'Ruiz Binder'.- Giambullari (Pier Francesco) Historia dell'Europa... nella quale ordinatamente si trattano le cose successe in questa parte del mondo dall'anno Dccc fino al 913 Di nostra Salute... , first edition, collation: *4, **4, ***4, ****4, A-Z4, Aa-Ss4, Tt2, title with woodcut printer's device to title and portrait verso, woodcut historiated initials, title lightly soiled and with small repair, affecting a few letters of portrait frame verso, Venice, Francesco Senese, 1566 bound with Guicciardini (Lodovico) Commentarii... Delle cose più memorabili seguite in Europa: specialmente in questi paesi bassi, dalla pace di Cambrai, del mDxxix, insino a tutto l'anno m.D.lx. Libri tre..., second edition, collation: a8, b4, A-K8, title with woodcut printer's device and historiated initials, Venice, Domenico Farri, 1566, together 2 works in 1 vol., occasional light staining, contemporary Roman morocco by the 'Ruiz Binder', central arms of Ruiz (a lion rampant, stamped in gold, holding a fleur-de-lis stamped in silver, within a cartouche flanked by the initials 'I R'), all within a rich border of gilt and tooled fillets, and gilt floral roll, spine ends and corners repaired, gilt gauffered edges, little rubbed, small 4to (book block 208 x 142mm; binding 213 x 157mm.) ⁂ Bound by the 'Ruiz Binder' and bringing together two important histories of Europe by Florentine scholars. The works were finely bound around 1570 for Jeronímo Ruiz, member of a distinguished Valencia family living in Rome and associated with the Curia. His uncle Felipe (1512-1582) was secretary of the Papal Dataria. Hobson records 24 volumes bearing Ruiz's arms, all bound by the same Roman binder known as the 'Ruiz Binder', in light of his principal client. "Jeronimo had a taste for history and owned works by Lucius Florus, Dio Cassius, Sallust, Thucydides and Polybius, as well as Bembo's history of Venice, Olaus Magnus's of Scandinavia, Giambullari's of Europe, and both Cieza de Leon's and Zarate's of Peru [...] But he was no scholar. All the books are in Italian except a copy of Francesco Maurolico's Martyrologium, Venice 1568" (Hobson-Culot, Italian and French 16th-Century Bookbindings, p. 49). For the bindings made for Jeronímo Ruiz, the Roman craftsman used the same tools already employed by Maestro Luigi, one of three binders active in Rome and working for Giovanni Battista Grimaldi between 1536 and 1565. Hobson suggests that the 'Ruiz Binder' may be his successor. The Ruiz arms are stamped within the usual cartouche employed by this Roman binder. The present binding is one of 24 recorded in Hobson's census. The volume later entered the rich library of cardinal Giuseppe Renato Imperiali, sold in Rome in 1711. Provenance: Jeronímo Ruiz (sixteenth century armorial binding); from the library of Cardinal Giuseppe Renato Imperiali (1651-1737; stamp 'Ex. Bibl. Ios. Ren. Card. Imperialis' on the first title-page; see Bibliothecae Josephi Renati Imperialis Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae, Romae 1711, in the Appendix, p. 554); 'De Pigis' (ownership inscription on the first title-page); Count Orazio Samminiatelli (twentieth century, Perignano, near Pisa; see A. Hobson, Apollo and Pegasus, no. 19). Literature: I: EDIT 16 CNCE 20914 II: Adams G-1534; EDIT 16 CNCE 22315. Binding: Hobson, Apollo and Pegasus, Amsterdam 1975, no. 19; Hobson-Culot, Italian and French 16th-Century Bookbindings, no. 17.
