(&:) PERNUMIA, Giovanni Paolo (ca. 1500-60). - Philosophia naturalis ordine definitivo tradita, quod a nullo factum est... - Padova, Galignani, 1570 (colophon: 1569).

      Padova, Percacino, 1560. 2 opere in 1 vol. In-folio (30,4 x 21 cm.). Legatura del primo '800 in mezza pelle con angoli, dorso con 2 tasselli e fregi oro; lievi abrasioni ma legatura solida. Ad I: Grande marca tipografica con figura emblematica sul frontespizio ed una diversa in fine, sul verso del frontespizio ritratto in ovale del Barozzi entro un'ampia ed elaborata cornice con stemmi e figure che occupano tutta la pagina, alcuni capilettera ornati, diverse cornici a grottesche che racchiudono il teso di Euclide, e numerose figure geometriche inc. in legno n.t. (16), 272, (24) pp. Ad II: Marca tipografica sul frontespizio e 3 grandi diagrammi inc. in legno n.t. (6), 123 pp.; ambedue le opere sono fresche e ben conservate. Prima edizione in latino degli importanti commenti del filosofo greco Proclo al primo libro degli Elementa di Euclide. Rispetto all'editio princeps (Basilea 1533), il testo è qui più completo e corretto poiché l'umanista e matematico Francesco Barozzi poté utilizzare per la sua traduzione manoscritti migliori. L'edizione è anche molto apprezzata per l'eleganza tipografica. "Because of his interest in the principles underlying mathematical thought and their relation to ultimate philosophical principles, Proclus' commentary is a notable - and also the earliest - contribution to the philosophy of mathematics. Its numerous references to the views of Euclid's predecessors and successors, many of them otherwise unknown to us, render it an invaluable source for the history of science." "Barocius' edition of Proclus' commentary on the first book of Euclid's Elements was the first important translation of this work, for it was based on better manuscripts than previous efforts had been. The translation, published at Venice in 1560, was completed by Barocius at the age of twenty-two." (DSB XI, p.160, and I, p.468). Riccardi I, 82. Edit16, CNCE 33726. Adams P-2138. Mortimer, Italian, 403. Prima edizione di quest'opera del medico e filosofo padovano Pernumia che "si caratterizza per la sua sistematicità e completezza, seguendo la successione degli scritti aristotelici di filosofia della natura, come già aveva fatto nel sec. XV Paolo Veneto con la sua Summa naturalium e come avrebbero poi fatto Jacopo Zabarella e Francesco Piccolomini..." (DBI). Vedova, Scrittori Padovani, II, 83. Edit16, CNCE 47345. Adams P-713. NLM 2275008R. 2 works in 1 vol. Ad I: First edition in Latin.

Ad II: First edition of a commentary on Aristotle's natural philosophy. Printer's device on title and 3 half-page round woodcut diagrams of a system of natural philosophy. Fine and fresh copies, bound in early 19th century half calf, very slightly rubbed, red and green labels on spine.

         Libro de' pesci romani. Tradotto in volgare da Carlo Zancaruolo... -

      Venezia, Gualtieri, 1560. In-4 (19,3 x 14,6 cm.). Cartonatura rustica del '600, tassello di carta sul dorso; dorso un po' usato. Marca tipografica sul frontespizio, e 3 iniziali istoriate incise in legno. 197, (1), (2 bianche) pp.; buon esemplare marginoso. Prima ed unica edizione in italiano della prima opera del Giovio, interessante per l'ittiologia e la gastronomia (l'edizione originale, in latino, apparve a Roma nel 1524). Nel 1515 Giovio entrò a servizio del cardinale Giulio de' Medici che nel 1523 ascese al soglio pontificio col nome di Clemente VII. La vicinanza al papa fece dello storico ed umanista comasco una personalità molto richiesta alla corte pontificia e quest'opera nasce dalla sua partecipazione a feste e banchetti papali, di cui era diventato un assiduo frequentatore. Vi descrive oltre quarantacinque pesci e crostacei di mare e d'acqua dolce; di ognuno fornisce la descrizione fisica, il luogo di pesca, e in particolare le caratteristiche culinarie, con aneddoti e citazioni di Plino, Galeno, Platina e altri autori. A pagina 63 c'è un osservazione sui navigatori spagnoli e portoghesi che alle isole Canarie si rifornivano di storioni prima di affrontare l'Oceano in cerca di "nuove terre del mondo non conosciuto". Gamba 1432. Adams 637. Wood 359. Ceresoli 288. Oberlé 763. Westbury 117. BING 954. First and only edition in Italian of this important treatise on ichthyology and gastronomy.

On p. 63, mentioning sturgeons at the Canary Islands, the author makes an allusion to early voyages to the New World. Printer's device on title and 3 historiated initials, all woodcut. 17th century cartonatura rustica, small damage to spine; internally a large and fresh copy.

      Paris (Parisiis), Apud Gulielmum Guillard & Almaricum Warencore, 1560. Small 8vo. (XXXII),156,(2 blank);(24 index) p. Modern hardbound binding. 13.5 cm 'A universal chronicle which is an important source for the history of 4th-century events' (Ref: USTC 153005; Ebert 22005; Schoenemann 2,378/79) (Details: Back with 4 raised bands, and with a gilt short title in the second 'compartment') (Condition: Old inscriptions on the front flyleaf. Front flyleaf worn, thumbed and dustsoiled. Title also thumbed and dustsoiled, and with an old ownership entry and shelf number) (Note: The Latin historian Sulpicius (or Sulpitius) Severus was born in Aquitania ca. 360 A.D. He organized under the influence of Bishop Martinus of Tours a sort of monastic life on his own estate for himself and his friends. His extant works are a 'vita S. Martini Turonensis', and this 'Sacrae Historiae', a kind of universal chronicle to A.D. 402, 'which is an important source for the history of 4th-century events, (...). The whole book is an interesting attempt to present a 'breviarium' of history from the Christian point of view: it uses Christian chronographers, especially St. Jerome, but also Pagan writers. J. Bernays suggested that for the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D 70 Sulpicius followed the lost account of Tacitus. Sallust and Tacitus are his models in the matter of style'. (OCD, 2nd 3d. p. 983) § The 'Sacrae Historiae' were first published in Basel in 1556 by the Ilyrian protestant scholar Mat(t)hias Flacius, the latinized slavic name Vlacich, from a old manuscript found in a library in Hildesheim. Flacius, 1520-1575, who taught Hebrew in Wittenberg and the New Testament in Jena, was a pupil and lifelong supporter of Luther. Flacius dedicated his book to the Polish duke Nicolaus Radziuilius, who was a great patron of the Lutherans. (Neue Deutsche Biographie 5 (1961), p. 220-222) Schoenemann's opinion is that Flacius 'accurata fide hos libros exprimendos curavit'. (Schoenemann p. 378) The next edition of the 'Sacrae Historiae', this edition, appeared a few years later, in Paris in 1560. In the 32 page 'praefatio' to this edition, which is in fact a ferocious attack against Lutheranism, that brought nothing but 'latrocinia, furta, praedationes, adulteria, usurae, homicidia & id genus alia flagitia' (p. 2* recto), written by one 'Iacobus Faber doctor theologus, Sorbonicus' we are told that he (Faber) published this work to strengthen the spirit of the Catholics against the heresy of the Reformation, that was raging through Europe, and especially Germany. (p. *3 recto) Faber suggests that he found and edited the text of the 'Sacrae Historiae' himself. ('cuius sacram historiam cum in publicum omnium catholicorum commodum evulgare ex mediis antiquorum seculorum abditissimis scriniis erutam cogitaremus', p. 2*3 recto & verso) Schoeneman explains that the catholic professor of the Sorbonne was a common thief, who misappropriated the edition of his protestant precursor Flacius, without any acknowledgment. ('partam Matthiae Flacio gloriam suffurari non erubuit', Schoenemann p. 379). Schoenemann calls the praefatio of Faber nothing but 'emendicatus pannus', 'begged for rags' (pun for 'emendicatus panis'?) (Provenance: On the title: 'Conv.s ff. erem. s. Aug.ni Bruxell. 1610', indicating that the book once belonged to the convent of the Order of the Eremites of St. Augustine in Brussels. § On the front flyleaf the old names: 'Van den Boom', and 'P. v(an)d(en) Hoogen ex Horsten, 18/12/'25') (Collation: *-2*8, A-T8, V4 (last leaf V4 blank), +8, 2+4)(Photographs on request)

      Artist: Ruscelli Girolamo ca ; issued in: Venice; date: ca1560 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 18,5 x 23,5; - description: Map shows totla Russia; - vita of the artist: Girolamo Ruscelli (1518-1566) was an Italian polymath, humanist, editor, and cartographer active in Venice during the early 16th century. Ruscelli is best known for his important revision of Ptolemy's Geographia, which was published post humously in 1574. It is generally assumed that Alexius Pedemontanus was a pseudonym of Girolamo Ruscelli. In a later work, Ruscelli reported that the Secreti contained the experimental results of an ?Academy of Secrets? that he and a group of humanists and noblemen founded in Naples in the 1540s. Ruscelli?s academy is the first recorded example of an experimental scientific society. The academy was later imitated by Giambattista Della Porta, who founded an ?Accademia dei Secreti? in Naples in the 1560s.

         Conciliationes locorum scripturae, qui specie tenus inter se pugnare videntur, centuriae duae [.].

      - Bautzen, Johann Wolrab, 1560. 8vo. (8) 236 (43) lvs. Contemporary brown painted limp vellum. VD 16 A 2020; Kolde 7/m. Rare Latin edition of one of Althamer's most widely read writings. In 1527 Althamer published a refutation of a treatise by the Anabaptist leader Hans Denck (ca. 1495-1527), in which Denck had collected 40 apparently contradictory Scriptural passages. Althamer however, who added 60 further paradoxes of his own choice, showed the contradictions to be mere appearance which could be solved in a number of ways. In the years following the list of alleged discrepancies was greatly enlarged and finally the edition published in 1534 -as well as all later editions- discussed no less than 200 seemingly contradictory passages in the Bible. It went at least through 12 more editions in the sixteenth century and has also been translated in German. - Dated owner's inscription on first endpaper, library stamp and some library shelfmarks on title page, a single annotation on last endpaper, and a few old marginal annotations.

         Suite of six allegorical prints. France, c. 1560-1570

      - Six engraved prints, 3 oval, 3 rectangular, all except one white-on-black, plate size c. 80 x 65mm, sheet size 205 x 105mm, sewn together at top (trifle soiled). Three signed with variations of ?Cum privilegio regis Stephanus fecit?, second Minerva, fourth image Arithmetic, fifth Astronomy, last image ?Sacrifice of Abraham? A rare collection of individual plates by the skilled French mannerist engraver Etienne Delaune. Three are taken from his suites to illustrate the liberal arts, two are classical figures while the last is the ?Sacrifice of Abraham? from his Old Testament series. The common factor in all the prints is the exquisite execution of the mannerist borders and, as has often been noted, in his prints he shows a precision and intricacy associated with his original profession as a goldsmith.Etienne Delaune (Orléan 1518/19-1583) was trained as an engraver of medals, and worked with Benvenuto Cellini during the latter's stay in Paris from 1540-1545. By 1552, Delaune was employed as chief medallist at the royal mint, founded by Henry II, and in 1556 he furnished designs for Henry's parade armour. His extant prints consist mostly of allegorical subjects within rich, ornamental surrounds and are exeptional for their technical precision despite their often small size. Delaune's rare surviving drawings reveal the influence of Primaticcio and the school of Fontainebleau and his engravings helped to spread the Fountainebleau style among artists and craftsmen in France and beyond.

         Opusculum, in quo una oratio, & duae questiones: altera de certitudine, & altera de medietate mathematicarum continentur .

      Padua, Gratioso Perchacino, 1560 - 4to (94 x 48 mm), ff 40, with printer's device on title; small wormhole on blank inner margin of title, not affecting text, and another touching a few letters on last two leaves, a very nice, crisp copy in early patterned wrappers.First edition of this rare work on the philosophy of mathematics, and a work important to Galileo's assertion of mathematics as the foundation of scientific truth. Barozzi argues that mathematics is based on divine truth and is therefore capable of expressing philosophical certainties, a position derived from Proclus, who is quoted extensively. At the end of the Opusculum there is a reference to his translation of Proclus, which was published in the same year.'In 1560 he published Opusculum, in quo una Oratio, et duae Quaestiones: altera de certitudine, et altera de medietate Mathematicarum continentur. This was written to argue against the views of Alessandro Piccolomini on the nature of mathematical certainty published in Commentarium (Rome, 1547). Barozzi argues that mathematical certainty derives from the nature of its proofs: . the certitude of mathematics is contained in the syntactic rigour of demonstrations.It is not, therefore, inferior to logical certainty. In addition he argues that mathematical certainty, from the human standpoint, is superior to metaphysical certainty. For although metaphysical certainty is superior in absolute terms, due to the superiority of God, relative to human understanding mathematical certainty is superior' (MacTutor History of Mathematics online).'Barozzi . focused his interest on proving the scientificity - and not just certainty - of mathematics by stressing its middle position (medietas) between philosophy and metaphysics, both in the order of nature (ontology) and in the order of knowing (epistemology). This doctrine he deemed common to Aristotle and Plato and was the source of recognizing mathematical demonstrations as equivalent to demonstrations potissimae. The compatibility between the objects of a science and the kind of demonstrations it used led, according to Barozzi, to the inescapable recognition of the higher status of mathematics relative to philosophy.'The debate over the status of mathematics in the sixteenth century signaled the beginning of a structural shift on the medieval map of knowledge toward a different understanding of the place of mathematics' (Rivka Feldhay, 'The use and abuse of mathematical entities: Galileo and the Jesuits revisited' pp 85-88, in The Cambridge Companion to Galileo).Galileo owned a copy of this work and Clavius praised it as inspirational in his introduction to his commentary on Euclid's Elements.The work is dedicated to Cardinal Daniele Barbaro (1513-1570), mathematician, architect, and translator and commentator on Vitruvius. Barbaro was friends with Palladio and Tasso. He also served as Venetian ambassador to the court of Edward VI in London.Barozzi (1537-1604), a Venetian patrician, taught mathematics at the University of Padua. His 'edition of Proclus's commentary on the first book of Euclid's Elements was the first important translation of this work, for it was based on better manuscripts than previous efforts had been' (DSB).Provenance: my copy, sold to Beltrame library in 1998Riccardi I 82.2; OCLC records Burndy (Huntington), Harvard, Wisconsin, Yale, Pennsylvania, and Oklahoma for North America

         APRILIS [The twelve months with views of Dutch towns; set title]

      Representation of the month of April within the series of the 'Twelve months with views on Dutch towns'. Here is 'Het Leeprosen huys by Haerlem', the hospital for the leprous and mentally ill people in Haarlem as it looked in the beginning of the seventeenth century. As a matter of fact this etching is a real document of a building complex that was heavily remodelled during the centuries according to its different functions. In 1320 begun the building of the hospital, just outside the city walls. Here were taken for the quarantine the sicks from lepra and plague but also, since 1560, mentally ill people. This was probably the oldest health institution in the Netherlands. On the left the Sint-Jacobskapel (ca. 1319-1477) and in the center the buildings for the mentally ill. In the foreground a portion of a field where peasants are sowing; on the right foreground two gentlemen on horseback overlooking the landscape. On the right background some boats on a canal. In the sky, above in the center the zodiacal sign of the Taurus. Inscribed on the bottom:'APRILIS' and four lines of Latin text:'Si Ver nidificum venit, et aeidis ... novis seminibus seges.' numbered on the bottom right:'4' Etching on paper, trimmed to platemark; total: 275 x 363 mm; crease on the top right margin, on the sky, top left corner slightly damages but not affecting the plate; wonderful impression; Franken & van der Kellen (1883) nr. 153, p. 81; hollstein 37

The work marks the swelling interest in Paracelsian, experimental medicine and the rejection of Galen's teaching; many of the medicines and cures described are highly dramatic, and often involve incredibly cruel processes such as melting a red-haired dog in oil. Others seem purely superstitious, such as giving a woman a boiled hare concoction for breakfast to gauge how fertile she is. It was hugely influential, especially in Britain where natural philosophers such as Francis Bacon were to follow the experimental example, and was translated into every European language. It was the first book to introduce the idea of science as a search for the secrets of nature, with Alessio as a wandering professor of the arcane. Indeed, later writings by Ruscelli claim that the Secretes were the result of work by his very own 'Academy of Secrets' that he founded with a group of humanists in Naples in the 1540s, the first recorded scientific society. This, then, is a work that helped to usher in the Scientific Revolution. Tomita 3 and 9; Levinson Catalogue 60 I 17 (1595 edition) "it is one of our early sources for the history of psychiatry".

         Meubles

      Paris: circa 1560. The set of 46 engravings, plates 190 x 140 mm, sheets 320 x 210 mm, good impressions, watermark Edmond de (?), with margins. 19th-century calf gilt. Four plates re-margined, old reinforcements along gutters, occasional pale staining and paper toning, otherwise in good condition. Provenance: purchased from Librairie de Nobele, 1982. In the 16th century, Du Cerceau and Jan Vredeman de Vries each issued albums of furniture designs, the first of their kind to appear. The plates show beds, tables, one chair, twenty buffets and armoires so elaborate that no ordinary cabinetmaker could have made them. The buffets are especially ornate, displaying caryatids, sphinxes, masks, garlands of fruit or flowers, trophies, vases, etc. "Although many pieces are shown built on platforms to raise them off cold stone and tile floors, comfort appears to have been a minor consideration. The beds are shallow wooden boxes with all sorts of decorative protuberances-lion masks, swans, snakes, and monsters-on which to bruise the human body" (Janet Byrne, Renaissance Ornament Prints and Drawings, New York, 1981, p.110). From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.
