Preface with historiated initial. Interpretations and commentaries on the teachings of Amos, one of the twelve minor prophets who was active from app. 760-755 B.C.

Contains an elaborate printer's device on colophon at rear. Johannes Brenz (1499-1570) was a Protestant Reformer of the Duchy of Württemberg. "He received his education at Heidelberg, where, shortly after becoming magister and regent of the Realistenbursa in 1518, he delivered philological and philosophical lectures. He also lectured on the Gospel of Matthew, only to be prohibited on account of his popularity and his novel exegesis, especially as he had already been won over to the side of Luther, nit only through hid ninety-five theses, but still more by personal acquaintance with him at the disputation at Heidelberg in April 1518. In 1522 Brenz was threatened with a trial for heresy, but escaped through a call to the pastorate of Hall." (Schaff-Herzog). Brenz is known for his activities on behalf of the Protestant movement and his various controversies related to the Augsburg Confession, his struggle against Calvinism and the Bishop Hosius of Ermland among others.

      - Basileae In Officina Frobeniana [Bâle, Johann Froben], 1533. In-4, plein veau brun souple de l'époque orné d'un décor estampé à froid, dos à 6 nerfs gothiques, plats garnis d'un jeu de roulettes d'encadrement historiées, filets à froid, fleurons en écoinçons et central, tranches rouges, (1) f., (70), 492, (24) p. Premier tirage de cette édition de référence des œuvres de Tacite, établie et commentée par l'humaniste alsacien Beatus Rhenanus (1485-1547), ami et assistant d’Erasme à Bâle. Elle donne les 21 livres des Annales, la Germanie, le Dialogue des orateurs et la vie d’Agricola. Bel marque de Frobenius gravée au titre et en colophon, lettrines gravées sur bois. Cette édition reconnue pour la qualité de l’établissement du texte, comme pour ses commentaires, contribua à fixer les fondations d’un nouveau savoir sur les œuvres de l’historien latin. Longtemps méconnu, Tacite ne suscita intérêt, éditions et travaux critiques que tardivement à la Renaissance. "Beatus Rhenanus publie (dans cette édition de 1533 des ‘Opera omnia’ de Tacite] ses deux commentaires: l’un stylistique et lexical, l’autre philologique, consacrés à l’ensemble de l’œuvre de l’historien latin. Un "Trésor des constructions", expressions et vocables usuels à Tacite est placé au début de cet important volume (35 feuillets) ( ). Rhenanus a, dans la même édition, offert au lecteur un second opus: après l’histoire et le style, c’est au tour de la philologie de recevoir les honneurs d’un commentaire, intitulé ‘Castigationes’ consacré aux 5 premiers livres des 'Annales' " (cf. Lucie Claire, 'Commenter les Annales de Tacite dans la première moitié du XVIe siècle: André Alciat, Beatus Rhenanus, Emilio Ferretti', Anabases, 15/2012, p. 115-128). (Adams, T-24.

         Le Parangon des nouvelles honnestes utiles et delectables.

      Lyons: François Juste, 1533. Hardcover. Near Fine. 8vo, [14 x 6.3 cm]. (1) f., 80 ff., woodcut architectural title border incorporating printer's initials, 29 small woodcuts flanked by columns, black-on-white woodcut initials. Bound in 19th-century red morocco gilt by Trautz-Bauzonnet, gold-tooled green morocco doublures, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, in a pale blue chemise with green morocco spine label. Binding pristine, with the fine ex libris of its previous owners affixed to the front flyleaf. A 1-cm paper flaw at f. 38 affecting a few letters, very faint uniform browning. Only recorded copy of a very early illustrated edition (3rd) of this anonymous collection of 'nouvelles,' a literary genre presenting brief prose narratives taken from bourgeois life. The Parangon des nouvelles honnestes utiles et delectables, following the famous Les cent nouvelles nouvelles (c. 1460), collected vernacular tales purporting to be both true and current (i.e., relating to recent events, hence 'nouvelle') and so eschewed more established prose forms which relied on classical mythology, historical exempla, chivalric fantasy, and animal fable, in favor of reports on greedy merchants, drunken millers, lascivious housewives, and the like. Largely derived from the Decameron of Boccaccio, Lorenzo Valla's Apologues, Poggio Bracciolini's Facetiae and the anonymous Germanic Ulenspiegel, the Parangon packaged together old and new for popular consumption, resulting in what one scholar has called "a magma ready for every kind of metamorphosis" (Pérouse [1977], p. 7), that is to say, the unformed raw material that soon would cool into the more recognizable and longstanding genres of the novel and short story. These "issues of novelty, fictional accreditation, historical veracity, and the chivalric narrative past [.] were also played out in a variety of other critical settings encompassing works both of shorter and longer fiction," most famously in François Rabelais' proto-novels Pantagruel (1532) and Gargantua (1534), exact contemporaries of the Parangon (G. Norton, p. 306). Often bawdy and salacious, the nouvelle was initially overlooked by scholars of early-modern literature, but today its status as a "non-mimetic, self-conscious, intertextual, ironic, perhaps even skeptical mode of writing" has cemented it as a pivotal precursor to a modern literary sensibility (LaGuardia, p. 16). In short, the nouvelle frustrates and delights scholars today much as it did its contemporaries, and its importance springs from the uneasy, active reading it requires from its readers. The present volume's tall and slender 'agenda' format - a shape associated with easy portability and personal use - is very rare in this period, occurring (when it does) almost exclusively in French Books of Hours, a genre which blends private devotion (prayer) with a need for constant practical reference (liturgical hours, calendars) (see the Heures printed by Antoine Chappiel [1504], Pierre le Dru [1505-6], Gillet Hardouin [1509 and 1515], T. Kerver [1514], and Germain Hardouin [1534 and 1526]; a notable secular exception is the Manuale Vergilianum [Strasbourg, Johann Grüninger, 1507-10?]). It is intriguing that the impious, casual tales of the Parangon should have been printed in a physical format with such pious overtones: does its unusual form merely result from a desire for easy practical use, or does it carry some surplus of ironic meaning? Even the book's program of illustration participates in an (oddly modern) mixing of material: its numerous woodcuts are quite clearly borrowed from other (still untraced) sources: figures seated at dinner, a scholar with his amanuensis, women spinning yarn, a statue of Mars, a monk preaching in his pulpit, lovers embracing, a man drunk on wine, a mourner bent over a shrouded corpse, a Janus-faced figure, a sword duel - these all invite readers to puzzle out how such images might relate to each other and to the texts they supposedly elucidate...

         Cosmographicus…

      Antwerp: Arnold Birckman,, 1533. iam denuo intetegritati restitutus per Gemmam Phrysium. Item eiusdem Gemmae Phrysii Libellus de Locorum describendorum ratione, & de eorum distantiis inueniendis, nunque ante hac visus. Octavo (219 × 150 mm). Recently rebound to style in full vellum, green morocco label, yapp edges. Printed title with large engraved vignette, 49 text illustrations and diagrams including 4 full-page images, 4 with volvelles, and one illustration with a string guide. Small contemporary or near-contemporary annotation "Cotta" to title page. Minor dampstain to fore-edge slightly affecting margins, some spotting and toning to contents, slight crease to edge of second volvelle. Excellent condition with all volvelles in working order. First enlarged edition with the addition of the Libellus de locorum describendorum ratione, & de eorum distantiis inveniendis of Gemma Frisius, in which Frisius first described the principle of triangulation for use in surveying. The Cosmographia of Petrus Apianus was one of the most popular books of the century. With material derived from the Luculentissima quaedam terrae totius descriptio of Johann Schöner (Nuremberg, 1515), Apianus gave vivid descriptions of the newly discovered lands in the New World. The other popular feature was the volvelles designed to help with practical mathematical problems relating to time-telling, the calendar, and astronomy and astrology. The first edition was published at Landshut, 1524, with three volvelles. Apianus' book was then corrected by the noted cartographer-mathematician-physician Gemma Frisius for the second edition of 1529, in which a fourth volvelle showing the phases of the moon was included. An abridged version called Cosmographiae introductio was published in Ingolstadt, 1531, containing a number of woodcut illustrations but no volvelles.

         Historiarum Indicarum libri XVI. Selectarum, item, ex India epistolarum libri IV. Accessit Ignatii Loiolae vita. Omnia ab auctore recognita, & emendata. In singula copiosus index.Cologne, Arnoldus Mylius, 1590. 2 volumes bound as 1. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      Borba de Moraes, p. 508; Cordier, Japonica, col. 63; Sabin 43771. Second Cologne edition of a classic work on "the Indies", including both the West and East Indies. This important account of Portuguese discoveries and missionary work covers India, the East Indies, Persia, Japan, China, Brazil and other parts of America, and was written by the humanist and Jesuit Giovanni Pietro Maffei (1533?-1603). The first edition was published in 1588 in Florence, and the first Cologne edition appeared in 1589. Maffei's history almost immediately became very popular as it hit the market when curiosity about the Far East was at its height, and was repeatedly published in Latin and translated into Italian and French. Besides providing a systematic history of the missions, Maffei's work laid to rest many of the accusations that were then being made about the falsities and exaggerations being spread by the published letters.With a woodcut armorial bookplate on pastedown and some owners inscriptions on title-page. Some minor browning throughout and there were labels attached to parts two and three (one torn out), resulting in some minor stains in the margins of the facing leaves. A very good copy. Binding slightly soiled and with a couple minor restorations, but otherwise good.

Folio. With woodcut printer's device on title-page, numerous decorated woodcut initials and a double page woodcut world map "Typus cosmographus universalis" after Sebastian Münster. Modern calf.

      Alden & Landis 534/31; Harrisse, BAV 189; JCB I, p. 460; Karrow 58/47.1; Sabin 98279 (erroneously dated 1533); Shirley 70; VD 16, V20. First edition of Vadianus's influential description of the world, with the very important map of the world depicting America for almost the first time, showing the complete outline of South America and according to Sabin "lacking in most of the copies located". The map is a reduced size copy of the world map attributed to Sebastian Münster published in Grynaeus's Novis orbis regionum ac insularum veteribus incognitarum ... (Basel, 1532) itself primarily based on Waldseemüller's map of 1507.Vadianus describes all the continents, seas and islands, regions, mountains and towns of the world, with separate chapters on Europe, Africa, Asia, Palestine and even Paradise, offering a geographical reading of biblical history. The description of America can be found on pp. 263-273. In the same year an octavo edition was published (without the map), later followed by several other editions.Small worm hole in the outer margin of pp. 175-226. Very good copy.

         Opticae libri quatuor ex voto Petri Rami novissimo Fridericum Risnerum per ejusdem in mathematicis adjutorem olim conscripti, ...Kassel, Wilhelm Wessel (sold by Johann Berner in Frankfurt), 1615. 4to. With numerous optical, astronomical and mathematical woodcut diagrams in text, woodcut headpieces, tailpieces and initials, and headpieces built up from cast fleurons. 18th-century tan calf, gold-tooled double fillets, re-backed in sheepskin.

      VD17 12:159504X; cf. DSB 11, p. 468; Poggendorff II, col. 648; not in Honeyman; Houzeau-Lancaster. Second edition of a renowned optical and mathematical work by Friedrich Risner (1533-1580), apprentice and colleague of Peter Ramus, the famous anti-Aristotelian humanist and educational reformer. The first edition appeared in 1606.Risner's mathematical abilities were highly praised by Ramus, who, in his will, even established a chair in mathematics at the Collège Royal de France with Risner as its first occupant. The first major result of the collaboration between Risner and Ramus was Risner's edition (1572) of two manuscripts discovered by Ramus: the first edition of Optics by Ibn al-Haytham (in Latin Alhazen), who worked at Cairo in the first half of the 11th century; and a greatly improved edition of Perspectiva by Witelo (in Latin Vitello), a Polish scientist of the second half of the 13th century. Alhazen's work preserved all that was known by the ancients in the field of optics, and Risner's edition and his own observations and corrections helped establish the science upon a new foundation. Risner's present Opticae , based partly on Witelo, appeared only posthumously, but was probably outlined by Ramus and further developed by Risner during the early years of their collaboration. It exerted a great influence on Snell and others.Badly browned, but otherwise in good condition, with an abrasion on the title-page and last text page (probably erasing a library stamp), not affecting the text. Re-backed and with some restorations to the boards.

         The Essays of Michael Seigneur de Montaigne. The seventh edition, with very considerable amendments and improvements. From the most elegant and accurate French edition of Peter Coste.

      Three volumes (complete). Octavo. Volume I: [28],414,[26] pages/ Volume II: [4],608 pages / Volume III: [36], [4],468,[27] pages. Original Hardcover (contemporary calf with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached (this volume needs attention from a bookbinder). Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que sçay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitlyhis own judgmentmakes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo.

Folio. With woodcut printer's device on title-page, numerous decorated woodcut initials and a double page woodcut world map "Typus cosmographus universalis" after Sebastian Münster. Modern calf.

      - Alden & Landis 534/31; Harrisse, BAV 189; JCB I, p. 460; Karrow 58/47.1; Sabin 98279 (erroneously dated 1533); Shirley 70; VD 16, V20. First edition of Vadianus's influential description of the world, with the very important map of the world depicting America for almost the first time, showing the complete outline of South America and according to Sabin "lacking in most of the copies located". The map is a reduced size copy of the world map attributed to Sebastian Münster published in Grynaeus's Novis orbis regionum ac insularum veteribus incognitarum (Basel, 1532) itself primarily based on Waldseemüller's map of 1507.Vadianus describes all the continents, seas and islands, regions, mountains and towns of the world, with separate chapters on Europe, Africa, Asia, Palestine and even Paradise, offering a geographical reading of biblical history. The description of America can be found on pp. 263-273. In the same year an octavo edition was published (without the map), later followed by several other editions.Small worm hole in the outer margin of pp. 175-226. Very good copy.

         Ercole ed Anteo

      1533 - Bulino, 1533, datato e monogrammato in lastra in basso al centro. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel secondo stato di tre, avanti l’indirizzo dell’editore Antonio Salamanca. Magnifica prova, particolarmente contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva priva di filigrana, rifilata al rame o con sottilissimi margini, tracce di colla al verso, in eccellente stato di conservazione. La composizione raffigura una delle fatiche di Ercole, che soffoca Anteo in presenza della Terra, raffigurata con la donna seduta. L’incisione, nonostante sia realizzata nel 1533, viene eseguita nello stile delle opere fiorentine del Raimondi del 1508-10; sebbene derivi da un disegno di Raffaello, è tradotta in maniera "michelangiolesca", ed è stilisticamente simile al successivo lavoro del Veneziano, Gli Arrampicatori, che deriva appunto da Michelangelo. Ex collezione Earl Spencer Althorp (Lugt 2341a). Engraving, 1533, dated and signed with monogram on lower centre plate. After a subject by Raphael. Example in the second state of three, before the address of Antonio Salamanca. Magnificent work, extremely clear, printed on contemporary laid paper without watermark, trimmed to platemark of with thin margins, signs of glue on verso, in excellent condition. The composition depicts one of the twelve labours of Hercules, who suffocates Antaeus before the Earth, represented by a sitting woman. Although realized in 1533, the engraving shows the style of the Folrentine works of Raimondi (1508-10). Although it derives from a drawing of Rapahel, the style this works is close to Michelangelo’s.

         The Essays of Michael Seigneur de Montaigne. The seventh edition, with very considerable amendments and improvements. From the most elegant and accurate French edition of Peter Coste.

      Three volumes (complete). Octavo. Volume I: [28],414,[26] pages/ Volume II: [4],608 pages / Volume III: [36], [4],468,[27] pages. Original Hardcover (contemporary calf with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached (this volume needs attention from a bookbinder). Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que sçay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitlyhis own judgmentmakes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo.

         Lettera indirizzata al ?Gov(erna)t(or)e De Trento? (Girolamo Magnanini) firmata ?Filius Alfonsus Dux Ferrarie?, datata ?Ferrarie XXVIII Junij 1533?

      1533. 1 pagina in- folio, con segni di piegatura e indirizzo e sigillo al verso. Lettera chiaramente vergata e firmata dalla cancelleria ducale in merito alla raccomandazione di Giacomo Cagnaccini, inviata dalla famiglia Este all'allora governatore della città di Trento "Hieronimus Magnaninus", il cui nome si legge in calce sulla destra. Con la presente la famiglia ducale voleva garantire personalmente sulla probità e valore del neo-eletto Cagnacini nella commissione podestarile di Trento. Girolamo Magnanini fu amico di Ercole II d'Este e promosse la costruzione del celebre Palazzo Roverella in Ferrara; il Cagnacini fu dotto professore di diritto canonico e diritto civile nella medesima città. Curioso notare la controversa firma della missiva "Filius Alfonsus Dux Ferrarie", che farebbe propendere per un'attribuzione della stessa ad Ercole più che ad Alfonso. "La.. comunità de Trento ha eletto tre persone, per la Loro podestaria, tra li quali lui è uno degli nominati et mi prega voglia ridomandarlo.." Ercole II d'Este (Ferrara, 4 aprile 1508 ? Ferrara, 3 ottobre 1559) fu il quarto duca di Ferrara, Modena e Reggio (1534-1559).

         Cosmographia introductio: cum quibusdam geometriae ac astronomiae principus ad eam rem necessariis.

      Venice: Io. Antonius da Sabbio & others, July, 1533. Small octavo, with a large woodcut on title-page of an astrolabe enclosing the world, full-page astronomical woodcut on the verso, numerous illustrations and diagrams in the text, printer's device on last leaf; old half red calf. Essential cosmographical text of the renaissance: the German humanist Apian, better known by the latinised form of his name as Apianus, produced a book in 1524 that became one of the most popular of all scientific works, an early geographical text with numerous woodcuts of the earth, the Zodiac, and examples of determining longitude and latitude. Its popularity was quite extraordinary by comparison with other popular books of the period: over nearly a century Apianus' text went through more than forty-five editions, in four languages, published in seven cities, by at least eighteen publishers.This rare early edition is an example of the popular shortened format of this widely-studied work on cosmography. It neatly summarises the Renaissance world view, and includes several references to Vespucci's discovery of America. The book is notable for 'the division of the earth into climatic zones, the uses of parallels and meridians, the determination of latitude, several methods for determining longitude including that of lunar distance, the use of trigonometry to determine distances, several types of map projections, and many other topics... ' (Karrow).Apianus' work in its full-length form was first published in 1524; it first appeared in this popular format in Antwerp in 1532 or 1533. This is the second edition in this form, and the first of at least seven such editions produced in Italy in the sixteenth century. A few stains but a very good copy.

This is also the first Euclid to have the diagrams inset in the text. The Greek text was edited by Protestant theologian Simon Grynaeus, professor of Greek at Basel University. Grynaeus used two manuscripts - one sent by Lazarus Bayfius from Venice and the other supplied by John Claymond, president of Magdalen and later of Corpus Christi College, Oxford. The Elements occupy 268 pages, followed by 115 pages containing the four books of the commentary on the first book of the Elements by the brilliant fifth-century neoplatonist mathematician and astronomer Proclus. 'Because of his interest in the principles underlying mathematical thought and their relation to ultimate mathematical principles, Proclus' commentary is a notable - and also the earliest -contribution to the history of mathematics. Its numerous references to the views of Euclid's predecessors and successors, many of them otherwise unknown to us, render it an invaluable source for the history of science' (DSB). Near Fine....

         Ephemeridies recognitae et ad vngem Castigatae... Eiusdem schemata & praedictiones ad Annum vsque virginei partus 1552 Eiusdem Isagogicus in totam ferme Astrolgiam Libellus...

      First edition Venice: Sumptibus Lucentonii Juntae Typographi, 1533. A fine copy, with contemporary annotations, of these very rare ephemerides, containing tables as well as astrological prognostications for the years 1534 through 1551, each preceded by a special title page.?Horblit 447 (two leaves in in facsimile); Honeyman 1448 (10 leaves defective). According to Houzeau and Lancaster, the ephemerides are calculated after the Alphonsine Tables, and for the meridian of Venice. Astrologer and mathematician, Luca Gaurico was born at Giffoni, near Naples, in 1476 and died at Rome in 1558. As a mathematician he is best known for the first published Latin translations of Archimedes' works De Mensura Circuli and De Quadratura Parabolae (1503). He went on to publish an edition of Pecham's Perspectiva Communis (Venice, 1504), and Trapezuntius's translation of the Almagest (Venice, 1528). Rose (p. 120) suggests that Gaurico may have met Copernicus at Padua, as they were both at the university in the early years of the 16th century, and would have shared a common interest in Ptolemy and Archimedes. In 1531 he was appointed professor of mathematics at Ferrara, where Scaliger was one of his pupils. Gaurico's contemporary reputation stemmed from his astrological prognostications. He was appointed 'astrological consultant' to Catherine de Medici after correctly predicting (aged 14) the ascension to the papacy of Catherine's great-uncle Giovanni de Medici. He became famous throughout Europe after twice predicting in 1529 and 1532 the ascension of Alessandro Farnese who, as Paul III, rewarded him by making him bishop of Giffoni in 1539, transferring him in 1545 to the see of Civitate nella Capitanata. His most famous astrological work is his Tractatus Astrologicus (1552) which gave charts of the foundation of various buildings and cities as well as the natal charts of popes, cardinals and other eminent religious leaders, kings and nobles, scholars, musicians and artists. Gardner 488; Houzeau & Lancaster 14657; Riccardi I 579-80. Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, 1975; Thorndike, History of Magic and Experimental Science, Vol. IV, 1941.

      - Van der Linde 247; BMC STC German, p. 70; USTC 628444 (citing VD16); VD 16, D319; cf. Adams J-333 (Latin ed.). First German edition, of a rare and important early biography of the famous Dutch heretic and Anabaptist David Joris. Banished from Holland for his overt rejection of the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church, Joris fled to Friesland, where he met the Anabaptists. He joined them in 1533 after his baptism and tried to appease the disputing parties within the sect. Ecstatic and susceptible to flattery, he declared himself a prophet with a divine mission and supernatural powers. Soon he got many followers, but he and his group were also severely persecuted. In 1554, he came to live in Basle after five years on the run from the Dutch authorities. There he lived with his family as a rich and respected citizen under the name of Jan van Brugge, pretending to be a Reformed refugee while he still kept in touch with his followers in the Southern Netherlands. The present biography is especially valuable for Joris's life in Basle (1554-1556). With a small hole in 1 leaf, waterstains in the fore-edge and head margins, running slightly into the text, but still in good condition. Disbound and some of the sewing lost, so that 1 quire is detatched.

Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que sçay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitlyhis own judgmentmakes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo. His knighthood ended in 1813 upon the death of his father, when he acceded to the Peerage as the thirteenth Viscount Dillon of Costello-Gallen.
