Galen
1541 Galenus, Claudius {Opera} Septima Classis. Title within pictorial woodcut border, beautiful woodcut initials and head-pieces. 285 leaves. Part 7 (only) of his works. Edited by Agostino Gadaldini. Venice: Lucaeantonij Iuntae Third Giunta edition of the writings of Galen in Latin translation, edited by Giovanni Battista da Monte. [This is the first edition to include contributions by Andreas Vesalius, who revised the translation of 3 anatomical tracts in Prima classis {not Septima Classis, part 7) dealing with the nervous and circulatory systems and anatomical procedures.] Galen was the greatest physician of ancient Rome. Whereas Hippocrates laid the foundation of Greek Medicine, Galen further developed its theory and practice, and carried Greco-Roman medicine to its zenith. Galen was a master of medical philosophy, and considered the study of philosophy to be essential to a physician's training. Philosophy enables the physician to discern between truth and illusion, or between reality and mere surface appearances, which is so important in diagnosis. It's also necessary for putting treatment on a sound ethical foundation. Although he wasn't a Christian, Galen was a monotheist and believed that the body was the physical vehicle for the indwelling soul. Galen's monotheism greatly enhanced the acceptance of his medical theories and teachings by later generations of Muslim and Christian scholars and physicians. Galen's chief contributions to the theory of Greek Medicine were his theories of the three varieties of pneuma, or vital energy, and the Four Faculties of the organis … [Click Below for Full Description]

GESNER, Conrad
1541. 4 p.l., 281, [15] pp. 8vo, cont. vellum over boards (spine attractively rebacked with leather), trace of ties, spine gilt. Basel: R. Wynter, 1541. First edition of Gesner's very rare first book (he had two earlier appearances in books, one as editor and the other as contributor). Gesner published this work at the age of 25, and it reflects his lifelong interest in botany and classification. This is an alphabetical list of plants' names compiled from the works of authors on medical topics in antiquity and in the early Middle Ages. The alphabetical arrangement of plants both by their tradition Latin names and the trade names used by pharmacists, as well as the handy format of the book, made it popular amongst physicians and apothecaries. Before this book was published, there was often no apparent connection between the names of plants from Greece and southern Italy, described by the ancient writers on botany, and the trees, shrubs, and herbs that Gesner and his friends could find in Switzerland, Germany, or France, and which were known by various vernacular names. To make matters worse, the apothecaries had their own fancy Latin names for the herbs and minerals from which they prepared drugs. It was Gesner's avowed intention in the present work to bring order into this taxonomic chaos and to provide multilingual indexes to plant names. "Fascinated by botany as a youth, Gesner continued his studies in that field at Lausanne and Montpellier.Gesner was virtually the only botanist of his time to grasp the importance of floral structures as a means of establishing a systemat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Basel: Johann Froben, 1541. Second edition (first printed 1537). 299, 305-323, [8] pp. a-r4 s6 t-z, A-E4 F6 G-M4. Prnter's device on title-page and verso of final leaf; profusely illustrated with wooodcuts, many full-page. 1 vols. Small 4to. De Re Navali. Lazare de Baïf (1496-1547) was a French humanist, classical scholar, translator of Sophocles' Electra, and ambassador to Venice, who flourished in the enlightened reign of François I, to whom his delightfully illustrated book on captivities and the naval science of the ancients is dedicated; the book is edited by Charles Estienne. His close connection to the classical humanists in François I's circle has led some to speculate that the fine woocuts herein came from the worshop of Geoffroy Tory. In addition, two other works are included: one, also by Baïf, on costumes and urns; and one, by Antonio Telesion, "De coloribus" Adams B36. Modern half calf and marbled boards, red morocco spine label. Institutional bookplate, and earlier library stamp on title-page and p. 100.

1541. Arber, pp. 113-114; DSB II, p. 525-527; Hunt 251; Nissen, BBI 103; Norman lib. 141 (this copy); Stafleu & Cowan 368. First and only edition of the magnum opus of the botanist and physician Jean Bauhin (1541-1613), completed after his death by his son-in-law Jean Henri Cherler, edited by Dominique Chabrée and published at the expense of the Swiss jurist Friedrich Ludwig Graffenried. It gives an encyclopaedic account of over 5000 plants and is divided into 40 books, the first treating fruit trees, with life-size images of various apples, pears etc., and the last treating fungi and tubers, likewise illustrated."Bauhin's reputation as a botanist rests upon the encyclopedic Historia plantarum universalis (1650-1651), which was not published until thirty-seven years after his death. It completely overshadows the works published during his lifetime, which give only a limited indication of his originality. . Despite the delay in publication, the work was not obsolete. It contained the description and synonyms of 5,226 plants, primarily from Europe, but with some Eastern and American floras. This represented the fruits of the explorations of Bauhin and his informants, and compilation from ancient and contemporary literature. It also indicates the great progress of botany in the sixteenth century: Brunfels had described 240 plants in 1532; the less accurate Historia plantarum generalis of 1587 reached 3000; the only works to describe more than this number in the succeeding century were by Jean Bauhin and his brother Gaspard" (DSB).

Postel Guillaume (Gulielmus Postellus)
Nicolini da Sabbio, Giovanni Antonio Nicolini da Sabbio, Pietro. RARA RISTAMPA VENEZIANA DELLA PRIMA EDIZ. originale uscita a Parigi lo stesso anno presso Michel Vascosan et Galiot du Pré. Si tratta di un ESEMPLARE CENSURATO, dal quale volutamente è stato cancellato il nome dell''autore dal frontespizio e strappata la sua prefazione. Guillaume Postel (1510-1581), umanista, orientalista e mistico francese, dal 1538 fu professore reale al Collegio di Francia di lingua ebraica ed araba, che perfezionò nel corso di una missione ufficiale in Turchia al seguito dell''ambasciatore francese Jean de la Forêt, ma nel 1542 dovette rifugiarsi in Svizzera per aver difeso pubblicamente il suo protettore, il Cancelliere di Francia Guillaume Poyet (ca. 1473-1548), dedicatario dell''opera, caduto in disgrazia ed arrestato. Primo traduttore in latino di testi cabalistici ebraici come lo Zohar e il Sefer Yetzirah, e autore della Restitutio rerum omnium conditarum, opera millenaristica, Postel fu per questo espulso dalla Compagnia di Gesù e posto sotto inchiesta dall''Inquisizione: dopo un periodo di prigionia, fu costretto a risiedere, in domicilio coatto, a Saint-Martin-des-Champs a Parigi, dove morì nel 1581.

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius
1541.. Woodcut map. The “first map devoted to America to appear in an atlas” (Burden). The map is centred on the Atlantic Ocean, and shows the new discoveries in the Americas. North and South America are joined together as one landmass (according to Deák, it is the first map to do so). South America is populated by a group of cannibals and an opossum, albeit one made to look much more ferocious than in reality. The Spanish flag is shown planted in “Isabella Insul”, or Cuba, where Columbus had landed on his first expedition on behalf of the Spanish crown. Columbus is also mentioned by name in the large text in South America as the discoverer of the New World. This map first appeared in Martin Waldseemüller's 1513 edition of Ptolemy's ‘Geographia'. It was revised by Laurent Fries in 1522, who added the vignettes based on the voyages of Amerigo Vespucci, some nomenclature and further detail on Columbus' voyages in the scroll beneath Hispaniola. He also changed the inscription on America from ‘Terra Incognita' to ‘Terra Nova'. The verso text gives more details of Columbus' discoveries and concludes with a condemnation of the use of ‘America' as the European name for the new continent, arguing that Columbus was there first. In fact, Waldseemüller himself had popularised the name ‘America' through his world map, produced to accompany the ‘Cosmographia introductio', published in collaboration with Matthias Ringmann and Jean Basin de Sendacour in 1507. It contains the first printed instance of the name ‘America' being applied to the discoveries over the Atlantic: “The fourth … [Click Below for Full Description]

PTOLEMAEUS, Claudius; Michael VILLANOVANUS, known as 'SERVETUS and Laurent FRIES
[Vienna and Lyon,: Gaspar Trechsel for Hugues de La Porte, 1541. [Vienna and Lyon,: Gaspar Trechsel for Hugues de La Porte,, 1541. 1541]. Double-page woodcut map. Titled 'Tabula terrae nouvae' above the accompanying text on the verso, this map is from the second edition of Ptolemy's 'Geographia' to be published with Pirkheimer's translation edited by Michael Villanovanus, better known as Servetus (1511-1553), born at Villanueva, in Aragon, Spain. A reduced version of Martin Waldseemuller's 'Tabula Terre Nove', this map of the New World shows the Atlantic coast of the Americas from latitudes 35 degrees south to 55 degrees north. While similarly including an apparent Gulf of Mexico, the Florida peninsula, Cuba as Isabella and Hispaniola, and across the Atlantic portions of the British Isles, Spain and Portugal and Africa, there are some notable differences: the Columbus name PARIAS found in North America, misplaced from South America, the addition of a Spanish flag over Cuba, and a scene in South America depicting cannibals and an opossum both of which had been reported by Vespucci, 'Terra Incognita' has been replaced by 'Terra Nova', and the reference to America's discovery by Columbus is repeated. A large area of text below Hispaniola contains a description of that island's location, its discovery by Columbus, and its products. (Burden) While working as an editor for the publisher Trechsel, Servetus wrote the preface and many of the modern descriptions for the versos of the maps in his atlas. For his writings against the Holy Trinity and infant baptism, Servetus was bur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage sur l'organisation politique de la Grèce antique de Guillaume Postel (1510-1581), philosophe, historien et mystique. "Ce livre constitue le premier ouvrage de réflexion de Guillaume Postel qui jusqu'ici avait publié trois ouvrages de 'linguistique' et un ouvrage de géographie. La dédicace à Guillaume Poyet, qui est Chancelier du royaume depuis 1538 lui permet de faire état de ses relations avec Guillaume Budé et Lazare de Baïf, de rappeler les vains efforts du Chancelier en faveur des salaires des professeurs du Collège des Trois-Langues ( ). Ce livre est le seul où Postel fasse état de son titre 'd'interprete' en mathématiques et langues étrangères." (Cl. Postel). Il fut réimprimé à Venise la même année et plusieurs fois par la suite. Le texte latin est parsemé d'expressions en grec et en hébreu. Annotations manuscrites de l'époque dans les marges. Traces de mouillures marginales aux premiers cahiers.

Galen
1541 Galenus, Claudius {Opera} Septima Classis. Title within pictorial woodcut border, beautiful woodcut initials and head-pieces. 285 leaves. Part 7 (only) of his works. Edited by Agostino Gadaldini. Venice: Lucaeantonij Iuntae Third Giunta edition of the writings of Galen in Latin translation, edited by Giovanni Battista da Monte. [This is the first edition to include contributions by Andreas Vesalius, who revised the translation of 3 anatomical tracts in Prima classis {not Septima Classis, part 7) dealing with the nervous and circulatory systems and anatomical procedures.] Galen was the greatest physician of ancient Rome. Whereas Hippocrates laid the foundation of Greek Medicine, Galen further developed its theory and practice, and carried Greco-Roman medicine to its zenith. Galen was a master of medical philosophy, and considered the study of philosophy to be essential to a physician's training. Philosophy enables the physician to discern between truth and illusion, or between reality and mere surface appearances, which is so important in diagnosis. It's also necessary for putting treatment on a sound ethical foundation. Although he wasn't a Christian, Galen was a monotheist and believed that the body was the physical vehicle for the indwelling soul. Galen's monotheism greatly enhanced the acceptance of his medical theories and teachings by later generations of Muslim and Christian scholars and physicians. Galen's chief contributions to the theory of Greek Medicine were his theories of the three varieties of pneuma, or vital energy, and the Four Faculties of the organis … [Click Below for Full Description]

SÜDOSTASIEN ( East India ):
1541, 28 x ( 22 - 28 ) Trapezform Klassische ptolemäische Karte von Südostasien vom "Sinus Gangeticus" (Golf von Bengalen) im Westen und der von Ptolemäus vermuteten Verbindung zum Südkontinent jenseits des Magnus Sinus. Wie alle Meere war auch der Indische Ozean in der Ptolemäischen Geografie ein Binnenmeer eingeschlossen von Afrika, Asien und dem unbekannten Südkontinent (Terra australis incognita). Die Karte zeigt demnach Bangladesch, Myanmar, Thailand und Malaisia sowie Kambotscha und Vietnam. Bei der mit "Aurea Chersone" an der Südspitze der Malaiischen Halbinsel bezeichnete Landmasse handelt es sich möglicherweise um Sumatra. "The Golden Chersonese is generally accepted to be Malaya, which Ptolemy considered and important place . . .[It] may in fact be Sumatra, portrayed here without the strait that separates it from Malaya. If this is so, it would explain both the shape of the Malay Peninsula and also its extension into the Southern Hemisphere." (Suarez). Die kleine mit "Sinus Permimulicus" bezeichnete Bucht östlich der Aurea Chersone wäre demnach der Golf von Thailand. Aus der 1541 bei Trechsel in Vienne/Dauphine gedruckten und von Michael Servetus herausgegebenen Ausgabe mit Seitenzahl 25, auf der Rückseite lat. Text.

(Argentorati (Strassbourg) apud Balthassarum Beck), 1541. Small 8vo. Contemporary full calf binding with brass clasps. Professionally and neatly re-backed. Title-page a bit soiled and three very small holes to first leaf of text, otherwise internally very nice, clean and fresh. Early 20th century book-plate to front free end-paper (depicting Aristotle and Plato and with Greek writing). One full-page and 7 half-page woodcut illustrations in the text. (4), 183, (4 - Index) ff. ¶ The very rare first edition edition thus, being the first edition edited by the celebrated Strasbourg physician Walter Hermann Ryff (reprinted in Venice in 1542). The book contains two works: Lull's "De secretis naturae" and Albert the Great's "De mineralibus & rebus metallicus", which is among the authentic writings of the author; both works are of the utmost importance and greatly influenced Renaissance philosophy and science: Lull invented an "art of finding truth" (often in Lullism referred to as "The Art"), which centuries later stimulated Leibnitz' dream of a universal algebra. Lull applied this to basically all subjects studied at the Medieval Universities. "Lull's metaphysics worked a revolution in the history of philosophy" (The Cambridge History of Renaissance Philosophy, p. 548). <br><br>"The production of pseudo-Lullian alchemical texts culminated at the end of the fourteenth century with an important work, the "Liber de secretis naturæ sive de quinta essential". At that time the formation of this corpus of texts entered a second stage. In the "Liber de secretis naturæ" the alchemical prac … [Click Below for Full Description]

MESUE Jean
" - S.n., [Parisii?] (Paris) 1541, in Folio (31,4x22cm), cccxxxv ff, Un Vol. relié. - Première édition très rare de ces uvres de Jean Mesue. Absent à la BNF et aux catalogues français ainsi qu'à la British Library. Un exemplaire à Manchester. Absent à Brunet et à Graesse. Selon Manchester, l'auteur véritable serait celui que l'on nomme le Pseudo Mesué, pour le distinguer de Jean Mesué. Pseudo Mesué serait un médecin arabe du XIIe qui aurait emprunté le nom de l'illustre médecin du IXe par souci de gloire et parce que ses recherches et travaux s'orientaient dans la même voie, l'utilisation des aliments ; c'est ainsi que Pseudo Mesué est aujourd'hui considéré comme le père de la confiserie moderne, car il employait le sucre à des fins thérapeutiques en utilisant certaines recettes anciennes, prises notamment chez Jean Mesué et les grands anciens. Edition à caractères gothiques imprimée sur deux colonnes. Nombreuses lettrines. Page de titre dans un encadrement (grande frise renaissance avec putti et rinceaux). Plein Velin d'époque rigide de réemploi teinté brun (écriture manuscrite visible sur les plats). Le dos à nerfs a été restauré au XIXe.

Edition Originale très rare de cet ouvrage sur l'organisation politique de la Grèce antique de Guillaume Postel (1510-1581), philosophe, historien et mystique. "Ce livre constitue le premier ouvrage de réflexion de Guillaume Postel qui jusqu'ici avait publié trois ouvrages de 'linguistique' et un ouvrage de géographie. La dédicace à Guillaume Poyet, qui est Chancelier du royaume depuis 1538 lui permet de faire état de ses relations avec Guillaume Budé et Lazare de Baïf, de rappeler les vains efforts du Chancelier en faveur des salaires des professeurs du Collège des Trois-Langues ( ). Ce livre est le seul où Postel fasse état de son titre 'd'interprete' en mathématiques et langues étrangères." (Cl. Postel). Il fut réimprimé à Venise la même année et plusieurs fois par la suite. Le texte latin est parsemé d'expressions en grec et en hébreu. Annotations manuscrites de l'époque dans les marges. Traces de mouillures marginales aux premiers cahiers.

De Baif, Lazare
ex officina Roberti Stephani typographi regii (Parisiis: excudebat Rob. Stephanus Hebraicarum et Latinarum literarum typographus regius, 1541 Id. April.). 8vo (170x108 mm), modern printed paper binding; pp. 68, [12]. Woodcut mark on t.-p. This children's book deals with ancient Roman dress (from hats to shoes, incl. carpets, etc). It was edited by Charles Estienne (whose name is in the preface); at that time, he was tutor of J.A. de Baif, Lazare's son. Lazare de Baïf (1496-1547) was a French diplomat and humanist. His natural son, Jean-Antoine de Baïf, was born in Venice, while Lazare was French ambassador there. He published a translation of the Electra of Sophocles in 1537, and afterwards a version of the Hecuba. He was an elegant writer of Latin verse, and is commended by Joachim du Bellay as having introduced certain valuable words into the French language. Charles Estienne (1504-1564) was an early exponent of the science of anatomy in France. Charles was a younger brother of Robert Estienne I, the famous printer, and son to Henri, who Latinized the family name as Stephanus. He married Geneviève de Berly. After the usual humanistic training he studied medicine, and took his doctor's degree at Paris. He was for a time tutor to Jean-Antoine de Baïf, the future poet. References: IT\ICCU\BVEE\013094.

Henri Petri, Basilea, 1541 - 1545. Realizzata a cura di B. Pirckheimer, Tip. H. Petrum. Incisione su legno, cm 32 x 39 circa (il foglio poiché non è visibile la battuta della lastra), recente ma ottima coloritura. Tavola tolemaica in posizione trapezoidale, inserita nella "Geographia" di Tolomeo e ripresa nell'edizione dello stesso Munster e in alcune edizioni della "Geographia" di Strabone. Titolo in alto, al centro, extramargine, "Tabula Italiae", ai lati del titolo le numerazioni delle pagine, la 278 e la 279; al verso "Tabula Italiam et Corsicam complectens, libro Quinto e Sexto Strab. Inseruiens" e la numerazione della pagina, la 277; margine graduato su tutto il perimetro, senza scale grafiche e senza reticolato. Questa carta fu stampata nel 1541, 1542 e 1545; nel 1552 con titolo esterno "Italia et Corsica, sexta Europae tabula"; nel 1552 e nel 1571 (tavola n. 7 della "Geographia" di Strabone, col titolo esterno "Italie et Corsica, sexta Europae tabula"; tutte le edizioni furono realizzate a Basilea.

TOLOMEO CLAUDIO.
1541. Incisione in legno, con bella coloritura a mano di vecchia data, mm 330x440. Bella carta raffigurante la Sicilia, la Sardegna, la Corsica e tutto il Tirreno meridionale. Titolo entro cartiglio in alto. Fascinosa carta geografica tratta da "Geographicae enarrationes libri octo", opera curata da Servetus e stampata da Treschel. Claudio Tolomeo pubblicò la sua "Geografia" nel 150 d.C. ca. in greco; portata in Italia da Costantinopoli nel XIII secolo e tradotta in latino, assunse un'enorme importanza tanto da divenire base per tutta la cartografia medievale e rinascimentale. Dal 1477, anno dell'editio princeps, l'opera venne pubblicata in più edizioni, ogni volta con migliorie e aumenti dell'apparato iconografico. Bell'esemplare con piccoli difetti restaurati lungo la piega centrale; qualche piccolo restauro a minime mende marginali.Laurent Fries (Laurentius Frisius), viaggiò moltissimo, studiò fisica e matematica a Vienna, Padova, Montpellier e Colmar, prima di stabilirsi a Strasburgo. Qui, per la prima volta, si hanno sue notizie come disegnatore del mappamondo di Peter Apian, pubblicato nel 1520. La mappa di Apian si basava su quella di Waldseemuller del 1507 che, senza dubbio, stuzzicò l'interesse che Fries aveva relativamente agli "atlanti tolameici" del 1513 e 1520, e lo portò ad entrare in contatto con l'editore Johannes Gruninger.
