PTOLEMAEUS, CLAUDIUS. [PTOLEMY]
Venice: Lucantonio Giunta, 1528. First edition. 1528 FIRST EDITION of the first Latin translation from the original Greek text of one of the world's most influential scientific texts. "Claudius Ptolemy's great contribution to astronomy was his famous work the Almagest, which presented formally the astronomical theories of the day that had evolved from the great debates within the different Greek philosophical schools... Ptolemy did not claim that his cosmological model described the actual conditions. It simply reproduced geometrically the observed motions of the known heavenly bodies and enabled their positions to be easily predicted for any particular time... Ironically, even when Copernicus' heliocentric theory had replaced the Ptolemaic system, many astronomers used Ptolemy's model to predict the motion of the planets, since its intricate calculations produced more accurate values" (David H. Clark; Matthew D. H. Clark, Measuring the Cosmos). The Almagest, written in about 150 AD, "served as the basic guide for Islamic and European astronomers until about the beginning of the 17th century. Its original name was Mathematike Syntaxis ("The Mathematical Arrangement"); Almagest arose as an Arabic corruption of the Greek word for greatest (megiste). It was translated into Arabic about 827 and then from Arabic to Latin in the last half of the 12th century. Subsequently, the Greek text circulated widely in Europe, although the Latin translations from Arabic continued to be more influential.

"The Almagest is divided into 13 books. Book 1 gives arguments for a geocentric, spheri … [Click Below for Full Description]

OVIDIUS NASO, Publius (OVID).
Adams O494 (ad 2 only); Baudrier VIII, p. 216 (ads 2 & 3 only). Lovely little set of Gryphius's rare 16mo Ovid editions, printed as a matching series containing 5 works, here in matching 16th-century Lyonese bindings. It includes his two most famous works, the Metamorphoses and the Ars Amatoria, each in a volume of its own, with the Fasti published together with two smaller works: the Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto.The present set of Ovid's works in 3 volumes is the only example located of bindings made for the Dutch lawyer and statesman Johannus Mepschius or de Mepsche (1528-1585), president of the Court in Groningen. The owner's signature "I. Six" on the title-page of volume three indicates that this set somehow descended to Jan Six (1618-1700), friend and patron of Rembrandt and the subject of one of his finest portraits (still in the Six collection at Amsterdam). In very good condition, with only some marginal holes in the last 4 quires of volume 3 (not affecting the text) and a small unobtrusive stain on the title-page of vol. 1. Bindings with a few small chips and minor cracks and stains, and only traces of the ties, but still in good condition. A very rare complete set of Gryphius's miniature Ovid, bound in Lyon for a Groningen statesman in the 16th century.

Scribonius Largus ( Scribonio Largo ), Andrea Turini, Jean Fernel ( Fernelius )
Simon Silvius ( Du Bois ), 1528. [10], 31, [5] leaves ; in-folio; full leather binding with gold ornaments and raised bands on the spine. First, very rare, edition of the only book by Emperor Claudius' famed physician, Scribonius. It contains the first reference to the Hippocratic Oath and mentions many remedies used for the most various sanitary purposes by members of the imperial family. Very interesting are the three different recipes for toothpaste (vinegar, honey, radish and salt are used, but also fine grains of glass) and the extensive use of opium in a wide range of drugs, from eyesalve to nasal polyps treatments (a section about opium poisoning is also present). Another prominent ingredient found in many medicaments is wine, and particularly the famed "Falernum" variety. Other curious insights at the Roman-era medicine show a rigorous scientific approach, with some occasional concessions to popular beliefs and to magical and fantastical remedies (like the purificatory rite of drinking one's own blood). Very broad in scope, it covers many diseases and a lot of tested cures, making it one of the most important medicine treatise of his era, along with Celsus' De re medicina and the 'Hippocratic collection'. "Scribonius was the first to describe accurately the preparation of true opium, and the first to reccomend electrotherapy (as provided by live torpedo-fish) for headaches and other nervous afflictions. He was also the earliest known author to mention the Hippocratic oath" (Norman) Norman 429, Adams C-1243, DSB GM 1984.1, Garrison-Morton 1785 Bound with Fernel's "De … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERNEL Jean
1528. Folio (295 x 200mm.) ff. [4], 24., title within a fine strap work border, marginal diagrams, modern calf-backed paper boards Paris: Simon de Colines, First edition - a fine large copy. This ?is one of the best of the sixteenth-century treatises on the mediaeval proportion. It follows the Boethian treatment, as seen also in the work of Bradwardin? (Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 157).?Fernel(1497-1558), before making a name for himself in medicine, was first attracted by the mathematical sciences, as evidenced by his first three publications -- of which this is the third, and all three of which were issued by Simon de Colines: De Proportionibus was preceded by Monalosphaerium, 1527 (see lot 103), and Cosmotheoria,1528 (see lot 104). Fernel received his M.D. degree in 1530 and became a very influential physician through his numerous writings; he became physician to Catherine de Médicis, whose sterility he cured, and eventually was appointed chief physician to King Henri II?

(segnatura: A-O4, P6, S4), testo su due colonne in carattere corsivo. Frontespizio con bella cornice figurata, composta da quattro blocchi, con putti e motivi floreali, in silografia. Al verso dell'ultima carta grande marca tipografica con un ippogrifo, entro cornice arricchita di fregi silografici. Dedica di Tizzone Gaetano al Signor Pirro di Gonzaga. "Terza edizione, assai rara" (la prima è di Ferrara, 1475 - la seconda, sempre del XV secolo, senza luogo e nome stampatore. v. Gamba,217). La Teseida è un "poema in 12 libri, in ottava rima, scritto nel 1339-1340, verso la fine del soggiorno napoletano dell'autore. Dalla lettera dedicatoria che precede il poema appare ch'esso fu composto su istanza di Fiammetta, la gentildonna amata dal Boccaccio, e nelle peripezie dell'amorosa vicenda che costituisce l'argomento, il Boccaccio ha poeticamente trascritto le varie vicende, prima liete e poi tristi, dei suoi amorosi rappporti con madonna Fiammetta. L'argomento del poema è tratto da un rifacimento medievale della "Tebaide" di Stazio, dal "Roman de Thebes" e dal notissimo "Roman de la Rose"". Così Diz. delle opere Bompiani,VII, p. 398. Cfr.

Opera astronomica del secondo secolo (Cl. Ptolomaeus, circa 100 -170 d. C.), tra le fondamentali per lo sviluppo delle conoscenze umane. "I metodi matematici e geometrici usati per questa opera la fecero preferire alle simili di quel tempo e le fecero presto acquistare ampia diffusione.. L'Almagesto costituisce il primo e più completo trattato di astronomia della storia..; rappresenta l'insieme di tutte le cognizioni astronomiche di quel tempo e offre le migliori ipotesi che, pima di Copernico, servirono a spiegare i moti e a fissare e predire le posizioni degli astri in cielo" (Diz.

(In fine:) Impressa in Vinegia per me Girolamo Pentio da Lecco a 7 di marzo 1528. in-4, ff. 66 n.n. (segn.: A-O4, P6, S4), testo in carattere corsivo su due colonne; leg. primo '800 in mezza pelle verde, tassello e fregi oro al dorso. Frontespizio figurato con bella cornice silografica in quattro blocchi con motivi floreali e putti, assai elaborata e decorativa. In fine grande impresa dello stampatore, già di Jacopo Pencio, con Pegaso entro cornice di mm 82x70, arricchita di fregi silografici (non riscontrata dai comuni repertori). Terza edizione (prima Ferrara 1475, seconda Napoli ca. 1490) della Teseida, poema in dodici libri in ottave, composto tra il 1339 e 1441, nel quale Boccaccio si propose di rinnovare in volgare il genere epico. L'opera è preceduta da una dedica del Boccaccio di tre pagine in prosa a Fiammetta. L'edizione è arricchita da una dedica di Tizzone Gaetano al signor Pirro di Gonzaga. Tizzone fu un noto ed operoso collaboratore culturale dell'editoria veneziana cinquecentesca, che nel 1524 approntò l'edizione dell'Elegia di Madonna Fiammetta e curò, negli anni successivi, le Stanze del Poliziano, il Filocolo e la Teseida appunto, ove appare costante la sua preoccupazione di restituire i testi al loro aspetto originario. Assai rara (censita in sole 16 biblioteche italiane). Bell'esempl. (tracce di polvere sul primo e ultimo foglio). Gamba 218: ''Rarissima''. Bacchi della Lega 126. Mostra di manoscritti, documenti e edizioni, Firenze 1975, 74. Adams-B 2186. STC 111. Essling II/2, p. 655. Sander 1095. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
