The original copper clasps are presented. The title pages of the first three works (by Erasmus) with identical architectural borders. Erasmus, Desiderius Ratio seu methodus compendio perveniendi ad veram theologiam. [Ratio verae theologiae.] Argentorati [Strasbourg]: Ioannes Knoblochus [Knobloch], October 1523. 80 leaves. [Bound with:] Erasmus, Desiderius Enchiridion militis Christiani, saluberrimis praeceptis refertum [?]. Argentorati [Strasbourg]: Ioannes Knoblochus [Knobloch], November 1524. 100 leaves.

[Bound with:] Gebwiler, Hieronymus Gravissimae sacrilegii, ac contemptae theosebiae ultionis, ethnicorum Hebraeorum et Christianorum verißimis comprobatae exemplis syngramma, [?]. Haguenau, [Wilhelm Seltz], 1528. [32] leaves (last blank). Three sixteenth-century, early Erasmus editions by Knobloch, bound together with Gebwiler's first edition that contains the earliest printed quote from Hortus deliciarum. Modus orandi Deum, the third work of this collection is considered as the centerpiece of Erasmus' teachings on prayer. The present, 1524 December edition is the second, after first edition by Froben in October of the same year. The book became very popular soon after it's publication and until the end of 1525 ten new impressions were produced by printers all over Europe. USTC lists only eight copies of this edition. (B.Er. I; Mynors 587; Bezzel 1285; Schmidt VII, 284; VD 16 E 3169; USTC 676366; EON 2424) The first work, Ratio seu methodus (October 1523) is also an early edition. Its editio princeps was issued in Leuven by Thierry Martens in November 1518. Scarce, USTC lists only four copies (Augsburg, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Neuchâtel), not in VD16. (USTC 709423; Muller no. Knobloch 395; Benzing no. 544) The second, Enchiridion militis Christiani, the Handbook of a Christian Knight is one of Erasmus' earliest writings, first printed in 1503. Prelims include all four Latin poems by Thomas More which first appeared in the 1520 Mainz ed. This edition is scarce as well, according to USTC only five copies could be found in institutional holdings. (VD 16 E 2774; USTC 650176) The final book of the compendia is Gravissimae sacrilegii, Jérôme (Hieronymus) Gebwiler's work. Gebwiler is renowned as the earliest scholar who described Hortus deliciarum (Bischoff, 1973, p. 13.) a manuscript of illuminated encyclopedia compiled by Herrad of Landsberg a twelfth-century nun and abbess of Hohenburg Abbey (Mont St Odile), which has been destroyed in 1870 during the siege of Strasbourg. In this book, Gebwiler quotes Hortus deliciarum's dedicatory poem which is attributed to Herrad or Relinda (Relindis), the previous abbess of Hohenburg (Griffiths, 2013, p. 231.).

Der Stand Bern trat als Folge der Berner Disputation (6.-26. Januar 1528) dem Reformierten Glauben bei. Die Durchsetzung von oben war aber wegen der Täuferbewegung, die auf eine radikalere Form der Lehre drängte und die katholische Bevölkerung des Berner Oberlandes sehr schwierig. Noch schwieriger wurde dies nach der Niederlage der Reformierten im zweiten Kappelerkrieg von 1531.

"Picard's bindings with solid tools for Grolier are celebrated for their increasingly complex and varied patterns of interlaced fillets. (...) Jean Picard was a binder of supreme talent (...)"

(Rücken erneuert, Fehlstellen in Deckelbezügen fachmännisch hinterlegt, Leder beschabt und rissig, Schnitt gebräunt und leicht fleckig, Marginalien von zeitgenössischer Hand auf den ersten Seiten, Eselsohren, vereinzelt leichter Feuchtigkeitsrand) Das letzte Blatt mit der Druckermarke fehlt, es wurde ersetzt durch ein hervorragendes Faksimile auf altem Papier, der Unterschied zum Original ist kaum festzustellen. Sonst ist das Buch vollständig.Editio princeps des Briefwechsels der Kirchenväter Basilius von Cäsarea und Gregor von Nazianz. \"Basilius von Caesarea (geb. um 330 in Caesarea, Kappadokien; gest. 1. Januar 379 ebenda) war schon zu Lebzeiten als Basilius der Große bekannt. Er war als Asket, Bischof und Kirchenlehrer eine der herausragenden Gestalten im Christentum des 4. Jahrhunderts und zählt zu den bedeutendsten Gestalten der Kirche überhaupt. Er, sein Bruder Gregor von Nyssa und ihr gemeinsamer Freund Gregor von Nazianz werden als die drei kappadokischen Kirchenväter bezeichnet. Zusammen mit Gregor von Nazianz und Johannes Chrysostomos ist er einer der drei heiligen Hierarchen.\"\"Gregor von Nazianz, auch Gregorius von Nazianzus, (geb. um 329 in Arianzos bei Nazianz (östl. von Aksaray) in Kappadokien; gest. 25. Januar 390 ebenda), war Bischof von Sasima (heute das Titularbistum Sasima) in Kappadokien, dem heutigen Çavdarli, kurzzeitig Metropolit von Konstantinopel und mit Basilius dem Großen und dessen Bruder Gregor von Nyssa einer der drei kappadokischen Väter, die auch als das kappadokische Dreigestirn bezeichnet werden. Alle drei prägten die Theologie des 4. Jahrhunderts mit der Ausarbeitung der Lehre von der Trinität entscheidend. Er ist einer der vier großen griechischen Kirchenlehrer der Alten Kirche und einer von nur drei Kirchenvätern, denen offiziell der Titel der Theologe verliehen wurde.\" (Wikipedia).Im Vorwort vom Herausgeber Vincentius Obsopoeus wird das Buch dem Humanisten Willibald Pirckheimer gewidmet, dessen Kreis Obsopoeus angehörte. Dieser (auch Opsopäus oder Obsopaeus geschrieben) stammte aus Bayern, war Sohn eines Koches, lebte seit 1528 in Nürnberg, seit 1529 in Ansbach und wurde 1548 Rector in Ansbach, wo er das Gymnasium gründete. Er hat zahlreiche Schriften zur Verbreitung von Luthers Lehren und scherzhafte lateinische Gedichte verfaßt, sowie mehrere griechische Schriftsteller ins Lateinische übertragen. (vgl. NDB nach der Onlinefassung).Der Drucker Johannes Setzer, auch Secerius, (geb. in Lauchheim, gest. 1532) ist als gelehrter Buchdrucker in Hagenau im Elsass von 1523 bis 1532 nachzuweisen. Er druckte fast ausschließlich Werke des Humanismus und der Reformation. (vgl. ADB).Auf dem Vorsatz finden sich zeitgenössische Marginalien in Latein und Griechisch, die wir nicht entziffern können, die Marginalien im Text sind von gleicher Hand. Deutlich zu lesen ist die Jahreszahl 1538 und der Besitzvermerk \"Gryphius\". Für den deutschen Barockdichter ist der Eintrag 100 Jahre zu früh, aber wir konnten für das 16. Jahrhundert Sebastian Gryphius als Drucker in Lyon nachweisen (der auch griechische Texte druckte) oder dessen gleichnamigen Neffen als Drucker in Venedig.VD16: B 688;- Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.

        De visus organo

      Tanagli. 4to; contemporary vellum; (8), 104 pp. Title-page printed in red and black. With an engraved illustration depicting the eye and 10 woodcut diagrams in the text. A very good copy.VERY RARE FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of one of the first scientific treatises on ophthalmology. As a physician Ruschi describes the structure and the functions of the human eye. As a physicist, he investigates the sight, dealing with issues related to optics, such as reflection and refraction. The work is divided into four books: De visus organo, De tunicis oculorum, De humoribus oculorum, De oculis partibus externi, and De oculi dignitate palaestra. Ruschi shows a deep knowledge of the topic, seems critical towards Aristotle and frequently cites the Arab authors, Kepler's work and other important treatises on optics of his time. Ruschi, the scion of a noble and wealthy family from Pisa, taught from 1528 to his death anatomy and philosophy at the University of Pisa. He was a friend and correspondent of Galileo, who praised him as a scientist.Wellcome, 5651; Krivatsy, 10064; Streiff Collection, p. 61; De Renzi, IV, p. 123..

        Dialogus Creaturarum Moralizatus

      Jan van Doesborch, Strasbourg 1528 - 4to, ff. 153 (of 164) (lacks *1, A2-3, B1-3, F and TT4). Gothic letter, more than 100 charming and clearly-impressed 1/3, 1/2 and 2/3 page woodcut illustrations, elaborate 8-line white-on-black woodcut initials, a few contemporary pencil drawings, copying motifs from the illustrations. 11 leaves reinforced at margin, marginal tear to first few leaves affecting last line on three, a few ink spots, marginal finger-soiling to a few leaves, light age yellowing throughout, a few leaves dusty. A good copy in 18th C half-calf with comb-patterned marbled paper boards, spine gilt in compartments with floral motif, red morocco lettering-piece. 19th C armorial bookplate of the Earl of Macclesfield on front pastedown, Shirburn Castle blind stamp to first two leaves. Early English language edition of this copiously illustrated quintessential book of fables, first printed in Gouda in 1480. Composed in Northern Italy in the late 14th C, the text is a collection of 123 illustrated fables divided into seven themes. Beginning with celestial bodies: Of Saturn and the clowde; the Evyn sterre; hevyn and erthe, it moves on the elements: ayre and the wynde; the se bankys and the see, gemstones and metals: Golde and Sylver; the precyows Topazyon, plants: the Mandrake and the defyios woman; the hyghe Cedre tre, aqueous creatures: the Dolphyn and the Ele; a fysshe or beaste callyd Sturgyon, birds: the owle that wolde hatte had lordeshippe ovyr all byrdes; the Solytari Pellican, and animals: the Tyrant Gryfon; the steere which was a good Cooke. In common with Aesop and Bidpai, each fable relates the interactions of the protagonists pointing to a concluding moral or lesson, charmingly rendered in verse for easy memorizing. The longevity and popularity of the Dialogus can be attributed primarily to Dutch printer Gerard Leeu, on whose editions both the text and the exceptional woodcuts of this edition are substantially based. While the name of the artist has fallen into obscurity, the iconographic influence of his illustrative cycle of the first edition is clearly apparent in these humorous cuts, which contain many of the same images, with a contemporary and naturalistic twist. A very attractive recreational reading book and a very rare example of popular illustrated English language text of such an early date. Rare on the market, the work is fascinating artistically and textually. STC 6815 recording only 5 copies in the UK, two imperfect, and only 5 in north America - one imperfect.

        De secretis libri XVII. ex variis authoribus collecti, methodicéque digesti, & aucti.Basel, Johannes Rudolphus Genath, 1662. 8vo. With woodcut device on title-page and numerous woodcut illustrations in text. Modern sheepskin parchment.

      - Krivatsy 12627; VD17 23:295006H; cf. Thorndike VI, pp. 215-216. 17th-century edition of a so called "book of secrets", compiled by de Swiss physician Johannes Jacob Wecker (1528-1586). The book opens with a dedicatory letter, followed by an extensive list of authors. The main work is, as the title suggests, divided into 17 "books", each devoted more or less to a different subject. Books of secrets were very popular among common people in the 16th and 17th century, however, this one by Wecker is said to be owned by most of the professional physicians as well. The work is not simply a pharmacopoeia, though it does include many medical recipes for specific ailments, for example to cure tooth-ache, coughing and bruises. It also includes more practical, everyday "secrets", on how to prevent trees from breaking or how to get rid of lice on the wall, and cosmetic recipes. These recipes are complemented by more occult passages, on how to light a candle underwater or how to change the white in children's eyes to black.With inscriptions on title-page, and underscoring and manuscript annotations in the margins throughout. Browned, but otherwise in very good condition.

        Sphaericorum libri tres, nunquam antehac graece excusi. Paris, André Wechel, 1558. 4to. With woodcut publisher's Pegasus device on title-page (repeated on last page), numerous woodcut mathematical diagrams in text, woodcut headpieces and decorated initials. 18th-century tanned sheepskin, gold-tooled spine and board edges.

      Adams T-548; Houzeau-Lancaster 846; USTC 152561; DSB XIII, pp. 319-320. First bilingual edition of the oldest treatise on spherical geometry, providing the first edition of the original Greek and the first Latin edition to be translated directly from the Greek. It was composed by the Greek mathematician and astronomer Theodosius, perhaps around the year 100 BC, and edited by Jean Péna (1528?-1558?), mathematician at the Collège Royale. The Greek text and very extensive notes, also in Greek, occupy the first half of the book, while the Latin translation of both text and notes (and repeating the woodcut diagrams) occupies the second half. The first two Latin editions (Venice 1518 and Vienna 1529) were translated from Arabic translations of the Greek, so the present book was a watershed in the development of Greek scholarship. Since spherical geometry was essential to the development of astronomy, it also set the stage for the Renaissance revolution set in motion by Copernicus, Gallileo and others. On top of that it was a monument to the golden age of French typography. With early owner's inscription on title-page. In very good condition. Although binding shows some surface damage, cracks in the hinges and restorations, it remains structurally sound.

      Krivatsy 12627. 17th century edition of a so called "book of secrets", compiled by de Swiss physician Johannes Jacob Wecker (1528-1586). After the introduction a list of authors is given whose works Wecker used. Among the authors are many esteemed Arab authors, including Avicenna (Ibn Sina), Mesue (Masawaih al-Mardini), Rhasis (Razi), and Serapion the younger. Also mentioned are Valerius Cordus, Dioscorides, Fuchs, Galen, Hippocrates (Boqrat) and many more. After each secret is told from which source it derives."Publication of the literature of secrets, medicinal and otherwise, received a great impulse from the appearance in 1555 or 1557 of the Secrets of Alessio of Piedmont..." (Thorndike), which went through 56 editions in different languages in the 16th century only. Wecker, who translated Piedmont's Secrets into German and Latin, possibly got inspired to make a book of secrets himself. Books of secrets were very popular among common people (i.e. non-professionals) in the 16th and 17th century. This one by Wecker however, is said to be owned by most of the professional physicians as well. The work is not simply a pharmacopoeia, though it does include many medical recipes for specific ailments, for example to cure tooth-ache, coughing and bruises. It also includes more practical, everyday "secrets", on how to prevent trees from breaking or how to get rid of lice on the wall, and cosmetic recipes, for hair dye or "water that makes the face looks young", or gets rid of pimples. These recipes are complemented by more occult passages, on how to light a candle underwater or how to change the white in children's eyes to black.With inscriptions on title-page, and underscoring and manuscript annotations in the margins throughout.

        L’Ultima Cena

      1528 - Xilografia, datata e monogrammata in tavola in basso a sinistra. Da un soggetto di Leonardo. Ottima prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva con filigrana "scudo con mezzaluna", rifilata alla linea marginale, leggere tracce di inchiostro antico, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Le notizie su Guido Ruggieri o Ruggeri sono piuttosto confuse. Di lui si sa che è attivo a Fontainebleau tra il 1525 ed il 1531 alle dipendenze di Francesco Primaticcio. Il problema nasce con la confusione tra i vari artisti che lavoravano nel castello in quel periodo e con la traduzione a stampa delle opere del Primaticcio e Rosso Fiorentino. La Biasini, nel saggio Le incisioni del Maestro FG italiano, collega Guido Ruggeri al monogramma FG che invece altri attribuiscono a Girolamo Fagiuoli o al francese Francois Gentil. Il Malvasia lo descrive come allievo sia come pittore che come orafo ed incisore di Francesco Francia. Bartsch ne descrive una stampa a bulino dal Primaticcio (B. vol. 15, pag. 415, 1); Nagler contribuisce solo alla confusione accorpando la descrizione ad altri artisti operanti a Fontainebleau incluso Giorgio Ghisi, mentre il Passavant non la descrive tra le opere di traduzione da Leonardo da Vinci. Altro aspetto misterioso dell’opera è il mezzo usato per la traduzione del soggetto, che solitamente avveniva tramite l’uso del bulino. Rarissima opera del Ruggieri, sconosciuta ai repertori.

        Signed letter addressed to Ottavio Farnese, Duke of Parma].Prague, 15 April 1581. Folio (32.5 x 21 cm). Signed letter written in brown ink on paper, with a large seal on a diamond-shaped slip of paper over red sealing wax with the Imperial coat of arms encircled by an inscription.

      - Letter in Spanish by Maria of Austria, also called Maria of Spain (1528-1603), daughter of the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V and Isabella of Portugal, Empress as the wife of the Emperor Maximilian II and at the date of the present letter mother of the Emperor Rudolf II. It is addressed to the Italian Duke of Parma, Ottavio Farnese (1521-1586), responding to the news he had sent from Marquis Pier Francesco Malaspina (ca. 1540?-1624) in Piacenza, who had married into the Farnese family in 1564. Farnese had passed on Malaspina's letter about his ill health. Maria was relieved that Malaspina was at least able to write. He apparently made a full recovery, for he was to live another 43 years. The Duke's wife was Maria's illegitimate half-sister Margaret of Austria (1522-1586), and the present letter opens with the warm salutation, "Ilh[ustre] Duque n[uest]ro charo y amado amygo" and is signed "Maria", and below to the right of the seal signed, "Herz[og] de Marnelo"[?].The letter was folded for delivery, with the address on the outside. It also has 3 later horizontal folds. With a light stain running into the address, but not the main text, and with some wear and tear to the seal, otherwise in very good condition, and mostly untrimmed. A letter from Maria of Austria to the Duke of Parma, with the Imperial seal, showing the close personal relations between them and their mutual relative the Marquis Malaspina.

He taught at the Universities of Bologna, Perugia, Pisa, Florence, Padua, Pavia and Piacenza. He also served occasionally as a judge and diplomat. His fame rests on his commentaries on Roman and canon law, which were standard texts into the seventeenth century. Originally published in the fifteenth century, the Lectura is a commentary on the Books 1-24, Title 2 of the Digest, a critical edition of writings by Gaius, Ulpian, Papinian and 36 other eminent jurisconsults organized by topic. Along with the Institutes, Code and Novels, the Digest is one of the writings known collectively as the Corpus Juris Civilis. Its subsequent influence on European jurisprudence is difficult to overestimate.

Obra dividida em 17 livros, que descreve as partes do corpo humano sendo os três primeiros livros dedicados aos membros anteriores e posteriores, os IVº e Vº aos órgãos da digestão e evacuação, os VIº e VIIº aos órgãos contidos no tórax, os VIIIº a XIIº aos órgãos da cabeça e pescoço, o XIIIº descreve os nervos do tórax e pescoço e as vertebras, os XIVª e XVº tratam dos órgãos de reprodução e da formação e estrutura do feto, o XVIº das veias, artérias e nervos e o XVIIº recapitula os livros anteriores e expõe as ideias do autor respeitantes às proporções das diferentes partes do corpo em relação umas às outras e ao universo, citando muitos poetas e escritores do mundo clássico. Cláudio Galeno de Pérgamo (129-216) foi juntamente com Hipócrates um dos maiores médicos do mundo clássico e a sua influência dominou os conhecimentos médicos até ao Século XVIII. Foi autor de uma vasta obra escrita em grego, que chegou até aos nossos dias, em parte no original grego e em parte em traduções latinas antigas. Trata-se de uma suma enciclopédica que não se limita aos vários ramos da medicina mas que a estuda contextualizada com os conhecimentos de outras áreas do saber como a filosofia, as matemáticas, a arquitectura, a filologia e a literatura. Durante a idade média foi menos conhecido na Europa, mas as suas obras continuaram a ser lidas e divulgadas em Bizâncio e traduzidas pelos cientistas árabes. O maior conhecimento da obra de Galeno a partir do Renascimento impulsionou o desenvolvimento da medicina, pois o médico grego dava grande importância à experimentação e ao estudo da anatomia.

        Artis veterinariae, sive mulomedicinae libri quatuor V, jam primum typis in lucem aediti. Opus sane in rebus medicis minime aspernandum.

      Basel: Johann Faber of Emmich, 1528. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to (200 x 145 mm). [8] 72 ff. Signatures: [a]-b4 A-S4, 80 leaves. Italic letter with Roman headings. Title within a woodcut border made up of 4 blocks; woodcut initials. [Colophon:] Basileae. Anno. M. D. XXVIII. Excudebat Joannes Faber Emmeus Juliacensis. 18th-century calf-backed boards (spine a bit damaged by worming), marbled pastedowns. Some gatherings of text unevenly browned, lower margin a bit stained towards end. ----Schweiger II, 1123-24; VDI6 V468; Adams V341; NLM/Durling 4563; Wellcome 6524. - FIRST EDITION of the first published monograph on veterinary medicine. In addition to practical advice Vegatius Renatus stressed the economic benefits of good veterinary practice."A German translation was published in 1532, and two further Latin editions in 1574 and 1781, respectively. The first work of the Christian era entirely devoted to veterinary medicine and the first monograph on the subject to be printed. Publius Vegetius Renatus was a Roman man of letters who flourished about 450-500 AD. He is not to confused with Flavius Vegetius Renatus, a soldier and author of the famous military textbook. Nor was he a horse trader and farrier as is often stated. Publius Vegetius had travelled widely and set out to restore veterinary medicine to the position it held in ancient Greece and to counter the public indifference to the profession. He stresses the economic benefits of veterinary medicine and says that good hygiene is important as it is better to preserve the health of horses and cattle than to try to restore it. He says that he has consulted contemporary veterinarians as well as physicians. Frederick Smith gives a full analysis of the text in his unpublished The history of veterinary medicine (1900, pp. 20-30). Having said in his section on Vegetius that his work, which he calls 'epoch making', was 'the first veterinary work ever printed', he later corrects this in a footnote (p. 42), saying that veterinary science was treated by Ruffus in a book printed at Venice in 1492 and also that Moulé refers to 14th and 15th-century works printed as early as 1486 and others in 1494 and 1495. None-the-less it seems safe to say that this is the first printed monograph on veterinary science. Frederick Smith, The history of veterinary medicine (1900), unpublished proof, Cambridge University Library, Syn 4.91.36." (R. Gaskell, Books from the Library of Walter Pagel, Pt. I, 127). Very Good.

        Codicis Theodosiani libri XVI quibus sunt ipsorum principum autoritate adjectae novellae

      Bâle, Henricus Petrus, 1528. ____ Edition princeps du Code Théodosien. Seuls des extraits avaient été publiés auparavant dans le 'Breviarium Alaricianum'. Le Code Théodosien, rédigé au Ve siècle, a joué un rôle considérable. En Orient, il fut remplacé moins d'un siècle après par le code Justinien. Il resta en vigueur pendant plusieurs siècles en Occident. Durant le Moyen Age, le Code Théodosien fut connu sous une forme abrégée. Au XVIème siècle, les juristes occidentaux travaillèrent à restituer et à commenter la version d'origine. Cette première édition a été préparée par Jean Sichard, professeur de droit à Tubingen. Brunet V, 789 donne fautivement une édition d'Anvers, 1517, comme la première du Code Théodosien : il s'agit seulement d'une somme du 'Breviarium d'Alaricianum' et le titre qu'il annonce est faux. (cf. Giraud, Histoire du droit romain, p. 387). Relié avec : CHANSONNETTE, Claude [CANTIUNCULA]. Topica Claudii Cantiunculae jurisconsulti, in Basiliensi Academia legum professoris. Basle, Andreas Cratander, 1520. In-folio de (8), 127, (1) pp. Très beau titre dans un encadrement de gravures sur bois et un autre encadrement gravé sur le feuillet B1. Première édition du premier ouvrage de cet important juriconsulte messin. La renommée de Claude Chansonette (Metz, 1490 - 1549) est liée à sa contribution aux débuts de l'humanisme juridique dans l'Empire. "Sans rejeter radicalement les acquis de la méthode italienne, Chansonnette plaide, dans la ligne d'autres humanistes de son époque, pour une méthode d'avantage fondée directement sur un bon entendement philologique et historique des sources du droit romain. ... Ses 'Topica' (...) illustrent comment Chansonnette a opéré comme une charnière entre la méthode traditionnelle et celle influencée par le programme humaniste." (A. Wijffels, in Dictionnaire des juristes français 179.) Belle reliure française de l'époque (quelques restaurations). ***** 1) THEODOSE. Editio princep. Edited by Joannes Sichardus. Only excerpts were published previously in the 'Breviarium Alaricianum'. The Theodosian Code, written in the fifth century, played a considerable role. In the East, it was replaced less than a century after by the Justinian code. He remained in used for several centuries in the West. During the Middle Ages, the Theodosian Code was known in abbreviated form. In the sixteenth century, Western lawyers worked to restore and comment the original version. 2) CHANSONNETTE. First edition of the first book of this important jurisconsult from Metz. The fame of Claude Chansonette (1490 - 1549) is related to its contribution to the beginnings of legal humanism in the Empire. Very fine contemporary French binding (with some restorations). In-folio. Collation : (6), 178 ff. Veau brun, dos à nerfs orné, fer doré sur les plats. (Reliure de l'époque.).
