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]

HESYCHIUS
(en grec). Hesychii Dictionarium. (In fine:) Haguenau, In aedibus Thomae Anshelmi Badensis, 1521, petit in-folio de 196 ff., veau havane, dos à nerfs orné de rinceaux à froid, plats recouverts de daim avec encadrement à froid, tranches jaspées [Rel. du XIXème siècle], défauts à la reliure, mouillure marginale aux 8 premiers et 8 derniers feuillets, petite déchirure au f. l1. Graesse III, 266. Benzing Bibl. Haguenovienne 85. 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).

Printed on Vellum, with 16 Large Miniatures. Fine example of illumination on vellum in an early binding, from the atelier of the Hardouins, who, along with the Parisian printers Kerver and Simon Vostre, made the printing and illumination of vellum Books of Hours one of their specialties. Books of Hours were traditionally used at home rather than at church and such was demand that "from the mid-thirteenth to the mid-sixteenth century, more Books of Hours were produced, both by hand and by the press, than any other type of book" (Wieck, p7). It's often noted that Books of Hours finally placed access to God in the hands of the public. With the new technology of moveable type, the ability to satisfy demand increased dramatically and, though still expensive, they were now in reach of a far larger section of the public.

ZANGAKI, Georgios and Constantinos.
Cf. Encyclopedia of nineteenth-century photography, p. 1521; Erdem, Views of Egypt by Georgios and Constantinos Zangaki (thesis, Toronto 2006). A rare and large album with 48 photographs by the renowned Zangaki brothers, whose background and history remain in the shadows. They were probably from the Greek island Milos and worked as commercial photographers in Egypt from ca. 1870. The brothers were quite prolific, producing at least 1500 photographs, mostly for Western tourists, drawn to Egypt and the Middle East in increasing numbers since the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. The photographs in the present album were most likely taken during an excursion to the Holy Land in ca. 1880. The album features landscapes and city views, including famous sights such as Jaffa Gate (Bab el-Khalil), Tower of David, the Armenian monastery, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Church of the Flagellation, Al-Aqsa Mosque, Mosque of Omar, Gethsemane, Mount Olive and the Wailing Wall.The photographs with some loss of contrast, otherwise in good condition. The tissue guards and the album's leaves spotted. The binding in very good condition, with the head and foot of the spine slightly damaged and the edges and corners scuffed, and the wood with a few cracks. A fine album of photographs of Palestine.

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.

Lettrines historiées, bandeaux et ornements typographiques. Comme il se doit, daté "Mense februario 1522" au titre et grande marque de Frobenius à la date "mense octobri 1521" au colophon.

Schmoeckel, Mathias / Rückert, J. / Zimmermann, R. (Hg.)
XXXVI, 1521 S. (Teilbd. 1) XIX, S. 1522-3034. Gr.-8, Ln. m. SU. Rücken v. Bd. 1 am Kopf m. leichter Quetschfalte, Schutzumschläge leicht berieben, sonst tadelloses Ex. // Das heute praktizierte Zivilrecht hat sich vom Text des BGB bisweilen weit entfernt. Es wurde auf der Grundlage und im Rahmen des BGB gestaltet, steht aber auch in einem weit darüber hinausreichenden Traditionszusammenhang. Es ist ein zentrales Anliegen des hier vorgelegten Kommentars, diesen Zusammenhang sichtbar zu machen. Das erscheint besonders wichtig in einer Zeit, in der sich die Konturen einer europäischen Privatrechtsordnung abzuzeichnen beginnen. Auch diese neue europäische Privatrechtsordnung wird, bewusst oder unbewusst, auf historischen Grundlagen aufbauen. Zu diesen Grundlagen gehören heute vor allem die nationalen Kodifikationen und die sie ausgestaltende Rechtsprechung und Rechtswissenschaft. Diese nationalen Rechtsstrukturen müssen sich ihrerseits kritisch auf ihre Voraussetzungen hin befragen lassen. Wie sind diese Strukturen entstanden? Von welchen Traditionen und Vorstellungen sind sie geprägt? Wie haben sie sich im Laufe der Zeit bewährt oder verändert? Welche Erfahrungen haben wir in Deutschland mit ihnen gemacht? Worin liegen die Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede der Problemfelder und Problemlösungen vor dem BGB, im BGB und seit dem BGB?

Giacomo da Milano.
per Ioanne Antonio & Fratelli da Sabbio, 1521. In-8° (15,1), legatura antica in p. pergamena semirigida, tagli spruzzati; cc.118 [2] con bella vignetta silografica al frontespizio (natività) e marca tipografica all'ultima carta, titoli in gotico, iniziali ornate; antica nota di possesso al frontespizio; piccola integrazione al margine bianco delle sole carte n1 e n5; minuscoli segni di restauro. Editio princeps della versione italiana dello Stimulus amoris, probabilmente ripresa da un più antico volgarizzamento toscano andato perduto. All'epoca si attribuiva a San Bonaventura da Bagnoregio, San Bernardo di Chiaravalle o Henri de Baume, ma da tempo è assegnato definitivamente al francescano Giacomo da Milano (XIII secolo). Un studio filologico di questo antico testo di misticismo sta in Silvia Mostaccio (DBI, LIV ad vocem). Cfr. Rava, Supp. Sander, 1170 bis. Buon esemplare.
