         De le Lettere di M. Pietro Aretino. Libro primo

      Venice, Francesco Marcolini, 1538 (January). The first printed collection of letters by a living person in the volgare, a major event in the history of the Italian language. It inspired a flood of lettere volgare, both the collected letters of individuals and anthologies, perhaps the most distinctive product of Italian literary life in the mid-Cinquecento. This first edition has been pursued by collectors since the eighteenth century and is widely recognised now as a rare book. Six other copies are known, of which two only (London and Munich) are complete. Our copy lacks eleven leaves, including the title and final leaf, both of which were adorned with a woodcut portrait of Aretino set within an architectural frame. Aretino, Pietro Arezzo 1492 - 1556 Venice De le Lettere di M. Pietro Aretino. Libro primo. Venice, Francesco Marcolini, 1538 (January) folio (265 × 190 mm), (95) of (106) ff., signed A-Z 4 AA-CC 4 ♠2 and foliated [1]-104 (2), lacking eleven leaves (A1, B3, D1, Y2-Y3, CC1-CC4 ♠1-♠2, see discussion below). paper cardinal's hat surmounted by a cross (like Briquet 3416). 1 provenance Francesco Testa (1761-1846) -- Leonardo Trissino (1780-1841), his inscriptions on endleaves, inclu­ding Leonardo Trissino Vicenza 10 gennaro 1817 Dono di Francesco Testa 2 -- Mario Lanfranchi, London -- Bloomsbury Auctions, 'Libri, Autografi e Stampe', Rome, 10 December 2008, lot 35 Apart from missing leaves and defects to binding, in good state of preservation. binding 18th-century Italian vellum. The first printed collection of letters by a living person in the volgare, a major event in the history of the Italian language. It inspired a flood of lettere volgare, both the collected letters of individuals and anthologies, perhaps the most distinctive product of Italian literary life in the mid-Cinquecento. 3 Aretino appears to have conceived the idea of pub­lishing a collection of his letters in the spring of 1537 and it is likely that printing started in Septem­ber and was completed in late December 1537; 4 the colophon in all known copies of the edition reads 'Impresso in Vinetia: per Francesco Marcolini da Forlì apresso a la Chiesa de la Terneta, Nel anno del Signore. mdxxxviii. Il mese di Genaro' (M1). 5 The book was an immediate success: within months, five editions had been produced by other publishers (in defiance of Marcolini's copyright), and another four such editions were based on a new edition issued by Marcolini in September 1538, incorporating twenty-five new letters (M2). 6 In 1542, a second volume was published by Marcolini. This first edition has been pursued by collectors since the eighteenth century and is widely recog­nised now as a rare book. 7 Six copies are known, of which two only (London and Munich) are complete ● Florence, Biblioteca nazionale centrale, B.R.120 8 ● Forlì, Biblioteca comunale 'Aurelio Saffi', Fondo Piancastelli Marcolini 20 9 ● Hamburg, Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek, Handschriftenab­teilung B/8277 10 ● London, British Library, 88.h.14 ● Munich, Bayerische Staatsbib­liothek, 2.

Aretinus acerrimus virtutum et vitiorum demonstrator | Veritas odium parit. The Lettere are a fundamental source of information about Aretino himself and his wide circle of friends and acquaintances, including many artists. The 'Libro Primo' contains many letters of great art historical interest, notably those addressed 'Al Divino Michelagnolo' (Letter 193), 16 to Jacopo Sansovino (incorporating a list of that artist's major works, Letter 237), Niccolò Pericoli detto Tribolo (including a description of Titian's lost Death of St Peter Martyr, Letter 213), Titian (Letter 223), 17 and Giorgio Vasari (Letters 201, 313). Fortunately, with the exception of the second letter to Vasari (Letter 313), all these famous letters are present in our incomplete copy. references Luigi Servolini, Supplemento agli Annali della tipografia veneziana di Francesco Marcolini compi­lati da Scipione Casali (Bologna 1958), p.10 no. 5; Le edizioni italiane del xvi secolo: Censimento nazionale (Rome 1990), A-2358 1.

Housed in a modern green cloth slipcase. Illustrated with Treschel device on the title page and 92 woodcuts by Hans Lützelberger and others after Holbein. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE (with Judith rather than Job depicted on I2) of Holbein's influential illustrations for the Old Testament. With this publication "Bible illustration at Lyons changed significantly" (Mortimer). The set was re-used in Bibles by the same publishers and copied widely at Paris, Zurich, Antwerp, and elsewhere. The first four smaller blocks are from Holbein's Dance of Death series, published the same year; the remaining blocks are of Old Testament subjects. Holbein showed supreme skill at placing grand spiritual narrative within a compact domestic setting, thereby challenging the popularity of classical themes. The preface by François Frellon on the title page verso urges the reader to reject the images of goddesses such as Venus and Diana in favor of the "sacrosanctas Icones."

Ambientata a Cremona, la commedia narra le vicende di un mago impostore allo scopo di dileggiare i costumi popolari e le tradizioni legate ai tarocchi. Nel tratteggiare il personaggio Ariosto ricorre a fonti moderne come Ruffo nella Calandria, commedia del cardinale Bernardo Dovizi oppure Callimaco, il finto medico della Mandragola di Machiavelli. Edizione assai rara. Cfr. Iccu e, per altre edizioni, Gamba, 70. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Apart from the intrinsic value of the work, its attempts to solve certain problems in astronomical and terrestrial physics are interesting, as are the studies on refraction. In the course of the latter Fracastoro points out the apparent enlargement and approach of celestial objects (as well as the moon) observed through two superimposed lenses, analogous to the appearance of a body immersed in water, which varies exactly according to the quantity and density of the water itself" (D.S.B.

Como editor, Schabler produjo la mayoría de su catálogo con Johann Bebel, a quien, en 1523, apenas abrió la imprenta, encargó la impresión de la tercera de las versiones revisadas por Erasmo (la de 1522) del Nuevo testamento en griego. Para la portada encargó a Urs Graf (ca. 1485-ca. 1528) la talla de cuatro tacos con el icono de cada uno de los cuatro evangelistas y, como introducción, escogió disponer la invitación a que se hiciese una lectura individual de las Sagradas Escrituras escrita por el téologo de la Reforma, Johann Oekolampad, a su vez asilado en Basilea desde 1522. El Tes Kaines diathekes hapanta así impreso se publicó en 1524, con reimpresiones del propio Bebel en 1531 y 1535. En ese último año, Thomas Platter adquirió la ciudadanía de Basilea, donde se había instalado cuatro años antes tras abandonar Zurich a la muerte de Zwingli -de quien había sido una especie de secretario-. En Basilea estuvo trabajando simultáneamente como profesor en el Pedagogium (gracias a la intercesión de Oekolampad) y como corrector de pruebas de imprenta para Herbagius). Con la ciudadanía en la mano y, ¡porque había visto que los impresores ganaban dinero!(1), se asoció con Balthasar Ruch (Balthasar Lasius), Ruprecht Winter y Oporinus (Jean Herbst) y pusieron en marcha una imprenta con la prensa y tipos que le compraron cuando cerró la suya a Cratander (quien, a su vez, había protegido a Oekolampad cuando este se asiló en Basilea). De ese taller salieron, entre otras, obras de Vives, Galeno y Aristóteles, además de la primera edición de la Chrsitianae religionis Institutio de Calvino y la correspondencia entre Zwingli y Oekolampad. A finales de 1537, poco antes de que la peste llegase a la ciudad, Platter, tras una pelea con Lasius, dejó la sociedad. Al separarse, se repartieron los materiales (rechazando una oferta de Bebel, que quería comprarles la imprenta) y Platter, contrayendo una gran deuda, adquirió un par de casas, instaló su propia imprenta en una de ellas y comenzó a imprimir por encargo: 'Plusieurs personnes me donnèrent de l'ouvrage, entre autres messire Wattensch [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      (Strassburg, Sigmund Bund), 1538.. 26 Bll. Alter Umschlag. 4°. VD 16 ZV 3980. - Valentin Crautwald (latinisiert Valentinus Cratoaldus; um 1490 unsicher in Krautenwalde im Fürstentum Neisse, gest. 5. September 1545 in Liegnitz) war ein deutscher Theologe und Humanist. In Breslau lernte Crautwald den von Bischof Johannes V. Thurzo geförderten Humanistenkreis kennen, dem u. a. Caspar Ursinus Velius und Johann Heß angehörten. Wie Johann Heß, dem er vermutlich schon während des Studiums in Krakau begegnet war, wandte sich auch Crautwald schon bald der Lehre der Reformation zu und konvertierte vermutlich nach dem Tod des Bischofs Thurzo 1520. In seinem Denken wurde er auch von Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon und Erasmus von Rotterdam beeinflusst, mit denen er korrespondierte. Zahlreiche Werke des Erasmus befanden sich in Crautwalds Bibliothek. ---- Einige Quellen schreiben die Schrift allerdings auch Caspar Schwenckfeld zu, bzw. geben ihn als Herausgeber und Beträger an. Die monogrammierte Autorenangabe ("V. C. S.") auf dem Titel lässt hinsichtlich dessen Raum für Spekulationen. - Knapp beschnitten, minimal fleckig.

         Il peregrino.

      Pietro di Nicolini da Sabbio, 1538. "Nuovamente ristampato, e con somma diligenza corretto, et alla sua pristina integrita ridotto": an uncommon early edition of Caviceo's best-selling, often translated, and widely influential romance. The author had a complicated life which included dropping out of law school shortly before he could be expelled, becoming a court historian and diplomat in Parma, being banished from that city for seducing a nun (and possibly more than one), voyaging in the Middle East and India, and embroiling himself in various political intrigues before working his way to the post of Vicar General in cities including Rimini, Ravenna, and Florence. His classically inspired novel, first published in 1508 and dedicated to Lucrezia Borgia, is a romance in which Peregrino tells the ghost of Boccaccio all about his globe-spanning quest to satisfy his passion for the fair Genevera -- with the plot incorporating the author's own travel experiences. In addition to the woodcut architectural border on the title-page (previously used in the printer's 1536 edition of Boccaccio's Laberinto), the text is decorated with one large and two small woodcut illustrations, the large cut showing our lovelorn hero tormented by two satyrs playing fantastical string and wind instruments, under the banner "Ancora spero solver me."

Contemporary richly gold-tooled red morocco, with an elaborate arabesque central ornament in a triple panel design, crowned ornaments, flowers, acorns and stars, richly gold-tooled turn-ins, dark green title label, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (so-called "Bird's Head Bindery", Amsterdam).

      Italian Union Catalogue (1 copy); STCN (1 copy); for the binding: Storm van Leeuwen, Dutch decorated bookbinding III, p. 500, 249 (this copy) and I, pp. 436-451. Rare and finely produced edition of Giovanni Battista Guarini's (1538-1612) famous pastoral drama Il Pastor Fido , here of special interest for its fine binding by the so-called "Bird's Head Bindery", Amsterdam. The design is exceptionally rich but light for a Dutch binding from the period. The spine compartments show a charming lozenge with the head of a girl carrying a basket of flowers and the outer frame on the sides shows birds among leafy sprays. The four corners on each board show a fine carnation (t. 28). This Amsterdam bindery probably started its activities ca. 1728 with work for the book collector Gosuinus Uilenbroek (1658-1714). Storm van Leeuwen notes that "the Bird's Head Bindery made many presentation bindings that were definitely or probably commissioned by publishers." The "richness of execution and the Amsterdam publisher" of the present work "indicate that it may have been a presentation copy" (Storm van Leeuwen).In very good condition with the binding slightly rubbed, corners slightly bumped, scratch across lower part of front board. A pastoral drama in an exceptional binding.

      Giovanni Andrea Vavassore detto Guadagnino. 1538 - Libro nel qual si tratta del parto de l' huomo e de tutte quelle cose che cerca (!) esso parto accadeno e delle infermità che pòno accadere a i fanciulli co' tutti i suoi rimedi posti particolarmente co' gran diligenza di latino nella volgar lingua tradotto, e stampato. (Colophon:) ROESSLIN, Eucharius senior (d. 1526). In Vinegia per Giovanni Andrea Vavassore detto Guadagnino. Nello anno della humana salute, 1538. In-8°. piena pelle coeva con impressioni a secco sui piani. (64) ff. Frontespizio stampato in rosso e nero con una grande silografia centrale raffigurante una scena di parto; il testo è illustrato da 20 figure incise in legno che illustrano le diverse posizioni del feto nell' utero, due gemelli, un neonato mostruoso con due teste, una sedia per ostetricia, ecc. Bell' esemplare di questo piccolo manuale per levatrici che è assolutamente introvabile in buono stato di conservazione. Prima ed unica edizione italiana del famoso Rosengarten basata sull' edizione in latino del 1536 pubblicata da Bernardino Bindoni. Quantunque questo celebrato libretto sia di grande rarità in ogni edizione, questa traduzione in volgare è irreperibile. Essa non è registrata nelle principali bibliografie specializzate e manca alle maggiori biblioteche mediche, comprese la National Library of Medicine, Bethesda, la Wellcome Historical Medical Libray e la Hellman Collection of early obstetrical books. Una copia esiste nella Library of Congress ed una seconda nella Bibliotetheca Walleriana. Quest' importante trattatello di ostetricia ebbe un' enorme influenza nelle pratiche delle levatrici e dei chirurghi del suo tempo. Il gran numero di ristampe dell' edizione tedesca chiamata Rosengarten, pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1513, e il prodigioso numero di traduzioni in parecchie lingue sotto diversi titoli testimoniano il successo e la popolarità di un testo comprensibile anche a coloro che non conoscevano il latino. Per quasi due secoli esso servì come manuale pratico di ostetricia in tutt' Europa. Eucharius Rosslin fu medico insigne nelle città di Worms e Francoforte. "The significance of the Rosengarten is not due to its being the first printed obstetrical work, but rather to the fact that its text and illustrations resumed a tradition, broken for almost fifteen hundred years. Rosslin established the necessity for thorough instruction of midwives. In his versified preface he censured the wretched condition of the current obstetrics, and the ignorance, carelessness, and superstition of the midwives, who brought about unnecessary deats of numberless newborn. The infant mortality bluntly labelled murder, for which the guilty ones deserved to be buried alive, or broken on the wheel, instaed of being allowed to receive an honorarium for services rendered. In his book, which he wrote at the order of the Duchess Katherine of Brunswick, he attempted to eliminate, or at least mitigate, these evils." (Hellman, Early obstetrical books, pp. 1-6).

         De vena sectione [.] in pleuritide liber

      Lyon, Sébastien Gryphe 1538 - In-8 de 189 et (3) pages ; vélin souple de l’époque composé de deux pièces de peau, nerfs apparents aux charnières, traces d’attaches. Très rare édition définitive, de beaucoup augmentée et en grande partie originale, du traité de Corti sur la saignée et son utilité dans le traitement de diverses maladies, en particulier de la pleurésie. Corti publia à Lyon chez Antoine Blanchard en 1532 un premier court texte de 44 feuillets intitulé Questio de pleuritide excellentissime artium medicine, puis en 1534 à Venise un second court ouvrage de 80 pages sous le nouveau titre Questio de phlobotomia in pleuresi. Ex Hippocratis, & Galeni sententia. Le texte fortement augmenté de 1538 s’ouvre sur une dédicace, datée de juin 1538, au Cardinal Guido Ascanio Sforza. Célèbre pour son commentaire approfondi sur l’Anatomia de Mondino en 1550, Matteo Corti (1475-1542), médecin de Clément VII et Côme de Medicis, l’est peut-être plus encore pour avoir été en partie à l’origine de la célèbre lettre de Vésale sur les veines et la saignée parue en 1539. Corti et Vésale se rencontrent à Bologne quelques mois avant la parution de la lettre et s’engagent dans une discussion sur la composition et la structure des veines qui entachera leur relation pour toujours. Vésale dit avoir vu à cette occasion les trois éditions du traité de Corti ; il vit par conséquent cette édition de 1538, tout juste parue. Exemplaire annoté à l’époque, vraisemblablement par un médecin étudiant les humeurs et la mélancolie. Sur la dernière garde, d’une autre main plus tardive, en français, une recette contre la mélancolie à base d’aposème (hydromel). Précieux recueil d’imprimeur : le premier propriétaire fit le choix de réunir au texte de Corti la première édition collective du médecin Prospero Calano comprenant sa paraphrase sur Galien, qui paraît pour la première fois, et ses six textes sur la bile noire, les palpitations, et la dépression. Est relié à la suite CALANO (Prospero), Paraphrasis in librum galeni de inaequali intemperie, Lyon, Gryphe, 1538 ; in-8 de 287 et (1) pages. Bel exemplaire en condition d’origine.

XXXVIII]. causaque & vires rerum ita explicatae, ut confidamus non solum oeconomiae studioso, & medico, verumetiam philosopho aliquid hinc accessurum.

A very good copy of a famous book on farming. Pietro de' Crescenzi (circa 1230/35-circa 1320) was an Italian jurist from Bologna, now known as a writer on agriculture. Educated at the University of Bologna in logic, medicine, the natural sciences and law, Crescenzi practised as a lawyer and judge from about 1269 until 1299. After retiring to his villa, the Villa Olmo outside the walls of Bologna, he wrote this agricultural treatise based largely on classical and medieval sources, as well as his own experience as a landowner. After circulating in numerous manuscript copies, Crescenzi's treatise became the first printed modern text on agriculture when it was published in Augsburg by Johann Schüssler in 1471. A very popular work, some 57 editions in Latin, Italian, French, and German appeared during the following century. (Wikipedia). The author deals with all aspects of agriculture and farming including arboriculture for food and medicine, horticulture for the same, animal husbandry and bee keeping, hunting with dogs and hawks, fishing and fishponds, siting and layout of a manor, botanical properties of plants, monthly tasks, vines and wine making.
