Philoponus, Joannes Grammaticus.
Lugduni: [colophon: Nicolaus Edoardus Campanus], 1557. Folio (33.5 cm, 13.15"). 295, [3 (blank)] pp. (lacking final blank f. only). Uncommon first edition of this translation: Neoplatonic philosophy, translated by Joannes Mahotius into Latin from the original Greek. Philoponus (ca. 490–570 a.d.), also known as John of Alexandria or John the Grammarian, was an opponent of Aristotelian physics; the present item defends the tenets of Christian creationism against the arguments of Proclus, an Athenian Neoplatonist and Philoponus's mentor.         Adams P1062; Brunet, III, 544. Contemporary vellum, darkened and worn, spine with later hand-inked paper labels; front joint starting from top and bottom, with vellum lost over lower outer corners, across spine bands, and over spine extremities. Front pastedown with (upside down!) bookplate of a 19th-century collector; front pastedown and free endpaper with early inked numerals and notations. Title-page stained and showing traces of old (arrested) mildew, with printer's device partially hand-colored in pale yellow; verso of title-page with faint old library-style shelf number; in text, a few corners dog-eared. Waterstaining to upper and outer portions of first 18 ff. and in this section paper brittle with sewing going and some leaves separating. Final leaf (only) lacking (a blank). A compromised copy and priced accordingly, but, as noted, uncommon — and a bit less distressed than the enumeration of faults may suggest.

ALVARES, Francisco
Antwerp Juan Steelsius 1557. Rare first Spanish-language edition of one of the earliest comprehensive reports on Ethiopia available to Europeans: "incomparably more detailed than any earlier account of Ethiopia that has survived, it is also a very important source for Ethiopian history, for it was written just before the country was devastated by the Muslim Somali and pagan Galla invasions of the second quarter of the 16th century" (Hakluyt Society I.12). The work appears on all four 16th-century book lists employed in the influential exhibit, Europe Informed, which identified in a historically controlled way the most widely disseminated early travel accounts informing 16th-century Europeans about Asia and Africa. The account is the fruit of an embassy made by the author in connection with the search for eastern Christians. The journey had roots in the medieval legend of Prester John, a mythical King whose vast domains contained wondrous panaceas and who was, to boot, a Christian. The legend proved a well-known stimulus to European exploration, and just as importantly provided Catholic Europe with an influential eschatological fantasy: reunited with their long-lost eastern brethren, they would finally subdue Islam or, in a later generation, Protestants, etc. Although the work is much concerned with the activity and structure of the Eastern Church, the fact that Alvares recognizes Ethiopians as equals paradoxically makes him more observant, and the work contains much information about agriculture, natural history (wildlife and the terrible locusts), the curious architectural … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was born at Moderna and held professorships at Venice, Padua, and Bologna. "... he was unquestionably one of the first classical antiquaries of his time, and a man of great judgement as well as learning, very correct and deep in researches, and of most unwearied diligence." [Chalmers.] "In 1555, while still at Venice, he published his folio edition of Livy and his Fasti Consulares, with an ample commentary on the latter in the following year. The last two works were the first in which accurate criticism was applied to the chronology of Roman history." [Sandys] This volume collects Sigonio's scholarly notes on Livy, Cicero, Hemogenes, etc., along with one of his attacks on Francesco Robortelli with whom he had a long running feud. Renouard 172.
