        Senetio, Plate 286

      Basel 1542 - Herbals are books containing the names and descriptions of plants and their medicinal properties. The herbal had declined during the Middle Ages, western European herbals of that era were based on the works of classical authors, in particular Pedanios Dioscorides, the ancient Greek writer who was the father of medical botany. This would change with the publication of Leonhart Fuchs’ illustrated herbal De historia stirpium commentarii insigne. The plan and organization of the herbal was entirely original with Fuchs, although the work did include some material derived from his Classical predecessors. Fuchs’De historia stirpium represented an impressive first step from medieval superstition to modern botany. Leonhart Fuchs, a German doctor of medicine, deplored the terrible state of medical practice during his lifetime. Most doctors of his time relied on information from illiterate apothecaries, whom were, in turn, depending upon the peasants who gathered roots and herbs for them. Fuchs realized that patients could easily be poisoned rather than cured because of improper identification of plants. Therefore he compiled this herbal to improve the German pharmacopoeia with a reference of accurate illustrations and identifications of medicinal herbs in both German and Latin. The result was a book of great splendor, without equal among sixteenth-century herbals. It is illustrated with 511 hand-colored woodcut figures, all original and depicted from life. Fuchs looked to living plants for his illustrations, a departure from common practice at that time, but then “improved” them by removing any natural imperfections and by showing a plant in the flowering and fruiting stages simultaneously. These figures established a standard of botanical illustration that has lasted to the present day, and more than 100 species were illustrated for the first time (including 12 New World plants such as maize, kidney bean, chili pepper, cactus, and tobacco). During Fuchs’ lifetime, the herbal and its various abridgments went through 39 printings in Latin, German, French, Spanish and Dutch. This hand colored wood-cut engraving, 14.25" x 9.25", is in excellent condition with evidence of verso page text. Senetio, now spelled Senecio, is commonly referred to as Ragworts or Groundsels. This engraving is original hand coloring from 1542 and has perfect oxidation of the copper in the green pigment, which goes idyllically through the paper. De Historia Stirpium is one of the earliest legitimate medicinal textbooks of its time.

        Eutyci Augustini Niphi Philothei Suessani in libru Destructio Destructionum Auerrois Comentarii . Codicillus de Sensu agente

      [apud] Jacobum Givnctam, Lyon 1542 - (ii); ff 346; (ii) pages. Tiny hole in title-page, lacking final blank leaf. Nineteenth century continental dark green quarter morocco, one corner bumped. With the book plate of the educational reformer and founder of the Dartington Trust L. K. Elmhirst. The Aristotelian scholar Eutycus Augustine Niphus was introduced to the text of Averroes' work 'Destructio Destructionum' by his friend the philosopher Jerome Bernardus of Venice and saw that it was 'full of benefit'. As well he might; for though the work was badly translated and difficult to understand, it was by the great 12th century Arab polymath Averroes, himself an Aristotelian scholar. Under pressure from his friend, Niphus agreed to present his own interpretation, which in the text follows a series of contentions between Averroes and his fellow philosopher Algazel. Size: 8vo.

        Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula

      Heinrich Petri in the 'Geographia Universalis', [Basel 1542 - The first state of the earliest reasonably obtainable map to focus on the depiction of the entire continent of Africa, and a veritable masterpiece of Renaissance cartography This highly important map represents the earliest reasonably obtainable map to depict the entire continent of Africa. Africa XVIII, Nova Tabula , is a fantastic visual synergy of archaic imagination and recent exploration. The overall shape of the continent is quite well defined, having been extensively explored by the Portuguese since the time of Prince Henry the Navigator in the mid-fifteenth-century, a point highlighted by the appearance of a caravel in the lower part of the map. Africa's various kingdoms are denoted by pictorial symbols of a crown and sceptre. Following Ptolemaic tradition, the Nile has its source in a series of lakes that lie at the foot of the mysterious Mountains of the Moon. The land around the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa is embellished by the appearance of an elephant, and exotic parrots occupy trees in Angola. Most amusingly, near the coast of east Africa, the "Monoculi," or one-eyed man imagined by Classical writers sits in wait for some hypothetical European visitor. Münster was a brilliant polymath and one of the most important intellectuals of the Renaissance era. Educated at Tübingen, his surviving college notebooks, Kollegienbuch , reveal a mind of insatiable curiosity, especially with regards to cosmography. Münster later became a professor of Hebrew at Heidelberg, and then from 1529 at the University of Basle. In the 1530s, he turned his attentions to translating Ptolemy's Geography , adding new material that related to the lands newly discovered in Africa, the Americas and Asia. The result was the publication of his highly regarded Geographia Universalis , first printed in 1540. The present map is from the second edition, but still represents the first-state of the map, as the same unaltered woodblock from the initial printing was employed in the production of the second edition. Münster was also a trend-setter in his ideas regarding design and layout of maps, and he was one of the first to create space on his woodblocks for the insertion of place names in metal type. Münster later published his Cosmographia (1544, revised 1550), a monumental encyclopedic book of contemporary knowledge and legend that became one of the most widely read books in Europe.

        Ricinus, Plate 340

      Basel 1542 - Herbals are books containing the names and descriptions of plants and their medicinal properties. The herbal had declined during the Middle Ages, western European herbals of that era were based on the works of classical authors, in particular Pedanios Dioscorides, the ancient Greek writer who was the father of medical botany. This would change with the publication of Leonhart Fuchs&#146; illustrated herbal De historia stirpium commentarii insigne. The plan and organization of the herbal was entirely original with Fuchs, although the work did include some material derived from his Classical predecessors. Fuchs&#146; De historia stirpium represented an impressive first step from medieval superstition to modern botany. Leonhart Fuchs, a German doctor of medicine, deplored the terrible state of medical practice during his lifetime. Most doctors of his time relied on information from illiterate apothecaries, whom were, in turn, depending upon the peasants who gathered roots and herbs for them. Fuchs realized that patients could easily be poisoned rather than cured because of improper identification of plants. Therefore he compiled this herbal to improve the German pharmacopoeia with a reference of accurate illustrations and identifications of medicinal herbs in both German and Latin. The result was a book of great splendor, without equal among sixteenth-century herbals. It is illustrated with 511 hand-colored woodcut figures, all original and depicted from life. Fuchs looked to living plants for his illustrations, a departure from common practice at that time, but then &#147;improved&#148; them by removing any natural imperfections and by showing a plant in the flowering and fruiting stages simultaneously. These figures established a standard of botanical illustration that has lasted to the present day, and more than 100 species were illustrated for the first time (including 12 New World plants such as maize, kidney bean, chili pepper, cactus, and tobacco). During Fuchs&#146; lifetime, the herbal and its various abridgments went through 39 printings in Latin, German, French, Spanish and Dutch. This hand colored wood-cut engraving, 14.25" x 9.25", is in excellent condition with a slight water stain in the lower left corner and evidence of verso page text. Ricinus is commonly known as the Castorl Oil Plant and is used as an oil and for medicinal purposes. This engraving is original hand coloring from 1542 and has perfect oxidation of the copper in the green pigment, which goes idyllically through the paper. De Historia Stirpium is one of the earliest legitimate medicinal textbooks of its time.
