PLATO (PLATONE)
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.

JACOB ZIEGLER (1470 - 1549)
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prima edizione contenente il libro VI, dedicato alla chirurgia " De Chirurgia " preceduta dall' Editio Princeps in greco di Aldo del 1528 e dall' impressione di Basilea del 1532. Il VI libro fu tradotto da Bernardo Feliciano e pubblicato per la prima volta in questa edizione da Lucantonio Giunta. Vedi a proposito la nota a pag. 232 dell' opera, dove lo stesso Tommaso Giunta chiede la traduzione. Nel " De Chirurgia " si ha un panorama abbastanza vasto sulla tecnica chirurgica dell' epoca.

DÜRER, Albrecht
Paris: Christian Wechel, 1532. First Latin edition of Dürer’s first book on the theory of art, the Unterweisung der Messung, bound with the first Latin edition of his treatise on fortification, “strictly speaking the first treatise dealing exclusively with this subject” (Krufft), with important material on urban planning and utopianism.1) Illustrated by Dürer himself, the Institutionum Geometricarum outlines the artist’s theory of “the work of art as a natural object”, 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 “the last major painter to be counted a significant geometer” (Kemp), the work is naturally of interest for applications in Dürer’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’s importance as three-fold: for the technical innovat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cicero
Paris Jodocus Badius Ascensius, 1532.. Sm. 4to. (8 1/8 x 5 8/16 inches), recently bound in the antique style in full tobacco color goat with triple blind ruled borders surrounding a narrow scroll border, which is bordered by a pair of blind fillets; plain spine with blind-blocked horizontal bands. A large copy with a few underlinings, a touch of occasional spotting, including a small black ink spot on the title; the last four leaves of the b signature roughly opened along part of the extreme bottom margin; otherwise a very attractive copy of an uncommon edition. Cicero's stoic maxims, dedicated to Brutus, with commentary by Franciscus Sylvanus are here applied to everyday life. Not only Rome's greatest orator, Cicero was perhaps its most articulate philosopher, and through his philosophical treatises he helped make Latin a strong, yet surprisingly flexible, vehicle for logical speculation. This edition was printed by Josse Bade (1462-1535), a Fleming who moved to Paris and Latinized his name to Jodocus Badius Ascensius. He is the first of three great French printer-scholars (the other two are Henri Estienne and Geoffroy Tory), who were enamored of humanism and worked to spread abroad the works of classical authors. Led by Bade, they each resolutely broke with French gothic tradition, and employed for their publications the beautiful roman types created by Janson and Aldus Manutius. Moreau locates copies in the British Library, the Bibliotheque National, the Laurentian Library (Florence) and in the Folger. Not in Adams.

Paris: Antoine Augerelle, for Jean Petit, 8 Nov 1532. Folio (12 x 8 inches). Title-page with woodcut printer's device of Jean Petit, folding woodcut map of the world by Oronce Fine (1494-1555), 1531 (lower margin of map close cut, left blank margin slightly shaved and with extended margin, occasional light spotting to text). 18th-century vellum over paste-board, lettered in ink on spine "Variorum Geographia" and "Grynaeus Novus Orbis 94" (three small areas of light abrasion on the spine); modern quarter brown morocco clamshell box. Provenance: Near contemporary ownership inscription of Carolus Bartolomeus Ranasius Cremonensis at the foot of the title-page; 18th-century inscription "No 94 Variorum Auctorum" in the upper right-hand margin of the title-page. The first appearance of Magellan's name on a map. First published in Basel the same year, this is an exceptionally fine copy with the RARE WORLD MAP BY ORONCE FINE, the most prominent French cartographer of the 16th-century. Fine's double-cordiform (or heart-shaped) projection of the world is a modification of Werner's cordiform, but first employed by Fine in his world map of 1519. This new form which shows both the north and south poles went on to be used by Mercator in his 1538 world map and by Lafreri in 1560 and is a logical departure from the speculative geography of Waldseemüller and Ruysch. Fine names the lower Pacific "Mare Magellanium", which is the first appearance of Magellan's name on a map.

A nice wide-margined copy in contemporary blind-stamped calf over wooden bds., 1 brass catch, lacking clasps (covers scuffed, rear cover with a few small round wormholes, spine ends & corners worn, paper label on upper spine, tear in Tt4-6 – no loss). Sixth Edition of the Latin Translation by Marsilio Ficino, the first to contain the careful revisions of distinguished Protestant theologian Simon Grynaeus [1493-1541]. Grynaeus, a friend of Melanchthon and Erasmus, and professor of Greek at Heidelberg (1523) and Basel (1536), was also the editor of the second Greek edition of Plato, published at Basel in 1534. Ficino’s translation, begun in 1466 and first published in 1484-85, made his name famous in the history of scholarship and has been called "the best translation of that author Italy can boast." (Encyc. Britan., 11th Edn.) The manuscripts on which he worked were supplied by his patron Cosimo de’ Medici and by Americo Benci. While the translation was in progress, Ficino periodically submitted its pages for discussion and revision to Angelo Poliziano, Christoforo Landino, Demetrios Chalchondylas, and other fellow scholars who were members of the Platonic Academy. "Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499) was the most influential representative of Renaissance Platonism.

Fine, Oronce (1494-1555)
Paris: Galliot Du Pré, 1532. THE MOST SPECTACULAR FRENCH RENAISSANCE DOUBLE-CORDIFORM MAP OF THE WORLD, DESIGNED BY A MATHAMATICAL GENIUS Woodcut: 13" x 16 7/8" References: Lloyd Arnold Brown, The World Encompassed, exh. cat. (Baltimore, 1952), n. 64; Rodney W. Shirley, The Mapping of the World (London, 1983), n. 66; R. V. Tooley, Maps and Map-makers (New York, reprint 1990), 38. Oronce Finé, the most eminent French cartographer of the sixteenth century, is celebrated for having employed a distinctive and influential cordiform (or heart-shaped) projection for world maps. This striking example, the first double-cordiform map ever published, was subsequently much imitated. Drawn in 1531, it first appeared in the 1532 Paris edition of Johann Huttich and Simon Grynaeus's Novus orbis regionum, a collection of travel accounts that had also been published in Basel several months before. As a double-cordiform representation, it shows the world divided into separate hemispheres, north and south, each depicted in the form of a heart or cordum that mirrors the other, with the two meeting at a central point on the Equator. The left or northern cordum encompasses Asia, Europe, part of Africa and America, while the right includes those parts of Africa and the New World that lay south of the Equator as well as "Terra Australis," the southern continent that was then little more than speculative. Based on sophisticated geometric principles for reducing the spherical earth to a two-dimensional image, Finé's delineation of the world was much copied throughout the sixteenth century. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Munster, Sebastian (1488-1552), cartographer and Holbein, Hans, the Younger (1497-15430, Draftsman
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's 1532 Novus orbis regionum included Oronce Finé'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 th … [Click Below for Full Description]
