        NEW HERBALL Wherin Are Conteyned the Names of Herbes in Greke, Latin, Englysh, Duch, Frenche, and Potecaries and Herbaries Latin... [With] THE SECONDE PART of William Turners Herball... [With] A BOOK OF THE NATURES and Properties as Well of the Bathes in England as of Other Bathes in Germany and Italy

      London [and] Cologne: Steven Mierdman [and] Arnold Birckman, 1551, 1562, 1562. 3 books partnered and bound together. First Edition of the First Essay on scientific botany in England, First Edition of the second book with the First Edition of the work on bathes (which is typically included as park of the second book but with separate title-page). Printed in Black Letter, the title to first part, within elaborate woodcut border, large printer's device on title to second part and the book on bathes. Illustrated throughout with impressive woodcut illustrations of herbs and plants. Also decorated with large initials throughout. Folio in sixes (264 X 176MM), handsomely bound in later calf in expert period style, the covers with blind tooled frames and roll tooled bands, the spines with elaborate antique style gilt tooling in compartments between wide and tall raised bands, gilt lettering in one compartment, a handsome binding. A very handsome copy of this very scarce and valuable work. Lacking A2-6 and O2 of the first book; B2, C5, Y2, Y6, Aa1, Cc1 and the blanks A4 and Ff4 of the second and the final blank after the work on bathes. Title-page to Book One mounted and bound in on a stub, with some margins cropped, some worming in inner gutter, some soiling, occasional repairs or other minor flaws, final leaf of Book 1 (table) torn at the outside bottom corner with some loss to text. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of the first clear, systematic survey of English plants, and with their admirable woodcuts (mainly copied from Leonhart Fuchs's 1542 De historia Stirpium) and detailed observations based on Turner's own field studies put the herbal on an altogether higher footing than in earlier works. At the same time, however, Turner included an account of their "uses and vertues", and in his preface admits that some will accuse him of divulging to the general public what should have been reserved for a professional audience. For the first time, a herbal was available in England in the vernacular, from which people could identify the main English plants without difficulty.

Jahrhunderts, herausgegen von dem Mainzer Erzbischof Sebastian von Heusenstamm. II. Frühe Ausgabe dieser zuerst 1500 erschienen Zusammenstellung der Kirchengeschichte des Eusebius und der angelsächsischen Kirchengeschichte des Beda Venerabilis. Der Einbanddekor besteht aus verschiedenen Rollen, die auf Vorder- und Rückseite leicht etwas variieren. Auf beiden Seiten je zweimal findet sich eine Rolle mit Christus Salvator [GRACIA P CHRISTV], Paulus [P DOCTOR GENCI]mit Engelskopf, Moses mit Gesetzestafeln [LEX P MOSEN] und Johannes dem Täufer [ECCE AGNVS DEI]. Auf der Vorderseite sind zwischen diesen Rollen mit Salvator etc. zwei schmalere Rollen mit Laubwerk und Köpfen platziert, auf der Rückseite ist eine Rolle mit allegorischen Figuren, nämlich Lastern: Avaritia (Geiz), Pigritia (Faulheit), Superbia (Hochmut) und Invidia (Neid) dazwischen gesetzt. Die Salvatorrolle bildet auf beiden Deckeln oben wie unten einen quer gesetzten Abschluss. Der Versuch, den Einband einem konkreten Binder zuzuschreiben, bereitet Probleme. Die EBDB kennt nur eine Rolle mit der Figur der Pigritia, nämlich von dem Heidelberger „Ottheinrich-Binder" Jörg Bernhardt (w004348 / r003378); bei Haebler taucht diese Figur gar nicht auf. Die Salvatorrolle entspricht einer, die dem Tübinger Buchbinder Wolf Conrad Schwickart (w002973) zugeschrieben wird (r001494 / Kyriss AGB 8 [1967], Sp. 406, Nr. 12).

        Diverse imprese tratte di gli emblemi

      Guillaume Rouillé, Lyon 1551 - 8vo, pp. 191, [1]. Italic letter, little Roman; title and printer’s device within rich architectural woodcut border, couple of historiated initials; 180 high-quality woodcut illustrations, including eleven trees; every page but one within an ornamental, all’antica, architectural or grotesque border, all different; occasionally light browning, very light damp stain at head of some ll., few leaves slightly foxed; small marginal tear to p. 99, just affecting border. A good copy in contemporary limp vellum; yapped edge, contemporary ms title and monogram ‘WE’ to spine; rear cover a bit stained, lacking ties; on title, contemporary ex libris ‘di Giulio de Nobili’ and shelfmark ‘n. 491’ in his hand; A.H. Bright’s bookplate to front pastedown. Second edition of the Italian translation of a Renaissance masterpiece, the collection of emblems by Andrea Alciato. Alciato (1492-1550) was a prominent humanist and professor of law from Milan. His historical and philological investigation of Roman law was crucial for the revival of ancient sources in juridical studies, influencing in particular the sixteenth-century French school. His Emblemata, first published in 1531, attained incredible and long-lasting success throughout Europe, with many vernacular translations and hundreds of editions over more than four centuries. The work consists of a collection of allegorical depictions with explanatory concise Latin verses disclosing a moral teaching. While emblems had been created in the Middle Age, the use of classical mythology as the main literary and iconographic reference was an original and distinctive contribution by Alciato. The Emblemata were so successful and influential that they truly marked the rise of a new literary genre. This Italian translation of the work was undertaken for the sake of people ignorant of Latin and dedicated to the Venetian Doge Francesco Donà. Accomplished by Jean Marqual – a French bookseller active in Venice and closely connected to Gabriele Golito -, it was curiously printed for the first time in Lyon, in a joint edition by Rouillé and Macé Bonhomme in 1549. Its beautiful woodcuts are the same as those in the princeps. Many of them bear at the bottom the initials ‘P.V.’, regarded nowadays as the signature of the Parisian engraver Pierre Vase, otherwise known as Eskrich. Eskrich was a key collaborator of Rouillé and a very skilled artist, able to replicate the style of his illustrious colleague Bernard Salomon. Giulio de Nobili (1537-1612), former owner of this book, was a learned Florentine patrician. Following his studies at the University of Pisa, he became senator and member of the order of St Stephen. He wrote for his son Pierantonio an unpublished moral treatise in Italian, warning him against the vices and troubles of adult life. The Galateo by Giovanni Della Casa is clearly De Nobili’s main source, but it is very likely that he took advantage of the educational mottos and examples provided by this translation of Alciato’s Emblemata.

        OMNIA DIVINI PLATONIS OPERA TRALATIONE MARSILII FICINI, EMENDATIONE ET AD GRAECUM CODICEM COLLATIONE SIMONIS GRYNAEI Summa diligentia repurgata, quibus subjectus est Index quam copiosissimus.

      Basileae, apud Hier. Frobenium et Nic. Episcopium, 1551 In-4 (mm. 336x226), mz. pelle settecentesca, dorso a cordoni con fregi e tit. oro su tassello, 6 cc.nn., 952 pp.num., 24 cc.nn. (Indice), con marca tipografica al frontespizio e al verso dell?'ultima c., ornato da pregevoli grandi capilettera figur. a vignetta, inc. su legno. Questa edizione, introdotta da: una dedica del curatore S. Grynaeus, un proemio dedicato a Lorenzo de Medici e la ?"vita?" di Platone scritta da Marsilio Ficino, contiene 37 opere platoniche (inclusi i Dialoghi, i 10 libri ?"de Republica?", i 12 libri ?"de Legibus?" e 12 Lettere) e i Commenti al ?"Convivium?" ed al ?"Timaeus?" del Ficino, il quale prepose l?'?"Argumentum?" ad ogni Dialogo. Ristampa della prima edizione di Froben del 1532. ?"La traduzione in latino delle opere di Platone, fatta da Marsilio Ficino, è considerata la più importante di ogni tempo. Il filosofo (1433-99) si dedicò interamente al platonismo quando (1458) Cosimo de?' Medici gli accordò, con la sua protezione, anche i mezzi per compiere tali studi. Iniziata la traduzione dei dialoghi platonici nella villa di Careggi (donatagli da Cosimo), egli alternava il lavoro con conversazioni di argomento filosofico, politico, letterario con gli amici. Da queste discussioni ebbe origine l?'Accademia platonica?". Così Diz. Treccani,IV, p. 728. Cfr. Graesse,V,320 - Brunet,IV,695 cita altre ediz. con ?"la version très extimée de Ficin?". Con fiorit. o uniformi arross. ma complessivamente un discreto esemplare su carta forte.

        Biblia, Interprete Sebastiano Castalione. Una cum eiusdem Annotationibus

      Basileae [Basel]: Joannem Oporinum (per Jacobum Parcum), 1551. First edition of this translation. [6] leaves, 582, 576, 298, 202 cols. Lacking leaf of text DDD1 and final leaf iiii4 (Register and Colophon). Text in two columns, with large initial capitals. 1 vols. Folio. Early 19th-century quarter calf and marbled paper boards. Waterstained to a varying degree throughout, title-page soiled. Bookplate of Bishop John Murphy of Cork, dated 1815; and a discreet institutional stamp repeated several times in text and on endpapers. First edition of this translation. [6] leaves, 582, 576, 298, 202 cols. Lacking leaf of text DDD1 and final leaf iiii4 (Register and Colophon). Text in two columns, with large initial capitals. 1 vols. Folio. One Copy in America. Sebastien Chateillon (1515 - 1563) was a reformed theologian and preacher, one of the most learned men of his age, and one of the earliest advocates of religious tolerance in an age which understood little of the concept. Chateillon's translations of the Bible into Latin and French earned him the implacable enmity of his former friend, Jean Calvin; and Chateillon's defense of Michael Servetus - burned at the stake by Calvin and his followers - did little to heal the rift. Chateillon's Latin translation of the bible -- a completely 'independent' effort - is rare in America; we find only one copy (Library of Congress). A truly rare and unusual book, by an early champion of religious tolerance. Darlow & Moule 6131; Adams B 1045; Bibles Paris, 873

Sechste Ausgabe (2. Teil = Gerichtlicher Prozeß: siebte) der fünf juristischen Schriften Perneders, die - jede mit eigenem Titelblatt, Register und Kollation - fast immer, wie hier, als Sammelband herausgegeben wurden. Perneder, wohl um 1500 geboren und 1540 gestorben, hatte versucht, "das gesamte Privat-, Prozeß-, Lehn- und Strafrecht seiner Zeit in einem in deutscher Sprache geschriebenen Handbuch darzustellen" (NDB). Sein früher Tod verhinderte eine letztgültige Bearbeitung durch den Autor. Der Ingolstädter Jurist Wolfgang Hunger stellte die hinterlassenen Manuskripte für den Druck (zuerst 1544) zusammen; die von ihm gewählte Reihenfolge wurde auch später in der Regel beibehalten. Der Perneder avancierte zum führenden Lehrbuch der Zeit. Er wandte sich an gelehrte Juristen und solche ohne fachliche Ausbildung, denen mit einem deutschsprachigen Handbuch der Zugang zu den Lehren des römisch-kanonischen Rechts geöffnet wurde. Allein die von Hunger herausgegebene und mit Einleitungen versehene Edition wurde über zwanzig Mal herausgebracht; weitere Auflagen erschienen bis ins 17. Jahrhundert hinein. Der erste Teil (Institutiones) ist "ein populäres Compendium des geltenden Rechts", d. h. der Institutionen Justinians, ergänzt um die deutschrechtlichen Normen. Es folgt eine Übersetzung und Erläuterung des "röm.-kanonischen Prozeßrechts unter Einbeziehung der Reichskammergerichtsordnung und einzelner Territorialrechte" (NDB). Auf das Kompendium des Lehnrechts folgt an vierter Stelle die sog. Halsgerichtsordnung, also das Strafrecht, auf der Grundlage der "Carolina" Karls V. Am Ende steht die "Summa Rolandina", das ist eine Bearbeitung der Abhandlung zur Notarkunst, "Summa artis notariae" des Rolandus Passagerii. - VD16, P 1498, 1482, 1515 u.

        SUMMULA CAIETANI. Reverendiss. D.N. Thomae De Vio Caietani, Cardinalis S.Xysti, perquam docta, resoluta ac compendiosa de peccatis Summula. Additis (ut vocant) Summarijs, & copiosa rerum praecipuarum Indice, omnia multò quàm antehac castigatiora.

      Testo latino. Cm.12,4x7,6. Pg.(40), 606; (248). Sobria legatura in piena pergamena rigida. Tassello con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso. Il volume contiene anche, del medesimo Autore ma con frontespizio autonomo, "Ientacula Reverendiss. Dn. Thomae De Vio Caietani, cardinalis S.Xysti, praeclarissima LXIIII. Notabilium sententiarum Novi Testamenti literalis expositio, in duodecim capita distincta: quae totidem Ientacula Novi Testamenti, ratione operis initio reddita, inscribuntur". Lugduni, Apud haeredes Iacobi Giuntae, 1551. Pg.(248). Al colophon all'ultima carta la segnalazione tipografica "Lugduni, Excudebat Theobaldus Paganus, 1550". Fresco esemplare, in eccellenti condizioni di conservazione. Il Cardinale domenicano Tommaso De Vio (Gaeta, 1469 - 1534), detto Cajetan per la sua origine, dopo essere stato docente di teologia a Padova e a Ferrara si trasferì a Roma, divenendo un personaggio influentissimo nella Curia vaticana del suo tempo. Fu Governatore generale dell'Ordine domenicano tra il 1508 e il 1518, fu fatto Cardinale nel '17 e Vescovo di Gaeta nel '19, ed ebbe un ruolo fondamentale contro le istanze riformiste: redasse infatti personalmente la bolla di scomunica contro Martin Lutero, e contribuì alla elezione dell'Imperatore Carlo V. Fu sempre lui a sanzionare la validità del matrimonio tra Enrico VIII ed Eleonora d'Aragona e riuscì anche a sopravvivere al Sacco di Roma. Il presente costituisce il suo testo esegetico universalmente più noto: scritto nel 1523, ebbe grande diffusione, e successivamente fu messo all'Indice nel 1559. Il titolo originario è "Summula Peccatorum" e nasce come raccolta di notazioni alla omonima "Summula" di San Tommaso, poi divenne nell'uso comune "Summula Cajetani". In esso viene elencata, e suddivisa per gravità, e quindi passibili di scomunica, una gran mole di peccati: meretricio, usura, sodomia, coito con animali, eresia, adulterio, inquisizione, alchimia, incesto, apostasia, crudeltà, scisma, auspici demoniaci, sortilegi, malefici, apostasia, etc. Nella vasta parte dedicata alla eresia luterana si definiscono con chiarezza i principali dogmi controriformisti.

        Omnia quae extant opera, praeter Geographiam, quam non dissimili forma nuperrime aedidimus: summa cura & diligentia castigata ab Erasmo Osualdo Schrekhenfuchsio [Erasmus Oswald Scheckenfuchs].

      Basel, ( H. Petri, 1551).. 44 Bll., 447 S. mit zahlreichen Textholzschnitten. 2 doppelblattgr. Holzschnitt-Tafeln. 4°. Flex. Pgmt. der Zeit mit hs. Rückenschild und 2 intakten Bändern (rechtes unteres Eck erneuert, etw. fleckig und leicht knittrig).. Erste vom Baseler Astronomen Erasmus Oswald Schreckenfuchs herausgegebenen und kommentierten Ausgabe der astronomischen und naturwissenschaftlichen Schriften des Claudius Ptolemaeus (insgesamt zweite Gesamtausgabe dieser Schriften). - VD 16 P5205. STC 718. Adams P2208. Houzeau/L. 881. Zinner 2026. - Claudius Ptolemaeus [Klaudios Ptolemaios] war der bedeutendste Antike Astronom und Geograph. Unter den Werken des Ptolemaeus ragt sein Handbuch der Astronomie, das sogenannte Almagest, heraus. Dieses Werk systematisierte die bis dahin erfolgten astronomischen Forschungen in einer gleichermaßen mathematisch-technisch, wie auch methodisch herausragenden Form, so dass es für etwa 1500 Jahre das unbestrittene Grundlagenwerk der Astronomie wurde. Die ptolemaeische Astronomie beruhte auf der Theorie epizyklischer Kreise. Auf Grundlage dieser Theorie ließen sich die Planetenbewegungen mit hoher Genauigkeit berechnen. Eine ähnliche große Bedeutung wie das Almagest hat sein Tetrabiblos, in dem er sich mit der Astrologie beschäftigte. Dieses Werk wurde sozusagen zur Bibel der Astrologen. Für Ptolemaeus war die Astrologie der physische Teil seines Weltbildes, die Erkenntnis der Natur und der Eigenschaften der Himmelskörper und ihrer Wirkung in einer als Einheit gedachten Welt. Die magische Astrologie war ihm aber fremd. Als Herausgeber der vorliegenden Ausgabe fungierte Erasmus Oswald Schreckenfuchs (1511 - 1579). Dieser studierte in Wien, Ingolstadt und Tübingen und lehrte danach Hebräisch an der Universität Tübingen, wurde Professor für Hebräisch, Rhetorik, Mathematik und Astronomie an der Universität Basel und später in gleicher Funktion an der Universität Freiburg. Schreckenfuchs zählte zu den ersten Anhängern des Kopernikus in Deutschland. Zu seinen Schülern zählte der schweizerische Anatom und Botaniker Caspar Bauhin. Schreckenfuchs war der Herausgeber von Werken bedeutender antiker Astronomen (u.a. Claudii Ptolemaei, omnia quae extant opera, praeter geographiam [...], 1551), die er mit eigenen Kommentaren versah. Zusammen mit Sebastian Münster bearbeitete er hebräische mathematische Texte und übertrug sie in die lateinische Sprache (u.a. Sphaera mundi autore Rabbi Abrahamo Hispano filio R. Haijae, 1546). - Enthält je eine Karte des nördlichen und des südlichen Sternenhimmels von Johannes Honter (die nördliche mit 1531 datiert, die südliche mit dem Monogramm J H C), welche auch schon für die Ptolemaeus Ausgabe von 1541 verwendet wurden. "These two woodcut maps are noteworthy for both their geocentrism and their novel constellation style" (Warner, Sky explored. 123). Die Textholzschnitte zeigen Diagramme und diverse geometrische Konstruktionen. - Titel mit hinterlegter Fehlstelle (ohne Textberührung). Vorderer Buchinnendeckel mit eingeklebter Bibliothekssignatur. Leicht gebräunt und fleckig.

Marca tipografia con serpente arrotolato su bastone ripetuto ad ambedue i frontespizi. Fresco e saldo esemplare. Celebre medico e umanista, Pietro Andrea Matthioli (Siena, 1501 - 1578) si laureò in medicina a Venezia nel 1523. Trasferitosi in Trentino, in Val di Non, divenne medico personale del vescovo Clesio. Fu nel 1533 che iniziò a lavorare alla sua opera più conosciuta, appunto il "Dioscoride", che vide la luce a stampa nel 1544 per i tipi di Niccolò Bascarini. Mattioli ampliò a piante sino allora sconosciute le ricerche di Dioscoride, e il suo testo divenne, per svariati secoli, un caposaldo nel campo della botanica medicinale. La seconda edizione è del 1548, ed in questa si trova il sesto libro, che tratta degli antidoti contro i veleni, da alcuni considerato apocrifo. La rinomata edizione illustrata fu pubblicata, sempre dal Valgrisi, nel 1555. Mattioli morì di peste nel 1578.

His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology. Together with Plato and Socrates (Plato's teacher), Aristotle is one of the most important founding figures in Western philosophy. Aristotle's writings were the first to create a comprehensive system of Western philosophy, encompassing morality, aesthetics, logic, science, politics, and metaphysics.The Problems is an Aristotelian or possibly pseudo-Aristotelian collection of problems written in a question and answer format as its authenticity has been under questioning. The collection, gradually assembled by the peripatetic school, reached its final form anywhere between the third century BC to the 6th century AD. The work is divided by topic into 38 sections, and the whole contains almost 900 problems.  Later writers of Problemata include Plutarch, Alexander of Aphrodisias, and Cassius Iatrosophista.Alexander of Aphrodisias (fl. 200 AD) was a Peripatetic philosopher and the most celebrated of the Ancient Greek commentators on the writings of Aristotle. He was a native of Aphrodisias in Caria, and lived and taught in Athens at the beginning of the 3rd century, where he held a position as head of the Peripatetic school. He wrote many commentaries on the works of Aristotle, extant are those on the Prior Analytics, Topics, Meteorology, Sense and Sensibilia, and Metaphysics.

      apud Hier. Frobenium et Nic. Episcopium 1551 In - 4 (mm. 336x226), mz. pelle settecentesca, dorso a cordoni con fregi e tit. oro su tassello, 6 cc.nn., 952 pp.num., 24 cc.nn. (Indice), con marca tipografica al frontespizio e al verso dell?ultima c., ornato da pregevoli grandi capilettera figur. a vignetta, inc. su legno. Questa edizione, introdotta da: una dedica del curatore S. Grynaeus, un proemio dedicato a Lorenzo de Medici e la ?vita? di Platone scritta da Marsilio Ficino, contiene 37 opere platoniche (inclusi i Dialoghi, i 10 libri ?de Republica?, i 12 libri ?de Legibus? e 12 Lettere) e i Commenti al ?Convivium? ed al ?Timaeus? del Ficino, il quale prepose l??Argumentum? ad ogni Dialogo. Ristampa della prima edizione di Froben del 1532. ?La traduzione in latino delle opere di Platone, fatta da Marsilio Ficino, è considerata la più importante di ogni tempo. Il filosofo (1433 - 99) si dedicò interamente al platonismo quando (1458) Cosimo de? Medici gli accordò, con la sua protezione, anche i mezzi per compiere tali studi. Iniziata la traduzione dei dialoghi platonici nella villa di Careggi (donatagli da Cosimo), egli alternava il lavoro con conversazioni di argomento filosofico, politico, letterario con gli amici. Da queste discussioni ebbe origine l?Accademia platonica?. Così Diz. Treccani,IV, p. 728. Cfr. Graesse,V,320 - Brunet,IV,695 cita altre ediz. con ?la version très extimée de Ficin?. Con fiorit. o uniformi arross. ma complessivamente un discreto esemplare su carta forte.

        De schipvaert ende reysen gedaen int landt van Turckyen, ...Antwerp, Willem Silvius, 1576. Small 4to. Title-page with a woodcut pictorial frame, and 61 full-page woodcut costume plates with letterpress. 17th-century (?) vellum.

      Colas 2205; Mortimer (French) 386 note & (German) 319 note; cf. Atabey 870-872 (other eds). First issue of the rare first Dutch edition of Nicolay's observations when he accompanied the French King François I's 1551 embassy to Constantinople, with special attention to the costumes. The plates of the first (French) edition of 1567, designed by Nicolay himself, were "the first to represent the costume of the Near East in detail" (Mortimer). Nicolay, in 105 chapters arranged as four books, then describes the voyage and the lands and peoples seen, but the costumes of people from various regions, religions, occupations, social strata, etc., clearly fascinated him more than anything else. Many chapters are devoted to individual groups of people, and these are nearly always illustrated with one, two or even three full-page woodcuts showing their styles of costume. Slightly browned, some waterstains and dark patches, one plate damaged, the binding soiled. Overall still a good copy of a finely illustrated work on Near Eastern costumes.

        ROMAIKON KELTIKE - ROMANARUM HISTORIARUM

      Paris: Charles Estienne 1551., 1551. The Editio Princeps of Appian in the original Greek. Appian was a second-century A.D. Roman historian who wrote in Greek - his only extant work is this history of Rome. The Latin edition was first published in 1468 but this 1551 Estienne edition represents the first publication of the work in its original language.This is a very clean copy of a work which has been called a very beautiful edition by bibliographers. This is one of only two Greek texts printed by Charles Estienne (the other being a Greek New Testament in 1553). It contains three sizes of Greek type and is well-regarded as one of the great examples of early Greek printing.Bound in half brown calf and marbled boards - probably in the early 20th century. Neat bookplate of noted collector Frances Hamill affixed to inside front cover. Boards mildly rubbed; interior clean and fresh with nice white pages and full margins. Book measures 9x13 inches. Six raised bands on spine.

        L'Ethica d'Aristotile Tradotta in Lingua Vulgare Fiorentino et Comentata per Bernardo Segni.

      In Vinegia Appresso Bartholomeo detto l'Imperadore & Francesco suo genero 1551 - Small 8vo, 157 x 102 mms., 343 + [5] leaves, title within decorative woodcut, contemporary vellum (worn and defective); last leaf of index with piece torn from lower corner (not affecting text), lower panel on binding missing, vellum a bit cracked and worn and rear cover with lower portion removed. With the decorative plate of Francisci Bracchini of the recto of the front free end-paper and the smaller bookplate of Marino Parenti on the verso. A rather shabby binding, but a clean and bright text. The humanist scholar Bernardo Segni (1504 - 1588) translated a number of Aristotle's works, but he was just one of several who were doing so. "Segni then outlines some main themes of Aristotle's Ethics, distinguishing in the first place active from speculative happiness and claiming that the speculative kind is more noble than the active. However, Segni continues, since most people find the speculative kind unattainable, his discussion will center on practical, active happiness, which is the result of exercising virtues such as temperance, fortitude, and justice. Segni also emphasizes two important points about moral virtue: not only must it be actively exercised, rather than lying dormant, but it can only be produced freely, that is, not through compulsion. Segni thus sets up a calculated swipe at Lutheranism, with its asumptions that the will is not free and that faith alone is able to bring one to eternal happiness" (David Lines: "Rethinking Renaissance Aristotelianism: Bernardo Segni's Ethica, the Florentine Academy, and the Vernacular in Sixteenth-Century Italy" in Renaissance Quarterly 66, 3, (2013). Lines concludes by noting "Thus, from the philosophical, philological, interpretive, and visual points of view, Segni's Ethica presents its readers with a number of interesting surprises. The teaching and publishing programs of the Accademia Fiorentina (and of other academies) continue to require investigation, but the importance of the vernacular element within the landscape of Renaissance Aristotelianism is becoming increasingly clear, as this and other recent studies can confirm. Although scholars have done well to emphasize the importance of Renaissance Aristotelianism, this movement was not confined to Latin, university-based works: those written in the vernacular also deserve to be inventoried and studied in detail. More generally, scholars need to pay closer attention to the interactions between vernacular and Latin Aristotelianism. Just as the category of vernacular humanism now makes perfect sense,154 so the label of Aristotelianism will need to be understood anew, as embracing both Latin and vernacular works." Segni's edition was first published in a quarto in 1550. CNCE 2932; Adams; A-37; BM STC Italian, 1465-1600,; p. 46.
