        Vita di Esopo frigio, prudente, et faceto fauolatore.

      In Venegia: Appresso Gio. Battista, & Gio. Bernardo Sessa, 1597. - Duodecimo. Two parts in one volume. 414, [xiv]pp. A12-S12 [S11-S12 blank]. Separate title-page to "Favole." Title and each page of text within border of type-ornaments. Vellum, repaired. Illustrated. This work was printed by a variety of printers using the same woodcuts and ornaments. Although a good number of editions were printed in the sixteenth century, most did not survive their use in schools. The Czech National Library identifies a copy at the "Library of the ASCR - Praha, " with the same date and pagination, but without a printer's name. The Italian National Union Catalogue does not locate a copy, but it is conceivable that the 'Biblioteca Comunale Lorenzo Leonj, in Todi may have a copy.

        De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem, libri duo... -

      Venezia, Bindoni, 1597.In - folio (340 x 230 mm.). Legatura del '900 in pergamena rigida, titolo calligrafato sul dorso. Frontespizio architettonico inc. in rame con figure allegoriche ai margini e lo stemma di Vincenzo Gonzaga in alto, titolo in rosso e nero e con grande marca tipografica, 2 illustrazioni piccole e 22 a piena pagina inc. in legno n.t. che mostrano strumenti chirurgici e gli interventi descritti nel testo. (28), 94, (2 bianche), 95, 47, (33) pp.; pochi fogli lievemente ossidati; piccoli rinforzi ai margini bianchi del frontespizio, forse per allinearli a quelli non rifilati del testo: esemplare in barbe e d'inconsueta larghezza. Prima edizione di questa fondamentale opera, la prima dedicata completamente alla chirurgia plastica. Il trattato dell'eminente chirurgo bolognese, allievo di Cardano e Aldrovandi, fu così apprezzato che lo stesso anno apparve a Venezia un'edizione pirata del Maietti, e l'anno dopo una non autorizzata a Francoforte. Tuttavia, la tecnica chirurgica per ricostruire nasi, orecchie e labbra di persone sfigurate da ferite o malattie veneree venne osteggiata dai medici del tempo, sia per il timore di complicazioni - la fase postoperatoria durava circa due mesi - che per l'avversione della chiesa, che la considerava un'ingerenza con l'opera di Dio, per cui la pratica cadde in disuso e solo agli inizi dell'Ottocento rinacque l'interesse per la chirurgia plastica. Adams T - 59. Durling 4310. Wellcome 6210. Garrison & Morton 5734. Mortimer 488. Norman 2078: «The first book devoted entirely to plastic surgery. Although many earlier writers such as Celsus had discussed aspects of plastic operations, Tagliacozzi was the first to work toward establishing their scientific validity by publishing surgical procedures that had for generations been closely guarded secrets, and by improving these procedures in the light of the best medical knowledge of his day. Tagliacozzi described and fully illustrated the method of rhinoplasty that uses a graft from the patient's arm, as well as various cosmetic operations on the ears, yet his contemporaries refused to adopt his methods, possibly for fear of complications, or possibly because the Catholic Church regarded plastic operations as meddling with the work of God...» First edition. With an engraved architectural frontispiece, title in red and black and with a large woodcut printer's device, 2 small and 22 full - page woodcuts illustrating instruments and the techniques described in the text. Frontispiece slightly soiled and with very small portion of outer blank margins reinforced probably to bring them to the same size of the text; a few leaves toned. An uncut and exceptionally large copy bound in 20th century vellum.

      Hamburg, gedruckt durch Jacobum Lucium [Jacob Lucius], 1597. . Hard Cover. 4 Bll., 103 pag. Bll. (Bögen A - Ziij + Aa - Ddiij). Schlichter neuer Pp. (Kiebitzpapier) mit RSch. Durling 606; Schröder 356, 8. - Der praktische Arzt u. spätere Stadtphysicus Johann Bökel (1535-1605) war bereits 1578 mit einem Bericht über die Pest von 1565 hervorgetreten. In dem vorliegenden Werk widmet er sich zunächst der "Präservation" mit modern anmutenden Ansichten; der zweite Teil gilt der "Cura". Überraschend ist die Rolle, die der Autor Limonen, Zitronen u.a. sauren Früchten beimißt, sowie einer sauberen, gut belüfteten u. hygienischen Umwelt. Mit einem Anhang: Beschreibung der Pest zu Athen (nach Thukydides). - Zarter NaT von alter Hand. - Gutes, sauberes Exemplar des seltenen Werkes.

        Equitis Franci et adolescentulae mulieris Italae. Practica artis amandi, insigni et iucundissima historia ostensa. Accesserunt Declamationes Philippi Beroaldi Oratoris

      Frankfurt: 1597. 12mo (132 x 78 mm). 168 pp. Roman type. Printer’s woodcut device on title, woodcut initials. Title slightly soiled and with a few small ink stains, faint dampstaining to a few quires, very slight overall discoloration intrinsic to paper. Bound in 18th- or early 19th-century ?Swedish calf, sides with outer gold-tooled rule border and central gold-stamped crowned swan, blind-tooled inner border with fleurons, the leather of outer compartment speckled, spine gold-tooled in compartments, marbled endpapers, edges red-stained (possibly recased, edges uneven). Provenance: copious 17th or 18th-century underlinings and a few marginal study notes (e.g., “Dilemma,” “exempla contraria”), a few faint later marginalia in pencil; Hedegaard, 18th- or 19th-century signature on title; Thore Virgin, bookplate dated 1911 and "Bibliotheca Quarnforsiana" stamp on front flyleaf. ***FIRST EDITION of a compilation of humanist Latin literature, mainly on love, intended for adolescents or students, and brought together under an enticing title (The Practice of the art of love). The identity of the pseudonymous compiler is unknown (drudo means paramour or lover in Italian). The first work in the volume is Piccolomini's best-selling love novella, De duobus amantibus Euryalo et Lucreti (first ed. Cologne: Ulrich Zel, 1467). Composed around 1444, when he was secretary in the Imperial Chancery, and dedicated both to Mario Sozzini, his former teacher and mentor, and to his friend and patron the Imperial Chancellor Kaspar Schlick, Piccolomini's Tale of Two Lovers relates an adulterous love adventure at Siena, allegedly based on an escapade of the Chancellor. Several short pieces follow, including a model love letter purportedly from Hannibal, Duke of Austria, to Lucretia, princess of Epirus, which he wrote for the use of Sigismund, Duke of Austria, in 1443; and the Amoris illiciti medela, “Medicine for illicit love,” a brief treatise or manual (for men) for curing themselves of the sickness of love (women are the subject of a particularly misogynist passage: “Mulier est animal imperfectum...”). The edition also contains poetic and prose works by Beroaldo, including his Latin elegiac verse adaptation of the romance of Guiscardo and Ghismonda from the Decameron, and the two prose Declamationes (first eds. 1499 & 1497), on the questions of 1) which is worse, a fornicator, a drunkard or a gambler and 2) which is the best profession, that of orator, philosopher or physician. Both involve a father's will and debates between three sons. Later editions of the collection appeared in 1600, 1606, 1625, 1651, etc. This first edition is rare and was unknown to Brunet and Goedeke. OCLC lists a single copy in American libraries (Columbia).This copy, with its diligent underlining and marginal notes, evidently belonged to a somewhat later student of Latin. The collector Thore Virgin published a catalogue of his collection, the Bibliotheca Quarnforsiana, in 1947. VD16 P3112 = B2089, B2101, & B5843. Cf. Brunet II:840, Goedeke II:114.208,Gay-Lemonnyer II:137 (later editions).

        The Foure Chiefest Offices Belonging To Horsemanship,

      8vo.(18 cm), [6], 22; [7], 81; [3], 22; [9], 87, [1] leaves. 4 parts in one, black letter, general and part titles within pictorial woodcut border, 53 full-page woodcuts of horse bits, several other illustrations including 2 pages of horse shoes, contents leaf with notes in a contemporary hand on reverse. Parts 2-4 have special title pages, all dated 1597. Part 2 is an abridgment and adaptation of Federico Grisone's "Ordini di cavalcare." Other parts include The Art of Riding, The Order of Dieting of Horses, and The Order of Curing Horse Diseases. Front and rear cover detached, flyleaves missing, the signature of an early owner (David Bateson) appears on the title page. The title page has a 1 in. x 2 ½ in. chip on the lower front edge; A.ii is a trifle brittle and darkened on the front edge; there is a small stain on page 29 of The Order of Curing. The same page shows a marginal hand-written notation apparently describing an additional formula for treating ill horses. The verso of the last page shows another hand-written note which apparently prescribes a remedy or medicine for treating a horse bitten by a "mad dog." Despite the foregoing imperfections this is a very clean copy of an edition more rare than other 16th-century editions (of which there were 3: 1566, 1570 & 1593). A similar copy sold at auction in 2012 for fifty-nine hundred dollars. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Of diverse origins, the stories associated with Aesop's name have descended to modern times through a number of sources. They continue to be reinterpreted in different verbal registers and in popular as well as artistic mediums.Aesop (c. 620?"564 BCE) was an Ancient Greek fabulist or story teller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop's Fables. Although his existence remains uncertain and (if he ever existed) no writings by him survive, numerous tales credited to him were gathered across the centuries and in many languages in a storytelling tradition that continues to this day. Many of the tales are characterized by animals and inanimate objects that speak, solve problems, and generally have human characteristics.CONDITION:Condition is Good+/Very Good.  Small wear to edges, front board has a bit of bent part/little crinkly at bottom, bookplate Sardo, faint old circle stamp to upper title, some light blemishing throughout but for age pages are good, hinges/text block are very good for over 415 Years Old!!!

Thorley’s secret was the puffball narcotic, which he used when uniting colonies; its use was mentioned in 1597 by John Gerard and had long been practised in the Netherlands. Of English writers, Thorley was the first to mention having found wax scales in the pockets of worker bees. (Harding 97).

        Portrait, Halbfigur, halblinks, ein Swchert fassend umher ovaler Rahmen mit Inschrift Theophra. Paracels Aureolus Philipp. Umher manieristischer Blumenornament, in den Zwickeln Sphinxen und Faune.

      - Monogrammist BR (J.Th. de Bry), Kupferstich aus J.J.Boissard, Icones virorum illustrium, Frankfurt 1597-99, Kupferstich, 142 x 115 auf 201 x 167 mm; sehr frischer Abzug. Unter dem Oval in Latein: Hier ist der, dem das Geheimnis der großen Welt bekannt war, und der sich mit der Kunst des Verstandes den Verstand geben konnte. - Die Granatäpfel in den Händen der Faune symbolisieren die verbindung des Bösen mit dem Guten. - Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Rombastus Paracelsus ab Hohenbeim, "auch "Helvetius Eremita" genannt, war 1491 in einem Hause nahe an der über die Sihl führenden Teufelsbrücke, eine Stunde weit von dem berühmten Wallfahrtsorte Maria Einsiedeln (Canton Schwyz), geboren. Sein Vater, der Arzt Wilhelm ab Hohenheim, stammte aus der alten und berühmten schwäbischen Adelsfamilie der Bombaste, die sich von dem adeligen Schloss Hohenheim, dem nachmaligen Esslinger Hof, bei dem Dorfe Pfänningen bei Stuttgart "Bombaste von Hohenheim" nannten. 1502 siedelte er mit seinem Vater nach Villach in Kärnten über, wo letzterer 1534 starb. Er bezog 1506 die Universität zu Basel, gab sich hier besonders chemischen Studien hin, lebte längere Zeit bei dem als Alchemist bekannten TRITHEMIUS, machte dann grössere Reisen durch Europa, hielt sich an verschiedenen Universitäten Studien halber auf und genoss bereits um 1527 wegen seiner Kenntnisse einen solchen Ruf, dass er auf des bekannten Kirchenvaters, seines Landsmannes Oekolampadius Empfehlung als Nachfolger von COPUS 1527 zum Stadtarzt von Basel ernannt wurde. In dieser Eigenschaft trat er in ebenso abenteuerlicher, wie verletzender Weise auf, indem er als Zeichen seiner Verachtung der arabischen Medicin alle Werke des AVICENNA auf öffentlichem Markt verbrannte. Noch mehr brachte er seine Collegen gegen sich auf, als er es wagte, sich der deutschen Sprache zu bedienen. Es kam schliesslich zu völligem Zerwürfniss, als er auf das schmutzige geschäftliehe Treiben der im Bunde mit den Apothekern stehenden Aerzte aufmerksam und demselben ein Ende machte. Zuletzt zerfiel er auch noch mit den Behörden; er liess aus Aerger darüber dieselben in Pamphleten angreifen, musste aber in Folge dessen heimlich aus Basel entweichen und führte nun ein abenteuerliches Wanderleben , das ihn durch den Elsass, die Schweiz, Deutschland und bis an die entferntesten Punkte Europas, selbst bis nach Asien hinein verschlug, wobei er von einer grossen Zahl von Schülern begleitet war, meistens Vagabunden, die nur Stein der Weisen kennen lernen wollten und PARACELSUS für den Besitzer desselben hielten. Allmälig verbreitete sich sein Name und sein Ruhm über ganz Europa. Er wurde 1640 nach Salzburg berufen, lebte aber hier nur noch 1 Jahr und starb daselbst 24 Sept. 1541. - - PARACELSUS ist jedenfalls für die mystische Richtung der Medicin im 16. Jahrhundert die einflussreichste Persönlichkeit gewesen. Es ist über ihn sehr viel gedacht und geschrieben worden. Von der einen Seite ist er als Reformator, Vater der Heilkunde, Begründer der neuen Richtung in der Medicin gepriesen und in den Himmel erhoben, von der anderen als ein Mystiker, Schwärmer, Betrüger, Trunkenbold Gaukler bezeichnet worden. Dieser Widerspruch löst sich, wenn man auf die Quellen zurückgeht, aus denen er sich ergeben hat. Nachgewiesenermassen ist der bei Weitem grösste Theil aller Schriften, die unter seinem Namen erschienen sind untergeschoben und von den übrigen ist es höchst fraglich, wieviel davon ihm angehört und wieviel von seinen Freunden und Feinden hineingearbeitet worden ist. Seine Freunde glaubten, seine Lehre gar nicht dunkel genug darstellen zu können und seine Feinde, die ihn zu verunglimpfen bestrebt waren, scheuten sich nicht, in seine Schriften einen Wust von Unsinn hineinzutragen. Selbst die von seinen Gegnern gegen ihn erhobenen Angriffe sind darin als sein eigenes Werk aufgeführt. - Als Quelle des Wissens bezeichnete PARACELSUS die Erfahrung, aber nicht die auf dem Wege einer rationellen inductiven Forschung gewonnene .

        Versos espirituales, que tratan de la conversion del pecador, menosprecio del mundo. Y vida de Nuestro Señor con unas sucintas declaraciones sobre algunos passos del libro.

      Miguel Serrano de vArgas, 1597 (Al fín: 1596), Cuenca: - 20 hojas, 172 folios, 3 hojas. Plena piel con ruedas doradas en cantos y contracantos firmada Brugalla 1941. Cortes dorados. Suavemente lavado. Magnífico ejemplar aunque algo justo de márgenes afectando apenas en tres hojas alguna letra de las postillas. Palau 80159. Paloma Alfaro Torres, La imprenta en Cuenca (1528 - 1679), 43. Primera edición.La obra de Pedro de Enzinas es un recorrido por la historia de la poesia religiosa desde los griegos y romanos hasta la lengua romance, con especial mención de los poetas de orígen español. Al lado de los poemas, el autor realiza numerosas anotaciones con comentarios de tematica religiosa, referencias a la Biblia, significados alegóricos de ciertas imágenes como el pecado, el infierno y el demonio, etc. Por otra parte, explicita detalles sobre la tradición pagana y la mitología y se interesa por determinados temas como la astrología, la geografía o cuestiones de filosofia natural, citando a Plinio, Dioscórides o Aristóteles. Los Versos espirituales se imprimieron en Cuenca en 1597, ahora bien la tasa y la fe de erratas van firmadas ese mismo año, pero los correspondientes privilegios y las aprobaciones datan de 1595. En ese año o muy poco después debió de fallecer Enzinas, puesto que el librero, en una epístola dedicatoria, le comunica al corregidor de Cuenca y Huete que hace más de un año hizo imprimir el libro y que por la muerte del dominico ha quedado huérfano. Por lo tanto, le debió de sobrevenir la muerte en el proceso de publicación, de la cual, finalmente, se encargarían sus hermanos religiosos. Por eso, los doce sonetos laudatorios, más un epigrama en latín del Dr. Luis Termiño, informan del contexto conquense y dominico del poeta. En los posliminares, un soneto en italiano de Benedetto Fabiani y otro acróstico de Joan de Cisneros. Para los preliminares el autor redactó una Dedicatoria a la condesa de Saldaña, heredera del ducado del Infantado. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The interpolated section somewhat closely trimmed with occasional loss of catchwords or signatures. Armorial bookplate of George Noble. Rubbed, some staining and spotting, a few pen trials on blank leaves, a well-used copy. First edition. John Skene (c. 1540–1617) had been appointed to a commission in 1592 to review and print acts of parliament and other laws, which resulted in the present work, containing post-1424 statutes. Appended to it is De verborum significatione, with separate title page also dated 1597, the first published dictionary of Scots law. The present volume is expanded by the insertion – after the fifteenth parliament of James VI (1597) and before "Ane table of the principall maters conteined in this buik" – of the Scottish parliaments of James VI to 1621. Skene was knighted in 1604 and was appointed a commissioner for negotiating the proposed union with England. His compilation is eagerly sought after by golf collectors, as it includes several references to the game, from James II's banning of it (along with football) in 1457 as an unwelcome distraction to learning archery, the first written record of golf.

Hauptwerk des spanischen Jesuiten Juan de Maldonado (französisch: Jean Maldonati, 1533-83), gefeiert als Pionier der Exegese. Als Lehrer der Philosophie und Theologie am Pariser Collegium von Clermont brach er mit der scholastischen Tradition und erzielte damit eine sensationelle Popularität unter seiner Hörerschaft. 1576 ließ ihn die Sorbonne aus Paris entfernen. In Bourges verfaßte er seinen Evangelienkommentar und wurde Visitator der französischen Provinz. Nach seinem Tod im Alter von nicht einmal 50 Jahren hinterließ er nur Manuskripte. "Durch seine Bibelkommentare, vor allem sein Hauptwerk über die vier Evangelien, verdient er als einer der Gründer der theologischen Exegese Ansehen" (Bautz, BBKL V, 613ff.).
