AEGINETA, Paulus.
1551. THE Encyclopedia of Medical Knowledge in Arab World "The object of our art being to restore those parts which are in a preternatural state to their natural, the operation of castration professes just the reverse. But since we are sometimes compelled against our will by persons of high rank to perform the operation, we shall briefly describe the mode of doing it." - Paul of Aegina on Castration, Chapter 6. Paulus Aegineta was a 7th-century Byzantine physician. This important collection of works was edited by Alban Thorer, a Swiss Renaissance philologist. This is a second edition of the original 1546 printing. This work is a compilation of former writers. Byzantine medicine drew largely from Greek and Roman tradition, but this work contains new ideas on bone structures. The work would become the standard text throughout the Arabic world for the next 800 years and was considered the most complete encyclopedia of medical knowledge. The preface states the contents of the whole works which includes: hygiene, powers of food, doctrine of fevers, identifying excrement discharges, skin afflictions, intestinal worms, treating venomous animal bites, treating hydrophobia (rabies), surgery, extracting weapons from the skull, properties of various medicines, and how to make medicine. His surgical techniques included methods for castration and reconstructive surgeries performed on hermaphrodites.

I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Marcus Manilius was a first century Roman poet known for his famous collection of astrological poetry 'Astronomica.' This book is thought to be the first extensive work on astronomy and astrology - it describes various celestial phenomena and goes into great detail on the zodiac. It also considers many of the celestial theories proposed by Xenophanes and Hesiod and their perceptions of creation. Other topics of discussion include formation of constellations, placement of sun and moon, emphasis on the Milky Way, exploration of comets and meteors as an omen for earthly disasters and plagues. This exceedingly rare 1551 edition was published in Lyon by Tournes and was edited by Antoine du Moulin an important French poet and translator. He was the first translator for Jean de Tournes publishing and his translation of Ancient Greek and Roman texts were used for centuries following the mid-1500s. This edition was published the same year that Moulin died. This book is bound with 'De Memoria Reparanda' by Italian physician Guglielmo Grataroli; a short essay on medical remedies, and the influence of behavior of health. [Attributes: First Edition]

Prefaced in verse and edited by Sebastian Brant, translated by Stephan Vigilius and the distichs at the head of each chapter were written by Johannes Pinicianus. The 260 splendid woodcuts were created by the so-called "Petrarca-master" Hans Weiditz, who was commissioned by printers of Augsburg for the first German edition of the book in 1532. Some of the woodcuts also appeared in different Cicero translation printed in Augsburg until the blocks were eventually purchased by Egenolff, the publisher of the present edition, who used them in at least four editions. They were later passed from one Frankfurt printer to another, appearing in several further editions until the beginning of the 17th century.

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).

Woodcut vignette on title-page and before acknowledgements showing Christ at the Column with the Instruments of the Passion; and the editor Emser kneeling before him, with his coat of arms at his feet. Between Jesus and the theologian, a cartouche with a motto combining two verses from the Book of Psalms (n. 118 and 26): “iniquos odio habui, lege[m] aut[em] tua[m] dilexi. Odi[vi] eccla[siam] malignantium, etcu[m] impiis no[n] sedebo”. Several charming woodcuts by Anton Woensam of Worms: four portraits of the evangelists and others for the epistles. Decorated initials in 3 sizes, the largest ones particularly beautiful. Capital spaces with guide-letters, many printed maniculae and side-notes. Printer’s mark on colophon; without the final blanks, a few marginal repairs in first quire, some waterstains at beginning and light spotting at end.

Upper joint split at head, tail of spine slightly defective and some light stains. An excellent and clean copy of this scarce edition.

OLYMPIODORUS, JOHANNES PHILOPONUS
apud haer. Aldo I Manuzio expensis Federico Torresano, 1551. FIRST EDITION. Folio. Two works in one, ff. (iv) 139 (i). Roman letter, little Greek. Printer's device to t-p and last, 18 woodcut geometrical schemas, decorated initials. Marginal staining to some ll. where an attempt has been made to wash cut early marginalia, affecting text in places. Very good, well-margined copy in half purple roan over pink pasteboards, c.1800, usual rubbing. Casemark to fly, ecclesiastical library stamps (C18-C19) to lower margin of t-p ('Bibl[ioteca] S[an] Silve[stro]' and one illegible), early marginalia in places generally legible, the odd pencil annotation. Very good, well-margined copy of the first Latin translations of Olympiodorus's commentary and Johannes Philoponus's 'Scholia' to Aristotle's 'Meteorologica'. Translated by Giovanni Battista Camozzi and dedicated to Pope Julius III, this composite work was sometimes bound with the Greek 'editio princeps' of the same year. Sixteenth-century editions and translations of Greek commentaries sought to recover ancient interpretations of Aristotelian natural philosophy and thus divest it of the Averroistic and Scholastic readings of the medieval period. Olympiodorus the Younger (c.495-570) was a philosopher and astrologer at the School of Alexandria, and the author of numerous commentaries to Plato and Aristotle based on his lectures. Written after 565, 'In meteora Aristotelis commentarii' is the only ancient commentary on 'Meteorologica' which has survived in its entirety.

These new Royal Greek types, know as "grecs du roi," were based by Garamond on the script of the Cretan Angelo Vergecio, a well-know calligrapher in the employ of François I. These cursive Greek types are universally acknowledged as the finest ever cut. This volume is generally cited as the supreme example of the use of the Royal Greek types; it is, in fact, the first classical text printed in all the three sizes of the "grecs du roi"."

Basileae (Basel): Nicolas Brylinger, [1551?]. Octavo, 18.75 x 12 cm, ff. [4 of 8], 499 (of 500), [9 of 25]. The title page is missing, also the first leaf of text (Genesis 1), and some leaves from the preliminaries and from the index. Brylinger was a noted printed of this important city and issued numerous editions of the Latin Bible. The text block has been trimmed from 21 cm to 18.75, presumably in the width as well, but in no way affecting the text or shoulder notes which extend into the margin. Latin glosses appear on the margins throughout in a contemporary hand. The binding, pigskin over boards, appears to be original, or at least contemporary with the presumed printing date. The binding has raised bands, and shows evidence of two clasps, now gone. In addition the boards are rather elaborately incised with panels and floral motifs, and a couple of other panels, one giving a series of letters, the other showing the date of 1522. Paper shows a slight browning from age. The inside of both front and back boards have considerable writing on them. Not listed in Darlow & Moule, Adams, or OCLC, but the German site KVK lists a 1551 printing, which is most probably this. One appearance at auction, also an incomplete copy. A scarce printing in an original binding.

Porzio (Portius), Simone
Florence, Lorenzo Torrentino, 1551. 4to. 67, (1) pp. With a figural woodcut initial. Marbled wrappers. First edition of this rare treatise on human action and the voluntariness of man's ethical dispositions: "an investigation of whether the formation of a virtuous or vicious habit is due to our freedom of choice. The treatise is divided into fourteen chapters and begins with a doxographical survey in which the Aristotelian position is opposed to the doctrines of the Stoics and the Platonists. What these latter positions have in common, according to Porzio, is that they both deny the complex nature of the human being, which he forcefully depicts as inescapably composed of both rationality and materiality. His analysis of the limits of human freedom touches upon Renaissance concepts of man and his place in the universe, as well as combines a distinctive approach to Aristotle?s teaching with an heterodox attitude towards divine grace" (L. Casini, "En renässansaristoteliker om den mänskliga frihetens gränser", in: Lychnos [2009], pp. 49-67, at p. 61). Porzio (1497-1554), a student of Pietro Pompanazzi and variously a writer on medical subjects, taught philosophy in Pisa and Naples. He held that the soul is the individual and corruptible form of the human body. - A finely printed work, showing some slight brownstaining throughout. From the library of the historian of medicine Walter Pagel (1898-1983). - Edit 16, CNCE 34585. BM-STC Italian 537. Adams P 1957. Durling 3741.

Florenz, Lorenzo Torrentino, 1551. 98 SS., letztes weißes Blatt. Mit figürlicher Holzschnitt-Initiale. Marmorbroschur. 4to. Erste und einzige Ausgabe des Hauptwerks: Porzio behandelt die Seele und den Intellekt des Menschen und macht sich dabei die materialistischen Ansichten seines Lehrers Pietro Pompanazzi zu eigen, indem er die Sterblichkeit der individuellen Seele vertritt (vgl. Ziegenfuß II, 304). Im 23. Kapitel setzt sich Porzio mit den Argumenten Averroes' in Bezug auf das dritte Buch von Aristoteles Abhandlung "De Anima" auseinander. Aufgrund seiner mangelnden Orthodoxie hinsichtlich der Frage der Unsterblichkeit wurde der Verfasser heftig angegriffen. - Porzio (1497-1554) lehrte Philosophie und Medizin in Pisa, später in Neapel (vgl. Poggendorff II, 506). "His philosophic theory was identical with that of Pomponazzi, whose 'De immortalitate animi' he defended and amplified in a treatise 'De mente humana'. There is told of him a story which illustrates the temper of the early humanistic revival in Italy. When he was beginning his first lecture at Pisa he opened the meteorological treatises of Aristotle. The audience, composed of students and townspeople, interrupted him with the cry 'Quid de anima' ('We would hear about the soul'), and Porzio was constrained to change the subject of his lecture. He professed the most open materialism, denied immortality in all forms and taught that the soul of man is homogeneous with the soul of animals and plants, material in origin and incapable of separate existence" (Enylopaedia Britannica, 11th ed., s.v.). - Schöner Druck, durc … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dedica del traduttore, Giambattista Gelli, all'auditore Francesco Torelli, alcune grandi iniziali xilografate figurate. Legatura coeva in piena peragamena con titolo calligrafato in senso longitudinale al dorso. Esemplare perfetto, candido e a larghi margini ottimamente impresso. Prima edizione italiana, fatta su quella latina dello stesso anno da Giambatista Gelli (con il quale l'autore aveva in quegli stessi anni inaugurato un proficuo rapporto di collaborazione). Il Porzio (o Porta, dal cognome latinizzato Portius [vel] Porcius), fu medico e filosofo, napoletano (1497-1554), allievo del Nifo e professore di medicina all'università di Pisa dal 1545 al 1552. Questo suo trattato, vertente intorno alla natura del libero arbitrio ma in un panorama di argomenti che lambisce alcune sensibilità "riformate", si svolge in un agone dove "a sfidarsi scendono tre scuole filosofiche: lo stoicismo, con il suo uomo capace di autodeterminarsi e di salvarsi da solo, associato esplicitamente da Porzio al pelagianesimo; il platonismo, per il quale, al contrario, l'uomo è capace del bene solo per dono divino, e nel quale è necessario riconoscere un implicito riferimento ai riformati; e infine la posizione mediana ed equilibrata, quella dell'aristotelismo, capace, in virtù del riconoscimento dell'ambiguità della natura umana, di concedere all'uomo tanta libertà quanta gliene basta per riconoscere i propri limiti".

Folio (309x199mm), bound in the antique vellum binding. 393, [1] leaf. A handsome and well preserved copy with some normal aging or age mellowing to the binding and some abrasion or offsetting at the first and second leaves. Inner margin skillfully restored at the initial leaf. FIRST EDITION, RARE. "Editio Princeps of Appian's histories of the various Roman wars from the earliest times to the accession of Vespasian (A.D. 70). The edition was begun by Robert Estienne before his departure from Paris and completed and printed by Charles Estienne. This volume is generally cited as the supreme example of the use of the Royal Greek types; it is, in fact the first classical text printed in all three sizes of the 'grecs du roi' (first used together the preceding year in the New Testament). 'One of the most exquisite books printed from these fonts...is Charles and Robert Estienne's Greek edition of Appian...All three sizes of type are used in it. The type in mass, and the proportion and imposition of the type-page, are very splendid, and there is another reason for looking at it. The superb decorations and initials by Tory...are wonderful, in their accord with the colour of the Greek text, in their printable qualities and in their grace of design.'" [D. B.

MANILIUS, Marcus
1551 Astronomicon Manilius Ancient Rome Astrology Occult Astronomy Zodiac 2in1 Marcus Manilius was a first century Roman poet known for his famous collection of astrological poetry ‘Astronomica.’ This book is thought to be the first extensive work on astronomy and astrology – it describes various celestial phenomena and goes into great detail on the zodiac. It also considers many of the celestial theories proposed by Xenophanes and Hesiod and their perceptions of creation. Other topics of discussion include formation of constellations, placement of sun and moon, emphasis on the Milky Way, exploration of comets and meteors as an omen for earthly disasters and plagues. This exceedingly rare 1551 edition was published in Lyon by Tournes and was edited by Antoine du Moulin an important French poet and translator. He was the first translator for Jean de Tournes publishing and his translation of Ancient Greek and Roman texts were used for centuries following the mid-1500s. This edition was published the same year that Moulin died. This book is bound with ‘De Memoria Reparanda’ by Italian physician Guglielmo Grataroli; a short essay on medical remedies, and the influence of behavior of health.
