Strabo.
Basel, (Valentin Curio), (March) 1523. Folio (220 x 325 mm). (36), 566, (2) pp. With woodcut title border by J. Faber after Hans Holbein, 2 additional borders, printer's device, and numerous initials. Blindstamped limp leather on four raised bands. Early Latin translation of the geography of Strabo, who had visited Egypt and sailed up the Nile in 25 BC. - Even in the introductory chapters, Strabo provides important details on the Arabian Peninsula: "Adjoining the Ethiopians, a needy and nomad race, is Arabia: one part of which is distinguished above all other lands by the title of Felix [i.e., Hedjaz and Nejd-ed-Ared], and the other, though not dignified by that name, is both generally believed and also said to be pre-eminently blessed. Though Homer knew of Arabia Felix, at that time it was by no means wealthy, but a wild country, the inhabitants of which dwelt for the most part in tents. It is only a small district which produces the aromatics from which the whole territory afterwards received its name, owing to the rarity of the commodity amongst us, and the value set upon it. That the Arabians are now flourishing and wealthy is due to their vast and extended trade" (p. 30f.); "Arabia Felix is bounded by the entire Arabian and Persian Gulfs, together with all the country of the tent-dwellers and the Sheikh-governed tribes.

Among his many translations and commentaries on the Greek and Latin classics, his edition of Strabo is perhaps his most important. Strabo's Geography describes not only the geographical features of the chief countries in the Roman world, but also considers their historical and economic development, and provides many pi … [Click Below for Full Description]

MELANCHTHON, PHILIPP.
Melanchthon's Commentary on Romans & Corinthians, With Luther's Preface, Strasbourg, Herwagen, 1523 MELANCHTHON, PHILIPP. Annotationes Philippi Melanchthonis in Epistola Pauli ad Romanos unam, Et ad Corinthios duas. Argentorati Apud Iohannem Heruagium Anno M.D.XXIII. [1523] 9.8 x 15.2cm (book block), small octavo. $1,950.00 Melanchthon's Lectures on Romans & Corinthians greatly stirred Luther who thought they should be published for everyone to read. "When Melanchthon insisted that the word of man should not impede the Word of God, that his commentary might mislead people, Luther simply stole a copy of the lectures and published them with a preface addressed to Melanchthon: 'It is I who publish these annotations of yours, and send you to yourself. If you do not please yourself, very good; it is enough that you please me. The sin is on your side, if there be any sin here. Why did not you yourself publish? Why did you suffer me to ask, command, and urge you so often to publish? This is my defense against you: I am willing to be, and to be called, a thief, fearing neither your complaints nor accusation.' The book was published by John Stuchs and carried numerous errors. When Melanchthon saw the disfigurations he laughed, and said that he hoped Luther, made wiser by experience, would not commit any more thefts! Other editions of the work came out at Strassburg and Basel, and a German translation was printed in Augsburg. This and the Loci made Melanchthon famed as an expositor of the Bible."--Manschreck: Melanchthon the Quiet Reformer (c1958), pp.92-93. Bound earlier calf over b … [Click Below for Full Description]
