Aristoteles: = Petrus de Abano
1501. Problemata Alexandri Aphrodisei. Problemata Plutarchi, cum gratia. - Venetiis, Per Bonetum Locatellum, 1501, Folio (304 x 210 mm), (22), 296 fl. double colum, gothic letters, woodcut initials, printer device, fine full leather binding. A broad marginated, clean and well preserved copy of this beautifully volume, printed on strong paper. The greatest scientific name after Hippocrates is that of Aristotle (384-322 B.C.), who gave the medicine the beginnings of botany, zoology, comparative anatomy, embryology, teratology and physiology, and use of formal logic as an instrument of precision. Aristotle, a pupil of Plato, and at one time tutor to Alexander the Great, had a profound influence in determining the direction of medical and biological thought; perhaps no other man has so dominated and advanced science as a whole.The Aristotelian Problemata enjoyed considerable popularity in the Middle Ages, especially its book IV, dealing with sexual intercourse and generation, which adapted in such manner that it became a kind of pornographic publication. Petrus de Abano (1250-1315?) was one of the most illustrious and influential men of his time and probably the most influential medical writer of the later middle age. A native of Apano near Padua (from which he takes his name), he took his degree in Paris and his cures were so remarkable that he was able to obtain the highest fees of any physicians of his time. He was called the Consiliator because of his remarkable book published during his residence in the Paris University. He was consulted by such man as Pope Honorius IV and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Aulus Persius Flaccus
(Venedig, Pentius ), 1501. 4°. 102 Bl. Pergament des 18. Jahrhunderts (Gebräunt und fleckig, teils bestossen). Goff, P-352. - Sehr seltene und reich kommentierte Ausgabe dieser Postinkunabel. - Aulus Persius Flaccus (* 4. Dezember 34 n. Chr. in Volterra; † 24. November 62 n. Chr.), römischer Dichter (etruskischer, ritterlicher Abstammung) propagierte in seinen Dichtungen die stoische Lebensweisheit und kritisierte zeitgenössische Missstände. Seine Werke wurden nach seinem Tod vom Philosophen Lucius Annaeus Cornutus herausgegeben und waren bis ins Mittelalter populär. (Wikipedia). Seine Dichtung wurde auch später noch rezipiert, allerdings im Laufe der Zeit immer weniger verstanden. Persius, bei seinen Zeitgenossen beliebt und geschätzt, später noch von Quintilian und Martial bewundert, galt mit dem größer werdenden zeitlichen, sprachlichen und kulturellen Abstand zunehmend als dunkel, unverständlich, obskur oder gar kafkaesk. Sein Werk schien vom „neronischen Zeitstil“ und der Autor von einer mystifizierenden, esoterischen Weltsicht geprägt. (vgl. dazu Kißel). - Persius schrieb u.a. sechs Satiren im Hexameter, die hier vorliegen. Eine Praetexta (Tragödie mit nationalrömischem Inhalt) und Gedichte auf Arria, die Schwiegermutter des Thrasea (eines befreundeten Politikers), gingen verloren. Das unvollendete Satirenbuch wurde von Cornutus bearbeitet; dieser kürzte den Schluss der 6. Satire und entschärfte anstößige politische Anspielungen. Außerdem sind 14 Choliamben (Verse im Hinkjambus) teils am Ende, teils am Anfang der Satiren überliefert.(Wikipedia). - Einen neuen Zugang m … [Click Below for Full Description]

VALLA, Giorgio.
[Colophon:] Venice: Aldus Manutius for Giovanni Pietro Valla, December 1501. [Colophon:] Venice:: Aldus Manutius for Giovanni Pietro Valla, December 1501. First and only edition of the first great humanistic Renaissance encyclopaedia, an extraordinarily rich collection of translations from classical authors, and “une des plus belles productions des presses Aldines” (Graesse). It contains the first printings of any of the works of Archimedes, Apollonius, Autolycus, Eutocius, and Hero of Alexandria, Valla's own commentaries on Euclid (the first to be printed based on the Greek text), and the first printing of Ptolemy's star catalogue (the <i>Almagest</i> was not printed until 1515). “For the next forty years at least, <i>De Rebus Expetendis</i> remained almost the only printed source of reference for the works of Apollonius, Archimedes, the Eutocius commentaries, and Hero. It was used extensively by Leonardo [da Vinci] and Copernicus” (Rose 1975, p. 48). Leonardo owned a copy of <i>De Expetendis</i>, translated sections from it into Italian, and used it in his work on geometric proportions. <i>De Expetendis</i> is now recognized “as one of the most important direct sources of Leonardo's mathematical knowledge” (Kelley & Popkin, p. 45, n. 55). Copernicus, who studied the book in Padua, learned from it of the heliocentric ideas of Aristarchus; he also “made heavy use of the mathematical excerpts translated by Valla from such Greek authors as Archimedes, Autolycus and Ptolemy. Moreover, Copernicus used a star-catalogue printed by Valla which differs significantly from that of P … [Click Below for Full Description]

FUCHS, Leonhart.
Parkinson 915; USTC (7 copies); cf. Hagelin, Old and rare books on materia medica, p. 70; Marland, The task of healing, p. 59; not in Durling. Rare edition, the first to be published in Basel, of a work on the proper compounding of medicines by the famous German physician and botanist Leonhart Fuchs (1501-1566). "In 1531 he published his Compendiaria, a work intended to help students to appreciate the works of Hippocrates and Galen properly. Revised and greatly enlarged, this work went through some ten editions under the new titles of first Methodus, and later on Institutiones Medicinae..." (Hagelin). The book opens with a dedicatory letter, followed by an index of ailments and diseases in both Latin and Greek. The main text is divided into two parts, the first describing the ailments and referring to and explaining texts by Galen, Hippocrates, Plinius and others, while the second part describes the ingredients and recipes for medicines.With frequent marginal annotations. Browned, with some marginal water stains, but overall in good condition. Binding rubbed, damaged and with a crack in one hinge.

Large woodcut of the preaching scholar on title, also known as the “Accipies woodcut,” although this version omits the legend. Publisher Heinrich Quentell was the first to use the “Accipies” woodcut in 1490 and it was in use until 1496 and then picked up again in 1500, as here. Quentell’s woodcut was popular with scholastic printers and was extensively imitated and in some cases directly reproduced. Generally, all books with the “Accipies” woodcut would have been intended for interactive classroom use. Modern alum-tawed leather, endpape … [Click Below for Full Description]

VIGERIUS, Marcus.
Oldenbourg (Schäufelein) I, 129; Proctor, German Books 1501-1520 11684; VD 16, V1183; cf. Thieme & Becker XXIX, p. 558. The two major texts by Marcus Vigerius de Savona (or Emmanuele Vigerio; 1446-1516) in their second editions. The Decachordum Christianum was first published by Girolamo Soncino in Fano in 1507. It is a devotional work, dealing with the Holy Family and Christ's incarnation, from the Annunciation to the Ascension. This second edition was printed in Hagenau in the Alsace, for the most famous publisher of Nuremberg, Anton Koberger. Each of the ten sections is preceded by a splendid woodcut by the "Master I S with the shovel", an artist of the school of Hans Schäufelein (ca. 1480-ca.1539) in Nuremberg and Nördlingen, who was himself a pupil of Dürer. The Master probably also worked in Alsace and his work is often confused with Schäufelein's. His style, however, is somewhat different and shows also the influence of Dürer and Baldung.With (partly erased) contemporary owner's entries on the first fly-leaf and title and many contemporary scholarly annotations in text, spine skilfully restored, some spotting on a few leaves. Very good copy in a magnificent contemporary blind-tooled binding, probably from Nuremberg.

Pomponius Mela.
[Venice], Giovanni Battista Sessa, 27. X. 1501. 4to. 32 pp. With printer's woodcut device on the title page and different device under the colophon; several woodcut initials. Followed by a 49-page manuscript index (beginning with instructions to the "amice lector" on the verso of the colophon) on 28 blank leaves bound after the printed text. 19th century boards with red morocco spine lettered and decorated in gilt. The first edition of the 16th century: a very rare reprint of the incunable published in 1494, the first separate edition to be based on the criticism of the Renaissance scholar Ermolao Barbaro. Dedicated to Pope Alexander VI. Mela's description of the ancient world, based on good sources and written during the reign of Emperor Claudius, is the oldest Roman geography to have survived. This edition was not equipped with an index, but a contemporary humanistic owner rectified the fault by crafting his own: the humanistic "cancelaresca" manuscript provides a list of all cities, places and even subjects mentioned, a total of some 1,000 references to 227 paragraph numbers (which the owner, too, provided in brown ink throughout the inner margins of the book). - Occasional slight foxing and waterstaining to margins near end, but a fine copy of this rare book. Edit 16, CNCE 58712. Schweiger II.2, 606. Ebert 13608. Graesse V, 401: "Reimpr. rare de l'edition . de 1494". Not in Adams, BM-STC Italian, or Riccardi. Not in Brunet or Dibdin.

Brady, John.
London: Pr. for the author & sold by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, & Brown, et al., 1812–13. 8vo (21.6 cm, 8.5"). 2 vols. I: xxxvi, 387, [1] pp.; 1 plt. II: [2], 395, [1] pp. Second edition of this popular survey of the history of time and calendars from the ancient world onwards, following the first edition of 1812. Brady here describes the rituals and lore associated with the regulation of time, in all its divisions and subdivisions; much material from the lives of the saints is present. Allibone quotes the London Quarterly Review's assertion that "Especially to students in divinity and law, [the work] will be an invaluable acquisition; and we hesitate not to declare that, in proportion as its merits become known to the public, it will find its way to the libraries of every gentleman and scholar in the kingdom." Contemporary opinion seems to have borne that prediction out, as the subscribers list here (carried over from the first edition) is substantial and the work went through several editions in the first few years after its initial publication.    Vol. I is illustrated with one wood-engraved plate depicting a Saxon almanac, and seven in-text engravings depicting Odin, Frigga, Thor, and the other deities with days named in their honor.    Provenance: Signature on title-pages of George Buckton, vol. I dated 1812 and vol. II dated 1813.         Allibone 237 (listing 1813 & 1814 eds. only); NSTC B4120.

Isabella I, Queen of Spain
1501. Single quarto manuscript document signed by Queen Isabella of Spain, dated 20 November, 1501. With "La Reyna" at the top, and signed "Yo la Reyna." The letter is for a credit to Isabella's chamberlain, Sancho de Paredes for various supplies, services, and expenditures. Matted and framed opposite a portrait of Isabella. The entire piece measures 19 inches by 20.5 inches. Rare and desirable signed by Queen Isabella. Isabella I was Queen of Castile. She was married to Ferdinand II of Aragon. Their marriage became the basis for the political unification of Spain under their grandson, Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After a struggle to claim her right to the throne, she reorganized the governmental system, brought the crime rate to the lowest it had been in years, and unburdened the kingdom of the enormous debt her brother had left behind. Her reforms and those she made with her husband had an influence that extended well beyond the borders of their united kingdoms. Isabella and Ferdinand are known for completing the Reconquista, and for supporting and financing Christopher Columbus' 1492 voyage that led to the opening of the New World and to the establishment of Spain as the first global power which dominated Europe and much of the world for more than a century. Isabella was granted the title Servant of God by the Catholic Church in 1974. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

SACROBOSCO, Johannes de (John of HOLYWOOD).
Alden & Landis 505/8; BMC STC German, p. 772; JCB I, pp. 40-41; Proctor, German Books 1501-1520, 10386; VD16, J-712 (4 copies); cf. Adams H-714 (1501 Quentell edition); DSB XII, pp. 60-63. Fourth Quentell edition, extensively illustrated, of Sacrobosco's classic 13th-century treatise on astronomy De sphaera mundi ("On the sphere of the world"), with extensive commentary by the Czech astronomer Wenceslaus Fabri de Budweis (1455-1518). Two of the diagrams clearly explain a solar and a lunar eclipse. The present copy is extensively annotated by a (near) contemporary hand, adding even some further illustrations, including an astronomical diagram. The book is divided into four chapters treating the definition of a sphere; the various circles and their names; the cosmic, chronic, and heliacal risings and settings of the constellations; and the movements of the sun, moon and planets."Sacrobosco's fame rests firmly on his De sphaeria, a small work based on Ptolemy and his Arabic commentators, published about 1220 [...] It was quite generally adopted as the fundamental astronomy text, for often it was so clear that it needed little or no explanation." (DSB). Sacrobosco was the first European scholar to use Arabic sources for his astronomical studies, helping to spread Arabic knowledge to the Western world. He describes the earth as a sphere, opening the way for the Renaissance astronomical revolution of Copernicus and Gallileo. The work had a great impact on the science of astronomy in the following centuries. Alden & Landis cites the present edition as, "The earliest edn to refer t … [Click Below for Full Description]
