        [Liber physiognomiae]. Phisionomia Magistri Michaelius Scoti.

      [Paris], Regnault Chaudiere, [um 1515].. (48) Bll. Gotische Type. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt und Druckermarke Chaudieres. Halbpergamentband. 8vo.. Seltene französische Postinkunabelausgabe von Michael Scotus' "Liber physiognomiae", wohl ein Nachdruck von Jean Petits um 1510 erschienener Ausgabe. Die mittelalterliche Schrift zu Aussehen und Wesenserkundung des Menschen, eng verwandt mit der Albertus zugeschriebenen Abhandlung "De Secretis Mulierum" (welche daraus schöpft), bildet den letzten Teil von Michaels wissenschaftlichem Hauptwerk, dem "Liber Introductorius". Das Gesamtwerk ist Kaiser Friedrich II. gewidmet, als dessen Hofastrologe Michael fungierte, der vorliegende Abschnitt sogar auf dessen Veranlassung hin verfasst. Die ersten beiden Abschnitte gelten als unsystematisch und zum Teil unvollendet; "so ist es auch nicht überraschend, dass der 'Liber physiognomiae' als einzelnes Buch angesehen wurde und sogar bis um 1500 in nicht weniger als 20 Ausgaben erschien. In den ersten beiden Teilen behandelt er die Themen Astronomie, Astrologie, Meteorologie, Medizin, Musik und Komputistik [...] Im 'Liber physiognomiae' geht er dann auf Fragen über den Geschlechtsverkehr, die Schwangerschaft, die Embryologie und die Physiognomie ein" (Wikipedia). "Based partly on portions of Aristotle's works on animals, partly on the Secreta Secretorum, and partly on works by Rhazes. It became very popular" (Ferguson). - Der aus Schottland stammende Michael Scotus (gest. um 1235) wirkte in Toledo und übersetzte aus dem Arabischen verschiedene Aristoteles-Kommentare des Averroes sowie den "Kitab fi l-hai'a", ein astronomisches Werk des Nur ad-Din al-Bitrudschi (Alpetragius). Am Hofe des Kaisers übersetzte er auf dessen Wunsch Avicennas "Abbrevatio de animalibus", welches dann Friedrich II. für sein berühmtes Falkenbuch "De arte venandi cum avibus" verwendete. - Durchgehend schwach wasserrandig und mit zeitgenöss. Anstreichungen; mehrere, zum Teil umfangreiche Marginalien und Schlußnotizen von zeitgenöss. Hand. Außerordentlich selten; über Bibliothekskataloge kein Exemplar dieser Ausgabe nachweisbar. - Vgl. Panzer VIII, 212, 2745. Caillet 10068. Ferguson II, 357.

        Boetius de consolatione philosophica & de disciplina Scholarium... Additum est Carmen iuvenile Sulpitti.

      Lyon Iohnnes Clein 1515. [c.1515]. 4to. pp. [280]. p.[280 blank]. Colophon dated "nono kale[n]das Octobris" (23 Sept.). Title page printed in red and black inside woodcut architectural border. Woodcut printer's device (Sylvestre 132). Printed in Roman font with the surrounding commentaries printed in Gothic. Text contains decorative initials. Bound in contemporary blind stamped paneled calf boards; re-backed preserving original spine. Later antique endpapers with inscription on front-free endpaper dated "1925"; front and rear blank fly-leaves worn. Pages are generally clean with occasional marginalia in an old hand (i.e. several small inscriptions written on the title page); minor spotting; lower corner of leaf c7 clipped in margin;. The hinges and inner margins to the first gathering are neatly strengthened / repaired. The outer edges to this same gathering show some wear - i.e. a few marginal tears (sealed), and light soiling. The bottom margins on conjugate leaves a2 and a7 are trimmed about ½" (12 mm). Anicius Manlius Boethius (480-524) was a late Roman philosopher and statesman. He became embroiled in a plot against Theodoric, the Ostrogothic ruler of Rome, and was eventually executed. Boethius wrote his most famous work, the "Consolation of Philosophy," while awaiting his fate in prison. The five sections discuss the capriciousness of fortune, the influence of good and evil, and the nature of God's control over the universe (i.e. free will, providence and fate). The work employs the Platonic notion of an ascent of the soul to the Godhead through a process of contemplation and reflection. The imagery is predominately pagan; however, the author himself was strongly influenced by Christian thought. Boethius's work was immensely influential throughout the middle ages. Commentaries are provided by Josse Badius (1462-1535) and Thomas Wallensis (the latter wrongly ascribed to Thomas Aquinas). The "Ascensio explanato" has separate signatures and divisional title page. [Adams B-2290; BM STC French, p. 73; Renouard, Josse Badius II, 213; Baudrier XII, p. 268]. Hardcover.

        M. Annei Lucani Civilis Belli [The Pharsalia / The Civil War]

      In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri, 1515. In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri. Hardcover. B00I2OPPRE In Latin. 1515 In Aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Soceri (Venice, Italy) 3 5/8 x 5 7/8 inches tall full vellum bound with leather and gilt label to spine, 140 leaves. In verse. Dedicatory letter on verso of title leaf written by Aldus Pius Manutius, founder (in 1494) of the famed Aldine Press. Aldine device on verso of last leaf. The second Aldine edition of this work, a re-impression of the 1502 edition. The Pharsalia (also known as Bellum Civile, "The Civil War") is a Roman epic poem by the poet Lucan, telling of the civil war between Julius Caesar and the forces of the Roman Senate led by Pompey the Great. The poem's title is a reference to the Battle of Pharsalus, which occurred in 48 BC, near Pharsalus, Thessaly, in northern Greece. Caesar decisively defeated Pompey in this battle, which occupies all of the epic's seventh book. Though probably incomplete, the poem is considered on of the great epic poems of the Silver Age of Latin literature. The poem was begun around 61 AD and several books were in circulation before the Emperor Nero and Lucan had a bitter falling out. Lucan continued to work on the epic - despite Nero's prohibition against any publication of Lucan's poetry - and it was left unfinished when Lucan was compelled to suicide as part of the Pisonian conspiracy in 65 AD. A total of ten books were written and all survive; the tenth book breaks off abruptly with Caesar in Egypt. . Good. 1515.

        [Greek:] Olympia. Pythia. Nemea. Isthmia

      Woodcut printer's & publisher's devices on title, printer's device repeated on verso of final leaf. Printing in red on two leaves (b1 & A3) & printed throughout in Greek. [238] leaves (lacking the two blanks). Small 4to, early 19th-cent. red morocco, sides decorated in gilt with the arms of Marie Christine de Bourbon in gilt in center of upper cover, flat spine richly gilt, a.e.g. Rome: Zacharias Callierges, 1515. The celebrated and finely printed second edition of Pindar and the first to include the scholia. The text of this edition follows a manuscript tradition superior to the Aldine editio princeps of 1513. "So important was this edition, that it would stand for three centuries as the vulgate version of both the text and scholia."-Geanakoplos, Greek Scholars in Venice, p. 214. The Cretan calligrapher and printer Zacharias Callierges (fl. 1499-1523), was the most eminent of the Greek printers of the 15th century. He established a press in Rome in 1515 specifically for the printing of Greek texts and this famous edition of Pindar was the first production of his Roman press. It is the first book entirely printed in Greek in Rome. The Greek font is based on Callierges' Venice font, introduced in the 1499 Etymologicum Magnum. Several variants (no known priority) of this edition are known: in the present copy A1-2 (Pythia) have no signatures and A3 contains red printing. A fine crisp copy from the library of Marie Christine de Bourbon (1806-78), Queen consort of Spain and, later, Regent of Spain, with her bookplate and arms on the upper cover. Due to the political turmoil of Spain and her unfortunate second marriage to a low-ranking soldier, she spent much of her later life in exile in France. Minor browning and foxing and a very small wormhole to blank portion of first leaf. Some early underlinings and annotations. ❧ Proctor, Printing of Greek, pp. 117-25. .

        Hoc Volumine Continentur... [Opera, edited by Nicolaus Angelius]

      Florence,: Juntae,, 1515.. Octavo, ff. [xii], 280, italic letter, woodcut printer's device on last leaf, with six woodcuts; contemporary vellum, a bit stained, but a good copy. This was the first popular pocket edition of Macrobius's influential text, printed by the Giunta family in Florence; such smaller format publications were a feature of publishing in the early sixteenth century and must have looked as startlingly modern then as Allen Lane's first Penguins looked in the 1930s or ¥40s.This printing includes a slightly developed form of the famous Macrobian world map with its massive southern continent (see previous item).Adams, M59; Shirley, 13n.

        Opusculum de mirabilibus novae & veteris urbis Romae. - (Colophon:)

      Roma, Mazzocchi, 1515.In-4. Legatura del tardo ?700 in mezza pelle, tassello sul dorso. Titolo entro bordura architettonica con un volto maschile nel timpano. 103, (1 bianco) ff.; frontespizio lievemente ingiallito e con alcuni antichi nomi a penna cancellati, qualche macchiolina ed alcune antiche sottolineature a penna; buon esemplare. Questa rarissima seconda edizione della prima guida scientifica di Roma, è identica all?originale del 1510, salvo piccoli cambiamenti al titolo ed al colophon. L?apprezzata opera dell?antiquario e storico d?arte fiorentino Albertini, è divisa in due parti. La prima tratta la Roma antica in cui vengono, tra l?altro, confutati errori e leggende sorti nel Medioevo su alcuni storici monumenti; la seconda tratta la Roma moderna, con informazioni su palazzi, chiese ed artisti che vi hanno lavorato; di notevole interesse è la descrizione della Cappella Sistina che contiene i più antichi riferimenti mai apparsi in stampa su Michelangelo. In fine c?è il ?De laudibus civitatum Florentiae et Saonis? con un elenco di fiorentini illustri ed un riferimento ad Amerigo Vespucci ed alle sue scoperte. Schudt 431. Rossetti G-218. Choix 16310. Ascarelli, Mazzocchi, 94. Harrisse I, 64 & 79. Steinmann Wittkower 16. "Titelauflage" of the first edition of 1510. «The work of the deserving bibliophile and erudite, one of the first to gather and illustrate systematically the monuments and inscriptions of ancient Rome, attracted wide popular attraction? Though Albertini was a popularizer of history and archaeology at a time when that discipline was in its earliest infancy, he laid the basis for the refutation of the errors and improbable legends tied to the Roman monuments by the Middle Ages?» (Builders and Humanists, Huston, Texas, 1966, pp. 243-244). The volume also contains the first mention of Michelangelo and a reference to Vespucci. Title within a woodcut border. Old names cancelled on title, some occasional pale soiling and staining and a few old pen underlinings; a good copy bound in 18th century half calf.

Piuttosto frequenti, specie nella prima metà del vol., "maniculae", scritte, non solo al marg., e sottolineature di mano antica in inchiostro bruno - ma anche, in tre casi, in rosso -; cop. antica, un po' scurita, professionalmente restaurata rimontandola su supporto in tela, che traspare dalle mancanze; leg. solida, tagli un po' irregolari - per la felice astensione da una nuova rifilatura dopo il restauro - e poco puliti, convesso quello lat.; margini più che discreti. Es. un po' vissuto ma apprezzabile, completo ed orig., in veste antica.

      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.

        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
