         1529 Imperatoris Justinian Volumen. Corpus Juris Civilis. Parrhisiorum Chevallon

      Chevallon, Paris 1529 - This is a reading copy, but a wonderful example of early 16th century book arts with typography, decorative borders, woodcuts (colophon and Justinian I) and etc. that all hint heavily at the manuscripts the printed work had only recently replaced. This is one volume from an epic printing of the entire corpus of Justinian's law, executed by Chevallon circa 1529 (this volume 1529). The set is incredibly rare, the last example I found of it selling was in 1904 (in five volumes). The 1904 edition of Book Auction Records states - "We need only note the very great beauty of the old Gothic letterpress, page after page, in its red and black most picturesque in aspect. Every paragraph has its initial in red ; every page its heading, likewise in red type. Constantly we see charming little woodcuts for initials ; and one remarkably handsome woodcut, about 7 by 6, of the Imperial Author of the book in Council ; the borders of the title-page showing wonderful skill with birds, grotesque animals, and " mermen," with remarkably expressive faces. The day of beautiful manuscripts had by no means laded out of memory, and their beauty had to be rivalled, but we still see here that men preferred to retain even the contractions. The fine old work Is for the most part in a magnificent state of preservation, and is one of the finest colossal books ever printed in the world." - 1904 Book Auction Records, Volume 4. Bookseller note - The decorative devices in this work make it wonderfully fun to browse; every time I think I've found the last grotesque hidden in the initials, another delights me. About the Printer (Also from the 1904 Book Auction Records) - "The first commercial printing office in France was opened about the year 1473, at the sign of the "Golden Sun," in James' Street, Paris. To this house the first three printers, who had been brought from Germany, went and set up business when their University patrons were about to leave France. How alone the three pioneers stayed depended, of course, on the demand for the skill of the first craftsmen of their kind; but we find the "Golden Sun," nearly sixty years later, of such great Importance as to be able to turn out under its master— Claude Chevallon — an enormous work of this sort, in a style such as the ordinary compositor of the present day would be incapable of approaching." About the Printer's Mark and Woodcut - In 1520, Chevallon married female printer Charlotte Guillard, two years after the death of her first husband Berthold Rembolt, and they worked together to develop the printer-publisher business. Claude Chevallon's printer's mark had been two horses, and he added the sun to this when their shops merged. The woodcut of Justinian I had been used previously by Guillard and her previous husband, possibly as early as 1499, making it (again, possibly) an incunable woodcut. About the Author - Justinian (482 –565), was the Byzantine (East Roman) emperor from 527 to 565. During his reign, Justinian sought to revive the empire's greatness and reconquer the lost western half of the historical Roman Empire. Justinian's rule constitutes a distinct epoch in the history of the Later Roman empire, and his reign is marked by the ambitious but only partly realized renovatio imperii, or "restoration of the Empire". A still more resonant aspect of his legacy was the uniform rewriting of Roman law, the Corpus Juris Civilis, which is still the basis of civil law in many modern states. His reign also marked a blossoming of Byzantine culture, and his building program yielded such masterpieces as the church of Hagia Sophia. Physical Attributes - Folio. 41.5 x 29 x 3.25 cm.

         De physicis quaestionibus.

      (à la fin:) Argentine (Strasbourg), per Henricum Sybold, s.d. (c.1529). - in-12. 39ff. (1f.blanc). Vélin de l'époque. Première Edition séparée. Originaire de Piacenza et ami de Léonard de Vinci, le savant humaniste Giorgio Valla (1447-1500) avait laissé à sa mort un grand ouvrage inédit qui fut publié par Alde l'année suivante (1501): "De expetendis et fugiendis rebus". Cette vaste encyclopédie couvrait toutes les disciplines avec d'importantes sections sur les sciences, notamment les mathématiques et la médecine. La présente édition reprend le texte du trentième chapitre de cette encyclopédie, clôturant la section consacrée à la médecine et dans lequel étaient énumérées 150 "questions naturelles". "The quaestiones can be divided into two groups: the first dealing with organic and non-organic nature (the sea, rain, plants, animals, etc.), the second with the humain being 'a capite ad calcem' and focusing on medicine, physiology and anatomy (where the human body is compared to that of the animals" (Ventura). Rare impression de Strasbourg. Le titre s'inscrit dans un bel encadrement gravé sur bois. Mouillures. Cf. Iolanda Ventura, "Quaestiones and Encyclopedias" in: "Schooling and Society: The Ordering and Reordering of Knowledge in the Western Middle Ages" (2004), pp.23-43.

Seconda edizione con qualche modifica rispetto alla prima (apparsa a Roma nel 1524) di quest'importante e curiosa opera del Trissino (Vicenza 1478 - Roma 1550) sulla riforma dell'ortografia italiana, con la proposta di adottare alcune nuove lettere mutuandole dall'alfabeto greco. La ''Epistola'' è indirizzata al Papa Clemente VII. Al recto del sesto foglio (aa2) iniziano i ''Dubbi grammaticali'', qui in edizione originale, che costituiscono la parte preponderante dell'opera. Gamba 1704: «A questa ristampa è anteposto un Proemio di T. Janiculo, in cui si scrive che l'Epistola è stata in qualche particella dall'Autore fatta più lucida e chiara; il che è verissimo. I Dubbi grammaticali aggiuntivi furono dall'autore scritti per puntellare le sue nuove opinioni contro le censure del Firenzuola, del Liburnio, del Tolomei, e di Lodov. Martelli. Il Trissino restò vinto da' suoi avversari; ma non totalmente, poiché rimasero almeno nella nostra ortografia adottate le differenze da lui suggerite dell'i e dell'u, vocali, dal j e dal v, consonanti». Opera di notevole fascino e molto rara. Esempl. molto bello, a grandi margini su carta forte. Gamba Test di Lingua, 1704. STC 681. Adams T-951. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Ein Regiment: wie man sich vor der newen Plage, der Englische Schweyss genant bewaren unnd so man damit ergriffen wirdt, darynn halten sol / durch Euricium Cordum / der Artzney Doctorem und Prof. zu Marpurg.

      Nürnberg, bey, Peypus, 1529, 4, 8 nn. Bll. (l.w.), regliert und rubriziert flex. Pergamenteinband. "Rrapidly fatal viral infectious disease appeared in England in 1485, persisted for the summer months and disappeared as winter approached. This pattern of infection re-appeared in 1508, 1517, 1528, and finally 1551. The epidemic never returned. It had no respect for wealth or rank, and predominantly attacked males between the ages of 15 and 45 years. The incubation period was frighteningly short and the outcome normally fatal. The symptoms of acute respiratory disease and copious sweating were characteristic, providing the name 'the English sweating disease'. It was never in the big league of killer epidemics, such as plague and influenza, but its pockets of instant lethality in communities gave it a special ranking of horror. The infective cause of this disease remained a total mystery until it was compared with Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) in 1994." by Bridson, Eric English 'sweate' (Sudor Anglicus) and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, The British Journal of Biomedical Science, 2001Euricus Cordus (1486-1537) was a Professor of Medicine at the University of Marburg and municipal physician in Bremen this book was the first medical book published from the new University in Marburg. He is also known for his 13 volumes of neo-Latin epigrams, which mark him as one of the genre's most significant representatives in the 16th century."Das "Regiment" des Euricius Cordus ist unter den bekannten Marburger Frühdrucken die älteste medizinische Schrift. Zur Veröffentlichung kam es aus aktuellem Anlaß: Im Sommer 1529 griff der "Englische Schweiß", eine bis dahin nur auf England (und selbst in Schottland und Irland nicht aufgetretene) Epidemie, erstmalig auch auf den europäischen Kontinent Uber. Das Hauptsymptom dieser Krankheit bestand in Übelriechenden Schweißausbrüchen, denen Schüttelfrost und rasch ansteigendes Fieber vorausgingen sie führte in vielen Fällen zum Tode, konnte aber andererseits bei richtiger Therapie rasch zum Abklingen gebracht werden. Als sie sich von Norddeutschland aus immer weiter ausbereitete und Ende August 1529 auch Hessen bedrohte, bat der landgräfliche Kammersekretär Johann Raw von Nordeck Euricius Cordus, eine zur landesweiten Verbreitung bestimmte Schrift Über die Seuche, ihre Vorbeugung und Heilung zu verfassen. Drei Tage später hatte dieser das gewünschte Werk beendet, und nach zwei weiteren Tagen lag auch der Druck fertig vor." Euricius wendet sich an Bürgermeister und Rat der Stadt Marburg "sampt allen vntersassen des Furstenthums zu Hessen." Er beschreibt die Krankheit als "eyn schnei ynwendig vergifftig fieber / aus bösem blut des hertzen vnd vberiger verstoreter feuchtung des vmbringenden hertze(n)schreyns aus bösem vnnd vergifftigtem lufft geursacht." Die allgemeine Vergiftung des Körpers greife so rasch um sich, daß es nicht einmal mehr wie bei der Pest zur Beulenbildung komme. Zur Vorbeugung empfiehlt er bestimmte Arzneien, deren Zusammensetzung er im einzelnen angibt. Wer von der Krankheit ergriffen wird, soll sich unverzüglich zu Bett legen und kräftig schwitzen, jedoch nach Möglichkeit ohne die eher schädlichen Feder- oder Pelzdecken. Im Übrigen soll der Kranke "ym ersten anstoß nit zu sehr erschrecken / Denn wilche ein solch regiment gehalte(n) haben / seind meistlich alle auffgestanden." Dem Marburger Erstdruck vom 4. September 1529 folgten aus Rhodes Offizin in wenigen Tagen zwei Neudrucke. Von ihnen ist der eine auf den 10. September 1529 datiert, der andere dagegen nur mit einer Jahreszahl versehen. Beide haben eine an den obengenannten Kammersekretär Raw von Nordeck gerichtete Nachschrift, in der Euricius u.a. einen inzwischen eingetretenen Heilungserfolg mitteilt. Auch außerhalb Marburgs fand die Schrift lebhaftes Interesse. Insgesamt sind fünf Nachdrucke aus Augsburg, Nürnberg (2), Tübingen und Straßburg bekannt, alle aus dem Jahr 1529.Marburg scheint von dem Englischen Schweiß zunächst verschont geblieben zu sein. Als aber Anfang Oktober 1529 das Religionsgespräch stattfand, fiel die Seuche doch noch in der Stadt ein, so daß die Verhandlungen zwischen Luther und Zwingli überstürzt abgebrochen wurden. Euricius Cordus (eigentlich Heinrich Ritze bzw. Ricius, geb. i486 in Simtshausen bei Wetter, gest. 1535 in Bremen) studierte in Erfurt, wo er 1516 die Magisterwurde erhielt. 1517/18 bekleidete er das Rektorat der Erfurter Marienstiftsschule. Anschließend wandte er sich dem Studium der Medecin zu und promovierte 1521 in Ferrara zum Doctor utr. med.

         Libri de re rustica M Catonis M Terentii Varronis M Iunii Moderati Col

      S.l.|[Paris]: Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade], 1529. Fine. Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade], S.l. [Paris] 1529 et 1524 pour les deux textes suivants, in-folio (20,5x31,5cm), A6 A8 a-t8 v6 x8 et Aa6 †4 A-O8 et Aa10, relié. - First Paris edition of Libri re rustica illustrated a title frontispiece representing a printing stage, and various mythological scenes framing. A handwritten annotation time on the title page. Beautiful initials. This edition contains a glossary of Giorgio Merula, comments from the Old Filippo Beroalda the thirteen books of Columella, and the table of Aldus Manutius in day length and size of shadows, following the teachings of Palladius. Third edition in Josse Bade page for Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, after those of 1515 and 1519. It is followed by a special pagination pamphlet entitled De die natali Censorinus. Repeated frontispiece title page. Initials identical to the previous text; representing a broad band of astronomers, and many other vignettes and astronomical diagrams in-text. A very important card Macrobius representative climatic zones. Binding full rigid vellum vintage cream. Back to six nerves. Title to the contemporary pen the book in the first box and label later in the second. Clasps remains. All red sprinkled edges. Some underlining and marginal notes of the time. Some pale foxing and marginal tears without missing. A corner tear without loss of text miiii sheet of the second text. Particularly fresh copy. The Libri re rustica is a meeting of didactic prose on agriculture and rural life, left by the four great ancient agronomists Cato the Elder, Varro, Columella and Palladius; are approached cultivating fields and gardens, beekeeping, fisheries, rural economy (recipes, medicine), as well as planting work. These texts are traditionally printed in collective editions and adopt a scientific tone and non-literary as could be the Virgil in his Georgics. Thus, from 1472 and until the middle of the eighteenth century, these texts will be published periodically and collectively under the umbrella of Europe's largest printers, first in Italy, the cradle of humanism, then in France and Germany. In the second half of the century, it was rather separate editions, it will then wait for the renewed interest in the second half of the eighteenth for agricultural realities and see these works published again. The second part consists of the famous commentary Dream of Scipio by Macrobius, and seven books of his Saturnalia, philosophical banquet taking place in the eponymous period during which twelve debaters hold forth on the history and Roman philosophy and offer explanation of Virgil texts. These Saturnalia are also an opportunity for a debate on food and their properties. De die natali ("From the day of birth") deals with the birth and human life, days, months, years, religious rites, it is an important wealth of information about the uses of Antiquity: calculation of term birth, zodiac, the Pythagorean theory of music and the planets, and the influence on gestational age. It speaks of life divided into climatic periods or years, and its duration limited to eighty or a hundred years. Censorinus also provides many historical chronological markers. Very nice set of texts quite symbolic of the renewed interest of the Renaissance authors for classic ancient texts or minor, and confirms the vision of a perfect and harmonious Rome. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition parisienne du Libri de re rustica illustrée d'un titre-frontispice représentant une scène d'imprimerie, ainsi que diverses scènes mythologiques en encadrement. Une annotation manuscrite du temps sur la page de titre. Belles lettrines. Cette édition contient le glossaire de Giorgio Merula, les commentaires de Filippo Beroalda l'Ancien sur les treize livres de Columelle, ainsi que la table d'Alde Manuce sur la durée du jour et la taille des ombres portées, suivant les enseignements de Palladius. Troisième édition chez Josse Bade pour Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, après celles de 1515 et 1519. Elle est suivie sous pagination particulière d'un opuscule de Censorin intitulé De die natali. Page de titre-frontispice répétée. Lettrines identiques au texte précédent ; un large bandeau représentant des astronomes, ainsi que plusieurs autres vignettes et schémas astronomiques in-texte. Une très importante carte de Macrobe représentant les zones climatiques.   Reliure en plein vélin rigide crème d'époque. Dos à six nerfs. Titre à la plume contemporain de l'ouvrage dans le premier caisson et étiquette plus tardive dans le second. Restes de fermoirs. Toutes tranches mouchetées rouges. Quelques soulignements et annotations marginales de l'époque. Quelques pâles mouillures et déchirures marginales sans manque. Une déchirure en coin sans perte de texte au feuillet miiii du second texte. Exemplaire particulièrement frais. Le Libri de re rustica est une réunion de textes didactiques en prose sur l'agriculture et la vie à la campagne, laissés par les quatre grands agronomes antiques Caton l'Ancien, Varron, Columelle et Palladius ; y sont abordés la culture des champs et des jardins, l'élevage des abeilles, la pêche, l'économie rurale (recettes de cuisine, de médecine), ainsi que les travaux de plantation. Ces textes sont traditionnellement imprimés dans des éditions collectives et adoptent un ton scientifique et non littéraire comme avait pu le faire Virgile dans ses Géorgiques. Ainsi, dès 1472 et jusque vers le milieu du XVIIIème siècle, ces textes seront régulièrement et collectivement édités sous la coupe des plus grands imprimeurs européens, d'abord en Italie, le berceau de l'humanisme, puis en France et en Allemagne. Dans la deuxième moitié du siècle, on fit plutôt des éditions séparées, il faudra ensuite attendre le regain d'intérêt de la seconde moitié du XVIIIème pour les réalités agricoles et voir ces œuvres éditées à nouveau. La seconde partie est constituée du célèbre Commentaire du Songe de Scipion par Macrobe, ainsi que des sept livres de ses Saturnales, banquet philosophique se déroulant à la période éponyme et durant lequel douze devisants dissertent sur l'histoire et la philosophie romaine, puis proposent une explication des textes de Virgile. Ces Saturnales sont aussi l'occasion d'un débat sur les aliments et leurs propriétés. De die natali (« Du jour de naissance ») traite de la naissance et de la vie de l'homme, des jours, les mois, des années, des rites religieux, il s'agit d'une importante mine d'information concernant les usages de l'Antiquité : calcul du terme de la naissance, zodiaque, la théorie de Pythagore sur la musique et les planètes, et l'influence sur la durée de gestation. Il y est question de la vie divisée en périodes ou années climatériques, et de sa durée limitée à quatre-vingts ou à cent ans au plus. Censorinus fournit aussi de nombreux repères chronologiques historiques. Très bel ensemble de textes tout à fait symbolique du regain d'intérêt des auteurs de la Renaissance pour les textes antiques classiques ou mineurs, et qui confirme la vision d'une Rome idéale et harmonieuse.

         L'Amoroso Conuiuio di Dante, con la additione, & molti suoi notandi, accuratamente reuisto & emendato

      Ff. 124. Nicolo di Aristotile detto Zoppino: Vinegia, 1529. - 1529 Convivio by DANTE Alighieri Philosophy Politics Vernacular Encyclopedia A very rare, 16th-century printing of Dante’s Convivio – a vernacular encyclopedia on philosophy, politics, linguistics, science, and history. Dante Alighieri (c. 1265 – 1321), was a major Italian poet of the Late Middle Ages. His Divine Comedy, originally called Comedìa (modern Italian: Commedia) and later christened Divina by Boccaccio, is widely considered the greatest literary work composed in the Italian language and a masterpiece of world literature. Convivio is a work written by Dante Alighieri roughly between 1304 and 1307. This unfinished work of Dante consists of four trattati, or "books": a prefatory one, plus three books that each include a canzone (long lyrical poem) and a prose allegorical interpretation or commentary of the poem that goes off in multiple thematic directions.

         1526 RARE La Sophonisba Trissino Italian Renaissance Tragedy Punic Wars Theatre

      Vicenza : Per Tolomeo Ianiculo, 1529. - 1526 RARE La Sophonisba Trissino Italian Renaissance Tragedy Punic Wars Theatre An early printing of Trissino’s famous tragedy La Sophonisba. Gian Giorgio Trissino (1478 – 1550), also called Giovan Giorgio Trissino, was an Italian Renaissance humanist, poet, dramatist, diplomat, and grammarian. In the history of modern European literature Trissino occupies a prominent place because of his tragedy Sophonisba (c. 1515; published 1524). Based on the life of the Carthaginian lady Sophonisba and inspired by ancient tragedies, it was perhaps the first tragedy in early modern times to show deference to the classic rules. It served as an example for European tragedies throughout the 16th century. Sophonisba (fl. 203 BC) was a Carthaginian noblewoman who lived during the Second Punic War, and the daughter of Hasdrubal Gisco Gisgonis (son of Gisco). In an act that became legendary, Sophonisba poisoned herself rather than be humiliated in a Roman triumph.

Fish's work represented the clegy as "thieves," responsible for the distress of the poor.

It was the first book to come from William Rastell's press in the five years that he was active as a printer. This copy is peculiar in having signatures hi and h4 replaced by two leaves bearing signatures G3 and H2 respectively. The text of these leaves does not follow on that of the preceding leaves. It may be, therefore, that this copy is an earlier issue of the book and that changes were made in the text while printing.

         Liber historiarum partium Orientis, sive Passagium Terrae Sanctae, Haythono, ordinis Praemonstratensis, authore, scriptus anno redemptoris nostri M. CCC.

      Haguenau: per Iohan Sec[erius, 1529. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to. [19.2 x 14.1 cm]. (71) ff., (1) f. integral blank, including woodcut border on title and 1 large historiated initial. Bound in recent speckled boards, blue edges. Minor edge wear to back and boards, bookplate inside upper cover. Minor browning to quire L, a few contemporary annotations. Internally excellent.First Latin edition and an internally excellent copy of this account of Asia and the Middle East, which along with Polo, formed one of the few eyewitness sources for Asia from the Middle Ages: According to Lach, in its French redaction (Fleur des histories d'Orient), it formed an important source for Mandeville's knowledge about the Mongols and the great Khan, and even into the 16th century, it was a general source for Grynaeus & Huttich for Eastern matters. (Lach I.l.78, 179). The work is by the Cilician Armenian prince, statesman and general Hetoun of Korikos (d. 1308), and contains a wealth of information on Mongol and pre-Ottoman history, as well as eyewitness records of military campaigns in the Holy Land and Near East during the 13th century.Hetoun's work was composed in three books: Book I, a geographical survey of fourteen countries in Asia and the Near East; Book II, an account of pre-Ottoman military history in Central Asia; and the much longer Book III, an extremely detailed history of the Mongol Empire, including the rise of Genghis Khan and the Empire's rapid expansion during the 13th century. Book IV proposes a new crusade against the Ottomans, led by an alliance of Armenian and Mongol armies. As the nephew of Hetoun I, King of Cilician Armenia, Hetoun witnessed and often participated in many of the military, political and diplomatic upheavals described in the present work, such as the Arminian/Mongol victory over Egyptians invading Cilicia (c. 1299). He served as a general in Mongol campaigns, journeyed to the Caucusus, and even claims that he witnessed the inauguration of Mongol Khans. The author also gathered much of his information from his father and uncle, both of whom had traveled throughout the Far East in the mid 13th century. Within Book III (Ch. LXVI), Hetoun categorically states that his Mongol history from the accession of the regent Abaqa Khan (r. 1265-1282) to its conclusion is drawn from his own eyewitness experience. Though the author is identified on the title page as a Premonstratensian monk-and though he is often referred to in later sources as "Frère" or "Abbé"-Hetoun evidently entered the Cypriot order only briefly, during a short political exile from the kingdom of Cilician Armenia, where he was a member of the royal family. Shortly afterward, he was sent to Rome, and then to Poitiers, where he composed the present work in 1307 by dictating it to his secretary, Nicolaus Falcon. The popularity of Hetoun's history is attested by the existence of 15 manuscript copies of the original French text of 1307 and over 30 manuscript copies of the Latin, a translation that was undertaken by Falcon that same year. The printed bibliographic record is murky: it is presumed that the present Latin edition postdates an undated French edition printed in Paris and Lyon during the early 16th century. The present edition was printed five more times during the 16th century, and by 1595, the work had also been translated into German, Italian, Spanish and Dutch. * VD 16 H 870. For the historical circumstances surrounding the work, cf. Burger and Bedrosian, A Lytell Cronicle [critical edition of the 1520 English translation by Richard Pynson]; and Burger, "Cicilian Armenian Métissage and Hetoum's La Fleur des Histoires de la Terre d'Orient," in The Postcolonial Middle Ages (ed. Cohen), pp. 67-83.

         Dialogo del Trissino intitulato il Castellano, nel quale si tratta de la Lingua Italiana. (Legato con: ) Epistola del Trissino de le Lettere nuovamente aggiunte ne la Lingua Italiana. (Sege la parte seconda:) Dubbi Grammaticali.

      1529 - 2 opere in 1 volume in-folio piccolo (mm 275x168), magnifica legatura in marocchino rosso alle armi di Eugenio di Savoia, sui piatti triplice filetto e stemma al centro, dorso a 5 nervi, sui compartimenti alternativamente lo stemma e il monogramma del principe. Comprende: I) "Castellano": ff. 20 non num., segnatura A e B8, C4. Impresa di Gianicolo al titolo raffigurante il vello d'oro su un albero custodito da un serpente, con le iniziali ''PT. IA.''' il tutto racchiuso in una bordura a filetti con un motto greco tratto dall'Edipo Re di Sofocle. Edizione originale, assai rara, di opera composta in forma di dialogo ambientato nei giardini di Castel Sant'Angelo tra il castellano fiorentino Giovanni Ruccellai, alter ego del Trissino e Filippo Strozzi. L'opera si inserisce all'interno del dibattito 500esco sulla lingua italiana: il Trissino (illustre letterato e poeta, di Vicenza 1478-1560) sostenne l'importanza degli apporti di vari dialetti, dal napoletano al veneziano, dal siciliani al lombardo, nella formazione di una lingua nazionale; "lo scopo principale. di mostrare che la nostra lingua deè chiamarsi italiana, e non fiorentina o toscana" (Gamba). II) IEpistola. ff. (17 su 18 mancando l'ultimo bianco, segn. A4, aa-bb4, cc5). Impresa tipogr. al titolo, spazi con lettera-guida per le iniziali, testo nel caratteristico stupendo corsivo dello Janiculo. Seconda edizione con qualche modifica rispetto alla prima (apparsa a Roma nel 1524) di quest'importante e curiosa opera del Trissino (Vicenza 1478 - Roma 1550) sulla riforma dell'ortografia italiana, con la proposta di adottare alcune nuove lettere mutuandole dall'alfabeto greco. La ''Epistola'' è indirizzata al Papa Clemente VII. Al recto del sesto foglio (aa2) iniziano i ''Dubbi grammaticali'', qui in edizione originale, che costituiscono la parte preponderante dell'opera. Gamba 1704: "A questa ristampa è anteposto un Proemio di T. Janiculo, in cui si scrive che l'Epistola è stata in qualche particella dall'Autore fatta più lucida e chiara; il che è verissimo. I Dubbi grammaticali aggiuntivi furono dall'autore scritti per puntellare le sue nuove opinioni contro le censure del Firenzuola, del Liburnio, del Tolomei, e di Lodov. Martelli. Il Trissino restò vinto da' suoi avversari; ma non totalmente, poiché rimasero almeno nella nostra ortografia adottate le differenze da lui suggerite dell'i e dell'u, vocali, dal j e dal v, consonanti".

         Champfleury. Auquel est contenu Lart et Science de la deue et vraye Proportion des Lettres Attiques, quon dit autrement Lettres Antiques, et vulgairement Lettres Romaines proportionnées selon le corp et visage humain.. Paris, Geoffroy Tory e Gilles de Gourmont, 28 Aprile 1529

      Gourmont Gilles de, 1529. in-4 (245x172 mm.), ff. (8), 80, legatura 700esca in pergamena. Impresso in caratteri romani e con varie parole in greco, illustrato da 116 straordinarie figure in silografia, inoltre su sei fogli sono illustrate le lettere di 13 diversi alfabeti: ebraico, greco, di fantasia e cifrati. Titolo racchiuso in bordura figurata, che include l'impresa tipografica di Tory. Altra grande marca dello stesso stampatore e colophon al recto dell'ultimo foglio. Edizione originale del notissimo trattato di calligrafia e tipografia, in cui con grande arte e fantasia il Tory illustra in forma assai personale le proprie idee e regole sulla grammatica e l'ortografia del francese a inizio XVI secolo, sull'origine e lo sviluppo del carattere romano e, per terminare, analizza la costruzione dei vari alfabeti. G. Tory, incisore, calligrafo, tipografo francese (Bourges ca. 1480-Parigi ca. 1533), studiò a Roma e a Bologna, quindi insegnò a Parigi letteratura e filosofia curando nel contempo edizioni di opere erudite, tra cui il De re aedificatoria di Leon Battista Alberti (1512) e numerosi Libri d'ore. Con la sua opera di illustratore e di calligrafo promosse in Francia il passaggio dalla scrittura gotica ai caratteri rinascimentali per cui disegnò numerosi alfabeti. Il Champfleury, è uno dei più famosi e rari figurati del rinascimento francese. Esemplare assai puro e bello (tre antiche firme di appartenenza sul titolo). PRIMA EDIZIONE del piu celebre libro illustrato del Rinascimento francese, ideato sulla scorta di Pacioli (1509) e Duerer (1525) per celebrare l'origine e lo sviluppo del carattere Romano, analizzandone la costruzione e il disegno. L'opera edivisa in tre parti: la prima concerne il francese, la seconda l'origine del carattere romano e la terza la costruzione delle lettere dei vari alfabeti. Le incisioni nella seconda sezione dimostrano come i rapporti proporzionali nel disegno delle lettere derivino dalle proporzioni umane, idea che fu di Leonardo e Pacioli, ripresa in ambito francese da Jean Perreal. Nella terza sezione Tory fornisce un accurato e minuzioso manuale pratico per la realizzazione delle singole lettere, sulla scorta di analoghi manuali italiani di calligrafia coevi. Edito sei anni dopo la sua stesura, Tory aveva ottenuto il privilegio di stampa sin dal 1526 come riportato in un suo volume del 1527.

His story should be so rich in detail and able to arouse the reader's interest. But beyond that, we see that his work is to be considered a true advocate of historians and their work: it presents them as "brave and warlike knights to fame struggling constantly against death and make both their prowess that fame gets victory ".

         Von Geschoss, Büchsen, Pulver, Salpeter und Feuerwerck. Wie man solich eygentlich zurichten sol. Was dabei einem Büchsenmeyster und Schützen zuwissen nötig

      1529. Large woodcut on title depicting men loading & charging a cannon (signed "MF"). 24 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern vellum over boards (single small & unimportant wormhole running throughout). Strasbourg: C. Egenolff, 1529. First separate edition of the first monograph on gunpowder and its ingredients and methods of manufacturing them. This is an extremely rare book - as are all of the later 16th-century editions - and this is a very fine and fresh copy.It is still uncertain who actually invented gunpowder, one of the most dramatic and far-reaching technical inventions of all time. All who have examined the text have reached different conclusions regarding its date and authorship: Jähns dated it ca. 1425 and attributed it to Abraham von Memmingen, master-gunner to Duke Friedrich IV of Austria. Thorndike dated it ca. 1422 (see Vol. V, p. 34) and Hassenstein considered it a work of about 1420 and by Conrad von Schöngau. Partington says "it was pieced together from several sources, no doubt of very different dates."-History of Greek Fire and Gunpowder (1960), pp. 152-58. The treatise begins with a series of twelve questions and answers for a master and pupil in which the theory of the explosion of gunpowder is given. Then follows a description of its materials and remarks on ordinary and special gunpowder, particular guns and methods of shooting, and different incendiary compositions. Great importance is given to the correct proportions of gunpowder's ingredients. The work also contains a formula for blessing a gun. The anonymous author discusses the heavy demand for saltpetre as an ingredient of gunpowder. He describes how it can be produced on new walls in damp places or in stables or from latrines which have not been used for a long time, and teaches how to purify saltpetre, a process still used in Lavoisier's days. Finally he describes the manufacture of granulated or "corned" power which was used for handguns and other small arms until the end of the 18th century. The text was first printed early in 1529 at Augsburg as part of the first German language edition of Flavius Vegetius, Vier Bücher der Ritterschaft, and was separately reprinted later in the same year - the present edition - by Christian Egenolff at Strasbourg. Altogether, Egenolff and his heirs issued eight editions of the treatise: in 1529, 1531, 1534, 1550, 1559, 1569, 1582, and 1597. A fine copy with many lower edges uncut, from the library of Denis Duveen. Calligraphic initial at head of title a little cropped. This is the sort of book which would have been read to death by gunners, fireworks manufacturers, and makers of saltpetre and gunpowder. OCLC locates only one copy in America, at Yale, and that copy lacks the splendid title-page. ❧ Hassenstein, Das Feuerwerkbuch, (1941), p. 600.

      Lyon, (Etienne Gueynard (?), 1529. ____ Ouvrage de la plus grande rareté. Cette édition, imprimée à "L'isle galique dicte Lyonnoise" a été publié la même année qu'une édition parisienne. Allut, le bibliographe de Champier, affirme (p. 235) que "toutes les éditions anciennes sont introuvables. Je n'ai jamais vu celle de Paris 1529 et je ne connais que trois ou quatre exemplaires de celles de Lyon 1529, 1579 et 1648." A la suite, du même : - Cy comence ung petit livre du royaume des Allobroges dit long temps apres Bourgogne ou Vienois. Avec l'antiquité & origine de la tres noble & ancienne cité metropolitaine & primace des Allobroges, Vienne sus le fleuve du Rosne. (20) ff. "Opuscule d'une excessive rareté", nous dit Allut. "Ces deux petits livres appartiennent au même volume et tout exemplaire où ils ne sont pas réunis doit être considéré comme imparfait. La cupidité de certains libraires, a profité de ce que ces pièces sont sans pagination et ont chacune leur signature, pour les dépecer et en faire deux plaquettes qui se vendent séparément à des prix exorbitants." Selon une note ancienne au crayon que porte une page de garde : "L'ex. de la vente Coulon (1845) n° 743 avait été adjugé 285 F., prix énorme, presque trois fois le prix de la Chronique de Nuremberg de la même vente." Relié à la suite, probablement du même : - Les nouvelles venues à Lyon de la réception de nos seigneurs les Dauphins & duc d'Orléans en France. (4) ff. Ecrit à l'occasion de la délivrance des enfants de France, retenus en otages à Madrid. Cet opuscule d'une très grande rareté, à été imprimé avec les mêmes caractères que les ouvrages précédents. Allut estime "vraisemblable" que Champier en soit l'auteur. La première ligne du dernier feuillet de cet opuscule a été rognée par le relieur. Le médecin lyonnais Symphorien Champier (1471-1538) jouissait de son vivant d'une renommée considérable. "Homme extraordinaire, tout à la fois poète, soldat, magistrat, médecin du Duc de Lorraine, théologien, historien, botaniste, véritable image de ce temps de la Renaissance qui produisit des génies si complets et si divers." (Hahn et Dumaitre) Brunet 1, 1775. *****. In-8. [160 x 111 mm] Collation : 32 ff. Maroquin brun, dos à nerfs, tranches dorées, étui. (Reliure de la fin du XIXe-début XXe.).

Iunii Moderati Columelle, Palladii Rutilii : quorum summam pagina sequens indicabit [avec] Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, in Somnium Scipionis M. Tulii Ciceronis Libri duo, Et Saturnaliorum Lib. VII. Cum scholiis & indicibus Ascensianis [avec] De die Natali. Censorini opusculum, de die natali, ad Q. Cerellium

      Venundantur Iodoco Badio Ascensio [Josse Bade]. First Paris edition of Libri re rustica illustrated a title frontispiece representing a printing stage, and various mythological scenes framing. A handwritten annotation time on the title page. Beautiful initials. This edition contains a glossary of Giorgio Merula, comments from the Old Filippo Beroalda the thirteen books of Columella, and the table of Aldus Manutius in day length and size of shadows, following the teachings of Palladius.Third edition in Josse Bade page for Macrobii Aurelii Theodosii Viri consularis, after those of 1515 and 1519. It is followed by a special pagination pamphlet entitled De die natali Censorinus. Repeated frontispiece title page. Initials identical to the previous text; representing a broad band of astronomers, and many other vignettes and astronomical diagrams in-text. A very important card Macrobius representative climatic zones.Binding full rigid vellum vintage cream. Back to six nerves. Title to the contemporary pen the book in the first box and label later in the second. Clasps remains. All red sprinkled edges. Some underlining and marginal notes of the time. Some pale foxing and marginal tears without missing. A corner tear without loss of text miiii sheet of the second text. Particularly fresh copy.The Libri re rustica is a meeting of didactic prose on agriculture and rural life, left by the four great ancient agronomists Cato the Elder, Varro, Columella and Palladius; are approached cultivating fields and gardens, beekeeping, fisheries, rural economy (recipes, medicine), as well as planting work. These texts are traditionally printed in collective editions and adopt a scientific tone and non-literary as could be the Virgil in his Georgics. Thus, from 1472 and until the middle of the eighteenth century, these texts will be published periodically and collectively under the umbrella of Europe's largest printers, first in Italy, the cradle of humanism, then in France and Germany. In the second half of the century, it was rather separate editions, it will then wait for the renewed interest in the second half of the eighteenth for agricultural realities and see these works published again.The second part consists of the famous commentary Dream of Scipio by Macrobius, and seven books of his Saturnalia, philosophical banquet taking place in the eponymous period during which twelve debaters hold forth on the history and Roman philosophy and offer explanation of Virgil texts. These Saturnalia are also an opportunity for a debate on food and their properties.De die natali ("From the day of birth") deals with the birth and human life, days, months, years, religious rites, it is an important wealth of information about the uses of Antiquity: calculation of term birth, zodiac, the Pythagorean theory of music and the planets, and the influence on gestational age. It speaks of life divided into climatic periods or years, and its duration limited to eighty or a hundred years. Censorinus also provides many historical chronological markers.Very nice set of texts quite symbolic of the renewed interest of the Renaissance authors for classic ancient texts or minor, and confirms the vision of a perfect and harmonious Rome.

Originaire de Piacenza et ami de Léonard de Vinci, le savant humaniste Giorgio Valla (1447-1500) avait laissé à sa mort un grand ouvrage inédit qui fut publié par Alde l'année suivante (1501): "De expetendis et fugiendis rebus".

"The quaestiones can be divided into two groups: the first dealing with organic and non-organic nature (the sea, rain, plants, animals, etc.), the second with the humain being 'a capite ad calcem' and focusing on medicine, physiology and anatomy (where the human body is compared to that of the animals" (Ventura).

" Luisa di Savoia, al quale l'opera è dedicata, è stato particolarmente duchessa di regione Angiò in cui l'autore propone una vasta cronaca, dal diluvio al regno - che è contemporanea - Francesco I. Jehan Bourdigné (v.1480-1547) fu uomo di Chiesa e officiata in varie parrocchie angioina. Nel suo prologo, egli spiega la sua decisione di scrivere negli annali e le cronache non è innocente: significa che gli permette secondo "avere esperienza di casi toccata al tempo trascorso come se fossimo stati presenti quando avevano il loro effetto ". La sua storia dovrebbe essere così ricco di dettagli e in grado di suscitare l'interesse del lettore. Ma oltre a questo, si vede che il suo lavoro è da considerarsi un vero e proprio sostenitore di storici e del loro lavoro: li presenta come "coraggiosi cavalieri e guerrieri a fama che lottano costantemente contro la morte e facciamo sia la loro abilità che la fama ottiene la vittoria ". Nel momento in cui la storia è parte di belle lettere e non è riconosciuta come disciplina autonoma, è da notare che Bourdigné prendere in difesa, - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Rarissime édition originale comportant une gravure pleine page au verso du feuillet aiiii montrant une scène où l'auteur, agenouillé, offre son ouvrage à Louise de Savoie, mère de François Ier, en présence d'une importante assemblée. Page de titre en rouge et noir, texte entièrement réglé établi sur 49 lignes. Reliure en demi-basane brune, dos à six nerfs sertis de filets dorés, caissons soulignés de filets estampés à froid, roulette dorée et double filet doré en queue, plats de papier brun à la colle, toutes tranches mouchetées de rouge. Très petit trou de vers sur les derniers cahiers affectant sans gravité le texte par endroits, mouillure dans l'angle supérieur droit sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage, petites taches jaunes n'affectant pas le texte au verso du feuillet vii. Ex-libris manuscrit à l'encre dans la partie inférieure de la page de titre, indiquant « du couvent des ff. Minimes de Paris ». Quelques annotations manuscrites de l'époque, ainsi que plusieurs manicules marginales. Première histoire recensée du duché d'Anjou, cet ouvrage est placé sous le patronage de Louise de Savoie qui en fut la duchesse. Le frontispice, essentiellement centré sur des figures féminines, les montre comme de véritables icônes, des allégories du savoir et de la sagesse. Aux côtés de Louise de Savoie, deux autres femmes dominent la foule : Judith à gauche et Esther à droite. Ensemble, elles forment une nouvelle trinité unie sous la devise du Livre des Proverbes, « La femme sage édifie une maison ». En surnommant en outre Louise de Savoie « Pallas », du nom de la déesse grecque de la connaissance, Jehan de Bourdigné inaugure une histoire d'Anjou construite selon deux axes : l'importance du travail des historiens et la place de cet ouvrage dans une historiographie oscillant entre matière médiévale et matière renaissante. Bourdigné s'érige ainsi en véritable défenseur des historiens et de leur travail et les présente comme « les vaillants et belliqueux chevaliers qui pour renommée bataillent continuellement contre la mort et font tant par leur prouesse que renommée obtient victoire ». À une époque où l'histoire fait partie des Belles-lettres et n'est pas véritablement reconnue comme une discipline indépendante, il est remarquable que les historiens soient ainsi considérés. La somme de Bourdigné est ainsi riche en détails et apte à éveiller l'intérêt du lecteur. Il est donc notable de constater qu'il emprunte à la manière historienne du Moyen-Âge en proposant un récit sous forme de chroniques : riche en détails romanesques, à la précision historique parfois délaissée mais faisant néanmoins preuve d'une véritable érudition. En effet, il explique dans le prologue que sa décision d'écrire des annales et des chroniques n'est pas anodine, ce biais permettant selon lui d'« avoir expérience des cas advenus au temps passé comme si nous avions été présent quand ils avaient produit leur effet ». Ce livre joue ainsi un rôle charnière dans l'historiographie angevine et plus largement gallicane en liant deux manières historiennes : celle médiévale représentée par les chroniques et celle qui naît à la Renaissance, issue d'une logique humaniste prônant un récit plus linéaire et moins enclin à la subjectivité. Somme sur l'histoire angevine mais aussi, plus généralement, sur l'histoire gallicane, cet ouvrage est célébré par Bertoldi dans ses Angevins célèbres pour ses "maints précieux détails" dont Bourdigné se fait le "témoin oculaire". Très rare édition originale de la toute première histoire du duché d'Anjou.

Four names of former owners on the title have been made illegible with ink by one M. A. Doullay. Very small & civilized annotations on the first 14 leaves in old ink) (Note: The Roman civilian administrator Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus, 61-112 A.D, published 10 books of literary letters, consisting of short essays, character sketches and sensible observations. The letters paint the high society of the young Roman empire. The ninth book contains Pliny's correspondence with the emperor Trajan. Pliny is famous for his description of the eruption of the Vesuvius on the 24th of August in 79 A.D. He was a nephew of the encyclopaedist Pliny the Elder, who died, observing the eruption from afar, overcome by poisonous fumes. Pliny the Younger held under Trajanus a number of magistracies. In 111 or 112 he became governor of Bithynia. From here he was in constant correspondence with the Emperor. His letters, which were conceived of as artistic productions, are more or less epistolary essays. In the late antiquity and later in the Renaissance the literary letter had a widespread influence. § The second work in this convolute (Liber) 'De viris Illustribus in re militari & in administranda republica', was long time ascribed to Plinius Minor, or Aurelius Victor. This work enjoyed a great popularity among humanists and on schools. Nowadays its name is (edition of Pilchmayr): 'Incerti Auctoris liber de Viris Illustribus Urbis Romae'. It contains more than 75 biographies of famous Romans from Romulus to Pompeius and Sulla. When it was written no one knows, some say first or second century A.D., others the fourth. § The third work is a collection of short biographical sketches of C. Suetonius Tranquillus, ca. 70-140 A.D., one of the most learned men of his age, and a friend of Pliny. It contains 'vitae' of twenty Roman grammarians and sixteen rhetoricians. § The last work is the 'Liber Prodigiorum' or 'De prodigiis' (Book of Prodigies) by the late antique author Julius Obsequens (4th century). It draws on Livy and is a concise account of the wonders and portents that occurred in Rome in Republican times. § This collection of texts is a reissue, with more or less the same title, of the Aldus editions of Pliny of 1508, and with corrections of a few typographical errors of 1518. It was produced by the French scholar/printer Robert Estienne, or Robertus Stephanus, 1503- 1559, who started his career as a publisher in 1527. He produced during his career 8 'editiones principes', a famous 'Thesaurus Linguae Latinae' and an important folio edition of the New Testament. His books were printed in beautiful type. This Plinius of 1529 is a very early example of his activity and his type) (Provenance: On the title only one legible name: 'Ex lib. A. Doullay'. On the front fly leaf in pencil: 'G. Kinard, Donné par M. Jean Monier, Tagne 1910'. (Or Taque)) (Collation: *8, 2*4 (leaf 2*3 verso and 2*4 blank); a-z8, A-E8 (leaf E8 verso blank); A-G8, H6 (leaf H4 verso blank, H5 & H6 blank)) (Photographs on request)

         Practica...gemacht auff Europen, anzufahen in dem nechstkunfftigen Dreyssigsten Jar, Biss auff das Vier und Dreyssigst nachuolgend

      Large woodcut on title. 8 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern black morocco in the Jansenist style by Laurenchet. [Nuremberg: F. Peypus, 1529]. A variant printing of the first edition of Paracelsus' second printed work; all books by this author printed during his lifetime are of the greatest rarity. The printing recorded by Sudhoff -- with the same place and printer -- contains six printed leaves; our copy has eight leaves. In Sudhoff 2, the Practica ends on A4v and the "An die Astronomos" occupies B1r-B2r; in our copy the Practica ends on the top of B2v with the "An die Astronomos" occupying the rest of B2r-B4r. The copy in the Wellcome Library is identical to our example. In this slender work, Paracelsus demonstrates his skill in astrological forecasts. It was a very successful book with at least five printings in 1529 and 1530 (including Nuremberg, Augsburg, and Strasbourg). See Sudhoff for a lengthy description of the woodcut on the title-page. Very good copy. Final leaf with a repaired hole affecting about three words. Sudhoff 2­(variant not known to him). Zinner 1387­(issue not determined). This variant unknown to VD16.

         Von Geschoss, Büchsen, Pulver, Salpeter und Feuerwerck. Wie man solich eygentlich zurichten sol. Was dabei einem Büchsenmeyster und Schützen zuwissen nötig

      Large woodcut on title depicting men loading & charging a cannon (signed "MF"). 24 unnumbered leaves. Small 4to, modern vellum over boards (single small & unimportant wormhole running throughout). Strasbourg: C. Egenolff, 1529. First separate edition of the first monograph on gunpowder and its ingredients and methods of manufacturing them. This is an extremely rare book - as are all of the later 16th-century editions - and this is a very fine and fresh copy. It is still uncertain who actually invented gunpowder, one of the most dramatic and far-reaching technical inventions of all time. All who have examined the text have reached different conclusions regarding its date and authorship: Jähns dated it ca. 1425 and attributed it to Abraham von Memmingen, master-gunner to Duke Friedrich IV of Austria. Thorndike dated it ca. 1422 (see Vol. V, p. 34) and Hassenstein considered it a work of about 1420 and by Conrad von Schöngau. Partington says "it was pieced together from several sources, no doubt of very different dates."-History of Greek Fire and Gunpowder (1960), pp. 152-58. The treatise begins with a series of twelve questions and answers for a master and pupil in which the theory of the explosion of gunpowder is given. Then follows a description of its materials and remarks on ordinary and special gunpowder, particular guns and methods of shooting, and different incendiary compositions. Great importance is given to the correct proportions of gunpowder's ingredients. The work also contains a formula for blessing a gun. The anonymous author discusses the heavy demand for saltpetre as an ingredient of gunpowder. He describes how it can be produced on new walls in damp places or in stables or from latrines which have not been used for a long time, and teaches how to purify saltpetre, a process still used in Lavoisier's days. Finally he describes the manufacture of granulated or "corned" power which was used for handguns and other small arms until the end of the 18th century. The text was first printed early in 1529 at Augsburg as part of the first German language edition of Flavius Vegetius, Vier Bücher der Ritterschaft, and was separately reprinted later in the same year - the present edition - by Christian Egenolff at Strasbourg. Altogether, Egenolff and his heirs issued eight editions of the treatise: in 1529, 1531, 1534, 1550, 1559, 1569, 1582, and 1597. A fine copy with many lower edges uncut, from the library of Denis Duveen. Calligraphic initial at head of title a little cropped. This is the sort of book which would have been read to death by gunners, fireworks manufacturers, and makers of saltpetre and gunpowder. OCLC locates only one copy in America, at Yale, and that copy lacks the splendid title-page. ? Hassenstein, Das Feuerwerkbuch, (1941), p. 600. Jähns, Geschichte der Kriegswissenschaften, I, pp. 392-400 & 591.
