Item Description: Venice, Aldus Manutius, 1 November 1495 - June 1498. With numerous woodcut floral and interlaced head-pieces and initials, large schematic woodcut diagram. 30 lines. Greek type (with some Roman). Folio (c. 310 x 210 mm). Late 19th- or early -20th century full calf. From the library of Walter Ashburner Florence (1864-1936), with his stamp mostly on title or on last leaf. Venice, Aldus Manutius, 1 November 1495 - June 1498, First edition of one of the greatest books ever printed, very scarce. These five volumes include all the then-known works attributed to Aristotle (384-322 B.C.), together with other texts associated with the Aristotelian corpus and including text of his most outstanding pupil Theophrastus. Among Aristotle's works the following are included: Part 1 (Organon): Porphyrius, Universalia; Categories; Hermeneutics; Prior Analytics; Posterior Analytics; Topics, Sophistici Elenchi, etc. 234 leaves. 1 November 1495. Part 2 (Natural Philosophy): Galen, Introduction to philosophy, (Physics); De caelo, De generatione et corruptione, (Meterology); Philon, De mondo; Theophrastus, De signis acquarum et ventorum (Wind, fire, and stones); De coelo; De mundo, etc. 300 leaves. February 1497. Part 3 (Natural Philosophy): 19 treatises by Aristotle, De historia animalium; De partibus animalium, De anima; De sensu et sensato; De motu animalium; De generatione animalium; De respiratione; De animalium incessu; De coloribus; 5 treatises by Theophratus, etc. 468 leaves. 29 January 1497. Part 4 (Natural Philosophy) imperfect (lacking only Theophrastus' texts on botany) Aphrodisiensis, Problems; Aristotle, Mechanics; Metaphysics, etc. and Theophrastus, Metaphysics. 228 to 520 leaves. 1 June 1497. Part 5 (Moral Philosophy): Nicomachus, Ethics; Politics; Economics; Magna Moralia; Eudemian, Ethics, etc. 330 leaves. June 1498. A very exquisite set of Aldus' monumental edition of Aristotle's works, the first major Greek text to be re-introduced to the Western world by the invention of the printing-press. It was the most ambitious printing project of the fifteenth century and Aldus's first major objective in his publishing programme. His task was enormous. More serious than the typographical difficulty was the lack of demand for Greek in sufficient quantity to make an edition pay. Knowledge of Greek was still restricted, and Latin translations could be printed instead in editions large enough to be profitable. The task of an editor at this date was also difficult. Manuscripts had to be obtained to serve as copy for typesetters, and if, as often happened, the text was corrupt, the editor might attempt either to amend it or find better manuscripts. Aldus's preface gives some indication of these hardships. In the introduction to one of the volumes of the Aristotle he tells us that in the whole of Italy he had been able to find only one copy of Theophrastus. Before the Aldine press was set up, the total number of volumes printed in Greek was scarcely more than a dozen, several of them grammars. For the quality as much as the quantity of his output, Aldus stands as the greatest scholar-publisher in printing history. The Aldine edition of Aristotle determined the text of these two authors until the nineteenth century, altough a Greek Opera edited by Erasmus was printed in Basel in 1531. The first two Aldine Greek types (146 and 114 mm), both represented here, were cut by Francesco Griffo and were apparently modelled on the hand of Immanuel Rhusotas; many accents were cast separately and set through vertical kerning (see N. Barker, Aldus Manutius and the Development of Greek Script and Type in the 15th Century). This Aldine Aristotle was, in terms of scholary enterprise and vision, the greatest printing project of its century, and is complete rarely found on the market, since Aldus sold the books also separately. The complete Freilich copy at the 2001 Sotheby's auction, not in a fine condition, brought USD 750'000 (or EUR 620'000 or CHF 950'000). The present set has been in a private library for many de.

Item Description: Venice, Andreas Torresanus, de Asula, & Bartholomaeus de Blavis, de Alexandria, for Johannes de Colonia, 1 and 3 Feb. 1483., 1483. Tall folio (250 x 370 mm). 2 pts. (out of 6) in 1 volume. 118 ff. (a-b6, c4, d10, e6, f10, g-k6, l8, m6, n8, o-p6, q10, [*]8: q10 blank; A-C6, CC8, D-Q6: Q6 blank). With woodcut device of Johannes de Colonia, printed in red, at the end of both volumes. Late 16th-century vellum on four raised double bands. Fine incunabular edition of Aristotle's Organon and practical philosophy, including the groundbreaking commentary of Averroes. The volume contains the two parts of the six-part set of Aristotle's Works which Torresanus and de Blavis printed for Johannes de Colonia (the other four parts appeared without his woodcut device). Simultaneously, the two printers produced a small folio edition (Goff A-963; GW 2338) comprising only these present two parts (same dates and same composition, but wrapped for 50 rather than 66 lines, and thus with different page count due to reduced printing space). - Averroes, the outstanding Arab philosopher and physician of his time, is "memorable chiefly for his interpretation of Aristotle which developed into the complete philosophical system of Averroism. The central feature of this was a theory that the world is eternal, not a creation ex nihilo, but actuated by a creative power continuously at work [.] Averroism was essentially an attempt to reconcile reason and philosophy with faith and religion. Averroes was not unique in this, but he expressed it perhaps more intelligently and forcefully than others [.] Averroism deeply influenced both Christian and Jewish thought [.] and initiated the Schoolmen into the knowledge of Aristotle. The earliest editions of Aristotle were published with Averroes's commentaries (both text and commentary were Latin translations, the latter partly from the Arabic, partly from Hebrew versions) in which, and in various tracts, Averroism was adumbrated" (PMM 24). - Contains: Pt. 1) Porphyrius's Isagoge in Aristotelis Praedicamenta; Praedicamenta, De interpretatione, Analytica priora, Topica, Sophistici elenchi (tr. by Boethius); Analytica posteriora (tr. by Jacobus Veneticus). Pt. 2) Ethica ad Nicomachum (tr. by Robertus Grosseteste); Politica (tr. by Guilelmus de Moerbeka); Oeconomica (tr. by Durandus de Alvernia). - Binding rubbed and bumped at extremeties. Some waterstaining to margins; occasional slight edge defects and insignificant worming to first and final pages. From the library of the Florentine humanist scholar Giovanni Battista Ubaldini (fl. 1580), author of "Istoria della casa de gli Ubaldini" (Florence, Sermartelli, 1588), probably bound for him (his autograph table of contents and ownership on flyleaf). Extremely rare on the market: according to ABPC, no complete copies or any parts of copies have appeared at auction since at least 1975. Nearly all copies listed in ISTC are individual parts or incomplete. HC 1660*. Goff A-962. BSB-Ink A-701. GW 2337. Proctor 4701. Cf. PMM 24. Bookseller Inventory # 30909

Item Description: Venice, Andrea de Asula, 1483. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. FIRST EDITION thus. Folio, 159 ex 160 unnumbered ll. AA-TT8 UU7 (lacking final blank). Double column, gothic letter in two sizes, printed paragraph numbers, initial spaces blank. Systematic scholarly marginalia in contemporary and C16th hands, neat and legible, intermittently throughout. A few little wormholes, mostly marginal, to final gatherings, lamp oil splash to blank fore edge of a dozen ll., an exceptional, thick paper copy, clean, well-margined and unrestored, in 16th century Viennese calf over wooden boards, outer and inner compartments with multi blind ruled borders, 4 original brass bosses to corners of latter on each cover, matching central boss within, Spine with blind ornament to seven compartments, joints repaired, covers a bit wormed and scratched, remains of clasps, a tall and handsome volume beautifully proportioned and printed. Excellent early edition of Aristotle's Physics in this Latin translation with the commentary of Ibn Rushd, otherwise known as Averroes of Cordoba, and edited by Nicoletus Vernia. It comprises one of a series of Aristotelian texts that were produced by Andreas Tornesanus and Bartholomaeus de Blavis between 1 February and 25 October 1483. The translation is anonymous but William Moerke and Michael Scotus were responsible for the other medico-scientific Latin versions in the series. Aristotle's Physics is a fundamental text of Western natural philosophy. In it, or rather them, what has come down to us is probably a fairly random collection of lecture notes, rather than a text polished for publication, Aristotle established the general principles that govern all natural bodies, animate and inanimate, celestial and terrestrial, including all motion, causation, qualitative and quantitative change, creation and extinction. Physics in the Aristotelian sense covers almost all there is to know about the material world - including those forces which shape it that are not themselves material. Heidegger wrote of it "This book determines the warp and woof of the whole of Western thinking.Without Aristotle's Physics there would have been no Galileo." Ibn Rushd or Averroes came from an illustrious Cordoban family and was the greatest Muslim philosopher of the West and one of the greatest of medieval times, as well as a physician and astronomer. For his three remarkable commentaries on Aristotle (that on zoology is now absolutely lost) he became known simply as 'The Commentator' or 'Gran Comento' as Dante calls him in Inferno IV 144. English versions were still being published in the 20th century. The editor Vernia (1420 - 1499) was one of the leading Aristotelians of the C16th and himself a significant philosopher - his contemporaries called him Nicoletus philosophus celeberrimus; he was also a physician and astrologer. He taught philosophy at the University of Padua from 1465 almost to his death and was succeeded by Pomponazzi, like Nifo, one of his pupils. Titles from this series of publications appear either individually or together and in any combination, they were available for purchase that way.

Item Description: 1606. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 4to pp 374 (recte 373), [49], [528], [2, blank], [80, including several blank leaves], manuscript in ink on laid paper (hand and star watermark), ruled in red throughout; initial leaf with restorations resulting in some loss of text, a few marginal wormholes, pp. 169/70 in the first part loosened, traces of humidity, browning or spotting in places; A good copy in very handsome Spanish contemporary calf, spine with three raised bands, highly ornamented in gilt with falling feathers, pentagrams and corner fleurons, large gilt centre-pieces with initials S G, gauffered edges gilt, ms vellum stubbs; extremities a little worn; beginning and end of the volume with ownership inscriptions by one Louis-Joseph Riviere fils, dated 1783, as a gift from one M Larendal. This beautifully produced and bound manuscript contains an apparently unpublished commentary of the Organon, the fundamental text on logic in the Western World. It was probably conceived under the influence of the Second School of Salamanca, a philosophical and theological school of neo-scholastic and and Aristotelian teaching led by Jesuits from Coimbra, the Conimbricenses. Among the teachers who lectured on Aristotle were most prominently Luis de Molina (1535-1600) and Francisco Suárez (1548-1617), whose philosophy of law influenced Grotius, Leibniz, and precursors of the social contract theory. This impressively detailed commentary deals chapter-by-chapter with Aristotle’s logic, often elucidating difficult passages by examples and interpretations. The second part with over 500 pages is an interpretation of Aristotle’s Posterior Analytics. The final part of the volume is headed Explicatio thesium logicarum and dated 1606. The ornamental title-page bears the initials I. T. and the motto Absurdum est simul sciam & modum sciendi quaerere (from Aristotle’s Metaphysics). The extensive text is probably one of the many Aristotle interpretations dictated to students and initially not intended for publication. Later, many of these commentaries on other Aristotelian texts, based on the Salamanca lectures, were officially published by the Jesuit Order. The remarkable binding combines conventional decorative motifs with Rosicrucian symbolism and figurative corner pieces apparently depicting American Indians. Bookseller Inventory # 786a

Item Description: London: Printed by Adam Islip, 1598., 1598. folio. pp. 15 p.l., 393, [5]. lacks first & last blanks. woodcut printer’s device on title. woodcut ornaments & initials. new half calf over 18th century marbled bds. (lower corner of Ffiiii torn away with loss of several letters of text, sidenotes shaved on Hvi, staining to lower inner margins in last gatherings, a few leaves browned and/or foxed, ink notation & small hole in blank portion of title). First Edition of the English Translation of Aristotle’s Politics in which he discusses the theory of constitutions, oligarchy, democracy, commonwealth, and tyranny, the various powers of government, revolution and the means of preserving states, the different offices of the state, and the right form of constitution. "Aristotle is not only one of the great classical philosophers, the master of every branch of ancient knowledge: his method still underlies all modern thinking." (PMM) The Politics may be compared with Adam Smith’s Wealth of Nations for its union of analytic theory with knowledge of historical and contemporary data. Aristotle had prepared descriptions of one hundred and fifty-eight ‘polities’ or constitutions (all now lost except one, the Constitution of Athens ) Aristotle’s political principles have entered into the subsequent course of social thought. He taught that the state was natural and that man was naturally a political being. He taught that law was sovereign and that the magistrates were servants of the laws; he distinguished ‘normal’ forms of states from ‘perverted’ forms and taught succeeding ages the difference between monarchy and tyranny; he investigated the deserts and capacities of the people, and while he criticized democracy he argued non the less that the people, especially because of their capacity for collective judgment, should elect their officers and call them to account. These were not ignoble lessons; and the whole history of political theory to the close of the Middle Ages shows how steadily they were conned. St. Thomas Aquinas, Dante and Marsiglio of Padua were all pupils of Aristotle in politics; and if the school of natural rights and social contract introduced a new line of approach in the seventeenth century, it did not in all respects improve upon Aristotle and in some it simply continued his teaching."

The original Greek manuscripts were brought from Constantinople to Italy by Giovanni Aurispa in the early 15th century and translated into Latin by Theodore Gaza around 1450. The editio princeps of the Greek came out only in 1497, but Gaza's translation, edited by Giorgio Merula, was first published in 1483. Gaza, scholar, scribe and teacher from Thessaloniki, translated many works of Greek science, literature and theology into Latin. He was renowned for the style and accuracy of his translations. Contains the 3rd Latin (1st Aldine) edition of Theophrastus' work on systematic botany which was first published in Latin translation in 1483. "An observer and collector of botanical data rather than a profound theorizer, Theophrastus was handicapped by lack of scientific language. Yet his description of the formation of the plant in the seed, the earliest account known, was the best made for 2000 years; it demonstrated excellent observation" (Dibner). This edition additionally contains Latin-Greek and Greek-Latin glossaries of technical terms found in Aristotle. The first edition is quite rare on the market.

Item Description: Paris mostly, 1551. criblé initials, some staining and foxing, frequent subtantial marginal and interlinear manuscript annotations in an early hand, old inscription ‘Dalaret’ to first title-page (probably circa 1780), 4to, contemporary calf, boards bordered in blind with gilt corner-pieces and gilt central Mars and Lucretia tools, front board further lettered ‘A. BUXUS’ in gilt, spine divided by raised bands, small gilt flower tools in compartments, old repairs to head and tail of spine, leather stained and scratched, some old notes and inscriptions to endpapers, modern booklabel to front pastedown, good A sammelband - in an attractive contemporary binding - of early and rare editions of Joachim Perion’s Latin translations of individual works by Aristotle, comprising the six works on Logic that make up the Organon, plus Porphyrius’s ‘Isagoge’, or ‘introduction’ (translated by Perion as ‘Institutiones’). The number of similar titles and variant imprints makes it impossible to say with certainty that these are unrecorded full stop, but the printings found here are almost entirely unlisted in Worldcat (as detailed below); there was also a 1551 edition of Perion’s Aristotle in various parts published by Roigny, but with different titles, and also a 1551 Vascosanus edition, in octavo. Perion translated most of Aristotle’s works, and others not present here appeared under some of the same imprints (Worldcat does record in Columbia and Yale in a 1551 printing of the Nichomachean Ethics ‘apud viduam Mauricii a Porta’), but this volume forms the complete writings on logic, often known as the ‘Organon’. The contents are, in order:1. Porphyrii Institutiones ad Chrysaorium, Aristotelis Categoriae, Eiusdem de Interpretatione Liber. Ioachimo Perionio Benedictino Cormoeriaceno interprete. Quarta editio. Paris: Apud Thomam Richardum, 1551, ff. 18, 11, [10], 22. The ‘De Interpretatione’ has its own title-page dated 1551 but with imprint ‘Ex officina Viduae Mauricii a Porta’; the Categoriae does not have such a title-page present and so one may be lacking. We have not been able to trace any closely matching copy in Worldcat (or anywhere else) to compare against, although Yale holds a copy of the De Interpretatione dated 1551 with the imprint ‘Apud Thomam Richardum’ (also annotated - see Rosenthal, Printed Books with Manuscript Annotations, 34). Porphyrius’s work introduces concepts which are essential to the Catgories, and often served as a prologue to the Aristotelian corpus on logic as a whole, as here. 2. Aristotelis priorum Analyticorum libri II. Ioachimo Perionio Benedictino Cormoeriaceno interprete. Eiusdem Perionii observationes in eosdem Analyticos libros. Paris: Ex officina Viduae Mauricii a Porta, 1551, ff. 59, [1, blank]. No copy located in Worldcat.3. Aristotelis Posteriorum Analyticorum Libri II. Ioachimo Perionio Benedictino Cormoeriaceno interprete. Eiusdem Perionii observationes in eadem Posteriora Analytica. Paris: Ex officina Viduae Mauricii a Porta, 1551, ff. 40. No copy located in Worldcat. 4. Aristotelis Topicorum libri octo, Ioachimo Perionio Benedictino Cormoeriaceno interprete. Eiusdem Ioach. Perionii comentationes, in quibus Topica Ciceronis cum his Aristotelis coniungit, ut omnes quid Cicero in suis ab Aristotelie mutuatus sit intelligant. Editio secunda. Paris: Apud Ioannem Lodoicum Tiletanum, 1543, ff. [iv], 70, xxviii. Worldcat locates an edition of this title but apparently without imprint (though recording a colophon, as here, also giving the name of the printer), in Lyon only; the record does not mention the ‘Editio secunda’ and so this may be a different printing.5. Aristotelis de Reprehensionibus fallacibus et captiosis liber, Ioachimo Perionio Benedictino Cormoeriaceno interprete. Paris: Ex officina Viduae Mauricii a Porta, 1551, ff. 26, [7]. There may be a copy in Cambridge (described only as a Paris 1551 quarto); nothing else similar recorded in Worldcat.The inscription of Dalaret to the title-page may be in the same hand as tw.

Item Description: [Georgius Arrivabenus], Venice, 1490. [n.d. but c. 1490]. Known as the 'Parvi Flores' in manuscript form and the 'Auctoritates Aristotelis' (north of the Alps) or Propositiones Aristotelis (in Italy) in its printed form, this work, according to Jacqueline Hamesse's masterly monograph, was compiled by the Parisian Arts Faculty member Marsilio of Padua, around the year 1312 A.D. It is a collection of passages from the works of Aristotle, Plato, Seneca, and other classical and medieval philosophers, and was intended for use by teacher and student alike. Although it gave readers a quick and easy access to the teachings of great thinkers, one of its pitfalls was that its largely abridged contents failed to provide context and depth to the passages in question. One might argue that it was anthologies such as this that caused a general shallowing of medieval scholastic learning and created a need for the more robust and comprehensive learning introduced by the Renaissance. Indeed, this book went through some 40 editions between 1480 and 1522, only to abruptly cease from publication after that date. Hamesse traces some 27 editions of this work printed north of the Alps before 1500 and about seven Italian editions. Hamesse also categorizes the incunabula into distinct families and traces those families back to certain manuscripts in circulation during the Middle Ages, noting the variations between the them. Only four copies of this Venetian edition are located in American institutions. 4to (22cm). Signatures: a-e^(8) f^(4) (e3 signed "diii").44 leaves. Place of publication from colophon; imprint from Goff. Colophon reads: 'Auctoritates auree [et] propositiones diuine [quam] plurimorum philosophorum bene emendate finiunt. Uenetiis. Laus Deo.' In double columns in Gothic type. Capital spaces, most with guide letters. Rebound in early limp vellum, some spotting, some minor restorations of wormholes (mostly marginal: a1, a2, and b5 have minimal losses), trimmed into running title and foliation marks on a few leaves, leaves 42 & 43 loose but present.

Item Description: Bernardinius Vitalis February, 1525, Venice, 1525. FIRST EDITION. 4to. 139, [5] leaves (1 blank and 4 errata). Title in red and black within a fine ornamental woodcut border, beautiful historiated initials and numerous woodcut text diagrams. Eighteenth-century vellum, ties; interior with wide margins, contemporary ownership signature and very minor soiling on title, otherwise an excellent clean copy. First edition of this celebrated work on the physiology, biology, natural history and embryology of Aristotle by Leonico Tomeo, with his commentaries and questions. Of major significance is one of the earliest printed commentaries on Plato's Timaeus, a mythical theory of the universe of phenomena-physiology, nutrition, respiration, disease, and locomotion.This work probably contains the first commentary on dentistry, together with two illustrations of dental forceps holding an extracted tooth (Mechanica, ff. 41). We have been unable to find any reference to earlier illustrated works on the subject. Garrison cites the earliest illustration of dentistry is symbolized in G. Spagna's fresco of its patroness, Saint Apollonia (holding an extracted tooth in a forceps) in the church of San Giacomo, near Spoleta in 1526, a year after this book appeared. Garrison & Morton, 3667, records Artzney Büchlein, 1530 as the first book on dentistry -- published five years after the present work.Leonico Tomeo (1456-1531), classical scholar and an author of extraordinary beauty and style, influenced the return of attention to the original Greek text of Aristotle, and opened a new era in the academic study of his works.

Woodcut printer' s device of Sessa depicting cat with mouse in its jaws on title-page and below colophon of first part, and below colophon of third part. Small gothic letter. Display gothic. Illustrated with woodcuts of mathematical and astronomical interest. Register. Sidenotes. A4, B8, C6, D-N8, O4, P6; AA-PP8, QQ6, AAa-CCc8, [DDd2] ; 108; 126; 26 ll. 3 parts in 2 volumes. 4°, recent leatherette. Overall very good; internally fine. Copious sixteenth-century manuscript annotations. 3 parts in 2 volumes. ---- These volumes contain a number of works by Pierre Tartaret of the University of Paris. His @Expositio on the logical, ethical, metaphysical and natural historical writings of Aristotle, together with his commentary of the @Summulæ logicales of the thirteenth-century logician Pedro de Hispano (born Pedro Julião, between 1210 and 1220, probably in Lisbon, later Pope John XXI, the only Portuguese Pope; died 1277), and the influential introduction to Aristotelian logic, the @Isogoge of Porphyry. All the texts had been first printed in Paris individually in the 1490s and enjoyed tremendous popularity in both scholastic and humanist circles, but were not collected and printed together until after 1500 as his commentaries increasingly became used as textbooks. This edition of the commentary of Pierre Tartaret contains appendices and indexes.The second volume has a title page with: @Co[m]mentarii Magistri Petri Tatareti in libros philosophie naturalis [et] metaphysice Aristotelis. Eiusdem in Aristotelis sex ethicos libros questiones. Annotatur in marginibus si qua[n]do author: ut plerunque solet: in hisce commentarijs ex Scoto quippiam desumpserit. The third volume, with caption title, begins, "Petri Tataretti in sex libros Ethicor[um] qo[n]- // nes adiecto textu Aristotelis."Only a single copy is recorded by OCLC, and the only the copy we have located in the United States is at Yale.Both volumes have been richly annotated in Latin by at least two identifiable contemporary readers. The first reader, who has written the majority of the notes, uses a very legible and careful hand (probably Spanish or Portuguese). This reader is particularly interested in the treatises that address Aristotelian logic--the @Isogoge of Porphyry is perhaps the most extensively annotated work in the volumes--and provides essentially a marginal commentary that amplifies the text in addition to interlinear notes that clarify the text and provide synonyms. For example, on folio 12 of Porphyry, the text reads "de uno solo particulari" and the reader has written "angulari" in the margin above "particulari." The annotator also refers to other commentators on Aristotle. For example, on the verso fo folio 84 of the "meteororum", he cites Albert of Saxony in conjunction with Aristotle's discussion of snow and refers to specific sections of Albert's work where he posits that "snow and frost are of the same type." There is also an interesting reference to Duns Scotus on leaf 44 of the "Peri Hermenias". This reader has also written a number of notes vertically by shifting the book counter?clockwise 90 degrees and then writing in the remaining space between text rows.The second hand, also probably either Spanish or Portuguese, is a bit tighter and harder to read, but still legible. This reader seems to be most interested in "De Anima" as the majority of his notes appear in this work: a number of them appear on the verso of folio 94 and the recto of folio 95.---- Not in Mortimer.

Item Description: Paris, Henri Estienne, 1505. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Folio. ff. [210]. a-p8 q6; a10; a-d8, e4; A-D8, E6. Lettre Batard, some Greek. Title printed in red within beautiful decorative woodcut border in black incorporating the arms of the University of Paris, capital spaces with guide letters, small woodcut diagrams and tables, “Sum Rimoldi van Nyevelaer fuisco discensis medici. Non est mortale quod opto. A° 1605” ms. on title “Nunc Carmelilarum Thenensium. Ex liberali dono R. D Joˆis Hemelarii, Canonici Antwerpiensis Anno 1635. 18 Septemb. orate pro eo” beneath, contemporary marginal annotations, T-p dusty, occasional light dust soiling in upper margin in places, old repair to extreme lower outer corner of title and next eight leaves, light waterstains in margins in a few places. A very good copy, on thick, crisp paper with good margins, some lower margins untrimmed, in modern calf antique, all edges red. Extremely rare edition of the of Ethics of Aristole published for the University of Paris, printed here for the first time by Henry Estienne, from the unfindable incunable edition of Jean Higman and Wolfgang Hopyl, 1497. The work is divided into four parts, including three different Latin translations of the Nicomachean Ethics, the third translation (attributed to Grosseteste) is sometimes attributed wrongly to Henricus Krosbein, the other two are by Leonardo Aretino and Joannes Arguropoulos with Lefèvre d'Etaples' and Giorgio Valla’s commentary. The work also includes a short poem by Baptista Mantuanus. Panzer states that Henri Estienne might have been involved with the printing of the 1497 version of this text as he is thought to have begun his illustrious career at Hopyl’s press. This is one of the first major works published separately by Henri Estienne (there is as yet no indication of his name on the title) and as such is one of the foundation stones of French scholarly printing and marks the beginning of Aristotelian humanism in France; the Estienne family would continue this tradition for the next 160 odd years. Henri Estienne worked chiefly in collaboration with three scholars, Charles Boville, Josse Clictou and most particularly Jacques Lefèvre d'Étaples all of whom were associated with the University of Paris. Lefevre d’Etaples commentary was the most influential and important of the time in France and firmly established Aristotelian Humanism at the heart of the French curriculum. Henri Estienne’s press is not as reputed as his son’s for the beauty of their typography, though his works are finely printed, but he made major advances in the quality and accuracy of his printing. This work is rare, worldcat gives six locations only and no copy has appeared at auction according to Abpc. The Johannis Hemelarii, who donated this book to the Carmelites of Thenenses, was the author of “Imperatorum Romanorum numismata aurea, arte in aes incisa” published at Antwerp in 1627. He corresponded regularly with Hugo Grotius who referred to him in his correspondence as ‘doctissme’, or ‘eruditissime’. We have been unable to find the Van Nyevelaer who was the earlier owner of this work. His motto, taken from Ovid’s story of Phaethon, was also used by Jonathan Swift in conjunction with his ms. ex-libris. A very good copy of this important, rare and beautifully printed work.

Item Description: Florence, Lorenzo Torrentino, 1550. 4to, pp. 547, [13] (last leaf blank), title within woodcut border, historiated initials; diagrams in the text; light foxing to a few gatherings and small dampmark to the corner of a few leaves; contemporary limp-vellum with manuscript title to spine, front fore-edge lightly lightly gnawed, otherwise a fine copy. First Italian translation of Aristotle's Nichomachean Ethics, reprinted the following year in Venice. Bernardo Segni (1504-1558) studied Greek and Latin at Padua. Through the influence of his maternal uncle, Niccolo Capponi, he became a public servant. It was these years spent in the service of his uncle that provided him with raw materials that he later fashioned into his best known work, the Storie Fiorentine. Segni was known as a pensive and reclusive scholar who was devoted to his scholarly pursuits and his reputation for wisdom and clear thinking brought him to the attention of Cosimo I, the dedicatee of his translation of the Nichomachean Ethics. Cosimo sent him on many diplomatic missions including a meeting with the brother of Charles V, Ferdinand, King of Rome. In the late 1540's and early 1550's Segni translated a number of Aristotle's works into Italian. His translation of the Rhetoric and Poetics, Rettorica e Poetica (1549), and the Politics, Trattato dei governi di Aristotile (1549), were also printed in Florence by Torrentino. His translation of Aristotle's On the Soul, was published posthumously in 1583. Brunet says that one cannot easily find this translation.Not in Adams; Brunet A-467. Bookseller Inventory # H1551

Schweiger and Hoffmann record a Colines edition in 1522 (apart of those in 1524 and 1533) but that one seems to be a mistake: verifiable in 1522 is only an edition with Aristotle's ethical works by Colines. With the issue of the collected works presented here Aristotle (384 - 322 B.C.) can be considered "The founder of biology and . first of all Zoologists". There is a wide variety of themes, as shown from the following titles: "The origination of animals", "the history [actually types] of animals", "The motion of animals.", "Anatomy ." The fact that Aristotle left the research into botany to his friend and pupil, Theophrast, resulted in the first three works of Aristotle generally being issued together with the works of Theophrast in the Incunabula editions and in numerous editions throughout the 16th century and only relatively later on were the zoological works of the philosopher issued together.

Item Description: heirs of Andreas Wechel, Frankfurt am Main, 1585. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 4to (216 x 163mm). [8], 493pp., [3]. Woodcut printer’s device of Wechel depicting Pegasus over a caduceus, pairs of cornucopia, a handshake and monograms AW on title and final verso leaf. Woodcut initial and headpiece on opening leaf. Greek text. 17th-century limp vellum with calligraphic spine title in ink ‘ARISTOTLE PROBLEMATA’; (spine darkened; contents lightly toned with age but intermittently heavier, early underlining on opening leaves.) Leipzig University stamp on title "duplicate." Overall good, attractive copy of a rare Aristotelian work with some early underlining adding interest. Aristotle’s ‘Problemata’, a "beautiful and correct edition", extremely scarce. All the volumes in Wechel’s Frankfurt editions of Aristotle’s works did not appear at the same time and they are not numbered. Yet we know this volume is seven, of eleven, in the series printed in Frankfurt from 1584 to 1587. A main proponent for this work, Freidrich Sylburg (1536-1596), was a German classical scholar who eventually came to work for the enterprising publisher Andreas Wechel in Frankfurt. Sylburg was a respected corrector and editor of Greek texts and during his Frankfurt period he edited many volumes for Wechel’s press among Aristotle, Pausanias, Herodotus, and Dionysius Halicarnassensis. During the height of this publishing phase, Wechel expanded into the lucrative textbook market, specializing in Ramist publications and school and university classics. This series along with historical and medical books accounts for a high percentage of his output. From the start, Wechel set out in an explicit and determined fashion to become known as a publisher of history books for the educated public of the German-speaking world. Aristotelian texts were highly valued by the educated classes in throughout the Renaissance. Scarcely found, along with is sibling editions, in market or institutional collections. See Moss, J.

The Venice-born Greek of Albanian descent, a student of Demetrios Chalkondylas in Florence, taught philosophy at Padova from 1497 onwards and is said to be the first modern scholar to have based his Aristotle lectures on the original Greek text. Influenced by Marsilius Ficino and Pico della Mirandola, Leonico tried to wed the Platonic doctrine of ideas to Aristotle's psychology. He turned down the Venetian chair of Greek (left vacant by Giorgio Valla), but assisted Aldus Manutius.

Item Description: In Vinegia Appresso Bartholomeo detto l'Imperadore & Francesco suo genero, 1551. Small 8vo, 157 x 102 mms., 343 + [5] leaves, title within decorative woodcut, contemporary vellum (worn and defective); last leaf of index with piece torn from lower corner (not affecting text), lower panel on binding missing, vellum a bit cracked and worn and rear cover with lower portion removed. With the decorative plate of Francisci Bracchini of the recto of the front free end-paper and the smaller bookplate of Marino Parenti on the verso. A rather shabby binding, but a clean and bright text. The humanist scholar Bernardo Segni (1504 - 1588) translated a number of Aristotle's works, but he was just one of several who were doing so. "Segni then outlines some main themes of Aristotle's Ethics, distinguishing in the first place active from speculative happiness and claiming that the speculative kind is more noble than the active. However, Segni continues, since most people find the speculative kind unattainable, his discussion will center on practical, active happiness, which is the result of exercising virtues such as temperance, fortitude, and justice. Segni also emphasizes two important points about moral virtue: not only must it be actively exercised, rather than lying dormant, but it can only be produced freely, that is, not through compulsion. Segni thus sets up a calculated swipe at Lutheranism, with its asumptions that the will is not free and that faith alone is able to bring one to eternal happiness" (David Lines: "Rethinking Renaissance Aristotelianism: Bernardo Segni's Ethica, the Florentine Academy, and the Vernacular in Sixteenth-Century Italy" in Renaissance Quarterly 66, 3, (2013). Lines concludes by noting "Thus, from the philosophical, philological, interpretive, and visual points of view, Segni's Ethica presents its readers with a number of interesting surprises. The teaching and publishing programs of the Accademia Fiorentina (and of other academies) continue to require investigation, but the importance of the vernacular element within the landscape of Renaissance Aristotelianism is becoming increasingly clear, as this and other recent studies can confirm. Although scholars have done well to emphasize the importance of Renaissance Aristotelianism, this movement was not confined to Latin, university-based works: those written in the vernacular also deserve to be inventoried and studied in detail. More generally, scholars need to pay closer attention to the interactions between vernacular and Latin Aristotelianism. Just as the category of vernacular humanism now makes perfect sense,154 so the label of Aristotelianism will need to be understood anew, as embracing both Latin and vernacular works."

Item Description: London, 1749. [Aristotle: suppositious works.] Four standard 18th-century guides to sex and procreation, neatly bound in a single volume, as described below. London: 1749. Together four vols. in one, 12mo, contemporary sheep. A complete set of four sex manuals, in exceptionally good condition. These texts were all frequently reprinted, and various editions were occasionally gathered together with a general title-page, but it is clear that none was ever present here. All printings are uncommon, and some have no doubt vanished entirely; surviving copies tend to be in mediocre condition at best. Included here are the following: (1) Aristotle's compeat masterpiece. In three parts; displaying the secrets of nature in the generation of man: regularly digested into chapters and sections, rendering it far more useful and easy than any yet extant. To which is added, a treasure of health; or, the family physician: being choice and approved remedies for all the several distempers incident to human bodies. London: printed and sold by the booksellers, 1749. 144 pp., including a crude woodcut frontispiece. "Twenty-third edition." With illustrations in the text. The most popular of the pseudo-Aristotle titles. (2) Aristotle's compleat and experienc'd midwife. In two parts. I. Guide for child-bearing women, in the time of their conception, bearing and suckling their children; with the best means of helping them, both in natural and unnatural labours: together with suitable remedies for the various indispositions of new-born infants. II. Proper and safe remedies or the curing all those distempers that are incident to the female sex; and more especially those that are any obstruction to their bearing of children. A work far more perfect than any yet extant; and highly necessary for all surgeons, midwives, nurses, and child-bearing women. Made English by W--- S----, M.D. London: printed and sold by the booksellers, n.d. (ca. 1749). (4), iv, 156, (4) pp., including a woodcut frontispiece. "Tenth edition." First published in 1700, with a second edition in 1711, and a third in 1718. (3) Aristotle's book of problems, with other astronomers, astrologers, physicians, and philosophers. Wherein is contained divers questions and answers touching the state of man's body. Together with the reasons of divers wonders in the creation: the generations of birds, beasts, fishes, and insects; and many other problems on the most weighty matters, by way of question and answer. London: printed for J. W. / J. K. / G. C. / D. M. / A. B. / E. M. / R. R. / J. O. and L. / B. M. / and A. W., n.d. (ca. 1749). "Twenty-fifth edition." (4), 152 pp., including a woodcut frontispiece. This is the most archaic of the pseudo-Aristotle texts, with the first recorded edition dated 1607. (4) Aristotle's last legacy. Unfolding the mystery of nature in the generation of man. London: printed for R. Ware, C. Hitch, and J. Hodges, 1749. (8), 112 pp., including a woodcut frontispiece. This text is essentially an abridged and re-arranged version of Aristotle's Masterpiece; it was first printed ca. 1720. A few leaves at the end a bit stained in the upper corner, but essentially in excellent condition throughout. Bookseller Inventory # B5977
