        I romanzi di M. Giovan Battista Pigna.

      Vincenzo Valgrisi. In 4to (cm 22); pergamena rigida recente, taglio marmorizzato; pp. (4), 174, (2 bianche), (24). Marca tipografica al titolo. Ottima copia marginosa.PRIMA EDIZIONE di questo importante trattato teorico sul poema cavalleresco, apparso nel 1554 poco dopo che G.B. Giraldi Cinzio, di cui il Pigna era stato allievo, pubblicasse il suo Discorso intorno al comporre dei romanzi, venendo accusato dall'allievo di plagio. I due continuarono a scambiarsi lettere di accuse e smentite per alcuni anni a seguire, ma questa polemica, che alimentò la celebre controversia sull'Ariosto, risulta oggi di scarso interesse, in quanto la teoria del romanzo espressa dal Pigna, benché anch'essa tragga spunto da Aristotele, si rivela ad una attenta analisi parzialmente diversa da quella del Giraldi. Inoltre dalla prima stesura dell'opera, che nel 1547 l'autore diciassettenne probabilmente sottopose al giudizio del Giraldi, alla versione definitiva, l'opera crebbe e subì cambiamenti radicali. "Les premières tentatives de codification du roman eurent lieu en Italie, au début de la deuxième moitié du XVIe siècle, au cours d'une importante querelle qui opposa les partisans des anciens, favorables à l'épopée telle qu'elle avait été définie par Aristote dans la Poétique , aux partisans des modernes, favorables aus poèmes chevaleresques (appelés également ''romans'') et dont les exemples les plus significatifs étaient à l'époque le Roland amoureux de Boiardo, le Roland furieux de l'Arioste et l'Amadis de Bernard Tasse[...] Jean Georges Trissino, le plus influent des représentants des anciens, favorable en outre à une interprétation rigide de la Poétique d'Aristote, affirme en effet dans l'épà®tre dédicatoire à Charles Quint de son poème héroique L'Italie délivrée des Goths, publié en 1547 et en 1548, avoir voulu dans cette oeuvre (en polémique avec la multiplicité d'actions des poèmes chevaleresques) décrire une seule action d'un seul homme[...] Trois importants théoriciens ont répliqué, quoique d'une façon indirecte, à Trissino: Simon Fornari, en 1549, dans sa Brève apologie du ''Roland furieux'' considéré dans son ensemble, Jean-Baptiste Giraldi, en 1554, dans son Discours sur la composition des romans, et Jean-Baptiste Pigna, toujours en 1554, dans Les Romans. Fornari et Pigna ne polémiquent toutefois nullement contre le Stagirite et s'efforcent au contraire de démonstrer que les poèmes chevaleresques (et, en particulier, le plus significatif d'entre eux, le Roland furieux de l'Arioste) peuvent fort bien être convenablement interprétés à l'aide de catégories aristotéliciennes. Giraldi, par contre, affirme que les règles d'Aristote ne peuvent être valables dans le cas du roman, étant donné que ce sous-genre narratif n'était pas encore né à l'époque où le Stagirite s'interrogeait sur la spécificité de la poésie, de la littérature" (G. Giorgi, a cura di, Les poétiques italiennes du "roman". Simon Fornari, Jean-Baptiste Giraldi Cinzio, Jean-Baptiste Pigna, Paris, 2005, pp. 11-13). Sia Pigna che Giraldi condividono una grande ammirazione per l'Ariosto e considerano il romanzo, ossia il poema narrativo in versi, come un genere nuovo, tipicamente italiano e significativamente diverso dal poema epico degli antichi. Mentre l'epica celebra le gesta di un singolo uomo, il romanzo presenta una maggior varietà di personaggi, luoghi ed azioni. Questo tuttavia non implica "il declassamento dei modelli epici, prodromo della querelle des anciens et des modernes, bensì un nuovo rapporto tra il sistema delle regole descritto nella Poetica di Aristotele e la pratica della scrittura: un rapporto non statico, dato una volta per sempre, come pretendevano i critici del romanzo [Minturno, Speroni, Trissino, ecc.], ma aperto e disposto a riconoscere la sostanziale novità delle opere moderne" (G.B. Pigna, I romanzi, a cura di S. Ritrovato, Bologna, 1997, p. XXXI). Dopo aver discusso del romanzo in generale nel libro I, soffermandosi soprattutto sul concetto di imitazione e insistendo sull'idea di piacere che la difficulté vaincue provoca nello spettatore/lettore, nei successivi due libri Pigna analizza sistematicamente l'Orlando furioso e le commedie dell'Ariosto. Nel libro II l'analisi parte dai dati autobiografici dell'autore e dai rifermenti storici contemporanei presenti nell'opera. Nel libro III lo stile dell'Ariosto viene invece esaminato in dettaglio da un punto di vista retorico e grammaticale (cfr. B. Weinberg, A History of Literary Critisism in the Italian Renaissance, Chicago, 1961, pp. 433, 444-452, 963-968). In particolare vengono scelti un centinaio di passaggi del poema e per ciascuno di essi si forniscono le varianti precedenti e i motivi che hanno indotto il poeta alla scelta definitiva. Questa critica delle varianti (cfr. W. Binni, Storia della critica ariostesca, Lucca, 1951, pp. 11, 15-16) permette al Pigna di dare una concreta conclusione al suo discorso, chiarendo la forma "da per sé" del romanzo, e rivelando, infine, "come si scrive romanzevolmente". Giovanni Battista Pigna, originario di Ferrara, studiò nella sua città sotto Lilio Gregorio Giraldi, Alessandro Guarino, Francesco Porto e Vincenzo Maggi. A vent'anni divenne insegnante dello Studio di Ferrara e più tardi segretario, cancelliere e storiografo di Alfonso II d'Este. Pubblicò una raccolta di versi latini (1553), un'opera intitolata Il duello (1554), un trattato sull'onore e le qualità del gentiluomo, un trattato politico (Il Principe, 1561), una difesa della poetica dell'Ariosto, una storia della casa d'Este (1570) e un commento alla poetica di Orazio (1561).

In addition to common fish, the plates include eels, sharks, skates, squids and an octopus. Although the present volume is called "liber primus," no more ever appeared.With a contemporary manuscript note on 2B6v. From the library of W.A. Foyle (Beeleigh Abbey), with his gold-tooled red morocco bookplate. Washed and with the title-page somewhat worn, marginal repairs to some leaves, occasionally reaching the plate edge but not the pictorial image, minor and mostly marginal foxing. Binding a bit soiled and the lower corner of the front board damaged. Still a good copy, and with generous margins.

        Mercurii Trismegisti Poemander, seu De potestate ac sapientia divina; Aesculapii definitiones ad Ammonem regem.

      Paris, [Guillaume Morel] , Adrien Turnèbe, 1554. - Deux parties en un volume in-4 (193 x 133) de (4)ff., 103 - 126 pp., (1)f. blanc. Abondante annotations manuscrites à un feuillet. Mouillures sur le tiers inférieur de plusieurs feuillets (44), galeries de vers dans la marge inférieure des feuillets du milieu d'ouvrage, sans atteinte au texte. Veau marbré du XVIIIème, double filet doré en encadrement sur les plats, dos à nerfs orné, roulette dorée intérieure, tranches rouges . Mors sup. fendus (sur 3 cms), extrémités des nerfs frottées. Édition princeps en grec du Corpus hermeticum. Durant le Moyen Âge, l'Europe ne connut de la philosophie hermétique que l'Asclepius, jusqu'à ce que soit redécouvert un manuscrit des textes grecs attribués à Hermes Trismegiste. Cette découverte en Occident d’un manuscrit byzantin du Corpus hermeticum rapporté par un moine à Florence mit le cercle des humanistes en émoi. Cosme de Médicis le fit aussitôt traduire par Marsile Ficin (1433-1499) et ce, avant même d’entreprendre la traduction de Platon. Marsile Ficin, qui les interprétait comme une prophétie païenne du christianisme contemporaine de la période mosaïque, en donna une traduction latine qui fut imprimée pour la première fois en 1471 dans son Liber de potestate et sapientia Dei : le premier de ces textes portait en titre le nom de l'un des personnages évoqués, Pimandres (littéralement « esprit de divine puissance »). Le manuscrit transmettait un savoir occulte sur la religion, l’astrologie, la magie et la mystique. Il s’agit d’un recueil de 17 brefs traités anonymes, composés en Égypte du IIe au IVe siècle de l’ère chrétienne. Il débute avec le Pimandre (le Pasteur des Hommes, l’un des noms d’Hermès), qui donna longtemps son titre à l’ensemble. Il est suivi de l’édition princeps de l’Asclepius, ou Discours parfait, offrant lui aussi une vue d’ensemble de la gnose hermétique païenne. (Legrand, Bibliographie hellénique des XVe et XVIe siècles, I, n°131 : «Livre d’une excessive rareté»). La traduction latine de Marsile Ficin occupe la seconde partie de l’ouvrage. Brunet (III, 1646) précise qu’elle ne figure pas dans tous les exemplaires. Remarquable édition, exécutée avec les fameux «grecs du Roi». Les caractères gravés par Garamond, sont inspirés de l’écriture d’Ange Vergèce, parangon de l’élégance calligraphique. Ce dernier est l’auteur de l’épître liminaire adressée à l’helléniste Lancelot de Carle, évêque de Riez. L’impression rehaussée de bandeaux et de lettres ornées est due à Guillaume Morel ; Adrien Turnèbe, successeur de Robert Estienne comme imprimeur du roi en grec, n’étant pas imprimeur. [Greek: Poimandres. Asklepiou oroi pros Ammona Basilea]. First edition in the original greek of the fundamental text of the Corpus Hermeticum Caillet 5094 ; Brunet III, 1646.

Os volumes incluem a seguinte cronologia: 1º volume de 1554 até ao ano de 1561; 2º volume de 1561 até ao ano de 1567; 3º volume de 1568 até ao ano de 1574; 4º volume: do ano de 1575 até ao ano 1578. Obra resultante do labor da Academia Real de História Portuguesa, sendo as gravuras colocadas em cada volume da autoria de Vieira Lusitano e alusivas à criação desta mesma academia. Cada um dos quatro tomos da obra abre com a gravura conhecida como 'gravura da Academia', designada eruditamente como Restituet Omnia, sobre a qual Júlio de Castilho fez um comentário: «[.] sobre um plinto alto vê-se o Génio de Portugal, em trajo romano, coroado de Rei, com duas enormes azas nas costas, e segurando debaixo do braço esquerdo o escudo português ovado; com a mão direita anima, tocando-lhe com o sceptro, uma grande figura a dominante do quadro, e que toma de pé a linha central perpendicular da composição. Esta figura é a História. Traja túnica e peplum, corôa-se de rainha, enfia no antebraço direito uma grinalda de hera, alegorica às tradições vetustas, e levanta nessa mão uma romã, simbolo do agrupamento dos indivíduos que formam a sociedade humana. Na mão esquerda sustenta uma lima, indicativa do indispensável apuro e castigo critico das pesquisas históricas, e uma corrente, com que a História está agrilhoando o Tempo, que aos pés lhe ajoelha em ar submisso. Ao fundo vê-se, entre arvoredo, o templo da Memória, e duas figuras escrevendo: uma, História Eclesiástica, e a outra, História Secular. Ao lado direito, no primeiro plano, os nossos dois rios principaes, o velho Tejo, com o dragão brigantino por distintivo, e o Douro, mais novo, mais vigoroso, com os seus pampanos e cachos, e oferecendo à grande figura oiro a plenas mãos, para realização dos seus commetimentos litterarios. No alto um Génio alado fazendo esvoaçar a uma fita que diz: RESTITUET OMNIA». Estas Memórias do reinado de D. Sebastião contêm detalhes e pormenores dos despachos da Corte portuguesa que só são passíveis de ser conhecidos perante a presença da documentação original, entretanto perdida no Terramoto de 1755. Por exemplo, a vinda secreta de São Francisco de Borja a Lisboa no Verão de 1557 a pedido do Imperador Carlos V. Nesta época Borja já era tido como santo e profetizou a ocorrência de algo que podemos hoje decrever como um 'tsunami' em Lisboa (vide pág. 77). O Imperador delineou o projecto de interromper a descendência real portuguesa após a morte de D. Sebastião e assim não deixar prosseguir a descendência da Coroa portuguesa fora da sua linhagem (vide pág. 81). A história confirmou este projecto imperial depois da «morte» de D. Sebastião em África. Aliás, nesta obra, Dom Sebastião não morre (vide Tomo IV págs. 412 a 421) apenas «envolto na b [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        LA CHRONICA DEL PERU, NUEVAMENTE ESCRITA, POR PEDRO DE CIEÇA DE LEON, VEZINO DE SEVILLA

      Antwerp: Juan Steelsio, 1554. [8],285,[9] leaves. Woodcut illustrations. 12mo. 19th-century red morocco by Thibaron-Joly, spine gilt with raised bands, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Very good. One of two 1554 Antwerp editions of Cieza de León's highly regarded history of Peru, and the earliest obtainable edition, following the first edition in Spanish printed in Seville the previous year. The author, the foremost soldier-chronicler of the conquest, served under Pedro de La Gasca in his campaign against Gonzalo Pizarro during the civil war in Peru in the years following the conquest. "After the end of the civil war, he travelled extensively throughout Peru in order to collect information on both the conquest and the Inca world, with the clear intent of writing the first major history of Peru. When he returned to Spain in 1550, he managed to publish only the first part of his work...a thorough description of the land and people of Peru. It includes both the cities founded by the Spaniards, such as Lima and Quito, and the first documented descriptions of Inca cities and their customs. His wealth of information is the result of personal observation, the scrutiny of reports and official papers, and oral reports from Quechua Indians" - Delgado-Gomez. Considered the earliest history of the entire viceroyalty of Peru, LA CHRONICA... is illustrated with numerous woodcuts, several of which appear multiple times. In addition to images of building activities, possibly derived from earlier works on European architecture and monuments, the illustrations include images of the devil, indigenous animals, the former Inca capital of Cuzco, Lake Titicaca, and Potosí. "A European vision of America sometimes enhanced by fantastic elements. In one of them, the devil, believed to be hard at work in the New World, is shown as he keeps the inhabitants from leading a virtuous Christian life, and in another, Lake Titicaca, located on the desolate Andean altiplano, looks curiously like a canal in the city of Venice. The illustration of the Cerro de Potosí, the fabled "silver mountain" of the Indies, is an exception. Because it was based on an original drawing done by the chronicler himself, it more accurately depicts the real place" - Johnson. EUROPEAN AMERICANA 554/15. SABIN 13046. MEDINA, BHA 163. 1553 edition: FIELD 314. JOHNSON, THE BOOK IN THE AMERICAS 32. DELGADO-GOMEZ, SPANISH HISTORICAL WRITING ABOUT THE NEW WORLD 26.

        Catullus et in eum commentarius M. Antonii Mureti. Venetiis, Apud Paulum Manutium Aldi filium MDLIIII. Cum privilegio Pontificis maximi, & Senatus Veneti.

      apud Paulum Manutium, Aldi Filium, Venezia, 1554 - In 8° (17.5 x 11,5 cm); [4], 134 [i.e. 136], [2] ff , la numerazione delle cc. 95 e 96 è ripetuta. Segn.: *4 A-Q8 R10. Marca tipografica aldina al frontespizio e in fine. Esemplare raro e ancor più raro a trovarsi in queste buone condizioni di conservazione ed in più appartenuto e chiosato da un noto umanista. Bella legatura coeva in piena pergamena con unghie e residui di lacci. Piccolo tarlo al dorso. Titolo manoscritto al dorso. Piccola ed ininfluente traccia di tarlo, abilmente restaurata, nella parte inferiore bianca delle carte 69-87 (non tocca mai il testo). Leggera ininfluente arrossatura al margine esterno delle carte 63-69 e all'angolo inferiore delle ultime quattro carte. Raro esemplare di aldina in legatura originale, ad ampi margini ed in parte ancora in barbe. Ex libris del grande umanista senese Adriano Politi manoscritto al frontespizio; due firme anticamente cancellate che attestano la proprietà anche alla nota collezione privata di volumi di Alfonso Landi. Interessanti note manoscritte coeve di Landi e Politi al margine esterno bianco di diverse pagine. Prima edizione col commento di Marc'Antonio Mureto, poi ripubblicata nel 1558 e 1562 insieme con Tibullo e Properzio, dell'opera del grande poeta latino originario di Verona ma legato alla città di Sirmione sul lago di Garda, Gaius Valerius Catullus. Muret, celebre umanista francese era giunto nel 1554 in Italia, dove rimase fino al 1585, anno della sua morte. Qui pubblicò e lavorò a diverse opere che incontrarono il favore del mondo culturale italiano della seconda metà del cinquecento. Il commento a Catullo fa parte della prima produzione letteraria del Mureto dopo il suo arrivo in Italia, dove trovò protezione in seguito alla fuga dalla Francia per le accuse di pratiche immorali che gli erano state mosse nella sua patria. "Como podemos ver en fol. 24 v° y siguientes, a esta primera edición de Muret (no, como se cree, a las posteriores) se debe la famosa inclusión, contra la autoridad de los códices, de los poemas priapeos XVIII, XIX y XX", Ana Pérez Vega, José Solís de los Santos, La Antigüedad en el Fondo Antiguo de la Biblioteca de la Universidad de Sevilla, 2011. Il volume è di particolare interesse rispetto alle altre copie conosciute per le note e l'appartenenza all'erudito senese Adriano Politi (Siena 1542 - Sarteano 1625) che segretario di diversi cardinali passò buona parte della sua vita a Roma. Politi fu un grande sostenitore della parlata senese pubblicando nel 1603 una celeberrima traduzione in lingua senese delle opere di Tacito (1603; 10a ed. 1665) e, successivamente, un Dittionario toscano (1614; 10a ed. 1691) che all'epoca della loro uscita furono causa di un acceso dibattito negli ambienti letterari italiani. Cfr.: BM STC It., p. 161; ADAMS C-1145; Renouard, Annales de l'imprimerie des Alde, Paris, 1825, pp. 389-90, n° 19 : "J'ai de ce livre un exemplaire en grand papier. La Bibliothèque Bodléienne à Oxford en a un de même en grand papier"; BRUNET, I, 1682 : "4 ff. prél. 136 ff. cotés jusqu'à 134, parce que les chiffres 95 et 96 sont répétés, et 2 ff. à la fin".

Based largely on classical authorities, in particular Aristotle, it also includes results of the author's own observations through experiments and anatomical investigations. It remained the standard reference work in ichthyology for over a century.

Niccolo Fontana Tartaglia (1499-1557), born in Brescia, was an Italian mathematician who originated the science of ballistics which he first treated in his earlier work Nova Scientia. The first two books in the Quesiti consist of dialogues on this subject, the first with the cannon founder Alberghetto di Alberghetti, the third book is on gunpowder, the fourth on military formations in battle, the fifth on the geometer's compass is a dialogue with his friend Richard Wentworth, Henry VIII's envoy in Venice (the entire book is dedicated to Henry VIII of England), the sixth, as noted, on fortifications, the seventh and eighth are on mechanics and the final ninth book is on problems in arithmetic and ends with the famous correspondence with Cardan on their rival claims to have been the first to solve cubic equations.

        OMNIUM CAESARUM VERISSIMAE IMAGINES EX ANTIQUIS NUMISMATIS DESUMPTAE.Libri primi. Editio altera

      Aeneas Vicus Parm. F., [Venice: Paulus Manutius] 1554 - Second edition (a reissue of the 1553 first edition) of the Latin translation of Le Imagini con tutti riversi trovati et le vite de gli imperatori tratte dale historie de gli antichi. Libro primo (1548). Small quarto (8.5 x 5.875 inches; 227 x 150 mm). [71] leaves (letterpress and engravings interleaved): letterpress comprising 1 leaf with two addresses to the reader by Antonio Zantani (1509-1576) and 11 (of 12) leaves of biographical sketches, all with historiated woodcut initials, and 16 leaves index (signed A-D4); engravings comprising the engraved title within an architectural border, 12 pages of engraved cartouches with portraits of the emperors and details of their persons, and 65 (of 72) pages of engravings of coins and medals, all drawn and engraved by Enea Vico (1523-1567). The engravings are partly printed on both sides. This copy is lacking the biographical sketch for Claudius (1 leaf), and seven pages of engravings (on four leaves) of coins and medals for Domitianus. Early calf, quite worn, and suffering from red rot. The joints are cracked and the upper portion of the spine is missing. The engraved title is soiled and creased, strengthened on the verso at the outer edge, and mounted on a stub. A few additional leaves are mounted on stubs, and a few have been strengthened at the outer edge. Light to moderate foxing and browning, dampstaining to the lower portion of the text block, minor worming to the lower blank margin of about ten leaves. This work deals with the portraits and lives of the first twelve Roman emperors and all of the reverses of their coins and medals that the authors had found, arranged by the metal from which they were struck: gold, silver, or bronze. The Latin editions contain substantial alterations and additions to the 1548 Italian edition, including ten additional pages of engravings of coins and medals, Antonio Zantani's addresses to the reader, and an index. Although "Libri primi" appears on the titles, no second book was published. This edition does not have the dedication to Pope Julius III by Eneo Vico present in the 1553 edition. Shelved in Case #4. Dupont. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Ethica sive Moralia opera, quae in hunc usque diem de Graecis in Latinum conuersa extabant, uniuersa, a Iano Cornario nunc primum recognita, & nouorum aliquot librorum translatione ab eodem locupletata: ita ut qui haec habuerit, eum bibliothecam habere iure dici possit

      apud Mich. Isingrinum [Isengrin], 1554. In-folio (332x215mm), ff. (42), 270 [i.e. 271], legatura antica in m. pergamena e angoli con titolo in oro su tassello al dorso e piatti rivestiti in carta decorata a motivi floreali. Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Marca tipografica al titolo con una palma fra i cui rami s'intravede una pietra e la scritta Palma Ising entro cornice polilobata. Dedica a stampa al Vescovo di Basilea, Filippo di Gundelsheim. Capilettera xilografici istoriati, in parte ricavati dall'Alfabeto della Morte di Holbein. Indice tricolonne preliminare. Antche note di possesso al titolo. Alcuni dei nomi dei traduttori (Erasmo, Simone Gryneo, il Pirckheimer, Melantone, il Cornarius, ecc.), talora sgraditi alla Chiesa cattolica in quanto protestanti, risultano cassati a penna nei titoli e nel testo. Qualche arrossatura fisiologica. Ottimo esemplare. Rara e pregiata cinquecentina di Basilea della traduzione latina (le versioni sono dovute a diversi umanisti, tra cui Erasmo) degli "Ethiká", o "Moralia" di Plutarco. Nonostante la titolazione (che fu data in realtà soltanto nel XIII secolo da Massimo Planude, che per primo li raccolse in un corpus organico), l'opera esorbita dalla pura trattazione di filosofia morale, finendo con l'abbracciare questioni di religione, politica, scienze naturali, letteratura, medicina. Graesse, V, 362; VD 16, P-3679. Manca all'Adams e a STC German. Latino
