         Disputationum adversus gentes libri octo. Nunc primum in lucem editi

      Rome, Francesco Priscianese, 1542. First edition of Arnobius' seven books attacking the pagans, his only surviving work, written at Sicca (modern El Kef) about 302-305, to refute the heathen charge that Christianity was the cause of many terrible afflictions which had fallen upon the Roman empire, including pestilence, droughts, wars, famine, locusts, mice, and hailstorms. It is a mine of information about the temples, idolatrous worship, and Greco-Roman mythology of his time, and was thoroughly exploited by Renaissance antiquarians. Our copy was once in the library of Peter Frederik Suhm (1728-1798) and was sold as a duplicate by the Royal Library, Copenhagen.Arnobius Afer died circa 330 Disputationum adversus gentes libri octo.

[img-2343-left-large_default] Duplicate from the Royal Library, Copenhagen First edition of Arnobius' seven books attacking the pagans, his only surviving work, written at Sicca (modern El Kef) about 302-305, to refute the hea­then charge that Christianity was the cause of many terrible afflictions which had fallen upon the Roman empire, including pestilence, droughts, wars, fam­ine, locusts, mice, and hailstorms. It is a mine of information about the temples, idolatrous worship, and Greco-Roman mythology of his time, and was thoroughly exploited by Renaissance antiquarians. The eighth book printed here ('Liber de errore pro­fanarum religionum'), a dialogue between two Christian converts and a cultivated Roman pagan while walking by the sea at Ostia, is a work of the Latin Christian apologist Marcus Minucius Felix (fl. 200-240 ad), as the humanists Adriaen de Jonghe and François Baudouin found out years later. The editor, Fausto Sabeo of Bressanone (1478-1558), keeper of the Vatican library, states that he discovered the manuscript in Switzerland or Germany ('iure belli meus est Arnobius, quem e media barbarie non sine dispendio, et discrimine eripuerem', folio a2 verso) and acknowledges the help of Girolamo Ferrari (1501-1542) and the pub­lisher, Francesco Priscianese, in correcting some passages. Sabeo dedi­cated the edition to François i of France 'because of his love for literature and his firm attitude towards the new Lutheran heretics', 2 and later presented the manuscript to the King (now in Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, Lat. 1661). 3 The book was part of a vast, uncompleted project initiated by Cardinal Marcello Cervini, in 1542, of which the others were Greek editions of Homer and Theophylactus (both Rome: Blado & partners, 1542) and Nicholas i, Epistolae (Rome: Francesco Priscianese, 1542). 4 Printing commenced on 22 January 1542, but was not completed until 18 October 1543. The dedica­tory letter to François i is dated 'cal. Septembris mdxliii' in all copies; in some the colophon is dated 1542 (as here), in others 1543.

Originally in the library of Princess Charlotte Amalie of Denmark (1706-1782), this volume was sold as a duplicate by the Royal Library in 1786, when purchased by Suhm. It was reacquired when Suhm sold his collection of c. 100,000 volumes to the Royal Library in 1796. [img-2345-left-large_default] Printed inventory label on front pastedown.

         Anglia II Nova Tabula [England & Wales]

      Basle 1542 - Woodcut from the second (1542) edition of Sebastian Munster's Geographia, the map unchanged from the first (1540) edition. 250 x 340 mm., sheet 305 x 390 mm. Modern hand-colouring. Woodcut device verso, possibly by Hans Holbein. Central vertical fold, faint marginal adhesion marks verso, a very good example. The first separately-printed map of England, probably owing something to the 14th century Gough map. A third edition followed in 1545, and a fourth, with a hatched border, in 1552. Münster (1489-1552) was a German geographer, mathematiciam and Hebraist, who published editions and translations of the Bible as well as Hebrew grammars, and whose major work, the Geographia Universalis, a comprehensive and detailed description of the known world, was perhaps the most important and influential geography of the sixteenth century. Its production involved the assistance of over a hundred and twenty collaborators. In all, Münster published 142 maps, both Ptolemaic and contemporary, in his lifetime.

With title printed in black and red, within woodcut borders. Contemporary slightly overlapping parchment, remnants of ties.

      Cf. BCNI 01998, 02056, 02135, 02329, 02870, 02871; Belg. Typ. 5805, 1159-1162; BMC STC Dutch, p. 76; Jaspers 289-292; Machiels F-155-158. Third (?) edition of a rare 16th-century Dutch devotional work written by Floris van Haarlem, Carthusian prior at Louvain and edited by the Antwerp priest Simon van Planen. With a dedicatory letter to Gheraert Heerman, rector and confessor of the Roman Catholic monasteries at Leiden, dated Louvain, 2 April 1542. The work itself is divided into four treatises, with an extensive index. The colophon at the end of the work is cut off, but the privilege at the end is granted to Heyndrick Peetersen and dated 17 January 1546. Because an edition of 1546 is unrecorded, it seems likely that this is the edition published in 1547. Other edition were published by Peetersen van Middelburg in 1542, 1544 and 1552, followed by two other editions in 1564. A Latin translation by Nicolaus Zegerus appeared in 1656 as Via vitae, libellus plane aureus,… Only a few copies of the several editions are known.With library stamp of "St. Hugh's, Parkminster" and manuscript owner's inscription entry of "Pieter Loontjens, filius Johannis" on flyleaf. First and last leave somewhat soiled, four leaves loose in the last quire, some occasional thumbing and colophon on last leave cut off and restored. Binding slightly soiled and spine chipped. Still a good copy.

The colophon at the end of the work is cut off, but the privilege at the end is granted to Heyndrick Peetersen and dated 17 January 1546. Because an edition of 1546 is unrecorded, it seems likely that this is the edition published in 1547. Other edition were published by Peetersen van Middelburg in 1542, 1544 and 1552, followed by two other editions in 1564. A Latin translation by Nicolaus Zegerus appeared in 1656 as Via vitae, libellus plane aureus,...

         Der Stadt Leyden dienst-bouc, innehoudende verclaringe van tvvezen ende ghelegentheyt vande zelve stadt, gelijck die van outs gheweest, ende verdeelt is.[Leiden], Raadhuispers, 1602. Small folio (ca. 19 x 29 cm). With woodcut coat of arms of the city of Leiden on title-page, and an added full-page engraved author's portrait by W. van Swanenburgh, dated 1608. Printed in textura, civilité and roman types, alternately in 2 columns and over the whole page, and with blank, outlined spaces for intended seals. Early 18th-century richly gold-tooled red morocco, gilt-edges.

      Carter and Vervliet, Civilité-types, p. 36 & 293; Nijhoff & Van Hattum 143; NNBW II, cols. 608-612. First edition of the first historical description of the city of Leiden by Jan van Hout (1542-1609), town secretary and a well-known poet. One of Van Hout's poems on the city of Leiden Opt ontset van Leyden is included in the present work. Jan van Hout's Dienst-bouc, in which for the first time several charters were published, served as a foundation for Orlers Beschrijving van Leyden, published in 1614. The Dienst-bouc goes beyond a purely Leiden-interest. From a typographical point of view the work is one of the most beautiful Dutch book-productions of the late 16th and early 17th century. Printed in different types, it shows a perfect lay-out for both single pages, as the whole work. Since the book was printed at the municipal press at the Leiden Town-Hall, it must have been the author himself who did the typographical design. With owner's inscription of Ledeboer on the end-paper and crossed initials on third flyleaf; binding very slightly rubbed; some slight foxing in the margins of the portrait. Fine copy.

         Compendium dialecticae ad libros logicorum Aristo. admodum utile et necessarium

      Paris: Simon De Colines, 1542. Later edition. Woodcut printer's device on title, wooduct initials. Modern vellum. Heavily annotated with contemporary notes inside the text and in the margins in the first four leaves. Some toning, though still a fine copy. The Compendium, first published in Paris in 1539, is a significant work in several ways. For one thing, it illustrates the tendency to "abbreviate, simplify and popularize . . . Titlemans introduces the characteristically modern argument of saving time in education." For students, especially brothers of his Order, whose time was so taken up by their religious duties that only a minimum was available for the study of philosophy, Titelmans first created a course on logic and natural philosophy "reduced to orderly and compendious brevity." The result "was that many importuned him to publish his lectures. Thus Titelmans created a brief and succinct compendium on Aristotelian dialect, reducing Aristotle's system to a short and precise summary. It is divided into six parts, following Aristotle's Organon. The author defines and comments the main principles of Logic: concepts, categories, enunciation, type (form) of arguments describing the four types of syllogism, topics and the sophistic refutation. The Compendium was quite popular as a textbook in numerous university courses after its publication. Titelmans (1502-1537) studied theology, possibly at the Studium Theologicum of the friars Minor while teaching at the arts faculty in the Paedagogium Porci (Luovain, Belgium). He joined the Franciscan Order in 1523, and engaged in a major controversy with Erasmus over the interpretation of the Pauline Epistoles. He also authored a compendium on natural philosophy first printed at Antwerp in 1530. He became a Capuchin in 1535 and moved to Italy, where he worked at the Hospital for the Incurables.

         Le Philocope de Messire Iehan Boccacce Florentin, Contenat l’histoire de Fleury & Blanchefleur, divise en sept livres traduictz d’italien en francoys par Adrian Sevin Gentilhomme de la maison de Monsieur de Gié.

      (Paris, D. Janot for) Gilles Corrozet, (February, 24th) 1542. - Folio. VI, CLXXIIII leaves. With - repetitions included -36 text woodcuts (one nearly full-page) all surrounded by a varying border (partly decorated with coats of arms), some "lettres fleuries" initials by G. Tory (cf. Mortimer ) and few "Crible " initials. Woodcut printer's device. A magnificent, signed heraldic binding by the famous Paris bookbinder Gruel from the last quarter of the 19th century in an excellent state of preservation, with polychromatic Moroccan ribbon marquetry, abundant gilding of spine, cover, bottom and inside edges as well as gold-embossed spine title; three-side gilt-edging. In a later shift (broad spine of brown, napped leather with gold-embossed spine title [thumbed, somewhat faded], cover done in marbled paper, suede-lined [the lining slightly stained] and in a half-leather slip case with identical cover (slightly thumbed, edges somewhat flattened). First edition of Sevin’s translation. Denis Janot organized this edition under his own name and for various Paris bookshops (cf. the corresponding entry in the Ind. Aurel. ), whose own signets and sales notes were then imprinted. Thus our specimen bears the Corrozet-signet on the title page (v. Renou ard 206) and the note : "On les vend à Paris en la grand Salle du Pa1ais du costé de 1a chapelle de messieurs, en 1a boutique de Gilles Corrozet Libraire." This signet makes the book - which is extremely rare anyhow - a top rarity , not accounted for in the relevant bibliographies / catalogues. The woodcuts derive from Janot's edition of the first books of "Amadis de Gaula" of 1540 (cf. Brun and Mortimer), but partly they were made earlier (thus one border is dated "1520"). The borders frequently bear foliage ornaments, and a whole series of them sows grotesque faces and heraldic shields. Brun writes about the "Amadis" woodcuts as a whole: « L'Amadis des Gaules dont le premier livre parut en 1540, est orné de vignettes qui offrent au lecteur une suite de charmant petits tableaux. Certaines sont d'un dessin si parfait et d'une taille si adroite qu'on ne peut s'empêcher de songer aux gravures de Lüt zelburger d'après Holbein. Ici, le style, les proportions des personnages, les physiono mies, tout enfin est différent et accuse la main d'un artiste français, mais la mâitrise est presque égale » (p.68), and generally on Janot's and Corrozet's importance (p.64 / 65) : « Ce fut le role de trois imprimeurs, Denis Janot, Etienne Groulleau et Gilles Corrozet, de répandre a profusion, sous un format commode, de petits textes classiques ou des livrets abondamment illustrés. Leurs vignettes élégantes et spirituelles, transmises ou copiées d'atelier en atelier, interprétées par les ciseleurs, les peintres verriers, les émailleurs et les fayenciers, contribuèrent pour une grande part a fixer les nouvelles formules décorati ves. ». The lavishly equipped Moroccan leather binding bears in the middle of both covers the coat of arms of Henri IV (1553 -1610) in an oval cartouche with the French heraldic shield (on a blue background) and that of Navarre (on red) together with three crowns: the two small ones representing France and Navarre, and the big one symbolizing the union (v. J. Guigard, Nouvelle Armorial du Bibliophile. Paris 1890. p. 20). The heraldic shields and the small crowns are enclosed by delicate foliage. Crown as well as tendrils are gold-embossed, the colours of the escutcheons are subtly repeated in the big crown. The coats of arms are surrounded by a network of partly geometrical, partly floral and ornamental polychromatic ribbons (in beige, brown, ruby and red) end ing at top and bottom in a bigger grotesque, and below four corner vignettes in a smaller one each (in beige the bigger, in brown the smaller ones). The fields between the stripes are gold-em bossed with "Crible" dots. The cover decor is predominantly worked in leather mar quetry . This binding in mock-historical style follows the tradition of "reliure adaptée au texte", a speciality of the Gruel [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1542 - Bulino, 1542, datato in lastra sul basamento del pilastro. Da un soggetto di Rosso fiorentino. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con l’indirizzo di Antonio Salamanca. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con lettera M e stella" (Briquet 8390-91-92), con inusuali ampi margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. L’opera raffigura Pero, figlia di Cimone ateniese, che alimenta col proprio latte il vecchio padre, costretto in carcere. Scoperta dalle guardie, sarà rilasciata insieme al padre per la pietas di cui aveva dato prova. L’invenzione del soggetto, dall’Armano attribuito a Raffaello, è stato definitivamente identificato dalla Borea nel rilievo in stucco del Rosso fiorentino sotto l’affresco della Galleria di Francesco I, a Fontainbleau, raffiguranti Cleobi e Micone. Carroll nel 1987 sostiene che l’incisione non derivasse dallo stucco ma da un disegno perduto di Rosso fiorentino, poiché nella stampa sono presenti elementi assenti nello stucco, vicini comunque allo stile del Rosso. Carroll respinge l'attribuzione del Bartsch a Georges Reverdy, e anche il suggerimento di Zerner del 1972 a Domenico del Barbiere, sulla base di affinità stilistiche. Secondo Massari, la stampa è da attribuirsi a Giulio Bonasone. Attualmente l’opera è attribuita a Georges Reverdy. Il tema della Pietas filiale era molto sentito nell’antica Roma. Non è un caso, infatti, che proprio il soggetto di Cimone e Pero – tradita anche da Valerio Massimo - si trovi già rappresentata a Pompei nella villa di Valerio Frontone. Si narra che a Roma In ricordo di questo esempio di amore filiale che fu eretto nel foro Olitorio, nel 181 a.C., un tempio dedicato alla Pietas, poi sostituito dalla basilica di San Nicola in carcere. L’iconografia conobbe una grande diffusione sia nel Rinascimento che per tutto il Seicento, e di solito è nota con il titolo Carità Romana. Al verso timbro della collezione Benedic Penon (Lugt, 3830). he daughter of Cimon supports the father prisoner Engraving, 1542, dated on plate at lower center. After Rosso Fiorentino. Example of the second state of two, with the address of Antonio Salamanca. A fine impression, on contemporary laid paper with "shield with letter M and star" watermark, unusual wide margins, perfect conditions. Pero, who secretly breastfeeds her father, Cimon, after he is incarcerated and sentenced to death by starvation. She is found out by a jailer, but her act of selflessness impresses officials and wins her father's release After the stucco relief under Rosso Fiorentino's fresco representing Cleobis and Biton in the Galerie Francois I at Fontainebleau. Carroll in Washington 1987 supposes that it was not made directly after the stucco, and because even the figures in the print that are absent from the stucco are very similar to Rosso's manner, the print was most probably made after a lost drawing by him. Carroll rejects Bartsch's attribution to Georges Reverdy, and also Zerner's suggestion of 1972 that its manner was close to Domenico del Barbiere. Massari suggests the attribution to Giulio Bonasone. The subject, known since the last quarter of the 15th century as " RomanCharity," is based on a text of Valerius Maximus, "Factorum et Dictorum Memorabilium Libri IX," but refers to an earlier legend which appeared at Rome at the beginning of the 2nd century BC, in connection with the construction of a temple dedicated to Pietas (Charity), a temple dedicated to Pietas, later replaced by the Church of St. Nicholas in Prison. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, many European artists depicted the scene. Georges Reverdy 1529 fl. - 1564/5 died (Also known as Reverdy, Georges; Reverdinus, Cesare; Reverdino, Gaspar) Engraver. Probably of origins in Piedmont, documented in Lyons from 1529 to 1565, in the last of which he is described as dead. Since his last dated print is from 1564, he probably died the previous year. Wrongly catalogued by Bartsch. It is possible, however, that he went to I

         La Lotta tra Lapiti e Centauri o Il Rapimento di una Donna

      1542 - Bulino, 1542 circa, firmato e datato in lastra in basso a sinistra 'ENEAS/VICCO/FACIEBA/T/1542'. Unico stato conosciuto, con l’excudit di Tommaso Barlacchi, in basso sulla destra: 'TOM. BARL. EXC.' Da un soggetto di Rosso Fiorentino. L’incisione è basata su un dipinto di Rosso Fiorentino che decorava la Galleria di Francesco I a Fontainebleau, e rappresenta il rame più celebre dato in luce da Tommaso Barlacchi. La scena raffigurata al centro una donna che viene rapita da un uomo e da un satiro durante lo svolgimento di un banchetto. Sulla destra, un uomo con la spada sguainata si precipita in soccorso della donna, mentre un altro afferra la spalla dell’assalitore, brandendo con la destra un pugnale; a sinistra, un uomo tiene le redini di un cavallo cavalcato da un uomo che partecipa al rapimento. L’interpretazione del soggetto non è unanime: Bartsch identifica la scena con la Battaglia tra Lapiti e Centauri, narrata nell’Odissea (XXI, 295 segg.) e poi, posteriormente da Pindaro (fr. 166 Schr.), secondo i quali la lotta scoppia quando i Centauri, invitati alle nozze di Piritoo e Ippodamia, nell'ubbriachezza tentarono di rapire Ippodamia e altre donne dei Lapiti. L’interpretazione, però, non è convincente per l’assenza dei Centauri nella scena. Vasari, invece, identifica la scena come il rapimento di Elena. L’interpretazione viene ripresa da Alfredo Petrucci, che smentisce Bartsch e riconosce nel bulino il Primo Rapimento di Elena, ordito da Teseo. Una copia di quest’opera di Enea Vico fu incisa da Benedetto Stefani e pubblicata da Luca Bertelli. Splendido esemplare, impresso su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "balestra nel cerchio", insolitamente completa di margini bianchi di circa 2 cm, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Engraving, 1542, signed and dated on plate at lower left 'ENEAS/VICCO/FACIEBA/T/1542' and inscribed with publisher's address: 'TOM. BARL. EXC.' Only state known. After a subject by Rosso Fiorentino. This print is related to the fresco of the same subject, painted by Rosso Fiorentino in the Gallery of François I at Fontainebleau. Bartsch identifies the subject as the battle between the Lapiths and the centaurs; however, and while the scene certainly shows a banquet being interrupted by the abduction of a woman, there are no centaurs. Another interpretation, given by Vasari, is the rape of Helen of Troy. According to Alfredo Petrucci, the scene represents The first rape of Helen, when Helen was aged ten and raped by Theseus. A banquet occuring on the right is interrupted as at centre a woman is being abducted by a man and a satyr; on the right a man rushes to her rescue drawing his sword, another grabs the shoulder of one of the assailers and brandishes a dagger; on the left a man holding the reins of a rearing horse, A very good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper, with watermark "crossbow in a circle", unusual margins of 2 cm circa, in very good conditions. Bartsch XV.296.30; A. Petrucci, Primo ratto di Elena, in Il Messaggero, 29 giugno 1953 Dimensioni 418 295mm [Attributes: Signed Copy]
