THEOPHRAST. - THEOPHRASTUS, THEOPHRASTOS, TEOFRAST, TEOFRASTOS. - [THE CASAUBON-EDITION]
Lyon, Franciscus le Preux, 1592. Small 8o. Early 19th century half calf with gilt title-label to spine. A bit of wear to hinges and corners, but fine and tight. Internally exceptionally nice and clean. P. Rubow's owner's signature to front free end-paper. Woodcut vignettes to title-pages and woodcut initials at beginning of both parts. (8), 88; 270 pp, 1 blank leaf, (16 ff. of indexes and errata at end). ¶ Scarce first edition thus, being the editio princeps of Casaubon's milestone-edition of the seminal work that is Theophrastus' "Characters", containing, apart from the original Greek text and Casaubon's translation of it into Latin, also Casaubon's highly important commentary of the text. "This edition, which was frequently reprinted (1598-1612-1617-1638, &c.), is in every respect worthy of the high reputation of Casaubon. Both the text and the notes have served almost every subsequent editor. The Commentary is a rich mine of Grecian literature. The editor availed himself of the use of four MSS. in the Palatine library". (Dibdin).Theophrastus (ca. 371- ca. 287 BC), Aristotle's successor at the Lyceum, and probably the most famous Aristotelian of all times, successfully presided over the Peripatetic School for 36 years and here wrote a number of works. The most famous of them is arguably his great moral opus "The Characters", which continues to amaze readers to this day. It introduced the "character sketch", which became the core of the Character as a genre, and as such influenced the entire literary tradition of the Western world. The fabulous, very witty, astute, harsh, … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALLES, Francisco
Luis Sanchez, Madrid, 1592. 8º (14,5 x 9,7 cm). 8 h. inc. port., 103 h. fol., al vuelto el colofón. Encuadernación del siglo XX en pergamino rígido. El autor –considerado como el creador de la anatomía patológica moderna– fue médico de Cámara del rey Felipe II y sin duda el mayor exponente de la medicina española renacentista y principal figura europea del galenismo hipocratista, movimiento que rechazaba la subcultura científica en torno a la alquimia. La gran difusión de los medicamentos obtenidos por destilación llevó a que Felipe II promulgase una ordenanza reglamentando su uso. Para la explicación de dicha ordenanza, que reglamentaba que reglamentaba los medicamentos de uso interno obtenidos por destilación, así como los pesos y medidas farmacéuticos, encargó a su médico personal y protomédico del Reino de Castilla, que redactase un Tratado de las aguas destiladas, y así instruir en la correcta elaboración de las aguas para evitar envenenamientos posteriores.

Ferrara, Benedetto Mammarelli. In 8vo (mm. 134x88). Pp. 209, [31]. Segnatura: A-P8 (manca la carta bianca P8). Stemma xilografico del dedicatario Alfonso II d'Este al frontespizio, marca editoriale e colophon a carta P7v. Iniziali xilografiche. Pergamena del primo Settecento a sei nervetti passanti, titolo in oro al dorso, tagli azzurri (numero "14" vergato al piatto posteriore).

Nel complesso ottima copia. FIRST EDITION (it was reprinted in 1607 with an anonymous biography of Pocaterra).
"The psychiatrist who listens in on Pocaterra's Dialogues is thrown into a heady experience not unlike that of an archaeologist who has stumbled into a treasure trove filled with artifacts that make us uncomfortable. It is a time capsule sealed in 1592, four centuries before the appearance of a readership ready and able to understand it. Books on shame are never easy to read simply because shame is the emotion responsible for privacy; within each of us, shame protects the borders of what we hide. In no era has a book on shame been easy to read. This one is not only the first ever written about shame, but a major, historically significant disquisition - a wide-ranging survey of embarrassment, humiliation, mortification, exposure, failure, and the experience of personal deficiency. Pocaterra, in his insistence that shame is a personal experience of unique form, intensity, and importance, demands that we kno … [Click Below for Full Description]

PALINGENIO STELLATO, Marcello
Londini [i.e. London]: Excudebat Robertus Robinsonus, 1592. 255, 255-288pp, [58]. Recent gilt-tooled crushed blue morocco. Marbled endpapers, very occasional annotations to margins, lightly dust-soiled/spotted. A late sixteenth-century edition of an astrological verse first printed in Venice in approximately 1536. The initial letters of the opening 29 lines of the first part ‘Aires’ form the acrostic of ‘Marcellus Palingenius Stellatus’, commonly thought to be the anagrammatic pseudonym of Pier Angelo Manzolli, of Stellata in Ferrare. The erudite didactic poem advocates the pursuit tangible knowledge (comparable to Platonic ideals) as being the path to the contentment of humanity, and vehemently satirises ecclesiastical hypocrisy - particularly in regard to the Papacy. The text proved a sensation throughout Europe, with a plethora of editions and translations being made - including a 1565 printing in English by Barnabe Googe. The reception in Italy however was far from laudatory – the Inquisition deemed the work heretical; upon the authors death his mortal remains were burned, and in 1559 Pope Paul IV commanded the book be added to the first Index Librorum Prohibitorum.

PONTANUS (Iacobus).
Lyon, Bartholomé Vincent, 1592. in-8. 16ff. 431pp. Vélin souple de l'époque. Cet ouvrage classique de pédagogie traite de nombreux sujets, sous forme de dialogues. Il comprend à l'origine plusieurs parties qui furent publiées à Ingolstadt de 1588 à 1594 avant d'être réimprimées, souvent séparément, à travers toute l'Europe. La présente édition lyonnaise, fort rare, reprend la première partie de l'ouvrage, contenant des règles de conduite et des préceptes de l'art d'écrire. Traces de mouillures aux premiers feuillets, diverses traces de manipulation. Manque au Catalogue de la Bibliothèque Nationale qui ne cite aucune édition du 16e siècle (cf. Opale Plus).

Brown morocco stamped in blind and gilt, a.e.g. by the French Binders. Title-page a little dusty, some marginal toning to text, and an occasional stain, otherwise a remarkably fine and attractive copy, with the Kalbfleisch morocco ex-libris on the front pastedown.

Kalbfleisch Copy of Estienne Greek-Latin Printing of Herodotus. Lovely copy - complete with all of the frequently missing plates - of the father of modern history's immortal classic as magnificently printed by Henri Estienne of the great family of printer-scholars in this (first-ever?) bilingual edition. One of Estienne's most famous books, in fact was his 1566 printing of Herodotus in Latin, with a controversial, highly satirical apologia by Estienne which offended many churchmen and got him arrested. This was followed by a second edition in Greek in 1570 and this third edition in 1592 (though advertised as the second edition).

HERODOTUS [c.480-425 B.C.] – ESTIENNE, Henri, II (1531-1598)
[Geneva]: Henry II Estienne, 1592. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio (340 x 210mm). [48], 731pp., [25, index] (p. 709 misnumb. 711; 727 misnumb. 627). Signatures: [alpha]-[zeta]4; a-z6; aa-zz6; aaa-nnn6; ooo-ttt4. Large woodcut Estienne device of olive tree with scroll motto NOLI ALTUM SAPERE (“Be not high-minded”) on title, woodcut ornaments and initials throughout. Title page printed in red and black. Text in Latin and Greek in parallel columns. Printed marginalia. Later mottled calf; (lacking the four plates, scuffed and worn with age, some marginal dampstaining, most severe at beginning and end, otherwise good). Unidentified armorial bookplate (ox under crest of helmet) pasted on verso of title. Sold as is. The 1592 edition of Herodotus’ ‘Histories’ printed by Henri Estienne. It follows the first Henricus Stephanus edition, Paris: 1570 (Greek only); this the second edition Geneva: 1592 (Greek and Latin, the Latin version being that of Valla, revised and corrected by Stephanus); and another edition published in Frankfurt: 1608, by Gottfried Jungermann, which made considerable improvements on this work by dividing the books into chapters. It is this latter edition from which the present text is reprinted, with the addition of some remarks of Patus, and some emendations of the Latin version of Valla. Herodotus’ Histories is clearly the centerpiece of the edition (pp. 1-635), but the focus of the ancillary material very much highlights 16th-century interest in the East. And this is evident not just by the inclusion of material from Ctesias (pp. 678-97) but also the subject of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Agustín, Antonio.
Rome, Ascanio & Girolamo Donangeli, 1592. 4to. 239, (16) pp. With engraved title page, separate engraved half-title with engraved portrait on verso, and 35 plates of engravings printed on both sides, counted as tavola 3-72. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. spine title. Second Italian edition, often called the first and identical with the all but unobtainable edition issued in Venice in 1590. The Spanish original had appeared in Tarragona in 1587 as "Dialogos de medallas inscriciones y otras antiguedades". Antonio Agustín (1517-86), Bishop of Lerida and Archbishop of Tarragona, is frequently considered the father of Spanish numismatics. - The half-title shows an engraved architectural border which originally surrounded a repeat of the text of the main title (indeed, it was quite frequently bound first as the only title-page), but the text has been here overpasted by the publishers with the letterpress text "I ritratti delle medaglie che nella presente opera si contengono" (as in the copy in Trinity Library, Cambridge: "a printed slip pasted over the central panel of the title to the plates [...], with imprint as on the main title"). This copy was issued without the dedication leaf to Cardinal Caetano which sometimes follows the title. - Some browning and occasional waterstaining throughout. Binding somewhat frayed at edges; slight flaws to spine; final quire loosened. Still a good copy of a rare work. - Edit 16, CNCE 562 & 564. Adams A 2236. BM-STC Italian 11. IA 101.980. Palau 4100.

Martinez (Fr. Eugenio)
Hernan Ramirez, 1592. FIRST EDITION, woodcut device on title, irregular, sometimes quite pronounced, browning, small worm hole petering out by signature K, touching some letters in the preliminaries, but marginal thereafter, ff. [viii], 305, [7, Index], small 8vo, marbled wrappers of uncertain date (not recent), brand on top edges, numbers and letters on the fore-edge. Much of the little that is known about the Cistercian Martinez's life is derived from this book. The colophon tells us that the present work was finished (i.e. composition thereof) on the 18th September 1584, when the author was 25 years and 2 months old. A full-blown hagiography of St. Agnes, replete, Palau tells us, with tall stories and extravaganza (patrañas y extravigancias). St. Agnes, the patron saint of chastity, gardeners, girls, engaged couples, rape survivors, virgins, and the Children of Mary. Not a slim volume by any means, this copy was once part of a Sammelband, which, to judge by the brand on the top edges, and fragmentary inscriptions on the fore-edges, must have been more than stout. Palau calls for 8 leaves at the end, but in fact the Index comprises 2Q2-8, and therefore the book is presumably complete: our collation agrees with that of BNE. WorldCat locates 1 copy in the UK (BL), and 1 in the US (Texas). Of the handful of other copies, most seem to be incomplete in one way or another. (Palau 154299) [Attributes: First Edition]

BARGAGLI SCIPIONE
In Venetia, appresso Bernardo Giunti, 1592. Cm. 19,5, pp. (8) 286 (2). Bel marchio tip. al frontespizio, graziose testatine e capilettera xil. Testo in corsivo. Legatura antica in piena perg. rigida; dorso a 4 sottili nervi e titoli in oro su tass. in marocchino. Sporadiche e trascurabili macchiette (più evidenti alle pp. 100-101), qualche lieve alone, peraltro esemplare ben conservato. Scipione Bargagli (1540-1612), letterato senese, fu membro dell'Accademia degli Intronati e dell'Accademia di Venezia. I Trattenimenti si inseriscono nella trattatistica sui giochi di società, alla stessa stragua del Dialogo de' giuochi scritto dal fratello Girolamo, poiché propone ai lettori svaghi capaci di esaltare il codice di comportamento cortese, tipico dell'aristocrazia tardo-rinascimentale. "Nonostante i cauti e fuggevoli accenni alla "natia amata libertà" e il raggelato effetto dei particolari orridi e commoventi dell'assedio di Siena, sottolineati con calcolata retorica e abile distribuzione di chiaroscuri, la finzione boccaccesca delle quattro nobili donne e dei cinque giovani riuniti dentro Siena assediata per festeggiare gli ultimi tre giorni di carnevale del 1554 è di maniera, mentre la descrizione dei giuochi e delle questioni amorose risponde a quello stesso aristocratico e municipale orgoglio che aveva ispirato al fratello Girolamo, con più commossa partecipazione, l'elegiaca rievocazione del "bel costume antico" senese nel Dialogo de' giuochi. Anche le novelle sono sorrette da uno studiato artificio di contenuto e di forma. La loro tematica, tutta amorosa, ubbidisce al can … [Click Below for Full Description]

Firenze, Michelangelo di Bart. Sermartelli, 1592. in-8, pp. 112, leg. settec. cart. Impresa tipogr. sul tit., iniz. e fregi silogr. Prima edizione di questa ''pièce'' in cinque atti, in versi sciolti endecasillabi e settenari; la scena si svolge sul Monte Senario, presso Firenze, dove i Sette Beati, che sono anche tra i personaggi della rappresentazione, fondarono nel 1233 il celebre monastero e, di conseguenza, l'Ordine dei Serviti, o Servi di Maria. Testo assai raro: il Cioni (Bibliografia delle Sacre Rappresentazioni, Firenze, 1961, p. 305) dimostra di non averlo visto, infatti, pur elencandolo insieme ad altre produzioni dello stesso autore, erra nel titolo e nel numero delle pagine. Il fiorentino padre Lottini, servita, morto nel 1629, compose almeno altre quattro sacre rappresentazioni ed una tragedia. Bell'esempl. (con qulache macchia d'inchiostro e lievi ingialliture).

Firenze, Stamp. del Sermartelli, 1592. in-4, pp. (4), 155, (1), leg. mod.m. perg., tit. oro al dorso. Grande stemma dei Medici sul titolo, grandi iniz. e fregi silogr. Dedica a ''Monsig. Fabio Orsino de' Marchesi di Lementana'' da parte di imprecisato ''Corifilo Pastor Tiberino'', il quale ci fa sapere che l'opera, composta molti anni prima durante le vacanze di un'estate, giaceva abbandonata tra le opere di giurisprudenza dell'autore, finché venne acquistata ed impressa per ordine di Giovanni de' Medici. Prima edizione di questa ''terribile e notissima'' (Bertana) tragedia in cinque atti in versi, ambientata a Menfi, in Egitto, ricca di fatti atroci di grande effetto e sicura presa sul pubblico. L'opera ebbe successo clamoroso ed inaspettato e costituì un vero e proprio ''caso letterario''; il suo autore, infatti, pur dottissimo, non aveva ambizioni letterarie, non scrisse alcun'altra opera ed esercitò soltanto la professione di avvocato (era nato a Orte, Viterbo, dopo il 1560 e morì poco dopo il 1617; fu intimo amico di T. Tasso con cui amava passeggiare per le vie di Roma, specialmente in piazza Navona). Stimata dai contemporanei e nell'età barocca, ''spia di un certo gusto bizzarro, sensuale ed immaginifico'' (DBIt. XXXIII, p. 549), la tragedia fu ritenuta dal Tiraboschi tra le migliori dell'epoca, e venne ristampata fino all'Ottocento. Accurata la veste editoriale, di grande formato, eccezionale per il XVI secolo, in quanto tutti i testi teatrali, per essere pratici e maneggevoli durante la rappresentazione, venivano stampati in formato tascabile.

Incisione in rame, colorata, mm 197x283. Questa carta di ispirazione mercatoriana, stampata da Johannes Bussemacher, collaboratore di Quad, che firma in lastra "Iohan Bussemecher excudit" è inserita in varie opere: "Europae, totius orbis terrarum partis praestantissimae universalis et particularis descriptio" pubblicato dal 1592 al 1596, "Geographisch Handt-buch" del 1600 e "Fasciculus Geographicus" del 1608. Quad, nato in Olanda, si trasferì in Germania per sfuggire alle guerre di religione che imperversarono a fine Cinquecento diventando uno dei massimi esponenti della Scuola cartografica di Colonia, formata principalmente da rifugiati fiamminghi ed olandesi tra i quali spicca il fondatore Frans Hogenberg. Quad usò per la sua attività diversi pseudonimi, tra cui Cyprian Eichovius e Konrad Loew. A causa dei numerosi pseudonimi la sua vasta produzione editoriale è di grande fascino e rarità. Ottimo stato di conservazione con lieve ingiallimento della carta spesso molto brunita, testovisibile in trasparenza, come sempre.Meurer, Atlantes Qua 7/68 (62).
