PHAEDRUS
Robert Estienne, 1617. PHAEDRUS. Fabularum Aesopiarum libri V. Nova editio. Edited N. Rigault. Paris: Robert Estienne III, 1617 4to, [8], 99pp. Printed in red and black throughout. 18th-century tan calf, professionally and tastefully rebacked; from the library of the Duke of Devonshire, with the Chatsworth bookplate. Title page has the ownership inscription Ex libris Thomae Beal Comensalis in Acad[emia] Oxoniensis ; occasional light soling, 4 leaves with small marginal tears, not affecting text. Important edition of the Fables of Phaedrus, and a typographic masterpiece, elegantly printed in red and black throughout. The editor, Nicolas Rigault (1577-1654), used the Codex Remensis, a ninth-century manuscript which was subsequently destroyed by fire (in 1774); consequently, this edition remains one of the direct sources for the readings of this manuscript, which Rigault records on 30 pages at the end (see L. D. Reynolds, ed., Texts and Transmission: Survey of the Latin Classics [Oxford, 1983], p. 301). Rigault's epistle to J. A. de Thou is reprinted from the edition of 1599, as is that from Pierre Pithou to his brother François, from the editio princeps of 1596. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Usque, Abraham ben Salomon (ed. & translation by)
Amsterdam: Dauid Abenatar Mello / David Abenatar Melo (Fernão Alvares Melo), 5377. Hardcover. von- to fine. 16mo. 327pp. [1]. Handsomely rebound in modern dark brown leather boards with blind stamped tooling on the covers and spine. Gilt lettering over tan leather labels on the spine. Title page with decorative woodblock borders and motifs. This is the 1617 Spanish-language edition of the complete Jewish High Holiday prayer book (Machzor) based on the original Spanish translation by Abraham Usque, (originally printed in Ferarra, Italy in 1553). This publication contains the Selichot prayers (daily penitential prayers leading up to the high holidays) added to the content of the original edition. This following two Amsterdam printings of the Machzor from 1584, and an edition from 1604, this extremely scarce edition is known to be both the first Jewish prayer book to bare the name of "Amsterdam" on the title page, and the first to contain any Hebrew lettering at all.* Published "A. Primero de siuan, de 5377" (1st of Sivan 5377/ June 4th 1617). This edition of the Machzor was printed by David Abenatar Melo (Fernão Alvares Melo, 1569 - 1632) for the Bet Jakob synagogue*, part of the then sizable Sephardic Jewish community in Amsterdam. A significant portion of the community would have been ex-Marranos (Jews, who had outwardly converted to Catholicism during the inquisition in Spain, who then immigrated and were able to reestablished their Jewish identity), and thus were unable to read Hebrew, hence the text's publication in Spanish.

Hoefnagel worked on the Civitates his whole life and may have acted as an agent for the project, by commissioning views from other artists. He also completed more than 60 illustrations himself.

SCHENCKEL, Lambert [and Johannes PAEPP].
VD17 14:631160D (2 copies); Yates, Art of memory, p. 301. Very rare third edition of Johannes Paepp's detailed commentary on Schenkel's Ars memoria, first published in 1617 as Schenckelius detectus, seu memoria artificialis hactenus occultata. The Dutch humanist Lambert Schenkel (1547-1625) was a great master of the art of memory and his teachings were so efficient that he was once accused of heresy by the Catholic Church. "Schenkel had a disciple and imitator, one Johannes Paepp. The works on memory of this Paepp are deserving of rather careful attention because he plays a role which may be vulgarly described as letting the cat out of the bag. He, as he describes it, 'detects Schenkel' or reveals the secret of the occult memory hidden in Schenkel's books. This purpose is stated in the title of his first book .... And he continued the good work of 'detecting Schenkel' in two subsequent publications" (Yates).While the present third edition names "Arnoldi Backhusy" on the title-page, he appears to have done nothing except add the dedication to the physician Johannes Meiboom: the main text largely matches the second edition. With a 1659 owner's inscription and a library stamp. A very good copy, with the fore-edge margin of the title-page folded inward and a minor water stain throughout in the lower margin. Binding very good as well.

Described as "Editio II," this is actually an enlarged edition of a work original published in 1597, documenting prize medals made for students of the Altdorf academy in Nuremberg. "The most remarkable example of [emblems and numismatics coming together] is the collection of prize medals from the Altdorf academy .... These medals were not only given to talented pupils as a reward for their study achievements, but also served as an instrument in teaching rhetorical skills. Each year several pupils were selected to deliver an oration interpreting the image depicted on the obverse of the medal. The images of the medals and the texts of the orations were published ... in two books as Emblemata anniversaria (Nuremberg, 1597 and 1617). The illustrations were made by Johannes Sibmacher ..." (Visser, Joannes Sambucus and the Learned Image, p. 45). Provenance: Robert Hoe (morocco bookplate). Tan calf, spine elaborately gilt, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Minor rubbing to binding, fine.
