         Viehartznei. Erziehung, Gbrauch, Lernung, Artznei in zûfelligen vnd natürlichen Kranckheyten, aller zahmen, dem menschen gebräuchlichen, vnd geheymen Thier vnd viehs

      Egenolff, 1535. Woodcuts by Hans Weiditz depict a charming stockyard scene on the title page, and a trio of men with a horse on the first leaf (two of the three men have their eyes gouged out, presumably by a previous owner), plus 16 additional smaller text woodcuts of animals. Later vellum; interior lightly browned, faint water stain on first and last leaves, unobtrusive repair on the title page, otherwise an excellent copy. This rare treatise on veterinary medicine is distinguished for being the first illustrated edition from the 1530 printing. Much of the text is focused on equestrian care and medicine, with information on treating a variety of maladies including equine cancer and gallbladder disease. The latter part of the treatise explains the husbandry and medical treatment of other livestock, including mules, donkeys, oxen, sheep, pigs, dogs and birds, along with a short section on apiculture. A two page index follows the text. Although the author's name is unknown, the illustrations were done by Weiditz (1495-1537), a member of an elite group of woodcutters of the German Renaissance, which also included Albrecht Dürer, Hans Holbein, and Weiditz's teacher, Hans Burgkmair. He is known for his illustrations of secular books, particularly Otto Brunfels' acclaimed Herbarum vivae eicones, in which his innovative, realistic depictions of plant life were greatly influential. OCLC locates 3 copies, with only one in America (University of Michigan); Durling, 4600 (1550 ed.); Wellcome, 6603 (1550 ed.).

         Tabu. Nova Asiae Mi.

      Melchior & Gaspar Treschsel 1535 - Melchior & Gaspar Treschsel Lyon 1535 woodcut map with modern hand colouring; image size 30 x 38 cm (incl. title banner) A beautiful example of this early and desirable Ptolemaic map of modern Turkey and the Middle East with Cyprus. There is good detail of place names along the shoreline with the interior limited to a few rivers, mountain ranges, a lake, and a king seated on his throne. Title above the map is in a fancy banner-style cartouche. On verso is Latin text, some very fine architectural woodcut illustrations attributed to Hans Holbein of Basel, and the title "de Mahometo et Turcarum Origine et moribus." - What makes this map rather ‘quirky’ are the contemporary hand written annotations in ink which are confined to the margins. This map is from the atlas ‘Claudii Ptolemaei Alexandrini Geographicae ’, re-issued by Lorenz Fries (c1490-c1531) with reduced maps by Waldseemuller. Born in Alsace, he studied medicine, apparently spending time at the universities of Pavia, Piacenza, Montpellier and Vienna. After completing his education, Fries worked as a physician in several places, before settling in Strassburg, in about 1519. Claudius Ptolemy was a mathematician, astronomer and geographer who worked in Alexandria, then a part of the Roman Empire, in the 2nd century AD. One of the most learned and influential men of his time, his theories dominated both astronomy and geography for nearly 1500 years. His writings were kept alive by Arabic scholars during the Middle Ages and reemerged in Europe during the Renaissance. The birth of printing led to wide dissemination of his great works on astronomy and geography. There were a number of editions of his Geographia beginning in 1477. These early editions contained maps based on his original writings, known as Ptolemaic maps. As geographic knowledge increased with the explorations of Columbus, Magellan, Cabot and others, maps of the New World were added, and maps of the Old World were revised. Ptolemy's Geographia continued to be revised and published by some of the most important cartographers including Martin Waldseemuller, Sebastian Munster, Giacomo Gastaldi, Jodocus Hondius, and Gerard Mercator (whose last edition was published in 1730). fold as issued; 2 small worm holes; paper cream coloured; some spots and soiling in margins; marginal annotations; slight off-set; on verso: colour off-set; o/w exc. cond.

         Ragionamenti della lingua toscana

      Giovanni Farri and fratelli. 8vo (152x102 mm). 439, (5) pp. With the printer's device on the title-page. Recent stiff vellum, lettering-piece on spine, inked title on lower edge. Provenance: on the title-page ownership's inscription of the humanist Alfonso Cambi Importuni (Naples, 1535-1570). Cambi collaborated with Lucantonio Ridolfi to the edition of Petrarch's Canzoniere published in Lyons in 1558; is the dedicatee of Galeazzo Florimonte's Ragionamenti sopra l'Etica di Aristotile (Venice, 1567, see below in this catalogue); was a correspondant of Annibal Caro; figures as an interlocutor in the dialogue Il Rota, ovvero Dialogo delle Imprese by Scipione Ammirato (Naples, 1562) (cf. C. Mutini, Cambi, Alfonso, in: "Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani", vol. 17, 1974, s.v.). Some light foxing, small stain and pen tests on last leaf verso, a fresh and genuine copy. FIRST EDITION. Bernardino Tomitano was a 24-year-old philosopher, when in 1541 he attended the ceremony during which his teacher, the famous scholar Sperone Speroni, was crowned prince of the Accademia degli Infiammati of Padua. In the two days following this event, scholars, academics, and poetry connoisseurs met at Speroni's house to discuss about literature and language. Four years later, in 1545, Tomitano published a detailed account of those literary conversations on poetics and rhetorics in his Ragionamenti della lingua Toscana (cf. M.T. Girardi, Il sapere e le lettere in Bernardino Tomitano, Milan, 1995, pp. 3-5). "The Ragionamenti della lingua toscana of Bernardino Tomitano (1545) represents the first nearly complete "art of poetry' in the present series of Platonic treatises; it also represents the most eclectic and in a sense the most typical studied thus far. If one were to read the three books of the Ragionamenti in reverse order, one would find in the third all the detailed treatment of the more particular aspects of the art, a treatment resting largely on Horace's Ars poetica and on their rhetoricians but deriving certain essential ideas from Aristotle. The second book deals largely with oratory, but even here the application of oratorical principles to poetry is constantly traced and all the examples are taken from poets; once again, the classical rhetoricians provide the distinctions and the rules. But in the first book, where Tomitano wishes to lay the philosophical foundations for all the art of writing, his source his Plato. And it is Plato appealed to on a much broader basis than was done by most of Tomitano's contemporaries. For rather than begin with one of the favorite dicta..., he takes as his starting point Plato's general concept of Ideas. Like the painter, the poet and the orator attempt to represent in the medium of the arts some perfect concept or Idea... If the poet is to succeed as a poet, he must therefore be something of a philosopher so that he may know the truths which he is going to imitate. The relationship of poetry to philosophy is indeed a complicated one. The business of philosophy is the discovery of truth; the business of poetry is the imitation of truth through the medium of fictions. But poetry does not imitate all truth, nor does it serve its ultimate ends in every part of its imitation. Of its two ends, pleasure and utility, it is the latter which involves philosophy. For the utility is both moral and intellectual in character, and it is found in moral and intellectual precepts scattered throughout the work" (B. Weinberg, A History of Literary Criticism in the Italian Renaissance, Chicago, IL, 1961, pp. 264-265). "I Ragionamenti della lingua toscana di Tomitano, [furono] pubblicati nel 1545 a Venezia. I Ragionamenti furono ristampati l'anno successivo, sostanzialmente immutati sesi eccettua l'aggiunta di una cinquantina di pagine contenenti unconfronto tra la retorica di Aristotele e quella di Cicerone. L'opera,come si dirà, sarà poi rimaneggiata molti anni dopo e pubblicatacon il titolo di Quattro libri della lingua thoscana. Si tratta in sostanzadi un trattato in forma dialogica dove si riferiscono i discorsi degliaccademici Infiammati su questioni di poetica, retorica e linguain occasione dell'elezione di Speroni. Stando ai Ragionamenti, ilnuovo principe impresse all'accademia un indirizzo piú marcatamenteumanistico: abolí le lezioni su diritto e teologia, lasciandoin vita solo quelle di filosofia, e focalizzò gli studi sulla poesia involgare, bandendo l'esegesi di testi classici" (M. Colombo, Bernardino Tomitano e i "Quattro libri della lingua thoscana, in: "Momenti del Petrarchismo veneto: cultura volgare e cultura classica tra Feltre e Belluno nei secoli XV-XVI, Atti del convegno di studi, Belluno-Feltre, 15-16 ottobre 2004", P. Pellegrini, ed., Rome, 2005, p. 114; see also A. Daniele, Bernardino Tomitano: dai "Ragionamenti', 1545-1546 ai "Quattro libri della lingua thoscana, in: "Museum Patavinum", 1/1, 1983, pp. 67-85). Tomitano's treatise is also important for the history of music, since he tried hard to forge a link between language and sound, what possibly led to an emergent consciousness of rhetorical issues in music among Venetian musicians of the time (cf. M. Feldman, City Culture and the Madrigal at Venice, Berkeley, CA, 1995, pp. 157-158). Bernardino Tomitano studied philosphy and medicine at the University of Padua, his hometown. In 1539 he was appointed as reader of Aristotle's Organon at the university. From then on until 1563 he always taught, but never achieved to become ordinary professor. He was a member of the Accademia degli Infiammati (cf. A. Daniele, Sperone Speroni, Bernardino Tomitano e l'Accademia degli Infiammati di Padova, in: "Filologia Veneta", 1989, pp. 1-53) and was in close relationship with Sperone Speroni, Pietro Bembo, Jacopo Sadoleto, Paolo Giovio, Bernardo Navagero, Girolamo Fracastoro, and Aldo Manuzio, with whom he shared the same view on poetics and rhetorics. He also wrote on mathematics and cosmography. In 1563 he left Padua and moved to Venice, where he worked as doctor and published the treatise De morbo gallico (cf. M.R. Davi, Bernardino Tomitano filosofo, medico, letterato, 1517-1576, profilo biografico e critico, Trieste, 1995, passim). Edit 16, CNCE39253; Universal STC, 859345..

Annotazioni coeve al recto e al verso della sguardia anteriore di un canonico di St. Gudule (presso Bruxelles ?). Restauri a strappetti marginali ad alcune cc. Sparsi aloni. Buon esemplare nell'insieme. Rara cinquecentina lionese di questo grandioso tentativo (il solo prodotto dalla storiografia umanistica) di storia universale fino al 1504. Nella cronaca non mancano accenni alle nuove scoperte geografiche e a Cristoforo Colombo e ad altri celebri viaggiatori e navigatori (non a caso l'opera fu presto tradotta in lingua potoghese). A concise account of the discoveries made in the first and second voyages of Columbus. Mention is also made of the voyage of Pedro Alonso Nuno.It was writen before the year 1503, at a time when the only printed works treating of the Western World, so far as we know, were the Columbus's letter, Sybellico's second- hand relation, and one or two of the letters of Vespuccius. On that account the Enneades, like, Maffei of Volterra's Commentary, and Bergomas' Chronicle, acquire that kind of interest which pertains to all works relating to this country, and published before the Decades of Peter Martyr, which form, as it were, the basis and material of all subsequent publications on the subject. (Sabin]). Il Sabellico, al secolo Marcantonio Coccio (Vicovaro, 1436 ca.-Venezia, 1505), umanista e storiografo ammirato anche da Erasmo (che negli Adagia cita un proverbio del Sabellico e che, nel Ciceronianus, tesse le lodi di lui come umanista e come retore), studiò a Roma sotto la guida di Pomponio Leto; dal 1475 fu professore di retorica ad Udine e, dal 1484, a Venezia, dove fu pure Custode della Libreria di San Marco.

         Vita et Fabulae [with] Flavii Aviani Fabularum Aesopiarum Liber Unicus.

      Paris Antonio Bonnemere 1535 - 8vo. Cont. ff 120 (printer's error in pagination means f. 119 labelled as 116), pp. [16] index; a few scribbles and small hole on title not affecting text, light annotations (mostly marginal) in 'Vita' section, very slight waterstaining to a few pages, edges slightly discoloured by age, small hole ff. 33-lower board. Blind tooled pigskin, 3 raised bands on spine; crack to leather on upper board, small holes on lower board. Charming old copy of this classic work. The present edition is written entirely in Latin and contains a 44-page biography of the Ancient Greek slave and story teller followed by over 100 of his fables, including favourites such as The Hare and the Tortoise. In addition, it features a commentary by the Italian writer and professor of philology Laurentius Abstemius (c. 1440-1508). Abstemius himself also wrote fables, and would often publish his own work in collections alongside Aesop's in order to suggest that they were of the same calibre. Many of the fables in this work end with their moral clearly spelled out in one or two straightforward sentences under the heading 'Morale.' [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Vergine col Bambino, S. Giovannino e S. Elisabetta

      1535 - Bulino, databile al terzo decennio del XVI secolo, firmato in lastra in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Giulio Romano. Esemplare nel terzo stato di tre, con il lato in luce della culla terminato. Bellissima prova, ricca di toni di lastra, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "stella nel cerchio", rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera riproduce la composizione della cosiddetta Piccola Sacra Famiglia (1518-19), un dipinto conservato al Louvre ed attribuito in passato a Raffaello ora invece assegnato a Giulio Romano o Giovanni Francesco Penni. Tuttavia potrebbe derivare anche da un anonimo disegno a sanguigna conservato a Windsor, sempre attribuito a Giulio. L’incisione rappresenta un ottimo esempio della maestria tecnica del Caraglio, con una serie di segni incrociati che forniscono un forte contrasto tonale. La rarità dei primi stati, con la culla in basso a destra non completata, lascia supporre che il solo stato finale sia il risultato voluto dall’artista. Magnifico esemplare. Engraving, circa 1530, signed at lower left. After Giulio Romano. Example in the third state of three, with the cradle completed. A fine impression, rich of tone, printed on contemporary laid paper with "star in a circle" watermark, trimmed to the platemark, in perfect conditions. The work reproduces the composition of the so-called Little Holy Family (1518-19), a painting in the Louvre and attributed to Raphael in the past but now assigned to Giulio Romano and Giovanni Francesco Penni. However, it could also result from an anonymous drawing stored at Windsor, and attributed to Giulio Romano. The engraving is a good example of technical mastery of Caraglio, with a number of signs crossed that provide a strong tonal contrast. The rarity of the first states, with the cradle at the bottom right is not complete, suggesting that only the final state is the desired result by the artist. A magnific example.

         LIBRO PRIMO DE LA CONQVISTA DEL PERV & PROUINCIA DEL CUZCO DE LE INDIE OCCIDENTALI

      [Colophon: Vinegia (i.e. Venice): Stampato per Stephano da Sabio, 1535. [62] leaves. Small quarto. Later vellum over boards, manuscript title on spine. Corners bumped and lightly worn. Armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Several leaves lightly dampstained. Light scattered soiling. Very good. As one of the "Men of Cajamarca," Francisco de Xerez holds a very special place among writers on the earliest period of Spanish contact with the Inca of Peru: He was there from day one, a member of the very small band of men who left Panama with Pizarro and Almagro to seek fame and fortune in South America. At Cajamarca he participated in the taking of the Inca leader, Atahualpa, the slaughter of his army, and the sharing of the ransom demanded of the Inca nation for the return of their leader. By training a notary public and practiced writer, he was by choice Pizarro's secretary/confidant, the two having been close since at least 1524, when they met in Panama; and when in 1534 he returned to Spain, he took with him his share of the wealth of Atahualpa, a broken leg, and a tale to tell that was significant, stirring, and in fact tellable by no other man. He conceived of his book as being at once a socially and politically useful celebration of Pizarro's deeds and his own, a celebration of the glory of Spain as that was expressing itself in a remote and wondrous New World, and as a true entertainment cast in the tradition of the romance of chivalry; not surprisingly, it was a blockbuster. Xerez's eyewitness account of the conquest of Peru was originally published in Spain in 1534 in Spanish as the VERDADERA RELACIÓN DE LA CONQUISTA DEL PERU Y PROVINCIA DEL CUZCO LLAMADA LA NUEVA CASTILLA. Demand for news of the new, "exotic" kingdom of Peru, which had only been conquered in 1532, was found to be keen not only in Spain but all across Europe, leading to this rapid translation into Italian. Appended to Xerez's account (fols. [43v] to [55r]) is a translation of Miguel de Estete's account of Pizarro's army's journey from Cajamarca to Pachacamac and then to Jauja. Estete was also present at Cajamarca and is said to have been the first Spaniard to lay hands on Atahualpa. Both of these first translations into Italian are from the pen of Domingo de Gaztelu (secretary of Don Lope de Soria, Charles V's ambassador to Venice) and are taken from the second edition of the Spanish-language original. The text is printed in roman type and has a large heraldic woodcut device on the titlepage and a xylographic printer's device on the verso of the last leaf. CHURCH 73. HARRISSE 200. SABIN 105721.

The book also discusses apoplexy, meningitis, and paralysis, and contains Hippocrates' De Capitis Vulneribus in the translation of Marcus Fabius Calvus.

      Venice: Nicolo de Aristotele detto Zoppino, 1535. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio (295 x 190mm). [12], I-CX, (110ff.) Signatures: AA6-BB6; A8-N8; O6. Title printed in red and black with woodcut block border depicting strewn armor and dueling knights with wreathed portrait of Cicero at top and plaques with monogram initials of Roman Emperors Fabius Maximus, Julius Caesar, and Alexander Magnus. 136 woodcut in-text illustrations depicting lives of primitive humans, the famous Vitruvian Man on p. XXII, constellations, rules for perspective, and other mathematical figures and diagrams of architecture. Woodcut historiated chapter initials throughout of repeating portraits. Translated by Benedetto Giovio (1471-1545). Edited by Francesco Lutio Durantino. 19th-century calf with decorative stamps, spine stamped in gilt TRAT DE ARCH, endpapers renewed; (loose in binding, some margins trimmed close, some light worming, at least six early cancelled inscriptions on title, leaf CX with significant excision, otherwise an crisp and clean text block with wonderful woodcut impressions). 19th-century inscription on fly-leaf “Famoza Archi-tectura.” Another 19th-century inscription on front flyleaf, “Presented to the Mercantile Library Association of New York by Philip A Reach ...Consul/ Lisbon Jan. 7 1848.” Sold in 1958 “on removal of Architecture Books from the Library” (pencil note). Rare illustrated Durantino edition of Vitruvius printed in Venice by Zoppino in 1535. This Vitruvius work was first printed in 1521 for Como. As it gained notoriety, another edition in the vernacular Italian was prepared by Giovanni Antonio and Pietro de’ Nicolino da Sabbio in 1524. It incorporated woodcuts from a 1511 Latin edition produced by Giovanni Giocondo in Venice (Tacuino). This Zoppino printing had a newly redesigned title-leaf with an elaborate woodcut border of chivalric battle scenes between Augustus Caesar, Julius Caesar, and Alexander the Great. The 136 in-text woodcuts are an all too interesting miscellany of late-medieval life, nature, and architecture and are characteristic of Vitruvian ideals in regards to proportion, ornament, language, space, place and beauty. The famous figure of “Symmetria” (Vitruvian Man) is present on p. XXII. Both the 1524 and 1535 editions were widely read by an Italian public. Vitruvian principles deeply influenced early Renaissance artists, thinkers, and architects who believed they were rediscovering an ancient discipline which would be the foundation of their culture.

         Contra Hebreos. Requisitioni profundissime, et argomenti sottilissimi del sapiente Hebreo maestro Samuel, per liquali lucidissimamente se vede la fede christiana (a confusione de Hebrei popolo durae cervicis) esser quella laquale hereditar fa la vera terra de promissione, cioe sempiterna gloria

      'Stampata . per Nicolo d'Aristotile detto Zoppino', Vinegia [Venice] 1535 - Small octavo (approximately 145 x 90 mm), [78] pages, with an elaborate woodcut border to the title page. Later (but not modern) vellum decorated in gilt on the spine, with a gilt-bordered leather title-label on the front cover; vellum a little marked and discoloured; title leaf lightly chipped and marked, with two tiny holes, and with an old paper repair to the hinge on the blank verso; some unobtrusive light tidemarks; trifling signs of use and age; overall, a very good copy. First introduced to Europe in the fourteenth century by the Dominican friar and missionary Alfonso Buenhombre, who claimed to have translated it from an earlier Arabic original, this short treatise is now widely accepted to be his work. Part polemic, part apologetics, Rabbi Samuel's epistle expounds the sins of the Jewish race and argues the truth of the Christian religion, taking its sources chiefly from the Old Testament. Its survival in over three hundred manuscripts and at least thirteen incunable editions, in Latin and various vernaculars, attests to its popularity (Ora Limor: 'The Epistle of Rabbi Samuel of Morocco: A Best-Seller in the World of Polemics', in 'Contra Iudaeos: Ancient and Medieval Polemics between Christians and Jews', Limor and Stroumsa, editors, 1996). Nevertheless, this Italian edition, printed in italic type, appears to be quite scarce. The front flyleaf carries the ownership signature 'Nahum Barnet, Melbourne 1891'. Nahum Barnet (1855-1931), architect and journalist, was an active member of Melbourne's Jewish community; not least, he designed the extant Synagogue in Toorak Road, South Yarra (1928-30, 'his last major work'). Isaac Selby later claimed that Barnet 'had designed a building in every street in Melbourne proper' (Australian Dictionary of Biography. While you're at it, read the entry on Selby too!).

      Matteo Cancer ad instantia de li honorabili huomin,, napoli, 1535 - In 4° ant. (20,5 x 14,6). Cc. (294). Stupendo frontespizio allegorico a bordura; firma di appartenenza coeva allo stesso "di Vinc(enz)o Zuccardi". Minimo tarlo a pochi fogli ma buon esemplare con leggere tracce d’uso in legatura moderna piena pelle verde impressa e decorata in stile Romantico primo Ottocento. Prima edizione molto rara di questo celebre dizionario, vera pietra miliare per lo studio della lingua italiana. Pregevole per eleganza tipografica e per il bellissimo frontespizio costituito dall’unione di quattro scomparti, quest’opera è altresì interessante per riportare alcuni modi di dire in uso all’epoca nell’Italia meridionale. Il Falco, letterato e storico di origini napoletane, amico e corrispondente di Bernardo Tasso, del Bembo e di Paolo Manuzio, nell’introduzione afferma che la sua scelta di vocaboli è basata sugli scritti dei più importanti autori, non limitandosi al repertorio trecentesco, ma attingendo alle opere volgari del Quattrocento e dei suoi contemporanei. Addirittura, come affermano PRESA e UBOLDI ne I Rimari italiani, egli « . pur non senza gravi fraintendimenti, numerose incertezze e vistose esuberanze, opera nella struttura del Rimario una rivoluzione che ci par di poter qualificare come copernicana, poiché capovolge di fatto il rapporto fino ad allora istituzionalmente rispettato fra autore e lingua, in quanto toglie la preminenza agli "autori" e la assegna alla "lingua" ».

The map derives from Ptolemy’s Geografia edited by M. Servetus and G.

         Vitellionis ... Peri optikes, id est de natura, ratione, & proiectione radiorum uisus, luminum, colorum atq[ue] formarum, quam uulgo perspectiuam vocant, libri X. . .

      Norimbergæ: Apud Io. Petreium, 1535. FIRST EDITION. Title in red and black with large woodcut, full-page woodcut arms on recto of second leaf, numerous woodcut illustrations throughout text. First 4 numbered leaves (following preliminaries) are in facsimile on old paper. Full blindstamped calf in an antique style. Overall a fine copy. First edition of the earliest treatise on optics written by a European. An extremely rare work, the text of which is derived from the optics of Abu al-Hasan (Alhazen). It contains not only a summary of all that was known on optics to the ancients and to Alhazen, but also some original investigations. Divided into nine books, Witelo first sets forth a number of geometrical theorems providing the mathematical principles required for the optical demonstrations of the remaining books. He details the essential features of optical systems, including the theory of theory of the nature of light and the propagation of light or visible forms. In addition to the nature of radiation, light and color in straight or refracted lines, and the treatment of images in various mirrors, a portion of the book deals with the physiology of vision. Very little is known of Witelo (ca. 1230-ca. 1275) other than he was born in Poland. This book, important as a source of Greco-Arabian theories on optics, had a great deal of influence on future investigators throughout all ages, including Regiomontanus and Da Vinci, Maurolico, Tycho Brahe, Galileo and Descartes. Indeed, Kepler based his entire study of optics upon it.

"He also discussed prognosis, diagnosis and treatment, described the technique of craniotomy and provided detailed illustrations of contemporary neurosurgical instruments."-Norman 186-(1st ed. of 1518). The book also discusses apoplexy, meningitis, and paralysis, and contains Hippocrates' De Capitis Vulneribus in the translation of Marcus Fabius Calvus. "Berengario's book was the most original neurological treatise until then and was not surpassed until the appearance of Ambroise Paré's similar work in 1562, in which Paré expressed his appreciation of his predecessor's efforts and made use of them."-D.S.B., I, p. 618. The two earlier editions, one undated, are virtually identical to each other. A fine copy, complete with the colophon leaf and final blank. ? Garrison-Morton 4850.2-(1st ed. of 1518).

Cicognara 2459., Mortimer, Italian Books 398, vgl. Eines der Hauptwerke della Portas,,das in etlichen Auflagen erschien Die Holzschnitte zeigen meist Vergleiche der Physiognomien von Menschen und Tieren. - Giovan Battista della Porta (1535- 1615 in Neapel) neapolitanischer Arzt, Universalgelehrter und Dramatiker. Durch seine Methodik und relative Neutralität gilt er als einer der ersten Naturwissenschaftler im modernen Sinne. 1558 veröffentlichte er die "Magia naturalis" (in der er unter anderem eines der wenigen existierenden Hexensalbenrezepte überlieferte), die ihm ersten Ruhm brachte. Weiters erwähnt er erstmals ein Wassertrommelgebläse zur Erzeugung eines kontinuierlichen Luftstrahles für eine Schmiedeesse in Nettuno südlich von Rom. Eine von ihm 1560 in Neapel gegründete Gesellschaft zur Erforschung der Natur, die Academia Secretorum Naturae , musste auf Befehl des Papstes aufgelöst werden. Seine grundlegende Schrift über Kryptologie mit dem Titel De furtivis literarum notis (Über die verborgene Bedeutung der Buchstaben), die er 1563 veröffentlichte, machte ihn endgültig berühmt. Um 1570 herum entwickelt er die Camera obscura weiter, einen frühen Vorläufer der Fotokamera.Die jeweils 1583 bzw. 1584 veröffentlichten Pomarium (über Obstanbau) sowie Olivetum (über Olivenanbau) flossen ein in sein umfassenderes Werk über Agrikultur, Villae von 1592. Zuvor jedoch, 1586, erschien sein zweites Hauptwerk, ein medizinisches Werk unter dem Titel De humana physiognomia, 1588 gefolgt von einem Werk über die Physionomie der Pflanzen, "Phytognomica". Hier versuchte er, vom Aussehen und dem Lebenslauf der Pflanzen auf ihre Wirkung zu schließen. So führte er aus, dass Kräuter mit gelbem Saft die Gelbsucht heilen könnten, solche mit rauhen Oberflächen Hautkrankheiten. Wegen seiner Beschäftigung mit Magie und Physionomie musste er sich 1592 vor der Inquisition verantworten, das Verfahren blieb aber für ihn folgenlos. In den folgenden Jahren zog er sich aber vorsichtshalber von den Wissenschaften zurück und wandte sich der dramatischen Literatur zu. Seine Komödie La Trappolaria, eines von vielen erfolgreichen dramatischen Werken, erschien 1596 in Bergamo.
