         De humani corporis fabrica libri septem.

      Basel, (Johannes Oporinus, June 1543). - Folio. 355 leaves and two folding sheets. Roman and italic types, occasional use of Greek and Hebrew types, printed shoulder notes. Woodcut pictorial title, author portrait, and printer’s device; 7 large, 186 mid-sized, and 22 small woodcut initials; more than 200 woodcut illustrations, including 3 full-page skeletons, 14 full-page muscle men, 5 large diagrams of veins and nerves, 10 mid-sized views of the abdomen, 2 mid-sized views of the thorax, 13 mid-sized views of the skull and brain, and numerous smaller views of bones, organs and anatomical parts. All woodcuts and initials up to page 165 in full contemporary hand colour. Contemporary blindstamped leather over wooden boards with bevelled edges, on five raised double bands, with two clasps. A truly outstanding copy of one of the greatest and most appealing books in the history of science. Preserved in its original binding with the blindstamped initials of its first owner, the German physician Caspar Neefe (1514-79), and with his handwritten annotations throughout, the present copy is partly coloured by a contemporary artist (including the iconic woodcut used as title page and all anatomical illustrations up to page 165). Caspar Neefe, who later served as personal physician to Duke Albert I of Saxony, acquired the precious volume only a year after its publication and obviously consulted it extensively throughout his career as a medical practioner. - With the publication of "De humani corporis fabrica" (when he was only twenty-eight) Vesalius revolutionized both the science of anatomy and how it was taught. In his preface he describes his disappointing experiences as a student in Paris and Louvain, stating his intention to reform the teaching of anatomy by giving in this book a complete description of the structure of the human body, thereby drawing attention "to the falsity of Galen’s pronouncements". Vesalius also broke with tradition by performing dissections himself instead of leaving this task to assistants: the striking and dramatic title illustration shows him conducting such a dissection, his hand plunged into a female cadaver (striking in itself, as only the cadavers of executed criminals could be dissected legally and female criminals were rarely executed), surrounded by a seething mass of students. - The "Fabrica" is also revolutionary for "its unprecedented blending of scientific exposition, art and typography" (Norman). The woodcuts by artists of the school of Titian are both iconographically and artistically important. The series of fourteen muscle men show landscapes that, when assembled in reverse order, form a panorama of the Euganean Hills near Padua, a scenery well known to Vesalius while he was at work on the Fabrica. - Of the few copies of the first edition to have come to the market in recent decades, only two were in a contemporary binding. Apart from Vesalius's dedication copy to Emperor Charles V (Christie's New York, 18 March 1998, lot 213: $1,652,500), only a single other partly coloured copy was previously known, a list to which ours must now be added as the third known copy in contemporary colour. - Erased circular library stamp in the blank margin of the title page, so far unidentified (relevant correspondence with Daniel Margócsy, University of Cambridge, in charge of the Vesalius census, is available upon request). Occasional waterstaining to margins, the splendid binding a little rubbed and bumped, but altogether a splendidly crisp, wide-margined copy of the first edition. Definitely the most desirable copy of a milestone in the history of science still in private hands, and likely the most important medical book obtainable for decades to come. PMM 71. VD 16, V 910.

         Pasquillorum tomi duo. Quorum primo versibus ac rhythmis, altero soluta oratione conscripta quamplurima continentur...

      [Johann Oporinus], 1543. First edition of this gathering of pasquinades, or political and religious satires, mostly in Latin. Published anonymously, with a false imprint that translates to "Free City" or "City of Liberty," these lampoons were collected by a prominent humanist scholar (known in his day as Caelius Secundus Curio) who spent much of his career fleeing persecution by the Church. The denunciations of anti-Reformation thought include Hutten's Trias Romana (in German), Erasmus' Pasquillus, and Curione's own Pasquillus ecstaticus. The text is for the most part printed in an attractive italic -- the Hutten German text being an exception, in black letter -- with => two decorative capitals hand-illuminated in red, blue, and gold. Binding: 19th-century straight-grained red morocco, spine with gilt rules and gilt-stamped club, scepter, and wreath motif in compartments; covers framed in single gilt fillet and elegant gilt roll, board edges with single gilt fillet, turn-ins with gilt Greek key roll. All edges gilt. Spine stamped "Rel[iure] p[ar] Bozerian Jeune," i.e,. renowned binder => François Bozerian (1765-1826), younger brother of the equally notable binder Jean-Claude Bozerian. Evidence of Readership: Pencilled marks of emphasis in margins, and occasional early inked marginalia in Latin; final leaf with early inked verses on each side: "Oenigma de Collogino" and "Epigraphium Tilonis Ditmarri [sic] civis Goslariani [sic]." Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of the Earl of Mexborough, with motto "Be fast." Later in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

         Paradossi cioè, sententie fuori del comun parere novellamente venute in luce, opra non men dotta, che piacevole, & in due parti separata.

      - A Lione, per Gioanni Pullon da Trino, 1543. In-8, cc. [112]. Segnatura: A-D8; E4. Impresa tipografica in xilografia sul frontespizio. Bella legatura in tutto marocchino, fregio al centro dei piatti in oro, titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. tagli dorati. Bell'esemplare marginoso ed elegantemente rilegato. Raro. Princeps di questo estroso archetipo della letteratura utopiense, frutto della penna «estremistica» di un autore «volubile, stravagantissimo, che aveva, anzi, un vero ramo di pazzia » (F. Flamini, «Il Cinquecento», p. 414). L'opera è pubblicata anonima ma con generosa concessione a una molteplicità di indizi intorno alla sua paternità, lumeggiata in fine da un palindromo inequivocabile («svisnetroh tabedvl») che tolse ogni velo agli occhi di lettori, estimatori, censori. Molto si sa del Lando, poco dello stampatore, il trinese Giovanni Pullon, che fu probabilmente anche editore, forse riformato, sicuramente finanziatore di queste «Sententie» oggi divenute rarissime. Le complesse vicende tipografiche di quest'opera nonché la rassegna completa delle sue ristampe e riedizioni, sempre sottrattive nella materia e peggiorative nell'arte, sono state recentemente pubblicate da A. Corsaro (O. Lando, Paradossi, Roma, 2000). Bibliografia: esaustivi riferimenti in F. Grendler, Critics of the Italian world., Madison-London, 1969, p. 222. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Polyhistor, rerum toto orbe memorabilium thesaurus locupletissimus. -- De situ orbis libros tres.

      Basileae: Apud Mich. Isingrinium, M.D.XLIII. [i.e., Basel: Michael Isingrin, 1543]. - Folio (32 x 21 cm.), two parts in one volume: [20], 230, [2] pages; printer's device on title-page and on verso of final blank, historiated initials, 2 folding woodcut maps of Asia, 4 full-page maps, and 14 vignette maps in the text. Bound in 19th century half calf over marbled paper boards; contemporary ink ownership inscription on title page of Don Cristobal Bañes (perhaps Don Cristobal Bañez Salcedo, active in Seville, Spain in the late 17th century), as well as three ecclesiastical ownership stamps, one of which has been defaced with ink. EARLY EDITION OF SOLINUS’S WORK WITH "ASIA MAJOR" MAP SHOWING AMERICA AS "TERRA INCOGNITA". Second edition thus, first published with Munster's commentary in 1538, Solinus's Polyhistor is a collection of geographical accounts edited by Sebastian Münster. This work is renowned for its inclusion of a printed map bearing the earliest representation of the northwest coast of America as "Terra incognita" in the upper right-hand corner of the folding map of "Asia Major," the first complete map of Asia. This same map also shows one of the earliest depictions of a strait between Asia and America, nearly 200 years before Vitus Bering famously voyaged to this part of the world. At the time of publication, scholars and voyagers were still debating the plausibility of a land mass connection between the Asian and American continents. The Polyhistor also includes a second, detailed folding map of the Greek Isles and parts of modern day Turkey and Eastern Europe. Solinus was a legendary Roman geographer, grammarian and anthologist. His Polyhistor incorporated much of Pliny’s Natural History and included Pomponius Mela’s geography. There are brief remarks on a number of historical, social, religious and natural history questions. The Polyhistor was first issued in the middle of the third century. Münster, the editor of the 1538 and 1543 editions of the Polyhistor, is quite a significant figure in the history of sixteenth-century cartography. However, while there is little doubt that Münster edited and inserted his own commentary into the text of this 1543 edition, it is not clear whether he also served as its cartographer. Münster studied Hebrew at Heidelberg and was also a scholar of geography. In 1540 he published his own "updated" edition of Ptolemy’s Geography, which included maps of the new or modern world. Münster was also one of the first cartographers to create space in the woodblock for the insertion of metal-typed place-names. Indeed, his decision to refer to the New World as "America" in his 1544 edition of the Cosmography greatly contributed to the name’s endurance.

      Paris, Guillaume Richard, 1543.

The earliest known edition of this popular textbook, dividing rhetoric into three parts: invention, disposition, and elocution (omitting pronunciation and memory), each introduced in a series of questions and answers explicated by examples, followed by some precepts of composition. [img-2347-left-large_default] The author (Jooris Casant) had matriculated in the Collegium Trilingue in Louvain in 1531 and in 1534 was promoted Master of Arts. 1 He taught thereafter in the famous school of Eligius Hoeckaert in Ghent, where his edition of the Sententiae of Plautus (1536) and a short treatise on coinage (1537) were published at the press of Joos Lambrecht. In 1541 Cassander was appointed professor of bonæ litteræ in the school founded by the late Bishop Joannes Albius (de Witte) in Bruges and on 3 May 1541 delivered his inaugural oration in praise of the founder and of the town of Bruges (printed by J. Lambrecht, 1541). In February 1543 Cassander abruptly resigned his post to travel to Italy with his patron, Cornelius Wouters; on his return, he settled in Cologne, and in September 1544 matriculated there as a student of theology. Cassander's textbook is dedicated at Bruges in 1542 to the trustees of Albius' foundation, the physician Cornelius van Baersdorp (1484-1565), and the banker, Jehan Claissone (Claeyssone). Since there is no trace of an edition of that year printed in Flanders, Cassander may have taken the manuscript with him when he left Bruges, and caused it to be printed at Paris. An edition from the press of Guillaume Richard, allegedly dated 1542, is cited by Renouard; however no copy of it is recorded elsewhere. 2 Our edition of 1543 was published by Guillaume Richard in partnership with Chrétien Wechel, whose share of the copies has the imprint 'Ex officina Christiani Wecheli, sub scuto Basiliensi in uico Iacobaeo & sub pegaso in uico Bellouacensi, anno 1543' on title-page. Just three copies of the edition are known to the writer: 3 ● Grenoble, Bibliothèque municipale, F 3492 CGA ● New Haven, Yale University, 2001.635 (with Wechel's address on title-page) ● Paris, Bibliothèque Mazarine, 8° 20461-5 (with Wechel's address on title-page) In 1550, an edition 'Multò quàm antea emendatiores, atque ab ipso autore recognitae' was first published at Cologne. Apart from an elaboration of the dedication, acknowledging van Baersdorp's appointment in that year as court-physician to the Emperor Charles v, it is an unchanged reprint. New editions by Guillaume Richard's successor (Thomas Richard) appeared in 1549, 1552-1553, 1557, 1558, 1561, and 1564. Further editions were printed at Antwerp in 1544 (Joannes Steelsius) and 1548; 4 Caen in 1569 (Pierre Philippe); Cologne in 1550 (Martin Gymnich), 1553 (s.n.), 1554 (Walther Fabritius), and 1573 (Martin Ordenbach); Dortmund in 1550 (Melchior Soter); Lyon in 1573 (Louis Cloquemin & Étienne Michel); Paris in 1545 and 1546 (both by Chrétien Wechel), 1546 (Mathieu David), 1547 (s.n.), 1548 (C.

Buon), 1578 (Martin Le Jeune), and 1582 (Thomas Brumen); Palermo in 1571 (Giovanni Matteo Maida); Poitiers in 1551 (Jacques Bouchet); Valencia in 1553 (Juan Mey); 5 Venice in 1553 (Michele Tramezzino); Zerbst in 1583 (Bonaventura Schmidt); and Zwolle in 1545 (Jan van Ruremonde). With few exceptions, each of these editions likewise is known to the writer by a handful of copies. reference Ferdinand Buisson, Répertoire des ouvrages pédagogiques duxvi e siècle: bibliothèques de Paris et des départements (Paris 1886), p.125 1.

      Basel: Michael Isingrin, 1543. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Folio (375 x 240 mm). 444 unnumbered leaves. Signatures: (pi)-2(pi)6, 3(pi)4, (a-z)6 (A-Zz)6, AA6 BB8. Full-page woodcut portrait of Fuchs on title verso, 517 (7 hand-coloured) botanical woodcuts by Viet Rudolph Speckle after Heinrich Füllmaurer and Albert Meyer, woodcut portrait of the three artists with woodcut number 100 "Traubenkraut" on recto, and leaf with printer's device on verso bound at the end, woodcut historiated initials in several sizes.

Provenance: Monogrammed bookplate to front pastedown. A fine copy with ample margins in contemporary binding, except for the old rebacking completely untouched, rarely found complete and without supplied leaves as here. ----Nissen, BBI 659; VD 16 F 3243; Pritzel 3139; Stafleu/Cowan 1910; Wellcome 2443; PMM 69 (Latin edition). - FIRST EDITION in German of "perhaps the most celebrated and most beautiful herbal ever published" (PPM). The woodcuts are those used in the 1542 edition, plus an additional five, depicting Hunerbis, Spitziger Wegerich, klein Schlangen Kraut, Knabenkrautweible, das Mittel, and Kuchenschell. The Latin and German editions are closely associated: printed at the same press, on the same paperstock, and with the same fine woodcut botanical illustrations. As Fuchs explains in the preface to this German edition, he wished to reach an audience broader than the Latinate scholar or physician for whom herbals had been a necessary medical tool throughout Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Fuchs realized that his own herbal could provide that knowledge not only to the specialist but also to the layman interested in plants and the popular remedies derived from them, or simply interested in the natural world surrounding him. In preparing the German edition, Fuchs took the opportunity to augment his text with an index of illnesses treatable with herbs, enhancing its usefulness and popular appeal. The illustrations depict over 400 German and 100 foreign plants (including the first description of some recently discovered American plants). In contrast to many of the crude herbals which preceded this work, Fuchs' botanical descriptions are very accurate and mark a significant advance in medical botany. His detailed plant-portraits were highly influential: they were reused in all later editions, copied in the works of Bock, Dodoens, William Turner, and others. It was also one of the first herbals that also recognized the artists for their contributions and whose work influenced botanical illustration for many years. The drawings were made from life by Albert Meyer, largely based on plants in Fuch's medicinal garden at Tübingen. - Visit our website for additional images and information. Very Good / No Jacket.

En una actuación semejante a la desarrollada por Robert Estienne, Benoit, profesor de Teología en La Sorbonne, había cotejado el texto de la Biblia vulgata con manuscritos griegos y hebreos antiguos y fue insertando a lo largo del texto múltiples anotaciones en forma de apostillas, tanto para indicar dónde había variantes entre las fuentes, como para introducir explicaciones que ayudaran a entender el significado de diferentes pasajes. Y, a semejanza de lo que le sucediera a Estienne, sus comentarios también fueron perseguidos y su versión acabaría incluida en el Índice de Libros prohibidos, aunque bastante más tarde(1). El resultado de su trabajo lo imprimió en 1541 Simon Colines para el librero Galiot du Pré (merced al privilegio que compartía con Antoine Vincent), en un volumen in-folio con el título de Biblia sacra iuxta vulgatam quam dicunt aeditionem, a mendis [.] repurgata, atque ad priscorum [.] exemplariorum norman [.] restituta. Pero así como la 'Biblia de Benoit' no volvería a imprimirse hasta 1549 (en París, por Carola Guillard), lo que sí hizo Colines dos años más tarde fue imprimir esta edición separada del Nuevo Testamento que ofrecemos, en la que compartió los gastos de impresión con du Pré. No se trata, sin embargo, de una reproducción del texto y anotaciones presentados en la Biblia de 1541, sino que, como el propio Benoit advierte en el aviso al lector, el contenido de esta edición de 1543 estaba revisado y ampliado, especialmente en las aclaraciones a los Evangelios, como efectivamente puede confirmarse ya desde el primer párrafo del evangelio de Mateo si se cotejan ambas ediciones. Benoit continuó trabajando en sus anotaciones y en 1549 publicó una 'seconde edition' de la Biblia, la ya mencionada impresa por Carola Guillard, con todos los cambios y las nuevas anotaciones.

His political and philosophic works have been accused of lack of originality, to which Cicero would have been the first to confess: there were few philosophic work in Latin, except for the Epicurean work of Lucretius which Cicero, a Stoic, opposed.

         New Kreüterbuch

      Basel: Michael Isengrin, 1543. Folio (377 x 242 mm). Woodcut printer's device on title, large Isengrin device on final recto, full-page woodcut portrait of Fuchs on title verso, 517 botanical woodcuts by Viet Rudolph Speckle after Heinrich Füllmaurer and Albert Meyer, woodcut portraits of the three artists at end, woodcut historiated initials in several sizes. Contemporary German blindstamped pigskin over pasteboard. Ties lacking, some minor wear at extremities, a few small repairs; title and final leaf with very minor fingersoiling, tiny wormhole in lower margins of second half of volume occasionally touching extreme lower image. Provenance: purchased from Sandbergs Bokhandel, 1962. FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN OF 'PERHAPS THE MOST CELEBRATED AND MOST BEAUTIFUL HERBAL EVER PUBLISHED' (PMM), with amendments and an additional 5 woodcuts not present in the Latin edition published the previous year as De Historia stirpium. The plates were printed from the same blocks, though the captions and numbering have been changed, many mistakes were corrected and five additional woodcuts were inserted, namely those depicting 'Hunerbis', 'Spitziger Wegerich', 'klein Schlangen kraut', 'Knabenkrautweible' and 'Kuchens chell'. Fuchs was an eminent physician and botanist of the early German Reformation who after completing his medical studies in Ingolstadt and teaching in that university, moved to Tübingen, where he served Duke Ulrich of Württemberg. Here he contributed greatly to the reform of the local university, which became the first German institution of its kind to adopt a humanist and Lutheran program. His reputation became immortalized with a plant name-and the color fuchsia itself-being named for him. Fuchs wrote many medical commentaries and treatises, though this herbal was by far his major achievement. As he explains in the preface of the work, he wished his own German translation to reach a broader audience than Latinate scholars and physicians, who had found in herbals a fundamental medical tool since Antiquity and the Middle Ages and hailed with enthusiasm the Latin first edition of the work. Fuchs realized that his own herbal could provide that knowledge not only to the specialist but also to the layman interested in plants and the popular remedies derived from them, or simply interested in the natural world surrounding him. In preparing the German edition Fuchs took the opportunity to augment his text with an index of illnesses treatable with herbs, enhancing its usefulness and popular appeal. Fuchs's botanical descriptions are very accurate and mark a significant advancement in medical botany in respect of earlier somewhat crude herbals. This work describes over 400 German and 100 foreign plants, each with its own detailed illustration, and includes the first description of several recently-discovered American plants, such as pumpkin, chili pepper, snap bean and maize (mistakenly thought by Fuchs to originate in Turkey). It was highly influential, with many reprints and translations into the main European vernaculars; its woodcuts were reused in all later editions, pirated several times and copied in the works of Hieronymus Bock, Rembert Dodoens, William Turner, amongst others. The drawings were made from life by Albert Meyer, largely relying on the plants carefully gathered by Fuchs in his garden in Tübingen. Heinrich Füllmaurer transferred the illustrations onto woodblocks, which were later cut by Viet Rudolph Speckle. The three artists received the unprecedented honor of having their portraits included in the book. Adams F-1107; Cleveland Collections 62; Nissen BBI 659; Pritzel 3139; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 1910.

         Iani Damasceni Decapolitani summae inter Arabes autoritatis medici, therapeutice methodi, hoc est, curandi artis Libri VII. partim Albano Torino Vitodurano paraphraste, partim Gerardo iatro Cremonensi metaphraste.

      Basel, Heinrich Petri, (March 1543). - Folio (205 x 290 mm). (24), 491, (1) pp. 17th century black-tinted vellum binding using an earlier liturgic musical manuscript. Important Latin edition of this Arabic medical compendium (first printed, also in Latin, in 1479), with additions by Gerard de Cremona. It provides a collection of opinions voiced by Greek and Arabic physicians on pathology and therapeutics. "No Arabic printed edition exists so far" (cf. Choulant). The third-century doctor Yahya bin Sarabiyun, son of a Bagarma physician, wrote his great medical work "Al-Kunnas" in Syriac, but it was soon translated into Arabic by scholars such as Musa Ibrahim al-Haditi and ibn Bahlul. There exist manuscripts in twelve and in seven books. "The seven-book edition was frequently printed in Latin translations as 'Breviarium' and 'Practica therapeuticae methodus'. Albanus Torinus, the editor of the Basel 1543 edition, called him Janus Damascenus, for which reason he has been confused with the well-known theologian of that name. He is also often mistaken for his younger namesake, Serapio junior" (cf. GAL I, 233). Some catalogues even ascribe this work to the Baghdad physician Abu-Zakariya Yuanna Ibn-Masawaih. - Slight waterstaining; some unobtrusive worming to upper cover and flyleaves. Binding rubbed; extremeties bumped with chipping to spine-ends. A wide-margined copy. Provenance: 1677 ownership of the pharmacist and medical student Joseph Franz König on front pastedown; later in the library of Bonifacius Brix von Wahlberg, court physician to the Princes of Fürstenberg, in the later 18th century (his ownership on the title page). VD 16, Y 11. Adams I 14. BM-STC German 932. GAL I, 233 & S 417. Durling 4778. Choulant, Handb. p. 347. Not in Waller.

         La Ricchezze della Lingua Volgare

      Venice: Aldus, 1543. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+. Vellum, backed in morocco with gilt-stamped lettering in brown and black leather spine labels; folio; 225, [1] ff; with Aldine anchor and dolphin device on title-page and last leaf. Some light scuffing along joints; upper board flaring slightly; hinge of last leaf strengthened. A remarkably bright, crisp text block. A rare dictionary of words and elegant phrases used in Boccaccio in the Decameron, and Dante -- still useful. Alunno, 15th century Italian mathematician and philosopher, is still held in high esteem for his two principal works: careful study of Petrarch, which is included in a volume of his poetry, and this work on the beauties of the Italian language. The author's study of Italian poets resulted in this alphabetical compendium of instructive and elegant phrases from the writings of Boccaccio and Dance. Renouard says the work was held in great esteem and had a great number of readers. Dedicated to cardinal Farnese, it is also the first use of the redesigned (the fifth) Aldine device, with a new border of botanical tendrils and four grotesque faces. Plimpton (15) cites only the reprint. Adams I, 842. Renouard 127.

         [Antiqui rhetores Latini.] ... Omnia ex codd. manusc. emendatiora vel auctiora. Paris, Adrien Périer (ex officina Plantiniana), 1599. Large 4to. Set in roman types with incidental italic, Greek and Hebrew. Contemporary gold-tooled calf with 18th-century restorations, with the arms of Aire-sur-la-Lys (an eagle) flanked by "S.P.Q. ... Arien[sis]". Rebacked with the original backstrip laid down.

      Adams R448; BMC STC French, p. 256; for Pithou: NBG XL, cols. 345-346. First edition of a collection of 15 classical and mediaeval school texts on the art of rhetoric, in a rare 16th-century French prize binding from Aire-sur- la-Lys, in the French department Pas-de Calais, on the border of French Flanders and Artois. Although most of these works had been published before in some form, the present collection was based on an unpublished manuscript. It therefore provided an independent source for these works as well as bringing them together in one convenient volume for students. The manuscripts edited here came from the library of the celebrated French lawyer, humanist and scholar François Pithou (1543-1621), a pupil of Cujas and later attorney-general at Troyes. He is believed to have edited the texts himself for the present publication.With 2 owners' names and 2 bookplates. In very good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving generous margins, with marginal water stains in a few leaves, reaching the text in 1 quire. Binding rebacked, with the original backstrip laid down, slightly rubbed and with superficial cracks, traces of 2 pair of leather ties. A 1599 collection of works on rhetoric, taken from a previously unpublished manuscript.

         DUODECIM CAESARES (THE TWELVE CAESARS) Ex Erasmi recognitione, with JOANNIS BAPTISTAE and index

      Paris Simon de Colines 1543 - Handsome Erasmus edition. 8vo. 160 x 100mm. Early calf boards recently rebacked in tan calf, gilt titles to the spine. In very good condition. Engraved title page vignette and numerous decorative woodcut initials. Private secretary to Hadrian, Suetonius's account of the life of twelve Caesars is racy and gossip filled, but has become a primary source for scholars of the Roman period. Caesars are Julius Caesar, Augustus, Tiberius, Calligula, Claudius, Nero, Galba, Otho, Vitellius, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian. Suetonius's "Lives of the Caesars" was held in such high esteem, that, shortly after 1500AD, as printing became more commonplace, no fewer than eighteen editions had been published. Erasmus, a noted scholar, particularly of classic Latin texts, published his edition of Suetonius with the purpose, he stated in his original preface, of encouraging rulers "to order their lives and habits as if in a mirror" (1518). Simon de Colines, credited with creating the italic font, first published Erasmas's Suetonius in 1527 with his rabbit pressmark - this edition has his later satyr pressmark. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
