        Clementis Alexandrini, viri longe doctissimi, qui Panteni quidem martyris fuit discipulus, praeceptor verò Origenis, omnia, quae quidem extant opera, à paucis iam annis inventa, [et] nunc denuò accuratiùs excusa Gentiano Herueto Aureliano interprete ... [with another, as below].

      Basileae: Per Thomam Guarinum Folio (33.5 cm; 13.125"). 364 pp., [8] ff.. 1566 [also bound in] Vermigli, Pietro Martire. In selectissimam D. Pauli priorem ad Corinthios Epistolam. Tiguri: apud C. Froschouerum, 1567. Folio (33.5 cm; 13.125"). [6], 242, [17] ff. (lacks final blank). Wonderful large folio volume containing the Works (in Latin translation) of St. Clement of Alexandria (ca. 150 ?- ca. 215), here in the second edition as edited by Gentian Hervet (1499?-1584); the first was in 1556 from Isengrin's press. In this edition, Isengrin's device appears on the title-page and the verso of the final leaf. As with the first edition, this has scholia at the end, notes (including sidenotes), and an index. The contents are Liber adhortatorius adversus gentes, qui Protrepticus inscribitur; Paeagogi libri tres; and Stromaton sive Commentariorum, de varia multipliciq[ue] literatura, ad instituendum Christianum philosophum, libri octo. The second work is Peter Martyr's commentaries on Corinthians, here in the second edition. It has a full-page woodcut => portrait of him on the recto of leaf aa6. The printer's woodcut device is on the title-page and there are numerous woodcut initials. The sidenotes are printed in italic while the text proper is in roman. Peter Martyr (8 September 1499 ?- 12 November 1562), was an Italian theologian who began his religious life as an Augustinian friar, converted to the Protestant cause, was closely associated on the continent with Ochino, Bucer, and some prominent Lutherans, and, while in England where he held the Regius Chair of Divinity at Oxford, was an intimate of Thomas Cranmer and Bishop Jewel. Both works are uncommon in these editions in the U.S.: We locate four copies of the first title and two of the Vermigli, but one copy of each title has been deaccessioned, meaning current holdings are three and one only. Binding: Contemporary alum-tawed pig over wooden boards with bevelled edges and metal and leather clasps; one clasp perished. Leather tooled elaborately in blind using a variety of rolls and fillets, including one roll incorporating the date 1546, a medallion of David and his harp, and another medallion depicting John the Baptist with the words below the image, "Ecce Agnus Dei. Bound as above. Ex-library with bookplate on front pastedown, small blind pressure- (not perf.) stamp on title-page and remnant of charge pocket at rear; six-digit number stamped in lower margin of one leaf. Early inked ownership indicia on title-page and old private ownership stamp on front free endpaper; a little old marginalia and underlining. A very little foxing and the odd spot only. => Excellent copies of both works in a handsome contemporary binding.

[Holzschnitt-Druckermarke] Lipsiae cvm privilegio. [Am Schluß des Bandes:] Lipsiae Excudebat Ernestus Voegelin Constantiensis. Anno 1566. (Leipzig, Ernst Vögelin 1566).

      Leipzig Ernst Vögelin 1566 - 1 Blatt (Titel mit Holzschnitt-Druckermarke); [A2 und A3 fehlen]; A4 und ein weiteres Blatt des "Prooemivm" vorhanden; [B1 - B4 fehlen]; S. 5 [=B5] - S. 423; 1 (w) Blatt; 9 Blätter. Blindgeprägter, zeitgenössischer und signierter ("M G") Reformations-Schweinslederband über Holzdeckeln über fünf Bünden und mit abgeschrägten Griffkanten, sowie den Portraits Luthers (recto) und Melanchthons (verso) nach Cranach auf beiden Deckeln, außerdem Blindprägung mit der "Caritas, Spe, Fides, Iusticia"-Rolle und weiterer Schmuck-Rollenprägung (Eichelranke) und Stempeln (Lutherrose und Pflanze). Unterhalb der Luther-Platte mit der Buchbinder-Signatur "M G", sowie einer Devise. Verso unterhalb der Melanchthon-Platte eine weitere Devise in abgeküzter Form, sowie die Rollen und Stempel des Vorderdeckels in Wiederholung. (20,5 x 13,5 cm) 8°. - Die Erstausgabe der Melanchthon-Biographie des Joachim Camerarius in einem sehr schönen Einband - VD 16 C 502 ("Im Inneren mit Satzvarianten."). OCLC 23646149. IA (Index Aureliensis) 130.520. Hartfelder 624, 43. Ebert 3391. Sowohl Hartfelder, als auch Ebert geben als Unterscheidungskriterium für einen angeblich "ersten" Druck der Erstausgabe die unterschiedliche Schreibweise von "stißimum", bzw. "stißi" auf Blatt A2 verso der Einleitung an, VD16 nennt weitere Satzvarianten, ohne sie zu spezifizieren. Da u.a. "A2" in unserem Exemplar fehlt, läßt sich für dieses Exemplar die Varianz nicht klären, wobei wir hier eher davon ausgehen, daß es sich den zeitbedingten Produktionsprozessen entsprechend nicht um unterschiedliche Ausgaben handelt, sondern um einfache Preßkorrekturen, so daß es nur diesen einen Druck gibt, der jedoch in unterschiedlichen Varianten vorliegt. Der Einband nur wenig berieben und fleckig, die Schließenlager recto vorhanden, die Bänder und ein Beschlag verso fehlen. Ansonsten ein herrliches Beispiel für einen solchen Holzdeckelband der Zeit. Auf dem vorderen Innendeckel mehrere Besitzvermerke von alter Hand. Der unleserliche oberste stammt wohl von "Johannis Rambolt", der darunter, ebenfalls nahezu unleserlich, von einem "Hinrico Stretingoro pomerano" zu dem sich weiter nichts finden läßt, die darauf folgenden vier Zeilen nur bruchstückhaft zu entziffern. Auf dem Titelblatt oben hat sich Friedrich Aggeus aus Riga im jahre 1624 verewigt, neben der großen Holzschnitt-Druckermarke ein längerer Besitzvermerk eines getilgten Eigentümers, der das Buch schon 1608 von Johannes Joannis als Geschenk zur Erinnerung erhalten hatte. Anfangs einzelne Blätter lose, bzw. fehlend. Das Titelblatt vorhanden, im Vorwort fehlen mehrere Seiten, sowie die Seiten 1 - 4 des Textes. Die fehlenden Seiten liegen in Kopie bei. Die blindgeprägten Wahlsprüche im einzelnen, recto: "IN SILENCIO ET SPE ERIT FORTITUDO VES[TRA]" (vergl. Haebler I, 15, Pl. III), der Wahlspruch Luthers stammt aus Jesaja 30, 15. Verso: "S. D. P. N. Q. C. N." = "Si Deus Pro Nobis Quis Contra Nos" (Römer 8, 31), das Motto Melanchthons. Es gibt einen engen Bezug zwischen dem Drucker und dem Inhalt des Buches. Vögelin war zeitweilig Hauslehrer bei Joachim Camerarius und das erste im eigenen Namen gedruckte Buch war 1560 Melanchthons "Corpus Doctrinae Christianae". Weitere Vögelin-Ausgaben des Titels von 1591 und 1592 finden sich unter VD16 C 503 bzw. VD16 ZV 2865, eine spätere aus dem sechzehnten Jahrhundert unter VD17 39:121903S. Die gestemplete Marke "MG" scheint in der Literatur für Matthäeus oder Mathias Gäertner gesetzt zu sein, aber warum nicht auch Melchior Gaßmann (Regensburg 1591 - 1623) in Betracht ziehen, den Haebler nicht erwähnt ? Im Rahmen einer einfachen Buchbeschreibung ist es uns allerdings nicht möglich eine wissenschaftlichen Anforderungen genügende Zuschreibung zu erstellen, die Hinweise im Text, besonders in den Anmerkungen* und das beigefügte Bildmaterial mögen Interessenten den Weg weisen. * Die ausführlichen Anmerkungen mailen wir Ihnen bei Interesse gerne zu. * Versand mit/ shipping with Deutsche Post oder/ or DHL. - Ask for [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        De Philippi Melanchthonis Ortu, Totius Vitae Curriculo et Morte.

      Leipzig: Voegelin. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur wenigen gebrauchsspuren. Einige Annotationen von alter Hand.. Leipzig, Voegelin, 1566. Octavo. [20] pp 1-419 [1] pp 420-23 [18] Seiten. Hardcover. Wunderbare, lackierte Ganzlederausgabe mit Verzierungen von Bayntun Riviere. Sehr guter Zustand mit nur wenigen gebrauchsspuren. Einige Annotationen von alter Hand. Philip Melanchthon (Philippus Melanchthon) (16 February 1497 ?- 19 April 1560), born Philipp Schwartzerdt, was a German reformer, collaborator with Martin Luther, the first systematic theologian of the Protestant Reformation, intellectual leader of the Lutheran Reformation, and an influential designer of educational systems. He stands next to Luther and Calvin as a reformer, theologian, and molder of Protestantism. Along with Luther, he is the primary founder of Lutheranism. They both denounced what they believed was the exaggerated cult of the saints, asserted justification by faith, and denounced the coercion of the conscience in the sacrament of penance by the Catholic Church, that they believed could not offer certainty of salvation. In unison they rejected transubstantiation, the belief that the bread from the Lord's Supper becomes Christ's body when consecrated. Melanchthon made the distinction between law and gospel the central formula for Lutheran evangelical insight. By the "law", he meant God's requirements both in Old and New Testament; the "gospel" meant the free gift of grace through faith in Jesus Christ. He was born Philipp Schwartzerdt (of which "Melanchthon" is a Greek translation) on 16 February 1497, at Bretten, near Karlsruhe, where his father Georg Schwarzerdt was armorer to Philip, Count Palatine of the Rhine. His birthplace, along with almost the whole city of Bretten, was burned in 1689 by French troops during the War of the Palatinate Succession. The town's Melanchthonhaus was built on its site in 1897. In 1507 he was sent to the Latin school at Pforzheim, where the rector, Georg Simler of Wimpfen, introduced him to the Latin and Greek poets and Aristotle. He was influenced by his great-uncle Johann Reuchlin, brother of his maternal grandmother, a representative humanist. It was Reuchlin who suggested the change from Schwartzerdt (literally black earth), into the Greek equivalent Melanchthon, a custom which was usual among humanists of that time. Still young, he entered in 1509 the University of Heidelberg where he studied philosophy, rhetoric, and astronomy/astrology, and was known as a good Greek scholar. On being refused the degree of master in 1512 on account of his youth, he went to Tübingen, where he continued humanistic studies, but also worked on jurisprudence, mathematics, and medicine. While there, he was taught the technical aspects of astrology by Johannes Stöffler. Having taken the degree of master in 1516, he began to study theology. Under the influence of men like Reuchlin and Erasmus he became convinced that true Christianity was something different from scholastic theology as it was taught at the university. He became a conventor (repentant) in the contubernium and instructed younger scholars. He also lectured on oratory, on Virgil and Livy. His first publications were an edition of Terence (1516) and his Greek grammar (1518), but he had written previously the preface to the Epistolae clarorum virorum of Reuchlin (1514). Opposed as a reformer at Tübingen, he accepted a call to the University of Wittenberg by Martin Luther, recommended by his great-uncle Johann Reuchlin. Melanchthon became professor of the Greek language in Wittenberg at the age of 21. He studied the Scripture, especially of Paul, and Evangelical doctrine. He was present at the disputation of Leipzig (1519) as a spectator, but participated by his comments. Johann Eck having attacked his views, Melanchthon replied based on the authority of Scripture in his Defensio contra Johannem Eckium (Wittenberg, 1519). After lectures on the Gospel of Matthew and the Epistle to the Romans, together with his investigations into the doctrines of Paul, he was granted the degree of bachelor of theology, and was transferred to the theological faculty. He married Katharina Krapp, daughter of Wittenberg's mayor, on 25 November 1520. (Wikipedia)

      Venedig, G. F. Camocio, -71, 1566 - Sehr seltene, frühe Ansicht von Konstantinopel (Istanbul) aus Camocios Isole Famose. Zeigt die Stadt aus der Vogelperspektive, ausgeschmückt mit mehreren Schiffen und einer Kompassrose. Camocios Druckvermerk in der unteren rechten Ecke 'Appreßo Gioan Francesco Camocio'. Unterhalb der Abbildung eine Legende zu den wichtigen Gebäuden, Kirchen und Orten von a-z, aa-zz und aaa-nnn. Dieses Blatt wurde vom ersten Zustand der Platte gedruckt, ohne die Zahl in der unteren rechten Ecke und ist äußerst selten auf dem Markt zu finden. Zu den begehrtesten kartographischen Arbeiten zählen die Italienischen Atlanten des 16. Jahrhunderts. Neben den sogenannten Lafreri Atlanten, einer individuellen Zusammenstellung von Karten verschiedener Größen, entstanden bei den Venezianischen Verlegern Camocio und Bertelli auch einige Atlanten mit Karten von einheitlicher Größe und Machart. Einer der wichtigsten dieser Atlanten, ist der erstmals 1566 von Camocio herausgegebene Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime, eine Zusammenstellung von Karten der Gebiete, welche unter Einfluss der Venezianer standen. Dargestellt wird die Situation während der Belagerung Wiens 1566, sowie die Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Venezianern und Türken im Mittelmeer während der Jahre 1570-1573. Beinhaltet sind vornehmlich Karten der Mittelmeer Küsten, die wichtigsten Inseln, sowie Stadtansichten. Der Atlas wurde zwischen 1566 und 1574 von Camocio ohne Titel herausgegeben, ab 1575 erschien die Kartensammlung, gedruckt von den original Platten, bei Donato Bertelli. - Mit Rändern, selten, da Blätter aus Camocios Isole Famose zumeist am oder in den Plattenrand beschnitten sind. Zwei kleine Wurmlöcher hinterlegt. Etwas fleckig. Guter, kräftiger Abdruck. - A very rare, early view of Constantinople (Istanbul) from Camocio's Isole Famose. Showing the city from above, decorated with several ships and a compass rose. Camocio's imprint in the lower right corner 'Appreßo Gioan Francesco Camocio'. Below a key from a-z, aa-zz and aaa-nnn, naming important buildings, churches and places. This copy is printed from the first state of the plate, without the number in the lower right corner and is extremely rare to find on the market. The Italian atlases of the 16th Century are among the much sought after cartographic rarities. Besides the so-called Lafreri atlases, a compilation of individual maps of various sizes, the Venetian publishers Camocio and Bertelli issued a few atlases with maps of uniform size and style. Isole Famose porti, fortezze, e terre maritime is one of the most important of these atlases, issued first by Camocio in 1566 It comprises a collection of maps of the areas under the influence of the Venetians. Shown is the situation during the siege of Vienna in 1566, and the battle between the Venetians and Turks in the Mediterranean during the years 1570-1573. Mainly included are maps of the Mediterranean coasts, the main islands, and city views. The atlas was published between 1566 and 1574 by Camocio without a title, after 1575 it was issued by Donato Bertelli with a printed title, also printed from the original plates. - With margin, which is rare, since sheets from Camocio's Isole Famose often cut along or within plate marks. Two tiny worm holes backed. Some small tears in margin backed. Some staining. A good and strong impression.

        Origine de Cavalieri.

      Camillo & Rutilio Borgomineri, Venice 1566 - FIRST EDITION. ff. [viii] 152. Italic letter, small woodcut printer's device on title, early autograph inked over, contemp. and early press marks on fly. Historiated woodcut initials, four full page woodcuts of the insignia of the orders of the Garter, Golden Fleece, Savoy and St. Michel, some light age browning to first two quires, small oil stains on three lls. A good copy in contemporary limp vellum, small tear to spine First edition of Sansovino's popular and interesting treatise on the history of the chivalric orders of Europe, dedicated to Cosimo de Medici, in which he describes their respective origins, rules, and membership. He starts with a good definition of a Knight "Onde si vede senza alcun dubbio che cavaliero, nell'una e nell'altra lingua, non vuol dire altro che dignità, provenuta nello uomo dallo essercizio dell'armi fatto a cavallo, percioché dicendosi cavaliero si intende persona di qualità e degna di onore". In his introduction Sansovino divides the various orders into three categories; Knights of the Cross, the Collar and the Sword. He then discuses in detail the various orders of knights of Europe past, such as the Templars, and present such as the Knights of Malta, giving examples of specific knights and listing the names of knights of the highest orders, followed by thirty one short biographies of famous Italian knights. He finishes with interesting descriptions of the Islands of Malta and Elba. Born in Rome in 1521, Francisco Sansovino was brought to Venice following the sack of his native city in 1527. He studied law in Padua and Bologna, and after attempting a career at the court of Pope Julius III, returned to Venice. Sansovino typifies the figures who moved in the editorial circles of the period. A polygraph author of poetry, prose writings on literature, history and rhetoric, as well as a translator and editor, Sansovino not only compiled, translated, and annotated texts for Venetian printers, but opened his own printing house, publishing around thirty editions, many of good quality, between 1560-62 and in 1568. He was widely read during the Renaissance, especially his historical works. This first edition is quite rare and of one of Sansovino's rarer works. BM STC It. C16. p. 608. Graesse VI 267.

        Brief mit eigenh. U. ("Lamoral degmont").

      Brüssel, 30. IX. 1566.. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt mit Adresse verso.. An den Erzbischof und Kurfürsten von Mainz, Daniel Brendel von Homburg (1523-82), mit der Bitte, seinen Kellermeister Eberhart Maulbrunner, der in seinem Auftrag 24 Fuder Wein gekauft hat, ungehindert die Mautposten des Rheins passieren zu lassen: "[...] Euer Churf. Gn. fueg ich dienstlich zuvernemen, wie das ich jetzundt abermals gegenwertigen brieffsbringer meinen keller Eberharten Maulbrunner hinauff in Theutschlandt an den rheinstrom abgefertiget, und ime bevelch geben hab, derselben ortten herumb zu behuff und notturfft meiner haußhaltung biß in vierundzwainzig zolbare fueder weins zuerkauffen, und volgendes dieselben zu schieffs herab zuverschaffen.

        Le dieci mascherate delle bufole mandate in Firenze il giorno di Carnovale l'anno 1565. Con la descrizzione di tutta la pompa delle Maschere, e loro invenzioni

      Appresso i Giunti, Florence 1566 - A scarce work describing the elaborate festival in Florence during Carnevale. Christie's aptly described this work in the Feltrinelli sale of 1998 stating: "The Carnival at Florence in 1565 was particularly noteworthy for having ten masked groups, each led in the parade by a bufala, a female buffalo, also in costume. The author describes the participants and their fancy dress: Zanobi Carnesecchi was dressed as Wickedness hunted by his party of Flagellators, Capponi was Osiris accompanied by his Egyptian retinue, and the guild of Genovese merchants staged a baccanale. The Marquise of Castiglione, Don Luigi da Toledo, Cardinal Medici and Prince Francesco himself were also among the participants. The Carnival parade ended with a magnificent show of famous mythic and classical heroes: Caesar and Pompeo, Alexander and Cirus, Hector and Achilles, in honour of Grand Duke Cosimo and his heir Francesco. Afterwards a race with the bufalas was held, and the fireworks, music and dancing did not end before 3.00 the next morning." Small 8vo (14.6 x 8.8cm), 56 pp. [i.e. 48]. Medici coat of arms on title-page. Some foxing and toning throughout. Bound in 19th century vellum over boards with, new endpapers inserted and original endpapers preserved.

        Viaggio del Rever. P. F. Noe Bianco vinitiano dela congretation de' servi; Fatto in Terra Santa, & descrito per beneficio de' pellegrini, & di chi desidera havere intera cognition di quei Santi luoghi.

      Venedig, Giorgio die Cavalli für Francesco Portinari da Trino, 1566. Format: . [16], 91, [1] Bl.. Mit kleiner Holzschnitt-Titelvignette Cavallos auf dem Titel und großer Portinaris auf dem letzten Blatt.. Einfacher Pappband der Zeit mit hs. Rückenschild vom Block gelöst, stärker fleckig und berschabt.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe. *** Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses außergewöhnlich seltenen, frühen Reisehandbuchs mit einer Beschreibung des Heiligen Landes und Anweisungen zur glücklichen Pilgerfahrt zum Grab Christi und den heiligen Stätten von dem wohl um 1890 geborenen und 1568 gestorbenen weiter nicht bekannten Autor Noe Bianco, der dem venezianischen Orden von Santa Maria die Servi (im Sestiere Cannareggio) angehörte. Gewidmet ist das Werk dem "Procuratore di San Marco" Senor Giulio Contarini, dem der Autor auch eine ausführliche Einleitung zudenkt, in der er beschreibt, dass er seine Reise im Jahre 1527 unternommen hat: "Dedico dunque a V. Magn. Claris. Il Viaggio, ch'io feci l'anno di N. S. MDXXVII per tutti i luoghi di Terra Sancta, & de scrissi all'hora, parte mosso da certa mia curiosa & natural vaghezza d'haver cognition delle cose notabili; & parte indotto da desiderio di poter giovare a quel Pellegrini, che spinti da zelo Christiano vanno a visitar quei benedetti luoghi". Das Werk ist also keinesfalls identisch mit dem 1519 anonym erschienenen "Viaggio da Venezia al Santo Sepolcro", das oft Noe Bianchi zugeschrieben wurden (vgl. STC 717 und Index Aureliensis 118.967ff.). Bianco beschreibt seine Abfahrt aus Venedig mit der "Nave Moresini", die Überfahrt über Rhodos nach Jaffa. Es folgen die ausführlichen Beschreibungen von Jaffa, Jerusalem, dem Zionsberg, Bethlehem, den Prozessionen, der Grabeskirche, des Josaphat-Tales, Ölbergs, Bethanien, sodann Biancos Reise nach Jericho und ins Jordantal, zum Toten Meer und in die große Wüste ("Mar morto, & della vasta solitudine, o diserto"). Weiter geht es in die judäischen Berge, nach Hebron, Galilea, nach Nazareth. Hier sind auch die allgemeinen Betrachten von höchstem Interesse: "Della grandezza in universale di tutto paese di Terra santa & de popoli, che v'habitano - Che i Marcomettani hanno gran devotione a Giesu Christo & alle Vergine Maria". Auch die Fruchtbarkeit des Landes, die Qualität der Gewässer, die Reinheit der Luft und die gesundheitsfördernde Wirkung des Klimas wird beschreiben: "Della perfettion dell'aria di Terra Santa". Auch den Tieren, Pflanzen und Bäumen widmet Bianco eigene Kapitel, bevor er die aufregende Rückreise antritt ("Partita da Gierusalem") über den Libanon, Zypern, Tripolis, Alexandria, Rhodos und Kreta, Korfu, Ragusa und Zara dann endlich wieder den sicheren Hafen von Venedig erreicht. Eine der spannenden Begebenheiten ist die "Fortuna havuta nel partirci di Candia con uno stupendo caso occorso a un crudel Bestemmiatore" Alles ist aufgeschlüsselt in drei "Tavole - Una die capitoli, l'altra delle cose notabili: & la terza della miglia, che sono da un luogo all'altro". Die hübsche Druckermarke von Giorgio Cavalli auf dem Titel zeigt den einen Kampfturm tragenden Elefanten. Die ganzseitige Druckermarke am Schluss enthält in einer großen manieristischen Kartusche einen Schutzengel mit dem Wappenmonogramm "FP" für Francesco Portinari. Bindung gelöst, teils Lagen lose, oben etwas knapper beschnitten, gering wellig, kaum fleckig, Titel alt gestempelt der "Domus S. Nicola Tolent. Vened", also einstiger Besitz der venezianischen Kirche San Nicola da Tolentino im Sestiere Santa Croce. Vorsatz mit einem moderneren Stahlstich-Exlibris einer englischen Bibliothek des 19.

The book begins with an apology for the story of Herodotus Henri Estienne (from the 3rd generation of Estienne, illustrious family famous for its Greek and Latin editions publishers), which he wrote in response to some ecclesiastical authorities who criticized the story of Herodotus. The translation is the work of the Italian humanist Lorenzo Valla (1406-1457), Latinist and Hellenist recognized, he began the translation in 1450. Life of Homer is itself the work of a German humanist Conrad Heresbach . One who has been called the father of history interested in the Persian Wars and Egypt, but more remarkable for us is its contemporary method that earned him his nickname, he wrote nothing before visiting places where history had been conducted. His books are so rich a wealth of observations from the field. And thanks to him we know the manners and habits of the Egyptians. Less known that befriended Sophocles who wrote him a poem. It is Herodotus lived in the golden age Greece fifth century BC) and his style is pleasant, attractive (he was a great admirer of Homer), while wanting and impartial examiner history as a memoirist. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

Reliure en demi veau émeraude deuxième moitié XIXe, dos lisse à petit fers et roulettes. Pièce de titre rouge. Exemplaire très frais. Restauration des mors. L'ouvrage commence par l'apologie de l'histoire d'Hérodote d'Henri Estienne (issu de la 3e génération des Estienne, illustre famille d'éditeurs célèbres pour ses éditions grecques et latines), qu'il écrivit pour répondre à certaines autorités ecclésiastiques qui critiquaient l'histoire d'Herodote. La traduction est l'œuvre de l'humaniste italien Lorenzo Valla (1406-1457), latiniste et helléniste reconnu, il commença cette traduction vers 1450. La vie d'Homère est quant à elle l'œuvre d'un humaniste allemand Conrad Heresbach. Celui qu'on a surnommé le père de l'histoire s'intéressa aux guerres médiques et à l'égypte, mais le plus remarquable pour nous autres contemporains est sa méthode qui lui valut son surnom, il n'écrivait rien avant de visiter les lieux où s'était déroulé l'histoire. Ses livres sont ainsi riches d'une foule d'observations recueillies sur le terrain. Nous connaissons ainsi grâce à lui les mœurs et les habitudes des égyptiens. On sait moins qu'il se lia avec Sophocle qui lui écrivit un poème. C'est qu'Hérodote vécut à l'âge d'or de la Grèce -Ve siècle avant J.C) et son style se veut plaisant, attrayant (il était un grand admirateur d'Homère), tout en se voulant impartial et examinateur de l'histoire tant que mémorialiste.

        Joannis Mesuae damasceni de re medica libri tres Jacobo Sylvio interpret

Edition went through several editions in 1544 and 1548. Brunet III, 1675. Vellum Full time flexible flap with traces of laces. Lack some of the top flap. Abu Zakariya Yahya Ibn Masuyah said Jean Mesue, Christian physician born in Khuz near Nineveh in 776 and died in Baghdad in 855, where he practiced and practiced medicine, and was the personal physician of the Caliph Harun al-Rashid. Besides the prominent role he played in Arabic medicine, reflecting number of Greek texts, his book of aphorisms (medical axioms) had considerable success in the West, some of which are still in use today. He also wrote the first treatise on diet based on boards properties of Gallien, analyzing the effects of boards on the body 140. Furthermore Arab medicine began to influence in a significant way in Europe in the fifteenth century, as the Arab had commented and translated many Greek texts, including some great academies such as Montpellier and Paris, it is here that we find our commentator, a great physician of his time, Jacobus Sylvius or Jacques Dubois (1478-1554), who officiated in Paris and Montpellier, driven from Paris because he was not MD and wore too much shading his fame (they came from all over Europe to consult). Arabs are especially fathers pharmacopoeia and it is precisely the interest of this edition, meeting of two great doctors on issues Remedies centuries apart. Sylvius rénuni in this work the three greatest works of Mesue the question: Cyril medicamenta purgentia and De singularis medicamentis purgantibus. As for the book III, it is the Antidotarium the great work Mesue. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate.

L'édition connut plusieurs éditions en 1544 et 1548. Brunet III, 1675. Reliure en plein vélin d'époque souple à rabats avec traces de lacets. Manque une partie du rabat supérieur. Abu Zakariya Yahya Ibn Masuyah dit Jean Mesue, médecin chrétien né à Khuz prés de Ninive en 776 et mort à Bagdad en 855 où il exerça et pratiqua la médecine, et qui fut le médecin personnel du khalife Haroun El Rachid. En dehors du rôle prééminent qu'il joua dans la médecine arabe, traduisant nombre de textes grecs, son livre des aphorismes (des axiomes médicaux) eut un succès considérable en occident, dont certains ont encore cours aujourd'hui. Il rédigea également le premier traité de diététique reposant sur les propriétés des aliments de Gallien, analysant les effets de 140 aliments sur le corps. Par ailleurs la médecine arabe commença à influencer d'une manière importante l'Europe au XVe siècle, car les arabes avaient commenté et traduit nombre de textes grecs, et notamment certaines grandes académies telles que Montpellier et Paris, c'est ici que nous retrouvons notre commentateur, un grand médecin de son temps, Jacobus Sylvius ou Jacques Dubois (1478-1554), qui officia à Paris, puis à Montpellier, chassé de Paris car il n'était point Docteur en médecine et portait trop d'ombrage par sa renommée (on venait de toute l'Europe pour le consulter). Les arabes sont surtout les pères de la pharmacopée et c'est précisément l'intérêt de cette édition, rencontre de deux grands médecins sur des questions de remèdes à plusieurs siècles d'intervalle. Sylvius a rénuni dans cet ouvrage les trois plus grands ouvrages de Mésué sur la question : Methodus medicamenta purgentia et De singularis medicamentis purgantibus. Quant au livre III, il s'agit de l'Antidotarium, le grand ouvrage de Mesué.

        T. Lucretii Cari de Rerum Natura Libri Sex

      1566.. Antverpiae Platinus 464 Seiten gebundene Ausgabe, Ledereinband. antike vermutlich extrem seltene gebundene Ausgabe in braunem Leder, mit Goldprägung auf Einband, Einband stark berieben und nachgedunkelt,Schnitt nachgedunkelt, Seiten leicht nachgedunkelt, KEIN NACHDRUCK, Erschienen 1566 (gem. Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte), auf den ersten 5 Seiten leicht Wasserränder, geschrieben in Latein, Lukrez hat sein Werk möglicherweise nicht vollendet. Dies lässt vor allem De rerum natura 5,155 vermuten: Lukrez kündigt hier eine lange Abhandlung (largus sermo) über das Wesen der Götter an, die aber nicht zur Ausführung gelangt. Entweder ist Lukrez nicht mehr dazu gekommen, diese Abhandlung zu verfassen, oder er hat diese Absicht fallen gelassen und ist verstorben, bevor er den Vers tilgen konnte (die Mehrheit der Forscher neigt der zweiten Möglichkeit zu)....Lukrez war ein Vertreter der Atomistik. Er berief sich vor allem auf die Lehre von Epikur. Sein Lehrer war wahrscheinlich Philodemos. Lukrez gilt als der Archeget des lateinischen Lehrgedichts. Sein Einfluss ist nicht auf die weitere römische Lehrdichtung (z. B. Vergils Georgica, Ovids Ars Amatoria, Manilius' Astronomica, das anonyme Aetna-Gedicht) beschränkt, sondern wirkt über Vergils Aeneis auf das gesamte lateinische Epos ab der augusteischen Zeit.Für das Alter ein sehr gut erhaltener Band Lukrez war überzeugt, dass die Seele sterblich sei (wofür er 28 "Beweise" vorbrachte[13]) und dass es den Göttern nicht möglich sei, sich in das Leben der Menschen einzumischen. Seine Philosophie sollte dem Menschen Gemütsruhe und Gelassenheit geben und ihm die Furcht vor dem Tode und den Göttern nehmen. Lukrez nimmt, im Gegensatz zu Epikur, Anteil an den gesellschaftlichen Ereignissen seiner Zeit, verurteilt den sittlichen Verfall des Adels, klagt den Krieg und seine Schrecken an.In seiner Wahrnehmungstheorie prägte Lukrez den für die postmoderne Philosophie einflussreichen Begriff des Simulakrums.Lukrez und Cicero waren Pioniere der "philosophischen Schriftstellerei" in lateinischer Sprache. Sie mussten daher oft erst ein geeignetes Vokabular prägen (Lukrez spricht von der Dürftigkeit der Muttersprache patrii sermonis egestas) und um Unabhängigkeit von der griechischen Sprache und Literatur ringen.(Quelle Wikkipedia) Maße 16,5 x 11,5 cm

        Les paradoxes du seigneur de Malestroict, conseiller du roy, et maistre ordinaire de ses comptes, sur le faict des monnoyes, presentez à sa maiesté, au mois de mars, m.d.lxvi

      Paris: Vascosan,, 1566. Octavo in fours, pp. (24). Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine tiled in gilt, green silk ribbon marker. Woodcut initials and headpieces. One or two light spots; an excellent copy. Scarce first edition of Malestroit's controversial treatise demonstrating, against the contemporary popular opinion in France, the constancy of prices over the past three centuries. Malestroit sought to prove that, despite the nominal raising of prices, the goods had in fact been exchanged for the same quantity of gold or silver, because the lowering quantity of metal in the coins had remained proportional to the increase in prices. This work, now scarce in its first edition, provoked a famous Réponse by Bodin, published in 1568, an attack on the effects of the deluge of Peruvian silver that had invaded Europe, in which he was the first to demonstrate "that the diminution in the weight of the coins was by no means commensurate with the change in prices" (Monroe, Monetary theory before Adam Smith, p. 57). Malestroict's work was also the first to use the form of "paradoxes" in economics. Its theory "influenced the monetary reform of 1577 which made it obligatory to render accounts in real money, taking the escu d'or as its basis" (A. Steczowicz, Renaissance monetary paradoxes: the Malestroit-Bodin controversy, in Renaissance Journal 2.4, Warwick University, June 2005). It would appear that three issues were published in 1566: two in Paris, by Vascosan and Martin, and one in Lyon. The Martin issue, of which only one copy survives, has 10 leaves only, while the Lyon issue (again, one copy extant only) has the same collation as this Vascosan issue. A second edition came out twelve years later, in 1578.

        Libro primo (secondo, terzo, quarto, quinto, estraordinario) d?architettura... -

      Venezia, Senese e Krugher, 1566.In - 4. Legatura del ?600 in pergamena, titolo ms. sul dorso. Con 6 frontespizi architettonici, diagrammi e numerose illustrazioni silografiche n.t., moltissime a piena pagina, incise da Giovanni Chrieger (Krugher) e derivate dalle edizioni originali in - folio. 219, (1 bianco), 52 ff.; antica firma di appartenenza sulla prima carta e nel margine inferiore del frontespizio; alcune carte leggermente ingiallite e lievi aloni marginali su poche carte. Prima edizione in quarto della celebre opera dell?architetto bolognese. I vari libri furono originariamente pubblicati in ordine irregolare e in città diverse (Venezia, Parigi, Francoforte) tra il 1537 e il 1575 (settimo libro). Fu il primo trattato di architettura il cui scopo fosse più pratico che teorico, ed il primo a codificare i cinque ordini. Si distingue per il tono pragmatico, per l'intento didattico e per la grande importanza data alle immagini, risultando un passaggio importante ed anticipatore non solo nella storia della trattatistica di architettura, ma anche nella storia della stampa, in generale. Ebbe un notevole successo, testimoniato dalle numerose ristampe e traduzioni in varie lingue (francese, tedesco, inglese, fiammingo). Cicognara 668. Berlin Kat. 2570. Fowler 327. First quarto edition of Serlio?s influential and finely illustrated work. "The first genuine advance in architectural illustration seems to have been made by Serlio, and his Libro Terzo set the type of architectural illustration in Italy for the rest of the century" (Fowler 308). With 6 architectural titles, various diagrams and numerous text woodcuts, many full page. Early owner?s names on first page and lower margin of title; light marginal damp stain on a few leaves and some yellowing here and there, but generally a good copy bound in 17th century vellum (slightly soiled), ms. title on spine.

        Gynaeciorum, hoc est, de mulierum tum aliis, tum gravidarum, parientium & puerperarum affectibus & morbis: .

      Basileae: Per Thomam Guarinum, 1566. - Quarto. [20], 5-868 columns [text has [432] pages containing columns 5-868], [22], [8], 63pp. Text printed in two columns. Printer's device on title-page; another one on last leaf verso. Later calf, rebacked. With textual woodcuts. Bound with: Mena, Fernando. Methodus febrium omnium . Considered to be the first encylopedia of gynecology and obstetrics. Complied by Conrad Gesner, but completed, with additional material, by Hans Wolf and published one year after Gesner's death. Text contains the first edition of Moschion, "De morbis mulieribus Moschio?nos peri gynakeio?n patho?n." An ugly stain runs through most of the upper margin, affecting mostly the running titles, but occasionally dipping down onto the first or second line of text, but never obscuring it. At its worst, the stain is about two inches long, and about an inch high; at its best, it is much smaller. Additionally, this item has an intriguing entry that points to a wonderful provenance. On one of the front free endpapers, the name 'Sir James Y. Simpson' is boldly inscribed. I cannot ascertain whether the inscription is in Sir James Simpson's hand, or whether he signed his name as 'Sir James Y. Simpson' in later years. Signatures of his that I have seen on-line look rather different. It is possible, however, that this was a simple acknowledgement by Sir James Y. Simpson of his ownership of the item. Secondly, this book came from a collection of other medical books containing the bookplate of Sir Alexander Russell Simpson in memory of Sir James Young Simpson, so that the association with the Simpsons is undeniable.

        Joannis Mesuae damasceni, de re medica, libri tres, Jacobo Sylvio interprete

      The first edition of these three treaties Mesue commented by Sylvius appeared in Paris in 1542 into a Christian Weschel Vol. in Folio. Edition went through several editions in 1544 and 1548. Brunet III, 1675. Vellum Full time flexible flap with traces of laces. Lack some of the top flap. Abu Zakariya Yahya Ibn Masuyah said Jean Mesue, Christian physician born in Khuz near Nineveh in 776 and died in Baghdad in 855, where he practiced and practiced medicine, and was the personal physician of the Caliph Harun al-Rashid. Besides the prominent role he played in Arabic medicine, reflecting number of Greek texts, his book of aphorisms (medical axioms) had considerable success in the West, some of which are still in use today. He also wrote the first treatise on diet based on food properties of Gallien, analyzing the effects of food on the body 140. Furthermore Arab medicine began to influence in a significant way in Europe in the fifteenth century, as the Arab had commented and translated many Greek texts, including some great academies such as Montpellier and Paris, it is here that we find our commentator, a great physician of his time, Jacobus Sylvius or Jacques Dubois (1478-1554), who officiated in Paris and Montpellier, driven from Paris because he was not MD and wore too much shading his fame (they came from all over Europe to consult). Arabs are especially fathers pharmacopoeia and it is precisely the interest of this edition, meeting of two great doctors on issues Remedies centuries apart. Sylvius rénuni in this work the three greatest works of Mesue the question: Cyril medicamenta purgentia and De singularis medicamentis purgantibus. As for the book III, it is the Antidotarium the great work Mesue. apud Guliel. Rovillium Lugduni (Lyon) 1566 in 8 (16,7x11,5cm) de (14) 364 pp. Un Vol. relié
