         Les Discours De L'Estat De Paix et De Guerre, De Messire Nicolas Machiauelli, Secreataire & Citoyen Froentin, sur la premiere decade de Tite Liue, traduict d'Italien en Francoys.

      A Paris. Printed by E. Groulleau pour Iean Longis & Nober6t le Mangnyer. 1559.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo, in8's, 16.5cm, [xxiv],279,[1]p., printer's vignette on the title page and author's portrait vignette on final colophon leaf, decorated initial letters, in 18th century full mottled calf, floral gilt decorated spine panels, crushed dark crimson label, marbled endpapers, edges stained red, name crossed out in ink on the bottom title margin, a fine clean sound copy of the first French edition and the first foreign translation of any language, only one copy (this one) located in the auctions records, very rare. (cgc). No copies of this edition listed on WorldCat. Title translation: The Speeches of the State of Peace and War, Niccol di Bernardo dei Machiavelli (Italian:[nikko'l? mmakja'v?lli]; 3 May 1469 21 June 1527) was an Italian diplomat, politician, historian, philosopher, humanist, and writer of the Renaissance period.[1][2] He has often been called the father of modern political science.[3] He was for many years a senior official in the Florentine Republic, with responsibilities in diplomatic and military affairs. He also wrote comedies, carnival songs, and poetry. His personal correspondence is renowned in the Italian language. He was secretary to the Second Chancery of the Republic of Florence from 1498 to 1512, when the Medici were out of power. He wrote his most renowned work The Prince (Il Principe) in 1513. "Machiavellianism" is a widely used negative term to characterize unscrupulous politicians of the sort Machiavelli described most famously in The Prince. Machiavelli described immoral behavior, such as dishonesty and killing innocents, as being normal and effective in politics. He even seemed to endorse it in some situations. The book itself gained notoriety when some readers claimed that the author was teaching evil, and providing "evil recommendations to tyrants to help them maintain their power".[4] The term "Machiavellian" is often associated with political deceit, deviousness, and realpolitik. On the other hand, many commentators, such as Baruch Spinoza, Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Denis Diderot, have argued that Machiavelli was actually a republican, even when writing The Prince, and his writings were an inspiration to Enlightenment proponents of modern democratic political philosophy.[5][6][7] In one place, for example, he noted his admiration for the selfless Roman dictator Cincinnatus. .

Johann Sleidan (1506-1556), reputato uno dei più grandi storici tedeschi, ebbe atteggiamenti critici verso Carlo V che infatti, non a torto, lo considerava un avversario.

Verosimilmente prima edizione completa dei ventisei libri. L'edizione originale del 1555 uscì in 25 libri, quest'edizione presenta il ventiseiesimo postumo nonché il De quatuor summis imperiis. Cfr.

         Grande documento notarile in latino su pergamena

      Si tratta di Alfonso II, duca dal 26 Novembre 1559 al 1597. Mentre Ippolito era il secondo Cardinale d'Este, celebre mecenate delle arti, edificatore di Villa d'Este a Tivoli e saccheggiatore della vicina Villa Adrianea, Ercole II d'Este (1534-1559) aveva concesso un Decreto di Esenzione e Immunità a Francesco, figlio del fu Andriolo de' Albertosi, il quale decreto fu rinnovato allo stesso Francesco tramite il Conte Niccolò Estense Tassone Commiss. Gen. dell'Ill.mo e Rev.mo Hippolyto II Estense Card. e a quel tempo Signore di Brescello. Del cui Decreto e Conferma ecco il tenore: Niccolò Estense Tassoni Comm. Gener. di Ippolito II Diacono e Card. di Milano Signore di Brescello come appare dalle lettere patenti anno 1545 Gennaio. Con l'Ill.ma Signora Margherita Estense possiedono possedimenti: uno posto nel territorio di Brescello denominato il Passo Lavorino oltre l'Enza di biolche 100 lungo il fiume Enza, terra episcopale di Parma, da un lato; da due terre del Comune di Brescello dall'altro, libero ed esentato da ogni tipo di vincolo pubblico e privato. Ora gli Albertosi chiedono il rinnovo del decreto che è relativo al podere di 100 biolche di cui sopra e concede immunità ed esenzioni a riguardo di lavoratori, braccianti, bifolchi e altri inservienti e specialmente libertà dalle tasse sul boccatico, ovvero macinato, sul sale, le spelte e da una quantità di altri obblighi cui erano vincolati i possessori o affittuari di terre in quell'epoca. Il decreto viene riconfermato alla famiglia Albertosi in "Ampla Forma" dal Car. Ippolito II d'Este. Condizioni complessivamente buone anche se, essendo stato ripiegato anticamente numerose volte per comodità, presenta dei tagli lungo le linee di piegatura ma senza perdite di testo..

Leggero alone e sporadiche arrossature. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Baldassarre Castiglione (1478-1529) è ritenuto uno dei più eleganti scrittori italiani della prima metà del Cinquecento. Questa celebre opera è dedicata alla figura del cortigiano; attraverso una prosa efficace l'A. mira a delineare l'arte di compiacere la corte e di rendersi graditi al principe. L'opera, a testimonianza ulteriore del grande successo raggiunto, ricevette numerose traduzioni in Europa e divenne un testo politico di riferimento.

         Notabilia supra Guidonem scripta (.) ab excellenti Medicinæ dilucidatore Gomino Ioanne Falcone, Montispessulana Academiæ Academiæ Decano.

      Jean de Tournes 1559 - In-4 de 8 ff.n.ch., 614 pp.ch., 1 f.n.ch. ; veau brun, dos à nerfs, filets en encadrement sur les plats, grand médaillon Renaissance au centre (reliure de l'époque, dos refait). Cartier, 440 ; NLM, 1421 ; Sybille von Gültlingen, IX, p. 209, n° 459 (cite 7 exemplaire, dont un incomplet). Nouvelle édition augmentée. L'ouvrage propose la paraphrase des annotations sur la Chirurgie de Guy de Chauliac (v. 1298-1368) publiées entre 1515 et 1537 sous le titre de Le Guidon en françois. Cette nouvelle édition, préfacée par Ihoradus Alardus, médecin de Bourget (Savoie), comporte les annotations à Chauliac rédigées en français, tandis que les citations (auteurs classiques, Hippocrate, Galien et les médecins arabes) sont en latin. Jean Falcon fit ses études à Avignon, puis s'établit à Montpellier, où il enseigna et fut Doyen de la Faculté (1529). Il a donné une traduction de Chauliac – imprimée en 1520, 1534 et 1537 – dont l'originalité est d'être présentée comme un dialogue entre un professeur et ses élèves. On trouve relié à la suite : MONTEUX, Jérôme de. Commentaire de la conservation de santé, et prolongation de vie. Faict en Latin. [et] nouvellement traduict de Latin en François par maistre Claude Valgelas, docteur en Medecine. Lyon, Jean de Tournes, 1559. In-4 de 4 ff.n.ch., 295 pp.ch., 8 ff.n.ch. Cartier, 445 ; NLM, 3296 ; Sybille von Gültlingen, IX, p. 210, n° 466. Édition originale de la traduction française. L'édition latine a paru chez Jean de Tournes en 1557 (cf. Cartier, 374 ; NLM, 3285 ; Gültlingen, p. 196, n° 386). "Ouvrage curieux où se trouvent résumées toutes les notions de médecine domestique et d'hygiène en cours à cette époque" (Cartier). Jérôme de Monteux, médecin du Dauphiné (1518-1559), fit ses études à Montpellier, exerça à Lyon, soigna Catherine de Médicis lors de sa première grossesse et resta attaché au dauphin François, avant d’être nommé médecin conseiller par Henri II. Praticien habile et hygiéniste averti, on lui attribue les premières observations de lésions syphilitiques du tissu osseux. Réunion de deux belles impressions de Jean de Tournes, ornées de quelques figures gravées sur bois dans le texte et de jolies lettrines. Restaurations sur les plats ; quelques auréoles marginales.

         1559 Famous Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle Medieval Greek Philosophy Moral Virtues

      Lugduni : Apud Ioannem Frellonium, 1559. - 1559 Famous Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle Medieval Greek Philosophy Moral Virtues “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Aristotle The “Nicomachean Ethics” is considered the most important historical philosophical work – it is known to have had important impacts on the Middle Ages as a founding piece in medieval philosophy. In this work, Aristotle’s best-known work on ethics, Aristotle seeks to separate the difference between practical and theoretical living; encouraging readers to embrace living the best possible lives rather than just discussing what that looks like. This work stirred controversy for centuries, however. Even during the times of Bacon and Hobbes, philosophers would argue that Aristotle’s views on ethical living were interfering with their own philosophies. Aristotle makes many valid arguments in “Ethics,” but few resound more than these: • Be of virtue, deserving the highest of praise • Have the justice and fairness of a good ruler • Show practical judgment • Be a truly good friend Aristotle was the first philosopher to write a treatise on ethics. Because there were no preexisting expectations on what ‘ethical living’ meant, he decided to ‘start with what would be roughly agreed to be true by people of good up-bringing and experienced in life.’ (Kraut) Item number: #1162 Price: $1250 ARISTOTLE Aristotelis Stagiritae Peripateticorvm [peripateticorum] Principis Ethicorum ad Nicomachum libri decem.

      Frankfurt, Egenolffs Erben, 1559. - 4°, circa 20,3 x 17,3 cm. 16, 86 num. Bll., mit Titelholzschnitt und vielen Textholzschnitten Moderner grüner Lederband VD 16 ZV 26109. Eine von zwei textidentischen Fassungen aus dem selben Jahr (die andere mit einem Tetrastichon auf der Titelrückseite, die hier leer blieb). Der aus Sterzing stammende Goltwurm (1524-1559; auch latinisiert Athesinus) studierte ab 1539 an derUniversität WittenbergbeiMartin LutherundPhilipp Melanchthon. Im Anschluss begab er sich nachMarburg, wo er 1541 eine Hofpredigerstelle annahm und 1546 Hofprediger beiPhilipp III. Nassauwurde. Er führte alsSuperintendentdie Visitationen der Kirchen und Schulen der Grafschaft durch und entwarf für die Grafschaft die erste Kirchenordnung. Damit gilt er als Begründer der evangelischen nassauisch-Weilburgischen Landeskirche. Goltwurm war ab 1551 auch Berater von GrafWilhelm von Nassau-Dillenburg, dem Vater vonWilhelm von Oranienbei der Umsetzung der Reformation in der Grafschaft Nassau-Dillenburg. Literarisch sind von Goltwurm einige Schriften erhalten, die eine deutliche Distanzierung von der allegorischen Schriftenauslegung der katholischen Theologie zeigen. Aus seiner Überzeugung, dass das Weltende kurz bevorstünde, deutet er in seinem ?Wunderwerk und Wunderzeichen Buch? unerklärliche Vorkommnisse als göttliches Wirken und stellt Wundergeschichten zusammen, die er aus historischen und zeitgenössischen Quellen bezieht. Sein hier vorliegender Kirchenkalender erschien in seinem Todesjahr und wurde bis zum Ende des Jahrhunderts noch neunmal aufgelegt. Die teilweise schon etwas ausgedruckten Holzstöcke stammen vermutlich aus der Cranach-Werkstatt. "- Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt, teils auch stärker und etwas fleckig, insgesamt jedoch gut erhalten.

Rare edition of the famous account of the circumnavigation by Olivier van Noort (1559-1627) in the years 1598 to 1601. Van Noort was the fourth to circumnavigate the globe and the first Dutchman to do so. His predecessors were Magellan, Drake and Cavendish. He left Holland in 1598 with four ships and orders to attack the Spanish and Portuguese and harass them in any way possible. After many adventures Van Noort returned in 1601 with only one ship and only a few dozen of his crew. Those few had survived numerous skirmishes with the Portuguese and Spanish, and attacks by natives at Puerto Deseada and Tierra del Fuego, the former described here as "zeer groot van gestalte" (very large in stature) leading to tales of giants. They suffered from scurvy and survived on penguin meat and ostrich eggs. Van Noort's story was extremely popular and as the first Dutchman to sail round the world he was revered out of national pride, even though his voyage accomplished little.With a 19th-century owner's name on an endleaf and an occasional word underlined. In very good condition. Cloth of backstrip gone and cloth frayed at the corners. Rare edition of an account of one of the earliest voyages around the world.

         La femmina di un satiro

      1559 - Acquaforte, circa 1559, priva di firma. Esemplare nel primo stato di due, avanti l’indirizzo di Camocio. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, con margini, piccole ossidazioni, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera appartiene alla serie dei Paesaggi con soggetti mitologici relativa al breve periodo veneziano del Duperac, con le influenze derivanti dalla pittura di Tiziano. Robert-Dusmenil elenca solo la prova con l’indirizzo "Apud Camocium" inserito nella pietra in basso al centro. Rarissima. Etching, circa 1559, without signature. Example of the first state of two, before the address of Camocio. A fine impression, printed on contemporary laid paper with unidentified watermark, with margins, small spots, generally in very good conditions. The work belongs to the series of landscapes with mythological subjects relating to the short period of Venetian Duperac, with influences stemming from painting by Titian. Robert-Dusmenil lists only the test with the address "Apud Camocium" inserted in the stone at the bottom center. Etienne Duperac is an architect , painter , engraver and surveyor. Towards 1559 he came to Rome, where he stayed for more than twenty years, working with compatriot Lafrery . During this period, however, reported several times in France: the Felibien reminds the author of five paintings of sea gods and of the loves of Jupiter and Callisto, were destroyed in 1967, which decorated a bathroom in the palace of Fontainebleau. Along his journey to Rome, staying briefly in Venice, a presence that is attested by some engravings for the publisher Giovanni Francesco Camocio. The work in question is related to the Venetian period, and is clearly influenced by the Venetian painting of the period , especially the works of Domenico Campagnola. However, there are also elements that lead to the landscapes engraved by Leon Davent and also by Battista del Moro and Angelo Falconetto . An extremely rare work. Robert-Dusmenil, VIII, 62.

         1559 Plutarch Moralia (Morals) in Italian, in two volumes, leather & gilt

      Gironimo Giglio, Venice 1559 - A 1559 printing of Plutarch’s Moralia in Italian, printed in Venice, in two volumes. Likely rebound in the 17th century in France based on the spine decoration. Bound in pretty speckled leather binding with great spine decoration, it will look excellent on your library shelf. This book has some provenance, inside each front board the Italian architect Luigi Carlo Daneri signed his name. A famous 20th century architect, there is even an architectural style named after him, Daneriana Architecture. About the Work - Plutarch was a Greek historian, biographer, and essayist, known primarily for his Parallel Lives and Moralia. He is classified as a Middle Platonist. Moralia is an eclectic collection of seventy-eight essays and transcribed speeches, including On Fraternal Affection—a discourse on honour and affection of siblings toward each other, On the Fortune or the Virtue of Alexander the Great—an important adjunct to his Life of the great king, On the Worship of Isis and Osiris (a crucial source of information on Egyptian religious rites), along with more philosophical treatises, such as On the Decline of the Oracles, On the Delays of the Divine Vengeance, On Peace of Mind and lighter fare, such as Odysseus and Gryllus, a humorous dialogue between Homer's Odysseus and one of Circe's enchanted pigs. The Moralia was composed first, while writing the Lives occupied much of the last two decades of Plutarch's own life. Condition of the Books - Volume 1 – 15 x 10 x 2 cm Volume 2 – 15 x 10 x 3.5 cm Volume 1 - Pages – (1) 163 in single leaf numbering (326 modern), 4, (2) Volume 2 - Pages – (1) 289 in single leaf numbering (578 modern), 3, (1) A rare use of a place ribbon in a 16th century work. See pictures. Speckled leather bindings with some wear, corners bumped. Likely over pasteboard. Someone has wrote a small index # at the top left of each front board. Light cracking at the joint. Spines are pretty with 7 compartments with floral stamps and the title and volume # in separate compartments. All edges of the text-block are sprinkled. Pastedown and end-pages have foxing where they touch the leather. The leather is soft, I find it likely that is was oiled as was the custom in libraries for many years. Name and other notes on flyleaf and pastedowns. Occasional light damp staining throughout the book, not bad. Some pages are repaired within the margin at the bottom of the age in the old way of pasting on similar paper. The first 6 pages of volume one feel as though the binding didn’t quite capture them as well as the rest of the text block, although they are holding in. 1814 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
