1562 Aristotle Animals Zoology w/ Averroes Comments DREAMS Manuscript Binding
Venetiis, apud haeredes Lucaeantonii Iuntae, Anno Domini. MDLXII. (1562). First edition. - 1562 Aristotle Animals Zoology w/ Averroes Comments DREAMS Manuscript Binding “The pioneering work on zoology!” This book, the first of six volumes of the complete works of Aristotle, is an incredible tome on animals. This book (part 2 of vol. 6) is complete in itself and includes commentary by Averroes. Averroes, a 12th-century was known for his commentary on Islamic philosophy and theology, but he gained his eternal fame in this commentary on Aristotle. He is quoted in mentioning Giraffe’s and other large animals in the gardens of kings. This commentary is important because it was the foundation for the revival of Aristotle in the 13th-century, which prior to Averroes, was all but lost. This “History of Animals” is an accurate eye-witness work on marine-biology particularly on the island of Lesbos – Aristotle discusses the life of octopus, dogfish, catfish, anatomy and behaviors of animals, offspring and reproduction, and more! In addition to Aristotle on animals, this book includes commentary on sleep, divination, dreams and dream interpretation, the mind and memory, and Theodore Gaza’s interpretation of animal movement.
