         Zodiacus vitae, hoc est, de hominis vita, studio ac miribus optime instituendis Libri XII. opus mire eruditum, planeq(ue) Philosophicum: nunc denuo longe quam antea cum emendatius, tum diligenter excusum. Cui supra priorem editionem accessit rerum ac uerborum toto opere memorabilium instructissimo index.

      in officina Roberti Winter, 1537. In-12°, pp. (88), 387, (1 bianca), mancano le ultime 2 carte bianche, capilettera in xilografia, legatura in piena pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto al dorso e al taglio inferiore. Ottimo e fresco esemplare. Prima edizione datata e prima edizione fuori dall'Italia. L'opera fù messa all'indice nel 1558 a causa dell'empietà delle dottrine e dell'aspra critica del clero, tanto vero che l'opera ebbe larga diffusione in ambienti protestanti e fu molto apprezzata in Inghilterra, mentre in Italia fu letto solo da pochi liberi pensatori come Giordano Bruno. "L'opera è divisa in dodici canti e illustra i vari segni dello zodiaco celeste, in modo da rappresentare simbolicamente la vita e i più importanti problemi che vi si riconnettono. L'opera si presenta come un poema scientifico, che vuole illustrare le più ampie conquiste del pensiero in evidente dipendenza dal grande modello del poema della Natura di Lucrezio. L'autore mostra la sua simpatia per verso Lutero e a Erasmo nella satira del clero e della rampogna contro le superstizioni e le mollezze del tempo. Si coglie nell'opera il più vivo spirito del Rinascimento, conscio di sè e delle conquiste umane, con l'esaltazione della divina realtà spirituale che trova nell'uomo il suo maggiore interprete. Tipicamente umanstica, questa teoria della fede nella natura tende a sfuggire all'assolutismo dei dogmi anche con la teoria delle due verità...". Dizionario letterario delle opere e dei personaggi, Bompiani, vol. VII, pag. 933, I primi filosofi che presero seriamente in considerazione questo poema furono G.C. Scaligero nelle sue Poetices (1561) e Giordano Bruno nel libro VIII del suo Immenso (1591), dove egli discute le idee cosmologiche del Palingenio, mentre alcuni passaggi di quest'opera risultano essere delle vere e proprie parafrasi di parti dello Zodiacus Vitae.

         1549 "Matthew's Bible" - A Good Fragment - Printed in London - See Description

      - Imprinted by Thomas Raynald & William Hyll. Folio, incomplete copy. A reprint of the 1537 "Matthew's Bible" and interestingly a "treakle" Bible (cf. Jer. 8:22); earlier than the better known "treacle" Bible of 1568, 1578. "In 1537 a revised English Bible known as 'Matthew's Bible' appeared. The ascription to "Thomas Matthew" was nominal. its real editor being John Rogers". A large fragment of this early Bible in English. Comprising Tyndale's Prologue and then Genesis to the end of Ecclesiastes, but lacking all before leaf A1 and all after Ecclesiastes. Herberts 75; STC (rev. ed.) 2078; ESTC S106941. 19th century plain sheep, abraded, dry, and top of spine pulled. Lacking all before leaf A1 and all after Ecclesiastes (i.e., leaf Kk2). Title leaf is dated 1537 and first leaf of the calendar have been added from another bible? Both pages are on very old paper with chain marks. They could be old facsimile's but I'm not sure either way. Being sold as is. If the Title is 100 % genuine- you have hit a home run ++++ If not- oh well - still a good bargain . Larger paper margins than normal. Front cover half detached. Priced accordingly with all it's faults. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         This Boke Sheweth the Maner of Measurynge All Maner of Lande, as Well of Woodlande, as of Lande in the Felde and Comptynge the True Nombre of Acres of the Same. [edited by Thomas Paynell.]

      Southwark: James Nicolson, [1537 or 1538?] - FIRST EDITION of “the first English textbook on geometrical land-measurement and surveying” (Buisseret, Monarchs, Ministers, and Maps). The book focused on practical methods calculating everything from the amount of stone needed to pave a chamber floor to the size of a pasture or field” marking “the beginning of a new interest in measuring not just the assets of the land, but the land itself” (D. K. Smith, Cartographic Imagination in Early Modern England). In this landmark in the history of surveying, Richard Benese described for the first time in English how to calculate the area of a field or an entire estate. Noting that sellers tended to exaggerate the size of a property whereas buyers were inclined to underestimate it, he advised the surveyor to approach the task in a careful and methodical manner: “When ye shall measure a piece of any land ye shall go about the boundes of it once or twice, and [then] consider well by viewing it whether ye may measure it in one parcel wholly altogether or else in two or many parcels.” Measuring it in “many parcels,” he explained, was necessary when the field was an uneven, irregular shape; by dividing it up into smaller, regular shapes like squares and oblongs and triangles it became easy to calculate accurately the total area. The distances were to be carefully measured with a rod or pole, precisely 16 1/2 feet long, or a cord. And finally, the surveyor was to describe the area in words, and to draw a plat showing its shape and extent. “Like the maps, this interest in exact measurement was also new. Until then, what mattered was how much land would yield, not its size. When William the Conqueror instituted the great survey of England in 1086, known as the Domesday Book, his commissioners noted the dimensions of estates in units like virgates and hides, which varied according to the richness of the soil: a virgate was enough land for a single person to live on, a hide enough to support a family, and consequently the size shrank when measuring fertile land, and expanded in poor, upland territory. Other Domesday units like the acre and the carrucate were equally flexible, but so long as land was held in exchange for services, the number of people it could feed and so make available to render those services was more important than its exact area. Accurate measurement became important in 1538 because beginning in that year a gigantic swath of England-almost half a million acres-was suddenly put on sale for cash.” (New York Times 1 Dec 2002). Benese’s Maner of Measurynge All Maner of Lande marks an epoch, the widespread idea of land as private property. Under the feudal system, land was generally owned by the king. Everyone else, from duke and baron to vassal and villein, was a tenant exchanging goods and services for land rights. “During the sixteenth century a large part of the property of Europe was suddenly wrested from one privileged group and handed over to a new one. The Church was expropriated; the lands of feudal magnates, who opposed both capitalism and the new religion, and the ancient demesne lands of the Crown, were transferred by forced sale to the new ruling class” (Schlatter, Private Property, the History of an Idea). Suddenly land became widely available to capitalists. This sea change in the world’s economic order required that real estate dealings be put on a rational economic basis, and Benese’s book marks that new era. “If there is a single date when the idea of land as private property can be said to have taken hold, it is 1538. In that year a tiny volume was published with a long title that began, This boke sheweth the maner of measurynge of all maner of lande. In it, the author, Sir Richard Benese, described for the first time in English how to calculate the area of a field or an entire estate . . .

         Anatomiae, hoc est, corporis humani dissectionis pars prior [all published]. [ Anatomia Porci, ex traditione Cophonis; Anatomia Infantis, ex Gabriele de Zerbis]; [Bound with:] Anatomia Mundini, ad vetustissimorum, erundemque aliquot manu scriptorumm, codicum fidem collata, iustoq ue suo ordini restituta. Per Joannem Dryandrum .

      Eucharius Gervicornus; Christian Egenolph 1537; [1541], Marburg; Marburg - A very attractive sammelband, comprising two rare illustrated works of pre-Vesalian anatomy, in their original untouched vellum binding: the enlarged second edition of Dryander’s Anatomia capitis humani (1536), the first significant analysis of the anatomy of the head, united with his edition of the Anathomia of Mundinus, known as the "restorer of anatomy" for his innovative dissection practice. The illustrations are, with those of Berengario, the best that were published before Vesalius’ Fabrica in 1543 (Lind, p. 297). The 1536 work, a thin quarto of 14 leaves containing 11 woodcut illustrations of the anatomy of the head, is of extreme rarity (only two copies at American/British auctions since the 19th century; neither Cushing, Osler nor Waller owned a copy). It was probably published in a small edition because Dryander intended it to serve as the preliminary to a full-scale illustrated anatomy, but the project was abandoned after publishing the first part, the present Anatomiae (hence pars prior). This copy is remarkable for having the folding table, which is almost always lacking (it is apparently lacking from the Wellcome and Waller copies, for example). The second work is the finest illustrated edition of the first book devoted to anatomy (and the first to incorporate new knowledge gained since antiquity). His illustrations, based on actual dissection, whether his own or others currently in circulation, make "Dryander’s illustrated anatomical works . an important milestone of anatomical illustration" (Persaud). It is particularly appropriate to find these two works bound together, because Dryander began his translation of Mundinus at the end of the Anatomiae, so the second work could be viewed as a continuation of the first. Like many humanist scholars of the period, Eichmann used a Hellenized version of his name, both Dryander and Eichmann translating as ‘oak-man’. His likeness, later engraved by Thomas de Bry, shows him holding a small oak leaf by way of identification. ABPC/RBH record only a handful of copies of each work in the last 30 years: I. Christie’s 2004 (lacking folding table) $9560; Christie’s 1998 (Norman copy, $31050); Christie’s 1988 ($11758); Sotheby’s 1982 (lacking table, $5390); Swann 1979 ($8800). II. Jeschke 2011 (€7440); Swann 2007 ($7800); Christie’s 2005 ($18000); Sotheby’s 1990 ($2250); Christie’s 1988 (£1600); Swann 1979 ($6800). Provenance: Contemporary ownership inscription on title of first work (Joseph Longis); rear paste-down with the marking of Blondelet, and with his preferred custom morocco box by Duval. "Jean Blondelet was probably the greatest, but least known, French collector of rare medical and scientific books in the 20th century" (Jeremy Norman). "Johannes Eichmann was born on June 27, 1500, in the small town of Wetter, north of Marburg in upper Hesse, Germany. The son of a wealthy burgher, he received his early education in a local school from the prominent theologian Johannes Poenilius. In 1518, he entered the University of Erfurt, where he received his degree under Dr. Matthew Moyer. Remaining at the university, he joined the College of St. Mary’s Chapel to study under the physician Euricius Cordus. Cordus, the father of the eminent botanist Valerius Cordus (1515-44), was responsible for the education of the medical students at the university. Since he knew Eichmann’s family in Wetter, he gave particular attention to Eichmann’s early studies. Under his tutelage, Eichmann received his Master of Arts degree; he enjoyed anatomy and mathematics, but did well enough in medicine to earn a reputation eclipsing his teacher. "In 1524, Eichmann left the university: the pressures of the Reformation and the start of a plague forced him to flee to Bourges. According to Cordus, the university life had deteriorated: ‘Priests and monks are getting married all the time. Our university is in decay, the licentiousness of the students is almost as great as the licentiousness of the soldiers in the

         De moribus veterum haereticorum et quibuscum illi hac aetatem affinitatem habeant.[Eisleben], , 1537.

      [Eisleben], 1537 - Manoscritto cartaceo. Mm. 142 x 95., cc. (1) xxxxiii + 1 c.b. Testo in rosso e nero. Legatura antica in piena pelle; dorso a 4 nervi con fregi in oro agli scomparti. Tagli spruzzati. Trascurabile e marginale alone. Ben conservato. Georg Witzel (Vacha an der Werra, Assia, 1501 - Magonza, 1573), autorevole teologo tedesco, nel 1524 si convertì al luteranesimo e nel 1531, dopo l'incarcerazione nel castello di Belzig, ritornò in seno alla Chiesa cattolica dedicandosi ad attività controversistica (Pro defensione bonorum operum adversus novos evangelistas, 1532; Apologia, 1533 e appunto De moribus veterum haereticorum, Lipsia, 1537). Dal 1538 si spostò continuamente, in Germania e in Boemia, cercando di propagandare un suo progetto di riunione ecclesiastica d'ispirazione erasmiana. Anche a questo scopo ricevette una pensione annua da Massimiliano II. Questo straordinario manoscritto di storia delle eresie riporta come luogo di realizzazione Eisleben, città dove l'A. risiedeva nel 1537 prima di recarsi a Dresda nel 1538. Witzel ebbe grossi problemi nel reperire un editore non convertito al luteranesimo, quindi nel 1537 l'opera iniziò a circolare clandestinamente manoscritta. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

(2)r, headpiece, initials and titles printed in red on l. 1, in Byzantine style (all previously used by the Venetian printers Nikolaos Vlastos and Zacharias Kallierges, 1499-1500). Ownership's inscription on the title-page 'Gerardi Cerfolii'. A few contemporary marginal annotations in Greek. Some very light foxing and browning on the first and last leaves. A very good, crispy copy.EDITIO PRINCEPS of Hesiodus's complete works, containing also in first edition the Scholia by the grammarian Ioannes Tzetze (written around 1135-1140) and the Allegoriae in Theogoniam by Ioannes Galenos Diakonos (9th-10th cent.).The volume also includes the commentaries to the Opera et dies by Proklos, Ioannes Protospatarius, and Manuel Moschopoulos (12th-13th cent.). The text was edited by the physician Vittore Trincavelli, who dedicated the edition to Pietro Vettori (cf. M. Sicherl, Die griechischen Erstausgaben des Vettore Trincavelli, Paderborn, 1993, pp. 68-73).Trincavelli, born in Venice into a family coming originally from Tuscany, studied medicine and philosophy at Padua and Bologna. In 1551 he was appointed professor of medicine in Padua. As a physician, he also distinguished himself on the field during an epidemic which struck the island of Murano. As a Greek scholar, he collaborated with Bartolomeo Zanetti editing the text of at least nine Greek editiones principes.The present edition was considered as the most correct for a long time and was taken as a model for many subsequent editions (cf. Dibdin, Introduction to the Knowledge of Rare and Valuable Editions of the Greek and Latin Classics, London, 1927, II, p. 31).The Works and Days was first printed in 1480 in Milan by Bonus Accursius together with Theocritus' works. The Theogony and the Schiled of Heracles first appeared in the Aldine Theocritus of 1495/96.For Tzetze's Scholia and Diakonos' Allegoriae Trincavelli used manily a manuscript preserved in the Library of San Marco in Venice (Marc. gr. 464), copied by Demetrios Triklinios. For the commentaries by Protospatharios and Moschopoulos he employed a codex written by Georgios Tribizias (Marc. gr. 480), while the Scholia to Theogony are based on a later manuscript once belonging to the Dominican monastery of St. John and Paul (Marc. Gr. IX.6).Edit 16, CNCE23056; Adams, H-470; R. Mortimer, Italian 16th Century Books in the Harvard College Library, Cambridge MA, 1974, no. 233; M.

         Opera. Edited by Desiderius Erasmus and with Scholia by Erasmus & Beatus Rhenanus

      Woodcut printer's device on title & repeated on verso of final leaf. Small folio (319 x 208 mm.), cont. blind-stamped south German pigskin over wooden boards, orig. two catches & clasps. Basel: Johannes Hervagius, March 1537. Admired by Erasmus as a pagan moralist, Seneca (ca. 4 B.C.-65 A.D.) exerted a lasting influence on moral philosophy and rhetoric. He served as tutor to Nero until the Emperor's deeds forced Seneca to withdraw into retirement and, ultimately, commit suicide, an episode poignantly related by Tacitus (Annales XV, 62-64). Seneca's popularity endured unabated throughout the Middle Ages into the 15th and 16th centuries. Erasmus (ca. 1466-1536) produced the first critical edition of importance in 1515 at Basel, and he revised this in 1529, of which the present edition is a reprint. Vecellio Fore-edge Painting: Two full-length figures of a robed older Seneca with his former student, a young Nero, are painted on the fore-edge. The author's name is lettered vertically along the whole fore-edge, and horizontally below the lower clasp. Bottom and top edges are marbled. The painted decoration is the work of Cesare Vecellio (1521-1601), a cousin and pupil of Titian, in whose studio Vecellio worked until Titian's death. Among Vecellio's major paintings is the altarpiece at Belluno Cathedral. In addition to the painted fore-edges executed for the Pillones, Vecellio also painted a room in the Palazzo Pillone with the Four Seasons and the Rape of the Sabines. In his famous book on costume and manners, De gli habiti antichi et moderni (Venice: 1590), Vecellio mentions the library and other collections of the Pillone family as well as their generous hospitality. For his imagery, Vecellio took each book's author or content, so there are a series of author portraits, as here, or scenes, maps and views. 172 volumes were decorated in this way, 154 with fore-edges painted by Vecellio and 21 with original drawings on their vellum covers by him and other artists. Provenance: 1. Bonaccorso Grino (d. 1553) binding; kinsman by marriage to: 2. Odorico Pillone (1503-1593), Belluno; fore-edges. 3. Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), Armitage Bridge, Yorkshire; bookplate; sold by his heirs in 1957 to: 4. Pierre Berès (1913-2008), Paris. The Pillone Library has long been celebrated. Noted already in the 16th century as a library of "molti e diversi libri," it is celebrated among bibliophiles today for the remarkable painted decoration of its fore-edges and as a rare survival up to the modern day of a Renaissance library. The Pillone family, originally of Val Cadore, was prominent in the civic history of Belluno. Their library at Villa Casteldardo outside Belluno was primarily formed by the father and son, Antonio (1464-1533), and Odorico (1503-94), the former a soldier and diplomat, the latter a learned jurist. In the 1580s Odorico Pillone (or possibly his son Giorgio) commissioned Vecellio to decorate the fore-edges of a substantial portion of the best books in the library with paintings related to the contents. The 172 volumes decorated by Vecellio have had a remarkably stable existence over the next four centuries, which accounts in large measure for their almost uniformly excellent state of preservation. They remained together with other family collections until 1874 when the library was sold to the Venetian antiquarian Paolo Maresio Bazolle. The decorated volumes were then bought en bloc by the Yorkshire baronet Sir Thomas Brooke (1830-1908), and remained in his family until they were acquired and finally dispersed by Pierre Berès in 1957. Thanks to their unusual decoration and to the fact that the library remained intact until the 1950s, all of the Pillone books have been preserved in their original bindings. Binding: Contemporary south German, possibly Munich, pigskin over inner bevelled wooden boards, panelled sides tooled in blind with rolls and tools (Hobson pl. 4b, perhaps Augsburg?), two fore-edge clasps with brass catchplate on upper cover. This is one of the 59 books that Hobson calls "an unexpected element in the collection" (p. 34). Most of these were printed in Germany, some in France, only one in Italy. All are in German blind-stamped calf or pigskin bindings as the present copy. Odorico Pillone probably acquired these books, by gift, purchase or bequest, from his relation Giovanni Grino, who had inherited the collection from his father Bonaccorso Grino (Hobson, p. 36). In fine and fresh condition. ❧ Berès, Bibliothèque Pillone, 122.

         Anatomiae, hoc est, corporis humani dissectionis pars prior .

      Marburg: Eucharius Cervicornus, 1537. Hardcover. Near Fine. 4to [19.5 x 15.5 cm]. (36) ff., (1) folding table, with numerous anatomical woodcuts, woodcut title, printer's device, and initials. [With:] MONDINUS / DRYANDER, Johannes. Anatomia Mundini, ad vetustissimorum, erundemque aliquot manu scriptorium, codicum fidem collate, iustoq(ue) fuo ordini restitute. Marpurgi, In officina Christiani Egenolphi, 1541 (colophon). (4) ff., 67 ff., with numerous anatomical woodcuts, printer's device, and initials. Bound in contemporary limp vellum, minor restoration to one corner, ink splotch on front cover. First title: contemporary ownership inscription on title (Joseph Longis), minor marginal dampstaining, border of f. c1 slightly cropped, repaired minor tears where folding table connects to binding. Second title: minor loss upper blank corner of tp., printers crease to f. 5, small tears to ff. 35, 38 and 49, small blank corner loss f. 50, printer's crease in text of p. 51. Overall excellent. A very attractive ensemble: fine copies of two rare illustrated works of pre-Vesalian anatomy, here preserved together in their contemporary vellum binding as issued: the first expanded edition of Johannes Dryander's Anatomiae... pars prior (1537) followed by his new illustrated edition (1541) of the Anatomia of Mondino de Liuzzi (c. 1270-1326), known as the "restorer of anatomy" for his innovative dissection practice. A contemporary and rival of Andreas Vesalius (1514-64), Dryander (1500-60) was "one of the first authors to make drawings of his own dissections;" and his Anatomiae... pars prior of 1537 offered here is considered "the first significant work devoted to the anatomy of the brain" (Printing and the Brain of Man, p. 24). In fact, it is one of the first printed monographs devoted to any single part of the human body. Issued separately 4 years apart but found together here, these two works are among the best illustrated anatomies to predate the Fabrica (1543) of Vesalius (Lind, p. 297). Modern scholars have noted that several illustrations in Vesalius' Tabulae anatomica sex of 1538 shows signs of having been influenced by some of the images in Dryander's Anatomiae... pars prior. The 1537 Anatomiae... pars prior is an amplification of Dryander's 1536 Anatomia capitis humani (Marburg, Cervicornus), with a longer introduction, more detailed depictions of the head and brain, and new woodcuts of the thorax, heart, and lungs, which increase the number of its illustrations to twenty-three. The volume was apparently conceived as the first part of a (never finished) complete anatomy of the human body. The text of the treatise records Dryander's lecture given at Marburg on October 25, 1526, in which he praises Philip I, Landgrave of Hesse (1504-67), the work's dedicatee, for allowing the public dissection of the corpses of criminals and for advancing state support for the study of anatomy, ideas which were still progressive in the early sixteenth-century. Dryander, who led the first public dissections ever performed in Germany (Duffy, p. 87), emphasizes the importance of the study of anatomy for the practice of surgery, the study of pathology for better determining cause of death, and the better understanding of the nature of disease.....

         De incertitudine & vanitate scientiarum declamatio inuectiua, denuo ab autore recognita & marginalibus annotationibus aucta

      S.E, 1537. In-8°, cc. 192, bel ritratto in xilografia dell'autore al frontespizio, legatura recente in cartonatura rustica, titolo manoscritto al dorso. Carte di guardia nuove. Il primo fascicolo (composto da quattro carte) proviene da un altro esemplare, i fogli sono più corti al margine bianco inferiore. Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa di Nettesheim (Colonia, 15 settembre 1486 - Grenoble, 18 febbraio 1535) è stato un alchimista, astrologo, esoterista e filosofo tedesco. Divenne medico personale di Luisa di Savoia nonché storiografo di Carlo V; ritenuto principe dei maghi neri e degli stregoni, riuscì tuttavia a sfuggire all'Inquisizione. Il suo pensiero risiede essenzialmente nella sua opera più importante, il De occulta philosophia, scritta nell'arco di circa venti anni, dal 1510 al 1530: la filosofia occulta è la magia, considerata «la vera scienza, la filosofia più elevata e perfetta, in una parola la perfezione e il compimento di tutte le scienze naturali». L'opera è un attacco contro tutte le scienze, o quelle che tali erano reputate, e contro il clero: secondo Agrippa si fanno monaci i ribaldi per sfuggire alla giustizia, gli avventurieri che hanno perduto il loro patrimonio, i poltroni per guadagnarsi da vivere senza essere costretti a lavorare: «securi da tutti i pericoli del mondo et dalle molestie civili, mangiano il pane ozioso et furfantuoso in cambio di quello che si acquista colle fatiche, dormendo agiatamente e senza pensieri; et credono che questa sia povertà evangelica, vivere in ozio et furfanteria delle fatiche altrui» Il De incertitudine contiene anche un attacco contro le «scienze segrete» - alchimia, astrologia, geomanzia, magia - e rappresenterebbe perciò una ritrattazione del De occulta philosophia, del quale era già stato pubblicato l'anno precedente il primo libro, e in generale degli interessi che pure egli aveva così a lungo coltivati, In realtà egli attaccava i cattivi cultori che degradavano le discipline ermetiche - come si è visto nella sua lettera al Tritemio - e insieme, probabilmente, fingeva di essere estraneo a interessi pericolosi per la sua reputazione: infatti, nella realtà, continuò a occuparsi di «scienze occulte», fino a pubblicare l'edizione definitiva del De occulta philosophia nel luglio del 1533 a Colonia. Il De incertitudine fu condannato al rogo dai teologi della Sorbona il 2 marzo 1531 e l'Università di Lovanio considerò empie 43 proposizioni. Oltre a censurare le sue insinuazioni contro i costumi ecclesiastici e a considerare sospetta la sua definizione di Lutero come invictus haereticus e l'attribuzione al diavolo dell'invenzione del cappuccio dei frati, furono considerate senz'altro eretiche la sua condanna della venerazione delle immagini e delle cerimonie religiose, la svalutazione dei profeti e degli evangelisti, il suo scetticismo sull'utilità della teologia che pretenderebbe di definire Dio e, in generale, sull'utilizzo delle scienze per giustificare la religione.

De natura differentiis et causis eorum, qui dormientes ambulant, vigilantium opera, eaq. Leipzig, Valentinus Voegelinus (colophon: printed by Michael Lanzenberger), 1595. 2 parts in 1 volume. Small 8vo (14 x 9 cm). With woodcut printer’s device on title-page (repeated above the colophon).19th-century half vellum.

      - Crowley 7; Poletti, p. 105; cf. Adams H-997-998; Durling 2460. Rare first combined edition of two medical works by Jacob Horst (1537-1600), professor of medicine at the Julius University in Helmstadt, first published separately by the same publisher in 1593 and appearing here for the second time. The first work is of special interest, being a rare early treatise on dentistry. In it Horst tried to solve the famous mystery of the golden tooth. The second work is on sleepwalking, a subject which from old seems to have greatly concerned parents and teachers, since much attention was given to it in early medical and educational literature. There current publication however seems to be largely overlooked in the literature.With an owner's inscription on title-page dated 1598. Browned throughout, with some water stains, and a small hole in the gutter of 10 leaves in the second part; a fair copy. Binding in good condition, worn spine with a small tear.

         Opera per doctissimum Philosophum Ioannem Baptistam Memum patritium Venetum, mathematicharumque artium in urbe Veneta lectorum publicum. De Graeco in Latinum Traducta & Noviter impressa.

      Venice: Bernardinus Bindonus, 1537. 'One of the greatest scientific books of antiquity' (Stillwell). Very rare editio princeps of Apollonius' Conics, the basic treatise on the subject, "which recognized and named the ellipse, parabola, and hyperbola" (Horblit 4, on the later edition of 1566). This is one of the three greatest mathematical treatises of antiquity, alongside those of Euclid and Archimedes. This first edition is very rare, preceding by 29 years the Commandino edition of the same four books canonized by Horblit (and taken over by Dibner and Norman), and this first edition is known to have been used by Tartaglia, Benedetti and, however critically, Maurolico (see Rose). Books I-IV were the only ones to survive in the original Greek; Borelli discovered Arabic versions of books V-VII and published them, in Latin translation, in 1661. "Apollonius (ca. 245-190 BC) was the last of the great Greek mathematicians, whose treatise on conic sections represents the final flowering of Greek mathematics" (Hutchinson's DSB, p. 16). Apollonius synthesized the work of his predecessors as well as contributing new methods and techniques of his own. "For a modern reader, the Conics is among the most difficult mathematical works of antiquity. Both form and content are far from tractable. The author's rigorous rhetorical exposition is wearing for those used to modern symbolism... Apollonius has, in a way, suffered from his own success: his treatise became canonical and eliminated its predecessors, so that we cannot judge by direct comparison its superiority to them in mathematical rigor, consistency and generality. But the work amply repays closer study; and the attention paid to it by some of the most eminent mathematicians of the seventeenth century (one need only mention Fermat, Newton and Halley) reinforces the verdict of Apollonius' contemporaries, who, according to Geminus, in admiration for his Conics gave him the title of The Great Geometer... "The first real impulse towards advances in mathematics given by the study of the works of Apollonius occurred in Europe in the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries... It is hard to underestimate the effect of Apollonius on the brilliant French mathematicians of the seventeenth century, Descartes, Mersenne, Fermat, and even Desargues and Pascal, despite their very different approach. Newton's notorious predilection for the study of conics, using Apollonian methods, was not a chance personal taste... It was not until Poncelet's work in the early nineteenth century... revived the study of projective geometry that the relevance of much of Apollonius' work to some basic modern theory was realized... "Hipparchus and Ptolemy absorbed his work and improved on it. The result, the Ptolemaic system, is one of the most impressive monuments of ancient science (and certainly the longest-lived), and Apollonius' work contributed some of its essential parts" (DSB I 97-99). The text was passed down by Eutocius, a Byzantine mathematician of the Justinian period, and translated from the Greek by Giovanni Battista Memo (1466-1536), Public Professor of Mathematics at Venice. A patrician who held a number of important government posts, he was instrumental in establishing the mathematical chair of which he became the first occupant in 1530. This is his principal work, published just a year after his death by his nephew. The Greek manuscript he employed is unknown, though Rose suggests it might have been the one which once belonged to the family of the present work's dedicatee, Cardinal Marino Grimani. Rose groups Memo with the successors of Valla, Zamberti and Gaurico, who applied the new philology to Greek scientific treatises, especially mathematics. Only five copies located in America (Harvard, Louisville, MIT, UNC, Yale). Brunet I.347; Essling II.667-8; Riccardi I 247 ('raro libro'); Sander 480; Stillwell II.139; not in Adams; Heath, T.R., Apollonius of Perga: Treatise on Conic Sections (Oxford, 1896); Horblit 4, Dibner 101 and Norman 57 for the Commandino edition of 1566; P.L. Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, 52-3 et seq. Folio (306 x 220), pp [1] 2-88 [1] [1:blank], contemporary vellum, small red stamp to the bottom margin of title and colophon covered, woodcut title printed in red and black with a portrait of a mathematician in the centre surrounded by woodcut border showing 11 pairs of ancient scientists and philosophers, numerous geometrical diagrams in text and portrait of St. Peter beneath colophon at end.

         Annulorum trium diversi generis instrumentorum astronomicorum componendi ratio atque usus. De compositione Metheoroscopii Joannis de Regiomonte epistola. Annulus Boneti de Latis. Compositio alterius annuli auctore M.T.

      Marburg, Eucharius Cervicornus, 1537 - 4 parts in one vol, 4to (205 x 155 mm), ff [4] 40 (gatherings K and I transposed], with large historiated woodcut initials, large woodcut of armillary sphere on title, woodcut illustrations on other three part titles, numerous woodcut illustrations of instruments and diagrams in text, and woodcut printer's device on verso of last leaf; two small patches of text on A1 lifted and on facing page due to glue adhesion, but recoverable, paper repair to lower blank margin of I3, otherwise a large, fresh copy in old vellum.First edition of this assembly of texts on an astronomical instrument, a ring-dial that was a precursor of the equatorial. It was intended as a navigational aid and could be adjusted for different latitudes including, according to the author, the Moluccas and Hispaniola. Dyrander had published his first account a few months earlier in 1536 (Novi annuli astronomici, Marburg 1536), but quickly reprinted it with three other related texts in order to defend himself against the charges of plagiarism. These texts describe other forms of astronomical ring-dials The first is a letter from Regiomontanus to Cardinal Bessarion, the second a short treatise by Bonetus de Latis, Jewish physician to Pope Alexander VI, and the third by an anonymous author 'M.T.'.Johannes Dryander (1500-1560) was a Marburg professor of mathematics and medicine, a noted pre-Vesalian anatomist, and astronomer. In 1536 he published his Anatomia capitis humani, the first major work on the anatomy of the head, based upon his own dissections. It was illustrated by the German artist Hans Brosamer. This was followed by an expanded anatomy of the whole human body published the following year.

Basel: J. Herwagen, 1537. First Basel edition; this is the first complete assemblage of the Euclidean texts, with printings of both Campanus of Navara's and Bartolomeo Zamberti's versions. It also contains the new Preface by Philipp Melanchthon which in many copies, according to Thomas-Stanford, was removed by the censor. This Herwagen edition contains all the major Euclidean texts: the Elements, Phaenomena, Catoptrica, Data, and the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso, which appears here for the first time. The version of Books I-XV of the Elements by Campanus of Navara, (d. 1296) was the one generally used in the later Middle Ages and was employed in the first edition of 1482. It was frequently reprinted (at least 14 times in the 15th and 16th centuries). Our edition also contains the version of Bartolomeo Zamberti (b. ca. 1473). "Zamberti was most conscious of the advantages he believed to accrue from his working from a Greek text. This enabled him, he claimed, to add things hitherto missing and properly to arrange and prove again much found in the version of Campanus."-D.S.B., IV, p. 448. Also included is the first printing of the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso. "No work by Euclid on mechanics is extant in Greek, nor is he credited with any mechanical works by ancient writers. According to Arabic sources, however, he wrote a Book on the Heavy and the Light, and when Hervagius was about to publish his 1537 edition there was brought to him a mutilated fragment, De levi et ponderoso, which he included as one of Euclid's works?It is the most precise exposition that we possess of the Aristotelian dynamics of freely moving bodies."-D.S.B., IV, p. 431. "Applies geometric methods of proof to theorems relative to freely falling bodies. Possibly a fragment of the original text. Authenticity questioned, but inconclusively. A translation presumably based upon an Arabic version."-Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing 1450-1550, 750.

Es war nicht etwas ganz Anderes, was er unternahm, in Vergleichung mit seinen Vorgängern, aber er that es besser, als die Meisten unter ihnen (Savigny, Geschichte des römischen Rechts im Mittelalter VI, 157). Dass man Bartolus zeitweise als den größten Juristen schlechthin ansah, zeigt sich auch darin, dass im italienischen Theater der Name Bartolo für die Figur des Juristen (Figur des Dottore in der Commedia dell'Arte) üblich wurde. - Einband etw. beschabt u. fleckig. Einige Bll. mit kl. Randläsuren. Durchg. unterschiedlich wasserrandig. Etw. gebräunt u. fleckig. - Adams B 310 u. B 309 beide Teile nicht im BM STC, Italian Books.

      Woodcut printer's device on title & another on verso of last leaf. Many woodcut diagrams throughout and numerous fine & large woodcut initials. 4 p.l., 587, [1] pp. Folio, cont. blind-stamped panelled pigskin over beveled wooden boards (minor worming at beginning, touching some letters), orig. clasps (one defective) and catches, 19th-cent. morocco lettering pieces on spine. Basel: J. Herwagen, 1537. First Basel edition; this is the first complete assemblage of the Euclidean texts, with printings of both Campanus of Navara's and Bartolomeo Zamberti's versions. It also contains the new Preface by Philipp Melanchthon which in many copies, according to Thomas-Stanford, was removed by the censor. This Herwagen edition contains all the major Euclidean texts: the Elements, Phaenomena, Catoptrica, Data, and the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso, which appears here for the first time. The version of Books I-XV of the Elements by Campanus of Navara, (d. 1296) was the one generally used in the later Middle Ages and was employed in the first edition of 1482. It was frequently reprinted (at least 14 times in the 15th and 16th centuries). Our edition also contains the version of Bartolomeo Zamberti (b. ca. 1473). "Zamberti was most conscious of the advantages he believed to accrue from his working from a Greek text. This enabled him, he claimed, to add things hitherto missing and properly to arrange and prove again much found in the version of Campanus."-D.S.B., IV, p. 448. Also included is the first printing of the Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso. "No work by Euclid on mechanics is extant in Greek, nor is he credited with any mechanical works by ancient writers. According to Arabic sources, however, he wrote a Book on the Heavy and the Light, and when Hervagius was about to publish his 1537 edition there was brought to him a mutilated fragment, De levi et ponderoso, which he included as one of Euclid's works…It is the most precise exposition that we possess of the Aristotelian dynamics of freely moving bodies."-D.S.B., IV, p. 431. "Applies geometric methods of proof to theorems relative to freely falling bodies. Possibly a fragment of the original text. Authenticity questioned, but inconclusively. A translation presumably based upon an Arabic version."-Stillwell, The Awakening Interest in Science during the First Century of Printing 1450-1550, 750. A fine copy from the Oettingen-Wallerstein library with their stamp on title-page. Modern bookplates of H. Staigmüller and David L. DiLaura. ? Thomas-Stanford 9.
