        De Omni Rerum Fossilium Genere, Gemmis, Lapidibus, Metallis, et huiusmodi...

      Zürich, Jakob Gesner, 1565-1566. 8vo (160 x 105mm). 8 works in one (see collation below), with woodcut of a ring and 12 gemstones on title, 2 woodcut portraits of Kentmann, numerous woodcuts of minerals, fossils and gems. Contemporary half blind pressed pigskin, blind tooled green boards with vellum, blind tooled corners. One of the rarest and most precious works on fossils and minerals. Our copy is reasonably priced as it has the following faults: Small paper restoration to title without loss of printed text, leaves a6 and a8 of the first work 'Catalogus Rerum' by Kentman in very good facsimile, leaf 132 of Gesner's 'De rerum Fosilium' in very good facsimile and leaves 103 and 111 with skillfull paper restoration. A compendium of works by several authors, including Gesner himself, each part (except the first one) with its own title page, edited and published, with commentary by Gesner. I. Catalogus rerum fossilium Io. Kentmani... ff [8, comprising title to the whole work, table of contents, and 12 pages of Gesner's introduction to the volume] 95 [1, blank], with a woodcut illustrating Kentmann's mineral cabinet (here in facsimile). A catalogue describing the mineral collection of Johannes Kentmann. It is the first publication in its kind and describes some 1600 specimens. 'This catalog and its importance to Gesner in the latter's attempts to create a systematic classification of mineral substances is discussed by M.J.S. Ruckwick, The Meaning of Fossils, 1972, especially pp 12-13, with a reproduction of the explanatory chart to the cabinet and a woodcut of the cabinet itself. Adams noted that "Kentmann is stated to have been the first man in Europe to make a collection of minerals"' (Sinkankas). II. KENTMANN, Johann. Calculorum qui in corpore ac membris hominum innascuntur, genera XII. ff [2] 22, with 10 woodcuts, a treatise of stones formed in the human body. III. FABRICIUS, Georg. De metallicis rebus... ff [3] 31. A treatise on noble and base metals. IV. GOEBEL, Severin. De succino libri duo... ff [2] 30 [recte 31] [5, last blank]. A treatise on amber, which is followed by Gesner's commentary 'De bitumine et cognati ei, naptha' V. CORDUS, Valerius. De halosantho seu spermate ceti... ff [3] 37. 'Cordus wrote on 'efflorescences' of salt found on bodies of water which Dioscorides and Galen had prescribed as cures for skin afflictions. Gesner refutes the popular notion that such salts were the sperm of whales' (Sinkankas). VI. EPIPHANIUS. De XII gemmis quae erant in veste Aaronis... ff [4] 28. A treatise on the twelve gemstones in the breastplate of Aaron, High Priest of the Jews, with commentary by Gesner. VII. RUE, François de la. De gemmis aliquot... ff [2] 85 [recte 86]. A treatise on gems mentioned in the Book of Revelations. VIII. GESNER, Conrad. De rerum fossilium, lapidum et gemmarum... ff [7] 169, with 72 woodcuts (many with more than one on a page, and sometimes several figures) in text. 'Gessner's main contribution to his work on fossils and gems, illustrated by many woodcuts after his own drawings and water colours (many of which are still preserved in the university library at Basel). These are the first printed illustrations of fossils. The work contains also descriptions of technical applications; noteworthy among these is the earliest illustration of lead pencil (leaves 104 and 105). In his introduction, Gessner indicates that he considers this only as an outline for a much larger and comprehensive work on fossils which he hoped to compile and publish after the completion of his botanical encyclopedia on which he was then working. Neither of these planned works materialized because Gessner died shortly after the publication of this work' (Wellisch A 63). Provenance: Old name G. Rolfinck on title. Wellisch A6; Hoover 347; Sinkankas 2366; Sparrow, Milestones of Science p. 10.

First published in 1514 (or 1516), it was the first serious attempt to arrange the common law in a systematic manner and it was a model for such writers as Brooke and Rolle. According to Boersma, Fitzherbert accomplished "nothing less than to abridge all notes of significant cases at common law."

        De iis quae vehuntur in Aqua libri duo; Liber de Centro Gravitates Solidorum.Bologna: Benacius, 1565.

      Two works in one volume; The first critical printing of Archimedes' On Floating Bodies, edited by Commandino, bound with the first edition of Commandino's important treatise On the Center of Gravity of Solid Bodies. <br/><br/> "Commandino's only other original work, dealing with the center of gravity of solid bodies, was published in 1565 at Bologna, ... Commandino's interest in this topic was aroused by Archimedes' Floating Bodies, of which he had no Greek text, unlike the five other Archimedean works he had previously translated. Since his time a large part of the Greek text of Floating Bodies has been recovered, but he had only a printed Latin translation (Venice, 1543, 1565), which he commented on and corrected (Bologna, 1565). In particular the proof of proposition 2 in book II was incomplete, and Commandino filled it out. One step required knowing the location of the center of gravity of any segment of a parabolic conoid. No ancient treatment of such a problem was then known, and Commandino's was the first modern attempt to fill the existing gap." (DSB, III:364). <br/><br/> In 1543 Tartaglia published "the Moerbeke translations of [Archimdes'] On the Equilibrium of Planes and Book I of On Floating Bodies (leaving the erroneous impression that he had made these translations from a Greek manuscript, which he had not since he merely repeated the texts of the Madrid manuscript with virtually all their errors). Incidentally, Curtius Trioianus published from the legacy of Tartaglia both books of On Floating Bodies in Moerbeke's translation (Venice, 1565). The key event, however, in the further spread of Archimedes was the aforementioned editio princeps of the Greek text with the accompanying Latin translation of James of Cremona at Basel in 1544 [Opera, quae quidem extant, omnia]. Since the Greek text rested ultimately on manuscript A, On Floating Bodies was not included. A further Latin translation of the Archimedean texts was published by the perceptive mathematician Federigo Commandino in Bologna in 1558, which the translator supplemented with a skillful mathematical emendation of Moerbeke's translation of On Floating Bodies (Bologna,1565) but without any knowledge of the long lost Greek text. (DSB, I:229). <br/><br/> Honeyman 131 & 739; Bibliotheca Mechanica 78; Stanitz 98 (the last three references are to Commandino's work only).. 4to: 202 x 141 mm. ff. [iv], 43; [iv], 47.

      Basel, Per Ambrosium et Aurelium, Frobenios Fratres, (1565, March, -on colophon). Folio. One cont. full vellum w. six raised bands on back. The boards have perhaps been covered with vellum a bit later. A few wormholes to upper and lower part of back. Inner hinges a bit weak, but binding sound. Some leaves brownspotted, but overall internally nice. Cont. inscription in ink on top of t-p. ("Domus Casa Professore Romana Socieded Jesu"). Woodcut printer's device on t-p. Woodcut initials, three of which are large (4,9 x 4,9 cm). 348, 279, 190, (2), (66, -Index) pp.. The rare first Langi/ Langum-edition and third Latin edition of the Opera of Justin. The first edition of the Opera in the original Greek appeared in 1551 (Paris, Stephanus). The first Latin edition appeared in 1554 (Basel Dupuys), the second (the Galen-edition) in 1555 (Basel, Hier. Froben & Nic. Episcopius) and the third (the Langi-edition) in 1565. This is probably the best of the Latin editions, and the Latin version of the Opera by Jo. Langi was also used for the standard Greek-Latin parallel editions of 1593 and 1615. Justin the Martyr (100 - 165 AD) was a Christian philosopher, who was brought up a pagan. He is primarily known for his dailogues and his apologies, all of which are present here. The apologies constitute the earliest Christian ones of some length. He died a martyr in Rome after having been condemned a Christian by Q. Junius Rusticus. As a philosopher he dealt with Stocism, Aristotelianism and Pythagoreanism before he meant to have found the truth in Platonism. Philosophically he is most interesting in his attempt to unite Christianity with philosophy (i.e. Platonism), as Boethius did a few centuries later, and Justin actually anticipates the philosophy of history of Origin (ca. 185 - ca. 255) and Eusebius (ca. 260 - 340). He is very interesting when viewed as a thinker, who represents the union of philosophy and thought with the new religious attraction in the Eastern part of the Empire under Antonius Pius, i.e. Christianity.Graesse III:515, Adams J:497, not in Brunet

First Italian edition (and in full), being the second folio-edition as well as the second edition in the vernacular, of Magnus' great work "Historia de gentibus septentrionalibus", which constitutes one of the most important sources on the Northern customs and daily life of the time. The present first Italian edition ispublished 10 years after the first edition, which is in Latin, Rome 1555. A French translation appeared, in 8vo, in 1560-61). In reality, this famous work is a large commentary and notes to Olaus Magnus' own map, the famous "Carta Marina", which he published in Venice in 1539, of which only two copies are known. The Carta Marina ("Map of the Sea" or "Sea Map"), is the earliest map of the Nordic countries that gives details and place names. Only two earlier maps of Scandinavia are known, those of Jacob Ziegler and Claudius Clavus. The "Carta Marina" is reproduced here in smaller size.The woodcut illustrations and views - here printed with the same woodblocks as the Rome edition of 1555 - are of the greatest importance to the cultural history of the Nordic countries, as they illustrate the religions, folklore, occupations, as well as the geographies, fauna etc. of the Scandinavian people. They have since been reproduced a number of times. The artist is not known, but they are probably carved after sketches by Olaus Magnus himself. The map is here reproduced for the first time in copper-engraving, the earlier version was in woodcut.Swedish Books 1280-1967, No. 18. - Collijn "Sveriges Bibliografi intill År 1600", II: p. 221
