>Ad logisticen speciosam notae priores</i> and <i>Ad logisticen speciosam notae posteriores,</i> the latter now lost. The first was not published during his lifetime, because Viète … [Click Below for Full Description]

Simple title page with a grotesque in the center. Thera are a lot of woodcuts representing tables, strange symbols, coded messages, tools to be used for the cryptography (these ones shall be used with the relevant volvells to be cut from the last page of the book). Full vellum modern binding with handwritten title on the spine. Title page with some repairs. A small lack of paper at the top of page 7 has been repaired with loss of some letters (see photo); tear restored at page 39, last sheet reinforced. Few small other repairs/reinforcement here and there (e.g. last sheet with volvells). In general, a very good copy. Very scarce counterfeit printed by John Wolfe of the first edition (Naples (Italy), 1563); second edition in absolute. Cryptography is a technique used to render incomprehensible to people not authorized to read it. Cryptography doesn't hide a message, but its meaning. The distortion of the message is carried out using a method agreed between the writer and people authorized to read it. By inverting the process, it comes out the original message. There exists two editions of this treatise printed in 1591: the present one, practically Identical to that one printed in Naple in 1563, and another one with correct place and date (Londini, apud Iohannem Wolphium) and with another dedicat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Expertly bound to style in 18th-century French red morocco, covers with triple gilt fillet border, spine in seven compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt hatching, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration of small tools around a central flower-spray tool, marbled endpapers, red stained edges. A rare contemporary hand-coloured copy of the De Bry first edition in German of Le Moyne's Florida: the first eyewitness pictorial record of the region.

With the publication of this work, together with Hariot's Virginia, De Bry launched what would later become known as his Grand Voyages. These first two works are without question the most important of the series both in terms of their contemporary influence and their historical and ethnographic value to modern scholars and collectors.

Antuerpiæ ex officina Plantiniani, apud viduam, & Ioannem Moretum, 1591. Très belle édition de la Veuve Plantin, commenté par Laevius Torrentius. Remarquable page de titre avec sa gravure pleine page composée des douze portraits des Césars et sa marque d'imprimeur. Deux très larges lettrines et deux culs de lampe dans la préface et dans le Au lecteur. Nombreuses illustrations sous forme de monnaie tout au long du texte. Papier vergé d'excellente qualité. Peu de rousseurs. Laevinus Torrentius fut la personnalité la plus remarquable de Belgique pendant un quart de siècle. Archidiacre de Brabant et vicaire génral de Liège ou devenu evêque d'Anvers, il consacra sans relâche au culte des belles lettres les loisirs que lui laissaient des charges absorbantes. De ce labeur incessant naquit une abondante production littéraire et scientifique. Ses travaux philologiques, commentaires sur les œuvres d'Horace et de Suétone furent édités de son vivant, ou peu après sa mort. Torrentius, semble-t-il, se souciait bien davantage de la publication de ses œuvres poétiques.

En Madrid, por Luis Sanchez, 1591. 4to.; 8 hs., 412 folios. Encuadernación en pergamino, de la época. Rarísima traducción española de un clásico político del humanismo. La obra de Francesco Patrizzi, de Siena, Obispo de Gaeta, publicada originalmente en latín en Paris, Pierre Vidone, 1519, bajo el título «De Regno & Institutione Regis», y tal como registra Thomas Elyot (1490-1546) en su obra ««The Boke Named The Governour», publicada en Londres, 1580, fue junto a «Il Cortegiano» de Castiglione uno de los modelos utilizados por Erasmo para la redacción de su «Institutio Principis Christiani». La traducción al castellano de la obra de Patrizi aparece aquí realizada por Henrique Garcés «vezino de la ciudad de los Reyes, en el Piru», un curioso personaje que declara, en la dedicatoria a Felipe II, haber pretendido siempre ocuparse en Su Servicio «y con mas eficacia quando entendia podia dello redundar algun buen fruto al estado publico», confesando paladinamente que «ansi gasté no poca parte de vida y hazienda en descubrir y entablar en el Pirú el azogue y beneficio de plata con él». En medio del ajetreo de su actividad minera y especulativa se dedica a traducir la presente obra «por parecerme provechoso entretenimiento para herederos de grandes Reynos y Señorios, para que los que nuestro Señor os huviere dado comiencen desde los primeros rudimentos a habituarse en lo que a tan grande estado como les espera conviene».
