        [Opera omnia.] Octoginta volumina

      Rome: in the shop of Francisco Minutius Calvo,, 1525. Folio (281 x 207 mm). Modern vellum to style, retaining old edges with title lettered in manuscript to lower edge. Woodcut title page border, Roman, italic and gothic types, table of contents in double columns, index in three columns, printed shoulder notes, large woodcut initials. A very good copy, clean and tall, with the head of the woodcut title page, which is usually found trimmed, entirely unshaved. First edition of the first complete Latin edition of the works of the best known physician of the ancient world. The collection consists of more than seventy books on medicine, of which the Aphorisms and the Airs, Waters and Places are among the most important: the section on epidemics is of great interest as are the clinical descriptions such as pneumonia, malaria and mumps. Descriptions of the ancient instruments are an interesting part of the surgical writings. Hippocrates proscribed a code of medical ethics for his disciples, summarised in the traditional Hippocratic Oath still administered today to physicians on qualification. Marcus Fabio Calvo of Ravenna, a friend of Raphael, prepared a complete Latin translation of the Hippocratic corpus, collating and writing out his own manuscript of the Greek text, depending mainly on a 14th century manuscript, but also consulting a 12th century codex that is one of the oldest and most important Hippocratic manuscripts. The source manuscripts and Calvo's Greek text and Latin translation are preserved in the Vatican Library. These texts form the so-called Hippocratic Corpus, a group of medical texts mostly written in the late 5th and early 4th centuries BCE. These cannot all have been written by one author, as in some cases they are mutually contradictory. After Hippocrates, Galen of Pergamum (c. 129?-216) was the most influential of the ancient physicians. He wrote many books on various medical treatises, among them a number of commentaries on works in the Hippocratic Corpus, including the Aphorisms. After 400 CE, the study and practice of medicine in the Western Roman Empire went into deep decline; most of the writings of Galen and Hippocrates were lost to the West. In the Islamic world, however, these writings were preserved in Arabic translation. The most prominent translator was Hunayn ibn Ishaq (d. c.873). Hunayn ended up translating Galen's whole commentary on the Hippocratic Aphorisms, and so by this route both the Hippocratic text and the Galenic explanations became available in Arabic. As soon as Arabic-speaking physicians had access to the Aphorisms, they began to write commentaries about them. For instance, Abu Bakr Muhammad Zakariya' al-Razi (d. c.925) wrote a substantial commentary that only survives in fragments today. During the 12th and 13th centuries, there was a true proliferation of Arabic commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms. The aphorisms founded a new genre in Arabic medical literature. A number of physicians wrote aphorisms of their own: two famous examples include Abu Bakr al-Razi, who penned a Book of Aphorisms (Kitab al-Fusul), also called The Guide (al-Murshid); and Musa ibn 'Ubayd Allah (Maimonides) authored his own Book of Aphorisms (Kitab al-Fusul), in addition to writing a commentary. The Aphorisms show how Arabic-speaking authors of the medieval period critically engaged with the Greek heritage in Arabic translation. Generation after generation of physicians adapted, adopted, abridged, explained and engaged with the Aphorisms in Arabic. Today, more than a dozen Arabic commentaries on them survive in more than 100 medieval and early modern manuscripts. These rich sources contain many insights that could help us better understand how medicine developed from 10th to the 16th centuries.

        Summula, Raymundi, septem sacramenta ecclesiastica ingeniose complectens, commentariisaac suuculentis glossis scientifici viri magistri Joannis Chappuis explanata atque enucleata

      8vo. Paris: Franciscus Regnault, 1525. 8vo, (10), 230 ff. Title page in red and black, with printer?s device of elephant. Original calf (backstrip restored) blind-stamped with the arms of Henry VIII on the upper cover and the Tudor rose on the lower cover. Two preliminary leaves with lower corners torn away with loss of text; leaves at front and back loose and detaching. Heavily annotated in a few early hands. In folding box with ?Royal Copy? in gilt on backstrip. A canon law treatise by Raymond of Penyafort (circa 1175 - January 6 1275 ), a Spanish Dominican who is the patron Saint of lawyers. An early and very rare edition, of especial interest for its English provenance and annotations in early English hands. De Hamel has called this book ?a typical parish priest?s textbook.? It is signed i.a. by ?William Hogges? and it is probably he who has added folk medicines and herbal remedies at front and back (?medsyn for wartz? e.g.) as well as proverbs in English and Latin one of which includes a very early reference to Robin Hood. A long description by an earlier dealer gets almost everything wrong but identifies the binding as probably by Garrett Godfrey (see Nixon, Five Centuries, p. 28) which might be so. WorldCat locates one copy only world-wide.

        Galeni librorum pars prima. . . . The first 2 volumes of the Aldine Galen (5 volumes were published)

      Aldus, Venice 1525 - The Aldine GalenGalen (A.D. 129 / 130-199 / 200). Galeni librorum pars prima [secunda]. . . . Two volumes only (of five). 2 vols. in 1, folio. [4], 24, 180 [i.e., 181], 108; [4], 184, 106ff. Vol. I colophon leaf (p4) misbound after p1; Vol. I also lacking blank leaves F4 and &6. Venice: in aedibus Aldi, et Andreae Asulani soceri, April 1525 (colophon). 317 x 227 mm. Full morocco, antique. First three leaves of Vol. I repaired, fore-edges of some leaves a little frayed, minor staining but a very good tall copy. Signature on title of the 19th-century scholar Joseph R. Gasquet, author of "The Radical Medicine of Galen in his Time" Brit. & Foreign Med.-Chir. Rev. 11 [1867]: 472-88). Editio Princeps in Greek. Garrison-Morton 27. The first two volumes (of five) of the magnificent Aldine Galen, which, by publishing in one place all the known Greek texts of Galen, marked a new era in both medical and philological scholarship. The collection's five folio volumes, the climax of nearly 100 years of active scholarship, represent the largest single body of text issued by the Aldine press, which had by then passed into the hands of Aldus Manutius's father-in-law Andreas Asulanus, Aldus having died in 1515 before he could fulfil his long-held desire to issue a new edition of Galen. Asulanus, with the help of his sons Franciscus and Fredericus, continued Aldus's scholarly tradition, bringing out a number of Greek literary and historical editiones principes; "but whereas the family's not unlimited linguistic expertise might have sufficed to produce creditable editions of geographers and poets, it was clearly not up to the challenge the works of Galen presented. . . . To meet this challenge, the Pavian professor of medicine G. B. Opizzoni (ca. 1485-ca. 1532) was placed in charge of a large group of assistants recruited mainly from northern medical scholars then studying in Italy: John Clement (ca. 1495-1572), Edward Wotton (1492-1555), William Rose (ca. 1490-1525), and Thomas Lupset (1495-1530), all Brittani and followers of Thomas Linacre (ca. 1460-1524), and the Saxon Georg Agricola (1495-1555), of De re metallica fame." . . . The significance of the first printing of a classical author cannot be overestimated, especially a prolific one like Aristotle or Galen, whose works were not to be found in a single or even very few manuscripts, but had to be pieced together from as many manuscripts as the printer could lay his hands on. Not only did the texts of these authors go from being the private reserve of a few fortunate manuscript-owners and their friends to being available throughout the scholarly world-and that in a standard, corrected form-but their survival from the naufragium of the middle ages was once and for all assured" (Paul Potter, in Norman, 100 Books Famous in Medicine, no. 5). The Aldine Greek Galen was quickly adopted as authoritative, and was relied on heavily by subsequent translators of Galen's works. One of the rarest of Aldine publications, only two or three complete sets of this work have been sold during the past 30 years. A complete set, if it could be found, would be worth in the range of $50,000 or more. We are offering the first two volumes of this work at an affordable price; these volumes contain 37 (nearly one-quarter) of the 160 Galenic texts identified in Durling's bibliography. Among these are the Anatomici libri novem, Galen's major anatomical work; De motu muscularum, containing the first description of artificially stimulated contraction of dissected muscle tissue; works on dissection of the nerves, veins and uterus; the embryological De foetum formatione; and ten works on pharmacology and drug therapy, comprising all of Vol. II.

Roman type, with several fine woodcut initial capitals. 1 vols. Folio.

Sewing loosening, with several gatherings sprung. Some minor scattered worming in margins, dampstaining to last 11 leaves. Owners' inscriptions on title. In half morocco slipcase and chemise. The Origins of Canon Law: the "Collectio Dionysiana" Schoeffer, 1525 A rare and beautiful printing by the son of the celebrated Peter Schoeffer of Mainz. Johann Schoeffer (c. 1468-1531) continued and expanded his father's business, and his extensive list includes works by Erasmus and other humanists, as well as liturgical works and editiones principes of Latin classics (it was in the preface to his edition of Livy of 1523 that Schoeffer attributed the invention of printing to Gutenburg in Mainz in 1450). The present work is of the utmost importance in the history of Canon Law, being the first printing of the famous collection of Dionysus Exiguus, the 6th-century monk whose translations into Latin of the ancient canons of the Church down to the Council of Carthage (419) , along with his his compilation of Papal Decrees (known together as the "Collectio Dionysiana") marked the beginnings of Canon Law.

        Commencan las Horas de nuestra se–ora sancta maria segu la o(r)de de romana.

      - [Spain: c. 1525-1550]. Thick 8vo, 160 x 118 mm, 157 vellum leaves (of 168?), bound in 8s, written in Latin in black ink in a single fine black letter Gothic Rotunda hand with rubrics in red in Spanish, fine 5-line opening illuminated initial in gold on a blue background, hundreds of initials in red, blue, and green in the text some two-line and most one-line. Imperfect as noted below. Original or very early calf over wooden boards, covers with a simple gilt double fillet rectangle enclosing two gilt fleurons, gilt fleurons at corners of rectangles on both covers. Upper cover detached, top corner of f.1 neatly cut away (20 x 30 mm). Old bookplate of Charles Walker Andrews with motto Òcum grano salisÓ. A lovely remnant of what must have been a fine Book of Hours, with the (presumably) nine miniatures removed and lacking the remaining text after leaf 157. Christopher de Hamel noted of this book: ÒThe miniatures must have been wonderful if the script was as good as this, and maybe we can eventually match up this mutilated corpus with a series of detached pictures somewhere. Spanish manuscript Books of Hours are not especially common, maybe because the Spanish often acquired more fashionable Flemish copies from the Spanish Netherlands instead: in fact, PRINTED ones may actually be more common, and this might be copied from a printed text.Ó In our experience also, Spanish books of hours of this period are quite uncommon in any condition; SMU recently notes in an exhibition catalogue ÒThe popularity of Books of Hours in Latin encouraged translations into vernacular languages throughout Europe. In Spain, however, the ecclesiastical authorities were especially conservative, and the Index of Prohibited Books published at Valladolid in 1559 specifically banned Books of Hours in Spanish. As a result, only foreign printers could make such editions available and these could only be used outside of Spain. By decree of the Council of Trent (1545Ð1563), Spanish translations of Books of Hours fell out of use, and most have been lost or destroyed.Ó Although this was written of printed Spanish Hours, it would seem to apply equally to manuscripts of the same period. We could find almost no records of 16th-century Spanish Hours. Provenance: Charles Walker Andrews with his bookplate and note: ÒBot. at Madrid Feby 25 1920.Ó and held by the family ever since. Andrews once had a very fine library which resurfaced with family members in Berkeley in the 1970s at which time we bought a few manuscripts and incunables. Now more books have emerged, sadly mostly the worse for neglect, including this one. Andrews was an early Grolier Club member, from 1902 to 1938 (with two leaves of absence).

        Andreae Mocenici p.v.d. Bellum Cameracense.

      Impressum Venetiis : per Bernardinum Venetum de Vitalibus, 1525 quinto idus Augusti. - In-8 (188) c. alcuni capilettera figurati. Dati editoriali al colophon. Piena pergamena coeva. Tracce di titolo manoscritto al dorso. Legatura con segni di antica presenza di lacci. Mocenigo, Andrea Nobile veneto, filosofo, storico e letterato; fu allievo di Pietro Pomponazzi e si laureò a Padova nel 1503. Procuratore di San Marco e ambasciatore presso Giulio II, fece parte del Maggior Consiglio e ricoprì la carica di avogadore di comune. Nato a Venezia nel 1473 e morto ivi nel 1542. Vitali, Bernardino: Tipografo veneziano attivo a Venezia, Rimini e Roma (secondo Norton, forse anche a Napoli). A Venezia ebbe bottega prima a S. Marina e poi a S. Giuliano. Fu in società con suo fratello Matteo e con Francesco Consorti. Prima edizione di questo trattato sulla Lega di Cambrai. La Lega di Cambrai fu una lega contro la Repubblica di Venezia formata il 10 dicembre 1508 sotto la guida di Papa Giulio II. Ad essa aderirono, oltre al pontefice, Luigi XII di Francia, l'imperatore Massimiliano I, Ferdinando II d'Aragona e il Duca di Ferrara Alfonso I d'Este. La Lega combatté le forze veneziane dal 1508 al 1511: dopo avere sbaragliato le forze veneziane nella battaglia di Agnadello e averne distrutto la flotta nella battaglia di Polesella, l'esercito della Lega arrivò quasi alle "ripe salse" (cioè alle coste della laguna di Venezia) e mise inutilmente sotto assedio Padova; peraltro il condottiero veneziano Bartolomeo d'Alviano conseguì una brillante vittoria in Cadore. Gli avvenimenti successivi resero del tutto vani i risultati da essa conseguiti in terra veneta. Inizialmente, le forze della Lega intendevano occupare e spartirsi la Terraferma dello stato veneto. In base agli accordi, Massimiliano avrebbe ricevuto Verona, Vicenza, Padova e l'Istria. Alla Francia, che già occupava Milano, sarebbero andate Bergamo e Cremona. Otranto sarebbe tornata agli Aragonesi, mentre il papa avrebbe esteso il suo dominio sui restanti possedimenti veneziani. Nel 1510, tuttavia, Giulio II ritenne che la Francia rappresentasse per gli equilibri nella penisola una minaccia ben più grave di Venezia. Fu così che il pontefice lasciò la Lega di Cambrai per allearsi con la Serenissima. L'anno seguente, anche la Spagna e il Sacro Romano Impero cambiarono schieramento, portando così alla creazione della Lega Santa contro la Francia.

Lyndwood's Provinciale "is a collection of the most important ecclesiastical legislation enacted within the province of Canterbury between the Council of Oxford in 1222 and Chichele's archiepiscopate (reign ended 1443). The completed Provinciale was accompanied by a comprehensive subject matter index and, more importantly, by his own extensive marginal gloss. In the fashion of the European "ius commune" the gloss clarified the meaning of the constitutions, related them to the general law of the church, raised legal points of doubt and controversy, and commented upon their observance in the English spiritual courts" ODNB. The text was edited by Josse Badius and the index was compiled by him. William Lyndwood (c. 1375 - 1446) was bishop of St. David's in 1442.

Originally intended not for a Ptolemy edition but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and so cheaper edition of the 'Geography'.

        (griech.) Odysseia. Batrachomnomachia, Hymnoi

      (Straßburg, W. Köpfel) 1525. Einer von zwei Teilen (der andere Teil enthält die "Ilias").. 8°. 251, (61) Bll. Mit Druckermarke in Titelumrahmung (s. Heitz Tafel XVI, Nr. 3, allerdings mit der Bordüre zur "Ilias") und einer größeren Druckermarke Bl. I 8 verso (Heitz Tafel XIX, Nr. 12), alles ankoloriert. Blindgepr. Schweinsleder d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln (nachgedunkelt, etwas berieben) mit Resten eines Rückenschildchens und zwei Schließen. Der erste Teil enthält die literarischen Texte, die 61 letzten Blätter eine Lebensbeschreibung Homers aus der Feder Herodots. Erste Ausgabe in der Herausgabe Lonicers; Melanchthon gewidmet. Der Autor, der am Beginn abendländischer Kultur steht, hat im Laufe der Jahrhunderte die unterschiedlichsten Interpretationsansätze erfahren; gerade in den letzten Jahrzehnten hat die klassische Philologie immer konturierter das Bild von Homer als einem Dichter herausgearbeitet, der mündlich tradierte Epik ("Oral Poetry") aufnahm und diese Einzelteile zu einem Ganzen formte; dazu - so nimmt man an - bedurfte es der Schriftlichkeit, und so steht Homer am Beginn einer auf schriftlicher Fixierung aufbauender Literatur. Eine seiner Leistungen liegt damit in der Ausformung und Zusammenbindung ursprünglich vereinzelter Teile. Er setzt die Einzelepisoden "zueinander und zum Ganzen in Bezug, ordnet und gewichtet die Szenen und schafft dadurch aus den Einzelheiten, wie es griechischem Geist entspricht, ein einheitliches Ganzes ... Dazu kommt ein Zweites. Homers Gestalten sind keine Marionetten ..., die sich ... weidlich als tüchtige Haudegen herumschlagen, sondern erfahren eine menschliche Vertiefung, die sie zum Prototyp einer neuen Menschlichkeit werden lässt" (L. Voit im Nachwort zur Artemis-Ausgabe). "Seit dem 6. Jh v. Chr. zu Schulbüchern geworden, durch Rhapsodenvorträge überall im griechischen Sprachraum verbreitet, von vielen Gebildeten auswendig gelernt, sind Ilias und Odyssee von unabsehbarem Einfluss auf die griechische Sprache, Literatur und bildende Kunst gewesen, sie wurden prägendes Beispiel der griechischen Vergangenheit und Bildner des griechischen Selbstbewusstseins." (KNLL 8, 23). Es ist nicht übertrieben zu sagen, dass Homer neben den Olympischen Spielen zu den wichtigsten Elementen eines gesamthellenischen Bewusstseins einer in Stadtstaaten organisierten griechischen Welt gehört. Die "Odyssee" erzählt die letzten 40 Tage der Heimkehr des Troja-Kämpfers Odysseus nach Ithaka zu Penelope, seiner Frau. Wird im ersten Teil, der Fahrt nach Ithaka, die äußere Heimkehr auf einer abenteuerlichen Reise beschrieben, so geht es im zweiten Teil um die innere Heimkehr: die Überwindung der Entfremdung Penelope - Odysseus nach 20 Jahren Trennung. Damit verknüpft ist das Motiv der Suche nach dem Vater des Sohnes Telemachos (s. DNP 5. Sp. 694 ff.). Vorderer Spiegel mit einer farbigen Wappenzeichnung und mit zahlreichen kleinen Papierausbrüchen, vorderer Vorsatz lose und recto mit handschr. Eintragungen von verschiedenen Händen, z. T alte Besitzvermerke. Hinterer Vorsatz fehlt (ist irgendwann herausgetrennt worden), hinterer Spiegel zur Hälfte mit alten Notizen bedeckt. Titel im unteren weißen Rand mit Besitzereintrag aus dem Jahr 1529(!). Durchgehend leicht gebräunt, einige Lagen etwas wasserrandig, stellenweise mit Flecken. Gegen Ende mit alten Marginalien von mehreren Händen. VD 16 H 4692; Hoffmann II, 315; Schweiger I, 156; Adams H 746; BMSTC (German Books) 412; Muller Koepfel 56; Ritter 1190..

      Rome: Franciscus Minutius Calvus. 1525.. Rome: Franciscus Minutius Calvus. 1525., 1525. FIRST EDITION. Folio, 200mm x 308mm, pp. [lxxxiiii], 733, [i]; lacking last blank, colophon supplied in facsimile. Remboitage 16th century, blind stamped pigskin over oak boards. Recent thin stamped brass clasps to style. Title page, with woodcut border, trimmed as usual at the top, but only very slightly and certainly with better results to the upper margin than most copies. Pinhole to front flyleaf. Occasional marginal ink notes and underlining in an early hand. From the John Rathbone Oliver History of Medicine Collection. An impressive copy of this great influential work. 'This is the first complete Latin edition of the works of the greatest of all clinical physicians' (Printing and the Mind of Man). Various fragments of Hippocrates' works had been published in earlier Greek and Arabic editions, but this is the first version with 80 works translated into Latin. Regarded as the first complete edition of works attributed to the Father of Medicine, it is one of the most important didactic medical books of all time.

        'Quisquis es gloriae Germanicae & maiorum studiosus, hoc utare ceu magistro libello' (Historiae Germanorum), hrsg, von Chaspar Churrer.

      Tübingen 1525 bei Ulrich Morhart der Ältere in 8vo (16 x 10 cm). Übersichtlich-klarer einspaltiger Druck mit breiten weißen Rändern (Satzspiegel: 11/12 x 6,5 cm). Einschl. Titel: 178 ungez. Bl (A12 B8 - X8 Y6). Mod. brauner Kalbs-Ldbd mit schlichter Blindprägung im Stile des 16. Jh. v. ausnehmend makell.-schöner Erhaltung, sowohl innen wie außen. - Berühmte - ganz seltene - EA dieser wichtigen Quelle des MA. Wie aus Melanchth. (1497-1560) Widmungsbrief - hier abgedruckt - an seinen Freund Chaspar Churrer in Tübingen, dem Hrsg. der Chronik, hervorgeht, hatte Melanchth. die Handschr. in der Wittenb. Bibliothek des August.-Klosters entdeckt u. Churrer zur Edition übergeben. Dieser konnte die Barone und Truchsesse Wilhelm u. Georg von Waldburg - hierbei handelt es sich um Georg III., genannt der 'Bauernjörg' (1488-1531, vgl ADB XL 660 ff u. DBE X 100) u. dessen Vetter Wilhelm - zur großzügig. finanz. Unterstütz. bewegen. Deshalb widmet er seine Arbeit den aristokr. Maecenaten ('verae nobilitas viris adeoque generosissimis baronibus ac Dominis & mecoenatibus suis') u. schließt mit: 'Bene valete et Churrerum commendatum habete'. - Lamberts Annalenwerk beschäftigt sich mit der Erschaffung der Welt bis zur Wahl d. Schwabenherzogs Rudolf v. Rheinfelden (um 1025-1080, vgl. ADB 29, 557 f - DBE 8, 436) im Jahre 1077 zum Gegenkönig gegen den rechtmäß. König Heinrich IV. (1050-1106, vgl. DNB 8, 315 - ADB 11, 399 - DBE 4, 519 f). Es gehört unstreitig zum Besten, was die Geschichtsschreib. jener Zeit hervorgebracht hat. Die Schönheit der Sprache, die Eleganz der Form, die Mäßigung u. Würde des Ausdrucks beglücken u. stechen in ihrer epischen Ruhe vorteilhaft ab gegen die Leidenschaftlichkeit der sonstigen Autoren jener Zeit. Hier zeigt sich pragmatische Geschichtsdarstellung mit großem schriftstell. Talent, aber auch ein nicht überall zuverlässiger Parteihistoriker. - Es gibt Expl auch ohne Melanchthon's Widmung (Bl 1b ist weiß); diese Expl waren für die 'Altgläubigen' bestimmt - so wenig 'Aufruhr' wie möglich! - Fortsetz.:.

Bemerkenswerte Autographensammlung aus der Bibliothek des englischen Botanikers und Historikers Dawson Turner (1775-1858) mit seinem eigenh. Besitzvermerk (dat. 1825) am ersten Blatt. Dawson, der zur Botanik publiziert hatte und 1802 zum Fellow of the Royal Society gewählt wurde, wandte sich in den 1820ern der Geschichtsforschung zu. Seine Kinder erhielten Zeichenunterricht von ihrem Freund, dem bekannten Künstler John Sell Cotman aus Norfolk, der 1812 bis 1823 in Yarmouth lebte. - Die Unterschriften, zumeist aus Briefen und anderen Dokumenten herausgeschnitten, stammen von historischen Persönlichkeiten Deutschlands, Frankreichs und der Niederlande, darunter Wilhelm von Oranien (1533-84); Prinz Eugen von Savoyen (1663-1736); Johann Tserclaes Gf. Tilly, Kommandant der kaiserlichen Truppen im Dreißigjährigen Krieg (1559-1632); Cornelius Jansen, Theologe und Kardinal, Begründer des Jansenismus (1585-1638); Philip de Montmorency, Gf. Hoorn (1524-68) und Lamoral von Egmond (1522-68, Gegner der spanischen Herrschaft in den Niederlanden; hingerichtet); Johann Kasimir, Herzog von Sachsen-Koburg (1564-1633); August von Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel, Begründer der Herzog-August-Bibliothek (1579-1666); Johann Wilhelm von der Pfalz, Kurfürst (1658-1716); Andre-Hercule de Fleury, Kardinal (1653-1743); Friedrich, Landgraf von Hessen-Eschwege (1617-1655); Floris van Pallant, Gf. Culemborg (1537-98); Froben Ferdinand zu Fürstenberg-Mößkirch (1664-1741) u. v. a. Den Namenszügen sind zumeist auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite farbige Wappenminiaturen gegenübergestellt; 40 Unterschriften sind eingefaßt von dekorativen lavierten Kartuschen mit jeweils eigens entworfenen figürlichen, floralen und allegorischen Ornamenten, welche im Einzelfall die Federstriche der Unterschrift kongenial integrieren - höchstwahrscheinlich Werke der begabten und kunstsinnigen Familie Turner, womöglich unter Anleitung oder mit Hilfe Cotmans ausgearbeitet. - Gelegentlich leicht braunfleckig; Buchblock gelockert. Ecken bestoßen; Rücken- und Kapitalläsuren. Bemerkenswertes (und bemerkenswert präsentiertes) Autographenensemble; ein charmantes Kabinettstück des frühen 19. Jhs.

The completed Provinciale was accompanied by a comprehensive subject matter index and, more importantly, by his own extensive marginal gloss. In the fashion of the European "ius commune" the gloss clarified the meaning of the constitutions, related them to the general law of the church, raised legal points of doubt and controversy, and commented upon their observance in the English spiritual courts" ODNB. The text was edited by Josse Badius and the index was compiled by him. William Lyndwood (c. 1375-1446) was bishop of St. David's in 1442.

Gasquet, author of "The Radical Medicine of Galen in his Time" Brit. & Foreign Med.-Chir. Rev. 11 [1867]: 472-88).Editio Princeps in Greek. Garrison-Morton 27. The first two volumes (of five) of the magnificent Aldine Galen, which, by publishing in one place all the known Greek texts of Galen, marked a new era in both medical and philological scholarship. The collection's five folio volumes, the climax of nearly 100 years of active scholarship, represent the largest single body of text issued by the Aldine press, which had by then passed into the hands of Aldus Manutius's father-in-law Andreas Asulanus, Aldus having died in 1515 before he could fulfil his long-held desire to issue a new edition of Galen. Asulanus, with the help of his sons Franciscus and Fredericus, continued Aldus's scholarly tradition, bringing out a number of Greek literary and historical editiones principes; "but whereas the family's not unlimited linguistic expertise might have sufficed to produce creditable editions of geographers and poets, it was clearly not up to the challenge the works of Galen presented. . . . To meet this challenge, the Pavian professor of medicine G. B. Opizzoni (ca. 1485-ca. 1532) was placed in charge of a large group of assistants recruited mainly from northern medical scholars then studying in Italy: John Clement (ca. 1495-1572), Edward Wotton (1492-1555), William Rose (ca. 1490-1525), and Thomas Lupset (1495-1530), all Brittani and followers of Thomas Linacre (ca. 1460-1524), and the Saxon Georg Agricola (1495-1555), of De re metallica fame." . . . The significance of the first printing of a classical author cannot be overestimated, especially a prolific one like Aristotle or Galen, whose works were not to be found in a single or even very few manuscripts, but had to be pieced together from as many manuscripts as the printer could lay his hands on. Not only did the texts of these authors go from being the private reserve of a few fortunate manuscript-owners and their friends to being available throughout the scholarly world-and that in a standard, corrected form-but their survival from the naufragium of the middle ages was once and for all assured" (Paul Potter, in Norman, 100 Books Famous in Medicine, no. 5). The Aldine Greek Galen was quickly adopted as authoritative, and was relied on heavily by subsequent translators of Galen's works. One of the rarest of Aldine publications, only two or three complete sets of this work have been sold during the past 30 years. A complete set, if it could be found, would be worth in the range of $50,000 or more. We are offering the first two volumes of this work at an affordable price; these volumes contain 37 (nearly one-quarter) of the 160 Galenic texts identified in Durling's bibliography. Among these are the Anatomici libri novem, Galen's major anatomical work; De motu muscularum, containing the first description of artificially stimulated contraction of dissected muscle tissue; works on dissection of the nerves, veins and uterus; the embryological De foetum formatione; and ten works on pharmacology and drug therapy, comprising all of Vol. II.

        Die Coss Christoffs Rodolff; mit schönen Exempeln der Coss durch Michael Stifel gebessert und sehr gemehrt.Königsberg: Alexandrum Behm von Lutomysl, 1553. First edition, extremely rare.

      A magnificent copy, in contemporary blind stamped pigskin and heavily annotated, of the first edition Stifel's <i>Coss</i>. "This work did for Germany what Cardan's and Tartaglia's did for Italy" (Smith).<br/><br/> This is the first edition by Stifel of Rudolff's <i>Behend vnnd Hubsch Rechnung durch die kunstreichen regeln Algebre so gemeincklich die Coss genennt warden</i> (Strasbourg, 1525), the first German book on algebra, usually referred to simply as the <i>Coss</i>. Rudolff's book having become unavailable, Stifel took on the task of producing a new version, not only reproducing Rudolff's text in its entirety, but adding commentary and additions of his own, which more than doubled the length of the book (Rudolff's 208 pages grew to 494 in Stifel's edition). Stifel's work served for at least the next 150 years as the principal text from which many mathematicians learned their algebra, including Frans van Schooten (1615-1660) (DSB XII: 205) and, as late as the eighteenth century, Leonhard Euler (1707-1783); in fact, it formed the basis of Euler's own algebra textbook, <i>Vollständige anleitung zur Algebra</i> (1770) (see below). "[Stifel] was, in fact, the greatest German algebraist of the sixteenth century" (DSB XIII: 60).</br><br/> "Rudolff's importance in the history of mathematics lies in his having written the first comprehensive book on algebra in German. In this work he went far beyond his teacher Grammateus, especially concerning calculation with rational and irrational polynomials... His writings are remarkable both for the occasional appearance of decimal fractions and for improvements in symbolism... His work also gave a hint of the beginnings of exponential arithmetic and the fundamental idea of logarithms - that is, setting <i>x<sup>0</sup></i> equal to <i>1</i>... In brief, Rudolff's role in the development of mathematical studies in Germany was analogous to that of Fibonacci in Italy... The importance of the <i>Coss</i> was recognized by Gemma Frisius and Stifel, but it soon went out of print. In 1553 Stifel brought out a new edition of the <i>Coss</i> containing supplementary material" (DSB XI: 590-591). </br><br/> Michael Stifel (1487-1567) was a monk in Esslingen who, because he disagreed with the sale of indulgences, became an early follower of Luther. In 1522, to avoid persecution for his beliefs, he made his way to Wittenberg, where he lodged in Luther's home. Luther managed to find him a post as a pastor, but Stifel's cabalistic leanings soon got him into trouble, and he had to move several times before he finally received, through the intervention of Luther and Melanchton, another parish, at Holzdorf, in 1535. "Now cured of prophesying, Stifel devoted himself to mathematics. He enrolled at, and received his master's degree from, the University of Wittenberg, where Jacob Milich was lecturer on mathematics. Stifel gave private instruction in mathematics, and among his pupils was Melanchthon's son-in-law Kaspar Peucer. The years at Holzdorf were Stifel's most productive period. At the urging of Milich he wrote <i>Arithmetica integra</i> (1544), in which he set forth all that was then known about arithmetic and algebra, supplemented by important original contributions... The peaceful years in Holzdorf ended suddenly after the Schmalkaldic War (1547)... Stifel fled to Prussia, where he finally found a position in 1551 as pastor at Haberstroh, near Königsberg. He lectured on theology and mathematics at the University of Königsberg and brought out a new edition of Christoph Rudolff's <i>Coss</i>, which first appeared in 1525 and had since become unavailable. He undertook the republication at the request of a businessman named Christoff Ottendorffer, who paid the printing costs. Stifel reproduced Rudolff's text in its entirety, as well as all 434 problems illustrating the eight rules of the Coss. To each chapter of the original text he appended critical notes and additional developments, most of which he drew from his <i>Arithmetica integra</i>. Stifel's additions are much longer than the corresponding sections of Rudolff's book" (DSB XIII: 59). </br><br/> The influence of Stifel's edition of the <i>Coss</i> was felt for almost two centuries after its publication. "In the Russian Euler archives at St. Petersburg is preserved a manuscript containing a short autobiography dictated by Euler to his son Johann Albrecht on the first of December, 1767. He states that his father Paulus Euler taught him the basics of mathematics with the use of the Stifel edition of Christoff Rudolff's <i>Coss</i>. The young Euler practiced mathematics for several years using this book, studying over four hundred algebra problems. When he decided to write an elementary textbook on algebra, he must have had in mind the first mathematics book he owned. The book was to be used for self study, in the same way that he had used Rudolff's book" (Heffer, pp. 7-8). </br><br/> Little is known of Rudolff's early life. He was in Vienna in 1525 and tells us that he learned algebra, or <i>Coss</i> as it was then known (after the Italian 'cosa', or 'thing', meaning the unknown quantity), from Henricus Grammateus (Heinrich Schreiber), who taught at Vienna from 1517 to 1521. "He supported himself by giving private lessons, and although he was not affiliated with the university, he was able to use its library. Some critics accused him of stealing the examples for his <i>Coss</i> from the Vienna library, an accusation against which he was defended by Michael Stifel in the preface to the new edition of the <i>Coss</i>...</br><br/> "The <i>Coss</i> is divided into two parts. In the first, Rudolff devotes twelve chapters to the topics that the reader must master before taking up the study of algebra (the solution of equations). In chapters 1-4 he presents the basic operations and the rule of three, giving examples with whole numbers and fractions, and then treats the extraction of square and cube roots... In chapters 5 and 6 Rudolff carries out the four operations and the rule of three on algebraic polynomials, after first setting forth the names and symbols of the powers of the unknowns... Chapters 7-11 are devoted to roots, binomials and residues... The first part of the book concludes with a short explanation of the five types of 'proportioned' numbers (multiple, <i>super-particular</i>, and so forth). </br><br/> "In part two of the <i>Coss</i> (which is divided into three sections) Rudolff discusses first- and second-degree equations and their variations of higher degree. He assumes the existence of only eight distinct <i>equationen</i> or 'rules of the coss,' not the twenty-four distinguished by earlier cossists... The second section offers rules (<i>cautelae</i>) for solving equations, and the third is a collection of problems containing over 400 examples. Some of the problems involve abstract numbers; others, taken from daily life, are presented in fantastic forms similar to those of the <i>Enigmata</i> of recreational mathematics. In some of the problems Rudolff introduces a second unknown <i>q</i> (for <i>quantitas</i>). If there are more unknowns than equations, the problem is considered indeterminate. For several such problems concerned with 'splitting the bill' (<i>Zechenaufgaben</i>) Rudolff supplied all the possible solutions. </br><br/> "The <i>Coss</i> ends with three cubic problems. Rudolff does not work out their solution because, as he stated, he wanted to stimulate further algebraic research" (DSB XI: 589-590). The general solution of cubic equations was first given by Cardano and Tartaglia twenty years later. </br><br/> The book is extremely rare both in institutional holdings and on the market. COPAC lists copies at BL, Cambridge and UCL only. We have located only two other copies at auction: a copy presented by Euler to the Prince of Smolensk (Sotheby's 1994), and the Joseph Freilich copy (Sotheby's 2001). </br><br/> VD16, R 3436; BM STC, German Books p. 759; Adams R 863; Smith, <i>Rara Arithmetica</i>, pp. 258-260; Honeyman 2916; Sotheran I, 233; Albrecht Heeffer, <i>The Rhetoric of Problems in Algebra Textbooks from Pacioli to Euler</i> (logica.ugent.be/albrecht/thesis/AlgebraRhetoric.pdf)..

        La Vergine dalla lunga coscia.

      Bulino, circa 1525, monogrammato in lastra in alto a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Raffaello. Esemplare nel raro primo stato di tre, avanti l?indirizzo dell?editore Antonio Salamanca. Bellissima prova, caratterizzata dalla notevole velatura del fondo, impressa su carta vergata coeva recante filigrana ?ancora nel cerchio e stella?, irregolarmente rifilata al rame, in ottimo stato di conservazione.Trasferitosi a Roma nel 1510 circa, Marco Dente lavora nella bottega di Bavero de? Carrocci, al fianco del Raimondi e di Agostino Veneziano. Seguendo l?esempio di Marcantonio, del quale stilisticamente è allievo, inizia a trasferire su carta le opere che il Sanzio commissionava alla bottega.L?incisione è la ripetizione del medesimo lavoro realizzato da Marcantonio Raimondi. Deriva da disegni sul tema della sacra famiglia, realizzati da Raffaello tra il 1518 ed il 1519, eseguiti poi in dipinto da Giulio Romano e Francesco Penni. Conservata insieme al suo antico supporto di collezione. Engraving, circa 1525, signed on the plate at the upper left. After Raffaello. Rare first state of three, before Salamanca's address. A fine impression, showing plated tone effect, with "anchor in circle with star" watermark,on contemporary laid paper, irregularily trimmed on the platemark, generally in very good conditions. Marco Dente settled in Rome around 1510, where he worked under Bavero de Carrocci, together with Raimondi and Agostino Veneziano. Following the example of Marcantonio, Dente begins to transfer on paper works which were commissioned by Sanzio for the workshop. Engraving after a drawing of Raffaello, done between 1518-19. Later on, both Giulio Romano and Francesco Penni, made paintings after the same drawing. Bartsch 58, ?Raffaelo Invenit? XXXVIII, 2 I/III. 270 405

        Ex-libris di Hector Poemer

      Xilografia, 1525, datata in lastra in basso. Magnifica prova, particolarmente contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana ?scudo sormontato da corona?, completa della linea marginale , piccolo restauro all?angolo superiore destro, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Assolutamente controversa la catalogazione di questa importante opera; attribuita dal Bartsch ad Albrecht Durer, quindi dal Pauli ad Hans Sebald Beham, recentemente Zurwesten la inserisce di nuovo nell?opera del Durer, considerandola come il più importante lavoro del maestro nel campo degli ex-libris. Gli esperti oggi concordano sul fatto che il Durer stesso disegnò questo lavoro, poi intagliato da Hieronymus Andreae Resch, come dimostrato dal monogramma posto vicino alla data ?R A 1525? (Resch anno 1525). Nell?Europa del nord del primo Rinascimento un considerevole gruppo di artisti si dedicò alla realizzazione degli ex-libris, molto richiesti da personaggi importanti per identificare il possesso di libri ed oggetti d?arte. Dal 1490 sono riscontrati diversi esempi di lavori del genere, nella scuola di Norimberga ed in particolare dei Piccoli Maestri; la loro qualità estetica ebbe un notevole sviluppo con il passare degli anni, aumentando nel numero degli ornamenti e nella finezza dell?intaglio. Hector Pomer era un prelato della chiesa di San Lorenzo in Norimberga, per questo l? ex-libris raffigura San Lorenzo, nella classica iconografia con la graticola e la palma del martirio. Fantastico esemplare. Woodcut, 1525, dated on plate at lower edge. Magnificent work, particularly disputed, printed on contemporary laid paper with ?shield with crown? watermark, with complete borderline, tiny restoration on the upper right corner, in excellent conditions. The cataloguing of this work is extremely controversial; it has been first ascribed to Albrecht Durer by Bartsch; then to Hans Sebald Beham by Pauli. Zurwesten has lately included it again in Durer?s work, considering it the most important piece of the master in the field of ex-libris. Nowadays, the experts agree that Durer himself prepared the drawing of this work, afterwards carved by Hieronymus Andreae Resch, as it is shown by the monogram ?R A 1525? (Resch, year 1525). In the northern Europe of the first Renaissance,a large group of artists was used to realize many ex-libris, much in demand among famous people to identify their possession of books and pieces of art. Starting from the year 1490, we have had many examples of the genre, mainly from the school of Nuremberg and particularly from the so called Little Masters; their aesthetic qualities have had a great development in the years, increasing the number of ornaments and the perfection of the carving. Hector Pomer was a Provost of the church of St. Laurence in Nuremberg; that is why here we find St. Laurence portrayed with the gridiron and the palm of martyrdom, according to the classical iconography. Excellent work. Bartsch 163, Pauli 1352, von Zurwesten p. 24. 197 295
