Item Description: (Paris, D. Janot for) Gilles Corrozet, (February, 24th) 1542., 1542. Folio. VI, CLXXIIII lvs. With 36 woodcuts (one nearly full-page) all surrounded by a varying border (partly decorated with coats of arms), some "lettres fleuries" initials by G. Tory (cf. Mortimer ) and few "Crible " initials. Woodcut printer's device. A magnificent, signed heraldic binding worked in leather marquetry by the famous Paris bookbinder Gruel from the last quarter of the 19th century in an excellent state of preservation. First edition of Sevin's translation. Denys Janot organized this edition under his own name and for various Paris bookshops, whose own signets and sales notes were then imprinted. Thus our specimen bears the Corrozet-signet on the title page (v. Renouard 206) and the note : "On les vend à Paris en la grand Salle du Pa1ais du costé de 1a chapelle de messieurs, en 1a boutique de Gilles Corrozet Libraire." This signet makes the book - which is extremely rare anyhow - a top rarity , not accounted for in the relevant bibliographies / catalogues. The woodcuts derive from Janot's edition of the first books of the "Amadis de Gaula" of 1540 (cf. Brun and Mortimer), the borders partly were made earlier (thus one is dated "1520"). The borders frequently bear foliage ornaments, and a whole series of them shows grotesque faces and heraldic shields. The lavishly equipped Moroccan leather binding bears in the middle of both covers the coat of arms of Henri IV (1553 -1610) in an oval cartouche with the French heraldic shield (on a blue background) and that of Navarre (on red) together with three crowns: the two small ones representing France and Navarre, and the big one symbolizing the union (v. J. Guigard, Nouvelle Armorial du Bibliophile. Paris 1890. p. 20). The heraldic shields and the small crowns are enclosed by delicate foliage. Crown as well as tendrils are gold-embossed, the colours of the escutcheons are subtly repeated in the big crown. The coats of arms are surrounded by a network of partly geometrical, partly floral and ornamental polychromatic ribbons (in beige, brown, ruby and red) in Grolier-style, ending at top and bottom in a bigger grotesque, and below four corner vignettes in a smaller one each (in beige the bigger, in brown the smaller ones). The fields between the stripes are gold-embossed with ?Crible? dots. The cover decor is predominantly worked in leather marquetry .This binding in mock-historical style follows the tradition of ?reliure adaptée au texte?, a speciality of the Gruel studio (cf. R. Devauchelle, La reliure en France de ses origines a nos jours. Paris 1961. Vol. II, pp.34ff.).The above term would have to be extended with the top products from this workshop to ?reliure adaptée au texte et aux illustrations", as in these cases the bookbinder extended his historical approach to elements of the artistic illustration of the book: Thus in our example the ?Crible? - initials correlate with the corresponding cover decor, Henri's IV coats-of-arms correspond with the (fancy) heraldry of the woodcut borders, and this correlation continues right through to details of motif in the Bourbon fleur-de-lis or the crowns. The covers show floral corner vignettes unfolding in a fan shape, and these also reappear in the lines of several borders; the same applies to the grotesques and the floral elements. Thus the book with its illustrations and the cover binding form an integral artistic unity. Ex-libris. A carefully cleaned copy; title still with old and very faded entries. Throughout evenly somewhat browned, in places with faint mildew or brown spots. Some woodcuts slightly paler in imprint. Few sheets with surface irregularities in the bottom outer corner, due to the process of paper-making. Altogether a very clean specimen of this rarity.

I, 142; Cioranescu 20705; BMSTC (French Books) 71; Omont (Janot) 125; Brun S. 158 (if there is mentioned a printer it is only Janot). An extensivede. Bookseller Inventory # 545

Item Description: Zanotti Castiglione per Andrea Calvo, 10 February 1521; Bologna: Franciscus Plato de Benedictis, ca 1492-93, Milan, 1492. FIRST PRINTING OF BOTH WORKS. 210 x 133 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). [110] leaves, including final blank; [34] leaves, single column, 26 lines in roman type. Two separately published works bound in one volume. FIRST PRINTING OF BOTH WORKS. HANDSOME RENAISSANCE INTRICATELY DECORATED BLIND-STAMPED CALF BY CLAES VAN DOERMAELE, covers with outer frame of medallion and foliate roll, inner frame of long-stemmed lilies and scrolling vines, large central panel containing a medallion with three-quarter portrait of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, a sword in one hand, an orb in the other, the collar of the medallion with the inscription "Carolus V Roma. Imp. Semper August. Etat Sue XLII," a large escutcheon containing a double-headed eagle above the medallion, a banner with Charles V's motto "Plus Ultra" suspended between two columns below it, binder's small "CvD" escutcheon stamp below the central panel; raised bands, early ink-titled paper label, small paper shelf number of a private library at foot of spine, unobtrusive expert repairs to head of front joint, tail of both joints, and upper corners, lacking ties. In a (slightly worn) linen clamshell box. Front free endpaper with 16th century ink ownership inscription of Johannes Hoyel; rear pastedown with inscription of A. Fletcher (i.e., Andrew Fletcher of Saltoun--see below). For provenance: Willems "Bibliotheca Fletcheriana," p. 34; First work: Brunet I, 994 ("edition rare"); Second work: Goff B-762; BMC VI, 826; for the binding: Goldschmidt 184; Weale 94; Fogelmark, p. 125. Title page just slightly soiled, two leaves with minor browning to lower corners, two tiny marginal stains, otherwise A FINE, FRESH COPY IN A VERY WELL-PRESERVED BINDING, the leather lustrous, and the blind-stamped details remarkably sharp. This is a happy combination of two Boccaccio first editions in a wonderful Renaissance binding by a known binder, and with distinguished provenance. "Amorosa" tells of a dream of love in 50 cantos of terza rima, the text here with Boccaccio's own revisions, as well as with additional work by the humanist editor Claricio, who includes a defense of Boccaccio's poetry. The tale follows a dreamer led by a female guide through a castle to the garden where his beloved awaits, plot elements that are clearly reminiscent of Dante, and modern critics now see "Amorosa" as having exerted influence on Petrarch. The bound-in incunabular text here, the novel "Urbano," was represented originally as a newly discovered work by Boccaccio, but it is now known to be a spurious work variously attributed to Giovanni Buonsignori, Buonaccorsi da Ginestrata, or Cambio de Stefano. The hero, Urbano, is the son of Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa and a peasant girl whom he raped. Urbano bears a strong resemblance to the emperor's legitimate heir, Speculo, and is tricked by unscrupulous Florentine merchants into marrying the daughter of a sultan who believes him to be the emperor's heir. After numerous dramatic twists that include the death of Speculo, the plot is resolved when Frederick acknowledges Urbano as his heir. The first dated work by our Bolognese printer Franciscus de Benedictis (known by the nickname "Plato") appeared in 1482, and he began printing regularly in 1487, mostly for publisher Benedictus Hectoris. He issued several undated works in Venice, but continued printing in Bologna until six months before his death in August of 1496. BMC notes that he was known as a "Printer of mark" and was respected by his patrons as "a man of probity as well as of some cultivation." Binder Claes (Nicholas) van Doersmaele (or Claus Duermale) was active in Antwerp beginning in 1533. Goldschmidt notes that he was "appointed 'Stadsboekbinder' for the town of Antwerp" after the death of Willem Vorsterman in 1543, and that "the account books in the Antwerp achives after that date are bound by him." His name contines to appear in the archives as a binder until 1549. Our binding was probably executed around the time van Doersmaele became the state bookbi. Bookseller Inventory # ST12543

Item Description: Londres but chez Pierre Prault Paris -61, 1757. Five volumes 8vo (20.2 x 13.5 cm). With 116 numbered engr. plates incl. 5 engraved titles and a portrait frontispiece, 97 head and tail pieces by Gravelot and Boucher among others, engraved by Aliamet, Bacquoy, Lemire and others, plus a frontispiece and 21 extra planches libres, unsigned but attributed to Gravelot; closed tear to p.57, vol.2. Red morocco by F. Bedford ca. 1900, gilt dentelles in imitation of Derome with the a l'oiseau tool, gilt spines with raised bands, blue silk doublures, all edges gilt; very slightly soiled. Finely bound in richly gilt red morocco à la dentelle, this beautiful example includes the very rare portrait and 50 plates from the first issue, "le plus recherché [with] les épreuves les plus belles" (Cohen). It contains the charming 'figures libres', even offering one more than usual: "l'une des plus jolies suites de Gravelot" (Gay-L.). Indeed our copy has 21 erotic plates plus the frontispiece, instead of 20 usually found and described by the bibliography. Almost all plates of the first two volumes and some of the third bear the ink stamp at the back proving that they belong to the much sought-after first issue, printed for the Italian edition. Cohen among others praised this great achievement of Gravelot, Boucher, Cochin and Eisen, the best illustrators of the French 18th century. The edition not only shows more than 100 plates, but also includes rich decorative engraved head- and tail-pieces in the best tradition of book illustration of its time. The Italian text was translated into French by A. Le Macon. Cohen-de Ricci 160 (not mentioning the portrait plate); Gay-Lemonnyer I, 830 (with the portrait); Ray 39-41; not in Nordmann.

TRAGEDIES, Gathered by Jhon Bochas, of All: Boccaccio Giovanni]; [Early

Item Description: London by John Wayland [n.d., ca. 1554-1555], 1555. AN EXTREMELY RARE AND EARLY PRINTING of Boccaccio's tragedies into English, the third or fourth issuance only. Titlepage and leaf Gg4 (bound after title) with architectural woodcut borders(McKerrow 76a) and with woodcuts on leaf A4 illustrating events in the Garden of Eden, woodcut initials throughout. Folio [299 x 203 mm], in very fine and handsome nineteenth-century red hard-grain morocco by F.P. Hathaway of Boston, the boards elaborately framed in extensive gilt, the upper board with central gilt crest of John W. De Kay, the spine beautifully lettered and decorated with central tools in gilt in compartments between gilt ruled raised bands, elaborate gilt tooled board edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. De Kay's armorial bookplates on front pastedown and verso of front free endpaper. (10], ctxiii, xxvii [i.e., xxxix] leaves. A very handsome and well preserved copy of this rare printing. The binding very handsome indeed, with only the most minimal wear to extremities, joints expertly and near-invisibly restored. The title-page and Gg3 laid down and reattached, the title with small ink notations at top, not affecting text or woodcut border. The inner margin of leaf Gg4 (which is bound in after the title-page in this copy, and *2 repaired, with some loss to woodcut border and a few words of text. Other minor paper repairs to several leaves, in a few cases affecting a few letters of text, evidence of old damp throughout last half of book which is fairly inoffensive. VERY RARE AND VERY EARLY PRINTING, WITH THE LEAF GG4 WHICH IS USUALLY LACKING. This is only the third or fourth printing in English of Boccaccio's De Casibus Virorurn ILlustrium, following Pynson's earlier printings of 1494 and 1527, Richard Tottell reissued the work in 1554 and it has not been clearly determined whether Tottell's edition or Wayland's was completed first. This especially handsome copy retains the final leaf Gg4, which is usually lacking according to STC. It is bound after the titlepage and comprises the rare title for A Memorial of Such Princes, as since the Tyme of King Richard the Seconds, Have Been Unfortunate in the Realme of England (SIC 1246), and was apparently intended for a work to be issued along with De Casibus which was suppressed for religious and political reasons during Mary's reign. John Lydgate's translation of Boccaccio's moralistic tales of the misfortunes of famous people was made from the 1476 French version by Laurence de Premierfait. The Latin original text was first printed circa 1474-75. De casibus is an encyclopedia of historical biographies dealing with the calamities of famous people starting with the biblical Adam, going to mythological and ancient people, then to people of Boccaccio's own time in the fourteenth century. The work was so successful it spawned what has been referred to as the 'De casibus tradition', it influenced many other famous authors, such as Geoffrey Chaucer. This copy with the provenance of John Wesley De Kay, self-made millionaire, American entrepreneur, playwright, author, and eccentric socialite. Born in Iowa to Dutch immigrants in 1872, De Kay apprenticed as a printer and eventually owned several newspapers and a sizable cattle ranch. In 1899, De Kay moved to Mexico and with the money he had made in his businesses purchased a concession for operating meatpacking plants. By 1909 De Kay's company, Popo, was one of the largest slaughtering and meat-distribution operations in North America, with a book value of over US $22 million ($500 billion in today's value). A published author and known socialite, his first produced play, "Judas", managed to get itself banned in New York, Boston and Philadelphia. Bookseller Inventory # 26390

Item Description: (In fine:) Stampado in Venetia : per maistro Zuanne de Trino chimato [sic] Tacuino, m.d.vi adi vi de marzo (Venezia, Giovanni da Trino 6 marzo 1506), 1506. Book Condition: molto buono. in-4, ff. (154), leg. 600sca piena pergamena, titolo ms. al dorso. Al titolo raffinata silografia a mezza pag. che raffigura un trionfo di donne famose, di evidente l'ispirazione al "Polifilo", con iscrizione "Lucrecia Perusina" (Lucrezia Baglioni Vitelli, cui Vincenzo Bagli dedica l'edizione). Nel testo, 105 silografie (alcune ripetute) con ritratti di donne a figura intera, ambientate in variati paesaggi. La maggior parte è ottenuta mediante l'impressione di un piccolo legno con differenti volti femminili, e del legno con il corpo ed il paesaggio, in modo da variare il più possibile le figure. Non ci risulta che questo geniale (e tecnicamente complesso, seppur non raffinato) procedimento, sia stato attuato in alcuna altra edizione. Prima traduzione italiana, ad opera di Vincenzo Bagli, di quest'opera, sapiente miscela tra l'erudizione storica e la novella, dedicata dal Boccaccio alla bellissima Andrea Acciauoli. Scritta dopo il 1360, contiene le biografie di 104 donne illustri, da Eva alla regina Giovanna di Napoli. Precedono il testo la dedica del traduttore a Lucrezia Baglioni, ed un Proemio. Splendida edizione volgare figurata, alquanto rara e dalle inusuali e caratteristiche iconografie. Buon esemplare, puro (piccole tarlature restaurate in parti bianche del foglio di titolo). "L'abbigliamento rieccheggia quello di Caterina Cornaro di Gentile Bellini. La maggior parte delle silografie è ottenuta con l'impressione di due legni, sì che con un numero ristretto di legni combinati e per di più usando più volte a rotazione la stessa combinazione, si è ottenuto un folto gruppo. Talune vignette hanno anche un valore ambientale, e sanno già di garbata scenetta di genere." (Mostra di Certaldo, 1975, n. 40). Sander 1088. Essling 1505. Cat. Dyson Perrins 178.

Item Description: A Londres (i.e. Paris, Prault), 1757. With 5 engr. pictorial titles, engr. frontispiece portrait of Boccaccio in vol. I, 110 plates, and 97 tail-pieces after Gravelot, Boucher, Cochin and Eisen, engr. by Aliamet, Baquoy, Flipart, Legrand, Lemire, Lempereur, a.o., engr. lettered head-pieces. 8vo. Contemp. red morocco, flat spines with two labels richly gilt, triple gilt fillet around sides with corner fleurons, outer and inner gilt dentelles, edges gilt. With engr. heraldic exlibris (name erased). A Londres (i.e. Paris, Prault), 1757-61. Superb set of this sought-after edition, one of the most exquisitely illustrated French publications of the time. It uses the French translation of the 16th-century writer Jean-Antoine Le Maçon who prepared it for Marguerite de Valois, and contains the "Vie de Jean Bocace, poete Florentin" by Philippe-Matthieu Villani. Prault published an Italian version the same year, with the same illustrations, which is dated 1757 throughout and, according to the bibliographers, takes precedence. "Un des livres illustrés des plus réussis de tout le XVIIIe siècle" (Cohen, p. 158). Most illustrations are the work of Gravelot (Hubert-François Bourguignon). Ray writes that "though other artists participated in its illustration, the 'Decarmeron' belongs to Gravelot. He designed 89 of its 111 plates and all 97 of its tailpieces, the most extensive undertaking of his career as an illustrator. Boccaccio's lively tales of varied action and amorous intrigue were well suited to Gravelot's temperament. The convention by which he transposed their settings and costume to the France of his own day made it possible for him to exercise his special talent for depicting the social world around him". - Cohen/de Ricci 160-61; Lewine 70-71 ("more valued in France than the original Italian edition"); Sander 183 ("plus recherchée"); Quérard, La France littéraire I, 361.

Item Description: Londra [i.e., Paris], 1757. First Edition with these Illustrations. 222 x 140 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). Five volumes. Edited by Filippo di Matteo Villani. First Edition with these Illustrations. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, covers with gilt fillet border, flat spines divided into six panels by plain gilt rules, three panels with small floral tool at center, two with titling, and one with a rampant lion and saltire from the Longe family crest, gilt-ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Engraved title in each volume, many engraved vignette headpieces and tailpieces, and 111 VERY FINE ENGRAVED PLATES (including frontispiece portrait in first volume), primarily AFTER DRAWINGS BY GRAVELOT, but also after EISEN, BOUCHER, and COCHIN. Tissue guards (perhaps original) for all engraved matter. A Large Paper Copy printed on Papier de Hollande. Front pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of Francis Longe, Spixworth Park, Norfolk; final volume with ink monogram "ME" on last page. Two instances of ink marginalia noting reversed order of plates. Cohen-de Ricci 158 ("un des livres illustrés de plus réussis de tout le XVIIIe siècle"); Ray 15; Brunet I, 1003. Boards just a shade brighter than the spines, negligible rubbing to joints and extremities, covers with a couple of small dark spots, occasional minor smudges to the (extremely wide) margins, other trivial imperfections, but A VERY FINE CONTEMPORARY COPY--unusually clean, fresh, and bright inside and out. This is a very special Large Paper Copy in period morocco of one of the most famous and charming illustrated books of the 18th century, and it may be the supreme example of refined libertine illustration of the period. Owen Holloway calls this one of the four masterpieces of book illustration at the end of the Rococo period. And Ray is expansive in his praise, calling the work simply "one of the masterpieces of the illustrated book." Although he had as collaborators on this work some of the outstanding French artists of the 18th century, Gravelot (born Hubert-François-Bourguignon, 1699-1773) was chiefly responsible for its production, designing 89 of its 222 plates and all 97 of its immensely delightful tailpieces. In this, the most ambitious undertaking of his career, Gravelot gave Boccaccio's narrative the settings and costumes of 18th century France, and this transposition "made it possible for him to exercise his special talent for depicting the social world around him. For the most part, his figures are young, the women graceful and pretty, the men lithe and handsome . . . . All levels of life are presented, from the peasant in his hovel to the king in his palace. Every variety of interior is there, from boudoirs and bedrooms to dining rooms and salons. Animated street scenes alternate with glimpses of gardens and farms, forests and river banks. The human condition has rarely been so attractively displayed. Yet this is only the beginning . . . . Gravelot's tailpieces complete what his plates have begun. They are peopled by amusing children, who . . . usually play their parts in interpreting Boccaccio's text." (Ray) Our handsome set was bound for Francis Longe (1748-1812), a gentleman who served as sheriff of Norfolk and whose library warrants mention in Quaritch's "Dictionary of Book Collectors." The "Catalogue of British and American Book Plates" held by the British Museum lists two different bookplates for Longe (3385 and 3386). This is a very special Large Paper Copy in period morocco of one of the most famous and charming illustrated books of the 18th century, and it may be the supreme example of refined libertine illustration of the period. Owen Holloway calls this one of the four masterpieces of book illustration at the end of the Rococo period. And Ray is expansive in his praise, calling the work simply "one of the masterpieces of the illustrated book."

Item Description: La fama parla. Chi al mondo acquistar vole honor e gloria. (In fine:) Stampado in Venetia : per maistro Zuanne de Trino chimato [sic] Tacuino, m.d.vi adi vi de marzo (1506), 1506. Book Condition: molto buono. in-4, ff. n.n. 154, (manca il primo fascicolo; i 6 fogli in ottimo facsimile) leg. antica piena pergamena. Al titolo raffinata silografia a mezza pag. che raffigura un trionfo di donne famose, di evidente ispirazione al "Polifilo", con iscrizione "Lucrecia Perusina" (Lucrezia Baglioni Vitelli, cui Vincenzo Bagli dedica l'edizione). Nel testo, 105 silografie (alcune ripetute) con ritratti di donne a figura intera, ambientate in variati paesaggi. La maggior parte è ottenuta mediante l'impressione di un piccolo legno con differenti volti femminili, e del legno con il corpo ed il paesaggio, in modo da variare il più possibile le figure. Non ci risulta che questo geniale (e tecnicamente complesso, seppur non raffinato) procedimento, sia stato attuato in alcuna altra edizione. Prima traduzione italiana, ad opera di Vincenzo Bagli, di quest'opera, sapiente miscela tra l'erudizione storica e la novella, dedicata dal Boccaccio alla bellissima Andrea Acciauoli. Scritta dopo il 1360, contiene le biografie di 104 donne illustri, da Eva alla regina Giovanna di Napoli. Precedono il testo la dedica del traduttore a Lucrezia Baglioni, ed un Proemio. Splendida edizione volgare figurata, alquanto rara e dalle inusuali e caratteristiche iconografie. "L'abbigliamento rieccheggia quello di Caterina Cornaro di Gentile Bellini. La maggior parte delle silografie è ottenuta con l'impressione di due legni, sì che con un numero ristretto di legni combinati e per di più usando più volte a rotazione la stessa combinazione, si è ottenuto un folto gruppo. Talune vignette hanno anche un valore ambientale, e sanno già di garbata scenetta di genere." (Mostra di Certaldo, 1975, n. 40). Buon esempl., malgrado i primi 6 fogli facsimilati e macchie d'inchiostro su 5 ff. Sander 1088. Essling 1505. Cat. Dyson Perrins 178. Bacchi della Lega 29.6. Bookseller Inventory # 0000000000950

Item Description: P. Alex. pag. Benacenses. .F. Bena. .V. .V. (Alessandro Paganino), Toscolano Maderno, 1520. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good. 8vo. ff. 107, (i). A-N8, O4. Italic letter. Capital spaces with guide letters, ms. capitals added, early acquisition note of ‘Jo. Antonius Culletus, 1573’ on recto of last, another version at head of title, dated a year later, Graham Pollard’s acquisition note in pencil on rear pastedown, at Hodgsons in 1954 for £3/10s, C19th bibliographical note on verso of last. Light age yellowing, minor marginal water-stains in places, the odd thumb mark, title fractionally dusty. A very good copy, in lovely contemporary black morocco, covers gilt and triple blind ruled to a panel design with interlacing gilt rules in central panel, small gilt stars, moons, and fleur de lys, to corners, large gilt fleuron at centre, spine with three raised bands, head and tail of spine expertly restored, all edges gilt and richly gauffered, slightly rubbed and cracked in places, eps. old but later. Beautifully bound copy of this rare edition of Boccaccio’s Fiammetta, finely printed in Paganino’s Italic, in imitation of the Aldine. The binding is similar in design and use of tools to a folio binding from Rome illustrated in De Marinis vol. I 833 plate CXXXVIII, though inevitably a simpler version in octavo. It is quite simple but very striking and elegant, most appropriate for the text and printing within. "In what has been called the first psychological novel in a modern language, "the Elegy of Lady Fiammetta", (Boccaccio) successfully bridged the gap between allegory and introspective narrative by giving shape to a character who encompasses realistic and archetypal qualities. .Scholars agree on the date of composition of The Elegy of Lady Fiammetta established between 1343 and 1345. Boccaccio was in his early thirties and was trying to make a name for himself in Florence, as a citizen and Poet, after having spent many years in Naples. The work is generally recognized as a turning point in his career. The large number of manuscripts of the Elegy - over seventy - .seems to prove its popularity in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. As the first psychological novel in a modern language and a forerunner of stream-of-consciousness fiction, the .Fiammetta is one of the earliest and most remarkable, if still largely unexplored, artistic achievements of European literature. . The extraordinary nature of the Elegy stems partially from the crucial fact that it was created by a man who writes pretending to be a woman. Furthermore, this woman, the Lady Fiammetta, writes in the first person and announces herself from the very outset as an unspoken feminist." Mariangela Causa-Steindler. Paganino was a most interesting and innovative printer who saw Aldus Manutius as his inspiration. He was the first printer of the Qur’an, printed entirely in Arabic, for export. "Even more interesting [of the followers of Aldus] was . printer-publisher Alessandro Paganino of Toscolano, whose admiration for Aldus became a strong stimulus to achieve something new in the field of typography. Although Brunet defined the so-called "Paganini" type as bizarre, there were actually no less than five distinct designs. They reflected the successive phases of a graphic study intended as the progressive assimilation of the Roman and italic types. Pagnini's laborious experimentation resulted in an archaic imprint that influenced not only the design of type but the entire graphic composition of the page. Indeed it was Paganini who had recognized Aldus's commitment to innovation as an example worthy of being followed". Luigi Balsamo. "One other name - that of Alessandro Paganino - calls for special notice, on account of his peculiar upright italic type. Paganino set up his press first of all at Toscolano, on the Lake of Garda, but subsequently removed to Venice, and printed there down to the year 1531." H Brown, ‘The Venetian printing press’. A lovely copy with most appropriate combination of text, binding and printing. BM STC It. C16th. p. 108. Brunet I 1009. Not in Adams or Gamba. Italian. Bookseller Inventory # L1521

Tizzone fu un noto ed operoso collaboratore culturale dell'editoria veneziana cinquecentesca, che nel 1524 approntò l'edizione dell'Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta e curò, negli anni successivi, le Stanze del Poliziano, il Filocolo e la Teseida appunto, ove appare costante la sua preoccupazione di restituire i testi al loro aspetto originario.

Item Description: Boschi, Laghi, Fiumi, Stagni, Paluci, Golfi e Mari. poste sono le prouincie di tutto 'l mondo.Asia, Europa e Aphrica. Venezia, Gregorio de' Gregori, s.d., 1530 ca.], 1530. Book Condition: molto buono. in-4, ff. (4), LXX (segn.: *2, A-H8, I6), leg. in cartonato e mezza pelle (difetti al dorso). Prima edizione della traduzione italiana del ''De montibus.'', una sorta di dizionario dei nomi geografici che s'incontrano negli scrittori classici e moderni. L'opera del Boccaccio apparve per la prima volta nel 1473 presso la bottega del Vindelinus; il volgarizzamento risale presumibilmente ai primi decenni del XVI secolo ed è opera del veneziano Niccolò Liburnio (1474-1557), canonico della basilica di S. Marco e studioso dei tre grandi trecentisti, che curò anche un ampliamento del testo ''Et in fine per lo sopradetto M. Nicolo Liburnio poste sono le prouincie di tutto'l mondo, cioe d'Asia, Europa, et Aphrica.

Item Description: Nuovamente corretto e con diligentia stampato. Firenze, heredi di Phil di Giunta, 1527 (ma Venezia, Pasinello, 1729), 1729. Book Condition: molto buono. in-4 (mm 237x165), ff. (8, ult. b.), 248, impresa tipografica giuntina all'inizio ed in fine. Bella legatura intarsiata coeva, probabilmente romana, in pelle, con estesa e varia decorazione in oro al dorso a nervi ed ai piatti e (bordure varie, tondi ai piccoli ferri, intrecci lineari), tagli dorati e cesellati, dentelle int. Fedele contraffazione settecentesca impressa dal Pasinello per cura di Stefano Orlandelli, a spese di Joseph Smith, console inglese a Venezia nel 1729, tirata in soli 300 esempl. (Bacchi della Lega, p. 36, per probabile errore tip. parla di trenta esempl.). L'edizione 1527 si pose come versione universalmente riconosciuta del testo sino a quella del Manelli del 1761, divenendo un simbolo della libera repubblica fiorentina, in quanto, come ebbe a dire il Foscolo, quasi tutti coloro che vi lavorarono (Bernardo Segni, Pier Vettori, Baccio e Bartolomeo Cavalcanti, Francesco Guidetti) morirono combattendo contro i Medici. La mitica rarità di quell'edizione indusse il Console Smith a finanziare nel 1729 questa preziosa contraffazione. Bellissimo esempl., assai marginoso (lievi restauri alle cerniere). Gamba, 172, note. Zambrini, 87. Cat. Mostra Boccaccio Bibl. Laurenziana, II, 71. Olschki, Cat. XCV, n. 20. Bacchi della Lega, p.36. Bookseller Inventory # 0000000003772
