        Portrait, Halbfigur, halblinks, ein Swchert fassend umher ovaler Rahmen mit Inschrift Theophra. Paracels Aureolus Philipp. Umher manieristischer Blumenornament, in den Zwickeln Sphinxen und Faune.

      - Monogrammist BR (J.Th. de Bry), Kupferstich aus J.J.Boissard, Icones virorum illustrium, Frankfurt 1597-99, Kupferstich, 142 x 115 auf 201 x 167 mm; sehr frischer Abzug. Unter dem Oval in Latein: Hier ist der, dem das Geheimnis der großen Welt bekannt war, und der sich mit der Kunst des Verstandes den Verstand geben konnte. - Die Granatäpfel in den Händen der Faune symbolisieren die verbindung des Bösen mit dem Guten. - Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Rombastus Paracelsus ab Hohenbeim, "auch "Helvetius Eremita" genannt, war 1491 in einem Hause nahe an der über die Sihl führenden Teufelsbrücke, eine Stunde weit von dem berühmten Wallfahrtsorte Maria Einsiedeln (Canton Schwyz), geboren. Sein Vater, der Arzt Wilhelm ab Hohenheim, stammte aus der alten und berühmten schwäbischen Adelsfamilie der Bombaste, die sich von dem adeligen Schloss Hohenheim, dem nachmaligen Esslinger Hof, bei dem Dorfe Pfänningen bei Stuttgart "Bombaste von Hohenheim" nannten. 1502 siedelte er mit seinem Vater nach Villach in Kärnten über, wo letzterer 1534 starb. Er bezog 1506 die Universität zu Basel, gab sich hier besonders chemischen Studien hin, lebte längere Zeit bei dem als Alchemist bekannten TRITHEMIUS, machte dann grössere Reisen durch Europa, hielt sich an verschiedenen Universitäten Studien halber auf und genoss bereits um 1527 wegen seiner Kenntnisse einen solchen Ruf, dass er auf des bekannten Kirchenvaters, seines Landsmannes Oekolampadius Empfehlung als Nachfolger von COPUS 1527 zum Stadtarzt von Basel ernannt wurde. In dieser Eigenschaft trat er in ebenso abenteuerlicher, wie verletzender Weise auf, indem er als Zeichen seiner Verachtung der arabischen Medicin alle Werke des AVICENNA auf öffentlichem Markt verbrannte. Noch mehr brachte er seine Collegen gegen sich auf, als er es wagte, sich der deutschen Sprache zu bedienen. Es kam schliesslich zu völligem Zerwürfniss, als er auf das schmutzige geschäftliehe Treiben der im Bunde mit den Apothekern stehenden Aerzte aufmerksam und demselben ein Ende machte. Zuletzt zerfiel er auch noch mit den Behörden; er liess aus Aerger darüber dieselben in Pamphleten angreifen, musste aber in Folge dessen heimlich aus Basel entweichen und führte nun ein abenteuerliches Wanderleben , das ihn durch den Elsass, die Schweiz, Deutschland und bis an die entferntesten Punkte Europas, selbst bis nach Asien hinein verschlug, wobei er von einer grossen Zahl von Schülern begleitet war, meistens Vagabunden, die nur Stein der Weisen kennen lernen wollten und PARACELSUS für den Besitzer desselben hielten. Allmälig verbreitete sich sein Name und sein Ruhm über ganz Europa. Er wurde 1640 nach Salzburg berufen, lebte aber hier nur noch 1 Jahr und starb daselbst 24 Sept. 1541. - - PARACELSUS ist jedenfalls für die mystische Richtung der Medicin im 16. Jahrhundert die einflussreichste Persönlichkeit gewesen. Es ist über ihn sehr viel gedacht und geschrieben worden. Von der einen Seite ist er als Reformator, Vater der Heilkunde, Begründer der neuen Richtung in der Medicin gepriesen und in den Himmel erhoben, von der anderen als ein Mystiker, Schwärmer, Betrüger, Trunkenbold Gaukler bezeichnet worden. Dieser Widerspruch löst sich, wenn man auf die Quellen zurückgeht, aus denen er sich ergeben hat. Nachgewiesenermassen ist der bei Weitem grösste Theil aller Schriften, die unter seinem Namen erschienen sind untergeschoben und von den übrigen ist es höchst fraglich, wieviel davon ihm angehört und wieviel von seinen Freunden und Feinden hineingearbeitet worden ist. Seine Freunde glaubten, seine Lehre gar nicht dunkel genug darstellen zu können und seine Feinde, die ihn zu verunglimpfen bestrebt waren, scheuten sich nicht, in seine Schriften einen Wust von Unsinn hineinzutragen. Selbst die von seinen Gegnern gegen ihn erhobenen Angriffe sind darin als sein eigenes Werk aufgeführt. - Als Quelle des Wissens bezeichnete PARACELSUS die Erfahrung, aber nicht die auf dem Wege einer rationellen inductiven Forschung gewonnene .

        Versos espirituales, que tratan de la conversion del pecador, menosprecio del mundo. Y vida de Nuestro Señor con unas sucintas declaraciones sobre algunos passos del libro.

      Miguel Serrano de vArgas, 1597 (Al fín: 1596), Cuenca: - 20 hojas, 172 folios, 3 hojas. Plena piel con ruedas doradas en cantos y contracantos firmada Brugalla 1941. Cortes dorados. Suavemente lavado. Magnífico ejemplar aunque algo justo de márgenes afectando apenas en tres hojas alguna letra de las postillas. Palau 80159. Paloma Alfaro Torres, La imprenta en Cuenca (1528 - 1679), 43. Primera edición.La obra de Pedro de Enzinas es un recorrido por la historia de la poesia religiosa desde los griegos y romanos hasta la lengua romance, con especial mención de los poetas de orígen español. Al lado de los poemas, el autor realiza numerosas anotaciones con comentarios de tematica religiosa, referencias a la Biblia, significados alegóricos de ciertas imágenes como el pecado, el infierno y el demonio, etc. Por otra parte, explicita detalles sobre la tradición pagana y la mitología y se interesa por determinados temas como la astrología, la geografía o cuestiones de filosofia natural, citando a Plinio, Dioscórides o Aristóteles. Los Versos espirituales se imprimieron en Cuenca en 1597, ahora bien la tasa y la fe de erratas van firmadas ese mismo año, pero los correspondientes privilegios y las aprobaciones datan de 1595. En ese año o muy poco después debió de fallecer Enzinas, puesto que el librero, en una epístola dedicatoria, le comunica al corregidor de Cuenca y Huete que hace más de un año hizo imprimir el libro y que por la muerte del dominico ha quedado huérfano. Por lo tanto, le debió de sobrevenir la muerte en el proceso de publicación, de la cual, finalmente, se encargarían sus hermanos religiosos. Por eso, los doce sonetos laudatorios, más un epigrama en latín del Dr. Luis Termiño, informan del contexto conquense y dominico del poeta. En los posliminares, un soneto en italiano de Benedetto Fabiani y otro acróstico de Joan de Cisneros. Para los preliminares el autor redactó una Dedicatoria a la condesa de Saldaña, heredera del ducado del Infantado. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

John Skene (c. 1540–1617) had been appointed to a commission in 1592 to review and print acts of parliament and other laws, which resulted in the present work, containing post-1424 statutes. Appended to it is De verborum significatione, with separate title page also dated 1597, the first published dictionary of Scots law. The present volume is expanded by the insertion – after the fifteenth parliament of James VI (1597) and before "Ane table of the principall maters conteined in this buik" – of the Scottish parliaments of James VI to 1621. Skene was knighted in 1604 and was appointed a commissioner for negotiating the proposed union with England. His compilation is eagerly sought after by golf collectors, as it includes several references to the game, from James II's banning of it (along with football) in 1457 as an unwelcome distraction to learning archery, the first written record of golf.

A work of great authority, this popular dictionary was first published in 1559. It went through more than twenty-five editions, with several variations in content, during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. All editions have two principal parts: the fifteenth-century Vocabularius attributed to Jacobus of Erfurt and Nebrija's Lexicon Iuris Civilis. It is a curious hybrid of late-medieval and renaissance scholarship; the former work is a typical scholastic compilation, the latter is a humanistic work grounded in philology and historical commentary. Nebrija was an important Spanish scholar and educator. Educated at the universities of Salamanca and Bologna, he read widely in law, medicine and theology. His philological work, which included the first Spanish grammar and dictionary, led to the standardization of the language. In 1502 he was a member of a group of scholars gathered by Cardinal Ximenes de Cisneros at Alcala to produce the Complutensian Polyglot Bible.

      Salamanticae, apud Ioannem & Andream Renaut fratres (Salamanca, Renaut), 1597.. [Titelblatt in rot/schwarz gedruckt mit großen Holzschnittvignette auf beiden Titeln] [8], 698 [66]; S. [2] 728, [52] S. mit zahlreichen Zierstücken und Initialen. Folio, flexibler Ganzpergamenteinband der Zeit. (Buchblöcke gelöst). Erste und sehr seltene Ausgabe des Hauptwerkes des, nach Thomas von Aquin, bedeutensten Theologen und Philosophen der Scholastik, dem Jesuiten Francisco Suarez (5. Januar 1548 - 25 September 1617) genannt : "Doctor Eximius et Pius." Der Spätscholastiker Suarez hat als Lehrer und Schriftsteller vor allem die Aristotelische Philosophie interpretiert und kommentiert. Seine " Metaphysischen Disputationen" mit Index zur Metaphysik des Aristotels wurden auch von den Protestanten als Lehrbuch verwendet.(...) Sie sind zu einer Hauptquelle für die Kenntnis scholastischer Philosophie bis in die Gegegnwart hinein geworden; aus ihnen hat unter anderem Leibniz geschöpft." (Ziegenfuss, II, 662 ff.) Die klassische spanische Bindung gelöst, aber wohlerhalten.

Crahay, pp. 291-93: "L'ouvrage se présente comme un dialogue entre Theorus, celui qui observe et contemple, et Mystagogus, l'initiateur, celui qui guide. vers le sens caché des choses. Inspiré de la Bible, du néo-platonisme et de la kabbale, le Theatrum est une oeuvre difficile.qui a manifestement rebuté la plupart des commentateurs."
