A handsome copy of a landmark work. $12,500. * First edition. Written between 1250 and 1256, De Legibus et Consuetudinibus Angliae [The Laws and Customs of England] is the first treatise on English law. A systematic work, it emphasizes the separation of procedural and substantive matters and also cites cases as sources of at least intellectual, if not formal, authority. The principles formulated in this work and its use of precedents determined the development of English law and established the method adopted by Littleton and Coke. In Maitland's words, it is "the crown and flower of English medieval jurisprudence" and "by far the greatest of our medieval law books.": Maitland, Collected Works II:43.

         De Medendis Febribus ars medica

      Ex officina Marci de Maria Salernitani, 1569. In-4° antico (207x143mm), pp. (16), 461, (3), legatura dell'inizio del '700 in piena pergamena rigida (rimontata) con titolo in oro su tassello in pelle granata al dorso. Impresa editoriale al frontespizio (ripetuta al verso dell'ultima carta) con un angelo con gigli nella mano sinistra entro cornice figurata con motto:" Hi sunt administratorii spiritus - Humilis sicut lilium germinabit.". Dedicatoria dell'autore al cardinale Girolamo Seripando. Indice preliminare. Alcune note manoscritte del tempo al margine. Una firma antica. Ex-libris nobiliare ottocentesco Luigi Antonio Imperiale Lercaro. Sparsi aloni, insignificante foro di tarlo marginale ad alcune cc., nel complesso più che discreto esemplare. Seconda edizione di questo trattato rinascimentale sulla profilassi e la cura delle febbri. L'ultima parte è dedicata alla peste. L'Altomare (Napoli, 1506 ca.-ivi, 1566), medico nella propria città, seguace della scuola classicistica ispirata alle dottrine di Ippocrate e Galeno, godette della protezione di papa Paolo IV e pubblicò anche un altro trattato, più volte ristampato, di medicina generale. Egli fu altresì l'autore di una curiosa monografia sulla manna che gli valse l'accusa di plagio da parte di Annibale Briganti. "Fu insegnante nello Studio di Napoli, dove formò una combattiva schiera di discepoli e sostenne vivaci polemiche soprattutto contro i paracelsiani. A contatto con i migliori ingegni napoletani del suo tempo, dal Tansillo ai Della Porta, l'A. fu stimato uomo virtuoso e di acuta intelligenza speculativa e raggiunse tale fama da essere ancora ricordato da T. Boccalini in un elenco di medici famosi di tutti i tempi accanto a Cornelio Celso, Ippocrate, Galeno, Fracastoro.. Spesso nei suoi scritti l'A. non fa che commentare, sfrondandole delle interpretazioni magiche e delle incrostazioni medievali e riportandole, con spirito umanistico, alla loro forma originaria, le opere classiche della medicina, greche e arabe, opponendosi contemporaneamente sia al magismo di alcuni ambienti medici del tempo sia, anche, agli studi nuovi che si andavano svolgendo nel campo dell'anatomia e della fisiologia." (Alberto Merola in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, II, 1960). Hirsch, I, 115. Wellcome, 252. IA. 104.011. EDIT16 CNCE 1299.

         Consiliorum sive responsorum quotidianas materias complectentium, in causarum foro versantibus aduocatis quam utilissimorum. Tomus primus [-tertius].Venetiis, apud Hieronymum Scotum, 1569-70.

      Venetiis, apud Hieronymum Scotum 1569-70 - Tre volumi di cm. 32, pp. (32) 375 (1); (40) 387 (1); (40) 391 (1). Stupendi marchi tipografici a frontespizi e colophon, decine di graziosi capilettera xilografici. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena rigida; dorso a 3 grossi nervi con titoli ms. al dorso ripetuti al taglio di piede. Antiche firme di possesso ai frontespizi. Abile intervento di restauro conservativo alle legature, lievi aloni sparsi e qualche carta arrossata, sporadici segni di tarlo perlopiù limitati al margine esterno. Esemplare nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Marco Antonio Natta (?-1568), celebre giureconsulto nativo di Asti, fu magistrato di gran fama a Genova e autore di numerosi ed autorevoli consilia legati alla sua esperienza di praticus. Così la voce N. a proposito della sua attività di giurista consulente (Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, vol. 78, voce curata da Alberto Lupano): "I quali [consilia] rimasero citati a lungo non solo in ambito subalpino ma tra i giuristi di tutta Europa. L'opera di Natta, insieme con quella di Aimone Cravetta, rappresentò infatti un riferimento alla dottrina di diritto comune di origine piemontese anche per Ugo Grozio che, nel De iure belli ac pacis, ne colse il profondo valore equitativo [.]. I sostanziosi responsi, in prevalenza composti su richiesta di committenti locali, astigiani, monferrini, genovesi e mantovani, sono costruiti sulla base della communis opinio, però esprimono uno stile caratteristico che evita elucubrazioni troppo complicate, mirando unicamente a raggiungere l'obiettivo, e produce un risultato espressivo limpido, asciutto e incisivo, raro nella letteratura consiliare". Edizione non comune completa in tre volumi (per un totale di 642 consilia); nelle edizioni successive fu aggiunto un quarto tomo. Cfr. Sapori, 2075; Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Cujas insegnò a Tolosa, Cahors, Bourges, Valenza e Torino; fu maestro di straordinari giuristi ed intellettuali del tempo, fra cui Scaligero, Loisel e Pithou.

         Signature from the end of a document in Latin (James Douglas, c.1516-1581, Lord Chancellor of Scotland, 1563-1566 and 1567-1573, Regent for James VI 1572-1578, from 1553 4th Earl)

      1569 - with transcription and translation, "In witness whereof I [have put] my hand to these presents . to which also my seal is appended. In the presence of these witnesses . Archibald Douglas rector of Douglas, George Auchinlek . with divers others", vellum, 1 side 2"x5¼", Dalkeith, lacking the beginnings of the lines present Morton procured the murder of Rizzio, 'discovered' the casket letters and led the van at the battle of Langside against Mary's supporters. He was also implicated in Darnley's murder, for which he was finally charged and executed in 1581. The Archibald Douglas who witnessed this document was a cousin of Morton's wife, being a grandson of the 2nd Earl. (Morton was Earl in right of his wife). The old kirk at Douglas where he was rector is the burial place of the Douglases. He too was implicated in Rizzio's and Darnley's murder. By 1572 he had been installed, after great opposition, as parson of Glasgow (St. Mungo's, the cathedral). When Morton was apprehended in 1580, Douglas was forewarned and fled to England. A packed jury acquitted him of all treasons in 1586, and he was sent as ambassador to England, where he contributed to the condemnation of Queen Mary. Signed also 'Angius', i.e. 'of Angus', the 8th Earl, 1553-1588, another Archibald Douglas, Morton's nephew and ward, being the son of Morton's elder brother David, briefly 3rd Earl in 1555. The young earl attended St. Andrews, and carried the sword at James' first parliament in 1567. When his uncle was apprehended in December 1580 by his political enemies, he planned an English invasion to support him, but was detected and fled to England., where he got to know Sir Philip Sidney. He was later pardoned, and was lieutenant-general of Scotland in 1586. His neat signature is based on Italian models rather than a secretary hand. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Imagines Quorudam Principum

      1569. ROTA, Martino, Nicolò NELLI, & Domenico ZENOI. Imagines Quorudam Principum, et Illustrium Virorum. Ritratti di alcuni prencipi, et huomini illustre. Bolognini Zaltery formis. Engraved title-page followed by 71 engraved plates. 4to., 260 x 200 mm, bound in contemporary limp vellum, title in manuscript on spine, preserved in a recent red half morocco folding box. Venice: Bolognini Zaltieri, 1569.A rare series of Renaissance portraits by engravers from the school of Marco Antonio Raimondi. These striking images are the work of Martino Rota (1520-1583), Nicolò Nelli (1552-1579) and Domenico Zenoi (ca. 1560-1580), often signed by the engraver and dated between 1566 and 1568. The portraits depict royalty and other famous people of the day, 58 of which sit within highly accomplished complex architectural frames of Renaissance taste. The remaining portraits are depicted within an oval against a blank background as well as two of sultans riding on horseback.Being the work of craftsmen rather than fine artists, it stands to reason that the engraved borders often overshadow the portraits. They provide a forum for Rota, Nelli, and Zenoi to each demonstrate their considerable skill at engraving a mélange of subject matter like complex scroll work and grotesquery. However, the subjects in ovals without borders seemingly incomplete, are intriguing in their own right.A rare book, somewhat complicated by the fact that the number of plates in copies located varies considerably; The Morgan Library has a copy with 57 plates, LC with 31, Biblioteca Nacional de Espana 53, Herzogin Anna Amalia 67. Two copies appear to have more plates at the NYPL and Rostock University with 75. Rare Book Hub finds no copies sold at auction. A fine copy, with strong impressions, binding with early repairs, early marginal repairs to the front fly-leaf and title.PROVENANCE: Early ownership inscription on the bottom of the title-page. V.

         Le vinti giornate dell'agricoltura et de' piaceri della villa di M. Agostino Gallo, delle quali, sette non sono più state date in luce, et tredici di nuovo son ristampate con molti miglioramenti

      4to (218x158 mm); contemporary flexible vellum (lacking ties); (24), 447, (1) pp. Title-page within ornamental woodcut border, woodcut portrait of the author at title-page verso, and 19 full-page woodcut illustrations in the text. Printer's device at last leaf verso. Bookplate of Count Thun-Hohenstein Tetschen on front flyleaf. A very fine copy with wide margins and in its original binding.RARE ORIGINAL EDITION of the definitive version of one of the most important Renaissance treatises on agriculture. First appeared in Brescia in 1564 under the title Le dieci giornate ('The ten days'), comprising only ten books, it was reprinted in Venice by N. Bevilacqua in 1566 in an edition augmented to thirteen books. In 1569 Percacino published separately books 14 to 20, before issuing the complete text in twenty books (or days) in the same year.The work is written in the form of a dialogue between two gentlemen from Brescia, Giovan Battista Avogadro, the owner of an estate in Borgo Poncarale (as the author), and Vincenzo Maggio, his guest. In book 11, dedicated to breeding and dairy farming, is introduced the character of Scaltrito, an expert 'Malghese' who buys hay for Avogadro. The 'Malghesi' were herdsmen of cattle, sheep and goats, who in summer time used to bring their herds up to the mountain pastures in the Alps. The detailed description that Scaltrito gives of the manufacture of matured cheese (a real compendium of dairy technique) corresponds precisely to the methods used today to make Parmesan cheese.Agostino Gallo, undoubtedly the most important Italian agronomist of the sixteenth century, was born in Cadignano. His treaty mainly focuses on the agricultural region that he knew best, i.e. the plain of Brescia. He writes about the citrus and olive trees of the Riviera del Garda, as well as the local wines, to which are dedicated books 3 and 4 (cf. B. Scaglia, Presentazione, in: A. Gallo, "Le venti giornate dell'agricoltura e de' piaceri della villa", Brescia, 2003).The kind of agriculture that emerges from the Giornate is an intensive one. It is an agriculture which is transforming its tools and techniques to increase the production in order to meet the needs of a growing and more urbanized society (cf. A. Saltini, Storia delle scienze agrarie, Bologna, 1979, pp. 71-86).Edit 16, CNCE20249; Mortimer, I, 205 (1572 edition); V. Peroni, Biblioteca Bresciana, Brescia, 1818-'23, II, pp. 88-90; R.

Extremely rare Old Testament Apocrypha containing the testaments of the 12 sons of Jacob. This apocryphal piece was originally created around the second century by Jews who converted to Christianity. The testaments contain the last words of the dying patriarchs with a description of the patriarchs life and mostly conclude with prophetic visions. This is probably the second edition printed by Willem Sylvius, other known Sylvius editions are from the year 1562 and 1570.

         1569 "Bear" Bible; First Bible in Spanish

      THOMAS GUARINUS AND SAMUEL APIARIUS 1569 - 1569 BEAR BIBLE; First Complete Bible Printed in Spanish. Formerly owned by Oscar B. Cintas, Cuban Ambassador to the United States. LA BIBLIA, QUE ES, LOS SACROS LIBROS DEL VIEEIO Y NUEVO TESTAMENTO. TRASLADADA EN ESPAÑOL. [BASEL: THOMAS GUARINUS AND SAMUEL APIARIUS?], 1569. Title-page with woodcut printer's device of a bear cub raiding a beehive, one full-page woodcut plate and one woodcut text vignette, numerous woodcut initials. An extraordinary, complete copy. Clean and crisp. Full calf binding, gilt edges, hand marbled endpapers. La Biblia del Oso or the "Bear Bible," is the earliest edition of the complete Bible in Castilian Spanish. The translator was Cassisoro de Reina (ca. 1520–94) of Seville, who fled the Spanish Inquisition in 1557 and preached to Spanish Protestants in London, Antwerp, and Frankfurt-am-Main. The publisher and printer of his bible are not named within the book, but the copy Reina presented to the University of Basel in 1569 was inscribed with the name of the printer Thomas Guarinus and the printer's device is that which appeared in other books printed by the Apiarius family of Bern. Reina's "Bear bible" derives it nickname from the famous woodcut on the title, which shows a bear helping himself to honey from a hive. The bear was the emblem of Apiarius's native city state, Bern, and the bees are a reference to his family name. Other works printed by Apianus with this device also include the legend from Psalm 119: "how sweet are they words unto my taste! Yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" Here one finds instead the Hebrew and Spanish versions of Isaiah 40:8, a passage dear to Martin Luther: "The word of our God shall stand forever." A remarkable example.

         Therapeutices universalis seu Medendi rationis libri septem

      [Genève], Jacques Derbilly [Jacobum Arbillium] 1569 - [Genève], Jacques Derbilly [Jacobum Arbillium], 1569. In-8 de 252 [ei 552] pages et 40 pages; veau fauve de l’époque, double filet d’encadrement sur les plats avec petits fers dorés centraux et en écoinçon ; dos avec nom de l'auteur et titre incisé sur un cartouche doré. Peu courante première édition séparée d’une partie de la Medicina de 1554. Fernel est un des meilleurs cliniciens du XVIe siècle et l'inventeur de la physiologie. Sa thérapeutique, avec sa physiologie et sa pathologie, est l'un de ses textes les plus importants et influents. Les therapeuthices universalis seront à nouveau publiés séparément à plusieurs reprises jusqu'à la fin du XVIe siècle notamment en 1574, 1577, 1581 et 1592. Pour une édition plus tardive de 1577, voir Heirs of Hippocrates 220.2 : "This is an uncommon posthumous edition of Fernel’s landmark work that served as a medical textbook for many decades. Fernel is generally considered to be the person who established physiology, pathology, and therapeutics as standard and discrete categories of medical inquiry. According to PMM [sic], “Both physiology and pathology had, of course, existed in rudimentary form before Fernel; but he was the pioneer who gave these subjects their names and established them as separate systems.” The second work in this volume is his treatise on therapeutics and treatments, including those for fevers, syphilis, and epilepsy Fernel was physician to Catherine de Medici, whose infertility he was credited with curing, and subsequently to Henri II, to his wife, and to his famous mistress, Diane de Poitiers. Fernel was an influential reformer during his lifetime, as he insisted that medical studies be based on clinical observation more than on ancient authorities. “His insistence that physicians should study the human body and not rely on tradition may well have inspired his pupil, Vesalius, to the latter’s great anatomical studies” (Heirs of Hippocrates)." Auréoles d'humidité angulaires et marginales, toutefois bel et rare exemplaire en élégante reliure d'époque avec une étonnant pièce de titre ciselée sur dorure.

      1569 - Acquaforte e bulino, firmato in basso a sinistra PAUL’ FARINAT F. Esempalre nel terzo stato finale. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in buono stato di conservazione. Etching and engraving, signed at bottom left PAUL’ FARINAT F. Example in the third state of three. A good impresison, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the paltemark, in good condition. Mary Magdalene in the desert seated before a cross at the left holding a book with her left hand, right on her breast. The artist himself referred to this etching in his Diary. It had been considered as the iconographical model for a small painting in reverse, commissioned from the artist by Niccolo Troian in 1581, today in Narodní Galerie, Prague, inv. no. 814. According to Albricci 1980, the painting derives from a drawing, today lost, that was transformed into this etching at around the time of the painting's commission. Giorgio Marini argued that Farinati must have based his painting on a preparatory drawing rather than the print. The composition is close to Battista del Moro's painting of the same subject, included originally in the cicle of the Manuta cathedral, today in its sacristy.

         Trattato ... delle lodi e della coltivatione de gl'ulivi.

      Florence: Filippo Giunti e fratelli, 1569. First edition. One of the most erudite and accomplished intellectuals of the late Renaissance, Pietro Vettori (1499-1585) served as the house philologist for the Giunti publishing firm, and held the chair in Latin and Greek at the Florence Studio. A first-echelon classicist, he prepared several important editions of ancient texts, culminating in the standard Renaissance text of Aristotle's Poetics. While this essay on the cultivation and production of olives is profoundly informed by Vettori's classical scholarship, it is, as he says, a labor of love ("composto con amore"). Indeed, Vettori describes the olive tree in sensual terms, extolling its grace and beauty that invite caresses ("sua vaghezza e leggiadria merita d'essere accarezzata.") He approaches the subject from the perspective of a practical farmer who is also able to condense the advice of classical and modern literary sources such as Columella, Theophrastus, Cato, Varro, Sophocles, and Dante. The book opens with a sort of brief survey of the literature, followed by a long central section of practical instruction on the planting, cultivation, and harvesting of olive trees. The last section deals with production and use of olive oil. The present copy was owned by an Italian farmer of the sixteenth or seventeenth century who made notes in the margins and underlines in the text. This farmer ignored the literary history and even the section on oil production, but paid close attention to the middle section on planting and cultivation. The farmer's notes and comments provide interesting insight into contemporary interpretation of the text. An early owner, perhaps the farmer, removed the famous portrait of Vettori from the 1574 edition of the Trattato (the first edition was published without the portrait) and pasted it onto the blank page facing the title page. . Quarto (22 cm); [2], [8], 89 pages. Signatures X1, A-L4, M6. Woodcut portrait by Hugo de Bloote and Cornelius Cort from 1574 edition mounted before title page. Device on title, two woodcut historiated initials. Later (?) vellum. Scattered light foxing, mostly marginal. Occasional marginal notation in early hand.

         Aureum caelimundium, seu liber de caelo et mundo.

      1569?]. 1569 - Aurea descriptio mundialis. aedita annis ab octuagesima constitutione mundi, quinque millibus, & septingentis nonagintaseptem [5797], regnante eodem domino. folio (260 x 200mm). XXX, [4], XXX1-XLIIII, [2], Bologna device with motto 'libertas non bene pro toto venditur auro' on title-page, penultimate leaf with errata (recto) and 'peroratio', last leaf blank, 20 8-line woodcut initials, antique style calf-backed marbled boards, red morocco label. [Bologna? Extremely rare edition of the only published work of Battista Gargiaria listed by Censimento Edit 16. We can locate only one other copy outside Italy, that at the Bodleian Library, Oxford. The author is generally described as a Bolognese jurist who flourished in the second half of the sixteenth century, but this may be a confusion arising from the fact that G. B. Gargiaria published several works on the law in Bologne in the mid 17th century. On the title to this work he is described as 'most diligent master and investigator of heavenly, terrestrial and universal [mundanarum] matters'. The book is described as published in the year of the world 5797. In the preface addressed to all those desirous to learn of natural things the author indicates that he has been prevented from publishing the book by various external forces but that now a happy conjunction of time and matter has enabled him to print it. Gargiaria has compiled a digest of opinions (not one of them identified) on the physical nature of heaven and earth. The first section (ff. 2v-13v) discusses the 'entitas' of the heavens. There then follow (ff xiv-xxx plus [4] 'Opiniones de caelo multiformes et super quidditate eiusdem'. This consists of a large number of 3- or 4-line definitions, not one of them attributed to a name. He follows traditional Aristotelian distinctions so in the first part we have a wide range of views on the essence and ?quiddity? of the heavens. There then (ff. xxxi -xxxvr) follow the views of philosophers, astronomers and others on the heavens, and of the poets ( ff. xxxvv-xxxvir, taken from Ovid Metamorphoses). The two Jewish views of heaven follow (xxxviv-xxxviiv) and these are two whole chapters (1 and 10) from Ezekiel in the Vulgate version. The seven heavens envisaged by muslim writers are briefly described and the commentator Alphachi (Alfasi?) is specifically mentioned, only to be refuted. There then follow short citations of Jewish and Christian authorities (taken from the O.T. and the N.T.), and on ff. xliiv- xlivr various opinions on the division of heaven. F. xlivverso is blank, , the next leaf has errata and register, and on the final verso is the Perorartio which states that the author has brought his task to completion. Provenance: Early inscription on title-page inked out (Nicolai de Arenis?). Stamp on verso of final leaf, ?Ex libris Prof. Romuli Meli Romae? Romulo Meli (1852-1921) was a noted Italian geologist and palaeontologist.Title-page soiled with some paper repairs with two letters and a small piece of banner from the armorial device expertly replaced in manuscript, ff.

Very good copy apart from the repairs.Second edition of Monardes's treatise on the medical plants of the New World, first published in 1565. Both editions are rare in commerce. Monardes, a physician living in Seville, Spain, never traveled to America but was able to study a large number of New World plants due to Seville's control over the navigation and commerce operating between Spain and the Americas. He maintained a botanical garden in which he grew both native and exotic plants, and made scientific studies of the pharmacological properties of such New World species as tobacco, coca, sunflower, sarsaparilla, ipecacuanha, cinchona and sassafras. Monardes's Dos libros was "the first full treatise on these drugs, and for many years the most important study of the medicinal plants of Central America" (Mann, Modern Drug Use, p. 202). It was through Monardes's writings that the American materia medica began to be known, and his books were widely read and translated. The English version, translated by John Frampton, was published in 1569-71 under the title Joyfull Newes out of the Newe Founde Worlde. Dictionary of Scientific Biography.

First edition of the German translation of the 16th book of Amadis de Gaule, a collection of popular chivalric novels, translated from a French adaptation of the original Spanish chivalric romance. Amadis de Gaule was modelled after characters from the King Arthur tradition, especially Lancelot, and also heavily influenced by the legend of Tristan and Iseult. Amadis became an exemplary knight: a good Christian who rescued people and fought monsters. The complete series consisted of 24 books, published at Frankfurt between 1569 and 1595. The first surviving Amadis de Gaule was published in 1508 at Saragossa in 4 volumes, edited and enlarged by Rodrigues de Montalvo, and became immensely popular, though the text probably dates back to the 14th century. The French adaptation of the text by Nicolas Herberay increased the work's popularity throughout Europe and inspired many sequels and similar texts. These works also gave impetus to works like Don Quixote, which mocked the chivalric genre.Reasonable copy. Foxed and slightly browned throughout, with a water stain in the upper margin of the first few leaves and a larger water stain on the last 100 pages. Binding damaged at the head and foot of the spine, revealing a manuscript fragment supporting the spine, front board stained.

         Il vero ritratto di Netvno

      Venezia 1569 - Titolo & iscrizioni: In alto al centro in un riquadro IL VERO RITRATTO DI NETTUNO al presente occupato da gl’inperiali. Orientazione nei quattro lati al centro con il nome dei venti TRAMONTANA, MEZZO DI, LEVANTE, PONENTE, il nord in basso. Carta priva di scala grafica e graduazione ai margini. Carta anonima, priva di data ed inidcazioni editoriali. Si tratta di una fedele riduzione della carta attribuita ad Antonio Lafreri, e realizzata in occasione della Guerra del Sale. Sebbene non risulta inserita in nessuna delle tre copie conosciute del Il primo libro delle citta et fortezze principali del mondo, edito a Venezia da Paolo Forlani nel 1567, la mappa può essere ricondotta per motivi stilistici alla tipografia di Paolo Forlani. La lastra fu acquisita da Bolognino Zaltieri che la ristampa, inalterata, per le due diverse edizioni del De’ disegni delle più illustri citta, et fortezze del mondo di Giulio Ballino, entrambe pubblicate a Venezia nel 1569. Nel testo al verso dell’edizione di Zaltieri si trova l’iscrizione: L’anno poi 1556 l’esercito spagnuolo guidato dal Duca d’Alba general Carlo V Imperatore contra le genti della Chiesa e Francesi, prese questo castello giudicatolo luogo molto accomodato alla guerra, essendo terra marittima e de’ soldati per mare. L'opera non ha nessuna variante di lastra, ma le tirature dello Zaltieri (1569) presentano un testo descrittivo al verso. Esemplare dell'edizione Zaltieri del 1569. Incisione in rame, ampli margini, restauro perfettamente eseguito nella parte superiore, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Marigliani (2005): p. 90; cf. Marigliani (2016): n.

         Magiae Naturalis, sive de Miraculis Rerum Naturalium, libri IIII.

      Apud Gulielmum Rovillium, 1569., Lugduni [Lyon]: - Small 8vo. [1]-344 pp., [4] ff. Index; marginal worm trails showing on the final 4 leaves. Somewhat modern quarter calf, and endleaves. Very good. RARE. Very early edition [Another edition of 1561 printed in Lyon by Roullius [283 pages], making this 1569 issue the second printed in Lyons, as determined via WorldCat.]. Porta’s work was first issued in four books, 1558, and expanded up to XX books (1589), written first at the age of fifteen. Dedicated to Philip II of Spain. "From 1574 to 1580 Della Porta was repeatedly interrogated by inquisitors, and the publication of his writings was prohibited. Jean Bodin, in his Démonomanie des sorciers (1580), accuses Della Porta of being a ‘poisonous sorcerer’ and goes on to attack Agrippa. Among the various followers of Paracelsus, Jacques Gohory, denounced Della Porta. As Massimo L. Bianchi has recently demonstrated, Della Porta was up to date on Paracelsus’ ideas, although perhaps only through his followers. As if this were not enough, Thomas Erastus, a Protestant critic of Paracelsism, spoke out against Della Porta as well – which leads one to believe that the last two accusations were also reactions against his chemical experiments. This onslaught forced Della Porta, at the height of his fame, to cease published for several years." – Zambelli, p. 28. "Natural Magic was revised and considerably expanded throughout the author’s lifetime." The text contents include: I: natural phenomena; II: medicinal preparations; III: alchemy, metallurgy, glass; IV: optics, a chapter on the camera obscura (the first known full description)." – [See full S.E.P. essay in next description] Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. "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 best known 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, XI, pp. 96. Giambattista della Porta, noted Neapolitan mathematician and natural philosopher, overshadowed only by Galileo in the work of Renaissance science, had a wide range of scientific and literary interests. There are demonstrated by his numerous published works. His most famous and best remembered are those on natural magic, optics, refraction and the telescope. He was also a member of the outstanding literary academy of Naples, Altomare, and the founder of the Accademia de’ Secreti (Secrets of Nature). Later, he became a member of the famous Accademia dei Lincei, as well as other lesser known literary academies in Naples. His dabbling in pseudo-scientific and occult sciences caused his works to be banned by the Inquisition in 1592, which was lifted in 1598. Thorndike points out that Della Porta was either adept at escaping "serious molestation or punishment by submission or by influence in high places." – Thorndike, v.6, p. 156.

         THION VILLE Vera discrittione et ritrato di Thionville fortezza in’espugnabile, con l'asedio d'intorno de francesi, et con la dimostratione della presa.

      Venezia 1569 - Carta topografica raffigurante l'assedio della fortezza di Thionville. 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 the siege of Thionville, 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 illustr

         Il riposo dalla Fuga in Egitto

      1569 - Bulino, 1569, firmato e datato in lastra in alto al centro. Da un soggetto di Tiziano. Esemplare nel secondo stato di due, con la firma. Bellissima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana non leggibile, rifilata alla linea marginale, tracce di piega centrale verticale, difetti minori perfettamente restaurati, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L’opera deriva dal dipinto di Tiziano, andato perduto e noto attraverso una replica della scuola conservata all’Escorial. Il soggetto viene per prima interpretato a stampa da Giulio Bonasone, del quale questa di Rota è una fedele traduzione, in controparte. L’esemplare ante litteram, di primo stato, è citato da Zani. Tra i seguaci tecnicamente più dotati di Marcantonio, Rota fu uno degli artisti che esportò al nord lo stile e la tecnica italiana dell’arte della stampa. Stando agli indirizzi riportati su molte delle sue lastre, era nato a Sebenico, in Dalmazia, la stessa regione natale di Schiavone. Tuttavia la vita dell'artista, prima della sua comparsa a Roma, nel 1540, come incisore di riproduzioni, è pressoché ignota. Le prime stampe da lui realizzate coniugavano la maniera raffinata e sistematica di Marcantonio con un'abilità in continua crescita. Nell'Urbe, Rota lavorò anche con l'incisore fiammingo Cornelis Cort, appropriandosi spesso della sua maniera più rustica per attenuare l’effetto scultoreo che Marcantonio aveva raggiunto. Inoltre, Rota realizzò incisioni dalle opere di Taddeo Zuccaro, Luca Penni e Tiziano, pubblicate da Antonio Lafrery e dai suoi successori Duchetti e Guarinoni, i più importanti editori romani dell'epoca. Non sappiamo con esattezza quando Rota lasciò Roma, ma lo troviamo in seguito attivo a Firenze e Venezia, tanto che, negli anni a seguire, i nomi delle città di Sebenico e Venezia venivano incisi sulle sue lastre insieme a fianco al suo nome, sottolineando l’importanza che il periodo veneto deve aver avuto per l’artista. È in questo stesso periodo che Rota inizia a mostrare particolare interesse per le opere di Dürer e una inclinazione a sintetizzare e formalizzare il fluido linguaggio figurato dei veneziani. Gli editori Ferdinando e Luca Bertelli, Niccolò Nelli e Giovanno Francesco Camoccio pubblicarono le opere che realizzò nella città lagunare. Oltre alle lastre rappresentanti delle riproduzioni, Rota realizzò anche dei ritratti a Venezia, e diverse mappe e vedute della città, alcuni dei quali vennero anche incisi. Nel 1568 Rota si trova a Vienna, al servizio della Corte Imperiale; probabilmente ottenne questo incarico attraverso altri artisti veneziani con dei legami con la corte, come ad esempio Tiziano. Durante la sua permanenza in Austria, Rota si concentrò principalmente sulla propaganda imperiale, trascurando le riproduzioni. Trasformava allegorie politiche, rappresentazioni di vittorie militari e ritratti della famiglia imperiale e dei loro cortigiani in stampe affascinanti, economiche e facilmente divulgabili. In pratica, Rota prese il posto che era stato di Dürer all’inizio del secolo. Le lastre firmate dell’ultimo periodo variano enormemente dal punto di vista della qualità pittorica e tecnica, tanto che si potrebbe ipotizzare che anche i suoi assistenti lavorassero alle lastre firmate col nome del maestro. Rota fu attivo fino all'anno della sua morte, nel 1583, lasciando un esiguo numero di lastre incomplete, ultimate dal suo allievo Anselm de Boodt. Engraving, 1569. Signed and dated at upper center. After Titian. Example of the second state of two, with the signature, A fine impression, printed on contemporay laid paper, two vertical folds, small reapaired areas, generally in very good conditions. The work comes from a painting by Titian, lost and known through a replica of the school preserved at the Escorial. The subject is first interpreted printed by Giulio Bonasone, of which this is a faithful translation of Rota, in counterpart. The example before the inscriptions, in the first state, is only mentioned by Zani. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Encadernação do século XVIII inteira de pele com nervos e ferros a ouro na lombada, cansada, apresentando os cantos e a coifa superior danificados. Bela impressão quinhentista ilustrada com brasões da casa real (D.Sebastião) e belas capitulares com figuras historiadas; Indice impresso a duas colunas; As Anotações apresentam frontíspicio tipografico próprio com o mesmo brasão (das Leis Extravagentes) e a assinatura do autor impressa no fim do verso do último fólio. Exemplar aparado à cabeça, com restauro do canto inferior direito da folha de rosto, leves manchas de humidade e manchas de oxidação do papel: trabalhos de traças na dianteira das folhas sem perda significativa de texto; contendo sublinhados e anotações manuscritas da época (marginais de página inteira, por exemplo fólio 72): e títulos de posse sobre a folha de rosto: «Anastácio José» e «Pedro de Mascarenhas??». Primeira edição desta obra raríssima e importante, contendo um importante repositório das leis quinhentistas, efectuado pelo Doutor Duarte Nunes de Leão, importante jurista do séc. XVI e Desembargador da Casa da Suplicação. Na Quarta Parte desta obra (fólio 121 verso e seguintes) estão transcritas, e com referência às fontes originais, as leis anti-judaicas e anti-muçulmanas. Duarte Nunes de Leão, ou do Leão (Évora, 1530 - Lisboa, 1608) foi um jurista, filólogo e historiador português de origem judaica. Formou-se em Direito pela Universidade de Coimbra, desempenhando mais tarde o cargo de juiz desembargador da Casa da Suplicação. Defendeu a anexação de Portugal por Castela, mas foi depois mal recompensado pelos governantes filipinos, que lhe moveram ou deixaram mover perseguições, explicáveis pelo antissemitismo da época. A sua obra cobre fundamentalmente três áreas: o Direito, a História e a Linguística. Nunes de Leão foi o autor, entre muitas obras publicadas e não publicadas, da 'Crónica dos Reis de Portugal, Lvsitani Censvrae in Libellvm de Regvm Portvgaliae Origine', sobre a origem genealógica e a história dos reis de Portugal, na qual analisa várias fontes, referindo e refutando as versões mais hipotéticas da história de Portugal e da 'Origem, e Orthographia da Lingoa Portugueza', obra ainda hoje inovadora. Publicou estudos pioneiros sobre o nosso idioma e é considerado o fundador dos estudos ortográficos. Sabe-se ainda da existência de outros escritos, nomeadamente nos domínios da lexicologia e da etimologia, que contudo se perderam. Coligindo as palavras do seu sobrinho, Duarte Nunes de Leão não se contentou em ser um dos mais eminentes do seu tempo na área do Direito Civil e Canónico, tendo abraçado outras ciências; foi um notável erudito na história antiga e moderna, sendo por seu engenho e estudo capaz de toda a ciência digna de homem. Assim, Nunes de Leão não somente se dedicou à composição das ordenações e leis do reino de Portugal, com muita satisfação do Rei e por seu mandado, mas também por honra de Portugal escreveu a sua história.

      - Genève, De l'Imprimerie de François Perrin, 1569. In-folio (314 x 198 mm), pleine peau retournée, dos gothique à 6 nerfs, (8), 172, (8) feuillets [*8, a-z6, A-G6]. Deuxième édition de la traduction française de 'Praelectiones in librum prophetiarum Danielis' (1561) donnée par Jean Budé et son beau-frère Charles de Jonvillier, secrétaire de Calvin. Impression soignée, grande marque gravée de l'imprimeur sur le titre. Lettrines et bandeaux. On y trouve en tête une intéressante épître de Calvin à ses coreligionnaires de France sur 13 pages: "Il y fait quelques confidences intéressantes sur le rôle qu’il attribue à ses propres écrits. Il regrette une absence de 26 ans, l'expliquant par son refus de vivre 'en lieu duquel la vérité de Dieu, ensemble aussi la pure religion, et la doctrine du salut éternel estoyent dechassées et bannies'. Mais il ne se désintéresse pas 'du peuple dont je suis sorti'. Il continue: 'Puis donc que tout ce temps-là je me suis efforcé de secourir et aider publiquement aux François, et qu'en particulier aussi je n'ay point cessé de resveiller les endormis et paresseux, d'aiguillonner ceux qui estoyent lasches et tardifs ( ). Puisqu'on imprimoit mes leçons, ausquelles j'ay exposé les Prophéties de Daniel, rien ne me pouvoit mieux venir à propos, treschers et bien-aimez freres, pour vous representer en ce mirouêr " (cf. J.-F. Gilmont et R. Peter, Bibliotheca Calviniana, p. 847). D’avril 1560 à septembre 1562, pendant deux ans et demi, Calvin a commenté dans des leçons latines orales les Livres des prophètes. Selon son habitude, il s’adressait directement à ses étudiants. Ces cours étaient recueillis par Charles de Jonviller, son secrétaire, assisté de son beau-frère Jean Budé, fils de Guillaume, devenu bourgeois de Genève et membre du grand conseil. "Ensemble ils mettaient en forme leurs notes le soir même et le lendemain les présentaient à Calvin pour correction et approbation" (cf. Yves-Marie Bercé, 'Leçons de Calvin ', Droz, 2016). (Chaix, Dufour et Moeckli, 'Livres imprimés à Genève de 1550 à 1600', p. 71. Erichson, 'Calviniana', p. 31. Peter & Gilmont, 'Bibliotheca calviniana', n°69/2.). L’ouvrage est rare.
