      Realizzata come separata pubblicazione della Zenoi, alle volte è inclusa in alcune copie del Civitatum aliquot insignorum et locorum magis monitorum exacta delineation cum additione aliquot Insularum principalium. Disegni di alcune più illustri città et fortezze del mondo con aggionta di alcune Isole principali di Ferrando Bertelli (1568) ed anche nella seconda edizione dell'opera curata da Donato Bertelli (1574). 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. E' 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. The plan may have been separately published by Zenoi and it is also found in some copies of Ferrando Bertelli's "Civitatum aliquot insignorum et locorum magis monitorum exacta delineation cum additione aliquot Insularum principalium.

[img-2388-left-large_default] Binding dimensions 170 × 108 × 45 mm A fine copy of Fuchs' handbook of therapeutics, here in its final form incorpo­rating the author's last additions and revisions. The work has a complex textual evolution, being several times revised, enlarged, and corrected by the author. It developed from a book on therapies, De Medendis singularum humani corporis partium libri quatuor, published at Basel in 1539, immediately after Fuchs completed his Greek edition of Galen. A fifth part, 'De medendis tumoribus praeter naturam', was appended in 1542, when the book was reprinted by Johann Oporinus under the new title De Sanandis totius humani corporis libri quinque. 1 Three further parts were prepared for the present edition, when the work assumed yet again a new title. These new parts (Books vi-viii) discuss the treatment of wounds, tumours, ulcers, fractures and dislocations, and are illustrated by woodcuts of surgi­cal instruments copied (with acknowledgement) from Jean Tagault's De chirurgia institutione (1543), itself a rewriting of Guy de Chauliac. The 'Epistola nuncupatoria' in our volume is addressed to Christoph, Herzog von Württemberg (1515-28 December 1568), and is dated by Fuchs at Tübingen, 1 March 1548. In the preface, Fuchs states that he had been urged by Oporinus to pre­pare a new edition, since the stock of the previous edition (the aforementioned De Sanandis totius humani of August 1542) had been exhausted. 2 The colophon, how­ever, reads 'Basileae, per Ioannem Oporinum, Anno salutis humanae mdlxviii Mense Martio'. In all bibliogra­phies, '1568' is regarded as the date of publication; the 'first edition' of the text is considered to be the one printed at Lyon by Guillaume Rouillé, with a colophon dated March 1548. 3 In our judgment, the numeral 'x' was transposed by Oporinus' compositor, and the colophon misprinted as 1568 instead of 1548. Although no '1548' edition appears in the Oporinus shop catalogue of 1552, a work conforming to it is listed in Gesner's Appendix Bibliothecae published at Zürich in 1555: 'Praeterea libros quinque de medendi ratione recognouit & auxit, additis tribus libris chirurgicis. Basileae impressit Oporinus' (folio n3 verso). Further doubt on '1568' as the date of issue is cast by the documents of the press, which indicate that Johann Oporinus had sold the business to his brother Hieronymus in 1567, some six to eight months before his death on 6 July 1568. 4 references Johann Karl Proksch, Die Litteratur über die venerischen Krankheiten (Bonn 1889), p.102; Eberhard Stübler, Leonhart Fuchs Leben und Werk (Munich 1928), pp.222-225 and no. 35a (woodcut reproduced p.59); Richard J.

         Il Golfo di Venezia si come è il più famoso et illustre di quanti sono dal mare inondati...

      1568. Incisione in rame, mm 238x427. Secondo stato su cinque con la variazione della data da 1667 in 1668. Rara carta nautica dell'Adriatico che si estende da Venezia fino a Corfù e a Capo delle Colonne. Si tratta della prima carta incisa in rame dedicata in esclusiva all'Adriatico, pubblicata da Forlani nel 1567 (nota però in un solo esemplare al British Museum): la conformazione del mare è in stretto rapporto con quella che Gastaldi diede all'Adriatico nella sua carta dell'Italia del 1561, anche se alcuni studiosi tendono a vedere elementi derivanti dal Vavassore. Venne copiata da Lafreri e Nelli negli anni immediatamente successivi, a testimoniare il suo successo e la sua importanza. Ottimo esemplare ben impresso con brevi ma sufficienti margini.

         FRANCE - LE HAVRE: ABLA DE GRATIA.

      Copper engraving, blank on verso (Very Good, strong engraving impression with full blank margins, some minor natural paper thinness from verso along parts of centerfold but with no loss), sheet size: 25 x 37 cm (10 x 14.5 inches); platemark: 20 x 29 cm. - [Venice, circa 1568]. A very rare early map of Le Havre, France, by the ‘Lafreri School’ master Ferrando Bertelli. - This appealing map by the leading ‘Lafreri School’ cartographer Ferrando Bertelli is one of the earliest printed maps of Le Havre, France, a major port located at the mouth of the River Seine, in Normandy. The map focuses on the fortified Renaissance-style citadel that rises amidst the littoral marshes, with the waters of the Seine Estuary occupying the lower part of the map. The walls envelop the city, while within the various sectors are connected by bridges, while the ‘Arsenale’ (arsenal) lies surrounded by the waters of the port, whose mouth is guarded by the circular tower, labeled ‘Rocca’ (the rock). Bridges exiting the ‘portas’ connect the city to the surrounding countryside. Le Havre played an out-sized role in both French and Atlantic history during the 16th Century, even though it was a ‘new’ city. In 1517, François I ordered for a fortified port to be constructed upon the marshland at the mouth of the River Seine in order to variously serve as the maritime gateway for Paris, an assembly point for the Marine Royale, and as a base for fishing. Formally named Le Havre de Grâce, its port opened for traffic in October 1518, and the town gradually grew, including the construction of fortifications and fine gothic edifices. In 1540, François I charged the famed Siennese military engineer and cartographer Girolamo Bell’Armato to design a comprehensive urban plan and defensive system for Le Havre, in the best Renaissance model, the outlines of which are evident on the present map. The completion of the town hall, Admiralty Court and hospital soon followed. Le Havre quickly became the main base for the French Cod Fleet, sailing to Newfoundland, and the reception point for luxuries returning from the New World. In 1555, it was the embarkation point for Nicolas Durand de Villegagnon’s expedition to found a French colony in Brazil. In 1564, Réné Goulaine de Laudonnière left La Havre with his party to scout locations for a settlement in Florida. Le Havre also became one of the main haunts of the famed privateer and cartographer Guillaume Le Testu. Le Havre also played a key role in the French Wars of Religion. In 1562, the city was taken by Protestant forces, which proceeded to carry out of campaign of iconoclasm upon Le Havre’s churches. Fearing a Royal-Catholic counterattack, they turned to the English for aid, with troops from across the Channel soon arriving in the city. A Royal force under Field Marshal Anne de Montmorency retook the city in 1563. When the present map was made, a new citadel was in the process of construction, which was to guard the town. The finest of Le Havre’s fortification systems was completed under the direction of Sebastian de Vauban in the 17th Century. Le Havre continued to play a key role in the military affairs and economy of France, and is today the country’s second most import commercial port (after Marseille). Ferrando Bertelli (b. circa 1525, fl. 1561-1572) was an important cartographer of the ‘Lafreri School’, an informal classification of mapmakers who operated in Venice and Rome from the 1540s to ‘80s, as well as a member of the esteemed Bertelli family of cartographers. He is particularly known for his fine maps of cities and Mediterranean islands. The present map was issued by Bertelli around 1568, and was based on a map issued in 1567 by fellow Lafreri School cartographer Paolo Forlani which, in turn, was based on a map by Hieronymous Cock (Antwerp, 1563). Bertelli issued the map both separately and within his townbook of European and Middle Eastern cities, Civitatum Alioqut Insigniorum (Venice, 1568). It also appeared within certain Lafreri composite atlases, such as the well-known ‘Strabo Illustratus Atlas’, today held by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek (Munich). The presence of an old, clean centerfold on the present example of the map suggested that it appeared within

      Venetia, Niccolo Bevilacqua 1568 - Book in Italian. Nice leather banding with gold titles. Venetia, Niccolo' Bevilacqua, 1568 1. Vol. 8vo. (XXIV)+471+(1)+(1 blank) With wood-cut printer's device on titles & last page. Provenance: Edward N. Wentworth (1887-1959) his ex Libris is pasted on the back of the cover. Guicciardini was born of an aristocratic Florentine family that played a prominent role under Lorenzo de’ Medici (the Magnificent). From 1498 to 1505 Guicciardini studied civil law at Florence, Ferrara, and Padua and subsequently set up legal practice at Florence. In 1508 he married Maria, daughter of Alamanno Salviati. In the same year, he began to write his family memoirs and his Storie fiorentine (History of Florence) from 1378 to 1509. The latter constitutes one of the major sources for the history of the republican regime after 1494 and reveals Guicciardini’s gifts for historical analysis and narrative. Elected in 1511 as Florentine ambassador to King Ferdinand of Aragon, he was at the Spanish court when in 1512 the Florentines, under the pressure of Spanish troops, restored the Medici, who had been exiled in 1494. On his return to Florence in 1514, he resumed his legal practice; in 1514 he was a member of the Otto di Balìa, who were in charge of internal security, and in 1515 of the Signoria, the highest magistracy. In 1513 Cardinal Giovanni de’ Medici became Pope Leo X; in 1516 he appointed Guicciardini governor of Modena and in 1517 also of Reggio. Until 1534 Guicciardini served the papacy almost continuously. As governor of an exposed and recently acquired part of the Papal States, in which he had to face internal disorders as well as external dangers, Guicciardini showed outstanding administrative gifts. His severe and sometimes ruthless measures were effective in restoring order but also caused him unpopularity. The outbreak of the war in northern Italy between King Francis I of France and the Holy Roman emperor Charles V, with whom Leo had concluded an alliance, turned Reggio into a military outpost of the Papal States, and in July 1521 Guicciardini was appointed commissioner general of the papal army. During this time, Guicciardini became also a prolific political writer, composing numerous memorandums and treatises, mostly in the form of discourses on political problems of the day, often in connection with his official duties. A number of them deal with the government of Florence, on which he also wrote, between 1521 and 1525, the Dialogo del reggimento di Firenze (Dialogue on the government of Florence). In his capacity as commissioner general, he prevented, by his courage and determination, Parma from falling into French hands in December 1521. But the death of Leo X in the same month jeopardized his career temporarily; after the election of Pope Adrian VI, he was at first deprived of the governorships of Modena and Reggio but recovered them at the end of 1522. In 1523, after Adrian’s death, he had to defend both cities against their original ruler, the duke of Ferrara. Reggio capitulated, but Modena was held by Guicciardini against superior odds. After the election of Cardinal Giulio de’ Medici as Clement VII, Guicciardini earned his reward by being appointed, in 1524, president of the Romagna, the northernmost papal province. In the critical situation after the Battle of Pavia, when the army of Charles V was preparing to advance south, Guicciardini conveyed to the pope much advice, and in January 1526 he was called to Rome. There he played a prominent role in the papal counsels, advocating an alliance with France against Charles V. The resulting League of Cognac, concluded in May 1526, was to no small extent his work, and in June he was appointed papal lieutenant general with the army of the league. The failure of the league to prevent the imperial army under the duke of Bourbon from advancing on Florence and Rome involved him once more in the fate of his city.

      Basel, (Peter Perna), 1568. - 8vo. 334 (but: 336), (64) SS. (Bound with) II: The same. Pyrophilia vexationum que liber. (5), 137, (2) pp. Contemporary blindstamped calf. Remains of clasps. A sammelband containig two important works by Paracelsus. I: second edition (the first to be printed in Germany) of "one of the principal writing of the Paracelsus literature of the time" (cf. Sudhoff). The first edition had appeared in Paris the previous year, immediately followed by Perna's reprint which included an appendix of new contributions by Bodenstein and Dorn, in which they present their responses to Paracelsus's famous treatise "De vita longa". Perna's commercially successful enterprise was to prove instrumental for the great interest in Theophrastus's writings which marked the late 16th century. The compendium compiled by Jacques Gohory, one of the principal French Paracelsists, contains a Life of the master, an outline of the his teachings, a list of his works, and a copious commentary. For Dorn cf. DSB IV, 169; for Bodenstein: I, 49; for Gohory: V, 447. - II: First edition of this collection. "This is Dorn's first Latin Paracelsus. As he states on the title, Bodenstein published all of this 'ex authoris archetypo', probably meaning Hohenheim's original manuscript [.] Pages 1-34 contain the Pyrophilia, a translation of the Liber Vexationum based on Bodenstein's 1567 edition [.]; omits the conclusion. At the very end (pp. 99-100) Dorn provides a so-called 'Operis Conclusio' which is found neither in Bodenstein nor in Huser and which, indeed, has no connection with the preceding - it is the missing end of the 'vexations' (!!) [.], and was probably inserted here by mistake" (cf. Sudhoff). - Modern endpapers, title page of the first work stained and remargined; old ownership "ad usum Augustiniani". Somewhat browned throughout and rather fingerstained; edges limp; the first and final leaves in the volume have been remargined or reinforced at the edges. Binding rather rubbed; extremeties bumped. A complete copy. I: VD 16, P 529. Sudhoff 99. BM-STC German 137. Adams P 286. Durling 3481. Wellcome I, 4761. Waller 7128. - II: VD 16, P 597. Sudhoff 101. BM-STC 137. Durling 3482. Wellcome I, 4764.

         De praestigiis daemonum

      Basel: Oporinus, 1568. Weyer [Wier], Johann (1515-88). De praestigiis daemonum, et incantationibus ac veneficiis libri sex, aucti & recogniti. 8vo. 697, [55, index]pp. Woodcut illustration. Basel: ex officinal Oporiniana, 1568. 195 x 122 mm. Blind-tooled pigskin over wooden boards, brass clasps, rebacked retaining original spine, rear endpapers renewed, some staining; boxed. Very good. Copious notes in an early hand on front endpapers, title and verso title.Fourth edition, revised and enlarged. First published in 1563, Weyer's De praestigiis daemonum was the first major European work to take an empirical, scientific approach to the study of mental illness; it also represents one of the most celebrated exposés of the witchcraft delusion. Defying the authorities of the Inquisition and the doctrines of the Malleus maleficarum, which assumed the reality of witchcraft and demonic possession, Weyer asserted that most witches were actually suffering from mental illness. He backed his claim with careful descriptions of a number of case histories from his own clinical experience, containing some of the earliest references to purely psychological treatment. To emphasize the superstitious ignorance of doctors who adhered to demonological theory, Weyer analyzed the effects of the stupefying and hallucinatory drugs used in sixteenth-century medicine, attributing many aspects of witchcraft to their effects. He recognized the relationship between a highly suggestible temperament and mental instability, and described the phenomenon of mass contagion of mental illness. Weyer "was the first clinical and the first descriptive psychiatrist to leave to succeeding generations a heritage which was accepted, developed and perfected into an observational branch of medicine. . . . He reduced the clinical problems of psychopathology to simple terms of everyday life and of everyday, human, inner experience" (Zilboorg & Henry, p. 228). Garrison-Morton 4916 (first ed.). Zilboorg & Henry, pp. 208-235.

Disegni di alcune più illustri città et fortezze del mondo con aggionta di alcune Isole principali di Ferrando Bertelli (1568) ed anche nella seconda edizione dell’opera curata da Donato Bertelli (1574). 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. E’ 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. The plan may have been separately published by Zenoi and it is also found in some copies of Ferrando Bertelli’s "Civitatum aliquot insignorum et locorum magis monitorum exacta delineation cum additione aliquot Insularum principalium.

         Il Cristo della Moneta o Il Tributo della Moneta

      1568 - Bulino, circa 1568-80, firmato in lastra in basso al centro ‘Martino Ruota Sebenzan / f.' Da un soggetto di Tiziano. Secondo stato finale, con l’indirizzo dell’editore Luca Guarinoni abraso. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’incisione riproduce un dipinto di Tiziano per Filippo II, completato nel 1568 e spedito in Spagna nello stesso anno. La scena rappresenta la parabola della moneta, tratta dal Nuovo Testamento: i farisei, per tendergli una trappola, chiesero a Gesù se fosse lecito o no pagare il tributo a Cesare. Cristo rispose con molta saggezza. Si fece mostrare la moneta con l’immagine dell’imperatore e chiese: "Di chi è questa immagine e l’iscrizione?" I farisei risposero: "Di Cesare". Allora disse: "Rendete dunque a Cesare quello che è di Cesare e a Dio quello che è di Dio" (Mt 22, 15-21; Lc 20, 20-26; Mc 12, 13-17). Engraving, circa 1568-80, inscribed and signed at bottom center 'Titianus inven / Martino Ruota Sebenzan / f.', with eight lines on two tablets Second state, without Luca Guarinoni’ publishers address. A fine example, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the paltemark, very good condition. The question of paying tribute to Caesar, at the left two Jews interrogate Christ, one holds a coin, Christ points to the upper right This engraving reproduces Titian's painting for Philip II, finished in 1568 and sent to Spain in the same year, where he remained in the Escorial until Napoleon took it to France. It is probably identical with the canvas today in the National Gallery, London, inv. no. NG224. This print was published originally by Luca Guarinoni, whose publisher's address is replaced by the empty tablet at centre. The subject of this painting is taken from the New Testament. The Pharisees ask Christ whether it is right to pay tax to the Romans. Christ, sensing the trap, asks whose likeness and name are on the coinage: 'They say unto him, Caesar's. Then he saith unto them, render therefore unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's' (Matthew 22; Mark 12, Luke 20). A very rare work.

         La Imperial Citta d’Augusta

      Venezia 1568 - Carta topografica raffigurante la città di Augsburg. Sebbene anonima la carta viene assegnata alla mano di Paolo Forlani ed è parte della celebre raccolta di cartografia urbana che questi pubblica, insieme a Domenico Zenoi, nel 1567 con il titolo "Il primo libro delle citta, et fortezze principali del mondo". L’opera è di incredibile rarità e non ebbe una grande fortuna editoriale. Forse perché le lastre furono acquisite dall’editore Bolognino Zaltieri, che le utilizza per la raccolta di cartografia urbana realizzata da Giulio Ballino, denominata "De’ disegni delle più illustri città e fortezze del mondo", edita sempre a Venezia solo due anni dopo, nel 1569. Giulio Ballino era un avvocato veneziano che frequentava la casa dei Manunzio già verso il 1530, dedicandosi in gioventù allo studio dei classici. Il libro "De’ disegni delle più illustri città, et fortezze del mondo", stampato da Bolognino Zaltieri, è costituito da cinquanta vedute ed una carta geografica. L’opera rappresenta il primo tentativo, nell’ambito dell’editoria italiana, della realizzazione di un testo/atlante delle principali fortezze e città del mondo. A differenza dei suoi predecessori, dei quali utilizza spesso i rami e le iconografie, egli concepisce un’opera unitaria corredata di testi e di indice, della quale, per la prima volta, si è ha conoscenza dell’esatto numero di tavole che la compongono. Sicuramente ispirata all’opera del Du Pinet Plantz, "Pourtraitz et descriptions de plusieurs ville set forteresses.", la raccolta del Ballino è molto probabilmente solo una parte del progetto iniziale, molto più ampio. Egli probabilmente intendeva pubblicare un’edizione in latino, sperando di lanciare la sua opera a livello europeo, ma si arrese davanti alla pubblicazione del primo libro del "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" di Georg Braun & Fransz Hogenberg, che in qualche modo bruciò parecchie delle iniziative editoriali sull’iconografia urbana. Le carte della raccolta sono datate tra il 1566 ed il 1568; secondo un recente studio di Albert Ganado (1993), trentadue di queste risultano essere ristampe dei rami di Paolo Forlani e di Domenico Zenoi, per la prima volta apparsi ne "Il primo libro delle città, et fortezze principali del mondo del Forlani" (1567); questo cospicuo gruppo di tavole è inserito nella raccolta con alcuni ritocchi nelle lastre, che vengono modificate. Altre furono per la prima volta pubblicate da Ferrando Bertelli nel Disegni di alcune più illustri città di fortezze del mondo con aggiunte di alcune isole principali, datato 1568. Il resto delle tavole sono di anonimi incisori di cui l’autore si servì per la sua opera, probabilmente anche per ritoccare le lastre di cui era già in possesso. Alcuni esemplari di questa rara opera recano il frontespizio allegorico inciso da Nicolò Nelli, famoso incisore e calcografo veneziano della seconda metà del ‘500; altri esemplari viceversa hanno un frontespizio non inciso. Entrambe le versioni sono edite dallo Zaltieri nel 1569. Difficile stabilire quale sia la prima stesura e quale quella successiva, la sola differenza è infatti notabile nel testo al verso delle carte, che può variare nella dimensione dei caratteri. Altra differenza che alcune carte sono numerate al verso, mentre le stesse, esaminate in altri esemplari, sono prive di questo numero di pagina. Per semplice deduzione logica possiamo affermare che gli esemplari privi del numero siano antecedenti, teoria tuttavia non del tutto surrogata dall’esame di più esemplari dell’opera. Acquaforte e bulino, con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Unsigned map showing Augsburg, ascribed to Paolo Folrani. The map was first published in the incredible rare Paolo Forlani’s town book ""Il primo libro delle citta, et fortezze principali del mondo", published in 1567 with a partnership of Domenico Zenoi. The plates then comes in the hand of the publisher Bolognino Zaltieri and published in the De’ disegni delle più illustri città e fortezze del mondo", by

        Isola di Cerigo Cythera

      Padova 1568 - La mappa di Citéra è abbastanza fedele alla realtà. Come giustamente fa notare il Meurer il lavoro cartografico più noto del Bonifacio fu la serie delle mappe raffiguranti le isole dell’arcipelago greco, sia del Mar Jonio che dell’Egeo. Esse non sono datate e quindi è difficile assegnare una sequenza cronologica alla serie, databile al periodo 1567/68. Come tutte le carte della cosiddetta scuola lafreriana venivano stampate a se e quindi assemblate in atlanti compositi. Esemplare tratto dall'opera Universus terrarum orbis scriptorum calamo delineatus . qui de Europae, Asiae, Africae, & Americae regnis, provinciis, populis, civitatibus. pubblicata a Padova nel 1713, presso Matteo Cadorin, da Raffaello Savonarola, sotto lo pseudonimo di Lasor a Varea (o Varela). L'opera era una sorta di enciclopedia che conteneva notizie sulle varie località del mondo disposte in ordine alfabetico. Incisione su rame, ampi margini, in ottimo stato di conservazione. The probably best known cartographic works of the engraver Natale Bonifacio is a serie of maps showing Greek Islands in the Ionian en Aegean Seas. They are all undated and their chronological sequence is difficult to ascertain. Like the larger maps of The IATO these smaller ones were first issued for a loose sheet circulation, and then assembled in booklet form for interested customer. This example is from Universus terrarum orbis scriptorum calamo delineatus . qui de Europae, Asiae, Africae, & Americae regnis, provinciis, populis, civitatibus. published in Padua in 1713, by Matteo Cadorin. The author, Raffaello Savonarola, published the work under the pseudonym of Lasor a Varea (o Varela). Copper engraving, in very good condition. Zacharakis, A catalogue of printed maps of Greece, 206.
