      [colophon: Augspurg: Hainrichen Stayner], 1532. 4to (19.5 cm; 7.75"). [4], 26 ff. Only edition of an important early and practical military manual that Lienhart Fronsperger felt merited inclusion in his Kriegssbuch (Franckfurt am Mayn, 1573). The threat to Germany from the aggressive advance of the Turkish empire was the precipitating cause for Busteter to compose his German-language treatise on the practical aspects of warfare: mustering, payments, siege, attack, defense, treason, logistics, diplomacy, and so on. The work is addressed to the authorities of Augsburg.    The text is in fraktur and the title-page is illustrated with => a large woodcut of four foot soldiers and a drummer in a forest.    Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel (“AHA”) at rear.    Searches of WoldCat, NUC, and COPAC locate only one copy in the U.S. (Newberry Library) and one in Britain (British Library).         VD16 B9990; Index Aurel. 128.290; Hohenemser 1423. Modern boards with vellum (or vellum-like) covering. Partially uncut copy. Light staining or smudging in some margins; a few marginal jottings in old ink. => A rather nice copy.

         Opus de re medica, nunc primum integratum latinitate donatum, per Joannem Guinterium Andernacum

      Paris, Simon de Colines 1532 - Paris, Simon de Colines, 1532. In-folio de (40), 47, (9), 39, (9), 127, (9), 48, (8), 24, (8), 83, (9), 158 et (2) pages ; peau retournée de la fin du XVIe siècle. Première édition complète latine des Œuvres de Paul d'Egine. L'exemplaire d'un des premiers lecteurs royaux de médecine et chirurgie. Exemplaire portant au titre l'ex-libris manuscrit "Debauvais" que l'on peut très certainement attribuer à André de Beauvais qui fut lecteur royal, nommé le 27 février 1556, et à qui on avait confié le rôle d'enseigner aux chirurgiens-barbiers, donc en français (voir Mirko Grmek, "Les premiers lecteurs royaux de mathématiques", Histoire du collège de France La création 1530-1560, 2006, p. 436-437). De Beauvais annote copieusement le texte de Paul d'Egine, en particulier les Livres II, III et IV. Ses très nombreuses notes sont principalement de trois ordres : -de nombreuses références à des textes de Galien et de Celse mais aussi à un contemporain comme Giorgio Valla, voir le livre II, page 25 dans un développement sur le « charbon » : « Ulcera prava carbunculos referent [?] omnia quae molesta in peste sunt ut [?] corpore ita in facie et faci[?]. hec Georgius Valla » (Les ulcères malins apportent des plaies noires d’anthrax [?], tout ce qui est mauvais dans la peste comme [?], le corps ainsi qu’au visage et [?]. Cf. Giorgio Valla). -De Beauvais donne aussi des équivalences en langue vulgaire ou fait référence à l'étymologie de certains mots ; -Enfin, lors de notes plus longues et plus développées, il annote le texte de remarques médicales pratiques et concrètes : livre II, page 1: Signa facies/ nares acute propter in ob[turationem?] et caloris destitutionem (Les signes sur le visage : les narines irritées à cause de leur obturation et de la baisse de la température) ; livre III, page 45: polipi medicamenta requirent ast[ ] resolventia evacuantia et digere[ntia] (les soins du polype demandent des ast(ringents?) dissolvants, évaucants et digérants) ; livre III page 49 : [sur l’insensibilité dentaire]. omnia immodica astringentia et austera stuporem faciunt propter therream sustantiam (Toutes les substances trop abondantes, astringentes et austères rendent les dents insensibles à cause de la substance (?) ; livre III page 89 : in morbis melancolicis non est ser(vandum?) venam salvatelam vena hert( ) (dans les maladies mélancoliques il ne faut pas garder le sang saigner la vène salvatèle). NB : Egine dit qu’il faut faire saigner l’extrémité de la main. Galien précise que c’est la gauche (note interlinéaire) ; ou encore livre IV page page 6 : [P]ruritus est eruptio humoris [calo]ris in cutem. Pruritus est desiderium scalpendi et fricandi (Le prurit est une éruption de l’humeur chaude sur la peau. Le prurit est une envie de se gratter et de se frotter). Malgré une reliure avec des manques, bel exemplaire, grand de marges, propre et en condition d'origine. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Enchiridion psalmorum, quos sanctae memoriae clarissimus vir Hulderichus Zvinglius ex Ebraica veritate latinitati donavit, & mira claritate illustravit (.).

      - Tiguri, apud Christophorum Froschouer [Zurich, Christoph Froschauer], 1532 Fort volume in-16 (110 x 71 mm), peau de truie sur ais de bois biseautés, dos gothique à 3 nerfs, plats entièrement ornés d'un large décor d'encadrement de filets et motifs végétaux estampés à froid, fermoirs de bronze doré (reliure germanique de l'époque), 226 [i.e. 206] f., (1) f. bl. [sign. a-z, aa-cc8]. Edition originale très rare, comme toutes les éditions des écrits du réformateur alémanique. Cette traduction des psaumes d’Ulrich Zwingli a été publiée à titre posthume et préfacée par son ami et proche collaborateur l’humaniste, philologue et hébraïsant Léo Jud (1482-1542). Fondateur de la liturgie zurichoise, celui-ci eut une influence déterminante dans la diffusion de Zwingli. Ulrich Zwingli (1484-1531) est l’introducteur et le principal artisan de la Réforme en Suisse, qu’il initia à partir du soutien de la ville de Zurich, pour la propager à travers la Confédération. Il trouva une mort prématurée au combat lors de la seconde bataille de Kappel qui opposa Zurichois et cantons catholiques. Il traduisit ce psautier directement de l’hébreu, afin de rester au plus près du sens originel, mais également pour offrir une version plus conforme à l’esprit de la Réforme. L’imprimeur du livre, Christoph Froschauer (1490-1564), a été l’un des premiers à exercer à Zurich. Très entreprenant, il joua également un rôle central dans la diffusion de la pensée zwinglienne. Il a notamment été l’imprimeur de la célèbre "Bible de Zurich" (ou "Bible de Froschauer"). Le texte est imprimé à l’aide d’un grand nombre de polices de caractères, des caractéristiques de corps, graisse et italique très variées, dont des notes en caractères hébraïques. Quelques petites taches d’encre éparses. Quelques annotations d’époque en marge p. 66-68. Ex-libris anciens biffés sur le contreplat et le titre. (Bibles imprimées du XVe au XVIIIe siècle conservées à Paris, n°3290. VD 16 B 3151, Vischer, C-204. I. Zinguer, 'L'hébreu au temps de la Renaissance', p. 40). Bel exemplaire, remarquablement conservé dans sa première reliure estampée, avec ses fermoirs en bronze doré préservés. [Attributes: First Edition]

THE FAIRFAX MURRAY COPY OF THE SECOND EDITION, printed by the same printer and using the same cuts as the 1530 first edition.

         Herbarum vivae eicones ad naturae imitationem -Novi Herbarii tomus II -De vera herbarum cognitione appendix

      Strasbourg: Johann Schott, 1532. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Two volumes bound in one (the appendix added to vol.II), folio (287 x 188 mm). Vol. I: Title within woodcut allegorical border, 4- and 5-part borders to several pages, woodcut arms of Strasbourg, ornamental and historiated initials, head- and tailpieces, 86 woodcuts of plants by Hans Weiditz; vol. II: Title within woodcut allegorical border, 4- part border on 2 pages, 49 woodcut illustrations by Weiditz, ALL COLORED IN A CONTEMPORARY HAND. 18th-century mottled calf gilt, edges gilt. Rebacked preserving original gilt spine panels, repairs to corners, some slight drying; A4 in volume I bound after b4, lacking blanks b4 and G6 in the first volume and H4 and S6 in the second, small stain in lower margin of first title and first text leaf, some leaves lightly browned, occasional minor staining. Provenance: Johannes Beusler (early ownership inscription on title); Jean Charles Patin (inscription dated 1817 on front flyleaf noting that he is a native of Manneville and currently farming in Bézu-la-Forêt); purchased from William Schatzki, 1971. FINELY COLORED COPY of the second edition of volume I (the first was 1530) and FIRST EDITION OF VOLUME TWO OF THE FIRST BOTANICAL BOOK TO CONTAIN REALISTIC AND ACCURATE ILLUSTRATIONS. Referred to as "the first great mind in modern botany" (Hunt), Brunfels' most revolutionary contribution was his choice of artist accurately to portray these "living portraits of plants." The magnificent woodcuts executed by Weiditz were taken from watercolors drawn directly from nature and delineate botanical details well beyond their known function in the taxonomic literature of the time. The first volume was reprinted to be sold with the second, and this is how many sets are constituted. The appendix at the end of the second volume contains the first published writings of both Jerome Bock and Leonhardt Fuchs. After Brunfels's death, a third volume was published (1536-39) and was illustrated after different artists.

First Edition in Book Form of this "chronicle of chronicles" relating the history of the world from Genesis to the time of publication, in the manner of Schedel’s Nuremberg Chronicle but focusing on France, England and the Brabant (a region now part of modern-day Belgium and Holland). The Cronica cronicarum was famously first published in 1521 on 32 leaves that could be assembled either as a scroll (measuring 11 meters long) or in codex form; this edition is also famous for containing the first reality-based printed image of the city of Paris, as opposed to the imaginary views of the city contained in the Nuremberg Chronicle. This important woodcut is reprinted in the 1532 edition, together with nearly 100 additional woodcuts including city views of London, Rome, Trier and Troy; portraits of Henry VIII, François I, Emperor Charles V and other rulers both secular and ecclesiastical; personages and scenes from the Bible; coats of arms; and numerous "roundels" containing genealogical information. The 1532 edition is updated with information about historical events that occurred between 1521 and 1532. Adams C-1495. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Orationum. Volumen tertium.

      Parisis apud Simonem Colinaeum* An. MDXXXII. Mense octobri., 1532. Reliure plein veau marbré (postérieure), dos à cinq nerfs, titre doré sur p. de t., filets et fers dorés, tranches rouges, coupes filetées. Coins et coupes usés, coiffes manquantes.. 10.5/15.5 cm., 4 ff., 276 pp.. Très belle typographie d'une composition et d'une précision stupéfiantes. Jolies lettrines gravées. Dernière page remontée sur onglet. Un carré de papier à été découpé au centre de la page de titre, sans doute pour faire disparaître une marque de propriété manuscrite dont on distingue les contours… * Simon de Colines Devise : Hanc aciem sola retundit virtus. - Virescit vulnere virtus Imprimeur-libraire, libraire juré de l'université de Paris (1522), graveur et fondeur de caractères. - Né entre 1470 et 1480, peut-être en Champagne. Succède à l'imprimeur-libraire Henri Estienne dont il épouse la veuve. De 1522 à 1526, fait travailler avec lui son beau-fils Robert I Estienne. Décédé avant juin 1546. Entre 1520 et 1531, Simon de Colines grave une vingtaine de polices de lettres romaines et italiques directement inspirées par les caractères d’Alde Manuce. Il est le chef de file de la première génération de graveurs de lettres parisiens, c’est probablement lui qui forme la génération suivante, celle d’Augereau et de Garamont. Dans le courant des années 1520, les polices gravées par Simon de Colines commencent ainsi à remplacer ainsi les fontes d’ancien style que les imprimeurs parisiens continuaient à employer.

Through his friendship with these explorers, as well as from his official position as a member of the Council for the Indies in Spain, he was able to obtain authentic original documents and much valuable information about the discoveries made by the early navigators. His works were held in the highest esteem by his contemporaries and are indispensable as a primary source for the history of the Americas" - Hill. This edition consists of a slightly abridged translation of Peter Martyr's first three Decades (from DE ORBE NOVO, first published in 1516 in Alcala de Henares), and three "narrations," the first being a translation of the first edition (Basel 1521) of Martyr's fourth Decade; the second and third are abridged translations of the Second and Third Letters of Cortes, first published in 1524 at Nuremberg. Cortés' famed Second Letter, dated Oct. 30, 1520, provides a vivid account of the conquest of Mexico, describing the people he encountered and fought en route to the Aztec capital. He relates his conflict with his rival Velazquez and gives a wonderful description of the buildings, institutions, and court at Tenochtitlan. It is here that Cortés provides a definitive name for the country, calling it "New Spain of the Ocean Sea." This letter is also important for making reference to Cortés' "lost" first letter, supposedly composed at Vera Cruz on July 10, 1520. Whether that letter was actually lost or suppressed by the Council of the Indies is unknown, but there is little doubt it once existed. The text is the first major announcement to the world of the discovery of major civilizations in the New World, and as such is a work of surpassing importance. Martyr's work also touches on Cuba and the West Indies. In addition to numerous Spanish notations in an early hand, this copy bears the bookplates of Theodore Bauffremont-Courtenay, Prince Duke of Bauffremont (1793- 1852), Cavalry Colonel, supporter of the Duchesse de Barry and aide to the Duke de Bordeaux; and Prince Constantin Radziwill (1850-1920), founder of Monte Carlo and father of Leon Radziwill, Proust's friend and model for the character Robert de Saint-Loup. A rare work, seldom met with in commerce. Only two copies have appeared at auction in the last sixty years. The DuPont copy realized $48,400 in 1991. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 532/1. CHURCH 64.

         Amorini con insegna

      1532 - Bulino, 1532 circa, monogrammato in lastra con la lettera B nel dado; a sinistra, RAPHA. VR.IN. e a destra ANT: LAFREII.FORMIS. Secondo stato di quattro o cinque, con l’indirizzo di Lafrery aggiunto. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. La scena raffigura tre putti, di cui quello al centro, con lo scettro regale sul capo, ha nella sinistra una chiave, e nella destra uno scettro. L’incisione è la prima di una serie di quattro matrici, incise intorno al 1532 e basate sugli arazzi, su invenzione di Raffaello, tessuti in Francia su richiesta di Leone X (1475 – 1521), la cui insegna è ben visibile proprio in questa incisione, nel cerchio luminoso con il leone, e destinati allo zoccolo della Sala di Costantino. Gli arazzi sono attribuiti dal Vasari a Giovanni da Udine. Le matrici subirono molti ritocchi nelle edizioni successive curate da Orlandi e De Rossi, e nel 1823 furono censurate per volere di Leone XII (1760 – 1829). Bella impressione, ricca di toni e ben contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, completa oltre la linea del margine, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare della collezione William Sharp (Lugt 2650) Engraving, 1532 circa, signed on plate with monogram B in the die, at right. Lettered along bottom 'Rapha ur in / Ant Lafrerii formis. Second state, of four or five, with the Antonio Lafreri's publisher's address added. The scene shows three putti standing in front of a large garland, the two at right and left hold bowls with coins and the one in the middle a sceptre in his right hand and keys in his left, a lion of pope Leo X in circle occurs above. The plate is the first of a series of four, based on the tapestries, in turn based on Raphael’s drawings, woven in France for pope Leo X (1475-1521). Vasari attribues the tapestries to Giovanni da Udine. The plates were very retouched in the subsequent editions published by Orlandi and De Rossi, and in 1823 were censored at the behest of Pope Leo XII (1760-1829). Beautiful impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, complete beyond the margin line, in excellent condition. Ex collection William Sharp (Lugt 2650) Raphael Invenit, p. 137, no.

Peinlich bezieht sich hierbei auf das lateinische poena für Strafe und bezeichnet Leibes- und Lebensstrafen. Auf sie stützte sich die Methode der so genannten peinlichen Befragung (Folter) bei der Erwirkung von Geständnissen. Die Einführung der Carolina schuf die Voraussetzung für die massenhafte Durchführung von Hexenprozessen zwischen 1580 und 1680 in Deutschland.

Two works in one volume. 8vo (152 x 95 mm). Contemporary blind-stamped polished calf, spine with 5 raised bands (expertly resored, ties lacking). Internally quite fresh and only very little browned, light dampstain to lower blank margin of some leaves. The woodcuts in first work with roman numbering in ink, a few short annotations elswere. Provenance: Etienne Tarnier, presentation copy to François Herrgott*, Jean Blondelet library. A fine, well margined copy. ----I. VD16 R2861; cf. Heirs of Hippocrates 200 (1551 edition). First edition in Latin of Der swangern Frauwen und hebammen Rosegarten (first published in 1513). This extremely popular book on midwifery, which treats obstetrics as a separate subject in its own right, survived 40 editions. Eucharius Roesslin's son, also called Eucharius and also the town physician of Frankfurt, was responsible for this Latin translation. His father was responsibility for the midwives, therefore he wrote in the vernacular as midwives were unlikely to be conversant with Latin. The 21 pictorial woodcuts are of obstetrical subjects, mostly of the various positions of the foetus in utero, plus two medallion portraits on colophon page, one ornamental woodcut initial. II. VD16 B 356; Panzer VI, 111, 359. First edition of the treaty on marriage offered by the Venetian humanist Barbaro (1390-1454) to his friend Laurent de Medici on the occasion of his marriage in 1416 with Ginevra Cavalcanti. Among the duties of women, he insists on the need for noble women to breast-feed their infants themselves. Includes a beautiful mark of the pharmacy Setzer on the last leaf. *Dedication from the gynecologist Tarnier to Professor Herrgott, dated 1886/Paris. Inventor of the forceps and a supporter of Lister's aseptic practices, Etienne (or Stéphane) Tarnier (1828-1897) devised for the premature Incubator, reducing infant mortality by almost 30% in the Maternity Hospital in three years. Most of his work was published in the "Traité de l'art des accouchements" published under the names of Tarnier and his assistant Burin. His dedication to François Herrgott (1814-1907), professor in the faculty of medicine of Nancy and historian of medicine, occupies the whole verso of the first flyleaf. One can imagine that the few annotations in red ink are by Herrgott's hand. Our copy is quoted by Herrgott in his Essai d'une histoire de l'obstétricien, Paris, 189, II, p. 28. Very Good.

      Florentiae (Florence]: Bernardi Juntae [Bernardo Giunta], May 1532. - - Small octavo, 6-1/2 inches high by 4 inches wide. Bound in full early natural vellum titled in holograph on the spine. The covers are slightly warped and stained. The collation is as follows: [1] blank, leaves [1] through 131, and [1] leaf illustrated with an attractive printer's mark; followed by leaves [1] to 52, with an attractive pictorial title page illustrated with a variant printer's mark. (The leaves are numbered on the rectos only, thus the first book has 264 pages and the second book has 104 pages). The colophon is printed on the verso of leaf 131. As issued, pages 42, 44 and 46 are misnumbered as 34, 6, and 38 respectively. There is evidence of early worming affecting the endpapers and pastedowns as well as the inner and outer edges of the last page. The hinges are cracked and the rear endpaper is torn. There is otherwise only occasional minor foxing and faint occasional staining. Good. Mounted on the front pastedown is Leo Samuel Loschi's discreet attractive book label "Ex libri Leonis S. Olschki bibliopolae Veneti". Leo Samuel Olschki founded the Libreria Antiquaria Editrice in Verona, Italy in 1886. The firm moved to its permanent home in Florence in 1897. It is among Italy's most distinguished publishers of important works in the humanities.This book subsequently came into the collection of Arthur Mullin, with his serpent & anchor bookplate mounted on the front pastedown.As noted by Bandino ["De Florentina Juntarum Typographia"], the second work by Lucius Florus does not include a date or identify a printer. However, the Giunta mark with 2 infants holding a lily and with cornucopias at their sides is present on the title page.The Roman historian Titus Livius [Livy] (64 or 59 BC to 17 AD) was responsible for the monumental history of Rome, "Ab Urbe Condita". It is his only surviving work and only a fragment of it exists. The book offered here describes the fifth decade and of that only the first five books remain. These give an account of the Roman war with the Macedonian King Perseus. The corruption of several Roman governors is described as well as the Third Punic War.

         De Symmetria partium in rectis formis humanorum corporum, Libri in Latinum conversi (per J. Camerarium).

      Nürnberg: in aedib. viduae Durerianae, 1532. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Folio (301 x 204 mm). 80 unnumbered leaves (last blank). Signatures: A-E6 F4 G-N6 O4. Title with 8-line verse to the reader above Dürer's woodcut monogram, gothic letter text in single and double columns, woodcuts throughout including 85 full-length figures of the human body. 18th-century vellum over pasteboards with gilt-lettered morocco spine label (extremities little rubbed, corners bumped, little worming to boards, head of spine and endpapers), marbled endpapers, blue-colored edges. Minor browning and spotting to text, title and a few other pages with light brown stains, erased stamp(?) on final leaf. Provenance: bookplate with monogram "VGL" to front pastedown and small stamp to title-page. A fine, unmarked and unrestored copy. ----Adams D-1044; Fairfax Murray German Books 152; Bohatta 20. - First Latin edition by Camerarius of book I and II of the "Vier Bücher der menschlichen Proportion" (books III and IV were published in 1534 under the title "De varietate"). The woodcuts are derived from the German edition of 1528. Unlike his Italian contemporary, Leonardo da Vinci, who published nothing, Dürer lived and worked in the world of printing and engraving. Dürer's treatise on human proportion was the earliest of the three theoretical works written in his later years. Dürer began formulating mathematical rules for the proportions of the human form soon after his first trip to Venice in 1494-5. For his mathematical formulations he drew upon the works of antiquity as well as the Italian rediscoveries; as for his other theoretical works, his goal was to establish a scientific basis for aesthetics and to provide practical guidelines for draftsmanship. "The book is the synthesis of Dürer's solutions to his self-imposed formal problems; in it he sets forth his formal aesthetic... Dürer's aesthetic rules are based firmly in the laws of optics--indeed, he even designed special mechanical instruments to aid in the measurement of human form. He used the height of the human body as the basic unit of measurement..." (DSB). Erste lateinische Ausgabe der 1528 deutsch erschienenen grundlegenden Proportionslehre der Renaissance. "De Symmetria" umfaßt Buch I u. II des deutschen Werkes. Die Illustrationen sind die der Original-Ausgabe. Ein von Bohatta vermuteter erster lateinischer Druck der "Symmetria" von 1528 existiert nicht. Very Good.

         Historie Fiorentine

      1st Edition Florence: Bernardo Di Giunta, 1532. FIRST FLORENCE EDITION, possibly the first edition overall, of an essential Renaissance text. SCARCE. Niccolo Machiavelli did not write that which we call history today. For him, history and historiography were one and the same, and the Florentine Historie is the best example of that. In 1520, Machiavelli was commissioned by Giulio de' Medici to write an account of the history of Florence. The book he produced "is the first example in Italian literature of a national biography, the first attempt in any literature to trace the vicissitudes of a people's life in their logical sequence, deducing each successive phase from passions or necessities inherent in preceding circumstance, reasoning upon them from general principles, and inferring corollaries for the conduct of the future." (Britannica).It is all the more unusual because Machiavelli followed the humanist style "of inventing speeches. Even though he was not present and could not have been present, he puts appropriate speeches into the mouths of actual historical figures as if they were characters in a play of his... Fact, in their [the humanists] view, needs to be filled out with opinion, and it is the duty of the historian, in the absence of scribes and witnesses, to infer human intention and to make it explicit in speeches, adding sense to actions in order to arrive at truth." (Harvey Claflin Mansfield, Machiavelli's Virtue).The reason behind Machiavelli's historiography as history is that he believed that histories should not just tell an account of what happened and when, but should be beneficial to the people of which they speak. Today, our historians are meant to distance themselves from their subjects; to Machiavelli, an intimate relation to the country about which he wrote was a necessity. The Florentine Historie, therefore, was not solely a commissioned work, but a tribute to "Machiavelli's desire to write a history that would inspire all lovers of the common good of man in whatever age or nation." The speeches he fabricated, the emotions behind the mere events he wrote about "are developed beyond dramatic requirements into expositions of social and political truths suggested by Florentine events. Incidentally, these orations enabled Machiavelli to deal with the problem of the Medici." (Allan Gilbret, Machiavelli).While Florentine Historie would not be considered an honest historical account today, the history that was presented to the Cardinal, by then Pope Clement VII, is perhaps truer than mere factual history. Because "his historical context includes both the facts of his time, which would have influenced his writing of history, and the historiography characteristic of his time, together with the conception of history underlying those historiographic methods," he created a far more complete image of Florence than could ever be garnered from an impersonal examination of the city's archives (Mansfield).ON THIS EDITION: After Machiavelli's death in 1527 there was a rush to publish his remaining works, and a fierce competition began between the Roman printer Blado and the Florentine printer Guinta to be the first to press. Although Giunta had been given the approval of Machiavelli's heirs and rushed to honor his fellow Florentine with elegant editions of his works, both Blado's and Giunta's editions of The Florentine History appeared almost simultaneously. It is now presumed that Blado's Roman edition, dated 25 March 1532, preceded Giunta's by two days. Some copies of the Giunta edition are dated 27 March 1532 in the colophon, while others such as the present copy are dated 16 March 1532. It is possible that Giunta printed an incorrect 16 March date to convince the public that his edition was indeed first.Florence: Bernardo di Giunta, 1532. Quarto, contemporary full blind-ruled decorative calf rebacked. Without the four errata leaves, as usual. Two early signatures to title page. Small hole to title page (not affecting text), occasional light soiling to margins. A beautiful, clean, wide-margined copy of an exceptionally rare and important edition. Very Good.
