Paris, Henrici Stephani (Henri Estienne), (1516). Folio. (30x21 cm.). Bound in a fine recent full vellum. 262 leaves (last leaf I 11, blank). 8 leaves misnumbered.

The first 6 books extensively annotated in the margins in a contemporary hand (in Latin), comments and references, and sometimes proposing other ways of representing the problem, sometimes calculations added.

It was edited by the famous founder of the French humanistic School, Jacques Lefévre (Jakob Faber Stagulensis), who, in this edition, solved many of the editorial problems of the previously printed editions. This beautifully printed edition, with the diagrams presented in the margins of the text, became the standard for many following editions.The work also comprises the proofs of Theon of Alexandria.

Leo X., Papst. [Concilium Lateranense V].
[Rom, Giacomo Mazzocchi], (1516).. 12 unnum. SS. (A6). Mit Holzschnittvignette (Papstwappen Leo X.) und vierteiliger ornamentaler Holzschnittbordüre am Titel. Geheftet. 4to.. Bulle "Pastor aeternus" von Papst Leo X., welche (im Rahmen der 5. Lateransynode) die 1438 vom französischen König Karl VII. unterzeichnete Pragmatische Sanktion von Bourges verwarf. Diese hatte die pontifikale Macht in Frankreich begrenzt und auf eine französische Nationalkirche abgezielt. Trotz der 1461 erfolgten schriftlichen Versicherung König Ludwigs XI. gegenüber Papst Pius II., er habe die Pragmatische Sanktion "im ganzen Reich und in der Dauphine" abrogiert, blieb sie dem Geiste nach in Kraft; 1463 und 1464 erließ er "eine Reihe von Ordonanzen 'zur Abwehr der röm. Übergriffe u. Herstellung der alten gallikan. Freiheiten'. 1567 hob er sie abermals auf, fuhr aber fort, ganz im Sinne der Pragmatischen Sanktion zu handeln" (LThK VIII, 425). Nachdem die Bischofsversammlung zu Rom 1510 auf Wunsch Ludwigs XII. erklärte, man habe sich an die Pragmatische Sanktion zu halten, verwarf das 5. Laterankonzil dieselbe: am 18. August 1516 wurde sie von Franz I. durch das Konkordat von Bologna ersetzt. Die einige Monate später in der 11. Sitzung der Synode erlassene Bulle besiegelte die Abrogation. Datiert "Millesimo quingentesimo sextodecimo Quartodecimo Kal. Ianuar.", also am 19. Dez. 1516, und wohl noch im selben Jahr gedruckt. - Winziger Wasserrand; Titel mit kl. Papierdurchbruch in der Holzschnittbordüre (etwas Buchstabenberührung verso). Die Wappenvignette von zeitgenöss. Hand mit roter Tinte eingerahmt. … [Click Below for Full Description]

This is the first book printed in Almeirim, probably produced at a time when the Court was in residence there. Only two sixteenth-century books were printed in Almeirim. The Order of Aviz was the first of the military orders founded by the kings of Portugal, possibly established as early as 1162. It played a vital part in the foundation of the Portuguese nation and in the struggle against the Moors. While the Orders of Christ and S. Thiago also fought for the independence of Portugal at the end of the fourteenth and beginning of the fifteenth centuries, the Order … [Click Below for Full Description]
