Editio princeps de l'Histoire romaine d'Appien publiée par Charles et Robert Estienne avec les trois corps des Grecs du Roi gravés par Claude Garamont."When François I appointed robert Estienne his new Printer in Greek, in 1542, he also commissioned Claude Garamont to cut a new Greek font intented specifically to be use to print Greek books from unpublished Greek manuscripts in the Royal Library at Fontainebleau. 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.

Porzio (Portius), Simone
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".

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.

The translation was largely the work of Jerome, who in 382 had been commissioned by Pope Damasus I to revise the Vetus Latina ("Old Latin") Gospels then in use by the Roman Church. Jerome, on his own initiative, extended this work of revision and translation to include most of the Books of the Bible, and once published, the new version was widely adopted and eventually eclipsed the Vetus Latina; so that by the 13th century, it took over from the former version the appellation of "versio vulgata"  (the "version commonly used") or vulgata for short, and in Greek as βουλγάτα ("Voulgata").

ATTRIBUTES: •Beautiful Small full dark brown/black morocco leather cover design, •Faint/Pretty floral blind stamped boards, •Title page with Printer's Crest, About 70 Wonderful illustrations, •And a Great Read! BACKGROUND: •The Vulgate is a late-4th-century Latin translation of the Bible that became the Catholic Church's officially promulgated Latin version of the Bible during the 16th century. The translation was largely the work of Jerome, who in 382 had been commissioned by Pope Damasus I to revise the Vetus Latina ("Old Latin") Gospels then in use by the Roman Church. Jerome, on his own initiative, extended this work of revision and translation to include most of the Books of the Bible, and once published, the new version was widely adopted and eventually eclipsed the Vetus Latina; so that by the 13th century, it took over from the former version the appellation of "versio vulgata"  (the "version commonly used") or vulgata for short, and in Greek as βουλγάτα ("Voulgata"). CONDITION: •Condition is Fair/Good. Wear to edges/boards/binding, I repaired a few small holes to boards, lacks ties, missing a little leather near ends of spine/some color added over, cracking to spine, boards pop up a bit, early ink inscriptions to title page and one to first chapter heading page/same with old margin paper repair, some damp staining throughout, more visual towards the end, most pages are good, insect hole to bot … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Legatura del XX secolo in cartonato, piatti ricoperti da carta marmorizzata, titolo impresso in oro su tassello in pergamena al dorso. Al contropiatto anteriore ex-libris inciso di Francisco Bracchini. Nota manoscritti alla p. 50, qualche sottolineatura in inchiostro bruno. Rara prima edizione, stampata senza dati editoriali ma da attribuirsi al tipografo Lorenzo Torrentino, del volgarizzamento, ad opera di Giovann Battista Gelli, di questo opuscolo redatto intorno al 1542 dal medico e filosofo napoletano Simone Porzio, ma apparso per la prima volta solo nel 1551, presso i torchi del Torrentino, con il titolo De puella germanica, quae fere biennium vixerat sine cibo, potuque. L'operetta narra del fatto prodigioso, avvenuto intorno al 1542 vicino a Spira, di una ragazza tedesca anoressica di nome Margarete Weiss, che rimase senza mangiare né bere per oltre due anni. Porzio cerca di spiegare da un punto di vista medico come questo sia stato possibile, concludendo che la natura flemmatica e la frigidità della ragazza, unitamente agli umori crudi, hanno reso la cosa possibile. La ragazza era stata mostrata in pubblico durante la Dieta di Speyer del 1542 e poi affidata al medico Gerhard Bucholtz, il quale poche settimane dopo stilò un rapporto che attestò il carattere non finto dell'inedia (cfr. D. Castelli, Simone Porzio e il "De puella Germanica": l' "inedia' mirabile di una fanciu … [Click Below for Full Description]

The ancestor of the Roman historian Cassius Dio (155-235 BC), Dio Chrysostomus was a Greek historian and man of letters born in Prusa (now Bursa), Bithynia (now a part of Turkey), in 40 BCE within in a powerful and rich family. He died in ca. 115. His nickname was Chysostomus, literally golden-mouthed , by virtue of his eloquence. He became a Roman citizen earning the surname of Cocceianus after his connection with Marcus Cocceius Nerva, the famous Emperor, whose family offered him patronage. The orator Philistratus (170-247 BC) is our main source on Dio s life and career.

Contemporary limp vellum with later giltstamped orange spine label and ms. spine title. Very rare Italian edition of the "Kitab al-Jawami", an Arabic work on the interpretation of dreams by an "Achmet, son of Seirim" - almost certainly identical with the 8th century Muslim mystic Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn Sirin. The work survived in a Greek translation ("Biblion oneirokritikon") prepared in the 12th century. "The author Ahmed served as interpreter of dreams to Caliph Al-Mamun around 820 [...] The mediaeval conflation of medicine with astrology originated with the Arabs. Through the Salernitanian school, which had many Arabic works translated, the notion reached Europe in the 11th century, where it remained predominant as late as the 17th and 18th century [...] In 1577 J. Loewenklau published a Latin translation of the Oneirokritiká of Ahmed, whom he calls Apomasar" (cf.

excudebat Iaspar Gennepaeus, 1551. Cm. 31, pp. (80) 370. Bel frontespizio figurato, capolettera e testatine istoriate. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena flosciacon titoli ms. al dorso. Esemplare genuino e ben conservato e di rimarchevole bellezza tipografica. Alessandro Alessandri (1461?-1523?), giureconsulto napoletano, si rese celebre grazie a quest'opera avulsa da una dottrina strettamente giuridica. Fu allievo di F. Filelfo e del Calderino ed esercitò precocemente la professione d'avvocato per poi rinunciarvi disgustato, riportano le biografie, più dall'iniquità dei giudizi che dalla difficoltà della scienza della legge. Questa è infatti un'opera d'erudizione e di filologia strutturata sui modelli delle opere di Aulo Gellio e Giovanni di Salisbury. Vanno menzionati infine i dotti commentari che ne scaturirono a cura del Tiraqueau e di Dionigi Gotofredo stampati nella seconda metà del Cinquecento.

King Henry II
1551. He encourages them to stop “all infighting and division from which will follow the perpetual tranquility of your republic to the shame and confusion of those would tyrannize and oppress” A very rare and important letter of the French King The Eighth Italian War of 1551–1559, sometimes known as the Habsburg–Valois War, began when King Henry II of France declared war against Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who was King of Austria and Spain, with the intent of recapturing Charles’ holdings in Italy and ensuring French, rather than Habsburg, domination of European affairs. Persecution of Protestants at home did not prevent Henry II from becoming allied with German Protestant princes, which he did at the Treaty of Chambord in 1552. Simultaneously, the continuation of his father's Franco-Ottoman alliance allowed Henry II to push for French conquests eastward towards the Rhine while a Franco-Ottoman fleet defended southern France. An early offensive into Lorraine was successful. Henry captured the three episcopal cities of Metz, Toul, and Verdun, and secured them by defeating the Habsburg army at the Battle of Renty in 1554. While Henry II was occupied with the campaign in Flanders, the war against the Hab­sburgs was renewed in Italy. When the city of Siena in Tuscany rebelled against Habsburg occupation and established an independent republic, Henry provided financial and military support to the new regime, sending troops to buttress the city's defenses against an imperial coun­teroffensive. Through his intervention in Tuscany, Henry II gained a foothold in c … [Click Below for Full Description]

JUVENALIS, (Decimus Junius)
1551 Juvenal & Persius SATIRES Froben HUGE FOLIOS Curio Stoic Philosophy ROME “Many commit the same crime with a very different result. One bears a cross for his crime; another a crown.” Juvenal, The Satires A rare 1551 printing of ‘The Satires’ of Juvenal and Persius printed by Froben. This collection of satirical poetry was written in the late 1st and 2nd centuries. These satires discuss society, social norms, irony, each of these providing insight to the morals and values of Roman life at the time. Juvenal outlines many of the concerns he has with Roman citizens including unfaithfulness and greed; issues he recognized as downfalls to society. This edition features the commentary of numerous 16th-century scholars including Britannico, Baden, and Plautius. However, the most notable name to contribute to this edition was Curio. According to Dibdin, “This edition, printed by one of Froben's sons, is noticed by Ruperti as containing the Scholia of Curio. Henninius, in his edition of 1685, more particularly discusses the Scholia of Curio, and the merits of Britannicus. This edition of 1551 is scarce.” Item number: #2524 Price: $2500 JUVENALIS, (Decimus Junius) Ivnii Ivvenalis, et A.
