        Oratione de la pace di M. Claudio Tolomei

      Antonio Blado Asolano, Roma 1534 - In-4 (220x125 mm.), cc. n.n. 44 [segnatura A-L4]. Legatura in mezza pelle a dorso liscio con titolo dorato e finti scompartimenti delimitati da ferri a catenella. Emblema della Pace all'altare della Concordia impresso xilograficamente in tondo al frontespizio, delimitato da due foglie d'acanto e dal privilegio papale. Capilettera xilografici di decorazione, il primo a fondo nero, insegna dello stampatore al colophon. Esemplare molto fresco e marginoso. Preceduta da una lettera prefatoria sul buon impiego della lingua toscana nell'arte retorica del lucchese Giovanni Guidiccioni (1500-1541) al suo concittadino Vincenzo Buonvisi, la presente orazione vede il senese Claudio Tolomei, ancora esule dalla propria patria per tendenze filo-medicee, fare accorato appello a papa Clemente VII affinché venga allontanato dalla penisola lo spettro della guerra, invitandolo alla riflessione sulla santità della pace, vero motivo di vanto e di gloria. Va rammentato che Clemente VII si trovava allora diviso tra la profferta alleanza di Carlo V e la prossimità alla corona francese, suggellata nel 1533 dal matrimonio tra la nipote Caterina de' Medici e Enrico di Valois, futuro Re di Francia.

Latin text, 1534. Folio, approximately 320 x 210 mm, 12¾ x 8¼ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page and repeated on final page, 97 large woodcut illustrations, many full or almost full page, woodcut pictorial initials throughout, pages: (12), 383, (1), bound in full contemporary vellum, early hand lettering to spine, all edges red. Vellum darkened and with a small dark stain on lower cover, wrinkled across centre of upper cover, spine also wrinkled and with 1 tiny chip to vellum, pale damp stain to inner edge of first 3 leaves, another to lower inner corner of 13 leaves near the end, title page faintly foxed and missing tip of upper corner, pale age-browning to pages throughout, a very occasional small light stain, small closed tear to 2 inner margins at lower edge, another affecting 4 lines of text, all expertly repaired with no loss of text, 1 very small corner missing, small neat repair to lower inner edge of 2 adjacent leaves, 1 of them has a slight crease and is very slightly ragged at lower edge, the other is slightly ragged at fore-edge, small chip and tiny hole to fore-edge margin of last leaf, final page a little spotted. Binding tight and firm. Overall a very good copy. Roberto Valturio (1413 -1483) was an Italian military engineer to Sigismondo Malatesta, ruler of Rimini. This work was first printed in Latin in Verona in 1472 and was the first printed book to show technical military equipment. "The historical importance of the De Re Militari lies in the fact that it is the first book printed with illustrations of a technical or scientific character depicting the progressive engineering ideas of the author's own time. ...The Verona Valturius and its reprints were the handbooks of the military leaders of the Renaissance, and Leonardo da Vinci, when acting as chief engineer to Cesare Borgia, possessed a copy and borrowed some of its designs." Printing & the Mind of Man, page 7, No. 10. This edition was edited by Paolo Ramusio, who signs the preliminary dedication. The woodcuts are reversed free copies of those in the 1483 Italian edition. They show the equipment necessary for the military and naval engineer including weapons, revolving gun turrets, siege engines, platforms and ladders for sieges, battering rams, paddle wheels, flotation devices, a lifebelt, something resembling a tank, pontoon and other bridges, a completely closed boat that could be half submerged, etc. See: Cockle, A Bibliography of Military Books up to 1642, p.133, No. 501; Ruth Mortimer, Harvard College Library, Volume 2, page 656, No. 536; Spaulding & Karpinski, Early Military Books in the University of Michigan Libraries, EN TIBI LECTOR ROBERTUM VALTURIUM AD ILLUSTREM HEROA page 2, No. 6.

      Sans lieu ni nom d'imprimeur, 1534 (en realité France, XVIIs.). - in-12. 147pp. Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné (Reliure du XVIIs.). Le "De Immortalitate Animae" est le principal ouvrage du philosophe italien Pietro Pomponazzi (1462-1525). Soutenant que, si l'âme humaine était individuellement immortelle selon l'Evangile et selon l'Eglise, elle était mortelle d'après les doctrines d'Aristote, il fut taxé d’hérétique et persécuté. La première édition parut en 1525. Cette édition à la date de 1534 a été imprimée au XVIIs. «La typographie est très probablement française, parisienne même et l'on peut imaginer qu'elle sort de presses que Naudé n'ignorait pas» ( P. Jammes, Cat. "Libertins Erudits", 1970). Titre dans un bel encadrement gravé sur bois. Reliure un peu restaurée. Bon exemplaire.

Scarce edition illustrated with 15 wood engraved insets. (The first printed edition of Sallust was published in 1470.) With commentary by various authorities surrounding Sallust's text. Born into a plebeian family, the Roman historian Sallust (85-35 BCE) was a partisan and friend of Julius Caesar, who installed him as governor of Africa Nova, a position that allowed him to amass great wealth through extortion, graft and oppression. He escaped condemnation through his connection to Caesar and retired to Rome in luxury. Two of his works survive as complete texts, Cataline's War (his first published work) and the Jurgenthine War; only fragments of his Histories remain. Sallust strongly opposed the old Roman aristocracy which he described as vicious and depraved. In Caesar he saw a leader who might strengthen Roman morality and politics, though his own personal ethics were notable only in what they lacked. As a writer he showed a lively, unusual and epigrammatic style, often employing either archaic terms or even creating neologisms. Other classical writers, including Tacitus and Quintillian, considered Sallust an historian of the first rank. WorldCat locates three copies, including one at the Houghton. OCLC accession # 83423551.

Very rare volume of verse in praise of the noblewomen of Venice, loosely organised in four parts, commencing with thirteen stanzas of ottava rima (folios A2 recto-A4 verso) in praise of Venice and of Venetian women in general, whom the author imagines in a triumphal procession through an arbour, garlanded with flowers, their blond heads (capeibiondi) crowned with wreaths, each lady holding aloft a triumph card, as if it were a trophy. The second part has a pictorial sub-title and consists of twenty-two stanzas of ottava rima (folios B1 verso-C1 recto), with headings associ­ating specific women with the tarocchi trumps (Major Arcana). The third part comprises twenty-one stanzas of ottava rima (folios C1 recto-C4 verso) addressed to the author's 'Fenice', in which her physical attributes are praised one-by-one; the fourth part consists of two quatrains and two stanzas of terza rima (folio C4 verso). No other publication of the author is known. [img-2338-left-large_default] Fig. 1 The only recorded use of this woodcutimpresa(page height 194 mm) The second part has attracted the attention of historians of trionphi or tarocchi card games, as an example of 'tarocchi appropriati' offering evidence of the sequence (i.e. relative values) of the trumps before the cards were numbered and trick-taking values codified. Pomeran starts with 'The World' and runs to 'The Fool', with variations to the usual order, and also unusual names: 'Traditore' (for The Hanged Man), 'Tempo' (for The Hermit), and 'Foco' (probably for The Tower). 1 The cards were not given any divinatory meaning, but simply worked into the poem as a playful exercise of verbal agility, humour, and flattery. The twenty-two trumps are presented by Pomeran in the following order and in praise of the women named: Mondo (The World) = Andriana Corner [Cornaro]Giustitia (Justice) = 'La bella' [Lucrezia?] BarbarigoAngelo (The Angel) = Isabella GrimaniSole (The Sun) = Laureta TronLuna (The Moon) = Grazimana [Zane, or Giane?]Stella (The Star) = Isabetta Sanuto (Sanudo)Foco (Fire) = Bianca Contarini 2 Diauolo (The Devil) = Laura BollaniMorte (Death) = Paola CapelloTraditore (The Traitor) = [Isabetta?] MocenigoTempo (Time) = Maria LeoneRota (The Wheel [of Fortune]) = Paola MoroFortezza (Fortitude) = Paola QueriniAmore (Love) = Orsina Foscoletta [Foscolo]Carro Triomphale (The Chariot) = Maria LoredanTemperanza (Temperance) = Bianca ZenoPapa (The Pope) = 'Famos' [Marina?] AlbertiImperatore (The Emperor) = Benedetta PisaniPapessa (The Popess) = Marieta Zane (Giane)Imperatrice (The Empress) = [Marietta?] PasqualigoBagattela (The Juggler) = Paola ValierMatto (The Fool) = Nicolosa Cornera [Cornaro] Pomeran's association of a named person with a trionphi card had few literary precedents. The inspiration for his book most probably was a popular parlour game and carnival entertainment, in which each player is assigned a tarot card or cards by an opponent, and then has to explain the reason for the attribution in an extemporaneous poetic composition. 3 Although 'tarocchi appropriati' developed into a literary phenomenon, later works - by Giovanni Battista Dragoncino, Girolamo Parabosco, Giovanni Battista Susio, and others - are not obviously indebted to Pomeran. The only clear evidence of the influence of his book is seen in Nicolò Franco's Tempio d'amore, published at Venice by Francesco Marcolini in 1536 (about half the thirty names listed by Pomeran reappear in Franco). 4 [img-2339-left-large_default] Fig. 2 The only recorded use of this woodblock (page height 194 mm) Our book has long been prized by collectors, for its two fine woodcuts (neither recorded in use elsewhere), the elegance of the cursive type, and rarity.

      apud Seb. Gryphium, 1534. In-8° (175x117mm), pp. 516, (42), legatura del primo '800 in m. pelle marrone con titolo in oro su tassello blu e fregi ornamentali in oro al dorso. Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Impresa tipografica al titolo. Sparsi aloni, sporadici lavori di tarlo marginali non lesivi del testo. Firma rinascimentale al titolo. Ex-libris dello storico saluzzese Carlo Muletti (1786-1869); al verso della sguardia anteriore è applicato un frammento manoscritto in data 1803 con firma di possesso dello stesso Muletti e annotazione coeva di Carlo Capelli da Mondovì relativa alla firma di possesso del frontespizio e alla discendenza del tale da uno studioso di Clavesana. Reimpressione lionese cinquecentesca del capolavoro valliano, il trattato forse il più rilevante dell'Umanesimo italiano sotto il prospetto linguistico-retorico (assai forte fu il suo influsso sullo stesso Erasmo). L'opera intese propugnare la restaurazione della purezza del latino antico (con Cicerone e Quintiliano come paradigmi stilistici) contro l'imbarbarimento che di tale lingua si era avuto nel corso del Medioevo, sostenendo al contempo l'uso del latino come organismo linguistico vivo, in cui la diretta conoscenza degli autori classici predominava sull'apprendimento meccanico di regole pure.

        Lexicon medicum, Graecolatinum

      Brea Pietro. 8vo. (16), 434, (22, of which the last 2 are blank) pp. With the author's device on the title-page.17th century mottled calf, marbled edges, some foxing in the margins, but a very good copy. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of what was to become the most popular medical lexicon of all times. It was preceded by works as Otto Brunfels', Onomastikon medicinae (1534), Henri Estienne's Thesaurus vocabulorum medicinalium (1560) and his Dictionarium medicum (1564), Jean de Gorris', Definitionum medicarum libri XXIII literis graecis distincti (1564), and Anuce Foes', Oeconomia Hippocratis alphabeti distincta (1588). Whereas these earlier authors concentrated only on the terminology of the ancients, Castelli also considered also modern and contemporary authors. The medical terminology was at that time very confused, so that it was not easy for the physicians to agree on the meaning of a word. With the purpose to fill that gap, Castelli sketched a history of medicine from ancient Egypt, where it was built as an autonomous science, and from ancient Greece, where the discipline received its foundations with Hippocrates, to early modern Europe passing through the Arabic physicians. Castelli shows how the medical lexicon has continuously changed and grown over the centuries thanks to the contribution of the alchemists and Paracelsus. Castelli's lexicon covers all branches of medicine, including chemistry and physics. The Lexikon was reprinted many times until the end of the 18th century: Venice, 1607 and 1626; Basel, 1628; Rotterdam (revised by A. Ravenstein), 1644, 1651, 1657, and 1665; Lyon, 1667; Nürnberg, 1682 (augmented and edited by J. Bruno under the title Castellus renovatus); (all subsequent editions bear the title Amaltheum Castellanum Brunonianum:) Padua, 1699, 1713, 1721, 1746, and 1755; Leipzig, 1713; Genève, 1741 and 1746; Amsterdam 1746; etc. "Das entscheidende Novum und damit das eigentliche Erfolgsgeheimnis von Castellis Werk ist wohl vielmehr darin zu suchen, daß sich sein Verfasser erstmals in der Geschichte der medizinischen Lexikographie, oder doch zumindest wesentlich stärker als die Autoren vor ihm, nicht ausschließlich auf die antiken Texte stützte, sondern die alte und die zeitgenössische medizinische Begrifflichkeit gleichermaßen behandelte. Das widersprach bis zu einem gewissen Grad den Idealen des philologischen Humanismus, erhöhte jedoch die praktische Nützlichkeit des Werks, das auf diese Weise die medizinische Fachsprache in ihrer Gesamtheit erschloß" (M. Stolberg, Das "Lexicon medicum graeco-latinum' des Bartolomeo Castelli, in: "Castellus renovatus: Hoc est lexicon medicum. Nürnberg, 1682. Archiv der europäischen Lexikographie, Abt. 3: Geschichte der Medizin; 10", Erlangen, 1994, passim). Born in Messina, Castelli studied theology, philosophy and medicine and taught medicine for many years in his hometown. He probably died around 1607 (cf. A. Hirsch, ed., Biographisches Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte aller Zeiten und Völker, München e Berlin 1962, I, p. 852).

      Vollständige Ausgabe in eindrucksvollem Handeinband der Zeit: 2 Bände, gebunden in braunes Leder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 23 x 33,3 cm mit blindgeprägter Deckel- und Rückendekoration sowie -illustration, jeweils im Original- Verlagspappschuber mit Rückentitel auf Papierschild. Mit Druckvermerk: "Diese Faksimile-Ausgabe der ersten vollständigen Lutherbibel von 1534 erschien im Dezember 1934 bei A. Foersters Verlag in Leipzig. Die Ausgabe wurde nach dem in der Universität-Bibliothek zu Leipzig befindlichen Original hergestellt. Das Papier lieferte die Firma Freytag & Petersen in Leipzig. Aufnahmen und Druck wurden vom Bibliographischen Institut AG in Leipzig vorgenommen. Die Einbandzeichnung schuf Wolfgang Bender nach dem Handeinband des Leipziger Buchbinder Adolar Baltershain, eines Zeitgenossen Martin Luthers. Der Einband entstand in den Werkstätten der Buchbinderei H. Fikentscher in Leipzig" - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        Comoedia Acolasti titulo inscripta De filio prodigo.

      Parisiis: Christianus Wechelus, 1534. 8vo (16.7 cm, 6.5"). 68 pp. (33–48 misbound), [1] f.; without the blank leaf E3. Early edition of the best-known and most influential of the Humanist "Prodigal Son"–inspired plays. The Dutch-born Gnapheus (1493–1568, also known by a range of variations on Wilhelm Gnapheus and William de Volder or van de Voldesgraft) wrote the Acolastus after emigrating to Germany to escape persecution by => the Inquisition. Performed originally by the author's Latin students, the comedy was first published in 1529; it became "the most famous play written in the Low Countries . . . often performed, printed, translated and adapted all over Europe" (Bloemendal, Neo-Latin Drama in Early Modern Europe, 305).    The work's importance and influence can be seen by its having been translated into German (1535), English (1540), and French (1564).    This Parisian printing is uncommon: WorldCat locates => only one U.S. institutional holding. Chrétien Wechel's attractive production bears his tree and bird printer's device on the title-page and again on the verso of the last leaf.    Provenance: Undeciphered 18th-century signature with many fussy flourishes, at rear. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard (sans indicia).         Brunet, II, 1629; Renouard, ICP, IV, 1008. Not in Adams. 19th-century half red morocco over mottled marbled paper–covered boards, leather edges with single gilt fillet, spine with gilt-dotted raised bands, gilt-ruled compartments, and gilt-stamped title, date, and compartment fleurons; edges, extremities, and joints showing light to moderate rubbing, spine slightly darkened. French combed marbled endpapers; original blue silk bookmarker attached and present. Pp. 33–48 bound in after p. 64. A few instances of faint early inked underlining and miniscule early inked annotations (in text); a very few scattered small spots of foxing, pages otherwise clean. Without the blank leaf E3 but retaining E4 with the printer's device. => An uncommon edition of an important work in a lovely copy.

        Historia navigationis in Brasiliam quæ et America dicitur. Qua describitur authoris navigatio, ... Secunda editio.Geneva, heirs of Eustache Vignon, 1594. 8vo. With 7 full-page and 1 folding woodcut plate (16 x 22.5 cm), 7 full-page woodcuts on integral leaves. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      Borba de Moraes, pp. 468-473; JCB I, p. 334; Rodrigues 1399 note; Sabin 40154. Rare second separately published Latin edition, with minor revisions, of a very important, successful and beautifully illustrated work on Brazil by the Protestant minister Jean de Léry (1534-1611). De Léry, born Margelle (Bourgogne) in 1534, altered the course of his life by deciding in 1556 to accompany a group of Protestant (Huguenot) ministers and faithful to Brazil under the protection of Admiral Caspard de Coligny (1519-1572). He left for Brazil with 13 others in November 1556, heading for the colony founded the year before by Vice-Admiral Nicolas Durand, Chevalier de Villegagnon on an island in the Bay of Rio de Janeiro. Léry's book attempts to provide French readers with an accurate description of Brazil, its people (including their shocking cannibalism) and its exotic plants and animals.With inscriptions on an endleaf. An owner's stamp on the back of the title-page and margins of two text pages has been partly erased. Very slightly browned, with some small marginal worm holes in the first and last leaves, but still in good condition. The binding also has some worm holes, but is also good, with the tooling very crisp and clear.

His widow, Yolande Bonhomme had already printed two octavo editions in 1526 and 1530. - See Darlow & Moule 6113 / Also referenced by Copinger 238 . ** The stem of jesse is an image which shows the figure of Jesse, larger than all the rest, reclining or sleeping (perhaps by analogy to Adam when his rib was taken) at the foot of the pictorial space. From his side or his navel springs the trunk of a tree or vine which ascends, branching to either side. On the branches, usually surrounded by formally scrolling tendrils of foliage, are figures representing the ancestors of Christ. The trunk generally ascends vertically to Mary and then Christ at the top..." - See Wikipedia . .

      Parisiis, apud Christianum Wechelum, 1534.. multo emaculatius, ac picturis, quae plurimae in eo sunt, elegantioribus expressum, quam cum Veronae inter initia artis chalcographicae Anno M.cccclxxxiii invulgaretur. Latin text, 1534. Folio, approximately 320 x 210 mm, 12¾ x 8¼ inches, printer's pictorial device on title page and repeated on final page, 97 large woodcut illustrations, many full or almost full page, woodcut pictorial initials throughout, pages: (12), 383, (1), bound in full contemporary vellum, early hand lettering to spine, all edges red. Vellum darkened and with a small dark stain on lower cover, wrinkled across centre of upper cover, spine also wrinkled and with 1 tiny chip to vellum, pale damp stain to inner edge of first 3 leaves, another to lower inner corner of 13 leaves near the end, title page faintly foxed and missing tip of upper corner, pale age-browning to pages throughout, a very occasional small light stain, small closed tear to 2 inner margins at lower edge, another affecting 4 lines of text, all expertly repaired with no loss of text, 1 very small corner missing, small neat repair to lower inner edge of 2 adjacent leaves, 1 of them has a slight crease and is very slightly ragged at lower edge, the other is slightly ragged at fore-edge, small chip and tiny hole to fore-edge margin of last leaf, final page a little spotted. Binding tight and firm. Overall a very good copy. Roberto Valturio (1413 -1483) was an Italian military engineer to Sigismondo Malatesta, ruler of Rimini. This work was first printed in Latin in Verona in 1472 and was the first printed book to show technical military equipment. "The historical importance of the De Re Militari lies in the fact that it is the first book printed with illustrations of a technical or scientific character depicting the progressive engineering ideas of the author's own time. ...The Verona Valturius and its reprints were the handbooks of the military leaders of the Renaissance, and Leonardo da Vinci, when acting as chief engineer to Cesare Borgia, possessed a copy and borrowed some of its designs." Printing & the Mind of Man, page 7, No. 10. This edition was edited by Paolo Ramusio, who signs the preliminary dedication. The woodcuts are reversed free copies of those in the 1483 Italian edition. They show the equipment necessary for the military and naval engineer including weapons, revolving gun turrets, siege engines, platforms and ladders for sieges, battering rams, paddle wheels, flotation devices, a lifebelt, something resembling a tank, pontoon and other bridges, a completely closed boat that could be half submerged, etc. Cockle, A Bibliography of Military Books up to 1642, p.133, No. 501.

With 7 full-page and 1 folding woodcut plate (16 x 22.5 cm), 7 full-page woodcuts on integral leaves. Contemporary blind-tooled vellum.

      Borba de Moraes, pp. 468-473; JCB I, p. 334; Rodrigues 1399 note; Sabin 40154. Rare second separately published Latin edition, with minor revisions, of a very important, successful and beautifully illustrated work on Brazil by the Protestant minister Jean de Léry (1534-1611). De Léry, born Margelle (Bourgogne) in 1534, altered the course of his life by deciding in 1556 to accompany a group of Protestant (Huguenot) ministers and faithful to Brazil under the protection of Admiral Caspard de Coligny (1519-1572). He left for Brazil with 13 others in November 1556, heading for the colony founded the year before by Vice-Admiral Nicolas Durand, Chevalier de Villegagnon on an island in the Bay of Rio de Janeiro. Léry's book attempts to provide French readers with an accurate description of Brazil, its people (including their shocking cannibalism) and its exotic plants and animals.With inscriptions on an endleaf. An owner's stamp on the back of the title-page and margins of two text pages has been partly erased. Very slightly browned, with some small marginal worm holes in the first and last leaves, but still in good condition. The binding also has some worm holes, but is also good, with the tooling very crisp and clear.

From his side or his navel springs the trunk of a tree or vine which ascends, branching to either side. On the branches, usually surrounded by formally scrolling tendrils of foliage, are figures representing the ancestors of Christ.

        Daniel's Dream Map)

      Wittenberg 1534 - La carta riproduce il cosiddetto "Mappamondo di Wittenberg", probailmente la carta del mondo più mistica di sempre. Raffigura una curiosa mappa dell'Europa, Africa ed Asia e deriva dalla letteratura apocalittica emanata da Wittenberg. La mappa di Hans Luft rappresenta la prima versione fedele a stampa del Mappamondo di Wittenberg, e per la prima volta è inserita in un testo di Martin Lutero, un commentario sul profeta Daniele del 1530. Una seconda edizione appare nel 1534, in una pagina di testo di una Bibbia. Xilografia, bella coloritura antica, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Rara. Woodcut with fine colouring, set in a text page of a Bible printed in Wittenberg. A somewhat curious map of Europe, Africa, and Asia is to be found in apocalyptic literature originally emanating from Wittenberg in 1530 or even 1529. The map was used by the printer Hans Luft to illustrate two works: one a commentary on the prophet Daniel by Martin Luther (1530) and another linking the vision of Daniel with the assaults of the Turks on the perimeters of Christian Europe at the time. The wood cut map is showing the four beasts of Daniel's Dream Map. The Wittenberg World Map, more commonly known in English as Daniel’s Dream Map, is probably the most mystical world map of all time.

        Orationes duae in Tholosam.

      (Lyon, Sébastien Gryphe, 1534). ____ Première édition. C'est le premier livre publié par Etienne Dolet. Né à Orléans en 1509 et mort sur le bûcher à Paris en 1546, il ne séjourna à Toulouse que deux ans. Il y étudia le droit et fut élu en 1533 orateur de la 'nation française'. Ce sont les discours qu'il y prononça s'en prenant avec violence aux Capitouls, tyranniques et barbares. Il dénonce les superstitions qui à Toulouse dénaturent la religion, défend la liberté d'association, fait sa propre apologie et se pose en défenseur de l'humanisme contre la barbarie des Toulousains. Dolet fut même arrêté quelques temps par la Sénéchaussée. "Le recueil ici présenté, composé par Dolet à son arrivée à Lyon en 1534, rassemble l'ensemble des pièces qu'il a voulu verser au dossier de son affaire toulousaine, lettres écrites de Toulouse puis de Lyon, poèmes adressés à G. Budé, à Marguerite de Navarre, à Jean de Pins, à Jean de Langeac, à Boyssoné ou à Guillaume Scève : autant d'illustrations en prose et en vers ... de ses talents d'écrivain et de ses convictions d'humaniste."

        Het boeck van den oproer der Weder-dooperen. Eerst int Latijn beschreven, ende ghedruckt tot Basel . Ende nu in Nederlandts overgheset. .Enkhuizen, Jacob Lenaertsz Meyn, 1614. Folio. With 1 half-page and 8 full-page engraved plates in text (one repeat). Contemporary vellum.

      - Mennonite Encyclopedia II, p. 816; Simoni H-186; STCN (5 copies); cf. Knuttel, Kerkgeschiedenis, pp. 150-151 (later editions). The first Dutch edition (in the first state) of a detailed and graphic description of the Anabaptist attempt to establish a sectarian government in Münster, known as the Münster Rebellion, 1534-1535. The work includes a description of the Amsterdam Riots and is dedicated by the printer to the city council of Enkhuizen and by the author to the council of Amsterdam. The fine, anonymous plates vividly illustrate the persecution and subsequent execution of the Annabaptists. The plate on leaf 3 is erroneously repeated on leaf 5; in later states this error has been corrected. The present copy is inscribed on the title-page by "Meynte Mathijs" [Iserman] from Leeuwarden, an ancestor of the Leeuwarden branch of the Siderius family. With the bookplate of M. van Brée on pastedown; slightly frayed at outer margins; some plates shaved; a few stains, also affecting some plates. Small pieces of vellum from front cover gone. A fair copy of a rare work on the Münster Rebellion.
