(Bible, Latin)
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

PERNEDER, Andreas
Ingolstadt, Weissenhorn, 1551.. Fol. Zus. über 400 Bl. Blindgeprägter Schweinslederband d. Zt. über Holzdeckeln mit 1 (von 2) Messingschließen (monogrammiert u. datiert "H. E." und "1557").. 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 e … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

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 vor … [Click Below for Full Description]

His writings cover many subjects, including physics, metaphysics, poetry, theater, music, logic, rhetoric, linguistics, politics, government, ethics, biology, and zoology.

(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.

NICOLAY, Nicolas de.
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.

Appian of Alexandria
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.

ARISTOTLE.
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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Plato
Froben, 1551. A highly important edition with the commentary of Simon Grynaeus, the celebrated Swiss astronomer and geographer. Replete with large historiated and figurative capital letters throughout. Folio, in a very handsome binding of antique calf over boards. (12), 952 + (48) index. A handsome copy in pleasing condition, well preserved, fresh and unpressed internally. A FINE AND HANDSOME COPY. Cited 'for the elegance of the impression' by Froeben. THE KING OF PHILOSOPHERS. ONE OF THE SUPREME TEXTS OF THE RENAISSANCE. Preceded with the dedication of the great curator S. Grynaeus, the proem dedication to Lorenzo de Medici and the important Life of Plato written by Ficino the original translator of the manuscripts into Latin; index at the end; 36 of the Platonic dialogues and works(the Dialogues, 10 books of the Republic, 12 books of the Laws and 12 of the Letters), edited and with the commentary of Marsilio Ficino. A highly important edition of the Opera of Plato with the translation of Marsilio Ficino, the first and most important of the modern epoch, in itself one of the primary movers of the humanism of the Renaissance. In 1462 by order and gift of Cosimo de Medici and with support of the Academy the manuscript translations were begun. They were concluded under the beneficence of Lorenzo the Magnificent. The translation, which was completed in the 1470's contributed in great measure to the rediscovery of critical thinking and of the disciplines of Greek scholarship. Ficino had began his translation under the patronage of Cosimo de Medici in 1463. The work was complete … [Click Below for Full Description]
