Bound in full tooled pigskin with original clasps. Minor soiling and wear to binding, Overall, very good better. A very collectible copy of a Froben edition of Tertullian who was the first and arguably one of the most important early Christian apologists. ______________ Tertullian (full name Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus; c. 155 - c. 240 AD) was a prolific early Christian author from Carthage in the Roman province of Africa. Of Berber origin, he was the first Christian author to produce an extensive corpus of Latin Christian literature. He also was an early Christian apologist and a polemicist against heresy, including contemporary Christian Gnosticism. Tertullian has been called "the father of Latin Christianity" and "the founder of Western theology." Though conservative in his worldview, Tertullian originated new theological concepts and advanced the development of early Church doctrine. He is perhaps most famous for being the first writer in Latin known to use the term trinity (Latin: trinitas). According to The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, "Tertullian's trinity [is] not a triune God, but rather a triad or group of three, with God as the founding member". A similar word had been used earlier in Greek,[a] though Tertullian gives the oldest extant use of the terminology as later incorporated into the Nicene Creed at the Second Ecumenical Council, the First Council of Constantinople in 381 AD, … [Click Below for Full Description]

LYRA, Nicholas de
1528 BIBLE & Medieval Commentary Nicholas de Lyra Psalms Proverbs Job HUGE FOLIO Nicholas of Lyra was a 13th-century Franciscan monk who was perhaps the most influential exegetical writer of the Middle Ages.

In 1520, Nicholas de Lyra’s complete Bible commentary was published by Jacob Mareschal. It was reissued in 1528 in six enormous tomes!

"Michael Puff (1400-73) of Schrick, a little village in Austria, was a teacher at Vienna University [...] Often printed during the 15th and 16th centurys; all these editions are rare" (Duveen). Die älteste erhaltene Handschrift datiert von 1463 (Solothurn ZB, cod. S 386, 132r-136v); es erschienen nicht weniger als 31 Inkunabeldrucke (GW M43671 ff.) sowie zwischen 1502 und 1601 12 weitere Ausgaben, die das Werk endgültig zu einer der weitestverbreiteten Schriften über Destillation machten: über "30 Auflagen nach dem Tode des Verfassers, eine in der Geschichte der Wiener medicinischen Schule einzig dastehende Thatsache" (Senfelder, der noch nicht alle bis heute bekannt gewordenen Ausgaben kannte). Auch in die Schriften späterer Autoren wie Brunschwig und Hieronymus Bock fand das Werk Aufnahme. "Zweifellos behauptete es sich bis weit ins 17.

THEODOSIUS.
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 the owner's inscription of the magistrate and engineer Thomas de Scorbiac (1614-1690). In very good condition. Although binding shows some surface damage, cracks in the hinges and restorations, it remains structurally sound.. In very good condition.

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).

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.

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?

BOCCACCIO Giovanni
per me Girolamo Pentio da Lecco, 1528. In-8 p. (mm. 208x147), bellissima legat. ottocentesca con elaborata decorazione oro ai piatti, dorso a cordoni con filetti e tit. oro, 66 cc.nn. (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. Gamba,218: "Assai rara" - Adams,2186, p. 174 - Short-Title Cat. British Library, p. 111 - Essling,II/2, p. 655 - Sander,I,1095.

PTOLEMAEUS Claudius
Giunta Luc' Ant, 1528. in-folio, ff. (6), 143, (1 bianco), pregevole legatura del primo settecento in cartone decorato a fiori, tit. ms. al dorso, tagli azzurri. Titolo impresso in rosso e nero, impresa tipogr. in rosso, iniziali silogr. ornate, un gran numero di figure e diagrammi astronomici in silografia nei margini.

Nuova traduzione in latino, fatta direttamente dal greco, per volere di Nicola V, da Georgio di Trebisonda, dotto studioso di Creta venuto in Italia agli inizi del XV secolo. 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. Bompiani, Opere I, p. 92). Bell'esemplare, fresco e marginoso (nel bianco del titolo abile piccolo restauro e lieve alone).

THUCYDIDES
venundantur Ioanni Parvo and Iodoco Badio ascensio, 1528. Cm. 33,5,cc. (8) xcvi. Con magnifico frontespizio xilografico e numerosi bellissimi capilettera. Legatura antica in piena pergamena rigida. Antiche annotazioni di possesso al frontespizio; macchietta al margine superiore di alcune carte iniziali e finali, aloni sparsi perlopiù lievi e marginali, peraltro nel complesso buon esemplare. Tucidide (460 a.C. ca. - dopo il 399 a.C.), storico ateniese, fu anche militare e filosofo politico. La Guerra del Peloponneso è considerato il suo capolavoro storiografico. L'Autore descrive, con criteri storiografici rigorosi per l'epoca, un minuzioso resoconto della guerra tra Sparta e Atene intercorsa tra il 431 e il 404 a.C., nonché la descrizione della sventurata spedizione ateniese in Sicilia del 415 a.C. che portò alla distruzione della flotta a Siracusa. La traduzione latina si deve al grande umanista romano Lorenzo Valla (1407-1457). Rara e prestigiosa edizione parigina (Jean Petit) sconosciuta a Brunet e Graesse. Cfr. Kvk..
