         Celeberrimi Commentarii in regulas Iuris Pontificii. Cum adnotationibus iurisconsultorum clarissimorum Nicolai Boerii, Caroli Molinaeai, Francisci Cornelli, et Gabrielis Sarainae.Lugduni, apud Antonium Vincentium, 1558.

      Lugduni, apud Antonium Vincentium 1558 - Pp. (36) 290 (2). Preceduto da: DECIUS PHILIPPUS. In tit. ff. De regulis iuris, cum additionibus. Caroli Molinaei, unaque recens analyticis adnotationibus D. Gabrielis Saraynae. Lugduni, apud Antonium Vincentium, 1561. Pp. (56) 432. Due opere in un volume di cm. 16,5. Legatura antica in piena pelle con dorso a 5 nervi; tagli spruzzati. Esemplare un po' corto nel margine superiore con rifilatura che interessa qualche parola nei titoli in testa alle pagine. Minime mende e spellature alla legatura, qualche trascurabile alone marginale e macchiette sparse, peraltro nel complesso esemplare ben conservato. Filippo Decio (1454-1535), celebre commentatore civilista e canonista, insegnò a Pisa, Pavia, Siena, Padova e Roma. Ebbe come discepoli uomini di grandezza indiscussa come Leone X, Cesare Borgia e soprattutto Francesco Guicciardini. Questi commentari sulle regole di diritto civile rappresentarono un punto di riferimento non solo per la dottrina strettamente giuridica, ma divennero ben presto modello per chi al diritto s'avvicinava senza spirito tecnicista e piuttosto con finalità politiche. Assai ricercato ed importante. Dino del Mugello, glossatore civilista della seconda metà del Duecento fu maestro di Cino da Pistoia ed Oldrado da Ponte e verosimilmente autore del titolo De regulis iuris del Liber Sextus di Bonifacio VIII. L'opera fu il modello ideale proprio per la dottrina di Filippo Decio. Quest'edizione raccoglie le annotazioni di Boerius e Molinaeus (in questo esemplare insolitamente non censurate), due fra i più stimati giureconsulti della prima metà del Cinquecento francese. Entrambe le opere ricercate ed importanti. Cfr. Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         1558 Description of GREECE Pausanias Greek Geography Mythology Roman Pine Trees

      Lugduni : Apud Sebastianum De Honoratis, M.D.LVIII. [1558]. - 1558 Description of GREECE Pausanias Greek Geography Mythology Roman Pine Trees Pausanias was a 2nd-century Greek traveler and geographer who’s famous ‘Description of Greece’ is one of the earliest reports on ancient Greece from a first-hand view. Each portion of the work is dedicated to a different region of Greece focusing on more than just topography. Pausanias sought to merge many of the Greek and Roman traditions he was pulled between in his writing through sketches of culture and customs as well as linking mythological and philosophical aspects of both cultures. This book has commentary on Greek landscapes, wild animals such as deer and boar, and Pausanias gives personal details of the Roman pine trees – a tree that has been iconic and symbolic for centuries to Rome. According to Andrew Stewart, on Pausanias’s writing, he was “A careful, pedestrian writer.interested not only in the grandiose or the exquisite but in unusual sights and obscure ritual. He is occasionally careless or makes unwarranted inferences, and his guides or even his own notes sometimes mislead him, yet his honesty is unquestionable, and his value without par” (Stewart) This 1558 printing was the first two be printed in two volumes and only the second to see publication. Only two issues of this work were published during the 16th-century. An incredibly rare work!

      Basel, Froben, 1558. - Folio, circa 35,5 x 24 cm. 6 Bll., 1213 SS., 1 Bl., mit zwei grossen Druckermarken Blindgeprägtes Schweinsleder d. Zt. auf Holzdeckeln VD 16, E 2931; Bezzel 1009; Van der Haeghen I, 100. Insgesamt vierte Ausgabe der Briefe des Erasmus, die teils schon bei der Abfassung nicht nur für den jeweils konkreten Empfänger, sondern gleich für das allgemeine Publikum und die Nachwelt bestimmt waren. Eine erste Sammlung erschien 1538, die folgenden wurden immer wieder erweitert und hier sind nun sowohl neue Vorreden als auch einige Briefe ergänzt, so dass die vorliegende Auswahl nun auf 1231 Briefe kommt, die in 28 Büchern sortiert sind. Enthalten sind auch Schreiben bedeutender Humanisten an Erasmus bzw. ganze Briefwechsel zwischen ihm und Freunden mit den jeweiligen Erwiderungen in beide Richtungen. Beispielweise die Briefe von und an Guillaume Budé enthalten auch lange griechische Passagen. - Das vorliegende Exemplar stammt aus einer Jesuitenbibliothek (wo Erasmus vermutlich kein Hausheiliger war), der Titel mit Besitzvermerken und teils entfernten Stempeln. Im Text vereinzelt Anstreichungen oder kurze Notizen in Bleistift (20. Jh.), sonst meist sauber und frisch mit schönen relativ breiten weissen Rändern. Einband berieben, Schliessen entfernt, dennoch recht dekorativ.

         Ornithon sive Aviarium M Varronis Pyrro Ligorio neap inv

      1558 - Acquaforte, 1558, nella parte inferiore della stampa, al centro, "Ornithon sive Aviarium M Varronis Pyrro Ligorio neap inv", più in basso, "Romae MDLVIII/Michaelis Tramezini formis". La bella tavola mostra la ricostruzione delineata da Pirro Ligorio della celebre Uccelleria di Varrone, in latino Ornithon o Aviarium, nella sua villa a Cassino, descritta dall’autore nel suo trattato "De re rustica" (Libro III, V-VI), e pubblicata per la prima volta da Michele Tramezzino a Roma nel 1558. Come per altre lastre basate su lavori di Ligorio ed edite da Tramezzino, è plausibile, anche per evidenti ragioni stilistiche, che anche in questo caso l’incisore sia Jacob Bos. Sono note due copie di questa lastra edite una a Venezia da Bolognino Zaltieri, e l’altra a Roma da Claudio Duchetti, a firma Ambrogio Brambilla. Huelsen, che non conosce questa edizione di Tramezzino, considera l’edizione di Zaltieri come originaria, e quella di Duchetti una copia successiva. In realtà, alla luce di questa tavola con l’excudit di Tramezzino e la data 1558, è evidente che questa prova è quella originaria, realizzata durante il periodo di collaborazione tra Pirro Ligorio e l’editore Tramezzino. Questa tiratura è di estrema rarità. Le copie edite da Duchetti si trovano, invece, inserite nello Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "stella nel cerchio", margini bianchi aggiunti, come consuetudine per questa tipologia di incisioni, in ottimo stato di conservazione Etching, 1558, Lettered within image "Ornithon sive Aviarium M Varronis Pyrro Ligorio neap inv", "Romae MDLVIII" "Michaelis Tramezini formis". The plate shows the reconstruction by Pirro Ligorio of the aviary of Marcus Varro, in Cassino, that the author described in De re rustica (Libro III, V-VI), and published for the first time by Michele Tramezzino. It's persuasive that the engraver of the plate is Jacob Bos, as for other works by Ligorio published by Tramezzino. Are known two copies of this plate published respectively in Venice by Bolognino Zaltieri, and in Rome by Claudio Duchetti, this last with Ambrogio Brambilla signature. Huelsen, who evidently didn’t know the Tramezzino’ edition, regarded that one by Zaltieri as the original from which Brambilla's plate published by Claudio Duchetti in Rome in 1581 was copied. Good impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with "star in a circle" watermark, white margins added at the time, in very good conditions. Very rare early plate by Ligorio and Tramezzino. cf.

         In omnes Apostolicas epistolas, divi videlicet Pauli XIIII. et VII. canonicas, commentarii Heinrychi Bullingeri. accesserunt ad fine quoque duo libelli, alter de Testamento dei unico & aeterno, alter vero de Utraque. in Christo natura. Zurich, apud Christophorum Froschouerum,

      1558 - Froschauer's fine woodcut device on both titles, woodcut initials, some large.2 vols in one. Folio. (323 x 200mm). [20]ff. 731pp. 195pp. Contemporary blind-tooled pigskin over bevelled wooden boards, covers panelled with fillets and outer historiated roll of the muses Calliope, Thalia, Euterpe und Terpsichore and inner roll of medallion heads, leafy stamps in panels, clasps and catches remain, title lettered in ink at head of fore-edge (lower cover with tear but no loss). Froschauer's edition of the Swiss reformer Bullinger's commentary on the Apostolic Letters includes as an appendix his De testamento seu foedere Dei unico et aeterno(A Brief Exposition of the One and Eternal Testament or Covenant of God). This important and highly influential treatise was the first devoted to covenant theology. It had first been published by Froschauer in a separate octavo edition of 1534 (VD16 B9722) and subsequently it is only repeated in his five folio editions of the Apostolic Letters (1537, 1539, 1544, 1549 & 1558 - see VD16 B9723-9727), all of which are rarely found. Charles S. McCoy and J. Wayne Baker in Fountainhead of Federalism: Heinrich Bullinger and the Covenantal Tradition(1991) argue that Bullinger's covenant doctrine, which went far beyond Zwingli's, was seminal for the further development of covenant or federal theology and the creation of federal political philosophy. ?It is the first work that organizes the understanding of God, creation, humanity, human history and society around the covenant. It must be regarded therefore as the point of origin or the fountainhead of federalism as it has increasily come to permeate the world in the four and a half centuries since its publication?.The present edition is scarce outside continental libraries and no copies are located by OCLC in the U.S.A.Provenance: Ownership inscription inside front-cover dated 1566, a few marginal annotations and underlinings.VD16 B4974, B9727 & B9740. Adams B3240. Ref: J. Wayne Baker, in, Oxford Encyclopaedia of the Reformation, I, pp. 227-230) ?His most distinctive doctrine was his theology of the covenant. Bullinger taught that there was only one covenant in history, from Adam to the present. God formed his people by means of the covenant. In Old Testament times one became a member of the covenanted community through circumcision, and in New Testament times through baptism. The covenant was bilateral and conditional. God promised to be all-sufficient for those who kept the conditions of the covenant. These conditions, faith in God and love of neighbour, had never changed in history. Therefore, even though all things became clearer with the advent of Christ, there was a unity of the people of the two eras as well as a untiy of the Old and New Testaments, the New Testament being nothing but the interpretation of the Old. The pattern for the Christian community was thus found in the Old Testament: the pastor was the successor of the prophets, and the magistrate was the successor of the kings. Therefore the magistrate alone, like the Old Testament kings, had the authority to establish religion and to discipline the Christian community. The covenant not only allowed Bullinger to defend infant baptism against the Anabaptists, but it also instructed his thought about divine grace, the importance of the law, the nature of the Christian community, and the process of history. Such a broad presentation went far beyond Zwingli's; though the two men had similar ideas on the covenant and the Christian community, Bullinger developed these ideas independently and more fully.?

         Shviley Emunah. [Paths of Faith].

      Riva di Trento Yakov Markaria 19 November 1558 - First edition, quarto (20.5 x 15.5 cm). 130 leaves; leaves 40 to 50, leaf 71, leaf 78 and leaf 125 misnumbered. Two leaves lacking and supplied in manuscript. 11 astronomical diagrams in text, ink annotations to front free endpaper, two Christian censor's annotations passing the book and dated July 1599 and 1629 to final leaf, hand written dedication on first page dated 1909; ink library stamp of Max Septimus to title and verso of final leaf. Modern full calf; spine sunned. First edition of highly important collection of eclectic Kabbalah essays. An exhaustive treatise on philosophical, scientific and theological subjects. The work consists of ten chapters covering various topics such as: God and his qualities; the creation and order of the world; human anatomy, physiology and pathology; rules for enjoying good health and long life; the soul and its functions; the redemption of Israel; and the resurrection and afterlife. Meir Ibn Aldabi was a 14th century Rabbi, philosopher, doctor and writer, son of Isaac Aldabi, "He-Chasid" (The Pious), grandson of Asher ben Yechiel (the Rosh), and a descendant of the exiles from Jerusalem. His name is ascertained from this text, his chief work, wherein a poem is found in which every line begins with a letter of his name, and there it reads "Aldabi". Shviley Emunah considered being his most important work. Aldabi belonged to the class of popular writers who, possessing extensive theological and scientific knowledge, commented upon the assertions of their predecessors with a clear understanding, expressing here and there their own opinions, and presenting some subjects from the standpoint of the Kabbalah. Aldabi was also one of those Talmudists whose conception of religion was wholly spiritual and who revered the Kabbalah, he cannot, however, be called a true Kabbalist. In 1360 he wrote Shvilei Emunah, which judging by its numerous editions, was for centuries a favourite book with the educated. The book is signed by two Christian sensors on its last printed leaf. The oldest inscription in brown ink reads (in Italian): "Checked by my Brother Luigi da Bologna July 1599". On pages 525-526 some words in the text are crossed out using the same ink.

         Magiae naturalis, sive de miraculis rerum naturalium libri IIII

      Naples, Matthias Cancer 1558 - Aux origines de l’hermétisme moderne et de la magie naturelle Première description de la chambre noire. Première édition, rare, de ce texte paradigme des savoirs de la Renaissance qui contient, entre autres, la toute première description de la chambre noire ou camera obscura, autrement dit la description du premier dispositif technique permettant la projection d’une image. A l’instar de son contemporain Jérôme Cardan, Porta, en réaction au modèle et à la méthode aristotélicienne, s’intéresse, comme l’indique le titre de l’ouvrage, aux irrégularités, merveilles et secrets inexpliqués du monde naturel. Les quatre livres contiennent « des formules de médecine hermétique, des secrets de beauté, des recettes pour améliorer les produits du sol, des renseignements sur les teintures et les encres de sympathie, des tours de physique » (Dorbon 3731, à propos de la traduction de Rouen, 1620) ; et plus généralement, des observations sur des thèmes variés comme la géologie, l’optique, la médecine, les poisons, la cuisine, la métallurgie, le magnétisme, les parfums et cosmétiques, la poudre à canon, la cryptographie, etc. « Porta’s first book, published in 1558 as Magiae naturalis, was a treatise on the secrets of nature, which he began collecting when he was fifteen. The secrets are arranged in four books, and the conception implied in the title is that natural magic is the perfection of natural philosophy and the highest science. This small collection of secrets constituted the basis of a twenty-book edition of the Magiae naturalis published in 1589, which is Porta’s bestknown work and the basis of his reputation. It is an extraordinary hodgepodge of material representing that unique combination of curiosity and credulity common in the late Renaissance. But combined with the author’s insatiable desire for the marvelous and apparently miraculous is a serious attempt to define and describe natural magic and some refined application of both mathematical and experimental techniques in science. » (DSB) Bel exemplaire à l’intérieur très frais dans une élégante reliure à l’imitation. Dorbon et Caillet ne citent que des éditions postérieures. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         In Dioscoridis de medica materia libros quinque enarrationes eruditissimae

      Balthazar Arnoullet pour Thibault Payen 1558 - In-8 de (80) [dont 2 feuillets blancs préservés], 807, (1) et (17) pages ; basane du XVIIe siècle, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges (mors fragiles, reliure uniformément frotté). Première édition illustrée des commentaires de Joao Rodrigues, dit Amatus Lusinatus, sur la Materia Medica de Dioscoride. Importante botanique médicale richement illustrée de petits bois dans le texte qui corrige et enrichit le texte de Dioscoride par la description de nombreuses plantes empruntées à la tradition arabe. Rodrigues, médecin et chirurgien d'origine juive-espagnole, fut le rival, en botanique et matière médicale, de Mattioli en tant qu'éditeur et commentateur de Dioscoride. En 1558, date de la seconde édition illustrée augmentée de Mattioli de la Materia Mecida, celui-ci publia une virulente Apologia contre les travaux de botanique d'Amatus Lusinatus dont l'édition originale définitive et non illustrée de ses commentaires avait paru à Venise en 1553. Rodrigues y critiquait vivement Mattioli pour plagiats et erreurs. Malheureusement, la renommée et l'influence immense qu'eurent les éditions de Mattioli firent tomber en disgrâce Rodrigues : "Through charges levelled by Mattioli, Amatus (whose name Mattioli persisted in altering to Amathus, meaning simpleton) was hunted from place to place by the Inquisition. He finally obtained refuge in the Jewish colony in Salonica, but lost his livelihood, his reputation, and the manuscript of the translation of Avicenna that he had nearly completed" (Anderson, An illustrated history of the herbals). L'édition de 1558 constitue donc la dernière et seule édition illustrée du commentaire de Rodrigues sur Dioscoride. DSB, VIII, pages 554-555. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Legatura coeva piena pergamena con unghia, tassello in pelle con tit. oro al dorso.

Sul frontesp. della "Ragione" la figura del gufo appollaiato sopra un vaso rovesciato con la scritta "Kekrika". Prima edizione di entrambe le opere, riunite in questo prezioso esemplare. Ben nota è la polemica, "più che letteraria guerra", che originò questi due aspri libelli. Alle critiche mosse dal Castelvetro alla sua canzone "Venite a l'ombra dei gran gigli d'oro", scritta in lode della Casa di Valois per incarico del card. Farnese nel 1553, il Caro rispose con la "Apologia" che ridicolizza e sbeffeggia l'avversario, accusato anche di assassinio e di eresia, tramite una serie di sonetti satirici e violentissimi, i famigerati "Mattaccini" (pp. 226-232), seguiti dalla "Corona" (pp. 237-241). Ottimo esemplare di illustre provenienza: dal British Museum, col timbro "Sale Duplicate 1787" al verso del primo titolo-frontespizio.Si dispone anche di una prima edizione della sola opera del Caro, rilegata in pergamena ottocentesca con raffinate bordure impresse a secco ai piatti (eeuro; 1.100).

         The Alcoran of Mahomet, translated out of Arabique into French ... and newly Englished, for the satisfaction of all that desire to look into the Turkish vanities.London, 1649. Small 4to (17.5 x 13.5 cm). 18th-century calf, rebacked and with new endpapers.

      ESTC R200453; N. Matar, Islam in Britain, 1558-1685, pp. 80-81. First edition of the first English translation of the Quran. The translation is generally ascribed to the Scottish clergyman and translator Alxander Ross (ca. 1590-1654), because a small text included at the end bears his name. Ross didn't know Arabic, and based his translation entirely on the French translation of 1647 by the orientalist and diplomat André du Ryer (ca. 1580-1660), thus inevitably incorporating Du Ryer's faults and misinterpretations. The book starts with a preface by the translator to "the Christian reader", followed by the preface of the French translation by Du Ryer and "a summary of the religion of the Turks": a brief treatise on Islamic worship, prayers, pilgrimage and the Ramadan. It continues with some recommendations, a table listing the Quran's chapters, and full text of the Quran. At the end is added "The life and death of Mahomet" and a text entitled "A needfull caveat or admonition for them who desire to know what use may be of, or if there be danger in reading the Alcoran ", mentioning Alexander Ross as the author. This text, the preface and even the translation itself are interesting sources of the English or perhaps western view of Islam in the 17th century.With marginal annotations and underscoring in black ink in English, and a, slightly shaved, early owner's inscription at the head of the title-page. Title-page thumbed and slightly stained in the inner gutter, slightly browned throughout, margins slightly thumbed, and a tiny wormhole in the margin of the last 50 pages. Overall in good condition.

         LES SINGVLARITEZ DE LA FRANCE ANTARCTIQVE, AVTREMENT NOMMEE AMERIQUE...

      Aanvers [i.e. Antwerp]: De l'imprimerie de Christophle Plantin..., 1558. [8],163,[1] leaves. 20th-century red calf, spine gilt. Light rubbing to extremities. Bookplates on front pastedown. Light soiling, minor foxing. Very good. One of the foundation works of New World discovery, containing one of the first extensive descriptions of Canada, one of the three classic accounts of Brazil in the 16th century, and some of the best early illustrations of American Indians and American animals (including the first depiction of the buffalo). Thevet originally went to the New World with the Villegagnon expedition in 1555 to colonize Brazil. The whole first section of this work is devoted to Brazil, and with the narratives of Lery and Staden, it ranks as one of the great early accounts of that country, its natives and fauna. The latter includes one of the first descriptions of tobacco, which Thevet is generally credited with introducing to France upon his return. Borba de Moraes calls this volume "a book of the greatest importance to Brazil." It is equally important as one of the first works relating to Canada, which Thevet claims to have visited after coasting north during his return from Brazil to France. Thirty pages are devoted to a description of Canada and Newfoundland, preceded in date of publication only by Cartier, and Ramusio's description of Cartier. "One of the rarest of Canadiana, only a few copies are known. In this book one finds one of the earliest accounts of Newfoundland, and a first account of the fauna and flora in Canada" - Lande. There are extensive descriptions of the natives, their dress and way of life. Much of this information is probably based on Cartier. Another primary point of interest is the woodcuts which adorn the text. These excellent illustrations, evidently from life, are some of the earliest illustrations of American Indians and American animals. The Brazilian scenes accurately depict Indian ceremonies, warfare and customs. The Canadian Indian plates show the use of snowshoes in hunting. The first depiction of the buffalo is the most celebrated of the natural history plates, but there are many others. These illustrations were extensively copied, especially by De Bry, and many became the points of origin for New World iconography. This is the first Antwerp edition of Thevet, issued the year after the extraordinarily rare Paris 1557 edition. There is another Paris edition of 1558 as well. This was one of the first books printed by the celebrated Plantin family of printers. All three early editions are very rare. STREETER SALE 21. LANDE 833. BORBA DE MORAES, p.858. CHURCH 108.

Esemplare nel probabile secondo stato di due, con la data corretta in 1559; tuttavia un primo stato con la data 1558 non è citato nelle bibliografie. Magnifica prova, ricca di toni, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scala nel cerchio con stella", rifilata al rame e con margini coevi aggiunti, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Grande rosa dei venti nel Mar Germanico affiancata da stemmi e galeoni, compasso, cartiglio e titolo con descrizione allineati lungo il margine inferiore. La carta è una riduzione della mitica mappa murale del Mercator, pubblicata circa nel 1540 a Louvain. La prima derivazione di questa mappa fu pubblicata a Roma da Michele Tramezini nel 1555, e quindi è probabile che lo Zenoi vide questa carta e decise di pubblicarne una variante per il florido mercato veneziano. La data nel cartiglio è chiaramente corretta, con l’aggiunta di un numero alla fine più grande; per questo motivo ipotizzo che debba sicuramente esistere uno stato antecedente della mappa. Domenico Zenoi fu attivo incisore e stampatore di mappe, come anche di scabrose tavole erotiche che più volte gli causarono problemi con le autorità veneziane. È possibile che lo Zenoi, in origine alle dipendenze dello stesso Forlani, acquistò il materiale cartografico del veronese per integrarlo in qualità di editore. Tra le poche notizie certe sull’attività dello Zenoi, vi è quella della richiesta inoltrata al Senato Veneto, poi accordato nel 1566, di un privilegio per l’incisione delle stampe. Freschissima impressione di questa importante mappa delle Fiandre. Etching and engraving, 1558, without signature. Example of the second state of two, with the date 1559, even the map with the date 1558 is unknown. A magnific impression on conmtemporary paper with " stair in a circle with star" watermark, trimmed to the platemark and with the usual margins added, in very good conditions. A faithful reduction of the great map in 4 sheets by G. Mercator, of 1540. One of the three known variants by Domenico Zenoi [Cenoi, Zenoni, Zeno]. Two known editions, of which this is one, the date is stated within the cartouche. A third edition dated 1559 has the dates stated just outside the cartouche description. Very nice impression of this rare map. Tooley, Italian Atlases, 200; Bury, The prints in Italy, p. 236. Dimensioni 505x420. Dimensioni 505 420mm [Attributes: Soft Cover]
