Er studierte nach dem Besuch der Schule bzw. der Artistenfakultät in Heilbronn und Erfurt seit 1519 an der Univ.

Als Lutheraner an dieser rein kath. Hochschule indes manchen Widrigkeiten ausgesetzt, trat er zwei Jahre später die Stelle eines Leibarztes bei dem Markgrafen Georg von Brandenburg in Ansbach an, zumal dort eine protestantische Univ. errichtet werden sollte; da sich dieses Vorhaben jedoch zerschlug, kehrte er 1532 nach Ingolstadt zurück. Aus konfessionellen Gründen alsbald genötigt, wiederum in Ansbach Zuflucht zu suchen, folgte er 1535 einem Ruf an die Univ. Tübingen, wo er trotz anderweitiger ehrenvoller Angebote bis zu seinem Lebensende als angesehener und einflußreicher Prof. der Medizin wirkte.

Erasmus, Desiderius,
Basileae [Basel], apud Io. Frob[en], 1542.. Folio (35,5 x 24 cm). [4] Bl., 816 S., [14] Bl. Mit vielen figürlichen Initialen und großer Holzschnitt-Druckermarke auf dem Titel und dem Schlussblatt. Zeitgenössisches blindgeprägtes Kalbsleder über schweren Holzdeckeln mit Messingschliessen. Rücken alt, Vorsätze jüngst erneuert. Schließhaken erneuert (-aften original). Wurmlöcher, gegen Ende etwas stärker, am Rücken daher auch Ecke ausgebrochen. Zu Beginn etwas wasserrandig. Titelblatt recto mit großflächig gedeckter handschriftlicher Notiz (verso etwas durchscheinend und daher eindeutig in das 20. Jh. zu datieren), verso 1850 datierter Geschenkvermerk.. Bezzel 10a). Erschien gleichzeitig im Band 6 der Opera Omnia (=VD16 E 1869), hier jedoch mit eigenem Titel. Schöner Frobendruck in einem interessanten Einband unbekannter Provenienz mit wenigen, ehemals goldgeprägten Ornamenten verziert. Augenfällig ist sowohl ein krähender Hahn (im Zentrum des Rückdeckels), als auch eine figürliche Rolle mit Darstellungen von Venus, Iudith, Fortitudo und Lucrecia, die vor allem wegen der Schreibweise der Fortitudo "Vordidu" ungewöhnlich ist. Als einziges Pendant konnten wir eine Handschrift der SBPK Berlin ermitteln: Lat. fol. 22. Catal. Rose II 1048-1049 no. 891 (mit Beschreibung der Rolle und des Hahns). Die ornamentale Bogenrolle ist von einer solchen Feinheit, dass Sie auf Schweinsleder nicht nur Geltung kommen dürfte. Kurzum scheint der Einband weitere Aufmerksamkeit zu verdienen. Am 12. Dezember 1850 wurde der Band von Pastor Großgart aus Züsch geschenkt an den Dekan Molz in Hermeskeil ( … [Click Below for Full Description]

Al-Razi, Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Zakariyya / Arcolano, Giovanni (ed.).
Venice, heirs of Lucantonio Giunta, 1542.. Folio. (12), 509, (3) pp. With woodcut printer's device on t. p., different device on final leaf, and woodcut illustrations of various surgical tools at the end of the preliminaries. Contemp. limp vellum with ms. title to spine.. Rare edition of this commentary on the ninth book of the treatise dedicated by ar-Razi (also known as Rhazes; 850-923 or 932) to Almansor, the Prince of Chorosan (with the text). The work discusses special pathology but excluding pyrology and was one of the most popular textbooks at medical schools and faculties well into the Middle Ages (cf. Hirsch/H. I, 171). Rhazes is considered the greatest mediaeval physician next to Avicenna; he also conducted alchemical experiments. According to his biographer al-Gildaki, he was blinded for refusing to share his secrets of chemistry. - A woodcut on the final page of the preliminaries depicts 14 different surgical instruments, including a tongue depressor, a forceps, and various instruments for cauterization. Occasional slight brownstaining, but a good copy from the library of the Sicilian physician Blasio Cucuzza, with his ownership on the final page (calling him the "most learned of all Sicilian physicians in Modica, Ragusa and Syracuse") and additional note dated 10 May 1622. - Edit 16, CNCE 2340. Wellcome I, 383. Durling 250. M. H. Fikri, Treasures from The Arab Scientific Legacy in Europe (Qatar 2009) no. 46, with double-page spread illustration on p. 82f.

Marca tipografica al titolo e in fine. Piccola figura in legno raffigurante una mappa. Leggero alone nel margine bianco delle carte preliminari, ma ottima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE. Il testo dell'opera è stampato nel carattere italico conforme alle teorie fonetico-ortografiche del Tolomei, che fu poi abbandonato nelle ristampe successive. Molte delle lettere incluse in questa raccolta sono indirizzate a celebri umanisti del tempo, tra cui ricordiamo Annibal Caro, Bernardino Ochino, Luigi Alamanni, Paolo Manuzio, Pietro Aretino, Vannuccio Biringuccio, Angelo Firenzuola, Francesco Guicciardini e Lodovico Domenichi. In un'interessante lettera al conte Agostino de' Landi, datata 14 novembre 1542, Tolomei descrive l'attività e gli scopi di ricerca della romana Accademia della Virtù (cfr. M. Maylender, Storia delle accademie d'Italia, Bologna, 1926-'30, V, pp. 478-480 e J.

Dopo il '39 l'Accademia, composta per lo più da grammatici, filologi, antiquari ed archeologi, si volse allo studio del trattato di architettura di Vitruvio.

OROSIUS, Paulus.
Cologne, ex officina Iasparis Gennepaei [i.e., Gaspar Genepeu], 1542. 8°, contemporary limp vellum (remains of ties, front hinge gone) stitched on a vellum fragment of a fourteenth (?)-century gothic manuscript. Woodcut border on title-page with portrait bust at top, 3 coats of arms at foot and floral ornaments on sides. Slightly browned, light marginal dampstains toward end. Overall in fine condition. (16 ll.), 516 pp., (1 blank l.). *** Reprint of the edition of Cologne, 1536, with a new rendering of the text by J. Caesarius. This world chronicle is the first universal history still extant to be written by a native of the Iberian Peninsula. Orosius aims to demonstrate that calamities such as famine, earthquakes and pestilence were not caused by the wrath of the neglected pagan gods, and that in fact, such events had become less severe since the spread of Christianity. It had a tremendous impact on historiography through the Middle Ages. King Alfred is reputed to have translated it into Old English. Orosius (b. ca. 390, d. after 431), a native of Braga (some say of Tarragona), was a friend of St. Jerome and a disciple of St. Augustine, at whose suggestion he wrote this work.*** Adams O301.

Marca tipografica sul frontespizio e alcune iniziali decorative inc. in legno. (8), 139, (1) ff.; saltuarie e lievi velature d'umidità e alcuni fogli leggermente arrossati. Assai rara prima edizione in italiano del più antico libro sui sogni e la loro interpretazione, testo così stimato da Freud che il padre della moderna psicoanalisi ne usò il titolo per la sua opera più celebre. Artemidoro, autore greco del II secolo d.C., raccolse un?enorme quantità di materiale sui sogni durante i suoi viaggi in Asia, Grecia e Italia (visse anche a Roma). L'opera offre una panoramica completa della materia onirica, fornendo una sistemazione scientifica dei sogni basata sugli episodi storici, distinguendo in tal modo i sogni legati al passato ed al presente e quelli relativi al futuro, interpretati come profetici e simbolici. Lo stile è semplice, ma allo stesso tempo elegante. Aldo stampò l?originale greco a Venezia nel 1518, Froben la traduzione latina a Basilea nel 1539, e poi Giolito questa in italiano che, delle tante edizioni e traduzioni, è una delle più rare. Paitoni I, 130. Bongi, Giolito, 32. Thorndike VI, 475. Edit 16, CNCE 3213. Cf. Osler, Wellcome e Durling per altre edizioni. Rare first edition in Italian of this highly important work by the 2nd century AD Greek writer on dreams and their interpretation. Freud took the title of his seminal work from this book and described it as ?the most comp … [Click Below for Full Description]

FERNEL, Jean François.
Exceptionally fine copy, from the library of Nicolas Fouquet, of "the first systematic treatise on pathology, which also introduced the names for the sciences of pathology and physiology. In the second part, entitled 'Pathologia', Fernel provided the first systematic essay on the subject, methodically discussing the diseases of each organ. Fernel was the first to describe appendicitis, endocarditis, etc. He believed aneurysms to be produced by syphilis, and differentiated true from false aneurysms" (Garrison-Morton).<br/><br/> ❧Norman 785; Pincus 107; PMM 68n; Garrison-Morton 2271. <br/><br/> "With his insistence on personal observation and experiment, Fernel was one of the most influential representatives of a new school of medicine. A very successful physician in Paris, he cured the sterility of Catherine de Medici and the ill-health of Diane de Poitiers, and later became physician to Henry II.<br/><br/> "'On the Natural Part of Medicine' [i.e., <i>De Naturali Parte Medicinae</i>, 1542] was later revised and published as the first part of his great general book, the <i>Medicina</i>, Paris, 1554. In that edition it was first called 'Physiologia', thus giving the subject the name by which it has been known ever since. The orthodox theories of the four humours (blood, phlegm, yellow and black bile), the four qualities (hot, cold, wet, dry), and the four elements (earth, air, fire and water), on whose proper interrelations the functions of a healthy body were believed to depend, still prevailed in Fernel. But he entirely rejected all magic and superstition as irrelevant to … [Click Below for Full Description]

FUCHS, Leonhardt; Fuchs,Leonart
1542. FUCHS, Leonhard. New Kreüterbuch. [16], 427 ff. Illustrated with a woodcut title-page vignette, a full-page woodcut portrait of Fuchs, 517 full-page botanical woodcuts, three woodcut portraits of the participating artists on one leaf, and a printer's device on final leaf. Folio, 380 x 240 mm, bound in contemporary Swiss blind-tooled pigskin, traces of two pairs of ties. Basle: M. Isengrin, 1543. |~||~||~||~| First Edition in German of Fuchs' acclaimed work, without doubt the most beautiful herbal ever published. This edition has six woodcuts not appearing in the 1542 Latin edition, plus a number of corrections and additions to the text. The importance of this work lies chiefly in its illustrations of 400 native German and 100 foreign plants, including several American species -- maize, pumpkin, chili pepper, and snap bean -- which were depicted here for the first time. Several of the plants were drawn on such a large scale that even for this folio volume the plants bend and curve to fit fully within the page. These images were the product of a collaborative effort by three artists: Albrecht Meyer, who provided the original drawings of the plants, Heinrich Füllmaurer, who drew the images onto the woodblocks, and the skilled woodcutter Veit Rudolf Speckle, who was responsible for the delicate printed impressions in this book. All three artisans are depicted on a single plate on fol. BB7v -- one of the earliest of such honors to have been accorded to contributing artists for book illustration. They worked closely with Fuchs, a professor of medicine at Tübingen, to produc … [Click Below for Full Description]

NUNES (or NUÑEZ), Pedro
Title within fine woodcut architectural border, many woodcuts in the text, & a full-page woodcut printer's device on verso of penultimate leaf. 74 unnumbered leaves (the final leaf a blank). Small 4to, attractive antique panelled calf (three inoffensive old stamps on title of the public library of Douai, one of which is a release stamp). [Lisbon: L. Rodriguez, 1542]. First edition of an extremely rare book which contains two notable texts on atmospheric refraction, both entitled De Crepusculis. The first is by Pedro Nuñez (or Nunes) (1502-78), who is considered to be the greatest of the Portuguese mathematicians. He served as chief royal cosmographer and professor of mathematics at the University of Coimbra. His writings reveal him to have been a first-rate geographer, physicist, cosmologist, geometer, and algebraist. He also made important contributions to navigation. Nuñez's text, on atmospheric refraction, twilight, and scientific instruments used to make observations, belongs to his most significant works and occupies the first 65 leaves. "Nuñez made important contributions in the design of instruments. In astronomical observations the impossibility of precisely measuring small portions of an arc was an impediment, and to overcome this difficulty, he conceived the idea of the nonius. In its original form this instrument, consisting of forty-four concentric auxiliary circles, was attached to an astrolabe for measuring fractions of a degree...Each circle had one division less than the one outside it and one division more than the one inside, making it possible to take a r … [Click Below for Full Description]

ARNOBIO Afro.
Prima edizione, a cura del bresciano Fausto Sabeo. Testo latino. Cm.30,7x21. Pg.(8), CII numerate solo al recto, (2). Legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tagli spruzzati. Esemplare ad ampi margini, con alcuni aloni. Vecchi restauri cartacei alle ultime due carte. Minime chiose manoscritte al frontespizio. La dedicatoria di Fausto Sabeo a Francesco Valesio riporta la data Settembre 1543, mentre al colophon è apposta la datazione "Romae, in aedibus Francisci Priscianensis, 1542". "Arnobio (Sicca Veneria, 255 ? 327) fu un filosofo e scrittore romano, chiamato a volte "il vecchio" per distinguerlo da Arnobio il giovane, monaco del V secolo. Le scarse notizie biografiche provengono da San Girolamo ("Chronica ad annum; De viris illustribus, III, 79, 80; Lettera 58"), che afferma che Arnobio fu un retore pagano di Sicca Veneria, nell'Africa proconsolare, che avrebbe avuto per discepolo Lattanzio e avrebbe anche scritto contro la dottrina cristiana. Convertitosi alla fine del III secolo grazie a un sogno, chiese di ricevere il battesimo per poter far parte della comunità cristiana; allo scopo di superare i dubbi del suo vescovo sulla sincerità della conversione scrisse, dopo la fine del regno di Diocleziano (284 - 305) e prima dell'Editto di Milano (313), un'opera apologetica in sette libri, "Adversus gentes", poi intitolata, nel manoscritto più antico pervenutoci nel IX secolo, "Adversus nationes". Scritti per lettori ignari dei contenuti della fede cristiana, con lo stile del retore, letterario e anche ampolloso ma anche, quando occorre, ironico e realistico, i libri I e II espon … [Click Below for Full Description]

NIPHUS, Augustine
Lyon: [apud] Jacobum Givnctam, 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.. First Edition, thus. Hard Cover. Very Good. 8vo.. Book.

Second edition, by the printer-publisher of the 1704 first edition, of a rare coarse satire whose title can be translated as, "The comical and entertaining life of Louwtje Zevenhuizen, or the family fencing school." The two volumes of the "fencing school" are followed by the African and Asiatic guide, which Spaan had published separately in 1694 and 1695. The former includes a chapter on the fictitious Isle of Pines.The first two parts, volumes one and two of the "fencing school" satirize the rough morals, customs and traditions of Dutch country people, with lively, convincingly realistic and sometimes coarse descriptions. The Afrikaanse weg-wijzer says it is for the benefit of those who can't earn a living in their native country. Chapter VII describes the fictitious Isle of Pines, where Joris Pines was supposedly shipwrecked in 1589 and lived a life of luxury and pleasure with his four wives and 1789 children and grandchildren. The last part describes a voyage to and in the East Indies and the unknown Australia, with information on Java, Ceylon, Formosa, Ambon, Ternate, Celebes and Borneo.With the bookplates of J. W. Six and Jan Steenks. In very good condition. The binding shows some chips and cracks, mainly in the spine, but is structurally sound.

Boemus, Johann:
Antwerp. 1542.. 123 leaves. Modern vellum. Some spotting and thumbing, some dampstaining in places. Small erasure and old ownership inscription on titlepage. One of the classic works on the different races of mankind, first published in Venice in 1520 and here present in the first edition to include American material. The most important addition to this edition is the text of Maximilianus Transylvanus' DE MOLUCCIS INSULIS, first published in 1523, here in its sixth appearance in print, following the four separate editions of 1523- 24 and an Italian translation of 1536. All of the preceding editions are of the greatest rarity. One of the 1524 editions sold for 68,500 Australian dollars some years ago. The text is one of two contemporary narratives of the first circumnavigation of the globe, in this case an account dictated to an official of the Spanish court, Maximilianus. The present edition of Boemus also includes Jacob Ziegler's DE REGIONABUS SEPTRIONALIBUS, first published in Strasbourg in 1532, describing Greenland and Canada. An important collection.
