Colophon : "excussum in officina Johannis Prenel. Anno salutis humane millesimo quinqentesimo vigesimo sexto. Mensis Maij."  Reliure en demi chagrin à coins milieu XIXe.

Une déchirure sur la moitié de la page au feuillet focccxcix. Nombreuses erreurs de foliotation. Le Decret d'or de Gratien ou La concorde des canons discordants (concordantia discordantium canonum), constitué d'un florilège de textes juridiques est l'une des oeuvres canoniques les plus importantes du Moyen âge ; elle rassemble plus de 3800 textes : canons dits apostoliques, textes patristiques, décrétales pontificales, décrets conciliaires, lois romaines et franques, etc. On situe sa composition vers 1140. L'épithète "or" semble particulier à cette édition, on ne le trouve dans aucune autre et il semble que l'on ne nommait pas ainsi son oeuvre, seulement du titre de Decret de Gratien. Le titre de Concordantia semble avoir été choisi par Gratien lui-même, il réfère à la méthode et au projet juridique : les canons sont groupés par thèmes, l'auteur leur ajoutant un commentaire destiné à concilier les différences, le Dictum ; il adopte parfois une méthode inverse, formulant des interrogations sur un même thème, la réponse se faisant sous forme de citations. En mêlant son propre commentaire aux textes juridiques, en regroupant les canons thématiquement par un texte introductif, et en relativisant leurs valeurs, Gratien innove considérablement la littérature juridique. La cohérence propre à l'oeuvre contribuera à son adoption quasi immédiate par de nombreuses écoles de droit.  L'ouvrage est composé de trois parties distinctes : Les Distinctiones, qui regroupent le droit divin, naturel et coutumier ; les Causae qui abordent les grandes sections du droit canonique, à savoir la nomination et la récusation des évêques, les revenus, l'hérésie, l'excommunication ; enfin la dernière partie qui est de loin la plus mince, le De consecratione, qui traite de la consécration des églises, de la messe, du baptême...  L'oeuvre de Gratien demeurera le fondement du droit canonique jusqu'en 1917, date de promulgation du Code de droit canonique.

        Opus divinum, cui titulus naturalis historiae, multoquam antehac unquam prodiit in lucem castigatius, una cum annotationibus Hermanolai barbari. Paris, (Nicolaus Sauetier) for Jean Petit, 1526.

      1526. Folio. (188), (34), CCCCCXXXVI [= CCCCCXXXVIII; 538] pp. Title-page in red and black and separate title-page to index, both with woodcut border. Elaborately decorated calf, with image of the crucifixion on both panels. Blind-tooled spine. First and only Paris edition of "Historiae naturalis", with the annotations by Hermolaus Barbarus (1454-1494), an Italian Renaissance scholar. His discussions of Pliny's Naturalis Historia was first published as Castigationes Plinianae in 1492, in which he made over 5000 corrections to the original text. Due to this work and other classical works he translated or edited he was considered a leader authority on Latin and Greek work on antiquity. The present copy was published by Jean Petit, in his days a leading book seller in Paris, who's name and device are shown on the title-page with decorative woodcut border. The title-page to the index, here bound before the text, has the initials of the printer Nicolaus Sauetier. - The original text was by Gaius Plinius Secundus (AD 23 - August 25, AD 79), better known as Pliny the Elder. He was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and personal friend of the emperor Vespasian. - The Naturalis Historia is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available to Pliny. He claims to be the only Roman ever to have undertaken such a work. It comprised 37 books in 10 volumes and covered over 20,000 facts on topics including the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy, geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Some technical advances he discusses are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding corn. Much of what he wrote about has been confirmed by archaeology. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf [...] Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls [... He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised [...] The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 holds a chapter that gives the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. - Not only is it virtually the only work which describes the work of artists of the time, and has it become an important reference work for the history of art, due to the wide range of topics, the referencing system and index it became a model for later encyclopaedias. - Panels shaved, affecting the decoration, spine cracked on the hinges. With owner's manuscript ownership on title-page of the index, which is bound before text. A good copy. Bird 1910. USTC (2 copies). Not in Adams, BMC French, Durling, Hunt, Wellcome.

      - O.O. u. Dr. (Augsburg, P. Ulhart), 1526. Kl.-4to. 30 Bl. Mit großem Titelholzschnitt. Neuer flexibler Pergament mit Schließbändern. Erste (einzige) Ausgabe. - Haug Marschalck, gen. Zoller, stand als Kriegsmann im Dienst der Stadt Augsburg. Er nahm aktiv am kirchlichen Leben teil und stellte sich entschieden auf die Seite der damals noch oft bedrängten Augsburger Lutheraner. Gemäß Luthers Votum vom allgemeinen Priestertum der Gläubigen war er auch einer der ersten, der sich als theologischer Laie öffentlich äußerte. Dabei zeigte er sich als unabhängiger, tieferblickender Geist, der schon früh eine Schwäche in der reformatorischen Bewegung empfand. "Ausgangspunkt ist für ihn die Frage nach der tatsächlichen Wirkung des Evangeliums, das von vielen gepriesen werde, während doch die Früchte fehlten" (Laube, Flugschriften I, 42). Dieser zentralen Frage geht auch die vorliegenden Schrift nach. "Von vilen hören wir: irrung, irrung, Aber von wenigen: ursach, ursach". Der Titelholzschnitt zeigt einen Blinden, der sich in unwegsamem Gelände zwischen Felsen, dornigem Gestrüpp und einem Fallnetz herumtastet. - Sehr selten.- Kuczynski 2402 (ohne Auflösung des Pseudonyms); Schottenloher, Ulhart 140; VD16 M 1082. - Ränder knapp beschnitten, an den wenigen gedruckten Marginalien meist mit Buchstabenverlust. Titel fleckig u. mit kurzer hinterlegter Wurmspur. [Attributes: First Edition]

Esemplare rifilato ai margini (con perdita di una lettera nello schema interno stampato nel testo). Legatura in p. pg antica. Seconda edizione rarissima, la prima ristampa dopo la princeps del 1525 che si intitolava Libro de natura de amore di questo trattato scritto nei primi anni del Cinquecento e vistosamente normalizzato dal punto di vista linguistico nelle edizioni successive alla princeps. L'opera ebbe un'ampia fortuna. Se ne conoscono quattordici edizioni (l'ultima e' del 1607) comprese quelle dei rifacimenti toscani di L. Dolce e T.

Decio Philippe Jurisonsulte né en 1454, désigné auditeur de Rote par Innocent VIII; professeur à Padoue puis à Pavie, il fut de ceux qui conseillèrent Louis XII en guerre contre Jules II ce qui lui valut d'être excommunié. Réfugié en France, Décio fut conseillé au parlement de Grenoble et professeur à l'université de Valence. Il devait mourir à Sienne en 1533. Unique ensemble dont nous n'avons pu localiser d'autres exemplaires dans les bibliothèques publiques. Magnifiques et imposantes impressions Lyonnaises dans un état de conservation remarquable. Ces impressions gothiques sur 2 colonnes à 80 ou 82 lignes présentent encore de nombreuses caractéristiques de l'incunable et montrent le niveau de qualité atteint par les imprimeurs lyonnais seulement 70 ans après que Gutenberg ait donné sa célèbre Bible. La présence de cette macule de relieur en parchemin enluminé prouve la désaffection de l'époque pour ces manuscrits, totalement abandonnés au profit de la moderne imprimerie et relégués en claies et autres protections.

        I dodici mesi dell'anno.

      prima metà del XVII secolo.. Fascinosa serie di 12 incisioni in rame di mm 125x175, che rappresentano scene di vita quotidiana relative ad ogni mese con il segno zodiacale corrispondente. La stampa avvenne nell'officina romana di Nicolas Van Aelst (Bruxelles 1526 - Roma 1613). Antonio Tempesta detto il Tempestino (Firenze 1555 - Roma 1630) fu un pittore e incisore del primo periodo barocco. Sotto la supervisione di Giorgio Vasari lavorò alle decorazioni dell'interno di Palazzo Vecchio a Firenze. Trasferitosi a Roma, strinse legami con artisti fiamminghi, dei quali si percepirà l'influenza in tutta la sua opera successiva. Tra le sue opere pittoriche si ricordano il "Trasferimento delle Reliquie di San Gregorio Nazianzeno" e altre scene religiose nelle logge del terzo piano del Palazzo Vaticano, gli affreschi a tema paesaggistico della Palazzina Gambara a Villa Lante in Bagnaia, la decorazione di Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, e gli affreschi della Villa d'Este a Tivoli. Buone condizioni.

        L'Adorazione dei Pastori

      1526. Acquaforte e bulino, 1526 circa. Esemplare nel primo sttao di due descritto da Mistrali. Bellissima prova, contrastata, impressa su carta vergata coeva, rifilata al rame, in perfetto stato di conservazione. In relazione al soggetto dell'Adorazione dei Pastori, Parmigianino realizzò una serie di disegni alternativi, uno dei quali fu inciso da Jacopo Caraglio nel 1526. I disegni dimostrano che l'artista aveva in mente una composizione verticale, prima di realizzare il modello preparatorio per l'incisione di Jacopo Caraglio, in formato orizzontale. Proprio il confronto tra le caratteristiche stilistiche dell'incisione di Caraglio e quelle di quest'acquaforte, nonché dei disegni preparatori di entrambe le opere, fa datare a A. Gnann l'incisione intorno al 1526 o poco prima. L'opera, come sottolineato dallo studioso, può essere messa in relazione con due disegni preparatori: uno conservato a Windsor (Popham, n. 644), in cui compaiono le due donne in primo piano, ma la scena dell'Adorazione è lievemente mutata, e un secondo conservato a Stoccarda (Popham, n. 593), che corrisponde all'acquaforte nel taglio e nelle dimensioni, ma che vede in primo piano due uomini. Inoltre, al Louvre si conserva un disegno a penna con uno schizzo (Popham, n. 368) per la figura di Maria con il Bambino. L'Adorazione dei pastori, si collega direttamente con Lo sposalizio di Maria del 1525. In entrambi i casi, infatti, Parmigianino sposta l'avvenimento principale in secondo piano e accresce la tensione inserendo in primo piano figure di dimensioni maggiori. Rispetto allo Sposalizio però, i movimenti risultano più dinamici e vengono collegati tra loro grazie a un chiaroscuro più ricco di contrasti. Nel secondo stato dell'acquaforte, questo effetto è ulteriormente accentuato con una serie di tratteggi curvilinei sulla schiena del pastore adorante in piedi a destra. Rispetto alle due acqueforti del 1524 - 1525 della Sepoltura di Cristo, dove l'artista usa linee allungate che si dispongono sulle figure come a crearne una sottilissima rete, qui le linee appaiono più corte ed accentuano la plasticità dei corpi. I movimenti non confluiscono più l'uno nell'altro e per via dei contrasti più ricchi, anche le architetture risaltano in modo evidente. Le medesime caratteristiche stilistiche si riscontrano proprio nell'incisione del Caraglio, per cui la datazione di quest'opera può risalire allo stesso periodo. Ex collezione Fransz Gawet (Lugt 1069) J.E. WETTERAUER (Lugt 3183) V. Blum (sconosciuto al Lugt) Magnifico esemplare di questa importante incisione. Etching and engraving, 1526 ca. Example of the first state of two described by Mistrali. A fine proof, printed on contemporary laid paper, trimmed to the platemark, in perfect condition. In Rome between 1524 and 1527, Parmigianino made a number of drawings that explored the composition of an Adoration of the Shepherds, probably in preparation for the horizontal composition engraved by Jacopo Caraglio in 1526. This work, as noted by A. Gnann, may be related with two preparatory drawings: one at Windsor (Popham, n. 644), in which there are two women in the foreground, but the scene of the slightly changed, and a second at Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart Stuttgart (Popham, n. 593), which corresponds to the etching in the cut and size, but shows two men in the foreground. Moreover, the Louvre is conserved a pen drawing (Popham, n. 368) with a sketch for the figure of Mary and Child. The Adoration of the Shepherds, is connected directly with The Marriage of Maria of 1525. In both cases, in fact, Parmigianino moves the main event in the second floor and increases the tension by inserting in the foreground figures larger. Compared to Marriage, however, here the movements are more dynamic and are connected to each other through a chiaroscuro more rich in contrasts. Compared to the two etchings of 1524 - 1525 of the Entombment of Christ, where the artist uses elongated lines on figures as to create a very thin network, here the lines are shorter and accentuate the plasticity of bodies. The movements don't flow over into each other and due to the richer contrast, the architectures also stand out clearly. The same stylistic features are found precisely in the engraving of Caraglio, so the dating of this work can be traced. Ex collection Fransz Gawet (Lugt 1069) J.E. WETTERAUER (Lugt 3183) V. Blum (sconosciuto al Lugt) A great example of this important work by Parmigianino. Mistrali, Parmigianino Incisore, 15 I/II; Bartsch xvi, 3; T.I.B. 32, 7 (10); A.

A3 verso a piena pag., le altre di varie grandezze), numerose grandi iniziali figuratesu fondo nero; tutte tratte da precedenti edizioni. L'opera di Lichtenberg (1440? - 1503) è costituita da una serie di profezie che sarebbero state indotte dall'inconto di Saturno e Giove nel 1484 e dall'eclisse solare del 1485. In realtà, essendo stato l'Autore l'astrologo ufficiale dell'Imperatore Federico III, l'opera esprime dei voti di riforma degli affari pubblici ed ecclesiastici sotto forma di predizione. L'opera (prima ed. Heidelberg 1488) ebbe comunque grande fortuna tra la fine del XV e l'inizio del XVI secolo. Bellissimo esempl. di noto testo figurato rinascimentale, entro preziosa legatura.

Titolo entro bella bordura ad intrecci su fondo nero; testo in corsivo. Comprende 165 Sonetti, 3 Egloghe, 7 Epistole, 20 Capitoli, 3 Disperate, 27 Strambotti e 19 Barzellette. Francesco Flavio riunì per primo nel 1502 le rime del Serafino de' Ciminelli, (1466 - 1500) noto come Aquilano; tra i massimi rappresentanti della ''lirica cortigiana'' che si divise tra le corti del cardinale Ascanio Sforza a Roma, di Ludovico il Moro a Milano, di Francesco Gonzaga a Mantova. La sua straordinaria capacità di improvvisazione poetica, unita sovente all'accompagnamento musicale delle proprie rime, o alla sua interpretazione con il liuto di composizioni petrarchesche, fece sì che egli intraprendesse delle vere e proprie ''tournée'' nelle principali corti dell'Italia settentrionale. Nonostante le sue opere abbiano avuto ben 20 edizioni tra il 1502 e il 1513, la loro fortuna popolare ha fatto sì che siano tutte di estrema rarità. Hilaire - Bernard de Requeleyne barone di Longepierre fu scrittore e bibliofilo francese (Digione 1659 - Parigi 1721). Raccolse belle edizioni di classici antichi e francesi. I suoi volumi, ornati nella rilegatura di un piccolo toson d'oro, furono da lui lasciati al cardinale di Noailles (in seguito la raccolta è passata quasi tutta in Inghilterra). Queste semplici ma raffinate legature furono opera dell'Atelier di Padeloup o di Augustin Du Seuil (1673 - 1746). Charles Nodier nella prefazione al catalogo Pixéricourt fa notare: ''Les reliures de la bibliothèque Longepierre [..] jouissent du même crédit auprès des amateurs que celles qui annoncent les livres de Grolier, du président de Thou et du comte d'Hoym.

        Orationes, et epistolae ... ad usum scolarum selectae.

      Marc Antoine Muret (1526-85), better known by the Latin form of his name, Muretus, started his literary career in Paris as a member of the circle of young poets that also included Dorat and Ronsard, and in 1553 he published a French commentary on Ronsard's Amours. He later moved to Italy, where he became one of the leading classicists of his day. He has long been recognized as the best Latin prose stylist of the Renaissance, and his works were used, as this textbook exemplifies, as a model for students. Vol. I of this work contains selections from his speeches, while vol. II contains letters. This particular collection of Muretus for students was apparently first published in 1739 and regularly republished during the 18th century. An engraved portrait of Muretus serves as the frontispiece for vol. I.No U.S.copies traced via NUC Pre-1956 or WorldCat.

La stampa avvenne nell'officina romana di Nicolas Van Aelst (Bruxelles 1526-Roma 1613).Antonio Tempesta detto il Tempestino (Firenze 1555-Roma 1630) fu un pittore e incisore del primo periodo barocco. Sotto la supervisione di Giorgio Vasari lavorò alle decorazioni dell'interno di Palazzo Vecchio a Firenze. Trasferitosi a Roma, strinse legami con artisti fiamminghi, dei quali si percepirà l'influenza in tutta la sua opera successiva. Tra le sue opere pittoriche si ricordano il "Trasferimento delle Reliquie di San Gregorio Nazianzeno" e altre scene religiose nelle logge del terzo piano del Palazzo Vaticano, gli affreschi a tema paesaggistico della Palazzina Gambara a Villa Lante in Bagnaia, la decorazione di Palazzo Farnese in Caprarola, e gli affreschi della Villa d'Este a Tivoli.Buone condizioni.

        Opus divinum, cui titulus naturalis historiae, multoquam antehac unquam prodiit in lucem castigatius, una cum annotationibus Hermanolai barbari.

      Paris, (Nicolaus Sauetier) for Jean Petit, 1526. - Folio. (188), (34), CCCCCXXXVI [= CCCCCXXXVIII; 538] pp. Title-page in red and black and separate title-page to index, both with woodcut border. Elaborately decorated calf, with image of the crucifixion on both panels. Blind-tooled spine. First and only Paris edition of Historiae naturalis, with the annotations by Hermolaus Barbarus (1454-1494), an Italian Renaissance scholar. His discussions of Pliny's Naturalis Historia was first published as Castigationes Plinianae in 1492, in which he made over 5000 corrections to the original text. Due to this work and other classical works he translated or edited he was considered a leader authority on Latin and Greek work on antiquity. The present copy was published by Jean Petit, in his days a leading book seller in Paris, who's name and device are shown on the title-page with decorative woodcut border. The title-page to the index, here bound before the text, has the initials of the printer Nicolaus Sauetier. - The original text was by Gaius Plinius Secundus (AD 23 - August 25, AD 79), better known as Pliny the Elder. He was a Roman author, naturalist, and natural philosopher, as well as naval and army commander of the early Roman Empire, and personal friend of the emperor Vespasian. - The Naturalis Historia is one of the largest single works to have survived from the Roman empire to the modern day and purports to cover the entire field of ancient knowledge, based on the best authorities available to Pliny. He claims to be the only Roman ever to have undertaken such a work. It comprised 37 books in 10 volumes and covered over 20.000 facts on topics including the fields of botany, zoology, astronomy, geology and mineralogy as well as the exploitation of those resources. It remains a standard work for the Roman period and the advances in technology and understanding of natural phenomena at the time. Some technical advances he discusses are the only sources for those inventions, such as hushing in mining technology or the use of water mills for crushing or grinding corn. Much of what he wrote about has been confirmed by archaeology. ''We know from Pliny that there were important pearl fisheries in the Gulf [.] Pliny identifies Tylos (Bahrain) as a place famous for its pearls [. He] attests that pearls were the most highly rated valuable in Roman society, and that those from the Gulf were specially praised [.] The pearl related finds at the site of El-Dur indicate the site was integrated into the maritime trade routes linking the Roman Empire, the Persian Empire, India and South Arabia'' (Carter). Book 6 holds a chapter that gives the first detailed account of the regions around the Gulf, including what are now Qatar, the Emirates and Oman. - Not only is it virtually the only work which describes the work of artists of the time, and has it become an important reference work for the history of art, due to the wide range of topics, the referencing system and index it became a model for later encyclopaedias. - Panels shaved, affecting the decoration, spine cracked on the hinges. With owner's manuscript ownership on title-page of the index, which is bound before text. A good copy. Bird 1910. USTC (2 copies). Not in Adams, BMC French, Durling, Hunt, Wellcome.

First edition of Irenaeus' main work "Adversus Haereses" (Against Heresies), the famous attack on Gnosticism, edited by Erasmus and finely printed by Froben in Basel.Irenaeus' work, written ca. 180, is a detailed attack on Gnosticism, which was then a serious threat to the Church, and especially on the system of the Gnostic Valentinus. As one of the first great Christian theologians, he emphasized the traditional elements in the Church, especially the episcopate, Scripture, and tradition. Against the Gnostics, who said that they possessed a secret oral tradition from Jesus himself, Irenaeus maintained that the bishops in different cities are known as far back as the Apostles-and none of them was a Gnostic-and that the bishops provided the only safe guide to the interpretation of Scripture. His writings, with those of Clement and Ignatius, are taken as among the earliest signs of the developing doctrine of the primacy of the Roman see. Irenaeus is the earliest witness to recognition of the canonical character of all four gospels.VD 16 I 316. - British Museum, Short-Title, German. 3623. e. 2.Ad CLEMENT. Scarce first (or second) edition of Clement's letter to the Corinthian Church with the comments and explanations by Rufinus, the well-known Church historian, born 344 or 345 in Julia Concordia, near Aeguieleia. Pope Clement I, also known as Saint Clement of Rome (Latin: Clemens Romanus), was pope from 92 to 99. Listed as Bishop of Rome from an early date, he is considered the first Apostolic Father of the Church.Clement's only genuine extant writing is his letter to the church at Corinth, in response to a dispute in which certain presbyters of the Corinthian church had been deposed. He asserted the authority of the presbyters as rulers of the church, on the grounds that the Apostles had appointed such. It was read in church, along with other epistles, some of which later became Christian canon; and is one of the oldest extant Christian documents outside the New Testament. This important work was the first to affirm the apostolic authority of the clergy.VD 16 C 4076. - British Museum, Short-Title, German. 3623. d. 5 (1)

Aurelii Augustini passim decerpta, semitam quanda[m] media[m] Christianis, nu[n]c misere dissentie[n]bus[!] mon[s]trantia, qua unanimiter ad ecclesiam Christi redeant. Deventer, Albert Paffraet, 1529. 8vo (16.5 x 10.5 cm). With the title in letterpress in a woodcut border and one woodcut initial. With a contemporary manuscript index (31 1/2 pp.) and contemporary manuscript notes (1 1/2 pp.) giving quotations from Saint Augustine on 16 leaves bound at the front. Contemporary blind-tooled brown calf over wooden boards (the back board replaced with paperboard), with a brass catch-plate in the middle of the fore-edge (clasp and anchor plate lacking and binding repaired).

      KVK & WorldCat (2 copies); NK 148 (2 copies); STCN (1 copy); USTC (4 copies, some no longer located); for the woodcut border: NAT V, 21. Rare first and only edition of a highly original selection of fragments from the works of Saint Augustine (354-430) assembled by an unknown humanist with the clear intention of defending the Catholic faith against the numerous kinds of reformers and heretics active in northern Europe in those days, and to bring back straying believers to the true faith. The compiler of this anthology, who dated his preface 23 March [1526?], has not been identified, but Albert Paffraet (d. 1553), the son of the more famous printer Richard Paffraet, published many books by contemporary humanists such as Erasmus, Murmellius, Reuchlin and Angelo Poliziano, including both pamphlets inspired by the ideas of the Reformation and defences of the traditional faith.With ower's inscriptions and stamps. With some small wormholes in the last few leaves, but otherwise in very good condition. The binding has been repaired, with a paper board replacing the back wooden board but covered by the original calf and the manuscript pastedown, three old patches on and near the spine (with the loss of the headbands) and the joints cracked. An interesting selection of fragments from the works of Saint Augustine.

        Opera Omnia

      Venice Aldine Press 1526. - Folio, (6), 233, (1) ff., the Aldine device on title and verso of last leaf, Greek type. Bound in eighteenth-century French mottled calf, gilt spine, brown morocco label. Title with some very slight marginal dustsoiling, else excellent. A fine and fresh copy of the editio princeps of the Hippocratic corpus, a collection of texts assembled in the third century B.C., including the Hippocratic Oath and many of the foundation texts of western medicine, traditionally attributed to the legendary physician and teacher Hippocrates of Cos. "It is uncertain which of them, if any, are directly connected with the historical physician Hippocrates of Cos, who flourished in the latter half of the fifth century B.C. Through the writings attributed to him Hippocrates is credited with developing the first system of empirical medicine based on clinical experience, and the Hippocratic Oath has long been regarded as expressing the fundamental ethical and moral standards of the medical profession" (Grolier, Medicine p. 3). The text was edited by Francesco Torresani, using a fifteenth-century manuscript now in Paris (BNF MS gr. 2141), with corrections provided by a second manuscript which belonged to Cardinal Bessarion (Venice, Bibliotheca Marciana MS gr. 269). This edition, comprising 59 works, includes some that were not included in the Latin translation by Marco Fabio Calvo published the previous year in Rome. "The Aldine Greek edition of Hippocrates marked a significant advance over Calvus’s Latin translation. As Franciscus Asulanus [Francesco Torresani] pointed out in his notice to the reader, it repaired a considerable number of accidental omissions and one long repetition that Calvus. made because he followed only one manuscript. Moreover, by presenting the original text, it laid the necessary foundation for all further philological and medical study of the corpus" (ibid).* Adams H-563; Durling 2316; Grolier, Medicine 1B; Stillwell 405 (with a detailed listing of contents) and 656; Norman 1077; Osler 142; Wellcome 3173.

        Hystoria Tripertita Habes candissime lector Hystoriam Tripertitam Cassiodori Senatoris viri Dei de regimine Ecclesie primitive; que antea quamplurimis scatebat erroribus adamussim emendatam, pristineque integritati restitutam

      (Lyon, Jacques Giunta), 1526. 8vo. (126 unnumbered leaves). Modern half vellum. 18.5 cm (Ref: Baudrier VI,122; not in Schweiger, nor Brunet, or Ebert.) (Details: Woodcut borders on title; title in red & black; Printer's device of Jacques Giunta, and a red Florentine 'fleur de lis' on title; numerous woodcut initials; the text is printed in 2 columns.) (Condition: Paper slightly browning; lower margin very slightly waterstained; occasional old ink underlinings and annotations) (Note: The 'Historia tripartita' by Cassiodorus (490-590), the celebrated founder of the Monasterium Vivariense, and one of the most important authors of his time, is a history of the church in 12 books, with excerpts from the church historians Theodoretus, Socrates and Sozomenus in Latin translation, in one volume 'in unum collecte' (sic.). Cassiodorus wanted to make in this manual their works known to the clergy in the West, who couldnot read Greek any longer. In the praefatio, written by Cassiodorus himself it says, the church historian Theodoretus is called Theodoricus twice. Cassiodorus tells the reader that Epiphanius Scholasticus translated the text of the 'Hystoria', and that he himself corrected faults of style, and diction, and arranged it into one continuous history. Epiphanius did so 'domino prestante'. This probably means that Cassiodorus helped Epiphanius. It seems that Epiphanius was an insubordinate of Cassiodorus, who was called by him 'master'. Epiphanius might have been a chaplain, an amanuensis, or a general assistant. (See Du Cange, Glossarium, s.v. Scholasticus). The NP says that Epiphanius translated 'im Auftrag des Cassiodorus griechische Werke ins Lateinischen, als wichtigste die Historia tripartita' (NP 3,1153). So Epiphanius helped his superior with the translation of Greek manuscripts into Latin. This was done to urge the clergy to classical and sacred studies. This manual of church history served the clergy throughout the Middle Ages well. Posterity can be harsh: 'The Historia Tripartita is a hasty composition, teeming with errors and contradictions, but nevertheless much used throughout the Middle Ages as a manual of history'. (Catholic Encyclopedia, s.v. Cassiodorus). The text was first published in 1472) (Collation: A-Q8 (leaf Q6 verso, leaves Q7 & Q8 blank) (Photographs on request)
