        Filippica I e II.

      Filippica I. Carte 4. (s.l. nè data ma 1615). Molto simile alla variante b, ma con alcune differenze. Filippica II. Carte 4. (s.l. nè data ma 1615). Molto simile alla variante d. Cartine colorate del Settecento. Astuccio. Rarissime. Le Filippiche sono la più bella prosa patriottica della nostra letteratura (Ugo Foscolo). La questione del Monferrato diede origine a due scritture di polemica antispagnola e di spirito irredentistico: "Le Filippiche". Nonostante la prematura divulgazione, la stampa venne realizzata non prima del maggio del 1615 in quattro diverse tirature. Il contenuto della Filippica I è una esortazione ai principi italiani ad unirsi per "la causa comune" della libertà della patria, appoggiando il Duca di Savoia, elevato alla funzione di baluardo contro la sopraffazione spagnuola e di "liberatore d'Italia". La Filippica II, di tono più polemico che oratorio, invece dei toni unitari ripropone spunti irredentistici... I motivi antispagnoli, cui peraltro si mescolano elementi antifrancesi, si inaspriscono in puntate antirazzistiche che rilevano la inferiorità sociale e geografica della Spagna... Axs

It is believed that Stow was the first English historian to make systematic use of public records for the purpose of his work and that by this research he did more to advance the study of fifteenth-century England than any other writer of his time. In the emendation by Edmund Howes on page 811 there is a mention of Shakespeare: "Our modern, and present excellent Poets which worthily flourish in their own works, and all of them in my own knowledge lived together in this Queen's reign, according to their priorities as near as I could, I have orderly set down (viz) George Gascoigne Esquire, Thomas Churchyard Esquire, Sir Edward Dyer Knight, Edmund Spencer Esquire, Sir Philip Sidney Knight, Sir John Harrington Knight, Sir Thomas Challoner Knight, Sir Francis Bacon Knight, & Sir John Davie Knight, Master John Lillie gentleman, Master George Chapman gentleman, M.W.

Small paper label pasted on to top left corner of pasted down front free end paper. A very fine and well preserved copy. 5, (7), 94, (1) pp. ¶ The exceedingly scarce first edition of Sauter's seminal work constituting one of the very earliest treatises on bankruptcy, preceeding Thomas Goodinge's "The law against the bankrupts" (1695) - regarded as being the first work in English on the subject - by more than half a century. The work became an immediate success, a second edition was published the same year, and translations into the vernaculars soon followed. This testifies to the appetite in contemporary Europe for a work that tackled the phenomenon of bankruptcy from an economic, juridical, and moral perspective. Sauter here describes that bankruptcy is a phenomenon on the rise and that the primary cause of this is negligent accounting, fraud and deception as the most frequent causes. His position was that the integrity of contracts would then be considered the ultimate foundation of civil society and public order: "[F]idelity in performance of Covenants and Promises is one main foundation of a well ordered Commonwealth. [...] If Bankrupts the Arch-builders of fraud, utterly subvert and take this away, as indeed they do, who doubteth but that the Commonwealth, unlesse prevention be in time used, will shortly be ruinated? [...] If the Bankrupts weaken and violate performance of fidelity [...] the Commonwealth cannot florish, but become a body without a Soule" . (Sauterius 1640, p. 22 [The English translation]).Daniel Sauterius (or Sauter) a Dutch clergyman published the same year a treatise on business ethics.

        L'Idea della architettura universale

      1615. SCAMOZZI, Vincenzo. L'Idea della architettura universale. Two parts in one volume. Part 1: [xvi], 90, [7], 96-128, 125-193,[2], 194-218,[iv],219-352[34]pp. Part 2: [xii],172,[iv], 173-232, 235-269, [v], 271-370, [22] pp. (numerous misnumbered leaves throughout). Illustrated with two engraved title-pages, six engraved title-vignettes (repeated), one printed tavola, eight double-spread engravings (three woodcut and five engraved), 78 full-page illustrations (39 woodcut and 39 engraved), 18 woodcut head-pieces (repeated), and numerous historiated woodcut initials throughout. Folio, 350 x 233 mm, bound in contemporary Italian calf, spine divided into seven compartments with raised bands, skilfully rebacked, with the original spine laid down. Venice: Giorgio Valentino, 1615. |~||~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. Scamozzi's L'Idea della architettura was called the "bulkiest architectural treatise written in Italy" (Wittkower) and next to the Quattro Libri of his teacher Palladio, it was the most influential architectural work of the first part of the seventeenth century. The publication of L'Idea was paid for by Scamozzi himself and is a lavish, beautifully printed book. The text and marginal notes are printed in a roman typeface, the numerous inserted Latin quotations are printed in italic. Each chapter begins with a historiated initial. All of the plates and most of the woodcuts are signed by Scamozzi. "Scamozzi, along with Sebastiano Serlio, Palladio, and Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola, was the most distinguished theorist of the Renaissance; like them he belongs to the artistic culture of northern Italy" (Martha Pollock, in Millard, Italian and Spanish, p. 386). "The last, the longest, and the most ambitious of the Renaissance treatises on architecture, the Idea constitutes a summa of Renaissance thought" (Ibid). Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616) intended to write ten books but only Books I-III and VI-VIII were completed by 1615. Fragments of his remaining four books were incorporated into later editions from Scamozzi's working manuscripts. Since architectural historians have assumed that the later editions cannot be read as Scamozzi would have written them, this 1615 edition has always been treated as the purest expression of Scamozzi's thought. Book I discusses general principles of architecture, Book II urban planning, Book IV contains Scamozzi's influential statement of the five Orders, and Books VII and VIII offers his views on building materials and techniques. A generally fresh, clean copy of a book that is normally found in lamentable condition. With the rare Registro leaf at end, which is frequently lacking. Almost all copies at auction have been either incomplete, in lamentable condition, or both. Avery's Choice ,54. Fowler 292. Millard, Italian 123. Berlin Katalog 2605. Cicognara 651. BAL, RIBA 2917.

        Declaración Magistral sobre las Emblemas de Andrés Alciato con todas las Historias, Antigüedades, Moralidad y Doctrina tocante a las buenas costumbres

      0 - López, Luis, Declaración Magistral sobre las Emblemas de Andrés Alciato con todas las Historias, Antigüedades, Moralidad y Doctrina tocante a las buenas costumbres., Nájera, Juan de Mogastón, 1615. 8º. mayor (22 x 17 cm.), 8 hs. + 472 folios con errores de foliación (en realidad 462 folios) + 7 hs., 210 emblemas ilustrados con xilografías (también con errores en su numeración). Encuadernación en piel de época restaurada. Ejemplar con pequeños restos de humedad y papel tostado por la tinta ferrogálica, habitual en los impresos del seiscentistas españoles. Galerías de polilla restauradas que no afectan al texto. Posee la singularidad de tener la xilografía del Emblema 169 impresa invertida, y no haberse impreso la xilografía del Emblema 190. Con todo, se trata de un ejemplar completo, con amplios márgenes. Primera edición castellana, de los comentarios a los emblemas del humanista milanés, Andrea Alciato. Posteriormente se reimprimirá en tres ocasiones más, todas ellas en Valencia, Gerónimo Villagrasa, 1665 y 1670, y Francisco Mestre, 1684. Alonso López, "El Pinciano", publicó en Lyon en 1549 la primera traducción al castellano de los emblemas de Alciato. Por su parte, Francisco Sánchez de las Brozas, "El Brocense", publicaría en latín sus comentarios de los emblemas, impresos también en Lyon en 1573. El humanista Juan de Mal Lara dispersó numerosas notas a los emblemas tanto en su Philosophía vulgar como en su Descripción de la Galera Real. La edición del extremeño Diego López viene a eclosionar la tendencia de fines del siglo XVI y XVII de incluir extensos y eruditos comentarios en las diferentes ediciones que aparecían en Europa de los emblemas de Alciato. En este caso, y pese al uso de la lengua vernácula, abundan las referencias a citas bíblicas y autoridades greco-latinas, que muestran la gran formación de este maestro de escuela de Valencia de Alcántara. Cabe destacar el carácter ingenuo de gran parte de los xilografías, en algunos casos cercanos a lo naif. En este sentido son destacables los emblemas dedicados a árboles (197-210), cercanos en su estética a los libros de botánica. Palau (nº. 139923), señala altas cotizaciones para esta obra, que además fue el primer libro impreso por Juan de Mongastón en Nájera, en un pequeño taller que compatibilizaba con sus trabajos en Logroño. La librería ofrece por tiempo limitado un descuento del 10%. El precio original de este ejemplar era de 1380 EUR. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Histoire de Louys XII, Roy de France, Pere du Peuple, et des choses memorables aduenues de son Regne, depuis l'an MCCCCXCVIII, iusques a l'an MDXV

      Paris: Abraham Pacard, 1615. First Edition. Full-Leather. Poor. 447, 388 p. Engraved title page vignette and numerous head and tail pieces. Leather binding has raised bands and gold impressing on spine. Front board nearly off. Boards heavily rubbed. Spine head very chipped. Endpapers have ink notations and small hole. Pencil notes and descriptive paper clipping on next page. More ink notes on title page and scholarly marginalia throughout. Dampness stains and thumbing. Pages 385, 413, 441 have chipped bottom corners. Small holes 395-400. Rear endpapers adhered together but more ink notes within. King Louis XII of France (reigned 1498 to 1515) was a popular monarch, called "the Father of the People" as the title page of this book indicates. Having reformed the French legal system, reduced taxes and improved government, it is not surprising that historians Claude de Seyssel and Jean D'Auton felt the need to write his biography. Other writers helped out, as indicated by their occasional names in the margins.

        Amphitheatrum aeternae providentiae divino-magicum. Christiano-physicum, nec non astrologo-catholicum. Adversos veteres philosophos, atheos epicureos, peripateticos et stoicos. -

      Lyon, de Harsy, 1615. In-8. Pergamena antica impressa a secco su assicelle di legno, dorso anticamente rifatto (remboîtage). (24), 336, (8) pp.; lieve e uniforme arrossatura della carta. Rara edizione originale. Vanini nacque a Taurisano presso Otranto e studiò a Napoli e a Padova; «esaltato come libero pensatore, detestato come ateo, annoverato fra gli scettici e fra gli averroisti, il Vanini può venir considerato come un diffusore e ripetitore, in forma esplicita e spesso estrema, della filosofia panteistica della natura del Cardano, del Pomponazzi, del Telesio» (Treccani). Dopo esser fuggito dall'Italia si recò in vari paesi europei e nel 1619 venne arrestato a Tolosa, processato e condannato al taglio della lingua e al rogo. Quest'opera ottenne inizialmente il permesso per essere stampata, ma una sua più attenta lettura poco dopo la pubblicazione, convinse le autorità a vietarla e a distruggere tutti gli esemplari rintracciabili. Caillet 11028. Dorbon 5060: «rarissime édition originale de cet ouvrage du célèbre philosophe et athée...». Rare first edition of this work in which the Italian philosopher professes «to set divine magic, Christian phyiscs, and Catholic astrology over against the ancient philosophers, atheists, Epicureans, Peripatetics, and Stoics...» (Thorndike VI, 568-573). Old blind-stamped vellum over wooden boards, spine repaired (remboîtage); mild uniform toning of the paper.

      per Giorgio Valentino, 1615. In-4 gr. (mm. 351x228), 2 parti in 1 vol., p. pelle bazana settecentesca (risg. rifatti), dorso a cordoni (restaur.) con ricca decorazione e tit. oro su tassello, tagli marmorizzati. "Prima parte": pp. (16),90, 1 c.b.,(5), 96-218, (4), 219-352, 1 c.b.,(16) - "Seconda parte": pp. (12),172,(4), 173-269,(5) 271-370,(20), incluse due bellissime antiporte figur. inc. in rame, con un piccolo ritratto di Scamozzi sotto il titolo. L'opera è composta di soli 6 libri, ciascuno con proprio frontespizio con grande marca tipografica xilografata. Il testo è ornato da pregevoli testate, grandi capilettera figur. e finali inc. su legno. Le illustrazioni, firmate da Scamozzi, sono così suddivise: la prima parte contiene 36 tavole xilografate (di cui 3 a doppia pag.) e 4 a doppia pag. inc. in rame - nella seconda figurano 40 tavole inc. in rame (di cui 1 a doppia pag.) e 6 incise su legno. "Prima edizione" di questa celebre opera. "'L'idea dell'architettura universale' è un testo che ebbe una certa importanza nello sviluppo delle teorie artistiche del Seicento. Concepito dallo Scamozzi in dieci libri, per seguire l'esempio di Vitruvio, uscì solamente in sei (e precisamente I, II, III, VI, VII e VIII). Il primo libro, dopo una lunga introduzione dedicata alla teoria artistica, presenta un elenco storico dei più importanti architetti e scrittori d'architettura. Il secondo è dedicato all'esposizione delle norme teoriche che regolano la costruzione delle città, alle considerazioni sulle caratteristiche peculiari dei luoghi in cui furono edificate le città più importanti d'Europa e contiene un trattato d'architettura militare. Il terzo descrive le costruzioni civili e ne illustra i differenti metodi di edificazione seguiti nei vari Paesi europei. Il sesto libro spiega i cinque ordini, il settimo tratta dei materiali da costruzione e l'ottavo delinea i principi che devono ispirare la direzione dei lavori di architettura". Cfr. Fowler,292 - Schlosser-Magnino, 415-17 - Berlin Katalog,I,2605. Il vicentino Vincenzo Scamozzi (1552-1616), figlio di Giandomenico, editore e studioso delle opere del Serlio, fu architetto di gran fama, attivo nella Repubblica Veneta e al di fuori dei suoi confini. Sono sue le Procuratie Nuove a Venezia; a lui rimonta anche la notevolissima pianta della città e della fortezza di Palmanova nel Friuli, e il progetto per una delle più memorabili e affascinanti architetture dell'Austria, il Duomo di Salisburgo. Lievi aloni sulle prime 8 cc.; più o meno pesanti al marg. infer. di 42 cc. (nel 7° e 8° libro); ultime 2 cc. restaur. al marg. bianco. A parte questi difetti è certamente un buon esemplare.

        Archimedes. Opera quae extant.

      Paris: Apud Claude Morel, 1615. The complete works of Archimedes, the first edition edited by David Rivault. Folio, bound in full calf, title page in red and black. With 551 woodcut illustrations in text, large printer's device on title. This work contains the Greek text with a Latin translation alongside and has extensive explanatory notes. Brunet considered this one of the two finest editions of Archimedes, the founder of hydrostatics and theoretical mechanics. Brunet I 384; Graesse I 180. In excellent condition with light toning to the text. "Together with Newton and Gauss, Archimedes is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians the world has ever known, and if his influence had not been overshadowed at first by Aristotle, Euclid and Plato, the progress of modern mathematics might have been much faster. As it was, his influence began to take full effect only after the publication of this first printed edition which enabled Descartes, Galileo and Newton in particular to build on what he had begun" (Printing and the Mind of Man). He anticipated modern calculus and analysis by applying concepts of infinitesimals and the method of exhaustion to derive and rigorously prove a range of geometrical theorems, including the area of a circle, the surface area and volume of a sphere, and the area under a parabola. Other mathematical achievements include deriving an accurate approximation of pi, defining and investigating the spiral bearing his name, and creating a system using exponentiation for expressing very large numbers. He was also one of the first to apply mathematics to physical phenomena, founding hydrostatics and statics, including an explanation of the principle of the lever. He is credited with designing innovative machines, such as his screw pump, compound pulleys, and defensive war machines to protect his native Syracuse from invasion.

      Lisbon, Por Pedro Crasbeeck, 1615 [colophon dated 1614 on leaf 147 verso]. - 4°, later seventeenth- or early eighteenth-century speckled sheep (spine wormed and defective in three of five compartments, corners worn; label missing), spine with raised bands, some gilt, text-block edges sprinkled red. Title page within typographical border, with typographical vignette in the form of a cross above imprint. Woodcut initials. Typographical headpiece. Numerous woodcut tailpieces. Minor marginal worming to a considerable number of leaves, never affecting text. Occasional very light small waterstains. In good to very good condition. Old ink inscription in blank portion of title page: "Este livro he do // uso do mosteiro // de S. Joseph". (12), 149, (1 blank), 147, (1 blank, 24) ll. *** Second edition in Portuguese, reprinted from the original Lisbon: Pedro Crasbeeck, 1611 edition.Bell writes that the mantle of Frei Thomé de Jesus, the most celebrated preacher of his time, "fell upon Francisco Fernandez Galvão (1554-1610), the prose of whose Sermões . . . is admirably restrained and pure." The author, a native of Lisbon, had evident oratorical talent at a rather early age: when he lectured at Coimbra soon after receiving his degrees there, his college audiences were held in rapt silence for as long as he spoke. After a dozen years as a royal preacher he left for Rome in 1585, where his skill was compared with that of Francisco Panigarola, Bishop of Asti. In 1590, when the Pope named him archdeacon of Villa Nova de Cerveira (archbishopric of Braga), he returned to Portugal, where he again found favor with the royal family. Fernandes Galvão bequeathed his manuscripts, including these sermons, to Amador Vieira, a long-time member of his household, with permission to publish them if he so desired; the word "traduzidos" on the title page is hence misleading, since Vieira collected rather than translated them. Innocêncio comments, "Estes Sermões são muito estimados, e o seu auctor tido em conta de um dos melhores theologos e prégadores, que no seu tempo floreceram entre nós. Doutrina solida . . . exposta em estilo conveniente, e adequado aos assumptos, com linguagem mui pura, corecta, e copiosa . . ."The preliminary leaves include two sonnets to the author in Portuguese by Christovão Garcia Frões and Francisco Nunes de Avila, as well as two neo-Latin epigrams, the first by Fr. Isidor Barreira, the second unsigned. There are also two leaves of dedication, and an eleven page "Prologo ao lector".*** Arouca G11 (calling for [11], 149; 147, [24] ll., and citing a single copy in the BN, Lisboa).

        Le mechaniche dell'illustrissimo sig. Guido Uballdo De' Marchesi. Tradotte in volgare dal Signor Filippo Pigafetta nelle quali si contiene la vera Dottrina di tutti gli istromenti principali da mover pesi grandissimi con picciola forza. A beneficio di chi si diletta di questa nobilissima scienza e massimante di capitani di guerra, ingegnieri, architetti d'ogni artefice, che intenda per via di machine far opre meravigliose e quali sopranaturali. Et si dichiarano i vocaboli & luoghi più difficili

      appresso Evangelista Deuchino, 1615. In-8°, pp. (8), 240, bella marca tipografica incisa raffigurante due ancore in mare unite da nastro recante motto: His sufulta, numerose illustrazioni nel testo, l'ultima carta bianca è compilata con appunti manoscritti, legatura in piena pergamena con titolo manoscritto al dorso, restauro integrativo all'angolo inferiore del piatto superiore, carte di guardia anteriori rinnovate. Seconda edizione in volgare. L'opera costituisce la prima trattazione sistematica dell'argomento. Presentata come un completamento degli studi svolti dal suo maestro Commandino, essa delinea in un breve schizzo lo sviluppo storico della meccanica e sottolinea a più riprese la centralità dell'insegnamento archimedico... Dal punto di vista metodologico insisteva sulla inscindibile complementarità nello studio della meccanica tra dimostrazione matematica e considerazione fisica: si delineava in tale modo su questi presupposti il tentativo di una trattazione rigorosamente geometrica dei problemi, sottoposta al vaglio costante dell'esperienza... L'importanza attribuita dall'autore alla verifica fornita dall'esperienza appare chiara nella discussione di alcuni problemi relativi all'opera, sollevati da Giacomo Contarini : in una lettera del 1580 al senatore veneziano, lo scienziato affermava il costante controllo sperimentale cui venivano sottoposte le sue conclusioni "...prima che io habbia scritto cosa alcuna sopra le mechaniche, mai (per non far errore) ho voluto determinar cosa alcuna per minima che ella sia, se prima io non vedeva con effetto che la esperienza si confrontasse apunto con la demonstratione, e di ogni minima cosa ne ho fatto la sua esperienza". Il Pigafetta, nelle note aggiunte alla sua traduzione delle Mechaniche, ricorderà che Guido Ubaldo, per controllare una sua dimostrazione, aveva fatto "sottilissimamente lavorare bilancie... una delle quali ho io veduto in mano dell'illustre signor Gio. Vicenzo Pinello, mandatagli dall'istesso autore". Treccani Il Guido Ubaldo ebbe numerosi contatti con Galileo il quale si era rivolto a lui per sottoporgli alcuni teoremi relativi al centro di gravità dei solidi, destinati a "supplire a quello che si desiderava nel libro del Comandino" dedicato all'argomento.

Rare. ESTC S107361 locates 24 copies only (with more than 1 copy in a few institutions) STC 6361Sweeney 1327 ('Important & Rare'). Collation: pi², *¹², A-3B² with the leaves pi1 and *12 blanks (with the latter present in this copy).In this copy, as in most, leaf 84 has caption title "Hill. 4. Iacobi The case of præmunire .." and the preceding page (2T1v) has no tailpiece.There exists a variant issue in which the book ends on 2T1v which in that case then has a tailpiece. Davies (1570-1626), distinguished poet, lawyer and historical writer, came to Ireland as Solicitor General 1603-6, and as Attorney General, 1606-19. He travelled extensively throughout Ireland, both on circuit and in the preparations for the Ulster Plantation after the Flight of the Earls in 1607, and he spent much of his leisure studying the Irish history and institutions. From these twin sources was derived the knowledge of the country and interest in its affairs that distinguish his writings. Best known is his Discovery of the True Cause why Ireland was never entirely Subdued, 1612, which was followed in 1615 by this important Reports of Cases. Davies "worked to consolidate and perpetuate the military conquest by a series of judicial decisions which transformed the legal and administrative structure of the island. In cases brought before the central law courts in Dublin, Davies' arguments compelled the Irish judiciary to eliminate the Gaelic law and to assimilate the autonomous Gaelic lordships, to reduce corporate liberties and franchises, to impose religious conformity, and to create a national monetary system. In 1615 the attorney general presented these revolutionary decisions in his publication of the Irish Law Reports" [Pawlisch]. The woodcut diagram shows the genealogical succession in tanistry case. The book was reprinted in 1628, and 1674 but "the significant difference though is that the eloquent commentary on the common law prefaced to this, the first book of Irish case law, is to be found only in the 1st edition. Sadly though the Common Law offered no protection to 'the mere Irish', as one had to belong to one of the 'quinque sanguines', ie. the O'Neills, O'Connors, O'Briens, O'Meloghlins or MacMurroughs to be able to bring a miscreant to justice" [Sweeney Ireland and the Printed Word 1475-1700]. The cases range over such as tanistry, taxes on merchandise, legal tender, legitimacy and 'bastardy', the custom of gavelkind, etc. Franckton (fl. 1600 - d1620), King's Printer in Ireland 1604 - 1618, was one of the most significant of early printers in Ireland. His output was small but included most importantly the first edition of the New Testament in Irish Tiomna Nuadh (1603) and the Book of Common Prayer in Irish Leabhar na nurnaightheadh gcomhchoidchiond (1608), both with Irish types partly paid for by Queen Elizabeth, as well as this work by Davies.

        Fundamemta [sic !] arithmetica et geometrica cum eorundem usu. With numerous figures, diagrams and initials in wood-cut

      Ludolph van CEULEN: Fundamemta [sic !] arithmetica et geometrica cum eorundem usu. In varii problematis, geometricis, partim solo linearum, ductu, partim per numeros irrationales, & tabulas sinuum, & algebram solutis. Translated into Latin by Willebrord Snell. With numerous figures, diagrams and initials in wood-cut. Leiden: Jacob Marcus 1615. Crown 4to (25:18 cm) [1 not num. leaf (title)], p. 1-31, [not num. p. 32], p. 33-79, [not num. p. 80-84 or leafs Li and Lii (caption title, dedication)], p. 85-135, [not num. p. 136], p. 137-269 (pag. error „2014" = 214), [1 not num. p.] Contemporary cardboard binding with hand-written spine title. 1st Latin edition of this posthumously published important treatise by mathematician, fencing champion and professor for military engineering at the Leiden engineering school Ludolph van Ceulen (1539-1610), translated from the original Dutch into Latin by his widow Adriana Symonsz in cooperation with van Ceulens pupil Willebrord Snell (1580-1626). A humanist scholar more than a practitioner like his master, Snell not only translated the original Dutch edition published in the same year, but also adapted, commented and even criticised it to some extent. This is why preceded Latin edition is a veritable dialogue between two approaches to mathematical science in the early modern period. Van Ceulen nowadays remains famous for his calculations of the number π, which he worked out to 33 points of decimals in the present work. - 2 leafs with the dedication by Symonsz, in this edition printed by Marcus originally bound in after the title leaf, are missing (see copy at BSB). Also in 1615 another issue with the same pagination but varying title pages was printed by Colster (see copy at Museo Galileo, Firenze). Cardboard binding with extensive traces of use and with worm holes, blank end leafs missing, title page with one small fault at lower margin, last 3 leafs loose and torn at folds, paper moderately foxy and time-stained, some ink marginalia. Although well available in institutional holdings worldwide according to OCLC, this book is quite rarely offered for sale, as indicate only 5 historical auction results in JAP (1956, 1964, 1975, 1980, 1981).

Binding tight and firm. A very good copy. A translation by William Ward (parts 1-3) and Richard Androse (part 4) of a French version of Girolamo Ruscelli's famous Italian work "De' secreti del Reverendo Donno Alessio Piemontese", first published in Venice in 1555 in four parts. Our work is in five parts, parts 2-4 have separate dated title pages; the fifth part has a caption title; foliation and register are continuous. The title pages to the second, third and fourth parts bear the imprint "Printed at London by W. Stansby, anno Dom. 1614." The first three parts were first published separately in English translation, beginning in 1559 and the four parts were first published together in English in 1595. Our edition contains an additional fifth part attributed in the title to "Mayster Alexis of Piemont" but not found in the original Italian editions nor the English edition of 1595. It is generally assumed that Alessio Piemontese was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli (1500 - 1566), Italian humanist and cartographer. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an 'Academy of Secrets' that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli's academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. His book is one of the earliest and most popular of the Books of Secrets that appeared in the 16th century. It ran into over one hundred editions and was translated into Latin, French, English, German, Spanish and Polish. It contained hundreds of medical recipes including against the plague and treating putrefying wounds, plus numerous household hints including recipes for removing stains, and many technical recipes on metallurgy, gilding and silvering, alchemy, dyeing, making perfume and cosmetics.
