PARUTA (Paolo)
Venetia, Domenico Nicolini, 1599. 2 parties en un fort volume in-4, pleine basane marbrée (dos refait, plats d'origine conservés), (22) f. dont titre, 636 p., (1) f. de colophon et 21 p., (1) p. de colophon, impression en italique, lettrines historiées, bandeaux et culs de lampe, portrait de l'auteur en grande vignette de titre. Edition originale posthume de l’œuvre principale de Paolo Paruta, publiée un an après sa mort, prolongement des recherches entreprises par Machiavel. En théoricien de la raison d’Etat, l'auteur étudie les causes de la grandeur et de la décadence de l’Empire romain qu’il compare à la république vénitienne, pour conclure en faveur de cette dernière. Si les institutions politiques varient inévitablement selon le lieu, les circonstances et les moeurs, la personnalité du souverain et sa « virtù » doivent constituer un exemple absolu pour ses administrés. L’ouvrage est cité comme l’une des sources de Montesquieu. A la suite, sous pagination séparée: un 'Soliloquio', intéressante méditation de l’auteur sur son propre parcours et sa vie passée, sans doute inspirée par Saint Augustin. Homme d’État et historien vénitien, Paolo Paruta fut historiographe de Venise, sénateur, gouverneur de Brescia, ambassadeur et procurateur de Saint-Marc. (Adams, P.363. Brunet, IV, 392. Graesse, V, 144). Quelques petits soulign. anciennes au crayon en marge. Très bon exemplaire. [Attributes: First Edition]

Bound in later 3/4 calf backed cloth, rubbed and nicked. Two bookplates. Title with woodcut device, several engraved initials and head-or-tailpieces. Contemporary name on title-page: Henry Bradshaw which is some soiled. There is a note on the blank: "From the Marple Library, principally collected by Bernard Bradshaw, and with the autograph of his nephew Henry Bradshaw. Jas Wopley. Some minor soiling but a very good clean copy with substantial margins. "STC 12459, Printing and the Mind of Man (1561 edition) 85. The first complete edition was published in 1567, in Venice. "Guicciardini wrote the first history of Italy within the larger context of the European system of states and thus demonstrated the synchronistic interdependence of political events all over the continent. He was less interested in the facts ... than in their causes and effects... (PMM). Guicciardini's history "remains the most solid monument of the Italian reason in the 16th century, the final triumph of the Florentine school of philosophical Historians which included Machiavelli, Segni.".

Bologna: Her[itiers] di Gio[vanni] Rossi, 1599. Second edition, first Bologna edition. Woodcut IHS device on title-page, decorative initials and woodcut illustration of crucifix. 119, [1] pp. Collation: A-G^8 H^4. 8vo. Later drab paper over flexible boards. Light toning and foxing to first few leaves, small wormholes at lower margin throughout, a few holes filled in, paper repair at margin of B2, natural flaw to lower corner of H1. In a custom black morocco-backed slipcase and chemise. Second edition, first Bologna edition. Woodcut IHS device on title-page, decorative initials and woodcut illustration of crucifix. 119, [1] pp. Collation: A-G^8 H^4. 8vo. The Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan. A rare work by the Portuguese Jesuit Luis Froes, addressed to the general of the order Claudio Acquaviva and relating the execution of 26 Christians in Japan on February 5, 1597. The so-called Twenty-Six Martyrs of Japan - six Franciscan missionaries, seventeen Japanese neophytes and three Japanese Jesuits - were crucified in Nagasaki on the orders of Hideyoshi Toyotomi. The bodies were left hanging for months outside the busy harbor to serve as a warning to other converts and missionaries. The grim spectacle became a common motif in Japanese textiles during the following decade. Persecution of Catholics resumed again in 1613 and culminated in 1640 with the destruction of the mission. The 26 Martyrs were canonized in 1862 and a museum and monument to the martyrs was erected in Nagasaki in 1962. Froes (1548-1597) arrived in Kyoto in 1565 following a decade spent in Goa and South East Asia. … [Click Below for Full Description]

POMODORO, Giovanni.
Rome: Apresso Stefano de Paulini, 1599. First edition. Hardcover. First edition, first issue, of this finely illustrated manual of Euclidean geometry and its practical applications for surveyors, architects and others, unusual for being printed in folio, and a rather large folio for the period. The first plate illustrates surveying and measuring instruments; this is followed by a series of plates with Euclidean geometrical diagrams, and then by attractive plates of surveying and measuring problems, including architectural plans and elevations of buildings and streets. Many of the surveying scenes include figures in gentlemanly or military costumes or nude. The first 44 plates were designed by Pomodoro, but he died before the work was complete and the text was provided by Giovanni Scala (1547-1600), who also supplied a further seven plates. The fame of Pomodoro's treatise is attested by the fact that, just one year after its publication, it was cited by the architect Giorgio Vasari the Younger (1562-1625) (the nephew of the art historian of the same name) in his manuscript <i>Raccolto … di varii instrumenti per misurare con la vista</i>: six of the 76 folios of the manuscript refer to Pomodoro, and Vasari traced illustrations from Tavolas I and XLI-XLIV (Brusaporci, p. 216). This is a very rare book: OCLC lists 5 copies in US (Burndy, Cornell, Harvard, Iowa State, Michigan); COPAC lists BL and Wellcome only; ABPC/RBH record only one copy sold at auction since the Honeyman sale (Christie's, 6 June 2001, lot 384, £4230, modern binding).

METEREN, Emanuel van.
First Latin edition, with Frans Hogenberg's original early map of the Low Countries and a very rare additional portrait of Van Meteren by Hendrik Hondius the Elder, dated 1599. Van Meteren's History first appeared in a 1593 German translation by the same publisher, based on an unauthorized Dutch text. The Latin translation of the German was updated with events up to 1598 without Van Meteren's knowledge. Mylius's Cologne editions include Hogenberg's original map, engraved ca. 1587. The first authorized edition, in the original Dutch, appeared in 1599 in Delft, and includes a copy of Hogenberg's map. Van Meteren's work was the first history of the Netherlands to treat the revolt against the Spanish up to the foundation of the Dutch Republic but was banned by the States-General, though the ban was lifted six months later. With the bookplate of Boies Penrose and the names of J. Hoare and Thomas Smith on first fly-leaf and title-page. Bottom of spine damaged; some old annotations in the margins; some stains. Good copy.

REISCH Gregorio
Somascho, 1599. in-4, pp. (24), 1138, leg. m. pelle post. Front. a stampa rossa e nera con piccola marca tipogr., iniz. ornate, car. corsivo. Con una tav. doppia f.t. (teoria musicale), numerose belle fig. silogr. a mezza e piena pag. n.t. (particolarmente interessanti quelle relative all'astronomia, all'architettura, all'astrolabio e quella a pag. 410 con l'emisfero dell'America: «Mundus Novus»); innumerevoli piccole fig. schematiche qua e là. Prima traduzione italiana curata da G.P. Gallucci (nello stesso anno il Barezzi ristampò l'opera, lasciandovi la stessa dedica e la stessa composizione tipogr., mutando solo il foglio di titolo). La vasta dottissima opera è una sorta di enciclopedia che compendia tutte le conoscenze dell'epoca, di fondamentale importanza nell'evoluzione e nella divulgazione della scienza e del pensiero umano. Ai 12 libri (dedicati alle 12 scienze canoniche: grammatica, dialettica, aritmetica, musica, geometria, astronomia, etc.) si aggiungono qui (da pag. 793 alla fine) 25 nuovi brevi, ma interessanti trattati d'argomento per lo più scientifico. Questa autorevole traduzione del Gallucci rese finalmente comprensibile ad una grande parte degli italiani quest'opera enciclopedica che ebbe grande diffusione nella sua versione latina. (Un segno di tarlo marginale sui primi e ultimi fogli; qualche raro foglio leggermente brunito, ma ottimo esemplare). Gli esemplari completi ed in buone condizioni, di quest'opera, sono rari, a causa dell'uso pratico a cui erano destinati. (Smith).

Johann Feyerabends, Frankfort am Main, 1599. Small quarto. (iv), (148)ff. First and only edition. Brunet calls this compilation of 293 wood engravings "rare et fort curieux." Amman, whose career flourished after his move to Nuremburg in 1561, succeeded Virgil Solis as artist for the printer Carl Sigmund Feyerabends. Originally intended for instructional use, this book, whose images include costumes, potentates, and emblematic devices, is rarely encountered complete. This is only the second complete copy to appear on the market in over twenty years. Bound in full straight-grain blue morocco, with gilt and blind borders. On both panels is an armorial device featuring a winged griffin beneath a pair of crowns. The armorial device belonged to George Spencer-Churchill, 5th Duke of Marlborough and Marquess of Blandford, and great-great-grandfather of Winston Churchill. In order to pay off the debts amassed because of unchecked spending, R.H. Evans sold the contents of Spencer-Churchill's White Knights Library in 1819 and 1820. This volume was sold on June 7th, 1819 for one pound and nineteen shillings. Sometime later, it was owned by Henry Huth-his leather booklabel is on the front paste-down. A member of the Philobiblion and Roxburghe Clubs, Huth assembled a collection rich in diversity. He chose only exemplary copies, as he felt that imperfect books were "the lepers of a library." Carefully washed, leaves show only minor soiling and spotting, and the binding exhibits only the slightest shelfwear. A.e.g. Overall, a fine copy of a truly rare book with a fine provenance.

Nel primo dei quali si tratta della falsa tramutazione sofistica: Nel secondo della utile tramutazione detta reale usuale: Nel terzo della divina tramutazione detta reale Filosofica. Aggiuntovi di nuovo la Concordanza de Filosofi, & loro Prattica; nella quale, si vede i gradi, & termini di esso divino magistero, & della verissima compositione della Filosofia Naturale, con la quale ogni cosa diminuta si riduce al vero Solificio, & Lunificio. Brescia, Pietro Maria Marchetti, 1599. in-4, pp. (16), 231, (1), legatura coeva in pergamena. Terza edizione, aumentata della ''Concordanza de Filosofi'' (opuscoli in genere attribuiti ad Arnaldo di Villanova come il Rosario de' Filosofi, il Novo Lume e il Magisterio et Allegrezza all'inclito Re d'Aragona), di questo libro alchemico di grande interesse. L'opera contiene alcune delle pi? curiose immagini della iconografia magica e alchimistica. I ''sogni'' del Nazari raccontano il passaggio di un neofita attraverso il regno della falsa alchimia sofistica e quello dell'utile alchimia quotidiana per prepararsi a un pi? alto livello di alchimia divina, detta reale filosofia, che riguarda soprattutto la rigenerazione spirituale dei suoi praticanti. Xilografie altamente suggestive illustrano paesaggi misteriosi, fenomeni straordinari e mostri allegorici che l'adepto incontra nel suo viaggio onirico. Esse costituiscono un complemento simbolico del testo, un codice alle procedure segrete messe in atto dal ''sognatore'' alla ricerca della pietra filosofale.

Scaligeri, Camillo [pseud. of Adriano Banchieri].
Barezzo Barezzi, 1599. Satiric tribute to the noble donkey, inspired by the "famosa, et eccelsa . . . Signora Torre delli Asinelli" and written by a true Renaissance man who for this work presented himself as King Attabalippa, a fancifully mythic European conception of Atahualpa, last emperor of the Incas. Banchieri, a Benedictine monk, was a notable composer, organist, and music theorist as well as a poet and playwright -- and => the copper-engraved title-page of this edition features portions of a six-part canon to be sung by King Donkey and five other animals. In addition, the descriptions of the dog, the horse, the lion, the monkey, and the elephant in the first part of the work are illustrated with in-text woodcuts, and the second part opens with => a woodcut of the animals processing with pomp, circumstance, and a snare drum. This is an early edition, following the first of 1592. As is generally reported of other copies, not to mention strongly suggested by various bibliographies, La Nobile & Honorata Compagnia delli Briganti dalla Bastina is not present here despite its mention on the title-page. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Edward Davies Davenport (1778-1847, "Time deum et honora regem"). Most recently the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Scaligeri, Camillo [pseud. of Adriano Banchieri].
Venetia: Barezzo Barezzi, 1599. 4to (19.7 cm, 7.75"). [4], 44, [3 (index)] ff.; illus. Satiric tribute to the noble donkey, inspired by the "famosa, et eccelsa . . . Signora Torre delli Asinelli" and written by a true Renaissance man who for this work presented himself as King Attabalippa, a fancifully mythic European conception of Atahualpa, last emperor of the Incas. Banchieri, a Benedictine monk, was a notable composer, organist, and music theorist as well as a poet and playwright — and => the copper-engraved title-page of this edition features portions of a six-part canon to be sung by King Donkey and five other animals. In addition, the descriptions of the dog, the horse, the lion, the monkey, and the elephant in the first part of the work are illustrated with in-text woodcuts, and the second part opens with => a woodcut of the animals processing with pomp, circumstance, and a snare drum.    This is an early edition, following the first of 1592. As is generally reported of other copies, not to mention strongly suggested by various bibliographies, La Nobile & Honorata Compagnia delli Briganti dalla Bastina is not present here despite its mention on the title-page.    Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Edward Davies Davenport (1778–1847, "Time deum et honora regem").

Opsopoeus, Johannes, ed.
No publisher/printer [Compagnie de la Grand' Navire], 1599. Fame? Misfortune? Wealth? Life? Death? The Sibylline Oracles knew all, but understanding their pronouncements was not always easy. The efforts of scholar Onofrio Panvinio (1529-68), translator Sebastien Castellion (1515-63), and editor Johannes Opsopäus (1556-96) are brought together here and are supplemented by => twelve finely engraved portraits of "the oracles" by Karel van Mallery (1571-ca. 1635). The pronouncements are here in the original Greek, with Latin translation (including sidenotes) on the facing page. These are enhanced by Panvinio's study of the Oracles, extensive elogia (testimonies by the ancient authors Plato, Ovid, Aristoteles . . . ), and Mallery's engravings of the sibyls, all preceding the actual printing of the prophecies with notes and supplemental material by Opsopäus. The volume begins with a most handsome emblematic engraved title-page signed by Mallery involving a ship at sea against a sky labeled "Lutetia" (for Paris) surmounting an elaborate architectural frame containing the title and incorporating elegant symbolic ladies and more, followed on the next leaves by a dedication to the esteemed French collector Jacques-Auguste de Thou (Thuanus, 1553-1617). Beautiful floriated woodcut initials, factotum initials, head- and tailpieces decorate the text, which is an => exquisite example of printing, using Claude Garamont's grecs du roi. It seems that there were related texts printed at the same time that are sometimes found bound with this in a variety of combinations, but not uni … [Click Below for Full Description]

Doge e Govern. Republ. Genova Segretario Giovanni Costa
(Autografo) Lettera Doge e Governatore Repubblica di Genova a mezzo suo Segretario Giovanni Costa. Genova, 19/10/ 1599. In-4°, 4 pp., 17 righe di testo con data e firma del suo Segr. Giovanni Costa. Al verso è presente l' indirizzo per l' invio e timbro in ceralacca. In ottimo stato di conservazione. COSTA, Giovanni Andrea. - Figlio di Giovanni Giacomo, nacque a Genova verso la metà del sec. XVI; intrapresa la carriera di notaio, si iscrisse nel 1577 alla matricola dell'arte. Coloro che aspiravano all'ammissione al Collegio dovevano essere cittadini genovesi, aver fatto pratica per quattro anni presso un notaio già iscritto e aver raggiunto i ventidue anni; essi dovevano, inoltre, superare un esame per poter aspirare ad una delle dodici "vacature" che, dopo un anno (e, comunque, non prima dei venticinque anni), permettevano di ottenere l'ingresso nel Collegio, previo il superamento di altri due esami. Il C. collaborò, come notaio, con l'ufficio di Corsica nel 1577 e 1578, dopodiché fu nominato cancelliere di Aiaccio, affiancando Cristoforo De Fornari, commissario intorno alle fabbriche di torri in Corsica. Nel 1581 assistette Pietro Battista Cattaneo, governatore dell'isola, risiedendo a Bastia e documentando l'opera di pacificazione svolta da questi per placare le violente rivalità tra le famiglie corse. A Bastia rimase sino al maggio 1582, quando tornò a Genova, proseguendo la sua attività presso la scribania del notaio Giovanni Agostino Morinelli e poi presso quella del notaio Abraham Ripanigra. Nel novembre 1583divenne nuovamente cancelliere di Aiaccio con il commissari … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tabula Asiae VI- della Geographia di Tolomeo.(Arabia Felix & Deserta / Ethiopia / Persia / Carmania / Persian Gulf / Ptolemy / etc.) Issued Venice, [1561] 1599 by Ruscelli & Rosaccio. Italian text on verso. Lovely original 16th century antique engraved map. Arabian Gulf is distorted, water courses are exaggerated. The scarce late issue of the 1561 plate (a close examination of details reveals this), but the plate was not used again after this 1599 printing and thus this map has no further appearances or printings. In the stipple engraved ocean area below the ship is visual evidence as evidence of a crack in the engraving plate, which is seen as a thin black line. With a prominent sea monster and tall mast sailing ship in the Indian Ocean. Interior terrain shown as mountain ranges, various tiny islands named, tip of East Africa bottom center. Mostly very clean, well preserved and attractive example. Trivial light old stain in top blank margin at centerfold and along edges, otherwise as issued. Original fold line. A survey of the Map Price Record reveals that Ruscelli maps from the 1598-99 printing are offered much less frequently than earlier printings (1561, 62, and 74), at a ratio of approx. 1 later printing for every 5 offered from earlier editions. This would appear to indicate the later editions may have been printed in far smaller numbers due to increasing market competition and thus had a much smaller distribution.

Aldrovandi, Ulisse
Seite 221/222 wahrscheinlich 1599, 23x34 cm, Ecken/Kanten bestossen, randlädiert und eingerissen, vergilbt, leicht fleckig, gewellt (Feuchtigkeit), kolorierter HolzschnittUlisse Aldrovandi (auch bekannt als Ulysses Aldrovandus * 11. September 1522 in Bologna 4. Mai 1605 ebenda) war ein italienischer Arzt und Naturforscher. Ulisse Aldrovandi erlernte zuerst das Kaufmannshandwerk und studierte danach in Bologna Jura, in Padua Philosophie und in Rom Medizin. Dort wurde er 1549 der Häresie verdächtigt und saß kurz im Gefängnis, danach kehrte er zurück nach Bologna. Im selben Jahr noch weckte der Pisaner Luca Ghini sein Interesse an der Botanik, im Folgejahr Guillaume Rondelet sein Interesse an der Zoologie. 1552 wurde er Doktor der Philosophie, 1553 Doktor der Medizin (beides Universität Bologna), 1554 wurde er Lektor. 1555 wurde er Professor für Philosophie und 1556 zusammen mit Cesare Odoni für Medizinische Botanik. Von 1571 bis 1600 bekleidete er den Lehrstuhl für Medizin an der Bologneser Universität, wo er 1567 den Botanischen Garten gründete, einen der ersten überhaupt. Aldrovandi unternahm mit seinen Studenten Exkursionen auf die Insel Elba, nach Livorno und in die Veroneser Alpen und legte ein Herbarium sowie ein Naturalienkabinett an. Neben Conrad Gesner gilt Ulisse Aldrovandi als einer der Begründer der modernen Zoologie. Vor allem seine sehr detaillierten systematischen Untersuchungen machten ihn bekannt. Das Hauptwerk von Ulisse Aldrovandi ist die aus elf Bänden bestehende Historia animalium. Er selbst bearbeitete nur die Vögel, die Insekten und die niederen T … [Click Below for Full Description]
