         Natalis Comitum Veneti De venatione, libri IIII. Hieronymi Ruscellii scholiis brevissimis illustrati.

      [colophon:] Apud Aldi filios, 1551. Sole Aldine edition of Conti's four-part poem on => hunting and also the first edition overall; it enjoyed considerable success during the author's lifetime (1520-82) and was incorporated in many editions of his Mythologiae (first edition, 1567). The five pages of the final four leaves contain the scholia of the polymath Girolamo Ruscelli (c.1500-66), who was also a versifier of talent. Conti, a Humanist and historian, is now best remembered as a mythographer who believed that the Classical presenters of myths meant them to be read as allegory. Binding: 19th-century crushed midnight blue morocco, round spine with four raised bands forming five spine compartments, four of which are further defined by a single gilt rule on four sides and have each a gilt floral device in the center; each band accented with gilt beading. Author and title gilt in the fifth compartment and at base of bottom compartment, in gilt, place and date of publication. Both boards with a simple gilt triple-fillet border, board edges with a single gilt fillet, turn-ins gilt-tooled with an intricate roll. Endpapers of a French combed-up pattern. Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. Renouard opines: "Mince volume devenu rare."

         1551 Matthews Bible - Printed by T. Petyt - Small Folio - Cloth Lined Box

      - London, 1551. 19th century calf, bit rubbed but sound; in modern folding plushed lined cloth box. Lacks A2-6 of the preliminary leaves (including the whole of the calendar), the title to the Apocrypha and the last 6 leaves (4 of Revelations & 2 of the table, with the colophon); with some headlines shaved or cropped and many side notes shaved; various soiling & staining (to the bottom margin, from party way through the Pentateuch through the OT historical books and again toward the end of the NT); there are minor tears without loss (some repaired); there is a narrow internal tear to LI 8 removing a letter or two from columns of text) & KK1 (Susannah & Bel) is torn without loss (an awkward repair); these defects notwithstanding, generally the text is in good condition. Herbert 92, apparently variety C, though the general title is mounted and may be a composite: the center panel with the imprint seems to be inserted in the middle of the woodcuts (perhaps partly from another copy, though all of the parts seem to be genuine); a reprint of the Matthew's Bible of 1537, a "version, which welds together the best work of Tyndale and Coverdale, (and which is) generally considered to be the real primary version of our English Bible." . Thomas Matthew is commonly treated as a pseudonymn of John Rogers (1500?-1555), Tyndale's intimate friend, and the first martyr in the Marian persecution. But as Rogers only edited what is essentially Tyndale's translation, it seems more probable that Matthew stands for Tyndale's own name, which was then dangerous to employ. This edition closely agrees with Herbert 75, an edition of the Matthew's printed in 1549 (a larger black letter than Herbert 74, the 1549 edition edited by Becke). Still quite a respectable copy of a Matthew's Bible. Measures at 8.25" x 12.25". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Omnia quae extant opera, praeter Geographiam, quam non dissimili forma nuperrime aedidimus: summa cura & diligentia castigata ab Erasmo Osualdo Schrekhenfuchsio [Erasmus Oswald Scheckenfuchs].

      Basel, ( H. Petri, 1551). - 44 Bll., 447 S. mit zahlreichen Textholzschnitten. 2 doppelblattgr. Holzschnitt-Tafeln. Erste vom Baseler Astronomen Erasmus Oswald Schreckenfuchs herausgegebenen und kommentierten Ausgabe der astronomischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Schriften des Claudius Ptolemaeus (insgesamt zweite Gesamtausgabe dieser Schriften). - VD 16 P5205. STC 718. Adams P2208. Houzeau/L. 881. Zinner 2026. - Claudius Ptolemaeus [Klaudios Ptolemaios] war der bedeutendste Antike Astronom und Geograph. Unter den Werken des Ptolemaeus ragt sein Handbuch der Astronomie, das sogenannte Almagest, heraus. Dieses Werk systematisierte die bis dahin erfolgten astronomischen Forschungen in einer gleichermaßen mathematisch-technisch, wie auch methodisch herausragenden Form, so dass es für etwa 1500 Jahre das unbestrittene Grundlagenwerk der Astronomie wurde. Die ptolemaeische Astronomie beruhte auf der Theorie epizyklischer Kreise. Auf Grundlage dieser Theorie ließen sich die Planetenbewegungen mit hoher Genauigkeit berechnen. Eine ähnliche große Bedeutung wie das Almagest hat sein Tetrabiblos, in dem er sich mit der Astrologie beschäftigte. Dieses Werk wurde sozusagen zur Bibel der Astrologen. Für Ptolemaeus war die Astrologie der physische Teil seines Weltbildes, die Erkenntnis der Natur und der Eigenschaften der Himmelskörper und ihrer Wirkung in einer als Einheit gedachten Welt. Die magische Astrologie war ihm aber fremd. Als Herausgeber der vorliegenden Ausgabe fungierte Erasmus Oswald Schreckenfuchs (1511 - 1579). Dieser studierte in Wien, Ingolstadt und Tübingen und lehrte danach Hebräisch an der Universität Tübingen, wurde Professor für Hebräisch, Rhetorik, Mathematik und Astronomie an der Universität Basel und später in gleicher Funktion an der Universität Freiburg. Schreckenfuchs zählte zu den ersten Anhängern des Kopernikus in Deutschland. Zu seinen Schülern zählte der schweizerische Anatom und Botaniker Caspar Bauhin. Schreckenfuchs war der Herausgeber von Werken bedeutender antiker Astronomen (u.a. Claudii Ptolemaei, omnia quae extant opera, praeter geographiam [.], 1551), die er mit eigenen Kommentaren versah. Zusammen mit Sebastian Münster bearbeitete er hebräische mathematische Texte und übertrug sie in die lateinische Sprache (u.a. Sphaera mundi autore Rabbi Abrahamo Hispano filio R. Haijae, 1546). - Enthält je eine Karte des nördlichen und des südlichen Sternenhimmels von Johannes Honter (die nördliche mit 1531 datiert, die südliche mit dem Monogramm J H C), welche auch schon für die Ptolemaeus Ausgabe von 1541 verwendet wurden. "These two woodcut maps are noteworthy for both their geocentrism and their novel constellation style" (Warner, Sky explored. 123). Die Textholzschnitte zeigen Diagramme und diverse geometrische Konstruktionen. - Titel mit hinterlegter Fehlstelle (ohne Textberührung). Vorderer Buchinnendeckel mit eingeklebter Bibliothekssignatur.

         Las vidas de los Ilustres y Excelentes Varones Griegos y Romanos, escritas primero en lengua Griega por el grande Philósopho y verdadero historiador Plutarcho de Cheronea, y agora nuevamente traduzidas en Castellano

      - Castro de Salinas, Juan (pseudónimo Enzinas, Francisco de), Las vidas de los Ilustres y Excelentes Varones Griegos y Romanos, escritas primero en lengua Griega por el grande Philósopho y verdadero historiador Plutarcho de Cheronea, y agora nuevamente traduzidas en Castellano por., Imprimiéronse en la Imperial Ciudad de Colonia, y véndense en Anvers en casa de Arnoldo Bircman, a la enseña de la Gallina gorda, MDLXII Folio (275 x 200 mm.), 2 hs. + 320 págs. + 71 págs. "sign: [ ]2, A-Z6, Aa-Zz6, AA-GG6, [ ]2, 3A-3M5 ". Marca del impresor en portada. Encuadernación del siglo XVIII en plena piel con nervios, tejuelo con título y adornos dorados en lomo. Anotación manuscrita en hoja de guarda inicial: «[Crismón] El primero volumen de las vidas de illustres y excelentes varones Griegos y Romanos pareadas, y escritas primero en lengua Griega por el grave Philósopho y verdadero historiador Plutarcho de Cheronea, y presente traducidas en estilo castellano. En Argentina en casa de Agustín Frisio, año del señor de 1551». Igualmente al final, en el vuelto de la hoja de guarda: «educación de la juventud importantíssima, 147. Perfeccionar, 155b». Estado desconocido y único de la emisión póstuma de la traducción de Enzinas de una selección de las Vidas paralelas de Plutarco. Francisco de Enzinas (Burgos, 1518 - Estrasburgo, 1552), fue un notable humanista protestante, conocido primordialmente por su versión castellana del Nuevo Testamento (1543). El Burgalés había concebido un ambicioso proyecto, la Officina Hispanica, que se encargaría de difundir en lengua romance tanto obras greco-latinas como textos bíblicos. Para ello se relacionó con los principales impresores y libreros centroeuropeos. Así, durante su estancia como profesor de griego en Cambridge (1548-1549), contactó con Arnold Birkmann, quien mostraba gran interés por la difusión del libro español en Europa ante su creciente demanda. En 1550-1552, los últimos años de su vida, Enzinas se asienta con su familia en Estrabusgo. Pese a no ser un centro editorial notable, se había convertido en un importante destino de refugiados y exiliados: gran parte de los impresores eran afectos a la Reforma. Allí dará luz un buen número de sus obras, entre ellas El primero volvmen de las vidas de illvstres y excellentes varones Griegos y Romanos pareadas, e escritas primero en lengua Griega por el grave Philósopho y verdadero historiador Plutarcho de Cheronea, e al presente traduzidas en estilo Castellano, por Francisco de Enzinas, (En Argentina en casa de Augustín Frisio, a costas de Pedro de Porres, año del Señor de M.D.LI), con prólogo del traductor a Carlos V. Ante el posible conflicto que suponía la aparición del nombre de Enzinas en la portada (cabe recordar que su Nuevo Testamento fue prohibido y que su hermano, Jaime de Enzinas, había sido condenado a la hoguera en Roma en 1547 por protestante), se rehízo la portada eliminando su nombre. Con todo no debió resultar fácil vender esta traducción, pues a su muerte se reutilizó el texto manipulando la portada y el colofón. Así existe emisión con idéntico título, con portadilla con el escudo imperial de Carlos V, y la leyenda en la parte inferior: Apud Guillelmum de Millis (Medina del Campo?), 1554. Y tras esta Birkmann, que debió de comprar los ejemplares restantes a Porres, aprovechó para difundir también en ámbitos hispanos esta traducción, para lo que cambió la portada, eliminó el prólogo dedicado a Carlos V e incluyó uno propio en el que explicitaba al lector su intención de estampar la traducción castellana del resto de las vidas de hombres ilustres. Remataba la obra con su colofón: «Acabose de imprimir las vidas de los ilustres & excelentes Varones Griegos y Romanos pareadas, en la ciudad Imperial de Colonia, a costas de los Herederos de Arnoldo Birkmann. Año MDLXII» (Las descripciones pormenorizadas en BERGUA CAVERO, 2006: 215-216). Lo más destacado es que tuvo que adscribir la traducción a un tal Juan Castro de Salinas. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[with] DIO CASSIUS. Rerum Romanum a Pompeio Magno ad Alexandrum Mamaeæ, Epitome authore Ioanne Xiphilino... [with] DIO CASSIUS. Romanae Historiae Ultimi Libri Tres...

      Three works bound in one volume, 8vo, (viii), 182, (2), 79, (1); 357, (3); xxviii, 186 pp. Printers' woodcut to each title page, second work cut close to the top margin with some loss of page numbers and headline, brief old inked inscriptions to the first two title pages. Bound in 20th century half vellum over marbled boards, black morocco spine labels detailing only the first work.Herodian's history, first printed 1502, was edited by Henri Estienne using the Latin of Angelo Poliziano. It was dedicated to the English poet and courtier Sir Philip Sidney, whom Estienne had befriended some years earlier. The second publication Estienne had dedicated to Sidney, "...he was concerned lest Sidney should be dissipating his intellectual gifts in the futile life of the court, and begins his dedication with three lines adapted from an epistle of Horace warning him against throwing away the gifts Apollo gave..." (Buxton). The second part is the editio princeps of Zosimus' history, albeit only the first two books. Described by Gibbon as "a very questionable judge of merit", Zosimus wrote in Constantinople around 500 AD. The second work is also an editio princeps, of Xiphilanus' abridgement of books 61-80 of Dio Cassius' history, originally produced in the 12th century and the only source for this part of the work. It is beautifully printed by Robert Estienne (Henri's father) almost entirely in the Grec du Roi type designed for him by Garamond. Three years earlier Estienne had first published the surviving text of the rest of the work. The third work, a later printing of Cassius Dio's history, is, like the Herodian and Zosimus, printed in double column, Greek and Latin parallel. A splendid collection of three early historians.

         De Disciplinis Libri XX. in tres Tomos distincti.

      - Lyon, J. Frellon, 1551. 20 Bl., 613 S. Mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titel. Moderner Halbleder mit Rückenschild. Erste in Frankreich gedruckte Ausgabe und vierte Ausgabe insgesamt (zuerst Antwerpen 1531), hier noch mit dem in späteren Ausgaben meist fehlenden dritten Teil. - Hauptwerk des spanischen Humanisten und die wohl bedeutendste Pädagogik der Zeit. "Nicht um bloße Erziehungsfragen handelt es sich da, die pädagogischen Erörterungen sind hineingestellt in allgemeine philosophische Betrachtungen über Wesen und Entwicklung der Wissenschaften, ja der ganzen Kultur" (Moog, Gesch. d. Päd. II, 109). Der erste - analytische - Teil behandelt die Ursachen für den Verfall der Wissenschaften. Die fünf Bücher des zweiten Teils sind der eigentlich konstruktive Teil. Vives entwirft hier ein dreistufiges Curriculum gelehrter Bildung: vom 7.-15. Lebensjahr Pflege der klassischen Sprachen, der Religion und Moral; vom 15.-25. Jahr Einführung in die Philosophie, Rhetorik, Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften. Bei letzteren fordert er anstelle der scholastisch-aristotelischen Buchstabengelehrsamkeit die dem wahren aristotelischen Geist entsprechende direkte Untersuchung der Natur durch das Experiment. Schließlich ab dem 25. Jahr das eigentliche akademische Studium. Der in späteren Ausgaben meist weggelessene dritte - exemplarische - Teil enthält hierzu in näherer Ausführung einige Abhandlungen zur Logik und Metaphysik (De prima philosophia; De censura veri; De instrumento probilitatis etc.). "Alles in allem . ein bedeutsames Zeugnis für den Verfall des alten artistischen Lehrplanes und für die Bemühungen, aus Altem und Neuem aufzubauen, vor allem auch für den Versuch der Begründung auf psychologische Erwägungen, nicht zuletzt für das Vordringen der Naturwissenschaften im Lehrplan" (Dolch, Lehrplan des Abendlandes 232). Vives' Ideen waren von großem Einfluß auf die einige Jahrzehnte später entstehende Jesuiten-Pädagogik und auf Comenius. - Palau 371.657; Baudrier V, 224; Adams V 948. - Gebräunt u. leicht stockfleckig, die ersten u. letzten 4 Bl. mit Randläsuren.

         La libraria

      Gabriel Giolito de Ferrari. 12mo. 72 leaves. With the printer's device on the title-page and on leaf F12v.(bound with:)- - -. La seconda libraria...Al s. Ferrante Caraffa. Venezia, [Gualtiero Scoto], 1551 (At the end:) Venezia, Francesco Marcolini, June 1551. 12mo. 112, (8) leaves. Scoto's device on the title-page and Marcolini's device at leaf K11v.Contemporary vellum with manuscript title on the spine, ties lacking, lightly darkened, on the front pastedown is printed the bookplate of the lawyer Francesco Bubani, two manuscript entries in the text at leaf A9v-r and a note on the back fly-leaf ("giulii de la moneta di Pisa", the initials "MFB" are stamped on the lower blank margin of the title-page, first title a bit worn, some light dampstains, but still a genuine copy in good condition.I:) SECOND ENLARGED AND REVIDED EDITION printed by Giolito in the same year of the first edition. The main differences between the first and this second edition are: in the title-page "all'altre lingue' was changed to "dall'altre lingue'; the entries were augmented from 158 to 170 (what obliged the printer to add several more lines in a page to maintain the same collation); the name of Ludovico Domenichi was suppressed in the catalogue of the authors; at the end of a notice (l. 43v of the first edition, l. 44 of the second) is added a short note clearly addressed against Domenichi, even though his name is not explicitly mentioned; the last two leaves, blank in the first edition, contain in the second Doni's so-called "Saying of the Mule' ("La diceria della Mula'), already printed in his Lettere of 1547.With the "first' Libraria, Doni tried to create a catalogue of all books in Italian issued from the times of Gutenberg to his time. The work is generally credited to be the first bibliography of Italian literature and also as the first catalogue of Italian "books-in-print' (cf. A. Quondam, Dal libro manoscritto all'editoria di massa, in: "Letteratura italiana. Produzione e consume", Torino, 1983, pp. 622-631)."Non stupisce, pertanto, che un tale entusiasta del "secreto' di "Giovanni da Magonza', oltretutto dotato di una appuntita sensibilità nell'intuire le grandi risorse dell'editoria moderna, abbia potuto concepire e realizzare l'impresa della Libraria, anzi delle "Librerie', ovvero l'ambizioso progetto di "dar cognizione di tutti i libri stampati vulgari', ... La crescita tumultuosa dell'attività editoriale, così ben espressa dalle parole dello Sbandito appena riportate, per cui si moltiplica a dismisura l'offerta e la disponibilità di libri sul mercato, induce lo scrittore fiorentino, già editore in proprio e stretto collaboratore di editori importanti, a concepire un'opera di frontiera, che si pone, almeno a tutta prima, come un tentativo di "ordinare il disordine', ma che è anche una riflessione sul modo e del senso del "fare letteratura' nell'età in cui la stampa ne ha del tutto rivoluzionato i meccanismi della produzione, della diffusione e della fruizione... Nel 1550, giunto da un paio d'anni a Venezia, Doni pubblica presso il suo primo editore veneziano di riferimento, Gabriele Giolito, la Libraria, seguita, forse nello stesso anno, forse nel 1551, da una nuova edizione, per il medesimo Giolito e fratelli. Le "Librarie' Giolitine son, per l'appunto, un catalogo di autori e libri in volgare (comprensivi di traduzioni dal latino, pubblicati fra la fine del Quattrocento e gli anni Cinquanta del Cinquecento. Questo fu il vero, e circoscritto, scopo iniziale, per il quale non si prevedeva un seguito, se non nei termini di successivi aggiornamenti al passo con la produzione di nuove stampe; insomma; insomma, non mi sembra del tutto inappropriato di definire la Libraria del 1550 come una sorta di moderno "catalogo dei libri in commercio' " (P. Pellizzari, "Per dar cognizione di tutti i libri stampati vulgari": la "Libraria' del Doni, in "Nascita della storiografia e organizzazione dei saperi", E. Mattioda, ed., Florence, 2010, pp. 43-45; see also G. Castellani, "Non tutto ma di tutto': "La Libraria' del Doni, in: "La Bibliofilia", 114/3, 2012, pp. 327-352).Very important is also the sixth section of the Libraria, entirely devoted to music. Doni was thus among the first to publish a list with printed music. The section opens with a dedicatory letter to the Franco-Flemish composer and organist, whom Doni asks to obtain from some French musician a listb of music printed in France (cf. J. Haar, The "Libraria' of Antonfrancesco Doni, in: "Musica Disciplina", 24, 1970, pp. 101-123).Edit 16, CNCE17683; Universal STC, no. 827609; S. Bongi, Annali di Gabriel Giolito de' Ferrari da Trino di Monferrato stampatore in Venezia, (Rome, 1890-1895), I, pp.297-298; G. Castellani, op. cit., pp. 335-337; C. Ricottini Marsili-Libelli, Anton Francesco Doni, scrittore e stampatore, (Florence, 1960), no. 22.II:) FIRST EDITION. In the Seconda Libraria Doni lists Italian manuscripts that he has personally examined (cf. P. Pellizzari, La novella come cornice: la "Seconda libraria' del Doni, in: "In Verbis", I/2, 2011; pp. 101-122 and J. Bradbury, Anton Francesco Doni and his "Librarie': Bibliographical Friend or Fiend?, in: "Forum for Modern Language Studies", 45, 2009, 90-107).Of great interest in the Seconda Libraria is the description of the contemporary Italian academies (leaves 106-113). "... è con Marcolini che Doni può realizzare le sue opere più originali e meno canoniche, stravolgendo il sistema dei generi letterari in contrasto con l'affermazione di una più rigida normativa di matrice aristotelica. Questa nuova fase è inaugurata proprio dalla Seconda Libraria, apparsa nel 1551 e riedita nel 1555, che registra i manoscritti di opere in volgare, per i quali, pertanto, il lettore non ha alcuna garanzia della loro esistenza se non quella offerta dal redattore. E infatti.. l'infiltrazione di opere e di autori del tutto inventati è assai alta, benché non assoluta. Una parte della Seconda Libraria, poi, contiene una sorta di censimento delle Accademie italiane, in cui, con la consueta perspicacia, Doni mostra di aver colto la nuova portata e consistenza di questa istituzione" (P. Pellizzari, op. cit., p. 45).Another interesting issue is his "fedele' version of Machiavelli's novella Belfagor Arcidiovolo, also known under the title and Il demonio che prese moglie, of which he pretended to have had "l'originale in mano' (cf. B. Moriconi, Le metamorfosi di un arcidiavolo. Evoluzione e trasformazione del personaggio di Belfagor da Machiavelli a oggi, Diss., Rome, 2012, pp. 58-59).Edit 16, CNCE 17686; Universal STC, no. 827616; S. Casali, Gli annali della tipografia veneziana di Francesco Marcolini, (Forlì, 1861), pp. 191-202, no. 83; G. Castellani, op.cit., pp. 337-340; C. Ricottini Marsili-Libelli, op. cit., no. 32.ANTON FRANCESCO DONI was born in Florence, the son of a scissors-maker and second hand dealer. The first extant reliable information on him is that after 1535 he joined the religious order of the Servi di Maria in the Florentine convent of the Santissima Annunziata, taking the name of brother Valerio. During his stay there Doni became a friend of the sculptor Giovannangelo Montorsoli, a disciple of Michelangelo. In 1540 they both left Florence and the convent and moved to Genoa; the following year Doni transferred to Alessandria, where he stayed with Antonio Trotti and Isabella Guasco. In 1542 he spent shorter periods in Pavia and Milan, and then moved to Piacenza to begin studying law. Very soon, however, he gave up juridical studies and followed his inclination for literature. In Piacenza Doni joined the Accademia degli Ortolani, a group of intellectuals with whom he shared a very polemical, anti-classical attitude. Among its most prominent members were Giuseppe Betussi, Girolamo Parabosco, and Lodovico Domenichi. To Domenichi in particular Doni was bound by a very close friendship, following him to Venice, where he was introduced to Pietro Aretino and where he published the first book of his Lettere as well as the Dialogo della Musica (1544). Soon afterwards Doni travelled back to Florence, where he began to take part in the meetings of the Accademia degli Umidi. In 1546 he became secretary of the Accademia Fiorentina and, with the aid of Cosimo I de' Medici, duke of Florence, tried to establish a printing house of his own. The business turned out to be disastrous, however, and lasted only from 1546 to 1548. In this period Doni published approximately twenty texts closely connected with the activities of the Accademia Fiorentina. In 1548, after the failure of his printing house, Doni broke off his relations with the Florentine milieu leaving Florence once and for all and, after a violent quarrel whose reasons remain obscure, ending his personal relationship with Domenichi. Back in Venice, Doni edited the first Italian version of Thomas More's Utopia, translated by Ortensio Lando (1548). Healso had begun a close collaboration with the printer Gabriele Giolito with the publication of the Disegno (1549), a book concerned with the primacy of figurative art. In 1550 Giolito published three further volumes by Doni: Fortuna di Cesare, Prima Libraria, and Medaglie. In his writings from 1549 onwards Doni often mentions the Accademia Pellegrina. However, this is neither the name of an existing institution (as it was believed until recently), nor the designation of a project for the creation of a new community of intellectuals; Doni's Accademia Pellegrina is simply a literary fiction and an important element of the setting of his works. Doni's most productive period coincided with the years 1551-1553, when he was a collaborator of the printer Francesco Marcolini, who during this triennium printed many of Doni's major works: the Seconda Libraria (1551), the Zucca (1551-52), the Moral Filosofia (1552), the Marmi (1552-53), the diptych Mondi-Inferni (1552-53), the Pistolotti amorosi (1552). In 1555 Doni suddenly left Venice and went to Urbino, where he wanted to obtain the patronage of Duke Guidobaldo II della Rovere with the aid of Pietro Aretino. Aretino, however, refused, and to take revenge for what he considered a betrayal, in 1556 Doni wrote a very aggressive book, the Terremoto (Earthquake), in which he predicted that his former friend would die before the end of the year – exactly as happened. Between 1557 and 1558 Doni stayed in Ancona, where he tried to open a new printing house, but he was soon compelled to leave because of an edict of Pope Paul IV which ruled that all those who had left the priesthood should return to their convents. There is no clarity regarding the details of the following three years of Doni's life. However, between 1562 and 1563 he was certainly in Arquà, where he planned a monument in honour of Petrarch, which was never built. In 1562 Giolito printed Il Cancellieri dell'Eloquenza, Il Cancellieri della Memoria, the Dichiarazione sopra il XIII cap. dell'Apocalisse, and the second revised edition of the diptych Mondi-Inferni with the new title Mondi terrestri, celesti e infernali. In 1564, Le Pitture was published in Padua by the printer Grazioso Percaccino. This work collects the invenzioni, or allegorical descriptions of love, fortune, time, sleep, and death, which Doni had created to adorn the projected monument dedicated to Petrarch. In 1567 Doni and his son Silvio moved to Monselice, near Padua. In the same year he composed the Lumiera, a short poem that takes up themes from the main works of the 1550s. The following year, Giorgio de' Cavalli printed an updated edition of the Mondi in Venice, the last before Doni's death. Doni's works enjoyed great success throughout Europe and were soon translated into other major European languages: Spanish (Zucca en español, 1552), English (The Moral Philosophy of Doni, 1570), and French (Les Mondes célestes, terrestres et infernaux, 1578, 1580, 1583). In July 1574 Doni returned to Venice, where he offered Henry III of Valois the precious manuscript of a poem in ottava rima, the Guerra di Cipro. This is the last known fact of Doni's life. He died soon after, in September 1574 – still in Venice, according to some sources, or back in Monselice, according to other (cf. P. Pelizzari, Nota biografica, in: "Doni, I Mondi e gli Inferni, Torino, 1994, pp. LXIX-LXXXIV)..

Sin embargo, la diferencia de tipos y la ausencia de los elementos decorativos existentes en las ediciones anteriores hicieron suponer, primero a Antoine Renouard y luego a Amstrong(1), que esta edición fue más bien el resultado del trabajo que pudo realizar una vez que pudo contar con prensas en su nuevo taller ginebrino. En esta edición, curiosamente, Estienne dispuso en paralelo al texto griego dos versiones latinas diferentes: la de Erasmo y la vulgata, justificando en el prefacio al lector (f. aii-v) la presencia de esta última con el argumento de que, como la versión latina de la vulgata seguía siendo la más familiar a los lectores, su presencia era de utilidad para quienes se iniciaban en el griego. Pero la principal innovación editorial de esta edición de 1551, la que hace de ella la pieza singular que es, fue presentar el Nuevo Testamento por versículos, algo que, como recordaría años más tarde su hijo Henry Estienne, se le ocurrió mientras iba de viaje a caballo a Lyon. El objetivo de Estienne fue poder establecer el paralelismo entre las versiones por el contenido de los textos en vez de por páginas o líneas, como se había hecho en ocasiones. Pero el resultado fue la transformación de un texto que desde el siglo XIII se transmitía estructurado en capítulos en el universo de citas de su contenido. Estienne había dado con una pauta que en adelante será recogida por todas las Biblias, con la manera de recordar las citas que se harán de ella, con un marco de referencia mental para [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
