Ibn Sina (Avicenna) / Betti, Antonio Maria.
1591. Folio (301 x 220 mm). (14 [including final blank]), 320 ff. (without the two final leaves cited by Edit 16 but not required by Durling). Title printed in red and black with woodcut device. Modern full vellum on 3 raised bands. Well-produced reissue of the 1560 first edition of this commentary to the 4th Fen of Book 1 of Avicenna's "Qanun", by the Bologna professor of logics and medicine, A. M. Betti (1480-1562). This part, the text of which is provided in full, is dedicated to general therapy, a staple of the compulsory teaching matter at mediaeval and Renaissance medical schools, if not one of the chapters most frequently to engender extensive published commentaries. Indeed, Avicenna's systematic "Canon of Medicine", written in Arabic but widely translated throughout the Middle Ages, remained the basis of medical training in the West until the latter half of the 16th century, when it gradually began to fall out of the syllabus at most European universities, not disappearing entirely until the mid-17th century. It continues in use to this day in parts of the Arab world. Through this encyclopedic work, the author exerted "perhaps a wider influence in the eastern and western hemispheres than any other Islamic thinker" (PMM). - A single edge flaw to fol. 263 (remargined by an earlier owner). A good, wide-margined copy showing minimal browning, rebound in contemporary style. Edit 16, CNCE 5658. Durling 401. Adams B 844. Not in BM-STC Italian or Wellcome.

Rome: Tipografia Medicea Orientale - Cardinal de Medici, 1591. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND EVERY BLEMISH! Bible leaf collectors know that some leaves are hard to look at and others look as new as the day they left the printing press. The condition of a particular leaf reflects its history and is not an indication of its actual value. Perfect leaves are ones that have seen little or no use over the centuries in contrast to those that are scarred by the ravages of time. Unblemished leaves are unloved leaves because they have had little contact with sinners. Imperfect leaves tell a story. Some are torn and ripped and worn away by excessive use while others have burns or worm holes and still others are water stained by flood and sometimes even tears. Each ugly mark or stain is in fact a beautiful witness to the Word of God, which, "liveth and abideth forever." We offer Bible leaves as we acquire them letting their condition speak for themselves. All our leaves are sold as seen on eBay. You may request additional images and information for any leaf. For the Serious Collector Choice Leaves, Finer than Gold, from the Word of God Taste and see!

ROSSI, Teodosio
Rome,: Cesare Capranica, 1591. Rome,: Cesare Capranica,, 1591. 1591. Engraving with etching, dated and signed on the lower part of the plate, laid paper with watermark "lily in the circle", trimmed to neatline, small woodworms holes skilfully repaired. This fascinating broadside deals with the duration of the sun's semidiurnal arc for places throughout the northern hemisphere. In theory, if one knew one's location, one could by using the table gain an accurate date. To the left and right of the table is a list of months, days (with every third day marked), and signs of the zodiac (with every third day marked). These form four columns, with two to the left and two to the right. The first column begins with 24 September and ends with 22 December; the second 21 March to 22 July; the third 24 September to 22 June; and the fourth 21 March to 22 December. The table is divided into 90 columns in three sections. each column marks a degree of latitude from zero (i.e. the equator) to 90 (the north Pole). each column is subsequently subdivided into hours and minutes of the duration of each semidiurnal arc. to the left and right of the table is a list of cities in the northern hemisphere with their respective degree of latitude. For example, the Maluku Islands (latitude 0 degrees) are situated upon the equator and, according to the table, have a constant semidiurnal arc lasting six hours throughout the year (i.e. the transit of the sun across the sky from sunrise to sunset is 12 hours). 'Londimu Angl.' (London) is placed upon the 53rd degree of latitude, with the length of the se … [Click Below for Full Description]

Annibale CARRACCI (Bologna 1560 - Roma 1609)
Acquaforte, 1591, datato in lastra in basso verso il centro, e firmato Carra: in. a sinistra, sul masso. Esemplare nel secondo stato di quattro (o terzo di cinque) con l'excudit dello stampatore Pietro Stefanoni aggiunto lungo il margine inferiore. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Il disegno preparatorio di questa incisione si conserva al Louvre, ed è in controparte rispetto all'incisione. Bohn in TIB menziona un altro disegno preparatorio, oggi agli Uffizi che, secondo la sua opinione, doveva essere probabilmente un primo bozzetto per l'incisione, di cui la concezione di base è già formulata ma si riscontra un interesse maggiore per il paesaggio. Presso la Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna, si conserva un altro disegno di Annibale, ritenuto da De Grazia copia della parte superiore dell'acquaforte, e modello per un probabile piccolo dipinto devozionale, alla stregua del San Francesco adorante il Crocifisso. Un altro dipinto, della collezione Denis Mahon, mostra strettissime affinità con la stampa. Il dipinto è considerato come autografo del Carracci dallo stesso Mahon, che lo fa risalire al 1586-87, mentre Longhi, nel 1960, lo ha considerato come copia seicentesca derivante proprio da questa acquaforte. De Grazia collega questa incisione al dipinto carraccesco Venere e Adone, oggi al Prado. In particolare nota che le pose di Venere e Amore, e della stessa Maddalena derivano dall'incisione di Agostino modellata sul dipinto del Tintoretto Minerva che allontana Marte dalla Pace e dall'Abbondanza.

Suetonius' work was especially important in the later research about the Historical Jesus and Early Christianity because he mentions "Chresto" and "Christian martyrs" (see pages 260, 262, 289 and 290 of our copy).

Su autor, López de Ayala, fue un gran humanista y poeta con una larga carrera que abarcó el Reinado de cuatro reyes de Castilla, de cuyos reinados publicó respectivas Crónicas. ;-Según Tomás Rafael Tovar Júlvez, en "Aspectos caballerescos de las Crónicas de Pero López de Ayala", dice: "Pero López de Ayala constituye una brillante figura de su tiempo. sus obras tienen un doble interés, literario e histórico. sus crónicas de los reyes de Castilla, Pedro I, Enrique II, Juan i y Enrique III, además de estar escritas brillantemente, cuentan con el atractivo de ser su autor testigo de los hechos. en ellas se reflejan numerosos hechos caballerescos, narrados por un caballero, que es Pedro López de Ayala, caballero y escritor. este es el atractivo de los hechos caballerescos narrados por Pedro López: brillante estilo, el ser su autor testigo de los hechos y aportar el punto de vista de la mentalidad caballeresca. no es nada externo a la caballería.

WAGHENAER, Lucas Janzoon.
Amsterdam: Cornelis Claesz, 1591, Latin text edition. 350 x 520mm. Minor restoration in lower margin. The first printed sea chart of the Bristol Channel, first published in 1588 and this example coming from a Latin edition of 1591, with the plate number (XIX) added lower left. It shows the south coast from Padstow coast east to Aust, marking Barnstable, Ilfrancombe, Minehead and, of course. Bristol. The Welsh coast shows from Milford Haven and Pembroke east to Chepstow, with Tenby, Swansea, Cardiff and Newport. It was engraved by the renowned engraver Johannes van Doetichum for Waghenaer's sea-atlas, the 'Spieghel der Zeevaerdt'. It has all the decorative details that make the series so attractive: strapwork cartouches for the title and scale, galleons and seamonsters. Koeman (IV, p.469) writes: 'Thanks to the unparalleled skill of the engravers, Baptist and Johannes van Doetichum, the original ms. charts by Waghenaer were transformed into the most beautiful maps of the period.'

Nicolini's device on title and colophon leaf. One folding woodcut plate and 3 double-page woodcut plates on 3 leaves (one inserted at quire Q), woodcut illustrations throughout (folding plate repaired on verso). Xyl. historiated initials. Some mistakes in page numbering. UNCOMMON FIRST ITALIAN TRANSLATION OF THE FAMOUS TREATISE BY ALBRECHT DÜRER ["VIER BÜCHER VON MENSCHLICHER PROPORTION"], A FUNDAMENTAL WORK IN ANATOMY PICTORIAL HISTORY. First edition in Italian, translated from Latin by Gallucci with the addition of a fifth book with considerations about art and poetry. The woodcuts are copied from the first edition, posthumously published at Nuremberg in 1528. This famous Durer's work was the synthesis of his belief that beauty was related to mathematical proportion. He makes the height of the human body the basic measurement of form. Books I and II treat of the mathematical and geometrical construction of forms; books III and IV consider the problems of variation and movement, leading to difficult and intricate considerations of spatial geometry, and finally the construction of his famous 'cube man'. Provenance: Handwritten inscription at bottom of title-page (Libro di Domenico Falia .....) and at last leaf verso (Addi, 21. Febraro 1651 ....).

Printer's device and architectural headpiece with caryatids to t-p, decorated initials and headpieces. Light age browning to first few ll. and intermittent light foxing, oil stain to upper outer corner of pp. 37-57, light water staining to last few gatherings, outer edges a bit dust-soiled, occasional thumb marks. A good, well-margined copy, untrimmed, in old carta rustica, casemark on spine, ex-libris 'Biblioteca Cravenna' and bookplate of Antonia Suardi Ponti to front pastedown. In slipcase. A good, very well-margined copy of the first edition of the first Hebrew grammar in Italian. Guglielmo Franchi (1563-98) was a converted Jew and Vallombrosan monk. Reprinted in 1599 and 1603, Franchi's work provided the first accessible introduction to Hebrew grammar which used the Italian vernacular as a linguistic reference point instead of Latin or even Hebrew. The Reformation had encouraged the development of a new systematic study of Hebrew among Christian scholars as a fundamental philological tool for biblical exegesis based on traditional knowledge derived from the ancient Masorah and Midrash. Franchi's grammar was however addressed to the Jews of Italian communities, very few of whom were by then versed in Latin or could read or speak Hebrew. Whilst rabbis opposed the vernacular translation of ancient Hebrew texts for fear of misinterpretation, anti-Jewish polemicists--often converted Jews like Franchi--published their works in the vernacular t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Folio, Contemporary pigskin over wood dated 1594 on the front cover. All edges are dyed in red. Clasps. "His two works our accounts of the law applicable to Flanders which he attempts to express in formal language and to reconcile with the civil law..." Adamiak, Frognak 144. Not in Adams. Damhouder (1507- 1581) Flemish jurist and magistrate studied law in Leuven and Orléans. After obtaining his doctorate in 1533, he practiced law as an advocate in Bruges. In 1537 he was appointed legal advisor of the city authorities, from which office he retired in 1550 to become clerk of the urban criminal court. In 1552 he was made a member of the Council of Finance by Mary of Hungary, governor of the Habsburg Netherlands, and held that office until 1575. His principal work was the Praxis rerum criminalium (first published in 1554), a manual on the practice of criminal law. The most immediate impact of Damhouder's works was on the witch trials of the time, in which the Praxis rerum criminalium and its translations were cited regularly as fundamental works. The Praxis dedicated a lengthy 64 paragraphs to witchcraft. According to the Praxis, witchcraft was a heinous crime that went unpunished too often because of the ignorance of magistrates, and which also covered love charms, fortune-telling, astrolog … [Click Below for Full Description]

BUDELIUS, R. [RENÉ BUDEL]. - [STANDARD WORK ON COINAGE - THE FIRST OF ITS KIND]
Coloniae, Ioannem Gymnicum, 1591. 4to. Bound in a very nice contemporary full calf with five raised bands, rebacked with the contemporary spine. Richly gilt spine and gilt lines to edges of boards. Contemporary handwriting to top of pasted down front free end paper. Pp. 777-798 with wormholes in margin, not affecting text. A very fine and clean copy. (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 dur … [Click Below for Full Description]
