        La Cinthia favola boscareccia.

      Orazio Salviani per Giovanni Giacomo Carlino e Antonio Pace 1594 In 4to (cm 20), pergamena floscia coeva, pp. (8), 176. Marca tipografica al titolo. Leggere fioriture, ma ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo dramma pastorale ispirato all'Aminta di Torquato Tasso, di cui Noci era un grande ammiratore. Ristampato per due volte nel corso del Cinquecento, esso è dedicato al celebre pittore napoletano Giovanni Battista Caracciolo, seguace di Caravaggio.La trama racconta del ritorno di Cinthia, che, travestita da ragazzo, rende visita dopo quattro anni al suo amato Silvano, il quale, si vocifera, si sarebbe innamorato di un'altra donna. La favola del Noci costituisce una fonte diretta di The Queenes Arcadia (1606) di Samuel Daniel (cfr. J. Lawrence, "Who the devil taught thee so much Italian"?: Italian language learning and literary imitation in early modern England, Mancester, 2005, p. 103).«Questo testo del Noci si presenta non come un esempio di mescolanza di generi e modi, come accadde nella ricercata 'mistione' della Mirtilla [di Isabella Andreini], quanto invece come esempio di indicazione, più o meno esplicita, dei modelli stessi che presiedono alla codificazione della letteratura pastorale: insomma, quasi un ideale riepilogo dei principali luoghi di quella tradizione, che accompagna in filigrana il pur ben organizzato percorso diegetico della favola» (cfr. G. Distaso, Esempi di favola pastorale in area meridionale fra modelli di scrittua, polemiche letterarie ed echi parodici, in: "Teatro, scena, rappresentazione dal Quattrocento al Settecento"?, a cura di P. Andrioli, G.A. Camerino, G. Rizzo e P. Viti, Lecce, 2000, p. 239).Poco si sa della vita del poeta Carlo Noci. Presso la corte del principe di Conca, di cui era originario, egli conobbe Torquato Tasso e Giovanbattista Marino, che a quell'epoca, ancora giovanissimo, svolgeva le mansioni di segretario (cfr. C. Minieri Riccio, Memorie storiche degli scrittori nati nel Regno di Napoli, Napoli, 1844, p. 408).Edit16, CNCE 23579. M. Bregoli Russo, Renaissance Italian Theater, Firenze, 1984, nr. 430. N. Brindicci, Libri in scena: editoria e teatro a Napoli nel secolo XVII, Napoli, 2007, p. 139. \

        Variarum lectionum libri XV ... accesserunt hac editione hymni sacri, & varia eiusdem auctoris poëmata

      Lugduni [i.e., Lyon]: Apud haered. Gulielmi Rovillii 16mo (12.1 cm, 4.76"). 621, [67] pp., final leaf blank; 62, [26] pp., final leaf blank.. 1594 First edition of Muret's classical commentaries to include the Hymni. The Variae, first published complete in 15 books in 1580, include excerpts from and explanations of both Greek and Latin texts, especially Cicero. A separate title-page introduces the Hymni (verses recited on specific holy days), followed by poems about illustrious contemporaries of Muret's — e.g., Raphael — and an index to the previous 15 books. The French humanist Muret (1526–85) has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used as a model for students. Greatly admired for his excellent understanding and interpretation of classical texts, he was dubbed "le meilleur orateur du temps" in Italy and France by Montaigne, whom he tutored; and Scaliger mused that Muret "satirised the Ciceronians and at the same time expressed himself in a thoroughly Ciceronian style." LIke most of Muret's published work, these Variae are based on his academic lectures; however the scholar Lambinus accused Muret of plagiarism, and indeed it seems Muret "borrowed" bits from his work without permission. (In retaliation, Lambinus published their personal correspondence.) Muret's personal life was fraught with tribulation stemming from multiple accusations of homosexuality in various cities where he resided. From 1559 till his death, however, he lived in Rome under the protection of at least one cardinal and a pope. The text is in Latin and Greek, printed in roman and italic, with decorative headpieces and floriated initials. A letterpress diagram on p. 547 shows the Greek alphabet corresponding to numerals. Provenance: John Saltar (19th-century adolescent's signature, front pastedown); Henry Johns Gibbons, Rittenhouse (Philadelphia), 1923 (signature, front fly-leaf verso). Contemporary vellum with evidence of four ties and trace of oval stamp to front cover center, ink title to spine and bottom edge; soiled, with worm to spine/ pastedowns, hinges (inside) cracked, textblock starting to loosen. Paper age-toned and foxed, with small holes from natural flaws on two leaves (and two others partially uncut); Hymni dampstained in lower inner portions (not horribly). A few early ink annotations present.

        [ORDERED BY QUEEN ELIZABETH TO BE BURNED]. L'historia ecclesiastica della riuoluzion [rivoluzion] d'Inghilterra diuisa in libri quattro ne' quali si tratta di quello ch'e auuenuto in quell'isola, da che Arrigo Ottauo cominciò a pensare di ripudiar Caterina sua legittima moglie, infino a quest'ultimi anni di Lisabetta, vltima sua figliuola. Racolta da grauissimi scrittori non meno di quella nazione, che dell'altre, da f. Girolamo Pollini dell'Ordine de' predicatori, della prouincia di Toscana

      Rome: Ruffinelli, 1594. IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. Small 4to. 766 pp. Collation: a8 b4 A-3C8 3D-3G4 (includes final blank), COMPLETE. Bound in 18th-century Italian vellum, spine gilt, mottled edges. Preserved in a green cloth case (Cloverleaf Studio) An extraordinary, strictly contemporary Italian view of Tudor history, written while many of the events were actually unfolding. The work gives an account of the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Lady Jane Grey, Mary I, and Elizabeth I -- all in exhaustive detail. "Pollini uses the term revolution in the modern sense of overturning the status quo, but with reference to the English Reformation as opposed to the Civil War. This Tudor revolution in religion began during the reign of Henry VIII, developed under Edward VI, and, after a Marian 'restituzione' of Roman Catholicism, was re-established following the accession of Elizabeth I" (Nicholas Tyacke, Aspects of English Protestantism, ca. 1530-1700, p. ix and passim). Pollini, following Sanders, was extremely critical of the Protestant Tudor monarchs; the work elicited a rare diatribe and appeal from Elizabeth I to Ferdinando de' Medici, in hopes that he would suppress the publication. Wyatt explains: "As Pollini was a Florentine subject, a Dominican friar of the monastery of Santa Maria Novella, once news of the 'Historia' reached England there was an initial series of exchanges between the Elizabethan government and Ferdinando de' Medici regarding the Grand Duke's possible suppression of the book. A subsequent letter followed two months later, after the full thrust of the Historia's polemic had been revealed -- probably with the arrival of the volume in England -- and once it became clear that nothing had been done to impede the book's circulation in Italy, Elizabeth, writing in Italian, initially appears to Ferdinando's past benevolence toward her and to the nobility they share as rulers... The text is identified as having been conceived and written within Ferdinando's jurisdiction, and Pollini is named as its author. The queen then reviews the progression of her knowledge about the book, at first aware only of a libelous work directed against her state, but now fully informed as to its contents, such that: 'Every single one of its pages is filled with the most extreme falsehoods, innumerable scandals, and the most wicked slander... We come to ask your Highness [...] to suppress and condemn to flame all those books that might be found in your Dominions, and to castigate as your subject that wickedly infamous person [Pollini] their author, for having composed and published such horrible calumnies and lies against such great Princes living and dead.' It is recorded that the book was in fact burned in Florence and in London in order to satisfy Elizabeth's anger over it. (SOURCE: Michael Wyatt, The Italian encounter with Tudor England: a cultural politics of translation, pp. 129-130 and passim). This second edition -- even more defamatory than the first -- was completely revised and enlarged by Pollini; for instance, the account of Sir Thomas More reciting Petrarch from memory appears here on pp. 107-8, but is absent in the first edition (cf. Michael Wyatt, "Other Petrarchs in Early Modern England" in: Proceedings of the British Academy 146, pp. 203-216, passim). Pollini's "Historia" is not without its detractors, but it remains extremely valuable for the transcriptions of key documents, many published here for the first time and/or are no longer survive (e.g. the famous letter from Lady Jane Grey to Queen Mary, August 1553, quoted on p. 358: "...due volte in questo tempo m'estato dato il veleno, la prima fu in Casa la Duchessa di Nortumberland, e di poi quì in Torre, si come io n'ho ottimi e certissimi testimoni, oltreche, da quel tempo in qua, mi son caduti tutti i peli d'addosso" (NB: the original letter is apparently no longer extant). In fact, Pollini's "Historia" Book II, Chapter XII and Book III, Chapter I contain many valuable transcriptions of documents by or about Lady Jane Grey, for which Pollini is recognized as the primary source. Dedicated to Cardinal William Allen, founder of the English College at Douai, the present work also utilizes Nicolaus Sanders' "De Origine et progressu schismatis Anglicani," Cologne, 1585 and Rome, 1586. Provenance: Carthusian Monastery at Florence (early inscription on title-page: Cart[usian]ae Florentinae" -- small armorial stamp on title page (unidentified) -- From Sunderland Library (sale of the Bibliotheca Sunderlandiana, lot 4994) -- blind stamps of the Theological Institute of Connecticut. Ours appears to be the only copy of any edition currently on the market.

Wendel Dietterlin was well known to his contemporaries as a painter and muralist. His grandest commission, from Conrad Schlossberger, intendant to Duke Louis of Württemberg and the dedicatee of the present first volume, was for the decoration of the ducal pleasure villa (the Neues Lusthaus). Executed between 1590 and 1593, his vast murals of the Creation and Last Judgement, painted on the ceiling and walls of the great hall, were sadly demolished in the 18th century. Most of Dietterlin?'s other paintings met the same fate, and only one of his easel paintings is extant (in the Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe). His main surviving oeuvre is therefore this collection of etchings of architecture and ornament, published over six years. While the first volume nominally surveys the five classical orders (Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, Tuscan and Composite), and the second volume is devoted to doorways and portals, Dietterlin ranges far beyond architecture and proportion to embrace the entire universe of ornament, successfully and inimitably combining Gothic and Renaissance elements in dizzying assemblages of scrollwork, strapwork, grotesque figures, and allegorical motifs whose meanings were obvious to his contemporaries. In both volumes Dietterlin states that his work is intended for young artists. In his preface to the reader, he explains rather breathlessly that he wishes to put at the disposal of young painters, stoneworkers, cabinetmakers, stone carvers and other artists and artisans, who lack access or understanding of Vitruvius and other architectural treatises, a comprehensive visual supply of models of each of the five orders with corresponding ornamentation. For Dietterlin?'s conception of the five orders embraced more than architecture: influenced by Serlio and by Hans Blum (whose column book was first published in Latin in 1550), Dietterlin ?"conceives the column orders as little more than thematic categories or divisions into which fall a range of original decorative forms?" (Millard Collection III, p. 25), from the most rustic to the most elegant. Dietterlin?'s sophisticated decorative repertory, elements of which he borrowed from Androuet du Cerceau, may not have been of much use for students: while his extravagant horreur du vide was in keeping with contemporary northern European aesthetic taste, Dietterlin?'s application of the principles of architecture to design is delightfully and sometimes nightmarishly idiosyncratic. These 99 etchings printed from 94 plates depict columns, pediments, cartouches, doorways and gateways, adorned or morphing into an array of human, zoomorphic and grotesque figures. The three later volumes, published in Nuremberg in 1498 along with restrikes of the plates from volumes I and II, extended the fantastical element into perspective itself, prefiguring the ?"impossible realities?" of M. C. Escher. While these first volumes exhibit a gentler mood, the ?"terror and dementia ... sometimes evoked by these images?" (Millard Collection III, p. 28) surfaces in Volume II, notably in the final plate, an ominous memento mori showing a portal overrun with dead animals, prone putti, a carcass, vultures, devils, and other sinister figures, with a pile of skulls inside the doorway and a tiny tombstone visible in the distance. In spite of their iconographic flights of fancy, Dietterlin?'s books seem to have been heavily used by artists and even a few architects. The Architectura helped disseminate Renaissance decorative forms in Germany, and Dietterlin?'s exaggerated Mannerist style influenced other pattern book designers as well as artisans and craftsmen throughout Northern Europe, even as far afield as England (cf. Summerson, Architecture in Britain 1530 to 1830, pp. 54 & 73). No doubt precisely because of their popularity, unsophisticated sets of even the 1598 edition are scarce, while complete copies of this first edition are few and far between. (These volumes were reprinted with the text in Latin by Jobin in 1594-1595; that edition is also exceedingly rare.) OCLC erroneously lists two American instututions holding copies of the first German edition (Columbia and the Canadian Centre for Architecture): in fact both holdings are of the Latin edition of 1594/95, and Columbia has volume 1 only of this first edition. ABPC lists no copy of either the German or Latin editions in Anglo-American auctions for the past 35 or more years, nor do we locate any other complete copies in the trade in the past half-century (a copy offered by Weinreb in 1964, in later sheep, lacked a text leaf). this large, unrestored copy in its contemporary german binding is a great rarity. VD16 D-1691; Berlin Katalog 1941; Brunet II, 706; Schlosser Magnino, pp. 412, 421; Fowler 104 (second volume only). Cf. Neue Deutsche Biographie 3:702; Thieme Becker 9:269-71; H. F. Malgrave, introduction, Millard Collection III: Northern European Books, pp. 25-28); Architectural Theory from the Renaissance to the Present (2011) 2:520-29 (?"this is the earliest etched work of any size to appear prior to Jacques Callot?").

        Colloquia sive Exercitatio latinae linguae.

      Nürnberg, Paul Kauffmann, [1594]. - 302, (34) SS. Mit Holzschnittdruckermarke am Titel und einigen ornamentalen Initialen in Holzschnitt sowie einer schematischen Holzschnittillustration. Pergamentband der Zeit auf 3 durchzogenen Bünden mit schöner Deckelblindprägung und hs. Rückenschildchen. 8vo. Eines der am häufigsten gedruckten Schulbücher; erstmals 1539 in Paris gedruckt; Estelrich zählt bis ins 18. Jh. über 200 Ausgaben. "25 Schülergespräche, die an Auflagenzahl, Kommentierungen und Übersetzungen gemessen, sich in ganz Westeuropa größter Beliebtheit erfreuten. [.] Das Werk ist Philipp II. gewidmet und soll Knaben zum Erlernen der lateinischen Sprache dienen, deren Kenntnis erst den Zugang zur Wissenschaft eröffne, wie es im Widmungsbrief des Verfassers heißt" (Brüggemann). Juan Luis Vives (1492-1540) war einer der berühmtesten spanischen Humanisten und Pädagogen; mit Erasmus und Budaeus bildete er das literarische Triumvirat seiner Zeit. 1523-28 war er Erzieher am Hof Heinrich VIII. von England und seit 1528 bis zu seinem Tode schriftstellerisch in Brügge tätig. "Seine Hauptbedeutung liegt in seinen pädagogischen Schriften. Im Allgemeinen lassen sich fast alle leitenden Principien der neuen Pädagogik auf Vives zurückführen, aber hoch überragt dieser die meisten Pädagogen durch die Betonung der Einheit von Unterricht und Erziehung" (Wetzer/W. XII, 1024ff.). - Die vorliegende Bearbeitung ist mit einem Kommentar und Worterklärungen (teils mit deutschen Übersetzungen) zu jedem Schülergespräch versehen von Johann Thomas Freige (1543-83), einem Philosophen und Anhänger des Ramus, geboren in Freiburg und längere Zeit in Basel tätig (vgl. ADB VII, 341ff.). Solche Kommentierungen waren für Vives' "Exercitatio" typisch: "Vives beabsichtigte mit seinem Werke, den Schülern für den gesamten Bereich des täglichen Lebens in Schule und Haus bis in die kleinsten Teile hinein mit den richtigen lateinischen Bezeichnungen an die Hand zu gehen, und er zog deshalb mit peinlicher Sorgfalt alle nur denkbaren Dinge und Verhältnisse in die Gespräche hinein. Wenn der Sprachschatz seiner Zeit erschöpft war, holte er neues Material aus den technischen Schriften der Alten; genügte das Lateinische nicht, so wurde das Griechische herangezogen und, wo auch dieses nicht ausreichte, zu neuen Bildungen nach der Analogie geschritten. Diese wohlanzuerkennende Absicht des Humanisten, eine möglichst weitgehende praktische Verwendung der lateinischen Sprache zu ermöglichen, brachte aber auch einen Vives nicht ohne Grund zum Vorwurf gemachten Uebelstand mit sich, dass nämlich die Lektüre der Schrift durch die fast erdrückende Fülle des Materials zu sehr erschwert wird. Um das Verständnis zu erleichtern, [.] schrieb [man] Erklärungen der schwierigen Worte und Stellen, oder man setzte neben den lateinischen Text eine Uebersetzung in der Sprache seines Landes" (Bömer, 163ff.). - Neuausgabe der 1582 bei Gerlach gedruckten Ausgabe durch Paul Kauffmann (1568-1632), der die Berg-Gerlachsche Offizin 1594 übernahm (vgl.

        Lettres d'un François pour la pré-séance du Roy de France contre le Roy d'Espagne.

      Paris, Mamert Patisson, 1594, - 2 parties en un vol. in-8, 24-50 pp., demi-maroquin brun à coins, dos à nerfs orné (reliure du XVIIIe). Bon exemplaire.Très rare, surtout complet de la seconde partie. Il s'agit de la réimpression d'un pamphlet d'abord paru sans date vers 1585, puis repris en 1587 à l'intérieur d'un ouvrage plus vaste, Traicté de la grandeur, droicts, prééminence & prérogatives des Roys, & du royaume de France. Ce traité lui-même sera ultérieurement inséré dans les éditions des Libertés Gallicanes de Pierre Pithou. Les deux parties correspondent : a) à la réimpression du texte original ; b) à un résumé du traité plus développé que nous avons cité. En dépit du fait que leurs idées politico-religieuses étaient largement communes, il ne faut pas confondre François Pithou (1543-1621) avec son frère aîné Pierre, davantage connu pour sa grande compilation sur les libertés gallicanes. Welsh, Checklist of French political pamphlets, 301 (première partie) / Second checklist, 192 (seconde partie). Cf. Cioranescu, XVI, 17637 & 17638. Cf. SHF, Hauser, 3107.
