      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. Several original treatises also survive, and include a work On Fate, in which he argues against the Stoic doctrine of necessity; and one On the Soul. His commentaries on Aristotle were considered so useful that he was styled, by way of pre-eminence, "the commentator" (? ????????).Theodorus Gaza or Theodore Gazis (c. 1398 ?" c. 1475) (Greek: ???????? ?"????, Theodoros Gazis; Italian: Teodoro Gaza; Latin: Theodorus Gazes, gen.: Theodori Gazae), also called by the epithet Thessalonicensis (in Latin) and Thessalonikeus (in Greek), was a Greek humanist and translator of Aristotle, one of the Greek scholars who were the leaders of the revival of learning in the 15th century (the Palaeologan Renaissance).Condition:Condition is Good/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, some color touch up to boards and left side of spine label, stamp/old writing/signature to title page, rest of pages for age are very good, hinges/text block are very good/excellent, lacks first/last blanks, newer end pages, small signature and crayon number half erased to first end page.  Overall, for over 460 years old its in Good/Very Good Condition!!!

(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.

        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.

      Sebastian Martinez, Valladolid 1551 - 2 November 1551. Folio (268x183 mm). [8], 135 (of 136) leaves. Title in red and black with large woodcut coat-of-arms, sectional title on K2 with woodcut border signed 'S.M.', and 10 (of 12) large (three-quarter page) anatomical woodcuts in text, lacking leave R5 with two woodcuts (supplied in facsimile), last two leaves with cut offs (with loss of text), faded ink spotting to p. 87, some browning and spotting, dampstaining to gutter of last few leaves. Contemporary vellum with closures (restored, warped and spotted), later endpapers. Except for the paper faults, a good, clean copy of this rare and important work. ---- Cushing Vesalius (addenda) 598; NLM/Durling 2339; Garrison-Morton 378.01; Norman 1540; Waller 6647; Wellcome 4406 - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ILLUSTRATED SPANISH ANATOMICAL WORK, and the first work to introduce Vesalian anatomical figures to a Spanish audience. 'While Valverde di Hamusco's Historia de la composicion del cuerpo humano (1556) is often credited with introducing into Spain the Vesalian anatomical iconography coupled with a vernacular text, this honor actually belongs to Montana de Monserrate's Anothomia, whose twelve anatomical cuts included nine copies from either the Fabrica or the Epitome. These nine cuts, all of them reduced and simplified, included three Vesalian "musclemen", two plates representing the venous and arterial systems, two plates of the peripheral and central nervous systems, a figure combining Vesalian representations of the genito-urinary and thoracic organs, and a reversed copy of the Fabrica's first skeleton plate. Of the remaining three plates two, illustrating views of the skeleton, were derived from Berengario and Dryander, while the third, a crude semi-schematic representation of the thoracic and abdominal organs, is probably original. As the woodcut border is signed with the initials of the printer, Sebastian Martinez, it is likely that he executed the woodcuts. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Da un punto di vista filosofico il Figliucci si limita a riprendere l'aristotelismo, di cui è un serio conoscitore, non senza una certa simpatia per il platonismo fiorentino, di cui apprezza particolarmente l'interesse per il problema religioso".

      Venice Heironymous Scotus 1550-1551 - Quarto. 75ff. Woodcut device on title page and last leaf, several geometrical text figures, two ten-line and two five-line initial capitals. A book of commentary by the sixth-century Greek philosopher Philiponus, who also went by the name John the Grammarian for his scholarship on language. This copy of Commentaria features a colorful binding of Italian block-printed decorated paper by Remondini, likely from the eighteenth century, and an unusual pastepaper spine. Front and back covers each bear two repeated illustrations of architectural landmarks within oval frames, and these are surrounded by floral designs. One of the illustrations shows the famous bridge at Bassano designed by the great sixteenth-century Italian architect Palladio; the other is likely a depiction of La Rotonda in Vicenza, also designed by Palladio. Slight wear to lower extremity and upper corners, worm holes to bottom interior margins affecting about two-thirds of the leaves to varying degrees, else fine and bright. Bookplate.

Marca tipográfica en portada y capitulares xilográficas. Texto con apostillas marginales. Error de paginación (de la 8 salta a la 17), pero texto completo. Enc. en pergamino, lomera rotulada. Marcas de anterior poseedor. * Según consta en la portada trata de: la vida bienaventurada; de las siete artes liberales; de los preceptos y doctrinas; y de la providencia de Dios. Las últimas tres hojas, tras el índice, contienen una de las cartas que Séneca escribió a Lucilio Balbo y que los editores decidieron publicar "porque no quedasse aqui carta blanca". La traducción es obra de Alonso de Santa María de Cartagena (1384-1456), que destacó en las "traslaciones en vernácula lengua", como las llamaba, de numerosos autores clásicos. Cartagena encara a la perfección el espíritu humanista y la voluntad de iluminar a los cortesanos con el saber clásico. Así, tradujo no sólo los Tratados y Tragedias de Séneca, sino también varias obras de Cicerón, y entabló una larga polémica con Leonardo Bruni de Aretino sobre una traducción a la Ética de Aristóteles.

        Chronica del muy esclarecido Principe y Rey don Alfonso el Onceno deste nombre e de los Reyes que reinaron en Castilla y Leon, padre que fue del Ray don Pedro

      en Casa de Sebastian Martinez, Valladolid 1551 - A8 - Y8, Z10. 186 ff., in two columns, Folio. Illustrated with large detailed wood engraved frontispiece (in black and red) of King Alfonso on horseback, and title page, woodcut initials (some large), and decorative borders. With the bookplate of noted book collector Mary Macmillin Norton. The text is one of Spain's greatest texts on education, early manhood and administrative accomplishments, and is the life story of Alfonso XI (1311 - 1350) king of Leon and Castille. He was declared of age in 1325 and began a reign serving to strengthen the royal power. His father, Fernando IV, had died in 1312, and the country was ruled by a coalition of his grandmother, mother, and granduncles; they died one after the other with his grandmother being the last one to die in 1321, all the while the country was being looted by various factions. He was known among Castilian kings as the Avenger or the Implacable and considered ruthless with his enemies. He died prematurely of the Great Plague at the Siege of Gibraltar, a loss to the country since his rule brought stability to the Spain.In 1551 Charles V appointed Prince Phillip to administer the country's government. This provided an opportunity for the two booksellers Pedro Espinosa in Medina del Campo and Antonio da Zamora in Valladolid to issue this biography of King Alfonso XI. Even though the text was considered to be by Juan Nunez de Villazan, justiciary of Henrique II, but he apparently only copied the medieval manuscript narrating Alfonso's life. There is much "meat" in the book, not only about Alfonso but also about the times, attitudes and customs. Naturally, there is a lot for historians of military history but surprisingly students of "Women's Studies" will also find much of interest.

        La Prima parte dell'Historie del suo tempo di mons. Giovio Vescovo di Nocera. Tradotte per M. Lodovico Domenichi.

      Lorenzo Torrentino, Fiorenza 1551 - 4º, 2 vols. (vol. 1. Prima parte dell'historie . Bello frontis grabado, letras capitulares decoradas, (3) hojas, 849 p., (2) hojas; vol. 2. Seconda parte dell'historie . frontis grabado, (3) hojas, 1121 p.,(2) hojas). Iniciales decoradas, colofón tipográfico. Pergamino época, lomo rotulado. Cierres de cordel. Ejemplar bien conservado. Primera edición de la traducción al italiano de esta famosa obra del historiador y médico Giovio (1483-1552), amigo de Julián de Medicis, que al llegar a Papa (Clemente VII) le nombró obispo de Nocera. Es un título muy difícil de encontrar completo, pues es habitual ofrecer sólo la "Prima parte dell'historie .", de 1551, sin contar con la segunda, publicada en 1553. Dividida en 45 libros, o partes, fue inicialmente escrita en latín con el título "Historiarum sui temporis", publicada igualmente en Florencia, por el mismo Torrentino, en 1550. (Graesse III, y Brunet III entran este autor por Jovius). La traducción italiana fue realizada por L. Domenico, de Piacenza, que acabó haciéndose muy amigo de Giovio, hasta el punto que al ser condenado Domenico por la Inquisición, acusado de hereje pudo intervenir en su favor y cambiar la severidad de la sentencia. La obra contiene mucha información sobre las guerras en Italia en el s. XVI y sobre muchos otros hechos, producto de la erudición de Giovio conseguida con el intercambio epistolar con grandes figuras de la política y la cultura de su tiempo. El primer volumen presenta errores de paginación. Historia. Italia. History. Italy.

      Basileae in Officina Henrichi Petri, Mense Martio Anno M. D. LI [1551], Basileae - Folio: [88],447,[1], with two folding celestial maps and numerous woodcut illustrations of instruments for observing the skies and making astronomical measurements. Edited by Schreckenfuchs and augmented by his commentary. Beautifully bound in nineteenth-century continental mottled calf over patterned paper-covered boards, spine in seven compartments with central gilt ornament, red and green morocco lettering pieces, edges speckled blue, period marbled end papers, green silk page marker. A rare survival, with strong hinges (a few wormholes, largely unobtrusive), tight text-block, leaves browned (as usual) but supple, ample margins, and clear print throughout. The two celestial maps are excellent impressions. First two leaves reinforced at inner margin, minor damp stain to inner margin of title leaf, upper margin of pp. 393-447 damp stained and restored (but only affecting text on final leaf, with loss of header and six lines of right column). Provenance: on the front paste down, the engraved armorial book plate of the Riccati family ("CO Riccati"), either that of Conte Montino Riccati or more likely that of his son Count Jacopo Francesco Riccati (1676-1754), who devised the Riccati differential equation. Adams P2208. Zinner 2026. Kenney 146. Wightman, Science and the Renaissance, vol. 2, 542 c. Warner, "The Sky Explored: Celestial Cartography 1500-1800." In Latin. The rare, magnificent 1551 edition of Ptolemy's ‘Complete Works,’ including the immortal Almagest, complete with the magnificent maps by Honter of the constellations in the northern and southern hemispheres (in fact, the first geocentric celestial maps), According to Wightman, this is the "only edition, but based on the same printer's edition of 1541 (BM copy imperfect)." With annotations of the first three books of Almagest by Schreckenfuchs and of the remainder by Lucas Gauricus. (The Almagest—an Arabic portmanteau derived from the Greek for 'great astronomer'—is the most celebrated mathematical and astronomical treatise of antiquity. Ptolemy's catalogue of 1,028 stars is the most ancient accurate description of the heavens. The Dictionary of Scientific Biography describes the Almagest as "a masterpiece of clarity and method, superior to any ancient scientific textbook and with few peers from any period" and calls it the "dominant influence in theoretical astronomy end of the sixteenth century." Of the two celestial maps ("noteworthy for both their geocentrism and their novel constellation style"), Warner explains, "Whereas Durer's maps . . . showed the stellar universe as from the outside, Honter's were the first important printed maps showing the stars as seen from the earth."

Bellissimo esemplare a larghi margini di questa pregevole edizione. P. Giovio, comense, studiò a Pavia e a Padova sotto la guida di P. Pomponazzi, esercitò la professione di medico a Como, ma poi preferì dedicarsi alla raccolta di notizie e documenti storici. Negli elogia, biografie di uomini illustri e di letterati, è notevole l' ammirazione tutta umanistica, per i grandi uomini e per le loro imprese militari. Assai importanti le lettere, documento storico di prim' ordine per la vita letteraria e politica del Rinascimento. Ristampati più volte, gli Elogia sono una miniera non solo di dati biografici, ma sopratutto di costumi del tempo, giudizi, voci e pettegolezzi. Graesse, III, p. 490. Moreni, Annali di L.
