REUCHLIN, Johannes
Hagenau Thomas Anselm 1517. Small folio [29.5 x 18.5 cm], (4), 79 (1) ff., including author’s woodcut arms on title as well as numerous passages of Hebrew and Greek, with several woodcut Cabbalistic figures (LXXXVIII v) A4,B6-N6,O8. Bound in 17th-century stiff vellum, calf title label gilt. Ownership inscription of D. Wyttenbach 1786 on front endleaf. Later purchase inscription from Payne & Foss 1824 10/. Discrete former library stamp on verso of final leaf; early marginalia cropped at time of rebinding. Apart from even toning, fresh, unsophisticated copy, excellent. Scarce first edition and fine copy of Reuchlin’s cabalistic studies, ‘la Bible de la Kabbale Chrétienne’ (Secret, Les Kabbales Chrétiennes de la Renaissance, p. 57). "Inspired by the work of Pico della Mirandola, Reuchlin became one of the founders of Christian Kabbalah with the publication of De verbo mirifico (1494) and, more important, De arte cabalistica (1517). The latter work, which is dedicated to Leo X, is a Socratic-style dialogue set in Frankfurt. The interlocutors are Philolaus (a Pythagorean), Marranus (a Muslim), and Simon (a Jew). Simon, an exile of the 1492 Spanish expulsion, teaches the others at great length about the Kabbalah, with particular emphasis on numerology (and its particular compatibility with Pythagorean numerology) and the mysteries of the hidden meaning of Hebrew characters. Reuchlin, however, applies the mysteries to Christianity and, in fact, appropriates the Kabbalah as a source of Christian revelation. At a high point in the work, Philolaus concludes that "all our studies in b … [Click Below for Full Description]

HORTUS SANITATIS.
1517. [Strassburg, Reinhard Beck], 1517. Folio (303 x 202 mm), ff [356], with figurative woodcut title border with putti and monkeys climbing a grape arbour with blank shield below, title printed in red and black, title to second part (K1 recto) with four woodcuts, full-page skeleton cut on verso, small cut of woman and physician holding a urine flask on Gg1 recto, and 1066 woodcut illustrations in the text, a few minor tears repaired, some occasional staining, vellum index tabs, a very attractive copy in contemporary German binding of oak boards, remains of clasps and part of a stud for a chained binding, bosses removed, half blind-stamped calf with fleurons, crowned eagle, fleurs-de-lys, and initials S.S. in blind, rebacked. Sixth edition (first 1491), and the fourth Strassburg edition (first 1496), being an almost unaltered page-for-page reprint of the three earlier Prüss editions, Beck having inherited Prüss's printing house. A few of the woodcuts are new, and a few were recut as the originals were damaged. The 'Hortus sanitatis', in its many editions and translations was the most popular and influential herbal of its time, and served as an encyclopaedia of the plant, animal, and mineral kingdoms and the medical applications of their products. This edition was the prototype for all subsequent editions. 'Prüss was the man who really profited by the edition of the Latin Hortus (Meydenbach could not issue a second edition); for his editions are printed with wide economy of paper... by the use of 55 lines to the column and a smaller type...

Second Enlarged Aldine Edition, Second Issue (first: 1499) of this encyclopedic work by the celebrated Italian humanist. Perotti's commentary on Book I of Martial's epigrams presents an exhaustive discussion of the etymology, formation, and derivatives of classical Latin words and much information respecting the culture of ancient Rome. Several editions of the work are cited in Simon's bibliography of wine books because of the various references made in the text to wine, viticulture and drunkenness. The second Aldine edition was the first to incorporate Varro's De lingua latina and De analogia, Sextus Pompeius's Festi…fragmenta, and Nonius Marcellus's Compendia. This second issue is dated ‘May 1517' at the bottom of col. 1054 (misnumbered 1064). Perotti was one of a number of prominent scholars employed by Pope Nicholas V in the translation of Greek texts. In 1455 he became a papal secretary, and in 1458 Archbishop of Siponto. He served as papal governor in Viterbo (1464-9) … [Click Below for Full Description]
