         Clarorum ligurum elogia

      ex Officina Hieronymi Bartoli, 1588. Cm. 25, pp. (8) 265 (3). Marchio tip. al frontespizio e da alcuni splendidi capilettera xilografici. Bella legatura coeva in piena perg. molle con titoli ms. al dorso. Alone alle prime ed ultime (in questo caso assolutamente marginale) cc., qualche trascurabile e sporadica fioritura, peraltro esemplare fresco e marginoso, nel complesso ben conservato. Uberto Foglietta (1518-1581), celebre storico genovese, scrisse fortunate opere sulla storia della città ligure, denunciando gli abusi dell'antica nobiltà locale. Allontanato dalla Repubblica, fu in seguito al servizio di Emanuele Filiberto di Savoia e del cardinale Ippolito d'Este. Revocato il bando, nel 1576 rientrò a Genova, dove fu nominato storiografo della Repubblica. Quest'opera raccoglie gli elogi di oltre 150 illustri personaggi genovesi e liguri. Non comune. Cfr. Lozzi, I, 2275; Iccu; non in Brunet e Graesse. .

         D. Magni Ausonii Burdig. viri consularis opera. A Iosepho Scaligero, & Elia Vineto denuo recognita, disposita, & variorum notis illustrata (...) Adiectis variis & locupletissimis indicibus.

      (Geneve), Typis Iacobi Stoer, 1588. 16mo. 2 volumes in 1: (XXXII),350;247,(1 blank),(14 indices) p. 18th century calf, back recently and decently restored. 13 cm (Ref: GLN-3290; Schweiger 21; Graesse I,259; Smitskamp p. 118) (Details: Back with 4 raised bands, recently and expertly restored. Morocco shield with gilt lettering in second compartment. Boards with blind triple fillet borders. Elaborately blind tooled rectangles on both boards. Edges of the boards gilt, edges of the bookblock dyed red. Title within woodcut borders, right edge of the title slightly cut short. The second volume has a title of its own, it contains 'Iosephi Scaligeri Iul. Caes. F. Ausonianarum lectionum libri duo', to which have been added notes of A. Turnebus, Hardianus Junius, G. Canter, J. Lipsius & E. Vinetus) (Condition: Endpapers renewed. First title slightly soiled and having a name on it) (Note: Decimus Magnus Ausonius of Burdigala (Bordeaux), ca. 310-394, was according to H.J. Rose an example of the senile degeneration of 4th century Latin literature, and the first glimmer heralding the full day of French literature. He wrote trifles, sometimes pretty or clever, often tiresome. (H.J. Rose, 'A History of Latin Literature', London 1967, p. 527/29). H.G. Evelyn White, the editor of the Loeb edition, is even more negative: 'As poetry (...) the great mass of his verse is negligible'. The chief value of Ausonius' work is according to him historical. (Loeb Classical Library, Ausonius, Cambr. Mass., 1919. p. VII) The 'Neue Pauly' is more positive: 'Ausonius repräsentiert eine Kultur der Bewahrung und des Erbes. Allenthalben greift er auf die griech. und lat. Lit. zurück, über die er souverän verfügt, und gestaltet anspielungs- und voraussetzungsreiche pretiöse Gebilde von formalem Raffinement'. (Der Neue Pauly, 2,334) Alexander Souter is in the Oxford Classical Dictionary full of praise: 'His numerous poems, written in various metres (...) are of considerable interest, in both subject-matter and style. There are over a hundred epigrams, some of which are in Greek and others translated from Greek. There are 25 letters. His correspondence with Paulinus of Nola is the most notable part of these. The Ephemeris includes many poems in various metres, dealing with daily life. The Parentalia is a collection of short poems in memory of deceased relatives of the poet. The Commemoratio Professorum Burdigalensium is of interest for the history of education. (...) This account by no means exhausts the list of minor poems, throughout which the author's minute knowledge of Virgil is apparant and his Christian faith is not obtruded. His most important poem is the Mosella which still attracts readers. It is a rhetorically fashioned laudatio in 483 hexameters and describes in considerable detail the various fish to be found in the river as well as some of the fine buildings on the banks and other features, the whole constituting a series of episodes, composed, like the rest of Ausonius' verse, according to rule'. (OCD 2nd ed. p. 154) § The 2 French scholars mentioned on the title, Joseph Juste Scaliger,1540-1609, and Elie Vinet, or Elias Vinetus, 1509-1587, had probably nothing to do with the editing of this new Ausonius edition of 1588. It was produced, according to the very short preface, by the jurist P.B. Cestius I.C, or Petrus Baudoza Cestius, 1557-1627. It is further explained that it is based on the earlier edition of Scaliger, Antwerp 1575, with corrections of typographical errors. Vinetus had published an edition with his commentary in 1580) (Provenance: Name on title: 'Jacobus Levinus'. At the end of volume 1 written: 'John Rocherus, 1794') (Collation: ¶-¶¶8 a-y8 (minus blank leaf y8); A-Q8, R4 (minus last blank leaf R4) (Photographs on request)

         Il Tesoro della Sanità. Nel quale s' insegna il modo di conservar la Sanità, & prolungar la vita, et si tratta della natura de' cibi, & de' Rimedij de' nocumenti loro. Con la tavola delle cose notabili

      appresso Andrea Muschio, in Venetia 1588 - In-8° (168x110mm), pp. (16), 328, legatura settecentesca in p. pergamena rigida con titolo calligrafato al dorso. Impresa tipografica incisa su legno al titolo con un'aquila e un aquilotto in volo che fissano il sole radiante e, sullo sfondo, paesaggio con castello entro cornice figurata; entro un cartiglio spicca il motto Sic crede. Dedica a stampa a Sisto con sue armi pontificie incise su legno. Altra dedicatoria a donna Camilla Peretta. Fregi tipografici ornati o istoriati su legno. Qualche brunitura normale, lievemente rifilato al margine superiore. Bell'esemplare. Ristampa veneziana di questo trattato sugli effetti del cibo e del vino sulla salute, pubblicato per la prima volta in latino a Pesaro nel 1565 col titolo De bonitate et vitio alimentorum; la prima edizione in volgare apparse invece a Roma nel 1586. Il trattato, improntato al classico modello del regimen sanitatis, discorre dei più svariati alimenti (i frumenti, i vegetali, le carni, pesci, i condimenti, i vini) ed è, di fatto, un rifacimento in volgare di un inedito De victus et exercitationis servanda rationeconservato a Modena (Cfr. Kristeller, Iter Italicum, I, p. 387). Classico regimen sanitatis, l'opera si articola in due parti: la prima riguarda le sei cose non naturali (aria, moto e quiete, sonno e veglia, inanizione e replezione, accidenti dell'animo, cibo e bevande), la seconda esamina gli alimenti per generi e specie, indicando di ciascuno, per rubriche, nomi, qualità, scelta, giovamenti, nocumenti e rimedi. Chiaro, agile e divulgativo, il Tesoro divenne un prontuario diffusissimo, fu ristampato in vari luoghi e passò dall'originale in 4° a formati sempre più maneggevoli, in 8°, in 12° e perfino in 16°. (Tiziana Pesenti in Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani, vol. 42, 1993).Castore Durante (Gualdo Tadino, 1529-Viterbo, 1590), fu medico personale di Sisto V e studioso di botanica. Durling, 1333.

         LUCA. Tuscia nobiliss. Italiae Regio LUCAM urbem in mediterraneis ostentat Romanorum quondam Coloniam. Veduta assonometrica della Città di Lucca. Incisione su rame di Georg Braun.

      Colonia 1588 - Incisione originale su rame tratta dal quarto volume de "Civitates Orbis Terrarum in aes incisae et excussae, et descriptione topographica morali et politica, illustratae", Coloniae Agrippinae, 1572-1617. Formato della tavola cm.35x52 (margini cm.42x55). Testo descrittivo, in latino, al verso. L'incisione è opera del calcografo fiammingo Franz Hogenberg. L'incisione è tratta dal quarto dei sei volumi che compongono l'Opera, stampato presumibilmente attorno al 1588. > Bedini / Fanelli, "Lucca, Iconografia della città", 40: "La stampa offre una rappresentazione fedele della città nello stato in cui si apprezzava nella seconda metà del XVI secolo . Il valore della pianta è notevole come documento sia per la storia della città sia di un nuovo modo di rappresentazione della realtà urbana; in essa si individuano chiaramente la struttura a maglia regolare della città romana, la successiva fase di crescita medievale e la nuova dimensione conseguente la costruzione delle mura". Nuti, "Ritratti di città, visione e memoria tra Medioevo e Settecento": "la prima inedita immagine di Lucca, quasi sicuramente elaborata su una pianta tracciata durante i lavori di costruzione delle nuove mura, che si vedono per lunghi tratti già in piedi". Citti, "L'immagine della città nell'iconografia urbana del secolo XVI" [in "I palazzi dei mercanti nella libera Lucca del '500. Immagine di una città-stato al tempo dei Medici", a cura di Isa Belli Barsali]: "la prima rappresentazione con caratteri di scientificità poiché gli alzati si riferiscono a una base planimetrica verificata geometricamente. E' perciò utilissimo documento della città nel XVi secolo, sia per quanto riguarda le mura che per i palazzi, esattamente disegnati, alcuni messi in grande rilievo". 100 gr.

      (Londra, John Wolf), 1588. Cm. 13,5, cc. (8) 385 (3). Con ritratto dell"Aretino entro medaglione circolare ai quattro frontespizi. Ottima legatura ottocentesca in cart. rigido con titoli in oro su tassello al dorso. Esemplare ben conservato.

Queste quattro commedie, soprattutto Il Marescalco e La Cortigiana, sono considerate tra le più significative della sua produzione letteraria. Lo spirito pungente, le avventure galanti e l"arguta critica sociale delineano un affascinante quadro dell"epoca. Edizione poco comune, stampata a Londra da John Wolf (che lavorò a Firenze presso i Giunti) per sfuggire alla messa all"Indice dei libri proibiti. Cfr. Iccu; Gamba, 1204; Adams A-1562; Brunet I, 408; Mazzuchelli 260..

Alla guida di un piccolo esercito di mercenari Albornoz riconquistò il Lazio, Spoleto, la Marca anconitana, la Romagna e Forlì. Le sue celebri Costituzioni, emanate nel 1357 per gli Stati Papali, rimasero in vigore fino al 1816.

Sie wurde von Joachim Camerarius dem Jüngeren posthum herausgegeben und erschien teils als separate Ausgabe (wie hier vorliegend) und teilweise in Verbindungen mit dessen "Hortus medicus et philosophicus". - Thal (1542-1583), Stadtphysikus in Nordhausen, beschäftigte sich intensiv mit Botanik und verfasste mit vorliegendem Werk ein Verzeichnis der Pflanzen des Harzes und der umliegenden Gebiete - vielfach mit genauen Ortsangaben - dessen Besonderheit darin besteht, dass hier erstmals versucht wird, alle vorkommenden Pflanzen zu erfassen und zu beschreiben und nicht nur die pharmazeutisch wirksamen, wie in den üblichen Kräuterbüchern.

He engraved most of the plates for Ortelius' Theatrum and the majority of those in the Civitates, and may have been responsible for originating the project. Worked and died in Cologne/Germany. He was a prolific copper engraver and etching artist of maps and town views. In cooperation with Georg Braun he created the first four volumes of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum in 1572.

         Declaration . sur sa prise des armes, pour la iuste defence des villes de Sedan, & Iametz, Frontiers du Royaume de France, & sous la protection de sa Majesté

      no printer 1588 - a bit of staining, surface abrasion to title-page, a little worming in the inner margin, A4 and C1 reinforced at inner margin, pp. 21 plus final blank leaf, 8vo, later (not new) wrappers. François de La Noue,1531-91, called Bras-de-Fer on account of his prosthetic iron arm, was one of the most celebrated generals of the age, and a champion of the Huguenot cause - Sedan being a refuge for Protestants fleeing the French Wars of Religion. In complex political and dynastic circumstances, La Noue sprang to the defence of the young Charlotte de La Marck, the heiress to the Duchy of Bouillon, the Principality of Sedan. There are several versions of this brief text, all rare, this the rarest. The regular edition, if so we may term it, was printed in Verdun, also in 1588, and there was another edition, with a false Verdun imprint, actually printed in London. An English translation appeared the following year, and there was also a German one. As a Protestant champion La Noue had a following in England, and he was in fact a confidential correspondent of Walsingham.

         In B.Pavli Apostoli Epistolam "Ad Romanos" Absolutissima Commentaria Rever.mi D.Cornelii Mvssi Episcopi Bituntini...

      Venezia,1588. In 8°, ( cm. 18,5 x cm. 25,5 ),pagine 656. Residui di tagli verdi .Legatura in cartonato originale coevo, con ordinari segni d'uso e di tempo. Elegante incisione al frontespizio.Scritto in Latino, con testatine, finalini e capolettera. Compilato su due colonne. La lettera "Ai Romani" è un testo in lingua greca, scritto da Paolo di Tarso, l'Apostolo dei Gentili ( Romani 11, 13 ), indirizzata ai Cristiani dell'Urbe,da egli stesso ritenuti come "noti"in tutto il mondo per la loro grande fede.La più lunga di quelle da lui compilate,viene considerata la sua più importante eredità teologica e soprattutto composta, per spiegare che la salvezza si ottiene solo attraverso il Vangelo di Cristo.Il testo ha forma di lettera ma, data la sua complessità, non rientra in alcun canone epistolare specifico, per cui può, a ragione, essere definita una sorta di "Trattato in forma di lettera".

         Iok en ernst: dat is; Allerlei deftige hofredenen, quinkslagen, boerteryen, raadsels, spreuken, vragen, antwoorden, gelikenissen; en al wat dien gelijkvormigh met de naam van apophtegmata verstaan wordt. ... 't Eerste deel [all published].Amsterdam, Jacob Lescaille, 1644. 4to. With engraved vignette on title-page. Contemporary vellum, traces of ties.

      STCN (7 copies of this issue); Te Winkel IV, pp. 327-328. First edition of the first and only volume of a collection of apophthegmata aptly titled Jok en ernst ("Jest and earnest"), by the cousin of Johan de Brune, the elder (1588-1658), who is now better known, but in his heyday less popular than his younger namesake. It includes 240 anecdotes all accompanied by extensive commentary. It is this combination of witticisms with a broad knowledge that gives this book its intellectual charm.Johan de Brune, the younger (1616-1649) was raised partly in England by his uncle Francicus Junius, a pioneer of Germanic philology, and partly in Amsterdam by the Dutch humanist Vossius. He was well-read at an early age, and was compared to Montaigne and Bacon by his contemporaries, but his early death prevented him from living up to these comparisons.A restored tear and some minor waterstains in the lower margins, the title-page slightly browned and some occasional spots, otherwise in very good condition. Binding somewhat soiled, but still very good.

      Artist: Braun/Hogenberg Franz/ Georg ca ; issued in: Cologne; date: ca1588 - - technic: Copper print; - colorit: original colored; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 38,5 x 50,5; - description: Map shows the citx Braunschweig as bird s eye view; - vita of the artist: Frans Hogenberg (1535 ? 1590) was a Flemish and German painter, engraver, and mapmaker.Hogenberg was born in Mechelen as the son of Nicolaas Hogenberg In 1568 he was banned from Antwerp by the Duke of Alva. He travelled to London, where he stayed a few years before emigrating to Cologne. He is known for portraits and topographical views as well as historical allegories. He also produced scenes of contemporary historical events.George Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the "Civitates Orbis Terrarum".The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. The sixth and the final volume appeared in 1617. This great city atlas, edited by Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg, eventually contained 546 prospects, bird-eye views and map views of cities from all over the world. Braun (1541-1622), a cleric of Cologne, was the principal editor of the work, and was greatly assisted in his project by the close, and continued interest of Abraham Ortelius, whose Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was, as a systematic and comprehensive collection of maps of uniform style, the first true atlas.

         The Holy Bible Containing the Old Testament and the New: Newly Translated Out of the Originall Tongues and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared

      Christopher Barker, London 1588 - We offer a Geneva Bible, often referred to as the Breeches Bible, in remarkably sound and clean condition for its age. It is handsomly bound in full leather with five raised bands on spine and with metal corners and clasps; the sturdy boards, with blind decoration and a decorative metal design at centre, are original, but the leather spine is of a later date. The title-page, which is printed on old paper, is probably of a later date too. This is followed by a section of prayers and psalms prior to the complete Old Testament. This initial section is dated 1586 and printed by John Wolfe for Richard Day, rather than by Christopher Barker who printed the Old and New Testaments; the New Testament has an attractive decorative title-page dated 1588 whereas this appears to be lacking in respect of the Old Testament, which has no title-page of its own in this copy. The Old and New Testaments comprise 555 pages; they are followed by a section entitled 'Two Right Profitable and Fruitfull Concordances' printed by Christoper Barker in 1588, and an edition of 'The Whole Booke of Psalmes' printed by John Woolfe, once again for Richard Day, in 1586; this final section has 98 pages. The substantial binding is a little rubbed but is otherwise totally sound; the metal ornamentation is also sound. The flyleaf and first prelim page are rather fragile and a bit ragged with slight loss down the foredge; the same is true of the title-page. The early pages of the section of Prayers that follows are extremely fragile and darkened too with slight loss down the foredge and along the top edge; the later pages of the same section are in better condition overall and the text remains clean, but the final page of this section has an oblique tear from the corner along the bottom edge, although there is no loss of text or of the tail piece at the foot of the page. The body of the biblical text is in remarkably clean condition overall with just occasional darkening and with the odd stain, In the text, from the New Testament onwards, there are however just a few old worm holes. On the verso of the title-page of the New Testament is an inked Note, written horizontally, by the Bible's owner. The note dated April 1746 was penned by Samuell Brook, who states in an inspired way:'This being my last legacy my Grandmother left me to read and practise for my Soul's health. She was a good patron and instructor and by her godly life, she was a lively example of piety; exhorting me to read, understand and practise; for that is the way to be a wise man. She died in the 89 year of her age. This book being in the family an hundred and three score years.' Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Occasional very slight light browning to margins, otherwise contents clean. A very good copy (lacking 1 plate as noted). The large folding map of Lemnos and Athos is often missing, it is not called for in earlier editions. Pierre Belon was a French naturalist, (circa 1517 -1574). He studied medicine in Paris, where he took the degree of doctor, and then became a pupil of the botanist Valerius Cordus (1515-1544) at Wittenberg University, with whom he travelled in Germany. On his return to France he was taken under the patronage of Cardinal de Tournon, who provided him with the means for undertaking an extensive scientific journey. Starting in 1546, he travelled through Greece, Asia Minor, Egypt, Arabia and Palestine, and returned in 1549. In his book he describes the flora and fauna he encounters on his journey, antiquities and towns, and also the peoples and their lives and customs. Many illustrations show unusual animals and plants, 5 are of snakes, 1 shows a small dragon, the only one not based on observation.

         Certaine advertisements out of Ireland, concerning the losses and distresses happened to the Spanish Navie, upon the West coasts of Ireland in their voyage intended from the Northern Isles beyond Scotland, towards Spaine

      London I. Vautrollier for Richard Field 1588 - Small Quarto. 18cm x 13cm. 19pp. First edition (in setting that collates A-B). Beautifully bound in quarter pigskin over marbled boards to style, pink title label. new endpapers. Internally clean and bright. Woodcut printer's device to title page. Blind stamp of North Library to title page; from the Tony Sweeney collection. Woodcut headpiece to Aii. A scarce contemporary account issued anonymously by the Chief Advisor (or Spymaster if we're being blunt) of Elizabeth I, regarding the destruction of the Spanish Armada and the subsequent annihilation of many of its survivors who were despatched on the beaches of Galway by the local populace. The final two leaves detail the ships lost and their crews in 1588 with an additional list of men and ships lost in the two months preceding. Apart from the fascinating period detail and providing an understanding of the professional and detailed nature of the Elizabethan propaganda machine under Cecil, this ephemeral pamphlet rarely seen at all (only two or three copies in auction since 1961), occasionally seen bound with "A Copie of A Letter Sent Out of England." provides a harrowing account of what the enemies of the crown could expect when washing up on the shores of the scepter'd isle: "He inviteth also that there was at the same time another great ship cast away in Tereawley.and all the residue of that ship are slain and drowned.Meleghlen Mac Cab, A Galloglasse, killed 80 of them with his Galloglasse axe." When it comes to the defending the shores of Britain from invaders, apparently there is no such thing as bad publicity. A scarce and fascinating survival. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Very good copy. ---- PMM 102 (this edition); Adams T667; Renouard, Estienne, 152-153; Schreiber, Estienne, 216; Dibdin II, 506. - Second Estienne edition. Thucydides recognised that the Peloponnesian war was the event of greatest importance in the history of Greece and he devoted himself to recording it in the belief that knowledge of the past is the best guide to the future. With De bello Peloponnesiaco Thucydides established the highest historical methods and standards, limiting his sources to either personal knowledge or verifiable witnesses in order to present as accurate and objective a picture of the event as possible and thus to provide a 'possession for all time'. It is our only record of the history of that war. The Estienne 1588 edition is "generally considered the best 16th-century edition of the greatest historian of Athens. For this new edition Estienne has corrected the Greek text and scholia, as well as further revised Valla's Latin translation, which is now printed on the same page with the Greek text in parallel columns, while the Greek scholia are printed at the foot of the page" (Schreiber). The printining place is uncertain. PMM states Geneva as place whereas Dibdin mentions the work as being printed in Paris. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
