      Finely engraved title & 90 full-page engravings in the text. 5 p.l., 203 pp. Small folio, orig. semi-stiff vellum (two early marginal repairs to text leaves), ties gone. Chaumont: Q. Marechal, 1598. First edition, and a really lovely copy, of this uncommon and finely illustrated book on war machinery. Boillot (b. 1560), was an architect from Langre and military engineer to Henri IV. In his youth, he studied mathematics and drawing and was familiar with all aspects of engraving. Most of the illustrations and engravings in this work are also by the author. This is the first book printed in Chaumont, then and now a small provincial town on the Marne River. The book deals with the author's own inventions, machines of war, artillery, the manufacture of cannons, the preparation of gunpowder, and pyrotechnics. Many of the plates illustrate mechanical principles or machinery, very much in the tradition of the other great Renaissance machine books. Occasional light browning but a fine copy. As in all copies of the first edition, nine pages are left blank for further illustrations. On the free front endpaper is a manuscript recipe written at the time of publication of this book. ? Brunet, I, 1064-"volume peu common." Cockle 933.

        [Ordinance forbidding the planting of trees around windmills in the Land van Arkel (in the southwestern corner of the province of Holland) and requiring the removal of existing trees].The Hague, 14 December 1598. Manuscript document in Dutch in brown ink on the skin side of a single piece of sheepskin parchment (36 x 48 cm, folded to 14 x 19 cm).

      Original official ordinance by the knighthood, noblemen and cities of the province of Holland representing the States of Holland (signed by the great statesman Johan van Oldenbarnevelt), giving a detailed picture of the careful balance that had to be struck between individual rights and general good in maintaining the reclaimed Dutch polder lands in the 16th century, in this case concerning water control in the Land van Arkel, a region around the towns of Arkel and Gorinchem and some villages and polder lands to their north and east. The officials had already taken all measures they could independently, improving the existing windmills and building new ones to pump the rising water up into the rivers, but the windmills were unable to perform optimally because willows, orchards and other planted trees on private properties around the windmills were interfering with the wind. The request was granted by the present ordinance. It gave them the authority to forbid further planting within 50 roeden (about 200 metres) of a windmill and to demand the removal of trees already planted within that distance.Although the document itself explicitly refers to the attached seal, no trace of it survives except for the slit cut through the two layers of parchment below the text. The document is in very good condition, with only very minor wear along the folds. An unusually informative ordinance for clearing trees around windmills.

      N. pl., In Bibliopolio Commeliniano, (Colophon at the end: Excudebat Aegidius Radaeus Ordinum Frisiae Typographus Franequerae, 1598), 1598. 4to. (XVI),224;176;80 (recte 78) p. Modern calf antique style 20.5 cm (Ref: STCN p.p. 056031661; Not in VD17; Hoffmann 2,387/88; Ebert 10710; Caillet 5493; Brunet 3,493; Graesse 3,446; Pettegree/Walshby, Netherlandish Books, 16387) (Details: Back gilt and with 5 raised bands. Printer's mark on the title, depicting a woman, the naked truth, seated on a cubus, and holding a radiant sun in her right hand. In her left hand she holds an opened book and a palm leaf. Her feet rest on the globe; the garland of fruit which surrounds her shows a ribbon with the text in Greek: 'Alêtheia Pandamatôr' (Allmighty Truth). Woodcut initials. Text printed in 2 columns, Greek parallel to Latin. At the end have been added 52 pages with 'castigationes et notae' by Arcerius to the 'Life of Pythagoras' and the 'Protrepticae Orationes') (Condition: Boards slightly scratched, endpapers renewed. Some small old ink annotations. Paper yellowing) (Note: This is the 'editio princeps' of the first and second book of a 10 volume encyclopedia on Pythagorism written by the late antique neoplatonist philosopher Iamblichus, ca. 240 - 325 AD, i.e. the 'Biography of Pythagoras' and the 'Introduction to philosophy' (logos protreptikos epi philosophian). 4 of the 10 books survived, the rest is lost. Added are also the 'editiones principes' of 6 letters, now considered to be apocryphical Pythagorean letters, of the women philosophers Theano (3), Mya (1), Melissa (1), and also 1 of Pythagoras himself. This 'editio princeps' was produced by the Frisian scholar Johannes Arcerius, son of Theodoretus, 1538-1604. He was educated on the Schola Latina (of Saint Martin) at Groningen under Regnerus Praedinius. He became the tutor of the sons of a rich Frisian family, and made with them in 1565 an educational tour through France, and there in Besançon he stumbled in the library of the cardinal Antoine Perrenot de Granvelle (p. a1 recto) 'mirabili quodam casu, seu Dei destinatione' upon a Greek manuscript of Iamblichus (p. *2 recto). He immediately saw its uniqueness and importance, and copied it with his own hand. Arcerius studied Latin and Greek and theology, and was appointed Rector of the Hieronymus Gymnasium at Utrecht in 1586. 3 years later he was promoted to a professorship on the recently founded (1585) University at Franeker, where he was asked to give Greek a boost, and to put Franeker on the map. There he had in his first year 8 students, 4 of whom moved with him from Utrecht, among who Johannes Isaacus Pontanus. All living in the house of Arcerius they formed a tight and talented community. Four of them became professor, and the others high state officials. Arcerius also gave his university its first Greek achievement, the 'editio princeps' of a biography the father of philosophy, Pythagoras, by an important Greek author, Iamblichus. (On Arcerius: 'Universiteit te Franeker, 1585-1811', Leeuwarden 1985, p. 452--457, & NNBW 4 58/59) The imprint on the titlepage of this book doesnot mention its place of publishing. In the colophon at the end we find that it was printed on the presses of the Franeker printer Aegidius Radaeus, or Gilles van de Rade. Most libraries mention as place of publishing Heidelberg, some Franeker, sometimes both places are mentioned together, sometimes none at all, or even Amsterdam. A publisher residing in Heidelberg, and a printer working in Frisian Franeker, even for those cosmopolitan days such teamwork seems far-fetched. The place of business of the famous scholarly printer Hieronymus Commelinus was of course Heidelberg, but in 1597, a year before the printing of this book (1598), Hieronymus had died. From 1587 onward he had made his Heidelberg based firm famous with the production of 140 titles of great scholars like Casaubon, Scaliger, Gruter, and Sylburg, with the good use of the manuscripts of the local 'Bibliotheca Palatina'. His wife continued the firm after his death. Hieronymus' cousin Jean Commelin (Johannes Commelinus), also a publisher and an Amsterdam patrician, was asked to help in the settling of his uncle's inheritance, and to look after the firms interests. Until 1604 a great number of scholarly works left the presses at Heidelberg. Then it was discontinued, and Hieronymus huge library was auctioned in the Netherlands in 1607/08. If Johannes Commelinus decided to transfer the project of printing this Iamblichus edition to Franeker, the place of residence of its editor, to make things easier and/or cut expenses, he made a doubtful decision. For this edition obviously did not meet the standards of the great Heidelberg firm. (For Hieronymus Commelinus see NDB 3,333; for Jean Commelin NNBW 10,199/200) We read about complaints about the quality of the text and the Latin translation, and the many errors of the printer. In his 'Benevolo candidoque Lectore' (p. a1 & a2) Arcerius keeps excusing himself for the mistakes he might have made, for, he says, he was completely destitute of help and resources. He keeps asking for understanding and consideration concerning this difficult project. Someone has to be the first and do this extremely difficult and unrewarding work, he argues. He thanks the Dutch scholar Theodorus Canterus, or Dirk Canter, for his help and for having sent him transcripts from the 'Bibliotheca Vaticana', 'ut opinor' he adds cautiously. More than a century later Ludolph Küster, the editor of a much revised, and far better edition of the Iamblichus' 'Life of Pythagoras', pronounced this very harsh judgement on Arcerius and his edition. It is, he says: 'partim injuria temporis, partim librariorum neglentia & imperitia adeo corruptum & deformatum, ut nesciam, an a renatis litteris ullus scriptorum mendis scatens in lucem unquam exierit.' (De Vita Pythagorica liber, edited by L. Küster, Amsterdam 1707, p. *4 recto). The Amsterdam branch of the family continued the 'Commelianum Bibliopolum' from 1597, the year that Hieronymus died, till 1624. (Gruys/De Wolf, Typography & Bibliopolae Neerlandici usque ad annum 1700 Thesaurus, p. 24). VD17 (Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachraum erschienenen Drucke des 17. Jahrhundert) doesnot mention this edition. It is apparantly considered a Dutch edition) (Collation: *-2*4 (leaf 2*4 verso blank), A-2E4, 22A-2Y4, a-f4, g2, h-k4, l2. STCN mentions a leaf chi1 after 2Y4. We have compared it with 4 digital copies, and found that none of them has a leaf ch1) (Photographs on request)

The first book treats in a detailed fashion of the fundamental operations. Unicornus, for example, gives six methods of multiplication... There is a good discussion of the two general methods of dividing, the downward ('a danda') method having as much attention as the galley plan. Fractions are also treated in Book I. Book II deals with the theory of numbers after the Boethian method. Book III treats of roots, surds, and proportion; Book IV, of the rules of three and false; and Book V, of business arithmetic, including exchange, interest, and alligation. ... (The work) is an excellent source for the study of the development of elementary mathematics.

      1598. Early Godefroy Edition of the Corpus Juris Civilis Justinian I (483-565 CE), Emperor of the East. Godefroy, Denis] [1549-1622], Editor. Corpus Iuris [Juris] Civilis A Dio. Gothofredo I.C. Recognitum. [Geneva]: Excudebat G. Laemarius Impensis Haer. Eust. Vignon & I. Chouet, 1598. [xxxvi] pp., 1882 cols.; [32] pp., 872, 614 cols., [12] pp. Main text in parallel columns. Two volumes in one book, each with title pageand individual pagination. Quarto (8-1/4" x 5"). Contemporary paneled pigskin, raised bands and early hand-lettered titles to spine and fore-edge, ties lacking. Soiled, a few minor inkstains, moderate rubbing to extremities, wear to top-edge of rear board, a few short tears to head of spine, corners bumped and worn, a few minor wormholes to binding, hinges cracked. Title pages printed within woodcut architectural borders, first title page printed in red and black, woodcut head and tail-pieces. Moderate toning and light foxing, faint dampstining to margins of some leaves, light soiling to tile page, some edgewear to preliminaries and rear endleaves. Later ownership markings and signatures to front endleaves, early owner signature to head of title page, small later owner stamp to foot. An appealing copy of an important edition. * Later printing of this landmark annotated critical edition, first published in 1583. Godefroy was a jurist, humanist, historian, scholar of Roman law and professor at the Universities of Geneva and Heidelberg. He was also the first to apply the collective name Corpus Juris Civilis to Justinian's works on Roman law, which consists of the four books of the Institutes, the fifty books of the Digest, the twelve books of the Code and the Novels. This imprint is misleadingly designated the second Godefroy edition. It is actually the second Godefroy edition by Laemarius. It is not listed in Adams or the British Museum Catalogue.

      1598. "Rarissima veduta di Castel Sant'Angelo tratta da ""Le miroir du monde, ou Epitome du theatre d'Abraham Ortelis"" di Z. Heyns edito ad Amsterdam nel 1598. La raccolta, un atlante, contiene della carte derivanti dalla produzione di Abraham Ortelius. Curioso il fatto che questa veduta sia la sola inserita nell'atlante. Xilografia, in perfetto stato di conservazione." A very rare 16th Century view of the St. Angelo Castle at the entrance to the Vatican. The work was published by Zacharias Heyns in his rare Le Miroir du Monde, ou, Epitome du Theatre d'Abraham Ortelius, published in Amsterdam in 1598. Zacharias Heyns was the son of Peter Heyns, who wrote the rhyming text for Ortelius' Spieghel Der Werelt, first published in 1577. Zacharias Heyns Le Miroir du Monde . . . was likely an attempt to continue the success of his father, although the maps bear no connection to Ortelius' work. As noted by Burden, all of the maps for this work are woodcuts, making it one of the last atlases to employ this means of printing. The atlas is highly sought after among collectors, prized for its rarity and the unique appearance of its maps. The second edition of 1615 is virtually unknown, with Koeman locating only 1 example at the Bibliotheque Nationale. Amsterdam Amsterdam M. Di Paola, Castel Sant'Angelo nelle sue stampe, p. 93, 29 (descritta come anonima). 175 137

        Discours of voyages into ye Easte & West Indies. London, [printed by John Windet] for John Wolfe, [1598].

      1598. 4 parts in 1 volume. Small 2o (28 x 18 cm). With engraved title-page, 9 engraved folding maps (including a detailed map depicting Arabia, Persia and India) and 3 engraved folding views. All newly engraved after the Dutch edition. Further with 4 woodcut maps in text and engraved maps on the 3 part-titles. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum, later spine-label and ties; recased, with modern endpapers. Kept in modern slipcase. First edition of the English translation of Linschoten's highly important work, opening the East for trade by the Dutch and the English. Until its publication no other book contained any comparable amount of useful information on the East and West Indies and it soon became required reading for all navigators sailing to the East. With chapters on the coast of "Arabia Felix" (that is, the southern coast of the Arabian peninsula), the island of Ormus and Islamic India. Also with a detailed map depicting Arabia, Persia and India by Langren. The interior has been taken from Gastaldi via Mercator's world map of 1569, but has been given interesting improvements: "The surprising fact about the representation of the [Arabian] peninsula is the close resemblance of the outline to that of a modern map when compared with other engraved maps of the time. There is a vague suggestion of the Qatar peninsula, which is not seen again until the nineteenth century" (Tibbets). - The book is divided into four parts. The first treats the East Indies, including eastern Africa and Arabia and extending to regions as far east as Japan. The second book describes the navigation of the coasts of West Africa around the Cape of Good Hope to Arabia, together with the coasts of the New World. Book three, based on the discoveries of the Portuguese Royal pilot Diego Affonso, contains sailing directions from Portugal to India, and instructions for sailing in the East Indies, from island to island. Similar instructions are given for the New World, particularly Brazil and Spanish America. Book four contains detailed information on the taxes and other income that the King of Spain extracted from his territories, both at home and overseas. - With the maps and plates trimmed closely to the edges and only one unobtrusively restored tear. A very good copy, with only a few occasional spots. Binding recased but also in very good condition. Alden/Landis 598/57. Borba de Moraes, p. 488. Sabin 41374. Cf. Nave, Philologia Arabica 22.

        Abrégé des principes de la physique de Descartes

      fin XVIIe siècle. - ______ Format : In-4. Collation : 403 pp. Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné, tranches marbrées. (Reliure de l'époque.). ___. ____ Manuscrit non publié sur la physique et la philosophie de Descartes. C'est une exposition très claire de l'oeuvre de Descartes, et l'auteur cite abondament ses différents ouvrages. Il commente, analyse et parfois critique la pensée cartésienne, mais apparaît comme un de ses partisans. Il expose aussi la physique d'Aristote et de ses "sectateurs", et en montre les erreurs. Il fait appel aux écrits de philosophes de l'Antiquité et de quelques pères de l'église : Saint Augustin, Thomas d'Acquin. Par là, il se montre soucieux d'accorder cette "nouvelle physique" avec les enseignements de l'Eglise. Parmi ses contemporains cités, nous avons relevés : - les oeuvres de "Regius", souvent citées [ i. e. Henri de Roy ou Le Roy, dit Regius (1598-1679), professeur de médecine à l'Université d'Utrecht, Regius a été un des disciples les plus actifs de Descartes.] - Jean-Baptiste Denis. "M. Denis a dit dans une de ses Conférences qu'il a fait cette expérience." [Jean-Baptiste Denis a publié des "Conférences", un périodique scientifique qui rivalisait avec le Journal des savans, entre 1672 à 1674]. - "Cordemoy, Discours de la distinction du corps et de l'âme". [Géraud de Cordemoy (1626 - 1684) est connu pour avoir repensé la théorie cartésienne de la causalité).] Table des chapitres : - Des principes du corps naturel. De la matiére. De la forme. De l'âme. De l'union de l'âme avec le corps. Du mouvement. De la production, continuation du mouvement. De la détermination du mouvement. De la composition du mouvement et de sa détermination. Du dur et du liquide. Du feu. Le manuscrit semble n'avoir jamais été achevé et de nombreux feuillets sont restés vierges en fin du volume. Sur son auteur : Le Ccfr nous révéle la présence d'un manuscrit au titre semblable à la bibliothèque de Marseille : "Abbrégé des principes de la physique de M. Descartes." Avec cette note : On lit au fol. 318 : "Ce traité n'a pas esté achevé à cause que l'autheur est mort en le composant". Il est relié dans un recueil de pièces, provenant du séminaire d'Aix en Provence, dont l'une, au moins, est signée de Louis Thomassin. Louis Thomassin (1619 -1695) était un prêtre de l'Oratoire et cet ordre a joué un rôle prépondérant dans la diffusion de la philosophie de Descartes. Cela n'a donc rien d'étonnant que l'auteur de ce manuscrit soit un membre de l'Oratoire. Dans ses nombreux collèges, l'ordre cultiva les sciences sous l'inspiration de Descartes, contrairement au Jésuites qui s'y opposérent âprement. Malebranche, qui sur tant de points s'inspira de Descartes, appartenait à la congrégation de l'Oratoire. Manques de cuir aux coiffes. Les pages 233 à 280 ont été reliées par erreur après la page 376. Une illustration à la plume p. 242. L'écriture est très lisible. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Le Tout en Quatre Livres. Par Messire Philippes de Mornay, Seigneur du Plessis-Marli. Seconde Edition, reveuë par l'Autheur.

      A La Rochelle Par Hierosme Haultin 1598 1 vol. in-8 de 91-(2)-956 pp., vélin souple à rabats (reliure de l'époque). Deuxième édition revue et augmentée. La première publiée la même année à la même adresse. Ce fameux et important ouvrage de Duplessis-Mornay, un des plus illustres représentants de la Réforme en France, où la messe était attaquée à l'aide de témoignages puisés dans le nouveau Testament dans les Pères et les docteurs de l'Eglise, produisit en France et à Rome une vive réaction. La Sorbonne le condamna ; les jésuites de Bordeaux le déférèrent au Parlement ; toutes les chaires retentirent d'invectives contre l'ennemi de la messe. Une conférence fut arrêtée pour le 4 Mai 1600 à Fontainebleau entre Duplessis-Mornay et Du Perron, évêque d'Evreux. Celui-ci tenta de prouver que l'auteur avait inséré dans son livre une foule de passages tronqués ou falsifiés. Suite au discrédit qui fut infligé à son ouvrage, Duplessis-Mornay se retira à Saumur où il prépara une nouvelle édition. Très bon exemplaire dans sa première reliure ; des rousseurs.

        Africa.

      1598 - Valladolid: Heirs of Diego Fernandez de Cordova, 1598. 365 x 495mm. Very fine impression, restoration to left margin. A very scarce and finely engraved map, prapared by de Solis for a Spanish edition of Botero's 'Le Relationi Universali'. The map is based largely on the work of Ortelius , although a lot of of the names have been changed to Spanish and the title cartouche and vignette sea-battle have been replaced. The two-lake origin of the river Nile appears in Lake Zair and Lake Zaflan. The map is embellished with sailing ships and sea monsters. According to Betz the map is assigned a date of 1598 based on the date of 1598 found on the Americas map from the same book. Cordova was probabl;y due to publish his book in or shortly after 1598, but his death interrupted the publication. The book was then published by the Heirs of Diego Fernandez de Cordova in 1603.

In basso a sinistra, dedica di Dinovo al cardinale di San Giorgio, datata Roma, 29 gennaio 1598; più a destra, l'iscrizione ""La Cit.a di Ferrara e situata per latitudine G.di 41 per longitudine Gradi 33 rivista dil S.

        Argonautica

      1598. Carta storica tratta dal "Parergon" di Ortelius, il primo atlante storico. Molto decorativo il cartiglio del titolo centrato nella parte superiore della mappa. Le mappe della Parergon illustrano i greci romani ed egizianii, così come il passato mitico, e sono il risultato della propria ricerca di Ortelius. In ampi testi al verso delle mappe, Ortelius riassume gli avvenimenti descritti e descrive le sue fonti. Argonautica descrive il viaggio di Giasone, secondo il racconto di Orfeo, ed illustra il percorso per tornare nel Mediterraneo attraverso le Colonne d'Ercole. Come fecero gli antichi, Ortelius accetta il viaggio come fatto storico e non mitologico. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata a mano, in ottimo stato di conservazione. A very nice map of Greece. Very decorative title cartouche centered in the upper part of the map. Three inset maps in upper left - hand corner and lower - right - hand corner, including maps of Europe, Thessaly and Bithynie. From Ortelius' "Parergon", the first historical atlas. The maps of the Parergon illustrate the Greek, Roman, and Egyptian worlds, as well as the mythical past, and were the result of Ortelius's own research. In extensive texts on the versos of the maps, Ortelius summarizes the events depicted and describes his sources. "Argonautica" sets forth the voyage of Jason, according to the pseudo - Orpheus account that takes the voyagers north, up the Don, to the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans and back to the Mediterranean through the Pillars of Hercules. As did the ancients, Ortelius accepts the voyage as historical fact. Anversa Antwerpen M. Van den Broecke "Ortelius Atlas Maps" (2011), n. 226. 490 350

        Gallipoli

      1598. "Magnifica pianta prospettiva di Gallipoli, pubblicata nel volume del Civiates Orbis Terrarum edito a Colonia nel 1598. Nel cartiglio in basso a sinistra, della città si dice essere ""d'aere molto salubre, populosa"", segue poi una rubrica di 19 luoghi notevoli riportati, tra cui la maestosa cattedrale di S. Agata. Sopra il ccartiglio, lo stemma della città con il gallo coronato e il motto latino ""Nec animus fato minor"". Il Civitatie Orbis Terrarum,è il primo atlante dedicato esclusivamente alle piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo, pensato come complemento del Theatrum Orbis Terrarum di Ortelius. Stampato in sei volumi tra il 1572 ed il 1617 ebbe grande fortuna e diffusione, tanto che ne furono stampate diverse edizioni tradotte in latino, tedesco e francese. Le piante derivano da fonti differenti, e riflettono quindi stili differenti. Gli intagli dei rami sono attribuiti a Franz Hogenberg e Simon van de Noevel, il testo è di Georg Braun. Incisione si rame, bella coloritura coeva, in ottime condizioni." A fine map - view of Gallipoli, on the heel of Italy, published in the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum', Cologne, 1598. The cartouche reads: 'The most secure town of Gallipoli has very healthy air and is also very populous. It has 1,800 houses within a radius of just one and a half miles. The entire town lies on a rock, well protected by walls, which are also magnificent to look at due to their design'. The 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' was the first methodical series of town plans, issued in six volumes between 1572 & 1617. The plans were collected from different sources, resulting in a wide range of artistic styles, and were engraved by Franz Hogenberg and Simon van de Noevel, with a text edited by Georg Braun. Designed as a sister publication to the Ortelius atlas, the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum'. Colonia Cologne 510 380

        Nova Pvlcherrimae Civitatis Florentiae Topographia Accvratiss. Delineata

      1598. Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1598, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, alcune pieghe di carta, lievissime abrasioni, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Di derivazione dalla grande pianta di Stefano Buonsignori, questa rarissima pianta della città edita a Venezia alla fine del XVI secolo, non è la ristampa della lastra del Florimi (1595) come sostenuto invece dal Mori - Boffito. Donato Rascicotti o Rasciotti, Rasicotti e Rosigotti era stampatore, editore e commerciante di stampe nativo di Brescia ed attivo a Venezia e forse a Bologna e Roma. Probabilmente può essere identificato anche con Donato Resegata "stampatore di disegni" arrestato a Roma nel 1577 sorpreso a rubare disegni dalla bottega di Antonio Lafrery, e che viveva nella casa dell'editore Lorenzo Vaccari e prima di Mario Cartaro. A Venezia il suo negozio era al Ponte dei Baretteri; nel 1598 ottenne il privilegio del Doge con l'autorizzazione alla stampa. Almagià lo descrive come editore di mappe incise da Giovanni Battista Mazza e come stampatore di lastre dei Bertelli. Sono note anche sue tirature di lastre prima edite dal Tramezzino e Martino Rota. Etching and engraving, 1598 circa, signed on lower right plate. Magnificent work, printed on contemporary laid paper trimmer to platemark, some paper folds and light abrasions, otherwise in good condition. With its origin the great plan of Stefano Buonsignori, this rare work was published in Venice at the end of the XVI century; this is not the reissue of Florimi's plate (1595), as Mori - Boffito stated. Donato Rascicotti or Rasciotti, Rasicotti and Rosigotti was printer, publisher and print dealer; he was born in Brescia but worked in Venice and maybe in Bologna and Rome too. Very likely, he can be identified with Donato Resegata "printer of drawings" who was arrested in Rome in 1577, caught while he was stealing some drawings from Antonio Lafrery's workshop, and who lived in the house of Lorenzo Vaccari and, even before, in that of Mario Cartaro. His shop in Venice was at Ponte dei Baretteri; in 1598 he was granted the Doge privilege with the permission to print. Almagià describes him as the publisher of Giovanni Battista Mazza's maps and the Bertelli's plates. Quite famous are also his editions of the plates already published by Tramezzino and Martino Rota. A very rare map of Florence. Venezia Venice Mori - Boffito pp. 45/47; Bury, The Print in Italy, p. 232. Dimensioni 505x401. 505 401

Mezza pelle di pecora nera XIX mezzo. Autore, titolo e il tempo d'oro. Attrito. Spese di copia. Questa opera di Boccaccio è stato scritto in latino, De casibus virorum illustrium, cioè uomini illustri. Sotto l'influenza di Petrarca, Boccaccio tornò al latino nella seconda parte del suo lavoro (tra il 1365 e il 1366), e ha lasciato la Toscana per il quale aveva fatto tanto. Fu durante questo periodo che compose la biografia di trattati come De genealogia deorum, che riunisce per la prima volta tutte le nozioni mitologiche. Il libro è stato dedicato a e Cosimo de 'Medici. Questi uomini illustri sono di parte all'antichità greca e romana (Le prime copie del Iliade e l'Odissea sono dovuti a Boccaccio, che li ha portati in Grecia.) E l'Antico Testamento. Tra i personaggi che vediamo Agamennone, Cadmus, Giocasta, Priamo, Saul, Atalie, Serse, Alcibiade, Cicerone, Cleopatra, Brunhilde ... Alcuni ritratti sono seguiti da una riflessione sugli abusi della tirannia o la passione, ricchezza, o altri eccessi. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale. Rare.

Cette oeuvre de Boccace a été originellement écrite en latin, De casibus virorum illustrium, c'est à dire Les hommes illustres. Sous l'influence de Petrarque, Boccace revint au latin dans la dernière partie de son oeuvre (entre 1365 et 1366) et abandonna le toscan pour lequel il avait tant fait. C'est durant cette période qu'il compose des biographie et des traités tel que De genealogia deorum, qui rassemble pour la première fois toutes les notions mythologiques. L'ouvrage é été dédié à Cosimo de Medici. Ces hommes illustres font la part belle à l'Antiquité grecque et romaine (Les premières copies de l'Iliade et de l'Odyssée sont dues à Boccace, qui les fit venir de Grèce.) et à l'Ancien Testament. Parmi les personnages on remarque Agamemnon, Cadmus, Jocaste, Priam, Saul, Atalie, Xerxes, Alcibiade, Ciceron, Cleopâtre, Brunehilde...
