      Nuremberg: Jobst Gutknecht, 1515.. [10] leaves. Small quarto. Dbd., leather tab on foredge of first leaf. Moderate soiling and dampstaining. Short clean tears at inner margin of last leaf (affecting printed area, but no loss). A very good copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. An extremely rare German translation of Giovanni Rota's LA VITA DEL SOPHIA RE DE PERSIA, following an Italian edition of 1508. The text consists of reports concerning the Persian and Turkish empires sent by Rota, a doctor who had resided in Aleppo, to Leonardo Loredan, the Doge of Venice from 1501-21. Also included are brief reports from other regions of the Near East. First published in Rome in 1508, another Italian edition was printed in Venice circa 1515, and a French translation appeared in Jean Lemaire de Belge's LE TRAICTIE INTITULE DE LA DIFFERE[N]CE DES SCISMES ET DES CONCILLES DE LEGLISE, printed in Lyon in 1511. It has been suggested that Rota's writings were published in part to create interest in Christian Europe in a new Crusade. These reports, particularly the present German translation printed in newsletter format, can also be seen as responding to a market strongly interested in reports from the Near East and Asia. Extremely rare. Not in OCLC, CATALOG OF THE JAMES FORD BELL LIBRARY, or British Library's STC GERMAN 1455-1600. VD16 records copies in Munich, Berlin, and Budapest. VD16 R3194. (Budapest National Library copy).

        I: De re anatomica libri XV; II: De ponderiubs sive de iusta quantitate & proportione medicamentorum liber; III: Medicinalium observationum libri tres

      Three valuable books bound together in contemporary vellum, with original tabs. I: Originally published in folio three years earlier, this second edition in its smaller format was especially significant due to the fact that "it attests to the widespread contemporary use and recognized importance of Colombo's work." It is here that Colombo defines his discovery of the pulmonary or lesser circulation, i.e., the passage of blood from the right cardiac ventricle to the left via the lungs. He describes the duplicatures of the peritoneum, the ventricles of the larynx, and the mode of action of the pulmonary, cardiac, and aortic valves, clearing up a number of errors of his predecessors. Colombo (ca.1515-59), a friend of Michelangelo, was a pupil of Vesalius and later became his successor in the chair of anatomy at Padua. He bears the responsibility of having been the first person to perform vivisection on dogs instead of hogs, for the reason that the latter were "annoying by their squealing." & II: First edition and extremely rare; OCLC notes only the NLM copy of this original edition.This valuable treatise on diseases and their cure is described by Mettler (p. 630) as the first to furnish us with a fact. "A fact! something precious for that period, despite the brevity of his descriptions. Rondelet was a well known physician at Montpelliere, and teacher of Coiter, Bauhin, Gesner, and Aldrovandi. An avid zoologist, he is probably best known for his De Piscibus Marinis. & III: First edition. This valuable contributions to the practice of medicine and therapeutics by Lomnius (ca. 1500-64) was in great demand up into the eighteenth century. His approach to medicine was extremely rational for the time, and his writing style was very readable. "In the first book Lomnius discusses diseases that afflict the entire body, and in the second he concentrates on maladies that afflict only specific parts of the body. In the third book and final book, he discusses general concepts of disease as well as diagnosis and prognosis." Lomnius was city-physician at Tournay and Brussels, and thought to be physician to King Philip II of Spain.

        ... De duplici copia, verborum ac rerum commentarij duo. Item Epistola ... ad Iacobum Vuymphelingium Selestatinum. Item ... Parabolae, siue similia, e Physicis, pleraque ex Aristotele, & Plinio. [BOUND WITH] Collectanea Adagiorum veterum ... [1515]

      Matthias Schurer Strasbourg: Matthias Schürer, 1514-1515. Hard Cover. Quarto (21 cm), two volumes bound as one. I: [6], LXXII, [62] leaves; II: [4], LVII, [7] leaves. Numerous five- and six-line woodcut initials on black ground decorated with arabesques and figures, many of them carefully rubricated. Second title page with woodcut architectural border, lightly rubricated. Printer's "usui studiosorum" device on last printed page, rubricated. Bound in contemporary or 17th-century blind-stamped alum tawed pigskin over wooden boards, with a Cardinal's arms gilt on both boards. Clasps and catches preserved. Some small worming at spine ends. First title leaf somewhat toned and soiled. Occasional marginalia in contemporary or early hand. Contemporary ownership inscription on title page. References: VD 16 E-2645 and E-3237; Adams E-318 and E-716, etc. In 1509, the year Mattias Schürer completed his apprenticeship as a printer and opened his own press, he published an unauthorized edition of Erasmus's Adagia, purloined from the first edition of 1500. In spite of this indiscretion, he enjoyed a warm and supportive friendship with the author. In the preface to this edition of De Copia, Erasmus commends Schürer for elevating the service to the scholarly community above the profit motive by publishing so many Greek and Latin classics (then as now a less-than-lucrative enterprise). He gave Parabolae to Schürer in its first edition, 1513. The edition of De Copia offered here is the first to include Erasmus's "ave et vale" letter to Jakob Wimpfeling, who was about to leave Strasbourg in 1514. Schürer's edition of Adagia of 1515, while it does not include the expanded text of 1508, is the first to contain the printer's own "table of proverbs" to function as a key to the collection.

He was a dominician, a trained theologian who taught, preached and published mainly in Genoa and in Viterbo. He made up a number of ancient historical texts and inscriptions, and wrote commentaries on them. He was the greatest forger of the 16th century. Graesse I, 137.Orosius (ca. 390-ca. 431), was a friend of St. Jerome and a disciple of St. Augustine, at whose suggestion he wrote this work. This world chronicle, the first universal history still extant to be written by a native of the Iberian Peninsula, aims to demonstrate that calamities such as famine, earthquakes and pestilence were caused not by the wrath of the neglected pagan gods, and in fact that such events had become less severe since the spread of Christinanity
