Wenige Anstr. und Marginalien von alter Hand. Verblasster Besitzeintrag) Editio princeps des Alcinous-Textes. Apuleius wurde um 125 zu Madaura in Nordafrika geboren, nach Studium der Rhetorik und Philosophie in Karthago und Athen - er beherrschte sowohl die punische wie die lateinische und griechische Sprache - war er als Anwalt und Rhetor in Rom tätig, dann in seiner Heimat als Provinzialpriester des Kaiserkults und Wanderredner. Auf Reisen durch Griechenland und Asien ließ er sich in die Mysterien einweihen. Seine um 170 verfaßten und immer noch mit Vergnügen lesbaren "Metamorphosen", eine Bearbeitung der Verwandlungen des Lukios von Patrai, sind der erste vollständig überlieferte antike Roman und, wie Merkelbach in "Roman und Mysterium in der Antike" schreibt, selbst ein Mysterientext. In ihm wird neben einer Fülle von Abenteuern das berühmte Märchen von Amor und Psyche erzählt; den Abschluß bildet eine Verherrlichung der Mysterien der Isis und des Osiris. In der Apologie verteidigt er sich im Zusamm … [Click Below for Full Description]

Muller, Jan Harmensz (1571-1628) after Leyden, Lucas van (c. 1494-1533)
"Complete series of 14 prints, all deceptively copied after the original series by Lucas van Leyden (published in 1521). 4th state of 4, published in Amsterdam by Clement de Jonghe (c. 1650). The Amsterdam draftsman, printmaker and painter Jan Harmensz Muller (1571-1628) made many drawings and prints thoughout his life. Muller spent several years, from 1594 to 1602, in Naples and Rome before returning to Amsterdam to manage the publishing business he had inherited from his father Harmen Jansz Muller (1540-1617). Muller was trained by his father first and possibly had an apprenticeship in the workshop of Hendrik Goltzius in Haarlem. Though Muller made engravings after his own drawings, many were made after works by Haarlem Mannerists like Goltzius and others. The Passion was published by his own firm [c. 1615-1620]. Later the plates came into possession of the Amsterdam print dealer Cornelis Danckerts and finally Clement de Jonghe, who published the present copy of the series. 1) Last supper, signed on the bottom left with monogram 'L' and date '1421'; 'JMuller excud.' and on the right:'C. de Jonghe exc.'; 2) Christ in the Jetsemani garden, dated and monogrammed on the right bottom:'L 1421'; 3) the betrayal of Christ; ...14) the Resurrection. Handwritten notes from the previous century concerning Friedländer consideration on the present series come together with the prints. "."Engraving on paper with some margin; plate mark: ca. 116 x 16 mm; total: 123 x 81 mm; state IV/4; New Hollstein 42-55; Bartsch 43-56"

RAIMUNDUS, Simon.
Venice: Bernardino Vitale, 9 November 1521. 4to (199 x 140 mm). Collation: [a]4 b6. [10] leaves. Three-line title in large caps on a1r, colophon on b6v. Roman types. 26 lines. Hinges of first and last leaves reinforced, marginal browning; removed from a Sammelband and rebound in modern buckram-backed boards. *** Only edition, the only published work by an otherwise unknown author, containing a neo-Latin poem in dactylic hexameters celebrating the accession of Antonio Grimani to the Dogeship (on 6 July 1521). Another poem, "to the little book," occupies the last three pages. In hendecasyllables, it is helpfully titled "Hend. ad Libellum," and opens "Committas medicas, gravante morbo / Langor quos teneat, maligna febris..." A short prefatory poem on the writing and printing of the work is addressed to Bartolomeo Comino (1468-1544), secretary of the Council of Ten, the leading body of the Venetian government, charged with assuring the Rebublic's security. The notorious secretiveness of the Council's deliberations is alluded to in its heading, "Ad Bartholomaeum Cominum á secretis". No copies in American libraries. EDIT-16 locates copies at the Marciana and Perugia, Biblioteca Communale; OCLC adds a copy at the BSB. EDIT-16 CNCE 73051.

Al-Qabisi, Abu Al-Saqr Abd al-Aziz Bin Othman Bin Ali (Alchabitius)
Venice, Petrus Liechtenstein, 1521. 4to. 64 ff. With several diagrams and woodcut initials in the text and the printer's full-page woodcut device on the final page, printed in red and black. Modern limp vellum with ties. "Early edition of Alchabitius' 'Introduction to the Mystery of Judgments from the Stars', with the 'modern' version by Antonius de Fantis. Sessa issued the same work at the same time, but Liechtenstein's edition is superior and especially esteemed for the fine woodcut in black and red (printer's mark) at the end" (Weil). Translated by Joannes Hispalensis (in 1144), with the commentary of Joannes de Saxonia. "Although al-Qabisi's education was primarily in geometry and astronomy, his principal surviving treatise, 'Al-madkhal ila sina'at ahkam al-nujum' ('Introduction into the Art of Astrology') in five sections [...], is on astrology. The book, as the title indicates, is an introductory exposition of some of the fundamental principles of genethlialogy; its present usefulness lies primarily in its quotations from the Sassanian Andarzghar literature and from al-Kindi, the Indians, Ptolemy, Dorotheus of Sidon, Masha'allah, Hermes Trismegistus, and Valens. Although completely lacking in originality, it was highly valued as a textbook [... The] Latin version was commented on by Joannes de Saxonia at Paris in 1331" (DSB). - Title slightly smudged; occasional waterstaining.

Vigo's "Chirurgia" consists of nine books ranging from a consideration of anatomy necessary for a surgeon, to sections on abscesses, wounds, ulcers, benign and malignant tumors, fractures and dislocations, pharmaceuticals, ointments and plasters, as well as sections on dentistry, exercise, diet, syphilis, among others. De Vigo introduces a novel approach for treating mandible dislocations and describes a trephine he invented, as well as a number of new instruments. Examination of his surgical piece demonstrates that he had a broad spectrum of knowledge in surgery based in part on the ancient Greek and Arabic medical literature but mainly on his personal experience.

(4) lxix [manca l'ultima carta bianca della seconda parte]. Due opere in un volume di cm. 32. Splendidi frontespizi xil. con cornice ornamentale (putti, figure, animali) e bellissima vignetta centrale; numerosi capilettera ornati. Legatura antica in piena pergamena rigida ottimamente rimontata; titoli ms. al taglio di piede. Antiche note ms. di mano coeva. Piccolo restauro al margine esterno (bianco) delle primissime cc.; sporadiche fioriture, lieve alone al margine di poche cc., trascurabile lavoro di tarlo limitato al margine esterno di poche cc. Antica macchia d'inchiostro alle cc. 77-78 della prima parte che determina la non leggibilità di alcune parole. Esemplare nel complesso ben conservato. Guillaume Budé (1467-1540), celebre umanista parigino, va annoverato anche fra i principali esponenti dell'umanesimo giuridico. Budé ricoprì numerose cariche pubbliche, partecipò al movimento della Riforma umanistica, diede un decisivo contributo alla creazione del Collége de France e del patrimonio librario della Biblioteca Nazionale. Celebri anche i suoi commentari sulla lingua greca ed il De asse, importante trattato sulle monete e misure antiche. Queste annotazioni al Digesto giustinianeo, centrali per la comprensione della critica del mos italicus e dell'intera tradizione post-accursiana, prendono spunto decisivo dai viaggi italiani in cui l'A. visionò la littera florentina.

SANGIORGIO BENVENUTO.
Trino, Giovanni Giolito de Ferrari, 22 marzo 1521. In-4ø; 60 carte. Frontespizio in rosso e nero entro cornice, tipica dei Giolito da Trino, composta da 4 blocchi. Legatura cinquecentesca in tutto marocchino bruno, doppia cornice in oro ai piatti e stemma con cifra W. G. (riutilizzata). Forellino di tarlo restaurato; per altro bell'esemplare con ex-libris Olschki (si tratta infatti dello stesso descritto in Choix V, 5265). Assai rara edizione che segue di due anni la prima astigiana del Silva. L'autore, il cavaliere gerosolimitano Benvenuto da S. Giorgio, conte di Biandrate (Casale 1450-1527), scrisse anche una basilare cronaca del Monferrato di cui la presente opera Š il fondamento e che fu pubblicata postuma solo nel 1637, anch'essa assai rara (cfr. Lozzi 2868, Manno 39214-15. Platneriana 213). Secondo lo Zucchi (Bibliografia storica degli Stati della Monarchia di Savoia, vol. X, n. 39214), di quest'opera sarebbero uscite, con piccole varianti, due ristampe trinesi nello stesso anno 1521; ma sugli esemplari da noi visti, anche fuori dal Piemonte, non abbiamo rilevato nessuna delle varianti da lui notate sull'esemplare della Biblioteca Nazionale di Torino (distrutto nel 1942). La bella cornice Š composta da quattro legni: i due montanti (mm. 104 x 15 e 105 x 16) sono ornati da putti e fogliame; i lati superiore (mm. 13 x 99) e inferiore (mm. 37 x 97), da figure. Quest'ultimo, raffigurante la tentazione di Adamo ed Eva nel paradiso terrestre, Š identico a quello usato da Bernardino Stagnino per il frontespizio del Dante di Venezia del 24 novembre 1512.

FOLENGO (Teofilo).
( A la fin:) Tusculani, Apud Lacum Benacensem, Alexander Paganinus, 1521, die V januari. Petit in-8. 272 feuillets chiffrés. Parchemin de l'époque Première édition illustrée complète (la Ière, sans images, était paru en 1517), d'un des textes les plus originaux de la littérature italienne du seizième siècle. Elle est ornée de 54 bois gravés à pleine page, évoquant les aventures de l'auteur. Teofilo Folengo (1491-1544), moine défroqué et poète, mendiant et chanteur des rues, est le créateur, avec cet ouvrage qui est la chronique transposée de ses aventuers, du genre macaronique, récit qui mélange le latin de cuisine et le patois toscan, des gros mots italiens et des tournures populaires. Son titre, qui peut se traduire comme des "macaroni" presentés au public par le cuisinier Merlin, a donné son nom à ce genre litéraire. Folengo aurait eu une influence sur Rabelais. Exemplaire avec des rouseurs, quelques taches et traces de manipulation, court de marges comme il est habituel. Il ne content pas le cahier à part de 8ff. "qui manque souvent" (Graesse), imprimé probablement après et dont il y a 2 tirages offrant des différences entre eux. Il provient de la collection du Capitaine Michiels [livres précieux et raretés bibliographiques] dont le catalogue parut en 1774; il porte le cachet de sa bibliothèque et une note manuscrite. Le dernier feuillet, qui est doublé, contient au verso 3 dessins anciens (17ème siècle ?) dont un représente un faune ou un satyre. Cf. Brunet II, 1317. Olschki, Choix, 4550.

Prima edizione aldina della raccolta collettiva delle opere di Apuleio, che comprende la sua opera più celebre, "Asinus aureus", e vari altri trattati di filosofia platonica: "Floridorum libri IV " (raccolta di passi dei suoi discorsi), "De Deo Socratis liber I" (trattato che espone la dottrina platonica di demoni benefici intermediari tra uomini e dei), il trattato su Platone "Vita, instituta, dogmata Platonis" ed i due libri della di lui "Apologia", apprezzata soprattutto come fonte di notizie biografiche. In fine trovasi il sommario di filosofia platonica di Alcinous, ammiratore di Lucrezio, impresso soltanto in greco perché, come si avverte sul front. generale, la traduzione latina, fatta da un certo vescovo "Tropiensis", era cosa barbara.

BERNARD OF GORDON
1521. Text in double columns. Woodcut initials & woodcut device on last page. 124 leaves. Folio, modern binding using old vellum boards with new spine, corners, & endpapers (several small diminishing wormholes in the first few leaves, lower blank corner of title-page damaged & neatly restored). Venice: Giunta, 1521. Sixth edition (the first five are all incunables) of the Practica or Lilium medicinae, the principal work of one of the medical luminaries of the Middle Ages. Bernard of Gordon (ca. 1258-1318), of Scottish descent but born in France, was a professor at Montpellier from 1283 to 1307. He spent his entire teaching career at Montpellier and contributed greatly to the university's fame as the outstanding medical school in Europe. He completed the Lilium in 1305.The founding of the medical school at Salerno in the eleventh century began to breathe new life into European medicine, which in the Middle Ages had been entirely in the hands of the Jewish and Arabian physicians.The Lilium preserves the Arabic tradition, but also contains much original material, and is one of the works which laid the foundations of medical literature in the fourteenth century, from the schools of Montpellier, Paris, Bologna, and Padua. It contains, inter alia, the first description of a modern truss, the first mention of eyeglasses (oculus berellinus), and the suggestion that muscles move due a mechanical action of the nerves. Modern studies have been made of Bernard's treatises on epilepsy, marasmus, smallpox, and urology. The Lilium was translated in the Middle Ages into French, … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cet important dictionnaire grec parut pour la première fois en 1514, chez les Alde, à Venise, le texte ayant été établi d'après un manuscrit prêté par Giacomo Bardellone, noble de Mantoue. Cette édition, la troisième, est le premier ouvrage grec imprimé dans la ville alsacienne d'Haguenau, près de Strasbourg. Elle reprend celle des Alde, à deux colonnes (numérotées ici 1 à 776). Ce dictionnaire grec est le seul ouvrage qui nous soit parvenu du grammairien et lexicographe grec, Hesychius ou Hésychios d'Alexandrie qui vécut vers le Ve ou VIe siècle de notre ère. L'ouvrage contient une multitude de renseignements précieux pour l'histoire et la philologie ancienne, dont des expressions et passages de livres aujourd'hui perdus. "On y trouve les expressions les moins usitées qui se rencontraient dans les poètes, les orateurs, les philosophes, les médecins et les historiens; celles qui étaient particulières à quelques peuples, comme les Crétois, les Lacons?; les termes usités dans les sacrifices, les divinations, la gymnastique, etc.; enfin tous ceux qui sortent de l'usage ordinaire de la langue (?). Malgré des défauts, ce lexique est très important?" (Ho … [Click Below for Full Description]

ERASMUS, Desiderius.
(Mainz, Johann Schöffer), 1521. Full woodcut historiated title-border and typographic title. 3 ff. Sm.-4to. 19th century morocco (Hans Asper, Geneva). From the library of Gaspard Ernest Stroehlin (1844-1907) with his exlibris "Mente Libera". (Mainz, Johann Schöffer), 1521. First edition. In addition to the Greek and Latin writings of Erasmus' (1467-1536) we know a small number in German language. The humanist's paraphrases of the Evangelists were greeted with immediate popularity, and received numerous reprintings. The seven woes to the Scribes and Pharisees in Matthew 23 are a list of critical words by Jesus against the religious leaders as hypocrisy and perjury. Because of Erasmus' critique of the Roman Catholic Church in the first edition of the Index Librorum Prohibitorum (1564) his writings were more severely condemned than the works of Luther or Calvin. - A nice copy of a rare booklet, seldom found in a library outside Germany. - VD 16 E 3123; Vander Haegen I, 149 (assigns this edition as the first one and printed by Johann Schöffer in Mainz); Bezzel 1239; not in Pegg (Swiss).

ALPHONSUS, REX.
nuper quam diligentissime cum additionibus emendate. (Sul titolo:) Venetiis, ex officina litteraria Petri Liechtenstein, 1518. (In fine:) Venetiis, Petrus Liechtenstein, 1521. in-4, ff. 120, legatura settec. mezza pelle, tit. e filetti oro al dorso. Testo in carattere semigotico, numerose grandi iniziali ornate e istoriate su fondo nero, in fine magnifica impresa tipogr. a piena pagina con tre sfere armillari, impressa a due colori. Importante e rara edizione di queste celebri tavole astronomiche (''Coelestium motuum tabulae'') fatte compilare nel 1252 dal grande illuminato Re Alfonso X di Castiglia (''il Sapiente'', 1221-1284); l'autore è, secondo alcuni, l'astronomo arabo Isaac aben-Sid, e secondo altri, Isaac Hazan.
