Mit 2 wiederholten Holzschnitt-Druckermarken und vielen, meist schematischen, Textholzschnitten. Schweinslederband der Zeit über erhabenen Bünden, mit 2 intakten Messingschliessen. VD 16 B 6402. - Hieronymus, Petri-Schwabe, Nr. 310. - Adams B-2279. - Index Aureliensis 121.112. - Groote, Heinrich Glarean reading and editing Boethius, in: Acta Musicologica, Bd. 80 (2008), S. 215-229. - Es fehlt die Seite 739/740 (Bl. Aa2, Kopien vorhanden, Bl. Aa [S. 736/737] ist doppelt einbebunden). - Sehr schönes Exemplar im ersten Einband der vom Humanisten Heinrich Glarean (1488-1563) unter Mitarbeit des gleichaltrigen Sebastian Münster besorgten ersten Basler Gesamtausgabe der Schriften des letzten grossen Philosophen des römischen Altertums. - Boethius (480-524), der die Kenntnis der Mathematik, der Musik, der Geometrie und der Astronomie als Voraussetzung für die Philosophie erachtete, war mit seinen Uebersetzungen und Erläuterungen auch einer der herausragenden Vermittler der griechischen Philosophie. Nach den vier in Venedig gedruckten Werkausgaben von 1491/1492, 1497/1499, 1523 und 1536 ist dies die insgesamt fünfte und erste nördlich der Alpen gedruckte Gesamtausgabe. Ihren besonderen Wert erhält sie durch neue und erstmals als Quelle herangezogene Handschriften, die der im glarnerischen Mollis geborene und im katholisch gebliebenen Freiburg im Breisgau als Universitätsprofessor lehrende Heinrich Loriti benutzte. In Basel selbst wurden Glareans Interessen als Herausgeber von Sebastian Münster wahrgenommen. Ihn erwähnt der Herausgeber in seinem an den kaiserlichen Rat und reichen Augsburger Kaufmann Anton Fugger gerichteten Vorwort. Glarean verweist auch auf die durch den Basler Drucker Johann Walder begonnene, durch dessen Tod 1541 aber nicht vollendete, Edition von Boethius' Texten, auf die offenbar Henric Petri zurückgreifen konnte. - Glarean bearbeitete die De institutione arithmetica (S. 1295-1370) und die De institutione musica (S. 1371-1481) auf Grund der neuen Handschriften, wobei Glareans editorische Anmerkungen im Rand kursiv gedruckt wurden. Nebst dem philologisch korrigierten Text enthält die Ausgabe gegenüber den vorausgegangenen venezianischen auch Ergänzungen. Während die Giunta Ausgaben von 1523 und 1536 nur die Texte der Ausgabe von 1497/1499 wiederholten, enthält dieser Basler Druck auch Giulio Marziano Rotas und Jacques Lefèvre d'Etaples' Uebersetzungen der „Analytica priora" und „Analytica posteriora", der „Topica" und „Sophistici elenchi" des Aristoteles. «The Petri print thus embraces not only one of Boethius' modern advocates but also one of Glarean's most influential contacts during his stay in Paris between 1517 and 1522» (Inga Mai Groote). Auf S. 965-967 findet sich auch das nicht von Boethius stammende Traktat „De unitate et uno", das tatsächlich der im 12. Jhdt. in Segovia u.a. als Avicenna-Uebersetzer wirkende Dominicus Gundisalvi aus diversen arabischen Quellen zusammen kompilierte. - (Kleiner Fleck auf Schnitt. Eintrag von alter Hand auf Vorsatz und Titelblatt. Ab Seite 1227 mit winzigem Randausriss). - Sonst sehr schönes Exemplar dieser meisterlich gedruckten und seltenen Gesamtausgabe, die 1570 erneut aufgelegt wurde. - Page 739/740 is missing. - Excellent copy of Heinrich Glarean's and Sebastian Münster's edition of the works of the last great philosopher of Roman antiquity. - After the four venetian editions published in 1491/1492, 1497/1499, 1523 and 1536 this is in all the fifht and first edition being printed north of the Alps. The Swiss humanist, musical scholar and professor of theology at the university of Freiburg i. Br. based his editorial work on three new manuscripts. His explanations are printed in italics in the margins. While he stayed at Freiburg (which remained a centre of Catholicism on the Upper Rhine) his interests as editor were safeguarded by Sebastian Mün [Attributes: First Edition]

Early struck-through annotations to title page and some other leaves, interior otherwise clean. A solid copy in an attractive binding. $5,000. * The first and only edition of the second printed book of entries, the first published in 1510. Also known as the Book of Legal Writs, this is the earliest English book of precedents for pleadings. It contains pleadings in real, personal and mixed actions, information on writs and executions and miscellaneous information on other topics. The anonymous author derived his material from the plea rolls, a fundamental source for early English legal history. Sir John Baker notes the "old books of entries are the least used of all early law books; but they are replete with learning which, though difficult to extract, the legal historian ignores at his cost." This copy contains seventeen additional pages of precedents in a fine contemporary chancery hand. OCLC locates 12 copies of this imprint.

Also known as the Book of Legal Writs, this is the earliest English book of precedents for pleadings. It contains pleadings in real, personal and mixed actions, information on writs and executions and miscellaneous information on other topics. The anonymous author derived his material from the plea rolls, a fundamental source for early English legal history. Sir John Baker notes the "old books of entries are the least used of all early law books; but they are replete with learning which, though difficult to extract, the legal historian ignores at his cost." This copy contains seventeen additional pages of precedents in a fine contemporary chancery hand. OCLC locates 12 copies of this imprint.

Mit 2 wiederholten Holzschnitt-Druckermarken und vielen, meist schematischen, Textholzschnitten. Schweinslederband der Zeit über erhabenen Bünden, mit 2 intakten Messingschliessen.. VD 16 B 6402. - Hieronymus, Petri-Schwabe, Nr. 310. - Adams B-2279. - Index Aureliensis 121.112. - Groote, Heinrich Glarean reading and editing Boethius, in: Acta Musicologica, Bd. 80 (2008), S. 215-229. - Sehr schönes Exemplar im ersten Einband der vom Humanisten Heinrich Glarean (1488-1563) unter Mitarbeit des gleichaltrigen Sebastian Münster besorgten ersten Basler Gesamtausgabe der Schriften des letzten grossen Philosophen des römischen Altertums. - Boethius (480-524), der die Kenntnis der Mathematik, der Musik, der Geometrie und der Astronomie als Voraussetzung für die Philosophie erachtete, war mit seinen Uebersetzungen und Erläuterungen auch einer der herausragenden Vermittler der griechischen Philosophie. Nach den vier in Venedig gedruckten Werkausgaben von 1491/1492, 1497/1499, 1523 und 1536 ist dies die insgesamt fünfte und erste nördlich der Alpen gedruckte Gesamtausgabe. Ihren besonderen Wert erhält sie durch neue und erstmals als Quelle herangezogene Handschriften, die der im glarnerischen Mollis geborene und im katholisch gebliebenen Freiburg im Breisgau als Universitätsprofessor lehrende Heinrich Loriti benutzte. In Basel selbst wurden Glareans Interessen als Herausgeber von Sebastian Münster wahrgenommen. Ihn erwähnt der Herausgeber in seinem an den kaiserlichen Rat und reichen Augsburger Kaufmann Anton Fugger gerichteten Vorwort. Glarean verweist auch auf die durch den Basler Drucker Johann Walder begonnene, durch dessen Tod 1541 aber nicht vollendete, Edition von Boethius' Texten, auf die offenbar Henric Petri zurückgreifen konnte. - Glarean bearbeitete die De institutione arithmetica (S. 1295-1370) und die De institutione musica (S. 1371-1481) auf Grund der neuen Handschriften, wobei Glareans editorische Anmerkungen im Rand kursiv gedruckt wurden. Nebst dem philologisch korrigierten Text enthält die Ausgabe gegenüber den vorausgegangenen venezianischen auch Ergänzungen. Während die Giunta Ausgaben von 1523 und 1536 nur die Texte der Ausgabe von 1497/1499 wiederholten, enthält dieser Basler Druck auch Giulio Marziano Rotas und Jacques Lefevre d'Etaples' Uebersetzungen der "Analytica priora" und "Analytica posteriora", der "Topica" und "Sophistici elenchi" des Aristoteles. "The Petri print thus embraces not only one of Boethius' modern advocates but also one of Glarean's most influential contacts during his stay in Paris between 1517 and 1522" (Inga Mai Groote). Auf S. 965-967 findet sich auch das nicht von Boethius stammende Traktat "De unitate et uno", das tatsächlich der im 12. Jhdt. in Segovia u.a. als Avicenna-Uebersetzer wirkende Dominicus Gundisalvi aus diversen arabischen Quellen zusammen kompilierte. - (Kleiner Fleck auf Schnitt. Eintrag von alter Hand auf Vorsatz und Titelblatt. Ab Seite 1227 mit winzigem Randausriss). - Sonst sehr schönes Exemplar dieser meisterlich gedruckten und seltenen Gesamtausgabe, die 1570 erneut aufgelegt wurde. - Excellent copy of Heinrich Glarean's and Sebastian Münster's edition of the works of the last great philosopher of Roman antiquity. - After the four venetian editions published in 1491/1492, 1497/1499, 1523 and 1536 this is in all the fifht and first edition being printed north of the Alps. The Swiss humanist, musical scholar and professor of theology at the university of Freiburg i. Br. based his editorial work on three new manuscripts. His explanations are printed in italics in the margins. While he stayed at Freiburg (which remained a centre of Catholicism on the Upper Rhine) his interests as editor were safeguarded by Sebastian Münster in Basel. - "Apart from establishing a philologically emended text, the 1546 edition of Boethius' Opera as a whole offered additions to the previously accessible texts. While the later Venetian editions by Giunta in 1523 and 1536 did not contain other works than those included in the 1497/1499 edition, Petri's edition was augmented by the translations of Analytica priora and posteriar, Topica and Sophistici elenchi of Aristotle. For the first two, Giulio Marziano Marziano Rotas edition with Giunta in 1543 is a possible source, while the texts of the Topics and Sophistici elenchi in the Petri edition are in fact those established by Jacques Lefevre d'Etaples The Petri print thus embraces not only one of Boethius' modern advocates but also one of Glarean's most influential contacts during his stay in Paris between 1517 and 1522 " (Inga Mai Groote).

Together and rubbed on skin boards (many slashes), top cap missing two upper corners broken and missing. Beautiful interior condition, with a pale wetting current to twenty pages in the top middle (p. 29-45 ...). Several pagination errors, repeated the same number, without skipping a sheet missing ... The obvious advantage of this edition was to bring together writers of antiquity who have written on the Roman empire, not only Suetonius, but also rarer writers such as Dion Cassius (translated by Merula) Herodianus (translated by Angelo Poliziano Ambrogini) Spartianus or Lampidius, Velleius Paterculus, Vulcatius Gallicanus, Amianus Marcellinus ... Two commentators Erasmus (d. 1536) Egnazio and Giovanni Battista (1478-1553).

Plusieurs erreurs de pagination, même nombre répété, saut d'un feuillet sans manque...

Deux commentateurs : Erasme (mort en 1536) et Giovanni Battista Egnazio (1478-1553).

        Elementorum geometricorum libri xv

      Basel: Johann Herwagen, 1546. Hardcover. Very Good. Folio, (1) f., 587 (1) pp.[printer's mark]. Note: with 3 ff. preface by Melancthon censored, as often (see Thomas-Stanford #9, first edition of 1537). Bound in contemporary reverse calf. Contemporary stenciling of title on lower fore-edge. Ownership inscription of Aldrovandi on title and several hundred lines of marginalia on 87 pages of text in his hand, ranging from a few lines to completely covering the margins. Highly interesting copy of the second edition of the Basel Euclid, the first complete collection of the Euclidean texts. The present copy bears extensive manuscript annotations by the celebrated Renaissance polymath Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1607), of great interest for charting the intellectual biography of this important Italian scientist. While undated, it seems likely that the annotations were made when Aldrovandi studied mathematics under the guidance of Pietro Catena in Padua between 1546-49. The Herwagen edition includes the most important modern commentaries on Euclid (Campanus and Zamberti), as well as printing for the first time a Euclidean tract translated from the Arabic, the 'Opusculum de Levi & Ponderoso'. As a man of considerable means, Aldrovandi assuredly owned a substantial library (given upon his death to the University of Bologna), but this is the first volume annotated by him that we have encountered on the market. The annotations have been briefly examined by Professor Robin Hartshorne at Berkeley, the world's leading authority on Euclid. According to Hartshorne, Aldrovandi's annotations are characteristic of a Renaissance student, often diligently working through concrete examples of theoretical problems. Occasionally his notes show evidence of additional knowledge drawn from other texts, whether from other editions of Euclid such as Tartaglia's or other mathematical discussions which were au courant. The annotations concentrate on Books VII-IX. This is no accident: these three books on number theory enjoyed a particular vogue around the middle of the sixteenth century all across Europe (witness the first German translation of Euclid (1555), which contained only these three books). The particular interest evinced by Aldrovandi in Euclid's work on number theory may also reflect the growing influence of his countryman Girolamo Cardano, whose famous work on probability was intimately tied to that field. Although he would become famous as a natural historian and physician, Aldrovandi's first line of study was mathematics. As a young man he studied the subject under Annibale della Nave; around 1547 he re-commenced his mathematical studies in Padua under Pietro Catena, the teacher of Bernardino Baldi and Guidobaldo del Monte. Catena is recorded as having lectured on Euclid, allowing us to hypothetically date the present annotations with some precision to between 1546 and 1549 (the year Aldrovandi returned to Bologna and faced arrest for heresy). Aldrovandi himself, in his manuscript autobiography, recounts having taught Euclid to 'many students' (Lind, p xx). Catena would have passed onto the young Aldrovandi his own particular appraisal of Euclidean mathematics: that it cannot treat things which contain matter, but is instead a wholly abstract - yet entirely valid - method of scientific inquiry. This shift in the fundamental understanding of mathematical entities, according to Giulio Cesare Giacobbe, in turn fostered the spirit of empirical enquiry exemplified in the next generation by minds such as Galileo - and, one might add, Aldrovandi? Ulisse Aldrovandi (1522-1605) was one of the most prolific and 'multifaceted' (DSB) minds of the Renaissance. Aldrovandi applied himself to the natural sciences, principally medicine and natural history. He pioneered the study of embryology as well as being one of the first to elevate the studies of botany and pharmacology to a scientific plane.

        De Aure Humana Tractatus, in quo integra ejusdem auris fabrica, multis novis inventis, & iconismis illustrata, describitur; omniumque ejus partium usus indagantur. Quibus interposita est musculorum uvulae, atque pharyngis nova descriptio, et delineatio.Bologna: Constantino Pisari, 1704.

      Rare first edition, and a fine copy, of "the first full account of the minute anatomy of the ear" (Norman). "This remarkable book became a standard on the subject for over a century" (<i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i>).<br/><br/> ❧Norman 2125; Lilly, <i>Notable Medical Books</i> 101; Garrison-Morton 1546; <i>Heirs of Hippocrates</i> 729 (later edition). <br/><br/> Valsalva (1666-1723), student of Malpighi [see Horblit 43] and teacher of Morgagni [see PMM 206], "wrote the first full account of the minute anatomy of the ear in his <i>De Aure Humana Tractatus</i> ('Treatise on the Human Ear'), 'in which the whole structure of the ear is described and illustrated with many new discoveries, and the uses of all its parts are investigated; in which is inserted a new description and delineation of the uvula and pharynx.' He was the first to define the ear's three regions-outer, middle, and inner-and to explain their relative functions. <br/><br/> "The 'Treatise' is arranged in six chapters. The first three are anatomic and deal with the parts of the ear; the last three are physiologic and explain the functions of these parts. The auricle and auditory meatus, the tympanum and middle ear, and the labyrinth and inner ear are discussed. Chapter 2 includes Valsalva's report, promised on the title page, of the musculature of the uvula and pharynx; these are depicted on separate plates. The ten illustrations are good line engravings, of which the most striking are those of the nerves and blood vessels of the outer ear, the carotid artery, the semicircular canals, and the structure of the whole ear. <br/><br/> "Valsalva described and named the Eustachian tube, which connects the middle ear and the pharynx. His consideration of the Eustachian tubes led to the 'respiratory maneuver' named for him; if the tubes are patent and if the nose and mouth are closed, a forcible expiratory effort increases pressure on the tympanic membranes. Valsalva used this procedure to expel pus and foreign bodies from the middle ear. Since his time, the Valsalva maneuver has proved to be of value to the internist, the otologist, and the radiologist. In the section on the pharyngeal muscles, he detailed the dysphagia which has also been named for him. By the digital manipulation of 'a kind of dislocation of the cartilaginous appendages of the hyoid bone,' he relieved a woman who could not eat after a lump of beef had lodged in her throat. Valsalva's collected works were edited with elaborate commentary by his more famous pupil, Morgagni. They include useful contributions to anatomy and surgery, of which the best remembered is his delineation of the sinuses of the aorta, still called 'Valsalva's sinuses'." (Lilly).. 4to (231 x 170 mm), contemporary vellum with manuscript lettering to spine, corners with very light wear, a fine and unrestored copy, pp. [16], 1-184 and 10 engraved plates numbered i-x, one folding (, i.e., iv), old paper repairs of a 4 cm closed tear to margin of first end-paper and 3rd leaf (not effecting text), some very light marginal spotting, in general a fine and fresh copy.

        Canones sicut brevissimi, ita etiam doctissimi, complectentes praecepta & observationes de mutatione aurae

      Nuremberg: J. Montanus & U. Neuber, 1546. Pioneering Work on Environmental Science and MeteorologyWerner, Johann (1468-1522). Canones sicut brevissimi, ita etiam doctissimi, complectentes praecepta & observationes de mutatione aurae . . . 4to. [20]ff., last leaf blank. 2 woodcut initials. Nuremberg: J. Montanus & U. Neuber, 1546. 202 x 142 mm. Modern vellum. Minor soiling on verso of last leaf, otherwise fine. Manuscript annotations in an early hand, titled "Aphorismi Astrologiae," on recto of last leaf.First Edition of one of the rarest works by the mathematician and astronomer Johann Werner, and a pioneering contribution to environmental science in the height of the scientific revolution. Werner, a priest in Nuremberg, made notable contributions to astronomy, mathematics and geography. He invented instruments for solving problems in spherical astronomy and for determining the latitudes of planets, and his work on spherical triangles (not published until 1907) was superior to that of Regiomontanus in its presentation and practical applicability. He also developed the first method for determining latitude and longitude simultaneously.Werner was the first to make regular observations of weather conditions in Germany; together with Tycho Brahe, he pioneered the practice of collecting meteorological data for scientific purposes. "In meteorology Werner paved the way for a scientific interpretation. Meteorology and astrology were connected, but he nevertheless attempted to explain this science rationally. . . . The 'guidelines that explain the principles and observations of the changes in the atmosphere,' published [posthumously] in 1546 by Johann Schöner, contain meteorological notes for 1513-1520. The weather observations are based mainly on stellar constellations, and hence the course of the moon is of less importance. Although Werner did not collect the data systematically, as Tycho Brahe did, he attempted to incorporate meteorology into physics and to take into consideration the geographical situation of the observational site. Thus he can be regarded as a pioneer of modern meteorology and weather forecasting" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). This pamphlet by Werner is very rare, with only three copies in the United States cited in OCLC (UC San Diego, Yale, U. Michigan). Our copy appears to be the first on the market since the Honeyman copy sold in 1981. 40981

        De Sympathia et Antipathia rerum. Liber unus. De Contagione et Contagionis Morbis et Curatione. Libri III.

      Venice, 1546. 4to. Contemporary full vellum. Neatly recased, endpapers renewed. A (mostly fairly faint) damp stain throughout and a marginal worm tract, far from affecting text. Inner blank margin of title-page re-enforced. Some contemporary marginal annotations. Woodcut title-vignette and woodcut printer's device to final blank verso. (4), 76, (4) ff.. Scarce first edition of this milestone in the history of medicine, the foundational work of modern epidemiology, which was the first to state the germ theory of infection.This epochal work "establishes Fracastoro as one of the foremost scientists of all time, and earns him the title of founder of modern epidemiology. "De contagione" contains the first scientifically reasoned statement of the true nature of infection, contagion, and the germ theory of disease and is the foundation of all modern views on the nature of infectuous diseases... Fracastoro's influence is also clearly reflected in the work of such modern scientists as Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, and Robert Koch as they broadened and furthered man's knowledge of infectuous diseases." (Heirs of Hippocrates). "This book represents a landmark in the development of our knowledge of infectuous disease. Fracastorus was the first to state the germ theory of infection. He recognized typhus and suggested the contagiousness of tuberculosis. Haeser describes him as the "founder of scientific epidemology"." (Garrison & Morton).Faracstoro's theories on contagions and epidemics were far ahead of their time, but they were still widely respected. The magnificent theories here constitute the first correct illustrations of how contagions might spread: by simple contact as in scabies and leprosy; by "fomities" or inanimate carriers, such as clothing or sheets; and at a distance, without direct contact or carriers, as in plague, smallpox, etc., attributing their transmission to the action of the air - and his ideas on the spreading and controlling of epidemics were of vital importance to Renaissance man and to the further development of our knowledge within this field. The work furthermore gives the first accurate account of typhys as well as several other contageous diseases, together with the affirmation of the contagiousness of tuberculosis. With this work, Fracastoro was also the first to enunciate the modern doctrine of the specific characters and infectious nature of fevers. Heirs of Hippocrates: 101; G&M: 2528; Wellcome: 2393

        I dieci libri de l'Architettura

      1546. ALBERTI, Leon Battista. I dieci libri de l'Architettura. Translated into Italian by Pietro Lauro. [12], 248 ff. 8vo., 159 x 105 mm, bound in seventeenth-century Italian vellum, black morocco spine label. Venezia: Valgrisi, 1546. |~||~||~| First and only Edition of the first Italian translation. Alberti's chef-d'oeuvre is "the first and most important architectural treatise of the Renaissance" (Arntzen). "It is in the writings of Alberti that a complete Humanist doctrine is first developed, and they are the source from which all later ideas were derived. Since Alberti represented the fifteenth century at its best, exercising an influence over the spirit of his age second only to that of Leonardo, it is not surprising to find that his De Re Aedificatoria [first edition, 1485], especially in the theoretical treatment of the subject and in relating it to the ancient text of Vitruvius, played an important part in the literary output of his successors. This treatise of Alberti's [was] the first work on architecture to be printed" (Fowler, p. 4). Alberti originally published his seminal work on architecture in Latin in 1485; this 1546 edition represents the first vernacular edition in Italian, and hence the first edition available to a larger audience of professionals actually working in architectural design and construction. A few minor blemishes but generally a fine copy bound in seventeenth-century vellum. PROVENANCE: Armorial bookplate of Beilby Thompson of Escrick Park, Yorks (1686-1750), who at 17 years of age departed for a four-year grand tour of Italy, where he probably bought this book. Schlosser-Magnino 121-127. Fowler 5. Millard, Italian 5. Adams A-487. BMC/STC Italian 15. Cicognara 373.

Brand of printer on the title page and the back of the last page. Absent the French catalogs, but this in English catalogs, 2 copies in Germany GBV (union catalogs of northern Germany) and at the University of Munich. The 1544 edition published in Paris does not include notes of Erasmus and all authors gathered in this edition, the Paris edition will be reissued in 1551 in Lyon in Gryphium, but not that of Froben, it reproduces the editing Egnazio only. The first edition of Suetonius date of 1479. Sheepskin Full seventeenth century, back tooled raised (part of title in red morocco). Together and rubbed on skin dishes (many slashes), top cap missing two upper corners broken and missing. Beautiful interior condition, with a pale wetting current to twenty pages in the top middle (p. 29-45 ...). Several pagination errors, repeated the same number, without skipping a sheet missing ... The obvious advantage of this edition was to bring together writers of antiquity who have written on the Roman empire, not only Suetonius, but also rarer writers such as Dion Cassius (translated by Merula) Herodianus (translated by Angelo Poliziano Ambrogini) Spartianus or Lampidius, Velleius Paterculus, Vulcatius Gallicanus, Amianus Marcellinus ... Two commentators Erasmus (d. 1536) Egnazio and Giovanni Battista (1478-1553). Froben (1501-1563) is one of the leading publishers of rebirth and a worthy successor to Johann Froben, the first of the dynasty that established his printing in Basel in 1491, it is with him that was bound and worked Erasmus and Jerome Froben not fit in the fruits.

Palau 43729, dice: .la mayoría de los ejemplares se presentan incompletos o en mal estado, y como el texto es interesante y jamás se ha reproducido, los coleccionistas de obras catalanas sustituyen las faltas con hojas manuscritas o en facsímil. =Pere Miquel Carbonell i de Solsona (Barcelona, 1434 - 1517) fue un historiador, notario, humanista y poeta catalán. En 1458 fue nombrado notario público por el rey Alfonso V de Aragón, cargo que fue ratificado por Juan II de Aragón. Este último monarca le nombró en 1476 archivero y escriba real. Fue un entusiasta de los cambios que se produjeron en la cultura catalana a partir de mediados del siglo XV lo que le llevó a rechazar en parte la anterior tradición cultural. Era un gran aficionado a las letras clásicas y consiguió reunir una destacada biblioteca. Su obra más extensa es Chròniques de Espanya que empezó a redactar en 1495. Está basada en documentación del archivo real y fue concebida con un criterio literario. = Cròniques d&#146;Espanya (o de Catalunya), una història de la Corona d&#146;Aragó des dels orígens fins a l&#146;època de l&#146;autor. El primer llibre s&#146;obre amb un pròleg i narra els orígens del país, la història dels reis gots, els de Castella-Lleó, Navarra i Aragó, comtes de Barcelona i comtes-reis fins a Alfons III. Els llibres II-VI contenen els regnats de Pere III, els seus fills, el Magnànim i Joan II (guerra civil), i textos diversos. L&#146;autor es nega a historiar el regnat del seu coetani Ferran II, que queda en mans dels cronistes àulics de formació humanística.
