Gerson, Jean
First edition and the only separate edition; Gerson (1362-1428) was a French theologian, educator, scholar, poet and philosopher, at some point a leader of the conciliar movement for the Catholic Church reform which lead to the ending of the Great Schism, widely known for the two simultaneous Popes (Rome and Avignon), and a significant figure in the Council of Constance: "the most attractive and the most influential theological leader of the first half of the fifteenth century" (Schaff, History of the Christian Church , Vol. IV. 207). It is attributed to Gerson As Chancellor of the University of Paris he encouraged those currents of reform that advocated a more personal and mystical religion than had been so far taught in school, aiming to complement the rationalism of high scholasticism with contemplation and practical piety. "It would be difficult to find anywhere ideas that better sum up the whole tradition of Christian Spirituality than what we find in the pages that [Gerson] wrote." (Jean Gerson: Mystic and Reformer . Preface, x) The date of this edition is unclear, Goff dates it c.1470 whilst GW 1468. This work was usually found printed alongside the Imitatio Christi, which was erroneously attributed to Gerson, it was only later scholarship that proved that in fact the Imitatio was the creation of Kempis; however, this is testament to the high estimation Gerson had as spiritual guide in the later Middle Ages. The Meditatione Cordis was almost as famous as the Imitatio. Copinger 7628; Pellechet, nº 5181 (collation error) - BMC, 1, p. 184 - Goff, G-231. G … [Click Below for Full Description]

PIGAFETTA, Filippo and Duarte LOPEZ.
Adams L-1468 (lacking 1 map); Brunet IV, col. 651 (without the plates); Cox I, pp. 354-355; Gay, Bibl. de l'Afrique et l'Arabe 3077 (without the maps); for the maps: Betz, The mapping of Africa 34-36, 186; Norwich, Africa 16. First edition of one of the main sources for authentic information on central Africa. Filippo Pigafetta, a relative of Antonio Pigafetta, Magellan's companion on his first circumnavigation of the world, based his work on the information he collected from the Portuguese traveller Duarte Lopez, who sailed to the Congo in 1578 and stayed in Loanda until 1587. Pigafetta's important and beautifully illustrated account deals with the geography of the country, its animals, the inhabitants and their customs, the Portuguese trade, missionary activities, etc. Of special interest are his history and descriptions of Congolese tribes and their kings. It remained the main source for information on the Congo and central Africa up to the middle of the 19th century. The fine and decorative map of Africa includes the Red Sea and parts of the Arabian Peninsula.With the maps repaired and mounted on cloth, and a tear repaired in 1 folding plate, slightly foxed, margins of the plates frayed (without affecting the images, but in one case reaching the border). Some small stains on the binding and the spine a bit worn. Good copy, complete with all the maps and plates. [Attributes: First Edition]

SERENUS SAMMONICUS, Quintus.
Durling 4190; Heirs of Hippocrates 44; Renouard, Colines, p. 218; USTC 146566 (6 copies); Wellcome I, 5938. A rare collection of remedies intended for the use of the poor, in the form of a poem of 1115 hexameters in 65 chapters, written early in the third century by either the elder or the younger Quintus Serenus Sammonicus, here printed and published by the great Paris printer Simon de Colines: the second edition to be edited by the Cologne physician Johannes Caesarius (1468?-1550). De Colines's typography and presswork are stunning and the paper is of the highest quality. The earlier chapters contain medicinal recipes for ailments of various body parts, arranged from head to foot. The later chapters provide remedies for wounds, fever, broken bones, dislocated bones, insomnia, lethargy, epilepsy, jaundice, warts, etc. It mixes traditional herbal medicines, many now back in fashion, with incantations and other magic now regarded as superstitious or bizarre. It is followed, beginning on the verso of leaf 24, by De ponderibus & mensuris, a shorter poem attributed to Quintus Remmius Palaemon (fl. ca. 48 AD), but now believed to have been written in or around the fifth century. It is largely a memory aid for weights and measures and introduced the word "gramma" (gram) as a unit of weight.With an occasional contemporary or near contemporary manuscript note in the generous fore-edge margin. In very good condition and only slightly trimmed. The binding shows a couple small superficial scratches but is also very good.
