Vellum cockled, dusty, and slightly torn or chipped at head and tail of spine; lacking in all twenty-two leaves ex 340 (v. note); last two gatherings bound in reversed order; strip cut from margin of N2 (possibly to remove a side-note); lower fore-corner torn from S6, with loss to small portion of marginal type-ornament; marginal tears and small chip to Bb2, with loss of four or five letters of side-note; two small holes in Ff4, with loss of three letters of text, and insignificant damage to illustration; light smudging (probably a fault during printing) to fore-margin of Kk6, touching but not obscuring two of the side-notes; small chip to extreme blank lower-margin Ll3 and Ll4; chips and small tears to blank fore-margin Nn1 unobtrusively repaired with matching period paper and without loss to either text or side-notes; light damp-staining to Oo1; trimming error to Pp4 leaving flap of extra paper at lower fore-corner (and corner folded in), showing leaf was originally 18mm longer and wider; marginal pen trials to Tt6v (with offsetting), and third A6r; small light stain blank lower margin second E2 - 4 and third B5 - 6; last three leaves dusty, and C3 - 4 frayed at lower fore-margins with loss of about ten letters of text on versos; some extreme blank corners turned or worn; in general, however, a clean, sound copy of a very scarce book, distinctly so to-day in its original dress. For all practical purposes the earliest purchasable text in English of &#145;The Ship of Fools&#146;, preceded only by an edition of the same translation published by Pynson late in 1509, and a translation by Henry Watson published by Wynkyn de Worde earlier the same year, both of which are now very rare. The main text is a rather loose rendering of &#145;Das Narrenschiff&#146;, a satirical poem by the humanist poet Sebastian Brant (1458 - 1521), published originally in German in 1494, but based not upon Brant&#146;s original but on a Latin version by Jacob Locher, first published in 1497 and here included as a parallel text (printed in Roman type, the English text being in Gothic), with hints from the version in French by Pierre Rivière dating from the same year, and also from a version in Dutch. The Barclay text is supplemented not only by side-notes, but also by interpolations in verse, by Barclay, for the most part identified as such by sub-titles. The woodcuts in the present edition are from the same blocks that were used by Pynson in the original edition of Barclay&#146;s translation, and were cut after the Parisian copies made for the 1497 French translation. The Parisian blocks in their turn were imitations of the woodcuts used in the original German edition (Basel, 1494), which used to be ascribed to Dürer, though are now considered to have been the work of the Master of the Bergman Printing House. &#145;Das Narrenschiff&#146;, in which each of the one hundred and eleven fools contained in the ship embody some vice or other human imperfection, was one of the most popular books of its time. Added in this edition are two extra related and interesting texts: &#145;The Mirrour of good Maners. Conteining the foure Cardinal Vertues, compiled in Latin by Dominike Mancin, and translated into English by Alexander Barclay priest, and Monke of Ely. At the desire of the righte worshipfull sir [sic] Giles Alington Knight.&#146; [ff.(1)-(42): (STC 17243, the second edition of a translation of &#145;De quattuor virtutibus&#146; first published c.1518), and &#145;Certayne egloges Of Alexander Barclay Priest, Whereof the first three conteyne the miseryes Of Courtiers and Courtes of all princes in generall, Gathered out of a booke named in Latin, Miseriæ Cvrialium, compiled By Eneas Siluius [PICCOLOMINI, i.e., Pope Pius II] Poet and Oratour.&#146; [ff.(1)-(24): (a reprint of STC 1384/5)]. The limp vellum wrappers of this volume could never have been intended as a permanent binding. It must have been expected that the purchaser of so expensive a thing as a thick folio volume would have it properly bound in leather over boards (conceivably of oak). At the time this volume was published, printers were still usually their own publishers, and it is a reasonable assumption, therefore, that the book was bound as we now see it for, or by, Cawood - for as McKerrow notes &#147;many of the early printers were also binders&#148; (Introduction to Bibliography, 1928, p.121). Limp vellum wrappers represented a cheap way of protecting the text until a purchaser were found. If this is the case, the printer&#146;s waste used for the end-papers is not without interest, since it consists of two preliminary leaves from a folio Great Bible, and Cawood himself, who died in 1572, printed editions of the Great Bible in 1568 and 1569 - just one year before the present volume. The end-papers, however, are not from Cawood&#146;s Great Bibles, but apparently from the seventh edition of the Great Bible, printed in 1541 by Richard Grafton, the leaves concerned being headed alternately &#145;The Prologue&#146; and &#145;To the Reader&#146; and being identifiable as to their origin by the existence at the end of the Prologue beneath the words &#145;God save the King&#146; of two pairs of large initials, in each case &#145;H&#146; and &#145;R&#146;, the first pair decorated and an inch high, the lower pair some two and a half inches high and of very elaborate design, and also by the signature mark, which is a Maltese cross. Between the upper pair of initials is what appears to be an ownership inscription in an early (court) hand, now largely illegible. The question arises, if the volume were so dressed for Cawood, how he came to be using a 1541 Great Bible as waste-paper in 1570? - and it is an interesting speculation that he may earlier have been using it as printer&#146;s copy. The missing leaves are ¶1 (title); D1, I5, Q6, Cc2 and Cc5, Ff2, Oo6 (Fols.9, 53, 96, 152, 155, 170, and 222 in &#145;Stultifera Navis&#146;); the second C3 and C4 (&#145;Mirror of Good Manners&#146;); C and D 1, 2, 5, and 6 in the (third and fourth &#145;Eclogue&#146;). In this copy the following errors of foliation have been noted: 31 marked 13, 99: 96, 150: 156, 191: 188, 200: 100, and 201: 205. STC (2nd ed.) 3546; Pforzheimer, 41; ESTC S107135.

        I Quattro Libri dell&#39;Architettura [The Four Books of Architecture]

      Venice: Domenico de&#39;Franceschi. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. First edition of arguably the most influential architectural book in the Western World, with over 200 woodcut illustrations. PMM 92. "Palladio&#39;s lasting influence on architectural style in many parts of the world was exercised less through his actual buildings than through his textbook. This is divided into four sections: orders and elementary problems, domestic building, public building and town planning and temples. Palladio&#39;s style was directly inspired by Roman classical models through the writings of Vitruvius and Alberti. Its characteristics are those of classicism: symmetry, order, fixed mathematical relations of the parts to each other and to the whole, logic and monumentality&hellip; In spite of the vogue for the baroque and the fact that Palladio left no immediate successors, his book exerted a powerful influence on contemporary architecture and classical ideals until the end of the eighteenth century. In England&hellip; &#39;Palladianism&#39; became a party label in the world of connoisseurship and England blossomed with buildings &#39;in the Palladian style&#39;-two centuries after Palladio had created it. From England the style made its way into Scotland, Ireland and America" (Printing and the Mind of Man 92).&#8232;&#8232; "The Quattro Libri exerted an astonishing impact on the architects and architecture of the centuries following its publication, and helped make Palladio the most imitated architect of all time" (Wiebenson, Architectural theory and Practice).  Palladio&#39;s neo-Renaissance followers include Inigo Jones, Christopher Wren, and Thomas Jefferson.  In fact, Jefferson&#39;s designs for his Monticello estate and the University of Virginia were based on Palladio&#39;s  Four Books, which Jefferson referred to as his "Bible".&#8232;&#8232; Venice: Domenico de&#39;Franceschi, 1570. Folio, early (possibly contemporary) Italian vellum. Expert (and likely early) unobtrusive reinforcement to the hinges of the versos of the first two leaves. Two tiny wormholes to first few leaves; a few spots of dampstaining in the first few gatherings; otherwise text exceptionally clean and crisp with unusually wide margins. An outstanding copy in beautiful early Italian vellum.

        OPERA OMNIA quae hactenus inveniri potuerunt: cum eruditorum testimoniis & laudibus. Hyppolita Taurellae elegia elegantissima. Quibus Caelij S. C. selecta epistolae ac orationes accesserunt

      Basil:: P. Perna,, 1570.. Third and final, enlarged edition of Olympia&#39;s Opera to be edited by Celio Secondo Curio "revised during his dying hours" and which also includes his dedication to Queen Elizabeth of England.. 8vo, [16] 511. With woodcut printer&#39;s device and elaborate woodcut border facing the beginning of the text. Bound in contemporary green vellum with red fore-edges which are tooled in blind. Two small old collection stamps on title and repaired, at an early time, in two blank places where an owner&#39;s name was removed. Contemporary owner has supplied an index on the back paste-down; later owner&#39;s inscriptions on front paste-down; some light toning of paper. This is a much enlarged edition of her work, the second edition was only 278 pages. § VD 16, M 6288; Adams M 1740; Erdmann 116. Olympia Morata (1526-1555) was born in Ferrara and first educated by her father. In 1540 she was invited to become the companion of Anna d&#39;Este, sister of Francis I. At the court of Ferrata, Olympia also met Celio Curio, classical scholar and early convert to Protestantism, who later was to become the executor of her writings. To this period belongs her declamations on Cicero&#39;s Stoic Paradoxes and In Praise of Mutius Scaevola ... a Latin translation of a novel of Boccaccio, two Greek poems and a few letters. After a visit from the Pope, the death of her father and the scrutiny of the Inquisition, Morata was banned from the court in 1548. With her marriage to Andreas Grunthler, she left Italy to finally reside in her husband&#39;s native city of Schweinfurt where she was able to resume her studies. They left during the siege of Schweinfurt and her husband was able to find a position in Heidelberg. However, their health was destroyed and they died of the plague. Erdmann notes: "Morata surely was one of the most learned women of her age. For her, learning was not a mere ornament, but her true identity. She also was one of the very first women whose writings were put on the index. In fact her name is found on the list of prohibited authors of the &#39;second class&#39; in the Clementine Index of 1596

        Il Soldato . nel quale si tratta di tutto quello, che ad un vero soldato, & nobil cavalliere si conviene sapere, & essercitare nel mestiere dell'arme .

      Venice, Gabriel Giolito di Ferrara, 1570 (colophon: Venice, Giovanni Griffio, 1569). - Small 4to. [8]f + 254p. Without last blank leaf. Roman & italic letter. Title with Giolito's phoenix device incorporated in cartouche and ornamental head-piece, a full-page woodcut of a condottiere on a war horse, 13 textual woodcuts, 26 letter diagrams showing troop formations (1 full-page), decorative woodcut initials and ornaments at beginning. 18th century vellum. First edition, second issue. A general treatise on the art of war by a Bolognese author in the Parman service. Book I is devoted to the duties of a commander and his senior officers; book II treats infantry tactics and battle orders - the author advocates separate formations of pike-men and arquebusiers, each made up in rows of six, marching in parallel order for mutual support; book III on fortification appears to be largely based on Maggi & Castriotto's Fortificatione delle città (- see Jähns 820); book IV instructs on drawing up plans for siege craft and on guarding a conquered city. The splendid full-page woodcut of a mounted condottiere in full armour facing the first page of text is thought to be based on Titian's equestrian portrait of the Emperor Charles V, although the fleur-de-lys decor of the caparison would suggest a French king. Published by Giolito as part of his historical series 'Collana historica' under the editorship of Tommaso Porcacchi. Mora's dedication to Ottavio Farnese, Duke of Parma, is dated 23 June 1569; most of this edition printed by Griffio was acquired by Giolito, who added a preface by Tommaso Porcacchi to Lodovico Malaspina and a new title page with the date 1570 - Bongi, Giolito, II, pp300-304; see also Promis, C., 'Gl'ingegneri e gli scrittori militari bolognesi del XV e XVI secolo' in Miscellanea di storia italiana, vol.4 (1863), pp685-6.

Of particular interest is the first tract which deals with the magnet and its use in the treatment of different diseases; the second tract, on occult philosophy (including a chapter on imagination and one on possessed people) is of interest for medical psychology; the third one deals with the administration of medicines, and the last one with snakes and other poisonous animals.

        La Descrittione Della Prima Parte dell&#39;Asia, Il Disegno della Seconda Parte dell&#39;Asia, Il Disegno della Terza Parte dell&#39;Asia

      1570. THE BEST SIXTEENTH CENTURY MAPS OF ASIA Copper-plate engravings: each approx: 21" x 30" Venice: 1570 References: David Woodward, The Maps and Prints of Paolo Forlani (Chicago, 1990), 36; Robert W. Karrow, Mapmakers of the Sixteenth Century and Their Maps (Chicago, 1993), 30/85.2, 30/91.1, 30/92.1. Giacomo Gastaldi was the most celebrated Italian cartographer of the sixteenth century. He was also one of the first true professionals in that field in the sense that - unlike most contemporary cartographers who frequently filled multiple roles, acting as publishers and/or engravers - Gastaldi specialized in the drafting and design of maps, only rarely becoming involved in the technical aspects of their commercial distribution. As official cosmographer to the Venetian Republic, moreover, Gastaldi had access to the most up-to-date geographical information in compiling his maps, and many of them represent the most accurate renderings of their time. Such is the case with his landmark maps of Asia, which were printed as three separate but complementary "parts." Part one of the three Gastaldi maps of Asia was published in 1559 and covered the geographical area of Turkey and the Middle East. Only two years later Lafreri published his version of the map and in 1570 the Venetian engraver Girolamo Olgiato produced a very close copy of the Lafreri edition. It can really only be distinguished by the addition of Olgiato&#39;s imprint and the removal of Lafreri&#39;s. After completing the large-scale map of Southeastern Europe, Gastaldi, once again, returned to work on his mapping of Asia. The second and third parts were published in 1561. Part two covers the modern geographical areas of Egypt, Ethiopia, Somalia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, part of Iraq and Iran, Pakistan and the west coast of India. Gastaldi&#39;s part three of Asia was published in 1561, at the same time as part two, and like his other maps proved to be extremely influential to later depictions of the continent. The published travels of Marco Polo, that had appeared in Ramusio&#39;s Navigationi et viaggi (see no. 52), governed Gastaldi&#39;s rendering and the geography of this map is considered to be far superior to all previous maps of Asia. In 1570 Girolamo Olgiato published a reengraving of this map and incorporated the additions that had been made in Forlani&#39;s 1565 edition. The Philippine Islands are now visible in their entirety. The map covers the geographical area of India to Japan and China to the East India Islands.. Book.

        Memoires du voiage de Constantinople de Jacques de Bracle seigneur de Bassecourt. Manuscrit du XVIe siecle.

      No place, c. 1570.. 4to (210 x 135 mm). French manuscript on paper. 90 ff. Flemish Bastarda in black ink, 26 lines. Bound with 16 strictly contemporary specimens of Turkish marbled paper, a series of 28 watercolours, heightened in gilt and two extensive, early 19th century manuscript additions (complete transcript of the the travelogue and a biography of the author). Slightly later vellum with ms. title.. Unique, fascinating and unpublished manuscript containing the account of a diplomatic journey to the Ottoman Empire in 1570. Braeckle (1540-71), a Flemish physician, "assisted Charles Rym Baron de Bellem, Ambassador of Maximilian II in Constantinople, probably as a secretary. He wrote an account of his journey, which contains interesting details about the places he visited, the manners and customs of the inhabitants, incidents, etc." (Aug. Vander Meersch, in: Belgian National Biography II, 903). Leaving Prague on 13 March 1570, the mission passed through Vienna and then Hungary and Czechoslovakia before entering Ottoman territory, visiting the mosques and caravanserais of Sokollu Mehmed Pasha (c. 1505-79), Grand Vizier of Sultan Selim II (1524-74) who ruled the Turks at the time of Rym's and Braeckle's journey. Their stay in Constantinople lasted from 31 May to 12 August 1570, permitting the author to describe several monuments and works of art. During the journey back they travelled through Bulgaria, Serbia (they were held in Belgrade for nearly a month), and Hungary. The mission ended with their return to Germany on 23 October 1570. Jacques de Braeckle died shortly afterwards, in 1571. - The ms. is accompanied by a beautiful set of 28 original watercolours heightened in gilt. Showing Turkish people in traditional costumes, such illustrations were usually fashioned for sale to travellers in Constantinople or passed on to western merchants. However, as the present set includes the caravanserai of the diplomatic legation, it is extremely likely that these were created with the sole purpose of illustrating the diplomatic mission of Charles Rym, described within the present manuscript. The figures are captioned next to the subjects (16th century Italian script in black ink), indicating that the legends were recorded after the plates were collated and sewn together, or that they were included in books before insertion into the present volume. Among the illustrations are the caravanserai of the ambassadors to Constantinople, Sultan Selim II, the Mufti, costumes of Ottoman dignitaries and the military, a Persian, a Moor of Barbary, a lady in burqa, a Bulgarian, a giraffe, etc. The author of the Italian captions may have been the ambassador Edoardo Provisionali: he was responsible for several diplomatic missions and is known to have appreciated the Ottoman culture; furthermore, de Braeckle left Constantinople in his company (cf. Yerasimos). The manuscript is also bound with 16 remarkable specimens of 16th c. Turkish paper (title in French in pen on the first sheet: "papier de Turquie"). At the beginning of the volume is a transcription, calligraphed in an elegant French cursive of the early 19th century (18 unnumbered ff., black ink, 21 lines per page). The volume ends with a short biography of the author (2 pp., black ink, with the arms of de Braeckle). Yerasimos provides a detailed chronology of the journey, listing the major cities visited as well as monuments and curiosities noted by the travellers. - Only three manuscript copies of the present travelogue are recorded, mostly restricted to family use: two copies are in the National Archives of Belgium in Brussels (Fonds 692 Lalang, 8f., cf. Yerasimos); a third copy is bound in a miscellany and kept at the communal Archives of Ghent. - Binding rubbed, spine detached, in excellent condition internally. - Stephane Yerasimos, Les Voyageurs dans l'Empire Ottoman (XIVe-XVIe siecles), Ankara, 1991, pp. 286f.

        Posliednee puteshestvie okolo svieta Kapitana Kuka s obstoiatel'stvami o ego zhizni i smerti ...St Petersburg, P.B. [= Peter Bogdanovich], 1788. 8vo. Contemporary sprinkled calf, decorated endpapers block-printed in red and green paste.

      Beddie 1570; Forbes 154; Howes 11435; Strathern, Navigations 631 (vii); cf. Holmes 40 (first German ed.); Kroepelien (1st and 3rd Russian eds). Extremely rare second Russian edition, revised and augmented, of Heinrich Zimmermann's valuable account of Cook's third and final voyage, with a description of Cook's death at Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii. Zimmermann's account is followed by articles on Tahiti, a life of James Cook, and an essay on America in general, abridged from the Akademicheskiia izviestiia for 1781 and not included in the first Russian edition of 1786. Though Cook famously discovered Hawaii during his third voyage, Russian interest centred on his explorations of the American Northwest coast, where Russian fur traders had tried to establish permanent posts since the 1770's. Indeed, the first permanent Russian settlement was established only four years prior to the present publication.Zimmermann's account was first published in Germany in 1781; it was the earliest account of Cook's final voyage to appear on the continent. It has an "ingenuousness and charm which differentiates it from the other accounts. His appreciation of Cook's character deserves to rank with that of Samwell" (Holmes). Foot of title-page with owner's entry (in Russian), back of title-page with stamp of the Russian book collector B.A. Êðûëîâà, last page and flyleaf with owner's stamps. Inner front hinge cracked, some smudges, binding chafed, spine damaged at head and foot, some wormholes. Overall a very good copy of an extremely rare Russian edition of Zimmerman's account.

Foebadi, sive Foebadii liber contra Arianos. Quae Athanasii, Anastasii & Cyrilli sunt, & quae Foebadii, nunc primum eduntur.

      N.pl. (Geneva), excudebat Henricus Stephanus, 1570.. 8vo. (14),24;431 p. 18th century vellum 17.5 cm (Ref: Hoffmann I, 387; Renouard, Estienne p. 133; Graesse I,243; Adams A 2091; Butterweck, Athanasius Bibliographie, p. 64/65; Dibdin p. 196: scarce and estimable) (Details: Two morocco letterpieces on spine; borders of covers gilt; marbled endpapers, red edges; nice copy) (Condition: Lacking the last blank in the first preliminary gathering; the Opusculum of Foebadius is not bound at the end, but immediately after the praefatio) (Note: 'Editiones principes'. Renouard tells that the Manuscript of the Athanasius was bought in Geneva by Henri Estienne from a Greek visitor, and that the other works were found in the library of Germain Colladon by P. Pithou, and were handed over to Estienne. Henri Estienne, 1528-1598, the scholar/publisher who ruined himself over the publication of the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae (1572), and his Plato (1578). Theodorus Beza, 1519-1605, a Calvinist theologian who became for nine years professor of Greek at Lausanne. He is best known for his Latin translation of the New Testament, his critical Greek edition of the New Testament, and for being the founder of the University of Geneva. Athanasius, 295-373 AD, is the most famous of the Alexandrian bishops, and adversary of Arian. Because of his struggle with the Arians Athanasius was banished for 17 years. In his works he fiercely defends the dogmata of the church against heretics like Arian) (Collation: §8 (minus §8) a8 b4 A - 2C8 2D - 2E4) (Photographs on request).

        Anitii Manlii Severini Boethi Inter Latinos Aristotelis Interpretes et Aetate Primi, et Doctrina Praecipui Dialectica

      4to. Limp vellum wrappers. 712pp (four pages per leaf, hence approximately 178pp). Good plus overall. Outer wrappers rather soiled, but sound; two-line contemporary ink ownership inscription near bottom of title page; preliminary leaves age toned and occasional sporatic age toning throughout text; occasional light foxing. Early (not first) printing of this oft-reprinted text, a tight and attractive copy. Roman philosopher Boethius (ca. 480-524) wrote his most famous work, "The Consolation of Philosophy," while in prison in Pavia for conspiring against his former friend Theodoric, ruler of Rome, who named Boethius consul (510) and head of government and court services (520); in 524 he was executed without trial. Boethius&#39;s translations and commentaries on the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle are credited with introducing him to the Western world. A millennium later, early printed versions such as this 1570 text reintroduced Aristotle to a far broader Western audience.

        I quattro libri dell&#39; architettura

      Venice: Domenico de' Franceschi, 1570. Venice: Domenico de&#39; Franceschi,, 1570. Folio (296 x 206 mm). Late eighteenth-century Italian calf, gilt floral ornaments in spine compartments, marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges. Four books in one volume. 164 leaves. Profusely illustrated with 217 woodcuts throughout the four books, of which 156 are full-page (of these 84 are printed as plates, recto and verso of 42 leaves). Provenance: ownership circular stamp at foot of first title: "Remember / G.H." with profile of unicorn. Without the blank leaves at the end of books two and four, some finger soiling to margins, slight wear to extremities of binding, otherwise, an outstanding copy; very fresh, tall and clean, with a few scattered minor spots. First edition of the four books together, a work of superlative importance in the history of architecture. "Palladio&#39;s lasting influence on architectural style in many parts of the world was exercised less through his actual buildings than through his textbook. Palladio left no immediate successors; his book exerted a powerful influence on contemporary architecture and classical ideals until the end of the eighteenth century" (Printing and the Mind of Man pp. 55-6). The influence which this work had on 18th-century architecture cannot be over-emphasized. "Palladio&#39;s Quattro Libri (Venice, 1570) is the influential architectural testament in which he set out his formulae for the orders, for room sizes, for stairs and for the design of detail. In the Fourth book he published restorations of the Roman temples which he had studied most closely and, in the Second and Third books (as no architect had done until then), offered a sort of retrospective exhibition of his own designs for palaces, villas, public buildings and bridges. Concise and clear in its language, effective in its communication of complex information through the coordination of plates and texts, the Quattro Libri represents the most effective illustrated architectural publication up to that time. The intelligence and clarity of the &#39;interface&#39; which Palladio offers to his readers can be seen if one compares it to Serlio&#39;s architectural books which started to appear in 1537. Whereas Serlio does not inscribe dimensions on the plates but laboriously rehearses them in the small print of his text, Palladio frees the text of this encumbrance and places the measurements directly on the plans and elevations&#133; It was therefore not only Palladio&#39;s architecture, with its rational basis, its clear grammar, and its bias towards domestic projects, but the effectiveness of his book as a means of communication that led to the immense influence of Palladio on the development of architecture in northern Europe, and later in North America" (Guido Beltramini, Andrea Palladio: The Complete Illustrated Works, p. 9). A very pleasing copy in an Italian binding of the kind a young English milord might pick up on his Grand Tour.

        Genialium dierum libri sex, varia ac recondita eruditione referti: nunc postremum infinitis mendis quibus antea squallebat liber pulcherrimus, quanta fieri potuit diligentia perpurgati atque in pristinum nitorem restituti.

      Paris, Apud Michaelem Sonnium, sub scuto Basiliensi, via Iacobaea, 1570.. Klein-Oktav. Ttlbl.m.Druckersignet, (145), 384 gezählte Blätter. Zeitgenössischer Ledereinband auf 5 Bünde geheftet. Mit Goldprägung Am Buchrücken etwas beschädigt. Kann auf Anfrage vom Buchbinder ausgebessert werden. Klassische Schrift der Rückbesinnung auf die Antike Welt unter den Juristen!. Alexander d'Alessandro (1461-1523), ein Neapolitanischer Rechtsgelehrter, beschäftigte sich intensiv mit dem Studium der klassischen Sprachen und Kultur der alten Griechen und Römer. Sein hochgebildetes, brillant verfasstes Buch "dies geniales" war eigentlich die Gründungsschrift der humanistischen Jurisprudenz, auch wenn sie sich nur am Rande mit dem Recht befasste. Das Werk zeigt den hohen Bildungsanspruch, den die Juristen seit dieser Zeit in Anspruch nahmen und über lange Zeit auch verwirklichten. Die "die geniales" gehörten zum Bildungsgut jedes Juristen des 16. bis 18. Jahrhunderts. Auch der große Alciat berichtet in seinen Briefen über den großen Eindruck, den das Werk, das erstmals im Jahre 1522 erschienen ist, auf ihn gemacht hat. Das Buch ist eine wahre Schatzkammer der antiken Welt, ein Klassiker der humanistischen Jurisprudenz.
