[PANCHATANTRA/BIDPAI]. [CAPUA, Johannes de, and Anton von PFORR (translators)].
Metzner & Raabe, Kat. ill. Fabelausg. 1461-1990, no. 20, 3; VD16 J 381 (6 copies); cf. Fabula Docet 29. Rare early 16th-century German edition of the ancient Sanskrit Panchatantra fables, a classic of the genre, thought to have been assembled ca. 200 BC out of stories from an even older oral tradition. The title means "five books" and the stories became known in Europe through Hebrew translations of Arabic versions under the name Bidpai. Composed as a series of fables in a frame story (sometimes several layers of frame stories), it contains about 140 fables featuring animals as a mirror for human behaviour and was intended to educate people, especially young rulers. The various sections are designed to teach wisdom, courtesy correct conduct for princes and other virtuous and practical traits. The fables were translated into Greek and Hebrew in the Middle Ages from Arabic versions that were derived from Persian translations of the Sanskrit. Johannes de Capua translated the Hebrew into Latin around 1200, setting the standard for most European versions, which took on a life of their own.With a tear in the title-page and a few other minor defects skilfully repaired, and some unobtrusive water stains, but generally in good condition.

Three rare editions of popular works on alchemy, including tips to help common people recognize charlatans (presented from an anti-Paracelsian point of view). Ad 1: Early work on minerals and mining, still full of supernatural belief but also full of observations and facts gained from nature and experience. Kertzenmacher compiled his book in part from a number of earlier works, including the Rechter Gebrauch d'Alchimei from 1531. The book gives numerous recipes for pigments, oils, distilled waters, and all sorts of minerals and metals, including a large section devoted to the transmutation and separation of gold and silver. It includes a Mediaeval treatise by Gilbertus Cardinal on the dissolution of metals, polishing of gems and other practical applications of chemistry.Ad 2: Two dialogues on alchemy, part 1 being the first German edition of a dialogue ascribed to Morienus Romanus, a 12th-century Christian who studied under the Arabic scholar Abfar in Alexandria and wrote in Arabic. Like Kertzenmacher's book, it focusses primarily on the practical use of alchemical knowledge. Part 2 is the first edition of a German dialogue "Von der Kunst Alchimisterey" (on the art of alchemy) between Chrysophilus and Theophrastus, arguing that alchemy has a sound ba … [Click Below for Full Description]

Niet in Waller, Muller, De Vries, Scheepers"."Verzameling liefdesgeschiedenissen waarin ook de figuur van Don Quichot af en toe opduikt. Het boek heeft evenwel niets te maken met Cervantes' meesterwerk. Het is een vertaling van 'Le desespoir amoureux avec les nouvelles visions de Don Quichotte', dat eveneens in 1715 was verschenen bij Josua Steenhouwer & Hermannus Uytwerf in Amsterdam. Volgens de onbekende vertaler was dit boek weer een bewerking van 'Homicidio de Fidelidad y la Defense del Honor', in 1619 in Parijs uitgekomen."

[TORINUS (THORER), Albanus (ed).].
Adams S1461; Durling 4351; Parkinson 2410. First edition of a collection of four medical works, compiled by the Swiss physician Albanus Torinus (1489-1550). The main part of the work consists of De re medica, also known as Medicina Pliniana, a very popular medical text during the Middle Ages. Compiled in the fourth century by an anonymous author, it is generally ascribed to Plinius Valerianus, also called pseudo-Plinius, since it mainly derived from Pliny the Elder's Historia naturalis. Consisting of five books, it gives various medicines and treatments for different diseases, ailments, wounds, tumours etc. Besides Pliny the Elder, the work is heavily based on the works of Galen and Dioscorides, all highly esteemed in the Arabic world.The work also contains three other medical works from different authors. "The contents are all either spurious works or later compilations from genuine works of the authors to whom they are attributed" (Durling). It starts with an introduction to "the art of healing", ascribed to Soranus of Ephesus. The second text is by Oribasius, a Greek medical writer from the fourth century BC. According to Durling, the text is an extract from the first chapter of his Euporista ad Eunapium. The work closes with a botanical text, De virtutibus herbarum, ascribed to Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis, but written by an anonymous author from the fourth century, known as Pseudo-Apuleius. In one of the manuscripts Torinus used, the text was ascribed to the famous Italian physician Antonio Musa Brassavola (1500-1555), an expert on the works of Galen and heavily influen … [Click Below for Full Description]

- The rare map embracing Poland and the Ukraine from the ‘Rome Ptolemy’, a monument in the early history of engraving and the cartography of Eastern Europe. This exquisitely engraved incunable map is one of the earliest printed maps to focus on what is now Poland, Ukraine and parts of Slovakia, Romania, Moldova and Russia. It depicts the Ancient Roman conception of the region as proscribed by Claudius Ptolemy (c. 150 AD), and while initially not all that familiar to the modern viewer, upon closer examination, the map takes one on a fascinating historical journey. The map extends from what is now Poland down diagonally beyond the ‘Tanais Fluvius’ (Don River) to the edges of the Caucuses. The Baltic Sea, called here the ‘Oceanus Sarmaticus’, occupies the upper left, while the Black Sea, the ‘Pontus Euxinus’ and the outsized ‘Palus Meotis’ (Sea of Azov), occupies the lower right. The Carpathian Mountains and other ranges run across the map in virtuously engraved rills. The location of Poland is can be discerned by the labelling of the ‘Vistula Fluvius’ (Vistula). ‘Sarmatia Europae’ and ‘Sarmatie Asiatice’ refer to the land of the Sarmatians. The Sarmatians were an Iranian people who occupied large parts of the Eurasian Steppe and parts of the Eastern Europe from the 5th Century BC to the 4th Century AD. They were very active during the time that Ptolemy conceived the antecedent of the present map. The Sarmatians lands were divided into two distinct groups, the European and Asian Sarmatians, as note … [Click Below for Full Description]
