        Opus de re medica, nunc primum integratum latinitate donatum, per Joannem Guinterium Andernacum.

      Paris, Simon de Colines 1532 - In-folio [335 x 217 mm]. Collation : (40), 47, (9), 39, (9), 127, (9), 48, (8), 24, (8), 83, (9), 158 pp., 1 f. bl. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure du XVIIIe.) Première édition de la traduction de Johannes Guinterius (Guinter von Andernach), le professeur de Vésale. Le "De Re medica", divisé en 7 livres, traite d'hygiène, de diététique, de pathologie, des maladies de la tête, de la lèpre, des maladies de la peau, des poisons, de pharmacologie et de chirurgie. Le plus grand médecin de l'époque byzantine était aussi un remarquable chirurgien. Son ouvrage est le meilleur manuel de médecine opératoire de l'Antiquité. Paul d'Aegine y enseigne plusieurs méthodes d'opération de la face, ce qui en fait un des premiers livres de chirurgie plastique. "The extreme practicality of the text and its consequent use doubtless accounts for its rarity today. Its section on surgery, Book VI, has been called the principal medical work of the Byzantine era." Stillwell 473. Cet ouvrage n'avait été jusqu'ici publié qu'en grec par Alde Manuce. Il a été publié la même année à Basle, dans une traduction d' Alban Thorer. Belle marque d'imprimeur sur le titre. Schreiber, S. de Colines 89 : "The first to publish a complete translation was therefore Johannes Guinterius, who . states that he used three Greek texts : the Aldine princeps, an ancient manuscript belonging to Janus Lascaris and a "codex of marvelous antiquity" belonging to Jean Ruel." Coins et coiffes usés. Petit trou de ver traversant tout le volume, un autre trou de ver avec perte d'une ou deux lettres sur les premiers 18 feuillets et qui se poursuit dans la marge. Durling 3551.

        Herbarium Vivae Eicones ad naturae imitationem ...

      1532. Strassburg, J. Schott, 1532. [with:] Novi Herbarii Tomvs II. Strassburg, J. Schott, 1536. Folio (320 x 205mm). pp. (viii), 266, (66, including final blank); pp. 313, 5, (1, blank), title of first volume in woodcut border, full page woodcut coat of arms of Strassburg, 4 woodcut ornamental borders, and 138 woodcuts of plants, mostly full page. Contemporary limp vellum, old lettering on spine. A very fine Large Paper copy, much larger than copies we have had or seen. Both volumes in the second edition. The first edition of the first volume is exceedingly rare. "A genuine milestone in the history of the botanical sciences.. " (Tomasi & Willis. An Oak Spring Herbaria p. 31). "This is an important book. Brunfels was the first great mind in modern botany and as Sachs says, a new epoch of natural science began with Brunfels...."(Hunt 30). A celebrated herbal which marks an epoch in the history of botanic illustration. It was the first herbal illustrated with drawings which are throughout both beautiful and true to nature. The plants are represented as they are in the greatest possible artistic perfection by Weiditz, one of the best German illustrators, whose name appears in the book. "Weiditz accepted Nature as he found her. Was a leaf torn or drooping, a flower withered?- he observed the fact with the cold eye of the realist and recorded it with the precision of a true craftsman. The beauty was never wantonly sacrificed to mere scientific accuracy; the poet in him always triumphed, the artist in him always prevailed. His work must ever remain the high-water mark of woodcutting employed in the service of botanical illustration" (Blunt p. 47). Posthumously a third volume was published in 1536 by Michael Herr, which is seldon found with the first two volumes, and which was illustrated by an other artist. Nissen BBI, 257, 1b & 257, 2b; Hunt 30..

        Institutionum Geometricarum

      Paris: Christian Wechel, 1532. First Latin edition of Dürer&#146;s first book on the theory of art, the Unterweisung der Messung, bound with the first Latin edition of his treatise on fortification, &#147;strictly speaking the first treatise dealing exclusively with this subject&#148; (Krufft), with important material on urban planning and utopianism.1) Illustrated by Dürer himself, the Institutionum Geometricarum outlines the artist&#146;s theory of &#147;the work of art as a natural object&#148;, which became an accepted aesthetic dogma until the 19th century. Far more than the German original of 1525, this translation by the humanist Camerarius brought the treatise to the attention of the whole of Europe. As a theoretical statement by &#147;the last major painter to be counted a significant geometer&#148; (Kemp), the work is naturally of interest for applications in Dürer&#146;s own oeuvre as well as for the history of perspective. After his encounter with Luca Pacioli in Italy, Dürer became convinced of how close the links are between art and mathematics and devoted himself to the study of form through the resources offered by arithmetic and geometry. The result was the present work. In this work Dürer teaches the principles of perspective and explains the application of practical geometry to drawing and painting. It became a very influential text as its audience broadened from artists to architects, sculptors, and different craftsmen and was translated and reprinted several times.Panofsky describes the treatise&#146;s importance as three-fold: for the technical innovation in the construction of a perspective apparatus in which the eye of the observer is dispensed with entirely; for being the first literary document &#147;in which a strictly representational problem received a strictly scientific treatment at the hands of a Northerner&#148;; and for emphasizing that &#147;perspective is not a technical discipline destined to remain subsidiary to painting or architecture, but an important branch of mathematics, capable of being developed into what is now known as general projective geometry&#148; (Panofsky, p. 252).Book Three contains Dürer&#146;s famous treatise on the just shaping of Roman capital letters and gothic or &#145;Textur&#146; letters built up by means of small geometrical forms, a method original with Dürer. (This text was translated into English by R.T. Nichol for publication by the Grolier Club, Of the Just Shaping of Letters, New York, 1917.)2) Inspired by the artist&#146;s witnessing the siege of Hohenasperg in 1519 and by fear of the advancing Turkish armies, Krufft writes, De Urbibus &#147;employs a dual approach. On the one hand Dürer develops various alternatives for the construction of bastions to defend existing cities; this is the contemporary aspect. At the heart of the treatise, he outlines a utopian city, in which the nature of fortification merely serves as a spur to the depiction of a social structure organized on the ground... Related trades are placed side by side; smiths are to be housed near foundries, etc. The town hall and the houses of the nobility are sited near the royal palace. The whole system of organization is hierarchical and functional. Dürer thinks of every function of the city, right down to the taverns&#148; (Krufft, History of Architectural Theory, p. 110 ). Elsewhere Krufft suggests that Serlio employed the present treatise in book VI.According to Mortimer, the woodblocks are close copies of the 1527 German original.* 1)Mortimer, French I.182; Vagnetti E II.b7; Panofsky, The Life and Art of Albrecht Dürer, Chapter 8, &#147;Dürer as a theorist of Art&#148;, esp. 247-60; Kemp, The Science of Art, 53ff.; 2) Mortimer, French I.184; Fowler 113 (1527 German); Krufft, History of Architectural Theory, 110-111..

Bound in 18th-century calf over boards, spine with raised bands re-backed, later red morocco title label. Title dusty; occasional toning; small wormtrack through much of volume, generally in blank margin but occasionally grazing a partial letter or printed border on plates. Withal a fresh copy, very good.[Bound with:]DÜRER, Albrecht. De Urbibus, Arcibus, castellisque condendis, ac muniendis rationes aliquot, praesenti bellorum necessitati accomodatissimae ...

        Pausaniou Tes Hellados periegesis and Pausaniæ Graeciae descriptio accurata

      An indispensable guide to southern and central Greece in the 2nd century and the most important surviving classical work on early Greek religious practices, art, and architecture with authoritative treatments of the Apollo sanctuary at Delphi (60 pages in Book X), and the Zeus shrine at Olympia (110 pages of the Elis books), and with crucial detail on hundreds of sites and locales. "Pausanias is the only known reliable source on many aspects of early Greek history". (Habicht, p. 28) "Like Herodotus, Pausanias was a mine of ethnographic information about the classical world." (Ackerman, p. 128) "But the value of Pausanias to archaeologists and to all classical scholars is unique and astonishing" (Levi, p. 1). By general acclaim, the Kühn remained the most valued critical Greek text until well into the 19th century. Winckelmann used Kühn (Kochs) and Brunet states, "edition belle es très-correcte" (p. 454). EDITION: The first Kühn edition, bilingual Greek and Latin text in parallel columns with catchwords, supplementary matter in Latin and Hebrew, title in red and black decorated with printer's engraved, b/w pictorial mark, a 112 x 73 mm Pegasus (flying horse), texts decorated with chapter initials and arabesque woodcut head-and-foot pieces with botanical or classical motifs, with introductions to each book, now formatted in chapters and with added new notes, based in part on work of Isaac Casaubon, text principally from the critical Greek text by Wilhelm Xylander [1532-1576], completed by Friedrich Sylburg [1536-1596], their notes retained for each page. Latin translation: Romolo Quirino Amaseo [1489-1552]. FORMAT: Untouched, early, full vellum boards, sides stamped in center with a foliated arabesque botanical design circumscribing a portrait head, different for each side, the seven compartment banded spine decorated with gold leaf floral tools, with three mounted morocco lettering devices with gold leaf letters, numbers, and borders, these, decorated with finely executed bead and lozenge elements; all edges tinted red. SIZE: Folio, 358 x 233 mm, pages with full margins, 333 x 212 mm, as issued. PAGINATION: Confirmed complete, except lacking blank front leaf: [26 pages]; 1-898 pages; 899-943 pp., each column as one page; (1); [75] pages, unpaginated indices; index 1, 29 leaves; index 2, 9 pages and index 3, 8 pages; [1] rear blank leaf. Guide to Greece provides details on hundreds of sites and villages in Attica and the Peloponnese, (Southern and Central Greece), only incidentally mentioning Northern Greece, and doesn't describe Crete. Pausanias begins his description of each city with a synopsis of its history. Book I (with separate title page): Attica on Athens (with much valuable detail on the Agora), Atticus and Megara; pp 1-109. Book II: Corinth on Corinth, Argolis and island of Aegina; pp. 109-202. Book III: Laconia; pp. 203-278. Book IV: Messenia; pp. 279-373, principally on its history. Books V + VI: Elis; pp. 374-450 and pp. 451-520. Book VII: Achaea; pp. 521-597. Book VIII: Arcadia; pp. 597-710. Book IX: Boeotia; pp. 711-797. Book X: Phocis, especially Delphi, and parts of Locris; pp. 797-898. CONDITION DETAIL: Owner Markings: minimal: neatly mounted shelf label top corner of pastedown: bookplate: some handwritten notations providing pages in subject index. Pages: excellent: exceptionally clean and bright with some cockling, about 15 pages with an isolated small margin spot: a preliminary page with a closed vertical bottom margin tear: p 88: a small fore-edge chip and soiling in inner margin: p. 95: minor top corner tear: pp. 645-646: bottom edge chip with light loss: pp. 647-648: tear in inner margin, tear in outer margin, and .75 mm tear in text with loss of 6 Greek letters: pp. 835-850: slight toning: pp. 915-916: head of fore-edge margin with slight loss: last index page with slight bottom corner crease, pen mark and slight toning . Covers: overall rubs and soiling: corners bent in. Upper Side: stamped design partially rubbed off: Binding: upper joint split at compartments 2 & 3 with splitting along much of spine, but nevertheless, reliably attached: hinges excellent: signatures solid: pages turn well and lie flat. Bookplate: print fine: mount o.k.: a top corner detached. PROVENANCE: Thomas Papillon Esq, of Acrise Place, Kent and Crowhurst Park, Sussex [1803-1883], his engraved b/w bookplate from a Thomas Cole design with distinctive butterfly motif at the center of his heraldic coat of arms with circumscribing Latin motto, "Ditat Servata Fides" (faith preserved enriches). Print is 98 x 84 mm in the plate, mounted on the half-title page. "The design was originally done for Burke's Heraldic Illustrations and later used as a bookplate" (British Museum). Laid-In-Note: handwritten pen & ink Dibdin quote on Kühn edition, not in Dibdin's hand, copier unknown. AVAILABILITY: Very Scarce: a worldwide search finds this edition highly sought after and collected with 80 institutional holdings, including at Princeton, Oxford and Cambridge: "Pausanias was Winckelmann's guide" (Pretzler). KÜHN: chair of Greek and Hebrew at the University of Strasbourg from 1685. REFERENCE: The 19th century Greek critical text that superseded Kühn was the Hitzig and Blümner published in 1856, both supplanted by the now authoritative Rocha-Pereira 2nd edition published in 1989.

        Protomathesis

      Architectural woodcut title border; a large woodcut of Urania & the author beneath a celestial sphere, repeated in the "Cosmographia" section; a large woodcut of a water-clock, repeated; 280 other woodcuts in the text; and numerous large initials & headpieces. 8 p.l., 207 (i.e. 209) leaves, one leaf of errata. Folio, most attractive early 18th-cent. mottled half-sheep & mottled boards (first two leaves a little discolored), spine gilt, pale brown & green morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: [G. Morrhe & J. Pierre], 1532. First collected edition, and a magnificent large copy of this beautiful book, containing the first printings of many of Finé&#39;s texts; this is his masterpiece of illustrated book production. The first two parts of the Protomathesis deal with arithmetic and geometry, the third with cosmography, and the fourth with gnomonics. Finé (1494-1555), "was Regius professor of mathematics and dedicated the volume to François I. Before Johnson&#39;s article and Brun&#39;s consideration of Finé, little attention had been paid to the statements made by Finé&#39;s contemporaries that he was considered as well versed in art as in the sciences. His work as a designer is closely related to his major fields of mathematics, astronomy, and geography, and his contribution to book production is particularly interesting in extending beyond the illustration to the ornamentation of scientific texts."-Mortimer 225. A fine and fresh copy, very crisp. With the blank leaves F8 and N6. Early 18th-century bookplate of "Co. Riccati." This was the noble Riccati family which held land near Venice. The family produced two prominent scientists: Jacopo Francesco (1676-1754) and his second son Vincenzo (1707-75). They both made important contributions to mathematics (see D.S.B., XI, pp. 399-402). There are a number of knowledgeable 18th-century annotations in this book which could well have been made by one of the Riccatis. &#10087; Hoover 312. Lalande, p. 50-"on trouve les cadrans plans horizontaux, verticaux, équinoxiaux; les cadrans sur les cylindres, les anneaux et les quarts-de-cercle; les hémisphères concaves et convexes; le cadran rectiligne universel des hauteurs; les heures italiques; l&#39;instrument pour trouver l&#39;heure par les étoiles, l&#39;anneau astronomique; un instrument propre à tracer les cadrans; c&#39;est un cercle équinoxial traversé d&#39;un axe, et un fil qu&#39;on tend sur les heures.&#39;&#39; Smith, Rara Arithmetica, pp. 160-61.

      Cologne: ex officina Melchioris Novesiani, impensis Arnoldi Birckman, September 1532. Small folio, signed in 4s and 6s. (10 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches). [82] ff. Text in latin. Woodcut title-portrait of Charles V within a woodcut border of escutcheons of Spanish provinces and towns, the portrait repeated within decorative border-pieces on A1 and F1, large ornamental woodcut initials and border-pieces in text, woodcut printer&#39;s device at end. Later half calf and paper boards, gilt leather labels. Housed in a black morocco backed box. A crucial edition, with many important materials published for the first time. Second Latin edition of the second and third letters of Cortés to Emperor Charles V and the first to contain missionary reports from Yucatan and Mexico. Cortés gave his personal account of the conquest of Mexico in a series of five letters, or Cartas de Relación, which he addressed to Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor. The famed first letter was lost, making the second letter the earliest account by Cortés himself, describing the events in Mexico after his departure from Vera Cruz. The third letter continues the narrative, describing Mexican events from October 1520 to May 1522. The present work includes the second editions in Latin of the second and third letters (translated by Petrus Savorgbabus), as well as Peter Martyr&#39;s De Insulia (a condensed version of the lost first Cortés letter); a letter from Mexico by Martin de Valencia, dated June 12, 1531, which is the first printed report from the Yucatan; a letter from Bishop Zumarraga giving an account of the Franciscan schools in Mexico, their teachers, and the Indian converts; and a letter from Nicholaus Herborn dated 1532. These last three sections appear here in this edition for the first time. A rare edition, with only three other copies appearing in the auction records over the last thirty- five years.

        Herbarium Vivae Eicones ad naturae imitationem ...

Folio (320 x 205mm). pp. (viii), 266, (66, including final blank); pp. 313, 5, (1, blank), title of first volume in woodcut border, full page woodcut coat of arms of Strassburg, 4 woodcut ornamental borders, and 138 woodcuts of plants, mostly full page. Contemporary limp vellum, old lettering on spine. A very fine Large Paper copy, much larger than copies we have had or seen. Both volumes in the second edition. The first edition of the first volume is exceedingly rare. "A genuine milestone in the history of the botanical sciences.. " (Tomasi & Willis. An Oak Spring Herbaria p. 31). "This is an important book. Brunfels was the first great mind in modern botany and as Sachs says, a new epoch of natural science began with Brunfels...."(Hunt 30). A celebrated herbal which marks an epoch in the history of botanic illustration. It was the first herbal illustrated with drawings which are throughout both beautiful and true to nature. The plants are represented as they are in the greatest possible artistic perfection by Weiditz, one of the best German illustrators, whose name appears in the book. "Weiditz accepted Nature as he found her. Was a leaf torn or drooping, a flower withered?- he observed the fact with the cold eye of the realist and recorded it with the precision of a true craftsman. The beauty was never wantonly sacrificed to mere scientific accuracy; the poet in him always triumphed, the artist in him always prevailed. His work must ever remain the high-water mark of woodcutting employed in the service of botanical illustration" (Blunt p. 47). Posthumously a third volume was published in 1536 by Michael Herr, which is seldon found with the first two volumes, and which was illustrated by an other artist. Nissen BBI, 257, 1b & 257, 2b; Hunt 30.

        Michael/ Angelus/ Bonarotus/ Pinxit/ Adam/ Sculptor/ Mantuanus/ Incidit

      [Mantua, after 1532, before 1580, ca. 1550?]. 73 engraved plates on 36 sheets; each half-sheet measures 22.5 x 33 cm. Michelangelo as seen by art students of the next generation. This series of engravings, of individual figures from Michelangelo?s Sistine Chapel ceiling frescoes, was probably made for modelling studies by a Mantuan artist of whose ?uvre this isthe major part. Smudging in corners of the early sheets and indications of tracing ontheverso of plate 37 are the remains ofits use as a student book. Michelangelo?s accurate anatomy, dramatic foreshortening and unconventional positioning must have been exciting material for early students to work with. That Adam Scultori was no Michelangelo can be seen by comparing hands drawn by the two artists. Michelangelo could make a hand exciting; Scultori?s versionof the same feature only makes us appreciate the master all the more. The series of plates form an iconographic andnarrative progression: 2-21: nude male figures of the ceiling panels (Plate Ten depicts a figure destroyed long ago); 22-33: sibyls and prophets; 34-61:lunettes depicting ancestors ofChrist; 62-65: destroyed by Michelangelo in 1532 to make space for The Last Judgment; 66-73:eight spandrels complementing the lunettes. The engravings eliminate all detail that might detract from anatomy and the flow of fabric. In his ordering, Scultori obliterates Michelangelo?s logical sequence: the plates were intended not as an accurate record of the paintings but as anatomical studies.

      Fine large woodcut on title, several other large woodcuts & about 125 woodcuts in the text. 8 p.l., 280 leaves. Small folio, cont. blindstamped calf-backed wooden boards (a few unimportant wormholes to first fifty leaves, occasional minor stain), orig. clasps & catches. Strasbourg: H. Grüniger, 1532. Third edition (1st ed.: 1512) of the "Grosse Distillierbuch," the most extensive early handbook of pharmacology, which remained an authority throughout the 16th century. The special purpose of this book was to apply the methods of distillation with steam to separate the active principles of medicinal agents from the nonessential matter. This is a richly illustrated work with more than 125 handsome woodcuts depicting distillation equipment, furnaces, and anatomical subjects. The text describes the distillation of spirits from wine, mead, and fermented fruit juices, and the distillation of plants, roots, and flowers. There are sections on aromatic and empyreumatic oils, distilled vinegar, and other products of distillation. There are particularly good descriptions of the technique of distillation. For each plant, Brunschwig has provided its synonyms, indications, and valuable parts. Brunschwig (ca. 1450-ca. 1512), after receiving an education in surgery, traveled extensively through Alsace, Swabia, Bavaria, and the Rhineland as far as Cologne, practicing surgery and acquiring experience in the preparation of medicines, specifically in the technique of distillation. He finally settled in his native city of Strasbourg where he practiced medicine and became a writer on medical and pharmacological subjects. A very good copy in a contemporary binding. Two leaves -- P6 and Q1 -- carefully remargined at head and foot with several neat repairs (from another copy?). &#10087; D.S.B., II, pp. 546-47. Durling 749. .

        "Typus cosmographicus universalis" from Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus, Novis orbis Regionum

      Basel: Hervagius, 1532. THE FIRST WORLD MAPS TO DEPICT THE THEORIES OF NICOLAUS COPERNICUS Woodcut: 143/4" x 22" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 65; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 67. While the Paris edition of Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus&#39;s 1532 Novus orbis regionum included Oronce Finé&#39;s double-cordiform map (see above, n. 9), the Basel edition of the same year included this very different cartographic treatment of the world on an oval projection. With the cartography ascribed to prominent cartographer Sebastian Münster and the execution to the celebrated German artist Hans Holbein the Younger, the map is particularly fine from an artistic standpoint, with sea monsters adorning the waves of the oceans, exotic animals and landscape views with curious classical architectural structures around the margins, along with less benign scenes depicting acts of cannibalism and animal sacrifice. These nightmarish fantasies of terrible creatures and terrifying customs in distant places surely reflect the flights of imagination that contemporary geographical discoveries inspired among western Europeans, and one might go so far as to say that Holbein inflected his rendering with a distinctly medieval sensibility. In another sense, however, the map was progressive, even groundbreaking, for it was one of the first world maps to reflect the Copernican theory of a heliocentric universe. Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), the Polish astronomer who famously argued that the earth orbited around the sun and rotated once daily on its own axis, was Münster&#39;s contemporary. Although Copernicus&#39;s groundbreaking book De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres) was not published until 1543, his ideas-- spread through lectures, circulated in written pamphlets and via word of mouth-- were gaining currency among geographers and astronomers when Münster published this map. Before Copernicus, most scholars had upheld the Ptolemaic conception of a stationary earth at the center of the universe. Ultimately, the theories of the Polish astronomer proved too radical to escape controversy and were rejected by the Church. (Later scholars, most notably Galileo Galilei and Giordano Bruno, were ultimately put to death for upholding and expanding upon Copernicus&#39;s theories.) In the 1530s, however, the controversy had yet to crystallize, and Münster and Holbein&#39;s map demonstrates an adherence to the Copernican model with the inclusion of two angels vigorously turning crank handles at the north and south poles, as though physically rotating the planet on a giant spit. The significance of this map, therefore, is not just aesthetic, for it also visualizes a key moment in the history of science and a turning point in knowledge about the workings of the universe..

        OPERA OMNIA TRALATIONE MARSILII FICINI. Emendatione et ad Graecum Codicem collatione Simonis Grynaei Nunc recens summa diligentia repurgata.

      In-4 (mm. 325x220), p. pergam. molle coeva (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso, 6 cc.nn., 959 pp.num., marca tipografica al frontesp. e al verso dell?ultima carta; ornato da bei capilettera figur. a vignetta e con alcuni diagrammi astronomici nel t. che illustrano il ?Tymaeus?. Questa importante edizione, introdotta da una dedica del curatore S. Grynaeus, dal proemio dedicato a Lorenzo de Medici e dalla ?vita? di Platone scritta da Marsilio Ficino (che termina con l?Indice), contiene 37 opere platoniche (inclusi i Dialoghi, i 10 libri ?de Republica?, i 12 libri ?de Legibus? e 12 Lettere), i Commenti al ?Convivium? e al ?Timaeus? del Ficino, il quale prepose l??Argumentum? ad ogni Dialogo. La traduzione in latino delle opere di Platone, fatta da Marsilio Ficino, è considerata la più importante di ogni tempo. Il filosofo (1433-99) si dedicò interamente al platonismo quando (1458) Cosimo de? Medici gli accordò, con la sua protezione, anche i mezzi per compiere tali studi. Iniziata nella villa di Careggi (donatagli da Cosimo) la traduzione dei dialoghi platonici, egli alternava il lavoro con conversazioni di argomento filosofico, politico, letterario con gli amici. Da queste discussioni ebbe origine l?Accademia platonica. Il Ficino, nel commento di Platone, dimostrava chiaro il suo intento di conciliare paganesimo e cristianesimo, filosofia e religione. (Così Diz. Treccani,IV, p. 728). La traduzione dei dialoghi iniziata nel 1466 fu pubblicata per la prima volta a Firenze nel 1484 ed è considerata tra le più alte produzioni dell?Umanesimo. Questa edizione, per la prima volta accuratamente ricorretta dal teologo protestante Simon Grynaeus (1493-1541), su un manoscritto greco, è particolarmente stimata. Cfr. Adams,II,1445, p. 90 - Graesse,V, p. 320. Con lievi uniformi arross. interc. nel t.; ca. 50 carte con aloni e fiorit., ma certam. un buon esemplare marginoso.

        "Terræ Sanctæ, quam Palæstinam nominant, Syriæ, Arabiæ & Schondiæ doctissima descriptio, una cum singulis tabulis earundum regionum topographicis"

      The complete book, second edition. Small-folio, 28x19,3cm Contemporary calf, both covers with a frame, a gilt floral stamp in the middle and in the corners. The spine in seven compartments, each with a gilt flower and a library number "FE.7" in lower (the binding possibly carefully restored) Titlepage (I), II - CXLII (1 - 142 leaves inclusive title and five diagrams in text), 14 leaves index, 8 double-page woodcut maps, 2 leaves (3pp) "Incastigationum mendarum." Strasbourg (1532) - 1536 The humanist and theologian Jacob Ziegler was born in Bavaria and spent much of his time travelling around in Europe. In the 1520s he lived in Rome, and here he was influenced by religious people and theologians from many countries, many escaping from their home country because of the reformation. Among the people he met are the four Scandinavian church officials: Erik Walkendorf, Archbishop of Trondheim; Olav Engelbrektsson, Archbishop of Uppsala; Johannes Magnus and Bishop Peder Månsson who apparently gave him valuable geographical information about the North as well as knowledge about the people who lived here. The main part of the book and seven maps of eight describing Palestine with corrections and additions to earlier sources like Ptolemy and the Bible. The rest of the book is devoted to Scandinavia and the North. This part is perhaps mostly notable for the accompanying map of the area "Octava Tabula Continet Cheronnesum Schondiam, Regna autem potasium, Norduegiam, Sueciam, Gothiam, Finlandiam, Gentem Lapones". The map sets a new standard after the Ulm map 1482 and is a key map in the history of cartography of the North. For the first time the axis of Scandinavia is running north - south. The peninsula of Finland is not only distinctly depicted by Ziegler but the name Finland ("Finlandia") is for the first time being introduced on a printed map. In the text Ziegler gives an account of Greenland and the Scandinavian settlements. The American continent is melted together with Greenland and the name "Terra Bacallaos" - Land of Codfish on the southern part represents Newfoundland. First published in 1532 this second and last edition is dated four years later. The two editions are basically the same, but the book was given a new title in 1536 and it was added 64 pages text "Terræ Sanctæ desriptio" and 28 pages index. Map number eight of the Northern regions is identical in both editions.One of many treasures in the National Library in Oslo is a manuscript codex of Ziegler's book written by Martin Richter, Ziegler's permanent secretary. It contents 380 pages and three maps including the map of Scandinavia.. A very fine, crisp copy in original condition and with good margins. In a representative binding. William B.
