        1:] Pantagruel, Roy des dispodes. [With:] [2:] Grands annales ou croniques tres veritables des gestes merveilleux du grand Gargantua et Pantagruel [?]. [With:] [3:] Le songe de Pantagruel avec la deploraion de feu messire Anthoine du Bourg

      [1; 2:] [S.n. (Pierre de Tours?)]; [3:] Adam Saulnier, [1; 2:] [S.l. (Lyons?)];[3:] Paris 1542 - First edition of the first two books of "La vie de Gargantua et de Pantagruel" together, second of the authoritative text of both. Bound together with the first edition of François Habert's "Le songe de Pantagruel" and a woodcut portrait of Rabelais. In seventeenth-century red morocco, covers gilt-panelled "Au Semè" binding, consisting of interweaving double, mirrored "D" and an "S", probably the monogram of Dominique Séguier (1593-1659; Bishop of Auxerre and Meaux). Spine with four raised bands, the compartments decorated the same as the panels. Board edges and turn-ins gilt. Marbled endpapers renewed in the nineteenth-century. [1:] A-N8; [2:] A-P8 (P8 blank); [3:] A-F4., [1:] [104]; [2:] [120]; [3:] [24] leaves. First edition of the combined edition of the first two books of the pentalogy "La vie de Gargantua et de Pantagruel", which is the second edition of the authoritative text of both books. Supplemented with the contemporary first edition of François Habert's para-Rabelaisian work "Le songe de Pantagruel" and a woodcut portrait of Rabelais. This edition of Gargantua and Pantagruel is one of the three 1542 Lyonese editions, probably printed by Pierre de Tours, François Juste's successor. The text is identical to Juste's 1542 revised and enlarged edition, which was presumably prepared from a corrected copy by Rabelais himself who added a few previously unpublished passages and revised those related to the Sorbonne and the "Sorbonnistes" for which the work was formerly condemned by the Parliament (nevertheless condemned again in 1553). The present edition's preface warns the reader of a pirated edition, referring to Etienne Dolet's 1542 edition, a reprint of Denis Janot's Paris 1537 edition of the unexpurgated text. The preface, a note from "Limprimeur au Lecteur" is attributed to Rabelais by some bibliographer's, among them Brunet in his Recherches sur les éditions originales de Rabelais (Paris, 1852), however it was disproved by Plan ("C'est avoir une bien piètre opinion de son style" ?). Extremely scarce edition. Rawles and Screech list only three copies. The third part of the volume is Habert's para-Rabelaisian work, constructed around three dreams, and supports the facultative marriage of the clergy which was an important issue of the time. The work was published in Paris by Adam Saulnier in 1542, two different editions are known form the same year, with minor differences on the title page. Exceedingly scarce, only one other copy known of the present one (Chantilly (Fr), Musée Condé), and two of the variant (FB 24772; USTC 27250). (No surviving copy is known of the undated Rouen edition, by Claude le Roy [Du Verdier: pp. L4r, p. 403].) Rabelais' woodcut portrait bound to the rear of the book. The portrait is identical to his first known portrait, which appeared in the 1569 Jean Martin edition of "Les Oeuvres". This copy contains seven addition leaves bound before the printed text, of which four are inscribed by five different neat hands. The earliest and longest is by an unknown hand, quotes Scévole de Sainte-Marthe's comments on Rabelais in French and Latin (from Virorum doctrina illustrium; Poitiers, 1598.). This is followed by a short unidentified possessor's inscription in French, which states that the book was bought in October 1806 and claims - erroneously - that it has belonged to the French noblewomen, and maîtresse-en-titre of Henry II, Diane de Poitiers (1499-1566), supposedly because of the binding's ornaments of the interweaving double "D", which was an emblem appeared often on her bindings. The leaf mounted on the inner front panel contains notes by three nineteenth-century hands in German, by the historian Karl Halling (1806-1837) who also attributes the binding incorrectly to Diane de Poitiers, a short note by an unidentified hand in pencil, and by the literary historian, Camillus Wendeler (1843-1902), providing bibliographical references to the content of the volume.

        Private-Law Treatises [and other works, including (incipit): Der Fünff N.O. Lannde und Fürstlichen Graffschafft Görz Vergleichung Anno 1542].

      Probably Austria, later 17th century. - Folio (210 x 310 mm). German manuscript on paper. 698 written pages on 396 unnumbered ff. Contemporary calf; spine gilt. Collection of almost entirely German (Austrian) 16th century legal texts, but also comprising a few 15th century sources (and one in Latin), thus assembled in the lat 17th century. The tax legislation for all five Lower Austrian countries and Gorizia from 1542 (copied from the printed book) is followed by the extensive Treatises of Bernhard Walther (the "father of Austrian law" who in the mid-16th century collected the Lower Austrian customary law). The present, very complete manuscript comprises 14 of the 15 treatises (all except that on bankruptcy), and it was used by Max Rintelen for his critical edition, published in 1937 (cf. reference below). The treatises are followed by decisions concerning the law of inheritance ("Von Erbschafften drey Fragen, dem Herrn Landtmarschalkh . alhier anzuzaigen"; "Ob deß abgestorbnen Wittib, oder Glaubiger den Vorgang haben: Der Regierung Rathschlag" etc.), "Bericht wegen der Caution im Landtsrechten in Österreich Under der Enß", "General wegen der Verstorbenen Pfarrer in Steyer Verlassenschafft", "Tractatus de testibus, ex secundo tomo actionum forensium D. Joan. Oldendorffii"; "Königlicher Bevelch daß ain jede Sach vor dem ordentlichen Gericht erster Instanz clagt soll werden (4 March 1534); "Khay. May. Declaration und Spruch zwischen der Löblichen Universitet zu Wienn, und gemainer Statt daßelbst" (1571), "Gemaine Beschwerung der Erblande" (with detailed regulations on mining and minting, manslaughter, gypsies, Jews, etc.), confirmations of decrees issued by Frederick III in 1444, 1462 and 1470, etc. - Some waterstaining near end; occasional slight staining. Spine-ends professionally repaired. Provenance: Handwritten ownership of Baron Anton von Egger (d. 1727): "Ex lib. Ant. L. B. de Egker". Later in the collection of the Austrian legal historian and numismatist Arnold Luschin von Ebengreuth (1841-1932) with his etched bookplate to the front pastedown. After Luschin's death his heirs presented the volume to his student, the legal historian Max Rintelen (1880-1965); cf. his entry in blue ink: "Von Luschins Erben erhalten. Max Rintelen". M. Rintelen, Bernhard Walthers privatrechtliche Traktate (Leipzig 1937), Ms. LE (p. XVIII). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        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.

        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]

        La figlia di Cimone sostiene il padre carcerato

      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

        Magnanimità di Scipione

      1542 - Bulino, 1542, privo di firma dell’incisione, datato in lastra sul sasso a destra, in basso al centro: 'AVRVM QVOD PRO REDIMENDA CAPTIVA VIRGINE PARENTES/ATTVLERANT LVCEIO SPONSO TRADIT SCIPIO ROMAE EXCD/ANT. SAL.' Da un soggetto attribuito a Salviati. Esemplare nel primo stato di tre, con l'indirizzo di Antonio Salamanca. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "aquila nel cerchio con corona", rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. La stampa viene catalogata dal Bartsch come opera di anonimo incisore della scuola di Raimondi, che incide nello stile di Agostino Veneziano, da un modello non identificato di artista fiorentino. Zanetti, invece, vi ravvisa lo stile di Giulio Romano, inglobando l’incisione nella suite di soggetti sulla storia di Scipione eseguiti da Marco Dente. D’Arco, riconoscendo l’opera quale invenzione di Giulio, erroneamente la considera come uno stato dell’incisione di Diana Scultori, e la pone in relazione con il medaglione con la Continenza di Scipione della Stanza dei Cesari. Così anche Dollmayr che attribuisce la stampa a Marco Dente. Cirillo Archer in TIB sostiene che l’incisione sia stilisticamente affine alla Morte di Meleagro di Nicolas Beatrizet. Hermann Voss, seguendo questa indicazione, ascrive correttamente il disegno preparatorio al Salviati, sulla base delle analogie del soggetto con gli affreschi della Storia di Camillo di Palazzo Vecchio a Firenze, e il bulino alla cerchia del Beatrizet. Alla luce di tali ipotesi, la Davis assegna la stampa a Beatrizet stesso. Nella collezione del British Museum la stampa è catalogata sotto il nome di Enea Vico, secondo l’attribuzione di Darrel Crumpacker, basata sulle affinità stilistiche e delle dimensioni che questa stampa mostra con La Battaglia dei Lapiti e i Centauri che Vico incide all’incirca nello stesso periodo. In realtà, il nome di Vico era stato già proposto già in 'Notice des fayences peintres italiennes. . .,' Series G, pubblicato da Charles de Mourgues Freres, nel 1864, dove l’autore descrive una Magnanimità di Scipione edita da Salamanca nel 1542, di cui Vico sarebbe non l’incisore ma l’autore del modello utilizzato per l’incisione. L’influenza di Agostino Veneziano è evidente: l’obelisco che appare alla sinistra di Scipione è molto simile a quello che appare nella Morte di Anania del Veneziano, e nell’Ingresso trionfale di Furio Camillo, e in tre tavole della serie "La Favola di Amore e Psiche". L’obelisco appare, inoltre, in un’altra incisione di Enena Vico, S.Giorgio e il Drago, edita sempre dal Salamanca nel 1542. È da sottolineare che l’obelisco come elemento architettonico non ricorre in nessun’altra stampa romana del tempo. L’iscrizione dell’opera allude all’episodio sulla magnanimità di Scipione raccontato da Livio (XXVI,5): conquistata la città spagnola Nuova Cartagine, venne condotta al cospetto del condottiero romano una giovane donna che avrebbe dovuto far parte del bottino di guerra del vincitore. Nonostante questo diritto acquisito, essendo venuto a sapere che la fanciulla era stata precedentemente promessa in sposa, Scipione fece convocare l’uomo, di nome Allucio, e gliela restituì, donandogli anche la somma di riscatto che i parenti di lei erano riusciti a raggranellare nella speranza di liberarla. Engraving, 1542, inscribed lower right, including publisher's address: 'AVRVM QVOD PRO REDIMENDA CAPTIVA VIRGINE PARENTES/ATTVLERANT LVCEIO SPONSO TRADIT SCIPIO ROMAE EXCD/ANT. SAL.' , dated '1542'. After a subject attributed to Salviati. Example of the first state of three, with the address of Antonio Salamanca. A good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with "eagle in a circle with crown" watermark, trimmed to the borderline, good condition. Cirillo Archer in TIB claims the burin work is close to Nicolas Beatrizet's Death of Meleager. Hermann Voss in 'Kompositionen des Francesco Salviati in der italienischen Graphik des XVI. Jahrhunderts', Beilage der Graphischen Künste 1 (1912), pp.
