Amazing condition near fine considering age, all signatures very nice. Original folds from sending out the Invitation a few spots and wear slight tears to places on edge see hi-res pics. Sold as is as a true artifact waf a true piece of History. 1555 INVITATION TO THE DIET OF AUGSBURG SIGNED BY CHARLES V and also very rare SIGNATURE OF Paul Pfintzing CHARLES V: Holy Roman Emperor King of the Romans King of Italy Also, this Invitation mentions the stark conditions of the war and a desire for peace. The Peace of Augsburg would bring the war to an end. He mentions his brother, "King of Rome"-the title given to the heir apparent in the Holy Roman Empire, who at this time was Ferdinand I. Here is a overall translation showing the gist of the Invitation: Due to the situation with wars, their cost, and other urgent business plus the alleged poor health of Charles V, he is inviting (i.e., ordering) the recipient to attend the Diet of Augsburg although he himself will not be there. In his place, his "friendly, dear" brother, the Roman King will run the meeting of the Diet to take place in Augsburg. There have been many postponements of this Diet--there will be more; the Diet took place more than a year later, in 1555. This perfectly matches the circumstances surrounding the negotiations that led to this Diet. Historians, citing Charles' correspondence, have said that he pretended to be sick and allowed his brother to run the Diet, because he himself could not accept the fact that Christendom would remain split between Catholics and Protestants. The title "Roman King" had long been u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Poche fioriture, ottimo stato di conservazione. Interessante insieme di due opere stilate da Giovanni Battista da Monte (Montano), medico e letterato veronese. Quest'ultimo fu sostenitore dell'empirismo ippocratico e rivoluzionò l'insegnamento della medicina facendo partire i suoi allievi non dai testi bensì dal malato stesso. Cfr. Pazzini: "...Da Monte esercitò medicina a Brescia, viaggiò per l'Italia fermandosi a Napoli, Roma, Venezia e Ferrara dove insegnò nel 1539. Passò quindi a Padova... Fu tanto lodato dai suoi contemporanei da essere detto dono concesso dal Cielo e lume del suo secolo. Egli fu tra i primi ad istituire un insegnamento clinico al letto del malato. ".

SLEIDAN (Iean).
Strasbourg, sans nom d'imprimeur, 1555. 2 volumes in-8. 8ff. 355ff. chiffrés. (1f.blanc) + 1f. ff.358-713. 18ff. (1f.blanc). Veau marbré, dos lisses ornés (Reliure du 18e siècle restaurée). L'une des quatre premières éditions imprimées à Strasbourg, de cet ouvrage important sur le règne de Charles-Quint, initialement paru la même année dans la même ville. "Contemporain de la paix d'Augsbourg, cet ouvrage divisé en vingt-cinq livres peut être considéré comme la première véritable histoire de la Réforme. Si ses limites chronologiques (1517-1555) correspondent à deux dates emblématiques de ce phénomènes religieux, il ne consiste pas seulement en une histoire 'ecclésiastique'. Indirectement, les Commentarii de Sleidan offrent aussi, comme leur titre l'indique, un large tableau du règne impérial de Charles-Quint ( ). Dès sa sortie de presse, ce livre connut un succès impressionnant: quatre éditions sont réalisées à Strasbourg au cours de la même année en 1555 et des traductions française, allemande, italienne, néerlandaise, anglaise et même suédoise voient rapidement le jour" (Grell).

Bible. O.T. Psalms. Greek. 1555. Dolscius.
Basileae: per Ioannem Oporinum, [colophon: 1555]. 8vo (15.9 cm, 6.25"). [16], 341, [7] pp. Sole edition of these Greek paraphrased psalms, done by Paul Dolscius while he was serving as a rector in Halle. Melanchthon was a great supporter of Dolscius (1526–89), whose translation work was so proficient that at one point his authorial byline on the Greek translation of the Augsburg Confession was assumed to be merely a pseudonym for the great reformer himself.    The text here is simply printed with the Latin preface in roman and the main text in Greek using single columns; a 5-line decorative initial and a 7-line inhabited one (showing two kings in profile) complete the work. This is now an uncommon edition, with searches of Worldcat, COPAC, USTC, and NUC Pre-1956 revealing only three U.S. institutions reporting ownership.    Provenance: An inked ownership stamp of notable 19th-century English bibliomaniac Richard Heber (1774–1833), reading "Bibliotheca Heberiana," appears on the front free endpaper; Thomas Frognall Dibdin added this stamp to select rare books in Heber's collection following the collector's death. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         Bibliotheca Palatina F5048/F5049; VD16 B3122; USTC 626665.

Oribasius
Apud Bernardinum Turrisanum. Oribasius ORIBASII SARDIANI COLLECTORUM MEDICINALIUM 1555 Vellum Binding Extremely rare Second edition of this compilation of writings by Oribasius, a Byzantine physician active in the fourth century A.D. According to Garrison, Oribasius "is chiefly remarkable as a torch-bearer of knowledge rather than as an original writer, but his compilations are highly valued by scholars in that he always give his authorities and, as far as is known, quotes them exactly" (History of Medicine, 122). First edition, Venice, 1554. Title: Oribasii Sardiani Collectorum medicinalium, libri XVII, qui ex magno septuaginta librorum volumine ad nostram aetatem soli pervenerunt Author: Oribasius - Oribasius or Oreibasius was a Greek medical writer and the personal physician of the Roman emperor Julian the Apostate. He studied at Alexandria under physician Zeno of Cyprus before joining Julian's retinue. He was involved in Julian's coronation in 361, and remained with the emperor until Julian's death in 363. In the wake of this event, Oribasius was banished to foreign courts for a time, but was later recalled by the emperor Valens. Oribasius's major works, written at the behest of Julian, are two collections of excerpts from the writings of earlier medical scholars, a collection of excerpts from Galen and the Collectiones, a massive compilation of excerpts from other medical writers of the ancient world. The first of these works is entirely lost, and only 25 of the 70 (or 72) books of the Collectiones survive. The first five surviving books deal with food and drink.

Belon, Pierre
Paris: Guillaume Cavellat, 1555. First edition. pp. (28), 381, (1, colophon); general title and six divisional titles each with a large woodcut device, 161 woodcuts in the text, including a portrait of the author, 2 skeletons, and 158 large cuts of birds. Eighteenth-century brown one-quarter calf leather over sprinkled paper-covered boards (the boards are likely the original due to a faint imprint of another cover beneath the sprinkled paper and due to fact that the book is sewn on alum-tawed thongs laced into the boards), tall 4to (13 x 9 inches). Belon's L'Histoire is "one of the earliest books dealing entirely with birds" (Ayer, Zimmer, p. 52). The present volume was intended as a compendium of ornithology and contains (the author's) important comparison of human and avian skeletons, which became the foundation of the science of comparative anatomy (see comments in Ronsil, no. 189). This work is a handsome example of the Cavellat issue of this important Renaissance work of science--one of earliest printed ornithological books (See Nissen IVB 86; Norman 180; Mortimer French 50). Small bookplate on the front free endpaper, old name in ink crossed in the upper outer corner of the title page, no other ownership marks. Two pages have small marginal tears to paper with no effect to the text, the front attached endpaper has two old creases from the board that extend into the first section of the text, all of the text-pages and woodcuts are very bright and clean; a tight and clean copy in near fine condition.

Sold as is as a true artifact waf a true piece of History. 1555 INVITATION TO THE DIET OF AUGSBURG SIGNED BY CHARLES V and also very rare SIGNATURE OF Paul Pfintzing CHARLES V: Holy Roman Emperor King of the Romans King of Italy Also, this Invitation mentions the stark conditions of the war and a desire for peace. The Peace of Augsburg would bring the war to an end. He mentions his brother, "King of Rome"-the title given to the heir apparent in the Holy Roman Empire, who at this time was Ferdinand I. Here is a overall translation showing the gist of the Invitation: Due to the situation with wars, their cost, and other urgent business plus the alleged poor health of Charles V, he is inviting (i.e., ordering) the recipient to attend the Diet of Augsburg although he himself will not be there. In his place, his "friendly, dear" brother, the Roman King will run the meeting of the Diet to take place in Augsburg. There have been many postponements of this Diet--there will be more; the Diet took place more than a year later, in 1555. This perfectly matches the circumstances surrounding the negotiations that led to this Diet. Historians, citing Charles' correspondence, have said that he pretended to be sick and allowed his brother to run the Diet, because he himself could not accept the fact that Christendom would remain split between Catholics and Protestants. The title "Roman King" had long been u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Xenophon
Basel, N. Brylinger, 1555. 8 Bll., 678 S., 1 Bl. Fol., etw. späteres Ldr., Rückensch. (VD 16, X 5. - Adams X 9. - Schweiger S. 335.) - Dritte Basler Ausgabe. Bedeutende Humanistenarbeit, der Text folgt Castalios Ausgabe, die lateinische Übersetzung von F. Philadelphus ist in Paralleldruck beigegeben. - Letzte Bll. mit kl. Wasserrand, Titel leicht angeschmutzt und mit altem Besitzeintrag, wenige alte Marginalien. Einband mit Gebrauchsspuren und Schäden, diese fachgerecht restauriert. Xenophons Werke, insbesondere die sokratischen Schriften und die Anabasis, waren unter anderem wegen ihrer nüchtern-klaren Sprache beliebt (er wurde unter anderem von Marcus Tullius Cicero gelesen und gelobt); er bleibt auch bis heute ein wichtiges Stilvorbild für das attische Griechisch. Da Xenophon teilweise Augenzeuge der berichteten Ereignisse war, ist er außerdem eine wichtige Quelle für die griechische Geschichte des 4. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. und hat in neuerer Zeit wieder das Interesse der Forschung erregt. Auch für die Philosophiegeschichte ist er von Bedeutung als kritische Ergänzung zur Darstellung des Sokrates in den Werken Platons. Seine Werke "Hipparchikos" und "De Re Equestri" werden heute vielfach als Grundlage der Hippologie gesehen. Die dort zu findenden Hinweise haben auch heute noch unverändert Gültigkeit. Xenophon machte sich auch Gedanken zur Ökonomie, die er vor allem in zwei Büchern festhielt: Oeconomicus (Gespräch über die Haushaltsführung) und De Vectigalibus (Mittel und Wege, dem Staat Geld zu verschaffen). In diesen beschäftigt er sich mit den Prinzipien guter Haushaltsf … [Click Below for Full Description]

"The History of Rome, which Livy began at thirty and continued for forty years was composed in 142 books ... [but] of this immense work only thirty-five books are extant ... Livy stood at the peak of annalistic historiography ... His genius lay in his power of vivid historical reconstruction, visualizing scenes and people, and conveying his impression by description and interpretation ... His success was immediate and lasting. His work was used by historians and epic poets ... In the Middle Ages Dante praised 'Livio che non erra.' The Renaissance saw him in high favor, and printing made him a popular author" (OCD). His history provided the groundwork of almost everything subsequently written on the subject and constituted a textbook … [Click Below for Full Description]
