         Tutte le opere del Bernia in terza rima, nuovamente con somma diligentia stampate.

      [Venice?: s.n.], 1540. 8vo (15.1 cm, 6"). 168 ff. Italian translator Berni (1497/8–1535) was so good at writing serio-comic and satirical poetry with double meanings that the style took on his name. Written in terza rima, the present early "Bernesque" collection showcases his aesthetic by gathering his work with that of three of his peers. Donadoni notes Berni's "poems deal with the most futile, most cunningly indecent, or the most paradoxical themes," and these examples are no exception — they cover a variety of topics including Pope Adriano and Aristotle (History of Italian Literature, I, 240). Court official Mauro (1490–1536), bishop Della Casa (1503–56), and apostolic abbreviator Bini (1484–1556) were all friends of Berni and here imitate his poetry, although none of them comments on a pope.    The text is neatly printed in single columns and split into three different parts with a sectional title-page for each, the latter two reading "Tutte le terze rime del Mauro, nuouamente raccolte e stampate" and "Le ter'ze rime de messer Giouanni dalla casa, di messer Bino et d'altri."    Though several editions were printed in a short period of time in the 16th century (1538, 1540, 1542, 1545), extant copies are few and far between. Searches of WorldCat, COPAC, and the NUC reveal => only one holding of this edition in a U.S. institution (Penn).    Evidence of Readership: An early owner has added a handful of inked words and marks on two pages; a more recent owner has penciled extensive notes on several endpapers, supplied page numbers where lacking, marked several passages with arrows or bars, and written a marginal word.    Provenance: Title-page marked with initials "G.D.S.R." in ink; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.    EDIT16 seems to have based its entry on an incomplete copy, for it gives the foliation as 267 [i.e., 167], and while folio 167 is misnumbered in this copy, there is also a folio 168 that is correctly numbered.         EDIT16 CNCE 5538; Adams B753; not in Gamba, Serie dei testi di lingua. Recent cream calf, spine with two dark red leather labels, new endpapers; light scratching. Provenance and readership evidence as above. Light dust-soiling, staining, or spotting mostly in margins; just under four gatherings with light marginal waterstaining. => A desirable representative of the burlesque poetry genre.

      Berlin, (Johann Weiss), 1540. 4to. Bound - presumably in 1933, for Hitler, when he was given it as a present - as a pastiche in a full pigskin over wood, profusely blindtooled with rolls and stamps in a perfect way imitating a typical contemporary German binding. Raised bands and blindtooled compartments. Double sewn headbands. With brass clasps and catches. Handwritten title on front edge. All leaves unnumbered. 68 (last blank),124,94 leaves. 3 large coat of arms of Markgraf von Brandenburg (on the two title-pages and on verso of the second) and one bischopric. Some large woodcut initials. The last part partly printed in red and black and many leaves with musical notes. The first part with a faint dampstain in inner lower margins, decreasing and with some headlines in old hand added in upper margins. A few contemporary underlinings and notes in the second part. Title-page to the second part with a hole in the paper in lower margin, no loss of letters. Some annotations on the title-pages. On the first title-page and on one of the last leaves a contemporary owners name: "Johannes Køppring". Internally clean and fine.On front free endpaper a printed linen-label (47 x 85 mm) "Privateigentum des Führers/ Nr.", under this is typed (after "Nr.") "556/27 - 1933 - Geschenk der Stadtbibliothek/ Lübeck dem Kanzler/ Adolf Hitler". As Hitler became Reichkanzler in 1933, this could indicate that he received the book as a gift when he was installed as Chancellor. In upper compartment the booknumber 556 is repeated in black letterpress. At the top of the number a monogram "GL", also in black. ¶ The extremely scarce first edition of the first Church Ordinance for Mark Brandenburg and is is also the FIRST BOOK PRINTED IN BERLIN. The printer Johann Weiss was called by the Marggraf to Berlin in 1539 to found the first bookpress here, and he received his privilege in 1540: "Geben mit unserm Secret besiegelt zu Coln an der Sprew Dinstag nach Jubilate, Im funffzehnhundersten und vierzigsten Jahr" (Begnadung und Befreyhung des Druckers, folio 1).An the library of Adolf Hitler: The first description of his private collection was published in 1942. Hitler's private books that were kept in the Reich Chancellery in Berlin were confiscated by the Soviets and sent to Moscow. Books in Munich and Berchtesgaden (as well as Hitler's Globe from Berchtesgaden) were taken as war booty by individual American soldiers. 3,000 were later discovered in a Berchtesgaden salt mine, and they were taken by the Library of Congress. As many books from Hitler's three locations were looted by American and Russian servicemen and soldiers in the vicissitudes of the destruction of the Third Reich, it is impossible to trace the offered item, but as it obviously is one of the most scarce and valuable books from Hitler's library, it is probably removed from the Reich Kanzellei in Berlin. "According to Beierl (Florian Beierl, the head of the Archive for the Contemporary History of the Obersalzberg, in Berchtesgaden), Hitler's Berghof experienced successive waves of looters: first local residents, then French and American soldiers, and eventually members of the U.S. Senate. Beierl showed me archival film footage (taken by the legendary World War II photographer Walter Rosenblum) of a delegation of American senators - Burton Wheeler, Homer Capehart, and Ernest McFarland - emerging from the Berghof ruins with books under their arms. "I doubt if they were taking them to the Library of Congress," Beierl said." (Timothy W. Ryback - see his "Hitler's forgotten Library" - www.Theatlantic.com).Brunet III, 666 and IX,179-80. - Graesse IV,20.

         Aristotelis, ac philosophorum medicorumque complurium Problemata, ad varias quaestiones cognoscendas admodum digna & ad naturalem philosophiam discutiendam, maxime spectantia. Marci Antonii Zimarae Sanctipetrinatis Problemata his addita, una cum trecentis Aristotelis et Averrois Propositionibus, suis in locis insertis. Omnia iam tertiò edita. Cum privilegio.

      Basel, (Basileae), (R. Winter), n.d. (ca. 1540) Small 8vo. 126,(2 blank) p. 20th century brown morocco 15 cm 'A Pseudo-Aristotelian text which offered its readers of all levels the satisfation of a causal understanding of daily phenomena' (Ref: VD16 P 4881; Not in USTC) (Details: Tasteful brown morocco, boards with a blind fillet border. The name of Aristotle gilt on the back. The edges of the bookblock are also gilt. The 'Problematum liber unus' by Marcus Antonius Zimara (filling 55 pages) which the title calls for, is unfortunately lacking at the end of this book. Nevertheless this is a remarkably fresh copy in a tasteful binding) (Condition: A faint and small waterstain at the right margin of the title, and the lower margin of the last leaf) (Note: 'The Aristotelian corpus not only established for some 2 millenia the definitions and standards for many branches in the natural sciences, but also founded a genre that respected neither the disciplinary boundaries nor the systematic presentations for which Aristotle is famous'. So, for instance, Aristotle's 'Problemata', a work composed in question-and-answer format, spawned a vigorous tradition of imitations, promising 'authorative philosophical, that is, causal, understanding, made pleasant through the variety and familiarity of the phenomena they explained'. (Ann Blair, 'The Problemata as a natural philosophical genre', in 'Natural Particulars: Nature and the Disciplines in Renaissance Europe', edited by A. Grafton & N. Siraisi, Cambridge MA, MIT, 1999, p. 170) Blair distinguishes in the Renaissance concerning the Problemata 'a high' or learned, and a 'low', and more popular career, ranging from erudite folio editions with commentary, to inexpensive editions of Problems of more recent composition. 'This eminently versatile genre offered its readers of all levels the satisfation of a causal understanding of daily phenomena and the pleasure of a varied accumulation of natural philosophical tidbits'. (Idem, p. 172). This Basle edition forms part of the low career of the Problemata tradition. It is a 'collection of problems first composed anonymously in Latin in the thirteenth or fourteenth century, probably in the German area; it is extant in some twenty medieval manuscripts and over one hundred printed edtions through the modern early period. (...) It uses the classic form to discuss largely medical topics, and appropriates the very same title as 'real' 'Problemata Aristotelis'. (Idem, p. 181) So this collection bears only a very vague relation to what we consider to be Aristotle's 'Problemata'. It is distinguished from Aristotle's work by the incipit 'Omnes homines' (naturaliter scire desiderant). The low tradition is with its ca. 250 questions also much shorter than the learned one, which numbers ca. 900 questions. Later on the low tradition received accretions of various kinds in the same strain, works of modern authors such as Marco Antonio Zimara. This Problemata text of the low tradition was incredibly popular in the 16th century. It is, as the title suggests, a collection of all kinds of problems and petty facts on biology, natural history and medicin. The sources are e.g. Galenus, Hippocrates, Boethius, Albertus Magnus et alii, including of course Aristotle, who's works seems to be the main source. The arrangement is the same as in Aristotle's Problemata, a question is asked (dioti/quaeritur/why), and an answer (ê hoti/respondetur/it is because) is given. The problems are on hair (e.g. 'ut dicit Albertus (Magnus), si pilus mulieris menstruosae ponatur sub fimo, ex illo generatur serpens venenosus', p. 7), on the head, the eyes, the nose, ears, mouth, teeth, tongue, palatum, neck, arms, hands, nails, breast, mammae, the heart, stomach, blood, urine, fur, spleen, intercourse, sperm, conception, children, etc. etc. In the early modern period many translations and adaptations of the low tradition were published, no doubt because of the prominence of questions about sex. 'Conception, birth, menstruation and lactation, gender differences of all kinds are one of the prime emphases of the 'Omnes homines' editions'. (Idem, p. 187) The high tradition of Aristotle's Problemata did finally decline in the 17th century, as the genre was gradually undermined by scepticism and the scientific revolution of that age. But the 'Omnes homines' editions continued to appear for another half century. 'By the late 17th century what had once been a respectable medieval compilation had moved increasingly down the market, most noticeably in German and English versions'. (Idem, p. 187) The vernacular editions of the Questions and Answers were bound with 'farmer's almanacs and home medical guides'. (Idem, ibidem) § We could not find out on which earlier edition this third edition (Omnia iam tertio edita) that was produced by Robertus Winter, was based. At any rate, it seems the earliest appearance of this title. We found no earlier one. Winter produced another edition in 1544. The book seems to be rare. We found only a few copies in KVK, and none in Rare Book Hub, formerly Americana Exchange) (Collation: a-h8, (leaf h8 blank) (Photographs on request)

         Tavola della oriental regione dell' Asia, che comprende l'estreme terre, & regni di quella

      "Bell'esempalre di questa prima carta stampata dell'Asia, di Sebastian Muenster, dalla edizione del 1558 della ""Cosmographia"" di Muenster. La mappa mostra l'Asia dal Mar Caspio e dal Golfo Persico al Pacifico. L'Oceano Pacifico mostra un arcipelago di 7448 isole, un precursore per una migliore comprensione dell'Asia sudorientale, che è in gran parte non riconoscibile, anche se Giava, il Borneo, le Moluche e diverse altre isole sono sono correttamente denominate. La mappa non include Giappone, che appare sulla mappa dell'America dello stesso autore. Anche la costa nordorientale dell'Asia è omessa. La mappa è apparsa per la prima volta nell'edizione 1540 della ""Geographia"" di Muenster. Anche se in gran parte basata sul lavoro di Tolomeo, la mappa incorpora alcune delle più recenti scoperte portoghesi. I contorni del subcontinente indiano, tra i fiumi Indo e Gange, sono ora in una forma più riconoscibile, con ""Zaylon"" (Sri Lanka) correttamente mostrato come un'isola. L'avamposto portoghese di Goa e Calcutta, il primo luogo dove sbarcò Vasco da Gama nel 1497, sono raffigurati. Ad est ""Taprobana"" è anche disegnato come pure ""Sumatra"". È rappresentata anche ""Moloca"", centro del commercio dell'isola spezia e l'oggetto di notevoli conflitti tra Spagna e Portogallo. La risoluzione della controversia fu lo scopo ufficiale dell'epico viaggio di Magellano. Il trattamento di ""Cathay"" (Cina) è coerente con gli scritti di Marco Polo e di altri viaggiatori veneziani. Silografia, con margini larghi, in ottime condizioni." "Nice example of this first printed map of the Asia, by Sebastian Munster, from the 1558 edition of Munster's Cosmographia. The map shows Asia from the Caspian Sea and Persian Gulf to the Pacific. The Pacific Ocean shows an archipelago of 7448 islands, a forerunner to the better understanding of Southeast Asia, which is largely unrecognizeable, although Java Minor and Major, Porne (Borneo), Moluca and several other islands are named. The map does not include Japan, which appears on the map of America. The northeastern coast of Asia is also omitted. The map also includes a large sea monster and mermaid type creature. The map first appeared in the 1540 edition of Munster's Geographia, published in 1540. Although largely based on Ptolemy's work, the map incorporates some of the more recent Portuguese discoveries. The outlines of the Indian subcontinent, between the Indus and the Ganges rivers are now in a more recognizable form, with ""Zaylon"" (Sri Lanka) correctly shown as an island. The Portuguese outpost sof Goa and Calicut, the first place where Vasco da Gama landed in 1497, are depicted. Further to the east ""Taprobana"" is also designated as ""Sumatra."". The Portugese trading port of ""Malaqua"" is shown. Java is depicted as two separate islands. ""Moloca,"" center of the spice island trade and the object of considerable conflict between Spain and Portugal is shown. The resolution of the dispute was the official purpose of Magellan's epic circumnavigation. The treatment of ""Cathay"" (China) is consistent with the writings of Marco Polo and other Venetian travellers. Woodcut, with wide margins, very good condition."

         Tabula Asiae VII

      Artist: Ptolemy/Münster Sebastian Claudius ca ; issued in: Basle; date: ca1540 - - technic: Woodcut; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Restored tear at the center; - size (in cm): 34 x 25,5; - description: Map shows the Caspian sea and a part of Asia minor; - vita of the artist: Sebastian Münster (1488 ? 1552) belongs tot he very important Comographers oft he Renaicance. He issued his first famous Cosmographia in1544 with 24 double paged maps with German description of the world.It had numerous editions in different languages including Latin, French, Italian, English, and Czech. The last German edition was published in 1628, long after his death. The Cosmographia was one of the most successful and popular books of the 16th century. It passed through 24 editions in 100 years. This success was due to the notable woodcuts ,some by Hans Holbein the Younger, Urs Graf, Hans Rudolph Deutsch, and David Kandel. It was most important in reviving geography in 16th-century Europe.His first geographic works were Germania descriptio (1530) and Mappa Europae (1536). In 1540 he published a Latin edition of Ptolemy's Geographia with illustrations. The 1550 edition contains cities, portraits, and costumes. These editions, printed in Germany, are the most valued of the Cosmographias. Claudius Ptolemy (arround 100- 160 a.C.) Geographia, gives a list of geographic coordinates of spherical longitude and latitude of almost ten thousand point locations on the earth surface, as they were known at his times. The list is organized in Tabulae which cor- respond to specific regions of the three known continents at that time, Africa, Asia and Europe. Research on Ptolemy?s Geographia has started at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in the eighties, focused mainly, but not exclusively, on data re- lated to territories which are now under the sovereignty of the modern Greek state. The World of Ptolemy is classified in Regions, since each Chapter is referred to one of them, giving by this way the concept of Atlas as it is understood today.

      (München, Andreas Schobser, 1540). - 4°, circa 22 x 16,8 cm. 24 Blatt, Titel mit grosser Initiale A Pergament-Umschlag des 19. Jh. unter Verwendung eines Antiphonar-Manuskripts um 1500 "VD16 V 1210; STC, Suppl. 65 (Andreas Schobser, Munich, ca. 1545?); nicht bei Adams. Seltene deutsche Ausgabe des "Mirabile opusculum de fine mundi", in älteren Bibliographien noch als Augsburger Druck bezeichnet (auch in der Druckversion des VD 16; online korrigiert). Das Werk erschien im Druck erstmals 1481 in Nürnberg, auch deutsche Übersetzungen wurden bald publiziert, die vorliegende ist jedoch eine Neuübersetzung. Das Werk zitiert zwar den Dominikaner Vinzenz Ferrer aus Valencia (1350-1419), ist ihm jedoch wohl nur untergeschoben und wird heute als ein krichenpolitischer Traktat eines Anhängers von Gegenpapst Benedict XIII interpretiert. Es gibt vor eine Predigt über Daniel 2-4 zu sein, wobei dann jedoch Kaiser Sigismund mit Nebukadnezar gleichgesetzt und das Konzil von Konstanz angegriffen werden. Als Retter der Kirche werde Benedikt XIII erscheinen etc. (vgl. Ph. Stenzig: "Das 'Mirabile opusculum de fine mundi': Eine politische Prophezeiung gegen das Konzil von Konstanz"). - Vorsatz mit altem Besitzvermerk Baron Cramer-Klett. Wenig gebräunt, nur gegen Ende einige Blätter mit kleinem Feuchtrand weit vom Text. Sehr breitrandig, teils unaufgeschnitten, sauber, schön und auf gutem, festem Papier. " ".

         LIBELLUS ARTIFICIOSUS OMNIBUS PICTORIBUS, STATUARIIS, AURIFABRIS, LAPIDICIDIS, ARCULARIIS, LAMINARIIS, & CULTRARIIS FABRIS

      Henricum Vogtherren, Argentorati [Strassburg] 1540 - 195 x 138 mm. (7 5/8 x 5 3/8"). [28] leaves. Second Printing in Latin. Excellent retrospective modern brown crushed morocco tooled in blind, covers with concentric frames of plain rules and floral rolls, central panel divided into two squares decorated with dots and daisies, raised bands, gilt titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In a fleece-lined maroon slipcase. Publisher's device on title page and 55 pages with 700 WOODCUT DESIGNS. Brunet III, 1114; Fairfax Murray German 428; Passavant III, 346 (5); VD16 ZV 30557. Title page a little soiled, D3 with two-inch brown stain, isolated rust spots, otherwise A FINE COPY, clean and fresh in an unworn binding. This is a very rare early edition--in decidedly and atypically attractive condition--of the first printed model book for artists, originally published by Vogtherr in 1537-38 under the German title "Ein Frembds und Wunderbars Kunstbuchlin." The German edition had a brief preface, in which Vogtherr expressed concern for the state of fine arts in Germany, and offered these models as drawing exercises for artists. There is no letterpress in this edition; the 55 pages following the title contain anywhere from nine to 24 designs, including hands, feet, helmets, armor, quivers, swords, capitals and bases of columns, candelabra, escutcheons, and the heads of men and women in a variety of dress. Fairfax Murray observes that these are "all distinguished by beauty and originality, especially in regard to the female heads which show a great variety in the styles of dressing." Vogtherr (1490-1556) was an artist, printer, and poet who had studied art with Hans Burgkmair in Augsburg. He settled in Strassburg in 1526, where he operated a printing business with his son, Heinrich the Younger. This art book was a popular work, appearing in German (1537), Latin (1539), French (1540), Spanish (1541), and Dutch (1549) editions (the lack of letterpress making it easy to produce for various markets), and it continued to be reprinted into the 17th century. But because of the heavy use they almost always endured, copies of all these early editions have either been reduced to rubble or are now in sorry condition. Fairfax Murray lists the 1539-40 Latin printings as "extremely rare" and records bear him out: OCLC, COPAC, and KVK locate just two copies of the 1540 printing and five of the 1539 edition. Rare Book Hub finds four copies of the 1539 edition sold, the last in 1962, and neither RBH nor ABPC records a copy of the 1540 printing at auction. A copy in a modern binding of a 1538 edition sold most recently in 2013 for $32,500.

Aristophanes Aristophanes was an ancient Athenian Greek playwright, remembered for his comedy plays and examples of drama known as Old Comedy. Writing during the 4th-century BC, Aristophanes was lesser-known than other Greek philosophers such as Plato and Aristotle. Aristophanes’ plays were written for festivals in Athens and the Theatre of Dionysus. This exceedingly rare 16th-century edition was printed entirely in Greek by Christian Wechel. Wechel’s Paris editions are considered some of the most correct and are known for their beauty. This printing is fitted with the Wechel printer’s emblem on the title page.

         La Vergine e lo Spirito Santo

      1540 - Bulino, 1540 circa, siglato in basso a sinistra IULIO BONASONE IN/VENTORE. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata al rame o con sottili margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Il soggetto dell’incisione è di invenzione dello stesso Bonasone. Indubbiamente l’influenza del Parmigianino è forte: la posizione della Vergine di spalle è analoga a quella di S. Cecilia, nel disegno del Mazzola conservato al Puskin Museum di Mosca, così come i panneggi e la figura richiamano altre due invenzioni del Parmigianino: la Donna con due fanciulli, e Giuditta e Oloferne nei disegni conservati al British Museum. Bell'esemplare. Engraving, circa 1540, signed at lower left Julio Bonasone IN / inventor. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with watermark unreadable, trimmed to copperplate or with thin margins, in perfect condition. The subject of the engraving is an invention by Bonasone himself. Undoubtedly the influence of Parmigianino is strong: the position of the shoulders of the Virgin is similar to that of St. Cecilia, in the drawing by Mazzola kept the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. as well the drapery and figure recall two other inventions by Parmigianino: the "Woman with two children", and "Judith and Holofernes" in the drawings preserved in the British Museum. A good example. Bartsch, XV.122.49; Le Blanc, I.441.49; Massari, Iulio Bonasone, p. 40 n. 13. Dimensioni 198 240mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Donna nuda con la Morte

      1540 - Bulino, 1540 circa, monogrammato in lastra. Copia in controparte dell'incisione di Beham. Poco prima del 1520, alcuni giovani artisti della cerchia di Albercht Dürer presero a realizzare incisioni molto piccole che hanno sfidato lo spettatore con un mondo in miniatura, un mondo di nuovo soggetto laico e di interpretazioni non convenzionali di temi tradizionali. A causa delle ridotte dimensioni delle loro incisioni, questi artisti sono stati appellati a lungo, con il nome collettivo, e poco lusinghiero, di Piccoli Maestri di Norimberga. Il nucleo del gruppo consiste in tre artisti di Norimberga, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham e Georg Pencz, e inoltre Jacob Bink da Colonia e Heinrich Aldegrever da Soest. La presente incisione proviene da una vecchia collezione in cui le opere erano conservate, come spesso accadeva, applicate in un album databile al XVIII secolo. Buona prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilate al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1540 circa, signed on plate. Anon copy after Beham. A good impression, printed on contemporary paper, trimmed to the platemar, in good conditions. Shortly before 1520, several young artists in the immediate circle of Albercht Dürer began making remarkably small engravings that challenged the viewer with a world in miniature; a world of new secular subject and of unconventional interpretations of traditional themes. Because of the scale of their engravings these artists have long been saddled with the unflattering collective name the Little Masters. The core of the group consist in three Nuremberg artists, Hans Sebald & Bartel Beham and Georg Pencz, Jacob Bink form Cologne and Heinrich Aldegrever from Soest. This engraving comes from an old collection and were pasted in XVIII century portofolio. Pauli 151d (copia in controparte). Dim. 48x76. Dimensioni [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         De figvris sententiarvm, ac verborvm. Catalogus autorum sequenti pagella continetur

      apud Seb. Gryphium, Lugduni 1540 - Small 8vo, pp. 119, [5]; collating a-g8 h6; printer's woodcut device on title, woodcut initials; removed from binding, text block sound. Publius Rutilius Lupus was a Roman rhetorician who flourished during the reign of Tiberius (ca. 14-37 AD). His treatise on the figures of speech and oratory (De figuris sententiarum) is valuable chiefly as containing a number of examples, well translated into Latin, from the lost works of Greek rhetoricians. See Adams R-966 for the Venice edition of 1533, but this edition not in Adams.

         M. Fab. Quintiliani Oratoris Eloquentissimi Declamationum Liber

      Lugduni (Lyon): Sebastian Gryphius, 1540. Hardcover. Very good. Small 8vo. 247,(1)pp. This is the "Declamationum Liber", or part two (complete) of Quintilian's "Institutionum Oratoriarum Libri XII" and though it has its own title page and pagination, there is no publisher indicia; that was printed only in part 1. The final page is a woodcut of Gryphius' trademark griffin printer's device. Gryphius issued ten editions of Quintilian, all between 1531 and 1575. Of these editions we have eliminated five based either on personal inspection or catalogued pagination, leaving editions in 1534, 1536, 1540, 1544 and 1549, of which this copy is one. Later (18th cent.?) binding of full calf; spine in six compartments with raised bands, gilt; red leather lettering piece, gilt. Hinges neatly mended else a very good copy with a fine textblock. The copy of lawyer, scholar, Greek translator and editor of the Chicago Tribune Horace White (1834-1916), with his bookplate on the front pastedown. All editions of Gryphius' Quintilian are uncommon.
