He was known during his lifetime as Doctor Universalis and Doctor Expertus and, late in his life, the term magnus was appended to his name.

DIONYSIOS, Periegetes.
Venice: Francesco Renner de Heilbronn, 1478. Small quarto (192 x 141 mm.), 36 leaves; roman letter with woodcut historiated initials, title printed in red & black; a very good copy in blindstamped calf antique. A highly influential early geographical text, dating from the second century and surviving in manuscript through the Middle Ages to enjoy great popularity in the Renaissance. This Venice printing of 1478 is only the second appearance of the work which was first published in 1477; numerous further editions were to follow in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and today any fifteenth-century editions are notably rare. "De situ orbis habitabilis" gives an account of the known world and its seas, countries, and islands, with some ethnographical notes, and includes sections on both Asia and India. Its popularity during the Renaissance reflected a growing interest in geography as reports began to circulate of newly-discovered lands, as well as the fascination of the humanist scholars with newly-published ancient texts. The text remained influential for several centuries.Dionysios, widely known as Periegetes (the guide) to distinguish him from numerous other authors named Dionysios or Dionysius, wrote his De situ orbis habitabilis ("Descriptive Account of the Habitable World") in Alexandria at the time of Hadrian. His only surviving work, it seems to have been intended as a geographical handbook for a reader of the Greek poets. The text was originally in Greek hexameters, but no edition in the original language would be published until well into the sixteenth century.' … [Click Below for Full Description]

One of the outstanding works of scientific interest written between the time of Pliny and the sixteenth century.

ARISTOTE & ÆGIDIUS ROMANUS
In-folio (315 x 212 mm) de 134 ff.ch. imprimés sur deux colonnes ; demi-veau fauve sur ais estampé à froid (bordures végétales et croisillons), traces de fermoirs (reliure de l'époque). Troisième édition.Cette élégante impression vénitienne contient les commentaires d'Ægidius Romanus sur les Seconds Analytiques d'Aristote - publiés d'abord à Padoue par Petrus Maufer en 1478 -, ainsi que la traduction latine de ces derniers. Une seconde édition, imprimée comme celle-ci à Venise par Boneto Locatello pour Ottaviano Scoto, a vu le jour en 1488.Le philosophe et théologien augustinien Egidio Romano ou Ægidius Romanus (v. 1243-1316), en français Gilles de Rome, étudia avec Thomas d'Aquin à Paris, où il obtint en 1276 le grade de baccalarius sententiarius. Lors de la condamnation de l'aristotélisme prononcée en 1277 par Étienne Tempier, évêque de Paris, son enseignement fut suspendu et ses écrits censurés. Il quitta Paris et ne revint y enseigner la théologie qu'en 1285, après avoir rétracté une partie de ses thèses.Cet ouvrage, l'un des nombreux commentaires d'Aristote composés par Gilles de Rome, témoigne de l'importance de son rôle dans le développement du raisonnement scientifique, rôle qu'il remplit "in a style distinctive enough to place him in the first rank of those thinkers who have made a positive contribution to the scientific thought of their time" (cf. Maier, Die Vorläufer Galileis, p. 2, cité par DSB). En outre, l'Expositio se situe dans le contexte sensible de la redécouverte d'Aristote au XIIIe siècle, quand les adversaires de la papauté puisaient dans les œuvres du … [Click Below for Full Description]

Konrad SCHWEYNHEIM & Arnold BUCKINCK
1478. Un anno dopo la pubblicazione della Geographia di Bologna, due tipografi itineranti di origine germanica, Schweynheim e Buckinck, stampano a Roma una nuova edizione dell'atlante bolognese. Il libro contiene una carta in più ma le carte conservano l'identità di disegno del Crivelli, risultando meno pittoriche ma più essenziali e cartograficamente più rilevanti. La letteratura individua nel Codice Ebneriano, conservato presso la Public Library di New York, la fonte di questa carta, nella quale sono presenti tutte le caratteristiche del modello tolemaico. Nelle carte sono infatti presenti stessi dettagli orografici ed idrografici riscontrabili nel Codice Ebner, con medesimi errori di posizione e nei toponimi. Della Geographia di Roma furono stampate nuove edizioni nel 1490, 1507 e 1508. Incisione in rame, stampata su due fogli di carta vergata coeva uniti, piccoli interventi di restauro perfettamente eseguiti, nel complesso in ottimo stato di conservazione. Carta a proiezione trapezioidale, di grandissima rarità. Dimensioni 440 - 495x265. A year after the Bolognese edition of the Geographia, two German travelling typographers, Schweynheim e Buckinck, printed in Rome a new editino of this atlas. The book contains one extra map, but all the others have kept the original design created by Crivelli, becoming less pictorial and more essential, especially under a cartogtaphical point of view. Very likely, the Codice Ebneriano, kept nowadays in the Public Library of New York, might have been the source of inspiration for this map, in which can be seen all the main characteristi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Un anno dopo la prima edizione della Geographia, curata da Taddeo Crivelli in Bologna, un nuovo set di mappe fu inciso a Roma per accompagnare il testo dell'opera. Pubblicata da Domizio Caldernius e stampata da Konrad Schweynheym, alla loro morte fu ristampata da Arnold Buckinck nel 1490. Successivamente le lastre furono corrette e ristampate nel 1507 e 1508. Incisione in rame su due lastre unite, proiezione trapezioidale, lievi abrasioni nella piega centrale, nel complesso in buono stato di conservazione. Rarissima. Dimensioni 395 - 475x330. Second printed map of the region, based on Nicholas Germanus manuscript and taken from Claudio Tolomeo's Geographia, Rome 1478/90. A year after the first Geographia edition, edited by Taddeo Crivelli in Bologna, a new set of maps was engraved in Rome to illustrate the text. Published by Domizio Caldernius and printed by Konrad Schweynheym, the map was subsequently reissued by Arnold Buckinck in 1490. Later on, the plates have been corrected and reprinted in 1507 and 1508. Copperplate in two connected plates, trapezoidal projection, light abrasion in centre fold, in general in good condition.

Rome, Arnold Buckinck, successor of Conrad Sweynheym, 10th October 1478Sweynheym worked at Eltville with Gutenberg in 1461-64.The 1478 edition of Ptolemy is an absolute rarity in threefold respect. It is an important work of early book printing, of early printed cartography and of early copper engraving.The story of the genesis of the edition is highly fascinating too. It begins with Conrad Swenheym, who is widely thought to have been present at the birth of printing while an apprentice of Johannes Gutenberg. After Mainz was sacked in 1462, Swenheym fled south to Italy and arrived at the Benedictine monastery of Subiaco. In 1464-5, Swenheyn introduced the first printing press to Italy, in partnership with another German emigre, Arnold Pannartz. From 1467 on both printed in Rome more than 50 titles.The artists who carried out Swenheyms vision have produced the probably most important and artistically virtuous printed maps of the fifteenth-century. Upon the publication of the Rome Ptolemy, a frustrated Crivelli saw potential clients abandon his edition in favour of its superior rival.The maps presented here are doubtlessly among the most impressive and historically most valuable cartographic images of the world.Very rare!

HENRICUS DE SEGUSIO
[Speier: Georgius de Spira (Georg Reyser)?], 1478, [1479]. Third Edition. This is a groundbreaking synthesis of canon and Roman law by one of the greatest legal minds of the Middle Ages. Using the framework of the "Decretals" of Pope Gregory IX, Henricus de Segusio (generally called Hostiensis once he became Cardinal-Bishop of Ostia) sought to set forth in the present work a comprehensive account of all laws concerning ecclesiastical interests; its influence was widespread and persistent, being known and used by virtually all writers on Roman and canon law into the early modern period. Composed ca. 1253 and first printed in Rome in 1473, the book has five parts which deal, as the title suggests, with a very wide-ranging number of topics. Among many other things, the five parts deal (in Liber I) with aspects of administrative law; (in Liber II) with judges, courts, the examination of witnesses, sentences, appeals, etc.; (in Liber III) with the clerical life, ranging from benefices to dress to meals to cohabitation with women; (in Liber IV) with marital issues, including divorce; and (in Liber V) with darker issues like homicide, usury, heresy, sorcery, and other crimes. Assuming original ownership in an ecclesiastical library, it is likely not an accident that our volume contains the first three but not the last two parts, as Liber I-III concerns mainly clerical matters, while IV and V deal largely with issues concerning the laity. Other copies with contents exactly like ours are in Namur (Polain 1868) and Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Munich (BSB INK H84, 6). Attesting to the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ludolphus (Ludolf von Sachsen) de Saxonia):
Ulm, Johann Zainer d. Ä., nicht vor 1478. Type 7. Einspaltiges, 40-zeiliges O-Inkunabelblatt mit einer vierzeiligen und dreizeiligen Holzschnitt-Initiale und einem dreiviertelseitigen Holzschnitt (11,6 x 13,6 cm). Die Kopfbedeckung zweier Soldaten auf dem Holzschnitt sind schwach ankoloriert. Handschriftliche Eintragung der Seitenzahl von alter Hand. Ein Wurmloch. Blattgröße: 18,8 x 25,4 cm. Incunabula text woodcut leaf. - - - Die geistliche Auslegung des Lebens Jesu Christi ist eine freie deutsche Bearbeitung von Ludolf von Sachsens 'Vita Christi'. Ludolf von Sachsen (um 1300-1377/78) war Dominikaner und Magister der Theologie. Er lebte in den Kartausen von Strassburg, Koblenz und Mainz (Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, G-63). Der "Biograph" der Inkunabelholzschnitte Albert Schramm schreibt 1922: Die "Gaistliche ußlegong des lebens Jhesu Cristi", die schon immer wegen eines Teiles seiner Holzschnitte die Aufmerksamkeit der Bücherliebhaber auf sich gezogen hat, ist wegen seiner Seltenheit freilich nur Wenigen zu Gesicht gekommen (Insel-Bücherei, Nr. 350). Die Ausstattung der Bücher mit Holzschnitten wurde zumeist einem Reisser anvertraut. Ausnahmen sind selten. Die Holzschnitte der "geistlichen Auslegung" waren ursprünglich für andere Bücher oder Einzelblätter, die heute nicht mehr nachzuweisen sind, bestimmt gewesen (F. Winkler: Dürer und die Illustrationen zum Narrenschiff 1951). Diese vorliegende mittelalterliche Darstellung orientiert sich, wie alle Inkunabelholzschnitte bis etwa 1490, sehr stark an vorgeprägten Mustern.

Lactantius, Lucius Coelius Firmianus
Venice: Johannes de Colonia and Johannes Manthen, 27 Aug. 1478. Thick folio, 31 x 20.5 cms., 228 leaves, and 13 pp. in contemporary manuscript. Opening text page with a handsome large initial ?M? in gold and colors with extended decoration in the lower margin; initials throughout supplied in alternate red and blue (perhaps by the rubricator WS). Printed in roman and occasionally greek type. Original or absolutely contemporary blind-tooled deerskin over oak boards; light dampstain to the upper inner margin and occasionally the fore-edge, one quire mended at the inner margin and resewn. The original bosses and clasps are gone, with evidence of their presence, 19th-century shelf label on backstrip. A quite remarkable copy, extensively annotated throughout the text at the time, with the addition of the four Hussite tracts by another hand, and very early provenance notes including what is probably the rubricator?s signature monogram WSp (i.e. pinxit?) at the front; 19th-century ink inscription (probably German) and pencil notes dated 1864 perhaps from a sale. A fascinating copy of an important text. The text is reprinted from the 1472 de Spira edition and was first printed in 1465 by Sweynheym and Pannartz in Subiaco. Lactantius, often called the Christian Cicero, wrote declamatory works designed to make Christianity accessible to pagans. He was one of the earliest if not the first North Africans to appear in print. A crisp and well-margined copy, collating exactly as and substantially bigger than the Abrams copy (complete, with the first text leaf illuminated, £11,000).

(EARLY PRINTING). [Mentel, Jacques]
Ex Officina Roberti Ballard. First edition.. Vellum a little soiled and worn; some light smudges, stains and damp-stains in the text; very good copy.. Bigmore & Wyman, Bibliography of Printing, vol. 2, page 37. 4to, contemporary vellum. Woodcut title-page vignette, two head pieces, two tail pieces, one initial letter and one full engraving in the text. A specious scholarly treatise on the first printer at Strasbourg, Johann Mentelin (died 1478), apparently written by a descendant, who uses fabricated documents to support claims that Mentelin, and not Gutenberg, was the inventor of printing (claims that Bigmore & Wyman remark are a ?shameful falsification of history?). Mentelin was an important German printer (but not the first) who flourished between 1458-78. The dedication to antiquarian and scholar Bernardus A. Malinkrot, who died in 1644, is probably also a ruse to grant legitimacy to the text. Duplicate tag and early ink shelf mark of an unidentified library on the front free endpaper.

Sein Hauptwerk ist die 'Religionslehre' (Divinae institutiones), die erste Gesamtdarstellung des christlichen Glaubens in lateinischer Sprache. Die Schrift 'Über Gottes Kunstwerk' (De opificio dei) legt Schönheit und Zweckmäßigkeit des menschlichen Organismus dar, ohne christliche Anklänge; 'Über den Zorn Gottes' (De ira dei) behandelt das schon von der Stoa und von Epikur behandelte Problem, ob der Gottheit Affekte zugeschrieben werden können.

CHAULIAC, Guy de (Guido de CAULIACO).
Krivatsy 5151; STCN (2 copies); WorldCat (1 copy); Norman, One hundred books 8 (1478 French & 1480 Italian eds.). Rare second edition of Nieustadt's revision of the best Dutch translation of "one of the landmarks in the history of surgery" (Norman). Guy de Chauliac (ca. 1298-ca. 1368) was arguably the most important surgeon of the Middle Ages. His Latin Chirurgia was completed in 1363 and first printed (in French translation) in 1478. Divided into seven sections, it covers a wide range of subjects, from anatomy, pathology and drugs to wounds, fractures, cancer and even dentistry. It represents the most complete compilation of surgical knowledge up to the middle of the 17th century, with references to over 100 authors, including classical Arabic and Greek physicians such as Ibn Sina (Avicenna), al-Razi (Rhazes), al-Majusi (Haly Abbas), Hippocrates and Galen.Owner's inscription on flyleaf by the Dutch painter and physician Hendrik Wiegersma (1891-1969): "H. Wiegersma ... / Deurne 1917 / medicus". Slightly browned, with occasional tiny and mostly marginal worm holes, title-page slightly soiled, frayed at the edges and no longer conjugate (but securely attached to the flyleaf). Otherwise in good condition, with only an occasional smudge. The binding is soiled and the boards bowed. Rare Dutch edition of an extremely influential surgical text.
