Item Description: Carolum Bohn,, Hamburgi, 1754. Cm. 17, pp. (12) 320 (34). Antiporta incisa e vignetta al frontespizio. Leg. ottocentesca in mezza pelle con titoli in oro al dorso. Arrossature causate dalla qualità della carta, peraltro discreto esemplare. Celebre opera che affascinò letterati italiani e soprattutto francesi per almeno due secoli. Dell’autore, di Stellata vicino Ferrara, si hanno scarse notizie e i biografi lo descrivono talvolta come ecclesiastico oppure medico, alchimista o addirittura mago. Pubblicata con uno pseudonimo per involarsi alle ricerche dell’inquisizione, l’opera si distingue per alcuni passi arditissimi contro il mondo ecclesiastico tanto che, scoperti solo dopo la morte dell’autore, la censura aveva in animo di dissotterrare il corpo del Manzolli e arderlo per empietà.

Item Description: Joannem Hofhout, Rotterodami, 1722. Book Condition: MOLTO BUONO (VERY GOOD). 8vo (152x98 mm); leg. coeva in piena pelle bruna marezzata, con dorso a cinque nervi, caselle al dorso con decori floreali dorati, titolo a caratteri dorati su tassello in pelle rossa al dorso, tagli colorati a spruzzo di rosso; pp. 16, 407, (47); bella vignetta al frontespizio; testatine, capilettera e finalini finemente incisi; frontespizio a caratteri neri e rossi. Bella edizione di questo trattato di morale sotto forma di lungo poema in esametri lungo circa diecimila versi, diviso in dodici libri, in cui ogni canto è dedicato ad un segno zodiacale, dedicato ad Ercole d'Este, stampato originariamente a Venezia nel 1535 e posto all'indice nel 1558 perchè dichiarato eretico a causa dell'empietà delle dottrine e della satira degli ecclesiastici, che affascinò letterati italiani e stranieri per almeno due secoli, con le divagazioni morali e metafisiche e gli spunti satirici che contiene (riferiti alla vita dissoluta dei monaci, all'orgoglio del Papa e ai pregiudizi dell'epoca). L'opera, pubblicata con lo pseudonimo di Marcello Palingenio Stellato, si distingue per alcuni passi arditi, alla cui scoperta, avvenuta dopo la morte dell'autore, le sue ossa furono levate dalla tomba e date al rogo per empietà dall'Inquisizione. Le scarse notizie biografiche sull'autore, Pietro Angelo Manzolli di Stellata presso Ferrara, lo descrivono ora come ecclesiastico, ora come medico, alchimista, addirittura mago. Prov.: Ex libris di pregio su etichetta incollata al contropiatto anteriore, con stemma nobiliare e motto "Virtus nobilitat genus". Rif.: IT\ICCU\TO0E\006519. OCLC, 461364691. Bibl. esoterica 2929 (ed. 1731); Caillet 7096; Brunet IV-317. Cond.: Qualche traccia d'usura alla legatura (in particolare ad un angolo). Opera completa, in ottime condizioni generali. -- Rel. de l'époque: plein veau tacheté, dos fleuronné doré à nerfs, roul. dorée sur les coupes, tr. jaspées (coins émoussés avec pet. manque à 1 coin); (galerie de vers marg. in fine). Traité de morale en vers invitant le lecteur à "développer le sens de sa vie personnelle, à se cultiver et à s'épanouir dans la sagesse qui apporte le salut" (originale: Venise, entre 1534 et 1538). Contrairement à ce que pourrait faire croire le titre, l'auteur ne traite pas d'astrologie mais se moque de la mythologie, de la vie débauchée des moines, l'orgueil du pape et des préjugés de l'époque. Également connu sous l'anagramme de Marcellus Palingenius, Manzolli (Rome, c. 1500) fut brûlé par l'Inquisition sous prétexte de magie. Provenance: "virtus nobilitat genus" (ex-libris armorié). -- BEAUTIFUL EDITION OF THIS TREATISE ON ETHICS WRITTEN IN THE FORM OF A LONG POEM, DIVIDED INTO TWELVE BOOKS, EACH ONE DEDICATED TO A ZODIACAL SIGN. A few trace of use at the binding (particularly at a corner). Complete copy, in very good condition. 375g. Bookseller Inventory # 841

Marcelli Palingenii Stellati Poetae Zodiacus vitae, id: PALINGENIUS.

Item Description: Rotterdam (Rotterodami), Apud Joannem Hofhout, 1722., 1722. 8vo. XVI (including frontispiece),407;(47 index) p. Vellum 15.5 cm (Details: 5 thongs laced through the joints. Red morocco shield on the back. The frontispiece, designed and executed by Jan Goeree, depicts an allegorical scene, which may refer passages in the second and sixth book of the 'Zodiacus Vitae', called Taurus and Virgo. It shows a laureated woman, Poetry, who shakes hands with death, and at the same time clutches in her left arm a bust of the virtuous goddess of wisdom Athena. Her feet rest on a big bag of gold and a scepter. Next to her stands a winged putto, scourge at hand, who reveals gold and other treasures of the church that lay hidden below a piece of cloth. Above them, on a monument, the wellknown scene of Hercules on the crossroads, where he meets two women, personifications of Virtue and Vice. They both advice Hercules to follow the road they show him. Virtue, depicted here as Athena, points at a narrow rocky and steep path at the end of which he will find a reward. Vice, stripped to the waist, offers Hercules pleasure, crowns and wealth; she points at the easy road. The message is clear, the highest good can not be found in wealth and profane goods but in virtue combined with wisdom. At the end of the sixth book, Virgo, the poet concludes, having considered the endless miseries of humankind, that we should not fear death, but that we must ambrace her/him as a safe haven. The woodcut printer's mark shows the intertwined initials of the publisher Johannes Hofhout. The title is printed in red and black. Each of the 12 songs is preceded by a useful synopsis) (Condition: Vellum soiled, and slightly worn at the extremes. Old ownership entry on the title) (Note: The real name of the Italian neolatin poet Marcello Palingenio Stellato, or in Latin Marcellus Palingenius Stellatus, was in 1725 revealed by I. Facciolati in a letter to the German bibliographer J.A. Fabricius. Marcello Palingenio is an anagram for the name of the Italian courtier Pier Angelo Manzol(l)i, born to a humble family in La Stellata, near Ferrara, between 1500 and 1503. He died before 1558. Recent research (Bacchelli 1985) points in a completely different direction. On the basis of indications in the privilege for the printing of the Zodiacus, granted in Venice in 1535 to one Marcellus Stellato Neapolitanus, it is thought that Marcellus may have been born in Campania, and that his real name was Marcello Stellato (or Stellati), a family name attested in area of Campania, thus denying the attribution of the poem to Pier Angelo Manzoli. A weak point is that the appellation 'Palingenio' is here hard to explain. Anyway, of the author's life little is known. By his frequent allusions to physicians throughout the poem it is assumed that he was a medical doctor, or that he suffered from abuse. He calls them 'mankinds butchers under a noble name', 'Carnifices hominum sub honesto nomine fiunt'. (Liber 5, Leo, verse 824)) He was at one point suspected of heterodoxy, perhaps because he was a member of the Calvinist circle of Renata d'Este. After his death his bones were dug up, following a process of heresy under pope Paulus III, and burned at the stake. A Vatican codex, which includes documents of the Congregation of the Index of the years 1571-90, informs us that the unearthing of Marcello,'nihil credens neque divinitatem Christi', took place in Cesena, without, however, indicating the date, while in November 1558 the Bolognese Jesuit Francesco Palmio informed his general G. Lainez that his body was publicly exhumed and burned, because of certain heretic books Palingenius had composed. The cause of this exhumation may well have been his 'Zodiacus Vitae', a poem in 12 songs (9939 hexameters), each song taking its name from one the twelve signs of the Zodiac. It was written between 1520 and 1534, and was dedicated to Ercole II d'Este. These songs do not form a coherent unity, and contain a variety of didactic, moralistic, metaphysical, astronomical and f.

Item Description: 1576. Lugduni, apud Ioannem Tronesium, 1576, 16mo (cm. 7 x 11,5) legatura in piena pelle coeva, dorso a tre snodi, con fregi in oro al dorso e ai piatti, dorso e punte restaurate, pp. 366-(78). Manzolli attaccò i dissoluti costumi del suo tempo in un ampio discorso filosofico sulla natura e sul comportamento umano. La sua analisi si estendeva al clero e al papato che egli esecrava per la loro ipocrisia. Opinioni così dure non potevano passare sotto silenzio e lo Zodiacus vitae fu ben presto messo all'indice e molte copie delle prime edizioni furono rapidamente distrutte dall'Inquisizione. Il suo autore venne accusato dopo la morte di praticare la magia; il suo corpo venne riesumato e bruciato pubblicamente per ordine dell'Inquisizione.

Item Description: NP, Lugduni [Lyon], 1576. Hardcover, 16mo, 366 +, [lxxxii] pp. Recent suede leather binding, with gilt-stamped leather title label to spine. An early edition of an important work - written in poetic form - of Renaissance astrology, science and hermetic philosophy. Zodiacus Vitae (The Zodiac of Life) was first published in 1530 and comprises twelve 'books', each of which is named after one of the Zodiacal constellations. The author's unorthodox beliefs about the nature of the heavens roused the ire of the Church, and Zodiacus Vitae was one of the first works to be placed on the Papal Index of Forbidden Books, which was established in 1558. The author, usually identified as Pier Angelo Manzoli (ca. 1502- ca. 1543) successfully escaped the full wrath of the Inquisitors by having died some fifteen years earlier, although according to some sources they nonetheless achieved a punishment of sorts by disinterring and burning his bones. Perhaps not surprisingly, the book became enormously popular and went through a number of editions, influencing many including Shakespeare, upon whom it is said to have had a profound effect. A few neat words written in a contemporary hand on the title page, approx. two dozen pages have some light, contemporary underlining, and a word or two of marginalia, otherwise the text is clean with just some light uniform browning, the pages still fresh and supple. The binding is fine, save for a hint of rubbing. Bookseller Inventory # 31958

Item Description: Giovanni Tornes e Guglielmo Gaze, Lione, 1556. Volume in 16° cartonato, titolo manoscritto al dorso, tagli colorati, sguardie, frontespizio inquadrato da ampia cornice silografica (scritte a pennino), 366 pp., 41 carte d'indici. Poema latino in esametri suddiviso in 12 libri come i segni zodiacali in cui però l'astrologia riveste un ruolo marginale, essendo oggetto principale della poesia l'esoterismo, lo studio della pluralità dei mondi e soprattutto la condanna degli abusi ecclesiastici della Curia papale romana con simpatia per le tesi di Lutero e di Erasmo. Ebbe un rapido successo e fu molto apprezzato negli ambienti protestanti e del Nord Europa. Lautore, umanista, medico e poeta nato a Stellata, Ferrara nel 1500 e morto nel 1543, pubblicò quest'opera sotto lo pseudonimo di Marcellus Palingenius (le iniziali dei primi 29 versi del libro I danno proprio lacrostico di questo nome). Dopo la morte, nel 1549, Paolo III istituì un processo contro la sua memoria, le ossa furono riesumate e arse al rogo. Nel 1558 questo lavoro fu messo allIndice. In più che bello stato, corto nel margine superiore, sottolineature a pennino. Rara ed importante edizione. Bookseller Inventory # 6665

Petit in-8, en plein-vélin à recouvrement estampé sur le plat supérieur "IRN" et daté 1594.

Stephanus Pater aet. 61 foelicite sculpsit Ihoani filio inve. 1580". Le premier texte est un poème satirique sur les mauvaises moeurs, contenant de vives attaques contre le Pape et le clergé. Un texte corrosif qui explique sans doute le double cryptage du nom de l'auteur : sous forme de palindrome, dont les premières lettres nous donnent Mercellus Palingenius Stellatus, anagramme du véritable nom de l'auteur, Pierangelo Manzolli, né à Stellata près de Florence. Réunion de trois textes dans une reliure de choix datée, monogrammée et ornée d'une gravures datée et signée ; condition remarquable. Livre ancien. Bookseller Inventory # 1691
