Nach diesem Maßstab wollte er Fehlentwicklungen der Christentumsgeschichte und in der Kirche seiner Zeit überwinden.

SUSANNA Marquardo
1558. Woodcut printer's device on title-page, woodcut of law students (60 x 100mm) on f. 1. 4to (205 x 140mm.) ff.[16], 148, [12]. Contemporary limp vellum, yapp edges, painted spine and later paper label, lacking ties First edition and a fine copy belonging to a 16th-century Venetian advocate, Benedetto Bariselli, involved in defending a Marrano Jew of Portuguese origin before the Inquisition. This is a very important work on the status of Jews in the papal states in Italy in the mid-sixteenth century, during the papacy of Paul IV, to whom according to a contemporary diarist, Jacopo Valvasone, it was most pleasing (?gratissimo?), and whose ideas therefore it may well be judged to reflect. It was Paul IV (Gian Pietro Carafa, born June 1476, Pope 23 May 1555- 18 August 1559) who with his bull Cum nimis absurdum dated 14 July 1555 changed radically the status of Jews, creating a ghetto in Rome and placing many restrictions on what they might or might not do in every aspect of life. The work, which is strongly legalistic in tone, and citing many of the medieval doctors in the usual legal manner, is divided into three parts. The first has fourteen chapters, the last of which discusses the Indians of the ?recently discovered islands? and the legality of the Spaniards making war on them; as simple ?infideles? this is not permitted, but as they are men given to various detestable crimes like the slaughter of innocents and the worship of idols, it is. In part two, which has nine chapters, the position of Jews under the law is considered as well as other questions of illegitimacy, p … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was fascinated by Plutarch's 'Lives', so much so that he created his own work which rivaled the ancient masterpiece. Giovio's 'Historiarum sui Temporis' is a collection of biographical sketches of lives of famous men which accounts for recognizable Italian men as well as those involved in the Italian Wars. These works dealt mainly with providing descriptions of royal families such as the House of Visconti and House of Sforza. This 1558 edition of 'Visconti & Sforza' was translated into Italian by Lodovico Domenichi and published by Ferrari in Venice. [Attributes: First Edition]

Sebastian Münster
Basel: Petri. Condition: Fair. Probably the edition of 1558, text in German, judging from pagination, binding style, etc, but this is only a fair copy of the book, lacking title page, portrait and first preface page; begins with a-4, and ends at p. 1226, so probably lacking 5 leaves at the end. Folio, bound in embossed decorative pigskin over wooden boards, heavily worn but still bound sturdily, has the suite of 14 double-page maps of parts the world, including the Kandel world map and map of the Americas, and by our count, 35 double-page city views and over a dozen single page woodcut plates, including two larger folding views of Worms and Heidelberg and a double page view of sea-monsters and equally dangerous animals on land (all three of the aforementioned views are worn: Worms has a piece missing out of its left side, Heidelberg is complete but shows old patching to its verso, and the fold in the sea monsters plate shows wear and separation). Pages have rounded corners, some minor edgewear and dampstaining, double page plate of Rome with some light tan stains, a few other pages with stains; the suite of 14 maps of the world complete and in generally good to very good condition, Kandel's world map having a small chip out of the right side, resulting in some image loss and most of the maps having light dampstaining and edgewear; top outer corners of pages somewhat rounded. The concentration of this book is on France and Germany, naturally. Muenster's Cosmography was first published in 1544, but it was not until 1550 that editions contained the city views and the new map b … [Click Below for Full Description]

Vignetta silogr. al frontesp., che presenta una nota di possesso antica alla sguardia iniz.. Cartone marmorizzato del XVIII sec., titolo manoscritto al dorso, tracce di etichetta. Prima edizione italiana in seconda tiratura ed unica cinquecentesca del Timeo, pubblicata inalterata pochi mesi dopo la prima, con la sola variante nella vignetta silografica al frontespizio, che riporta due satiri che sorreggono un candeliere con fuoco acceso e motto "lux fulget in tenebris " , invece di un anello con diamante intrecciato con un ramo di palma e uno di olivo con nastro e motto " Nil me durius."( riportata alla bianca finale); Considerato la continuazione della "Repubblica", come se dopo aver parlato dello Stato ideale, Platone volesse descrivere il mondo fisico in cui lo Stato deve operare, un mondo sensibile in continua mutazione non intelligibile con la ragione; in esso si parla in modo particolare del rapporto idee-cose e Platone si occupa del mondo fisico a tal punto che non è sbagliato definire il "Timeo" libro fisico (da "fusis", natura). Infatti Platone non si era ancora praticamente occupato del mondo sensibile se non per affermare che è una pallida copia del mondo delle idee e per evidenziare la sua inferiorità rispetto al mondo intellegibile. Dato che era un argomento meno importante e che il "filosofo" si muove tra le idee , Platone dedicò solo un' opera al mondo sensibile, che ci viene presentato come "il mondo in cui si muove l'uomo" … [Click Below for Full Description]

Galeno nacque a Pergamo nel 138 d.C. da una famiglia di architetti, i suoi interessi furono molteplici: divenuto therapeutes nel tempio di Asclepio, ad Alessandria approfondì gli studi di medicina dove apprese la dissezione. A Roma divenne rapidamente famoso ed ebbe fra i suoi pazienti anche l'imperatore Marco Aurelio, di cui divenne medico personale. Rimasto sempre a Roma vi morì probabilmente nel 200 d.C. secondo una nota della Suida: Di lui rimangono 108 opere di filosofia e medicina che sono giunte dall'antichità sia nella versione greca che in traduzioni latine di opere conservatesi in lingua araba, tramandando la medicina ippocratica. Le sua concezione dell'uomo ad opera di un singolo creatore lo rese accettabile anche da cristiani, ebrei e musulmani: il principio fondamentale della vita lo pneuma, venne interpretato come l'anima, la medicina galeni … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAXIMUS, Valerius
I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 1558 Valerius Maximus Dictorum et Factorum Tiberius Greek ROME Philosophy Badius A rare 16th-century printing of Valerius's "Dictorum et Factorum" or Historical Anecdotes. This work is a collection of short stories, sayings, and phrases, memorial to Tiberius Caesar, who was reigning during Valerius' lifetime. These anecdotes depict ancient Greek life and philosophy as well as famous kings and Caesars. Many modern historians claim that Valerius's work was taken from Cicero, Livy, and Sallust, as well as other ancient historians and philosophers, rather than creating original works. However, many of the topics he writes about were controversial and unusual for the time - he wrote on homosexuality within the Roman army and the aristocracy of ancient Greece. While homosexually itself was written on, it was only considered tolerable in a 'master-slave' relationship; not within a public and high status sense. Other topics include omens, revenge, superstitious cults, women lawyers, modesty, crimes, and conflicting political views. Notable names mentioned in this famous work include Scipio Africanus, Gaius and Tiberius Gracchus, and Alexander the Great! This 1558 Venetian edition features the commentary and notes of Ascensius Badius. [Attributes: First Edition]

PAUSANIAS
Pausanias was a 2nd-century Greek traveler and geographer who's famous 'Description of Greece' is one of the earliest reports on ancient Greece from a first-hand view. Each portion of the work is dedicated to a different region of Greece focusing on more than just topography. Pausanias sought to merge many of the Greek and Roman traditions he was pulled between in his writing through sketches of culture and customs as well as linking mythological and philosophical aspects of both cultures. This book has commentary on Greek landscapes, wild animals such as deer and boar, and Pausanias gives personal details of the Roman pine trees - a tree that has been iconic and symbolic for centuries to Rome. According to Andrew Stewart, on Pausanias's writing, he was "A careful, pedestrian writer...interested not only in the grandiose or the exquisite but in unusual sights and obscure ritual. He is occasionally careless or makes unwarranted inferences, and his guides or even his own notes sometimes mislead him, yet his honesty is unquestionable, and his value without par" (Stewart) This 1558 printing was the first two be printed in two volumes and only the second to see publication. Only two issues of this work were published during the 16th-century. An incredibly rare work! [Attributes: First Edition]

This work, in the first edition printed in Venice in 1540, is considered the first treaty ever on metallurgy, and it is the main minerals that their use, arts dell'oreficieria, glassware, sculpture, mint and mineral extraction themselves. But given the occupation of Messer Biringuccio, this treaty is primarily a book about gunpowder and its use in war, on the preparation of explosives underground "with fire ruinare do impregnable fortresses, not otherwise be able to conduct artillery pieces faces" , and the construction of cannons and iron balls. This work is distinguished both for the sake of simplicity and for the wealth of information boards, also designed by Biringuccio, and the huge success led her soon to be translated into French, German, English and Latin.

PICCOLOMINI Alessandro
Varisco Paganini. in-4 piccolo, ff. (10), 63, (1), legatura coeva in pergamena floscia (macchie e piccoli difetti). Impresa dello stampatore al titolo, varie lettere iniziali istoriate e ornate, 38 diagrammi, principalmente astronomici, a mezza pagina n.t. in litografia. Prima rara edizione di questo trattato cosmologico ed astronomico di Alessandro Piccolomini (Siena 1508-1578), della stessa famiglia di Papa Pio II, uomo di varia e vasta cultura: scrittore eclettico, scienziato e letterato autore, tra l'altro, del celeberrimo trattato ''De la sfera del mondo''. Fu tra i fondatori degli ''Intronati'' col nome di Stordito, insegnò filosofia morale a Padova e poi a Roma; nel 1574 ebbe il titolo di arcivescovo di Patrasso. Precede il testo la dedica a stampa a Cosimo de Medici. L'opera fu concepita come una sorta di completamento ''Della Grandezza della Terra e dell'Acqua'', dello stesso autore, pubblicata nel 1558, relativa a geografia e cartografia. Piccolomini è anche noto per aver pubblicato nel 1540 il primo atlante delle stelle. Di questa edizione sono note due differenti tirature: una con indicazione tipografica dello Ziletti e relativa impresa, come il presente esemplare, l'altra con riferimento a Varisco e sua impresa editoriale, entrambe deo 1558. Buon esemplare. assai genuino.
