Item Description: per Eusebium Episcopium, 1570. Couverture rigide. - per Eusebium Episcopium, Basilae (Bâle) 1570, in Folio (32,2x21,5cm), (8) 251pp. 24., Un Vol. relié. - Une édition illustrée similaire, mais avec une collation différente, a été éditée en Suisse en 1549 chez un autre éditeur. La première édition des fables date de 1535 et celles de l'astronomie poétique de 1475. Reliure en demi Veau chocolat milieu XIXe. Dos lisse, filets dorés et à froid. Plats de papier à la cuve refaits récemment. Une mouillure claire sur l'ensemble de l'ouvrage partant de la marge supérieure et s'étendant sur un court tiers de la page. Texte en grec et en latin. Illustré de 48 vignettes. Un des plus célèbres livres de mythologie dans lequel Hyginus décrit les constellations et leurs corrélations mythologiques. Les Fables et L'Astronomie poétique sont les principales oeuvres d'Hygenus, un érudit du Ier siècle. Hyginus a travaillé sur des sources grecques aujourd'hui disparues, notamment Arastus et Erathostène, ce qui en fait toute leur valeur. Le livre rassemble quelque 300 mythes et généalogies célestes, illustrés de 48 vignettes représentant les figures du zodiaque, le soleil et la lune, et les planètes. Un des cratères de la Lune a été nommé Hygénis, en hommage à son livre sur l'astronomie. Hyginus vint d'Espagne ou d'Alexandrie à Rome comme esclave ou prisonnier de guerre, il fut plus tard affranchi par Auguste puis nommé directeur de la bibliothèque Palatine selon Suetone. On le compte parmi les amis d'Ovide. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] An illustrated edition similar, but with a different collation, was published in Switzerland in 1549 with another publisher. The first edition of fables date of 1535 and those of the poetic Astronomy 1475. Half Calf chocolate nineteenth environment. Smooth spine, gilt fillets and cold. boards handmade paper recently redone. A clear wetting the entire structure from the upper margin and extending a short-thirds of the page. Text in Greek and Latin. Illustrated with 48 vignettes. One of the most famous books of mythology in which Hyginus describes the constellations and their mythological correlations. Fables and Astronomy are the major poetic works of Hygenus, a scholar of the first century. Hyginus worked on Greek sources now lost, including Arastus and Eratosthenes, which makes their value. The book brings together some 300 myths and genealogies celestial, illustrated with 48 vignettes representing figures of the zodiac, the sun and the moon, and planets. One of the craters on the Moon was named Hygénis, in homage to his book on astronomy. Hyginus came from Spain or Alexandria to Rome as a slave or prisoner of war, he was later freed by Augustus then appointed director of the Palatine library according to Suetonius. It is one of the friends of Ovid. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! (8) 251pp. 24.

Famous collection of late antique works on astronomy and mythography.

Hyginus, the Spanish-born second prefect of the Palatine Library, compiled his extensive manual ab. 25 B.C. The Phaenomena of Aratos (fl. 275 A.D.) are of special importance for their lasting influence on Roman and Renaissance thought. Fulgentius' Mythologicon, which dates from the beginning of the 6th century, likewise was of great influence especially on the iconography of Renaissance art. At the end Proclus' (410-85 A.D.) work on the sphere. The woodcut illustrations, in the manner of Weiditz, show signs of the Planets and the Zodiac. Bookseller Inventory # 001809

A nice copy in contemporary blind-stamped pigskin over wooden bds., dated ‘1571’ on upper cover (some wear to spine, joints & corners, some spotting to upper cover, clasps lacking but brass catches present, small marginal tear in last leaf with slight loss of headline on recto, paper label on upper spine). from the Fürstenberg Court Library at Donaeuschingen, with small rubberstamp on title. Second Enlarged Edition of this collection of mythological and astronomical texts edited by J.Mycillus. The first edition of 1535 marked the first appearance in print of the Fables, a handbook of mythology compiled from Greek sources, probably in the second century, and based on a manuscript which has since been lost. The Poeticon Astronomicon, an elementary treatise on astronomy and the myths associated with the constellations, was first printed at Ferrara in 1475. Ratdolt’s illustrated edition of 1482 contained the earliest representations of the personified figures of the sun, moon, planets, and stars. There is some doubt as to the attribution of both the Fables and the Poeticon Astronomicon to Caius Julius Hyginus, a learned man and friend of Ovid, who was appointed librarian of the Palatine Library in Rome by Emperor Augustus, and the works are sometimes ascribed to another Hyginus from a later period. Among the other Greek and Latin texts included here are the Phaenomena of Aratus, the De Sphaera of Proclus, and the mythological handbooks of Palaephatus and Fulgentius. Adams H1252.
